INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A solution to help some of the homeless community in I ndian River County is coming closer to reality every day, and project leaders are looking for support. The C amp Haven project, an effort to build a safe, legal, temporary housing tent camp for homeless in the community, has the support of many community leaders, andShelter fundraiser to feature surprise speaker 760891Call:866-913-6397 Online:signup.HometownNewsOL.com Email:signup@HometownNewsOL.com*Ifyou previously signed up,dont worry you will continue to receive your paper as scheduled.SIGN-UPFORYOURFREE SUBSCRIPTION& DELIVERYTODAY SEBASTIAN RIVER AREAVo l. 9, No. 15 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Jan. 6, 2012 T ALKIN T URKEYPut that leftover turkey to good use P ageB4 INSIDE 689568 FREEVIPPasses Call: 321-868-0000Holiday Convention CenterWickham Rd @ I-95Sat., Jan. 14th9 am-5 pm Sun., Jan. 15th9 am-5 pm Viera Some criminal cases are unusual, humorous or just outright odd. And theres no shortage of them on the Treasure C oast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Convicting yourselfIt s been said that most liars eventually trip themselves up. That appears to be the case with a Port St. Lucie man. The man claimed he thought someone had burglarized his mobile home and in the darkness he fired a shot at a burglar he never saw. B ut a woman told police that the mans girlfriend had given her a key to the mobile home so she could pick up a baby jumper she let a girlfriend borrow. S he said she knocked on the door and no one answered. So she used the key and retrieved the baby jumper. As she and a friend were leaving, the man confronted her and threatened her with a gun. When confronted with what the woman and her friend said, the man told police she didnt have any r ight to be in the home. The problem with that was the police officer never mentioned the victim was a female, yet the man claimed he never saw the supposed burglar. And still having not learned his lesson, the man, as he was being arrested, maintained his Here are some golfing predictions for the upcoming year GOLF B6 2 012 IN GOLF INDEXClassifiedB5 Crossword B7 Golf B6 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 Rants & Raves A6 Star Scopes B1 V iewpoint A6 BEST OF THE BLOTTERJA Y MEISEL See B LOTTER, A3Center to accept construction, demolition debrisINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Recyclers wanting to add construction and demolition debris to their r ecycling center got the OK from Indian River C ounty commissioners in late December.

They are all part of the newest and funfilled fundraiser for Youth G uidance of Indian River C ounty. The Heli-Drop Ball Bash and Barbeque will be held on Feb. 11 from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Vero Beach S ports Village in Vero B each. In addition to donating money for the programs that help about 700 children each year, participants have the opportunity to win cash prizes, event organizers said. Golf balls purchased from the nonprofit will be numbered and dropped from a helicopter onto an open field. The ball that lands closest to a set target will win $5,000, second closest wins $2,500 and third closest wins $1,000. F ourth, fifth and sixth closest will receive $500. A dmission for one person and a golf ball is $100, while admission for two and two golf balls is $150. B arbara Schlitt Ford, executive director of Youth G uidance, said the new fundraiser was necessary this year to compensate for the loss of other funding throughout the year. S o many fundraisers are out there and we wanted to put one together that was r eally fun and unique. We hope to be able to sell 750 golf balls, Ms. Schlitt Ford said. A competitive kickball game between Indian River C ounty and Vero Beach government officials will start the event off with a bang and continue with the golf ball drop.

Improvements are planned to keep up with growing demand at the range.SEBASTIAN A new r ange and expanded hours are coming to the Indian River County shooting ra nge in Sebastian, after a r ecent vote by county commissioners. The commissioners approved a plan to send an expansion project for the increasingly popular outdoor shooting range out for bid. The capital improvements project is expected to cost about $750,000. H olden Kriss, range manager, said the project will include constructing a sporting clays shotgun course, combination skeet and trap range, new parking area, additional lighting and a new multi-purpose building for hunters education classes. The shooting range opened a little more than 10 years ago and each year the range becomes more popular. Now it has about 70,000 registered shooters in the books, and about 100 new members sign up each w eek, he said. S aturdays are the busiest business days many times, with more than 500 shooters, while Mondays, the slowest days, have about 125 shooters in a day using the facilities. Mr. Kriss said the master plan for the shooting range was always to expand it as needed by demand.Range to add skeet and trap coursesBy Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.com See R ANGE, A4 Airshow pilot to speak at breakfastSEBASTIAN Stories of war birds flying in airshows will be the talk of the town this weekend. C aptain Chris Avery of Commemorative Air Fo rc e, a nonprofit organization, will be the guest speaker at the first Saturday breakfast of 2012 at the LoPresti hangar in the S ebastian airport on Jan. 7 at 9 a.m. A full breakfast spread, including coffee, juice, eggs, bacon, fruit and more, precede Mr. Averys talk about flying in air shows in renovated military planes. A recent resident of Ve ro B each, Mr. Avery will fly in on one of the r enovated planes, a Corsair, and be available to talk about the machine and its capabilities, said D avid LoPresti, event coordinator and owner of LoPresti Aviation. An $8 donation per person for the morning event will go to Operation Hope, a local nonprofit organization close to Mr. LoPrestis heart. O peration Hope is located in Fellsmere and has helped needy families, many of them migrant families, in the area for nearly 15 years. As the need in the community has grown since the economic downturn, so have the applicants coming to Operation H ope looking for help, Mr. LoPresti said. Mr. Avery will also speak about his organization and their efforts to keep history alive for future generations. The Commemorative Air Force is a nonprofit organization and was founded to acquire, r estore and preserve, in flying condition, combat aircraft flown by U.S. military members around the world. The fleet of aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost S quadron, are restored with as many original parts as are available, and kept in flying condition so that others can enjoy the living history, said Mr. LoPresti. They are not satisfied to have them on display, they need to restore them to flying condition, he said. All are welcome at the breakfast, from children to retired pilots, Mr. LoPresti said.

now project directors are hoping for support at a grassr oots level. They will host the first Camp Haven fundraiser on Jan. 26, said Sonya Morrison, a leader in the Camp Ha ven project and executive director of The Source, a nonprofit organization reaching out to the homeless or near homeless in the community. The fundraiser will take place at the Holy Cross C atholic Church Parish Hall in Vero Beach on Jan. 26, but no time has been confirmed. Free tickets will be available, but space is limited, so reserv ations are required. A call for donations during the event will be given, said Pat Geyer, C amp Haven project manager. The identity of a special guest speaker at the event is being kept secret until the fundraiser. The secret guest is billed as an internationally known speaker who will be r ecognizable when he or she appears. E ven I dont know who it is, Ms. Geyer said with a laugh. H eavy hors doeuvre and dessert will be served during the fundraiser with bistro seating. Dress is business casual and after the event is ov er, guests will have an opportunity to take individual photos with the special speaker, Ms. Geyer said. The fundraiser is the next step in making Camp Haven a reality, she said. This is a very important juncture for us. Its the beginning of the serious work of building of Camp Haven and we want to invite people to join with us, said Ms. Geyer. W e want them to be charter adventurers with us and bring this opportunity to our homeless neighbors, because thats who they are, our neighbors who have fallen on hard times. We can give them the opportunity to get them back on their feet, she said. The Camp Haven project has been in the works for more than a year, and recently received a generous financial donation to get them started, Ms. Morrison said. P hilanthropists Walter and Lalita Janke of Vero Beach gave a charter donation of $25,000, making it possible for the project to move forward with finding a workable site to meet its vision and address some of the concerns already voiced by the community. Listening to the community is something Mrs. Morrison and other community leaders on the Camp Haven project take very seriously, Ms. Geyer said. The community had real concerns about the tempora ry residents at Camp Haven traveling back and forth to The Source for meals and showers and laundry, so the current site plans and conceptual drawings have the whole camp self-contained. C amp Havens design is to be a tent camp with showers, kitchens, restrooms, picnic tables, an office and a meeting room. A site-plan developed by architect John Dean shows a fence will be erected around the site and trees will also ring the perimeter and be planted throughout the property.

After being escorted out of the r estaurant by friends, the man returned, hit a man in the back of the head, knocked down glasses stacked on the bar and then knocked some people to the floor. And if that wasnt enough, he exited the r estaurant and fought people in the parking lot.

C ommissioner OBryan said he wasnt comfortable voting yes with the project because he was unsure of the dimensions of the other stockpiled material on the site. While some business owners had objections to the special-use permit being granted, a neighborhood that greatly objected to the project when it was proposed last spring had no objections this time around. The project, which was then known as the A1 Walee R ecycling Center, was vehemently opposed by the South C ounty Preservation Society when it was located closer to r esidential homes and included concrete crushing. R esidents had grave concerns about the air quality and ground water cleanliness should hazardous materi als be released into the air through dust or through rain washing it into the ground. The commissioners denied the request then for those reasons. In dian River County Recyclers will be allowed to collect the concrete in piles, up to 14-feet high, and will then r emove the concrete to other facilities to recycle it.

C amp Haven, but nothing is set in stone at the moment. The site would need to be between 2.5 and 5 acres to hold everything project leaders have in mind. The camp would eventually hold a maximum of 100 housing units, but to start, the camp would be open to fewer than 10 people, Ms. Geyer said. N egotiations are ongoing with a landowner, and should things move forward, the neighbors will be the first to hear about the plans for the land. Ms. Geyer said the land was located near a light industrial area, not a residential area. The homeless population in Indian River County is estimated to be about 200 people, including children, Ms. Geyer said. N ot all of those 200 people will qualify to live in Camp Ha ven, but it will meet some peoples needs. The camp will be limited to homeless marr ied or single men and women older than 18 without dependent children. A dults with dependent children already have an option at the Homeless Family Center or the Samaritan C enter, both in Vero Beach, Ms. Morrison said. C amp residents will be screened for psychological fitness, health, substance abuse and criminal history and must be Indian River C ounty residents for a minimum of 90 days prior to enrollment. Pa r ticipants must also be willing to implement self-sufficiency plans and work oneon-one with a case manager to help them get out of the downward spiral of chronic homelessness. The project timeline includes going public with a location by June, identifying potential campers from July to September and opening the camp in October or November. The project is definitely moving in a forward direction, but sometimes the progress seems painfully slow to Ms. Morrison. At The Source, she sees the need for temporary housing for the homeless in Indian River County. When people come to her looking for help, the best she can do is offer them some blankets and a tent, but she cannot tell them where to set up camp. P eople are losing jobs, homes, and we have no shelter for them, Ms. Morrison said. I t is so important to create a working solution for them so they dont have to make their way into the woods, she said. P eople come to The Source to heat meals, use the showers or laundry facilities, r equest food from the food pantry to take back to their families or even request clothing. N ot all of them are homeless yet, but many are on the brink of homelessness, Ms. M orrison said. The working poor also have their needs met by The S ource, and that goes beyond physical help. The S ource also offers several programs that are designed to meet their other needs, spiritual and psychological. Du ri ng the 2010-11 fiscal y ear, The Source helped 4,504 unduplicated clients. S ixty-nine percent of the clients were unemployed and looking for work. Of the total, 60 percent had been homeless less than three months. N ot all of those who come to The Source will be able to be helped by Camp Haven, but meeting the needs of some, and potentially helping them get back on their feet is what its all about, Ms. M orrison said.

O n those busy days, its ro ckin out here, Mr. Kriss said. I just want to build a r ange that meets the needs of the public out there, he said. The plans call for three skeet and trap ranges and 15 shooting stations for a new sporting clays shotgun course. The project is being designed in-house and the construction project will go to the lowest most responsive bidder, Mike Zito, assistant county administrator, said in a memo. The estimated cost of the project is $490,000, plus $250,000 for lighting that would enable the range to expand its hours of operation. Any additional operating costs are expected to be covered by increased re venues at the shooting r ange, Mr. Zito said. The new shooting areas will allow more events to come to the shooting r ange, including adding more shooting events to the annual police and fire games that take over the r ange once a year, Mr. Kriss said. W e ll be able to have everything here, he said. The Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission and the shooting range staff offer hunter-education courses at the range that draw people from surr ounding counties. Recently, the free classes have grown to 50 to 60 people in each class, which is far too many to fit in the current office building on campus, Mr. Kriss said. The Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission has agreed to pay for the costs of constructing a new building, which will include bathrooms, Mr. Kriss said. M any times, the people who come for class will sign up and become regular shooters at the range, spreading the word about it to even more people. I t gets really busy out here, he said.

USDA-approved feline treatments now availableTREASURE COAST A new website with a simplified process for veterinarians to order lymphocyte Tcell immunomodulator, the first USDA-approved treatment for the feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency viruses was launched r ecently. Fe LV and FIV infections are two of the most common and fatal feline diseases worldwide. Infections can cause severe immune suppression and anemia and r esult in increased risk of other infections. LT CI is the first and only approved treatment aid in the United States for cats suffering from FeLV and FIV infections. LT CI enhances the immune status of FeLV/FIVinfected cats with a corresponding, significant improvement in clinical symptoms. The therapeutic effects appear to be longlasting and without any side effects. TC yte Therapeutics website, www.TCyte.com, and new online capabilities mean that both pet owners and veterinarians can keep up-to-date on advances in the care and treatment of Fe LV and FIV, and animal clinics can directly order and manage timely shipments of LT CI, particularly in cases of critically ill patients. The site also features educational and product information on retroviral health care and plans to add a searchable database of veterinary clinics across the country that offer LTCI for cats with FeLV and/or FIV. TC yte Therapeutics is dedicated to providing safe, effective, science-based products that enhance the health of animals, allowing o wners to enjoy their longerlived and healthier animals. T erry Beardsley, founder and principal clinical r esearcher behind LTCI, while a faculty member at UCLA, demonstrated that r etrovirus infection alters the structure of the thymus gland and its ability to produce mature functional Tcells; that retrovirus infection of thymic epithelial cells caused defective T-cell development, leading to immune deficiency and/or leukemia. Dr Beardsleys studies showed that his lymphocyte T -cell immunomodulator molecule could be used as a therapy for treating immuno-compromised cats.

