Credit card payment option for city services coming to SebastianSEBASTIAN Payment for some city services can soon be paid for with the swipe of a plastic card. Dur ing the Jan. 23 Sebastian City C ouncil meeting, City Manager Al M inner announced an outside company will bring the credit card payment service option for the first time in the citys history. The exact date for the credit card processing services to begin was not available at press time, but is expected to be sometimes in Febr uary, city staff said. C urrently, the city services are paid for on a cash basis, Mr. Minner said. When people come to city hall to purchase a cemetery plot, building permits, or other city services, they will soon have the option to pay with a credit card and incur a small convenience fee of $2.95, said Ken K ilgore, city finance director. So me small services, such as garage sale permits, probably wouldnt be worth using credit cards, because they are already such a nominal fee, he said. Gar age sale permits are only $2, so unless a customer was desperately in need of using a credit card, adding the $2.95 convenience fee 771437 052060Explore these majestic bomber aircraft inside and out.Feel the engines power up and take to the skies in an amazing 30-minute Flight Experience!

The one-year-old stray female Maltese/poodle mix arrived at the animal shelter on Nov. 26 courtesy of I ndian River County animal control. She was diagnosed with paralysis in her back legs, but her condition was not so severe that the veterinarians on staff gave up hope. Dr Lyndall Soule said B uffy still possessed the ability to feel some pain in her rear paws, so she decided to see if acupuncture would make a difference and possibly help her walk Cliff Partlow /staff photographerL yndall Soule, a veterinarian at the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County, holds Emmylou, a one-year-old stray terrier mix brought to the HSVB with paralyzed hind legs.

When it comes to V alentines Day, local businesses can help you get a clue. On the outside, Valentines Day is perfect roses and dainty chocolates, but behind the scenes, planning a special romantic interlude on your own can mean pricked fingers and a distinctly burnt kitchen smell. Luckily, every town has some professionals who can help pick out and plan the perfect way to say I love you and they have some advice to share. No 1 is to plan ahead, dont let a special date sneak up on you. J udy and Richard Pinkman, owners of How Sw eet It Is antiques and chocolate shop in Vero B each, said for most people, chocolates are a huge hit, but with time, people can take it a step further by customizing the chocolate to fit the person and the occasion. F or a real chocoholic, a box of assorted chocolates may not be enough, but, when the box made of 1.5 pounds of milk or dark chocolate itself, that gift could be just right Ms. Pinkman said. P eople like Ms. Pinkman and others in industries where gifts, especially V alentines Day gifts are often purchased always have anecdotes to share about the sweet, silly and scary parts of past Valentines Day experiences. W e had one man come Behind the scenes advice for Valentines DayBy Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.com See H EART, A4 SEBASTIAN Humans are definitely a large percentage of the guests to visit P elican Island National W ildlife Refuge in Sebastian, but the kind of visitors that fly in on their own set of wings are also joyfully r eceived. Last week, a human visitor from Vermont spotted a ra re winged visitor from the Car ibbean checking out the swimming holes at the nations first and oldest wildlife refuge, and birders from around the state and country are coming out to the refuge to catch a glimpse, said refuge staff. The white-cheeked pintail, also known as a Bahama pintail, is a species of dabbling duck rarely found this far north, and refuge visitor Donald H. Miller spotted the duck swimming and feeding with other ducks in the man-made pond located near the Centennial Trail, said Kevin Lowry, refuge r anger. The duck is primarily found in the Caribbean, S outh America and the G alapagos Islands, so to see it this far north is quite surprising and exciting, drawing people from far distances to see it for themselves, Mr. Lowry said. A large number of wildlife can be spotted on the refuge y ear round, including various birds and waterfowl, bobcats, raccoons and other F lorida creatures, he said.

The acupuncture did more than help her regain some mobility, B uffy is now racing around, said Janet W inikoff, education director for the animal shelter. When Buffy came to the shelter, she was incontinent but the therapy has given her the ability to feel again and can be housebroken, making her even more adoptable. S he has exceeded all of the goals I had for her r ecovery and still continues to make progress with once a week acupuncture treatments, Dr. Soule said in an email. B uffys future has no boundaries. She is now able to navigate small stairs and acts self-sufficient when she achieves a task which has previously not been within her powers of mobility, the veterinarian said. This is not the first time Dr Soule has used acupuncture therapy on shelter animals, but it doesn t make the results less emotional and special. (Seeing) Buffy walk down the hall carrying her favorite toy, which is as big as she is, brought tears to my eyes, Dr. Soule said. B uffy is available for adoption, Ms. Winikoff said. H er future adoptive family should know that she is likely to need follow-up tune up acupuncture treatments and requires r egular activity such as walks or swimming with a life vest in warm water for therapy.

in, he was looking for ideas because he wanted to propose on Valentines Day and he wanted something chocolate to put the engagement ring in, Ms. Pinkman said. H e put the ring inside the 1.5 pound chocolate heart box along with the assorted chocolates and he got a yes. They came in the store later together and they were such a cute couple. It was really special, Ms. Pinkman said. F or florists, Valentines D ay means hours and hours of designing arrangements to order and a very small window of time to deliver them, but even when they have high volumes of product to work with, they work with customers to give them the best and positive shopping experience possible. K athy Shain, a floral designer at Artistic First F lorist in Vero Beach, said she has so many crazy V alentines Day stories its hard to even remember them all. D efinitely ordering ahead of time is the best plan, but sometimes even the best laid plans can go haywire, she said. A unique experience that is forever engraved into her memory is a cold, snowy Fe b. 14 when she worked up north. A customer ordered red roses to be delivered to a woman, and when the driver got to the r ecipients house, he immediately left to make another delivery, but it wasnt roses. The woman was pregnant and needed to get to the hospital to deliver the baby and it was snowing and it was going to be awhile before someone else could come and get her, so he took her to the hospital and she had a baby girl. The lady got quite a few roses that Valentines Day as you can imagine, but the delivery man quit a few days after that. He wanted no part of doing that again, Ms. Shain said with a chuckle. F lorists do have a small number of women that come and order gift baskets, balloon bouquets or even flower bouquets for the men in their life on V alentines Day, but 98 percent of the time its men buying for women, said Ms. S hain. S ome advice for those male shoppers would be to think about what their ladies like, and where they are going to receive their gift. T eddy bears are soft, cuddly and can be a sweet thing to receive from a sweetheart, but trying to send a 6-foot teddy bear in a flower delivery truck with a dozen vased roses to a workplace with a tiny desk is a little difficult logistically, although the visual impact is tremendous, Ms. Shai n said. Once, a man came in with a very serious and determined look on his face to get a Valentines Day arrangement for his wife. T he year before he bought her a red Eureka v acuum cleaner, so this y ear, he had to do something extra-special. We told him, it was the right color, but the wrong day to give it, Ms. Shain said. Ad ding soft rose petals to a dinner table, bedroom or bathroom automatically r amps up the romantic atmosphere of a location. G uys will come in, and they dont know how to ask for what they want, so we try to help them, but were all women in here and we can just watch them turn blood-red, she said. Artistic First Floral has partnered with other local businesses in the community to help guys make their V alentines Day shopping quick and easy. W e ve tried to make it one stop shopping so they dont have to run to 20 places to get 20 things, said Alyssa Hiser. Par tnerships with businesses such as Classy Cupcakes, Marks at the Pointe S alon and Boutique, Longevity Ladies fitness and spa and new Vero B each bakery, Patisserie, mean more options for personalizing a gift, she said. F or out of the ordinary V alentines Day gifts, All Thru the House in Vero B each has a large selection of unique gifts and art pieces for the home, as well as jewelry, which is a popular and greatly appreciated gift for women, store staff said. The most important part of a Valentines Day gift for most women, however, is not the size of the arrangement, the quantity of chocolates or the fuzziness of a teddy bear. The biggest thing that women say when they call us to thank us is that they cant believe he took the initiative to do something, Ms. Shain said. They just love that he r emembered, thought about it, did something and did it on time for them. Thats the biggest thing, she said.

