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
From Bismarck T i l, ,i
www.bismarcktribune.com:
Drunk man found at
grocery store eating
avocados.
Police said a man was
arrested at a grocery store
after workers found him at a
table in the deli, eating
avocados, cake and other
items.
Bismarck Police Lt. Randy
Ziegler said the 38-year-old
man was intoxicated and
had a hearty spread,
including cake, cookies and
plums, in the deli area of
Cashwise Foods about 2:45
a.m. He said the man told
officers he had no money
and had no idea how he
planned to pay for the food.
Police arrested him on a
misdemeanor theft charge.

m: Chicken owner shoots

A northwestWashington
man is recovering after
accidentally shooting
himself in the leg while
hunting an opossum that
had been snatching his
chickens.
Larry Tenbrink of Mount
Vernon was watching TV
when he heard his chickens
"carrying on" late Sunday.
He figured the problem was
the opossum that had
already killed more than a
dozen of his chickens.
He grabbed his .22 caliber
pistol, headed outside and
spotted an opossum the
size of a large cat wandering
his property. But he acci-
dentally pulled the trigger

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY- What
started out 20 years ago as a place
for people to seek information
about assistance for substance
abuse addiction, has grown into a
multi-faceted organization with
services for substance abuse pre-
vention education, counseling, drug
screens and referral services for the
whole community.
The Substance Abuse Council of
Indian River County will celebrate
20 years of service to the communi-
ty in the coming months and every
day they help dozens of people
struggling with addictions to life
damaging habits, said Robin Dapp,
executive director.
"It started as a referral service for
people who discovered that a friend
or family member has a problem, or
they want to help themselves and
they don't know where to go," said
Ms. Dapp.
September is National Alcohol
and Drug Addiction Recovery
Month. For many, the struggle to
sobriety can be helped by sharing
experiences with other people and
the SAC can suggest many local
group sessions, such as Alcoholic
Anonymous, that can be a point of
accountability, said Ms. Dapp.
On a regular basis, the SAC offers
both adult and adolescent counsel-
ing programs with licensed mental
health counselors on-site.
"The best thing to do is to call us
and talk to our counselors to decide
what type of counseling would be
the best fit," said Ms. Dapp.
"We always highly recommend
that people go to counseling,
because it's very important for peo-
ple to have that kind of support
behind them," she said.
"There is help and there is hope,"
Ms. Dapp said.
"And that's what we are here to
do."
Ms. Dapp compared dependency


on substances such as prescription
drugs or alcohol to diseases such as
cancer 20 years ago.
"Nobody said anything about
people that had cancer 20 years ago.
It was a taboo subject and it made
people feel shameful," she said.
"It's a devastating problem that
people really need help for and
shouldn't be
ashamed to ask
for help for.
"Substance
abuse addic-
tion is a dis-
ease that is
so insidi-
ous and

"I think that having the drug test-
ing really is therapeutic," she said.
"It's not just a negative thing, a
punitive thing, but if you look at is
as therapeutic thing, where you're
constantly thinking about being
tested, it might help you think about
whether or not you'll be abusing the
different substances," she
explained.

GIFFORD Nestled in the
heart of the Gifford Youth
Activity Center, the Gifford
Youth Library, the smallest
library in the Indian River
County Library System,
serves its patrons with the
same zeal as larger libraries.
The library has a selection
of books, videos and
resources that are perfect for
young children and students,
library officials said.
The only drawback? Not
many people know it's even
there, said Patti Fuchs, chil-
dren's librarian at the main
library branch inVero Beach.
With five computers that
have word processing pro-
grams and Internet access,
even adults can use the
resource every day.


Computers get the most
usage, said Kittie Buskirk,
library associate in the Gif-
ford branch.
"We've been very busy with
people using the computers
because it's free," she said.
Most people who know
about the library have heard
about it from a friend, but it's
no secret, she said.
"It's a public library and
everyone is welcome to come
in and use the library, just like
they would at the main one
or the North County Library.
If you want a book that we
don't have, you can place it
on hold and we can get it
here for you," said Ms.
Buskirk.
The library is also
equipped with a copier and
fax machine.
The midway location of the
library has benefited some


families already and could do
so even more, she said.
"It really is a perfect
halfway point between Vero
Beach and Sebastian,
between the two bigger
libraries," said Ms. Buskirk.
"For some people that
work and live in the two dif-
ferent places, this is a good
drop off and pick up location
for books," she said.
A structured, after-school
program will begin at the Gif-
ford Library on Sept. 8.
From 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., chil-
dren in first through fifth
grades are invited to partici-
pate in crafts, games and sto-
rytelling activities, said Ms.
Buskirk.
Library hours on weekdays
are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., and 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
The library is closed on Sun-
days.

