New voting system trades screens for ballots


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Instead of voting with a
few taps on a computer
screen, county voters will
cast paper ballots in the
August election on the
third voting system adopted
since the disputed 2000
presidential contest.
Supervisor of Elections
Kay Clem, who advocated
keeping touch-screen vot-
ing, received County Com-
mission approval last week
to pay $329,355 toward a
$672,000 voting system that
will read hand-marked
paper ballots,
After the Jan. 29 presiden-
tial preference primary and
statewide property tax ref-
erendum, touch-screen
machines will be scrapped
and replaced by optical
scanners, Mrs, Clem, who
could have updated the
touch-screen machines


with printers, likened the
overhaul to "buying a car
when all you need are tires."
On Aug. 26, when voters
choose political party nomi-
nees for the County Com-
mission and sheriff, they
will cast paper ballots for
the first time since 2002.
Florida lawmakers
banned paper ballots six
years ago, and Indian River
and 14 other Florida coun-
ties invested in touch-
screen voting machines. All
told, Indian. River County
invested $2 million in 465
machines.
Before the switch to
touch-screen voting, county
voters cast punch-card bal-
lots.
Earlier this year, state law-
makers mandated a switch
to optical scanners. Florida
ordered the overhaul after a
Sarasota County candidate
blamed "pervasive malfunc-

Mine projects


face scrutiny


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY Backed by residents
worried about the envi-
ronmental impact of min-
ing, the county Planning
and Zoning Commission
recommended a 6-month
moratorium on permits
for new rock and sand
mines last week.
Commissioners voted 7-
0 for the proposal, and
encouraged the County
Commission to draft min-
ing regulations during the
moratorium.
Final approval rests with
the County Commission,
which was set to weigh the
proposal on Tuesday.
For two hours, 24 resi-


dents asked the Planning
and Zoning Commission
to recommend the mora-
torium, which was
brought on by opposition
to the proposed Wild
Turkey Estates sand mine
on 82nd Avenue.
"Where is the harm in
saying, 'Let's wait, and let's
investigate?'" said Linda
Mitchell, who lives near
the 835-acre site. "You can
always go back and
approve what's being
asked for."
Commissioners were set
to consider approval of the
Wild Turkey Estates appli-
cation, but project devel-
opers pulled the request
Dec. 12, a day before the

In August, 2004, the Indian
River County Supervisor of
Elections Office began
gearing up for the Aug. 31,
2008, primary election,
which included program-

voting machines stored in
its warehouse. Vero Beach
resident Tom Provencher, a
volunteer with the elec-
tions office, who works
with systems technician
Casey Taska of Lakewood
Park, gather the flash-type
cards and seal each
machine after they were
programmed. The
machines will be replaced
with optical scanner

'Hope' for holidays

at annual giveaway


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
FELLSMERE Plan-
ning for Christmas for
hundreds of needy fami-
lies takes 5,000 gifts,
almost 200 handmade
blankets, more than 100
bicycles and untold
dozens of cold sodas, ears
of corn and glazed Krlspy
Kreme doughnuts.
For its annual Christmas
giveaway, Operation Hope
collected donations from
across the state, and then
distributed the items to
needy families during a
four-hour holiday party
Sunday afternoon.
Jesse Zermeno, who
founded the nonprofit
organization to aid
migrant farm workers 10
years ago, applauded the
agencies, businesses and
churches that sent dona-
tions and volunteers.
"It's just phenomenal
what the community has
done," he said.
Two weeks before
Christmas, families trav-
eled from as far away as
Cocoa in northern Brevard
County and Pahokee on
the southeastern shore of
Lake Okeechobee to the
Operation Hope campus
on County Road 512.
Once there, more than
2,000 revelers were treated


to bands, carolers and a
troupe of Colombian
dancers. At 2:30 p.m.,
Santa Claus emerged, a
toy-laden sack over his
shoulder. A pack of
squealing children fol-
lowed,
Leslie Simons, a Bare-
foot Bay grandmother,
brought two of her young
grandchildren to Opera-
tion Hope, 3-year-old Erik
and 19-month-old Ryan.
As she surveyed the deep
crowd waiting to reach
Santa, she said she was
surprised by the turnout.
"I want the kids to enjoy
Christmas," she said. "I
miss it because my kids
are all grown up."
At the face-painting
tent, hundreds of children
waited as Iretta Parley and
other "Faith Painters"
from Calvary Chapel St.
Cloud dabbed on red-and-
black Spiderman masks
and pastel flowers and
stars.
Donations poured in
from across Brevard and
Indian River counties for
the 11th annual giveaway.
Indian River Citrus
grower Hale Groves sent
fruit. So did Fellsmere-
based Sun Ag. Farmers
from Okeechobee and
Pahokee donated and
served corn-on-the-cob,

a U.S. House race last year
and auditors discovered
18,000 blank ballots.
For the new Indian River
County machines, Florida
Secretary of State Kurt
Browning negotiated with
California-based Sequoia
Voting Systems, the manu-
facturer of the touch-screen
machines and the new opti-
cal scanners. Mrs. Clem also
received a $779,725 bid for
equipment from Dominion
Voting Systems, a Canadian
company not yet certified
for Florida elections.
"It really makes no sense
for us to purchase a whole
new voting system now,"
Mrs. Clem wrote to the
,County Commission. "It
'would be a huge waste of
money for Indian River
County taxpayers."
A $342,646 state grant will
pay for 54 optical scanners,
one for each polling place.
But that leaves the county to
pay for 11 backup optical


scanners and other updates,
including new voting
booths, poll worker training
and equipment to store the
optical scanners at the $4
million Supervisor of Elec-
tions Office warehouse that
opened last year. :
Five years ago, the county
sold its voting booths for $5
and $10 apiece, Mrs. Clem
wrote in her funding
request. Now, new booths
will cost $200 each.
"This is really a bone of
contention with me,"; Mrs.
Clem told commissioners.
Ballots will cost 40 cents.
apiece.
To comply with federal
disability laws, Indian River
County will keep a handful
of touch-screen machines
for blind and disabled vot-'
ers through 2012 the year
all touch-screen voting will
be outlawed statewide.
By then, Mrs. Clem said,
federal or state lawmakers
will likely mandate another
voting system.

State freeze had little impact on local funds


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- When a state fund soured
in late November, officials
withdrew millions of local
dollars, including operating
funds for the county and
school district, before an
emergency freeze halted the
pullouts.
Clerk of the Court Jeffrey
Barton, who oversees coun-
ty investments, pulled $66
million from the Local Gov-
ernment Investment Pool
Nov. 29, the day before the
State Board of Administra-
tion suspended with-
drawals.
i "I transferred out our $66
million to protect your
money," Mr. Barton told the


County Commission last
week.
Since the run-on-the-
bank panic unfolded last
month, the state has hired
BlackRock, a Wall Street
investment management
firm, to salvage the fund.
And last week, the state
appointed former state
Comptroller Bob Milligan, a
retired Marine general, to
head.the SBA.
"The general's vast experi-
ence, integrity and honor
will be certain to restore
confidence in the manage-
ment of the state's invest-
ment funds," Gov. Charlie
Crist said in a news release.
Indian River County has
$23 million remaining in the
Local Government Invest-
ment Pool, Mr. Barton told


commissioners. Almost $4
million cannot be with-
drawn part of the state
effort to stabilize the fund.
"They are worried about a
run on the fund right now,"
Diane Bernardo, finance
director for the Clerk of the
Court, told commissioners.
Michael Degutis, assistant
superintendent for business
and finance, withdrew
almost$7 million of school
district money a week
before transactions were
stopped.,
Early last month, the SBA,
which manages the fund,
announced that struggling
real estate investments were
squeezing the fund. '
A three-member panel led
by the governor shut down
the fund until Dec. 6. When

