INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The combination of alcohol, drugs and romantic entanglements led to gunfire and six injuries over Easter weekend and the trend must not continue, said local law enforcement. In a press conference on Ap r il 1, Indian River County S heriff Deryl Loar asked the community to help law enforcement by cooperating with the ongoing investigations of the three shooting events that occurred last weekend, two of which in Gifford are thought to be r elated. The largest incident happened on the evening of Ma r ch 31 in front of Smith's Grocery store within a group of more than 200 people, and is thought to have been related to a drive-by shooting on March 30 in front of Shake Your B ooty nightclub, law enforcement officials said. The third shooting is a homicide investigation and although no one has been charged, detectives are watching a person of interest in the case, the sheriff said. While there is overwhelming physical evidence to charge in the three shootings and suspects, witnesses and victims are being asked to step up and assist Indian River County S heriff's detectives in wrapping up the cases, Sheriff Loar said. There will be arrests coming," he said. The Rev. Benny Rhyant, president of the Indian River County Pastors' Association, called for the community to be involved, but not just when a problem occurs. He said he wants members of the Gifford community to stop coming up with excuses and work together with law enforcement to prevent things like this from happening in the future. "T ry to find a sober solution, not just react emotionally," the Rev. Rhyant said. The first shooting occurred on March 30 in the early morning hours in Ve ro B each. Two men, thought to be brothers or step-brothers, were involved in an altercation that turned into a homicide. The victim, John Ross, 29, was transported by emergency personnel to I ndian River Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead on the scene. He was shot at least once, but no further details were released at press time. Scott Collins, 24, is considered a person of interest in the case, but as of press time, had only been charged with possession of cocaine. Fi ve people were injured during the March 31 shooting, including a 1y ear-old who was struck by glass. None of the people have been identified. After a car show in Gifford, hundreds of people migrated to the vicinity of S mith's Grocery store. S heriff Loar said two suspects from Fort Pierce had a fistfight with two young men from Gifford, which turned into a gunfight near the storefront. The shooting is thought to have been a continuation of a verbal altercation and drive-by shooting at the Shake You Booty nightclub on March 30. D etectives believe the shootings involved relationships between a young lady and young men and possibly including drug or alcohol. "A r ecipe for not a good night," Sheriff Loar said.

By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.comINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Buddy Verderber comes from a family used to championships and he hopes to continue that pattern in the future. The former Sebastian River High School and I ndian River State College graduate and triathlete is setting his eyes on the prize and is raising funds to compete at an elite amateur event, The W orld Championships in Hy de Park, London, later this year. Mr. Verderber has qualified as a member of the USA triathlon team to compete in the race which is expected to draw 3,000 international ra cers from 40 countries. Although he has made the team, he is still expected to pay for all of his expenses, so his family has organized a local fundraiser to help propel him to his goal. The fundraiser will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. on Ap ri l 13 at the Tiki Bar and Grill on 1130 Indian River Drive in Sebastian. The event will include a silent auction, door prize drawing and a cornhole tournament. "I t all started with competitive swimming in high school and I just wanted to prove everyone that anything is possible," Mr. Verderber said. In his high school career at Sebastian River H igh School, Mr. Verderber challenged himself with swimming and dabbled in running. He continued swimming at the collegiate level but added r unning and biking to r ound out his triathlon training after suggestions from friends. One source of inspiration for him however, is his father, Bud Verderber. "M y dad mentioned to me that he had completed everything on his bucket list except an Ir onman," Mr. Verderber said.

Lauren Book, a nationally recognized advocate for sexually abused children and founder of the nonprofit, Lauren's Kids, stopped in Vero Beach on Mar ch 28 as part of her 1,500 mile journey across the state to raise awareness of sexual abuse and encourage other victims to speak about their experiences. He r stop in Vero Beach was at the county tax collector's office. Tax Collector Carole Jean Jordan said Ms. Book's story and mission is incredible and needs to be shared. "She is an amazing y oung lady and she and her dad have made something positive out of what could have been so debilitating to her," Ms. Jo r dan said. Ms. Book was a victim of sexual abuse for six y ears at the hands of a female nanny. Her book, "I t' s OK to Tell: A Story of H ope and Recovery," tells the physical and sexual abuse she went through and the process with which she mustered the courage to talk about it.

"I'm sure there are children just like her (in I ndian River County) who have left home or been kicked out of their home for something just like this." The walk will conclude in Tallahassee where Ms. B ook will seek a change in state law through House Bi ll 7031 that would make an out-of-court statement from older child victims of sexual abuse a stronger tool in trials against their alleged abusers. Sh e is also pursuing a change in school curriculum for the cause. Instead of only having the kindergarten classes learn about abuse prevention, she wants to see the curriculum to expand to grades one through five, incorporating topics such as bullying and Internet safety, a press release said. On her website, Ms. B ook has a special section for video interviews produced by her organization with experts on child abuse issues. Each week of her walk, she will post new videos focusing on va r ious aspects of child sexual abuse, including signs of abuse, pedophile tactics, prevalence and healing education and prevention, and more. Ap r il is national sexual assault awareness month and this year's national theme is focused on the prevention of child sexual abuse.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Representatives from private foundations gathered Tuesday, March 19 at the newly launched Foundation Forum hosted by the I ndian River Community F oundation. The session's topic, Children and Youth: The New Fa ce of Homelessness, gave the representatives an opportunity to learn about this little-talked about subject in Indian River County, the nonprofit organizations addressing the need and the opportunities private foundations have to impact the issue. F our organizations, including representatives from the Indian River C ounty School District, Children's Home Society, H ibiscus Children's Center and United For Families, served on a panel that provided the group with broad statistics about the subject of youth and homelessness in our community, along with specific information about how their organization is addressing the issues. The Forum concluded with a dynamic discussion between panel and foundation representatives. The next Foundation Fo r um is April 9 and will focus on Indian River Lagoon: Concern or Crisis featuring representatives from the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Pr ogram, Indian River Land Tr ust, Ocean Research and C onservation Association and Harbor Branch. The Foundation Forum is an informal group interested in learning about community needs, discussing critical issues in charitable giving and becoming acquainted with others who share the philanthropic spirit, said P aul Becker, a board member of the Indian River C ommunity Foundation and chairman of the Foundation Forum. It is open to any person who is a trustee or board member of a priv ate foundation, which conservative estimates show about 200 such people living at least seasonally in Indian River County. "M any of these foundations are family foundations, which often have the greatest flexibility to impact an issue through their grant-making programs," Mr. Becker said. "The Foundation Forum is our way of giving these representatives tools to understand Indian River County needs and specific ways they can get involved if they so choose." The concept of the Foundation Forum was developed in 1996 as the brainchild of Ellie McCabe, Chairman of the The Robert F. and Eleonora W. McCabe F oundation. From 1996 through 2004, Ms. McCabe convened four meetings each season for foundation trustees. Ms. McCabe turned her focus elsewhere in 2005 and the Foundation Fo r um remained dormant until Becker revived it this y ear through the Indian River Community Foundation. Mr. Becker stressed that the Foundation Forum is not a fundraiser, but rather a convening of private foundation trustees around a specific community issue for meaningful discussion. "I t could be that a representative has no interest in giving to the specific issue being discussed, but the conversation will spark ideas that a can be translated to other causes" Ms. B ecker said. "The most important result is the opportunity to learn alongside other trustees to further philanthropic knowledge and engagement." The Indian River Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving I ndian River County through donor driven philanthropy. The Foundation currently manages over $18 million in assets restricted for charitable purposes, the majority of which are held in donor advised funds. To attend the Foundation Fo r um, a person must serve on the board of directors or be employed by a private, grant-making foundation.

W inning at the World Championships in Hyde Pa rk will put him that much closer to his goal, he said. "I think I have the edge for it and I'm going to keep going with it and see if I can do it," Mr. Verderber said. "I'm looking forward to coming back and seeing people who I haven't seen in a while and I hope they come out and support me." S ince his son has transitioned to triathlon training, Mr. Bud Verderber said he has seen an exponential amount of dedication and determination bring put forth. "I have never seen someone so dedicated to his sport like this," said Mr. Ve r derber, who was a professional kickboxer. H is son's drive and passion has led him to change his eating habits to a nearly vegetarian diet, study the best ways to challenge and train his body and pursue a different career path as a personal trainer. H is son has been approached by coaches who want to work with him, but for now, he has opted to train on his own, but does look to his father for some advice now and then. "I did train with him when he first started, but now it's not even fun. I'd be ru nning, he'd take off and next thing I know, he's lapped me," Mr. Verderber said with a laugh.

"There is a critical link between mental health services and crime prevention, and we fully appreciate the work the Collaborative is doing." F ounded in 2004, the M ental Health Collaborative of Indian River County is comprised of private and public funders, mental health providers, and individuals who work to increase access, decrease duplication and facilitate community-wide support of mental health issues.

"That's what collaboration is all about." The vision of the collabor ative is to provide a seamless delivery of mental health care services unlike any other in the state of F lorida. The collaborative seeks to engage and build trust among individuals, government agencies, law enforcement and mental health providers to transform the continuum of care into an effective system.

Photo courtesy of Margaret Ostman Benefit dinner to feature "The Man with the Golden Voice"INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Salvation Army of Indian River County has announced that "The Man W ith The Golden Voice" Ted W illiams will be the keynote speaker at "The Soap, Soup and Salvation" Benefit Dinner taking place from 5 to 8 p.m. on April 6 at The Oak Harbor Club House in Vero Beach. Mr. Williams gained widespread media attention in early December 2010 when a passerby taped him homeless and standing next to traffic holding a cardboard sign with a hand-written advertisement of his voice and a request for donations. The clip of him and his gorgeous radio voice was then posted on YouTube, the video went viral and ov ernight launched him as the homeless man with the golden voice." Mr. Williams has since r eceived numerous jobs that include becoming the official voice for New England Cable N ews, The Golden Voice of Love' to promote Kraft's Mac & Cheese TV campaign which launched on ESPN during the 2011 Craft Fight Hunger Bowl and is a sought after speaker on the issue of addiction and homelessness. In M ay of 2012 he authored the book, "A Golden Voice: How F aith, Hard Work, and H umility Brought Me from the Streets to Salvation. In his book, Mr. Williams puts all the pieces together to give an unforgettable, honest account of life on the streets. N othing is held back, as Mr. W illiams takes the reader through theft, crack houses, and homeless shelters in a search, ultimately, for r edemption and hope. Along the way, we see his r elationship with his longterm girlfriend, Kathy, grow into an unlikely and inspiring love story, and we hear the Golden Voice of God lead him from the selfishness of crime to the humility of the street corner almost a year before he was "discovered" on that highway entrance ramp. Mr. W illiams proves that no one, no matter how degraded, is never too lost for a second chance. The event will begin at 5 p .m. with light hors d'oeuvres and cocktails from the cash bar and dinner followed by T ed Williams sharing his inspirational journey and experiences with homelessness, addiction and finding S alvation along with his new found fame and experiences ov er the last two years. Before and after the event, Mr. Wi lliams will be signing books available for purchase. No tickets are sold for this event and RSVP's are going fast. The Salvation Army will ask for a donation at the end of the event that will be matched by one anonymous donation of $10,000. The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church, has been supporting those in need in H is name without discrimination since 1865. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army. Each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children in this community. About 84 cents of every dollar raised is used to carry out those services in Indian River County.

