HOW WEIRD
IS THAT?!
SEAN MCCARTHY



pend 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 www.mysananto-
nio.com: Police: Texas
grandma made bomb
threat to school
Officials accused a 51-
year-old San Antonio
grandmother of phoning a
bomb threat to an elemen-
tary school that wouldn't let
her visit her grandchildren.
The state jailWeb site
says Velma Gladys Brewster
was free on bond after
being charged with making
a terrorist threat to Wind-
crest Elementary School in
northeastern San Antonio.
More than 700 students and
faculty members evacuated
the campus Thursday after
school officials received a
threatening voicemail.
No explosives were
found. A phone message
left at Brewster's home
Friday was not returned.
Police said Brewster didn't
have permission from her
daughter to visit her
grandchildren at the
school.
From St. Petersburg

A Florida man born
without arms says a Tampa

'Green' construction well


underway at learning center


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
WABASSO Slowly but surely,
the new wet lab at the Environ-
mental Learning Center is getting
constructed, bringing excitement
to the staff and visitors, the execu-
tive director said.
"It's not been noisy yet, but even
if it had been, we'd still be shout-
ing with glee that the construction
is finally underway," said ELC
executive director Holly Dill with a
laugh.
Last June, the building that
housed the wet lab and provided
classroom and activity space was


destroyed in a fire. The recon-
struction project is directly on the
same spot of the previous building
and will be the same size, or "foot-
print," Ms. Dill said.
The fundraising goal for the
construction project is $1.7 mil-
lion.
"Right now we're at $1.5 million,
so we're almost there, but we need
to keep on raising those funds,"
said Ms. Dill.
The foundational structure of
the 4,500-square-foot building is
entirely different from other
buildings on campus, Ms. Dill
said.
Creating cement pilings was the


project.
"It is a com-
pletely different
support structure
than the other
buildings have
and there are two
reasons: one, it's hb., JI, 11
will provide added support.
"The second reason is because
we are going for a Green Globe
certification, which is a green
building initiative," said Ms. Dill.
The flooring is currently being
installed, she said.
The construction will empha-
size the center's commitment to


being
environmentally-friend-
ly, she added.
Other eco-friendly aspects of
the building include solar panels
on the roof.
"We will have the traditional

encourage adult-child
interaction that families
today often miss in every
day busy-ness, said Mr.
Bumgarner.
"We are going to have a
game room where there
will be pool challenges, an


air hockey tournament
and an Internet scavenger
hunt with trivia ques-
tions," said Mr. Bumgar-
ner.
"We'll have a kickball
game, dads and daughters
versus mothers and sons,
and we'll also have a place
for portrait time. At one
time parents will have the
opportunity to draw a


portrait of their kids, and
then the children will
have the opportunity to
draw their parent," he
said.
A Guitar Hero tourna-
ment should also be good
for a few laughs, the direc-
tor said.
Adult involvement in a
child's life is crucial to
their development, the


director said.
"We all need that person
who will support us, chal-
lenge us to achieve greater
and greater things," said
Mr. Bumgarner.
"It's so important to for
children to have trusting,
healthy relationships with
adults, and that's what we
encourage at the Boys &
Girls Club."

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Mark Quenan has been
hired as physician recruiter
at Indian River Medical
Center.
Previously, the hospital
contracted with outside
agencies to provide recruit-
ing services, which was
expensive and at times,
unproductive.
Mr. Quenan will function
as the point person who
oversees every aspect of the
recruitment process, from
marketing all the current
opportunities, to screening
candidates, organizing site
visits and ultimately, transi-
tioning new physicians into
the medical center and
community.
At the request of the hos-
pital and private practices,
he will assist in recruiting
private practitioners in
those specialties for which a
community need currently
exists.
Mr. Quenan, who is a
native of Marietta, Ga., and

Society thrift shop manager.
"We have a wonderful
selection of vintage, silver and
gold costume jewelry for cus-
tomers to look through," she
said.
The products will be set up
inside the shelter's adoption
and education center, accord-
ing to a press release.
New clothing for men,
women and children will also
be sold at the indoor market,
said Ms. Barcus.
"This event is totally set up
and run by our volunteers,
who work extra hard to pull
this off and make it success-


