Unemployment rises, but some


good news on horizon for


Treasure Coast


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST - The 9.4 per-
cent unemployment rate on the Trea-
sure Coast in October was the highest
for that month since 1999, when it hit
10.3 percent, according to Work Force
Solutions for Region 20, which is
headquartered in Port St. Lucie.
The 9.4 percent rate was 2.4 per-
cent above the rate for October 2007
and 3.2 percent higher than the Octo-
ber rate of 7 percent for the state as a


whole.
Statistics showed that nearly 26,000
people were unemployed in St. Lucie,
Okeechobee, Martin and Indian River
counties.
But while the figures may seem
alarming, Gwenda L. Thompson,
president ofWorkforce Solutions, said
she expected the numbers to be
worse.
Traffic at career centers, where
Work Force Solutions staff help peo-
ple find jobs has increased signifi-
cantly, she said.


Freshman



representative



prepares for



tough session


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY - After an orientation
session with fellow, con-
gressional freshmen and
preliminary meetings,
Rep. Debbie Mayfield, R-
Vero Beach, is ready to
start working to build the
state's economy and bal-
ance the budget.
Mrs, Mayfield, who was
sworn into office on Nov.
18, called the task before
the state congress, "a
huge responsibility."
"It's somewhat over-
whelming, the decisions
that I help to make will
affect the whole state of
Florida," said Mrs. May-
field.
During the swearing-in
ceremony, Mrs. Mayfield
said she looked around
the room,'-saw the pic-
tures of past speakers and
was a little amazed.
"It was very humbling
to be there and make that
oath and know that my
constituents trust me to
make-the right choices for
the state," she said.
"We've got a lot of work
to do in the next few
months because of the
budget cuts that need to
be made," Mrs. Mayfield
said.
"The budget was cut


last, year

year or

reserves,
s h e
explained..
"It will
mean a lot of tough deci-
sions will need to be
made and there will prob-
ably be special projects
that will no longer have
any funding and some
people won't be very
happy," said Mrs. May-
field.
Dec. 15 is the anticipat-
ed start date for House
committee meetings.
Each representative can
request the committees
they'd like to sit on, but
they are not guaranteed
any position.
"I requested to be on
the banking and finance
committee, because of
my background in bank-
ing," said Mrs: Mayfield.
"From a regulations
standpoint, I would be
able to bring insight on
how the banking industry
works," she said.
She also requested to be
assigned to the economic

"We've had a lot
of people coming i
to the centers
applying for
unemployment benetli-
and asking .about unemployment
benefits," she said.
Ironically, she said, the increasing
unemployment has created some
newjobs.
The state has hired 250 people to
deal with unemployment compensa-
tion claims, she said.
Her office was approved for an


addi-
tional position to help with
that, she said.
All of the news regarding unem-
ployment is not bad, Ms. Thompson
said.

Local artists
.relieved

INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY - Padre Pio is no
longer missing in action.
Padre Pio, the subject of
a 8-foot by 12-foot glass
mosaic, designed by local
artisans at Conrad Pickel
Studio, was stolen. in
October, along with two
large stained glass win-
dows, which were . all
inside a company deliv-
ery truck.
Philadelphia police
found the truck aban-
doned in a park in


Philadelphia with the
mosaic inside. The
stained glass windows are
still missing.
The three pieces of art-
work were valued at more
than $100,000, said Paul
Pickel, studio president.
"In- all the years I've
been in this business,
more than 50, years, this
has never happened,"
said Mr. Pickel.
Police will contihiue to
-follow leads in the search
for the stained glass win-
dows.
Mr. Pickel surmised
that the thieves didn't
take the mosaic because
it was too heavy to trans-
port.
"And the stained glass
pieces were really large,


too. I think they were 11-
foot by 7-foot pieces. You
just can't put those any-
where, you know?" he
said.
The artwork was being
delivered to a mausoleum
in St. Raymond's Ceme-
tery in the Bronx, N.Y.
Each piece was carefully
crafted to match .,the
specifications and archi-
tecture of the mau-
Soleum.
"Our customer was very
understanding of the sit-
uation. Of course, there
was really nothing that
could be done about it,"
said Mr. Pickel.

Though long removed from the days of disco,
the theme for the three area football teams still
in contention for a state title had to be "stayin'
alive."
South Fork, Vero Beach and Fort Pierce West-
wood each won in impressive fashion, advanc-
ing in their quests to reach the Florida High
School Athletic Association Finals in Orlando
later this month.
Of the three, the Bulldogs seemingly had the
highest mountain to climb in its Region 4-5A
quarterfinal matchup. South Fork traveled to
Melbourne to take on a Palm Bay team that had
lost just once all season.
The Bulldogs quickly erased any hopes of a

are made, Mr. Pickel said.
"We are so thankful to have recovered
the mosaic. It takes a tremendous amount
of hours to complete one," he said.
He estimated that the project, as a
whole, took about a year to complete.
"We're disappointed that the windows
were not found as well, but we will wait
and see in the next few weeks if police can
find anything," said Mr. Pickel.
The careful process for, recreating the
stained glass windows will begin again if
the police do not find anything soon.
Lyn Durham, who designed the artwork
on the windows and mosaic, said it would
take a lot of work to recreate the windows,
but some preliminary work is already
completed.
"At the beginning of the process, I make
a watercolor painting to, scale of the
design and that gets approved by our
client," said Ms. Durham.
"Then I make a full-size pencil drawing
of the design. I show where the glass is

The design is then divided into pattern
pieces and the glass pieces are cut from
European hand-blown glass sheets stored
inside the studio.
"I paint the pieces of colored glass to
get a more realistic effect, especially on
their faces and hands," Ms. Durham said.
The painted glass is then fired in a kiln
multiple times to make the paint perma-
nent, Mr. Pickel explained.
The recovered mosaic will not be
installed until spring; because the cold
weather is detrimental to the installation
process, Mr. Pickel said.
The studio has decorated many of the
local churches and buildings with stained
glass art or mosaics, including St Sebast-
ian Catholic Church, in Sebastian, St.
Mark's Anglican Church, in Vero Beach
and the Gifford Youth Activities Center.
The studio also holds among its acco-