Nearly 500 students from all over Indian River County, participates in the annual event. Alex McLaughlin, a fifth-grade student at Pelican Island Elementary, explains how kernels of popcorn pop when stored in different temperatures to judge Alan Korn. A way outW ell, after seeing the population of Fort Pierce at 37,500 and the poverty level at 32 percent makes you think. Just what are these people thinking after the election? Y ou do have a split in the economy. Those who have, and those that run to the government for assistance. The haves are the well to-dos. They have an education. They applied their brains to learning so they could have nicer wealth in life. Theres a big difference with that mentality. The ones who just get by do not want to apply themselves to their o wn wellbeing. And thats a crying shame. Ive been homeless, and have been helped by my friends to get myself out of my situation with success. So for those who just want to sit at home and get frustrated because yo u re dependent upon the government for assistance, theres a way out of that dilemma. Its called get out and apply yourself. Dont be part of the problem, create your o wn destiny. It made me sick to see those poverty numbers. The only excuse those people have is plain laziness. America was brought up on self-reliance. People who are well-to-do earned it. They owe nothing to those people who are just down-right lazy. Thats the difference between the well-todo and the ones who are uneducated, and its never too late to apply yourself. The facts?R eading a report from American progress as suggested by the writer is certainly not the place to go for factual information. Y our editors note sounds like it was printed off their w ebsite. Anyone who reads or follows politics knows that The Center for American Progress is not independent, nor is it nonpartisan. It is a leftist group supporting socialistic and Democratic Party issues. No problem there, and the r ight have their support organizations as well. Just tell it like it is. No smoke and mirrors. Thanks.A wake up callThis is a response to the CWA Local 3181 from a long time N.J. Union Contractor now retired in Florida. You need a wakeup call. First, the public employees union is a blanket on top of Civil Service. Secondly, the public employees unions are coddled by the politicians for their PA C money and votes, not for possible losses in production or shutdown. Thirdly, you are never sent home when there is no work; get vacation pay and sick leave, something the trade union's members do not get unless they paid for it. Fourthly, trade union members do not get medical benefits or pension credits unless they work a certain number of hours each year, and when they retire some have to pay up to a $1,000 a month for medical when they r etire. How much will you pay? Their pension funds are always at risk, unlike yours. I am sure you can show anyone who will listen that your hourly pay is less than a similar a buildings trades member, for the same job. But if you compare both over the lifetime of service, you are way ahead. So in closing, if I were you, I would keep a low profile before your employer (the taxpayers) realize when I and other Union contractors were done with a trade union employee, I was done, unlike the taxpayers who, after hiring you, have to pay you until you die and in some cases, even after you die. In short, your letter was an insult to all the trade union people who go home tired and dirty every day. Defending the tax codeThe tax code has few defenders these days. It's too complicated, expensive and onerous. It drives companies overseas. It discourages savings. It penalizes growth. It's almost as if it were written by our enemies rather than by our socalled representatives.The presidents jobO ur president was elected to provide leadership. So far, we are proceeding from one crisis to another. Rather than strategic planning, this country is lurching back and forth. This is not leadership. It is failure. It's not what he was elected to do.Debt on top of debtTo keep the ship afloat, President Obama is piling on debt on top of an already record-breaking debt. It grows each and every day. A recent calculation is $10,596,768,009,341.49. That's $90,000 for every household in the United States. Are you prepared to pay your $90,000?Wishful thinkingPr esident Obama believes we can spend ourselves rich. F at chance of that happening. His wishful thinking is a disaster for this country. We can't keep giving "stuff" to people. R eferring to the so-called safety net where government helps out people who are temporarily down on their luck, C ongressman Paul Ryan says, "I don't want to see government turn the safety net into a hammock."About gunsT ake guns away from law abiding people and who will be safer? Ask Byron Lee, owner of a pharmacy near Fresno, C alifornia. When two masked men entered his store and started firing, Lee returned fire, killing one. Police captured the other. The local police chief stated, This individual, having a gun, absolutely saved his life. Why do politicians want the government to ban private gun o wnership?Regarding FEMAThe Federal Emergency Management Agency says that it has been losing money for years and admits that it has no plans to change policies or procedures. It's called insurance but what it really amounts to is a giant subsidy for a special group of property owners. We will always suffer damage from hurricanes. If congress wants to find ways to cut spending, it need look no further than FEMA.Excessive spendingPr esident Obama refuses to concede the obvious, but other Democrats are starting to acknowledge that the government's excessive spending and borrowing is heading us toward a dramatic day of reckoning. Even Erskine Bo wles, a liberal investment banker, is now an unlikely itinerant preacher on the urgency of dealing with the deficit. "The fiscal path we are on today is simply not sustainable," he says. "The deficits that we are incurring on an annual basis are like a cancer, and they are truly going to destroy this country from within unless we have the common sense to do something about it. We face the most predictable economic crisis in history." Wise men will listen. 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. It s official we live in the future. My birthday was a while back and as a gift my father gave me an iPhone. And after using it for a while, I have to say Im stunned at the level of technology we have in the palm of our hands today and that we take it for granted. Im sure at this point some of you reading this may be thinking Hes writing about a phone? This is a computer column. What does this have to do with computers? And Ill answer by saying that calling this device a phone is like calling my laptop an adding machine. The fact of the matter is that by carrying an iPhone, you are pretty much carrying around a full blown computer in your pocket. B ut its so small Ye s, it is small, but dont let its size fool you. Im not going to go into technical things like processor speed or memory, but I am going to r amble on a bit about how easy it is to use and just a couple of the things it can do. B ut before I begin, I want to clarify a few points in an effort to avoid coming off like a raving Apple fan boy gushing about how superior A pple products are. Now, Im no strangers to hand-held computers, PDAs (personal digital assistants) or smart phones. I started carrying a Palm 3 PDA back in 1998 and have gone through a half a dozen smart phones of different makes and models over the last 10 y ears, and every one of them promised to give me the same abilities and tools that I use regularly on full sized computers. Things like email, web browsing, contact management and the like that are effortless on a full-sized personal computer, the smart phones that I have used in the past have all promised that they could handle it. But in reality, getting them to work has always been an exercise in frustration. Ive tried Palm based phones, Blackberries, W indows Mobile and others and (aside for sending and r eceiving occasional text messages) have found most smart phones to be just glorified phones the advanced features were always more trouble than they were worth, and I expected the same level of frustration with the iPhone. Bo y, was I wrong! This thing is probably the easiest piece of technology that Ive ever used and it does what it says it can do with a practically zero frustration factor. Right out of the box, I was able to instantly (and easily!) connect to my wireless network at home to avoid r unning up data charges through my cell phone provider while I played with some of the features that make this device more a computer than a phone. I was able to get online immediately and (within seconds) was doing Google searches and even looking at my neighborhood with Google street view. I was able to effortlessly gain access to my email and didnt even have to squint to read it! And then I discovered the A pp Store. Logging into the App Store is like being unleashed in a candy store. I was able to find hundreds of free apps (programs that run on the phone) and most of the apps that caught my eye that arent free were cheap enough to not break the bank if I decided to download them. Programs like GPS and translator programs download instantly, and r eally increase the phones functionality. They are easy to find, easy to get and easy to use. The list goes on and on and I find that the more apps I load into this thing, the more I rely on it more than my laptop when Im out in the field. Now, I know that some of y ou reading this today may be carrying some other type of smart phone like an Android (never tried one) or one of the newer Blackberries (the one I carried was one of the first ones) and may be thinking Why is this guy going on about the iPhone when I can do all this on my phone? I will admit to not having tried them all. But if the iPhone is any indication as toCan almost carry a computer in a pocket COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY See COMPUT E, A8 Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Sebastian River Area 046839 Out & about SEBASTIAN There are few restaurants that I have visited that make you look forward to your next visit after the first bite. S ea Jasmine Thai Restaur ant, 971 Sebastian Blvd., is a restaurant tucked into a shopping plaza and opened in April 2012. The restaurant is family r un by Scott McLeod and his mother Pann McLeod. The inspiration for most of the dishes in the restaur ant is from Mr. McLeods grandfather and Ms. M cLeods father, Sea. I remember growing up I saan [in Thailand], Ms. M cLeod said. My father made all kinds of foods and I remember always being surrounded by the jasmine gardens. The family restaurant makes you feel like family as you dine on dishes including chicken, beef, fresh fish and even duck. The fresh ingredients jump off the plate and are hand chosen by Mr. M cLeod, who cooks all of the dishes with the care of cooking for his family. I only use my freezer for the ice cream, said Mr. M cLeod. Everything I use is fresh and we make everything here, even the noodles, sauces and chosen by me including the salmon, grouper and tilapia. I mmediately I was surprised with the first course of the meal, a watermelon and cilantro soup. It is a must try at the restaurant and prepares you for the feast of the other dishes. The soup was made for Ms. M cLeod by her father when she was young. F or an appetizer, Mr. M cLeod recommended the Thai fish cake, which was loaded with salmon and crispy on the outside. A cucumber dressing completed the dish. F or the main course, I had the roasted Peking duck stir-fry over a generous portion of greens including sprouts, baby corn, peas and more crisp and fresh vegetables, all tossed in a house red curry sauce. The dish was served with a helping of jasmine r ice. B ite after bite, the curry sauce complemented the tender duck. My companion enjoyed the ginger chicken stir-fry and each plate was finished to the last bit of rice. The Thai iced tea was delicious before and during the meal, but toward dessert I changed to the lemon grass and ginger tea and fell in love. The fresh drink was a perfect palate cleanser and delightful to the taste buds. M ake sure to leave room for dessert or the experience of Sea Jasmine will not be complete. I had a sampling of all the desserts, from the deep fried banana, flash fried after being wrapped in rice paper and then drizzled with honey, to the sweet r ice with mango which was light yet more than satisfying. My favorite is a new addition to their expanding menu, which was the vanilla ice cream with walnuts and tapioca pearls. The restaurant is constantly expanding its menu, now including a lunch menu filled with delicious dishes and great prices. R estaurant hours are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday for lunch, and from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for dinner. Its closed on Sundays.

