HOW WEIRD
IS THAT?!
SSEAN MCCARTHY


Spend any time surfing
the Web and you are
bound to find stories
that are just too bizarre to
be true.
Here's a sampling, edited
for length. And remember,
just because it's online
doesn't mean it's true!
Remember that teen
from last week with the 56
stars tattooed on her face?
From msnbc.com: Teen
reportedly admits she
asked for tattoos. Dad's
outrage over 56 stars led her
to give false account of
falling asleep.
From sfgate.com:'High'
wallabies blamed for
Aussie crop circles. Walla-
bies snacking in Tasmania's
legally-grown opium poppy
fields are getting "high as a
kite" and hopping around
in circles, trampling the
crops, a state official said.
From trueslant.com/jef-
fkoyen: Duped newscast
airs'Lost' scene as Flight
447's last moments. In their
rush to air exclusive photos
of Flight 447's destruction,
no one in this newsroom
stopped to ask the logical
questions, such as: how did
the camera survive and why
are the photos in wide-
screen format?
From
weirdasianews.com: 9,000-
year-old Chinese beer hits
stores. American brewing
company Dogfish turned to
history for their new brand
of beer. The ale comes from
a recipe last brewed in
China more than 9,000
years ago.
From chron.com: Police
say real $5 bills redone as
$100s. Some fake $100 bills
being passed in Amarillo
started as real money.
Police say various mer-
chants recently have been
duped with about $4,000
worth of the fake $100 bills.

wet and they're coming
to a beach near you.
Nighttime activity on
the beach has increased
as large female sea tur-
tles emerge from the
ocean to lay hundreds of
eggs in the sand along
the beaches.
Rick Herren, environ-
mental specialist for
Indian River County, said
the three species of sea
turtles that frequent the
area have been out in full
force this past week.
"I cover about half the
beach in the county,
about 11.5 miles of
beach," said Mr. Herren.
"I keep track of turtles
that come up on the
beach to nest and the
false crawls, which is
when the turtles come
up but don't nest. There
have been 525 logger-
head false crawls this
year," he said.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Three students from
Indian River County spent
last week at the Capitol
Building in Tallahassee,
sponsoring bills and debat-
ing issues during the 37th
annual Florida 4-H Legisla-
ture program.
Jenny and Shellie Davis,
along with Katherine
Kaltenbach, learned about
parliamentary procedures
followed by state legislators
and exercised their public
speaking skills on the floor
of the House of Representa-
tives.
Two of the 11 4-H clubs in
the county were represent-
ed by the girls, the Horse
Masters and the Swine
Masters 4-H Clubs.
Katherine, 16, is presi-
dent of the 4-H county
council, served as the head
reporter while in Tallahas-
see and also worked on
writing bills in a planning
committee.
"You can write about any-
thing really, usually about
the betterment of the state
and community," said
Katherine, who has been
involved in 4-H for the past
10 years and has been to

Ribbon cutting
set for July 11
By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
SEBASTIAN The cones
are gone and the lines are
painted along the roads
involved in the Main
Street/Indian River Drive
renovation project, which
involved adding an aesthet-
ically-pleasing landmark to
a popular boat ramp along
the river, while making it
safer for pedestrians and
boaters.
The project, which cost
nearly $2 million, is sched-
uled for a grand opening on
July 11 at 9 a.m. with a rib-
bon cutting and small pres-
entation from the Florida
Inland Navigation District
that provided some grant
money for the project.


Mark Brassard, field oper-
ations supervisor for H&D
Construction of Fort Pierce,
said the project has earned
compliments from many
passers-by.
"It's definitely a pretty
project and definitely user-
friendly now," said Mr. Bras-
sard.
"There are a lot of lush
landscaping plants and new
park benches to sit on and
the view of the river is about
50 percent better," he said.
Mr. Brassard said the
project was turned over to
the city on June 25 and all of
the facilities are open and
ready for use, including the
boat ramp and two bath-
rooms.
The project was about
three and a half weeks
ahead of schedule, Mr.
Brassard said.

legislature four times.
One bill proposed was
for a superhighway from
Jacksonville to Miami with
10 lanes and no speed
limit. That bill passed both
House and Senate and
went before a joint com-
mittee.
"It's really a unique expe-
rience. You meet people
interested in the same
things you are interested in
from everywhere," said
Katherine.
Local 4-H agent Adam
Cletzer said the entire

dees in preparing bills and

members.
"It's really that they're
learning to take a side, an
educated side, on an issue
and they find their voice,"
said Mr. Cletzer.
"There's not a lot of
places where kids can
learn that level of public
speaking except in 4-H,"
he said.
"Four-H does an awe-
some job of making it fun
for us," said Shellie, 17.
"Before 4-H, I didn't
want to do anything like
this, like Legislature, but
now it's pretty interesting
to me," she said.
Both Shellie and her sis-
ter, Jenny, 17, were mem-
bers of the House of Repre-
sentatives this year. Last
year, they were lobbyists.
"Most of the time the
floor was pretty quiet, but
then some people would
really get into the debate
and get aggravated if their


bill didn't pass," Jenny
said.
"It was a lot of fun to
learn so much and be able
to sit in the seats and learn
about the procedures," she
said.
"I've never sat in such
comfy chairs before.
They're (representatives)
really lucky," Shellie said
with a laugh.
The 4-H Foundation, a
private, nonprofit organi-
zation that raises funds
and public support for 4-H
programs, paid 50 percent
of the students' cost to
attend the program, Mr.
Cletzer said.