After the clean up is com-
plete, the collected items are
cataloged and a record is
sent to the international
organizing group, Ocean
Conservancy, said Ms. Stur-
divant.
This year, KIRB will send
results and tell the commu-
nity what types of trash is
most common on Indian
River County coastlines ,
whether it's soda cans, bot-
tle caps, plastic bags or any
other type of trash.
Last year, close to 400,000
volunteers picked up a com-
bined total of more than 6.8
million pounds of trash in
100 countries and 42 states
in the U.S., according to a
report issued by Ocean Con-
servancy.
Last year in Florida alone,
volunteers picked up a total
of 82,314 caps or tops and
197,389 cigarettes or ciga-
rette filters, the report said.


Mark Quenan


a graduate of Oglethorpe
University in Atlanta, is
challenged with establish-
ing the entire process and
protocols for the recruit-
ment program.
His past experience as
vice president of recruit-
ment for a nationally recog-
nized, retained physician
search firm, brings credibili-
ty to the process and will
allow him to use the con-
tacts he has made during his
previous nine years of pro-
fessional recruitment expe-
rience.


ful," she said.
Proceeds from the event,
which raised more than
$10,000 last year, and from
year-round purchases at the
two thrift shops, are a main
source of financial support for
the animals at the shelter, said
Ms. Barcus.
Donations of used or gently
used items are welcome year-
round at the thrift shops, she
said.

The Sebastian shop is locat-
ed at 441 Sebastian Blvd., and
the Vero Beach shop is located
at 4445 20th Street.
For more information about
the No Flea Market or making
donations to the thrift shops,
call (772) 567-2044.


"There's a place in the
Pacific Ocean that is known
as the garbage patch and is 1
to 2 miles wide and full of
plastic. It just accumulated
there over the years because
of the currents. I can only
imagine that that is what
our waters would look like if
we didn't do the clean up
here," Ms. Sturdivant said.
One way to avoid all the
plastic bottle tops found
lying on the beaches is by
using reusable water bottles
instead of disposable ones
you can buy in a big pack at
the store, said Ms. Sturdi-
vant.
"Not only would it be
good for the environment,
but it will be good for your
budget too," she said.

event, Rep. Posey was
joined onstage by a panel
that included other politi-
cians and medical care
providers, each of whom
shared opinions on vari-
ous reform proposals.
"These bills are the
beginning of a slippery
slope to socialized medi-
cine," said panelist and
state Rep. Mike Horner, R-
Kissimmee.
That remark was fol-
lowed by boisterous agree-
ment from the audience.
But "neither the presi-
dent nor the congressional
committees have suggest-
ed anything remotely
resembling a government
takeover of health care,"
according to the article,
"The Assault on Truth," in
the September edition of
the AARP Bulletin.
The health care reform
proposals, which exclude
those with employer
insurance from a public
plan, could be refined into
a single bill this fall, the
article stated.
Panelist and Health First
administrator Bill Ellis
called for "cost contain-
ment" in health care and
said America needs more
doctors and nurses. He
said he believes the num-
ber of doctors and nurses
who are graduating now
matches the number from
1975.
Mr. Ellis and other pan-
elists also called for tort
reform, which they said
would help encourage
people to enter health care
professions.
Mr. Ellis said doctors
often tell him that 20 per-
cent of the tests they
approve for their patients
are not medically neces-
sary but are needed to
avoid lawsuits.
In Indian River County,
it is difficult to find physi-
cians who accept Medic-
aid because the payments
are so low, said panelist

Congressman Bill Posey held a Town Hall meeting concerning healthcare at the Maxwell
C. King Center in Melbourne last week.


'We must have increased reimbursements to
providers or else we'll get even more people
in nursing homes.