VERO BEACH Living pieces of World War II history will touchdown at the Ve ro Beach Municipal Airport on Feb. 13 for the W ings of Freedom tour. Ve ro Beach will be one of 110 cities in the Wings of Freedom tour produced by the nonprofit Collings F oundation and visitors to the municipal airport can see, experience, and even fly in, a restored plane that carried out wartime missions more than half a century ago. The Boeing B-17 Flying Fo rtr ess Nine O Nine WWII heavy bomber, the consolidated B-24 Liberator Witchcraft WWII heavy bomber, and the P51C Mustang fighter will fly into Vero Beach on Feb. 13 and fly out on Feb. 15, and members of the public are invited to come out and be educated about the rare planes and their history, said Hunter Chaney, director of marketing for the C ollings Foundation. These are arguably the greatest aircraft in history, Mr. Chaney said. Eric Menger, airport director, said the tour will be held at Sun Aviation on 3400 Cherokee Drive in Ve ro Beach. These will be airplanes that are 60 years old or older and theyre in tremendous shape, Mr. M enger said. Ve ro Beach has historically been an aviationfriendly community, with the airport serving as a naval base in the early 1940s, and many people in the area are WWII veterans, others are pilots and many people are fascinated by flight, he said. T ickets to the event are $12 for adults and $6 for children younger than 12. WWII veterans can tour the aircraft at no cost, Mr. Chaney said. D iscounted rates are available for school groups. T our times are available from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Fe b. 13; 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 14; and 9 a.m. to noon on Feb. 15. The planes are expected to take off to their next city location after 12 p.m. The B-17 plane is one of only eight planes of its kind still flying in the U.S., and the B-24 and the P-51C M ustang, a full dual control model, are the only r emaining examples of their type flying in the world, a press release said. After the war, many of the planes were scrapped for their raw aluminum, so there arent many examples left accessible to people to see, Mr. Chaney said. The Collings Foundations mission is organizing living history events in order for people to learn about history and heritage in a more hands-on and active approach, ultimately heightening the experience and potentially creating a love and interest in learning more, Mr. Chaney said. I t s one of the finest examples of edu-tainment out there, he said. T ickets to fly in the aircraft, and even to fly one of them are also available. F lights on either the B-17 or the B024 are $425 per person for approximately a half-hour experience. The opportunity to fly the P-51 is available for $2,200 for a half-hour, or $3,200 for a full hour. Flights take place before and after tours. F or flight reservations, call (800) 568-8924.For more information about W ings of Freedom or the Collings Foundation,visit www.collingsfoundation.o rg. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 8, 2013 Sebastian River Area B3 5 0 % O F F GIFTCERTIFICATES5 0 % O F F GIFTCERTIFICATES051607 1 Tapas on the Water Bella Roma Buckshot Bay Caps Island Grille Capones Hideaway Coastal Paddle Boarding Connies Flowers Cowboys Steakhouse Dee Stefanos Fairwinds Golf Course Fred Astair Dance Studio Ians Tropical Grill Hair We R Joeys Seafood Shack Luna Italian Cuisine Mambos Cafe Mrs.ClausChristmas Store Natures Pocket Papa Luchies Pizzeria Red Rooster Caf Sail Away Surprise Savanna Golf Club Sweet Creations by L.S.Young Tin Fish Treasure Coast Boat Rentals Uncle Sams Brau Haus Vics Pizza & Italian Restaurant Mrs.ClausChristmas Storewww.HometownNewsOL.com Got An AppetiteFor Savings? 1140 US 1 SEBASTIAN 589-8989MON-SAT11AM-10PM SUNCLOSEDGIFTCERTIFICATESAV AILABLEJoin us on Facebook or visit our websitewww.vicspizzafl.com EVERY DAY EARLYBIRD3:00PM6:30PM WONTONSHRIMPPROSCIUTTOORPEPPERONISPIRALSA THINPIZZACRUSTROLLEDW/PROSCIUTTOORPEPPERONI, CHEDDAR CHEESEANDMOZZARELLACHEESESERVEDW/A SIDEOFPIZZASAUCE SHRIMPPROSCIUTTOINASC AMPISAUCEOVERLINGUINECHICKENRUSTICASUN-DRIEDTOMATOES, SPINACHINGARLICOILOVERPENNEPASTAVEALPICCATACAPERS, MUSHROOMS, LEMON, BUTTEROVERTHINSPA GHETTI DINNERSPECIALS APPETIZERS BEST ITALIANRESTAURANTBYREADERSOFSEBASTIAN771451DINEINORDINEOUT...