Ellie said she was picking up trash, so the animals don't eat it (trash) and get sick and die.' Both families were in town visiting their dad Bill Dawe of Sebastian. Cliff Partlow staff photographer What immigration reform is really aboutLet's be perfectly clear. "Comprehensive Immigration R eform, or more accurately, "Amnesty for Illegal Aliens," is about one thing and one thing only: votes. Any person in government who says anything, and I mean anything different is lying. Amnesty is here again (after being r oundly trounced by We, the People on multiple occasions) because the Democrats want votes to get in and keep themselves in power in our government at all levels, local, state, and federal. It's clearly not about what's best for the country and its citizens or else Amnesty wouldn't even be discussed for one second. Liberal Sanctuary Cities across the country are controlled by Democrats. Now, even some Republicans are willing to accept Amnesty because they lost at the polls in the last election. It's all about votes and these people will destroy the country to get them. Anyone who votes for Amnesty should be tried for treason. At the very least they must be targeted for defeat at the polls and kicked out of government for abject failure of their duties to the people who elected them, you know, American Citizens.Obamaism?Ev eryday living is made up of choices. For every negative there is a positive. Being gay is one of them. I believe gays should have the same rights all Americans enjoy as to work, education, achievement, etc. We are not to judge, but are to leave all judging to God. The big decision in Congress now is whether to enact Gay Marriage into law along with many other Godless and unconstitutional trappings liberals are shoving down our throats. Gay's make their own choices, but same sex marriages must not be "Enacted into Law." TV sitcoms today would be considered pornography fifty years ago. Blasphemy, homosexuality (as being funny, the norm, or family orientated). Audiences laughing like crazy at sexual situations and corny sexual jokes. Certain Reality' programs, men choosing women, women choosing men, totally sexual, are not entertaining, funny, nor are they intelligent. M others entering five year old girls into beauty contests made up to look 21. Kids have no childhood. All this has slipped slowly and silently into our lives and the lives of our kids. Being a young country we have come a long way as to choices, decisions and the lack of blessings. So, where do we stand today? We have "Obamaism" with his sadistic and satanic decisions (choices) on the table, while our country is failing fast. O ur oceans are polluted with oil, garbage, dead animals washing up on shore. The coral reefs of Florida are infected in some areas. Only one percent of water on earth is fit for human and animal consumption. Certain fish are extinct. De v astating winter and summer storms and draught bombarding the U. S. causing food loss and prices to soar. The horrible abuse of children and crime fill our neighborhoods. Obama is not interested in these problems and has never put America first. Our so-called leader will raise taxes of One Tr illion Dollars' over the next 10 years. How much is that in one year? That's insane! Will the "Working Middle Class" be able to pay this? In ten years there would be no jobs and the entire population would be on welfare. What welfare? Where and how are all these millions and millions of immigrants expected to go? Most cannot speak English, won't find jobs (there aren't any), or pay taxes. Taking so much away from certain people and giving so much to others will meet in a huge crash. What part of this does ignorance' not understand? I am fed up with Obamaism, wimpy Republicans and D emocrats who will not staunchly fight him. Others have shed much blood, given their lives for many years to fight dictators all over the world. Americans are still dying and shedding blood for the freedom of this country. Lawmakers and all Americans must stand tall, act like men and women of God, and make the right decisions regarding all negative choices' for the good of all.Stop tossing trashEv ery day my dogs and I walk or bike ride Fleming Grant R d. between Micco Rd. and the railroad tracks. Daily, there is new evidence of beer alcoholics, rum drinkers and cancer stick smokers throwing their garbage on the side of the road, r ather than putting their cans of Bud, Bush, etc. bottles, cigar ette packages in a receptacle at the local Cumberland Fa rm s, W inn-Dixie store or even the re-cycle or garbage can at home. Obviously these people are lacking in education, good manners and a strong moral upbringing, never learning not to litter. Y ou can't call these people smart. Why? Read the following: One woman throws her empty cigarette boxes out the window. She put her credit card in the cellophane alongside the box. When spotted alongside the road, it was taken to the issuing Wells Fargo bank, where everyone had a good laugh. Another individual who also would fail a Mensa screening likes to put his Bud cans, Camel cigarettes boxes and scratch tickets in plastic bags and toss the alongside the road. This person couldn't even read his winning scratch ticket for $50.00. Thank you Mr. Trash throwing out that bag of garbage cost you and made me a winner. One day I noticed an empty McDonald bag, drink container and wrappers someone threw out the window onto Fleming Grant Rd. there was a $1.00 dollar bill laying alongside the bag. Upon further investigation inside the bag was a $10.00 bill more ones and small change. This highly uneducated person chucked the balance of their purchase in the bag and forgot. It is doubtful the persons who litter our road can or ever will read this rant, but perhaps when you read this, you might recognize someone you know that would benefit from this story and in telling or repeating it, you just might wake up the trash who are throwing garbage on Fleming Grant R oad.Close Video ArcadesDon't our politicians have anything better to do than interfere with a person's right to enjoy and entertain themselves as they wish, as long as no harm is done to others. Well, here's my suggestion. If they are so concerned about video gaming, let's shut them down and convert them into Strip Clubs. That doesn't seem to be on anyone's radar now. Just think of the benefits. Instead of a few game repair clerks, we would employ hundreds of ladies in the workforce, increasing the tax base. And those folks that visit the arcades? I'm sure they will involve themselves in this new form of entertainment. B ut what about those seniors? Not a problem, after a visit to the clubs, they'll go back to their community. It's about time we gave the Villages a run for their money in the world of STD's. Hey, that would probably force the Health Department to reopen more clinics, employing more people. Personally, I don't see a down side It's a win-win situation. 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. In the four years before I took office, Florida lost more than 825,000 jobs, unemployment more than tripled from 3.5 percent to 11.1 percent, and state debt increased by $5.2 billion. T oday, our businesses have created more than 280,000 new private sector jobs, Florida's unemployment rate has dropped below the national average to 7.8 percent, we have paid down state debt by $2 billion; and we are not stopping there. We cut taxes, eliminated thousands of r egulations on job creators, and invested in education. It 's working. B ecause we made the hard choices over the last two years, we are able to make the smart choices to keep our economy growing this year. We have a projected budget surplus for the first time in six years. Our challenges are different in this budget, but our goal is absolutely the same: economic growth and job creation. This year, we have two priorities to keep our economy growing: first, r emove the sales tax on manufacturing equipment to create more manufacturing jobs, and second, invest in our teachers by providing them a well-deserved pay r aise. Our Florida Families F irst Budget supports these priorities while maintaining substantial reserves. This is r esponsible stewardship of taxpayer money. Why are we so focused on creating jobs and improving education? Why do we focus on putting Florida Families F irst in our budget? Because every Florida family wants not just to dream, but to have the opportunity to make those dreams come true. We must invest in our education system, support our teachers and cut taxes to help create more jobs. O ur work to cut spending and live within our means ov er the last two years has allowed us to once again invest in education. Student learning is important to the economy because the workers of tomorrow are in F lorida classrooms today. The single most important factor in student learning is the quality of teaching. That is why we eliminated teacher tenure, and signed performance pay into law. It will take effect in 2014. Florida's education system is making tremendous progress, due in large part to our great teachers and many in the Legislature. The best way we can build on this progress is to reward our hard-working teachers with a $2,500 pay raise. S ome say they are afraid that giving raises to all teachers may mean that a teacher doing a bad job gets r ewarded. But, thanks to our work, we are now in a better position than ever before to r eward good teachers and move bad teachers out of the classroom. We don't want a war on teachers; we want a war on failure. An investment in Florida teachers is an investment in F lorida's future because teachers change lives. That is why our budget increases K-12 education funding by more than $1.2 billion. This billion dollar commitment builds on our billion dollar investment in K-12 education last year and our total education investment in state funding for K12 schools this year is the highest state funding level in Florida history. As long as even one Florida family needs a job, our work is not done. That is why we are committed to removing the sales tax on manufacturing equipment. Florida is one of only a few states with this tax, and we lag behind the nation in per capita manufacturing jobs. Manufacturing has a major impact on our economy because every manufacturing job supports two to three other jobs in our state. I believe Florida will be the number one place in the world for job creation, the number one place in the world to get a great education and the number one place in the world where families can afford to live. Ev erything we have done together over the last two y ears has been geared toward economic growth. It 's working.Investing in jobs and education works GOVERNORRICK S COTT Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Allow your kid to start drinking at home and they could be one of them. According to the Drug Free Action Alliance, "Every day more than six teens die from non-driving, alcohol related causes, like falls, drowning and suicide." Don't tell your kids not to go to parties, but then allow them to drink in your house. Lock up or hide your alcohol and stop giving your kids mixed messages about alcohol use. If you really care about your children, be their parent, not their friend. Set clear rules for your kids that state no drinking, anywhere, at any time, until they are 21. When teens drink alcohol before they turn 21, studies show that they have more of these problem behaviors: 1. More sex, especially unprotected sex. 2. Stealing or skipping school. 3. Fighting. 4. Greater risk of becoming dependent on alcohol. Y ou cared about their every move when they were y oung, don't stop now or their life may be done.

Tr uMobility and Azzly, both businesses based in Ve ro B each, beat out 32 other companies for first and second place in the business plan competition, earning them cash prizes and free legal, accounting and mentoring advice from event presenters, the nonfor-profit Research Coast Pr icipium Foundation. As first place winner, TruMo bility was awarded $25,000 based on their business plan presentation during the March 21 competition. The timed presentations were given to four venture capitalist judges and seven members of the foundation. Co r etta Dorado, Azzly's founder, CEO and president said the process was difficult, but fun at the same time. When your head has been down for the past five y ears trying to get going, being recognized and visible is just great. It's a validation of what you are, and that is crucial for a new company," Ms. Dorado said. As the second place winner, Azzly was awarded $15,000 in cash prizes, which will all be put into building the company and its profile in the medical community, Ms. Dorado said. A zzly bills itself as a "oneclick patient care management" company. Basically, A zzly provides small to mid-size medical practices and clinics a program to manage electronic health r ecords, patient health information, claims and clearing house records, as w ell as revenue information, all in one secure and seamlessly integrated system. The system allows physicians and administrative personnel to schedule appointments, record patient visits, health outcomes, manage billing, and more, all in one place, instead of going back and forth between other systems that only manage one area, Ms. Dorado said. American consumers are accustomed to doing many things electronically, shopping, banking, booking for v acations, and in general people are comfortable with retrieving personal information online. "W e' re all patients at one time or another, and today's technology allows us to have electronic medical r ecords, but yet, it's not something most people have available to them," Ms. Dorado said. "By offering a streamlined system at a competitive price, the medical community can embrace the new technology and give the consumers a way to be accountable for their care and health by having the records available in a timely and accessible way." Tr uMobility offers companies a way to integrate cell phones with corporate business phones. As a result of the integrated system, TruMobility can lower the communication costs for a business. The system can also increase mobile productivity and eliminate coverage gaps in an office space. A user would have one phone number and voicemail box and calls can be moved seamlessly between the desk and mobile phone. The Research Coast Principium Foundation is dedicated to developing economic opportunity by facilitating interaction between professionals, investors and the emerging business community. The competition was open to businesses in Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties.

