County approves first phase

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Though
they wore red hats to the meeting, going
green was on the minds of county com-
missioners during their last regular
meeting of 2008.
Chairman Wesley Davis and other
council members wore red-and-white
Santa hats to their Dec. 23, meeting, but
they were all business when it came to
discussing the energy-saving and cost-
reducing measures to be implemented
around the county.
Lights in five buildings are scheduled
to be retrofitted with a newer generation
of florescent lights, Mark Falasca, Flori-
da Power and Light Energy Services
spokesman, said.
"Ultimately, you're saving energy with
those newer lights," he said.,
"Then there's the water conservation
aspect, where we'll be moving to ultra
low flow water fixtures. It will reduce the
numbers of gallons per flush and will
save about 1 million gallons of water per
year," said Mr. Falasca.
The list of buildings included in the


"MThere are two major things to
realize about this. One, the
energy saving measures will pay
themselves off in a 7.5 year
payback period and two, after
that, going forward, the $85,000
that is guaranteed savings every
year will go right back to the

the historic Holman Sta-

.Vero Beach fans and
other Dodger lovers said

New year, new pets,


new challenges


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
VERO BEACH If you were one
of many who couldn't resist the big,
beautiful eyes of a new pet this hol-
iday season, and are wondering
how to make the transition from
cuddly newbie to member of the,
family, the Humane Society of Vero
Beach and Indian River County is
here to help.
Janet Winikoff, director of educa-
tion, said that many times people
don't realize what a big commit-
ment they are making when adopt-'
ing a new pet, especially during the


holidays.
'Animals need time to adjust to a
new home and 'they need time to
adjust to a schedule," said Ms.
Winikoff.
"It takes time' and patience to
adjust to a routine and, people
laugh, but it's really like having
another child. They're really a part
of your family and it's a big decision
to add another family member,"
said Ms. Winikoff.
Because adding an animal to a
family unit is such a big decision,
Ms. Winikoff recommends that no
pet be given as a surprise gift.

2009 calls for a good shaking of the roots


very so often, "A Good
Shaking of the Roots"
is needed to clear out
the old and make room for
the new and better things in
life that make us happy,
healthy, successful or
secure. A snake sheds its
skin now and then to renew
itself. A few years ago when
Yellowstone Park burned,
everyone looked at it as a
disaster. Since then, several
hundred old life forms have
reappeared that the rangers
thought were-extinct, along
a many new ones. The roots
were still alive. They just
couldn't break through all
the top growth that had
come later.
I was talking to my dear
friend, Betty Borden, on
Christmas Day and asked for
her predictions for 2009.
She said, "The economy
will recover, but it will take a
while. We need to stop
thinking about everything
that went wrong and begin
to take positive action that
will help our country and
the world."
We can't change what has
happened in thepast. But
we can create new causes


Hometowif News', resident
psychic James Tucker offers
his predictions for the new
year.
and missions like we sow
new seeds in the garden to
grow new life. With your
permission, here are the
new causes I will plant for all
of the readers of Hometown
News, our country and the
world. Then it is my job and
your job to water the seeds
through our positive
thinking (Thank you, Betty)
and rekindle the fire of
desire living in our hearts
and souls for a great new
year 2009. Here are a few


predictions:
We have survived the
greater challenges. We don't
learn from our victories. We
learn from our defeats,
hopefully, and move on to
renewed hope. With the help
of the government bailouts,
the economy will pick up.
There will be new regula-
tions and checkpoints set up
that will protect our money /
from less-thanr-honest
individuals Who will be held
accountable for honesty and
taken to task for anything
less.
I see a migration coming
our way of people living in
South Florida around the
Miami area. This will create
new markets, jobs and
spending, especially from
the Hispanic community.
They will also bring their
culture and stimulate new
interest in the spreading of
international arts and
sciences. Our area and
country is becoming fully
integrated and open to new
ideas and culture, from the
presidency on down.
Mother Nature is amaz-
ing. One of her recent
lessons given is to trim


down, eat less, waste less
and become healthier. I see
families growing more of
their own food. Do you want
to start a foolproof business?
Start building and selling
backyard greenhouses.
Many people are worried
about spiraling inflation. I
see that the new mindset of
thrift and less waste will
continue to keep inflation in
check. I believe that the
essential goodness in every
living soul will prevail. An
example of this is how we
are driving less and the price
of gasoline has been cut in
half or more. Being thrifty
pays.
Many local families have
suffered with their homes. It
has been tough. I believe
that the real estate market
will begin to recover and
turn around in the spring
and summer. Patience is the
greatest virtue.
Street crime has always
been with us. Take precau-
tionary measures when you
g out, even if for a loaf of
bread. Park in an open area
and lock your car. Take only

A R Frog legs and more


Thousands expected to attend this year's festival


-IHawk Levy


Precious Metals
A mere glance at a pre-
cious metals web-site will
confirm that 2008 has been
indeed a year of extreme
ups and downs. Gold hit its
peak of $1,020 an ounce
on March 17, just to drop
down to about $910 an
ounce on March 20, a
decline of $100 in just 3
days. That same month
platinum prices rose to
nearly $2,300 an ounce on
March 4, but by March 10,
fell $350 to about $1,950 an
ounce. What makes this
situation somewhat unique
is not the price of precious
metals, it's the volatility.
Major changes in the span
of a couple of weeks and in
some cases, a couple of
days, have left the con-
sumer and the refiner
somewhat shell-shocked.
A customer turning in metal
for refining on Monday
could see at much as a
$60 swing in that metal's
price by the end of the
week, making planning for
a business difficult. The
price pendulum also swings
the other .way-favoring
customers. At one point a
company paid $2,000 an
ounce for platinum, only to
have the price drop $1,000
before the refiner could
move the metal. In the end,
the violent price swings are
not good for anyone manu-
facturers, retailers, refiners
or customers. What goes'
up must come down.

