Litters of unwanted puppies highlight need for fixing petsSEBASTIAN Sebastian City C ouncil members will review a new contract for the working waterfront project during the Mar ch 13 meeting. The city has been working with F ishermens Landing Sebastian, a nonprofit cooperative, to run the working waterfront facilities, but to keep the project moving forward at a faster pace, City Manager Al Minner believes a renegotiated lease would be in the best interest of both parties. A proposed new contract was brought before the council during the Feb. 27 meeting, but no decision was made because several council members sought changes before a final approval was given. In the proposal, the city would take oversight of the old Hurricane H arbor site, which houses a fish market and a small eatery, and has space for a museum or educational wing. The city would also take on the responsibility and costs of building a fish house, approximately $325,000, on the adjacent site for the fishermen to use when they bring in their catch.

On March 16, Vero Be ach will join the ranks of other cities across the nation as they host a C olor Me Rad 5k fundraising event, where the participants start off clean as a whistle and end up with more dustings of color than a rainbow. Already more than 2,500 participants have registered and the total number of registrants is expected to be close to 5,000, said Christie Johnson, spokeswoman for the S enior Resource Association. The fundraiser will benefit the Senior Resource Association of Indian River County, which is a nonprofit organization that provides services to the elderly in the community. Among its programs are adult daycare facilities, transportation and M eals on Wheels. This will be the biggest r ace in Indian River County, Ms. Johnson said. The race will be untimed and the focus will be on the fun and fitness aspects of the event, and the fun takes the form of about 5,000 pounds of colored cornstarch sprayed in the air and toward participants. Online pre-registration is required, and the cost per entrant is $45. To give a percentage of the registration fee to the Senior R esource Association and to receive a 10 percent discount on the race, individuals can use the promotion code SRA2013, a press release said.

SEBASTIAN Technically spring hasnt even sprung, but at a local animal rescue, the stork has already brought two litters of tiny puppies who need homes. In one box, five tan and white boys with their all white sister squirm together, literally in a good old fashioned dogpile, to stay warm and seek comfort from each other after only two weeks of being in this big new world. W ith their tiny soft ears just popping out, and their eyes not yet opened, its easy to fall in love with the little boxer-bull terrier mix puppies. Their mewling little cries and kicks at being separated from one another, and their constant mission to find something to eat is both precious and amusing to watch. The nonprofit Helping Animals Live and Overcome Rescue received the puppies when they were one day old and they have been bottle-fed around the clock since their arrival on V alentines Day, said J acque Petrone, owner. HALO Rescue is a no-kill, nonprofit animal shelter in S ebastian that accepts animals as space becomes available for them. The same day, an unwanted litter of six slightly older Chihuahua puppies were also brought in and are currently being fostered by a volunteer until they are old enough to be adopted, Ms. P etrone said. All of the Chihuahuas have been spoken for, as has the female boxer/bull terrier mix. P uppies and kittens are soft, cute and cuddly, but with every springtime, animal shelters like HALO have to brace themselves for the inevitable deluge of tiny four-legged animals. I t s not a myth, it really is true what they say about animals in springtime, Ms. Petrone said. And the sad thing is that these puppies and kittens, though adorable, are most often unplanned and therefore unwanted, and they are sent off to an animal shelter or left somewhere to fend for themselves. I t s not that I dont believe in puppies, I love them, but the whole process of people who dont fix their animals keeps the overpopulation going, Ms. Petrone said. M any people dont spay or neuter their pets because they think it costs hundreds of dollars, but that isnt always the case. HALO Rescue has a special spay and neuter voucher program in partnership with the Florida V eterinary League in Vero B each. All a pet owner has to do is come to the animal shelter and request a voucher and then they can set up an appointment with Florida Veterinary League, Ms. Petrone said. A bout 65 percent of the animals that come into the shelter are not fixed, Ms. P etrone said.By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.com See PUPPIES, A2INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Local, national and international baseball teams have already kicked up the red clay at Vero B each Sports Village this y ear, but next year the complex could be closed. The facility formerly known as Dodgertown has been leased from the county since 2009, first by M inor League Baseball, and in January 2012, the lease assignment was amended to Verotown, which includes MiLB and other partners, including former Los Angeles Dodgers president, Peter OMalley. In a letter to county administrator Joe Baird dated Feb.5, Craig Callan, vice president of Vero B each Sports Village, wrote that Verotown would not exercise their lease renewal option when the current lease expires in April 2014. In a memorandum to I ndian River County commissioners, county attorney Alan Polackwich said negotiations with Verotown been bogged down when agreements could not be reach on Verotowns liability for capital expenses, casualty insurance premiums and liquidated damages in the event the lease is broken before expiring.

