SEBASTIAN They were men of faith who gave their lives so others might live and their sacrifice will not be forgotten in Indian River County. An 8-foot granite monument depicting four military chaplains who died during World War II when a German torpedo found its mark on their vessel in the waters of the No r th Atlantic Ocean, was dedicated Feb. 14 in Riverview Park in front of scores of people. While the monument and setting is not yet completed in the park, visitors from around the U.S., including some family members of both the chaplains and survivors of the tragic sinking of the USAT Dorchester in 1943, joined with S ebastian city officials, veterans from various wars and members of the community to dedicate the monument and surrounding area so future generations will remember the chaplains example. Though they were of different faiths, the four men: the Rev. George Fox, M ethodist, the Rev. Clark Poling, D utch Reformed, Jewish R abbi Alexander Goode and the Re v. J ohn Washington, Roman C atholic, worked together to help the soldiers escape to lifeboats and comfort those who would not make it.

S he bought a car phone charger and got permission to try it outside in her car. The woman walked back into the store and returned the original packaging with a charger inside. The only problem was the store clerk noticed the charger in the box was of a different brand than the one sold in his store. He demanded she return his charger and pursued her. In the end, she threw it out the car window. When confronted by S tuart police, the woman insisted it was a mistake, as she had put the wrong charger in the box. What she couldnt explain when confronted was why she got to her car and frantically called for boyfriend to return, instead of just opening the door getting the right charger and handing it to the clerk,Not understanding her jobA Fort Pierce woman who worked at a business in J ensen Beach may not have understood her job.

The Super Kids Tr iathlon, put on by the I ndian River County recreation department, will open for registration on Ma r ch 2. The fun, noncompetitive event is designed to introduce children to triathlons and encourage physical activity, said department directors. D ifferent age groups will have different distances to conquer in swimming, biking and running events. The triathlon will be held at the Gifford Aquatic Center on March 31. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. The cost is $10 per child. Pa r ticipants will receive a goody bag, participation awards and certificates, as w ell as oranges and water. The event is not competitive and times and awards, such as first-, secondor third-places, will not be given, said Mike R edstone, assistant director of recreation. This will be the third y ear the recreation department puts on the triathlon at the Gifford Aquatic Center, but the county has a history of promoting physical activity in many ways throughout the years, Mr. R edstone said. In 2010, 35 children participated in the triathlon, but that number skyrocketed last year to 108 participants. Mr. Redstone said he looks forward to even more children getting involved with the event this year. B ike helmets are mandatory and must be worn for the entire bike ride, Mr. R edstone said.

The monument recognizes the sacrifice of four chaplains of different faiths who gave up their life vests to save the lives of soldiers on the sinking USAT Dorchester in 1943 during W orld War II. The setting for the completed monument will include a fountain, reflection pool, brick walkway and eternal flame.B each and he thanked the community for supporting the memorial project financially and with their presence at the dedication. I t makes me want to crythe day has finally arrived and a dream has come true, said Ernie H eaton, who was a private at the time. All you have to do is look around and see the people that are here and are interested. This isnt going to go away and people are going to talk about it, Mr. Heaton said. Pr eserving the memory of interfaith in action is important for future generations to see what it takes to get through difficult times, he said. Mr. Heaton said he r emembers speaking to the four chaplains onboard the ship during their voyage and said the men brought words of comfort to the soldiers. The chaplains outstanding act of heroism came when the ship was sinking and they chose to give up their life vests and stayed onboard the ship, praying for the men all around them, Mr. Heaton said. Only 230 of the 902 people onboard survived. The ceremony was held on Mr. Heatons 89th birthday, a little more than a w eek after the 69th anniversary of the ships sinking. Larry Wapnick, head of the committee formed to design and install the Four Chaplains Monument in S ebastian, said what the chaplains did transcends time and should be shared with future generations. When the monument is completed and installed in the park, it will be on a 10foot base, surrounded by a pool of water with a fountain, and will have an eternal flame burning. S ebastian Mayor Jim Hill said he was proud and honored to have the monument be part of the city and he looks forward to when the whole project is completed and opened for public use. City officials estimate construction will be complete in the summer.

B ut instead, she chose to give away the merchandise for free. S he was observed taking merchandise, voiding it and then handing it to customers who had not paid for it. It might be a nice gesture, but perhaps she didnt consider the economics of it. The business gets money to pay her salary by selling those items. If the business collects no money, she ends up without a job.L eaving evidence behindA Fort Pierce man was rather startled when he arrived home and found a female in his house. She fled and he discovered she had taken $150, a paycheck for $228 and other items. The man didnt know the woman, but he discovered she left a Metro PCS cell phone behind. An officer took the cell phone to a Metro PCS business and learned the identity of the owner. As it turned out, the woman had been in the store shortly before he arrived. She bought a new phone. When confronted later, the woman denied everything, but changed her story after being told she had left her cell phone there. The woman has an extensive criminal r ecord dating back to 1994, when she was charged with burglary.

Cops bullying citizens would be a good place to start. Ev en though Tom Rooneys district has been dramatically changed by redistricting, we are fortunate that he will be able to remain in Congress. He has consistently represented common sense in the form of smaller and more responsible government, a prosperous economy and perhaps most important, much-needed private-sector jobs. Anything he can do to help get Florida moving forward again would help people with homes under water.Deadbeat dads should payIt is destructive that our legal system has the tools but is not using them effectively. If a deadbeat dad is caught he should pay the consequences. Among the guilty in the legal system are state attorneys, judges, hearing officers, child support enforcement employees and lawyers. We have the laws in place. Lets insist on prompt and vigorous enforcement.P ostal service demiseOne of the reasons the postal department is going broke is because they have high rates for us regular people and very low rates for the people who send out junk mail.

At a time when the U.S. faces serious threats from Iran, a near civil war in Syria, a shooting war in Afghanistan and a w eird, unpredictable dictator in North Korea, any reductions in our preparedness are unthinkable. The administrations budget, 12.2 percent down from the level the Pentagon requested last year, is unthinkable. It could mean the suicide of the West. Got something to say?

When it comes to sending attachments through email, most people have one thing in mind: pictures. B ut sending other file types through email can be one of the most massively useful abilities the Internet offers. Picture this: youre working on a file at the office, and its a Word or Ex cel document. A colleague in another part of town or another office needs to see the file. Many people will take the time to print out and physically deliver or fax the document to their colleague, not r ealizing the email system can be used to deliver any kind of file right to another computer. A ttach the file in an email message to your colleague, just as you would if you we re sending a picture. As long as your colleague has the same software that you used to create it, he or she should be able to save it to his or her hard drive or open it just like any other file. Then your colleague can print the document, if he or she wants, or handle it as needed. It is, however, the senders r esponsibility to make sure the recipients will be able to open the file before it is sent. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email message marked H eres the file you wanted only to find that the file is in some format that youve never heard of and your computer cant open it. F or instance, if youre planning to send a Word document, find out what word processor the recipient uses. Even if he is also using Word, he may be using an older version of Wo rd than you are, which could cause a problem if he tries to open a file that was created in a newer version. A quick peek in the help pull-down menu and clicking on the about option will tell you what version your word processor is. Ha ve your friend or coworker check his version also, and then try to save y our document in whatever version he is using. If you click save as and look at the file type or format pull-down menu on the save as box that pops up, yo u ll see you have the ability to save your document in many different formats. This puts the control of the file type in y our hands. The same thing applies when you are trying to send a picture. Make sure its a file that is saved in a format that your intended recipient can open. Usually a .jpg (jpeg) is a safe bet. M ost peoples familiarity with email attachments ends with the occasional picture, but once the idea of transferring files that way becomes clear, a lot of possibilities present themselves. He re are the steps for sending a file: F irst, you need to know where the file you want to send is located on your computer, and exactly what its called. So, if you have a document you want to send, save it and pay attention to the file name and the name of the folder that its saved in. Then, when you have y our e-mail program open, click new message and begin to compose your message. Enter the recipients e-mail address, a comment in the subject field and then click the attach button (which is usually represented by a paperclip icon). N ext, your computer will give you some options. You want to indicate to the computer that you are attaching a file to. Click the appropriate button and then navigate to the location on your hard drive where the file that you want to send resides. (Look in the same folder where you saved it in, and then click on the name of the file to select it). Click OK, and the file name will be listed as an attachment. Y ou can even send multiple files by repeating the procedure. But remember that large files do not always do well, so you want to keep the attachments small in size. A good rule of thumb is 100 kilobytes and smaller for most email. This should cover most office documents such as Wo rd files, but size can be a problem with a file that is r ich with graphics. To check a files size when you go to attach it, right-click it and then click properties. The next window that opens should tell you how big the file is.

Cliff Partlow staff photographer Low-income housing introduced to communityINDIAN RIVER COUNTY By the River hosted its first cocktail reception last week at the beachside home of K.C. and Von Barkley in Vero B each. G uests were introduced to the mission and vision of this first-of-its kind, Sebastianbased nonprofit that provides affordable housing to 4l lowincome seniors in an independent living community and life-enriching programs for both residents and outr each clients in northern I ndian River County. A question and answer session addressed questions from many of the guests who we re eager to find out more about By the River, its needs and how they might be able to support the organization through donations, volunteer opportunities or hosting similar receptions. A ppetizers were donated by Elizabeth D. Kennedy & Co. By the River was founded by Ma J aya as a way to provide low-income seniors with a place to call home and live affordably and comfortably in community. By the River offers a full spectrum of programs designed to keep older residents active and engaged in life, including intergenerational activities, volunteer opportunities, art and music classes, health lectures, fitness plans, yoga and day trips. H elp us turn a life of isolation into one of companionship and joy, said Patti R ooney, CFO at By the River. O ur immediate needs are to create donations to cover operating expenses. We raise about half of our operating funds through rents collected from our low-income residents, but these rents range from $3-$500 per month depending on the residents income. W e raise about 50 percent of our income through rent and must raise another 50 percent to maintain operations and fund the programs and services we provide, she said.

