INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A new option is available for individuals seeking to volunteer at the Humane Society of Ve ro Beach and Indian River County. And all it takes is some basic dog behavior knowledge and a good book. F or some people, curling up with a good book and some blankets is the perfect way to de-stress and relax, and it turns out, it is for some canines, as well. The animal shelter is looking for volunteers to participate in the Read and Relax program, designed to reduce a dogs stress through increased human companionship. T eaching dogs to be calm and spend time being still while around people will be invaluable when trying to find them forever homes, shelter staff said. The old advice given to r educe canine stress was to exercise to exhaustion, that a tired dog is a happy dog, said Joy Szaz, the animal shelters pet behavior assistant in a press release. E xercise is still important, but we know that most dogs enjoy being couch potatoes. Since dogs, especially anxious dogs, usually feel most at ease spending quiet time with people, we need volunteers who are willing to just sit with them in a quiet area and simply r ead, she said. The Humane Society operates because of donations and volunteers, said Janet Winikoff, education director. Howe ver, it does take some modicum of physical ability to do many of the volunteer tasks at the shelter. Reading however, is not one of them, Ms. W inikoff said. When she is at home with her own dog, Nala, she is not always playing tug-of-war or fetch, or INDIAN RIVER COUNTY While the phrase, out with the old, in with the new, is true with physical calendars, the memories of those days gone by will stay forever.

outlive him. L ynn was the sixth woman Mr. Gore confessed to killing, and had she not been seen trying to escape by a witness, more women could possibly have fallen prey to Mr. Gore and his accomplice and cousin, Freddy Waterfield. Mr. Gores death warrant was originally signed in 1988, but it was stayed later that year. Subsequent appeals dragged out the process. Ve ro B each,FP&L negotiations proceed at full steam N egotiations between the city of Vero Beach and Florida Power & Light for the sale of the citys electric utility continued to move forward. The latest news is that in a split vote, Vero Beach City C ouncil members requested the city attorney and city manager to draft language for a referendum to put the question of the sale to city r esidents, and a nonbinding straw poll for all electric utility ratepayers, inside and outside the city limits. The referendum question, if approved by the city council, could appear in a March election. C ouncil members who voted for the referendum made clear they were not putting the question to r atepayers because they felt they had to get permission, but rather to once and for all learn if people wanted to sell or not. S piritual community figurehead dies The spiritual leader of the K ashi Ashram in Sebastian, Ma J aya Sati Bhagavati died on April 13 of pancreatic cancer. Ma J aya was a person who showed love, kindness and compassion to all people, friends and acquaintances said after her death. S ome of her local actions that will leave a long-lasting impression on the community include opening By The River, an affordable senior housing development in S ebastian. A sliding-pay scale helps seniors on a limited income afford housing, keep their independence and not need to live in nursing homes. Fo ur Chaplains monument completed After more than three y ears of fundraising, a new monument was erected in S ebastians Riverview Park. The veterans memorial section of the city park now has an 8-foot granite monument depicting four military chaplains who died during W orld War II when a German torpedo caused the vessel they were on to sink. Ve ro Beach resident Ernie H eaton, one of the last living survivors of that tragedy, lived in Vero Beach and was a driving force behind its construction. The four chaplains, all of different faiths, are known for giving up their life vests and staying onboard the quickly sinking ship, saving lives by their actions and inspiring others through their loud prayers. Mr. Heaton said the monument was promoting interfaith actions. He lived to see its dedication in February and completion in May. He died of cancer in November. Bri dge renamed to honor Ve ro Be achs first lady Ve ro Beachs 17th Street Br idge was dedicated and r enamed for a woman who has proven to be a leader in I ndian River County for more than 40 years. Alma Lee Loy, the first female Indian River County commissioner, a long-time business owner and a community leader, was humbled by the request to recognize her accomplishments by naming the bridge after her. The bridge was one of the major projects she worked on as a commissioner, and opened in 1979.

T alks between Indian River County and Vero B each about the location of the bus hub began earlier this year in response to concerns from residents living around the hub, in the Old To wn neighborhood. On numerous occasions r esidents of the neighborhood took to the podium at Ve ro Beach City Hall to voice their concerns about the traffic, trash and increased number of pedestrians walking on their streets. Moving the hub and building coverings and bathrooms onto a cityo wned property leased to the county had been part of the discussions, but when the city declined to be r esponsible for the landscaping and maintenance of the property once it was leased, the county decided to stop seeking a new place. P hil Matson, metropolitan planning organization director, said the property in question, which is near the r ailroad tracks on 16th Str eet, is already maintained by the city, so such a term was unacceptable to the county. I nstead, the county will attempt to re-apply the grant they were going to use for the construction of the new hub toward outfitting the current hub site with pavilions and bathrooms, Mr. Matson said. W e feel that the site is functioning very well, he said. The main bus hub has been at its current location, the site of the old county administration center, since 2010.