James Newbrough
President, Visiting Nurse Assoc. of Treasure Coast


James Newbrough, presi-
dent of the Visiting Nurse
Association of the Trea-
sure Coast.
"We must have
increased reimbursements
to providers or else we'll
get even more people in
nursing homes," he said.
Mr. Newbrough urged
Rep. Posey and other legis-
lators to prevent cuts to
hospice and home health
care funding.
Panelist Don Loftus,
chief executive officer of
Treasure Coast Communi-
ty Health Center, said the
financial side of the lead-
ing legislative bill on
health care reform "terri-
fies" him.
He and other panelists
urged Rep. Posey to read
the entire, 1,000-plus
pages of the bill and


ensure other legislators
are aware of everything it
contains.
Near the end of the
meeting, Rep. Posey dis-
cussed his health care
reform principals, which
call for Americans to be
able to keep their current
health care plan, a focus
on those who lack access
to care, a 72-hour review
by the public and Con-
gress of pending reform
legislation and a require-
ment of all members of
Congress to be covered by
any public plan.
"If we pass (a public
plan that Congress must
use), you can be sure
nothing bad is going to
happen to you," Rep.
Posey said.
He said he supports tax
credits of $2,000 per indi-


vidual and $5,500 per fam-
ily to make health insur-
ance more affordable, and
opposes any legislation
that calls for raising taxes
on small businesses to
help pay for health care.
After the meeting, 29-
year-old Indialantic resi-
dent Faiz Shakir said he
did not think Rep. Posey
and the panelists provided
enough information about
health care reform.
"I thought there was an
effort by the panel to fili-
buster" or obstruct discus-
sion of some issues with
the audience, he said.
Mr. Shakir also noted
that many people in atten-
dance were senior citi-
zens.
"Many of the elderly
here could vouch for the
strength of Medicare,"
which is run by the federal
government, he said. "I'm
in support of extending
the benefits the elderly
have to the rest of the
nation."

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Just
eight short years ago, the United
States stood still as airplanes and
buildings were attacked by foreign
enemies.
Today, local fire and law enforce-
ment will commemorate the lives
of the brave military men, women
and civilians who lost their lives
that day and since in fighting the
enemy.
At 8:30 a.m. at Veterans Memorial
Island Sanctuary, a free one-hour
ceremony will take place with
speakers, honor guards from local
fire and law enforcement agencies
and music, featuring the U.S. Navy
Ceremonial Band from the Naval
Air Station in Jacksonville.
This evening, at 7 p.m. at River-
side Theatre in Vero Beach, there
will be a similar, dignified tribute
ceremony held, also free of charge,
according to a press release.
Seating is limited to 700 at the
theater, so reservations are
required.
To reserve a seat, call (772) 231-
6990.
Veterans Memorial Island is locat-
ed at 350 Dahlia Lane, Vero Beach.

Once the wet lab is fully
constructed, the staff will
begin to install all of the
interactive stations that
have been designed in the
interim.
One new aspect to the lab
will be a fully interactive
touch-tank, Ms. Dill said.
"It will be a shallow tank
of water that we'll put her-
mit crabs and clams into,
so that the youngsters can
interact with the animals in
a very safe environment.
We've never had anything
like that before," she said.
There will also be

exhibits about sea grass
beds and the eco-system of
mangroves. All the exhibits
will relate to the ecosystem
found right in the Indian
River Lagoon, said Ms. Dill.
"Visitors can expect a lot
of hands-on interaction in
the wet lab," she added.
The fire and devastation
didn't deter staff at the ELC


from keeping other aspects
of the center open and that
will continue during the
construction phase.
Through September,
items in the ELC Nature
Nook gift shop are 40 per-
cent off.
"There are tons of gifts
available in the gift shop,
jewelry, hostess gifts, gifts


for children, all with an
eco-theme," said Ms. Dill.
In the coming weeks, the
staff will post a schedule of
lectures and events open to

Compute this praise

Every week I look forward to Sean McCarthy's column
"Compute This."
I never imagined how nice he and accessible he would be.
When I called the number at the end of his article, he readi-
ly gave much-needed advice regarding my computer.
For that, he is, in my opinion, a rare gem and asset to your
paper.