From page Al
Nona will be introduced to
a new generation of young
readers.
His last book, "Brava,
Strega Nona!" was a care-
fully crafted pop-up book,
in collaboration with
paper engineers Matthew
Reinhart and Robert Sabu-
da.
"The book is beautiful
because of them," said Mr.
dePaola.
Strega Nona, an Italian
woman of grandmother
age, is the main character
in the book series. She is
often found helping the
townspeople with various
ailments and needs, and
instructing her bumbling
assistant, Big Anthony,
who is notorious for not
paying close attention.
Mr. dePaola says many
times, the ideas for the
Strega Nona stories come
from his experiences, but
other seem to develop with
the characters.
"Strega Nona herself
sometimes gives me ideas,
just by whispering them in
my ears," he said laughing-
ly.
This will be the second
time Mr. dePaola visits the
book center, said Cynthia
Grabenbauer, publicist for
the book center.
"He's very kind and he

Talking or texting on a

Teen drivers are espe-

eyes. We are very honored
that he is coming again,"
said Ms. Grabenbauer.
"The story talks about the
importance of order in gar-
dening and also of sharing
with others in the harvest,"
said Ms. Grabenbauer.
Teaching children a les-
son is never his plan while
writing, Mr. dePaola said.
"I never start out trying to
teach something to any-
body, but sometimes, there
is a lot of teaching in life
and it's a natural part of the
story," he said.
In conjunction with the
harvest-themed tale, event
participants are encouraged
to bring foodstuffs to
donate to a local homeless
shelter, Ms. Grabenbauer
said.
Mr. dePaola has written or
illustrated more than 200
books for children.
Due to Mr. dePaola's
planned hand surgery, he
may not sign the books in
person during the event,
but will be available for
questions and photos after
the presentation, Ms.

From page Al
a diverse and sustainable
employment base,"
The idea of the partner-
ship and a unified mindset
is what drove the creation
of the consortium, said
Penny Chandler, executive
director of the chamber.
Mr. Curtis concurred.
"At this time, it is critical
to have the support of a
cross-section of organiza-
tions who support eco-
nomic initiatives and who
are willing to work in col-
laboration with one
another to provide for jobs
and a tax base that will
sustain the life of this
county" Mr. Curtis said.
Ms. Chandler said one
way the coalition will
encourage these changes
will be through the school
system.
"We will try to encour-
age the school district to
focus on the STEM cur-
riculum, the sciences,
technology, engineering
and mathematics, because
they are the foundation
for the types of jobs we're
hoping to bring to the
area," said Ms. Chandler.
"We feel it's important
that the schools recognize
this because we need to
have the students and the
marketability for this
area," she said.
The region's science and
engineering fair for stu-
dents is one example of
the emphasis on STEM
curriculum that the group
wishes to emphasize and
encourage more students
in county schools to par-
ticipate in.
The majority of the
members are also active
participants of the Cham-
ber of Commerce's com-
munity leaders summits.
The consortium will work
in conjunction with eco-
nomic development ini-
tiatives set up by the com-
munity leaders in those
discussions.
Meeting times and dates
were not available at press
time.

VIEWPOINT

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2009 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM


Letter to the editor

The rest of the story

Larry Reisman's editorial of Aug. 19 once again exemplifies
the Press Journal motto, "Only report half the story and then
screw up the half you report."
About the only thing Larry got correct was yes, the commis-
sion did vote to waive five of our nine impact fees for a six-
month period to help spur economic activity in the county.
During the public hearing on this action, the board was
unanimous in that we did not believe residential construction
needed any stimulus, due to the record inventory and vacan-
cies, and that the waiver was targeting commercial and indus-
trial projects to create more jobs.
However, the county attorney gave the opinion that any
impact fee reduction would have to apply to all building per-
mits, both residential and commercial. However, we did
structure the waiver so that residential only received an
approximate 10 percent reduction, while most commercial
and industrial projects received a 35 percent break or larger.
Larry also failed to report that 16 commercial projects did
pull permits during the four month waiver period to date
(waiver was effective April 1). These projects included office
buildings, aquaculture facilities, churches, a bank, a club-
house and a restaurant. The total value of the new projects
was $8.6 million, arguably not a real big number, but certainly
better than zero.
While I cannot speak for the entire board, I believe we are
very cognizant and committed to diversifying our economy,
but that kind of change takes time and patience.
The impact-fee waiver was always designed as a short-term
action to try to generate some activity so folks could put food
on the table. We realize the impact-fee waiver is not the long-
term solution.
One way to attract diversified employment centers is to
make sure our county reflects a "business friendly" climate, a
county that is sensitive to the needs of the business commu-
nity. I firmly believe a short-term waiver of impact fees during
this economic crisis does reflect sensitivity to the needs of the
business community, and thus, is a step forward to a more
diversified economy.
I welcome comments on the subject, which can be mailed
to the county administration building or my e-mail at
pobryan@ircgov.com.

