SEBASTIAN A tiny piece of B ethlehem is coming to Sebastian for the Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerces 23rd annual Light Up Night. The Sebastian tradition will continue this year and chamber directors are hoping even more businesses will participate. Br itney Faulke, information specialist for the chamber, said about 30 participating businesses have been the maximum in past years and she would love to see even more step up this year. Laura LaPorte, owner of LaPorte Fa rm s, will once again participate in the event adding a new element to her Christmas decorations with a living nativity scene. On Dec. 2 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p .m., rain or shine, residents will be able to go on a tour of area businesses and enjoy refreshments, contests and getting to know what the stores have to offer, just in time Staff photo by Jessica TuggleEddie Otera, center, was one of 31 children at Oslo Middle School to receive a new musical instrument thanks to a special grant by Fidelity Investments and Mr. Hollands Opus Foundation.

E xiting Councilman Eugene W olff was honored in a presentation during the meeting and May or Hill thanked him for his service. S ebastian is a better place because of you, Mayor Hill said. During the business portion of the meeting, the council entertained the first reading of an ordinance that sets parameters on the storage of junk in the city and moved it forward to a public hearing on Dec. 14. City manager Al Minner said there have been quite a few complaints about residents keeping items in open air storage, such as carports or any other structure that is not enclosed by four walls and a roof, and the items do not make the neighborhoods attractive. A ccording to the proposed ordinance, junk is defined as old and dilapidated motor vehicles, trailVERO BEACH E ddie Otera, a seventh-grade cellist in the O slo Middle School orchestra, went to school on Nov. 15 knowing hed be playing music with the other members of the orchestra, but he had no idea it would be with a brandnew cello.

Some criminal cases are unusual, humorous or just outright odd. And theres no shortage of them on the Treasure Coast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. In plain sight He re s a tip to criminals: Dont leave stolen goods in plain sight. In one case where a criminal didnt follow that advice, a Martin County man reported he used a credit card to buy gas. N ot long after, he discovered someone had used his credit card to buy a motor kit. He r eturned to the gasoline station and saw a bike with a motor on it. And it turned out that the bike belonged to the employee who ran his credit card. Video surveillance showed the employee using his cell phone camera to take a photo of the credit card. The employee was charged with credit card fraud and theft. In another Martin County case, an employee of a hotel saw some patio furniture in front of a residence across the street from a hotel. The furniture was identical to that which was stolen from the hotel. Mar tin County deputies arrived and saw some additional items on the porch. They also saw more furniture inside through a window.

Middle schoolers receive gift of music Fate of middle school remains uncertain INDIAN RIVER COUNTY With a renewed sense of urgency and desire for a plan of action, Indian River C ounty school district S uperintendent Fran A dams presented three options for relocating O sceola Magnet School in Ve ro Beach to Indian River C ounty school board members last week. T wo options are for building a new school, one on donated property in the P ointe West community or on donated property in W aterway Village, which is near Storm Grove Middle School. The third option calls for moving the magnet school to Dodgertown Elementary School and spreading those students to other area elementary schools. Ms. Adams said she would prepare a final recommendation for the school board on Dec. 13. Moving the magnet school to the current Dodgertown Elementary School would cost significantly less than building a new school, which is what the board was considering in their negotiations with developers at Pointe West since 2000. The estimated cost of moving to Dodgertown, a facility with more than 40 y ears of use, is $10.5 million. That amount includes building new wings to hold more students at Citrus Elementary School in Vero B each and Treasure Coast Elementary in Sebastian, and making renovations to Dodgertown Elementary ov er a five-year period. There is no question O sceola Magnet School needs to move out of its current structure. Relocating to the existing structure would save the district about $9.5 million, Ms. A dams said.

has the lowest student population of all county schools The population has been declining each year since 2006, district staff said. If the board were to choose that option, it would r equire district-wide rezoning to place the current students at Dodgertown Elementary to other elementary schools, but would allow Osceola Magnet School to stay as a magnet school. Going to Dodgertown Elementary would allow for the quickest move, with district staff projecting a move as quickly as summer 2012. The Pointe West negotiations have come to a total estimated cost of $20,267,000, which includes storm water retention and a loan to be paid off over a 20y ear period. Moving to the Pointe West location would mean agreeing to allow some preference and student access to students from the Pointe W est community, something school board member Kar en Disney-Brombach has said she would not support. Doing so would subvert the purpose and function of having a magnet school, she said. A dditional funds for storm-water retention are not projected in the cost for building a school site at W aterway Village, but would still include a 20-year debt service. The total estimated cost for construction at Waterway Village is $20 million. If Osceola Magnet School was moved to that location, it would retain its magnet school structure, staff said. B oth construction options would mean not moving Osceola Magnet School until 2013.

The living nativity at LaPorte Farms is sure to be a smash hit, with actors being provided by Riverside Church in Roseland and critters by the LaPorte Farm. This is the first time we are doing a living nativity, said Ms. LaPorte. W e are really stepping up (our Christmas) with the nativity this year. For Light Up Night, on one side we will have the nativity and on the other we will have Mrs. Claus and light r efreshments, Ms. LaPorte said. O ther businesses, including Sebastian River M edical Center and O ceanview Optical will open their doors to the public, show off their holiday dcor or holiday merchandise and meet residents. S ecret judges will be sent to participating businesses for evaluating their decor ations and bragging rights will go to four businesses for the whole year, said Ms. F aulk. E veryone is ready for the holiday and Light Up N ight is a good way to kick it into high gear, she said. Ms. LaPorte had a fiveperson crew setting up outdoor decorations all ov er her property last week and plans on having about 85,000 lights twinkling during the event and all through the season. The good thing about Light Up Night is that its kind of like a customer appreciation and a good way for the businesses to expand their customer base, Ms. Faulk said. S ometimes you drive r ight by some businesses and never stop in, she said. A map of all the participating businesses will be available at the chamber after Thanksgiving.

attention to a parade of 31 brand new string instruments with dark green bows that were brought into the r oom. The instruments were provided by Fidelity Investments of Vero Beach through the Mr. Hollands O pus Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing musical instruments to under-served schools and community programs. The children knew something different was going to happen when Matt McM anus, branch manager of Fidelity Investments called for a drumroll, which was met with resounding enthusiasm by all the students. As the 19 violins, 10 violas and two cellos were carried in by Fidelity staff, the children began to chatter excitedly among themselves and waved their hands high in the air for the opportunity to play the new instruments. Earlier in the day, orchestra director Richard B allinger worked to tune the instruments so they would be ready for the students to use upon presentation. The instruments were v alued at slightly more than $23,000, said Mr. Ballinger. This is like Christmas! E ddie said as he accepted the shiny reddish-brown cello and new bow. He stroked the cello with one hand and readied himself to play with the rest of the orchestra, about 90 children that day, his grin only lost when he began to concentrate on the music. This is my second year playing in the orchestra, E ddie said. I t looks beautiful. I thought we were just going to play a song. Man, was I wrong! he said with a laugh. S uperintendent Fran A dams said she was very happy the school received such a wonderful grant, and was one of only five in the country to receive such a gift. I congratulate them, she said. Mr. Ballinger said the new, better-sounding instruments often cause students to practice more and help them become even better musicians. I am so thankful and so grateful for this. I dont want to stop playing in orchestra, Eddie said. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 25, 2011 Sebastian River Area A3 11/30/1111/30/1111/30/1111/30/11Monday to Friday 9am-6pm Saturday 9am-5pm Most Vision Insurance Accepted PA YMENTPLANSTHRUCARECREDITMOSTPPO INSURANCEPLANSAREACCEPTEDNo Insurance?

A friend took her home and after getting some rest, the she r ealized she had left a damaged car in a parking lot. The woman then came up with the idea of reporting it stolen.

The funds will be used to support the Education Foundations S neaker Exchange program. The program keeps economically disadvantaged children on a path of learning by providing them a pair of durable sneakers to participate safely in all school activities, comfortably and proudly. Every public school in I ndian River County is served by this program. There are 55 scheduled exchanges for elementary students at Payless ShoeSource from S eptember through May. S econdary students receive vouchers that are redeemable for a new pair of sneakers. School coordinators help to identify children in need using the free and reduced lunch report. These funds are so important to the children we serve. Its a win-win situation for our students in need, as the money will provide 100 students a new pair of socks and sneakers, said Debbie Biedenharn, Education Foundation board member and program liaison. This is the first step in helping them to have a successful school day. A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of the TD Bank philosophy. TD Bank, Americas most convenient bank and the TD Charitable Foundation provide financial and other support to affordablehousing initiatives, financial literacy and education and the environment, many of which focus on improving the welfare of children and families. The Education Foundation of I ndian River County is a nonprofit organization that exists to link and engage business and community leaders in the process of supporting and strengthening education in Indian River County.

