Local lieutenant
honored association

Lt. Toby Turner, who has
served with Indian River
County Fire Rescue for 30
years, was named emer-
gency service Provider of
the Year by the Treasure
Coast Fire Chief's Associa-
tion.
The lieutenant is current-
ly serving on the team
responsible for safety dur-
ing high-angle rescues and
is responsible for training
others in safety measures.
Community service is a
big part of Lt. Turner's life..
He has been involved with
Toys for Tots, Boys Scout
Troop 567, Vero Beach High
School soccer boosters and
the firefighter's Indian River
County Fair.
John King, Indian River
County's fire chief, said in a
press release that Lt. Turner
is "a role model for newly-
hired employees and is.
admired and respected by
. his supervisors."

New trees planted

Pointe West has a few
more shady areas around its
lakes this week, after volun-
teers planted 1.75 bald
cypress trees on Jan. 24.
The trees were planted in
conjunction with the Indian
River Soil and Water Con-
servation District.
According to a press
release, planting trees along
the shoreline of storm water
ponds in residential areas
helps increase the ability of
the ponds to clean the
water, which ultimately
makes its way to the Indian
River Lagoon.
Four other sub-divisions
will participate in the proj-
ect, which is expected to
span three years and
involve 1,500 bald cypress
trees.

A sticky, sweet job


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Eleven-year-old Cadence Velie of Vero Beach smokes the hives and pops out a rack full
of honey on her family's farm in west Vero Beach last Friday.

11 -year-old turns hobby into business


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com

VERO BEACH -
Cadence Velie, 11,
approached the wooden
boxes crawling with tiny
black insects without fear.
The air fairly hummed
Sv-iti acti it\ a, the indus-
trious honeybees flew back
and forth, while Cadence
pointed out their path to
and from plant, not flinch-
ing as they darted around
her arms.
"They usually won't sting
jyou unless you swat at
them," said Cadence.,
'And she should know,
because his a beekeeper
with seven hives.
"It's a hobby, but it's fun
to do and fun to watch
them," said Cadence.
The hives are kept on the
Velies' 20-acre property in
Vero Beach, where the bees
have access, to various
types * of wildflowers,
orange blossoms and other
plants to make into honey.
Her grandfather, a bee-
keeper himself, first intro-


duced Cadence to bee-
keeping and presented her
with her first hive nearly
four years ago.
"We read all about it,
checked out every book in
the library," said Audrey
Velie, Cadence's mother.
Cadence, who is home
schooled,- spends two to,-
three hours per week with
her bees.
"You can't just leave
them there," she said.
"You have to go inside
the hive to heck for hive
beetles and wax moths,
which are insects that get
in there and destroy the
hives," said Cadence.
With the help of her fam-
ily; Cadence began to har-
vest and sell the honey
produced by her bees, to
help cover the cost of
maintaining the hives.
"I'think that having the
bees keeps her busy and
out in the world, instead of
doing activities like playing
on the computer all the
time or shopping 'till she
drops," said Mrs. Velie.
"With this, she can


Charter school

VERO BEACH, - Six
months after the start of the
2008-09 school year stu-
dents, faculty and staff of
Imagine Schools bat South
Vero have finally moved into
their permanent home at
6000 Fourth St. in . Vero
Beach.
The opening went very
smoothly, school Principal
Joe Mills said.
"The parents, the teachers,
even the children were very
excited and their faces made
it a very special day," he said.
About 435 students are
currently enrolled in'the K-5
school, which has a mission
to restore vision and purpose
to education and allow par-
ents and guardians full par-
ticipation in their children's
education.


The faculty and staff had
hoped -to move into the
building a couple of weeks
ago, but fire loop code regu-
lations and other minor
paperwork issues delayed
their certificate of occupancy
approval, - said Principal
Mills.
One of the major changes
in moving from the tempo-
rary site at Central Assembly
of God on 20th Street is a
cafeteria.
"The kids won't be eating.
lunch at their desks, on their
desks anymore," Principal
Mills said with a smile.
Imagine Schools are free,
privately run public charter
schools.
Students at the South Vero
school are required to take
the FCAT and the school gets
an overall school grade, like
all other public schools,
school officials said.


appreciate God's creation,
and see what a unique sys-
tem of living the bees have,
living inside of a little box,"
said Mrs. Velie.
Even though there are
seven hives, each bee has
its own home and is not
welcome in a different
hjyge,� said Cadence. - -
"They know their own
spot and if they try to enter
a different one, the other
bees kick them out," she
said.
In a bee's world, the
queen is the center of the
universe. She is the one
that lays eggs and increas-
es the population of the
hive.
"It's really neat seeing
the queen lay her eggs."
said Cadence.
"She's a little bit bigger
than the others and it's
kind of hard to keep track,
of her, but it's neat to see
when all the bees are doing
their jobs," she said.
Cadence and her mother
keep careful records of

In addition, Imagine
Schools requires students to
take extra tests for a better
determination of academic
achievement, Principal Mills
said.
The more rigorous student
evaluations and higher stan-
dards of evaluating a, stu-
dent's progress is one ele-
ment that sets Imagine
Schools apart from other
schools, said the principal.
Enrollment is open for the
2009-10 year, but spaces are
limited.
Currently, there are 73
Imagine Schools in the
nation.
The move will allow a spe-
cial school program,
MicroSociety, to really take
off, said Principal Mills.

Budget cuts


leave high school


sports programs


seeking answers

By John MacDonald "YOU have to adjust.


vMacaonalad@hometownnewsoi.com
More often than not, the
accomplishments of high
school athletes are the last
to be recognized, relegated
to the back pages of a news-
paper or end of a television
broadcast.
Conversely, it is those
same athletes who are first
to suffer when budget cuts
are announced. Despite the
profound benefits that
sports provide, many
schools are being forced to
slash the number of games
teams play or eliminate
them completely, among
other cost-cutting meas-
ures.
"We do know of a few.
counties that have can-
celled junior varsity and
freshman sports,"said
Cristina Alvarez, Florida
High School Athletic Asso-
ciation spokeswoman. "We
are aware of it and are try-
ing to do things to alleviate
the problem."
Vero Beach head football
coach Gary Coggin has also
had to be a little more
resourceful when coming
up with opponents for his
two-time district champion
Fighting Indians.
"Some counties are going
to a nine-game schedule,"
SCoggin said. "Right now, we
haven't had to do that, but
we're having trouble finding
a full 10 games.
"You have to adjust. You
have to be more flexible. We
have a lot of dedicated peo-
ple here who are trying to
keep things as close to nor-
mal as possible."
At Sebastian River, the
number of athletic contests
will be reduced by 15 per-
cent for the next school
year, a frustrating set of cir-
cumstances for Mark
Adams, the. Sharks' boys
basketball coach, who has
built the program into one
of the most successful in
the state by playing the best
competition available.
"This year, we could have
played 25 regular-season
games and we played 25,"
Adams said. "Next year, we


You have to be more
flexible. We have a
lot of dedicated peo-
. pie here who are try-
ing to keep things as
close to normal as
possible."


