Conflict,



compromise



define 2007


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
In 2007, a new form of
government never made it'
off the drawing board.
Indian River County tus-
sled with its largest
landowner. Vero Beach
squared off against two
other cities in its bid to
land Piper Aircraft. And
political candidates lined
up for a' showdown that
was almost 12 months dis-
tant.
Conflict defined 2007,
but so did compromise.
A fractious growth
debate yielded to new dia-
logue about expansion.
Cities earmarked contri-
butions for economic
development. And the No.
2 choice for schools super-
intendent became the
consensus candidate.
Together, this list marks
the 10 most significant
events and issues that
shaped Vero Beach and
Indian River County in
2007 and details con-
cerns that will define
much of 2008.

Piper circles, and
leaders hope for
smooth landing
From the cheap seats,
the July 30 match-up
between the Vero Beach'
Devil Rays and the Jupiter
Hammerheads looked
routine.
Fans jostled in the sticky


heat, waiting for tall cups
of beer. Squeeze, the Devil
Rays mascot, flailed the
Chicken Dance at the bot-
tom of the fifth.
But tickets were free, and
instead of ball caps, many
members of the record-
setting crowd that filled
Holman Stadium wore red
Piper Aircraft T-shirts and
fanned .themselves with
handbills that urged fans
to "Step up to the plate for
Piper."
On Piper Appreciation
Night, the effort to retain
the aircraft maker drew
3,629 people to Holman
Stadium part.of a year-
long effort to retain the
largest private employer in
Indian River County.
Under an agreement
approved by the County
Commission last month,
Piper would be offered $12
million during a three-
year period. State eco-
nomic development offi-
cials pledged an
additional $20 million.
Officials from four Indian
River County municipali-
ties agreed to contribute
to the incentive package
as well.
Albuquerque, N.M., and
Oklahoma City are also
wooing Piper. The aircraft
manufacturer employs
about 1,000 people at its
Vero Beach campus.
Offers to Piper evolved
since the first incentive
package was unveiled in
May. The initial offer, val-

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
--Kay Clem, who has served
as supervisor of elections for
11 years, will face at least one
challenger on the 2008 bal-
lot: Republican Gary Griffin,
a Fellsmere resident who
entered the race earlier this
month.
Republicans will choose a
candidate for supervisor of
elections in the Aug. 26 pri-
mary election.


First elected in 1996, Mrs.
Clem has faced few electoral
challengers. Mr. Griffin, 58,
said he entered the race to
give voters an alternative,
Mr. Griffin said his experi-
ence as a city employee had
taught him about the way
government functions.
During the Vietnam War,
Mr. Griffin served in the U.S.
Navy, rigging parachutes
aboard the U.S.S. Hancock,
an aircraft carrier.
:He earned an accounting
degree at Indian River Com-


munity College and a man-
agement degree from the
University of West Florida.
He has lived in Indian River
County since 1985.
Mrs. Clem, 54, said she
plans to file campaign
paperwork in early January.
If elected, Mr. Griffin, a
former city-employed main-
tenance carpenter for Vero
Beach, said he would keep
most of the Supervisor of
Elections Office staff on
board.
"I would draw on their


expertise," he said.
But switching to touch-
screen voting technology
was probably a mistake, Mr.
Griffin said.
"When they [the state]
called for a paper trail, we
couldn't produce one," he
said.
Gov. Charlie Crist and the
Legislature mandated paper
ballots for all Florida coun-
ties earlier this year.
Since the disputed 2000
presidential election, Indian
River County has switched


from punch-card ballots to
touch-screen terminals to
optical scanners that read
hand-marked ballots. The
optical scanners will be
rolled out beginning with the
August primary.
"Since 2000, we've come
through unscathed, and I'm
very proud of that," Mrs.
Clem said, adding that her
past service with the Legisla-
ture and Florida Republican
Party were strengths.

VERO BEACH Virginia
Jordan tried to ignore the
sharp pain between her
shoulder blades and forge
through the Bible study
class she was teaching one
Sunday morning in Octo-
ber.
As she talked about Christ
and forgiveness, the pain
grew more intense. Eventu-
ally, she told fellow church-
goers, who urged Mrs. Jor-
dan, 79, to seek treatment.
When she arrived at Indi-
an River/ Medical Center,
her blood pressure was ele-


vated. A CT scan later
revealed an aneurysm on
an artery inside her
abdomen.
By Tuesday evening, the
aneurysm started to leak.
Dr. Cary Stowe, IRMC's
medical director of cardio-
vascular surgery, called
back his team for emer-
gency surgery.
"I really have a lot to be
thankful for," Mrs. Jordan
said in early December.

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. I 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-froin 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.

ued at $76.5 million, was
shelved after Piper execu-
tives said a scheduled
countywide vote on the
package was causing dis-
cord.
"The referendum issue is
causing public conflict,
divisiveness and unwar-
ranted speculation in the
local community, which
was never our intention,"
company management
wrote in a July letter, pub-
lished as a full-page news-
paper advertisement.
When the County Com-
mission approved new
incentives in October, the
50-year relationship
between Piper and Vero
Beach factored into the
decision.
"We have had a long,
long history with Piper,"
County Commissioner
Sandra Bowden said
before the unanimous
vote.
But the impact of using
public money as an incen-
tive was a factor, too.
"I want this to happen
with every ounce of my
body," Mrs. Bowden told
Piper executives. "But we
have to be good business-
people just like you do."

As Dodgers plan

Dodgertown, where the
venerable Los Angeles
Dodgers are set to play a
final spring training sea-

Major League Baseball
franchise by 2009.
Since July, Joe Baird, the

Buoyed by longtime
Dodgers fans and a sellout
game against the Boston
Red Sox, Dodgertown set
an attendance record this
spring.
Attendance rose to the
fifth-highestt ever, and it
would have bested the all-

move to a new spring-

When the Dodgers leave,
six decades of accumulat-

A resolution passed by
the County Commission
Dec. 4 authorizes Mr. Baird
to negotiate an agreement
to bring a new team to
Dodgertown once the
Dodgers depart. But the
county could also muscle
the Dodgers out, by
declaring the team in

cannot anchor the
Dodgers on the East Coast

overall attendance has
been lethargic, and among
the 9,067 spectators at the
Dodgers-Red Sox match-
up, most wore Beantown

By the end of the decade,
the Dodgers will christen

Southern California and a

Dodgertown's verdant

After two rounds of inter-

Board members still had
questions.
What were the circum-
stances surrounding the
abrupt departure of one
finalist from a California


school district three years
earlier?
How would the second
finalist adapt from leading
a tough Massachusetts
district to wealthier, high-
er-performing Indian

cedures performed by the
cardiac surgery team during
its first year.
"What we're seeing is the
program gaining momen-
tum," Dr. Stowe said.
The Heart Center opened
in November 2006, the
result of seven years of
planning and a partnership
with the prestigious Duke
University Health System.
When the cardiac center
opened, the hospital esti-
mated it would handle
roughly 170 cases during its
first year.
Patients surged to The
Heart Center, topping the
estimates. Janet Longen-
berger, director of cardio-
vascular services at IRMC,
described it as "immediate
acceptance."
The presence of Dr.
Stowe, renowned in his
field, helped reassure
patients who might have
otherwise been leery of a
brand-new facility, Ms. Lon-
genberger said.
During the first year, the
cases were more complicat-
ed, and the patients older


and more ill than national
averages. Those numbers
reflected the local popula-
tion.
"We're not just operating
on a bunch of 55-year-old
executives," Dr. Stowe said.
Duke physicians were
impressed with the com-
plexity of the surgeries per-
formed during the first 12
months.
"In less than a year, Dr.
Stowe has performed 174
cardiac procedures, includ-
ing 110 coronary bypass
procedures and 56 proce-
dures involving heart valve
replacement," Dr. Peter
King, chief of cardiovascular
and thoracic surgery for the
Duke University Health Sys-
tem, wrote in a November
letter to IRMC.
"He has done this without
patient mortality, and with
complication rates that are
extremely low and superior
to the national average," Dr.
King wrote.
Duke representatives vis-
ited IRMC six times since
The Heart Center opened,
offering advice and award-


ing high marks.
"It's a continuing review
process to fine-tune our
program," Dr. Stowe said of
the visits.
In August, IRMC hired Dr.
Mark Malias, a Melbourne
cardiovascular and thoracic
surgeon. The arrival of a
second surgeon allowed the
hospital to increase its case
volume.
"Now we have roughly 12,
almost 13 months under
our belt, we have the num-
bers to show that we are
providing premier cardiac
services," Dr. Stowe said.
For 2008, Dr. Stowe set a
goal for 300 surgeries. When.
the facility reaches 400 to
500 surgeries annually, then
it will be time to hire a third
surgeon, Dr. Stowe said,
adding that such growth
would likely take several
years.
In the meantime, IRMC
and its foundation are plan-
ning a 16-bed surgical
intensive-care unit to han-
dle the influx of cardiac
patients.
In the Cardiac Step-Down
Unit, which readies patients


for surgery and later pre-
pares them to return home,
Betty Sorce, who runs the
unit, said the high volume
of patients helped staff
members earn experience.
"Everything fell into place
a lot quicker than we
thought it would," she said.
After her October surgery,
Mrs. Jordan spent weeks in
rehabilitation, first at IRMC
and later at HealthSouth
Treasure Coast Rehabilita-
tion Hospital.
Aside from some linger-
ing pain, her recovery has
been smooth. Three times
each week, a Visiting Nurse
Association caregiver stops
by her home on a tree-lined
Vero Beach street.
Mrs. Jordan's first outing
since the surgery was a trip
back to First Baptist.Church
for a holiday dinner.
Earlier that day, she
praised IRMC for establish-
ing The Heart Center and
mending the aneurysm that
could have ended her life.
"If it had ruptured," Mrs.
Jordan said, "I would have
had four heartbeats left."

