C.W HOW WEIRD
IS THAT?!
SEAN MCCARTHY



S 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 remem-
ber, just because it's
online doesn't mean it's
true!
From reuters.com: UK
ministry shuts down UFO
unit
After more than 50
years of service, Britain's
Ministry of Defense has
shut down its UFO
investigation unit, saying
it could no longer justify
the cost of running the
service.
The ministry said it
found no evidence of a
threat to Britain or proof
of the existence of extra-
terrestrials, despite the
public sending thousands
of reports of UFOs to a
ministry hotline and e-
mail address.
The dedicated UFO
officer who dealt with the
reports has been re-
assigned to another post,
saving 44,000 pounds
($73,000) a year.
From usatoday.com:
When stealing, don't
leave identification
A suspected shoplifter
was found when, after
dropping her purse at the
scene of a crime, she
called police to claim her
bag.
The woman allegedly
set off an anti-theft alarm
as she fled a Family Dollar
store. She dropped her
purse in a parking lot
while being chased. When
she went to the police
station to retrieve her lost
purse, she was promptly

VERO BEACH More
than two decades of law
enforcement criminal
investigations has left
Detective Jim Kelly of the
Vero Beach Police Depart-
ment with quite a few sto-
ries to tell.
For the past several
years, his only experience
writing was in composing
reports for investigations,
but a little prompting from
friends pushed him to take
a stab at a work of fiction.
The main character in
"Lost in Paradise: The Rick
Edwards File," is a police
officer working in Vero
Beach, solving a murder


mystery.
Longtime residents will
recognize some of the
locales mentioned in the
story as actual places in
the Vero Beach communi-
ty in the 1980s, Detective
Kelly said.
"This place used to be a
mostly a vacation destina-
tion, and it's turned into
more of a bedroom com-
munity," Detective Kelly
said.
"The places mentioned
in the book are places that
really did exist, dance
halls, lunch counters, that
I used to go to," he said.
He chose to place his
characters in Vero Beach

said.
"In January, the students
will have all new schedules,
and I expect that the library
will become an integral part
of their routine in the new
semester," Ms. Profeta said.
Because of budget cuts,
employees at the main
county library in downtown
Vero Beach have been split-
ting their hours between the
new Brackett Library and
the main library.
"It's actually a good thing
for us to be sharing like


this," Ms. Fuchs said.
"For my department at
least, I've been doing this
for the past 13 years and
something like this shakes
things up in a good way
because it inspires us to do
new things, operate in a lit-
tle different way, and it real-
ly breathes new life into
everything," she said.
Having to be conscious of
staffing levels at both
library locations has caused
her to be more efficient with
both time and staff.
"Now we're running a
tighter ship and looking for
other ways to get things
done," said Ms. Fuchs.

erated new patrons to the
county library system, Ms.
Fuchs said.
"There are definitely peo-
ple who come into Brackett
who were previously not
using our system, and
would never go all the way
into downtown, but Brack-
ett is there for them now.
"We even have had peo-
ple who I normally see over
at the main library coming
to Brackett, and when they
see me there, they feel guilty
for not going back to the
main library," she said with
a smile.
While the actual times
have yet to be set, Ms. Fuchs
said that beginning in Janu-
ary, she plans on starting a
variety of children's pro-
gramming at Brackett.
Weekly activities are sure
to include toddler and pre-
school story time, after-
school crafts and more.
"On Dec. 18, we are going
to have a special holiday
program at Brackett with
crafts and stories and songs,
and maybe even a visit from
Santa Claus," Ms. Fuchs
said.
The program will begin at
10 a.m. and is recommend-
ed for children from 2 to 8.
Youth and adult activities
will begin in January as well,
with classes such as tai chi
and calligraphy during the
week.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- The growing number of
seniors living on small,
fixed incomes prompted
nonprofits to work togeth-
er to give them a little holi-
day cheer.
The United Way of Indi-
an River County and the
Senior Resource Associa-
tion, along with sponsor
Florida Eye Institute, are
asking community mem-
bers to donate enough
unwrapped gifts to fill a
bus for needy seniors in
the county.


The "Santa for Seniors"
holiday gift drive will run
through Dec. 18, said Jen-
nifer Jones, United Way
director of workplace and
corporate giving.
This is the third year
United Way has held the
drive, Ms. Jones said.
In 2007, 75 seniors were
given care packages. In
2008, that number jumped
to 250. This year's goal is
500 seniors, Ms. Jones said.
Unwrapped gift dona-
tions can be made at any
RBC Bank location or the
United Way offices in
downtown Vero Beach, but
a special, one-day drop-off
location will be at the Indi-


Santa, too


an River Mall on Dec. 12.
Residents can bring gift
items, from 11 a.m. to 4
p.m., at the mall, just out-
side of Macy's, according
to a press release.
Some of the requested
items include personal
hygiene products, robes,
pajamas, toilet bowl clean-
er, sponges, non-perish-
able food, as well as tradi-
tional presents such as
music, large print books or
gift cards to grocery stores.
Many of those who once
worked hard to provide
sweet Christmas memories
for their families have now
grown older and may be
far away from the comfort


of family, said Ms. Jones.
"Some of my fondest
childhood memories are
being with my family dur-
ing the holidays, especially
my grandparents," she
said.
"This is something that
you can do to give back to
them. Sometimes they are
the first to be forgotten at
the holidays," Ms. Jones
said.
A complete wish list of
gift items, including cloth-
ing sizes is available at
www.unitedwayirc.org. For
more information, contact
Ms. Jones at (772) 567-
8900.