There are several reasons
for the false crawls, but
there are a lot of crawls this
year.
"There's not been much
rain recently and the sand
has been really dry," Mr.
Herren said.
"As you know, when you
dig in dry sand it caves in on
you, so turtles turn around
and go back and nest some-
where else," he said.
Other elements that lead
to false crawls include
beach furniture left on the
beach and too many people
around, he added.
Kipp Frohlich, section
leader for imperiled species
management section for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
said no official numbers on
sea turtle nests are going to
be released until the end of
the nesting season.
Mr. Herren's preliminary
figures show four green tur-
tle nests and 29 leatherback
nests so far this season in
his section of beach. Both
species of turtle are on the
endangered list.
"One of the primary
trends that we have been
seeing is a downward trend
in loggerhead turtles nest-


ing, which is our primary
turtle," said Mr. Frohlich.
"We don't have a cause or
reason for that, but we are
very interested and con-
cerned to see if that changes
this year, but it's still too
early to tell," he said.
Numbers of loggerhead
nests, which are the turtles
most often seen along Indi-
an River County beaches,
have taken a jump in the
past week, Mr. Herren said.
"In one week, logger-
heads have jumped from
315 nests to 543 nests as of
June 25," said Mr. Herren.
Each turtle will lay
between 75 and 120 eggs in
a nest and some turtles will
lay up to eight nests.
"Some people don't real-
ize that the number of nests
do not mean the number of
turtles because turtles lay
more than one nest," said
Mr. Herren.
The number of nests
recorded are not the
amount of nests marked on
the beaches, which is one of
the largest misconceptions
the public has about sea
turtle nests, he said.
"We keep track of about
15 percent of the nests
marked for research," Mr.
Herren said.
"The beach would not be
friendly for humans or tur-
tles if we marked the 1,500
nests per year," Mr. Herren


said.
The hatchlings emerging
from their nests will peak in
August, he said.
Some hatchlings from the
earliest nests are emerging
already and though some
people may want to watch
the hatchlings, it can be
dangerous for the small tur-
tles, experts say.
They advise nighttime
beach visitors to not bother
the small turtles as they
make their way to the
ocean.
"You can guide a hatch-
ling sea turtle around with
just a flashlight, so I don't
recommend any lights on
the beach," Mr. Herren said.
"They are looking for the
brightest horizon and
Approximately 60 to 100
baby sea turtles are found
dead and are reported each
year in the county, most
because they have been
misdirected by other light
sources.
Campfires on the beach
are one other cause of death
for sea turtles, a very sad
end, Mr. Herren said.

Writing brings healing

for Sebastian woman


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
SEBASTIAN Raising a
child with a mental illness
into adulthood is not easy
by any stretch of the imagi-
nation, but families don't
have to feel alone anymore.
Claudia and Dick
McClaine of Sebastian have
been married for 50 years
and have seen each other
through many rough sea-
sons, including raising and
losing a son diagnosed with
schizophrenia.
Mrs. McClaine said her
son, who wasn't diagnosed
until his late teens, would go
through high points and low
points in his mental stabili-
ty, as he turned to drugs and
alcohol in rebellion.
Though he often hurt
their family in the process,
Mrs. McClaine's love for her
son never died.
She kept a journal of her
experiences and had it pub-
lished last November.
Though six years ago her
son took his own life, Mrs.
McClain said she sees her
story as encouraging to
other families of the mental-
ly ill, because it means no
one is alone in their strug-
gles.
"I wrote the book to share
my (and my family's) experi-
ence of living with our son's
illness and watching the
horrors he went through,"
she said.
"I think the process of

intendent Henry La Cava
said he was very pleased

writing relieved a lot of anxi-
ety, tears and heartbreak for
me," said Mrs. McClaine.
During the early stages of
his illness, doctors did not
have to look far beyond his
substance abuse issues to
see the real problem, Mrs.
McClaine said.
According to the National
Alliance on Mental Illness
Web site, 50 to 60 percent of
individuals with severe
mental disorders are also
affected by substance abuse,
compared with 10 percent
of the general population.
Also, young people
between 15 and 24 years old
are the age group most likely
to experience a major
depressive episode.
Mrs. McClaine said an
important partner in her
family's life while living with
her son's condition was the
Indian River County Chap-
ter of the NAMI.
NAMI is the largest grass-
roots organization dedicat-
ed to improving the lives of
people living with serious
mental illness and their
families.
"I want to emphatically
encourage everyone, family,
friends and the ill person to
seek out NAMI, where we
got the most help in the later
stages of his illness," said
Mrs. McClaine.
NAMI provided the
McClaines with information
about housing, treatment,
crisis intervention and med-
ication education.


"This is the highest per-
centage of schools ever to
achieve 'A' and 'B' status,"
he said.
The large percentage of
schools with high grades
allowed the district to earn
an excellent overall score.
"We are very excited to
have maintained an 'A' for
the second year in a row,"
Mr. La Cava said.