"I know that he would be
very proud of me right now,

we worked toward togeth-

me," she said.
A memorial service was
held for the former repre-
sentative on Nov. 18 in Tal-
lahassee among his fellow
congressmen, and women
and friends.
"It was kind of special
because when you are


newly elected, you sit in the
seat of your predecessor,

Mrs. Mayfield.
"I really felt like he was

that's hard to fill, but there's
a part of him that will stay

TREASURE COAST - On
Dec. 8, five television sta-

The first test will occur at
6:20 a.m. and the second at
6:20 p.m. on the same day,
all to help viewers get ready
for the Feb. 17 switch to dig-
ital television.
WPTV (NBC), WPEC

(WXEL times will be 6:20
a.m. and 6:57 p.m. due to

in advance of the national

The stations may also
continue to participate in
additional tests each Mon-
day at the same designated
times during December.

Unemployment
From page Al


expressed an interest in locat-
ing to the Treasure Coast and
one already here plans to
expand, she said.
But at this time, Ms.
Thompson said, she's not able
to disclose specific informa-
tion.
"We do know there is a lot of
business interest in the Trea-
sure Coast," she added.
By county, the unemploy-
ment rate was 10.2 percent in
St. Lucie, 10 percent in Okee-
chobee, 9.6 percent in Indian
River and 7.8 percent in Mar-
tin.
Generally, Ms. Thompson
said, Indian River and St.
Lucie counties have the high-
est rate because of depend-
ence .on jobs in construction
and agriculture.
Those are industries heavily
affected on a cyclical basis by
unemployment, Ms. Anthony
said.
The Workforce Solutions
report shows that jobs
increased in government and
education, health and leisure
and hospitality services. 1
The government, educa-
tion and health services sec-
tors all increased by 1,200
jobs.
Although local govern-
ments have cut back, the fig-
ures reflect state and federal

government hiring, as well,
Ms. Thompson said.
In some areas involving
essential services, such as law
enforcement, the government
has hired people.
Decreases occurred in con-
struction, professional and
business . services, trade,
transportation, utilities, man-
ufacturing, financial services,
information and other servic-
es.
The largest decrease was
construction, with a loss of
1,500 jobs, followed by 1,000
in business and professional
services.
When'construction jobs are
lost, Ms. Thompson said, that
affects businesses, such as
restaurants, because unem-
ployed people stop spending
money.
"If they're not working,
they're no longer eating out at
lunchtime," she said.
In the Sebastian-Vero
Beach metro area, 600 jobs
were cut from the previoiis
year.
Those job losses were in
professional and business
services, construction, manu-
facturing, government and
utilities.
Gains were in education
and health services 'and
leisure and hospitality.

Counties should help needy

Why is it that local counties refuse to create work, afford-
able housing and eliminate homelessness?
How come it so hard for both counties to create work and
affordable housing? There arepeople out of work pr about to
lose their jobs and be put out on the street and become
homeless. By creating work and affordable housing both
counties can all but eliminate homelessness.
These same people want to work, even keep their jobs, and
also want affordable housing, not only for themselves, but for
their families. Why is it that both counties and the state of
Florida look the other way and not solve the problem?
This is the reason why both counties and the state have a
bad reputation nationwide; they blame everyone else for their
own ignorance.

Response to rant

I am writing in response to "Be Carefulof New Administra-
tion" in the Nov. 28 issue of Hometown News. I found the
piece to be offensive and totally un-American. This person
claims that only those who are devout Christians are worthy
of running our country.
In addition, the piece implies that liberals; Democrats and
minorities did not sacrifice for this country. He or she further
implies that those same minorities are ruining this country.
To add further outrage, our President-elect is termed "Bin
Laden's henchman."
This person, and your newspaper, should be ashamed of
this racist rhetoric. We are a country of minorities and immi-
grants and in addition, America is a melting pot of many cul-
tures and religions. If he/she does not believe this, I suggest-
his/her own advice be taken and "move to isolated pock-
ets(?)."
Hometown News has every right to publish this type of
hatred. But an opposing point of view should also be given
space. I was quite dismayed to read this obvious bigotry in
the newspaper and hope to see the same space given to a
more American point of view.

More on rant

Last week a frustrated Republican let the Democrats have
it.
The individual who was sorry the "good old boys won't even
exist" does not knowwhat that phrase means.
President-elect Obama has always been a Christian.
Remember his dreadful minister who does hate America?
The Bible says, "Judge not lest ye be judged, "and that is
something the letter-writer should remember. I wonder why
she feels qualified to judge others.
Obama is not a Muslim and never has been. If the letter-
writer follows the news, she knows now that the cabinet is
being filled with experienced men.
In my view, President Bush is the worst thing that has hap-
pened to this country in my 77 years. (I call him King George.)
He does not follow the Constitution, which he swore to
uphold. It is his duty to execute the laws passed by Congress,
but when he signs them, he indicates he may not. And there
are other examples.
Last, but certainly not least, remember the hundreds of
thousands who have been killed-or wounded in an unjust
cause. After all Iraq had nothing to do with Sept. 11. That was
Afghanistan.
Editor's note: We are glad you took the time to furnish an
opposing opinion.