Gary Coggin
Vero Beach head
football coach

can only schedule 20
games. That doesn't leave
much flexibility with the
schedule.
"We play 10 district
games and five games in the
Treasure Lake Conference.
Plus, you play three or four
games in a Christmas tour-
nament and that only
leaves you a couple of
games to be creative with.
"It's tough. We knew there
would be cutbacks. It's just
a sign of the times."-
One school that has been
hit the hardest is Port St.
Lucie High. Athletic direc-
tor Danny Ninestine has
seen the basic budget allo-
cation for athletics dwindle
,during his tenure and he
has had to adjust accord-
ingly.
"We cut freshman base-
ball, basketball, football
and soccer four or five years
ago," Ninestine said. "We've
also gotten rid of other jun-
ior varsity sports.
"Soon we won't be able to
compete."
Since all the high schools
on the Treasure Coast play
each other in one sport or
another, for the games that
still remain on the sched-
ule, transporting the stu-
dent-athletes is also an
issue.
While the recent reduc-
tion in gas prices has eased
concerns a little, costs can
quickly addup. As a result,
each county has seen its
schools take measures

Water management district


expands public access


For Hometown News
. News@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST - In a contin-
uing effort to broaden access to pub-
lic records and enhance customer
service, the South Florida Water
Management District has added
more than 30 years of regulatory per-
mitting information to an existing
online database.
The process entailed converting
more than 280,000 microfiche
(sheets of microfilm) containing 9.1
million documents dating back to
the 1970s to electronic.form.
The SFWMD is taking strides to


further enhance customer service,
promote public access to govern-
ment and more efficiently respond
to customer inquiries. The result of
this project is direct, easy and quick
public access to permit files, repre-
senting a more customer-friendly
and cost-effective way to do busi-
ness.
"This system brings government to
the residents of Florida and utilizes
the latest technology to improve
public access," said SFWMD govern-
ing board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"It's also a faster way of transacting
and processing permits and a more
efficient method of doing business

Previously, district staff had to
access and manually search micro-
fiche stored in file cabinets to
respond to requests for information.
The information then,had to 'be
printed, faxed e-mailed or sent via
regular mail.
In 2006 alone, more than 10,400
requests for assistance were
processed.
The district launched its ePe'rmit-
ting system in September 2005. It
allows customers to conduct a vari-
ety of business, including submitting
environmental resource and con-
sumptive use permit applications,
information about permit
7 | B compliance, accessing fee
schedules and automati-
cally calculating permit-

The tool also allows
customers to apply for,

Efforts to expand the
system are part of the dis-
trict's open government
initiatives to improve
Floridians' ability to

accordingly.
In St. Lucie County, travel-
ing outside a 75-mile radius,
by schools - excluding dis-
trict games - must be paid
for through fundraising or
student fees.
Courtesy activity buses in
St. Lucie County were elimi-
nated, just as they were at
Sebastian River High for, its
winter and spring sports.
"It might be difficult for
parents to pick up their kids,"
St. Lucie County athletic
director Jay Stewart said after


the initial cuts were
announced. "Then they don't
participate as much."
In Martin County, schools
were also asked to reduce
travel expenses. Due to its
remote location, South Fork
was able to keep its activity
buses because of the good
nature of,the other area ath-
letic directors.
"Martin County and
Jensen Beach both offered to
give up theirs so that we
could keep ours," South Fork
athletic director Cathy Smith
said., "It was nice of Greg
(Hendricks) and R.J. (Costel-
lo) to do that.
"We transport to all district
games and all conference
games. It can get pretty
expensive.'
Ah.arez said that last year
the FHSAA Board of Direc-
tors brought up the possibili-
ty of reducing the maximum

Townhomes approved amid opposition
The Sebastian City Council voted in their Jan. 28 meeting
to approve a townhome development with 116-units, to the
disapproval of many members of the community.
Residents were concerned about the traffic pattern
impact and density of the development.
During a quasi-judicial hearing, council members noted
that the developer had more than met the requirements of
the required code standards and were obligated to approve
the request.


The development, The Pointe at Chessers Gap Town-
homes, will be located at County Road 512 and Fleming
Street.
The discussion took up a large portion of the meeting and
other agenda items had to be tabled.
"It wasn't time wasted by any means," said Council-
woman Andrea Coy.
"We took a lot of time to listen and answer the questions,"
she said.
There is a big difference between wearing legislative hats
and judicial hats, said Ms. Coy.
"When we're legislative, we can change rules and make
new ones, but as quasi-judicial, we have to judge, as the
applicant has met the rules already in place. We can't just
change the rules in the middle of it," she said.

Organizers of the event,
to be held June 21-27,

They and their families

what they observe in their
bees and the results of
experiments they try from
time to time.
One recent, successful
experiment was to divide a
large established hive into
two hives by removing
some of the worker bees
and giving them a- new
queen in a separate hive.
Retrieving, or robbing the
honey, usually happens in
the spring and summer,
said Cadence, when the
bees have had time to gath-
er the most pollen and nec-
tar from the blooming
plants in the area.
The hive boxes contain-
ing the honey are stacked
vertically into towers on top
of the brood section, which
is where the queen lays
eggs. That is kept separate
from the frames that con-
tain the rich and sticky
honey.
Each box weighs approxi-
mately 60 pounds and con-
tains nine frames filled with
honeycombs.
Each frame yields approx-
imately 40 ounces of honey,
which is 'extracted 'by
machine, said Cadence."
Her favorite part of the
beekeeping process?
"Eating the honey," she
said with a grin.

PRECIOUS METALS
SWINDLES
A major gold scheme occurred in
the late 1970's during an economic
recession. Two brothers ran a pre-
cious -metals brokerage business
down South. They published nice
brochures and pamphlets advertis-
ing their metals investments, and
hired telemarketers to advance their
business. This idea made so much
sense that 25,000 investors pur-
chased metals through the compa-
ny. The gold merchants made it
easy to buy the metals and protect,
the investment. For instance, if you
wanted to buy $10,000 worth of gold
bullion you called the company and
placed your order. The broker prom-
ised to buy the metals for you and
also had a great idea to help you out
with the safekeeping of your
gold...they would keep it in their
company vault and you wouldn't
have to worry about the safety of
your gold. They sent you a certifi-
cate of ownership for you to have
until you were ready to sell you gold
back to the open market. A few
years passed and the stock market
started rising and it was time to sell
gold and reinvest in the stock mar-
ket. The telephones started rnginging
and then the investigation started. It
was concluded that the company.

Cadence divides the types
of honey produced by her
bees into three basic cate-
gories, orange blossom,
wildflowers and, on occa-
sion, peppertree.
Orange blossom is
Cadence's favorite because
of its sweeter taste, but Mrs.
Velie prefers the wildflower
honey.
"I have allergies and what
the bees do is collect from
the flowers that a lot of peo-
ple are allergic to and make
honey," said Mrs. Velie.
"When I eat the wild-
flower honey, I'm basically
doing the same thing as
going to the doctor for an
allergy shot, because that's
what the doctors give you;
they give you what you are
allergic to, to help build
your immune system," she
said.
"It's great to eat honey
rather than getting a shot,
and I haven't had to take
any allergy medicine in two
and a half years," Mrs. Velie
said.
The best part of Cadence's
honey business is the time
the family gets to spend
together, said Mrs. Velie.
"We all get in there and do
it together and I would
never give that away for the
world," she said.
Honey by Cadence's bees
is available for purchase
year-round at Rhonda's Pro-
duce, located at 2006 87th
Ave., Vero Beach.