From a concerned senior citizen

I wish to address the part of Obama's universal health
care plan that states anyone 75 and over, in order to main-
tain membership in the plan, must be counseled on sui-
cide.
Some people may think that the elderly who are retired
and do not work do not contribute to society and should be
written off. This is far from the truth.
I am 81, and retired, but I still pay more than $2,200 in
income tax. I pay sales tax and I buy items, which keep our
economy thriving.
Medicare is not free. My wife and I pay for our Medicare,
parts A and B, $1,200 each year, plus for our supplement
health insurance (with deductible) $2,000 per year. This is a
total cost of $4,800 per year for our health insurance.
I also volunteer my services to help my fellow veterans
and small school children. I feel, as well as other retirees,
that I still contribute more than my share for the better-
ment of our society. There are many elderly people who still
contribute more than some of the younger people who sup-
posedly are working.
Please help stop this ill-conceived health plan, which
Obama is trying to rush through Congress.
A health plan of this magnitude should take careful and
meticulous planning and not be rushed into law. It must be
remembered that our constitution states, "all men are creat-
ed equal," and should be treated equally.
We must create laws which are equal for all and follow the
rules of fair play and our democratic principles.
We elderly struggled through the trials and tribulations of
life and in our autumn years, should have the right to live.

Not the best

I keep reading letters saying that the U.S. has the best
health care in the world. This is not true.
According to the World Health Organization's ranking of
health care systems, the U.S. is 37th. That is two spots
above Cuba. The top of the list are European countries that
have a national health care system.

Paying for the best

The U.S. may have the best care that money can buy, but
that is a completely different issue. World dignitaries come
to this county for health care, as they have the money to pay
for anything they want.
Unfortunately, 99.9 percent of the U.S. population does
not have that kind of money.

Healthcare for all

It's time to have a health care system for all the people. A
person should not have to go without care or medication
because they have fallen into a situation where they have
no coverage.
President Obama's plan for a government-run health care
system is clearly failing in the court of public opinion. It is
encouraging that our citizens have decided they want to
take care of their own health care rather than have the gov-
ernment control relationships between them and their doc-
tor.
Americans are not buying the efforts to repackage this
plan to make it more acceptable.

Tax sweets, too

Now we have citizens who are claiming that a tax on soda
and other fatty, sugary drinks discriminates against citizens
in a free society telling them what isn't healthy and what we

Preparing yourself for flu season


his year, the flu is too
big for just one
column. This week,
I'll cover the seasonal flu,
the one we get shots for
each year. Next week, I'll
cover the H1N1 or swine
flu.
Influenza is a serious
disease and you should
take it seriously. According
to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, it
causes more than 36,000
deaths a year, mostly
among the elderly.
Flu season runs from
November to April; begin-
ning in September or
October, flu shots should be
available to people at high
risk. The best time to get
vaccinated is in October
and November, because it
takes about two weeks for
your body to begin to
produce antibodies to fight
the flu.
However, even if you
don't get a vaccine until
later in the season, you can
still benefit from it, as
Florida typically has a flu
season that begins later
than the seasons in some
other states.
Many chain stores offer
flu shots; you can also
check with your physician,
the Visiting Nurses Associa-
tion and county health
departments.


Preventing the flu

According to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention, the single best
way to prevent the flu is to
get a flu vaccine. There are
three antiviral medications
approved for flu prevention
and early treatment, but
they are only available by
prescription.
Consult your physician to
see if they are appropriate
for you. They must be
started within two days of
the illness' onset, so seek
medical care early on if you
think you have the flu.
Good health habits may
also help prevent the
spread of the flu. These
include:
Covering your nose and
mouth with a tissue when
you cough or sneeze, and
discarding the tissue after
use.
Washing your hands
often with soap and water,
especially after you cough
or sneeze. If you are not
near water, use an alcohol-


based hand cleaner, sold in
many stores. Wash your
hands for 10-15 seconds,
rinse well, and dry.
Stay away from people
who are sick whenever
possible.
If you get the flu, stay
home from work or school.
Try not to touch your
eyes, nose or mouth. Germs
are often spread this way.

