INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Two more local jobs grants were awarded to businesses last week by county officials in an attempt to aid economic development in the county. The two companies benefitting from the $202,000 award are Br idgevine, an existing local webbased firm, and an unnamed new aquaculture company that plans to produce shrimp in Fellsmere. The receipt of the grant funding is contingent on each company meeting employment benchmarks, county staff said. Br idgevine is proposing to add 25 new jobs and could receive up to $129,000 over a three year period. The shrimp farm business plan proposes 52 new jobs, 23 of which qualify for a jobs grant of $73,000. H elene Caseltine, economic development director for the Indian River C ounty Chamber of C ommerce, said each time she brings forward an applicant for the jobs grant, it is exciting, whether for an existing company or a new one.

B ut then there are the fake homeless people. A St. Lucie County deputy was talking with a man he knew to be homeless and the man complained about people pretending to be homeless while soliciting money. As if on cue, a man walked toward the area and was holding up a sign that said, Homeless Vet Please H elp!, an arrest affidavit said. The police officer asked the man a trick question: Where do you live? and his reply was that he lived in a trailer park. One might wonder how a person can live in a trailer park and be homeless. The r eport also did not say whether the man had any evidence that hes a veteran. The man ended up being arrested on charges of trespass and fraud.And if you thought your boss was badA lot of people have complaints about their boss, such as theyre too demanding, theyre rude to employees, etc. But most complaints dont land the manager in jail.

Dur ing the Aug. 21 county commissioners meeting, the board unanimously approved a $195,000 purchase by the Indian River C ounty Sheriffs Office for a Ra dPro SECURPASS whole body security scanning system. S heriff Deryl Loar explained to commissioners that the new technology will allow them to more effectively stop contraband from entering the jail and safeguard deputies. The funds for the new scanner come from an auction surplus, fees paid by r egistered sex predators and offenders and from the law enforcement trust fund, not the regular budget, Sheriff Loar said.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Dont wait until disaster strikes to decide how to handle pet care, local H umane Society representatives said. Animal advocates stand firmly behind the slogan, If yo u go, they go, but if leaving the county in the event of a disaster such as a storm isnt an option, a special pet-friendly shelter is the next best thing. Last year was the first y ear the county prepared a disaster shelter for both people and their pets. The shelter is an option again this year should people need it, but pre-registration numbers are down. I t s been a number of y ears since weve had a disaster and sometimes people get a little lackadaisical, said Ilka Daniel, director of animal services at the Humane Society of Ve ro Beach and Indian River County. There are about 70,000 animals in the county and only enough shelter space for about 2,000, Ms. Daniel said.

This year the fundraiser will be held on Nov. 1 at 13 different locations. Last y ear, more than 5,000 individuals were served, according to a press r elease.

more than one year, said J ason Nunemaker, city manager. City staff under the guidance of the city manager and the Fellsmere City C ouncil have been applying for grants to enhance the infrastructure of the city to help the facility prosper. Road improvements and an extension of natural gas are just two ways that F ellsmere is showing the company a big welcome, Mr. Nunemaker said. Each area of the county has something different to offer businesses, and F ellsmere has a large agriculture base to capitalize on, city leaders believe. W e are trying to find our niche in economic development, Mr. Nunemaker said. The shrimp farm is an outgrowth of the agriculture business Fellsmere is familiar with, and the promise of jobs with varying wages and opportunities for residents to start at the bottom and even work their way up is a positive direction the city wants to encourage, he said. Mr. Nunemaker said F ellsmere is always on the lookout for ways to bring more jobs and economic growth to the community. There is definitely a diversity of things happening around here, Mr. Nunemaker said.

All mosquitos start off in watery places and Indian River County is a popular place for those that like saltmarshes and freshwater breeding places. Ev en though the rainy season in the county is starting to pick up, local experts say the mosquito population is quite manageable at the moment. The basic role of our district is to make it more comfortable for people, said Donald Shroyer, medical entomologist with the Indian River Mosquito Control District. W e havent had to send out the spray trucks for several weeks now, he said. The mosquito control district monitors and manages the mosquito population in the county by watching water levels of areas known to be mosquito breeding grounds, checking for mosquitos carr ying human disease and spraying to exterminate flying adult mosquitos when it becomes necessary, Mr. Sh royer said. W e will never be able to eliminate all the pests but we can help the situation, he said. C urrently, there are no r eports of any of the three mosquito-transmitted viruses, West Nile encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis and eastern equine encephalitis, in I ndian River County. N ot all mosquitos are carr iers of disease, some just make life uncomfortable, Mr. Shroyer said. The wetlands in the county, including the saltmarshes and the citrus groves, are utopia for breeding large amounts of mosquitos. Field inspectors routinely visit those known areas and will apply larvicide to kill the mosquitos. To help stem the population on a larger scale, a small aircraft can contracted to drop granular larvicides. Tr ucks with chemicals targeting adult mosquitos flying around can sometimes been seen driving around at night if the wind is low, Mr. Shroyer said. Residents can help the mosquito control district by ensuring their yards arent breeding grounds for the pesky bugs as well, Mr. Sh royer said. Bir dbaths and gutters have the potential for gathering lots of bacteria that mosquitos in the larvae stage feed on, so keeping those areas clean and clear can keep the mosquito population on your o wn turf much lower. Landscaping can also make a different, Mr. Shroyer said. Br omeliads, a popular tropical plant, often hold water inside them that mosquito can find. I f you flush them out, you can avoid a bunch of mosquitos near your front door, Mr. Sh royer said. The office of the Indian River Mosquito Control District is located at 5655 41st St., Ve ro B each.For more information about the district,call (772) 562-2393 or visit www.irmosquito.com.By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.comarrested individuals are booked and allowed into the facility. The scanner will allow deputies to see if there are any hidden drugs, w eapons or other contraband under clothing and takes only eight seconds to scan.

Last year, there were about 60 pets pre-registered, but there are less than 40 so far this year. R esidents with pets in designated evacuation areas, such as the barrier island, manufactured homes, homes east of U.S. 1 and flood-prone areas are strongly encouraged to pre-register for disaster shelter at Liberty M agnet School if they have no other place of refuge. Pr e-registering the animals will help the evacuation shelter better prepare, Ms. Daniel said. P ets accepted at the shelter include dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and small animals such as gerbils and hamsters. Each pet must be brought in its o wn carrier and must be up to date on vaccinations and r abies shots. P et owners are also expected to bring at least three days worth of food, water, medications and other supplies for their pets and themselves.

