.0, HOW WEIRD
IS THAI?!
SEAN MCCARTHY


Spend any time surfing
the Web 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 Reuters.corn: Body
parts sold to kebab stand
Russian police have
arrested three homeless
people suspected of eating
a 25-year-old man they
butchered and selling other
bits of the corpse to a local
kebab house.
Suspicions were raised
when dismembered parts
of a human body were
found near a bus stop in the
outskirts of the Russian city
of Perm, 720 miles east of
Moscow.
Three homeless men with
previous criminal records
were arrested on suspicion
of setting upon a foe with
knives and a hammer
before chopping up his
corpse to eat, local investi-
gators said in a statement.
'After carrying out the
crime, the corpse was
divided up: part was eaten
and part was also sold to a
kiosk selling kebabs and
pies," the prosecutor said.
It was not immediately
clear from the statement if
any of the corpse was sold
to customers.
From rnsnbc. rnsn.corn:
Overdue library books
returned 51 years later
A high school librarian in
Phoenix said a former
student at the school
returned two overdue
books checked out 51 years
ago along with a $1,000
money order to cover the
fines.

INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY-A local physical edu-
cation teacher has found a
way to give back to his
community in a way that
gave himback his life.
Chris "Coach" Harrigan,
a physical education
teacher at Thompson
Magnet Elementary
School in Vero Beach, lost
more than 100 pounds
while doing Zumba
with Jill Price at a CityFit
outdoor fitness camp.
By changing his activity
and eating patterns, Mr.
Harrigan was able to
embrace a healthier
lifestyle. He was also
inspired to work with Ms.
Price to use the program
to teach others how to get
active in an engaging,
energetic exercise regi-
men and raise money at
the same time.
"I got involved with it
about a year and a half
ago, got introduced to Jill
and now I'm using what I
learned to give back to the
community," said Mr.
Harrigan, who is now a
certified Zumba instruc-
tor.
"Since high school, I
had always played sports,
and everybody would
always tell me that I need-
ed to bulk up, beef up. I
got into that eating pat-
tern and I started getting

said.
Faced with orthopedic
problems and other health
issues, he finally decided to
make a change and chose
Zumba because of its vary-

cises set to energetic Latin


quency, but will stop short of
cutting off power, said Mr.
Lee.
In January, customers will
be required to pay 50 percent
of their past due bill, or their
power will be shut off. The

INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY A local homeless
ministry is looking for
donations of clothes and
hygiene products to help
fill gift bags this holiday
season.
The Source, an out-
reach center and
resource center for peo-
ple who are homeless or
close to being homeless
is asking the community
to help them provide
necessary items to mem-
bers of the homeless
community in Indian
River County.
The need for people
requesting assistance at
the outreach center has
more than doubled since
last year. The demo-
graphics of homeless-
ness are spreading as
well, officials said, and
include more young
families.
"The face of homeless-
ness has changed," said
Phil VanVynckt, acting
executive director for
The Source.
"People just like you
and me wake up and
they're fired," said Mr.
VanVynckt.

The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River
County's pet trust seminar can help pet owners
learn how to make arrangements for their animals'
care, should disability or death occur.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
-Preparing for the future is a
good idea, but not many peo-
ple know how to provide care
for their pets in the event they
die or become unable to care
for them.
The Humane Society of
Vero Beach and Indian River
County want to provide pet
owners with the security and
education they need to pre-
pare a future for their pets in
case of death or incapacita-
tion.
To meet this need, a free
seminar on developing pet
trusts will be held at the shel-
ter's adoption and education
center on Dec. 3, from 10 a.m.
to 11 a.m., staff said.
Vero Beach attorney Jen-
nifer Peshke of Stewart,
Evans, Stewart & Emmons,


has experience in developing
pet trusts that will stand in a
court of law and will be avail-
able to answer questions after
the seminar.
"Companion animals are
like members of the family,"
said Keith Hinton, director of
development in a press
release.
"Putting your wishes in
writing is the best way to clari-
fy how you'd like your animals
to be cared for by others when
you are gone," he continued.
"It's not as simple as you
think," Mr. Hinton said of
bequeathing funds to a com-
panion animal in an inter-
view.
"In the state of Florida, pets
are considered property and
cannot be heirs," he said.

ety can help is with a special

those people had been liv-
ing paycheck to paycheck
and lost their job, or no
longer have a home because
of it being foreclosed, he
said.
According to in-house
statistics, 5,604 clients were
served last year, and 786 of
those clients were children.
Diapers are a big com-
modity at the center, and
those and other baby items,
such as wipes, are always
needed, Mr. VanVynckt.


The gift bag drive is
specifically targeting those
homeless who have noth-
ing, said Shirley Reul, mar-
keting director for The
Source.
"You have these home-
less that may live in the
woods and this drive is what
they depend on to live for
the rest of the year," said
Ms. Reul.
The ministry hopes to
have enough items to fill 50
gift bags for the homeless, if
not more, Ms. Reul said.
The need for new clothing

tive grant program, said
Alice Blanco, school district
project specialist.
According to a press
release, more than 140 grant
proposals were reviewed,
but only 71 were recom-
mended for funding.
At the time the grant was
written, Thompson was at
70 percent poverty and Peli-
can Island was at 63 percent
poverty, the two highest lev-


els in the county, said Ms.
Blanco, who wrote the grant.
The grant has the option
of being renewed up to five
years for nearly $2.5 million,
if the federal funding is still
available.
The CCLC programs will
be designed to provide at-
risk students with opportu-
nities for academic and per-
sonal enrichment to
complement the schools'
regular academic programs,
the press release said.
Ms. Blanco said schools

event goes to support the

organization that seeks to

Sponsors needed to


collect toys for foster children


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com

PORT ST. LUCIE -
Local businesses can help
make the holidays bright
for hundreds of children
this year by participating
in one of two popular holi-
day programs coordinated
by United for Families, the
agency that coordinates
and oversees child-welfare
services in St. Lucie, Mar-
tin, Indian River and
Okeechobee counties.
The first program is
called Making Christmas
Bright. The project
recruits larger businesses
and corporations, prima-
rily in St. Lucie County, to
organize company-wide
toy drives for about 20
children each.
"Twenty children is
close to the size of the
number of abused and
neglected children served
by each dependency case
manager," said Christine


