Piper announces new partnershipINDIAN RIVER COUNTY After 75 years, Piper Aircraft is still building its customer base and creating new fans of its aircraft. Dur ing the 75th anniversary celebration of Pipers beginnings earlier this month, administrators announced a partnership with the F lorida Institute of Technology in M elbourne called the Piper Aviation Career Alliance. The program will provide education and enhanced vocation opportunities for graduates of Florida Te chs aviation courses. The fivey ear agreement will include a fleet of Piper aircraft for training, Piper internships, career interviews and mentoring, a press release said. N ext year, the schools college of aeronautics will receive eight single-engine Piper Archer TX training planes. These planes will be among the first Piper training aircraft to be equipped with the Gar min G1000 glass panel avionics suite, an integrated flight instrument system.

Du ri ng the Nov. 6 meeting, fellow commissioners and members of the public alternately roasted and commended, with both laughter and tears, the r etiring Mr. Wheeler on his 22 years of public service in Indian River County. Mr. Wheeler served as I ndian River County sheriff from 1992-2000, county commissioner from 198692 and again from 2004-12. H is successor, Tim Zorc, will officially take office on Nov. 20.

tionship with Mr. Wheeler and spoke highly of him during the meeting, literally. In one of the more humorous, yet nonetheless heartfelt, speeches and thanks, Mr. Poppell stood on a stool to congratulate Mr. Wheeler on his retirement and thank him for his service. Dr awing lots of laughs for his prop and his desire to finally look Mr. Wheeler in the eye, Mr. Poppells comments were perfectly aligned with what many other speakers said about his integrity, open-mindedness and fairness. I v e always found Gary to be the kind of guy that even if we disagreed, it never interfered with whatever else we needed to do, Mr. P oppell said. H is professional manner on the dais and commitment to hearing differing sides of an issue were frequently mentioned. C ommissioner Davis said while they may not have always been on the same side of a policy decision, his decisions to engage in discussions and share his wisdom made for a wonderful r ide on the commission. He also thanked Mr. Wheelers family, specifically his wife, Donna, for their sacrifices while Mr. Wheeler was in politics. Thank you for sharing y our husband with Indian River County for the last 22 y ears, C ommissioner Davis said. C ommissioner Peter OBryan said Mr. Wheeler set the standard when it comes to conducting business meetings and allowing public input. C ommissioner OBryan r ead a long list of Mr. Wheelers involvements in the community, starting with his old doughnut shop, T asty-O, and his accomplishments as sheriff. Mr. Wheeler is credited with starting the citizens academy, a class for the public to learn more about the operations of the sheriffs office. To date, there have been 39 classes held with 1,950 residents participating. C ounty administrator Joe B aird called Mr. Wheeler, one of the best county commissioners I have ever seen in my career. Car ol Johnson, Indian River School Board member, called Mr. Wheeler a strong, gentle man and said his impact on the community will be long lasting. P enny Chandler, director of the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce, said Mr. Wheelers help and influence in retaining Piper Aircraft was one of the things the chamber will, and the community should, always be grateful to him for. H undreds of jobs stayed in Indian River County, in part, because of his efforts to help keep Piper, she said. Mr. Wheeler humbly thanked all of those who spoke and those who helped him behind the scenes during the years. Though he has been preparing to leave for some time, now that the time was actually here, it was very difficult, he said. B eing trusted by so many people to carry out the business of the county is overwhelming and he will miss this place that he has called home for 40 years. I t s a whole lot easier to take criticism than compliments, Mr. Wheeler said. He likened the sendoff accolades to what he has imagined people saying at his funeral, earning some laughs. He thanked the sitting commissioners for their cooperation and discourse during his most recent terms. This has been overall the best board Ive been on, Mr. Wheeler said.

Ms. Schnee bought the just more than 10-acres to help protect the family of scrub jays that live there but nearly all of the slash and sand pine trees need to be removed. Ms. Schnee is looking for volunteers again this year. File photo jay habitat for the birds by cutting down surplus sand and slash pines. The pine needles dropped from the pine trees cover the soft, white sugar sand scrub jays use to hide food for the winter, Ms. Schnee said. The trees also have a tendency to grow very tall, more than 8 feet, giving scrub jay predators, such as hawks, a better perch to swoop down and grab them, she said. There are two options for the trees once they are cut down: they can be used as small Christmas trees or they can be gathered at a central area and given to the Indian River B ioEnergy Center in Vero B each to be used to generate electricity and fuel, Ms. Schnee said. W e have lots of trees to get rid of and want to work until theyre gone, Ms. Schnee said. Ms. Schnee and others will be on the property working to remove the trees from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 23 through Nov. 25, Nov. 30 through Dec. 2, De c. 7 through Dec. 9 and De c. 14 through Dec. 16.

Photo courtesy of the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County Laughingstock of the country?Once again, Florida and the Treasure Coast have lived up to its reputation as the capital of FloriDUH! Ha vent we learned that counting votes correctly is essential? I mean, weve had how many years to learn? But, no, not us. Its time to kick out the incompetent officials and maybe get some third-graders in there. Im sure theyre more able to count since they have to pass the FCAT to move on. Maybe thats what we need for those officials who have royally screwed up the election. Test their ability to count.Be an educated voterI am in favor of uneducated Americans being tested before they are eligible to vote. My friend asked me, "What does secular mean?" I did my best to explain after the election, he had already voted. Sorry, too late now. I am very concerned that we will become a nation that will be secularized like they are in Europe. It means that man will believe in his own salvation and will reject the supernatural by a so-called new right during the 1980s. S ecularism is a belief that education, morality and the state should be independent of religion. To be secular would be to transfer from the control or use of the church to that of the state. I believe now more than ever we need to base our country on the values our forefathers built our country on in the past. I am sure you remember the pledge and Lord's Prayer in grade school and for those parents who were too busy, the teacher filled our hearts with pride; pride to produce not be entitled. Entitlement creates laziness. I visited a man from the UK and he is very disappointed in socialized medicine. Europe is bordering bankruptcy, experiencing riots and in need of more bailouts. The government of Europe is run by socialist misfits. In four years we are headed to a communist state. We must not let this happen educate our children with pride for the U.S. (T oo bad campaign money was not spent on the devastation of Hurricane Sandy up north.) In response to Land of rednecksI have to ask the writer, do you know any the people you labeled as rednecks? I am from the north, as many are who live here, and I have seen the same if not worse from northerners be it in Florida or up north. Let's try not to label everyone.Same opportunities?Hmm, interesting how we elect the same president. Welcome to a socialist/Marxist government. For the people who ever-so-blindly voted for Obama, have you ever heard of no taxation without representation. Of course not. The only thing you were most were interested in was what are we getting for free? Well, when your food stamp doesnt buy you much thats the repercussions of it. Now I go to the library and see people of many nationalities. However, when I hear the black community complaining about how they dont get opportunities, well they're not going to go far in life when all they do is go to the library and get onto all the social websites, Facebook, or download music. Yeah, youre making real opportunity come to you. How would I know this? I see it quite a bit as I inhabit the libraries myself. These people dont want to apply themselves, but just cry because they dont want to acknowledge their own truth, theyre flat out lazy. Why do I take the time to write this? maybe because I might strike a chord to one of these parasites. Well enough said. Hope these people realize what a drain they are to the economy, and that goes for the second and third generation baby factories who have kids to pay for their wellbeing as well. When I see a young gal with two or three kids in tow you know dang well she has a welfare career going. God I wish our governor would cut them off from producing.In response to, Does it matter who wins? from Nov. 9I have unfairly received unwelcome glares and hurtful comments from strangers in public as a result of such angry, prejudiced sentiment. I appear as if I'm in my early 20s and have a toddler and a school-age boy out of wedlock. But, I actually earned my bachelors degree, married and then had my two children. My husband divorced me after 10 years of marr iage, which made money tighter. This writer could benefit from such a life lesson, a bad experience, financially. I don't know how he could handle it, since he puts so much importance on his ability to earn money. I suggest he consider spending less time with angry people and more time on introspect and Bible teachings. He does have one thing right, though. It doesn't matter who wins. Whoever wins, which in this case is Obama, we need to come together as Americans to support, not judge, and label fellow Americans as "kids having kids," "lazy with entitlement mentality" and "freeloaders" who only pay attention to "stupidity, commercials and reality shows."Use your librariesF or these all too-young mothers with their welfare kids: later on in life tell your kids, if you dont want them out to the streets before then, the way things go. Ya'll kick them to the streets when theyre 13-14 years old, old enough to breed. Anyhow, the libraries have kids toddler reading programs that enlighten the young ones to story time, teach these kids to learn and not just run to the welfare office. Yes I see these young mothers come into the library and go straight to the computer to get onto Facebook or listen to their socalled music or play video games. Hey, if you look around there are books to actually educate yourself and maybe even learn. Wow, what a concept! Allow me to repeat myself: dont give the excuse you dont get opportunity. O pportunity is abundant in the public library. Too many of y ou just drain the government system of dollars that could be used better and for government workers. I dont know how you sleep at night. Maybe its easy knowing you just have a five-day work week then you can just turn a blind eye. Youre just as much as the problem, as w ell. Someday all this will catch up to these who just dont want to care at the moment and go with the flow. Eventually that flow changes with time. Show support for vetsV eterans often face real challenges as they return to civilian life. It is our obligation and our privilege to assist them. Americans should provide a continuous outpouring of support. More than 40,000 nonprofit organizations focus on helping veterans. Let's all get behind their efforts.Where was Clinton?H illary Clinton was subpoenaed to testify next week before Congress about her involvement with the four Americans' murdered in Benghazi on Sept. 11.She said can't make it.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Windows 8 came out a couple days before Halloween and Ive had a lot of calls from people asking me if they should consider upgrading. In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at Microsoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been released into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to W indows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines r unning the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the r elease of Windows 8 and Im afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the real world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was r eally surprised to find only W indows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me ov er to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that you could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the remaining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none on the floor. And when the ones they have in the back we re gone that was it. No more Windows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around Im not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, thats the real question now isnt it? Until the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we r eally dont know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most r adical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the W indows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with Windows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that weve been using for almost 20 y ears! It s like theyve decided that all machines are tablets now which they most certainly are not. Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and Ill be honest, I wasnt prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that weve come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, its finding them thats the problem. After I successfully completed that call I didNavigating new operating system can be tricky COMP UTE THISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

