Sebastian working
waterfronts receive
$3 million
Thanks to an award from
the Stan Mayfield Working
Waterfront Grant program,
the Sebastian. \orlhng
Waterfront Collaborative
will receive $3.16 million to
preserve the working water-
fronts in the city and edu-
cate people about the fish-
ing village heritage of the
city.
The collaborative will use
the funds to purchase prop-
erty and buildings along a
portion of the waterfront,
including the Hurricane
Harbor restaurantbuilding.
Ruth Stanbridge, county
historian, said she hopes
the. project will teach
tourists and even residents
about how the commercial
fishing industry shaped the
beginning of the city of
Sebastian arid how it still
exists today.
The city has agreed to give
$351,000 in a matching
grant.

Employers needed for program


that offers summer jobs to youth


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST Thanks to
$1.3 million in stimulus money,
Workforce Solutions, the private,
nonprofit corporation that man-
ages a workforce development
center for Treasure Coast resi-
dents, is putting together a sum-
mer employment program for
youth ages 16 to 24.
For the first time in many years,
in addition to offering career
exploration experiences for
young people at Indian River
State College, Workforce Solu-


tions is excited to present a paid
work experience program for
youth from Martin, St. Lucie,
Indian River and Okeechobee
counties, said Michael Waninger,
vice president and COO of Work-
force Solutions.
"We're planning to serve about
500 youth this summer, 200 of
them in the summer youth
employment program," said Mr.
Waninger.
"We've had over 500 people,
teens, calling us asking how they
can get into the program, so what
we need now are employers to
sign a pledge to provide mean-


ingful work experi-
ences for those' 200
young people," he
said.
Glenda Matesic,
director of pro-
grams at Workforce
Solutions, agreed.
"We need employers to
step ip to the plate and pledge
work experiences, and really, this
summer is a good time for this to
begin," said Ms. Matesic.
Qualified employers would pro-
vide the tasks and location of
work, but Workforce Solutions
will pay the employee salary and


work- *-
man's compensation, said
Mr. Waninger.
"There is minimal, if any, liabil-
ity for the employer at all. We
have a job coach for each

For many years, the Environmental Learning
Center in Wabasso has opened the eyes of
'fourth- and fifth-grade students from all across
Indian River County to the wonders of the Indian
River Lagoon during Lagoon bays. Amanda
Resmondo, 9, of Sebastian Elementary School,
holds up one end of a seining net during her
class outing on Thursday, April 16.

ST. LUCIE CIiUNTY,-
When Jean, who did not
'want her 'full name used,
was a victim of domestic
violence in the 1960s, she
depended on her family
and friends for help.
She found that no one in
the court system was
assigned to help crime vic-
tims, she recalled last
week.
"It would have been nice
to know there was some-
one to call, even someone
to talk with," she said.
"There was nothing."
But, in recent years,
prosecutors' offices have
hired victim services coor-
dinators. And Jean, a St.
Lucie County resident, is
now volunteering to assist
crime victims.
"Our purpose is to.make
sure victims' rights are
protected," said Lane Frye,
victim services volunteer
coordinator at the State
Attorney's Office.

Victims
From page Al

with efforts to keep the
public aware of the need
to help crime victims.
This year, during
National Crime Victims'
Rights Week, from April
25 to May 2, three events
will be held in St. Lucie
County.
The -fourth annual
Motorcycle Ride for
Rights will begin April 25
at 8:30 a.m. at the State
Attorney's Office, located
at 411 S. Second St. in
Fort Pierce.
On April 28, a public
forum will be held from.
6-8 p.m. at Port St. Lucie
City Hall. It will deal with
the rights of victims of
child abuse, human traf-
ficking and sexual
assault.
An appreciation lunch-
eon.for those who help
victims will be held at
noon on May 1 at the Port
St. Lucie Community
Center.
But Ms. Frye said she
and her volunteers are
not just concerned about
crime victims during that
week.
On a daily basis, volun-
teers inform victims of
their rights, accompany
them to court hearings,
help them apply for com-
pensation through the
state and seek protection
if intimidation is a prob-
lem, Ms. Frye said.
Currently, she said, she
has a total of 16 volun-
teers working in St. Lucie,
Martin and Indian River
counties.
She is looking for vol-
unteers "with a passion"
to help victims and those
who "will treat victims
with the respect and dig-
nity they deserve," Ms.
Frye said.
Volunteers must attend
12 hours of ,training and
are expected to volunteer
at least four hours a
week. They must fill out;
an application and:
undergo a background