Fighting SAD before it gets worse


It happens every year,
even in Florida. The days
get shorter and many of
us start to feel a little blue.
Those of us who came
from the north are familiar
with the "winter blues,"
when the days get short and
gray, the trees grow bare and
everything seems damp and
cold.
For many of us, escaping
the depression that came
with the winter weather was
a major reason for coming
to Florida to live, and
snowbirds continue to come
here each winter for our
"best season."
While the winter blues
may not be as severe in the
south, it is still a reality for
many people. Even in
Florida, the days grow
shorter and there are far
fewer hours of sunlight each
day. It can be sunny at 3
p.m. and dark by 4:30!
Those of us in Florida who
are susceptible to the
"winter blues," or seasonal
'affective disorder, as it is
medically known, need to
be alert, understand the
symptoms and take action
to ease the distress of SAD.
The first thing you need to
know is that SAD is'a-
recognized form of depres-
sion that has been linked to
a biochemical imbalance in
the brain. The imbalance is
brought on by the shorter
days and lack of sunlight. It
is real.
Some of the symptoms of
SAD include:
* Excessive sleeping.,


* Increased appetite and
weight gain (people often
turn to comfort food and
crave starches and sugars).
* Irritability.
* Difficulties with other
people, especially feelings of
rejection.
* A heavy, leaden feeling
in the arms and legs.
The American Psychiatric
Association (www.healthy-
minds.org) suggests a
variety of treatments that
are effective in managing or
staving off SAD.
The first thing to try is to
increase your exposure to
sunlight. If possible, take a
walk or arrange an office or
room so that you are
exposed to a window. If you
work in a cubicle, try to get
out on your lunch hour. A
walk also decreases stress
and exercise has been found
to help with the symptoms
of SAD.
If your symptoms don't go
away, or affect your daily
life, then it's time to seek
help. A professional trained .
in the treatment of depres-
sion may recommend
several treatments, includ-
ing traditional measures
such as talk therapy and
antidepressants. However,
he or she may also recom-
mend light therapy, which


has been very effective in
treating SAD.
This involves exposure to
a bright light from a special
fluorescent light box for
between 30 to 90 minutes a
day during the winter.
Many people notice
improvement within a few
days, while other may take a
few weeks to see improve-
ment: If there is none at all,
other treatments may be
necessary.
Before investing in a
bright-light device, you
should consult with your
physician, because people
with certain eye conditions
and sensitivity to light may
not be good candidates for
the treatment.
In addition, someone
should monitor your
progress, to see howyou are
feeling and if the treatment
is appropriate for you.
Light therapy devices
range from metal boxes to
portable lamps. They
contain white fluorescent
light bulbs behind a diffuser,
so the light is at a downward
angle, allowing more to
enter the eyes. The diffuser
spreads the light.evenly and
absorbs and filters out
dangerous ultraviolet rays. It
is extremely important to
Purchase a light box from a
reputable company that can
provide independent
verification that the devices
they sell are free of ultravio-
let rays that can damage the
eyes and skin.
If seasonal affective
disorder is a problem for


you, it's a good idea to think
now about a solution before
the days grow shorter and
depression sets in. That's
when it seems hard to do
anything, including seek
treatment.
You can call 211 and ask
for organizations that
provide mental health
counseling, many on sliding
scales.
Lawnwood Pavilion
Mental Health Services at
Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center in Fort
Pierce offers 24 hour, seven-
days-a-week assessments,

Guard yourself against identity theft


Over the last two
weeks, I have been
writing a series on the
growing problem of identity
theft. I chose this topic (not,
realizing that it was going to
become a multi-part series)
because of people's miscon-
ceptions that identity theft is
primarily a computer-
related crime.
What I found while
researching this series is that
identity theft is the most
rapidly-growing fraud-
related crime, with only a
portion of cases computer
related.
A common misconcep-
tion is: "What does it matter
if someone steals my
identity? It's not like I'm rich
or anything, so they aren't
going to get anything from
me."
But the cold reality is that
we are all vulnerable, and
even though it may only
take an identity thief a few
hours to steal someone's
identity, it can take years fro
the victim to get it restored.
OK, so, it's a problem that
we all face. The question
now is what can we do
about it?
The Federal Bureau of
Investigation recommends
that we take the following
steps to protect ourselves
and also offers some
guidelines to follow in the
event you find yourself a
victim. (Note: the following
is from an FBI press release


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAlr MCCARIHY


on identity theft).
How do I protect myself?
Never give out personal
information over the
telephone, Internet or
through the mail, unless you
initiated the contact or you
are sure who you are dealing
with.
Secure/lock up docu-
ments in your home that
contain sensitive informa-
tion. Shred documents that
contain sensitive informa-
tion before throwing them
in the trash.
Protect PIN numbers and
passwords.
Avoid using readily
identifiable information for
a password. Select a more
complex combination of
numbers and letters when
creating passwords.
Deposit outgoing mail in a
U.S. Post Office collection
box or at the post office,
rather than using an
unsecured mailbox, and
promptly remove incoming
mail from your mailbox.
Limit the number of
identification documents
and credit cards you carry to
only what is necessary.
Close unused credit card
or bank accounts. If a bill


does not arrive on time,
ensure that your mailing
address has not been
changed.
Review your financial
statements carefully for
unauthorized charges.
Review a copy of your
credit report annually.
How do I protect myself
online?
Update your virus
protection software regular-
ly. Use a firewall for extra
protection, especially if you
have a high-speed Internet
connection.
Do not download files or
open e-mail attachments
from unknown individuals;
they may contain a comput-
er virus allowing the hacker
to access your computer
files.
Before disposing of an old
computer, have the hard
drive reformatted to "wipe"
or overwrite your hard drive.
Avoid using an automatic
login feature on the com-
puter, which saves your user
name and password.
What can I do if I am a
victim of identity theft?
Place a fraud alert on your
credit reports. The three
major credit reporting
agencies have launched a
joint fraud alert system,
eliminating the need for
victims to contact all three
agencies. A fraud alert
placed with one credit
reporting agency will now
be shared with other credit


reporting agencies. T hey are:
Experian
(www.experian.com) (888)
397-3742
Equifax
(www.Equifax.com) (800)
525-6285
TransUnion
(www.tuc.com) (800) 680-
7289
Contact the fraud/securi-
ty department of the
compromised or fraudulent
account issuer. Notify them
by phone and in writing,
and close any affected
accounts. A sample identity
theft affidavit is available at
www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pub
s/credit/affidavit.
File a report with your
local police department.
File a report using the FTC
identity theft hotline. The
FTC is the central clearing-
house for identity theft
complaints.
Complaints maybe filed
by telephone, online or by
mail: IdentityTheft Clear-
inghouse, Federal Trade
Commission, 600 Pennsyl-
vania Avenue N.W, Wash-
ington, D.C. 20580, call (877)