With the colder winter weather upon us and the possibility of intermittent freezing temperatures, we want to plant annuals that will need minimal care during these cold snaps. P ansies are an excellent choice as they tolerate the cold temperatures and offer a burst of color in y our winter garden. The scientific name for these delicate treasures is Violax W ittrockiana. These plants look extremely delicate but actually they are fairly hardy in regards to cold temperatures. They are used in many different applications including window boxes, flowerbed borders, hanging baskets, strawberry jars and pots. P ansies can grow anywhere from 6 to 9 inches and have a spread of about 9 to 12 inches. P ansies are available in many colors including white, yellow, gold, bronze, rose and combinations of the above listed colors. Pansies will grow in a variety of different soils but using a rich, dark planting medium like Mir acle Gro will greatly enhance the plant quality. Yo ur plants will do best in an area that gets some direct sunlight. If the plants are in too much shade, they will grow tall and spindly. Although Pansies are fairly trouble free, there are some insects that you need to watch for. In our area, aphids can be the biggest problem along with snails. Aphids can be treated with Orthenex and snails can be treated with any brand of snail and slug control pellets. In conclusion, Pansies should not be planted in the same soil for more than three consecutive years. Another very popular winter treat is an interesting looking plant called the Snapdragon. Snapdragons are one of natures examples of splashing color and style. These colorful gems come in a wide assortment of colors and varieties and they only available in our area during the winter months. They are indeed a winter treat. The flowers have a soft scent and the plants themselves come in a var iety of sizes from dwarf var ieties to some that will grow as high as four feet. S ince Snapdragons produce the most blooms during cool weather, right now is the best time to purchase and plant your colorful flowers. S napdragons are easy to grow and do well in partial shade or sun during the cooler months of January and February. Place your plants in an area of your yard that drains well and is not completely shaded. Be sure to use a high quality potting mix such as Mir acle Gro so your plants can get a good start and also the plants will drain w ell. Using a good quality potting soil also has the advantage of promoting good drainage while r etaining just enough moisture so your plants do not dry out as easily between watering. You should fertilize your plants on a regular basis, at least once every two w eeks. Use a good quality water-soluble fertilizer such as Miracle Gro or P eters.

The production will take place at 7 p.m. on Feb. 22 and at 2 and 7 p.m. on Feb. 23 in the Waxlax Center for the Performing Arts on the S aint Edwards campus, 1895 Saint Edwards Drive, in Vero Beach. This is the second full production of a Shakespearian work at the school. I love being able to bring live performances of Shakespeare to the students of this school and the community, said Maggie Baker, director. T oo often people were introduced to Shakespeare in a rather dry classroom setting and never had the chance to experience the work as it was meant to be a live stage production full of power, energy, humor and characters that we can identify with. The swordplay in the production offers special excitement for the audience. Romeo and Juliet has several extremely demanding fight sequences said Jer emy Baker, production designer and fight director. W e began stage combat r ehearsals before the winter break was even over and the students are taking on the challenge with the usual S aint Edwards School spirit and determination. They know these fights have to look incredibly realistic and dangerous while at the same time being perfectly safe for all involved. The cast of Romeo and J uliet includes Saint E dwards seniors Hayden W alsh as Romeo, Megan C ook as Juliet, Caroline P etty as Lady Capulet and Ca ra Br uggeman as the N urse. Also included in the cast are Cassidy Layton as Mercutio, Karissa Mokoban as T ybalt, Jake Corvino as C apulet, Dirk Pfeifle as Pa ri s, D aniel Jutras as Friar Lawrence, Maggie Barry as Lady Montague and Andreea Scridon and Birna Her disardottir as servants Gregory and Sampson. M embers of the technical crew for the production include stage manager Nar issa Agustin, as well as T iff and Tot Campbell, M ackenzie Marsocci and H illary Smith. Faculty members Jeremy Baker and Dr Daniel Koh will also appear in stage roles. R omeo and Juliet has everything; love, humor, danger, tragedy and healing. It is a play for all times and undoubtedly a play for our times. Whether you are a Shakespeare lover, a fan of dueling or romance, or just looking for superior family entertainment, this production is sure to please. A udiences of all ages are w elcome to the state-of-theart, 800-seat Waxlax Center for the Performing Arts located on the Saint E dwards School campus at 1895 Saint Edwards Drive. T ickets are $5 for students and seniors $10 for adults.

One of the categories I enjoy exploring most at the PGA Merchandise Show is accessories. Fr om swing aids, to new drinks to things that keep y ou cool, these are the most diverse bunch of items to discover. In F lorida there is hardly a time when you dont need some way to stay cool on the course or even working around the house of in the yard. Polar Basics Cool Gear (www.polarbasics.com) is just the thing we need. U sing Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) technology in a line of hats, beanies, instant cooling towels and beach gear Polar Basics is able to keep you cool when the heat is one. Simply wet the item, wring out the excess water and put it on for hours of cooling. I tried one of the towels and found it works wonderfully on the course between shots. You can use it to wipe y our face or cover your head or wrap around the back of y our neck. It instantly dissipates heat and brings y our temperature down. One thing that Im guilty of is not reapplying sunscreen. I forget that it will burn or wipe off over time. S unscreen Bands (www.sunscreenbands.com) are a great new product. When you apply your sunscreen, you also apply it to the band. R emove a piece of backing to expose the adhesive and put it around your wrist. As y our sunscreen wears off, the band changes color to alert you when its time to r eapply. This is especially effective in reminding children and adults who often get too distracted or busy to notice that theyre burning. F or those of us that use a push or pull cart and are tired of stopping to clean the dirt off our clubs, the Cadet by G lobal Golf Industries ( www.globalgolfind.com) is a great new product. The C adet attaches directly to the wheel of the pull or push cart for easy hands-free operation. A detachable and r eplaceable brush slips on and spins while you walk allowing you to use that to quickly clean your club after every shot. Arc Angel by Frogger Golf ( www.froggergolf.com ) is a great new putting aid. The two pieces fold down to easily fit into your golf bag. When used they allow you to attach the shaft of a club or an alignment stick to create y our putter path and hone y our stroke. We v e all spent time on the r ange hitting balls. Many of us love to use our driver, trying to perfect the long ball. How often have you broken or lost a tee or six while doing this? What you may need is The-O-RingGolf (www.the-o-ringgolf.com). This new and innovative product is designed to be used at any r ange and with the first use y ou will see its benefits. It anchors a reusable r ubber-like tee right into the ground, allowing you to practice longer, harder and better, without having to find a tee after every shot. I was amazed at how simple it is to use and how effectively it worked. Golfers spend a lot of time on their feet, and keeping those feet happy is a great way to a better golf game. K entWool Socks ( www.kentwoolsocks.com ) make use of wool to create a breathable, durable, stretchable sock that makes walking a joy. The line comes in six different styles for men and women. Bubba Watson liked them so much he wore K entWool Socks for all 74 holes to capture his first Green jacket at The Masters last year. Golfer Aid ( www.golferaid.com) is not an energy drink. It is a s ynergy drink. Filled with honest and effective amounts of vitamins and supplements specifically designed to aid the golfers body and mind from the first tee to the last.

Credit card payment option for city services coming to SebastianSEBASTIAN Payment for some city services can soon be paid for with the swipe of a plastic card. Du r ing the Jan. 23 Sebastian City C ouncil meeting, City Manager Al M inner announced an outside company will bring the credit card payment service option for the first time in the city's history. The exact date for the credit card processing services to begin was not available at press time, but is expected to be sometimes in Febr uary, city staff said. C urrently, the city services are paid for on a cash basis, Mr. Minner said. When people come to city hall to purchase a cemetery plot, building permits, or other city services, they will soon have the option to pay with a credit card and incur a small convenience fee of $2.95, said Ken K ilgore, city finance director. So me small services, such as garage sale permits, probably wouldn't be worth using credit cards, because they are already such a nominal fee, he said. Ga r age sale permits are only $2, so unless a customer was desperately in need of using a credit card, adding the $2.95 convenience fee 771437 052060Explore these majestic bomber aircraft inside and out.Feel the engines power up and take to the skies in an amazing 30-minute Flight Experience!

