bS HOW WEIRD

SEAN MCCARTHY



pend any time surfing
theWeb and you are
bound to find stories
that are just too bizarre to be
true. Here's a sampling,
edited for length. And
remember, just because it's
online doesn't mean it's true
From Bismarck Ti i ,ii,
www.bismarcktribune.com:
Drunk man found at grocery
store eating avocados.
Police said a man was
arrested at a grocery store
after workers found him at a
table in the deli, eating
avocados, cake and other
items.
Bismarck Police Lt. Randy
Ziegler said the 38-year-old
man was intoxicated and
had a hearty spread, includ-
ing cake, cookies and plums,
in the deli area of Cashwise
Foods about 2:45 a.m. He
said the man told officers he
had no money and had no
idea how he planned to pay
for the food. Police arrested
him on a misdemeanor theft
charge.
From Skagit Valley Herald,

: Chicken owner shoots own

A northwestWashington
man is recovering after
accidentally shooting
himself in the leg while
hunting an opossum that
had been snatching his
chickens.
Larry Tenbrink of Mount
Vernon was watching TV
when he heard his chickens
"carrying on" late Sunday. He
figured the problem was the
opossum that had already
killed more than a dozen of
his chickens.
He grabbed his .22 caliber

of a large cat wandering his

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY- The
Indian River County Chamber of
Commerce announced the for-
mation of a new group with a
vision to bring life science
research and advanced technolo-
gies to the region.
The Indian River County Con-
sortium for Life Science Research
and Technology Advancement,
which is made up of county and
city government officials, educa-


tors and private organizations,
signed an accord that expresses
their desire to promote the coun-
ty and bring more resources to the
area.
"Initiatives that have come
forth from community leaders
clearly demonstrate a broad-
based consensus that better- pay-
ing jobs are important to our resi-
dents and our tax base," said C.
William Curtis Jr., chairman of the
Chamber of Commerce Board of
Directors in a press release.
"It will take all of us working

Nonprofit works to eradicate SUBSTANCE ABUSE

Offer prevention education and recovery counseling


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY-
What started out 20 years ago as
a place for people to seek infor-
mation about assistance for sub-
stance abuse addiction, has
grown into a multi-faceted
organization with services for
substance abuse prevention
education, counseling, drug
screens and referral services for
the whole community.
The Substance Abuse Council
of Indian River County will cele-
brate 20 years of service to the
community in the coming
months and every day they help
dozens of people struggling with
addictions to life damaging
habits, said Robin Dapp, execu-
tive director.
"It started as a referral service
for people who discovered that a
friend or family member has a
problem, or they want to help
themselves and they don't know
where to go," said Ms. Dapp.
September is National Alcohol
and Drug Addiction Recovery
Month. For many, the struggle to
sobriety can be helped by shar-
ing experiences with other peo-
ple and the SAC can suggest
many local group sessions, such
as Alcoholic Anonymous, that
can be a point of accountability,
said Ms. Dapp.
On a regular basis, the SAC
offers both adult and adolescent


counseling programs with
licensed mental health coun-
selors on-site.
"The best thing to do is to call
us and talk to our counselors to
decide what type of counseling
would be the best fit," said Ms.
Dapp.
"We always
highly
r e c -


and shouldn't be ashamed to ask
for help for.
"Substance abuse addiction is a
disease that is so insidious and the
natural place for people to be is in
denial. People come to us asking
what to do for a person who does-
n't recognize their problem and we
try to help them see it as we can;
be objective about it," she

"It's not just a negative thing, a
punitive thing, but if you look at
is as therapeutic thing, where
you're constantly thinking about
being tested, it might help you
think about whether or not you'll
be abusing the different sub-
stances," she explained.
A big focus of the SAC is on
preventative education. Health
educators from the SAC teach
classes in area public schools.
Deep Impact, an improve teen
drama group, takes real-life situ-
ations that teens find themselves
in, and incorporates drug-free
messages into their performanc-
es. The group performs in
schools, churches and for civic
organizations on request.
The nonprofit's big annual
fundraiser, the Law Enforcement
Charity Classic, is scheduled for
Sept. 26, at Grand Harbor Golf
and Beach Club inVero Beach.
The SAC is currently looking
for sponsors and players to par-
ticipate in the ninth annual golf
tournament.
The shotgun start will begin at
8:30 a.m. and the whole tourna-
ment will be in a scramble for-
mat.
All the proceeds raised from
the event will benefit the SAC.

is located at 1151 19th St., Vero

INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY Now that schools
are back in session, the
Indian River County
School District and the
Florida Department of
Transportation want to
remind everyone to drive
safely.
In a press release, the
two organizations pro-
vided the following safety
tips for motorists, pedes-
trians and cyclists.
In the mornings and
afternoons, when chil-
dren are going to and
leaving school, motorists
should be on constant
alert in neighborhoods
where children may be
walking on the street.
State law requires cars
to stop behind school
buses with red flashing
lights and an extended
stop arm, while children


board or disembark from
the bus.
Talking or texting on a
cell phone can be a big
distraction, so officials
recommend drivers put
the phones away and be
alert to changing speed
limits in school zones.
Teen drivers are espe-
cially encouraged to
avoid any distractions
while driving, such as
eating, talking on cell
phones, adjusting the
radio or texting.
For children walking or
riding bicycles to school,
law enforcement officials
recommend wearing
bright-colored clothing
that makes it easier for
motorists to see them.
Students are always
encouraged to wear safe-
ty helmets when biking.
Officials say parents
and teens can be the best
examples in safe driving