The flu shot

The flu shot is an inacti-
vated vaccine containing
killed virus. It is approved
for use for those older than
6 months. The nasal-spray
flu vaccine contains
weakened virus and is
given by a nasal sprayer. It
has only been approved for
use in those ages 5-49. Both
vaccines cause antibodies
to develop in the body and
the antibodies protect
against the influenza virus.
Susan Smith, spokes-
woman for the Florida
Department of Health,
urges people to plan ahead,
practice good hygiene and
be considerate of others.
'All throughout the year,
but especially during the flu
season, we encourage all
Floridians, both adults and
children, to maintain
proper hygiene and health
habits. Washing one's hands


on a regular basis is the
foundation of keeping
germs out of the body. Keep
your hands away from your
mouth, nose and eyes in
order to ensure that you're
not placing those germs on
your face. If you must
sneeze or cough, do so into
your arm or a tissue so that
you don't transfer germs to
your hands. Stay home if
you're not feeling well. You
won't be able to work to
your full potential and you
run the risk of making
others sick, as well."
The following groups are
considered at high risk by
the CDC and are urged to
get vaccinated before the
end of October whenever
possible:
Children ages 6 months
to 19 years
Persons ages 50 and
older
Residents of long-term
care facilities
Persons of any age with
chronic medical conditions
Pregnant women
Health care workers
who provide direct patient
care
People living with a
person in a high-risk group,
or caregivers who come to
the homes of high-risk
individuals

Understanding Web browsers


Ubiq.ui-tous (pro-
nounced \yii-bi-
kw?-t?s\): adjective:
existing or being every-
where at the same time;
constantly encountered;
widespread.
If ever there were some-
thing worthy of being
considered ubiquitous, I
would have to say Internet
Explorer certainly fits that
description.
You'll find a copy of
Internet Explorer in one
form or another on just
about every PC out there
and you may even find a
copy on Macs.
Ask many users what that
"blue 'e'" is on their
desktop and more often
than not you'll hear
something like "Oh, that's
my Internet" or "that's the
Internet."
A slightly more seasoned
computer user might reply
with "that's Internet
Explorer, myWeb browser."
OK, so the guy who said
it was his Web browser is

right but what does it
matter? What's the benefit
of knowing the difference? I
mean, is it worth the time
to even sort out?
For that I would have to
say yeah, I think it's worth
the time to understanding
the difference. You see,
Internet Explorer really
isn't the Internet, anymore
than your living room
window is "the outside."
You could say you look
through Internet Explorer
and see out into the
Internet, similar to the way
you look through the
window to see outside.
Or, you could think of
Internet Explorer as kind of
TV for the Internet, only in
Internet Explorer you go to
differentWeb sites instead
of different channels.


So if Internet Explorer is
just a tool that lets you see
the Internet, then it would
stand to reason there are
other programs that will let
you do the same thing. And
yes, there are other pro-
grams that do the same
thing, lots of them.
There are actually a
bunch of different Web
browsers out there with
Internet Explorer holding
the top spot and a program
named Mozilla Firefox in
the No. 2 slot.
Ask someone what that
Mozilla Firefox icon is and
you may hear something
like "Oh, that's my other
Internet. It's not the same
as the other one."
And in a way, that's right.
Firefox isn't the same as
Internet Explorer like a
Magnavox TV isn't the same
as a Sanyo. But the Internet
that you look at with
Firefox is the same Internet
you look at with Internet
Explorer.
But (I know some of you
are thinking) why then, if


Firefox and Internet
Explorer both are looking
out at the same Internet,
do I see something totally
different when I launch
Firefox than I do when I
launch Internet Explorer?
The answer to that is
simply that the "start page"
or "home page" for each
program is probably set to
differentWeb sites. That
means you'll see different
pages on start up.
I know that can cause a
ton of confusion, so I
always try to make sure
both Firefox and Internet
Explorer have their start
pages set the same. Chang-
ing the start page is similar
in both programs and only
requires a few steps.
In Internet Explorer, click
the tools pull down menu
and then click Internet
options. A smaller page
should open with the
general tab selected. The

Want a cruise? Try a big ship with big shows


It seems the trend is
bigger, better, more.
What will they think of
next?
Well, the cruise lines all
have done their homework
when it comes to their
"new builds." When cruise
lines think about a new
ship they go back to their
past guests and ask, "What
would you like to see or do
on a cruise ship?" They get
answers and start putting
together a concept. This is
how Norwegian Cruise
Lines came up with the
original freestyle cruising
concept.
The rest of the industry
watched and waited to see
how it was received, which
came in the form of other
cruise lines offering some
type of dine as you wish
program. Some love it,
others prefer the tradition-
al set dining times, but for
the most part, it was well
received by avid cruisers.
Freestyle cruising is a
"do what you want, when
you want to do it" con-
cept. It is not only about
dining, it is also flexible in
accommodations, dress
code and overall activities.
It's just getting away from
the perceived rigidity of
traditional cruising.

