And theres no shortage of them on the Treasure Coast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Extensive damage A Martin County man, in addition to facing a criminal charge of driving under the influence, may not be too popular in one Stuart neighborhood, and thats putting it mildly. The mans SUV went off the road and over a culvert causing about $250 worth of damage. Then the vehicle traveled through the lawn of that re sidence, into another and hit a large oak tree, uprooting it. Par ts of the tree landed on the roof of the house at that property, causing about $1,000 of damage to the roof and siding. Then the SUV overturned and hit a car at that property causing about $15,000 worth of damage. And as it turns out, the man had no driver license. N or did he own the SUV. The man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. A bad day It wasnt a good day last w eek for a Port St. Lucie woman. S he was not only knocked off her scooter by a car, but she was also arrested. The Port St. Lucie woman, who suffered minor injuries, told police a vehicle backed up into her scooter, causing her to fall off of it. BEST OF THE BLOTTERJA Y MEISEL See B LOTTER, A4INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The ri verfront in Sebastian will get some extra exposure thanks to advertising dollars from the county. The Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce announced that Guy Harvey magazine, a national publication focused on fishing, boating, scuba diving and marine conserv ation, will run an advertisement about Sebastians riverfront and fishing opportunities in two of their upcoming quarterly issues and in a banner on the magazines website. The advertising campaign is partially paid for by the Indian River County Commissioners. The board allotted the chamber $10,400 to spend on promoting the riverfront, all of which went to purchasing the advertisements with the fishing magazine, said B eth Mitchell, executive director of the chamber. The tourism committee of the chamber spoke during a quarterly meeting in August about how to brand the ri verfront area to promote tourism in the area. When the magazine opportunity was presented, the members knew it was a good springboard for the new promotion.

Last Friday, Ms. Miner helped bring smiles to nearly two-dozen students from Highlands Elementary by giving them free sneakers just in time for Christmas.Cliff Partlow staff photographerINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Last Friday, 21 students from Highlands Elementary School walked into their classrooms with springs in their steps and smiles on their faces, thanks to their brand-new shoes. Ki ndergartener Sabin S hellman and other elementary students chattered excitedly as they first tried on new white socks and then explored the shelves of Payless ShoeS ource in Vero Beach for a new pair of free sneakers, paid for by grants and priv ate donations collected by The Education Foundation of Indian River County. S abin tried on athletic shoes with Velcro closures and a familiar character on the side. I picked out Lightning McQ ueen shoes because hes my favorite racer, S abin said. As he took his box with new shoes to the counter to be checked out, he asked Education Foundation program coordinator Ma ry M iner if he could put them on right away. After he was told yes, he shouted excitedly, Oh y eah! C an I run in them too? I think they will help me run faster, he said. Alexandra Ramirez, a second grader, took her time in perusing the shoe options and finally decided on a pair of light-up silver, pink, purple and blue sneakers.

Emily Honey of Sebastian, Kristen Candarini and A ustin Valentino of Vero B each and Seth Miller of Fo rt Pierce are working on four different projects to help others in their community, from food, to clothing, to education, to health care needs. Lee Legler and Kelly Legler of Legler Orthodontics started a Making Smiles scholarship program in early 2009 and the four are the second group of philanthropic students to earn the scholarship of free braces and orthodontic care. W e knew we wanted to create a scholarship program to donate orthodontic treatment to outstanding kids who really needed it and to inspire these young people to pay it forward to their community, said Mrs. Legler in a press release. A ustin, 15, is focused on r aising awareness for colon cancer, a cause near to his heart after losing his grandmother to the disease two y ears ago. M ost people dont know the severity of the cancer and if you get it caught early enough, it can be 100 percent treated, Austin said. A ustin speaks at health fairs and passes out awareness bracelets to schoolmates and volunteers his time at Live Oak Endoscopy C enter in Vero Beach. I nstead of being paid for his work at the center, A ustin hopes the money the company would spend on him will go to help pay for a colonoscopy for a person in need.

H er program is called the R eading Rangers. She has gotten other students involved and they use a program put together by The Learning Alliance to teach the children how to read, so they train and study how it is done, Mrs. Legler said. Kristin, also 13, created the Feed Indian River community food drive, which encourages food donations from local youth. A recent drive at the Majestic 11 Theatre in Vero Beach garnered her more than 100 pounds of food. I t was her idea to collect food in the slow times, and she has worked through Tr easure Coast Food Bank, Ms. Legler said. Eleven-year-old Seth M illers heart is for the homeless in his community, she said. On a designated day every month, Seth delivers items to Pinewood Park in Fort Pierce to help the homeless in the area, including toothbrushes, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and even a Thanksgiving Day dinner, Mrs. Legler said. A pplications for the scholarships are handled by the school district and must come with teacher recommendations. W e are most concerned with awarding a student who wants to give back to their community, said Dr. Legler in a press release. I feel very strongly that a y oung person who learns early on to create smiles for others through charity will have a lifetime of success, he said.SmilesF rom page A1 Photo courtesy of Legler OrthodonticsKristin Candarini, Emily Honey, Seth Miller and Austin Valentino stand with orthodontist L ee Legler and his wife, Kelly, as proud recipients of the Making Smiles scholarship program.

The EF-IRC is among 800 charitable agencies representing 50 states in the U.S., across C anada and Puerto Rico and in 10 Latin American countries to be part of the program. The EF-IRC will distribute sneakers through the Sneaker Ex change program that serves county public schools. The Education Foundation operates completely separate from the local school district and is funded almost entirely through private donations and grants. The foundation works closely with the local school district to prioritize program and funding needs. This unique structure allows the foundation to direct funding into classr ooms, thus avoiding restrictions that often come with other funding sources. I n its third year, the goal of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program remains the same: to provide footwear, a basic necessity, to children who might otherwise go without, said LuAnn Via, CEO of Payless. The success of the program over the past three y ears, and the number of children and families we have been able to assist, continues to drive our efforts.Unemployment is still very high, affecting many families that struggle to provide their children with basic essentials, she said. This is especially challenging during the holidays, and with the Education Foundation of Indian River Countys help, we hope to make a bigger impact than ever this y ear. F or more information,visit www.edfoundationirc.org email: director@edfoundationirc.org or call (772) 5640034.F or Hometown NewsNewsFP@hometownnewsol.com I never had light up shoes before, she said excitedly. F ellow second-grader R egan Sowa said it was the second time she had been a part of the Sneaker Ex change program and she was very excited to get her new shoes from the store. I tried on lots of different shoes to find the perfect one, and I did. My feet dont walk out of them, she said, while admiring the light catching on the glittery colored accents on her shoes. The Sneaker Exchange program, organized by The E ducation Foundation, has been outfitting sneakers to qualifying students since 1993. The students benefitting from the program are identified by the free and r educed lunch reports and sometimes, teacher recommendations, said Ms. M iner. Liz Gioffre, administrative assistant to Highlands Elementary Principal Lillian T orres-Martinez, said she accompanies the children from her school to the shoe store each time they are on the schedule. S he said her schools student population on free and r educed lunch has continued to climb each year and some parents struggle to outfit their children for school. P er school district policy, elementary students must w ear sneakers to school for safety reasons, and some parents can only manage to have one pair of acceptable school shoes for their child, so the Sneaker Exchange program is a big help, Ms. G ioffre said. M iddle-school and highschool students also benefit from the program, though they are not taken en masse to the shoe store, Ms. Miner said. S econdary students are given vouchers with photo identification and can go to the store with their parents or by themselves to pick out a pair that suits them, she said. On Nov. 29, The Education Foundation announced they had been selected as an official partner of Payless Gives, an annual giving program from P ayless ShoeSource. I n its third year, the goal of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 K ids program remains the same: to provide footwear, a basic necessity, to children who might otherwise go without, said LuAnn Via, CEO of Payless in a press r elease.

The driver of the vehicle who hit her saw her throw a cigarette box into the grass and went over to check on what she threw. He found a wooden container. An officer discovered a wooden container in the cigarette box contained a metal-cigarette type device with marijuana packed on one end of it. The woman told an officer that she was taking the marijuana with her on a fishing trip. In stead of going fishing, she ended up getting treated at an emergency r oom and then heading toward the St. Lucie County jail where she was charged with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana, tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia. M aybe the old adage is true that there are days when it is better to stay in bed. M aybe they should appear on Judge Judy A pparently, a neighborhood in Port St. Lucie is not the type of neighborhood that was portrayed in Mr. R ogerss show that aired on the Public Broadcasting S ystem. A report indicated a woman and a man living next to each other have had problems for 14 years. Those problems apparently boiled to the surface last week when the man started taking pictures of his neighbors unleashed dogs. After seeing this, the woman became enraged and began knocking down a r ock wall separating their properties. S he also told St. Lucie C ounty deputies that she pulled her pants down in order to give him (the neighbor) something to take a picture of. S he was arrested and charged with lascivious behavior, disturbing the peace and criminal mischief. The report didnt say whether the neighbor took photos of her as she was led away in handcuffs.