Demetriades, chief execu-
tive officer for United for
Families. "We would like
to recruit enough busi-
nesses to give gifts to all of
the children we serve in St.
Lucie County, or about
700 children. "
United for Families
gives a list of children's
first names and their gift
requests to participating
businesses, then picks up
the gifts when the drives
are complete.
"We try to make it as
easy for the businesses as
possible," said Lea Tate,
community resource
coordinator.
United for Families' sec-
ond holiday program is
Adopt a Family, Foster
GoodWill.
The program, now in its
eighth year, matches indi-
vidual foster homes to
businesses, individuals
and social groups
throughout the Treasure
Coast and Okeechobee


County. Currently, there
are about 300 children liv-
ing in foster homes
throughout the four-
county area.
Groups that participate
in the program can meet
their adopted families and
play Santa by bringing
gifts directly to the homes.
The program was
launched in 2001 as a way
to meet the needs of older
children who were being
left out of community toy
drives. It has served more
than 1,800 children. By
participating, businesses
agree to provide two to
three gifts for each foster
child in their adopted
home.
Participating businesses
choose the size of the fam-
ilies they want to adopt
and the location of the
home. Ordinarily, the pro-
gram serves about 100
homes a year.

call (772) 519-1700.

Stop reckless political rhetoric

To the editor:

Stop the reckless political rhetoric.
In the past week, I've heard four comments from com-
munity residents that caused me great concern for their
potentially damaging effects and the safety of our presi-
dent. Let me tell you about them.
I stopped to talk with a couple guys in their 20s and 30s
who were on the beach with metal detectors. They were
looking for treasures the recent high waves may have spit
out on shore. One mentioned being out of work. Quickly,
the discussion turned to politics. Their views popped out
with surprising vehemence.
Without provocation one said, "I don't want to see
Obama assassinated because then they'd name every street
in the country after him like they did last time."
Clearly a reference to Martin Luther King Jr., I was
appalled, and just moved on.
Next, I met a financial advisor at a local networking event
and asked about the state of the economy from his per-
spective. He quickly replied, "I've never in my entire
lifetime been so frightened for the future of this country. I
fear the future."
Having a good friend who has said similar things, but is
addicted to Fox, I asked, "Do you watch a lot of Fox"? He
quickly replied, "How did you know?"
Another really good friend is a staunch Republican. We
know we disagree on politics, and have always agreed to
live and let live. But he let it slip that "Hussein" was not
going to let this or that happen. I stood back and thought,
does it make you feel good to hurt the president by making
fun of his name? Do you really think our president is a
radical Muslim? Clearly, these flippant words uttered in
Vero Beach don't hurt the president, so why do this?
Talking casually with a new acquaintance, he said, "No, I
didn't vote for him, and I didn't vote for Al Sharpton or Jesse
Jackson, either."
So, what are we hearing here? I think we're hearing
revelations of hate, fear, right-wing radicalism and blatant
racism. It's unnecessarily over-the-top and dangerous
political rhetoric.
After Fort Hood, we clearly see that one's words often
lead to one's actions. If that's true, then we need to check
our own political rhetoric for unnecessary inflammability.
We must consider where such unbridled hate and fear will
take us. Even in a country with free elections and the
freedom to say most anything, we don't want to go there.
We need to look deep inside ourselves and stop the
reckless rhetoric.

Statistic's show

Statistics can be boring, but sometimes they tell a dra-
matic story, such as every eight minutes a police officer in
America is assaulted, more than 69,985 assaults on cops
every year.
This should tell us that we allow far too many criminals to
have a second chance, a third chance, a fourth chance. Not
every officer who is assaulted is permanently disabled, but
for those who are, lengthy hospital stays or chronic illnesses
and treatments can be painful and exact a burdensome
financial toll.
The lesson for all of us is that lenient judges and lax parole
boards should be held accountable.

Editor's note: According to the FBI's criminal justice infor-
mation services division, in 2008, 58,792 law enforcement
officers were assaulted across the U.S. The report did not
denote the frequency of the assaults. This was the latest year
for which published data was available.

Shopping locally more important than ever


ast year in this
column, I wrote
about the impor-
tance of buying locally. In
preparing this year's
column, there were a few
things I thought I should
talk about: our half-price
gift certificates (which
make great stocking
stuffers), the numerous
awards we have garnered
over the past year or the
fact that we have man-
aged to not only survive,
but prosper in this dismal
economy.
But then I started
hearing from local
business people. They
were having the same
problem they were last
year: holiday dollars
being spent at big chain
stores instead of their
places.
They asked me to call
attention to this again.
And they're not just

asking for help without
doing something them-
selves.
Several local business
owners and city officials
are joining the national
3/50 project. According to
its Web site, and various
news reports, the 3/50
Project supports small
local businesses and is
committed to "saving the
brick and mortars our
nation is built on."
It asks shoppers to pick
three of their favorite
independently owned
shops or restaurants and
then spend $50 at each of
them once a month.
There could not be a
better month than


December to do this.
According to 3/50
Project statistics, for
every $100 spent in locally
owned stores, $68 returns
to the community
through taxes, payroll and
other expenditures. For
every $100 spent in a
national chain, only $43
stays in the community.
Online shopping? Your
community gets none of
those dollars.
Trish Hickey-Reid,
owner of Blondies on
Ocean, makes a big effort
to carry unique items,
high-end apparel and
accessories for ladies, and
feels very strongly about
using and promoting
local resources.
"Absolutely anything we
can do to keep it local, we
will do it. If the locals are
spending here, they are
supporting us, and in
turn, we should do the