The American Association of Retired Persons is offering low-cost refresher drivers classes for members and members of the general public in Indian River County in April. The six-hour classroombased instruction reviews safe driving procedures, r oad signs and markings, F lorida laws and ways to cope with the effects of aging on driving, said B etty Wellington, course facilitator, in an email. "I t boosts driving awareness and how to improve driving skills, minimize crash risks and increases confidence," she said. The AARP safe driving materials also include vision and seating tips for older drivers. F or example, purchasing a car with deeply tinted windows could limit visibility for night driving, and having the appropriate eyewear for daytime versus nighttime driving would also be helpful. When it comes to being seated in the driver seat, making sure the seatbelt, steering wheel and head r estraint are all in the corr ect position is important as well. The seatbelt should lie flat on the collarbone, the steering wheel should allow for clear visibility of the dashboard and the road, and the head r estraint should be touching the center of the back of the head. The driving safety class cost for AARP members is $12 and $14 for non-members. The class includes a workbook and supplement and a DVD component for certain sections of the class, Ms. Wellington said. As an added bonus, not only will drivers who take the class learn how to be safer on the roads, there is also a potential insurance savings to be had," she said. "Usually insurance companies will give a 5 percent to 10 percent discount to individuals who complete the safety course, though the amount may vary from person to person." Classes are held in various locations in the county. A class will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on April 8 and April at the Boys and G irls Club in Vero Beach. To r egister, call (772) 7137129. Another class is scheduled for April 10 and April 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p .m. at the North Indian River County Library in S ebastian. To register, call (772) 562-6031. The final class in April will be 9:30 a.m.to 12:30 p .m.on April 19 and April 22 at the Brackett Library at Indian River State College's Vero Beach campus. To r egister,call (772) 5623184.

It was quickly becoming a favorite dining spot of ours. But our first visit almost didn't happen. A few weeks ago I'd made r eservations there for our anniversary. When I told her where we'd be dining, her r esponse was, "A cafe? You're taking me to a cafe for our anniversary?" Luckily for me, it was every bit as good as I'd heard and she went home with a smile! The restaurant is cozy. It seats less than 35, and is decorated in a rooster motif that reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen in the country. B ut, there's no "hash slinging" here. The menu was full of appetizers and entrees that you'd find at high-end r estaurants. They also had an impressive wine list with some of the best labels. That night, my wife thoroughly enjoyed Salmon W ellington in a puffed pastry with a fantastic lemondill creme sauce. I was lucky enough to have ordered the Po rk O sso Bucco. It was the size of a softball and smothered in a delicious balsamic glaze. The outer skin was crispy and the meat just melted off of the bone. We met three couples at the table next to us who ra ved about the Red Rooster. "I t' s our favorite place," one said. It turns out that the ow ner, Steve Hahn, and my wife are both from Wisconsin. In fact, Steve's first r estaurant job was at a place that my wife had frequented. The evening was a hit, and we we re so amazed that there could be such a great r estaurant off the beaten path. So when we heard that there would be a wine dinner a few weeks later, we knew we couldn't miss it. When we arrived for the dinner, we were greeted with a warm smile by Steve's wife, Joti. She runs the front of the restaurant while Steve handles the kitchen. They had met while they both worked at the Yellow Dog C afe in Malabar, where S teve had been the executive chef for many years. They married, started a family and six years ago decided to open their own place. The name Hahn' is German for rooster, so hence the Red Rooster was born. We enjoyed Caprese S alad, Prince Edward Island M ussels in a creamy pesto sauce and a fantastic Veal S altimbocca. My wife only r ecently began eating mussels, but raved about these. The Saltimbocca consisted of veal scallopine layered with paper-thin prosciutto and fresh mozzarella, then finished with a delicious lemon-butter wine sauce. The veal was perfectly prepared and very tender. J im and Sally from Vintage S election provided the wines and one of the winemakers, Lee Skelton Venturini del Grecco, graced us with her presence. A former model, her estate in Italy, C astelnuovo Tancredi, produces some amazing wine. Their 06 L'Assedio DOC was very impressive. It's a w ell-balanced blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Colorino. It's full-bodied with great structure and powerful tannins. So good, in fact, that we bought two bottles to enjoy at home. We topped off our meal with the most amazing Ti r amisu that I've ever had. The ladyfingers soaked in the espresso with mascarpone and cocoa were out of this world. Once again, the Red R ooster Cafe lived up to its r eputation as one of the area's best-kept secrets. We left with the feeling that we dined with friends. My wife and I can't wait until the next wine dinner on April 22. We hope that S teve and Joti save us a seat. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday for lunch and from 4 to 8 p.m. for dinner. On Sundays, they are open from 4 to 8 p.m. They offer an Early Bird menu from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily. They are closed on M ondays.

The most popular exhibit at the museum this spring is "R ecycled Dreams: Pablo C ano's Marionettes," a show that combines human imagination and ingenuity with satire, humor and r epurposed objects for a creative display that stimulates intergenerational conversation. Mr. Cano is a South Florida artist with a talent for found-object sculpture and uses his marionettes in his ow n productions. Born in C uba, but raised in the U.S., Mr. Cano and his family we re on the last flight out of C uba before the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. This is Mr. Cano's first exhibit outside South Florida, said Jay Williams, museum curator. At any given time in the Schumann Gallery, children or adults can be seen exploring the hall with the 24 different pieces of art that happen to be marionettes. Some of the pieces are just fun and silly, but others are recreations of old famous works of art, said Mr. Williams. One of the most interesting and detailed art history homages is "Giovanni Arnolfini and his Wife," which is a mixed media design based on the "Portrait of Giovanni Arnolfini and his Wife" by painter Jan v an Eyck. Mr. Cano was able to r eproduce the intricate details of the painting using va r ious household objects and what some people might consider rubbish. In a clear sign of the times, one family was looking at a digital picture of the original painting and comparing itCliff Partlow /staff photographerThe pig in a tux, Boring Boris,' is just one of many pieces in The Recycled Dreams: Pablo Cano's Marionettes now on display through May 26.

Members are encouraged to share their creative works in the areas of Art, Music, andto the marionette sculpture in the gallery, exclaiming each time they found a matching detail. No matter the age of the museum visitor, everyone is fascinated by the recycled pieces used by Mr. Cano in creating the unusual marionettes. Someone with a good eye might even be able to identify a sink and a shopping cart among the framework for his creations. O ther items in his masterpieces include foil from cigarette packets, cheese graters, taillights, babydoll eyes, baskets, gasoline cans and a buoy. O ther fascinating marionettes recognizable historical figures, include an 8foot tall sculpture of "Queen Ma r ie Antoinette," a "Fred Astaire" and a "Louis Armstrong." The darkest and most sinister marionette in the room is a cigar-smoking, top hatw earing man-spider called "D r. D eath aka Fidel Castro." "H e obviously does not have a positive view of Mr. C astro," Mr. Williams said with a chuckle. I nterestingly, one of the eyeballs of "Dr. Death" is a tiny baseball, alluding to the Cuban dictator's pitching talents early on in his life. "M ost people don't know that he was being scouted to play here in the U.S.," Mr. W illiams said. F or the most part, Mr. C ano finds his own materials, but sometimes people drop off objects at his house in case he can use them. "I t' s an incredibly intriguing story in this exhibit. You can see politics, art history, history and religion because he pulls from all ov er the culture," Mr. W illiams said. Ev en technology is present in Mr. Cano's designs with pieces from his "Seven W onders of the Modern W orld" production, "Amaz ona," "Face-Booka," and "G oogle Lina." "H e pokes a little fun at our dependence on social media and the Internet," Mr. Williams said. The exhibit also includes a video of Mr. Cano's marionettes in action and during production. "R ecycled Dreams" will be on display at the museum through May 26.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Quail and venison and gator, oh my! One of the newest fundraising traditions of the Ve ro B each Oceanside R otary Club is to host a wild game feast and once again this hotly anticipated event will benefit community individuals with special needs. S unUp ARC, a nonprofit agency serving the needs of the developmentally and intellectually disabled, just celebrated one year since two like-minded nonprofits merged together to create the organization. This will be the second y ear Oceanside Rotary has partnered with SunUp ARC for the exciting fundraiser, said Elaine Jones, event coordinator. The event is scheduled for Ap r il 27 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will include loads of food for everyone to try, an auction, games and musical entertainment, she said. The feast will take place at B ig Racks Processing, 7065 21st St. Southwest, Vero B each. Tickets to the event are $30 in advance or $40 at the door. Children 12 and y ounger are free. Pa r ticipants will get to try many kinds of wild game, including gator, quail, pheasant and venison, as w ell as frog legs, fish and barbeque pork, Ms. Jones said. "W e have the finest hunter-chefs and they love to cook their own food," she said. The rotary club will also be bringing side dishes to r ound out the meal and there will be an oyster and clam bar. Be verages will include beer, soda, teas and water. Co r nhole games and bullwhip-cracking competitions are certain to be the popular forms of entertainment, along with local musical guests, Old Barber Br idge, Ms. Jones said. The auction will include donated items from local and national companies, including Bass Pro Shops and the Wild Turkey Federation. S unUp ARC clients will also be participating in the fundraiser, possibly helping out with the entertainment, said Chuck Bradley, executive director. "T his past year has been a busy one in the life of the nonprofit," he said. "In addition to merging two organizations into one, the clientele has continued to grow and SunUp ARC now serves 180 clients, an increase of nearly 30 percent." In 2012, SunUp ARC formed an advocacy committee to bring awareness to the community about the needs of people with disabilities. This past March, thanks to the donations of members of the community, the committee was able to take their message to Tallahassee during Disabilities A wareness Day. While in Tallahassee, P atricia Moody, Scott Connelly, Michelle Penly and N atalie Urquhart spoke to legislators, asking them to r emove the "r-word" in legislation referencing people with disabilities. "H ouse Bill 1119 and its companion bill Senate Bill 142, are currently in the committee stages and would remove the term mental retardation" and r eplace it with "intellectual disabilities" in all legislative language documents and state statutes," Mr. Bradley said. The four SunUp advocacy committee members were able to share with legislators how the "r-word" makes them feel, how degrading it is and how it destroys selfesteem, he said. The whole trip was funded by an outpouring of community support. We r eally thank everyone," Mr. Br adley said. The bills have not yet come to the floors of either the state House or Senate.

