en-US 2 en-USINDIAN RIVER en-US COUNTY Each candien-US -en-US date was asked to provide en-US a bio of up to 100 words, en-US and a summary of the en-US biggest issue facing the en-US community that they en-US could address as a County Court Judge. en-US Their answers follow:en-USNicole P. Menz:en-USBio: 49 years old, practicing law in Indian en-US River County for 23 years. My career began en-US as an Assistant State Attorney in Vero Beach en-US in 1995. I served nearly 9 years as a prosecuen-US-en-US tor representing the people of the Florida en-US and Indian River County. I prosecuted en-US thousands of cases from DUI to First Degree en-US Murder. en-US I have spent 14 years in private civil pracen-US -en-US tice with the law firm of Menz & Battista. I en-US have been Board Certified in Criminal Trial en-US Law since 2005.en-US For the last 1-1/2 years, I have presided en-US over traffic court as a Civil Traffic Infracen-US-en-US tion Hearing Officer.en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: One of the biggest issues is the amount en-US of taxpayer dollars spent for cases that are en-US appropriate for diversion. There is a Drug en-US Court Program availen-US -en-US able to individuals en-US charged with felony en-US possession of drugs en-US (cocaine, hydrocoen-US-en-US done) that have no en-US prior record where en-US the evidence indien-US-en-US cates the individual is en-US a user and not a seller. en-US However, there is no en-US such program for en-US someone charged en-US with possession of maren-US -en-US ijuana in County Court under those same en-US circumstances. Diversion programs not en-US only save taxpayer dollars but they also en-US reduce recidivism rates. It is time for diveren-US -en-US sion programs in County Court. I will seek en-US to implement those programs.en-US Contact info for Nicole Menz:en-US Email: en-US nicole@menzforjudge.comen-US Website: en-US www.menzforjudge.comen-USKiernan Patrick Moylan:en-USBio: Practicing law for more than nineen-US -en-US teen years, eleven in public service. For en-US about three years I worked as a Florida en-US Assistant State Attorney General handling en-US constitutional questions at a trial level, en-US defending the State in civil rights and other en-US matters. For seven years I have been an en-US Assistant Public Defender handling all en-US types of criminal matters, particularly for en-US the past five years assigned to all cases of the en-US Office in Indian River County Courts. I en-US started my legal career as in-house counsel en-US in a large Florida en-US company, where I en-US became a Senior Vice en-US President. My wife en-US and I live in Indian en-US River Shores with our en-US three children.en-US Q: What is the bigen-US -en-US gest issue concerning en-US your community en-US right now that you en-US can affect in the office en-US you seek and, if electen-US-en-US ed, how do you plan on en-US solving that issue?en-US A: My goal for my service as a county en-US judge is to carry forward the current sucen-US -en-US cessful system in our Indian River County en-US Court System. I hope to work with Court en-US Administration, Office of the State Attorney en-US and the Office of the Public Defender to en-US create more diversion court opportunities en-US as allowed by the current statutes. I also en-US believe we need to address the driving while en-US license suspended issue currently facing en-US Indian River County and I will work within en-US the bounds of the law to facilitate.en-US Contact info for Kiernan Patrick Moylan:en-US Email: en-US en-US Website: en-US moylanforjudge.comen-US Facebook: moylanforjudgeen-USRobyn Stone:en-USBio: I was born and raised in Vero Beach. en-US I am a third-generation attorney in Indian en-US River County. My father, Robert Stone, has en-US been a lawyer here for fifty years. I graduaten-US -en-US ed from St. Edwards en-US School in 1997, en-US Davidson College in en-US 2001, and the Univeren-US -en-US sity of Tennessee Colen-US-en-US lege of Law in 2006. I en-US work for State Attoren-US -en-US ney Bruce Colton as en-US an Assistant State en-USAttorney. I have prosen-US-en-US ecuted thousands of en-US cases over the last 12 en-US years. Currently, I am en-US a county court supervien-US-en-US sor and I work in our Mental Health Court, en-US Veterans Court, and Drug Court. I live in en-US Vero Beach.en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: According to the National Institute on en-US Drug Abuse, more than 115 people in the en-US United States die every day after overdosing en-US on opioids. I know from my experience as en-US an Assistant State Attorney and a drug court en-US team member that the opioid crisis affects en-US us here in Indian River County. Opioid en-US addition often leads to other crime such as en-US thefts and burglaries. In county court, I en-US would strive to address drug addictions by en-US doing what I could do to identify entry level en-US drug users and connect them with the many en-US services and treatment centers our county en-US has to offer.en-US Contact info for Robyn E.