Coping with grief during the


ast week I wrote
about my own plans
for dealing with the
holidays alone.
This week, I talked with
an expert, Jacki Nardone,
director of Treasure Coast
Hospice Counseling
Services. She has worked
with many people dealing
with the loss of a loved
one at holiday time.
She advocates using the
three "c's": choose, com-
municate and compro-
mise, to navigate through
holiday thoughts and
activities.
"Make conscious
choices about what
activities and events you
will participate in this
year," she said. "Don't let
others choose for you.
Give yourself permission
to say yes to what feels
right and no to what does
not."
It's important to decide
if you want to maintain
traditions or start some-
thing new.
"You should plan for
how you want to mark the
loss and not avoid it," she
said. "Think about how
they want to honor that
person. Perhaps it will be
by telling stories, lighting
candles, having a new
ritual or special ornament
or having a moment of
silence. There are many
ways to remember some-
one and bring a positive
focus to grief."
It's also important for
people to communicate
their choices to others,
Ms. Nardone said. "Let
family and friends know
exactly how you feel and
what you want. Difficulties
often arise when we


disguise our true feelings.
Unknown expectations
can lead to disappoint-
ment. Be truthful and
specific about your needs
and wants.
"That's especially true
with families. Each
person's way of handling
grief is different. If you
want to talk about your
loved one, let people
know. They may not
realize that that is what
you want to do."
Compromise is also
vital.
"Open communication
between friends and
families can bring differ-
ent points of view to light
and compromise may be
needed," Ms. Nardone
said.
"Compromise begins by
acknowledging, rather
than dismissing differ-
ences. The best compro-
mise is one that allows for
differences rather than
imposes one person's
ideas on another. Keep in
mind that the goal is not
to agree, but to find a
solution that works for
this year.
"If a holiday dinner is
too painful for a family
member, but others want
to have it, make sure each
point of view is taken into
account. If someone
doesn't want to decorate
the tree, but others do, let
them. If someone can't
attend at all, tell them, 'I


understand you can't be
there, but what can we do
to help you and make you
a part of the holiday?' You
want to decide how you
can honor your loved one
as a family."
Dealing with grief at
holiday time may be
complicated when there
are children involved.
"Kids do need routine
and stability," said Ms.
Nardone. "Perhaps
someone else can step in
and assist a bit. Maybe an
aunt can help and take
some of the burden off
mom or dad. Again, it's
important to realize
limitations and communi-
cate what you can and
cannot do. Then bring
someone in to help and try
to be with people who are
supportive and comfort-
ing."
While grieving may be a
difficult process, Ms.
Nardone believes it can
bring families together.
"Talk to your children
about changes in life,
about life's normal strug-
gles," she says. "We
change schools; we move.
Because grandpa died,
grandma can't do Christ-
mas dinner this year, but
we'll do it at Aunt Sally's.
These are life lessons
about transition and
change.
"It's also important to
remember that kids need
to grieve and that every-
one does it differently.
Everyone must honor each
person's way of grieving
and all of the feelings they
may express. However, if
the person becomes self-
destructive or depressed,
it is time to seek profes-


same," she said.
So once again, I implore
our loyal readers to
patronize local business-
es. When you are heading
out to do your holiday
shopping, don't automati-
cally point your car
towards the big box
stores. Take a moment
and find out where you
can make those same
purchases from a neigh-
bor. I realize it can
sometimes be much more
convenient to just hit the
big box, but most things
that bring quality to our
lives aren't associated
with convenience.
If we all do this, the
positive impact on our
communities will be
enormous and make it a
much happier holiday for

There is no way to short-

who have experienced loss
is often a good way to
make sense of your own
feelings, and to under-

You don't have to grieve
alone, or in silence. There

Classes provide health benefits for seniors


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
VERO BEACH The
Lakes at Pointe West, a sen-
ior living community,
recently introduced an
innovative tai chi wellness
program designed to
improve balance, reduce
falls and alleviate symp-
toms associated with
arthritis.
According to a study
conducted by the National
Center for Injury Preven-
tion and Control, more
than 90 percent of hip frac-
tures among adults ages 65


and older are caused by
falls.
Studies have also consis-
tently shown the most
effective way to prevent
fall-related injuries,
including hip fractures, is
to combine exercise with
other fall prevention
strategies.
Tai chi exercises are
thought to be particularly
effective because they
focus specifically on lower-
body strength and balance.
Wellness coordinator
Dawn Lash, along with
other Senior Living Com-
munities wellness coordi-


nators, completed a tai chi
certification course in July
designed by Paul Lam of
Australia.
Dr. Lam's "Tai Chi for
Arthritis" course empha-
sizes the "sun" style of tai
chi, characterized by delib-
erate, low-impact motions
that increase mobility,
increase strength and pro-
mote better balance.
Ms. Lash continues to
notice improvements in
residents participating in
the new class.
"From improving bal-
ance and overall strength
to reducing arthritic symp-


toms, the benefits of our
tai chi class are unlimited,"
Ms. Lash said.
"Residents actively par-
ticipating in the class are
consistently showing
marked improvement."
The Journal of the Amer-
ican Geriatric Society
found that exercise can
also help boost immunity
and protect against shin-
gles.
Other studies have
linked tai chi to health
improvements in victims
of heart disease, hyperten-
sion, Parkinson's disease,
stroke and sleep depriva-
tion.