Computer repair is a tricky business. I never know what kind of problems I am going to be asked to solve and there is always the pressure to get it done quickly. Every call is a different challenge and most of the time it can take a half hour or more just looking around trying to get a handle on what's going on before the actual repairs even start. Vir us and malware cleanup calls usually always involve running one or more scans to "sweep" the computer for infected files and these scans can re ally run up the clock. There is nothing more frustrating than having to wait for a scan to complete and watching as the progress bar inches its way across the screen. The temptation to do other things while a scan is r unning is high, but if you do that on an already sick machine, it can just make matters worse. It's best to tackle additional tasks after an infection is cleaned. Let's face it, computer maintenance is expensive. At the typical hourly rate, one unexpected glitch such as a virus infection or r egistry problem can quickly add up to hundreds. And who's to say that next month it won't be something different? And, to add insult to injury, most of the issues that I regularly clean up wouldn't be an issue if people would just take the time to keep their machines properly maintained. "Everyone" knows that they should have their system backed up and their anti-virus up to date, but hardly anyone takes the time to learn how to do it properly, let alone do it every month! M ost computer manufacturers assume that everyone already knows what they need to do to keep their new machine maintained properly, but that can be an unreasonable assumption to make, especially if the new computer owner has little or no experience. And with computers as inexpensive as they are today, more people who have never used one are coming home with powerful systems that can confound even the most seasoned computer user. W ithout proper maintenance it's only a matter of time before something goes wrong and the repair bill can approach the price of a new machine! There's got to be a better way. W ouldn't it be smarter to have an expert set up your machine and then maintain it every month and avoid costly repairs? Doesn't it make sense to have someone who knows what they're doing keep regular tabs on things and nip problems in the bud rather than letting them grow to the point where an expensive service call is inevitable? W ell, I think it is, and I've spent the last couple of months putting together a program that does just that: gives regular computer users a way to keep their machines maintained on a r egular basis at a cost that won't break the bank. What I've put together here, a computer service club, if you will, is a way to offset the high cost of sudden repairs by performing regular monthly "check ups" to make sure things are r unning smoothly. This way we can stop little issues before they become big ones. We want to start out with a clean system, so when a person joins our club, we connect to their system and do a full tune up and get it r unning in tip top shape. Ev en if it's infected with viruses or malware, we'll clean it first. We'll even set up the backup system and make sure it's configured properly.

These same people want to work, even keep their jobs, and also want affordable housing not only for themselves, but for their families. Why is it they look the other way and not solve the problem? This is the reason why we have a bad reputation nationwide; they blame everyone else for their own ignorance. Dont forget about the little guyIn the day and age of Internet shopping, lets try to r emember to patronize our mom and pop businesses in order to keep them alive during this bad time. Small r estaurants also need our help. This area has almost no atmosphere and we do need to hang onto any of the neat, small restaurants weve got. Please eat an extra meal, if you can, at your favorite little hang-out.Concerned about school safetyMy daughter is currently a freshman at a local high school. In the last month, there have been a number of security issues at that school. A student was detained for assaulting a faculty member with a box cutter. On another occasion, there was a huge fight at a football game. I received a phone call from another parent, who urged me to pick my child up from school immediately, because a student had threatened to bring a gun to school. Last week, the school was on lock down because officials thought there was a criminal on school grounds. I know that school officials and the sheriffs department are doing all they can to keep my child safe, but I have to wonder if she is truly safe. I paid property taxes just like every home owner. I do not understand why there is not more security on the campuses. If we can afford metal detectors to protect our court houses, why can we not afford to protect our children? Remember Fannie Mae?Mor tgage giant Fannie Mae has just admitted that it lost an incredible $7.8 billion in the July-September quarter.Guess who is expected to cover their losses?They were egged on by the Dodd-Frank legislation, which is supported by the Obama administration. The really pathetic part is that they have obviously not learned their lessons.They have received $112 billion in taxpayer funds so far, the most expensive bailout in history, and they are continuing their absolutely insane policies.F rivolous law suit? An appeals court has ruled that a group of vegetarian H indus, who were inadvertently served meat at a M oghul Express, can sue the restaurant.Apparently, eating meat is forbidden by their religion. This decision is a prime example of lenient judges. Only in America do we permit such anout-of-control legal system.P otential or achievementW ashington and Tallahassee have poured billions into our public schools, but powerful teachers unions continue to stonewall teacher evaluations based on students academic proficiency. The education establishment recommends teachers nurture rather than challenge children in the classroom. M any schools embrace the concept of social promotion where pupils move ahead from grade to grade even if they cant read or do basic math. Liberals prefer a system where each child is evaluated on his or her potential, not on his or her actual achievement.No wonder test scores continue to decline.W orms in the woodpile?We suspected there were worms in the wood pile, and now we know who put them there. S tates have, for years, been prohibited from keeping illegal immigrants from the public schools. As a result, taxpayers have been forced to pay the costs of educating them. In 1982, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled states may not deny student access based on whether or not they are here legally. We should have known that liberal judges we re guilty of this outrage. They are the so-called honorable members of our S upreme Court. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

I t has lots of different parts that the kids will play, hippos, ducks, an older couple, dolls, S antas helpers, penguins and snowflakes, she said. M embers of the performing arts company class, made up of mostly older and more experienced acrobatic and aerial students, rehearse several times a week, working up a serious sweat with some of their stunts. Last week the students were working on the final number of the show, but that doesnt mean it will be an easy routine. The girls leaped and posed and trusted the boys to lift and twist them into exciting and intricate looking shapes to match the music. W e come up with a new show every couple of y ears. We want it to be more than a recital for the students, so its a production, said Patty Howard, assistant recreation director.

The Warriors came out in the game quickly, scoring 25 points in the first quarter, leaving the Sharks with a 16-point deficit. The Sharks offense was focused on attacking the net, using only a few key players to put points on the board. B obby Hain, a 6 foot 9 inch forward, scored 14 points in the first quarter. I feel like I did great, said Hain. We worked together and we worked w ell on offense and defense. The Warriors offense was focused on passing the ball and keeping their players in the center, guard and forward positions to score. S harks defense had a hard time against the two towers made by Hain and Grant Pelchen, who barely had to stick their hand up to make a dunk. S harks offense had a similar problem between the two Warrior players, using speed to overcome the players. This was a rough game, said Sharks head coach K elly OBrien. Were still waiting for some of our football players to join us. We played hard for 70-80 percent but we need to get to that 100 percent. O ur offense was stagnant and we got more into a one side and it was very easy to read. We need to work about getting more movement out of the ball. The Sharks never recovered from their deficit, though battled hard to catch up. The Warriors points on the board were spread out between players, with five out of six players on the court scoring. The Sharks had four of the eight Shark players score on the court in the second quarter. W e were trying to get everyone involved, said W arrior Kyle Case. Were a team and have been with each other awhile. The score was 46-24, with the Warriors winning, going into the second half. The Warriors offense was more focused going into the second half. The S harks kept attacking the net and shooting 3-pointers, instead of taking their time and bringing the ball to the net. Those shots were wasted, as they balls were recovered by the Warriors leading to points on their board. S harks Daniel McDonald, however, did score four 3-point shots during the game. I think I did better than I expected, said McDonald. W e needed to do 10 times better as a team. The game ended with the Warriors winning 7844, killing the clock after scoring 21 points in the fourth quarter. This is the second preseason game, said Warr iors head coach John Andersen. The guys who we re with me last year know whats going on and the new kids are still a little jittery. Were scoring and our defense needs to be cleaned up but we did w ell.

4Indian River CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Choose your own Christmas tree SEBASTIAN Decking the halls, r oasting chestnuts on an open fire and visions of dancing sugarplums dont have to be the only Christmas traditions observed in Indian River County this y ear. Christmas celebrations and wildlife conservation can go hand-in-hand this y ear with fresh-cut, all-natural Florida Christmas trees. J ane Schnee is opening her recently acquired property in Sebastian, which she purchased to preserve as a Florida scrub jay habitat, to the public so they can choose pine trees to cut down and use for their personal Christmas trees. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Ve ro Beach and other volunteers from the Pelican Island Audubon Society will be on hand to cut down the sand pine trees that people can choose on their trip to the nearly 11-acre property on B arber Street in front of Park Place, the manufactured home community on four dates before Christmas, Ms. Schnee said. I t will be like the pioneers used to do, Ms. Schnee said. V olunteers will be on hand to help cut down trees on Nov. 25 and 26 and Dec. 3 and Dec. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., she said. I thought it would be a great idea for Christmas and were doing it the weekend after Thanksgiving, which is when a lot of people want to put up their Christmas decorations, Ms. Schnee said. S and pines are slender with short, soft needles and small oval pinecones. They tend to lean in the direction of the strongest winds and are considered a native Florida Christmas tree because they were used as Christmas trees by early Florida settlers. The pine trees on the property, both slash pines and sand pines, have become quite plentiful and are limiting the scrub jays line of sight when they watch for predators on Ms. Schnees property, as well as taking up space they need for burying acorns to feed themselves during the winter when bugs are less plentiful, said Trish Adams of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office in Ve ro Beach. The public is welcome to come out and pick out their tree and take it home for free, although a $20 donation will give an individual a year-long membership to the Pelican Island Audubon S ociety, Ms. Adams said. The funds raised will be used for conservation efforts in Indian River County. By r emoving the trees from the property, a family will be joining in a historic F lorida Christmas tradition and helping make a Florida scrub jay habitat a safer and healthier environment, Ms. Schnee said.

