INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Across busy 27th Avenue
from Citrus Elementary
School, an outdated sign
announces a bankruptcy
auction with 88 lots priced
to sell.
In 2006, the property was
appraised for $2.4 million.
Earlier this year, Indian
River Habitat for Humanity
acquired the 25-acre parcel
in bankruptcy court for
only $885,000.

Agencies cut spending as tourism dollars shrink

Chamber, historical society would
receive less under Proposal


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staffwriter
INDIAN RIVER COUNi
--Dividing county tourist
tax dollars could be more
difficult this year, with the
main tourism agencies
receiving less funding and
other organizations facing
sharp cuts.
Adapting to declining
hotel occupancy rates and a
cooling economy, the Indi-
an River County and Sebast-
ian River Area chambers of
commerce requested about
$20,000 less for, tourism
promotion during the next
fiscal year.
Funding for the Indian
River County Historical
Society, which sought
$5,000 in tourist tax rev-
enue, could disappear.
"Everybody is hurting
very badly right now," said
Kathryn Beatty-Self, a mem-
ber of the Tourist Develop-
ment Council, which
weighed budget requests
from six organizations last
week.
After listening to nearly


three hours of presenta-
tions, board members voted
9-0 to send budget recom-
mendations to the County
Commission.
An amendment to the
recommendation limits the
agencies to aw 2 percent
increase over current fund-
ing. The measure was craft-
ed to restore some funding
for the historical society.
Members said they plan to
appeal to the Cotnty Com-
mission, which has the final
say over tourist tax dollars.
Tourist Development
Council members ranked
each agency, awarding each
up to 100 points based on
how tax dollars would be
allocated, the tourism,
impact and other factors.
Vero Heritage, which
operates the Heritage Cen-
ter and Indian River Citrus
Museum, received the tqp
ranking, while the historical
society placed at the bot-
tom.

county commissioner who

Dividing county tourist tax dollars could be more difficult this year, but the Tourist
Development Council recommended $74,000 for the Cultural Council of Indian River

Detectives: Man murdered mother, buried body


Suspect con-
fessed to
killing, but
'didn't show
any emotion'
BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- He was fighting with his
mother again, this time
over unemployment.
Kelly James Smith, 37,
recently released from a
stint in the Indian River
County Jail, told detectives
he was watching TV last
week when his temper
flared.
He was out of work, with


a drug problem and a long
criminal record. Weeks ear-
lier, Mr. Smith moved back
in with his mother, Lynn
Rose Schuler, 59, at her
well-kept house on a dirt
road in Vero Lake Estates.
Mother and son had a
history of fighting, detec-
tives said later.
On May 18, during an
argument over unemploy-
ment, Ms. Schuler stood
over her son and spat in his
face, Mr. Smith told investi-
gators.
So he shoved her into a
coffee table, according to
the arrest affidavit. She fell
backward and banged her,
head against a living room
wall. Ms. Schuler never
woke up.
Her son buried her in the


backyard.
Authorities caught up
with Mr. Smith four days
later, after family members
reported Ms. Schuler as
missing. Her son was using
her cell phone and credit
cards, passing worthless
checks and driving her 2000
Chevy Blazer, detectives
said.
Neighbors said the slay-
ing shocked them. They
called it a sad end to the
rocky relationship between
Ms. Schuler and her son.
After authorities appre-
hended Mr. Smith on May
22, he told detectives about
the argument with his
mother, and admitted to
killing her and burying her
body.
Authorities charged him


with second-degree mur-
der. Mr. Smith is being held
at the Indian River County
Jail without bond.
"He didn't show any type
of emotion," Detective Sgt.
Jim Hyde said last week, as
Indian River County Sher-
iff's Office investigators
scoured the backyard at
7945 96th Court.
Authorities said Mr.
Smith likely would be
charged with first-degree
murder once investigators
determined how his mother
died.
Deputy Jeff Luther, Sher-
iff's Office spokesman, said
the District 19 Medical
Examiner's Office was
investigating "numerous

Nature center offers bird's eye


view from newly opened trail


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
WABASSO ISLAND ,-
From a new trail, visitors to
the Environmental Learning
Center campus will be able
to peer through the spindly
branches of a mangrove for-
est, and get the same view of
the sensitive habitat as the
birds that make their homes
there.
Environmental Learning
Center donors, officials and
volunteers held a ceremoni-
al groundbreaking last week
for George's Trail, a nearly
- 1,000-foot-long boardwalk
f. named for the late George
Bunnell, an environmental
advocate instrumental in
the creation of the.Wabasso
Island complex.
"George was our vision-
ary," Environmental Learn-
ing Center executive direc-


tor Holly Dill said during the
May 21 ceremony.
"He was the single most
important person in the
development of the ELC,"
she said.
Plans for George's Trail
began to take shape in 2000.
Designers incorporated fea-
tures to provide visitors with
the same perspective as
birds that live among the
mangroves. George's Blind,
a viewing area set low near a
pond, offers a wading bird's
point of view.
An outdoor classroom
duplicates the view of a bird
that lives among the man-
grove trunks, while a plat-
form will offer visitors a
panorama of the mangrove
canopy.
Plans call for the $500,000
trail to be completed by
December, but Ms. Dill said
the project would likely be


finished sooner.
A canoe launch destroyed
four years ago by hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne will also
be rebuilt as part of the
George's Trail project.
Regulations would have
prohibited construction
among the mangroves, but
the Environmental Learning
Center was exempted as an
education facility, said Lois
Edwards, a senior permit
specialist with Coastal Tech,
a Vero Beach company that
handled project permitting
for free.
With most of the board-
walk complete last week,
about 60 people with ties to
the Environmental Learning
Center drilled screws into
wood-plastic composite
planks, and signed their
names on the planks' edges.
"I love you, Dad," wrote
Betsy Bunnell, who said the


evening event would have
held special meaning for her
father.
"It was a dream of his to
have everyone involved,"
she said.
In 1989, Mr. Bunnell, then
an Indian River Shores town
councilman, became
involved in fundraising
efforts for the fledgling
Environmental Learning
Center. When the facility
.opened on 64 acres leased
from Indian River County,
Mr . Bunnell volunteered
countless hours. He died in
2005.
"He was so dedicated,"
said his son, Dan Frasier.
Family and friends said
Mr. Bunnell's appreciation
for the environment came
from a love for fishing and
hunting.
d'"He had a repl love for the
outdoors," NkI Dll said.

Authorities arrest suspect
in Gifford shooting

GIFFORD - Indian River County detectives worked
with the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office last week to
arrest a man wanted in connection with a May 21 Gif-
ford shooting.
Detectives from the Indian River County Sheriff's
Office Criminal Investigation Unit and the Multi-
Agency Criminal Enforcement Unit worked together
to find the suspect, Tommy Morris Biggoms.
Investigators arrested Mr. Biggoms, 24, of 4545 43rd
Court, Vero Beach, at a Fort Pierce house after detec-
tives from both agencies discovered he was hiding out
in St. Lucie County.
St. Lucie County deputies arrested Mr. Biggoms late
May 21 for the early-morning shooting. He was
charged with one count of attempted murder and two
counts of attempted murder on a law enforcement
officer.
Deputies transported Mr. Biggoms from the St.
Lucie County Jail to the Indian River County Jail,
where he is being held on $550,000 bond.
Shortly after 1 a.m. on May 21, Indian River County
deputies were patrolling near a vacant lot on the 3100
block of 45th Street when they. came across the shoot-
ing in progress.
When deputies left their patrol cruiser, the shooter
turned and began firing at the deputies, who returned
fire. Deputies were uninjured.
Deputies located victim Earman Hinton Jr., 25, who
had been shot numerous times. Mr. Hinton was flown
to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne,
where he was listed in critical condition.

become out of reach for
most blue collar workers
and we feel this is the only
way to continue doing busi-
ness competitively. St. Lucie
Jewelry sees over 100 cus-
tomers per day and we have
not slowed down. The eco-
nomic conditions continue
to deteriorate and we are
stepping up to the plate and
lowering prices to whole
sale levels.
Diamond prices have
stabilized as well as other
precious stones. Sterling sil-
ver flatware has been show-
ing up more and more with
some sets reaching as high
as $3000.00 so we see a
huge rise in people selling
off these assets to pay bills.
We are also now trading
precious metals as well
because the demand is high
both on the buy and sell
side.
Hawk Levy has been in
the trade since 1979,.

IN A HURRY?
Women don't always have all
the time they need to style their
hair. Thit is where it helps to
know some short-cuts when
you are running late. If you are
among the many women who
confess to skipping shampoo-
ing when they are late, a dry
shampoo may be just the thing
to bring you back on schedule.
Be sure to apply it near the
roots and brush it through your
hair so that it absorbs oil and
restores volume. You might
also want to use a vented
brush when it comes to blow
drying your hair. This type of
brush has holes at 'the back
that allow hot air to pass right
through it. When you get your
hair styled at our salon, be sure
to ask us for some quickstyling
tips. Our job is not just to make
you look great on the day you
come in, but also to show you
how to maintain that salon-
fresh look at home. We offer
hair spa treatments to revitalize
damaged hair, including deep
conditioning, reconstructive
treatments,,' clarifying treat-
ments, and more. We're conve-
niently located at 116 South US
Highway 1, Vero Beach, and
work with men, women, and
children. Call 772-257-0770 for
an appointment.

venues next June, board
members said the econom-
ic downturn would prevent
such a large budget
increase.
To compensate for the
slowing economy, tourism
officials are' trying new
strategies to lure vacation-
ers.
Lori Burs, tourism
director for the Indian River
County Chamber of Com-
merce, said her agency was
focusing on the "drive mar-
ket" - people living within
several hundred miles of
Indian River County.
"With the gas and the
economic situation, that is
the way to go," she said.
Penny Chandler, presi-
dent of the Indian River
Chamber, said her agency
was targeting tourists
through state and national
magazines, as well as news-
paper advertisements in
major markets.
Both chambers of com-
merce recently debuted
tourism videos, which will
be mailed to potential
tourists. At the Tourist
Development Council
meeting, Ms. Chandler
screened her agency's
video, which features shots
of Indian River County
shoreline and Vero Beach's
Ocean Drive.
"It's a beautiful video,"
said County Commissioner
Sandra Bowden, chair-
woman of the Tourist
Development Council. "If I
didn't live here, I'd want to
live here."