Poster contest highlights sun safety


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com

TREASURE COAST -
Students can help raise
awareness about sun safe-
ty and win prizes by enter-
ing the 2010 SunWise with
SHADE poster contest.
The annual contest is a
joint effort by the SHADE
Foundation of America,
WeatherBug Schools and
the Environmental Protec-
tion Agency, to teach chil-
dren ways to protect their
skin and eyes from exces-
sive sun exposure.
Too much sun can lead
to skin cancer, cataracts
and other eye damage, and
immune system suppres-
sion. Sun protection is
especially important for
children, because unpro-
tected exposure in child-
hood increases the
chances of developing the


most dangerous form of
skin cancer, melanoma.
One in 55 children born
in 2005 will develop
melanoma during their
lifetime, almost 30 times
higher than the rate for
people born in 1930.
Being sun wise is espe-
cially important for people
living in the southeast
because of sunny weather,
coastal areas and warm to
temperate climates, which
encourage outdoor activi-
ty.
Depending on the angle,
water can reflect up to a
full 100 percent of UV rays
striking the surface.
The contest due date is
April 7, 2010. Starting this
year, there are two age cat-
egories for poster entries:
kindergarten through third
grade and fourth through
eighth grade.
Students in both cate-


gories must submit hand-
drawn posters on 8.5 by 11
inch pieces of paper.
Entries must be original,
creative, show ways to pre-
vent skin cancer and raise
sun safety awareness and
must be attached to an
official entry form, which
can be found at
www.shadefoundation.org
/programs/poster-con-
test/.

Poster winners receive
state and national prizes,
with the national winner
in the fourth to eighth
grade category receiving a
family trip to Disney World
and a WeatherBug Track-
ing Station for his/her
school with lifetime access
to WeatherBug Achieve.

Peaceful, easy feeling


Rants
From page A6
The truth about driving drunk
In response to the rant regarding witnessing
"many friends and family members who have
gotten DUIs," I feel I must respond. The writer's
complaint is that "those who truly should be
arrested is one thing; those who do not suffer
undue punishment."
Generally, people who drive while under the
influence do so repeatedly whether they get
caught or not. Those who drink "one drink"
and get behind the wheel of a car are breaking
the law if they are over the legal limit. Why
should that person be exempt from the laws
and ensuing punishment?
Let me tell you, driving under the influence
is not a victimless crime. The driver under the
influence may not hurt someone every time
they get behind the wheel, but it only takes one
time to ruin someone's life, if not take an inno-
cent life. I know I've been there; I was hit in a
construction zone at 1:30 p.m. by a drunk driv-
er.
I was only going 20-25 miles an hour. The
result was I had to have emergent surgery to
remove three discs from my neck and now
have a plate in my neck and a cadaver bone in
my neck. I also have multiple hernias in my
thoracic spine, which, at some point, will need
surgery. I lost my job because I couldn't return
to work full-time quickly enough and Florida is
a right-to-work state.
My fingertips are still numb (the accident
was in 2002), I have extremely hyper-reflexes,
and my feet still have areas that are numb. One
of my daughters also had to have surgery as a
result of the accident.
The real kicker is that this was not the other
driver's first, DUI nor was it his last. While wait-
ing trial for hitting me, he was involved in a
DUI accident in another county. Because the
two counties did not have interactive comput-
ers at that time, one didn't know the other had
charges pending.
What punishment did he get? A suspended
license (even though it was already suspended
for a previous DUI), a small amount of jail time
to be served on weekends (so he would not
lose his job), community service, and the stan-
dard classes and AA meetings. Poor fellow. He
had to pay fines, court costs and probation
fees. At least he had a job to have the income to


support his family.
When are people going to learn that one DUI
is one too many? How many more innocent
lives will be ruined or taken because someone
"didn't think" he/she was drunk?
Having a driver's license is a privilege not
right. If you don't take it seriously, you don't
deserve to have a license.
It sounds to me like the writer may have a
problem with alcohol, hence the strong stance
against fighting to keep drunks off the roads.

What happens with
comp plan changes?
I have seen Florida counties go down the
drain for the last 20-plus years because of the
many comp plan changes. These counties will
never learn, because they are still collecting
property tax, even though these homeowners
have vacated and the property foreclosed.
When this happens, the bank or loan people
take over and try to sell the property, but that
can take many months. During this time, the
property has to be maintained, the grass cut,
air conditioner running; the electric and prop-
erty taxes the bank pays.
All the money eventually comes out of our
pockets, because the taxpayers pay the bill
when it's a government loan. Even with a regu-
lar bank loan, the money is coming from the
federal government through bank bailouts,
and that's you, me and our grandchildren.
Then you may see my concern that the coun-
ties are not learning a thing.
If they had to make more substantial cuts in
their budgets because there is no money, they
might stop comp plan amendments that allow
more homes. But they cut library hours and
approve comp plan amendments just like they
did before.
It's like Nat Reed said at a consensus meet-
ing. He fears these developers are going to get
comp plan amendments approved, and put
them in the "ice box" for future use.
I believe they are afraid of next years' Home-
town Democracy or amendment 4, which is on
the 2010 ballot. If approved, voters will be able
to say no to comp plan amendments that will
increase density.
They don't want voters/taxpayers to have the
final say, but taxpayers pay for growth, so why
shouldn't they?
That's what amendment 4 will do, and devel-
opers fear it. Vote for yourself, vote for amend-
ment 4.

William Katsonis, foreground, and Reinhard Wolke both of Vero Beach called the fish-
ing pier under the Barber Bridge the 'perfect place to be' in Vero Beach earlier this fall.
Despite the low number of catches, the pair was just happy to be out over the water.

