This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads.Have it her wayAt a fast-food restaurant that advertises, Have it your way, an employee wanted to have it her way to work and get extra money to spend. The Fort Pierce woman was arrested after a customer r eported someone used his debit card to make purchases. The customer told authorities he paid for his food order at the restaurant, but failed to notice the employee did not return his debit card. The customer reported he paid $19.10 for his food order. A pparently, not long after that, he got a call from a bank saying someone had attempted to use his debit card to make a $900 purchase at a store. The employee who used the debit card later said she bought cigarettes, beer, Red B ull, barbecue food and then attempted to buy a $900 necklace for her boyfriend.

The foundations annual open house is scheduled for Jan. 15 at the Vero Beach city marina storage complex, just south of the Vero B each Yacht Club. Within the complex, volunteers and students work together to build sailing dinghies. Visitors can talk with program volunteers, student sailors, view small sailboats and more in the groups shop and storage area at the city marina. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and pizza will be served, said Chris Pope, one of the event organizers. The nonprofit will sell Tshirts to raise funds for the sailing program, but financial donations of any size are always welcome. The boats students build and learn to sail are 8-foot O ptimist wooden sailing dinghies from precut kits that cost about $1,600, Mrs. P ope said. A majority of the boats current students practice their sailing skills on were purchased with donated funds and allowed students who couldnt afford to purchase their own kit to still learn how to sail, she said. W e hold our open house on Martin Luther King Jr. D ay because children are out of school and we hope that they can come, Mrs. P ope said. S ailing instruction is available to any child in In dian River County between the ages of 7 and 15. Usually past that age, the teens become too large for the sailing dinghies the foundation currently uses, she said. All children have to pass a swimming test, as well. S tudents and volunteers who are building boats meet at the marina from 9 a.m. to noon nearly every Saturday. The sailors meet nearly every Saturday from noon until 3 p.m. to practice their skills, and if the w eather is bad, they receive classroom instruction, Mrs. Pope said.

framing hammer to bludgeon his parents to death on J uly 16. When police arrived at the home after the murders, T yler initially told them his parents were out of town, police said. B ut officers found his parents dead on the floor of the master bedroom, covered in a variety of items. The hammer was lying between the bodies, police said. A juvenile told authorities T yler told him he was going to kill his parents and then later confessing to killing them.Prisoners escape from Indian River County jailI ndian River County authorities scrambled after two prisoners one convicted of murder and the other awaiting trial on a charge of murder escaped from the Indian River County jail. R ondell H. Reed, 52, and Leviticus Uriah Taylor, 25, escaped Oct. 23 by getting through a vent and a locked door and making their way ov er several raiser-wire topped fences. The investigation as to how they accomplished that continued weeks later. Mr. Taylors respite from incarceration didnt occur long, as the next day a Martin County detective spotted a man fitting his description walking down U.S. 1 in Stuart. Mr. Taylor is believed to have gone to a theater and watched a movie during his brief period of freedom. He was convicted of murdering Nester Perez of Vero B each during a 2009 burglary. M eanwhile, authorities in W arren County, Ohio, arrested Mr. Reed after a brief chase on Interstate-75. Dur ing his escape, Mr. R eed hid in a vacant house in Sebastian, stole a car and then stole another vehicle in M acon, Ga. He was arrested earlier in the year and charged in connection with the murder of J ames Malone, who owned Ji m s Automotive in Sebastian. S ince his escape, Mr. Reed pled guilty to a charge of first-degree murder and has been sent to a state prison.Sheriff decides not to seek re-electionMar tin County Sheriff R obert Crowder, who has held his position for 20 years and worked in law enforcement for nearly half a century announced he will not seek re-election. In the wake of the announcement, two Martin C ounty residents announced their decisions to seek election in 2012. One is State Rep. William Sny der, who once served as a major in the Martin County Sheriffs Office. The other is John Pietruszewski, a major with the Martin County Sheriffs Office, who has worked there for 28 years. Elsewhere on the Treasure C oast, St. Lucie County S heriff Ken Mascara announced his candidacy for re-election. o far no one has announced they will oppose him.Decapitated body found in Indian River CountyA decapitated body, later identified as that of Douglas Fr asier Jr. 21, of Vero Beach, was discovered in the backyard of a foreclosed house w est of Vero Beach. At the time of his murder, Mr. Frasier was on probation after being convicted of burglary and theft. As of press time, Indian River County authorities had made no arrests in connection with the murder. A uthorities said the death was a homicide, but have r eleased few details beyond that. There has been speculation that animals were r esponsible for the body being decapitated.Man murders t wo women, then commits suicideA pparently some type of argument resulted in a Fort Pierce man shooting his wife and her mother before killing himself at their residence at 511 Quincy Ave. The bodies of Robin Carrier, 49, and her daughter, S tephanie Carrier, 22, were found in the kitchen of the r esidence. P olice discovered the body of Christopher Covington inside the garage. A 3-year-old daughter of Mr. Covington and Ms. Carr ier was found unharmed.Employee accused of murdering attorneyAfter an attorney in St. L ucie County accused one employee of stealing from him, authorities say she and her boyfriend, who was also an employee of the attorney, conspired to murder him. Thomas J. Barnard, the boyfriend, was arrested earlier this year and accused of murdering Ashley Ronald P ollow, the attorney, on Nov. 28, 2010 and then pouring sulfuric acid on his body. An informant told police that Mr. Barnard confessed to the murder after they talked about a book written by O .J. Simpson. In the book, I f I Did It, Mr. Simpson talked hypothetically about the murders of Nicole Bro wn Simpson, his then exwife and Ronald Goldman, her friend. He was acquitted of those murders. In an odd twist involving Mr. Pollow, it was disclosed after his murder, that law enforcement officers had saved Mr. Pollow from possibly being murdered. A man who was charged with killing his mother in Po rt S t. Lucie went to Mr. P ollows residence and threatened to kill him, accusing him of trying to steal his girlfriend, authorities said. Lawmen, who tracked the man to Mr. Pollows residence, then arrested him.P olice arrest gang membersFo rt Pierce Police arrested members of the 13th Street gang last February, saying they were linked to murders, drug sales and robberies. P olice said the investigation indicated members of the gang were responsible for several unsolved homicides during the past 15 y ears. The five arrested members of the gang were identified to police as being enforcers.Three arrested in connection with murderS t. Lucie County Sheriffs Office investigators arrested three young men in connection with the murder of another in Lakewood Park. In vestigators believe the shooting followed a fight that resulted from a car running over a bottle. The three suspects are believed to have been leaving the residence when their vehicle ran over the bottle. They apparently thought someone had thrown something at the vehicle. Later, the suspects are believed to have returned to the residence and started firing shots into the residence. D aniel White, a resident of the house, was shot and subsequently died. Charged with first-degree murder in connection with his death were Samuel E ugene Cleare, Greg Anthony Ferraro and Joshua TroyD avid Giovengo.T wo men charged with murder in death of Vero Beach manU ntil earlier this month, there hadnt been a murder on the beach side of Vero B each in 15 years. B ut that changed when police say two men entered the residence of Brian Simpson, 41, to burglarize it. The burglary turned into murder when Mr. Simpson arrived home and then was fatally shot. H enry Jones Jr. 23, and Dar ius Robinson, 16, were charged with first-degree murder in connection with the murder of Mr. Simpson. The two were nabbed days after the murder when they are believed to have r eturned to retrieve the murder weapon, which was stashed on the island. S ome reported the men we re behaving suspiciously, which led to police arresting them on a charge of loitering and prowling.Man shot after responding to companionship adIn one of the more unusual crime stories that made news during 2011, a Martin C ounty man was shot after he responded in Stuart to an ad for companionship. J ason Diodato and his wife, Sarah, placed the ad. I nitially, Mr. Diodato told authorities he shot the man after he attacked his wife and Mr. Diodato. But authorities later arrested Mr. D iodato, accusing him of shooting the man after he wanted the money back that he had paid to have companionship with Ms. Diodato. Ms. Diodato was subsequently charged with two counts of engaging in prostitution. F riday, December 30, 2011 A2 Sebastian River AreaHometown News DR.

