INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Before voters approved a
tax break last week, local
officials were considering
cuts to government servic-
es, layoffs and other
penny-pinching measures
to pay for the property tax
overhaul.
Local governments,
which use property tax rev-
enue for public safety,
schools and other services,


are worried about the
wide-ranging impact of the
tax cut.
"Where can we do more
with less?" county finance
director Jason Brown said
last week.
All told, Amendment 1
will cost Florida cities,
counties and taxing dis-
tricts $7.7 billion during
the next five years.
In Indian River County,
nearly 70 percent of voters
approved the constitution-
al amendment. Statewide,

Indian River Green Team members Ben and Jane Scheffres spent last Saturday morn-
ing picking up trash at South Beach. Every other weekend, the Indian River Green
Team chooses another area in the county to clean. Next week, they will be north of
Jaycee Beach.


64 percent
of voters
favored
the ballot
measure.
Months
after a
first
round of
property
tax cuts,
officials
tasked


Tom White


with trimming local budg-
ets said last week that this
round would be tougher.


"Everyone is looking for
tax relief, and I believe tax-
ation should be fair,"
Sebastian Police Chief Jim
Davis said. "I don't think
Amendment 1 is fair."
Already, the Sebastian
Police Department patrols
the city with too few offi-
cers for a city of its size, he
said.
While the police force
may be able to avoid lay-
offs, Mr. Davis said the
department had to pass on
buying necessary equip-


ment, such as a $13,000
device to record finger-
prints digitally.
"We're trying to use what
we have to the best advan-
tage," Mr. Davis said.
Amendment 1 doubles
the homestead exemption
to $50,000, caps assess-
ments on rental properties
and second homes, and
adds portability, which
allows homeowners take
benefits from the existing 3

Touch-screen


voting machines


unplugg(

Paper ballots set
for Aug. 26
return

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer

INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY After less than six
years, county elections
workers pulled the plug on
touch-screen voting
machines last week, and
began readying for the
second overhaul since the
2000 election left the
nation hanging by a chad
for 36 days.
When voters return to
their precincts on Aug. 26,
paper ballots and voting
booths both scrapped
in 2002 will be waiting.
As early as this month,
Indian River County and
13 others statewide will
turn touch-screen voting
equipment over to the
state, which will harvest
electronic components or
sell the terminals to other
governments.
During the Jan. 29 elec-
tion, when voters cast bal-
lots in the presidential pri-
maries, the touch-screen
machines were rolled out


,d

for a final time. All told,;
39,898 Indian River Coun-
ty voters, or about 49 per-
cent, went to the polls.
"I think it was the
smoothest election that
we have ever had," Super-
visor of Elections Kay
Clem said,
Complaints were limit-
ed to the primaries, which
were closed to unaffiliated
voters not the voting
equipment, Mrs. Clem
said: "That was the biggest
complaint all day long."
An advocate of touch-
screen voting, Mrs. Clem
lobbied last year to keep
the existing equipment,
rather than investing in
another new voting sys-
tem.
Lawmakers disagreed,
and mandated a paper
trail for every ballot cast.
Mrs. Clem wanted to
upgrade the existing
machines with printers,
but the law called for opti-
cal scanner equipment.
Instead of voting with a
few taps on a computer
screen, voters will now
mark a paper ballot simi-
lar to a lottery ticket or the
SAT.

Mailing packages to


troops becomes


mission for volunteer


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH Not long
ago, as Frances Landrum
waited in a checkout line,
she spotted boxes and boxes
of candy canes, priced to
move.
"I'll take all of these," she
told the cashier.
Soon, Mrs. Landrum was
packing the Christmas
sweets into shipping con-
tainers alongside other
snacks and toiletries. Like
hundreds of other boxes
she's filled during the past
five years, the packages were
bound for military personnel
stationed in Iraq.
For Mrs. Landrum, a Vero
Beach retired nurse with
three grown children, the
task is part goodwill mission,


part pastime.
"The more you do, the
more you want to do," she
last week, as she dropped off
three more boxes at the post
office.
To find units in need of
supplies, Mrs. Landrum
enlisted Any Soldier, an Indi-
ana-based nonprofit that
helps match stateside volun-
teers with military personnel
overseas. On the Any Soldier
Web site, service members
post accounts of their expe-
riences, and issue requests
for items to make the harsh'
environment a little more
bearable.
Each week, Mrs. Landrum
ships her packages from the
Citrus Ridge Post Office on
State Road 60.
When she began sending
packages five years ago,


postal employees were quick
to notice the volume of mail
Mrs. Landrum sent overseas,
usually about three packages
per week.
During the holiday rush,
Mrs. Landrum sometimes
sent four or five packages
weekly.
"No one is as devoted as
Frances," said Ken Payne, a
longtime Postal Service
employee. "She is an angel."
To accomplish her mis-
sion, Mrs. Landrum starts
with a flat-rate shipping box,
and then adds books, snacks
and toiletries and other
requests items listed on
the Any Soldier Web site.
By now, she has the pack-
ing down to a science.
"If I think I can get more in
there," she said, "I dump it
out and start over."

For the last five years, Frances Landrum (foreground)
has sent care packages filled with snacks and supplies to
U.S. military personnel stationed in Iraq. Employees at
the Citrus Ridge Post Office, including Melanie Johnson
(left) and Ken Payne (center), contribute to the effort as
well, by helping her pay postage.


Typical requests include
toiletries such as shampoo
and shaving cream, snacks
and games, magazines and
puzzles to fill spare hours. To
maximize the amount of
items she can send, Mrs.
Landrum hunts for bargains
and after-holiday sales.
There have been special


requests, too.
Once, with Halloween
approaching, a soldier
requested squirt guns for a
party. Mrs. Landrum man-
aged to pack 65 of the toys
into a large box.

Journalist predicts 2008 is 'the year of change'


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH On the
eve of Super Tuesday, with
talk of change dominating
the electoral landscape,
ABC News journalist Cokie
Roberts said that no matter


whom the Democrats and
the Republicans put forth
as presidential nominees,
change is inevitable.
Democrats will nominate
either the first woman
(New York Sen. Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton) or the first


black (Illinois Sen. Barack
Obama) for president,
while Republicans could
top the ticker with a Mor-
mon (former Massachu-
setts Gov. Mitt Romney) or
one of the oldest presiden-
tial candidates ever (Ari-

zona Sen. John McCain,
71).
"This year really is the
year of change," Mrs.
Roberts told a 700-member
audience at the Emerson
Center last weekend.
"You've already voted,
which is a big relief," she
continued.
In Florida, where Mr.
McCain eked out a narrow
victory over Mr. Romney in
the Jan. 29 GOP primary,
Mrs. Roberts said the last-
minute endorsement of Mr.
McCain by Gov. Charlie
Crist probably delivered
the Sunshine State to the
Arizona senator.
For Florida Democrats,
who overwhelmingly chose
Mrs. Clinton, Mrs. Roberts
said questions about
whether the votes will
count could remain unre-
solved until the Democrats
convene in Denver this
August.
"What a story, but also
what a mess," she said.
Mrs. Roberts, 64, pointed
to weaknesses both parties
face heading into the gen-
eral election:
Republicans have alien-
ated Hispanic and immi-
grant voters with sharp
rhetoric about immigration
reform, Mrs. Roberts said.
Democrats, she continued,
are viewed as "wobbly" on
national security, the party

"The Heart Team did more than fix my heart-

they gave me afresh attitude about life."


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-from the ER, to
cardiac cath, to surgery, intensive care, the step-down unit
and cardiac rehab. They always explained what they were
doing and what to expect. Competent, dedicated and
professional, the Heart Team did more than fix my
heart-they gave me a fresh attitude about life.
The 'big fish' may have gotten away this time. But the
Heart Team gave me the best Christmas gift ever-a second
chance to enjoy my family and all that life offers.