Dur ing a trip to Nicaragua with The Giving Lens, a group of nine photographers we re on board to teach students of Empowerment I nternational the craft and skills of photography and plant seeds that will hopefully produce a great crop in the future. We we re in Granada, N icaragua, for only a week, but in that short time we grew strong, life-long r elationships as we honed their skills and techniques with cameras and by processing their images. By the middle of the week we had climbed two volcanoes, Masaya and Mombacho, took a sunset tour on the water, practiced street photography in one of the local markets and returned to the barrio for a personal tour of the lives of the photography students. These volcanoes are vast. They grow from the ground and dont stop until they are literally in the clouds. Ev en though they see the volcanoes on their horizons, none of the students had ever made the journey in their own backyard where others have traveled thousands of miles to do so. When we finally got to the top, we were met with heavier winds, much cooler temperatures and a visibility of about 100 feet to go with the rainy mist dampening our clothes. The visiting photographers with The Giving Lens knew where we were going and dressed for it. The students hiked the volcanoes in what they had which meant flip flops, second-hand dress shoes, thin T-shirts and maybe a borrowed extra shirt by someone who brought a spare. We stopped at plants and flowers that caught a ray of sunlight, if just for a few moments, and showed the students how to use their cameras like magnifying glasses to create macro photos. At an altitude of 4,400 feet we taught them to create interesting scenic landscape images by including a foreground element such as a unique rock, tree or other object on the hiking trail around the volcanos rim. Another excursion took our entire group on two separate small boats zigzagging Lake Nicaraguas sights during the prime late afternoon light and its connected, long late afternoon shadows. Lake Nicaragua is speckled with hundreds of islands, some not much bigger than the singular house that sits upon them. We wove between the islands with the help of an experienced boat guide who pointed out birds, monkeys and landmarks in Spanish. It was thrilling to watch the students discover their new surroundings while also showing them how to capture and preserve them. D ue to some bad weather we we re held back from taking a trip to another barrio where Empowerment I nternational works with a smaller group of students in a very remote area. I was sorry to have missed meeting more of the group. Instead, the mid-afternoon rainstorms, much like Floridas, forced us inside to work with the students on organizing and editing images in the computer. I mages that are created only have value if they can be accessed and found later with an easy to navigate filing system. After going over those basics and a few Photoshop and Lightroom skills to make the images pop, it was clear to see their understanding of these new concepts was making a difference in their workflow as photographers. This time together ended up being the highlight of this journey second only to the family style meals we shared. While several groups were working on the computers, another was setting up a gallery of framed images made by the students for an upcoming showcase of their work. F or four years now I have dreamed of creating a tour where photographers could come and shoot alongside our kids and explore N icaragua in unison, with the idea of an equal colearning experience, said K athy Adams, EI founder and executive director.

Up to 13 potters can throw bowls at one time in the museums ceramics studio, and although they are all crafting bowls, each potter is as unique as their creations. Mar ia Sparsis has been working with clay for six y ears and enjoys the handson nature of the 3-D art form. I have always loved art and up until clay I couldnt find anything that I could do with any competency, Ms. Sparsis said with a smile. I decided to try and signed up at the museum for classes and Ive been doing them ever since, she said. The clay used by the potters is stoneware and once thrown, trimmed, fired, glazed and fired again, they are food-safe and dishwasher safe, Ms. Sparsis said. When the bowls are completed and the big soup event begins, individuals can buy bowls at $10 each r egardless if they purchase a cup of soup.

S he ended up being paid $610 for time worked by employees. The scheme unraveled as employees began complaining they were being underpaid. C ompany management investigated and discovered what the woman was doing. If the woman ends up spending time in jail, shell discover that she wont get paid any money for her time in jail.A phony cop at a donut shopTheres the old joke about police officers being seen at donut shops. In Ve ro Beach it took a new twist, with a phony cop eating donuts at the shop. The suspect would apparently go into a donut shop and demand free donuts and coffee, saying hes a federal Drug Enforcement Administration agent and a CIA agent. He also claimed to be working for Americas Most Wanted, and investigating crooked cops. Employees of the shop became suspicious after he r efused to provide identification. They asked him to leave and when he wouldnt, they called Vero Beach police. He kept insisting to police he was a DEA agent, but changed his story to say he worked for the Indian River County Sheriffs Office. B ut when pressed, he couldnt provide the name of a supervisor or show a badge. He ended up being arrested for impersonating a law enforcement officer and going to a place where he probably wont get free donuts.If you have information about a crime, c all Treasure Coast Crimestoppers at (800) 273-TIPS.