Gas regulations

This is about all the gas stations with all dif-
ferent prices. I can't get over how all these sta-
tions do this. I'd hate for Obama to have to
come in and regulate gas prices. There are
some places where there are lines for the
pumps. And some places have really high
prices.
Why don't they regulate the prices?

Where's the money?

Where is all the tax and lottery money
going? A while ago, the government bor-
rowed money for health care. No wonder
they are broke. And school kids have to buy
many school supplies that they don't need.
Why must they have wipes for their desks?
Why can't they use paper towels? What are

'City Lights & Broadway Nights' on tap for Theatre-Go-Round


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH Dinner and a
show is a classic combination and
for those who enjoy dual pleasures,
you're in for a night of enjoyment.
Finding that perfect meal and an
entertaining live performance all in
one easily accessed location is even
better and Vero Beach-area residents
have just such a treat available.
Theatre-Go-Round Dinner The-
atre has announced its third
anniversary season, which opens
Sunday, Sept. 20 at the Best Western
Vero Beach Hotel, located on State


Road 60.
Artistic director Jon Putzke, well-
known in the Vero Beach area for his
years of involvement with local the-
ater, is enthusiastic about the begin-
ning of a new season.
"The support we've had has been
very overwhelming. It's such a fun
evening and I'm happy to see it's
moving forward again," Mr. Putzke
said.
Two previously successful seasons
featured sold-out performances of
musical comedies in the popular
"Nunsense" series of shows plus
other offerings.
"I think people are glad dinner


theatre is back after it had been gone
about 20 years," Mr. Putzke noted.
The season opener "City Lights &
Broadway Nights" is literally a
sparkling night of music, dance and
costumes, which will showcase more
than 63 hit songs from Broadway
musicals, as well as songs made pop-
ular by some of the entertainment
world's best-known singers.

See NOTES, B6


Aries-March 21-April 19
Consult your closest friends
before making big decisions.
You will achieve more suc-
cess. All top-level people
have trusted advisors. These
good souls are like booster
rockets to your plans. Magic
happens. It creates priorities,
respect and success. You are
now on the winning side of
life. Share the fun.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
You are on a positive roll. Life
has its ups and downs. Go
for the highs. Manage the
lows. Move forward toward
your dreams. Refuse to let
the world sidetrack you or
turn you in circles. Have pos-
itive expectancy. Now review
your progress. Make adjust-
ments as needed. Stay on
target. Victory is waiting just
ahead.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
If an idea doesn't work, it
either means the timing is
off, the universe is not bless-
ing it or it needs refinement.
Harmony is the guiding light.
All elements have to blend
to create a new form. Look at
your life and see how much
harmony you have. We can't
fight ourselves and win. Sur-
render the ego and find
peace.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Allow no room in your life for
sadness, fear, doubt or inde-
cision. Keep moving. Your
best time is in the moonlight.
This is when moon children
come out to play. How much
time do you take to play?
Your health and happiness
demand you do this. Listen
to your heart. It always tells
the truth and makes you
happy.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Keep a soft touch. You don't
have to be all things to all
people. Abundance is based
on how you feel inside. You
are a fire sign, ruled by the
light. We're not talking about
just money here. Wake up
feeling gratitude for all that
has been given. Ask for signs
of more to come. Sharing
now becomes the true joy of
life.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Take it a day at a time. Keep
releasing the past and focus-
ing on the future. The past,
plus the present, is what cre-
ates the future, you know.

