Du ri ng the Dec. 14 school board meeting, the board voted 4-0 to terminate a contract with the law firm Br o wn, Garganese, Weiss and D'Agresta for the consultant, Stuart Singer, who served the school board as the head of human r esources. The vote came after a recommendation by S uperintendent Fran A dams. School board member M att McCain was absent from the meeting. Mr. Mc C ain was the only school board member to vote no on Mr. Singer's initial hire. S uperintendent Adams said the reason to terminate the contract with Mr. Singer was because he was not the r ight person for the job. M embers of the community, as well as a state senator, had called into question the hiring of Mr. Singer because he retired at the end of November from serving in the Osceola County School District where he was part of the Florida R etirement System's deferred retirement option program. By law, participants in the DROP system collect a pension after retirement and cannot be hired and paid by another organization using the Florida Retirement System for six months after the r etirement date. By hiring Mr. Singer as a consultant through the law firm of Brown, Garganese, W eiss and D'Agresta, the school board could pay the firm, who would then in turn, pay Mr. Singer.

Park directors had previously announced the park would close on Dec. 31. Di r ectors for Dogs For Life, the nonprofit that o wns the 4.5 acre parcel, said membership levels and incoming dues have decreased to the point where keeping the park open was no longer feasible. The park, which opened in 2002, will be put on the market in 2013, after a market study and appraisal is completed, directors said. "I t' s breaking our hearts to do it, but it is strictly a business decision," said S helly Ferger, founder and executive director of Dogs Fo r Life. W ith the anonymous donation, the members will have the opportunity to review their options and will discuss if there is any way to keep the park open, a press release said. Over the past few years, the membership of Dogs F or Life has plummeted, with the economy as a large factor, and without membership dues and donations, the park cannot be maintained, Ms. Fe r ger said. M embership dues and donations were the only source of funding for the park as no city or county money has been received.

profit organization begun in the late 1990s that trains dogs for hearing and mobility assistance, as well as pet therapy. The organization's leaders are also certified to train dogs to serve veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder. The main mission of the organization was always to train service dogs, not to r un an off-leash dog park, though the membership has enjoyed its presence greatly, Ms. Ferger said. "W e will be moving full steam ahead in training hearing, mobility and service dogs for veterans. We are definitely going to continue in that mission," she said. "W e would love to see the park continue as a dog park property. We really hope that is the case," Ms. Fe r ger added. Dogs For Life is fully accredited by Assistance Dogs International and currently goes to the homes of individuals to train the dogs. H earing dogs are trained to recognize door knocks, r inging telephones, alarm clocks and smoke alarms and alert their hearingimpaired owners. M obility assistance dogs can be trained to do a variety of tasks, based on the needs of their physically challenged owners, such as r ising from chairs and r etrieving fallen objects. Dogs For Life is one of the few organizations in F lorida with the Assistance Dogs International accreditation and can provide the necessary certification r equired for dogs owned by veterans to receive benefits through the veterans administration. One Dogs For Life trained-dog, Pia Pia, helps r etired Iraqi veteran Jim T aylor live his life with freedom and mental wellbeing, Ms. Ferger said. "W e have many success stories which demonstrate that a task-trained dog can save an individual's life by being trained to tap a 911 emergency phone," Ms. Fe r ger said in a press r elease. hire by a company not using the Florida Retirement System. What members of the community called into question was the legality of a person retiring (under the F lorida Retirement System) and then be able to be brought on as a consultant with the school district," S uperintendent Adams said. The rule of law is that the person cannot be an employee of, and be paid by a subsequent Florida R etirement System-using organization for six months, she said. "S ome people have strong opinions about this issue, but I wouldn't bring anything illegal or unethical forward," Superintendent Ad ams said. B efore the vote, school board member Claudia J imenez said she was glad the issue with Mr. Singer has been resolved. While the hiring of Mr. S inger may have been legal, his hire did not pass "the smell test," Ms. Jimenez said. S he said this experience has taught her to ask more questions and scrutinize carefully issues with potential conflict of interests and ask for more background information. School board member Jeff P egler also said the decision to hire Mr. Singer was the only decision in the past two years as a school board member he "agonized over after it was made." Going around state law made him uneasy and revisiting the issue was in the best interest of the school district, so he was happy the superintendent brought the issue back up. "I think this is the right thing to do at this time in this district," Mr. Pegler said. The goal with Mr. Singer had been to fill a very large gap in the human resources department while a national search for someone to fill the position permanently was undertaken, said S uperintendent Adams. The position, which is an assistant superintendent position, has been vacant since July. S uperintendent Adams said an ad has been placed in a national industry magazine that will be published prior to the Christmas break and she is hopeful many candidates will submit their names and resumes for consideration. Mr. Singer was unavailable for comment at press time. F or more information about Indian River County School District matters,visit www.indianriverschools.or g.

A ccording to city attorney Wayne Coment, in 1984 an ordinance was passed to allow residents in the Riomar community to drive their golf carts on certain streets for the purpose of traveling to the golf course. The ordinance was never r epealed, which means it is still legal, but somehow the r ule was never put into the codebook, which is what the police department goes by when enforcing the law. This has caused confusion between members of the community who have been around for more than 25 y ears and police officers with no knowledge of the longstanding ordinance Mr. Coment said. In a 3-2 vote, the city council directed the city manager to update and r evise the ordinance to officially make it known where the golf carts can be driven. The draft ordinance initially brought forward by Mr. O'Connor would repeal the old ordinance and implement an updated new one and also amend the city code to include the r ule. The ordinance is scheduled to come before the council for a first reading and public discussion on J an. 8. A list of the proposed designated streets can be found in the above sidebar. J oe Collins, representative of the country club, said the permission to drive carts on city streets is an integral part of how the country club operates. He strongly encouraged the council to update and implement the ordinance to avoid any further confusion and to allow residents peace of mind they are not doing something illegal. Ma y or Craig Fletcher said he had "grave reservations" about turning Vero Beach into a golf cart community, but he recognized the history with Riomar Country Club and would most likely approve the ordinance once presented. Ve ro B each Police Chief D avid Curry said he would r ecommend moving forward with the revised ordinance to allow golf carts in certain areas of Riomar, but would not be in favor of extending any further permission to areas outside the golf course community. This is not for people who want to drive and shop," Chief Curry said. V ice Mayor Tracy Carroll said she saw the issue was a benefit to some residents and not others and was not in favor of moving forward with an ordinance at all.

One of the pitfalls web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official Windows messages. If yo u' ve surfed the web at all then you've seen them. They look like regular W indows dialogue boxes complete with the red, r ound X that denotes a W indows error and an ominous message like "Your system is dangerously low on resources" or "Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers." U sually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when you click it? Nine out of 10 times, you are brought to a website selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, right-hand corner. Y ou know, the minimize, r estore and close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, r estore or close the ad. U sually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking "close" (or any of the other buttons) will give you the same result as if you had clicked the fake OK" button. Arghh! It's infuriating. I once encountered a web ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: "I nternet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate y our computer and YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer." Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Wow, I thought to myself. I wonder how many people are falling for this one? And then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the user's hard drive. Nothing r eally wrong with that; yo u' d get the same results typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked "go," but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? That's low. It 's amazing these companies don't get sued out of existence for deceptive advertising. What's even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake "Windows" ads is garbage anyway that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this week on unscrupulous advertisers. Now let's go ov er a few things to look for so you won't get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking it's a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, AO L' s browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that it's an ad, and if you click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what you were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when you are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse over a link in your w eb browser, the URL or address where that link will take you, is shown in the status bar before you click.