en-US 3 en-USVERO BEACH Moore Motors of Vero en-US Beach has been selling and servicing outen-US-en-US door power equipment like lawnmowers for en-US 32 years. If, like this writer, youve driven by en-US the U.S. 1 location hundreds of times withen-US -en-US out ever going in, you need to have a look, en-US especially if youre in the market for a lawnen-US -en-US mower.en-US Until I visited with owner Dennis Moore en-US recently, I had no idea how deep and well-en-US stocked the showroom is. Just driving by, en-US you have no idea how huge it is.en-US Were probably the biggest independent en-US dealer on the coast, as far as size and amount en-US of inventory, Mr. Moore told Hometown en-US News. Theres nobody on the Treasure en-US Coast thats got an inventory like this.en-US Before you buy a lawnmower, you need to en-US visit Moore Motors. If you want to go someen-US -en-US place where youre not going to see just a en-US handful of models, this is your place.en-US You can look at a hundred lawnmowers, en-US thats for sure, Mr. Moore said. en-US At any given time theres probably 200 en-US lawnmowers here. And weve got a wareen-US -en-US house in the back thats full. We have lines en-US you wont find at the box stores. We have en-US mowers for everyone from the entry level en-US homeowner all the way up to professionals. en-US Weve got lawnmowers that start at less than en-US $2,000, up to $15,000. Weve got something en-US for everybody. We sell not only to homeen-US -en-US owners, but also landscaping companies. en-US Whatever the application is, we have the en-US tool for the job.en-US And Moore Motors has more than just en-US mowers. As Mr. Moore explained, they have en-US all the equipment you need for maintaining en-US your outdoor property. That includes Stihl en-US chainsaws, blowers, hedge-trimmers and en-US weed-wackers, and anything and everyen-US-en-US thing that involves making tall grass short.en-US Moore Motors only sells top-of-the-line en-US equipment like Cub Cadet, Bobcat, and en-US Hustler. They used to sell John Deere, but en-US dont anymore because that company wanten-US -en-US ed to move the independent dealers to sell en-US only their product. Dennis Moore was a en-US John Deere dealer for 20 years, but he wanten-US-en-US ed to continue selling a full line of other en-US manufacturers.en-US When John Deere left us, it gave us an en-US opportunity to stock more of the other manen-US -en-US ufacturers. For people looking for John en-US Deere, we invite them to compare that to en-US what we have, and they may find a superior en-US product, Mr. Moore said. Cub Cadet is a en-US major player. Bobcat is a major player. Husen-US -en-US tler is a real old company. These manufacen-US -en-US turers dont build disposable equipment. en-US They build premium products that are en-US designed to last and give you more than en-US your moneys worth. We dont sell throwen-US -en-US away products that in five years youll be en-US looking to replace.en-US Moore Motors does still service and en-US maintain John Deere products, as well as en-US almost every other brand.en-US What separates us from en-US the box stores is that we have en-US parts and we have service. If en-US you buy it here, we service it en-US here. You dont have to call en-US an 800 number and get en-US directed to go someplace for en-US service. You bring it back en-US here and we take care of it. en-US Were a one-stop shop.en-US There are very few things en-US that we cant work on. We en-US stock belts and blades and en-US filters for almost every lawnen-US-en-US mower in existence, not just en-US the ones we sell. Because we en-US work on everything, so we en-US have to have the parts.en-US While the new equipment inventory is en-US enormous, service and parts are the mainen-US -en-US stay of Moore Motors.en-US We built this business on service and en-US parts, said Mr. Moore. Theres nothing en-US that we sell here that we cannot provide en-US parts and service for. If you buy a lawnmowen-US -en-US er from a box store and you have a problem en-US with it, you cant take it back there. Theyre en-US going to send you someplace.en-US Everything Ive got here on the floor is en-US made in the U.S. The Bobcats, Cub Cadets, en-US Hustlers are all made right here in the U.S. en-US And we have some of the best warranties in en-US the industry.en-US Were always running good financing en-US specials. We can offer zero percent interest en-US on most lines. We can provide good financen-US -en-US ing programs right here, through the manuen-US-en-US facturers. That gives us a tool to offer an en-US incentive to the customer. If you dont want en-US to reach into your pocket for the money en-US right now, I can offer you 48 months at zero en-US percent. And if youve got a five year waren-US -en-US ranty, the warranty will run a year longer en-US than the payments. That doesnt happen en-US most places.en-US Moore Motors sells mostly new equipen-US en-USment, but they also sell some used, because en-US they take trade-ins. If you have a mower en-US thats still got some life left in it, you can en-US trade it in on a new one, which theyll reconen-US I Believe In Pelican LandingI believe in Pelican Landing because we make a dierence in our residents lives, and being a part of their story is amazing!

