'Collar' ships now available

VERO BEACH Aero's chocolate
eyes darted from left to right, quickly
surveying the park in front of him.
Like a flash, he took off running
toward the edge of the property,
stopping just short of the road, then
running along the length of the
fence, barking happily, at birds.
Aero, a Boykin spaniel, is one of
about 180 dogs that enjoy the free-
dom of roaming in the Best Friend's
off-leash Dog Park in Vero Beach.
'All I have to say is the word 'park'
and he goes off and running to the
door," said Hank Westphalen, Aero's
owner.
Best Friend's is owned and man-
aged by Dogs for Life, a n6nprofit
organization dedicated to improv-
ing quality of life for people and
dogs.
Currently, access to the 4.5-acre
park is only available to members
for an annual fee of $250 per year for


Fighting
..child



abuse


in Vero


Beach
By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
VERO BEACH -While
headlines scream of
missing, abused or aban-
doned children, one
organization is taking a
stand.
The Exchange Club of
Vero Beach is one branch
of a national exchange
club organization dedi-
cated to preventing child
abuse.
Jennifer Peshke has
been involved with the
Vero Beach club for three
years and has found per-
sonal satisfaction by
becoming involved with
fundraisers to benefit
children's charities.
There are five club
chapters in Indian River
County.
"All the funds we 'raise
in Indian River County
go back to youth organi-
zations in Indian River
County and I think it's
important for people to
know that and want to
give toward their com-
munity," said Ms. Peshke.
The sale of Christmas
trees is the biggest
fundraiser for the 58-
year-old club and more
than $550,000 has been
donated to youth pro-
grams and charitable
organizations as a result.
Scott Wallace, presi-
dent of the Exchange
Club of Indian River, said
that being involved with
other businessmen and
women and community
members is fun, but the
focus on the children is
extremely important.
"We heard some horror
stories of children
abused, even in an
upscale community like
Indian River County and
it's hard to believe," said
Mr. Wallace.

'We have this thought that a dog of meager
means is still a good dog, and should be
able to enjoy themselves, too.


Shelly Ferger
Founder, Dogs for Life
the first dog and $50 for additional
dogs. The membership fees help
maintain the park and also partially
fund the other ventures of Dogs for
Life, pet-assisted therapy training
and training for assistance dogs.
In light of the economy, however,
Dogs for Life is now offering a limit-
ed amount of "collarships" to quali-
fying dogs and their families.
"We have this thought that a dog.
of meager means is still a good dog,
and should be able to enjoy them-
selves, too," said Shelly Ferger,
founder of Dogs for Life.
"We will also be trying out a pay-
ment plan to see if that will help
people, too," she said.


Some qualifications for member-
ship to the dog park include up-to-
date inoculations 'for the animal;
dogs must also be social and
neutered or spayed.
All dogs are screened for tempera-
ment before becoming members,
,said Ms. Ferger.
"People really like that we screen
each dog," she said. "Because, really,
if your dog is dog-aggressive, you
really don't want to find that out in a
dog park," said Ms. Ferger.
The park is divided into two open
areas, one for large dogs and one for
small dogs.
Trees shade many areas of the
park, a big bonus in the summer-


time,
said Ms. Ferger.
Aero and Mr. Westphalen have
been members of the park for three
years..
Boykin spaniels, like Aero, are
bred for hunting birds, said Mr.
Westphalen.
"That's why he runs around the
fence all the time. He thinks he's
flushing out the turkeys," Mr. West-
phalen said.
Having a place for Aero to run and
exercise safely is very important to
Mr. Westphalen.
"He needed a place that was

Wristwatches
The history of the wristwatch as we
know it today goes much farther
back than one might believe, for
the principles of the wristwatch go
back more than four hundred
years. Compared to that, though,
the history of the production wrist-
watch in the broadest sense of the
work is comparatively modest. It
covers scarcely more than a centu-
ry and a decade. An essential pre-
requisite for the birth of the wrist-
watch, or more appropriately, its
forerunners, was the watchmakers'
progress in terms of technology
and handicraft. Technical develop-
ments such as the invention of the
mainspring, made the portable
clock possible. The perfection of
the handcraft of ;watchmaking
resulted in, among other things, the
increasing miniaturization of
watches. The picture is unclear as
to when the first mainspring
"watch" was made, and we can
only be exact to within decades.
On the question of the first use of
mainsprings in watches one can
M'iyrdetermhiie that 'it must "have'
been in France in the late 15th cen-
tury. The name of Peter Henlein of
Nurnberg is always linked with the
first pocket watch. But Enrico
Morpurgo's researches have led
him, to conclude that portable
clocks already existed in Italy in
1475. Whatever the truth may be,
the turn from the 15th to the 16th
century is in any case a significant
point in time regarding the future of
the wristwatch. In plois in 1518 the
watchmaker Julien Coudrey (1504-
1530) is said to have made two
daggers with small clocks built into
their handles for Louis XI. In addi-
tion Emperor Charles V is also
mentioned in the history books of
watchmaking. He had a fondness
for mechanical devices and wore a
ring that, was decorated with a tiny
watch. In 1542 the mathematician
Ubaldi is said to have received a
similar piece of jewelry as a gift. In
addition, there certainly must have
been numerous other personalities
who wore a personal timepiece on
a ring but whose doing so was not
noted in the chronicles.