Neighbors from his con-
dominium complex testi-
fied they observed Mr. Wil-
son coming and going from
the condo many times a
week, often leaving a car
parked in his designated
space overnight, leaving
them to believe he was still
living there after beginning
his campaign.
Both neighbors, Lois
Quinn and Christine Fos-
ter, said they were not par-
ticularly fond of Mr. Wil-
son, but did not claim to
have a personal vendetta
against him.


Detective Kelly said with a
laugh.
The book was self-pub-
lished by Detective Kelly
and has already sold about
400 copies locally, he said.
"I really didn't know I
possessed (the ability) to
write like this. It wasn't
even remotely on my mind
while I was writing papers
in college," said Detective
Kelly.
Encouragement from
Milt Thomas, another local
author, made him consider
writing two more books
about the police officer.

chase at Vero Beach Book

accuracy.



Learn to share the road

As more traffic is found on all major roads, we all have to
be more aware of people using bike lanes to ride and walk
during all hours of the day.
The white stripe on the side of the road is for bike riders
and pedestrians, if you weren't knowledgable of that fact,
know it now.
The other week, one of the familiar sights on U.S. 1 is a
bike rider and his little Jack Russell terrier riding on the
back of the bike or running along side of it (a service dog).
He was on his way home from getting groceries, blinking
red taillights, reflectors and headlights on in front.
Along comes a woman from behind and hits him, missing
the dog but causing him many internal injuries and road
scrapes on his body, scattering his groceries all over.
When this women finally came back to see what damage
she had done to the (mail box) she hit, she was more con-
cerned about the damage to her car than the victim, his
bike, groceries or dog.
The local sheriff's department, upon arriving, wasn't too
helpful. It was out of their jurisdiction. Only the Florida
Highway Patrol could handle this case because it happened
on U.S. 1.
Maybe it's time for all of us to wake up to what kind of
driving skills we need to improve, or give up our privilege to
drive before someone else is hurt or killed

Still unemployed?

The government watchdog overseeing economic stimu-
lus spending says the White House was far too quick to take
credit for saving or creating jobs.
Earl Devaney, whose agency collected and released the
data, said theWhite House claims are flawed and there is no
way to justify job creation.
President Obama trumpeted job figures, saying they
prove that the administration is on track to save or create
3.5 million jobs by the end of next year, but the unemploy-
ment rate has risen to record highs.

Government vs. health

When politicians overrule doctors in matters of health
care, the results can be a giant step backward, as shown by
the government agency called the U.S. Preventative Ser-
vices Task Force, which has issued guidelines concerning
mammograms.
The resulting confusion about the risks of breast cancer
has been widely criticized by many, but especially by breast
cancer survivors who recognize they have conquered one of
life's most stressful experiences.

Healthcare means tax increases

When bureaucrats discuss their plans for the government
to get more involved in the country's health care, they often
say everyone should "contribute their fair share" which is
code for "tax increases."
The public is becoming increasingly skeptical because
the cost for a government take-over is estimated in the
range of $1 trillion to $1.5 trillion. Any politician who would
admit to that number would be toast.

A parental reminder

To people who mistreat their children: Just remember,
one day they will be grown and they will remember what
you did to them. If they are to young to remember, they will
feel it.

Buy out of pay off?

Why am I concluding that the AARP support was also
"bought off" or "paid off'?"
It seems to me the Sharpton and Jackson blackmail tactic
of "race-baiting" is being copied by the Democrats and now
employed as "legislative blackmail."
Support the plan and we (the Democratic Congress) will
throw money at you by enacting legislation favorable to
AARP.

How to find, keep track of file names


This week, I thought we
would talk about how
everything in the
computer is connected.
By connected, I don't
mean by wires and other
mechanical means, but
internally, through the
computer's filing system.
Often, I hear people say a
particular file (picture or
text) "is in my word proces-
sor" or "it's in my e-mail
program." That implies the
file in question can be
accessed only with that
particular program. Not so.
Let me explain. Each
program on your computer
is capable of opening
different types of files.
For instance, word
processors, such as
Microsoft Word or Works
are for working with text
files, while photo editors,
such as Paint Shop Pro and
Photoshop, work with
pictures.
The files themselves are
not stored within the
program they are stored
somewhere on the hard
drive available to any
program capable of work-
ing with them. That means
you can share files with
many other programs.


