IS THIS R EALLY NEEDED?The programs on your computer and what c an be uninstalled P ageA6 INSIDEINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Construction of a new Indian River C ounty school district administration center will begin this summer at a district-owned parcel near S torm Grove Middle School. The question, "to build or not to build," has been on the table for some years as the Indian River C ounty school board has tried to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, but now the board has decided a new facility is the best choice. The estimated cost of the new building is $7.3 million, which will be funded through sales of unused district property, a net balance of funds leftover from the construction of Storm Grove Middle School and budgeted capital dollars. B oard member Matthew Morrison said from a purely financial point of view, building a new building just makes sense. The school district currently leases its administration building from Indian River County, yet it is r esponsible for maintenance and upkeep. The building is old and r equires extensive r epairs to get it back in good working order, but putting capital dollars into a building that is r ented should be "avoided at all costs," Mr. McCain said. The rent money comes from the school district's operating budget, and once the district's ownSchool board votes to build new administration center 087269 IR Lic.#4714€ 772-569-0200 € www.popcornremoval.comOccupied Homes Our Speciality POPCORN CEILINGSRemoved,Replaced with Knock DownJOSEPH STEVENS AND SONSLicensed,Bonded & Insured € All Major Credit Cards AcceptedJMJ Guaranteed Work Since 1970Thanks To God Who Created Us!

African-American pioneers' recognized INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Three African-American men were recognized by the In dian River County Board of County Commissioners for their impact to the community last week. In a proclamation honoring African-American Pioneer Day, Willie Griffieth, J oseph Brown and Alvin R. Thomas were commended for paving the way for future generations in business, public and elected arenas. I ndian River County S heriff's Deputy Teddy Fl oy d and Gifford community leader Freddie Woolfork sought out potential candidates for the recognition and brought the final nominees to the board's attention. "F ebruary is AfricanAmerican history month, so this was a great time to recognize some of our own history, not just in Gifford, but all over Indian River County," Deputy Floyd said. Mr. Thomas and Mr. Br o wn both appeared in the chambers on Feb. 18 to thank commissioners for their recognition. Thank you for considering me for my contribution to Fellsmere," Mr. Thomas said. Mr. Thomas, originally from Jamaica West Indies was the first black man to serve on the Fellsmere City C ouncil after his appointment in 1978. He served on the council through 1982 and subsequently ran for and won election to council and was named interim mayor that year. He was elected mayor in 1983 and served in that capacity through 1985. He was reappointed to city council in 1989 to fill the unexpired term of Joe W ashington, another African-American who died in 1989. In 1990, he was again elected as a councilmember and was selected to serve as Mayor ProT em and served until 1992, the proclamation said. Du r ing the meeting, Mr. Thomas said he was grateful that the county commis-By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com See P IONEERS, A2To educate and enforceINDIAN RIVER COUNTY For the past few weeks, Alexis Thomas, 23, has been pinching herself to make sure her new job as Indian River County storm water educator and fertilizer enforcement officer isn't a dream. The recent University of S outh Florida graduate beat out all other applicants for the new position created by the county specifically to address lagoon impact from nutrients found in fertilizer, said Chris Mora, Indian River C ounty public works director. Alexis had the best combination of education, background and experience, the best credentials out of all of them. And she's a lifelong r esident so she's familiar with the lagoon," Mr. Mora said. Ms. Thomas was raised in I ndian River County, attending Osceola Magnet School, S ebastian River Middle School and graduated from S ebastian River High School. As early as elementary school, Ms. Thomas took an interest in environmental concerns and that interest blossomed into volunteering at the Environmental Learning Center in Wabasso during high school and then obtaining a bachelor's degree in environmental science. As is the case with many college graduates these days, after graduation in 2013, none of the jobs she applied for came through so she kept busy working at a local law office until almost a year later she heard of the new position in her own backyard. "I was really lucky. God just lined everything up for me," Ms. Thomas said. One of the elements that gave Ms. Thomas an edge ov er her competitors was her internship with the storm water division in Hillsborough County. Her experience there will translate well to her new position in Indian River C ounty, Mr. Mora said. "W e' re very excited to have her. She's young and enthusiastic and has already jumped in with both feet," he said. Last week, Ms. Thomas traveled to all of the sites where Indian River County is already working on projects to benefit the lagoon, including Egret Marsh, where she participated in harvesting Staff hired to oversee county fertilizer ordinance adherenceBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com Photo provided by Alexis ThomasAs part of training for her new role as storm water educ ator and fertilizer enforcement officer, Alexis Thomas visited county-run Egret Marsh to assist with algae harvesting. She will be tasked with educating the public on lagoon-safe practices and enforcing fertilizer ordinance violations. Ms. Thomas, 23, is lifelong resident of Indian River County and a recent University of South Florida graduate.See ENFORCE, A3T ips to guide y ou through the warm weather veggies Rec.

sion continued to recognize God in their meetings. Though he originally came to Fellsmere and found work at what is now known as F ellsmere Farms, he remembers his years on council with fondness. "I took my responsibility and obligations very seriously. I have never forgotten my oath of office," Mr. Thomas said. A1984 St. Petersburg Times article records that in 1978 the city of Fellsmere was near bankruptcy and while three members of the city council quit in an attempt to dissolve the city, Mr. Thomas and a few others in the community decided to take drastic measures to pay off the city's debt. An auction was held to r aise the funds needed to pay back the state department of natural resources. "I r emember when staff was being paid with IOUs, but I never gave up," Mr. Thomas said during the commission meeting. Mr. Brown, a Wabasso resident, is a contemporary "pioneer," currently holding the position of criminal justice academy coordinator for the In dian River State College's law enforcement academy. He thanked commissioners for recognizing him in such a way. A former deputy with Indian River County Sheriff's Office, Mr. Brown began teaching at the college as an adjunct in the 2001-02 year. Fr om both his experience as a deputy and now working at the college as the first African-American criminal justice coordinator, Mr. Br o wn has seen and touched the lives of many in the community, including youth that have grown up and sought a career in law enforcement. That's how I met Teddy (Floyd). He would come and go on ride-alongs with me," Mr. Brown said. "A t the end of the day, and I've had 27 plus years in law enforcement, I can't think of a better way to give back to the community than to have this job," Mr. Brown said. And he's still making an impact on the community today," Deputy Floyd said. The third honoree, Mr. Griffieth, now resides in Georgia, but was represented at the meeting by cousins S haron and Karen Griffieth. In 1983, Mr. Griffieth was the first African-American to W ABASSO A national search is underway for a new Environmental Learning Center leader as cofounder and executive director Holly Dill has announced her decision to r etire later this year. S he will continue to hold her position until someone else can be found to take ov er the position, but the shoes she leaves are going to be very big to fill, said Carl M iller, chairman of the nonprofit's communication committee. "I have worked with Holly for the past 25 years; she is the backbone of the Envir onmental Learning Center. We are absolutely going to miss her, but she has definitely earned her retirement status," Mr. Miller said. Ms. Dill has held the position of executive director since the environmental education nature center was created 25 years ago, playing a major role in bringing the nonprofit organization to life on its 64-acre campus on W abasso Island, a press r elease said. U nder her leadership, the learning center has provided hands-on, environmental education experiences to more than 400,000 people, including 60,000 first, third, and fourth grade students, as part of the Indian River C ounty School District curr iculum, the release said. Du r ing those 25 years, some of the challenges she faced were fairly substantial, Mr. Miller said. Aside from getting the center started, the 2004 hurr icanes caused a lot of damage to the facility. But the biggest hurdle was probably when they lost a major building to a lightning strike in 2008," Mr. Miller said. They had to rebuild from there, and what they have now is excellent," he said. In a press release, Ms. Dill said she will be staying close to home during retirement. "I 'm looking forward to having more personal time to explore the environment I've been working to protect for year," Ms. Dill said. "A re laxing ride on the St. S ebastian River in my jon boat, a walk in a nearby park, or a stroll on the ELC's boardwalks. It will be a pleasure to play in nature," she said.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Indian River County V olunteer Ambulance Squad has begun its 49th annual fundraising campaign with a goal of $125,000. The squad sends out letters once a year asking for donations from the community. The Volunteer Ambulance Squad is a private, nonprofit organization consisting of ov er 55 trained volunteer drivers who provide free non-emergency transportation to doctor appointments, kidney dialysis, cancer treatment, rehabilitation and other medical appointments. The door-to-door service is available to anyone in the county simply by calling and making a reservation in advance. Passengers may be ambulatory or in a wheelchair. The Squad does not transport emergency cases. In 2013, drivers made over 14,000 trips in the squad's 10 vehicles. There is no charge for this service, although donations are accepted from the passengers on a voluntary basis. However, donations do not begin to cover the Squad's expenses. M oney for gasoline, insurance, maintenance and other needs is provided through donations from passengers and members of the community. No money is received from the United Way, county, state, or any other government agency. The Squad r elies solely on the goodwill and generosity of county r esidents who have been very generous in their support. T ax deductible donations may be mailed to: Indian River County Volunteer Ambulance Squad, P.O. Box 2240, Vero Beach, FL 32961.