Officials at the Medical
Examiner's Office in Fort
Pierce could not provide fur-
ther details, citing the ongo-
ing investigation.
After Ms. Schuler collapsed
during the argument, her son
did not call 911, according to
the arrest affidavit. Instead,
her body remained on the
floor for several hours.
Eventually, ' Mr. Smith
moved her body to her bed.
He planned to surrender,
Mr. Smith told investigators.
First, though, he ransacked
the house so it.looked as if a
burglary occurred.
A night after his mother
died, Mr. Smith dug a deep
grave in the backyard and
bhuied her bodvthere. ' '..:
Authorities arrested him
May 22;ifter a source agreed


to meet Mr. Smith at a loca-
tion on the 1200 block of U.S.
1, according to the arrest affi-
davit.
Investigators began search-
ing the Vero Lake Estates
house later that afternoon.
Yellow crime scene tape
encircled the house while
investigators searched for Ms.
Schuler's body, which detec-
tives said was buried 6 feet
deep.
Onlookers gathered at the
end of the street, attracted by
the hubbub of TV news trucks
and Sheriff's Office patrol
cruisers.
Christy Calloway lived
behind Ms. Schuler. Brushing
away tears, Ms. Calloway said
she had last seen her slain
neighbor several days
before.
I"it's a shock," Ms. Cal-
loway said. "I can't believe


she's dead."
Neighbors described Ms.
Schuler, who worked as a
landscaper at Disney's Vero
Beach Resort, as friendly
and hardworking.
In December, authorities
charged Mr. Smith with
grand theft, aggravated bat-
tery with a deadly weapon
and fleeing and eluding. He
was released from the Indi-
an River County Jail on
March 1, according to Sher-
iff's Office records.
After her son was released
from jail, Ms. Schuler invit-
ed Mr. Smith to move in

S: :'Wisdom teeth are known as third molars and are the last teeth
S to erupt in your mouth between the ages of 17 and 25.
* Complications from improper eruption may result in cysts,
crowding of surrounding teeth, infections and the possibility of
tumors.,
* It is not wise to wait until your wisdom teeth start to bother you.
Very often people are unaware of problems with their wisdom
teeth because they experience few or no symptoms.
* To prevent these problems, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons
often recommend that patients have their wisdom teeth removed
S 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.


Dr. Colgan has the surgical training and
experience to perform wisdom tooth surgery
safely with Ii'anesthesia to make the proce-
dure completely comfortable and stress free.

What happened to 'for the people'?

I am scared. In fact, I am frightened. I'm sure there are
many, many people who feel the same as I do. There are
millions of people just like me - the middle class.
Actually, I would describe us as the working poor. We all
work hard every day of our lives to try to make a living. Peo-
plelike us; teachers, factory workers, waiters, waitresses,
bus drivers, gas station attendants, firemen, policemen,
postal workers, and mechanics are the backbone of our
country. We're the people who truly run things. Without us,
nothing would be accomplished. Our country's economy
would come to a screeching halt. So, I sincerely believe that
it is us who are suffering the most right now. We're all suf-
fering because of the state of the economy. People are los-
ing their jobs. Families are losing their homes. People are
having their utilities shut off because they can't afford to.
pay their bills. Children are living in the dark. Their food is
spoiling. They don't have health care. insurance because.
they can't afford it. I bed each one of you to please do some-
thing to help us if you are elected president. This great
country of ours was built for the people and by the people.
Well, I think the country (the government) has forgotten
about the people.

Tough times call for tough measures

I am disabled, and I receive Social Security Disability ben-
efits. So, as a family, we mostly rely on my wife's income to
support us. If, for some reason, my wife lost her job tomor-
row we would be on the street in less than a month.
The other day I witnessed a man breaking into a newspa-
per box to steal the change. I was tempted to call the police,
but then I realized he was doing what he had to do to sur-
vive. I do not condone what he did, but I can't blame him
either.
People are going to become desperate if things continue
as they are. People have to choose between paying their
utility bills and putting food on the table. I am so afraid of
what ma, happen if thingS get worse. WPil haveto protect
my h ome ii' n'd iam il 'fi ro m u nmeone who vwil do anything to
survive? I hope to God it doesn't come to that.

Say no to gay marriage

It's sad that as a nation we are losing sight of what makes.
us what we are.
We are letting illegal aliens enjoy more rights than citi-
zens. We are feeding the world's poor rather than focusing
on our own malnourished, and now, California is giving
homosexuals the right to call their farce of a relationship a
marriage. I'm glad I don't live in California or anywhere else
that shows no commitment to what a real family is. There
has to be a limit., Not only is a black man about to run this
country, homosexuals are being given the right to marry. -
What are we coming to?

Clinton and Obama duke it out

I love the way Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are
fighting it out to the end. Mrs. Clinton thinks she can
retrieve voies from Florida and Michigan \\hen the Nationali
Democratic Committee ousted them from having a say.
The committee deserves their decision. With all the
hoops they have to go through, I wonder how democratic it
can possibly be.
First you have the vote of the citizens, and then we have
the caucus where groups.decide who has the most poten-
tial, and finally the "super delegates," who ultimately
decide: When did the citizen's vote get lost? I'm not for any
of the candidates, on any side. Mr. McCain is a bit right of
center, but I wouldn't trust him to'vote for anything that
would help this country. Can we elect no one, and start
over?
I thought it interesting that Democrats are down to
choosing between a woman and a black American. Those
who say gender or race doesn't matter are not looking at the
figures. It matters, and I'm ashamed. Hillary claims the
"hard working white voters with out education" and
Obama, by default, those who may not be hard working and
are "intelligent."
It was reported that two-thirds of those who voted in Ken-

Many people are

your computer is very
busy indeed.
Understanding that

disconcerting when, for

Sharing for after the hurrik


Every year that we
don't have a hurri-
cane, we all breathe
a sigh of relief. After
awhile, we all tend to
forget the'warnings about
preparation and safety;
it's human nature.
Many of the injuries,
illnesses and deaths that
follow a storm are not
from the storm itself.
Downed power lines,
spoiled food, unsafe
water, hot temperatures
and improper use of
generators are hazards
that remain after the,
storm has passed. Even if
there is no hurricane,
heavy rain or wind can
lead to power outages and
flooded roads. Here are
some tips to keep you and
your family safe. For more
tips, visit the Department
of Health's Web site,
www.doh.state.fl.us.
* Food safety: If you've
lost power and have any
doubt about whether
food is still good, throw it
out!
* Discard refrigerated
food if it has been at
room temperature for two
hours or more or if it has
an unusual odor, color or
texture
* A full cooler will keep
its cold temperature
longer than a partially
filled one. Pack it with


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

extra ice or freezer packs
* Thawed food can
usually be eaten if it is
still "refrigerator cold."
* Fight "cross-contami-
nation" by not putting
food orka plate or cutting
board where you have put
raw meat, fish or poultry.
* If there is any risk to
the water supply, drink
and wash dishes with
bottled water, and don't,
forget to protect your pets
with safe water as well.
* Water safety: If your
area is under boil water
advisory, drink bottled
water, but there are ways
to make your tap water
safe.
* Bring water to a full
rolling boil for at least
one minute to kill most
germs. For areas without
power, disinfedt the tap
water by adding eight


drops, or about 1/8-
teaspoon, of plain,
unscented bleach per
gallon of water and allow
it to stand for 30 minutes.
If the water is cloudy,
repeat the process. Cover
the disinfected water to
protect against re-
contamination.
* For personal hygiene,
you cankvigorously wash,
your hands with soap and
tap water. If you are
preparing food, use
cooled down boiled
water, disinfected or
bottled water, and hand
soap.
* It is safe to wash
clothes in tap water, but
dishes should be rinsed in
a bleach solution (1
tablespoon per gallon of
water) Paper goods are a
safe bet while a boil water
advisory is in effect.
Dehydration: Even if
you do not feel thirsty, it
is a good idea to drink
more water than usual,
especially if you are
involved in physical
activity like cleaning up
after a storm. For infants
and children' check with
a doctor aboutluid
intake.
Heat exhaustion: Iot

conditioning and a lot of

tab and take a look at the
CPU Usage History. This
will display your comput-
er's "brain activity" on a.
graph that is updated
every second or so. Move
your mouse in big arcs
about the screen. You can
see how hard the comput-
er has to work just to
move the mouse.
Next time your machine
is busy, and you are
tempted to swirl the
mouse around, remember
the Performance test and

*If your machine'wqs nw,)s

"swirling the mouse" can

machines still run at all,
With all the stuff they

the fupre by holding a
tree-panting ceremony
in conjunction with
Natidial Arbor Day, on

Mfre than 100 students
celebrated the fourth

students were involved in
the program by creating
posters to represent the
neeJ for trees in our
environment. Small trees

The Florida Nursery

around the state by
providing a voucher to
help pay for some of the
cost of the trees. It also
provides educational
guidelines for classroom
activities. St. Peter's

from Jimmy's Tree
Service, located in Vero
Beach, to demonstrate
how to count tree rings to
find the age of a tree.
Interesting tree facts
were reported as packs of
seeds were passed out to
all students.
The day ended with the
fourth grade class placing
the tree in a freshly dug
hole that the students
dug. The tree is located
on the north side of the
new school building.
Each teacher added a
.shovel of dirt to plant the
tree. . , . , . .

