The county's decision to match the funds given $1 for every $3 raised by the chamber's economic leadership alliance, up to $25,000 is a wonderful help, said Helene Caseltine, economic development director for the chamber. "W e were just ecstatic, of course," she said. Ms. Caseltine said local governments have been strapped for funds to grant economic development initiatives for a while, so the chamber has been working for more than a y ear to generate funding for the initiatives from private sources. Out of that line of thinking was born the E conomic Leadership Alliance. Chamber board members, Jay Hart with Wells Fargo and Tony Donadio with Donadio and Associates, will co-chair a new campaign to raise additional funds for the alliance. The alliance is a private funding mechanism for local economic development efforts and Mr. Donadio outlined a campaign plan to raise a combined public/priv ate budget for economic develop-County to match private economic development funds SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 9, No. 10 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 2, 2011 BEST PLACE TO WORKKaren Marple of IR MC celebrates for third year in a row P ageA7 INSIDE 75999750% Off Gift Certificatesat www.HometownNewsOL.com SEARCHINGFORHOLIDAYGIFTS?

Hairless raccoon retires to wildlife sanctuaryINDIAN RIVER COUNTY A hairless raccoon spotted and caught in Vero B each was relocated to the B usch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter. The skinny, wrinkled creature with two pointed ears and a long, thin nose surprised city workers when they spotted it in a large garbage collection container on Nov. 18. It was likely scavenging for a snack, before it was caught and brought to the local animal shelter to be checked out by a veterinarian. The animal had people scratching their heads in confusion because of its unusual appearance, said I lka Daniel, director of animal protective services at the Humane Society of Libraries offer holiday activitiesINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Christmas is a season known for miracles. A few small miracles will be happening at the local libraries this December. T oilet-paper rolls will turn into sparkly wrapped candy decorations and coffee filters to glittering snowflakes during a children's holiday arts and crafts festival at the No r th Indian River County Library on Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to noon. S hirley Wolstenholme, children's librarian at the No r th Indian River County Library, said the activities are free to the public, but donated items will be accepted.

J ane Schnee of Sebastian is inviting the community to come out to her 10-acre conservation parcel on B arber Street in Sebastian to pick out and cut down a r eal Florida Christmas tree this weekend or next. Ms. Schnee and other volunteers from the U.S. F ish and Wildlife Service and the Pelican Island A udubon Society will be out with saws to cut down small pine trees on Dec. 3 and Dec. 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Lee and Jackie Binder moved to the area about six months ago and everything hasn't gone smoothly, but when they saw the signs for the free Christmas trees, they knew it was something that could turn their weekend around. "W e saw the sign and decided it would be just the thing to change this w eekend's outlook," Mr. B inder said on Nov. 26. "I t was a fortuitous event and gives us a fun family activity to do. We certainly didn't have the money to go out and spend on a commercial tree right now," he said. Ms. Schnee has dedicated her parcel to scrub jay conservation and is curr ently working to make the land even more scrub jayfriendly by removing surplus sand and slash pine trees on the property. Her idea was to offer the trees she and other volunteers cut down to the community, allowing people to help with conservation and get into the Christmas spirit. "I t' s like the pioneers used to do, cutting down their native trees at Christmas," Ms. Schnee said. The trees are free, but donations for further conservation are accepted. A $20 donation will give an individual a year-long membership to the Pelican I sland Audubon Society.

F unny money R emember those tattoos for children where the ink would just wash off? Cr eating money along the same lines did not work very well recently for a Martin County man. The man paid a bar tab with a $100 bill. Although the bill passed the counterfeit pen detector test, the bar employee was still suspicious. As it turned out, the bill lacked certain features of a r eal $100 bill and the ink came off when the bill was put in water. The suspect claimed he got the bill after selling a boat to a "friend of a friend." B ut to the deputy, the story appeared counterfeit, also. N ot only couldn't the man name the "friend of a friend," but he also did not know the name of the friend. One can hardly imagine the man saying to his "f r iend," "Hey, what's your name, come have a drink with me?"

Ve ro B each and Indian River County. It was like nothing anyone had ever seen before and was difficult to identify, she said. At first, it seemed as though it could be a diseased animal, but upon analysis of the teeth and other anatomical elements, it was identified as a raccoon, albeit a strange one, without the striking black mask, ringed tail or any fur at all, Ms. Daniel said. "H e got into a Dumpster and that's where he was found in the 1600 block of I ndian River Boulevard, in the business and industrial complex," she said. S tate rules require wild animals to be released in the area they were found, however, releasing the raccoon back in the business area wouldn't be safe, and as a raccoon without fur, he would have a hard time coping with temperature fluctuations, so Humane So ciety officials decided a sanctuary would be the safest place for him. "H e was such a neat little guy," Ms. Daniel said. Ms. Daniel said when she did an online search for hairless raccoons, images similar to the animal taken to the sanctuary appeared, further confirming their identification process. "H e wasn't some weird monster from another country, just a raccoon, and we'd like to use this opportunity as a chance to educate the public," Ms. D aniel said. She said it was likely the r accoon carried some genetic coding that caused its lack of fur. The region has been known to have unusual animal sightings. "P eople don't realize this, but we do have bobcats in the area, and we have been known to have melanistic bobcats, and they are black, so they look like panthers. There's also albino alligators," she said. Elements that bring wildlife closer to humans include finding a feeding source, one reason why it is so important to keep trash covered and away from mischievous and hungry animals, Ms. D aniel said. H uman contact with wildlife is not advisable, as some animals can carry fatal diseases, such as r abies. "P eople shouldn't take matters into their own hands. Always make sure to call a professional so they can make sure the animal is safe and the people are safe," Ms. Daniel said. F riday, December 2, 2011 A2 Sebastian River AreaHometown News 682187 DR.

The nearly 200 pieces of art were of animals both wild and domestic. The event raised more than $7,000. new way of shopping: the only problem was it's illegal. On three separate o ccasions in No vember, one woman would go into a store and select an item, such as a baby stroller, and then head toward the customer service desk and meet up with the other woman. The other woman would then obtain a refund for the item that was never paid for in the first place. In all, the two women received r efunds of almost $700. The report doesn't explain, however, how they obtained the r efunds without having paid for the items, leaving the conclusion that maybe they had phony receipts. After the third incident, they were arrested and it was all caught on video surveillance. M aybe they just didn't understand the system that you have to pay for an item in order to legally be able to obtain a refund for it.BlotterF rom page A1 ment of $200,000, a press release said. The money raised by the alliance is used primarily to market Indian River County as a business location and for recruiting businesses to check out the area. B usiness recruitment does have a cost, and can include bringing executives to see the area or sending Indian River C ounty representatives to meet businesses in other parts of the state or country, Ms. Caseltine said. Often those costs are hotel stays, receptions, dinners or other travel expenses, she said. Those costs just aren't appropriate for government reimbursement, so the funds from government have a limited use. With private-sector funding, it's much more flexible," Ms. Caseltine said. W ithin the county, spurring economic development activity is also made possible with private funds. Ms. Caseltine said she hopes to see more people take advantage of the incentives for businesses in the enterprise zone in Indian River County. I ncreasing the number of local jobs by providing incentives for existing businesses to expand is another way to spur development, Ms. Caseltine said. In the past 18 months, six new companies have moved to the area, resulting in 258 new jobs with average wages of $55,360, more than $20,000 above the existing average annual wage, according to chamber reports. F our local companies have expanded, adding 76 new jobs with an average annual wage of $48,759. F or more information,call Ms. C aseltine at (772) 567-3491,Ext. 116.DevelopmentF rom page A1