He and the republican en-US legislature have refused to implement any en-US controls over pollution discharged into the en-US Lake Okeechobee watershed and have en-US thwarted any attempts to divert water from en-US the lake south instead of east and west.en-US Now he shows up to lament the problem en-US he has had a significant role in causing. He en-US blames Nelson and the Corps of Engineers. en-US I am no big Nelson fan by any means but en-US Scotts abysmal environmental record renen-US -en-US ders his protestations and smearing of Nelen-US-en-US son disingenuous at best. Scott will say en-US whatever he feels will get him elected but as en-US soon as he is in Washington he will conveen-US -en-US niently forget about all of this and our situaen-US -en-US tion will again take a back seat to lobbyists en-US and contributions.en-US Yes, the Corps of Engineers could do a en-US better job. Yes, Nelson has let us down. en-US But Rick Scott has been active in aiding en-US and abetting in the pollution of Lake en-US Okeechobee and our water. Hes pocketed en-US tens of thousands of dollars from the polluten-US-en-US ers and has let them have their way. Dont en-US forget that at the polls.en-USRe: Slow driversen-USI would like to concur with the writer of en-US the rave concerning "Slow Drivers" in the en-US August 3, 2018 issue. I also have driven in en-US several countries and Americans are by far en-US the worst drivers, mostly because they en-US believe they know EVERYTHING when en-US they really don't. en-US For example, my major concern is when I en-US am driving in the right lane and someone en-US goes flying past me in the passing lane and en-US then IMMEDIATELY pulls over into my en-US lane TEN FEET in front of my front en-US bumper! en-US It is a terrifying and constant experience en-US on Florida's Turnpike. I am sure none of en-US these drivers know that in order to pull over en-US safely after passing, you must make sure you en-US can see BOTH of the following vehicles en-US headlights in your rear view mirror (not the en-US side mirror!) before making the move. en-US I wish we could teach drivers the rules of en-US the road and the traffic laws in such a way en-US that they would not resist learning them. en-US We would all be much safer.en-US Thank you very much. I am very en-US impressed with our local Hometown News. en-US I turn to it weekly for excellent coverage of en-US local events and people. Please keep up the en-US good work.en-USPartnership should en-US mean lower taxesen-USRead a recent article on IRMC. The artien-US -en-US cle mentioned that if Cleveland Clinic parten-US-en-US ners up with IRMC, this should reduce tax en-US millage amount. This should mean a lower en-US rate for taxpayers! IRMC are already getting en-US more tax dollars based on higher property en-US values, so a double dip by raising millage en-US amount is a JOKE. NOT an expanse of proen-US -en-US grams which mean more taxpayers' money. en-US Thats the problem with community owned en-US hospitals, they pass things on to taxpayers en-US even if they have poor fiscal management.en-USElectionsen-USI am very grateful to the Hometown News en-US for your articles about candidates running en-US for office. It is a great way to help educate en-US yourselves about who to vote for. We all en-US know the many flyers and advertisements en-US say what they want to do. Whether they en-US actually do that if they have no track record en-US is not guaranteed. And finally, checking out en-US their campaign finance report tells a story in en-US itself about who they may or may not be en-US beholding to. en-US I was dismayed to hear that Martin Counen-US -en-US ty is not allowing for early voting like Palm en-US Beach and other nearby counties. I do not en-US understand why this is not standard in Floren-US -en-US ida. Making it harder for people to get to the en-US polls is not fair to those who may have a en-US hard time getting there the day of the elecen-US-en-US tions. Most importantly, let's all get out and en-US exercise our hard fought for right to vote!en-USService vs. comfort animalsen-USKudos to Publix for educating their cusen-US -en-US tomers on the difference between service en-US animals and comfort animals. en-US They are not one in the same.en-US As a shopper please leave your comfort en-US animals home from