Indian River County with-

fund reopened, Mr. Barton
said, and re-invested the
money in more secure U.S.
Treasury bonds.
"We've taken every pre-
caution we can to safeguard

REVIEW

Red tide surfaces
on Indian River County shore
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Reports of persistent
cough, respiratory distress, watery eyes led the coun-
ty Health Department to issue an advisory last week.
Red tide has returned.
Residents and visitors to the area near Wabasso
Beach complained of the symptoms. Though red tide
is not a widespread public health threat, the toxic
algae can produce mild and short-lived symptoms.
Red tide is caused by large numbers of neurotoxin-
producing microscopic algae. Red tide gets its name
because it can turn surrounding water a reddish-
brown color. Algae blooms can last up to several
months, but conditions change daily based on wind.
Exposure to red tide can lead to eye, nose and
throat irritation, but the symptoms usually fade when
a person leaves the affected area. Red tide can also
kill fish.
Residents near the affected area are advised to
close their windows, and may want to wear paper fil-
ter masks outdoors if winds are blowing from the
shore. Swimming in red tide can, cause burning eyes
and skin irritation.
Health Department officials also said locally har-
vested clams, oysters and other shellfish should not
be eaten until the advisory is lifted. Precautions
should also be taken when preparing fish caught in
local waters, the Health Department said.

State: Local land buy will aid
conservation efforts
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY An $11.2 million deal
for development rights will help protect more than
1,500 acres of prairie and scrub, and help a state
effort to establish a wildlife corridor, an environmen-
tal consultant said last week.
In September, the County Commission bought con-
servation easements at Padgett Branch, a 1,585-acre
property west of Vero Beach on State Road 60.
Padgett Branch is part of the Kissimmee-St. Johns
River Connector Project, a 36,000-acre swath span-
ning Indian River and Okeechobee counties.
The corridor contains habitat for gopher tortoises,
sandhill cranes and other threatened species. State
environmental planners eventually want all of the
land preserved.
Jim Muller, an environmental consultant hired by
the state, detailed other benefits of the project to the
County Commission: wetlands on the Padgett Branch
parcel filter .water before it reaches the Floridan
Aquifer,/ improving water quality, while prescribed
burns on uplands could prevent wildfires.
Padgett Branch was earmarked for preservation by
the Florida Forever conservation program. State
planners labeled the land as "essential" to the success
of the river connector project.
"The essential parcels are the ones in that project
that should be acquired before any of the other ones
are," Mr. Muller said.
But Guy Barber, a Vero Beach resident, questioned
commissioners for using taxpayer dollars when they
purchased the development rights this fall. He wor-
ried that buying development rights instead of the

Pepsi Bottling Group of
Melbourne provided sodas.
Families carted home food
provided through the Trea-
sure Coast Food Bank.
While Operation Hope
marshaled a warehouse full
of donations, teams of vol-
unteers from across Florida
ensured a smooth after-
noon.
Boys and Girls Clubs of
Indian River County volun-
teers served hot dogs and
other snacks.
But Operation Hope, like
other aid organizations,
also confronted diminish-
ing donations this year.
Christmases past have
attracted up to 300 donated
bikes. This year, Operation
Hope gave away 109.
Other giving was down,
too, said Jann Zermeno, the
co-founder and vice presi-
dent.
Donations to Operation
Hope began to dip after the
2004 Indian Ocean tsunami
and sunk again following
Hurricane Katrina in late
2005 as donors began giving
to relief efforts, Mrs. Zer-
meno said.
Now, combined with a
cooling economy, a hous-
ing-market slowdown and
rising Indian River County


unemployment, Operation
Hope has been left to do
more with less.
As the holiday neared,
Mrs. Zermeno fielded calls
from people asking if the
giveaway would be can-
celed.
It was still on, she told
them.
"Rain or shine, we're
here," Mrs. Zermeno said
Sunday.
Operation Hope* was
founded in 1997 to provide
aid and education to
migrant farm workers and
their families. Since then,
the program has grown.
Almost four years ago, an
anonymous donor offered
$3 million so Operation
Hope could open a commu-
nity center at a former
Fellsmere flea market.
In October, 2006, Opera-
tion Hope launched a suc-
cessful pre-kindergarten
program.
Before school started in
August, Operation Hope
handed out 600 backpacks
stuffed with school sup-
plies.
For Mr. Zermeno, the
Christmas giveaway ful-
filled his vision of giving
back to the families who
needed help the most.
"It's just awesome," he
said, "to give back to the
community."

land itself would not prevent development at
Padgett Branch.
"You're just throwing out millions of dollars
in airspace out there, claiming you have con-
servation rights, claiming you have develop-
ment rights, but you don't have anything to
stop it," M. Barber said.
Will Collins, the county attorney, said the
rights would allow the county to prevent
development.
Commissioners praised the purchase, and
voted 5-0 for a' resolution supporting Florida
Forever and encouraging the state to continue
funding the program.
"You have to have a long-term vision and
you have want to protect and preserve for the
future," Commissioner Sandra Bowden said.
"And be brave enough to step forward and do
it."
School Board OKs cattle lease
at Vero airport
VERO BEACH School Board members
rustled up a unanimous vote last week, and


approved a five-year, $100,000 lease that will
allow Vero Beach High School 'students to
graze cattle on 24 acres of land at Vero Beach
Municipal Airport.
Both the Airport Commission and the City
Council signed off on the lease earlier this
year.
VBHS students will use the land to study
conservation, forestry management and other
programs. Students will work alongside staff
members from the state Division of Forestry,
the county Mosquito Control District aind
Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution,
according to Indian River County School Dis-
trict documents. About 100 students partici-
pate in the program.
Previously, the VBHS students used about
10 acres of pastureland near the airport.
To rent the airport land, the school district
will pay the city $20,000 per year, but the dis-
trict is eligible for a':tent credit if'it makes
improvements to the property.
VBHS will graze up to five cattle on the land.
Donkeys, goats and sheep are also part of the
agriculture program.


A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission inspector who reviewed the land
earlier this year said a handful of cattle would
not damage the scrub habitat.

Piper pioneers technology
for new jet
VERO BEACH Piper Aircraft will patent a
new technique used in the construction of the
PiperJet, which is being developed at the
company's Vero Beach facility.
Piper will use a new metal bonding tech-
nique to manufacture wings for the $2.2 mil-
lion Piperlet, according to a report published
on the Web site of trade publication Aviation
International News.
The new technique will allow for "lower
labor costs and higher quality," Piper CEO Jim
Bass told Aviation International News.
Work is underway on the PiperJet prototype,
with the first flight of the jet scheduled for
mid-2008. Piper plans to deliver the first jets
in 2010.

Stop sign sense

I find that politics supercede common sense in the place-
ment of stop signs and the example I use is on 16th Street,
inVero Beach.
At this site through traffic is the east west corridor on 16th
Street, but stop signs are placed to stop this through traffic
and allow vehicles that come from 51st Court, which is a no
outlet road on both the North and South side of 16th Street
It seems to me that who you know and not what is right
decides if and where a stop sign is needed. Money talks.

Nowhere clean to sit

This rant is about the very unsightly conditions at the
fishing pier under our beautiful bridge going across the
Indian River.
There are many benches to sit on, but they are used for
cleaning fish. What a picturesque spot to relax and enjoy the
scenery without any place to sit.