"The housing market is
always cyclical, but it never
goes to the lowest previous
level," said Andy Bowler,
executive director of Indian
River Habitat for Humanity.
Backed by a $4 million
credit line, Habitat has
bought and developed land
across Indian River County.
Donations and grants cov-
ered $3.59 million; Habitat
is seeking $2.28 million.
"We want to lock in, five
to 10 years out, the prices of
today for homeowners," he
said.
When Mr. Bowler took
over the local Habitat affili-
ate eight years ago, the
charity owned, about 40
lots. Volunteers were build-
ing four houses per year.
A color-coded chart in
Mr. Bowler's office lists lots
owned by Habitat and oth-
ers- where volunteers are
building houses. Habitat
now owns 403 lots, and vol-
unteers are constructing
new houses in two subdivi-
sions at opposite ends of
Indian River County.
Plans call for creating a
land bank of 450 lots, which
Habitat estimates will meet
housing needs for the next
decade. By 2010, the charity
aims to build 50 houses per
year.
Hoping to capitalize on
the tumbling real estate
market, Habitat recently
launched a land-buying
effort to snap up land
before prices begin to rise

Opportunity."
Habitat is eyeing land
from Fellsmere to Oslo
Road for projects. Lnd in
Winter Beach and south
Indian River County was
recently added to Habitat's
land bank as well.
Earlier this year, families
moved into Grace Nead-
ows, which will eventually
bring 68 new house'ss to
Fellsmere. Volunteer, are
building homes in Grace
Woods, a 36-lot subdivision
in south Indian RiverCoun-
ty.
In July 2007, Habitat
acquired Sunrise, 'n un-
built subdivision neir 27th
Avenue and 17th Lane
Southwest. Habita will
begin infrastructure work
before the end oftheyear in
,order to avoid seekhg new
county permits. Plns call
for 134 houses to bebuilt in
the subdivision.
Next up for Habtat is a
20-home development near
Grace Woods and Thomp-
son Magnet Schod, where
volunteers are setto begin
construction in early 2010.
"We have a bbssing in
Florida," Mr. Bowler said,
referring to available land.
"We have the capability of
doing subdivisiors."
In addition tc meeting
certain income' require-
ments, potential Habitat
homeowners must com-
plete classes on budgeting
and finance.
Homeowners contribute
300 sweat-equity hours
toward their new houses
and then pay a no-interest
mortgage on their Habitat
houses.
Habitat also cashed in
when the market peaked.
Properties have provided
a windfall for the housing
charity, .- when officials
bought when the market
was low and sold when
prices rose. But Mx. Bowler
said the goal is rt to buy
property and/ flip it.
Instead, Habitit aims to

Associate managing editor
VERO BEACH-At the Big
Time Pay Arcade, Debbie
presses the buttons on a
video game version of Keno
and hopes to get the right
combination of numbers.
But whether she wins or
loses, she said, "It's a lot of

And what makes it a lot of
fun is the atmosphere.
"They make us feel at
home," Debbie said, refer-

owns the arcade. "We've
been to a lot of arcades, but
this one's our favorite one."
Big Time Pay Arcade is run
by Paul and Linda Cyr, their
daughter, Ashley, their son,
Ryan, and Marie Plante,
Mrs. Cyr's mother.
Paul Cyr said this is the

available," Ashley Cyr said.
The arcade has a sitting
area where people can visit
or take a break from playing
games.
Linda Cyr said that cus-
tomers come back regularly
because they love the
friendly atmosphere. She
said the fact that the arcade
is family-owned contributes
to that.
Jan, another customer,
said she always feels wel-
come.
Of the Cyr family, she said:
"They're just real person-
able; they're really warm

She enjoys visiting the

Prepare now for hurricane season


W th the next
hurricane season
at hand, now is
the time to plan in case
the big blow comes our
way. It is not too early to
plan your landscape so in
the event of a storm, you
don't have to scramble for
days to get it ready. With
careful planning, getting
ready for a storm does not
have to be so draining.
The first thing you
should do before the
hurricane season is trim
all your trees and bushes.
Get rid of any foliage that
is dead or might be
hanging over your house.
If there are any dead or
weak trees, cut them down
so they don't have a
chance to do damage in a
storm.
Take a tour of your yard
and make a list of items
that would be dangerous
to leave lying around. This
list should include patio
furniture, loose garden
ornaments, small potted
plants, yard torches,
arbors and even your gas.


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook
grill. Make a list so you
know ahead of time what
you will have to move. If
you have a shed or gazebo,
you might want to add
extra tie downs to be sure
it stays put and don't wind
up in Kansas. You can start
early by limiting what you


keep out in your yard
during the peak months of
August and September. If
you own a swimming pool,
you can throw all your
patio furniture into the
pool to help keep it from
traveling across the state.
There are many plants
you can put in your yard
that are both attractive
and also seem to hold up
fairly well during a hurri-
cane.
Hibiscus, plumbago,
firecracker plant, ixoria,
and even my roses seemed
to hold up well during our
past hurricanes. You may
also want to consider
some native plant varieties
such as palmetto bush,
passion flower, azalea
bush, wax myrtle, live oak
and Southern magnolia.
Native plants are used to
the high winds that hit


during hurricane season.
They also add a natural
beauty to your yard.
If you live near the
ocean, planting becomes
even more of a challenge
because you need to have
plants that are resistant to
salt spray. Remember that
a hurricane can carry the
ocean mist far inland with
its 70 mph winds.
Plant varieties such as
Indian hawthorne, saw.
palmetto, Confederate
jasmine, society garlic,
daylily, pittisporum,
oleander and Mexican
petunia can do well in
areas where salt spray can
be a problem; Gardenia
plants can also fare well
with less than 25 percent
damage and full recovery
after one growing season.

Jamaican tour ends with modern amenities


Due to the constraints
of this column space,
I had to split this into
three issues, but I thought it
important to report on my
experience of my working
tour of Jamaica. To view the
two previous articles; visit
www. myhometownnews.net
We arrived at Breezes
Runaway Bay late in the
afternoon. It had been a
busy day and we were
looking forward to relaxing
since this was where we
were to stay for the evening.
We were greeted with a cool
drink (very much needed).
The resort was very clean,
and the rooms were well
appointed. All rooms have
balconies - some with a
private plunge pool. There
were happenings in the pool
as well as on the beach.
Although this was a large
property, it appeared that it
was compact enough to get'
to all areas without it being
a hike.
Dinner was at Under the
Stars - great food and
lovely atmosphere. After
dinner, we were entertained
by song, darice and a
comedy routine that had
sonieofthe audience

playing along.
Early the next morn
we toured the rest oft
facility before leaving.
drove west along the I
coast where we took a
climb up a steep, win<
and extremely bumpy
on our way to visit the
Greenwood Great Hot
located on amountair
overlooking Ocho Rio
the beautiful Caribbe,
Ocean with its incredi
blue waters. What we
made the bumpy ride
worth it,
The house was built
1790 by Richard Barre
cousin of the famed p
Elizabeth Barrett Brov


The Barrett Family amassed
thousands of acres of
Jamaica land. Unlike the
popular Great House at
Rose Hall, there was little
restoration done at Green-
wood.
The proprietor, Bob
Betton, was our guide
through this house. You can
see the passion he has for all
the antique furniture and
original musical instru-
ments. The 180-degree view
from the veranda, which
stretches from one end of
the house to the other, is
where you can see the curve
ring, of the earth.
he Next on the agenda was
. We Rose Hall Resort, a very
iorth large, high-rise hotel
left to located near the Great
ding, House at Rose Hall. The.
Road resort was very modern in
S design and sparsely deco-
use rated. The lobby had teak
n . furniture and marble floors.
s and The rotms were simply
an lovely. The color schemes
bly were a teal with brown.
found The hotel, although
all sitting on the oceanfront,
had the feel of convention
tin center. However, there was a
tt, large kids area with a water
oet park that consisted of a lazy
Aning. river running through two
S castles in the middle of the
)RT p0ool.
Rose Hall Resort was very
kway busy with guests of all ages.
1888 Lunch was served in its
beachfront restaurant.
Next stop: HalfMoon
NDO Resort- a beautiful resort
S with white buildings and an
Sopen-air lobby that leads
S directly to the ocean. Built
in the early 1950s by a group
hone of investors, this property
1600 has ah old-world charm
with modern touches. The
story of its inception was as
,interesting as the many
celebrity guests that have


had the pleasure of staying
there.
The five-star property sits
on more than 400 acres with
beautiful beaches and
luxurious accommodations.
The villas that have up to
seven separate rooms and
include a butler and maid.
A par-72 award-winning
golf course, the 68,000-
square-foot spa, which is an
oasis within an oasis, and
equestrian center offer
something for everyone.
The lobby features
photographs of the many
celebrity guests that have
visited in the past. One that
struck the was a picture of
John E Kennedy and
Jacqueline stooping down
and kissing little Caroline.
Beside this picture was a
note written on Half Moon
paper, and it was a last will
and testament of lacqueline
Kennedy.
Apparently, 10 days after
he was elected president, ,
they flew to Jamaica, and .
the flight was a very bumpy
ride. Jacqueline felt the
need to write this. I thought
this to be quite interesting.
The final hotel and
destination was the Sunset
Resort, an all-inclusive
resort in Montego Bay. The
resort has Rwin 14-floor
towers located on the
beach. The d6cor wasbright
and airy, and there were five
restaurants and a children's
pool area. The buffet was
large with many stations of
food.
This was a busy resort
with a variety of visitors.
The evening included a
farewell event for our
groups and included a
calypso band and full
Jamaican fare of seafood
and fruits.
Our action-packed tour of
Jamaica was wellworth the
time. It gave us the tools we
need to help our clients to
Choose their vacations
wisely. There is something
for everyone injamaica:-

From page A6


tucky didn't have a college
education.
Isn't that a shame. With
more than a remedial edu-
cation, I cast my support to
those who love our country
more than self.