Andrea Coy, a member of the Sebastian City Council, wrote that her hometown city is behind her 100 percent. "Y our name is showing up on billboards and banners all over town," Ms. Coy wrote. "W e are so proud to have a young lady with your talent, poise and killer smile r epresenting us. You have the total package to be the next American Idol. Keep up the great job and know that y our hometown loves you," she said. S upporters also showered her with encouraging notes on her Twitter account. During the week, Ms. O'Connor posted photos of parts of the competition process, including a photo shoot, allowing fans an insider's perspective. Ms. O'Connor was one of three "wild card" contestants chosen to advance by the show's judges, Harry C onnick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban.

S he is also spending quite a bit of time familiarizing herself with the actual provisions in the ordinance document so that she can clearly communicate to the public what is and isn't permissible. What I've found is that everyone has been talking about the fertilizer ordinance for the past year, but many people have no idea what is in it, or they have r ead a few things, but they are still confused," Ms. Thomas said. S ome of her first steps to educate the public on the standards of the ordinance have been to film an education video that will be played on the government channel in the near future.

The next time you see or know of a child being abused, call DCF and the police and tell them a dog is being abused and you will see them turn up in a rush to save that dog, It seems people don't give a crap about children anymore .It's the poor, abused dogs. I think people have really gone nuts. They seem to think more of dogs then they do kids, and to think the taxpayers are paying the people that work at DCF to sit on their butts and do nothing about the abuse of children. They need to be investigated.Don't extend benefitsIf the left gets its way, unemployment compensation will go on forever. The number of job seekers dwarfs the number of jobs available. Therefore, extended benefits do much more harm than they do good. Paying people not to work incentivizes them not to look for work. E xtending payments, as suggested by President Obama, increases the likelihood that they will have a much more difficult time reentering the workforce. He believes recipients will vote for him. He should be much more concerned about America's financial wellbeing as well as America's future.L eave your dogs at homeI have noticed that many people bring their dogs into grocery stores. I would think that is a violation of the health codes. These people put their dogs in the grocery carts, many times in the child seat. Do they realize that dogs do not wear depends or use toilet paper and that the next person is going to put their food in the cart the dog just got out of? I have a friend that has a child that is severely allergic to dog hair. They put their child in a cart and the child started to have a hard time breathing. They then noticed that the child seat was covered with dog hair. I have owned dogs all my life, they were a family member, but if we were going somewhere the dog should not the dog stayed home.Don't vote for HillaryWe made a terrible mistake when we voted for the first black president, ignoring his lack of credentials for the office. Let's not make a similar mistake by electing an unqualified woman, just because she is a female. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton cheapened the lives of four brave Americans who were killed in Benghazi. We should be certain the first woman president is qualified but, above all else, honest and truthful.F ed up with the system?K udos to another person who is fed up with the welfare system as it is. You want to fix it? Then vote out every freaking liberal politician you can. Those up in Washington have the thoughts that by upping the minim wage will fix the problem. No, there are those who are poverty stricken by no fault of their own, but there are some by choice, mainly because they want that government check. The liberals miss the mark in our country. We have an education system that is paid for by the working class. It's called the public school system. Then we have another system, also paid by the working class and their tax payer dollars it's called the public library system. The library does a free r eading class for toddlers. How many single mothers bring the kids to this? I know a few people who have daughters on the system and have more than one kid. These people are great manipulators and they'll twist the truth to fit their needs. They make great actors as well. Mid-term elections are approaching, and now is the time to clean house and senate. For those who dislike these types of r ants, well bottom line, you don't want to hear the truth. T wo ideas for SebastianI just read that the city Of Sebastian has a budget surplus of $5.5 million dollars and that the budget director said now is the time to spend some of it, I agree. I have two suggestions. First, I suggest that the citywide drainage problem be fixed. I have lived here for four years, my neighbor, a lot longer, and the problem remains the same. Why doesn't a member of council take the bull by the horns and get it fixed? Second, it is time to get rid of the septic tanks and get a sewer system. I know this is an expensive project, but with federal and state funding, it can be done. The remaining costs for the project could be financed by the city and r epaid in installments by property owners. I believe these two completed projects would increase property values and also help to save the Lagoon.News for toll road usersF or the toll patrons that still stop and get a ticket from the automatic dispenser, you will note that the tickets are stamped with the time that you received the tickets . and they expire 12 hours later. When they are expired, the collector is required to charge you the maximum distance from that particular plaza. As long as you aren't planning to be gone, from the plaza that you entered, more than 11 hours and 59 minutes the following will save you money: (1) If, when you stop and pick up your ticket, there are no cars behind you, you can back up (safely) about 20 feet and then pull back up to the ticket machine it will dispense another ticket. This second ticket can be used, as long as you exit at the same plaza that you entered, as a U-turn priced ticket. U-turn costs at every plaza are different but if you entered the toll road at the Port St. Lucie plaza and returned 11 hours later, for example, the collector would charge you 40 cents even though you got your ticket from Lantana an hour earlier . just don't use the Lantana ticket at exit plaza. And, if you commute back and forth to work every day, you can do this every day. The deputy director of tolls knows that the machines don't always dispense a ticket when a vehicle pulls up but if you leave without a ticket, she has directed that the collectors, when you get off at your exit plaza to charge you the maximum distance unless you can produce proof of where you entered earlier and didn't get a ticket. The collectors don't have a choice in what they are required to do. C ollectors have been directed, through a memo posted at the plazas to make these unreasonable charges. Got something to say?