VERO BEACH Who
knew that an imaginary
grandmother would make
such an impact on so
many children?
Artist and author Tomie
dePaola, well known for
his Strega Nona book
series for children, will
visit the Vero
Beach Book
Center at 5
p.m. on Sept.
22 to present
his newest ft
book, "Strega
Nona's Har- .
vest."
Mr. dePaola
has earned
many acco-
lades for his
work, includ-
ing a Calde- Tomie
cott Honor
Book award
for the original book,
"Strega Nona," more than
30 years ago.
Since then, thousands of
children have come to
know and love the wise
Italian granny, and with
his new book, Strega Nona
will be introduced to a new
generation of young read-
ers.
His last book, "Brava,
Strega Nona!" was a care-
fully crafted pop-up book,
in collaboration with
paper engineers Matthew
Reinhart and Robert Sabu-
da.
"The book is beautiful
because of them," said Mr.
dePaola.
Strega Nona, an Italian
woman of grandmother
age, is the main character
in the book series. She is
often found helping the
townspeople with various
ailments and needs, and


d


instructing her bumbling
assistant, Big Anthony,
who is notorious for not
paying close attention.
Mr. dePaola says many
times, the ideas for the
Strega Nona stories come
from his experiences, but
other seem to develop with
the characters.
"Strega Nona herself
sometimes gives me ideas,
just by whis-
pering them
in my ears,"
he said
laughingly.
r This will
be the sec-
ond time Mr.
dePaola vis-
its the book
center, said
Cynthia
Graben -
bauer, publi-
lePaola cist for the
book center.
"He's very
kind and he has that little
twinkle in his eyes. We are
very honored that he is
coming again," said Ms.
Grabenbauer.
"The story talks about
the importance of order in
gardening and also of
sharing with others in the
harvest," said Ms. Graben-
bauer.
Teaching children a les-
son is never his plan while
writing, Mr. dePaola said.
"I never start out trying
to teach something to any-
body, but sometimes,
there is a lot of teaching in
life and it's a natural part
of the story," he said.
In conjunction with the
harvest-themed tale, event
participants are encour-
aged to bring foodstuffs to
donate to a local homeless
shelter, Ms. Grabenbauer
said.

Book Center on Sept. 22 to greet fans and pose for photos.


or illustrated more than
200 books for children.
Due to Mr. dePaola's
planned hand surgery, he
may not sign the books in
person during the event,
but will be available for
questions and photos after
the presentation, Ms.
Grabenbauer said.
Pre-event autographed

able, she said.

ANALOGUE
OR DIGITAL
Most watches and clocks are either
ANALOGUE or DIGITAL, which
refers to the type of dial. However,
some can be both. Analogue
watches have hands to indicate the
time. The hours can be portrayed
by numbers, or simply by the posi-
tion of the hands. Digital watches
indicate time in changing numbers,
usually with an LED (light emitting
diode) or an LCD (liquid crystal dis-
play), but whenever time is shown
without hands, the timepiece is
called digital. We can compare the
structure of the quartz watch with a
mechanical watch. The basic differ-
ence between the two is that the
mechanical watch uses a quartz
crystal as an oscillator and a bat-
tery for power. The battery charges
the synthetic quartz crystal, caus-
ing it to vibrate at 32,768 HZ cycles
per second. The integrated circuit
(or brain of the watch) then trans-
lates this rapid vibration into sec-
onds, minutes and hours. The step
motor converts the vibration into
movement, and the gear train, in
turn, works the hands of the watch.
You are probably familiar with the
mainspring, which is wound manu-
ally or automatically. The main-
spring then sends power through
the gear train to the escapement.
The escapement, in turn, sends
impulses to the balance which con-
trols the speed of the gear train.
The controlled speed of the gear
train is sent though the motion work
(or dial train) resulting in the record-
ed time you see on the dial of the
watch.
We are able to help you with your
watch, replacing batteries while you
wait and doing any type of work
necessary to fix your watch,
whether it is a crystal, new move-
ment, service, stem and crown.
Don't hesitate to stop in with your
watch and we can answer any
questions you might have.