D id it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you will all be voted out? W ake up. They already have their own people ready to step in. I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave soldiers votes. At least some felons are legal citizens. What part of illegal is so hard to understand? Crossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and holding a license is a privilege. I know a few people who have been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of identity theft and giving out false Social Security numbers? Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools, y et illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children could not travel to an out-of-state school and expect to get in-state tuition, yet we give it to illegal aliens, not to mention every form of public aid and top priority for scholarships. There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now the M exican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland, yet we have to fight to be patriotic in our own country. Enough is enough, Id move my family to Mexico when it finally empties out, but guess what, you can never become a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected by the military.Stay warm in chilly weatherThis is a grandmother giving advice to some younger people. P lease cover up the little children. It gets chilly in the stores and we have a couple more months of cooler weather. And the older folks should keep warm, too. We dont want you getting sick and passing your germs along.Native American discrimination?We are entering 2012 and the group most discriminated against is Native Americans. Everybody is worried about where they are from and what continent they were born on, but the truth is, the most discriminated group is the group who was here before everyone. The Indian people need to get their land back and everyone else needs to stop thinking its theirs. Go back to where y ou came from. You brought poverty and crime. Give the land back to who deserves it.More ways to conserveId like to give a couple more ideas on how to conserve water. I keep water in the refrigerator so I dont have to wait for the tap water to get cold, and I turn the faucet under the sink in the bathroom to low, so I dont waste water when I brush my teeth. Thinking about the primariesThe primaries are for Americans to vote for who they think is best to serve this nation. The election will be a vote against President Obama and his job killing war on the middle class. Unjust regulation, litigation, taxation and mandated health care are big boots on the necks of small businesses and small banks, which by the way, employ the vast majority of the middle class. Only the big corporations and big banks can afford the burdensome costs that Obamination has caused. So yes, America, even though he says he is for the middle class, President Obama is destroying the middle class with his policies and it has always been the middle class that has made America prosperous and free. M any, if not all, of the worlds greatest leaders were womanizers, but they improved the lives of regular people. A mans sex life is none of our business and what was done to Her man Cain and his family is unforgivable. If Mr. Cain had been another bankrupt career politician, he would have sacr ificed his familys well-being, but he is not a career politician. I live in Florida and Mr. Cain is on the ballot here. I will be voting for the true outsider. I will be voting for a man who knows what a small business needs to grow and provide jobs for all Americans. I will be voting for the 9-9-9 plan, which will take power and control and corrupt cronyism out of W ashington. No deductions, no loopholes, no subsidies to the powerful. No special interests payoff to corrupt, entitled politicians. I will be voting for a man who knows how to solve problems. I like a president with a clear view of foreign policy. Why do we make nice and give money to our enemies? I will be voting for a man who wants to make America energy independent. I will be voting for a man who will support a fair and just immigration policy. I will be voting for a man who will neutralize class and race warfare by just being himself, a man who has lived the true American dream. I will be voting for a true leader, Herman Cain, in the primary. Americans have said we want change in Washington, a much smaller and fiscally sound government and one whose programs work properly, while providing the service they we re originally meant to do. This man can bring us together and lead us back to prosperity. Herman Cain can and will get America back on its feet. He loves America and will never hurt her. Repeal ObamacareIf we accomplish just one thing in 2012 it should be to r epeal Obamacare. When we allow political ideology to trump the health of the individual, we have made a terrible mistake. The federal government response to Hurricane Katrina compounded a natural disaster. The present recession is an example of how politicians permitted political correctness to bring down the economy of the entire nation. The post office annually loses $5 billion and has no idea of how to correct the situation. H opefully, we can make more than one improvement next y ear, but getting rid of a federal mandate controlling our health would be super.Scare tactics didnt workD espite the scare tactics of environmentalists, shale gas is shaving energy bills for an increasing number of customers. And the savings are huge. R eflecting improving technology and significant increases in supply, in some places, prices have fallen by almost half in three years. As the industry expands, expect to hear even more positive news.Justice system failureM ichael Plumadore, a 39-year-old, is another example of how the Florida system of so-called justice is a colossal mess. Living in a trailer park in Fort Wayne, Ind., Mr. Plumadore has admitted to killing and using a chain saw to cut up the r emains of a 9-year-old girl. This despicable murderer had a criminal record here for assault and trespassing. The Florida legal system allowed him to walk free with disastrous results. Its time for reform. Got something to say?

W atching for trafficCliff Partlow /staff photographerA pair of baby raccoons made their way across 77th Street after waiting for traffic to clear and the coast was clear. The pairs brothers and a parent were crying for them after they had already made it to the woods. Happy New Year. It looks like 2012 is going to be a much better year. On the business side of things, with the addition of Ver non and Chris Smith's leadership and support to our management team, H ometown News has made some great strides in several key areas. We also have some very exciting news we will be announcing soon. On the personal side of things, anything would be better than the year my wife, my family and I have gone through this past year. The year started with the passing of my father on Dec 23, a few days before 2011 began and then, of course, the terrible and tragic accident that took the life of my incredible 16-yearold son, Austin, in July. The 150 days that have followed, have been shearagony. There has not been one day that tears have not been shed by both my wife, Elaine, and myself. I know it has been tougher for her, as she was always proud of her status as a stay-athome mom. Now she stays home, but stays there alone. I, on the other hand, am able to block thesaddening thoughts through out most of the day as I focus on the challenges and successes we have experienced here at the paper. Ev eryday we spend time talking to Austin and praying to God that he is OK and doing the work that God took him to do. We talk, but you always wonder if anyone is listening. Is there really something else after you leave your physical body? Is there really another chapter? You want to believe, but you always wonder if it is r eal or justreligions way of keeping people on the straight and narrow while we are here on earth. Let me tell you of a couple of recent experiences that have taken those questions away from us and have pretty much given us hard-core proof that this life is just the beginning. The first incident happened this past November. I had been having some chest pains. Not all the time but they would come at any time, last for anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes; very uncomfortable and somewhat painful. Being the tough guy that I am, I put off going to the doctor until it was happening so often that it was becoming a problem to do all the things that I needed to do. I went in, had the first r ound of tests, and the doc said I better come back for another round as something didn't look right. The second r ound of tests led to a third visit to go in with the heartcatheter to see exactly where the blockage was and to put in a stint. I didn't think of it as any real big deal. It r uns in the family. My father had a pacemaker implanted in his late 40s. The night before I went in, I had a talk with Austin and God. I don't want to go into details, but I would imagine it was pretty standarddialogue any of us would have in a situation like this. The next morning, Elaine took me to the hospital for the procedure. The doc was ready to go and even was bragging to the other doctors that he could tell them where the blockage was to save them some time. They put me under and slid the catheter up and into the heart. Much to the amazement of all the personnel in the room, there was no blockage, it was gone. The heart was pumping as pure as a newborn baby. This gave me cause to pause. Did Austin and God fix my heart? I wanted to think so but Then it happened. The event soblatant, so obvious, in black and white, that it could not be explained away. A ustin sent me a text. That's r ight. Austin texted me. Let me back up.

Most evenings, at the end of the day, Elaine gets upset. She misses our son. S he can look up to see his bedroom door where he would come out and lean ov er the railing to ask us a question or tell her he loved her. She was upset. We talked about him for a few minutes and I tried to make her feel better. I then set my phone down on the patio table and went inside to get something out of our r oom. Inside the bedroom I continued to talk to Austin. "Son, we love you. We wish y ou were here with us. Austin, y ou have to let your mom know you are OK. Come to her, do something, please just let her know you are OK." I went back out to the patio and noticed the phone flashing that I had a message. I clicked on the message and saw that there was an attachment. I didn't recognize the number so I asked, "Elaine, do you know this number? (772) 559-2567." S he said, "That sounds so familiar" she paused, squinting her eyes as she dug deep in her brain for the o wner of that number. Then she looked at me and said, "Steve, that is Austins number." What? What? Austins number? Austins phone has not had service for five months, his phone is in a zip bag under the counter. How could that be Austin's number? There is a ton of strange thingssurroundingthis miracle. The fact that it was sent to my email but never w ent to our email server, only my phone was one of them. I could not open the attachment on my phone so I had to forward it to my email. I w ent inside to open the attachment on our computer. O pening this attachment has changed our life and our outlook on the never-ending question, is there life after death? I opened the attachment and was shocked to see that it was a picture of Austins grandpa. His grandfather passed away last Dec. 23, one y ear to the day. This picture was pulled up attached to a "photo gallery" that resides on our computer. I clicked on the arrow to see the next picture. It was Austin. Nearly every other picture on this photo gallery was a picture of A ustin, back when everything was OK. He let his mother know that he was OK, he let us know he was with grandpa. A ctually, the photo shows y ou what we first saw when the message came to the phone, 9:01p ...FW:IMGOO. Was he telling us...I am good? J ust for the record. I went to the ATT store to see how this could have possibly happen. Ac cording to them, it couldn't. There is no service to that number. No one else has that number. That number does not exist, at least not in this world.QuestionF rom page A6 Save Money, EATOUT!Save Money, EATOUT!50% OFF Gift Certificates50% OFF Gift Certificates www.hometownnewsol.com www.hometownnewsol.com

The Community Church of Vero Beach concert series will start off 2012 with an organ concert with a special twist. R enowned organist Thomas Trenney of Lincoln, Neb., has been engaged to accompany the showing of the 1925 silent film Phantom of the O pera, starring Lon Chaney as the Phantom, on Jan. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the church, said Ryan Kasten, executive director of the concert series. Mr. Trenney is an incredible improviser on the organ, and will improvise during the entire 90 minutes of the movie, Mr. Kasten said. Mr. Trenney is minister of music at First-Plymouth C ongregational Church (United Church of Christ) in Lincoln and is the artistic director of Abendmusik, the Lincoln Concert Series, and music director of a chamber choir he helped create in Bi r mingham, Mich. Last years concert series was all about showcasing the churchs new LivelyF ulcher organ, but not all the ideas were able to be used, including an idea to show a silent film accompanied by the organ, Mr. K asten said. H aving live musicians accompany a movie is not a new idea, in fact, its how silent films in many theaters around the country would be made more entertaining, he said. O ld Fox Theaters had pipe organs and thats how silent films used to be accompanied, with a live organist that would watch the movie and improvise to match what was happening on the screen. It was a seamless transition, moving from moment to moment, Mr. Kasten said. Thats how our parents and grandparents would watch movies, he said. T ypical improvisation includes such things as playing a section of How M uch is that Doggy in the W indow when the film shows a pet store. Mr. Trenney will accompany the whole film, which is about one-and-a-half hours in length, and may incorporate some recognizable sections of Andrew Ll oy d Webers Phantom of the Opera music, but will likely make it up as he goes along, Mr. Kasten said. As a listener, youll have to really pay attention to hear them, I think, he said. A large screen will be set up in the sanctuary of the church to show the film. The movie was a box office success for its time, grossing more than $2 million. T ickets are $25 for adults, $10 for students.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Since 1991, employees at Becker Holdings have opened their hearts to a very special need in the community. They have purchased holiday gifts for children in foster care and for young adults who age out of foster care at 18, who are served through the Childrens Home Society of Florida programs and services. These vulnerable young people represent a unique segment of our community that are separated from their families due to neglect, abuse and abandonment, said Jan Swink, executive director of Childrens Home Society, Treasure Coast Division. F or many, these gifts will be the only gifts that they receive this year and for some, the first gifts they will receive in several y ears. The children will know that a secret Santa somewhere in their community, cares for them. In addition to fulfilling the specific holiday wishes of 20 children, the staff also donated several additional fun gifts, which are high-demand items this season that will help to fill in the gap for many more children who will celebrate the holidays without the love and support of a family. One such example is a y oung woman who is enrolled in the organizations transitional living program. She recently moved into the Youth Tr ansition Center in Vero B each after she aged out of foster care with little more than the clothing on her back. This will be the first time in four years that she will receive holiday presents. Ca seworkers work closely with their young clients to help them assemble their wish list. The list for each individual is then distributed to donors throughout the community. Caseworkers then either deliver the gifts to foster parents or wrap them and deliver them personally to the clients. The transitional living program provides young adults, ages 18-23, with a continuum of care after they age out of the foster care system. Clients receive financial assistance, job training and mentoring to prevent homelessness and break the cycle of abuse and neglect that have been part of their lives. The Youth Transition C enter, located on the Vero B each Campus is a residential component of this program.

F irst, let's get even smarter by learning what cooking terms mean with my cook-a-cabulary, a vocabulary about cooking. Alphabetically speaking, here we go! BASTE: to moisten food while cooking with pan drippings to prevent dryness. BLANCH: to precook in steam or boiling water to r emove skin or to prepare food for canning or freezing. BLEND: to thoroughly mix ingredients with an electric mixer or a whisk until smooth. BRAISE: to cook slowly in a little liquid with the pan tightly covered. BREAD: to coat with breadcrumbs before cooking. BROIL: to cook by direct heat under the broiler of a stove. BU T TERFLY: to split foods horizontally, such as chicken breasts or meat, without separating the sections then laying flat. CARAMELIZE: to melt sugar slowly over low heat until it becomes brown in color. To caramelize onions the same process is followed using a little shortening or water until they become lightly golden and translucent. CO AT : to cover foods with crumbs, flour or batter before cooking. DREDGE: pressing food firmly into seasoned flour to coat heavily. FOLD: to add ingredients gently, such as folding in beaten egg whites by placing a spatula down into the mixture at the side of the bowl scraping along the bottom then coming up and ov er turning the bowl often until well incorporated. GLAZE: to brush a mixture over top of food to give it a shine or hard finish. KNEAD: to work dough with the heel of your hand in a pressing and folding motion. PUREE: to convert food into a liquid or paste using a blender, food processor or food mill. REDUCE: to boil a mixture to evaporate liquid so it becomes thicker. SCORE:to cut narrow criss-cross slits on each side of meat or poultry without cutting through. Any more questions? C an't you feel yourself getting smarter by the minute? Enjoy. Next week it's turkey soup.