The land is designated as a public and institutional lands district and will undergo some improvements over time to make it a more attractive place for the public to explore and use, the city manager said. Mr. Nunemaker said the challenge course is designed to be difficult, so an average guest to Fellsmere or the surr ounding region would likely not be able to use the course, unless they had some training first. The ropes and challenge course is going to get a lot of attention. Its a very nice amenity for us to have and it meets Army requirements, he said. This is not the first time the city has partnered with Florida Institute of Technology, which is located in Melbourne. The college and city also have agreements regarding use of the C-54 canal for competitive rowing teams, land navigation training and a rock climbing tower, Mr. N unemaker said. I t really has worked out to our mutual benefit for sure, he said. Fr ank Kinney, Florida Institute of Technology vice president for research, was contacted for comment, but did not respond by press time. The Fellsmere Trailhead Pr eserve project will be a gateway to the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, Mr. N unemaker said. The 20,000-acre state park has some access points in Fe llsmere, but improving the access points by adding picnic areas, restrooms, a wetlands overlook and some parking, may encourage more people to check out the trails and greenways in the area, he said. In the long-term, another area of the park will have improved campsites and a playground. The picnic area in the northeast quadrant of the park will be geared toward a day use area for equestrians, and have a horse tie-up area, according to a site plan. Mi nimal paving will be done in the Trailhead Preserve area, though millings, or recycled asphalt, will likely be installed to help the roads become more stabilized, Mr. N unemaker said.

Charlie Christenson, president of the Grant C ommunity Club, has been involved with the seafood festival for as long as he can remember, and still gets excited every year when it comes around. The two-day event, which begins at 9 a.m. each day, is always filled with seafood, of course, but the other thing that can be seen in great numbers at the festival is volunteers, Mr. Christenson said. E veryone there is volunteers and we all put tons of hours into it, he said. Last year, he estimated there were about 600 volunteers each day, helping with cooking and serving food, parking, grounds maintenance and more. A ccording to the 2010 census, the population of Grant-Valkaria is 3,850. N ot all the volunteers at the event come from Grant, but a great number do, Mr. Christenson said. There are plenty of things to enjoy at the festiva l, aside from the food items for sale, including browsing crafters booths and listening to live music. There are no admission or parking fees for the seafood festival. Satellite parking with transportation is available, and parking volunteers will direct motorists to available parking. The festival brings in thousands from around the region who enjoy great seafood. All of the money r aised at the event goes back into the Grant community, said Lauri Chase, one of the festival volunteers. The funds help cover the costs of maintaining the Grant Historical H ouse and Grant Library, as well as provide thousands in scholarship opportunities for students, she said. Last year, between $40,000 and $60,000 was distributed to students and helped pay for recreation programs and parties for children at the Grant Community Center.

SEBASTIAN The Sebastian River High School Lady S harks advanced to the state semi-finals after a win over the Clearwater High School To r nadoes 67-52 Saturday night, winning the regional finals. The Sharks took off at a fast start, getting 3-pointers from Kiandrea KP Pound and a surprise performance by freshman Katie Taylor, who put up two 3-pointers in the first quarter and four for the game. I m so excited, said P ound. Weve been here three years in a row; it feels so good to get this win. Wo r ds cant even describe it. To r nado Javon McTier shot a 3-pointer only to be answered by Pound to end the first with Sebastian up by 12 points. The Sharks lost some of their rhythm offensively, but held strong defensively, keeping the Tornados to 5 points in the second quarter, all scored by Alexandria Alford, a 5 foot 3 inch sophomore, including a 3-point net. I knew I needed to step up my game and we needed to shoot and play our game and we werent doing that, said Alford. Offensively, the Tornados we re making a lot of mistakes with the ball. Communication on the court was lacking, passes went missing or to unaware teammates. In desperation, they r elied on shots outside of the arc, mostly ending in air balls. The score was 36-15 at the half with the Sharks eyes set on a win, but the Tornados came out more organized and scored 16 points in the third quarter. S ebastian had a hard time maneuvering the ball and no points landed on the score board early in the third. The Sharks missed the first six shots and were lacking in rebounds. The Sharks started to pick up speed, and the Tornados took to the chase. Sebastian coaches were screaming slow down from the sidelines. Both teams lost composure and aimed for 3 pointers instead of going for high-percentage shots off the board. They are a really hard team to defend, said Clearwater coach Tom S haneyfelt. They are a very good team and they certainly deserve to go to state. S ebastian finally got it together with a long pass down court to Brittany Jackson and Miah Shephard ended the third with a buzzer-screaming 3-pointer. Clearwater put Jackson in a block in the fourth. The r est of the team stepped up to fill in for the heavily guarded player. I think we did an outstanding job, said Sharks coach Terri Amy. A lot of these seniors have worked their butt off for this. We just need to get them to relax and not to rush things. T aylor scored another two 3-pointers and a 3 from J ackson sealed the win and the regional finals title. This was a great game, said Jackson. All we can do is prepare for the state championship. I knew we could do it and we all feel great right now. We will not let up and we will train and we will defeat whoever it is the next game. S ebastian River will play Nova Hi gh School at 2:30 p .m.

There are several memorable lines from Gone with the Wind, but one of my favorites is Death, taxes and childbirth! Theres never any convenient time for any of them. That is true, but at this time of year, while we may avoid death and childbirth, taxes are with us. This months F orever Young theme is financial and tax planning. Its a subject that makes a lot of us nervous. To ease some of the panic, the issue contains interviews with financial advisers and certified public accountants who have tips on how to plan for retirement and have the type of retirement youve dreamed of. My father, Alfred Koppel, of Stuart, is 93. He has been a CPA for nearly 70 y ears and still has a client or two. In fact, he went to the IRS office in Port S t. Lucie a few months ago for a client audit. He has seen a lot of changes in the industry and the practice of accounting in the days before computers and tax programs. B efore I got certified, I worked as an assistant bookkeeper, he said. I decided I might as well get a job as an accountant. I had two introductory courses under my belt. I answered a few questions and got a job as an accountant. In those days, you had to have a college degree and a years experience before you could complete all four parts of the CPA exam, which included theory, law, auditing, and problems. D ad wanted to start his own practice, but didnt know where to begin. I hadnt the faintest idea of how to go into business, he said. I went from one job to another. I would pick up an account from someone I knew and eventually got a part-time job and had private clients. One of his first clients was a Russian migr. H e had a small shop making cartridges for the Army during the war. We liked each other and one day I got a call from him. He wanted to build houses on post-World War II Long I sland because the construction of the Whitestone Bridge made it easier to get there. He wanted me to be his accountant. Fr om then on, my father built a practice on Long Island, made up of an interesting mix of Europeans and Americans. There was even a Russian princess. My father worked from home at a time when most of my friends fathers traveled into The City on the Long Island Railroad every day. A ccounting, he said, was very different. When you prepared a tax return in those days, there might be 100 calculations to finish. If there was one mistake, you had to do the whole thing over because every calculation changed. It was all done with a pencil, a good eraser, a song and a prayer. A tax return took one to two hours, but if you had to redo it, it took you four. My mother checked the math, going over each calculation. There were so many that you were bound to make a mistake, my father said. Even the calculators were primitive and it was easy to make a mistake. Most of the time, I did it without a calculator. When I first started, I added every long column by hand. Y ou never knew if you picked up the r ight numbers. Sometimes you had to do it over three or four times. It was a lot of extra hard, dirty work. My father noted that both the tax code and audits have become much2IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG A taxing subject Published monthly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Circulation Inquiries: 1-866-913-6397 or circulation@hometownnewsol.comVo ted No. 1 Community Newspaper in America by the Association of Free Community Papers.

Thats what Marc Tomberg, branch manager at Indian River Financial Services in Ve ro Beach, tells his clients. You dont want to wait until the last minute, either. Anybody should be meeting with a financial adviser to develop a plan for retirement, he said. Dont wait to go the year before you retire. At a minimum, have an investment review. Many people have had the same investments for a long time. If you are going to meet with a financial adviser for the first time, there are steps that will make your meeting more productive. Y ou should have some idea of how much you owe on other debts, such as car loans and mortgages, including the interest rate, monthly payment and years left in the loan, Mr. Tomberg said. G et all your investment statements together from the bank and the stockbroker, as well as information on IRA and 401(k) accounts. Know what you will be receiving from Social Security and pensions, and bring the last two tax returns, if possible. This will show different income sources and give insights into your financial picture. That is information the adviser needs from you.

5INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG T heater guild presents historical musical VERO BEACH April 10, 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and event that has been featured in books and movies. The Vero Beach Theatre Guild commemorates the event with a presentation of Titanic: The Musical, from March 15-April 1. The show, with music and lyrics by M aury Yeston and book by Peter Stone, opened on Broadway in 1997 and won five Tony awards, including Best Musical. Although it was a success on Br oadway, it was overshadowed by the Ja mes Cameron movie that came out at the same time. D enise Lee, who is directing the G uilds production, said that the movie and the show are not the same. I t s a totally different story, she said. Its an interesting piece, a birdseye view of the different passenger classes and the lives of the captain and crew. There are vignettes that tell the stories. Its not just one story, and you see it from different perspectives. Its a microcosm of the Edwardian era, from luxury passengers to immigrants going to America with their hopes and dreams. While the cast of 36 is typical for large-scale Guild musicals, it has a unique feature. I t is kind of a popular opera, Ms. Lee said. Much of the score is sung and the music is challenging. Maury Y eston wrote Grand Hotel and the music is majestic. Thats what makes it interesting to do. The main cast includes Dennis Love as the Captain; John Toohey as the chairman of White Star Line; Larry Str auss as the ships architect; Jim M itchell as the first officer; George Andrews as the third officer; Robin Volsky as Frederick Barrett; Donna R oberts as Henrietta Etches; Glynis S herman and Frank Kaplan as Ida and I sador Straus; Martha Kelly as Charlotte Cardoza; and Dave Panula and R obin Spalin as Alice and Edgar Beane. Ev en though the audience knows what happens at the end, Ms. Lee said that most of the show is upbeat. The theme for this season at the G uild is America, she said. This show typifies the immigrant movement and how people came to be here, thinking of what life would be like for their children and their childrens children. I t s a window into that world. Ev erybody can relate to the immigrant story and its poignant when the tragedy unfolds in the second half. Ms. Lee has worked on Titanic: The M usical before, producing and directing it in St. Louis. I wanted to help arts organizations connect within the community to produce bigger events, she said. There were so many arts organizations and people didnt know each other. I put together a project of the musical, a dinner fundraiser and an historical display. I thought it would be a great project here. The fundraiser took place in February and the historical display about the E dwardian era portrayed in the show will be displayed at Hallstrom House in Ve ro Beach. F or Ms. Lee, directing this show at this time is special. I t was my hope and dream to do this on the 100th anniversary, she said. I think its one of the most challenging projects at the Guild and its a r eal accomplishment for our performers.

6INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Relaxation an antidote for stress VERO BEACH This issue of Forever Y oung deals with financial matters, a stressful subject for many. This year, before tackling your taxes or any stressful topic, it might be a good idea to practice some relaxation techniques. J eanne Fournier is a certified medical hypnotherapist who runs a weekly workshop at The Center for Spiritual Ca re in Vero Beach. Most of her clients are people with insomnia, anxiety or other issues who want to learn to relax. I t is guided meditation for wellness, she said. F irst there is deep breathing. Next is progressive relaxation, where you imagine relaxing parts of the body, one part at a time. The meat is what I change every w eek, the imagery producing healing energy. Fo r Ms. Fournier, the connection between mind and body is clear. There is no real separation between mind and body, she said. It is all connected. In doing this work, you use the mind as a tool to effect change. The mind speaks to the emotions. We use words and images. I suggest a topic and they create their o wn imagery. Theyre deeply relaxed so they can come up with their own images, like a special place in nature. Theres an awful lot of quiet time while I give them time to imagine. Im just guiding them. S ome of Ms. Fourniers clients have had physical pains and some are dealing with emotional stresses such anger and loneliness. T ension and anxiety worsen a condition and how you feel about it, she said. Y ou can replace it with healing images and feel it physically or by feeling calm. Ms. Fournier began her career as a certified medical hypnotherapist some 18 years ago, after leaving the corporate world. She moved to Fort Pierce in 2009 to be closer to family. I left the high-tech industry after 20 y ears, she said. I had been a psych major in college. I went to an open house at the Palo Alto (California) School of Hypnotherapy and never left. I felt an affinity for it. While hypnotherapists are not licensed, certification requires training and supervised practice outside the classroom. Ms. Fournier required additional training to use the techniques with people who had medical issues, including pain management, insomnia and cancer. Ms. Fournier spent 14 years at Breast C ancer Connections, a non-profit organization in Palo Alto that provided support to breast cancer patients. She instituted a program of guided imagery to help patients prepare for surgery, deal with chemotherapy and radiation and manage anxiety. W e would imagine the chemotherapy being received into the body and working with the healing system to completely destroy the diseased cells, she said. The patients felt empowered and were less anxious and more hopeful. Ev en if clients are not facing such serious issue, guided imagery can help. P eople who come regularly benefit from relaxation and are able to sleep. Its also fun. It s like the guided imagery at the end of a yoga class. Its general relaxation and positive imagery. For a little while, there is no else you need to be and nothing else you need to be doing. This is time y ou are gifting yourself. J eanne Fournier holds one-hour weekly relaxation sessions on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.at the Center for Spiritual Ca re, 1550 24th St.,Vero Beach.She is also available for private sessions.For more information,call (772) 332-7202 or visit the website www.imageryfor healing.com.

VERO BEACH Its hard to keep track of all of the changes in tax law. That means its a good idea to consult someone who keeps up on such things. Christopher Tompkins is a certified public accountant in Vero Beach. He said there are several changes people should know about. I n 2013, there will be a 3.8 percent Me dicare tax on unearned income. This change will include capital gains and dividends. It will affect taxpayers with a gross income of $200,000 for single filers and $250,000 for a couple filing jointly. Where it will come into play is if you incur a large capital gain. The tax will kick in and increase the current capital gains rate. Mr. Tompkins suggested that if people have holdings, including real estate or stocks, which could result in large capital gains, they might consider selling and taking the gain before 2013 in order to avoid the additional tax. Mr. Tompkins also suggested looking at tax free investments. A lot of people are into dividend income, he said. Something like this would have you looking at tax-free alternatives such as bonds and annuities. M ost people would be unaware of the change and uncertain how to deal with it. Thats where retaining a qualified tax adviser such as a CPA can be invaluable. S o many things are changing, as people saw with the payroll tax cut and estate taxes, Mr. Tompkins said. You want to have a tax adviser who stays informed on tax law. A dditional changes in tax rates may make it advantageous to pay tax in 2012 instead of 2013. M ost experts tell you not to pay tax before its time, Mr. Tompkins said. H ow ever, the top rate will go from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. You dont want to just pay taxes for tax purposes. You have to look at the whole picture and make sure it makes fiscal sense. You dont want to get rid of good investments just to pay taxes up front. Ev en if these changes dont affect you, there are things you should be doing to manage your money wisely. The first thing is to reduce debt, Mr. T ompkins said. That means paying down credit cards, mortgages and car loans. Presently, there arent great yields from saving, but reducing debt is the main thing almost everyone can do. P lanning for r etirement is something that should start as soon as you begin working. P eople should start planning from Day 1, he said. Take a little out and pay yourself. You pay Netflix $10 a month. Why not pay yourself? Mr. Tompkins is a firm believer in paying as you go.7INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Building a stable foundation for r etirementBy Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See CHANGES, Page 10

8INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Even hippies gotta worry about money eventually It was a little confusing for me to watch our peace and love generation morph into our parents. We had pledged to each other that we could make the planet a better place by avoiding the 9-to-5 r at race that had ensnared our hapless parents. We vowed that the pursuit of the almighty dollar would never be a part of our future. N ot us. We would spend our time hanging out with friends, smoking Mother N ature and listening to cool music. It was all to be so idyllic and pastoral. O ur very own take on living the good life. Then it happened. Z AP! R eality hit like a lightning bolt. C ollege money dried up and our parents cut us loose. We had no choice but to take our two years of P oly-Sci or our philosophy degree out into the workplace and try to turn them into cash. It proved to be very difficult. Y et, when we did go to work, we excelled like none before us. The post war generation authored an explosion of new and exciting ideas that carry us till this day. Technology would be our gift to the world. While we were doing that, however, we ignored one basic fact: Our country was built on hard work. The kids who went to San Francisco with flowers in their hair had no interest in doing the mundane labor that carries this great nation. Ours was a larger, more ethereal (and less physically demanding) calling. At least that was how we perceived it. As for me, I found out that once I married my little hippy girlfriend a whole lot of responsibility was part of the deal. When the kids came along forget about it I had no choice but to immerse myself in the work that would provide the cash to sustain us. It was amazing how fast my ideals began to conform. My peace sign quickly turned into a Mer cedes emblem. In my younger days I had searched for the perfect high, but now my goal was the perfect mutual fund. The horror! The changes were insidious. As the years passed I didnt even r ealize that my interest in the Rolling S tones had been replaced by my worry over kidney stones. I had started out protesting against the man and now I was the man. R unning a business, raising children, paying a mortgage and fretting about my federal income taxes. When I looked into the mirror I could no longer see the long-haired kid who lounged away his days playing harmonica in the park at Haight Ashbury. Back then I had been concerned about mans injustice to man, but now my problems were personal. I had gone from scoring killer weed to buying weed killer.

Harlow has a high-voltage razor CALEND AR See CALENDAR, Page 12 Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have you noted where y ou obtained this information? Will y ou remember where you found it, next month, year, or 10 years from now? The answer is a guaranteed NO. So starting today, document everything before you get to 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 r esearchers 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. Fo r tunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can r emember 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 w ell be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with exactly where it was obtained. A source, regardless of how informal, is where we obtained the information. It may have come from a probate r ecord, family Bible, census record, or from Grandma Beth. Everything needed for another researcher to find this source, should be included. This leaves a trail for you, as well as others who want to follow your line of descent. Tr aditionally, sources have been classified as primary and secondary. A primary record is one created close to the event, 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 memori es 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 possible. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being correct. D eath certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. To mbstones 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, y ou 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 your family. Tr ying to sort out unrelated individuals, much less whole family groups, from your database, is a nightmare.

10IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG T omberg said that you should ask the adviser questions, as well. Ask the adviser what types of clients they specialize in, he said. S ome deal more with small businesses, other with insurance and some with retired people. You want someone who specializes in your situation. F eeling comfortable with the adviser is also important. Y ou will be meeting with this person three to four times a year for many years, Mr. Tomberg said. They will know many things about y ou. You need to like and be able to trust that person. There needs to be an open relationship where the clients feel comfortable calling with questions and the adviser can call if something needs to be discussed. Pr ospective clients should find out what the fees are and what services you get for the fees paid. Y ou want to know if compensation is upfront or tied to performance, Mr. Tomberg said. The industry is going to pay-as-you-go, where the advisor might charge a percent of the account to manage the portfolio. If the value goes up, the compensation goes up and if it goes down, so does the compensation. W ith a sales commission, there is little incentive to service the account after the sale, he said. For some advisers, the incentive is to look for new clients instead of working with existing ones. The No. 1 complaint to the industry is not poor investment performance. Its the amount of contact. Most say the adviser doesn t stay in touch enough, but that contact allows insight into the client and helps the adviser do a better job. Mr. Tomberg said he is frequently asked about the best investments. An investment portfolio should be put together based on individual personal goals and risk tolerance, he said. When they retire, many people still have 20 to 30 years of life left. Y ou still need to do longer-term investment planning, trying to plan for two to three decades, not two to three years. P lanning for the long haul means keeping ahead of inflation as much as possible. An investment portfolio that takes on inflation is important, Mr. T omberg said. Keep in mind there needs to be some risk. You cant do it just with CDs and fixed income instruments. You need stocks or something that has a history of staying ahead of inflation, in combination with many other investments. The most important thing in keeping risk down is to have a diversified portfolio.

11IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG I nstead of growing pot I was growing a pot belly. W ith my kids wanting to attend college I had to cut corners. The guy who wanted to change the world was r educed to hunting down the best early bird special. Most of the time I r emained optimistic that my financial situation would change for the better and I would soon be back on my feet. In reality, if I didnt come up with a car payment I would be on my feet soon enough. As tight as money was I remember how shot down I was when the girl at M cDonalds gave me a senior discount on a cup of coffee. Me? A senior? I had to bite my tongue to keep from telling her where to put that discount. I was only 55. Still, once I calmed down, I had to admit that my dreams of a smooth-running BMW had now become dreams of a smooth-running BM. Now when I heard the name Grateful Dead, an image of Dr. Kevorkian would pop into my mind. It was just awful. Now, as a semi-retired individual, I am happy to receive a check from the same government that I once wanted to overthrow. My savings receive almost no interest, and I pay for M edicare that will probably not even be there when I need it. Instead of acid I need an antacid. My K-E-G is now an E-K-G. B ut you know, life these days is pretty good. My beautiful hippie wife Lana is still with me and we raised two great kids. We are OK financially and I have plenty of time to reflect on the journey that I traveled. Becoming my parents was not nearly as traumatic as I once believed. Somewhere deep inside I know that if I had to, I could still spend my days in the park living off Ramen Noodles and peanut butter. I just hope that all of my brothers and sisters survived the trip as well as I did. LandlinesFrom page 8 more complicated. Theres no question the tax code has become more complex, he said. Im not sure if it would have become so complex without computers and calculators because it wouldnt be possible to do it. As computations have become easier to make, the tax codes have become more complicated. T ax audits have also become more complicated. Y ears ago, it was a relaxed situation, he said. The IRS agent came, he knew his stuff and was able to do the job. He would come in, relax, put his briefcase down, work, wed go out to lunch, have a cocktail, come back and finish. He came up with the tax and it was all done that way. The average return did not take very long. I t slowly became more difficult to get an audit done in a short period. The agent has audit procedures and he has to check off everything before he gets finished. They can make no decisions on their own. Theyre not allowed to go out to lunch, but it takes a day or two instead of three to four hours to come up with the same amount of tax. At the end of the interview with my father, my mother, Lillian, got on the phone and told a story that seemed to encapsulate how different things are today. My fathers first cousin, also named Alfred, was also preparing to become a CPA. He was doing his y ear of work experience to qualify and the firm was not paying him because they knew they had a captive audience. He finally asked for subway fare, then 5 cents each way. The firm fired him.

17IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG How to manage personal debt As if anyone needs their memory jogged, debt is a substantial problem for men and women living in fully developed countries. Estimates vary, but numerous surveys have indicated the average American household has more than $10,000 in credit card debt, a figure that doesn't include debt such as mortgages, car loans or student loans. In Canada, an early 2011 report from the Vanier Institute of the Family suggested the debt-toincome ratio for the average Canadian family was 150 percent, which means that for every $1,000 a Canadian family earns, it owes $1,500. What these figures illustrate is that even the most financially savvy debtor may be in a precarious position, one that, should an unforeseen layoff or medical emergency occur, could turn disastrous in a r elatively short period of time. As a r esult, an individual's ability to manage personal debt is of paramount importance, and the following tips can help men and women walking a financial tightrope address their debt in a way that might help them get back on their financial feet. Eliminate bad debt. Not all debt is bad, but credit card debt is rarely good. Card holders with substantial credit card debt should contact their companies as soon as possible to see if the company is willing to work with them on a repayment plan. This is more prudent than declaring for bankruptcy, which will negatively impact an individual's credit score for years to come. Companies are often willing to work with card holders about repayment plans that make it easier to pay down debt. But once an agreement is made, card metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News See DEBT, 18 metrocreativecreativeconnectionIndividuals with substantial credit card debt might be able to reduce the stress of paying down that debt by calling their credit card company and working out a new repayment plan. 682762Custom Shower Enclosures Table Tops Mirrors Glass &Screen Repairs772-299-98525720 U.S. HWY1 VEROBEACH CORNEROFU.S.1 & 57THST BRAND NEW WINDOW SCREENS $15 each 2/$25 Wht/Brn 772-633-5718 687639Assisting Y ou!

F or more information,call (772) 7785249 or visit www.TheEmersonCenter.org.CalendarFrom page 16 holders must make meeting the terms of that agreement their top priority. Stop accruing bad debt. Using a card wisely is the key to avoiding unnecessary debt. When using credit cards, do not use them for everyday purchases like groceries or movie tickets. This type of credit card usage is habit forming, and it's very easy for card holders to quickly amass a large balance on their accounts for items they could just as easily could have paid for with cash. Keep in mind interest will be charged on all balances not paid in full each month, so don't make that cup of coffee or that pair of movie tickets cost even more by adding interest to the overall cost. Pay down high-interest debts first. Always work to pay down high-interest debt first while paying a little more than the minimum on low-interest debt. If a car loan came with an especially high interest rate (hint: borrowers whose down payment on a car loan was small or nonexistent are likely saddled with a high-interest loan), work to pay down that balance as much as possible. Something as simple as paying an extra $25 per month on a $200 per month car payment can reduce the length of time it takes to pay off that loan considerably. Once a high-interest debt is paid off, move on to the debt with the next highest interest r ate. Stop paying the bare minimum. Paying just the minimum will barely cover the interest. That means the principal will hardly disappear, and the debt will be a seemingly impossible obstacle to ov ercome. Pay more than the bare minimum each month, even if it means making sacrifices elsewhere. Avoid borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. Transferring balances from a high-interest card to a lowinterest card is one thing, but borrowing against property or a r etirement savings account is playing with fire. With regards to borrowing against a 401(k), the penalty to do so, not to mention the extra income tax such a withdrawal will accrue, before retirement is substantial. In addition, the value of those retirement savings will suffer considerably as the interest earned will be on that much less money until the full amount is paid back to the account.A void borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.

SEBASTIAN They were men of faith who gave their lives so others might live and their sacrifice will not be forgotten in Indian River C ounty. An 8-foot granite monument depicting four military chaplains who died during World War II when a German torpedo found its mark on their vessel in the waters of the No r th Atlantic Ocean, was dedicated Feb. 14 in Riverview Park in front of scores of people. While the monument and setting is not yet completed in the park, visitors from around the U.S., including some family members of both the chaplains and survivors of the tragic sinking of the USAT Dorchester in 1943, joined with S ebastian city officials, veterans from various wars and members of the community to dedicate the monument and surrounding area so future generations will remember the chaplains example. Though they were of different faiths, the four men: the Rev. G eorge Fox, M ethodist, the Rev. Clark Poling, D utch Reformed, Jewish R abbi Alexander Goode and the Re v. J ohn Washington, Roman C atholic, worked together to help the soldiers escape to lifeboats and comfort those who would not make it.

S he bought a car phone charger and got permission to try it outside in her car. The woman walked back into the store and returned the original packaging with a charger inside. The only problem was the store clerk noticed the charger in the box was of a different brand than the one sold in his store. He demanded she return his charger and pursued her. In the end, she threw it out the car window. When confronted by S tuart police, the woman insisted it was a mistake, as she had put the wrong charger in the box. What she couldnt explain when confronted was why she got to her car and frantically called for boyfriend to return, instead of just opening the door getting the right charger and handing it to the clerk,Not understanding her jobA Fort Pierce woman who worked at a business in J ensen Beach may not have understood her job.

