On first Torrey


Pines visit, Crist


bolsters biotech


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE Gov.
Charlie Crist, after touring
laboratories at Torrey
Pines Institute for Molecu-
lar Studies last week,
affirmed his support for
the booming biotechnolo-
gy industry in personal
terms. His father, who suf-
fers from an eye disease
called macular degenera-
tion, could one day receive
treatments being devel-
oped by the research pow-
erhouse and its spinoff
companies.
"I'm very excited about
the possibility of cures,"
Mr. Crist said after a brief
tour of the temporary Tor-
rey Pines headquarters.
And diversifying the state
economy, he added, "is


one of the best ways we
can make sure that it stays
stable and constant"
During the Nov. 27 tour,
the Republican governor
talked with Dr. Colette
Dooley, who explained
how she works to unlock
jellyfish proteins in the
search for new pain thera-
pies.
To aid researchers devel-
oping treatments for AIDS,
Alzheimer's disease, dia-
betes and other afflictions,
Florida has invested $32
million in the institute.
"What's happening here
is terribly impressive, and
I'm committed to it," Mr.
Crist said. "I want to make
sure that we continue to
push forward as far as we
can."

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A
techno song with a staccato beat
thumped from the TV, the volume
turned way up. On neat rows of
mats, elementary school students
stamped their feet in unison, try-
ing to keep up with the frenzied
procession of arrows on the TV
screen.
"They don't even realize that
dioy're exercising," said Vickie
Fielder, a physical education
teacher at Beachland Elementary
School for the last 14 years.
To fight childhood obesity, the
Indian River County School Dis-
trict has drafted an unlikely ally:
"Dance Dance Revolution," a
heart-pounding video game that
works feet instead of thumbs.
With money from a federal grant,
the district bought new class-
room electronics and 19 "Dance
Dance Revolution" units a
Sony PlayStation 2 game system
and plastic mats.
Teachers across the district
began rolling out the mats earlier
this fall. Each week, hundreds of
students kick off their sneakers
and test their footwork to thud-
ding electronic music and caf-


feinated versions of pop songs.
Elementary schools, tasked this
year with providing an additional
150 minutes of physical activity
per week, have enlisted "DDR."
"It's a great tool just to get the
kids active," said Terrie Rogers, a
Sebastian River High School PE
teacher and one of the authors of
the grant proposal.
Teachers. who initially won-
dered how they would shoehorn
more into a packed day, now use
"DDR" as a classroom motivator.
Sara Murto. a fourth-grade
teacher at Sebastian Elementary
School, rewards her students for
completing homework on time
with a round of the game. .
"I get no zeros because they all
want to come down for 'DDR,'"
she said.
"DDR" is essentially an aerobic
workout disguised as a video
game. Arrows blitz past on the
screen, directing players to move
their feet this way or that, in a dif-
ferent combination for each
song. Players can dance alone,
with a partner, or, like in PE class-
es around the district, with
dozens of classmates. Points are
awarded based on the fanciness

Document your sources


m genealogy


You've been researching
your family and entering
names, dates and other
pieces of the puzzle, but
have you noted where you
obtained this information?
Will you remember where
you found it, next month,
year, or 10 years from now?
The answer is a guaranteed
no.
So, starting today, docu-
ment everything before you
get too far down the road
and have to backtrack. This
will help your research
tremendously in the future,
when you need to find that
elusive bit of information
that will help you climb the
inevitable brick wall. It also
gives other researchers con-
fidence in your work.
When I first started
researching, I excitedly took
down every fact I found.
Of course it was correct; it
was right there on the offi-
cial document, in the book
at the library, or because
grandmother said so.
Fortunately, I did get
copies of most of the official
documents, or can remem-
ber where the tombstone is,
but I didn't actually docu-
ment it in my database.
There are still many facts
in my database that are not
documented properly. It is
still one of my major down-
falls, getting caught up in the
story and not wanting to
take the time to document.
Sending your genealogy
out into the world without
citing your sources is send-
ing it out with no validation.

Treasure Coast
Genealogical Society
Almost invariably, when I
find some exciting new fact
about my ancestor, there is
no source given. This leaves
me totally in the dark.
Exactly where did this date,
spouse name, etc., come
from?
Someone must have
known, but chances are, the
person that put the informa-
tion on the Internet, or in the
book, just copied it from
someone else, who also
copied it from someone.
As far as I know, it could
have, and might as well be,
just made up to suit the pur-
pose.
Each fact recorded for your
ancestor should be docu-
mented'with exactly where it
was obtained.
A source, regardless of how
informal, is where we
obtained the information. It
may have come from a pro-
bate record, family Bible,
census record, or from
grandma Beth.
Everything needed for
another researcher to find
this source should be
included. This leaves a trail
for you, as well as others
who want to follow your line


of descent.
Traditionally, sources have
been classified as primary
and: secondary. A primary
record is one created close to
the event, by a person rea-
sonably knowledgeable
about the event.
A secondary record is one
that was created sometime
later. The distinction is not
always clear. So a secondary
source should always be
backed up with other
sources, a primary one when
possible.
All that said, there are no
sources that are guaranteed
as being correct. Death cer-
tificates often contain wrong
information, with the
informant not knowing the
birth date or the names of
the parent's of the deceased.
Tombstones also frequent-
ly contain incorrect infor-
mation. A relative in our
family is actually buried
under the wrong name.
This makes a strong case for
thoroughly researching each
person and finding as many
sources as you can.
The more sources you find,
the better conclusion you
can come to as to which is,
the correct data.
With the tremendous
amount of information
being put on the Web, you
must always remember that
it is all suspect until you
have personally verified that
it is correct.
Never download someone
else's information into your
work until you document it
and are satisfied that the
preponderance of evidence
shows that this data belongs
to your family.
Trying to sort out unrelat-
ed individuals, much less
whole family groups from

Torrey Pines President
Richard Houghten, who led
the.tour, said later he was
pleased the governor
chose to focus on the
biotech industry. '
On his daylong swing
through South Florida, Mr.
Crist also stopped at the
Scripps Research Institute,
which is expanding its
Jupiter campus.
"It's been sort of a
biotech day for me," the
governor said.
Torrey Pines is building a
100,000-square-foot cam-
pus in western Port St.
Lucie, scheduled for com-
pletion in 2009. Until then,
the institute is working


from temporary labs at
Harbor Branch Oceano-
graphic Institution.
At Torrey Pines, the gov-
ernor offered support for
the Florida Innovation
Incentive Fund $250
million legislators set
aside to attract new
biotech companies to the
state.
Florida used the incen-
tives last year to bring Tor-
rey Pines to St. Lucie County.
and The Burnham Institute'

Orlando. Palm Beach Coun-
ty is hoping to tap into the
fund to bring the Max
Planck Society, a German
research giant, to Jupiter.

lons of soup, from 60 restaurants and 10 individuals, for sale. Long-time supporters like Caldwell Bankers Ed Schlitt
Realtors help keep the program going according to co-chair Merry Parent. Last year the Soup Bowl raised over $18,000.

Volunteers re-create bygone Christmas


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH Outside
the stately Hallstrom House,
a line stretched from the
front porch and on down the
walk. All told, more than 500
people toured the house last
weekend, clacking across its
hardwood floors and climb-
ing its evergreen-lined
stairs.'
For the first time since it
was damaged during the
2004 hurricanes, the 89-
year-old structure wel-
comed guests for a holiday
open house. Organizers
from the Indian River Coun-
ty Historical Society, which
owns and maintains the for-
mer pineapple plantation,
were surprised by the Dec. 2
turnout.
"This proves that people
are interested in history,"
said Elizabeth Helseth
Armistead, a member of the


historical society board who
grew up near the Hallstrom
House. During her child-
hood, she celebrated Christ-
mases and other special
occasions at the plantation.
Back then, Mrs. Armistead
recalled, she ate traditional
Scandinavian sweets
around a tree decorated the
candles.
Inside the living room, a
Douglas fir was festooned
with bows and vintage
Christmas cards sent to
Ruth Hallstrom, the farm-
stead's last occupant. Ms.
Hallstrom lived in the house
until her death in 1999,.and
bequeathed the five-acre
site to the historical society.
Today, the three-story
house is filled with antiques,
including Ms. Hallstrom's
narrow, metal-frame bed
and Parisian clothing she
bought on her world travels.
At the open house, histori-
cal society volunteers told


stories about Ms. Hallstrom,
including one about the
Corvette she drove to deliver
fresh eggs to the Piggly Wig-
gly.
Her father, Swedish immi-
grant Axel Hallstrom, moved
to modern-day Indian River
County in 1904. He attained
success by growing pineap-
ple in the subtropical cli-
mate.
Craig Fletcher, a member
of the county Planning and
Zoning Commission and a
former Vero Beach mayor,
recalled riding his bike past
the Hallstrom House when
he was a boy.
In those days, the house,
south of Oslo Road on Old
Dixie Highway, was "in the
backcountry," he said.
Once the historical society
took ownership of the
house, volunteers began
cataloguing its contents and
readying it for public dis-
play. In 2002, the house was


added to the National Regis-
ter of Historic Places.
Before the Hallstrom
House could open to the
public, a pair of natural dis-
asters delayed those plans. *
During Hurricane Frances
a microburst, similar to a
small tornado, damaged the
roof, tearing off shingles and
cracking plaster walls. Hur-
ricane Jeanne tore through
three weeks later, exacerbat-
ing the damage.
. Today, the historical soci-
ety plans to turn the newly
repaired house into a hub in
a network of nature trails
and Old Florida exhibits.
Indian River County bought
100 surrounding acres and
earmarked them for preser-
vation.
Ruth Stanbridge, the
county Ihistorian and a
member of the historical
society board, said the soci-