Keep empty lots clean

Houses are being foreclosed on at record breaking
speed. With the foreclosures come vacant homes. With
the vacant homes come lawns that are not maintained.
Not a lot you, as a neighbor, can do, unless you end up
with snakes and rats, as I did.
There is something you can change though, the litter
thrown in our driveways. If you just pick it up and throw it
away, call these companies and request they no longer
throw their litter. It worked for me. You would think that
they would have the common sense not to throw papers
in driveways with foreclosure or for sale signs or that are
evidently vacant, but, alas, it is not so.
With the foreclosures, unkempt yards and litter in the
driveways, our property values are going down, down,
down. It's a little thing, just a phone call, or two or three
away, but, you can help clean up your neighborhood. And
your neighborhood may be mine.
Thanks to Hometown News for not being an offender.

Native American discrimination?

We are entering 2009 and the group most discriminated
against is native Americans. Everybody is worried about
where they are from and what continent they- were born
on, but the truth is, the most discriminated group is the
group whowas here before everyone.
The Indian people need to get their land back and
everyone else needs to stop thinking it's theirs. Go back to
where, you came from. You brought poverty and crime.
Give the land back to who deserves it.

More ways ,to conserve

I'd like to give a couple more ideas on how to conserve
water.
I keep water in the refrigerator so I don't have to wait for
the tap water to' get cold, and I turn the faucet under the
i lie'bathroom to low, so I don't waste water when I
brush my teeth.

Stay warm in chilly weather

This is a grandmother giving advice to some younger
people.
Please cover up the little children. It gets chilly in the
stores and we have a couple more months of cooler
weather. And the. older folks should keep warm, too. We.
don't want you getting sick and passing your germs along.

Price gouging?

I would. like to know how the grocery stores get away
with rot reducing prices since gasoline prices hav6 gone
down drastically. They may tell you their supplies were
delivered when gas prices were up but what about fresh
produce that is delivered several times a week? As far as I
can see, the prices remain the same for those items.
Another example of price gouging?

IDems criticized

Democrats like to cause crisis, then take advantage of it
1by blaming Republicans,.
.(Former President) Jimmy Carter signed agreements
with Russia arid set our technical programs back 20 years.
Russia launched Sputnik when we could have done it
first.
(Former President Bill), Clinton cut back the military
and CIA. We had (the Sept. 11 incident).
Democrats created the mortgage crisis to take over con-
gress.
Now (President-elect Barack) Obama wants to sign
more treaties, probably to disarm, and said no weapons
in space. Someone, please tell him that several countries
have them now and our space technology would have to.
stop.
Are we back to (former President Jimmy) Carter days?
He doesn't have a (unintelligible) to give away. How about
giving all of New York to the United Nations?

Navigating around on your computer


ne of the "buzz-
Words" you're
bound to hear while
learning to use your
computer is "navigate."
Unfortunately, no one ever
seems to take the time to
explain exactly what that
means.
In a nutshell, "navigat-
ing" around your comput-
er simply means finding a'
file or folder somewhere
on your hard drive, CD
drive or other removable
drive. (Online, "navigat-
ing" to a particular Web
site means to open that
Web address in your Web
browser).
OK, that sounds easy
enough, but what's it really
mean? How does one
"navigate" to a particular,
file or folder on your hard
drive (or CD/floppy drive)?
To answer that, let's talk
a bit about your drives
(hard drive, floppy or CD)
and how information is
orgahized on them and
then compare that to a
regular, old-fashioned file
cabinet.
Each of your drives is
very similar to a file
cabinet drawer in the way
it stores data. Like a file
cabinet drawer, there are
folders (represented on the
computer, remarkably-
enough, by little manila
file folder icons), and there
are files that are stored in
the folders.


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY



On yourWindows
computer, each of your
drives, whether it's the.
hard drive, floppy drive,
DVD drive, CD or remov-
able drive (like a USB or
thumb drive) is designated
by a letter followed by a
colon.
. Your hard drive is
typically represented by a
C:. Your CD drive is
typically represented by a
D:. And additional drives
will be labeled E:, F:, G:,
etc.
Now, these letters can
and do vary frpm machine
to machine, but the rule is,
each drive gets a letter and
knowing what drive the
folder of file resides on is
the first step in navigating
to it.
Since each drive could
be considered similar to a
file cabinet drawer, when
you open a drive you will
see a number of manila
folder icons (arid some
"loose files" that are not in
folders). You can navigate
to a specific folder by first
selecting the drive the
folder is in and then
double clicking each folder
until you find your, file..


Keep in mind that folders
are usually "nested" within
one or more folders and to
find the folder or file you are
looking for you need to
know all of the folders it's in.
I know that must sound
complicated, but with
computers, it's really easy
once you keep in mind that
the drives are like file
cabinet drawers.
Now that we have the
foundation laid, let's take a
look at a real-life computer
example of just how you
would actually navigate
somewhere on your
computer and why.
Let's go; with an example
of downloading a file from
the Internet. Let's say you
are about to download a
virus removal tool from the
Web.
As you begin the down-
load a "save in" window will
usually appear asking
,where you want to save
'your download. Typically,
the "save in" field isa pull
down menu and when you
click on it, it will expand,
showing you all of the
computer drives listed,
starting with the desktop
and ending with any
folders on the desktop.
(The reason Windows lists
the desktop first is to make
it easier to find that
universal workspace (the
desktop) without having to
go to the C: drive and find
iron your own).