The Super Kids Tr iathlon, put on by the I ndian River County recreation department, will open for registration on Ma r ch 2. The fun, noncompetitive event is designed to introduce children to triathlons and encourage physical activity, said department directors. D ifferent age groups will have different distances to conquer in swimming, biking and running events. The triathlon will be held at the Gifford Aquatic Center on March 31. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. The cost is $10 per child. Pa r ticipants will receive a goody bag, participation awards and certificates, as w ell as oranges and water. The event is not competitive and times and awards, such as first-, secondor third-places, will not be given, said Mike R edstone, assistant director of recreation. This will be the third y ear the recreation department puts on the triathlon at the Gifford Aquatic Center, but the county has a history of promoting physical activity in many ways throughout the years, Mr. R edstone said. In 2010, 35 children participated in the triathlon, but that number skyrocketed last year to 108 participants. Mr. Redstone said he looks forward to even more children getting involved with the event this year. B ike helmets are mandatory and must be worn for the entire bike ride, Mr. R edstone said.

The monument recognizes the sacrifice of four chaplains of different faiths who gave up their life vests to save the lives of soldiers on the sinking USAT Dorchester in 1943 during W orld War II. The setting for the completed monument will include a fountain, reflection pool, brick walkway and eternal flame.B each and he thanked the community for supporting the memorial project financially and with their presence at the dedication. I t makes me want to crythe day has finally arrived and a dream has come true, said Ernie H eaton, who was a private at the time. All you have to do is look around and see the people that are here and are interested. This isnt going to go away and people are going to talk about it, Mr. Heaton said. Pr eserving the memory of interfaith in action is important for future generations to see what it takes to get through difficult times, he said. Mr. Heaton said he r emembers speaking to the four chaplains onboard the ship during their voyage and said the men brought words of comfort to the soldiers. The chaplains outstanding act of heroism came when the ship was sinking and they chose to give up their life vests and stayed onboard the ship, praying for the men all around them, Mr. Heaton said. Only 230 of the 902 people onboard survived. The ceremony was held on Mr. Heatons 89th birthday, a little more than a w eek after the 69th anniversary of the ships sinking. Larry Wapnick, head of the committee formed to design and install the Four Chaplains Monument in S ebastian, said what the chaplains did transcends time and should be shared with future generations. When the monument is completed and installed in the park, it will be on a 10foot base, surrounded by a pool of water with a fountain, and will have an eternal flame burning. S ebastian Mayor Jim Hill said he was proud and honored to have the monument be part of the city and he looks forward to when the whole project is completed and opened for public use. City officials estimate construction will be complete in the summer.

W e are huge fans of Concetta Hall. She just represents all that that is good in public education today and her energy is contagious, Mr. OKeefe said. As district Teacher of the Y ear, Ms. Hall will automatically qualify to run for state T eacher of the Year, district officials said. I am a product of the Indian River County schools, and I hope to reflect the excellence of education system, both as a former student and as an educator, Ms. Hall said. I m r eally excited and honored to represent our county at the state (level). Im hoping to do them proud, she said. Ms. Hall has been teaching in the Indian River County school district for 10 years and graduated from Sebastian River High School. The Teacher of the Year nominees are suggested by their peers and represent the cream of the crop of educators in the county, said Cheryl C onley, former county and state Teacher of the Year winner. I ndian River County has some of the best teachers in the whole state, if not the nation, Ms. Conley said. This is a wonderful opportunity to share in the celebration of the joy of learning and the excitement of teaching, she said. Dur ing the next week or so, Ms. Hall will put together her packet to submit to state evaluators. There are days when I strive to be a childs teacher of the day, because they need that; they need someone to support them and listen to them, Ms. Hall said in a press release. I endeavor to lead students by example, in my classroom, on our campus, across our community and throughout their lives. I am accountable to society for creating great young adults and that is a role that I do not take lightly, Ms. Hall said.EducatorF rom page A1

B ut instead, she chose to give away the merchandise for free. S he was observed taking merchandise, voiding it and then handing it to customers who had not paid for it. It might be a nice gesture, but perhaps she didnt consider the economics of it. The business gets money to pay her salary by selling those items. If the business collects no money, she ends up without a job.L eaving evidence behindA Fort Pierce man was rather startled when he arrived home and found a female in his house. She fled and he discovered she had taken $150, a paycheck for $228 and other items. The man didnt know the woman, but he discovered she left a Metro PCS cell phone behind. An officer took the cell phone to a Metro PCS business and learned the identity of the owner. As it turned out, the woman had been in the store shortly before he arrived. She bought a new phone. When confronted later, the woman denied everything, but changed her story after being told she had left her cell phone there. The woman has an extensive criminal r ecord dating back to 1994, when she was charged with burglary. It would seem that after being a criminal for more than 17 years she would know not to leave a cell phone at a residence she burglarized.BlotterF rom page A1 Se archingThe Search For Y our Car ENDSHERE!Martin County thru Ormond BeachClassified For That Perfect Car? www.hometownnewsol.com V isit us at: www. .comOL 687647

Cops bullying citizens would be a good place to start. Ev en though Tom Rooneys district has been dramatically changed by redistricting, we are fortunate that he will be able to remain in Congress. He has consistently represented common sense in the form of smaller and more responsible government, a prosperous economy and perhaps most important, much-needed private-sector jobs. Anything he can do to help get Florida moving forward again would help people with homes under water.Deadbeat dads should payIt is destructive that our legal system has the tools but is not using them effectively. If a deadbeat dad is caught he should pay the consequences. Among the guilty in the legal system are state attorneys, judges, hearing officers, child support enforcement employees and lawyers. We have the laws in place. Lets insist on prompt and vigorous enforcement.P ostal service demiseOne of the reasons the postal department is going broke is because they have high rates for us regular people and very low rates for the people who send out junk mail. I received three junk-mail envelopes today and all paid only 19 cents and I pay 45 cents.Check your childs social sitesPar ents need to monitor your childs Facebook, Twitter, I nstagram and any other social accounts they have. Some of y our children are not who you think they are. I can tell you from reading my daughters wall that your student of the year is not the character of the year. Some of y our children are really nasty and mean. P lease take a moment to look at your childs pages. Look in their inboxes at the conversations they have and read what they post on others walls. Some of you may be shocked! Some of you may be pleasantly surprised. Take the time and do it now before another student gets hurt. I am begging you, this time it was my daughter who got hurt, next time it could be yours.Europe?What do people mean when they say, Dont follow Eur ope? Thats the whole point! We are already part of Eur ope. What do you think the word global means? Everything talked about today is global. I cant believe so many people dont get it.

Obama pushing for lessstrict laws letting other countries visit Florida! For me, I dont think so! Is n t it enough China is shipping bugs (ticks) into our ports literally killing people and destroying elm trees in M assachusetts? How many of you hear gravel-voiced Henry Kissinger quote, Its time for a new world order? Thats global. One world order,one world system. one curr ency (eventually), one leader. Its here. Like the Three Musketeers, all for one and one for all, which, in the global game, is pure and simple communism. What happens to one country happens to the rest. Who doesnt get this yet?W estern suicide?S ome years ago there was a book about the suicide of the w est. C uts in the size of our defense budget may make the books dire predictions come true. At a time when the U.S. faces serious threats from Iran, a near civil war in Syria, a shooting war in Afghanistan and a w eird, unpredictable dictator in North Korea, any reductions in our preparedness are unthinkable. The administrations budget, 12.2 percent down from the level the Pentagon requested last year, is unthinkable. It could mean the suicide of the West. Got something to say?

When it comes to sending attachments through email, most people have one thing in mind: pictures. B ut sending other file types through email can be one of the most massively useful abilities the Internet offers. Picture this: youre working on a file at the office, and its a Word or Ex cel document. A colleague in another part of town or another office needs to see the file. Many people will take the time to print out and physically deliver or fax the document to their colleague, not r ealizing the email system can be used to deliver any kind of file right to another computer. A ttach the file in an email message to your colleague, just as you would if you we re sending a picture. As long as your colleague has the same software that you used to create it, he or she should be able to save it to his or her hard drive or open it just like any other file. Then your colleague can print the document, if he or she wants, or handle it as needed. It is, however, the senders r esponsibility to make sure the recipients will be able to open the file before it is sent. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email message marked H eres the file you wanted only to find that the file is in some format that youve never heard of and your computer cant open it. F or instance, if youre planning to send a Word document, find out what word processor the recipient uses. Even if he is also using Word, he may be using an older version of Wo rd than you are, which could cause a problem if he tries to open a file that was created in a newer version. A quick peek in the help pull-down menu and clicking on the about option will tell you what version your word processor is. Ha ve your friend or coworker check his version also, and then try to save y our document in whatever version he is using. If you click save as and look at the file type or format pull-down menu on the save as box that pops up, yo u ll see you have the ability to save your document in many different formats. This puts the control of the file type in y our hands. The same thing applies when you are trying to send a picture. Make sure its a file that is saved in a format that your intended recipient can open. Usually a .jpg (jpeg) is a safe bet. M ost peoples familiarity with email attachments ends with the occasional picture, but once the idea of transferring files that way becomes clear, a lot of possibilities present themselves. He re are the steps for sending a file: F irst, you need to know where the file you want to send is located on your computer, and exactly what its called. So, if you have a document you want to send, save it and pay attention to the file name and the name of the folder that its saved in. Then, when you have y our e-mail program open, click new message and begin to compose your message. Enter the recipients e-mail address, a comment in the subject field and then click the attach button (which is usually represented by a paperclip icon). N ext, your computer will give you some options. You want to indicate to the computer that you are attaching a file to. Click the appropriate button and then navigate to the location on your hard drive where the file that you want to send resides. (Look in the same folder where you saved it in, and then click on the name of the file to select it). Click OK, and the file name will be listed as an attachment. Y ou can even send multiple files by repeating the procedure. But remember that large files do not always do well, so you want to keep the attachments small in size. A good rule of thumb is 100 kilobytes and smaller for most email. This should cover most office documents such as Wo rd files, but size can be a problem with a file that is r ich with graphics. To check a files size when you go to attach it, right-click it and then click properties. The next window that opens should tell you how big the file is.