There arent any prequalifying factors to the voucher program at HALO R escue because the mission of the shelter is to benefit the health of all animals, no matter their situation, she said. Being spayed or neutered can help a pet avoid major health issues such as testicular and ovarian cancer. C ats are $40 to spay, $30 to neuter, and dogs are $50-$60 to spay, depending on weight, or $40-$50 to neuter, again, based on w eight. HALO Rescue is located at 710 Jackson St.,Sebastian.

The fishermen would operate the fish house and pay a monthly r ent of $1 per month for the working waterfront. Mr. Minner said the city has applied for a grant to help pay for the cost of building the fish house, but grant awards arent r eleased until July at the earliest and there is no guarantee the city would get it. V ice Mayor Don Wright was concerned about the city getting into such a large financial obligation without being certain of help from a grant to pay for it all. C ouncilwoman Andrea Co y said she was concerned with a lease stipulation that allows the co-op to hold two special events without needing special city approval. I f the focus was for the fishermen to fish, then they wont need parties on site, she said. C ouncilman Jim Hill disagreed, stating that having special events on the working waterfront would bring more attention to the area, bringing in more tourism to the city. Rich Stringer, an attorney for the co-op, said the proposed lease was something the co-op could agree to quite willingly. A revised draft of the lease will be brought before the council on Mar ch 13. B efore the lease agreement is finalized, it will have to be approved by the F lorida Community Trust, the organization that organized the Stan Mayfield grant the city originally used to get started on the working waterfront project.

MANAGING EDITORDA WN KREBS have interest in significant losses, the letter said. Si nce 2009, the facility has yet to break even, but the losses have consistently been halved each year and the business model will work moving forward, Mr. C allan said in a previous interview. The lease stipulations in r enewal negotiations with the county would not, however, allow for the group to continue operating Vero B each Sports Village, Mr. C allan wrote. Mr. Polackwich was scheduled to present the letter for informational purposes and discussion during the March 5 county commission meeting, but the r esults of that presentation we re not available at press time. In late 2012, the nonprofit Tr easure Coast Sports Commission conducted an economic impact study about the sports facility. According to the study, the complex brought in $21.06 million to the area since December 2009. Last week, former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher H ideo Nomo, one of the Ver otown partners, was in Ve ro Beach to welcome the M eiji Universitys baseball team to the sports facility for spring training camp. M eiji University is one of the largest and most prestigious Japanese universities located in Tokyo, a press r elease said.

While I'm far r emoved from my college days, I still am able to learn. After watching the pros play at the Honda Classic, Im r eady for a final exam. N ot many of us can drive a ball over 300 yards, hit iron shots from 200 yards away to within a few feet of the hole and generally make playing this game look easy. While we may never accomplish these feats, we can still learn plenty by watching the games best players. The best place to start is on the practice range. Even before the pros leave the locker room they make sure they have dressed for the w eather. They put on a comfortable shirt; slacks that fit and shoes that wont kill their feet while walking a few miles. They also make sure to bring a sweater or r ain jacket if it looks like they may need one. Each player arrives well before his scheduled tee time. You wont see anyone r unning from the parking lot with one shoe on, the other in his hand, racing to the first tee. Nor will you spot a pro rushing his warm-up, hitting two or three quick drives and then pronouncing himself r eady. I was very impressed to see each player apply sunscreen before even beginning to get ready. The players made sure to protect every exposed part of their bodies. A few guys even w ear wide-brimmed hats to protect them from the sun. War m-ups for the practice r ound are different from those before a competitive r ound. On practice round days, the players are doing just that, practicing. Some may not even play the course. Instead, they are working on their swing. M any are trying out new equipment as the courses they play beginning this w eek in Florida are much different from those they have been playing on the w est coast. Some are trying to figure out which clubs they need in the bag or tweaking the clubs they have to fit these new conditions. Early in the week you will see many pros at the range with their instructors, working to perfect something. In Florida, with the high humidity and low altitude, the players will also get less distance with each club. They spend plenty of time figuring out how far they are hitting each club and their caddies take plenty of notes. When Thursday rolls around, practice is over. They are no longer trying to change or perfect something. Their goal is to get r eady to play and to know how their body is responding. Just like us, the pros have days where the ball simply doesnt want to go where they would like. The players are hoping to discover this during their warm-up, not when it will cost them valuable strokes. They begin their routine by stretching, slowly working their muscles, getting them ready for taking a swing. Most players take extra time to make sure that their backs are loose and limber. After making sure their bodies are ready to swing, they start off with short chips with a wedge to get their rhythm. After hitting a few dozen balls with a nice, easy, smooth swing, they begin to take full shots. The full swings start with a short iron. The pros will usually hit a slight fade, then a straight shot, followed by a slight draw. The idea is to see if all three are working or not. They often change their aiming point so they don't get fixated on one spot. Fr om there its on to the mid and then long irons. M ost pros hit their oddnumbered irons one day, their even-numbered the next. After finishing their irons, they pull out the heavy artillery. The fairway woods and then the driver follow. W atching how far and accurately they hit their long irons and woods with so little apparent effort is truly impressive. The pros will usually finish their warm-up with the clubs they feel they will use on the first hole or two. They may hit their driver one last time followed by their 7-iron. Now that the juices are flowing, the pros turn things down a notch and head to the practice green. Here they want to get the feel for the speed of the greens as w ell as some confidence heading into their round. They will also hit some chips and some bunker shots to get a feel for the condition of the rough and sand. Then its off to the first tee and the beginning of what they hope is a fantastic r ound of golf. It doesnt always turn out that way, but their routine seldom var ies. Y ou can learn a lot from professionals before they even hit the first tee. I certainly did.