From hosted2.ap.org D eputies:Man returned to beer after bank robbery A uthorities said a Tampa B ay area man ordered a beer at a bar, left to rob a nearby bank then came back to finish his beer. The Pasco County S heriffs Office said 52-yearold John Robin Whittle was arrested at the Hayloft Bar in Port Richey. Deputies said he robbed a WellsFar go bank branch, but not before stopping off at the H ayloft for a brew. A bartender there said Whittle ordered a beer, disappeared for about 30 minutes and then returned to his beer. D eputies said they arrested him at the bar about 10 minutes after he left the bank. From guardian.co: Chile daily must pay r eaders for exploding churros Chiles Supreme Court has ordered a daily newspaper to pay $125,000 to 13 people who suffered burns while trying out a published r ecipe for churros, a popular Latin American snack of dough fried in hot oil. The publisher of La Ter cera must pay individual damages ranging from as little as $279 to $48,000. The high courts ruling was announced seven years after the readers burned themselves. J udges determined the newspaper failed to fully test it before publication, and that if readers followed the recipe exactly, the churros had a good chance of exploding. From sfgate.com: W oman says TSA confiscated frosted cupcake A woman who flew back home from Las Vegas said an airport security officer confiscated her frosted cupcake. R ebecca Hains said the Tr ansportation Security A dministration agent at McC arran International Airport took her cupcake and told her its frosting was enough like a gel to violate T SA restrictions on allowing liquids and gels onto flights. H ains, who lives just north of Boston, said the agent didnt seem concerned that the cupcake could actually be explosive, just that it fit some bureaucratic definition about what was prohibited. The TSA was reviewing the situation, agency spokesman Nico Melendez said. Passengers are allowed to take cakes and cupcakes through checkpoints, he said. H ains surrendered the cupcake, but she said the situation highlighted a lack of common sense by the agent and the ludicrousness of TSA policies. I t s not really about the cupcake; I can get another cupcake, she said. Its about an encroachment on civil liberties. Were just building up a resistance and tolerance to all these things theyre doing in the name of security, when its really theater. It is not keeping us safe. From nbcbayarea.com: M an spends $16,000 on virtual sword Who pays for virtual tools to grow a better virtual garden or to slay a virtual dragon, you ask?

Age of Wulin, by California-based company Snail G ames, has not been r eleased on mainland China but that isnt stopping some from spending serious cash on the game. The game is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, better known as MMORPGs. A study r eleased earlier in the year v alued the virtual economy for MMORPGs at $3 billion.

Animal clinic opened Jan. 2 INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Humane Society of Ve ro Beach and Indian River County opened an animal wellness clinic on J an. 2 in its adoption and education building, located at 6230 77th St., Vero Beach. O ur new animal wellness clinic will offer affordable services to keep our communitys pets healthy, said Mari Ramirez, HSVB and IRC director of animal care. S paying and neutering, basic animal health tests for heartworm, feline leukemia and FIV, core vaccinations, pet examinations, microchips and preventative medications to combat fleas, ticks and heartworms will all be available at the clinic. A ppointments can now be made with all medical services provided by the shelters veterinary team. All pet parents, regardless of income or county, are encouraged to take advantage of the clinic, which even offers cost-saving w ellness packages for dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. C ounty residents suffering from economic hardship can also receive aid for their pets through the H umane Societys financial assistance program. O ur animal wellness clinic allows us to fulfill our mission to help every animal, said Chalmers Morse, HSVB and IRC executive director. The clinic will serve a dual purpose of keeping pets in the pink while hopefully generating funds to help the not-for-profit animal shelter care for the more than 6,000 homeless, injured, abused and abandoned animals it takes in annually. The Humane Society of Ve ro Beach and Indian River County is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping and protecting animals.

I hope the holidays left y ou with pleasant memor ies and new-found promise for 2012. F or us, a successful year in golf may mean just getting out a few more times to play. It may mean a new set of irons or a trip to a course youve longed to play. Perhaps it means a career-best round or one with an old friend or r elative. Whatever it is, I hope that you find it. F or the more famous people in golf, I have a few predictions for 2012. While I am nowhere near as famous as Nostradamus, I hope I can be just a bit more accurate with my crystal ball. W ith that, here are my top predictions for 2012. In a move to increase his slipping chances of catching Jack Nicklaus, T iger Woods petitions the powers-that-be at Augusta N ational to trim their invite list for The Masters to 18 players. S eeing as Tigers lone win in the last two years came at his own, limitedfield event, he hopes the same-size field at Augusta will better his odds of winning at put him that much closer to Jacks r ecord for major wins. Alas, despite protests by Al Sharpton and the Rev. J essie Jackson outside M agnolia Lane, the Green J ackets will politely turn down Tigers request. While Tiger will be in the hunt, it will be Jason Day who holds off Luke Donald to slip on the coat come w eeks end. To which Tiger will comment sorely, I wouldnt have even invited him. At the U.S. Open, we will witness the most tightly packed leaderboard in decades. With the Olympic Club playing to a mere 7,060 yards, nearly the entire field will find themselves in the hunt. N ot having to hit long irons and fairway woods into concrete-hard greens will help the short hitters stay in contention. I look for a short-but-accurate player to win this major. We may even see someone from the Champions Tour hoist the cup by nightfall on Fathers Day. On the flip side, I expect to see the youngest champion in history win a major on the ladies side of golf. Lexi Thompson will win a major this year and become the youngest woman to do so by nearly a year. That is if Yani Tseng cools off long enough for anyone other than her to win any tournament. At the Open Championship, Sergio Garcia will finally get that giant gorilla off his back. He will claim his first major in style beating the hottest yo ungster in golf, Rory Mc Il ro y and the man everyone thought hed be riv al to, Tiger Woods, in a playoff at Royal Lytham & S t. Annes. Fo r Garcia it will complete his career comeback that began with back-toback wins on the European Tour late this past y ear. For Tiger, it will be his second near miss of the y ear, something that will begin to eat at him as the y ear progresses. At the years final major, we will see a shootout between no less than six 20-somethings. In the end, Rickie Fowler will triumph. At his press conference after the tournament, he will show up sans hat and with a new haircut. I think we will see the demise of a fine man and golfer this year. Ernie Els putting woes will continue and he will go from the belly putter, to the long putter, to putting lefthanded, to trying a wedge and then a hybrid in an effort to drop a putt. E ls slipped from 42nd in putting in 2010 to 180th in 2011. Its difficult to stay competitive and even harder to stay positive when you cannot make a 3-foot putt. The final nail in the coffin for Els, and the beginning of a slide for others, will come when the Ro yal & Ancient actually bans the long putter. There is currently a rule limiting how short a putter may be. While its difficult to limit the overall length of a specific club, I expect to see the R&A make the swinging of a club by anchoring it to any spot on the body, other than the hands or the wrists, against the rules. With its usual aplomb, the USGA will wait another two years before implementing the same rule. F inally, we will see a mainstay of the U.S. Ryder C up team not make the squad. Sadly, Phil Mickelson, who has seen more than his fair share of mountains to climb, will slide out of the players qualifying for the team on points. Its unlikely that captain Davis Love III, will pick him with so many hot, young players to choose from.

IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG 2 New year a chance to try something new It s a new year and many of us have made resolutions. Some of us have already broken them. We may want to exercise more, eat better or lose weight. Pe rh aps we want to reconnect with friends and family. Some of us may want to try something new. Thats our focus this month. In this issue of Forever Young, youll meet people who tried something they hadnt done before. In some cases it was exercising or taking up a sport. In other cases, it was a change in career or a new pursuit after retirement. Some of the people had physical limitations. Others had survived cancer and rethought their priorities. The common thread for all the stories is that it is never too late to try something new. It doesnt have to be a life-changing move. Sometimes its as simple as taking up bridge or ballroom dancing. All of the people interviewed for these pages have taken that first step, the hardest one of all. Most were apprehensive. M any were afraid theyd make fools of themselves.

INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG 4 EXERCISE is ageless VERO BEACH If you think youre too old to exercise, or you have too many health problems, y ou should meet Mary Chames. At 88, Ms. Chames had fallen and hurt her back. She had also had knee replacement surgery. T he best thing to do was small exercises, she said. After the back brace came off, I kept going with them so that I could walk better and be more agile. Now almost 90, she goes to the Vero Beach A thletic Club two or three times a week to do exercise to improve her balance, walk better and prevent falls. I t s helped me a great deal, she said. Im not like I was when I was 60 or 70, but Im so much better than I was. Even if you do a few things, y ou make progress. The old bones want to keep moving if we give them a chance. We have limitations we must accept and do the best with what we have. B ob and Carole Del Vecchio own the Vero B each Athletic Club. Mr. Del Vecchio said that he often asks new clients when the best time to start exercising would be. If theyre 70, theyre likely to say that its between 30-40 years of age. I come back with, the best time to start is today, Mr. Del Vecchio said. Its never too late. Y our body will overcome and adapt. Research shows even people in wheelchairs could use walkers or they went from canes to walking. The most important element in an exercise program is that first step, walking though the door. Y ou can lead a horse to water, but you cant make them drink, Mr. Del Vecchio said. They have to have the gumption, willpower and indomitable spirit to walk in the door. Anything worthwhile has hard work behind it, but you will succeed. A lot of older people have had their lives defined by their medical problems and limitations. Life becomes medicalized, Mr. Del Vecchio said. Theres no control. Through exercise and activity, people live longer and are much happiBy Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See EXERCISE, Page 16

7January 2012FOREVER YOU NG INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Bridge: Keeping your mind exercised VERO BEACH Research has shown that keeping the brain active by doing puzzles or crosswords or playing games such as bridge may stave off age-related dementia. Now scientists think that card games like bridge may be the best plan for protecting the brain. It appears that the interaction with other people is as important as the intellectual challenge. An article by Benedict Carey in the M ay 22, 2009, issue of The New York T imes, entitled At the Bridge Table, Clues to a Lucid Old Age, cited r esearch by Dr. Claudia Kawas, a neur ologist at the University of California, Ir vine. W e think, for example, that its very important to use your brain, to keep challenging your mind, but all mental activities may not be equal. Were seeing some evidence that a social component may be crucial. Those findings are welcome news to the many bridge players in the area. David Lambie of Vero Beach, a college student, teaches bridge to classes filled with seniors. S ome learned to play in college but havent played in years, he said. S ome say they dont know a thing but want to play with friends. Mr. Lambie teaches bridge at Barefoot Bay. His classes are open to the public. He suggests to students that they start with his Fundamentals course. The way I designed it, if you know nothing about cards, by the end of the eight-session class, youll know some of the fundamentals. I v e found that even for students who took lessons in college, things have changed in 30 years. There are new ideas on bidding. Taking classes periodically is an important part of learning. Theres always new material. F or those who are worried bridge is too complicated, Mr. Lambie offered r eassurance. I f you can do basic addition and subtraction and like socializing, theres no reason why you cant like it, he said. It takes a little bit of work, but once you learn it, you can go to a bridge club or social bridge setting. Y ou dont have to have a regular partner. I cant extol the benefits enough. It s a mental activity that reinforces positive relationships. Joy ce Pacific of Barefoot Bay began studying bridge with Mr. Lambie last y ear. Fr iends tried to teach me, but they confused me, she said. Im determined with David. I love it. It challenges your brain. Its a very serious game, not like Bingo. Y ou have to remember what youre supposed to know. Im almost 80. I cant exercise a lot and I thought it was a good way to keep my brain active. I know its difficult, but I do like it and I want to learn more. You never stop learning. D avid Lambies next series of bridge classes begin in January at Barefoot Ba y s Community Center.Barefoot Bay is located in southern Brevard County. The classes are open to the public. F or information about class schedules and cost,visit the website www.directordavidlambie.wordpress.com or call (772) 231-5663.Mr. L ambie is available to teach classes in other communities. He also has a free monthly online newsletter.Sign up at his website. By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor F itness for building muscle and confidence VERO BEACH Marcia Nevins, 74, has peripheral neuropathy and has had two operations on herniated discs. She used a cane or a walker to get around. I just felt the next stage was a wheelchair and I didnt like the idea of that, she said. S he decided to enroll at Longevity for Women in Vero Beach because Ginger Stewart, the general manager, had experience working with neuropathy patients. I just wanted to do the treadmill, Ms. Nevins said. I just wanted to get walking. She suggested upper body exercises. Theyre very simple, with 2 pound weights. On the treadmill, I started at 1/8 of a mile. After seven weeks, Im up to half a mile in 20 minutes. Im very pleased. I feel much better and Im not as dependent on my cane. G inger Stewart, general manager at Longevity for Women, sees this all the time. People come in who are discouraged and depressed at the limitations placed on them by their bodies. Theyre building confidence, she said. They start volunteering again. They thought they would have to live this way for the rest of their lives. W e had a lady a while back who used a cane. It took 15 minutes to get through the front door. Her voice was hoarse and she was hardly able to talk. She said, I have not talked to a living human in five w eeks. The woman had withdrawn because she was depressed about her life. S he saw an ad and came in, Ms. Stewart said. She said, I just came in to throw money away. I know its not for me. Within five-six w eeks, she was flying in, still dragging her leg, but without her cane. S he noted that exercise has many benefits, regardless of age. There is increased energy, stamina, a reduced risk of falling, better balance, cardiovascular fitness, osteoporosis prevention and increased muscle strength. Above all is the improvement in attitude. Richard Barattini, the centers executive director said that its important to be realistic. Y ou cant make changes by snapping your fingers, he said. It goes little by little. The name of the game is not how many pounds you lift today, but coming in over a long period of time and making a lifestyle change. Mr. Barratini said that progress is measure in many ways. Changes in mobility, in range of motion and in stamina may be measured in small steps. Changes in attitude and confidence are even harder to quantify. I saw a lady the other day who joined a month ago. She came in with her hair not cared for and no make-up. After two-three visits, shes putting on make-up and fixing her hair. If thats not results, what it? Ms. Stewart echoed the thought. Y oure never too old and its never too late. You have to take that step.

