Ann Romney, wife of .
Republican presidential
candidate Mitt Romney,
spoke about family and
the campaign trail at a
luncheon at Quail Valley
River Club Monday,
D ec. 10. '

Faith, family are bedrock



for Romney, wife says,


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH As her
husband, Mitt Romney,
seeks the Republican
presidential nomination,
Ann Romney knows what
kind of first lady she
wants to be.
For Mrs. Romney, 58,
one former first lady car-
ries special significance:
Abigail Adams, who
forged a partnership with
her husband, John
Adams, the second presi-
dent.
"I believe Mitt and I
have a very similar part-
nership," Mrs. Romney
said Monday during a
campaign stop here. She
called her husband of 38
years "the most qualified,
the smartest and the best
looking" among the crop
of presidential con-
tenders.
That partnership has


afforded her a large role
in the Romney (ninmpaign,.
complete with solo trips
to early voting states and
her own campaign Web
site, which includes
recipes, family photos
and details about her
battle with multiple scle-
rosis.
Four days before her
Vero Beach visit,. Mrs.
Romney joined her hus-
band in Texas when he
sought to assuage fears
about their Mormon
faith.
"We're tolerant of the
symphony of faiths," she
said, echoing her hus-
band's speech. "We're not
only going to elect a pres-
ident if he's of a certain
faith. That's the absolute
opposite of what our
country was founded
on."
The speech, reminis-
cent of one then-candi-
date John E Kennedy


Shoppers dream of

green Christmas

as holiday nears


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH This
Christmas, aiming for a
holly, jolly green holiday is
red-hot.
Energy-saving lights fill
store shelves and hang
from evergreen branches.
Homegrown groups hawk
organic products. And
shoppers talk about their
efforts to buy gifts that are
sustainable, or at least
local.
Can Christmas be merry
and eco-friendly all at
once?
Nancy Wood thinks so.
Last week, the Indian
River Green Team invited
holiday shoppers to a
bazaar packed with green
and organic products. Ms.
Wood, the Green Team
president, said she wanted
to boost environmental


awareness and local busi-
nesses with the Vero Beach
Community Center event.
Her green shopping list
includes live oak saplings.
Over the years, she's hand-
ed out more than 500 trees
as gifts most of which
were welcomed.
"I wouldn't give a green
gift to somebody who
wouldn't appreciate it,"
Ms. Wood said. For stock-
ing stuffers this year, she
plans to give bottles that
resemble plastic but are
made from a corn deriva-
tive. Each bottle contains a
filter to remove chlorine
and other chemicals.
Last Christmas, Kelly
Brown, a grant manager
for the local Habitat for
Humanity affiliate,
received a pair of planet-
friendly Earth Shoes.

gave in 1960 about his
Catholicism, will contin-
ue to resonate, Mrs. Rom-
ney said.
"No matter what hap-
pens to Mitt, I think that
speech was significant,
and what he said was so
significant," she said.
Her fundraising stop at
Quail Valley River Club
was a chance for Mrs.
Romney to talk up her
husband as a successful
venture capitalist and
governor.
"Mitt has had so many
situations in his life
where he's been able to
turn around failing com-
panies and really under-
stand the economics of
what makes something
work," she said.
Mostly, though, Mrs.
Romney talked about her
husband as a father and
grandfather, who, once
Sunday dinner has been
cleared, shoos his wife


from the kitchen so he
and his five grown sons
can do the dishes.
"He lives for the fami-
ly," Mrs. Romney said,
"That is his source of joy."
In 1998, around the
time her husband was
tasked with overhauling
the 2002 Winter Olympics
in Salt Lake City, Utah,
she was diagnosed with
multiple sclerosis, an
incurable neurological
disorder.
"I thought my life was
over," she recalled.
Depressed, frightened
.and worried about being
confined to a wheelchair,
Mrs.'Romney rebuilt her
strength with a combina-
tion of medications and
horseback .riding.
Though it had been years
since she climbed into a
saddle, she wanted to
make the most of her

Talks to

replace

Dodgers

approved

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH New
tenants could move into
Dodgertown as early as
2009, if negotiations
authorized by the County
Commission last week
prove successful.
Joe Baird, the county
administrator and lead
negotiator, offered few
details after commission-
ers approved closed-door
talks with a Major League
Baseball team to succeed
the Los Angeles Dodgers.
"If we don't start negoti-
ating with a team now, we
could find ourselves not
having a team," Mr. Baird
said before the Dec. 4
vote,
Following the 2008 sea-
son, the Dodgers are set to
move to a new spring-
training facility in Glen-
dale, Ariz. A year ago, the
team announced its pend-
ing move to the Phoenix
suburb from Vero Beach,
where the Dodgers have
trained for six decades.
County taxpayers will
not pay for incentives to
attract a new team, Mr.
Baird said. But upgrades
at the decades-old
Dodgertown facilities may
be necessary.
"Down the road, there
may be some improve-
ments needed on that
property, and it may be a
question of who pays for
it," he said. "And that's
what will be negotiated."
Guy Barber of Vero
Beach criticized Mr. Baird
for conducting confiden-
tial negotiations, and said
the county must avoid
offering the team financial
perks for relocating to
Dodgertown.
"We've got Vero Beach,
we've got beautiful weath-
er, we've got beautiful
people, we've got a field,"
Mr. Barber said. "Play."

Dodgers
From page Al


Though speculation has
surrounded several base-
ball ,teams, Mr. Baird has
remained mum about the
identities of potential ten-
ants since July, when he
announced that he was
conducting "significant
negotiations" with an
unidentified team.
State public records


laws, which require most
government documents to
remain accessible to citi-
zens, include an exemp-
tion for economic devel-
opment activities. The law
allows such documents to
remain sealed for one year.
,Under the resolution
passed last week, Mr. Baird
will negotiate an agree-
ment to bring the team to
Dodgertown once the
Dodgers leave. But the
county could also muscle
the Dodgers out, by
declaring the team in
breach of its lease, which
lasts until 2021.
Construction on the
Glendale stadium began


last month, but it is
unclear if the new facility
will be ready by 2009.
Indian River County and
Vero Beach jointly own the
Dodgertown complex,
with the county claiming a
nearly 90 percent stake
and the city the rest.
Local governments
bought the 64-acre facility
six years ago for about $20
million. As part of the deal,
officials pledged $7 million
for upgrades and $2 mil-
lion for repairs.
"It's probably the best
real estate investment
we've ever made," Mr.
Baird said last week.

Last December, three days before taking my family off on a
once-in-a-lifetime bill-fishing trip to Costa Rica as a
Christmas present, I kept an appointment with my primary
care physician to renew my prescriptions. 1 had been on
every heartburn/acid reflux medication over the last two
years but my reflux was worse than ever. I told my doctor
I felt like something was seriously wrong.
And as it turned out, it was. Two minutes into a stress test,
my doctor sent me directly to the hospital for a cardiac

catheterization. I had four blocked arteries-and urgently
needed open-heart surgery with Dr. Cary Stowe.
I was impressed with the whole crew-from the ER, to
cardiac cath, to surgery, intensive care, the step-down unit
and cardiac rehab. They always explained what they were
doing and what to expect. Competent, dedicated and
professional, the Heart Team did more than fix my
heart-they gave me a fresh attitude about life.
The 'big fish' may have gotten away this time. But the
Heart Team gave me the best Christmas gift ever-a second
chance to enjoy my family and all that life offers.

