Traffic fines increase
Effective Feb. 1, the Clerk of
Circuit Court in Indian River
County raised nearly all traffic
citation fees by at least $10.
The most significant
increase was speeding in a
school area or construction
zone, 15 to 19 miles above the
speed limit. That fee
increased from $323 to $383..
Traveling 20 to 29 miles above
the speed limit increased
from $373 to $433.
A bicycle citation remained
the same at $41.50. The fine
for having improper equip-
ment was reduced from $83
to $73.

Economic summit
highlights desire for-
action, not just talk
People from around the
county attended an econom-
ic summit on Feb. 5 led by the
Indian River County Com-
mission at the Sebastian City
Council Chamber.
Commissioner Bob Solari
led the discussion and intro-
duced many speakers
throughout the morning ses-
sion, all interested in growing
the county's economy.
With unemployment rates
hovering around 9.6 percent,
much of the discussion was
about how to bring more
quality employment to the
area.
One speaker, Ray Crabbs of
New Planet Energy, repre-
sented a business interested
in coming into the county to
create an ethanol plant that
would turn carbon-based
products, including ordinary
garbage, into fuel.
Commissioner Wesley
Davispresented his own
ideas to make the county
more business friendly at the
meeting, some of which
included regulation reform,
instituting a tax abatement
program and offering impact
fee credits.
Commissioner Peter
O'Bryan also was a propo-

Students make valentines for military personnel


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
SEBASTIAN Students
at Pelican Island and
Sebastian River elemen-,
tary schools and other
schools around the coun-
ty helped make this Feb.
14 holiday better
known as Valentine's Day
- one filled with love and
encouragement for sol-
diers overseas.
The schools partnered
with the Military Moms
Prayer Group an inter-
denominational group
that meets once a week in
Vero Beach to pray togeth-
er for sons and daughters
serving in the military -
to send valentines, letters


and sweet treats to sol-
diers in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
Joyce Desrosiers, coor-
dinated the drive and said
.that a total of 69 boxes
were stuffed with cards
and goodies, especially
chocolate, for the service-
men.
"This is the only time of
year when the troops can
receive chocolates., It's
much too hotat any other
time," said Ms. Desrosiers.
She estimated the chil-
dren contributed approxi-
mately 1,000 valentines.
"The letters and cards
from our schools are the
true blessing in these
boxes," Ms. Desrosiers
wrote in an e-mail.


"The children are just so
innocent and their words
are so inspiring and give
such hope," she added.
"It's the letters from the
children that the soldiers
love the most," Ms.
Desrosiers said.
The Military Moms
coordinate various drives
throughout the year to
ensure the soldiers under-
stand they are loved,
appreciated and not for-
gotten.
Ms. Desrosiers' son,
Justin Hbecker, is a ser-
geant in the U.S. Army.

Local State Farm


clients urged to shop


competition, await


regulators' decision


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
State Farm agent Glenn
Rains has this message for
his 225 policyholders in
Indian River County: Have
a backup plan in place, but
don't rush to cancel cover-
age.
Like the other 826 State
Farm agents across Florida,
Mlr. Rains has been fielding-
nonstop calls from clients,
many of whom want to
sw\ch to other carriers.
"There's a misconception
that State Farm will be can-
celling policies within the
next 90 days, which is not
true," Mr. Rains said.
Under state law, the
insurer must give six
months notice to pplicy-
.~,ake:,i if it opts not to
renew their policies. This
means that if State Farm
gets the approval of state
regulators by April, the pol-
icy cancellations could
begin by October.
The news of the market
leader's intension to cancel
its homeowners' insurance
business sent policyhold-
ers scrambling to ensure
continued coverage.
But in an unexpected
t\ist, competing agencies
aren't eagerly lapping up
the new business. Instead,
many are urging State Farm
clients not to rush out and
buy new policies just yet.
At the Farm Bureau
Insurance Company, for
instance, employees have
been fielding calls from
concerned State Farm cus-
tomers since the news


'To the average con-
sumer, I know that
denying State Farm
the rate increase is
appealing. But it's
literally crippling the
property markets'.

Calvin Reams
Farm Bureau Insurance
agency manager


broke.
One receptionist at a
Sebastian office said staff
had picked up about 100
calls.
"The phones have been
ringing off the hook and
people are coming in, say-
ing they've been with State
Farm a really long time and
are angry that they're being
cancelled after all these
years," she said.
But the Farm Bureau
office is advising clients to
stay calm, said Calvin
Reams, agency manager for
Indian River County.
"We're trying to calm
their fears," he said. "Noth-
ing has happened as of yet,
and even if it does (hap-
pen), none of (their poli-
cies) will be cancelled this
year."
He says that like many of
his colleagues, he isn't cele-
brating the. news of State
Farm's planned departure
from property insurance
business in Florida.