Florida Forever eyes Indian River Lagoon
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A statewide panel that ranks
conservation efforts elevated the status of 21 projects last
week, recommending that a preservation effort along the
Indian River Lagoon should move ahead.
The state Acquisition and Restoration Council voted to
focus remaining Florida Forever preservation funding on
projects with the most immediate need for natural and cul-
tural preservation.
"The council's vote is a significant step in our progress
with the largest program of its kind in the United States,
protecting more than 2.3 million acres of land in perpetu-
ity," Department of Environmental Protect Secretary
Michael Sole said in a news release. "The Florida Forever
program and its predecessor programs have been extreme-
ly successful in preserving and protecting our state's beauti-
ful environment."
With the Indian River Lagoon Blueway program, the state
aims to preserve sensitive lands in the six counties that bor-
der the 156-mile estuary.
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.
With a 5-0 vote earlier this month, the County Commis-
sion asked the state to give the project the highest ranking
on its acquisition list, meaning that the land would be pur-
chased entirely with state money.
The 10-year, $3 billion Florida Forever program was
established by the Legislature in 1999 to conserves environ-
mentally sensitive land; restore and protects waterways
and drinking water supplies; preserve cultural and histori-
cal resources; and provides outdoor recreation opportuni-
ties such as hiking, hunting and nature study

Indian River sex suspect
caught in South Carolina
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Deputies in Pickens County,
S.C., arrested a South Carolina man earlier this month, who
was wanted in Florida for a sexual offense involving a child.
MichaelAlan Gore, 34, of 213 Erin Lane, Pickens, S.C., was
arrested Dec. 12. He faces charges of sexual battery on a
child under 12. He is being held without bond at the Pick-
ens County Detention Center, pending extradition to Flori-
da.
According to the case report, the sexual battery occurred
on Dec. 3,2003.
South Carolina authorities said Mr. Gore had been on the
run for four years, since an arrest warrant was issued in
Indian River County.
Shutter scam defendant

INDIAN RIVER.COUNTY A Palm Bay man wanted in
Indian River County on two felony charges related to a hur-

Andrew Fernald, whose last known address was 1433 Van

As superintendent, Mr.

education teacher, over-
sees 26 schools and 17,000
students, a task for which
he is paid $175,000 per
year.
He arrived in August

and close the achieve-

ity and white students.
During the first week of

with principals who led
him from classroom to

At Citrus Elementary
School, the superintend-
ent offered a pep talk to
school administrators.
"This county has the
opportunity to go from
good to great," he said,
adding that administra-
tors, teachers and stu-
dents would each play a.
role in improvement


efforts.
"These children want to
learn," Mr. La Cava told
the group. "I don't care if
they're white, black, His-
panic, blue, green,
orange."
There will be detractors,
too, the superintendent
acknowledged.
"Any naysayers out
there, I'll walk them
around from school to
school," he said.

River County would tackle
future growth came down
to a battle of "lite" versus
"might."
When the County Com-
mission considered
adopting charter govern-
ment in early 2007, critics
worried about cities and
towns ceding power to the
county.
Advocates said a "starter
charter," or "charter lite,"
would make few changes


to the existing system
while limiting growth. But
skeptics and opponents of
charter government wor-
ried that "charter lite"
could someday, in the
words of County Commis-
sioner Wesley Davis, turn
into "charter might."
Growth in Fellsmere,
which has annexed thou-
sands of surrounding
acres in recent years,
spurred slow-growth
advocates to pursue a
charter.
Supporters said a char-
ter would keep South
Florida-style sprawl at
bay. Opponents said it
could hamstring econom-
ic development.
At a packed May meet-
ing, County Commission-
ers listened to nine hours
of citizen remarks before
voting 3-2 to halt the char-
ter effort.
Leaders of the five Indi-
an River County munici-
palities, wary of the char-
ter government push,
instead pursued a county-
wide planning agreement.

Negotiations for the

Vick is sick

I sure hope that the Michael Vick ranter was just a feeble
joke aimed at agitating the troops.
Anyone who has taken psychology 101 has learned that
most psychopaths abused animals on their way to antiso-
cial behavior. Fortunately, 98 percent of Americans con-
demned Mr. Vicks vile dog fighting and recognized that
those who inflict pain on vulnerable animals or others that
can't defend themselves are sick. There is often a strong link
between dog fighting and drugs and other illegal activities.

Drivers, please slow down

It was on Jan. 30, 1989 that our lives were changed forever.
My niece was killed by someone going over 80 mph on
Dairy Road, in Titusville.
She was only 15 years old and she is missed each and
every day. I don't know why the driver was in such a hurry.
She is gone and he spent time in jail. I don't believe he got
up that day and thought if he broke the law and drove too
fast that it would end the life of a young girl, but still, it did.
I have a teenager and I know his friends speed without a
thought. Parents, take time to think when you are going
over the speed limit. You could be teaching a bad habit that
could take the life of your child or someone elses.

Telephone directory listings

Last week, a person complained about having to pay to
not be listed in the phone directory. I have some advice for
you and other readers. What the phone company didn't tell
you is that you can choose to be listed under whatever

name you want. You do not have to be listed under your
billing name.
I have friends who don't want their names listed and were
upset by the non-listing charge. So instead, they are listed,
but chose silly, ridiculous, made-up names.
The best part of it is that they can instantaneously spot
junk mail and marketing calls.
One friend chose a name that is virtually impossible to
pronounce. The moment they pick up the phone and hear
someone trying to pronounce the ridiculous name, they
laugh and hang-up.

Subjects or citizens?
I have long been aware of my ignorance regarding Ameri-
can history between 1880 and 1940. I recently started
studying the subject and am very confused.


After the Spanish American War, we acquired Puerto Rico
and the Philippines as territories or insular possessions.
These are referred to as "The United States of America."
Our Constitution was written for "The united States of
America." (Lower case "u")
All possessions are legally designated by a two capital-let-
ter designator; PR and PI in the above cases. The residents
are "subjects" rather than "citizens," possessing no Consti-
tutional rights.
The question I have is when we use the designator FL
rather than the abbreviation Fla. Are we giving the federal
government tacit approval to treat us as subjects rather than
as citizens?
If so, then this is a huge rant.
Editor's note: According to Wikipedia, the Philippines were
granted independence from the United States on July 4,1945.

Dear Editor,

The Scripps Press Journal
of Indian River County, in
their Nov. 7 issue, carries an
article that noted Pipers
third quarter sales/billings
for 2007, but failed to ana-
lyze the data. The Data is
listed as follows with subse-
quent analysis;
Data:
166 Piper aircraft were
deliveries and billed for the
first three quarters. Billings
for the three quarters
totaled $125 million dollars.
Analysis:
A fourth quarter linear pro-
jection based on first three
quarters aircraft produc-
tions, results in a rough esti-
mate of 224 aircraft for the
year 2007; 4.3 aircraft per


week; 18.1 aircraft per
month; 56 aircraft per
quarter, on average.
Plans for 'osprey' could
increase billings of aircraft
by 11 per year starting in
year 2011, providing the cur-
rent aircraft production rate
is sustained; and if not a low
production rate could be
anticipated, but not lower
than current rate with price
increase of new model
showing a financial growth
at least.
Plans for matrix could fol-
low the same pattern, except
starting in mid 2008. Both
aircraft 'osprey' and 'matrix'
would be filling the gap of
older products, phasing out
and being replaced by more
costly high tech aircraft fill-
ing the gap.


The 166 planes billed in the
first three quarters resulted
in $125 million dollars in
sales for the new Piper com-
pany; and projecting this lit-
erally through the fourth
quarter results in an annual
sales estimate of $167 mil-
lion for the year. This results
in average aircraft price,
selling price of $745,000.
Note that the current piper
planes sale price, is from
$400,000 per plane to $1.8
million for a 'full house of
equipment,' top of the line
Malibu series aircraft..
, This averages out to $1.1
million, which is consider-
ably higher than current
delivery average price, that
is $355,000 higher.
This simplistic indicator
highlights that the high end


'Malibu' series is not achiev-.
ing the goals and objectives
established by new Piper
company three-years ago.
It appears Piper/Kingfish
Bass locked into it and came
up with a 'bare bones' Mal-
ibu called the 'Matrix,' that
will meet the basic FAA stan-
dards.
Data put on the table,
which is minimal, by new
Piper and a Chamber of
Commerce team spearhead-
ed by Ms. Casseltime and
Mr. C. Wilson, highlights a
$500 million dollar impact
on our Indian River County
economy.
Other facts available are as
follows; $33,500 prime base
salary per employee. New
Piper employs 1,000 work-.
ers.


Now lets use this about
data as follows;
Double the prime salary to
$67,000 per year, per
employee, to cover all
employee expenses. $67,000
multiplied by 1,000 employ-
ees equals $67 million per
year. Since most aircraft,
small aircraft, are 50 percent
labor and 50 percent mate-
rial/subcontract, then
roughly $67 million covers
material and subcontrac-
tors.
Piper does not subcontract
work in Florida or Indian
River County, all labor val-
ues added work is done
wholly within Piper.
Add labor, burdened, $67
million with $67 million for
material and subcontrac-
tors, and you have a gross


cost of $134 million.
Add G&A 8.5 percent multi-
plied by $134 million and
the cost is now $145 million.
Now add an 11 percent prof-
it times that. figure rand it
equals $15.9 million and still
the cost roughly estimate is
$161 million. Now compare
this estimate based on
industry standards with the
project billing forecast for
2009; $161 million, based on
standards, $167 million on a
3.5 percent variation. Very
close, simply verification.
The Piper deal is a rush to
judgement.
Where did $500 million
value of Piper to Indian
River County come from?

Mr. Richard Martin

Land and Water Adjudica-
tory Commission, com-
prised of Gov. Charlie
Crist and the state Cabi-
net, to consider the
appeal.
Environmentalists were
concerned that the dis-
puted 1,265-acre site,
located west of Interstate
95 and south of
Fellsmere, could be
annexed into the city.
Before the water district
purchased the land for
preservation in 1999,
county officials were also
interested in setting the
land aside. In June,
County Commissioners
said the parcel should
remain as conservation
land.
A week after the Sept. 11
water district decision,
County Commissioner
Peter O'Bryan called the
act "a bad deal for the
taxpayers of Indian River
County."