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, FEB. 28, 2014 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM A song for healing Many people are surprised when they get their new machine home and someone sends them email with a Word or XL document attached and they cannot open it. "Isn't this thing supposed to be able to handle these files already?" I often hear. The assumption people make is, if they get a machine with enough horsepower, RAM and hard drive space that it ought to do anything they need it to and, to a degree that is true. But the one thing that's missing is the software (or program) to do the job. Pr ograms that are installed after Windows are loaded enhance the system and allow the computer to run at its full potential. What programs we need installed depends on the files that we are trying to open and work with. A lot of the files that we work with on the Internet, such as .jpg, .html and .txt files all will open with the built in W indows applications (called "applets") but other files, such as .xls, .doc, .pdf and .ppt need programs that specifically handle those kinds of files. The three-letter extension is what identifies to the computer what kind of file it is, what icon to display for it and what program to use to open it. If the program that is r equired to open a file is not installed on the machine, then the file will be displayed with a generic Windows icon. When you try to open it, the computer will open a screen listing all the installed applications asking what program y ou want to use to open it. The computer takes a look at the file, doesn't recognize it so it lists all the programs installed and lets you pick what program to open it with because it doesn't have a clue. U nfortunately, when we see that program list, usually we don't have a clue what to open it with either, for the same reason the computer got stumped: there is no program installed for that type of file. So that brings us back to the beginning with the question of what programs does a typical computer need installed, on top of Windows, in order to be able to handle most of the file formats that everyone else in the world is using? Why is it that some machines can already handle certain files and some machines cannot? And, when y ou buy a computer, what should you look for as far as "bundled" software goes? Let's take the last question first and talk about "bundled" software. Some computer manufacturers have made deals with software vendors to "bundle" their software with every computer they sell. They, of course, get some sort of commission for including the software in with the price of the machine, but where things get tricky is every computer manufacturer has a different bundling agreement (or none at all) so every computer comes with different software loaded on top of W indows. What that means is one computer bought from one manufacturer will usually have different software installed than what may be installed in another computer of the same hardware specs (horsepower) from another manufacturer. Whew. Say that one three times fast! OK, so you've decided to get a new computer. What bundled software should you look for (above and beyond Windows) that will allow you to do some of the more common tasks without getting the dreaded "unknown file type message?" W ell, the most common bundle that ought to be installed is some level of Office Suite. An office suite, (such as MS Office, Open Office or even Wo r ks Office), is a package of software to handle Word processing, spreadsheets, databases, etc.; a must-have for productivity. F or things such as .pdf files (adobe portable document) the Acrobat reader can be installed. Adobe Reader and O pen Office are free and can sometimes be found bundled with other software or easily downloaded from the Internet. B ut that is the subject of another column altogether.

Over the eight month period, thousands of sea turtles will emerge from the ocean to dig a nest on the beach and lay their eggs. In J une tiny hatchlings will begin to make their way to the ocean. M ost Floridians are familiar with the triangle stakes scattered along beaches marking nests, but many don't realize that only a small percentage of them are marked and the primary r eason isn't always for protection, but tracking population growth. E cological Associates of J ensen Beach is responsible for some of the turtle monitoring and marking along portions of Indian River, St. L ucie and Martin counties, but there are many agencies that cover the miles of beaches along the Treasure C oast. EAI just found the first nest of the season on Jupiter I sland on Feb. 20. "W e' re excited about that," said Niki Desjardin, project manager at EAI. B ut the fact is that sea turtles are endangered and threatened species and now that their nesting season has begun, there is much beachgoers can do to help protect the beloved creatures. The Florida Oceanographic Society in Stuart offers education and public outr each to the community, giving people a chance to learn, see turtles up close, and understand how to keep them safe. "O ur mission is to inspire environmental stewardship," said Michelle Byriel, education and exhibit specialist at FOS who leads the guided turtle walks in the summer that give individuals a chance to watch the nesting process. They're very important to our whole ecosystem and the environment that we live in," Ms. Byriel said. That's why it's so important for anyone visiting the beach or living on or near it to be cautious and conscientious. Ms. Byriel warns people not to leave trash and debris on the beach, including fishing line and plastic bags that can be especially dangerous for turtles, fill in any holes children might dig, and level any sand sculptures before they leave for the day. It 's also impermissible for anyone to conduct their o wn turtle walks. Curious intruders can easily frighten a turtle and deter it from nesting. FOS has a permit to conduct its walks. M any counties, including Ma r tin, St. Lucie and Indian River, have ordinances limiting or prohibiting lights on the beach during nesting season, including porch lights on homes on or near the beach. Lamps, flashlights and camera flashes can all disorient nesting turtles. There's a lot for the public to be aware of when they're out on the beach," Ms. Desjardin said. She advised visitors to keep dogs from digging on the beach and not disturb the trails sea turtles leave behind that mark where their nests are and allow organizations like EAI to collect their data. As nesting season begins, conservation organizations and the general public can work together to protect the leatherback, loggerhead and green sea turtles that use local beaches to lay their eggs. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 28, 2014 V ero Beach A9 0885341-800-823-0466 088176 AFFORDABLE NON-LAWYERŽ SOLUTIONS, INC.The Name You Can Trust Since 1996Rebecca A.

The day's events are free of charge, thanks to a host of local businesses as sponsors, with the exception of food and drink purchases. Pr oceeds from the day will assist in expanding facility hours, underwriting summer camp scholarship and defraying costs associated with the building of the new poolside pavilion, a press release said. F ood vendors will be on hand with lunch, novelty food items and cold drinks. "R ecreation has attacked from all sides, budgetarywise, the past few years," Mr. Matthews said. R ecently, interested community members formed committees through the city of Vero Beach to brainstorm ideas on how to keep signature Vero Beach events, activities and facilities open on such tight budgets. One idea that has already been carried out with great success was the H oliday Rec Run, held in D ecember at Royal Palm P ointe in Vero Beach. This weekend's event is similar as it will benefit Leisure Square activities, Mr. Matthews said. Leisure Square is located at 3705 16th St.,Vero Beach.

The self-titled Collective S oul, released in March of 1995, the album that helped define their sound of catchy melodies and guitar driven songs. Containing four outstanding singles (three of which reached No.1), D ecember, The World I Know, Where The River Fl o ws and Gel, it became C ollective Soul's highest selling album to date. The album went Triple-Platinum and spent 76 weeks on the B illboard Top 200 charts. O ther songs they are known for include: Precious D eclaration, Listen, Heavy, Why, Part 2, Vent, Better Now, and Perfect Day, a duet with S ir Elton John. Tremble For My B eloved found Collective S oul on the soundtrack to the 2008 Twilight movie. The long awaited ninth studio album, See What You S tarted By Continuing, to be r eleased in summer of 2014, fully embodies the journey that Collective Soul has taken musically and personally throughout the last two decades. As a band we have experienced and developed so much as musicians and people in the last twenty years," said Ed Roland Collective S oul front man. "This album r epresents a full circle, coming back to the roots of Collective Soul, and continuing to build on the music that we started making from the beginning."

