While they may have participated in other sports in the past, 13 girls from Vero Beach H igh School, Masters Academy and Gifford Middle School, have banded together to learn the sport of rowing with help from the local nonprofit Indian River Rowing Club. Ru by H ollinger, 16, team coxswain, said learning to row is exciting, fun and a lot of hard work. I used to run cross-country, but I sprained my ankle and couldnt do it anymore, Ruby said. In looking for a spring sport to play, she learned that other schools in the area, including S ebastian River High School and Saint Edwards School had ro wing programs, but Vero B each High School had none. How ever, she found out that the Indian River Rowing Club had secured a meeting place alongside the Youth Sailing F oundation on the south sideFirefighters fair delivers lots of funINDIAN RIVER COUNTY M osquitos are pesky insects that can drive some Indian River County residents crazy, but their very presence, and the presence of an entomology laboratory, has drawn attention from all over North America and other parts of the world. Pr ofessor Roxanne Connelly, a medical entomology specialist at the Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory on Oslo R oad, just finished up teaching a one-of-kind two-week class on mosquito identification for 21 students, including some from Canada and Nigeria.

SEBASTIAN Thousands of little y ellow rubber duckies will be splishing and splashing in the lagoon next month as part of a fundraiser for Treasure Coast Community Health. The Treasure Coast Community H ealth Foundation, the fundraising arm of the nonprofit community health center, will present the second annual Gr eat Duck Derby on April 6 from noon to 4 p.m. at Captain Hirams facilities in Sebastian. I ndividual duck adoptions are $5 each, and package adoption rates are available, said Colette Heid, spokeswoman for Treasure Coast Community H ealth. One hundred percent of the profits from the event will go toward funding the various programs by Treasure Coast C ommunity Health, including pediatrics, family practice, gynecology, psychiatry, dentistry and behavioral health, she said. D epending on how many ducks are adopted, there could be anywhere from 5,000 to 7,500 bobbing toys dropped into the lagoon during the event. Paddleboarders and wakeboarders will be in the water around them creating waves and pushing the ducks toward the shoreline at Captain Hirams, Ms. H eid said. The ducks will go into the water about 2 p.m. and it takes about 30 minutes for them to get to shore, she said. On the Great Duck Derby website, adoption packages are listed in full and include everything from a couple of D uck Pals for $10 to a Golden Flock of 55 ducks for $200. Dur ing the family-friendly event, participants will be treated to live music, provided by Captain Hirams, face painting and craft opportunities for the children, as well as waddle r aces, Ms. Heid said. Tr easure Coast Community Health is a federally-qualified community health center dedicated to meeting the medical, dental and mental health needs of non-insured and under-insured members of the community. This is accomplished by providing accessible, costeffective, high quality, comprehensive health care to residents regardless of socio-economic circumstances, a press r elease said.

ov er books, stereoscopes and microscopes in their classroom, The B oathouse, reading about physical characteristics of the insects and comparing them to the examples on their microscope slides. J ess Rowland, a University of Florida graduate student, is pursuing an interdisciplinary degree that involves solving complex health issues by studying human, animal, ecological and envir onmental health issues. M y focus is vector-borne diseases, so this is a different way to look at health issues for me, Ms. Rowland said. The advanced mosquito identification course teaches students to visually identify more than 150 species of mosquito in both the adult and aquatic stages, Professor Connelly said. The course is tough and students must pass four exams before receiving their certification. Many of the students have different reasons to pursue the certification, but one thing is constant, they want to learn, Professor C onnelly said. I n 14 years weve only had two fails. O ur goal here is that everyone learns the material before they leave, she said. The course is accredited by the University of Florida and is apparently the only mosquito identification course offered in the world, Professor Connelly said. I ask the students from overseas why they chose to come here and I was surprised to know they didnt have anything like this in their home country, Professor Connelly said. In this years course, students included U.S. Navy medical entomologists, members of mosquito control boards in Florida and Oregon, physicians, field biologists and university professors. T om Chapman a social biologist and professor of entomology at Memorial U niversity of Newfoundland, enjoyed having a reason to get away from the white winter weather and build his knowledge base. He was asked by a veterinarian in N ew Foundland to learn more about the insects as not many people in their home have background in mosquitos specifically. H is associate, Kate Bassett, also took the course this month. I m used to identifying mosquitos by their DNA, but this will help me identify them by sight, she said. Pr ofessor Connelly was assisted in teaching the class by retired entomologist George OMeara. Pr ofessor Connelly holds her doctorate degree in philosophy from Louisiana State University and has majored in entomology in all of her degrees. She has been working at the laboratory in Vero Beach since 2006. The Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory is located at 200 Ninth St. S.E., Vero Beach.

Car eersource Research Coast, formerly Wor kforce Solutions, has arranged for a mobile career center to be stationed in the Gifford community every Wednesday. The mobile career center is parked at the Gifford Youth Activity Center on 43rd Av enue from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and has averaged six people per day since opening on Feb. 19, said Odaly Victorio, spokeswoman for CareerSource. H elene Caseltine, director of economic development for the chamber, said it makes sense to bring resources closer to the people that need them, and this is definitely true of job seekers. H aving a second CareerSource mobile unit in Gifford makes it easier for those in the Gifford community and nearby neighborhoods who are looking for a job, and for those who might want to upgrade their skills for a better job, to access the r esources available on the mobile unit, Ms. Caseltine said. Last summer during chamber workshops, residents of Gifford said one of their areas of need was in finding jobs, so this new unit location is following up on that voiced desire, she said. G ifford has an extremely high rate of unemployment compared to other parts of Indian River County and the region, plus many jobseekers dont have transportation, so having a central location such as the Gifford Youth Activities Center brings the resources to them, Ms. C aseltine said. It is recommended that clients visit the mobile unit as if they were going to an interview, but other than that, all that is r equired to start the steps toward finding a job is that personal visit, Ms. Victorio said. Car eerSource is not the unemployment office; rather, they are a nonprofit organization that provides programs, services and resources to help job seekers find their own employment at no cost, she said. F or example, the mobile unit is equipped with computers and Internet access and staffed with people knowledgeable about websites that may have job listings. Priority placement services are provided to veterans. Staff can also help with career planning and skills and aptitude assessments, according to the organizations website.By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com Cliff Partlow /staff photographerKate Bassett, whose working on her Masters degree and Tom Chapman a professor, both from the Memorial University of Newfoundland examine mosquito larvae for identification.CourseF rom page 1 See BU S, page 5