S ince I was a kid, I have been a serious fisherman and I have pursued that hobby all across the United States. I have fly fished for brook trout in the rushing streams of the high Rocky Mountains, trolled for salmon and walleye in the Great Lakes, trapped crawfish in the swamps of Louisiana, and caught horned pout in Maine. I have landed bonito in Southern California and scooped up grunion from the beach. I have caught cutthroat trout in Idaho and large mouth bass from the Santee Cooper in South Carolina. With a fly rod I caught small mouth, northern and white bass in the Wolf River west of Green Bay, W isconsin. Of course, I have caught most of the fish that swim in Florida waters both fresh and salt. I have given fishing my all. F or most of my life I have also been a car guy and have restored many classic autos. I did a 1959 Chevy pick-up, a very rare 1960 F acel Vega, one of only 200 handmade in Paris, France. I had a 1970 Me r cedes, a 1977 Lincoln Versailles, a Chrysler sedan, a 1966 P lymouth Valiant, and a Bricklin gull wing sports car. I did a fabulous 1949 Chrysler Woody Convertible and many more. I loved each and every one of them. I am a lifelong sports fan and chased most of the balls when I was a young man. It was my honor to see Roberto Clemente play in Pittsburghs venerable Forbes F ield and I saw Sandy Koufax pitch in Chavez Ravine. I watched Stan M usial play a game against Willie M ays in the original Bush Stadium in St. Louis. As a young man I saw a game between the old Washington Senators and the Philadelphia At hletics in D.C.

9January 2012FOREVER YOU NG INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWS An easy way to stay informed on the election On Jan. 31, Florida Republican voters go to the polls to say wholl get Floridas delegates to the GOP national convention in Tampa this August. While Florida Democrats wont vote in a presidential primary most observers say its virtually certain that the Democratic national convention will nominate President Obama F loridas Jan. 31 primary election could play a major role in the outcome of the r ace for the Republican nomination. To help older Floridians sort out where candidates stand on issues important to voters 50+, AARP Florida is helping voters to track the candidates positions especially on critical pocketbook issues such as protecting and strengthening Social Security and M edicare. AARP is nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates for any election or contribute money to any politicalaction committee or campaign. AARP does work to educate its 37 million members, including 2.7 million members in Florida, on key issues. In O ctober, an AARP Florida poll showed a significant and troubling gap between where some Republican candidates stood on cuts to Social S ecurity and Medicare and where F lorida Republican voters stood. The poll showed that by huge margins at least two to one GOP voters stoutly opposed cuts to future r ecipients Social Security benefits, or cuts to Medicare benefits, as a way to r educe the federal deficit. F or example, Florida Republicans who identified themselves as Tea Party supporters, and who also said they had attended Tea Party events, opposed cuts to Social Security for future beneficiaries as a way to reduce the deficit by a margin of 56.1 to 37.9 percent. The same voters opposed cuts to Medicare as a way to reduce the deficit by 62.1 to 31.8 percent, almost exactly two to one. In other groups of Florida Republican voters, the margins were far more lopsided. Hispanic Republicans opposed Social Security cuts as a deficit-reduction measure by 84.5 percent to 13.5 percent, a crushing sixto-one margin. While Florida Republicans overall opposed cuts to Medicare as a means of reducing the deficit by 70.4 percent to 22.2 percent, Hispanic R epublicans opposed Medicare cuts 77 percent to 16.5 percent, more than a four-to-one margin. Y et much of the political buzz about the GOP primary has centered on ideas for cutting Social Security benefits for future retirees, or reductions to M edicare reimbursements, as a way of lowering the federal governments operating deficit. AARP believes this poll shows a startling disconnect between what W ashington and the candidates are thinking about Social Security and M edicare, and what Florida GOP voters want them to do. The poll showed that those Florida R epublicans likely to vote in the Jan. 31 primary are overwhelmingly 50+, for whom Social Security and Medicare are very important issues. AARP Florida believes it can play an important role by helping voters learn where candidates stand on these critical issues. To make sure voters are getting accurate information, we have posted unedited video voters guides in which several candidates explain their views on Social Security and Medicare in their own words. The voters guide can be found at www.aarp.org/youearnedit If yo u re registered as a Democrat or independent, stay tuned for AARPs voter-education efforts later in the year. O ur association will focus on helping voters get access to important information on state and Congressional candidates and issues in preparation for primary elections in August and general elections in November.

In 1998 the structure became a N ational Historic Landmark. The P once Inlet Lighthouse Preservation Association maintains and runs the structure. Those who visit will see on of the largest collections of lighthouse optics in the world, director of operations Mike Bennett said. The Lighthouse also gives visitors a sense and feel of what life was like at the turn of the century for Floridas coastal residents. F or more information,visit www.livinglegendsofautoracing.com.

13January 2012FOREVER YOU NG Document your sources in genealogy Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have y ou noted where you obtained this information? Will you remember where y ou found it, next month, next year, or 10 y ears from now? The answer is a guaranteed No. So, starting today, document everything before you get too far down the road and have to backtrack. This will help your research tremendously in the future, when you need to find that elusive bit of information that will help you climb the inevitable brick wall. It also gives other researchers confidence in your work. When I first started researching, I excitedly took down every fact I found. Of course it was correct, it was right there on the official document, in the book at the library, or Grandmother told me. Fortunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can remember where the tombstone is, but I didnt actually document it in my database. There are still many facts in my database that are not documented properly. It is still one of my major downfalls, getting caught up in the story and not wanting to take the time to document. S ending your genealogy out into the world without citing your sources is sending it out with no validation. Almost invariably, when I find some exciting new fact about my ancestor, there is no source given. This leaves me totally in the dark. E xactly where did this date, spouse name, etc., come from? Someone must have known, but chances are, the person that put the information on the Internet, or in the book, just copied it from someone else, who also copied it from someone. As far as I know, it could have, and might as well be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with the exact location from where it was obtained. A source, regardless of how informal, is where we obtained the information. It may have come from a probate record, family Bible, census record, or from Grandma Bessy. Everything needed for another researcher to find this source, should be included. This leaves a trail for y ou, as well as others who want to follow y our line of descent. Tr aditionally, sources have been classified as primary and secondary. A primary record is one created close to the event, such a birth or marriage record or by a person reasonably knowledgeable about the event. A secondary record is one that was created sometime later. The secondary source is not viewed as being as accurate as a primary source, since time and distance often dims memories and distorts the facts. So a secondary source should always be backed up with as many other sources as possible, including a primary one when available. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being correct. Death certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. T ombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A relative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name. This makes a strong case for thoroughly researching each person and finding as many sources as you can. The more sources you find, the closer you can come to deciding which is the correct data. W ith the tremendous amount of information being put on the web, you must always remember that it is all suspect until you have personally verified that it is correct. Never download someone elses information into your work until you document it and are satisfied that the preponderance of evidence shows that this data belongs to y our family. Trying to sort out unrelated individuals, much less whole family groups, from your database, is a nightmare.

A New Year! A new calendar! All the doctors appointments have been crossed off birthdays celebrated holidays enjoyed Time to do it all ov er again! There was a time in my life that I thought New Years Eve was the mother of all adult parties. Celebrating with friends, wearing spandex and heels and feeling like I had a terrible flu the next day were the norm. U ntil motherhood descended. When my fledglings were still in the nest and snuggled in by 9 p.m. I was the Waker. I woke them all to come sit with me and watch the ball drop, and was usually rewarded with daughter No. 1 moaning, Thats nice M om can we go back to bed now? And mumbled grumblings from daughters No. 2 through four concerning thea sanity of waking someone up in the middle of the night to watch TV when the waker informs them daily that they watch too much TV. As they will years and life events fly past in a blur of school plays, r eport cards, (theirs) job transfers and the gaining of a few pounds (Mine). Now Im the Wakee. Mom! You said y ou would come and celebrate with us! The ball is going to drop in five minutes and we are making raisin toast, do you want yours with cream cheese? When I asked this enthusiastic 12-year-old why we were celebrating with raisin toast, the answer made perfect sense. Partiers sip champagne to celebrate, champagne is made from grapes, and grapes turn into raisins! This champagne cousin makes a wonderful toast, literally. Especially if enjoyed snuggled on the couch with loved ones and hot tea served in the good china. Mo re life changing events for my offspring graduations, coming of age, starting college, two of them living on their own more poundage added to my hips and I have become both the Waker and the W akee. This provided me with the opportunity to to question the mental stability of the Wakers. I answered the giggly midnight call with, What the heck are you doing out on the worst night of the year?! Yo u re not drinking, are you? Do you r eally think calling the one person who worries about you with each breath is the most mentally balanced thing to do? Yes, I love you, and I thank you from the bottom my heart for thinking about your mother and r aisin bread when you could be kissing someone. Can I go back to bed now? The tears that flowed when the doorbell rang and my offspring walked in toting loaves of raisin bread and cream cheese while I was still holding the phone dried quickly as we woke their siblings to join us. Only now it was child No. 5 who was declaring the loss of mental cognizance by the three of us. To this day he still allows he had to eat six pieces of toast because he feared for his health should he refuse. The rest of us allow we feared for his health should he eat the seventh. A word to the wise: Chasing-a-caffeine-and-raisinfilled 6-year-old around the couch to r ip a smashed piece of toast from his hand is best not done in a nylon gown and bunny slippers, while laughing hysterically.

Women then didnt do strength training, but there are benefits for both men and women. Strong muscles keep joints separated. When you have bone on bone on the knees, its because the muscles are weak. A misconception people often have is that exercise is for people who are athletic. P eople should think of exercise as making the activities of daily life easier, Ms. Del Vecchio said. It helps to get in and out of a chair, on and off the toilet, reach up to cabinets and carry groceries. St re ngth and flexibility keep muscles pliable so that they dont become stiff and you lose range of motion. Simply, your body needs to stretch and move.

Once I even saw the legendary El Cordobes fight a bull in Ba r celona Spain. I am a pretty fair amateur historian and some consider me to be an authority on beach racing. From time to time I am called on to speak publicly about some of my hobbies. S omehow, with all of that going on, I found time to run a construction business for 26 years and help Lana, my wife of nearly 38 years, raise two great children. WO W! I have really been busy. As most of you have guessed, these days my most rewarding hobby is what I am doing right now writing. S ince I was in fifth grade I have been told that I have the ability to spin a pretty good tale on paper. I used that talent to cruise through the English classes while in school, so if some of y ou detect flaws in my composition it is a result of my youthful laziness. In my life I have emptied hundreds of ballpoints and covered reams of paper with words that no one will ever read. Thats OK, for I do it mostly for myself. S ince I have been writing for this newspaper I have met many of you who have been kind enough to tell me that you enjoy what I do. That, to me, is priceless. Hopefully, some of y ou have discovered through my simple style just how easy it is to write and will consider trying it for yourself. Writing is good for your psyche. It is a release that can cleanse the mind and perhaps even the soul. Ev eryone has a story to tell. Maybe it is your own life story or maybe the accomplishments of your grandchildren. Your subject need not be interesting to the masses. Do it for y ourself. I am certain many of you have thought about it. You may have even said to yourself, I bet I could do what that Dan guy does.

INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG 18 me one of the more memorable ones. Due to certain changes involving Power Surges, sleepless nights and Empty Nest Syndrome I w ent full circle and am once again the Waker and once again the subject of my mental stability came up in the conversation. B eginning with daughter No. 1 and working my way down I struck gold on my third telephone try. My H appy New Year!! was met with, Mom! I totally understand y ou are having problems sleeping and your thermostat is on the fritz, but menopause is not supposed to make me miserable for 10 more y ears! And then its supposed to be mine! I not so gently reminded her that when she was under the influence of morphine following surgery, she had called me 14 times in six hours complaining the fish in the bathr oom were making to much noise. S ipping tea and chewing toast is almost as good via the modern technology of cell phones as it is in person. I cant think of another person for whom the bumper sticker P lease be patient Gods not done with me yet is more appropriate than me, I have been perpetually unfinished for many decades. Ev olving and revolving around those that I love and whatever the world hands me is a full-time job for me and Im thoroughly enjoying every moment. Sometimes it is to the consternation of those who take life more seriously than I do. This year Im resolving to not r esolve. I am replacing resolves with wishes. I wish my bathroom scale would take a backward slide. I wish my tongue would freeze in place at certain times. I wish I could remember to buy books on disks so I could read them on the way to work B ut most of all I wish you raisin toast, hot tea and hearts full of enough love to enjoy them.Y earFrom page 14 Elks Lodge-DOEs Present a H awaiian Luau: at 5 p.m. Saturday, J an. 14 at the Sebastian Elks Lodge 2714, 731 S.