Re: Leaving the Treasure CoastI was blown away by the Viewpoint letter "Leaving the Tr easure Coast," printed on Aug. 24. I wish the writer only the best of luck in all future endeavors and congratulate them for moving out of this area and moving on with their life. Wake up, people! Everything that was written is true. Only, it is actually worse than what was written and worse than what most people know or believe possible. T en years ago, my husband and I moved to the Treasure C oast. Since living here, we have had experiences that we re real-life nightmares. The worst offenders are the people in power. I personally saw this first hand from a high-security job I held, but unfortunately cannot elabor ate, or the repercussions would be unbearable. I cannot live through that again, nor do I think they would allow me to. W ebster defines a bigot as: A person obstinately and unreasonably wedded to a particular opinion, party, religion, etc., and bitterly intolerant of those who believe differently. In other words, if you aren't from the south and proudly own a Confederate flag, or aren't a Republican, or aren't white, or you happen to be a college educated professional, you are not like "The Powers That Be" on the Tr easure Coast, and therefore you are a threat and they hate you! They want you out of their tiny, tiny world built upon bribes and payoffs, and they will push and push until you must relocate to preserve your way-of-life and y our own sanity. My husband and I will also be leaving the Treasure C oast. We have experienced more bigotry, more prejudice, more medical and dental incompetency, more hatred, and more dishonesty then we ever imagined could exist in this country in this day and age. The natural beauty found on the Treasure Coast is over-shadowed by the ugliness of its people. FYI: We are a white, hard-working, middle-aged, college educated couple from the northeast. Surprised? Don't be we're not like them and I thank God we're not!Must love dogsThese days, seem that almost everyone has a dog. I am not a dog hater by any means, but do not have a dog due to the responsibility that come with dog ownership. Normally, in my neighborhood, you will see people walking dogs at any given time. That being said, my yard is not a toilet for your dogs. My yard is private property, and is w ell maintained by me. We like to keep it that way. Rarely do I see any dog owners with a plastic bag, or any means to pick up after the dogs. I guess they think it's ok to let someone else pick up after the dog leaves refuse on someones lawn. Its not ok, and I have no problem to tell people to keep their dogs off of our property. Dogs also don't belong in grocery stores, restaurants or any other public place. Just because you love your dog and think its the cutest thing on earth, doesnt mean everyone else does.No smooth sailingF or some parents and students, the first day of school was not a smooth one. I am voicing my opinion on behalf of several students at a local elementary school and their concerned, frustrated parents, who on the first day of school, had to find out that their usual school bus stop of eight years has been cancelled, taken off the route and not being available any longer. Parents are angry and upset and dont think that their children should be walking to school. The sudden change in the bus transportation system is causing a lot of frustration and confusion. In response to many of my phone calls to the transportation department, I have been told different variations of why the bus stop has been cancelled. Responses varied from Not our concern; two mile radius to budget cuts. H onestly, it very sad that there is less state money available for our schools and the reality is now trickling down to school buses/routes/stops. Is this the future of our school, our country? I have further received answers concerning the safety of all our students. How much safety can the school system assure when some of our children, age ranges 6-10, are forced to walk to school and/or back home along a busy street, and in a matter of fact, have to cross that street in order to get to and from school and back to their homes. Who will be held responsible if something happen? Would it be the parents fault for not being able to drop off or pick up their children from school? Would it be the schools fault for not providing adequate, safe transportation? Many parents feel that the district is putting students' safety at risk by forcing kids to walk in areas that don't have sidewalks or adequate crosswalks. The most upsetting, however is, that the current bus route passes by the bus stop and only needs to make one simple turn. How much money can the school district really save by cutting off one single turn? The families affected by this decision have been greatly impacted in their daily lives and routines, costing them lots of wasted time, extra money and changes in work schedules. Most of the parents have relied on the bus for three y ears or longer. The change in the transportation system proves again how much our educational system is failing in so many aspects. Thanks to budget cuts on the wrong ends. C utting off our childrens bus stop is simply the craziest way I have heard of for the state and school district to save money. I am disgusted. State and local school systems should really weigh in the factors of safety for all students. In r esponse to the superintendents statement that it was a great first day and everything was well-organized, this may be true to some students and parents. It has, however, left many others angry, frustrated and upset. I am very much concerned about our childrens safety, their wellbeing and their future in a school system where it seems that cutting off money from the budget is the first priority ov er safety, security and responsibility. The ones who are negatively impacted by it are truly our children. It is sad but true. Thank you U.S. Education Department. What comes next?Romneys viewsM itt Romney believes that his business background is excellent preparation for creating jobs. Pr esident Obama believes that more government will help create jobs. If that were true, we've had more government (much more government) over the past four years. We've had no significant job recovery over the past four years. A pparently our president has been able to save only one job his own.P ower hungry presidentAmericans, hopefully, are starting to recognize the need to supervise the bureaucrats and politicians. For far too long, they have been grabbing the power to supervise us. They seize every example of what they call "market failure" and use it to expand government laws, demands, mandates, rules and regulations. President Obama is a painful example of a power hungry politician. The power of effectively supervising government varies inversely with government size. Voters beware!Irresponsible governmentU nder President Obama's weak leadership, our nation's future position in the world is threatened. Our standard of living, our national security and even our domestic tranquility have been put at risk. Irresponsible government spending is the cause. Unbelievably, federal liabilities are growing at a rate of $10 million every minute! All this under President Obama's watch. We have a boy doing a man's job.Obama must goIt is difficult to comprehend how any American could be undecided about this year's election. It is a clear decision, a referendum on president Obama's philosophy and his performance over the past four years. This country will either go down the path of big taxes and big government or we will reverse course and move to get Washington out of our lives. Anyone who fails to grasp the choice must not be paying attention. If we value our freedoms, Obama must go.T oo many handoutsWhile we work hard and try to pay our own way for our families, too many Americans seem to be on the take. The Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. There is one computerr elated topic that keeps generating one question after another. It's a topic that everybody knows about, yet most of us are guilty of not taking it seriously enough. And those of us who do take it seriously are often doing it wrong. What is it that I'm writing about this week? If you guessed backing up your computer, you guessed rig ht! Over the years, I know I have touched on this subject a number of times, but what has prompted me to touch on it again is the other half of the equation that never seems to get any attention. Y ou see, so much time is spent on how important having a backup is, how to perform the backup or what needs to be included in the backup, that the equally important subject of how to restore the backup gets neglected. Then, when disaster strikes and people have to go restore from backup, the r ecovery steps they are following (if any) often don't work. A lot of the backup software that's out there makes assumptions about the backup/recovery situation that don't necessarily fit your situation. Then the steps don't make any sense and you're left feeling lost. He re is a for instance: One backup utility that I know of makes the assumption that the computer itself is intact but the data itself became lost or corrupt. Then, the recovery steps make suggestions such as "double click the r estore icon on your desktop, "which makes no sense if you are restoring after a hard drive crash or r eplacing a computer. Another example involves ghosting or imaging software. This backup concept is that if you regularly image (or ghost) your machine, then recovering from hard drive disaster is a snap. Just r e-image a new hard drive and all of your data and settings are restored exactly as they were right before disaster struck. B ut what happens if the disaster isn't with the hard drive, but with the motherboard? What if you are simply trying to move all of y our data and settings to an altogether new machine? U sually, trying to restore backup data from an image disk only works if the computer that is being reimaged has exactly the same hardware as the machine that is being r eplaced. If you can get the image to load at all (on different hardware) you usually end up with a ton of driver issues and other things that have to be cleaned up. I had one frustrated computer user ask me r ecently, "What good is having the backup running every night if it still costs time and money to have someone come out to r estore it?" I'll answer that here. B acking up your data is a necessary chore. Without a backup running regularly, when you do have a disaster (whether it's a hard drive crash or some other catastrophic failure) then switching to a new machine is easy, if starting with no data is OK with you. B ut what if you would like your new machine to have all your stuff in it? W ouldn't it be nice if your new machine (or hard drive) had all of your documents in your "my documents" folder? W ouldnt you like your new machine to have all of your favorites, contacts and other data that youve acquired over the years? W ouldn't it be nice to have all of that back? W ell, all that stuff has to be restored and the new machine "tweaked" until it matches the way you had it as close as possible.

Pregnant women urged to protect against West NileTREASURE COAST W omens Health Specialists is urging women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant to take extra vigilance in protecting themselves from the West N ile virus during the curr ent national outbreak of the virus. Pr eventive measures are r ecommended during mosquito season or any time there is a West Nile virus outbreak. The best way to avoid contracting the West Nile virus is to protect yourself against mosquito bites. M osquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, so extra vigilance is required at these times, said Pedro J. Cr uz, MD, FACOG, Womens H ealth Specialists. While outdoors, long pants and long sleeves will minimize skin exposure and the chances of being bitten by a mosquito carrying West Nile virus. Applying permethrin to clothing (not skin) can further r educe the risk of insect bites. Pregnant women should consult their personal physician before using any insect repellant on their skin, said Dr. Cruz. M ost people who are bitten by mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus show no symptoms. However, symptoms that may be displayed include headache, high fever, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, and paralysis. No specific treatment for W est Nile virus exists, and the consequences for West N ile virus infection during pregnancy have not been w ell defined. F or these reasons, screening of asymptomatic pregnant women for West Nile virus infection is not recommended. In one confirmed case in the U.S., a mother passed W est Nile virus to her unborn baby and in that case, the child was born with serious medical problems. I n that particular case, it is not known whether the problems were caused by W est Nile or by other factors. Since the evidence shows it is possible to pass W est Nile virus to an unborn child, pregnant women should take immediate steps to reduce their r isk of mosquito bites. If the virus illness is diagnosed during pregnancy, a detailed ultrasound examination of the fetus to evaluate for structural abnormalities should be considered no sooner than two to four w eeks after onset of West N ile virus illness in the mother, unless earlier examination is otherwise indicated, said Dr. Cruz. F or nearly 40 years, W omens Health Specialists highly regarded and modern OB/GYN practice has provided a full range of healthcare services to women through all stages of their lives, through puberty, child-bearing ages, and menopause and beyond. W omens Health Specialists headquarters is located at 3498 N.W. Federal Highway in Jensen Beach.