Complications from improper eruption may result in cysts,
crowding of surrounding teeth, infections and the possibility of

SIt is not wise to wait until your wisdom teeth start to bother you.
Very often people are unaware of problems with their wisdom
S teeth because they experience few or no symptoms.
S To prevent these problems, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
often recommend that patients have their wisdom teeth removed
before problems occur, preferably during young adulthood when
Teeth roots are small and chances of complications are minimal.
The best way to determine if your teeth are likely to cause prob-
lems is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Colgan.

that would "cut and run" to
end the Iraq war.
Throughout the primary
season, candidates have
been "playing to the weak-
nesses that are there within
each party," Mrs. Roberts
said.
"They need it to be over
soon."
But for Democrats, the
nomination race could
stretch through the spring.
"The fight could go on,"
Mrs. Roberts said. "The del-
egates add up."
Endorsements and surro-
gates have also reshaped
the drawn-out primary sea-
son, Mrs. Roberts said.
Mr. Obama deployed

knack for "dazzling" voters
during her first Senate race,
Mrs. Clinton left many puz-
zled. During that race eight
years ago, Mrs. Roberts
spent a day with Mrs. Clin-
ton on the campaign trail.
After Mrs. Clinton left
campaign events, voters
often asked Mrs. Roberts
why the first lady had not
divorced then-President
Clinton, whose marital infi-
delity ultimately led to
scandal and impeachment.
"I would have killed him,

you would have been
dead."
During the questions
that followed Mrs. Roberts'
hourlong speech, an audi-
ence member asked what
question Mrs. Roberts
would pose to the two pres-
idential candidates during
the first debate.
Mrs. Roberts, who has
moderated dozens of
debates, laughed, saying it
was "impossible" to receive
a straight answer.
"They basically just give
you their speeches no mat-
ter what you ask them," she
said.
Though Mrs. Roberts
eschewed making predic-
tions about the nominees
and the eventual winner,
she said the GOP faces an
uphill struggle due to Presi-
dent Bush's low. job-
approval ratings and dis-
satisfaction about the state
of the country.
But electoral fortunes
could change just as swiftly
for the Democrats, Mrs.
Roberts cautioned: "The
Democrats could blow it.
They're good at that."

Getting warmer: Students



tackle climate change


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH As Vero
Beach High School stu-
dents tackled an inconven-
ient truth last week, gov-
ernment officials told
teenagers about local
efforts to curb climate
change.
VBHS joined with more
than 1,700 schools across
the country to participate
in the Focus the Nation
teach-in, a national move-
ment to .bring together
high- chooil d tniveirsir


students to combat global
warming.
"These are issues you
need to start talking about
today because you are the
leaders of tomorrow,"
VBHS Principal Jane Hud-
son told students during
the Jan. 31 event.
During the 90-minute
event, students watched a
Web cast that included
messages from scientists,
business leaders and
politicians, including Gov.
SCharlie Crist and Florida
Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Orlan-
do. T ,:


Mr. Crist, who warned
that Florida is "particularly
vulnerable to the threat of
climate change," said
green technologies could
boost the state economy.
"There is truly gold in
green," the Republican
governor said.
Howard White, a chem-
istry teacher, organized the
event at VBHS.
"I thought it would be a
great chance for the kids to
interact" with elected offi-
cials, he said. Mr. White,

"This is just the start,"
Mr. White said.
After the event, students
offered ideas for reducing
energy consumption at

Carbon monoxide could
be culprit in three deaths

VERO BEACH A preliminary report indicated that
carbon monoxide poisoning caused the death of a 29-
year-old woman and her two young daughters last week.
A preliminary report from the District 19 Medical
Examiner's Office said 10-year-old Alexia Parker and her
sister, 11-year-old Reyona Parker, both died from carbon
monoxide.
Carbon monoxide was also suspected in the death of
their mother, Yolanda Elaine McLoud McGriff, 29. A
medical report on her death was scheduled to be
released Monday. Results were not available by press
time.
On Feb. 1, at 1:50 p.m., the Indian River County Sher-
iff's Office and Indian River County Fire Rescue were
notified about a person found dead at 343 Seventh Court
S.W., near Old Dixie Highway in Vero Beach.
Deputies discovered that a generator inside the house
was left running, but was out of gas. The generator had
been set up as a power source because municipal power
was shut off to the residence during the early evening
Jan. 31, according to a Sheriff's Office news release.

Giuliani visits Vero, ends
bid after third-place finish

VERO BEACH Former GOP candidate Rudy Giuliani
became the first major presidential contender to visit
Vero Beach last week, but he abandoned his bid days
later after a third-place finish in the Jan. 29 Florida pri-
mary.
Mr. Giuliani, who stumped at the Italian-American
Club two days before the make-or-break election, deliv-
ered his stump speech, met with voters and boarded his
campaign bus in under an hour.
"This is a very important election," Mr. Giuliani said.
"It's'going to be an election that determines our future."
"This one is going to set the direction of America for
four years, maybe longer," he continued.
Earlier that day, the former New York City mayor
stopped in Port St. Lucie for a rally at Paisano's Gourmet
Pizza.
At the Italian-American Club, Mr. Giuliani predicted
that Floridians would "send a message to the rest of the
country."
Instead, the one-time GOP frontrunner finished a dis-
tant third to Arizona Sen. John McCain and Mitt Rom-
ney, a former Massachusetts governor.
Mr. Giuliani exited the race on Jan. 30, and endorsed
Mr. McCain. Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards,
a Democrat, dropped out the same day.
Despite the crowded field vying for Democratic and
GOP presidential nominations, Mr. Giuliani was the first
candidate to stump for votes along the Treasure Coast.
Last April, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, a Democrat,
hosted a private fundraiser at a barrier island Vero Beach

Former Sebastian


mayor has eye


clerks office


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Brian Burkeen recently
told local Democrats he
wants to bring change as
Clerk of the Court. So, as the
former Sebastian mayor
seeks the post, he said he
hopes to bring new ideas to
the office, which handles
various government tasks.
Mr. Burkeen, 44, is the
third candidate to enter the
race, and the first Democrat.
Voters first elected incum-
bent Clerk of the Court Jef-
frey Barton 20 years ago; he
is seeking a sixth term this
year.
"It's time for some new
ideas, time to bring some
changes," Mr. Burkeen said.
"Competition is good in any
election."
Though Mr. Burkeen said
it was too early release spe-
cific proposals, he plans to
rely on his experience as
administrator, including his
years as an assistant fire
chief in the county Emer-
gency Services Department
and his Sebastian municipal
experience. This is his first
run for countywide office.
Mr. Burkeen first joined
the Emergency Services
Department 18 years ago as
a paramedic.
In 2005, Mr. Burkeen was
elected to the Sebastian City
Council. He became mayor
in 2006, after former Mayor
Nate McCollum resigned to
focus on a new Flagler
County post.


Last March, Mr. Burkeen
was defeated during his re-
election bid.
Candidates can file for the
race until June 20.
Two Republicans are
seeking the post, Mr. Barton
and first-time candidate
Ron Daniels, a Florida High-
way Patrol district supervi-
sor.
GOP voters will chose a
candidate in the Aug. 26 pri-
mary.
Election Day is Nov. 4.
With a $1.2 million budg-
et, 'the Clerk of the Court
maintains court records,
processes civil and criminal
court cases, oversees alimo-
ny and child support pay-
ments, as well as other
court-related fees. Addition-
ally, the Clerk of the Court
serves as the accountant for
the County Commission.
For this, the clerk is paid
$115,868, an amount set by
state law.

Costly cafeteria is waste of money

I'm questioning why the city ofVero Beach has applied for
a building permit for a $465,000 for a cafeteria for Piper,
when the city doesn't even know if they are going to stay. I
think it's a ridiculous waste of money.

Stop dividing the races

Any group of people has a right to call themselves that
which is meaningful.
It is, however, a discredit to those of the Negro race to be
called "African-Americans."
I don't know where it started, but there was a time when
the "proper" terms were Negro, Caucasian, Oriental, etc.
Somewhere along the way we seemed to need to define the
Negro race with Africa. Those who came on slave ships have
been here longer than those who were white. So why now
the connection?
It started with the Emancipation Promotion under Presi-
dent Lincoln. It really didn't take hold until Martin Luther
King and Lyndon Johnson made the big step to give all of us
equal rights. It was a long struggle that is still going on. We (I
emphasize we) are a nation indivisible. Not one that is
divided between the continent of Africa (not all black) and
America that includes North/Central/South America.
It doesn't define a race that is so engraved in our country.
Once in the recent past, Negroes rejoiced in proclaiming
"black is beautiful." It surely still is.
The military uses United States on the uniform of our fine
men and women in the service to our country. We don't
honor those who have given their life as an American-


American, but a man or woman of the United States of


American, but a man or woman of the United States of
America. Let us all be one.