Wary of tax reform, officials make requests


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Cuts mandated by state
property tax reform were
less than local officials
expected, but proposed
reforms facing voters next
month could mean further
cutbacks.
When lawmakers met
with county and municipal
officials at Vero Beach City
Hall last week, county
administrator Joe Baird
asked 'for local governments
to have greater input in
future tax reform legislation.
A decline in state sales tax
revenue will also affect
county finances,. Mr. Baird
told legislators at the Dec. 5
meeting.
Proposed reforms could
mean deeper cuts.
Voters will cast ballots on
a proposed constitutional
amendment Jan. 29. If
passed, the amendment
would double the home-


stead exemption to $50,000,
cap assessments on rental
properties and second
homes, and add "portabili-
ty," which would allow
homeowners take benefits
from the existing 3 percent
assessment cap on primary
homes when they move.
But local officials are wor-
ried because most revenue
streams in from property
taxes. That money is then
used for schools and servic-
es such as public safety.
Against this belt-tighten-
ing backdrop, officials
pitched funding requests to
the Indian River County leg-
islative delegation.
Indian River County,
which contains the headwa-
ters of the St. Johns River,
wants representation on the
St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District Governing
Board, which sets policy and
enacts wide-ranging deci-
sions along the 310-mile
waterway.
In the midst of a statewide


drought, officials are wor-
ried that fast-growing areas
in the water district are
receiving an unfair share of
the water supply.
"We see other areas taking
up our water," Mr. Baird
said.
He also requested funding
for flood-prevention efforts
in the low-lying Rockridge
neighborhood south of Vero
Beach, and money for a re-
nourishment project at
Wabasso Beach.
Al Minner, the Sebastian
city manager, said the city
would seek money for.
stormwater and transporta-
tion issues, particularly the
effort to alleviate congestion
on County Road 512.
But he said concerns exist
about the impact of the pro-
posed property tax amend-
ment.
If passed, the average esti-
mated savings per home-
owner would be $240 per
year.
Floridians for Property


Tax Reform, a statewide
group, supports the amend-
ment,. Business groups,
including the Florida
Chamber of Commerce and
the Florida Association of
Realtors, are backing the
measure as well.
Florida TaxWatch, a fiscal
watchdog group, said the
proposed plan "really
amounts to tax cuts not
true tax reform."
And the Florida League of
Cities, which lobbies for
more than 400 municipali-
ties statewide, opposes to
the measure.
Vero Beach Mayor Tom
White, who fielded resi-
dents' questions about city
spending at a town hall
meeting later that day,
believes the amendment
will pass.
In the meantime, the city
took measures to prepare
for cuts, he said.
"Everybody can tighten
their belts a little bit," Mr.
White said.

County joins call
for Indian River Lagoon cash
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY-To preserve land along the
Indian River Lagoon and its watershed, the County Com-
mission passed a resolution asking the state to acquire
more than 20,000 acres of land near the waterway.
With its unanimous vote Dec. 4, the commission
offered its support for the state Indian River Lagoon
Blueway program, which aims to preserve sensitive
lands in the. six counties that border the 156-mile estu-
ary.
According to a state inventory released last month,
only 16 percent of the lands eyed for preservation have
been purchased, leaving 22,640 acres left to acquire.
Since the effort was launched in 1998, the state, counties
and water management districts have bought 3,766
acres for $19.8 million.
State estimates show the cost of the remaining parcels
totaling more than $58 million.
Commissioners asked the state to give the project the
highest ranking on its acquisition list, meaning that the
land would be purchased entirely with state money.
Members of the state Acquisition and Restoration
Council are set to meet Dec. 14 and rank the projects.
The lagoon, which faces threats from agricultural
and residential pollution, as well as development
along its shore, is home to threatened species such as
the manatee.

Fellsmere, Vero receive seats
on regional council
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Although Sebastian
Mayor Andrea Coy asked for her city to have a seat on
a regional planning board, the County Commission
allotted the posts to Fellsmere and Vero Beach.
But commissioners also said the seats on the Trea-
sure Coast Regional Planning Council would now
rotate between the municipalities each year.
At their Dec. 4 meeting, commissioners appointed
Vero Beach Vice Mayor Sabin Abell and Fellsmere
Councilwoman Susan Adams to the 28-member
panel.
Commissioner Wesley Davis called the appoint-
ments "a way to be as fair as possible" to the munici-
palities.
In July, when commissioners gave the appointments
initial approval, the intent was to balance the interests
of a large and small municipality, as well as the north-
ern and southern portions of the county. Commis-
sioners Peter O'Bryan and Gary Wheeler also serve on
the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council.
Though Sebastian Vice Mayor Sal Neglia was
appointed as an alternate member, Ms. Coy said her
city, which is the largest in the county, should be rep-
resented. Sebastian has about 18,000 residents.
Ms. Coy acknowledged a need to have fast-growing
Fellsmere represented.
"Fellsmere has an up-and-coming need for plan-
ning purposes," she said.
The planning board, which draws its members from
elected and appointed officials in four counties, is set
up for leaders to discuss growth-related issues that
could affect the entire region. On economic develop-
ment and growth matters, the council serves as a
think tank.
It was established in 1976 through an inter-local
agreement between Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin,
and Palm Beach counties. Council membership
includes all four counties and 49 municipalities..

Candidate relies on record in campaign


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Ann Reuter, who
announced that she's seek-
ing re-election to the
School Board, said last
week that she wants to
continue her record of fru-
gal spending during a sec-
ond term.
"I enjoy watching the
money," she said. "I want
to make sure that every
dollar gets stretched to the
limit."
Mrs. Reuter, 61, also said
she was proud of the effort
this year to hire a new
schools superintendent. in.
July, the district hired
Harry La Cava after a
mqnths-long search.
"I feel as if I'm accom-
plishing a lot," Mrs. Reuter
said.


As a former teacher, she
wants to examine other
ways to measure student
achievement, not just the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
Mrs. Reuter, who once
taught kindergarten at
Fellsmere Elementary
School, said she could
relate to teachers in district
classrooms.
"I know what it's like to
be in the classroom and
have that pressure on you,"
she said.
New land-buying proce-
dures. which Mrs. Reuter
called for earlier this year,
will foster competition
among sellers who want to
sell land to the school dis-
trict, she said. ....
[In August, the board
voted against buying two
parcels of north county)
land for $3.35 million after


district staff members
learned that a title for
some of the land was
involved in a lawsuit.
The new purchasing pol-
icy is transparent, Mrs.
Reuter said.
So far, Mrs. Reuter has
one opponent for the Dis-
trict 4 seat.
A year ago, the Rev. Kyle
Gibson of Vero Beach filed
paperwork for the post. Mr.
Gibson, 37, is the pastor of
Gifford's New Bethel AME
Church.
When he launched his
campaign in March, Mr.
Gibson called for increased
salaries for all Indian River
County Schools employ-
ees, lengthening the school
.year and boosting racial
and gender diversity
throughout the district's
ranks.
Voters will cast ballots


Ann Reuter


for two School Board seats
next year.
Chip Landers, a Vero
Beach Realtor, and Vero
Beach accountant Matt
McCain have filed paper-
work for the District 2 seat.
Lenora Quimby has held
the seat since 2004. She has
not announced whether
she will seek re-election.

From page A3

School Board selects new officers
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY At the annual School Board
organizational meeting, Chairwoman Carol Johnson and
Vice Chairwoman Karen Disney-Brombach switched roles.
For the next year, Mrs. Disney-Brombach will lead the
five-member board, and Mrs. Johnson will serve as vice
chairwoman. f
Though the chairperson largely has the same responsibil-
ities as the other board members, he or she is tasked with
running School Board meetings.
During her yearlong tenure, which ended Nov. 20, Mrs.
Johnson led.the board through a. nationwide search for a
new superintendent. In August, the board hired Harry La
Cava from the Broward County School District to succeed
interim Superintendent Duncan N.P. "Pat" Pritchett.

Ball field to be named after community leader
VERO BEACH --To honor a lifetime, of activism and serv-
ice, the softball field at'Gifford Community Park will be
named for a community leader.
At its Dec. 4 meeting, the County Commission voted
unanimously to name the field for J. Ralph Lundy, founder
of Our Father's Table soup kitchen and a former president of
the Gifford Progressive Civic League.

What's going on with Piper?

As I was having my coffee and reading my morning
paper, I see that Piper has come up with a new twist to the
"corporate welfare" or "ransom," if you will.
Don't be fooled, Piper's puppet strings are being pulled
by American General. They want the money now so they
can invest it or buy more companies and not wait for the
money to dribble in.
The value of the dollar in eight years will be less than it is
right now, so they want it up front. Besides, Piper may not
be in business in eight years. There are many aircraft plants
building planes, and Piper is stuck with 1960s technology
on its airframes.
It seems that the Dodgers, Piper and American General
are pulling the wool over the official's eyes, again. It's all
about how much money they can stick us for while folding
their tents and stealing away into the night.
I keep wondering what is this large sum of money going
to be used for, and which company is going to benefit.