9Indian River CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 It doesnt take a genius to figure out that one of the most popular gift-giving categories is electronics. J ust wander into Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving and check out the unruly mob of shoppers and the long lines at the checkout lanes. Lots of people like to give or receive gadgets for the holidays. B ut which one to choose? Its always a daunting question, even for the experienced gadget freak. Here are some guidelines that might help, from someone who has bought more than his share of cutting-edge electronics over the past 30 years. T ablets: No question about it. T ablets are the hottest thing out there these days and there are an increasing number to choose from. The two top sellers this year are likely to be two new 7-inch models: the Amazon Kindle Fire and the N ook Tablet from Barnes & Noble. B oth are Android-powered devices but the Nook boasts more storage 16GB versus 8GB on the Fire and is more expandable with a micro SD slot. The biggest appeal of these two new tablets will likely to be their low prices, $199 for the Fire and $249 for the Nook. No matter which one you choose, thats a real bargain compared to the industry-leading Apple iPad, which starts at about $500. The iPad has a bigger screen, is more powerful and probably is still the only choice for A pple fanatics. But if you just want to find out what the big deal is about tablets, and dont want to spend an arm and a leg, the Kindle Fire and N ook Tablet probably will be good choices. Both tablets will be capable of streaming HD video (albeit from different specific collections) and tapping into each stores respective music and print libraries, as well as r unning a special collection of apps. B oth are wi-fi only. No 3G option. Pr ices are dropping quickly on the many of the iPad wanna-bes out there, including the Samsung Galaxy Ta b, To shiba Thrive, Motorola Xoom, A cer Iconia and others.

The holiday season is usually packed with activities, shopping and food, all of which can be found at the two outdoor farmers markets in Vero Beach. Br imming with produce from local farmers and retailers, breads, pastries, juices, honey and even poultry, the local markets have a little bit of everything for a delicious dinner table when family comes to visit. The organic market in downtown Ve ro Beach is open on Fridays from 3 p .m. to 6 p.m. in Pocahontas Park. The ocean side farmers market on Ocean Dr ive is open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. W e had tried the organic market on S undays, but it wasnt a good time for anyone, said Kathleen Prouty, executive director of Main Street Vero Beach, organizers of the downtown market. W e had had success on Fridays before, so we decided to move it back to Fr idays and did it later in the afternoon so people can stop by after work, Ms. Pr outy said. The market is scheduled to end at 6 p .m., but sometimes the vendors stay out a little bit later, she said. The downtown market highlights organic products including locally grown produce and even has some produce grown using a hydroponic system, Ms. Prouty said. H ealthy foods, such as gluten-free cookies, desserts and other bakery items are available at the market, as w ell.

The Salvation Army provides hundreds of gifts, toys and holiday food boxes to families in need in Indian River County. W e are looking for people who want to spread the joy of Christmas to help us provide toys to children in need in our community, said Maj. Ver onica VanDenberg of the Salvation Army of Indian River County. N o child should go without a toy for Christmas and every family deserves a nice holiday meal to share on Christmas day. In 2010, the Salvation Army helped more than 994 children receive toys and food on Christmas. The Salvation Army is teaming up with JC Penney for an online giving program that provides people across the country with the ability to adopt angels from the S alvation Army in their local community. The website can be found at www.jcp.com/angel. To make a financial donation to the S alvation Army call (800) SAL-ARMY or mail a check to: The Salvation Army, P. O. Bo x 2864 Vero Beach FL 32961.

The Feed Everyone program helps the needy in Gifford twice a month. File photo of those to be quite a bit cheaper than a comparable iPad (although probably not as cheap as the Fire) after Thanksgiving, if not earlier. All run on the Android operating system, which will look and feel different from the custom-built versions of the same OS used on the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. Any of those larger tablets would be a good choice if you want a bigger screen than the Fire and Nook have, but dont want to spend the big bucks for an iPad. E xpect to pay between $300 and $450, depending on the size and features. M any tablets offer the same 3G option as the iPad, but the best advice is to skip that unless you are sure you need it. A tablet that can access the cellular network is not only more expensive on the front end, it costs the user $30 a month or more for a data plan. Wi-fi only tablets dont require a data plan. Also, you probably should avoid the no-name tablets. They may cost a lot less but theres a reason for that. Noname tablets are likely to suffer from poor reliability and build quality, dated or closed operating systems, and/or a lack of applications that will run on them. If price is no object, the iPad is still the best of the bunch. E-book readers: This was a hot category last year and is likely to be even hotter this year, again thanks to Amazon. It has cut the price on its base K indle e-reader to $79, about $50 less than last year. That model would be the best choice if you want the best deal and are a big reader. The black and white e-ink screen on the Kindle is easier on the eyes over the long haul than color models and is readable even in bright sunlight. If you want to spend a little more and like the idea of a touch screen, there are two good choices: for $99, you can get a touch-screen version of the Kindle or the competing Barnes & Noble Nook S imple Touch. Barnes & Noble recently slashed the price of its Nook by $40 so it can compete head-to-head with the K indle. These two readers are very similar so the decision comes down to personal taste. Study each model, including the libraries they can access, and choose the one you like the best. M ost color tablets can also be used as er eaders, but dont work as well as the dedicated black-and-white readers, whose e-ink display most closely mimic the printed page. Still, Barnes & Noble does make a color version of its Nook er eader and recently cut the price from $250 to $199. S martphones: These gadgets are always a popular choice for gift giving, since almost everyone can use one and new models seem to hit store shelves on almost a daily basis. Apples new iPhone 4S is a good choice for Apple fans and newcomers to the smartphone world, since the OS is arguably better than the many Android competitors and the apps are often more capable. And with prices starting around $199 (with two-year contract), it wont break the bank. Opt for the older, but almost as capable iPhone 4 if money is tight, it starts at $99, half the price of the 4S Or the even older iPhone 3GS, which in some cases, is free with a two-year contract. The iPhone 4 looks almost identical to the 4S but lacks the 4S internal improvements, including a faster processor and better camera. On the Android front, the choices are more numerous and complicated. Among the newest offerings is the S amsung Galaxy Nexus, due in midNovember and the first to run on the new Android 4 operating system code named Ice Cream Sandwich. This dualcore phone is 4G LTE capable, the fastest data service available, and has a larger screen than the iPhone. Prices have not been set but expect to pay between $200 and $300 (with contract) to have this latest and greatest smartphone. Other options include the lesspopular Windows-based and Blackberry phones. Steer clear of those unless y ou need any special features they may offer. Apple and Android are now the dominant players in the cell phone marketplace. F or those who dont need the latest technology but still want the convenience of a cell phone, consider a pay-asy ou go service such as Tracfone. If you dont need a lot of minutes or the most modern smart phone, you can get a y ears worth of cell phone service for less than $9 a month (you also have to buy the phone, which generally costs from $20 to $50). HDTV: Pr ices continue to fall on HDTVs, while the feature set improves. The sweet spot can found in the 46inch to 50-inch models, which are now going for as little as $500 and are likely to go even lower as the holidays approach. The price of 32-inch models is now routinely below $300. That could make HDTVs a good choice for gift giving this year. The big push this holiday season, however, will be the more expensive models with wired or wireless Internet connectivity, which is usually tied to aElectronicF rom page 9 See ELECTRONIC, 14

Pr oduce, plants and pet treats are also available at the ocean side market, providing gift ideas and items for the dinner table, Ms. Swartz said. H andmade home and garden decorative accessories could be an excellent, unique gift idea, and locally grown candied pecans make great stocking stuffers, she said.

These T Vs have built-in apps, similar to the ones found on smartphones. There are lots of different apps, but most consumers probably will focus on those that allow for the direct streaming of movies or TV shows, including H ulu, Vudu, Netflix, CinemaNow, B lockbuster and others. Y ou can also buy stand alone boxes from a variety of companies that do much the same thing or Blu-ray players that include the Smart TV feature. In concept, this is a good idea.

Hello, smart shoppers. Lets make an amazing Christmas appetizer. F or as far back as I can remember, artichokes were one of my favorite foods. If youve never had an artichoke, theres no time like Christmas to try one. Its not something served at many tables and they can be expensive, but it is a gourmet treat y ou must try. Artichokes are nutrient dense and high in fiber. If youre having a small intimate dinner, nothing can compare to stuffed artichokes. The ways I remember eating artichokes are stuffed, marinated or with oil and garlic. Every recipe Ive ever r ead has you dipping the leaves in either butter or hollandaise sauce. May onnaise and aioli are other popular choices. I think that if asked what one of my favorite things to do is, I would have to say teaching a little child how to eat an artichoke. Tr ivial? No. Sheer joy! If yo u ve never eaten one, come along with me and well learn how. The base, or heart, of the artichoke is the part you want to eat. Every time y ou pull a leaf off the base, it has a little piece of the delicious heart clinging to it. You do not eat the whole leaf; y ou put it between your teeth and then pull the leaf out, catching the pillow of flesh with your teeth. When my granddaughter, Meagan, was 2, she watched her daddy, Steve, eat an artichoke and reached out for it. When I asked her if she wanted to try one, she shook her head yes. How do you explain to a 2 year old that bite down does not mean hang on for dear life? She clamped her teeth down on that leaf as I struggled to pull it out of her mouth. Once she got a taste of the delicious flesh, though, she quickly learned the proper technique. Once all of the leaves have been pulled off and enjoyed, you are left with the choke and the heart. You never want to learn what the choke in artichoke really means. The inedible florets in the center of the vegetable will most definitely make you choke and must be removed. Getting to the artichoke heart is like getting to the prize at the bottom of a cereal box. It is superb and can be eaten out of hand or used in many dishes. You can also peel the stem, slice and cook it with the artichokes. Enjoy, see you next week!