In response to 'What happened
to the American dream'

I understand where this person is coming from. I must
point out a few things though. Not every person who earns
more than $250,000 works very hard for his or her money.
There are some people out there that work harder for less.
Who ever wrote this comes off to me that they are only con-
cerned for their own selves and hardly seems like a person
who donates to people with needs. It would be nice to think
that we could do a straight 15-20 percent tax for everyone so
it's fair.
That is up to our politicians and so far, Republican or


Democrat, that hasn't happened yet. I think that you
should know that it is not just you out there supporting
everyone who is in need. Even my family which makes
about half of what you do has to support those same peo-
ple. I think the government is partly at fault for not investi-
gating if half of the people who are in need are actually in
need.
When I was in high school I used to work in a grocery
store and I would see people buying steaks and lobster all
on their food stamp cards. I would think to myself, they are
eating better than I do. Now that is a problem. I have been
living under a Republican's control for long enough. In my
opinion it has turned out very bad. It was a Republican that
put us into the Great Depression and it was a Democrat
that pulled us out of it. In my eyes Democrat parties work
for everyone. Don't forget that the lower and middle class
people have just as important roles in running a business.


Fairy tale endings may not be same as childhood dreams


Each Valentine's Day
for the past three
years, I have sent a
Valentine to my husband,
Roy, who has Alzheimer's
and Parkinson's diseases.
This year is a poignant
one, for several reasons.
My childhood friend,
Carole, lost her mother in
early December. Ten days
later, Carole's granddaugh-
ter, Marisa Shira, was
born. Many people com-
mented on the circle of
life, encompassing birth
and death, so close
together.
It is a reminder for all of
us to learn to appreciate
the pleasures that help


lessen the pain. I am
reminded of this often as
Roy and I live each day,
trying to laugh and enjoy
the good moments and
work around the bad ones.
Roy has begun attending
the Council on Aging of
Martin County's Adult Day
Center twice a week. He
has become less steady on
his feet and fell several
times this year, hitting his
head and sending us to the
emergency rooms. There,
he will get physical
therapy and help with his
balance.
His memory has gotten a
little shaky, and I am
hoping that being with


other people will be more
stimulating and help keep
his illness at bay awhile
longer.
Roy didn't want to go to
the center because he
doesn't see himself as
needing such care. I
understand that feeling is
quite common. We shed a
few tears, both of us, as we
wrestled with the decision.
I told him I hoped it would
help me be able to keep
him at home much longer,
and that coupled with the
physical therapy, was
enough to persuade him
to give it another try. I am
so proud of him. He
refuses to give in to his


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


limitations and remains
upbeat. He comforts me.
People have told me that
I'll have a break from


having him around. They
don't understand. I miss
him when he's not here. I
love him; that's why I
married him!
What I hope to get is a
little respite from worrying
about him. When we are at
home, I always have one
ear cocked, waiting for a
thud that means a fall.
When I have to leave him
to go out, I worry about
whether he is all right.
This way, there will be
some time when I know he
is safe.
That will be a relief to
me.
Taking this step was a
hard one for both of us. If


you are caring for a loved
one, seeif your area
Council on Aging or other
organization has an adult
day program. If you don't
need that level of care yet,
but are a caregiver, make a
call and introduce your-
self. Get into the system,
with a care manager, so
that when you need the
services, you don't have to
start from scratch. There is
always bureaucracy and
paperwork that take time.
A long time ago, I
believed in fairy-tale
endings and Prince
Charming. I got Prince

Computer files can be used with many programs


This week, I thought we
would talk about how
everything in the
computer is connected.
By connected I don't
mean by wires and other
mechanical means, but.
internally, through the
computer's filing system.
Often I hear people say
that a particular file
(picture or text) "is in my
word processor" or "it's in
my e-mail program."
That implies that the file
in question can be accessed
only with that particular
program. Not so.
Let me explain; each
program on your computer
is capable of opening
different types of files.
For instance, word
processors such as


Microsoft Word or Works
Word Processor are for
working with text files,
while photo editors, such
as Paint Shop Pro and
Photo Shop are just the
thing for working with
pictures.
The files themselves are
not stored within the
program they are stored
somewhere on the hard
drive available to any
program capable of work-
ing with them. That means
you can share files often
times with many other
programs. All you really
need to know is where on
your hard drive the files
really live.
"c:\documents and
settings\owner\my docu-
ments\filename.doc"


This is an example of a
typical file name complete
with its path on the hard
drive. The path tells how to
get to a files location on the
hard drive.
Lets take a closer look:
The c:\ indicates what drive
the file is stored on. Each
disk drive, your floppy drive
(typically a), your hard
drive (c), and your CD-Rom
(typically d) has a letter
assigned,to it. This is how
to tell the computer what
drive you are working with:
The next part of our path,
"documents and settings\",
is a folder or directory.
Just like the inanila
folders you use in a file
cabinet keep files organ-
ized, directories on your
computer organize your


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

Computer files. Each
directory is separated by a
back slash (\) and you can
have directories within
directories.
In our example, the "my


documents" folder is in the
"owner" folder, which is in
the "documents and
settings" folder, which is on
the c drive.
The last part of our path is
the actual file name.
A typical file name comes
in two parts, the name,
separated by a dot and the
extension. The name is
what we call the file when
we saved it (a fairly impor-
tant thing to note when
saving). And the extension
tells the computer what
kind of file it is so it knows
what kind of program can
open it.
Once you know the path
to a particular file, you can
access it from most of your
favorite programs.
For instance, say you got a


picture e-mailed to you and
you want to use that
picture in a letter you are
writing with your word
processor.
The first step in getting
the picture into your letter
happens when you save the
picture from e-mail. Note
the full path and file name
when you save it and you
can access it any time.
When you are ready to
import your picture, use
the insert menu (typical on
most word processors) to
load your picture. When the
dialogue box comes up
asking what file you want to
insert, type in the file's full
path and filename. Start
with the drive letter, end

RECYCLING ELECTRONICS


Don't skip over


census records

Donna Holland of Vero Beach gets information about recycling and a chance on a refurbished laptop Jan. 26 at the
IndianRiver Mall. She and hundreds of other area residents took part in electronics recycling sponsored by Keep
Indian River Beautiful and Indian River County Solid Waste. The event took in 30,000 pounds of electronics. They
also gave out 400 recycling bins.

O nce you have collect-
ed as much informa-
tion as possible on
your ancestors by interview-
ing relatives, finding pic-
tures, documents, tomb-
stones, etc., it is time to get
down to some serious
genealogy research.
One of the first resources,
that is also the most impor-
tant and easiest to find, is the
Federal census. The records
can be found on Internet
sites and in many local
libraries.
The U.S. government has
conducted a household
census in every state, every
ten years since 1790. The
census records from 1790-
1930 can be searched by the
public except for 1890,
which was destroyed by fire.
The census is kept private
and released for public use
after 72 years. They are
arranged by states and then
by counties, and then in
many cases, by towns or
districts.
Many states had state
censuses in odd years, which
can be a tremendous help,
filling in that 10-year space.
1850-80 census records
include a separate mortality
census. This was a census
listing everyone who had
died in the previous year.
This gives the name, month
and cause of death, estimat-
ed birth year and place of
birth. There are also slave
census records for 1850-60.
Many researchers ignore
these records completely, or
only look at one or two
records for their family,
assuming they have learned
all the facts they need. Each
family should be followed all
the way back through the
census every 10 years,
picking up children, parents,
brothers and sisters, in-laws
and any other relatives that
show up in the household or
neighborhood. These
records are vital in learning
activities and changes in the

family.
From 1790-1840, the
census only named the head
of the household, and gave
the number of people living
in the house.
From 1850 forward, each
member of the household
was named, with their sex,.
age, and place of birth. Each
census became more
complex, asking more
questions, adding relation-
ships, occupations, parent's
places of birth, number of
years married, number of
children given birth to, and
other pertinent clues.
Starting with the 1930
census and working back-
ward, you should look at
your family, taking down all
the information given and
looking at the neighboring
families.
Often, other family
members are living nearby,
and these need to be noted,
also. If there are other
families with the same
surname, they are possibly
parents, brothers, uncles and
cousins. This will help you
fill in and go back another
generation or even two
generations.

using natural light to illu-
minate classrooms.
Students asked about
installing solar panels on
government buildings and
schools. And VBHS is set to
bring recycling to campus,
Mr. White said.
Vero Beach Mayor Tom
White and County Com-
missioner Peter O'Bryan,
who fielded questions
from the 300-member
audience, detailed local
green efforts.
"We're starting here at
home," Mayor White said.
"Florida has a good head
start."
Last year, both the Coun-
ty Commission and the
Vero Beach City Council
adopted green government
standards, which call for
governments to enact
environmentally friendly
measures. For local gov-
ernments that encourage
residents to conserve ener-
gy and water, and reduce


landfill waste, the Florida
Green Building Coalition
awards points toward cer-
tification.
Sebastian officials voted
down green certification
last fall, citing the $4,500
cost.
At VBHS, Mr. O'Bryan
described an effort at the
Indian River County Land-
fill designed to cut green-
house gases.
Methane gas, generated
by decaying garbage, is
captured before it can
enter the atmosphere.
Greg Gilbert, a 17-year-
old VBHS senior, asked the
officials what was more
important, climate change
or the economy.
Mr. O'Bryan said new
environmental industries
could help create "green-
collar" jobs.
"We need these bright
young minds to come up
with these new technolo-
gies," Mr. O'Bryan said.