Pr oponents of returning the impact fees also made it known that the process for collecting the fees was arduous and the commission voted to make the process easier and more transparent. Pr oposal for temporary housing for homeless evolves The homeless in Indian River County have advocates working diligently on a way to help them back on their feet and ideas on how to make that happen are coming closer to actual reality. The latest news from the organizers of Camp Haven, a nonprofit group working to develop a temporary housing situation for qualified homeless individuals, is that a foreclosed motel could be their new home. The old Citrus Motel on U.S. 1 near the Vero Beach Airport is the latest property being considered for the temporary housing site, after a tent camp proposal in south county did not appear feasible with readily available funds and expected fundraising efforts. The change came soon after a leadership change in the nonprofit after its founder moved out of state. City,police department sign three-year contract After months of negotiations, the city of Vero Beach and the Vero Beach Police D epartments union signed a three-year contract in O ctober, avoiding an impasse. The contract was hotly debated among residents because the city manager was proposing rank reductions that would have affected nine officers. The final contract did not include rank reductions, but did include fewer holidays, a change to vacation and sick pay accumulation and an increase to the percentage officers must contribute to their pension funds. The city manager proposed the rank reductions to help the city meet its shrinking budget. Pill millcrackdown closes one Vero Beach clinic A lengthy investigation on the Treasure Coast and other parts of Florida on drug trafficking and pain management clinics resulted in the closing of one Vero B each clinic earlier this year. S tuart Pain Management in Vero Beach, operated by Dr Bruce Jay Kammerman of Palm City, was searched this summer by law enforcement after reports of suspicious activity since 2010.

Read and Relax is about getting the dogs to calm down and relax and not feel anxious or constantly need attention, Ms. Winikoff. While there is basic volunteer and dog behavior training, a volunteer can be one-on-one in a room, or in a kennel run with a dog to read. While reading, the volunteer must be careful to not interact with the dog at all, no eye contact, no direct speaking to the animal, she said. When dogs are more accustomed to being calm around people, it is much easier to help them find a home, and once they are in a home, it helps them acclimate faster to their new home environment, Ms. Winikoff said. The next general volunteer orientation session will be held Jan. 5 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. This new program gives more individuals the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of our dogs, Ms. Winikoff said.

The meeting room was packed with people, the majority of whom were not in favor of the planning group. Some audience members waved current and past American flags, including a bright yellow Dont Tread on Me flag, demonstrating their concerns that Seven50 would take away their way of life and community values and impose property r estrictions and higherdensity living in the name of efficiency. F or the past few months, the Treasure Coast and S outh Florida regional planning councils, with the financial backing of the U.S. Department of H ousing and Urban and De velopment, the U.S. D epartment of Transportation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, have been traveling to different locations in the Treasure Coast r egion to lay out a 50-year plan for seven counties in S outheast Florida. The overall idea for the economic development project is called the Seven 50 sustainable communities initiative and is self-described on its website as a blueprint for growing a more prosperous, more desirable Southeast Florida during the next 50 years and beyond. The two regional planning councils are joining together with Southeast F lorida Regional Partnership, a collaboration of more than 200 public, priv ate and civic stakeholders, to map out a strategy for high-quality lifestyles for the future. S ome members of the audience said they believed regional planning as touted by Seven50 was headed down a road that would throw away values I ndian River County residents hold dear: home r ule, low-density, small government and fiscal r esponsibility. O ther members scoffed at the idea that 50-year planning was even feasible as even business plans fluctuate constantly. Also unsettling for residents was the fact that the decision makers were faceless bureaucrats and unelected people. K evin Foley, chairman of the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council and Mar cela Camblor, director of the Seven50 project, we re in attendance and addressed several concerns mentioned by the public. Mr. Foley pointed out that elected officials, such as Commissioner Peter OBryan, were included in the Seven50 group, as well as well-regarded members of the community, including Indian River State College President Ed Massey, demonstrating the group was not faceless. He said right now the group is halfway through a three-year planning and r esearching stage and there is no obligation at the end of the three years to remain in the group. He r equested the county stick around and make their views known to the group throughout the rest of the process, and if at the end there are things the county doesnt like, to withdraw then. After the public comment on the issue, four commissioners voted to withdraw from the group, which was voluntary to begin with and required no cash investment. C ommissioner Peter OBryan was the only one to vote in favor of staying with the group at least through the end of the three-year planning period to see what it has to offer the county. While the county as a governing body has r emoved itself from the Se ven50 project, the cities of Sebastian, Vero Beach and Fellsmere and the I ndian River County School District are still participants in the organization and will be involved in the planning, Mr. Foley said.