Daylight Savings TimeI read something about Ben Fr anklin's association with the concept of "Daylight Saving Time." The story I have often heard is that he did indeed introduce the idea to Congress of establishing such a policy. How ever, the members of Congress at the time immediately realized it was a joke the wily Franklin was attempting to play on them. They knew then that no matter what laws are passed there will be the same amount of daylight as usual. They had a higher degree of intelligence than our current representatives and obviously a more refined sense of humor (which often is associated with a higher I.Q.). Perhaps they acknowledged that a higher power would determine what time the sun would rise and set and did not bow to laws passed by Congress or other manmade entities? It is time to get r id of this useless practice. Leave the time where it is now set from now on.A word of thanksI was in a car accident on Thursday night. I want to rave about all the angels that came and helped us. My son immediately got out of the car and a woman named Amie helped him and gave him a phone to use. A y oung woman helped me to get out of the car and lay down until the paramedics arrived. An angel named Stephanie held me and tried to keep me calm. Neighbors and people were everywhere helping and just staying with me. I still am not sure what exactly happened but I wanted to thank all of the wonderful people who were there M ike, a neighbor brought a blanket to warm me, Stephanie; she was wonderful to me, Amie and David for staying with Tony. I am sorry those are all the names I remember. I know there were many more people there. We are so blessed to have the amazing emergency techs, firefighters and the patrol that we do. I am sorry I am not sure if it was IRC Sheriff or FHP, but thank you. We are okay and I pray that the person in the other car is as w ell. Thank you very much one and all.F ood stamp program doesnt help those who need itI wanted to bring my comments to y ou on the real need for food stamp program restructuring. I am married with three children, and lost my job back in February of 2008. We had little funds available for basic living. My wife works part-time and makes just enough for gas and a few groceries. I applied for emergency food stamps from the Department of Children and Families and was denied because our household earned more than $100 a month. I was set back by this action and could not understand why I could not receive some sort of help. I had many conversations with that department with little to no help at all. Since the time that I applied, I have recently been employed fulltime, but with half the wages that I was making before, so we had to relocate to a lesser than adequate home with the bills still being more than we bring in. I have worked my whole life and have served in the Navy for this great country of ours and have always helped the needy when we could. I think that the system should be able to help us in our time of need. The only conclusion that I can come up with is that we would be better just to be jobless; that way we could receive all the benefits the system offers. I know that this is not what should be, but you would think that you could get some sort of assistance just to see you through the short hard time. We have had a little help from our church and thank God every day for the blessings in our life. I just wonder if there are any other families that have similar circumstances. There should be someone out there that sees what is going on and should look into this problem.In responseThis is a response to the person Got something to say?

Pro viding high-quality customer care is a consistent and recognized standard at Southern Fulfillment Services, the parent company of Hale Groves. Last month the company r eceived an award marking them a certified center of excellence by B enchmark Portal, a best practices evaluator for contact centers around the world. H eadquartered in Vero Beach since 2006, Southern Fulfillment Services is a direct-to-consumer fulfillment company specializing in wholesale and private label services for companies selling perishable and non-perishable products, a press release said. In the case of Hale Groves, Southern Fulfillment Services has an inhouse call center where customers can call and be walked through the process of buying a the gift of Florida sunshine, aka. Florida citrus, for family and friends around the country, said Mike Lore, call center manager. The certification, which is evaluated annually, compared Southern Fulfillment Services to thousands of other North American contact centers, measuring efficiency and effectiveness in key performance indicators, such as customer satisfaction, speed to answer, talk time and abandon rate, Mr. Lore said. The achievement of the center of excellence certification is clearly the culmination of initiatives undertaken to achieve sustainable service excellence and customer loyalty, Mr. Lore said. The companys 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee is another way Southern Fulfillment Ser vice sets high standards and goals for themselves. I f someone gets fruit and theyre not 100 percent happy with it, we have agents that work with them to see what will make it right, whether its to replace the order, refund it, or order something else. We want them to be 100 percent satisfied and we want them to come back to us year after year, Mr. Lore said. In the past eight years the company has fulfilled and shipped more than 10 million packages to hundreds of thousands of customers. Dur ing the height of citrus season, there can be as many as 150 customer care agents on the floor taking orders all day long, Mr. Lore said. Fr om October 2013 to January 2014, customer care agents took 200,000 phone calls and 18,000 email inquiries, he said. D enise Dodd, Joan Morrissey and Arlene Isbell are just three of the agents that have been taking calls for more than a dozen seasons, even before Southern Fulfillment Services took over Hale Groves. H ale Groves has been in business since 1947 with many loyal customers and we want to be loyal to them, Mr. Lore said. H aving experienced customer care agents that really know the product is definitely a boon for the company and is an element that sets their company apart from others, he said. R eceiving recognition for their excellent service is wonderful, but that doesnt mean the team will be r esting on their laurels. J ust because we received this award doesnt mean we dont need to improve, but it means we are definitely on the right track and we will keep on going that way, Mr. Lore said. In addition to Hale Groves, Southern Fulfillment Services also owns Pittman and Davis, Nelson FamilyBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com Arlene Isbell has been a customer c are agent with Southern Fulfilment Serivces, the parent company of Hale Groves, since the company started in 2 006.

T rent V ause Y ocumP ageantF rom page 2perform the backup or what needs to be included in the backup that the equally important subject of how to r estore the backup gets neglected. Then, when disaster does strike and people have to go restore from backup the recovery steps that they are following (if any) often dont work. A lot of the backup software thats out there makes assumptions about the backup/recovery situation that dont necessarily fit your situation. Then the steps dont make any sense and youre left feeling lost. He re s a for instance; one backup utility that I know of makes the assumption that the computer itself is intact but the data itself became lost or corrupt. Then, the recovery steps make suggestions like double click the r estore icon on your desktop which makes no sense if you are restoring after a hard drive crash or replacing a computer. Another example involves ghosting or imaging software. This backup concept is that if you regularly image (or ghost) your machine, then r ecovering from hard drive disaster is a snap just re-image a new hard drive and all of your data and settings is r estored exactly as they were right before disaster struck. Usually trying to r estore backup data from an image disk only works if the computer that is being re-imaged has exactly the same hardware as the machine that is being r eplaced. If you can get the image to load at all (on different hardware) you usually end up with a ton of driver issues and other things that have to be cleaned up. I had one frustrated computer user ask me recently what good is having the backup running every night if it still costs time and money to have someone come out to restore it? W ithout a backup running regularly, when you do have a disaster (whether its a hard drive crash or some other catastrophic failure) then switching to a new machine is easy if starting with no data is ok with you! B ut what if you would like your new machine to have all your stuff in it? W ouldnt it be nice if your new machine (or hard drive) had all of your documents in youre My Documents folder? And all those programs that we re installed on the old machine? W ouldnt it be nice to have all of those back? W ell, all that stuff has to be restored and the new machine tweaked until it matches the way you had it as close as possible. Programs that were in use on the old machine have to be reinstalled on the new you cant just r estore it from backup, it has to be r einstalled. Favorites and email all have to be imported manually and applications that may not be on the new box have to be installed. T ake accounting data as a for instance backing up the data is one thing but people are often surprised to learn that they need to reload the accounting software on the new machine if they want to be able to r estore that accounting data. Chores like reinstalling software and importing the data from backup can take a lot longer than it takes to set up a regular nightly backup but what it all comes down to is this its better to be struggling with restoring your data then to be wishing you had something to struggle with! So backup your data anyways!

who wrote about the Planned Parenthood clinics. The ones who go there for various reasons simply dont put value into their souls or bodies. Some females use kids to get into the welfare system simply because they fail to get a basic education. So they just rather have a few kids to get into the welfare trap. In Fo rt Pierce the poverty level is extremely high, and those individuals want others to support them. They have to create a new life to create an income. Sad isnt it? So the next time you see someone protesting in front of a clinic, pull over and tell them to break out their check book and pay for these peoples wellbeing. Yes the earth is over-populated and famine will come. As far as Fo rt Pierce goes, what large business wants to open here with a lack of educated job market? About votingTo listen to the squeals of anguish, y ou would believe that a voter ID r equirement is a major violation of the rights of every citizen. The facts are that an increasing number of states, attempting to assure that every vote is a valid one, are adopting such laws. Can anyone truthfully claim that we want to permit illegal voting? Several years ago, the presidency was decided here in Florida by just a handful of votes. How can we so easily forget?