New county com-
plex opens with
fanfare and relief

During hot August days,
movers hauled furniture
and unpacked boxes in
the new County Adminis-
tration Complex, a $45
million replacement for
the aging building that
once housed Indian River
County government.
Tom Frame, the county
general services director,
described the move as a
relief.
"It was all we could do to
keep the Band-Aids on
.[the old building] any-
more," he said.
Five years ago, when the
County Commission OK'd
the two-building complex,
the officials faced criti-
cism about the price tag.
Former County Commis-
sioner Caroline Ginn, who
led the team that called


for more county office
space, said the new build-
ings fulfilled the require-
ments.
"It's not a monument to
anybody, not a Taj Mahal,"
she said at the November
dedication ceremony. "It's
exactly what we asked
for."
Flanked by concrete
columns as thick as tree
trunks, officials at the
dedication said' the new
County Administration
Complex would provide
enough office space for
coming decades.
Weeks later, machinery
began clawing at the walls
of the old County Admin-
istration Building.
Once the 55-year-old
structure is gone, the five-
acre site will be land-
scaped into green space.
The parking lot will serve
as spillover parking for the
County Administration
Complex and nearby
school district offices.


The old County Admin-
istration Building opened
in 1952 as the 35-bed Indi-
an River Memorial Hospi-
tal. When the hospital left
the 25th Street location in
the late 1970s, the build,-
ing was renovated for
county and school dis-
trict offices.
But renovations could
not keep pace with
growth, and the building
began to fray. Workers
worried about mold, and
residents often waited in
the hallway outside the
too-small County Com-
mission chamber.
In the 1990s, officials
began socking away
money for new offices.
Employees said the new
buildings were a sharp
contrast to the old Coun-
ty Administration Build-
ing.
"This is a .100 percent
turnaround," Karyn
Bryant, a county employ-
ee, said after the August


move. "The building is
beautiful, quiet and
clean."

Hundreds of protesters,
some carrying signs bear-
ing pictures of Byrusson
"Hip" Green, called for an
outside investigation into
the death of the Gifford
man, who was shot and
killed by a sheriff's deputy
in November.
Led by clergymen and
members of the Green
family, about 500 protes-
tors marched from the
Indian River County Cour-
thouse to the Sheriff's
Office. During the Dec. 1
rally, protesters chanted,
"No justice, no peace!"
"We're not here to point
at anybody, but we want
justice to be served," said
the Rev. Andrew Jefferson


of St. Peter's Missionary
Baptist Church in Gifford.
Three deputies respond-
ed to a Nov. 16 call, where
they confronted Mr.
Green, who, according to
the report, threatened the
deputies with a pock-
etknife. The deputies hit
Mr. Green twice with a
Taser, but the weapon had
no effect.
Deputy William Luther
then fired a shotgun blast,
hitting the suspect in the
torso. Mr. Green, 43, died
later at Holmes Regional
Medical Center in Mel-
bourne.
Five days before the Dec.
1 march, Sheriff Roy Ray-
mond held a three-hour
. meeting with 23 commu-
nity leaders.
"We gave them as much
information as we could"
about the ongoing inter-
nal investigation of the
case, he said.

LUNCH WITH SANTA


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Four-year-old Marianna Perez, of Vero Beach, and 50 or so classmates from St. Helers Head Start, had lunch with,
and received presents from Santa at the Isles of Vero Beach Retirement Community Dec. 13. The community's art
group sponsored the event.

From page A6


Both the Sheriff's Office
aand the State Attorney's
Office are investigating
the incident. The three
deputies were placed on
administrative leave.
Family members and
friends said Mr. Green
had a history of depres-'
sion and emotional prob-
lems, which may have
influenced, his behavior,
they said.
Protestors were unde-
terred by drizzling rain
during the two-hour,
four-mile march from the
courthouse to the Sher-
iff's Office. Some
marchers carried signs
that read, "In God we
trust, not cops."
'At theend of the march,

Florida Department of

for a petition to Gov.
Charlie Crist.


"We wanted to express
our outrage in an organ-

ner," said the Rev. William
Richardson of Grace Bap-
tist Church in Port St.
Lucie, and the local rep-
resentative for the
National Action Network,
the civil rights group led
.by the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Escrow crisis leaves
agents, buyers
in a lurch
The first and last sign of
-a looming real estate cri-
sis was a one-page letter:
"At this time, Coastal
Escrow Services will not
be able to return any
funds it is holding on any
leases or real estate clos-
ings," it stated.
Since dozens of real
estate agents received the
letter in September, local


and state agencies have
been investigating now-
shuttered Coastal Escrow.
Officials intervened after
property buyers and real
estate agents complained
that money held by the
escrow company was not.
available at the time their
sales were to close.
Vero Beach attorney Ira
C. Hatch Jr., who owned
Coastal Escrow and
Coastal Title Services,
also faced a probe from
the Florida Bar Associa-
tion. In September, Mr.
Hatch was voluntarily
disbarred, for using at
least $200,000 in client
funds from his law firm
for personal or business
purposes.
And state Chief Finan-
cial Officer Alex Sink
ordered a probe of Port
St. Lucie-based Coastal
Title by the Florida
Department of Financial
Services.


In the aftermath of the
Coastal Escrow collapse,
real estate agents who
worked with the compa-
ny sought to limit dam-
age in a wide-ranging
case that investigators
said could impact the real
estate market across the
Treasure Coast.
"It's a pretty large
effect," Carl Sciara, a Vero
Beach real estate broker,
said in September. 'We
don't know all of the fall-
out at this point."
Lawsuits against
Coastal Escrow and its
officers mounted. Clients
claimed that Coastal
Escrow refused to return
money and bounced
checks.

Mining permits


set for 6-month


freeze


Residents list
dust,
groundwater as
concerns
BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staffwriter
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
-Amy Banov, aVero Beach
architect who lives near
two sand mines, told the
County Commission last
-week about dust kicked up
by mining operations and
giant potholes caused by
heavy'dump trucks.
"They do real damage to
our roads, and they are a
real safety hazard," she
said at the Dec. 18 meeting.
Backed by residents con-
cerned about the environ-
ment and safety, the Coun-
ty Commission voted 5-0 to
move ahead with a six-
month moratorium on per-
mits for new rock and sand
mines.
After listening to hours of
comments from citizens
and mine developers, com-
missioners set a Jan. 7
moratorium vote.
Some residents, includ-
ing Mrs. Banov, described
mining as both a threat to
the surrounding environ-
ment and the health of
nearby residents.
But Port St. Lucie attor-
ney Jonathan Ferguson,
who represents the pro-
posed Wild Turkey Estates
mine, said the moratorium
was aimed at his client.
"This moratorium is,
pure and simple, an effort
to come up with some kind
of regulation in the future
that would prohibit the
Wild Turkey mine," Mr.
Ferguson said.
Developers plan to mine
sand and coquina, a rock
comprised of sand and
shell, on the 835-acre Wild
Turkey Estates near 82nd
Avenue.
If the mining freeze is
enacted next month, the
six-month moratorium will
allow county staff time to


rewrite mining regulations.
Preserving groundwater
also concerned mining
opponents.
County Agricultural
Advisory Committee
Chairman Bob Adair said
mining could contaminate
the Floridan Aquifer or
cause groundwater to
evaporate.
Former Vero Beach
Mayor Warren Winchester
called on the county to
research the impact of
mines on groundwater. He
suggested the moratorium
could be extended up to
two years.
Supporters compared
the mining ban to the fight
for countywide building
height restrictions that fol-
lowed the construction of
the Village Spires condo-
minium in the late 1970s.
"This is a challenge to
the quality of life county-
wide," Deborah Ecker, an
Indian River Neighbor-
hood Association repre-
sentative, told commis-
sioners.
Though the IRNA sup-
ported the moratorium,
the slow-growth group also
urged commissioners to
rewrite zoning rules for
agricultural land to prevent
industrial activities such as
mining.
Jens Tripson, a member
of the Pelican Island
Audubon Society, urged
commissioners to enact a
moratorium. He said
allowing a mine next toW
conservation land would
hinder preservation.
"You've defeated the pur-
pose," Mr. Tripson said.
"You've wasted that
money."
In February, the county
paid $12 million for devel-
opment rights at the 462-
acre Treasure Hammock
Ranch, located near the
proposed Wild Turkey
Estates mine.
Joe Paladin, a Sebastian
consultant hired by Wild
Turkey Estates owners,.said

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- A new approach to caring
for seniors expanded into
Indian River County this fall:
Senior Advocacy, a program
provided by Mederi Care-
tenders to help seniors
maintain their health and
well-being.
Mederi Caretenders,
based in Louisville, Ky., aims
to help homebound seniors
who take multiple medica-
tions to manage several
conditions or diseases.
The goal, the company
stated, is to encourage and
empower seniors. Further-
more, Mederi Caretenders
aims to aid patients and
their families during the at-
home treatment process.
"This is a good, solid, clin-
ical approach to manage-
ment for seniors," said
Cathy Newhouse, vice presi-
dent of clinical operations


and business management
for Mederi Caretenders.
Experts at Mederi Care-
tenders use a comprehen-
sive assessment process to
learn more about the needs
of homebound seniors, and
use the information to
improve seniors' lives.
The goal is to keep ailing
seniors out of hospitals, so
they can age at home.
Candidates for the Senior
Advocacy program suffer
from several conditions or
diseases, face frequent hos-
pitalizations, require multi-
ple caregivers, take several
medications and rely on
programs such as Meals on
Wheels to help them get by.
Following a comprehen-
sive assessment, patients
enrolled in the Senior Advo-
cacy program are eligible for
many services and treat-
ments, including physical,
occupational and speech
therapy.
Home health aides, nurses
and other caretakers are
essential to the Mederi Care-
tenders method. To ensure
quality care, the company
hires caregivers and nurses
with a background in at-
home care, and then spends
weeks training them in the
Mederi Caretenders stan-
dards.