Navigate to where you
want to save the file by
double clicking each drive
and folder until you are
where you want to save it.
Let's say for this example
you have a folder on your
C: drive for downloads.
Let's also say that in that
downloads folder is
another folder called "virus
tools." To navigate to that
folder when downloading
the latest virus removal
tool, in the "save in" field,
double click the C: drive,
then the downloads folder
and then the virus tools
folder. Once "virus tools"
,,appearsipsthe "save in"
field, make a note of the
name of the file you are
downloading and click the
save button.
The file will then down-
load to that folder and
when it's done, you can
navigate back to it to run it
by double clicking you're
"my computer" icon, your
C: drive, your downloads
folder and then your virus
tools folder. And now you
kn6w whenever you read
"just navigate to whatever
on your computer." You will
have at least a fundamental
understanding of just what
that means.

Looking forward to a new, better year


promised I'd let you
know how I survived my
first holidays without
Roy.
As I write this, Thanksgiv-
ing has passed and Christ-
mas and NewYear's are still
ahead. Jan. 4 is our
,,anniversary. I know there
are rough days coming, but
there is also hope.
The weekend before
Thanksgiving, while people
still had not turned inward
toward family, as we do, I
did several fun things.
I went to a Lovin' Spoon-
ful concert with my friend,
Peggy, and we had a great
time listening to great
songs.
On Sunday I took a boat
ride up the Loxahatchee
River, something I'd never.
done. It was terrific and I
only wish I'd known about
it to take Roy.
There's the rub. It's a
great idea to have things
that are fun to look
forward to, but it's unreal-
istic td think that they will
make you forget your
loved one or make the
hurt go away.
Again, I have to remind
myself that there is no "get-

out-of grief-free card," no
early parole. Grief is a
process. You go through it
and it takes time. Still, there
are things I have tried to do
to make it a little easier.
I am still going for grief
counseling at Treasure
Coast Hospice and I can't
speak highly enough about
it.
Yes, the almost unbear-
able pain of the early grief
has subsided, however, I
still feel I am freelancing
my way through my life,
not sure what I'm supposed
to do or where I'm sup-
.posedto be. It all feels
formless and without
shape.
Soon after Roy died, I
started going to a personal
trainer. I need to get my
health back on track and I
needed a routine. I went
three times a week for two
months and it was terrific
and did me a lot of good. It


was also expensive.
Near the end of the two
months, I was talking
about it with a friend and
we decided to continue
what I'd been doing in our
community gym, three
times a week. We've been
doing it for 50 minutes,
three times a week and we
both enjoy the sense of
accomplishment and
opportunity to talk. We've
also signed up for a once-
a-week yoga class, begin-
ning in January.
Work has been a God-
send and keeps me
focused as deadlines
come up every week. My
work as the entertain-
ment reporter exposes me
to a lot of interesting
people and I have plans to
see some of the events so
that I have something to
look forward to.
I have also begun
talking to people who are
in the same boat. I have
met some new ones and
have friends who have
lost husbands in the last
year. Talking to people
who understand what
you're going through
helps you feel less alone


and makes you realize
that what you're feeling is
perfectly normal.
During the Thanksgiv-
ing weekend, I talked on
the phone more than
usual, because I needed
to hear people's voices.
I am learning to live
alone, although I don't
really like it. I have lots of
books and jigsaw puzzles,
which I find distract me
when I start to get upset
about something. I have
learned to. accept the
sadness and appreciate
those days when the fog
lifts a bit. I do laugh and I
am surprised, but I have
discovered that life goes
on and if you have the
chance to laugh, take it.
I know the rest of
December will be diffi-
cult. I am looking forward
to a new year, a better
year. As always, I'll keep
you posted.

charges of racketeering, an
illegal business activity.
During a six-month long
investigation, police discov-
ered that Ms. Okonski owned
business licenses for two
massage parlors in Vero
Beach, and other businesses
in Boynton, Beach and Day-
tona Beach Shores, where
they found women in Ms.
Okonski's employ being paid
for sdx.
"We only had one out of 60
people that went in with only
a massage," said Detective
Michael Dilks, with the Indi-
an River County multi-
agency criminal enforcement
unit.
"It's dirty money being
spread around with no taxes
being paid on it," Detective
Dilks said.'
"Someone who is running
a bakery or a legitimate busi-

ness isn't making as much
money as these women are
by breaking the law," he said.
The two massage parlors in
Vero Beach were Harmony
Dreams, located at,9050 U.S.
1 No. 2, and Amarige, located
at 1233 S. U.S. 1.
Lt. Darin Jones of the Indi-
an River County Sheriff's
Office said the first com-
plaints' about the Amarige
massage parlor came from
local business owners in the
same plaza.
Business owners noticed
that only males were loitering
in the area, according to the"
report.
In July, MACE detectives
conducted surveillance and
investigatory stops on several
men who .were observed
entering and leaving Amarige
and all the men admitted to
sex acts within the business,
according to the report.
According to the arrest affi-
davit, Ms. Okonski would
accept all inquires for


appointments at the parlors
in three counties by tele-
phone. She would -then tell
her employees What time to
meet their clients and would
sometimes indicate what
type of act was preferred by
the client and how much
money to charge.
"This was a group of peo-
ple who came to Indian River
County with the intent to
open up a massage parlor for
nothing else but for prostitu-
tion," said Lt. Jones.
"We could have walked in
there and arrested the girl
that day for prostitution and
run the business out of town,
but with the help of the Day-,
tona Beach Shores Police
Department, the Boynton
Beach Police Department,
the Vero Beach. Police
Department and the state
attorney's office, we were
able to put together the
entire organization and
arrest, with felony racketeer-
ing charges," said Lt. Jones.