Maintain the land in Indian River County

Is there anyone in Indian River County government who
can explain why the fire access lane directly behind the
homes on Third Street Southwest, between 20th and 27th
Avenues, is not maintained?
The tall dead trees from the last hurricanes are still there
and the overgrown tree limbs in some cases are right next
to, or on top of the electrical and phone lines. This will
cause needless overpriced extra labor and electric distress


for the neighborhood and neighborhoods south, if this un-
maintained mess is not dealt with.
Also, why have some of the residents on the Third Street
Southwest side been allowed to get away with actually bull-
dozing down/flat, doing away with the floodwall all togeth-
er, to extend their backyards?
This not only puts Third Street Southwest residents in
jeopardy, but Fourth Street Southwest residents in peril as
well, during the next big one.
The fire access lane on the Fourth Street Southwest side
is meticulously manicured. Is this because we're still new,
yet or the tax base of the gated community warrants such
attention while the Third Street Southwest side doesn't?
What one forgets is that with large amounts of water hav-
ing no place to go, both sides of the canal will be in peril,


whether the land is maintained or not.

Send in more rants

My rant is that the Rants & Raves section is almost gone.
Are people not writing in, or have you cut way back on
the space given to the column?
I really looked forward to this section of your paper. Can't
we vent our opinion anymore, or are we just bottled up
until we explode?
Come on, people, express yourselves. Hopefully the
Hometown News hasn't cut back on the allotted space.
The paper is less interesting to me as a result. Hopefully,

Coping with grief during holidays requires three C's


T he holidays can be
especially difficult for
people who have lost
loved ones.
Any time that celebrates
family can be hard, as those
who remain are often keenly
aware of the family member
who isn't there anymore.
Watching other families
together, people who are still
grieving often are reminded
of their loss and even people
who have moved past the.
stage of immediate grief may
feel sad during holiday times.
Jacki Nardone, director of
the Harbors Community
Grief Support Center at
Treasure Coast Hospice,
counsels clients who are
dealing with grief at holiday-
time to think of the three
"C's:" choose, communicate
and compromise.
"People should make a
conscious choice prior to the
holidays about which
activities they will participate


in and which they won't," she
said. "They should decide if
they want to maintain
traditions or start something
new.
"They should plan for how
they want to mark their loss
-and not avoid it. They should
think about how they want to
honor that person. Perhaps it
will be by telling stories,
lighting candles, having a new
ritual or special ornament or
having a moment of silence.
There are many ways to
remember someone and
bring a positive focus to grief.
"It's also important for
people to communicate their
choices to others," she said.
"That's especially true with
families. Each person's way of
handling grief is different. If
you want to talk about the
loved one, let people know.
They may not realize that that
is what you want to do.
"Compromise is important
at this time, as well," she said.


"If a holiday dinner is too
painful for a family member,
but others want to have it,
make sure each point of view
is taken into account. If
someone doesn't want to
decorate the tree, but others
do, let them. If someone can't
attend at all, ask, 'I under-
stand you can't be there, but
what can we do to help you
and make you a part of the
holiday?'You want to decide
how you can honor your
loved one as a family."
Dealing with grief at
holiday time is complicated
when there are children
involved.
"Kids do need routine and
stability," said Ms. Nardone.
,"Perhaps someone else can
step in and assist a bit. Maybe
an aunt can help and take
some of the burden off mom
or dad.
"Again, it's important to
realize limitations and
communicate what you can


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
and cannot do. Then bring
someone in to help and try to
be with people who are
supportive and comforting."
While grieving is a difficult
process, Ms. Nardone
believes it can bring families
together.
"Talk to yodr children
about changes in life, about
life's normal struggles," she
said. "We change schools; we


move ... because grandpa
died, grandma can't do
Christmas dinner this year,
but we'll do it at Aunt Sally's
... these are life lessons about
transition and change.
"It's also important to
remember that kids need to
grieve and that everyone does
it differently. Everyone must
honor each person's way of
grieving, and of the feelings of
sadness, loneliness, frustra-
tion and anger. However, if
the person becomes self-
destructive or becomes
depressed, it is time to seek
professional help. That's a
sign of strength, not weak-
ness."
The Harbors Center
provides individual and
support groups for adults and
children throughout the year.
to help people cope with
grief. The Harbors serves the
people of Stuart, Port St.
Lucie, Fort Pierce and
Okeechobee. The support


groups are free and open to "
anyone who has suffered loss
from any type of death,
including accidents and
suicide.
During the holiday season,
additional "Coping with the
Holidays" workshops are held
and the public can find out
about them by calling (772)
403-4530 or (800) 299-4677.
There is no way to short-
circuit the grieving process
and no right way to grieve.
Talking to people who have
experienced loss is often a
good way to make sense of
your own feelings, and to
understand that what you are
feeling is entirely normal.
You don't have to grieve
alone, or in silence. There is
help out there.

Some people get frustrated with'free' downloads


T en I write about
Free software and
V provide a link, 99.9
percent of the time the page
you get will tell you what
you are about to download.
I am amazed when I
receive four, five or even six
e-mails in a row all asking
questions that are answered
on the download page itself.
Some will ask why I didn't
mention some obscure fact
about a particular piece of
software. I admit, I can't
cover everything. Each
week, I have a limited
amount of space. Therefore,
when I tell people about a
download I think people
may find helpful, my
primary goals are to tell
what it is, why someone
would want it and how to
get it. Perhaps it's a little
naive of me to assume
everyone is going to actually
read the information on the


Web page before download-
ing. As I can see from my e-
mails, many do not.
I have also noticed that
many people seem to think
that I am somehow associ-
ated with the software that I
write about. It's almost as if
people think I write the
software for it or get some
compensation for writing
about it.
When I find software on
the Internet that I think
people may find helpful, I
download it, install it and
then put it through its
paces. If it's something I feel
is well-written, free of
viruses, spyware or other
gotchas, then I write a
column about it. Basically, I
just tell people I found
something that works for
me..
As far as support goes,
that has to be handled by
the authors of the software.


I can answer basic ques-
tions, but to ask me why the
software was written one
way and not another, well,
for questions like that I have
rio idea. You've got to check
the Web site to see if those
answers are there.
One more issue I need to
address is the concept of
"free." When a software
provider provides a free
version of their software
along with a version that
you have to pay for, you
must decide whether to get
the free version. That
typically means "no live
support" if y6u have issues.
This concept (while very
reasonable to me) seems to
annoy some people to no
end.
I'll use AVG as an exam-
ple. Here is a company that
provides a free version of
their software for regular
home users and they also


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

provide a commercial
version that costs money.
When you go to their Web
site and look around, you
can see a comparison chart
as to what's available in the
free version vs. what's
available in the paid
version.
Now let's say you are


running the free version and
you get a message that it's
found a virus that it cannot
automatically fix. If you
attempt to go back and get
them to help you, they are
going to want you to pay for
their help because you are
using the free version.
This should come as no
surprise as it's clearly
mentioned on their Web
site, but it sure' does catch
people off guard.
Grisoft offers a free
program that updates itself
without any need for a
subscription and helps
uninfected machines stay
that way. If you have not
been running an up-to-date
anti-virus program and
decide to download the free
addition, don't be surprised
if, once you install it, you
find that your machine is
infected. That's not the anti-
virus program's fault; that's


just lack of maintenance.
If the program comes up
and detects a virus it can't
clean and you don't know
how to clean it yourself,
then you are likely going to
have to pay someone to fix it
for you.
If you download a free
virus scanner and put it on a
machine that has been on
the Internet for months with
no protection and it discov-
ers a virus, you can't expect
anyone to come bail you out
for free.
I hope that answers some
of the e-mails I've gotten!
lately. If I haven't gotten to
your e-mail yet, please be;
patient with me; my inbox is
a bit swamped right now.,!

Local governments force run on fund pool

Board restructures fund to restore investor, confidence


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
St. Lucie County School
District assistant superin-
tendent Tim Bargeron want-
ed to do the right thing for the
state, but opted instead to do
right by the taxpayers of St.
Lucie County.
Mr. Bargeron, who over-
sees the school budget,
began to hear rumblings that
the state-run Local Govern-
ment Investment Pool, in
which he had been investing,
might be in danger of default.
Bargeron said he'd been
concerned about. the invest-
ment pool since a Nov. 13
conference call with the State
Board of Administration,
during which he discovered
that some of the fund's secu-
rities had been downgraded.