REVIEW

'A' schools receive cash from state senator
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY For achieving an A' rank-
ing from the state Department of Education, Sebastian
Elementary and other district schools received a visit
from Sen. Mike Haridopolos last week.
Mr. Haridopolos, an Indialantic Republican, stopped
by the campuses Nov. 29 to deliver oversized cardboard
checks, which the schools were awarded for high marks
on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
At Sebastian Elementary, principal Pat Donovan
accepted the $57,351 check during the school's closed-
circuit television morning announcements.
"Whatever we do, we do to the very best of our ability,"
Mrs. Donovan said.
For Sebastian Elementary, this was its sixth consecu-
tive year earning an 'A' from the state.
Across the Indian River County School District, 15 of
the 26 district schools received money this year through
the Florida School Recognition Program more than
$950,000 total.
Schools receive $100 per full-time student based on
enrollment the previous year. Statewide, more than
1,600 schools were recognized this year.
Under state law, schools may use the award money for
faculty and staff bonuses, new classroom equipment or
to hire temporary personnel to enhance student per-
formance.
Mr. Haridopolos represents mainland Indian Rivet
County, and parts of Brevard, Osceola and St. Lucie
counties.

Men land in hot water
for aquatic plant theft
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Florida Department of
Environmental Protection special agents arrested two
men for illegally harvesting thousands of aquatic plants
from a conservation area in Indian River County.
Chad Bates of Fort Pierce, owner of Bates Plants, was
charged with one count each of grand theft and petit
theft. His brother Keith Bates of Okeechobee was
charged with one count of grand theft.
In January, DEP agents began investigating the Bates
brothers after receiving a tip from the Indian River Sher-
iff's Office about suspicious aquatic plant harvesting.
Agents observed workers for Chad Bates removing
duck potato, water lilies, and others plants from public
and private waterways including a water conserva-
tion area in Indian River County.
The nursery would then sell the aquatic plants to area
governments, developers, and private homeowners,
DEP said.
"Environmental crimes, like the illegal harvesting of
aquatic plants, can potentially harm our natural
resources and impact our quality of life, and will not be
tolerated," Henry Barnet, director of the DEP Division of

Most come in to buy a gift for
that special someone in their
life and they are looking for
direction as to what to buy.
Well, here's my advice when
shopping for a gift of jewelry.
You should answer a few
questions to yourself first.
The number one question is,
what is your budget? A lot of
people answer that it doesn't
matter and they'll look and
see what they like. This
almost never works because
the average consumer does-
n't know by just looking how
much something Is. If you are
dealing with a well trained
jewelry professional and give
them a realistic budget, they
will ask you the appropriate
questions to fit you into the
right gift. Everyone has a
budget, be it $50 or $5,000.
If you are looking at some-
thing that is way beyond
your means, then you are
wasting precious shopping
time and emotions falling in
love with something you
can't afford. You'll find your-
self being sold something
you don't want and regret-
ting it later. Budget buying
will keep that economic
grinch from stealing your
christmas. If the person
standing on the other side of

several hundred protest-
ers ready for a march to
the Sheriff's Office.

according to the report,
threatened the deputies
with a pocketknife. The
deputies .hit Mr. Green
twice with a Taser, but
the weapon had. no
effect.
Deputy William Luther
then fired a shotgun
blast, hitting the suspect.
in the torso. Mr. Green,
43, died later at Holmes
Regional Medical Center
in Melbourne.
Five days before the
Dec. 1 march, Sheriff Roy
Raymond held a three-
hour meeting with 23
community leaders.
"We gave them as much
information as we could"
about the internal inves-
tigation of the incident,
he said.
Both the Sheriff's
Office and the State
Attorney's Office are
investigating the inci-
dent. The three deputies
were placed on'adminis-
trative leave.
Mr. Green's older sister,
Lenora Cartwright,
climbed into the back of
a pickup truck and.
addressed the crowd in
the Sheriff's Office park-


ing lot.
"I really hope you never
have to live through
this," she said.
Earlier; she described
her late brother as "a very
caring, sharing person."
Family members and
friends said Mr. Green
had a history of depres-
sion and emotional prob-
lems, which may have
influenced his behavior,
they said.
At the end of the
march, protesters called
for the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforce-
ment to investigate the
shooting, and collected
signatures for a petition
to Gov. Charlie Crist.
"This is about system-
atic insensitivity to our
community from law
enforcement," said the
Rev. William Richardson
of Grace Baptist Church
in Port St. Lucie. Mr.
Richardson is the local
representative for the
National Action Network,
the civil rights group led
by the Rev. Al Sharpton.
"We wanted to express
our outrage in an organ-
ized and civilized man-


ner," Mr.
said.


Richardson


Protestors were un'de-
terred by drizzling rain
during the two-hour,
four-mile march-from the
courthouse to the Sher-
iff's Office. Some
marchers carried signs
that read, "In God we
trust, not cops."
Two Sheriff's Office
patrol cruisers, their blue
lights flashing, escorted
the marchers. North-
bound traffic on U.S. 1
was limited to a single
lane as protesters walked
north. Officers closed
41st Street to traffic as
the marchers neared the
Sheriff's Office head-
quarters.
"It's about time for us
to do this," said Billy
Donley, a lifelong Gifford
resident who was friends
with Mr. Green.
Richard Richmond of
Vero Beach joined the
march for similar rea-
sons.
"This is enough," he
said. "We need better
policy and procedures in
place,"

Thank You Sebastian,
For Your Generous Support

, The Lions Club of Sebastian wishes to thank our com-
munity, visitors and friends for their support during our
recent White Cane Days fundraising event.
All contributions are used 100 percent in Sebastian
and surrounding communities. Your generous support
enables us to continue eye screenings in our schools and
providing eye exams and eyeglasses for the less fortu-
nate. In addition to these services, we also send area
children and adults with visual and multiple handicaps
to the Florida Lions Camp, which is an exciting experi-
ence for them. In June of each year we select two Sebas-
tian River High School seniors who each receive a $1,000
scholarship for their continuing education.
We thank you for your generous support in helping the
children and adults in your own community. A special
thank you goes to the Sebastian Wal Mart, the Roseland
Publix Store and Winn-Dixie on
CR 512 for allowing us to solicit funds at their stores.
Our next campaign will be held in February of 2008 at
these same stores.

Deliver on time, please

This rant is to Hometown News, who produce a phe-
nomenal paper, but don't get their deliveries out on
time. My whole family enjoys reading it, but we want it
on time.

Say no to drugs

Drugs are for whims and weaklings. We shall take back
our communities one and then two, then four, etc. We
are on the winning team and stand tall in troubled times.
Losers are those that use illegal narcotics and they are
smucks and they hurt innocent victims.