storesen-US Hope other stores follow, it's gotten out of en-US control!en-USProud to be a readeren-USAnd I'm glad I finally get my paper like en-US clockwork now on Friday morn.... thank en-US you! en-US The rants & raves this week were right on. en-US I was really impressed with Publix's stateen-US -en-US ment about the service animals. I think all en-USstores should follow suit! I am the first to say en-US I love all animals but too many folks take en-US advantage of the opportunity to drag those en-US poor babies out in the heat and put them en-US thru the humiliation of strangers fussing all en-US over them, etc. The animals are loyal to you, en-US the owners, they would probably be happy en-US waiting at home til you return. Other than en-US dragging them into the stores, or the beach, en-US yard sales ... have a little compassion for en-US your animals. Just because you want them en-US under your wing does not mean it is pleasen-US -en-US ant for the animal!en-USBe more considerateen-USHow come is it that ordinarily considerate en-US folk will go out of their way to throw a wrapen-US-en-US per or napkin or any manner of trash into a en-US garbage pail, yet these same people dont en-US think twice about throwing cigarette butts en-US out a car window or on the beach.en-US How unthinking or inconsiderate does en-US one have to be to think its OK to use the en-US beautiful beaches and roadways as an ashen-US -en-US tray? Doesnt it bother people to see youngen-US -en-US sters playing in the sand with cancer causing en-US cigarette butts around them?

en-US 8 en-USINDIAN RIVER COUNTY A new en-US economic study by the Economic Policy en-US Institute concludes that Indian River Counen-US-en-US ty has the 10th largest income inequality of en-US all counties nationwide. en-US When looked at by the slightly different en-US metropolitan area metric, the results look en-US even more alarming. The Sebastian-Vero en-US Beach metropolitan area had the fourth en-US largest gap in the country between the top 1 en-US percent and the bottom 99 percent.en-US The study found that income inequality en-US in the U.S. is the largest it has been since the en-US 1928 peak that preceded the Great Depresen-US -en-US sion.en-US Most large scale economic studies use en-US data that is several years old in order to en-US guarantee that the data is accurate and comen-US -en-US plete, and this report follows that pattern. en-US This exhaustive study reviewed data en-US through 2015, the last year for which the en-US study authors had comprehensive and relien-US -en-US able information from across the country. It en-US is expected that it will take a few more years en-US before adequate data exists to analyze post-en-US 2015 changes.en-US In other words, the study should not be en-US seen as an analysis of policies or trends from en-US the last few years. Rather, it studies trends en-US from 2009-15.en-US The report, titled The New Gilded Age, en-US finds that income inequality has risen in en-US every state since the 1970s, and has acceleren-US -en-US ated in most states since the Great Recesen-US -en-US sion.en-US From 2009-15, incomes of the top one en-US percent grew faster than the incomes of the en-US bottom 99 percent in 43 states and Washen-US-en-US ington D.C. The top one percent received at en-US least half of all income growth in nine states.en-US Overall, the top one percent in the U.S. en-US received 22.03 percent of all income in 2015. en-US That is only 1.9 percent below the pre-Deen-US -en-US pression peak of 23.9 percent in 1928.en-US Florida was one of only five states where en-US the top one percent had a greater income en-US share than that 1928 benchmark. To be in en-US the top one percent nationally, a family en-US needs an annual income of $421,926.en-US In Florida, the top one percent took home en-US 28.5 percent of all income in 2015, second en-US behind New Yorks 31 percent. The report en-US concluded that this makes Florida and New en-US York the two most unequal states.en-US Thirty metropolitan areas had top one en-US percent shares of income above 23.9 percent en-US in 2015. Shares were highest in Jackson, en-US Wyoming, (57.1 percent); Naples-Immokaen-US -en-US lee-Marco Island, (47.6 percent); Key West, en-US (45.1 percent); and Sebastian-Vero Beach, en-US (40.4 percent). In the Sebastian-Vero Beach en-US