24Indian River CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Holiday plant safety tips Hi, everybody. With the holidays getting into full swing, many of us are going to purchase one or more colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia. These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If you have pets that have a habit of chewing your plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the r eal thing and you can reuse them y ear after year. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe. U sing mistletoe as a decoration is a tradition that has been carried out for centuries. During Pa gan times, troops at war who met with the presence of mistletoe were r equired to lay down their weapons and unite in a day of truce. Mistletoe was also used during rituals that celebrated the winter solstice. It was used as a symbol of the eventual r eturn of the sun. In Christianity, mistletoe has been used as symbol of love ever since the M iddle Ages. During this era, mistletoe was blessed by a priest and all those who walked under it kissed as a sign of friendship and all bad feelings we re extinguished. In modern times, the tradition of being kissed under the mistletoe is still in full force. A trip to your local holiday shop will usually yield both live and artificial versions of this popular holiday plant. The live mistletoe plant is toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of small children and pets. As long as it is not ingested, this plant can still create a warm feeling of friendship to all who walk under it. Li ve Christmas trees. Although live trees are the main symbol of this great day, they can pose hazards if not handled and cared for properly. The main hazard from live trees is fire. When you first bring your tree home, be sure to cut a slice off the bottom before placing it in its new location. This will help the tree to absorb water faster, which will greatly lengthen its useful life. There are many products on the market that are labeled as tree savers that are useful in helping the tree to absorb water faster and over a longer period of time. It is important when choosing the location for your new tree to place it away from any heat sources or sparks. In the past, using faulty Christmas lights that either shorted out or sparked has caused most tree-related fires.

Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, Oh, thats great, Ill have to get in there, and then drive by months later and realize that I have y et to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen var ious advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when its locally o wned; its not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. Its personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. Without our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re, I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. Its nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local r estaurants only. Theres something to be said about walking into a place w here everyone knows your name. N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are o wned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. Because its not just business, its personal.

T oday, one of the best ways to stay safe is to use the new LED lights that are available for decorating. They look great and besides running cooler than other lights, they also save you green. They use a fraction of the power of conventional lighting methods. U se only UL-approved extension cords and power strips. Using LED lights will not create as much as a load on your extension cords and power adapters. W ith the availability of a large selection of artificial trees, for many people this will be a great alternative to the live tree. Most are now in three pieces with all the lights already attached and they last year after year saving you lots of money over time. As you can see, with some common sense practices, you can stay safe this holiday season.

Just in case you are stumped on what to get that special golfer on your holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Bruce Sizemore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke ( www.superstrokeusa.com), the company with the oversize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the Super Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. Y ou can even custom build your own r ight on the website for an even more perfect fit. If you know someone whos not swing the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edges ( www.touredge.com) new Bazooka HT Max-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots. The deep face, huge sweet spot and advanced w eighting technology combine to deliver explosive power and accuracy. B est of all, the driver retails for under $150 and the fairways under $120 and come with Tour Edges lifetime warranty and a 30-day performance guarantee. If your golfer loves to travel, the D atrek Golfs (www.datrekgolf.com) three-piece travel set may be the perfect gift. The set includes a golf bag travel cover with wheels, a duffle bag and a shoe bag for under $100. The travel cover features lots of padding and extra pockets and also has in-line skate wheels for a smooth, easy r oll. The duffle bag is just the right size for a carry-on. Ev ery golfer could use some practice. I mproving you putting is the quickest way to lower your score. Fan Mats and T our Links (www.TourLinks.net) has combined the logo from your favorite professional team, or college or military branch into its new line of putting greens. These greens feature club speed turf with adjustable breaks and two regulation cups and pins. The 4-foot by 10foot green is ready for use in any indoor or outdoor space. Molded from high impact polymers, the patented design makes installation a snap. K angarila (www.kangarila.com ) is a new way of playing golf that will add an extra level of fun or frustration to your game. In this game the balls act as dice. The balls are printed with the names of different clubs such as wedge or iron. You tee off and hit your Kangarila golf ball. When you arrive at the ball, the side facing up will tell you which club y ou must use for your next shot. It s a great way to add some fun and improve on your shot-making skills. You can even just choose one or two holes each round where you play the KangariGOLFJAMES STAMMER See G OLF, 27

la balls. While we dont experience snow and seldom see freezing temperatures for any extended period of time, we Floridians still need jackets and sweaters. A bacus Apparel ( www.abacusoutdoor.com ) is the company that outfitted the European Solheim C up team. Its new pebble fleece jacket is perfect for those cool days that we see in the winter here. The soft, warm polyester fleece features a full-length front zipper and flat-lock seams that allow you to stay warm and unrestricted while swinging. The newest apparel from S unice (www.sunice.com), outfitter to the U.S. Solheim Cup team, is its Typhoon Collection. The company has added the benefit of full-stretch to this line. Now in addition to a breathable, lightweight, quieter performance fabric, you get the benefit of a garment that stretches with you while keeping the wind and rain away. B ooks are another great gift idea. Stuart resident Judy Alvarez is a world renowned golf instructor and Golf Digest Florida top 15 teacher. She has trained PGA and LPGA professionals, conducted seminars, clinics and more. H er new book Broken Tees and Mended Hearts is an inspirational read. In the book she talks of her experiences working as an instructor for veterans and civilians with disabilities. It is available at most book stores, golf shops and through her website at www.JudyAlvarez.com. F inally, there is always a gift certificate for a round of golf or even a cap or shirt from their favorite course. Some of the more famous courses in the country will even ship hats and shirts to y ou if you call them and place an order with your credit card. Whatever you decide Im sure the golfer on your list will love the thought that went into it. Just be sure to avoid the topless lady tees!

S tick with a name brand, such as Garmin, Tom-Tom or M agellan and go for at least a 4.3-inch screen. The larger 5inch screens dont cost a lot more so if you like the idea of a bigger screen, go for it. S peech recognition, which allows you to control the device with voice commands, also is a convenient feature, but sometimes it is not well implemented. Check online r eviews before you buy. Lifetime maps and traffic service are also are desirable features if you plan to keep the GPS unit for more than a y ear. O dds and ends: If you or someone you know suffers from remote control clutter, solve it with a unified remote that allows you control everything with one device. I have tried lots of them but the best I have found is the Har mony One from Logitech. It handles up to 15 devices and all programming is done via the Harmony One W eb site, so there are no frustrating multi-number codes to enter. And when y ou are done, its easy to start y our TV, stereo receiver, cable box, DVD or Blu-ray player and gaming devices with one touch. The customizable LCD touch screen on the Harmony One is activity based. So to watch TV you simply choose watch TV and all the correct devices come on with all the right settings. Ditto for playing video games or playing a DVD. The Harmony One is not cheap, between $150 and $200, and the setup can be challenging. But it can save y ou a lot of headaches and allow you to shove all those other remote controls into a drawer somewhere. (Harmony also makes less expensive versions starting at around $30 that can be programmed online.) Another good inexpensive gift for someone who has an iPod or other music device that supports Bluetooth is a good pair of wireless Bluetooth stereo headphones. Ev eryone who has ever used earbuds knows the cord that connects the earpieces to the player can be a pain. Bluetooth headphones, which cost between $30 and $100, allow you to get rid of the cord, without loss of sound quality. Shop online for the best selection and price, since these gadgets are scarce and expensive in most area retail stores.

Ken Barrett and granddaughter, Kallissa, watch as the annual Christmas parade moved north along Ocean Drive last December. Dozens of floats, emergency vehicles and the VBHS Marching Band helped kick off the holiday season in style. Other tipsThere are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage of papers so theres no waste. Use ribbon to dress up a gift and direct the eye away from any imperfections. Keep a stack of paper scraps and use it instead of tissue paper to fill in gift bags. Keep scissors sharp for clean cuts. Pack smaller items or oddly shaped things into a different container that is easier to wrap. Roll up clothing and place into a paper towel tube to turn the wrapping into a candy cane shaped gift. Pr actice often makes perfect when it comes to wrapping gifts. Having the r ight paper, a few decorative supplies and some patience can ensure that gifts look festive this year. Wr appingF rom page 30 beyond? Of course, there are no ironclad r ules when it comes to tipping or gifting others during the holidays. For example, many people don't find it necessary to tip their auto mechanic come the holidays for the same reasons you wouldn't tip an attorney. B oth are already well compensated, and an extra tip is not necessary. How ever, if your auto mechanic saved your car from the scrap heap or provided service that is above and beyond what you have a right to expect, then perhaps a tip or a thoughtful gift is in order. When the holiday season arrives, generosity often reigns. But men and women should not feel obligated to tip or gift every person in their lives.