When the market was

but after going back and
forth, trying to fulfill coun-

"There was some last

decided we needed

cerns) and they asked for a
$1.7 million bond or letter

to letting it expire, means
that the bank provides the
money put up by the devel-
oper to the county so the
county can make the
changes necessary to the
property in a public bid
process.
Also stipulated in his
contract with the county
was that the lots needed to
be filled in two years. If not,
the county could take the
money and pay someone
else to bulldoze the trees
and fill the lots.
If that were to happen,
said Mr. Foster, a commer-
cial builder interested in
building models and specs
on the property would no
longer be interested.
"If the letter of credit is
called and we have to
remove the trees and fill
the lots, it will develop into
a sand dust bowl, and make
it much more difficult to
sell," said Mr. Foster.
Commissioners agreed
and voted unanimously
last Tuesday to allow Mr.
Foster's letter of credit to
expire and rescinded the
order to fill the lots.


Hardy Oak and you'renot
blocking the road now," said
the mayor.
Mr. Minner said the proj-
ect did undergo some
change orders that affected
the budget of the project,
but he could not give an
exact amount as to increas-
es in financial obligations at
press time.


"Mr. Fosters showed that
the land percolated well,
and was very sandy, so it
was not a problem," said
Will Collins, county attor-
ney.
Letting the letter of credit
expire allowed Mr. Foster to
continue working on the
property, but did not
require him to take down
all of the vegetation at one
time, Mr. Collins said.
"I think it was reason-
able," he said.
Commissioners also
asked Mr. Foster to amend
his contracts with his buy-
ers so the same rules about
filling would apply to them.
In other words, buyers
would not be able to de-
forest the property, either.
"I'd hate to see the prop-
erty denuded and I see no
reason to go in there and
fill the lots if they are not
going to develop the lots,"
said Chairman Wesley
Davis.
"We want to save the
trees as long as possible,"
he said.
Now, when builders
come onto the property,
they will only take down as
many trees as necessary to
build homes, leaving the
rest of the area green and
flourishing instead of dry
and dusty.
"This means I'm gonna
live for another day," said
Mr. Foster.
"It would have been a
death sentence, financial
Armageddon, for me if the
letter of credit had been
called," he said.

TREASURE COAST -The Treasure
Coast Parrot Head Club raised
$12,811 for the American Cancer
Society and won seven awards for
participating in the 2009 Relay for
Life event in May at Tradition Field
in Port St. Lucie, including first place
for best overall team.
The awards were presented in June
during the Relay for Life apprecia-
tion night at the stadium, which was
followed by a St. Lucie Mets baseball
game.
This year marked the largest
fundraising in the club's history and
the club's third year participating in
Relay for Life.
The club chose "Peter Pan" as its
theme in the event, titled the "St.
Lucie Children's Storybook Relay."
All teams participating in this
event raised a total of more than
$104,000 for the American Cancer


Society.
The club also won first place for
best team costume, best team ban-
ner and best overall campsite, sec-
ond place for funniest campsite,
third place for best decorations and
best mission statement.
All awards were judged by cancer
survivors and members of other
teams participating in the event.
One of the ways the club raised
money for the charity was to sell
parrot-ice, a Parrot Head version of
snow cones. Children of club mem-
bers, who are called "keets," an
abbreviated of parakeets, manned
the concession stand during the
fundraising event.

The club is a Florida nonprofit cor-
poration with 188 members from
Melbourne to Jupiter.

A response: Nobody's perfect

I am responding to a rant titled "Keep Criminals in Jail" in
the Junel9 Hometown News.
This rant was obviously written by someone who has
absolutely no contact with anyone with a felony record.
Also, this person is someone who doesn't believe in second
chances.
Not a single person on the face of this earth is perfect. I
am sure this person has made mistakes and has been grant-
ed a second chance.
I am a convicted felon who spent more than five years in
jail for a mistake that I made. When I was released and
returned home, I was amazed at how difficult it would be to
enter society and move on with my life. I would say that
about 95 percent of the companies that I applied for
employment with, all had policies that wouldn't allow them
to hire a convicted felon.
Would I agree that there are people who are in prison who
don't want to change their lifestyles? Yes! However, I know
many, many more who want to change, but because they
are not permitted a second chance, they return to what they
know to survive. It is not the criminals, it is society that
holds them back.
I have written countless letters to Congress about this
issue. It is difficult not to feel that in our own country, felons
are not looked at equally. We have done the time for our
crimes, but even once out, we still, in some way, have to
serve time for something we want to put in the past.
Fortunately, for myself, I had a good support system and
a friend who offered to help. I have been home for two years
now and I currently own two businesses. There is a way out,
but for most, it is extremely difficult.
I used to feel the same way as the writer of that article
until I went into the system myself. Now when I drive by a
jail or prison, I automatically think about each person in
there and what they are currently going through and what it
will be like for them when released.
So please don't be quick to judge. Even other individuals
could have committed the crime spoken of in that rant, as
there is always a first time.

Regarding felons

Years ago, lots of people died just to vote. Now they are
letting felons vote. Why can't felons work? Give them a
chance.

A laughing matter

It makes us laugh when public school teachers brag about
pupil performance and how things are improving in our
classrooms.
Compared with other nations around the globe, the U.S.
comes in almost last in the number of hours our children
spend in the classroom. It shows, because they also score
almost last in math, science and reading.

Keep your promises

When Barack Obama was candidate Obama, he promised
tax cuts for all but the very rich, but it turns out that there are
not enough "very rich" so the promise cannot be kept.
Quietly, the administration, through the congressional
budget office, has let it be known that Social Security recipi-
ents will not get a cost-of-living increase in 2010, that the
Social Security system is in much worse shape than previ-
ously thought, and that as Part B costs spiral upward, the
only option will be to significantly increase in premiums.