The one-year-old stray female Maltese/poodle mix arrived at the animal shelter on Nov. 26 courtesy of I ndian River County animal control. She was diagnosed with paralysis in her back legs, but her condition was not so severe that the veterinarians on staff gave up hope. Dr Lyndall Soule said B uffy still possessed the ability to feel some pain in her rear paws, so she decided to see if acupuncture would make a difference and possibly help her walk Cliff Partlow /staff photographerL yndall Soule, a veterinarian at the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County, holds Emmylou, a one-year-old stray terrier mix brought to the HSVB with paralyzed hind legs. With the help of acupuncture, Dr. Soule was able to get Emmylou's back legs working again.

When it comes to V alentine's Day, local businesses can help you get a clue. On the outside, Valentine's Day is perfect roses and dainty chocolates, but behind the scenes, planning a special romantic interlude on your own can mean pricked fingers and a distinctly burnt kitchen smell. Luckily, every town has some professionals who can help pick out and plan the perfect way to say "I love you" and they have some advice to share. No 1 is to plan ahead, don't let a special date sneak up on you. J udy and Richard Pinkman, owners of How Sw eet It Is antiques and chocolate shop in Vero B each, said for most people, chocolates are a huge hit, but with time, people can take it a step further by customizing the chocolate to fit the person and the occasion. F or a real chocoholic, a box of assorted chocolates may not be enough, but, when the box made of 1.5 pounds of milk or dark chocolate itself, that gift could be just right Ms. Pinkman said. P eople like Ms. Pinkman and others in industries where gifts, especially V alentine's Day gifts are often purchased always have anecdotes to share about the sweet, silly and scary parts of past Valentine's Day experiences.

Last week, a human visitor from Vermont spotted a ra re winged visitor from the Ca r ibbean checking out the swimming holes at the nation's first and oldest wildlife refuge, and birders from around the state and country are coming out to the refuge to catch a glimpse, said refuge staff. The white-cheeked pintail, also known as a Bahama pintail, is a species of dabbling duck rarely found this far north, and refuge visitor Donald H. Miller spotted the duck swimming and feeding with other ducks in the man-made pond located near the Centennial Trail, said Kevin Lowry, refuge r anger. The duck is primarily found in the Caribbean, S outh America and the G alapagos Islands, so to see it this far north is quite surprising and exciting, drawing people from far distances to see it for themselves, Mr. Lowry said. "A large number of wildlife can be spotted on the refuge y ear round, including various birds and waterfowl, bobcats, raccoons and other F lorida creatures," he said.

The acupuncture did more than help her regain some mobility, "B uffy is now racing around," said Janet W inikoff, education director for the animal shelter. When Buffy came to the shelter, she was incontinent but the therapy has given her the ability to feel again and can be housebroken, making her even more adoptable. "S he has exceeded all of the goals I had for her r ecovery and still continues to make progress with once a week acupuncture treatments," Dr. Soule said in an email. "B uffy's future has no boundaries. She is now able to navigate small stairs and acts self-sufficient when she achieves a task which has previously not been within her powers of mobility," the veterinarian said. This is not the first time Dr Soule has used acupuncture therapy on shelter animals, but it doesn' t make the results less emotional and special. "(Seeing) Buffy walk down the hall carrying her favorite toy, which is as big as she is, brought tears to my eyes," Dr. Soule said. B uffy is available for adoption, Ms. Winikoff said. H er future adoptive family should know that she is likely to need follow-up tune up" acupuncture treatments and requires r egular activity such as walks or swimming with a life vest in warm water for therapy.

in, he was looking for ideas because he wanted to propose on Valentine's Day and he wanted something chocolate to put the engagement ring in," Ms. Pinkman said. "H e put the ring inside the 1.5 pound chocolate heart box along with the assorted chocolates and he got a yes. They came in the store later together and they were such a cute couple. It was really special," Ms. Pinkman said. F or florists, Valentine's D ay means hours and hours of designing arrangements to order and a very small window of time to deliver them, but even when they have high volumes of product to work with, they work with customers to give them the best and positive shopping experience possible. K athy Shain, a floral designer at Artistic First F lorist in Vero Beach, said she has so many crazy V alentine's Day stories it's hard to even remember them all. D efinitely ordering ahead of time is the best plan, but sometimes even the best laid plans can go haywire, she said. A unique experience that is forever engraved into her memory is a cold, snowy Fe b. 14 when she worked up north. A customer ordered red roses to be delivered to a woman, and when the driver got to the r ecipient's house, he immediately left to make another delivery, but it wasn't roses. The woman was pregnant and needed to get to the hospital to deliver the baby and it was snowing and it was going to be awhile before someone else could come and get her, so he took her to the hospital and she had a baby girl. The lady got quite a few roses that Valentine's Day as you can imagine, but the delivery man quit a few days after that. He wanted no part of doing that again," Ms. Shain said with a chuckle. F lorists do have a small number of women that come and order gift baskets, balloon bouquets or even flower bouquets for the men in their life on V alentine's Day, but 98 percent of the time it's men buying for women, said Ms. S hain. S ome advice for those male shoppers would be to think about what their ladies like, and where they are going to receive their gift. T eddy bears are soft, cuddly and can be a sweet thing to receive from a sweetheart, but trying to send a 6-foot teddy bear in a flower delivery truck with a dozen vased roses to a workplace with a tiny desk is a little difficult logistically, although the visual impact is tremendous, Ms. Shai n said. Once, a man came in with a very serious and determined look on his face to get a Valentine's Day arrangement for his wife. "T he year before he bought her a red Eureka v acuum cleaner, so this y ear, he had to do something extra-special. We told him, it was the right color, but the wrong day to give it,'" Ms. Shain said. Ad ding soft rose petals to a dinner table, bedroom or bathroom automatically r amps up the romantic atmosphere of a location. "G uys will come in, and they don't know how to ask for what they want, so we try to help them, but we're all women in here and we can just watch them turn blood-red," she said. Artistic First Floral has partnered with other local businesses in the community to help guys make their V alentine's Day shopping quick and easy. "W e' ve tried to make it one stop shopping so they don't have to run to 20 places to get 20 things," said Alyssa Hiser. Pa r tnerships with businesses such as Classy Cupcakes, Mark's at the Pointe S alon and Boutique, Longevity Ladies fitness and spa and new Vero B each bakery, Patisserie, mean more options for personalizing a gift, she said. F or out of the ordinary V alentine's Day gifts, All Thru the House in Vero B each has a large selection of unique gifts and art pieces for the home, as well as jewelry, which is a popular and greatly appreciated gift for women, store staff said. The most important part of a Valentine's Day gift for most women, however, is not the size of the arrangement, the quantity of chocolates or the fuzziness of a teddy bear. The biggest thing that women say when they call us to thank us is that they can't believe he took the initiative to do something," Ms. Shain said. They just love that he r emembered, thought about it, did something and did it on time for them. That's the biggest thing," she said.