Four chaplains' sacrifice remembered


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
SEBASTIAN Ernie
Heaton doesn't dwell in
the past, but on Feb. 3,
his mind traveled back in
time to an event that
changed his life more
than half a century ago.
"Right now, 66 years
and three hours ago, I
was on a ship that was
torpedoed," said Mr.
Heaton,
Mr. Heaton was one of
230 survivors aboard the
USAT Dorchester, which
was sunk by a German
torpedo on Feb. 3, 1943.
The event is widely
remembered because of
the sacrifices of four U.S.
Army chaplains who gave
up their own lifejackets


to save the lives of other
soldiers.
The survivors and
heroes of the tragedy
were honored in Sebast-
ian's Riverview Park on
Feb. 3, with a plaque near
the Veteran's Memorial.
"I was in the water for
nine and a half hours by
myself before I was
picked up by the Coast
Guard," said Mr. Heaton.
A total of 904 people
were on the ship.
"What most people
don't talk about is that
there was a big storm a
day or two before the
ship was torpedoed and
the storm coated the ship
with a lot of ice and the
lifesaving equipment was
frozen in place," said Mr.
See SACRIFICE, A2


World War II veteran
Ernie Heaton reads
aloud the newly-erected
plaque in Riverview
Park dedicated to four
chaplains who died
aboard the sinking
Dorchester after giving
their life jackets to other
soldiers and sailors. Mr.
Heaton is one of the
survivors.

Sacrifice
From page Al
Heaton.
Accounts of the sinking
tell of the chaplains pray-
ing and comforting the
men aboard the ship and
helping evacuate as many
as they could.
The bravery and courage
of the four men, Rabbi
Alexander D. Goode,
Methodist minister, the
Rev. George L. Fox, Roman
Catholic priest, the Rev.
John P. Washington and
Reformed Church in Amer-
ica Rev. Clark V. Poling,


deserve to be remembered,
said Matthew Sims, secre-
tary of the Four Chaplains
Monument Committee,
group of local citizens,
including Mr. Heaton, who
desire to honor the chap-
lains.
The committee
approached Sebastian offi-
cials about using the land
in the park for the monu-
ment and the city council
generously agreed, Mr.
Sims said.
A lighted glass monu-
ment encircled by a brick
walkway and benches will
eventually be erected
where the plaque currently


stands, said county histori-
an Ruth Stanbridge.
Thd monument is spon-
sored by the Four Chap-
lains Monument Commit-
tee, the city of Sebastian
and the Indian River Coun-
ty Historical Society.
"I can't think of a better
place for it to be than in
Riverview Park," said
Sebastian Mayor Richard
Gillmor. "It is an honor for
our city to be involved with
this project."
"The spirit of interfaith
in action, of four men who
gave their lives, it's a story
that needs telling," said the
mayor.


"It's what America is all
about," Mayor Gillmor
added.
Mr. Sims first heard the
story of the four chaplains
seven years ago.
"Once I heard about it I
wanted to be a part of the
project," said Mr. Sims,
who served in the U.S.
Army for 10 years.
For Mr. Sims, the faith
and sacrifice of the chap-
lains is of vital importance.
"If we are able to spread
the same type of spirit they
had and they were of dif-
ferent faiths and share
that with our children, that
is wonderful, because faith

will take you a long way,"
he said.
More than 60 people
attended the unveiling cer-
emony..
"The city has really
embraced the project and
arriving today and seeing
the crowd was marvelous,"
said Mr. Sims.


"Apparently our small
vision wasn't so small after
all," Mr. Sims said with a
smile.

going to take on some of
their policies, but I just
don't want to do it at the
State Farm's agents'
expense," he said.
State Farm announced
last month that it could
cancel property and casu-
alty coverage after Florida
insurance regulators
denied it a rate increase of
more than 47 percent.
The firm said that bil-
lions in losses during the
2004 hurricane season
forced it to borrow $750
million from its parent
company, State Farm
Mutual.
Spokeswoman Michal
Connolly said that rising
operating costs, declining
revenue and several other


factors have prevented the
company from repaying
the debt.
In its withdrawal plan,
submitted to state insur-
ance regulators for
approval, State Farm offi-
cials say that the company
is likely to become insol-
vent by 2011. It could reach
its demise even sooner they
say, if its' policyholders
sustain hurricane damage
around $175 million before
then.
State regulators are likely
to decide by April whether
they'll allow the company
to withdraw as planned.
In the meantime, some
observers fear that what
looks like a good business
opportunity for State
Farm's competitors might
return to haunt the state in
a few years.
"It's potentially disas-
trous to the insurance


industry," Mr. Reams said.
"State Farm has the largest
market share, and the rest
of the industry cannot
absorb its exposure."
His fear is that if Florida
insurance regulators
approve State Farm's pro-
posals; the competing
agencies that step in to fill
the gap will lack State
Farm's financial reserves. If
a major hurricane forces
them to make bulk payouts
to homeowners, he fears
they won't be able to afford
to fulfill the terms of these
policies.
"To the average con-
sumer, I know that denying
State Farm the rate
increase is appealing," he
said. "But it's literally crip-
pling the property markets.
This is going to hurt the
industry ... and could have
negative impact on the
state down the road."

