County property taxes to riseINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Pr operty owners will see their county taxes go up in the next y ear, based on a tentative tax rate set by county commissioners last w eek. The county tax rates are divided into several categories and the during the meeting, county commissioners voted to tentatively increase the general fund tax rate by 5.6 percent and the emergency services district tax rate by 15.5 percent, increases that were higher than the original amount recommended by county staff. Pa rt of the reason for the increase is a request for raises for county administration staff and the Indian River County Sheriff's Office. In the vote for the general fund tax increase, Commissioner Bob S olari dissented, but in three other votes for the emergency services district, the land acquisition and the municipal services taxing unit rates, the commission voted 5-0 to approve them. This would be the first county tax increase in five years although the rate could still decrease after two public hearings and a final vote in September. J oe Baird, county administrator, praised the county departmental staff for their hard work the past few years, doing more with less, and noted that the pay increase wasn't the amount the va r ious employee unions had requested, but it was something. S heriff Deryl Loar pledged to spend his requested budget increase of $1.8 million on 3 percent r aises for deputies and civilian employees and to help pay for an increase in Florida SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 10, No. 44 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, July 26, 2013 W AIT ON THE AS PIRINDon't let coincidences on your computer make you crazy P ageA6 INSIDE VINTAGE SELECTIONS PRESENTS :A SUMMER FLING IN ROMANIAŽW ine Dinner Monday,July 29th at 6pm772-664-4065www.RedRoosterCafe.com068423 Enjoying July and the month of the oldest Open Opera now available at Majestic ENTERTAINMENTB1 GOLF B6 OPERA THE OPEN IN DEXBusinessA7 ClassifiedB6 Crossword B3 DiningB2 Horoscopes B2 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6Open house taking place Aug. 1"I nterior Design Open H ouse" will take place Aug. 1, 6:30 p.m., Room V-125, Kight C enter for Emerging Technologies, 3209 Virginia Av enue on the IRSC Main C ampus, Fort Pierce.

K eeping the rate the same should allow most people to pay the same amount, or a little bit less, for their taxes in the new y ear because property values have gone down, city staff said.

He worked full time in the ER from 1993 2009, and started working at Indian River Medical Center Walk-In Care Sebastian in 2011. The re is a sister clinic located Pointe West named Indian River Medical Center Walk-In Care Pointe West. Both clinics are operated by IRMC. Dr. Butler is now the Medical Director for IRMC Walk-In Care clinics, which has been open for more than three years. Because were open longer hours than a regular medical office, we have more staff to cover our hours,Ž said Dr. Butler. Each clinic has its own office manager. At any given time, we will have a physician present (with occasional double coverage o n busy days during season), a nurse or medical assistant, a certified x-ray tech who also assists with patient care and one or two receptionists/ front offic e staff.Ž Dr. Butler went to medical school and did his post-graduate training in London, Canada, which is near where he grew up. He fin ished a residency in Family Practice and became Board Certified in both Canada and the United States. During his residency, he became interested in Emergency Medicine, and before leaving Canada was on staff as an Emergency Physic ian at University Hospital in London, and was a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Western Ontario. After moving to Florida, he received his Board Certification in Emergency Medicine. I found that I really liked the variety and excitement of the ER and so spent quite a while doing that. I did a brief stint in private practice but then found a perfect fit here doing Walk-In. I like the variety of problems and enjoy having some time to actually talk to my patients.Ž The clinic can handle minor emergencies including, but not limited to, broken bones and lacerations and non-life-threatening al lergic reactions. However, anything that is a true emergency, such as chest pain, stroke symptoms or significant shortness of breath, is sent to the Emergency Room.