B uilding youth interest in rowing was always in the plans of the rowing club, but the amount of interest has surprised and thrilled club members, said Shotsi Lajoie. S he came to us and it is really exciting, Ms. Lajoie said. W e formed the high school girls team in December, put them in the water in January and now we have a waiting list of girls who want to get involved, she said. N one of the girls on the team have had prior experience with rowing, but they have shown marked improvement since they have started, said Phil Gravinese, the team coach. W e started with baby steps and we now have them rowing eight and at the end of the month we will have our first r ace, he said. The girls will row 1,500 meters in a typical race. The Indian River Rowing Club has maps of Indian River Lagoon and various distances marked out on the water for club members to practice with, said Chris Ryan, club board member. While the girls were all eager and interested in the crew team from the start, they werent quite sure what they we re getting into at first, Ruby said. I t was much different than I expected. Its really a full-body workout and yo u re sore all over, she said. A t first it would be nerve wracking on the water, learning to balance, keep steady and not fall in, but the great thing is, anyone can row if they put in the time and the effort, Ruby said. One aspect of rowing that is especially attractive to the older girls is the opportunity for college scholarships. I t s a top scholarship-giving sport for girls, Ruby said. The team has gotten to meet some college teams that have visited Vero B each this past winter, and it only made them more excited and determined to excel in their sport. C ali Gumpel, 17, said working with the other girls on the boat truly takes a lot of effort, communication and practice. This is a very team-oriented sport. We need unity, Cali said. While the team enjoys their time on the water and the camaraderie built while they work together, there is one downside. B eing located next to the sewer treatment plant can get quite stinky, and more than that, can make breathing very uncomfortable at times, Ruby said. Dur ing a recent Vero Beach City Co uncil meeting, Ruby and other members of the team asked the members to find some space for them to use along the waters edge in M acWilliams Park, but the council ultimately decided to designate the area as a dog park. Mr. Ryan said he feels the council was short-sighted in their decision. I t s a shame they couldnt make an allowance for the girls to row. I do have some worries about their safety. The water over there is much calmer, he said. The next step for the girls team and the Indian River Rowing Club is to grow their club and fundraise to purchase more boats so more people can get involved in the sport, Mr. Ryan said. U sed boats, or shells, can cost about $25,000, while new shells can be about $35,000, he said. The Indian River Rowing Club has flourished in Fellsmere with access to the C-54 canal and a boathouse for the equipment, but now that Vero Beach has had a taste of the rowing experience, its time to grow the sport over here, Mr. Ryan said.

U nited Way volunteers officially thanked its campaign volunteers and donors with a celebration at Ve ro Beach Country Club on Tuesday. Christie Loftus, United Way Board chairwoman, opened the evenings r emarks with nods to the event sponsor, HealthFirst Health Plans, and the organizations board of directors. Two young men, recognized as Andrew and James, shared their stories of homelessness as teens and how United Way funded programs helped move them into housing, school attendance, and jobs. I look out at you all and dont recognize your faces but youve given me more than my biological family, said James, with heartfelt thanks. C ampaign Co-Chairs Chad Morrison and Gerry Thistle shared the following highlights of the massive fundraising effort. Elite Campaign Sponsors underwrote expenses keeping United Way costs at a minimum. A Campaign C abinet was recruited to solicit donations in the areas of Business and Professionals, Residential, and M ajor Accounts, and 17 companies became Torchbearers, promising early results with a minimum gift of $12,000. Loaned Executives were r ecruited and given time off from local businesses to solicit more than 120 workplaces for corporate and employee support. Fo rty -four new Leadership Investment Society donors, added to those individuals giving $1,000 or more. Tw elve new Alexis de Tocqueville S ociety contributors, (those giving $10,000 or more), helped make up the $850,000 brought in by that group. The Johns Island community r an the largest residential campaign contributing $650,000. The Windsor and Indian River Club communities increased giving significantly. E ight businesses and agencies stepped up to run new, workplace campaigns. Publix Supermarkets giving was up over 14 percent or $53,000 over last year. Piper Aircraft expanded their best practice campaign for a 35 percent increase over last year. Enterprise Leasing, F ellsmere Farms, SunUp ARC and CASTLE ran notably successful campaigns, and Brown & Brown Insurance ran their Thats How We Roll Bo wl-a-thon for the third year of successful fundraising. A direct mail campaign which includes professionals, individuals and businesses collectively contributed $97,000. Gifts were handed out to the volunteers preparing the many thousands of pieces of mail that flowed out of the United Way office during campaign. M uch to be thankful for and many people to be grateful to, said Gerry Thistle, campaign co-chair. Un ited Way CEO Michael Kint got to the heart of the work as he spoke to campaigners. I want to say my o wn thanks to you, and let you know how important this campaign really is. Because of you pregnant moms and families with young children are r eceiving healthcare, education and support; preschool children are getting quality care and learning; elementary students are receiving safe, effective, afterschool care and mentoring; teens are being inspired to community service, educational goals, and healthy growth and development; families are being supported with food, shelter and healthcare; Those living with substance abuse and domestic violence can get help; and the list goes on. He r ecognized partner nonprofit agencies that actually carry out the direct services to people in need of help. The campaign co-chairs for the 2014-15 Campaign, Mike and Leslie S wan, were introduced. United Way is already working through the process of deciding how to distribute the funds. One hundred community volunteers will study human service programs and make recommendations for funding. The United Way B oard of Directors will make a final decision on 2014-2015 funding in Ma y. S oon after that, work for next y ears campaign begins.

With everybody getting his or her yard ready for spring, the one thing everybody wants is color. C olor is one of the main elements that make your yard stand out. One of the most practical ways is through the use of roses. Roses are beautiful flowers that symbolize love and friendship. Imagine y ourself entertaining your friends in a lovely alcove surrounded by colorful flowers. Roses are relatively easy to grow and are a great choice because they will often grow where other flowers wont because of Floridas intense summer sun. You can buy roses as either a container plant or as bare rootstock. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in welldrained soil in a sunny location. If you plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and eighteen inches deep. Put a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the r oot system. The same would apply if y ou plant your roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your roses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. Now, its finally time to plant your prize. Car efully remove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in y our prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. Now, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. You are now r eady to water in your newly planted r ose. O k, you finally have your roses planted and they are bursting with color, now you need to do some periodic maintenance to maintain that beauty. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if you prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get r id of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex reigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases but also controls insect infestation as well. If you are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda? Thats right, baking soda. Plain ordinary baking soda added at the rate of 3 teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure but will not work w ell if an infection is present. Be sure not to make your mix too strong as damage to your roses could result. W ith all the remedies that we have at our disposal for controlling rose problems, probably the best way is prevention. One way is to avoid watering late in the day so the leaves of the plant do not stay wet all night. Also it is important to have good soil drainage. R oses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. Roses should be fed at least once a month. You can use a good quality commercial food or you can use your own mix, which should consist of 1 cup of bone meal, 1-cup cottonseed meal, one-half cup blood meal, one-half cup fishmeal and onehalf cup Epsom salts. You can spread this mix around each plant and then water in. N ext week Ill describe propagating r oses from cuttings and the care and planting of hibiscus.