Improving traffic flowIf they are building this to improve traffic flow, why are they planning the entranceor exits to the compound on the same street within feet of where the bus stop is now? Y ou have two other streets to use that would completely resolve the issue. Just flip the plan over and use the street on the north side. I really do not believe anyone ever looks at a city plan for anything anymore. Why doesnt the press put out a drawing of the proposeddesign for the public? It seems the city doesnt want to share too much information anymore.Missing a tax paymentIf you miss paying an installment on your income tax, the IRS knows instantly and will be after you. If you enter this country illegally, the border patrol doesnt have a clue. S ome estimates are that there are 12 million illegals here but no one really knows. The truth is that the Obama administration does not care. The truth is that the Obama administration hopes that Americans will lose interest in this problem and that eventually the illegals will be permitted to vote (for D emocrats, of course).No place for envyThe top 1 percent is a mathematical palace which many people visit, but where few reside very long. F our fifths of 40-year old Americans do better than their parents did when they were 40. That is one of the things which make the U.S. great.It is called opportunity but there are no guarantees. O pportunity is based on hard work, sometimes mixed in with a little good luck.If we get rid of all the 1 percenters today, a new top 1 percent would take their place. It is a mathematical certainty. There is no place in this country for class envy.Lights, trash need attentionI wonder who is responsible for the sprinklers around the Fort Pierce Yacht Club? The lights on the river walk and the emptying of the trash cans? These all need attention.Still saving homes?Three years ago bureaucrats devised a scheme which they promised would save millions of Americans whose homes were underwater.They spent billions.It was a total failure. Now, having learned nothing, they are using something called the Home Affordable Refinance Program to do more of the same.They are determined to save millions of home owners regardless of how much their homes have fallen in value.Such foolishness is rewarded only in Washington.Give Cain the benefit of the doubtWhy is it when somebody is arrested, they are presumed innocent untilfacts prove guilt in a court of law, versus the case of Herman Cain being presumed guilty until heproves his innocence? Why is he being treated unfairly? I think it is another example from the bunch of crooks we have in Washington trying to keep an honest man out of office. Dont allow this injustice toruin a good mans efforts to bring honesty and integrity back to the White H ouse.In response to Counties should helpWhen did local counties state they, refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness? Whether they did or did not say this doesnt matter though. In your opinion, how is a county (or city) of any kind going to create work as you put it? Be fore work is created, there must be some sort of project (job) at hand. Depending on how big this project is, it will obviously require people to run the project. These people will then, and only then, be considered workers of the project, therefore, work has been created. Howe ver, these people will have to go through the normal hiring process to be accepted for the work just like any other job. If and only if they meet the qualifications for the job and pass the screening, will they be considered for the job. As a lot of people already know from looking for jobs everywhere, a lot of jobs require at least a year or more of experience before even getting considered for the job. Ev en if you just got out of college with your A/C (or mechanic, electrical, etc.) certs, you just spent a lot of money and time on, no experience equals no job. If they cannot find people for the job, the job will get contracted out to the lowest bid of a company who has the experienced workers for the job. This applies to the counties and cities, as well. Instead of going through the whole hiring and training process, they place a bid on the job and give the job to the company with the lowest bid. As for the hard for both counties to create work part, see the above answer for that. As far as the affordable housing part, correct me if Im wrong, but I believe not too long ago the county (and city) were purchasing foreclosed houses, fixing them up and reselling them to low-income families with a very low interest mortgage. With that said, they have, in a sense, created affordable housing. Did this eliminate homelessness? Im sure it has to an extent. Y ou are correct, there are people out of work or about to lose their jobs but saying they are going to be put on the street and become homeless is a bit drastic, although it is possible and may happen eventually. I have a friend who has been out of work (laid off, like a lot have during that time) for over three years who had tried to make ends meet by cutting lawns until he finally got hired as a sub-contractor (with no benefits) for an airplane manufacturing plant in Stuart, which had been bought out by a larger company a few years ago. He was doing great until this larger company decided to restructure (read: operate less expensively) a section of the warehouse of which my friend has been working in for over a year and my family member who has been working in for more than 35 years and have another company (read: sub-contractor) take over that section. Now, they both have to reapply for the same position they already had and, if all goes well, get rehired! Might not sound so bad to you, but my family members pay will now be cut down to more than half! How is he expected to still pay his mortgage, utilities and other bills? Does anyone who has been working so hard for ov er 35 years, who isnt even a boss making the big bucks, deserve that treatment? Of course not but thats what these big corporations do. They take over the small companies, merge, lay off the workers who have been there for over 20 years (wellexperienced) with great benefits and a pension (but cant r etire because they are still too young), and bring in new faces who get paid less, get barely any benefits and need to be trained. M aybe, instead of companies merging and buying out other companies all over the place, they should expand separately, keeping the current workers and hiring new Got something to say?

Helping those in needPhoto courtesy of Maureen NicolaceV olunteers Joyce Abbond, left and Lynn Hardcastle, hand Margaret Ray a turkey and sides ready to be prepared for Thanksgiving. On Nov. 23, Harvest Food & Outreach Centers three campuses in Vero Beach, Ft. Pierce and Orlando distributed 1,300 turkeys. Ms. Ray shops at Harvests Cost Share Grocery and has taken several of the classes offered, helping her to rise above economic hardship. The thing I like the most about what Harvest does is that its not all for free. Y ou have to work for it, she said. All recipients of the turkeys were required to have taken a minimum of two hours of life-skills classes in order to qualify for the food. Since I took office almost a year ago, a few core missions and values drive my decisions as your chief financial officer. You deserve a government that protects your hard-earned dollars and that is why my key initiatives continue to focus on transparency and accountability, finance and economy, fraud and consumer protection. W ith the next legislative session beginning in J anuary, my 2012 legislative agenda will focus on four core themes that support these initiatives: transparency in contracts and government spending, protecting consumers, fighting fraud and r educing regulatory burdens on Floridas businesses. H onoring my commitment to government transparency, several of my proposed reforms are aimed at strengthening accountability in state contracting. This effort includes expanded powers to monitor state agency procurements for compliance, as well as authority to review and approve or r eject state contracts prior to execution. To ensure that tax dollars are being spent wisely, my aim is to increase competition in the state bidding process. R ecent news reports have highlighted increasing trends in identity theft in Florida.As a consumer protection measure, I will work to close a loophole that allows certain groups to obtain Social Security information from the D epartment of Financial Ser vices Bureau of U nclaimed Property. In an effort to curb the increase of PIP fraud and give Floridians the relief they deserve on their auto insurance rates, my appointed insurance consumer advocate convened a working group to gather and develop ideas to address fraud and other potential alternatives to Floridas current no-fault system which will be presented to the legislature. To address a new workers compensation fraud scheme that is putting pressure on rates and crippling the business community, I called for a work group to make r ecommendations for combating workers compensation premium fraud. As I host business r oundtables across the state, a top concern has been the burdensome r egulations that stifle business growth. I am asking the legislature to r epeal or rework laws that do not add value to F loridas consumers or businesses, starting with some I have identified in my own agency. Fur ther, Florida must streamline its information technology services, and I am pursuing a modern IT structure to accomplish this goal. In this challenging economic climate, we have a deep responsibility to create conditions that will bring down costs for F loridas families and businesses. Im confident the legislature is equally committed to fostering economic success and r educing financial burdens on Floridas businesses and families, and I look forward to working with them toward these important goals.

The club is under new management after being closed for five years and has become a public golf course with competitive rates.Golf club back in businessVERO BEACH The golf course in the Vista Royal community in Vero Beach is back and ready for action. American Golf Club of Ve ro Beach, formerly Vista M eadows Golf Club at V ista Royale, is open for business with a new leaseholder who is excited about seeing the course flourish once again. J ohn Hendricks leased the 27-hole golf course with an option to own, and opened the 18-hole section for business on Nov. 25. W e already have mens and womens groups playing on a weekly basis, some nine holes, some 18 holes, Mr. Hendricks said. The course had lain dormant for about five years and since taking over the course in the last three months, the maintenance crews have been hard at work to improve the condition of the grasses and correct other landscaping issues. The course is still in r ough shape, but it is getting better every day. A golf course is always a work in progress, Mr. Hendricks said. The greens have been ov erseeded and there will be all new greens come next summer, he said. I nstead of a membership-only club, the American Golf Club is open to any and all golfers. W e are a public golf course catering to the residents of Vista Royale and outside residents, said Mr. Hendricks. R ates at the club are $30 for an 18-hole round with a golf cart and $20 for nine holes with a golf cart. A $5 discount is offered after 1 p .m. Dr iving range prices are $5 for a bucket or $10 to hit all day. Y ou can hit until your arms fall off, Mr. Hendricks said with a laugh. W ildlife is plentiful on the golf course. Blue herons and other wading birds can be found searching for food, while gators sun themselves on the banks. H ole 10 is a known hangout spot for a female gator and she can usually be seen with some of her y oung swimming around her, Mr. Hendricks said. The club has a full-service driving range with lessons and two golf professionals, Steve Lash and P aul Thomas. Mr. Hendricks has previously run other golf courses in West Palm Beach and has been involved with golf in one aspect or another since he was in middle school. I like golf, thats why Im in the business, said Mr. H endricks. The golf club has a new fleet of 2011 Yamaha gasoline-powered golf carts with GPS tracking systems. The devices can measure distances to the greens and alert players of hazards and bunkers, Mr. H endricks said. M embership packages are available from $150 per month. C ome and be a part of the fun at American Golf Club. Join one of our womens or mens groups and eat in our new restaur ant, Mr. Hendricks said.

is a perfect fit for promoting the Sebastian riverfront because the magazine places emphasis on conservation and sustaining the fishing industry, two important points the community focuses on, as w ell. Se veral new restaurants have come to the riverfront district, and the addition of Fishermans Landing and the emphasis on the working waterfront provides even more tourism appeal, Ms. M itchell said. By developing an advertisement package with both print media and online components, the chamber hopes to reach a wide national audience. W e want to get the most bang for our buck, Ms. Mitchell said. The advertisement will direct readers to the chambers website, which now features a special page with a map of the ri verfront district and all of the related waterfront businesses and how to get in touch with them. The page also has embedded links to video clips detailing Sebastians rich fishing heritage. Ms. Mitchell said she also hopes writers from the magazine will visit S ebastian to check out the area for themselves and put together an advertorial on the riverfront, including the commercial fishing and clamming industries, seafood markets and other businesses. G uy Harvey magazine is published by Lost Key P ublishing in Pensacola. R ecently, the magazine helped promote fishing and marine conservation in the Gulf of Mexico in the aftermath of the oil spills in 2010.