Re tirement Services cost. The county rates set for property taxes vary by area, unincorporated and municipal, based on the services brought to the area by the county. The following examples of property taxes are created using a home with a total taxable value of $150,000 and are estimated by rounding the rates to two decimal places. If the home is located in I ndian River Shores, the county taxes would be $3.64 per $1,000 of taxable v alue and a homeowner would receive a bill of about $546. This year, the same homeowner paid about $520. In the municipalities of F ellsmere, Orchid, Sebastian and Vero Beach, the county taxes come to $5.62 per $1,000 in taxable value. The homeowner's tax bill for next year would be approximately $1,004, compared to $778 last y ear. In the unincorporated county, the taxes will come to $6.69 per $1,000 in taxable value meaning about $1,004 in tax bills for the homeowner, where this past year the total was $990.

The information comes from the first of Harbor Br anch's Land/Ocean Biogeochemical Observatory units placed in the lagoon to measure important envir onmental parameters including temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, water color, chlorophyll that is indicative of algae in the water column, and nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates. The website, http://fauhboi.loboviz.com/ is accessible 24 hours a day. FA U Harbor Branch has a long history of conducting r esearch and monitoring in the lagoon, which is one of the most biodiverse estuaries in North America. Its r esearch includes relating seagrass status with water quality; determining the causes of macroalgae and harmful algal blooms; studying marine mammal health; and population and mercury in the food web and ecosystem change. The L OBO units, and the accompanying website with high quality, freely accessible, r eal-time data, will transform these long-standing r esearch efforts while providing this information to all who wish to see or use it. This real-time data will allow us to determine critical baselines for the lagoon's environment and its relationships to its plants and animals," said Dennis H anisak, Ph.D., who leads FA U Harbor Branch's LOBO efforts. "We also will be able to study significant events, such as water discharges, algal blooms, and storm events and how these events r elate to ecosystem changes in the lagoon, as they happen. This LOBO technology will provide researchers, colleagues, governmental agencies, students of all levels, and the general public unprecedented IRL environmental data, real-time." The LOBO units were developed by leading chemical oceanographers and estuarine researchers, have been tested, proven and improved over time, as well as have a national and international presence in Canada, California, Oregon, D elaware, Maine and the w est coast of Florida. FAU H arbor Branch's LOBO units will integrate into the N ational Ocean Observatory D ata System, allowing comparative studies both within the state and on a national scale. A new public outreach video also was released to educate the community on the Indian River Lagoon and the research that is conducted by FAU Harbor Branch scientists in the lagoon www.youtube.com/watch?v =GSxeDCtsOZc&feature=yo utu.be.

A reading of the parked car was between 119 degrees and 124 degrees. The small brown Chihuahua/Dachshund mix in the car was panting heavily when authorities arrived on the scene and didn't bark when an officer put a hand inside a partially open window, the report said. The dog's external temperature was 106 degrees, approximately four degrees above the highest normal body temperature range.

TREASURE COAST The American Red Cross launched the Team Red Cr oss App, which allows people to sign up to help, get an overview on basic tasks and receive notifications about Red Cross disaster volunteer opportunities in their community. When people see an emergency happening in their community, they often want to help but may not know how," said Sarah Ruwe, r egional volunteer management executive director. The Team Red Cross App provides an easy and quick way for people to sign up to help the Red Cross and support their community." Once users download the app, they create an account. Then they learn about different jobs, such as working in a warehouse, handing out supplies or assisting with feeding. When the Red Cross has a need for volunteers, the Team Red Cross App will notify users based on their location. Potential volunteers can instantly accept or decline the volunteer opportunity. The Red Cross is encouraging the public to download the app before a disaster strikes in your community so volunteers can help immediately. The app is free and designed for iPhone and Android smart phones and tablets. Additional features include: A quick orientation right on the mobile device. Ability for people to share notifications for volunteers with their social network. Earn digital "badges" by completing a job test, accepting a job, sharing the app, recruiting volunteers, etc. The "badges" can then be shared with their social network. Allows people to donate