Waterway

cleanup a

success
For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY-The
Marine Industries Associa-
tion of the Treasure Coast
conducted its second Trea-
sure Coast Waterway
Cleanup July 25.
Thanks to sponsorship
from the Florida Inland
Navigation District,
MIATC, and more than
1,000 volunteers collected
trash along the waterways
of Martin, St. Lucie and
Indian River counties this
summer.
More than 1,000 volun-
teers and 300 boats collab-
orated to cover more than
125 miles of waterways in
the region.
The cleanup extended to
inlet dives at the Near
Shore Reef in Indian River
County, the Sebastian and
Fort Pierce inlets, conduct-
ed by Operation Blue
Streak and an offshore reef
dive at Pecks Lake, con-
ducted by the Port Salerno
Commercial Fishing Dock
Authority in Martin Coun-
ty.
"We are very pleased
with this year's effort," said
Steve Haigis, president of
the MIATC. "Everyone
came away from the event
feeling we really made a
difference."
Overall 52 fishing nets
were retrieved, along with
miles of fishing line. Some
of the more unusual items
include 26 anchors
retrieved from the dive
teams, a bimini top, several
pairs of underwear, an air
conditioner, a deflated
inflatable boat, a Big
Wheel, several homemade
toilets, a solar panel, a mat-
tress and box spring, a cou-
ple of dressers, a dozen
bicycles, street barricades
and a bath tub.

VIEWPOINT

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2009 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM


Letter to the editor

The rest of the story

Larry Reisman's editorial of Aug. 19 once again exemplifies
the Press Journal motto, "Only report half the story and then
screw up the half you report."
About the only thing Larry got correct was yes, the commis-
sion did vote to waive five of our nine impact fees for a six-
month period to help spur economic activity in the county.
During the public hearing on this action, the board was
unanimous in that we did not believe residential construction
needed any stimulus, due to the record inventory and vacan-
cies, and that the waiver was targeting commercial and indus-
trial projects to create more jobs.
However, the county attorney gave the opinion that any
impact fee reduction would have to apply to all building per-
mits, both residential and commercial. However, we did
structure the waiver so that residential only received an
approximate 10 percent reduction, while most commercial
and industrial projects received a 35 percent break or larger.
Larry also failed to report that 16 commercial projects did
pull permits during the four month waiver period to date
(waiver was effective April 1). These projects included office
buildings, aquaculture facilities, churches, a bank, a club-
house and a restaurant. The total value of the new projects
was $8.6 million, arguably not a real big number, but certainly
better than zero.
While I cannot speak for the entire board, I believe we are
very cognizant and committed to diversifying our economy,
but that kind of change takes time and patience.
The impact-fee waiver was always designed as a short-term
action to try to generate some activity so folks could put food
on the table. We realize the impact-fee waiver is not the long-
term solution.
One way to attract diversified employment centers is to
make sure our county reflects a "business friendly" climate, a
county that is sensitive to the needs of the business commu-
nity. I firmlybelieve a short-term waiver of impact fees during
this economic crisis does reflect sensitivity to the needs of the
business community, and thus, is a step forward to a more
diversified economy.
I welcome comments on the subject, which can be mailed
to the county administration building or my e-mail at
pobryan@ircgov.com.

Drivers, be careful

Please, please, please drivers, do not take your eyes off the
road while you drive.
With everyone in such a hurry or full of stress lately, it
only takes a split second for you to accidentally run a light
or sign, or someone else not seeing you coming because
they reached over to tune the radio or something, and your
whole day and possibly your world can change in a
moment with an accident.
This happened to me recently and although I was not
hurt, my car is now in the shop getting fixed, and all it took
was a quick, momentary distraction. Then, I had a big dent
in the door.
There are so many ways we can lose our focus with driv-
ing: texting, phone conversations, tuning radios, reaching
on the floor for something, putting makeup on, even eating.
Be careful out there, everyone, and keep your eyes on the
road and hands on the wheel for your own protection. I
could have been paralyzed for life.

Show some patriotism

Wouldn't it be nice if our county were seen as the most
patriotic community in the state?
One way to get this recognition would be if everybody flew
the American flag on Labor Day. Let's all show the colors.

Seatbelt rights

This is about the seatbelt law. We should all make our own
choices. If you get hurt while you don't wear it, oh well, we
are all adults. But there is a dummy on a motorcycle with-

Science mini-camp


- -........--.

Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Middle school students from all over Indian River County converged on Gifford Middle School Saturday to take part
in Observation Station. The annual event gives middle school students a leg up in the world of science. Students rotat-
ed among 14 stations and listened to topics related to NASA, physics, aquaculture, and even butterfly gardening.
Sarah Rhodes-Odni, a naturalist at the Environmental Learning Center was on hand to teach students how to create
and gather information for a science project.


How to read previous columns


One of the more
frequently asked
questions that show
up in my in basket are
"where can I get a copy of a
previous column"? or "can
you send me a copy of that
column where you wrote
about [whatever]"?
I have always in the past
replied to these requests
with a link to the Hometown
News' own Web site where
you can find an archive
filled with all of my past
columns (along with
absolutely tons of other
awesome Hometown News
content!). Just go to
www.myhometownnews. net
and look down the left hand
side for the "Computer /
Technology link." Click that
and you will see my most
recent column and be able
to access the archives by
clicking (you guessed it!)
the archives link.
This week I am happy to
announce the launch of my
newsletter along with my
Web site, www.Com-
puteThisOnline.com.
If you have emailed me in
the past and I replied with
some type of helpful advice
then you are probably
already on my list and have
received a copy or two of
the newsletter because that
is where I got my first batch
of addresses.
If we have never commu-