r


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


All you really need to
know is where on your hard
drive the files really live.
"c:\documents and
settings\owner\my docu-
ments\filename.doc" -
This is an example of a
typical file name, complete
with its path on the hard
drive. The path tells how to
get to a file's location on the
hard drive.
Let's take a closer look:
The c: \ indicates what drive
the file is stored on. Each
disk drive, your floppy drive
(typically a), your hard drive
(c) and your CD-ROM
(typically d) will have a
letter assigned to it. This is
how to tell the computer
what drive you are working
with.
The next part of our path,
"documents and settings\",
is a folder or directory.
Just like the manila
folders you use in a file
cabinet keep files organ-
ized, directories on your


computer organize your
computer files. Each
directory is separated by a
back slash (\) and you can
have directories within
directories.
In our example, the "my
documents" folder is in the
"owner" folder, which is in
the "documents and
settings" folder, which is on
the c drive.
The last part of our path is
the actual file name.
A typical file name comes
in two parts, the name,
separated by a dot and the
extension. The name is what
we call the file when we
saved it (a fairly important
thing to note when saving).
And the extension tells the
computer what kind of file it
is so it knows what kind of
program can open it.
Once you know the path
to a particular file, you can
access it from most of your
favorite programs.
For instance, say you got a
picture e-mailed to you and
you want to use that picture
in a letter you are writing
with your word processor.
The first step in getting
the picture into your letter
happens when you save the
picture from e-mail. Note


the full path and file name
when you save it and you
can access it any time.
When you are ready to
import your picture, use the
insert menu (typical on
most word processors) to
load your picture. When the
dialogue box comes up
asking what file you want to
insert, type in the file's full
path and filename. Start
with the drive letter, end
with the file name (dot)
extension, separate your
directories with back
slashes and then click OK.
You should have your
picture inserted into your
letter.
As you can see, the path
and file name is enormously
important. So often I hear,
"it's on my hard drive, but I
don't know where" or "that
file is in my word proces-
sor."
If you pay attention to
what name and directory
the file is saved under when
you save it, you won't have
this problem.

De-stressing the holidays


The holidays are
supposed to be times
of joy, but for too
many of us, they have
become so stressful that we
dread the reminders the
holidays are coming.
Difficult economic times
have only added to the
worry about the things we
need to and want to do.
While some holiday
stress may be inevitable,
there are some "stress-
busters" that can help you
keep the stress level down
so that you can enjoy the
holidays more.
We all play an expecta-
tions game. We want the
holidays to be Hallmark
memories and Kodak
moments, and the reality is
that human beings don't
always act and react the
way we'd like them to.
Experts at the Mayo
Clinic suggest several
things we can do to make
the stress level manageable
and keep us from getting
overwhelmed and
depressed.
Acknowledge your
feelings: If you are grieving,
it's normal to feel sad. This
year, I'll be moving, so I'll
be busy, but there's a layer
of sadness at leaving the
home we shared. I know
that this will be a difficult
time for me and I am
scaling back. I don't plan to
send a lot of cards and give
a lot of gifts this year; I'm
not up to it.


Don't force yourself to be
happy. You may feel better
if you seek support from
friends, the community,
religious organizations or
charities that help others.
Helping others often makes
us forget our own problems
and put them in perspec-
tive.
Be realistic: As families
change and grow, traditions
may change, as well. If your
entire family can't be
together anymore, invite
friends to join you for the
day. Share phone calls, e-
mails and photographs to
stay close to family that's
far away.
Set differences aside:
This is not a good time to
discuss long-standing
problems. Everyone is
stressed and everyone
should try to ignore small
problems.
Stick to a budget: Before
you shop, decide how
much you can afford to
spend on gifts and enter-
taining; budget for decora-
tions and food, as well. Give
homemade gifts, narrow
your list and agree only to
buy gifts for the children.
Try a family gift exchange,
where each person buys for


one other person. Maybe
you could all donate gift
money to a worthy cause. If
you get into debt, you'll be
dealing with the bills and
the stress for months to
come.
If you shop early, you can
spread the spending
throughout the year and get
things on sale. You can give
pretty IOUs that promise
gifts of yourself; walking a
friend's dog, babysitting
and other things that don't
cost money but are from
the heart.
Children can give them to
parents and parents to kids:
a day in the park, a trip to
the zoo or the beach, a
special day just for that
child.
Plan ahead: Get a plan
of action going before the
holidays start. Decide when
you'll shop, when you'll
cook, when you'll entertain.
Plan menus and make
shopping lists to cut down
on runs to the store at the
busiest times.
Learn to say no: Only
agree to do the things you
really want to do, unless it's
impossible to say no, like to
your boss! Don't feel guilty
about saying no.
Forget being perfect:
Your domestic diva should
take a hike! So the cake falls!
The kids act up! Your
mother-in-law criticizes
everything! You do the best
you can. Kids will remem-
ber happy times, not


perfect cakes. Laugh about
it and make a funny story.
Maybe let them help bake a
new one or make easy-bake
cookies, instead.
Don't try to do it all,
either. Have guests bring a
dish or decide not to make
everything from scratch.
Older kids can help, too.
If you asked a lot of adults
what they remember about
the holidays, it usually
comes down to family, both
good and bad. What people
remember are experiences.
Maybe you won't find the
"perfect" gifts or cook a
"perfect" meal, but if you
enjoy the holidays, taking
pleasure in the things you
do and not worrying about
the things you can't do, your
family will enjoy them, too.