a moratorium would ham-
per economic develop-
ment, while mining would
help create jobs.
"We can't really stand
another adverse effect on
the economy," he said.
On Dec. 13, county plan-
ning commissioners were
set to consider approval of
the Wild Turkey Estates
application, but project
developers pulled the
request a day before the
meeting. Developers want-
ed to give county staff more
time to review the proposal.,
During the Dec. 13 meet-
ing, planning commission-
ers urged the County Com-
mission to enact a


In Indian River County, the
company began training
caretakers early this fall.
"This is a community that's
embraced home care and
caregivers," Ms. Newhouse
said.
Seniors in the program are-
assigned to keep an "advoca-
cy journal," which helps
them manage their own care
by tracking their activity,
medication and mobility. The
journal helps caretakers and
physicians quickly determine
medical problems.,
To determine the level of
care required, Mederi Care-
tenders uses 10 standardized
tools.
Ms. Newhouse said the
Senior Advocacy effort is
rooted in compassion.
When new Medicare bene-
fits were launched in 2006, "I
watched a lot of folks fall
between the cracks," she
said.
The most common reac-
tion she receives from peo-
ple when she explains the
Senior Advocacy approach
is, "'It's about time, why did-
n't someone think of this
before?'" she said.

six-month mining morato-
rium.
At the County Commis-
sion meeting, Wild Turkey
Estates owner Scott Sanders
sought compromise.
He said mining tech-
niques would prevent dust.
Developers also offered to
reach an agreement on
truck traffic, he said. :
Mr. Sanders urged corn-,
missioners to work with
mine applicants instead of
enacting the moratorium.
"Consider us," he said.
"I'm not saying, use us. I'm
not saying, give us the per-
mit. I'm saying, get the facts
from the experts, and con-
sider us."

In the complaint, the
clients said $50,000 held
by Coastal Escrow was not
available as they prepared
to close on a property
sale, according to the
police report.
Vero Beach Police then
"received several more
complaints from various
local businesses and pri-
vate citizens," the report
stated. And the investiga-
tion widened.
"It's unfortunate," Sheryl
Wetzel, president of the
Realtors Association of St.
Lucie, said in September.
"I'm sure all of the reper-
cussions have yet to sur-
face."

Candidates eye
Election Day long
before vote

Months before the first
campaign signs sprouted
in front yards, the first
local political candidates
in the 2008 election sea-
son were stumping for
votes.
From the County Com-
mission to the Sheriff's
Office, from the School
Board to the Supervisor of
Elections Office, would-be
politicians eyed endorse-
ments, pressed flesh and
tested campaign themes.
Voter interest is higher
during presidential elec-
tion years, but there is a
tradeoff for the 16 candi-
dates who filed campaign
paperwork this year:
Instead of a sprint to Elec-
tion Day, candidates will
face a marathon cam-
paign.
Election Day is Nov. 4,
2008. The primary elec-
tion, which will determine
Democratic and Republi-
can nominees for partisan
races, is set for Aug. 26.
Candidates can qualify for
local races through June
20.

'08 race filed his paper-
work. His opponent,
School Board incumbent
Ann Reuter, launched her
campaign 11 months
later.
Other political hopefuls
began jockeying for posi-

The contest to succeed
Sheriff Roy Raymond has
attracted five candidates,
the most of any county-
wide race. Mr. Raymond
announced in January
that he would not seek a
third term. So far, the
sheriff has not endorsed a
candidate. N
Four Republicans and a
Democrat are vying to
replace him. A sixth sher-
iff candidate dropped out
in August, citing fundrais-


ing difficulties.
In addition to the sheriff
race, three County Com-
mission seats and two
School Board seats will be
decided in 2008. Voters
will also cast ballots for a
clerk of the court, elec-
tions supervisor, property
appraiser and tax collec-
tor.

Medicare cuts ties
with insurer,
affecting 12,000
A week after their health
insurance was unexpect-
edly shifted to another
provider, thousands of
retirees packed hotel con-
ference rooms across
Florida.
America's Health Choice,
their former insurer, faced
scrutiny from federal
investigators. Policyhold-
ers, expressing anger, frus-
tration and uncertainty,
had questions for their
new, government-selected
insurer.
Until Medicare terminat-
ed its contract with Vero
Beach-based America's
Health Choice in July, the
company insured 12,000
customers in seven Florida
counties, including 7,000
beneficiaries on the Trea-
sure Coast.
Medicare cited delays in
medical care, shoddy care
and other problems when
it terminated the Ameri-
ca's Health Choice con-
tract the first time regu-
lators axed a Medicare
plan because of substan-
dard care.
But there were no
reports of patients being
harmed by low-quality


care, the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid
Services said.
Policyholders were trans-
ferred to SecureHorizons,
another insurer, the same
day the America's Health
Choice contract was termi-
nated.
For the former America's
Health Choice customers,
questions remained even
as SecureHorizons hosted
a series of forums
designed to smooth the
transition.
Following a July Secure-
Horizons meeting in Vero
Beach, Nancy Peters said
she enjoyed her low-cost
America's Health Choice
plan.
"I figured it was too good
to be true," the Vero Beach
woman said.
Until they received let-
ters from SecureHorizons
on July 20, America's
Health Choice customers
had no indication that
their provider was facing a
federal probe.
"I found out on [July 22]
when I went to pick up my
medication, and that was
a shocker," Port St. Lucie
resident Josette Ayres said.
"I have no complaints with
America's Health Choice."
America's Health Choice,
established in 2000,
butted, heads with federal
officials in 2005, when
Medicare temporarily
banned the company from
enrolling new customers
or advertising its plans,
because it failed to meet
federal standards.


The latest investigation
crippled the insurer.
Three months after
Medicare cut ties, Ameri-
ca's Health Choice shut
down. Executives auc-
tioned contents from the
Vero Beach headquarters,
and listed a Port St. Lucie
office building for sale.

Administrators, students and teachers at Glendale Elementary School greet School Board members and Superintendent
Harry La Cava (center), last week, after the officials walked two miles from Rosewood Magnet Skhool. Board members
launched the fitness program in August, and plan to walk between two schools at least one morning per month for the
duration of the school year.

Officials work up a sweat to promote fitness


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BFACH -When the
procession left Rosewood
Magnet School early one
morning, School Board mem-
bers wore coats, and Superin-
tendent Harry La Cava
donned a Florida Gators
windbreaker.
Before the officials reached
the halfway point on their
two-mile trek to Glendale Ele-
mentary School, the coats had
been shed, and s6me walkers
were dabbing sweat from
their brows.
Since September, board
members have made three
walks between schools, and
there are plans to walk from
school-to-school one T'esday
each month until the end of
the school year.
lThe goal, board members
said, was to show that their
concerns about physical fit-
ness were not limited to set-
ting district policy.
"Kids pay attention to what
you do, not just what you say,"
board member Debbie MacK-
ay said.
Board Chairwoman Karen
Disney-Brombach, who.
brainstormed the walks, said
other board members
applauded the idea.
And, along with promoting
fitness to students, "this
brings us closer to the faculty
and the parents," Mrs. Dis-
ney-Brombach said during
the Dec. 18 walk.


At Rosewood Magnet, stu-
dents held aloft yellow ban-
ners welcoming the School
Board. Members of the
school chorus sang. As the
officials left the parking lot,
they slapped high-fives with
students and teachers.
"We want to thank our
School Board members for
staying healthy and keeping
fit," Principal Deborah Dil-
lon said.
"Whether you're a child or
an adult, fitness is impor-


tant," she told her students.
The 45-minute stroll from
Rosewood Magnet to Glen-
dale Elementary took the
walkers through tree-lined
neighborhoods, instead of
along busy thoroughfares
without sidewalks.
At Glendale Elementary,
students cheered as the offi-
cials entered the parking lot
and glided to the finish line,
which was marked with
crepe paper.

Reuter said the exercise also
gave the School Board a bet-

get more students to walk to

said adding and improving
sidewalks might be the solu-
tion.
"We can accomplish a lot

minerals, including
nitrogen, to your plants.
Because the nutrients
are released so slowly, the
product is excellent for
use on new plantings as
well as bulbs. Bone meal
is an excellent product to
use on rose bushes and
new transplants to help
avoid plant shock. Bone
meal also helps plants
maintain and develop
healthy root systems.
Blood meal is another
product available at most
nursery retailers, although
many people do not know
how well this product can
work. Blood meal is
actually made from the
blood collected from


.AdddmkkL


animal processing plants.
This collected blood is
stored in cooled vats that
use an agitator to keep the
whole blood from coagu-
lating. It is then sent to
drying plants where the
product is spray dried.
Once dried, the product is
packaged in bulk 50-
pound bags and sent to
various distributors where
it is packaged for the
consumer.
Blood meal is an excel-
lent source of rapid
release nitrogen. This
product can be used on all
plants and is especially
useful for plants that are
heavy feeders. It is a great
product for when you
want fast greening or to
give your plants an energy
boost.
If you grow lettuce in
your vegetable garden, it
is especially useful for
helping grow your "dream
salad."
You can apply the
product on top of the soil
and water it in or mix it
with water and use like a
liquid fertilizer. In s6me
lawn and garden supply
stores, you can purchase
bulk quantities if you
want to use it on your
lawn as a quick boost.
Lime is another useful
product that is widely
available. The active
ingredient in lime is
simply calcium. Lime is an
excellent product to use if
you have a vegetable
garden. Since the vast
majority of Florida's soil is
acidic, vegetable gardens
can benefit from lime
because most veggies
require a lower ph level in
the soil for optimum
growth. It can also help
provide sweeter veggies.


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook

Lime can also be useful
for your lawn, but it would
be a good idea to test the
ph of your soil first to
determine if is actually
needed.
Occasionally, you may
encounter yellowing of
certain plants such as
hibiscus, ixoria and
gardenias, just to name a
few. Yellowing is often
caused by an iron defi-
ciency in the soil. Adding
an iron supplement in
either granular or liquid
form will often reverse
this yellowing trend and
get your plants back to
their original lush green
color.
Iron can also be used to
help promote a lush green
lawn that you can brag
about. Most, but not all,
lawn fertilizers contain a
percentage of iron.
Sometimes this percent-
age is too small and an
iron deficiency can still
develop. You can buy iron
at many nursery retailers
in different size packages
as well as in different
forms: liquid and granu-
lar.
As you can see, there are
plenty ofadditives you
can experiment with
besides just your basic
fertilizers. All are safe if
used according to package
directions.
You never know, you just
might come up with that
record-setting tomato or
lettuce plant.