Holiday bulbs can add a festive look


W th the holidays
almost in full
swing, one of the
most sought-after, novelty
plant items is the amaryllis
bulb.
These colorful plants are
very easy to grow and
bloom with very little effort.
They can be grown inside or
out and are a staple at most
retailers during the holiday
season.
These colorful plants
actually originated in South


America's tropical climate.
The botanical name for the
amaryllis is hippeastrum.
Because of the large,
colorful flowers the plants
produce, this bulb is in large
demand worldwide during
the winter months.
These gorgeous plants
come in a wide variety of
colors, which include red,
white, pink, salmon and
orange. You can also find
many varieties that have
variegated flowers with an

array of colors in a single
bloom. These bulbs will be
available at many retailers
in the coming weeks.
Amaryllis bulbs can be
purchased in bulk package,
as well as in kits, where all
you have to do is unpack the
kit and water the soil.
If you choose to plant
your own, first place the
roots and base of the bulb in
lukewarm water for a
couple of hours. If you get
your bulbs and you are not
ready to plant them right
away, store them in a cool
place at 40 to 50 degrees.
Your fridge is a great place
to store the bulbs until you
are ready to plant them.
Amaryllis bulbs like to be
planted in a good-quality
potting mix, such as Miracle
Gro. Plant the bulb up to the
neck area in the potting mix.
Be gentle with the roots so
you do not damage them.
Firmly pack the soil around
the bulb so it stays securely
in place.
Your new bulbs will do
really well in a warm place
with bright light. The warm


temperatures really make
the bulb grow rapidly and it
will bloom in no time.
Water your new plant
quite sparingly when it is
first sprouting and gradually
increase the amount of
water the plant receives as it
grows. The blooms can last
for several weeks, and if you
plant the bulbs at two- or
three-week intervals, you
can ensure lots of color for
many weeks to come.
Amaryllis bulbs can be
trained to re-flower by
simply cutting off the spent
flower. When you notice the
stem starting to wilt, cut it
back at the base of the bulb
and the flowering process
will start again.
When you walk in to
almost any lawn and garden
center, impatiens will most
likely be the dominant
plant. You will find them in
all colors and sizes from a
small, 4-inch pot all the way
up to 14-inch (or larger)
color bowls. Many stores
also carry six packs and 24
packs.
As a rule of thumb, if you
are going to plant a garden
with impatiens, plant lots of
them. You will be well
rewarded with a garden to
be proud of.
During the holiday
season, impatiens can be
found in red and white color

varieties. They can add real
holiday flair to any garden
or holiday display.
Impatiens will do best if
planted in an area that does
not get full sun all day. If you
plan on putting in impa-
tiens just for the winter, this
won't be quite as critical, as
the plants will endure more
sun during the winter then
the spring and summer.
You will want to use a
good-quality potting soil,
such as Miracle Gro, and
plant them in an area that
has good drainage. If water
stands too long or the soil
stays mucky, impatiens will
develop root rot. They do,
however, need to be kept
evenly moist.
If you let an impatiens
plant dry out too much, the
plant will wilt. Even though
the plant will appear to
recover when you revive it
with water, there is still
damage that has done.
Repeated bouts of drying
out will compromise the
plant quality dramatically
over time.
If you have a sprinkler
system, do not rely on it 100
percent for your flowers.
Always supplement your
watering regime with hand
watering.

Weird
From page Al
said the two Audubon
Society books checked out
in 1959 and the money
order were sent by someone
who wanted to remain
anonymous.
A letter explained the
borrower's family moved to
another state and the books
were mistakenly packed.
The letter said the money
order was to cover fines of 2
cents per day for each book.
That would total about
$745. The extra money was
added in case the rates had
changed.
Bordine said the money
will buy more books, and
the overdue books will be
returned to the shelves.

Tim Conrad clinched the

and nine matches at the
Steam Whistle Brewery.
Facing off against his best
friend in the first all-

Tom Butkin with paper

Organizers said Conrad
dressed as Captain America

seeks 'geezer bandit' in
bank robberies
FBI officials said an
elderly, thin, gray-haired
man nicknamed the "geezer


bandit" is responsible for
holding up five San Diego-
area banks since summer.
Investigators said the
man appears to be in his
70s.
In the most recent
robbery, he approached a
Bank of America teller in La
Jolla, displayed a handgun
and asked for cash. He fled
on foot.
FBI spokesman Darrell
Foxworth said investigators
believe the man is also
responsible for robbing four
other San Diego County
banks since August 28. Law
enforcement officials are
offering $16,000 in rewards
for information that leads to
his arrest and conviction.

'Wonderful Life'


whisks crowd to
golden age of radio
By Jessica Tuggle

VERO BEACH Riverside Theatre
patrons didn't need to be prompted
by flashing applause signs at the end
of "It's AWonderful Life: A Live Radio
Play," on opening night because it
was a hit.
The classic Christmas film "It's A
Wonderful Life," by Frank Capra was
adapted for the stage production by
Joe Landry and is a delight for the
ears and the eyes.
The crowd listened intently as the
performers unfolded scene after
scene of protagonist George Bailey's
life without big set changes or dra-
matic lighting, but rather through
pregnant pauses, varying vocal tones
and expressions, a smorgasbord of
sound effects and a boatload of tal-
ent.
The dynamic cast includes Saman-
tha McKinnon Brown, Warren Kelley,
Ed Romanoff, David Schmittou and
Marguerite Willbanks as the voices of
the various characters in the town of
Bedford Falls. Ken Clifton is musical
director and onstage pianist and Karl
Kern is sound designer and onstage
radio soundman.
Mr. Kelley, like many of the other
actors, showed an impressive range
of acting skills in voicing multiple
characters with very different voices.
He jumped from voicing a sleazy
slumlord, to a bumbling uncle to an
old crotchety neighbor without a
hitch, occasionally carrying on a con-
versation with two of his personas.
In her first Riverside Theatre per-
formance, Ms. McKinnon Brown
excelled at her primary part of Mary
Bailey, effortlessly conveying a tender
and loving spirit that tugged on the
heartstrings of the audience.
The cast ably moved through their

Event gives glimpse into artists' worlds

Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH It's
designed as a fun-filled
and educational day for
art lovers who have
always wanted to see art
being created and, per-
haps, purchase a work
directly from the artist.
But the Vero Beach Art
Club's Art Trail tour of 10
local artist studios set for
Dec. 5 is so much more;
it's a veritable art treas-
ure hunt.
The Art Trail event is
the third one presented
by the Vero Beach Art
Club following the suc-
cess of previous Art
Trails.
This ticketed event,
complete with a direc-


tional map to artists'
home studios, benefits
the club's scholarship
fund for high school
graduates wishing to
study art in college.
Advance tickets are $20
each or two for $35. Day-
of-the-event tickets are
$25 each or $45 for two.
"This is our third year
and the Art Trail has been
growing in popularity.
Everyone enjoys visiting
the artists," said Lillie
Taylor, co-chairwoman of
the event.
As in previous years,
this year's participating
artists offer a wide vari-
ety of artistic mediums.
Alicia Callendar is a
ceramicist working pri-
marily with hand-built
and Raku-fired clay.