I know that freedom of speech is being applied here, but really, is it necessary to give every moron a soapbox? The person, and I use that term lightly, who has continued, on a weekly basis, to bash the residents of Fort Pierce, needs to be muted. He does not help society by ridiculing those who live in the northwest section of the city. N ot everyone there is a hoodlum, has baby after baby and is uneducated as this writer would have everyone believe. It makes me wonder who this ignoramus really is He or she needs to be monitored by the FBI. He should be reported to the authorities so they can keep him in a database for lunatics. When someone takes aim at a particular section of society with such hatred, it should be brought to someone's attention. There's no place for hate and bigotry in our world. Instead of secluding us, why don't you go find an island somewhere and stay there? We the residents of Fort Pierce, are not a hateful bunch. Yes, there's crime. Yes, there's poverty. But we are no different than any other city. We do try to help our children. There are organizations and members of society who are trying to help those who want to find a way out and who want to make a difference. Y ou, the writer with so much hatred, should go to church, go to a homeless shelter and attend a candlelight vigil for one of our children who have become a victim. We're not the useless souls you portray us to be. We are, for the most part, a peaceful, loving society. We would give you water if you were thirsty. We 'd feed you if you were hungry. What I know is that you wouldn't do the same. M erry Christmas and peace to all.Are city woes preventable?Bo y, have I read enough of the shootings that happen in northern Fort Pierce. Bad drug deals, young adults with firearms, all for that quick dollar. He re 's one most likely not going to happen: build a giant wall around these areas and let these communities govern themselves, and if the people are afraid to come out of their homes then let them also live with the chaos, as well. This is all the byproduct of a weak upbringing and individuals wanting to make money but don't have even a high-school education. I've seen in a few parts in the country where I have lived and in every case, it's the impoverished community that always wants the local government to resolve the problems that the parents brought on while living off that government paycheck. It boils down to poverty and lack of education. No one told these people to drop out of school. Last time I checked, public school was free, paid for with tax dollars. The city of Fort Pierce is a nice city, just suffering from the tarnish of hoodlums who don't have respect for even each other. Take your drama and disrespect to somewhere else. Mov e on. Oh, and take your parents with you. They sure did a fine job of raising you.Fix the storm drainsA reader recently suggested that this would be a good time to work on the storm drains. I couldn't agree more. We live in the northeast River Park area of Port St. Lucie in a section that is bordered by Airoso on the west, Emerson on the east, Surfside on the south and Sagamore on the north. On our particular street, Jordan Terrace, several of the corner houses have storm drains that are so overgrown that they are not visible. Other drains in the area are broken. Over the last two years I have called several times, to be told that, "we'll get someone out there," only to have nothing done. I would love to see this situation addressed so that when the spring rains come, followed by hurricane season, we won't have a problem. I'm sure this is an issue in other areas besides mine, and I would sincerely appreciate it if this problem would be re solved in a timely fashion. W atch government sizeThe tendency of government is to grow. It can become unlimited in size and scope. Especially when controlled by D emocrats, it tends to be patronizing, overprotective and destructive of individual liberty. That's why America does not have a king. We are, or should be, governed by our Constitution. A pparently, President Obama does not want to be bound by the chains of the Constitution. If he is able to break these chains, our freedoms are lost.T ruth about attacksH illary Clinton and President Obama have finally admitted that they knew from the beginning that the Benghazi attacks, which killed four brave Americans, were planned in advance. What has not been admitted is that the administration's untruths were based on this nation's coming elections. Voters we re naive and foolish enough to believe this deception. Editor's note: This from F actCheck.org: "W e cannot say whether the administration was intentionally misleading the public.We cannot prove intent.There is also more information to come both from the FBI,which is conducting an investigation,and Congress,which has been holding hearings. "But,at this point,we do know that Obama and others in the administration were quick to cite the anti-Muslim video as the underlying cause for the attack in Benghazi that killed four U.S.diplomats,including U.S.Ambassador to Libya Chris St evens.And they were slow to acknowledge it was a premeditated terrorist attack,and they downplayed reports that it might have been."Relief money re-routedHow could anybody oppose the Supplemental Terrorist R elief Act? P assed immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks, it was supposed to help small retailers where sales were hurt in lower M anhattan. As usual, however, bureaucrats twisted the original intent. M oney went to Connecticut, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and even Ohio and Georgia. The fingers of devious politicians are sticky. Best to keep their hands off our money. Editor's note: The only evidence we could find regarding the r eader's claim came from a column written by John Stossel in A ugust 2006 on the website To wnhall.com .M r. S tossel is host of a Fox News program and an author.In the column,he wrote that the money from the Supplemental Terrorist Relief Act went to Dunkin Donuts shops in Connecticut,Pennsylvania,Georgia,Vermont and Ohio.Still a big spenderIf anybody had any doubts before, President Obama has proven himself to be an outrageous, big government, big spender. While he says he wants a "balanced approach" his words are patent nonsense. When he claims to favor compromise, hold your nose. It's a terrible smell.We c an't be like GreeceMo re than one of every four workers in Greece is unemployed. M ost of our politicians in Washington are asleep at the wheel. One, however, Congressman John Mica, has seen our future and warned that we do not want to become like Greece. It is clear, he stated, that government cannot put a chocolate on every pillow and tuck us all in every night.The primrose pathB lacks and Latinos are being led down the primrose path by leftists who tell them they deserve an entire array of benefits paid for by other people. The prospect of government bureaucrats dictating our health care is frightening. In addition to health care, minorities get all kinds of "stuff" just because they live here. There is no road to prosperity and happiness other than education, diligence and prudent planning. Anything else is the siren song of dependency. Got something to say?

TREASURE COAST A little more than a year ago, J ohn Moore and Kevin B arry, partners in the Vero B each based Rossway M oore Swan Attorneys At Law, attended an entrepreneur summit at the Richardson Center located at Indian River State College in Vero Beach. The purpose of the event, organized by Michael Corbit of Workforce Solutions and Jan Pagano of Indian River State College, was to present entrepreneurs from across the Research C oast (Indian River, St. L ucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties), and showcase their innovative technologies. The seven entrepreneur presenters included a variety of start-up and earlystage companies representing an array of industries. It didn't take long before Mr. Moore and Mr. Barry, together with Russell Bjorkman, approached the college with their desire to help form a nonprofit, priv ate sector foundation that could launch a business plan competition for similar companies along the R esearch Coast. C ombining their vision, talents and investments in the community, the R esearch Coast Principium F oundation, a nonprofit entity, was born and plans for a business plan competition were initiated. The purpose of the foundation is to dedicate and promote the development of economic opportunity by facilitating interaction between professionals, investors, supporting organizations and the emerging business community of Florida's R esearch Coast. Through the business plan competition, they seek to bring together all r elevant elements in support of business development and by creating jobs on the Research Coast. In addition to Mr. Barry Mr. Moore and Mr. Bjorkman, an international corporate attorney,the other foundation directors include Michael Corbit, r egional talent acquisition manager at Workforce So lutions, Vinny Olmstead, founder of Vocap Ventures, Ms. Pagano, associate dean of administrative services at Indian River State College and Ed Tighe, a retired entrepreneur and independent trustee, who also acted as a mentor and a judge for the 2011 entrepreneur summit. S ince the competition was announced over the summer, a number of applications have already been received. The foundation is looking for entrepreneurs and companies with innovative ideas that are interested in participating. Applicants from all industries are welcome to apply. B onus points, however, will be given for companies that are operating in one of the qualified target industries which include clean tech, life sciences, information technology, aviation/aerospace, logistics and distribution, defense and homeland security, financial/professional services and manufacturing. There will be a progression of applicant eliminations prior to the March 21 public event at IRSC in Ve ro B each where the final applicants will make their presentation in a "Shark T ank" type analysis of plans and ideas in front of a panel of experts. The winner will receive a cash prize, the title of inaugural champion, as well as a package of free legal, accounting and mentoring advice. The second-place winner will also receive a cash prize and all presenters will enjoy the ability to market and expose their company to the attending, interested audience. The deadline to apply is J an. 7. Applications can be found by visiting www.rcbiznovation.com. This is an opportunity for companies throughout the four-county region to identify and showcase their businesses," said Mr. C orbit. All applicants must upload their submission package online by visiting rc biznovation.com.

Rick Scott. F or the past 60 years, Girard E quipment has developed and grown to accommodate the demands of society. Earning the Exporter Excellence A ward is the best evidence we have that banishing the word can't' from our corporate vocabulary was a truly brilliant decision," said Timothy Gi ra r d, GEI president. Mo ving forward, Girard Equipment is well poised to continue to increase its export business. C onsidering that emerging energy producing countries around the world are now practicing safer transportation methods, the designs and products of GEI are being eagerly adopted. Mr. Girard trusts that subscribing to the belief that the American worker is still a valued asset means that America's best days are ahead of us and not behind. As he accepted the award at the governor's mansion in Tallahassee, he recognized the community support received from the Indian River C ounty Chamber of Commerce, especially from Helene Castletine, director of economic development, as well as elected county officials who have taken great interest in seeing the constant growth of GEI's business continues unabated.

state legislature is scheduled to vote on a bill this session that would allow the D epartment of Agriculture to give tax collectors authority to collect the information needed to apply for or renew the permits for carrying concealed w eapons, said Carole Jean Jo r dan, Indian River County tax collector. Once the bill has been approved, there would be a few pilot sites for the program to be tested and Indian River County would be one of those sites, she said. C urrently, individuals interested in the permit must make an appointment at one of eight Department of Agriculture regional offices, or to the main office in Tallahassee, and fill out an application. The application includes payment, fingerprinting, a photograph, and electronic paperwork for identification and background information. P eople can also mail in the information after getting the photo and fingerprints done at approved locations. The problem with the current process is that it often takes two or more months to get an appointment, Ms. Jordan said. By opening the tax collectors' offices to the permit application process, for a small convenience fee, constituents can receive their permits in a much shorter amount of time and not have to drive to a regional office several counties away to get their information in the system, Ms. Jordan said. The tax collectors offices have taken on the tasks of issuing driver licenses, tags and renewals, so collecting and handling the private information of individuals securely and safely is already in place. "I t would add to the onestop shopping that we can offer the public," Ms. Jordan said. The tax collector's office would be the information gatherer only, the final approval for the applications would still come from T allahassee, she said. Ma r ion Hammer, current lobbyist for and past president of the NRA, said the current process takes much too long. Legislators should r ecognize this idea will streamline the process, and because the applications are ever increasing, the more help the Department of Agriculture can get, the better. In 2009, applications for concealed weapon permits skyrocketed and the numbers have been increasing ever since, Ms. Hammer said. There are a variety of reasons for the increase, including politics and further regulations about carr ying weapons in vehicles, but no matter the reason, fixing the process is necessary, she said. The convenience fee for the local permit applications will be relatively small, likely to be less than it would cost for an individual to drive around town getting the fingerprints and photo and then driving to a r egional office, Ms. Jordan said. If approved in this legislative session, permits could be available in Indian River C ounty in June 2013.

The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 6. Cliff Partlow staff photographerVERO BEACH When a modern invention is powerful enough to stop time itself, the possibilities are endless for those with creative eyes. The art of photography is interesting and beautiful because it takes a snapshot of reality and highlights it beyond what the human eye generally sees, said photo enthusiast George Bollis Jr. Mr. Bollis was one of dozens of photographers who entered the Indian River Photo Club's 2012 juried print exhibition at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, and he won first place in two categories.

DINING & ENTERTAINMENT Ceremony featured new holiday tree, children's artwork INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Indian River Medical C enter's 22nd anniversary of the auxiliary's "Tree of Lights" ceremony on Dec. 6 featured a new green technology holiday tree and the artwork from 30 children ages 5-12 on display. The auxiliary of IRMC purchased a new 24-foot Oregon Cascade fir tree to r eplace the original tree purchased in 1995, said B ob Michael, director of facility services. The tree has 1,360 LED C7 lamps, more energy efficient than the older incandescent-style bulbs. The new tree uses only 680 watts of power, while the older tree consumed 7,200 watts to power up 1,200 incandescent lamps. Other highlights of the event include a solo vocal performance by 13-year-old G abrielle McFall, daughter of Megan McFall, clinical coordinator for IRMC's partners in women's health program and artwork from IRMC's annual children's holiday art contest on display at the after-party. All of the four winning artists were present to r eceive a prize after a random drawing and help light the tree. The "Tree of Lights" plays a dual role, as it heralds in the holidays while at the same time, raises money for worthwhile projects. The Tree of Lights is used to purchase necessary equipment and education programs for IRMC's women's health care team to continue to provide quality healthcare to the community.