P layers can pre-register for the fundraising event now and pay $15. Same-day registration will be available on a limited basis at $5 per inning as available, a press release said. The idea for the fundraiser came from a teammate, Jordan Mazzerella. The Vero B each community has jumped onboard to help out, Mr. Lawson said. This is an unbelievable community effort. Im impressed and touched at the ov erwhelming support for the S impson family. It really tells y ou something about the good out there, he said. In addition to the player fee, funds raised at concessions and during raffles throughout the day will support the cause. S pecial guests are scheduled to visit the field during the event, including Jarrod S altalamacchia, starting catcher for the Boston Red So x and former pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ron P erranowski, and will be available to sign autographs, Mr. Lawson said. Br ian was a great dad, and loved and supported his son in every possible way. They are a great family and we wanted to do something for them, he said.

The state is willing to r enegotiate the employment numbers in the package to reflect the economic times, she said. The company received $10.7 million in 2008, $6.7 million from the state and $4 million from the local government. Those funds we re invested in aircraft r esearch and development and capital improvements. The state has not r equested that those funds be returned, Ms. Carlon said. The economy downtown hit the aviation industry quite hard and business numbers have been down, but with the investment of their parent company, Piper officials are confident of the future, despite a large setback with the suspension of the light-jet program in October. This fall, the official owners of Piper Aircraft took ov er direct ownership of the aviation company, said Ms. Carlon. Piper was purchased in spring 2009 from American C apital by an independent sovereign wealth fund managed by Imprimis, a corporate finance and investment management firm. The fund belonged to the ministry of finance of the government of Brunei. In O ctober, Imprimis stepped aside from their mi ddle man position and Piper is now directly reporting to and communicating with the government of Br unei, Ms. Carlon said. Br unei is committed to investing in the products put forth by Piper with a long-term relationship mentality, she said. The cancelation of the Piper Altaire program has nothing to do with the movement to direct communication with the government of Brunei, Ms. C arlon said.

The kids grow so much and learn so much. For many of them, the first time they are in the boat by themselves, its the first time in their life they have to make decisions for themselves. It matures them, teaches them to be selfr eliant and independent. It s amazing to see the confidence in them grow, she said. C ompetitive regattas are held in various places on the Space and Treasure C oasts, which is a great incentive to get the students to practice their best and learn all they can, Mrs. P ope said. C urrently, the Youth Sailing Foundation is looking for larger boats for larger and older students to transition into, and are hoping to find some in the next few months, so the students can continue following their passion in sailing, she said.

They had been told he was last seen going into a bedroom. Eventually, authorities found a hidden floor panel that led to a crawl space. The man was in the corner of the crawl space with insulation on him to conceal his location. When discovered, he said, I would have come out, but I didnt think you would find me down there. I didnt think you would look for me for a stupid out-of-county warrant. He thought wrong on both counts. And he may end up in a space that is almost as cramped as the crawl space.BlotterF rom page A1 more of the money was interest that would also be r eturned. A traffic impact fee is a fee imposed by local governments to offset the costs of new development and its impact on the road system. C ommissioner Bob Solari dissented on the vote because he believes all of the money should be refunded. C ounty staff wanted to use the whole amount to improve the Highway A1A and 17th Str eet intersection, but a county ordinance states the impact fee money must be spent within six years of being collected, or be returned to the property owners who paid it out. If unused after six years, the county then allows homeowners or those currently living on the property the impact fee paid for to apply for a r efund, for up to one year. If no one applies, the money reverts back to the countys possession. Earlier this year, it was brought to the commissioners attention that the process to get the refunds is confusing and difficult for average homeowners to understand, and the notification process of telling the homeowners the r efund is available, isnt clear either. Therefore, several members of the community said the money should still be paid to homeowners, since they werent aware they could get their money back. After much discussion, the commissioners voted to pay out the money owed to curr ent property owners in the area, who paid impact fees most recently, or the people who are currently living on the property, and work backward until the money runs out.

T eachers and students are under the gun to do all in their power to do well on the FCAT. Parents have witnessed their children living in fear of the coming test day. Florida taxpayers have invested millions to establish this extensive testing program, which is in constant change. Now the state board of education has unanimously approved a tougher scoring system for the FCAT. Bottom line: more students will fail! The idea of each state setting up its own testing program is WRONG! If, however, students are to be evaluated by tests, using a national testing program would be a better choice. F lorida students should be compared to students throughout the nation. Using a national testing program would save millions that are being spent every year to develop the FCAT. The money saved could be used to improve learning in the classroom. F lorida students will be seeking jobs throughout the Un ited States and therefore, need to see their performance as it compares with students throughout the country. I feel the FCAT is being used as a political tool to hurt public education. What happens in WashingtonIt s amazing what happens in Washington. When politicians want to grab credit, they shout from the roof tops. When they want to keep things from us, there is a deathly quiet. Pr esident Obama has decided to stop searching for illegal immigrants. It was a leak that let this information be disclosed to the public. F or years he has dragged his feet concerning illegals but this is the last straw. H alting enforcement of existing statutes flies in the face of the safety and security of law-abiding Americans.Unhappy holidaysP olls show that 95 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas and 84 percent describe themselves as Christians. We were disappointed, therefore, to enter a store and be greeted with happy holidays. That may be politically correct but we will not be returning to that store.Where are the jobs?Ev en though President Obama promised millions of new jobs when he promoted his multi-million stimulus program, very little was actually accomplished. It cost us a huge amount but we wound up with an astronomical debt. For mer New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson had it right when he said, My next door neighbors two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration.K eep the creeps in jailP olice have nabbed a man for stalking. Thats not such hot news, but what is astounding is that a background check reveals he had been arrested for stalking other women. He had been arrested four times in less than a month. This creep is being held for identity theft, harassment and related offenses. We expect judges to be fair but strict. W ouldnt it be nice if they would keep repeat offenders in jail?Is it the teachers?This nation is struggling with a public education system in decline and a new study by the American Enterprise I nstitute gives some reasons for our lack of success. There is a significant pay gap between overpaid teachers and lower paid, private-sector workers. It may be hard to believe but the SAT scores of college students majoring in education are far below the average of all other college students. Does this mean teachers are dumber than the others? And, if so, why are teachers getting the highest salaries? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