PO Box 850, Fort Pierce, Fl 34954772-465-5656 Looking forward to seeing you ON THE SCENE The rumor has it there are a couple of lakes, besides Okeechobee, that are on fire. Keenenville Lake is one of them. From the r eports I've had there are a lot of fish being caught there. In fact, Roland Martin was seen there making a film for his TV show. Also Garcia Lake was doing well if you can get through all the heavy dead Lilly pads and Hyacens in the canals. I was out there a week or so ago and really had a tough time getting to the fishing grounds because of all the stuff in the water. My partner was talking to a wildlife officer and was told it would be cleaned up in a couple of w eeks. The south was by no means open, but you could get through. Lake Jackson has reported some good to excellent fishing. I was talking with J ohn Picardi of Sebastian this past week and he told me the S tick Marsh is also doing better than it has been. The BIG O is still doing well, so take your pick. Lu re wise you can't go wrong with the spinner bait. U se gold blades for sunny days and silver blades for cloudy days. I find using a trailer of some sort seems to create more bites. That doesn't happen all the time, so add a trailer and see what happens. We also have been getting some really good bites early in the morning on buzz baits with a chartreuse skirt as with the spinner baits, and don't forget to bring your Senkos. Tr y your skinny dippers also. This past Sunday my partner, Dave, and I went and fished the The Big O in and around Horse Island. The bite was slow, but there were quality fish. Unfortunately, I couldn't get to where I wanted to fish as another boat beat me to the punch. We managed to catch three good fish in the 3 / 4pound r ange and saw the other boat catch one in the 5-pound r ange. We caught our fish on S kinny Dippers in heavy hydrilla. That cold snap we just had put a damper on the bite. Things should get better soon, though. I'm looking for you anglers that catch a Big'un or some interesting fishing trip to let me know so we can pass the news on, you can email me at the address given.

TREASURE COAST The N ational Navy UDTSEAL M useum announces its second annual Navy SEAL Golf T ournament Luncheon, A uction and Action on Sunday, April 6 at the Moorings Y acht and Country Club in Ve ro B each. The funds raised by the event will benefit the N ational Navy SEAL Museum and Trident House in S ebastian, which serves as a healing place for our warr iors and a retreat for families of fallen SEALs. "We have packed plenty into this event to make this 2nd annual charity Golf tournament both fun and w ell attended, just like last y ear" said Tom Juliano, chairman for the event. "There will be chipping, putting closest-to-the-pin and hole-in-one contests. W e'll have great prizes, a raffle, a gourmet lunch and a Live and Silent auctions. There will be time to interact with our Navy SEALs and special guests. This year we will also host the FDNY firefighters that will bike ride approximately 1,400 miles from Ground Zero in New Yo rk to The National NavyUDT SEAL Museum in Ft. Pierce. This ride is to bring awareness to the Museum, and the Memorial Trident Ho me in remembrance of all of the lives that were changed by the events of 9/11. This is your opportunity to learn more about the intrigue and stealth of America's most extraordinary and elite fighting men." The event honors the sacr ifices of the navy SEAL community. Tickets for Golf and Lunch are $195 per person and includes lunch, prizes and an auction. L unch and auction only is $35. The mission of the N ational Navy UDT-SEAL M useum is to preserve the history of the US Navy SEALs and their predecessors, including the Underwater Demolition Teams, While at the PGA Me rc handise Show, I find many different things to report on. This year there was an idea throw out to those in attendance. An idea so odd and out of the norm, that most of us laughed when we first heard it. That is, we laughed until we realized the man tossing the idea out there was Mark King, CEO of TaylorMade Golf. At first I thought perhaps he had stayed out far too late the night before entertaining clients. Or maybe one of his kids switched the numbers on his notes in an effort to be funny. None of that was the case. He was quite serious. The idea? King would like to make golf a little bit easier for the high handicapper and the beginner. The way he thinks would best work is to make the hole bigger. A lot bigger! N ext time you bring home a pizza, toss it onto the floor and imagine putting to a hole that big. The regulation golf hole is 4-1/4-inches in diameter. U nder King's proposal, courses would cut holes 15inches in diameter. This would speed up play, because fewer putts equals less time on the green... especially over those kneeknocking four-footers. It would also make the game much easier once you got onto the green as well as when chipping. This, according to King, would keep more people in the game once they start. We all want to shoot lower scores. But do you honestly think someone breaking 80 for the first time because every putt they hit fell into a wash bucket instead of missing a standard hole is going to feel that they have truly accomplished something? Golf is struggling. Ask any course owner, general manager or head professional and they will tell you r ounds are down. Golf is a difficult game and making it easier may bring more people in the door to try the game. A bigger cup will only solve one problem. Sinking putts with become easier. B ut what about hitting a fairway from the tee or even the green if you get the first step right? If it takes you six or seven or 10 shots to get to the green, will one-putting r eally make your day? If y ou ask the companies making clubs or the stores selling them and they will tell you that people are not buying new clubs, balls and so forth. The price of admission is pretty hefty. F ourteen clubs, a bag, shoes, and some silly plaid shorts come at a cost. Granted not everyone gets en expensive set of clubs r ight off the bat, but even the cheap stuff runs a few hundred dollars. If you go for used, there is a chance the technology isn't new either and won't help you when you most need it, which is when you are first learning the game. Ev en if you pick up some decent clubs or are fortunate enough to have some given to you, there is still the price to actually play. Just a bucket of balls will run you around $10. Once you decide to play, you are talking much more. C oupons and off-season r ates may run you $25 or so, but get into the season here in Florida and the rates climb faster than an F-16. How many courses are going to want to invest in new cups? Would you use them once a week? Would y ou have two holes on each green? What is the risk you r un off more players than y ou bring in by trying this idea? We do need to bring more people to the game. I don't think that a 15-inch hole is the answer. Maybe we need a different set of rules to help those just beginning the game. Maybe we need equipment that allows them to play better with less skill. Pe r haps courses should consider allowing for players to play six holes instead of at least nine. S ome new routing designs are doing just this making for cheaper fees and play that only takes about an hour. Tr uth is a vast majority play this game for the love and fun of it. They don't r eally follow the rules and they enjoy themselves without worrying just what r ule 13-1 says. I don't want to take away from those who want the challenge and wish for the winner to be the one with the most skill. B ut we have to do something or this game will become even more elitist than it is. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Let me know what you think and I'll publish the best ideas.

P ublishing 15 community newspapers from Ma r tin County through Volusia County As you already know, gardening offers you lots of benefits over and beyond the joy of picking your own veggies or looking at the glorious colors of your flower garden. Gardening offers exercise, lots of fresh air, mental therapy and the savings you reap when you pick veggies from your own garden. This week, I am going to discuss some tips on getting your garden r eady for planting and offer some tips on what to plant. When planning a vegetable garden, it is important to choose a location that is well drained and near y our structure. The location needs to be in an area where y ou have a readily available source of water. The garden should also be in an area where the plants will receive at least five hours of sunlight. Areas with too much shade or sun all day long will cause problems with the growth of your plants. T oo little sun can lead to fungus diseases and low crop yields. Too much sun can cause burning of the plants and a reduced crop yield. Remember that you should not plant your garden in the same location y ear after year. The soil will get depleted of vital nutrients so it is best to rotate y our locations each year. In F lorida, our soil is very sandy so it is essential to add organic nutrients to the soil. If you have a compost pile, use the organic matter from it and spread it throughout the area you plant to plant in. You can also buy pre-mixed top soils that contain organic material to mix throughout y our garden area. It is always a good idea to test the pH value of your soil. These meters can be purchased at many home and garden centers. The ph v alue of your soil should lie somewhere between 5.6 and 7.0. If the pH of your soil is low, add some lime to y our soil before planting. A pH that is too high is actually difficult to change but adding the organic matter will relax it a bit. Once your garden is plowed, composted and checked for pH, it's time to get started. It is always a good idea to get some good quality vegetable fertilizer and all-purpose insect spray designed for vegetables and fruits. You will need both in the not too distant future. No w that your plot is r eady, it's time to populate it with seeds or liners. You might want to start with some of your old favorites such as tomatoes, carrots, r adishes or peppers. These are some of the easier plants to grow, especially if y ou are going to start from seed. You might want to take the challenge, however, and try some more challenging choices such as squash, watermelon, southern peas or eggplant. It is important to r emember that if you live in a location that does not allow you to plant in the yard such as an apartment, y ou can always resort to planting your seeds in large containers with excellent results. This has the added benefit of being able to move your garden in the event of severe w eather events. In the coming weeks I will address some specific plants such as tomatoes, lettuce and other garden va r ieties. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