Peter D. O'Bryan
County Commissioner, District 4

Drivers, be careful

Please, please, please drivers, do not take your eyes off
the road while you drive.
With everyone in such a hurry or full of stress lately, it
only takes a split second for you to accidentally run a
light or sign, or someone else not seeing you coming
because they reached over to tune the radio or some-
thing, and your whole day and possibly your world can
change in a moment with an accident.
This happened to me recently and although I was not
hurt, my car is now in the shop getting fixed, and all it
took was a quick, momentary distraction. Then, I had a
big dent in the door.
There are so many ways we can lose our focus with
driving: texting, phone conversations, tuning radios,
reaching on the floor for something, putting makeup on,
even eating.
Be careful out there, everyone, and keep your eyes on
the road and hands on the wheel for your own protec-
tion. I could have been paralyzed for life.

Show some patriotism

Wouldn't it be nice if our county were seen as the most
patriotic community in the state?
One way to get this recognition would be if everybody
flew the American flag on Labor Day. Let's all show the
colors.

Dealing with grief, one year later


ept. 13 is the first
anniversary of my
husband Roy's death.
I want to thank my
readers for the kind
expressions of sympathy
and understanding I've
received and to let you
know how I am doing.
In many ways, I am a
different person. Losing a
spouse after a long
marriage is a bit like being
in your 20s again, in the
sense that you have to
make a life for yourself.
You have a lot more
experience and a lot more
aches and pains. Still, the
process is, in many ways,
the same. You try some-
thing and if it doesn't
work, you move on to
something else.
As I've written, I have
begun doing yoga and I've
become pretty good at it.
My teacher, Sherry Killila,
asked me why I hadn't
done yoga before and I
told her that I'd tried it
years ago and it was too
complicated. I gave up.
There's a lesson there. So
many of us give up after
one try. Now I'm so
thrilled with the class I've


ALIVE
& WELL
SSHELLEY KOPPEL



found the right one for
me that I hope to keep
doing it for years.
One of the things you
realize when you lose a
spouse is that suddenly,
you're not first in anyone's
life. It sounds so selfish,
but it's true. There's a
tendency to become a
little self-absorbed, to see
everything through the
prism of your loss and
pain. It's important to
remember that other
people have lives and
problems and that you still
need to be a friend to
them. It can't always be
about you.
I have learned there are
some things I can control.
I had begun neglecting my
health in a big way while
Roy was so ill at the end. I
know he was worried
about me. After he died, I
began a program of
aerobic exercise, strength


training, yoga and better
diet.
My blood pressure,
which had begun to creep
up, is normal, without
medication. My liver
enzymes that became
elevated are normal, also
without medication. Even
my white count, an
indication of the health of
my immune system, is
better for the first time in
years.
I am pleased that I have
been able to accomplish
this during a very difficult
year. I have more goals
and I will continue to work
on them.
I have begun getting out
more. I realized that my
world had narrowed to the
confines of U.S. 1 back
and forth to appointments
and meetings. I try to
challenge myself in little
ways, to go someplace
new, meet someone new. I
know I've lost a lot of
confidence and I'm
working to get it back.
Rebuilding a life is not
easy, especially while
you're grieving. I miss Roy
so much, and that pain
will be there for a very


long time. I have begun to
feel hope, though, that I
can make a new life, a
different life.
Roy and I talked about it
and I know that's what he
wanted for me. It's just
going to take a bit longer
than he thought. He was
so modest that he didn't
know the hole that his
death would leave in me.