More respect is needed
We need more respect toward all races, creeds and colors.
When laws are broken, the punishment must fit the crimes. We
must help the victims of crime and send a message to those
who violate our laws. We must never let our guard down. Our
law enforcement officials and armed forces must have the
power they need to stop those that have no respect for God and
country.
Honor the children

Cookies can make visiting Web sites easier


T his week I thought I'd
write about a topic
that makes people
almost as nervous as
viruses.
I'm sure everyone reading
this has at one time or
another heard about
"cookies" and how they let
people on the Internet watch
your every move.
Iwant to dismantle some
of these fears and shed some
light on the computer's
infamous cookie jar.
Contrary to common
belief, there's not a bunch of
caffeine-crazed hackers out
there sitting up late at night,
following trails of cookies
and monitoring where
people go online. Frankly,
who cares?Why would
someone want to follow my
progress as I casually
wander through cyberspace?
Not understanding just


what cookies are just gives
them a big-brotherish air of
mystery.
Cookies are files that are
left on aWeb surfer's hard
drive that allows aWeb site
keep track of information
about that user. This is a
method that some Web-
developers use so people
don't have to keep entering
the same information every
time they hit that page.;
For instance, let's say you
go to aWeb site that will give
you the weather in 12
different locations and show
you its effect on 12 different
stocks (believe me, there are
stranger sites out there).
When you go to this site, you
have to enter in the 12
locations that you want the
weather from and then enter
in the 12 stock symbols that
you want to track. You would
have to re-enter all 24 items


every time you visit the site.
This can get kind of tedious
and, since no one likes
tedious, Web developers
invented cookies.
Now, let's suppose the site
we just went to used cookies.
The first time you visit, you
entered a user name and
password,.then your 12
weather locations and the 12
.,.stocks youwant to monitor.
The Web site adds a line to a
file on your computer called,
"cookies.txt." All of your
preferences for this Web site
are stored in this cookie, so
every time you visit that site,
the data from the cookie is
used.
Bingo. All of your weather
choices and stock symbols
load automatically every
time you visit the site.
With that brief explana-
tion of cookies, you can see
that cookies are.not this big

menace to Internet privacy,
but actually a tool that
makes surfing the Internet
easier and less frustrating.
Still not convinced?
There are a couple things
yotI can do to lessen your
exposure to cookies, if you
feel that strongly about
them.


The first, and I guess
easiest thing you can do is go
into your Web browser's
settings and turn on the,
"v.arn before act epting
cookie" option.
Turning think on wilL-force
your browser to ask you if
you a.ant to accept a cookie
every time one is encoun-
tered and give you ayes or
no choice.
Another thing you can do
is click "start," then "search,"
then click "all files or folders"
and enter "cookies" in the
little "all or part of a file
name" window. NMake sure
"all hard drives" is in the'
"look in" window and then
click the "search" button.
Windows will search your
computer for your cookies
folder. It should find a
cookies folder onyour hard
drive in "documents and
settings\your Windows user


name."
Double click the folder to
open it and you will see all
the different Web sites that
have left cookies on your
machine. If you want to
.remove one, just delete the
:line that has the cookie you
want gone. Or, delete them
all. Just remember, if you-
nuke all the cookies on your
machine, all those sites that
load what you want auto-
matically will have no idea.
who you are and you'll have
to re-enter all that stuff you
entered the first time you
visited.
Well, that's cookies in a
nutshell. Until next week,
happy computing.

This year, give gifts of health and wellness


Gift-giving is such an
important part of the
holiday season, and
while I can't offer any
suggestions that will make
yo4 wealthy, I can certainly
help with healthy.
Try to use your imagina-
tioni and come up with gifts
that don't cost a lot, but
mean a lot.
Give the gift of having fun
while learning: For chil-
dren, two catalogs, IQKids
and Free Spirit, offer toys
games and books that
stretch their minds, even if
they don't know it. From old
favorites, such as Lincoln
Logs and Lego and crafts
kits to funny books on
surviving parents and
coping with the trauma of
the teens, these two
catalogues offer a lot of
choices for parents who


want a gift that will last
more than one day.
Visit www.IQKIDS.com or
www.freespirit.com for gift
ideas...
Give the gift of you: Make
a date with your youngster
to spend time together..
doing something he or she
chooses. If it involves going
to the mall, see if you can
work a power walk in with
it, too. Give a friend who is a
caregiver the gift of an hour
to get out and run errands
or get a manicure. Offer to
baby-sit so your sister can
get to the gym or offer to
walk a friend's dog while
he's at work. Both you and
the dog get exercise that
way.
You can make up little
card or lOUs that can be
"redeemed" by the recipi-
ent.


Give the gift of motiva-
tion: If you know that
someone who wants to start
a diet or exercise program,
give them a trial member-
ship in a health club or"
wellness center. If that's a
bit intimidating or expen-
sive, ibw about a pedome-
ter or fanny pack for change
.and keys and some tapes to
listen to while walking? Or,
offer to be an exercise
buddy and walk with your
friend on a regular basis.
That's a gift for both of you.
A word of caution: A piece
of exercise equipment is
only a good investment if
you know the person wants
it and will use it. You don't
want to give a gift that says,
"go on a diet."
If you know someone
would like a treadmill or
stationary bike, let them try


SHELLEY KOPPEL'
Alive and Well
it out and make sure they're
comfortable with it. Check
with a doctor to make sure
it's appropriate, too.
Exercise videos are a fun
way to exercise and can be
used at home, in any
weather, at anytime. A good


source of news videos is at
Collage Videos. You can
view 60-second segments at
'iwhiii.'collagetideo.com.
Also, eay vapd half.comn

you'll want to make sure it's
in new or like new condi-
tion.
For someone new to.
exercise, Leslie Sansone has
a series of tapes that are
basic walking to music, with
no fancy steps to master.
They're great for beginners
or people who want to
exercise gently.
Give the gift of relaxation:
A trip to a day spa is a real
luxury, but even a facial, a
massage or pedicure makes
a treat for both men and
women. For home use, a
paraffin hand bath is a
relaxing gift for tired hands


and helps achy finger joints;
,a foot spa can relax tired
feet. Again, check with a
physician if the recipient
has medical problems.
Give the gift of good ideas:
A cookbook that empha-
sizes healthy eating is a
great gift for the cook.
Check out the American
Heart Association.and.-:... .
American Diabetes Associa-
tion for recommendations.
Other options: There are
many catalogues that offer
equipment to make the
activities of daily life easier
for people with mobility
problems.
One such catalogue,
Sammons Preston, offers a
wider variety of aids for ,
writing, eating, reaching,
bathing and other things

FEEDING THE HUNGRY


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Two-year-old Javonta Chambliss of Gifford makes short work of his Thanksgiving meal at Our Father's Table Soup
Kitchen last Thursday. Brian Danforth, who teaches culinary arts in the School Board of Indian River County Adult
Education program, brought several students to the kitchen to cook this year's holiday meal. One hundred people
were served, and 48 home-bound meals were delivered.


For thAe 19th year, Our
Father's Table Soup
Kitchen in Gifford provid-
ed a four-course Thanks-
giving dinner for the
public. Thanks to the
generosity of the Indian
River County Fire Rescue,
Christ By the Sea, Trinity
Episcopal, Sebastian River
High School, Alex McMil-
lan, and several anony-
mous donors, they were
able to feed nearly 150
people. Before the meal, 7-
year-old Jett Collins held
hands in a circle for a
prayer.

Prescription


savings on horizon


for uninsured


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- A prescription drug dis-
count that saved St. Lucie
County residents $1.3 mil-
lion is set to debut here
next month.
Drug discount cards,
available through Indian
River County government,
may afford residents an
average savings of 20 per-
cent on common prescrip-
tion medications. Most
national pharmacy chains
accept the cards, county
officials said.
The free program is
sponsored by the National
Association of Counties
and managed by Care-
mark, a pharmaceutical
services company head-
quartered in Nashville,
Tenn. Caremark negotiat-
ed with drug manufactur-
ers for the discount.
Information about card
users is not collected, but
statistics are maintained
on the number of users
and how much they save.
on medication.
Cards will be available
to any resident, though
county officials are hoping
to market the cards to the
uninsured. For an insured
resident, the cards can be
used only on prescriptions
for which the resident
does not have coverage.
And the cards can also
be used for discounts on
pet medications.
To receive a card, there
are no age or income
requirements or medical
restrictions. Additionally,
the program does not
require an enrollment
form or a membership fee.
Brad Bernauer, human
services program manager
for the county Health
Department, said the free
cards would initially be
available through county


government and the
Health Department. The
agency is also working to
make the cards available
at Senior Resource Associ-
ation centers and the
emergency rooms at Indi-
an River and Sebastian
River medical centers.
"This program is going
to fill in some of the gaps
that we have," Mr.
Bernauer told the County
Commission, which
approved the program
Nov. 20. Commissioners
green-lighted the plan in
June, and asked for county
attorneys to review the
proposal.
More than one-third of
the 67 Florida counties
participate in the drug
discount program, includ-
ing neighboring St. Lucie.
Since the program began
there in July 2006, nearly
112,000 discounted pre-
scriptions have been filled
- a savings of $1.3 mil-
lion, according to statis-
tics maintained, by the
National Association of
Counties.
By October 2007, 5,084
card users were partici-
pating in the St. Lucie
County program.
"It is a win-win from
what I have experienced,"
said Stefanie Myers, assis-
tant director for the St.
Lucie County Community
Services Department.
Free prescription dis-
count drug cards will be
available in January at the
Health Department, 1900
27th St., Vero Beach, the
Gifford Health Center,
4675 28th Court, Vero
Beach, and the county
Human Resources Depart-
ment at the .County
Administration Complex,
1801 27th St., Vero Beach.