Since the last update, things have really started to change in the tropics. During the months of June and July, most of the activity had been centered with systems forming close to home. In other words, the storms were born in close proximity to the coastline. S torms of this nature usually do not have enough time to get wound up because they are born so close to land. In A ugust, things begin to make a dramatic change. One look at a satellite loop of Africa will detail an ample supply of thunderstorms and waves moving across the continent toward the A tlantic. The parade is constant and the waves that have the most convection are the most likely candidates to be our next named system. Some will survive, and others might encounter things like vertical wind shear and/or dry air from S aharan Dust and will simply fizzle out like a dud firecracker. The ones that survive can often create a lot of anxiety, as we track them across the ocean. S torms that form far out in the Atlantic are often r eferred to as long-trackers or Cape Verde storms. These cyclones will often take a week or longer to make their track across the ocean. These are the most feared of all storms. Cape Ver de storms have a nasty r eputation of gaining strength rapidly and sometimes blossoming into C ategory 4 or 5 hurricanes. For tunately, a certain percentage of these systems will recurve out to sea before making landfall. Often times, that recurve comes way too close for comfort. A good example was Hurricane Floyd, which created the largest evacuation in peacetime history. O ther times, we are not so lucky. Hurricanes tend to be steered by high pressure r idges, which are present every summer. As troughs move across the northern U nited States, a weakness will develop in the ridge that will allow the storm to r ecurve to the north. If that w eakness develops near y our location, you are going to get a hurricane. In addition, sometimes the leading edge of a ridge will drape right across the center of Florida. This was the case in 2004. Both Fr ances and Jeanne were steered into us by a highpressure ridge that was draped across our region almost all summer. If this scenario develops, you become a central target for almost every bullet that is shot at you. Another factor that can influence storms is whether we are under the influence of El Nino, a warming of the ocean off the coast of South America, or La Nina, a cooling of the waters one or the other condition occurring every four to 12 y ears. Right now, we are in ENSO neutral, which means that neither is playing a part in our weather. This was also the case in 2004 when F lorida was hit from almost every angle possible. So far, we have been protected by both a ridge and by dry air, vertical shear and a high-pressure ridge. This ridge is helping to keep storms well to our south. This has been the case for Ernesto, Florence and D epression 7. I expect these conditions to change as the month progresses, and we must all be ready when it does. As I have said many times before, be sure you have a plan and a hurricane kit ready. Be prepared, and be safe. F or more information and tropical updates, visit us at http://www.hometownw eather.net. Remember Frances and Jeanne? STORM TRACKERJOE ZELENAK Photo cortesy of Don VossDon Voss, the recent recipient of the national Ocean Heroes Award, looks over some of debris he and his crew of volunteers removed from the Indian River Lagoon recently.Local man honored with national awardTREASURE COAST More than a decade ago, he retired here to the Treasure Coast to r elax and feel the sand between his toes. B ut his passion for the envir onment found Don Voss a second career, as well as national recognition when he r eceived the Ocean Heroes A ward in July. I t is quite exciting, Mr. V oss said. I was overwhelmed at the number of people who voted for me. Anytime you can get recognition for what you do, its a big deal. What Mr. Voss does is clean up marine debris in the Indian River Lagoon, a job he has been very busy at for 11 years. The Ocean Heroes Award r ecognizes people who are dedicated to the protection of local waterways. It is awarded by O ceana, an international advocacy group working to protect the worlds oceans. Mr., Voss received his award at a ceremony in Virginia. I moved to Fort Pierce 14 y ears ago to retire, he said. Id been a SCUBA diver since 1971, and I credit diving and snorkeling for saving my life. A war injury he received in V ietnam had doctors thinking he would have increasing difficulty walking, but was able to heal by being almost weightless in the water for hours at a time. B ut while he was in the water, he realized the need for cleanup in the waterways. M y first cleanup dive was in the Sebastian Inlet, he said. When I got out of the water that day I started Marine Cleanup Initiative. S ince that time, the underwater cleanup organization has brought in more than 300,000 pounds of trash out the Indian River Lagoon and the area waterways. The first official cleanup, we had six people and collected more than 6,300 pounds of debris, he said. Weve been doing it every year, and only skipped the year the hurricanes hit. While in the early years, his small team brought up a variety of old debris, now he operates with a volunteer team of more than 400 people. This crew offers their free time, using their own equipment at their own expense, w eek after week, he said. They do it to make our oceans and waterways better. Ev en businesses help his cause. For example, Dive Od yssea in Fort Pierce has contributed by refilling the air tanks Mr. Voss crew and volunteers for free. Nowadays, he sees some things have changed, but others remain the same. The debris is less than in y ears past, he said. And we v e gotten past bringing up the old stuff. B ut what he still encounters saddens him. N ow one-third of the debris is bottles and cans, which means people are deliberately littering, he said. Another third is plastics from fishing lines and nets. The rest is varied: lawn chairs, batteries. This is people just being ignorant. O ceana is proud to shine a light on his hard work, knowing that his efforts are helping us achieve a healthy o cean, said Andrew Sharpless, the CEO of Oceana. Looking ahead, Mr. Voss said he is going to use the r ecognition as a way to educate others. P eople need to understand that this is an ecosystem and everything affects the next thing, he said. This is where we live and make our living. Put your trash in a bag and dispose of it properly, and be responsible. By Dawn Krebsdkrebs@hometownnewsol.com

One of the newest diners in Sebastian is located in the inside corner of the R oseland Plaza. Although it is partially hidden from view at first, customers that try them once usually come back for seconds. The restaurant space itself is open and very clean, in terms of both sanitation and dcor. F ood themed framed art on the wall doesnt scream for attention, but provides a visually appealing topic of conversation around the dinner table. Though the name Coney I sland would suggest an emphasis on hot dogs, the diner has a much more versatile menu that captures both breakfast and lunch customers. R estaurant hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday through Saturday and because breakfast is served throughout the day, it doesnt matter if youre craving French toast at the crack of dawn or the crack of noon. An order of French toast comes with three full, thick slices of bread. The large plate is topped with freshly chosen fruit, such as strawberries and blueberries, and sprinkled with powdered sugar and dressed with a dollop of whipped cream. The rich flavor of the toast and fruit is so full, syrup isnt even necessary. S ugary goodness only goes so far and sometimes a meaty sandwich is what will hit the spot. JDs club sandwich and French fries are a match made in heaven. The fries are seasoned with a special house mixture of spices and add a kick to what normally is considered a nondescript side order. The club sandwich can be served toasted and comes as a towering sandwich with three slices of the bread of your choice. I nstead of piling on razor thin slices of turkey and ham, the sandwich has hefty slices of meat that will satisfy anyone for a full lunch or the leftov ers work well as a snack for later in the day. The diner, owned by Jay R aper and Damon Collins, opened in March. The menu is constantly being improved upon and will offer consistently good meals at an affordable price. JDs Coney Island is located in the Roseland P laza at 13600 U.S.1,Suite 7,Sebastian.For more information,call (772) 581-9137.

Hello smart shoppers. Gone camping yet? With the economy the way it is, you lucky people who have campers are just about the only ones who can take a v acation. Ive come up with a few r ecipes that are a cinch to make while camping. You can get pretty tired of the usual fare: burgers, hot dogs, chicken and steak. Kids love to be able to eat their dinner with a spoon. Whats for dessert? How about whoopie pies? Years ago, when we lived in C onnecticut, we had them while visiting friends. Whoopie pies are the best tasting cake/cookie on the planet. I got the r ecipe and it became a family favorite. Ive seen different recipes in magazines, but none compare with the original. This is a great dessert; just make the cookies and filling at home, then assemble them at the camp site.