TRAVEL



Writer thankful to have seen the amazing wonders of Italy


A palm growing next to
a light post, and the
till balmy weather in
late November, made me
feel as if I were in Florida.
But as my true love,
Jeannie, and I walked
farther into central Rome, I
gradually became immersed
in this host city and, for the
most part, relished being a
foreigner.
Scooters, motorbikes, cars
and buses gunned their way
around the Victor
Emmanuel Monument, a
castle-like building where
Mussolini used to deliver
speeches from a balcony.
Chariots of fire galloped
atop its towers, reminding
me of Caesar's Palace in Las
Vegas.
Nearby was a graceful
present: The Pantheon,
supported by thick
columns, with candlelight
shining on its interior gold
crosses, white sculptures,
and paintings rich in
biblical scenes.
Outside, a carved face
lightheartedly spit water
into a fountain next to
diners under canopies and
the night's shy moon.
Besides my passport and
money, my camera was my
most prized possession on
this trip. There seemed to be
a photo opportunity around
every corner of this ancient
city.
We had entered Italy by
flying over the snow-dotted
Alps. I tried going in fresh,
with few images and bits of
advice from books, Web
sites and television to spoil
the adventure.
It worked.
When we first left the cozy
confines of our hotel room
in Rome, we chuckled at the
tiny Mr. Bean-like cars
running along the city
streets. Although I'm sure
these pint-sized vehicles
provide great gas mileage,
their drivers probably prefer
them because of the mostly


narrow, twisted streets in
Rome, which has nearly 4
million residents.
While those Roman
streets seemed quieter than
their American counter-
parts, good luck crossing
them as a pedestrian!
Near the Victor
Emmanuel Monument, we
saw a police officer, whose
uniform included white
gloves and a helmet,
directing many rows of
traffic from a platform
inside a roundabout. But
overall, I saw few crosswalks
and traffic signals, and we
often had to pray that the
drivers would stop for us.
Besides having to dodge
traffic, we weren't thrilled at
the graffiti on buildings near
the central bus and train
terminal.
Still, those recollections
are easily overshadowed by
the opulence found in most
other parts of Rome we
visited.
My better memories of
the city include one of an
old man in a dark gray suit
reaching into a box of treats
for dozens of pigeons in an
ancient square.
Surrounding the square
were buildings dressed in
different colors of paint,
with windows graced by
arches. Their designers
succeeded in creating
enduring beauty.
Also standing the test of
time, of course, was the
Colosseum. It's worth


TONY JUDNICH
Staff writer
setting aside at least two
hours to explore its vast
remains.
Just as enjoyable were the
views of some of Rome's
stately homes, where we
spotted tangerine trees in
courtyards, flowerboxes
outside windows and
elaborate light fixtures.
At the Trevi Fountain,
Rome's largest, Jeannie and I
enjoyed a night view of a
figure of Neptune and other
statues. Some men sold
roses and other items to
tourists who arrived by the
busload.
The equally crowded
Spanish Steps were fun to
visit, but a massive adver-
tisement between church
towers at the top of the
steps spoiled some of the
scene.
At Vatican City the
world's smallest state we
saw a church official
walking down stairs

between two colorfully
dressed guards. Inside St.
Peter's, we were awed by
Michelangelo's Pieta, which
he created in 1499 at age 25.
It looked flawless.
Statues of cherubs, angels
and popes were everywhere,
from eye level to ceiling,
and throngs of admirers
enjoyed them quietly.
Outside again, we spotted
a hummingbird hovering
above the Tiber River. We
crossed bridges lined with
statues and, at an outdoor
caf6, enjoyed thin-crusted
pizza with red wine.
Whenever possible, we
dined outside. One of our
few indoor meals was at
Papa Rex, a restaurant we
stopped at during a night
tour of Rome. Here, live


Italian and Roman folk
songs accompanied our
feast.
Our dinner party included
couples from South Caroli-
na and NewYork. I realized
it was Thanksgiving and,
with a trace of homesick-
ness, I made a toast.
Near the end of our
whirlwind trip to Italy,
Jeannie and Iwent on a
three-hour train ride from
Rome to Florence. Vine-
yards, hills covered with
orange and brown houses
and concrete picket fences
sailed past our window.
To me, Florence looked
and smelled medieval.
Many of its huge, ancient
buildings seemed layered
with soot. I remember
smelling smoke from a

Ask The Jeweler
Vintage Jewelry Give

than that "cookie cutter" jew-
elry shown everywhere? Well,
that is what an estate jeweler
specializes in.

purchasing estate jewelry.
Price is one of the reasons to
buy estate jewelry, because
someone else has already
paid the high markup.
Unique is another reason.

jewelry goes into our show-
cases.

customers about buying
"used" jewelry. The are usu-
ally concerned about giving
something pre-owned as a
gift. Well, at St, Lucie jewelry,
we have a staff of four expert
jewelers that completely
restore every piece to its
original condition. In fact we
are experts in antique jewelry
restoration, so you are
always assured of a perfect
piece that will last another 50
years.
This holiday season look
around and see what is out
there at other jewelers,
including price, value and
something different. Then
come to St. Lucie Jewelry
last and compare. Be it dia-
monds, gold, antique jewelry,
or watches, your will consis-
tently find St. Lucie Jewelry
to be the most competitive
and the most fun you will

As they did near the
bridges in Rome, artists set
up their easels outside the
Duomo and offered paint-
ings for sale. Intricate
shapes and figures on the
exteriors of the Duomo, and
The Bapistry next door,
made these two structures
the most impressive forms


of architecture I saw in Italy.
But there were simpler
scenes in Florence that I
also cherish, such as a lone,
silver-colored scooter
parked next to a mustard-
colored building with
wooden doors and shutters.
One of the last photos I
took in Italy was of a view


from a restaurant we ate at
in Florence. The picture
shows a bottle of wine on
our outside table in the
foreground, with statues,
including a copy of
Michelangelo's David, in the
back.
Here at home, I enjoy
remembering such sights


and experiences and, with a
trace of longing, I make a
toast.

Illegal aliens have it
easy
You want free health care,
public schooling, in-state
tuition, welfare, and driver
licenses for illegal aliens all
in hope of votes and what
you see as loyal minions.
Did it ever occur to you
and some Republicans that
you will all be voted out?
Wake up. They already
have their own people ready
to step in.
I know how hard you fight
for felons and illegal aliens
to vote, just about as hard as
you try to block our brave
soldier's votes. At least some
felons are legal citizens.
What part of illegal is so

hard to understand?
Crossing our borders is
just the first law that is bro-
ken. I consider it invading a
sovereign country. Driving
and holding a license is a
privilege. I know a few peo-
ple that have been jailed for
losing this privilege. What
about the issue of identity
theft and giving out false
social security numbers?
Again, American citizens
are jailed for this crime. My
daughter's could not cross
lines to attend public
schools, yet illegal aliens are
welcomed with open arms.
My children could not travel
to an out of state school and
expect to get in-state
tuition, yet we give them to
illegal aliens not to mention
every form of public aid and
top priority for scholarships.

From page A6


There is absolutely no
respect for this country.
Now, the Mexican flag is
flown over ours. They have
the right to be patriotic to a
country they fled, in our
homeland; yet, we have to
fight to be patriotic in our
own country.
Enough is enough, I'd
move my family to Mexico
when it finally empties out,
but guess what, you can
never be come a full citizen
there. Funny, their southern
border is protected by the
military.

Does anyone have the
number for Homeland
Security?
I tried to get a hold of
homeland security but
couldn't find it, so I called
911. They didn't have it
either. What kind of Sheriffs
department doesn't have the
number for Homeland
Security so I can report ille-
gal immigrants?
Editor's note: The Home-
land Security contact for
Florida is ThomasJ. Mclner-
ney, Homeland Security

Medical techs getting
bad rap
This is in regard to the rant
about medical technicians
needing more training. The
person that.said that must
not know what it feels like to
be a medical assistant or any
kind of technician in the
medical field. I am a nursing
assistant, and I lift patients
bigger than me. And I have a
stethoscope around my
neck, and I know which end
to use on the patients chest.
Whoever wrote that rant
should attend a medical
assistant class. I have
worked with patients that
have Alzheimer's, cancer,
and AIDS. If you have any
questions about what it feels
like to be a' technician, go to
an ACLE nursing home, or
an agency and go out with
the nurses. This person does
not know how it feels. I
advise that person to shut
up, because we are not the
cause of the outbreaks in the
hospitals. The doctors and
the people who do not ster-
ilize the equipment cause
the outbreaks. The person
should watch what they are
saying because you never
know who will be washing
your behind when you are
old.

Too much strain on
paramedics
After a recent accident I
had to be transported to a
hospital. I realized that there
is a lot of strain on the para-
medics when they are lifting
people, especially someone
bigger than me. There has to
be some kind of device that
could help these men out. If
someone has any ideas,
please let someone know.


Looking lot.

Starbucks adopts academy for Christmas


BY JAY MEISEL
Associate managing editor
VERO BEACH Children
at Little Palms Academy
received a Christmas sur-
prise this year.
Lynn Mueller, the direc-
tor, said it was a surprise
for her, as well, when she
found out that the Star-
bucks on State Road 60
planned to adopt the acad-
emy for Christmas.
During the past several
weeks, Starbucks employ-
ees posted a wish list for
children at the academy,
manager Jim Cannini said.
Customers responded
with a variety of toys and
gifts for the children.