From page A3
Law Enforcement, said in a news release. "Enforcing Flori-
da's environmental laws is an important part of DEP's mis-
sion."
Agents also said the Bates brothers harvested plants ille-
gally in Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties.
Special permits are required for harvesting aquatic plants.
Those permits detail specific areas for plant harvesting and
specific types of aqulatic plants suitable for harvesting.

St. Johns lauded for water
conservation efforts
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A national water industry
group has recognized two water-conservation programs
championed by the St. Johns River Water Management Dis-
trict.
Last month, the Florida chapter of the American Water
Works Association lauded the water district with a Best in
Class award for its Water Conservation Public Awareness
Campaign and its new FloridaWater Star program.
The water district, which owns huge swaths of Indian
River County, has advocated conservation at both the local
and state levels.
"Market research shows us that the 6-year-old Water Con-
servation Public Awareness Campaign is helping to change
people's water use habits, and we appreciate this recognition
of this program," Linda Burnette, director of the Office of
Communications and Governmental Affairs for the water
district, said in a news release. "We believe that the Florida
Water Star program will show as much success as it contin-
ues to grow."'
A water conservation campaign for 2008 is being devel-
oped, the water district said. Past campaigns have included
television advertisements, newspaper ads, radio ads, bill-
boards and aWeb site.
Florida Water Star awards points for new homes that
incorporate water-conserving devices and efforts. The pro-
gram encourages water-efficient household appliances,
plumbing fixtures, irrigation systems and landscaping.
"When you look around the nation and continue to see
the news of prolonged drought coupled with increasing
demands for water, it is easy to understand the need for such
programs," Ms. Burnette said.
In Indian River County, the water district oversees conser-
vation projects at the headwaters of the St. Johns River. The
310-mile waterway begins in wetlands west of Fellsmere.

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH Local
McDonald's restaurant
owner Joe Conrado,
teamed-up with Indian

On Dec. 1, construction

New Web

site tells

how to

conserve

water
FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
The South Florida Water
Management District has
launched a comprehensive
Web site that provides resi-
dents, businesses, utilities,
local governments and edu-
cators with a one-stop shop
for information about water
conservation.
"There's a great need for
practical and up-to-date
information on water con-
servation," said Carol
Wehle, executive director of
the South Florida Water
Management District.
"With no end in sight to
the current water shortage,
the new Web site is a vital
communications tool for
encouraging everyone to
incorporate water conser-
vation practices into their
homes and businesses-
and to do so for the long
term."
The Web site's home page
features current water
restrictions, landscaping
information and water-sav-
ing tips.
The site developed as this
year's drought and water
shortage focused growing
attention on water conser-
vation and identified the
need to further improve
public awareness of meas-
ures needed to protect
water resources. Water
restrictions alone have been
prompting more than
150,000 monthly web hits to
existing water shortage-
related district Web pages
this year.

"While in the process of selling our home and
buying another, we visited an open house and
met an agent from Michael Thorpe Real Estate,
who then became our agent. Within live days of
listing our home, we received five solid offers
and sold our home for our asking price. Within
two months, we moved into our new home, sold
to us by the same Thorpe agent. The entire sell-
ing and buying process was handled seamlessly,
as she took care of every facet of coordination.
What could have been a

Keep litter out of the canals


at do an automo-
bile, household
V furniture, plastic
bags, and dead animals have
in common?
All of these items have been
found in Indian River Coun-
ty's canals. This is extremely
unsanitary (and disgusting)
considering that the canals
transport untreated water
directly to the Indian River
Lagoon.
For some people it may be
easier to dump trash in the
canals, especially if the landfill
happens to be closed on the
one day we take our trash
there, but this trash comes
back to haunt us even though
we think it is gone.
You may be surprised one
day to find that plastic cups,
bags, bottles, lawn clippings,
and cigarette filters have
replaced the fish in your
favorite fishing hole.
Along with being an eye-
sore, the trash may bq affect-
ing your fishing success.
Trash that finds its way into
water bodies blocks the sun-
light for bottom-dwelling
plants and animals and
makes the area so undesirable
that fish and other aquatic
wildlife may leave to find
greener pastures elsewhere.
For example, seagrass com-
munities in the Indian River
Lagoon need sunlight for
photosynthesis. As the sea-
grass die from not receiving
enough sunlight, fish and
aquatic organisms that live in
and eat them move away
because the area is no longer

desirable.
That cannot only mean a
long day of poor fishing for
you, but it also affects anyone
else that is trying to enjoy the
beauty of the lagoon.
Not only does the trash that
flows through our canals dis-
place aquatic wildlife, it may
be a choking hazard for them
as well. Hungry sea turtles can
mistake plastic bags for food.
Once this item has been
eaten, the sea turtle does not
have a good chance for sur-
vival because its digestive sys-
tem can't breakdown the bag.
Seabirds, fish, and marine
mammals can become entan-
gled in plastic soda rings, dis-
carded fishing line, and drift-
ing nets making it difficult for
them to escape.
Large pieces of trash aren't
the only thing that can impact
our waterways and wildlife.
Small pieces, such as ciga-
rette filters, also cause harm
when they get washed away


off our roads, driveways, and
yards by the storm water
runoff into our canals and
lagoon. Cigarette filters are
the most common type of
pollution, and more than 175
million pounds of them get
tossed each year in the United
States. Cigarette filters are
made from plastic cellulose
acetate and take many years
to decompose.
When the filters reach the
water, aquatic animals mis-
take them for food. Plastic
pieces from cigarette filters
have been found in stomachs
of fish, birds, and other
marine creatures. Cigarette
filters also
negatively impact the water
quality because the chemicals
present in the filters leach out
into the water. These chemi-
cals can be deadly to micro-
scopic organisms that provide
food for juvenile fish. So, what
some people may consider a
tiny piece of trash can cause a
big impact in our lagoon.
Aquatic wildlife are not the
only things that are harmed
by litter in the canals. People
may be directly affected by it
as well. We can be injured by
stepping on broken glass,
cans, and other debris as we
walk along the beaches and
lagoon's shoreline. Swimmers
may become entangled in
abandoned nets and fishing
line. Intake valves on boat
engines can become clogged
with litter and niay result in
expensive repairs.
Large pieces of trash may
damage water control struc-


tures present in the canals.
Finally, a reduction in tourism
revenues may occur as more
litter builds up in the canals
and lagoon making the area
visually unappealing.
In order to prevent the nega-
tive effects of canal littering,
we can simply dispose of our
trash properly.
This increases the aesthetic
quality of the landscape,
decreases health and safety
threats to wildlife and people,
and saves the community
money in maintenance costs.
If you would like to do more to
help prevent trash from
reaching the Indian River
Lagoon, here are a few other
suggestions.
*Report illegal dumping in
the canals to the local police
department. If possible, pro-
vide a description and license
tag number.
*Place used fishing line in
monofilament recycling con-
tainers located at docks and
marinas.
*Reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Some area recycling centers
may pay for certain items.
Some local grocery and dis-
count stores have bins desig-
nated for plastic bag recy-
cling.
Cut the rings of plastic six-
pack holders. This lowers the
risk of entanglement to
marine animals if the holders
do make it out to sea.
*Participate in local beach,
river, or stream clean ups.
*Practice good housekeep-

Royal Caribbean has revitalized


Majesty of the Seas ship


X es, indeed, she's been
revitalized, refur-
bished, redone all over
and it certainly shows.
As soon as we boarded the
ship on Deck 4, we noticed a
much brighter, newer look
to the atrium area. The
elevator, up to theWindjam-
mer Caf6 on Deck 11, had
new paneling and brighter
lighting. The caf6, now
called the Windjammer
Marketplace, features Asian,
Latin, Mediterranean and
American menus.
Chatting with a floor
supervisor, we learned that
the extreme makeover had
taken 28 days by a couple of
thousand workers, mostly
from Europe, working at the
Grand Bahama Shipyard in
Freeport, at a cost of $40
million. We thought that was
impressive when you think
of how long if takes and how
much it costs to build a new
ship from scratch.