Kudos to the editorK udos to H ometown News editor for keeping a sharp eye on the fabricated facts some people send to this newspaper column. Like the writer who used a right-wing satire column as a fact to accuse the president of proposing that war veterans pay for their own medical insurance to help r educe the budget deficit and then called the presidents supporters mesmerized and uneducated. How w ell educated is this person unable to differentiate fact from satire? Or is he/she just practicing the FNN model to quote any statement against the president r egardless of its source or validity, counting on its misinformed audience to propagate the deception? M aybe he/she is just mesmerized by the other side. Thank you, Ms. Editor. Keep up the good work. Editors note: We think FNN stands for fuzzy neural network.Responding to 'bunch of bigots'He re we go again, lumping everybody together. Question to the writer: The "locals" who are "a bunch of bigots, r acists, narrow-minded, backward-thinking people living in this town," do these description also fit the family with whom you spent Thanksgiving or didn't you realize that y ou included them in your invectives? I have news for you, almost all of the above-classified people are transplants, relocated here from somewhere else within the past 20 years, brought their prejudices with them and infested the town. Those who do not consider themselves indebted to the men/women who gave their lives for our freedom are most definitely in the minority. The vast majority of us who do appreciate their sacrifices and do wish you wouldn't lump us as you see fit. As it is said: "For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Wa ke up, ditto headsF or all you ultra-right wingers, Rush Limbaugh ditto heads wake up and give President Obama credit for his part to stop illegal immigration in its tracks. R eports are that more illegals are leaving the U.S., than are those entering. His economic policies that are leading us to a third world economy are working. In fact by 2016, if things continue, they will be chartering flights to return home. Let's ignore the constitution and give him a third term! In fact, I suggest making him the permanent president and F lorida/St. Lucie won't have to be the laughingstock of every election in the future. Let's hear it for Obama and his new Banana Republic. Wa ke up, AmericaBur ning the flag, protesting at a soldier's funeral, prohibiting religious symbols and same sex marriage are all OK, but own a semi-automatic firearm and you are judged a criminal. We better wake up and look down the path Obama and his henchman are taking us.Regarding assault weaponsW ith the recent tragedy, there is a lot of discussion about banning assault weapons. The definition of an assault w eapon has changed over the years to fit the agenda of lawmakers, such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein. An assault weapon initially was a weapon used primarily by the military, which had a selector switch, allowing the user to switch between semi and automatic fire. Semiautomatic fire is when one round is fired each time the trigger is pulled. When the switch is in the auto position, the rifle will continue to fire as long as the trigger is depressed. The rifle used at the recent shooting was a semi-automatic rifle designed to look like a military assault rifle. Ba sically it is a clone. Several standard-looking rifles use the same round, the only difference is that the one used at the shooting was made to look like a military rifle. This tragedy could have been prevented if a more aggressive mental health treatment program had been sought and that steps had been taken to secure firearms in the home. P utting the blame on the firearm is an agenda to score political points, not a solution to the problem.A sk for guidanceThe first thing we should do as Americans, Americans of all faiths, is to pray to God for guidance about the tragedy in Connecticut. God help us if we take Him out of the equation. The last thing we need is another expensive government program framed by President Obama and a bunch of self-serving Washington politicians.W ar on povertyIn launching his "War on Poverty," President Lyndon J ohnson pledged it would make people self-sufficient. I nstead, people raised on government goodies are more dependent than ever before. W elfare spending is at an all-time high. It's driving this nation toward bankruptcy. Per haps even worse, it's teaching recipients they can get something for nothing. It isn't helping them. It's teaching them they can do nothing. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Strong password r equirements (using upper and lower cases, at least one number and maybe a special character) cause a lot of frustration for computer users. There is however, a way to manage y our passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Lets start at the beginning: the computers login screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password. Now sure, I know what some of y ou are thinking, I dont have to enter a password when my machine boots up so you must be wrong. W ell, that isnt entirely true, its just that most machines will give the user the ability to either auto logon or not require a password at all at boot up. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. People dont want to be bothered entering their password every time, so the system gets set up without it. Su re its convenient, but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all your stuff. M any people choose to go this route thinking that H ey, Im the only one who uses this machine so I dont need it asking for a password every time but if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If its a desktop machine the argument seems a little more valid, but it wont protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the internet). The fact of the matter is if y our machine is connected to a network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. W eak passwords may be easy to remember, but they are often short dictionary words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. P asswords such as god, monkey or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember but they are also the first things these password cracking utilities will try. Thats why many sites (and programs) will insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. M onKey!387 is a hell of a lot harder for someone to crack than just the word monkey. Sure, it may be a little more inconvenient but using a weak password will just give you a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is in using one password for everything. The r easoning is well, I cant r emember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem. I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows login, email, etc. is convenient, but a problem can arise if y our password does get cracked. Its common practice for hackers (when they discover someones user name and password) to try that same username and password pair everywhere. Again, there are tools out there that will allow someone to enter a username and password and the program then goes andProtect your computer with strong passwords COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Du r ing a Dec. 18 meeting, county commissioners voted 3-2 to approve a new agreement that will allow the aircraft company to keep $2 million of the original $4 million granted in 2008 as the first payment of a $12 million benchmarkdriven economic development incentive package. The financial incentive package was offered to Piper to help retain the company and jobs in Vero B each. Piper could also keep the other $2 million moving forward if they meet certain levels of employment, specifically 600 employees through 2015. C ounty staff said there we re three benchmarks given in the initial package, wages, capital investment and employment levels. Piper was able, even in a down economy, to meet and exceed the first two, but had to lay off workers, failing to meet the third criter ia. If the aircraft company does not meet the employment benchmark at the end of the next four calendar y ears, including 2012, it will be required to pay back the county $500,000 each year. The county will not be r equired to hold the rest of the grant package, $8 million, for Piper either. The state also joined in the effort to retain Piper and paid them $6.6 million with more promised if benchmarks similar to the countys were met. The states agreement with Piper was also renegotiated, and $3.3 million is secure in Pipers coffers. The state is requiring Piper retain 650 full-time employees through 2015 and if they do not, they will be required to repay 25 percent of the other $3.3 million each year, plus penalties.PiperF rom page A1 Foundation awards mission $7,500 grantINDIAN RIVER C OUNT Y The PNC F oundation awar ded The S our ce a $7,500 gr ant to fund the mission of helping the homeless and at r isk.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Story time with Cathryn F airlee at The Emerson C enter in Vero Beach wont be a time for picture books, friendly talking animals and sitting cross-legged on the floor. Ms. Fairlee is a storyteller with more than 20 years of experience presenting spellbinding folk, historical and mythological tales to audiences around the globe. She will visit The Emerson Center on Jan. 4 at 5 p.m. to present Queen K ateryn Parr Tells All. The one-woman show will take the audience back in time and across the A tlantic Ocean to the end of the Tudor dynasty in England. There, Ms. Fairlee will share history, royal gossip and songs from the perspective of King Henry VIIIs sixth and final queen. Ms. Fairlee has been performing as a storyteller since 1982 and holds a masters degree in history with a thesis in Chinese storytelling. She is currently the editor of Storytelling magazine and teaches stor ytelling workshops, among other things. When performing as Q ueen Kateryn, Ms. Fairlee dresses in period clothing and incorporates accents to portray conversations with different characters, other than the queen. M any hours of researching data available on the queen in history books and speaking with scholars w ent into preparing the presentation, including discovering how educated and clever she was, Ms. Fairlee said in an interview. S he was kind, witty and educated. She was the first woman to have a book printed in England under her own name, Ms. Fairlee said. S he was responsible for getting then-princesses Ma ry and Elizabeth reinstated into the royal line of succession, directed a war against Scotland, tutored Q ueen Elizabeth, survived the kings anger and escaped beheading for heresy, Ms. Fairlee said. H er presentation provides accurate history, but its woven with humor and gossip from the perspective of the queen. H istory isnt about dates and places, its about lives and the people that lived them, Ms. Fairlee said. Q ueen Kateryn was the only queen of King Henry VIII to have known all of the queens, as she grew up in court, she said. T elling stories is a passion of Ms. Fairlee and she is glad to be part of an age-old tradition of passing along a communitys culture, history and values, in an entertaining way. T ickets to the presentation are $15 and can be purchased in advance online or by calling the box office. T ickets at the door are an additional $5.