available now in the store.
The recipes in the book
are organized into sections
based on the time it takes to
prepare and create them.
Part of what makes the
book so special is that it
caters to the desire of many
Americans to eat healthy
that seems to compete with
busy schedules, Ms.
Grabenbauer said.
"We have hectic sched-
ules and we want to eat well,
and we want our kids to be
eating healthy food. Emeril's
signature style, with recipes
that fit our lifestyle, is really
what sets this book apart,"
she said.
In an interview, Mr.
Lagasse explained that put-
ting together the book for
people who don't have as
much time to spend in the
kitchen was a "personal
challenge" for him.
"One day I looked around
and realized that everyone I
knew seemed to be rushing
from point A to point B, try-
ing to squeeze dinnertime
into their very busy days,"
Mr. Lagasse said.

and tips on how to get a

Beach," Mr. Foster said.
California, Texas and
New York are know for
being the top locations for
soccer tournaments, but
now Vero Beach is starting
to make it on the national
scene, he said.
"In the soccer world, it's
known as a prestigious
soccer tournament, and
they were looking for a
new venue, and I knew we
would meet the require-
ments, so it was just a mat-
ter of getting in touch with
them and showing them
the facility," Mr. Foster
said.
Indian River Soccer
Association is the largest
youth soccer association
in the county, with more
than 1,000 children and


adults registered for soccer
programs.
Vero Beach's centralized
location in the state and
proximity to Orlando, West
Palm Beach and Mel-
bourne airports were a
major factor in the tourna-
ment official's decision, as
were the actual soccer
fields themselves.
The eight fields at the
Hobart Soccer Complex
are all equipped with
lights and electronic
scoreboards, a big positive
for U.S. Club Soccer, he
said.
Many times in tourna-
ments, teams have to trav-
el from field to field by car
to get to their next game,
but with eight fields adja-
cent to each other, travel
will be very minimal, Mr.
Foster said.
Four extra fields will be
created using the polo
fields at Pointe West to
accommodate all the
teams expected to partici-
pate.
"That's anywhere from
120 to 145 teams coming
to play with about 15 to 20
players on a team, plus
their mums and dads who
usually stay at area hotels,


that's maybe 2,000 to 3,000
people coming to Vero
Beach for that weekend,"
he said.
The economic impact is
anticipated to be positive,
with visitors staying in
hotels and eating at local
restaurants, said Susan
Hunt, the Indian River
County Chamber of Com-
merce director of tourism.
"Working with U.S. Club
Soccer and the local spots
community to bring over
1,000 room nights to our
location is so important.
The local economic
impact of the event will be
more than $1 million dur-
ing the three day event,"
Ms. Hunt said in a press
release.
"The beauty of it all is
that this type of tourna-
ment is very dedicated,"
Mr. Foster said.
If the first tournament
experience is a positive
one, U.S. Club Soccer is
willing to continue the
relationship.
"They would want it to
become a permanent site,
and they'd be looking at
doing it again the next
year, and the next, for five
to 10 years," he said.

It's getting to the time when
many of us will be decorat-
ing our trees for the
holidays.
A great alternative to an
artificial tree and/or a live tree
is a Norfolk Island pine. They
are available at most retailers
and come in several sizes.
Some even come already
decorated and ready to go.
The Norfolk Island pine
does require a well-lit area of
your home if you are going to
keep it indoors for an
extended period of time.
These trees have distinctly
flat branches and short soft
needles. They thrive in humid
environments, which makes
them right at home in Florida.
The soil conditions for this
tree should be on the moist
side.
A sure sign the tree is not
getting enough moisture is
when you start to see a lot of
dead lower branches. The
Norfolk pine does not
regenerate its lost limbs or
needles, so it is important to
stay on a steady watering
schedule. If the tree is over
watered, you will begin to see


GARDEN
NOOK -
JOE ZELENAK



areas of bright yellow needles
that fall off easily.
To avoid this condition, be
sure the plant is not standing
in water. If you purchase a
tree with foil wrap on it, be
sure to slit the foil so water
can drain from the pot. It is
not recommended the trees
be pruned, as the plant can
loose its symmetrical shape.
If you are one of the many
Americans who are buying a
live tree this year, here are a
few tips to help you with the
process.
Since live trees in our area
are trucked very long dis-
tances to their destination,
picking out the freshest
looking tree is extremely
important. Make sure your
tree is green with minimal
brown branches. Check the
needles of the tree and be
sure that they are flexible and


do not fall off when you brush
the branches.
Another good check is to
bounce the tree lightly on the
cut end to see how aggres-
sively the leaves fall off the
branches. Avoid trees that
shed leaves aggressively with
this procedure.
Another point to consider is
the location the tree will be
placed. Be sure to get accu-
rate measurements of the
area so you can get a tree that
is tailored to its location.
You have finally picked out
your prize tree so what's next?
The most important task is to
get your tree in its stand and
located where it will spend
the remainder of the season.
If it has not been done at the
place of purchase, cut off
about an inch from the
bottom the tree before
mounting in the stand. This
will greatly aid the tree in
absorbing water.
Once the tree is mounted,
be sure to add water immedi-
ately. The sooner all this is
done the better. Now it's time
to decorate your new tree
with all the goodies you have
been collecting the past