The bow-to-stern
makeover involved cabins,
suites, the Windjammer
(buffet) area, both main
dining rooms, spa and
fitness center, youth area,
conference rooms, pool
deck, theater and casino.
Some specific additions
and changes:
Compass Deli, which
features a sandwich bar,
soups, made-to-order
salads, crepes, pannini and
energy drinks.
Johnny Rockets, a 1950s
diner with jive singing and
dancing servers. Here the
traditional hamburger,
milkshake, French fries and
onion rings reign supreme.
Sorrento's pizzeria,
which serves various
delectable pizza all day and
well into the night.
Cafe Latte-tudes, which
serves Seattle's best coffee
drinks.
Freeze, an ice cream
parlor that dispenses
favorite flavors.
The two renamed main


dining rooms sport new
upholstery, plush carpets,
wall decor and window
draperies.
In all, we found that the
food was excellent, and the
presentation and service
were well beyond expecta-
tions.
The expanded Day Spa
and Shipshape Fitness
Center, relocated a deck
lower, featured 10 new
treatment rooms, a relax-
ation area, beauty salon,
manicure and pedicure
stations, and a teeth whiten-
ing room.
There were new stationary
bikes and a new aerobics
floor in the fitness center.
The new theater produc-
tion show features the music
of Stevie Wonder, Ray
Charles, Tina Turner and
others. The dancers, singers
and live musicians provided
a high-energy, thoroughly
enjoyable performance.
The Schooner piano bar
area is upgraded with new
upholstery on the chairs,
carpeting and window
treatments. This was our
favorite pre-dinner cocktail
spot. The service was great
as were the drinks.
The Boleros Latin Bar and
dance floor, with its live
Latin band, was packed
after the show, with rhyth-
mic dancers doing the salsa,
meringue, pachanga,
cumbia, etc. Latin specialty
drinks such as the mojito,
caipirinha and others flow
freely.


All guest cabins and suites
were refurbished. The hall
carpeting looked bright and
fresh.
The enhanced fleet-wide
bedding program continued
on the Majesty with new
mattress frames, 9-inch
thick spring mattresses,
pillows, sheets and com-
forters. All of this makes for
a terrific nights' sleep. This
improvement alone was
worth the price of the
cruise.
Other improvements
included: wall-mounted,
flat-screen TVs, a new
conference center with
comfortable seating and
audiovisual facilities, Wi-Fi
access in staterooms,
upgrades in the casino area
and more.
The refurbished Majesty
of the Seas sails out of
Miami on three- and four-
night cruises to Nassau,
CocoCay (Royal Caribbean's
private island), and Key
West and would be a great
experience for anyone
wanting a short cruise. We
would especially recom-
mend this ship for first-time
cruisers because they'd
certainly be impressed
enough to want to become
repeat cruisers.

Amaryllis, impatiens add color to winter


One of the most
sought-after novelty
plant items is the
amaryllis bulb. These
colorful plants are very easy
to grow and bloom with
very little effort.
They can be grown inside
or out and are a staple at
most retailers during the
holiday season.
These colorful plants
originated in South Ameri-
ca's tropical climate. The
botanical name for it is
hippeastrum.
Because of the large,
colorful flowers that the
plants produce, this bulb is
in large demand worldwide
during the winter.
These gorgeous plants
come in a wide variety of
colors: red, white, pink,
salmon and orange. You can
also find many varieties that
have variegated flowers
with an array of colors in a
single bloom. These bulbs
will be available at many
retailers in the coming
weeks.
Amaryllis bulbs can be
purchased in bulk packages
as well as in kits where all
you have to do is unpack
the kit and water the soil.
If you choose to plant
your own, first place the
roots and the base of the
bulb in lukewarm water for
a couple of hours. If you get
your bulbs and you are not
ready to plant them right
away, store them in a cool
place, at about 40 to 50
degrees. The refrigerator is a
great place.
Amaryllis bulbs like to be
planted in a good quality
potting mix, such as Miracle
Gro. Plant the bulb up to the
neck area in the potting
mix. Be gentle with the
roots so you do not damage
them. Firmly pack the soil
around the bulb so it stays

securely in place.
The new bulbs will do
really well in a warm place
with bright light. The warm
temperatures really make
the bulb grow rapidly, and it
will bloom in no time.
Water your new plant
quite sparingly when it is
first sprouting and gradually
increase the amount of
water the plant receives as it
grows. The blooms can last
for several weeks, and if you
plant the bulbs at two- or
three-week intervals, you
can ensure lots of color for
many weeks to come.
Amaryllis bulbs can be
trained to re-flower by
simply cutting off the spent
blooms. When you notice
the stem starting to wilt, cut


it back at the base of the
bulb, and the flowering
process will start again.
Impatiens add
color to yards
When you walk into
almost any lawn and garden
center, impatiens will most
likely be the dominant
plant. You will find them in
all colors and sizes from a
small 4-inch pot all the way
up to 14-inch (or larger)
color bowls.
Many stores also carry
six-packs and 24-packs. As a
rule of thumb, if you are
going to plant a garden with
impatiens, plant lots of -
them. You will be well
rewarded with a garden to
be proud of.
During the holiday
season, impatiens can be
found in red and white
color varieties. They can
add real holiday flair to any
garden or holiday display.
Impatiens will do best if
planted in an area that does
not get full sun all day. If
you plan on putting in
impatiens just for the
winter, this won't be quite as
critical, as the plants will
endure more sun during the
winter than the spring and
summer.

good quality potting soil,
such as Miracle Gro, and
plant them in an area that
has good drainage. If water
stands too long or the soil
stays mucky, impatiens will
develop root rot. They do,
however, need to be kept
evenly moist. If you let an
impatiens plant dry out too
much, the plant will wilt.
Even though the plant will
appear to recover when you
revive it with water, damage
has been done. Repeated
bouts of drying out will
compromise the plant
quality dramatically over
time.
If you have a sprinkler
system, do not rely on it 100
percent for your flowers.
Always supplement your
watering regime with hand
watering.

Aries-March 21-April 19
With the planet Uranus finally going
direct after being in retrograde for the
past six months, you will begin to feel
less struggle. Life will begin to make
more sense. When any of the planets
pull away from the earth (retrograde) it
robs the natural flow of positive energy,
and we feel it as stress and burnout.


Schlitt Coldwell Banker real
estate salesman, has actually
worn many hats and led
many lives that included
working with some of the
biggest names in the
entertainment world.
He is a true impresario in
the tradition of legendary
Sol Hurok who doesn't like
naysayers and who refutes
those who say something
can't be done. And in


February, he is getting ready
to stage another in a long list
of entertainment extrava-
ganzas with a weekend-
long, premier equestrian
event to be held in western
Vero Beach.
Mr. Studley, 69, grew up in
a working-class home in
Chatham, Mass., a fishing
community located on the
"elbow" of Cape Cod. His

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Be careful of your spending during the
holidays. Personal time spent with
loved ones is just as important as the
things you buy them. Spend a little
more time with the old ones you love
who are getting up in years. This will
stay in your heart as legacy in your
memory for years to come. It all comes
back to us multiplied. This is the true
meaning of the holidays.

it and things work out in their own nat-
ural time and order. Frustration is
caused by letting fear and impatience
rule you. Back off when you begin to
get uptight. Relax and enjoy. Everything
is in divine order.
Cancer-June 22-July 22
A bright attitude brings good cheer to
every occasion. You are the family per-
son. Pay a little more attention to those
around you who need extra support
right now. In giving, we receive back
tenfold. You are the master at this.
When you see the need and fill it,
things just seem to have a magical way
of working out. This is one of your
greatest rewards. Thanks for being

take action on a plan well con-

because of the advance atten-

edge from proper planning.
Now watch out. Exciting things

Scorpio-Oct.23-Nov.21
The moon and Venus in Scor-
pio, along with your great sen-

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Last week was great. This
week is outstanding. The sun,
Mercury, Jupiter and Pluto are
all in your sign. What was just
predicted for Scorpio applies
even more for you. You are on
a natural high wave of energy
that only happens once or
twice a decade. This wave of
energy makes you seem like a
wizard to your friends because
you make success seem so
effortless. If they only knew.
Capricom-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Your strong belief in honesty
and doing things right is the
main factor working in the
quality life you are creating.
Dare to be different. When you
get that right feeling, nothing
can slow you down or stop
you. You are a proven winner.
Why? Because you finish what
you start. You have a deep
reservoir of talent, creativity
and passion. Why can't we all


be so blessed?
Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
This has been a good year. The
new one coming will be even
greater. Now is the time to
enjoy your victories, but begin
to plan,for the year ahead. Set
priorities on the most impor-
tant passions and dreams.
Write them down and affirm
them out loud every day. Ask
the universal power to show
you the signs that they are
blessed and growing. Be
thankful and much more will
soon be on the way.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
The universal presence within
you constantly inspires you to
do your best. This is your high-
est form of motivation. When
you wake up each day with
love in your heart and joy in
your spirit, you are more
blessed than 90 percent of all
others in the world. Now give
thanks and take these rich
blessings to others less fortu-
nate. Shire them and become
a bridge of hope. You can do
it.