commission and local hotels, said Tom Colucci, executive director of the Tr easure Coast Sports Commission. W e see the Vero Beach S ports Village as a major sports village destination not only in Indian River County, but also on Floridas Treasure C oast, Mr. Colucci said. S ince 2009, the sports complex has hosted 132 events for a variety of sports and sports levels, including baseball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming and boxing. In 2011 alone, the calculated economic impact was $6.22 million. That number increased to $9.4 million this y ear. There are more economic dollars not accounted for in the report, such as revenue from gas tax and sales tax, but the numbers that are tabulated speak for themselves, he said. Each year sports facility officials increase the amount of events they schedule and draw hundreds, perhaps thousands more to Vero B each and the surrounding area. Str engthening of the sports village business model by adding Peter OMalley, former longtime o wner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and former Dodger pitchers Hideo Nomo and Chan Ho Park to its investors, has given the facility more national and international exposure. Ve ro Beach Sports Village has hosted groups or teams from 35 states, Puerto Rico and six countries. The addition of the youth baseball/softball fields and the multipurpose field for football, soccer and lacrosse players, will only serve to increase programming offered by the sports facility, Mr. Colucci said. W ithout a major or minor league team in residence, the sports facility can offer its accommodations and training areas virtually 365 days a y ear. M ore events and more ov ernight stays mean more tourist dollars, he said. The total number of trackable room nights since 2009 because of the sports facility are at 43,233. This is a conservative number because during spring training, when many college and high school teams come and go, the actual number of ov ernight stays by friends and family of the players is difficult to track, the report said. Of the total room nights, 65 percent were at Vero B each Sports Village and 35 percent were at area hotels. The estimated total number of people who have participated or attended an event at the sports facility is estimated to be more than 48,000 since 2009. Each person stays an average of three nights and use local hotels, restaurants, shopping and retail outlets and gas stations. These are usually people who would not have visited Indian River C ounty if not for the sports event. W e feel strongly that there are a percentage of visitors, having been exposed to our beautiful county and all that it has to offer, that will choose to return in the future for a non-sports visit/vacation, the report said. The complex employs 24 full-time and more than 70 part-time or seasonal employees, and has contributed more than $70,000 in in kind donations to 25 county charities.

AMYCOUSINO Nonprofit to receive $25,000 giftINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Florida Power & Light Company plans to make a $25,000 gift to the U nited Way Foundation of I ndian River County, the largest outright gift from a corporate partner the foundation has received to date. The foundation announced a $10M endowment campaign earlier this year. A t FP&L and our parent company, NextEra Energy, we are longtime partners of the United Wa y, and we see the positive impact of that partnership across the state of F lorida, said Eric Silagy, FPL president. FPL and its employees in the last 10 years have contributed more than $224,000 to the annual campaign in Indian River C ounty and the companys partnership with U nited Way dates much further back. This gift to the foundation is a way for FP&L to help build a permanent endowment that will grow ov er time and serve as a continuous stream of r esources for years to come. Each year, the annual campaign generates muchneeded funding thats immediately deployed in support of 42 programs at United Ways 32 partner agencies in the county. It also helps support U nited Way initiatives such as FamilyWize prescription assistance and the voluntary income tax assistance programs. U nited Way manages an emergency/crisis and special projects fund and a disaster relief fund, poised as the countys emergency support function and designed to play a significant role when a hurricane strikes the community. U nited Way is engaged in a number of different collaborative partnerships all designed to address priority issues in I ndian River County, such as mental health and thirdgrade literacy. Worki ng with corporate partners and individual donors, the United Way F oundation of Indian River County, led by a separate board of directors with highly specialized skill sets and organized as a supporting organization to the United Way of Indian River County, seeks to build the endowment by $10M in the next five y ears through a combination of outright and planned gifts. P lanned gifts include testamentary gifts, such as including the foundation in ones will and gifts of life insurance. The foundation currently has $2.6M in assets and almost $800,000 in deferred commitments made to date.

The You Tube videos just werent going to cut it this time around. Im happy to say that I can indeed support the new system. When people call for support I know how to walk them through getting connected to me quickly and thats 90 percent of the battle. Once Im connected I can help people learn the new system, find what they are looking for and get their problems solved.

One of the greatest joys of the holiday season is the colorful Christmas cactus. These majestic plants come in a variety of colors including red, white, pink, magenta, yellow and orange. These plants are a popular commodity at most retail outlets during the holidays and usually will sell out fast. The individual flowers can add a burst of color to your dcor for a week or more, while a single plants blooming cycle can continue for a month or more. Christmas cacti, or schlumbergera russelliana, are not true cacti so they will not tolerate totally dry conditions for long periods of time. These plants are native to Br azil and normally grow up in the trees and thrive on organic materials such as mold and rotting leaves. S ince they enjoy the shade of the tropical forest, they will not tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These plants can last for many years under the r ight conditions and with a little TLC. When the plants mature, the leaves tend to form a cascading burst of color that looks great in a hanging basket. You can also easily propagate the plants by taking cuttings and planting them directly in a high quality potting soil that is light in texture. Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in an indoor home atmosphere. They have a great ability top withstand cool temperatures and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it is for these plants to grow, it will take a little extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that are their trademark. One important factor in the flowering process is to start allowing the soil to dry out between watering cycles as winter approaches. It is also very important to place the plants in an area that will have less than 12 hours of natural or artificial light for at least six weeks. Also, it is important to keep the temperature cool during this process. Once you have y our flowers started, you can r esume your normal watering schedule along with your normal room temperatures. As you can see, with a little TLC and some special care, y ou can have beautiful flowering Christmas cacti y ear after year without the cost of having to replace your plants every year. If you buy poinsettias for the holidays, one of the most common pest problems you might encounter is the whitefly. If you shake the leaves of the plant and you see little white specs flying around the plant, your poinsettia is infested with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very hard to control but with this quick tip, you can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can use a handheld vacuum to get rid of these pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant (carefully) with one hand while you vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweeping motion around the plant. This process can also be used for other houseplants that might acquire these pests. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

S he was born in New York City moving to Sebastian 20 years ago. S he is survived by her husband of 65 years, Joseph; two daughters, Patricia and Elizabeth; a sister, Iris; a brother, Oliver; two son-in-laws, Karl and Joseph and three grandsons, Christopher, Patrick and Connor. Arr angements by Strunk Funeral Home & Crematory.Cliff Partlow /staff photographerVictor Plumbo of Sebastian walks the sea wall at Wabasso Causeway Park in hopes of pulling in a big one recently. This time of year many of us travel to see family and friends, or just get away from said family and friends. If yo u re heading somewhere that doesnt have snow on the ground, there may be a chance that youre ta king your clubs. After all, whats a holiday without a round or three of golf? There is also the chance that you may leave the sticks at home and rent a set at the course. This is always a good idea if the thought of you playing golf while with the family on a holiday trip isnt likely to be met with unbridled enthusiasm by the family. The last time I went to visit family and rented a set, I was a little less than excited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasnt expecting a $1,000 set of r ental clubs, I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pretty good driver, a model from about a halfdecade ago. The fairway woods were one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The grips must have been original as they we re as hard as my head and slick as ice. The irons we re a mixed-match of three or four different brands and two of the w edges were the same loft. The putter came from a miniature golf course. You know, the ones with the plastic heads. Only five or six of the clubs in this set had grips that I could actually hold onto. I should have suspected something was up when the course only charged me $5 to rent them. S omewhere on the front nine I decided that no matter how hard it was, the next time I traveled and intended to play golf, my trusty sticks were coming with me. A friend of mine who listened to my rant about the clubs I rented had a simple solution. If youre driving, take all the clubs out of your bag and place them in the trunk or back of the van. If necessary, bring only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my driver, putter, a wedge, a hybrid and four irons. I shook my head at how stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time. If you actually have the r oom, packing your clubs can be a breeze. Just use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when youre flying to your destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible. Many seasoned golf travelers have a light carry bag, one that fits easily into their travel bag. Make sure that the travel bag is easily identifiable. When shopping for a travel cover, look for one that has room for that extra long driver, your shoes, a sweater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes. The airlines will no longer allow you to lock your checked bags, so take a thorough inventory of whats in the bag. T ake your golf balls out of your bag and pack them in your suitcase. This saves a tremendous amount of w eight. To trim even more, leave the balls at home and buy them when you get to the course. To prevent your clubs from clanking and scratching, wrap your towels around the heads and put the rain cover on. To help protect that extra-long driver, cut a broom handle down to about two inches longer than your driver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pressure on the broom handle and not y our precious clubs. Cut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to cover the end so that the handle wont rip through the bag. While waiting for your luggage in the baggage claim area, find out where the oversized bags are unloaded. Bags that are too big for the carousels are often brought out separately and staged in a different area. If yo u re renting a car, look around for the rental counters when you get to the baggage claim area. M ost travelers retrieve their luggage and then head for the rental car counters, which tend to get busy all at once. Its a good idea to consider getting your car first. Chances are the line will be shorter and its a lot better than watching strange luggage go around and around and around. Whatever you do when traveling, be sure to call the course first if you are depending on them for clubs to play your round with. Golf is difficult enough without having to use equipment thats impossible to play with.