I can hardly believe 2012 is just a couple days away. If theres one thing I can count on this time of year, its the inevitable calls I get from people whove been fortunate enough to get a new machine for Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever holiday they celebrate and are puzzled as to how to get all of their stuff off of the old machine and onto the new one. M ost people are flabbergasted when they see just how much data has accumulated on their old machine over the years (especially if the machine is six or seven years old.) These files and such tend to grow, and since we usually only access things one file at a time, its hard to see the big picture and understand just how much data there actually is. So what do we do? Whats the best method to use for this type of project? W ell, my favorite way of accomplishing the task r equires a bit of hardware called an external USB hard drive. And one of the benefits of this method is that once all of the data is moved and the new machine is up and running, the external drive can then be used as a backup drive and the computer set up to back up all the data to it every night, a task that anyone who values their data should have set up anyway. Now when I mention an external USB drive, please understand Im not talking about one of these little 8gigabyte thumb drives that are small enough to hang on your key chain, but an actual external hard drive, with hundreds of gigabytes of storage space. A 250gigabyte external is about the smallest available these days but you can also find terabyte-sized drives (1,000 gigabytes) for under $100. T wo hundred fifty gigabytes is the smallest that Id r ecommend for this job. OK, so now you have your old machine, your new machine and an external hard drive. Whats next? W ell, plug the external drive into the old computer and create a new folder on the external drive. Call the folder from old or some other name that youll be able to recognize and work with and then you are going to want to copy everything from the C: drive of the old computer to the fr om old folder on the external drive. I recommend (and use myself) a program called ycopy available for free from www.download.com (just search for ycopy on the download.com page and it will come right up). I recommend ycopy because when it runs into a file that it cant copy (which it will), it makes a note of it and keeps going. The W indows file copy system, on the other hand, will stop leaving you trying to figure out what made it and what didnt. U sually the copy process can take several hours, but thats OK, you want to get everything it can so you dont have to keep going back to the old machine looking for forgotten files. If all goes well the from old folder on the external drive y ou should now have a full snapshot of all your data from the old machine. (Y ou can also use this time to set up your new machine if you havent already). Once the copy process is finished, shut down the old machine and unplug the external drive. Plug the external drive into the new machine and it should show up as a drive in the new computer. The next step is to copy the from old folder from the external drive to the desktop of the new machine. Again, the process may take a couple of hours, but the result is youll have a folder on your desktopT ransferring old stuff to new computer COMP UTE THISSE AN MCCARTHY 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.

The EF-IRC is among 800 charitable agencies representing 50 states in the U.S., across Canada and Puerto Rico and in 10 Latin American countries to be part of the program. The EF-IRC will distribute sneakers through the S neaker Exchange program that serves county public schools. The Education Foundation operates completely separate from the local school district and is funded almost entirely through private donations and grants. The foundation works closely with the local school district to prioritize program and funding needs. This unique structure allows the foundation to direct funding into classr ooms, thus avoiding r estrictions that often come with other funding sources. I n its third year, the goal of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 K ids program remains the same: to provide footwear, a basic necessity, to children who might otherwise go without, said LuAnn V ia, CEO of Payless. The success of the program over the past three y ears, and the number of children and families we have been able to assist, continues to drive our efforts.Unemployment is still very high, affecting many families that struggle to provide their children with basic essentials, she said. This is especially challenging during the holidays, and with the Education Foundation of Indian River Countys help, we hope to make a bigger impact than ever this year.

W aste-to-ethanol plant breaks ground The trash-to-fuel plant in I ndian River County broke ground in February and is estimated to create about 175 construction jobs over the next two years and about 50 full-time jobs long-term. The Indian River BioEnergy Center is designed to produce 8 million gallons of advanced bioethanol per y ear from renewable biomass including yard, wood and vegetative wastes, and generate clean renewable power for export to the local market, according to a press release. As a result of the company moving to the county and information about their progress being documented in trade magazines, other renewable energy, or green, companies have taken notice and have expressed initial interest in bringing some of their product to Indian River County, officials said.

Palm Bay won 62-52. SEBASTIAN The S ebastian River High School Sharks suffered a hard loss of 52-62 against the Palm Bay H igh School Pirates last T uesday. The teams were evenly matched, going head to head, even from the beginning of the game. S ebastians early points came from five 3point shots by Daniel M cDonald, Shelvick H enry and Norris Rogers. The first quarter showed spark from both teams, each finding the net after battling through the other teams defense. Thats where the spark fizzled, though. Palm Ba y surged ahead of S ebastian to lead the team in points and steals. W e came out in the second half extremely w ell, said Palm Bay C oach Joe Duffy. We needed to keep the inside plays well and we made some mistakes in the first quarter, but in the second half we worked inside. P alm Bay knew how to r ebound and easily read the offense, which relied heavily on 3-point shots, telling the Palm Bay defense to guard the outside of the court. S ebastian had to rely more on inside shots, which produced fewer points mainly due to inaccuracy. The speed of Palm Bay, moving the ball at the net, was faster than S ebastian could keep up with, using a zone defense, instead of manto-man, which left open P alm Bay players who we re ready to shoot. S ebastians play after the half was slow, killing the clock in trying to break past the Palm Bay defense that would read the play and steal. The fouls Sebastian made, added to Palm B ays total as they made five of six free throws. These fouls happened after two 3-point shots by M cDonald, closing the point margin again. I felt good after the 10-point lead, said Pirates Derylton Hiss. I feel like we had it at that point. We had to calm down and when we did that we focused. We came out playing well.

A giant presentation check was handed to Pat Geyer, Camp Havens project manager. The purpose of the Camp Ha ven Project is to offer a safe, legal place to sleep, while providing casemanagement support and lifeskills education for county r esidents who intend to r ise out of homelessness. Although The Source has been working in the county for more than 16 years, offering a wide range of services to the needy and indigent, the organization has never been able to provide housing other than emergency cold night shelter for those in need. The Camp Haven Project will bring much needed change to that limitation. F or more than a year the leadership team of The S ource has been working with committees comprised of a cross section of community leaders to build a formal plan to create Camp Haven, said S onya Morrison, executive director of The Source. W alter and Lalitas generous donation has made it possible to take the next important steps that will allow for the acquisition and development of a site. Ca mp Haven is becoming a r eality. On Jan. 26, the next major step in developing the project will take place. The first fundraising event will take place in the Holy Cross Parish Hall. The event will feature an internationally known speaker. The Source is a Christian outreach and resource center for homeless individuals and families at-risk. The doors are open six days a week to provide people in need with nourishment for the body and soul. The ministry offers daily hot meals, an emergency food pantry, clothing, showers, counseling, support groups and a host of other services. It is located at 1015 Commerce Ave., in Vero Beach.