Cuts
From page A2
percent reduction in expens-
es.
In St. Lucie County, sports
were cut across the board,
with football and baseball
taking two of the hardest
hits. One game off the tradi-
tional 10-game schedule was
eliminated from the upcom-
ing fall football season while,
two games were sliced off the
baseball season's schedule,
reducing the number of
games from 25 to 23.
That's two fewer games to
nurture a future major-
league star such as Rick
� Ankiel, who starred for the
Jaguars before making an
impact with the St. Louis
Cardinals.
"He (Ankiel) was not the
athlete he was after his soph-
omore season that he was as
a freshman," Ninestine said.
"He really matured after his
sophomore year.. Fewer
games mean idle times and
idle hands. Kids are kids.
They are going to make mis-
takes.
"What are kids going to do
besides get in trouble?"
For Ninestine, who starred
in three sports in high school
that meant being on the'
field.
"I tell people I Was in three
gangs in school; the baseball,
basketball and football
teams," Ninestine said. "You
learn so much being a part of
a team: how to be a team
member, how to be on time,
organizational skills.
"There is a direct correla-
tion between high school
dropouts and crime. High
school coaches care about
your discipline. They care
about your grades. If you
don't have athletics, half of
those kids that were on a
team say, 'I'm not going to
school today, I don't have
practice.
"I don't know where we're
headed. This is really going
to hurt."

Three questions for President Obama

* Why, despite all of the governmental propaganda, is there
no assistance available locally to help single mothers with
scholarships, grants and opportunities for online continuing
education and housing costs?
Except Pell grants, there is lack of health and dental options
for single mothers, lack of utility expenses assistance, lack of
public transportation and very poor quality of "self-sufficien-
cy" standards.
* Why is there a lack of accountability with the department
of revenue in child support enforcement? Companies are
allowed to harbor "dead-beat dads" and there are poor stan-
dards of legal remedies to the custodial parent. (For instance,
holding the local department of revenue accountable for lack
of enforcement of support orders, civil penalties for compa-
nies that fail to abide by income deduction orders and higher
criminal penalties for dads who do not pay during times of
"emergency," such as critical illness, natural disaster or for
higher education and health insurance).
* What in our society is perpetuating this notion that chil-
dren are dispensable and that fathers can just walk away?
Do they misguidedlyy) believe the government will take care
of the children for them? At least in other countries, fathers
know that their children will starve, hence; if they abandoned
them, they will forever be tormented by the thought they con-
tributed to that child's death.
In this country, most children are condemned to a life of
poverty, being forced to live in crime and drug-infested neigh-
borhoods, are forced to a life of ridicule and scrutiny due to
their material possessions (or lack thereof), have no options
for higher education, are forced in the workplace far too young
and have a very real risk of losing their mother (primary care
giver) at a very early age due to stress and lack of health and
dental care.

Tobacco vs. peanut butter

What has become of common sense with us as human
beings?
that we aze @u garsof eanut'butter offthe
v cause seven peoplh ive .edlu salmio~nlla
poisoning. I also read that they have pulled certain dog bis-
cuits off the shelves so that pets won't become ill, because
there is peanut butter in the biscuits.
Tobacco kills hundreds of people a month in this country,
yet you can walk.into any store and see brand after brand of
tobacco products. Are we crazy? We need to get our priorities
in order.

College isn't all it's cracked up to be

There is hardly a parent who doesn't think their child doesn't
have potential. From the day they're born, many are setting up
a college trust, for what may be the next genius, to be hugely
successful. It rarely turns out that way, but there is little harm
in hoping.
When I graduated from high school in the '50s, it was only
the top 10 percent who had a chance for college. Now it seems
we hope half graduate from high school. College has become
grade 13.
Few, as in my day, have a burning desire in a particular field
of study. Many shuffle around until they come upon a skill that
gets them a degree in something. It makes their parents proud,
but ends up with them on the doorstep with a degree that isn't
marketable.
I have a better solution in that I have gone through all phas-
es of education, private, public, trade and military.
Allwho go to college are not necessarily our best. Bill Gates
and Steve Jobs never completed college. It is not that college
isn't a great experience, but possibly only a building block.
Graduating from a "great school" may only give you a team'to
root for on a Saturday afternoon.
I have gone to and graduated from private and state-run col-
leges. Private is more efficient, and more direct in your inter-
ests.
Forget the big name schools where the professor is someone
you might see in an auditorium. If you have a gift for plumb-
ing, electrical, carpentry, etc., go for it.
There are many Ph.Ds looking for someone to fix their toilet
a % jway dearly for your skill.

Putting out the smoke for good


Last week I wrote about
making the decision
to stop smoking. This
week I'll talk about getting
medication and using it
correctly and preparing for
relapses and difficult
situations.
Medications that can
help:
There are several med-
ication approved by the
Food and Drug Administra-
tion to help smokers quit.
Most of them help you
mange withdrawal symp-
toms and urges with small
amounts of nicotine.
One of them, bupropion,
is sometimes used to fight
depression and may help
reduce nicotine cravings.
According to the Nation-
al Institutes of Health,
using an aid to help you
quit could as much as
double your chances of
being successful. It's also
important to remember
that even if these products
areavailable over-the-
counter, without a pre-
scription, they are powerful
and could have side effects.
You should talk to your
doctor, especially if you are
under 18, pregnant or
breastfeeding or have a
medical condition. Under a
doctor's supervision, you


may be able to use these
products safely, without
side effects.
Among the nicotine
replacement products
available over-the-counter
are: gum sold as Nicorette
and lozenges sold as
Commit.
Products available over-
the counter and by pre-
scription include patches
sold under a variety of
names including Nico-
derm, Habitrol, Prostep
and Nicotrol.
Products available only .
with a prescription include
inhalers sold as Nicotrol;
nasal sprays also sold as
Nicotrol and pills, known
generically as buproprion
and under the brand
names Zyban or Well-
butrin.
Some people have
success with newer
medication, such as
Chantix, but these medi-
cines may have serious side
effects and you should talk
to your doctor carefully


* about the risks and bene-
fits. They are not recom-
mended for everyone.
For more information on
how to use smoking
cessation medications, visit
www.myclearhorizons.com.
It's a big step to stop
smoking, but that's only the
beginning. The harder
battle is staying smoke-free
for the long haul.
Here are some strategies
and plans, again taken -
from QuitAssist, to help
you through some rough
patches.
According to the Centers
for Diseases Control and
Prevention, your risk of
relapse is greatest during
' the first three miniths 'ifter
quitting. Have a plan in
place to cope with being
around other smokers or in
other difficult situations.
You know what your
triggers are; plan for how
you'll handle them ahead
of time.
If you smoke to handle
stress, you need a replace-
ment coping skill. Exercise
is a great stress reliever and
mood elevator. You might
try yoga or tai chi or go for
a walk or run.
Don't beat yourself up if
you slip. Don't give up! Try
to figure out what hap-


opened to make that urge
uncontrollable. Are there
things you can do to cope
better next time? Ask for
help from friends and
experts.
Coffee and alcohol are
often smoke triggers; limit
their use.
Eat nutritious food and
try to exercise most days.
This will also help maintain
your weight.
Remind yourself of the
benefits of not smoking.
Think of good health.
Think of how unpleasant
the house used to
smell.Thihk of the money
you're saving!

telephone-based help in
smoking,cessation.,Jn...
Florida, the state telephone
quitline is (877) 822-6669.
Help is available in English
arid Spanish and other
language translations are
available.
You can do it. Lots of
people can help.