File photo Gift wrapping tricks and tips The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping r ush is over, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are gift-wrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. R egardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how.PrepareThe first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small rooms as gift-wrap stations. While you dont have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to r ecipient and have any gift receipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote your attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home.P aper or bags?When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. However, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. Thats because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when youre rolling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means youll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when youre short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a var iety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient.Metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News See WRAPPING, 28 C ome the holiday season, most people find themselves in a giving mood. Gifting friends, family and even coworkers is common, but there are many other people in our daily lives who societal norms suggest deserve a gift as well. H oliday tipping is more common in certain areas than others, but there are a few questions men and women can ask themselves when trying to decide if a person in their lives deserves a holiday tip or gift. How often do you see the person? How frequently you see a person can help determine if that person deserves a holiday gift or tip. For example, a child's babysitter or nanny deserves a little something extra come the holidays because you likely see that person on a regular basis. The same goes for the postman or a dog walker. Men and women you rar ely see or rarely need do not warr ant a tip or gift. Where do you live? Where a person lives also goes a long way toward determining a holiday tip or gift. People who live in apartments should show their appreciation to the doorman and building superintendent with a tip or gift. Ho meowners need not tip their local handyman, however, even if he performs the same tasks as a building superintendent. Homeowners tend to do more of their own fix-ups around the house, while apartment dwellers often rely on the super to keep their apartment in tip-top shape. Is the person a professional? M en and women who provide professional services, such as accountants, lawyers and doctors, do not warrant a tip during the holidays. These professionals are already paid handsomely for their services, and many might even gift their customers. For those who have an especially strong relationship with their accountant, lawyer, etc., perhaps a gift such as a bottle of wine might be a nice gesture. But it's certainly not mandatory.

SEBASTIAN A tiny piece of B ethlehem is coming to Sebastian for the Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce's 23rd annual Light Up Night. The Sebastian tradition will continue this year and chamber directors are hoping even more businesses will participate. Br itney Faulke, information specialist for the chamber, said about 30 participating businesses have been the maximum in past years and she would love to see even more step up this year. Laura LaPorte, owner of LaPorte Fa rm s, will once again participate in the event adding a new element to her Christmas decorations with a living nativity scene. On Dec. 2 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p .m., rain or shine, residents will be able to go on a tour of area businesses and enjoy refreshments, contests and getting to know what the stores have to offer, just in time Staff photo by Jessica TuggleEddie Otera, center, was one of 31 children at Oslo Middle School to receive a new musical instrument thanks to a special grant by Fidelity Investments and Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation.

E xiting Councilman Eugene W olff was honored in a presentation during the meeting and Ma y or Hill thanked him for his service. "S ebastian is a better place because of you," Mayor Hill said. During the business portion of the meeting, the council entertained the first reading of an ordinance that sets parameters on the storage of "junk" in the city and moved it forward to a public hearing on Dec. 14. City manager Al Minner said there have been quite a few complaints about residents keeping items in "open air storage," such as carports or any other structure that is not enclosed by four walls and a roof, and the items do not make the neighborhoods attractive.

In plain sight He re 's a tip to criminals: Don't leave stolen goods in plain sight. In one case where a criminal didn't follow that advice, a Martin County man reported he used a credit card to buy gas. N ot long after, he discovered someone had used his credit card to buy a motor kit. He r eturned to the gasoline station and saw a bike with a motor on it. And it turned out that the bike belonged to the employee who ran his credit card. Video surveillance showed the employee using his cell phone camera to take a photo of the credit card. The employee was charged with credit card fraud and theft. In another Martin County case, an employee of a hotel saw some patio furniture in front of a residence across the street from a hotel. The furniture was identical to that which was stolen from the hotel. Ma r tin County deputies arrived and saw some additional items on the porch. They also saw more furniture inside through a window.

Middle schoolers receive gift of music Fate of middle school remains uncertain INDIAN RIVER COUNTY With a renewed sense of urgency and desire for a plan of action, Indian River C ounty school district S uperintendent Fran A dams presented three options for relocating O sceola Magnet School in Ve ro B each to Indian River C ounty school board members last week. T wo options are for building a new school, one on donated property in the P ointe West community or on donated property in W aterway Village, which is near Storm Grove Middle School. The third option calls for moving the magnet school to Dodgertown Elementary School and spreading those students to other area elementary schools. Ms. Adams said she would prepare a final recommendation for the school board on Dec. 13. Mo ving the magnet school to the current Dodgertown Elementary School would cost significantly less than building a new school, which is what the board was considering in their negotiations with developers at Pointe West since 2000. The estimated cost of moving to Dodgertown, a facility with more than 40 y ears of use, is $10.5 million. That amount includes building new wings to hold more students at Citrus Elementary School in Vero B each and Treasure Coast Elementary in Sebastian, and making renovations to Dodgertown Elementary ov er a five-year period. There is no question O sceola Magnet School needs to move out of its current structure. Relocating to the existing structure would save the district about $9.5 million, Ms. A dams said.

has the lowest student population of all county schools The population has been declining each year since 2006, district staff said. If the board were to choose that option, it would r equire district-wide rezoning to place the current students at Dodgertown Elementary to other elementary schools, but would allow Osceola Magnet School to stay as a magnet school. Going to Dodgertown Elementary would allow for the quickest move, with district staff projecting a move as quickly as summer 2012. The Pointe West negotiations have come to a total estimated cost of $20,267,000, which includes storm water retention and a loan to be paid off over a 20y ear period. Mo ving to the Pointe West location would mean agreeing to allow some preference and student access to students from the Pointe W est community, something school board member Ka r en Disney-Brombach has said she would not support. Doing so would subvert the purpose and function of having a magnet school, she said. A dditional funds for storm-water retention are not projected in the cost for building a school site at W aterway Village, but would still include a 20-year debt service. The total estimated cost for construction at Waterway Village is $20 million. If O sceola Magnet School was moved to that location, it would retain its magnet school structure, staff said. B oth construction options would mean not moving Osceola Magnet School until 2013.

The living nativity at LaPorte Farms is sure to be a smash hit, with actors being provided by Riverside Church in Roseland and "critters" by the LaPorte Farm. This is the first time we are doing a living nativity," said Ms. LaPorte. "W e are really stepping up (our Christmas) with the nativity this year. For Light Up Night, on one side we will have the nativity and on the other we will have Mrs. Claus and light r efreshments," Ms. LaPorte said. O ther businesses, including Sebastian River M edical Center and O ceanview Optical will open their doors to the public, show off their holiday dŽcor or holiday merchandise and meet residents. S ecret judges will be sent to participating businesses for evaluating their decor ations and bragging rights will go to four businesses for the whole year, said Ms. F aulk. "E veryone is ready for the holiday and Light Up N ight is a good way to kick it into high gear," she said. Ms. LaPorte had a fiveperson crew setting up outdoor decorations all ov er her property last week and plans on having about 85,000 lights twinkling during the event and all through the season. The good thing about Light Up Night is that it's kind of like a customer appreciation and a good way for the businesses to expand their customer base," Ms. Faulk said. "S ometimes you drive r ight by some businesses and never stop in," she said. A map of all the participating businesses will be available at the chamber after Thanksgiving.

attention to a parade of 31 brand new string instruments with dark green bows that were brought into the r oom. The instruments were provided by Fidelity Investments of Vero Beach through the Mr. Holland's O pus Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing musical instruments to under-served schools and community programs. The children knew something different was going to happen when Matt Mc M anus, branch manager of Fidelity Investments called for a drumroll, which was met with resounding enthusiasm by all the students. As the 19 violins, 10 violas and two cellos were carried in by Fidelity staff, the children began to chatter excitedly among themselves and waved their hands high in the air for the opportunity to play the new instruments. Earlier in the day, orchestra director Richard B allinger worked to tune the instruments so they would be ready for the students to use upon presentation. The instruments were v alued at slightly more than $23,000, said Mr. Ballinger. This is like Christmas!" E ddie said as he accepted the shiny reddish-brown cello and new bow. He stroked the cello with one hand and readied himself to play with the rest of the orchestra, about 90 children that day, his grin only lost when he began to concentrate on the music. This is my second year playing in the orchestra," E ddie said. "I t looks beautiful. I thought we were just going to play a song. Man, was I wrong!" he said with a laugh. S uperintendent Fran A dams said she was very happy the school received such a wonderful grant, and was one of only five in the country to receive such a gift. "I congratulate them," she said. Mr. Ballinger said the new, better-sounding instruments often cause students to practice more and help them become even better musicians. "I am so thankful and so grateful for this. I don't want to stop playing in orchestra," Eddie said. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 25, 2011 Sebastian River Area A3 682120EXPIRES11/30/11EXPIRES11/30/11EXPIRES11/30/11EXPIRES11/30/11Monday to Friday 9am-6pm Saturday 9am-5pm Most Vision Insurance Accepted PA YMENTPLANSTHRUCARECREDITMOSTPPO INSURANCEPLANSAREACCEPTEDNo Insurance?

A friend took her home and after getting some rest, the she r ealized she had left a damaged car in a parking lot. The woman then came up with the idea of reporting it stolen. B ut after the friend would not go along with the story and told police what happened, the woman admitted to making a false report. What am I going to get for being a dumbass?" the woman asked police as she was being arrested. "I was driving; the r oad was wet; I crashed. I should have told the truth."