Patten Community Gallery in the Hazel Education Wing of the museum. In the color-fauna category, "Enlightened," Mr. B ollis' photo of a white peacock butterfly took home the top prize. N ature's colors and patterns, especially butterflies, often inspire him to find the perfect shot. "P hotography basically is a way to see things we don't pay attention to very often. Be fore I got into photography, I knew butterflies existed, but I didn't know the species, the colors of them all. Same with birds; we tend to see the herons and the sand hill cranes, but we miss out on the small birds," Mr. Bollis said. Mr. Bollis is an architect by trade and his other hobbies include watercolor painting, planting butterfly-attracting gardens, hiking and bird watching. H is second first-place prize was in the still life category for his photograph, "S ewing Wild Oats." The photo is of stitching on a wild sea oats plant with a background of black felt, a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of the familiar clichŽ, "sowing wild oats." "I look for humor and creativity in my photographs, too," Mr. Bollis said. Another first-place winner, David Garrett, enjoys photographing people and capturing their essence in an image. "I see something in their eye, something in their smile and I want to take a picture," Mr. Garrett said. "I try to bring out the true self of someone, what's r eally inside them," he said. H is first-place photograph "Homeless," is of a Civil War re-enactor playing the part of a vagrant in Fort Pierce. "H e had so much character in his face. He played the part so well, something just struck me and I had to take a picture," Mr. Garrett said. Sp orts action photography was his livelihood several years ago, but now he finds great satisfaction in portraits and candid portraits of people. The Indian River Photo Club's juried exhibition includes works from members of the club as well as non-members, both professional and amateur.

BEHINDTOMMYSTRANSMISSIONS With the holidays in full swing many of us are going to purchase one or more of the colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia .These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If you have pets that have a habit of chewing your plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the real thing and you can reuse them year after y ear. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe Using mistletoe as a decoration is a tradition that has been carried out for centuries. Du r ing Pagan times, troops at war who met in the presence of mistletoe were r equired to lay down their w eapons and unite in a day of truce. Mistletoe was also used during rituals that celebrated the winter solstice. It was used as a symbol of the eventual r eturn of the sun. In Christianity, mistletoe has been used as symbol of love ever since the Middle Ages. During this era, mistletoe was blessed by a priest and all those who walked under it were kissed as a sign of friendship and all bad feelings were extinguished. In modern times, the tradition of being kissed under the mistletoe is still in full force. A trip to your local holiday shop will usually yield both live and artificial versions of this popular holiday plant. The "live" mistletoe plant is toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of small children and pets. As long as it is not ingested, this plant can still create a warm feeling of friendship to all who walk under it. Li ve Christmas trees Although live trees are the main symbol of this great day, they can pose hazards if not handled and cared for properly. The main hazard from live trees is fire. When you first bring y our tree home, be sure to cut a slice off the bottom of y our tree before placing it in its new location. This will help the tree to absorb water faster, which will greatly lengthen its useful life. There are many products on the market that are labeled as "tree savers" that are useful in helping the tree absorb water faster and over a longer period of time. It is important when choosing the location for y our new tree to place it away from any heat sources or sparks. In the past, using faulty Christmas lights that either shorted out or sparked caused most treer elated fires. In addition, lights that produce too much heat can be a problem on a tree that has been in use for an extended period of time. T oday, one of the best ways to stay safe is to use the new LED lights that are available for decorating. They look great and besides r unning way cooler then other lights, they also save y ou green. They use a fraction of the power of conventional lighting methods. In addition, use only UL approved extension cords and power strips. Using LED lights will not create as much as a load on your extension cords and power adapters. W ith the availability of a large selection of artificial trees, for many people this will be a great alternative to a live tree. Most are now in three pieces with all the lights already attached and they last year after year saving you lots of money ov er time. As you can see, with some common sense practices, you can stay safe this holiday season. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

gency Management in its statewide public awareness campaign. Final digital videos should be submitted via the FDEM video portal at www.KidsGetAP lan.com. All entries must be uploaded by Jan. 18. Winning entries will be announced Feb. 1. F or complete poster and video PSA contest rules and topic information,visit www.FloridaDisaster.org/S WAW or www.KidsGetAP lan.com. With all of the uproar regarding the USGA and R&A's decision to implement a rule banning the anchored" stroke from the game beginning in January 2016, I began to wonder just how many of us truly follow the rules of golf. W ith the number of golfers using an anchored stroke to enjoy playing the game for fun, will they even care what the lords at the USGA and R&A do? I would bet that one would be hard-pressed to find any one person playing golf outside a sanctioned competition with rules officials and the like watching over them who follow the rules to the letter and intent of the law. We r ecreational golfers break the rules all the time. We move our drive in the fairway from a divot that was left behind. We move our ball off a root so we don't break a club or our wrist. We hardly ever r eturn to the tee to re-hit after finding our ball outof-bounds. We give 2-foot putts to speed things up. We even take mulligans. Wi th all this in mind, I think it's time we have a set of rules for recreational golfers. We need them! There are three things that hurt our beloved game. It's expensive, it takes a long time to play and most of all, it's too difficult. If y ou owned a golf course, would you really care if the golfers are playing by the rules or would it matter more that they are having fun, enjoying the game and filling up the tee sheets? The results of a recent Google survey, based on nearly 7,000 respondents shows that 61percent of golfers admit to occasionally bending the rules. An additional 12 percent admit to always bending the rules while only 27 percent claim to have always played by the letter of the rules. In addition, the same survey shows an overwhelming majority of golfers consider themselves "recreational golfers" and have no desire to follow the same rules that professionals do. Fe w er than 15 percent keep an official USGA handicap and an equal amount have no idea what a handicap is. Of those responding to the survey, 78 percent said they play the game for fun, nothing more, nothing less. The remainder admit to playing by the rules because they enjoy the challenge it presents, for work or because they are aspiring to become professionals. The golf industry is facing some interesting challenges. According to the National Golf Foundation, golf rounds fell from 518 million to 475 million in the past decade. The numbers have declined in each of the past five years. M any surveys done by the NGF have shown those leaving the game have given three main reasons for their departure: high cost, excessive time needed to play and inconvenient rules. The Google survey shows what many, including myself, have thought for y ears. Those of us who enjoy this game are fine with the idea of playing with "recreational" equipment. We don't mind the implementation of balls that want to go straight and clubs that help poor swings. Why should this game only be enjoyed by those talented enough to play it well or with enough time and money to devote to honing their skills to make it so? W ith that in mind, I think we should have a set of "Recreational Rules for Golf." They should be simple and straightforward. The best part of these rules should be that as long as everyone in the four-some or group agrees with what they are at the start of the round, and it doesn't slow down your play at the expense of others or damage the course, it doesn't matter what they are. The rules being used by a group of buddies five groups ahead could not matter less to me and my bunch. Nor should our r ecreational rules matter to you. W ouldn't manufacturers love to be able to take the r eins off their designers and have them make clubs that help the poor golfer? I'm sure if they sold enough of them, they wouldn't mind there being two sets of rules or nonconforming clubs. It 's time we stand up and be heard. It's time to save our game and make our enjoyment of it paramount.

determine changes in classroom management skills. In addition to current teachers participating in the research project, college-level education students at IRSC also use the system to practice classr oom management methods. The TeachLive simulator allows teachers or teacher candidates to interact with r eal-time student avatars who exhibit the most challenging behaviors of middle-school students through a projection system. The student avatars are controlled by "interactors," professionals trained in voice impersonations and developmentally appropriate behaviors, r esulting in unscripted scenarios, including disr uptions, giggling and non-speaking outbursts. To create a realistic classroom environment, the students represent the five most common categories of behaviors common to middle school students as classified by psychologists: S ean. Always seeking affirmation (with a perpetually raised hand). Maria. S hying away from teachers and peers; Cindy (CJ). Constantly testing authority. Ke vin. Looking for affirmation from other students, even if they misbehave. E d. Shy but willing. "T eachLive provides a unique opportunity for teachers and education students to react to all types of classroom behavior, practice the best classr oom management methods and positively impact student learning," said Ma r ta Cronin, director of the IRSC School of Education. IRSC offers bachelors in education degree programs in middle and high school math, middleschool science, highschool biology and exceptional student education. St udents gain a firm foundation in all aspects of teaching practice and complete students teaching at local schools during their senior year.

3IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG Belly dancingTRY NEW THINGS SEBASTIAN The exotic movements of belly dancing can be fun to watch. Actually doing the movements y ourself can provide benefits beyond feeling sexier and something completely new to introduce to an exercise r outine or to spice up your weekly schedule. "I t' s a low impact activity and it improves coordination and posture," said Angela Vasconellos, a belly dancing and Zumba instructor. "Everyone at any age can try it because it's a lightcardio exercise." When belly dancing, there is no need to show your stomach, a problem many get over to try belly dancing. F or Phyllis Schneider, a mother of two and a student of Ms. Vasconellos, belly dancing was as much of an exercise as it was a time to spend time with friends. "I t makes me feel youthful," Mrs. Schneider said. "I did feel sore in places, but it was unique parts of you that you don't always use. It was as much of a physical exercise for me as it was a mental exercise." B elly dancing exercises are specially tailored for the female body. B elly dancing was first used in cultures along the Arabian Peninsula. W omen formed groups and dressed in cover ups, dancing among themselves. M uch is the same at the classes, where clients are advised to wear comfortable clothing and can either w ear sneakers or socks. "A lot of people sometimes have a misconception of the true meaning of belly dancing because it has become so Americanized," Ms. Vasconellos said. And that's why some were afraid to try the dance. The dancers also wear cloth wrapped skirts with metal coins attached, called coin skirts, during the exercises, which accentuate the movements with the sounds as they shimmy and shake. Classes are available through Ms. V asconellos and through private and semi-private classes. Ms. Vasconellos also teaches Z umba as well as Pilates.

4IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG "If they're on the right plan and they have the right accountability and motivation, they can lose weight."Phil Rachko Personal training manager at The Jungle Club VERO BEACH For many people, a resolution that is made and broken most is losing weight. On Jan. 1 the motivation is fresh and alive, and following the workout plan is easy. Then, by the middle of J anuary, the motivation starts slipping away. By the end of January, the r esults aren't quite up to expectation and another resolution goes down the drain. S ound familiar? P hil Rachko, the personal training manager at The Jungle Club, a fitness center in Vero Beach, says there are several aspects to losing weight. "O ne is eating correctly, followed by proper aerobic conditioning, proper strength training, supplementation to make up for the lack of nutrients because they're eating a lot less food, accountability and motivation," he said. All of these tips are part of the process when hiring a personal trainer to help with clients' goals. The personal trainer will discuss the lifestyle of the client and how best to lose w eight, as well as devise a workout plan to best facilitate weight loss. "Y ou don't go to a golf course with a set of golf clubs to learn how to play golf and expect to get very far," Mr. R achko said. "You ask the experts. S ame goes for working out and losing w eight, so you don't get injured and if y ou get results fast enough, you get excited about the potential. That is why you hire a personal trainer." Mr. Rachko also said there are alternatives to hiring a personal trainer if yo u' re on an extreme budget. R esources such as Weight Watchers and following "The Zone Diet" book help, but those trying to lose weight still need help. "I f they're on the right plan and they have the right accountability and motivation, they can lose weight," he said. "If they're not, it's not going to work and there is something wrong with one of those three elements." Ca r dio can be a good place to start with workouts, which is a workout that involves using large muscle groups over a specified period of time. He also suggests cutting out bad foods from the diet such as sugar and fat, white flour and eating five to six meals a day. When you take in a small amount of food, your body will not store that," Mr. Rachko said. "Your body will store food in response to taking in too many calories at one time. If y ou eat 2,000 calories a day and break it down into 400 calories a meal, your body breaks it down and doesn't store it." The staff at The Jungle Club has several different personal trainers to help along with any weight loss goal.

MARTIN COUNTY In the 1960s, smoking cigarettes was heralded as sexy and provocative. A few decades later, it is a habit that few consider sexy and the side effects are far from it, includeing cancer. Dr Kirk Voelker and Dr. Barry Hummel created the Quit Doc Research and Education Foundation, dedicated to reducing the number of deaths in the United States from tobacco use and abuse. The foundation has state funding from the Florida Department of H ealth to operate in 11 counties, two of which are Indian River and Martin counties. "W e' re trying to prevent young people from ever starting and to help promote adult tobacco cessation," Dr. H ummel said. The first step in quitting can often be the hardest, but Dr. Hummel said most people go about it the wrong way. "F irst and most important is to set a quit date that is a little down the road," Dr Hummel said. "Set it up a few w eeks down the road. Get support from friends and colleagues and let them know what is coming. You might be grouchy and that you will need help." He also suggested to talking with y our doctor., Tthere can beare medications that can help, particularly with nicotine withdrawal. As with most lifestyle changes, teaming up with someone is the best. "I f there is someone you can quit with, quit with them," Dr. Hummel said. "If you're going through it together then if one of you has a weak moment, they can lend support in an emotional way." When people quit, and go through the few days of nicotine withdrawal, there are still issues that you could face that triggers could still trip you up, Dr. Hummel calls triggers.' "I t' s like when you pour a cup of coffee and get into the car. It's based on each person's personal patterns," he said. "W e suggest that you change up y our routine going into your quit date. When you get in your car, lock your cigarettes in the trunk or smoke with the opposite hand or buy cigarettes from a different place, buy a different brand or smoke in a different place in y our home." After a few months, triggers are usually stress related. The first of the year is a common time for people to quit smoking. "A bout 70 percent of smokers would like to quit at some point and this is the one time of the year that it gets to every ones attention," Dr. Hummel said. "It's a gentle reminder to people who are interested in quitting smoking."

In the past few years, Americans have done a pretty good job of whittling down their debt load. If yo u' re in this group, you may now have a chance to use your lower level of indebtedness to your advantage by investing for the future. C onsider the numbers: in 2007, just before the financial crisis, the country's household debt service ratio was about 14 percent. (The debt service ratio is the ratio of debt payments, including mortgages and consumer debt, to disposable personal income.) But by 2012, this figure had dipped below 11 percent, the lowest level since 1994. These figures are national averages, but they do translate into real-life savings for many of us. If you're in this group that is, if you've lowered your debt payments noticeably what should you do with this "found" money? Of course, you could spend it on material objects, which, in some cases, may make your life more pleasant today. But you'd probably be better off by devoting your financial resources to y our goals for tomorrow, such as college for your children and, eventually, a comfortable retirement lifestyle for y ourself. C onsequently, you want may want to consider these suggestions: I ncrease your contributions to your r etirement plan. Tr y to put more money into your employer-sponsored r etirement plan, such as a 401(k), 403(b) or 457(b). Your contributions are typically made with pretax dollars, so the more you invest, the lower your taxable income. Plus, your earnings can grow on a tax-deferred basis. F ully fund your IRA. Y ou can put in up to $5,000 per year (as of 2012) to a traditional or Roth IRA or $6,000 if yo u' re 50 or older. A traditional IRA grows tax-deferred, while a Roth IRA can grow tax-free, provided you meet certain conditions. Fi ll in "gaps"in your financial strategy. W ith a little extra money each month, can you find ways to fill in the gaps in your financial strategy? For example, do you have sufficient life insurance and disability income insurance? Or can you add some investments that can help diversify y our overall portfolio? While diversification can't guarantee profits or protect against loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility on your holdings. B uild an emergency fund. It 's a good idea to build an emergency fund containing six to 12 months' worth of living expenses. Without such a fund, y ou may be forced to dip into longterm investments to pay for unexpected costs, such as a large bill from the doctor or a major car repair. Keep the money in a liquid, low-risk account. E stablish a 529 plan. If y ou have children or grandchildren who you would like to help get through college, y ou might want to contribute to a 529 plan. Your earnings grow tax-free, provided withdrawals are used for qualified higher-education expenses. P lus, your contributions may be deductible from your state taxes. (Be aware, though, that withdrawals used for purposes other than qualified education expenses may be subject to federal and state taxes, plus a 10 percent penalty.) R educing your debt level can remove some stress from your life. And you'll gain even more benefits from debt r eduction by using your savings to speed your progress toward your important financial goals.

E dwin Perkins, pharmacist and o wner, emphasizes the importance of individualized service to his customers on a daily basis. F or more than 20 years, clients have been treated like family, greeted by name and helped as quickly as possible. "Y ou're not a number here. We know our regulars by name and we try not to make people wait too long," Mr. Perkins said. The pharmacy routinely places orders that arrive next day and often makes deliveries to physicians' offices and clients who have trouble leaving the house. Extra employees were hired to be able to make the deliveries a regular part of client care. "W e don't have the hours of a chain drugstore, but our customers understand that and don't mind, but they value our personal service," Mr. Perkins said. Emergency services are also available, he said. Pe r kins Pharmacy honors most insurance companies, including M edicaid, Medicare and worker's compensation. Though the wait time at Perkins P harmacy may be relatively short, customers can still squeeze in a little browsing for unique gift ideas in the store. D ee Dee Perkins, Mr. Perkins' wife, handles the gift shop side of the pharmacy and chooses highquality items she would feel comfortable giving as gifts. "W e have an order book behind the counter for drug-related orders and we have one for gift-related orders," Mrs. Perkins said. "W e want to carry unique gift items you don't find often in stores. We have more boutique items than drugstores usually carry and we have different lines, with limited quantities so you're not going to see it anywhere else," Mrs. Perkins said. C ollegiate-themed bags, plates, candles and more dominate one aisle in the shop, while summer colors brighten another area and r hinestone-detailed leather purses and wallets are the focal point in another area. Mrs. Perkins looks for quality gift items made in the U.S. and whenever possible, she brings them into the store. Cindy Stillwagon is the designated gift consultant for the store. She often helps customers choose gifts based on information about the person receiving it. "W e also offer free gift wrap all y ear round. A lot of places don't do that anymore," Ms. Stillwagon said.

8IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG The well-traveled road You've lost your family. You know they were in that small town in Georgia or Virginia or maybe New York, but where did they come from and where did they go? This is where you go from your traditional genealogy research to all those other subjects I've been telling you to study: history, geography, politics and the financial conditions of the times. R ead the local history and study what was going on when your ancestor first appeared in their present location. Was it the area being settled by land grants or bounty land given for military service, during the 1849 Gold Rush, or the expansion of the railroad? Where did the other residents come from? Chances are, your family moved with acquaintances. S ome families stayed in one area and others moved every generation. M igration can go in almost any pattern. Sometimes everyone in the family moved at once, taking the elderly parents with them. Often, they stayed until the parents died, then all the children took their families and moved south or west, looking for newer and greener fields, either going together, or scattering across the country. They may have moved one at a time, with either the oldest or y oungest staying behind with ma or pa and keeping the farm or settling the estate before moving on them. S tarting in 1850, census records will give the birth state of each individual. This tells you if they have moved from the state where they were born. The 1870 census tells if the parents were foreign born. By 1880, the census gives the birthplace of the parents of each person. This is valuable information in tracing the migration of the families. It will help decide if it was y our direct ancestor who started migrating or was it his parents or grandparents? M any deeds give the home of the grantee, or grantor, who may have moved on before he sold the land. While traveling down the migration r oute, look at these records for your ancestor's names. If you find their names, investigate thoroughly to build a case to determine if this, indeed, is your family. Check all the r ecords in the county, and compare the facts with those you know about y our family. When you determine that you are dealing with the same people, you will have completed another link in the chain. I can't stress enough the importance of researching everyone in the family, when trying to trace a dead-end family. Never stop with just researching the husband and wife who are your direct ancestors. Look at each child and who they married. Research the wife's parents. Each person in the family has a story and each person and place they came in contact with makes up a piece of the large puzzle of this family group. Chances are, they lived with, next door to or married a r elative or friend who migrated from the same community. When y ou find the origin of these lateral connections, look for your family in this same location. They traveled over established migration routes, from settlement GENEALOGY B RENDA K.

9IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG For more January firsts than I can remember, I have woken with firm resolve to cure all the ills that I have allowed to permeate my life. Ex cesses of all sorts, relationships, jobs and more were all fair game in my firm quest to make my world a better place. Discovering that I am my own worst enemy pertaining to limits of any kind I have decided this y ear will be different. I am making a list of non-resolutions and would like to share a few with you. Please feel free to join me, where applicable, and share with me any that you are doing this year or have benefited from in the past. I resolve not to drive to work with my head so full of reports and deadlines that I don't pull off the r oad to stand in awe and thank the big guy for the panoramic wonder of a whole sky filled with pinks, blues and oranges showing His promise of another day. And not to try to convince the nice officer that if the lawmakers would have seen this sunrise they would surely have made a sunrise watching lane' instead of an emergency lane and I was just ahead of my time. I resolve not to be so rushed that I don't take the time to share God's wonder with a granddaughter serving our country in a cold, bleak part of the U.S. through the wondrous technology of the phone thing that my children insisted I learn how to use. And not to get upset when she calls me for the fourth time to tell me I sent her another picture of my foot. I resolve not to keep an eye on my favorite TV show when a grandchild goes out of her way to come and see her Grammy and Poppi after night school, but to turn the blasted idiot box off and play 50s music while we stir up gingerbread because it makes her laugh. And try to come up with a better explanation of "Love Potion N umber Nine." I resolve not to dodge but to answer the phone cheerfully, listen intently and find comforting words every time a friend calls, even though I know the call will result in 20 minutes of her bemoaning her life since she broke up with a boyfriend. And never to utter the words, "I told you not to go out with a guy that has nine hamsters all named Bootsy!" I resolve not to speed up so I can get past the kitten that r uns to meet me as I power walk past her house, but to stop and enjoy a tiny soul that only wants a moment of attention. But refrain from sitting in the middle of the sidewalk and playing with her until it's too dark to continue my walk. I resolve to stop obsessing over the numbers on my scale and just concentrate on getting more exercise, eating healthier and cutting my sugar intake. I will begin this moment Or perhaps after the last of the leftover pie is gone (I can't be expected to throw it away can I?) And there's a whole tin of sugar cookies baked by my favorite little people. And all those candy canes. This one may be a tad difficult I pray everyone reading this and their families has a blessed and healthy New Year!New Year's resolutions, non-resolutionsROSE'S ROOM ROSE'S ROOM ROSE PADRICK 049463

to settlement, by waterways and trails, following those who went before them. The first of these r outes was a crude trail created in the 1600s, between Boston and New Yo rk that became the Boston Post R oad. Over the years, the network grew, connecting the colonies from M aine to Georgia. Then the roads began to inch westward and settlers traveled by the combination of waterways and trails, roads and r ailways across the country. Y our journey back down these trails will not be a fast one unless y ou have family stories to guide y ou. Y ou will have to search the r ecords all along the routes you think your family may have taken. S ometimes the trip was a steady move from point A to point B. Many times the families would find a locale they liked and stop for a generation or two, then move on. As I indicated earlier, some family members will move and some will stay, and you will find them moving back and forth, intermarrying with friends and cousins from each location.

Du ri ng the Dec. 14 school board meeting, the board voted 4-0 to terminate a contract with the law firm Bro wn, Garganese, Weiss and DAgresta for the consultant, Stuart Singer, who served the school board as the head of human r esources. The vote came after a recommendation by S uperintendent Fran A dams. School board member M att McCain was absent from the meeting. Mr. McC ain was the only school board member to vote no on Mr. Singers initial hire. S uperintendent Adams said the reason to terminate the contract with Mr. Singer was because he was not the r ight person for the job. M embers of the community, as well as a state senator, had called into question the hiring of Mr. Singer because he retired at the end of November from serving in the Osceola County School District where he was part of the Florida R etirement Systems deferred retirement option program. By law, participants in the DROP system collect a pension after retirement and cannot be hired and paid by another organization using the Florida Retirement System for six months after the r etirement date. By hiring Mr. Singer as a consultant through the law firm of Brown, Garganese, W eiss and DAgresta, the school board could pay the firm, who would then in turn, pay Mr. Singer.

Park directors had previously announced the park would close on Dec. 31. Dir ectors for Dogs For Life, the nonprofit that o wns the 4.5 acre parcel, said membership levels and incoming dues have decreased to the point where keeping the park open was no longer feasible. The park, which opened in 2002, will be put on the market in 2013, after a market study and appraisal is completed, directors said. I t s breaking our hearts to do it, but it is strictly a business decision, said S helly Ferger, founder and executive director of Dogs Fo r Life. W ith the anonymous donation, the members will have the opportunity to review their options and will discuss if there is any way to keep the park open, a press release said. Over the past few years, the membership of Dogs F or Life has plummeted, with the economy as a large factor, and without membership dues and donations, the park cannot be maintained, Ms. Fer ger said. M embership dues and donations were the only source of funding for the park as no city or county money has been received.

profit organization begun in the late 1990s that trains dogs for hearing and mobility assistance, as well as pet therapy. The organizations leaders are also certified to train dogs to serve veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder. The main mission of the organization was always to train service dogs, not to r un an off-leash dog park, though the membership has enjoyed its presence greatly, Ms. Ferger said. W e will be moving full steam ahead in training hearing, mobility and service dogs for veterans. We are definitely going to continue in that mission, she said. W e would love to see the park continue as a dog park property. We really hope that is the case, Ms. Fer ger added. Dogs For Life is fully accredited by Assistance Dogs International and currently goes to the homes of individuals to train the dogs. H earing dogs are trained to recognize door knocks, r inging telephones, alarm clocks and smoke alarms and alert their hearingimpaired owners. M obility assistance dogs can be trained to do a variety of tasks, based on the needs of their physically challenged owners, such as r ising from chairs and r etrieving fallen objects. Dogs For Life is one of the few organizations in F lorida with the Assistance Dogs International accreditation and can provide the necessary certification r equired for dogs owned by veterans to receive benefits through the veterans administration. One Dogs For Life trained-dog, Pia Pia, helps r etired Iraqi veteran Jim T aylor live his life with freedom and mental wellbeing, Ms. Ferger said. W e have many success stories which demonstrate that a task-trained dog can save an individuals life by being trained to tap a 911 emergency phone, Ms. Fer ger said in a press r elease. hire by a company not using the Florida Retirement System. What members of the community called into question was the legality of a person retiring (under the F lorida Retirement System) and then be able to be brought on as a consultant with the school district, S uperintendent Adams said. The rule of law is that the person cannot be an employee of, and be paid by a subsequent Florida R etirement System-using organization for six months, she said. S ome people have strong opinions about this issue, but I wouldnt bring anything illegal or unethical forward, Superintendent Ad ams said. B efore the vote, school board member Claudia J imenez said she was glad the issue with Mr. Singer has been resolved. While the hiring of Mr. S inger may have been legal, his hire did not pass the smell test, Ms. Jimenez said. S he said this experience has taught her to ask more questions and scrutinize carefully issues with potential conflict of interests and ask for more background information. School board member Jeff P egler also said the decision to hire Mr. Singer was the only decision in the past two years as a school board member he agonized over after it was made. Going around state law made him uneasy and revisiting the issue was in the best interest of the school district, so he was happy the superintendent brought the issue back up. I think this is the right thing to do at this time in this district, Mr. Pegler said. The goal with Mr. Singer had been to fill a very large gap in the human resources department while a national search for someone to fill the position permanently was undertaken, said S uperintendent Adams. The position, which is an assistant superintendent position, has been vacant since July. S uperintendent Adams said an ad has been placed in a national industry magazine that will be published prior to the Christmas break and she is hopeful many candidates will submit their names and resumes for consideration. Mr. Singer was unavailable for comment at press time. F or more information about Indian River County School District matters,visit www.indianriverschools.or g.

A ccording to city attorney Wayne Coment, in 1984 an ordinance was passed to allow residents in the Riomar community to drive their golf carts on certain streets for the purpose of traveling to the golf course. The ordinance was never r epealed, which means it is still legal, but somehow the r ule was never put into the codebook, which is what the police department goes by when enforcing the law. This has caused confusion between members of the community who have been around for more than 25 y ears and police officers with no knowledge of the longstanding ordinance Mr. Coment said. In a 3-2 vote, the city council directed the city manager to update and r evise the ordinance to officially make it known where the golf carts can be driven. The draft ordinance initially brought forward by Mr. OConnor would repeal the old ordinance and implement an updated new one and also amend the city code to include the r ule. The ordinance is scheduled to come before the council for a first reading and public discussion on J an. 8. A list of the proposed designated streets can be found in the above sidebar. J oe Collins, representative of the country club, said the permission to drive carts on city streets is an integral part of how the country club operates. He strongly encouraged the council to update and implement the ordinance to avoid any further confusion and to allow residents peace of mind they are not doing something illegal. May or Craig Fletcher said he had grave reservations about turning Vero Beach into a golf cart community, but he recognized the history with Riomar Country Club and would most likely approve the ordinance once presented. Ve ro Beach Police Chief D avid Curry said he would r ecommend moving forward with the revised ordinance to allow golf carts in certain areas of Riomar, but would not be in favor of extending any further permission to areas outside the golf course community. This is not for people who want to drive and shop, Chief Curry said.

One of the pitfalls web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official Windows messages. If yo u ve surfed the web at all then youve seen them. They look like regular W indows dialogue boxes complete with the red, r ound X that denotes a W indows error and an ominous message like Your system is dangerously low on resources or Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers. U sually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when you click it? Nine out of 10 times, you are brought to a website selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, right-hand corner. Y ou know, the minimize, r estore and close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, r estore or close the ad. U sually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking close (or any of the other buttons) will give you the same result as if you had clicked the fake OK button. Arghh! Its infuriating. I once encountered a web ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: I nternet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate y our computer and YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer. Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Wow, I thought to myself. I wonder how many people are falling for this one? And then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the users hard drive. Nothing r eally wrong with that; yo u d get the same results typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked go, but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? Thats low. It s amazing these companies dont get sued out of existence for deceptive advertising. Whats even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake Windows ads is garbage anyway that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this week on unscrupulous advertisers. Now lets go ov er a few things to look for so you wont get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking its a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, AO L s browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that its an ad, and if you click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what you were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when you are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse over a link in your w eb browser, the URL or address where that link will take you, is shown in the status bar before you click.