Du ri ng the Nov. 6 meeting, fellow commissioners and members of the public alternately roasted and commended, with both laughter and tears, the r etiring Mr. Wheeler on his 22 years of public service in Indian River County. Mr. Wheeler served as I ndian River County sheriff from 1992-2000, county commissioner from 198692 and again from 2004-12. H is successor, Tim Zorc, will officially take office on Nov. 20.

tionship with Mr. Wheeler and spoke highly of him during the meeting, literally. In one of the more humorous, yet nonetheless heartfelt, speeches and thanks, Mr. Poppell stood on a stool to congratulate Mr. Wheeler on his retirement and thank him for his service. Dr awing lots of laughs for his prop and his desire to finally look Mr. Wheeler in the eye, Mr. Poppells comments were perfectly aligned with what many other speakers said about his integrity, open-mindedness and fairness. I v e always found Gary to be the kind of guy that even if we disagreed, it never interfered with whatever else we needed to do, Mr. P oppell said. H is professional manner on the dais and commitment to hearing differing sides of an issue were frequently mentioned. C ommissioner Davis said while they may not have always been on the same side of a policy decision, his decisions to engage in discussions and share his wisdom made for a wonderful r ide on the commission. He also thanked Mr. Wheelers family, specifically his wife, Donna, for their sacrifices while Mr. Wheeler was in politics. Thank you for sharing y our husband with Indian River County for the last 22 y ears, C ommissioner Davis said. C ommissioner Peter OBryan said Mr. Wheeler set the standard when it comes to conducting business meetings and allowing public input. C ommissioner OBryan r ead a long list of Mr. Wheelers involvements in the community, starting with his old doughnut shop, T asty-O, and his accomplishments as sheriff. Mr. Wheeler is credited with starting the citizens academy, a class for the public to learn more about the operations of the sheriffs office. To date, there have been 39 classes held with 1,950 residents participating. C ounty administrator Joe B aird called Mr. Wheeler, one of the best county commissioners I have ever seen in my career. Car ol Johnson, Indian River School Board member, called Mr. Wheeler a strong, gentle man and said his impact on the community will be long lasting. P enny Chandler, director of the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce, said Mr. Wheelers help and influence in retaining Piper Aircraft was one of the things the chamber will, and the community should, always be grateful to him for. H undreds of jobs stayed in Indian River County, in part, because of his efforts to help keep Piper, she said. Mr. Wheeler humbly thanked all of those who spoke and those who helped him behind the scenes during the years. Though he has been preparing to leave for some time, now that the time was actually here, it was very difficult, he said. B eing trusted by so many people to carry out the business of the county is overwhelming and he will miss this place that he has called home for 40 years. I t s a whole lot easier to take criticism than compliments, Mr. Wheeler said. He likened the sendoff accolades to what he has imagined people saying at his funeral, earning some laughs.

Ms. Schnee bought the just more than 10-acres to help protect the family of scrub jays that live there but nearly all of the slash and sand pine trees need to be removed. Ms. Schnee is looking for volunteers again this year. File photo jay habitat for the birds by cutting down surplus sand and slash pines. The pine needles dropped from the pine trees cover the soft, white sugar sand scrub jays use to hide food for the winter, Ms. Schnee said. The trees also have a tendency to grow very tall, more than 8 feet, giving scrub jay predators, such as hawks, a better perch to swoop down and grab them, she said. There are two options for the trees once they are cut down: they can be used as small Christmas trees or they can be gathered at a central area and given to the Indian River B ioEnergy Center in Vero B each to be used to generate electricity and fuel, Ms. Schnee said. W e have lots of trees to get rid of and want to work until theyre gone, Ms. Schnee said. Ms. Schnee and others will be on the property working to remove the trees from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 23 through Nov. 25, Nov. 30 through Dec. 2, De c. 7 through Dec. 9 and De c. 14 through Dec. 16.

Photo courtesy of the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County Laughingstock of the country?Once again, Florida and the Treasure Coast have lived up to its reputation as the capital of FloriDUH! Ha vent we learned that counting votes correctly is essential? I mean, weve had how many years to learn? But, no, not us. Its time to kick out the incompetent officials and maybe get some third-graders in there. Im sure theyre more able to count since they have to pass the FCAT to move on. Maybe thats what we need for those officials who have royally screwed up the election. Test their ability to count.Be an educated voterI am in favor of uneducated Americans being tested before they are eligible to vote. My friend asked me, "What does secular mean?" I did my best to explain after the election, he had already voted. Sorry, too late now. I am very concerned that we will become a nation that will be secularized like they are in Europe. It means that man will believe in his own salvation and will reject the supernatural by a so-called new right during the 1980s. S ecularism is a belief that education, morality and the state should be independent of religion. To be secular would be to transfer from the control or use of the church to that of the state. I believe now more than ever we need to base our country on the values our forefathers built our country on in the past. I am sure you remember the pledge and Lord's Prayer in grade school and for those parents who were too busy, the teacher filled our hearts with pride; pride to produce not be entitled. Entitlement creates laziness. I visited a man from the UK and he is very disappointed in socialized medicine. Europe is bordering bankruptcy, experiencing riots and in need of more bailouts. The government of Europe is run by socialist misfits. In four years we are headed to a communist state. We must not let this happen educate our children with pride for the U.S. (T oo bad campaign money was not spent on the devastation of Hurricane Sandy up north.) In response to Land of rednecksI have to ask the writer, do you know any the people you labeled as rednecks? I am from the north, as many are who live here, and I have seen the same if not worse from northerners be it in Florida or up north. Let's try not to label everyone.Same opportunities?Hmm, interesting how we elect the same president. Welcome to a socialist/Marxist government. For the people who ever-so-blindly voted for Obama, have you ever heard of no taxation without representation. Of course not. The only thing you were most were interested in was what are we getting for free? Well, when your food stamp doesnt buy you much thats the repercussions of it. Now I go to the library and see people of many nationalities. However, when I hear the black community complaining about how they dont get opportunities, well they're not going to go far in life when all they do is go to the library and get onto all the social websites, Facebook, or download music. Yeah, youre making real opportunity come to you. How would I know this? I see it quite a bit as I inhabit the libraries myself. These people dont want to apply themselves, but just cry because they dont want to acknowledge their own truth, theyre flat out lazy. Why do I take the time to write this? maybe because I might strike a chord to one of these parasites. Well enough said. Hope these people realize what a drain they are to the economy, and that goes for the second and third generation baby factories who have kids to pay for their wellbeing as well. When I see a young gal with two or three kids in tow you know dang well she has a welfare career going. God I wish our governor would cut them off from producing.In response to, Does it matter who wins? from Nov. 9I have unfairly received unwelcome glares and hurtful comments from strangers in public as a result of such angry, prejudiced sentiment. I appear as if I'm in my early 20s and have a toddler and a school-age boy out of wedlock. But, I actually earned my bachelors degree, married and then had my two children. My husband divorced me after 10 years of marr iage, which made money tighter. This writer could benefit from such a life lesson, a bad experience, financially. I don't know how he could handle it, since he puts so much importance on his ability to earn money. I suggest he consider spending less time with angry people and more time on introspect and Bible teachings. He does have one thing right, though. It doesn't matter who wins. Whoever wins, which in this case is Obama, we need to come together as Americans to support, not judge, and label fellow Americans as "kids having kids," "lazy with entitlement mentality" and "freeloaders" who only pay attention to "stupidity, commercials and reality shows."Use your librariesF or these all too-young mothers with their welfare kids: later on in life tell your kids, if you dont want them out to the streets before then, the way things go. Ya'll kick them to the streets when theyre 13-14 years old, old enough to breed. Anyhow, the libraries have kids toddler reading programs that enlighten the young ones to story time, teach these kids to learn and not just run to the welfare office. Yes I see these young mothers come into the library and go straight to the computer to get onto Facebook or listen to their socalled music or play video games. Hey, if you look around there are books to actually educate yourself and maybe even learn. Wow, what a concept! Allow me to repeat myself: dont give the excuse you dont get opportunity. O pportunity is abundant in the public library. Too many of y ou just drain the government system of dollars that could be used better and for government workers. I dont know how you sleep at night. Maybe its easy knowing you just have a five-day work week then you can just turn a blind eye. Youre just as much as the problem, as w ell. Someday all this will catch up to these who just dont want to care at the moment and go with the flow. Eventually that flow changes with time. Show support for vetsV eterans often face real challenges as they return to civilian life. It is our obligation and our privilege to assist them. Americans should provide a continuous outpouring of support. More than 40,000 nonprofit organizations focus on helping veterans. Let's all get behind their efforts.Where was Clinton?H illary Clinton was subpoenaed to testify next week before Congress about her involvement with the four Americans' murdered in Benghazi on Sept. 11.She said can't make it. If you are ever subpoenaed into court and don't want to go, just follow her lead. Just say it is not convenient, that y ou will be out of town. See if that works for the regular public or just for the crooks running the country. Editors note: H illary Clinton has not been subpoenaed to testify before Congress,though that idea is being proposed by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,House Foreign Affairs Committee chairwoman.At press time,Secretary Clinton was on a previously scheduled visit to Australia.Sluggish economy hurtsLowand middle-income blacks and Latinos are hurt disproportionately by a sluggish economy, which can be r evived by less government spending, fewer mandates, fewer rules and regulations and lower taxes. These people desperately need someone to care, to focus on their communities and explain the facts of life to them. Too bad our public schools fail to teach these truths anymore. Our republic suffers and the less fortunate suffer from the peoples' ignorance. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or email news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Windows 8 came out a couple days before Halloween and Ive had a lot of calls from people asking me if they should consider upgrading. In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at Microsoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been released into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to W indows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines r unning the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the r elease of Windows 8 and Im afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the real world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was r eally surprised to find only W indows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me ov er to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that you could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the remaining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none on the floor. And when the ones they have in the back we re gone that was it. No more Windows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around Im not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, thats the real question now isnt it? Until the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we r eally dont know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most r adical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the W indows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with Windows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that weve been using for almost 20 y ears! It s like theyve decided that all machines are tablets now which they most certainly are not. Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and Ill be honest, I wasnt prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that weve come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, its finding them thats the problem. After I successfully completed that call I didNavigating new operating system can be tricky COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

commission and local hotels, said Tom Colucci, executive director of the Tr easure Coast Sports Commission. W e see the Vero Beach S ports Village as a major sports village destination not only in Indian River County, but also on Floridas Treasure C oast, Mr. Colucci said. S ince 2009, the sports complex has hosted 132 events for a variety of sports and sports levels, including baseball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming and boxing. In 2011 alone, the calculated economic impact was $6.22 million. That number increased to $9.4 million this y ear. There are more economic dollars not accounted for in the report, such as revenue from gas tax and sales tax, but the numbers that are tabulated speak for themselves, he said. Each year sports facility officials increase the amount of events they schedule and draw hundreds, perhaps thousands more to Vero B each and the surrounding area. Str engthening of the sports village business model by adding Peter OMalley, former longtime o wner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and former Dodger pitchers Hideo Nomo and Chan Ho Park to its investors, has given the facility more national and international exposure. Ve ro Beach Sports Village has hosted groups or teams from 35 states, Puerto Rico and six countries. The addition of the youth baseball/softball fields and the multipurpose field for football, soccer and lacrosse players, will only serve to increase programming offered by the sports facility, Mr. Colucci said. W ithout a major or minor league team in residence, the sports facility can offer its accommodations and training areas virtually 365 days a y ear. M ore events and more ov ernight stays mean more tourist dollars, he said. The total number of trackable room nights since 2009 because of the sports facility are at 43,233. This is a conservative number because during spring training, when many college and high school teams come and go, the actual number of ov ernight stays by friends and family of the players is difficult to track, the report said. Of the total room nights, 65 percent were at Vero B each Sports Village and 35 percent were at area hotels. The estimated total number of people who have participated or attended an event at the sports facility is estimated to be more than 48,000 since 2009. Each person stays an average of three nights and use local hotels, restaurants, shopping and retail outlets and gas stations. These are usually people who would not have visited Indian River C ounty if not for the sports event. W e feel strongly that there are a percentage of visitors, having been exposed to our beautiful county and all that it has to offer, that will choose to return in the future for a non-sports visit/vacation, the report said. The complex employs 24 full-time and more than 70 part-time or seasonal employees, and has contributed more than $70,000 in in kind donations to 25 county charities.