De adline for the February publication is Jan.15.CalendarFrom page 18 T ake a close look at my columns. N othing complicated, right? I try to write as though I am talking with a friend. I work hard to keep out pretentious words that I would not use in everyday conversation. It seems to work. You need not have a huge vocabulary and if you do you certainly shouldnt hit people over the head with it. Words that are inserted to show off your language skills tend to remind your reader that someone is writing at them; not talking to them. As I said before, I write for myself. I am very fortunate to have my musings published, but if that ended tomorrow I would continue to write. I just like doing it. I encourage you to find something y ou enjoy doing and do the hell out of it. Who knows you may even find someone who will allow you to do it professionally. Thank you, Hometown News.

And theres no shortage of them on the Treasure C oast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Convicting yourselfIt s been said that most liars eventually trip themselves up. That appears to be the case with a Port St. Lucie man. The man claimed he thought someone had burglarized his mobile home and in the darkness he fired a shot at a burglar he never saw. B ut a woman told police that the mans girlfriend had given her a key to the mobile home so she could pick up a baby jumper she let a girlfriend borrow. S he said she knocked on the door and no one answered. So she used the key and retrieved the baby jumper. As she and a friend were leaving, the man confronted her and threatened her with a gun. When confronted with what the woman and her friend said, the man told police she didnt have any r ight to be in the home. The problem with that was the police officer never mentioned the victim was a female, yet the man claimed he never saw the supposed burglar. And still having not learned his lesson, the man, as he was being arrested, maintained his Here are some golfing predictions for the upcoming year GOLF B6 2 012 IN GOLF INDEXClassifiedB5 Crossword B7 Golf B6 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 Rants & Raves A6 Star Scopes B1 Viewpoint A6 BEST OF THE BLOTTERJAY MEISEL See B LOTTER, A3Center to accept construction, demolition debrisINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Recyclers wanting to add construction and demolition debris to their r ecycling center got the OK from Indian River C ounty commissioners in late December.

They are all part of the newest and funfilled fundraiser for Youth G uidance of Indian River C ounty. The Heli-Drop Ball Bash and Barbeque will be held on Feb. 11 from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Vero Beach S ports Village in Vero B each. In addition to donating money for the programs that help about 700 children each year, participants have the opportunity to win cash prizes, event organizers said. Golf balls purchased from the nonprofit will be numbered and dropped from a helicopter onto an open field. The ball that lands closest to a set target will win $5,000, second closest wins $2,500 and third closest wins $1,000. F ourth, fifth and sixth closest will receive $500. A dmission for one person and a golf ball is $100, while admission for two and two golf balls is $150. B arbara Schlitt Ford, executive director of Youth G uidance, said the new fundraiser was necessary this year to compensate for the loss of other funding throughout the year. S o many fundraisers are out there and we wanted to put one together that was r eally fun and unique. We hope to be able to sell 750 golf balls, Ms. Schlitt Ford said. A competitive kickball game between Indian River C ounty and Vero Beach government officials will start the event off with a bang and continue with the golf ball drop.

Improvements are planned to keep up with growing demand at the range.SEBASTIAN A new r ange and expanded hours are coming to the Indian River County shooting ra nge in Sebastian, after a r ecent vote by county commissioners. The commissioners approved a plan to send an expansion project for the increasingly popular outdoor shooting range out for bid. The capital improvements project is expected to cost about $750,000. H olden Kriss, range manager, said the project will include constructing a sporting clays shotgun course, combination skeet and trap range, new parking area, additional lighting and a new multi-purpose building for hunters education classes. The shooting range opened a little more than 10 years ago and each year the range becomes more popular. Now it has about 70,000 registered shooters in the books, and about 100 new members sign up each w eek, he said. S aturdays are the busiest business days many times, with more than 500 shooters, while Mondays, the slowest days, have about 125 shooters in a day using the facilities. Mr. Kriss said the master plan for the shooting range was always to expand it as needed by demand.Range to add skeet and trap coursesBy Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.com See R ANGE, A4 Airshow pilot to speak at breakfastSEBASTIAN Stories of war birds flying in airshows will be the talk of the town this weekend. C aptain Chris Avery of Commemorative Air Fo rce, a nonprofit organization, will be the guest speaker at the first Saturday breakfast of 2012 at the LoPresti hangar in the S ebastian airport on Jan. 7 at 9 a.m. A full breakfast spread, including coffee, juice, eggs, bacon, fruit and more, precede Mr. Averys talk about flying in air shows in renovated military planes. A recent resident of Ve ro B each, Mr. Avery will fly in on one of the r enovated planes, a Corsair, and be available to talk about the machine and its capabilities, said D avid LoPresti, event coordinator and owner of LoPresti Aviation. An $8 donation per person for the morning event will go to Operation Hope, a local nonprofit organization close to Mr. LoPrestis heart. O peration Hope is located in Fellsmere and has helped needy families, many of them migrant families, in the area for nearly 15 years. As the need in the community has grown since the economic downturn, so have the applicants coming to Operation H ope looking for help, Mr. LoPresti said. Mr. Avery will also speak about his organization and their efforts to keep history alive for future generations. The Commemorative Air Force is a nonprofit organization and was founded to acquire, r estore and preserve, in flying condition, combat aircraft flown by U.S. military members around the world. The fleet of aircraft, known as the CAF Ghost S quadron, are restored with as many original parts as are available, and kept in flying condition so that others can enjoy the living history, said Mr. LoPresti. They are not satisfied to have them on display, they need to restore them to flying condition, he said. All are welcome at the breakfast, from children to retired pilots, Mr. LoPresti said.

now project directors are hoping for support at a grassr oots level. They will host the first Camp Haven fundraiser on Jan. 26, said Sonya Morrison, a leader in the Camp Ha ven project and executive director of The Source, a nonprofit organization reaching out to the homeless or near homeless in the community. The fundraiser will take place at the Holy Cross C atholic Church Parish Hall in Vero Beach on Jan. 26, but no time has been confirmed. Free tickets will be available, but space is limited, so reserv ations are required. A call for donations during the event will be given, said Pat Geyer, C amp Haven project manager. The identity of a special guest speaker at the event is being kept secret until the fundraiser. The secret guest is billed as an internationally known speaker who will be r ecognizable when he or she appears. E ven I dont know who it is, Ms. Geyer said with a laugh. H eavy hors doeuvre and dessert will be served during the fundraiser with bistro seating. Dress is business casual and after the event is ov er, guests will have an opportunity to take individual photos with the special speaker, Ms. Geyer said. The fundraiser is the next step in making Camp Haven a reality, she said. This is a very important juncture for us. Its the beginning of the serious work of building of Camp Haven and we want to invite people to join with us, said Ms. Geyer. W e want them to be charter adventurers with us and bring this opportunity to our homeless neighbors, because thats who they are, our neighbors who have fallen on hard times. We can give them the opportunity to get them back on their feet, she said. The Camp Haven project has been in the works for more than a year, and recently received a generous financial donation to get them started, Ms. Morrison said. P hilanthropists Walter and Lalita Janke of Vero Beach gave a charter donation of $25,000, making it possible for the project to move forward with finding a workable site to meet its vision and address some of the concerns already voiced by the community. Listening to the community is something Mrs. Morrison and other community leaders on the Camp Haven project take very seriously, Ms. Geyer said. The community had real concerns about the tempora ry residents at Camp Haven traveling back and forth to The Source for meals and showers and laundry, so the current site plans and conceptual drawings have the whole camp self-contained. C amp Havens design is to be a tent camp with showers, kitchens, restrooms, picnic tables, an office and a meeting room. A site-plan developed by architect John Dean shows a fence will be erected around the site and trees will also ring the perimeter and be planted throughout the property.

Per haps a Martin C ounty man wishes he would have done that. I nstead, the man, who was enraged over not getting a sauce he wanted, started throwing money around. After being escorted out of the r estaurant by friends, the man returned, hit a man in the back of the head, knocked down glasses stacked on the bar and then knocked some people to the floor. And if that wasnt enough, he exited the r estaurant and fought people in the parking lot.

C ommissioner OBryan said he wasnt comfortable voting yes with the project because he was unsure of the dimensions of the other stockpiled material on the site. While some business owners had objections to the special-use permit being granted, a neighborhood that greatly objected to the project when it was proposed last spring had no objections this time around. The project, which was then known as the A1 Walee R ecycling Center, was vehemently opposed by the South C ounty Preservation Society when it was located closer to r esidential homes and included concrete crushing. R esidents had grave concerns about the air quality and ground water cleanliness should hazardous materi als be released into the air through dust or through rain washing it into the ground. The commissioners denied the request then for those reasons. In dian River County Recyclers will be allowed to collect the concrete in piles, up to 14-feet high, and will then r emove the concrete to other facilities to recycle it.

C amp Haven, but nothing is set in stone at the moment. The site would need to be between 2.5 and 5 acres to hold everything project leaders have in mind. The camp would eventually hold a maximum of 100 housing units, but to start, the camp would be open to fewer than 10 people, Ms. Geyer said. N egotiations are ongoing with a landowner, and should things move forward, the neighbors will be the first to hear about the plans for the land. Ms. Geyer said the land was located near a light industrial area, not a residential area. The homeless population in Indian River County is estimated to be about 200 people, including children, Ms. Geyer said. N ot all of those 200 people will qualify to live in Camp Ha ven, but it will meet some peoples needs. The camp will be limited to homeless marr ied or single men and women older than 18 without dependent children. A dults with dependent children already have an option at the Homeless Family Center or the Samaritan C enter, both in Vero Beach, Ms. Morrison said. C amp residents will be screened for psychological fitness, health, substance abuse and criminal history and must be Indian River C ounty residents for a minimum of 90 days prior to enrollment. Pa r ticipants must also be willing to implement self-sufficiency plans and work oneon-one with a case manager to help them get out of the downward spiral of chronic homelessness. The project timeline includes going public with a location by June, identifying potential campers from July to September and opening the camp in October or November. The project is definitely moving in a forward direction, but sometimes the progress seems painfully slow to Ms. Morrison. At The Source, she sees the need for temporary housing for the homeless in Indian River County. When people come to her looking for help, the best she can do is offer them some blankets and a tent, but she cannot tell them where to set up camp. P eople are losing jobs, homes, and we have no shelter for them, Ms. Morrison said. I t is so important to create a working solution for them so they dont have to make their way into the woods, she said. P eople come to The Source to heat meals, use the showers or laundry facilities, r equest food from the food pantry to take back to their families or even request clothing. N ot all of them are homeless yet, but many are on the brink of homelessness, Ms. M orrison said. The working poor also have their needs met by The S ource, and that goes beyond physical help. The S ource also offers several programs that are designed to meet their other needs, spiritual and psychological. Du ri ng the 2010-11 fiscal y ear, The Source helped 4,504 unduplicated clients. S ixty-nine percent of the clients were unemployed and looking for work. Of the total, 60 percent had been homeless less than three months. N ot all of those who come to The Source will be able to be helped by Camp Haven, but meeting the needs of some, and potentially helping them get back on their feet is what its all about, Ms. M orrison said.

O n those busy days, its ro ckin out here, Mr. Kriss said. I just want to build a r ange that meets the needs of the public out there, he said. The plans call for three skeet and trap ranges and 15 shooting stations for a new sporting clays shotgun course. The project is being designed in-house and the construction project will go to the lowest most responsive bidder, Mike Zito, assistant county administrator, said in a memo. The estimated cost of the project is $490,000, plus $250,000 for lighting that would enable the range to expand its hours of operation. Any additional operating costs are expected to be covered by increased re venues at the shooting r ange, Mr. Zito said. The new shooting areas will allow more events to come to the shooting r ange, including adding more shooting events to the annual police and fire games that take over the r ange once a year, Mr. Kriss said. W e ll be able to have everything here, he said. The Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission and the shooting range staff offer hunter-education courses at the range that draw people from surr ounding counties. Recently, the free classes have grown to 50 to 60 people in each class, which is far too many to fit in the current office building on campus, Mr. Kriss said.

USDA-approved feline treatments now availableTREASURE COAST A new website with a simplified process for veterinarians to order lymphocyte Tcell immunomodulator, the first USDA-approved treatment for the feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency viruses was launched r ecently. Fe LV and FIV infections are two of the most common and fatal feline diseases worldwide. Infections can cause severe immune suppression and anemia and r esult in increased risk of other infections. LT CI is the first and only approved treatment aid in the United States for cats suffering from FeLV and FIV infections. LT CI enhances the immune status of FeLV/FIVinfected cats with a corresponding, significant improvement in clinical symptoms. The therapeutic effects appear to be longlasting and without any side effects. TC yte Therapeutics website, www.TCyte.com, and new online capabilities mean that both pet owners and veterinarians can keep up-to-date on advances in the care and treatment of Fe LV and FIV, and animal clinics can directly order and manage timely shipments of LT CI, particularly in cases of critically ill patients. The site also features educational and product information on retroviral health care and plans to add a searchable database of veterinary clinics across the country that offer LTCI for cats with FeLV and/or FIV. TC yte Therapeutics is dedicated to providing safe, effective, science-based products that enhance the health of animals, allowing o wners to enjoy their longerlived and healthier animals. T erry Beardsley, founder and principal clinical r esearcher behind LTCI, while a faculty member at UCLA, demonstrated that r etrovirus infection alters the structure of the thymus gland and its ability to produce mature functional Tcells; that retrovirus infection of thymic epithelial cells caused defective T-cell development, leading to immune deficiency and/or leukemia. Dr Beardsleys studies showed that his lymphocyte T -cell immunomodulator molecule could be used as a therapy for treating immuno-compromised cats.