H ealthy Families Indian River County is a free, voluntary home-visiting program proven to prevent child abuse and neglect before it starts. Services begin when mom is pregnant and can last until the child is 5. The program equips families with the knowledge and skills they need to create a stable home environment. C ommunity-wide issues the organization and its five funded programs are addressing across the board are: reducing the percentage of women who r eport smoking during pregnancy, increasing the percentage of women entering prenatal care in their first trimester and decreasing the percentage of repeat births to teens.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Two more local jobs grants were awarded to businesses last week by county officials in an attempt to aid economic development in the county. The two companies benefitting from the $202,000 award are Br idgevine, an existing local webbased firm, and an unnamed new aquaculture company that plans to produce shrimp in Fellsmere. The receipt of the grant funding is contingent on each company meeting employment benchmarks, county staff said. Br idgevine is proposing to add 25 new jobs and could receive up to $129,000 over a three year period. The shrimp farm business plan proposes 52 new jobs, 23 of which qualify for a jobs grant of $73,000. H elene Caseltine, economic development director for the Indian River C ounty Chamber of C ommerce, said each time she brings forward an applicant for the jobs grant, it is exciting, whether for an existing company or a new one.

B ut then there are the fake homeless people. A St. Lucie County deputy was talking with a man he knew to be homeless and the man complained about people pretending to be homeless while soliciting money. As if on cue, a man walked toward the area and was holding up a sign that said, "Homeless Vet Please H elp!," an arrest affidavit said. The police officer asked the man a trick question: Where do you live?" and his reply was that he lived in a trailer park. One might wonder how a person can live in a trailer park and be homeless. The r eport also did not say whether the man had any evidence that he's a veteran. The man ended up being arrested on charges of trespass and fraud.And if you thought your boss was badA lot of people have complaints about their boss, such as they're too demanding, they're rude to employees, etc. But most complaints don't land the manager in jail.

Du r ing the Aug. 21 county commissioners meeting, the board unanimously approved a $195,000 purchase by the Indian River C ounty Sheriff's Office for a Ra dPro SECURPASS whole body security scanning system. S heriff Deryl Loar explained to commissioners that the new technology will allow them to more effectively stop contraband from entering the jail and safeguard deputies. The funds for the new scanner come from an auction surplus, fees paid by r egistered sex predators and offenders and from the law enforcement trust fund, not the regular budget, Sheriff Loar said. "I t is not a TSA scanner," he said. The same scanning system is used St. Lucie County, Sheriff Loar said.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Don't wait until disaster strikes to decide how to handle pet care, local H umane Society representatives said. Animal advocates stand firmly behind the slogan, "If yo u go, they go," but if leaving the county in the event of a disaster such as a storm isn't an option, a special pet-friendly shelter is the next best thing. Last year was the first y ear the county prepared a disaster shelter for both people and their pets. The shelter is an option again this year should people need it, but pre-registration numbers are down. "I t' s been a number of y ears since we've had a disaster and sometimes people get a little lackadaisical," said Ilka Daniel, director of animal services at the Humane Society of Ve ro B each and Indian River County. There are about 70,000 animals in the county and only enough shelter space for about 2,000, Ms. Daniel said.

The annual Samaritan C enter Soup Bowl is a highlight of the season and unifies the community in a big way and organizers hope the same is true this year," said Tracey Seagal, executive director of The Samaritan Center. This year the fundraiser will be held on Nov. 1 at 13 different locations. Last y ear, more than 5,000 individuals were served, according to a press r elease.

more than one year," said J ason Nunemaker, city manager. City staff under the guidance of the city manager and the Fellsmere City C ouncil have been applying for grants to enhance the infrastructure of the city to help the facility prosper. "R oad improvements and an extension of natural gas are just two ways that F ellsmere is showing the company a big welcome," Mr. Nunemaker said. Each area of the county has something different to offer businesses, and F ellsmere has a large agriculture base to capitalize on, city leaders believe. "W e are trying to find our niche in economic development," Mr. Nunemaker said. The shrimp farm is an outgrowth of the agriculture business Fellsmere is familiar with, and the promise of jobs with varying wages and opportunities for residents to start at the bottom and even work their way up is a positive direction the city wants to encourage," he said. Mr. Nunemaker said F ellsmere is always on the lookout for ways to bring more jobs and economic growth to the community.

All mosquitos start off in watery places and Indian River County is a popular place for those that like saltmarshes and freshwater breeding places. Ev en though the rainy season in the county is starting to pick up, local experts say the mosquito population is quite manageable at the moment. The basic role of our district is to make it more comfortable for people," said Donald Shroyer, medical entomologist with the Indian River Mosquito Control District. "W e haven't had to send out the spray trucks for several weeks now," he said. The mosquito control district monitors and manages the mosquito population in the county by watching water levels of areas known to be mosquito breeding grounds, checking for mosquitos carr ying human disease and spraying to exterminate flying adult mosquitos when it becomes necessary, Mr. Sh ro y er said. "W e will never be able to eliminate all the pests but we can help the situation," he said. C urrently, there are no r eports of any of the three mosquito-transmitted viruses, West Nile encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis and eastern equine encephalitis, in I ndian River County. "N ot all mosquitos are carr iers of disease, some just make life uncomfortable," Mr. Shroyer said. The wetlands in the county, including the saltmarshes and the citrus groves, are utopia for breeding large amounts of mosquitos. Field inspectors routinely visit those known areas and will apply larvicide to kill the mosquitos. To help stem the population on a larger scale, a small aircraft can contracted to drop granular larvicides. Tr ucks with chemicals targeting adult mosquitos flying around can sometimes been seen driving around at night if the wind is low, Mr. Shroyer said. "R esidents can help the mosquito control district by ensuring their yards aren't breeding grounds for the pesky bugs as well," Mr. Sh ro y er said. Bi r dbaths and gutters have the potential for gathering lots of bacteria that mosquitos in the larvae stage feed on, so keeping those areas clean and clear can keep the mosquito population on your o wn turf much lower. Landscaping can also make a different, Mr. Shroyer said. Br omeliads, a popular tropical plant, often hold water inside them that mosquito can find. "I f you flush them out, you can avoid a bunch of mosquitos near your front door," Mr. Sh ro y er said. The office of the Indian River Mosquito Control District is located at 5655 41st St., Ve ro B each.For more information about the district,call (772) 562-2393 or visit www.irmosquito.com.By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.comarrested individuals are booked and allowed into the facility.