Ms. Mueller said she was
overwhelmed by the
response.
"They keep on collect-
ing," she said. "Its phenom-
enal. Their generosity has
made a positive impact in
our lives."
The children received the
gifts Dec. 8 during a party
at Starbucks that also fea-
tured cookies and hot
chocolate.
The party inspired the
community to get involved,
providing books and play
equipment, besides toys,
Ms. Mueller said. 1
Mr. Cannini said he
enjoyed seeing the parents
and the children so happy.
It all came about after a


customer recommended to
Melissa Weaver, the assis-
tant manager, that Star-
bucks help the academy
celebrate Christmas.
Ms. Weaver said she pre-
sented the idea to Mr. Can-
nini, who also favored it.
Starbucks has been
involved each year with a
program to help provide a
better Christmas to chil-
dren in each of the commu-
nities served by the chain,
Mr. Cannini said.
Little Palms serves 80
children from the time they
are infants to 5-years-old.
Some of them wouldn't be


able to attend without
receiving assistance.
Ms. Mueller said the
academy believes all chil-
dren should have the
opportunity to attend pre-
kindergarten programs.
"We reach out for com-
munity support because we
have unique needs and we
believe that every child
deserves an enriched early
childhood learning experi-
ence," she said. "We also
believe that a sense of com-
munity creates a cohesive
and stable environment for
our children and their fam-
ilies."

restaurant tucked


in courtyard


BY JULIE L. CLEVELAND
For Hometown News
Tucked away in a quaint
courtyard in downtown Vero
Beach is a remarkable little
restaurant that goes by the
name of Melody Inn.
When you walk into the
enclosed square of the Semi-
nole Courtyard, you are
greeted by warmth that
comes from the gentle over-
::head lighting and the soft
browns of the floor tile. The
court boasts park benches,
Dora] and fauna in window
boxes and planters, and an
old-fashioned hand water'
pump. The twinkling lights
add a festive touch to the
area outside the main door
and Woody the waiter with
his specials board greets you.
Upon entrance into
Melody Inn, you are greeted
at the door and discover a
subdued and elegant atmos-
phere with soft overhead
lighting from the high ceil-
ings. The dining area is warm
and cozy and though there is
closeness between the
Stables, I discovered that it

Our hostess took us to our
table where she lit the candle
and offered us our menus.
We met our waiter, Urs,
immediately following being
seated and he presented an
extensive wine list and
helped us get settled. For
starters, I chose a simple
glass of ice water while I
looked over the menu. My
husband ordered ice tea.
As I looked over the menu,
I was drawn to an entree of
St. Peters Tilapia Parisienne.
The Tilapia was described as
being lightly battered,
sauteed in butter, fresh
asparagus, lemon, herbs and
Chablis.
Urs returned to describe
the specials of the night,
which turned out to be the
entrees that we chose.
I chose Snapper Valencia
and my husband chose
pompano almandine. The
other special of the evening
was Angus filet mignon,
which made it very difficult
to choose.
Urs presented us with a
baguette of French bread,

Compassion and idealism, along

You have serious goals. Your natural

OHIN a ENTERIHNMENI


Play focused on post war England


BY BARBARA ISENBERG
Entertainment writer
April showers can be
bleak, especially in showery
London. And perhaps the
dreariness is exacerbated
when the timeframe is 1922
in post World War I England
where women like their
counterparts in America -
were beginning the feel the
season of their discontent.
"Enchanted April," a
romantic comedy made
famous on the big screen
and Broadway, will delve
into the lives of four diverse-
ly different British women
and how they re-found hap-
piness and themselves dur-
ing a springtime sojourn to
the Tuscan region of Italy.
The play is being present-
ed by the Vero Beach The-
atre Guild under the capable
direction of Tony Della
Rocca and will open Thurs-
day; Jan 10, and run through
Jan. 20.
Mr. Della Rocca, a New
York native, developed an


Larry Sirci and Nancy Stiefel perform in "Enchanted April."


early love of theatre and
entertainment and was a
professional actor in his
youth. A graduate ofVillano-
va University, Mr. Della
Rocca acted on live televi-


sion in the 1950s and had
roles in productions, which
were aired on the Studio
One Kraft Theatre and Play-
house 90. He also did sum-
mer stock theatre on Cape


I~sr


Cod.
"I always loved reading
plays and my parents took
me to the theatre early on,"
Mr. Della Rocca said.
His burgeoning career
was beginning to be noticed
and his agent asked him to
relocate to the west coast.
However, his roots were in
New York arid Mr. Della
Rocca opted to stay in the
Empire State were he took a
variety of jobs between the-
ater roles.
On a dare from a friend,
his acting career veered off
to one in teaching although
his love for theatre remained
intact.
"A friend said why not go
into teaching and dared me
to do it. I took the exam and
passed but I didn't have the
education courses so I took
a position as a substitute
teacher for grades 'K-8," Mr.
Della Rocca said.
The rookie teacher was
assigned a potentially diffi-
cult class of emotionally dis-
turbed boys, but Mr. Della

From page B4


Rocca put his theatrical
skills to good use and used
puppets as a means to reach
his students.
"I won over the kids and
even had them doing soft
shoe routines. I enjoyed it so
much I began to put off the
auditions I was still going to
and my career began to
change. But I kept my inter-
est in theatre and since I was
also community minded I
did some local theatre and
shows," he said.
At that time, Mr. Della
Rocca was living in the
Bronx where there were no
local theatre groups, .
"The parents (qof his stu-
dents) asked me to form a
group so we started the Cen-
ter Stage Community Play-
house, which is now in its
40th year. I am proud of that
and some of the ones who
are running it now are my
former students," he said.
Following successful
careers in teaching and later
as owner of a travel agency,
Mr. Della Rocca relocated to
Vero Beach where he quickly
noted the Vero Beach The-
atre Guild, which is now cel-
ebrating its 50th anniver-
sary.
"I thought how can I get

involved as quickly as possi-
ble? So I took a director's
workshop and they asked
me to do main stage pro-
ductions," Mr. Della Rocca
said.
When the guild's board of
directors was reviewing pro-
posed productions for this
golden anniversary year, Mr.
Della Rocca asked them to
consider staging "Enchant-
ed April."
"I always wanted to do it.
It's a play based on a novel
by Elizabeth von Armin. It
opened on Broadway in
New York in 2002 or 2003
starring Molly Ringwald and
Elizabeth Ashley, and there
were also two movie ver-
sions of the play," Mr. Della
Rocca said.
Although the play is set in
post-war London and Tus-
cany in 1922, the theme of
the show is timeless and
addresses disenchantment
with one's life and then the
renewal and joy that comes
from the examination of and
changes to that life.
The story opens with two
frustrated London house-
wives deciding to rent a villa
in Italy for a holiday to
briefly escape the dreary
weather of London and their

even drearier marriages.
Characters Lotty Wilton and
Rose Arnott recruit two
other English women to
share the cost and the expe-
rience of Tuscany. There
amid the Mediterranean sun
and flower blossoms, all
four ladies rediscover them-
selves in ways they would
not have imagined and, like
the flowers following April
showers, bloom again.
"I think it's a beautiful
story and in the end they
rekindle the relationships
with their husbands. It has a
happy ending," said Mr.
Della Rocca with a smile.
In given a thumbnail
sketch of the characters, Mr.
Della Rocca noted that Lotty
is very much a dreamer with
an optimistic viewpoint
most of the time, but who
can also despair in an
almost bi-polar-like swing
of moods.
"She's a forceful personali-
ty and an organizer," he
explained.
Vero Beach resident
Nancy Stiefel, whose hus-
band Jack plays the villa
owner Antony Wilding, is


cast as Lotty.
According to Mr. Della
Rocca, her character as well
as real persona blend beau-
tifully and effectively with
that of her close friend Rose
Arnott, played by Pat Kroger
of Ft. Pierce.
"They play so well togeth-
er. You want personalities to
gel with each other on stage
and these two are super,"
said Mr. Della Rocca.
Mrs. Stiefel noted that she
is quite fond of "Lotty" and
is especially taken with this
play.
"It's funny, it's poignant,
it's a little slapstick at times
and it's a happily-ever-after
ending. Lotty is a Pollyanna
- she's upbeat and it's really
a fun role to play. I read the
book about three years ago
and in the summer of 2005
for our 40th anniversary, my
husband and I went to
northern Italy," Mrs. Stiefel
said.
This production marks
one of several that both
Stiefels have acted in during
their association with the

rot bits that added a nutty fla-
vor to the slaw. It was an
excellent choice to accompa-
ny the fish.
The Pompano almandine
was a delicate fish lightly bat-
tered and cooked with
almonds, lemon and Madero
wine sauce. It had a tender
flaky white meat that melted
in your mouth. My husband
also chose the Rosti potatoes
and the coleslaw.
We were talked into sharing
a bit of dessert by our gra-
cious host, owner and chef,
Margaret Burri, whose spe-
cialty in Swiss Chocolates is
simply something you must
taste to fully appreciate. We
were presented with a bowl of
Coupe Toblerone Chantilly,
which is a generous scoop of
ice cream covered in a magi-
cal blend of seven Swiss
Chocolates that Margaret has
perfected. One bite of the
light airy ice cream and the
creamy sweet chocolate and I
was as Margaret said, "in
heaven". It was sweet and
delectable.
Urs informed us that Mar-
garet's true specialty lies in
her Bumble berry Pie. He
described this as a deep-dish
pie filled with blackberries,
raspberries, strawberries,
blueberries, and dusted with
grated apples. This berry
explosion is served al a mode
and I will need to make
another trip back to Melody


RO SQUARE
S Highway 1
(at Oslo Rd)


Inn to not only try this pie but
to try the Tilapia that I was
drawn to in the beginning.
When you go to the Melody
Inn, make sure that you add
truffles to your dessert fare, as
that is one of the specialties in
which Margaret excels. They
also make a wonderful gift.
Melody Inn is located in the
Seminole Courtyard at 1309
19th Place in Vero Beach and
it can be reached at (772) 770-
2071 for reservations. Hans
and Margaret Burri have
owned the Melody Inn for
more than 20 years, only
recently relocating it to Vero
from Coral Gables. Urs has
been with Hans and Margaret
for more than 20 years, relo-
cating along with them.
The Melody Inn provides
wine by the glass or by the
bottle, and carries an interna-
tional selection. Every Tues-
day is half price wine day.
Dinner is served Tuesday
through Saturday from 5 p.m.
Entrees range in price from
$18-$30 and are served with a
choice of two vegetables and
a French baguette. Appetizers
start at $7 and include such
items as mussels, escargot,
morels and fondue.
Swiss cheese fondue is
served on Thursday and Sun-
day in the Swiss Chalet Room.
Reservations are required for
a minimum of two.