He said he wanted to be a
"good Floridian" and not
contribute to a run on the
fund, so he only pulled out
$12 million, a fraction of the
school board's investment.
Two weeks later, however,
Bloomberg Financial News
Service reported that the
securities had defaulted and
were not simply downgrad-
ed, as he said he'd been told.
On Nov. 28, he pulled out $52
million more.
'"At that point, I decided
that being a good Floridian
was one thing, but I needed
to be responsible," Mr. Barg-
eron explained. "I had mixed
feelings, but I didn't want to
leave any school district
funds at risk."
The state's governmental
entities have traditionally
preferred the Local Govern-
ment Investment Pool


because it provided liquidity
and earned more interest
than treasury bills.
That's now changed for Mr.
Bargeron who says he has no
plans to transfer any money
back into the fund.
"We're diversifying in some
other ways," he said. "We're
transferring SBA funds into a
treasury-backed investment
account. We're also looking at
purchasing treasury bonds
directly."
The SBA was forced to
freeze the Local Govern-
ment Investment Pool on
Nov. 29 because of a run on
the funds that quickly
dropped its value from $27
billion to $15 billion.
While some local entities
such as the St. Lucie County
School Board and the city of
Stuart did manage to with-
draw most of their funds


beforehand, many, such as
Martin and St. Lucie coun-
ties, did not and temporarily
lost access to most of their
operating capital.
The investment pool
remained closed until Dec. 6,
when it reopened with
numerous restrictions under
the guidance of financial
asset manager BlackRock.
The new restrictions limit
investors to withdrawing 15
percent of their current total
balance, or $2 million,
whichever is greater. Any new
money invested in the pool
can be completely with-
drawn without penalty, how-
ever.

ment Pool for 25 years as a

Before that, her mother
gave her pocketbook made
from recycled tires.
Ms. Brown gives green
gifts, too. For her sister, a
teacher, she bought a
cleaning kit filled with
environmentally sound
products.
"I try to buy environ-
mentally friendly things,"
Ms. Brown said, as she
manned the Schacht
Groves table at the holiday
bazaar.
Her husband, Louis
Schacht, grows organic
Indian River Citrus, using
chicken manure instead of
chemical fertilizer, shun-
ning pesticides and steer-
ing clear of color-enhanc-
ing gases and waxes.
Though the company
also grows citrus with con-
ventional methods, "we try
to be sustainable," Ms.
Brown said.
Elizabeth Stegenga, the
membership and market-
ing director for the Cultur-
al Council of Indian River


County, resolved to buy
locally produced products
this Christmas.
So she picked up a few
biodegradable pieces of
gear for her mother and
sisters: reusable Vero Bags
that can be used to tote
groceries.
For Ms. Stegenga, this
was her first attempt at
green gift giving.
"If I did before, it was by
accident," she joked.
Holiday decorations are
also undergoing an envi-
ronmental upgrade.
LED lights, or light-emit-
ting diodes, are an energy-
saving alternative to the
incandescent bulbs of old.
At The Home Depot on
State Road 60, the lights
have proven to be a popu-
lar item, said Jimmy York,
the inside garden depart-
ment manager there.
"People are getting
much more high-tech,"
Mr. York said. "Next year,
all we're going to be hear-
ing about is LED."

Relating to traffic laws rants
I love Hometown News because it gives people an outlet
to voice their opinions.
When I read "Follow all traffic laws" I could completely
relate. There really needs to be a driver's school course that
makes you drive around with a DMV staff member for at
least a couple hours maybe on the weekend and maybe
even charge a fee for it; not just driving around in the park-
ing lot for a few minutes and then handing over a license.
Continually, I have people who don't use their turn signals,
cut people off, talking on their cell phones, crossing over
three lanes in front of traffic to get over to that turning lane,
riding in passing lanes, and even trying to speed up so that
you can't pass.
When I spoke with an officer as to why people aren't ever
pulled over for these things all he could say is that 95 per-
cent of his tickets were for speeding. If this is one thing
people are getting penalized for why aren't the other law-
breakers getting penalized as well?

More on traffic rules
Kudos to whoever wrote "Follow all traffic rules." I could-
n't have said it better myself. The part that sums it up best
is "driving is about courtesy and being predictable." The
sad part is the author of "Obey the speed limit" wouldn't
know a common courtesy to his fellow man if it bit him in
the face.

From page A5
Freddie Woolfork, who asked commissioners to consider the
new name, told a story about the time Mr. Lundy served as his
Little League coach.
"I wasn't a good hitter, but Mr. Lundy found something for
me to do," Mr. Woolfork said. Once, with bases loaded and Mr.
Woolfork up to bat, Mr. Lundy told him not to hit the ball, but
instead to let the ball hit him. He did, and walked onto first
base.
Mr. Lundy has "always given of himself," said Joe Idlette III,
president 6f the Gifford Progressive Civic League.
For Black History Month in February, the commission recog-
nized Mr. Lundy and 11 others and pioneers in the community.

City Council votes for new
environmental policy

VERO BEACH For some local governments, it's easy being
green.
Two months after the County Commission agreed to new
environmental standards, the City Council voted 5-0 to imple-
ment the rules, too.
With no debate, the council moved ahead Dec. 4 with certifi-
cation as a green government from the Florida Green Building
Coalition. Accreditation costs will total $4,500.
For local governments that encourage residents to conserve
energy and water, reduce landfill waste and enact other meas-
ures, the coalition awards points toward certification.
Two weeks ago, the Sebastian City Council voted down a
similar green proposal, citing its cost.

Fund
From page A7
secure place to store money
until needed for operating
expenses and payroll budgets.
The recent problem started in
late October, when many of
the investors began to hear
rumors about $2 billion in
assets downgraded due to
problems in the sub-prime
mortgage market. After some
of the largest investors began
pulling out, it quickly caused a
domino effect, which led to
the run.
St. Lucie County was more
severely affected by the fund's
problems, s it had $142 mil-
lion in the investment pool on
Nov. 29. St. Lucie County Clerk
of circuit Court Ed Fry said he
wvs disillusioned with the
stte's oversight and that the
find's reputation had been
sullied.
"The most disheartening
thing about this is that it was a
rock solid investment for over
25 years," he said. "It's always
been considered a very safe
and very liquid investment."
The county has no financial
woes, he added, since he was
able to withdraw $18 million
after the fund reopened, but
he's now determined to better
diversify St. Lucie County's
investments.
"With the exception of
about $38 million, I instituted
a plan to slowly but surely


acquire treasury notes, about
$68 million," he explained.
The city of Stuart was
another municipality that
pulled its money out ahead of
the freeze. The city's director
of financial services, Dottie
Zaharako, said negative
reports on the Bloomberg and
the lack of answers from the
SBA led city officials to take
quick action to safeguard the
$26 million it had invested.
"We pulled our money out
the Wednesday before (Nov.
18)," she said. "There were
some question about the
problems, and we called them
and didn't get a response. We
decided it would be less risky
if we just moved the money
until we got some answers."
She said the fund's favor-
able rate of return and same
day liquidity made it attrac-
tive to local governments but
the city wouldn't invest in it
again right away.
"We can't really determine
right now... we'll just have to
wait and see how things shake
out," she added.
Martin County administra-
tor Taryn Kryzda explained
that a timely coincidence kept
the county from suffering
hardships when officials dis-
covered about $120 million
was suddenly out of their
reach.
"We got a $14 million ad
valorem payment from the tax
collector on Nov. 29, so we
had cash available to keep us
liquid and make payroll," she


said.
Even so, most Martin Coun-
ty commissioners expressed
outrage at what they viewed
as the lack of the state's over-
sight. Although the state helps
manage the fund, it does not
provide guarantees against
losses.
"I think we ought to send a
letter to the governor and
whoever actually manages
these funds to express our dis-
illusion that anyone would
possibly put these in any kind
of high-risk investment,"
Commissioner Lee Weber-
man said. "That's not what
these funds are supposed to
be about.".
Commissioner Michael
DiTerlizzi said the county
should have received warn-
ings from the state about the
problem and hinted that liti-
gation might be a possibility.
"This is a seriously large
amount of money, and there
is a fiduciary responsibility to
the taxpayers to safeguard this
money," he said. "We all
thought the state was doing a
good job safeguarding the
money.
A spokeswoman for the
School District of Martin
County, Cathleen Brennan,
said the district did not pull
any money out of the fund
before Nov. 29 but said offi-
cials were closely monitoring
its investments.
"Our daily operations are
not being affected by the
restrictions on the pool," she


said. "The state is working on
the issues of the SBA, and
we're going to give them time
to address those issues."
Martin County Clerk of Cir-
cuit Court Marsha Ewing said
that the county's investments
in the fund were the lowest in
recent history but she feels
that the SBAs corrective
measures will eventually
restore'confidence in it.
"For 25 years it's been the
safest and most liquid way in
which to earn a good rate of
return," she said. "I believe
the solution they've come up
with, and the action that the
trustees have taken, is doable
and will be successful."
She explained that the
county has hired First South-
west Asset Management to
help guide its future invest-
ment strategies. Although
Martin County will probably
invest again in the pool
because new investments
aren't restricted, officials are
also looking to diversify into
two different U.S. govern-
ment funds as well, she
added.
Florida is not the only
state that has encountered
problems withy state-run
investment pools as a result
of homeowners defaulting
on sub-prime mortgages.
The states of Maine and
Montana have also been
forced to restructure the
money-market-type funds
due to problems with
defaulted securities.