Seniors gift drive under way


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY - The
United Way of Indian River County and
the Senior Resource Association
announced the sthrt of their second
annual Santas for Seniors holiday gift
drive, which runs through Monday,
Dec. 15.
The program invites the public to
provide unwrapped presents to seniors
who otherwise might not receive a gift
this holiday season by bringing the
requested items, unwrapped, to the
United Way offices, located at 1836
14th Ave., Vero Beach.
Volunteers and staff from the Senior
Resource Association will then sort,
bundle and wrap the gifts for their
clients in need.
A variety of personal care items, such
as clothing (robes, sweatpants, sweat-


shirts, pajamas), household items,
such as nonperishable food, sheets,
towels, blankets, cleaning supplies,
such as sponges, shower cleaner, toilet
bowl cleaners, personal care items,
such as soap, body lotion, shampoo
and conditioner, bandages, gift cards
from Publix or Walmart, CD players
and music, large-print books, gift bags,
stationary and stamps.
A full list of the specific items needed
(complete with sizes) is available on
the United Way Web site at www.unit-
edwayirc.org or the list can be picked
up at the United Way offices.
Senior Resource Association -
formerly the Council on Aging - is a
nonprofit organization that has served
Indian River County since 1974,
providing activities, programs and
services benefiting seniors in our
community.
SRA is a United Way partner agency.
To learn more, call (772) 569-0760.


Compute
From page A6
copies of documents while
going through this reporting
process, including the
names of the agencies and
individuals you have spoken
with.
As I mentioned earlier, it
can take years to restore an
identity once it's been
compromised. But fortu-
nately, there are more and
more systems coming into
place to help people combat
this insidious trend.
Some banks are offering
ID theft protection along
with their credit cards, but I
don't knowhow helpful that
would be should someone
commit a crime in your
name.

game. Quarterback Ronnie
Nelson raced 47 yards for a
touchdown to put South
Fork up 7-0.
"fie was spectacular,"
South Fork head coach
Dennis Lavelle said of Nel-
son. He ran the show. It the
best performance by a
quarterback at South Fork."
Zack Fisher followed with
an 8-yard run of his own,
while the Pirates looked on
in disbelief.
"We were stunned,"
Lavelle said. "So were they."
Palm: Bay cut the lead in
half later in the first quarter
before the defense took
over until the final period.
In that final frame, Nelson
connected with Jason
Thompson on an 11-yard
touchdown toss to give
South Fork a comfortable
21-7 lead.
Or so they thought.
The Pirates rallied for two
late touchdowns to pull
within 21-20, the last with


VeoBec

33 seconds left in the game.
With just an extra point
separating the teams from
overtime, Palm Bay inexpli-
cably went for two.
The Pirates pass attempt
was knocked down in the
end zone, giving the Bull-
dogs just their second play-
off victory in the program's
27-year history.
"I couldn't believe it,"
Lavelle said. "I was looking
for somebody to hug.
"It was a huge win for us."
The same can be said for
Westwood's 35-28 overtime
Region 4-4A quarterfinal
victory over Boca Raton.
LaBryon Jackson intercept-
ed an Eddie Sullivan pass in
the extra session to end the
game, setting off an
impromptu celebration at
Lawnwood Stadium.
Westwood led for most of
the game, taking advantage
of a Boca miscue to get on
the board first. On the Bob-
cats initial play from scrim-
mage, the exchange was
fumbled and Khalil Mack
snatched the ball out of the
air and dashed 33 yards in
the opposite direction for a
7-0 lead.
"I was praying that we
wouldn't come out flat and
we had a great start," West-
wood head coach Waides


Ashmon said.
The second quarter
belonged to Jerrell Wash-
ington, as the tailback
rushed for a pair of 2-yard
touchdowns to give West-
wood a comfortable 21-0
advantage. However, sever-
al missed opportunities let
Boca back in the game, and
the Bobcats reeled off 21
unanswered points to tie
the game.
"We played great for
about 38 minutes," Ashmon
said. "The problem is you
have to play a full 48, espe-
cially this time a year."
The ensuing kickoff went
to Washington who scam-
pered 90 yards to put West-
wood back on top with just
over a minute left in regula-
tion.
"He's done a great job for
us all year," Ashmon said of
Washington.
A short kick gave Boca
excellent field position and
Sullivan connected with
tight end C.J. Porto with 14
.seconds on the clock to
force overtime.
Washington answered yet
again, taking the second
play from scrimmage down
the sideline for an 11-yard
score.
"They came back and
scored and then we came


right back and scored,"
Ashmon said. "Things like
that happen.
"It was a great learning
experience for us."
While. South Fork and
Westwood were each bat-
tling for their respective
playoff lives, Vero Beach
was emphatically erasing
memories of a 14-7 playoff
loss to Park Vista last season
with a thoroughly dominat-
ing performance at the Cit-
rus Bowl.
The Indians racked up
286 rushing yards in a 48-7
romp in their Region 2-6A
quarterfinal win over the
Cobras. Corbin Weaver
scored three touchdowns
and Ben Harrison added
two more, and Vero Beach's
vaunted defense did the
rest in limiting Park Vista to
a lone Tre Mason touch-
down.
"The kids played well,"
Vero head coach Gary Cog-
gin said. "We anticipated
that it would be a four-
quarter football game.
"We were prepared to try
and run it. When the offen-
sive line is executing like
that we have a chance to be
successful.
"We found some things
that worked and stuck with
it."