New cable channel

targets older adults


By Shelley Koppel
For Hometown News
Comcast, the nation's
largest cable provider, has
joined 'forces with Retire-
ment Living TV to'bring pro-
gramming to those 50 and

tainment of special interest

lines; "Another Chance for

Florence Henderson Show,"
an entertainment program;
and "The Prudent Advisor," a


program about getting the
most from your money.
Marta Casas-Celaya, direc-
tor of government and com-
munity affairs for Comcast,
believes the time is right to
offer RLTV on the Treasure
Coast, although it began in
2006.
"Comcast is pleased to
offer its customers on the
Treasure Coast and Palm
Beaches a network with pro-
gramming that is uniquely
relevant to viewers age 50

.ly to their needs and inter-
ests," she said.

the mail, and so the whole
purpose behind the boxes is
to make sure the soldiers
know that we're thinking
about them," said Ms.
Desrosiers.
In a drive held right before
the holidays last year, the
community stepped up and
sent 983 boxes to soldiers.
Hale Groves donated six
cases of sausages, crackers
and cheese for the valentine
boxes and Aero Storage
donated a storage space for
the packing materials and
donated items to be kept
year round.
Sending letters and pack-
ages during other times of
the year is just as important
as sending them during the
special holiday times, said
Collette Loo, a member of
Military Moms.
"They are sacrificing for
us every day, and if we can
help them in this way. even
though it seems very little,
it's important." said Nis. Loo.
Her daughter, Colleen,
attends Pelican Island Ele-
mentary School, and
enjoyed making the valen-
tines out of colored paper
and doilies durifig art class.
Students at Pelican Island
contributed almost 250
valentines for the care


boxes.
"When my son was out on
a mission in Iraq, the sol-
diers found a 2 foot by 6 foot
board and pounded it into
the ground and attached
their letters to it," Ms.
Desrosiers said.
"They called it their hope
board, and when they were
down or depressed they
would sit there and read the
letters from the kids and are
lifted up a little bit," said Ms.
Desrosiers.
"When you're a family
member and you hear about
how terrible it is over there,
Your heart just dies," she
said.

pated in making valentines

Piper cuts more


jobs, fights


to stay viable


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com

VERO BEACH Piper
Aircraft officials
announced that 300
employees were laid off
on Feb. 10, citing a large
decrease in work orders
as the major factor.
"General aviation has
been experiencing one
of the worst downturns
in its' history and sales of
airplanes have sharply
deteriorated over the
past few months," said
Mark Miller, Piper's chief
spokesman in an official
statement.
In order to ensure the
future of the company,
Piper officials made the
tough decision to release
a. third of their work-
force.
"It's agonizing; it's
heart wrenching to think
about these employees
and their families, but
there just aren't enough
orders coming in to be
able to keep them," Mr.
Miller said.
"Right now, the world
is in stop-mode," he
said.
"Nobody is buying air-
planes, nobody is buying
cars and the people that
want to and can, the
banks won't lend to
them."
SBut in the face of this
current economic chal-
lenge, Piper is striving to
preserve as many busi-
ness and jobs as possi-
blf Mr. Miller said.
With the layoffs, Piper
now employs slightly
more than 650 people.
"When the economy
improves, every attempt


will be made to rehire
impacted employees,"
Mr. Miller said in the
statement.
A one-week shutdown
in April and July was also
announced in the state-
ment that was released
last Tuesday.
The closing will help
the company "avoid
building up Unnecessary
inventory and to provide
time to assess rapidly
changing market condi-
tions," the statement
said.
"The shutdowns will
be without pay and will
affect all employees,:' the
statement read.
A $32 million incentive
package, of which
Piper has already
received $10 million -
provided by the state
and county to retain
Piper was used to build
the company's infra-
structure, but could not
be-used to pay employee
salaries, Mr. Miller said.
"Even if we used the
money to pay the
employees, the company
would go under and
there would be no jobs at
all," said the spokesman.
In January, Piper CEO
Jim Bass confirmed the
layoff of 150 employees
in December.
Mr. Miller said addi-
tional measures may
have to be taken if mar-
ket conditions continue
to deteriorate.
"We are hopeful that
we will emerge from this
downturn with renewed
optimism that better
days are ahead of us;"
Mr. Miller said in the
statement.

What's hiding


behind the red X?'


UNDER STAFFED LIBRARIES...


FEEL (, I ECjoOMIC Pl.r"i!


If you have surfed the "
Web' for any length of
tim, then I'm sure
you've runlinto the
infamous "red X," where a
picture or other graphic
was supposed to appear. L
SWhat is that?
Why is it that some
pages load fine, but.some
pages just show a red X
where you know a picture
should be?
The red X rarely means
there is something wrong
with your machine or
Web browser. The red X
means the picture or
graphic the Web page is
referring to is not where
the Web page thinks it's
supposed to be.
You see, every time a
Web page lq qjI ,ypu~r,;
browser, there are a ton
of things that aregti~hg- '
on in tlhe background
that you usually aren't
aware of.
What you see are the
results of all of these
things either working
properly or not,
The red Xis an indica-
tor that something didn't
make it down from the
Internet and load into the
browser the way it was
supposed to.
When you go to a Web
site that has pictures or
any other content that
isn't rhw text, there is a
line of code embedded
behind the scenes on that
page that points to.the
location dfgbaotev'r the
page is trying to display.
MostS] f
images te Web page are
pointirtglo.are right
where the page thinks it
is and it displays fine.
Sometimes the picture
isn't where the page
thinks it is, and that's
when your browser
displays the little red X.
Think of it as a place-
holder marking where
the image is supposed to
be on the page.
But how can this be?
Don't Web designers
check their work to make.
sure that the pages
display properly?
Not always.
These days, just about
anybody can throw
together a Web site, and
that means some Web
designers just don't know
how to check their work
properly. ,
For instance, back
when I was first learning
how to design Web sites, I
set up a page, uploaded it
to the Web and then
checked it with my
browser to make sure it
looked OK. I was pleased
because everything
appeared just as I had
designed it.
Then I had a friend
look at the page. He told
me there was a problem.
None of the pictures