Seven members of the
criminal enterprise were
arrested on Dec. 17. The list
* included, Ms.. Okonski, Jen-
nifer Alzate, Pamela Arnold,
Joaquin Desousa, Elsy Flores,
Rita McCahera and Marisol
Romero.
The arrests, of Maria Car-
dona, Claudia Bernal Corre-
dor, Elida Noguera and Lore-
leyVillella are still pending.
None of the women
appear to have Indian River
County addresses, police
said.
"They were trying to
expand their operation and
this was the wrong county to
do that in," said Detective
Dilks.
Also on Dec. 17, police
seized six vehicles and froze
approximately $30,000 in
funds from bank accounts.
Additional seizures are
expected.
Ms. Okonski's court date is
set for Jan. 30.

Wisdom teeth are known as third molars and are the last
teeth to erupt in your mouth between the ages 17 & 25
Complications from improper eruption may result in cysts,
crowding of surrounding teeth, infections arid the possibility
of tumors.
It is not wise to wait until wisdom teeth starts 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 before problems occur, preferabley during
young adulthood when teeth roots are small and chances f
complications are minimal. The best way to determine if your
teeth are likely to cause problems is to schedule an appoint-
ment with Dr. Colgan.

Dr Cqogan has the surgical training and
experience to perform wisdom tooth surgery
' safely with IV anesthesia to make the proce-
Sdure ompletely comfortable and stress free.

Hibiscus Village and are
experiencing the attention,
care and love most of us
take for granted," said
Suzanne Bertman, annual
support campaign co-chair
and president of the
Hibiscus Indian River
Foundation Board.
"We are not only shelter-

children, but repairing and
reuniting broken families;
preventing abuse by aiding
families in crisis; recruiting,
training and monitoring
foster parents; and, provid-
ing community mental
health services to children
and-families ravaged by
physical, mental and sexual


abuse, This year more than
ever we are looking to our
friends and neighbors,
church and civic groups and
businesses through the
campaign to help us
overcome mounting
expenses, government
cutbacks and an escalating
number of families and
children desperately
needing our services due to
the economic climate."
From primary prevention
to the most intensive
interventions, the vision of
Hibiscus Children's Center
is to identify strengths and
capacities that are innate in
all family systems. Hibiscus

From page Al
Instead, there are "getting-
to-know-each-other" rooms
at the Humane Society so
that people can see if they
will get along with their
potential new pet.
"It provides an opportuni-
ty to see how everyone will
react," said Ms. Winikoff.
Dogs can live to about 15
years old and cats can live to
20 years old, so understand-
ing the long-term commit-
ment is very important, said
Ms. Winikoff.
"As hard as it is for a per-
son to turn in their animals
because they can't take care
of them, it's even harder for
the animal," she said.
"Holidays are often a real-
ly hectic time and families
schedules are often different
with all of the parties and
the shopping and no school,
so I always say to those peo-
ple who have adopted new
pets during the holidays,
please make sure to modify
your schedule and give your


pet time to acclimate," said
the director of education.
Establishing a good train-
ing regimen is vital to sur-
viving the first five to six
months with your new pet,
said Jacque Petrone, the
owner of Professional Ani-
mal World HALO Rescue in
Sebastian.
"Crate training makes all
the difference in the world
because it lets your animal
have their own area," said
Ms. Petrone.
"When a new pet comes
into a home, he doesn't
know what to do or where
he's allowed to go. Having a
crate helps with the anxiety
and stress of a new home
and can also help with potty
training," she said.
"One time we adopted out
a litter of 12 puppies, and all
but one of the families
decided to crate train their
puppy. The lady said she
didn't believe in keeping her
dog in a crate and eight to
nine months later, they were
wishing they had, because
that dog was chewing up
their furniture and it wasn't


properly housebroken. It
never learned boundaries
inside of the house," said
Ms. Petrone;
Obedience training class-
es are offered at the
Humane Society and are
another good way to bond
with your pet and learn
together.
The six-week long class is
$35, or free if your pet was
adopted at the Humane
Society, said Ms. Winikoff.
A chat with an animal
behaviorist is just a phone
call away, she added.
"If people have questions,
we offer free pet behavior
counseling and our pet
behaviorist will talk with
you about the problems you
may be having and possibly
set up an appointment," she
said.
"Because that's really
what we are here for; to keep
pets and people together,"
said Ms. Winikoff.

teering at the Humane Soci-
ety, call, (772) 388-3331.

Treasure Coast top 10 sports stories


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
Another year has come
and gone and so it's time
to reflect on the most
important stories in the
news arena the ones
that filled the sports
pages last year.