but sectioned trays filled with
delectable foods. No lettuce
is used.
Genoa salami, provolone
cheese, roasted red peppers,
pickled mushrooms, pickled
eggplant, marinated arti-
choke hearts, caponata
(eggplant spread), sardines,
anchovies, capers, black and
green olives create a magnifi-
cent display. You can add
tomato wedges, tuna, hard-
boiled eggs and any other
appetizer food that will fit in.
Each appetizer is pre-
pared separately. The salami
must be sliced paper-thin
and rolled pencil-thin. The
provolone is not the slicing
kind found in supermarkets,
but a strong cheese found in
delis or meat markets. The
domestic is a little milder
than the imported; cut it into
wedges.
Each is placed in its own
section for individual
selection. Crusty Italian or
French bread completes the
feast.
Now I'd like to share with
you a very old and special
family tradition that my
grandfather, Luciano
Camerino, who was born in
Bari, Italy, brought to
America. A creche (a three-
dimensional model of the
nativity with a stable, Mary
and Joseph, a cradle for the


candles are extinguished and
all embrace and wish each
other a blessed Merry
Christmas.
Enjoy. See you next week.

Reader request: Yvonne is
asking for a recipe for sweet
potato soup. Can anyone
help?

Note: All the following
recipes can be made days in
advance, refrigerated and
served at room temperature.
ROASTED
RED PEPPERS
Sweet red bell peppers
come jarred, but roasting your
own is easy and the flavor is
wonderful. One medium-size
jar or two large or three
medium peppers is enough
for about 10 people when used
in an antipasto.

1 medium-size jar roasted
red peppers (not
pimentos) or 3 medium
red bell peppers
2 tablespoons extra virgin
olive oil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 cloves garlic, cut up
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
Salt and pepper
Drain jarred peppers and
tear into large segments. To

TRAVEL


Know what, how to pack


when preparing for a cruise


The mysterious formula
for packing for a
cruise can make a
rocket scientist run off and
build a shack on a deserted
island.
Don't despair!
Here are some great tips
for packing for your seven-
night cruise without
needing a shipping contain-
er.
For gentlemen cruisers, a
dark suit, two good shirts, a
pair of slacks and dress
shoes can take you through
the seven nights without
repeating an outfit.
If you are sailing the
Caribbean, three pairs of
shorts and three shirts work
well with the mix-and-
match method. Also, don't
forget good walking shoes
and a bathing suit.
These items will get you
through the week. The only
other items of course would
be underwear and toiletries.
Be sure to pack medica-
tions and a change of
underwear in carry-on
luggage, as well as a shirt
and slacks. This is in the
event of lost luggage.
Passports and cruise
documents should be on
your person, not packed.
For women cruisers, bring
three skirts and/or slacks
with blouses or sweaters,
which can be mixed and
matched. Dresses are great,
but you only normally get
one night's wear out of a
dress. If you really need to
have that special dress, be
sure it is a dress that packs
well. Women normally like
to have shoes for every

A th the heart of our
Florida winter
coming into play,
cold snaps and possible
freezing temperatures will
be the rule for the next
several weeks.
Many of our plants will
withstand the cold temper-
atures with grace, while
others will struggle and wilt
at the first sign of a chill.
Since many of us do some
serious planting during the
cooler winter months, the
weather may pose some
serious challenges for our
precious plants.
One of the best ways to
offer protection to the root
base of plants is to use
mulching material. You can
recycle many of the prod-
ucts you already have
around your home. Use
bark from trees that you
might have cut down or
bark that has come loose
from pine trees.
Straw also can make an
excellent mulching materi-
al. If you live in a rural area,
straw may be available from
some local farmers.
Sawdust can also be used.
If you are a woodworker or
do a lot of remodeling, save
that sawdust you vacuum
up and recycle it in your
yard.


Also, all the above-named
materials will slowly
degrade in the soil and add
natural nutrients that will
be beneficial to the plants.
In order for the mulching
material to be effective in
the event of a low tempera-
ture or freeze scenario, the
material should be at least
2- to 3-inches thick, but
keep a margin of about 1
inch from the main part of
the plant trunk. There are
some exceptions, such as
citrus trees. You should
never mulch around citrus
plants as this can actually
cause harm to the tree.
It.is extremely important
that your garden be moist
prior to a cold snap. The
combination of dry soil and
cold temperatures can
cause serious damage to
tender plants.
If our area should come
under a freeze watch or
warning, take some extra
precautions to minimize the
damage to your plants.
Covering your plants will
be the next step you need to
take. Use cloth, not plastic,
when protecting your
plants. Plastic can act like a
greenhouse and when the
sun comes up, the drastic
temperature change can be
fatal to your plants. Even


when using cloth, be sure to
use stakes if possible, so
that the material does not
come in direct contact with
the plant..After the cold
weather or freeze event is
over, remove the covering
material promptly.
Fortunately, Florida
enjoys seasonal tempera-
tures throughout most of
the winter and mild freezes
do not happen all that
often.
It is important to remem-
ber that many of our
tropical plants can start to
have cold damage with
temperatures as high as 39
degrees. Hibiscus plants can
wilt and shiver at around 35
degrees, as well as many
flowering annuals.
The main thing is to be
ready if a cold snap or freeze
heads our way and you will
reap the rewards of healthy
plants throughout the
winter.

Peat moss also makes a

If you have oak trees or
live in a heavily wooded
area, you can use leaves as a
protective barrier around
the base of your plants. You
can even use your old grass
clippings.
By using the mentioned

VERO BEACH Jake
Owen is coming home.
Actually, the Vero Beach
native and popular coun-
try music star might better
be, remembered around
these parts as Josh Owen.
But call him Jake or call
him Josh one thing is for
sure he will unques-
tionably fill every seat at
Vero Beach High School's
Performing Arts Center
when he performs for a
hometown crowd on Tues-
day, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m.
This stop on his touring
schedule is bound to be
particularly special for the
star as well as the audi-
ence. Mr. Owen is a Vero
Beach High School gradu-
ate who is making a tri-
umphant return to his
alma mater.
"He has a lot of friends
and family here and this
concert will be sold out for
sure," said Crystal Corrig-

Week of 12-14-2007


Aries-March 21-April 19
Rise up from any earthly restrictions and
continue to transform yourself into the
free-spirited, beautiful soul that you truly
are. It's time to let go of any restrictive
bonds of the past, fully open the heart
and soar like an eagle to new and
greater heights. You have it in you. You
were born for greatness. Go for it and
continue to win.

Taurus-April 20-May 20 ,
Recognize each day that the universe is
your source. Give thanks and continue
to find ways to intensify your energy into
healthy thought forms and ideas that
reflect the use of your natural talents
and gifts. Then move your projects for-
ward one day at a time until you see
them becoming strong and fruitful. This
is the winning formula.


ter.
Although he has found
success in the music
industry, it was not his
original intention to
become a country per-
former. '
Mr. Owen was born 15
minutes after his fraternal
twin, Jarrod, and grew up
in Vero Beach playing a
wide range of sports.
By age .12, Mr. Owen
wanted to play profession-
al golf and join the tour
with Tiger Woods and
company.
Mr. Owen's Web site
notes, "I was determined
that golf was going to be
my life."
Although Mr. Owen and
his brother played other
sports as well, he was espe-
cially drawn to golf
because he got to spend a
lot of time with his father
who relished the game.
Apparently the younger
Owen had a natural knack
for the game and was good
enough to find himself

Jake Owen, a Vero Beach native and country music star,
will perform Dec. 18 at Vero Beach High School.