Choose wisely

Leading up to the primaries, there seems to be many peo-
ple who are looking for someone to vote for.
Should religious belief qualify you for the highest office in
the land?
Probably not.
Should the candidate be considered above others
because of gender or color of skin?
Certainly not.
We want someone who will do what is necessary to carry
us through the next four years.


I feel sorry for women in general, and black women in
particular.
Should Oprah be the guide as to the best candidate, or fol-
low others who believe it would be nice to have a woman in
the White House?
I still have a lot of faith in people choosing on merit. With
all who are running, it's a tough decision.

'Happy Holidays' is a safe bet
To the writer who says he is not offended when some-
one wishes him "Merry Christmas," I can agree with him.
But there is a difference between being offended,
which some .non-Christians may be, or taking the atti-.
tude I have always taken; accepting that some people are
either insensitive or ignorant but no offense is intended,
therefore none is taken.


However, people who believe in the reason for Christ-
mas should realize that the entire world is not Christian
and when in doubt, "Happy Holidays" can be a greeting
without ignoring the fact that the other party may have
different beliefs.
To show how little the greeting really means, last year
when shopping the. cashier in a store said automatically
to me, "Have a Merry Christmas," and I smiled and said,
"I will if you will have a Happy Chanukah."
She looked at me and then laughed, as I didn't sound
offended, but how little it meant.
Ten minutes later, another purchase, same cashier,
and she repeated the original, as did I. Boy was she sur-
prised. My point was just to make people r alize we
aren't all from the same mold.

Clearing up confusion about the task bar


hme task bar can be an
area of confusion for
many new computer
users.
On mostWindows
machines it's at the bottom of
the screen, with the start
button as the very first object
on the left side of the bar and
the clock the last object at the
far right. That is, if your task
bar is docked to the bottom of
the screen.You see, the task
bar can be moved to the top,
left side, right side or its
"default position," the bottom
of the screen.
But what about all those
other icons and buttons on
the bar, what do those do?
Let's take a look at the
things that make up the task
bar, why it's important to pay
attention to it and how to
customize your task bar to
better suit your needs.
. The first item on the task
bar is the start button.
Ironically, this is also where


you go to shut down. Click the
start button and you will be
able to access the programs
installed on your computer
and other things, such as the
printers and the system
control panel.
The programs section of
the start menu is where you
go to launch programs that
you don't have a shortcut for
on your desktop or the quick
launch area of the task bar. As
the name implies, the start
button is the place to go to
start most things on your
machine.
Next in line, just to the right
of the start button, you may
find the aforementioned
"quick launch" area. Here you
will find more shortcuts,
usually to commonly used
applications such as Internet
Explorer and Outlook
Express. You may even see an
icon called "show desktop" (if
you hold your mouse over an
icon without clicking and


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

wait, you'll see its name). This
is a great icon to click when
you have one or more
windows open and taking up
the whole screen. Clicking it
minimizes everything, so you
can get back to the desktop.
Now what if you don't have
a quick launch area in your
task bar? Ifyou click an empty
area of the taskbar with the


right mouse button, a pop-up
menu will open. Hold your
mouse over tool bars, and a
list of available toolbars will
appear. Click the quick
launch toolbar, and a check
mark should appear before it.
Then, click anywhere outside
of the little menu, and it will
close and you should now see
the quick launch area of the
task bar.
Shortcuts here can be easily
added or removed by right-
clicking the icon you want
removed and clicking delete
and dragging a shortcut that
you would like there and
dropping it in place. Again,
the quick launch area is a
great place to house your .
most frequently used icons.
Next to the quick launch
area is a long section of task
bar that will be empty unless
a program or application is
running. When you launch a
program such as Internet
Explorer, Word or Outlook


Express, a button will appear
on the task bar representing
the program that is running.
This is important to keep
an eye on, as today's
nachineslet you launch
multiple programs aiid open
multiple windows (this is
called multi-tasking).
Keeping an eye on what
buttons appear in your task
bar helps you manage what
applications are running,
let's you jump back and forth
from one open window to
another and close unwanted
windows by "right-clicking"
the button and selecting
close. It's not uncommon to
have many buttons repre-
senting active windows on
your system, but a good rule
of thumb is to close any
windows you are not
accessing and that will free
up more computer brain-
power.
The next area on the task
bar, to the right of any


application buttons that,
might be running, you will
notice a number of icons
surrounded by a fine
rectangle. The iconsmin this
area (known as the system,,'
tray) are different omie"
icons in the quick launch
area. These icons represent
programs that are running in
the background and using
computer brainpowerAn an
optimized machine you'll
usually only find a few items
in the system tray: the clock,
volume control and an icon
representing your anti-virus.
Unfortunately, most
machines are plagued with
items in the system tray
eating up computer horse-
power and can use a good
weeding out.

remind you of how fortunate
you are. Gather a circle of
friends. If they are far away,
keep in touch via the phone

good physical and mental
health to share.
If you are a caregiver,
make time for yourself. I
have learned this lesson the
hard way. I cannot help my
husband, Roy, cope with his
Alzheimer's and Parkinson's
diseases if I am so run down
emotionally and physically
that I cannot see straight. I
have learned to ask for help
from organizations and from
friends. I have learned to say,
"no," when I cannot do
something, and "yes" to
myself when it means taking
time to go out and do
something for me.


It is not being selfish to
take care of yourself. You
cannot be a good caregiver if
you are not feeling well
physically and emotionally.
Remember, life and health
are precious gifts. Treasure 1,
them. If you are ill, I wish
you a return to good health.,,
If your illness is chronic and
you have good and bad days,
I wish you many more good
ones. If someone you know
is ill or alone, reach out to
them. You will never regret
helping someone out when
they're down.

Ground broken


for senior housing


BY lAY MEISEL
Associate managing editor
ROSELAND Years ago
as a child, Ma Jaya Sati
Bhagavati, the spiritual
director of Kashi, visited
her grandmother at a nurs-
ing facility in New York
City.
She saw her grandmoth-
er in a bathtub with anoth-
er woman.
"They were treating her
like a ragged doll," Ma Jaya
recalled last week. "I swore
then that I would do some-
thing so that I would never
see that again when I grew
older."
As part of that pledge,
Kashi officials, community
leaders and government
representatives broke
ground last week for By the
River, an affordable hous-
ing community for seniors.
The project will initially
have 41 units and rent will
be based on federal hous-
ing guidelines. Each room
will have a view of the sur-
rounding natural foliage
and access to the St. Sebas-
tian River.
It won't be a "place where
people come to die," Ma
Jaya said. Instead the focus
will be on creating a com-
munity where people find
assistance and compan-
ionship, Malaya said.
At 75, Virginia Paw of
Vero Beach, the first per-
son to sign up to live at By
the River, doesn't plan to


go there just to die.
"It's affordable and I can
help other people instead
of sitting in a bedroom and
watching television," she
said.
Ms. Paw said Kashi's
desire to create a commu-
nity is at odds with the
atmosphere at many nurs-
ing homes.
"They throw you in a
rocking chair and hope you
die," she said.
That won't be the case at
By the River, said Durga
Das Hutner, president and
treasurer.
Construction will begin
Jan. 8 and the first units are
expected to be completed
by the end of 2008, he said.
By the River is partnering
with various organizations
within the community,
such as the Visiting Nurses
Association and the Senior
Resource Association, to
provide services and pro-
grams for the residents, he
said.
Kashi, an interfaith spiri-
tual community, plans to
provide the residents with
Yoga classes, he said.
By the River also will
stress programs that bring
in younger people to spend
time with the seniors, he
said.
Kashi officials say that
statistics support the need
for By the River.
As of 2005, census infor-
mation showed that Indian
River County's population