1. Dodgers say good-
bye, Orioles don't say
enough. For more than 60
years, the Dodgers.called
Vero Beach their spring
training home. With the
team opting for more lav-
ish surroundings in Ari-
zona, Vero Beach had one
last chance to cheer on its
heroes before the team
headed out west for the
final time. Fittingly
enough, the Dodgers lost.
More than 7,000 people
were in attendance that
day with the atmosphere
befitting a playoff game
in October more than a
meaningless game in
March. The game fea-
tured tons of offense with
both teams combining
for 22 runs and 24 hits,
and several lead changes.
In the end, the Astros
came away with a 12-10
win.
With the Dodgers gone,
city and county officials
turned to the Orioles as a
possible tenant for Hol-
man Stadium. An offer
was made in October, but
recently, Baltimore sent
back a revised contract
that was rejected by the
Indian River County
Commission on Dec. 16.,;
The offer was rescinded
leaving Vero Beach with-
out spring training for the
foreseeable future.

baseball stars of tomorrow during the opening.game last February against the Los
Angles Dodgers.


2. Third time is charm
for Vero Beach girls
lacrosse. While the Vero
Beach girls wrestling
team's performance was
outstanding, the accom-
plishments of their class-
mates was a little bit bet-
ter. After years of coming
up short, the Vero Beach
girls lacrosse squad has
become the team to beat
in Florida, winning their
third state title in a row.
After two crowns in the
Florida Lacrosse League,
the Indians crushed the
Park Vista Cobras 18-2 in
the inaugural Florida High
School Athletic Associa-
tion State Lacropse Cham-
pionship.
Vero Beach quickly
asserted itself in the finale,
scoring two goals in the
first 37 seconds. The team
carried an 11-2 lead into
the locker room and


scored seven more in the
second half to cap the
scoring and the season.
First-year phenom
Courtney Swan led the
Indians with five goals to
cap a stellar freshman sea-
son where she found the
net 66 times.
Like it had in years past,
the Indians' state champi-
onship road ran through
Lake Brantley. In 2006, the
Indians defeated the Patri-
ots 7-6 to capture the pro-
gram's first title. Last sea-
son, the schools met again
in the championship with
Vero Beach pulling away
for a 19-10 victory.
This season, while the
teams met in the semifi-
nals, the result was the
same, with the Indians
winning, 18-6.
3. Vero girls wrestling
team makes it two in a
row. After winning the


state championship in
dominating fashion in
2007, the Vero Beach girls
wrestling team had a
tougher road to travel in
trying for the repeat. The
Indians were unable to
field a full team, leaving
four weight classes out of
14 unfilled.
Despite the disadvan-
tage, Vero Beach made it to
the state tournament, but
was behind by two points
heading into the finals.
Cherelle DeBose pinned a
wrestler who had defeated
her three times to keep
Vero Beach's chances alive
and Savanna Duffy, Mer-
cedes McKenzie and Brid-
get Siers also won their
final matches to help pro-
pel the Indians to the
crown.
The foursome also won
individual championships

Abstract images


'freeartist

it's Sue Dinneon's first solo
exhibit in 10 years


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH Fine art
painters often get their
inspiration from the
world's natural beauty,
and Vero Beach artist Sue
Dinenno is no exception..
Her paintings, often fea-
ture serene seascapes,
lush landscapes and bril-
liantly-colored flowers.
But Mrs. Dinenno's most
recent works, which will
be showcased in an exhib-
it at the Artists Guild
Gallery entitled "Paradise


in the Abstract," are borne
of the strong emotional
upheaval she endured as a
result of her mother's fail-
ing memory. They boldly
depict a world in which
reality had taken on new
meaning.
The exhibit of Mrs.
Dinenno's oil and acrylic
works will be featured at
the gallery located at 44
Royal Palm Pointe ift Vero
Beach during. January. A
special: opening reception,
which is free and'open.to
the public, is set for Friday,

Aries-March 21-April 19
The main reason for your
success is all the hard work
and devotion to duties.
Whether it is family, work or
friends, you always sense
what needs to be done and
then do it. You are commit-
ted, involved and passionate.
You are highly deserving of
life's greatest riches. Keep it
up and 2009 will be your
best year ever.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Taking care of family and
others with greater needs
than your own just recon-
firms your large heart and
spirit What you give out
always comes back multi-
plied, although you don't do
it for personal gain. It just
shows what a fine person
you have grown into. Happy
New Year. Watch your
finances. Don't go overboard
on "can't live withouts."
Quality time is far greater
than a quantity of things. The
rewards of the personal
touch are great for all.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your creativity is especially
strong now. You will. meet
life's challenges in the New
Year with your usual style
and luck. Why? Because you
have a guardian angel
watching over you. Most of
the things you worry about
are not going to happen any-
way. The key is to take care
of details as they arrive so
you don't have to put out
any forest fires later.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You have approached the
holidays with gratitude and
thankfulness for all you
accomplished the past year.
You have a firm direction for
the new one coming. Keep a
strong focus on your top
goals and you will do much
more. The way you back up
your plans with action will
continue to insure success.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
The ideas continue to flow
and the light bulbs keep on
turning on. One good idea is
always the birth mother to
several others hanging
around. Get ready for more.
The New Year will be filled
and exploding :with many
new opportunities. The key is
to focus on the ones that
make you the happiest first.
Success is Sure to follow.