How to read previous columns


One of the more
frequently asked
questions that show
up in my in basket are
"where can I get a copy of a
previous column"? or "can
you send me a copy of that
column where you wrote
about [whatever]"?
I have always in the past
replied to these requests
with a link to the Home-
town News' own Web site
where you can find an
archive filled with all of my
past columns (along with
absolutely tons of other
awesome Hometown News
content!). Just go to
www.myhometownnews. ne
t and look down the left
hand side for the "Comput-

that and you will see my
most recent column and
be able to access the
archives by clicking (you
guessed it!) the archives
link.
This week I am happy to
announce the launch of
my newsletter along with
myWeb site, www. Com-

If you have emailed me
in the past and I replied
with some type of helpful

or two of the newsletter
because that is where I got
my first batch of addresses.

municated before and you
would like to be added to
my newsletter mailing list,
the easiest way to get
yourself included is to visit
my Web site, www.Com-
puteThisOnline.com, and
find the "Sign Up For My E-
mail Newsletter, It's Free!"
thingy about half way
down the page on the right
hand side.
The idea of a newsletter
is not a new one people
have been asking me for
one for years and I have
resisted. You see, I hate
spam the last thing I
want to do is flood every-
one's in basket with
unsolicited emails and, up
till now, I didn't see any
way to publish a newsletter
without contributing to the
spam problem.
The way around the
whole spam issue is to
send the newsletter only to
people who want to hear
from me and to make sure
that each and every
recipient has a way to
instantly remove them-
selves from the list should
they decide they no longer
want to receive my


newsletter.
On the flip side of that
there also needs to be a
way for people to add
themselves to the list
without much difficulty
and the list needs to be
easy to manage. I found all
these things in a system
called Constant Contact
and so far, I have to say I'm
impressed with their
system.
Summer is always the
slow time for me and this
summer was one of the
slowest. What that means
is that I have had a lot of
time these last few months
to put things in place to
better serve you, my
faithful readers. Things like
my Web site with
sometimes daily updates,
ComputeThisOnline.com
(a companion site to this
column) can be considered
"fresh" enough for regular
return visits. Click on by
and take a look. I welcome
your feedback.
I have also added a toll
free number for everyone
outside of my local area. I
know that many of you live
quite a ways away from me
and are often reluctant to
make a toll call. Now I can
be reached at (888) 752-
9049 as well as (772) 408-
0680 and I do try to answer
(or return) every call I get.
The other things that I
have ironed out are how I
can connect to you over


the Internet consistently
when you do need help,
and ways you can pay me
that aren't so painful. I've
taken the time to find
several secure ways to
connect to your machines
remotely so I can fix many
issues over the Internet
without much fuss. It
typically only takes me
about three or four min-
utes to connect to you
regardless of whether you
are right next door or 3,000
miles away. That means I
can often (not always, but
often) take care of prob-
lems right away without
having to set up an
appointment way off in the
future and then use a
bunch of gas getting there.
So I guess you could say
my business is "going
green!"
I have also put together a
"Back to School" special
where I offer to tune up
and check out your
computer over the internet
for a low flat fee and I am
able to collect payment by
credit card another
thing that has been a long
time coming.
So, visit my Web site and
join my mailing list -
you'll be glad you did!

Just moments before a rainstorm flooded the Sebastian Skate Park, Zachary Rauler-
son, 15, of Sebastian, makes a difficult jump at the park last Saturday.

would help the budget.
The hiring freeze would
also stay in effect for the
coming year, though
exceptions can be made if
necessary, Mr. Minner said.
He also recommended
the property tax or millage
rate stay at the same level
as the 2008-09 rate, which
he said would amount to a
tax decrease for most peo-
ple.
The property tax rate
would definitely need to be
raised in the coming years,
however, Mr. Minner said.
He estimated residents
could see a tax decrease of
up to 17 percent, because
of a decrease in taxable
value on homes and an
unchanged property tax
rate.
When council members
argued the numbers were
based on homes that


received homestead
exemptions, Mr. Minner
agreed not everyone would
see the same decrease, and
some may see an increase.
Councilman Jim Hill
noted over the past four
months, the budget has
moved from a $400,000
deficit to an $84,000
deficit, thanks to hard
work by department
heads and the city manag-
er.
During the meeting, Mr.
Hill asked Mr. Minner just
how much more than the
projected numbers the
average taxpayer would
have to pay for the prop-
erty tax rate to be raised
just enough to cover the
shortfall, because he did-
n't want to see the city dip
into its reserves if that
could be avoided.
"I don't like putting off
expenses to our children
and I am a strong propo-
nent for not raising taxes.
It's easy to say that we did


a good job on the budget,
but next August, the city
council will have to sit
here and go to the max (in
raising the property tax)
and still need to dip into
reserves," said Mr. Hill.
Mr. Minner estimated it
to be $9 more.
Councilman Eugene
Wolff said he was a little
concerned about the
amount of money budget-
ed for street paving in the
new budget.
The proposed budget
allocates $50,000 for
street paving, which is the
same amount set aside for
covering the city splash
pad.
The priorities seemed a
little skewed, Mr. Wolff
said.
He also suggested the
city look at trying to save
funds on its telephone
bill, which is budgeted for
$65,000.
"It's just that it's a lot of
money and I think it's

own choices. If you get

it, oh well, we are all
adults. But there is a
dummy on a motorcycle
without a helmet flying
down the road. And
nobody does anything
about that. Why don't they
change that law?