Raising rates is a big mistake

I just heard that Florida Power & Light wants another rate
increase. I want to say that I very seldom, if ever, write any-
body about subjects such as this.
We already keep our electricity at a bare minimum in order
to keep our bill down. What's next, shutting off the water
heater? People are barely able to stay in their homes as it is.
As more people leave Florida to go elsewhere because they
are losing their homes (your rate increase will put many peo-
ple over the edge) you will have fewer customers and your
revenue will ultimately go down.
Greed never gets us anywhere. It's the people who give that

The skinny on skin cancer


t's summer in Florida
and the UV index is high.

Now is the time to
remember the sunscreen
and protect yourself against
all forms of skin cancer,
including melanoma, the
most serious.
Here is some information
on the most common types
of skin cancers and what to
look for. The information
comes from the American
Academy of Dermatology.
Actinic keratoses are pre-
cancerous lesions caused
by long-term exposure to
sunlight. They are most
commonly found on the
face, lips, ears, neck, scalp,
forearms and hands, the
areas most exposed to
sunlight. Keratoses are
often scaly, rough and
discolored.
Practice self-examination
and have someone else
check areas, such as your
scalp, that are hard to see.
If untreated, keratoses
can progress to more
serious types of skin cancer,
so any suspicious growth
should be looked at by a
dermatologist.
Basal cell carcinoma is
the most common type of
skin cancer and appears
frequently on the head,
neck and hands, and other
body parts as small, fleshy
bumps or nodules or red
patches. It may take years
for one to grow and if


untreated, it may begin to
bleed, crust over, heal and
begin to grow again. They
can extend below the skin
to nerves and bone and
cause local damage. Any
growths will be removed
and biopsied and treatment
will depend on a variety of
factors.
Squamous cell carcinoma
is the next most common
form of skin cancer. It is
typically found on the rim
of the ear, the face, lips and
mouth. It may also appear
as a bump or red, scaly
patch.
SCC can develop into
large masses and become
invasive and spread to
other parts of the body. It is
important to get early
treatment, when the cure
rate is 95 percent. Most
treatment options are in-
office procedures with a
local anesthesia, which is
minor, compared to the
disfigurement that can
result from ignoring it.
Malignant melanoma is
the most deadly form of
skin cancer. Every year, an
estimated 7,700 people die
from it. In the U.S., the
incidence of people


developing melanoma has
doubled in the past 30
years.
The American Academy
of Dermatology reports the
death rate is declining,
because people are seeking
treatment at an earlier
stage, although the inci-
dence of the disease
continues to rise, especially
in young adults and the
elderly.
Melanoma may appear
suddenly in or near a mole
or other dark spot. Any
changes in moles should be
examined by a dermatolo-
gist. See a dermatologist
immediately if you have a
growth that meets the
ABCD scale:
Asymmetrical: one side
doesn't match the other in
size, shape, color or
thickness.
Border irregularity: the
edges are ragged, scalloped
or poorly defined.
Color: the pigmentation
is not uniform and different
shades are present.
Diameter: most
melanomas are usually
greater then 6 mm, which is
the size of a pencil eraser,
but they can be smaller in
the early stages. That's why
any mole that is different
from the others or changes
should be examined, even if
it is small.
Of course, prevention is
the best plan. Use a broad-
spectrum sunscreen of at


least SPF 15, one that
protects against UVA and
UVB rays. Re-apply it often
and use it on your lips, ears
and other exposed areas,
even on cloudy days.
Avoid tanning salons and
tanning beds. There is no
safe way to tan, except with
artificial tanning products.
If you're going to be out
in the sun, wear a hat and
sunglasses, preferably the
wrap-around type that
protect the side of your
face, as well. Pretend you're
a movie star; they wear
sunglasses all the time.

Don't panic if your computer crashes


computers can get
overwhelmed from
time to time.
I'm not saying that
computers can be over-
whelming, they can, but
that's not what this week's
column is about.
What I'm referring to are
the times when, for no
apparent reason, the
computer just stops
functioning and you can't
seem to do anything.
What most people don't
realize is just how much
stuff is going on in the
background at any given
time.
Every part of the comput-
er, from the keyboard to the
mouse to the monitor, has a
little program running in
the background that is in
charge of how that particu-
lar part functions. And they
all have to run together
harmoniously.
I'm not talking about just
a few little programs or
drivers. There are literally
thousands of things going
on in the background at any
given second and some-
times the operating system
can get overwhelmed.
Frankly, I'm surprised
computers even run at all
without crashing after five
minutes of up time.
I always have to smile
whenever I hear anyone
say, "I wasn't even doing