Activists blasted touch-
screen equipment because
it lacks a verifiable paper
trail.;
Susan Pynchon, execu-
tive director of the Florida
Fair Elections Center, said
new paper ballots would
allow poll workers to see
what the voter recorded.
To comply with federal
disability laws, Indian
River County will keep a
handful of touch-screen
machines for blind and
disabled voters through
2010, when all touch-
screen voting will be out-
lawed statewide.
"It's-not right to have
disabled voters relegated
to using these machines
when they're not good
enough for everyone else,"
Ms. Pynchon said.
After the 2000 election,
when ballot recounts and
court challenges held up
the outcome of the presi-


dential contest, Florida
legislators rewrote elec-
tion laws and banned the
punch-card ballots that
led to the debacle.
In May 2001, lawmakers
ordered elections supervi-
sors to bring new voting
systems online by the Sep-
tember 2002 primary.
Indian River County
paid $2 million for touch-
screen equipment, opting
for 465 machines manu-
factured by California-
based Sequoia Voting Sys-
tems.
To follow the 2007 man-
date, Mrs. Clem received
County Commission
approval to pay $329,355
toward a $672,000 voting
system that will read
hand-marked paper bal-
lots.
A $342,646 state grant
will pay for 54 Sequoia
optical scanners, one for
each polling place.


Meanwhile, the county
is left to pay for 11 backup
optical scanners and new
voting booths, training
and equipment to store
the optical scanners.
Now, as elections
staffers wait for the state
to pick up the outmoded
equipment, Mrs. Clem
said it would take months
of training to ready work-
ers and volunteers for
optical scan voting.
"We've got to do a lot
before qualifying," she
said.
Qualifying, the period
when candidates can file
for election, ends May 2
for federal races and June
20 for county and state
offices.
Florida Secretary of
State Kurt Browning is
responsible for disposing
of the touch-screen equip-
ment.
Sterling Ivey, a State


Department spokesman,
said the state plans to sell
the machines to other
jurisdictions, or hire an
electronics recycler to pull
components from the
equipment.
Critics say the technolo-
gy is useless.
Because the machines
could still be used for vot-
ing elsewhere, the touch-
screen equipment will not
be sold to the general pub-
lic, Mr. Ivey said. Eight
years ago, voting machines
from the botched presi-
dential race wound up on
eBay.
Though elections super-
visors statewide grumbled
about the voting switch,
complaints lessened in
recent months, Mr. Ivey
said.
"That's really quieted
down," he continued.
"There's nothing that can
be done."

missing, it has probably died,
but it may be living with or
working for another family
nearby.
Older children may have
married and moved away.
You may be able to find them
with their spouses.
When a father dies, the
mother often remarries. In
this case you must look for
the children, and then you
may find the mother with the
new husband and possibly
more children by him. This
also follows with the father.
Watch for a new, and usually
younger wife (nothing
changes!), and more children
by her.
Census indexes are both a
blessing and a curse.
When I started my
research, I rarely saw an
index. I searched page by
page looking for my names.
Of course, I now depend on
the name to be right there in


front on me on that index.
When it is, all's right with the
world. When it's not, it is very
frustrating.
Never assume your family
is not on the census or has
moved. The name could be
so misspelled by the census
taker or indexer, that you
can't find it.
Try changing the spelling,
or just look for first names on
the index to narrow the
search. If you don't find your
name, look all the way
through the county if
necessary. If they still don't
show up, you must consider
that they have migrated.
There is always the chance
they were simply skipped
that year, but show up in the
same place before and after.

Ask The Jeweler
How do gold prices affect you as
a consumer?
As you know from previous
columns, which gold prices have
risen to over $900 per ounce. That's
up over 40% since last year. Which
will definitely cause prices to rise in
retail jewelry.
Here's how it works. Most jewel-
ry stores purchase their products
from manufacturers, and some jew-
elers manufacturer their own jewel-
ry. Both these methods of filling their
showcases with merchandise is
labor intensive, and can cause the
price to be greatly inflated. Common
sense would tell you that the gold for
this new jewelry must be purchased
at current market prices. Add in the
labor and any other profits the man-
ufacturer needs to make, including
commission and import duty if it is
manufactured outside the US, and
this causes prices on jewelry from
conventional sources to rise 4,5,6,
times the price of gold. The bottom
line, the rise in gold prices will defi-
nitely cause you to pay more for
your new jewelry.
I have been in the jewelry trade
since 1979 and have always looked
out for the consumer and strived to
give them the best possible deal on
jewelry. Now, more than ever we are
swamped with customers both buy-
ing and selling, here's why. Most of
our jewelry, including diamonds,
gold, precious stones, virtually
everything you can think of related
to jewelry is bought by us from peo-
ple just like you. Even if we pay the
highest possible prices for your
unwanted jewelry we can still have
room to recondition the piece to like
brand new condition and still sell it to
you for far less than anyone else,
because someone else has already
paid all of the markups of those
manufacturers and manufacturing
jewelers.
Since gold has risen so high we
have increased our purchases from
the public approximately 10 times.
We would rather sell you this jewel-
ry at close to scrap prices than
scrap them. You win. You pay less.

Citrus growers
honored for
environmental efforts

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Citrus growers who have
made environmental stew-
ardship a priority were hon-
ored last month by a
statewide agriculture
group.
At the Indian River Citrus
Seminar, held in Fort Pierce
starting Jan. 22, the Florida
Farm Bureau recognized six
citrus growers statewide for
implementing effective
environmental practices.
Golden River Fruit Co.
and The Florida Research
Center for Agricultural Sus-
tainability, both based in
Vero Beach, and Shinn
Groves, which owns groves
in Indian River and Polk
counties, were among the
honorees.
The accolades were part
of the County Alliance for
Responsible Environmental
Stewardship, or CARES,
program.
CARES launched in 1999
with the formation of the
Suwannee River Partner-
ship in North Florida. The
program aims to address
environmental concerns,
and promote economically
viable management .prac-
tices and conservation
planning while recognizing
growers as stewards.
"We feel that it is
extremely important to rec-
ognize these six growers for
taking the time and effort to
implement practices that
are environmentally friend-
ly," Florida Farm Bureau
President John Hoblick said


in a news release. "We see
their operations as exam-
ples of the steps that Flori-
da's farmers and ranchers
are taking to produce safe,
affordable and. abundant
food while being good
stewards of the environ-
ment."
CARES works in conjunc-
tion with the University of
Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences
and the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services.
Cassens Grove Service of
Fort Pierce, Latt Maxcy
Corp. of Frostproof and
Sunrise Citrus Partners
were also honored.
Each received a plaque
and a grove sign identifying
them as a grower who cares,
according to a Florida Farm
Bureau news release.
Based in Gainesville, the
nonprofit Florida Farm
Bureau Federation is the
state's largest general agri-
cultural association with
more than 144,000 mem-
bers statewide.