. Unlike Lotty, the character
of Rose is that of a some-
what pious, somewhat prim

Treasure Coast

Sports Year in Review


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
The most appealing
aspect of sports is that
there is never a day with-
out one being played. The
seasons may change, but
there is continuously a
team or athlete that com-
pels you to watch, to cheer
and to read about the next
day.
This year was no differ-
ent especially along the
Treasure Coast, as many
players and teams turned
in memorable perform-
ances that generated not
only local interest but
across the state as well.
The following are some of
the best sports stories of
2007:
10. Treasure Coast
makes us Remember the
Titans Very few sports
get people's motor run-
ning like high school foot-
ball. Unfortunately, Trea-
sure Coast ran out of gas
before it hit the track in


I 146 au I'lLt 520 0 Cocoa CO UW Y II Fir


2006, going 0-10. in its
inaugural season offer-
ing little hope for/excite-
ment.
This season started off
the same, as 'Sebastian
River defeated the Titans;
40-18.. Treasure. Coast
showed sparks of life
throughout the game,
however, getting a scintil-
lating 56-yard run from
Rock Angrande to pull
within 13-6 in the opening
moments of ,the second-
quarter and two long
touchdown passes at the
end of the third quarter.
The following week,
Treasure Coast took, on
local rival Port St. Lucie.
The Jaguars jumpedrout to
a 14-0 .lead, and: it
appeared the Titans would,
have to wait yet another
week to garner its first win
in school history. ,
However, Travis Jones
had. touchdown runs of 14
and 16 yards, sandwiched
around a 35-minute rain
delay and suddenly,, the
score was tied at 14.:
After each team
exchanged, scores, the
game was knotted up once
again at 22. With 42 sec-
onds left in the game and
the Titans facing a fourth-
and-goal from the 3-yard
line, Jones plowed into the
end zone, giving Treasure
Coast a dramatic come-
from-behind win.
The Titans finished the
season a much-improved
3-7, and look poised to
make some noise once fall
rolls around.
9. Sebastian River flows
to seventh heaven For
the past six seasons, the
words Sebastian River vol-
leyball and district cham-
pions have become syn-
onymous. Despite
struggling throughout the
2007 campaign, the
Sharks were determined
to make it lucky number
seven.

patched of Treasure Coast

role as underdog to top-
seeded Satellite in the
championship.
iThe Scorpions jumped
on top 5-0 and later led 16-
11, as the Sharks looked
bewildered and confused.
Fortunately, Sebastian was
able to regroup on the
strength of inspired play
by seniors Callie Church-
well and Emily McCall.
: The Sharks took the
opening game 25-20 and
went on to a three-game
win to capture its seventh-
consecutive district
crown. Churchwell led the
way with team-high 26
kills while McCall chipped
in 30 assists, seven digs
and five blocks.
Although the team -fal-
tered later in the playoffs,
the, drive for eight looks'
awfully great for 2008.
8. Fort Pierce Westwood
claws Its way to the top -
After losing a closely
contested game in the sea-
son opener to Vero Beach,
it appeared the Fort Pierce
Westwood football team
would once again take a
back seat to its area rivals
in 2007.
However, after a 16-14
win over the favored South
Fork Bulldogs at Lawn-
wood Stadium was fol-
lowed by another nailbiter
- a 14-7 victory over St.
Lucie West Centennial -
Westwood found itself at
2-1.
Both games showcased'
the Panthers' ability to
come from behind. West-
wood squandered a 10-0
lead against South Fork
only to fall behind 14-10
with less than a quarter to
play in the game.
Isaac Virgin replaced
John Clements at quarter-
back and proceeded to
connect with Devondre
Blakely on a 50-yard pass
play with 2:52 left in the
game to pull out the
thrilling win.
The following week, after
a scoreless tie in the first
half, Centennial pulled
ahead 7-0 when quarter-
back Dustin Bergstol hit
Jamaine Sherman on a 9-
yard touchdown.
The lead would be short-
livedt, tas Leon Shorter
hauled in a 37-yard touch-
down pass to tie the score.
With just under four
minutes left in the game,
Westwood recovered a
fumble on the Centennial
11-yard line, leading to
touchdown run by Javian
Evans. Evans rushed for 68
yards in the game, as West-
wood had a two-game
winning streak.
The victories continued
to pile up as the season
rolled on. Westwood
brought a 7-2 record into
its annual showdown with
Fort Pierce Central and
proceeded to humiliate its
city rival 34-0.


Next up was a three-way
dance for the District 13-
4A title with Okeechobee
and Martin County. After
the Brahmans took care of
the Tigers in the first quar-
ter 7-0, Westwood
returned the favor in the
second.
The Panthers got a 4-
yard touchdown run from
Jerrell Washington. and
held on for a 7-0 win to
garner it second district
titlf in three years, and
10tm overall.
Unfortunately, West-
wood wasn't able to keep
the momentum going, los-
ing to West Boca Raton 27-
7 in the Region 4-4A quar-
terfinal. Despite the loss,
the Panthers finished an
impressive 8-3 and are no
longer on football's
endangered species list.
7. Port St. Lucie baseball
team nearly pitches com-
plete season The Port
St. Lucie Jaguars baseball
team gave the word come-
back a whole new mean-
ing in 2007.
After a stellar regular
season, the Jaguars squad
found itself down 2-0 to
Newsome in the state
semifinals, just four outs
from elimination.
With the bases loaded in
the bottom of the sixth
inning, Port St. Lucie's Max
Scarogni hit a dribbler to
third base that resulted in
a throwing error. The mis-
cue ignited a seven-run
rally that sent the Jaguars
into the state final for the
first time in the program's
18-year history.
The victory marked the
sixth time in the playoffs
that the Jaguars were tied
or behind after the sixth
inning and came out with
a win.
In the FHSAA 5A Final,
Port St. Lucie met Venice.
Things were going
smoothly for the Jaguars
until the fifth inning when
Venice exploded for nine
runs on its way to a 12-1
six-inning win.
Despite the loss, the
team finished 25-8, setting
the benchmark for
Jaguars' teams for years to
come.
6. Area athletes put their
names on the dotted line
-While the goal of practi-
cally every athlete is to
make it to the pros one day
in their chosen field of
expertise, a major step in
achieving those dreams is
to play at the collegiate
level.
To that end, many area
athletes recently turned
those wishes into reality,
signing with colleges
throughout the country in
an effort to ultimately
make it to the big time.
The Treasure Coast made
its mark on the golf course,
as five of its athletes
signed with successful

ofhis game plan.
Offensively, the Indians
did all its talking on the
ground rushing 52
times for 332 yards. The
result was a 41-14 lopsided
win that set the tone for
Vero's season.
2007 saw the Indians
gain a measure of revenge
against perennial power-
house Palm Beach Gar-
dens, dispatching the 2005
6A champions 24-21 after
a heartbreaking loss a year
ago.
The Gators suffered the
same fate when it returned
for a three-way tiebreaker
for the District 7-6A title in
November. After Palm
Beach had eliminated
Jupiter, Verp Beach cap-
tured its 16m crown with a
10-0 win.
The playoffs saw Vero
Beach face another famil-
iar foe in Lake Worth.
Gone were the memories
the rout in September, as
the Trojans built a 14-0
halftime lead.
Not to be deterred, Vero
Beach came back to score
24 second-half points to
win the game 24-21. The
victory sent the Indians to
the Region 2-6A semifinal
where the team faced a
tough ParkVista squad.
After a scoreless first
quarter, the Cobras scored
a touchdown just before
halftime. Park Vista main-
tained a 7-0 lead until the
fourth quarter when aVero
Beach fumble led to the
Cobras finding the end
zone once again.
Like it did all season, the
team wouldn't quit, as
Shawn O'Dare hit Zeke
Motta on a 25-yard touch-
down pass a few minutes
later to cut the Cobras'
lead in half.
Vero Beach had an
opportunity to tie the
score with under a minute
left in the game, but an
O'Dare pass on fourth
down was deflected, end-
ing the Indians' magic car-
pet ride.
However, the 9-3 season
placed Vero Beach back
among the state's best and
offered hope for possibly
another championship
run.
4.Vero Beach team takes
the state to the mat The
Vero Beach girls' wrestling
team was the best-kept
secret on. the Treasure
Coast.
Now, after a dominant
season that culminated in
a state championship, the
Indians' wrestlers left their
opponents with many
painful reminders of just
who they were.
Since its inception eight.
years ago with just two
members, Dr. Sam Cassara
slowly built the squad into
a team in the true sense of
the word. This past season
marked the first time Vero
Beach was able to put a
full contingent of wrestlers
on the mat, and it paid off


in huge dividends.
The team swept all six
tournaments it. entered
leading up to the state
meet highlighted by a
competition in Orlando
early in the season in
which the Indians
scorched its way to 202
points, 56 more than its
nearest opponent.
After finishing third in
the state for the past four
seasons, Vero Beach
entered this year's contest
with several wrestlers hav-
ing career years. Janexis
Rodriguez brought a 13-0
record into the final match
of the year, and didn't dis-
appoint making it to the
finals in the 114-pound
weight class before finally
being brought down.
Also coming in unbeaten
at 13-0 was junior Macy
Evans. The second-year
wrestler overcame Jasmine
Parra of Poinciana High
School to take the crown at
132.
Another standout for the
Indians was Savanna
Duffy, the pride of the 147-
pound class. After finish-
ing second at state a sea-
son earlier, the junior kept
her 10-0 record through-
out the year unblemished
with a convincing win in
the final match of the year.
In the end, Vero Beach
outdistanced its nearest
opponent by over 100
points, the latest chapter
in the program's growth
into a state power.
3. Falcons volleyball
team soars to new heights
- Most 4-year-olds aren't
really capable of doing
much, busily getting ready
for their first days of
kindergarten.
The way the Jensen