Nearly 500 students from all over Indian River County, participates in the annual event. Alex McLaughlin, a fifth-grade student at Pelican Island Elementary, explains how kernels of popcorn pop when stored in different temperatures to judge Alan Korn. A way outW ell, after seeing the population of Fort Pierce at 37,500 and the poverty level at 32 percent makes you think. Just what are these people thinking after the election? Y ou do have a split in the economy. Those who have, and those that run to the government for assistance. The haves are the well to-dos. They have an education. They applied their brains to learning so they could have nicer wealth in life. There's a big difference with that mentality. The ones who just get by do not want to apply themselves to their o wn wellbeing. And that's a crying shame. I've been homeless, and have been helped by my friends to get myself out of my situation with success. So for those who just want to sit at home and get frustrated because yo u' re dependent upon the government for assistance, there's a way out of that dilemma. It's called get out and apply yourself. Don't be part of the problem, create your o wn destiny. It made me sick to see those poverty numbers. The only excuse those people have is plain laziness. America was brought up on self-reliance. People who are well-to-do earned it. They owe nothing to those people who are just down-right lazy. That's the difference between the well-todo and the ones who are uneducated, and it's never too late to apply yourself. The facts?R eading a report from "American progress" as suggested by the writer is certainly not the place to go for factual information. Y our editor's note sounds like it was printed off their w ebsite. Anyone who reads or follows politics knows that The Center for American Progress is not independent, nor is it nonpartisan. It is a leftist group supporting socialistic and Democratic Party issues. No problem there, and the r ight have their support organizations as well. Just tell it like it is. No smoke and mirrors. Thanks.A wake up callThis is a response to the CWA Local 3181 from a long time N.J. Union Contractor now retired in Florida. You need a wakeup call. First, the public employees union is a blanket on top of Civil Service. Secondly, the public employees' unions are coddled by the politicians for their PA C money and votes, not for possible losses in production or shutdown. Thirdly, you are never sent home when there is no work; get vacation pay and sick leave, something the trade union's members do not get unless they paid for it. Fourthly, trade union members do not get medical benefits or pension credits unless they work a certain number of hours each year, and when they retire some have to pay up to a $1,000 a month for medical when they r etire. How much will you pay? Their pension funds are always at risk, unlike yours. I am sure you can show anyone who will listen that your hourly pay is less than a similar a buildings trade's member, for the same job. But if you compare both over the lifetime of service, you are way ahead. So in closing, if I were you, I would keep a low profile before your employer (the taxpayers) realize when I and other Union contractors were done with a trade union employee, I was done, unlike the taxpayers who, after hiring you, have to pay you until you die and in some cases, even after you die. In short, your letter was an insult to all the trade union people who go home tired and dirty every day. Defending the tax codeThe tax code has few defenders these days. It's too complicated, expensive and onerous. It drives companies overseas. It discourages savings. It penalizes growth. It's almost as if it were written by our enemies rather than by our socalled representatives.The president's jobO ur president was elected to provide leadership. So far, we are proceeding from one crisis to another. Rather than strategic planning, this country is lurching back and forth. This is not leadership. It is failure. It's not what he was elected to do.Debt on top of debtTo keep the ship afloat, President Obama is piling on debt on top of an already record-breaking debt. It grows each and every day. A recent calculation is $10,596,768,009,341.49. That's $90,000 for every household in the United States. Are you prepared to pay your $90,000?Wishful thinkingPr esident Obama believes we can spend ourselves rich. F at chance of that happening. His wishful thinking is a disaster for this country. We can't keep giving "stuff" to people. R eferring to the so-called safety net where government helps out people who are temporarily down on their luck, C ongressman Paul Ryan says, "I don't want to see government turn the safety net into a hammock."About gunsT ake guns away from law abiding people and who will be safer? Ask Byron Lee, owner of a pharmacy near Fresno, C alifornia. When two masked men entered his store and started firing, Lee returned fire, killing one. Police captured the other. The local police chief stated, "This individual, having a gun, absolutely saved his life. Why do politicians want the government to ban private gun o wnership?"Regarding FEMAThe Federal Emergency Management Agency says that it has been losing money for years and admits that it has no plans to change policies or procedures. It's called "insurance" but what it really amounts to is a giant subsidy for a special group of property owners. We will always suffer damage from hurricanes. If congress wants to find ways to cut spending, it need look no further than FEMA.Excessive spendingPr esident Obama refuses to concede the obvious, but other Democrats are starting to acknowledge that the government's excessive spending and borrowing is heading us toward a dramatic day of reckoning. Even Erskine Bo wles, a liberal investment banker, is now an unlikely itinerant preacher on the urgency of dealing with the deficit. "The fiscal path we are on today is simply not sustainable," he says. "The deficits that we are incurring on an annual basis are like a cancer, and they are truly going to destroy this country from within unless we have the common sense to do something about it. We face the most predictable economic crisis in history." Wise men will listen. 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. It' s official we live in the future. My birthday was a while back and as a gift my father gave me an iPhone. And after using it for a while, I have to say I'm stunned at the level of technology we have in the palm of our hands today and that we take it for granted. I'm sure at this point some of you reading this may be thinking "He's writing about a phone? This is a computer column. What does this have to do with computers?" And I'll answer by saying that calling this device a phone" is like calling my laptop an "adding machine." The fact of the matter is that by carrying an iPhone, you are pretty much carrying around a full blown computer in your pocket. "B ut it's so small" Ye s, it is small, but don't let its size fool you. I'm not going to go into technical things like processor speed or memory, but I am going to r amble on a bit about how easy it is to use and just a couple of the things it can do. B ut before I begin, I want to clarify a few points in an effort to avoid coming off like a raving Apple "fan boy" gushing about how superior A pple products are. No w, I'm no strangers to hand-held computers, PDA's (personal digital assistants) or smart phones. I started carrying a Palm 3 PDA back in 1998 and have gone through a half a dozen smart phones of different makes and models over the last 10 y ears, and every one of them promised to give me the same abilities and tools that I use regularly on full sized computers. Things like email, web browsing, contact management and the like that are effortless on a full-sized personal computer, the smart phones that I have used in the past have all promised that they could handle it. But in reality, getting them to work has always been an exercise in frustration. I've tried Palm based phones, Blackberries, W indows Mobile and others and (aside for sending and r eceiving occasional text messages) have found most smart phones to be just glorified phones the advanced features were always more trouble than they were worth, and I expected the same level of frustration with the iPhone. Bo y, was I wrong! This thing is probably the easiest piece of technology that I've ever used and it does what it says it can do with a practically zero "frustration factor." Right out of the box, I was able to instantly (and easily!) connect to my wireless network at home to avoid r unning up data charges through my cell phone provider while I played with some of the features that make this device more a computer than a phone. I was able to get online immediately and (within seconds) was doing Google searches and even looking at my neighborhood with Google street view. I was able to effortlessly gain access to my email and didn't even have to squint to read it! And then I discovered the A pp Store. Logging into the App Store is like being unleashed in a candy store. I was able to find hundreds of free apps (programs that run on the phone) and most of the apps that caught my eye that aren't free were cheap enough to not break the bank if I decided to download them. Programs like GPS and translator programs download instantly, and r eally increase the phone's functionality. They are easy to find, easy to get and easy to use. The list goes on and on and I find that the more apps I load into this thing, the more I rely on it more than my laptop when I'm out in the field. No w, I know that some of y ou reading this today may be carrying some other type of smart phone like an Android (never tried one) or one of the newer Blackberries (the one I carried was one of the first ones) and may be thinking Why is this guy going on about the iPhone when I can do all this on my phone?" I will admit to not having tried them all. But if the iPhone is any indication as toCan almost carry a computer in a pocket COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY See COMPUT E, A8 Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

While the city will not be charged for the machinery and training on the system, customers will be charged a convenience fee of $2.95 for the first $100 payment, and $2 for every $100 increment after that, a city memo said.

The 16th annual holiday citrus sale raised $25,000, the largest amount raised by this event to date, even though event logistics changed this year and all orders were placed at the U nited Way Center over a two week period in November. R usty Banack of Quality Fr uit Packers and Scott Lambeth of Golden River Fr uit Company, have organized and executed this annual sale since its founding. "W e' ve found this to be a great way for the agricultural community to give back," said Mr. Lambeth. Na v al oranges and ruby r ed grapefruit were donated to fill more than 800 orders from residents sending the fruit to friends and family. Local growers and packers involved include: Fellsmere Fa rm s, Green River Packing, Golden River Fruit Company, Hogan & Sons, IMG Citru s, I ndian River Exchange P ackers, LeRoy Smith, Oslo Citrus Growers Association, Pr emier Citrus Packers, The P ackers of Indian River, Q uality Fruit Packers of I ndian River, Riverfront Groves and United Indian River Packers. "W e are all aware of people in need in this community and are happy to join in and do our part," said Mr. B anack. "We have so many r eturn buyers at this sale," said United Way's Faith Frazier. "Our snowbirds especially like to share some F lorida sunshine with their loved ones. We can't thank our agricultural community enough." Mr. Banack and Mr. Lambeth are also organizing the 27th annual United Way Citr us golf tournament which will be held March 2 at the Ve ro B each Country Club. S ponsorships are available.