H appy Hanukkah! H appy Kwanzaa! Whatever your religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season. I love this time of year. Its a time for families and friends to be together a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women are making for us. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how you feel about them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. As tough as times are these days, there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. We still have our family, our friends and ourselves. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. Think of something or someone that makes you happy and hold that close. At this time of year we all tend to be more human, more kind and more caring. My wish is that we would just keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I give you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A new option is available for individuals seeking to volunteer at the Humane Society of Ve ro B each and Indian River County. And all it takes is some basic dog behavior knowledge and a good book. F or some people, curling up with a good book and some blankets is the perfect way to de-stress and relax, and it turns out, it is for some canines, as well. The animal shelter is looking for volunteers to participate in the "Read and Relax" program, designed to reduce a dog's stress through increased human companionship. T eaching dogs to be calm and spend time being still while around people will be invaluable when trying to find them forever homes, shelter staff said. The old advice given to r educe canine stress was to exercise to exhaustion, that a tired dog is a happy dog," said Joy Szaz, the animal shelter's pet behavior assistant in a press release. "E xercise is still important, but we know that most dogs enjoy being couch potatoes.' Since dogs, especially anxious dogs, usually feel most at ease spending quiet time with people, we need volunteers who are willing to just sit with them in a quiet area and simply r ead," she said. The Humane Society operates because of donations and volunteers, said Janet Winikoff, education director. Ho we ver, it does take some modicum of physical ability to do many of the volunteer tasks at the shelter. Reading however, is not one of them, Ms. W inikoff said. When she is at home with her own dog, Nala, she is not always playing tug-of-war or fetch, or INDIAN RIVER COUNTY While the phrase, "out with the old, in with the new," is true with physical calendars, the memories of those days gone by will stay forever.