IS THIS R EALLY NEEDED?The programs on your computer and what c an be uninstalled P ageA6 INSIDEINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Construction of a new Indian River C ounty school district administration center will begin this summer at a district-owned parcel near S torm Grove Middle School. The question, to build or not to build, has been on the table for some years as the Indian River C ounty school board has tried to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, but now the board has decided a new facility is the best choice. The estimated cost of the new building is $7.3 million, which will be funded through sales of unused district property, a net balance of funds leftover from the construction of Storm Grove Middle School and budgeted capital dollars. B oard member Matthew Morrison said from a purely financial point of view, building a new building just makes sense. The school district currently leases its administration building from Indian River County, yet it is r esponsible for maintenance and upkeep. The building is old and r equires extensive r epairs to get it back in good working order, but putting capital dollars into a building that is r ented should be avoided at all costs, Mr. McCain said. The rent money comes from the school districts operating budget, and once the districts ownSchool board votes to build new administration center IR Lic.#4714 772-569-0200 www.popcornremoval.comOccupied Homes Our Speciality POPCORN CEILINGSRemoved,Replaced with Knock DownJOSEPH STEVENS AND SONSLicensed,Bonded & Insured All Major Credit Cards AcceptedJMJ Guaranteed Work Since 1970Thanks To God Who Created Us!

African-American pioneers recognized INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Three African-American men were recognized by the In dian River County Board of County Commissioners for their impact to the community last week. In a proclamation honoring African-American Pioneer Day, Willie Griffieth, J oseph Brown and Alvin R. Thomas were commended for paving the way for future generations in business, public and elected arenas. I ndian River County S heriffs Deputy Teddy Fl oy d and Gifford community leader Freddie Woolfork sought out potential candidates for the recognition and brought the final nominees to the boards attention. F ebruary is AfricanAmerican history month, so this was a great time to recognize some of our own history, not just in Gifford, but all over Indian River County, Deputy Floyd said. Mr. Thomas and Mr. Bro wn both appeared in the chambers on Feb. 18 to thank commissioners for their recognition. Thank you for considering me for my contribution to Fellsmere, Mr. Thomas said. Mr. Thomas, originally from Jamaica West Indies was the first black man to serve on the Fellsmere City C ouncil after his appointment in 1978. He served on the council through 1982 and subsequently ran for and won election to council and was named interim mayor that year. He was elected mayor in 1983 and served in that capacity through 1985. He was reappointed to city council in 1989 to fill the unexpired term of Joe W ashington, another African-American who died in 1989. In 1990, he was again elected as a councilmember and was selected to serve as Mayor ProT em and served until 1992, the proclamation said. Dur ing the meeting, Mr. Thomas said he was grateful that the county commis-By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com See P IONEERS, A2To educate and enforceINDIAN RIVER COUNTY For the past few weeks, Alexis Thomas, 23, has been pinching herself to make sure her new job as Indian River County storm water educator and fertilizer enforcement officer isnt a dream. The recent University of S outh Florida graduate beat out all other applicants for the new position created by the county specifically to address lagoon impact from nutrients found in fertilizer, said Chris Mora, Indian River C ounty public works director. Alexis had the best combination of education, background and experience, the best credentials out of all of them. And shes a lifelong r esident so shes familiar with the lagoon, Mr. Mora said. Ms. Thomas was raised in I ndian River County, attending Osceola Magnet School, S ebastian River Middle School and graduated from S ebastian River High School. As early as elementary school, Ms. Thomas took an interest in environmental concerns and that interest blossomed into volunteering at the Environmental Learning Center in Wabasso during high school and then obtaining a bachelors degree in environmental science. As is the case with many college graduates these days, after graduation in 2013, none of the jobs she applied for came through so she kept busy working at a local law office until almost a year later she heard of the new position in her own backyard. I was really lucky. God just lined everything up for me, Ms. Thomas said. One of the elements that gave Ms. Thomas an edge ov er her competitors was her internship with the storm water division in Hillsborough County. Her experience there will translate well to her new position in Indian River C ounty, Mr. Mora said. W e re very excited to have her. Shes young and enthusiastic and has already jumped in with both feet, he said. Last week, Ms. Thomas traveled to all of the sites where Indian River County is already working on projects to benefit the lagoon, including Egret Marsh, where she participated in harvesting Staff hired to oversee county fertilizer ordinance adherenceBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com Photo provided by Alexis ThomasAs part of training for her new role as storm water educ ator and fertilizer enforcement officer, Alexis Thomas visited county-run Egret Marsh to assist with algae harvesting. She will be tasked with educating the public on lagoon-safe practices and enforcing fertilizer ordinance violations. Ms. Thomas, 23, is lifelong resident of Indian River County and a recent University of South Florida graduate.See ENFORCE, A3T ips to guide y ou through the warm weather veggies Rec.