Du r ing a trip to Nicaragua with The Giving Lens, a group of nine photographers we re on board to teach students of Empowerment I nternational the craft and skills of photography and plant seeds that will hopefully produce a great crop in the future. We we re in Granada, N icaragua, for only a week, but in that short time we grew strong, life-long r elationships as we honed their skills and techniques with cameras and by processing their images. By the middle of the week we had climbed two volcanoes, Masaya and Mombacho, took a sunset tour on the water, practiced street photography in one of the local markets and returned to the barrio for a personal tour of the lives of the photography students. These volcanoes are vast. They grow from the ground and don't stop until they are literally in the clouds. Ev en though they see the volcanoes on their horizons, none of the students had ever made the journey in their own backyard where others have traveled thousands of miles to do so. When we finally got to the top, we were met with heavier winds, much cooler temperatures and a visibility of about 100 feet to go with the rainy mist dampening our clothes. The visiting photographers with The Giving Lens knew where we were going and dressed for it. The students hiked the volcanoes in what they had which meant flip flops, second-hand dress shoes, thin T-shirts and maybe a borrowed extra shirt by someone who brought a spare. We stopped at plants and flowers that caught a ray of sunlight, if just for a few moments, and showed the students how to use their cameras like magnifying glasses to create macro photos. At an altitude of 4,400 feet we taught them to create interesting scenic landscape images by including a foreground element such as a unique rock, tree or other object on the hiking trail around the volcano's rim. Another excursion took our entire group on two separate small boats zigzagging Lake Nicaragua's sights during the prime late afternoon light and its connected, long late afternoon shadows. Lake Nicaragua is speckled with hundreds of islands, some not much bigger than the singular house that sits upon them. We wove between the islands with the help of an experienced boat guide who pointed out birds, monkeys and landmarks in Spanish. It was thrilling to watch the students discover their new surroundings while also showing them how to capture and preserve them. D ue to some bad weather we we re held back from taking a trip to another barrio where Empowerment I nternational works with a smaller group of students in a very remote area. I was sorry to have missed meeting more of the group. Instead, the mid-afternoon rainstorms, much like Florida's, forced us inside to work with the students on organizing and editing images in the computer. I mages that are created only have value if they can be accessed and found later with an easy to navigate filing system. After going over those basics and a few Photoshop and Lightroom skills to make the images pop, it was clear to see their understanding of these new concepts was making a difference in their workflow as photographers. This time together ended up being the highlight of this journey second only to the family style meals we shared. While several groups were working on the computers, another was setting up a gallery of framed images made by the students for an upcoming showcase of their work. "F or four years now I have dreamed of creating a tour where photographers could come and shoot alongside our kids and explore N icaragua in unison, with the idea of an equal colearning experience," said K athy Adams, EI founder and executive director.

Up to 13 potters can throw bowls at one time in the museum's ceramics studio, and although they are all crafting bowls, each potter is as unique as their creations. Ma r ia Sparsis has been working with clay for six y ears and enjoys the handson nature of the 3-D art form. "I have always loved art and up until clay I couldn't find anything that I could do with any competency," Ms. Sparsis said with a smile. "I decided to try and signed up at the museum for classes and I've been doing them ever since," she said. The clay used by the potters is stoneware and once thrown, trimmed, fired, glazed and fired again, they are food-safe and dishwasher safe, Ms. Sparsis said. When the bowls are completed and the big soup event begins, individuals can buy bowls at $10 each r egardless if they purchase a cup of soup. G lazing, or the coloring process of the bowls, begins S ept. 5. F or more information about the Samaritan Center, visit www.samaritancentervero.org.

He also claimed to be working for America's Most Wanted," and investigating crooked cops. Employees of the shop became suspicious after he r efused to provide identification. They asked him to leave and when he wouldn't, they called Vero Beach police. He kept insisting to police he was a DEA agent, but changed his story to say he worked for the Indian River County Sheriff's Office.

Re: Leaving the Treasure CoastI was blown away by the Viewpoint letter "Leaving the Tr easure Coast," printed on Aug. 24. I wish the writer only the best of luck in all future endeavors and congratulate them for moving out of this area and moving on with their life. Wake up, people! Everything that was written is true. Only, it is actually worse than what was written and worse than what most people know or believe possible. T en years ago, my husband and I moved to the Treasure C oast. Since living here, we have had experiences that we re r eal-life nightmares. The worst offenders are the people in power. I personally saw this first hand from a high-security job I held, but unfortunately cannot elabor ate, or the repercussions would be unbearable. I cannot live through that again, nor do I think they would allow me to. W ebster defines a bigot as: A person obstinately and unreasonably wedded to a particular opinion, party, religion, etc., and bitterly intolerant of those who believe differently. In other words, if you aren't from the south and proudly own a Confederate flag, or aren't a Republican, or aren't white, or you happen to be a college educated professional, you are not like "The Powers That Be" on the Tr easure Coast, and therefore you are a threat and they hate you! They want you out of their tiny, tiny world built upon bribes and payoffs, and they will push and push until you must relocate to preserve your way-of-life and y our own sanity. My husband and I will also be leaving the Treasure C oast. We have experienced more bigotry, more prejudice, more medical and dental incompetency, more hatred, and more dishonesty then we ever imagined could exist in this country in this day and age. The natural beauty found on the Treasure Coast is over-shadowed by the ugliness of its people. FYI: We are a white, hard-working, middle-aged, college educated couple from the northeast. Surprised? Don't be we're not like them and I thank God we're not!Must love dogsThese days, seem that almost everyone has a dog. I am not a dog hater by any means, but do not have a dog due to the responsibility that come with dog ownership. Normally, in my neighborhood, you will see people walking dogs at any given time. That being said, my yard is not a toilet for your dogs. My yard is private property, and is w ell maintained by me. We like to keep it that way. Rarely do I see any dog owners with a plastic bag, or any means to pick up after the dogs. I guess they think it's ok to let someone else pick up after the dog leaves refuse on someone's lawn. It's not ok, and I have no problem to tell people to keep their dogs off of our property. Dogs also don't belong in grocery stores, restaurants or any other public place. Just because you love your dog and think it's the cutest thing on earth, doesn't mean everyone else does.No smooth sailingF or some parents and students, the first day of school was not a smooth one. I am voicing my opinion on behalf of several students at a local elementary school and their concerned, frustrated parents, who on the first day of school, had to find out that their usual school bus stop of eight years has been cancelled, taken off the route and not being available any longer. Parents are angry and upset and don't think that their children should be walking to school. The sudden change in the bus transportation system is causing a lot of frustration and confusion. In response to many of my phone calls to the transportation department, I have been told different variations of why the bus stop has been cancelled. Responses varied from "Not our concern"; "two mile radius" to "budget cuts." H onestly, it very sad that there is less state money available for our schools and the reality is now trickling down to school buses/routes/stops. Is this the future of our school, our country? I have further received answers concerning the safety of all our students." How much safety can the school system assure when some of our children, age ranges 6-10, are forced to walk to school and/or back home along a busy street, and in a matter of fact, have to cross that street in order to get to and from school and back to their homes. Who will be held responsible if something happen? Would it be the parents' fault for not being able to drop off or pick up their children from school? Would it be the schools' fault for not providing adequate, safe transportation? Many parents feel that the district is putting students' safety at risk by forcing kids to walk in areas that don't have sidewalks or adequate crosswalks. The most upsetting, however is, that the current bus route passes by the bus stop and only needs to make one simple turn. How much money can the school district really save by cutting off one single turn? The families affected by this decision have been greatly impacted in their daily lives and routines, costing them lots of wasted time, extra money and changes in work schedules. Most of the parents have relied on the bus for three y ears or longer. The change in the transportation system proves again how much our educational system is failing in so many aspects. Thanks to budget cuts on the wrong ends. C utting off our children's bus stop is simply the craziest way I have heard of for the state and school district to save money. I am disgusted. State and local school systems should really weigh in the factors of safety for all students. In r esponse to the superintendent's statement that "it was a great first day and everything was well-organized," this may be true to some students and parents. It has, however, left many others angry, frustrated and upset. I am very much concerned about our children's safety, their wellbeing and their future in a school system where it seems that cutting off money from the budget is the first priority ov er safety, security and responsibility. The ones who are negatively impacted by it are truly our children. It is sad but true. Thank you U.S. Education Department. What comes next?Romney's viewsM itt Romney believes that his business background is excellent preparation for creating jobs. Pr esident Obama believes that more government will help create jobs. If that were true, we've had more government (much more government) over the past four years. We've had no significant job recovery over the past four years. A pparently our president has been able to save only one job his own.P ower hungry presidentAmericans, hopefully, are starting to recognize the need to supervise the bureaucrats and politicians. For far too long, they have been grabbing the power to supervise us. They seize every example of what they call "market failure" and use it to expand government laws, demands, mandates, rules and regulations. President Obama is a painful example of a power hungry politician. The power of effectively supervising government varies inversely with government size. Voters beware!Irresponsible governmentU nder President Obama's weak leadership, our nation's future position in the world is threatened. Our standard of living, our national security and even our domestic tranquility have been put at risk. Irresponsible government spending is the cause. Unbelievably, federal liabilities are growing at a rate of $10 million every minute! All this under President Obama's watch. We have a boy doing a man's job.Obama must goIt is difficult to comprehend how any American could be undecided about this year's election. It is a clear decision, a referendum on president Obama's philosophy and his performance over the past four years. This country will either go down the path of big taxes and big government or we will reverse course and move to get Washington out of our lives. Anyone who fails to grasp the choice must not be paying attention. If we v alue our freedoms, Obama must go.T oo many handoutsWhile we work hard and try to pay our own way for our families, too many Americans seem to be on the take. The Got something to say?