to work on is when I get
scored on is to keep myself in
the game," Kelley said, not to
get off focus.
"My teammates have been
great. They always keep me
going."
For Kelley, her first season
on varsity has been a pleas-
ant one. Once she made the
team, her biggest question
was how much action she
would see on the field.
"I was worried about get-
ting playing time arid not sit-
ting on the bench," Kelley
said. "I thought I would do
pretty.good."
Although a senior, Keller
had the same concerns.
"I've been playing it
(goalie) for six years, but this
is my first year on varsity,"
Keller said. "I've improved a
lot.
While both have done well
in goal, the duo has differing
views on the position. For
Keller just being in the game,
anywhere, anytime is accept-
able.
"It doesn't matter," Keller
said. "As long as he (Gibert)
puts me in."
Kelley feels all of the real
action is in net.
"I played a little bit in the
field, then I went back to
goalie," Kelley said. "It's just a
thrill. You're the last one the
ball goes to.
"It's all on you."
While* competition
inevitably arises when two
people share the same posi-
tion, both players have taken
it in stride and used the
opportunity to help each
other excel.
"It's made me step up my
game," Keller said.
Kelley agrees.
"It's been good," Kelley
said. "We encourage' each
other. We're really good
friends."
Both also share the belief
that Vero Beach can make
some serious noise in the
rapidly approaching districts
playoffs.
"I thought we would do
ell this oeaion," Kelley said;
"I knew a lot of the girls on
the team.
"'We could've done better. I
think if we keep up the com*
munication and the passing
we'll do pretty good."

We need driver's school

There needs to be a driver's school course that makes
yotdrive around with a DMV staff member for at least a
couple hours, not just driving around in the parking lot
for a few minutes and then handing over a license.
Every day I have people who don't use their signals,
cut people off, talk on cell phones, cross over three lanes
in front of traffic to get over to that turning lane, ride in
passing lanes and even speed up so that you can't pass.
When I spoke with an officer as to why people aren't
ever pulled over forithese things, all he could say is that
'95 percent ot his tickets were speeding.
If this is one thing people are getting penalized for
why aren't 'the other law-breakers getting penalized as
well?

/What happened to the rants?

.Ae peIdple hbtwriting in rants and.raves or has the
paper cut back on the space given to the column? I really
liokedforward to this section of the paper.
.Can't we vent our opinion anymore or are we just bot-
tled-ip until we explode? Hopefully, the column will get
back to the way it was.
Editor's note: The volume of responses to Rants and
Raves is down significantly. We print what we receive.
Readers?

Turn down the TV music

Why do all TV shows seem to have their background
music tuned up so high that most times you can't even
hear what the main characters in the movies have to say?
This never happened in the old-time movies, and it
didn't interfere with what the actors were saying.

Pull your pants up

I cannot stand to see these young men walking around
wi Thri"ffi'iffs-Tf ll-d"- up'to j stbel --theif buitt-
cheeks. It looks absolutely awful. I would never hire any
of these young men to do any kind of work for me.
I don't know if it's worse than the young girls with their
butt cheeks hanging out of the bottom of their shorts. I
j know where they can get a job: on the street or at a strip
club. The young people these days have no respect for
themselves or anyone else.
And, as a citizen, I'm scared to approach them to tell
them they look awful. In the olden days, we respected
the opinion of the older generations. Nowadays, the
young people, are completely disrespectful and treat
their parents like slaves. Parents spoil children rotten
then wonder why they are misbehaving.
I think the days of the leather strap and good old-fash-
ioned whippings should be brought back. Maybe then
these little punks would be more courteous.

Don't rush the holiday season

I w entinto 4d1store last week to buy a couple last-
minute Christmas items. They were picked over and torn
apart, and sitting next to a display of Valentine's Day
gifts. Why do .we have to rush through the holidays?
There is no, time to enjoy the now, because we are too
busy preparing onttwo months away.

Stop re-selling tickets

I thinkit's badhbusiness that the Dolphins tickets were
bought up by people who just want to re-sell them at a
ridiculous price.
What about the real-deal fans that can't afford $400
per ticket? The Dolphin organization should try to do
Something about this.