AMYCOUSINO Nonprofit to receive $25,000 giftINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Florida Power & Light Company plans to make a $25,000 gift to the U nited Way Foundation of I ndian River County, the largest outright gift from a corporate partner the foundation has received to date. The foundation announced a $10M endowment campaign earlier this year. A t FP&L and our parent company, NextEra Energy, we are longtime partners of the United Wa y, and we see the positive impact of that partnership across the state of F lorida, said Eric Silagy, FPL president. FPL and its employees in the last 10 years have contributed more than $224,000 to the annual campaign in Indian River C ounty and the companys partnership with U nited Way dates much further back. This gift to the foundation is a way for FP&L to help build a permanent endowment that will grow ov er time and serve as a continuous stream of r esources for years to come. Each year, the annual campaign generates muchneeded funding thats immediately deployed in support of 42 programs at United Ways 32 partner agencies in the county. It also helps support U nited Way initiatives such as FamilyWize prescription assistance and the voluntary income tax assistance programs. U nited Way manages an emergency/crisis and special projects fund and a disaster relief fund, poised as the countys emergency support function and designed to play a significant role when a hurricane strikes the community. U nited Way is engaged in a number of different collaborative partnerships all designed to address priority issues in I ndian River County, such as mental health and thirdgrade literacy. Worki ng with corporate partners and individual donors, the United Way F oundation of Indian River County, led by a separate board of directors with highly specialized skill sets and organized as a supporting organization to the United Way of Indian River County, seeks to build the endowment by $10M in the next five y ears through a combination of outright and planned gifts. P lanned gifts include testamentary gifts, such as including the foundation in ones will and gifts of life insurance. The foundation currently has $2.6M in assets and almost $800,000 in deferred commitments made to date.

The You Tube videos just werent going to cut it this time around. Im happy to say that I can indeed support the new system. When people call for support I know how to walk them through getting connected to me quickly and thats 90 percent of the battle. Once Im connected I can help people learn the new system, find what they are looking for and get their problems solved. And so far so good, aside from the missing start button the system seems lightning fast and pretty stable. I just hope no serious gotchas pop up this early in the game.

One of the greatest joys of the holiday season is the colorful Christmas cactus. These majestic plants come in a variety of colors including red, white, pink, magenta, yellow and orange. These plants are a popular commodity at most retail outlets during the holidays and usually will sell out fast. The individual flowers can add a burst of color to your dcor for a week or more, while a single plants blooming cycle can continue for a month or more. Christmas cacti, or schlumbergera russelliana, are not true cacti so they will not tolerate totally dry conditions for long periods of time. These plants are native to Br azil and normally grow up in the trees and thrive on organic materials such as mold and rotting leaves. S ince they enjoy the shade of the tropical forest, they will not tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These plants can last for many years under the r ight conditions and with a little TLC. When the plants mature, the leaves tend to form a cascading burst of color that looks great in a hanging basket. You can also easily propagate the plants by taking cuttings and planting them directly in a high quality potting soil that is light in texture. Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in an indoor home atmosphere. They have a great ability top withstand cool temperatures and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it is for these plants to grow, it will take a little extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that are their trademark. One important factor in the flowering process is to start allowing the soil to dry out between watering cycles as winter approaches. It is also very important to place the plants in an area that will have less than 12 hours of natural or artificial light for at least six weeks. Also, it is important to keep the temperature cool during this process. Once you have y our flowers started, you can r esume your normal watering schedule along with your normal room temperatures. As you can see, with a little TLC and some special care, y ou can have beautiful flowering Christmas cacti y ear after year without the cost of having to replace your plants every year. If you buy poinsettias for the holidays, one of the most common pest problems you might encounter is the whitefly. If you shake the leaves of the plant and you see little white specs flying around the plant, your poinsettia is infested with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very hard to control but with this quick tip, you can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can use a handheld vacuum to get rid of these pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant (carefully) with one hand while you vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweeping motion around the plant. This process can also be used for other houseplants that might acquire these pests. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

S he was born in New York City moving to Sebastian 20 years ago. S he is survived by her husband of 65 years, Joseph; two daughters, Patricia and Elizabeth; a sister, Iris; a brother, Oliver; two son-in-laws, Karl and Joseph and three grandsons, Christopher, Patrick and Connor. Arr angements by Strunk Funeral Home & Crematory.Cliff Partlow /staff photographerVictor Plumbo of Sebastian walks the sea wall at Wabasso Causeway Park in hopes of pulling in a big one recently. This time of year many of us travel to see family and friends, or just get away from said family and friends. If yo u re heading somewhere that doesnt have snow on the ground, there may be a chance that youre ta king your clubs. After all, whats a holiday without a round or three of golf? There is also the chance that you may leave the sticks at home and rent a set at the course. This is always a good idea if the thought of you playing golf while with the family on a holiday trip isnt likely to be met with unbridled enthusiasm by the family. The last time I went to visit family and rented a set, I was a little less than excited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasnt expecting a $1,000 set of r ental clubs, I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pretty good driver, a model from about a halfdecade ago. The fairway woods were one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The grips must have been original as they we re as hard as my head and slick as ice. The irons we re a mixed-match of three or four different brands and two of the w edges were the same loft. The putter came from a miniature golf course. You know, the ones with the plastic heads. Only five or six of the clubs in this set had grips that I could actually hold onto. I should have suspected something was up when the course only charged me $5 to rent them. S omewhere on the front nine I decided that no matter how hard it was, the next time I traveled and intended to play golf, my trusty sticks were coming with me. A friend of mine who listened to my rant about the clubs I rented had a simple solution. If youre driving, take all the clubs out of your bag and place them in the trunk or back of the van. If necessary, bring only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my driver, putter, a wedge, a hybrid and four irons. I shook my head at how stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time. If you actually have the r oom, packing your clubs can be a breeze. Just use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when youre flying to your destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible. Many seasoned golf travelers have a light carry bag, one that fits easily into their travel bag. Make sure that the travel bag is easily identifiable. When shopping for a travel cover, look for one that has room for that extra long driver, your shoes, a sweater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes. The airlines will no longer allow you to lock your checked bags, so take a thorough inventory of whats in the bag. T ake your golf balls out of your bag and pack them in your suitcase. This saves a tremendous amount of w eight. To trim even more, leave the balls at home and buy them when you get to the course. To prevent your clubs from clanking and scratching, wrap your towels around the heads and put the rain cover on. To help protect that extra-long driver, cut a broom handle down to about two inches longer than your driver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pressure on the broom handle and not y our precious clubs. Cut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to cover the end so that the handle wont rip through the bag. While waiting for your luggage in the baggage claim area, find out where the oversized bags are unloaded. Bags that are too big for the carousels are often brought out separately and staged in a different area. If yo u re renting a car, look around for the rental counters when you get to the baggage claim area. M ost travelers retrieve their luggage and then head for the rental car counters, which tend to get busy all at once. Its a good idea to consider getting your car first. Chances are the line will be shorter and its a lot better than watching strange luggage go around and around and around. Whatever you do when traveling, be sure to call the course first if you are depending on them for clubs to play your round with. Golf is difficult enough without having to use equipment thats impossible to play with.

Website: www.literacyser vicesirc.org. Holiday calendar INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The spirit of giving that accompanies Christmastime can travel far from the family hearth this year with a care package for those in the military. The Military Moms Prayer Groups pet project Holidays for Heroes is underway for the seventh consecutive y ear and donations to the cause are being accepted. M aking military servicemen and women who serve overseas feel closer to home during the holiday season is the ultimate goal with the project, but an amazing byproduct is the joy people can get from giving the gifts, not to mention the excitement that comes when a soldier writes a thank you note or visits in person, said Lynn Mar ie Saint-Vincent, program coordinator. M ilitary Moms has 19 names on its mailing list, but expect to send more than 2,000 packages because the troops share the packages they r eceive with their fellow service members. They also welcome more names from Indian River County residents. I have two sons in the military, A ustin in the Navy and Brice in the Air Fo rce. They are the reason I feel so strongly about the project, Ms. SaintV incent said. The No. 1 mission of Military Moms is to pray together about the safety of their sons, daughters, family members and friends while serving in the military, no matter what religious denomination, but helping troops feel closer to home is the secondary mission. There are three ways to join with M ilitary Moms and share Christmas with the troops: purchase and mail items as an individual, drop off the items for Military Moms to package and send out or purchase a patriotic pin. The boxes are a large flat-rate box. Theyre not that big, about a shoebox and a half, Ms. Saint-Vincent said.