L ynn was the sixth woman Mr. Gore confessed to killing, and had she not been seen trying to escape by a witness, more women could possibly have fallen prey to Mr. Gore and his accomplice and cousin, Fr eddy Waterfield. Mr. Gore's death warrant was originally signed in 1988, but it was stayed later that year. Subsequent appeals dragged out the process. Ve ro B each,FP&L negotiations proceed at full steam N egotiations between the city of Vero Beach and Florida Power & Light for the sale of the city's electric utility continued to move forward. The latest news is that in a split vote, Vero Beach City C ouncil members requested the city attorney and city manager to draft language for a referendum to put the question of the sale to city r esidents, and a nonbinding straw poll for all electric utility ratepayers, inside and outside the city limits. The referendum question, if approved by the city council, could appear in a March election. C ouncil members who voted for the referendum made clear they were not putting the question to r atepayers because they felt they had to get permission, but rather to once and for all learn if people wanted to sell or not.

A sliding-pay scale helps seniors on a limited income afford housing, keep their independence and not need to live in nursing homes. Fo ur Chaplains monument completed After more than three y ears of fundraising, a new monument was erected in S ebastian's Riverview Park. The veteran's memorial section of the city park now has an 8-foot granite monument depicting four military chaplains who died during W orld War II when a German torpedo caused the vessel they were on to sink. Ve ro B each resident Ernie H eaton, one of the last living survivors of that tragedy, lived in Vero Beach and was a driving force behind its construction. The four chaplains, all of different faiths, are known for giving up their life vests and staying onboard the quickly sinking ship, saving lives by their actions and inspiring others through their loud prayers. Mr. Heaton said the monument was promoting interfaith actions. He lived to see its dedication in February and completion in May. He died of cancer in November. Bri dge renamed to honor Ve ro Be ach's first lady' Ve ro B each's 17th Street Br idge was dedicated and r enamed for a woman who has proven to be a leader in I ndian River County for more than 40 years. Alma Lee Loy, the first female Indian River County commissioner, a long-time business owner and a community leader, was humbled by the request to recognize her accomplishments by naming the bridge after her. The bridge was one of the major projects she worked on as a commissioner, and opened in 1979.

T alks between Indian River County and Vero B each about the location of the bus hub began earlier this year in response to concerns from residents living around the hub, in the Old To wn neighborhood. On numerous occasions r esidents of the neighborhood took to the podium at Ve ro B each City Hall to voice their concerns about the traffic, trash and increased number of pedestrians walking on their streets. Mo ving the hub and building coverings and bathrooms onto a cityo wned property leased to the county had been part of the discussions, but when the city declined to be r esponsible for the landscaping and maintenance of the property once it was leased, the county decided to stop seeking a new place. P hil Matson, metropolitan planning organization director, said the property in question, which is near the r ailroad tracks on 16th St r eet, is already maintained by the city, so such a term was unacceptable to the county. I nstead, the county will attempt to re-apply the grant they were going to use for the construction of the new hub toward outfitting the current hub site with pavilions and bathrooms, Mr. Matson said. "W e feel that the site is functioning very well," he said. The main bus hub has been at its current location, the site of the old county administration center, since 2010.

The refund was offered to current property owners of the qualifying properties after activists repeatedly spoke before the commission to bring to light the provisions on the impact fees say they must be r eturned if not used in six y ears. Pr oponents of returning the impact fees also made it known that the process for collecting the fees was arduous and the commission voted to make the process easier and more transparent. Pr oposal for temporary housing for homeless evolves The homeless in Indian River County have advocates working diligently on a way to help them back on their feet and ideas on how to make that happen are coming closer to actual reality. The latest news from the organizers of Camp Haven, a nonprofit group working to develop a temporary housing situation for qualified homeless individuals, is that a foreclosed motel could be their new home. The old Citrus Motel on U.S. 1 near the Vero Beach Airport is the latest property being considered for the temporary housing site, after a tent camp proposal in south county did not appear feasible with readily available funds and expected fundraising efforts. The change came soon after a leadership change in the nonprofit after its founder moved out of state. City,police department sign three-year contract After months of negotiations, the city of Vero Beach and the Vero Beach Police D epartment's union signed a three-year contract in O ctober, avoiding an impasse. The contract was hotly debated among residents because the city manager was proposing rank reductions that would have affected nine officers. The final contract did not include rank reductions, but did include fewer holidays, a change to vacation and sick pay accumulation and an increase to the percentage officers must contribute to their pension funds. The city manager proposed the rank reductions to help the city meet its shrinking budget.