It's a topic that everybody knows about, yet most of us are guilty of not taking it seriously enough. And those of us who do take it seriously are often doing it wrong. What is it that I'm writing about this week? If you guessed backing up your computer, you guessed rig ht! Over the years, I know I have touched on this subject a number of times, but what has prompted me to touch on it again is the other half of the equation that never seems to get any attention. Y ou see, so much time is spent on how important having a backup is, how to perform the backup or what needs to be included in the backup, that the equally important subject of how to restore the backup gets neglected. Then, when disaster strikes and people have to go restore from backup, the r ecovery steps they are following (if any) often don't work. A lot of the backup software that's out there makes assumptions about the backup/recovery situation that don't necessarily fit your situation. Then the steps don't make any sense and you're left feeling lost. He re is a for instance: One backup utility that I know of makes the assumption that the computer itself is intact but the data itself became lost or corrupt. Then, the recovery steps make suggestions such as "double click the r estore icon on your desktop, "which makes no sense if you are restoring after a hard drive crash or r eplacing a computer." Another example involves "ghosting" or "imaging" software. This backup concept is that if you regularly image (or ghost) your machine, then recovering from hard drive disaster is a snap. Just r e-image a new hard drive and all of your data and settings are restored exactly as they were right before disaster struck. B ut what happens if the disaster isn't with the hard drive, but with the motherboard? What if you are simply trying to move all of y our data and settings to an altogether new machine? U sually, trying to restore backup data from an image disk only works if the computer that is being reimaged has exactly the same hardware as the machine that is being r eplaced. If you can get the image to load at all (on different hardware) you usually end up with a ton of driver issues and other things that have to be cleaned up. I had one frustrated computer user ask me r ecently, "What good is having the backup running every night if it still costs time and money to have someone come out to r estore it?" I'll answer that here. B acking up your data is a necessary chore. Without a backup running regularly, when you do have a disaster (whether it's a hard drive crash or some other catastrophic failure) then switching to a new machine is easy, if starting with no data is OK with you. B ut what if you would like your new machine to have all your stuff in it? W ouldn't it be nice if your new machine (or hard drive) had all of your documents in your "my documents" folder? W ouldn't you like your new machine to have all of your favorites, contacts and other data that you've acquired over the years? W ouldn't it be nice to have all of that back? W ell, all that stuff has to be restored and the new machine "tweaked" until it matches the way you had it as close as possible.

Pregnant women urged to protect against West NileTREASURE COAST W omen's Health Specialists is urging women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant to take extra vigilance in protecting themselves from the West N ile virus during the curr ent national outbreak of the virus. Pr eventive measures are r ecommended during mosquito season or any time there is a West Nile virus outbreak. The best way to avoid contracting the West Nile virus is to protect yourself against mosquito bites. M osquitoes are most active at dawn and dusk, so extra vigilance is required at these times," said Pedro J. Cr uz, MD, FACOG, Women's H ealth Specialists. While outdoors, long pants and long sleeves will minimize skin exposure and the chances of being bitten by a mosquito carrying West Nile virus. Applying permethrin to clothing (not skin) can further r educe the risk of insect bites. Pregnant women should consult their personal physician before using any insect repellant on their skin," said Dr. Cruz. M ost people who are bitten by mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus show no symptoms. However, symptoms that may be displayed include headache, high fever, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, and paralysis. No specific treatment for W est Nile virus exists, and the consequences for West N ile virus infection during pregnancy have not been w ell defined. F or these reasons, screening of asymptomatic pregnant women for West Nile virus infection is not recommended. In one confirmed case in the U.S., a mother passed W est Nile virus to her unborn baby and in that case, the child was born with serious medical problems. "I n that particular case, it is not known whether the problems were caused by W est Nile or by other factors. Since the evidence shows it is possible to pass W est Nile virus to an unborn child, pregnant women should take immediate steps to reduce their r isk of mosquito bites. If the virus illness is diagnosed during pregnancy, a detailed ultrasound examination of the fetus to evaluate for structural abnormalities should be considered no sooner than two to four w eeks after onset of West N ile virus illness in the mother, unless earlier examination is otherwise indicated," said Dr. Cruz. F or nearly 40 years, W omen's Health Specialists' highly regarded and modern OB/GYN practice has provided a full range of healthcare services to women through all stages of their lives, through puberty, child-bearing ages, and menopause and beyond. W omen's Health Specialists' headquarters is located at 3498 N.W. Federal Highway in Jensen Beach.