About 200 people took part in the two-day event, which included canoeing in the lit mangrove trail, shell ornament and holiday cookie making.How to avoid deceptive ads online COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY In response to recent opinionsIm shocked by the bigoted opinions that have been published lately. I know that freedom of speech is being applied here, but really, is it necessary to give every moron a soapbox? The person, and I use that term lightly, who has continued, on a weekly basis, to bash the residents of Fort Pierce, needs to be muted. He does not help society by ridiculing those who live in the northwest section of the city. N ot everyone there is a hoodlum, has baby after baby and is uneducated as this writer would have everyone believe. It makes me wonder who this ignoramus really is He or she needs to be monitored by the FBI. He should be reported to the authorities so they can keep him in a database for lunatics. When someone takes aim at a particular section of society with such hatred, it should be brought to someones attention. Theres no place for hate and bigotry in our world. Instead of secluding us, why dont you go find an island somewhere and stay there? We the residents of Fort Pierce, are not a hateful bunch. Yes, theres crime. Yes, theres poverty. But we are no different than any other city. We do try to help our children. There are organizations and members of society who are trying to help those who want to find a way out and who want to make a difference. Y ou, the writer with so much hatred, should go to church, go to a homeless shelter and attend a candlelight vigil for one of our children who have become a victim. Were not the useless souls you portray us to be. We are, for the most part, a peaceful, loving society. We would give you water if you were thirsty. We d feed you if you were hungry. What I know is that you wouldnt do the same. M erry Christmas and peace to all.Are city woes preventable?Bo y, have I read enough of the shootings that happen in northern Fort Pierce. Bad drug deals, young adults with firearms, all for that quick dollar. He re s one most likely not going to happen: build a giant wall around these areas and let these communities govern themselves, and if the people are afraid to come out of their homes then let them also live with the chaos, as well. This is all the byproduct of a weak upbringing and individuals wanting to make money but dont have even a high-school education. Ive seen in a few parts in the country where I have lived and in every case, its the impoverished community that always wants the local government to resolve the problems that the parents brought on while living off that government paycheck. It boils down to poverty and lack of education. No one told these people to drop out of school. Last time I checked, public school was free, paid for with tax dollars. The city of Fort Pierce is a nice city, just suffering from the tarnish of hoodlums who dont have respect for even each other. Take your drama and disrespect to somewhere else. Mov e on. Oh, and take your parents with you. They sure did a fine job of raising you.Fix the storm drainsA reader recently suggested that this would be a good time to work on the storm drains. I couldnt agree more. We live in the northeast River Park area of Port St. Lucie in a section that is bordered by Airoso on the west, Emerson on the east, Surfside on the south and Sagamore on the north. On our particular street, Jordan Terrace, several of the corner houses have storm drains that are so overgrown that they are not visible. Other drains in the area are broken. Over the last two years I have called several times, to be told that, well get someone out there, only to have nothing done. I would love to see this situation addressed so that when the spring rains come, followed by hurricane season, we wont have a problem. Im sure this is an issue in other areas besides mine, and I would sincerely appreciate it if this problem would be re solved in a timely fashion. W atch government sizeThe tendency of government is to grow. It can become unlimited in size and scope. Especially when controlled by D emocrats, it tends to be patronizing, overprotective and destructive of individual liberty. Thats why America does not have a king. We are, or should be, governed by our Constitution. A pparently, President Obama does not want to be bound by the chains of the Constitution. If he is able to break these chains, our freedoms are lost.T ruth about attacksH illary Clinton and President Obama have finally admitted that they knew from the beginning that the Benghazi attacks, which killed four brave Americans, were planned in advance. What has not been admitted is that the administrations untruths were based on this nations coming elections. Voters we re naive and foolish enough to believe this deception. Editors note: This from F actCheck.org: W e cannot say whether the administration was intentionally misleading the public.We cannot prove intent.There is also more information to come both from the FBI,which is conducting an investigation,and Congress,which has been holding hearings. But,at this point,we do know that Obama and others in the administration were quick to cite the anti-Muslim video as the underlying cause for the attack in Benghazi that killed four U.S.diplomats,including U.S.Ambassador to Libya Chris St evens.And they were slow to acknowledge it was a premeditated terrorist attack,and they downplayed reports that it might have been.Relief money re-routedHow could anybody oppose the Supplemental Terrorist R elief Act? P assed immediately after the Sept. 11 attacks, it was supposed to help small retailers where sales were hurt in lower M anhattan. As usual, however, bureaucrats twisted the original intent. M oney went to Connecticut, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and even Ohio and Georgia. The fingers of devious politicians are sticky. Best to keep their hands off our money. Editors note: The only evidence we could find regarding the r eaders claim came from a column written by John Stossel in A ugust 2006 on the website To wnhall.com.M r.S tossel is host of a Fox News program and an author.In the column,he wrote that the money from the Supplemental Terrorist Relief Act went to Dunkin Donuts shops in Connecticut,Pennsylvania,Georgia,Vermont and Ohio.Still a big spenderIf anybody had any doubts before, President Obama has proven himself to be an outrageous, big government, big spender. While he says he wants a balanced approach his words are patent nonsense. When he claims to favor compromise, hold your nose. Its a terrible smell.We c ant be like GreeceMo re than one of every four workers in Greece is unemployed. M ost of our politicians in Washington are asleep at the wheel. One, however, Congressman John Mica, has seen our future and warned that we do not want to become like Greece. It is clear, he stated, that government cannot put a chocolate on every pillow and tuck us all in every night.The primrose pathB lacks and Latinos are being led down the primrose path by leftists who tell them they deserve an entire array of benefits paid for by other people. The prospect of government bureaucrats dictating our health care is frightening. In addition to health care, minorities get all kinds of stuff just because they live here. There is no road to prosperity and happiness other than education, diligence and prudent planning. Anything else is the siren song of dependency. Got something to say?

TREASURE COAST A little more than a year ago, J ohn Moore and Kevin B arry, partners in the Vero B each based Rossway M oore Swan Attorneys At Law, attended an entrepreneur summit at the Richardson Center located at Indian River State College in Vero Beach. The purpose of the event, organized by Michael Corbit of Workforce Solutions and Jan Pagano of Indian River State College, was to present entrepreneurs from across the Research C oast (Indian River, St. L ucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties), and showcase their innovative technologies. The seven entrepreneur presenters included a variety of start-up and earlystage companies representing an array of industries. It didnt take long before Mr. Moore and Mr. Barry, together with Russell Bjorkman, approached the college with their desire to help form a nonprofit, priv ate sector foundation that could launch a business plan competition for similar companies along the R esearch Coast. C ombining their vision, talents and investments in the community, the R esearch Coast Principium F oundation, a nonprofit entity, was born and plans for a business plan competition were initiated.

state legislature is scheduled to vote on a bill this session that would allow the D epartment of Agriculture to give tax collectors authority to collect the information needed to apply for or renew the permits for carrying concealed w eapons, said Carole Jean Jor dan, Indian River County tax collector. Once the bill has been approved, there would be a few pilot sites for the program to be tested and Indian River County would be one of those sites, she said. C urrently, individuals interested in the permit must make an appointment at one of eight Department of Agriculture regional offices, or to the main office in Tallahassee, and fill out an application. The application includes payment, fingerprinting, a photograph, and electronic paperwork for identification and background information. P eople can also mail in the information after getting the photo and fingerprints done at approved locations. The problem with the current process is that it often takes two or more months to get an appointment, Ms. Jordan said. By opening the tax collectors offices to the permit application process, for a small convenience fee, constituents can receive their permits in a much shorter amount of time and not have to drive to a regional office several counties away to get their information in the system, Ms. Jordan said. The tax collectors offices have taken on the tasks of issuing driver licenses, tags and renewals, so collecting and handling the private information of individuals securely and safely is already in place. I t would add to the onestop shopping that we can offer the public, Ms. Jordan said. The tax collectors office would be the information gatherer only, the final approval for the applications would still come from T allahassee, she said. Mar ion Hammer, current lobbyist for and past president of the NRA, said the current process takes much too long. Legislators should r ecognize this idea will streamline the process, and because the applications are ever increasing, the more help the Department of Agriculture can get, the better. In 2009, applications for concealed weapon permits skyrocketed and the numbers have been increasing ever since, Ms. Hammer said. There are a variety of reasons for the increase, including politics and further regulations about carr ying weapons in vehicles, but no matter the reason, fixing the process is necessary, she said. The convenience fee for the local permit applications will be relatively small, likely to be less than it would cost for an individual to drive around town getting the fingerprints and photo and then driving to a r egional office, Ms. Jordan said. If approved in this legislative session, permits could be available in Indian River C ounty in June 2013.

The exhibit will be on display through Jan. 6. Cliff Partlow staff photographerVERO BEACH When a modern invention is powerful enough to stop time itself, the possibilities are endless for those with creative eyes. The art of photography is interesting and beautiful because it takes a snapshot of reality and highlights it beyond what the human eye generally sees, said photo enthusiast George Bollis Jr. Mr. Bollis was one of dozens of photographers who entered the Indian River Photo Clubs 2012 juried print exhibition at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, and he won first place in two categories.

DINING & ENTERTAINMENT Ceremony featured new holiday tree, childrens artwork INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Indian River Medical C enters 22nd anniversary of the auxiliarys Tree of Lights ceremony on Dec. 6 featured a new green technology holiday tree and the artwork from 30 children ages 5-12 on display. The auxiliary of IRMC purchased a new 24-foot Oregon Cascade fir tree to r eplace the original tree purchased in 1995, said B ob Michael, director of facility services. The tree has 1,360 LED C7 lamps, more energy efficient than the older incandescent-style bulbs. The new tree uses only 680 watts of power, while the older tree consumed 7,200 watts to power up 1,200 incandescent lamps. Other highlights of the event include a solo vocal performance by 13-year-old G abrielle McFall, daughter of Megan McFall, clinical coordinator for IRMCs partners in womens health program and artwork from IRMCs annual childrens holiday art contest on display at the after-party. All of the four winning artists were present to r eceive a prize after a random drawing and help light the tree. The Tree of Lights plays a dual role, as it heralds in the holidays while at the same time, raises money for worthwhile projects. The Tree of Lights is used to purchase necessary equipment and education programs for IRMCs womens health care team to continue to provide quality healthcare to the community.