The truth about desktop shortcuts


ome of the questions
that I am asked
frequently have to do
with the icons on the
typical Windows desktop.
"Aren't they slowing*
things down? I never use
most of them. Can't we get
rid of them?"
I usually answer by
explaining that most of the
icons on the average
desktop are not slowing
the computer down at all,
but are actually more like
speed dial buttons on a
phone.
Most desktop icons are
just shortcuts to programs
buried deeper in the
system, and are on the
desktop so you don't have
to navigate through all
sorts of menus to launch a
program.
If you look closely at the
icons on your desktop, you
may notice that some have
a little arrow in a little
white box at the lower left
corner of the icon. The
arrow itself is kind of curvy
and will point to the top
right corner of the icon.
You may also notice that
other icons (such as the my
computer icon, my docu-
ments icon, recycle bin,
etc.) do not have the little
arrow. There is a big
difference between the two
types of icons. The icons
with the little arrows are


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY
*


actually just shortcuts and
not the actual program (or
file). And shortcuts are
reilly, really tiny and don't
slow the computer down at
all.
"But what about the
icons that don't have the
little arrow? Are they safe
to get rid of?"
That question is a little
harder to answer. You see,
any icon on your computer
that does not have the little
shortcut indicator is either
a user file or a system file
and messing with it can
cause problems. Icons on
your desktop that are not
shortcuts are either files
that have been saved on
the desktop or system files
that have been set there by
the operating system and
care should be taken when
manipulating them.
Another point I want to
make is that people have
different ideas as to what
the phrase "get rid of"
means. When someone
asks me to get rid of all of
the unused icons on their
desktop what they are
invariably asking me to do
is to delete them.


Nowlif you have been
reading my column for any
length of time then you
know how I feel about
deleting things from your
computer. It's not some-
thing I do casually. In fact, I
have a saying, "If I were
king I'd have the delete
button stricken from the
keyboard."
My idea of cleaning a
Windows desktop by ,
getting rid of a bunch of
stuff is not to delete
everything, but leans more
in line with the phrase "out
of sight, out of mind."
People will watch with a
puzzled look on their face
as I create yet another icon
on their desktop (a new
folder), name it something
such as desktop clutter and
then drag all the unused
icons into the new folder.
Then, once the desktop
is down to just the icons
that actually get used, I
drag the desktop clutter
folder and drop it into the
my documents folder.
Then I usually spend the
next 10 minutes of so
explaining why I went
through all that trouble
rather than just deleting
everything. My explana-
tion really boils down to
'habit.
One of the worst habits
people get into with their
machines is deleting stuff
every time they tidy up.


Sure, it's great to have a
tidy desktop, but if you are
in the habit of casually
deleting stuff then eventu-
ally, you are going to delete
something you actually
need.
Even worse is the habit
some people have of
emptying the recycle bin
every time they delete
something. That's just a
disaster waiting to happen.
My philosophy is "out of
sight, out of mind." Tidying
up my system by sweeping
a bunch of unused short-
cuts (and actual files for
.that matter) into a folder
and then moving the folder
out of sight ensures that if I
accidentally do "get rid of
something" that I need, I
can recover it easily
enough by digging into the
folder where I moved it.
Does this mean I am
completely against delet-
ing everything? No, of
course not. Some things
are indeed trash and I have
no problem deleting them,
I just have a real problem
with the habit of deleting
things with barely a second
thought. I've seen too
many people delete their
way into too many prob-
lems.

Officers complete crisis training


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST -
New Horizons of the Trea-
sure Coast announced that
27 law enforcement officers
successfully completed an
intensive course in crisis
intervention training.
The officers were honored
during the January gradua-
tion ceremony at new Law
Enforcement Academy at
Indian River State College.
This was the seventh class
to complete the 40-hour
training program that teach-
es officers how to respond to
individuals in a mental
health crisis. ./
Captain Don Kryak of the
Port St. Lucie Police Depart-
ment congratulated the offi-
cers on completing the
intensive course and
emphasized that the train-
ing will help the officers in


all aspects of their job.
Instead of using force,
officers learn to recognize
signs of a mental health cri-
sis and talk people through
difficult situations.
Guest speakers at the
graduation ceremony were
George Woodley from
Department of Children and
Families and Judge Cynthia
Cox.
Law enforcement agen-
cies from six jurisdictions on
the Treasure Coast partici-
pated in' the recent training
and graduation.
Graduates from Indian
River County Sheriff's Office
included: deputies Andy
Baituccelli, Randy Laven-
der, Ciro Perrone and Larry
Nusser; Detective Joe Par-
rish and dispatchers Amber
Grier and Carrie Gielow.
Vero Beach Police Depart-.
ment graduates included
Detective Richard Chimenti


and officers Bradley Kmetz,
Erica Agius and Robert
Skoglund.
Fort Pierce Police Depart-
ment participants included
officers Evens Saintillien
and Joe Cassaniti.
St. Lucie County Sheriff's
Office participants were
deputies David Felix, W. T.
Hamilton, Charles Badger,
Timothy Goyette, Jason
Selph, Judith Kelly, Suprett
Cheema and Dennis Devan-
cy.
Martin County Sheriff's
Office graduates were
deputies Shawn Green and
David Syler.
Community court liaison
Madge McLean, security
officers Nathanael Santiago
and Georgette Brinson, and
mental health tech Robert
Chinapen of the Treasure
Coast forensic treatment
center, also completed the
training.


Rants
From page A6
blinded to the truth about
Republicans and haven't
noticed how far down the
tubes this nation has been
dragged over the last eight
years.
Trying to propagandize the
public regarding Social Secu-
rity, a writer listed a ton of fig-
ures on it, but failed to state
the fact that George Bush
spent all our Social Security
money on his invasion of
Iraq.
Bush is quoted, "All I have
is an IOU on a piece of paper
in a drawer for Social Securi-
ty."
Rather than tax their rich
buddies to pay for their war
on Baghdad, Bush-Cheney
Republicans shifted the -tax
burden onto our children
and future generations.
Those wrong wing chicken
hawks should step up to the
plate and do the right thing
and pay back their lOUs to
Social Security. We could see
then, how far their "patriot-
ism" reaches into their back
pockets.
Socialist Republicans also
gave the largest give away of
tax dollars in .history to
bankers, Wall Streeters and
corporate CEOs, but once
again, Bush shifted the cost
to future taxpayers, our chil-
dren. Ranters should open
their eyes to the "oppression
here at home," on the sick,
the old and school children
facing tax cuts and under
funding by Republicans, just
to save wealthy peoples'
pocket- books and privileged
perks, such as sail boats,
gambling and "sand" put on
the beaches in front of their
beach property. We have too
many un-taxable, untouch-
ables in Florida.