Gift card tips to be aware of


INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- "Because we care about
the people in the home-
towns we serve, we are
providing the following
tips for consumers to make
better choices when
purchasing gift cards this
holiday season," said Alan
Polackwich, Riverside
Bank president in Indian
River County.
* Only buy gift cards
from reputable sources.
Stay away from online
auction sites, which may
have counterfeit or fraudu-
lently-obtained cards.
* Some gift cards don't
have fees, but others do.
Check the packaging for
information on fees or look
for a toll-free number or
Web site with full informa-

tion. Some fees may be
paid in cash, but others
deduct fees from the card.
* Check for an expiration
date. Some gift cards
expire. If your card does,
you may not be able to use
it after the expiration date.
Find out whether the card
can be reissued with a new
expiration date, and what
the fee would be for
issuing a new card.
* Don't buy it if anything
looks suspicious, such as if
protective stickers have

* Have the store cashier
scan the gift card you're
buying in front of you. This
reflects the balance that
you paid for it and protects
against crooks who substi-
tute worthless cards for the
cards you think you are
buying.
S* Keep your original
receipt if you need to verify
the value of the card.
Having the toll-free
number that appears on
the back of the card can be
handy if your gift card is
lost or doesn't work.
* Never give your Social
Security number, date of
birth or any other private


information to anyone
when you purchase a gift
card. No reputable compa-
ny will ever ask for this
information.
* A store gift card can
often be used only at the
store where it was pur-
chased (or related stores).
Some are used for pur-
chases in selected malls.
Other gift cards, such as
those with a connection to
MasterCard or VISA, can
typically be used wherever
their credit cards are
accepted. Some gift cards
allow you to get cash at an
ATM.

Gold-Filled pocket Watches
The first patent for gold-filled
cases was given to J. Boss
on May 3, 1859. Gold-filled
watch cases are far more
common than solid gold
cases. Only about 5% of the
cases were solid gold. In
making the gold-filled case,
the following process was
used: two bars of gold, 12"
long, 2"wide, and 1/2" thick
were.placed on either side of
a bar of base metal. The bar
of base metal was 3/4" thick
and the same length and
width as the gold bars.
These three bars were sol-
dered together under pres-
sure at high temperature.
The bars were sent through
rolling mills under tremen-
dous pressure; this rolling
was repeated until the
desired thickness, was
reached. The new sandwich-
type gold was now in a sheet.
Discs were punched out of
the sheet and pressed in a
die to form a dish-shaped
cover. Finally the lip, or
ridge, was added. The bezel,
snap, and dust caps were
added in the finishing room.
Gold-filled cases are usually
10kt or 14kt gold. The num-
ber of years indicated the
duration of guarantee that
the gold on the case would
not wear through to the base
metal. The cases were usu-
ally marked ten-year, fifteen-
year, twenty-year, twenty-five
year, or thirty-year. The high-
er the number of years indi-
cated that more gold was
used and that a higher origi-
nal price was paid.'

type of fraud happens dur-.
ing the holiday season.
Fortunately, a few simple
steps can help ensure you
stay out of these statistics.
Identity theft or "account
takeover fraud" involves
criminals stealing a person's
personal information. The
crooks assume a person's
identity, apply for credit in
his or her name, run up
huge bills, stiff creditors and
generally wreck the victim's
credit record.
Most banks take steps to
look out for their customers
by putting a combination of
safeguards in place, includ-
ing employee training, rig-
orous security standards,
data encryption and fraud
detection.
Some banks offer identity
theft protection products
that monitor all three credit
reports for you daily and
send you customizable
alerts of any key changes.
In addition to the banks'
efforts, you can take these
steps to avoid becoming a
victim:
* Don't give your Social
Security or account num-
bers to anyone over the
phone unless you initiated
the call.
* Tear up or shred
receipts, old bank state-
ments and unused credit
card offers before throwing
them away. Crooks could
steal information from your
trash and use it to get credit
in your name.
* Review your bank and
credit card statements as
soon as you receive them to
check for unauthorized
transactions.
* * Protect your personal
identification numbers and
computer passwords; use a
combination of letters and
numbers and change them
often. Never carry this infor-
mation with you.
* Order copies of your
credit report once a year to
ensure accuracy. Visit Annu-
alCreditReport.com, the
only online site supported
by the'three national credit
reporting agencies. Or call
any of the agencies: Trans
Union (800) 680-7289,
Experian (888) 397-3742
and Equifax (800) 525-6285.
* Report any suspected
fraud to- your bank and
credit card issuers immedi-
ately, so they can start to
close accounts and clear
your name right away. You
may also contact the Feder-
al Trade Commission's ID
Theft Consumer Response
Center toll-free at (877)
'IDTHEFT.
By law you are only liable
for the first $50 of unautho-
rized charges against a cred-
it card account. Still, restor-
ing your identity can be a,
tremendous inconvenience.
It's worth your while to exer-
cise a little preventive main-
tenance. Protect yourself
against this terrible crime.

Designer outlet offers quality,


budget-friendly shopping


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
VERO BEACH - Finding the
perfect look can be challenging, but
it gets harder when the perfect look
comes with an im-perfect price tag.
Karen Pablo, owner of Seventh
Avenue Designer Outlet in Vero
Beach, opened her store in October
with customers who want quality
clothes for less in mind.
"When I decided on an outlet store,
I wanted to have items for people
who want clothes for going to the
workplace, a casual pair of capris at a
good deal, because that's what people
are looking for," said Ms. Pablo.
While stock markets are unpre-
dictable and the cost of groceries
rising, people don't always have
expendable income to spend on
clothes that they used to, said Ms.
Pablo.
"I buy in bulk, so I can afford to
have items at 40 percent to 60 percent
off the retail price across the board,
all the time," she said.
The store regularly carries a variety
of new men's, women's and children's
clothing, as well as shoes, belts,
handbags, sunglasses, jewelry and a
small selection of gift items.
"At these prices, people are excited
that they can get an outfit, including
shoes, for under $50," said Ms. Pablo.
Some of the designer labels found
around the store include Daisy
'Fuentes, Lee, Croft and Barrow and
Senoma.
"This is great," one customer said.
"It saves all of the time and confusion'
of going to the mall. The selection is
great and there's all different kinds of
brand names to choose from."
"I'm not here to make a million
dollars," Ms. Pablo said. "I just want
to make enough to cover the bills. I
know a lot of people are hurting right
now."
The outlet store is stocked with
clothes in a wide range of sizes, from
zero to 3X and is outfitted with two
changing rooms. Jeans are available
in sizes 2 to 24.
"People are calling us a little
department store, where they can
find a little bit of everything," said Ms.
Pablo.