CIRCULATION AUDIT BY

VERIFICATION


Letter makes p


I recently received a letter
from a reader and it
made a profound
impression on me.
She discovered a lump on
the day that she read my
column about getting a
mammogram. She wants to
protect her privacy, so I have
edited her letter in the hope
that it may help others.
"I am in my early 50s and,
am ashamed to admit, never
went for a mammogram
because breast cancer does
not run in my family and I
have always been excep-
tionally healthy.
"Something about this
lump did not feel right. I
went into the kitchen and
found Hometown News on
the dining room table. I read
...yo .0.14ol tin^,..._... .. ...
"I was laid off from my job
earlier this year and do not,
have medical insurance.
"Then I read what you
wrote about the Depart-
ment of Health Florida
breast and cervical cancer
screening program. I
discovered that my county
health department (Indian
River) offered it. I called
them and was approved for
the program in one day. I
subsequently discovered


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL



that I was the last eligible
woman approved for the
program due to a shortage
of funds.
"I have since discovered
that I do have breast cancer
and have been approved for
Medicaid. I have had all of
the pre-operation tests and
throughout the ordeal, the
care has been exceptional.
"I had never heard of
these programs before and if
I did not learn about them
from your column, I do not
like to anticipate what may
have happened."
As you can see, the
program this reader turned
to has limited funds. It is so
important that you get the
,testing and treatment you
need, and I have turned to
another reader, Cheryl
Norman Caldwell, a volun-
teer with PinkTie Friends, to
explain that there is help out
there.
Pink Tie Friends helps
underinsured and unin-
sured breast cancer patients


found impact


in Indian River, Martin and
St. Lucie counties. While
they have not yet had
patients.from Indian River
County, they would like to,
and when they hear from
patients they will begin
seeking medical providers
there to work with Pink Tie
to help.
At this time, most patients
are referred to Pink Tie by
the Martin Memorial Health
System Breast Health
Navigator program. You can
find out more about Pink Tie
Friends at the Web site,
www.PinkTieFriends.org.
The cost of breast cancer
treatment can be so over-
whelming and what Pink Tie
does is negotiate with
providers baspd on the
medical needs of the patient
and what insurance cover-
age they may already have,
even if it isn't enough to
cover treatment.
"There is no set dollar rate
or standard amount paid,"
Ms. Caldwell said. "Breast
cancer is so unique to the
physiology of the patient,
which is fundamental to
why a cure is so elusive."
In addition, Soroptomists
of Stuart, the American
Cancer Society and the
Susan G. Komen Founda-


tion are resources for
women who cannot afford
mammograms or need help
affording treatment.
I was so moved by the
courage of the reader who
took the steps to find out
about the program and go
on Medicaid. She had
always worked, done all the
right things and had had
health coverage. This was a
crisis not of her making, and
it is happening to people all
over this country.
She took the steps
necessary to give herself the
best chance at survival.
No woman should put off
a mammogram if it is
recommended for her age
group, regardless of medical
history. Most breast cancer
is not hereditary.
If you have already found
a lump, get treatment
immediately. Call the
organizations listed. If they
can't help, perhaps they can
lead you to someone who
can. Do not put your life in
jeopardy.

Managing spam is never an easy task


E very day when I open
my e-mail, I am
flooded with spam.
I get messages trying to
sell me everything from
Viagra to discount mort-
gages to memberships at
adult Web sites.
I even get an occasional
message from a "dethroned
prince" from Nigeria
promising that if only I
help him (by giving him my
bank account information)
he'll be able to get access to
his frozen assets and give
me several million for my
troubles.
It's gotten to the point
that out of 60 to 70 mes-
sages, only a handful are
legitimate.
How is it that I, a com-
puter fixer with decades of
experience, can get flooded
with spam?
Don't I, of all people,
know how to manage this
scourge any better?
Frankly, no. But it's not
from lack of trying.
Unfortunately, just about
everything I've tried to
stem the flow of spam has
had either negative or
short-term effects.
I've found the most
effective way (for me
anyway) is to just scan the
subject headers and click
the delete button and nuke
all the unwanted e-mails
one by one.
I know what you are
thinking. Many of you are


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


successfully using some
sort of spam filter and are,
thinking, "If Sean would
just switch to this method,
all of his spam woes would
be over."
All I can really say to that
is thanks, but no thanks.
Over the years, as I have
tried one method after
another to manage
unwanted e-mail, I've
noticed a common thread:
many spam filters are too
aggressive and have a
tendency to delete mes-
sages I actually want.
Many spam filters will
look at the sender's domain
name and filter the mes-
sage that way. The problem
with that is I may actually
want messages from that
domain and the spam filter
can unintentionally red flag
messages that I actually
want to read.
An example of that would
be the time I was trying to
refinance my home. My
father, being ever helpful,
sent me an e-mail listing
the mortgage rates of a
certain lender. The spam
filter spotted the keywords
"low mortgage rates" and
filtered that message as
spam. Then, since the