An opinion on the
state of the country
I've been reading the com-
mentary concerning rants
and decided to contribute.
My own personal feeling is
that the condition of this
country is due to a disease
called avarice, 'as evidenced

Prescription cards save residents $85K


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY-
Getting sick can -be painful,
but looking at 'the bill for a
prescribed medication does-
n't have to make you feel
worse.
FamilyWize discount pre-
scription cards enable Indian
River families to save an aver-
age of 36 percent on their pur-
chases.
United Way of Indian River


County partnered with Fami-
lyWize to distribute the free
prescription drug cards in July
2008 and the agency now
reports the cards have saved
residents $85,000.
"We are thrilled that this
program has meant tangible
savings for Indian River
County residents," said CEO
Michael Kint in a press
release.
"In these tough times, every
cent counts," he said.
Lisa London, United Way
marketing director, said that
'-~..-4, -' .. . . ,,** **____.____


3,900 claims have been
processed in the past six
months.
"If you have two $30 pre-
scriptions, that's $60, and
could be a week's worth of
food. That's a big deal for
some people," said Ms. Lon-
don.
"Essentially, people cart use
the card instead of using their
insurance if the savings come
out better, or if they don't have
insurance at all, they can get
their prescription drugs at a
discounted price," said Ms.
London.
Most major prescriptions
are covered by the card, she
said.,
FamilyWize was estab-
lished in 2005 by Dan and
Susan Barnes, a Pennsylvania


couple.
The Barnes negotiated the
discounted prices with the
prescription drug companies
and pharmacies to help save
money for people living and
working in their LehighValley,
Penn., community. News of
the program quickly spread
across the country.
More than 53,000 pharma-
cies have agreed to participate
in the program, and more
than 25,000 faith-based
organizations, county agen-
cies, doctors, pharmacies,
companies and individuals
have begun distributing the
cards in all 50 states, accord-
ing to the FamilyWize Web
site.

ing environment where chil-
dren can apply the skills they
learn in the classrooms to
real-life careers and situa-
tions.
The program is very hands-
on and each child is assigned
a specific job, for which they
must interview, Principal
Mills said.
Students choose from a
variety of agencies to be
employed, such as bankers,
peacekeepers, postal workers,
politicians, tax collectors and
business owners.
As students earn money
and learn to work with others,
they are responsible for
spending their earnings.
The society at the South
Vero school is called ImagiNa-
tion, said the principal.
"It is very exciting for the
kids, because they earn
money and actually have
places they can spend it, such
as Pamper Me Perfect, Unfor-
gettable Photography and
Rock's R' Us," said Principal
Mills.
"The students are trained
and then they run everything,


the teachers just facilitate," he
said.
In the future, Principal Mills
hopes the elementary school
will expand to include middle
school students as well.
"When we do get to add the
middle school, the children
will take what they've learned
about government here and
really be able to take it fur-
ther," said Principal Mills.
Students who have partici-
pated in programs such as
MicroSociety have usually
proven to be more successful
in high school, taking on
more leadership roles, he
said.
Even though it was difficult
at times not having the full
space their new facility has,
teachers and students worked
really hard to make it work
and grew closer in the
process.
He hopes that will continue
in the new building.
"You can tell there's some-
thing special because every-
one's here with the same rea-
son and the same goals," said
the principal.
While the building may be
completed and the students
are enjoying their new facility,
payments on the building hav


e not yet been complete.
More than $200,000 in liens
have been filed against Imag-
ine Schools at South Vero for
unpaid work.
"It's standard procedure for
subcontractors to file a lien
protect their interests until
they've been paid," said
Christian Cascone, develop-
ment director for Imagine
Schools.
An Imagine School in
Flager. also had several liens
filed against it, but those sub-
contractors have now been
paid for all of their work, said
Mr. Cascone.
"The money never stopped
coming," said the develop-
ment director.
Sub-contractors have the
option to file a lien after 30
days, but the payout for Imag-
ine Schools is closer to 60 to
90 days, Mr. Cascone
explained.
'"All those liens have been
cleared in Flagler; it just took
some time and the same
thing will happen here," said
Mr. Cascone.


From left, Imagine School
MicroSociety coordinator
Lynda Sullivan, Chris
Docherty, manager of the

Crooker, business owner

grade teacher and science

by all the parasites whose sole focus is to feed at the public
trough.
There are political parasites, financial parasites, insurance
parasites, legal parasites, medical parasites, employer para-
sites, employee parasites and the list goes on and on.
And because the public servant parasites were so focused on
lining their own pockets and feathering their own nests;
instead of doing their job of protecting our interests and secu-
rity, they failed both to protect us from the present financial
meltdown and from Sept. 11. Sad but true.

Cards
From page A10
There are no eligibility
requirements or waiting peri-
ods before the card can be
used and only one is needed
per household.
Offering the discount cards
is one leg of a new family
financial stability initiative by
United Way, Ms. London said.
'"A lot of people, when they
think of. (United Way) they
think of our fundraising
efforts, and our thermometer
with the little red line," said
Ms. London.
Especially in these current
economic times, United Way
is committed to helping the
community, but is starting to
take a slightly different
approach.

"If we can find ways to save
people money, we're going to
go for it," she said.
The new initiative will tar-
get families with financial and
health concerns, and will
compliment current educa-
tion programs already in
place by United Way.
"If you promote education,
fortify their income and stabi-
lize their health, that's pretty
much the three pillars of what
makes a person successful,"
said Ms. London.
During February and
March, United Way will hold
free tax clinics for people who
make less than $42,000 per
year and the elderly.
A list of tax clinic locations
is available by calling United
Way of Indian River County.
"More and more we are
working on developing pro-
grams in a community and
whatever part of the puzzle
we can fit together, we'll do,"
said Ms. London.
A free prescription drug
card can be printed off of the
Familywize Web site at
www.familywize.com.
For more information on
United Way of Indian River
County's programs, visit
www.unitedwayirc.org, or call
(772) 567-8900. The United
Way Center is located at 1836
14th Ave., Vero Beach.


Healthcare
From page AIO

County Commissioner Joe
Flescher was one of more
than 35 people at the
groundbreaking ceremony.
"It's great among the eco-
nomic challenges to see
something so positive for
the community," said Com-
missioner Flescher.
With employment down
and people losing their ben-
efits, alternative healthcare
facilities, such as Treasure
Coast Community Health
are very, timely and neces-
sary, said' Commission
Flescher.
"With that in mind, the
building can't go up soon
enough. When it is complet-
ed, it will be a tremendous
asset and a compliment to
the surrounding medical
community," he said.
An Oklahoma City-based
company, Cooper Medical
Buildings, has completed
the design and will build the
new facility.
The design plans show the
center will have a pharmacy,
X-ray area, dental office, 11
patient exam rooms and
administrative office space.

alternative healthcare center for people in the South Vero area, is expected to be com-
plete in late 2009.