Lane Frye

check.
Age doesn't matter, she
said, noting that volun-
teers range in age from
20s to 70s.
A separate program
helps victims of sexual
assault. It includes a cer-
tified rape crisis center
that can be reached at all
times.
Thosevolunteers often
are called to a scene of a
crime to help the victim,
Ms. Frye said. Then, they
continue working with
the victim while their
case goes through the
court system, she said.
Volunteers in that.pro-.
gram receive 30 hours of
training.
Jean. doesn't deal with
sexual assault victims.
She said she's worked
with juveniles, and vic-
tims of traffic accidents,
misdemeanors and
felonies.
She's worked with
domestic assault.victims,
to whom she especially
relates because of her
experience as a victim.
"I understand the cycle
of violence," she said. "I
know where the victims
are coming from."
She said she also knows
that victims must make
their own decisions on
how. to proceed. But she
said she can help guide
them by providing infor-
mation about resources
and options.
Anyone interested in
becoming a volunteer can
contact Ms. Frye at (772)
462-1390 or (866) 828-
7273.

.Utility personnel,
S lacking in caring,
compassion.

To:the editor:

Whatever .happened. to
humanity, compassion and
caririg?-
In this woild today, with
so many problems that peo-
ple face, I often wonder. But
here is yet another example.
Dec. 2, 2008, was my hus-
band's first trip to the emer-
gency room at Indian River
Medical Center. To explain
the nightmares of going
back and forth for six weeks'
is another story in it- self.
After being misdiagnosed
a coupleof times. onJan.19,
2009, we received the worst
news any 48-year old man
could have to face: we were
told that he had cancer.
Thinking to our selves,
"OK, remove the tumor and
have some chemo and we'll
get through this bump in
the'road;" ,
e. However, that was not
our case at all. The doctors
explained that he was
' e. already in stage 4, and the
cancer was inoperable. It
was in his small intestines,
stomach, liver, pancreas
and his abdomen wall:was
covered. With chemothera-
py, he may have four
months to a year to live.
We were shocked. How do
the many doctors who saw
him over six weeks miss
S this? '.
Since, my husband has.
.spent many weeks in and
out of the hospital, we have
been trying to keep things
together since we have no
medical insurance.
I began trying to keep
things together, helping
him, taking care of our two
children, worrying about
insurance, money and keep-
ing up with the bills, (with
out having a nervous break-
down).
Through great friends and
family, a benefit trust
account was opened and
some donations started to
come in to help with our
financial needs.
It seemed that I over-
looked the water bill in Feb-
ruary. The first week of
S March I received a bill, and
that is when I realized I had
missed the payment.
The bill was due on March
17. On March 13, I set up the
online bill pay through the
trust account and sent off
the bill.
On March 19, at 9:30 a.m.,


VIEWPOINT

FRIDAY, APRIL 24, 2009 *HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM



Being safe on the water


I realized we had no water.'I
double-checked with River-
side .National Bank, and
received :the confirmation
number that the check was
mailed on the 13th.
I called the water compa-
ny and explained our situa-
tion,, and that the bill was
paid. But she didn't care,
and said it wasn't posted to
their account. She informed
me that I had to pay a recon-
nection fee of $25, and then
the water would be turned