Ray McLendon is a sec-
ond-generation "High-
wayman" painter of
Florida landscape scenes
in the school made
famous by his father and
others.
Minakshi De paints in
oils and primarily fea-
tures female subjects, as
well as intricately
designed borders and
elements reminiscent of
lush fabrics.
Rene Guerin is an oil
painter and sculptor
whose work is in the per-
manent collection of the
Vero Beach Museum of
art.
The Conrad Pickel Stu-
dio has created world-
acclaimed stained glass,
mosaic and sculpture
works for religious, secu-


lar and public art proj-
ects for more than 60
years. The studio created
the world's largest
stained glass window of
22,000-square-feet for an
Illinois cemetery.
Barbara Miro Soumar
specializes in fiber art
and sculpture. Her works
are inspired and influ-
enced by nature and the
world around her.
Marjorie Bohler, past
president of the Vero
Beach Art Club, has lived
and studied art national-
ly and internationally.
She is a painter in oils
and watercolors of floral
and still-life subjects.

Week of 11-27-2009
Aries-March 21-April 19
It doesn't matter what other
people around you think, as
long as you are happy with
your own results first. Com-
pete with yourself first. Strive
to perfect your own dreams
and passions. This gives you
the needed power to influ-
ence others and sets strong,
positive forces at work that
ensure everyone's continu-
ing success.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your great, earthly wisdom
always prevails when you lis-
ten to and trust it. Focus your
time, energy and resources
on the important issues. You
will prevail. You know what
you want. Use the rest of the
year to evaluate and set your
goals for next year. You need
a plan. No need to go
around in circles at this
point.

Gemini-May 21 -June 21
Your communication skills
are at an all-time high. Do
you know where you want to
be one year from now? Find
out quickly because time
goes by so fast. Patience is a
virtue that comes from tak-
ing action and living one day
at a time. Deal with every-
thing life throws at you in
positive ways and success is
assured.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
It's good to see you taking
better care of yourself, moon
child. Healthy thinking and
feeling is the foundation for
healthy living. Take an inven-
tory of anything negative
around you and get rid of it.
This makes room for new
and better qualities in life.
You can judge how well this
is working by how happy you
are.

Radio
From page B1
the scene was evident from
the glowing radio "on-air"
and "applause" signs to the
colorful and stylish costum-
ing of the actors in period
clothing and hairstyles.
The cast even performed
two radio commercials with
fun and perky jingles set to
popular Christmas tunes to
provide authenticity to the
radio-style atmosphere.
Mr. Kern was actively
involved in filling the on-air
sound with whistles, sirens,
footsteps, keys and tele-
phone rings, using a wide
array of instruments and
everyday items to provide
the audience with believable
tools to imagine each scene
in perfect clarity, from a
windy snowstorm, to ice
cracking to the finality of a
slammed door.
Also setting the mood of
the scene was Mr. Clifton on
piano, who, with the touch


As this newspaper is going to press...


of a few keys, could lead the
audience to follow the story
during frightening and sus-
penseful moments, light and
happy or romantic scenes.
Mr. Clifton also composed
the score that accompanied


the play.
"It's a Wonderful Life: A
Live Radio Play" will run on
the Stark Mainstage at River-
side Theatre through Dec. 6.
The theater is located at 3250
Riverside Park Drive in Vero


Riverside Theatre's
production of 'It's A
Wonderful Life: A Live
Radio Play,'whisked
audience members
back in time, telling
the story of George
Bailey in a format
reminiscent of old
time radio dramas,
except it was live and
in color. Actors Ed
Romanoff, Samantha

Marguerite Willbanks
and David Schmittou

"It's a nice, one-day

inspiring to see how and
where people create their
art," Ms. Taylor said.


In addition to the enjoy-
ment of meeting artists
and watching them work,
Ms. Taylor noted that the
Art Trail event is a particu-

community at large to the
artists."

Why? At the last minute,

Your actions and facts speak

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Positive change is on the way

could be more deserving.
Enjoy.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
It's your turn at the helm of
the zodiac wheel for the next

Get ready for a 'holiday stroll'


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer

VERO BEACH It's that
holiday time of year again
and if you thought the peri-
od between Thanksgiving
and Hanukkah/Christmas is
just for elbowing your way
through crowded stores to
find that perfect gift, then
think again.
Vero Beach's historic
Downtown, Dine & Design
district (known by "insiders"
as 3-D) is hosting a holiday
stroll event that is not to be
missed on Tuesday, Dec. 1
beginning at 4 p.m. and
continuing through 9 p.m.
with a special photographic
exhibit.
Twenty-four merchants
are participating in the
"stroll," which will include
raffle prizes with tickets sell-
ing for $5 each or five for
$20. Proceeds will benefit
the Cultural Council of Indi-
an River County and Main
StreetVero Beach.
Among those hosting the
holiday fun are: Avanzare
restaurant, 5 Seasons
Acupuncture, Auxiliary
Thrift Shop, Downtown
Beads, Beneduce Realty,
Brenner Collection, Caf6
1901, Decorative arts, Eco-
Colour, French Quarter,
Gallery 14, Gallery RVS, Ltd.,
Health Touch Massage Ther-
apy, Loggia Home & Garden,
Haute Mess, Saigon Sushi
Bar, Southeast Gallery of
Photographic Art, Stickhead
Lacrosse, Sunside Fun, Syn-
ergy Salon, Tiger Lily Studios
& Gallery, Tropic Art &
Frame, Undertow Restau-
rant & Bar and Yami's Ice
Cream.
A treasure hunt-like visit
to merchants might result in
some lucky participant win-
ning a $50 cash prize just for
stopping by some mandato-
ry merchants.
The drawing begins at
6:45 p.m. and attendance is
not necessary to win.
Maps for the stroll will be
handed out at Gallery 14
located at 1911 14th Ave. in