Scopes
From page B1
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept 22
When you set a plan in
motion and your heart is in it,
move it forward. Refuse to let
worry, doubt or indecision set
in or get you sidetracked. If
you aren't sure, ask for advice
or just wait. Then with
renewed clarity, move for-
ward again. Pain, hardship or
struggle is your gut instinct
telling you to be patient.
Heed this warning.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You have grown so much
spiritually the past year. Why?
Because you are more cen-
tered. You worry less. Your
self-confidence has
increased. You have much
new respect from family and
friends. The main reason for
this is all the love you show
to others. When you are
happy others are happy. You
are so much fun to be
around.


spirit is strong. This is more
than enough energy to pro-
pel you forward toward your
dreams. You have a high
blessing on your life.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Creative projects want to
grow and become fruitful.
Use your imagination. Be
inventive. Bring your ideas,
visions and inspirations into
reality now. Make them real.
The only limits are what you
place on yourself. Dare to be
different. Now others want to
hang around just to see what
you are dreaming up, next.
You were born for greatness.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
With the sun, Mars and Pluto
in Capricorn, you are super-
charged and ready to roll in
the New Year. Be totally hon-
est with yourself on your
desires. Clear up old issues.
Begin the New Year lighter
and hopeful. Get straight to
the point. Move ahead and
watch the universe bless you
with results even you will be
amazed.at.


commitment. Now energy is
in your favor. Move out of
your comfort zone. You have
an opportunity for awesome
growth. Now, it's all up to you
to make it happen.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
There is a silver lining behind
every cloud, as the old saying
goes. When one plan doesn't
work out, it means a better
one is just ahead. Persever-
ance is your best friend. You
have plenty of it. Quitting is
not an option. Try looking at
things from a different angle.
Move forward when the
vision is clear. You will contin-
ue to overcome any new
challenges with ease.

Mrs. Dinenno, who has a
second home in California, is
the current president of the
350-member Vero Beach Art
Club. She has enjoyed active
participation in art galleries
and museums in California,
Utah andVero Beach, and has
studied art with renowned
watercolorists and oil
painters.
"I'm really excited about it
and one of the reasons we
moved toVero Beach was due
to the wonderful art activities
and galleries here," Mrs. Din-
neno said. "Most of the artists
in town have been my friends
for years and years."
She noted that serving as
art club president is "right up
my alley," which combines
her love for art with knowl-
edge of business administra-
tion.
In fact, her duties oversee-
ing the club's business affairs
and for six years, chairing the
highly-regarded 'and well-
attended "Under the Oaks"
art show at Riverside Park,
kept her too busy to assemble
a body of work sufficient for
her own exhibit. This exhibit
is her first in 10 years.
The abstract and impres-
sionistic styes of the paint-
ings featured in "Paradise in
the Abstract"'are a digression
from her usual style, she said.
"I haven't painted abstract,
but my whole perception on
the world changed when my
mother came to live with me
in May because she has
Alzheimer's.
"I discovered I couldn't
paint realistically anymore. I
needed to be doing some-
thing bolder, somethingwith-
out borders, because I
thought I was going to
explode. So I did it on can-
vas," Mrs. Dinenno
explained.
As her mother's memory
and behavior became inex-
orably altered due to her pro-
gressive illness, Mrs. Dinenno
found that her own world had
now changed.
"When Mom came to live
with us I thought, well, it's my
turn now to care for her and it
turned my life around," she
said.
"I found it interesting
how much I empathized
with her. the total loss of the
life she had had and making
decisions, even about com-
ing and going. It helped me
find grace and I sought
therapy in my art," Mrs.
Dinenno said.
The results are stunningly
beautiful artistic depictions
of loss, hope, healing and
. the natural beauty that
remains untouched, by the
human condition.
Mrs. Dinenno's mother is
now very happily living in an
assisted living ,facility with
services for the memory
impaired.
For more information
about the exhibit, call Sue
Dinenno at (772) 234-4925 or

South Fork, Vero Biach and
Fort Pierce Westwood. All
three teams had successful
seasons, solidifying their
places among the state's
best.
Vero Beach delivered its
second consecutive district
title with a 27-24 victory
over Seminole Ridge. The
Indians fell behind early on,
but stormed back to tie the
game at 10 on Shawn O'
Dare's 53-yard touchdown
strike to Clayton Hall lace in
the first quarter.
The duo hooked up again
in the second quarter to put
the Indians ahead for good
with Patrick Baker's 22-yard
field goal proving to be the
difference.
Vero Beach won its Region
2-6A quarterfinal inatchup
with Park Vista before falling
to Royal Palm Beach the
next week to finish the sea-
son at 9-3.
Fort Pierce Weswood fol-
lowed down a sinilar path.
The Panthers woa their sec-
ond district crown in a row
with a 14-7 win ver Sebast-
ian River and was even more
impressive .in their playoff
opener..
T .aking on Boca Raton,
Westwood raced out to, a7-0
lead in the opening
moments of the game when
Khalil Mack snatched an
errant handoff out of the air
and stormed 33 yards for the
touchdown.
From there it was the Jer-
rell Washington show, as the
tailback found the end zone
four times, including an 11-
yard score to give Xestwood
the 35-28 victory in over-.
time.'
The Panthers couldn't

Westwood's 10-2 season

faithful.

district, champs, South Fork
remained in the playoff
hunt longer than the other
area elite.
After defeating Spanish
River to reach the postsea-
son, South Fork traveled to
Melbourne to face a Palm
Bay team that had lost just
once all season.
Unfazed, the Bulldogs
jumped out in front 21-7
after Ronnie Nelson con-
nected with Jason Thomp-
son on an 11-yard touch-
down. Palm Bay rallied to
pull within 21-20, but inex-
plicably went for two to try
and win the game.
The Pirates pass attempt
was knocked down in the
end zone, giving South Fork
its second playoff victory in


the program's 27-year histo-
ry.
No. 3 came the following
week, as South Fork raced to
an early lead over Atlantic
and held on for a 35-28 vic-
tory. Willie Walker scored
three touchdowns, includ-
ing one with just over four
minutes left in the game to
seal the win.
Unfortunately, the Bull-
dogs magic carpet ride
ended in the Region 4-5A
title game against state pow-