couple of weeks. Use caution
when using lights, especially
if you use the larger C-7 type
lights.
As long as the tree remains
moist and the needles pliable,
the tree will not be a huge fire
hazard. As the tree ages and
you get near the end of the
season, more caution is
advised since the tree
structure will become drier in
nature. The new LED lights
are the most energy efficient
and safest alternative. They
are more expensive but the
energy savings will quickly
help them pay for themselves!
Now that all the work is
done, the time has come to sit
back with your favorite
beverage and enjoy your
masterpiece!
That's all for this week's
column and I hope you
enjoyed it. I will see you next
week with more great
gardening tips.

Palm Bay Doctor provides the 'lift' of life


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com

PALM BAY- Before they see
him, many of the patients of
Dr. Frank Filiberto share one
thing in common: they're not
happy with the person they
see in the mirror.
Dr. Filiberto, 60, performs
plastic and cosmetic surgery,
including facelifts, breast aug-
mentation, liposuction and
other procedures that help
people look their best. He has
been in business for 30 years.
"'I want to look like I feel,' is
probably the most common
thing I hear," he said. "I think
the main reason people
choose to have a procedure -
excluding breast augmenta-
tion is the person you see in
the mirror is not the person
you feel like."
Dr. Filiberto said facelifts
are the most common proce-
dure that he performs.
Surprisingly, he said about 20
percent of men these days
have facelifts.
"The number is increasing
because of the job market,"
Dr. Filiberto said. For
instance, "a 50-year-old man
who lost his job and wants to
get back into the market
needs to look younger."
In his Palm Bay office, Dr.
Filiberto performs traditional
facelifts, mostly for senior citi-
zens. In an Orlando office, he
and other doctors perform the


"Lifestyle Lift," which is adver-
tised on TV, addresses the
first signs of aging in the
neck and jowl areas and is
done mostly for people age 40
to 60.
"I do 50 facelifts a month in
Orlando" Dr. Filiberto said.
"Practice really does make
perfect."
Years ago, some facelifts
could take four hours to com-
plete, he said.
"Now, they can be done in
one hour, and we use the
same local anesthesia that
dentists use," he said. "In one
hour, you're in and you're
out."
Dr. Filiberto said people
who are considering having
liposuction should view it as a
sculpting and not a weight
reduction apparatus.
The human body is pro-
grammed to have a certain
number of fat cells, so while
surgery can remove fat from
the stomach or other parts,
the fat might later be redis-
tributed to a patient's arms,
legs or other areas, he said.
Eating healthy and exercis-
ing can help decrease the
amount of such fat redistribu-
tion, Dr. Filiberto said.
He said overall, the cost of
cosmetic procedures is deter-
mined by the market and
demographics.
"You should be going to the
people who are experienced
and know how to do this type

of work. That's what you'll get
from us," he said.
Dr. Filiberto graduated from
St. John's University in New
York, completed medical
school at the Universidad
Autonoma de Guadalajara and
fulfilled his surgical residency
at the University of Miami,
according to the Web site,
www. lifestyleliftmaitland. corn/
doctors/filiberto. htm.
He is a fellow of the
American Academy of
Otolaryngology-Head Neck
Surgery.
Dr. Filiberto's roots in Palm
Bay run deep, having served
as the city's mayor from 1987
to 1990. The former amateur
boxer also is the founder of


the Palm Bay Boxing Club.
This boxing program serves
as another way for Dr.
Filiberto to uplift many people.
"Every lower socio-econom-
ic class in our country has
used boxing as a way to rise
up from the streets," he said.
"Everything I do is a vehicle
to boxing. It affords me to
give my time to a program
that I really believe helps the
community."
Dr. Filiberto's Palm Bay
office is at 2105 Palm Bay
Road, Suite 6W. It is open
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Friday.

VERO BEACH They're
not like the "eggplant that
ate Chicago" of 1960s
music fame, but these
fruits and veggies aren't
likely to be found in your
refrigerator, either.
"FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
Sculpture by Luis Montoya
and Leslie Ortiz" will open
in exhibit Dec. 19 in the
Vero Beach Museum of
Art's Alice and Jim Beck-
with Sculpture Park.
There is no admission to
view this large-scale depic-
tion of the best of the basic
fruit and vegetable food
groups.
The size and realism of
these luscious-looking


pieces might initially evoke
a silly sense of a garden on
steroids.
But though there is a
somewhat humorous
aspect to seeing giant
"killer tomatoes" in pati-
nated (colored) bronze
depiction 10-feet high,
there are also stunningly
beautiful textures, colors
and realism to the forms.
Though the works are of
exaggerated size, the intent
is to remind viewers of the
lavish colors and forms of
the food they eat.
"It's bringing the viewers'
eyes to everyday food that
they don't really look at.
These works show the sen-
sual aspects of fruits and
vegetables," Ms. Ortiz said.
Mr. Montoya and Ms.