About 45 artists displayed their talent to benefit the ELC and the Cultural Council of Indian River County. Cliff Partlow staff photographer Low-income housing introduced to communityINDIAN RIVER COUNTY By the River hosted its first cocktail reception last week at the beachside home of K.C. and Von Barkley in Vero B each. G uests were introduced to the mission and vision of this first-of-its kind, Sebastianbased nonprofit that provides affordable housing to 4l lowincome seniors in an independent living community and life-enriching programs for both residents and outr each clients in northern I ndian River County. A question and answer session addressed questions from many of the guests who we re eager to find out more about By the River, its needs and how they might be able to support the organization through donations, volunteer opportunities or hosting similar receptions. A ppetizers were donated by Elizabeth D. Kennedy & Co. By the River was founded by Ma J aya as a way to provide low-income seniors with a place to call home and live affordably and comfortably in community. By the River offers a full spectrum of programs designed to keep older residents active and engaged in life, including intergenerational activities, volunteer opportunities, art and music classes, health lectures, fitness plans, yoga and day trips. H elp us turn a life of isolation into one of companionship and joy, said Patti R ooney, CFO at By the River. O ur immediate needs are to create donations to cover operating expenses. We raise about half of our operating funds through rents collected from our low-income residents, but these rents range from $3-$500 per month depending on the residents income. W e raise about 50 percent of our income through rent and must raise another 50 percent to maintain operations and fund the programs and services we provide, she said.

The land is designated as a public and institutional lands district and will undergo some improvements over time to make it a more attractive place for the public to explore and use, the city manager said. Mr. Nunemaker said the challenge course is designed to be difficult, so an average guest to Fellsmere or the surr ounding region would likely not be able to use the course, unless they had some training first. The ropes and challenge course is going to get a lot of attention. Its a very nice amenity for us to have and it meets Army requirements, he said. This is not the first time the city has partnered with Florida Institute of Technology, which is located in Melbourne. The college and city also have agreements regarding use of the C-54 canal for competitive rowing teams, land navigation training and a rock climbing tower, Mr. N unemaker said. I t really has worked out to our mutual benefit for sure, he said. Fr ank Kinney, Florida Institute of Technology vice president for research, was contacted for comment, but did not respond by press time. The Fellsmere Trailhead Pr eserve project will be a gateway to the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, Mr. N unemaker said. The 20,000-acre state park has some access points in Fe llsmere, but improving the access points by adding picnic areas, restrooms, a wetlands overlook and some parking, may encourage more people to check out the trails and greenways in the area, he said. In the long-term, another area of the park will have improved campsites and a playground. The picnic area in the northeast quadrant of the park will be geared toward a day use area for equestrians, and have a horse tie-up area, according to a site plan. Mi nimal paving will be done in the Trailhead Preserve area, though millings, or recycled asphalt, will likely be installed to help the roads become more stabilized, Mr. N unemaker said.

Charlie Christenson, president of the Grant C ommunity Club, has been involved with the seafood festival for as long as he can remember, and still gets excited every year when it comes around. The two-day event, which begins at 9 a.m. each day, is always filled with seafood, of course, but the other thing that can be seen in great numbers at the festival is volunteers, Mr. Christenson said. E veryone there is volunteers and we all put tons of hours into it, he said. Last year, he estimated there were about 600 volunteers each day, helping with cooking and serving food, parking, grounds maintenance and more. A ccording to the 2010 census, the population of Grant-Valkaria is 3,850. N ot all the volunteers at the event come from Grant, but a great number do, Mr. Christenson said. There are plenty of things to enjoy at the festiva l, aside from the food items for sale, including browsing crafters booths and listening to live music. There are no admission or parking fees for the seafood festival. Satellite parking with transportation is available, and parking volunteers will direct motorists to available parking. The festival brings in thousands from around the region who enjoy great seafood. All of the money r aised at the event goes back into the Grant community, said Lauri Chase, one of the festival volunteers. The funds help cover the costs of maintaining the Grant Historical H ouse and Grant Library, as well as provide thousands in scholarship opportunities for students, she said. Last year, between $40,000 and $60,000 was distributed to students and helped pay for recreation programs and parties for children at the Grant Community Center.

SEBASTIAN The Sebastian River High School Lady S harks advanced to the state semi-finals after a win over the Clearwater High School To r nadoes 67-52 Saturday night, winning the regional finals. The Sharks took off at a fast start, getting 3-pointers from Kiandrea KP Pound and a surprise performance by freshman Katie Taylor, who put up two 3-pointers in the first quarter and four for the game. I m so excited, said P ound. Weve been here three years in a row; it feels so good to get this win. Wo r ds cant even describe it. To r nado Javon McTier shot a 3-pointer only to be answered by Pound to end the first with Sebastian up by 12 points. The Sharks lost some of their rhythm offensively, but held strong defensively, keeping the Tornados to 5 points in the second quarter, all scored by Alexandria Alford, a 5 foot 3 inch sophomore, including a 3-point net. I knew I needed to step up my game and we needed to shoot and play our game and we werent doing that, said Alford. Offensively, the Tornados we re making a lot of mistakes with the ball. Communication on the court was lacking, passes went missing or to unaware teammates. In desperation, they r elied on shots outside of the arc, mostly ending in air balls. The score was 36-15 at the half with the Sharks eyes set on a win, but the Tornados came out more organized and scored 16 points in the third quarter. S ebastian had a hard time maneuvering the ball and no points landed on the score board early in the third. The Sharks missed the first six shots and were lacking in rebounds. The Sharks started to pick up speed, and the Tornados took to the chase. Sebastian coaches were screaming slow down from the sidelines. Both teams lost composure and aimed for 3 pointers instead of going for high-percentage shots off the board. They are a really hard team to defend, said Clearwater coach Tom S haneyfelt. They are a very good team and they certainly deserve to go to state. S ebastian finally got it together with a long pass down court to Brittany Jackson and Miah Shephard ended the third with a buzzer-screaming 3-pointer. Clearwater put Jackson in a block in the fourth. The r est of the team stepped up to fill in for the heavily guarded player. I think we did an outstanding job, said Sharks coach Terri Amy. A lot of these seniors have worked their butt off for this. We just need to get them to relax and not to rush things. T aylor scored another two 3-pointers and a 3 from J ackson sealed the win and the regional finals title. This was a great game, said Jackson. All we can do is prepare for the state championship. I knew we could do it and we all feel great right now. We will not let up and we will train and we will defeat whoever it is the next game. S ebastian River will play Nova Hi gh School at 2:30 p .m.

There are several memorable lines from Gone with the Wind, but one of my favorites is Death, taxes and childbirth! Theres never any convenient time for any of them. That is true, but at this time of year, while we may avoid death and childbirth, taxes are with us. This months F orever Young theme is financial and tax planning. Its a subject that makes a lot of us nervous. To ease some of the panic, the issue contains interviews with financial advisers and certified public accountants who have tips on how to plan for retirement and have the type of retirement youve dreamed of. My father, Alfred Koppel, of Stuart, is 93. He has been a CPA for nearly 70 y ears and still has a client or two. In fact, he went to the IRS office in Port S t. Lucie a few months ago for a client audit. He has seen a lot of changes in the industry and the practice of accounting in the days before computers and tax programs. B efore I got certified, I worked as an assistant bookkeeper, he said. I decided I might as well get a job as an accountant. I had two introductory courses under my belt. I answered a few questions and got a job as an accountant. In those days, you had to have a college degree and a years experience before you could complete all four parts of the CPA exam, which included theory, law, auditing, and problems. D ad wanted to start his own practice, but didnt know where to begin. I hadnt the faintest idea of how to go into business, he said. I went from one job to another. I would pick up an account from someone I knew and eventually got a part-time job and had private clients. One of his first clients was a Russian migr. H e had a small shop making cartridges for the Army during the war. We liked each other and one day I got a call from him. He wanted to build houses on post-World War II Long I sland because the construction of the Whitestone Bridge made it easier to get there. He wanted me to be his accountant. Fr om then on, my father built a practice on Long Island, made up of an interesting mix of Europeans and Americans. There was even a Russian princess. My father worked from home at a time when most of my friends fathers traveled into The City on the Long Island Railroad every day. A ccounting, he said, was very different. When you prepared a tax return in those days, there might be 100 calculations to finish. If there was one mistake, you had to do the whole thing over because every calculation changed. It was all done with a pencil, a good eraser, a song and a prayer. A tax return took one to two hours, but if you had to redo it, it took you four. My mother checked the math, going over each calculation. There were so many that you were bound to make a mistake, my father said. Even the calculators were primitive and it was easy to make a mistake. Most of the time, I did it without a calculator. When I first started, I added every long column by hand. Y ou never knew if you picked up the r ight numbers. Sometimes you had to do it over three or four times. It was a lot of extra hard, dirty work. My father noted that both the tax code and audits have become much2IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG A taxing subject Published monthly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Circulation Inquiries: 1-866-913-6397 or circulation@hometownnewsol.comVo ted No. 1 Community Newspaper in America by the Association of Free Community Papers.

4INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Planning key to comfortable retirement VERO BEACH If you are thinking about retirement, its a good idea to have plan. Thats what Marc Tomberg, branch manager at Indian River Financial Services in Ve ro Beach, tells his clients. You dont want to wait until the last minute, either. Anybody should be meeting with a financial adviser to develop a plan for retirement, he said. Dont wait to go the year before you retire. At a minimum, have an investment review. Many people have had the same investments for a long time. If you are going to meet with a financial adviser for the first time, there are steps that will make your meeting more productive. Y ou should have some idea of how much you owe on other debts, such as car loans and mortgages, including the interest rate, monthly payment and years left in the loan, Mr. Tomberg said. G et all your investment statements together from the bank and the stockbroker, as well as information on IRA and 401(k) accounts. Know what you will be receiving from Social Security and pensions, and bring the last two tax returns, if possible. This will show different income sources and give insights into your financial picture. That is information the adviser needs from you.

5INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG T heater guild presents historical musical VERO BEACH April 10, 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and event that has been featured in books and movies. The Vero Beach Theatre Guild commemorates the event with a presentation of Titanic: The Musical, from March 15-April 1. The show, with music and lyrics by M aury Yeston and book by Peter Stone, opened on Broadway in 1997 and won five Tony awards, including Best Musical. Although it was a success on Br oadway, it was overshadowed by the Ja mes Cameron movie that came out at the same time. D enise Lee, who is directing the G uilds production, said that the movie and the show are not the same. I t s a totally different story, she said. Its an interesting piece, a birdseye view of the different passenger classes and the lives of the captain and crew. There are vignettes that tell the stories. Its not just one story, and you see it from different perspectives. Its a microcosm of the Edwardian era, from luxury passengers to immigrants going to America with their hopes and dreams. While the cast of 36 is typical for large-scale Guild musicals, it has a unique feature. I t is kind of a popular opera, Ms. Lee said. Much of the score is sung and the music is challenging. Maury Y eston wrote Grand Hotel and the music is majestic. Thats what makes it interesting to do. The main cast includes Dennis Love as the Captain; John Toohey as the chairman of White Star Line; Larry Str auss as the ships architect; Jim M itchell as the first officer; George Andrews as the third officer; Robin Volsky as Frederick Barrett; Donna R oberts as Henrietta Etches; Glynis S herman and Frank Kaplan as Ida and I sador Straus; Martha Kelly as Charlotte Cardoza; and Dave Panula and R obin Spalin as Alice and Edgar Beane. Ev en though the audience knows what happens at the end, Ms. Lee said that most of the show is upbeat. The theme for this season at the G uild is America, she said. This show typifies the immigrant movement and how people came to be here, thinking of what life would be like for their children and their childrens children. I t s a window into that world. Ev erybody can relate to the immigrant story and its poignant when the tragedy unfolds in the second half. Ms. Lee has worked on Titanic: The M usical before, producing and directing it in St. Louis. I wanted to help arts organizations connect within the community to produce bigger events, she said. There were so many arts organizations and people didnt know each other. I put together a project of the musical, a dinner fundraiser and an historical display. I thought it would be a great project here. The fundraiser took place in February and the historical display about the E dwardian era portrayed in the show will be displayed at Hallstrom House in Ve ro Beach. F or Ms. Lee, directing this show at this time is special. I t was my hope and dream to do this on the 100th anniversary, she said. I think its one of the most challenging projects at the Guild and its a r eal accomplishment for our performers.

6INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Relaxation an antidote for stress VERO BEACH This issue of Forever Y oung deals with financial matters, a stressful subject for many. This year, before tackling your taxes or any stressful topic, it might be a good idea to practice some relaxation techniques. J eanne Fournier is a certified medical hypnotherapist who runs a weekly workshop at The Center for Spiritual Ca re in Vero Beach. Most of her clients are people with insomnia, anxiety or other issues who want to learn to relax. I t is guided meditation for wellness, she said. F irst there is deep breathing. Next is progressive relaxation, where you imagine relaxing parts of the body, one part at a time. The meat is what I change every w eek, the imagery producing healing energy. Fo r Ms. Fournier, the connection between mind and body is clear. There is no real separation between mind and body, she said. It is all connected. In doing this work, you use the mind as a tool to effect change. The mind speaks to the emotions. We use words and images. I suggest a topic and they create their o wn imagery. Theyre deeply relaxed so they can come up with their own images, like a special place in nature. Theres an awful lot of quiet time while I give them time to imagine. Im just guiding them. S ome of Ms. Fourniers clients have had physical pains and some are dealing with emotional stresses such anger and loneliness. T ension and anxiety worsen a condition and how you feel about it, she said. Y ou can replace it with healing images and feel it physically or by feeling calm. Ms. Fournier began her career as a certified medical hypnotherapist some 18 years ago, after leaving the corporate world. She moved to Fort Pierce in 2009 to be closer to family. I left the high-tech industry after 20 y ears, she said. I had been a psych major in college. I went to an open house at the Palo Alto (California) School of Hypnotherapy and never left. I felt an affinity for it. While hypnotherapists are not licensed, certification requires training and supervised practice outside the classroom. Ms. Fournier required additional training to use the techniques with people who had medical issues, including pain management, insomnia and cancer. Ms. Fournier spent 14 years at Breast C ancer Connections, a non-profit organization in Palo Alto that provided support to breast cancer patients. She instituted a program of guided imagery to help patients prepare for surgery, deal with chemotherapy and radiation and manage anxiety. W e would imagine the chemotherapy being received into the body and working with the healing system to completely destroy the diseased cells, she said. The patients felt empowered and were less anxious and more hopeful. Ev en if clients are not facing such serious issue, guided imagery can help. P eople who come regularly benefit from relaxation and are able to sleep. Its also fun. It s like the guided imagery at the end of a yoga class. Its general relaxation and positive imagery. For a little while, there is no else you need to be and nothing else you need to be doing. This is time y ou are gifting yourself. J eanne Fournier holds one-hour weekly relaxation sessions on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.at the Center for Spiritual Ca re, 1550 24th St.,Vero Beach.She is also available for private sessions.For more information,call (772) 332-7202 or visit the website www.imageryfor healing.com.

VERO BEACH Its hard to keep track of all of the changes in tax law. That means its a good idea to consult someone who keeps up on such things. Christopher Tompkins is a certified public accountant in Vero Beach. He said there are several changes people should know about. I n 2013, there will be a 3.8 percent Me dicare tax on unearned income. This change will include capital gains and dividends. It will affect taxpayers with a gross income of $200,000 for single filers and $250,000 for a couple filing jointly. Where it will come into play is if you incur a large capital gain. The tax will kick in and increase the current capital gains rate. Mr. Tompkins suggested that if people have holdings, including real estate or stocks, which could result in large capital gains, they might consider selling and taking the gain before 2013 in order to avoid the additional tax. Mr. Tompkins also suggested looking at tax free investments. A lot of people are into dividend income, he said. Something like this would have you looking at tax-free alternatives such as bonds and annuities. M ost people would be unaware of the change and uncertain how to deal with it. Thats where retaining a qualified tax adviser such as a CPA can be invaluable. S o many things are changing, as people saw with the payroll tax cut and estate taxes, Mr. Tompkins said. You want to have a tax adviser who stays informed on tax law. A dditional changes in tax rates may make it advantageous to pay tax in 2012 instead of 2013. M ost experts tell you not to pay tax before its time, Mr. Tompkins said. H ow ever, the top rate will go from 35 percent to 39.6 percent. You dont want to just pay taxes for tax purposes. You have to look at the whole picture and make sure it makes fiscal sense. You dont want to get rid of good investments just to pay taxes up front. Ev en if these changes dont affect you, there are things you should be doing to manage your money wisely. The first thing is to reduce debt, Mr. T ompkins said. That means paying down credit cards, mortgages and car loans. Presently, there arent great yields from saving, but reducing debt is the main thing almost everyone can do. P lanning for r etirement is something that should start as soon as you begin working. P eople should start planning from Day 1, he said. Take a little out and pay yourself. You pay Netflix $10 a month. Why not pay yourself? Mr. Tompkins is a firm believer in paying as you go.7INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Building a stable foundation for r etirementBy Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See CHANGES, Page 10

8INDI AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Even hippies gotta worry about money eventually It was a little confusing for me to watch our peace and love generation morph into our parents. We had pledged to each other that we could make the planet a better place by avoiding the 9-to-5 r at race that had ensnared our hapless parents. We vowed that the pursuit of the almighty dollar would never be a part of our future. N ot us. We would spend our time hanging out with friends, smoking Mother N ature and listening to cool music. It was all to be so idyllic and pastoral. O ur very own take on living the good life. Then it happened. Z AP! R eality hit like a lightning bolt. C ollege money dried up and our parents cut us loose. We had no choice but to take our two years of P oly-Sci or our philosophy degree out into the workplace and try to turn them into cash. It proved to be very difficult. Y et, when we did go to work, we excelled like none before us. The post war generation authored an explosion of new and exciting ideas that carry us till this day. Technology would be our gift to the world. While we were doing that, however, we ignored one basic fact: Our country was built on hard work. The kids who went to San Francisco with flowers in their hair had no interest in doing the mundane labor that carries this great nation. Ours was a larger, more ethereal (and less physically demanding) calling. At least that was how we perceived it. As for me, I found out that once I married my little hippy girlfriend a whole lot of responsibility was part of the deal. When the kids came along forget about it I had no choice but to immerse myself in the work that would provide the cash to sustain us. It was amazing how fast my ideals began to conform. My peace sign quickly turned into a Mer cedes emblem. In my younger days I had searched for the perfect high, but now my goal was the perfect mutual fund. The horror! The changes were insidious. As the years passed I didnt even r ealize that my interest in the Rolling S tones had been replaced by my worry over kidney stones. I had started out protesting against the man and now I was the man. R unning a business, raising children, paying a mortgage and fretting about my federal income taxes. When I looked into the mirror I could no longer see the long-haired kid who lounged away his days playing harmonica in the park at Haight Ashbury. Back then I had been concerned about mans injustice to man, but now my problems were personal. I had gone from scoring killer weed to buying weed killer.