The highlight of the new w ebsite, www.ircommunityfoundation.com is a rev amped nonprofit knowledge center featuring 150 nonprofit organizations. V isitors to the website can search by the name of a nonprofit organization or by sectors including animal w elfare, arts and culture, children and youth, community services, environment, health, hunger and homelessness and senior services. O ur goal is to help donors find meaningful ways to support the causes they believe are most important, said Kerry Bar tlett, IRCF executive director. It costs nothing for local nonprofit organizations to upload contact information, program descriptions, success stories and short-term goals. There is even an opportunity to add the agencys logo to help reinforce the organizations image. O ther sections of the new w ebsite include improved access to information about the services IRCF offers individual philanthropists, private foundations and local professional advisors. Among the features are downloadable documents for establishing various types of funds; grant recommendation forms for curr ent fund holders and online access to donor central, a service that allows fund holders to view their fund balances, add to their fund and recommend grants to be paid from their fund. Almost anything a donor needs to engage in philanthropic activity can now be accessed through the community foundation website, Ms. Bartlett said. Pr ofessional advisors, such as attorneys and financial planners, will also find the website especially helpful in facilitating the work they do for their clients. The mission of the Indian River Community Foundation is to improve Indian River County through donor-driven philanthropy. Donors who partner with the community foundation r eceive the tax advantages of a public charity combined with the personal r ecognition, involvement and flexibility that is often found only through a priv ate foundation. Established six years ago, the Indian River Community Foundation began operating formally in 2009 and currently holds more than $9 million in assets restricted for charitable use. The majority of the assets are held in donor-advised funds. Earlier this year, the community foundation launched the Alma Lee Loy Legacy Society to honor those who have chosen to use the Indian River Community Foundation as a vehicle for continuing their philanthropy beyond their lifetime.

workers to keep the companies afloat. But that will be just too much work! S ounds kind of ironic, dont ya think? Who are these same people you refer to? The people who are out of work or about to lose their jobs or the county? You then say they look the other way to not solve the problem? Is this the people or county? If you mean the people or county or both, how do you think they can solve this problem you speak of? M aybe before posting these rant questions (problems), you should think if they have possible answers (solutions). B ut what does a 30-yearold man like me know who, with a college degree, is trying to make ends meet by having his own computer business and charging less than the big (geek) boys because, even though he has more than 15 years of computer experience, and more than eight years of customer service experience from working in r etail, cant get a real job with a steady salary and pension because he, unfortunately, doesnt have the paper proof (read: computer certificates and degree) of his experience.. Is there really many careers out there with a steady and livable salary and a pension these days? S ounds too good to be true now! How ever, if there still is, would I want to risk the current success of my curr ent business by trying to get hired by another company doing the same I already do with the possibility of getting laid off six months down the line and end up with nothing? I dont think so! Is the above really the r eason we have a bad reputation nationwide? B ecause we blame everyone else for our own ignor ance? I nstead of people blaming people, why dont we just all blame none, come together to work on solving the problems and have fun? www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 9, 2011 V ero Beach A9 UNDER NEW MANAGEMENTLEADINGOURKNOWLEDGEABLEST AFFTOPROVIDEEXCELLENTPA TIENTCAREANDSERVICEWe participate with most PPO dental insurancePeriodontist on staff IMPLANTPLACEMENTAll phases of Dentistry Specialties Include InvisalignCONVENIENTLYLOCATEDINSIDETHEINDIANRIVERMALLVISITOURWEBSITE WWW.PALMTREEDENTALCENTER.COM6200 20th St. #292 772-778-5773James Witulski D.D.S. lic#13338 ASK ABOUT OUR P ALM TREE DENTAL PLAN ALLDAYLONG!ONARCADEGAMESMIN. $50 REDEEM*ONEADAY ABUSEITANDLOSEITMON-SAT 9-10AM$10 FOR $10 MATCHON ALL ARCADE & POT OF GOLD GAMESSUPER SATURDAY BINGO AT 3PM & 8PMDINNER AT 6:30PM MONDAY EARLYBIRDSPECIAL SATURDAY SUNDAYS FRIDAYPIZZA PAR TY!

group in Indian River C ounty said. On a weekly basis, volunteers with Kids Hooked on F ishing take children out to fishing spots from Sebastian to Vero Beach, sharing their skills and love of the sport to a new generation. Br yson Le of Vero Beach, 10, and his cousin, Isis, 9, of S ebastian, spent last Saturday in the fresh air around the Sebastian Inlet using their fishing skills to land a big one. The children poured through their fishing tackle, carefully picking through their lures to find just the right one to attract the fish they wanted to catch. I m trying to get the flounders to come out. They have eyes on one side, and on the bottom its just flat, said Bryson. I like fishing, its my favorite hobby, said Isis. I t gets me out of the house and not get bored, she said. Par ents and other volunteers come out and help teach the children the technical skills of fishing and encourage them to develop other active and healthy habits, instead of staying inside playing video games, or even spending their time with the wrong crowds at school, said Sue Olsen, president of the organization. Ly dia Le, Isis mother and Br ysons aunt, said she enjoys spending the time outdoors and has a lot of fun memories to treasure from fishing with the children. I grew up on a lake and w ent freshwater fishing all the time, sitting there with a piece of bread rolled up on a hook, said Ms. Le. U pon moving to Sebastian, she picked up saltwater fishing and started sharing it with her family and friends. I t s great to get the kids out here doing this instead of doing something else. Y ou should see them when they have a fish on, theyre so excited, she said. I like when I catch big fish and it starts to fight me, because its helping me learn how to catch even bigger fish, Bryson said. Ma ri ne conservation is also taught during the fishing clinics. I learned not to litter in the water, because some animals swim into the lines and that can be a serious injury, said Isis. H ooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs is a certified angling education program for children through the F lorida Fish and Wildlife Co nservation Commission. The group tries to meet on Saturday mornings and S unday afternoons, weather permitting, at a variety of locations, including the S ebastian Inlet, the Barber Br idge and the Wabasso Br idge. Meeting times are prone to change, so calling ahead is the best way to stay informed about the next fishing date.

To r ecognize the event, the Vero Beach City Council issued a proclamation on Nov. 15, which was presented by Mayor Pilar Turner to I ndian River Community F oundation board members Rick McDermott, Bob Puff and Ben Bailey. I n a down economy, with limited resources and a growing need for services, community foundations can play a vital role in helping charitable dollars make the greatest impact possible in our community, said Mr. Mc Der mott, past chairman of the foundation. W e are more determined than ever to bring community partners and philanthropists together to find innovative and effective solutions to our most challenging social problems. C ommunity foundations are independent, public entities that steward philanthropic resources from institutional and individual donors to local nonprofits that are the heart of strong, vibrant communities. S ince the Indian River C ommunity Foundation began operating in 2008, more than $6.5 million in charitable gifts has flowed through the organization. N inety-three percent of the grants made in the most r ecent fiscal year supported charities that provide services to Indian River County r esidents. The foundation currently holds nearly $9 million in charitable assets, the majority of which are donoradvised funds. How ever, in recent years, individual philanthropists have requested deeper guidance in finding philanthropic programs that respond to the economic downturn. These grant programs have r esulted in funding programs that have helped the homeless, frail senior citiz ens, struggling families and local literacy programs.

VERO BEACH Horns will be wailing and jazz will be back at The Emerson Center in Vero Beach this Christmas season. The Space Coast Jazz All-Stars will perform numbers from A Stan K enton Merry Christmas and Duke Ellingtons N utcracker on Dec. 18 at 2:30 p.m. at The Emerson Center, the second in a three-concert jazz series. B oth selections are considered classic big band/jazz albums and the music of Stan Kenton is a Christmas standard, said director John Pendenza. They are probably two of the finest examples of big band Christmas music in the big band library, Mr. Pendenza said. The instrumentalists in the ensemble are top-tier jazz musicians who all r eside in the Central F lorida area and were hand picked by Mr. Pendenza. The group was well r eceived during their debut performance in Ve ro Beach in November, said Aaron Collins, musical director and conductor of the Space Coast S ymphony Orchestra, from which the jazz ensemble grew. There are many talented musicians in the area, but I guess they never get all together like this, Mr. P endenza said. I am very happy that we can present this and I hope it can become a staple in this area, he said. Mr. Collins said the musical arrangements are complex to play, but beautiful to hear performed. These are charts that y ou dont hear that often in this region. We have big plans for this group and bringing jazz to the forefront in this area, said Mr. Collins. The Stan Kenton section will be up first in the FRIDAY, DEC. 9SUNDAY, DEC. 11 Give This Christmas A way, featuring a cast of more than 100 performers, is filled with all the sights and sounds of the Christmas season.

program and feature classics such as O Holy N ight, God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman and The Tw elve Days of Christmas. The second half of the program will be new to a majority of the audience, Mr. Pendenza said. D uke Ellington and his writing partner, Bill Strayhorn, took the melodies of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovskys The Nutcracker and changed it into a jazz and swing masterpiece, he said. Be verly Paris attended the November jazz concert at The Emerson Center and was amazed at the quality of the performance. I t was wonderful, everyone had a fabulous time, she said. Adv anced tickets are $20 and can be purchased online or at the box office. T ickets at the door are $25. S tudents 18 and under with identification are free. F or tickets or more information about events at The E merson Center,call (772) 778-5249 or visit www.theemersoncenter.or g. Today we will make my familys traditional Christmas Eve appetizer, an antipasto. Antipasto is not a salad, but sectioned trays filled with delectable foods. No lettuce is used. Genoa salami, provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, pickled mushrooms, pickled eggplant, marinated artichoke hearts, caponata (eggplant appetizer), sardines, anchovies, capers, black and green olives create a magnificent display. You can add tomato w edges, tuna, hard-boiled egg or any other appetizer food that will fit. Each appetizer is prepared separately. The salami must be sliced paper-thin and rolled pencil-thin. The provolone is not the slicing kind found in supermarkets, but a strong cheese found in gourmet cheese sections, delis or meat markets. The domestic is a little milder than the imported; cut in w edges. Each is placed in its o wn section for individual selection. Cr usty Italian or French bread completes the feast. Now Id like to share with y ou a very old and special family tradition that my grandfather, Luciano C amerino, born in Bari, I taly, brought to America. A crche (nativity with a stable, Mary and Joseph, a cradle for the Christ child, kings, stable hands, animals, etc.) is set up, but the infant child is placed elsewhere, since he hasnt been born yet. On Christmas Eve at midnight, with appropriate music in the background, the lights are extinguished. Ev eryone carries a lit household candle, except the youngest child, who carries the baby Jesus on a silver tray. The oldest family member navigates the child in a procession throughout the home, blessing each r oom. The procession goes in birth order, and guests are always included. The Christ child is then placed into His cradle. All kneel and pray, the candles are extinguished and all embrace and wish each other a blessed Merry Christmas. Enjoy. See you next week. NOTE: All can be made days in advance, refrigerated and served at room temperature.R R O O A A STE STE D D R R E E D P D P E E P P P P E E R R S SSw eet red bell peppers come jarred, but roasting y our own is easy and the flavor is wonderful. One medium-size jar or two large or three medium peppers is enough for about 10 people when used in an antipasto. 1 medium-size jar r oasted red peppers, not pimentos OR 3 medium r ed bell peppers 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1/2-teaspoon oregano 2 cloves garlic, cut up 1 teaspoon parsley flakes S alt and pepper Dr ain jarred peppers and tear into large segments. To r oast fresh peppers, place washed peppers in pan on lower rack of oven. Broil until the skin turns almost black, turning until entire pepper is roasted. Place in a paper or plastic bag and seal. Let sit until cool enough to handle. P eel, seed and tear into large segments, add r emaining ingredients and season to taste.MAR MAR I I NA NA TE TE D D AR AR TI TI C C H H O O KE H KE H EAR EAR TS TSOne 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1/2-teaspoon each, garlic powder and oregano S alt and pepper C ut artichokes in half, sprinkle with salt and pepper and add remaining ingredients. Mix well, r efrigerate. We are all divinely blessed children of the universe. The blessing given to all of us at birth is to live a life filled with love, peace, health, abundance, faith, happiness and creativity. This is our spiritual heritage. It has little to do with earthly privilege, wealth, power, money or possessions. It has everything to do with taking the inner journey and opening up the heart, so we can give and receive love and the other blessings. This is our heritage as children of the higher power by whatever name we call it. The holiday season is upon us. The supreme law of spirit is cause and effect. Whatever we sow we r eap back multiplied. The greatest way to ov ercome the holiday blues and blahs is to make it a point, every day, to do something that helps another person less fortunate to cheer up and find the holiday spirit. The true spirit is about giving. S ometimes, we have a difficult time trying to figure out the different challenges of life. My belief is that there is always a spiritual reason why we are given challenges in life that sometimes tend to overwhelm us. Our highest purpose in life is to help educate, heal, have visions of our true purpose and then go about creating the purpose in an orderly manner.