Website: www.literacyser vicesirc.org. Holiday calendar INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The spirit of giving that accompanies Christmastime can travel far from the family hearth this year with a care package for those in the military. The Military Moms Prayer Groups pet project Holidays for Heroes is underway for the seventh consecutive y ear and donations to the cause are being accepted. M aking military servicemen and women who serve overseas feel closer to home during the holiday season is the ultimate goal with the project, but an amazing byproduct is the joy people can get from giving the gifts, not to mention the excitement that comes when a soldier writes a thank you note or visits in person, said Lynn Mar ie Saint-Vincent, program coordinator. M ilitary Moms has 19 names on its mailing list, but expect to send more than 2,000 packages because the troops share the packages they r eceive with their fellow service members. They also welcome more names from Indian River County residents. I have two sons in the military, A ustin in the Navy and Brice in the Air Fo rce. They are the reason I feel so strongly about the project, Ms. SaintV incent said. The No. 1 mission of Military Moms is to pray together about the safety of their sons, daughters, family members and friends while serving in the military, no matter what religious denomination, but helping troops feel closer to home is the secondary mission. There are three ways to join with M ilitary Moms and share Christmas with the troops: purchase and mail items as an individual, drop off the items for Military Moms to package and send out or purchase a patriotic pin. The boxes are a large flat-rate box. Theyre not that big, about a shoebox and a half, Ms. Saint-Vincent said.

tionship with Mr. Wheeler and spoke highly of him during the meeting, literally. In one of the more humorous, yet nonetheless heartfelt, speeches and thanks, Mr. Poppell stood on a stool to congratulate Mr. Wheeler on his retirement and thank him for his service. Dr awing lots of laughs for his prop and his desire to finally look Mr. Wheeler in the eye, Mr. Poppells comments were perfectly aligned with what many other speakers said about his integrity, open-mindedness and fairness. I v e always found Gary to be the kind of guy that even if we disagreed, it never interfered with whatever else we needed to do, Mr. P oppell said. H is professional manner on the dais and commitment to hearing differing sides of an issue were frequently mentioned. C ommissioner Davis said while they may not have always been on the same side of a policy decision, his decisions to engage in discussions and share his wisdom made for a wonderful r ide on the commission. He also thanked Mr. Wheelers family, specifically his wife, Donna, for their sacrifices while Mr. Wheeler was in politics. Thank you for sharing y our husband with Indian River County for the last 22 y ears, C ommissioner Davis said. C ommissioner Peter OBryan said Mr. Wheeler set the standard when it comes to conducting business meetings and allowing public input. C ommissioner OBryan r ead a long list of Mr. Wheelers involvements in the community, starting with his old doughnut shop, T asty-O, and his accomplishments as sheriff. Mr. Wheeler is credited with starting the citizens academy, a class for the public to learn more about the operations of the sheriffs office. To date, there have been 39 classes held with 1,950 residents participating. C ounty administrator Joe B aird called Mr. Wheeler, one of the best county commissioners I have ever seen in my career. Car ol Johnson, Indian River School Board member, called Mr. Wheeler a strong, gentle man and said his impact on the community will be long lasting. P enny Chandler, director of the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce, said Mr. Wheelers help and influence in retaining Piper Aircraft was one of the things the chamber will, and the community should, always be grateful to him for. H undreds of jobs stayed in Indian River County, in part, because of his efforts to help keep Piper, she said. Mr. Wheeler humbly thanked all of those who spoke and those who helped him behind the scenes during the years. Though he has been preparing to leave for some time, now that the time was actually here, it was very difficult, he said. B eing trusted by so many people to carry out the business of the county is overwhelming and he will miss this place that he has called home for 40 years. I t s a whole lot easier to take criticism than compliments, Mr. Wheeler said. He likened the sendoff accolades to what he has imagined people saying at his funeral, earning some laughs. He thanked the sitting commissioners for their cooperation and discourse during his most recent terms. This has been overall the best board Ive been on, Mr. Wheeler said.

The pine needles dropped from the pine trees cover the soft, white sugar sand scrub jays use to hide food for the winter, Ms. Schnee said. The trees also have a tendency to grow very tall, more than 8 feet, giving scrub jay predators, such as hawks, a better perch to swoop down and grab them, she said. There are two options for the trees once they are cut down: they can be used as small Christmas trees or they can be gathered at a central area and given to the Indian River B ioEnergy Center in Vero B each to be used to generate electricity and fuel, Ms. Schnee said.

Photo courtesy of the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County Laughingstock of the country?Once again, Florida and the Treasure Coast have lived up to its reputation as the capital of FloriDUH! Ha vent we learned that counting votes correctly is essential? I mean, weve had how many years to learn? But, no, not us. Its time to kick out the incompetent officials and maybe get some third-graders in there. Im sure theyre more able to count since they have to pass the FCAT to move on. Maybe thats what we need for those officials who have royally screwed up the election. Test their ability to count.Be an educated voterI am in favor of uneducated Americans being tested before they are eligible to vote. My friend asked me, "What does secular mean?" I did my best to explain after the election, he had already voted. Sorry, too late now. I am very concerned that we will become a nation that will be secularized like they are in Europe. It means that man will believe in his own salvation and will reject the supernatural by a so-called new right during the 1980s. S ecularism is a belief that education, morality and the state should be independent of religion. To be secular would be to transfer from the control or use of the church to that of the state. I believe now more than ever we need to base our country on the values our forefathers built our country on in the past. I am sure you remember the pledge and Lord's Prayer in grade school and for those parents who were too busy, the teacher filled our hearts with pride; pride to produce not be entitled. Entitlement creates laziness. I visited a man from the UK and he is very disappointed in socialized medicine. Europe is bordering bankruptcy, experiencing riots and in need of more bailouts. The government of Europe is run by socialist misfits. In four years we are headed to a communist state. We must not let this happen educate our children with pride for the U.S. (T oo bad campaign money was not spent on the devastation of Hurricane Sandy up north.) In response to Land of rednecksI have to ask the writer, do you know any the people you labeled as rednecks? I am from the north, as many are who live here, and I have seen the same if not worse from northerners be it in Florida or up north. Let's try not to label everyone.Same opportunities?Hmm, interesting how we elect the same president. Welcome to a socialist/Marxist government. For the people who ever-so-blindly voted for Obama, have you ever heard of no taxation without representation. Of course not. The only thing you were most were interested in was what are we getting for free? Well, when your food stamp doesnt buy you much thats the repercussions of it. Now I go to the library and see people of many nationalities. However, when I hear the black community complaining about how they dont get opportunities, well they're not going to go far in life when all they do is go to the library and get onto all the social websites, Facebook, or download music. Yeah, youre making real opportunity come to you. How would I know this? I see it quite a bit as I inhabit the libraries myself. These people dont want to apply themselves, but just cry because they dont want to acknowledge their own truth, theyre flat out lazy. Why do I take the time to write this? maybe because I might strike a chord to one of these parasites. Well enough said. Hope these people realize what a drain they are to the economy, and that goes for the second and third generation baby factories who have kids to pay for their wellbeing as well. When I see a young gal with two or three kids in tow you know dang well she has a welfare career going. God I wish our governor would cut them off from producing.In response to, Does it matter who wins? from Nov. 9I have unfairly received unwelcome glares and hurtful comments from strangers in public as a result of such angry, prejudiced sentiment. I appear as if I'm in my early 20s and have a toddler and a school-age boy out of wedlock. But, I actually earned my bachelors degree, married and then had my two children. My husband divorced me after 10 years of marr iage, which made money tighter. This writer could benefit from such a life lesson, a bad experience, financially. I don't know how he could handle it, since he puts so much importance on his ability to earn money. I suggest he consider spending less time with angry people and more time on introspect and Bible teachings. He does have one thing right, though. It doesn't matter who wins. Whoever wins, which in this case is Obama, we need to come together as Americans to support, not judge, and label fellow Americans as "kids having kids," "lazy with entitlement mentality" and "freeloaders" who only pay attention to "stupidity, commercials and reality shows."Use your librariesF or these all too-young mothers with their welfare kids: later on in life tell your kids, if you dont want them out to the streets before then, the way things go. Ya'll kick them to the streets when theyre 13-14 years old, old enough to breed. Anyhow, the libraries have kids toddler reading programs that enlighten the young ones to story time, teach these kids to learn and not just run to the welfare office. Yes I see these young mothers come into the library and go straight to the computer to get onto Facebook or listen to their socalled music or play video games. Hey, if you look around there are books to actually educate yourself and maybe even learn. Wow, what a concept! Allow me to repeat myself: dont give the excuse you dont get opportunity. O pportunity is abundant in the public library. Too many of y ou just drain the government system of dollars that could be used better and for government workers. I dont know how you sleep at night. Maybe its easy knowing you just have a five-day work week then you can just turn a blind eye. Youre just as much as the problem, as w ell. Someday all this will catch up to these who just dont want to care at the moment and go with the flow. Eventually that flow changes with time. Show support for vetsV eterans often face real challenges as they return to civilian life. It is our obligation and our privilege to assist them. Americans should provide a continuous outpouring of support. More than 40,000 nonprofit organizations focus on helping veterans. Let's all get behind their efforts.Where was Clinton?H illary Clinton was subpoenaed to testify next week before Congress about her involvement with the four Americans' murdered in Benghazi on Sept. 11.She said can't make it. If you are ever subpoenaed into court and don't want to go, just follow her lead. Just say it is not convenient, that y ou will be out of town. See if that works for the regular public or just for the crooks running the country. Editors note: H illary Clinton has not been subpoenaed to testify before Congress,though that idea is being proposed by Ileana Ros-Lehtinen,House Foreign Affairs Committee chairwoman.At press time,Secretary Clinton was on a previously scheduled visit to Australia.Sluggish economy hurtsLowand middle-income blacks and Latinos are hurt disproportionately by a sluggish economy, which can be r evived by less government spending, fewer mandates, fewer rules and regulations and lower taxes. These people desperately need someone to care, to focus on their communities and explain the facts of life to them. Too bad our public schools fail to teach these truths anymore. Our republic suffers and the less fortunate suffer from the peoples' ignorance. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or email news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Windows 8 came out a couple days before Halloween and Ive had a lot of calls from people asking me if they should consider upgrading. In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at Microsoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been released into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to W indows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines r unning the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the r elease of Windows 8 and Im afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the real world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was r eally surprised to find only W indows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me ov er to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that you could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the remaining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none on the floor. And when the ones they have in the back we re gone that was it. No more Windows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around Im not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, thats the real question now isnt it? Until the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we r eally dont know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most r adical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the W indows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with Windows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that weve been using for almost 20 y ears! It s like theyve decided that all machines are tablets now which they most certainly are not. Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and Ill be honest, I wasnt prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that weve come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, its finding them thats the problem. After I successfully completed that call I didNavigating new operating system can be tricky COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