For Hometown News F riday, December 30, 2011 B4 Sebastian River AreaHometown News Clubs & classes Hello smart shoppers, what happens to the years? They seem to fly by. No matter how early I start writing to get in all I want for the holidays I never start early enough. I guess I have to jump in right after Labor Day. Who could have imagined 2012? When I was a teenager I believed by now we would be flying around in space ships and here we are still driving in cars. It's New Years Eve, too late for appropriate recipes. The lectures on eating right, getting in shape, etc., etc. will have to wait. I'm going to devote this column and the next to delectable desserts you will be making for special occasions and then get back on track to all the other stuff. R eal New York cheesecake is only the beginning. Some recipes require candied fruits; buy them now, they are never available during the year. H appy New Year! N N E E W Y W Y O O R R K K C C H H E E E E S S E E C C AKE AKE This cheesecake will be by far the best you've ever tasted. It is the true, heavy, rich, New York cheesecake that dreams are made of. Many r ecipes were tried until I finally learned that the secret to a spectacular cheesecake is not only in the ingredients but in the method of baking. This makes a large cake, you will need a 9or 10-inch spring form pan. Gr aham cracker crust Pr epare graham cracker crust according to the directions on the box, adding 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds if you like. Press into bottom of spring form pan and bake at 375-degree for 10 minutes. Let cool. While crust is baking, prepare filling. 2-1/2 pounds cream cheese (five 8-ounce packages), softened 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon each of grated lemon and orange rind 1/4-teaspoon vanilla extract 1-3/4 cups sugar 5 large eggs 2 egg yolks 1/4-cup heavy cream C ombine first 4 ingredients, beat with an electric mixer at second speed. Add sugar gradually. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating lightly after each addition. (If the speed is too high when adding the eggs, too much air gets into the batter and produces a cake of inferior consistency). Stir in cream. P our into prepared pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. (During baking place a pan of water on the bottom rack to prevent cake from cracking). R educe heat to 300 degrees; continue baking 1 to 1-1/2 hours until almost set in center. Tu rn ov en off and leave cake in for 1 hour longer. Open oven door and leave cake in 10 minutes longer. Let cool, chill, remove sides of pan and top with any glaze or fruit of your choice or serve plain with a side or two of different fruit toppings. IT IT ALIAN C ALIAN C A A S S S S A A T T A C A C AKE AKE (N (N I I B) B) This recipe is from my cousin, Ermalina. The cake is purchased from the supermarket bakery or a bakery store. It is a high cake. 1 sponge cake 1 container (2 pounds) r icotta cheese 1 cup confectioner's sugar 3 squares semi-sweet chocolate, chopped fine 5 tablespoons chopped pistachio nuts 1 cup candied fruit 3/4-tablespoon orange liquor 1/3-cup raspberry jam B eat ricotta in a large bowl until smooth. Add sugar, chocolate, nuts and candied fruit (save best pieces to decorate top of cake). C ut cake into 3 or 4 thin layers. M oisten top of each layer with liquor then spread a little jam over top and top with some ricotta mixture. Continue stacking layers, leaving top of cake plain. Chill until set, (at least 2 hours). Cover top with leftover ricotta mixture or dust with confectioner's sugar. Decorated with reserved fruit. B B ANANA ANANA S S FO FO STE STE R (N R (N I I B) B) Regular and low fat, ser Regular and low fat, ser ves ves 3 to 4 3 to 4 When my son, Bill, took a cooking course from a world famous chef he made us this decadent dessert. Now with healthy butter substitutes such as Smart Balance you can enjoy this treat without the saturated fat. 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) butter or Smart Balance 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) light brown sugar, firmly packed 1/4-teaspoon cinnamon 1/4-cup banana liqueur* 2 bananas peeled and cut in half crosswise and then lengthwise 1/2-cup slivered almonds (optional) M elt butter in skillet, add brown sugar and cook stirring constantly until sugar melts and color turns a light brown. If you choose to add the almonds, toast them in the butter-sugar mixture until they are golden. A dd the cinnamon and liqueur and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the bananas, basting and warming them in the syrup, turning once. C ool slightly and serve over v anilla ice cream. If alcohol is not an option, substitute 1/2 tsp. vanilla. This was originally a flamb and the alcohol was added at the end and flamed. I don't do flames too well so I skip that step.

F riday, December 30, 2011 B6 Sebastian River AreaHometown News D D e e a a n n A A . L L u u s s a a r r d d i i , M M D D New Patients are always welcome Save hundreds of dollars every week with coupons & discounts from our local advertisers! It s hard to believe the y ear is almost over. I hope that all of you found 2011 to be a better y ear than 2010. I also wish that 2012 brings you health and happiness. As I look back on 2011, I r emember a year filled with highs and lows in our sport. I present to you my top seven stories in golf for 2011: No 7: Can we please get a muzzle for caddies? B etween Steve Williams and Jo LaCava, there were more stories written about caddies than half the players on tour. The very public split of W illiams and Tiger Woods became a hot story this summer. Williams joined with Adam Scott, and the duo quickly won. Tigers struggles continued, and the media coverage became a little National Enquirerlike. No 6: In this game, we always talk about bouncing back. No one had a bigger bounce-back in 2011 than Rory Mc Ilroy. After a Masters debacle that made Greg Norman wince, McIlroy thrashed the field and Congressional in the next major. McIlroy won by eight and broke the scoring record by four shots. No 5: There is a young woman for the world to take note of. Her name is Lexi Thompson. At 16, she put on a clinic at the Navistar Classic and became the y oungest LPGA winner ever. S he went on to add a win at the Dubai Ladies Masters to become the secondy oungest winner on the ladies European tour and will play as a member of the LPGA Tour in 2012. No. 4: If you were a betting person and took D arren Clarke to win the O pen Championship, you may have made enough to r etire. Clarke was a very long 200-1 shot with bookmakers to hoist the Claret Jug. In fact, he was 28-1 to be low Ir ishman and there were only four in the field! F or those of us who like to take life and golf a little less seriously than most, Clarkes win was fantastic. I know I had a few cigars and a stout or two in celebration. No 3: There appears to be a new dominant world No. 1, and her name is Yani T seng. She rolled through the 2011 ladies schedule, picking up a dozen wins, including a pair of major titles. T seng led in nearly every statistical category and finished atop the money list. In her homeland of T aiwan, her appearance led to record attendance. No 2: If any group needed to get the proverbial monkey off its back, it was the European Solheim Cup T eam. F or the first time in eight y ears, Europe hosted the trophy. Doing so with a boisterous home crowd in front of Killeen Castle made it all the more special. On my list, the event was the best one of the year. S undays last 60 minutes or so provided golf fans with the ultimate cliffhanger. M atches went back and forth with the highlight being Suzann Pettersen finishing with three straight birdies to defeat Michelle W ie to help secure the cup. No 1: On May 7, our sport lost an icon. At the young age of 54, Seve Ballesteros passed away. Se ve was to the European tour what Arnold Palmer was to the U.S. tour so many y ears ago. Y ou will be hard-pressed to find anyone who loved this game more than Seve. H is artistry and genius were untouched by any of his peers. He showed us that while you cant hit every shot perfectly, you shouldnt give up, and if you use your imagination, you can find a way to post a great score. M ost of all, Seve was one of the most genuine of gentlemen I have ever met. O ur sport was blessed to have him, and something less with his loss.

This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads.Have it her wayAt a fast-food restaurant that advertises, "Have it your way," an employee wanted to have it her way to work and get extra money to spend. The Fort Pierce woman was arrested after a customer r eported someone used his debit card to make purchases. The customer told authorities he paid for his food order at the restaurant, but failed to notice the employee did not return his debit card. The customer reported he paid $19.10 for his food order. A pparently, not long after that, he got a call from a bank saying someone had attempted to use his debit card to make a $900 purchase at a store. The employee who used the debit card later said she bought cigarettes, beer, Red B ull, barbecue food and then attempted to buy a $900 necklace for her boyfriend. If the woman ends up serving time in jail or prison, she probably won't get a choice of extra pickles or mayonnaise on her hamburger.What you get for thinking the wrong wayA bondsman and Indian River County authorities spent more than three hours looking for a Fellsmere man T op seven stories in golf in 2 011 Couple supports plans for a program to help the homeless CO MMUNITYB1 GOLF B6 A HELPING HAND TOP GO LF STORIES IN DEXBusinessA7 Classified B7 Crossword B5 Golf B6 ObituariesB6 Out & About B1 P olice Report A5 Rants & Raves A6 Star Scopes B1 V iewpoint A6 BE ST OF THE BLOTTERJA Y MEISEL See B LOTTER, A5Some impact fees to be refunded soonINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Refunding unused traffic impact fees, the topic of many a long discussion in the Indian River C ounty Commission chambers this year, may soon find its way to the pockets of some county r esidents.

Scott and his family were w ell-known in baseball circles in the area. Scott has played for the Gifford Middle School baseball team, the Vero Beach Junior Baseball League and the Treasure C oast Hurricanes travel baseball team, so it seemed fitting to help and support the family in a sport that Mr. S impson loved and shared with his family, said Larry Lawson, coach of the Treasure Coast Hurricanes 14and under travel team.