The funds will be used to support the Education Foundation's S neaker Exchange program. The program keeps economically disadvantaged children on a path of learning by providing them a pair of durable sneakers to participate safely in all school activities, comfortably and proudly. Every public school in I ndian River County is served by this program. There are 55 scheduled exchanges for elementary students at Payless ShoeSource from S eptember through May. S econdary students receive vouchers that are redeemable for a new pair of sneakers. School coordinators help to identify children in need using the free and reduced lunch report. These funds are so important to the children we serve. It's a win-win situation for our students in need, as the money will provide 100 students a new pair of socks and sneakers," said Debbie Biedenharn, Education Foundation board member and program liaison. This is the first step in helping them to have a successful school day." A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of the TD Bank philosophy. TD Bank, America's most convenient bank and the TD Charitable Foundation provide financial and other support to affordablehousing initiatives, financial literacy and education and the environment, many of which focus on improving the welfare of children and families. The Education Foundation of I ndian River County is a nonprofit organization that exists to link and engage business and community leaders in the process of supporting and strengthening education in Indian River County.

Computer repair is a tricky business. I never know what kind of problems I am going to be asked to solve and there is always the pressure to get it done quickly. Every call is a different challenge and most of the time it can take a half hour or more just looking around trying to get a handle on what's going on before the actual repairs even start. Vi r us and malware cleanup calls usually always involve running one or more scans to "sweep" the computer for infected files and these scans can re ally run up the clock. There is nothing more frustrating than having to wait for a scan to complete and watching as the progress bar inches its way across the screen. The temptation to do other things while a scan is r unning is high, but if you do that on an already sick machine, it can just make matters worse. It's best to tackle additional tasks after an infection is cleaned. Let's face it, computer maintenance is expensive. At the typical hourly rate, one unexpected glitch such as a virus infection or r egistry problem can quickly add up to hundreds. And who's to say that next month it won't be something different? And, to add insult to injury, most of the issues that I regularly clean up wouldn't be an issue if people would just take the time to keep their machines properly maintained. "Everyone" knows that they should have their system backed up and their anti-virus up to date, but hardly anyone takes the time to learn how to do it properly, let alone do it every month! M ost computer manufacturers assume that everyone already knows what they need to do to keep their new machine maintained properly, but that can be an unreasonable assumption to make, especially if the new computer owner has little or no experience. And with computers as inexpensive as they are today, more people who have never used one are coming home with powerful systems that can confound even the most seasoned computer user. W ithout proper maintenance it's only a matter of time before something goes wrong and the repair bill can approach the price of a new machine! There's got to be a better way. W ouldn't it be smarter to have an expert set up your machine and then maintain it every month and avoid costly repairs? Doesn't it make sense to have someone who knows what they're doing keep regular tabs on things and nip problems in the bud rather than letting them grow to the point where an expensive service call is inevitable? W ell, I think it is, and I've spent the last couple of months putting together a program that does just that: gives regular computer users a way to keep their machines maintained on a r egular basis at a cost that won't break the bank. What I've put together here, a computer service club, if you will, is a way to offset the high cost of sudden repairs by performing regular monthly "check ups" to make sure things are r unning smoothly. This way we can stop little issues before they become big ones. We want to start out with a clean system, so when a person joins our club, we connect to their system and do a full tune up and get it r unning in tip top shape. Ev en if it's infected with viruses or malware, we'll clean it first. We'll even set up the backup system and make sure it's configured properly.

How come it so hard for both counties to create work and affordable housing? There are people out of work or about to lose their jobs and be put out on the street and become homeless. By creating work and affordable housing the counties can all but eliminate homelessness. These same people want to work, even keep their jobs, and also want affordable housing not only for themselves, but for their families. Why is it they look the other way and not solve the problem? This is the reason why we have a bad reputation nationwide; they blame everyone else for their own ignorance. Don't forget about the little guyIn the day and age of Internet shopping, let's try to r emember to patronize our mom and pop businesses in order to keep them alive during this bad time. Small r estaurants also need our help. This area has almost no atmosphere and we do need to hang onto any of the neat, small restaurants we've got. Please eat an extra meal, if you can, at your favorite little hang-out.Concerned about school safetyMy daughter is currently a freshman at a local high school. In the last month, there have been a number of security issues at that school. A student was detained for assaulting a faculty member with a box cutter. On another occasion, there was a huge fight at a football game. I received a phone call from another parent, who urged me to pick my child up from school immediately, because a student had threatened to bring a gun to school. Last week, the school was on "lock down" because officials thought there was a criminal on school grounds. I know that school officials and the sheriff's department are doing all they can to keep my child safe, but I have to wonder if she is truly safe. I paid property taxes just like every home owner. I do not understand why there is not more security on the campuses. If we can afford metal detectors to protect our court houses, why can we not afford to protect our children? Remember Fannie Mae?Mo r tgage giant Fannie Mae has just admitted that it lost an incredible $7.8 billion in the July-September quarter.Guess who is expected to cover their losses?They were egged on by the Dodd-Frank legislation, which is supported by the Obama administration. The really pathetic part is that they have obviously not learned their lessons.They have received $112 billion in taxpayer funds so far, the most expensive bailout in history, and they are continuing their absolutely insane policies.F rivolous law suit? An appeals court has ruled that a group of vegetarian H indus, who were inadvertently served meat at a M oghul Express, can sue the restaurant.Apparently, eating meat is forbidden by their religion. This decision is a prime example of lenient judges. Only in America do we permit such anout-of-control legal system.P otential or achievementW ashington and Tallahassee have poured billions into our public schools, but powerful teachers' unions continue to stonewall teacher evaluations based on students' academic proficiency. The education establishment recommends teachers nurture rather than challenge children in the classroom. M any schools embrace the concept of social promotion where pupils move ahead from grade to grade even if they can't read or do basic math. Liberals prefer a system where each child is evaluated on his or her potential, not on his or her actual achievement.No wonder test scores continue to decline.W orms in the woodpile?We suspected there were worms in the wood pile, and now we know who put them there. S tates have, for years, been prohibited from keeping illegal immigrants from the public schools. As a result, taxpayers have been forced to pay the costs of educating them. In 1982, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled states may not deny student access based on whether or not they are here legally. We should have known that liberal judges we re guilty of this outrage. They are the so-called "honorable" members of our S upreme Court. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

On Dec. 18 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., the 200 children in the gymnastics, dance and aerial programs offered by the city r ecreation department will present "The Christmas Puzzle," an original performing arts holiday production at the Vero B each High School Performing Arts Center. There is a story and in each part they will find a puzzle piece," said Angie H olshouser a supervisor with the recreation department. "I t has lots of different parts that the kids will play, hippos, ducks, an older couple, dolls, S anta's helpers, penguins and snowflakes," she said. M embers of the performing arts company class, made up of mostly older and more experienced acrobatic and aerial students, rehearse several times a week, working up a serious sweat with some of their stunts. Last week the students were working on the final number of the show, but that doesn't mean it will be an easy routine. The girls leaped and posed and trusted the boys to lift and twist them into exciting and intricate looking shapes to match the music. "W e come up with a new show every couple of y ears. We want it to be more than a recital for the students, so it's a production," said Patty Ho ward, assistant recreation director.

The Warriors came out in the game quickly, scoring 25 points in the first quarter, leaving the Sharks with a 16-point deficit. The Sharks offense was focused on attacking the net, using only a few key players to put points on the board. B obby Hain, a 6 foot 9 inch forward, scored 14 points in the first quarter. "I feel like I did great," said Hain. "We worked together and we worked w ell on offense and defense." The Warriors offense was focused on passing the ball and keeping their players in the center, guard and forward positions to score. S harks defense had a hard time against the two towers made by Hain and Grant Pelchen, who barely had to stick their hand up to make a dunk. S harks offense had a similar problem between the two Warrior players, using speed to overcome the players. This was a rough game," said Shark's head coach K elly O'Brien. "We're still waiting for some of our football players to join us. We played hard for 70-80 percent but we need to get to that 100 percent." "O ur offense was stagnant and we got more into a one side and it was very easy to read. We need to work about getting more movement out of the ball." The Shark's never recovered from their deficit, though battled hard to catch up. The Warriors points on the board were spread out between players, with five out of six players on the court scoring. The Sharks had four of the eight Shark players score on the court in the second quarter. "W e were trying to get everyone involved," said W arrior Kyle Case. "We're a team and have been with each other awhile." The score was 46-24, with the Warriors winning, going into the second half. The Warriors offense was more focused going into the second half. The S harks kept attacking the net and shooting 3-pointers, instead of taking their time and bringing the ball to the net. Those shots were wasted, as they balls were recovered by the Warriors leading to points on their board. S hark's Daniel McDonald, however, did score four 3-point shots during the game. "I think I did better than I expected," said McDonald. "W e needed to do 10 times better as a team." The game ended with the Warriors winning 7844, killing the clock after scoring 21 points in the fourth quarter. This is the second preseason game," said Warr iors head coach John Andersen. "The guys who we re with me last year know what's going on and the new kids are still a little jittery. We're scoring and our defense needs to be cleaned up but we did w ell."