commission and local hotels, said Tom Colucci, executive director of the Tr easure Coast Sports Commission. W e see the Vero Beach S ports Village as a major sports village destination not only in Indian River County, but also on Floridas Treasure C oast, Mr. Colucci said. S ince 2009, the sports complex has hosted 132 events for a variety of sports and sports levels, including baseball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming and boxing. In 2011 alone, the calculated economic impact was $6.22 million. That number increased to $9.4 million this y ear. There are more economic dollars not accounted for in the report, such as revenue from gas tax and sales tax, but the numbers that are tabulated speak for themselves, he said. Each year sports facility officials increase the amount of events they schedule and draw hundreds, perhaps thousands more to Vero B each and the surrounding area. Str engthening of the sports village business model by adding Peter OMalley, former longtime o wner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and former Dodger pitchers Hideo Nomo and Chan Ho Park to its investors, has given the facility more national and international exposure. Ve ro Beach Sports Village has hosted groups or teams from 35 states, Puerto Rico and six countries. The addition of the youth baseball/softball fields and the multipurpose field for football, soccer and lacrosse players, will only serve to increase programming offered by the sports facility, Mr. Colucci said. W ithout a major or minor league team in residence, the sports facility can offer its accommodations and training areas virtually 365 days a y ear. M ore events and more ov ernight stays mean more tourist dollars, he said. The total number of trackable room nights since 2009 because of the sports facility are at 43,233. This is a conservative number because during spring training, when many college and high school teams come and go, the actual number of ov ernight stays by friends and family of the players is difficult to track, the report said. Of the total room nights, 65 percent were at Vero B each Sports Village and 35 percent were at area hotels. The estimated total number of people who have participated or attended an event at the sports facility is estimated to be more than 48,000 since 2009. Each person stays an average of three nights and use local hotels, restaurants, shopping and retail outlets and gas stations. These are usually people who would not have visited Indian River C ounty if not for the sports event. W e feel strongly that there are a percentage of visitors, having been exposed to our beautiful county and all that it has to offer, that will choose to return in the future for a non-sports visit/vacation, the report said. The complex employs 24 full-time and more than 70 part-time or seasonal employees, and has contributed more than $70,000 in in kind donations to 25 county charities.

AMYCOUSINO Nonprofit to receive $25,000 giftINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Florida Power & Light Company plans to make a $25,000 gift to the U nited Way Foundation of I ndian River County, the largest outright gift from a corporate partner the foundation has received to date. The foundation announced a $10M endowment campaign earlier this year. A t FP&L and our parent company, NextEra Energy, we are longtime partners of the United Wa y, and we see the positive impact of that partnership across the state of F lorida, said Eric Silagy, FPL president. FPL and its employees in the last 10 years have contributed more than $224,000 to the annual campaign in Indian River C ounty and the companys partnership with U nited Way dates much further back. This gift to the foundation is a way for FP&L to help build a permanent endowment that will grow ov er time and serve as a continuous stream of r esources for years to come. Each year, the annual campaign generates muchneeded funding thats immediately deployed in support of 42 programs at United Ways 32 partner agencies in the county. It also helps support U nited Way initiatives such as FamilyWize prescription assistance and the voluntary income tax assistance programs. U nited Way manages an emergency/crisis and special projects fund and a disaster relief fund, poised as the countys emergency support function and designed to play a significant role when a hurricane strikes the community. U nited Way is engaged in a number of different collaborative partnerships all designed to address priority issues in I ndian River County, such as mental health and thirdgrade literacy. Worki ng with corporate partners and individual donors, the United Way F oundation of Indian River County, led by a separate board of directors with highly specialized skill sets and organized as a supporting organization to the United Way of Indian River County, seeks to build the endowment by $10M in the next five y ears through a combination of outright and planned gifts. P lanned gifts include testamentary gifts, such as including the foundation in ones will and gifts of life insurance. The foundation currently has $2.6M in assets and almost $800,000 in deferred commitments made to date.

One of the greatest joys of the holiday season is the colorful Christmas cactus. These majestic plants come in a variety of colors including red, white, pink, magenta, yellow and orange. These plants are a popular commodity at most retail outlets during the holidays and usually will sell out fast. The individual flowers can add a burst of color to your dcor for a week or more, while a single plants blooming cycle can continue for a month or more. Christmas cacti, or schlumbergera russelliana, are not true cacti so they will not tolerate totally dry conditions for long periods of time. These plants are native to Br azil and normally grow up in the trees and thrive on organic materials such as mold and rotting leaves. S ince they enjoy the shade of the tropical forest, they will not tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These plants can last for many years under the r ight conditions and with a little TLC. When the plants mature, the leaves tend to form a cascading burst of color that looks great in a hanging basket. You can also easily propagate the plants by taking cuttings and planting them directly in a high quality potting soil that is light in texture. Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in an indoor home atmosphere. They have a great ability top withstand cool temperatures and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it is for these plants to grow, it will take a little extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that are their trademark. One important factor in the flowering process is to start allowing the soil to dry out between watering cycles as winter approaches. It is also very important to place the plants in an area that will have less than 12 hours of natural or artificial light for at least six weeks. Also, it is important to keep the temperature cool during this process. Once you have y our flowers started, you can r esume your normal watering schedule along with your normal room temperatures. As you can see, with a little TLC and some special care, y ou can have beautiful flowering Christmas cacti y ear after year without the cost of having to replace your plants every year. If you buy poinsettias for the holidays, one of the most common pest problems you might encounter is the whitefly. If you shake the leaves of the plant and you see little white specs flying around the plant, your poinsettia is infested with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very hard to control but with this quick tip, you can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can use a handheld vacuum to get rid of these pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant (carefully) with one hand while you vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweeping motion around the plant. This process can also be used for other houseplants that might acquire these pests. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

This is always a good idea if the thought of you playing golf while with the family on a holiday trip isnt likely to be met with unbridled enthusiasm by the family. The last time I went to visit family and rented a set, I was a little less than excited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasnt expecting a $1,000 set of r ental clubs, I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pretty good driver, a model from about a halfdecade ago. The fairway woods were one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The grips must have been original as they we re as hard as my head and slick as ice. The irons we re a mixed-match of three or four different brands and two of the w edges were the same loft. The putter came from a miniature golf course. You know, the ones with the plastic heads. Only five or six of the clubs in this set had grips that I could actually hold onto. I should have suspected something was up when the course only charged me $5 to rent them. S omewhere on the front nine I decided that no matter how hard it was, the next time I traveled and intended to play golf, my trusty sticks were coming with me. A friend of mine who listened to my rant about the clubs I rented had a simple solution. If youre driving, take all the clubs out of your bag and place them in the trunk or back of the van. If necessary, bring only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my driver, putter, a wedge, a hybrid and four irons. I shook my head at how stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time. If you actually have the r oom, packing your clubs can be a breeze. Just use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when youre flying to your destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible. Many seasoned golf travelers have a light carry bag, one that fits easily into their travel bag. Make sure that the travel bag is easily identifiable. When shopping for a travel cover, look for one that has room for that extra long driver, your shoes, a sweater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes. The airlines will no longer allow you to lock your checked bags, so take a thorough inventory of whats in the bag. T ake your golf balls out of your bag and pack them in your suitcase. This saves a tremendous amount of w eight. To trim even more, leave the balls at home and buy them when you get to the course. To prevent your clubs from clanking and scratching, wrap your towels around the heads and put the rain cover on. To help protect that extra-long driver, cut a broom handle down to about two inches longer than your driver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pressure on the broom handle and not y our precious clubs. Cut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to cover the end so that the handle wont rip through the bag. While waiting for your luggage in the baggage claim area, find out where the oversized bags are unloaded. Bags that are too big for the carousels are often brought out separately and staged in a different area. If yo u re renting a car, look around for the rental counters when you get to the baggage claim area. M ost travelers retrieve their luggage and then head for the rental car counters, which tend to get busy all at once. Its a good idea to consider getting your car first. Chances are the line will be shorter and its a lot better than watching strange luggage go around and around and around. Whatever you do when traveling, be sure to call the course first if you are depending on them for clubs to play your round with. Golf is difficult enough without having to use equipment thats impossible to play with.

Du ri ng the Nov. 6 meeting, fellow commissioners and members of the public alternately roasted and commended, with both laughter and tears, the r etiring Mr. Wheeler on his 22 years of public service in Indian River County. Mr. Wheeler served as I ndian River County sheriff from 1992-2000, county commissioner from 198692 and again from 2004-12. H is successor, Tim Zorc, will officially take office on Nov. 20.

tionship with Mr. Wheeler and spoke highly of him during the meeting, literally. In one of the more humorous, yet nonetheless heartfelt, speeches and thanks, Mr. Poppell stood on a stool to congratulate Mr. Wheeler on his retirement and thank him for his service. Dr awing lots of laughs for his prop and his desire to finally look Mr. Wheeler in the eye, Mr. Poppell's comments were perfectly aligned with what many other speakers said about his integrity, open-mindedness and fairness. "I 'v e always found Gary to be the kind of guy that even if we disagreed, it never interfered with whatever else we needed to do," Mr. P oppell said. H is professional manner on the dais and commitment to hearing differing sides of an issue were frequently mentioned. C ommissioner Davis said while they may not have always been on the same side of a policy decision, his decisions to engage in discussions and share his wisdom made for a wonderful r ide on the commission. He also thanked Mr. Wheeler's family, specifically his wife, Donna, for their sacrifices while Mr. Wheeler was in politics. Thank you for sharing y our husband with Indian River County for the last 22 y ears, C ommissioner Davis said. C ommissioner Peter O'Bryan said Mr. Wheeler set the standard when it comes to conducting business meetings and allowing public input. C ommissioner O'Bryan r ead a long list of Mr. Wheeler's involvements in the community, starting with his old doughnut shop, T asty-O, and his accomplishments as sheriff. Mr. Wheeler is credited with starting the citizens academy, a class for the public to learn more about the operations of the sheriff's office. To date, there have been 39 classes held with 1,950 residents participating. C ounty administrator Joe B aird called Mr. Wheeler, one of the best county commissioners I have ever seen in my career." Ca r ol Johnson, Indian River School Board member, called Mr. Wheeler a "strong, gentle man" and said his impact on the community will be long lasting. P enny Chandler, director of the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce, said Mr. Wheeler's help and influence in retaining Piper Aircraft was one of the things the chamber will, and the community should, always be grateful to him for. H undreds of jobs stayed in Indian River County, in part, because of his efforts to help keep Piper, she said. Mr. Wheeler humbly thanked all of those who spoke and those who helped him behind the scenes during the years. Though he has been preparing to leave for some time, now that the time was actually here, it was very difficult, he said. B eing trusted by so many people to carry out the business of the county is overwhelming and he will miss this place that he has called home for 40 years. "I t' s a whole lot easier to take criticism than compliments," Mr. Wheeler said. He likened the sendoff accolades to what he has imagined people saying at his funeral, earning some laughs. He thanked the sitting commissioners for their cooperation and discourse during his most recent terms. This has been overall the best board I've been on," Mr. Wheeler said.