More on food
stamps

I agree about food
stamps. I see people in
stores with nice clothes
and fancy cars. My hus-
band and I are living on
$17,000 a year Social Secu-
rity. I have bills here that I
can't pay. I'm afraid that
my lights or water are
going to be turned off. We
were turned down for food
stamps. People who have
fought for this country
can't get them, but those
who haven't been here
long can.


worth looking at to possi-
bly get some savings," said
Mr. Wolff.
Mr. Minner said the
phone usage and related
costs were already being
looked into and estimated
that some changes could
cut $10,000 out of the bill.
Ed Herlihy, chairman of
the advisory board, said he
was pleased with how the
budget worked out, but
reiterated the board's con-
cerns for next year and
asked the council to seri-
ously look at the costs of
employee benefits in the
coming year.
The council will hold two
readings of the budget, the
first on Sept. 14 at 6 p.m.
and the second on Sept. 23,
also at 6 p.m. A vote on the
budget will be taken at the
Sept. 23 meeting.

The quintessential beach town


Cocoa Beach
conquers all:
surfing, dining,
fishing, fun
By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
The name "Cocoa Beach"
brings many things to mind:
the NASA space program, a
legendary surfing communi-
ty and the setting for the
long-running TV series, "I
Dream of Jeannie."
But today, the city of Cocoa
Beach offers so much more.
Nestled between the
Atlantic Ocean and the
Banana River Lagoon, the
barrier island of Cocoa
Beach is often referred to as
"the jewel of the Space
Coast."
And it isn't difficult to see
why.
Cocoa Beach is both a resi-
dential community and
tourist destination with a
base population of 12,800,
according to the city of
Cocoa Beach Web site,
www.cityofcocoabeach.com.
But each year that number
reaches as high as 30,000
during the peak tourist sea-
son when thousands flock to
the area to soak up the sun
and spend a week or two
doing some Space Coast
sightseeing.
For the past several
decades, Cocoa Beach has
done an excellent job of pre-
serving its historic down-
town area.
From surf shops and cloth-
ing boutiques to gift stores
and jewelry venues, it's easy
to make a day out of shop-
ping- whether by bicycle or
on foot.
Restaurants, such as the
long-standing Heidelberg
and Mango Tree, or weekend
hot spots, such as Coconuts
on the Beach and the Chili


Mentoring


makes a


difference

Detecting on Florida's Treasure Coast.' He has been treasure hunting for 15 years.


Pepper Club, cater to crowds
of all ages.
Another draw to the multi-
faceted city is the beautiful
wildlife, fishing opportuni-
ties and unique plant
species found throughout its
waterways.
Cocoa Beach's Thousand
Islands function as a "learn-
ing laboratory" for those
eager to explore the mazes of
mosquito canals and local
ecology, according to the
Thousand Island's Web site,
www.thousand-islands.org.
At any one time, kayakers
can observe pelicans, bottle-
nosed dolphin, manatee,
river otter, rabbit and vari-
ous species of fish through-
out their island journey.
Just around the corner is
another hot spot, known to
house a different type of
species dogs.


Opened in March 2007,
the Lori Wilson Off-Leash
Dog Park is a 32,000-square-
foot paradise for pups and
their owners.
Equipped with benches,
dog toys and obstacles for
both large and small dog-
gies, the park serves regular
attendees, as well as one-
time visitors.
While all of these activities
are significant to the city, it is
the sport of surfing that has
helped shape Cocoa Beach.
For starters, Ron Jon Surf
Shop, which was opened in
the early 1960s, is a four-
level surf emporium visited
by thousands each year.
And with six miles of
shoreline, there are a num-
ber of places for residents
and tourists to take on the
surf, one of them being the
Cocoa Beach Pier.


Many East Coast surfing
legends, such as Dick Catri
and Kelly Slater, got their
start surfing those very
waves.
More than 80 surfers from
every generation have been
inducted into the city's East
Coast Surfing Hall of Fame,
which doubles as a public
museum.
"We developed a concept
years ago that, as surfers, we
are a society," said Rep. Tony
Sasso, R-Cocoa Beach, who
grew up surfing in the com-
munity and helped concep-
tualize the surf museum. "In
recognizing that, we hope to
keep the door open for the
next generation."