The pumps had small hand written signs at the bottom of the pump which read, "Do not use this pump, no explanation." The pump jumps to between 10 and 15 cents without ever dispensing any gas. When I realized what was happening I stopped and moved to another pump. Another customerwho used the pump after me said this has been going on for more than a week. Is there someone I can call to complain to and find out why these pumps remain operational while stealing money and the owners get away with it? Happy holidays?Ch r istmas is coming soon and already Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land. He is trying to convince all of us to say "happy holidays" rather than "merry Christmas."Meaning of ThanksgivingThanksgiving allows us to take the time to reflect and give thanks for ourmany blessings, not the least of which is living in this special land.Our nation is faced with many crises threatening the very principles which made us great.We must not take our way of life for granted.Patriotism should be expressed at every opportunity, and Thanksgiving Day is such a time.Sign overloadWhat is going on with the new (worthless) road signs; signs to protect us from things that will never happen? E xpensive signs. An example: I live in a condo and when you exit the condo, you can only go north or south. There is an empty lot on the other side of the street. Three new signs were posted so you don't drive across the road into an empty tree filled lot. Who would ever do this? Nobody. This is repeated all up and down the street. There must be 50 signs within a few miles. There are also new signs to tell us how to turn into a turn lane. The point is, we don't need signs to tell us the obvious. This is a huge waste of our money and someone should look into who is authorizing this fraud. This is another example of government gone wild.Something here smells real fishy.Don't blame RubioIs n' t it a shame that we live in an era of the politics of personal destruction? S ome of Marco Rubio's detractors are seeking to smear him based on when his parents fled communist C uba.Everyone who could do so got away from Fidel Castro.Mr. Rubio's parents fled because they "could no longer live and work under a communist regime." Those who dislike the senator should argue against his policies, not try to destroy the man.Underachievers in CongressIt is an understatement to say that our Congress is a group of underachievers.This nation should know from Europe's experience that you cannot spend yourself into prosperity because much of Europe is in desperate financial straits. C ongress is reluctant to cut spending or to cut budget deficits. It should have learned this clear lesson.We have a stern warning but there is little evidence Congress appreciates the gravity of the situation.P ost Office money pitThe money-losing Post Office is not the only government agency in shambles but it is one we see frequently. This bureaucracy is a hulking, foundering, money-hemorrhaging behemoth, which has employees earning above-average salaries and getting generous benefits and pensions. It has more vehicles than any other organization on the planet.Virtually all government agencies are inefficient, but this one takes the cake, a very expensive cake.Global crisisWe seem to be spiraling downward.First, it was Greece facing bankruptcy.Then it was Ireland and Portugal in financial trouble. Last week, South Africa had its bonds downgraded. But worst of all, Spain and Italy are now being exposed as unable to pay their debts. The only hope for survival is drastic action, but the socialists who run much of Europe lack the courage to make spending cuts. Is there a message for us here in the Un ited States?Golden boy no moreWe voters are a bunch of boobs. When Jon Corzine, the golden boy of Wall Street, appeared on the scene as a candidate for governor of New Jersey, voters swallowed his pitch that he knew finance and could help the state. U sing some of the hundreds of millions he cashed out when he left Goldman Sachs, he bought the election.He promptly ran the state into the ground. After he was termed out, he took over MF Global, and guess what?That firm is belly-up and the golden boy is seen for what he is: a fake and a failure.When in RomeA report from Rome indicates Italy's economy is hampered by high-wage costs, fat government payrolls, excessive taxes, choking bureaucracy and an educational system which produces one of the lowest levels of college graduates. This should ring a bell and wake up some Americans because it sounds very much like the United States. Got something to say?

Journey to MarsCliff Partlow /staff photographerF rom left, Joyce Jackman and Jerry Schick watch as NASA's Curiosity rover (inset) lifted off just after 10 a.m. last Saturday on its way to Mars. The $2.5 billion rover is expected to arrive near Mars in August 2012 Honest Floridians pay the price for PIP fraud. That's the takeaway from meetings I attended around the state r ecently where PIP auto insurance fraud was the topic of discussion. PIP, or personal injury protection, is insurance coverage added to your overall auto policy that is intended to pay for medical and other expenses associated with a car crash, regardless of fault. In F lorida, a minimum of $10,000 PIP coverage is r equired with each policy. We pay the highest auto liability insurance premiums in the nation, 56 percent more than other states. U nfortunately, Florida also leads the nation in staged accidents and questionable claims, which is why the number of crashes is going down, while the number of PIP claims and the cost of those claims is going up. After receiving a PIP fraud update during the cabinet meeting in Tallahassee, Jeff Atwater, F lorida's chief financial officer and I participated in listening meetings with F loridians in Tallahassee, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, T ampa and Miami to hear their concerns about PIP fraud and ideas for a solution. We learned that if we do nothing, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation predicts a 29 percent PIP pure premium increase each year. While the pure premium increase directly impacts the insurer, the costs get passed down to consumers through rate hikes, since insurers must raise rates to close the gap created by r apidly increasing fraud costs. In a time when we're working every day to get F lorida's economy back on its feet, the last thing we need is fraudsters to cause auto insurance premiums to skyrocket and raise the cost of living in this state, something I have vowed to prevent as governor. After listening to constituents affected by PIP fraud and their solutions to the problem, I announced four pillars that must be addressed to fix PIP:fraud prevention, litigation r eform, utilization and provider reform and accountability. My expectation is that we will provide significant PIP reform this legislative session. F lorida consumers have already paid more than $800 million for PIP fraud ov er the last several years and enough is enough. F lorida needs better protections for consumers, and I am committed to holding the line on runaway premiums in order to fulfill my promise to keep the cost of living low and get our state back to work. I encourage all Floridians with ideas for fixing PIP to email me at Rick.Scott@eog.myflorida.c om or call your House and S enate members and let them know that you expect them to support PIP reform so we can reduce the cost of auto insurance in Florida.Florida needs better protection from PIP fraud Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 11 02 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comSEBASTIANV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

IRMC was one of 12 companies to win the award this year, four in the 150 employees and over' category, four in the 25-150 employees category and four in the under 25 employees category. The award, announced on Oct. 20 at a luncheon at P ointe West, was based on 37 measurements, including turnover rates, growth percentages, employee development spending, promotion percentages, insurance packages and r etirement plans.

"O n behalf of the board of directors and all of the executive management team, I congratulate all of our pride team members as all of us celebrate this honor. Thanks to all for y our hard work," he said. F or Hometown NewsNewsFP@hometownnewsol.com ety member picked out two small Florida sand pines to lash together and decorate with tinsel, ornaments and other holiday trimmings. This is just awesome. We got the sand pines because they are the closest looking to the ones we're used to," Mrs. Binder said. S and pines are slender with shorts, soft needles and small oval pinecones. S lash pines have a rougher, thicker bark and trunk, longer needles and larger pinecones. F lorida scrub jays bury acorns in soft "sugar" sand for eating in the wintertime when bugs are not as plentiful, Ms. Schnee said. The pine needles dropped from the pine trees cover the sand and make it more difficult for the jays to access storage places. The trees also tend to grow quite tall, more than 8 feet, and that gives scrub jay predators, like hawks, a perfect perch to swoop down and harm the scrub jays, she said.

No snow. No ice. No walking out the door and seeing your own breath. It just doesn't feel like Christmas when I'm in short sleeves and Bermuda shorts. Thankfully, there is a place in Orlando where one can feel the chill of 9¡air while walking through tons of ice sculpted into a Shrek Christmas theme, play in snow and toss snowballs at targets, watch high-spirited performances of your favorite Christmas tunes along with some new ones, or just unwind and relax. If y ou prefer something warmer, you can even bring y our clubs and thaw out on the links or soak up the sun at the pool. That place is the Gaylord P alms Resort and Convention Center. It is holding its new DreamWorks Experience through Jan. 2 and packages start at $149. F or years now, Gaylord P alms has held ICE!, an adventure in which you don parkas and spend about 30 minutes or so walking amid some of the most wonderful ice sculptures ever carved. This year, the resort has teamed with DreamWorks to create a new theme where everyone becomes an honorary ogre, joining Sh r ek, Princess Fiona and their friends for a "Shrek the H alls" adventure. B efore experiencing ICE!, I recommend filling your belly. The Shrek feast in Villa de Flora is a character breakfast buffet fit for a king. Hungry ogres can feast on made-to-order omelets, waffles, fruits, meats, pastries and breads, eggs, cereals, grits, potatoes and much more. You must try the swamp juice. Once your stomach is filled and you're ready to enjoy some real cold at ICE!, or as the people I bumped into from Michigan called it, "a mild fall afternoon," yo u' ll need a parka (the r esort provides these), your mittens, a scarf and your camera. In this attraction, you will see all of your favorite characters from the Shrek series of movies and specials. You'll join Shrek, F iona, Donkey, Gingy, Puss in Boots and the rest of the cast from Far Far Away, as they celebrate Christmas in their own special way. There are even ice slides. It 's amazing how fast a slide is when it's made of frozen water. My family had a couple of races to see who was the quickest. Between the laughing and cheating to get a head start, we never did determine an undisputed winner. After the chilly temperatures in ICE!, head over to K ung Fu Panda Awesome SNOW, which feels like a day at the beach, but with snow. The room, kept at a comfortable 55¡, is filled with 130 tons of fresh groomed snow. The Kung Fu theme has slides, forts and lots of targets to blast with snowballs. You can even make your own snowman or a snow angel. The fun doesn't end there. Y ou can test your gingerbread house decorating skills at Gingy's Gingerbread D ecorating or enjoy "Puss in B oots," the newest DreamWor ks 3D movie. You'll get y our picture taken with the star of the show and delight in gourmet theater food and beverages. If the warmth of a fairway is more to your liking, C elebration Golf Club has partnered with Gaylord P alms to provide an incredible and unique golf experience. At C elebration, Gaylord guests enjoy a true country club experience. In addition to special tee times and r ates, you get use of your o wn locker room for the day. This par-72 track is one of only three courses in the world designed by Robert Tr ent Jones and his son R obert Trent Jones Jr. The course reflects the best these award-winning architects have created around the world. The r esult is a parkland-style course with undulating topography. There are five sets of tees, including a set specifically designed for beginners and young golfers. Fr om the very first tee, y ou will see that Celebration puts a premium on approach shots. The elder J ones' philosophy, that every hole should be a difficult par but easy bogey, is very evident. The complexity of the greens allows y ou room to miss, but most are well guarded. While the course features a great variety of holes, it's the closing ones that really stand out. You will play a short, nearly drivable par-4, a long daunting par-3, a par-4 that requires plenty of strategy and finish with the longest hole on the course. A match can quickly turn on any of these holes. Don't ask me how I know. No matter what your holiday desires may be, between the Gaylord Palms with its DreamWorks E xperience and Celebration Golf Club, you can cool off or heat up in a most delightful way.

IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG 2 A special time of year arrives S leighbells ringing and White Christmases are the stuff of memories, but not of life in Florida. Still, while it's fun to recall holidays past, it's also fun to make new traditions with our "Florida families," as one expert described it. In this issue, there is a serious story about coping with the holidays. For many, far from families, perhaps financially challenged, the holidays are not what they once were. If there has been a loss, this time of year can be very difficult. Experts from area hospitals and counseling centers have suggestions for making the holiday season a peaceful time and a time of hope. The Nutcracker Ballet" is a tradition at this time of year and several of the editions of "Forever Young" feature stories about area productions. At the Riverside Theatre, there is a Nutcracker' featuring the music of Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington, for a "Swingtime Nutcracker." In Ma r tin County, seniors who attend the Council on Aging's day center will narrate the story and students from Florida Arts and Dance will By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See SPECIAL Page 5 Sandy Huelsenbeck of Sebastian admires the ornaments on one of the many Christmas and holiday trees at All Thru the House's decorated trees for their annual open house Nov. 13.Cliff Partlow staff photographer Published monthly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Circulation Inquiries: 1-866-913-6397 or circulation@hometownnewsol.comVo ted No. 1 Community Newspaper in America by the Association of Free Community Papers.

The singers are all 50 and over and number about 50 adults. Concert introduces holiday season VERO BEACH The generations will come together to welcome the Christmas season when the Silver T ones Chorus from the Senior R esource Association, the Sebastian H igh School Chorus and the Gifford Y outh Orchestra perform in a free concert at the Emerson Center on Dec. 15. The Silver Tones Chorus began in 2007 to give those 50 and over a chance to sing together and perform for the community. Rehearsing at the Schumann Hall Senior Center, the group has just hired a new director, Allen Rosenberg, formerly artistic director of the St. Lucie Chorale. The group is sponsored by the Leo and Peggy Pierce Family Foundation, which assumes all of the costs of the group and its performances. K elly De Long, senior center manager, said that they could not do this without the help of the foundation. "W e rent the Emerson Center and they fund it completely," she said. They pay any salaries and costs. W ithout them it would be impossible." The Silver Tones, numbering about 50 adults, will perform a variety of Christmas music. "I n the past, they performed older songs," Ms. De Long said. "This y ear, there are songs everyone will know, including The Twelve Days of Christmas,' What Child is This?' C arol of the Bells,' Rudolph the R ed-Nosed Reindeer,' Joy to the W orld' and We Wish you a Merry Christmas.' This year, the singers will share the stage with the younger performers. The Sebastian High School Choru s, under the direction of Lynn Harvey, will join the Silver Tones for several songs and will perform 10-15 minutes of their own holiday music. The Gifford Youth Orchestra, directed by founder Crystal Bujol, will do the musical accompaniment for "Joy to the World" and "We Wish Y ou a Merry Christmas" and will perform other Christmas songs. "W ith this intergenerational concert, we're trying to involve the community," Ms. De Long said. "It's great to have all walks of life. Last year, when we had the Vero Beach Classical Ballet, the seniors loved the ballerinas. They were thrilled and smiling. The dancers brought youth and happiness to everyone." The assistance of the Pierce F oundation enables the group to r ent the Emerson Center and they are happy to share the stage. "I t gives students a chance to perform there as well," Ms. De Long said." The Silver Tones is open to singers 50 and over and no one is turned away. "O ur director doesn't like to say n o, '" Ms. De Long said. "He'll just give them a voice placement test. Se veral members of the group have disabilities. One woman who cannot see memorizes all the music. "I t' s a great outlet," Ms. De Long said.

IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG 6 Je wish holiday celebrates miracle VERO BEACH When Chanukah begins at sundown on Dec. 20, it starts eight days of a holiday thousand of the years in the making. R abbi Michael Birnholz is the spiritual leader at Temple Beth S halom in Vero Beach. He spoke r ecently about the history and customs of the holiday also known as the Festival of Lights. When Alexander the Great's empire came to an end, it was split into three areas: Egypt, Syria and R ome," the rabbi said. "The Greek Empire was centered in Egypt and J udea was under Egyptian rule. When the Greek Empire in Syria took over, they were not as tolerant as the Egyptians, who had allowed the Judeans to run the Temple and live out their culture." The ruler, Antiochus, wanted everyone under his dominion to assimilate and the Temple was desecrated. Finally, the Jews revolted. "A group of Jews, led by Mattathias and his son, Judah the Maccabee, fought for several years," the r abbi said. Finally, there was a miracle. Though they were few in number, they defeated the well-armed Sy r ian Greek army and sent them back to Syria." The Jews found the Temple desecrated and prepared to reconsecrate it for Jewish worship. In fact, Chanukah" means "dedication" in H ebrew. There is an eternal light that always burns in a sanctuary," the r abbi said. "They went to light it and they found only a little bit of olive oil that would last a day or so. They had been unable to celebrate the festivals under Syrian rule and wanted to model it after the festival S ukkot, which lasts eight days. The oil lasted eight days instead of one. That was the miracle." R abbi Birnholz said there is a message beyond that miracle. "I t was a fight for freedom, for tolerance, for caring for others," he said. "Even in dark times, there are ways to start with a little light and see it grow physically and spiritually." One of the most important symbols of the holiday is the ninebranched candlestick known as the menorah. Eight candles stand for each day of Chanukah and the taller one is used to light the others. On each night of Chanukah, an additional candle is lit, until the entire M enorah glows. "Originally, there were seven branches for seven days of the w eek, the rabbi said. "It was adapted for Chanukah with eight branches and a ninth for help, as a re minder of the miracle of the oil." "Y ou light one on the first day and increase the light," the rabbi said. "You are at the end of the month of Kislev, closest to the winter solstice, approaching a new moon. There is increasing light and the world will continue through the dark time of winter." Chanukah is a family holiday that starts off, like all Jewish holidays, with the setting of the sun. There are songs," the rabbi said. "It's a festive time, even if it's cold and dark. "There are latkes, or potato pancakes, fried in olive oil. This was the olive oil holiday because the olives would be picked at Sukkot and the new crop of olive oil would be ready for Chanukah. In Is r ael, they eat jelly doughnuts." A popular game is the spinning of a top known as a dreidl.