Al


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


anything and it just locked
up."
Sure, you weren't doing
anything, but the computer
is still as busy as a one-
armed paperhanger.
Consider this: even if you
are just sitting there, hands
completely off the mouse
and keyboard, the comput-
er is constantly (and I do
mean constantly) looking at
the keyboard and mouse
for any change. It's also re-
painting whatever's on the
screen 60 to 70 times a
second, checking to see if
it's time to start the screen
saver, listening to network
or modem connections for
incoming calls and more.
So even if you are not
doing anything, the
computer is still very busy
just waiting for you to do
something. And that's not
even considering the
hundreds of other things it
has to do just to keep the
desktop alive and stable.
That's why your computer
can sometimes become
overwhelmed and freeze
up.
So what do you do about


it when it happens? Let's go
through a common sce-
nario.
Let's say you are surfing
the Internet and you click a
link, the page loads and you
start reading. You get to the
bottom of the page and go
to click somewhere else,
but the pointer is just an
hourglass and you can't
click anything. Or, maybe
the pointer looks fine (no
hour glass) but still, nothing
happens when you click.
What do you do then?
First, don't panic.
It usually doesn't mean
the computer is messed up.
It usually means that it got
bogged down somewhere
and needs a "little nudge"
to get it back on track.
I usually try to get the
computer's attention by
trying a couple of different
keyboard commands. I'll
hit the escape key (usually
at the top left-hand side of
the keyboard) to divert the
machine's attention from
whatever it's stuck on.
Sometimes this all it takes
and sometimes not. If the
escape key doesn't change
anything I'll try the old
standard: CTRL +ALT + DEL
(aka the "three finger
salute") and see if I can
access the task manager.
But what if that doesn't
work?
Another thing to try


would be to reboot the
machine. Just press and
hold the power button until
the computer shuts down,
wait 10 to 20 seconds and
turn it back on. After the
machine restarts, things
should be back to normal
and you should have
control of your mouse
again.
I know powering off the
computer is not the
"proper" way to shut it
down but sometimes it's the
only way. If you can't click
anything, how are you
going to initiate a proper
shutdown?
Occasional lock ups and
other similar issues have
given Windows a bad name,
but I take it with a grain of
salt. Knowing there are so
many other things going on
in the background makes it
easier to understand why
your computer occasionally
freezes.
Frankly, the same thing
happens from time to time
with Macs, too. I've seen it
with my own eyes.
The issue is knowing
what to do when the
occasional lock up hap-
pens.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY-
An Indian River County
teacher said she's excited
about a program that will give
students a chance to experi-
ence science outside a text-
book.
Leah Blythe, a teacher at
Indian River Charter School in
Vero Beach, is one of several
teachers participating in a
program at Indian River State
College that will help them
prepare students to conduct
scientific research.
The teachers are studying
the scientific process to deter-
mine what caused dolphin
deaths.
The program is a joint ven-
ture between Indian River
State College, the Torrey Pines
Institute for Molecular Stud-
ies, Midwest Research Insti-
tute, USDA Horticultural
Research Laboratory, Syngen-
ta Ocean Research and Con-
servation Association, Tropi-
cana Products, the St. Lucie
County and area schools.
One especially good point
of the program, she said, is
that it involves all aspects of
science.
Students will find that "all
the science they learned over
the years can be applied in
real life," Ms. Blythe said.
The program will take "stu-
dents with natural abilities in
science and pull them into it,"
Ms. Blythe said.
It's also good for teachers

teachers from Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties in a series of experiments they
will conduct with their own high school students next semester.

will make science more enjoy-
able.
"It's much more fun than
reading science," she said.
The goal of the program at
Fort Pierce-based IRSC is to
entice students to become
scientists by going to college.
And it's in line with efforts to
attract biomedical research
companies to the Treasure
Coast.
Robin Willoughby, an assis-
tant professor of biological
science at IRSC, said the sci-
entific research can be used in
real-life situations.
Dr. Willoughby said during
the past several decades, there

a reward.


instances of large numbers of
dolphins dying in the area at
the same time.
One part of possible
research into dolphin deaths
could involve determining if
waters contain dangerous
compounds.
Marc Giulianotti, director of
chemical operations at Torrey
Pines, which is based in Port
St. Lucie, showed the teachers
methods of identifying com-
pounds in samples of waters.
He said he hopes the proj-
ect will help teachers show
students that science is more
than reading a book.
"If we can expose them to
what we're doing when they
are in high school, hopefully,
that will inspire them to go to
college," he said.
Edwin R. Massey, president
of IRSC, said inspiring local
students is crucial to further


development of the area for
biomedical research.
"Developing interest in
biotechnology and under-
standing of the scientific
process plays an important
part in the development of a
skilled workforce for the
nationally recognized
biotechnology firms that have
located in our region, and will
help to attract additional
companies and high-paying
jobs," he said in a press
release.
Other scientists worked
with teachers on analyzing
DNA and testing for toxicity in
live cells. The teachers will
incorporate the research
methods into their classes, Dr.
Willoughby said.
The plan calls for the stu-
dents to spend time at IRSC
and work as teams to analyze
water samples.


Take this advice; it's good advice. Right now is the time to
give and help. If anything, we should have rate decreases
right now. You can always raise them later when the economy
gets better. I know FPL is not starving right now, but many
Floridians are!

Can anyone claim the U.S. education sys-
tem is doing its job in an increasingly world-
wide competitive economy?
Certainly not if we review the study con-
ducted by the National Endowment for the
Humanities, which indicates that more than
a third of our college students could not
identify the U.S. Constitution as establish-
ing the division of powers in our govern-
ment, and more than 40 percent place the
American CivilWar in the correct century.
Editor's note: A visit to the NEH Web site
(www.neh.gov) did not turn up any informa-

the ranter could provide more detailed infor-

entirety.

Intelligence levels

I would like to advise that since the Save
the Chimps sanctuary was established in
St. Lucie County, the county's intelligence
level has gone up.