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


nicated before and you
would like to be added to
my newsletter mailing list,
the easiest way to get
yourself included is to visit
myWeb site, www.Com-
puteThisOnline.com, and
find the "Sign Up For My E-
mail Newsletter, It's Free!"
thingy about halfway down
the page on the right hand
side.
The idea of a newsletter is
not a new one people
have been asking me for
one for years and I have
resisted. You see, I hate
spam the last thing I
want to do is flood every-
one's in basket with unso-
licited emails and, up till
now, I didn't see any way to
publish a newsletter
without contributing to the
spam problem.
The way around the
whole spam issue is to send
the newsletter only to
people who want to hear
from me and to make sure
that each and every recipi-
ent has a way to instantly
remove themselves from
the list should they decide
they no longer want to


receive my newsletter.
On the flip side of that
there also needs to be a way
for people to add them-
selves to the list without
much difficulty and the list
needs to be easy to manage.
I found all these things in a
system called Constant
Contact and so far, I have to
say I'm impressed with their
system.
Summer is always the
slow time for me and this
summer was one of the
slowest. What that means is
that I have had a lot of time
these last few months to
put things in place to better
serve you, my faithful
readers. Things like myWeb
site with sometimes daily
updates, ComputeThisOn-
line.com (a companion site
to this column) can be
considered "fresh" enough
for regular return visits.
Click on by and take a look.
I welcome your feedback.
I have also added a toll
free number for everyone
outside of my local area. I
know that many of you live
quite a ways away from me
and are often reluctant to
make a toll call. Now I can
be reached at (888) 752-
9049 as well as (772) 408-
0680 and I do try to answer
(or return) every call I get.
The other things that I
have ironed out are how I
can connect to you over the


Internet consistently when
you do need help, and ways
you can pay me that aren't
so painful. I've taken the
time to find several secure
ways to connect to your
machines remotely so I can
fix many issues over the
Internet without much fuss.
It typically only takes me
about three or four minutes
to connect to you regardless
of whether you are right
next door or 3,000 miles
away. That means I can
often (not always, but
often) take care of problems
right away without having
to set up an appointment
way off in the future and
then use a bunch of gas
getting there. So I guess you
could say my business is
"going green!"
I have also put together a
"Back to School" special
where I offer to tune up and
check out your computer
over the internet for a low
flat fee and I am able to
collect payment by credit
card another thing that
has been a long time
coming.
So, visit my Web site and
join my mailing list you'll
be glad you did!

Dealing with grief, one year later


Sept. 13 is the first
anniversary of my
husband Roy's death.
I want to thank my
readers for the kind
expressions of sympathy
and understanding I've
received and to let you
know how I am doing.
In many ways, I am a
different person. Losing a
spouse after a long mar-
riage is a bit like being in
your 20s again, in the sense
that you have to make a life
for yourself.
You have a lot more
experience and a lot more
aches and pains. Still, the
process is, in many ways,
the same. You try some-
thing and if it doesn't work,
you move on to something
else.
As I've written, I have
begun doing yoga and I've
become pretty good at it.
My teacher, Sherry Killila,
asked me why I hadn't done
yoga before and I told her
that I'd tried it years ago
and it was too complicated.
I gave up.
There's a lesson there. So
many of us give up after
one try. Now I'm so thrilled


with the class I've found -
the right one for me that
I hope to keep doing it for
years.
One of the things you
realize when you lose a
spouse is that suddenly,
you're not first in anyone's
life. It sounds so selfish, but
it's true. There's a tendency
to become a little self-
absorbed, to see everything
through the prism of your
loss and pain. It's impor-
tant to remember that
other people have lives and
problems and that you still
need to be a friend to them.
It can't always be about
you.
I have learned there are
some things I can control. I
had begun neglecting my
health in a big way while
Roy was so ill at the end. I
know he was worried about
me. After he died, I began a
program of aerobic exer-


cise, strength training, yoga
and better diet.
My blood pressure,
which had begun to creep
up, is normal, without
medication. My liver
enzymes that became
elevated are normal, also
without medication. Even
my white count, an indica-
tion of the health of my
immune system, is better
for the first time in years.
I am pleased that I have
been able to accomplish
this during a very difficult
year. I have more goals and
I will continue to work on
them.
I have begun getting out
more. I realized that my
world had narrowed to the
confines of U.S. 1 back and
forth to appointments and
meetings. I try to challenge
myself in little ways, to go
someplace new, meet
someone new. I know I've
lost a lot of confidence and
I'm working to get it back.
Rebuilding a life is not
easy, especially while you're
grieving. I miss Roy so
much, and that pain will be
there for a very long time. I
have begun to feel hope,


though, that I can make a
new life, a different life.
Roy and I talked about it
and I know that's what he
wanted for me. It's just
going to take a bit longer
than he thought. He was
so modest that he didn't
know the hole that his
death would leave in me.