and roadblocks that keep us from our dreams, there is a spiritual explanation. It is spirits way of helping us grow spiritual muscles. If we exercise the muscles in our body, they grow stronger and healthier. So whenever we are faced with spiritual challenges, it is the universes way of strengthening our soul and divine self. What is the reason for this emotional and spiritual workout? The angelic and cosmic forces are preparing us so that we can help others survive, grow and move toward their own light and purpose. The highest calling is to live a life of unconditional love and giving back as we have prospered and been blessed. When the universe puts someone in y our life facing their own challenges, we become the torch. Say to them, you can overcome this challenge. I did it and you can do it. Become a messenger of hope. In the giving, we r eceive back 100 fold more than we gave. Sow new seeds. Create a new cause in someones heart with a great need. There is nothing more important that we can do today, tomorrow, throughout the holidays and for all our future days to come. Now your life is justified. The earthly stress goes down. Happiness increases. Living by our higher purpose creates magic that is supernatural by nature. There are no limits in spirit. The only limits are those we place on ourselves by our own fearful limited thinking. Rise above any earthly limitations. You can do it. You we re born to do it. My greatest wish is that you find all these things and more. Turn away from divided fearful thinking. Listen to your inner voice and rejoice with open gratitude for life itself and all you have been given. Y ou are a divinely blessed ro yal child of the universe. M ay lifes richest blessings continue to pour out upon y ou this holiday season, and spill over into all your future days.

VERO BEACH The O keechobee High School Br ahmans ladies varsity basketball team lost to Vero B each 58-45, last week. The pace of the game started out slow, each team struggling until Vero found their niche. Vero was using a pass offense that caused Okeechobee to scramble defensively, often leaving Vero forwards open and allowing them to score high and early in the game. The defense on both teams seemed to focus on the players with the number 23 on each side. Ve ro s Mar gie Smith had 5 steals and 5 assists. W e could have done better in the first quarter, but we r eally came back, said S mith. I played the game and I got on the ball. O keechobees defense held Vero in the second half, but went into the half trailing Vero 19-35. B ut Okeechobee battled back, finally rallying in the fourth quarter. The fast pace that Vero set was finally matched by O keechobee. O keechobees number 23, C arley McCoin, scored 19 points in the game, 7 points in the fourth quarter, including a three-point shot. W e were a little unorganized, but at the end, we really stepped up, said McCoin. W e came back but we were down so much we just couldnt come back enough. O keechobee had a hard time with the defense the entire game. One key problem was keeping their arms up while they were attempting to block the fast snaps of the Vero offense. O keechobee came into the fourth quarter with 24 points and scored 21 points alone in the fourth quarter. W e really wanted to get everyone out there playing, said Vero head coach R ahshard Morgan. It was a lot of hard work and a lot of team work. We are used to a little faster game, but we have a long way to go and we need to be a better team and getting to a time when it r eally counts. O keechobee head coach Erin Morrow said the loss was credited to the pace of the game and needing to r eact quicker. W e need to practice harder and I told the girls that they need to make a choice: practice how they are or work harder in practice. I hope they choose the latter. Though she said she was disappointed, there was a bright spot. They didnt give up in the fourth quarter, said Morro w. W e need to get stronger and become more of a team. Ve ro s defense still held O keechobee enough to win the game, 58-45. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 9, 2011 Ve ro Beach B11 OWNERMICHAELBO YLE Dancing...

The Indians came out like r ockets, setting the pace of the game and challenging the Cobras to keep up. The Cobras kept pace up until 12 points were on the board. Thats when the Indians surged ahead. W e made a lot of mistakes in the first quarter, said Indians head coach Chuck Loewendick. We we re trying to go too fast and at times, we were our own worst enemy. The Indians quick snaps on offense and a 3-point shot by Jamario Lambert gave them a 10-point lead at the end of the first quarter. The differences in the teams offensive strategies we re apparent. The Indians we re using more of a passing offense and the Cobras were attacking the net. The Cobras net accuracy was lacking, as they missed several 3-point shots. Only two were made, one by R aquan Dobson and another by Anthony Moore. Going into the second half, the score was 38-26 with the Indians leading. The defenses of both teams stepped up. Neither team scored until 2 minutes into the third quarter. The C obras remained hard on the Indians, but their offense was difficult to read and moved too fast for the C obras to recover. Whether it was the panic of the game ending or the r ealization that they needed to pick up their game, the C obras scored 27 points alone in the fourth quarter. Br andon Jenkins landed a 3-point shot and two 3pointers were made by Cornelius Peterson, to help bring the games margin closer. I played hard, but in the fourth quarter, I feel like everything came together, said Peterson. Even if we would have won tonight, we still would have some place to improve, though. The intensity of the game was seen in the charging fouls that were called in the fourth quarter. This involved a lot of Indian free throws, precious points the Cobras could not give up. Dwayne Hoilett scored 12 points alone in the fourth quarter, helping the Indians expand the margin the C obras were trying so hard to close. There are still things we need to work on but I think we worked well as a team, said Hoilett. We are rivals (Fort Pierce) and in this type of game, its a physical game. W e had a very up and down game, said Cobra head coach Brandon Grammer. We just werent making our shots, but our boys played hard. W e still have things to work on. We have to get our confidence up. We need to play together and start trusting each other.Indians win season opener over CobrasBy Brittany Llorentebllorente@hometownnewsol.com Cliff Partlow /staff photographerV ero Beachs Dwayne Hoilett (No. 34) gets off a shot over Anthony Pierre-Louis (No. 22) of Fort Pierce Central during last Thursdays match-up in Vero Beach.

VEROBEACH, FLPGA Teaching ProfessionalPaul ThomasA vailable for LessonsIndividual or Groupat American Golf Club (formally Vista Royale) One thing I have noticed from this global warming is that many courses in south F lorida no longer over-seed for the winter season. You have to travel a little north to get those lush rye greens and tees. For tunately for me, our newspapers circulation covers courses well north of my So-Fla home. This past week I traveled a short hop and a skip up the interstate to Viera, home of Dur an Golf Club. Here I was met by an extremely friendly and helpful staff. I was almost certain the holiday season had something to do with it, but I was assured by the locals that this is always the case here. The first thing that jumped out at me was the beautiful lush green of the place. I had forgotten how great the winter rye makes everything look. Ball marks on over-seeded greens seem to heal more quickly and putts roll very smoothly on them. The tees provide you plenty of places to stick that peg in the ground without having to look for that last bit of actual turf. I was in heaven. Dur an Golf Club, completed in 2005, is easily accessible from I-95 in Viera, just north of Melbourne. The course features five sets of tees, with the longest playing to 7,151 yards. A very stern test considering how much wind blows through the fairways. For the less accomplished players, one can easily find a set of tees to match his or her skill or mood for the day. The club also has a full dining room, with a fantastic menu complete with early bird specials, a Sunday jazz brunch and more. The pro shop is filled with the latest fashions and gear, including a great selection of golf balls, gloves and caps. Also on property is the Dur an Academy of Golf, a comprehensive instructional and coaching program dedicated to golfers that are passionate about getting the most out of their game. The full-time staff of PGA instructors offer one-on-one individual lessons and group sessions to clinics, multi-day golf schools, and high tech video swing analysis. Dur an also offers adult and junior activities, leagues and more. The club truly serves as part of the community. The name Duran comes from the land itself, not the early s English pop band. Owned by the Duda family for five generations, the r elatively flat prairie was used as a cattle ranch and sod farm. The name is a combination of Du from D uda and ran from ranch. The course was designed by Lewis Chip Powell. His keen eye for manipulating an areas natural weather patterns and wind tendencies made him a logical choice to incorporate design features that considered the wide-open spaces found here, along with the varying coastal winds of the east coast of Florida. The combination resulted in holes that play with as much as a five-club difference from day to day. To build a golf course on a piece of property this flat, and void of all but one tree at the start, requires moving and shaping more than a million cubic yards of earth. The result is a course with links characteristics, including rolling terrain, mounded greens and 15 ponds. The use of native grasses, and the importation of a several thousand oak and cypress trees and native palms give the course character. The course is still young, and still maturing. The green complexes continue to improve and benefit from the growth that years of care bring. The trees on the course are young, but have begun to fill out and provide definition. The course starts you off on the right foot, a pleasant par-5 with no surprises. I began my day with a rare birdie. The third is home to the only tree standing when construction began. The lone palm stands guard on a small peninsula that jets out into the lake and warns golfers of the danger lurking behind. On your way around the course you are greeted with a pleasurable playing experience. Choosing the proper set of tees gives one just enough challenge. I used most of the clubs in my bag and quickly figured out that the wind needed to be taken into account on every shot. My final tally was better than I expected. W inter rates at Duran are very competitive, with F lorida residents enjoying a nice discount. The course is located at 7032 Stadium Par kway, Viera, FL 32940. F or more information, or to make a tee time, visit Duran GC on the web at www.durangolf.com or call friendly staff member at (321) 504-7776. J ames Stammer has been an avid golfer and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.He hosts the Thursday N ight Golf Show on WSTU 1450-AM.Contact him at stammergolf@yahoo.com.