7December 2011FOREVER YOU NG IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Having a plan a good way to deal with holidays VERO BEACH For many, the holidays evoke wonderful memories of friends and families, of celebrations and presents and happy times. However, for some, the holidays have changed because families are far away, loved ones are gone and children are grown. H eather Simmons is a licensed clinical social worker and registered nurse at Indian River Medical Center. H er advice for those coping with change is to have a plan. "I t' s important to mentally prepare y ourself," she said. "Anticipation is often worse than the actual day. If we anticipate we will be lonely, we probably will be. "I f we make a plan to get involved at a senior center or with a church, help someone else or pick up the phone to call friends, we mentally prepare ourselves." Those of us in Florida are often dealing with physical and financial limitations. It may not be possible to make that trip up north to see the grandkids. It's not as much fun to decorate if no one's coming. Those are some of the thoughts people often have. Ms. Simmons again suggests having a plan to avoid the depression that may occur because things have changed. Don't wait for Dec. 24 to get involved," she said. "Ask yourself, how can I change the tradition to make do with what I have?' Maybe instead of a large tree, it's a smaller, table-top one. F ind out what's happening at the churches or senior centers. Sharing and helping others is a way of helping ourselves." One way to enjoy the gift of giving is to pick an angel off the trees at many stores. They give the first name and age of a child and what the child needs and wants for Christmas. While you will not see the child receive gift, you have the fun of shopping and a reward, as well. "Y ou can anticipate little eyes big and round when they open it," Ms. Si mmons said. D epression is very common among older people and many do not seek help. The hardest thing for many seniors is still the stigma of reaching out and asking for help," Ms. Simmons said. "If I could give one guideline, it would be that alcohol does not bring cheer to the lonely." F lexibility is also important, Ms. S immons said. You may have to do things differently. Perhaps you take a short trip and celebrate the holidays a little early. Maybe you can gather friends together on Dec. 23 and make a party. "B e proactive," she said. "There's no one way to celebrate a traditions. It's about giving. Giving makes you feel better." If y ou still feel stressed about the holidays, Ms. Simmons has one more bit of advice. Always turn stressed' into desserts.' That's stressed spelled backwards." If y ou have been feeling sad, withdrawing, have lost interest in your usual activities and are worrying, you may have depression. T alk to your doctor.If you cannot do that,call Indian River Medical Center's A ssessment and Referral line.A psychiatric nurse is on call round-the-clock and can point you towards help.It is available.Call (772) 567-4311,ext.3717. By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor Nutcracker' swings to a new beat VERO BEACH You may think you know "The Nutcracker Ballet," but y ou haven't seen it like this before. F or the second year, Riverside Children's Theatre's Dance Conservatory will present choreographer and librettist Adam Schnell's version of the classic tale, "The Nutcracker" in S wing Time." S et in a private girls school in New England in 1938, the production features a version of the Tchaikovsky score, transposed by David Berger, B illy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. "I t' s a whole different animal, "Mr. Schnell said. "We were looking for a project for the dance department of the Children's Theatre. There are so many student productions of The N utcracker.' We have a strong classical ballet program, but many students are also in musicals and taking tap and modern dance. We wanted something our kids could do that is unique for them." Mr. Schnell, who was formerly a dancer and chorographer with companies including the Sarasota Ballet, Ne v ada Ballet Theatre and Les Ballets Tr ocadero de Monte Carlo, was familiar with a production by Donald Berg entitled "The Harlem Nutcracker." The jazz greats had taken the Tchaikovsky score and adapted it for that production, set in Harlem after W orld War II. That production ceased in 2002," Mr. Schnell said. "No one was using the score and we secured the rights to it. I tailor-made the story so that it would work for our kids and be sustainable from year to year." Mr. Schnell set the story in 1938 so that it was before the country plunged into war. "I wanted the energy and optimism or that era," he said. "I didn't want the WW II Nutcracker.'" The production takes advantage of Riverside Theatre's strengths. "S ets and props are not a problem because we have our own shops," Mr. Schnell said. "I wanted the costumes to have a nod to classical costumes. I contacted Travis Halsey, a friend at the Joffrey Ballet. Seventy-five percent of the clothes were built for us. One of the cool things is a Chinese dragon puppet for the Dance of the Chinese Acrobats.' He can make a tutu and a dragon." Mr. Schnell didn't have far to look for the set designer. Jon Moses, managing director of the Riverside, took on that task. "I 'v e known him since he was technical director," Mr. Schnell said. "H e' s not designing much anymore. I asked him if he wanted to design the sets and he took on that responsibility on top of everything else he does around here." This production takes place in the Anne Morton Theatre. With 200 seats, it is a more intimate space than the main stage. "T o build an audience for dance, y ou have to bring them close to the action," Mr. Schnell said. "I wanted it to be in an intimate setting where they felt a part of the action." F or the chorographer, this been a r ewarding project. "N obody has heard this version of the score before and I'm only the third choreographer to tackle it," he said. "I t' s what the Riverside does. We try to put our stamp on it. "I t' s inspiring to me as a dancer. I can't tell you the number of classical N utcrackers' I've been in, and to take Heather SimmonsBy Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See NUTCRACKER Page 17

For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back ov er the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980's when my younger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small rural outpost about five miles west of the S t. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge Ocala N ational Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around C entral Florida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig roast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had raised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. F irst, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others went into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Linda's w ell-fortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) reached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. Having regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of "A Christmas Carol." As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cr atchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this round. No w, for a big time pig roast like this to be successful the animal must be turned regularly. That task r equired four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin Randy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we we re all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we were able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasn't burned seemed to be cooked pretty w ell. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog had turned out OK, considering the cooks' lapse in sobriety and hence, attention. No one but me seemed to mind that there was no sauce. Right at the top of the hill on Linda's property grew a Florida cedar tree over 30 feet tall. Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar. When it was completely dark we plugged it in amid "oohs" and "aahs." Later we we re told it could be seen for miles. Of course, the women began to sing Christmas songs and the hungover men tried to join in as well as they could. It was certainly a Christmas to remember. S adly, my sister Linda, who was a true baby boomer (born in 1947), passed away in 2003. But memories like these of that crazy pig roast keep her in our hearts especially during the holidays. These days family is still so important this time of year. My wife Lana and I center our holidays around our daughter Shayla's beautiful 8-year-old, our granddaughter Delayna. We would like to wish a merry Christmas to you all.Please enjoy each other while you can.IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG 10 Christmas pig roast about family as much as foodLAND LINESD AN SMITH 682255787 37th St. € Vero Beach € 772-569-9747Medicare and most insurance plans accepted 682251Medicare and most insurance plans acceptedMM 27576 686600Local Pickup772-360-9158Diabetic Test Strips Wanted!We will pay CASH for your new, unused &unexpired boxes of test strips!All Brands Considered 676850medical directory

(usually) Times change, dress changes, Even THE CHANGE' has changed. I know some of us (usually the men-folk) yearn for the Old Days' when things were simpler (For them!) but I don't think I would have fared very well at all. I cannot picture myself in a woolen bathing suit r ushing home from taking the kids to the beach so I can have a homecooked lunch waiting for my husband when he gets home from the polls while fighting hot flashes Du r ing prohibition. F amilies have certainly changed; when I go to my grandson's high school football games I find myself surrounded by my son, his younger children, his beautiful new wife, her children, my ex-daughter-in-law, her new husband, their new daughter and my son's ex-mother-in-law. Each and every one of us is standing, y elling and slapping each other on the back when our team scores. M ost symptoms of THE CHANGE' are now treatable to a certain extent, shortening the late night hours spent fanning ourselves with the freezer door considerably. H olidays may be one constant in our lives, but the way we celebrate has certainly come a long way. When my children were young we usually had the big family day at our house. Due in large part to the fact that I was usually absent from the family meetings where location was decided, my husband's family would converge in the morning, cousins usually began running and screaming in all directions just about the time Macy's parade began, we would be finishing the last piece of pie (for the moment) just as the game came on, then coffee and more pie during half time. As my family aged and grew with the addition of "significant others", the arrival of my grandchildren and new sets of in-laws, we re-invented our celebrations as necessary. I began serving a brunch on the holidays. We all brought something for brunch and my children could spend half the day with us then be free to enjoy turkey and trimmings with the other side of their families. C ontrary to popular opinion, (usually from the other side of the families) I did not arrange things this way to have the pleasure of my grandchildren's company when they were awake and bright in the morning, not tired and cranky later in the afternoon. Nor was it my intention to be the Grammy who loves them the most by filling them with hand/turkey cookies or gingerbread men just to send them to their other grandparents.

Ev ery day, consumers find out someone is illegally using their personal information to make purchases and open new financial accounts, like credit cards and loans. U ndetected, identity fraud can lead to difficulties in applying for a mortgage, loan, new credit card or bank accounts even if you've had great credit for years. The r oad to recovery may be a long, aggravating journey, especially when you don't catch fraud immediately. Last year, 8.1 million adults were the victims of identity fraud, according to a recent Javelin Strategy & Research I dentity Fraud Survey. He re are some tips to help protect yourself from an identity nightmare: Online: When creating passwords, don't use information that easily could be linked to you like your birth date, Social S ecurity number, phone number, or the names of family and pets. Using a mix of numbers, letters, and characters to create your password makes it harder for others to guess. Change your passwords every 30 days, and use unique passwords on each site you access. Whether you're providing financial information for a loan or placing an order online, be sure the site you're using is secure.

If you're single and over 50, you may have noticed dating has changed since your teens and 20s. You've likely been married, divorced or widowed at this stage in your life, and out of the dating game for a while. And with the advent of online dating sites and social networking, meeting people has become both easier (as close as your computer) and harder than ever (is the person really who he or she says they are?).

M any researchers ignore these r ecords completely, or only look at one or two records for their family, assuming they have learned all the facts they need. Each family should be followed all the way back through the census every 10 years, picking up children, parents, brothers and sisters, in-laws and any other relatives that show up in the household or neighborhood. Fr om 1790-1840, the census only named the head of the household, and gave the number of people living in the house. From 1850 forward, each member of the household was named, with their sex, age, and place of birth. Each census became more complex, asking more questions, adding relationships, occupations, parents' places of birth, number of years married, number of children given birth to, and other pertinent clues. S tarting with the 1930 census, and working backward, you should look at y our family, taking down all the information given and looking at the neighboring families. Often, other family members are living nearby, and these need to be noted, also. If there are other families with the same surname, they are possibly parents, brothers, uncles and cousins. John's father may be living next door to him, and in his household is grandma or grandpa. Viola!! You have three generations laid out on one or two pages. As you work your way through each census, you will find differences in the spellings of names, family members will come and go, and the family will move around the country. Each census taker had his own style. Some used only initials, some used only a first name regardless of which name is preferred. Sometimes the correct name is used, the next time it will be a nickname. Ages also will change from census to census. Use this information as a guide and not as absolute fact. The first order of business is census work. I nformation gathered here will make the rest of your research much easier.