TRAVEL


Try a classic rail journey


aybe it's because I
am getting older,
but it seems more
and more I wish that things
were as they used to be.
You know, the simpler
times or the way we were.
I find myself saying,
"When I was your age ..."
Ugh! I've become my
grandparents.
Well, I am fortunate
enough to be in an indus-
try that brings me down
some of those memory
lanes while researching a
clients' dream vacation.
GrandLuxe Rail Journeys
brings me along those
railroads of the past.
Formerly known as the
American Orient Express,
GrandLuxe follows the
golden era of travel on its
17-carriage train. Each of
the vintage cars was in
service during the 1940s
and 1950s streamliner era.
GrandLuxe specializes in
long-distance trips in
which travelers sleep in
private cabins aboard the
country's premier, private
passenger train. You can
experience the service,
comfort, fine dining and
spectacular scenery as it
was once enjoyed by
travelers in days gone by.
Traditional rail travel is
much like a luxury cruise,
where getting there is half
ofsthe fun. A trip aboard
GrandLuxe isn't just
transportation, it's an
experience. The train
serves as hotel, restaurant
and entertainment all
wrapped into one all-
inclusive journey.
Rail travelers explore the
historical, geological and
natural points of interest
along the way. They also
get to visit some of North
America's most interesting.
ard wondrous sites. Whiile,-
aboard, you will enjoy
-gcamet meals prepared
bl classically trained chefs.
B eakfast, lunch and '
dinner are prepared to
oijder. Fine wines are
available in the club cars
with complimentary
selections at dinner.
There are five types of
sleeping compartments:
vintage Pullman, with
upper and lower berths;
single sleeper, with a lower

berth; parlor suite, with
two lower berths and an
extra upper berth (sleeps
three); deluxe suite, with
two lower berths and a
private shower; and
presidential suite, a
double-size compartment
with two lower berths and
a private shower.
All cabins feature a
private toilet and wash-
basin, while each sleeping
car offers a comfortable
showroom down the hall.
Plush terry robes are
provided for travelers' use.
Package prices start at
$1,599 per person, double
occupancy and vary
according to the length of
trip, itinerary and com-
partment selection. The
itineraries offered by
GrandLuxe range in length
from two to 10 days with
13 different journeys.

Don't let plants get cold-weather blues during cold snaps


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


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook
live in a heavily wooded
area, use the leaves as a
protective barrier around
the base of the plants. Even
grass clippings can be used
as mulch.
By using the mentioned
materials for protecting you
plants, you are helping
recycle natural resources
and saving cypress trees,
which are rapidly being
depleted by the widespread
use of commercial products
such as cypress mulch.
In addition, all the previ-
ously mentioned materials
will degrade in the soil and
add natural nutrients that
will be beneficial to the
plants.
In order for the mulching
material to be effective in
the event of a low tempera-
ture or freeze scenario, the
material should be at least
2- to 3-inches thick, but you
should keep a margin of
about an inch from the

James Elmer

James Elmer "Jim" LeBar-
rofi, 73, of Sebastian, died
Ja,. 28, 2008, at Sebastian

He is survived by his wife
of 39 years, Nancy LeBarron
of Sebastian; a son,

ron of Tampa; and a broth-
er, John LeBarron of Valley

He was preceded in death

Ronald J. Lambert
'Captain' Ronald J. Lam-
bert, 53, of Sebastian, died
Jan. 29, 2008, at Indian
River Medical Center in
Vero Beach:
He was born in Stater
Island, N.Y., and lived in
Sebastian for 19 years,
coming from Point Pleas-
ant, N.J.
He worked for Exxon
Shipping Company for 10
years and was a member of
the Masonic Ocean Lodge
No. 89 in Belmar, N.J.
He is survived by his wife
of 33 years, Jo Ann Lambert
of Sebastian; three daugh-
ters, Jessica Hines, Jodie
Lambert and Jo Ann Lam-
bert, all of Sebastian; and
"the son he never had,"
Danny Sprague of Sebast-
ian; two grandsons, Nathan
and Braeden; two grand-


daughters, Taylor and
Andie; his mother, Helen
Lambert of Brick, N.J.; three
brothers, Steven Lambert,

Home in Sebastian.


main part of the plant trunk.
There are some exceptions
to this rule, such as citrus
trees. You should never
mulch around citrus plants
as this can actually cause
harm to the tree.
It is extremely important
that your garden be moist
prior to a cold snap. The
combination of dry soil and
cold temperatures can
cause serious damage to
tender plants.
If our area should come
under a freeze watch or
warning, take some extra
precautions to minimize the
damage to plants.
Covering plants will be the
next step. Be sure to use
cloth and not plastic when
protecting your plants.
Plastic can act like a green-
house. When the sun comes
up, the drastic temperature
change can be fatal to your
plants. Even when using


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

a feast fit for a king.


BY TULIE L. CLEVELAND
For Hometown News
A feast fit for a king at the
largest international buffet
inVero Beach is a perfect
description of what you
will find at Chef Lin's Asian
Buffet at 1850 U.S. 1 inVero
Beach.
The four buffet tables,
three of them two-sided,
the sushi bar, the Mongo-
lian grill and barbecue grill
boast more than 200 items
daily.
We made our reservations
for 7 p.m. on a Saturday
night and the parking lot
was full. It is recommended
that you make reservations
for this delightful buffet.
The popularity of Chef Lin's
is growing rapidly and even
though the normal wait
isn't long, reservations do
make things easier for you
and the staff.
The salad table carried
everything from fruit salad
to cream puffs. There were
slices of fresh watermelon,

to pull you down. Sometimes you have
to show patience with others who
aren't as intuitive or instinctual as you.
One of the main keys for your success is
to express your desires in positive ways

Respect and love given under fire

are at your best. The joy in your heart
that comes from sharing with others
-is one of your greatest rewards. It
comes from the deep well of grati-

shining wonderful light for others to

Because you never give up or quit try-

TurtleTrax exhibits to be

shown at Riverside Park


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH A preview
of the Mental Health Associa-
tion's 'Opening Doors-
Changing Lives' art exhibit
will be shown to the public at
the 2008 TurtleTrax Festival
and Art Exhibit at Riverside
Park on Feb. 23.
The exhibit will include 18
7-foot doors, seven 3-foot tur-
tles and sixty eighteen inch
cobblestones which will later
be auctioned at 'An Evening
with Judy Collins' concert and
gala auction to be held on
April 5, at Riverside Theatre.
All proceeds from the event
will benefit the MHA.


Hope, courage, balance,
play, renewal and grace are
the themes chosen for the
artistic portion of the festival's
Art Exhibit.
Six of the doors are historic
in nature, taken from a his-
toric three-story home locat-
ed in Savannah, Ga., and
donated to the MHA for this
event.
One of the historic door
artists is Paul Scarborough,
who works primarily in
watercolors and oils. Paul has
painted 'Tranquility -When
the Body, Mind and Spirit
Meet,' representing two tur-
tles rising up from the deep
blue ocean into the light,
touching each other to form


tranquility, and to heal and
uplift one another whose
spirits may be down.
Mr. Scarborough's main
occupation is renovation
work in historic preservation
of old Historical building's.
He is one of the donors of the
historic Savannah doors.
The MHA, a United Way
Agency, is the only nonprofit
resource that people in Indian
River County have for imme-
diate access to crisis counsel-
ing and support for mental
and emotional challenges.
For more information on the
artistic portion of TurtleTrax
2008, call the MHA office at
(772) 569-9788 or visit

Museum features


portrait exhibit


BY BARBARA YORESH
Entertainment writer
At face" value, it would
seem that a portrait would
depict a realistic facsimile of
someone's countenance.
And traditionally, that was
and still is true.
The art form became
particularly refined and
regarded in America at the
close of the nineteenth
century, a period in which
the "beaux-arts" and desire
for showy extravagance
were in vogue.
The Vero Beach Museum


of Art is presenting a new
exhibit to showcase that
period to the present with
"FACE FORWARD: Ameri-
can Portraits from Sargent
to the Present," which
opens Feb. 2 and runs
through May 25.
Ancient peoples drew
likenesses on everything
from cave walls to the burial
chambers and sarcophagi of
Pharaohs. Portraiture,
flourished during the
Renaissance (think Da
Vinci's "Mona Lisa").
Having ones portrait
painted was an event