And there's no shortage of them on the Treasure Coast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Extensive damage A Martin County man, in addition to facing a criminal charge of driving under the influence, may not be too popular in one Stuart neighborhood, and that's putting it mildly. The man's SUV went off the road and over a culvert causing about $250 worth of damage. Then the vehicle traveled through the lawn of that re sidence, into another and hit a large oak tree, uprooting it. Pa r ts of the tree landed on the roof of the house at that property, causing about $1,000 of damage to the roof and siding. Then the SUV overturned and hit a car at that property causing about $15,000 worth of damage. And as it turns out, the man had no driver license. N or did he own the SUV. The man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. A bad day It wasn't a good day last w eek for a Port St. Lucie woman. S he was not only knocked off her scooter by a car, but she was also arrested. The Port St. Lucie woman, who suffered minor injuries, told police a vehicle backed up into her scooter, causing her to fall off of it. BE ST OF THE BLOTTERJA Y MEISEL See B LOTTER, A4INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The ri verfront in Sebastian will get some extra exposure thanks to advertising dollars from the county. The Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce announced that "Guy Harvey" magazine, a national publication focused on fishing, boating, scuba diving and marine conserv ation, will run an advertisement about Sebastian's riverfront and fishing opportunities in two of their upcoming quarterly issues and in a banner on the magazine's website. The advertising campaign is partially paid for by the Indian River County Commissioners. The board allotted the chamber $10,400 to spend on promoting the riverfront, all of which went to purchasing the advertisements with the fishing magazine, said B eth Mitchell, executive director of the chamber. The tourism committee of the chamber spoke during a quarterly meeting in August about how to brand the ri verfront area to promote tourism in the area. When the magazine opportunity was presented, the members knew it was a good springboard for the new promotion.

Last Friday, Ms. Miner helped bring smiles to nearly two-dozen students from Highlands Elementary by giving them free sneakers just in time for Christmas.Cliff Partlow staff photographerINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Last Friday, 21 students from Highlands Elementary School walked into their classrooms with springs in their steps and smiles on their faces, thanks to their brand-new shoes. Ki ndergartener Sabin S hellman and other elementary students chattered excitedly as they first tried on new white socks and then explored the shelves of Payless ShoeS ource in Vero Beach for a new pair of free sneakers, paid for by grants and priv ate donations collected by The Education Foundation of Indian River County. S abin tried on athletic shoes with Velcro closures and a familiar character on the side. "I picked out Lightning Mc Q ueen shoes because he's my favorite racer," S abin said. As he took his box with new shoes to the counter to be checked out, he asked Education Foundation program coordinator Ma ry M iner if he could put them on right away. After he was told yes, he shouted excitedly, "Oh y eah!" "C an I run in them too? I think they will help me run faster," he said. Alexandra Ramirez, a second grader, took her time in perusing the shoe options and finally decided on a pair of light-up silver, pink, purple and blue sneakers.

Emily Honey of Sebastian, Kristen Candarini and A ustin Valentino of Vero B each and Seth Miller of Fo rt Pierce are working on four different projects to help others in their community, from food, to clothing, to education, to health care needs. Lee Legler and Kelly Legler of Legler Orthodontics started a Making Smiles scholarship program in early 2009 and the four are the second group of philanthropic students to earn the scholarship of free braces and orthodontic care. "W e knew we wanted to create a scholarship program to donate orthodontic treatment to outstanding kids who really needed it and to inspire these young people to pay it forward to their community," said Mrs. Legler in a press release. A ustin, 15, is focused on r aising awareness for colon cancer, a cause near to his heart after losing his grandmother to the disease two y ears ago. "M ost people don't know the severity of the cancer and if you get it caught early enough, it can be 100 percent treated," Austin said. A ustin speaks at health fairs and passes out awareness bracelets to schoolmates and volunteers his time at Live Oak Endoscopy C enter in Vero Beach. I nstead of being paid for his work at the center, A ustin hopes the money the company would spend on him will go to help pay for a colonoscopy for a person in need.

Kristin, also 13, created the "Feed Indian River" community food drive, which encourages food donations from local youth. A recent drive at the Majestic 11 Theatre in Vero Beach garnered her more than 100 pounds of food. "I t was her idea to collect food in the slow times, and she has worked through Tr easure Coast Food Bank," Ms. Legler said. Eleven-year-old Seth M iller's heart is for the homeless in his community, she said. On a designated day every month, Seth delivers items to Pinewood Park in Fort Pierce to help the homeless in the area, including toothbrushes, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and even a Thanksgiving Day dinner, Mrs. Legler said. A pplications for the scholarships are handled by the school district and must come with teacher recommendations. "W e are most concerned with awarding a student who wants to give back to their community," said Dr. Legler in a press release. "I feel very strongly that a y oung person who learns early on to create smiles' for others through charity will have a lifetime of success," he said.SmilesF rom page A1 Photo courtesy of Legler OrthodonticsKristin Candarini, Emily Honey, Seth Miller and Austin Valentino stand with orthodontist L ee Legler and his wife, Kelly, as proud recipients of the Making Smiles scholarship program.

The EF-IRC is among 800 charitable agencies representing 50 states in the U.S., across C anada and Puerto Rico and in 10 Latin American countries to be part of the program. The EF-IRC will distribute sneakers through the Sneaker Ex change program that serves county public schools. The Education Foundation operates completely separate from the local school district and is funded almost entirely through private donations and grants. The foundation works closely with the local school district to prioritize program and funding needs. This unique structure allows the foundation to direct funding into classr ooms, thus avoiding restrictions that often come with other funding sources. "I n its third year, the goal of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program remains the same: to provide footwear, a basic necessity, to children who might otherwise go without," said LuAnn Via, CEO of Payless. The success of the program over the past three y ears, and the number of children and families we have been able to assist, continues to drive our efforts.Unemployment is still very high, affecting many families that struggle to provide their children with basic essentials," she said. This is especially challenging during the holidays, and with the Education Foundation of Indian River County's help, we hope to make a bigger impact than ever this y ear."

F ellow second-grader R egan Sowa said it was the second time she had been a part of the Sneaker Ex change program and she was very excited to get her new shoes from the store. "I tried on lots of different shoes to find the perfect one, and I did. My feet don't walk out of them," she said, while admiring the light catching on the glittery colored accents on her shoes. The Sneaker Exchange program, organized by The E ducation Foundation, has been outfitting sneakers to qualifying students since 1993. The students benefitting from the program are identified by the free and r educed lunch reports and sometimes, teacher recommendations, said Ms. M iner. Liz Gioffre, administrative assistant to Highlands Elementary Principal Lillian T orres-Martinez, said she accompanies the children from her school to the shoe store each time they are on the schedule. S he said her school's student population on free and r educed lunch has continued to climb each year and some parents struggle to outfit their children for school. P er school district policy, elementary students must w ear sneakers to school for safety reasons, and some parents can only manage to have one pair of acceptable school shoes for their child, so the Sneaker Exchange program is a big help, Ms. G ioffre said. M iddle-school and highschool students also benefit from the program, though they are not taken en masse to the shoe store, Ms. Miner said. S econdary students are given vouchers with photo identification and can go to the store with their parents or by themselves to pick out a pair that suits them, she said. On Nov. 29, The Education Foundation announced they had been selected as an official partner of Payless Gives, an annual giving program from P ayless ShoeSource. "I n its third year, the goal of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 K ids' program remains the same: to provide footwear, a basic necessity, to children who might otherwise go without," said LuAnn Via, CEO of Payless in a press r elease.

The driver of the vehicle who hit her saw her throw a cigarette box into the grass and went over to check on what she threw. He found a wooden container. An officer discovered a wooden container in the cigarette box contained a metal-cigarette type device with marijuana packed on one end of it. The woman told an officer that she was taking the marijuana with her on a fishing trip. In stead of going fishing, she ended up getting treated at an emergency r oom and then heading toward the St. Lucie County jail where she was charged with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana, tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia. M aybe the old adage is true that there are days when it is better to stay in bed. M aybe they should appear on Judge Judy A pparently, a neighborhood in Port St. Lucie is not the type of neighborhood that was portrayed in Mr. R ogers's show that aired on the Public Broadcasting S ystem. A report indicated a woman and a man living next to each other have had problems for 14 years. Those problems apparently boiled to the surface last week when the man started taking pictures of his neighbor's unleashed dogs. After seeing this, the woman became enraged and began knocking down a r ock wall separating their properties. S he also told St. Lucie C ounty deputies that she pulled her pants down "in order to give him (the neighbor) something to take a picture of." S he was arrested and charged with lascivious behavior, disturbing the peace and criminal mischief. The report didn't say whether the neighbor took photos of her as she was led away in handcuffs.