"'Read and Relax' is about getting the dogs to calm down and relax and not feel anxious or constantly need attention," Ms. Winikoff. While there is basic volunteer and dog behavior training, a volunteer can be one-on-one in a room, or in a kennel run with a dog to read. While reading, the volunteer must be careful to not interact with the dog at all, no eye contact, no direct speaking to the animal, she said. When dogs are more accustomed to being calm around people, it is much easier to help them find a home, and once they are in a home, it helps them acclimate faster to their new home environment, Ms. Winikoff said. The next general volunteer orientation session will be held Jan. 5 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. This new program gives more individuals the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of our dogs," Ms. Winikoff said.

The meeting room was packed with people, the majority of whom were not in favor of the planning group. Some audience members waved current and past American flags, including a bright yellow Don't Tread on Me" flag, demonstrating their concerns that Seven50 would take away their way of life and community values and impose property r estrictions and higherdensity living in the name of efficiency. F or the past few months, the Treasure Coast and S outh Florida regional planning councils, with the financial backing of the U.S. Department of H ousing and Urban and De velopment, the U.S. D epartment of Transportation and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, have been traveling to different locations in the Treasure Coast r egion to lay out a 50-year plan for seven counties in S outheast Florida. The overall idea for the economic development project is called the Seven 50 sustainable communities initiative and is self-described on its website as "a blueprint for growing a more prosperous, more desirable Southeast Florida during the next 50 years and beyond." The two regional planning councils are joining together with Southeast F lorida Regional Partnership, a collaboration of more than 200 public, priv ate and civic stakeholders, to map out a strategy for high-quality lifestyles for the future. S ome members of the audience said they believed regional planning as touted by Seven50 was headed down a road that would throw away values I ndian River County residents hold dear: home r ule, low-density, small government and fiscal r esponsibility. O ther members scoffed at the idea that 50-year planning was even feasible as even business plans fluctuate constantly. Also unsettling for residents was the fact that the decision makers were faceless bureaucrats" and unelected people. K evin Foley, chairman of the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council and Ma r cela Camblor, director of the Seven50 project, we re in attendance and addressed several concerns mentioned by the public. Mr. Foley pointed out that elected officials, such as Commissioner Peter O'Bryan, were included in the Seven50 group, as well as well-regarded members of the community, including Indian River State College President Ed Massey, demonstrating the group was not "faceless." He said right now the group is halfway through a three-year planning and r esearching stage and there is no obligation at the end of the three years to remain in the group. He r equested the county stick around and make their views known to the group throughout the rest of the process, and if at the end there are things the county doesn't like, to withdraw then. After the public comment on the issue, four commissioners voted to withdraw from the group, which was voluntary to begin with and required no cash investment. C ommissioner Peter O'Bryan was the only one to vote in favor of staying with the group at least through the end of the three-year planning period to see what it has to offer the county. While the county as a governing body has r emoved itself from the Se ven50 project, the cities of Sebastian, Vero Beach and Fellsmere and the I ndian River County School District are still participants in the organization and will be involved in the planning, Mr. Foley said.