Backward FCAT system

This is about the FCAT scores. The
schools with the highest average of chil-
dren living under the poverty level have
the lowest scores. The state gives money
to schools that get higher scores on the
FCATs, instead of the schools that get
lower schools.
How can we help these children? There
are a lot of children whose parents don't
speak English or are from a broken home.
They need more help. This is a backwards
system.

Seeing

past helps

prepare

for future
Like many people who
live in Florida, I came
from someplace else.
And like some transplants, I
still tend to think of that
elsewhere, in my case New
England, as "home."
Even though I've lived in
this state almost half my
life, I think the reason we
"naturalized" Floridians
retain strong ties to our
previous home states is
because it is where we grew
up.
Novelist Thomas Wolfe
once wrote, "You can't go
home again," but I think
there is an unbreakable
bond to one's original
home and friendships that
are more strongly forged in
our youth than in our latter
years.
So, seven weeks before
my 60th birthday, I decided
to go home.
I needed to see the places
and people who helped
form the early fabric of my
life. I needed to revisit my
childhood haunts and
friends. I needed to go back
more than half a century in
time.
I wanted one look back at
where my conscious life
began, in an effort to better
understand where I am still
headed in act III of my life.
The husband I married
18 months ago accompa-
nied me back to my
childhood roots. I wanted
him to see and know how I
came to be "me."
I was born in NewYork
City and lived there until
age 4, at which time my
family moved to a tiny
Massachusetts town on the
New Hampshire border.
Winchendon, Mass.,
incorporated in 1764, was
(and still is) known as "Toy
Town" because in the late
1800s and early 1900s, there
were more toy manufactur-
ers there than anywhere
else in the country.
For a 4-year-old with a 2-
year-old sister, the cultural
shock of moving from
Manhattan to a bucolic
town of 6,000 residents was
an easy transition. What
awareness did we have of
the Empire State Building
or Macy's and Gimbels?

Local


blues


musician


releases


new CD

By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
SEBASTIAN It's a
musical genre with roots
in West Africa that first
emerged here following
Abraham Lincoln's
Emancipation Proclama-
tion.
"The blues" is a unique
musical style featuring
specific chord and note
progressions, as well as
various regional influ-
ences.
Though it's a product of
African-American culture
and experience, whites,
too, have fallen under its
magical spell, because
the blues is about life in
all its gore and glory.
Sebastian resident
Ernie Southern is a well-
known Delta blues spe-
cialist who writes his own
music and plays a tradi-
tional National Reso-
Phonics resonator guitar.
He released a new CD
on June 1 that is already
creating a buzz within
the blues community.
"Every Day Is a Fight" is
an 11-track compilation
of originally-composed
songs that Mr. Southern
describes as "progres-
sive" Delta blues.
"I'm not ignoring what
I know and love, but I'm
also trying to grow the


blues," he said.
Mr. Southern has a
local following of fans
who can't get enough of
his blues style, which
originated in the Missis-
sippi Delta region.
Delta blues music usu-
ally includes harmonicas
and slide guitar, in which
the guitar is fretted using
a bottle neck or knife.
Doing so produces
chords that nearly whine.
With his band, the
"Deltaholics," Mr. South-
ern has added percussion
and, for the new CD,
addressed topical sub-
jects in examination of a
worrisome economy.
"It's all personal and it's
from things in my life. I
guess it's timely now.
"And when I play, peo-
ple say you've touched
me, and that's very
rewarding," Mr. Southern
said.
The title cut explores
the difficulties of just try-
ing to get through the
day, while "I Wanna Kill
Somebody" figuratively
expresses the frustrations
we are all subject to dur-
ing the course of a day.
"The blues is supposed


to be about the truth, but
it's also a catharsis to get
you over those blues. It's
not about crying in your
beer, it's about getting
past what you are feeling
and it's why, when people
listen to the blues, they
usually get up and dance
whether they're 8 or 80,"
Mr. Southern said.
Finding "the blues" was
not Mr. Southern's first
musical stop. The former
Long Island, N.Y. resident
got started musically
singing with a doo-wop
group called Nick & the
Nacks, which became
well-known in that area
and opened for artists
such as Jay and the Amer-
icans and Little Anthony
and the Imperials.
A recording contract
deal was interrupted by
the Vietnam War and Mr.
Southern entered the
Navy, where he served on
the USS Enterprise in
photo intelligence.
While at sea, he studied
classic blues and taught
himself to play Delta-
style guitar. Later, he
enrolled in a California
music school.
For years Mr. Southern

perfected his musical
technique and in 1979, he
moved to Fort Lauderdale
where he worked with
bands for almost 20 years
before going solo.
By this time, he had
exchanged his bass guitar
for the steel-string
National and returned to
his beloved Delta blues.
"I've been in jazz and
rock bands and studied
all kinds of music. Blues
is the feeling and a bunch
of different feelings. This
CD is a new direction for
Delta blues.
"It's song-oriented
rather than a lot of
(instrumental) solos. I'll
probably get some flack
from (blues) purists but
I'm doing what I wanted
to do," he said.
Although the CD has
been out less than a
month, it is already get-
ting considerable air play
as far away as California
and Europe.
"We've been busy play-
ing up and down the
coast of Florida and we've
got a gig coming up on

Couponing's best-kept


W en I teach coupon
classes, one of the
audience's favorite
lessons are what I call the
best-kept secrets of
couponing. These are the
secrets that help push your
savings potential to the
maximum.
Today I'll share with you
one of the best and most
exciting ways to get gro-
ceries and other products
for free. (And isn't that what
we all want? Who doesn't


love free stuff?)
Super-couponing secret:
coupons for one free item.
You may be surprised
how many coupons for free
products exist.
You can regularly find
coupons for free items in
newspaper inserts, on the
Internet or even in the
stores you regularly shop.
These are some of the
easiest and most fun
coupons to use.