"But if we don't have what people
are looking for, I try to suggest other
places around town they might be
able to find something they like," said
Ms. Pablo.
She is proud of the fact that other
stores in the Miracle Mile area ofVero
Beach work collaboratively to
encourage shoppers to support local
businesses.
Customer satisfaction and a
friendly shopping environment are
high on the priority list for Ms. Pablo.
"I treat everyone who comes in like
the first customer ever to walk in the
store," she said.
"I try to get one-on-one with all of
my customers and see if I can help
thorn " ,.l !: Sablo.

Ms. Pablo moved to Vero Beach
with her family after living in Canada
for more than 14 years.
"Shoveling snow for years gets
tiring after awhile," Ms. Pablo said
with a smile.
"Vero Beach.seemed like a nice
place, a quiet community to raise our
young daughter," she said.
The store is open Monday through
Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday
from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and is
closed on Sunday.
"We decided to stay closed on
Sunday because it's a day for church
and family," said Ms. Pablo.

advanced custom orthotics can make a huge difference. While there is no fountain of youth for
arthritis, there are more medical options available to Baby Boomers than ever before.
Big toes
Baby Boomers are most likely to develop osteoarthritis in their big toe joint. During walking, the
big toe absorbs forces equal to nearly twice a person's body weight. It plays an important role in
stooping and standing. Some boomers start to develop big toe stiffness, a condition called hallux
limits, in their forties.
Better surgical procedures now offer improved pain relief and joint movement to Boomers with
early stage arthritis at the big toe. Patients with advanced and severe arthritis may need to have the

Small-ship cruising along the Eastern seaboard


Once again in my
research for a client
(as in many cases), I
have come upon a product
that just gets me excited.
You must understand
that being in the travel
industry means you are
inundated with materials
on everything from bed &
breakfasts in the tiniest
towns, to luxurious tent
accommodations while on
safari, to various cruise
vessels that seem to enter
into service every day.
Every cruise line, tour
operator, hotel chain,


airline, resort and tourism
board from various desti-
nations send you informa-
tion, both in print and
electronically. I would love
to have the brain power to
keep it all in the front of my
mind, but just the enor-
mous amount of collateral,
specials, promotions, and
what's new and exciting
makes it impossible to
remember the many
details.
Don't get me wrong, the
information is important
and necessary, there's just
so very much of it. Back to

PATT) TOPPA



telling you what I am
excited about.
My client was interested
in cruising, but not neces-
sarily on a large ship. We
discussed options, such as
river cruising in both
Europe and Asia, and they
decided they wanted to be
closer to home. We hit


upon cruising American
Cruise Lines. What was so
exciting is that this cruise
line has grown so much
over the past eight years
and has come into its own
during a time of mega ship
boom.
ACL has four American
built, flagged and crewed
vessels: the American Eagle
and American Glory, each
boasting 49 passengers,
and the larger American
Spirit and American Star,
with 100 passengers.
All of these vessels
include spacious state-
rooms averaging 220
square feet, many with
private balconies. In fact
those without balconies
have large windows that
open to hear the sounds
and breathe the local air,
whether cruising along the
Eastern seaboard or along
the rivers. More important-
ly (for some), no interna-
tional flights are necessary.
For that matter, no flights
at all are necessary.
The vessels are a bit boxy
to look at from afar, but
once aboard, the decor and
ambiance take over. They
are very comfortable, yet
elegant, and are designed
to access the most remote
passages and coves. They
dock at exciting ports and
quaint coastal villages each
day.
Life on board is really
about the ambiance and
friendly atmosphere. There
are really no daily activities
planned on board, except
for 5:30 p.m. pre-dinner
cocktails and after dinner
lectures, which I under-
stand are very lively and
usually well discussed.


Each port allows for
shore excursions (at an
additional but nominal
fee). Many are walks
around the port town with
a local historian, a visit to
local museums or area
attractions.
The real attraction to this
cruise line is its itineraries.
Ranging from six- to 14-
night cruises, there are
many to choose from, from
Bangor, Maine to Sanford,
Fla. Each port offers
history, culture and natural
beauty. Here is a glimpse of
itineraries.
* New England islands:
Seven nights. Sailing round
trip from Providence, R.I.,
New Bedford, Mass., the
islands of Nantucket and

Heed these holiday plant safety tips WEMMER I


W th the holidays in
full swing, many of
Sus are going to
purchase one or more
colorful holiday plants that
are available now.
For the most part, most of
these plants are safe, but
some safety precautions
should be taken. With some
common sense precautions,
you can have a safe and
happy holiday season.
* Poinsettia. These colorful
holiday plants are safe to
have around your home
during the holidays. As with
any ornamental, they should
be kept out of reach of small
children and should never be
ingested. Although they are
not particularly toxic to
humans, they can be very
toxic to small animals. If you
have pets that have a habit of
chewing your plants, opt for
the artificial variety. They can
often look just as spectacular
as the real thing and you can
reuse them year after year.
Over time, this can save you a
pile ofmoney.
* Mistletoe. Using the
mistletoe as a decoration is a
tradition that has been
carried out for centuries.
During pagan times, troops'

NOOK
JOE ZELENIAK



at war who met in the
presence of mistletoe were
required to lay down their
weapons and unite in a day
of truce. Mistletoe was also
used during rituals that
celebrated the winter solstice.
It was used as a symbol of the
eventual return of the sun.
In Christianity, mistletoe
has been used as symbol of
love ever since the Middle
Ages. During this era, the
mistletoe was blessed by a
priest and all those who
walked under it kissed as a
sign of friendship and all bad
feelings were extinguished.
In modern times, the
tradition of being kissed
under the mistletoe is still in
full force. A trip to your local
holiday shop will usually .
yield both live and artificial
versions of this popular
holiday plant.
The "live" mistletoe plant is
toxic if ingested and should
be kept out of the reach of