season at 9-4 was quite the
trick.
5. Sebastian River
wrestler pins down state
title. In 2007, Vince Maul
made it to the final match of
the 2A state tournament in
the 160-pound weight class,
only to lose to Tom Timothy
of Brandon in a grueling
bout.
A year later, Maul went on
a quest to erase those mem-


ories. He went through the
regular season undefeated
before taking first in the 171-
pound class at the District
13-2A tournament. Next up
was the Region 4-2A compe-
titionwhere Maul upped his
record to 36-0, earning the
tap against Musa De'Reese
of Titusville.
At the Florida High School
Athletic Association finals,
Maul made short work of his
first-round opponent before
winning by default in the
quarterfinals. The semifinals
featured Maul taking on
Jacob Harmer of Gainesville,
who himself sported an


impressive 55-0 record.
The match went into over-
time before Maul pulled out
the victory. On Feb. 16 -
almost a year to the day that
the Sebastian River wrestler
lost in the state finale a year
earlier Maul pinned Kyle
Provencal of Charlotte in
just 44 seconds to become a
state champion.

team has had over the past
few seasons including the
school's second district title
in 2008 several reported
instances off the field has
overshadowed all the Sharks
have achieved on it.
Most notably was the
reported hazing incident
that took place at a Planta-
tion hotel in March while
the team was participating
in a tournament. Five team
members were suspended
from school while head
coach George Young and
assistant Chris Rahal were
placed on a leave of
absence.
Following an investiga-
tion, three of the students
were sent to the Alternative
Center for Education in lieu
of a formal expulsion while
Rahal was issued a repri-
mand for not reporting the
incident immediately to
,administration.
Young took the hardest


hit, as the only head.coach
in Sharks' history was
relieved of his position.
Several months later, two
Sebastian River Middle
School eighth-grade soccer
players were charged with
two felony counts each,
including attempted sexual
battery on a child, stem-
ming from a reported inci-
dent involving a six-grade
teammate.
Saint Edward's also gar-
nered attention, but for all
the wrong reasons. The
school hired one of the top
coaches in the state in Leroy
Foster only to dismiss him a
short time later after details
of his sexual trysts with a
Pahokee secretary while he
was .coach there came to
light.
7. Pirates sail to super
season. While classified as a
Pee Wee football team, the
Port St. Lucie Pirates Pop
Warner squad played like

Veetbes.Ua emitane t hlpie


giants for most of the sea-
son.
The team steamrolled
through their first 15 con-
tests, winning games with
relative ease. Case in point
was the Pirates' 34-6 victory
over the Flagler Bulldogs to
capture the Southeast
Region title. Port St. Lucie
dominated on both sides of
the ball with Juan Larralde
rushing for two touchdowns
with Jereny Miret adding on
of his own
Defensively, Josh Pantale-
on and Demond Cain both
returned interceptions for
touchdown, in helping the
Pirates secure their spot in
the 52nd Pop Warner Super
Bowl.
In Orlando, Port St. Lucie
faced one of the top pro-
grains in the country in the
Union Road (N.C.) Jaguars.
The Pirates didn't blink and
held ihe advantage on three
separate occasions before
succumbing to the Jaguars
28-22.

of its 33-0 win over the Port
Arthur Cowboys in the third-
place game to finish the sea-
son at 16-1.
8. Martin County and St.
Lucie West Centennial roll
to bowling crowns. While
both the Martin County
boys and St. Lucie Centen-
nial girls bowling teams
each won a state bowling
championship, the squads
traveled down slightly dif-
ferent lanes to reach their
destinations.
After having already
established themselves as
one of the best teams in the
state, the Eagles made it
official with a dominating
run through the tourna-
ment. .Like it had done all
season, Centennial made it
look easy, beating Gulliver
Prep and Cypress Creek in
opening-round action.
After dispatching of
Seabreeze in the semifinals,


St. Lucie West faced Oviedo
for the gold. Centennial pol-
ished off the state power in
five games to finally add a
team state championship to
its trophy case.
The team had come up
short in their three previous
trips to the finals with only
Amanda Stinehart's.individ-"
ual crown in2006 to show
for their efforts.
Unlike Centennial, Martin
County was making its first
trip to the state tourney. It
looked to be a quick one
after the Tigers suffered a
loss on the first day of com-
petition to Oviedo.
Martin County quickly
rebounded and didn't lose
again with each victory
being more impressive than
the one before. However,
the team had to defeat
Oviedo twice in order to
avoid going home empty
handed.
The Tigers did just that,
securing the title with
impressive performances by,
T.J. Baral, Tyler Westling,:
Matt Gauroniak and Casey


Dockerill.
9. Tigers' basketball team
claw their way to regional
final. Used to exceptional
starts, the 2007-08 version
of the Martin County boys
basketball team was no dif-
ferent, as the Tigers jumped
out to an 8-0 mark. After
suffering a narrow 87-73
defeat to state power W.T.
Dwyer, the quickly
rebounded to defeat a solid
Sebastian Rive; team to
move back into the win col-
umn.
From there, the victories
continued to pile up with
Martin County advancing to,
the district title game for the
first time since 2003. Facing
Dwyer for the crown, the
Tigers won Round 2, 73-69
to earn its first champi-
onship in six years.
Martin County brushed
aside Treasure Coast in the
Region 4-5A quarterfinal
before meeting Dwyer for
the third time. The game


was even closer than the
previous two with the Tigers
eking out a I-point win.
The regional final proved
to be a little bit tougher, as
the Tigers couldn't over-
come a decided height dis-
parity and lost 74-56 to top-
ranked Fort Lauderdale-
Dillard.
The Tigers still finished
the season an impressive
25-2.
10. South Fork and John
Carroll reach state baseball
finals. Making the trek to
the FHSAA finals in Saraso-
ta, both South Fork and
John Carroll illustrated the
strength of Treasure Coast
baseball 'to their con-
stituents across the state.
, Capping their best season
in school history, South
Fork earned a spot in the 5A
title game with a scintillat-
ing 3-0 victory over Niceville
in the semifinals, as Tyson
Young held the opposition
to one hit.