Feast
From page B1


cheese and were tender and
juicy. The glazed mush-
rooms were covered in a
nice mild sauce. The
coatings on the fried fish
and popcorn shrimp were
flaky and light and the fish
and shrimp were very
tender. The portions were
more than bite size.
My husband dug into the
bourbon chicken and the
sesame chicken. Both were
enjoyable, well coated and
done to perfection. The
chicken was moist and the
rice beds were well sea-
soned and a perfect
compliment to the chick-
en. The vegetables in the
rice were fresh and crisp.
The coconut shrimp was
in a sweet glaze, as
opposed to the breaded
and fried coconut shrimp
that I am familiar with.
This shrimp was almost
like a candy instead of a
seafood product. It had a
wonderfully buttery taste
and will be one of the first
things I will get when I go
back to Chef Lin's.
The salmon was delicious


and delicate. It was a
tender steak in a slightly
sweet glaze. It is served in
large steaks and you help
yourself to the amount of
fish that you would like.
The Alaskan crab legs
were the most popular
piece on the buffet and
were the most apt to be out
at any given time. The staff
works very hard to keep
the tables all full and it is
only a short wait before
you have plenty more legs
to dive into.
I sampled a leg and it
appeared to have been
steamed without any
seasoning, which allowed
the natural flavor of the
sweet meat to stand on it's
own. They provide drawn
butter for you to dip the
meaty legs into if you so
desire.
The grills are a nice touch
and they allow you to order
other items when you
come in. When we were
there, the sign at the"
entrance encouraged you
to:order your rib eye steak
in advance and they would


make it a part of your
buffet meal.
I did not order anything
from the grill, but there
was a line of folks who did.
The food is cooked in front
of you and to your order.
One of the interesting
specials that they were
preparing was Peking duck
with pancakes.
It was a constant stream
of people in the buffet
area, the plates were
always being filled and the
serving trays were always
in a state of refilling.
Sushi lovers can delight
in the offerings of Califor-
nia rolls, Philadelphia
rolls, tuna, and many other
delicacies.
Chef Lin takes great pride
in his food and he continu-
ally monitors the buffets. If
he sees that a food is not
very.popular, then he tries
something different. If he
sees that a food is popular,
then he makes sure the he
carries that item at all
times.
Chef Lin recently pur-
chased the building at


I 'I
1850 U.S. 1 and is in the
process of getting the
buffet established. He has
had a lot of success in the
past with his restaurants
and still has an Asian
Buffet in Chattanooga,
Tenn., that has received
rave revues from diners in
the area.
Chef Lin's has a party
room that can accommo-
date up to 80 of your


closest friends and they
offer a discount on parties
over 6 and has specials for
those who wish to cele-
brate their birthdays with
them.
This wonderfully family
friendly buffet is an
excellent place to enjoy a
lot of food at a reasonable
price. There are three
dining rooms so they never
run out of room'or food!


Customers choose from a
large selection of tempting
choices at Chef Lin's Asian
Buffet.

Annual festival celebrates seafood


BY BARBARA YORESH
Entertainment writer
GRANT-VALKARIA If
it swims, floats or crawls in
the sea, chances are it will
be on the menu.
The 42nd Annual Grant
Seafood Festival is a
celebration of fresh
seafood served up by a
congenial group of volun-
teers from the Grant area.
The two-day event is set
for Feb. 23 and 24, rain or
shine, and is expected to
draw upwards of 50,000
seafood lovers, who will be
treated to an incredibly
varied menu, as well as
100 craft displays and live
entertainment.
Grant-Valkaria is located
in southern Brevard
County along U.S. 1 and
the river.
According to seafood
festival history, in 1966 the


Community Center hosted
a small fish fry hoping to
attract several hundred
patrons to make enough
money to pay the center's
utility bills.
Today, the Grant Seafood
Festival has become the
longest running and
largest festival of its kind
in the Southeast.
The festival benefits such
community projects as the
Grant Scholarship Fund
which last year awarded
$50,000 to recipients; the
Grant Library and the
Grant Historical House
formerly owned by Clara
Christensen Bensen. The
home arrived pre-cut and
ready for assembly by
riverboat from Jacksonville
in 1916 and is now main-
tained by the Grant
Historical Society.
The Grant Library's
annual book sale will be


held during festival hours
so buy a book or two to
read while you sample the
sumptuous fare.
The Grant Seafood
Festival centers around
the Grant Community
Center located at 4580
First St. just off U.S. 1.
Festivalgoers should look
for signs on U.S. 1 direct-
ing them to free parking
areas and shuttle carts.
Festival spokeswoman
Laurie Chase noted that
the two-day event is "one
of the oldest if not the
oldest seafood festivals in
the Southeast."
"It's an awesome event
and what makes it so
unique is that it's done 100
percent by volunteers. We
buy, prepare, cook and sell
the food," she said.
Seafood and all other
food are purchased using
tickets that are bought at


the festival. Most major
credit and debit cards are
accepted.
Want to whet your
appetite?
The seafood booths will
be offering a veritable
smorgasbord of delights to
please every seafood-
lovers palate. Included will
be: steamed clams, fried
shrimp, shrimp and tuna
kabobs, linguini with clam
sauce, Manhattan and
New England-style clam
chowders, deviled crabs,
fried oysters, fried scal-
lops, raw and steamed


oysters, conch fritters,
conch salad, fried clam
strips, calamari and
lobster bisque.
Do your taste buds run
more to those of a land-
lubber? Then enjoy the hot
dogs, hamburgers, French
fries, cotton candy, ice
cream and assorted
beverages also available.
Want entertainment?
More than 100 crafters
from across the nation will
be exhibiting a wide
assortment of handmade
goods and there will be
live music compliments of


Blox Electric rock blues,
Cactus Jack and the
Cadillac's, Vintage, Show-
down, Clockhand's Stran-
gle and Medusa.
There will also be live
broadcasts by radio
personalities from stations
WA1A 107.1-FM and
WHKR 102.7-FM.
Seafood Festival organiz-
ers remind everyone that
no pets, coolers or
overnight parking is
allowed.

*Get "Bugged and
Slugged" at McKee BUGtani-
cal Garden from Jan. 12
through April 13.
Imagine, if you will, a
dragonfly as big as a hawk. Or
a millipede the size of a
human crawling across a
forest floor. You would see
these unquestionably
alarming creatures for real if
you could transport yourself
back in time 400 million
years.
Well, now you can take that


ride in an entomological "time
machine" courtesy of a special
and unique exhibit at McKee
Botanical garden in Vero
Beach.
If you'd like to learn more
about how insects today differ
from their prehistoric, giant
ancestors, visit the exhibit
created by the artist who
previously brought the
dinosaur Invasion to McKee.
Gary Darrough of Lost World
Studios will premier his "Bugs
& slugs Perhistoric Insects"
exhibit for the first time.
These crawly, winged giants
roamed the earth before the
time of the dinosaurs. Their
huge size is thought to be due
to higher oxygen levels in the
earth's atmosphere at that
time.


Each recreated insect takes
several months for Mr.
Darrough to fashion and he is
putting enormous care into
assuring that each replica is
scientifically accurate.
Mr. Darrough is a self-taught
and highly accomplished
fossil collector, fossil prepara-
tion expert and liiustrator who
has worked in paleontology
for 40 years.
Families are invited to
"wrigle" their way through
McKee garden to see firsthand
these gigantic insects.
Admission for adults is 46;
$5 for seniors and $3.50 for
children ages 5 to 12. children
under 5 are free.
McKee Gardens is located at
350 U.S. 1 in Vero Beach and
is open Tuesday through


Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. and Sunday from noon
to 5 p.m.

Portrait
From page B5
depictions were an artistic
legacy to the perceived
importance of the subject in
terms of social and eco-
nomic standing as well as
professional achievement.
Although portraiture was
generally reserved for the
elite if for no other reason
than it was (and remains) an
expensive commission, the
modern day bourgeoisie
and proletariat sought their
own immortality and self-
importance through the
advent of portrait photogra-
phy.
That trend continues to
this very day as middle-
class families sit for family
photographic sessions at
local Sears's studios and buy
the packets of photo
"portraits" taken of their
children at school each year.
In the late 1800s, John
Singer Sargent became the
preeminent portrait painter
of that gilded era when
lavish and even ostentatious
displays of wealth were
favored and encouraged.
According to "In the Face
of Change," an essay about
the VBMA exhibit, Sargent's
painting style incorporated
the elements of traditional
portraiture, but also added
influences from Impres-
sionist painters and compo-
sitional elements intro-
duced by photography.
The turn of the century
brought change not only to
the calendar but also to the
fields of science, industry
and intellectual pursuits.
Social and cultural change
was also beginning to
manifest at a time when
immigrants were streaming
into this nation.
Traditional modes of art,
painting and thought were
being replaced by a modern
age that sought new
methods and ideas. Realistic
depictions in art were
transitioning to more
abstract forms.