Vero Beach.
Complimentary wine,
refreshments, snacks and
various activities will be
held at each stop to add to
the holiday merriment.
A "Mad Potters Tea Party"
will be held from 5 to 8 p.m.
in the lobby of the Theater
Plaza Building, just north of
State Road 60 on 14th
Avenue.
The Southeast Gallery of
Photographic Art, located at
1446 19th Place, Suite 100
(on the north side of the
eastbound artery of State
Road 60 just west of 14th
Avenue) will host a special
opening wine and cheese
reception of a "Worldwide
Moment of Peace" exhibit
from 7 to 9 p.m.
The exhibit runs through
Dec. 29 and features more
than 1,200 images from 67
countries submitted for a
simultaneous photography
project organized by World-
wide Moment.Org. The non-
profit organization works to
foster peace and interna-
tional cooperation through
photography. This year's
"moment" photographs
were taken on Sept. 9, 2009
at 9:09 a.m. Greenwich
Mean Time, and include a
submission by renowned
peace activist Yoko Ono,


widow of the late Beatle
John Lennon.
In addition, Southeast
Gallery of Photographic Art


supports charities which
work globally, as well as in
the local community.

RAoVEL


Don't get left behind, waving bon voyage to your dream trip


It happened again. After all
of the planning, packing
and making sure every-
thing was in order, someone
was left at the pier waving to
their family and friends. The
ship left without her. Why?
Because she did not have
proper documentation to
board the ship.
Although not a client of
mine, she told me this during
a discussion when she
learned that I sell travel.
Unfortunately, this happens
way too often.
Here is her story: She and
her family decided to cruise
to celebrate a birthday
and/or anniversary. She
planned it many months in


advance. They chose the ship
and sailing date, got friends
and family to join in, paid for
the cruise in full and waited
anxiously for the date to sail.
They arrived at the pier
and were checking-in, and lo
and behold, she did not have
a passport nor a certified
copy of her birth certificate.
She had the only birth
certificate she has ever
known; however, it was
apparently issued by the
hospital, not the state in
which she was born, a very
common practice in some
cities and towns.
We in the industry do not
know what else to say to
clients to help them to


understand and convince
them that they need to have
a passport. I know that
personally I have annoyed
some of my own clients
when they tell me they do
not have a passport, but have
a birth certificate. If they tell
me they have had it since
they were little or that it has
their little foot prints


stamped on it, I tell them to
contact the department of
vital statistics from the state
they were born and request a
new one. The footprints are a
dead give-a-way that it came
from the hospital (even
though they were able to use
this to go through school,
etc). This is not a certified
copy from the state.
This woman was so
disappointed. She and her
husband watched her family
and friends sail away on her
cruise. I really felt bad about
her missing her cruise over
something so avoidable.
I cannot stress enough
how important it is to get a


passport. It is so imperative
to get your passport, but if
you do not have one, you
must be able to prove you are
a U.S. citizen. Those who are
not citizens have green cards
or other forms to identify
themselves.
Currently, the rule is that
you do not need a passport if
you are on a closed-loop
cruise that starts and finishes
in the same U.S. port (i.e.
roundtrip cruise from Port
Canaveral, Miami, Fort
Lauderdale, etc.).
For those who do not have
a passport and want to sail to
Alaska, this is good news. No
passport is needed if you sail
roundtrip from Seattle


instead ofVancouver. More
cruise lines are adding this
itinerary.
Do yourself a favor if you
are planning on traveling out
of the country. Get a pass-
port. It will take up to six
weeks (recently it has been
roughly three to four weeks)
to get one.
If you have any questions
regarding passports and
citizenship documentation
go to www.travel.state.gov.

Golfer celebrates long-awaited victory


They say good things
come to those who
wait. And wait and
wait.
This past weekend, the
long wait for Michelle Wie
finally ended. The once
highly touted teenage
phenom became a winner
on the LPGA Tour for the
first time.
The stage was the
Lorena Ochoa Invitational
in Guadalajara, Mexico.
For the 20-year-old Wie, it
marks the end of a long
awaited ascent, and the
beginning of what many
hope will be a fruitful
career. Her victory could
not have come at a better
time for the LPGA Tour
and her.
We all remember how
she burst onto the scene
as a 15-year-old whose
father bragged how she
would set the world of golf
on fire and take on the
men playing on the PGA
Tour. She may not have
won a PGA Tour event, in
fact she never got close,
but it wasn't for lack of
trying.
I, for one, have been
tough on her. I spoke
tersely about her desire to
play against men. Not
because she wasn't talent-
ed or because she was a
girl, I spoke out because I
felt she needed to walk
before she could run.
Many people shared my
view and felt her life and