I don't know how many times I have been discussing something with a person as their machine sits "idle" when, all of a sudden, chug chug chug," the hard drive starts working furiously. Or even more surprising, the machine suddenly crashes, even though no one was "at the wheel." Invariably they look at me and ask, "Why did it just do that?" S ometimes people have a hard time accepting that even though they are not pushing the mouse, typing away or actively doing something, their machine is not "resting." The reality is that even when your computer appears inactive, it is still very busy with general housekeeping. There are tasks like monitoring the keyboard for input, painting the image on the display (dozens of times per second) or watching to see if the mouse moves. The list of chores goes on. Seriously, the list goes on and on and on! The tasks that your computer is constantly performing in the background are necessary for the function of the computer and are controlled, for the most part, by the operating system Windows. J ust because we, the users, aren't giving the computer any input or are not paying attention to what's going on the display does not mean that the computer gets to take a break until we come back. Nope. As long as there is power to the machine and it's turned on, your computer is very busy indeed. U nderstanding that your computer is busy doing something all the time can help ease the fear that something is wrong. I know that when a computer user spends a small fortune on a new machine, it can be pretty disconcerting when, for no apparent reason, their new machine starts chugging and groaning. M any people are also surprised to find out just how much brain power it takes for their computer to move the mouse. People don't realize that even something as simple or basic as moving the mouse pointer takes so much of the computers resources. Often I will see someone move their mouse in big swirls just to make sure the machine is working not r ealizing that moving the mouse will actually distract the computer, drawing its attention away from the task at hand. Let's see just how much "brainpower" it takes your machine to move your mouse. Click the task bar with the right mouse button and then click Task Manager. In Task Manager, click the Performance Tab and take a look at the CPU U sage History. This will display your computers "brain activity" on a graph that is updated every second or so. Move your mouse in big arcs about the screen. You can see how hard the computer has to work just to move the mouse. No w, next time your machine is busy and you wonder if your machine has crashed, you may be tempted to "test it" by swirling the mouse around. R emember the performance monitor and resist the urge. If your machine was close to crashing, "swirling the mouse" can, and often does, push it over the edge and actually cause the crash y ou were trying to avoid. Fr ankly, I'm often amazed that modern machines still r un at all, what with all the stuff they have to do.

There are Irish F estivals, Renaissance F airs, Star Trek Conventions and tattoo expos. But, for a growing segment of the community, celebrations haven't always been easy or accepted. That's why this year's Treasure C oast PrideFest, celebrating gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people, and its board members are ov erwhelmed with the community's support. "O ver the past few years, it seems interest in Pride of the Treasure Coast, and our efforts to help the community while putting on a great event, has increased," said Cory Pfister, president, Treasure Coast Pride. "W e' re a small board of officers and directors who work year-round to collect donations from the community. Every dollar that is brought in to the organization is put right back into supporting organizations like Parents, Family and Fr iends of Lesbians and G ays of Vero Beach, Project R esponse, St. Lucie County on Aging, and ultimately Pr ideFest." Pr ideFest welcomes many vendors, from companies and charitable organizations, to corporate sponsors and food and craft vendors. This year, there will be many new vendors, along with plenty of returning ones. "I think over the years the community has seen and recognizes our efforts and the vision we have for the Pride organization," Mr. Pfister said. "This coming year, the board of Pride of the Treasure Coast would like to focus on bringing new members, volunteers and committee members on board to help put on an amazing event, have fun and serve the community." Throughout the year Pr ide of the Treasure Coast puts on several events to help raise donations for Pr ideFest. The most successful and most talked about event is Dining with the Stars; a dinner and celebrity illusion event performed by entertainers from across the state.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY As part of its 25th anniversary celebration, the Environmental Learning C enter presented the first of two nature book readings, which was hosted by Vero B each Book Center on Mar ch 8. C ocktails and hors d'oeuvres were served along with anecdotes and inspiration that were shared with an enthusiastic audience by artist Rick Kelly and author C amille Yates as they r ecalled their experiences creating the book, "Treasured Waters." This compilation of masterful artwork includes interesting facts about the flora and fauna that make up the valued habitats of the magnificent Indian River Lagoon from Ponce Inlet in N ew Smyrna Beach to the J upiter Inlet. Books are still available at the Vero Beach B ook Center and ELC Gift S hop for purchase. The Environmental Learning Center is now looking forward to the second nature book reading, which will feature "Gone F ishing," a fishing-themed event for the entire family with local author Tamera W ill Wissinger at 6:30 p.m. on April 19. The upcoming event is sure to be a festive evening as the author shares her insight into creating the story of a nine-year-old boy's day of fishing. Sibling ri v alry, the bond between father and son, the excitement and difficulty of fishing, all add up to a day of adventure that any child would want to experience. Although this book is recommended for ages 6-11, it is enjoyed by all ages. Following a brief introduction, the author will give an interactive presentation on her new book. Children will then be encouraged to participate in fishing related eco-crafts. Books for purchase will be available and guests will have an opportunity to have it signed by the author. Snacks will be provided. Reservations are not r equired. "G one Fishing" will be available at Vero Beach Book C enter for purchase. F or more information visit www.DiscoverELC.org. With everybody getting his or her yards ready for spring, the one thing everybody wants is color. C olor is one of the main elements that make your yard stand out. One of the most practical ways is through the use of roses. Ro ses are beautiful flowers that symbolize love and friendship. Imagine y ourself entertaining your friends in a lovely alcove surrounded by colorful flowers. Roses are relatively easy to grow and are a great choice because they will often grow where other flowers won't because of F lorida's intense summer sun. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in w ell-drained soil in a sunny location. If y ou plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and eighteen inches deep. P ut a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the root system. The same would apply if you plant your roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your roses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. No w, it's finally time to plant your prize. Carefully r emove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in your prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. Now, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. You are now ready to water in your newly planted r ose. Y ou finally have your r oses planted and they are bursting with color, now y ou need to do some periodic maintenance to maintain that beauty. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if y ou prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get rid of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex reigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases, but also controls insect infestation as well. If y ou are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda? P lain ordinary baking soda added at the rate of three teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure, but will not work we ll if an infection is present. Be sure not to make y our mix too strong as damage to your roses could r esult. W ith all the remedies that we have at our disposal for controlling rose problems, probably the best way is prevention. One way is to avoid watering late in the day so the leaves of the plant do not stay wet all night. Also it is important to have good soil drainage. Ro ses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. Roses should be fed at least once a month. You can use a good quality commercial food or you can use y our own mix, which should consist of one cup of bone meal, one cup cottonseed meal, one-half cup blood meal, one-half cup fishmeal and one-half cup Epsom salts. You can spread this mix around each plant and then water in. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

At B ushwood Golf and C ountry Club in Farfaraway, New York, sides have been taken with regard to the club's lone mime member. Ye s, I said "mime." Gerard Pa r doo is a student of the late, great Marcel Marceau and a long-standing member at Bushwood. The problem seems to be in that the other members at this prestigious club no longer wish to see Mr. Pa r doo and his "antics." "I t started a couple years back when he petitioned the club to have a member/mime tournament," said Club President Joe Knowitall. "We have traditionally had a member/guest, but he wished to expand it to have mimes playing with every member. That was not acceptable to the rest of our membership." No w, in court papers filed on the first of this month, the club is taking action to expel Mr. Pardoo and re voke his membership. The documents filed cite that he is a distraction when playing, that he never speaks to anyone and that his makeup scares the children of other club members. Mr. Pardoo's response, sent through his attorney, states, "I have never been anything but the perfect member. Never have I voiced my opinions out loud. When I play I always hear the female members gossiping and interrupting the quiet others need to hit their shots. I do no such thing. I'm always quiet and r espectful." B ushwood's members offer a slightly different version. "H e used to be fun to play with, but now he is trying too hard," said one member who asked to not to be identified. "My daughter loved him when she was r eally small. Now, when he plays in the summer and his makeup runs from sweating in the heat, he looks very scary. He made my daughter cry the last time she saw him. She calls him 'the scary clown.'" Mr. Pardoo's attorney r esponded, "A clown? Se r iously? This just goes to show you the lack of understanding these people have for my client. A mime is nothing like a clown. A mime is a true artist, not a birthday party sideshow!" How ever, the complaints are coming in from more than just one member. "O ur members are complaining that his act is w earing thin," Mr. Knowitall continued. "Every time after hitting his tee shot he will not leave the tee box without going through the whole 'I'm stuck in an invisible box' routine. He then makes someone from the group go to his cart, r emove the key and come unlock the invisible door so that he can leave the tee box. It's funny on the first hole, but gets quite old about the third time." O ther complaints about Mr. Pardoo include having to use an imaginary rope to pull himself out of bunkers. M embers say that he always requires one or more players in his group to help pull on the rope to get him out of the trap. The court documents also state that Mr. Pardoo has become a hazard on the course. "H e never yells 'Fore!' when he hits a wayward shot," states the club's champion, Dave Shooter. "I was hit once by one of his many poor drives and he said nothing. He just stood there holding up four fingers and shrugged his shoulders." "H e also holds up play," said another member. "If his putt just misses and stops within an inch or two from going in, he will drop to the ground and use some sort of pantomime to get the ball to go in the hole. He pretends to pull on a string that's attached to the ball, or to use an imaginary pool cue to knock the ball in. He thinks it's darn funny that we're waiting to putt and he's going through this garbage. Soon I'm going to toss him in one of the lakes." Mr. Pardoo's written r esponse to these accusations was simple. "I'm using mime telepathy. It's like mental telepathy, but better (smiley face). As for throwing me in a lake, I'm not scared, I will just put myself in an airtight bubble and stroll out of the lake. Besides, with all the balls these numbskulls hit into the water, it can't be very deep." So the sides have been drawn in what could be a long and very nasty battle between the members at B ushwood. I'm unsure who I would side with, but I'm glad I don't have to be on the jury should it get that far. Stay tuned as I continue to watch this monumental case unfold.

This year's event will prove to be another exciting evening to celebrate the Gator Nation, featuring scholarship awards to local students and UF Athletic Di r ector, Jeremy Foley as keynote speaker. Mr. Foley has handled virtually every aspect of UF's $96 million athletic program during his administrative career, rising from a ticket intern in 1976, and now, in his 21st year as athletic director. He is widely r ecognized for moving UF A thletics into the upper echelon of college sports, but is also known for being equally committed to student-athlete success in the classroom, said Anthony G uettler, Treasure Coast G ator Club president. "This is going to be an evening to remember," Mr. G uettler said. "Not only is Je r emy Foley a great role model for our scholarship r ecipients, but he will give us an incredible perspective on the condition and future of UF sports. Everyone is excited and honored to welcome Mr. Foley to the Treasure Coast." In addition to Foley's keynote address, the Club will present more than $25,000 in scholarships to 18 students from Indian River and St. Lucie County who will attend UF in Ga inesville or the UF Indian River Research and E ducation Center in Fort Pierce in the fall. The evening will also include a sit-down dinner, one-of-akind silent auction items and vendors selling unique G ator gear. The Treasure Coast Gator T oast, is the signature event of the Treasure Coast G ator Club, which has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to local UF students since 2007. Mr. G uettler said the Club's scholarship program is different from others because it is open to all students from Indian River or St. L ucie County who are pursuing an undergraduate degree from UF, not just graduating high school seniors. "With our program, we want to make sure that great students, who need a little help to complete their education, have the support they need," Mr. Guettler said. "Our scholarships are very helpful for older students pursuing a bachelor's degree, who have more limited options for applying for scholarship support." The Gator Toast is the major fundraising event for the scholarship program. O ther sources of funding are named scholarships which this year include the Arthur and Marian Block Endowment Fund, the Br yan Schirard Memorial F und, the Elizabeth F. Addison Memorial Scholarship, the Clint S. Malone Memor ial Scholarship, the Mark and Robbie Pierce for the Ha r dee Family Foundation Scholarship, and a scholarship in honor of Ray and B eth Smith given by Trey S mith. The Club also hosts a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. The Treasure Coast Gator Club is a 501(c)3 organization governed by a local board of directors that celebrates UF and provides networking opportunities for local alumni and UF fans alike.