Some thoughts
on older drivers

About 'older drivers;' we
are the ones that drive the
speed limit. We drive the
legal speed limit on all
roads, and so do 99 percent
of all older drivers. Read the
papers; it's the young, unli-
censed drivers that are caus-
ing all the trouble. Look at
all the markers on the side of
the roads naming all of the


young, dead people that
didn't drive the limit. If you
need to speed, go to a race-
track.

Kudos to California

I just heard that the courts
in California overturned the
decision to not let gay peo-
ple get married. It's about
time that such a progressive
state in such a progressive
country finally views all
members of society as
equals. Let's hope that the
rest of the nation follows
suit.

More on older drivers

So, drivers over 60 should


be only allowed to drive dur-
ing certain times? I guess
traffic is going too slow.
Older drivers are pulling out
in front of you? I bet you're
under 40. I think you should
find other means of trans-
portation so you don't get
upset. If you received the
one-finger salute, you prob-
ably deserved it.

Stop the stress
of the FCAT

Not only did the FCAT
stress out the children the
school systems, the results
are causing them to ques-
tion how good of a student
they are. The results came
back and it seems a whole
year of study, homework,
and attendance is dimin-
ished by one lousy test
score. When is the state


going to realize that is caus-
es more damage than good?

When do kids
learn cursive?

My grandson is in seventh
grade and can't read or write
in cursive. How many other
children in middle school
can't do this? Is it just not
taught anymore? What hap-
pened to penmanship class?

Upset about
older drivers

The person who suggested
that older people only drive
during 11 a.m. -1 p.m. has it
all wrong. That is one of the
busiest times of day. And
older drivers are some of the
most careful drivers out
there. I'm upset over this.


Garden
From page A13


When planting large
trees, you should always
keep the distance from
the tree to the house
greater than the height
of the tree when it is full-
grown. If you have any
trees that are weak or
leaning, either have
them secured or remove
them if they are within
striking distance of your
home.
Another thing to look
for are exposed roots. If
the soil has been washed
away from the roots of

Riverside Theatre selects new


producing artistic director


BY BARBARA YORESH
Entertainment writer


VERO BEACH - In the
Wizard of Oz - and after a
sometimes perilous
adventure - young
Dorothy Gale ultimately
learned that all that she
truly needed or sought was
to be found right at home.
It is unlikely that the
board of trustees of
Riverside Theatre had such
a moment of epiphany
when searching for a
candidate to replace
departing executive
director Chuck Still, but in
a somewhat similar fashion
and after conducting a
search for a worthy candi-
date, board members
concluded that the person
they wanted was already in
their midst.
Allen D. Cornell, a 25-year
employee who is Riverside
Theatre's founding artistic
director, was on May 12
named producing artistic
director and will now
oversee the artistic, as well
as business aspects of the
theatre, according to an
official announcement by
E. Martin Gibson, president
of the board of trustees.

Allen Cornell


as chairman of the search
committee, said, "Our
search firm interviewed
many qualified candidates
for the position and our
eight-person search
committee brought a few
applicants to the the-
aterand interviewed them
here. After all of that, we
concluded unanimously
that the best candidate was
someone who was here all
along, Allen D. Cornell."
Mr. Cornell's association
with the theater includes
an earlier period in which
Riverside was transitioning
from a community to
professional caliber
theater, which features
equity performers.
Mr. Cornell has produced


more than 200 productions
at Riverside Theatre and
has served as director and
stage set designer. He is the
recipient of many awards
and fellowships from the
theatrical community, and
is also a respected play-
wright.
"If was completely
unexpected," said Mr.
Cornell, regarding being
named Producing Artistic
Director.
"There was an executive
director responsible for the
entire organization. My
function as the artistic
director is to create the
programming at the
theater- it's the heart and
soul of what we do," Mr.
Cornell said.
He noted that his associa-
tion with Riverside Theatre
has spanned 25 years, and
included transitioning
from a community theater
to a professional one.
"I wasn't engaged with
the board members
directly, but I sat on the
search committee with
them and learned their
needs and they learned
what I was all about.
"1 was comfortable in
what I was doing for the
organization, but I realized

role on the artistic and
business side. The staff we
have on both sides is so
talented. It's just a matter of
delegating responsibilities
to a single point of view to
where we're going," Mr.
Cornell said.
Mr. Cornell also had high
praise for the physical
attributes of the theater, as
well as the fine reputation
it has built among other
theatrical venues.
"We have this amazing
facility. Riverside is recog-
nized as an extraordinary
place to work, and it's the
second largest producing
theatre in Florida," Mr.
Cornell said.
Mr. Cornell also praised
the local community for its
support of not only River-
side Theatre, but also many
other cultural institutions
inVero Beach.
"In this town, people will
pay for quality and they
expect quality in return. We
have to stretch dollars, and
that's where my and my
staff's roles become so
important. We're always
shopping for the best .
ingredieints to accomplish
that," Mr. Cornell said.

VERO BEACH - For 18
years, the member and
consignor artists of the
Artists Guild Gallery have


offered Vero Beach area
residents fine original
artworks in all mediums at
some very attractive
prices.
Originally located
beachside prior to the 2004
hurricanes, the Artists
Guild Gallery now makes
its home,at 44 Royal Palm
Pointe in one of Vero
Beach's most attractive and
easily accessed shop-
ping/dining/residential'
districts.
The gallery is a coopera-
tive effort of 11 full time
guild members plus
several associate members
and consignors.
While women comprise
the majority ofVero Beach
artists and gallery owners,
men with an artistic bent
were not forgotten at the
Artists Guild Gallery.
Throughout May and into
June, the gallery has
featured a special exhibit
entitled "Gentlemen of the
Gallery."
Four male consignor
artists have showcased
their works for this varied
exhibit. Jim Bridger, Jerry
Hooper, Paul Davis and
Ambrus (Andy) Diossy
have hung an eye-catching
assortment of art that


ranges from misty,
seascapes to fanciful
acrylics on aluminum that
depict wildly colorful
botanical designs.
A stunningly complex
and three-dimensional
charcoal study by Mr.
Diossy of a classic Greek or
Roman bust won the
youngVero Beach artist a
scholarship at the Angel
Academy of Art in Flo-
rence, Italy, to study with
renowned master artist
Michael John Angel.
According to guild
president Rita Sprague and
guild member Rita Ziegler,
this painstakingly detailed
work took three months to
complete. Viewing this
masterful study, it is hard
to believe that it is not
three dimensional, yet it is
framed.
Some area residents not
familiar with art galleries
might think that original
artworks are priced
beyond the budget of
average homeowners.
And while there is
unquestionably some
major and costly art to be
found inVero Beach, the
Artists Guild Gallery
offerings reveal a unique
and welcome blend of
quality art and jewelry at

There is beauty to be
found here, but also
whimsy and sass.

From page BI


Lest members of the the
public not familiar with
Riverside Theatre think that
attending a show is finan-
cially beyond their budget,
Mr. Cornell said he wants to
allay that misconception.
"Our mission is to spread
the word of what profes-
sional theatre is to the
public. So many people
within driving distance of
this building have no idea
what goes on here.
"We'll find ways for no one
to say, 'We can't afford
it.We'l find a price structure
to let everyone have a seat
in this theatre,'" Mr. Cornell
said with conviction.
To underscore his com-
mitment to that, Mr.
Cornell wrote on a pad of
paper, which he hopes will
serve as the theatre's motto:

Have we got a seat for you."
"I'll passionately try to
engage as many people as
possible into this experi-
ence. We are going to go to
the community and get in
touch," Mr. Cornell said.
Mr. Cornell's enthusiasm
is infectious and one
imagines that his staff is
similarly dedicated to that
end.
"It seems reasonable to
me that people who've
never thought about
theatre - for five nights in
a year you could mark going
down to Riverside and
make it five special nights
of the year," Mr. Cornell
said.
He also emphasized his
desire to make the theater
experience available to high
school students and spoke
about plans to offer special
student performances.
Mr. Cornell said the
theater experience has
ancient rgots in Greece
initially as a celebration of
spring and later in Shake-
spearean England where
individuals of every socio-
economic stratum collec-
tively enjoyed the dramas,
tragedies and comedies


presented on stage.
"Theater is a one, true
human experience where
the audience is sitting as a
collective soul. And the
connection between the
performers and audience is
instant in time - from the
darkest to the lightest
aspects of life - and it
carries across the stage to
the audience," Mr. Cornell
said.
He added that one must
experience a variety of
shows "to become a good
theatergoer" and Riverside
Theatre intentionally
presents "a varied menu" of
productions.
Mr. Cornell said that the
theater also enhances the
local economy.
"Our staff lives here.
Actors spend time here.
We're not lining producers'
pockets, who are then
leaving town. We produce
(our own) work, which is
tailored to this community.
We have a 700-seat audito-
rium and the second Waxlax
stage. Our creative staff is
second to none. And I have
a pride of ownership in
what we do," Mr. Cornell
said.

whimsical collection of
these artists who took the
theme "Foot Fetishes" and
proceeded to create shoes
and foot-related art
ranging from a large study
of shoes (which would be
stunning hung as a themat-
ic backdrop in any of the
local shoe stores) to rubber
soled sandals elaborated


painted and decorated and
hung as mobiles.
The gallery features art in
many genres and mediums
and art classes are also
available.