I explained, again, that
my husband had just come
*out of the hospital after hav-
ing chemotherapy treat-
ments and he was feeling
very ill, and that I could not
leave him to go down there .
,She gave me a phone num-
berito call in the payment'
department, and told me to
call her back with a confir-
mation number and she
would put in'the work order.
SBy 10 a;m. I did so, and
she told me that she would
put on the order to recon-
nect ASAP because of med-
ical reasons. At 2 p.m., still
no water. I called'and was
told that the'order went in at
12:10 p.m., and they would
get to us when they could.
Again, explaining that
the need for water was
.urgent, slie told me that
there was no way to get in
touch with the guy out in.
the field, and when they get
there is when they get there.
What happened to turn-
ing it back on for medical
reasons ASAP? .
At 4:30 p.m., again I called
to say that we still did not
have water. I asked the
woman to tell me what note
. was put on my work order to
re-connect: she told me that
there was no note stating
the medical emergency\ obr
re-connect.
By 5 p.m. our Water was
finally turned on.
SWhat kind of people work
at the Indian River County
Utilities Department? Defi-
nitely not caring compas-
sionate people.

Editor's note: The Indian
River Urilities Conmpany twas
contacted and asked to
respond to this reader. After a
neo-uweek period, as is our
custom, no response from
utility' officials was received,
however, the cornpany did
relind the reconnection fee
and spoke with the Mrs.
Lorito regarding the issue.

The Indian River County Recreation Department held is fourth annual Community Health and Water Safety Day last
Saturday at the North County Aquatics Center.The event helps parents be aware about being safe in, on and around
the water. Recreation leader Lynn Gagnon, talks about one risk most people don't think about around water: snakes.,



Coping with chronic illness is challenging


C hoping with chronic
illness is a different
animal from dealing
with a medical crisis or
short-term problem.
Whether the condition
has to be monitored
frequency, such as dia-
betes, or flares up, such as
lupus, a diagnosis of a
condition that will not go
away i, difficult to accept.
I was diagnosed with
lupus,.an autoimmune
disease in 2002. shortly
after we moved to Florida. [
hadthe common reaction
ofboth shock and relief.
The shock was in know-
ing I had yet another illness.
The relief was in the
knowledge that many ofthe
symptoms I'd experienced
over the years were proba-
bly attributable to this one
thing that now had a name.
Instead ofha\ing a lot of
symptoms that meant
nothing, I had a recogniz3-
ble illness that could be
managed.
While shock and reliet are
common emotions when
one is faced with a diagno-
sis of illness, they are not
the only reactions. Some-
times people go into denial,
pretending that it isn't true.
In the short run, that may
help your brain and
emotions wrap themselves


around this new reality.
Howe\ er, it's important to
begin finding out what you
can about your condition
and what ou need to know,
to control and manage it.
if your primary care
physician is the one who
made the diagnosis, you
may want to request a
"referral to a specialist who
treats many people with'
your condition,
I see a rheumatologist':
who specializes in diseases
of the joints and connective
tissue. if \ou hate diabetes,
you may want to see an
endocrinologist and
perhaps a dietitian, to help
with food planning. It's ,
important that you put
together a team.
When you face a diagno-
sis of any illness, you feel a
loss oi control. With a
chronic illness, there are
Changes that will be there
for the rest ot your life. and
that can be hard to accept.
There may be actiMities you
can't do as well as you used
to or foods \ ou can no


longer eat.
With lupus, I had the
common symptom of
exhdaustion, often with no,
warning. I had to plan nmy
day to allow tor a lot of rest,
and I had to learn to sayno
to things I wanted to do
because I was just too tired.
I learned to plan my days to
do the essential things and
some of the things I wanted
to do. It was an adjustment.
I have tried.to find
'creative wa s to accommo-
date my limitations, such as
working from home and
taking frequent breaks. In
addition, lupus is a disease
that flares up without
warning. I am trying, with
Sopa and other exercises, to
take care of m\ sell within
the limitations I ha\e.
A big part of coping is the
support of people around
you. In addition to a '
medical team, it's help to
find out that you are not
alone. Support groups help
you meet and share
experiences with others
who understand what
you're going through
While it nma\ be helpful to
recognize that others may
have an even harder burden
than you do, you ma\ fiid it
depressing. if that's the
case, it's not the right,
solution for you.