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


would load, just a bunch
of little red Xs.
I took a look at the
page's "source code" and
found that for each of my
pictures the'page was
looking for them on the
browser's local "c" drive
and not the images folder
I had uploaded when I
created the site.
Since the images were
indeed in my c drive -
where the page was
looking for them they
displayed just fine when I
looked at the page in my
browser.
However, because no
one else had the images
on their c drive the
images failed to load.
In that example, even
though I checked the
page and all seemed well,
it took someone else to
discover the problem.
Sometimes a page is
pointing to an image on
another Web site and if
that image gets taken
down or moved there will
be nothing there when
the page goes looking for
it.
Sometimes images may
fail to load because of
heavy traffic. If the site
you are accessing is too
busy or has a ton of
grap~hies, [he images may
time out when loading
and you may have to '' .' ".
refresh-the page to get all
the pictures to display. '
These are just a few of
the most common
reasons why an image
may fail to load.
You may even see the
same symptoms in your
e-mail. With e-mail,
however, the problem
often results from your
security settings being
set too high.
If you are using Out-
look Express for instance,
and you find that you
never see images load in
your e-mail messages, .
but you are seeing a ton
-of red X place holders,"
check your security
settings.
Click tools, options
then security'and make
sure that the "block
images and external
content" checkbox is not
checked.
If it is, uncheck it arid
you should then be able
to see your E-mail the
way it was composed.

We're not all techies

I say amen to the person who spoke up for those of us
who don't have computers. There are contests and things
I'd like to order which are available only by computer, I
consider it discrimination against many of us that can't
afford to get a computer or those of us that are elderly and
.unable to learn all of the things needed to use one. Why
can't we be given an address or a phone number to call?

Stop high-toning

I wish something were said about the employees at city
hall who act like they are so big and they high-tone people
and act like they are royalty. There are layers of secretaries,


My valentine message


Each year I have
written a valentine to
my husband, Roy,
telling you about his
struggle with Alzheimer's
and Parkinson's disease.
As many of you know,
Roy lost his courageous
battle on Sept. 13, 2008,
Sbut I am continuing the
tradition, because there is
much more to say.
Feb. 12 would have been
Roy's 81st birthday. In the
nearly 35 years I knew Roy,.
he was the kindest person I
knew, with the strongest
sense of social justice. He
saw Gandhi speak and
marched against the
imprisonment of Nelson
Mandela. Even as he
declined, he still fought for
what was right.
LastValentine's Day,

he went to the day center
he attended twice a week.
When he came home and I
asked him about what I
hoped would be a fun day,
he began to cry. I finally
got the story from him..
Another rider on his bus
was giving the driver a
hard time verbally,
because there'd been a
delay and they were
running late. Roy hated
bullies and scorned people
who took out their anger
and frustrations at people
who could not answer
back. He told the man to


you can't get to a city hall member and people are suffer-
ing. Every day people tell me how hard up they are. Why
can't city employees cut back on their salaries? And cut out
all that waste and cut back on their staff and help us tax-
payers out.
I'm sorry for those who are so hard up. The way the peo-
ple in those jobs talk to customers has to stop.

EMT service is tops

My friend from Michigan fell and cracked her head open
and the EMTs got here really quickly and helped her out
and even cleaned up. I wanted to say thank you.

No smoking at show

In regards to the juried art show in Sebastian: nowhere
did it say who won the show. And I wish they would have
limited the smoking at the show. I didn't want to buy art
from someone with a cigar as long as his mental capacity.
Editor's note: The reporter who covered that event for
Hometown News was not present on the last day ofjudg-
ing, however, we'll be'happy to find out who won and report
back.

When was a kid.L.

I walked back and forth from school four times a day, for
more than 2 miles when I was a kid.
Nowadays, the busses stop every couple of blocks, while
parents sit in the cars waiting with the kids. Isn't it a waste
of taxpayer's money? With'all these new sidewalks, can't
the kids walk to the bus stops? No wonder Americans are
so lazy.


e for 2009


stop it and the man
became verbally abusive to
Roy.
' Inthe past, with British
understatement and
humor, he would have put
the man in his place. Ill, he
stood up for the driver, but
it took a toll.
Our anniversary was Jan.
4 and that was a very hard
day for me. I suspect Roy's
birthday and Valentine's
Day will be hard, too, I will
do something special to,
remember him.
Five years ago, we lost a
tree to Hurricane Frhnces
and I was very upset. Roy
planted a tree we had
brought from up north
with us in its place. It has
grown in the last five years.
This year, I am sur-
rounding it with stones
and mulch and making a


plaque that will say "Roy's
Tree." It is my way of
honoring him and letting
him know that I have not
forgotten his special day.
As I mentioned once
before, Roy always called
his mother on his birthday
to thank her for giving him
life. Life was so precious to
Roy and he loved it and
lived it fully. I can't call him
on his.birthday but I can
tell him how lucky I was to
have had him in my life.
Happy birthday, Roy. I
love you and miss you -
more than.words can say.