Mental Health Association secures new fundingINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The United Way of Indian River County Board of Di r ectors voted to grant $30,000 to the Mental H ealth Association for "stabilization funding" at their Ma r ch 19 meeting. This is in addition to the $80,000 already awarded the organization through the annual U nited Way Community In vestment process for Fiscal Year 2012-13. R epresentatives from the Association presented details on the recent activities of the MHA board and staff while requesting the additional financial support. Ken Felten, MHA vice chairman, led the presentation, providing insights into their developing business plan and giving an overview of actions taken by the board since the beginning of the year. A ctions taken include; a financial analysis, including both historical and projected operational costs through the end of the curr ent fiscal year; work begun on a fund development plan; progress on an organizational effectiveness audit; and an external communications plan. "O ur board was impressed with the progress made and exceptional commitment already demonstrated by interim CEO, R obert Brugnoli, and the MHA Board of Directors," said United Way CEO, M ichael Kint. "We are looking forward to a bright future for that organization and, as a result, for mental health services in our community." The United Way Board expressed its thanks for the extraordinary effort the MHA Board is giving in service to this community and voted on the funding in support of the excellent work being done. U nited Way of Indian River County is encouraging people in the community to LIVE UNITED by donating to the annual campaign, helping spread the word about programs and services that help people in need, and volunteering their time and talent to a local cause.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The combination of alcohol, drugs and romantic entanglements led to gunfire and six injuries over Easter weekend and the trend must not continue, said local law enforcement. In a press conference on Apr il 1, Indian River County S heriff Deryl Loar asked the community to help law enforcement by cooperating with the ongoing investigations of the three shooting events that occurred last weekend, two of which in Gifford are thought to be r elated. The largest incident happened on the evening of Mar ch 31 in front of Smiths Grocery store within a group of more than 200 people, and is thought to have been related to a drive-by shooting on March 30 in front of Shake Your B ooty nightclub, law enforcement officials said. The third shooting is a homicide investigation and although no one has been charged, detectives are watching a person of interest in the case, the sheriff said. While there is overwhelming physical evidence to charge in the three shootings and suspects, witnesses and victims are being asked to step up and assist Indian River County S heriffs detectives in wrapping up the cases, Sheriff Loar said. There will be arrests coming, he said. The Rev. Benny Rhyant, president of the Indian River County Pastors Association, called for the community to be involved, but not just when a problem occurs. He said he wants members of the Gifford community to stop coming up with excuses and work together with law enforcement to prevent things like this from happening in the future. T ry to find a sober solution, not just react emotionally, the Rev. Rhyant said. The first shooting occurred on March 30 in the early morning hours in Ve ro Beach. Two men, thought to be brothers or step-brothers, were involved in an altercation that turned into a homicide. The victim, John Ross, 29, was transported by emergency personnel to I ndian River Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead on the scene. He was shot at least once, but no further details were released at press time. Scott Collins, 24, is considered a person of interest in the case, but as of press time, had only been charged with possession of cocaine. Fi ve people were injured during the March 31 shooting, including a 1y ear-old who was struck by glass. None of the people have been identified. After a car show in Gifford, hundreds of people migrated to the vicinity of S miths Grocery store. S heriff Loar said two suspects from Fort Pierce had a fistfight with two young men from Gifford, which turned into a gunfight near the storefront. The shooting is thought to have been a continuation of a verbal altercation and drive-by shooting at the Shake You Booty nightclub on March 30. D etectives believe the shootings involved relationships between a young lady and young men and possibly including drug or alcohol. A r ecipe for not a good night, Sheriff Loar said.

Three-year-old P aige Stoll, of Sebastian, kills time with her mom F elicia while they wait for the city of Sebastians annual Easter Egg Hunt to get started Saturday. Cliff Partlow staff photographer Cliff Partlow /staff photographerThe City of Sebastian pulled out all of the stops Saturday for the annual Easter Egg Hunt in Riverview Park. An estimated 800 brightly colored eggs and probably as many toys were up for grabs by the nearly 300 children on hand. Four-year-olds Marley Miller, left, and Payge Anderson took their egg hunting to next level. By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.comINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Buddy Verderber comes from a family used to championships and he hopes to continue that pattern in the future. The former Sebastian River High School and I ndian River State College graduate and triathlete is setting his eyes on the prize and is raising funds to compete at an elite amateur event, The W orld Championships in Hy de Park, London, later this year. Mr. Verderber has qualified as a member of the USA triathlon team to compete in the race which is expected to draw 3,000 international ra cers from 40 countries. Although he has made the team, he is still expected to pay for all of his expenses, so his family has organized a local fundraiser to help propel him to his goal. The fundraiser will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. on Ap ri l 13 at the Tiki Bar and Grill on 1130 Indian River Drive in Sebastian. The event will include a silent auction, door prize drawing and a cornhole tournament. I t all started with competitive swimming in high school and I just wanted to prove everyone that anything is possible, Mr. Verderber said. In his high school career at Sebastian River H igh School, Mr. Verderber challenged himself with swimming and dabbled in running. He continued swimming at the collegiate level but added r unning and biking to r ound out his triathlon training after suggestions from friends. One source of inspiration for him however, is his father, Bud Verderber. M y dad mentioned to me that he had completed everything on his bucket list except an Ir onman, Mr. Verderber said. An Ironman is a long distance race organized by the World Triathlon C orporation.

Lauren Book, a nationally recognized advocate for sexually abused children and founder of the nonprofit, Laurens Kids, stopped in Vero Beach on Mar ch 28 as part of her 1,500 mile journey across the state to raise awareness of sexual abuse and encourage other victims to speak about their experiences. He r stop in Vero Beach was at the county tax collectors office. Tax Collector Carole Jean Jordan said Ms. Books story and mission is incredible and needs to be shared. She is an amazing y oung lady and she and her dad have made something positive out of what could have been so debilitating to her, Ms. Jor dan said. Ms. Book was a victim of sexual abuse for six y ears at the hands of a female nanny. Her book, I t s OK to Tell: A Story of H ope and Recovery, tells the physical and sexual abuse she went through and the process with which she mustered the courage to talk about it.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Representatives from private foundations gathered Tuesday, March 19 at the newly launched Foundation Forum hosted by the I ndian River Community F oundation. The sessions topic, Children and Youth: The New Fa ce of Homelessness, gave the representatives an opportunity to learn about this little-talked about subject in Indian River County, the nonprofit organizations addressing the need and the opportunities private foundations have to impact the issue. F our organizations, including representatives from the Indian River C ounty School District, Childrens Home Society, H ibiscus Childrens Center and United For Families, served on a panel that provided the group with broad statistics about the subject of youth and homelessness in our community, along with specific information about how their organization is addressing the issues. The Forum concluded with a dynamic discussion between panel and foundation representatives. The next Foundation For um is April 9 and will focus on Indian River Lagoon: Concern or Crisis featuring representatives from the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Pr ogram, Indian River Land Tr ust, Ocean Research and C onservation Association and Harbor Branch. The Foundation Forum is an informal group interested in learning about community needs, discussing critical issues in charitable giving and becoming acquainted with others who share the philanthropic spirit, said P aul Becker, a board member of the Indian River C ommunity Foundation and chairman of the Foundation Forum. It is open to any person who is a trustee or board member of a priv ate foundation, which conservative estimates show about 200 such people living at least seasonally in Indian River County. M any of these foundations are family foundations, which often have the greatest flexibility to impact an issue through their grant-making programs, Mr. Becker said. The Foundation Forum is our way of giving these representatives tools to understand Indian River County needs and specific ways they can get involved if they so choose. The concept of the Foundation Forum was developed in 1996 as the brainchild of Ellie McCabe, Chairman of the The Robert F. and Eleonora W. McCabe F oundation. From 1996 through 2004, Ms. McCabe convened four meetings each season for foundation trustees. Ms. McCabe turned her focus elsewhere in 2005 and the Foundation For um remained dormant until Becker revived it this y ear through the Indian River Community Foundation. Mr. Becker stressed that the Foundation Forum is not a fundraiser, but rather a convening of private foundation trustees around a specific community issue for meaningful discussion. I t could be that a representative has no interest in giving to the specific issue being discussed, but the conversation will spark ideas that a can be translated to other causes Ms. B ecker said. The most important result is the opportunity to learn alongside other trustees to further philanthropic knowledge and engagement. The Indian River Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving I ndian River County through donor driven philanthropy. The Foundation currently manages over $18 million in assets restricted for charitable purposes, the majority of which are held in donor advised funds. To attend the Foundation For um, a person must serve on the board of directors or be employed by a private, grant-making foundation.

There is a critical link between mental health services and crime prevention, and we fully appreciate the work the Collaborative is doing.

Photo courtesy of Margaret Ostman Benefit dinner to feature The Man with the Golden VoiceINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Salvation Army of Indian River County has announced that The Man W ith The Golden Voice Ted W illiams will be the keynote speaker at The Soap, Soup and Salvation Benefit Dinner taking place from 5 to 8 p.m. on April 6 at The Oak Harbor Club House in Vero Beach. Mr. Williams gained widespread media attention in early December 2010 when a passerby taped him homeless and standing next to traffic holding a cardboard sign with a hand-written advertisement of his voice and a request for donations. The clip of him and his gorgeous radio voice was then posted on YouTube, the video went viral and ov ernight launched him as the homeless man with the golden voice. Mr. Williams has since r eceived numerous jobs that include becoming the official voice for New England Cable N ews, The Golden Voice of Love to promote Krafts Mac & Cheese TV campaign which launched on ESPN during the 2011 Craft Fight Hunger Bowl and is a sought after speaker on the issue of addiction and homelessness. In M ay of 2012 he authored the book, A Golden Voice: How F aith, Hard Work, and H umility Brought Me from the Streets to Salvation. In his book, Mr. Williams puts all the pieces together to give an unforgettable, honest account of life on the streets. N othing is held back, as Mr. W illiams takes the reader through theft, crack houses, and homeless shelters in a search, ultimately, for r edemption and hope. Along the way, we see his r elationship with his longterm girlfriend, Kathy, grow into an unlikely and inspiring love story, and we hear the Golden Voice of God lead him from the selfishness of crime to the humility of the street corner almost a year before he was discovered on that highway entrance ramp. Mr. W illiams proves that no one, no matter how degraded, is never too lost for a second chance. The event will begin at 5 p .m. with light hors doeuvres and cocktails from the cash bar and dinner followed by T ed Williams sharing his inspirational journey and experiences with homelessness, addiction and finding S alvation along with his new found fame and experiences ov er the last two years. Before and after the event, Mr. Wi lliams will be signing books available for purchase. No tickets are sold for this event and RSVPs are going fast. The Salvation Army will ask for a donation at the end of the event that will be matched by one anonymous donation of $10,000. The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church, has been supporting those in need in H is name without discrimination since 1865. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army. Each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children in this community. About 84 cents of every dollar raised is used to carry out those services in Indian River County.