Ortiz have collaborated
since 1995 in their West
Palm Beach
studio/foundry, creating
award-winning sculptures
that are exhibited through-
out the world.
Their works are in public
collections in museums in
Spain, West Palm Beach,
Boca Raton, Palm Beach
and Wisconsin.
The pair has been
awarded special commis-
sions by the Society of Four
Arts in Palm Beach; the
Palm Beach International
Airport in West Palm
Beach; the Tokyo/Fuji Art
Museum in Japan and oth-
ers.
Mr. Montoya received his
undergraduate and gradu-
ate degrees in fine arts at


the School of Fine Arts of
San Fernando in Madrid,
Spain, and has done inde-
pendent and post-gradu-
ate study in Florence, Italy,
London, New York and
Kent State University in
Ohio.
Ms. Ortiz studied at the
Rijksakademie van
Beeldende Kunsten in
Amsterdam and received a
bachelor of fine arts degree
from Boston University.
"We're two minds work-
ing together in collabora-
tion and it's an enjoyable
process because we trust
and respect each other,"
Ms. Ortiz said.

Engineer's retirement pastime is writing


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH One might sup-
pose that an octogenarian retired
from a corporate engineering career
and military service as a pilot in
World War II would leisurely sit back
to enjoy the fruits of his labors.
But at age 87, Vero Beach resident
Arnold Beckhardt has found a new
career as an author of books featur-
ing mystery, international politics
and intrigue.
The protagonist of his latest book
"Black Gold" is Roy Neely, who Mr.
Beckhardt refers to as his "alter ego."
Neely, a 65-year-old widower, for-
mer Air Force fighter pilot in Viet-
nam, former CIA surveillance train-


er and retired
FBI psycholo-
gist is, like his
creator, Mr.
Beckhardt, too
busy to retire to
an inactive life.
Although Mr.
Beckhardt had
done technical
writing during
his profession-


al career, he Beckhardt
hadn't made a
foray into fiction until he took a cre-
ative writing course at the library.
"That got me started. I took the
course from my friend who is a
retired New York City detective who
is now an author.


"I did a family genealogical histo-
ry for my grandson and the next
thing I know, I started writing from
scratch and creating a character and
plots," Mr. Beckhardt said.
The character of Roy Neely was
introduced to readers with the 2007
publication of "Turnaround" and
returned in 2008 in "Goering's Gold"
which had roots in post-war Berlin.
"He's been in all three of my
books," Mr. Beckhardt said.
Neely will undoubtedly return in a
new book, which is now in the
works concerning the drug wars in
Mexico.
A prolific writer, Mr. Beckhardt
completes new volumes every year

Your strong belief in doing

despite painstaking
research that is needed to
lend authenticity to stories
based on actual events.
"Writing is my greatest
pleasure these days since
I'm too old to play golf
every day," Mr. Beckhardt
said.
He and his wife, Greta,
have been beachside resi-
dents of Vero Beach since
1972 when they became
seasonal residents. At that
time, Mr. Beckhardt was
working at Cape Canaveral
on the Saturn Apollo pro-
gram.
"We found Vero Beach.
The south building of the
Village Spires was being
constructed in 1972 and we
became snowbirds.
"When I retired from IBM
in 1985, Vero Beach became
our full-time home," Mr.
Beckhardt said.
He and another IBM
retiree living in the area
founded a Vero Beach-
based software company,
but when his associate
died, Mr. Beckhardt opted
not to continue the con-
stant traveling the business
required and he sold it.
With his keen awareness
and knowledge of national
and world events through
his own research, as well as
through former colleagues
who worked for the CIA,
Mr. Beckhardt is able to
weave compelling stories
based on factual situations.
"All three of my books got
started by some national or
international event that
piques my interest and the
research into it is the most
fun," Mr. Beckhardt said.
Using the Internet,
library, personal contacts
and occasional travel, Mr.
Beckhardt creates a factual-
ly correct backdrop for his
fictional tales.
"I had some very good
friends in Washington,
D.C., where I had lived who
worked for the CIA. From
that and a lot of research, I

rate as I can," Mr. Beck-
hardt said.
He said the historical
background for "Black
Gold" is the large-scale oil
development in the Caspi-
an energy corridor. Oil pro-
duction in Azerbaijan start-
ed in the late 19th century
and Russia was the domi-
nant "player" until very
recently.
The construction of the
Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan
pipeline by a consortium
led by British Petroleum
from Azerbaijan to Turkey
changed the dynamics of
the relationships between
those who have oil and
those who need it.
In "Black Gold," Neely is
convinced by his friend,
Eric Holloway, CIA opera-
tions chief, to take on Pro-
ject Sinbad, a sensitive
assignment to protect the
flow of oil from the Caspian
Sea to Europe. Neely
uncovers a plot to disrupt
the pipeline and an explo-
sion sets in motion a sur-
prise reversal of Russian
and British Petroleum
interests in the region.
With Mr. Beckhardt's
fourth novel underway,
which also features inter-
national intrigue and
undercover operations, one
is reminded of Ian Flem-
ing's now iconic protago-
nist, British spy James
Bond, who was featured in
12 novels and subsequent
movies. Perhaps Roy
Neely's escapades will
prompt similar interest.
"Black Gold" is a 285-
page trade paperback pub-
lished by Outskirts Press. It
is currently available at the
Vero Beach Book Center
located at 2145 Indian River
Boulevard inVero Beach.
Mr. Beckhardt will
appear for a book signing
there on Jan. 14, 2010 at 7
p.m.