Miraculous pup looking for love


rT is year onValentine's
Day I have a female on
my mind and I don't
even mind her big ears or
bad breath.
I met Bissy just last week,
but one meeting was all it
took to lose my heart. Just
one nuzzle from her ice-
cold nose and a happy lick
and I was a goner.
You guessed it, Bissy is a
puppy, but not one like
you've ever met before.
She's only 7 months old, but
she's seen more of the
ugliness of the world than
most dogs have to endure
in a lifetime, thankfully.
Originally adopted as a
puppy from a shelter in
Indiana, Bissy somehow


found her way to Florida
"and through some unfortu-
nate circumstances,
became homeless, mal-
nourished almost to the
point of no return and
suffered from serious
neglect.
When found the boxer
mix was curled up under a
carport, starving to death
and had so many fleas and
skin infections they nearly
cost the poor pup her life.
By all accounts Bissy, who
had been neglected and
unloved, should have hated
people. But this little
miracle puppy, who has
already beaten the odds by
surviving, is friendly,
See PUP, A9


Bissy just wants to run and
play with Jackie Lyman of
the Humane Society of St.
Lucie County. Bissy was
brought to the shelter,
neglected, infected and
rejected. Bissy has a long
road ahead for good
health, where finding a
good home will be the
conclusion of her rehabili-
tation.

Company celebrates sixth anniversary


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST -
Spread the Word, a public
relations firm for nonprofit
organizations, will celebrate
its sixth anniversary on Feb.
25.
The company works
exclusively with churches
and nonprofit organizations
and, taking that into con-
sideration, Brenda French is
thrilled to still be "spreading
the word."
Ms. French opened the
company in 2003 to assist


churches and nonprofit
organizations in keeping.
the community informed
about their special pro-
grams, services and needs
through public service cam-
paigns.
"I owe special thanks to
the churches and organiza-
tions that have trusted me
to submit their information
and all the people in the
media for passing the infor-
mation on to the communi-
ty through their publica-
tions, radio and television
programs, and Web sites,"
Ms. French said.


She feels local churches
and nonprofit organizations
do wonderful things for, the
community, including
youth programs and senior
activities, feeding the hun-
gry, bringing national and
international speakers and
entertainment to the area,
assisting those in need and
more.
Through Spread the Word,
Ms. French is able to sit
down with those that make
these things happen and
forward the details to the
local media.
"The media may have a


steady stream of bad news
bombarding them, but they
are wonderful about includ-
ing these events and special
services in their community
calendars and often
expanding the coverage
with interviews, articles and
photos," she said.
As the company begins its
seventh year, Ms. French
looks forward to assisting
even more churches and
nonprofits.

Beware of Africanized, also known as 'killer,' bees


This column originally
appeared on April 20, 2007.
Hi everybody. Once
upon a time, when
you saw a honeybee
fluttering around a flower,
you could almost bet that it
would mind its' business
and not be a bother to
anybody.
Now that Africanized
honeybees have spread
throughout the state, such is
not always the case.


South Stuart
772.223.9630


More often than not,
these small creatures
normally mind their own
business at hand. This
scenario is slowly beginning
to change. With the intro-
duction of the Africanized
bees, you no longer can
assume the bee you see is
going to leave you alone.
The problem is that only a
bee expert can tell the
difference between an
ordinary honeybee and one
that is Africanized. Killer

bees are cousins of bees that
were imported to South
America in an attempt to
breed more efficient
honeybees that are better
adapted to a tropical
climate. This all transpired
in 1957.
The problems began to
mount when they found the
bees were multiplying much
faster then expected. Some
of these bees "escaped"
from their intended area
and the migration began.
Killer bees acquired their
name because they tend to
be more aggressive than
normal honeybees. They
will chase down people or
animals for long distances
and in much larger num-


bers then normal bees.
You can initiate an attack
by simply getting into the
bees territory. You do not
have to disturb the hive in
order to get attacked. This is
what makes them so
dangerous.
It is now known the bees
are in our area. It is a good
idea to simply assume that
when you see a honeybee, it
might be a killer bee and
stay clear of its path. These
bees can make hives in
almost any structure, so be
aware of large numbers of
bees coming and going out
of trees, walls or virtually
any object that has a hollow
area.

not be a problem. Remem-
ber that bees are necessary
for pollination of flowers,
fruits and vegetables.
In the unlikely event you
are under attack from a
swarm of bees, run and find
shelter as soon as possible.
When you are in a safe area
away from the bees, deter-
mine if you will need
medical attention. If you
have been stung several
times, look for symptoms
such as breathing difficul-
ties. Seek medical attention
immediately.
Local pain and some
swelling is a normal occur-
rence and does not always
require medical attention. If
you have known allergies to
bee stings, seek medical
attention no matter what. In
addition, if you suspect you
have encountered killer bee
activity, notify authorities
immediately.
Mexican heather
One of my favorite plants
to plant and look at is the
Mexican heather. These
plants boast colorful
lavender, purple or white
flowers. They do well in
summer and winter, in full
sun or partial shade and will
tolerate temperatures as low
as 28 degrees.
Even if they freeze to the
ground, there is a chance
they will grow back. They
have excellent heat toler-
ance but do best with
regular watering. They can
grow to be 3-feet tall but can
be easily trimmed to fit your
needs. They can be propa-
gated from plant cuttings in
the summer and also grown
from seed.