The estimated total cost of
the 10,000-square-foot
building is $3 million.
According to the organi-
zation's Web site, Treasure
Coast community Health
serves more than 7,000


patients annually and pro-
vides more than 23,000
patient visits.
"This is easy to believe in
and I'm glad to have the
opportunity to have this
available," said Mr. Loftus.

Protect

plants

in cold

weather
o far this season, we have
been seeing our fair
share of cold tempera-
tures and near-freezing
conditions.
For many of our readers
north of Indian River County,
freezing temperatures are
even more likely to happen,
although in some cases of a
hard freeze, plant damage
may occur no matter what
precautions you might
undertake. In almost all cases
you can at least minimize the
damage by taking a few
precautionary steps before
the cold sets in.
First, scan your yard to see
what plant varieties you have
and decide which ones will
need to be prioritized for
protecting. If your plants are
in containers, these are
candidates for moving to a
new, safer location.You can
easily move these plants into
a garage, shed or even onto a
blanket in your living room.
This is the safest way to
protect your plants when
possible.
. If the pots are large, heavy
and cumbersome you can
use an ordinary hand truck to
easily move the load. I
purposely keep many of my
plants in large containers so I
can move them easily in the
event of a freeze or hurricane.
If you cannot move your
plants, here are some other
guidelines you can follow to
help minimize the effects of
the cold snap. If you have
some smaller bushes or
flowers,.use ordinaryplant
pots turned upside and

Still, if you stay at a hotel you
may not have to do the daily

entertainment, kids' pro-
grams, adult activities,
nightlife, beach activities
and more.
Cruising with a group to
celebrate a special occasion
also is inclusive (except for
alcohol) and is very popular,
particularly if you live in the
southeast where there are
many cruise homeports. Not
having to add airfare to the
vacation budget is a plus.
There are activities for every
age on a cruise.
Destination weddings or
weddings on board a cruise
ship (currently referred to as
"wedding moons") are
getting increasingly popular,
so much so that early
booking is very necessary.
Many of the most popular
dates are booked a year or
more in advance. Valentine's,
June and the NewYear are
very popular for brides-to-
be.
Planning anywedding or
reunion for that matter is all
in the details, whether you
have it in your hometown,
on a cruise or at a destina-


tion.
Each resort and cruise line
has a wedding coordinator
to help you choose from a
variety of packages. With a
hometown wedding or
anniversary celebration you
have many choices such as
venue, caterer, florist,
photographer, etc.
On a cruise or at a destina-
tion, those are limited to
what is available by the hotel
or cruise ship.
All travel plans can be
taken care of by a travel
consultant that works
directly with the cruise line
or resort. This takes the
pressure off the person
responsible for putting it all
together.
One important thing to
'remember about cruising
with a group is that you can
spend as much time with
others in your group or as
little; it is all up to you. On a
cruise you may all sit
together for dinner, but the
rest of the day is yours,
unless you have an organ-
ized gathering planned.'
With a reunion cruise, you
may reserve a room to hold a
meeting or a gathering that
may include audio and video
for slide show or films of
days gone by. There is
generally no cost to this
feature unless you order
food or drink, etc.

Many companies use this

(for a nominal fee).
I mentioned earlier that
there can be pitfalls. This is
where planners should take
in all options.
If you choose a destination
or cruise event, you have to
take into consideration that
not all will be able to attend.
In some cases, it might be
the expense of the travel, but
in others, it could be time
away from family or busi-
ness. Your best friend from
high school may not be able
to attend the reunion or your
closest relative cannot be
part of your wedding day.
This is a tough decision for
many.
If you plan at least one
year out, then many will be
able put down a deposit and
make payments (depending
on the agency) until it is paid
in full.
There maybe discounts
with group travel or added
amenities to take advantage
of. Whatever the reason for
traveling with a group, it can
be a great way to spend time
with friends and family.
Contact a reputable travel
consultant to help with you
with your plans. They can be.
a valuable asset to your
special event.

Beautiful bromelaids


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Vero Beach residents Cathy Emerick, left, and Dorothy 'Tootie' Geis admire thp
bromeliads at a booth during GardenFest 2009 in Riverside Park last weekend. This
year the event drew thousands looking for the best in the world of horticulture and
the like.


Garden
From page A14
placed over the plant. Please
note that the pot should not
touch the plant itself, but
rather act as a tent over the
plant.
For larger plants, cover
them with old sheets or
blankets. You can always pick
up bargain sheets at your
local dollar store for this
purpose. It is important to
note that covering your plants
with plastic can do more
harm than good in many
cases. If you must use plastic,
it is imperative to tent the
plastic in such away that it
does not come in contact
with the plant itself. Any part
of the plant that comes in
contact with the plastic
sheeting can be seriously
damaged because of the cold
conductive qualities of the
plastic.
There are some natural
conditions that can help
lessen the impact of cold on
your plants.
For example, if you have a
fence surrounding your yard,
the effect of blocking the cold


wind could help your tender
plants survive. If your plants
reside under a large tree
canopy, this can also be
beneficial. The canopy
actually helps by reducing the
effect of radiational cooling,
and also can block the effects
of frost.
Another trick you can use
for larger plants that cannot.
be covered is to place a heavy
coating of mulching material
around the root base. This
will help keep the roots of the
plant warm and allow a better
chance of the plant regenerat-
ing new growth, even if some
of the existing growth is
damaged and needs to be
removed.
If you have a large area that
needs to be protected, you
can use stakes to form a
frame and then use sheets or
cloth to form a tent over the
entire area. You can then
place a small light fixture with


a 60-watt bulb under the
canopy to help maintain
enough heat in the tent to
keep the plants above
freezing.
Be sure to keep the bulb
away from the fabric or
plastic. As an added bonus,
you can also use this same
method to protect your above
ground water pipes if you
have a well.
Many people have tried
using water to help protect
their plants during freezing
conditions. This method is
not recommended, as any
interruption of the water
supply can cause a lot more
damage than if you left the
plants exposed and did
nothing.
As you can see, by taking a
few simple precautions, you
can help minimize damage
from the recent cold temper-
atures.

Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH - His dis-
tinctive Boston-apea
speech pattern is just one
clue this Vero Beach artist
not only came from New
England, but also drew his
artistic inspiration from
that region.
Paul R. Davis is, indeed,
a transplanted "bay state"
who is making his mark as
a formidable marine artist,
whose works are sold
nearly as fast as he can
paint them.
During February, Mr.
Davis'' nautical and
seascape oil paintings will
be featured at the Artists
Guild Gallery located at 44
Royal Palm Pointe in Vero
Beach.
Mr. Davis is a perma-
nent artist consignor at
the gallery and his' works
are being specially fea-
tured on the gallery's guest
artist panels in February.
An opening reception to
celebrate "Paul H1. Davis -
Marine Artist Extraordi-

event is free and open to
the public and will include
refreshments, wine and

'Racing the Storm,' by Paul R. Davis will be 'on display, along with his other works,
throughout February at the Artists Guild Gallery in Vero Beach. A reception for Mr.
Davis will be held at the gallery on Feb. 6.