metro area, the bottom 99 percent took en-US home 29.4 percent of the income. en-US Seventy-eight counties had top one peren-US -en-US cent shares above 23.9 percent. Shares were en-US highest in Teton County, Wyoming, (59 peren-US -en-US cent). Indian River County was 10th at 40.4 en-US percent, followed closely by Martin County en-US at 40.3 percent. en-US In Indian River County, the average en-US income of the top one percent was en-US $2,921,375, versus $43,473 for the bottom en-US 99 percent.en-US The study authors blamed the disparity to en-US a large degree on the decline of unions, en-US resulting in a loss of worker bargaining en-US power.en-US While the degree of income inequality en-US differs across the country, the underlying en-US forces are clear, said study co-author Mark en-US Price, an economist at the Keystone en-US Research Center in Harrisburg, Penn. Its en-US the result of intentional policy decisions to en-US shift bargaining power away from working en-US people and towards the top one percent. To en-US reverse this, we should enact policies that en-US boost workers ability to bargain for higher en-US wages, rein in the salaries of CEOs and the en-US financial sector, and implement a progresen-US -en-US sive tax system.en-US Rising inequality affects virtually every en-US part of the country, not just large urban en-US areas or financial centers, said co-author en-US Estelle Sommeiller, a socio-economist at the en-US Institute for Research in Economic and en-US Social Sciences in France. Its a persistent en-US problem throughout the country in big citen-US -en-US ies and small towns, in all 50 states. While en-US the economy continues to recover, policyen-US -en-US makers should make it a top priority to grow en-US the incomes of working people while reignen-US -en-US ing in corporate profits.en-US The Economic Policy Institute is a nonen-US -en-US profit, nonpartisan think tank created in en-US 1986 to include the needs of lowand miden-US -en-US dle-income workers in economic policy disen-US -en-US cussions.

en-US 9 en-USDr. Rendell said he discovered that $2.3 milen-US -en-US lion had been moved between accounts en-US without his authorization. Those funds, he en-US said, were responsible for dropping the conen-US -en-US tingency reserve below where it needed to en-US be.en-US While no ill intent was alleged and no en-US funds were missing, Dr. Rendell was clearly en-US displeased. He told the board and the public en-US that he had ordered the return of the funds en-US to the general operating fund. Dr. Rendell en-US also stated that the funds should not have en-US been moved by assistant superintendant en-US Carter Morrison without his authorization.en-US As I stated at the workshop, I was suren-US -en-US prised to see the end of the year unrestricted en-US fund balance of the tentative budget projecten-US -en-US ed to be as low as 3.5 percent, Dr. Rendell en-US said.en-US I pledged to you at the workshop that I en-US would take action to reduce the projected en-US expenditures and ensure that we are able to en-US maintain a projected unrestricted fund balen-US -en-US ance of at least five percent, if not higher. en-US Upon receiving the tentative budget book en-US on Friday, July 20, I began to review it page en-US by page. What I discovered was that at many en-US of our schools, 12 to be exact, there were en-US extremely large increases in the non-discreen-US-en-US tionary salary accounts.en-US These large increases in salary budgets at en-US these schools were not associated with en-US increases in teacher or other staff allocaen-US -en-US tions. In other words, the budgets for these en-US salaries at these schools were increased suben-US -en-US stantially without any associated increase in en-US staffing. By my estimate this increase in en-US funding was between two and three million en-US dollars.en-US Because of what I found out I met with en-US Mr. Morrison, one of our assistant superinen-US -en-US tendants, on Friday, July 27. At that meeting en-US I asked Mr. Morrison why the non-discreen-US -en-US tionary salary budgets at these various en-US schools was increasing so substantially en-US without an increase in staff. He stated that en-US on the afternoon of July 20, he inserted en-US approximately $2.3 million into these varien-US -en-US ous school accounts to cover