Gemini-May 21-June 21
The power to make wise choices comes
through the instincts, up through the
heart and pop into the mind. When you
feel unsure about what to do, wait. The
timing isn't quite right. If you jump the
gun and move on without this divine
inner guidance, you will have to go back
and try to fix things. Patience is a virtue.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You know you are making progress
when you feel encouragement coming
from close friends. The happiness in
your heart ripples out to theirs and then
comes back multiplied, to you. You
demonstrate the essence of uncondi-
tional love, which is giving without
expecting anything back. If we all could
only be more like you.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
When you are relaxed, centered and
focused, it is easy for you to take action
and turn inspired ideas into realities.
Very few others have this gift as strongly
as you. You have the tools and spirit. You
know how to use them. Now take actiop
and bring the best out of your heart and
soul. It's your destiny to do this.

Virgo-Aug.23-Sept.22
Don't fret over recent struggles. This is
just life's ebb and flow. The secret is to
go all out when the energy is flowing


and hold back a little when it is slowing.
This keeps your timing sharp and maxi-
mizes the use of your spirit without
wasting it. Let this formula work for you
and you will continue to excel.

Libra-Sept. 23-Aug.22
You always feel like there is so much to
do and so little time. The key is to figure
out the value of all these things and
focus on the most valuable ones first.
Then take care of the lesser things. Suc-
cess breeds success. When you are on a
natural high and psyched up in life you
are capable of great happenings. Go for
it.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your desire for a new and better life is
beginning to show positive results. You
are a great humanitarian. You want
everyone else to be happy as well. Your
path is one of respect, love, honor and
dignity. It justifies your life when you see
someone else get the message about
the true meaning of life. Teach us. We
are here to listen and learn.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your priorities remain clear. You contin-
ue to have a strong sense of the most
important areas of life that need to be
tended to. Where does all this insight
come from? From your open heart and

BY BARBARA ISENBERG
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH -Wracking
your brain for a unique and
appreciated holiday gift for
someone special or maybe
even yourself?
Well, ponder no more
because one stocking
stuffer that is sure to be
appreciated and used by
those age 21 and over is a
ticket to the Seventh Annual
Treasure Coast Wine
festival's Grand Wine
Tasting set for Sunday, Feb.
10, from 2 to 5 p.m.
The gala event culminat-
ing the weekend-long
festival, which commences


Friday, Feb. 8, will be held
under a huge tent on the
scenic grounds of The Vero
Beach Museum of Art,
located at 3001 Riverside
Park Drive inVero Beach.
More than 100 volunteers
will be on hand throughout
the weekend to assist
festivalgoers.
The popular wine extrav-
aganza represents collabo-
ration between two closely
affiliated organizations -
the Indian River Medical
Center Foundation and the
Visiting Nurse Association
and Hospice Foundation.
The dedicated board
members of these groups,
as well as friends of the
foundations who are
enthusiastic wine lovers,
joined efforts to create the
Treasure Coast Wine
Festival, which is set up for
charitable purposes.
This year, theVero Beach
Museum of Art has been
added as a third beneficiary
of the festival's proceeds.
Novice and expert wine
aficionados are invited to
attend and celebrate the


magnificent bounty of the
grape with an afternoon of
wine tasting, seminars and
demonstrations by some of
the nation's leading chefs
and wine experts.
More than 150 wines will
be on display and be
available for tasting and
purchase.
Kirsten Kennedy, Treasure
CoastWine Festival's special
events coordinator, noted
that the three-day event is
"committed to supporting
health care, social services
and educational programs
in Indian River County in
order to make a positive
difference in the lives of
families and children. Its
purpose is exclusively
charitable."
One of the festival's
beneficiaries is the Indian
River Medical Center, which
has provided 75 years of
health care to the area as a
355-bed, award-winning
nonprofit hospital. The
hospital boasts all private
rooms and a wide array of
health services and pro-
grams for its patients.


Indian River Medical
Center's new heart center is
affiliated with Duke Univer-
sity Health System. The
medical center also offers
comprehensive cancer
treatment programs,
nationally recognized
vascular surgery and
orthopedic services.
The IRMC Foundation, an
IRMC affiliate, is one of the
Wine Festival charities and
is a nonprofit, philanthropic
organization, whose
primary mission is to
generate contributions to
supplement the capital
requirements of the medical
center.
The second of this year's
Wine Festival charities is
The Visiting Nurse Associa-
tion of the Treasure Coast,
which provides a full range
of healthcare services in a
three-county area. The VNA
is the only licensed hospice
provider in Indian River
County. The nonprofit
organization also provides
wellness services such as flu

memories of Lucille Ball in
her classic "I Love Lucy"
episode in which she climbs

laugh that the grape stomp-
ing'is a great opportunity for
attendees to "feel what it's
like to have grapes mushing
through your toes."

HING NTERIUNMENI


Country
From page BI


engaged in weekend tour-
naments with other men
old enough to be his father.
By age 15, he won his first
tournament, besting his
older co-players who were a
little "ticked off," Mr. Owen
said,
Following graduation
from Vero Beach High
School, Mr. Owen and his
brother enrolled at Florida
Stalc University where his
brother played tennis and
Mr. Owen would win a
walk-on role as a member
of the school's golf team.
A water-skiing accident,
which required reconstruc-
tive surgery, scuttled those
plans. however, and Mr.
Owen found he had no
other contingency plan for
a career.
Meanwhile his brother
was going to classes, prac-
ticing tennis and generally
enjoying college life while
Mr. Owen was at his apart-
ment recuperating and
become despondent. Quite
by accident (or perhaps by
good luck), a neighbor had
a guitar, which Mr. Owen
borrowed and then began
teaching himself how to
play.
"I had always loved music
and grew up listening to
classic country," he said.
Mr. Owen attended class-
es and kept perfecting his
abilities on the guitar.
Live music coming from a
campus area bar drew Mr.
Owen inside, where he
noted a lone guitarist
singing some songs, just
the sort of thing that he felt
he could do.
So he promptly found the
bar owner and asked what
it would take to play a gig
there.
Apparently, his timing
was fortuitous and that
same night he was on stage
where he made $75 and was
treated to free beer and the
admiring glances of some
ladies present in the club.
The good-looking college
student quickly discovered
that golf was not his only
talent and within a short
time, his rich voice and
stage presence drew 100
and then several hundred
appreciative listeners.
Mr. Owen started a band
and named it "Yee Haw
Junction" in honor of that
well-known crossroads
tourist stop and rural com-
munity at the intersection
of State Road 60 and Flori-
da's Turnpike.
At first, Mr. Owen and the
band did covers of other
country stars' material. But
ultimately, Mr. Owen felt he
needed to find his "own
voice" by writing and per-
forming original material.
His first songs titled "It's
Been a While" and "8 Sec-
ond Ride" were well
received, and the fledgling
songster was on his way.
He was only nine credit
hours away from gradua-
tion with majors in English
and political science. But
once again in his young life,
he felt he was at a turning
point and major cross-
roads.
He called home to his
parents and told them that
he had been working very
hard on his music and
somehow felt that a door


"My dad had always wanted to be a profes-
sional golfer and he could have been, but life
and responsibilities prevented him from pur-
suing that dream. He told me that if this was
my dream...then I should go for it and that I
had their blessing:'
Jake Owen
country performer


was opening for him to pur-
sue that dream much as he
had previously hoped to
pursue golf.
"My dad had always
wanted to be a professional
golfer and he could have
been, but life and responsi-
bilities prevented him from
pursuing that dream, Mr.
Owen said.
"He told me that if this
was my dream ... then I
should go for it and that I
had their blessing," Mr.
Owen said.
Two days later, he was
packed and on his way to
the Mecca of country
music, Nashville.
There he found an apart-
ment on the outskirts of
town. He knew no one, but
had two guitars, a note-
book full of songs and a
mighty dream to fulfill.
A chance meeting at the
local bank opened yet
another door for Mr. Owen
when a bank employee
asked him what he did for
a living. She responded to
his answer by saying she
would like to hear his
music sometime. Luckily,
Mr. Owen had a CD and
gave it to her on the spot.
The next day he got a
call from Warner-Chappell
Music, which expressed
interest in his material.
Although an association
with that company ulti-
mately did not work out,
Mr. Owen, nonetheless,
was convinced that his
music had merit, and he
later met music producer
Jimmy Ritchey who took a
great interest in his career.
The pair collaborated with
Chuck Jones and wrote a
song titled "Ghost" that
they hoped country
recording star Kenny
Chesney would record.
That didn't happen, but
the song was noticed by
Renee Bell, senior vice
president for SonyBMG
Nashville, and she signed
him to a recording deal.
Up until now, Mr. Owen
had gone by his given
name of Josh, but he was
asked to change his name
because several Joshs
already were recording
country music. So Josh
adopted his grandfather's
name, "Jake."
He subsequently learned
that Kenny Chesney had
not only heard the song
"Ghost" but also knew the
song word-for-word. Dur-
ing a meeting with Ches-
ney after a concert in
Chicago, Mr. Owen heard
the country star sing the
song back to him.
, In what must have
seemed like a surrealistic,
dream, he noted that only
two years before, he had
attended a Kenny Chesney
concert at Tallahassee's
Leon County Civic Center,