GOLF
JAMES
STAMMER


career would be better
served playing the mini-
tours and learning how to
win. She needed season-
ing.
With that said, I was so
very pleased when I
watched her thrust her
arms up triumphantly as
her final stroke found the
bottom of the cup. She
then put her hands to her
mouth as the moment
truly set in. The most
telling sign of her journey
to this moment came in
seeing her peers sur-
rounding the 18th green
cheering her and congrat-
ulating her on her victory.
It tookWie 65 events to
wrap her arms around a
championship trophy. The
moment wasn't lost on
her.
"Wowwww ... never
thought this would feel
THIS great!!!!!" she posted
on her Twitter account.
Some of her peers, who
avoided her in years past,
were there to shower her
with beer on the 18th
green after her winning
putt.
Since becoming a
college student last fall,
Wie has matured a great


deal and has found friends
where she once had none.
Her play and actions at the
Solheim Cup helped win
many fans and players
over, showing them she
had discovered the joy of
playing golf.
She first qualified for a
USGA event at the tender
age of 10. She would play
her first LPGA event at 12.
As she became a teenager,
it seemed her parents, and
eventually she, grew an
attitude of entitlement
when it came to her play.
Last year, that all
seemed to change. She
qualified for the LPGA
Tour and this year began
to show the kind of game
many have been waiting
for.
This past weekend, Wie
beat the best in the
business. Right on her
heels were Paula Creamer,
Kristie Kerr, LPGA rookie
of the year Jijai Shin,
Morgan Pressel, and even
the world's No. 1 lady
golfer, Lorena Ochoa.
Where in the past, she
would falter, Wie instead
stayed steady. It was her
opponents who stumbled.
Her final round 69 was one
of the day's best and gave
her a two-shot win. It is
however, not just a win for
Wie, it's a win for women's
golf.
The LPGA, facing an
economy that is slumping,
has seen many major


sponsors drop out of next
year's events. HavingWie
on the leader board at any
event will bring people
there to watch, and send
those at home in search of
their remote to find the
coverage.
"Literally, when Michelle
Wie is atop the leader
board it's like night and
day and that's star power,"
LPGA spokesman David
Higdon said the day before
Wie's win. "That's all it is.
This is somebody people
want to follow. You see it
in her presence, the way
she walks around. The way
people talk to her."
Wie credits her play at
the Solheim Cup for
getting her going and
teaching how to handle
her nerves when she gets
into contention.
"It just taught me so
much about handling that
situation," Wie said. "And
actually, I wore my Sol-
heim shoes today. So I felt
pretty lucky."
Lucky? Perhaps, or
maybe she finally matured
and ascended that moun-
tain. Here's a toast to her
staying at the top for a
long while.
James Stammer has been
an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He

Great, easy dinners from leftover turkey


Not turkey again? I'm
sure you're hearing
that about now. Try
my recipes, they'll love
them.
If you have a lot of turkey
left, place some stuffing in a
small freezer bag. Do the
same with the gravy. Place
sliced turkey in a large bag;
insert the other bags and
freeze. In this hurried time
you'll have a dinner in no
time. Two great, quick
dinners for those leftovers
are my version of turkey
divan and curry.

MASHED RUTABAGA
Low fat
Serves 6 to 8

Try this recipe. The potato
cuts the sharpness of the
vegetable. One large
rutabaga is enough for any
dinner and leftovers may be
frozen.

1 large rutabaga, peeled
and cut into small chunks
1 large potato, peeled and
cut in medium-size
chunks
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon butter or
butter substitute

It is very difficult to cut a
rutabaga. In the past, I
placed it on a cutting board
and, using a large sturdy
knife and a hammer, I
hammered it in half.
Now, I have a wonderful
hint from one of my readers.
Place the rutabaga in a
plastic supermarket bag,
loosely tie and place on a
microwave-safe rack.
Microwave on high for 5 to
10 minutes. Carefully
remove from microwave
and rinse under hot, then
cold, water. The wax clings
to the bag and the rutabaga,
though not cooked, is easy
to peel and cut.
Cut it in small chunks.
The smaller the chunks the
easier it is to mash. Place in


ROMANCING

a pot with potato, cover
with water and cook until
tender, at least 20 minutes
or more. Drain.
An old-fashioned potato
ricerr" is the best way to
mash it or you can use a
food processor. Believe me,
there is so much fiber in this
root that it's tough to mash.
Season with salt and
pepper, add the butter, mix
and serve.

MOCK TURKEY OR
CHICKEN DIVAN
Regular or low fat

Leftover turkey or chicken
Leftover gravy
Fresh or frozen broccoli
Cooked medium or wide
noodles*

Thaw meat to room
temperature. Thaw gravy,
bring to a boil and whisk to
reconstitute. Add cut up
turkey or chicken and heat
though. Cook broccoli in
small amount salted water.
Serve divan in individual
au-gratin dishes, topping a
serving of noodles with a
couple of broccoli spears,
turkey and gravy.
Beware of egg noodles.
Their first name is egg,
therefore they are high in fat
and cholesterol. Use no-
yolk noodles instead.
Season with salt and
pepper and a little butter
substitute.

LEFTOVER TURKEY
OR CHICKEN CURRY
Serves 4 to 6
Regular or low fat

This curry is a simple


variation of the real thing.
It's a winner and takes
almost no time to prepare.

1/2-cup each, finely
chopped onion and celery
1 tablespoon canola oil or
water
2 cups chicken broth,
homemade or canned
1/2-cup tomato sauce
1/2-cup water
1/2-teaspoonWorcester-
shire sauce
Several sprigs fresh Italian
parsley, chopped, or 1
tablespoon, dried
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon to 1 table-
spoon curry powder,
depending on how strong
a flavor you want
3-4 cups cooked turkey or
chicken, cut up
1/4-cup flour
3-4 cups cooked rice or
noodles
Cooked broccoli spears

Lightly brown vegetables
in oil, adding water, if
necessary.
Add the chicken broth,
reserving 1/2-cup. Add the
tomato sauce and water, a
little salt and pepper,
Worcestershire sauce,
parsley and curry powder.
Cook, covered, about 10
minutes. Add meat and
cook 10 minutes longer.
Shake remaining broth
with flour and add to the
pot, stirring until thickened,
adding more water or flour
and water if necessary.
Serve in individual dishes
or any way you choose. I
place broccoli spears over
rice or noodles, then ladle
on the curry.


CRANBERRY
SURPRISE RELISH
Serves 6-8

One 4-serving package
cranberry or orange-
pineapple gelatin
3/4-cup boiling water
1 large stalk celery,
chopped
1 orange, peeled and
chopped
One 16-ounce can
cranberry sauce, jellied
or
whole berry
1/2-cup chopped
walnuts

Dissolve gelatin in
boiling water, add remain-