D id it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you will all be voted out? W ake up. They already have their own people ready to step in. I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave soldiers votes. At least some felons are legal citizens. What part of illegal is so hard to understand? Crossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and holding a license is a privilege. I know a few people who have been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of identity theft and giving out false Social Security numbers? Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools, y et illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children could not travel to an out-of-state school and expect to get in-state tuition, yet we give it to illegal aliens, not to mention every form of public aid and top priority for scholarships. There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now the M exican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland, yet we have to fight to be patriotic in our own country. Enough is enough, Id move my family to Mexico when it finally empties out, but guess what, you can never become a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected by the military.Stay warm in chilly weatherThis is a grandmother giving advice to some younger people. P lease cover up the little children. It gets chilly in the stores and we have a couple more months of cooler weather. And the older folks should keep warm, too. We dont want you getting sick and passing your germs along.Native American discrimination?We are entering 2012 and the group most discriminated against is Native Americans. Everybody is worried about where they are from and what continent they were born on, but the truth is, the most discriminated group is the group who was here before everyone. The Indian people need to get their land back and everyone else needs to stop thinking its theirs. Go back to where y ou came from. You brought poverty and crime. Give the land back to who deserves it.More ways to conserveId like to give a couple more ideas on how to conserve water. I keep water in the refrigerator so I dont have to wait for the tap water to get cold, and I turn the faucet under the sink in the bathroom to low, so I dont waste water when I brush my teeth. Thinking about the primariesThe primaries are for Americans to vote for who they think is best to serve this nation. The election will be a vote against President Obama and his job killing war on the middle class. Unjust regulation, litigation, taxation and mandated health care are big boots on the necks of small businesses and small banks, which by the way, employ the vast majority of the middle class. Only the big corporations and big banks can afford the burdensome costs that Obamination has caused. So yes, America, even though he says he is for the middle class, President Obama is destroying the middle class with his policies and it has always been the middle class that has made America prosperous and free. M any, if not all, of the worlds greatest leaders were womanizers, but they improved the lives of regular people. A mans sex life is none of our business and what was done to Her man Cain and his family is unforgivable. If Mr. Cain had been another bankrupt career politician, he would have sacr ificed his familys well-being, but he is not a career politician. I live in Florida and Mr. Cain is on the ballot here. I will be voting for the true outsider. I will be voting for a man who knows what a small business needs to grow and provide jobs for all Americans. I will be voting for the 9-9-9 plan, which will take power and control and corrupt cronyism out of W ashington. No deductions, no loopholes, no subsidies to the powerful. No special interests payoff to corrupt, entitled politicians. I will be voting for a man who knows how to solve problems. I like a president with a clear view of foreign policy. Why do we make nice and give money to our enemies? I will be voting for a man who wants to make America energy independent. I will be voting for a man who will support a fair and just immigration policy. I will be voting for a man who will neutralize class and race warfare by just being himself, a man who has lived the true American dream. I will be voting for a true leader, Herman Cain, in the primary. Americans have said we want change in Washington, a much smaller and fiscally sound government and one whose programs work properly, while providing the service they we re originally meant to do. This man can bring us together and lead us back to prosperity. Herman Cain can and will get America back on its feet. He loves America and will never hurt her. Repeal ObamacareIf we accomplish just one thing in 2012 it should be to r epeal Obamacare. When we allow political ideology to trump the health of the individual, we have made a terrible mistake. The federal government response to Hurricane Katrina compounded a natural disaster. The present recession is an example of how politicians permitted political correctness to bring down the economy of the entire nation. The post office annually loses $5 billion and has no idea of how to correct the situation. H opefully, we can make more than one improvement next y ear, but getting rid of a federal mandate controlling our health would be super.Scare tactics didnt workD espite the scare tactics of environmentalists, shale gas is shaving energy bills for an increasing number of customers. And the savings are huge. R eflecting improving technology and significant increases in supply, in some places, prices have fallen by almost half in three years. As the industry expands, expect to hear even more positive news.Justice system failureM ichael Plumadore, a 39-year-old, is another example of how the Florida system of so-called justice is a colossal mess. Living in a trailer park in Fort Wayne, Ind., Mr. Plumadore has admitted to killing and using a chain saw to cut up the r emains of a 9-year-old girl. This despicable murderer had a criminal record here for assault and trespassing. The Florida legal system allowed him to walk free with disastrous results. Its time for reform. Got something to say?

W atching for trafficCliff Partlow /staff photographerA pair of baby raccoons made their way across 77th Street after waiting for traffic to clear and the coast was clear. The pairs brothers and a parent were crying for them after they had already made it to the woods. Happy New Year. It looks like 2012 is going to be a much better year. On the business side of things, with the addition of Ver non and Chris Smith's leadership and support to our management team, H ometown News has made some great strides in several key areas. We also have some very exciting news we will be announcing soon. On the personal side of things, anything would be better than the year my wife, my family and I have gone through this past year. The year started with the passing of my father on Dec 23, a few days before 2011 began and then, of course, the terrible and tragic accident that took the life of my incredible 16-yearold son, Austin, in July. The 150 days that have followed, have been shearagony. There has not been one day that tears have not been shed by both my wife, Elaine, and myself. I know it has been tougher for her, as she was always proud of her status as a stay-athome mom. Now she stays home, but stays there alone. I, on the other hand, am able to block thesaddening thoughts through out most of the day as I focus on the challenges and successes we have experienced here at the paper. Ev eryday we spend time talking to Austin and praying to God that he is OK and doing the work that God took him to do. We talk, but you always wonder if anyone is listening. Is there really something else after you leave your physical body? Is there really another chapter? You want to believe, but you always wonder if it is r eal or justreligions way of keeping people on the straight and narrow while we are here on earth. Let me tell you of a couple of recent experiences that have taken those questions away from us and have pretty much given us hard-core proof that this life is just the beginning. The first incident happened this past November. I had been having some chest pains. Not all the time but they would come at any time, last for anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes; very uncomfortable and somewhat painful. Being the tough guy that I am, I put off going to the doctor until it was happening so often that it was becoming a problem to do all the things that I needed to do. I went in, had the first r ound of tests, and the doc said I better come back for another round as something didn't look right. The second r ound of tests led to a third visit to go in with the heartcatheter to see exactly where the blockage was and to put in a stint. I didn't think of it as any real big deal. It r uns in the family. My father had a pacemaker implanted in his late 40s. The night before I went in, I had a talk with Austin and God. I don't want to go into details, but I would imagine it was pretty standarddialogue any of us would have in a situation like this. The next morning, Elaine took me to the hospital for the procedure. The doc was ready to go and even was bragging to the other doctors that he could tell them where the blockage was to save them some time. They put me under and slid the catheter up and into the heart. Much to the amazement of all the personnel in the room, there was no blockage, it was gone. The heart was pumping as pure as a newborn baby. This gave me cause to pause. Did Austin and God fix my heart? I wanted to think so but Then it happened. The event soblatant, so obvious, in black and white, that it could not be explained away. A ustin sent me a text. That's r ight. Austin texted me. Let me back up.

Most evenings, at the end of the day, Elaine gets upset. She misses our son. S he can look up to see his bedroom door where he would come out and lean ov er the railing to ask us a question or tell her he loved her. She was upset. We talked about him for a few minutes and I tried to make her feel better. I then set my phone down on the patio table and went inside to get something out of our r oom. Inside the bedroom I continued to talk to Austin. "Son, we love you. We wish y ou were here with us. Austin, y ou have to let your mom know you are OK. Come to her, do something, please just let her know you are OK." I went back out to the patio and noticed the phone flashing that I had a message. I clicked on the message and saw that there was an attachment. I didn't recognize the number so I asked, "Elaine, do you know this number? (772) 559-2567." S he said, "That sounds so familiar" she paused, squinting her eyes as she dug deep in her brain for the o wner of that number. Then she looked at me and said, "Steve, that is Austins number." What? What? Austins number? Austins phone has not had service for five months, his phone is in a zip bag under the counter. How could that be Austin's number? There is a ton of strange thingssurroundingthis miracle. The fact that it was sent to my email but never w ent to our email server, only my phone was one of them. I could not open the attachment on my phone so I had to forward it to my email. I w ent inside to open the attachment on our computer. O pening this attachment has changed our life and our outlook on the never-ending question, is there life after death? I opened the attachment and was shocked to see that it was a picture of Austins grandpa. His grandfather passed away last Dec. 23, one y ear to the day. This picture was pulled up attached to a "photo gallery" that resides on our computer. I clicked on the arrow to see the next picture. It was Austin. Nearly every other picture on this photo gallery was a picture of A ustin, back when everything was OK. He let his mother know that he was OK, he let us know he was with grandpa. A ctually, the photo shows y ou what we first saw when the message came to the phone, 9:01p ...FW:IMGOO. Was he telling us...I am good? J ust for the record. I went to the ATT store to see how this could have possibly happen. Ac cording to them, it couldn't. There is no service to that number. No one else has that number. That number does not exist, at least not in this world.QuestionF rom page A6 Save Money, EATOUT!Save Money, EATOUT!50% OFF Gift Certificates50% OFF Gift Certificates www.hometownnewsol.com www.hometownnewsol.com

The Community Church of Vero Beach concert series will start off 2012 with an organ concert with a special twist. R enowned organist Thomas Trenney of Lincoln, Neb., has been engaged to accompany the showing of the 1925 silent film Phantom of the O pera, starring Lon Chaney as the Phantom, on Jan. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the church, said Ryan Kasten, executive director of the concert series. Mr. Trenney is an incredible improviser on the organ, and will improvise during the entire 90 minutes of the movie, Mr. Kasten said. Mr. Trenney is minister of music at First-Plymouth C ongregational Church (United Church of Christ) in Lincoln and is the artistic director of Abendmusik, the Lincoln Concert Series, and music director of a chamber choir he helped create in Bi r mingham, Mich. Last years concert series was all about showcasing the churchs new LivelyF ulcher organ, but not all the ideas were able to be used, including an idea to show a silent film accompanied by the organ, Mr. K asten said. H aving live musicians accompany a movie is not a new idea, in fact, its how silent films in many theaters around the country would be made more entertaining, he said. O ld Fox Theaters had pipe organs and thats how silent films used to be accompanied, with a live organist that would watch the movie and improvise to match what was happening on the screen. It was a seamless transition, moving from moment to moment, Mr. Kasten said. Thats how our parents and grandparents would watch movies, he said. T ypical improvisation includes such things as playing a section of How M uch is that Doggy in the W indow when the film shows a pet store. Mr. Trenney will accompany the whole film, which is about one-and-a-half hours in length, and may incorporate some recognizable sections of Andrew Ll oy d Webers Phantom of the Opera music, but will likely make it up as he goes along, Mr. Kasten said. As a listener, youll have to really pay attention to hear them, I think, he said. A large screen will be set up in the sanctuary of the church to show the film. The movie was a box office success for its time, grossing more than $2 million. T ickets are $25 for adults, $10 for students.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Since 1991, employees at Becker Holdings have opened their hearts to a very special need in the community. They have purchased holiday gifts for children in foster care and for young adults who age out of foster care at 18, who are served through the Childrens Home Society of Florida programs and services. These vulnerable young people represent a unique segment of our community that are separated from their families due to neglect, abuse and abandonment, said Jan Swink, executive director of Childrens Home Society, Treasure Coast Division. F or many, these gifts will be the only gifts that they receive this year and for some, the first gifts they will receive in several y ears. The children will know that a secret Santa somewhere in their community, cares for them. In addition to fulfilling the specific holiday wishes of 20 children, the staff also donated several additional fun gifts, which are high-demand items this season that will help to fill in the gap for many more children who will celebrate the holidays without the love and support of a family. One such example is a y oung woman who is enrolled in the organizations transitional living program. She recently moved into the Youth Tr ansition Center in Vero B each after she aged out of foster care with little more than the clothing on her back. This will be the first time in four years that she will receive holiday presents. Ca seworkers work closely with their young clients to help them assemble their wish list. The list for each individual is then distributed to donors throughout the community. Caseworkers then either deliver the gifts to foster parents or wrap them and deliver them personally to the clients. The transitional living program provides young adults, ages 18-23, with a continuum of care after they age out of the foster care system. Clients receive financial assistance, job training and mentoring to prevent homelessness and break the cycle of abuse and neglect that have been part of their lives. The Youth Transition C enter, located on the Vero B each Campus is a residential component of this program.

F irst, let's get even smarter by learning what cooking terms mean with my cook-a-cabulary, a vocabulary about cooking. Alphabetically speaking, here we go! BASTE: to moisten food while cooking with pan drippings to prevent dryness. BLANCH: to precook in steam or boiling water to r emove skin or to prepare food for canning or freezing. BLEND: to thoroughly mix ingredients with an electric mixer or a whisk until smooth. BRAISE: to cook slowly in a little liquid with the pan tightly covered. BREAD: to coat with breadcrumbs before cooking. BROIL: to cook by direct heat under the broiler of a stove. BU T TERFLY: to split foods horizontally, such as chicken breasts or meat, without separating the sections then laying flat. CARAMELIZE: to melt sugar slowly over low heat until it becomes brown in color. To caramelize onions the same process is followed using a little shortening or water until they become lightly golden and translucent. CO AT : to cover foods with crumbs, flour or batter before cooking. DREDGE: pressing food firmly into seasoned flour to coat heavily. FOLD: to add ingredients gently, such as folding in beaten egg whites by placing a spatula down into the mixture at the side of the bowl scraping along the bottom then coming up and ov er turning the bowl often until well incorporated. GLAZE: to brush a mixture over top of food to give it a shine or hard finish. KNEAD: to work dough with the heel of your hand in a pressing and folding motion. PUREE: to convert food into a liquid or paste using a blender, food processor or food mill. REDUCE: to boil a mixture to evaporate liquid so it becomes thicker. SCORE:to cut narrow criss-cross slits on each side of meat or poultry without cutting through. Any more questions? C an't you feel yourself getting smarter by the minute? Enjoy. Next week it's turkey soup.