Ms. Schnee bought the just more than 10-acres to help protect the family of scrub jays that live there but nearly all of the slash and sand pine trees need to be removed. Ms. Schnee is looking for volunteers again this year. File photo jay habitat for the birds by cutting down surplus sand and slash pines. The pine needles dropped from the pine trees cover the soft, white sugar" sand scrub jays use to hide food for the winter, Ms. Schnee said. The trees also have a tendency to grow very tall, more than 8 feet, giving scrub jay predators, such as hawks, a better perch to swoop down and grab them, she said. There are two options for the trees once they are cut down: they can be used as small Christmas trees or they can be gathered at a central area and given to the Indian River B ioEnergy Center in Vero B each to be used to generate electricity and fuel, Ms. Schnee said. "W e have lots of trees to get rid of and want to work until they're gone," Ms. Schnee said.

Photo courtesy of the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County Laughingstock of the country?Once again, Florida and the Treasure Coast have lived up to its reputation as the capital of FloriDUH! Ha ven't we learned that counting votes correctly is essential? I mean, we've had how many years to learn? But, no, not us. It's time to kick out the incompetent officials and maybe get some third-graders in there. I'm sure they're more able to count since they have to pass the FCAT to move on. Maybe that's what we need for those officials who have royally screwed up the election. Test their ability to count.Be an educated voterI am in favor of uneducated Americans being tested before they are eligible to vote. My friend asked me, "What does secular mean?" I did my best to explain after the election, he had already voted. Sorry, too late now. I am very concerned that we will become a nation that will be secularized like they are in Europe. It means that man will believe in his own salvation and will reject the supernatural by a so-called new right during the 1980s. S ecularism is a belief that education, morality and the state should be independent of religion. To be secular would be to transfer from the control or use of the church to that of the state. I believe now more than ever we need to base our country on the values our forefathers built our country on in the past. I am sure you remember the pledge and Lord's Prayer in grade school and for those parents who were too busy, the teacher filled our hearts with pride; pride to produce not be entitled. Entitlement creates laziness. I visited a man from the UK and he is very disappointed in socialized medicine. Europe is bordering bankruptcy, experiencing riots and in need of more bailouts. The government of Europe is run by socialist misfits. In four years we are headed to a communist state. We must not let this happen educate our children with pride for the U.S. (T oo bad campaign money was not spent on the devastation of Hurricane Sandy up north.) In response to Land of rednecks'I have to ask the writer, do you know any the people you labeled as rednecks? I am from the north, as many are who live here, and I have seen the same if not worse from northerners be it in Florida or up north. Let's try not to label everyone.Same opportunities?Hmm, interesting how we elect the same president. Welcome to a socialist/Marxist government. For the people who ever-so-blindly voted for Obama, have you ever heard of no taxation without representation. Of course not. The only thing you were most were interested in was what are we getting for free? Well, when your food stamp doesn't buy you much that's the repercussions of it. No w I go to the library and see people of many nationalities. However, when I hear the black community complaining about how they don't get opportunities, well they're not going to go far in life when all they do is go to the library and get onto all the social websites, Facebook, or download music. Yeah, you're making real opportunity come to you. How would I know this? I see it quite a bit as I inhabit the libraries myself. These people don't want to apply themselves, but just cry because they don't want to acknowledge their own truth, they're flat out lazy. Why do I take the time to write this? maybe because I might strike a chord to one of these parasites. Well enough said. Hope these people realize what a drain they are to the economy, and that goes for the second and third generation baby factories who have kids to pay for their wellbeing as well. When I see a young gal with two or three kids in tow you know dang well she has a welfare career going. God I wish our governor would cut them off from producing.In response to, Does it matter who wins?' from Nov. 9I have unfairly received unwelcome glares and hurtful comments from strangers in public as a result of such angry, prejudiced sentiment. I appear as if I'm in my early 20s and have a toddler and a school-age boy out of wedlock. But, I actually earned my bachelor's degree, married and then had my two children. My husband divorced me after 10 years of marr iage, which made money tighter. This writer could benefit from such a life lesson, a bad experience, financially. I don't know how he could handle it, since he puts so much importance on his ability to earn money. I suggest he consider spending less time with angry people and more time on introspect and Bible teachings. He does have one thing right, though. It doesn't matter who wins. Whoever wins, which in this case is Obama, we need to come together as Americans to support, not judge, and label fellow Americans as "kids having kids," "lazy with entitlement mentality" and "freeloaders" who only pay attention to "stupidity, commercials and reality shows."Use your librariesF or these all too-young mothers with their welfare kids: later on in life tell your kids, if you don't want them out to the streets before then, the way things go. Ya'll kick them to the streets when they're 13-14 years old, old enough to breed. Anyhow, the libraries have kids toddler reading programs that enlighten the young ones to story time, teach these kids to learn and not just run to the welfare office. Yes I see these young mothers come into the library and go straight to the computer to get onto Facebook or listen to their socalled music or play video games. Hey, if you look around there are books to actually educate yourself and maybe even learn. Wow, what a concept! Allow me to repeat myself: don't give the excuse you don't get opportunity. O pportunity is abundant in the public library. Too many of y ou just drain the government system of dollars that could be used better and for government workers. I don't know how you sleep at night. Maybe it's easy knowing you just have a five-day work week then you can just turn a blind eye. You're just as much as the problem, as w ell. Someday all this will catch up to these who just don't want to care at the moment and go with the flow. Eventually that flow changes with time. Show support for vetsV eterans often face real challenges as they return to civilian life. It is our obligation and our privilege to assist them. Americans should provide a continuous outpouring of support. More than 40,000 nonprofit organizations focus on helping veterans. Let's all get behind their efforts.Where was Clinton?H illary Clinton was subpoenaed to testify next week before Congress about her involvement with the four Americans' murdered in Benghazi on Sept. 11.She said can't make it. If y ou are ever subpoenaed into court and don't want to go, just follow her lead. Just say it is not convenient, that y ou will be out of town. See if that works for the regular public or just for the crooks running the country. Editor's note: H illary Clinton has not been subpoenaed to testify before Congress,though that idea is being proposed by I leana Ros-Lehtinen,House Foreign Affairs Committee chairwoman.At press time,Secretary Clinton was on a previously scheduled visit to Australia.Sluggish economy hurtsLowand middle-income blacks and Latinos are hurt disproportionately by a sluggish economy, which can be r evived by less government spending, fewer mandates, fewer rules and regulations and lower taxes. These people desperately need someone to care, to focus on their communities and explain the facts of life to them. Too bad our public schools fail to teach these truths anymore. Our republic suffers and the less fortunate suffer from the peoples' ignorance. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or email news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Windows 8 came out a couple days before Halloween and I've had a lot of calls from people asking me if they should consider upgrading. In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at Microsoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been released into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to W indows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines r unning the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the r elease of Windows 8 and I'm afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the real world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was r eally surprised to find only W indows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me ov er to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that you could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the remaining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none "on the floor." And when the ones they have in the back we re gone that was it. No more Windows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around I'm not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, that's the real question now isn't it? Until the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we r eally don't know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most r adical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the W indows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with Windows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that we've been using for almost 20 y ears! It 's like they've decided that all machines are tablets now which they most certainly are not. Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and I'll be honest, I wasn't prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that we've come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, it's finding them that's the problem. After I successfully completed that call I didNavigating new operating system can be tricky COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

commission and local hotels, said Tom Colucci, executive director of the Tr easure Coast Sports Commission. "W e see the Vero Beach S ports Village as a major sports village destination not only in Indian River County, but also on Florida's Treasure C oast," Mr. Colucci said. S ince 2009, the sports complex has hosted 132 events for a variety of sports and sports levels, including baseball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming and boxing. In 2011 alone, the calculated economic impact was $6.22 million. That number increased to $9.4 million this y ear. There are more economic dollars not accounted for in the report, such as revenue from gas tax and sales tax, but the numbers that are tabulated speak for themselves, he said. Each year sports facility officials increase the amount of events they schedule and draw hundreds, perhaps thousands more to Vero B each and the surrounding area. St r engthening of the sports village business model by adding Peter O'Malley, former longtime o wner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and former Dodger pitchers Hideo Nomo and Chan Ho Park to its investors, has given the facility more national and international exposure. Ve ro B each Sports Village has hosted groups or teams from 35 states, Puerto Rico and six countries. The addition of the youth baseball/softball fields and the multipurpose field for football, soccer and lacrosse players, will only serve to increase programming offered by the sports facility, Mr. Colucci said. W ithout a major or minor league team in residence, the sports facility can offer its accommodations and training areas virtually 365 days a y ear. "M ore events and more ov ernight stays mean more tourist dollars," he said. The total number of trackable room nights since 2009 because of the sports facility are at 43,233. This is a conservative number because during spring training, when many college and high school teams come and go, the actual number of ov ernight stays by friends and family of the players is difficult to track, the report said. Of the total room nights, 65 percent were at Vero B each Sports Village and 35 percent were at area hotels. The estimated total number of people who have participated or attended an event at the sports facility is estimated to be more than 48,000 since 2009. Each person stays an average of three nights and use local hotels, restaurants, shopping and retail outlets and gas stations. These are usually people who would not have visited Indian River C ounty if not for the sports event. "W e feel strongly that there are a percentage of visitors, having been exposed to our beautiful county and all that it has to offer, that will choose to return in the future for a non-sports visit/vacation," the report said. The complex employs 24 full-time and more than 70 part-time or seasonal employees, and has contributed more than $70,000 in in kind donations to 25 county charities.