4Indian River CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Choose your own Christmas tree SEBASTIAN Decking the halls, r oasting chestnuts on an open fire and visions of dancing sugarplums don't have to be the only Christmas traditions observed in Indian River County this y ear. Christmas celebrations and wildlife conservation can go hand-in-hand this y ear with fresh-cut, all-natural Florida Christmas trees. J ane Schnee is opening her recently acquired property in Sebastian, which she purchased to preserve as a Florida scrub jay habitat, to the public so they can choose pine trees to cut down and use for their personal Christmas trees. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Ve ro B each and other volunteers from the Pelican Island Audubon Society will be on hand to cut down the sand pine trees that people can choose on their trip to the nearly 11-acre property on B arber Street in front of Park Place, the manufactured home community on four dates before Christmas, Ms. Schnee said. "I t will be like the pioneers used to do," Ms. Schnee said. V olunteers will be on hand to help cut down trees on Nov. 25 and 26 and Dec. 3 and Dec. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., she said. "I thought it would be a great idea for Christmas and we're doing it the weekend after Thanksgiving, which is when a lot of people want to put up their Christmas decorations," Ms. Schnee said. S and pines are slender with short, soft needles and small oval pinecones. They tend to lean in the direction of the strongest winds and are considered a native Florida Christmas tree because they were used as Christmas trees by early Florida settlers. The pine trees on the property, both slash pines and sand pines, have become quite plentiful and are limiting the scrub jay's line of sight when they watch for predators on Ms. Schnee's property, as well as taking up space they need for burying acorns to feed themselves during the winter when bugs are less plentiful, said Trish Adams of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office in Ve ro B each. The public is welcome to come out and pick out their tree and take it home for free, although a $20 donation will give an individual a year-long membership to the Pelican Island Audubon S ociety, Ms. Adams said. The funds raised will be used for conservation efforts in Indian River County. By r emoving the trees from the property, a family will be joining in a historic F lorida Christmas tradition and helping make a Florida scrub jay habitat a safer and healthier environment, Ms. Schnee said.

9Indian River CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 It doesn't take a genius to figure out that one of the most popular gift-giving categories is electronics. J ust wander into Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving and check out the unruly mob of shoppers and the long lines at the checkout lanes. Lots of people like to give or receive gadgets for the holidays. B ut which one to choose? It's always a daunting question, even for the experienced gadget freak. Here are some guidelines that might help, from someone who has bought more than his share of cutting-edge electronics over the past 30 years. T ablets: No question about it. T ablets are the hottest thing out there these days and there are an increasing number to choose from. The two top sellers this year are likely to be two new 7-inch models: the Amazon Kindle Fire and the N ook Tablet from Barnes & Noble. B oth are Android-powered devices but the Nook boasts more storage 16GB versus 8GB on the Fire and is more expandable with a micro SD slot. The biggest appeal of these two new tablets will likely to be their low prices, $199 for the Fire and $249 for the Nook. No matter which one you choose, that's a real bargain compared to the industry-leading Apple iPad, which starts at about $500. The iPad has a bigger screen, is more powerful and probably is still the only choice for A pple fanatics. But if you just want to find out what the big deal is about tablets, and don't want to spend an arm and a leg, the Kindle Fire and N ook Tablet probably will be good choices. Both tablets will be capable of streaming HD video (albeit from different specific collections) and tapping into each store's respective music and print libraries, as well as r unning a special collection of apps. B oth are wi-fi only. No 3G option. Pr ices are dropping quickly on the many of the iPad wanna-bes out there, including the Samsung Galaxy Ta b, To shiba Thrive, Motorola Xoom, A cer Iconia and others.

The holiday season is usually packed with activities, shopping and food, all of which can be found at the two outdoor farmer's markets in Vero Beach. Br imming with produce from local farmers and retailers, breads, pastries, juices, honey and even poultry, the local markets have a little bit of everything for a delicious dinner table when family comes to visit. The organic market in downtown Ve ro B each is open on Fridays from 3 p .m. to 6 p.m. in Pocahontas Park. The ocean side farmer's market on Ocean Dr ive is open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon. "W e had tried the organic market on S undays, but it wasn't a good time for anyone," said Kathleen Prouty, executive director of Main Street Vero Beach, organizers of the downtown market. "W e had had success on Fridays before, so we decided to move it back to Fr idays and did it later in the afternoon so people can stop by after work," Ms. Pr outy said. The market is scheduled to end at 6 p .m., but sometimes the vendors stay out a little bit later, she said. The downtown market highlights organic products including locally grown produce and even has some produce grown using a hydroponic system, Ms. Prouty said. H ealthy foods, such as gluten-free cookies, desserts and other bakery items are available at the market, as w ell.

The Salvation Army provides hundreds of gifts, toys and holiday food boxes to families in need in Indian River County. "W e are looking for people who want to spread the joy of Christmas to help us provide toys to children in need in our community," said Maj. Ve r onica VanDenberg of the Salvation Army of Indian River County. "N o child should go without a toy for Christmas and every family deserves a nice holiday meal to share on Christmas day." In 2010, the Salvation Army helped more than 994 children receive toys and food on Christmas. The Salvation Army is teaming up with JC Penney for an online giving program that provides people across the country with the ability to adopt angels from the S alvation Army in their local community. The website can be found at www.jcp.com/angel. To make a financial donation to the S alvation Army call (800) SAL-ARMY or mail a check to: The Salvation Army, P. O. Bo x 2864 Vero Beach FL 32961. Donate $10 by texting the keyword "give" to 85944. Angel trees can be found at several locations in Indian River County including Wal-Mart, The Indian River M all Sears, RBC Banks, Indian River Estates and The North County Library.

The Feed Everyone program helps the needy in Gifford twice a month. File photo of those to be quite a bit cheaper than a comparable iPad (although probably not as cheap as the Fire) after Thanksgiving, if not earlier. All run on the Android operating system, which will look and feel different from the custom-built versions of the same OS used on the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. Any of those larger tablets would be a good choice if you want a bigger screen than the Fire and Nook have, but don't want to spend the big bucks for an iPad. E xpect to pay between $300 and $450, depending on the size and features. M any tablets offer the same 3G option as the iPad, but the best advice is to skip that unless you are sure you need it. A tablet that can access the cellular network is not only more expensive on the front end, it costs the user $30 a month or more for a data plan. Wi-fi only tablets don't require a data plan. Also, you probably should avoid the no-name" tablets. They may cost a lot less but there's a reason for that. Noname tablets are likely to suffer from poor reliability and build quality, dated or closed operating systems, and/or a lack of applications that will run on them. If price is no object, the iPad is still the best of the bunch. E-book readers : This was a hot category last year and is likely to be even hotter this year, again thanks to Amazon. It has cut the price on its base K indle e-reader to $79, about $50 less than last year. That model would be the best choice if you want the best deal and are a big reader. The black and white e-ink screen on the Kindle is easier on the eyes over the long haul than color models and is readable even in bright sunlight. If y ou want to spend a little more and like the idea of a touch screen, there are two good choices: for $99, you can get a touch-screen version of the Kindle or the competing Barnes & Noble Nook S imple Touch. Barnes & Noble recently slashed the price of its Nook by $40 so it can compete head-to-head with the K indle. These two readers are very similar so the decision comes down to personal taste. Study each model, including the libraries they can access, and choose the one you like the best. M ost color tablets can also be used as er eaders, but don't work as well as the dedicated black-and-white readers, whose e-ink display most closely mimic the printed page. Still, Barnes & Noble does make a color version of its Nook er eader and recently cut the price from $250 to $199. S martphones: These gadgets are always a popular choice for gift giving, since almost everyone can use one and new models seem to hit store shelves on almost a daily basis. Apple's new iPhone 4S is a good choice for Apple fans and newcomers to the smartphone world, since the OS is arguably better than the many Android competitors and the apps are often more capable. And with prices starting around $199 (with two-year contract), it won't break the bank. Opt for the older, but almost as capable iPhone 4 if money is tight, it starts at $99, half the price of the 4S Or the even older iPhone 3GS, which in some cases, is free with a two-year contract. The iPhone 4 looks almost identical to the 4S but lacks the 4S internal improvements, including a faster processor and better camera. On the Android front, the choices are more numerous and complicated. Among the newest offerings is the S amsung Galaxy Nexus, due in midNo vember and the first to run on the new Android 4 operating system code named Ice Cream Sandwich. This dualcore phone is 4G LTE capable, the fastest data service available, and has a larger screen than the iPhone. Prices have not been set but expect to pay between $200 and $300 (with contract) to have this latest and greatest smartphone. Other options include the lesspopular Windows-based and Blackberry phones. Steer clear of those unless y ou need any special features they may offer. Apple and Android are now the dominant players in the cell phone marketplace. F or those who don't need the latest technology but still want the convenience of a cell phone, consider a pay-asy ou go service such as Tracfone. If you don't need a lot of minutes or the most modern smart phone, you can get a y ear's worth of cell phone service for less than $9 a month (you also have to buy the phone, which generally costs from $20 to $50). HDTV: Pr ices continue to fall on HDTVs, while the feature set improves. The sweet spot can found in the 46inch to 50-inch models, which are now going for as little as $500 and are likely to go even lower as the holidays approach. The price of 32-inch models is now routinely below $300. That could make HDTVs a good choice for gift giving this year. The big push this holiday season, however, will be the more expensive models with wired or wireless Internet connectivity, which is usually tied to aElectronicF rom page 9 See ELECTRONIC, 14

Du r ing the holidays, more vendors tend to come out, and this year will include a Christmas tree farm and a local poultry farmer whose turkeys and chicken are raised hormoneand antibiotic-free. Pr oduce, plants and pet treats are also available at the ocean side market, providing gift ideas and items for the dinner table, Ms. Swartz said. H andmade home and garden decorative accessories could be an excellent, unique gift idea, and locally grown candied pecans make great stocking stuffers, she said. B uying citrus to munch on or give as gifts is also possible at the ocean side market. "F armers give to our community in so many ways, so this is a way for us to support them," Ms. Swartz said.