Pet food bank open on Sunday


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
VERO BEACH The
Humane Society of Vero
Beach and Indian River
County pet food bank will
be open every Sunday in
the shelter's adoption and
education center.
Food will be distributed
from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. to
Indian River County pet


owners seeking assistance.
"Our goal is to keep pets
and people together. For
those families who are
struggling to feed their
pets, we're hoping our
food bank will achieve
that goal," said Phaedra
Kohler, director of cus-
tomer and volunteer serv-
ices.
Pet food bank recipients
are asked to bring a photo


ID and fill out an applica-
tion listing the number
and type of animals in
their home. Recipients
can receive pet food for

The 61-year-old handy-
man told the SkagitValley
Herald that he's back home
after a trip to the hospital.
And though the opossum is
free for now, he'll be hunting
it again. Next time, he says
he'll use a trap.
From sfgate.com: If it's
Thursday, this must be a
robbery.
A New Jersey man who
robbed banks every Thurs-
day has been sentenced to
nearly six years in federal
prison.
Peter Bielecke (by-LEK'-

one count of bank robbery,
but admitted five other
holdups on consecutive
Thursday in January,
February and March.
He robbed banks in several
cities including Brick, his
hometown. He didn't give a
reason for choosing Thurs-
days, but authorities say the
pattern made it easier to
track him.
From The Journal News,
www.thejournalnews.com:
Senior chases DWI suspect
through two states.
An 83-year-old driver
chased a pickup truck for 15
miles from New York into
Connecticut, helping police
catch the drunken driving
suspect who rear-ended his
car. The incident started on


Interstate-684 in southeast
NewYork.
Frank Canale of Scarsdale,
N.Y., pursued the man to his
driveway in Danbury, Conn.,
and stayed there until police
arrived. He says he feared the
man could kill someone. His
daughter called police on her
cell phone during the chase.
By the time they finished
filing police reports in two
states, the pair missed the
wedding they were heading
to. Police say the truck's
driver was charged with
driving under the influence
and driving without a
license.

look back,


forward
wo weeks into my
60th decade, and 40
years after Wood-
stock, I found it is entirely
possible to go back in time.
No, I didn't inherit H.G.
Wells' time machine.
Anyone with recollection
can revisit past people,
places and things. Conjur-
ing them up is quite simple.
But having a living,
breathing, three-dimen-
sional "memory" material-
ize, if even for a brief
moment, is truly a cosmic
miracle of sorts.
Such a "reappearance"
occurred last week at a
sold-out concert by Crosby,
Stills & Nash at the King
Center in Melbourne. The
peripatetic performers -
true '60s kids in their 60s -
seem to go out on the road
almost yearly, with or
without sometime band
member Neil Young.
But in addition to playing
and singing their folk/rock
music, these guys also
perform magic.
Unlike the David Copper-
fields and Doug Hemmings
of this world who make
elephants and jet planes
seemingly disappear, this
band conjures up an entire
"happening" that unites a
diverse audience of thou-
sands into one, cohesive
spirit. It's quite a trick.
When last I saw them in
2006, David Crosby,
Stephen Stills, Graham
Nash and Neil Young were
in West Palm Beach making
a stop on their "Freedom of
Speech" tour.
It was the most powerful
live music experience I
have ever attended (and I
saw The Beatles when I was
16, which was no small
thing).
CS&N's classic hits were
never sung in better
harmony and Neil Young's
presence imbued an added
layer of energy and cohe-
sion to a group already
known for their tight
harmonies and keen
musicianship.
That concert also made
major political statements
in an excoriation of the
George W. Bush administra-
tion and the war in Iraq.

Director passionate about his endeavors


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH Long-
time Vero Beach resident
Mark Wygonik is truly a
man for all seasons.
He literally radiates
energy, especially when
discussing arts-related
endeavors or worthy caus-
es.
He recently completed
casting for the musical
"Cabaret," which will likely
become the season block-
buster when it opens Nov.
12 at the Vero Beach The-
atre Guild.
"I live my passion. You
can't live your life afraid,
especially if you're
involved in the arts. You
have to be bold and try,"
Mr. Wygonik said.
Daring to "put yourself
out there for criticism
every time" is what Mr.