District selects school-related

Employee of the Year


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
.INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Susan Brenton, cafeteria
manager at Treasure Coast
Elementary, is the 2009
school-related Employee of
the Year for the Indian River
County School Distric.
Mrs. Brenton, who is in
her 19th year of employment
with the district, is responsi-
ble for planning, preparing
and distributing more than
700 meals to students and
teachers on a daily basis.
But she has done so much
more than that for students
throughout the school dis-
trict, school officials said.
"Whatever she does, the
health and well-being of stu-
dents is always her top prior-
ity," said Mark Dugan, her
principal.
Mrs. Brenton, established
the "backpack buddies" pro-
gram at Treasure Coast Ele-


mentary a few years ago,
after noticing several stu-
dents arrive at school on
Monday mornings, very
hungry.
She and her staff solicited
donations of food from local
stores and encouraged
donations from students
and staff at Treasure Coast
Elementary. The nonperish-
able food items were then
distributed to students in
need on Friday afternoon
and sent home in back-
packs, so their families
would have something to eat
over the weekend.
With the assistance of the
John's Island Rotary Club,
this project has expanded to
serve 37 students at Treasure
Coast, and approximately 60
students who attend
Fellsmere, Pelican Island
and Vero Beach elementary
schools.
Always thinking of ways to
integrate good nutrition into


the curriculum, Mrs. Bren-
ton solicited the help of
physical education teacher,
Marianne Day, to submit a
grant application to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture,
for its' fresh fruit and veg-
etable program.
They received the grant,
which provides funding for
healthy snacks for students
and staff during the school
day. Additional grants total-
ing $265,000 were received,
so eight more schools could
participate in this program.
Mrs. Brenton was also
instrumental in, getting
grants from the National
Potato Board and local serv-
ice clubs, to enhance nutri-
tional education for stu-
dents and staff.
Mrs. Brenton will com-
pete with nominees from all
school districts in Florida
for the 2009 Florida school-
related Employee of the
Year.

through difficult situations.
Guest speakers at the graduation
ceremony were George Woodley
from Department of Children and
Families and Judge Cynthia Cox.
Law enforcement agencies from
six jurisdictions on the Treasure
Coast participated in the recent
training and graduation.

'La Cage' comes to Riverside

Richard White as Georges, right, and Benjamin Howes as Albin, in Riverside Theatre's production of 'La Cage aux
Folles,' which will be performed from Feb. 13 to March 8.


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH In Eng-
lish, it translates to "the
cage of the crazy ones" but
to theater lovers, the Tony
award-winning and trend-
setting musical "La Cage
aux Folles"' is a lavish,'
musical-filled favorite with
superb song, dynamic
dance, glitzy glamour and
soul-stirring sentiment.
The show, with a cast of
20, will open Friday, Feb. 13
and perform through
March 8 on the Stark Main-
stage at Riverside Theatre
in what promises to be the
season's blockbuster.
"La Cage" debuted' on
Broadway in 1983. The
musical by Harvey Fierstein
and Jerry Herman is based
on a French play, and fea-
tures a gay couple, their St.


Tropez nightclub, featuring
drag queen entertainment,
and the hilarious adven-
tures that ensue when the
son of club manager,
Georges, brings home his
fiancee's conservative par-
ents to meet his "parents."
Directed by Bill.Castelli-
'no of New York City, a
returning Riverside
favorite, "La Cage aux
Folles" stars theater, televi-
sion and movie veterans
Richard White as Georges
and Benjamin Howes as his
lover, Albin, who stars at
the nightclub as "Zaza."
The show became a
smash hit and Mr. Castelli-
no and his castare eager to
share their version with
area audiences who asked
that the show be performed
af Riverside.
When asked ifit's difficult
for performers and direc-


tors to interpret roles
already made famous by
others, the trio didn't blink.
"Every great piece of art.
is subject to interpretation
and this is a multi-dimen-
sional, fecund piece of art.
"We understand the
value of those who have
done it before but it's like a
recipe: you follow it, but
make your own additions.
It's brilliant material," Mr.
Castellino said.
Mr. Howes noted that the
script "affects you in a per-
sonal way and something
in it might be especially
meaningful to me."
"These are very complex
characters with rich rela-
tionships. There's an awful
lot of depth here and layers
to the people," Mr. White
said.
When the show opened
on Broadway almost 26


years ago, it was the first in
which the lead characters
were gay. Nonetheless, the
show appealed to main-
stream as well as gay audi-
ences, thanks to outstand-
ing musical components
and a universal sensibility
of humanism that tran-
scended the gay experience
while at the same time,
embraced it.
"There is a joy of discov-
ery in this piece and Bill
(Castellino) allows us to
explore the intelligence and
integrity of it.
"Harvey Fierstein wrote
about a 20-year relation-
ship (between Albin and
Georges) that almost came
undone," Mr. Howes said; ,
The show made certain
"political" statements
about gays circa the 1980s,