small children and pets. As
long as it is not ingested, this
plant can still create a warm
feeling of friendship to all
who walk under it.
* Live Christmas trees.
Although live trees are the
main symbol of this great
day, they can pose hazards if
not handled and cared for
properly. The main hazard
from live trees is fire.
When you first bring your
tree home, be sure to cut a
slice off the bottom of it
before placing it in its new
location. This will help the
tree to absorb water faster,
which will greatly lengthen its
useful life. There are many
products on the market that
are labeled as "tree savers"
that are useful in helping the
tree to absorb water faster
and over a longer period of
time.
It is important when
choosing a location for your
new tree to place it away
from any heat sources or
sparks. In the past, using
faulty Christmas lights that
either shorted out or sparked
has caused most tree-related
fires.
In addition, lights that
produce too much heat can
be a problem on a tree that


has been in use for an
extended period of time.
- Today, one of the best ways
to stay safe is to use the new
LED lights that are available
for decorating. They look
great and besides running
cooler then other lights, they
also save you money. They
use a fraction of the power of
conventional lighting
methods.
In addition, use only UL-
approved extension cords
and power strips. Using LED
lights will not create as much.,
as a load on your extension
cords and power adapters.
With the availability of a
large selection of artificial
trees, for niany people this
will be a great alternative to
the live tree. Most are now in
three pieces with all the lights
already attached and they
last year after year, saving you
lots of money over time.
As you can see, with some
common sense practices, you
can stay safe this holiday
season.

Aries-March 21-April 19
Life is going your way. The
key to keeping it going is to
follow your heart and trust
your instincts. Your very first,
impressions are always the
best. You always speak your
truth. The way to tell who is
on your side is how they;
react when you speak it. A
friend will bless you for
telling it. A negative response
is someone not on your side.
Bediscerning.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your strong sense of direc-
tion has returned. You have-
survived recent unplanned
changes. Worrying about
things that might have been
is wasted energy. Stay close
to your loved ones. Ask for
guidance from close friends
when needed. There js much
to learn and do, in the
upcoming new year. It will
be all and more than you,
could ask for.

Gemini-May 21-June;21,
Your renewed self esteem is
moving you toward your
higher goals. You know what
you want. Keeping focused
on your main goals is a chal-
lenge and should be the top
priority. It keeps the negativi-
ty of the world from side-
tracking you; Everyone wants
a part of you. Be true to spir-
it, self, family and the world
and everything willbe OK.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Speaking from the heart is
the only path that keeps you
centered. It keeps you from
taking on unwanted respon-
sibilities. Make a new years
resolution that you will make
a little time for fun things.
You have earned the right:
You don't have to be all
things to all people anymore.
Follow this plan and you will
soar into andthrough the
new year ahead.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Your life is moving quite
nicely, thank you. You are
taking the lighter touch. You
handle family responsibilities
very well. You are having
more fun in life. Start your
day with gratitude and bless-
ings for all you have been
given and more will always
be on the way. Now contin-
ue to find more fun, creative
causes. Yours is a great life.

city's historic antique dis-
trict, is owned by artist Ron
Van Sweringen who relocat-
ed to Vero Beach from Vir-
ginia.
The 2,800-square-foot
gallery houses an eclectic
assortment of paintings, fur-
niture, accessories and one-
of-a-kind objets d'art.
"I don't think people
expect this when they come
through the door," said Mr.
Van Sweringen.


Unlike many other gal-
leries, Gallery RVS Ltd. fea-
tures not only paintings, but
also fine furnishings.
"I like good decorative
accessories. They are what
make a room and good
paintings,, lamps,and other
things are hard to find," Mr.
Van Sweringen said.
A lifelong painter, Mr. Van
Sweringen's style is highly
evocative of the French
impressionists and his use of
color is eye-catching..
"Some have almost psy-
chedelic colors," he noted
with a laugh.
The subjects of these col-
orful, beautifully-framed
works would have been
familiar to Renoir or Monet,
and include pastoral scenes,
gardens and elegant, 19th
century women carrying
parasols.
These are elegant paint-


ings, yet the bright hues lend
a sense of carefree gaiety.
His works also include
lushly-painted tropical
scenes that incorporate a
wide palette of highly- satu-
rated colors, which delight
the eye.
Former first lady Nancy
Reagan owns two beach
scene paintings by Mr. Van
Sweringen and his paintings
have hung in the Corcoran
Museum of Art in Washing-
ton, D.C., and throughout
the world.
"I paint from my head. It's
such a bore to copy and I get
feelings of inspiration.
"To me, color is the most
important thing in a paint-
ing," Mr. Van Sweringen
said.
Besides his paintings and
those by other artists,
Gallery RVS Ltd. is a literal
treasure trove for decorative


accessories and fine furni-
ture.
' The large, multi-roomed
gallery is filled with unusual
pieces in what quickly
becomes a delightful senso-
ry overload.
A large assortment of
antique Japanese Imari
porcelain pieces beckon,
then attention is drawn to
"tramp" art, artfully con-
structed of matchsticks by
Depression-era hoboes and
jailbirdss."
For those who love kitschy
Florida shell art, Gallery RSV.
Ltd. surely has the mother
lode of pieces dating from
the 1940s, '50s and '60s. Yet
there is also an incredibly
ornate mirror loaded with
gorgeous shells and coral,
which would perfectly
accessorize an ocean-front
mansion.

"I have always lived an active lifest le and my decision to have cosmetic dentistryn was just an extension
of that. I wanted to look and feel younger, enhance first impressions, and improve my self-conidence. The
results have been simply astounding. I am proud of my smile and I use it a lot. \When meeting people
instead of being self-conscious about my smile now I want people to look at how terrific it is.
I can't believe just how nice my teeth look, Dr. Reiner certainly knows what he is doing and I am very

Sometimes it takes patience
when things don't go as
:planned. Never give up until
the timing is right and suc-
cess is coming your way. Your
hard work and perseverance

'ligence, heart and spirit as
your shining qualities, you set
a wonderful example for oth-
Sers around you to do the
same. Failure isn't in your
vocabulary.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You do your best when you
are psyched up and on a nat-
ural high in life. When your
heart' is in a project and you
are having fun, there is no
stopping you. You have a nat-
ural love of life in all it's
forms. What a wonderful spir-
it. Write down your commit-
ments and with this divine
blessing and energy you will
accomplish all your dreams.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
To truly prosper you must
;make short, medium and
long-range goals and plans.
Then set reasonable time
frames for their completion.
Live one day at a time. Take
care of today first. Then clear
Sup past responsibilities. Next,
work on future projects. Be
flexible. Adjustments are
sometimes needed. This is
the plan of champions. You
are a champion,,