What's yours is mine: Divorce and your IRA


Today's divorce rate for
first marriages is 41
percent. For second
marriages, it is 60 percent.
And for those who might
be brave enough to enter
their third lifetime com-
mitment, the divorce rate
is 73 percent; interesting
statistics, to say the least.
As a financial advisor
with 16 years experience, I
have been witness to many
divorces that involve my
clients. Often among the
largest assets in any
household are the IRAs of
the respective spouses.
It is important to have an
equitable and easy method

to divide and transfer
assets.
Division of retirement
assets can be a sticky
problem when left to the
court system. Yet, once a
decree of divorce or
separate maintenance is
entered, the transfer of IRA
assets from one spouse to
another should not add

further difficulty.
When an interest in an
IRA is to be transferred
from one spouse to anoth-
er under a court decree, the
Internal Revenue Service
has attempted to facilitate
as easy a transfer as
possible. This accommo-
dating position is most
likely in response to the
level of divorce in today's
society.
In general, the trans-
ferred interest in the IRA is
viewed as the recipient-
spouse's property and,
therefore, this conveyance
is acknowledged as tax-
free.


The IRS also offers two
basic transfer methods to
help during such a trying
time.
The most common
method is the direct
transfer. The IRA owner-
spouse may order the IRA
trustee to transfer the
necessary IRA assets
directly to the trustee of a
new or existing IRA in the
name of the recipient-
spouse.
Another alternative is to
transfer the assets the
owner-spouse is entitled to
keep into another IRA,
leave the necessary
amount in the old IRA for
the recipient-spouse and
change the name on this
old IRA to that of the
recipient.
This renaming method
taken to its extreme is the
second alternative recog-
nized by the IRS. If all the
assets in the owner-
spouse's IRA are to be
transferred to the recipi-
ent-spouse, a simple
method of transfer is to
just change the name of
the account on the records
of the financial institution.
Sounds easy enough.
Given the inherent
reporting problems, the 60-
day rule and the some-
times emotional environ-
ment of marriage
dissolution, IRA rollovers
are generally not permit-
ted. Direct transfers by
trustees are most often
recommended.
Of course, the most
viable alternative will
depend on the particular
situation and should be
chosen with the advice of
an attorney and financial
advisor.

Library
From page Al
dren's librarian at the main
library branch inVero Beach.
With five computers that
have word processing pro-
grams and Internet access,
even adults can use the
resource every day.
Computers get the most
usage, said Kittie Buskirk,
library associate in the Gifford
branch.
"We've been very busy with
people using the computers
because it's free," she said.
Most people who know
about the library have heard


about it from a friend, but it's
no secret, she said.
"It's a public library and
everyone is welcome to come
in and use the library, just like
they would at the main one or
the North County Library. If
you want a book that we don't
have, you can place it on hold
and we can get it here for you,"
said Ms. Buskirk.
The library is also equipped
with a copier and fax machine.
The midway location of the
library has benefited some
families already and could do
so even more, she said.
"It really is a perfect halfway
point betweenVero Beach and
Sebastian, between the two


bigger libraries," said Ms.
Buskirk.
"For some people that work
and live in the two different
places, this is a good drop off
and pick up location for
books," she said.
A structured, after-school
program will begin at the Gif-
ford Library on Sept. 8.
From 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., chil-
dren in first through fifth
grades are invited to partici-
pate in crafts, games and sto-
rytelling activities, said Ms.
Buskirk.
Library hours on weekdays
are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. The
library is closed on Sundays.

GYNECOLOGY
14430 US Hwy 1, Suite 104
Sebastian, FL 32958

Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and
Gynecology, Deborah Kaufman, DO, FACOG, has recently opened
a Woman's Healthcare Practice, Innovative Gynecology, in
Sebastian. Innovative Gynecology's mission is to address the spe-
cial needs of women by treating each woman's total being: Body,
Mind, and Spirit.

Whether you're a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, niece,
aunt, teenager, student... You will find that Innovative Gynecology is
the perfect place for a woman's healthcare needs. Dr. Kaufman
understands that a woman's life is marked
by growth and change, and she is com-
mitted to keeping pace with those
changes and challenges that a woman
encounters at every stage of her life. The
personal comfort and well- being of each
patient is Dr. Kaufman's commitment, and
she will work toward one common goal...
your good health. At Innovative
Gynecology, you will be treated with sen-
sitivity, compassion, caring, and the
respect that you deserve. Deborah Kaufman, D.O., FACOG

Dr. Deborah Kaufman's philosophy in her practice of women's med-
icine is based on the belief that the body is capable of making its
own remedies against disease and other toxic conditions when it
has favorable environmental conditions and adequate nutrition.
She utilizes the traditionally accepted physical, pharmacological,
and surgical methods of diagnosis and treatment, while placing
strong emphasis on the importance of encompassing the spirit, in
the process of preventing and healing disease.