ties. If your heart isn't in it,
don't do it. The upcoming
holidays will be filled with
many opportunities to share
your love and glad tidings.
Give freely and spirit will pour
out the well of happiness
back on you.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct.22
The new learning about life
this year is paying off. Stress
has gone way down. You
worry less. You are more
relaxed and centered. The list
goes on. Your vision quest is
highly focused and you make
wise choices. It doesn't get
much better than this. Thanks
for teaching us all about bal-
ance, peace, love and light.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Kind words of assurance to
others in need go a long way
toward building cooperation
when life's challenges are
upon you. You are never
alone. Your great heart is an
open channel for the spirit
world to flood you with grace


and guidance. Just be open to
and ask for it and all chal-
lenges will be met with ease.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Do something really creative
for yourself as a reward for all
your hard work and tenacity.
Let your patience, trust and
faith in the universe continue
to guide you. It is your true,
inner light. When not sure,
wait. The truth will always be
revealed. Today is all we have.
Make today the best day of
your life.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You live life with such a won-
derful spirit of love. When you
turn within and listen closely
for wise answers to life's chal-
lenges, you are at your best.
The joy in your beautiful heart
is a treasure. This wonderful
heritage will soon be multi-
plied for all in the holidays to
come from your sweet grace
and giving. Thanks sweet
soul.

Aquarius-Jan 20-Feb. 18
You have so much motiva-
tion. It stems from your pas-
sion and innovative ideas. No


one has more. You were born
with a great gift. You don't
stay down for long. This fire
and grit in your heart and soul
are the great tools moving
you forward to your great pur-
pose. You are a marathon
runner. We all cheer you on to
victory.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
There are three strong rea-
sons for your success. You are
a risk taker. You have strong
faith in life. You have great
love of family and friends. No
one does it better. This is why
spirit made you the last sign.
To tie up loose ends on the
important stuff, so we can all
continue on to "new begin-
nings." Thanks from everyone.

For Christmas dinner, try


fresh ham, amazing appetizers


Hello, smart shoppers.
For Christmas, I
never repeat the
turkey dinner. Recipes I
have given for rib roast,
Virginia ham, lasagna, etc.
are great choices.
This week's dinner: Fresh
ham. Everyone knows about
smoked ham, but not fresh
ham. It's not always avail-
able in local markets. Fresh
ham is ham that has not
been smoked or cured. It's
much less expensive than
loin of pork and the meat is
lean and delicious.
Start the feast with your
choice of two great appetiz-
ers.
Enjoy. See you next week!

ROASTED
VEGETABLE TART
(NIB)
Serves 6-8

This recipe is compli-
ments of Carapelli Olive Oil
company, famous in
Florence, Italy, since 1893.
It's a relatively easy and
excellent appetizer.

4 plum tomatoes (Roma),
coarsely chopped
1 small eggplant,
unpeeled and cubed
1 medium red bell pepper
(seeded, cut in strips that
are 1/2-inch wide and 1
inch long)
1 large zucchini, cut
lengthwise in quarters
and then into 1/4-inch
slices
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4-cup extra virgin olive
oil, divided
1/2-teaspoon salt
1/8-teaspoon ground
black pepper
Cornmeal
Half of 9-ounce package
refrigerated pie crust*
2 tablespoons grated
Parmesan or Romano
cheese

*Note: Use piecrust sold
boxed in sheets, not formed
in a tin. It can be found in
the dairy section.
Heat oven to 450 degrees.
In bowl, toss all vegeta-

bles with garlic, 3 table-
spoons olive oil, salt and
pepper. Place vegetables in
a large pan. Bake 30 min-
utes until golden brown.
Place piecrust on a pan
which has been lightly
sprinkled with cornmeal.
Place roasted vegetables
onto crust, leaving a 2-inch
border. Fold the dough up
(pleating as necessary) to
partially cover the filling
around the round edges.
Brush crust with remaining
oil.
Reduce oven temperature
to 425-degrees. Bake 15-20
minutes until crust is
golden brown. Sprinkle with
cheese, cut into wedges and
serve.

SPINACH-FETA AIOLI
ON CROSTINI (NIB)
8-10 appetizers

Aioli is garlic mayonnaise
that originated in southern
France. This appetizer is
made like bruschetto. The
end result is superb and
may be made lower in fat by
using low-fat creamed
spinach and low-fat or fat-
free mayonnaise.