The foundation's annual open house is scheduled for Jan. 15 at the Vero Beach city marina storage complex, just south of the Vero B each Yacht Club. Within the complex, volunteers and students work together to build sailing dinghies. V isitors can talk with program volunteers, student sailors, view small sailboats and more in the group's shop and storage area at the city marina. The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and pizza will be served, said Chris Pope, one of the event organizers. The nonprofit will sell Tshirts to raise funds for the sailing program, but financial donations of any size are always welcome. The boats students build and learn to sail are 8-foot "O ptimist" wooden sailing dinghies from precut kits that cost about $1,600, Mrs. P ope said. A majority of the boats current students practice their sailing skills on were purchased with donated funds and allowed students who couldn't afford to purchase their own kit to still learn how to sail, she said. "W e hold our open house on Martin Luther King Jr. D ay because children are out of school and we hope that they can come," Mrs. P ope said. S ailing instruction is available to any child in In dian River County between the ages of 7 and 15. Usually past that age, the teens become too large for the sailing dinghies the foundation currently uses, she said. All children have to pass a swimming test, as well. S tudents and volunteers who are building boats meet at the marina from 9 a.m. to noon nearly every Satur day. The sailors meet nearly every Saturday from noon until 3 p.m. to practice their skills, and if the w eather is bad, they receive classroom instruction, Mrs. Pope said. B ecause of the holidays, the next time the students will meet will be Jan. 7.

framing hammer to bludgeon his parents to death on J uly 16. When police arrived at the home after the murders, T yler initially told them his parents were out of town, police said. B ut officers found his parents dead on the floor of the master bedroom, covered in a variety of items. The hammer was lying between the bodies, police said. A juvenile told authorities T yler told him he was going to kill his parents and then later confessing to killing them.Prisoners escape from Indian River County jailI ndian River County authorities scrambled after two prisoners one convicted of murder and the other awaiting trial on a charge of murder escaped from the Indian River County jail. R ondell H. Reed, 52, and Leviticus Uriah Taylor, 25, escaped Oct. 23 by getting through a vent and a locked door and making their way ov er several raiser-wire topped fences. The investigation as to how they accomplished that continued weeks later. Mr. Taylor's respite from incarceration didn't occur long, as the next day a Martin County detective spotted a man fitting his description walking down U.S. 1 in Stuart. Mr. Taylor is believed to have gone to a theater and watched a movie during his brief period of freedom. He was convicted of murdering Nester Perez of Vero B each during a 2009 burglary. M eanwhile, authorities in W arren County, Ohio, arrested Mr. Reed after a brief chase on Interstate-75. Dur ing his escape, Mr. R eed hid in a vacant house in Sebastian, stole a car and then stole another vehicle in M acon, Ga. He was arrested earlier in the year and charged in connection with the murder of J ames Malone, who owned Ji m' s Automotive in Sebastian. S ince his escape, Mr. Reed pled guilty to a charge of first-degree murder and has been sent to a state prison.Sheriff decides not to seek re-electionMa r tin County Sheriff R obert Crowder, who has held his position for 20 years and worked in law enforcement for nearly half a century announced he will not seek re-election. In the wake of the announcement, two Martin C ounty residents announced their decisions to seek election in 2012. One is State Rep. William Sn y der, who once served as a major in the Martin County Sheriff's Office. The other is John Pietruszewski, a major with the Martin County Sheriff's Office, who has worked there for 28 years. Elsewhere on the Treasure C oast, St. Lucie County S heriff Ken Mascara announced his candidacy for re-election. o far no one has announced they will oppose him.Decapitated body found in Indian River CountyA decapitated body, later identified as that of Douglas Fr asier Jr. 21, of Vero Beach, was discovered in the backyard of a foreclosed house w est of Vero Beach. At the time of his murder, Mr. Frasier was on probation after being convicted of burglary and theft. As of press time, Indian River County authorities had made no arrests in connection with the murder. A uthorities said the death was a homicide, but have r eleased few details beyond that. There has been speculation that animals were r esponsible for the body being decapitated.Man murders t wo women, then commits suicideA pparently some type of argument resulted in a Fort Pierce man shooting his wife and her mother before killing himself at their residence at 511 Quincy Ave. The bodies of Robin Carrier, 49, and her daughter, S tephanie Carrier, 22, were found in the kitchen of the r esidence. P olice discovered the body of Christopher Covington inside the garage. A 3-year-old daughter of Mr. Covington and Ms. Carr ier was found unharmed.Employee accused of murdering attorneyAfter an attorney in St. L ucie County accused one employee of stealing from him, authorities say she and her boyfriend, who was also an employee of the attorney, conspired to murder him. Thomas J. Barnard, the boyfriend, was arrested earlier this year and accused of murdering Ashley Ronald P ollow, the attorney, on Nov. 28, 2010 and then pouring sulfuric acid on his body. An informant told police that Mr. Barnard confessed to the murder after they talked about a book written by O .J. Simpson. In the book, "I f I Did It," Mr. Simpson talked hypothetically about the murders of Nicole Br o wn Simpson, his then exwife and Ronald Goldman, her friend. He was acquitted of those murders. In an odd twist involving Mr. Pollow, it was disclosed after his murder, that law enforcement officers had saved Mr. Pollow from possibly being murdered. A man who was charged with killing his mother in Po rt S t. Lucie went to Mr. P ollow's residence and threatened to kill him, accusing him of trying to steal his girlfriend, authorities said. Lawmen, who tracked the man to Mr. Pollow's residence, then arrested him.P olice arrest gang membersFo rt Pierce Police arrested members of the 13th Street gang last February, saying they were linked to murders, drug sales and robberies. P olice said the investigation indicated members of the gang were responsible for several unsolved homicides during the past 15 y ears. The five arrested members of the gang were identified to police as being enforcers.Three arrested in connection with murderS t. Lucie County Sheriff's Office investigators arrested three young men in connection with the murder of another in Lakewood Park. In vestigators believe the shooting followed a fight that resulted from a car running over a bottle. The three suspects are believed to have been leaving the residence when their vehicle ran over the bottle. They apparently thought someone had thrown something at the vehicle. Later, the suspects are believed to have returned to the residence and started firing shots into the residence. D aniel White, a resident of the house, was shot and subsequently died. Charged with first-degree murder in connection with his death were Samuel E ugene Cleare, Greg Anthony Ferraro and Joshua TroyD avid Giovengo.T wo men charged with murder in death of Vero Beach manU ntil earlier this month, there hadn't been a murder on the beach side of Vero B each in 15 years. B ut that changed when police say two men entered the residence of Brian Simpson, 41, to burglarize it. The burglary turned into murder when Mr. Simpson arrived home and then was fatally shot. H enry Jones Jr. 23, and Da r ius Robinson, 16, were charged with first-degree murder in connection with the murder of Mr. Simpson. The two were nabbed days after the murder when they are believed to have r eturned to retrieve the murder weapon, which was stashed on the island. S ome reported the men we re behaving suspiciously, which led to police arresting them on a charge of loitering and prowling.Man shot after responding to companionship adIn one of the more unusual crime stories that made news during 2011, a Martin C ounty man was shot after he responded in Stuart to an ad for companionship. J ason Diodato and his wife, Sarah, placed the ad. I nitially, Mr. Diodato told authorities he shot the man after he attacked his wife and Mr. Diodato. But authorities later arrested Mr. D iodato, accusing him of shooting the man after he wanted the money back that he had paid to have companionship with Ms. Diodato. Ms. Diodato was subsequently charged with two counts of engaging in prostitution. F riday, December 30, 2011 A2 Sebastian River AreaHometown News DR.