Boston, Mr. Davis discov-
ered in his youth that he
had both artistic ability as
well as a knack for tech-
nology and science. Two
uncles were painters and
when he was a child, and
they taught him how to
use and mix paint.
By the time he was a
high school junior, Mr.
Davis' artistic talent had
earned him a scholarship
to the renowned Museum
of Fine Art in Boston.
But a school guidance
counselor advised him
instead to pursue an edu-
cation in a more technical
field.
"He told me that lots of


people were good at art
and it would be difficult,
but that he could get me a
scholarship because I was
good in math and sci-
ence," Mr. Davis said.
He enrolled at North-
eastern University and
subsequently worked for
35 years in electrical engi-
neering and education.
Mr. Davis also married
Cynthia, a woman he had
known since age 6, who
lived across the street. The
couple is celebrating their
50th anniversary this year.
During his school and
throughout his career, he
continued to paint.

"At the end of the day, being on

Paris notes.
Budding Talents is a new pro-
gram for children, ages 7-14, that
will specialize in acting, singing
and dancing instruction. No prior
performing experience is neces-

Paris earned a bachelor of fine arts
degree in musical theatre and was

ues to shine and brighten
the world around you. You

reflection of the good, cre-
ative power that gives, sus-
tains and increases life. Con-
tinue to live in peace and
harmony with yourself and
others. Stay excited about
today and the endless possi-
bility to live life to he fullest
and-you will.

Taurus - April 20-May 20
You have a powerful mind;
but your ,best results come
when you follow your heart
and instincts. Balance is the
key. Without it, the stress
begins to slow you down
and wear you out. When
this happens, take a step
back, slow down and ask for
spiritual guidance to get
back on track. Now you
have the great blessing and
life will be better than ever.

Gemini - May 21-June 21
Continue to. create a new
and better life for yourself
and those you love. Refuse
to let the occasional storm
slow you down or hold you
back. You are the master
communicator of the uni-
verse you know. Listen twice
as much as you speak. Be
grateful daily for your many
blessings. Firm up your daily
plans before taking action.
Now all is well.

Cancer - June 22-July 22
Your strong belief in doing
things right reflects your
good heartedness and
strong conscience. These
qualities are a major factor
in your personal and profes-
sional success. You can
always be counted on to get
the job done and do the
right thing. Your strong emo-
tional nature is the essence
of life. For this you are to be
rewarded.

Leo - July 23-Aug. 22
Because of your recent cre-
ative output, many more
positive results are on the
way. This attitude of positive
expectancy rubs off on oth-
ers and makes them want to
help you get what you want.
Now be generous and share
your . blessings. This is a
wonderful way to live and
what Leos, the kings and
queens of the jungle, are all

From page B1
"But they're northern
paintings because I think
there are plenty of good
Florida artists here doing
these seascapes," Mr. David
said.
Over the years, and per-
haps as a result of the influ-
ence he gained through the
Old Dutch Masters hung at
the Boston Museum of Fine
Art, Mr. Davis developed a
unique palette and paint-
ing technique.
"The style I use didn't
develop intentionally, but I
spent so much time at the
museum and I migrated to
the Dutch Masters who did
tonal paintings in earth
tones.
"I use a very limited
palette and I use glazings,"
Mr. Davis said.
The layers of glaze add a
sheen and dreamy quality
to the works.
"People say my paintings
are so peaceful and quiet. I
feel very lucky because it
seems I hit upon the right
style and subject matter,"
Mr. Davis said.
He also wants purchasers
to be completely satisfied.
"I give them a three-week
return policy because I
want them to enjoy it," he
said.
Apparently, art lovers do,
because Mr. Davis sold 55
paintings last year and
already is working on com-
missions this New Year.
"The initial creation is
very exciting. You start with
an empty canvas. I'm very
critical of my work and I
paint only in oils because
with them, I can really beat
the canvas up.
"At some point, you fall in
love with your painting and
the big thrill is that some-
one would pick my paint-
ing to hang in their home,"
Mr. Davis said.

them. Speak up a little. This
allows your loved ones to

Now everyone is happy.
What a wonderful way to
live.

tions.
Mrs. Paris' theatrical
career got a big boost after
winning a role in "Mamma
Mia," which was playing
at Mandalay Bay in Las
Vegas.
"It was an open casting
call and I waited for eight
hours, finally went in and
sang my 16 bars.
"The following day, I got
a call back and then two
or three more. I was
offered the small role of
Lisa and I did that show
for three years," Mrs. Paris
said.
By that time, Eric decid-
ed to leave Los Angeles
and move to Las Vegas,
where he became theater
operations manager for
the famed Blue Man
Group at the Luxor Hotel.
"We were living the life
out there and having a
great time," Mrs. Paris
said.
By then, the couple
married and was working
at two of the most presti-
gious hotels on the strip.
But they missed their
families back east and
realized that they had
never tried to "make it" in
the Mecca of theater: New
York City.
"So we sold our house in
'Las Vegas and moved back
east to New York City,"
Mrs. Paris said.
City apartment prices
were a "sticker shock" at
$2,500 per month for 500
square feet.
They ended up across
the Hudson River in Madi-
son, N.J., which was still
close to the city, but with-
out its intensity and astro-
nomical prices.
Mrs. Paris returned to
her dancing roots with a
stint as a ballroom danc-
ing instructor. But with
the advent of the couple's
'first child, the pair decid-
ed it was time to put down
more permanent roots
near family members.
An opportunity opened
for Mr. Paris to become
manager of the, popular
Vero Beach eatery
Tomkats, and with a new-
born son, Mrs. Paris cut
back her full-time per-
forming and teaching
duties.
But she performed for a
recent open house at
Riverside Theatre and
directed a Christmas show
at a community church
which. featured 30 chil-
dren.
"I've always loved to
teach and choreograph
and be involved with per-
forming arts programs for
children. I hope Budding
Talents inspires lots of
youngsters to go out and
do what they love to do,"
Mrs. Paris said.

Indians prepare to make run at districts with senior pulling the strings


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
VERO BEACH - Among
her ever-growing list of
accomplishments, Vero
Beach girls basketball player,
Carrie Orcutt, has been play-
ing the cello for 10 years.
On the court, she has been
making beautiful music as
well, helping the Indians to
one of their best seasons in
recent history. With Orcutt
leading .the way with a
game-high 24 points, Vero,
Beach downed Fort Pierce
Central 53-47 to win its
ninth straight in late Janu-
ary, upping its record to 18-
4.
A blowout victory over St.
Lucie West Centennial on
Jan. 29 made it a a perfect 10
in a row.
"Coming into this season,
I thought we could be really


good," Orcutt said. "We were
only losing two players. Four
or five of us were starting
since our sophomore years
and had been there before."
The good vibes and
positive outlook surrounding
the Vero Beach girls basket-
ball team is an abrupt turn-
around from this time last
season when. an ineligible
player forced the team to
forfeit all its wins heading
into the district tournament.
The Indians won their
playoff opener 58-31, but fell
in the semifinals to Osceola,
"finishing" 1-26, instead of
the 17-10 mark they earned
onthe court.
"We were put in a difficult
position, but I think we
responded well after the ini-
tial hit," Orcutt said. "Having
to forfeit those games has
given us the extra drive to be
able to succeed this season.