money to the Red Cross and sign up to donate blood. Offers emergency r esponse information that people can share with their friends at the touch of a button. The Team Red Cross App is the seventh in a series of highly successful Red Cross apps, which are now on more than 3 million mobile devices across the country. A r ecent Red Cross survey shows that apps are now tied with social media as the fourth most popular way to get information during emergenciesbehind TV, r adio and online news sites. N early one-fifth of Americans say they've received some kind of emergency information from an app they've downloaded, making the Red Cross apps an important way for the public to get ready for disasters. The Team Red Cross App can be found in the Apple A pp Store and the Google P lay Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to r edcross.org/mobileapps. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a nonprofit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Editor's note: This is a list of arrests,not convictions, and all arrestees are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law. TREASURE COAST The Florida Department of Health is warning the public about the health r isks associated with illicit synthetic substances. Often used to achieve the same high typically produced by drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, and amphetamines, illicit synthetic substances are life-threatening and addictive. "I llicit synthetic drugs are dangerous to Florida's children, adults and families," said Dr. John Armstrong, state surgeon general and secretary of health. "These drugs destroy lives, and are threats to public health and safety." The number of people using illicit synthetic drugs is growing in Florida. The American Association of P oison Control Centers r eported that in 2012 Florida poison control centers r eceived 5,202 calls involving exposures to illicit synthetic substances, a considerable spike compared to 2,906 calls in 2010. S ynthetic marijuana, often known as "K2" or "S pice," is one of the substances whose popularity is "alarmingly high," as noted by the Office of Na tional Drug Control Policy. A ccording to the 2011 M onitoring the Future survey of drug-use trends among youth, 11.4 percent of 12th graders used K2 or S pice in the past year, r anking it the second most common illicit drug used by that age group. Often sold as incense and falsely marketed as "natural," labels of Spice claim the product contains a psycho-active material taken from plants. Chemical analyses actually reveal that the active ingredients are instead synthetic cannabinoid compounds. B ecause these chemicals are considered to have high potential for abuse and no medical benefit, the Drug Enforcement A dministration designated its five active chemicals as Schedule I controlled substances, making them illegal to sell, buy, or process. Anyone experiencing an adverse reaction to an illicit synthetic substance should contact their local poison center at (800) 2221222.

Protesters won't gain any respectI drove around and saw people protesting the Zimmerman verdict. I wonder how many of them actually know all of the details. Actually, I'm guessing there's only two who do. And one's dead and one's life will never be the same. J ustified or not, two lives have been lost. I see young men jumping around on street corners in the middle of summer, with hoodies on, sweating to death trying to make a point about a case I'm willing to bet they know nothing about. One young man was screaming obscenities to passersby, while grabbing his crotch, and holding a sign that read "Justice and Peace for Travon." (Yes, Trayvon was spelled incorrectly. I just have to ask myself just how much peace this young man wanted. What kind of justice does he want? Did he follow the trial? Did he do his own r esearch? Or was he being a follower and using this forum as a place to act the fool? Now, before everyone jumps on my case, I'm from the hood.' I'm not new to the racism that exists; however, I know that we have to present ourselves in a different light to be seen in a different light. J umping around with your pants around your thighs, grabbing your crotch and cussing out white drivers will never gain you any respect.W elfare recipients live high on the hog'Fr om the comments I get from a lot of people, they are sick of the people in this city on welfare, living other people's money and living high on the hog. People on welfare are able to purchase the same things the common working person is able to purchase. So here's the reasons they have kids, receive a payment for each one, get into sec 8 housing, and get into all the government subsidized programs they can so they won't have to work. Wow, no wonder they wanted Obama in as president. They don't worry about not getting 40 hours a week for work. They spend more time figuring out how to get stuff for free. By the way, Obamacare,' as it's called, is not a government paid program that money comes from the tax payers, and for the liberal democrats who voted for it before a new congress came to power, they did that just to