Because a positive outlook is the first step in being well, Innovative
Gynecology provides a tranquil and relaxing office environment
that promotes a sense of peace, comfort, and serenity. o

The quintessential beach town


Cocoa Beach
conquers all:
surfing, dining,
fishing, fun
By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
The name "Cocoa Beach"
brings many things to mind:
the NASA space program, a
legendary surfing communi-
ty and the setting for the
long-running TV series, "I
Dream of Jeannie."
But today, the city of Cocoa
Beach offers so much more.
Nestled between the
Atlantic Ocean and the
Banana River Lagoon, the


barrier island of Cocoa
Beach is often referred to as
"the jewel of the Space
Coast."
And it isn't difficult to see
why.
Cocoa Beach is both a resi-
dential community and
tourist destination with a
base population of 12,800,
according to the city of
Cocoa Beach Web site,
www.cityofcocoabeach.com.
But each year that number
reaches as high as 30,000
during the peak tourist sea-
son when thousands flock to
the area to soak up the sun
and spend a week or two
doing some Space Coast
sightseeing.
For the past several

I-
LO


decades, Cocoa Beach has
done an excellent job of pre-
serving its historic down-
town area.
From surf shops and cloth-
ing boutiques to gift stores
and jewelry venues, it's easy
to make a day out of shop-
ping- whether by bicycle or
on foot.
Restaurants, such as the
long-standing Heidelberg
and Mango Tree, or weekend
hot spots, such as Coconuts
on the Beach and the Chili
Pepper Club, cater to crowds
of all ages.
Another draw to the multi-
faceted city is the beautiful
wildlife, fishing opportuni-
ties and unique plant
species found throughout its
waterways.
Cocoa Beach's Thousand
Islands function as a "learn-
ing laboratory" for those
eager to explore the mazes of
mosquito canals and local
ecology, according to the
Thousand Island's Web site,
www.thousand-islands.org.
At any one time, kayakers
can observe pelicans, bottle-
nosed dolphin, manatee,
river otter, rabbit and vari-
ous species of fish through-
out their island journey.
Just around the corner is
another hot spot, known to
house a different type of
species dogs.
Opened in March 2007,
the Lori Wilson Off-Leash
Dog Park is a 32,000-square-
foot paradise for pups and
their owners.
Equipped with benches,
dog toys and obstacles for
both large and small dog-
gies, the park serves regular
attendees, as well as one-
time visitors.
While all of these activities
are significant to the city, it
is the sport of surfing that
has helped shape Cocoa
Beach.
For starters, Ron Jon Surf
Shop, which was opened in
the early 1960s, is a four-
level surf emporium visited
by thousands each year.
And with six miles of
shoreline, there are a num-
ber of places for residents
and tourists to take on the
surf, one of them being the
Cocoa Beach Pier.
Many East Coast surfing
legends, such as Dick Catri
and Kelly Slater, got their
start surfing those very
waves.
More than 80 surfers from
every generation have been
inducted into the city's East
Coast Surfing Hall of Fame,
which doubles as a public
museum.
"We developed a concept
years ago that, as surfers, we
are a society," said Rep. Tony
Sasso, R-Cocoa Beach, who
grew up surfing in the com-
munity and helped concep-
tualize the surf museum. "In
recognizing that, we hope to
keep the door open for the
next generation."

Beach and its many attrac-

look back,


forward
wo weeks into my
60th decade, and 40
years afterWood-
stock, I found it is entirely
possible to go back in time.
No, I didn't inherit H.G.
Wells' time machine.
Anyone with recollection
can revisit past people,
places and things. Conjur-
ing them up is quite simple.
But having a living,
breathing, three-dimen-
sional "memory" material-
ize, if even for a brief
moment, is truly a cosmic
miracle of sorts.
Such a "reappearance"
occurred last week at a
sold-out concert by Crosby,
Stills & Nash at the King
Center in Melbourne. The
peripatetic performers -
true '60s kids in their 60s -
seem to go out on the road
almost yearly, with or
without sometime band
member Neil Young.
But in addition to playing
and singing their folk/rock
music, these guys also
perform magic.
Unlike the David Copper-
fields and Doug Hemmings
of this world who make
elephants and jet planes
seemingly disappear, this
band conjures up an entire
"happening" that unites a
diverse audience of thou-
sands into one, cohesive
spirit. It's quite a trick.
When last I saw them in
2006, David Crosby
Stephen Stills, Graham
Nash and Neil Young were
inWest Palm Beach making
a stop on their "Freedom of
Speech" tour.
It was the most powerful
live music experience I
have ever attended (and I
saw The Beatles when I was
16, which was no small
thing).
CS&N's classic hits were
never sung in better
harmony and Neil Young's
presence imbued an added
layer of energy and cohe-
sion to a group already
known for their tight
harmonies and keen
musicianship.
That concert also made
major political statements
in an excoriation of the
George W. Bush administra-
tion and the war in Iraq.

Director is passionate about his endeavors


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH Long-
time Vero Beach resident
Mark Wygonik is truly a
man for all seasons.
He literally radiates
energy, especially when
discussing arts-related
endeavors or worthy caus-
es.
He recently completed
casting for the musical
"Cabaret," which will likely
become the season block-
buster when it opens Nov.
12 at the Vero Beach The-
atre Guild.
"I live my passion. You
can't live your life afraid,
especially if you're
involved in the arts. You
have to be bold and try,"
Mr. Wygonik said.
Daring to "put yourself
out there for criticism
every time" is what Mr.
Wygonik admires in per-
formers.
In his auditions for
"Cabaret," he sought per-
formers with guts.
"This show really repre-
sents a huge leap forward
in the Theatre Guild's his-
tory because it's such an
important show," Mr.
Wygonik said.
The guild, which will
open its 52nd season, fea-
tures high-caliber shows
by volunteer performers
who are nonetheless capa-
ble and experienced in
theater.
"This is community the-
ater. Nobody is paid to be
in these shows and there
are a lot of selfless people