Ellie said she was picking up trash, so the animals dont eat it (trash) and get sick and die. Both families were in town visiting their dad Bill Dawe of Sebastian. Cliff Partlow staff photographer What immigration reform is really aboutLets be perfectly clear. Comprehensive Immigration R eform, or more accurately, Amnesty for Illegal Aliens, is about one thing and one thing only: votes. Any person in government who says anything, and I mean anything different is lying. Amnesty is here again (after being r oundly trounced by We, the People on multiple occasions) because the Democrats want votes to get in and keep themselves in power in our government at all levels, local, state, and federal. Its clearly not about whats best for the country and its citizens or else Amnesty wouldnt even be discussed for one second. Liberal Sanctuary Cities across the country are controlled by Democrats. Now, even some Republicans are willing to accept Amnesty because they lost at the polls in the last election. Its all about votes and these people will destroy the country to get them. Anyone who votes for Amnesty should be tried for treason. At the very least they must be targeted for defeat at the polls and kicked out of government for abject failure of their duties to the people who elected them, you know, American Citizens.Obamaism?Ev eryday living is made up of choices. For every negative there is a positive. Being gay is one of them. I believe gays should have the same rights all Americans enjoy as to work, education, achievement, etc. We are not to judge, but are to leave all judging to God. The big decision in Congress now is whether to enact Gay Marriage into law along with many other Godless and unconstitutional trappings liberals are shoving down our throats. Gays make their own choices, but same sex marriages must not be Enacted into Law. TV sitcoms today would be considered pornography fifty years ago. Blasphemy, homosexuality (as being funny, the norm, or family orientated). Audiences laughing like crazy at sexual situations and corny sexual jokes. Certain Reality programs, men choosing women, women choosing men, totally sexual, are not entertaining, funny, nor are they intelligent. M others entering five year old girls into beauty contests made up to look 21. Kids have no childhood. All this has slipped slowly and silently into our lives and the lives of our kids. Being a young country we have come a long way as to choices, decisions and the lack of blessings. So, where do we stand today? We have Obamaism with his sadistic and satanic decisions (choices) on the table, while our country is failing fast. O ur oceans are polluted with oil, garbage, dead animals washing up on shore. The coral reefs of Florida are infected in some areas. Only one percent of water on earth is fit for human and animal consumption. Certain fish are extinct. Devastating winter and summer storms and draught bombarding the U. S. causing food loss and prices to soar. The horrible abuse of children and crime fill our neighborhoods. Obama is not interested in these problems and has never put America first. Our so-called leader will raise taxes of One Tr illion Dollars over the next 10 years. How much is that in one year? Thats insane! Will the Working Middle Class be able to pay this? In ten years there would be no jobs and the entire population would be on welfare. What welfare? Where and how are all these millions and millions of immigrants expected to go? Most cannot speak English, wont find jobs (there arent any), or pay taxes. Taking so much away from certain people and giving so much to others will meet in a huge crash. What part of this does ignorance not understand? I am fed up with Obamaism, wimpy Republicans and D emocrats who will not staunchly fight him. Others have shed much blood, given their lives for many years to fight dictators all over the world. Americans are still dying and shedding blood for the freedom of this country. Lawmakers and all Americans must stand tall, act like men and women of God, and make the right decisions regarding all negative choices for the good of all.Stop tossing trashEv ery day my dogs and I walk or bike ride Fleming Grant R d. between Micco Rd. and the railroad tracks. Daily, there is new evidence of beer alcoholics, rum drinkers and cancer stick smokers throwing their garbage on the side of the road, r ather than putting their cans of Bud, Bush, etc. bottles, cigar ette packages in a receptacle at the local Cumberland Fa rm s, Winn-Dixie store or even the re-cycle or garbage can at home. Obviously these people are lacking in education, good manners and a strong moral upbringing, never learning not to litter. Y ou cant call these people smart. Why? Read the following: One woman throws her empty cigarette boxes out the window. She put her credit card in the cellophane alongside the box. When spotted alongside the road, it was taken to the issuing Wells Fargo bank, where everyone had a good laugh. Another individual who also would fail a Mensa screening likes to put his Bud cans, Camel cigarettes boxes and scratch tickets in plastic bags and toss the alongside the road. This person couldnt even read his winning scratch ticket for $50.00. Thank you Mr. Trash throwing out that bag of garbage cost you and made me a winner. One day I noticed an empty McDonald bag, drink container and wrappers someone threw out the window onto Fleming Grant Rd. there was a $1.00 dollar bill laying alongside the bag. Upon further investigation inside the bag was a $10.00 bill more ones and small change. This highly uneducated person chucked the balance of their purchase in the bag and forgot. It is doubtful the persons who litter our road can or ever will read this rant, but perhaps when you read this, you might recognize someone you know that would benefit from this story and in telling or repeating it, you just might wake up the trash who are throwing garbage on Fleming Grant R oad.Close Video ArcadesDont our politicians have anything better to do than interfere with a persons right to enjoy and entertain themselves as they wish, as long as no harm is done to others. Well, heres my suggestion. If they are so concerned about video gaming, lets shut them down and convert them into Strip Clubs. That doesnt seem to be on anyones radar now. Just think of the benefits. Instead of a few game repair clerks, we would employ hundreds of ladies in the workforce, increasing the tax base. And those folks that visit the arcades? Im sure they will involve themselves in this new form of entertainment. B ut what about those seniors? Not a problem, after a visit to the clubs, theyll go back to their community. Its about time we gave the Villages a run for their money in the world of STDs. Hey, that would probably force the Health Department to reopen more clinics, employing more people. Personally, I dont see a down side Its a win-win situation. 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. In the four years before I took office, Florida lost more than 825,000 jobs, unemployment more than tripled from 3.5 percent to 11.1 percent, and state debt increased by $5.2 billion. T oday, our businesses have created more than 280,000 new private sector jobs, Floridas unemployment rate has dropped below the national average to 7.8 percent, we have paid down state debt by $2 billion; and we are not stopping there. We cut taxes, eliminated thousands of r egulations on job creators, and invested in education. It s working. B ecause we made the hard choices over the last two years, we are able to make the smart choices to keep our economy growing this year. We have a projected budget surplus for the first time in six years. Our challenges are different in this budget, but our goal is absolutely the same: economic growth and job creation. This year, we have two priorities to keep our economy growing: first, r emove the sales tax on manufacturing equipment to create more manufacturing jobs, and second, invest in our teachers by providing them a well-deserved pay r aise. Our Florida Families F irst Budget supports these priorities while maintaining substantial reserves. This is r esponsible stewardship of taxpayer money. Why are we so focused on creating jobs and improving education? Why do we focus on putting Florida Families F irst in our budget? Because every Florida family wants not just to dream, but to have the opportunity to make those dreams come true. We must invest in our education system, support our teachers and cut taxes to help create more jobs. O ur work to cut spending and live within our means ov er the last two years has allowed us to once again invest in education. Student learning is important to the economy because the workers of tomorrow are in F lorida classrooms today. The single most important factor in student learning is the quality of teaching. That is why we eliminated teacher tenure, and signed performance pay into law. It will take effect in 2014. Floridas education system is making tremendous progress, due in large part to our great teachers and many in the Legislature. The best way we can build on this progress is to reward our hard-working teachers with a $2,500 pay raise. S ome say they are afraid that giving raises to all teachers may mean that a teacher doing a bad job gets r ewarded. But, thanks to our work, we are now in a better position than ever before to r eward good teachers and move bad teachers out of the classroom. We dont want a war on teachers; we want a war on failure. An investment in Florida teachers is an investment in F loridas future because teachers change lives. That is why our budget increases K-12 education funding by more than $1.2 billion. This billion dollar commitment builds on our billion dollar investment in K-12 education last year and our total education investment in state funding for K12 schools this year is the highest state funding level in Florida history. As long as even one Florida family needs a job, our work is not done. That is why we are committed to removing the sales tax on manufacturing equipment. Florida is one of only a few states with this tax, and we lag behind the nation in per capita manufacturing jobs. Manufacturing has a major impact on our economy because every manufacturing job supports two to three other jobs in our state. I believe Florida will be the number one place in the world for job creation, the number one place in the world to get a great education and the number one place in the world where families can afford to live. Ev erything we have done together over the last two y ears has been geared toward economic growth. It s working.Investing in jobs and education works GOVERNORRICK S COTT Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Allow your kid to start drinking at home and they could be one of them. According to the Drug Free Action Alliance, Every day more than six teens die from non-driving, alcohol related causes, like falls, drowning and suicide. Dont tell your kids not to go to parties, but then allow them to drink in your house. Lock up or hide your alcohol and stop giving your kids mixed messages about alcohol use. If you really care about your children, be their parent, not their friend. Set clear rules for your kids that state no drinking, anywhere, at any time, until they are 21. When teens drink alcohol before they turn 21, studies show that they have more of these problem behaviors: 1. More sex, especially unprotected sex. 2. Stealing or skipping school. 3. Fighting. 4. Greater risk of becoming dependent on alcohol. Y ou cared about their every move when they were y oung, dont stop now or their life may be done.

Tr uMobility and Azzly, both businesses based in Ve ro Beach, beat out 32 other companies for first and second place in the business plan competition, earning them cash prizes and free legal, accounting and mentoring advice from event presenters, the nonfor-profit Research Coast Pr icipium Foundation. As first place winner, TruMo bility was awarded $25,000 based on their business plan presentation during the March 21 competition. The timed presentations were given to four venture capitalist judges and seven members of the foundation. Cor etta Dorado, Azzlys founder, CEO and president said the process was difficult, but fun at the same time. When your head has been down for the past five y ears trying to get going, being recognized and visible is just great. Its a validation of what you are, and that is crucial for a new company, Ms. Dorado said. As the second place winner, Azzly was awarded $15,000 in cash prizes, which will all be put into building the company and its profile in the medical community, Ms. Dorado said. A zzly bills itself as a oneclick patient care management company. Basically, A zzly provides small to mid-size medical practices and clinics a program to manage electronic health r ecords, patient health information, claims and clearing house records, as w ell as revenue information, all in one secure and seamlessly integrated system. The system allows physicians and administrative personnel to schedule appointments, record patient visits, health outcomes, manage billing, and more, all in one place, instead of going back and forth between other systems that only manage one area, Ms. Dorado said. American consumers are accustomed to doing many things electronically, shopping, banking, booking for v acations, and in general people are comfortable with retrieving personal information online. W e re all patients at one time or another, and todays technology allows us to have electronic medical r ecords, but yet, its not something most people have available to them, Ms. Dorado said. By offering a streamlined system at a competitive price, the medical community can embrace the new technology and give the consumers a way to be accountable for their care and health by having the records available in a timely and accessible way. Tr uMobility offers companies a way to integrate cell phones with corporate business phones. As a result of the integrated system, TruMobility can lower the communication costs for a business. The system can also increase mobile productivity and eliminate coverage gaps in an office space. A user would have one phone number and voicemail box and calls can be moved seamlessly between the desk and mobile phone. The Research Coast Principium Foundation is dedicated to developing economic opportunity by facilitating interaction between professionals, investors and the emerging business community. The competition was open to businesses in Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties.

Survivors may register for the Relay without attending the fundraiser. R egistration will also be from 5 to 7 p.m. Relay For Life is a unique opportunity for our community to come together to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember those weve lost, and fight back against the disease, said Jessica K eaton, Relay For Life of Nor th Indian River, event chairwoman and assistant principal at Sebastian River High School.