With the Indian River to
the west and the Atlantic
Ocean to the east, Brevard
County's beachside com-
munities offer a plethora
of enjoyable activities for
visitors and residents alike.
So, instead of traveling
elsewhere this summer,
consider a visit to the
Space Coast, while spend-
ing less cash and gaining a
new appreciation for Bre-
vard's beloved beaches.
While Melbourne Beach
is known for its small-town
feel and casual atmos-
phere, it is also the coun-
ty's oldest beachside com-
munity, established in
1883, according to the
town of Melbourne Beach's
Web site, www.mel-
bournebeachfl.org.
In 1921, the original Mel-
bourne Causeway was
built, connecting Mel-
bourne Beach to the main-
land via what is now

known as Indialantic.
Some of the town's earli-
est buildings (or replicas of
the originals), such as the
Ryckman House, the Mel-
bourne Beach Post Office
and the town's community
chapel, still stand today.
For a deeper look into the
town's history, stop in the
long-standing Old Town
Hall History Center at 2373
Oak Street, which is open
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3
p.m.
If fishing is your forte,
Melbourne Beach is home
to some of the county's
most popular fishing
spots, both along the
beach and in the Indian
River Lagoon.
Rent a kayak, charter a
boat or throw out a line
from the Melbourne Beach
Pier.
Sebastian Inlet State
Park, at the south end of
A1A, doubles as a popular
fishing area, as well as a
recognized surfing spot for
locals.
If you're looking to get
away without technically
leaving the county, pack
up the kids and the camp-
ing gear and spend a few
nights under the star-filled
sky at Long Point Park near
the Indian River County
line.
Both tents and RVs are
permitted, and many
campsites back the Indian
River Lagoon.
Heading north from Mel-
bourne Beach, there are a
variety of other ways to
stay active.
Paradise and Boardwalk
beaches in Indialantic are
well-known hot spots,
while the newly renovated
Hightower Beach Park in
Satellite Beach is sched-
uled to be completed by
late summer.
Sea turtle nesting season
in Brevard began June 1
and guided hatchling tours
are a must-see.
For information, visit the
Sea Turtle Preservation
SocietyWeb site, www.sea-
turtlespacecoast.org.
From jet skiing and boat-
ing to wakeboarding and
canoeing, the Space Coast
is also known for its water
sports. But some residents,
who have lived here all
their lives, rarely take
advantage of their loca-
tion.
"I really don't get out
there and experience all
that this area has available
as much as I'd like to," said
Tanya Lawson, a Satellite
Beach resident and mother
of two college students.

"My husband bought me a

and our plan is to take it

mer. We really are lucky to
live in such a beautiful
place."
If the cost is keeping you
away, owning one of these
watercrafts is not a
requirement. There are
dozens of vendors from
Melbourne Beach north to
Cape Canaveral that rent
by the hour or by the day.
When the sun gets too
hot, another option is to
bring the family out for a
day of shopping along
Indialantic's Fifth Avenue,


which is home to a variety
of surf shops, beauty
salons, restaurants and
home d6cor stores.
To maintain your exercise
level, trade walking for
bicycling.
Covering nearly 27 acres
of property, Gleason Park
in Indian Harbour Beach
features a bike path, exer-
cise trail, children's play-
ground and public pool.
Nearby, the city of Satel-
lite Beach continues to
work toward its goal of cre-
ating an entirely walkable
community with increased
sidewalks and widened
streets.
"There is so much that
our community offers; we
want people to be able to
enjoy it on foot, while still


remaining safe," said Satel-

Brimer.

From page B1
A large field across the
street with buttercups and
wild irises; a brook to catch
minnows and salamanders
and a hill to sled down in
the winter was the best
playground any kid could
want.
For my parents, the
transition must have been
nearly cataclysmic; a couple
of New York City Jews now
living in a town where the
most imposing structure
was St. Mary's Catholic
Church.
We were not in Kansas
anymore, to borrow from
Dorothy in Oz.
But, despite the some-
what screwy demographic
our background presented
to those native Yankees,
living there became, as my
93-year-old mother still
says, "the best and happiest
years of our lives."
Growing up inWinchen-
don during the 1950s and
'60s was akin to the old TV
show "Mayberry" starring
Andy Griffith. I lived in the
New England version of
Mayberry and we had our
own versions of Sheriff
Andy Taylor and Deputy
Barney Fife.
Winchendon was safe
back then. Maybe it still is,
located so far from urban
areas.

rode our bikes for miles,
sometimes venturing across
the state line into New
Hampshire.
We set off on adventures
and were gone all day. Our
parents never worried and
it's not because they were
lax or unfit, it was just that
safe a time and place.
We'd venture into the
woods to find old cellar
holes, ancient family
cemeteries and even
abandoned old homes.
We called it "house
haunting" and sometimes
we spooked ourselves into
making a speedy getaway
while we laughed hysteri-
cally.
Other times, we'd look for
elusive lady's slipper flowers
or trillium, which we'd pick
to bring to our mothers.
After school, we'd often
ride up to the dairy farm
and help them milk the
cows.
On this visit, the two
chums reunited; one almost
60, the other almost 63.
Once again, we visited that
dairy farm. The farmers
who welcomed us in our
youth were still there and,
wonder of wonders,
remembered us and our
parents.
The cows are gone, sold a
few seasons ago when it
became too much for three
brothers in their 70s to milk
them twice a day, 365 days a
year.
But there is a dairy bar at
the farm that sells unbeliev-