1 9-ounce package
creamed spinach
3/4-cup mayonnaise
1 4-ounce package
crumbled feta cheese
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/4-teaspoon ground red
pepper
1 loaf French or Italian
bread, cut diagonally into
1/2-inch slices

Thaw creamed spinach in
microwave at medium (50
percent power) 5-6 minutes.
Stir together mayonnaise
and next 3 ingredients; stir
in creamed spinach.
Spread creamed spinach
mixture evenly on bread
slices, and place slices on


baking sheet.
Bake at 350-degrees for 10
minutes or until cheese
melts. Serve immediately.

FRESH HAM
Serves 10 or more


Ask the butcher to bone
and tie the ham. Save the
bone for a special occasion
spaghetti sauce (adds great
flavor). By removing the
skin and the fat you will
have a wonderful, lean roast
pork. For a special treat,
have the butcher bone the
meat and leave the skin
(rind) on. It will become
crisp and delicious, albeit
loaded with fat. Either way,
the recipe is the same.

7 pound shank half fresh
ham
Garlic powder
Salt and pepper

Score rind with a sharp
knife. Sprinkle roast with
seasonings. Place on a rack
in roasting pan. Roast at
325-degrees, 35 minutes per
pound. Meat juices should
run clear.
Prepare gravy according
to recipe in previous
columns. Remove the rind
and cut up with scissors.
Carve meat in thin slices.
Serve with applesauce.

Gift ideas for golf enthusiasts


Just in case you were
unable to find the
perfect gift for the golfer
on your list while shopping
in the madness that is
Black Friday, I have a few
suggestions.
Equipment is a difficult
buy. Golfers have different
tastes. There is nothing
worse than getting some-
one a club only to find out
they won't be using it.
Tour Edge Golf
(www.touredge.com) is so


confident in its products
that every golfer gets a "30-
day play guarantee." If you
don't like the club within 30
days, you can return it for a
refund or store credit.

XCG-3 fairway wood is the
first to mate a titanium cup
face with a tungsten sole.
The result is a club that
simply bombs the ball,
while providing wonderful
forgiveness. If you don't see
a 20-yard increase in
distance over your current
fairway wood, the company
will even give you your
money back.
A custom-stamped,
personalized putter could
be just the thing for some.
Sizemore Golf's line of
Lux Putters (www.sizemore-
golf.com) offers you the
chance to hand-stamp
letters, numbers and some
symbols on one of several
designs. You can put your
golfer's initials, name, or
even "Merry Christmas" in
one or more places on the
putter, making it truly
unique and personal. Best
of all, prices start at just
$99.
Golfers are always in
need of replacing their
grips. Most grips wear out
within a season or so and
should be replaced. Instead
of those boring over-the-
counter grips, why not get
personalized ones for that
special golfer?
SMT Golf
(www.smtgolf.com) offers
nearly a dozen different
grips, each of which can be
imprinted with the name,


saying or logo you desire.
You can order as many or
as few as you wish, and
there is never an artwork or
setup charge. It's a great
way to personalize their
clubs for them. Imagine
grips that state "World's
Greatest Dad" or "No. 1
Mom" instead of that
obligatory coffee mug or t-
shirt?
Every golfer has his or
her own personality. Most
of us use head covers on
our clubs to protect them
from the abuse they see
riding around in a cart or
being carried along. By
using a head cover resem-
bling the golfer's favorite
animal, or supporting their
favorite team or college,
they not only protect their
investment, but show a
little of their personality as
well.
Daphne's Headcovers
(www.daphnesheadcovers.c
om) has something for
everyone. From covers
large enough to fit over
those huge drivers, to the
latest hybrids, Daphne's
has one to fit. Nearly all of
Daphne's head covers can
be embroidered to person-
alize them for that special
golfer.
Many men, and now
women, have dumped their

wallets and started using
money clips for their cash
and cards.
For 2009, M-Clip
(www.m-clip.com) has
expanded its lineup to
include several new styles
available with new price
points ranging from $99 to
$139 in both lightweight,
anodized aluminum and
stainless steel models.
In addition, the company
has several new signature
series designs with new
inlays that include: exotic
woods, mother of pearl and
abalone and stingray from
$229.95. Crafted with the


quality level that has
become the hallmark of its
products, each of these
new designs will serve
customers well for years to
come. I've had mine for
nearly four years now. All
M-Clip products come with
an unconditional guaran-
tee of your complete
satisfaction.
If you're looking for a
unique way to help that
golfer pass time on a rainy
day, try the GOLO game
(www.igolo.com). GOLO is
a dice game that involves
rolling nine dice. You take
your lowest score and roll
the remaining dice, select-
ing at least one per roll,
until you've played all nine.
Add up your totals and


that's your score.
There are other games
within the game to spice
things up. The game is
quite addicting and you
can even sample it on the
company's Web site.
Finally, there is always a
gift certificate for a round
of golf or even a cap or shirt
from their favorite course.
Some of the more famous
courses in the country will
even ship hats and shirts to
you if you call them and
place an order with your


credit card. I bought a cap
from Augusta National one
year using that method.
Whatever you decide I'm
sure the golfer on your list
will love the thought that
went into it.