Kudos to the editorK udos to H ometown News editor for keeping a sharp eye on the fabricated facts some people send to this newspaper column. Like the writer who used a right-wing satire column as a fact to accuse the president of proposing that war veterans pay for their own medical insurance to help r educe the budget deficit and then called the president's supporters "mesmerized and uneducated." How w ell educated is this person unable to differentiate fact from satire? Or is he/she just practicing the FNN model to quote any statement against the president r egardless of its source or validity, counting on its misinformed audience to propagate the deception? M aybe he/she is just mesmerized by the other side. Thank you, Ms. Editor. Keep up the good work. Editor's note: We think FNN stands for fuzzy neural network.Responding to 'bunch of bigots'He re we go again, lumping everybody together. Question to the writer: The "locals" who are "a bunch of bigots, r acists, narrow-minded, backward-thinking people living in this town," do these description also fit the family with whom you spent Thanksgiving or didn't you realize that y ou included them in your invectives? I have news for you, almost all of the above-classified people are transplants, relocated here from somewhere else within the past 20 years, brought their prejudices with them and infested the town. Those who do not consider themselves indebted to the men/women who gave their lives for our freedom are most definitely in the minority. The vast majority of us who do appreciate their sacrifices and do wish you wouldn't lump us as you see fit. As it is said: "For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Wa ke up, ditto headsF or all you ultra-right wingers, Rush Limbaugh ditto heads wake up and give President Obama credit for his part to stop illegal immigration in its tracks. R eports are that more illegals are leaving the U.S., than are those entering. His economic policies that are leading us to a third world economy are working. In fact by 2016, if things continue, they will be chartering flights to return home. Let's ignore the constitution and give him a third term! In fact, I suggest making him the permanent president and F lorida/St. Lucie won't have to be the laughingstock of every election in the future. Let's hear it for Obama and his new Banana Republic. Wa ke up, AmericaBu r ning the flag, protesting at a soldier's funeral, prohibiting religious symbols and same sex marriage are all OK, but own a semi-automatic firearm and you are judged a criminal. We better wake up and look down the path Obama and his henchman are taking us.Regarding assault weaponsW ith the recent tragedy, there is a lot of discussion about banning assault weapons. The definition of an assault w eapon has changed over the years to fit the agenda of lawmakers, such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein. An assault weapon initially was a weapon used primarily by the military, which had a selector switch, allowing the user to switch between semi and automatic fire. Semiautomatic fire is when one round is fired each time the trigger is pulled. When the switch is in the auto position, the rifle will continue to fire as long as the trigger is depressed. The rifle used at the recent shooting was a semi-automatic rifle designed to look like a military assault rifle. Ba sically it is a clone. Several standard-looking rifles use the same round, the only difference is that the one used at the shooting was made to look like a military rifle. This tragedy could have been prevented if a more aggressive mental health treatment program had been sought and that steps had been taken to secure firearms in the home. P utting the blame on the firearm is an agenda to score political points, not a solution to the problem.A sk for guidanceThe first thing we should do as Americans, Americans of all faiths, is to pray to God for guidance about the tragedy in Connecticut. God help us if we take Him out of the equation. The last thing we need is another expensive government program framed by President Obama and a bunch of self-serving Washington politicians.W ar on povertyIn launching his "War on Poverty," President Lyndon J ohnson pledged it would make people self-sufficient. I nstead, people raised on government goodies are more dependent than ever before. W elfare spending is at an all-time high. It's driving this nation toward bankruptcy. Pe r haps even worse, it's teaching recipients they can get something for nothing. It isn't helping them. It's teaching them they can do nothing. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Strong password r equirements (using upper and lower cases, at least one number and maybe a special character) cause a lot of frustration for computer users. There is however, a way to manage y our passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Let's start at the beginning: the computer's login screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password. Now sure, I know what some of y ou are thinking, "I don't have to enter a password when my machine boots up so you must be wrong." W ell, that isn't entirely true, it's just that most machines will give the user the ability to either auto logon or not require a password at all at boot up. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. People don't want to be bothered entering their password every time, so the system gets set up without it. Su re it's convenient, but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all your stuff. M any people choose to go this route thinking that "H ey, I'm the only one who uses this machine so I don't need it asking for a password every time" but if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If it's a desktop machine the argument seems a little more valid, but it won't protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the internet). The fact of the matter is if y our machine is connected to a network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. W eak passwords may be easy to remember, but they are often short "dictionary" words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. P asswords such as "god," monkey" or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember but they are also the first things these password cracking utilities will try. That's why many sites (and programs) will insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. "M onKey!387" is a hell of a lot harder for someone to crack than just the word monkey." Sure, it may be a little more inconvenient but using a weak password will just give you a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is in using one password for everything. The r easoning is "well, I can't r emember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem." I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows login, email, etc. is convenient, but a problem can arise if y our password does get cracked. It's common practice for hackers (when they discover someone's user name and password) to try that same username and password pair everywhere. Again, there are tools out there that will allow someone to enter a username and password and the program then goes andProtect your computer with strong passwords COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Du r ing a Dec. 18 meeting, county commissioners voted 3-2 to approve a new agreement that will allow the aircraft company to keep $2 million of the original $4 million granted in 2008 as the first payment of a $12 million benchmarkdriven economic development incentive package. The financial incentive package was offered to Piper to help retain the company and jobs in Vero B each. Piper could also keep the other $2 million moving forward if they meet certain levels of employment, specifically 600 employees through 2015. C ounty staff said there we re three benchmarks given in the initial package, wages, capital investment and employment levels. Piper was able, even in a down economy, to meet and exceed the first two, but had to lay off workers, failing to meet the third criter ia. If the aircraft company does not meet the employment benchmark at the end of the next four calendar y ears, including 2012, it will be required to pay back the county $500,000 each year. The county will not be r equired to hold the rest of the grant package, $8 million, for Piper either. The state also joined in the effort to retain Piper and paid them $6.6 million with more promised if benchmarks similar to the county's were met. The state's agreement with Piper was also renegotiated, and $3.3 million is secure in Piper's coffers. The state is requiring Piper retain 650 full-time employees through 2015 and if they do not, they will be required to repay 25 percent of the other $3.3 million each year, plus penalties.PiperF rom page A1 Foundation awards mission $7,500 grantINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The PNC Foundation awarded The Source a $7,500 grant to fund the mission of helping the homeless and at risk.