sion continued to recognize God in their meetings. Though he originally came to Fellsmere and found work at what is now known as F ellsmere Farms, he remembers his years on council with fondness. I took my responsibility and obligations very seriously. I have never forgotten my oath of office, Mr. Thomas said. A1984 St. Petersburg Times article records that in 1978 the city of Fellsmere was near bankruptcy and while three members of the city council quit in an attempt to dissolve the city, Mr. Thomas and a few others in the community decided to take drastic measures to pay off the citys debt. An auction was held to r aise the funds needed to pay back the state department of natural resources. I remember when staff was being paid with IOUs, but I never gave up, Mr. Thomas said during the commission meeting. Mr. Brown, a Wabasso resident, is a contemporary pioneer, currently holding the position of criminal justice academy coordinator for the In dian River State Colleges law enforcement academy. He thanked commissioners for recognizing him in such a way. A former deputy with Indian River County Sheriffs Office, Mr. Brown began teaching at the college as an adjunct in the 2001-02 year. Fr om both his experience as a deputy and now working at the college as the first African-American criminal justice coordinator, Mr. Bro wn has seen and touched the lives of many in the community, including youth that have grown up and sought a career in law enforcement. Thats how I met Teddy (Floyd). He would come and go on ride-alongs with me, Mr. Brown said. A t the end of the day, and Ive had 27 plus years in law enforcement, I cant think of a better way to give back to the community than to have this job, Mr. Brown said. And hes still making an impact on the community today, Deputy Floyd said. The third honoree, Mr. Griffieth, now resides in Georgia, but was represented at the meeting by cousins S haron and Karen Griffieth. In 1983, Mr. Griffieth was the first African-American to W ABASSO A national search is underway for a new Environmental Learning Center leader as cofounder and executive director Holly Dill has announced her decision to r etire later this year. S he will continue to hold her position until someone else can be found to take ov er the position, but the shoes she leaves are going to be very big to fill, said Carl M iller, chairman of the nonprofits communication committee. I have worked with Holly for the past 25 years; she is the backbone of the Envir onmental Learning Center. We are absolutely going to miss her, but she has definitely earned her retirement status, Mr. Miller said. Ms. Dill has held the position of executive director since the environmental education nature center was created 25 years ago, playing a major role in bringing the nonprofit organization to life on its 64-acre campus on W abasso Island, a press r elease said. U nder her leadership, the learning center has provided hands-on, environmental education experiences to more than 400,000 people, including 60,000 first, third, and fourth grade students, as part of the Indian River C ounty School District curr iculum, the release said. Dur ing those 25 years, some of the challenges she faced were fairly substantial, Mr. Miller said. Aside from getting the center started, the 2004 hurr icanes caused a lot of damage to the facility. But the biggest hurdle was probably when they lost a major building to a lightning strike in 2008, Mr. Miller said. They had to rebuild from there, and what they have now is excellent, he said. In a press release, Ms. Dill said she will be staying close to home during retirement. I m looking forward to having more personal time to explore the environment Ive been working to protect for year, Ms. Dill said. A re laxing ride on the St. S ebastian River in my jon boat, a walk in a nearby park, or a stroll on the ELCs boardwalks. It will be a pleasure to play in nature, she said.

What Ive found is that everyone has been talking about the fertilizer ordinance for the past year, but many people have no idea what is in it, or they have r ead a few things, but they are still confused, Ms. Thomas said. S ome of her first steps to educate the public on the standards of the ordinance have been to film an education video that will be played on the government channel in the near future.

The next time you see or know of a child being abused, call DCF and the police and tell them a dog is being abused and you will see them turn up in a rush to save that dog, It seems people don't give a crap about children anymore .It's the poor, abused dogs. I think people have really gone nuts. They seem to think more of dogs then they do kids, and to think the taxpayers are paying the people that work at DCF to sit on their butts and do nothing about the abuse of children. They need to be investigated.Dont extend benefitsIf the left gets its way, unemployment compensation will go on forever. The number of job seekers dwarfs the number of jobs available. Therefore, extended benefits do much more harm than they do good. Paying people not to work incentivizes them not to look for work. E xtending payments, as suggested by President Obama, increases the likelihood that they will have a much more difficult time reentering the workforce. He believes recipients will vote for him. He should be much more concerned about America's financial wellbeing as well as America's future.L eave your dogs at homeI have noticed that many people bring their dogs into grocery stores. I would think that is a violation of the health codes. These people put their dogs in the grocery carts, many times in the child seat. Do they realize that dogs do not wear depends or use toilet paper and that the next person is going to put their food in the cart the dog just got out of? I have a friend that has a child that is severely allergic to dog hair. They put their child in a cart and the child started to have a hard time breathing. They then noticed that the child seat was covered with dog hair. I have owned dogs all my life, they were a family member, but if we were going somewhere the dog should not the dog stayed home.Dont vote for HillaryWe made a terrible mistake when we voted for the first black president, ignoring his lack of credentials for the office. Let's not make a similar mistake by electing an unqualified woman, just because she is a female. As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton cheapened the lives of four brave Americans who were killed in Benghazi. We should be certain the first woman president is qualified but, above all else, honest and truthful.F ed up with the system?K udos to another person who is fed up with the welfare system as it is. You want to fix it? Then vote out every freaking liberal politician you can. Those up in Washington have the thoughts that by upping the minim wage will fix the problem. No, there are those who are poverty stricken by no fault of their own, but there are some by choice, mainly because they want that government check. The liberals miss the mark in our country. We have an education system that is paid for by the working class. Its called the public school system. Then we have another system, also paid by the working class and their tax payer dollars its called the public library system. The library does a free r eading class for toddlers. How many single mothers bring the kids to this? I know a few people who have daughters on the system and have more than one kid. These people are great manipulators and they'll twist the truth to fit their needs. They make great actors as well. Mid-term elections are approaching, and now is the time to clean house and senate. For those who dislike these types of r ants, well bottom line, you dont want to hear the truth. T wo ideas for SebastianI just read that the city Of Sebastian has a budget surplus of $5.5 million dollars and that the budget director said now is the time to spend some of it, I agree. I have two suggestions. First, I suggest that the citywide drainage problem be fixed. I have lived here for four years, my neighbor, a lot longer, and the problem remains the same. Why doesn't a member of council take the bull by the horns and get it fixed? Second, it is time to get rid of the septic tanks and get a sewer system. I know this is an expensive project, but with federal and state funding, it can be done. The remaining costs for the project could be financed by the city and r epaid in installments by property owners. I believe these two completed projects would increase property values and also help to save the Lagoon.News for toll road usersF or the toll patrons that still stop and get a ticket from the automatic dispenser, you will note that the tickets are stamped with the time that you received the tickets . and they expire 12 hours later. When they are expired, the collector is required to charge you the maximum distance from that particular plaza. As long as you aren't planning to be gone, from the plaza that you entered, more than 11 hours and 59 minutes the following will save you money: (1) If, when you stop and pick up your ticket, there are no cars behind you, you can back up (safely) about 20 feet and then pull back up to the ticket machine it will dispense another ticket. This second ticket can be used, as long as you exit at the same plaza that you entered, as a U-turn priced ticket. U-turn costs at every plaza are different but if you entered the toll road at the Port St. Lucie plaza and returned 11 hours later, for example, the collector would charge you 40 cents even though you got your ticket from Lantana an hour earlier . just don't use the Lantana ticket at exit plaza. And, if you commute back and forth to work every day, you can do this every day. The deputy director of tolls knows that the machines don't always dispense a ticket when a vehicle pulls up but if you leave without a ticket, she has directed that the collectors, when you get off at your exit plaza to charge you the maximum distance unless you can produce proof of where you entered earlier and didn't get a ticket. The collectors don't have a choice in what they are required to do. C ollectors have been directed, through a memo posted at the plazas to make these unreasonable charges. Got something to say?