sitting in the "nosebleed"
section. And now the star
was singing his song.
Since that time, his
career has taken off and
his dreams are coming
true. While he did not
become the touring golf
professional he had once
aspired to become, he
found something even
better.
"Maybe the golfing acci-
dent that ended my golfing
career happened because I
was supposed to do this.
How many people would
my golf game have affect-
ed? I hope that my music
and my songs can touch
people," he said.
The concert the musi-
cal portion of the Second
Annual Mardy's Tennis &
Jake's Music Fest event
will be held Tuesday, Dec.
18, at 7 p.m. in the Vero
Beach High School Per-
forming Arts Center.

Museum to have film courses


BY BARBARA ISENBERG
Entertainment writer
The Vero Beach Museum
of Art is well-known in the
area for its outstanding
collection of permanent
artworks as well as exciting
exhibits of internationally
renowned artists.
What may be less known,
however, is the fact that the
museum embraces a variety
of art forms. Beginning
Tuesday, Jan. 15, the
museum will screen a series
of award-winning, interna-
tional films as a part of its
Film Studies program.
The film course, "Trends
in International Cinema,"


will explore five films, which
will be shown on five
consecutive Tuesdays.
Participating students will
have the option of attending
either the 1:30 p.m. or 7
p.m. class.
This captivating and
entertaining project is the
latest in an ongoing series
of film-as-art courses

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Matt Kamprath has been
playing Ebenezer Scrooge in
the Nebraska Theatre Cara-
van's Production of "A
Christmas Carol" for 21
years, so it's not too surpris-
ing that the actor doesn't
own a cell phone and I have
to call him through his
hotel's central number.
"I don't like technology," he
said with a laugh. "I'm old-
school. I'm not of this centu-
ry. I'm not even of the last
century. I was born too late."
"A Christmas Carol" comes
to the Lyric Theatre on Dec.
21 and the Sunrise Theatre
on Dec. 23.
Mr. Kamprath's road to his
signature role was a round-
about one.
"I got a phone call that said
that (the actor playing) Bob
Cratchit had nodes on his
vocal chords and would I
step in," he said. "I told
them I'd really love to play
Scrooge. There was a pause.
She said that there were
some problems with the fel-
low playing Scrooge arid 10
days later, I was asked, 'How
would you like to play
Scrooge?' It fell into my lap."
For Mr. Kamprath, being a
part of Christmas is impor-
tant to him.
"It's trite, but since I was a
kid, Christmas was it for me.
Nuts to the spending and
buying; it's a special


moment. My parents owned
two recordings of a radio
broadcast of "A Christmas
Carol" with Lionel Barry-
more as Scrooge. By the
third grade, I had memo-
rized it, doing different voic-
es for the characters. Then
years pass and the role falls,
into my lap."
Mr. Kamprath came to
understand the character of
Scrooge after playing him for
many years, and says that
the word that embodies the
man everyone loves to hate
is gratitude.
"I believe Scrooge has
become a stereotype," he

said. "Audience members
need to go back and read the
story out loud. When you go
back to Dickens, when the
ghost of Christmas past vis-
its Scrooge, you see how
quickly he begins weeping
and is moved. The ghost of
Christmas present tells him
what he's missing out on. He
realizes that he has a trillion
more opportunities to make
a difference, and that gives
him a fire in his belly that
propels him through the
story."
While the show has musi-
cal numbers and Christmas
carols, Mr. Kamprath says
that it is not a musical in the
usual sense. The show is
adaptation done by the late
Charles Jones, who served as
executive director of the
Omaha Playhouse.
"He created a version that
many consider to have the
look and feel of a favorite
Christmas card from when
you were a kid, full of deep
color and richness," Mr.
Kamprath said. "That's the
version we produce, and by
golly, it's been effective. I've
been doing the east coast
tour for 21 years and we go


to the same venues, year
after year."
Occasionally, the company
performs before an audi-
ence consisting entirely of
children.
"It's never the hardest
thing. to get a laugh," Mr.
Kamprath said. "I love that,
but when you can get 1,800
people -1,800 children at a
touching moment, to be riv-
eted in silence...that means
a lot to me, and that hap-
pens. It may be their first
live theater. It is very special
for kids."

Caravan's Production of "A
Christmas Carol" comes to

Planned giving events


scheduled in November


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH The Visit-
ing Nurse Association &
Hospice Foundation hosted
three planned giving events
in November.
On Nov. 13, the VNA &

continuing education semi-
nar for professional advisors
sponsored by Wachovia

Debra Ashton, nationally
recognized gift planning
consultant and author of
"The Complete Guide to
Planned Giving," spoke
about current estate plan-
ning issues to 40 local attor-
neys, CPAs, and professional
advisors.
She presented "Case Stud-
ies from the Trenches that
will Curl Your Toes" and led a
discussion on charitable
lead trusts and the dilem-
mas that. may arise as these
professionals work with
their clients on estate plan-
ning issues.
Additionally, Ms. Ashton
applied her more than 30


years of experience in
planned giving at a break-
fast seminar on the morning
of Nov. 13 entitled "Disin-
heriting the IRS: Practical
Estate Planning in Plain
English."
Those in attendance
learned ways to successfully
plan for the future, includ-
ing correct structuring of
wills, tax information, and
charitable giving. Andrew J.

Lynch, O'Haire, Kmetz, Nut-
tall, Elwell & Co., and

ca Private Wealth Manage-
ment sponsored the annual
Nightingale Society Lun-
cheon on Nov. 30, at Quail
Valley River Club in appreci-
ation of those who have
remembered the VNA in
their estate plans.

tiative, a new technology

tion such as blood pressure,
weight, blood sugar and
daily health conditions to
their doctor and VNA nurse
via a telephone line.

Golfers

shoot to

next level
BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
For Ryan Black and Jack
Beindorf, success has been
par for the course.
Both have established
themselves as two of the top
golfers in the area, with
Black helping Lincoln Park
Academy to the top of the
pack and Beindorf doing
the same for St. Edward's
School.
Now, the duo, who have
become friends through
years of competing against
each other, will try to do the
same thing for their respec-
tive colleges as they make
the jump to the next level.
"I'm real excited," Bein-
dorf said. "I want to get up
there and see what I can
do."
Beindorf is taking his
ever-growing resume to
Auburn, joining a team that
finished third in the SEC
Championship last season,
as well as tying for second at
the NCAA East Regional.
Although the Tigers stag-
gered to a 30th-place finish
at the NCAA Champi-
onship, the program took
-significant steps in trying to
reach the upper echelon by
signing a highly-touted
recruiting class headlined
by Beindorf.