Patten Community Gallery in the Hazel Education Wing of the museum. In the color-fauna category, Enlightened, Mr. B ollis photo of a white peacock butterfly took home the top prize. N atures colors and patterns, especially butterflies, often inspire him to find the perfect shot. P hotography basically is a way to see things we dont pay attention to very often. Be fore I got into photography, I knew butterflies existed, but I didnt know the species, the colors of them all. Same with birds; we tend to see the herons and the sand hill cranes, but we miss out on the small birds, Mr. Bollis said. Mr. Bollis is an architect by trade and his other hobbies include watercolor painting, planting butterfly-attracting gardens, hiking and bird watching. H is second first-place prize was in the still life category for his photograph, S ewing Wild Oats. The photo is of stitching on a wild sea oats plant with a background of black felt, a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of the familiar clich, sowing wild oats. I look for humor and creativity in my photographs, too, Mr. Bollis said. Another first-place winner, David Garrett, enjoys photographing people and capturing their essence in an image. I see something in their eye, something in their smile and I want to take a picture, Mr. Garrett said. I try to bring out the true self of someone, whats r eally inside them, he said. H is first-place photograph Homeless, is of a Civil War re-enactor playing the part of a vagrant in Fort Pierce. H e had so much character in his face. He played the part so well, something just struck me and I had to take a picture, Mr. Garrett said. Sp orts action photography was his livelihood several years ago, but now he finds great satisfaction in portraits and candid portraits of people. The Indian River Photo Clubs juried exhibition includes works from members of the club as well as non-members, both professional and amateur.

BEHINDTOMMYSTRANSMISSIONS With the holidays in full swing many of us are going to purchase one or more of the colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia.These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If you have pets that have a habit of chewing your plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the real thing and you can reuse them year after y ear. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe.

gency Management in its statewide public awareness campaign. Final digital videos should be submitted via the FDEM video portal at www.KidsGetAP lan.com. All entries must be uploaded by Jan. 18. Winning entries will be announced Feb. 1. F or complete poster and video PSA contest rules and topic information,visit www.FloridaDisaster.org/S WAW or www.KidsGetAP lan.com. With all of the uproar regarding the USGA and R&As decision to implement a rule banning the anchored stroke from the game beginning in January 2016, I began to wonder just how many of us truly follow the rules of golf. W ith the number of golfers using an anchored stroke to enjoy playing the game for fun, will they even care what the lords at the USGA and R&A do? I would bet that one would be hard-pressed to find any one person playing golf outside a sanctioned competition with rules officials and the like watching over them who follow the rules to the letter and intent of the law. We r ecreational golfers break the rules all the time. We move our drive in the fairway from a divot that was left behind. We move our ball off a root so we dont break a club or our wrist. We hardly ever r eturn to the tee to re-hit after finding our ball outof-bounds. We give 2-foot putts to speed things up. We even take mulligans. Wi th all this in mind, I think its time we have a set of rules for recreational golfers. We need them! There are three things that hurt our beloved game. Its expensive, it takes a long time to play and most of all, its too difficult. If you owned a golf course, would you really care if the golfers are playing by the rules or would it matter more that they are having fun, enjoying the game and filling up the tee sheets? The results of a recent Google survey, based on nearly 7,000 respondents shows that 61percent of golfers admit to occasionally bending the rules. An additional 12 percent admit to always bending the rules while only 27 percent claim to have always played by the letter of the rules. In addition, the same survey shows an overwhelming majority of golfers consider themselves recreational golfers and have no desire to follow the same rules that professionals do. Few er than 15 percent keep an official USGA handicap and an equal amount have no idea what a handicap is. Of those responding to the survey, 78 percent said they play the game for fun, nothing more, nothing less. The remainder admit to playing by the rules because they enjoy the challenge it presents, for work or because they are aspiring to become professionals. The golf industry is facing some interesting challenges. According to the National Golf Foundation, golf rounds fell from 518 million to 475 million in the past decade. The numbers have declined in each of the past five years. M any surveys done by the NGF have shown those leaving the game have given three main reasons for their departure: high cost, excessive time needed to play and inconvenient rules. The Google survey shows what many, including myself, have thought for y ears. Those of us who enjoy this game are fine with the idea of playing with recreational equipment. We dont mind the implementation of balls that want to go straight and clubs that help poor swings. Why should this game only be enjoyed by those talented enough to play it well or with enough time and money to devote to honing their skills to make it so? W ith that in mind, I think we should have a set of Recreational Rules for Golf. They should be simple and straightforward. The best part of these rules should be that as long as everyone in the four-some or group agrees with what they are at the start of the round, and it doesnt slow down your play at the expense of others or damage the course, it doesnt matter what they are. The rules being used by a group of buddies five groups ahead could not matter less to me and my bunch. Nor should our r ecreational rules matter to you. W ouldnt manufacturers love to be able to take the r eins off their designers and have them make clubs that help the poor golfer? Im sure if they sold enough of them, they wouldnt mind there being two sets of rules or nonconforming clubs. It s time we stand up and be heard. Its time to save our game and make our enjoyment of it paramount.

determine changes in classroom management skills. In addition to current teachers participating in the research project, college-level education students at IRSC also use the system to practice classr oom management methods. The TeachLive simulator allows teachers or teacher candidates to interact with r eal-time student avatars who exhibit the most challenging behaviors of middle-school students through a projection system. The student avatars are controlled by interactors, professionals trained in voice impersonations and developmentally appropriate behaviors, r esulting in unscripted scenarios, including disr uptions, giggling and non-speaking outbursts. To create a realistic classroom environment, the students represent the five most common categories of behaviors common to middle school students as classified by psychologists: S ean. Always seeking affirmation (with a perpetually raised hand). Maria. S hying away from teachers and peers; Cindy (CJ). Constantly testing authority. Ke vin. Looking for affirmation from other students, even if they misbehave. E d. Shy but willing. T eachLive provides a unique opportunity for teachers and education students to react to all types of classroom behavior, practice the best classr oom management methods and positively impact student learning, said Mar ta Cronin, director of the IRSC School of Education. IRSC offers bachelors in education degree programs in middle and high school math, middleschool science, highschool biology and exceptional student education. St udents gain a firm foundation in all aspects of teaching practice and complete students teaching at local schools during their senior year.

3INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG Belly dancingTRY NEW THINGS SEBASTIAN The exotic movements of belly dancing can be fun to watch. Actually doing the movements y ourself can provide benefits beyond feeling sexier and something completely new to introduce to an exercise r outine or to spice up your weekly schedule. I t s a low impact activity and it improves coordination and posture, said Angela Vasconellos, a belly dancing and Zumba instructor. Everyone at any age can try it because its a lightcardio exercise. When belly dancing, there is no need to show your stomach, a problem many get over to try belly dancing. F or Phyllis Schneider, a mother of two and a student of Ms. Vasconellos, belly dancing was as much of an exercise as it was a time to spend time with friends. I t makes me feel youthful, Mrs. Schneider said. I did feel sore in places, but it was unique parts of you that you dont always use. It was as much of a physical exercise for me as it was a mental exercise. B elly dancing exercises are specially tailored for the female body. B elly dancing was first used in cultures along the Arabian Peninsula. W omen formed groups and dressed in cover ups, dancing among themselves. M uch is the same at the classes, where clients are advised to wear comfortable clothing and can either w ear sneakers or socks. A lot of people sometimes have a misconception of the true meaning of belly dancing because it has become so Americanized, Ms. Vasconellos said. And thats why some were afraid to try the dance. The dancers also wear cloth wrapped skirts with metal coins attached, called coin skirts, during the exercises, which accentuate the movements with the sounds as they shimmy and shake. Classes are available through Ms. V asconellos and through private and semi-private classes. Ms. Vasconellos also teaches Z umba as well as Pilates.

4INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG If theyre on the right plan and they have the right accountability and motivation, they can lose weight.Phil Rachko Personal training manager at The Jungle Club VERO BEACH For many people, a resolution that is made and broken most is losing weight. On Jan. 1 the motivation is fresh and alive, and following the workout plan is easy. Then, by the middle of J anuary, the motivation starts slipping away. By the end of January, the r esults arent quite up to expectation and another resolution goes down the drain. S ound familiar? P hil Rachko, the personal training manager at The Jungle Club, a fitness center in Vero Beach, says there are several aspects to losing weight. O ne is eating correctly, followed by proper aerobic conditioning, proper strength training, supplementation to make up for the lack of nutrients because theyre eating a lot less food, accountability and motivation, he said. All of these tips are part of the process when hiring a personal trainer to help with clients goals. The personal trainer will discuss the lifestyle of the client and how best to lose w eight, as well as devise a workout plan to best facilitate weight loss. Y ou dont go to a golf course with a set of golf clubs to learn how to play golf and expect to get very far, Mr. R achko said. You ask the experts. S ame goes for working out and losing w eight, so you dont get injured and if y ou get results fast enough, you get excited about the potential. That is why you hire a personal trainer. Mr. Rachko also said there are alternatives to hiring a personal trainer if yo u re on an extreme budget. R esources such as Weight Watchers and following The Zone Diet book help, but those trying to lose weight still need help. I f theyre on the right plan and they have the right accountability and motivation, they can lose weight, he said. If theyre not, its not going to work and there is something wrong with one of those three elements. Car dio can be a good place to start with workouts, which is a workout that involves using large muscle groups over a specified period of time. He also suggests cutting out bad foods from the diet such as sugar and fat, white flour and eating five to six meals a day. When you take in a small amount of food, your body will not store that, Mr. Rachko said. Your body will store food in response to taking in too many calories at one time. If y ou eat 2,000 calories a day and break it down into 400 calories a meal, your body breaks it down and doesnt store it. The staff at The Jungle Club has several different personal trainers to help along with any weight loss goal.

MARTIN COUNTY In the 1960s, smoking cigarettes was heralded as sexy and provocative. A few decades later, it is a habit that few consider sexy and the side effects are far from it, includeing cancer. Dr Kirk Voelker and Dr. Barry Hummel created the Quit Doc Research and Education Foundation, dedicated to reducing the number of deaths in the United States from tobacco use and abuse. The foundation has state funding from the Florida Department of H ealth to operate in 11 counties, two of which are Indian River and Martin counties. W e re trying to prevent young people from ever starting and to help promote adult tobacco cessation, Dr. H ummel said. The first step in quitting can often be the hardest, but Dr. Hummel said most people go about it the wrong way. F irst and most important is to set a quit date that is a little down the road, Dr Hummel said. Set it up a few w eeks down the road. Get support from friends and colleagues and let them know what is coming. You might be grouchy and that you will need help. He also suggested to talking with y our doctor., Tthere can beare medications that can help, particularly with nicotine withdrawal. As with most lifestyle changes, teaming up with someone is the best. I f there is someone you can quit with, quit with them, Dr. Hummel said. If youre going through it together then if one of you has a weak moment, they can lend support in an emotional way. When people quit, and go through the few days of nicotine withdrawal, there are still issues that you could face that triggers could still trip you up, Dr. Hummel calls triggers. I t s like when you pour a cup of coffee and get into the car. Its based on each persons personal patterns, he said. W e suggest that you change up y our routine going into your quit date. When you get in your car, lock your cigarettes in the trunk or smoke with the opposite hand or buy cigarettes from a different place, buy a different brand or smoke in a different place in y our home. After a few months, triggers are usually stress related. The first of the year is a common time for people to quit smoking. A bout 70 percent of smokers would like to quit at some point and this is the one time of the year that it gets to every ones attention, Dr. Hummel said. Its a gentle reminder to people who are interested in quitting smoking.