Envirothon is an outdoor competition designed to encourage student interest in natural resource conservation and environmental management. It is a field-oriented program in which students, working in teams of five, learn to use critical thinking and communications skills, work as a team and develop their problem-solving abilities to answer written and oral questions and conduct hands-on investigations in five study areas: aquatic ecology, forestry, soils and land use, wildlife, and a curr ent environmental issue. The IRL competition adds one additional subject area: ecology of the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, one of the most bio diverse estuaries in the continental U nited States. The Envirothon concept was created by the Pennsylvania Association of C onservation Districts in 1979 as the "Environmental Olympics." This unique hands-on, outdoor environmental program quickly gained popularity among school districts and eventually spread to other states. Envirothons are structured around r egional and statewide competitions. The Indian River Lagoon Envirothon is held each year in March and includes both middle and high school teams. The winning high school teams from each of the counties participating in the I ndian River Lagoon Envirothon (Breva rd Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and O keechobee) may then compete in the statewide Florida Envirothon, held in Apr il. Winning teams from state competitions then go on to compete in the annual Canon Envirothon, held in July.

Ballet seeks to thrill audience in debut performanceVERO BEACH Creating a ballet company from scratch can not only be difficult, but present many hurdles. Those hurdles have been flown over with grace and poise, as Ballet Vero B each readies to give audiences a taste of what the fledgling company has to offer. This is our official reveal, said Adam Schnell, the CEO and artistic director of B allet Vero Beach. We have partnered with Ballet Nebraska and contracted with their dancers, so they are our dancers now, too. I ncluded in the premier performance will be dancers from the Los Angeles D ance Company. The dancers will perform their art during three performances in April at the Vero Beach High School Performing Arts Center. The performing arts center is such a giant space, Mr. Schnell said. I also like that you can get above the stage and being able to see the whole stage picture, so that when youre sitting dead on, you cant tell what the patterns are. So it gives you every angle you like. Mr. Shnell has seen his dream become a reality and he has been deep in the thick of every logistic to get the premiere up and running. The premier will feature classical and neo-classical choreography. Samuel Kur kjian's sparkling masterwork "Chopin Variations" will be featured alongside work by the father of Imperial B allet, Marius Petipa, and company and world premiers by Mr. Schnell. C amilo A. Rodriguez, Ballet Vero B eachs Ballet Master, will return to the stage in a self-choreographed solo, The S wan. The combination of ballet styles will appeal to every member of the audience. I t is not necessarily one full piece work, it is a mixed repertoire, Mr. Schnell said. I want to have people see a broader spectrum of what we can offer. He compared it to the costumes, that there will be those in tutus, costumes and some dancers in pants and shirts for the more modern dance.

It stands to reason that crews descend on the park and begin cleaning, performing maintenance and more. Ha ve you ever thought about what happens when the sun sets during a professional golf tournament? When the sun sets on a golf course it is usually a time of peace and tranquility. The only sounds one may hear are the crickets chirping or the occasional animal taking an evening stroll. This, however, is hardly the case when darkness falls on a course hosting a PGA Tour event. I had never really thought about what goes on when the crowds and golfers head for the restaurants, night clubs, and beds for the night. A couple of w eeks ago I finally had the chance to see for myself just how crazy it gets and I was astounded by the amount of activity. While my day, along with that of the caddies and players, was done, work for the course staff was just beginning. Fr om my vantage point, near the clubhouse with a cold drink in one hand and a cigar in the other, I witnessed a small army taking to the course to prepare it for the next days play. The darkness was filled with the sounds of carts, mowers and a plethora of other equipment rolling into action. The first group called into action attacked the practice tee. Ropes and signage was moved back a few yards away from the scars of a days worth of golfers hitting balls and warming up. The loose grass was picked up and all the divots were expertly filled with sand so that the healing process could begin. In a tent next to the range, volunteers sorted through the practice balls separating out different brands and models. Once separated, the balls were placed in green canvas bags ready for the pros to use the next day. On the greens, maintenance personnel were checking for and repairing ball and spike marks. Mowers were rolling and cutting the greens making them nearly perfect. To my pleasure, the r ough was left alone. Left to grow and thicken to test the best players in the world. Earlier in the afternoon I watched a gentleman stab the greens with what appeared to be a tined prod. The device told him how much moisture was in the areas that he prodded. To get the greens to Tour speeds, the staff must stress the grass to a near-dying state. Without proper care greens could quickly become browns and the Tour would not be happy. Now I was witnessing the crew that had received the report from those earlier readings. These guys were watering only those areas that needed moisture. They hit the dry spots on the green with a gentle spray from a fire hose. Their job was to keep the entire putting surface at the same condition and perfect for play all week long. Once they completed a green, they loaded up their cart and moved on to the next. S till more crews were driving the fairways in carts filled with tools and divot mix. They stopped at every divot they found, expertly repairing it and applying just the right amount of mixture to fill the divot and make it level with the grass around it. After a quick misting of water it was on to the next. There were maintenance personnel working on the bunkers. They made certain all loose impediments were r emoved. Then they raked the sand completing an impeccable job. The lights from the maintenance carts filled the fairways and paths, looking like a swarm of lightning bugs dancing in the starry night. Crews picked up trash bags and put out new ones. On their way to the next stop they would police each area, looking for any stray piece of trash that may have missed the proper receptacle. Even the port-a-potties were emptied, cleaned and freshened. The entire performance took several hours and it was very late before the crews went home for a short rest. H aving taken those few hours off to sleep and to allow the residents some quiet, the staff was back at work just before sunrise. The greens and fairways were cut and r olled again to remove any dew. The tee markers and pins were set for the day. Electronic scoreboards located throughout the course were checked to make sure that their connections were dry and working. The vehicles needed for the day were gassed or checked for a full charge and readied for another long days work. As the sun peaked over the horizon, the volunteers and staff descended upon the course just ahead of the players, caddies and officials. Just in time for another day of perfect conditions, perfect weather and perfect play.