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Staying focused can be a
challenge because of your
many causes and visions.
Refuse to get scattered or
sidetracked. Take time each
day to dream and refocus
your visions. Then act on the
ones that need attention.
Sometimes less is more. Be

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
The universal energy is strong
around you with Venus,
Jupiter and Pluto in Capri-
corn. Stay focused on the
most important things first.
Act only when it feels right
and you are sure it is the right
thing to do. When stress
comes, back off a little, catch
a second wind and regroup.
Now move on to even
greater success.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb.18
Your natural respect for oth-
ers continues to earn more
respect for you. You are mak-
ing new contacts in your pro-
fessional life that will soon
bring expanded success and
responsibility. Pay attention
to details and the larger
things have a way of working
out. Your greatest dreams will
come true because you have
the, best interest of others
first in your heart.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Pisces is the last of the water
signs which rule the heart
and feelings. You are a leader
in emotional activities. Trust
your gut instinct. Be bold and
courageous. You sense
where the truth is in others. If
it doesn't feel right don't do it
no matter what. There is no
reason to suffer now. You
have too much good in your
heart to let this happen.

tion JON DAVIS: Lost Lug-

Admission for this exhibition is
free for all visitors and made
possible by presenting spon-
sor Seacoast National Bank.
Eight years ago, Mr. Davis
found a discarded box of
antique family photographs
circa 1908-1950 that inspired
his current work of lighted
wall constructions. Mr. Davis
has taken these vintage pho-
tographs and artfully juxta-
posed them with images from
art history, colored light and in
some cases, industrial


machinery creating fictional
narratives and theatrical envi-
ronments.
The exhibit will feature 12
works that explore his early
use of these found photo-
graphs in his box construc-
tions and how the concept
has evolved into his most
recent work.
The museum is located in
Riverside Park at 3001 River-

Golf, by the numbers


, I grew up a huge base-
ball fan. Every week,
through the summers of
my childhood I could
recite baseballs' leaders in
hitting, pitching, runs
batted in and so on. Stats o
were the gauge I would use
to prove why Mike
Sdhmidt was a better third
baseman than George
Brett.
Golf, however, is not a
game for statistics.
'!Sre, we can remember
who won the most majors
qr who won the most
tournaments. That's the
easy stuff. But can any of
you tell me who led the
PGA Tour in greens in
regulation this past
season? I didn't think so.
A few years back, the
PGA Tour gave golf us
ShotLink, a wonderful gift
used to give us fans an
intense array of golf
statistics.
ShotLink uses global
positioning system tech-
nqlogy to measure every
shot by every player in
every tour event, sans thd
four majors, to produce
more than 250 categories.
.To a true numbers freak,
it's like food for a starving
man. The numbers are
only partially available to
the public and many of my
media brethren have no
clue how valuable
ShotLink can be.
ShotLink sets up a
survey instrument on
every hole. The instrument
khows exactly where it is
oh the planet, down to
within a couple of inches.
Every day the position of
the tee markers is fed into
the system, along with the
hple location. Once a
p�yer hits his first shot, a
vAlunteer manning the
survey instrument locates
The ball where it comes to
rest, putting if in the
cross-hairs of the instru-
ment and squeezes the
trigger.
The. GPS system hits the
ball with a laser andi
calculates within a couple
inches just where the ball
is in the world. From'
there, it's pretty easy to
figure out how far the ball
traveled, how far the

iThe event will also
include three live auction
items: a chef-prepared din-
ner for six, cooking lessons
and an international wine
tasting, all in the winner's
hOMie.

player has left to get to the
hole and how far from the
center of the fairway the
ball stopped.
Once a shot reaches the
green, we can use the
information to know how
long that birdie putt really
is.
Most of us are treated to
10 core statistics. The most
popular is the driving
distance category, which
has been dominated by
Bubba Watson the past
three years. However, the
stats show that his drives
are getting shorter every
year, down to 315.1 yards
in 2008 compared to 319.6
in 2006.
The year's longest drive
came right here at our
Honda Classic.
Tim Petrovic blasted his
drive 439 yards at the 1lth
hole on Friday's round.
Overall, driving distances
are coming down. Only 13
players averaged 300 yards
or more off the tee, half as
many as in 2005.
When you look at the
stats, you will find out why
the old phrase, "drive for
show, putt for dough" is
quite true. Players who led
the field in putting won six
times, while Dustin
Johnson was the only
winner who led in driving
distance.
In fact, when you add all
three major tours together,
players who led the field in
putting won 16 times
compared to twice for the
longest knockers.
If you find yourself
needing to make a long
putt, give Steve Marino a
call. Marino canned 35
putts of more than 25 feet
in 2008. If three-putting is
.yourAchille's heel. call
Ben Curtis, who went the
longest without a three-
putt, going 374 consecu-
tive holes at one point; or
Greg Kanada, who had a
mere 19 three-putts in
1,170 holes.
Kevin Streelman may


not be a household name,
but he is quite at home
with red numbers on his
scorecard. The Tour rookie
from Illinois carded a
Tour-best 54 rounds in the
60s.
Who says that old guys
can't play? Bob Tway led
the Tour in putting with a
1.718 average and at age
49, became the oldest
player to lead in any
category.
The Tour's Iron Man
award should go to Patrick
Sheehan, who led in
rounds played in 2008
with 124.
Nicholas Thompson gets
honorable mention,
leading in starts with 36.
The little guys get some
credit as well. Corey Pavin,


all 5-foot 7-inches of him,
led everyone in scoring on
the par-3s at 11-under.
However, it's the par-5s
where you make your
move. Charles Howell III
and Steve Marino lead in
scoring there at 130-
under.,
Last, but not least, one
final odd, tidbit of infor-
mation. The two players
who led the Tour in top-10
finishes, Jim Furyk and
Robert Allenby failed to
win an event between
them.