In the past few years, Americans have done a pretty good job of whittling down their debt load. If yo u re in this group, you may now have a chance to use your lower level of indebtedness to your advantage by investing for the future. C onsider the numbers: in 2007, just before the financial crisis, the countrys household debt service ratio was about 14 percent. (The debt service ratio is the ratio of debt payments, including mortgages and consumer debt, to disposable personal income.) But by 2012, this figure had dipped below 11 percent, the lowest level since 1994. These figures are national averages, but they do translate into real-life savings for many of us. If youre in this group that is, if youve lowered your debt payments noticeably what should you do with this found money? Of course, you could spend it on material objects, which, in some cases, may make your life more pleasant today. But youd probably be better off by devoting your financial resources to y our goals for tomorrow, such as college for your children and, eventually, a comfortable retirement lifestyle for y ourself. C onsequently, you want may want to consider these suggestions: I ncrease your contributions to your r etirement plan. Tr y to put more money into your employer-sponsored r etirement plan, such as a 401(k), 403(b) or 457(b). Your contributions are typically made with pretax dollars, so the more you invest, the lower your taxable income. Plus, your earnings can grow on a tax-deferred basis. F ully fund your IRA. Y ou can put in up to $5,000 per year (as of 2012) to a traditional or Roth IRA or $6,000 if yo u re 50 or older. A traditional IRA grows tax-deferred, while a Roth IRA can grow tax-free, provided you meet certain conditions. Fi ll in gapsin your financial strategy. W ith a little extra money each month, can you find ways to fill in the gaps in your financial strategy? For example, do you have sufficient life insurance and disability income insurance? Or can you add some investments that can help diversify y our overall portfolio? While diversification cant guarantee profits or protect against loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility on your holdings. B uild an emergency fund. It s a good idea to build an emergency fund containing six to 12 months worth of living expenses. Without such a fund, y ou may be forced to dip into longterm investments to pay for unexpected costs, such as a large bill from the doctor or a major car repair.

E dwin Perkins, pharmacist and o wner, emphasizes the importance of individualized service to his customers on a daily basis. F or more than 20 years, clients have been treated like family, greeted by name and helped as quickly as possible. Y oure not a number here. We know our regulars by name and we try not to make people wait too long, Mr. Perkins said. The pharmacy routinely places orders that arrive next day and often makes deliveries to physicians offices and clients who have trouble leaving the house. Extra employees were hired to be able to make the deliveries a regular part of client care. W e dont have the hours of a chain drugstore, but our customers understand that and dont mind, but they value our personal service, Mr. Perkins said. Emergency services are also available, he said. Per kins Pharmacy honors most insurance companies, including M edicaid, Medicare and workers compensation. Though the wait time at Perkins P harmacy may be relatively short, customers can still squeeze in a little browsing for unique gift ideas in the store. D ee Dee Perkins, Mr. Perkins wife, handles the gift shop side of the pharmacy and chooses highquality items she would feel comfortable giving as gifts. W e have an order book behind the counter for drug-related orders and we have one for gift-related orders, Mrs. Perkins said. W e want to carry unique gift items you dont find often in stores. We have more boutique items than drugstores usually carry and we have different lines, with limited quantities so youre not going to see it anywhere else, Mrs. Perkins said. C ollegiate-themed bags, plates, candles and more dominate one aisle in the shop, while summer colors brighten another area and r hinestone-detailed leather purses and wallets are the focal point in another area. Mrs. Perkins looks for quality gift items made in the U.S. and whenever possible, she brings them into the store. Cindy Stillwagon is the designated gift consultant for the store. She often helps customers choose gifts based on information about the person receiving it. W e also offer free gift wrap all y ear round. A lot of places dont do that anymore, Ms. Stillwagon said. Per kins Pharmacy is located at 4015 20th St.,Vero Beach.For more information,call (772) 453-2161 or (772) 978-6470 or visit www.perkinsphar.com.Pharmacy carries unique giftsBUSINESS Perkins Pharmacy has been meeting the prescription and gift needs of clients in Indian River County for more than 20 years.

8INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG The well-traveled road Youve lost your family. You know they were in that small town in Georgia or Virginia or maybe New York, but where did they come from and where did they go? This is where you go from your traditional genealogy research to all those other subjects Ive been telling you to study: history, geography, politics and the financial conditions of the times. R ead the local history and study what was going on when your ancestor first appeared in their present location. Was it the area being settled by land grants or bounty land given for military service, during the 1849 Gold Rush, or the expansion of the railroad? Where did the other residents come from? Chances are, your family moved with acquaintances. S ome families stayed in one area and others moved every generation. M igration can go in almost any pattern. Sometimes everyone in the family moved at once, taking the elderly parents with them. Often, they stayed until the parents died, then all the children took their families and moved south or west, looking for newer and greener fields, either going together, or scattering across the country. They may have moved one at a time, with either the oldest or y oungest staying behind with ma or pa and keeping the farm or settling the estate before moving on them. S tarting in 1850, census records will give the birth state of each individual. This tells you if they have moved from the state where they were born. The 1870 census tells if the parents were foreign born. By 1880, the census gives the birthplace of the parents of each person. This is valuable information in tracing the migration of the families. It will help decide if it was y our direct ancestor who started migrating or was it his parents or grandparents? M any deeds give the home of the grantee, or grantor, who may have moved on before he sold the land. While traveling down the migration r oute, look at these records for your ancestors names. If you find their names, investigate thoroughly to build a case to determine if this, indeed, is your family. Check all the r ecords in the county, and compare the facts with those you know about y our family. When you determine that you are dealing with the same people, you will have completed another link in the chain. I cant stress enough the importance of researching everyone in the family, when trying to trace a dead-end family. Never stop with just researching the husband and wife who are your direct ancestors. Look at each child and who they married. Research the wifes parents. Each person in the family has a story and each person and place they came in contact with makes up a piece of the large puzzle of this family group. Chances are, they lived with, next door to or married a r elative or friend who migrated from the same community. When y ou find the origin of these lateral connections, look for your family in this same location. They traveled over established migration routes, from settlement GENEALOGY B RENDA K.

9INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG For more January firsts than I can remember, I have woken with firm resolve to cure all the ills that I have allowed to permeate my life. Ex cesses of all sorts, relationships, jobs and more were all fair game in my firm quest to make my world a better place. Discovering that I am my own worst enemy pertaining to limits of any kind I have decided this y ear will be different. I am making a list of non-resolutions and would like to share a few with you. Please feel free to join me, where applicable, and share with me any that you are doing this year or have benefited from in the past. I resolve not to drive to work with my head so full of reports and deadlines that I dont pull off the r oad to stand in awe and thank the big guy for the panoramic wonder of a whole sky filled with pinks, blues and oranges showing His promise of another day. And not to try to convince the nice officer that if the lawmakers would have seen this sunrise they would surely have made a sunrise watching lane instead of an emergency lane and I was just ahead of my time. I resolve not to be so rushed that I dont take the time to share Gods wonder with a granddaughter serving our country in a cold, bleak part of the U.S. through the wondrous technology of the phone thing that my children insisted I learn how to use. And not to get upset when she calls me for the fourth time to tell me I sent her another picture of my foot. I resolve not to keep an eye on my favorite TV show when a grandchild goes out of her way to come and see her Grammy and Poppi after night school, but to turn the blasted idiot box off and play 50s music while we stir up gingerbread because it makes her laugh. And try to come up with a better explanation of Love Potion N umber Nine. I resolve not to dodge but to answer the phone cheerfully, listen intently and find comforting words every time a friend calls, even though I know the call will result in 20 minutes of her bemoaning her life since she broke up with a boyfriend. And never to utter the words, I told you not to go out with a guy that has nine hamsters all named Bootsy! I resolve not to speed up so I can get past the kitten that r uns to meet me as I power walk past her house, but to stop and enjoy a tiny soul that only wants a moment of attention. But refrain from sitting in the middle of the sidewalk and playing with her until its too dark to continue my walk. I resolve to stop obsessing over the numbers on my scale and just concentrate on getting more exercise, eating healthier and cutting my sugar intake. I will begin this moment Or perhaps after the last of the leftover pie is gone (I cant be expected to throw it away can I?) And theres a whole tin of sugar cookies baked by my favorite little people. And all those candy canes. This one may be a tad difficult I pray everyone reading this and their families has a blessed and healthy New Year!New Years resolutions, non-resolutionsROSES ROOM ROSES ROOM ROSE PADRICK 049463

to settlement, by waterways and trails, following those who went before them. The first of these r outes was a crude trail created in the 1600s, between Boston and New Yo rk that became the Boston Post R oad. Over the years, the network grew, connecting the colonies from M aine to Georgia. Then the roads began to inch westward and settlers traveled by the combination of waterways and trails, roads and r ailways across the country. Y our journey back down these trails will not be a fast one unless y ou have family stories to guide y ou. Y ou will have to search the r ecords all along the routes you think your family may have taken. S ometimes the trip was a steady move from point A to point B. Many times the families would find a locale they liked and stop for a generation or two, then move on. As I indicated earlier, some family members will move and some will stay, and you will find them moving back and forth, intermarrying with friends and cousins from each location. That is why it is important to r esearch each person to pick up these relationships. It can help you find the missing family member y ou need. All you need is to head down the r oad, stopping to inspect the cemeteries, and court houses, and r emember, if you listen carefully, y ou just might hear someone say, Here I am.