The size of the tour group is limited because the tour is given on the nature trails of the refuge, and the group is transported to various locations on the refuge by r iding in two "e-trams," or electric trolleys similar to golf carts. "O ne of the bonuses of the e-trams is that they are quiet and less of a disturbance to wildlife, making them perfect to carry passengers who still want to spy a bird on the wing, or a creature in its natur al habitat," Mr. Lowry said. The tours are booked solid through March, but Mr. Lowry hopes to open up more dates next fall. Gregory and Sandi Marino signed up for the Jan. 30 tour before Christmas last year and say the tour was well worth the wait. Early in the morning, before the sunshine was at its maximum strength, the tour group loaded onto the e-tram and saw a couple of the walking trails on the refuge, called J oe Michael and Centennial, and viewed Pelican Island proper from an observation tower. The boardwalk leading up to the observation tower was quite impressive, Mr. and Mrs. Marino said. The entire length of the boardwalk, which gradually inclines to 18 feet, is inscribed with the names and dates of other national wildlife refuges in the U.S. and its territories, providing a fascinating read on the way up, they said. The Marinos liked their experience so much they are looking into volunteering at the refuge, something that is desperately needed, Mr. Lowry said. "U nlike the national parks system, of which Sebastian I nlet State Park is one, the national wildlife refuges staffing budget doesn't allow for a ranger to be onsite all the time to handle guest relations," he said. "Volunteers trained by the ranger can do so much to enhance the exper ience of guests coming to the r efuge, showing them the best spots to find certain animals, describing the landscape or even talking about the creation and history of the r efuge." P elican Island, originally a 5.2 acre island in the Indian River Lagoon, was set apart for wildlife in 1903 after local r esident Paul Kroegel's brave defense of the nesting birds on the island caught the ear of then-President Teddy Roosevelt. The birds were being shot and their feathers were being sold to make fashionable hats for women in both Europe and the U.S. "A t one point, the feathers we re being sold on the black market for three times their w eight in gold," Mr. Lowry said. Mr. Kroegel would defend the island against ships of men seeking the feathers with his shotgun, protecting the lives of the animals on land that didn't even belong to him, Mr. Lowry shared on the tour. After the island was made a r efuge, Mr. Kroegel was made the first refuge manager. And he was paid by the Audubon S ociety $1 each month to continue protecting the island, risking his life every day against the "feather hunters." P eople interested in volunteering are always welcome to contact Mr. Lowry at (772) 581-5557, ext. 5.

Sebastian River Area 046839 Out & about SEBASTIAN There are few restaurants that I have visited that make you look forward to your next visit after the first bite. S ea Jasmine Thai Restaur ant, 971 Sebastian Blvd., is a restaurant tucked into a shopping plaza and opened in April 2012. The restaurant is family r un by Scott McLeod and his mother Pann McLeod. The inspiration for most of the dishes in the restaur ant is from Mr. McLeod's grandfather and Ms. M cLeod's father, Sea. "I r emember growing up I saan [in Thailand]," Ms. M cLeod said. "My father made all kinds of foods and I remember always being surrounded by the jasmine gardens." The family restaurant makes you feel like family as you dine on dishes including chicken, beef, fresh fish and even duck. The fresh ingredients jump off the plate and are hand chosen by Mr. M cLeod, who cooks all of the dishes with the care of cooking for his family. "I only use my freezer for the ice cream," said Mr. M cLeod. "Everything I use is fresh and we make everything here, even the noodles, sauces and chosen by me including the salmon, grouper and tilapia." I mmediately I was surprised with the first course of the meal, a watermelon and cilantro soup. It is a must try at the restaurant and prepares you for the feast of the other dishes. The soup was made for Ms. M cLeod by her father when she was young. F or an appetizer, Mr. M cLeod recommended the Thai fish cake, which was loaded with salmon and crispy on the outside. A cucumber dressing completed the dish. F or the main course, I had the roasted Peking duck stir-fry over a generous portion of greens including sprouts, baby corn, peas and more crisp and fresh vegetables, all tossed in a house red curry sauce. The dish was served with a helping of jasmine r ice. B ite after bite, the curry sauce complemented the tender duck. My companion enjoyed the ginger chicken stir-fry and each plate was finished to the last bit of rice. The Thai iced tea was delicious before and during the meal, but toward dessert I changed to the lemon grass and ginger tea and fell in love. The fresh drink was a perfect palate cleanser and delightful to the taste buds. M ake sure to leave room for dessert or the experience of Sea Jasmine will not be complete. I had a sampling of all the desserts, from the deep fried banana, flash fried after being wrapped in rice paper and then drizzled with honey, to the sweet r ice with mango which was light yet more than satisfying. My favorite is a new addition to their expanding menu, which was the vanilla ice cream with walnuts and tapioca pearls. The restaurant is constantly expanding its menu, now including a lunch menu filled with delicious dishes and great prices. R estaurant hours are from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday for lunch, and from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for dinner. It's closed on Sundays.

VERO BEACH Living pieces of World War II history will touchdown at the Ve ro B each Municipal Airport on Feb. 13 for the W ings of Freedom tour. Ve ro B each will be one of 110 cities in the Wings of Fr eedom tour produced by the nonprofit Collings F oundation and visitors to the municipal airport can see, experience, and even fly in, a restored plane that carried out wartime missions more than half a century ago. The Boeing B-17 Flying Fo rt r ess "Nine O Nine" WWII heavy bomber, the consolidated B-24 Liberator "Witchcraft" WWII heavy bomber, and the P51C Mustang fighter will fly into Vero Beach on Feb. 13 and fly out on Feb. 15, and members of the public are invited to come out and be educated about the rare planes and their history, said Hunter Chaney, director of marketing for the C ollings Foundation. These are arguably the greatest aircraft in history," Mr. Chaney said. Eric Menger, airport director, said the tour will be held at Sun Aviation on 3400 Cherokee Drive in Ve ro B each. These will be airplanes that are 60 years old or older and they're in tremendous shape," Mr. M enger said. Ve ro B each has historically been an aviationfriendly community, with the airport serving as a naval base in the early 1940s, and many people in the area are WWII veterans, others are pilots and many people are fascinated by flight, he said. T ickets to the event are $12 for adults and $6 for children younger than 12. WWII veterans can tour the aircraft at no cost, Mr. Chaney said. D iscounted rates are available for school groups. T our times are available from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Fe b. 13; 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 14; and 9 a.m. to noon on Feb. 15. The planes are expected to take off to their next city location after 12 p.m. The B-17 plane is one of only eight planes of its kind still flying in the U.S., and the B-24 and the P-51C M ustang, a full dual control model, are the only r emaining examples of their type flying in the world, a press release said. After the war, many of the planes were scrapped for their raw aluminum, so there aren't many examples left accessible to people to see, Mr. Chaney said. The Collings Foundation's mission is organizing living history events in order for people to learn about history and heritage in a more hands-on and active approach, ultimately heightening the experience and potentially creating a love and interest in learning more, Mr. Chaney said. "I t' s one of the finest examples of edu-tainment out there," he said. T ickets to fly in the aircraft, and even to fly one of them are also available. F lights on either the B-17 or the B024 are $425 per person for approximately a half-hour experience. The opportunity to fly the P-51 is available for $2,200 for a half-hour, or $3,200 for a full hour. Flights take place before and after tours.