offending message came
from my dad's e-mail
address, all future mes-
sages from him were
filtered.
The really frustrating
thing was that I didn't know
my dad's e-mail was getting
filtered, so I didn't know he
was trying to e-mail me
until he called, annoyed
that I was "ignoring his e-
mail."
Other methods have had
mixed results, too.
One question that always
comes up is "how do these
spammers get your e-mail
address in the first place?
It's not like you go to
some site and sign up for-
spam. I've seen cases
where people get new e-
mail accounts and within a
week, the flow of spam
begins.
How's that?
There are dozens of ways
e-mail addresses end up as
targets for spammers, but
I'll just cover a couple.
Forwarding e-mail
messages to everyone in
your address book (or
actually corresponding
with someone who engages
in this practice) can expose
your address to the spam-
mers, because as the
messages gets forwarded
on and on, so do all the
addresses listed in the e-
mail. Then, once they're
out in cyberspace, there are
a number of ways that the


addresses can get harvest-
ed from that e-mail.
Another method is the
old "random e-mail
address" trick. What they
do is use a computer
program to generate
thousands of e-mail
addresses using random
letters and numbers before
the "at" (@) symbol and
domain name. Then they
send out test messages to
these randomly-generated
addresses; the ones that
don't get rejected by the
mail system as a bad
address, they keep.
They end up with a list of
addresses they know go
somewhere. If you have
ever gotten an e-mail with
no subject and no message
it's possible that that's
where that message is
coming from, and unfortu-
nately, by the time you get
the message, it's too late.
They already know that the
e-mail address is a good
one.
Until I find a method to
manage the flow of spam
that does not have unwant-
ed side effects, I guess I will
just continue to just delete
them as they come in. At
least I don't have to walk
out to the mailbox in the
rain to get my junk mail.

Holman Stadium no

longer field of dreams


it breaks your heart.
W ith those simple,
yet powerful
words, the late
A. Bartlett Giamatti
began his stirring and
compelling piece on
baseball, "The Green
Fields of the Mind."
Although it was written
more than three decades
ago, the sentiment
behind it is still as real
and vivid as the day and
summer that inspired it.
I think of that now as
Vero Beach prepares for
its first spring training
without the Los Angeles
Dodgers. It is hard to
believe that the same
dugouts that housed hall
of famers and all-stars
alike will be empty. I truly
believed that if you build
it, they would come.
Then again, I also believe
in Santa Claus and the
Easter Bunny.
I remember my first
experience at Dodger-
town. Growing up, I had


heard tales of when "Dem
Bums" inhabited Brook-
lyn, and since Ebbets
Field was long gone
before I ever picked up a
bat, I appreciated the link
to that past that Holman
Stadium provided.
The stadium itself
seemed untouched by
time. With its simple
design and close proximi-
ty to the players, I envi-
sioned a time when
Brooklyn's world champi-
onship banner still flew
and the game of baseball
was still just that a
game.
I don't remember who
won that day. In reality,
all patrons of baseball
came out winners. While
spring training games
don't count in the stand-

ering a marijuana grow
house after a domestic vio-
lence call.
"The MACE unit has been
real busy. There's just.lots of
stuff going on," said Deputy
Jeff Luther, Indian River
Sheriff's public information
officer.
ITwo days before Christ-


mas, the .MACE unit, which
consists of law enforcement
personnel from the county
sheriff's office and a Vero
Beach Police officer, arrested
eight people on charges of
possession and or sale of.
cocaine.
An active warrant remains
for one more suspect, said
Deputy Luther.
An officer from the Sebast-
ian Police Department used
to be involved with the unit,
but is now focused on fight-
ing crime in Sebastian.
During the two-week long
investigation, undercover
officers purchased and sold
crack cocaine to target


street-level drug users and
sellers in known drug areas
in Indian River County..
"We're trying to create a
happier, environment for
people in our community,"
said Deputy Luther.
"There are a lot of things,
like stealing, that are on the
rise right now, first because
of the economy, but second
because of all the drugs out
there," he said.
On Dec. 27, law enforce-
ment responded to a call on
Fifth Avenue in Vero Beach
regarding a woman telling
neighbors that her husband
was going to kill her.
When officers went to


check on the situation, they
entered the woman's resi-
dence at 1700 Fifth Ave., and
found her unharmed, but
surrounded by marijuana
plants.
The MACE Unit obtained a
search warrant and found
about 80 marijuana plants
growing in the house.
Three people, Reinaldo
Faba Cuevas and Nancy
Maria Mena Garcia, the resi-
dents of the house, and Oval-
do Trejo of 3935 186th St.,
Miami Gardens, were arrest-
ed on charges of cultivation
\of marijuana and possession