Improving traffic flowIf they are building this to improve traffic flow, why are they planning the entranceor exits to the compound on the same street within feet of where the bus stop is now? Y ou have two other streets to use that would completely resolve the issue. Just flip the plan over and use the street on the north side. I really do not believe anyone ever looks at a city plan for anything anymore. Why doesn't the press put out a drawing of the proposeddesign for the public? It seems the city doesn't want to share too much information anymore.Missing a tax paymentIf y ou miss paying an installment on your income tax, the IRS knows instantly and will be after you. If y ou enter this country illegally, the border patrol doesn't have a clue. S ome estimates are that there are 12 million illegals here but no one really knows. The truth is that the Obama administration does not care. The truth is that the Obama administration hopes that Americans will lose interest in this problem and that eventually the illegals will be permitted to vote (for D emocrats, of course).No place for envyThe top 1 percent is a mathematical palace which many people visit, but where few reside very long. F our fifths of 40-year old Americans do better than their parents did when they were 40. That is one of the things which make the U.S. great.It is called opportunity but there are no guarantees. O pportunity is based on hard work, sometimes mixed in with a little good luck.If we get rid of all the 1 percenters today, a new top 1 percent would take their place. It is a mathematical certainty. There is no place in this country for class envy.Lights, trash need attentionI wonder who is responsible for the sprinklers around the Fort Pierce Yacht Club? The lights on the river walk and the emptying of the trash cans? These all need attention.Still saving homes?Three years ago bureaucrats devised a scheme which they promised would save millions of Americans whose homes were underwater.They spent billions.It was a total failure. No w, having learned nothing, they are using something called the Home Affordable Refinance Program to do more of the same.They are determined to save millions of home owners regardless of how much their homes have fallen in value.Such foolishness is rewarded only in Washington.Give Cain the benefit of the doubtWhy is it when somebody is arrested, they are presumed innocent untilfacts prove guilt in a court of law, versus the case of Herman Cain being presumed guilty until heproves his innocence? Why is he being treated unfairly? I think it is another example from the bunch of crooks we have in Washington trying to keep an honest man out of office. Don't allow this injustice toruin a good man's efforts to bring honesty and integrity back to the White H ouse.In response to Counties should help'When did local counties state they, "refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness?" Whether they did or did not say this doesn't matter though. In your opinion, how is a county (or city) of any kind going to "create work" as you put it? Be fore work is created, there must be some sort of project (job) at hand. Depending on how big this project is, it will obviously require people to run the project. These people will then, and only then, be considered workers of the project, therefore, work has been created. Ho we ver, these people will have to go through the normal hiring process to be accepted for the work just like any other job. If and only if they meet the qualifications for the job and pass the screening, will they be considered for the job. As a lot of people already know from looking for jobs everywhere, a lot of jobs require at least a year or more of experience before even getting considered for the job. Ev en if you just got out of college with your A/C (or mechanic, electrical, etc.) certs, you just spent a lot of money and time on, no experience equals no job. If they cannot find people for the job, the job will get contracted out to the lowest bid of a company who has the experienced workers for the job. This applies to the counties and cities, as well. Instead of going through the whole hiring and training process, they place a bid on the job and give the job to the company with the lowest bid. As for the "hard for both counties to create work" part, see the above answer for that. As far as the "affordable housing" part, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe not too long ago the county (and city) were purchasing foreclosed houses, fixing them up and reselling them to low-income families with a very low interest mortgage. With that said, they have, in a sense, created affordable housing. Did this eliminate homelessness? I'm sure it has to an extent. Y ou are correct, there are people out of work or about to lose their jobs but saying they are going to be put on the street and become homeless is a bit drastic, although it is possible and may happen eventually. I have a friend who has been out of work (laid off, like a lot have during that time) for over three years who had tried to make ends meet by cutting lawns until he finally got hired as a sub-contractor (with no benefits) for an airplane manufacturing plant in Stuart, which had been bought out by a larger company a few years ago. He was doing great until this larger company decided to "restructure" (read: operate less expensively) a section of the warehouse of which my friend has been working in for over a year and my family member who has been working in for more than 35 years and have another company (read: sub-contractor) take over that section. No w, they both have to reapply for the same position they already had and, if all goes well, get rehired! Might not sound so bad to you, but my family member's pay will now be cut down to more than half! How is he expected to still pay his mortgage, utilities and other bills? Does anyone who has been working so hard for ov er 35 years, who isn't even a boss making the "big bucks," deserve that treatment? Of course not but that's what these big corporations do. They take over the small companies, merge, lay off the workers who have been there for over 20 years (wellexperienced) with great benefits and a pension (but can't r etire because they are still too young), and bring in new faces who get paid less, get barely any benefits and need to be trained. M aybe, instead of companies merging and buying out other companies all over the place, they should expand separately, keeping the current workers and hiring new Got something to say?

Helping those in needPhoto courtesy of Maureen NicolaceV olunteers Joyce Abbond, left and Lynn Hardcastle, hand Margaret Ray a turkey and sides ready to be prepared for Thanksgiving. On Nov. 23, Harvest Food & Outreach Center's three campuses in Vero Beach, Ft. Pierce and Orlando distributed 1,300 turkeys. Ms. Ray shops at Harvest's Cost Share Grocery and has taken several of the classes offered, helping her to rise above economic hardship. "The thing I like the most about what Harvest does is that it's not all for free. Y ou have to work for it," she said. All recipients of the turkeys were required to have taken a minimum of two hours of life-skills classes in order to qualify for the food. Since I took office almost a year ago, a few core missions and values drive my decisions as your chief financial officer. You deserve a government that protects your hard-earned dollars and that is why my key initiatives continue to focus on transparency and accountability, finance and economy, fraud and consumer protection. W ith the next legislative session beginning in J anuary, my 2012 legislative agenda will focus on four core themes that support these initiatives: transparency in contracts and government spending, protecting consumers, fighting fraud and r educing regulatory burdens on Florida's businesses. H onoring my commitment to government transparency, several of my proposed reforms are aimed at strengthening accountability in state contracting. This effort includes expanded powers to monitor state agency procurements for compliance, as well as authority to review and approve or r eject state contracts prior to execution. To ensure that tax dollars are being spent wisely, my aim is to increase competition in the state bidding process. R ecent news reports have highlighted increasing trends in identity theft in Florida.As a consumer protection measure, I will work to close a loophole that allows certain groups to obtain Social Security information from the D epartment of Financial Se r vices' Bureau of U nclaimed Property. In an effort to curb the increase of PIP fraud and give Floridians the relief they deserve on their auto insurance rates, my appointed insurance consumer advocate convened a working group to gather and develop ideas to address fraud and other potential alternatives to Florida's current no-fault system which will be presented to the legislature. To address a new worker's compensation fraud scheme that is putting pressure on rates and crippling the business community, I called for a work group to make r ecommendations for combating workers' compensation premium fraud. As I host business r oundtables across the state, a top concern has been the burdensome r egulations that stifle business growth. I am asking the legislature to r epeal or rework laws that do not add value to F lorida's consumers or businesses, starting with some I have identified in my own agency. Fu r ther, Florida must streamline its information technology services, and I am pursuing a modern IT structure to accomplish this goal. In this challenging economic climate, we have a deep responsibility to create conditions that will bring down costs for F lorida's families and businesses. I'm confident the legislature is equally committed to fostering economic success and r educing financial burdens on Florida's businesses and families, and I look forward to working with them toward these important goals.

J ohn Hendricks leased the 27-hole golf course with an option to own, and opened the 18-hole section for business on Nov. 25. "W e already have men's and women's groups playing on a weekly basis, some nine holes, some 18 holes," Mr. Hendricks said. The course had lain dormant for about five years and since taking over the course in the last three months, the maintenance crews have been hard at work to improve the condition of the grasses and correct other landscaping issues. The course is still in r ough shape, but it is getting better every day. A golf course is always a work in progress," Mr. Hendricks said. The greens have been ov erseeded and there will be all new greens come next summer, he said. I nstead of a membership-only club, the American Golf Club is open to any and all golfers. "W e are a public golf course catering to the residents of Vista Royale and outside residents," said Mr. Hendricks. R ates at the club are $30 for an 18-hole round with a golf cart and $20 for nine holes with a golf cart. A $5 discount is offered after 1 p .m. Dr iving range prices are $5 for a bucket or $10 to hit all day. "Y ou can hit until your arms fall off," Mr. Hendricks said with a laugh. W ildlife is plentiful on the golf course. Blue herons and other wading birds can be found searching for food, while gators sun themselves on the banks. H ole 10 is a known hangout spot for a female gator and she can usually be seen with some of her y oung swimming around her, Mr. Hendricks said. The club has a full-service driving range with lessons and two golf professionals, Steve Lash and P aul Thomas. Mr. Hendricks has previously run other golf courses in West Palm Beach and has been involved with golf in one aspect or another since he was in middle school. "I like golf, that's why I'm in the business," said Mr. H endricks. The golf club has a new fleet of 2011 Yamaha gasoline-powered golf carts with GPS tracking systems. The devices can measure distances to the greens and alert players of hazards and bunkers, Mr. H endricks said. M embership packages are available from $150 per month. "C ome and be a part of the fun at American Golf Club. Join one of our women's or men's groups and eat in our new restaur ant," Mr. Hendricks said. The American Golf Club of Vero Beach is located at 100 Woodland Drive.For more information,call (772) 569-5554.A company website,currently under construction,can be found at www.americangolfclubverobeach.com.By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.com

is a perfect fit for promoting the Sebastian riverfront because the magazine places emphasis on conservation and sustaining the fishing industry, two important points the community focuses on, as w ell. Se veral new restaurants have come to the riverfront district, and the addition of Fisherman's Landing and the emphasis on the working waterfront provides even more tourism appeal, Ms. M itchell said. By developing an advertisement package with both print media and online components, the chamber hopes to reach a wide national audience. "W e want to get the most bang for our buck," Ms. Mitchell said. The advertisement will direct readers to the chamber's website, which now features a special page with a map of the ri verfront district and all of the related waterfront businesses and how to get in touch with them. The page also has embedded links to video clips detailing Sebastian's rich fishing heritage. Ms. Mitchell said she also hopes writers from the magazine will visit S ebastian to check out the area for themselves and put together an advertorial on the riverfront, including the commercial fishing and clamming industries, seafood markets and other businesses. "G uy Harvey" magazine is published by Lost Key P ublishing in Pensacola. R ecently, the magazine helped promote fishing and marine conservation in the Gulf of Mexico in the aftermath of the oil spills in 2010.