Squaring off. against
Dunedin, South Fork fell
behind 2-0 before rallying
for single runs in the third
and fifth. The team
appeared poised to win the
game, loading the bases
with no outs in the seventh
inning.
However, the Bulldogs
couldn't capitalize and the
Falcons pulled out a 3-2 win
in 10 innings. South Fork
finished 27-6, capturing
both the district and region-
al titles along the way.
John Carroll had an excel-
lent season as well. The
Rams were the beneficiaries
of a superb outing by ace T.J.
Mullins, who allowed just
four hits and one earned
run in a 5-2 victory over
Keystone Heights in the
state semifinals.
The team's luck ran out
after that, as shoddy play in


the field and a top-ranked
opponent was more than
the Rams could overcome.
John Carroll committed five
errors against a Plantation-
American Heritage team
tapped No. 1 by Baseball
America.
The 8-2 loss didn't dimin-
ish the team's 24-6 record,
which appears poised for
another run in 2009.

S- --- I Visit northern golf courses


One thing that I have
noticed with all of
this global warming
is that courses in south
Florida no longer over-seed
for the winter season. You
have to travel a little north
to get those lush rye greens,
tees and more.
Fortunately for me, this
newspaper's circulation
covers courses well north of
my So-Fla. home.
This past week, I played
my final round of golf for
2008. I traveled a short hop


GOLF
JAMES
STAMMER


and a skip up the interstate
to Viera, home of Duran
Golf Club. Here I was met by
an extremely friendly and
helpful staff. I was almost
certain that the holiday
season had something to do
with it, but I was assured by


MTH ionl-Ahean ATASMiroTrin

S772-692-7797


the locals, that this is always
the case here.
The first thing that
jumped out at me was the
beautiful lush green of the
place. I had forgotten how
great the winter rye makes
everything look. Ball marks
on over-seeded greens seem
to heal more quickly and
putts roll very smoothly on
them. The tees provide you
plenty of places to stick that
peg in the ground without
having to look for that last
bit of actual turf. I was in
heaven.
Duran Golf Club, com-
pleted in 2005, is easily
accessible from just off
Interstate-95hinViera,just'
north of Melbourne. The
course features five sets of
tees, with the longest
playing to 7,151 yards, a
very stern test considering
how much wind blows
through the fairways.
For less-accomplished
players, one can easily find
a set of tees to match his or
her skill or mood for the
day. ..
The'course. also has a full
dining room, with a fantas-
tic menu complete with
early bird specials; a Sunday
jazz brunch and more. The
pro shop is filled with the
latest fashions and gear,
including a great selection

of golf balls, gloves and caps.
Also located at Duran is the Duran Academy of Golf, a
comprehensive instructional and coaching program
dedicated to golfers who are passionate about getting the
most out of their golf game.
The full-time staff of PGA instructors offer one-on-one
individual lessons and group sessions to clinics, multi-day
golf schools and high tech video swing analysis.
Duran also offers adult and junior activities, leagues and
more. The club truly serves as part of the community.
The name Duran comes from the land itself. Owned by
the Duda family for five generations, the relatively flat
prairie was used as a cattle ranch and sod farm. The name is
a combination of"Du" from Duda and ."ran" from ranch.
The course was designed by Lewis "Chip" Powell. His
keen eye for manipulating an area's natural weather
patterns and wind tendencies made him a logical choice to


incorporate design features that considered the wide-open
spaces of an established sod farm, along with the widely
variant coastal winds characteristic of the East Coast of
Florida.
The combination resulted in holes that can have as much
as a five-club difference from day to day.
To build a golf course on a piece of property this flat, and
void of all but one tree at the start, requires moving and -
shaping more than a million cubic yards of earth. The result
is a course with links characteristics, including rolling
terrain, mounded greens and 15 ponds.
The use of native grasses, the importation of a several
thousand oaks, cypress and native palms give the course
character.
The course is very young, and still maturing. Many of the
green complexes will benefit from the growth that years of
care bring. The trees on the course are young and once they
begin to fill out, will provide needed definition. Until then,
the course can be very forgiving. That is, unless the wind
blows!
The course starts you off on the right foot, a pleasant par-


5 with no surprises. I began my day with a rare birdie. The
third is home to the only tree standing when construction
began. The lone palm stands guard on a small peninsula
that jets out into the lake and warns golfers of the danger
lurking behind.
On your way around the course you are greeted with a
pleasurable playing experience. Choosing the proper set of
tees gives one just enough challenge. I used most of the
clubs in my bag and quickly figured out that the wind
needed to be taken into account on every shot. My final
tally for the day was three birdies, with several pars and my
usual bogey or worse on a couple of holes. What a great way
to end the year.
Winter rates atDuran are very competitive, with
Florida residents enjoying a nice discount. The course is
located at 7032 Stadium Parkway, Viera. For more-
information, or to make a tee time, visit Duran GC on the
Web at www.durangolf.com or call friendly staff at (321)
504-7776.