Ifyou're not big on
groups and meetings, there
are often chat rooms online
that allow people to
communicate with each i
other from home. lust
remember that other group,
members are not experts,
and check with ypur doctor
before changing an\
medicantons or trying new
therapies.
If you find that you
remain depressed about
your illness, talk to your
doctor. Depression is not
uncommon in people-with
chronic illness and help is
available.
Please remember that
many chrome illnesses are
notyisible. I have a disabled ;
parking sticker to use xwhen
I am in great pain or
Exhausted. Yes, people
abuse the privilege, but you
can't always tell.
I get looks sometimes and
theymakeme feel worse.
I'm sure others with hidden
disabilities feel the same. Be
a little charitable and
grateful it's not you with the
disabili y.

Using wireless ruters to share resources


, or this week's column,
I am going to cover
Another aspect of
using a wireless router.
Let's say you need to
move a fie to another
Computer in the house, so
Someone else can put some
finishing touches on it
Perhaps it's a Word docu-
ment or maybe an Excel
spreadsheet.
..Without the computers
being networked together.
\we would have to save that
file to a floppy disk. CD or
thumb drive and walk the
disk over to the other -
computer to open it and
continue working on it.
What if, instead of having
'to walk the file across the
room, we could just save
the fileto our "my docu-
ments" folder, like we
usually do, and then just
reach through the network
with the other computer to
open it?
This ability to share
resources is one feature that
comes built in with Win-
dows and it is very easy to
set up and use.
Again, like we discussed
last week, it helps if all the
Machines are in the same
workgroup. Even if all the
machines are not in the
same workgroup, the r
resources can be accessed
acrossthe netw ork, but it
certainly helps.
Let's go with the example
of wanting to access the
"my documents" folders on
two different machines


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


connected tb the same
petwork.'
The first thing that has to
happen is the "my docu-
ments" folders have to be
shared; until the folders are
shared they are not visible
.on the network. You ma\ be
able to "see" the other
computer, but you:won'tbe
able to see that machine's
my documents folder.
These directions are for.
Windows XP machines, and
it's similar lor machines
Srunning\WindowsV ista. \
"Right click" the "my
documents" folder on the
Windows desktop and then
click properties. The
properties window will
open;r click on the "sharing"
tab.
In the network sharing
aridsecurity section click
the 'share this folder on the
network" checkbox and the
words "my documents"
should appear in the share
name field.
Now, if y\'Iu want other
computers on your network
to be able to change the
files in your my documents
folder, click the "allow
net \ork utl is to cha:ngi- my
files" check box.
If you don't, then others
will be able to open the


files, but they won't be able
to save any changes the\
make.
Once you share the folder
on \ our network, the next,
step is to go to the other
computer and "map" a
drive to that folder.
On the other machine,
right click the"my comput-
er" icon and click "map
network drive." This opens
the drive e-mapping dialogue
box and has two pull down
fields; the top field shows a
drive letter (such as Z) and
lets you choose what drive
letter you will use when you
connect to the my docu-
ments folder on the other
machine.
The next held is for the
'path" to the network
resource (the shared folder
on the other machine).
If you know the other
computers' machine name
(found by right clicking the
other machines my com-
puter icon, clicking proper-
ties then computer name),
you can type the path in'
directly, using this format:
"\\computername\my
documents."
Alternatively, you can.
click the "browse" button
and see all the computers in
Your workgroup. Click the
little "+" button next to the
other computers name to
see all the resources shared
on that machine and then
click the "my documents"
share.
Next, click OK, and a
window should open


showing the contents of
that folder.
From that point on, as.
long as the other computer
is powered up, you should
see a "drive" in your "my
computer" icon, with,
whatever drive letter you
selected with a little pipe
under it.
Now. when you want to
open afile on the other
machine from any pro-
gram, click file, then click
open and use the pull down
menu to scroll down to that
Newly created drive lener.
Same with saving: click
'save as" in any application,
click the pull down menu
and find that drive letter.
Now you can save files to
the other machine's "my
documents" folder just as .
easily.
Whew! That's a lot of
information, and it really
only scratches the surface;
You can get real fancy
with this requiring user
names and passwords and
such, but this column is
meant to be a primer, kind
of a basic introduction to
sharing and accessing
folders over the network.
The basics are there,
though they may be a little
different on your machines,
but this should be enough
information to get you.