Tuskegee Airmen subject of documentary


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH They
were initially considered to
be part of an "experiment"
that was expected to fail.
But the WWII African-
American aviators, better
known as the Tuskegee Air-
men, proved their critics
wrong and became one of
the most distinguished
military fighter squadrons
in American history.
Their story and a spe-
cial guest appearance by
retired Tuskegee Airman
Col. Hiram Mann will be
told in an award-winning
documentary film to be


shown on Thursday, Feb.
19 at 7 p.m. at an Emerson
Center Humanities Series.
It is open to the public.
The Tuskegee Airmen
were trained at the
Tuskegee Institute in
Alabama during a time
When racism was officially
sanctioned.
The African-American
pilot cadets were elite, col-
lege-educated young men
who were subjected to
cruel discrimination and
allegations that they were
incapable of learning air
combat and the technical
aspects of flying.
However, by war's end,


the Tuskegee Airmen had
distinguished themselves
in every aspect of warfare
and won countless medals,
as well as respect, from a
grateful military and
nation.
"Silver Wings and Civil
Rights: WWII Tuskegee Air-
men" is a film by
writer/director Jon Ander-
son which won best docu-
mentary feature at the 2004
Miami International Film
Festival. Mr. Anderson's.
film features actual
wartime footage and
accounts by surviving
Tuskegee Airmen.
The African-American


pilots were faced with a
daunting, dual challenge,
Mr. Anderson said.
"The Tuskegee Airmen
actually fought two wars:
one that changed the world
and one that helped
change our nation,"' he
said.
The all-black fighter
squadron escorted
bombers into the Euro-
pean theater and were
instrumental in bringing
about changes which led to
the desegregation of the
military by President Harry
Truman in 1948.
The group undoubtedly

also played an inspira-
tional role in kick-starting
what was to become the
nation's civil rights move-
ment. .
The Tuskegee Airmen
never lost a single bomber
during their many mis-
sions over war-torn
Europe.
A Miami native, Mr.
Anderson teaches an
award-winning program in
film production technolo-
gy at Valencia Community
College in Orlando.
His interest in the
Tuskegee Airmen was
piqued after meeting a
retired member of that elite
squadron and subsequently
being encouraged to join
the group as an associate
member.
"I've always been fasci-
nated with WWII aviation


history. The idea for a docu-
mentary became a natural
thing to do.
"It's a story with lots of
intrigue and individuals
who thought these discrim-
inatory policies were not
right. The Airmen are some
of'the finest men I know
and they (rusted me with
lots of stories," Mr. Ander-
son said.
He noted that the surviv-
ing airmen thankfully lived
long enough to see an
African-American presi-
dent.
,"It. was a very historic
moment and the Tuskegee
Airmen pretty much started
the road to that being able
to happen," Mr. Anderson'
said.
Col. Mann, a Titusville
resident and Tuskegee Air-
man, said he refers to that
former "experiment" as an
"experience or flying exper-
iment."
"It took me three attempts

to get in (to the program)
and I was told there were no
facilities to train Negroes to
fly. That ticked me off and
then I heard of a place to
train black pilots.
"They set up an experi-
mental flying school with
the hopes we would fail. But
we turned that adversity
into victory," Col. Mann
said.
The colonel spent his
entire career in the military
until retiring in 1972. During
his tenure, he noted many
changes for African-Ameri-
cans.
"Today I know Negro
admirals, when back in
WWII, they were cooks or


cabin stewards. I'm proud to
be an American," he said.
The Tuskegee Airmen were
invited to the inauguration of
President Barack Obama and
were previously feted in
March 2007 with the Con-
gressional Gold Medal, the
nation's highest civilian
award.
"The best apology we
received came 60 years late.
But President Bush saluted
,us first, even as the com-
mander-in-chief.
"He told us, for salutes
ignored and unreturned, I
salute you," Col. Mann said.

but also focused on emo-
tional statements.
"The concept of the piece
is sweeping in scope, but the
specifics are that this is a gay
relationship, what they
think about each other and
the bravery of being 'out' as
gay men. At the core of it,
drag is an entertaining
device, like tap dancing is to
'42nd Street,'" Mr. Castellino
said.
Theater audiences are
willing and often eager par-
ticipants, even when the
subject matter is beyond
their life experiences, Mr.
White asserts.
"People are more open to
what's there in the dark of
the theater and you give
them a true and honest
depiction," he said.
"People are afraid of
things we don't know..But
drag doesn't hurt anybody
and there is a tradition of
drag in theater. Shake-
speare's women were (por-
trayed by) men," Mr.
Castellino explained.