a list of vacant en-US positions he had received from our position en-US control specialist.en-US My conclusion was that the transfer of en-US the $2.3 million was not necessary. I asked en-US Mr. Morrison who made the decision to en-US transfer the $2.3 million into these accounts. en-US He stated that he did it on his own. He made en-US the transfer without my knowledge or direcen-US -en-US tion.en-US Those transfers, Dr. Rendell said, brought en-US the projected unrestricted fund balance en-US down to three and a half percent, below en-US what the board was comfortable with. Dr. en-US Rendell said that he immediately contacted en-US each board member and told them what he en-US had discovered.en-US Dr. Rendell said that he then directed Mr. en-US Morrison to prepare new budget documents en-US that would reflect the return of the $2.3 milen-US-en-US lion back to the general operating fund.en-US The return of the funds that were inapen-US -en-US propriately transferred on July 20 resulted in en-US a projected fund balance of 5.7 percent. en-US That is a stark contrast to the projected en-US unassigned fund balance of 3.5.en-US I have also identified several other line en-US items in the budget that Ill be reviewing to en-US ensure that we do not have other accounts en-US that are not budgeted appropriately.en-US Board member Shawn Frost said that he en-US was very pleased with Dr. Rendells hanen-US-en-US dling of the situation.en-US The superintendent immediately turned en-US to that process and began looking through, en-US line by line, and found some, candidly, trouen-US -en-US bling things that hes taken action on, and en-US hes corrected, and Im sure well see ripples en-US of this over the next few weeks, Mr. Frost en-US said. But, having that demonstration of en-US leadership, I feel confident that were on the en-US right path. Dr. Rendell knows that the en-US expectation by me is that we will be above en-US five percent without impacting student proen-US-en-US grams. Some of the things are unpleasant, en-US but thats what leaders do, they hold their en-US subordinate leaders accountable.en-US I would not support anything that put us en-US below the five percent reserves, Mr. Frost en-US added.en-US Board member Tiffany Justice also en-US expressed approval of the superintendents en-US handling of the situation.en-US Weve learned some things that are en-US extremely concerning, and I take confidence en-US in the fact that the superintendent has taken en-US direct control of the budget process, Ms. en-US Justice said. Hes assured us that there will en-US be some changes being made and the fund en-US balance will be back up where it needs to en-US be.en-US I want to assure each of you that I will en-US continue to inspect every aspect of the buden-US -en-US get as we move towards a final 2018-19 buden-US -en-US get in September, Dr. Rendell concluded. I en-US will also keep you informed and up to date en-US of any changes via phone calls and written en-UScommunication. In addition, I anticipate en-US holding another budget workshop in August en-US to review the final budget before we bring it en-US to you for approval in September.en-USSuperintendenten-USFrom page 1 en-USINDIAN RIVER en-US COUNTY Each candien-US -en-US date was asked to provide en-US a bio of up to 100 words, en-US and a summary of the en-US biggest issue facing the en-US community that they could address as a Ciren-US -en-US cuit Judge. Their answers follow:en-USLouis Lou Larsen:en-USBio: Ive worked as an attorney over 26 en-US years. I am a board certified civil trial lawen-US -en-US yer among only 7 percent of all Florida en-US attorneys. Ive worked most of my career on en-US the Treasure Coast representing individuals en-US and businesses in many different matters en-US including personal injury, criminal defense, en-US general civil litigation and marital law. My en-US non-litigation practice areas include wills en-US and trusts, probate, trademarks, copyrights, en-US liens and business transactions. I am of en-US counsel with the Treasure Coast Legal law en-US firm with offices in Stuart, Port St. Lucie en-US and Ft. Pierce. I am admitted in six states en-US and also the federal court for the southern en-US district of Florida.en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: Circuit judges are responsible for en-US