charge for it," Mr. Studley
recalled.
But the enterprising young
man further refined his
promotional skills by
working in conjunction with
his next-door neighbor who
had a similarly large yard.
"I decided that we would
fill up his yard first at $2 per
car and then fill up my yard
at $5 per car," Mr. Studley
said with a laugh.
The plan worked and a
career in promotions was
launched.
A bout of polio struck when
Mr. Studley was 16, and he
was forced into isolation and


subsequently dropped out of
school to work and help pay
off the medical bills that had
accrued.
At age 17, he joined the Air
Force and, according to the
former veteran, "stayed in for
five years, six months and 23
days" all the while stationed
in Texas. During his stint, he
completed his high school
studies.
"Even though I've had a
lack of formal academics, I
still prevailed. But I suppose
it would have been easier
with a formal education," Mr.
Studley said.
Once discharged from the
Air Force, he worked as an
advertising salesman for the
Dallas Times Herald. Later,
the paper bought out an area
weekly newspaper and Mr.
Studley sold ads for both.
"I found it difficult to sell in
a very competitive market, so
I came up with a combo
package between the
newspapers and the local
radio stations, and it was a
gigantic success," he said;
The marketing ploy led to a
job offer from a country and
western radio station in
Grand Prairie, Texas, that
heavily promoted the music
ofWillie Nelson.
"I got to meet him, and we
became friends. Then my
promotion efforts took a
turn, and I started gravitating
to the artist side of the music
.industry," Mr. Studley said.
One of the first artists he
promoted was-Bruce
Channel from FortWorth,
Texas, who made the charts
with a hit named "Hey, Baby,"
("I want to know, if you'll be
my girl.")
The "British Invasion" of
musical talent had begun in
the United States, and an
entirely new market was
waiting to be tapped.
Mr. Studley was ready.
His next promotion was for
The New Vaudeville Band,
which released "Winchester
Cathedral," reminiscent of
1930s star RudyVallee
singing into a megaphone.

The band originally
composed of session
musicians found its one-
hit song skyrocket to No. 1
on the Billboard Hot 100
Chart in the United States
and make the British Top.
Five chart in the United
Kingdom. The one-hit band
also won a Grammy for the
song.
Mr. Studley found that he
had an uncommon ability to
get station program directors
to play the songs he was
promoting.
"The job of a promoter is to
take an unknown artist and
get them to the top as quickly
as possible, Mr. Studley said.
"And I was getting things
played. I'd talk to the pro-'
gram directors and find out
what they were in to, and
most wanted to hang out
with the artists."
"So I'd get them backstage
passes and other things," Mr.
Studley said.
From there he "got hooked
up with the record labels"
and was instrumental in
assisting them with setting
up their own distribution of
the records.
"The labels sign the artists,
go into the studio and spend
all this money producing an'
album. The promoter's job is
to get them played on the
radio, and the only way you
succeed is through your
personal relationships with
whom you're dealing and
keeping your integrity and
character," Mr. Studley said.
He admitted that back in
the old days, some promot-
ers and record labels collud-
ed to get air play in what
subsequently became a huge
"payola" scandal in which
radio stations and disc
jockeys were paid to unfairly
promote songs.
For 24 years, Mr. Studley
was in charge of special
projects and promotions for
Polygram Records, Casablan-
ca Records and Filmworks,
Polydor Records, Mercury
Records and RSO Records.
He personally worked with


and promoted artists
including John and Joey
Travolta, Cher, the Village
People, John "Cougar"
Mellencamp, KISS, the Bee
Gees, Eric Clapton, Kool and
the Gang, Larry Gatlin, Gloria
Gaynor, Donna Summers,
Reba McIntyre and other
internationally renowned
stars.
He laughingly recalled an
evening when he had to
briAig his young son along
with him to see Cher when
he couldn't get a babysitter.
No problem with the black-
haired diva, apparently,
because she carried the
youngster who was misiden-
tified by others as being
Cher's own son Elijah Blue
Allman, son ofAllman
Brothers frontman Greg
Allman.
"I worked with Cher for
four years as her promoter in
the Southeast," Mr. Studley
said.
At the time, he was based
out of Atlanta.
Mr. Studley's home office
walls are covered with some
of the 37 gold records and
nine platinum records he
promoted as well as special
recognition for having
promoted six No. 1 records
with the Bee Gees in succes-
sion.
"I was good," Mr. Studley
said with a smile and hearty
chuckle.
Perhaps his biggest
involvement in entertain-
ment came with his promo-
tion of the 1977 movie
release/sound track "Satur-
day Night Fever."
"I received 17 gold records
off that album," Mr. Studley
said.
Despite the film and
soundtrack's monster
successes, both were initially
panned by critics.
"Saturday Night Fever" was
picked to be a big flop during
the pre-screening by critics.
And the soundtrack (by the
Bee Gees) was never nomi-

nated for an Academy
Award," Mr. Studley said.
Both the film and album
went on to achieve iconic
status that has endured for 30
years.
Mr. Studley had an oppor-
tunity to again work with Mr.
Travolta following the release
of the filmhn version of
"Grease."
"That one was also picked
to be a flop, and we held the
initial world premiere in
Hammond, La., so that if it
did flop, no one would know,"
said Mr. Studley with the
beginning of a grin that
broadened momentarily.
"Grease" was no flop!
"But at that time, we didn't
know, so we gave away tickets
to the premiere so we'd have
a sell-out crowd for both
showings. We had Rydell
High School shirts made and
gave those away. And then we
went to Atlanta for another
premiere," he said.
Mr. Studley hit the road in
the South to promote the
movie and soundtrack, which
featured Mr. Travolta and. co-
star Olivia Newton John.
"I drove to Tennessee to
start working the radio
stations with the song that
went, "you're the one that I
love, the one I live and die for
- hoo-hoo-hoo, honey," said
Mr. Studley who cracked up
with laughter imitating the
well-known refrain.
His show productions
include co-producing "The
Platters 25th Anniversary
Show" for the HBO cable


network; co-producing Isaac
Hayes "Black Music Count-
down Radio," which was
syndicated to 118 radio
stations; acting as executive
producer of the Isaac Hayes
movie "Tiburon;" promoting
Franco Zeffirelli's production
of "Swan Lake" with the La
Scala Ballet; promoting and
producing Tammy Wynette's
"Christmas Special;" and
produced and/or promoted
productions of Charlie
Daniels, George Jones and
Ricky Skaggs as well as the
National Italian Opera
Company's production of
"Othello."
Since coming to Indian
River County, Mr. Studley
became involved in commer-
cial real estate but never lost
his love of promoting
entertainment. He previously
owned one-third of the Mesa
Park venue in Fellsmere
where some of the previously
mentioned shows were
staged.
His most recent project,
produced through Mr.
Studley's Aim High Produc-
tions, will be an exquisitely
staged and performed
international equestrian
event from Feb. 2-3. Depend-
ing upon the final number of
sponsor hospitality tents, the
extravaganza will be held
either at the Pointe West
community or adjacent Polo
Grounds community in
westernVero Beach.
"This will be an event with
the art of dressage, the beauty
of show jumping and the
competitiveness of that sport
of royalty, polo," Mr. Studley
said.
He believes thatVero Beach
is the perfect venue for such

an event in terms of time,
place and amenities.
"There has been a lot of
negative or discouraging
publicity here lately regard-
ing Piper, the Dodgers and
other things, and some
people have a bad taste in
their mouth aboutVero
Beach," he said.
"Somebody has to highlight
and showcase what it is that
we have to offer in this
wonderful community of
ours, and the Polo Grounds
and Pointe West are perfect
venues to frame an event of
this stature," he added.
Among those involved with
the upcoming event is Ite
O'Higgins-Young, a former ,
Irish championship rider
who since childhood rode
competitively in three-day
events as well as show
jumping and dressage.
"There are a lot of people
and businesses that are very
excited about this event and
want to seeVero Beach
become a regular stop on the
horse show circuits. But there
are also those who say we
can't do it. The key to success
is not listening to those
people," he said knowingly.
For more information about
the equestrian event, call Mr.
Studley at (772) 532-4462.

Jazz artists Rick Braun,
Peter White and Mindi
Abair combine their talents
for their annual perform-
ance of Holiday music at
the Lyric Theatre Thursday,
Dec. 13.













Mitch Kloorfain
.. ; chief photographer

Mindi Abair makes a

joyful noise for a Peter

White Christmas


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Saxophonist Mindi Abair
loves performing Christmas
music with guitarist Peter
White and trumpeter Rick
Braun so much that coming
together for the holidays
has become a regular gig.
Mr. White, the ringleader,
has assembled the group
again, and they will bring "A
Peter White Christmas" to
the Lyric Theatre on Dec.
13.
In a recent phone inter-
view, Mindi Abair spoke
about what she loves about
Christmas and, about her
own busy career.