With the colder winter weather upon us and the possibility of intermittent freezing temperatures, we want to plant annuals that will need minimal care during these cold snaps. P ansies are an excellent choice as they tolerate the cold temperatures and offer a burst of color in y our winter garden. The scientific name for these delicate treasures is Violax W ittrockiana. These plants look extremely delicate but actually they are fairly hardy in regards to cold temperatures. They are used in many different applications including window boxes, flowerbed borders, hanging baskets, strawberry jars and pots. P ansies can grow anywhere from 6 to 9 inches and have a spread of about 9 to 12 inches. P ansies are available in many colors including white, yellow, gold, bronze, rose and combinations of the above listed colors. Pansies will grow in a variety of different soils but using a rich, dark planting medium like Mi r acle Gro will greatly enhance the plant quality. Yo ur plants will do best in an area that gets some direct sunlight. If the plants are in too much shade, they will grow tall and spindly. Although Pansies are fairly trouble free, there are some insects that you need to watch for. In our area, aphids can be the biggest problem along with snails. Aphids can be treated with Orthenex and snails can be treated with any brand of snail and slug control pellets. In conclusion, Pansies should not be planted in the same soil for more than three consecutive years. Another very popular winter treat is an interesting looking plant called the Snapdragon. Snapdragons are one of nature's examples of splashing color and style. These colorful gems come in a wide assortment of colors and varieties and they only available in our area during the winter months. They are indeed a winter treat. The flowers have a soft scent and the plants themselves come in a va r iety of sizes from dwarf va r ieties to some that will grow as high as four feet. S ince Snapdragons produce the most blooms during cool weather, right now is the best time to purchase and plant your colorful flowers. S napdragons are easy to grow and do well in partial shade or sun during the cooler months of January and February. Place your plants in an area of your yard that drains well and is not completely shaded. Be sure to use a high quality potting mix such as Mi r acle Gro so your plants can get a good start and also the plants will drain w ell. Using a good quality potting soil also has the advantage of promoting good drainage while r etaining just enough moisture so your plants do not dry out as easily between watering. You should fertilize your plants on a regular basis, at least once every two w eeks. Use a good quality water-soluble fertilizer such as Miracle Gro or P eters.

The production will take place at 7 p.m. on Feb. 22 and at 2 and 7 p.m. on Feb. 23 in the Waxlax Center for the Performing Arts on the S aint Edward's campus, 1895 Saint Edward's Drive, in Vero Beach. This is the second full production of a Shakespearian work at the school. "I love being able to bring live performances of Shakespeare to the students of this school and the community," said Maggie Baker, director. "T oo often people were introduced to Shakespeare in a rather dry classroom setting and never had the chance to experience the work as it was meant to be a live stage production full of power, energy, humor and characters that we can identify with." The swordplay in the production offers special excitement for the audience. "R omeo and Juliet has several extremely demanding fight sequences" said Je r emy Baker, production designer and fight director. "W e began stage combat r ehearsals before the winter break was even over and the students are taking on the challenge with the usual S aint Edward's School spirit and determination. They know these fights have to look incredibly realistic and dangerous while at the same time being perfectly safe for all involved." The cast of Romeo and J uliet includes Saint E dward's seniors Hayden W alsh as Romeo, Megan C ook as Juliet, Caroline P etty as Lady Capulet and Ca ra Br uggeman as the N urse. Also included in the cast are Cassidy Layton as Mercutio, Karissa Mokoban as T ybalt, Jake Corvino as C apulet, Dirk Pfeifle as Pa ri s, D aniel Jutras as Friar Lawrence, Maggie Barry as Lady Montague and Andreea Scridon and Birna He r disardottir as servants Gregory and Sampson. M embers of the technical crew for the production include stage manager Na r issa Agustin, as well as T iff and Tot Campbell, M ackenzie Marsocci and H illary Smith. Faculty members Jeremy Baker and Dr Daniel Koh will also appear in stage roles. R omeo and Juliet has everything; love, humor, danger, tragedy and healing. It is a play for all times and undoubtedly a play for our times. Whether you are a Shakespeare lover, a fan of dueling or romance, or just looking for superior family entertainment, this production is sure to please. A udiences of all ages are w elcome to the state-of-theart, 800-seat Waxlax Center for the Performing Arts located on the Saint E dward's School campus at 1895 Saint Edward's Drive.

One of the categories I enjoy exploring most at the PGA Merchandise Show is accessories. Fr om swing aids, to new drinks to things that keep y ou cool, these are the most diverse bunch of items to discover. In F lorida there is hardly a time when you don't need some way to stay cool on the course or even working around the house of in the yard. Polar Basics Cool Gear ( www.polarbasics.com ) is just the thing we need. U sing Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) technology in a line of hats, beanies, instant cooling towels and beach gear Polar Basics is able to keep you cool when the heat is one. Simply wet the item, wring out the excess water and put it on for hours of cooling. I tried one of the towels and found it works wonderfully on the course between shots. You can use it to wipe y our face or cover your head or wrap around the back of y our neck. It instantly dissipates heat and brings y our temperature down. One thing that I'm guilty of is not reapplying sunscreen. I forget that it will burn or wipe off over time. S unscreen Bands ( www.sunscreenbands.com ) are a great new product. When you apply your sunscreen, you also apply it to the band. R emove a piece of backing to expose the adhesive and put it around your wrist. As y our sunscreen wears off, the band changes color to alert you when it's time to r eapply. This is especially effective in reminding children and adults who often get too distracted or busy to notice that they're burning. F or those of us that use a push or pull cart and are tired of stopping to clean the dirt off our clubs, the Cadet by G lobal Golf Industries ( www.globalgolfind.com ) is a great new product. The C adet attaches directly to the wheel of the pull or push cart for easy hands-free operation. A detachable and r eplaceable brush slips on and spins while you walk allowing you to use that to quickly clean your club after every shot. Arc Angel by Frogger Golf ( www.froggergolf.com ) is a great new putting aid. The two pieces fold down to easily fit into your golf bag. When used they allow you to attach the shaft of a club or an alignment stick to create y our putter path and hone y our stroke. We 'v e all spent time on the r ange hitting balls. Many of us love to use our driver, trying to perfect the long ball. How often have you broken or lost a tee or six while doing this? What you may need is The-O-RingGolf ( www.the-o-ringgolf.com ). This new and innovative product is designed to be used at any r ange and with the first use y ou will see its benefits. It anchors a reusable r ubber-like tee right into the ground, allowing you to practice longer, harder and better, without having to find a tee after every shot. I was amazed at how simple it is to use and how effectively it worked. Golfers spend a lot of time on their feet, and keeping those feet happy is a great way to a better golf game. K entWool Socks ( www.kentwoolsocks.com ) make use of wool to create a breathable, durable, stretchable sock that makes walking a joy. The line comes in six different styles for men and women. Bubba Watson liked them so much he wore K entWool Socks for all 74 holes to capture his first Green jacket at The Masters last year. Golfer Aid ( www.golferaid.com ) is not an energy drink. It is a "s ynergy" drink. Filled with honest and effective amounts of vitamins and supplements specifically designed to aid the golfer's body and mind from the first tee to the last. The ingredients team to help y our focus, balance, power, endurance and flexibility. How does Golfer Aid do this? The ingredients mimic the effects of strengthbuilding hormones, increase blood flow to the brain, boost your endurance and stamina, improve vision and balance and promote joint health and flexibility. If after your round you prefer a slightly stronger drink then Whiskey Stones from Teroforma ( www.teroforma.com ) are just what y ou need. No one likes their adult beverage watereddown. These stones are made from a select variety of soapstone. Place them in the freezer a few hours before y ou wish to use them, then pull them out place in a glass and pour your favorite drink to where it just covers them and they will keep y our beverage cool and enjoyable for a prolonged time without scratching the glass or melting into your liquor. No w if you'll excuse me, I'm off to test my Whiskey S tones a bit more.