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

The pigeons were homing pigeons,

would be placed for adoption if the owner

Cruise ship employee missing
Less than one hour after ringing in the
NewYear, a man fell into the ocean from the
deck of the Carnival cruise ship Sensation,
according to officials.
Antonio Matabang of California, an
employee of the Carnival cruise line, was off
duty at the time of the incident and fell
more than 80 feet into the water.
The Coast Guard searched
unsuccessfully for the 26- Persor
year-old until Friday evening rs
when officials called off the
search.
Two weeks ago, a woman
was found to be missing
aboard a cruise ship in the
Gulf of Mexico. The search for
her has also been called off
and she is presumed to be
dead. Anne Shepp(

were accompanied by the
excitement and anticipa-
tion of a new major-league
season about to begin, last
spring's Dodgers' finale
had a completely different
air to it. Each out brought
with it a sense of forebod-
ing, a step closer to the
inevitable.
The Dodger players tried
their best to send the
7,327 fans in attendance
home happy. Los Angeles
jumped out to a 1-0 lead
and later held a 5-3
advantage. A five-run sixth
inning put the Astros
ahead 10-6, but again the
Dodgers tried to rally.
In his first at-bat of the
spring, Preston Mattingly
homered before Rafael
Furcal blasted a triple.
Andre Ethier smoked
another long ball and the
Dodgers closed to within
10-9. Unfortunately, the
bullpen couldn't keep it
close, giving up two runs
in the top of the ninth.
Los Angeles tallied one
more in their half of the
inning, but fell 12-10..
With the Dodgers
headed to Arizona, there
seemed to be a glimmer of
hope that city and county


toofa;".. w'


& mU8I1AL SAVAOT

officials could lure anoth-
er ball club to come to
Vero Beach. While no team
could ever completely fill
the void that Los Angeles
has left, baseball would
still live on through
Holman's new tenant.
Now that, too, seems
like a pipe dream. You
would think that the
Baltimore Orioles who q
haven't exactly blazed a
trail of success in their ,.
history would be happj
to play somewhere that ig
all about the past. For a
franchise that has mos.tlyj
occupied the cellar in
recent years, a move to
Vero Beach could be seer
as a new beginning.
The team apparently
didn't think so, angering if
local officials and possible
fans with its cavalier
attitude during the "
negotiating process. While
there is still hope the twot'
sides can iron out an 1
agreement in the future, ;-
there seems to be more of
a chance that Kirk Gibson
will come out of retire-
ment.
Like Bart said, "It breaks
your heart."
It was designed to.

Attracting hummingbirds


X long with colorful
flowers, gardens are
so made up of
strategically placed rocks,
figurines, low- voltage or
solar lighting and attractive
bird feeders. Attracting birds
to the yard is more than just
fun, for many, it is an
amazing hobby.
One of the most interesting
and challenging birds to .
attract is the hummingbird.
They are called hummers for
short. These delicate crea-
tures are hard to attract at
first, but once you get a few
to find your feeder, you're in
for a treat.
Hummers are very
interesting creatures as their
wings flap at an amazing 55
times per second and they
can fly at 25 miles per hour.
Hummingbirds have a
lifespan of about four years
on average, but have been
known to live as long as 12
years. Hummers are very
territorial and if you attract
several to your feeder at the

same time, they will fight for
their space.
There are several ways to
attract htimmers to your
garden and the first step is to
purchase a hummingbird
feeder. These feeders are
available at almost all garden
outlets and are available in
many styles from a simple
plastic model to more
elaborate glass feeders. Once
you choose and take home
your feeder, find an area that
is around trees or shrubbery
to hang your feeder.
Taking care of a humming-
bird feeder requires dedica-
tion and some work. Keeping
the feeder clean and chang- -
ing the nectar is vital. You can
either purchase humming-
Jbird nectar mix or you can
make your own. Simply use
one part white cane sugar to
four parts ordinary tap water.
You can store unused nectar
in the refrigerator for about
two weeks. During hot


weather, you should change
the mixture in the feeder
about every two days. You
should clean your feeder
thoroughly at least once a
month.
Another way to attract
hummers to your yard is by
planting hummingbird-
friendly plants. Many of our
common flowers are good for
attracting hummers. One
such plant is the bottlebrush
tree. I have three huge
bottlebrush trees in my yard,
and we have seen humming-
bird activity around them on
several occasions.
Some other plants that
attract these delicate crea-
tures are azalea, lantana,
canna lily, impatiens and
petunia. These plants in
conjunction with a feeder are
a good start to a great hobby
Oh, did I mention they also
eat insects? That can be an
added bonus to attracting
them to your garden.

and they decided on pro-
duce," said Ms. Anderson,
who has lived in the area for
more than 20 years.
Some of the items avail-
able, including squash, pep-
pers, cucumbers, eggplant,
oranges and other citrus, are
grown locally in Indian River
County.
"We try to get local pro-
duce from farmers in the
area, but if not, then we'll
look at Florida fruits and veg-
etables," said Jean Johnson,
Ms. Andersorn's daughter,
who also works at the pro-
duce stand.
"We also try to get organic
when we can and none of our.
stuff is gassed (processed for
a,longer shelf life) except for
our bananas, because that's
the only way we can get
them," said Ms. Johnson. .-
"We also try to get produce
that has not yet been refriger-
ated, because once produce
has been refrigerated, it has
to stay that way and picking
up our food straight from the
growers ensures that our
product is fresh," she added.-
Ms. Anderson bought the
open-air produce stand one-
and-a-half years ago, and has
enjoyed watching business
grow.
"When I bought it, there
was just the one table and
canopy and the trailer, ain
now look at how many fruit
and vegetables there are," she
said gesturing at the rows of
rainbow-colored produce.
Customers walk up to,the
stand at all hours of the day
and are greeted with hellos
and smiles, no matter the
weather.
Eleanor Keicher, a Vero
Beach resident, frequented
the produce stand even
before it was called Rhonda.s
Produce.
"I come at least once every
other Week, sometimes more,,
to get my fruit," said Mvs
Keicher, who bought plumsi
apples and beautifull
oranges."
"I really like this stand, and
I like the happiness of it,".she:
said.