By the River, an assisted-living complex under construction


was 30 percent elderly,
with 11 percent living at or
below the poverty level,
said Sita Gange, public
relations director for By the
River.
The project, expected to
cost $6 million, includes
$1.2 from Indian River
County and $500,000 from
the Federal Home Loan
Bank.
Additional funding is
being sought for the proj-
ect.
In May, Gov. Charlie Crist
vetoed a $1.6 million grant
that legislators earmarked
for By the River. Last week,


at a meeting of state law-
makers, By the River board
member Barbara Sadaka
said her group would seek
state funds during the 2008
legislative session. Senate
President Ken Pruitt, R-
Port St. Lucie, told her it
was important to establish
a dialogue with the gover-
nor's staff to help receive
the funding.
Ms. Gange said dona-
tions are welcome.
Sebastian Mayor Andrea
Coy said the project is well
worth the funding and it
will fill a need in the com-
munity.

"Many folks are getting
left behind and are silently
suffering," she said. "I've
heard a lot of talk about
affordable housing for sen-
iors, but until today, I've
seen no action."
Wesley Davis, chairman
of the Indian River County
Commission, applauded
Ma Jaya for advocating
such causes as affordable
housing for seniors.
"The causes Ma takes up
are for those who don't
have an advocate," Mr.
Davis said. "She sees the
void and steps forward
with a solution."


State Sen. Mike Hari-
dopolis said the project will
become reality because a
lot of people came together
to support it.
It will give people the
opportunity to "retire with
dignity," he said.
That is something to
which Ms. Paw looks for-
ward.
"Now I get to sit on a
couch (at home). I can't
take it anymore," she said,
referring to the boredom.

Philanthropist dedicated life to helping needy families


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staffriter
VERO BEACH Eliza-
beth "Betty" Egan, who
founded the Samaritan
Center for Homeless Fami-
lies, died Dec. 6 following a
brief illness. She was 78.
In the early 1990s, Mrs.
Egan, at the time a board
member of Catholic Chari-
ties Diocese of Palm
Beach,' joined with other
churches and nonprofit
agencies to build facility


to house homeless fami-
lies.
The result of those
efforts, the interfaith, non-
profit Samaritan Center,
opened in 1992.
"We're so fortunate to
have known Betty," said
Julia Keenan, executive
director of the Samaritan
Center.
"She had a real dedica-
tion for the needs of peo-
ple who were less fortu-
nate," Ms. Keenan
continued.,


In addition to providing
shelter for homeless fami-
lies, the Samaritan Center
also offers job training,
and budgeting and parent-
ing classes. And its goal is
to provide long-term tran-
sitional housing and guid-
ance for homeless fami-
lies, readying them to live
independently.
Mrs. Egan served on the
Samaritan Center Advisory
Board for 10 years, and later
as an honorary member.
A devoted Catholic, Mrs.


Egan wasalso a member of
the Order of Malta, a
worldwide service organi-
zation made up of Catholic
laypeople, and the Eques-
trian Order of the Holy
Sepulchre, a prestigious
Catholic spiritual group.
As a member of the
Riomar Country Club, Vero
Beach'Country Club and
Oak Harbor Club, Mrs.
Egan was an avid golfer.
Mrs. Egan was born in
Irvington, N.J. She gradu-
ated from Oak Knoll


School in Summit, N.J.,
attended St. Elizabeth Col-
lege in Morristown,- N.J.,
and moved to Vero Beach
*in 1965.
Survivors include sons
John Nelson and Greg Nel-
son; daughters Bernadette
Emerick, Catherine Rohm,
Mary Shinn, Anne Sinnott
and Barbara Dillon; step-
daughters Patricia Egan
and Catherine Gilet; sisters
Mildred Williams, Marie
Barkhorn and Dorothy
Selzer; and 18 grandchil-


dren.
Her husband, Bernard
Egan, was a citrus ,grower
and a member of the Flori-
da Agriculture 'Hall of
Fame. With his wife, he
helped found the Samari-
tan Center. Mr. Egan died
in 2004, the day after he
turned 90.
In lieu of flowers, the
Egan family requests that
donations be sent to the
Samaritan Center at 3650
41st St., Vero Beach, in
memory of Betty Egan.

Rants & Raves
From page A6 .


I have many Christian
friends who send me
Chanukah cards and I'm
impressed with their
thoughtfulness. I have
many who send me
"Happy Holiday" cards to
be sensitive to the fact
that they know I celebrate
a different holiday than
they do.
And then there are those
who unthinkingly send a
Merry Christmas card,
and I take it in the spirit it
is meant. But those who


disagree ought to try put-
ting themselves in the
shoes of people of other
religions and stop and
think how would they feel
if people automatically
wished them a happy
Chanukah or a peaceful
Ramadan?
The world is getting
smaller all the time and
we need to learn more and
be sensitive to other peo-
ple.
When in doubt, "Happy
Holidays" is alwhvays safe.


Christmas concerns
In this Christmas season,
there are those who don't
want to offend those who
are not Christian.
Our country was found-
ed on Christian beliefs.
Those who cannot tolerate
the observance of most of
the nation should go where
Muslim, or that of the Jew-
ish faith is predominant.
It's unfortunate that
merchants feel it is neces-

Some of the expressions
of the Christmas season
have spilled into the work-
place. I've had a personal
experience with
a Jewish boss who would
not allow Christmas orna-
ments in our personal

A menorah wouldn't

too offensive.

TRAVEL


Inspiration, sights in Jerusalem, Bethlehem


started going to Jerusalem
in 1994 and I've never
stopped going.
It's my favorite city in the
world and I fell in love with it
immediately.
It was easier getting around
Jerusalem then, but once the
2000 Intifada began every-
thing changed. You had to be
very careful, but I still never
stopped going, even when
few tourists walked the
streets and the hotels were
nearly empty. I felt safe, but
the sadness was palpable.
Everyone wanted peace, but
the question was and still is,
how to achieve it.
Today, times are better and
Jerusalem is having a
resurgence of tourism. It's a
great place to experience
history, culture and spirituali-
ty, but for me it's the cross-
cultural mix that's so dynam-
ic. It means people don't
always get along, but that's
often been Jerusalem's story.
It's a work in progress and
when I'm there I feel part of
it.