While they may have participated in other sports in the past, 13 girls from Vero Beach H igh School, Master's Academy and Gifford Middle School, have banded together to learn the sport of rowing with help from the local nonprofit Indian River Rowing Club. Ru by H ollinger, 16, team coxswain, said learning to row is exciting, fun and a lot of hard work. "I used to run cross-country, but I sprained my ankle and couldn't do it anymore," Ruby said. In looking for a spring sport to play, she learned that other schools in the area, including S ebastian River High School and Saint Edward's School had ro wing programs, but Vero B each High School had none. How ever, she found out that the Indian River Rowing Club had secured a meeting place alongside the Youth Sailing F oundation on the south sideFirefighters fair delivers lots of funINDIAN RIVER COUNTY M osquitos are pesky insects that can drive some Indian River County resident's crazy, but their very presence, and the presence of an entomology laboratory, has drawn attention from all over North America and other parts of the world.

SEBASTIAN Thousands of little y ellow rubber duckies will be splishing and splashing in the lagoon next month as part of a fundraiser for Treasure Coast Community Health. The Treasure Coast Community H ealth Foundation, the fundraising arm of the nonprofit community health center, will present the second annual "G r eat Duck Derby" on April 6 from noon to 4 p.m. at Captain Hiram's facilities in Sebastian. I ndividual duck "adoptions" are $5 each, and package adoption rates are available, said Colette Heid, spokeswoman for Treasure Coast Community H ealth. One hundred percent of the profits from the event will go toward funding the various programs by Treasure Coast C ommunity Health, including pediatrics, family practice, gynecology, psychiatry, dentistry and behavioral health, she said. D epending on how many ducks are adopted, there could be anywhere from 5,000 to 7,500 bobbing toys dropped into the lagoon during the event. Paddleboarders and wakeboarders will be in the water around them creating waves and pushing the ducks toward the shoreline at Captain Hiram's, Ms. H eid said. The ducks will go into the water about 2 p.m. and it takes about 30 minutes for them to get to shore," she said. On the Great Duck Derby website, adoption packages are listed in full and include everything from a couple of D uck Pals for $10 to a Golden Flock of 55 ducks for $200. Du r ing the family-friendly event, participants will be treated to live music, provided by Captain Hiram's, face painting and craft opportunities for the children, as well as "waddle" r aces, Ms. Heid said. Tr easure Coast Community Health is a federally-qualified community health center dedicated to meeting the medical, dental and mental health needs of non-insured and under-insured members of the community. This is accomplished by providing accessible, costeffective, high quality, comprehensive health care to residents regardless of socio-economic circumstances, a press r elease said. The nonprofit has four locations in I ndian River County. The main medical and dental office location in the north part of the county is at 12196 County R oad 512 in Fellsmere. There is also a medical office in downtown Fellsmere at 44 North Pine Street. M edical and behavioral health offices are located at 1555 U.S. 1 in Vero B each, inside the K-Mart Plaza. In the southern part of the county, patients can visit the medical and dental offices at 1545 Oslo Road in Vero B each. Office hours vary by location and day.

ov er books, stereoscopes and microscopes in their classroom, The B oathouse, reading about physical characteristics of the insects and comparing them to the examples on their microscope slides. J ess Rowland, a University of Florida graduate student, is pursuing an interdisciplinary degree that involves solving complex health issues by studying human, animal, ecological and envir onmental health issues. "M y focus is vector-borne diseases, so this is a different way to look at health issues for me," Ms. Rowland said. The advanced mosquito identification course teaches students to visually identify more than 150 species of mosquito in both the adult and aquatic stages, Professor Connelly said. The course is tough and students must pass four exams before receiving their certification. Many of the students have different reasons to pursue the certification, but one thing is constant, they want to learn, Professor C onnelly said. "I n 14 years we've only had two fails. O ur goal here is that everyone learns the material before they leave," she said. The course is accredited by the University of Florida and is apparently the only mosquito identification course offered in the world, Professor Connelly said. "I ask the students from overseas why they chose to come here and I was surprised to know they didn't have anything like this in their home country," Professor Connelly said. In this year's course, students included U.S. Navy medical entomologists, members of mosquito control boards in Florida and Oregon, physicians, field biologists and university professors. T om Chapman a social biologist and professor of entomology at Memorial U niversity of Newfoundland, enjoyed having a reason to get away from the white winter weather and build his knowledge base. He was asked by a veterinarian in N ew Foundland to learn more about the insects as not many people in their home have background in mosquitos specifically. H is associate, Kate Bassett, also took the course this month. "I 'm used to identifying mosquitos by their DNA, but this will help me identify them by sight," she said. Pr ofessor Connelly was assisted in teaching the class by retired entomologist George O'Meara. Pr ofessor Connelly holds her doctorate degree in philosophy from Louisiana State University and has majored in entomology in all of her degrees. She has been working at the laboratory in Vero Beach since 2006. The Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory is located at 200 Ninth St. S.E., Vero Beach.

Ca r eersource Research Coast, formerly Wo r kforce Solutions, has arranged for a mobile career center to be stationed in the Gifford community every Wednesday. The mobile career center is parked at the Gifford Youth Activity Center on 43rd Av enue from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and has averaged six people per day since opening on Feb. 19, said Odaly Victorio, spokeswoman for CareerSource. H elene Caseltine, director of economic development for the chamber, said it makes sense to bring resources closer to the people that need them, and this is definitely true of job seekers. "H aving a second CareerSource mobile unit in Gifford makes it easier for those in the Gifford community and nearby neighborhoods who are looking for a job, and for those who might want to upgrade their skills for a better job, to access the r esources available on the mobile unit," Ms. Caseltine said. Last summer during chamber workshops, residents of Gifford said one of their areas of need was in finding jobs, so this new unit location is following up on that voiced desire, she said. "G ifford has an extremely high rate of unemployment compared to other parts of Indian River County and the region, plus many jobseekers don't have transportation, so having a central location such as the Gifford Youth Activities Center brings the resources to them," Ms. C aseltine said. It is recommended that clients visit the mobile unit as if they were going to an interview, but other than that, all that is r equired to start the steps toward finding a job is that personal visit, Ms. Victorio said. Ca r eerSource is not the unemployment office; rather, they are a nonprofit organization that provides programs, services and resources to help job seekers find their own employment at no cost, she said. F or example, the mobile unit is equipped with computers and Internet access and staffed with people knowledgeable about websites that may have job listings. Priority placement services are provided to veterans. Staff can also help with career planning and skills and aptitude assessments, according to the organization's website.By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com Cliff Partlow /staff photographerKate Bassett, whose working on her Masters degree and Tom Chapman a professor, both from the Memorial University of Newfoundland examine mosquito larvae for identification.CourseF rom page 1 See BU S, page 5