Control the mosquitoesIs there still a mosquito control program? Anybody who dares to venture outside after dark is immediately attacked by the swarming pests. Some of the problem is r elated to the continued neglect of fixing the drainage ditches, allowing standing water to be prime breeding grounds. Once again, hurricane season is approaching and nothing has been done. Guess their priority of getting a paper shredder is more important than the safety and welfare of the community. Time to re-evaluate priorities. Unjust killingThe killing of the sheriff's deputy was unjustified Thursday morning. The officer was doing his duty, thats all. He didn't have to die for that. You didnt have to hurt his family because you did something dumb that morning. The excuse he gave for killing the officer while the officer sat in his patrol car is so lame. My prayers go out the family of Sgt. Morales. I pray that the Lord have mercy on the killer. F ree CubaWhat are the Sebastian and Indian River county Chambers of Commerce thinking? Instead of planning a trip to C uba using a special exemption issued by the Department of the Treasury, why aren't all Chambers across the country demanding that Obama remove the boycott on C uba thereby allowing all Americans to travel to and from this wonderful country? Why have we allowed this to go on for this long? The people of Cuba have been punished long enough! End the boycott and begin trading with Cuba now! An opinion on an opinionOnce again, the religious right, a.k.a. the "American Ta liban, voices disgust with anyone not of their absolutist faith. You cannot get away with saying, 'If you try to stop me from insulting homosexuals it violates my freedom of prejudice,' but you can get away with saying, 'It violates my freedom of religion.' Where is there a difference? Morality does not come from religion, it precedes it.T odays youthEv ery week I read your newspaper. Its a good paper to r ead. But when I get to the police report, I have to shake my head. I saw so many young people being arrested for things that they should know not to do. Not just males, but females, too. Are the parents talking to these young folks about life? Especially about the way they are dressing these days, with pants hanging down. Why don't they just put a belt on to keep them up? Then you might get a job from someone. And young ladies, put some clothes on. Come on parents, do your job. And leave those drugs alone, too. Get a real life and stop living off the system. Thats for everyone who is getting some type of help without working. I see so many young people want to get in the system, rather than get off of it.On illegalsThe problem of illegals needs to be addressed. F or me it comes down to denying reasons for illegals coming to our country. No free medical care and stringent proof that you are legally here to work. The idea that all who cross our border want to be citizens (promoted by the "way to citizenship") is a fallacy. They want to support their family in Mexico, and probably don't want to "wait in line" and learn what it takes to be a citizen. This I understand. In any swearing in ceremony, there seems to be majority who did it the hard way. A million troops on the borders and a wall will not solve the problem. Stop the benefits and cease trying to stop/apprehend illegals. They will be sent back and return tomorrow. Stop using incorrect termsThis is about the terminology in this country. If you are born in this country, you are not an African-American, you are an American of African heritage. If you are born in this country, you are not a Cuban-American, you are an American of Cuban heritage. Im sick and tired of the media separating the people of this country with their terminology. Its time we stopped using those terms. It makes me ill.Questioning ObamaObama appointed two devout Muslims to Homeland S ecurity. Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan and swore in Kareem Shora into Homeland Secur ity Advisory Council. (HSAC) Has anyone heard a new government official appointed as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant? Wasn't it devout Muslims who killed 13 at Fort Hood, and flew planes into the U. S. that killed thousands?Problem with ObamaCareOne in five companies with fewer than 500 employees say they are 'likely" or "very likely" to discontinue company provider insurance coverage within five years, a survey re vealed. Reason: The main provision of Obama Care will be implemented in 2014.L et Border Agents do their jobsI t's difficult for hard-working Americans to understand why our president is so anxious to have non-citizens come here and work for peanuts, taking our jobs. President Obama has issued a directive prohibiting ICE agents from "arresting illegal aliens solely on charges illegal entry and V isa overstay." What this means is he is ordering our border patrol not to do their job. He's putting American jobs at risk.F ull gun registration This year will go down in history for the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our lead into the future. Adolf Hitler, 1935. T o conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens. Thats anonymous. Also, ask our friends to the north, Canada. They had full gun registration, national registration. Ask them what happened to their weapons. While we are at it, I would like some answers from the Obama Administration from his place of employment before he came to the Oval Office, being Illinois, the state and Chicago. That is the most ruthless state in the nation as far as crime lets pin it down to Chicago they have the toughest gun laws in Chicago and Illinois than in any state. And their murder rate is the highest, bar none.Recycling senseW ould somebody please explain to me why I have to carefully sort my recycle items into two different colored bins when all they do when the truck picks up is to empty them both into the same section of the garbage truck? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Iwas backing up some data a while back to an external USB drive when I noticed a behavior that is not uncommon. As I began backing up the contents of a rather bloated folder, during the process I noticed the "estimated time r emaining" figure was jumping all over the place. It started out saying something like 48 minutes r emaining, and then jumped down to 30, 18 and then 11 minutes. Then I noticed the estimated time r emaining figure stayed at 11 minutes for more than an hour. The progress bar was moving slowly to the right, and just as I thought the file transfer was just about over, the progress bar jumped back about a third of the way across. As I watched, the number bounced around some, dropping from the incredibly high 25 million mark and dropping to more manageable numbers, such as 45 minutes, 28 and once again 11 minutes and there it stayed for another 45 minutes. I finally got fed up with watching and shut off the monitor, so I don't know when it actually finished. B ut when I came back to it in the morning, the file copy was complete, and it didn't take 48 years. B ut it got me thinking; what is this estimated time r emaining business all about, and can that figure ever be trusted? I've certainly seen that behavior before with other file copy operations, downloads from the internet, CD burning and other similar procedures, and I've always taken that number with a grain of salt, but that 25 million figure caught my attention. What is going on with this picture? W ell, in order to understand why that number fluctuates so wildly, it's necessary to keep in mind that, on any given computer, what's happening at any given moment is not necessarily the way things are going to happen in the next moment. So the "estimated" part of "estimated time remaining" is just that an estimate based on the conditions taken at that particular time slice. And what happens, from second to second, is those conditions are changing. Rapidly. What that means is when the computer starts a file transfer, it grabs hold of a chunk of data and looks to see how much bandwidth is available. Then it bases its estimate of how long it will take on that. B ut that estimate does not take into account things such as the overhead activity between the device and the computer, how much of the buffer is still available and lots of other technical things that are happening at the same time as the data transfer. Let me rephrase it like this: As soon as the file transfer starts, all the figures the computer based its' estimate on change, because of the way computers do things. What that boils down to is the estimated time for transfer is rarely accurate, because the conditions are constantly changing and can't be relied on, especially when it predicts that it will take 48 years. One question that is bound to come up is: "Is this strictly a Windows issue?" and to that I would have to say no. I've observed the same behavior on my Macs as well as my Windows boxes. So that, in a nutshell, is an explanation for the neveraccurate estimated time r emaining issue that I'm sure we've all experienced at one time or another. I would personally like to see them do away with the estimated time figure and just stick with a graphical progress meter. That would make a whole lot more sense than the arbitrary numbers we get now, and they are easier to read at a glance.