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, FEB. 28, 2014 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM A song for healing Many people are surprised when they get their new machine home and someone sends them email with a Word or XL document attached and they cannot open it. "Isn't this thing supposed to be able to handle these files already?" I often hear. The assumption people make is, if they get a machine with enough horsepower, RAM and hard drive space that it ought to do anything they need it to and, to a degree that is true. But the one thing that's missing is the software (or program) to do the job. Pr ograms that are installed after Windows are loaded enhance the system and allow the computer to run at its full potential. What programs we need installed depends on the files that we are trying to open and work with. A lot of the files that we work with on the Internet, such as .jpg, .html and .txt files all will open with the built in W indows applications (called "applets") but other files, such as .xls, .doc, .pdf and .ppt need programs that specifically handle those kinds of files. The three-letter extension is what identifies to the computer what kind of file it is, what icon to display for it and what program to use to open it. If the program that is r equired to open a file is not installed on the machine, then the file will be displayed with a generic Windows icon. When you try to open it, the computer will open a screen listing all the installed applications asking what program y ou want to use to open it. The computer takes a look at the file, doesn't recognize it so it lists all the programs installed and lets you pick what program to open it with because it doesn't have a clue. U nfortunately, when we see that program list, usually we don't have a clue what to open it with either, for the same reason the computer got stumped: there is no program installed for that type of file. So that brings us back to the beginning with the question of what programs does a typical computer need installed, on top of Windows, in order to be able to handle most of the file formats that everyone else in the world is using? Why is it that some machines can already handle certain files and some machines cannot? And, when y ou buy a computer, what should you look for as far as "bundled" software goes? Let's take the last question first and talk about "bundled" software. Some computer manufacturers have made deals with software vendors to "bundle" their software with every computer they sell. They, of course, get some sort of commission for including the software in with the price of the machine, but where things get tricky is every computer manufacturer has a different bundling agreement (or none at all) so every computer comes with different software loaded on top of W indows. What that means is one computer bought from one manufacturer will usually have different software installed than what may be installed in another computer of the same hardware specs (horsepower) from another manufacturer. Whew. Say that one three times fast! OK, so you've decided to get a new computer. What bundled software should you look for (above and beyond Windows) that will allow you to do some of the more common tasks without getting the dreaded "unknown file type message?" W ell, the most common bundle that ought to be installed is some level of Office Suite. An office suite, (such as MS Office, Open Office or even Wor ks Office), is a package of software to handle Word processing, spreadsheets, databases, etc.; a must-have for productivity. F or things such as .pdf files (adobe portable document) the Acrobat reader can be installed. Adobe Reader and O pen Office are free and can sometimes be found bundled with other software or easily downloaded from the Internet. B ut that is the subject of another column altogether.

Over the eight month period, thousands of sea turtles will emerge from the ocean to dig a nest on the beach and lay their eggs. In J une tiny hatchlings will begin to make their way to the ocean. M ost Floridians are familiar with the triangle stakes scattered along beaches marking nests, but many dont realize that only a small percentage of them are marked and the primary r eason isnt always for protection, but tracking population growth. E cological Associates of J ensen Beach is responsible for some of the turtle monitoring and marking along portions of Indian River, St. L ucie and Martin counties, but there are many agencies that cover the miles of beaches along the Treasure C oast. EAI just found the first nest of the season on Jupiter I sland on Feb. 20. W e re excited about that, said Niki Desjardin, project manager at EAI. B ut the fact is that sea turtles are endangered and threatened species and now that their nesting season has begun, there is much beachgoers can do to help protect the beloved creatures. The Florida Oceanographic Society in Stuart offers education and public outr each to the community, giving people a chance to learn, see turtles up close, and understand how to keep them safe. O ur mission is to inspire environmental stewardship, said Michelle Byriel, education and exhibit specialist at FOS who leads the guided turtle walks in the summer that give individuals a chance to watch the nesting process. Theyre very important to our whole ecosystem and the environment that we live in, Ms. Byriel said. Thats why its so important for anyone visiting the beach or living on or near it to be cautious and conscientious. Ms. Byriel warns people not to leave trash and debris on the beach, including fishing line and plastic bags that can be especially dangerous for turtles, fill in any holes children might dig, and level any sand sculptures before they leave for the day. It s also impermissible for anyone to conduct their o wn turtle walks. Curious intruders can easily frighten a turtle and deter it from nesting. FOS has a permit to conduct its walks. M any counties, including Mar tin, St. Lucie and Indian River, have ordinances limiting or prohibiting lights on the beach during nesting season, including porch lights on homes on or near the beach. Lamps, flashlights and camera flashes can all disorient nesting turtles. Theres a lot for the public to be aware of when theyre out on the beach, Ms. Desjardin said. She advised visitors to keep dogs from digging on the beach and not disturb the trails sea turtles leave behind that mark where their nests are and allow organizations like EAI to collect their data. As nesting season begins, conservation organizations and the general public can work together to protect the leatherback, loggerhead and green sea turtles that use local beaches to lay their eggs. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 28, 2014 V ero Beach A9 1-800-823-0466 AFFORDABLE NON-LAWYER SOLUTIONS, INC.The Name You Can Trust Since 1996Rebecca A.

The days events are free of charge, thanks to a host of local businesses as sponsors, with the exception of food and drink purchases. Pr oceeds from the day will assist in expanding facility hours, underwriting summer camp scholarship and defraying costs associated with the building of the new poolside pavilion, a press release said. F ood vendors will be on hand with lunch, novelty food items and cold drinks. Recreation has attacked from all sides, budgetarywise, the past few years, Mr. Matthews said. R ecently, interested community members formed committees through the city of Vero Beach to brainstorm ideas on how to keep signature Vero Beach events, activities and facilities open on such tight budgets. One idea that has already been carried out with great success was the H oliday Rec Run, held in D ecember at Royal Palm P ointe in Vero Beach. This weekends event is similar as it will benefit Leisure Square activities, Mr. Matthews said. Leisure Square is located at 3705 16th St.,Vero Beach.

Band brings familiar songs to SunriseFORT PIERCE Collective S oul, celebrating their 20th music anniversary of seven number one rock hits, a double platinum album, a triple platinum album and more than 10 million albums sold across the world, will rock the Sunrise Theatre on Friday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. O pening act is Ed Kowalczk, former lead singer of Live who helped define alternative rock into what it is today. Kowalczk kicked off the next chapter in his career by r eleasing a new solo album and revisiting his complete body of work with the I Alone Acoustic Tour. H ailing from Atlanta, Collective Soul shot to international fame with their 1993 r elease Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, and their mega, No. 1 hit, Shine.

The album went Triple-Platinum and spent 76 weeks on the B illboard Top 200 charts.

The long awaited ninth studio album, See What You S tarted By Continuing, to be r eleased in summer of 2014, fully embodies the journey that Collective Soul has taken musically and personally throughout the last two decades. As a band we have experienced and developed so much as musicians and people in the last twenty years, said Ed Roland Collective S oul front man.

PO Box 850, Fort Pierce, Fl 34954772-465-5656 Looking forward to seeing you ON THE SCENE The rumor has it there are a couple of lakes, besides Okeechobee, that are on fire. Keenenville Lake is one of them. From the r eports I've had there are a lot of fish being caught there. In fact, Roland Martin was seen there making a film for his TV show. Also Garcia Lake was doing well if you can get through all the heavy dead Lilly pads and Hyacens in the canals. I was out there a week or so ago and really had a tough time getting to the fishing grounds because of all the stuff in the water. My partner was talking to a wildlife officer and was told it would be cleaned up in a couple of w eeks. The south was by no means open, but you could get through. Lake Jackson has reported some good to excellent fishing. I was talking with J ohn Picardi of Sebastian this past week and he told me the S tick Marsh is also doing better than it has been. The BIG O is still doing well, so take your pick. Lu re wise you can't go wrong with the spinner bait. U se gold blades for sunny days and silver blades for cloudy days. I find using a trailer of some sort seems to create more bites. That doesnt happen all the time, so add a trailer and see what happens. We also have been getting some really good bites early in the morning on buzz baits with a chartreuse skirt as with the spinner baits, and don't forget to bring your Senkos. Tr y your skinny dippers also. This past Sunday my partner, Dave, and I went and fished the The Big O in and around Horse Island. The bite was slow, but there were quality fish. Unfortunately, I couldn't get to where I wanted to fish as another boat beat me to the punch. We managed to catch three good fish in the 3 / 4pound r ange and saw the other boat catch one in the 5-pound r ange. We caught our fish on S kinny Dippers in heavy hydrilla. That cold snap we just had put a damper on the bite. Things should get better soon, though. I'm looking for you anglers that catch a Big'un or some interesting fishing trip to let me know so we can pass the news on, you can email me at the address given.