The countys decision to match the funds given $1 for every $3 raised by the chambers economic leadership alliance, up to $25,000 is a wonderful help, said Helene Caseltine, economic development director for the chamber. W e were just ecstatic, of course, she said. Ms. Caseltine said local governments have been strapped for funds to grant economic development initiatives for a while, so the chamber has been working for more than a y ear to generate funding for the initiatives from private sources. Out of that line of thinking was born the E conomic Leadership Alliance. Chamber board members, Jay Hart with Wells Fargo and Tony Donadio with Donadio and Associates, will co-chair a new campaign to raise additional funds for the alliance. The alliance is a private funding mechanism for local economic development efforts and Mr. Donadio outlined a campaign plan to raise a combined public/priv ate budget for economic develop-County to match private economic development funds SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 9, No. 10 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 2, 2011 BEST PLACE TO WORKKaren Marple of IRMC celebrates for third year in a row P ageA7 INSIDE 50% Off Gift Certificatesat www.HometownNewsOL.com SEARCHINGFORHOLIDAYGIFTS?

Hairless raccoon retires to wildlife sanctuaryINDIAN RIVER COUNTY A hairless raccoon spotted and caught in Vero B each was relocated to the B usch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter. The skinny, wrinkled creature with two pointed ears and a long, thin nose surprised city workers when they spotted it in a large garbage collection container on Nov. 18. It was likely scavenging for a snack, before it was caught and brought to the local animal shelter to be checked out by a veterinarian.

J ane Schnee of Sebastian is inviting the community to come out to her 10-acre conservation parcel on B arber Street in Sebastian to pick out and cut down a r eal Florida Christmas tree this weekend or next. Ms. Schnee and other volunteers from the U.S. F ish and Wildlife Service and the Pelican Island A udubon Society will be out with saws to cut down small pine trees on Dec. 3 and Dec. 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Lee and Jackie Binder moved to the area about six months ago and everything hasnt gone smoothly, but when they saw the signs for the free Christmas trees, they knew it was something that could turn their weekend around. W e saw the sign and decided it would be just the thing to change this w eekends outlook, Mr. B inder said on Nov. 26. I t was a fortuitous event and gives us a fun family activity to do. We certainly didnt have the money to go out and spend on a commercial tree right now, he said. Ms. Schnee has dedicated her parcel to scrub jay conservation and is curr ently working to make the land even more scrub jayfriendly by removing surplus sand and slash pine trees on the property. Her idea was to offer the trees she and other volunteers cut down to the community, allowing people to help with conservation and get into the Christmas spirit. I t s like the pioneers used to do, cutting down their native trees at Christmas, Ms. Schnee said. The trees are free, but donations for further conservation are accepted.

F unny money R emember those tattoos for children where the ink would just wash off? Cr eating money along the same lines did not work very well recently for a Martin County man. The man paid a bar tab with a $100 bill. Although the bill passed the counterfeit pen detector test, the bar employee was still suspicious. As it turned out, the bill lacked certain features of a r eal $100 bill and the ink came off when the bill was put in water. The suspect claimed he got the bill after selling a boat to a friend of a friend. B ut to the deputy, the story appeared counterfeit, also. N ot only couldnt the man name the friend of a friend, but he also did not know the name of the friend. One can hardly imagine the man saying to his fr iend, Hey, whats your name, come have a drink with me?

Ve ro Beach and Indian River County. It was like nothing anyone had ever seen before and was difficult to identify, she said. At first, it seemed as though it could be a diseased animal, but upon analysis of the teeth and other anatomical elements, it was identified as a raccoon, albeit a strange one, without the striking black mask, ringed tail or any fur at all, Ms. Daniel said. H e got into a Dumpster and thats where he was found in the 1600 block of I ndian River Boulevard, in the business and industrial complex, she said. S tate rules require wild animals to be released in the area they were found, however, releasing the raccoon back in the business area wouldnt be safe, and as a raccoon without fur, he would have a hard time coping with temperature fluctuations, so Humane So ciety officials decided a sanctuary would be the safest place for him. H e was such a neat little guy, Ms. Daniel said. Ms. Daniel said when she did an online search for hairless raccoons, images similar to the animal taken to the sanctuary appeared, further confirming their identification process. H e wasnt some weird monster from another country, just a raccoon, and wed like to use this opportunity as a chance to educate the public, Ms. D aniel said. She said it was likely the r accoon carried some genetic coding that caused its lack of fur. The region has been known to have unusual animal sightings. P eople dont realize this, but we do have bobcats in the area, and we have been known to have melanistic bobcats, and they are black, so they look like panthers. Theres also albino alligators, she said. Elements that bring wildlife closer to humans include finding a feeding source, one reason why it is so important to keep trash covered and away from mischievous and hungry animals, Ms. D aniel said. H uman contact with wildlife is not advisable, as some animals can carry fatal diseases, such as r abies. P eople shouldnt take matters into their own hands. Always make sure to call a professional so they can make sure the animal is safe and the people are safe, Ms. Daniel said. F riday, December 2, 2011 A2 Sebastian River AreaHometown News DR.

The nearly 200 pieces of art were of animals both wild and domestic. The event raised more than $7,000. new way of shopping: the only problem was its illegal. On three separate o ccasions in November, one woman would go into a store and select an item, such as a baby stroller, and then head toward the customer service desk and meet up with the other woman. The other woman would then obtain a refund for the item that was never paid for in the first place. In all, the two women received r efunds of almost $700. The report doesnt explain, however, how they obtained the r efunds without having paid for the items, leaving the conclusion that maybe they had phony receipts. After the third incident, they were arrested and it was all caught on video surveillance. M aybe they just didnt understand the system that you have to pay for an item in order to legally be able to obtain a refund for it.BlotterF rom page A1 ment of $200,000, a press release said. The money raised by the alliance is used primarily to market Indian River County as a business location and for recruiting businesses to check out the area. B usiness recruitment does have a cost, and can include bringing executives to see the area or sending Indian River C ounty representatives to meet businesses in other parts of the state or country, Ms. Caseltine said. Often those costs are hotel stays, receptions, dinners or other travel expenses, she said. Those costs just arent appropriate for government reimbursement, so the funds from government have a limited use. With private-sector funding, its much more flexible, Ms. Caseltine said. W ithin the county, spurring economic development activity is also made possible with private funds. Ms. Caseltine said she hopes to see more people take advantage of the incentives for businesses in the enterprise zone in Indian River County. I ncreasing the number of local jobs by providing incentives for existing businesses to expand is another way to spur development, Ms. Caseltine said. In the past 18 months, six new companies have moved to the area, resulting in 258 new jobs with average wages of $55,360, more than $20,000 above the existing average annual wage, according to chamber reports. F our local companies have expanded, adding 76 new jobs with an average annual wage of $48,759. F or more information,call Ms. C aseltine at (772) 567-3491,Ext. 116.DevelopmentF rom page A1

The pumps had small hand written signs at the bottom of the pump which read, Do not use this pump, no explanation. The pump jumps to between 10 and 15 cents without ever dispensing any gas. When I realized what was happening I stopped and moved to another pump. Another customerwho used the pump after me said this has been going on for more than a week. Is there someone I can call to complain to and find out why these pumps remain operational while stealing money and the owners get away with it? Happy holidays?Chr istmas is coming soon and already Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land. He is trying to convince all of us to say happy holidays rather than merry Christmas.Meaning of ThanksgivingThanksgiving allows us to take the time to reflect and give thanks for ourmany blessings, not the least of which is living in this special land.Our nation is faced with many crises threatening the very principles which made us great.We must not take our way of life for granted.Patriotism should be expressed at every opportunity, and Thanksgiving Day is such a time.Sign overloadWhat is going on with the new (worthless) road signs; signs to protect us from things that will never happen? E xpensive signs. An example: I live in a condo and when you exit the condo, you can only go north or south. There is an empty lot on the other side of the street. Three new signs were posted so you dont drive across the road into an empty tree filled lot. Who would ever do this? Nobody. This is repeated all up and down the street. There must be 50 signs within a few miles. There are also new signs to tell us how to turn into a turn lane. The point is, we dont need signs to tell us the obvious. This is a huge waste of our money and someone should look into who is authorizing this fraud. This is another example of government gone wild.Something here smells real fishy.Dont blame RubioIs n t it a shame that we live in an era of the politics of personal destruction? S ome of Marco Rubios detractors are seeking to smear him based on when his parents fled communist C uba.Everyone who could do so got away from Fidel Castro.Mr. Rubios parents fled because they could no longer live and work under a communist regime. Those who dislike the senator should argue against his policies, not try to destroy the man.Underachievers in CongressIt is an understatement to say that our Congress is a group of underachievers.This nation should know from Europes experience that you cannot spend yourself into prosperity because much of Europe is in desperate financial straits. C ongress is reluctant to cut spending or to cut budget deficits. It should have learned this clear lesson.We have a stern warning but there is little evidence Congress appreciates the gravity of the situation.P ost Office money pitThe money-losing Post Office is not the only government agency in shambles but it is one we see frequently. This bureaucracy is a hulking, foundering, money-hemorrhaging behemoth, which has employees earning above-average salaries and getting generous benefits and pensions. It has more vehicles than any other organization on the planet.Virtually all government agencies are inefficient, but this one takes the cake, a very expensive cake.Global crisisWe seem to be spiraling downward.First, it was Greece facing bankruptcy.Then it was Ireland and Portugal in financial trouble. Last week, South Africa had its bonds downgraded. But worst of all, Spain and Italy are now being exposed as unable to pay their debts. The only hope for survival is drastic action, but the socialists who run much of Europe lack the courage to make spending cuts. Is there a message for us here in the Un ited States?Golden boy no moreWe voters are a bunch of boobs. When Jon Corzine, the golden boy of Wall Street, appeared on the scene as a candidate for governor of New Jersey, voters swallowed his pitch that he knew finance and could help the state. U sing some of the hundreds of millions he cashed out when he left Goldman Sachs, he bought the election.He promptly ran the state into the ground. After he was termed out, he took over MF Global, and guess what?That firm is belly-up and the golden boy is seen for what he is: a fake and a failure.When in RomeA report from Rome indicates Italys economy is hampered by high-wage costs, fat government payrolls, excessive taxes, choking bureaucracy and an educational system which produces one of the lowest levels of college graduates. This should ring a bell and wake up some Americans because it sounds very much like the United States. Got something to say?