Mark Wygonik, pictured on
out there who are willing to
give up their time," Mr.
Wygonik said.
Though he modestly
neglected to mention that
he, too, is unpaid for his
casting, directing and myr-
iad theater duties, Mr.
Wygonik brings a profes-
sional level of expertise
and an altruistic spirit to
his endeavors.
"You should give back to
the community as much as
you take from it.
"We live in a very fast-
paced, electronic age
where things change by
the minute. The arts tend
to give a sense of perma-
nence to what is
unknown," he said.
He became involved in
artistic activities while still


in high school.
"I knew I was an artist
and I won an anti-drug
poster contest in the sev-
enth or eighth grade.
"In high school, I decid-
ed I wanted to focus on
commercial art," he said.
After graduation, he
attended a South Florida
school of advertising
design.
"That school taught me
discipline and to focus on
creativity. I also learned to
use all the tools artists can
utilize," he said.
Mr. Wygonik became a
graphic designer with a
Stuart advertising agency.
He later became art direc-
tor for a Caribbean-based
publication.
"I chucked the formal ad


world and went to live in
the Caribbean. Our main
offices were in Grand Turk
and I spent four years trav-
eling and creating really
fun art," Mr. Wygonik said.
A natural entrepreneur,
Mr. Wygonik was able to
reduce his housing costs
there by house-sitting for
wealthy clients.
The multi-dimensional
artist also discovered other
creative outlets.
"We were finding a need
to solidify all the theatrical
opportunities, so we
organized a performing
theater group throughout
the islands," Mr. Wygonik
said.
In the 1980s, the Turks &

the other way.
"The chief minister of the
island was arrested and
there was also a series of
break-ins in the banks," Mr.
Wygonik said.
The islands' climate was
changing and it had nothing
to do with the nearly-perfect
weather.
"I started feeling restless
and was thinking, 'do I really
want to live in a foreign
country?'
"I also realized that I had
stopped producing art and
was having fun being a
beach bum," Mr. Wygonik
said with a laugh.
He returned to Vero Beach
in 1985 for what he thought
would be a "brief stopover."
But he found that in his
absence, the community
had flourished and the arts
community was strongly
emerging.
"Several of us formed an
arts group called l'esprit des
amis, the spirit of friends.
"Our purpose was to pro-
mote arts and raise funds
for scholarships. That put
me on the path of commu-
nity involvement for the
arts," Mr. Wygonik said.


Since that time, he has
become a community
leader and activist involved
in a variety of charitable,
theatrical and cultural
events.
For six years he has served
on the board of the county's
Cultural Council.
He was previously
involved in a local AIDS
support group, which pro-
vided much-needed servic-
es for about 14 years, until
AIDS awareness became
universal and assistance
more readily obtained.
With his business partner,
Chris Foster, Mr. Wygonik
owns an entertainment pro-
duction company that pro-
duces live stage shows and
theatrical workshops.
FW Productions just com-
pleted a nine-month run of
a show called "Jambalaya" at
the renowned Crystal Palace
Casino on Nassau's Cable
Beach.
The company also pro-
duces shows for Native
American-owned casinos in
upstate NewYork.
"It makes us human to
create, encourage and pro-
mote the arts," he said.

Tips on
disaster planning

The Humane Society of
Vero Beach and Indian River
County has published a new
brochure on disaster plan-
ning for pet owners.


Vibe
From page B1
The magnificence of their
performance and the
camaraderie of an audience
of my peers lifted my spirits
to the heavens and I'm not
sure if I drove or floated
home.
Exactly three years later, I
was returning to see them
again.
A few weeks ago, I wrote
about the reasons for my
feelings of special kinship to
that band, particularly to
David Crosby and Graham
Nash.
I will summarize by
saying that David Crosby
was the catalyst that got me
writing for newspapers for
almost 24 years.
Through their collective
musical voices, I found my
own literary one.
In turning 60, I realized I
had come to that stage of
life where there are more
miles behind me than those
yet to be traveled.
But what I more impor-
tantly learned is that there
needs to be a healthy
balance in which we
periodically take retrospec-
tive look back in the rear
view mirror of our life, while
concurrently keeping our
eyes steadily and clearly
focused on the road ahead.
Seeing CS&N in concert
was the perfect incarnation
of that premise. They
performed together as a
band for only the second


The brochure covers topics
including pet identification,
determining if you and your
pets live in a surge zone, pet
supplies needed if someone
must evacuate with their ani-
mals and how to create a pet
first aid kit.
The free brochure can be
obtained by visiting the
Humane Society at 6230 77th
St., Vero Beach, by calling the
shelter at (772) 388-3331, Ext.
18

Try a water class

The North County Aquat-
ics Center is offering Aqua-

and respiratory function and

ter balance and coordina-
tion. Participants benefit

strain on the bones and
joints. Exercise movements
are choreographed to music.
The classes are offered Tues-
day and Thursday, from 10-
11 a.m.
Fee is $4 per class or a
punch card for eight classes
for $28