This process allows administrative staff to r emedy deficiencies and upgrade the quality of corr ectional programs and services.

The days of a library being filled with only old books, dusty shelves, a few patrons and poor lightning are long gone, and the library in Sebastian is a perfect example of the community hub public libraries have become. One of the popular ongoing programs at the North C ounty location is a seasonal film series. From the comfort of their chairs, residents gather at the library to visit historic and beautiful places and have a snack, all for free, thanks to the support of the Friends of the Library organization. The films are shown on Thursdays at 3 p.m. in the librarys large room and are about one hour long, said L ynn Walsh, president of the organization. Earlier this year, some of the films shown were about the Dominican Republic, T uscany, Alaska, Canada and Mexico. Three more films will be shown before the series is complete. March 14 will highlight the Netherlands, Cr uising France and Cr uising the Danube will be on March 21 and on Apr il 4, the final film will explore The Lost Fleet of C olumbus. The Friends of the Library have been organizing the films each year since 1983 and they have been quite successful, Ms. W alsh said. A ccording to a survey, people in Sebastian are very interested in videos that show the history and the exploration of Floridas lands, closely followed by travel videos that span the nations. E very year we struggle to find new films. The library purchases films and we preview them to see if they will work for us.

Litters of unwanted puppies highlight need for fixing petsSEBASTIAN Sebastian City C ouncil members will review a new contract for the working waterfront project during the Ma r ch 13 meeting. The city has been working with F ishermen's Landing Sebastian, a nonprofit cooperative, to run the working waterfront facilities, but to keep the project moving forward at a faster pace, City Manager Al Minner believes a renegotiated lease would be in the best interest of both parties. A proposed new contract was brought before the council during the Feb. 27 meeting, but no decision was made because several council members sought changes before a final approval was given. In the proposal, the city would take oversight of the old Hurricane H arbor site, which houses a fish market and a small eatery, and has space for a museum or educational wing. The city would also take on the responsibility and costs of building a fish house, approximately $325,000, on the adjacent site for the fishermen to use when they bring in their catch. The idea behind the new lease, which is currently laid out for 20City to run old restaurant site in proposed contractW orking waterfront lease could be revised 772165ITS YOUR LUCKY DAY TO SAVE!