Former Dodgers' owner


gets a Hall of Fame pass


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer

VERO BEACH Who
says you can't go home
again?
Fifty years after moving
the Dodgers from Brook-
lyn to Los Angeles, the
late Walter 0' Malley
returns to -New York as a
member of the Baseball
Hall of Fame.
"This is a historic day
for the Dodger fran-
chise," Dodger owner
and chairman Frank
McCourt said.
"Walter O' Malley was a
visionary who changed
the face of baseball for-
ever, and we couldn't be
more proud to see him
earn his rightful spot in
Cooperstown."
0' Malley, who was the
catalyst in the westward
expansion of Major
League Baseball as well
as facilitating the
Dodgers' move to Vero
Beach in 1948, received
the minimum number of
nine votes from the vet-
erans committee to earn
his spot among the
greats of the game.
A former lawyer, 0'
Malley joined the then-
Brooklyn Dodgers as its
full-time vice president
and general counsel in

"He's got the demeanor of
a professional golfer," Saint
Edward's head coach
Richard Hartley said. "He's a
solid player in all area, from
.his drives. which are consis-
te It.
I T':His greatest strength is
his mental game. If he has a
;,bad shot, he can get it out of
" his mind."
Black, too, will have the
luxury of moving from a
solid high school program
Lincoln Park finished
atop District 19-1A last sea-
son, as well as third in
Region 7-1A to the Uni-
versity of West Florida. The
Argonauts finished the
i recent fall season ranked
No. 1 in Division II and are
consistently in contention
for the top spot, winning a
NCAA Division II Champi-
onship in 2001 under cur-
rent coach Steve Fell.
"They have a really good
program," Black said. "I was
looking at the school for a
while and I was hoping he
(Fell) would look at me.
"It all worked out."
Both Black and Beindorf
took steps in making their
soon-to-be coaches aware
of their prowess on the
course.
"This past fall, I stopped
by and played nine holes
and he (Fell) took me
around campus," Black said.
"He told me he would be
glad to have me be part of
the team."
Beindorf cultivated a rela-
tionship with Auburn head
coach Mike Griffin for sever-
,al years before getting the
scholarship offer.
"My brother goes there
(Auburn)," Beindorf said.
"When I would go visit him,
I would go and talk to coach
4 Griffin.
"He followed me around
watching me play."
There hasn't been much
not to like when viewing
either standout on the
course for the past two sea-
sons. In the 2006 District 19-


1A tournament, Black
helped Lincoln Park to a
second-place finish by
shooting a 71 for the tourna-
ment.
Black's score put him in
contention for an individual
title as the 18-year-old fin-
ished in second, just three
strokes behind teammate
Justin Dorward.
Saint Edward's season
ended with a fourth-place
showing at the tournament,
'but the story of the day was
Beindorf who finished with
a 73.
Black went on to shoot a
73 at the Region 7-1A tour-
nament, just finishing short
of a chance to compete at
the state tournament.
"He has a complete game,"
Lincoln Park head coach Rik
Gray said. "He has it all
going for him,"
This past season, both
players made strides to
become more all-around
golfers and it showed on the
course. Black carried a 35.6
season average into the dis-
trict tournament where he
proceeded to shoot a 70,
which tied him for second
place, just one stroke off the
lead.
Beindorf, whose season
average was 37.1, nailed a 73
at the tournament, good
enough for fifth place.
"I struggled a little bit dur-
ing the regular season,"
Beindorf said. "I played bet-
ter toward the end of the
season at districts and
regionals."


It was at the regional tour-
nament that Beindorf
played perhaps his best golf
of the season. The 18-year-
old shot a 70, which earned
him second place, just four
shots behind Dorward.
The Vero Beach resident's
performance earned him a
chance to move on to the
state tournament for the
second time in his career.
His overall score of 152 tied
him for 14U1, an impressive
showing but nonetheless
short of Beindorf's expecta-
tions.
"I was disappointed at
how I played at states,"
Beindorf said. "Maybe I put
too much pressure on
myself."
While Black's score of 72 at
the regionals did not lead to
a chance at the state tourna-
ment, the improvement in
his game was remarkably
noticeable especially for
Gray who's coached Black
since sixth grade.
"He was this tiny little guy
shooting around 40," Gray
said. "When you're a little
kid your short game is
important. He had a fantas-
tic short game.
"When a lot of kids grow
up and hit it longer they for-
get about their short game..
He has gotten longer, but
has continued to have a fan-
tastic short game."
With' their high school
careers now behind them,
both Black and Beindorf are
not only looking to excel at
the collegiate circuit, but

hopefully on the pro tour as
well.
"That's one of my goals,
but I have to get a whole lot
better," Black said. "I know
this coach (Fell) can help me
do this. This is one of the
reasons I went to that
school."
Beindorf, too, dreams of
one day following in the
footsteps of the greats of the
game, but for now is focused
on what immediately lies
ahead.
"We'll see," Beindorf said.
"For now, I need to get my
game ready for the next
level."

Later, he purchased
stock in the ball club, and
on Oct. 26, 1950, O'Malley
became president and
majority owner of the
team.
Unable to strike a deal
to build a new stadium in
downtown Brooklyn to
replace aging Ebbets
Field, 0' Malley engi-
neered the move to Los


Angeles following the
1957 season.
Under 0' Malley's lead-
ership, the Dodgers
enjoyed tremendous suc-
cess in Los Angeles as
well as Brooklyn in
becoming one of base-
ball's successful franchis-
es.

Woods, friends


pays visit to PGA


Learning Center


t's not every day that golf's
best player and biggest star
come to visit.
This past week, Tiger
Woods and his friends from
Nike dropped in at the PGA
Learning Center in Port St.
Lucie.
Our sport's No. 1 player was
on-hand to introduce the
newest Nike drivers and
answer questions about the
progress of his estate on
Jupiter Island, his game and,
of course, Nike's latest
products.
"They're slow down here,"
he stated when asked about
his timetable for moving his
wife, Elin, and their new
daughter, Sam, to the area.
"I'd like to be here now."
Woods grew up in Califor-
nia near the ocean and wants
to be near the sea while he
and Elin begin their family life
together.
"That's why we chose this
area," he continued. "I grew
up near the ocean and so did
Elin. It's a great area."
But he wasn't here to talk
about his future residence.
The reason for Tiger's visit
was to promote Nike's new,
second generation of
SasQuatch drivers, the SQ
SUMO2 5900 and SQ SUMO
5000.
While he has no problems
with the look, feel or perform-
ance of the square-shaped
SUMO2 5900, he will only
carry the more traditionally
shaped SUMO 500 in his bag.
"I hit .(the 5900) too
straight," Woods explained.
"On tour, I need to shape the
ball, and I have to change my
swing too much to make the
square one go anywhere but
straight."
Sounds like a stick for us
mere mortal golfers, if you ask
me. Tiger showed us how well
each driver performs, and we
were treated to a lot of great
banter with the world's best.
Tiger began his warm-up
with soft, short wedge shots.
From there, he moved to his
8-iron and then his 4-iron.
After several beautiful shots
with his 4-iron, he was asked
about the distance he hits
that club.
"I can carry it about 210,"
was his answer. "I can
comfortably hit it from about
185 to 210."
But what about the times
on television that we hear he
has 198 yards to the flag and
he's hitting a 7-iron? That
elicited a slight grin.
Only in very thin air or
downwind would he attempt
to hit a7-iron that far. He said
he swings at no more than 90
percent, preferring to keep
his tempo and speed at 80
percent.
Properly warmed up and
ready, Tiger moved to the
driver. The results were
incredible.
"I can carry my driver 290,"
he said. He made it look
effortless as he hit draws,
fades and bombed the ball to
the far reaches of the range.
"I can hit the square model
6 or 8 yards farther, but it's

difficult to work the ball," he
continued. He then went on
to show us how to hit
different shots, including his
"stinger," and showed us how
with the same swing he could
work his driver, hitting soft
draws and fades, while the
new square model simply
wanted to go straight.
Tiger plays all Nike equip-
ment except for his putter.
With a multitude of victories
behind it, it's unlikely that his
Scotty Cameron will be
replaced any time soon.
"My putter's been pretty
good to me," he said with a
smile. "I put it in play in the
'Byron Nelson in 1999. Twelve
majors with one putter is not
too bad."
Remembering how he
broke his 4-iron on Sunday at
The Masters earlier this year, I
asked him about his backup
clubs and what he brings with
him to an event.
"I have an extra driver,
fairwaywoods, wedges and a
putter," he said. "My backup
putter is a Nike."
He brings the extra driver,
with specs exactly matching
the one in his bag, in case he
cracks the face on the one he's
playing. Judging by how hard
he hit it that day, I can
understand the concern.
Tiger's fairway woods are
slightly different, allowing
him to switch his 3-wood or
5-wood for one that hits the
ball slightly higher or lower
than the one in the bag. He
brings several wedges,
changing them out as
conditions mandate.
Don't look for a hybrid in
'Tiger's bag anytime soon.
However, by the time he hits
the senior circuit, he will
likely carry "a 9-wood or an
11-thing."
I don't carry an 11-wood
thing, but I do have a hybrid
or two, and I know the new
SQ SUMO2 5900 driver will
find a spot in my bag.
Who knows, we may never
play like Tiger, but the new
Nike equipment will help us
close the gap, even if it's just
by a little.
I just need to get him into
my scramble foursome when
he moves here. We sure could
use a ringer.