The American Association of Retired Persons is offering low-cost refresher drivers classes for members and members of the general public in Indian River County in April. The six-hour classroombased instruction reviews safe driving procedures, r oad signs and markings, F lorida laws and ways to cope with the effects of aging on driving, said B etty Wellington, course facilitator, in an email. I t boosts driving awareness and how to improve driving skills, minimize crash risks and increases confidence, she said. The AARP safe driving materials also include vision and seating tips for older drivers. F or example, purchasing a car with deeply tinted windows could limit visibility for night driving, and having the appropriate eyewear for daytime versus nighttime driving would also be helpful. When it comes to being seated in the driver seat, making sure the seatbelt, steering wheel and head r estraint are all in the corr ect position is important as well. The seatbelt should lie flat on the collarbone, the steering wheel should allow for clear visibility of the dashboard and the road, and the head r estraint should be touching the center of the back of the head. The driving safety class cost for AARP members is $12 and $14 for non-members. The class includes a workbook and supplement and a DVD component for certain sections of the class, Ms. Wellington said. As an added bonus, not only will drivers who take the class learn how to be safer on the roads, there is also a potential insurance savings to be had, she said. Usually insurance companies will give a 5 percent to 10 percent discount to individuals who complete the safety course, though the amount may vary from person to person. Classes are held in various locations in the county. A class will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on April 8 and April at the Boys and G irls Club in Vero Beach. To r egister, call (772) 7137129. Another class is scheduled for April 10 and April 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p .m. at the North Indian River County Library in S ebastian. To register, call (772) 562-6031.

It was quickly becoming a favorite dining spot of ours. But our first visit almost didnt happen. A few weeks ago Id made r eservations there for our anniversary. When I told her where wed be dining, her r esponse was, A cafe? Youre taking me to a cafe for our anniversary? Luckily for me, it was every bit as good as Id heard and she went home with a smile! The restaurant is cozy. It seats less than 35, and is decorated in a rooster motif that reminds me of my grandmothers kitchen in the country. B ut, theres no hash slinging here. The menu was full of appetizers and entrees that youd find at high-end r estaurants. They also had an impressive wine list with some of the best labels. That night, my wife thoroughly enjoyed Salmon W ellington in a puffed pastry with a fantastic lemondill creme sauce. I was lucky enough to have ordered the Po rk Osso Bucco. It was the size of a softball and smothered in a delicious balsamic glaze. The outer skin was crispy and the meat just melted off of the bone. We met three couples at the table next to us who ra ved about the Red Rooster. I t s our favorite place, one said. It turns out that the ow ner, Steve Hahn, and my wife are both from Wisconsin. In fact, Steves first r estaurant job was at a place that my wife had frequented. The evening was a hit, and we we re so amazed that there could be such a great r estaurant off the beaten path. So when we heard that there would be a wine dinner a few weeks later, we knew we couldnt miss it. When we arrived for the dinner, we were greeted with a warm smile by Steves wife, Joti. She runs the front of the restaurant while Steve handles the kitchen. They had met while they both worked at the Yellow Dog C afe in Malabar, where S teve had been the executive chef for many years. They married, started a family and six years ago decided to open their own place. The name Hahn is German for rooster, so hence the Red Rooster was born. We enjoyed Caprese S alad, Prince Edward Island M ussels in a creamy pesto sauce and a fantastic Veal S altimbocca. My wife only r ecently began eating mussels, but raved about these. The Saltimbocca consisted of veal scallopine layered with paper-thin prosciutto and fresh mozzarella, then finished with a delicious lemon-butter wine sauce. The veal was perfectly prepared and very tender. J im and Sally from Vintage S election provided the wines and one of the winemakers, Lee Skelton Venturini del Grecco, graced us with her presence. A former model, her estate in Italy, C astelnuovo Tancredi, produces some amazing wine. Their LAssedio DOC was very impressive. Its a w ell-balanced blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Colorino. Its full-bodied with great structure and powerful tannins. So good, in fact, that we bought two bottles to enjoy at home. We topped off our meal with the most amazing Tir amisu that Ive ever had. The ladyfingers soaked in the espresso with mascarpone and cocoa were out of this world. Once again, the Red R ooster Cafe lived up to its r eputation as one of the areas best-kept secrets. We left with the feeling that we dined with friends. My wife and I cant wait until the next wine dinner on April 22. We hope that S teve and Joti save us a seat.

The most popular exhibit at the museum this spring is Recycled Dreams: Pablo C anos Marionettes, a show that combines human imagination and ingenuity with satire, humor and r epurposed objects for a creative display that stimulates intergenerational conversation. Mr. Cano is a South Florida artist with a talent for found-object sculpture and uses his marionettes in his ow n productions. Born in C uba, but raised in the U.S., Mr. Cano and his family we re on the last flight out of C uba before the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. This is Mr. Canos first exhibit outside South Florida, said Jay Williams, museum curator. At any given time in the Schumann Gallery, children or adults can be seen exploring the hall with the 24 different pieces of art that happen to be marionettes. Some of the pieces are just fun and silly, but others are recreations of old famous works of art, said Mr. Williams. One of the most interesting and detailed art history homages is Giovanni Arnolfini and his Wife, which is a mixed media design based on the Portrait of Giovanni Arnolfini and his Wife by painter Jan v an Eyck. Mr. Cano was able to r eproduce the intricate details of the painting using var ious household objects and what some people might consider rubbish. In a clear sign of the times, one family was looking at a digital picture of the original painting and comparing itCliff Partlow /staff photographerThe pig in a tux, Boring Boris, is just one of many pieces in The Recycled Dreams: Pablo Canos Marionettes now on display through May 26.

The workshop is facilitated by SCO RE Counselor Tom Spear. W hile there is no fee to participate in the workshop, reservations are required due to limited seating.

Call the Chamber (772) 567-3491 ext. 116 for additional information.FRIDAY, APRIL 26 The annual luncheon of T he National League of American Pen Women, Vero Beach Branch, will be held at noon at the Italian Grill, 2180 5 8th Avenue, Vero Beach. Members are encouraged to share their creative works in the areas of Art, Music, andto the marionette sculpture in the gallery, exclaiming each time they found a matching detail. No matter the age of the museum visitor, everyone is fascinated by the recycled pieces used by Mr. Cano in creating the unusual marionettes. Someone with a good eye might even be able to identify a sink and a shopping cart among the framework for his creations. O ther items in his masterpieces include foil from cigarette packets, cheese graters, taillights, babydoll eyes, baskets, gasoline cans and a buoy. O ther fascinating marionettes recognizable historical figures, include an 8foot tall sculpture of Queen Mar ie Antoinette, a Fred Astaire and a Louis Armstrong. The darkest and most sinister marionette in the room is a cigar-smoking, top hatw earing man-spider called D r. D eath aka Fidel Castro. H e obviously does not have a positive view of Mr. C astro, Mr. Williams said with a chuckle. I nterestingly, one of the eyeballs of Dr. Death is a tiny baseball, alluding to the Cuban dictators pitching talents early on in his life. M ost people dont know that he was being scouted to play here in the U.S., Mr. W illiams said. F or the most part, Mr. C ano finds his own materials, but sometimes people drop off objects at his house in case he can use them. I t s an incredibly intriguing story in this exhibit. You can see politics, art history, history and religion because he pulls from all ov er the culture, Mr. W illiams said. Ev en technology is present in Mr. Canos designs with pieces from his Seven W onders of the Modern W orld production, Amaz ona, Face-Booka, and G oogle Lina. H e pokes a little fun at our dependence on social media and the Internet, Mr. Williams said. The exhibit also includes a video of Mr. Canos marionettes in action and during production.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Quail and venison and gator, oh my! One of the newest fundraising traditions of the Ve ro Beach Oceanside R otary Club is to host a wild game feast and once again this hotly anticipated event will benefit community individuals with special needs. S unUp ARC, a nonprofit agency serving the needs of the developmentally and intellectually disabled, just celebrated one year since two like-minded nonprofits merged together to create the organization. This will be the second y ear Oceanside Rotary has partnered with SunUp ARC for the exciting fundraiser, said Elaine Jones, event coordinator. The event is scheduled for Apr il 27 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will include loads of food for everyone to try, an auction, games and musical entertainment, she said. The feast will take place at B ig Racks Processing, 7065 21st St. Southwest, Vero B each. Tickets to the event are $30 in advance or $40 at the door. Children 12 and y ounger are free. Par ticipants will get to try many kinds of wild game, including gator, quail, pheasant and venison, as w ell as frog legs, fish and barbeque pork, Ms. Jones said. W e have the finest hunter-chefs and they love to cook their own food, she said. The rotary club will also be bringing side dishes to r ound out the meal and there will be an oyster and clam bar. Be verages will include beer, soda, teas and water. Cor nhole games and bullwhip-cracking competitions are certain to be the popular forms of entertainment, along with local musical guests, Old Barber Br idge, Ms. Jones said. The auction will include donated items from local and national companies, including Bass Pro Shops and the Wild Turkey Federation. S unUp ARC clients will also be participating in the fundraiser, possibly helping out with the entertainment, said Chuck Bradley, executive director. T his past year has been a busy one in the life of the nonprofit, he said. In addition to merging two organizations into one, the clientele has continued to grow and SunUp ARC now serves 180 clients, an increase of nearly 30 percent. In 2012, SunUp ARC formed an advocacy committee to bring awareness to the community about the needs of people with disabilities. This past March, thanks to the donations of members of the community, the committee was able to take their message to Tallahassee during Disabilities A wareness Day. While in Tallahassee, P atricia Moody, Scott Connelly, Michelle Penly and N atalie Urquhart spoke to legislators, asking them to r emove the r-word in legislation referencing people with disabilities. H ouse Bill 1119 and its companion bill Senate Bill 142, are currently in the committee stages and would remove the term mental retardation and r eplace it with intellectual disabilities in all legislative language documents and state statutes, Mr. Bradley said. The four SunUp advocacy committee members were able to share with legislators how the r-word makes them feel, how degrading it is and how it destroys selfesteem, he said. The whole trip was funded by an outpouring of community support. We r eally thank everyone, Mr. Br adley said. The bills have not yet come to the floors of either the state House or Senate.