On March 16, Vero Be ach will join the ranks of other cities across the nation as they host a "C olor Me Rad" 5k fundraising event, where the participants start off clean as a whistle and end up with more dustings of color than a rainbow. Already more than 2,500 participants have registered and the total number of registrants is expected to be close to 5,000, said Christie Johnson, spokeswoman for the S enior Resource Association. The fundraiser will benefit the Senior Resource Association of Indian River County, which is a nonprofit organization that provides services to the elderly in the community. Among its programs are adult daycare facilities, transportation and M eals on Wheels. This will be the biggest r ace in Indian River County," Ms. Johnson said. The "race" will be untimed and the focus will be on the fun and fitness aspects of the event, and the fun takes the form of about 5,000 pounds of colored cornstarch sprayed in the air and toward participants. Online pre-registration is required, and the cost per entrant is $45. To give a percentage of the registration fee to the Senior R esource Association and to receive a 10 percent discount on the race, individuals can use the promotion code "SRA2013," a press release said.

SEBASTIAN Technically spring hasn't even sprung, but at a local animal rescue, the stork has already brought two litters of tiny puppies who need homes. In one box, five tan and white boys with their all white sister squirm together, literally in a good old fashioned dogpile, to stay warm and seek comfort from each other after only two weeks of being in this big new world. W ith their tiny soft ears just popping out, and their eyes not yet opened, it's easy to fall in love with the little boxer-bull terrier mix puppies. Their mewling little cries and kicks at being separated from one another, and their constant mission to find something to eat is both precious and amusing to watch. The nonprofit Helping Animals Live and Overcome Rescue received the puppies when they were one day old and they have been bottle-fed around the clock since their arrival on V alentine's Day," said J acque Petrone, owner. HALO Rescue is a no-kill, nonprofit animal shelter in S ebastian that accepts animals as space becomes available for them. The same day, an unwanted litter of six slightly older Chihuahua puppies were also brought in and are currently being fostered by a volunteer until they are old enough to be adopted," Ms. P etrone said. "All of the Chihuahuas have been spoken for, as has the female boxer/bull terrier mix." P uppies and kittens are soft, cute and cuddly, but with every springtime, animal shelters like HALO have to brace themselves for the inevitable deluge of tiny four-legged animals. "I t' s not a myth, it really is true what they say about animals in springtime," Ms. Petrone said. And the sad thing is that these puppies and kittens, though adorable, are most often unplanned and therefore unwanted, and they are sent off to an animal shelter or left somewhere to fend for themselves. "I t' s not that I don't believe in puppies, I love them, but the whole process of people who don't fix their animals keeps the overpopulation going," Ms. Petrone said. M any people don't spay or neuter their pets because they think it costs hundreds of dollars, but that isn't always the case. HALO Rescue has a special spay and neuter voucher program in partnership with the Florida V eterinary League in Vero B each. All a pet owner has to do is come to the animal shelter and request a voucher and then they can set up an appointment with Florida Veterinary League, Ms. Petrone said. A bout 65 percent of the animals that come into the shelter are not fixed, Ms. P etrone said.By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.com See PUPPIES, A2INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Local, national and international baseball teams have already kicked up the red clay at Vero B each Sports Village this y ear, but next year the complex could be closed. The facility formerly known as Dodgertown has been leased from the county since 2009, first by M inor League Baseball, and in January 2012, the lease assignment was amended to Verotown, which includes MiLB and other partners, including former Los Angeles Dodgers president, Peter O'Malley. In a letter to county administrator Joe Baird dated Feb.5, Craig Callan, vice president of Vero B each Sports Village, wrote that Verotown would not exercise their lease renewal option when the current lease expires in April 2014. In a memorandum to I ndian River County commissioners, county attorney Alan Polackwich said negotiations with Verotown been bogged down when agreements could not be reach on Verotown's liability for capital expenses, casualty insurance premiums and liquidated damages in the event the lease is broken before expiring. Mr. Callan wrote in his letter that Verotown's purpose was to "save and polish what has been known as Dodgertown."

"The fishermen would operate the fish house and pay a monthly r ent of $1 per month for the working waterfront." Mr. Minner said the city has applied for a grant to help pay for the cost of building the fish house, but grant awards aren't r eleased until July at the earliest and there is no guarantee the city would get it. V ice Mayor Don Wright was concerned about the city getting into such a large financial obligation without being certain of help from a grant to pay for it all. C ouncilwoman Andrea Co y said she was concerned with a lease stipulation that allows the co-op to hold two special events without needing special city approval. "I f the focus was for the fishermen to fish, then they won't need parties on site," she said. C ouncilman Jim Hill disagreed, stating that having special events on the working waterfront would bring more attention to the area, bringing in more tourism to the city. Rich Stringer, an attorney for the co-op, said the proposed lease was something the co-op could agree to quite willingly. A revised draft of the lease will be brought before the council on Mar ch 13. B efore the lease agreement is finalized, it will have to be approved by the F lorida Community Trust, the organization that organized the Stan Mayfield grant the city originally used to get started on the working waterfront project.