A Florida native, who
played back up for the
Backstreet Boys, Mandy
Moore, John Tesh and Adam
Sandier, Ms. Abair hasn't
spent a lot of time in her
home state lately.
"I've been on the road
with my band," she said.
"It's great to go out and play
in front of people. In the
meantime, I've also been
recording a Christmas CD
with Peter and Rick. We
started in July, during a
point in L.A. when it was lit-
erally over 100 degrees
every day. We were all tour-
ing (separately), and we'd
try to rendezvous. That was
fun. I've also been in the


studio working on my
newest CD, coming out in
April, 2008."
"I've been writing songs,
coming up with what I feel
is the right sound," said Ms.
Abair, "I've written about 30'
songs, but it's not about
writing 10 songs, it's about
writing 10 songs I really like,
that match, and are not car-
bon copies but have a com-
mon thread. You have to get
in and delve into the mind
and soul."
The self-described "Christ-
mas geek" says that the group
counts coming to the Lyric
each year as a high point.

"An Evening with Judy


Collins" tickets are now on sale
for a special concert set at the
Riverside Theatre for Saturday,
April 8, 2008, as a fundraiser for
the Mental Health Association in
Indian River County, Inc.
The gala concert will follow
Turtletrax 2008: Opening Doors
Changin Lives, which will be
launched on Feb. 23 with the
third annual 5K Turtle Trek
Community Walk and TurtleTrax
Community Festival & Art
Exhibit
Judy Collins has thrilled
audiences worldwide for more
than 40 years with her unique
blend of folksongs and contem-
porary themes. The music of
artist such as Woody Guthrie
and Pete Seeger, as well as
traditional songs of the folk
revival, sparked Judy Collins'
love of lyrics and the guitar.
Ms. Collins is noted for her
rendition of Joni Mitchell's "both
Sides Now" which is in the
Grammy Hall of Fame and for
"Send in the Clowns," the 1975
Grammy Awards winning song.
She herself has been immor-
talized by Crosby, Stills & Nash


Abair
From page B6


"We absolutely love it
there,", she said. "I love Stu-
art. I walk around town and
love the little shops. I stop
at the chocolate shops and
the gift stores. We all love it
there."
"We've crafted this show
over four or five years," said
Ms. Abair. "Each year we
add, although we keep it
mostly the same. It's a
Christmas show, and it's
fun to do it every year. Peo-
ple have made it part of
their Christmas. We're like
Christmas carolers in every
city; we just take longer bus
rides in between. People
bring us cookies and
brownies, and I think we've
hit the jackpot here."
Ms. Abair came out of the
prestigious Berklee College
of Music wanting to be a
solo artist and spent a lot of
time playing backup for
other performers. Getting
a taste of a variety of styles


has helped shape who she
is as an artist.
"You take the things you
learned delving into other
music and find what's you
and what's not you," she
said. "Finding yourself
takes so much time. But
that's what makes you an
artist."
Just in case she gets car-
ried away with success, she
remembers the lesson
Adam Sandler taught her.
"I learned not to take
myself too seriously," she
said.
"'A Peter White Christ-
mas," featuring Rick Braun

Steve Solomon finds fun in family


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Steve Solomon was a high
school physics teacher and
school administrator when
he decided to shift gears and
become a comedian.
He debuted his one-man
show, "My Mother's Italian,
My Father's Jewish, and I'm
in Therapy" at the Lyric The-
atre and performed it again
last year just prior to taking
the show to New York.
On Dec. 21, he brings the
show to the Sunrise Theatre
for the first time. He spoke
recently by phone about the
busy year he's had.
"It's been astounding," he
said. "It was supposed to be
a 12-week run in New York,


and we just celebrated one
year. I left the show in May,
and actor Paul Kreppel is
doing a wonderful job. I do
31 different characters and
the sound effects, and I
trained him and yelled at
him and he learned it beau-
tifully."
For those who are not
familiar with Mr. Solomon's
theories of relativity, his
show is about relationships.
"It's about everyone in the
world whose sole purpose
was to drive me into thera-
py," he said. "It's about fam-
ily, the police, airport secu-
rity, doctors, best friends,
and neighbors. Everybody
walks out identifying with

someone. They'll tell me, 'I
have an aunt, I have an
uncle ...' I impersonate 'My
Sister, the Smoker,' so well
that my family thinks it's
her. I was nervous when she
came to see the show and
I'm doing her coughing and
wheezing that she'd be
insulted, but she said, 'At
least you made me
famous.'"
The road to New York
began when comedian Pat
Cooper told Mr. Solomon to
take his act to Florida.
"I did well, but I wasn't
making money," he said. "I
was just another comic. I
knew I needed a show and
came up with the title. My
agent brought it to the
William Morris agency, and
they loved the idea and
booked $150,000 -in ticket
sales with only a title. My
agent sent me to work on' a
cruise ship for ten months.
I'd do two stand-up perfornf-
ances a night; then you're
stuck on the middle of the
sea, and I wrote the show. We
tried it out at the Lyric, and
John Loesser said it would
work in New York. We were


Taylor and Tammy Wicker.
Plans include rotating
exhibitions, guest artists,
classroom instruction,
themed shows, special
events, and participation in
the revitalization of the
downtown area as a destina-
tion for the arts.
The gallery will be open
Monday through Friday 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Satur-
days from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
For information, call (772)
562-5525 or visit

very scared. We had to raise
millions and put everyone's
money at risk. I never would
have believed that the show
would last this long. The
tourists love it. It's very Mid-
dle America."
Leaving the show in capa-
ble hands gave Mr. Solomon
the chance to debut a new
show, "My Sister's an Only
Child: the Chaos Continues,"
which he performed at the
Kravis Center and Atlantic
City in his return to stand-up.
He's also training other per-
formers for touring compa-
nies of "My Mother's Italian
"It's a wonderful mix," he
said. "Sometimes I have
three 90-minute shows in my
head at one time. I can forget
which show I'm in."
Steve Solomon brings his
one-man show, "My Mother's
Italian, My Father's Jewish,
and I'm in Therapy," to the
Sunrise Theatre, 117 S. Sec-
ond St., Fort Pierce on Dec.
21. Tickets are $35 and $30;

to share how I handled the
"I wants" that go on and on
with children at Christmas. I
explained to them that
many children throughout
the world didn't have
anything. So, moms and
dads who could sent Santa
money for the toys their
children wanted. Then
Santa could give presents to
the poor children who had
nothing. Now you can
negotiate, choices can be
made and there will be no
disappointments, since they
know how much money you
can afford to send Santa.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
Common sense tells us
that Santa doesn't have time
to set tp a tree and he
certainly doesn't have time
to wrap gifts, especially in
the same paper your
children saw you buy.
Being Italian, we celebrate
Christmas Eve and Christ-
mas day. How else can we
become martyrs?
Gifts are exchanged on
Christmas Eve, both with
family members and the
children. Presents to be
exchanged are wrapped and
placed under the tree.
Since Santa hasn't come
yet, nobody knows what he
will bring.
Try my way. It worked for
us through four kids and
they believed a lot longer
than most. By the way, (God
forgive me) when my kids
said their friend's parents
told them (the facts) I told
my kids they (the parents)

confessed my sin, let's get to
the recipes.
Today we'll cover two
delicious cookie recipes.
You can mix up most of the
batters now and freeze
them. Then, when baking
time is here, you'll see how
easy will your life be. Be
aware that when I recom-
mend Smart Balance butter
substitute, which works
great in place of butter or
margarine. I am not talking
about the "light" version; it
is too soft and will not work.
Also, remember to preheat
the oven for 20 minutes.

Keep your tree fresh, Santa


alive and cookies flavorful


2 cups plus 2 tablespoons
unsifted, bleached all-
purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons each: salt
and baking soda
1-1/2 sticks unsalted
butter, (no substitutes),
melted and cooled until
warm (very important)
1 cup brown sugar (1/2
light and 1/2 dark), firmly
packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, plus 1 yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans
or walnuts
Heat oven to 325 degrees.
Adjust oven racks to upper
and lower middle positions.
Mix flour, salt and baking
soda together in a medium
bowl, set aside. Using an
electric mixer, mix cooled
butter and sugars until
thoroughly blended. Mix in
egg, yolk and vanilla. Add
dry ingredients, mix until
just combined. Stir in chips
and nuts. Chill dough about
1/2 hour.
Shape teaspoon-size
pieces of dough into a ball
and place on a cookie sheet
about 2 inches apart. Do not
flatten.
Bake, swapping cookie
sheets halfway through
baking until cookies are
light golden brown and
outer edges start to harden.
Centers should still be soft
and puffy, 15 to 18 minutes,
(start checking at 12
minutes).
Dough can be refrigerated
for two days and frozen for
two months.