The highlight of the new w ebsite, www.ircommunityfoundation.com is a re v amped nonprofit knowledge center featuring 150 nonprofit organizations. V isitors to the website can search by the name of a nonprofit organization or by sectors including animal w elfare, arts and culture, children and youth, community services, environment, health, hunger and homelessness and senior services. "O ur goal is to help donors find meaningful ways to support the causes they believe are most important," said Kerry Ba r tlett, IRCF executive director. It costs nothing for local nonprofit organizations to upload contact information, program descriptions, success stories and short-term goals. There is even an opportunity to add the agency's logo to help reinforce the organization's image. O ther sections of the new w ebsite include improved access to information about the services IRCF offers individual philanthropists, private foundations and local professional advisors. Among the features are downloadable documents for establishing various types of funds; grant recommendation forms for curr ent fund holders and online access to donor central, a service that allows fund holders to view their fund balances, add to their fund and recommend grants to be paid from their fund. Almost anything a donor needs to engage in philanthropic activity can now be accessed through the community foundation website," Ms. Bartlett said. "P r ofessional advisors, such as attorneys and financial planners, will also find the website especially helpful in facilitating the work they do for their clients." The mission of the Indian River Community Foundation is to improve Indian River County through donor-driven philanthropy. Donors who partner with the community foundation r eceive the tax advantages of a public charity combined with the personal r ecognition, involvement and flexibility that is often found only through a priv ate foundation. Established six years ago, the Indian River Community Foundation began operating formally in 2009 and currently holds more than $9 million in assets restricted for charitable use. The majority of the assets are held in donor-advised funds. Earlier this year, the community foundation launched the Alma Lee Loy Legacy Society to honor those who have chosen to use the Indian River Community Foundation as a vehicle for continuing their philanthropy beyond their lifetime.

workers to keep the companies afloat. But that will be just too much work! S ounds kind of ironic, don't ya think? Who are these same people you refer to? The people who are out of work or about to lose their jobs or the county? You then say they look the other way to not solve the problem?" Is this the people or county? If y ou mean the people or county or both, how do you think they can solve this problem you speak of? M aybe before posting these rant questions (problems), you should think if they have possible answers (solutions). B ut what does a 30-yearold man like me know who, with a college degree, is trying to make ends meet by having his own computer business and charging less than the big (geek) boys because, even though he has more than 15 years of computer experience, and more than eight years of customer service experience from working in r etail, can't get a "real job" with a steady salary and pension because he, unfortunately, doesn't have the paper proof (read: computer certificates and degree) of his experience.. Is there really many careers out there with a steady and livable salary and a pension these days? S ounds too good to be true now! How ever, if there still is, would I want to risk the current success of my curr ent business by trying to get hired by another company doing the same I already do with the possibility of getting laid off six months down the line and end up with nothing? I don't think so! Is the above really the r eason we have a bad reputation nationwide? B ecause we blame everyone else for our own ignor ance? I nstead of people blaming people, why don't we just all blame none, come together to work on solving the problems and have fun? www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 9, 2011 V ero Beach A9 UNDER NEW MANAGEMENTLEADINGOURKNOWLEDGEABLEST AFFTOPROVIDEEXCELLENTPA TIENTCAREANDSERVICEWe participate with most PPO dental insurance€Periodontist on staff IMPLANTPLACEMENT€All phases of Dentistry €Specialties Include InvisalignCONVENIENTLYLOCATEDINSIDETHEINDIANRIVERMALLVISITOURWEBSITE WWW.PALMTREEDENTALCENTER.COM6200 20th St. #292 € 772-778-5773James Witulski D.D.S. lic#13338 760121 ASK ABOUT OUR P ALM TREE DENTAL PLAN 654430ALLDAYLONG!ONARCADEGAMESMIN. $50 REDEEM*ONEADAY ABUSEITANDLOSEITMON-SAT 9-10AM$10 FOR $10 MATCHON ALL ARCADE & POT OF GOLD GAMESSUPER SATURDAY BINGO AT 3PM & 8PMDINNER AT 6:30PM MONDAY EARLYBIRDSPECIAL SATURDAY SUNDAYS FRIDAYPIZZA PA R TY!

group in Indian River C ounty said. On a weekly basis, volunteers with Kids Hooked on F ishing take children out to fishing spots from Sebastian to Vero Beach, sharing their skills and love of the sport to a new generation. Br yson Le of Vero Beach, 10, and his cousin, Isis, 9, of S ebastian, spent last Saturday in the fresh air around the Sebastian Inlet using their fishing skills to land a big one. The children poured through their fishing tackle, carefully picking through their lures to find just the right one to attract the fish they wanted to catch. "I 'm trying to get the flounders to come out. They have eyes on one side, and on the bottom it's just flat," said Bryson. "I like fishing, it's my favorite hobby," said Isis. "I t gets me out of the house and not get bored," she said. Pa r ents and other volunteers come out and help teach the children the technical skills of fishing and encourage them to develop other active and healthy habits, instead of staying inside playing video games, or even spending their time with the wrong crowds at school, said Sue Olsen, president of the organization. Ly dia Le, Isis' mother and Br yson's aunt, said she enjoys spending the time outdoors and has a lot of fun memories to treasure from fishing with the children. "I grew up on a lake and w ent freshwater fishing all the time, sitting there with a piece of bread rolled up on a hook," said Ms. Le. U pon moving to Sebastian, she picked up saltwater fishing and started sharing it with her family and friends. "I t' s great to get the kids out here doing this instead of doing something else. Y ou should see them when they have a fish on, they're so excited," she said. "I like when I catch big fish and it starts to fight me, because it's helping me learn how to catch even bigger fish," Bryson said. Ma ri ne conservation is also taught during the fishing clinics. "I learned not to litter in the water, because some animals swim into the lines and that can be a serious injury," said Isis. H ooked on Fishing, Not on Drugs is a certified angling education program for children through the F lorida Fish and Wildlife Co nservation Commission. The group tries to meet on Saturday mornings and S unday afternoons, weather permitting, at a variety of locations, including the S ebastian Inlet, the Barber Br idge and the Wabasso Br idge. Meeting times are prone to change, so calling ahead is the best way to stay informed about the next fishing date.

To r ecognize the event, the Vero Beach City Council issued a proclamation on No v. 15, which was presented by Mayor Pilar Turner to I ndian River Community F oundation board members Rick McDermott, Bob Puff and Ben Bailey. "I n a down economy, with limited resources and a growing need for services, community foundations can play a vital role in helping charitable dollars make the greatest impact possible in our community," said Mr. Mc De r mott, past chairman of the foundation. "W e are more determined than ever to bring community partners and philanthropists together to find innovative and effective solutions to our most challenging social problems." C ommunity foundations are independent, public entities that steward philanthropic resources from institutional and individual donors to local nonprofits that are the heart of strong, vibrant communities. S ince the Indian River C ommunity Foundation began operating in 2008, more than $6.5 million in charitable gifts has flowed through the organization. N inety-three percent of the grants made in the most r ecent fiscal year supported charities that provide services to Indian River County r esidents. The foundation currently holds nearly $9 million in charitable assets, the majority of which are donoradvised funds. How ever, in recent years, individual philanthropists have requested deeper guidance in finding philanthropic programs that respond to the economic downturn. These grant programs have r esulted in funding programs that have helped the homeless, frail senior citiz ens, struggling families and local literacy programs.

VERO BEACH Horns will be wailing and jazz will be back at The Emerson Center in Vero Beach this Christmas season. The Space Coast Jazz All-Stars will perform numbers from "A Stan K enton Merry Christmas" and Duke Ellington's "N utcracker" on Dec. 18 at 2:30 p.m. at The Emerson Center, the second in a three-concert jazz series. B oth selections are considered classic big band/jazz albums and the music of Stan Kenton is a Christmas standard, said director John Pendenza. They are probably two of the finest examples of big band Christmas music in the big band library," Mr. Pendenza said. The instrumentalists in the ensemble are top-tier jazz musicians who all r eside in the Central F lorida area and were hand picked by Mr. Pendenza. The group was well r eceived during their debut performance in Ve ro B each in November, said Aaron Collins, musical director and conductor of the Space Coast S ymphony Orchestra, from which the jazz ensemble grew. There are many talented musicians in the area, but I guess they never get all together like this," Mr. P endenza said. "I am very happy that we can present this and I hope it can become a staple in this area," he said. Mr. Collins said the musical arrangements are complex to play, but beautiful to hear performed. These are charts that y ou don't hear that often in this region. We have big plans for this group and bringing jazz to the forefront in this area," said Mr. Collins.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Indian River Habitat for H umanity hosted approximately 200 guests at its new office and training center Nov. 17. Fr iends, volunteers, donors, city and county officials, homeowners and staff joined to celebrate the award-winning affiliate's 20th anniversary and new facility grand opening. G uests gathered under a tent in the lawn area for greetings and hors d'oeuvres, then participated in a r ibbon-cutting ceremony, followed by building tours, r efreshments and reception. In addition to providing office, storage and meeting space for staff, volunteers, committees and boards to carry out their tasks with greater efficiency, the 8,100-square-foot OTC also provides space for training classes for Habitat homebuyers and homeo wners, as well as space for use by other area nonprofits.

The second half of the program will be new to a majority of the audience, Mr. Pendenza said. D uke Ellington and his writing partner, Bill Strayhorn, took the melodies of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker" and changed it into a jazz and swing masterpiece, he said. Be verly Paris attended the November jazz concert at The Emerson Center and was amazed at the quality of the performance. "I t was wonderful, everyone had a fabulous time," she said.

F or tickets or more information about events at The E merson Center,call (772) 778-5249 or visit www.theemersoncenter.or g. Today we will make my family's traditional Christmas Eve appetizer, an antipasto. Antipasto is not a salad, but sectioned trays filled with delectable foods. No lettuce is used. Genoa salami, provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, pickled mushrooms, pickled eggplant, marinated artichoke hearts, caponata (eggplant appetizer), sardines, anchovies, capers, black and green olives create a magnificent display. You can add tomato w edges, tuna, hard-boiled egg or any other appetizer food that will fit. Each appetizer is prepared separately. The salami must be sliced paper-thin and rolled pencil-thin. The provolone is not the slicing kind found in supermarkets, but a strong cheese found in gourmet cheese sections, delis or meat markets. The domestic is a little milder than the imported; cut in w edges. Each is placed in its o wn section for individual selection. Cr usty Italian or French bread completes the feast. No w I'd like to share with y ou a very old and special family tradition that my grandfather, Luciano C amerino, born in Bari, I taly, brought to America. A crche (nativity with a stable, Mary and Joseph, a cradle for the Christ child, kings, stable hands, animals, etc.) is set up, but the infant child is placed elsewhere, since he hasn't been born yet. On Christmas Eve at midnight, with appropriate music in the background, the lights are extinguished. Ev eryone carries a lit household candle, except the youngest child, who carries the baby Jesus on a silver tray. The oldest family member navigates the child in a procession throughout the home, blessing each r oom. The procession goes in birth order, and guests are always included. The Christ child is then placed into His cradle. All kneel and pray, the candles are extinguished and all embrace and wish each other a blessed Merry Christmas. Enjoy. See you next week. NOTE: All can be made days in advance, refrigerated and served at room temperature.R R O O A A STE STE D D R R E E D P D P E E P P P P E E R R S SSw eet red bell peppers come jarred, but roasting y our own is easy and the flavor is wonderful.