Whenever I go, I try to stay
at the historic Mount Zion
Hotel, just a brief walk from
Jerusalem's Old City. I.hope
for a room with a balcony
overlooking the ancient city
walls, which are lit up at
night. In the morning I wait
for the sunrise over the
Judean Hills and Mount of
Olives. Then my day begins
with a huge kosher breakfast
and a quick walk to Zion
Gate.
The Old City is surrounded
by high walls erected by
Sulieman, in 1537 A.D. with
eight gates for entering. It's
fun to take the Rampart's
walking tour atop the walls
for a great view.
My first stop is traditionally
at Mary's Church of Dormi-
tion. It's a beautiful place
honoring Mary's eternal rest,
with a daily service for peace.:
There's also a fine gift shop
and a tearoom serving great
cocoa for those windy
Jerusalem days.
From there, I often walk to
King David's Tomb or the site
of the Last Supper.
Next, I enter the Jewish
quarter and the cardo, once a
Roman marketplace. I pass

synagogues, underground
archeological museums,
upscale shops, delicious
bakeries and my friend,
Buddy's deli for a sandwich
or some chicken soup. After
lunch, I'm off to the Wailing
Wall, leaving my prayers for
peace, written on tiny scraps
of paper and placed in the
cracks of the wall with other
prayers. At the base of King
Solomon's Temple, there's a
new museum about the site
and tourists are encouraged
to explore the ancient ruins.
From the WailingWall, I
like to visit the Temple

Mount, ElAqsa Mosque and
the beautiful Dome of the
,Rock. During the Intifada, the
site was closed to non-
Muslims, but now it's opened
again, another sign of
progress.
Next, I walk into the Arab
quarter where everything
under the sun is sold. On my
way, I pass the Stations of the
Cross, marking the path Jesus
took before his crucifixion.
Then I'm off to the Church of
St. Anne, a lovely place
dedicated to Mary's mother.
The acoustics of the church
are perfect, so visitors are
invited to sing anytime.
Beautiful gardens and
ancient ruins surround the
church. It's thought Jesus
performed many miracles
here.
Then I head to the Christ-
ian quarter and the Church of
the Holy Sepluchre, marking
Jesus' burial place. As you
near the church you can buy
religious items, including
candles, incense and icons.
If you continue walking
through the winding streets
you'll eventually come to the
Armenian quarter with its
colorful bazaars. Located
here is my friend, Basim's
spice shop. I love to sit and
have a cup of tea with him,
taking in all the sights and
smells of his wares.
Then as I exit the labyrinth
of the Old City, I head
towards Jaffa Gate. Suddenly,
I'm at the Citadel of David
Museum. It's a fascinating
place, dedicated to Jerusalem
and its endless history of
conquests.
On my last trip to
Jerusalem, I was walking back
to the hotel when I ran into.
Charlie (a part-time bar-
tender and guide). He told
me Bethlehem had just been
opened up to tourists again'
and did I want to go? Of
course!
So heading through
endless checkpoints the next
day, we drove into the
"Palestinian city of Bethlehem,
arriving at the Church of the
Nativity. I hadn't been there
since 1994, but I was thrilled
to return and knew it signi-
fied progress. Many Palestini-
ans thanked me for coming
and hoped that others would
follow soon.
That's the thing about cities
such as Jerusalem and
Bethlehem. They endure
through the best and worst of
times. Luckily, times are
better now and tourism is
increasing. I'm hoping to
return this spring and who
knows, maybe 2008 will be a
year for real peace.

needed it. And the SBA,
which also manages the
$137 billion state pension
fund, was put in charge of
the local government
investments.
Clients use the fund like a
money-market account,
accepting certain with-
drawal restrictions for a
higher return.
Fund managers opted to
boost the amount of money
the fund paid out, so they
switched to higher-risk
investments, which were
rocked by nationwide sub-
prime mortgage meltdown.
Earlier this fall, the state
downgraded several hold-
ings in the investment pool.
By Nov. 29, when the
weeklong freeze took effect,
local governments had
withdrawn $10 billion from
the pool.
Soon, reports of the trou-
bled investments began to
reach investing agencies
and the stampede began.
Now, local finance offi-
cials are receiving several
updates per week about the
health of the fund.
"Obviously we're con-
cerned," Mr. Degutis said.
"But we're in confident in
the SBA."

Beachland Elementary students, their mothers and school faculty, love their 'mini' turtle

Students raise money with turtles


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

VERO BEACH The stu-
dents at Beachland Elemen-
tary School, encouraged to
begin the New Year in good
physical and mental health,
are out to prove they can do
that while simultaneously
raising money for the Mental
Health Association between
now and February by partici-
pating in TurtleTrax 2008
"Opening Doors/Changing
Lives."
"Mini Turtles," exact replicas
of the 6-foot variety seen
throughout Vero Beach, stand
approximately 5 inches high
from the bottom to the top
flipper.


The "minis" are currently
being sold for $20 each. The
turtles, which are solid white
forms, can be decorated with
acrylic paints and are ideal
stocking stuffers for young
and old this holiday season.
The fundraising team, along
with Beachland Physical Edu-
cation Coach, and teacher of
the year, Vickide Fielder, are
planning a "mini" TurtleTrek
to be held on the grounds of
Beachland Elementary on
Monday, Jan. 28.
Each walker will contribute
bags of loose change to walk,
although every student gets to
walk whether or not they con-
tribute the change, and raise
interest for the MHA Turtle-
Trek to be held at Riverside


Park on Feb. 23.
Organizers hope the "mini"
TurtleTrek will encourage
Beachland Elementary par-
ents to walk with their chil-
dren and other community
members in February.
If their efforts are successful,
Beachland Elementary will
receive one of the popular 6-
foot fiberglass turtles from the
MHA to paint and call their
own.
This turtle sculpture will be
placed permanently on the
grounds of the school.
The "mini" turtles are avail-
able by calling (772) 643-5775,
by visiting Kemp's Shoe Salon
on Ocean Drive or at the Indi-
an River Animal Hospital by
calling (772) 567-4324.

Planning and Zoning Com-
mission meeting. Develop-
ers wanted to give county
staff more time to review the
proposal.
Joe Paladin, a planning
consultant on the Wild
Turkey Estates project,
opposed the moratorium,
saying it could hurt eco-
nomic development.
"I think a moratorium
gives you a false sense of
security that something is
going to happen, or not
going to happen," he said.
Sebastian Councilwoman
Dale Simchick said using
economic development as a
justification to compromise
"health, safety and welfare is
a bad excuse"


Other speakers, including
county Agricultural Advisory
Committee Chairman Bob
Adair, said proposed mines
could cause groundwater to
evaporate or contaminate the
Floridan Aquifer.


Planning Commissioner
Craig Fletcher said excep-
tions for building construc-
tion should be allowed. But
proposed mines should be
banned: "I want a complete,
bloody moratorium," he said.

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker

Week of 12-21-2007

Aries-March 21-April 19
Aries, your good-heartedness and posi-
tive, uplifting attitude is a wonderful
inspiration to those around you as the
holiday season progresses. You give
others hope. You have a high heart.
Your energy is amazing. You always
know the right thing to say at the right
time. Your old-fashioned, time- hon-
ored values are the best gifts you have
to give.
Taurus-April 20-May 20
The moon in Taurus gives you an emo-
tional edge this week. Move that dream
in your heart forward a little. The uni-
verse will bless the effort and multiply
it. Take action on your desires. Your
power of judgment is strong. Your
biggest challenge is limiting your choic-
es. It's better to do one or two things


ing to celebrate the Grand
Opening of the Buffet and
to bestow good luck and
great fortune to Chef Lin
and his new restaurant.
Legend has that the
dance was once performed
to ward off great lions that


were terrifying a village.
The villagers dressed them-
selves in wildly colored cos-
tumes and using drums,
fireworks, gongs and clang-
ing cymbals drove the lions
back into the brush, never
to bother them again.