Since the last update, things have really started to change in the tropics. During the months of June and July, most of the activity had been centered with systems forming close to home. In other words, the storms were born in close proximity to the coastline. S torms of this nature usually do not have enough time to get wound up because they are born so close to land. In A ugust, things begin to make a dramatic change. One look at a satellite loop of Africa will detail an ample supply of thunderstorms and waves moving across the continent toward the A tlantic. The parade is constant and the waves that have the most convection are the most likely candidates to be our next named system. Some will survive, and others might encounter things like vertical wind shear and/or dry air from S aharan Dust and will simply fizzle out like a dud firecracker. The ones that survive can often create a lot of anxiety, as we track them across the ocean. S torms that form far out in the Atlantic are often r eferred to as "long-trackers" or "Cape Verde storms." These cyclones will often take a week or longer to make their track across the ocean. These are the most feared of all storms. Cape Ve r de storms have a nasty r eputation of gaining strength rapidly and sometimes blossoming into C ategory 4 or 5 hurricanes. Fo r tunately, a certain percentage of these systems will recurve out to sea before making landfall. Often times, that recurve comes way too close for comfort. A good example was Hurricane Floyd, which created the largest evacuation in peacetime history. O ther times, we are not so lucky. Hurricanes tend to be steered by high pressure r idges, which are present every summer. As troughs move across the northern U nited States, a weakness will develop in the ridge that will allow the storm to r ecurve to the north. If that w eakness develops near y our location, you are going to get a hurricane. In addition, sometimes the leading edge of a ridge will drape right across the center of Florida. This was the case in 2004. Both Fr ances and Jeanne were steered into us by a highpressure ridge that was draped across our region almost all summer. If this scenario develops, you become a central target for almost every bullet that is shot at you. Another factor that can influence storms is whether we are under the influence of El Nino, a warming of the ocean off the coast of South America, or La Nina, a cooling of the waters one or the other condition occurring every four to 12 y ears. Right now, we are in ENSO neutral, which means that neither is playing a part in our weather. This was also the case in 2004 when F lorida was hit from almost every angle possible. So far, we have been protected by both a ridge and by dry air, vertical shear and a high-pressure ridge. This ridge is helping to keep storms well to our south. This has been the case for Ernesto, Florence and D epression 7. I expect these conditions to change as the month progresses, and we must all be ready when it does. As I have said many times before, be sure you have a plan and a hurricane kit ready. Be prepared, and be safe. F or more information and tropical updates, visit us at http://www.hometownw eather.net. Remember Frances and Jeanne? STORM TRACKERJOE ZELENAK Photo cortesy of Don VossDon Voss, the recent recipient of the national Ocean Heroes Award, looks over some of debris he and his crew of volunteers removed from the Indian River Lagoon recently.Local man honored with national awardTREASURE COAST More than a decade ago, he retired here to the Treasure Coast to r elax and "feel the sand between his toes." B ut his passion for the envir onment found Don Voss a second career, as well as national recognition when he r eceived the Ocean Heroes A ward in July. "I t is quite exciting," Mr. V oss said. "I was overwhelmed at the number of people who voted for me. Anytime you can get recognition for what you do, it's a big deal." What Mr. Voss does is clean up marine debris in the Indian River Lagoon, a job he has been very busy at for 11 years. The Ocean Heroes Award r ecognizes people who are dedicated to the protection of local waterways. It is awarded by O ceana, an international advocacy group working to protect the world's oceans. Mr., Voss received his award at a ceremony in Virginia. "I moved to Fort Pierce 14 y ears ago to retire," he said. "I'd been a SCUBA diver since 1971, and I credit diving and snorkeling for saving my life." A war injury he received in V ietnam had doctors thinking he would have increasing difficulty walking, but was able to heal by being almost weightless in the water for hours at a time. B ut while he was in the water, he realized the need for cleanup in the waterways. "M y first cleanup dive was in the Sebastian Inlet," he said. When I got out of the water that day I started Marine Cleanup Initiative." S ince that time, the underwater cleanup organization has brought in more than 300,000 pounds of trash out the Indian River Lagoon and the area waterways. The first official cleanup, we had six people and collected more than 6,300 pounds of debris," he said. "We've been doing it every year, and only skipped the year the hurricanes hit." While in the early years, his small team brought up a variety of old debris, now he operates with a volunteer team of more than 400 people. This crew offers their free time, using their own equipment at their own expense, w eek after week," he said. They do it to make our oceans and waterways better." Ev en businesses help his cause. For example, Dive Od yssea in Fort Pierce has contributed by refilling the air tanks Mr. Voss' crew and volunt eers for free. No wadays, he sees some things have changed, but others remain the same. The debris is less than in y ears past," he said. "And we 'v e gotten past bringing up the old stuff." B ut what he still encounters saddens him. "N ow one-third of the debris is bottles and cans, which means people are deliberately littering," he said. "Another third is plastics from fishing lines and nets. The rest is varied: lawn chairs, batteries. This is people just being ignorant." "O ceana is proud to shine a light on his hard work, knowing t hat his efforts are helping us achieve a healthy o cean," said Andrew Sharpless, the CEO of Oceana. Looking ahead, Mr. Voss said he is going to use the r ecognition as a way to educate others. "P eople need to understand that this is an ecosystem and everything affects the next thing," he said. This is where we live and make our living. Put your trash in a bag and dispose of it properly, and be resp onsible. By Dawn Krebsdkrebs@hometownnewsol.com

One of the newest diners in Sebastian is located in the inside corner of the R oseland Plaza. Although it is partially hidden from view at first, customers that try them once usually come back for seconds. The restaurant space itself is open and very clean, in terms of both sanitation and dŽcor. F ood themed framed art on the wall doesn't scream for attention, but provides a visually appealing topic of conversation around the dinner table. Though the name Coney I sland would suggest an emphasis on hot dogs, the diner has a much more versatile menu that captures both breakfast and lunch customers. R estaurant hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday through Saturday and because breakfast is served throughout the day, it doesn't matter if you're craving French toast at the crack of dawn or the crack of noon. An order of French toast comes with three full, thick slices of bread. The large plate is topped with freshly chosen fruit, such as strawberries and blueberries, and sprinkled with powdered sugar and dressed with a dollop of whipped cream. The rich flavor of the toast and fruit is so full, syrup isn't even necessary. S ugary goodness only goes so far and sometimes a meaty sandwich is what will hit the spot. JD's club sandwich and Fr ench fries are a match made in heaven. The fries are seasoned with a special house mixture of spices and add a kick to what normally is considered a nondescript side order. The club sandwich can be served toasted and comes as a towering sandwich with three slices of the bread of your choice. I nstead of piling on razor thin slices of turkey and ham, the sandwich has hefty slices of meat that will satisfy anyone for a full lunch or the leftov ers work well as a snack for later in the day. The diner, owned by Jay R aper and Damon Collins, opened in March. The menu is constantly being improved upon and will offer consistently good meals at an affordable price.

Hello smart shoppers. Gone camping yet? With the economy the way it is, you lucky people who have campers are just about the only ones who can take a v acation. I've come up with a few r ecipes that are a cinch to make while camping. You can get pretty tired of the usual fare: burgers, hot dogs, chicken and steak. K ids love to be able to eat their dinner with a spoon. What's for dessert? How about whoopie pies? Years ago, when we lived in C onnecticut, we had them while visiting friends. Whoopie pies are the best tasting cake/cookie on the planet. I got the r ecipe and it became a family favorite. I've seen different recipes in magazines, but none compare with the original. This is a great dessert; just make the cookies and filling at home, then assemble them at the camp site. M M E E XI XI C C AN AN F F I I E E ST ST A A (N (N I I B) B) ser ser ves 4 ves 4 This recipe is an original; and great for camping.

LUCIE COUNTY Br ight futures await 23 highly skilled graduates of the Pow er Plant Technology Institute developed by Indian River State College and Florida Power & Light Company in partnership with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. At the July 31 graduation ceremony, Bob Hughes, FP&L S t. Lucie nuclear power plant general manager, officially hired 18 students, presenting them with letters of employment and their first FPL hard hats. Three of the students will be the first program graduates to be hired by FP&L for careers in the transmission and substation department, working in the construction and operation of the infrastructure needed to distribute electricity. FP&L also recognized five graduates currently employed at the St. Lucie nuclear power plant who enhanced their skills through the program. The graduates of the twoy ear program received a comprehensive education in power plant operations and technologies, gaining handson experience through a paid summer internship at the St. L ucie nuclear power plant and earning associate in applied science degrees. The new hires will begin their jobs this summer with full-time positions at FPL's St. L ucie nuclear power plant at competitive salaries with attractive benefits packages. W ith the support of grants from the Nuclear Regulatory C ommission, Department of Energy and National Science F oundation, the program is designed to support workforce development and r espond to the growing energy need on the Treasure Coast for employees trained in the latest energy technologies. S ince the programs' inception five years ago, 99 graduates have been hired by FPL. S tudents in the program choose to major in one of five areas: instrumentation and controls, electrical maintenance, mechanical maintenance, radiological protection and the new specialization in transmission and substation.