Star Scopes
From page BI


Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
There are so many things
you want to do. You are the
first one out of the starting
gate. Just be sure to set your
sights on one main goal
before you begin. Quality is
more important than quanti-
ty. When frustration sets in,
slow down, take a. deep
breath and regroup. This
second wind will move you
forward and ensure victory.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You always come through
when the chips are down.
Your high heart and strong
spirit are the main reasons
why. You are so generous to
everyone around you. All this
good plus your natural
curiosity continue to lead
you in your search for life's
deeper mysteries and mean-
ings. Thanks for
sharing these great truths.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Life is good. Why? Because
you unselfishly serve others.
You have such a generous
spirit. What you give comes
back tenfold when you are
open to receiving. Acknowl-
edge your worth, and you
will see great abundance
coming your way. You are a


fine example of living a
happy, fun-filled life. We
honor you.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
.Idealism and compassion
along with a strong sense of
duty best describe your atti-
tude and approach to life.
You can always be counted
on to get the job done right.
You amaze your friends and
associates with your creative
output. If the rest of us set
such an example as you do,
this world would be a better
place.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Your strong belief in honesty
and doing things right is the
foundation for your great
personal growth. You are
now ready to take it to an
even higher level. Dare to be
different. Let nothing slow
you down. You are a winner
with a proven track record.
With all your experience, tal-
ent and determination, the
best is about to happen.

Dinner theater to support mission to Mexico


BY BARBARA YORESH
Entertainment writer
SEBASTIAN - Dinner, a
show and an unbelievably
reasonable ticket price that
will go to a charitable cause
- sounds like an unbeat-
able combination you
won't want to miss, doesn't
it?
The Crossroads Christian
Fellowship of Sebastian,
located at 10205 U.S. 1, is
planning a fundraiser Din-
ner Theater to benefit a
homebuilding missions
trip to Mexico is June. This
two-evening event is set for
Friday, May 30, and Satur-
day, May 31, at 7 p.m. both
evenings.
This second annual Din-
ner Theater show titled


"Oscar" will be performed
by church teens who are
students at Sebastian High
School, Indian River Com-
munity College and Sebast-
ian Middle School. Adult
church members Eric and
Tammy Hurst are in charge
of the show production and
theater coordination.
Following the over-
whelming success of last
year's event, dinner theater
organizers and participants
planned an evening of fun-
filled surprises, entertain-
ment, delicious food and
prize giveaways.
In addition to providing a
tasty and enjoyable
evening for all, the objec-
tive of the dinner-theater is
to raise funds to build a
concrete block home for a

needy family in Monterrey,
Mexico, where for seven
years the church has done
charitable projects.
Last year, an area home-
builder donated $5,000,
which enabled the church
missions participants to
build a home for a family
that had been living in a
flimsy, cardboard shelter.
"We hope to do the same
this year, and our goal is to
raise at least $4,000 for
building materials," said
Ms. Hurst, church youth
leader and theater coordi-
nator.
She noted that this year's
show had a "1930s, Al
Capone" theme and the
evening would also feature
a display of antique cars of
that era.


Attendees will be treated
to a candlelight dinner and
be seated by hostesses.
Tables seat eight and reser-
vations are being accepted.
A delicious menu of
home-cooked food will be
served by wait staff and the
show production is 1 1/2
hours long, Mrs. Hurst said.
"We're planning very
much a bistro-type atmos-
phere. It's going to be a lot
of fun," she said.
Local businesses have
supported the effort
through donations of give-
away gift certificates for
meals at some of the area's
top restaurants.

John Carroll High School fans Freddy Saliva, John Parish and Cole Fancouer give the
Golden Rams a verbal boost during the 3A state final baseball game in Sarasota.


Rams fall short inbid


for state baseball title


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
SARASOTA - In the Class
3A baseball state final, John
Carroll lost to a familiar oppo-
nent.
Themselves.
Known for its stellar pitch-
ing and equally solid play in
the field, the Rams had a
problem with the latter, com-
mitting five errors in an 8-2
loss to Plantation-American
Heritage at Ed Smith Stadium
in Sarasota.
"We didn't play solid
defense," Rams' head coach


Mike Easom said. "We didn't
make the routine plays."
After getting a run in the top
of the first as a result of Her-
itage's shoddy glovework,
John Carroll gave it right back
in the bottom half of the
inning.
After Shane McCain got
Austin Yager swinging, Eric
Hosmer ripped a triple down
the third-base line. McCain
hit Adrian Nieto to put run-
ners at the corners, before
inducing Brandon Sedell to
hit a lazy fly to second.
Unfortunately, Adam
Koemer couldn't handle it,
allowing the tying run to score
before making the force at
second.
"That pop up should've
been caught," Easom said.
"That set the tone in the first
inning for the rest of the
game."
McCain recovered to get
Deven Marrero on a ground-
out, but ran into trouble again
in the third. After a single,
Nieto blasted a home run that

"Sometimes a bad
experience is better
than none at all."
Mike Easom
John Carroll head coach
hit off the top of the wall and
went out.
With a runner on second
later in the inning, Trae Good-
wyn couldn't handle Eric
Acevedo's grounder to third,
first bobbling it then throwing
it away, to put runners on sec-
ond and third.
With Andrew Loynaz up,
McCain uncorked a wild
pitch, giving Heritage its third
run of the inning.
"We don't usually play that
way," Easom said. "Some-
times guys get uptight on this
stage, especially in high
school baseball."
Like it had done all season,
John Carroll attempted a

The Nickelodeon Hotel: Fun for kids and golf for dad


I remember as a kid
how much I looked
forward to hopping in
the car and heading
somewhere on a trip. It
was with that in mind
and with just a touch of
trepidation that I asked
my youngest where she'd
like us to go on a spring
vacation. Keep in mind 4
that my children's idea of
a vacation consists of
theme parks, swimming,
shopping and eating.
The answer came
quickly from my 8-year-
old daughter, "The
Nickelodeon Hotel!"
As a parent I get enough
noise from my kids. I was a
little unsure how much my
wife and I would enjoy a
hotel that caters to kids.
.I should have never even
broken a sweat. By the end
of our weekend, the
Nickelodeon Family Suites
by Holiday Inn in Orlando
(www.nickhotel.com, (866)
462-6425) was declared
the best resort for families
by the kids and parents
alike.
Our spacious suite
featured three bedrooms,
one being the Sponge Bob
room with bunk beds,
another with a large queen
bed, and a master bed-
room on the other side
from the kids' rooms for
some peace and quiet. The
full kitchen made break-
fasts and late-night
snacking quite easy.
The best thing about the
Nick Hotel is that there is
so much to do there that
you don't even need to
leave. There are Nick-
elodeon-themed activities,
crafts, games and events
hosted by the recreation
staff all day and evening.
Everything is designed to
put the kids in charge and
to get them out of their
parents' hair.

conveniently located just a
few minutes from all of
Orlando's attractions.
With the Nick Hotel
being a truly different
family resort, I felt that,a
special round of golf was
in order. While everyone
else was enjoying Sponge
Bob, Patrick, Dora and the
rest of the Nick crew, we
golfers slipped out and
discovered our own
unique experience just up
the street at the Ritz
Carlton Grande Lakes
(www.grandelakes.com,
(407) 206-2400).
Not every round of golf
in Orlando has to be resort
golf. At Grande Lakes you
get all the pampered
treatment you'd expect
from the Ritz Carlton. The
Greg Norman signature
designed course is impec-
cably maintained, allow-
ing everyone the opportu-
nity to play golf on
tournament-condition
fairways and greens.
In keeping with the
family theme, children and
young adults 17 and under
play for free with each
paid adult round. With five
sets of tees and generous
fairways and greens,
golfers of any ability will
be able to enjoy their
round. Firm, fast fairways
and a lack of rough make
-for long drives and several

the kids hit the arcade to
play a plethora of games.
Nothing beats a great meal
and fun for everyone!
Your next family trip
should be a fun trip for the
entire family. With a


options for every shot.
Another defining feature
at Grande Lakes is the
Caddie Concierge Pro-
gram. The first of its kind
in central Florida, the
program extends the Ritz
Carlton's unparalleled
tradition of service onto
the golf course.
The program pairs each
group with a knowledge-
able, professional atten-
dant, providing a distin-
guished level of service
usually reserved for
private clubs. Designed to
enhance your golf vaca-
tion with a unique brand
of personal attention, each
Caddie Concierge offers a
host of convenient servic-
es. If you wish for a more
personal experience, you
may even have your own
personal caddie, walking
the fairways side-by-side
just like a touring pro.
After your round you can
freshen up in the locker
room and then hit the
Fairways Pub to enjoy a
tasty lunch along with a
cold beverage while
adding up your scorecard.
With all the play time we
had, my family worked up
quite an appetite. My
favorite and the most fun
restaurant in the Orlando
ar6a is Friday's Front Row
Sports Grill on Interna-
tional Drive (www.fron-
troworlando.myfridays.co
m, (407) 363-1414).
Filled with 140 TVs and
sports-themed decor, the
sports nut in me is in
heaven when I'm here.
Couple that with fantastic
food at prices a family can
afford, and you have a
winner!
I enjoyed a cold beer and
some delicious ribs. My
wife had a steak, and the
kids enjoyed salmon, more
ribs and a pizza. After
dinner, while we adults
enjoyed watching our
choice of sports e\ ents,

World's Largest Boating Retailer Presents:


Great American Boat Sale! June 6-8

Boats can be seen locally at Intercostal Marina


COCOA, FL - When the going gets tough,
the tough go boating. That's what we here at
MarineMax believe. In these stressful economic
times, one simple fact remains, boating is and
always will be the best way to escape stress and
Vpendl qitunlI) time with your family. Now, more
than eer, is the best time to get on the water.
Unprecedented Economic Times
Mean Unprecedented Deals
At MariheMax
MarineMax is the largest and strongest
boating retailer in the world, and we stocked up
heavy with new boats last fall and winter to get
ready for the big push this spring... but let's be
frank, this economic downturn surprised
everyone, including us, in its severity. So... we
have great boats in stock. All kinds of boats. In
fact, too many boats. Our overstocked inventory
is now your gain. This economic climate forces
us to offer unbelievable deals on new Sea Rays
and our other brands.
Willie Wehrman, General Manager for
MarineMax Brevard explains,"We're overstocked.
But it' such a great time to go boating. The
weather is great. The kids are out of school. And
what a bonding experience, no cell phones and no
distractions - unless sunsets count. We need to
find a way to get more families out on the water
to enjoy each other and get away from their
everyday worries.
"I knew if we held a nationwide sale that
would help, and if we offered to sell our new and
used Sea Ray, Laguna, and Meridian boats at
amazing prices, that would probably do the
trick. So, that's exactly what we're going to do,
Friday, June 6 and running all weekend.
"Sure:'Wehrman said,"selling new and used
boats at these prices at this time of year is
unusual. But this isTHE time to go boating. This


is your chance to get
Sea Rays and other
brands at low prices
and still have the
whole summer to
enjoy them. We knew
it would take great
deals to move these
boats now, and we've
got them available at
this sale."
This is your
opportunity to save
big money on your
dream boat:
* Your best
MarineMax deals
of the season


Greatprices onyourfavoriteSea Rays!
Get a Sea Ray 175 Sport foras low as $159*per month


* Up to an $800
Bass Pro Shops gift card with purchase of select
models
* Incredible factory-authorized incentives
* Sea Ray Owners Club members: stop by for
Owners Club bonus points
* Our Premium Certified Pre-Owned boats will
now be available
"Even though these prices are low, no
short cuts will be taken on what we're famous
for - the MarineMax experience!"Andy Collura,
Business Manager for MarineMax Brevard
explained. "At MarineMax, there are no hidden
charges. Even freight and prep are included.
Our All-InclusiveValue Pricing also means that
you will get what is needed to get on the water,
like a Go Boating Gear Kit which includes
everything to start boating from day one - even
a full tank of fuel!"
Collura continued, "All customers receive a
professional Captain's Delivery and orientation


to feel confident,and comfortable operating
their boat, whether they are first-time boaters
or moving up to a larger boat."Only MarineMax
creates exclusive events like MarineMax
Getaways!" (exclusive trips organized by
MarineMax so you can experience the boating
lifestyle with other owners) and classes for the
whole family. It all adds up to a total experience
you can't find anywhere else.
Sales managers have been instructed to move
all new and used boats, according to Wehrman.
"I've never seen so much quality inventory.
Financing and insurance are available on the
spot on approved credit...we'll make it quick
and easy for anyone Who's in the market for a
good boat to get one at this sale."
The Great American Boat Sale will be held
this weekend at Intercostal Marina on US1
in Melbourne between the causeways across
from Melbourne Chevrolet. Call (321) 636-3142

comeback in the fourth. With
a runner on first, Goodwyn
atoned for his earlier miscue
by smacking a single up the
middle.
Rick Teasley followed with
one of his own, scoring John
Carroll's second run of the
game. Heritage hurler Ryan
Kahn squelched the rally by
getting Mike Rolfes to
ground to short.
"We swung the bats OK,"
Easom said. "We should've
done more offensively
against their pitcher."
The score stood at 5-2 until
Heritage (31-2) exploded for
three more runs in the bot-
tom of the sixth inning to
put the game away. Again, it
was the Patriots' Nieto in the
center of the action, blasting
a long home run on one of
McCain's few bad pitches of
the night.
"I thought he did an out-
standing job," Easom said of
McCain. "His fastball was
good.
"I think he did a great job
for a junior who just started
pitching last year."
McCain (4-2) knew he was
in for a challenge, facing the
No. 1 squad in the nation, as
ranked by Baseball America.
"I knew I was up against a
good team," McCain said. "I


was trying to keep the ball
low. I didn't get my rhythm
going in the game until the
end.
"The team fought real hard
behind me. We had momen-
tum, but they were persist-
ent.
"I'm really proud of the
way we played. We were
overachievers all year."
Despite the loss, John Car-
roll finished at 24-6 and
should be in excellent shape
to make another run in 2009.
In order to make that hap-
pen, the Rams will have to
replace ace T.J. Mullins, who
pitched brilliantly all season,
accounting : for half the
team's wins.
Mullins' outing against
Keystone Heights in the
state semifinal typlified his
year, as he allowed just four
hits and one earned run in a
5-2 victory.
"Nobody thought we were
coming this far," Mullins
said. "I wish it could've last-
ed longer."
The Rams do have McCain,
as well as fellow hard-throw-
er Dom LaPorte returning,
giving hope for an encore
performance when the state
finals makes its way to the
Treasure Coast.
"We do have two good
pitchers coming back,"
Easom said. "Sometimes a
bad experience is better
than none at all."

News help residents prepare

for hurricane season


or more
than 125
years, the
American Red
Cross, support-
ed by its loyal
volunteers, has
provided relief
to victims of
disasters and
helped people
prevent, prepare
for, and respond .
to emergencies
around the Sarah Ruwe
world. From
house fires to
hurricanes, when disaster strikes the
American Red Cross is there to help.
Here in Florida, we have experienced
first hand the devastating destruction
caused by multiple hurricanes impacting
our region. Hurricanes Charlie, Frances,
Jeanne andWilma, bring back memories
of the Red Cross providing help.
In each disaster, the American Red
Cross has been there to give aid and
comfort as soon as conditions were


safe.
Our combined Red Cross efforts were
responsible for feeding hundreds of
thousands of people throughout east and
central Florida. Our generous donors
responded as well, making sure that the
American Red Cross was there not only
for hurricanes, but for disasters large and
small throughout the year.
Twenty-seven major storms brewed in
the Atlantic in 2005. We were lucky in 2006
with only 5 hurricanes and 5 Tropical
Storms, none of which severely impact
our region. We were even luckier with no
storms in 2007. Without a recent hurri-
cane, many of our residents have become
complacent about Hurricane Season.
Predictions are we will have an active 2008
season. That is why the information in
this special Hometown News and Red
Cross tabloid is vitally important to
everyone.
We are pleased that the Hometown
News has, for the second year in a row,
agreed to produce this special informa-
tional guide to surviving the most

Tips offered on meaning

up after storm


Cleaning up after a storm
The best way to clean up your yard
after a storm is to be prepared before
one hits. Make sure you have the right
tools and a good plan of action to follow.
Here are some tips to keep in mind.
Get a chain saw
Get a good quality chain, saw. Gas is
preferred over electric because they
have more power. Also, your electricity
may be out after a storm. Unless you
have a generator, an electric saw will be
useless.
Survey the damage
Before cutting trees, be sure to take a
full survey of the yard.
Confirm that there are no power lines
entangled in your work area and that
there are no large, dangling limbs that
could fall and hit you once you start
working.
If a large tree needs to be taken down,


it is best to
leave that to
an expert.
After our
last storm in
2006, most of
my tree debris
was already
on the ground
and simply
had to be cut
up and taken
to the curb.


Get at the little stuff
Once you have all the large debris
removed, cut up and at.the curb, the
next thing you should do is re-survey
your yard.
Look for other damage that may have
been hidden by the larger tree branches.
When trying to clean up small twigs
and leaves from an area that has step-

Please read the information in this
tabloid and use it wisely to make your
hurricane preparations. Keep this as a
reference; it could help to save your life
or the lives of loved ones.
Pay careful attention to the lists of
materials you will need to build your own

the Red Cross advice offered on safety to
your personal situation.
Reference the list of Red Cross
Hurricane Shelters and evacuation
routes to plan how you will react

This special Hometown News
publication is also a reminder to our
residents that the American Red
Cross will be there in the time of an
emergency. From fires to hurricane
recovery, the Red Cross is the first to
respond with relief and the last to leave.
This year, as never before, we urge you to
volunteer to help your friends and
neighbors before and after a disaster
strikes.
With hurricane season upon us,
volunteers are needed to provide
assistance with the Red Cross. Our local
American Red Cross needs nurses (LPN's
and RN's), licensed menal health
counselors, shelter workers and more.
Volunteers must go through training, so
please sign up now with your local Red
Cross Chapter.


Finally, from all of the American
Red Cross Chapters taking part in
this special publication, we urge you
to maintain your strong financial
support of the American Red Cross.
You, our friends and neighbors,
have generously supported our
efforts to provide immediate help
when disaster strikes our communi-
ties. Without-your support, in the
aftermath of a disaster and through-
out the year, it would be impossible
to provide the immediate response
that is the hallmark of the Red Cross.
For your help, and that of the

director of the American Red Cross

Forecasters foresee active season - with a catch


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer


Forecasters predict 15 named storms-
during the six-month hurricane season,
which begins June 1. Eight of these
storms will strengthen into hurricanes,
forecasters said, and three will pack at
least a Category 3 wallop, with winds of
110 mph or higher.
Colorado State University meteorolo-
gy professor William Gray, a veteran hur-
ricane forecaster, and associate Phil
Klotzbach unveiled their 2008 predic-
tions in early April.
"We foresee a well above-average
Atlantic basin tropical cyclone season in
2008," they wrote in their April 9 fore-
cast.
Facing questions about the outlook's
accuracy, the forecasters included a
caveat: "Everyone should realize that it
is impossible to precisely predict this
season's hurricane activity in early
April."
Before the start of the hurricane sea-
son, National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration forecasters also offer an
outlook. Mr. Gray, who first popularized
seasonal forecasts 25 years ago, contin-
ues to draw the most attention - even
though the accuracy of such forecasts is


questionable.
Both Mr. Gray and NOAA forecasted
active seasons for 2006 and 2007. Both
years were quiet for the tropics.
In 2005, when the Atlantic produced a
record 28 named storms, neither Mr.
Gray nor NOAA had predicted such
tumultuous weather. They had, howev-
er, predicted 2005 would prove to be an
above-average year.
Critics argue that forecasts lull resi-
dents of hurricane-prone areas into a
false sense of security. Regardless of the
seasonal forecast, the National Hurari-
cane Center in Miami-Dade County
called on residents of hurricane zones to
take proper precautions for tropical
weather.
In Florida, where much of the popula-
tion lives within 50 miles of the Atlantic
Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, fanfare and
hype accompany the annual predictions.
"We have increased our seasonal fore-
cast from our initial early December pre-
diction," the Colorado State University
forecasters wrote.
Their forecast also included above-
average chances that a storm will strike
the United States along the Atlantic or
Gulf coasts: "We anticipate an above-
average probability of United States
major hurricane landfall."