T en sites across the country will participate in the national research project led by the University of C entral Florida using T eachLivETM, a computersimulated classroom using avatars replicating middle and high school students. The grant includes $8,000 to IRSC provided by the University of Central F lorida through the Bill and M elinda Gates Foundation to assist with data analysis. On the Treasure Coast, I ndian River State College will work closely with 22 teachers from St. Lucie, Ma r tin and Indian River counties to evaluate how T eachLive can be used to enhance teacher behaviors to support student learning. The teachers have been observed by IRSC education faculty prior to using the multi-reality system and will be observed following sessions with the virtual reality program to determine changes in classroom management skills. In addition to current teachers participating in the research project, college-level education students at IRSC also use the system to practice classr oom management methods. The TeachLive simulator allows teachers or teacher candidates to interact with r eal-time student avatars who exhibit the most challenging behaviors of middle-school students through a projection system. The student avatars are controlled by "interactors," professionals trained in voice impersonations and developmentally appropriate behaviors, resulting in unscripted scenarios, including disruptions, giggling and non-speaking outbursts. To create a realistic classr oom environment, the students represent the five most common categories of behaviors common to middle school students as classified by psychologists: S ean. Always seeking affirmation (with a perpetually raised hand). Maria. S hying away from teachers and peers; Cindy (CJ). Constantly testing authority. K evin. Looking for affirmation from other students, even if they misbehave. E d. Shy but willing. "T eachLive provides a unique opportunity for teachers and education students to react to all types of classroom behavior, practice the best classr oom management methods and positively impact student learning," said Ma r ta Cronin, director of the IRSC School of Education. IRSC offers bachelors in education degree programs in middle and high school math, middle-school science, high-school biology and exceptional student education. S tudents gain a firm foundation in all aspects of teaching practice and complete students teaching at local schools during their senior year.

The centrally located office provides greater visibility and makes it easier for people to locate us. It's a great space to meet with providers and families." An initiative of the Junior League of Indian River, Whole Child connects families to much-needed programs and resources through a confidential, webbased program.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Story time with Cathryn F airlee at The Emerson C enter in Vero Beach won't be a time for picture books, friendly talking animals and sitting cross-legged on the floor. Ms. Fairlee is a storyteller with more than 20 years of experience presenting spellbinding folk, historical and mythological tales to audiences around the globe. She will visit The Emerson Center on Jan. 4 at 5 p.m. to present "Queen K ateryn Parr Tells All." The one-woman show will take the audience back in time and across the A tlantic Ocean to the end of the Tudor dynasty in England. There, Ms. Fairlee will share history, royal gossip and songs from the perspective of King Henry VIII's sixth and final queen. Ms. Fairlee has been performing as a storyteller since 1982 and holds a master's degree in history with a thesis in Chinese storytelling. She is currently the editor of "Storytelling" magazine and teaches stor ytelling workshops, among other things. When performing as "Q ueen Kateryn," Ms. Fairlee dresses in period clothing and incorporates accents to portray conversations with different characters, other than the queen. M any hours of researching data available on the queen in history books and speaking with scholars w ent into preparing the presentation, including discovering how educated and clever she was, Ms. Fairlee said in an interview. "S he was kind, witty and educated. She was the first woman to have a book printed in England under her own name," Ms. Fairlee said. S he was responsible for getting then-princesses Ma ry and Elizabeth reinstated into the royal line of succession, directed a war against Scotland, tutored Q ueen Elizabeth, survived the king's anger and escaped beheading for heresy, Ms. Fairlee said. H er presentation provides accurate history, but it's woven with humor and gossip from the perspective of the queen. "H istory isn't about dates and places, it's about lives and the people that lived them," Ms. Fairlee said. Q ueen Kateryn was the only queen of King Henry VIII to have known all of the queens, as she grew up in court, she said. T elling stories is a passion of Ms. Fairlee and she is glad to be part of an age-old tradition of passing along a community's culture, history and values, in an entertaining way. T ickets to the presentation are $15 and can be purchased in advance online or by calling the box office. T ickets at the door are an additional $5.

It's a time for families and friends to be together a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women are making for us. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how you feel about them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. As tough as times are these days, there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. We still have our family, our friends and ourselves. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. Think of something or someone that makes you happy and hold that close. At this time of year we all tend to be more human, more kind and more caring. My wish is that we would just keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I give you the "Twelve Days of Christmas," golf style.