AMYCOUSINO Nonprofit to receive $25,000 giftINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Florida Power & Light Company plans to make a $25,000 gift to the U nited Way Foundation of I ndian River County, the largest outright gift from a corporate partner the foundation has received to date. The foundation announced a $10M endowment campaign earlier this year. "A t FP&L and our parent company, NextEra Energy, we are longtime partners of the United Wa y, and we see the positive impact of that partnership across the state of F lorida," said Eric Silagy, FPL president. FPL and its employees in the last 10 years have contributed more than $224,000 to the annual campaign in Indian River C ounty and the company's partnership with U nited Way dates much further back. This gift to the foundation is a way for FP&L to help build a permanent endowment that will grow ov er time and serve as a continuous stream of r esources for years to come. Each year, the annual campaign generates muchneeded funding that's immediately deployed in support of 42 programs at United Way's 32 partner agencies in the county. It also helps support U nited Way initiatives such as FamilyWize prescription assistance and the voluntary income tax assistance programs. U nited Way manages an emergency/crisis and special projects fund and a disaster relief fund, poised as the county's emergency support function and designed to play a significant role when a hurricane strikes the community. U nited Way is engaged in a number of different collaborative partnerships all designed to address priority issues in I ndian River County, such as mental health and thirdgrade literacy. Worki ng with corporate partners and individual donors, the United Way F oundation of Indian River County, led by a separate board of directors with highly specialized skill sets and organized as a supporting organization to the United Way of Indian River County, seeks to build the endowment by $10M in the next five y ears through a combination of outright and planned gifts. P lanned gifts include testamentary gifts, such as including the foundation in one's will and gifts of life insurance. The foundation currently has $2.6M in assets and almost $800,000 in deferred commitments made to date.

The You Tube videos just weren't going to cut it this time around. I'm happy to say that I can indeed support the new system. When people call for support I know how to walk them through getting connected to me quickly and that's 90 percent of the battle. Once I'm connected I can help people learn the new system, find what they are looking for and get their problems solved. And so far so good, aside from the missing start button the system seems lightning fast and pretty stable. I just hope no serious "gotchas" pop up this early in the game.

One of the greatest joys of the holiday season is the colorful Christmas cactus. These majestic plants come in a variety of colors including red, white, pink, magenta, yellow and orange. These plants are a popular commodity at most retail outlets during the holidays and usually will sell out fast. The individual flowers can add a burst of color to your dŽcor for a week or more, while a single plant's blooming cycle can continue for a month or more. Christmas cacti, or schlumbergera russelliana, are not true cacti so they will not tolerate totally dry conditions for long periods of time. These plants are native to Br azil and normally grow up in the trees and thrive on organic materials such as mold and rotting leaves. S ince they enjoy the shade of the tropical forest, they will not tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These plants can last for many years under the r ight conditions and with a little TLC. When the plants mature, the leaves tend to form a cascading burst of color that looks great in a hanging basket. You can also easily propagate the plants by taking cuttings and planting them directly in a high quality potting soil that is light in texture. Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in an indoor home atmosphere. They have a great ability top withstand cool temperatures and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it is for these plants to grow, it will take a little extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that are their trademark. One important factor in the flowering process is to start allowing the soil to dry out between watering cycles as winter approaches. It is also very important to place the plants in an area that will have less than 12 hours of natural or artificial light for at least six weeks. Also, it is important to keep the temperature cool during this process. Once you have y our flowers started, you can r esume your normal watering schedule along with your normal room temperatures. As you can see, with a little TLC and some special care, y ou can have beautiful flowering Christmas cacti y ear after year without the cost of having to replace your plants every year. If y ou buy poinsettias for the holidays, one of the most common pest problems you might encounter is the whitefly. If you shake the leaves of the plant and you see little white specs flying around the plant, your poinsettia is infested with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very hard to control but with this quick tip, you can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can use a handheld vacuum to get rid of these pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant (carefully) with one hand while you vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweeping motion around the plant. This process can also be used for other houseplants that might acquire these pests. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

S he was born in New York City moving to Sebastian 20 years ago. S he is survived by her husband of 65 years, Joseph; two daughters, Patricia and Elizabeth; a sister, Iris; a brother, Oliver; two son-in-laws, Karl and Joseph and three grandsons, Christopher, Patrick and Connor. Ar r angements by Strunk Funeral Home & Crematory.Cliff Partlow /staff photographerVictor Plumbo of Sebastian walks the sea wall at Wabasso Causeway Park in hopes of pulling in a big one recently. This time of year many of us travel to see family and friends, or just get away from said family and friends. If yo u' re heading somewhere that doesn't have snow on the ground, there may be a chance that you're ta king your clubs. After all, what's a holiday without a round or three of golf? There is also the chance that you may leave the sticks at home and rent a set at the course. This is always a good idea if the thought of you playing golf while with the family on a holiday trip isn't likely to be met with unbridled enthusiasm by the family. The last time I went to visit family and rented a set, I was a little less than excited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasn't expecting a $1,000 set of r ental clubs, I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pretty good driver, a model from about a halfdecade ago. The fairway woods were one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The grips must have been original as they we re as hard as my head and slick as ice. The irons we re a mixed-match of three or four different brands and two of the w edges were the same loft. The putter came from a miniature golf course. You know, the ones with the plastic heads. Only five or six of the clubs in this set had grips that I could actually hold onto. I should have suspected something was up when the course only charged me $5 to rent them. S omewhere on the front nine I decided that no matter how hard it was, the next time I traveled and intended to play golf, my trusty sticks were coming with me. A friend of mine who listened to my rant about the clubs I rented had a simple solution. If you're driving, take all the clubs out of your bag and place them in the trunk or back of the van. If necessary, bring only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my driver, putter, a wedge, a hybrid and four irons. I shook my head at how stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time. If y ou actually have the r oom, packing your clubs can be a breeze. Just use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when you're flying to your destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible. Many seasoned golf travelers have a light carry bag, one that fits easily into their travel bag. Make sure that the travel bag is easily identifiable. When shopping for a travel cover, look for one that has room for that extra long driver, your shoes, a sweater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes. The airlines will no longer allow you to lock your checked bags, so take a thorough inventory of what's in the bag. T ake your golf balls out of your bag and pack them in your suitcase. This saves a tremendous amount of w eight. To trim even more, leave the balls at home and buy them when you get to the course. To prevent your clubs from clanking and scratching, wrap your towels around the heads and put the rain cover on. To help protect that extra-long driver, cut a broom handle down to about two inches longer than your driver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pressure on the broom handle and not y our precious clubs. Cut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to cover the end so that the handle won't rip through the bag. While waiting for your luggage in the baggage claim area, find out where the oversized bags are unloaded. Bags that are too big for the carousels are often brought out separately and staged in a different area. If yo u' re r enting a car, look around for the rental counters when you get to the baggage claim area. M ost travelers retrieve their luggage and then head for the rental car counters, which tend to get busy all at once. It's a good idea to consider getting your car first. Chances are the line will be shorter and it's a lot better than watching strange luggage go around and around and around. Whatever you do when traveling, be sure to call the course first if you are depending on them for clubs to play your round with.

Possibly just enough ornaments Annual angel tree program to help those in need INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Salv ation Armys Angel Tree program provides new toys and clothes for needy area children, as well as gifts for needy senior citizens at Christmas time. F or many, the gifts and clothes they r eceive through the Salvation Armys Angel tree program are the only gifts these children will have to open on Christmas morning.

The tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child who will r eceive the gift. C ontributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase the appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags. The toys are then delivered to the unit and later picked up by the parent to distribute to the child/children on Christmas Day.

Website: www.literacyser vicesirc.org. Holiday calendar INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The spirit of giving that accompanies Christmastime can travel far from the family hearth this year with a care package for those in the military. The Military Moms Prayer Groups pet project Holidays for Heroes is underway for the seventh consecutive y ear and donations to the cause are being accepted. M aking military servicemen and women who serve overseas feel closer to home during the holiday season is the ultimate goal with the project, but an amazing byproduct is the joy people can get from giving the gifts, not to mention the excitement that comes when a soldier writes a thank you note or visits in person, said Lynn Mar ie Saint-Vincent, program coordinator. M ilitary Moms has 19 names on its mailing list, but expect to send more than 2,000 packages because the troops share the packages they r eceive with their fellow service members. They also welcome more names from Indian River County residents. I have two sons in the military, A ustin in the Navy and Brice in the Air Fo rce. They are the reason I feel so strongly about the project, Ms. SaintV incent said. The No. 1 mission of Military Moms is to pray together about the safety of their sons, daughters, family members and friends while serving in the military, no matter what religious denomination, but helping troops feel closer to home is the secondary mission. There are three ways to join with M ilitary Moms and share Christmas with the troops: purchase and mail items as an individual, drop off the items for Military Moms to package and send out or purchase a patriotic pin. The boxes are a large flat-rate box. Theyre not that big, about a shoebox and a half, Ms. Saint-Vincent said.

Website : www.literacyser vicesirc.org. Holiday calendar INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The spirit of giving that accompanies Christmastime can travel far from the family hearth this year with a care package for those in the military. The Military Moms Prayer Group's pet project "Holidays for Heroes" is underway for the seventh consecutive y ear and donations to the cause are being accepted. M aking military servicemen and women who serve overseas feel closer to home during the holiday season is the ultimate goal with the project, but an amazing byproduct is the joy people can get from giving the gifts, not to mention the excitement that comes when a soldier writes a thank you note or visits in person, said Lynn Ma r ie Saint-Vincent, program coordinator. M ilitary Moms has 19 names on its mailing list, but expect to send more than 2,000 packages because the troops share the packages they r eceive with their fellow service members. They also welcome more names from Indian River County residents. "I have two sons in the military, A ustin in the Navy and Brice in the Air Fo rc e. They are the reason I feel so strongly about the project," Ms. SaintV incent said. The No. 1 mission of Military Moms is to pray together about the safety of their sons, daughters, family members and friends while serving in the military, no matter what religious denomination, but helping troops feel closer to home is the secondary mission. There are three ways to join with M ilitary Moms and share Christmas with the troops: purchase and mail items as an individual, drop off the items for Military Moms to package and send out or purchase a patriotic pin. The boxes are a large flat-rate box. They're not that big, about a shoebox and a half," Ms. Saint-Vincent said.