KIM'S OATMEAL
COOKIES
When my daughter was in
school, she came home with
this recipe and it has been a
favorite ever since.
1 cup sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon each: baking
soda, salt and cinnamon
1 egg
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
(packed)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or
substitute, melted and
cooled
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup raisins
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
Sift together flour, baking
soda, salt and cinnamon;
set aside.
Beat egg together with
sugars and vanilla. Add
melted butter and mix
thoroughly.
Gradually add flour
mixture, mix well. Add oats:
blend. Add raisins and nuts.
Treat cookie sheets with
cooking spray. Drop batter
by teaspoonfuls onto sheets
and bake for about 10
minutes in a 350-degree
oven.

dance or we push it away.
Feeling poor but proud
doesn't cut it anymore.
Third is to make a friend
of the divine power
instead of living in awe or
fear of it. A personal
relationship with spirit
starts with gratitude, but
grows when we begin to
ask for inner guidance and
begin to trust and develop
faith in it.
In order to do this, we
have to surrender the ego
and lower will and ask for
the higher power to give us
spiritual guidance. Making
this transition is where
most of us have the


hardest time. Our minds
want to control every-
thing. Living by the lower
nature is what causes war,
divorce, crime, sickness,
poverty and depression.
The fourth step is to
write down your visions
and inspirations when
they come. The messages
coming from the universe
are our greatest source of
truth. Writing them down
is the same as grounding a
seed in a garden.
Fifth, speak the desire
out loud. Send it back to
your new friend. Thank

Girls


teams


hope for


winning


seasons

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
For several years, Sebast-
ian River has been the
straw that stirred the drink
when it came to Indian
River County girls basket-
ball.
Now, Vero Beach has
added its swizzle stick into
the mix.
After two seasons that
saw Vero Beach go 10-17
and 11-16, the Indians are
poised to make a run at the
district title. After a 60-26
dismantling of Treasure
Coast on Nov. 28, Vero
Beach is an impressive 5-1
and appears headed in the
right direction after strug-
gling through it share of
growing pains.
"We always set our
expectations high," head
coach Rahshard Morgan
said. "I think we are where I
expected us to be.
"We're more mature. The
girls are working hard and
it's showing."
As well is the Sebastian
River squad. The Sharks are
off to its usual hot start,
coming in with a 6-1 record
after a 64-25 win over Trea-
sure Coast. Led by Terri
Amy, Sebastian River has
dominated over the past
two seasons.
In 2005-06, the Sharks
started off slow, going 3-2
in its first five games.
Sebastian River then pro-
ceeded to win its next 20
games. Included in that
streak was an impressive
run through the District 13-
5A tournament.
The Sharks handled Port
St. Lucie 58-30 to move
within one win of its first-
ever district crown. Taking
on Bayside, a team that had
defeated the .Sharks earlier
in the season, Sebastian
came away with a 47-34
win.
The team then went on to
defeat Boynton Beach in
the Region 4-5A quarterfi-
nal before falling to Naples-
Barron Collier in the semi-
'final.
Last season, despite los-
ing standout Melissa Mar-
tinelli to graduation, the
Sharks didn't skip a beat.
Led by Katie Carr and Brit-
ney Johnson, Sebastian
rumbled to its second con-
secutive district crown.
The Sharks made it look
easy, winning both the
semifinal and champi-
onship match by almost
identical scores. A 64-35
win over Bayside was fol-
lowed up by a 65-39 victory
over Satellite a game in
which Sebastian held the
Scorpions scoreless for
almost the entire first quar-
ter.
Ironically enough, the
team's 26-3 season was
topped off the same way as
the preceding year a win
over Boynton Beach in the
Region 4-5A quarterfinal,
followed by a dismal loss to
Barron Collier.

girls needed someone to

appropriate model and options. In some locations hearing evaluations are always free. They may not be complete medical
exams and are only Intended to assist with amplification selection.

Ar The Cliub


f you watched The Golf
Channel recently, you
probably caught the final
stage of the PGA Tour
qualifying school.
Watching the pros play
fantastic courses in the best
of conditions usually makes
every golfer quite envious.
Most PGA Tour events are
played on exclusive, private
courses and most are not
available to recreational
golfers.
This is not the case with
Orange County National
Golf Center and Lodge in
Winter Park, just west of
Disney World and host of
this past weekend's PGA
Tour qualifying school. If
you're considering taking a
short weekend trip before
Christmas, this may be just
the place.
With two championship
18-hole tracks, a nine-hole
short course, a lodge, full-
service clubhouse and a'
huge practice facility, all
secluded well away from the
mayhem that is central
Florida, Orange County
National is quite the golfer's
heaven.
I have found that the best
time to play a golf course is
right after it hosts a tourna-
ment. The fairways are
usually hard and fast, the
greens roll faster and truer
and the rough is a little
tougher. Most of us have
talked about measuring our
game against the best in the
business. Now you have the
chance to play the same


track in nearly the same
condition as the pros. From
now until Christmas is a
great time to visit Orange
County National.
While most of us are
heading to the most expen-
sive time of the year to play
golf, OCN has found the
weeks between the holidays
to be a bit slow and thus
specials are readily avail-
able. With a lodge onsite,
and a full-service club-
house, a two-day retreat
would make for a great early
gift or even a way to reward
yourself.
The holiday overnighter
special includes one night
of lodging, two rounds of
golf on either of both of the
award winning courses at
OCN, hot breakfast each
day, range balls, compli-
mentary greens fees on the
9-hole short course, club
storage and a souvenir bag
tag. The package price for
double occupancy is $148
plus tax and is good for
lodging Sunday through
Wednesday beginning Dec.
14.
Combining this trip with
your spouse's need for
shopping is a great idea. You
can play golf all day while
he or she spends the time
wearing out the numbers on
the credit cards. Perhaps
with the money you save on
golf, that special someone
can afford to get you an
even better present.
Golfers may enjoy
Panther Lake and Crooked


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


Cat. Both are award-wining
tracks completely devoid of
homes and outside devel9p-
ment. Built on the rolling
hills of central Florida, each
course features five sets of
tees, including the same
ones used for the Q-school
finals.
Crooked Cat may be
played anywhere-from 5,112
to 7,493 yards. With water
on only three holes,
Crooked Cat feels less like a
Florida course and more
like one you'd find in the
Carolinas. Trees and waste
areas guard the fairways
and the greens are well
protected by a plethora of
bunkers.
The 12th hole on Crocked
Cat is one of my favorites.
This par-4 can play as long
, as 461 yards with a huge
wetland coming into play
on both the tee shot and
approach.,
Panther Lake plays

could step into other roles."

"They're all challenging
each other at practice. The
starters are not guaranteed
a starting spot and the non-
starters are not guaranteed
that they won't start."
In the win over Satellite,
two of the players Amy is
looking to carry the load
this season both had. solid
games. Brittney Williams
led all scorers with 24
points while Jade Cargill
had a double-double with
14 points and 14 rebounds,
as well as chipping in five
steals.
"We did really well," Amy
said. "But there is still stuff
we need to work on."


A night later, inVero's win
over Treasure Coast, Emily
Sullivan led a balanced
attack with 13 points and
17 rebounds. Carrie Orcutt
chipped in 11 points and
five steals as well, as the
Indians rebounded from its
only loss of the season -- a
46-43 setback to Mel-
bourne.
"We didn't play well that
night," Morgan said. "We're

over the summer," Morgan
said. "It showed that if you
can put good time in, you
can get great things out."
Vero's first big test of the
young season was against
Palm Bay, the team that
ousted the Indians from
the district playoffs the last
two seasons. Vero passed
with flying colors, winning
54-44 to continue its mete-
oric rise.
"I'm really optimistic
about this season," Morgan
said. "I'm more happy for
the girls with all the time
they put in."

coming into play on all but
four holes. This track also
features more elevation
change than you'd expect in
a Florida course.
If you like a true three-shot
par 5, the 14th at Panther
Lake fits the bill. Coming in at
624 yards from the tips, you
are challenged to cut the
corner with your drive for any
chance at getting home in
two. The 15th is the best par-3
on the property.
To hone your game, there is
a 42-acre circular driving
range on site. This allows you
to practice you game with the
wind coming from any
direction. It also allows you to
be as close or far way from
everyone else as you desire.

choose from at OCN. The