the way we want to be treat-
ed," said Ms. Johnson.
Tomatoes, which are car-
ried year-round, make up a
large share of business.
"Tomatoes are the back-
bone of our business. Without
them, we really wouldn't have
a business," said Ms. Ander-
son.
:' One of the benefits of shop-
ping at the produce stand,
besides fair prices, is the abili-
ty to buy in amounts that you
want, said Ms. Anderson.
"In the grocery stores, you
have to buy a whole bag of
grapes, or potatoes or toma-
toes or whatever," she said.
-n "Here, we willlet you take
what you want and we'll split
that bag of grapes for you,"
said Ms. Anderson.
:, For people who have trou-
ble walking long distances,
the produce stand is a great
alternative to grocery store
shopping, because you can
park and walk a short dis-
tance to buy your fruit, she
added.
1, "And we carry all types of


fruits and vegetables," the
owner said.
One produce item you
won't find at the produce
stand is corn, said Ms. Ander-
son. Since corn farmers have
been diverting their crops to


produce ethanol, the price
has gone up and the quality
has gone down, she said.
"I'm not carrying corn right
now because we would rather
not have something that
doesn't look good or even


have the quality we'd normal-
ly expect," said Ms. Anderson.
The upcoming months will
bring lots of Plant City straw-
berries and Ms. Anderson
plans on carrying plenty for
her customers.


"It's also the season to get
honey belles and ortaniques,
a cross between oranges and
tangerines that are absolutely
delicious," she said.
Rhonda' Produce is located


across from the Best Western
on State Road 60 at 2006 87th
Ave., Vero Beach. The produce
stand is open seven days a
week from 5:30 a.m. to 5: 15
p.m. For more information,

Solo travel
- raveling solo does not
have to mean traveling
,,J. alone. There are so
-.,rlany options out there for
'the person that chooses to
travel alone or do not have a
travel partner.
.<, Generally speaking most
,,travel offers are per person,
dlbased on double occupancy,
pand single travelers pay a
mingle supplement to travel
alone. This to single travelers,
f-eels unfair, because they are
.being penalized for not being
partnered up.
That being said, there is a
discountnt if they are traveling as
:triple, then the fare goes
j wn per person, as long as
ree are occupying the same
oom or ship's stateroom.
So who is the single traveler?
The first obvious answer is a
'-single person looking for other
ingle persons with the same
iAterests and maybe even a
relationship .
,-Z Many of those "singles"
mightt also be thought of as
Sung, wild and looking for
,ll-night parties. You know the
type-singles cruise aboard a
cruise to the Caribbean-
-,Wvhat aparty. Yes, they are
singles, but not necessarily the
definition of the solo traveler.
A solo traveler can be
anybody.. Many are people
* o have a particular interest
d do not want to have to
,er to another's interest
"/orneeds.
.'.,' Couples who have the same
interests are fortunate to be
gble to travel together and
Both getwhat they are looking
for. Unfortunately, some
couples who travel together
because they happen to be
married may not have the
same interests; therefore, one
Sor the other may become
"bored (this is another story).
:; Widows and widowers are
another example of solo
,ravelers. They may have
taveled alot with their spouse
dver the years, so they decide
to keep on traveling. Unfortu-
nately, most decide not to
because they do not want to
experience traveling alone.
But those who do find there is
just as muchjoyin it as before
the death of their beloved.
There are also solo travelers
who are happily married, but
have diffrtterg.t. So
theyia Ifg tgeherwnthethe"'
S--wish-and-trEvel'scal to.,
experience something the
other has no interest in.
I have married clients-he
enjoys golf and she loves the
spa and this works well for
them for the most part, since
manyspas have golf courses
attached. Butboth go on
different trips as well, he goes
to Ireland to golf, and she goes
to the islandswith her friends
Sto a spa resort. I also have seen
the wife go to Italy on a
-cooking tour and he stayed
home. They seem to be very
comfortable.
Solo travelers who just
fascinate me decide where
they want to go and then go.