Important hurricane
season words to know
FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

With Hurricane Season 2007 upon us,
the broadcasting airwaves and neighbor-
hood talk might be filled with hurricane
terms you should know to make the best
plans and decisions for your and your
family. Your American Red Cross stresses
preparation is key to surviving and recov-
ering from a tropical storm or hurricane.
A tropical storm is an organized
cyclone with low pressures and strong
thunderstorms. Winds speeds are
between 39-73 miles per hour (mph).
When winds increase past 74 mph, the
tropical storm turns into a hurricane.
A hurricane watch means a hurricane
may pose a threat to your area. During a
hurricane watch make any last minute
preparations you need to be prepared,
such as filling up your gas tanks, obtain-
ing cash and making sure your storm
shutters are secure.
If a hurricane watch turns into a hurri-


cane warning, a hurricane is expected to
impact your area. Do not venture onto
roads when winds become strong.
Remember, cars cannot be operated safe-
ly in high winds and water. Also, debris,
fallen trees and live electric lines may
block roadways.
Hurricanes are categorized by their
wind speed in a scale of 1 fi 5. The scale
gives an estimate of how much damage
and flooding can be expected after the
hurricane makes land fall.
A Category 1 Hurricane is a minimal
hurricane with winds between 74-95
mph. No real damage is expected to
structurally safe buildings. However there
may be damage to mobile homes and
shrubbery.
A hurricane with winds between 96-110
mph is a Category 2 Hurricane. There can
be some damage to roofing material,
doors and windows. There can be consid-
erable damage to shrubbery and trees
might be blown down. Mobile homes can
also suffer considerable damage. 1

Red Cross urges residents to

prepare with a plan and a kit


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

With a potential disastrous hurri-
cane that may be as strong as a Cate-
gory 5,-the American Red Cross is urg-
ing area residents to begin preparing
for the potential of disaster now. Fam-
ilies can and do cope with potential
disasters by preparing in advance and
working together as a team. Knowing
what to do is your best protection and
your responsibility. The National
Weather Service, the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency and the
American Red Cross urge each and
every family to develop a family disas-
ter plan. The key to preparedness is
having a plan. Here are the steps to
follow to create and implement a fam-
ily disaster plan:
Gather information about hazards
that would be created by the hurricane
in your area by contacting your local
American Red Cross, Emergency Man-
agement or the National Weather Ser-
vice. Learn your community's warning
signals and evacuation plans.
Meet with your family to create a
plan. Discuss the information you
have gathered and why it is important
to prepare for a hurricane. Plan to
share responsibilities and work
together as a team.
Ask an out-of-state friend to be your
family contact for everyone to call if
the family gets separated for any rea-
son during the hurricane. After a hur-
ricane, it is often easier to call long
distance.
Have a plan for your pets - be
aware that pets are not allowed in
American Red Cross shelters. Other
arrangements should be secured
beforehand.
Take the time now to put together a
Disaster Supplies Kit. Your kit should
include enough supplies to meet your
needs for at least three days. Store

From page 9
Category 3 Hurricanes are extensive
hurricanes with winds between 111-130
mph. There is expected to be damage to
residential buildings. Foliage can blow off
shrubbery and trees and trees may even
be blown down. Mobile homes are
expected to be destroyed.
A Category 4 Hurricane has winds
between 131-155 mph. This is an extreme
hurricane where there can be roof struc-
ture failures on residences and serious
damage to doors and windows. Shrubs,
trees and signs are blown down. Mobile
homes maybe completely destroyed.
A catastrophic hurricane is a Category 5


these supplies in sturdy, easy to carry,
water-resistant containers, such as
backpacks or duffle bags. It also is a
good idea to keep a smaller kit in the
trunk of your car.
Your disaster supplies kit should
include:

gallon per person per day) and food
that will not spoil
* One change of clothing and
footwear per person
* One blanket or sleeping bag per
person
* A first aid kit, including prescrip-
tion medicines
* Emergency tools, including a bat-
tery-powered radio, flashlight and
plenty of extra batteries
* An extra set of car keys
* Cash
* Special items for infants, elderly or
disabled family members
* An extra pair of glasses
Ask questions to make sure your
family remembers meeting places
should you become separated, phone
numbers and safety rules.
Something else to keep in mind is
the value of neighbors after a hurri-
cane. Working with neighbors can save
lives. Why not meet with your neigh-
bors to plan how the neighborhood
could work together after a hurricane
until help arrives? If you are a member
of a neighborhood organization, intro-
duce disaster preparedness as a new
activity. Know your neighbors special
skills and consider how you could help
neighbors who have special needs,
such as disabled and elderly persons.
For more information regarding how
individuals and families can prepare
for a hurricane or to find out more
about creating an emergency plan or
hurricane kit contact your local Ameri-
can Red Cross or visit the American Red
Cross online at www.redcross.org.

A safe room


should be chosen

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

A storm can unexpectedly intensify during a hurri-
cane. Your house may start suffering damage. In
these circumstances, you and your family will need
to gather in a designated safe room.to ride out the
storm.
A safe room should be located in the center of
your home. The space, such as a bathroom, walk-in
closet or hallway, should be spacious enough to
accommodate everyone and have no windows. It
should also offer a quick egress should it be neces-
sary to get out.
Have a mattress in this room as well for protec-
tion in case part of the room's structure begins to
fail.
However, remain in the safe room until an "all clear"
for your area has been issued by weather authorities.
The safe room should contain an emergency supply
kit, one that includes adequate nonperishable food
and water for everyone. A first aid kit and manual also
should be on hand. The first aid kit should have
assorted sizes of bandages, sterile gauze pads, adhe-
sive cloth tape, roller bandages, antibiotic ointment,
aspirin or other pain reliever, antacid tablets, antisep-
tic wipe packages, hydrogen peroxide for cleaning
wounds, rubbing alcohol, iodine, disinfectants, scis-
sors and tweezers, and non-latex gloves.

Local environmentalists


take action


BY CHRIS ELLISON
For Hometown News


We see and hear, daily, about how
our environment is taking a beating
from carcinogens, chemicals and so
many things that have become a part
of our lives. Some laundry soaps and
dryer sheets are among the daily air
destroyers that we cannot avoid. But
what can we do?
Maybe nothing about our neighbor's
preference in soaps, but Bob and Jane


Bagaley, avid environmentalists,
found a way to pinpoint and fight one
of our breathing's worst enemies-
mold. What is mold? It's that yucky
stuff you find in your homes that
destroys your kid's health (yours, too).
Mold is sly. It hides in places you
wouldn't think of looking.
That is why Bob and Jane have stud-
ied with and obtained certification

AMER ICAOD HURRICANE GUIDE '08
AMERICAN RED CROSS


American Red Cross offers food safety tips when


hurricane or tropical storm threatens


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

If a hurricane impacts our area, you
might be cut off from food, water and
electricity for days. By preparing emer-
gency provisions, you can turn what
could a life-threatening situation into a
manageable problem. As we well know,
it is possible that a hurricane can cut off
your food supply for two weeks. There-
fore, you should prepare a supply that
will last that long.
The easiest way to develop a two-
week stockpile is to increase the
amount of basic foods you normally
keep on your shelves and store them.
Here are some tips from the American
Red Cross on planning what to do for
your food supply before a hurricane
strikes:
Storage Tips
* Keep food in a dry, cool spot - a
dark area if possible.
* Keep food covered at all times.


* Open food boxes or cans carefully
so that you can close them tightly after
each use.
*Wrap cookies and crackers in plastic
bags, and keep them in tight contain-
ers.
* Empty opened packages of sugar,
dried fruits and nuts into screw-top jars
or air-tight cans to protect them from
pests.
* Inspect all food for signs of spoilage
before use.
* Use foods before they go bad, and
replace them with fresh supplies, dated
with ink or marker. Place new items at
the back of the storage area and older
ones in front.
It is important to keep in mind the
shelf-life of foods for storage and rotate
when necessary. Foods like wheat, veg-
etable oils, soybeans, instant coffee, tea
and cocoa, salt, white rice, dry pasta,
and powdered milk in nitrogen-packed
cans may be stored indefinitely in
proper containers and conditions.
Canned vegetable soups, peanut butter,


jelly, ready-to-eat cereals, canned
fruits, fruit juices, and vitamin C need
to be used within one year. And foods
like boxed powdered milk, dried fruit
(in a metal container), crackers, and
potatoes must be used within 6 months
before replacing.
If food supplies are low...
If activity is reduced, healthy people
can survive on half their usual food
intake for an extended period and with-
out any food for many days. Food,
unlike water, may be rationed safely,
except for children and pregnant
women. If your water supply is limited,
try to avoid foods that are high in fat
and protein, and don't stock salty foods,
since they will make you thirsty. Try to
eat salt-free crackers, whole grain cere-
als and canned foods with high liquid
content.
You don't need to go out and buy
unfamiliar foods to prepare an emer-
gency food supply. You can use the


canned foods, dry mixes and other sta-
ples on your cupboard shelves. In fact,
familiar foods are important. They can
lift morale and give a feeling of security
in times of stress.
Also, canned foods won't require
cooking, water or special preparation.
As you stock food, take into account
your family's unique needs and tastes.
Try to include foods that they will enjoy
and that are also high in calories and
nutrition. Foods that require no refrig-
eration, preparation or cooking are
best.
Another option is HeaterMeals, com-
plete, self-contained meals that are as
easy as one-two-three to heat and
serve. Each HeaterMeal comes with
everything needed to prepare and
enjoy a delicious, hot meal in minutes.
They are perfect as part of a Family
Hurricane Kit because they don't
require refrigeration, and have a shelf-
life of 12 to 24 months.