Mix well, r efrigerate. We are all divinely blessed children of the universe. The blessing given to all of us at birth is to live a life filled with love, peace, health, abundance, faith, happiness and creativity. This is our spiritual heritage. It has little to do with earthly privilege, wealth, power, money or possessions. It has everything to do with taking the inner journey and opening up the heart, so we can give and receive love and the other blessings. This is our heritage as children of the higher power by whatever name we call it. The holiday season is upon us. The supreme law of spirit is cause and effect. Whatever we sow we r eap back multiplied. The greatest way to ov ercome the holiday blues and blahs is to make it a point, every day, to do something that helps another person less fortunate to cheer up and find the holiday spirit. The true spirit is about giving. S ometimes, we have a difficult time trying to figure out the different challenges of life. My belief is that there is always a spiritual reason why we are given challenges in life that sometimes tend to overwhelm us. Our highest purpose in life is to help educate, heal, have visions of our true purpose and then go about creating the purpose in an orderly manner.

and roadblocks that keep us from our dreams, there is a spiritual explanation. It is spirit's way of helping us grow spiritual muscles. If we exercise the muscles in our body, they grow stronger and healthier. So whenever we are faced with spiritual challenges, it is the universe's way of strengthening our soul and divine self. What is the reason for this emotional and spiritual workout? The angelic and cosmic forces are preparing us so that we can help others survive, grow and move toward their own light and purpose. The highest calling is to live a life of unconditional love and giving back as we have prospered and been blessed. When the universe puts someone in y our life facing their own challenges, we become the torch. Say to them, "you can overcome this challenge. I did it and you can do it." Become a messenger of hope. In the giving, we r eceive back 100 fold more than we gave. Sow new seeds. Create a new cause in someone's heart with a great need. There is nothing more important that we can do today, tomorrow, throughout the holidays and for all our future days to come. No w your life is justified. The earthly stress goes down. Happiness increases. Living by our higher purpose creates magic that is supernatural by nature. There are no limits in spirit. The only limits are those we place on ourselves by our own fearful limited thinking. Rise above any earthly limitations. You can do it. You we re born to do it. My greatest wish is that you find all these things and more. Turn away from divided fearful thinking. Listen to your inner voice and rejoice with open gratitude for life itself and all you have been given. Y ou are a divinely blessed ro yal child of the universe. M ay life's richest blessings continue to pour out upon y ou this holiday season, and spill over into all your future days.

VERO BEACH The O keechobee High School Br ahmans ladies varsity basketball team lost to Vero B each 58-45, last week. The pace of the game started out slow, each team struggling until Vero found their niche. Vero was using a pass offense that caused Okeechobee to scramble defensively, often leaving Vero forwards open and allowing them to score high and early in the game. The defense on both teams seemed to focus on the players with the number 23 on each side. Ve ro 's Ma r gie Smith had 5 steals and 5 assists. "W e could have done better in the first quarter, but we r eally came back," said S mith. "I played the game and I got on the ball." O keechobee's defense held Vero in the second half, but went into the half trailing Vero 19-35. B ut Okeechobee battled back, finally rallying in the fourth quarter. The fast pace that Vero set was finally matched by O keechobee. O keechobee's number 23, C arley McCoin, scored 19 points in the game, 7 points in the fourth quarter, including a three-point shot. "W e were a little unorganized, but at the end, we really stepped up," said McCoin. "W e came back but we were down so much we just couldn't come back enough." O keechobee had a hard time with the defense the entire game. One key problem was keeping their arms up while they were attempting to block the fast snaps of the Vero offense. O keechobee came into the fourth quarter with 24 points and scored 21 points alone in the fourth quarter. "W e really wanted to get everyone out there playing," said Vero head coach R ahshard Morgan. "It was a lot of hard work and a lot of team work. We are used to a little faster game, but we have a long way to go and we need to be a better team and getting to a time when it r eally counts." O keechobee head coach Erin Morrow said the loss was credited to the pace of the game and needing to r eact quicker. "W e need to practice harder and I told the girls that they need to make a choice: practice how they are or work harder in practice. I hope they choose the latter." Though she said she was disappointed, there was a bright spot. They didn't give up in the fourth quarter," said Morro w. "W e need to get stronger and become more of a team." Ve ro 's defense still held O keechobee enough to win the game, 58-45. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 9, 2011 Ve ro Beach B11 760075 OWNERMICHAELBO YLE760105 Dancing...

The Indians came out like r ockets, setting the pace of the game and challenging the Cobras to keep up. The Cobras kept pace up until 12 points were on the board. That's when the Indians surged ahead. "W e made a lot of mistakes in the first quarter," said Indians head coach Chuck Loewendick. "We we re trying to go too fast and at times, we were our own worst enemy." The Indians quick snaps on offense and a 3-point shot by Jamario Lambert gave them a 10-point lead at the end of the first quarter. The differences in the team's offensive strategies we re apparent. The Indians we re using more of a passing offense and the Cobras were attacking the net. The Cobras net accuracy was lacking, as they missed several 3-point shots. Only two were made, one by R aquan Dobson and another by Anthony Moore. Going into the second half, the score was 38-26 with the Indians leading. The defenses of both teams stepped up. Neither team scored until 2 minutes into the third quarter. The C obras remained hard on the Indians, but their offense was difficult to read and moved too fast for the C obras to recover. Whether it was the panic of the game ending or the r ealization that they needed to pick up their game, the C obras scored 27 points alone in the fourth quarter. Br andon Jenkins landed a 3-point shot and two 3pointers were made by Cornelius Peterson, to help bring the games' margin closer. "I played hard, but in the fourth quarter, I feel like everything came together," said Peterson. "Even if we would have won tonight, we still would have some place to improve, though." The intensity of the game was seen in the charging fouls that were called in the fourth quarter. This involved a lot of Indian free throws, precious points the Cobras could not give up. Dwayne Hoilett scored 12 points alone in the fourth quarter, helping the Indians expand the margin the C obras were trying so hard to close. There are still things we need to work on but I think we worked well as a team," said Hoilett. "We are rivals (Fort Pierce) and in this type of game, it's a physical game." "W e had a very up and down game," said Cobra head coach Brandon Grammer. "We just weren't making our shots, but our boys played hard. "W e still have things to work on. We have to get our confidence up. We need to play together and start trusting each other."Indians win season opener over CobrasBy Brittany Llorentebllorente@hometownnewsol.com Cliff Partlow /staff photographerV ero Beach's Dwayne Hoilett (No. 34) gets off a shot over Anthony Pierre-Louis (No. 22) of Fort Pierce Central during last Thursday's match-up in Vero Beach.

You have to travel a little north to get those lush rye greens and tees. Fo r tunately for me, our newspaper's circulation covers courses well north of my So-Fla home. This past week I traveled a short hop and a skip up the interstate to Viera, home of Dur an Golf Club. Here I was met by an extremely friendly and helpful staff. I was almost certain the holiday season had something to do with it, but I was assured by the locals that this is always the case here. The first thing that jumped out at me was the beautiful lush green of the place. I had forgotten how great the winter rye makes everything look. Ball marks on over-seeded greens seem to heal more quickly and putts roll very smoothly on them. The tees provide you plenty of places to stick that peg in the ground without having to look for that last bit of actual turf. I was in heaven. Du r an Golf Club, completed in 2005, is easily accessible from I-95 in Viera, just north of Melbourne. The course features five sets of tees, with the longest playing to 7,151 yards. A very stern test considering how much wind blows through the fairways. For the less accomplished players, one can easily find a set of tees to match his or her skill or mood for the day. The club also has a full dining room, with a fantastic menu complete with early bird specials, a Sunday jazz brunch and more. The pro shop is filled with the latest fashions and gear, including a great selection of golf balls, gloves and caps. Also on property is the Du r an Academy of Golf, a comprehensive instructional and coaching program dedicated to golfers that are passionate about getting the most out of their game. The full-time staff of PGA instructors offer one-on-one individual lessons and group sessions to clinics, multi-day golf schools, and high tech video swing analysis. Du r an also offers adult and junior activities, leagues and more. The club truly serves as part of the community. The name Duran comes from the land itself, not the early '80s English pop band. Owned by the Duda family for five generations, the r elatively flat prairie was used as a cattle ranch and sod farm. The name is a combination of "Du" from D uda and "ran" from ranch. The course was designed by Lewis "Chip" Powell. His keen eye for manipulating an area's natural weather patterns and wind tendencies made him a logical choice to incorporate design features that considered the wide-open spaces found here, along with the varying coastal winds of the east coast of Florida. The combination resulted in holes that play with as much as a five-club difference from day to day. To build a golf course on a piece of property this flat, and void of all but one tree at the start, requires moving and shaping more than a million cubic yards of earth. The result is a course with links characteristics, including rolling terrain, mounded greens and 15 ponds. The use of native grasses, and the importation of a several thousand oak and cypress trees and native palms give the course character. The course is still young, and still maturing. The green complexes continue to improve and benefit from the growth that years of care bring. The trees on the course are young, but have begun to fill out and provide definition. The course starts you off on the right foot, a pleasant par-5 with no surprises. I began my day with a rare birdie. The third is home to the only tree standing when construction began. The lone palm stands guard on a small peninsula that jets out into the lake and warns golfers of the danger lurking behind. On your way around the course you are greeted with a pleasurable playing experience. Choosing the proper set of tees gives one just enough challenge. I used most of the clubs in my bag and quickly figured out that the wind needed to be taken into account on every shot. My final tally was better than I expected. W inter rates at Duran are very competitive, with F lorida residents enjoying a nice discount. The course is located at 7032 Stadium Pa r kway, Viera, FL 32940. F or more information, or to make a tee time, visit Duran GC on the web at www.durangolf.com or call friendly staff member at (321) 504-7776. J ames Stammer has been an avid golfer and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.He hosts the Thursday N ight Golf Show on WSTU 1450-AM.Contact him at stammergolf@yahoo.com.