MANAGING EDITORDA WN KREBS have interest in significant losses," the letter said. "Si nce 2009, the facility has yet to break even, but the losses have consistently been halved each year and the business model will work moving forward," Mr. C allan said in a previous interview. The lease stipulations in r enewal negotiations with the county would not, however, allow for the group to continue operating Vero B each Sports Village, Mr. C allan wrote. Mr. Polackwich was scheduled to present the letter for informational purposes and discussion during the March 5 county commission meeting, but the r esults of that presentation we re not available at press time. In late 2012, the nonprofit Tr easure Coast Sports Commission conducted an economic impact study about the sports facility. According to the study, the complex brought in $21.06 million to the area since December 2009. Last week, former Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher H ideo Nomo, one of the Ve r otown partners, was in Ve ro B each to welcome the M eiji University's baseball team to the sports facility for spring training camp. M eiji University is one of the largest and most prestigious Japanese universities located in Tokyo, a press r elease said. The college and spring training program at Vero B each Sports Village is just getting started and 131 teams from 26 states are expected to travel to Vero B each through the end of Ap r il to participate in the program.

While I'm far r emoved from my college days, I still am able to learn. After watching the pros play at the Honda Classic, I'm r eady for a final exam. N ot many of us can drive a ball over 300 yards, hit iron shots from 200 yards away to within a few feet of the hole and generally make playing this game look easy. While we may never accomplish these feats, we can still learn plenty by watching the game's best players. The best place to start is on the practice range. Even before the pros leave the locker room they make sure they have dressed for the w eather. They put on a comfortable shirt; slacks that fit and shoes that won't kill their feet while walking a few miles. They also make sure to bring a sweater or r ain jacket if it looks like they may need one. Each player arrives well before his scheduled tee time. You won't see anyone r unning from the parking lot with one shoe on, the other in his hand, racing to the first tee. Nor will you spot a pro rushing his warm-up, hitting two or three quick drives and then pronouncing himself "r eady." I was very impressed to see each player apply sunscreen before even beginning to get ready. The players made sure to protect every exposed part of their bodies. A few guys even w ear wide-brimmed hats to protect them from the sun. Wa r m-ups for the practice r ound are different from those before a competitive r ound. On practice round days, the players are doing just that, practicing. Some may not even play the course. Instead, they are working on their swing. M any are trying out new equipment as the courses they play beginning this w eek in Florida are much different from those they have been playing on the w est coast. Some are trying to figure out which clubs they need in the bag or tweaking the clubs they have to fit these new conditions. Early in the week you will see many pros at the range with their instructors, working to perfect something. In Florida, with the high humidity and low altitude, the players will also get less distance with each club. They spend plenty of time figuring out how far they are hitting each club and their caddies take plenty of notes. When Thursday rolls around, practice is over. They are no longer trying to change or perfect something. Their goal is to get r eady to play and to know how their body is responding. Just like us, the pros have days where the ball simply doesn't want to go where they would like. The players are hoping to discover this during their warm-up, not when it will cost them valuable strokes. They begin their routine by stretching, slowly working their muscles, getting them ready for taking a swing. Most players take extra time to make sure that their backs are loose and limber. After making sure their bodies are ready to swing, they start off with short chips with a wedge to get their rhythm. After hitting a few dozen balls with a nice, easy, smooth swing, they begin to take full shots. The full swings start with a short iron. The pros will usually hit a slight fade, then a straight shot, followed by a slight draw. The idea is to see if all three are working or not. They often change their aiming point so they don't get fixated on one spot. Fr om there it's on to the mid and then long irons. M ost pros hit their oddnumbered irons one day, their even-numbered the next. After finishing their irons, they pull out the heavy artillery. The fairway woods and then the driver follow. W atching how far and accurately they hit their long irons and woods with so little apparent effort is truly impressive. The pros will usually finish their warm-up with the clubs they feel they will use on the first hole or two. They may hit their driver one last time followed by their 7-iron. No w that the juices are flowing, the pros turn things down a notch and head to the practice green. Here they want to get the feel for the speed of the greens as w ell as some confidence heading into their round. They will also hit some chips and some bunker shots to get a feel for the condition of the rough and sand. Then it's off to the first tee and the beginning of what they hope is a fantastic r ound of golf. It doesn't always turn out that way, but their routine seldom var ies. Y ou can learn a lot from professionals before they even hit the first tee. I certainly did.