many different matters in addition to crimien-US -en-US nal law. Currently, 14 of the 29 judges in our en-US circuit are former en-US prosecutors. One of en-US my opponents is a en-US prosecutor and the en-US other is a former en-US policeman turned en-US lawyer with a practice en-US focusing primarily in en-US criminal law. Our en-US bench needs diversity en-US in legal experience to en-US fill this vacancy. Our en-US bench needs judges en-US with experience in all en-US areas of circuit judge responsibility not just en-US criminal law. I am the only candidate with en-US the depth and breadth of experience to hanen-US -en-US dle any of the judicial assignments on the en-US first day of work.en-US Contact info for Louis Larsen: en-US www.laren-US -en-US, en.353en-US Email: en-US Bob Meadows:en-USBio: 60 years old. I live in Vero Beach and en-US have strong family ties to this community. A en-US pioneer family in Indian River and St. Lucie en-US counties. My father, my two siblings and I en-US were born in Vero. My son, two of my en-US grandchildren, and my sister live in Vero.en-US No other candidate has the range and en-US quality of experience that I have. I was a en-US local Law Enforcement Officer for 16 years, en-US then became an attorney practicing at the en-US State and Federal levels, giving me unique en-US and diverse hands-on experience of all en-US aspects of the courten-US -en-US room. This wide en-US spectrum gives me a en-US solid foundation to be en-US an excellent Judge.en-US Q: What is the bigen-US -en-US gest issue concerning en-US your community en-US right now that you en-US can affect in the office en-US you seek and, if electen-US-en-US ed, how do you plan en-US on solving that issue?en-US A: An issue facing en-US the Judiciary known as the pipeline refers en-US to juveniles going from dropping out of en-US school, in trouble, in jail; beginning a cycle en-US of lost in the system. This cycle cannot be en-US broken by the judiciary alone. There are en-US diversionary programs in other jurisdicen-US-en-US tions that are having a positive effect on our en-US youth.

It was the day before en-US St. Patricks Day, an easy day en-US to remember. If anybody en-US has any information about en-US what car she got into, or en-US who she left the area with, en-US we need to know, and we en-US need to know it soon.en-US Wed like to thank the en-US community as well for all of en-US the support over almost five en-US months, Ms. Baker said. en-US The support of everyone, en-US and the love shown us.

To keep seniors safe at en-US home, the VNA has created the Fall Prevenen-US -en-US tion Program, which includes comprehenen-US -en-US sive care planning for those who have fallen en-US in the last six months and/or are considered en-US at high risk for falling.en-US Indian River County Fire-Rescue reporten-US -en-US edly has had over 5,000 fall calls in the en-US past five years and is seeing a 10-15 percent en-US increase this year. A frequent faller is en-US someone who has fallen repeatedly and has en-US either been admitted to the hospital or has en-US called upon emergency services to aid them en-US in getting back up. For those who suffer an en-US injury from falling, the fall can be costly and en-US sometimes fatal. For the lucky ones who en-US escape injury, repeatedly relying on fire-resen-US-en-US cue to lend a hand takes first responders off en-US the road.en-US Medical management is the first step in en-US reducing your risk of falling. Health factors en-US that can contribute to falls are being over the en-US age of 65, osteoporosis, taking multiple en-US medications, changes in vision and sensaen-US -en-US tion in the feel and change in balance and en-US walking speed and/or patters, stated Maren-US -en-US garet Olsen, DPT, VNAs Therapy Supervien-US -en-US sor.

The program utilizes both nursen-US-en-US es and therapists and encompasses medicaen-US -en-US tion management as well as physical and en-US occupational therapy, depending on the en-US underlying cause(s). Often, falling is the en-US byproduct of a recent surgery, medication en-US side effects, chronic illness or home envien-US -en-US ronment.en-US Environmental hazards are revealed en-US through VNAs home assessment, completen-US -en-US ed by a VNA nurse/therapist and suggesen-US -en-US tions for remediation are provided.