"You have to get past a lot
of feathers in this show to
get to the issues of things,

how a parent relates to their
child's needs," Mr. Castelli-
no said.
If there is an underlying
message to the show's flashy
entertainment and outra-
geous characters, it is, per-
haps, this: live.

the visions received always
guide me toward truth. I trust

all I need to live, laugh and
prosper. I live life to the

you. Go further and bring
your higher visions into reali-

change. Pay close attention
to the inspirations coming up
from your inner well. Dare to
be different and unlimited
results are yours for the ask-

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20
A Pisces without a dream and
goal is like a fish without

heart is in it before you begin.
When you have these things

Using travel as an idea for a fundraiser


Many of us are
involved in
fundraising in
some form or another.
Whether you are part of
the planning or participat-
ing in an event, we all pretty
much know why we need to
fundraise: money!
Our churches and schools
(public or private), as well
as local and national
organizations, are in need of
money to function. Those
involved are always looking
for new and clever ways to
raise enough of it.
I recently wrote about
traveling with a group and
how beneficial it can be.
Today I would like to
touch on using group travel
as a fundraising event. This
is very near and dear to my
heart, since most of my
adult life has been involved
with local nonprofit and
charitable organizations,
churches and schools to
help raise the necessary
funds for their individual
needs.
Group travel is a great way
to fundraise. YOu get the
benefit of traveling with
others and enjoying your
trip, all while raising money
for something that you care
about.
About eight years ago I
created a program through

my office called "travel for a
cause" and it has helped
many local organizations
make money through travel.
I look at it this way:
people travel anyway, so
why not travel for a cause.
This entails a partnership of
sorts between our company
and the organization, not
just for group travel, but any
travel the organization
sends our way generates a
donation.
We have assisted in
fundraising from local high
schools to out-of-state
college alumni groups,
garden and bridge clubs.
Each has grown every year
to include more partici-
pants.
It takes a lot of time and
effort to fundraise and, with
money so tight for most, we
have to be creative in the
process. If you get\a group
together and travel at the
same time there is "money
to be had."
There are so many
options for travel, therefore,

creative latitude. You can
create a theme cruise that
gets the attention of more
than your close supporters;
possibly entice a person of
fame or recognition to be on
board to get additional
reservations into your
group. A local artist, musi-
cian, speaker, etc. would
generate interested partici-
pants, therefore creating
more bookings and raising
more money.
Group travel, if done right
(choose the best times and
dates of travel, the right
travel companyor cruise
line, etc.), can turn into
dollars. Cruises are favored
because of their inclusive-
ness, but certainly any
travel can be turned into a
fundraiser.
A cruise group is based on
a minimum of eight double
occupancy staterooms. A
tour is generally based on a
minimum of 20 passengers
traveling together. This, of
course, is just a rule-of-
.thumb and by researching
various travel options for
your particular group, this is
where the expertise comes
in.

get additional amenities as
well. The'longer the trip and
the cost, the more money
raised. The biggest issue is
deciding on the where and
when. Once that has been
established, it is up to the
organization to get people
excited about it.
The formula for funds
depends on the travel
company used, but as an
example, an organization
that has 50 passengers
sailing on a seven-night
cruise with all passengers
paying $1,000 per person
can actually raise up to
$4,000 depending on the
ship and sailing date.
It is worth the time and

is nothing more than
planning the cruise and

food you eat and see the
scale moving so slowly that
by this time you tell your-
self, what's the use, it must
be my metabolism or I'm
just big boned.
Remember, it's not what
you eat, it's how you prepare
what you eat, which is the
basis for my column and my
cookbook; that's why I give
you choices.
For some reason, when
you're dieting, many times
you pay attention to what
you eat, not what you drink.
Sugar is the major carbohy-
drate we consume. Check
out your soft drinks.
One teaspoon of sugar
equals 4.2 grams. One 12-
ounce can of Coke contains
39 grams of sugar. Do the
math; that's about nine
teaspoons of sugar. Pepsi
contains 41 grams, that's
almost 10 teaspoons in one
can. Other soft drinks aren't
much better and when it
comes to sweetened iced


tea, I don't even want to
know.
The human body is
amazing, but can fool you
while you think you're doing
things right. Research shows
that while artificial sweeten-
ers make drinks diet
friendly, if you have more
that two cans a day, the
body starts reading it as
sugar.
If you substituted 1 glass
of unsweetened iced tea for
one can of soda a day, you
would lose an average of 15
pounds in a year.
We are addicted to sugar,
as well as salt, and type-2
diabetes and high blood
pressure are rampant. Sugar
is not bad, it's the quantity
that makes it bad.
Fruits contain a natural
sugar (fructose). It is now
made in a granulated form
and today it is made from
corn syrup.
Here's an interesting fact:
it has almost twice the


sweetening power of
granulated sugar, so you
would use half of what you
usually do. It doesn't seem
to be absorbed in the body
the same way as regular
sugar. You can find it by the
pound in large supermar-
kets and health food stores
and it is affordable.
This week's recipe is a
perfect example of how to
prepare what you eat and
make a difference.

of the dishwasher with

creamy sauce is so much
better. A friend who was
born in northern Italy
(Genoa) gave me the recipe
years ago. Recently I made it
healthy by using low-fat or
fat-free cream cheese and
skim milk, evaporated skim
milk, undiluted or fat-free
half and half. You will
eliminate most of the
cholesterol and saturated
fat, but none of the flavor.
If you choose to use
pignoli (pine) nuts I
prefer my sauce without
them, they give the sauce a
sandy texture toast and
finely chop them. Use about
1/4-cup nuts.
NOTE: There is no
suitable substitute for
imported Italian Parmesan