Medical center offers
outpatient nutrition
counseling

Do you have diabetes,


time when they came
onstage atWoodstock at 4
a.m. in August 1969.
Look back 40 years.
This night in Melbourne,
they played the classic hits
which made them famous,
as well as several other
songs such as "Ruby
Tuesday" by the Rolling
Stones.
The musical hits of the
past still had resonance in
the present.
Though Stephen Stills'
voice was hoarse and weak,
his compatriots Crosby and
Nash were in fine vocal
form. Crosby, especially,
retains the strong, pure
voice of his youth despite
his prior years of drug
abuse.
Stills' virtuosity on the
guitar has, perhaps, grown
with the years and it
brought the cheering crowd
to its feet many times that
night.
They are each music
icons of my generation
through their individual
affiliations with Buffalo
Springfield (Stephen Stills),
the Byrds (David Crosby)
and the Hollies (Graham
Nash) prior to forming
together as CS&N.
Look back in time at them
(and ourselves) without
grey hair, wrinkles and a few
too many pounds. See them
now, physically aging but
ageless in their spirit and
music.
Look ahead, and "see"
them rock on with groups
such as the Rolling Stones,


hypertension or high choles-
terol? Are you interested in
losing weight or just interest-
ed in improving your overall
health?

seling is a one-on-one service

Paul McCartney and other
aging superstars, who still
have the music within them
and need to express it as
much as we need to hear it.
We are older (hopefully
wiser), but still of that
former time and place.
Through music and other
things which jog our
memories we can stop time,
rewind the old tapes and
play them again and again.
We have discovered our
own Einstein-like equation.
It goes like this: Living =
past + memory + present +
future.
Find your own inner song
and don't stop singing it. It's
the best magic there is.

IDont etownNews SUPER BUY$ of the weekIn



Don't believe everything you see printed on coupons


ne of the most
common miscon-
ceptions about
coupons is that the item
you buy must match the
picture that appears on
the face of the coupon.
It's true that you can use
the coupon to purchase
the item that's pictured.
However, you want to pay
close attention to the text
on a coupon, too. After all,
the text contains the
precise information that
the coupon's bar code is
programmed to deliver at
the checkout counter,


which brings us to this
week's tip: forget the
photos, read the fine print.
It's a very common
marketing technique for a
manufacturer to show a
new or more expensive
variety of a product on the
face of a coupon, in the
hope you will buy this new
or more expensive variety.
If you read the coupon,
though, you'll discover
that the offer is good for
"$1 off any (brand) prod-
uct."
Consider a coupon for a
new variety of cold medi-


cine put out by a leading
manufacturer. The coupon
may show the new, multi-
symptom medicine in the
picture, hoping you will
want to try it, but the text
states clearly you can use
the coupon on any medi-
cine from this manufac-
turer.


Learning to distinguish
between what the photo
suggests and the full terms
of the deal the text actually
spells out is a skill that can
really help shoppers,
giving us more freedom to
buy the item we may
prefer versus the variety
shown in the photo.
I recently had a coupon
for a new variety of skin-
care product. It showed a
photo of the lotion and the
text read "$1 off (brand)
lotion, body wash or any
(brand) product." That
wording is key! When I
didn't see a good sale for
the company's lotions or
body wash, I did see a bar
of the same brand of soap
for 99 cents. With my
coupon, it was free.
Brand-name sandwich
meat is an area where it
can pay to read coupon
wording closely. People
often ask me how to save
at the deli counter. It's not
always easy to get dis-
counts on fresh-cut cold
cuts. But many meat


manufacturers sell pre-
packaged deli meats, too,
and there are often
coupons for those.
Look closely at the
wording on these coupons.
While the coupon may
show a boxed or bagged
variety of meat, the
wording often spells out a
wider deal, such as "$1 off
1 package of (brand) sliced
meat, or 1 pound of
(brand) sliced meats at the
deli." These coupons are a
great way to save on fresh-
sliced meats of the same
brand at the deli counter.
Ready for another tip?
This one involves brand
loyalty. While we all have
favorite brands of things,
our brand loyalty can cost
us in the long run if we
aren't shopping smart for
those favorite-brand items
when they're on sale.
Major brands often
engage in what the indus-
try calls "price wars" with
one another. We see this
frequently with items such
as pasta sauce, where

Readers how to save with coupons.

CALL 772-569-6767 TODAY


numerous brands compete
to sell what is essentially
the same product. Brand A
may be cheap one week,
but next week, Brand B
barrels in with an even
lower price.
This works out well for
shoppers who aren't
particularly partial to any
specific brand. But if we
think "I really like Brand A,
and I will always buy it no
matter what," it's great
when Brand A is on sale
for $1.29 a jar and we've
got a 75-cent coupon for
it. But when the sale ends
and Brand A goes back up
to $3.29 ajar, we'll be
paying the price.
If we can let some of our
brand preferences slide a
little bit and fluctuate
along with the sales, we
can save more money in
the long run.
Next week, I'll share one
of the biggest and most
surprising tips with you. It
involves which days of the
week are the least expen-
sive days to shop at the
grocery store. You might
be surprised to learn what
they are.

workshop instructor, writer
and mother of three, never