look good for the people who have the only inclination to live off the government welfare system. Quit having kids! In today's economy, seeing a mother with two or three kids especially in Fort Pierce, there's no way she's got any career going to afford those kids. Sorry people, but welfare is not a career opportunity. H opefully someday welfare will be eliminated and these people will quit breeding just for that government welfare check. To the welfare ranter'I sincerely don't understand how such ignorance still exists. The writer, who constantly complains about people on welfare, (I've dubbed him the welfare ranter'), has way too much time on his or her hands. I know it's only one person writing those rants because the level of ignorance is the same throughout all of them. If you have such a problem with the residents of Fort Pierce, MOVE! Quit whining about welfare and people in government housing. It is what it is. There's always been those less-fortunate, those who still work hard and can't get ahead, those who don't try to better themselves and those who constantly complain about all of them. You are the cancer that needs eradicating. Move to the suburbs, learn how to write effectively, become an activist, but please, shut your stupid mouth up about the city of Fort Pierce and its residents. Y ou get on my last nerve. A view on the Zimmerman caseF or the past one and a half years, the nation has watched and listened about the death of Trayvon Martin. We were barraged with photos released by the media of a smiling 12-year old child wearing a football jersey. We were told that Trayvon was on his way home from a store after purchasing a tea and Skittles, when he was confronted and ultimately shot and killed by an overzealous George Zimmerman, a wannabe policeman. The media sold the story that Trayvon was completely innocent and that Zimmerman was a killer. Shortly after the shooting, the president even weighed in saying if he had a son, he would look like Tr ayvon. After his comments, not only was the case portrayed as a murder involving a child, but a black child, inserting race into the equation. The FBI investigated to see if race was an issue and concluded after an extensive r eview, that no racism existed. The Sanford Police Department further concluded that the shooting was justified and that no charges would be filed. Not satisfied, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and other black activists used the shooting to promote hate and to infuriate the black populace. Bowing to pressure, the local decision not to prosecute was overridden, and the State Attorney was brought in to file charges. After the charge of Second Degree Murder was filed, the state attorneys took to the airwave's to vilify and convict Zimmerman before the case ever went to trial. Du r ing the trial the true facts of the case were revealed. We learned that Trayvon had grown considerably and was not the portrayed smiling 12year old. We learned that the neighborhood where the shooting occurred was being victimized by young black males committing burglary. We learned that Zimmerman, a resident and community watch volunteer, observed a young black man in the neighborhood, who he did recognize. He called the police. When he lost sight of the young man because he ran, he got out of his car to get the number off a nearby condo to tell police the location where he lost sight of the fleeing y oung man. While returning to his vehicle, he was confronted and assaulted by the awaiting young man. While being pinned on the ground and having his head bashed against the sidewalk, Zimmerman feared for his life and used his licensed firearm in self-defense. The jury after hearing the facts returned a not guilty verdict. Not satisfied with the verdict, Sharpton, Jackson and now Attorney General Holder, took to the airwaves, to stir hate and call for protests. As a result of their hate speech, across the nation several innocent people have been injured and thousands of dollars in property damage has occurred. It is sad when anybody, regardless of age or race, loses their life. Even worse is when people use a death to promote their own agenda and cause a racial divide in our great country. The constant attempt of some to divide us into groups of black or white should be replace with one, where we all belong to one group, with our colors being r ed, white and blue. No end in sight to social servicesPr etty much lost in the immigration debate is the cost to those of us already living here. We've heard about increased competition for already scarce jobs. But in addition, America is paying the price in increased so-called r edistributive programs. The number of people on food stamps has doubled under President Obama. All of the other costly, government provided social services are increasing rapidly. There is no end in sight.Stop the regulationsO ur oppressive national government is over-regulating us. We are tired of being told how much salt we can put on our food, what kind of windows we can but for our houses, what types of guns we can own, what kinds of prayers we can say, and where we can say them, what type of energy we can use, what type of doctor we can see, and when, and what we are permitted to do to elect political candidates of our choice. This is the tyranny our Founding Fathers fought against. 