'An Evening with Judy
Collins" tickets are now on sale
for a special concert set at the
Riverside Theatre for Saturday,
April 8, 2008, as a fundraiser for
the Mental Health Association in
Indian River county, Inc.
The gala concert will follow

launched on February 23 with
the 3rd Annual 5K Turtle Trek
Community Walk and TurtleTrax
Community Festival & Art Exhibit
Judy collins has thrilled
audiences worldwide for more
than 40 years with her unique
blend of folksongs and contem-
porary themes. The music of
artist such as Woody Guthrie and
Pete Seeger, as well as traditional
songs of the folk revival, sparked
Judy Collins' love of lyrics and the
guitar.
Ms. Collins is noted for her
rendition of Joni Mitchell's "both
Sides Now" which is in the


portraits of the past were
now being painted in a style
in which the subject was
interpreted rather than
copied.
Many portrait artists broke
from conventionally
traditional painting styles
and developed individual
techniques. Some concen-
trated on the subject
without adding any embell-
ishments or references to
the sitter's social standing.
They believed it was equally
important to capture the
person's essence.
Some began to paint
common people rather than
the scions of industry or the
socialites of the day and in
so doing, revealed a glimpse
into the realistic and
sometimes unattractive
aspects of city life.
The times gave rise to a
quest to delve into the
meanings and intricacies of
life, people and emotions.
Painters, too, were drawn
into an exploration of ways
to portray human figures
that revealed more than
merely external, physical
characteristics.
Works by portrait painters
such as George Tooker dealt
with raw emotions often
highly negative ones -then
they did with likenesses.
Abstract and modernistic
art styles gave rise to an
entirely new set of guide-
lines in the art world and
artists such as Pablo Picasso
emerged to create previous-
ly unseen artistic interpreta-
tions.
At the same time, some
artists -including Grant
Wood clung to realistic
depictions of their subject
matter. In the past, Sargent's
detailed studies were of
subjects from the elite class.
Wood's equally detailed
works were of common
people and places more
often than not from his
home state of Iowa.
If there was a stylistic tug
of war taking place between
the traditional, realist
painters and the modern,
abstract schools, then it
would seem that the edge

She herself has been
'immortalized by Crosby, Stills &
Nash as "Judy Blue Eyes."
Ms. Collins creates music that
speaks to hope and healing. She
has experienced the tragic loss of
her child to suicide.
"Ms. Collins has suffered a
tragedy in her life with the loss of
her only son," explains Kristine
Sarkauskas, president and CEO
ofthe MHA.

went to those painters who
were stepping away from
the traditional portrait style.
In a 1943 radio interview,
artist Mark Rothko declared,
S"Today the artist is no
longer constrained by the
limitation that all of man's
experience is expressed by
his outward appearance.
Freed from the need of
describing a particular
person, the possibilities are
endless. The whole of man's
experience becomes his
model, and in that sense, it
can be said that all of art is a
portrait of an idea."
Other painters, such as
Alice Neel, retained a highly
representative and realistic
depiction of her subjects,
but, through her unique
style and talent, revealed
her.subjects' inner charac-
ter and personalities.
Although he is perhaps the
best known 'pop' artist for
his Campbell soup cans,
AndyWarhol gave a new
slant to portraiture with his
images of celebrities, such
as Marilyn Monroe.
Mr. Warhol had turned a
critical eye on popular
culture and mass media
hype of the 1960s and 1970s.
Although his Monroe works
are unmistakable in their
resemblance to the actress,
they are nonetheless
repetitive images that give a
sense of a mass produced
and therefore impersonal
quality.
With each successive
decade, artists have turned
toward deeper introspec-
tion and a fuller examina-
tion of oneself as well as
society in general.
For the painter, this
broader involvement in
portraiture has enabled the
art to take on an almost
three dimensional quality in
which the artist, subject and
world at large are physically
and psychologically
revealed.

that special someone to
death and there are times
you'd actually like to put
him or her to death.
Just remember to think:
we, us, our. To be loved, you
must be lovable. It is not
your right; it must be
earned. It doesn't take long
to know what buttons to
push and not to push. Talk
about feelings, wants,
needs, everything. Choose
your words carefully, you
can never erase them.
Timing is everything and
when anger or resentment
enters the picture that's not
the time to talk. Never lose
respect for the other
because once respect is
gone, love is soon to follow.
A candlelight dinner is a
wonderful way to celebrate
Valentine's Day, especially
when eating out is not
affordable. Farm the kids


out to friends, relatives, etc.,
if possible and make
something easy.
Even take out is OK.
Just set the stage and plan
to make the evening special.
Many years ago, my steady
boyfriend and I spent the
evening of my senior prom
at the Waldorf Astoria in
New York City. It was a
magical evening as we
danced to the big band.
I vowed to someday make
that dinner for my husband.
It was many years before I
made it; he remembered
and said it was just as good
as the first time we had it.
It's quick and easy.
Since I can't remember
what the dish was called, I
simply named it Senior
Prom Steak.
Remember: Renew your
commitments.

with the Grammy Guru
Valentine tidbits
Valentine's Day piqued my
curiosity since no one
knows its true origin.
Some trace it to an ancient
Roman festival.
There is ambiguous
evidence of two early
Christians, both named
Valentine, who were
martyred on Feb. 14 in
different parts of Italy. No
one knows for sure if there
was one or two, however,
one from Rome was
believed to have been a
priest and was sainted in
350 A.D.
Some believe the day's
origin came from an English
poet in the 1300s who chose
Feb. 14 because birds
choose their mates on that
day.

Vero Beach


resident reflects


on Super career


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
'With all respects to Webster,
passion is spelled "Holmes."
former Vero Beach High
School and New York Giants
superstar Kenny Holmes is
enjoying his first season as
head coach of the semi-pro
Fbrt Pierce Fire, which is fit-
ting since that is what his
brings to the position.
"Kenny brings NFL experi-
ence to the team," part owner
Kurt Holden said. "At this level
that's very rare.
"'We're moving along quickly
with Kenny being on both
sides of the ball."
'So far this year, the Fire has
torched, its,way through the
competition. Counting its
preseason win over the East
Coast Reapers, as well as its
24-0 shutout of Lowell during
National Bowl Weekend and
its regular season opening
victory over the Orlando Rage,
the Fire are in serious con-
tertion for a Southern States
Football League champi-
onship with Holmes at the
forefront.


"Coaching the Fire, I've
grown to love it," Holmes said.
"It's my third season this year.
"Before, I was defensive
coordinator/head coach both
previous years. Now, I'm
strictly the head coach.
"Now, I have to be really
involved in the offense. If you
don't score, you can't win.
"You have to have a balance
of where to put players. When
the last whistle has sounded,
you wonder did I make the
right decision?
"Only the great ones do.
That's when you know you
have arrived. When you look
at this guy and look at his stats
and say you're not a tight end,
you're a defensive end.
"That's what a great coach
did with me."
Holmes is referring to for-
mer Vero Beach head coach
Billy Livings. As a young
player, Holmes bounced
around from position to
position until Livings took
his budding superstar aside
one day.

tially," Holmes said. "Then I
was a defensive back. Then
a tight end.
"He (Livings) came up to
me and said, 'you're not a
tight end, you're a defensive
end. Promise me, you won't


stop thanking me.'
"And I haven't."
Holmes moved on to the
University of Miami where
he became a stalwart of the
legendary Hurricanes'
defense. Appearing in 44
games with Miami, Holmes
recorded 207 tackles and 29
sacks. His play earned him a
spot on two first-team All-

Big East teams.
"That was my first choice,"
Holmes said. "That's every
red-blooded American
male's first choice.
"It was the school that had
the camaraderie and spirit
that I wanted to be a part of.
I'm a family guy and they
had the atmosphere that we
take care of our own. It's us
against the world.
"As long as I know I've got
your back and you've got
mine. That's the kind of atti-
tude that Miami breeds.
"That's the swagger that
everyone hates. They look at
us overcoming all the odds,
this tiny, tiny school win-
ning national champi-
onships.
"We believe in each other.
We carry that into football
games and into life.
"People misinterpret that.
They hate you just because
you're good.
."That just fuels the fire.
That's the fertilizer for the
Miami greats."
Holmes parlayed his suc-
cess at UM into a first-
round selection by Ten-
nessee in the 1997 draft.
"That's a feeling I wish
everybody in America could
feel," Holmes said. "It's like
the world has stopped and
is watching your name
being called and watching
some of your better plays."
Holmes quickly made an
impact, with Tennessee. His
first career start was on Nov.
9, 1997 against the New York
Giants. Filling in for the
injured James Roberson,