Wygonik admires in per-
formers.
In his auditions for
"Cabaret," he sought per-
formers with guts.
"This show really repre-
sents a huge leap forward
in the Theatre Guild's his-
tory because it's such an
important show," Mr.
Wygonik said.
The guild, which will
open its 52nd season, fea-
tures high-caliber shows
by volunteer performers
who are nonetheless capa-
ble and experienced in
theater.
"This is community the-
ater. Nobody is paid to be
in these shows and there
are a lot of selfless people
out there who are willing
to give up their time," Mr.
Wygonik said.
Though he modestly
neglected to mention that
he, too, is unpaid for his


casting, directing and myr-
iad theater duties, Mr.
Wygonik brings a profes-
sional level of expertise
and an altruistic spirit to
his endeavors.
"You should give back to
the community as much as
you take from it.
"We live in a very fast-
paced, electronic age
where things change by
the minute. The arts tend
to give a sense of perma-
nence to what is
unknown," he said.
He became involved in
artistic activities while still
in high school.
"I knew I was an artist
and I won an anti-drug
poster contest in the sev-
enth or eighth grade.
"In high school, I decid-
ed I wanted to focus on
commercial art," he said.
After graduation, he
attended a South Florida


school of advertising
design.
"That school taught me
discipline and to focus on
creativity. I also learned to
use all the tools artists can
utilize," he said.
Mr. Wygonik became a
graphic designer with a
Stuart advertising agency.
He later became art direc-
tor for a Caribbean-based
publication.
"I chucked the formal ad
world and went to live in
the Caribbean. Our main
offices were in Grand Turk
and I spent four years trav-
eling and creating really
fun art," Mr. Wygonik said.
A natural entrepreneur,
Mr. Wygonik was able to
reduce his housing costs
there by house-sitting for
wealthy clients.

Vibe
From page B1
The magnificence of their
performance and the
camaraderie of an audience
of my peers lifted my spirits
to the heavens and I'm not
sure if I drove or floated
home.
Exactly three years later, I
was returning to see them
again.
A few weeks ago, I wrote
about the reasons for my
feelings of special kinship to
that band, particularly to
David Crosby and Graham
Nash.
I will summarize by
saying that David Crosby
was the catalyst that got me
writing for newspapers for
almost 24 years.
Through their collective
musical voices, I found my
own literary one.
In turning 60,1 I realized I


had come to that stage of
life where there are more
miles behind me than those
yet to be traveled.
But what I more impor-
tantly learned is that there
needs to be a healthy
balance in which we
periodically take retrospec-
tive look back in the rear
view mirror of our life, while
concurrently keeping our
eyes steadily and clearly
focused on the road ahead.
Seeing CS&N in concert
was the perfect incarnation
of that premise. They
performed together as a
band for only the second
time when they came
onstage atWoodstock at 4
a.m. in August 1969.
Look back 40 years.
This night in Melbourne,
they played the classic hits
which made them famous,
as well as several other
songs such as "Ruby Tues-
day" by the Rolling Stones.


The musical hits of the
past still had resonance in
the present.
Though Stephen Stills'
voice was hoarse and weak,
his compatriots Crosby and
Nash were in fine vocal
form. Crosby, especially,
retains the strong, pure
voice of his youth despite
his prior years of drug
abuse.
Stills' virtuosity on the
guitar has, perhaps, grown
with the years and it
brought the cheering crowd
to its feet many times that
night.
They are each music icons
of my generation through
their individual affiliations
with Buffalo Springfield
(Stephen Stills), the Byrds
(David Crosby) and the
Hollies (Graham Nash) prior
to forming together as
CS&N.
Look back in time at them
(and ourselves) without grey


hair, wrinkles and a few too
many pounds. See them
now, physically aging but
ageless in their spirit and
music.
Look ahead, and "see"
them rock on with groups
such as the Rolling Stones,
Paul McCartney and other
aging superstars, who still
have the music within them
and need to express it as
much as we need to hear it.
We are older (hopefully
wiser), but still of that
former time and place.
Through music and other
things which jog our
memories we can stop time,
rewind the old tapes and
play them again and again.
We have discovered our
own Einstein-like equation.
It goes like this: Living = past
+ memory + present +
future.
Find your own inner song
and don't stop singing it. It's
the best magic there is.