Journey to MarsCliff Partlow /staff photographerF rom left, Joyce Jackman and Jerry Schick watch as NASAs Curiosity rover (inset) lifted off just after 10 a.m. last Saturday on its way to Mars. The $2.5 billion rover is expected to arrive near Mars in August 2012 Honest Floridians pay the price for PIP fraud. Thats the takeaway from meetings I attended around the state r ecently where PIP auto insurance fraud was the topic of discussion. PIP, or personal injury protection, is insurance coverage added to your overall auto policy that is intended to pay for medical and other expenses associated with a car crash, regardless of fault. In F lorida, a minimum of $10,000 PIP coverage is r equired with each policy. We pay the highest auto liability insurance premiums in the nation, 56 percent more than other states. U nfortunately, Florida also leads the nation in staged accidents and questionable claims, which is why the number of crashes is going down, while the number of PIP claims and the cost of those claims is going up. After receiving a PIP fraud update during the cabinet meeting in Tallahassee, Jeff Atwater, F loridas chief financial officer and I participated in listening meetings with F loridians in Tallahassee, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, T ampa and Miami to hear their concerns about PIP fraud and ideas for a solution. We learned that if we do nothing, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation predicts a 29 percent PIP pure premium increase each year. While the pure premium increase directly impacts the insurer, the costs get passed down to consumers through rate hikes, since insurers must raise rates to close the gap created by r apidly increasing fraud costs. In a time when were working every day to get F loridas economy back on its feet, the last thing we need is fraudsters to cause auto insurance premiums to skyrocket and raise the cost of living in this state, something I have vowed to prevent as governor. After listening to constituents affected by PIP fraud and their solutions to the problem, I announced four pillars that must be addressed to fix PIP:fraud prevention, litigation r eform, utilization and provider reform and accountability. My expectation is that we will provide significant PIP reform this legislative session. F lorida consumers have already paid more than $800 million for PIP fraud ov er the last several years and enough is enough. F lorida needs better protections for consumers, and I am committed to holding the line on runaway premiums in order to fulfill my promise to keep the cost of living low and get our state back to work. I encourage all Floridians with ideas for fixing PIP to email me at Rick.Scott@eog.myflorida.c om or call your House and S enate members and let them know that you expect them to support PIP reform so we can reduce the cost of auto insurance in Florida.Florida needs better protection from PIP fraud Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

Thanks to all for y our hard work, he said. F or Hometown NewsNewsFP@hometownnewsol.com ety member picked out two small Florida sand pines to lash together and decorate with tinsel, ornaments and other holiday trimmings. This is just awesome. We got the sand pines because they are the closest looking to the ones were used to, Mrs. Binder said. S and pines are slender with shorts, soft needles and small oval pinecones. S lash pines have a rougher, thicker bark and trunk, longer needles and larger pinecones. F lorida scrub jays bury acorns in soft sugar sand for eating in the wintertime when bugs are not as plentiful, Ms. Schnee said. The pine needles dropped from the pine trees cover the sand and make it more difficult for the jays to access storage places. The trees also tend to grow quite tall, more than 8 feet, and that gives scrub jay predators, like hawks, a perfect perch to swoop down and harm the scrub jays, she said.

The problem I have with being in Florida for the holidays is that its simply too warm. No snow. No ice. No walking out the door and seeing your own breath. It just doesnt feel like Christmas when Im in short sleeves and Bermuda shorts. Thankfully, there is a place in Orlando where one can feel the chill of 9air while walking through tons of ice sculpted into a Shrek Christmas theme, play in snow and toss snowballs at targets, watch high-spirited performances of your favorite Christmas tunes along with some new ones, or just unwind and relax. If y ou prefer something warmer, you can even bring y our clubs and thaw out on the links or soak up the sun at the pool. That place is the Gaylord P alms Resort and Convention Center. It is holding its new DreamWorks Experience through Jan. 2 and packages start at $149. F or years now, Gaylord P alms has held ICE!, an adventure in which you don parkas and spend about 30 minutes or so walking amid some of the most wonderful ice sculptures ever carved. This year, the resort has teamed with DreamWorks to create a new theme where everyone becomes an honorary ogre, joining Shr ek, Princess Fiona and their friends for a Shrek the H alls adventure. B efore experiencing ICE!, I recommend filling your belly. The Shrek feast in Villa de Flora is a character breakfast buffet fit for a king. Hungry ogres can feast on made-to-order omelets, waffles, fruits, meats, pastries and breads, eggs, cereals, grits, potatoes and much more. You must try the swamp juice. Once your stomach is filled and youre ready to enjoy some real cold at ICE!, or as the people I bumped into from Michigan called it, a mild fall afternoon, yo u ll need a parka (the r esort provides these), your mittens, a scarf and your camera. In this attraction, you will see all of your favorite characters from the Shrek series of movies and specials. Youll join Shrek, F iona, Donkey, Gingy, Puss in Boots and the rest of the cast from Far Far Away, as they celebrate Christmas in their own special way. There are even ice slides. It s amazing how fast a slide is when its made of frozen water. My family had a couple of races to see who was the quickest. Between the laughing and cheating to get a head start, we never did determine an undisputed winner. After the chilly temperatures in ICE!, head over to K ung Fu Panda Awesome SNOW, which feels like a day at the beach, but with snow. The room, kept at a comfortable 55, is filled with 130 tons of fresh groomed snow. The Kung Fu theme has slides, forts and lots of targets to blast with snowballs. You can even make your own snowman or a snow angel. The fun doesnt end there. Y ou can test your gingerbread house decorating skills at Gingys Gingerbread D ecorating or enjoy Puss in B oots, the newest DreamWor ks 3D movie. Youll get y our picture taken with the star of the show and delight in gourmet theater food and beverages. If the warmth of a fairway is more to your liking, C elebration Golf Club has partnered with Gaylord P alms to provide an incredible and unique golf experience. At Celebration, Gaylord guests enjoy a true country club experience. In addition to special tee times and r ates, you get use of your o wn locker room for the day. This par-72 track is one of only three courses in the world designed by Robert Tr ent Jones and his son R obert Trent Jones Jr. The course reflects the best these award-winning architects have created around the world. The r esult is a parkland-style course with undulating topography. There are five sets of tees, including a set specifically designed for beginners and young golfers. Fr om the very first tee, y ou will see that Celebration puts a premium on approach shots. The elder J ones philosophy, that every hole should be a difficult par but easy bogey, is very evident. The complexity of the greens allows y ou room to miss, but most are well guarded. While the course features a great variety of holes, its the closing ones that really stand out. You will play a short, nearly drivable par-4, a long daunting par-3, a par-4 that requires plenty of strategy and finish with the longest hole on the course. A match can quickly turn on any of these holes. Dont ask me how I know. No matter what your holiday desires may be, between the Gaylord Palms with its DreamWorks E xperience and Celebration Golf Club, you can cool off or heat up in a most delightful way.

INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG 2 A special time of year arrives S leighbells ringing and White Christmases are the stuff of memories, but not of life in Florida. Still, while its fun to recall holidays past, its also fun to make new traditions with our Florida families, as one expert described it. In this issue, there is a serious story about coping with the holidays. For many, far from families, perhaps financially challenged, the holidays are not what they once were. If there has been a loss, this time of year can be very difficult. Experts from area hospitals and counseling centers have suggestions for making the holiday season a peaceful time and a time of hope. The Nutcracker Ballet is a tradition at this time of year and several of the editions of Forever Young feature stories about area productions. At the Riverside Theatre, there is a Nutcracker featuring the music of Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington, for a Swingtime Nutcracker.

The singers are all 50 and over and number about 50 adults. Concert introduces holiday season VERO BEACH The generations will come together to welcome the Christmas season when the Silver T ones Chorus from the Senior R esource Association, the Sebastian H igh School Chorus and the Gifford Y outh Orchestra perform in a free concert at the Emerson Center on Dec. 15. The Silver Tones Chorus began in 2007 to give those 50 and over a chance to sing together and perform for the community. Rehearsing at the Schumann Hall Senior Center, the group has just hired a new director, Allen Rosenberg, formerly artistic director of the St. Lucie Chorale. The group is sponsored by the Leo and Peggy Pierce Family Foundation, which assumes all of the costs of the group and its performances. K elly De Long, senior center manager, said that they could not do this without the help of the foundation. W e rent the Emerson Center and they fund it completely, she said. They pay any salaries and costs. W ithout them it would be impossible. The Silver Tones, numbering about 50 adults, will perform a variety of Christmas music. I n the past, they performed older songs, Ms. De Long said. This y ear, there are songs everyone will know, including The Twelve Days of Christmas, What Child is This? C arol of the Bells, Rudolph the R ed-Nosed Reindeer, Joy to the W orld and We Wish you a Merry Christmas. This year, the singers will share the stage with the younger performers. The Sebastian High School Choru s, under the direction of Lynn Harvey, will join the Silver Tones for several songs and will perform 10-15 minutes of their own holiday music. The Gifford Youth Orchestra, directed by founder Crystal Bujol, will do the musical accompaniment for Joy to the World and We Wish Y ou a Merry Christmas and will perform other Christmas songs. W ith this intergenerational concert, were trying to involve the community, Ms. De Long said. Its great to have all walks of life. Last year, when we had the Vero Beach Classical Ballet, the seniors loved the ballerinas. They were thrilled and smiling. The dancers brought youth and happiness to everyone. The assistance of the Pierce F oundation enables the group to r ent the Emerson Center and they are happy to share the stage. I t gives students a chance to perform there as well, Ms. De Long said. The Silver Tones is open to singers 50 and over and no one is turned away. O ur director doesnt like to say n o, Ms. De Long said. Hell just give them a voice placement test. Se veral members of the group have disabilities. One woman who cannot see memorizes all the music. I t s a great outlet, Ms. De Long said. The Silver Tones, Sebastian High School Chorus and Gifford Youth Orchestra will present a free holiday concert on Dec. 15 from 7-9 p.m. at the Emerson Center, 1590 27th Ave., Ve ro Beach.

INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG 6 Je wish holiday celebrates miracle VERO BEACH When Chanukah begins at sundown on Dec. 20, it starts eight days of a holiday thousand of the years in the making. R abbi Michael Birnholz is the spiritual leader at Temple Beth S halom in Vero Beach. He spoke r ecently about the history and customs of the holiday also known as the Festival of Lights. When Alexander the Greats empire came to an end, it was split into three areas: Egypt, Syria and R ome, the rabbi said. The Greek Empire was centered in Egypt and J udea was under Egyptian rule. When the Greek Empire in Syria took over, they were not as tolerant as the Egyptians, who had allowed the Judeans to run the Temple and live out their culture. The ruler, Antiochus, wanted everyone under his dominion to assimilate and the Temple was desecrated. Finally, the Jews revolted. A group of Jews, led by Mattathias and his son, Judah the Maccabee, fought for several years, the r abbi said. Finally, there was a miracle. Though they were few in number, they defeated the well-armed Syr ian Greek army and sent them back to Syria. The Jews found the Temple desecrated and prepared to reconsecrate it for Jewish worship. In fact, Chanukah means dedication in H ebrew. There is an eternal light that always burns in a sanctuary, the r abbi said. They went to light it and they found only a little bit of olive oil that would last a day or so. They had been unable to celebrate the festivals under Syrian rule and wanted to model it after the festival S ukkot, which lasts eight days. The oil lasted eight days instead of one. That was the miracle. R abbi Birnholz said there is a message beyond that miracle. I t was a fight for freedom, for tolerance, for caring for others, he said. Even in dark times, there are ways to start with a little light and see it grow physically and spiritually. One of the most important symbols of the holiday is the ninebranched candlestick known as the menorah. Eight candles stand for each day of Chanukah and the taller one is used to light the others. On each night of Chanukah, an additional candle is lit, until the entire M enorah glows. Originally, there were seven branches for seven days of the w eek, the rabbi said. It was adapted for Chanukah with eight branches and a ninth for help, as a re minder of the miracle of the oil. Y ou light one on the first day and increase the light, the rabbi said. You are at the end of the month of Kislev, closest to the winter solstice, approaching a new moon. There is increasing light and the world will continue through the dark time of winter. Chanukah is a family holiday that starts off, like all Jewish holidays, with the setting of the sun. There are songs, the rabbi said. Its a festive time, even if its cold and dark. There are latkes, or potato pancakes, fried in olive oil. This was the olive oil holiday because the olives would be picked at Sukkot and the new crop of olive oil would be ready for Chanukah. In Isr ael, they eat jelly doughnuts. A popular game is the spinning of a top known as a dreidl. It has four Hebrew letters on it that symBy Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See MIRACLE, Page 14 Autograph line tickets will be issued with books purchased from the Vero Beach Book Center G.P.

7December 2011FOREVER YOU NG INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Having a plan a good way to deal with holidays VERO BEACH For many, the holidays evoke wonderful memories of friends and families, of celebrations and presents and happy times. However, for some, the holidays have changed because families are far away, loved ones are gone and children are grown. H eather Simmons is a licensed clinical social worker and registered nurse at Indian River Medical Center. H er advice for those coping with change is to have a plan. I t s important to mentally prepare y ourself, she said. Anticipation is often worse than the actual day. If we anticipate we will be lonely, we probably will be. I f we make a plan to get involved at a senior center or with a church, help someone else or pick up the phone to call friends, we mentally prepare ourselves. Those of us in Florida are often dealing with physical and financial limitations. It may not be possible to make that trip up north to see the grandkids. Its not as much fun to decorate if no ones coming. Those are some of the thoughts people often have. Ms. Simmons again suggests having a plan to avoid the depression that may occur because things have changed. Dont wait for Dec. 24 to get involved, she said. Ask yourself, how can I change the tradition to make do with what I have? Maybe instead of a large tree, its a smaller, table-top one. F ind out whats happening at the churches or senior centers. Sharing and helping others is a way of helping ourselves. One way to enjoy the gift of giving is to pick an angel off the trees at many stores. They give the first name and age of a child and what the child needs and wants for Christmas. While you will not see the child receive gift, you have the fun of shopping and a reward, as well. Y ou can anticipate little eyes big and round when they open it, Ms. Si mmons said. D epression is very common among older people and many do not seek help. The hardest thing for many seniors is still the stigma of reaching out and asking for help, Ms. Simmons said. If I could give one guideline, it would be that alcohol does not bring cheer to the lonely. F lexibility is also important, Ms. S immons said. You may have to do things differently. Perhaps you take a short trip and celebrate the holidays a little early. Maybe you can gather friends together on Dec. 23 and make a party. B e proactive, she said. Theres no one way to celebrate a traditions. Its about giving. Giving makes you feel better. If you still feel stressed about the holidays, Ms. Simmons has one more bit of advice. Always turn stressed into desserts. Thats stressed spelled backwards. If you have been feeling sad, withdrawing, have lost interest in your usual activities and are worrying, you may have depression. T alk to your doctor.If you cannot do that,call Indian River Medical Centers A ssessment and Referral line.A psychiatric nurse is on call round-the-clock and can point you towards help.It is available.Call (772) 567-4311,ext.3717. By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor Nutcracker swings to a new beat VERO BEACH You may think you know The Nutcracker Ballet, but y ou havent seen it like this before. F or the second year, Riverside Childrens Theatres Dance Conservatory will present choreographer and librettist Adam Schnells version of the classic tale, The Nutcracker in S wing Time. S et in a private girls school in New England in 1938, the production features a version of the Tchaikovsky score, transposed by David Berger, B illy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. I t s a whole different animal, Mr. Schnell said. We were looking for a project for the dance department of the Childrens Theatre. There are so many student productions of The N utcracker. We have a strong classical ballet program, but many students are also in musicals and taking tap and modern dance. We wanted something our kids could do that is unique for them. Mr. Schnell, who was formerly a dancer and chorographer with companies including the Sarasota Ballet, Nev ada Ballet Theatre and Les Ballets Tr ocadero de Monte Carlo, was familiar with a production by Donald Berg entitled The Harlem Nutcracker. The jazz greats had taken the Tchaikovsky score and adapted it for that production, set in Harlem after W orld War II. That production ceased in 2002, Mr. Schnell said. No one was using the score and we secured the rights to it. I tailor-made the story so that it would work for our kids and be sustainable from year to year. Mr. Schnell set the story in 1938 so that it was before the country plunged into war. I wanted the energy and optimism or that era, he said. I didnt want the WW II Nutcracker. The production takes advantage of Riverside Theatres strengths. S ets and props are not a problem because we have our own shops, Mr. Schnell said. I wanted the costumes to have a nod to classical costumes. I contacted Travis Halsey, a friend at the Joffrey Ballet. Seventy-five percent of the clothes were built for us. One of the cool things is a Chinese dragon puppet for the Dance of the Chinese Acrobats. He can make a tutu and a dragon. Mr. Schnell didnt have far to look for the set designer. Jon Moses, managing director of the Riverside, took on that task. I v e known him since he was technical director, Mr. Schnell said. H e s not designing much anymore. I asked him if he wanted to design the sets and he took on that responsibility on top of everything else he does around here. This production takes place in the Anne Morton Theatre. With 200 seats, it is a more intimate space than the main stage. T o build an audience for dance, y ou have to bring them close to the action, Mr. Schnell said. I wanted it to be in an intimate setting where they felt a part of the action. F or the chorographer, this been a r ewarding project. N obody has heard this version of the score before and Im only the third choreographer to tackle it, he said. I t s what the Riverside does. We try to put our stamp on it. I t s inspiring to me as a dancer. I cant tell you the number of classical N utcrackers Ive been in, and to take Heather SimmonsBy Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See NUTCRACKER, Page 17