Holmes made five tackles
and a sack.
The following season,
Holmes continued to
improve, recording 46 tack-
les. In 1999, Holmes had
another successful year,
making 38 tackles to go
along with four sacks. It was
in the postseason that he
truly shined, adding two
sacks, seven pressures and a
forced fumble in helping
the Titans to the Super
Bowl.
However, there wouldn't
have been an AFC Champi-
onship if not for a spectacu-
lar game-winning play in
the wild card game with the
Buffalo Bills forever known
as the "Music City Miracle."
Down 16-15 with only sec-
onds remaining in the
game, the Titans received
the kickoff with seemingly
slim hopes of getting into
field goal range to attempt
the game winner. Lorenzo
Neal got the ball and hand-
ed it off to tight end Frank
Wycheck. Wycheck in turn
lateraled the ball across the
field to Kevin Dyson, who
inexplicably ran down the
sidelines for .a 75-yard
touchdown and the win.
"That is the most memo-
rable single play that I'll
carry on with me for the rest
of my life," Holmes said. "I'll
tell my grandkids' grandkids
that I was there."
Unfortunately, the Titans
fell short in its Super Bowl
quest, but Holmes perform-
ance in the playoffs showed
signs of things to come. In


---


2000, he enjoyed his finest
season in the pros, estab-
lishing career-highs in sacks
with eight, tackles with 73
and forced fumbles with
five.
After his career season,
Holmes signed with the
New York Giants as a free
agent.
"The Giants organization
is truly iconic," Holmes
said. "Along with Green Bay,
you associate them with
American football. It's like
the Yankees (in baseball)."
While all his time in prac-
tice and watching game
films had prepared him for
whatever took place on the
football field, nothing read-
ied Holmes for what he
would experience in his first
few games as a Giant the
events of Sept. 11.
"We had just got back
from playing the Broncos
on Monday Night Football,"
Holmes said. We were at the
same airport that they (the
terrorists) flew out of.
"We were at the airport the
same time the terrorists
were there. Later, I ate
something and went to lay
down and I heard a boom
and then later another
boom.
"Seeing them (twin tow-
ers) from the Jersey side and
watching those towers fall
knowing people were in
there had me shaken to
watch so many people die.
"People (the players) were
touched. We all said if there
was a draft now, we would
all go to war."

Hearing aids cannot restore natural hearing. Success with hearing aids depends on a number of factors, including hearing
loss severity and ability to adapt to amplification. A Sonus Hearing care professional can assist with the selection of the
appropriate model and options. In some locations hearing evaluations are always free.They may not be complete medical
exams and are only intended to assist with amplification selection.


Understandably shaken,
the Giants like the rest of
the world struggled to,
return to normalcy follow-
ing the horrific events. New
York returned to the field
Sept. 23, a 13-3 win at
Kansas City. From there, the
Giants struggled to maijn-
tain any consistency, finish-
ing the season with a 7-9;
record.
In 2002, Holmes helped
the Giants to a 10-6 record,
which was good enough four
second place in the NF(
East. The following season-
Holmes was on pace to have'
the greatest season of hitg
young career before an
injury forced him to the!
sidelines.
"My knee was too shot,",
Holmes said. "I couldn't go
on. 'I was having my best'
season ever.
"The first two or three!
games, I had four or five'
sacks and then this hap-
pened."
Holmes had arthroscopic '
surgery and attempted a':
comeback with the Greenil
Bay after signing a one-year
deal. Unfortunately, after'
playing with the Packers in
the preseason, Holmes'
decided to end his once-'
promising career.
"Everybody expected me'
to come back," Holmes said:
"My knee was swollen up. I'
couldn't take it anymore. I
decided to retire.
"So long as I don't run
around on it, it (knee) is
decent. It still hurts, but
being able to walk is a good
thing."
Although he isn't able to
play, his professionalism
and dedication has worn off
on his players. The Fire con-
tinued its domination of the
Southern States Football'
League with a 34-13 rout of
the Florida Thunderbirds
on Feb. 2. While his current-'
team was staying undefeat-
ed, Holmes' former team.
gave the Patriots its first loss
of the season in Super Bowl
XLII.
"I'm pulling for the Big
Blue to win," Holmes said'
before the game. "They have '
to rush guys up the middle. I-
think they have a chance to;
win."
Holmes knows a little bit
about the Giants' defense,,
having played along Michael
Strahan, while helping tutor
defensive end Osi Umenyiora,
who was drafted in Holmest-
final year with the team.
"Me and Strahan were start-'
ing," Holmes said. "I knew Osi'
was going to become real'
good.
"I still stay in touch with
them. I talked to them before
the Tampa Bay game.
"The Super Bowl is really
distracting by the way. There is
time you have to spend with
the media. Time you want to
spend with your family.
"I'll call them before (the
game). On second thought,
I want them to focus on the
game. I'll call them after
they win."
After the Giants 17-14 vic-
tory, it is a call Holmes will
happily make.
"I have to say they've
deserved everything they've.
gotten," Holmes said.

Manufactures may be


givinggolfers the shaft


with new offerings


T he biggest topic at this
Year's PGA Merchandise
LShow, and the subject of
many e-mails from readers, is
the new drivers with
adjustable, interchangeable
shafts.
Several of the big manufac-
turers are getting onboard
with the idea that golfers have
a need and desire to change
the performance aspects of
our clubs more often than we
think.
If the open market connec-
tors that I am beginning to
see work well, do not affect
fepl and prove durable for
play, we have a great future. If
they do not, and we are stuck
with one particular compa-
ny's proprietary system, it will
flop.
Callaway, Ping and Nickent
introduced their versions of
the system at the show. Each
company's driver features its
own proprietary connector,
meaningthat once you
purchase a head or shaft in
the system from that compa-
ny, you are pretty much stuck
with them.
Shafts from Callaway with
its connector will not fit a
Taylor Made head from its
system nor one from Nickent
or Ping.
This is where I see the
potential for a huge problem.
The cost to get just one driver
head and a shaft or two will
run around $1,000. Ifyou
desire to truly tinker with
different lofts and different
shafts, the cost rises steeply.
Another problem is that
none of the systems allow the
golfer to fine tune shaft flex or
orientation. Also, the compa-
nies will not sell you just the
connectors, because they


want to sell you the shafts.
This is where I begin to see
their true intentions.
The goal of the big compa-
nies and their interchange-
able systems is to take the
custom shaft business away
from the custom guys and
small club builders. They also
want to stop the embarrass-
ment of seeing their off-the-
rack drivers' performance
enhanced by simply putting
in a shaft that better fits the
consumer.
Many custom club builders
and fitters have their own
connector system, allowing
them to put any of their shafts
into any of the heads they
offer.
In fact, SMT Golf is offering
a connector for around $20
that can be installed in any
head and onto any shaft.
The cost for one of SMT's
systems is far less than the
grand the mass-market OEMs
are asking, and you'll be
better able to test any shaft
with any head and you can
tweak the swingweight, the
flex and more, all to your
liking.
Taylor Made is making its
goals pretty clear. Its kit
comes with a driver head and
three exotic shafts for $999.
The price of the shafts alone
through a club fitter would be
more than that. What this
may do is undermine the
consumer's confidence in the
custom market by effectively
giving you the head for free.
What I question is why
anyone would purchase three
shafts that are so completely
different that likely only one
will fit their swing. The
consumer is then stuck with
two shafts that will only fit


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

one company's head, making
them far less valuable to sell
or trade.
Overall, the best value in a
system from one of the big
guys is the one from Nickent.
For $479 you get a head and
two shafts. Both are USTV2
shafts, one high launch and
one regular. That at least gives
a player something to play
with. Also, Nickent isn't trying
to grab all of the shaft
business for itself. Nickent is
planning to sell its connectors
to qualified custom shops so
you can get any shaft fitted to
a Nickent head at a reason-
able price.
Personally, I think that
Callaway, Ping and Taylor
Made are taking a risky
road. They're going for the big
bucks without a product that
is technically correct at a
good price.

Q: I am looking for a
good sofa and chairs
that will hold up. I
have kids, dogs and a,
very messy husband.
What do I look for?

A: How do you evalu-
ate quality uphol-
stery? "It's the Bones"
that count. With all
the imports from
China, it is very diffi-
cult to judge how a
sofa is constructed.
Go to a "Reputable
Store". Reputable
stores do not give
40% to 70% off the
price. A good sofa is
-constructed of a
hardwood frame, it is
doweled, glued and
screwed in the cor-
ners. A coil spring is
then dropped in cov-
ered with batting. A
good quality foam
core cushion goes on
top. This foam core is
usually covered with
muslin. Our sofas
even have a coil in
the cushion. The fab-
ric you select is a very
important aspect of
longevity. A majority
content of Rayon will
not wear well, so
reserve those gor-
geous fabrics for pil-
lows or areas of your
home that are not
used on a daily basis.