well than leave a dozen half-baked.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your power of communication is strong,
as usual. Commitments from others are
taking longer than expected. Don't
panic. Be patient. You have come too
far to give up or turn back. Have faith in
the universe and yourself and soon you
will begin to see others coming around.
Now all is well.
Cancer-June 22-July 22
You have grown a lot this year emotion-
ally and spiritually. It's like you have
been reborn. You are such a giver. You
have so much love to share. You have a
guardian angel on your shoulder. When
it seems like all is lost, somehow you
pull it out and make things happen. The
main reason is you never give up.
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Financially and personally, 2008 will be
a good year for you. Venus is in harmo-
ny with you right now. Do what you
love. The harmonic blending of energy
in Leo will bring much happiness.
Donate an hour or two a week to a
charitable cause. In the giving, we
receive back tenfold. You have so much
to give.
Virgo-Aug.23-Sept.22
Your positive energy is returning. You
have much inner strength. Your opin-
ions and views will soon be in great

because of your sound judgment. You
are called middle earth in the zodiac.
You are grounded, strong and loving.
No sign has more good qualities than
you. Great job.
Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Say this out loud each morning upon
awakening. "Today I give thanks for the
gift and spirit of life that lives within me
and sustains me. I have all that I need
to live a peaceful, healthy and happy
life. I affirm positive expectations and
positive results are my reward. I am
excited about this day and will live it to
the fullest"
Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your loving attitude is contagious. It is
hard to say "no" to you when you want
something. Your power of expression is
working well, whether written, spoken
or creative. Venus in Scorpio intensifies
the passion. When your heart is in a
project, there is little on earth that can
keep you from making it happen. Keep
the spirit strong.
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You have many fine new ideas. Place
the fun things at the top of the list. You
are happier, healthier and wiser when
you have this perspective. You are the
archer. You must also always have a

A prolific author,
Beschloss' latest book is
Presidential Courage: Brave
Leaders and How They
Changed America, 1789-
1989. It is his assertion that
what makes a great Ameri-
can president is an individ-
ual with "presidential
courage" someone will-
ing to take a political risk
that could even end a career
and the willingness and wis-
dom to do it nonetheless for
reasons that future genera-
tions of Americans will
admire.
His book delves into presi-
dents from George Washing-
ton to Ronald Reagan and
how they dealt with issues of
war and peace, human
rights, domestic issues and
the balance between gov-
ernment and business.
Mr. Beschloss examines
the outstanding traits of
these past presidents and
then compares them to
present presidential candi-
dates.
With a performance
timed at the beginning of a
presidential election year,
Mr. Beschloss' address will
surely give his audience rare
insights into what consti-
tutes a good presidential
leader and how to find
those qualities in today's
leaders.
He notes that qualities of
fine political leadership
lend themselves well to


2008. The exhibit is free and
open to the public.
Fifty photographic prints are
displayed and are the works of
photo club members as well as
non-members, who are both
amateur and professional
photographers.
Pictures. are grouped into
categories, which include:
people, nature-flora, nature-
fauna, scapes, still life, special
techniques and open.
The works were selected by
a jury panel consisting of
Louis Cizek, retired profes-
sional photographer and pho-
tography instructor at the
museum; Marilyn cook, pho-
tography professor at Brevard
Community College and
James Mason, photographer
and Graphic Design and Digi-
tal Media professor at Indian
River Community College.

more effective business
leadership by those who
manage, lead and inspire.
A natural storyteller, Mr.
Beschloss captivates his
audiences with colorful and
little-known anecdotes
about past and present
leaders and their respective
leadership styles.
These tales are some-
times inspiring, sometimes
tragic and sometimes
humorous. From his studies
and discussions with presi-
dents, Supreme Court jus-
tices, congressmen and
diplomats, Mr. Beschloss -
a 25-year resident of Wash-
ington, D.C. -- offers his
audience a behind-the-
scenes glimpse of personal-
ities and developments that
may soon impact the lives
of every American.
The importance and
timeliness of Mr. Beschloss'
address could not be more
fortuitous for Vero Beach
area residents.
The cost for a single ticket
is $60 and a series subscrip-
tion for all four speakers
(which will include Cokie
Roberts, Jane Goodall and
David Gergen) is $200. Tick-
ets are on sale until Jan. 12.
The Emerson Center is
located at 1590 27th Ave. on

SEBASTIAN -Try asking
anyone about the Prism
Concert held annually at
Sebastian River High School
and you will get twvo basic
responses. Either you'll be
asked in return, the "Prison"
concert? Or you will receive
an all-knowing "response
from One who has attended
one or at least has heard all'
about it. Again this year the
estimated 330 performers
did not disappoint, with five
sold- out performances
held at the school Dec. 6,
through Dec., 9.
The 13th annual concert
encompassed the entire
music department, both
band and chorus, as well as
the auxiliary flag and dance
line that accompanied the
Marching Sharks Band. The
two-hour show was a whirl-
wind of nonstop entertain-
ment, as all of the show's
selections were delivered in
rapid-fire succession by
groups as small as a duet, to
well, about 330 closing the
show with the school's alma
mater.

contributed to the show

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer

Jernie Talles of Fort Pierce
has been singing for 'eight
years, which is pretty remark-
able since she's only 13.
The Lincoln Park Academy
student with her very own
recording contract has a new
CD called "Jernie," but she's
grounded enough to have a
back-up career in veterinary
science if singing doesn't
work out. Still, music has
always been a big part of her
life.
"We watched 'Annie" in
pre-school and I sang
"Tomorrow," she said. "When
everyone made a fuss, I start-
ed singing other things."
When she was eight, her
great-grandfather's friend
sent a tape to the "Maury
Povich Show" for a segment
on talented kids and she
appeared, singing "Proud
Mary."
"It was cool, but very hec-
tic," she said. "Twenty min-
utes before I went on, they
told me I had to sing with the
band. I had never sung with


the band before."
The young singer's name is
a combination of the names
of her parents, Jennifer and
Bernie, but she lives with her
mom, a single parent.
Finding a balance between
performing and being a kid
was not always easy. Some-
times she found herself com-
mitted to things she didn't
really want to do. Jennifer
Talles takes responsibility for
that.
"In the very beginning, I
said yes to everybody," she
said. "I was so excited. One
day we talked and I asked her
if she wanted to do it. Now, if
she doesn't want to, we're not
going to do it."
Jernie echoes the sentiment
and says that she likes to do
kid things like play volleyball
and soccer.
This year, she performed in
the Lincoln Park production
of "Cinderella" in the chorus,
which she considers as
important as having a star-
ring role.
She's excited about having a,
record contract with inde-
pendent label Mirrome


Records, but says that she
didn't realize the importance
of it right away.
"When I went to Nashville
and started recording, it hit
me," she said. "Everybody
wants to have a contract. I'm
so lucky. It's really a blessing."
, Rod Carter, president of
Mirrome, signed Jernie, who
was then 12, to a four-record
deal because he believes she
has a unique talent.
"She's talented far beyond
her years," he said. "She's
focused and her desire to go
into music is not because
she's being pushed. We're
slow-walking her right now
because we expect her to
have a long career. We've set
up a trust fund and her con-
tract was approved by the
courts. We have long-range
plans but we're not discour-
aging her own goals. She goes
from being an entertainer to
being a kid. She's well-
grounded."
One of the songs on the CD
"Mama's Little Girl," is the sin-
gle that's out right now and it's
popular outside the United
States, including places like,
Japan.
She didn't write the songs
on this CD, but she is begin-
ning to experiment with
song-writing. She admires
LeAnn Rimes, who started
performing at her age, has


grown and still has her head
on straight.
To that end, she and her
mom are discussing where
she'll go to high school. Lin-
coln Park Academy has an
excellent music and drama
department, but Westwood
has a. good veterinary and
animal science program and
a football team. She wants to
prepare for college ,nd be
able to go to pep rallies, too.
"I'm definitely going to col-
lege," she said. "I told my
record label that I'm going to
school. It's my dream.. I still
want to be smart and go to
college. If I don't sing any-
more, you can't do anything
without a college degree,"
Jennifer Talles wonders, as
all parents do, if she's made
the right choices for her
daughter. When you ask
Jernie for the person shemost
admires, you know her mom's
done something's right.
"My mom is a single parent
.who works two jobs," she
says. "She helps, keep me
grounded. She's very-protec-
tive. In the end, I know I'll
thank her for helping me this
way. She's my idol." '