Spend any time surfing the Web and you are bound to find stories that are just too bizarre to be true. Heres a sampling, edited for length. And r emember, just because its online doesnt mean its true! From hosted2.ap.org D eputies:Man returned to beer after bank robbery A uthorities said a Tampa B ay area man ordered a beer at a bar, left to rob a nearby bank then came back to finish his beer. The Pasco County S heriffs Office said 52-yearold John Robin Whittle was arrested at the Hayloft Bar in Port Richey. Deputies said he robbed a WellsFar go bank branch, but not before stopping off at the H ayloft for a brew. A bartender there said Whittle ordered a beer, disappeared for about 30 minutes and then returned to his beer. D eputies said they arrested him at the bar about 10 minutes after he left the bank. From guardian.co: Chile daily must pay r eaders for exploding churros Chiles Supreme Court has ordered a daily newspaper to pay $125,000 to 13 people who suffered burns while trying out a published r ecipe for churros, a popular Latin American snack of dough fried in hot oil. The publisher of La Ter cera must pay individual damages ranging from as little as $279 to $48,000. The high courts ruling was announced seven years after the readers burned themselves. J udges determined the newspaper failed to fully test it before publication, and that if readers followed the recipe exactly, the churros had a good chance of exploding. From sfgate.com: W oman says TSA confiscated frosted cupcake A woman who flew back home from Las Vegas said an airport security officer confiscated her frosted cupcake. R ebecca Hains said the Tr ansportation Security A dministration agent at McC arran International Airport took her cupcake and told her its frosting was enough like a gel to violate T SA restrictions on allowing liquids and gels onto flights. H ains, who lives just north of Boston, said the agent didnt seem concerned that the cupcake could actually be explosive, just that it fit some bureaucratic definition about what was prohibited. The TSA was reviewing the situation, agency spokesman Nico Melendez said. Passengers are allowed to take cakes and cupcakes through checkpoints, he said. H ains surrendered the cupcake, but she said the situation highlighted a lack of common sense by the agent and the ludicrousness of TSA policies. I t s not really about the cupcake; I can get another cupcake, she said. Its about an encroachment on civil liberties. Were just building up a resistance and tolerance to all these things theyre doing in the name of security, when its really theater. It is not keeping us safe. From nbcbayarea.com: M an spends $16,000 on virtual sword Who pays for virtual tools to grow a better virtual garden or to slay a virtual dragon, you ask? Plenty of people, despite what Z yngas IPO tells you. A man in China recently spent $16,000 for a virtual sword on a game that has not even been released yet. Age of Wulin, by California-based company Snail G ames, has not been r eleased on mainland China but that isnt stopping some from spending serious cash on the game. The game is a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, better known as MMORPGs. A study r eleased earlier in the year v alued the virtual economy for MMORPGs at $3 billion. From today.msnbc.msn.com: M an divorcing wife of 77 ye ars over affair in the 1940s A 99-year-old Italian man is divorcing his 96-year-old wife after discovering that she conducted an affair in the 1940s, reports the T elegraph. The couple have been together for 77 years, but time was no healer when the husband, referred to by I talian lawyers as Antonio C, found evidence of the affair while rummaging through a chest of drawers. Having confronted his wife, who confessed to the affair, he is now seeking a divorce. A ccording to UPI, Antonio came across letters his wife had received from an old lover more than 50 years ago. It is also reported that the couple have five children, 12 grandchildren and a great grandchild.

I hope the holidays left y ou with pleasant memor ies and new-found promise for 2012. F or us, a successful year in golf may mean just getting out a few more times to play. It may mean a new set of irons or a trip to a course youve longed to play. Perhaps it means a career-best round or one with an old friend or r elative. Whatever it is, I hope that you find it. F or the more famous people in golf, I have a few predictions for 2012. While I am nowhere near as famous as Nostradamus, I hope I can be just a bit more accurate with my crystal ball. W ith that, here are my top predictions for 2012. In a move to increase his slipping chances of catching Jack Nicklaus, T iger Woods petitions the powers-that-be at Augusta N ational to trim their invite list for The Masters to 18 players. S eeing as Tigers lone win in the last two years came at his own, limitedfield event, he hopes the same-size field at Augusta will better his odds of winning at put him that much closer to Jacks r ecord for major wins. Alas, despite protests by Al Sharpton and the Rev. J essie Jackson outside M agnolia Lane, the Green J ackets will politely turn down Tigers request. While Tiger will be in the hunt, it will be Jason Day who holds off Luke Donald to slip on the coat come w eeks end. To which Tiger will comment sorely, I wouldnt have even invited him. At the U.S. Open, we will witness the most tightly packed leaderboard in decades. With the Olympic Club playing to a mere 7,060 yards, nearly the entire field will find themselves in the hunt. N ot having to hit long irons and fairway woods into concrete-hard greens will help the short hitters stay in contention. I look for a short-but-accurate player to win this major. We may even see someone from the Champions Tour hoist the cup by nightfall on Fathers Day. On the flip side, I expect to see the youngest champion in history win a major on the ladies side of golf. Lexi Thompson will win a major this year and become the youngest woman to do so by nearly a year. That is if Yani Tseng cools off long enough for anyone other than her to win any tournament. At the Open Championship, Sergio Garcia will finally get that giant gorilla off his back. He will claim his first major in style beating the hottest yo ungster in golf, Rory Mc Il ro y and the man everyone thought hed be riv al to, Tiger Woods, in a playoff at Royal Lytham & S t. Annes. Fo r Garcia it will complete his career comeback that began with back-toback wins on the European Tour late this past y ear. For Tiger, it will be his second near miss of the y ear, something that will begin to eat at him as the y ear progresses. At the years final major, we will see a shootout between no less than six 20-somethings. In the end, Rickie Fowler will triumph. At his press conference after the tournament, he will show up sans hat and with a new haircut. I think we will see the demise of a fine man and golfer this year. Ernie Els putting woes will continue and he will go from the belly putter, to the long putter, to putting lefthanded, to trying a wedge and then a hybrid in an effort to drop a putt. E ls slipped from 42nd in putting in 2010 to 180th in 2011. Its difficult to stay competitive and even harder to stay positive when you cannot make a 3-foot putt. The final nail in the coffin for Els, and the beginning of a slide for others, will come when the Ro yal & Ancient actually bans the long putter. There is currently a rule limiting how short a putter may be. While its difficult to limit the overall length of a specific club, I expect to see the R&A make the swinging of a club by anchoring it to any spot on the body, other than the hands or the wrists, against the rules. With its usual aplomb, the USGA will wait another two years before implementing the same rule. F inally, we will see a mainstay of the U.S. Ryder C up team not make the squad. Sadly, Phil Mickelson, who has seen more than his fair share of mountains to climb, will slide out of the players qualifying for the team on points. Its unlikely that captain Davis Love III, will pick him with so many hot, young players to choose from.

IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG 2 New year a chance to try something new It s a new year and many of us have made resolutions. Some of us have already broken them. We may want to exercise more, eat better or lose weight. Pe rh aps we want to reconnect with friends and family. Some of us may want to try something new. Thats our focus this month. In this issue of Forever Young, youll meet people who tried something they hadnt done before. In some cases it was exercising or taking up a sport. In other cases, it was a change in career or a new pursuit after retirement. Some of the people had physical limitations. Others had survived cancer and rethought their priorities. The common thread for all the stories is that it is never too late to try something new. It doesnt have to be a life-changing move. Sometimes its as simple as taking up bridge or ballroom dancing. All of the people interviewed for these pages have taken that first step, the hardest one of all. Most were apprehensive. M any were afraid theyd make fools of themselves. They decided not let that bother them. What they found was that challenging themselves kept them young, gave them confidence and made them feel better about themselves. We hope you will take that message to heart. If there is something youve always wanted to do, perhaps this is the year you give it a try.

INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG 4 EXERCISE is ageless VERO BEACH If you think youre too old to exercise, or you have too many health problems, y ou should meet Mary Chames. At 88, Ms. Chames had fallen and hurt her back. She had also had knee replacement surgery. T he best thing to do was small exercises, she said. After the back brace came off, I kept going with them so that I could walk better and be more agile. Now almost 90, she goes to the Vero Beach A thletic Club two or three times a week to do exercise to improve her balance, walk better and prevent falls. I t s helped me a great deal, she said. Im not like I was when I was 60 or 70, but Im so much better than I was. Even if you do a few things, y ou make progress. The old bones want to keep moving if we give them a chance. We have limitations we must accept and do the best with what we have. B ob and Carole Del Vecchio own the Vero B each Athletic Club. Mr. Del Vecchio said that he often asks new clients when the best time to start exercising would be. If theyre 70, theyre likely to say that its between 30-40 years of age. I come back with, the best time to start is today, Mr. Del Vecchio said. Its never too late. Y our body will overcome and adapt. Research shows even people in wheelchairs could use walkers or they went from canes to walking. The most important element in an exercise program is that first step, walking though the door. Y ou can lead a horse to water, but you cant make them drink, Mr. Del Vecchio said. They have to have the gumption, willpower and indomitable spirit to walk in the door. Anything worthwhile has hard work behind it, but you will succeed. A lot of older people have had their lives defined by their medical problems and limitations. Life becomes medicalized, Mr. Del Vecchio said. Theres no control. Through exercise and activity, people live longer and are much happiBy Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See EXERCISE, Page 16

7January 2012FOREVER YOU NG INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Bridge: Keeping your mind exercised VERO BEACH Research has shown that keeping the brain active by doing puzzles or crosswords or playing games such as bridge may stave off age-related dementia. Now scientists think that card games like bridge may be the best plan for protecting the brain. It appears that the interaction with other people is as important as the intellectual challenge. An article by Benedict Carey in the M ay 22, 2009, issue of The New York T imes, entitled At the Bridge Table, Clues to a Lucid Old Age, cited r esearch by Dr. Claudia Kawas, a neur ologist at the University of California, Ir vine. W e think, for example, that its very important to use your brain, to keep challenging your mind, but all mental activities may not be equal. Were seeing some evidence that a social component may be crucial. Those findings are welcome news to the many bridge players in the area. David Lambie of Vero Beach, a college student, teaches bridge to classes filled with seniors. S ome learned to play in college but havent played in years, he said. S ome say they dont know a thing but want to play with friends. Mr. Lambie teaches bridge at Barefoot Bay. His classes are open to the public. He suggests to students that they start with his Fundamentals course. The way I designed it, if you know nothing about cards, by the end of the eight-session class, youll know some of the fundamentals. I v e found that even for students who took lessons in college, things have changed in 30 years. There are new ideas on bidding. Taking classes periodically is an important part of learning. Theres always new material. F or those who are worried bridge is too complicated, Mr. Lambie offered r eassurance. I f you can do basic addition and subtraction and like socializing, theres no reason why you cant like it, he said. It takes a little bit of work, but once you learn it, you can go to a bridge club or social bridge setting. Y ou dont have to have a regular partner. I cant extol the benefits enough. It s a mental activity that reinforces positive relationships. Joy ce Pacific of Barefoot Bay began studying bridge with Mr. Lambie last y ear. Fr iends tried to teach me, but they confused me, she said. Im determined with David. I love it. It challenges your brain. Its a very serious game, not like Bingo. Y ou have to remember what youre supposed to know. Im almost 80. I cant exercise a lot and I thought it was a good way to keep my brain active. I know its difficult, but I do like it and I want to learn more. You never stop learning. D avid Lambies next series of bridge classes begin in January at Barefoot Ba y s Community Center.Barefoot Bay is located in southern Brevard County. The classes are open to the public. F or information about class schedules and cost,visit the website www.directordavidlambie.wordpress.com or call (772) 231-5663.Mr. L ambie is available to teach classes in other communities. He also has a free monthly online newsletter.Sign up at his website. By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor F itness for building muscle and confidence VERO BEACH Marcia Nevins, 74, has peripheral neuropathy and has had two operations on herniated discs. She used a cane or a walker to get around. I just felt the next stage was a wheelchair and I didnt like the idea of that, she said. S he decided to enroll at Longevity for Women in Vero Beach because Ginger Stewart, the general manager, had experience working with neuropathy patients. I just wanted to do the treadmill, Ms. Nevins said. I just wanted to get walking. She suggested upper body exercises. Theyre very simple, with 2 pound weights. On the treadmill, I started at 1/8 of a mile. After seven weeks, Im up to half a mile in 20 minutes. Im very pleased. I feel much better and Im not as dependent on my cane. G inger Stewart, general manager at Longevity for Women, sees this all the time. People come in who are discouraged and depressed at the limitations placed on them by their bodies. Theyre building confidence, she said. They start volunteering again. They thought they would have to live this way for the rest of their lives. W e had a lady a while back who used a cane. It took 15 minutes to get through the front door. Her voice was hoarse and she was hardly able to talk. She said, I have not talked to a living human in five w eeks. The woman had withdrawn because she was depressed about her life. S he saw an ad and came in, Ms. Stewart said. She said, I just came in to throw money away. I know its not for me. Within five-six w eeks, she was flying in, still dragging her leg, but without her cane. S he noted that exercise has many benefits, regardless of age. There is increased energy, stamina, a reduced risk of falling, better balance, cardiovascular fitness, osteoporosis prevention and increased muscle strength. Above all is the improvement in attitude. Richard Barattini, the centers executive director said that its important to be realistic. Y ou cant make changes by snapping your fingers, he said. It goes little by little. The name of the game is not how many pounds you lift today, but coming in over a long period of time and making a lifestyle change. Mr. Barratini said that progress is measure in many ways. Changes in mobility, in range of motion and in stamina may be measured in small steps. Changes in attitude and confidence are even harder to quantify. I saw a lady the other day who joined a month ago. She came in with her hair not cared for and no make-up. After two-three visits, shes putting on make-up and fixing her hair. If thats not results, what it? Ms. Stewart echoed the thought. Y oure never too old and its never too late. You have to take that step.

IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG 8 A man of many interests is never bored Iam a man of many interests and hobbies. S ince I was a kid, I have been a serious fisherman and I have pursued that hobby all across the United States. I have fly fished for brook trout in the rushing streams of the high Rocky Mountains, trolled for salmon and walleye in the Great Lakes, trapped crawfish in the swamps of Louisiana, and caught horned pout in Maine. I have landed bonito in Southern California and scooped up grunion from the beach. I have caught cutthroat trout in Idaho and large mouth bass from the Santee Cooper in South Carolina. With a fly rod I caught small mouth, northern and white bass in the Wolf River west of Green Bay, W isconsin. Of course, I have caught most of the fish that swim in Florida waters both fresh and salt. I have given fishing my all. F or most of my life I have also been a car guy and have restored many classic autos. I did a 1959 Chevy pick-up, a very rare 1960 F acel Vega, one of only 200 handmade in Paris, France. I had a 1970 Me r cedes, a 1977 Lincoln Versailles, a Chrysler sedan, a 1966 P lymouth Valiant, and a Bricklin gull wing sports car. I did a fabulous 1949 Chrysler Woody Convertible and many more. I loved each and every one of them. I am a lifelong sports fan and chased most of the balls when I was a young man. It was my honor to see Roberto Clemente play in Pittsburghs venerable Forbes F ield and I saw Sandy Koufax pitch in Chavez Ravine. I watched Stan M usial play a game against Willie M ays in the original Bush Stadium in St. Louis. As a young man I saw a game between the old Washington Senators and the Philadelphia At hletics in D.C. I saw Harmon K illebrew hit one out in Minneapolis, and Ernie Banks do the same in Wrigley Field. Always a football fan, I once watched a game between the H ouston Oilers and Boston P atriots before each changed their names.

9January 2012FOREVER YOU NG INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWS An easy way to stay informed on the election On Jan. 31, Florida Republican voters go to the polls to say wholl get Floridas delegates to the GOP national convention in Tampa this August. While Florida Democrats wont vote in a presidential primary most observers say its virtually certain that the Democratic national convention will nominate President Obama F loridas Jan. 31 primary election could play a major role in the outcome of the r ace for the Republican nomination. To help older Floridians sort out where candidates stand on issues important to voters 50+, AARP Florida is helping voters to track the candidates positions especially on critical pocketbook issues such as protecting and strengthening Social Security and M edicare. AARP is nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates for any election or contribute money to any politicalaction committee or campaign. AARP does work to educate its 37 million members, including 2.7 million members in Florida, on key issues. In O ctober, an AARP Florida poll showed a significant and troubling gap between where some Republican candidates stood on cuts to Social S ecurity and Medicare and where F lorida Republican voters stood. The poll showed that by huge margins at least two to one GOP voters stoutly opposed cuts to future r ecipients Social Security benefits, or cuts to Medicare benefits, as a way to r educe the federal deficit. F or example, Florida Republicans who identified themselves as Tea Party supporters, and who also said they had attended Tea Party events, opposed cuts to Social Security for future beneficiaries as a way to reduce the deficit by a margin of 56.1 to 37.9 percent. The same voters opposed cuts to Medicare as a way to reduce the deficit by 62.1 to 31.8 percent, almost exactly two to one. In other groups of Florida Republican voters, the margins were far more lopsided. Hispanic Republicans opposed Social Security cuts as a deficit-reduction measure by 84.5 percent to 13.5 percent, a crushing sixto-one margin. While Florida Republicans overall opposed cuts to Medicare as a means of reducing the deficit by 70.4 percent to 22.2 percent, Hispanic R epublicans opposed Medicare cuts 77 percent to 16.5 percent, more than a four-to-one margin. Y et much of the political buzz about the GOP primary has centered on ideas for cutting Social Security benefits for future retirees, or reductions to M edicare reimbursements, as a way of lowering the federal governments operating deficit. AARP believes this poll shows a startling disconnect between what W ashington and the candidates are thinking about Social Security and M edicare, and what Florida GOP voters want them to do. The poll showed that those Florida R epublicans likely to vote in the Jan. 31 primary are overwhelmingly 50+, for whom Social Security and Medicare are very important issues. AARP Florida believes it can play an important role by helping voters learn where candidates stand on these critical issues. To make sure voters are getting accurate information, we have posted unedited video voters guides in which several candidates explain their views on Social Security and Medicare in their own words. The voters guide can be found at www.aarp.org/youearnedit If yo u re registered as a Democrat or independent, stay tuned for AARPs voter-education efforts later in the year. O ur association will focus on helping voters get access to important information on state and Congressional candidates and issues in preparation for primary elections in August and general elections in November.

13January 2012FOREVER YOU NG Document your sources in genealogy Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have y ou noted where you obtained this information? Will you remember where y ou found it, next month, next year, or 10 y ears from now? The answer is a guaranteed No. So, starting today, document everything before you get too far down the road and have to backtrack. This will help your research tremendously in the future, when you need to find that elusive bit of information that will help you climb the inevitable brick wall. It also gives other researchers confidence in your work. When I first started researching, I excitedly took down every fact I found. Of course it was correct, it was right there on the official document, in the book at the library, or Grandmother told me. Fortunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can remember where the tombstone is, but I didnt actually document it in my database. There are still many facts in my database that are not documented properly. It is still one of my major downfalls, getting caught up in the story and not wanting to take the time to document. S ending your genealogy out into the world without citing your sources is sending it out with no validation. Almost invariably, when I find some exciting new fact about my ancestor, there is no source given. This leaves me totally in the dark. E xactly where did this date, spouse name, etc., come from? Someone must have known, but chances are, the person that put the information on the Internet, or in the book, just copied it from someone else, who also copied it from someone. As far as I know, it could have, and might as well be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with the exact location from where it was obtained. A source, regardless of how informal, is where we obtained the information. It may have come from a probate record, family Bible, census record, or from Grandma Bessy. Everything needed for another researcher to find this source, should be included. This leaves a trail for y ou, as well as others who want to follow y our line of descent. Tr aditionally, sources have been classified as primary and secondary. A primary record is one created close to the event, such a birth or marriage record or by a person reasonably knowledgeable about the event. A secondary record is one that was created sometime later. The secondary source is not viewed as being as accurate as a primary source, since time and distance often dims memories and distorts the facts. So a secondary source should always be backed up with as many other sources as possible, including a primary one when available. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being correct. Death certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. T ombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A relative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name. This makes a strong case for thoroughly researching each person and finding as many sources as you can. The more sources you find, the closer you can come to deciding which is the correct data. W ith the tremendous amount of information being put on the web, you must always remember that it is all suspect until you have personally verified that it is correct. Never download someone elses information into your work until you document it and are satisfied that the preponderance of evidence shows that this data belongs to y our family. Trying to sort out unrelated individuals, much less whole family groups, from your database, is a nightmare.

A New Year! A new calendar! All the doctors appointments have been crossed off birthdays celebrated holidays enjoyed Time to do it all ov er again! There was a time in my life that I thought New Years Eve was the mother of all adult parties. Celebrating with friends, wearing spandex and heels and feeling like I had a terrible flu the next day were the norm. U ntil motherhood descended. When my fledglings were still in the nest and snuggled in by 9 p.m. I was the Waker. I woke them all to come sit with me and watch the ball drop, and was usually rewarded with daughter No. 1 moaning, Thats nice M om can we go back to bed now? And mumbled grumblings from daughters No. 2 through four concerning thea sanity of waking someone up in the middle of the night to watch TV when the waker informs them daily that they watch too much TV. As they will years and life events fly past in a blur of school plays, r eport cards, (theirs) job transfers and the gaining of a few pounds (Mine). Now Im the Wakee. Mom! You said y ou would come and celebrate with us! The ball is going to drop in five minutes and we are making raisin toast, do you want yours with cream cheese? When I asked this enthusiastic 12-year-old why we were celebrating with raisin toast, the answer made perfect sense. Partiers sip champagne to celebrate, champagne is made from grapes, and grapes turn into raisins! This champagne cousin makes a wonderful toast, literally. Especially if enjoyed snuggled on the couch with loved ones and hot tea served in the good china. Mo re life changing events for my offspring graduations, coming of age, starting college, two of them living on their own more poundage added to my hips and I have become both the Waker and the W akee. This provided me with the opportunity to to question the mental stability of the Wakers. I answered the giggly midnight call with, What the heck are you doing out on the worst night of the year?! Yo u re not drinking, are you? Do you r eally think calling the one person who worries about you with each breath is the most mentally balanced thing to do? Yes, I love you, and I thank you from the bottom my heart for thinking about your mother and r aisin bread when you could be kissing someone. Can I go back to bed now? The tears that flowed when the doorbell rang and my offspring walked in toting loaves of raisin bread and cream cheese while I was still holding the phone dried quickly as we woke their siblings to join us. Only now it was child No. 5 who was declaring the loss of mental cognizance by the three of us. To this day he still allows he had to eat six pieces of toast because he feared for his health should he refuse. The rest of us allow we feared for his health should he eat the seventh. A word to the wise: Chasing-a-caffeine-and-raisinfilled 6-year-old around the couch to r ip a smashed piece of toast from his hand is best not done in a nylon gown and bunny slippers, while laughing hysterically.

Women then didnt do strength training, but there are benefits for both men and women. Strong muscles keep joints separated. When you have bone on bone on the knees, its because the muscles are weak. A misconception people often have is that exercise is for people who are athletic. P eople should think of exercise as making the activities of daily life easier, Ms. Del Vecchio said. It helps to get in and out of a chair, on and off the toilet, reach up to cabinets and carry groceries. St re ngth and flexibility keep muscles pliable so that they dont become stiff and you lose range of motion. Simply, your body needs to stretch and move.

Once I even saw the legendary El Cordobes fight a bull in Ba r celona Spain. I am a pretty fair amateur historian and some consider me to be an authority on beach racing. From time to time I am called on to speak publicly about some of my hobbies. S omehow, with all of that going on, I found time to run a construction business for 26 years and help Lana, my wife of nearly 38 years, raise two great children. WO W! I have really been busy. As most of you have guessed, these days my most rewarding hobby is what I am doing right now writing. S ince I was in fifth grade I have been told that I have the ability to spin a pretty good tale on paper. I used that talent to cruise through the English classes while in school, so if some of y ou detect flaws in my composition it is a result of my youthful laziness. In my life I have emptied hundreds of ballpoints and covered reams of paper with words that no one will ever read. Thats OK, for I do it mostly for myself. S ince I have been writing for this newspaper I have met many of you who have been kind enough to tell me that you enjoy what I do. That, to me, is priceless. Hopefully, some of y ou have discovered through my simple style just how easy it is to write and will consider trying it for yourself. Writing is good for your psyche. It is a release that can cleanse the mind and perhaps even the soul. Ev eryone has a story to tell. Maybe it is your own life story or maybe the accomplishments of your grandchildren. Your subject need not be interesting to the masses. Do it for y ourself. I am certain many of you have thought about it. You may have even said to yourself, I bet I could do what that Dan guy does.

INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOU NG 18 me one of the more memorable ones. Due to certain changes involving Power Surges, sleepless nights and Empty Nest Syndrome I w ent full circle and am once again the Waker and once again the subject of my mental stability came up in the conversation. B eginning with daughter No. 1 and working my way down I struck gold on my third telephone try. My H appy New Year!! was met with, Mom! I totally understand y ou are having problems sleeping and your thermostat is on the fritz, but menopause is not supposed to make me miserable for 10 more y ears! And then its supposed to be mine! I not so gently reminded her that when she was under the influence of morphine following surgery, she had called me 14 times in six hours complaining the fish in the bathr oom were making to much noise. S ipping tea and chewing toast is almost as good via the modern technology of cell phones as it is in person. I cant think of another person for whom the bumper sticker P lease be patient Gods not done with me yet is more appropriate than me, I have been perpetually unfinished for many decades. Ev olving and revolving around those that I love and whatever the world hands me is a full-time job for me and Im thoroughly enjoying every moment. Sometimes it is to the consternation of those who take life more seriously than I do. This year Im resolving to not r esolve. I am replacing resolves with wishes. I wish my bathroom scale would take a backward slide. I wish my tongue would freeze in place at certain times. I wish I could remember to buy books on disks so I could read them on the way to work B ut most of all I wish you raisin toast, hot tea and hearts full of enough love to enjoy them.Y earFrom page 14 Elks Lodge-DOEs Present a H awaiian Luau: at 5 p.m. Saturday, J an. 14 at the Sebastian Elks Lodge 2714, 731 S.

De adline for the February publication is Jan.15.CalendarFrom page 18 T ake a close look at my columns. N othing complicated, right? I try to write as though I am talking with a friend. I work hard to keep out pretentious words that I would not use in everyday conversation. It seems to work. You need not have a huge vocabulary and if you do you certainly shouldnt hit people over the head with it. Words that are inserted to show off your language skills tend to remind your reader that someone is writing at them; not talking to them. As I said before, I write for myself. I am very fortunate to have my musings published, but if that ended tomorrow I would continue to write. I just like doing it. I encourage you to find something y ou enjoy doing and do the hell out of it. Who knows you may even find someone who will allow you to do it professionally. Thank you, Hometown News.