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. Sometimes when computers malfunction, the timing can be coincidental causing y ou to chase your tail around trying to fix it. M ost of the time when y our computer starts acting squirrelly, its good practice to consider the last thing that happened r ight before the problem popped up and then try to undo whatever it is that was changed. B ut then again, sometimes undoing the last thing that happened can be a red herring, causing yo u to spin your wheels for hours. Take this email I r eceived from George for instance: "Hi Sean. Read y our articles every week and look forward to them. I t's the first article I look for in Hometown News. "Sean, I was having a problem with my M icrosoft mouse, so my son gave me an optical mouse to install. I just disconnected the old one and plugged in the optical mouse and turned the computer on. It began loading files for it and now, every time I turn on the computer, I have to hit F1 to continue loading windows. "Then I'm told that Windows has updated my computer clock and asks me to check it. It is always wrong and I have to correct the month, year and time. Do you have any ideas what is causing this because it never has done this before? I'm sure it had to do with adding the new mouse (italics added by me). I recall reading one of y our articles where you said most computer problems were due to software added to the computer. Any corrections I can make? Thank you in advance and please don't stop writing your articles because you certainly have made a big difference to so many of us." George from Port St. Lucie. On the surface, it would appear George is on the r ight track, because he knows that when he added the new hardware (the mouse) and often when new hardware is installed problems can occur. But, after reading his email and considering what was going on, I realized that George was about to start "chasing rabbits." This is how I replied to George: "Hi. Thanks for reading! What's happening on your system likely has nothing to do with the new mouse, just coincidence that it started happening at the same time you added a new piece of hardware. Y our machine is probably older than three years, y es? On your motherboard is a small battery, such as that found in a watch. When that battery runs down, you will have to hit F1 every time you boot and reset the clock. With the battery dead it loses track of time when it powers down and all BIOS settings have to be reset on boot up. Un-plug the system, open the 'can' and look for a watch-like battery (probably about the size of a quarter) and r eplace it. That ought to correct the issue. Hope that helps and thanks again for reading." Sean The next day I opened my email and found the following e-mail from George: "Hello Sean. Thank you so much for the info on the dead battery. I never thought of that and ye s, my machine is over seven years old and I have never opened the 'can,' but the way you explained it, I think I can do that. I will let you know how I make out. Again thank you so much for your help." And the day after that: "Hello Sean. Just a follow up on your advice regarding replacing the computer's battery.

W eston-based Florida C ommunity Bank is making the transition from a holding company for the assets of failed banks to one of the state's largest banking operations. FCB recently completed its first negotiated acquisition, buying Great Florida B ank of Coral Gables. Based on Great Florida's most r ecent report of outstanding shares of common stock, the deal is valued at about $42.5 million with FCB paying $2.34 for each share. FCB, a subsidiary of Bond St r eet Holdings, was formed in 2009 and used to maintain the assets of failed banks in cooperation with the Federal Deposit I nsurance Corp. Great F lorida also was in shaky condition, but FCB already was involved in turning it around, FCB President Kent Ellert said in a telephone interview. "Based on the pricing, we feel OK about the assets of Great Florida." The combined operations put FCB as the fourth largest bank based in Florida with assets of $4.4 billion and 67 offices along both Florida coasts. Mr. Ellert doesn't expect any of the offices will close. "V ery little overlapped between our two operations," he said. FCB is now poised to become a statewide bank, something Florida hasn't had with a state-based bank in several years. It will need to move into the Jacksonville, Panhandle, Tallahassee and Tampa Bay markets to do it. In the news release announcing the deal, Mr. Ellert said, "The transaction with Great Florida Bank is truly a game changer' for our Company as we have been eager to expand our presence in Miami, Florida's largest metro market. We are a Florida-based, F lorida-focused company and the merger with Great F lorida Bank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions. "C onsistent with our previously completed