I dont know how many times I have been discussing something with a person as their machine sits idle when, all of a sudden, chug chug chug, the hard drive starts working furiously. Or even more surprising, the machine suddenly crashes, even though no one was at the wheel. Invariably they look at me and ask, Why did it just do that? S ometimes people have a hard time accepting that even though they are not pushing the mouse, typing away or actively doing something, their machine is not resting. The reality is that even when your computer appears inactive, it is still very busy with general housekeeping. There are tasks like monitoring the keyboard for input, painting the image on the display (dozens of times per second) or watching to see if the mouse moves. The list of chores goes on. Seriously, the list goes on and on and on! The tasks that your computer is constantly performing in the background are necessary for the function of the computer and are controlled, for the most part, by the operating system Windows. J ust because we, the users, arent giving the computer any input or are not paying attention to whats going on the display does not mean that the computer gets to take a break until we come back. Nope. As long as there is power to the machine and its turned on, your computer is very busy indeed. U nderstanding that your computer is busy doing something all the time can help ease the fear that something is wrong. I know that when a computer user spends a small fortune on a new machine, it can be pretty disconcerting when, for no apparent reason, their new machine starts chugging and groaning. M any people are also surprised to find out just how much brain power it takes for their computer to move the mouse. People dont realize that even something as simple or basic as moving the mouse pointer takes so much of the computers resources. Often I will see someone move their mouse in big swirls just to make sure the machine is working not r ealizing that moving the mouse will actually distract the computer, drawing its attention away from the task at hand. Lets see just how much brainpower it takes your machine to move your mouse. Click the task bar with the right mouse button and then click Task Manager. In Task Manager, click the Performance Tab and take a look at the CPU U sage History. This will display your computers brain activity on a graph that is updated every second or so. Move your mouse in big arcs about the screen. You can see how hard the computer has to work just to move the mouse. Now, next time your machine is busy and you wonder if your machine has crashed, you may be tempted to test it by swirling the mouse around. R emember the performance monitor and resist the urge. If your machine was close to crashing, swirling the mouse can, and often does, push it over the edge and actually cause the crash y ou were trying to avoid. Fr ankly, Im often amazed that modern machines still r un at all, what with all the stuff they have to do.

There are Irish F estivals, Renaissance F airs, Star Trek Conventions and tattoo expos. But, for a growing segment of the community, celebrations havent always been easy or accepted. Thats why this years Treasure C oast PrideFest, celebrating gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual people, and its board members are ov erwhelmed with the communitys support. O ver the past few years, it seems interest in Pride of the Treasure Coast, and our efforts to help the community while putting on a great event, has increased, said Cory Pfister, president, Treasure Coast Pride. W e re a small board of officers and directors who work year-round to collect donations from the community. Every dollar that is brought in to the organization is put right back into supporting organizations like Parents, Family and Fr iends of Lesbians and G ays of Vero Beach, Project R esponse, St. Lucie County on Aging, and ultimately Pr ideFest. Pr ideFest welcomes many vendors, from companies and charitable organizations, to corporate sponsors and food and craft vendors. This year, there will be many new vendors, along with plenty of returning ones. I think over the years the community has seen and recognizes our efforts and the vision we have for the Pride organization, Mr. Pfister said. This coming year, the board of Pride of the Treasure Coast would like to focus on bringing new members, volunteers and committee members on board to help put on an amazing event, have fun and serve the community. Throughout the year Pr ide of the Treasure Coast puts on several events to help raise donations for Pr ideFest.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY As part of its 25th anniversary celebration, the Environmental Learning C enter presented the first of two nature book readings, which was hosted by Vero B each Book Center on Mar ch 8. C ocktails and hors doeuvres were served along with anecdotes and inspiration that were shared with an enthusiastic audience by artist Rick Kelly and author C amille Yates as they r ecalled their experiences creating the book, Treasured Waters. This compilation of masterful artwork includes interesting facts about the flora and fauna that make up the valued habitats of the magnificent Indian River Lagoon from Ponce Inlet in N ew Smyrna Beach to the J upiter Inlet. Books are still available at the Vero Beach B ook Center and ELC Gift S hop for purchase. The Environmental Learning Center is now looking forward to the second nature book reading, which will feature Gone F ishing, a fishing-themed event for the entire family with local author Tamera W ill Wissinger at 6:30 p.m. on April 19. The upcoming event is sure to be a festive evening as the author shares her insight into creating the story of a nine-year-old boys day of fishing. Sibling riv alry, the bond between father and son, the excitement and difficulty of fishing, all add up to a day of adventure that any child would want to experience. Although this book is recommended for ages 6-11, it is enjoyed by all ages. Following a brief introduction, the author will give an interactive presentation on her new book. Children will then be encouraged to participate in fishing related eco-crafts. Books for purchase will be available and guests will have an opportunity to have it signed by the author. Snacks will be provided. Reservations are not r equired. G one Fishing will be available at Vero Beach Book C enter for purchase. F or more information visit www.DiscoverELC.org. With everybody getting his or her yards ready for spring, the one thing everybody wants is color. C olor is one of the main elements that make your yard stand out. One of the most practical ways is through the use of roses. Ro ses are beautiful flowers that symbolize love and friendship. Imagine y ourself entertaining your friends in a lovely alcove surrounded by colorful flowers. Roses are relatively easy to grow and are a great choice because they will often grow where other flowers wont because of F loridas intense summer sun. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in w ell-drained soil in a sunny location. If you plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and eighteen inches deep. P ut a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the root system. The same would apply if you plant your roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your roses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. Now, its finally time to plant your prize. Carefully r emove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in your prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. Now, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. You are now ready to water in your newly planted r ose. Y ou finally have your r oses planted and they are bursting with color, now y ou need to do some periodic maintenance to maintain that beauty. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if y ou prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get rid of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex reigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases, but also controls insect infestation as well. If you are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda? P lain ordinary baking soda added at the rate of three teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure, but will not work we ll if an infection is present. Be sure not to make y our mix too strong as damage to your roses could r esult. W ith all the remedies that we have at our disposal for controlling rose problems, probably the best way is prevention. One way is to avoid watering late in the day so the leaves of the plant do not stay wet all night. Also it is important to have good soil drainage. Ro ses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. Roses should be fed at least once a month. You can use a good quality commercial food or you can use y our own mix, which should consist of one cup of bone meal, one cup cottonseed meal, one-half cup blood meal, one-half cup fishmeal and one-half cup Epsom salts. You can spread this mix around each plant and then water in. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

At Bushwood Golf and C ountry Club in Farfaraway, New York, sides have been taken with regard to the club's lone mime member. Ye s, I said mime. Gerard Par doo is a student of the late, great Marcel Marceau and a long-standing member at Bushwood. The problem seems to be in that the other members at this prestigious club no longer wish to see Mr. Par doo and his antics. I t started a couple years back when he petitioned the club to have a member/mime tournament, said Club President Joe Knowitall. We have traditionally had a member/guest, but he wished to expand it to have mimes playing with every member. That was not acceptable to the rest of our membership. Now, in court papers filed on the first of this month, the club is taking action to expel Mr. Pardoo and re voke his membership. The documents filed cite that he is a distraction when playing, that he never speaks to anyone and that his makeup scares the children of other club members. Mr. Pardoo's response, sent through his attorney, states, I have never been anything but the perfect member. Never have I voiced my opinions out loud. When I play I always hear the female members gossiping and interrupting the quiet others need to hit their shots. I do no such thing. I'm always quiet and r espectful. B ushwood's members offer a slightly different version. H e used to be fun to play with, but now he is trying too hard, said one member who asked to not to be identified. My daughter loved him when she was r eally small. Now, when he plays in the summer and his makeup runs from sweating in the heat, he looks very scary. He made my daughter cry the last time she saw him. She calls him 'the scary clown. Mr. Pardoo's attorney r esponded, A clown? Ser iously? This just goes to show you the lack of understanding these people have for my client. A mime is nothing like a clown. A mime is a true artist, not a birthday party sideshow! How ever, the complaints are coming in from more than just one member. O ur members are complaining that his act is w earing thin, Mr. Knowitall continued. Every time after hitting his tee shot he will not leave the tee box without going through the whole 'I'm stuck in an invisible box' routine. He then makes someone from the group go to his cart, r emove the key and come unlock the invisible door so that he can leave the tee box. It's funny on the first hole, but gets quite old about the third time. O ther complaints about Mr. Pardoo include having to use an imaginary rope to pull himself out of bunkers. M embers say that he always requires one or more players in his group to help pull on the rope to get him out of the trap. The court documents also state that Mr. Pardoo has become a hazard on the course. H e never yells 'Fore!' when he hits a wayward shot, states the club's champion, Dave Shooter. I was hit once by one of his many poor drives and he said nothing. He just stood there holding up four fingers and shrugged his shoulders. H e also holds up play, said another member. If his putt just misses and stops within an inch or two from going in, he will drop to the ground and use some sort of pantomime to get the ball to go in the hole. He pretends to pull on a string that's attached to the ball, or to use an imaginary pool cue to knock the ball in. He thinks it's darn funny that we're waiting to putt and he's going through this garbage. Soon I'm going to toss him in one of the lakes. Mr. Pardoo's written r esponse to these accusations was simple. I'm using mime telepathy. It's like mental telepathy, but better (smiley face). As for throwing me in a lake, I'm not scared, I will just put myself in an airtight bubble and stroll out of the lake. Besides, with all the balls these numbskulls hit into the water, it can't be very deep. So the sides have been drawn in what could be a long and very nasty battle between the members at B ushwood. I'm unsure who I would side with, but I'm glad I don't have to be on the jury should it get that far. Stay tuned as I continue to watch this monumental case unfold.

This year's event will prove to be another exciting evening to celebrate the Gator Nation, featuring scholarship awards to local students and UF Athletic Dir ector, Jeremy Foley as keynote speaker. Mr. Foley has handled virtually every aspect of UF's $96 million athletic program during his administrative career, rising from a ticket intern in 1976, and now, in his 21st year as athletic director. He is widely r ecognized for moving UF A thletics into the upper echelon of college sports, but is also known for being equally committed to student-athlete success in the classroom, said Anthony G uettler, Treasure Coast G ator Club president. "This is going to be an evening to remember," Mr. G uettler said. "Not only is Jer emy Foley a great role model for our scholarship r ecipients, but he will give us an incredible perspective on the condition and future of UF sports. Everyone is excited and honored to welcome Mr. Foley to the Treasure Coast." In addition to Foley's keynote address, the Club will present more than $25,000 in scholarships to 18 students from Indian River and St. Lucie County who will attend UF in Ga inesville or the UF Indian River Research and E ducation Center in Fort Pierce in the fall. The evening will also include a sit-down dinner, one-of-akind silent auction items and vendors selling unique G ator gear. The Treasure Coast Gator T oast, is the signature event of the Treasure Coast G ator Club, which has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to local UF students since 2007. Mr. G uettler said the Club's scholarship program is different from others because it is open to all students from Indian River or St. L ucie County who are pursuing an undergraduate degree from UF, not just graduating high school seniors. "With our program, we want to make sure that great students, who need a little help to complete their education, have the support they need," Mr. Guettler said. "Our scholarships are very helpful for older students pursuing a bachelor's degree, who have more limited options for applying for scholarship support." The Gator Toast is the major fundraising event for the scholarship program. O ther sources of funding are named scholarships which this year include the Arthur and Marian Block Endowment Fund, the Br yan Schirard Memorial F und, the Elizabeth F. Addison Memorial Scholarship, the Clint S. Malone Memor ial Scholarship, the Mark and Robbie Pierce for the Har dee Family Foundation Scholarship, and a scholarship in honor of Ray and B eth Smith given by Trey S mith. The Club also hosts a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. The Treasure Coast Gator Club is a 501(c)3 organization governed by a local board of directors that celebrates UF and provides networking opportunities for local alumni and UF fans alike. The Club's core mission is to raise money to provide scholarships for I ndian River and St. Lucie C ounty students. F or more information, visit www.tcgatorclub.org. T ickets are on sale at www.tcgatorclub.com at a charge of $55 for UF Alumni Association members, $65 for nonmembers or $25 for children 12 and under.