P layers can pre-register for the fundraising event now and pay $15. Same-day registration will be available on a limited basis at $5 per inning as available, a press release said. The idea for the fundraiser came from a teammate, Jordan Mazzerella. The Vero B each community has jumped onboard to help out, Mr. Lawson said. This is an unbelievable community effort. I'm impressed and touched at the ov erwhelming support for the S impson family. It really tells y ou something about the good out there," he said. In addition to the player fee, funds raised at concessions and during raffles throughout the day will support the cause. S pecial guests are scheduled to visit the field during the event, including Jarrod S altalamacchia, starting catcher for the Boston Red So x and former pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ron P erranowski, and will be available to sign autographs, Mr. Lawson said. "B r ian was a great dad, and loved and supported his son in every possible way. They are a great family and we wanted to do something for them," he said. All proceeds raised for this will go to the Simpson family, every dime," Mr. Lawson said. Fr iends of the Simpson family will also hold a 5k race on Jan. 14 at South Beach Pa r k. Pre-registration is available at Runners Depot at 46 21st St., Vero Beach. F or more information,contact Mr.Lawson at (772) 6333955 or visit www.treasurecoasthurricanes.com. F undraiserF rom page A1CrimeF rom page A1 Rondell Reed L eviticus Taylor we re r equired for the company to remain qualified for the money, employment levels that Piper is currently falling short of, she said. The state is willing to r enegotiate the employment numbers in the package to reflect the economic times, she said. The company received $10.7 million in 2008, $6.7 million from the state and $4 million from the local government. Those funds we re invested in aircraft r esearch and development and capital improvements. The state has not r equested that those funds be returned, Ms. Carlon said. The economy downtown hit the aviation industry quite hard and business numbers have been down, but with the investment of their parent company, Piper officials are confident of the future, despite a large setback with the suspension of the light-jet program in October. This fall, the official owners of Piper Aircraft took ov er direct ownership of the aviation company, said Ms. Carlon. Piper was purchased in spring 2009 from American C apital by an independent sovereign wealth fund managed by Imprimis, a corporate finance and investment management firm. The fund belonged to the ministry of finance of the government of Brunei. In O ctober, Imprimis stepped aside from their "mi ddle man" position and Piper is now directly reporting to and communicating with the government of Br unei, Ms. Carlon said. Br unei is committed to investing in the products put forth by Piper with a long-term relationship mentality, she said. The cancelation of the Piper Altaire program has nothing to do with the movement to direct communication with the government of Brunei, Ms. C arlon said.

The proposed plan has all five participants with equal ownership. Mr. O'Malley will be the chairman and CEO and Mr. O'Conner will be president and COO.

S ebastian working waterfront opens Late summer saw the opening of Fisherman's Landing, one of the phases of Sebastian's working waterfront program, which included a fish market and eatery.

The kids grow so much and learn so much. For many of them, the first time they are in the boat by themselves, it's the first time in their life they have to make decisions for themselves. It matures them, teaches them to be selfr eliant and independent. It 's amazing to see the confidence in them grow," she said.

They had been told he was last seen going into a bedroom. Eventually, authorities found a hidden floor panel that led to a crawl space. The man was in the corner of the crawl space with insulation on him to conceal his location. When discovered, he said, I would have come out, but I didn't think you would find me down there. I didn't think you would look for me for a stupid out-of-county warrant." He thought wrong on both counts. And he may end up in a space that is almost as cramped as the crawl space.BlotterF rom page A1 more of the money was interest that would also be r eturned. A traffic impact fee is a fee imposed by local governments to offset the costs of new development and its impact on the road system. C ommissioner Bob Solari dissented on the vote because he believes all of the money should be refunded. C ounty staff wanted to use the whole amount to improve the Highway A1A and 17th St r eet intersection, but a county ordinance states the impact fee money must be spent within six years of being collected, or be returned to the property owners who paid it out. If unused after six years, the county then allows homeowners or those currently living on the property the impact fee paid for to apply for a r efund, for up to one year. If no one applies, the money reverts back to the county's possession. Earlier this year, it was brought to the commissioners' attention that the process to get the refunds is confusing and difficult for average homeowners to understand, and the notification process of telling the homeowners the r efund is available, isn't clear either. Therefore, several members of the community said the money should still be paid to homeowners, since they weren't aware they could get their money back. After much discussion, the commissioners voted to pay out the money owed to curr ent property owners in the area, who paid impact fees most recently, or the people who are currently living on the property, and work backward until the money runs out.

T eachers and students are under the gun to do all in their power to do well on the FCAT. Parents have witnessed their children living in fear of the coming test day. Florida taxpayers have invested millions to establish this extensive testing program, which is in constant change. No w the state board of education has unanimously approved a tougher scoring system for the FCAT. Bottom line: more students will fail! The idea of each state setting up its own testing program is WRONG! If, however, students are to be evaluated by tests, using a national testing program would be a better choice. F lorida students should be compared to students throughout the nation. Using a national testing program would save millions that are being spent every year to develop the FCAT. The money saved could be used to improve learning in the classroom. F lorida students will be seeking jobs throughout the Un ited States and therefore, need to see their performance as it compares with students throughout the country. I feel the FCAT is being used as a political tool to hurt public education. What happens in WashingtonIt 's amazing what happens in Washington. When politicians want to grab credit, they shout from the roof tops. When they want to keep things from us, there is a deathly quiet. Pr esident Obama has decided to stop searching for illegal immigrants. It was a leak that let this information be disclosed to the public. F or years he has dragged his feet concerning illegals but this is the last straw. H alting enforcement of existing statutes flies in the face of the safety and security of law-abiding Americans.Unhappy holidaysP olls show that 95 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas and 84 percent describe themselves as Christians. We were disappointed, therefore, to enter a store and be greeted with "happy holidays." That may be politically correct but we will not be returning to that store.Where are the jobs?Ev en though President Obama promised millions of new jobs when he promoted his multi-million stimulus program, very little was actually accomplished. It cost us a huge amount but we wound up with an astronomical debt. Fo r mer New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson had it right when he said, "My next door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration."K eep the creeps in jailP olice have nabbed a man for stalking. That's not such hot news, but what is astounding is that a background check reveals he had been arrested for stalking other women. He had been arrested four times in less than a month. This creep is being held for identity theft, harassment and related offenses. We expect judges to be fair but strict. W ouldn't it be nice if they would keep repeat offenders in jail?Is it the teachers?This nation is struggling with a public education system in decline and a new study by the American Enterprise I nstitute gives some reasons for our lack of success. There is a significant pay gap between overpaid teachers and lower paid, private-sector workers. It may be hard to believe but the SAT scores of college students majoring in education are far below the average of all other college students. Does this mean teachers are dumber than the others? And, if so, why are teachers getting the highest salaries? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

I can hardly believe 2012 is just a couple days away. If there's one thing I can count on this time of year, it's the inevitable calls I get from people who've been fortunate enough to get a new machine for Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever holiday they celebrate and are puzzled as to how to get all of their "stuff" off of the old machine and onto the new one. M ost people are flabbergasted when they see just how much data has accumulated on their old machine over the years (especially if the machine is six or seven years old.) These files and such tend to grow, and since we usually only access things one file at a time, it's hard to see the big picture and understand just how much data there actually is. So what do we do? What's the best method to use for this type of project? W ell, my favorite way of accomplishing the task r equires a bit of hardware called an external USB hard drive. And one of the benefits of this method is that once all of the data is moved and the new machine is up and running, the external drive can then be used as a backup drive and the computer set up to back up all the data to it every night, a task that anyone who values their data should have set up anyway. No w when I mention an external USB drive, please understand I'm not talking about one of these little 8gigabyte thumb drives that are small enough to hang on your key chain, but an actual external hard drive, with hundreds of gigabytes of storage space. A 250gigabyte external is about the smallest available these days but you can also find terabyte-sized drives (1,000 gigabytes) for under $100. T wo hundred fifty gigabytes is the smallest that I'd r ecommend for this job. OK, so now you have your old machine, your new machine and an external hard drive. What's next? W ell, plug the external drive into the old computer and create a new folder on the external drive. Call the folder "from old" or some other name that you'll be able to recognize and work with and then you are going to want to copy "everything" from the C: drive of the old computer to the "f r om old" folder on the external drive. I recommend (and use myself) a program called "ycopy" available for free from www.download.com (just search for "ycopy" on the download.com page and it will come right up). I recommend ycopy because when it runs into a file that it can't copy (which it will), it makes a note of it and keeps going. The W indows file copy system, on the other hand, will stop leaving you trying to figure out what made it and what didn't. U sually the copy process can take several hours, but that's OK, you want to get everything it can so you don't have to keep going back to the old machine looking for forgotten files. If all goes well the "from old" folder on the external drive y ou should now have a full snapshot of all your data from the old machine. (Y ou can also use this time to set up your new machine if you haven't already). Once the copy process is finished, shut down the old machine and unplug the external drive. Plug the external drive into the new machine and it should show up as a drive in the new computer. The next step is to copy the "from old" folder from the external drive to the desktop of the new machine. Again, the process may take a couple of hours, but the result is you'll have a folder on your desktopT ransferring old stuff' to new computer COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY 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.