Control the mosquitoesIs there still a mosquito control program? Anybody who dares to venture outside after dark is immediately attacked by the swarming pests. Some of the problem is r elated to the continued neglect of fixing the drainage ditches, allowing standing water to be prime breeding grounds. Once again, hurricane season is approaching and nothing has been done. Guess their priority of getting a paper shredder is more important than the safety and welfare of the community. Time to re-evaluate priorities. Unjust killingThe killing of the sheriff's deputy was unjustified Thursday morning. The officer was doing his duty, that's all. He didn't have to die for that. You didn't have to hurt his family because you did something dumb that morning. The excuse he gave for killing the officer while the officer sat in his patrol car is so lame. My prayers go out the family of Sgt. Morales. I pray that the Lord have mercy on the killer. F ree CubaWhat are the Sebastian and Indian River county Chambers of Commerce thinking? Instead of planning a trip to C uba using a special exemption issued by the Department of the Treasury, why aren't all Chambers across the country demanding that Obama remove the boycott on C uba thereby allowing all Americans to travel to and from this wonderful country? Why have we allowed this to go on for this long? The people of Cuba have been punished long enough! End the boycott and begin trading with Cuba now! An opinion on an opinionOnce again, the religious right, a.k.a. the "American Ta liban," voices disgust with anyone not of their absolutist faith. You cannot get away with saying, 'If you try to stop me from insulting homosexuals it violates my freedom of prejudice,' but you can get away with saying, 'It violates my freedom of religion.' Where is there a difference? Morality does not come from religion, it precedes it.T oday's youthEv ery week I read your newspaper. It's a good paper to r ead. But when I get to the police report, I have to shake my head. I saw so many young people being arrested for things that they should know not to do. Not just males, but females, too. Are the parents talking to these young folks about life? Especially about the way they are dressing these days, with pants hanging down. Why don't they just put a belt on to keep them up? Then you might get a job from someone. And young ladies, put some clothes on. Come on parents, do your job. And leave those drugs alone, too. Get a real life and stop living off the system. That's for everyone who is getting some type of help without working. I see so many young people want to get in the system, rather than get off of it.On illegalsThe problem of illegals needs to be addressed. F or me it comes down to denying reasons for illegals coming to our country. No free medical care and stringent proof that you are legally here to work. The idea that all who cross our border want to be citizens (promoted by the "way to citizenship") is a fallacy. They want to support their family in Mexico, and probably don't want to "wait in line" and learn what it takes to be a citizen. This I understand. In any swearing in ceremony, there seems to be majority who did it the hard way. A million troops on the borders and a wall will not solve the problem. Stop the benefits and cease trying to stop/apprehend illegals. They will be sent back and return tomorrow. Stop using incorrect termsThis is about the terminology in this country. If you are born in this country, you are not an African-American, you are an American of African heritage. If you are born in this country, you are not a Cuban-American, you are an American of Cuban heritage. I'm sick and tired of the media separating the people of this country with their terminology. It's time we stopped using those terms. It makes me ill.Questioning ObamaObama appointed two devout Muslims to Homeland S ecurity. Obama and Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan and swore in Kareem Shora into Homeland Secur ity Advisory Council. (HSAC) Has anyone heard a new government official appointed as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant? Wasn't it devout Muslims who killed 13 at Fort Hood, and flew planes into the U. S. that killed thousands?Problem with ObamaCareOne in five companies with fewer than 500 employees say they are 'likely" or "very likely" to discontinue company provider insurance coverage within five years, a survey re vealed. Reason: The main provision of Obama Care will be implemented in 2014.L et Border Agents do their jobsI t's difficult for hard-working Americans to understand why our president is so anxious to have non-citizens come here and work for peanuts, taking our jobs. President Obama has issued a directive prohibiting ICE agents from "arresting illegal aliens solely on charges illegal entry and V isa overstay." What this means is he is ordering our border patrol not to do their job. He's putting American jobs at risk.F ull gun registration" This year will go down in history for the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our lead into the future. Adolf Hitler, 1935." "T o conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens." That's anonymous. Also, ask our friends to the north, Canada. They had full gun registration, national registration. Ask them what happened to their weapons. While we are at it, I would like some answers from the Obama Administration from his place of employment before he came to the Oval Office, being Illinois, the state and Chicago. That is the most ruthless state in the nation as far as crime let's pin it down to Chicago they have the toughest gun laws in Chicago and Illinois than in any state. And their murder rate is the highest, bar none.Recycling senseW ould somebody please explain to me why I have to carefully sort my recycle items into two different colored bins when all they do when the truck picks up is to empty them both into the same section of the garbage truck? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Iwas backing up some data a while back to an external USB drive when I noticed a behavior that is not uncommon. As I began backing up the contents of a rather bloated folder, during the process I noticed the "estimated time r emaining" figure was jumping all over the place. It started out saying something like 48 minutes r emaining, and then jumped down to 30, 18 and then 11 minutes. Then I noticed the estimated time r emaining figure stayed at 11 minutes for more than an hour. The progress bar was moving slowly to the right, and just as I thought the file transfer was just about over, the progress bar jumped back about a third of the way across. As I watched, the number bounced around some, dropping from the incredibly high 25 million mark and dropping to more manageable numbers, such as 45 minutes, 28 and once again 11 minutes and there it stayed for another 45 minutes. I finally got fed up with watching and shut off the monitor, so I don't know when it actually finished. B ut when I came back to it in the morning, the file copy was complete, and it didn't take 48 years. B ut it got me thinking; what is this "estimated time r emaining" business all about, and can that figure ever be trusted? I've certainly seen that behavior before with other file copy operations, downloads from the internet, CD burning and other similar procedures, and I've always taken that number with a grain of salt, but that 25 million figure caught my attention. What is going on with this picture? W ell, in order to understand why that number fluctuates so wildly, it's necessary to keep in mind that, on any given computer, what's happening at any given moment is not necessarily the way things are going to happen in the next moment. So the "estimated" part of "estimated time remaining" is just that an estimate based on the conditions taken at that particular time slice. And what happens, from second to second, is those conditions are changing. Rapidly. What that means is when the computer starts a file transfer, it grabs hold of a chunk of data and looks to see how much bandwidth is available. Then it bases its estimate of how long it will take on that. B ut that estimate does not take into account things such as the overhead activity between the device and the computer, how much of the buffer is still available and lots of other technical things that are happening at the same time as the data transfer. Let me rephrase it like this: As soon as the file transfer starts, all the figures the computer based its' estimate on change, because of the way computers do things. What that boils down to is the estimated time for transfer is rarely accurate, because the conditions are constantly changing and can't be relied on, especially when it predicts that it will take 48 years. One question that is bound to come up is: "Is this strictly a Windows issue?" and to that I would have to say no. I've observed the same behavior on my Macs as well as my Windows boxes. So that, in a nutshell, is an explanation for the neveraccurate estimated time r emaining issue that I'm sure we've all experienced at one time or another. I would personally like to see them do away with the estimated time figure and just stick with a graphical progress meter. That would make a whole lot more sense than the arbitrary numbers we get now, and they are easier to read at a glance.