A blessed, flavorful Christmas


wish sent to all readers


Hello, smart shoppers.
This is the last
column before
Christmas.
For my Jewish readers,
belated Hanukkah wishes.
For Christmas dinner, I
never repeat the turkey
dinner. Recipes I have given
for rib roast, lamb, lasagna,
etc., are great choices. TWo
more dinner suggestions:
fresh andVirginia-style ham.
Everyone knows about
smoked ham, but not too
many people are familiar
with fresh ham, which is
simply a ham that has not
been smoked or cured. It is
less expensive than loin of
pork, lean and delicious.
When it comes to Virginia
ham, none, not even the
spiral sliced, can compare
with my late husband's
recipe. Smoked hams are
many times about $1 a
pound. If you buy half a
ham, buy a shank half. You
can have it boned, but I
prefer it bone in.
Bruschetto is a superb
appetizer and since I use my
recipe for Tomatoes Ore-
ganata you must also have
that recipe. The tomatoes
must be red, ripe and kissed
with sunshine. The only way
you can get great tomatoes
is to buy them from a
vegetable stand or grow
them yourself.
Have a blessed Christmas
and remember what you are
celebrating.

TOMATOES
OREGANATA
SERVES 4
3 large ripe tomatoes
Chopped parsley, fresh or
dried
Oregano
2 cloves finely minced
garlic, jarred garlic or
garlic powder
Black pepper
3 tablespoons olive or
canola oil


2 tablespoons water
Slice tomatoes 1/4-inch
thick and place side by side
in a dish or container at least
1-inch deep. Do one layer at
a time. Sprinkle slices with
seasonings; layer remaining
slices. Drizzle with oil and
water. Turn slices to coat
evenly. Cover and refrigerate
at least 2 hours. Serve cold.

BRUSCHETTO
You can reduce the
saturated fat by your choice
of mozzarella. Each person
is served one slice of bread.
Judge accordingly.
1 recipe Tomatoes
Oreganata
1 loaf Italian bread
2 cloves garlic, finely
minced, jarred garlic or
garlic powder
Mozzarella, sliced thin
Fresh parsley and fresh
basil, chopped
Olive oil
Slice bread in 1/2-inch
thick slices. Brush with oil
and garlic. Broil until
golden. Top with a slice of
mozzarella and a slice of
tomato. Sprinkle with
chopped fresh basil and
parsley. Drizzle lightly with
oil; serve immediately.

FRESH HAM
SERVES 10 OR MORE
For half a ham, buy the
shank half. Ask the butcher
to bone and tie it. Save the
bone for a special occasion
spaghetti sauce; it adds great
flavor.
If you have all of the skin
and most of the fat trimmed
you will have a wonderful
lean roast pork.
For a special treat, have
the butcher bone the meat
and leave the skin (rind) on.
The rind will become crisp
and delicious, but remem-


ARLENE BORG
Romancing the Stove
with the Grammy Guru

ber, it's loaded with fat.
The recipe gives directions
with the rind, but will also
work without the rind.
7 pound shank half fresh
ham
Garlic powder
Salt and pepper
Score the rind with a
sharp knife. Sprinkle meat
with salt, pepper and garlic
powder. Place on a rack in
roasting pan. Roast at 325
degrees for 35 minutes a
pound.
Meat juices should run
clear, not pink. Remove
meat to serving platter, de-
fat juices and prepare gravy
according to recipe in
previous columns. Remove
the rind and cut up with
scissors.
Carve the meat in thin


slices. Serve with apple-
sauce.

HONEY'S BAKED
VIRGINIA HAM
SERVES 8-10
7-9 pound shank hIlf
smoked ham
3 heaping tablespoons
dark brown sugar
1 rounded teaspoon dry
mustard
Large aluminum foil
1 cup molasses,
unsulfured
Whole cloves
1 large can sliced
pineapple
Maraschino cherries,
optional
Trim visible fat from meat,
leaving a thin layer on top.
Score top of meat. Mix sugar
and mustard together; rub
over ham. Dot with cloves.
Do not salt.
Cut a piece of foil large
enough to encase the ham.
Place foil in roasting pan,
center ham. Pour on the
molasses and the juice from
the pineapple. Bring the
ends of the foil up and
encase the ham, folding foil
loosely at top so,steam can
escape. Bake at 325 degrees
for 30 minutes per pound.

done, open foil and, using

Get holiday color from unusual plants


n the past several
columns, I have been
talking about all sorts of
plants that are popular
during the holidays.
Today I am going to talk
about a couple that just
don't seem to have as much
fame. Although you may
find these varieties a bit
harder to locate locally, they
are available at some
specialty garden centers.

Cyclamen
The blossoms of the
cyclamen twist and turn
almost like the small wings
of a butterfly. The foliage has
a distinct silvery, marbleized
coloring that makes this
plant unique. These plants
are quite beautiful, but they
do require a lot of care to
stay healthy. The most
important criteria for
success are temperature and
moisture.
Cyclamen require low
temperatures in order to
thrive for any length of time.
You must keep them out of
the warm outdoor tempera-
tures and keep them in an
area of your house that is


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

cool. This is tricky, because
at the same time, they also
must be in an area that has
ample light.
Cyclamen also are finicky
about watering. They need
to be watered daily so the
soil is evenly moist. Always
water your cyclamen by
wetting the soil and not the
plant. Watering the foliage
can cause the plant to rot
and die.
Since the plants like
humidity, placing them on a
tray filled with pebbles and
water will provide the


moisture they need. Feed
your plants monthly with a
liquid plant food designed
for house plants.

Anthurium
This plant makes a really
nice holiday table decora-
tion. It can grow in the most
diverse habitats and do
really well in our hot tropical
climate. Unlike the delicate
cyclamen, these plants will
serve well as both a holiday
table decoration and as an
outside potted plant.
These plants are native to
Hawaii and South America.
They are also readily
available at most local
garden centers.
Anthurium are relatively
easy to care for and enjoy.
They have very attractive
foliage and can produce
flowers almost year round.
They prefer a growing
medium that is coarse and
well drained. The best
mixture is a composite of
peat moss, pine bark and
perlite. These plants like to
be watered completely and
then allowed to dry slightly
before watering again.


Anthuriums will grow
indoors or out, and will do
well in very bright locations.
I have had tremendous luck
with my plants under the
protected overhang of my
front porch.
They also require regular
fertilization in order to keep
their lush green foliage and
colorful flowers. Fertilize
using a slow release fertilizer
such as Osmokote for
indoor plants.
Although I have never had
any pest problems with my
plants, they are susceptible
to the usual indoor pests
such as scale, mealy bugs
and aphids.
If problems arise, use a
plant insecticide that is
designed for indoor plants
and be sure to spray all parts
of the plant, especially
under the leaves.