The EF-IRC is among 800 charitable agencies representing 50 states in the U.S., across Canada and Puerto Rico and in 10 Latin American countries to be part of the program. The EF-IRC will distribute sneakers through the S neaker Exchange program that serves county public schools. The Education Foundation operates completely separate from the local school district and is funded almost entirely through private donations and grants. The foundation works closely with the local school district to prioritize program and funding needs. This unique structure allows the foundation to direct funding into classr ooms, thus avoiding r estrictions that often come with other funding sources. "I n its third year, the goal of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 K ids program remains the same: to provide footwear, a basic necessity, to children who might otherwise go without," said LuAnn V ia, CEO of Payless. The success of the program over the past three y ears, and the number of children and families we have been able to assist, continues to drive our efforts.Unemployment is still very high, affecting many families that struggle to provide their children with basic essentials," she said. This is especially challenging during the holidays, and with the Education Foundation of Indian River County's help, we hope to make a bigger impact than ever this year."

A state and local financial incentive package given to Piper with benchmarks related to employment levels is under review for possible renegotiation. N ational elephant center to build in Fellsmere D espite objections from local animal advocates, F ellsmere is to be the home of the National Elephant C enter, a habitat for elephants and a training facility for veterinarians and elephant keepers, husbandry research and elephant conservation. S ite plan permits have been approved by the city for the 225-acre site, which is currently citrus groves and farmland zoned for agriculture use. The facility had previously planned construction in S t. Lucie County, but backed away from the plan when certain restrictions on elephant training tools we re included in the site permissions. W aste-to-ethanol plant breaks ground The trash-to-fuel plant in I ndian River County broke ground in February and is estimated to create about 175 construction jobs over the next two years and about 50 full-time jobs long-term. The Indian River BioEnergy Center is designed to produce 8 million gallons of advanced bioethanol per y ear from renewable biomass including yard, wood and vegetative wastes, and generate clean renewable power for export to the local market, according to a press release. As a result of the company moving to the county and information about their progress being documented in trade magazines, other renewable energy, or "green," companies have taken notice and have expressed initial interest in bringing some of their product to Indian River County, officials said. The plant is expected to be up and running by June 2012.HeadlinesF rom page A4 Save Money,Eat OUT!Save Money,Eat OUT! www.hometownnewsol.com 50 % OFFGift Certificates50 % OFFGift Certificates

The Environmental Learning Center in Wabasso is offering several educational and entertaining boat tours of those two bodies of water in upcoming weeks. The lagoon and its tributaries have one of the most diverse environments in No r th America. Visitors on the water can see many bird species, native and invasive vegetation, as well as other water creatures such as dolphins, turtles, alligators and manatees. T wo pontoon boat excursions are offered with a tour guide; one toward the Pelican Island National W ildlife Refuge, and the other down the jungleesque St. Sebastian River. Environmental Learning C enter naturalist Sarah Rhodes-Ondi said the pontoon cruises are very laidback and relaxing and include a hands-on element that smaller children seem to enjoy. "W e pull out and talk about our bio-facts, bird skulls and bones; when we pull out the bones, the kids get very excited," Ms. Rhodes-Ondi said. On the Pelican Island excursion, visitors will be able to see about 15 species of animals, including several bird species and even dolphins, she said. "W e' re seeing a lot of dolphins at this time of the y ear, even baby dolphins, and who doesn't want to see a baby dolphin?" Ms. Rhodes-Ondi said. And we also see the white pelicans, we call them our very large snowbirds, herons, egrets and r oseate spoonbills if we're lucky," she said. T our guides will also talk about the health of the lagoon and the vegetation INDIAN RIVER C OUNCTY Gifford Y outh Activity Center, in association with The M ajestic 11 Theater, presents a special, one-time showing of four of the best movie classics of all time beginning in January through April to benefit to the center.

Palm Bay won 62-52. SEBASTIAN The S ebastian River High School Sharks suffered a hard loss of 52-62 against the Palm Bay H igh School Pirates last T uesday. The teams were evenly matched, going head to head, even from the beginning of the game. S ebastian's early points came from five 3point shots by Daniel M cDonald, Shelvick H enry and Norris Rogers. The first quarter showed spark from both teams, each finding the net after battling through the other team's defense. That's where the spark fizzled, though. Palm Ba y surged ahead of S ebastian to lead the team in points and steals. "W e came out in the second half extremely w ell," said Palm Bay C oach Joe Duffy. "We needed to keep the inside plays well and we made some mistakes in the first quarter, but in the second half we worked inside." P alm Bay knew how to r ebound and easily read the offense, which relied heavily on 3-point shots, telling the Palm Bay defense to guard the outside of the court. S ebastian had to rely more on inside shots, which produced fewer points mainly due to inaccuracy. The speed of Palm Bay, moving the ball at the net, was faster than S ebastian could keep up with, using a zone defense, instead of manto-man, which left open P alm Bay players who we re r eady to shoot. S ebastian's play after the half was slow, killing the clock in trying to break past the Palm Bay defense that would read the play and steal. The fouls Sebastian made, added to Palm B ay's total as they made five of six free throws. These fouls happened after two 3-point shots by M cDonald, closing the point margin again. "I felt good after the 10-point lead," said Pirates' Derylton Hiss. "I feel like we had it at that point. We had to calm down and when we did that we focused. We came out playing well."

MovieF rom page B1Donor provides charter gift for camp VERO BEACH Walter and Lalita Janke of Vero B each presented a $25,000 donation to The Source as a charter donation to initiate the Camp Haven Project. A giant presentation check was handed to Pat Geyer, Camp Haven's project manager. The purpose of the Camp Ha ven Project is to offer a safe, legal place to sleep, while providing casemanagement support and lifeskills education for county r esidents who intend to r ise out of homelessness. Although The Source has been working in the county for more than 16 years, offering a wide range of services to the needy and indigent, the organization has never been able to provide housing other than emergency cold night shelter for those in need. The Camp Haven Project will bring much needed change to that limitation. "F or more than a year the leadership team of The S ource has been working with committees comprised of a cross section of community leaders to build a formal plan to create Camp Haven," said S onya Morrison, executive director of The Source. "W alter and Lalita's generous donation has made it possible to take the next important steps that will allow for the acquisition and development of a site. Ca mp Haven is becoming a r eality." On Jan. 26, the next major step in developing the project will take place. The first fundraising event will take place in the Holy Cr oss Parish Hall. The event will feature an internationally known speaker. The Source is a Christian outreach and resource center for homeless individuals and families at-risk. The doors are open six days a week to provide people in need with nourishment for the body and soul. The ministry offers daily hot meals, an emergency food pantry, clothing, showers, counseling, support groups and a host of other services. It is located at 1015 Commerce Ave., in Vero Beach.