The Indian River County Sheriff's Office is very proud of our accredited status with both the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation and the internationally r ecognized Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies," said Sheriff Deryl Loar. "By having these accreditations, we are furthering our commitment to the community to provide the very best law enforcement and correctional services. I would like to personally thank the members of the I ndian River County Sheriff's Office for their continued dedication in achieving the highest of standards." Pa r ticipation in the accreditation process is strictly voluntary. Every three years an agency must again prove compliance of the 240 standards in order to maintain the accredited status. An agency's first r eaccredited on-site assessment is one of the most intense assessments due to requirement of proving compliance with all standards since their inception into the agency. The Florida Corrections A ccreditation program offers the opportunity to evaluate the corrections facility's operations against standards developed by the Florida Corrections A ccreditation Commission. This process allows administrative staff to r emedy deficiencies and upgrade the quality of corr ectional programs and services. The overall purpose of FCAC is to improve the delivery of correctional services. All aspects of Corr ectional operations are addressed through the standards, including: A dmission, Classification, H ousing, Sanitation, Food Se r vice, Personnel Issues, F iscal Activities, Security, Tr aining and Medical. The Indian River County S heriff's Office received its third reaccreditation award by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation on Feb. 21 at the Florida accreditation conference which was held in Howie in the Hills. The Sheriff's Office was first accredited by the C ommission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation in 2004, again in 2007, 2010, and 2013. Every three years the agency must prove compliance with the 85 comparative compliance standards as w ell as compliance with the 480 standards defined by the Commission on A ccreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. The Indian River County S heriff's Office will be one of 11 agencies in Florida to be accredited by the Florida Corrections Accreditation Commission, Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation, and the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies. O ur accredited status has proven to show increased cooperation and coordination with other law enforcement agencies and other branches of the criminal justice system.

The days of a library being filled with only old books, dusty shelves, a few patrons and poor lightning are long gone, and the library in Sebastian is a perfect example of the community hub public libraries have become. One of the popular ongoing programs at the North C ounty location is a seasonal film series. From the comfort of their chairs, residents gather at the library to visit historic and beautiful places and have a snack, all for free, thanks to the support of the Friends of the Library organization. The films are shown on Thursdays at 3 p.m. in the library's large room and are about one hour long," said L ynn Walsh, president of the organization. Earlier this year, some of the films shown were about the Dominican Republic, T uscany, Alaska, Canada and Mexico. Three more films will be shown before the series is complete. March 14 will highlight the Netherlands, "C r uising France" and "C r uising the Danube" will be on March 21 and on Ap r il 4, the final film will explore "The Lost Fleet of C olumbus." The Friends of the Library have been organizing the films each year since 1983 and they have been quite successful," Ms. W alsh said.