Harlow has a high-voltage razor CALEND AR See CALENDAR, Page 12 Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have you noted where y ou obtained this information? Will y ou remember where you found it, next month, year, or 10 years from now? The answer is a guaranteed NO. So starting today, document everything before you get to 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 r esearchers 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. Fo r tunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can r emember 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 w ell be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with exactly where it was obtained. A source, regardless of how informal, is where we obtained the information. It may have come from a probate r ecord, family Bible, census record, or from Grandma Beth. Everything needed for another researcher to find this source, should be included. This leaves a trail for you, as well as others who want to follow your line of descent. Tr aditionally, sources have been classified as primary and secondary. A primary record is one created close to the event, 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 memori es 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 possible. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being correct. D eath certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. To mbstones 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, y ou 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 your family. Tr ying to sort out unrelated individuals, much less whole family groups, from your database, is a nightmare.

10IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG T omberg said that you should ask the adviser questions, as well. Ask the adviser what types of clients they specialize in, he said. S ome deal more with small businesses, other with insurance and some with retired people. You want someone who specializes in your situation. F eeling comfortable with the adviser is also important. Y ou will be meeting with this person three to four times a year for many years, Mr. Tomberg said. They will know many things about y ou. You need to like and be able to trust that person. There needs to be an open relationship where the clients feel comfortable calling with questions and the adviser can call if something needs to be discussed. Pr ospective clients should find out what the fees are and what services you get for the fees paid. Y ou want to know if compensation is upfront or tied to performance, Mr. Tomberg said. The industry is going to pay-as-you-go, where the advisor might charge a percent of the account to manage the portfolio. If the value goes up, the compensation goes up and if it goes down, so does the compensation. W ith a sales commission, there is little incentive to service the account after the sale, he said. For some advisers, the incentive is to look for new clients instead of working with existing ones. The No. 1 complaint to the industry is not poor investment performance. Its the amount of contact. Most say the adviser doesn t stay in touch enough, but that contact allows insight into the client and helps the adviser do a better job. Mr. Tomberg said he is frequently asked about the best investments. An investment portfolio should be put together based on individual personal goals and risk tolerance, he said. When they retire, many people still have 20 to 30 years of life left. Y ou still need to do longer-term investment planning, trying to plan for two to three decades, not two to three years. P lanning for the long haul means keeping ahead of inflation as much as possible. An investment portfolio that takes on inflation is important, Mr. T omberg said. Keep in mind there needs to be some risk. You cant do it just with CDs and fixed income instruments. You need stocks or something that has a history of staying ahead of inflation, in combination with many other investments. The most important thing in keeping risk down is to have a diversified portfolio.

11IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG I nstead of growing pot I was growing a pot belly. W ith my kids wanting to attend college I had to cut corners. The guy who wanted to change the world was r educed to hunting down the best early bird special. Most of the time I r emained optimistic that my financial situation would change for the better and I would soon be back on my feet. In reality, if I didnt come up with a car payment I would be on my feet soon enough. As tight as money was I remember how shot down I was when the girl at M cDonalds gave me a senior discount on a cup of coffee. Me? A senior? I had to bite my tongue to keep from telling her where to put that discount. I was only 55. Still, once I calmed down, I had to admit that my dreams of a smooth-running BMW had now become dreams of a smooth-running BM. Now when I heard the name Grateful Dead, an image of Dr. Kevorkian would pop into my mind. It was just awful. Now, as a semi-retired individual, I am happy to receive a check from the same government that I once wanted to overthrow. My savings receive almost no interest, and I pay for M edicare that will probably not even be there when I need it. Instead of acid I need an antacid. My K-E-G is now an E-K-G. B ut you know, life these days is pretty good. My beautiful hippie wife Lana is still with me and we raised two great kids. We are OK financially and I have plenty of time to reflect on the journey that I traveled. Becoming my parents was not nearly as traumatic as I once believed. Somewhere deep inside I know that if I had to, I could still spend my days in the park living off Ramen Noodles and peanut butter. I just hope that all of my brothers and sisters survived the trip as well as I did. LandlinesFrom page 8 more complicated. Theres no question the tax code has become more complex, he said. Im not sure if it would have become so complex without computers and calculators because it wouldnt be possible to do it. As computations have become easier to make, the tax codes have become more complicated. T ax audits have also become more complicated. Y ears ago, it was a relaxed situation, he said. The IRS agent came, he knew his stuff and was able to do the job. He would come in, relax, put his briefcase down, work, wed go out to lunch, have a cocktail, come back and finish. He came up with the tax and it was all done that way. The average return did not take very long. I t slowly became more difficult to get an audit done in a short period. The agent has audit procedures and he has to check off everything before he gets finished. They can make no decisions on their own. Theyre not allowed to go out to lunch, but it takes a day or two instead of three to four hours to come up with the same amount of tax. At the end of the interview with my father, my mother, Lillian, got on the phone and told a story that seemed to encapsulate how different things are today. My fathers first cousin, also named Alfred, was also preparing to become a CPA. He was doing his y ear of work experience to qualify and the firm was not paying him because they knew they had a captive audience. He finally asked for subway fare, then 5 cents each way.

17IND I AN RIVER CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG How to manage personal debt As if anyone needs their memory jogged, debt is a substantial problem for men and women living in fully developed countries. Estimates vary, but numerous surveys have indicated the average American household has more than $10,000 in credit card debt, a figure that doesn't include debt such as mortgages, car loans or student loans. In Canada, an early 2011 report from the Vanier Institute of the Family suggested the debt-toincome ratio for the average Canadian family was 150 percent, which means that for every $1,000 a Canadian family earns, it owes $1,500. What these figures illustrate is that even the most financially savvy debtor may be in a precarious position, one that, should an unforeseen layoff or medical emergency occur, could turn disastrous in a r elatively short period of time. As a r esult, an individual's ability to manage personal debt is of paramount importance, and the following tips can help men and women walking a financial tightrope address their debt in a way that might help them get back on their financial feet. Eliminate bad debt. Not all debt is bad, but credit card debt is rarely good. Card holders with substantial credit card debt should contact their companies as soon as possible to see if the company is willing to work with them on a repayment plan. This is more prudent than declaring for bankruptcy, which will negatively impact an individual's credit score for years to come. Companies are often willing to work with card holders about repayment plans that make it easier to pay down debt. But once an agreement is made, card metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News See DEBT, 18 metrocreativecreativeconnectionIndividuals with substantial credit card debt might be able to reduce the stress of paying down that debt by calling their credit card company and working out a new repayment plan. 682762Custom Shower Enclosures Table Tops Mirrors Glass &Screen Repairs772-299-98525720 U.S. HWY1 VEROBEACH CORNEROFU.S.1 & 57THST BRAND NEW WINDOW SCREENS $15 each 2/$25 Wht/Brn 772-633-5718 687639Assisting Y ou!

B ob Woodward is the associate editor of The Washington Post, and author and co-author of eleven nonfiction national bestsellers. Called the most celebrated journalist of our age, Mr. Woodward has won nearly every American Journalism and several Pulitzer Prize awards. Se r ies ticket buyers have the option of subscribing to the first four speakers for $220 or all five speakers for $275. Single S eats are available from Dec. 1 for $65 per seat. F or more information,call (772) 7785249 or visit www.TheEmersonCenter.org.CalendarFrom page 16 holders must make meeting the terms of that agreement their top priority. Stop accruing bad debt. Using a card wisely is the key to avoiding unnecessary debt. When using credit cards, do not use them for everyday purchases like groceries or movie tickets. This type of credit card usage is habit forming, and it's very easy for card holders to quickly amass a large balance on their accounts for items they could just as easily could have paid for with cash. Keep in mind interest will be charged on all balances not paid in full each month, so don't make that cup of coffee or that pair of movie tickets cost even more by adding interest to the overall cost. Pay down high-interest debts first. Always work to pay down high-interest debt first while paying a little more than the minimum on low-interest debt. If a car loan came with an especially high interest rate (hint: borrowers whose down payment on a car loan was small or nonexistent are likely saddled with a high-interest loan), work to pay down that balance as much as possible. Something as simple as paying an extra $25 per month on a $200 per month car payment can reduce the length of time it takes to pay off that loan considerably. Once a high-interest debt is paid off, move on to the debt with the next highest interest r ate. Stop paying the bare minimum. Paying just the minimum will barely cover the interest. That means the principal will hardly disappear, and the debt will be a seemingly impossible obstacle to ov ercome. Pay more than the bare minimum each month, even if it means making sacrifices elsewhere. Avoid borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. Transferring balances from a high-interest card to a lowinterest card is one thing, but borrowing against property or a r etirement savings account is playing with fire. With regards to borrowing against a 401(k), the penalty to do so, not to mention the extra income tax such a withdrawal will accrue, before retirement is substantial. In addition, the value of those retirement savings will suffer considerably as the interest earned will be on that much less money until the full amount is paid back to the account.A void borrowing from Peter to pay Paul.