'BEAUTY TIPS FROM









LET'S SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE
Splits ends-occur when the protective
cuticle is destroyed at the end of the
hair. The hair then splits into two or
more strands. Once the damage has
occurred, the best way to deal with it
is by using a pair of scissors. A hair
stylist can employ a number of differ-
ent methods to combat split ends.
One of the simplest ways is to have
the hair trimmed at regular intervals.
If the hair is long, this is particularly
important. Split ends sometimes
occur because the protective hair oils
do not reach the end of the hair shaft,
causing it to split. Having a regular
trim will 'cut out the split ends and
keep the hair manageable. Struggling
With split ends? Then schedule a trim

Theater, with gangster references


'Breaking Legs'
comes to
Riverside
By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH It's the
quintessential show busi-
ness good-luck phrase,
and it's also a stereotypi-
cal "accident" which can
occur when someone
crosses an underworld
mobster.
But to local theater
audiences, "Breaking
Legs," Riverside Theatre's
first production of 2009,
will mean a comedy that
encompasses theater and
gangster references, as
well as a hefty dose of
sublime Italian cuisine.
Directed and cast by
Allen Cornell, Riverside
Theatre producing artis-
tic director, "Breaking
Legs" stars soap opera
actor Laurence Lau as
Terence O'Keefe, an Eng-
lish professor and play-
wright who needs fund-
ing for the production of
his way-off Broadway
play. "
He approaches a for-
mer student who had a
crush on him for a possi-
ble $200,000 investment.
But while Angie Graziano
(played .by Catia Ojeda)
may be a potential
investor angel, her fami-
ly's wealth is the result of
decidedly non-cherubic
endeavors.

'Breaking Legs' cast members Laurence Lau and Catia Ojeda. The show opens Jan. 9
at Riverside Theatre.


Angie's father Lou
(played by Bob Amaral)
and associates Mike
(Richard Zavaglia) and
Tino (John Lagioia) agree
to finance the play.
O'Keefe's troubles begin
when the ovprly-zealous
financiers suggest open-'
ing the play on Broadway.
Written by Tom Dulak,
a University of Connecti-
cut English professor,
."Breaking Legs" brings
together an ensemble
cast from New York City
and Florida, who not only
love the play, but also
Riverside Theatre. Their
combined theatrical, tel-
evision and movie credits
span more than 40


decades.
"Breaking Legs"
opened in 1992 and ran
on Broadway, starring
Vincent Gardenia and
Karen Valentine. The
show has been per-
formed nationally and
internationally.
Mr. Zavaglia was previ-
ously cast in' "Breaking
Legs" when it played in
California.
"I did it 12 years ago at
the Pasadena Playhouse
and I was directed in it by
Tom Dulak. The show is a
real audience pleaser and
I get to find new things
about it in working with a.
whole new.cast. It's also a
love story," Mr. Zavaglia


said.
Mr. Lagioia had seen
the show off -Broadway
and subsequently got a
behind-the-scenes tour.
"I love the play and I
love being Tino in the
show. Nobody knows who
and what .he does. It's a
very well-written script
and it's funny."'
He also noted that
Riverside Theatre's excel-
lent reputation, is well-
known among New York
actors.
"This theater is very
respected in New York
and actors want to work
here. Everyone here is

Aries March 21-April 19
Count your blessings. This is
a New Year. The past one has
given both challenges and
blessings. This year will be
better with the rewards out-
weighing the" challenges.
Make an accounting on a
regular basis about how
much good is coming your
way and you will increase
the odds of success and put
them in your favor.

Taurus April 20-May 20
Making wise decisions based
on your instincts will keep
you focused on the main
issues that need to be
addressed. You are at your
best .when you follow your
heart not the head. Stay firm
,in your basic beliefs. Others
around you may not always
agree, but they will respect
you for your firm resolve. Just
be flexible when needed.

Gemini -May 21-June 21
You are a creative free spirit.
Use your powerful gift of
communicating.. when life
gets sticky or begins to slow
down. Be sure'to make qual-
ity time for yourself each
week and keep your mental
batteries charged. The begin-
ning of the year is no time to
start feeling burned out.
Strong concentration on your
main objectives will bring
positive results.

Cancer June 22-July 22
This will be a good year for
you. You are more relaxed,
your mind is clear, your heart
is open and your visions are
strong. This balanced life will
help you expand your goals
and help them grow earlier
than usual. It's good to see
you taking better care of
yourself. You are well known
for taking care of everyone
else first. This is a nice
change. Good job.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22
You have the power of posi-
tive influence like few others.
Why? Because of your fiery
nature. You get a good idea
and you put it into action.
Two thousand nine will be a

very accommodating and
considerate," he said.
A -native. Texan, Ms.
Ojeda said she had to work
hard to develop Angie's
distinctive New York
accent and mannerisms.
Movie actress Marisa
Tomei's Oscar-winning
depiction as Mona Lisa
Vito in "My Cousin Vinnie"
served as a model.
"She was my inspiration
for this audition because
this role is so not me. I
shamelessly copied her
accent," Ms. Ojeda said
with, laugh.
John Shuman, who plays
Frankie Salvucci, noted
that he saw the play years
ago and eagerly audi-
tioned for Mr. Cornell for a
role.
Mr. Lau has had a long