Daylight Savings TimeI read something about Ben Fr anklin's association with the concept of "Daylight Saving Time." The story I have often heard is that he did indeed introduce the idea to Congress of establishing such a policy. How ever, the members of Congress at the time immediately realized it was a joke the wily Franklin was attempting to play on them. They knew then that no matter what laws are passed there will be the same amount of daylight as usual. They had a higher degree of intelligence than our current representatives and obviously a more refined sense of humor (which often is associated with a higher I.Q.). Perhaps they acknowledged that a higher power would determine what time the sun would rise and set and did not bow to laws passed by Congress or other manmade entities? It is time to get r id of this useless practice. Leave the time where it is now set from now on.A word of thanksI was in a car accident on Thursday night. I want to rave about all the angels that came and helped us. My son immediately got out of the car and a woman named Amie helped him and gave him a phone to use. A y oung woman helped me to get out of the car and lay down until the paramedics arrived. An angel named Stephanie held me and tried to keep me calm. Neighbors and people were everywhere helping and just staying with me. I still am not sure what exactly happened but I wanted to thank all of the wonderful people who were there M ike, a neighbor brought a blanket to warm me, Stephanie; she was wonderful to me, Amie and David for staying with Tony. I am sorry those are all the names I remember. I know there were many more people there. We are so blessed to have the amazing emergency techs, firefighters and the patrol that we do. I am sorry I am not sure if it was IRC Sheriff or FHP, but thank you. We are okay and I pray that the person in the other car is as w ell. Thank you very much one and all.F ood stamp program doesn't help those who need itI wanted to bring my comments to y ou on the real need for food stamp program restructuring. I am married with three children, and lost my job back in February of 2008. We had little funds available for basic living. My wife works part-time and makes just enough for gas and a few groceries. I applied for emergency food stamps from the Department of Children and Families and was denied because our household earned more than $100 a month. I was set back by this action and could not understand why I could not receive some sort of help. I had many conversations with that department with little to no help at all. Since the time that I applied, I have recently been employed fulltime, but with half the wages that I was making before, so we had to relocate to a lesser than adequate home with the bills still being more than we bring in. I have worked my whole life and have served in the Navy for this great country of ours and have always helped the needy when we could. I think that the system should be able to help us in our time of need. The only conclusion that I can come up with is that we would be better just to be jobless; that way we could receive all the benefits the system offers. I know that this is not what should be, but you would think that you could get some sort of assistance just to see you through the short hard time. We have had a little help from our church and thank God every day for the blessings in our life. I just wonder if there are any other families that have similar circumstances. There should be someone out there that sees what is going on and should look into this problem.In responseThis is a response to the person Got something to say?

Pr o viding high-quality customer care is a consistent and recognized standard at Southern Fulfillment Services, the parent company of Hale Groves. Last month the company r eceived an award marking them a certified center of excellence by B enchmark Portal, a best practices evaluator for contact centers around the world. H eadquartered in Vero Beach since 2006, Southern Fulfillment Services is a direct-to-consumer fulfillment company specializing in wholesale and private label services for companies selling perishable and non-perishable products, a press release said. In the case of Hale Groves, Southern Fulfillment Services has an inhouse call center where customers can call and be walked through the process of buying a the gift of Florida sunshine, aka. Florida citrus, for family and friends around the country, said Mike Lore, call center manager. The certification, which is evaluated annually, compared Southern Fulfillment Services to thousands of other North American contact centers, measuring efficiency and effectiveness in key performance indicators, such as customer satisfaction, speed to answer, talk time and abandon rate, Mr. Lore said. The achievement of the center of excellence certification is clearly the culmination of initiatives undertaken to achieve sustainable service excellence and customer loyalty," Mr. Lore said. The company's 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee is another way Southern Fulfillment Se r vice sets high standards and goals for themselves. "I f someone gets fruit and they're not 100 percent happy with it, we have agents that work with them to see what will make it right, whether it's to replace the order, refund it, or order something else. We want them to be 100 percent satisfied and we want them to come back to us year after year," Mr. Lore said. In the past eight years the company has fulfilled and shipped more than 10 million packages to hundreds of thousands of customers. Du r ing the height of citrus season, there can be as many as 150 customer care agents on the floor taking orders all day long, Mr. Lore said. Fr om October 2013 to January 2014, customer care agents took 200,000 phone calls and 18,000 email inquiries, he said. D enise Dodd, Joan Morrissey and Arlene Isbell are just three of the agents that have been taking calls for more than a dozen seasons, even before Southern Fulfillment Services took over Hale Groves. "H ale Groves has been in business since 1947 with many loyal customers and we want to be loyal to them," Mr. Lore said. H aving experienced customer care agents that really know the product is definitely a boon for the company and is an element that sets their company apart from others, he said. R eceiving recognition for their excellent service is wonderful, but that doesn't mean the team will be r esting on their laurels. "J ust because we received this award doesn't mean we don't need to improve, but it means we are definitely on the right track and we will keep on going that way," Mr. Lore said. In addition to Hale Groves, Southern Fulfillment Services also owns Pittman and Davis, Nelson FamilyBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com Arlene Isbell has been a customer c are agent with Southern Fulfilment Serivces, the parent company of Hale Groves, since the company started in 2 006.

T rent V ause Y ocumP ageantF rom page 2perform the backup or what needs to be included in the backup that the equally important subject of how to r estore the backup gets neglected. Then, when disaster does strike and people have to go restore from backup the recovery steps that they are following (if any) often don't work. A lot of the backup software that's out there makes assumptions about the backup/recovery situation that don't necessarily fit your situation. Then the steps don't make any sense and you're left feeling lost. He re 's a for instance; one backup utility that I know of makes the assumption that the computer itself is intact but the data itself became lost or corrupt. Then, the recovery steps make suggestions like "double click the r estore icon on your desktop" which makes no sense if you are restoring after a hard drive crash or replacing a computer. Another example involves "ghosting" or "imaging" software. This backup concept is that if you regularly image (or ghost) your machine, then r ecovering from hard drive disaster is a snap just re-image a new hard drive and all of your data and settings is r estored exactly as they were right before disaster struck. Usually trying to r estore backup data from an image disk only works if the computer that is being re-imaged has exactly the same hardware as the machine that is being r eplaced. If you can get the image to load at all (on different hardware) you usually end up with a ton of driver issues and other things that have to be cleaned up. I had one frustrated computer user ask me recently "what good is having the backup running every night if it still costs time and money to have someone come out to restore it?" W ithout a backup running regularly, when you do have a disaster (whether it's a hard drive crash or some other catastrophic failure) then switching to a new machine is easy if starting with no data is ok with you! B ut what if you would like your new machine to have all your "stuff" in it? W ouldn't it be nice if your new machine (or hard drive) had all of your documents in you're My Documents folder? And all those programs that we re installed on the old machine? W ouldn't it be nice to have all of those back? W ell, all that stuff has to be restored and the new machine "tweaked" until it matches the way you had it as close as possible. Programs that were in use on the old machine have to be reinstalled on the new you can't just r estore it from backup, it has to be r einstalled. Favorites and email all have to be imported manually and applications that may not be on the new box have to be installed. T ake accounting data as a for instance backing up the data is one thing but people are often surprised to learn that they need to reload the accounting software on the new machine if they want to be able to r estore that accounting data. Chores like reinstalling software and importing the data from backup can take a lot longer than it takes to set up a regular nightly backup but what it all comes down to is this it's better to be struggling with restoring your data then to be wishing you had something to struggle with! So backup your data anyways!

who wrote about the Planned Parenthood clinics. The ones who go there for various reasons simply don't put value into their souls or bodies. Some females use kids to get into the welfare system simply because they fail to get a basic education. So they just rather have a few kids to get into the welfare trap. In Fo rt Pierce the poverty level is extremely high, and those individuals want others to support them. They have to create a new life to create an income. Sad isn't it? So the next time you see someone protesting in front of a clinic, pull over and tell them to break out their check book and pay for these peoples wellbeing. Yes the earth is over-populated and famine will come. As far as Fo rt Pierce goes, what large business wants to open here with a lack of educated job market? About votingTo listen to the squeals of anguish, y ou would believe that a voter ID r equirement is a major violation of the rights of every citizen. The facts are that an increasing number of states, attempting to assure that every vote is a valid one, are adopting such laws. Can anyone truthfully claim that we want to permit illegal voting? Several years ago, the presidency was decided here in Florida by just a handful of votes. Ho w can we so easily forget?