How ever, if consumers are determining the value of a AAA membership based on the amount of emergency r oad service that they may need, then they are missing out on the features and benefits that a AAA membership truly offers. The truth is, that the value of membership comes not only from r oad service, but from the many discounts and services that members receive. A visit to a AAA office or to AAA.com is the quickest and easiest way for a member to take advantage of these money-saving benefits. Ma ny AAA members have taken the time to get Maps and TripTiks from their local AAA office, but they may not have taken the time to sit with a AAA travel professional to explore fantastic travel representatives for cruise and tour adventures. S imilarly, they may not have sat with a AAA insurance professional for a competitive quote on home or auto insurance. The insurance professionals at AAA in Vero Beach have over 40 years combined experience in providing protection thats right for peoples individual needs. Most homeowners in Indian River County qualify for AAAs Package Policy for Home & A uto, which can save money by combining home and auto insurance into one policy.

In partnering with the Indian River Ma ll this holiday season, a AAA discount will be offered to all members coming to the shopping center to have photos done with Santa. AAA will have representatives at the mall to answer questions about insurance, travel, and membership.

For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back ov er the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980s when my younger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small rural outpost about five miles west of the S t. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge Ocala N ational Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around C entral Florida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig roast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had raised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. F irst, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others went into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Lindas w ell-fortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) reached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. Having regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of A Christmas Carol. As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cr atchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this round. Now, for a big time pig roast like this to be successful the animal must be turned regularly. That task r equired four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin Randy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we we re all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we were able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasnt burned seemed to be cooked pretty w ell. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog had turned out OK, considering the cooks lapse in sobriety and hence, attention. No one but me seemed to mind that there was no sauce. Right at the top of the hill on Lindas property grew a Florida cedar tree over 30 feet tall. Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar. When it was completely dark we plugged it in amid oohs and aahs. Later we we re told it could be seen for miles. Of course, the women began to sing Christmas songs and the hungover men tried to join in as well as they could. It was certainly a Christmas to remember. S adly, my sister Linda, who was a true baby boomer (born in 1947), passed away in 2003. But memories like these of that crazy pig roast keep her in our hearts especially during the holidays. These days family is still so important this time of year. My wife Lana and I center our holidays around our daughter Shaylas beautiful 8-year-old, our granddaughter Delayna.

(usually) Times change, dress changes, Even THE CHANGE has changed. I know some of us (usually the men-folk) yearn for the Old Days when things were simpler (For them!) but I dont think I would have fared very well at all. I cannot picture myself in a woolen bathing suit r ushing home from taking the kids to the beach so I can have a homecooked lunch waiting for my husband when he gets home from the polls while fighting hot flashes Dur ing prohibition. F amilies have certainly changed; when I go to my grandsons high school football games I find myself surrounded by my son, his younger children, his beautiful new wife, her children, my ex-daughter-in-law, her new husband, their new daughter and my sons ex-mother-in-law. Each and every one of us is standing, y elling and slapping each other on the back when our team scores. M ost symptoms of THE CHANGE are now treatable to a certain extent, shortening the late night hours spent fanning ourselves with the freezer door considerably. H olidays may be one constant in our lives, but the way we celebrate has certainly come a long way. When my children were young we usually had the big family day at our house. Due in large part to the fact that I was usually absent from the family meetings where location was decided, my husbands family would converge in the morning, cousins usually began running and screaming in all directions just about the time Macys parade began, we would be finishing the last piece of pie (for the moment) just as the game came on, then coffee and more pie during half time. As my family aged and grew with the addition of significant others, the arrival of my grandchildren and new sets of in-laws, we re-invented our celebrations as necessary. I began serving a brunch on the holidays. We all brought something for brunch and my children could spend half the day with us then be free to enjoy turkey and trimmings with the other side of their families. C ontrary to popular opinion, (usually from the other side of the families) I did not arrange things this way to have the pleasure of my grandchildrens company when they were awake and bright in the morning, not tired and cranky later in the afternoon. Nor was it my intention to be the Grammy who loves them the most by filling them with hand/turkey cookies or gingerbread men just to send them to their other grandparents.

Youve likely been married, divorced or widowed at this stage in your life, and out of the dating game for a while. And with the advent of online dating sites and social networking, meeting people has become both easier (as close as your computer) and harder than ever (is the person really who he or she says they are?).

M any researchers ignore these r ecords completely, or only look at one or two records for their family, assuming they have learned all the facts they need. Each family should be followed all the way back through the census every 10 years, picking up children, parents, brothers and sisters, in-laws and any other relatives that show up in the household or neighborhood. Fr om 1790-1840, the census only named the head of the household, and gave the number of people living in the house. From 1850 forward, each member of the household was named, with their sex, age, and place of birth. Each census became more complex, asking more questions, adding relationships, occupations, parents places of birth, number of years married, number of children given birth to, and other pertinent clues. S tarting with the 1930 census, and working backward, you should look at y our family, taking down all the information given and looking at the neighboring families. Often, other family members are living nearby, and these need to be noted, also. If there are other families with the same surname, they are possibly parents, brothers, uncles and cousins. Johns father may be living next door to him, and in his household is grandma or grandpa. Viola!! You have three generations laid out on one or two pages. As you work your way through each census, you will find differences in the spellings of names, family members will come and go, and the family will move around the country. Each census taker had his own style. Some used only initials, some used only a first name regardless of which name is preferred. Sometimes the correct name is used, the next time it will be a nickname. Ages also will change from census to census. Use this information as a guide and not as absolute fact.

U sing and regularly updating antivirus and anti-spyware software on your computer can also help to safeguard y our information from identity theft. Ne ver email personal information, such as account numbers or your social security number, to anyone, not even to y ourself. Offline: It s a smart practice to review credit card and bank statements as soon as they arrive to ensure that all activity on y our accounts is accurate. U.S. consumers are entitled to one free credit report a year from the three main credit bureaus. Regularly reviewing your credit report lets you see if there are any interactions with companies you havent contacted or accounts you didnt open. If a bill or statement you regularly r eceive doesnt arrive as scheduled, follow up with the sender to find out why. U se a paper shredder to shred any documents with account numbers, your social security number even your address. It will help deter dumpster diver identity thieves from obtaining y our personal information. Ne ver carry your Social Security card or number in your wallet or purse. When writing checks, avoid listing y our Social Security number, telephone or drivers license number, if possible. Another way to help safeguard y ourself is to subscribe to a program, such as TD Insurances ITAC Sentinel P lus, that offers to help protect you from identity theft by monitoring your accounts and personal information for y ou and sending you an alert if there is certain activity that could indicate identity theft. One last tip: If you or anyone you know may have fallen victim to identity theft, contact the three major credit bureaus right away E quifax, Experian and TransUnion. Doing so will let them place a fraud alert on your credit reports and help to ensure that no more fraudulent activities take place. Then, close the accounts that you think have been jeopardized. File a police report and contact the Federal Tr ade Commission immediately to file a complaint, so they can record the fraudulent activity and work with other agencies to track down thieves. F ollowing these tips may help prevent a dreaded call or piece of mail that tells y ou your information is being used by someone without your permission.