TREASURE COAST The N ational Navy UDTSEAL M useum announces its second annual Navy SEAL Golf T ournament Luncheon, A uction and Action on Sunday, April 6 at the Moorings Y acht and Country Club in Ve ro Beach. The funds raised by the event will benefit the N ational Navy SEAL Museum and Trident House in S ebastian, which serves as a healing place for our warr iors and a retreat for families of fallen SEALs. "We have packed plenty into this event to make this 2nd annual charity Golf tournament both fun and w ell attended, just like last y ear" said Tom Juliano, chairman for the event. "There will be chipping, putting closest-to-the-pin and hole-in-one contests. W e'll have great prizes, a raffle, a gourmet lunch and a Live and Silent auctions. There will be time to interact with our Navy SEALs and special guests. This year we will also host the FDNY firefighters that will bike ride approximately 1,400 miles from Ground Zero in New Yo rk to The National NavyUDT SEAL Museum in Ft. Pierce. This ride is to bring awareness to the Museum, and the Memorial Trident Ho me in remembrance of all of the lives that were changed by the events of 9/11. This is your opportunity to learn more about the intrigue and stealth of Americas most extraordinary and elite fighting men." The event honors the sacr ifices of the navy SEAL community. Tickets for Golf and Lunch are $195 per person and includes lunch, prizes and an auction. L unch and auction only is $35. The mission of the N ational Navy UDT-SEAL M useum is to preserve the history of the US Navy SEALs and their predecessors, including the Underwater Demolition Teams, While at the PGA Me rc handise Show, I find many different things to report on. This year there was an idea throw out to those in attendance. An idea so odd and out of the norm, that most of us laughed when we first heard it. That is, we laughed until we realized the man tossing the idea out there was Mark King, CEO of TaylorMade Golf. At first I thought perhaps he had stayed out far too late the night before entertaining clients. Or maybe one of his kids switched the numbers on his notes in an effort to be funny. None of that was the case. He was quite serious. The idea? King would like to make golf a little bit easier for the high handicapper and the beginner. The way he thinks would best work is to make the hole bigger. A lot bigger! N ext time you bring home a pizza, toss it onto the floor and imagine putting to a hole that big. The regulation golf hole is 4-1/4-inches in diameter. U nder King's proposal, courses would cut holes 15inches in diameter. This would speed up play, because fewer putts equals less time on the green... especially over those kneeknocking four-footers. It would also make the game much easier once you got onto the green as well as when chipping. This, according to King, would keep more people in the game once they start. We all want to shoot lower scores. But do you honestly think someone breaking 80 for the first time because every putt they hit fell into a wash bucket instead of missing a standard hole is going to feel that they have truly accomplished something? Golf is struggling. Ask any course owner, general manager or head professional and they will tell you r ounds are down. Golf is a difficult game and making it easier may bring more people in the door to try the game. A bigger cup will only solve one problem. Sinking putts with become easier. B ut what about hitting a fairway from the tee or even the green if you get the first step right? If it takes you six or seven or 10 shots to get to the green, will one-putting r eally make your day? If you ask the companies making clubs or the stores selling them and they will tell you that people are not buying new clubs, balls and so forth. The price of admission is pretty hefty. F ourteen clubs, a bag, shoes, and some silly plaid shorts come at a cost. Granted not everyone gets en expensive set of clubs r ight off the bat, but even the cheap stuff runs a few hundred dollars. If you go for used, there is a chance the technology isn't new either and won't help you when you most need it, which is when you are first learning the game. Ev en if you pick up some decent clubs or are fortunate enough to have some given to you, there is still the price to actually play. Just a bucket of balls will run you around $10. Once you decide to play, you are talking much more. C oupons and off-season r ates may run you $25 or so, but get into the season here in Florida and the rates climb faster than an F-16. How many courses are going to want to invest in new cups? Would you use them once a week? Would y ou have two holes on each green? What is the risk you r un off more players than y ou bring in by trying this idea? We do need to bring more people to the game. I don't think that a 15-inch hole is the answer. Maybe we need a different set of rules to help those just beginning the game. Maybe we need equipment that allows them to play better with less skill. Per haps courses should consider allowing for players to play six holes instead of at least nine. S ome new routing designs are doing just this making for cheaper fees and play that only takes about an hour. Tr uth is a vast majority play this game for the love and fun of it. They don't r eally follow the rules and they enjoy themselves without worrying just what r ule 13-1 says. I don't want to take away from those who want the challenge and wish for the winner to be the one with the most skill. B ut we have to do something or this game will become even more elitist than it is. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Let me know what you think and I'll publish the best ideas.

P ublishing 15 community newspapers from Mar tin County through Volusia County As you already know, gardening offers you lots of benefits over and beyond the joy of picking your own veggies or looking at the glorious colors of your flower garden. Gardening offers exercise, lots of fresh air, mental therapy and the savings you reap when you pick veggies from your own garden. This week, I am going to discuss some tips on getting your garden r eady for planting and offer some tips on what to plant. When planning a vegetable garden, it is important to choose a location that is well drained and near y our structure. The location needs to be in an area where y ou have a readily available source of water. The garden should also be in an area where the plants will receive at least five hours of sunlight. Areas with too much shade or sun all day long will cause problems with the growth of your plants. T oo little sun can lead to fungus diseases and low crop yields. Too much sun can cause burning of the plants and a reduced crop yield. Remember that you should not plant your garden in the same location y ear after year. The soil will get depleted of vital nutrients so it is best to rotate y our locations each year. In F lorida, our soil is very sandy so it is essential to add organic nutrients to the soil. If you have a compost pile, use the organic matter from it and spread it throughout the area you plant to plant in. You can also buy pre-mixed top soils that contain organic material to mix throughout y our garden area. It is always a good idea to test the pH value of your soil. These meters can be purchased at many home and garden centers. The ph v alue of your soil should lie somewhere between 5.6 and 7.0. If the pH of your soil is low, add some lime to y our soil before planting. A pH that is too high is actually difficult to change but adding the organic matter will relax it a bit. Once your garden is plowed, composted and checked for pH, its time to get started. It is always a good idea to get some good quality vegetable fertilizer and all-purpose insect spray designed for vegetables and fruits. You will need both in the not too distant future. Now that your plot is r eady, its time to populate it with seeds or liners. You might want to start with some of your old favorites such as tomatoes, carrots, r adishes or peppers. These are some of the easier plants to grow, especially if y ou are going to start from seed. You might want to take the challenge, however, and try some more challenging choices such as squash, watermelon, southern peas or eggplant. It is important to r emember that if you live in a location that does not allow you to plant in the yard such as an apartment, y ou can always resort to planting your seeds in large containers with excellent results. This has the added benefit of being able to move your garden in the event of severe w eather events. In the coming weeks I will address some specific plants such as tomatoes, lettuce and other garden var ieties. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.