B uilding youth interest in rowing was always in the plans of the rowing club, but the amount of interest has surprised and thrilled club members, said Shotsi Lajoie. "S he came to us and it is really exciting," Ms. Lajoie said. "W e formed the high school girls team in December, put them in the water in January and now we have a waiting list of girls who want to get involved," she said. N one of the girls on the team have had prior experience with rowing, but they have shown marked improvement since they have started, said Phil Gravinese, the team coach. "W e started with baby steps and we now have them rowing eight and at the end of the month we will have our first r ace," he said. The girls will row 1,500 meters in a typical race. The Indian River Rowing Club has maps of Indian River Lagoon and various distances marked out on the water for club members to practice with, said Chris Ryan, club board member. While the girls were all eager and interested in the crew team from the start, they weren't quite sure what they we re getting into at first, Ruby said. "I t was much different than I expected. It's really a full-body workout and yo u' re sore all over," she said. "A t first it would be nerve wracking on the water, learning to balance, keep steady and not fall in, but the great thing is, anyone can row if they put in the time and the effort," Ruby said. One aspect of rowing that is especially attractive to the older girls is the opportunity for college scholarships. "I t' s a top scholarship-giving sport for girls," Ruby said. The team has gotten to meet some college teams that have visited Vero B each this past winter, and it only made them more excited and determined to excel in their sport. C ali Gumpel, 17, said working with the other girls on the boat truly takes a lot of effort, communication and practice. This is a very team-oriented sport. We need unity," Cali said. While the team enjoys their time on the water and the camaraderie built while they work together, there is one downside. B eing located next to the sewer treatment plant can get quite stinky, and more than that, can make breathing very uncomfortable at times, Ruby said. Du r ing a recent Vero Beach City Co uncil meeting, Ruby and other members of the team asked the members to find some space for them to use along the water's edge in M acWilliams Park, but the council ultimately decided to designate the area as a dog park. Mr. Ryan said he feels the council was short-sighted in their decision. "I t' s a shame they couldn't make an allowance for the girls to row. I do have some worries about their safety. The water over there is much calmer," he said. The next step for the girls team and the Indian River Rowing Club is to grow their club and fundraise to purchase more boats so more people can get involved in the sport, Mr. Ryan said. U sed boats, or shells, can cost about $25,000, while new shells can be about $35,000, he said. The Indian River Rowing Club has flourished in Fellsmere with access to the C-54 canal and a boathouse for the equipment, but now that Vero Beach has had a taste of the rowing experience, it's time to grow the sport over here, Mr. Ryan said.

U nited Way volunteers officially thanked its campaign volunteers and donors with a celebration at Ve ro B each Country Club on Tuesday. Christie Loftus, United Way Board chairwoman, opened the evening's r emarks with nods to the event sponsor, HealthFirst Health Plans, and the organization's board of directors. Two young men, recognized as Andrew and James, shared their stories of homelessness as teens and how United Way funded programs helped move them into housing, school attendance, and jobs. "I look out at you all and don't recognize your faces but you've given me more than my biological family," said James, with heartfelt thanks. C ampaign Co-Chairs Chad Morrison and Gerry Thistle shared the following highlights of the massive fundraising effort. Elite Campaign Sponsors underwrote expenses keeping United Way costs at a minimum. A Campaign C abinet was recruited to solicit donations in the areas of Business and Professionals, Residential, and M ajor Accounts, and 17 companies became Torchbearers, promising early results with a minimum gift of $12,000. Loaned Executives were r ecruited and given time off from local businesses to solicit more than 120 workplaces for corporate and employee support. Fo rt y -four new Leadership Investment Society donors, added to those individuals giving $1,000 or more. Tw elve new Alexis de Tocqueville S ociety contributors, (those giving $10,000 or more), helped make up the $850,000 brought in by that group. The John's Island community r an the largest residential campaign contributing $650,000. The Windsor and Indian River Club communities increased giving significantly. E ight businesses and agencies stepped up to run new, workplace campaigns. Publix Supermarkets giving was up over 14 percent or $53,000 over last year. Piper Aircraft expanded their best practice campaign for a 35 percent increase over last year. Enterprise Leasing, F ellsmere Farms, SunUp ARC and CASTLE ran notably successful campaigns, and Brown & Brown Insurance ran their "That's How We Roll" Bo wl-a-thon" for the third year of successful fundraising. A direct mail campaign which includes professionals, individuals and businesses collectively contributed $97,000. Gifts were handed out to the volunteers preparing the many thousands of pieces of mail that flowed out of the United Way office during campaign. "M uch to be thankful for and many people to be grateful to," said Gerry Thistle, campaign co-chair. Un ited Way CEO Michael Kint got to the heart of the work as he spoke to campaigners. "I want to say my o wn thanks to you, and let you know how important this campaign really is. Because of you pregnant moms and families with young children are r eceiving healthcare, education and support; preschool children are getting quality care and learning; elementary students are receiving safe, effective, afterschool care and mentoring; teens are being inspired to community service, educational goals, and healthy growth and development; families are being supported with food, shelter and healthcare; Those living with substance abuse and domestic violence can get help; and the list goes on. He r ecognized partner nonprofit agencies that actually carry out the direct services to people in need of help. The campaign co-chairs for the 2014-15 Campaign, Mike and Leslie S wan, were introduced. United Way is already working through the process of deciding how to distribute the funds. One hundred community volunteers will study human service programs and make recommendations for funding. The United Way B oard of Directors will make a final decision on 2014-2015 funding in Ma y. S oon after that, work for next y ear's campaign begins. U nited Way of Indian River County is encouraging people in the community to LIVE UNITED by donating to the annual campaign, helping spread the word about programs and services that help people in need, and volunteering their time and talent to a local cause.