Patricia M. Patten endowment.
There is no admission charge
to view this exhibit or any of
the museum's other
summer/fall exhibitions. The
exhibit chronicles the history
of art quilts from 1980 to the
present in a movement which
brought the quilts from the
bed to the wall. Sixty-four
quilts in the collection reflect
the change from traditional
repeated block designs to
more free-spirited, edgy art
forms. The Vero Beach

ably delicious homemade
ice cream in flavors you've
never heard of and we
enjoyed a cone as we
reminisced.
With each lick of that
luscious cone, I wondered
when the huge white barn,
now so old and decrepit,
might one day just collapse.
My house has changed.
Subsequent owners made
hideous architectural
"improvements" which, to
my eyes, are an assault on
an elegant pre-Civil War
structure. I can barely stand
to look at it; stately columns
removed for incongruous
brick stanchions.
The gorgeous formal
flower gardens are gone. But
my pet parakeet Mickey,
who died in May 1962, is
still buried there, unbe-
knownst to the house's
present owners.
But I remember it all; the
way it was then.
I have not lived in that
town since the summer of
1966. But I remember those
magical years and all those
unforgettable town charac-
ters in what was, as I now
tell my children and
grandchildren, "the tail end
of the olden days."
The town and I have
changed. Those I once knew
there are mostly gone or in
their graves. There has been
a long passage of time.
But memories are durable
and retrievable things. They
all return when we go
home.

Great memories of past July Fourth, and some tasty t


Hello smart shoppers. I
have some news I must share
with you. Iam recuperating
from major surgery. Right
now I am extremely weak.
Please bear with me as past
columns will be repeated
until I can move on.
his week I remem-
bered a July Fourth we
celebrated in the early
'70s when we lived in
Somers, Conn. Men were
wearing flowered shirts and
flowered pants, very
Hawaiian.
We were invited to my
cousin's for a big celebra-
tion. I decided we all
needed something special
to wear. After everyone
agreed to flowered pants, I
got busy sewing endlessly.
We arrived at the party,
the six of us, wearing royal
blue pants adorned with
large white tropical flowers,
white T-shirts and puca
shell necklaces. Everyone
flipped when they saw us. I


ROMANCING
THE STOVE .
with the
Grammy Guru
ARLENE BORG .

remember my dad saying,
"This guy's gotta' love you to
wear pants like that."
Those outfits were
nothing but fun. On the way
home from the party, we
stopped at a trailer-style
diner. Bill dropped me off,
along with my daughter
Kimberly, 10, Guy, 5-1/2,
and Steve, 3-1/2. When we
entered the restaurant, I
noticed a young man facing
the door talking to and
trying to impress two young
girls sitting opposite him.
He glanced up and then did
a double take but when my
husband and my son Billy,
12-1/2 entered wearing the
same outfits. It really blew
his pitch.


"I can't stand this, you've
gotta turn around and look
at this," he yelled. The older
kids pretended embarrass-
ment, but when I suggested
we wear our outfits to go to
the mall, no one objected.
We would walk hand-in-
hand-in-hand, spanning the
walkway, almost skipping
and swinging our arms as
heads would turn and
people would laugh and
each kid felt so very special.
Try something just for
fun. It will lift your spirits
and the spirits of everyone
else around you.

FINGER LICKIN'S
When my husband came
home from a business trip
with this recipe, a special in
a luncheonette he had
visited, he made it for
dinner. The kids thought
this dinner was fun. They
could even make it them-


Purchase a bottom or top
round roast and ask the
butcher to trim the fat and
make it into cubed steaks.
Cubed steaks
Meat tenderizer, un-
seasoned
Sliced onions
Mayonnaise, regular,
low-fat or fat-free
Sliced tomatoes
Hot sauce
Steak or hotdog rolls

Sprinkle steaks with
tenderizer. Press into meat
and allow to sit for 10
minutes. Slice meat into
strips 1/2-inch wide and 2-
inches long.
Saute onions in cooking
spray or canola oil; set
aside. Film skillet with
canola oil; saute steaks over
high heat, to desired
doneness.
Serve on rolls spread with
mayo and topped with fried
onions and tomatoes.
Shake on some hot sauce.


SOUTHERN CAVIAR
(NIB)
Recipe by Margo Kelly and
daughter Nicole Cheyne
One 14 to 15-1/2 ounce
cans each of shoe peg
corn, black eyed peas and
black beans (all drained
and rinsed)
1 can Rotel brand diced
tomatoes and green chiles
3 Roma tomatoes,
chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
(orange or yellow)
6 green onions (scallions),
chopped
8 ounces bottled zesty
Italian dressing
2 sprigs fresh cilantro,
chopped*
Mix together, chill for at
least 2 hours or overnight.
Serve with tortilla chips.
Note: Shoe peg corn can
be found in large supermar-
kets near the canned
vegetables, or you can
substitute cooked fresh corn


or regular canned corn.
*I found the addition of
cilantro enhanced the
flavor.
When a recipe is not in my
cookbook, it will have (NIB)
next to the title.