For Hometown News F riday, December 30, 2011 B4 Sebastian River AreaHometown News 760725 Clubs & classes Hello smart shoppers, what happens to the years? They seem to fly by. No matter how early I start writing to get in all I want for the holidays I never start early enough. I guess I have to jump in right after Labor Day. Who could have imagined 2012? When I was a teenager I believed by now we would be flying around in space ships and here we are still driving in cars. It's New Years Eve, too late for appropriate recipes. The lectures on eating right, getting in shape, etc., etc. will have to wait. I'm going to devote this column and the next to delectable desserts you will be making for special occasions and then get back on track to all the other stuff. R eal New York cheesecake is only the beginning. Some recipes require candied fruits; buy them now, they are never available during the year. H appy New Year! N N E E W Y W Y O O R R K K C C H H E E E E S S E E C C AKE AKE This cheesecake will be by far the best you've ever tasted. It is the true, heavy, rich, New York cheesecake that dreams are made of. Many r ecipes were tried until I finally learned that the secret to a spectacular cheesecake is not only in the ingredients but in the method of baking. This makes a large cake, you will need a 9or 10-inch spring form pan. Gr aham cracker crust Pr epare graham cracker crust according to the directions on the box, adding 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds if you like. Press into bottom of spring form pan and bake at 375-degree for 10 minutes. Let cool. While crust is baking, prepare filling. 2-1/2 pounds cream cheese (five 8-ounce packages), softened 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon each of grated lemon and orange rind 1/4-teaspoon vanilla extract 1-3/4 cups sugar 5 large eggs 2 egg yolks 1/4-cup heavy cream C ombine first 4 ingredients, beat with an electric mixer at second speed. Add sugar gradually. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating lightly after each addition. (If the speed is too high when adding the eggs, too much air gets into the batter and produces a cake of inferior consistency). Stir in cream. P our into prepared pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. (During baking place a pan of water on the bottom rack to prevent cake from cracking). R educe heat to 300 degrees; continue baking 1 to 1-1/2 hours until almost set in center. Tu rn ov en off and leave cake in for 1 hour longer. Open oven door and leave cake in 10 minutes longer. Let cool, chill, remove sides of pan and top with any glaze or fruit of your choice or serve plain with a side or two of different fruit toppings. IT IT ALIAN C ALIAN C A A S S S S A A T T A C A C AKE AKE (N (N I I B) B) This recipe is from my cousin, Ermalina. The cake is purchased from the supermarket bakery or a bakery store. It is a high cake. 1 sponge cake 1 container (2 pounds) r icotta cheese 1 cup confectioner's sugar 3 squares semi-sweet chocolate, chopped fine 5 tablespoons chopped pistachio nuts 1 cup candied fruit 3/4-tablespoon orange liquor 1/3-cup raspberry jam B eat ricotta in a large bowl until smooth. Add sugar, chocolate, nuts and candied fruit (save best pieces to decorate top of cake). C ut cake into 3 or 4 thin layers. M oisten top of each layer with liquor then spread a little jam over top and top with some ricotta mixture. Continue stacking layers, leaving top of cake plain. Chill until set, (at least 2 hours). Cover top with leftover ricotta mixture or dust with confectioner's sugar. Decorated with reserved fruit. B B ANANA ANANA S S FO FO STE STE R (N R (N I I B) B) Regular and low fat, ser Regular and low fat, ser ves ves 3 to 4 3 to 4 When my son, Bill, took a cooking course from a world famous chef he made us this decadent dessert. Now with healthy butter substitutes such as Smart Balance you can enjoy this treat without the saturated fat. 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) butter or Smart Balance 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) light brown sugar, firmly packed 1/4-teaspoon cinnamon 1/4-cup banana liqueur* 2 bananas peeled and cut in half crosswise and then lengthwise 1/2-cup slivered almonds (optional) M elt butter in skillet, add brown sugar and cook stirring constantly until sugar melts and color turns a light brown. If you choose to add the almonds, toast them in the butter-sugar mixture until they are golden. A dd the cinnamon and liqueur and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the bananas, basting and warming them in the syrup, turning once. C ool slightly and serve over v anilla ice cream. If alcohol is not an option, substitute 1/2 tsp. vanilla. This was originally a flambŽ and the alcohol was added at the end and flamed. I don't do flames too well so I skip that step. When a recipe is not in my cookbook it will have NIB (not in book) next to the title.For an autographed cookbook visit the Vero B each Book Center or www.romancingthestove.net Spectacular desserts to take you through the New Year ROMANCING THE STOVEwith the Grammy Guru ARLENE BORG 231-0707 G uided kayak tours: V isitors paddle along the I ndian River Lagoon and enjoy nature at its tropical best.

R esults included 58 adoptions to forever families in St. Lucie County, 25 in Indian River County, 24 in Martin County and 31 in O keechobee County.

"M atching the right child with the right forever family is always a joyous occasion." In addition to finding forever families for children through special needs, priv ate newborn and international adoption services, Children's Home Society also provides post-adoption therapeutic and support services to families. The Children's Home S ociety of Florida is the sixth largest of more than 1,200 private organizations currently accredited and/or in process of accreditation in North America.

I hope that all of you found 2011 to be a better y ear than 2010. I also wish that 2012 brings you health and happiness. As I look back on 2011, I r emember a year filled with highs and lows in our sport. I present to you my top seven stories in golf for 2011: No 7: Can we please get a muzzle for caddies? B etween Steve Williams and Jo LaCava, there were more stories written about caddies than half the players on tour. The very public split of W illiams and Tiger Woods became a hot story this summer. Williams joined with Adam Scott, and the duo quickly won. Tiger's struggles continued, and the media coverage became a little "National Enquirer"like. No 6: In this game, we always talk about bouncing back. No one had a bigger bounce-back in 2011 than Rory Mc Ilroy. After a Masters debacle that made Greg Norman wince, McIlroy thrashed the field and Congressional in the next major. McIlroy won by eight and broke the scoring record by four shots. No 5: There is a young woman for the world to take note of. Her name is Lexi Thompson. At 16, she put on a clinic at the Navistar Classic and became the y oungest LPGA winner ever. S he went on to add a win at the Dubai Ladies Masters to become the secondy oungest winner on the ladies European tour and will play as a member of the LPGA Tour in 2012. No. 4: If you were a betting person and took D arren Clarke to win the O pen Championship, you may have made enough to r etire. Clarke was a very long 200-1 shot with bookmakers to hoist the Claret Jug. In fact, he was 28-1 to be low Ir ishman and there were only four in the field! F or those of us who like to take life and golf a little less seriously than most, Clarke's win was fantastic. I know I had a few cigars and a stout or two in celebration. No 3: There appears to be a new dominant world No. 1, and her name is Yani T seng. She rolled through the 2011 ladies' schedule, picking up a dozen wins, including a pair of major titles. T seng led in nearly every statistical category and finished atop the money list. In her homeland of T aiwan, her appearance led to record attendance. No 2: If any group needed to get the proverbial monkey off its back, it was the European Solheim Cup T eam. F or the first time in eight y ears, Europe hosted the trophy. Doing so with a boisterous home crowd in front of Killeen Castle made it all the more special. On my list, the event was the best one of the year. S unday's last 60 minutes or so provided golf fans with the ultimate cliffhanger. M atches went back and forth with the highlight being Suzann Pettersen finishing with three straight birdies to defeat Michelle W ie to help secure the cup. No 1: On May 7, our sport lost an icon. At the young age of 54, Seve Ballesteros passed away. Se ve was to the European tour what Arnold Palmer was to the U.S. tour so many y ears ago. Y ou will be hard-pressed to find anyone who loved this game more than Seve. H is artistry and genius were untouched by any of his peers. He showed us that while you can't hit every shot perfectly, you shouldn't give up, and if you use your imagination, you can find a way to post a great score. M ost of all, Seve was one of the most genuine of gentlemen I have ever met. O ur sport was blessed to have him, and something less with his loss.