With everybody getting his or her yard ready for spring, the one thing everybody wants is color. C olor is one of the main elements that make your yard stand out. One of the most practical ways is through the use of roses. Roses are beautiful flowers that symbolize love and friendship. Imagine y ourself entertaining your friends in a lovely alcove surrounded by colorful flowers. Roses are relatively easy to grow and are a great choice because they will often grow where other flowers won't because of Florida's intense summer sun. You can buy roses as either a container plant or as bare rootstock. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in welldrained soil in a sunny location. If you plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and eighteen inches deep. Put a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the r oot system. The same would apply if y ou plant your roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your roses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. No w, it's finally time to plant your prize. Ca r efully remove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in y our prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. Now, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. You are now r eady to water in your newly planted r ose. O k, you finally have your roses planted and they are bursting with color, now you need to do some periodic maintenance to maintain that beauty. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if you prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get r id of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex reigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases but also controls insect infestation as well. If you are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda? That's right, baking soda. Plain ordinary baking soda added at the rate of 3 teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure but will not work w ell if an infection is present. Be sure not to make your mix too strong as damage to your roses could result. W ith all the remedies that we have at our disposal for controlling rose problems, probably the best way is prevention. One way is to avoid watering late in the day so the leaves of the plant do not stay wet all night. Also it is important to have good soil drainage. R oses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. Roses should be fed at least once a month. You can use a good quality commercial food or you can use your own mix, which should consist of 1 cup of bone meal, 1-cup cottonseed meal, one-half cup blood meal, one-half cup fishmeal and onehalf cup Epsom salts. You can spread this mix around each plant and then water in. N ext week I'll describe propagating r oses from cuttings and the care and planting of hibiscus.

Envirothon is an outdoor competition designed to encourage student interest in natural resource conservation and environmental management. It is a field-oriented program in which students, working in teams of five, learn to use critical thinking and communications skills, work as a team and develop their problem-solving abilities to answer written and oral questions and conduct hands-on investigations in five study areas: aquatic ecology, forestry, soils and land use, wildlife, and a curr ent environmental issue. The IRL competition adds one additional subject area: ecology of the Indian River Lagoon, Florida, one of the most bio diverse estuaries in the continental U nited States. The Envirothon concept was created by the Pennsylvania Association of C onservation Districts in 1979 as the "Environmental Olympics." This unique hands-on, outdoor environmental program quickly gained popularity among school districts and eventually spread to other states. Envirothons are structured around r egional and statewide competitions. The Indian River Lagoon Envirothon is held each year in March and includes both middle and high school teams. The winning high school teams from each of the counties participating in the I ndian River Lagoon Envirothon (Breva rd Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and O keechobee) may then compete in the statewide Florida Envirothon, held in Ap r il. Winning teams from state competitions then go on to compete in the annual Canon Envirothon, held in July.

Ballet seeks to thrill audience in debut performanceVERO BEACH Creating a ballet company from scratch can not only be difficult, but present many hurdles. Those hurdles have been flown over with grace and poise, as Ballet Vero B each readies to give audiences a taste of what the fledgling company has to offer. This is our official reveal," said Adam Schnell, the CEO and artistic director of B allet Vero Beach. "We have partnered with Ballet Nebraska and contracted with their dancers, so they are our dancers now, too." I ncluded in the premier performance will be dancers from the Los Angeles D ance Company. The dancers will perform their art during three performances in April at the Vero Beach High School Performing Arts Center. The performing arts center is such a giant space," Mr. Schnell said. "I also like that you can get above the stage and being able to see the whole stage picture, so that when you're sitting dead on, you can't tell what the patterns are. So it gives you every angle you like." Mr. Shnell has seen his dream become a reality and he has been deep in the thick of every logistic to get the premiere up and running. The premier will feature classical and neo-classical choreography. Samuel Ku r kjian's sparkling masterwork "Chopin Variations" will be featured alongside work by the father of Imperial B allet, Marius Petipa, and company and world premiers by Mr. Schnell. C amilo A. Rodriguez, Ballet Vero B each's Ballet Master, will return to the stage in a self-choreographed solo, The S wan.' The combination of ballet styles will appeal to every member of the audience. "I t is not necessarily one full piece work, it is a mixed repertoire," Mr. Schnell said. "I want to have people see a broader spectrum of what we can offer." He compared it to the costumes, that there will be those in tutus, costumes and some dancers in pants and shirts for the more modern dance.

It stands to reason that crews descend on the park and begin cleaning, performing maintenance and more. Ha ve you ever thought about what happens when the sun sets during a professional golf tournament? When the sun sets on a golf course it is usually a time of peace and tranquility. The only sounds one may hear are the crickets chirping or the occasional animal taking an evening stroll. This, however, is hardly the case when darkness falls on a course hosting a PGA Tour event. I had never really thought about what goes on when the crowds and golfers head for the restaurants, night clubs, and beds for the night. A couple of w eeks ago I finally had the chance to see for myself just how crazy it gets and I was astounded by the amount of activity. While my day, along with that of the caddies and players, was done, work for the course staff was just beginning. Fr om my vantage point, near the clubhouse with a cold drink in one hand and a cigar in the other, I witnessed a small army taking to the course to prepare it for the next day's play. The darkness was filled with the sounds of carts, mowers and a plethora of other equipment rolling into action. The first group called into action attacked the practice tee. Ropes and signage was moved back a few yards away from the scars of a day's worth of golfers hitting balls and warming up. The loose grass was picked up and all the divots were expertly filled with sand so that the healing process could begin. In a tent next to the range, volunteers sorted through the practice balls separating out different brands and models. Once separated, the balls were placed in green canvas bags ready for the pros to use the next day. On the greens, maintenance personnel were checking for and repairing ball and spike marks. Mowers were rolling and cutting the greens making them nearly perfect. To my pleasure, the r ough was left alone. Left to grow and thicken to test the best players in the world. Earlier in the afternoon I watched a gentleman stab the greens with what appeared to be a tined prod. The device told him how much moisture was in the areas that he prodded. To get the greens to Tour speeds, the staff must stress the grass to a near-dying state. Without proper care "greens" could quickly become "browns" and the Tour would not be happy. No w I was witnessing the crew that had received the report from those earlier readings. These guys were watering only those areas that needed moisture. They hit the dry spots on the green with a gentle spray from a fire hose. Their job was to keep the entire putting surface at the same condition and perfect for play all week long. Once they completed a green, they loaded up their cart and moved on to the next. S till more crews were driving the fairways in carts filled with tools and divot mix. They stopped at every divot they found, expertly repairing it and applying just the right amount of mixture to fill the divot and make it level with the grass around it. After a quick misting of water it was on to the next. There were maintenance personnel working on the bunkers. They made certain all loose impediments were r emoved. Then they raked the sand completing an impeccable job. The lights from the maintenance carts filled the fairways and paths, looking like a swarm of lightning bugs dancing in the starry night. Crews picked up trash bags and put out new ones. On their way to the next stop they would police each area, looking for any stray piece of trash that may have missed the proper receptacle. Even the port-a-potties were emptied, cleaned and freshened. The entire performance took several hours and it was very late before the crews went home for a short rest. H aving taken those few hours off to sleep and to allow the residents some quiet, the staff was back at work just before sunrise. The greens and fairways were cut and r olled again to remove any dew. The tee markers and pins were set for the day. Electronic scoreboards located throughout the course were checked to make sure that their connections were dry and working. The vehicles needed for the day were gassed or checked for a full charge and readied for another long day's work. As the sun peaked over the horizon, the volunteers and staff descended upon the course just ahead of the players, caddies and officials. Just in time for another day of perfect conditions, perfect weather and perfect play.