School's Carrie
Orcutt, left, is

ian River High

during the their
match-up Jan. 15 at
Vero Beach.


"We all have it in the back
of our minds."
In a season of impressive
victories, arguably Vero
Beach's biggest came against
Sebastian River on Jan. 15.
After suffering a 1-point
defeat to the Sharks in
December, the Indians
cruised past their county
rival 46-30 with Orcutt lead-
ing all scorers with 25 points,
including four 3-pointers.
"It was senior night,"
Orcutt said. "I had so much
fun that game. If we play like
that (all the time), I don't
think we'll come out on the
losing side in any battle."
For most of this season,
Orcutt's words have proved
prophetic. The Indians have
excelled on both sides of the
ball, with the Vero Beach res-
ident leading the way offen-

A chance to play with the pros


W watching the early
season events on
the PGA Tour, we
find a common trend.
Most all of them are pro-
ams with celebrities and the
overly wealthy taking up the
amateur spots.
If you're like me, you've
often wondered how sweet
it would be to play in one of
these events. If you're like
me, you also lack the coin
needed to tee it up with the
pros in one of these events.

STAMMER


I'm here today to inform
you that your chance has
arrived.
On Feb. 21, at Errol Estate
Country Club in Apopka,
just outside Orlando, you
can tee it up with one of the

touring professionals of the
LPGA's Duramed Futures
Tour..
Imagine one day being
able to say that you played
in a pro-am with the
Women's U.S. Open cham-
pion or the world's No. 1
golfer? Lorena Ochoa, the
game's top player, Christina
Kim, Grace Park and Beth
Bauer, are just a few gradu-
ates of the Duramed
Futures Tour.
The Duramed Futures
Tour is the developmental
tour for ladies striving to
become top pros on the
LPGA Tour. Playing the tour
requires a good-sized
financial commitment from
these mostly young womqn.
This event is designed to
help pros in need of assis-
tance, while allowing
regular golfers the opportu-
nity to meet and play with
these wonderful women.
Dave Andrews, a retired
sportscaster from Channel 9
in Orlando, along with
several friends, created the
Future Starts Foundation to
help many of the players
who struggle financially


each season.
Playing for just a few
thousand dollars in prize
money makes it difficult to
travel the country playing in
the tour's 18 or so events.
Their expenses for travel,
entry fees and meals alone
are more than $30,000.
The goal of the founda-
tion, and this pro-am event,
is to help as many players as
possible to keep their
dreams of playing on the
LPGA Tour alive and
kicking.
Andrews has even written
a novel titled "Pops and
Sunshine," a moving story
about Lisa Nelson, a
beautiful 20-year-old pro on
the Duramed Futures Tour.
Struggling with the loss of
her father, and the pressure
to win the year's final event
or give up her dream, makes
this a moving and wonder-
ful story that any golfer or
golf fan will enjoy.
The fundraising Pro-Am
at Eriol Estate Country Club
is the inaugural fundraising
event for the foundation.

"I look at it as a chal-
lenge," Orcutt said. "Coach
(Rahshard) Morgan has
emphasized to us to do our
jobs during the season. My
job is to shoot the basket-
ball and score points."
Orcutt has done a lot of
both, helping the Indians -
to score in the 50s on a
regular basis. She also has
been a force on the
boards, pulling down 10
rebounds in a win over
Palm Bay earlier in the
season.
"Carrie is a coach's
dream," Morgan said. "She
is a godsend on the bas-
ketball court. She is like a
coach on the floor.
"She recognizes things
that most players don't
see."
Like most players,
Orcutt first became enam-
ored with the sport at an


early age.
"The first time (I played)
was in the fifth grade in an
intramural league," Orcutt
said. "I learned to love the
game. I can't be around it
enough.
"I'm either watching it
on TV or going to other
high-school games."
At Vero Beach, Orcutt
played on junior varsity as
-a freshman, before moving
up to varsity for her soph-
omore season.
"It was definitely diffi-
cult," Orcutt said of the
transition. "There were
faster-paced games.
Coach Morgan did a good
job of preparing me."
Now in her final season
and with the district tour-
nament in full swing,
Orcutt is hoping to tune
up the band for their best
run of the season.
"We have a really good
shot at going far," Orcutt
said. "Winning a district
championship would be
amazing."

Society readies



for annual bash


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com

Children's Home Society
will hold its fourth annual
Rockin' Vero Beach on Feb.
13.
The bash, which has
quickly become the event
of the season, will have a
different kind of theme this
year, The Air of Mystere.
This year's event will be
held in the private airplane
hangar of Rodger Pridgeon,
president and owner of
Corporate Air. As in the
past, the hangar is being
transformed and this year,
participants should be
prepared to enter a truly an
atmosphere that will
mystify and thrill all who
attend.
Chairing this year's event
are Barbara Leigh and
Marta Schneider. The event
will include a cocktail party
and opportunities to mix,


meet and mingle, as well as
a seated dinner, live music
and dancing, and a little
mystery.
There will be silent and
live auctions and plenty of
ways to support the pro-
grams of Children's Home
Society.
The proceeds help
provide much-needed
funds to continue opera-
tions and services at the
Baines Hall Girls Group
Home, located inVero
Beach, that provides a safe
and stable residence for
girls between 12 and 18
who do not have the option
of being returned to their
families.
Tickets cost $200 each
and include the cocktail
party, dinner, entertain-
ment and auction.

For more information,
call (772) 489-5601, Ext.
237, or visit www.chsfl.org.

From page B 11

The event starts with a
12:30 p.m. shotgun,
followed by dinner and
awards.
Players will compete in
four-person teams, one
Futures Tour pro and
three amateurs. The pros
score along with the best
one of the three amateurs
will count for each hole.
While playing your
round, you will enjoy the
company of a young star
in the making.
Errol Estate is located
in the rolling hills of
Apopka. The 27-hole Joe
Lee- designed course
dips and rolls around
innumerable vistas,
impressive landscaping
and towering pine and
oak trees, -creating
dramatic views on every
hole.
I had the pleasure of
playing this course a few
years ago. The elevation
changes and beautiful
views, along with the lush
fairways and perfect
greens, made for a
delightful round of golf.
In fact, you'll be hard-
pressed to remember
that you're still in Florida.
The course has a distinct-
ly Carolina feel to it,
providing a great atmos-
phere for a round of golf.
. Cost for the entire
event is only $200. For
this low price you get a
round of golf at one of
central Florida's best
private courses with a
touring lady professional,
dinner, prizes and the
great feeling that goes
with helping a young
woman achieve her
dream.