Hello, smart shoppers. Let's make an amazing Christmas appetizer. F or as far back as I can remember, artichokes were one of my favorite foods. If you've never had an artichoke, there's no time like Christmas to try one. It's not something served at many tables and they can be expensive, but it is a gourmet treat y ou must try. Artichokes are nutrient dense and high in fiber. If you're having a small intimate dinner, nothing can compare to stuffed artichokes. The ways I remember eating artichokes are stuffed, marinated or with oil and garlic. Every recipe I've ever r ead has you dipping the leaves in either butter or hollandaise sauce. Ma y onnaise and aioli are other popular choices. I think that if asked what one of my favorite things to do is, I would have to say teaching a little child how to eat an artichoke. Tr ivial? No. Sheer joy! If yo u' ve never eaten one, come along with me and we'll learn how. The base, or heart, of the artichoke is the part you want to eat. Every time y ou pull a leaf off the base, it has a little piece of the delicious heart clinging to it. You do not eat the whole leaf; y ou put it between your teeth and then pull the leaf out, catching the pillow of flesh with your teeth. When my granddaughter, Meagan, was 2, she watched her daddy, Steve, eat an artichoke and reached out for it. When I asked her if she wanted to try one, she shook her head yes. How do you explain to a 2 year old that "bite down" does not mean hang on for dear life? She clamped her teeth down on that leaf as I struggled to pull it out of her mouth. Once she got a taste of the delicious flesh, though, she quickly learned the proper technique. Once all of the leaves have been pulled off and enjoyed, you are left with the "choke" and the heart. You never want to learn what the "choke" in artichoke really means. The inedible florets in the center of the vegetable will most definitely make you choke and must be removed. Getting to the artichoke heart is like getting to the prize at the bottom of a cereal box. It is superb and can be eaten out of hand or used in many dishes. You can also peel the stem, slice and cook it with the artichokes. Enjoy, see you next week!

24Indian River CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Holiday plant safety tips Hi, everybody. With the holidays getting into full swing, many of us are going to purchase one or more colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia. These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If you have pets that have a habit of chewing your plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the r eal thing and you can reuse them y ear after year. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe. U sing mistletoe as a decoration is a tradition that has been carried out for centuries. During Pa gan times, troops at war who met with the presence of mistletoe were r equired to lay down their weapons and unite in a day of truce. Mistletoe was also used during rituals that celebrated the winter solstice. It was used as a symbol of the eventual r eturn of the sun. In Christianity, mistletoe has been used as symbol of love ever since the M iddle Ages. During this era, mistletoe was blessed by a priest and all those who walked under it kissed as a sign of friendship and all bad feelings we re extinguished. In modern times, the tradition of being kissed under the mistletoe is still in full force. A trip to your local holiday shop will usually yield both live and artificial versions of this popular holiday plant. The "live" mistletoe plant is toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of small children and pets. As long as it is not ingested, this plant can still create a warm feeling of friendship to all who walk under it. Li ve Christmas trees. Although live trees are the main symbol of this great day, they can pose hazards if not handled and cared for properly. The main hazard from live trees is fire. When you first bring your tree home, be sure to cut a slice off the bottom before placing it in its new location. This will help the tree to absorb water faster, which will greatly lengthen its useful life. There are many products on the market that are labeled as "tree savers" that are useful in helping the tree to absorb water faster and over a longer period of time. It is important when choosing the location for your new tree to place it away from any heat sources or sparks. In the past, using faulty Christmas lights that either shorted out or sparked has caused most tree-related fires.

Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, "Oh, that's great, I'll have to get in there," and then drive by months later and realize that I have y et to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen va r ious advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when it's locally o wned; it's not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It's personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. Without our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. It's nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local r estaurants only. There's something to be said about walking into a place "w here everyone knows your name." N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are o wned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. Because it's not just business, it's personal.

T oday, one of the best ways to stay safe is to use the new LED lights that are available for decorating. They look great and besides running cooler than other lights, they also save you green. They use a fraction of the power of conventional lighting methods. U se only UL-approved extension cords and power strips. Using LED lights will not create as much as a load on your extension cords and power adapters. W ith the availability of a large selection of artificial trees, for many people this will be a great alternative to the live tree. Most are now in three pieces with all the lights already attached and they last year after year saving you lots of money over time. As you can see, with some common sense practices, you can stay safe this holiday season.

Just in case you are stumped on what to get that special golfer on your holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Bruce Sizemore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke ( www.superstrokeusa.com ), the company with the oversize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the Super Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. Y ou can even custom build your own r ight on the website for an even more perfect fit. If y ou know someone who’s not swing the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edge's ( www.touredge.com ) new Bazooka HT Max-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots.

S tick with a name brand, such as Garmin, Tom-Tom or M agellan and go for at least a 4.3-inch screen. The larger 5inch screens don't cost a lot more so if you like the idea of a bigger screen, go for it. S peech recognition, which allows you to control the device with voice commands, also is a convenient feature, but sometimes it is not well implemented. Check online r eviews before you buy. Lifetime maps and traffic service are also are desirable features if you plan to keep the GPS unit for more than a y ear. O dds and ends: If y ou or someone you know suffers from remote control clutter, solve it with a unified remote that allows you control everything with one device. I have tried lots of them but the best I have found is the Ha r mony One from Logitech. It handles up to 15 devices and all programming is done via the Harmony One W eb site, so there are no frustrating multi-number codes to enter. And when y ou are done, it's easy to start y our TV, stereo receiver, cable box, DVD or Blu-ray player and gaming devices with one touch. The customizable LCD touch screen on the Harmony One is activity based. So to watch TV you simply choose watch TV" and all the correct devices come on with all the right settings. Ditto for playing video games or playing a DVD. The Harmony One is not cheap, between $150 and $200, and the setup can be challenging. But it can save y ou a lot of headaches and allow you to shove all those other remote controls into a drawer somewhere. (Harmony also makes less expensive versions starting at around $30 that can be programmed online.) Another good inexpensive gift for someone who has an iPod or other music device that supports Bluetooth is a good pair of wireless Bluetooth stereo headphones. Ev eryone who has ever used earbuds knows the cord that connects the earpieces to the player can be a pain. Bluetooth headphones, which cost between $30 and $100, allow you to get rid of the cord, without loss of sound quality. Shop online for the best selection and price, since these gadgets are scarce and expensive in most area retail stores.

Dozens of floats, emergency vehicles and the VBHS Marching Band helped kick off the holiday season in style. Other tipsThere are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage of papers so there's no waste. Use ribbon to dress up a gift and direct the eye away from any imperfections. Keep a stack of paper scraps and use it instead of tissue paper to fill in gift bags. Keep scissors sharp for clean cuts. Pack smaller items or oddly shaped things into a different container that is easier to wrap. Roll up clothing and place into a paper towel tube to turn the wrapping into a candy cane shaped gift. Pr actice often makes perfect when it comes to wrapping gifts. Having the r ight paper, a few decorative supplies and some patience can ensure that gifts look festive this year. Wr appingF rom page 30 beyond? Of course, there are no ironclad r ules when it comes to tipping or gifting others during the holidays. For example, many people don't find it necessary to tip their auto mechanic come the holidays for the same reasons you wouldn't tip an attorney. B oth are already well compensated, and an extra tip is not necessary. How ever, if your auto mechanic saved your car from the scrap heap or provided service that is above and beyond what you have a right to expect, then perhaps a tip or a thoughtful gift is in order. When the holiday season arrives, generosity often reigns. But men and women should not feel obligated to tip or gift every person in their lives.

File photo Gift wrapping tricks and tips The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping r ush is over, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are gift-wrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. R egardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how.PrepareThe first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small rooms as gift-wrap stations. While you don't have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to r ecipient and have any gift receipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote your attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home.P aper or bags?When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. However, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. That's because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when you're rolling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means you'll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when you're short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a va r iety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient.Metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News See WRAPPING, 28 C ome the holiday season, most people find themselves in a giving mood. Gifting friends, family and even coworkers is common, but there are many other people in our daily lives who societal norms suggest deserve a gift as well. H oliday tipping is more common in certain areas than others, but there are a few questions men and women can ask themselves when trying to decide if a person in their lives deserves a holiday tip or gift. How often do you see the person? How frequently you see a person can help determine if that person deserves a holiday gift or tip. For example, a child's babysitter or nanny deserves a little something extra come the holidays because you likely see that person on a regular basis. The same goes for the postman or a dog walker. Men and women you ra r ely see or rarely need do not warr ant a tip or gift. Where do you live? Where a person lives also goes a long way toward determining a holiday tip or gift. People who live in apartments should show their appreciation to the doorman and building superintendent with a tip or gift. Ho meowners need not tip their local handyman, however, even if he performs the same tasks as a building superintendent. Homeowners tend to do more of their own fix-ups around the house, while apartment dwellers often rely on the super to keep their apartment in tip-top shape. Is the person a professional? M en and women who provide professional services, such as accountants, lawyers and doctors, do not warrant a tip during the holidays. These professionals are already paid handsomely for their services, and many might even gift their customers. For those who have an especially strong relationship with their accountant, lawyer, etc., perhaps a gift such as a bottle of wine might be a nice gesture. But it's certainly not mandatory.