Susan Ragsdale led the group
of 250 through an intense,
three-day process of sifting.
through potential problems
and creating plans to solve
them.
"It was a very intense meet-
ing," said Indian River County
4-H Agent Adam'Cletzer. "At
one point, I was completely
covered in sticky notes."
The issues addressed were
as varied and diverse as the
youth who attended the con-
ference. Nine states were rep-
resented.
In the greater 4-H District
XI area, which encompasses
much of the Treasure Coast, a
group of- 4-H teens has
derived its own anti-obesity
curriculum from the state's
and has begun teaching in
elementary schools.

member. "The health pro-

Everyone should learn about


magic formula for success


T ou are unique in all of
creation. You are one-
I of-a- kind. Anything
this rare means you have
great value in the world.
You were born with a
special set of gifts, talents,
promise and potential, like
no one who has ever lived or
ever will. You may carry
through your genes certain
family characteristics or
traits. You may, depending
on the age of your soul, lean
toward science, art or
philosophy.
Going inside, getting on
the soul and heart path,
finding your true purpose in
life, bringing it out and
setting it free is my greatest
wish for you. The journey
starts when we begin to
make a personal friend of
our higher spiritual self and
ask it to help us fulfill our
mission in life.
There are seven major
musical notes. Millions of
tunes, each different and
distinguishable, have been
composed from these seven
sounds. There are seven
colors in the rainbow. From
these, a vast multitude of

your desire to do something
great with your life, no
matter what earthly, real or

have let get in the way. Every
one of us is born with vast

Many people say to me, "I
don't have any artistic

Take an inventory of these
spiritual gifts in your life.
How much love, peace,
health, abundance, faith,
creativity and happiness
lives in your heart and soul?
It's never too late to start
increasing these in your life.
If you have let the world
pull you outside yourself,

choice, too. But there is a far
greater way to live. It all
comes down to the choices
we make and what we feed.
The supreme principle of
life is "like attracts like."
What we feed wants to grow
and increase. This is the
promise. There is a way out
of the jungle of pain,
hardship, lack and suffering.
It begins when we surrender
our lower will and ego to the

us and through us and help
us to find freedom over life.

own self and increasing our
own worth.
How can you love some-
one else consistently if you
don't love, respect and
honor your own life first?
Some people ask me, '
"Isn't it selfish if I put myself
first?" My answer: "Is the
sun selfish for being the
center of our solar system?"
The key to happiness is to
create a personal relation-
ship with spirit through,
prayer, meditation, affirma-
tion or inspirational reading
and study. Then let this
unconditional love pour out
and fill your heart and soul.
Learn to love yourself. Now
when you go to the world
and others you are giving


from abundance rather
than lack.
You can do it. It's inside
you right now yearning to
be set free. Now you are
working the magic formula
for success. Take care of
your own and family needs
first. Then give back to your
spirit guides and others who
encouraged and inspired
you along the way. You are
now the light. Pass the torch
of freedom to the next
generation. Keep the light of
truth alive and well.
Yours is a great life well
lived.
The sweetest news is the
best is yet to come.

Two area soccer


teams kick it to


next level


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
Something had to give.
The St. Lucie West Cen-
tennial and St. Edward's
girls' soccer teams both
came into their Nov. 30
encounter undefeated. The
Eagles had registered nine
shutouts in a row en route to
a 9-0-1 record.
The Pirates brought an
impressive mark as well,
going 5-0-1 to open the sea-
son.
Unlike most matchups
that fail to live up to the
hype, the contest gave
ample evidence as to why
both schools are contenders
for a state title, as St.
Edward's outlasted Centen-
nial 1-0.
"that was one of the most
intense games I've ever
played in my life," St.
Edward's striker Aubrey
Greene said. "We all played
our hearts out.
"It was a great feeling. We
knew we beat a great team."
.,Greene is one of the rea-
sons why the Pirates remain
the lone area team without a
loss. The junior has scored
25 goals, including three
during Saint Edward's
match against win over
Merritt Island Christian. It
was a 4-2 decision The vic-
tory put Saint. Edward's at 9-
0-2 overall and 4-0-1 in Dis-
trict 12-1A.
Saint Edward's record now
stands at 10-1-2 after its first
loss to Edgewood High
School last Friday evening.
Currently, "It's been a
great season," Greene said.
"I'm just so happy."
On the contrary, most
opposing coaches have
been less than thrilled to see
Greene on the field. She has
excelled throughout the
season, as evidenced by her
consistent play. After being
held ;corele'-s in St.a
S 'EdWard's 1-1 tie with state
power Orangewood Christ-
ian, Greene had two goals in
the Pirates first win of the
season, a 7-0 blanking of
Florida Air Academy.
She scored three more
and added two assists, as St.
'Edward's tallied another
shutout, this time an 8-0
W in over First Academy.
"She's very confident with
the ball," Saint Edward's
coach, Jeff Lamscha said.
"She's a classic striker she
thinks of finishing the goal."
Greene continued her tor-
rid pace with a then season-
high four goals, as well as an
assist in the team's 5-0 win
over Holy Trinity Episcopal.
"I work really well with the
team," Greene said. "I'm just
enjoying it. I've having a lot
of fun.
"This is the best combina-
tion of girls I've ever played
with."
The good times continued
as Greene scored three more
goals while adding an assist
in the team's 6-0 victory over
Summit Christian. The win


moved St. Edward's to 4-0-1
on the season.
In a season already
becoming filled with magi-
cal moments, Greene -
who had 19 goals last season
- had perhaps her defining
game of the young cam-
paign. Taking on Merritt
Island Christian at home,
the 17-year-old scored five
times while assisting on
another in the Pirates' 9-2
win.
"She's fearless," Lamscha
said. "She's not afraid to take
on people one on one."
While not as seasoned as
Greene, Katlyn Snow has
played a major role in Cen-
tennial's fast start out of the
gate. She scored a goal in the
Eagles' 7-0 win over Palm
Beach Gardens to improve
to 4-0-1.
"I didn't play over the
summer," Snow said. "I did-
n't think I'd get back (on
track) so fast."
The junior led all scorers
with two goals, as Centenni-
al pitched its nine consecu-
tive shutout, winning 13-0
over Palm Beach Lakes. The
victory gave the Eagles the
best start in the program's
10-year history.
"I was hoping for it," Snow
said. "When it first started, I
was kind of nervous. I'm
very happy how it's turned
out.
"I thought we could do it."
Like the rest of her team-
mates, Snow was under-
standably disappointed to
see the team's winning
streak stop with the loss to
St. Edward's.
"It was very frustrating,"
Snow said. "They scored off
a free kick. Everyone was
upset since it was our first
loss."
Snow and her teammates
quickly rebounded, shutting
out an up-and-coming Sebas-
tian River team 4-0. The 16-
year-old had a goal in the
much-needed win.

The unbeaten Saint Edward's girl's varsity soccer team
took on the Edgewood High School girls last Friday
evening at home. After a hard fought match on a soggy
field, the Edgewood girls managed to edge out the Pirates
1-0. Saint Edwards' (No. 1) Aubrey Green was guarded by
Edgewood's Kate Bard (No. 9) late in the second half and
just missed scoring for the Pirates.

"It doesn't matter if we
lose," Snow said. "Our team
gets through everything.. Our
team is strong enough."
"We just keep our hopes
up. There are other teams out
there that are probably better
than us so we just try harder.
The team's work ethic
seems without question, as


its mark of 12-1-2 will attest.
"We bond really well,"
Snow said. "The team
encourages each other.
"I've had good games and
I've had off games, but it's
the team that helps me."
Greene feels the same
way, looking to her team-
mates for support, especial-


ly her sister senior Lyndal.
"I've been playing with
her since I was 5," Greene
said. "I don't know what
I'm going to next year
when she leaves.
"My teammates have all
been sisters. They've all
been there for me."