and successful career as an
actor on "As the World
Turns," "One Life To Live,"
"Another World" and "All
My Children," as well as
guest starring roles on
primetime TV shows
including "Law and Order,
"Frasier" and "JAG."
Although his acting
roots are primarily in tele-'
vision, he especially enjoys
acting in theatrical pro-
ductions and performed in
"Breaking Legs" when it
made its European debut
in Vienna in 2005.
"I had a ball doing this at
the Vienna English The-
ater. Because the Austrians.
speak German but under-
stand English, they take
maybe a half second delay
to laugh while they are
silently translating," he
said.
"I'm tickled pink to be
here. This is more fun than
television and after a


decade on soaps working
four to five days a week, I
was burned out," Mr. Lau
said.
Going back to theater
enabled him to study act-
ing again and better learn
his craft, he said.
"Breaking Legs" has ele-
ments of love, realization
of dreams and even con-
frontations between mob
bosses.
"But, of course, it has a
happy ending," said Mr.
Amaral.
"It's like the 'Sopranos'
without all the viciousness
and brutality," Mr. Lagioia
said.
"Breaking Legs" runs Jan.
9 through Feb. 1 on the
Stark main stage at River-
side Theatre. Tickets are
$20-$50. For more infor-
mation, call the box office

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov.21
Your self-confidence is grow-
ing. You worry less. You live a
day at a time. You are happi-
er. Why? Because you contin-
ue to release the past and
plan for the future. You are
creating your own reality. You
are a player in the game of
life, not a spectator. The
greatest is your open heart to
receive and give love. In the
game of life you are a winner.
Sagittarius Nov..22-Dec. 21
Where do you get all the
energy? You amaze your
friends. You have a never-
ending supply of determina-
tion. You know what you
want. You usually get what
you desire. The key for stami-
na is to pace yourself. Make
lists of your top priorities
every day, and take care of
the important ones first. This
is the formula of champions.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You have a rare universal
blessing. The sun, Mars,
Jupiter and Pluto are all in
Capricorn right now. This
gives you a highly-focused
mirror into your own inner
universe. The greatest thing
you could do would be to
meditate every day and listen
closely to this rare guidance.
Then, take action to create a
great reality in the days and
months ahead.


Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Few can keep up with you at
the beginning of the year.
Your sign is coming up next.
The anticipation and joy of
achievement is the fuel that
fires your soul. The timing is
perfect to launch your new
projects. With Venus and
Neptune in Aquarius-the next
two months will be very pro-
ductive. Your hard work has
paid off. Nothing can stop
you now.
Pisces Feb. 19-March 20
With Venus and Uranus in
Pisces it is time to show grati-
tude every day. Say this out
loud every day. "I am continu-
ally fed by the unlimited
good in the universe. I am
thankful for my many friends
who bring me great joy and
love. I see good in everyone I
meet. I am thankful when
,they see it in me. My heart is
filled to overflowing. Thank
you, universe.'

Cooking terms and using up leftover turkey


Hello smart shoppers.
This week we're
gonna make some
delicious meals with
leftover turkey.
First, let's get even
smarter by learning what
cooking terms mean with
my cook-a-cabulary: a
vocabulary about cooking.
Alphabetically speaking,
here we go!
BASTE: to moisten food
while cooking with pan
drippings to prevent
dryness.
BLANCH: to precook in
steam or boiling water to
remove skin or to prepare
food for canning or freezing.
BLEND: to thoroughly
mix ingredients with an
electric mixer or a whisk
until smooth.
BRAISE: to cook slowly in
a little liquid with the pan
tightly covered.
BREAD: to coat with
breadcrumbs before

cooking.
BROIL: to cook by direct
heat under the broiler of a
stove.
BUTTERFLY: to split
foods horizontally, such as
chicken breasts or meat,
without separating the
sections, then laying flat.
CARAMELIZE: to melt
sugar slowly over low heat
until it becomes brown in
color. To caramelize onions,
the same process is fol-
lowed, using a little shorten-
ing or water, until they
become lightly golden and
translucent.
COAT: to cover foods with
crumbs, flour or batter
before cooking.
DREDGE: pressing food
firmly into seasoned flour to
coat heavily.
FOLD: to add ingredients
gently, such as folding in
beaten egg whites by
placing a spatula down into
the mixture at the side of

bottom then coming up and
over, turning the bowl often
until well incorporated.
GLAZE: to brush a
mixture over top of food to
give it a shine or hard finish.
KNEAD: to work dough
with the heel of your hand
in a pressing and folding
motion.
PUREE: to convert food
into a liquid or paste using a
blender, food processor or
food mill.
REDUCE: to boil a
mixture to evaporate liquid
so it becomes thicker.
SCORE: to cut narrow,
criss-cross slits on each side
of meat or poultry without
cutting through.

Cooked broccoli spears
Lightly brown onion and

serving of noodles with a
couple of broccoli spears,

Beware of egg noodles. If