Where to tune for TV


and radio coverage


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Where to tune in: The four network
television affiliates that serve the
Treasure Coast, all based in West Palm
Beach, will provide hurricane updates
in the days leading up to the storm:
*WPTV Channel 5, NBC
*WPEC Channel 12, CBS
*WPBF Channel 25, ABC
*WFLX Channel 29, Fox
In Indian River County, govern-
ment-access Channel 27 will provide
updates by the Indian River County
Emergency Operations Center as a
storm approaches.
Updates on St. Lucie County's gov-
ernment-access channel, SLCTV, can
be viewed in Fort Pierce and sur-
rounding St. Lucie County on Chan-
nel 21.
If a hurricane knocks out power, a
battery-operated radio is the best bet
for storm updates. For owners of bat-
tery-operated televisions, the stations
will provide continuous coverage
throughout the emergency.


Where to listen: The following radio
stations will also broadcast hurricane
updates as a storm heads toward
shore and during the crisis and after-
math:
*WIRA-AM 1400
*WJNO-AM 1290
*WJNX-AM 1330
*WAXE-AM 1370

ciation, a training facility certified by
the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency in the testing and treatment
of mold and indoor air quality. If you
have this health-destroying invader in
your home, they'll find it and cure it.
They don't ignore bacteria, allergens.
and staph germs that may be hiding
in the walls or floating in the air,
either.
It is interesting to watch them test
for and discover mold in places we
would not believe it could hide. Bob
tells us there are three types of mold
(not counting the other allergens and
germs they sometimes discover). The
"allergenic" gives us runny noses,
coughing and even causes asthma
-attacks. " Pathogenic" suppresses the
immune system and the "Toxic" can
cause chronic lung illness or cancer.
Bob and Jane take air samples (both
indoors and out) using an air profile
monitor. They swab samples to find


out if and what kind and how much
pollution is there. Carpet samples are
taken to discover dust mites, allergens
and animal dander. Even if you don't
have a pet, their dander can find its
way into your home on visitors cloth-
ing and shoes.
The Bagaleys admit to being proud
of the fact that they may not be able to
cure the world of environmental ills,
but they can help their neighbors,
here in Vero Beach, to avoid so much
of the misery caused by their leaky
roofs, musty air conditioners, etc.
Not being a scientist, it would be
hard to say how long this poisonous
stuff has been around, but like every
other ill, it loves being able to aggra-
vate humans...and walls...and furni-
ture, etc.

If you have more questions, call Bob
and Jane at (772)562-6913; they'll
have the answers.

Precautions to consider before, during and after a hurricane


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

As a hurricane approaches, there are
often feelings of anxiety and fear. The
American Red Cross reminds you, it is
important to know what to do during
storm watches and warnings, as well as
during and after hurricanes.
When the National Hurricane Center
posts a watch, that means there is a pos-
sible threat of a tropical storrror hurri-
cane within 36 hours.
Although it is a watch, it is not too
early to begin taking hurricane precau-
tions.
* Review all hurricane plans. Check
supplies. Continue to watch the news to
stay updated on the storm's status.
* Plan ahead. Make a decision early on
where you ride out the storm. Remem-
ber, a Red Cross shelter is a shelter of last
resort.
If you plan to board your house with
shutters or plywood, make sure you
have all the appropriate tools you will
need.
Start installing shutters in difficult
places to reach.
Fill your cars' gas tanks.
If you have propane gas service, turn


off the valve at the tank. With natural
gas, experts recommend keeping it on,
but ask your provider.
When a hurricane, warning is
announced, this means the National
Hurricane Center expects tropical storm
or hurricane conditions in the area with-
in 24 hours.
* Recheck your lists. Make sure you
have at least the minimum stockpile of
items recommended by your American
Red Cross.
* Make sure your windows, door open-
ings, and garage doors are covered or
braced.
* Reduce the water in your in-ground
pools by 6-to 12-inches. Put extra chlo-
rine in your pool. Disconnect and pro-
tect your pool pump.
* Make sure all unsecured items
around the outside of the house -
tables, chairs, bicycles, hoses, etc. - are
put away. These items can become fly-
ing missiles during the hurricane.
Clean storm drains and swales of
debris.
* Disconnect propane gas at the tank.
* Get your safe room ready.
* Bring refrigerator and freezer down
to the coldest levels.


* Clean your tub with bleach and rinse
well. Fill with water to be used for flush-
ing and washing.
Fill plastic bottles with water and
freeze them.
Charge cell phone batteries.
* Locate water valves, gas valves and
main electric breaker. Have instructions
on how to turn them off.
During the storm, make it your main
concern to stay safe. Do not venture out-
side, even if the raging winds and rain
calm down. After the "eye" of storm pass,
the weather will get dramatically worse
very fast. The hurricane will be over in a
few hours. Do not endanger your life or
the lives of others by going outside.
SWhen inside, stay away from windows
and doors.
If your pets appear agitated, put them
in their carriers.
If the news reports tell you to go to
your safe room, do it. If you see that your
house is suffering, head to .your safe
room immediately and place a mattress
over you.
Only use the phones for emergencies.
The time after the storm should be
used for recovery. You should not go out-
side until the news reports tell you it is
safe, and even then proceed with cau-
tion. Attempt to keep your emotions in


check. Seeing things you have worked
for destroyed is overwhelming, but the
important thing to remember is that you
and your family survived.
Remember, the American Red Cross
will be there to help you following a
storm.
The American Red Cross also reminds
you to:
* Keep children and pets inside a safe,
secure location until you have had time
to examine the damage.
* If damage is severe, find a safe way to
get the rest of the family to a better loca-
tion. Call your insurance company. Take
pictures of the damage, if any. Talk to
FEMA.
* When you venture outside, be atten-
tive of downed power lines.
Listen to the news report to find out if
it is all right to drink the tap water. If not,
continue drinking bottled water.
* If your power is out listen to the news
reports on a portable radio to see if they
are reporting major outages. Call the
power, agency for updates. Your power
could be out for a several days, be
patient. If you are short of supplies, lis-
ten to the news to find out where these
items will be offered in your area. Watch

Preparing your yard for hurricane season


WATth seven major storms
forecasted for the season
V and a 64 percent probabili-
ty of an east coast landfall, the odds
are we will experience some sdrt of
tropical activity.
With this in mind, it is not too e rly
to plan your landscape so"that in the
event of a storm, you don't hate to
scramble to get it ready. :
With careful plannitig, getting ready
for a storm does not haye to be so-
draining.

Clean up I-

The first thing you should do before
hurricane season starts is to trim trees
and bushes.
Get rid of any foliage that is dead or
might be hanging over your house. If
you have any dead or weak trees from
last year's storms, cut them down so
they don't have a chance to do damage
this year.

Make a list

Take a tour of your yard and make a


list of items that would be' dangerous
to leave lying around.
This should include patio furniture,
loose garden ornaments, small potted
plants, yard torches, arbors nd even
gas grills.
Use; this list to know what you will
have io move. s.
If ypu have a shed or gazebo, you
mightwant to add tie downns to be sure
theyfstay put and don't w\nd~jup in
Kanas -
otru can start early b\ limnii.ng wvhat
youkeep out in your 3ard during the
peak- months of August atid'Septeri-
ber.-,.
If ou own a.swimming pool, you
can throw all your patio furniture into
the pool to help Leep it from traveling
across the state.

Wind-resistant plants

There are many plants you can use
that are attractive and hold up fairly
well during a hurricane.
Hibiscus, plumbago, firecracker
plant, ixoria, and even my roses
seemed to hold up very well during


our past hur- - ..
ricanes.
You may
also want to
consider
some native



sionflower,
azalea bush,
wax myrtle,
live Oak and Joe Zelenak
Southern
Magnolia.
Native plants are used to the high
winds that can hit during hurricane
season since they have been around
our area for so many years.

Salt resistant varieties

If you live near the ocean, planting
becomes more of a challenge, because
you need to have plants that are resist-
ant to salt spray.
Remember that a hurricane can
carry the ocean mist far inland with its


70-plus mile per hour winds.
Plant varieties, such as Indian
Hawthorne, saw palmetto, confeder-
ate jasmine, society garlic, daylily, pit-
tisporum, oleander and Mexican petu-
nia do very well in areas where salt
spray can be a problem.
Gardenia plants also can fare well
with less than 25 percent damage and
full recovery after one growing season.

Tree measurements

When planning your landscape, if
you are going to plant large trees, you
should always keep the distance from
the tree to the house greater than the
height of the tree when it is full grown..
If you have any trees that are weak or
leaning, either have them secured or
remove them if they are within striking
distance of your home.
Also, look for exposed roots.
If the soil has been washed away
from the roots of your trees, the root
structure may be weakened and allow
the tree to topple easily.