Beach volleyball team
played this season, one
would think its opponents
were in preschool due to
its dominating style of
play. When it was all said
and done, the Falcons fin-
ished 26-5 and won a state
championship in just its
fourth year of existence.
Jensen Beach rolled
through most of the sea-
son with a No. 1 ranking in
Class 4A. The Falcons
faced it biggest task thus
far in an away match with
Merritt Island in the
Region 4-4A semifinal.
The team won the first
two games and then
cruised to a 25-20, 25-21,
20-25, 25-23 win, setting
up a contest with defend-
ing state champion Cardi-
nal Gibbons for the
regional title.
Gibbons had eliminated
Jensen in the playoffs a
year earlier, but this time
the Falcons came away
with a scintillating 25-20,
23-25, 19-25, 25-22, 15-5
win to advance to the state
tournament.
Once again, the Falcons
would be pushed to the
limit, but came away with
another five-game win,
this time the victim being
Jacksonville-Bishop
Kenny.
After two naibiters, the
championship match
failed to live up to the
hype, as Jensen Beach took
a 25-14, 25-16, 28-26 win
over Lemon Bay to bring
home the title.
With a solid base of
superstars and upcoming
players, the Falcons are
primed for a possible
repeat and a return to
these pages next year.

Devil Rays announce 2008 coaching staff


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

VERO BEACH The
Tampa Bay Rays have
announced its Minor
League coaching staff for
the 2008 Vero Beach Devil
Rays.
Jim Morrison, who man-
aged the Rays' affiliate in
Columbus, Ga. to a South
Atlantic League champi-
onship in 2007, was named
Manager for the '08 squad.
The 2008 staff will also
include Brady Williams,
who will join the team fol-
lowing a coaching stint with
the Columbus squad; R.C.
Lichtenstein, who will
return for his second sea-
son as the squad's pitching
coach and trainer Joel
Smith, who will return for
his second season in Vero
Beach, as well.
Vero Beach Devil Rays co-


general manager Katie
Siegfried is looking forward
to the 2008 season.
"It is very exciting to see
such an experienced staff
on board," said
Siegfried. "Hopefully they
will continue their success
and bring a championship
to Vero Beach this year."
Jim Morrison, is entering
his second year in the Rays
organization and, has been
coaching at the minor
league level since 2000. He
enjoyed a 15-year playing
career, including 12 major
league seasons with the
Phillies, White Sox, Pirates,
Tigers and Braves before
retiring in 1988.
Last season Morrison led
the Columbus Catfish to the
South Atlantic League title,
as the squad swept West
Virginia in three games in
the SAL Championship


Series.
Brady Williams, son of
current Phillies bench
coach Jimmy Williams, will
see hisz third season as
coach in the Rays organiza-
tion in 2008, and first sea-
son with the Vero Beach
squad. Williams was select-
ed by the Red Sox in the
45th round of the 1999 June
Draft and played six sea-
sons of minor league base-
ball with Boston, Minneso-
ta, Tampa Bay and the
Chicago Cubs organiza-
tions before joining the
coaching ranks for his first
season in 2006.
R.C Lichtenstein enters
his fourth season with the
Rays organization, and sec-
ond with the Vero Beach
Devil Rays. The 2008 season
marks Lichtenstein's 14th in
professional baseball as a


coach or manager.
Joel Smith returns to Vero
Beach for his second season
with the Devil Rays, and
fifth as a part of the Rays
organization. Smith
interned with the Rays in
minor league Spring Train-
ing in 2003, then spent a
season with the Tampa Yan-
kees of the Florida State
League, before entering
into full-time service in the
Tampa Bay organization.
The Vero Beach Devil
Rays are the Class-A
Advanced affiliate of the
Tampa Bay Rays and play at
historic Holman Stadium in
Vero Beach. In 2007 the
Devil Rays posted a 59-79
record in the Florida State
League. The team was sec-
ond in the league with 105
home runs and the pitching
staff led the league with
eight complete games.


Year
From page BI1


Brantley walked away with
the win. The loss proved to
be a motivating factor for
Vero Beach, as the team
dominated the competi-
tion for most of the rest of
the season, along the way
avenging the only loss
from the previous season
to Kent Denver.
The team's run through
the playoffs was equally


impressive, as the Indians
outscored the opposition
86-24 in winning the dis-
trict and state champi-
onships once again.
The state title match fea-
tured Vero Beach and Lake
Brantley once again, only
this time the Patriots
proved to be no match for
the Indians, who came
away with a 19-10 win.

This season with the
return of its three fresh-
men phenoms, as well as a
solid feeder system in
place, a third consecutive
championship is not out
of the question.
1.Jensen Beach nets
hoops crown While the
accomplishment of the
Jensen Beach volleyball
team might have warrant-
ed the top spot, its own
school's basketball team
upstaged them by over
eight months, winning the
program's first state cham-
pionship and earning the
top spot in our count-
down.
The Lady Falcons
wrapped up an incredible
27-4 season with a Class
4A title as a result of a 47-
33 win over Dunbar.
Senior LaToya King led the
way with 17 points and
eight steals, garnering her
the tournament's Most
Valuable Player.
King and the Falcons
started the season off
strong, winning 11 in a
row before losing four of
five games, mostly to
nationally ranked out-of-
state teams.
Being put through the
fire helped the Falcons, as
it defeated defending state


champion Astronaut -
the team that ousted
Jensen Beach in the
regional finals a year earli-
er in the regional quar-
terfinals.
From there, Jensen
Beach handled Suncoast
45-32 to advance to the
school's first Final Four.
The squad had its hands
full in the state semifinal,
watching a 13-point lead
over Bishop Moore turn
into a Jensen Beach deficit
in the final minutes of the
game.
The Falcons would pull
out a 48-43 win to advance
to the title game where it
came away with crown.
Not surprisingly several
members of the team also
played on the volleyball
squad, including Benzio,
Leyna and Lexis Lloyd and
Nicole Teplitz, bringing a
discipline and dedication
to the hardwood.
So far, the 2007-08 sea-
son has mirrored the state
title run, as the Falcons
have started 9-0, most
recently defeating Bayside
to claim the Space Coast
Christmas Invitational
Championship.
That's all for our count-

Binks Forest has been renovated well


Imagine how you would
look if you had spent the
past five years without
brushing your hair, shaving,
trimming your nails or
changing your clothes.
Not a pretty sight for the
mind's eye.
Now imagine the same for a
golf course.
Since 2002, Binks Forest
Golf Club inWellington sat
unattended and uncared for.
Then in February, Aquila
Property bought the course
and decided to resurrect the
once-proud facility. What I
witnessed at the November
re-grand opening is a
fantastic reclamation of a
beautiful track.
Raising the course from the
flames of neglect was not an
easy task, but the men and
women of Aquila and
KemperSports management
rolled up their sleeves and
turned what had become 18
fields of weeds, overgrown
grass and wild flowers into a
splendid golf course once
again.
The company's partners live
inWellington and the
surrounding communities,
their children have graduated
from and attend local
schools, and they've watched
for years, along with the rest
of us, as this beautiful course
fell into disrepair.
The residents of Binks
Forest and the greater
Wellington community
deserve a first-class golf
course and club.With care
and resourcefulness Aquila
has accomplished just that.
"We are confident that we
have the right team in place
to execute Binks Forest's
transformation and return to
greatness," said Jordan C.
Paul, chairman ofAquila. "We
plan to bring a new and
improved jewel back to
Wellington."


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


Gene Bates, one of the
original architects, along with
Johnny Miller, was charged
with modernizing the
features and playability of
Binks Forest, while preserving
the integrity of the course's
original design.
When the course initially
opened in 1990 it was
heralded for its rich foliage,
heavily forested terrain and
North Carolina feel. When
work to restore and renovate
the course began, keeping
those traits, while tweaking
the course for the demands of
today's golfers, was atop the
list.
I never had the pleasure of
playing the course prior to its
closing. I knew that the
course was carved from a
forest of pines and wound
through a beautiful develop-
ment I was thinking "nar-
row," but soon found that this
is not the case here.
Homes are set well back
from the fairways and greens.
Drives that miss the fairways
are not gobbled up by fences,
ponds or patios. Instead you
have to deal with beautiful
trees to negotiate your way
toward the hole or back to the
fairway.
The course plays to a par of


72 with four sets of tees.
Better players can tackle the
course from as far back as
7,174 yards. The rest of us
have choices of 6,626, 5,999 or
5,268 yards.
Binks Forest begins with a
short par-4, but the gloves
come off when you put the
flag back in the hole. From
here, golfers are tested with a
difficult par-5 and a long,
beautiful par three. The front
nine ends with the longest
par-4 that I have ever played.
After a delicious sandwich
and a cold beverage at the
turn, your back nine begins
with the tightest fairway on
the course. Along par-4 and a
true risk-reward par-5 follow.
The par-3 13th is a monster
that plays as long as 244 yards
from the back tees. My lone
birdie came on the 14th and
one of my playing partners
had an eagle putt on the par-5
17th.
The finishing hole features
the most difficult approach
shot on the course. The green
sits at the bottom of a large
hill with the clubhouse
behind and water in front.
Picking the right club here is a

must.
Everyone in my group was
thrilled with the golf course.
There is plenty of variety on
the course. The waste areas
around the tees and along
several fairways provide great
contrast and frame the holes
nicely. We especially loved the
roll that our drives were
getting on the perfect
fairways.
"This is one of the nicest
courses that I have played in
Florida," said Fernando
Barrios, one of my playing
partners. "Everything is great.
This is beautiful."
With the accolades I heard
from my group and others at
the course, I was left to
wonder why Binks Forest Golf
Club had been left for so long.
Then, I realized it really
doesn't matter anymore.
The club and course are
back and the future looks
bright.