IHometownNews SUPER BUY$of the week i



Don't believe everything you see printed on coupons


One of the most
common miscon-
ceptions about
coupons is that the item
you buy must match the
picture that appears on the
face of the coupon.
It's true that you can use
the coupon to purchase the
item that's pictured.
However, you want to pay
close attention to the text
on a coupon, too. After all,
the text contains the


precise information that
the coupon's bar code is
programmed to deliver at
the checkout counter,
which brings us to this
week's tip: forget the


photos, read the fine print.
It's a very common
marketing technique for a
manufacturer to show a
new or more expensive
variety of a product on the
face of a coupon, in the
hope you will buy this new
or more expensive variety.
If you read the coupon,
though, you'll discover that
the offer is good for "$1 off
any (brand) product."
Consider a coupon for a

new variety of cold medi-
cine put out by a leading
manufacturer. The coupon
may show the new, multi-
symptom medicine in the
picture, hoping you will
want to try it, but the text
states clearly you can use
the coupon on any medi-
cine from this manufactur-
er.
Learning to distinguish
between what the photo
suggests and the full terms
of the deal the text actually
spells out is a skill that can
really help shoppers, giving
us more freedom to buy the
item we may prefer versus
the variety shown in the
photo.
I recently had a coupon
for a new variety of skin-
care product. It showed a
photo of the lotion and the
text read "$1 off (brand)
lotion, body wash or any
(brand) product." That
wording is key! When I
didn't see a good sale for
the company's lotions or
body wash, I did see a bar
of the same brand of soap
for 99 cents. With my
coupon, it was free.
Brand-name sandwich
meat is an area where it can
pay to read coupon word-
ing closely. People often ask
me how to save at the deli
counter. It's not always easy


to get discounts on fresh-
cut cold cuts. But many
meat manufacturers sell
pre-packaged deli meats,
too, and there are often
coupons for those.
Look closely at the
wording on these coupons.
While the coupon may
show a boxed or bagged
variety of meat, the word-
ing often spells out a wider
deal, such as "$1 off 1
package of (brand) sliced
meat, or 1 pound of (brand)
sliced meats at the deli."
These coupons are a great
way to save on fresh-sliced
meats of the same brand at
the deli counter.
Ready for another tip?
This one involves brand
loyalty. While we all have
favorite brands of things,
our brand loyalty can cost
us in the long run if we
aren't shopping smart for
those favorite-brand items
when they're on sale.
Major brands often
engage in what the industry
calls "price wars" with one
another. We see this
frequently with items such
as pasta sauce, where
numerous brands compete
to sell what is essentially
the same product. Brand A
may be cheap one week,
but next week, Brand B
barrels in with an even


lower price.
This works out well for
shoppers who aren't
particularly partial to any
specific brand. But if we
think "I really like Brand A,
and I will always buy it no
matter what," it's great
when Brand A is on sale for
$1.29 a jar and we've got a
75-cent coupon for it. But
when the sale ends and
Brand A goes back up to
$3.29 ajar, we'll be paying
the price.
If we can let some of our
brand preferences slide a
little bit and fluctuate along
with the sales, we can save
more money in the long
run.
Next week, I'll share one
of the biggest and most
surprising tips with you. It
involves which days of the
week are the least expen-
sive days to shop at the
grocery store. You might be
surprised to learn what
they are.

artist also discovered other creative outlets.
"We were finding a need to solidify all the
theatrical opportunities, so we organized a
performing theater group throughout the
islands," Mr. Wygonik said.
In the 1980s, the Turks & Caicos Islands
were also perfectly situated as a gateway for
drug smugglers running contraband to the
United States.
High-level government officials were
known to look the other way.


"The chief minister of the island was
arrested and there was also a series of break-
ins in the banks," Mr. Wygonik said.
The islands' climate was changing and it
had nothing to do with the nearly-perfect
weather.
"I started feeling restless and was thinking,
'do I really want to live in a foreign country?'
"I also realized that I had stopped produc-
ing art and was having fun being a beach
bum," Mr. Wygonik said with a laugh.
He returned toVero Beach in 1985 for what
he thought would be a "brief stopover." But
he found that in his absence, the community
had flourished and the arts community was


strongly emerging.
"Several of us formed an arts group called
l'esprit des amis, the spirit of friends.
"Our purpose was to promote arts and
raise funds for scholarships. That put me on
the path of community involvement for the
arts," Mr. Wygonik said.
Since that time, he has become a commu-
nity leader and activist involved in a variety
of charitable, theatrical and cultural events.
For six years he has served on the board of
the county's Cultural Council.
He was previously involved in a local AIDS
support group, which provided much-need-
ed services for about 14 years, until AIDS


awareness became universal and assistance
more readily obtained.
With his business partner, Chris Foster,
Mr. Wygonik owns an entertainment pro-
duction company that produces live stage
shows and theatrical workshops.
FW Productions just completed a nine-
month run of a show called "Jambalaya" at
the renowned Crystal Palace Casino on Nas-
sau's Cable Beach.
The company also produces shows for
Native American-owned casinos in upstate
NewYork.
"It makes us human to create, encourage
and promote the arts," he said.