Staycation


Stay and play


in Palm Bay


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com

PALM BAY Not many
cities have parks where you
can enjoy either skating,
skateboarding or the game of
paintball.
But Brevard County's
largest city does.
Helping Palm Bay earn its
description of being "A per-
fect place to grow" is its array
of recreational opportunities
for residents and visitors
alike.
For example, you can lace
up your inline or quad skates
at the outdoor rolling rink at
Liberty Park, 895 Carlyle
Avenue S.E.
At this smooth cement rink
with hockey boards, skaters
really get rolling during the
monthly "skate jam." This
free event features the latest
tunes and takes place from 6-
9 p.m. on the third Saturday
of every month, from Sep-
tember through May.
Skateboarders have two
places in Palm Bay where
they can practice and show
off their tricks: the urban
skate park at McGriff Park,
1146 DeGroodt Road S.W,
and Graffiti Skate Zone, 1502
Port Malabar Blvd.
The skate park at McGriff
Park features rails, ramps,
steps and a bowl, and its
design process included
input from local skaters. The
Graffiti Skate Zone not only
caters to skateboarders, but
inline skaters and freestyle
BMX racers as well.
And if shooting and trying
to avoid speeding pellets of
paint is more your style, head
to the Hurricane Paintball
Park, 770 Hurricane St. It's
open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on
Saturday.
A beautiful waterfront set-
ting for a picnic or for some
fishing is found at Castaway
Point Park, 2990 Bay Blvd.
N.E., which is north of Palm
Bay Road and east of U.S. 1.
This park has a nice stretch
of sandy beach along the
Indian River Lagoon. Picnic
tables and group shelters are
situated among palm trees,
including a leaning cabbage
palm that may have been the
source of Palm Bay's name.
For more information
about Palm Bay parks, call
(321) 952-3443.
Fans of an American clas-


sic will want to visit Space
Coast Harley-Davidson,
southeast of Palm Bay Road
and Interstate 95. It offers an
array of new and used
motorcycles for sale, as well
as recent-model Harley-
Davidsons for rent.
For more information, call
(321) 259-1311 or visit
www.spacecoastharley.com.
Along the city limits is the
family fun-packed Andretti
Thrill Park at 3960 Babcock
St., Melbourne. Thrill seekers
can ride go carts, play arcade
games and miniature golf and
much more.
For a casual bite to eat,
shopping and plenty of local
flavor, visit the Palm Bay
Farmer's and Flea Market. It
is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
on the second Saturday of
every month from Sep-
tember through May out-
side City Hall, 120 Malabar
Road.

Scopes
From page B1
You have command over your own uni-
verse when you listen to your inner
guidance first and then take action on
the outer side to create positive results.
This is life at its best.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct.22
You continue to grow spiritually, Libra.
You have been reborn in spirit. You are
of the light and unconditional love. You
refuse to let stress pull you out of your
light and balance. You are the real deal.
You are walking your talk. You are what
the real zodiac is all about; love, bal-
ance, healing, light, joy and peace.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Scorpio, you have wonderful inner
strength. Your personal appeal is emerg-
ing stronger than you may believe. Your
beautiful light shines stronger than ever
before. It's time to take some of this
powerful energy and direct it onto your
desires. You have earned it for all you
have given. Love and joy to you always.


Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Sagittarian souls need to help others
find happier life, joy in the soul, love in
the heart and a purpose in life. My dear
friend, Rainie Lewis, a Sag, just remind-
ed me of that. Come on, Sags of the
world. You can do it. It's your divine aim
and purpose. All the money in the world
will not create happiness unless you
share it.

Capricorn-Dec.22-Jan. 19
Pay a lot of attention to details now. It is
better to be prepared than scattered.
Stay balanced and focused on your
dreams and the universe will help you
succeed. Why? Because the supreme
law is like attracts like. You know what
you want. It's in your heart. Go for it and
receive the great harvest.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
As with Libra, balance is the key to your
happiness. Your strong ties to spirit
demand that you find quality time for
yourself. Your inner quest is stronger
than the outer. You continue to find new
direction in life. Work crossword puzzles.
It improves your memory, vocabulary


and gives motivation into your future.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Pisces is the last and deepest of the
zodiac signs. Thanks for being our rud-
der. You may never hear it in words, but
you give us a sense of direction about
how to navigate our waters (feelings) of
life. Without your guidance we would
have a risky journey. You are what heart
is all about. Thank you, thank you, thank
you.