eight successful acquisitions, this merger will significantly enhance our Florida footprint and will provide a foundation for us to augment our commercial lending team to further generate organic growth," he said. M. Mehdi Ghomeshi, Pr esident of Great Florida B ank, said in the news re lease, "This merger is a win for our stockholders, customers and banking franchise. This business combination significantly enhances our combined abilities to be one of the financially strongest and most competitive community banking organizations in Florida. We are confident that this merger is a highly attractive strategic alignment for all of our constituents." The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2013, subject to customary conditions, including receipt of regulatory approvals and the approval of Great Florida stockholders."We are a Florida-based, Florida focused company and the merger with Great Florida Bank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions."K ent Ellert FC B President www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, July 26, 2013 Sebastian River Area A7 8466 US HWY 1 € Wabasso, FL 32970(772)584-6337liquidaddiction3@yahoo.com069146 Lobster Season Starts Aug. 6th!!WE TEACH ALL LEVELS OF CER TIFICA TION € Full Air Fill Station € Full Equipment Service € Nitrox Fills € VIP &Hydro € Guided Lobster Dives € Guided Night Dives € Monthly Dive Trips € Surf Lessons € Charter Boat € Free Diving 069060 BusinessChamber to recognize businesses INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The deadline is fastapproaching for local businesses to submit their nominations for the Indian River Chamber's 2013 Industry A ppreciation Awards program.

Lucie, Indian River and O keechobee counties re ceived a $40,000 grant from the Indian River Community F oundation to fund "Mentoring for Success in Early Childhood," a new program to improve kindergarten readiness for at-risk children in I ndian River County. The program is a collaborative pilot project between Big Br others Big Sister and the Early Learning Coalition of I ndian River, Martin and O keechobee Counties in which 50 at-risk pre-kindergarten students will be assigned a mentor three times a week to help develop pre-literacy skills. The mentors, supplied by AmeriCorps staff from Big Br others Big Sisters, will also focus on engaging the families of students in literacy activities to support continued learning in the home environment. The program is the first and only local mentoring program working with pre-kindergarten students and is considered an important part of helping Indian River County achieve its M oonshot Moment of having 90 percent of third grade students reading on grade level by 2018. AmeriCorps staff and members are excited for this new opportunity to partner with the Early Learning Coalition to target pre-k students," said Jenna Stinnett, Americorps program director. AmeriCorps members have seen firsthand, the difference strong pre-literacy skills can make in a student entering K indergarten. These experienced members are excited to give students a solid foundation to build upon when they enter school. We are very thankful and honored to re ceive the Indian River Community Foundation's generous gift." The $40,000 grant was awarded by the Indian River C ommunity Foundation through a competitive grants program designed to address time-sensitive community needs in the focus areas of literacy, homelessness and mental health/substance abuse. Kerry Bartlett, Executive Director of the Indian River Community Foundation, said her Board of Directors appreciated the opportunity to help launch Indian River County's first mentoring program for pre-kindergarten students. "W e' ve been working for ov er a year in cooperation with other individuals, local businesses and nonprofits to support Indian River County's M oonshot Moment literacy goals," Ms. Bartlett said. "But, this is the first time we've had the opportunity to help launch a program that will have such a lasting impact on the future success of children in our community." B ig Brothers Big Sisters of St L ucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties is a one-toone mentoring organization that served 1,692 children in 2012 through a variety of mentoring programs.

These grants mark the fifth y ear the Community Foundation has operated a competitive grant program driven by contributions from local philanthropists interested in addressing timesensitive community needs. The Community Foundation uses a Board-appointed committee of local experts and community leaders to r eview the proposals and recommend to the board how grants should be awarded. Ms. Bartlett said the Community Foundation Board of Di r ectors makes it a priority to connect interested donors with organizations that have measurable plans for impacting Indian River C ounty. Community Foundation representatives work closely with each organization throughout the year to ensure they are tracking their r esults. "E very donor to the Unrestricted Fund receives a midy ear and a final report on the progress of the grant awards," Ms. Bartlett said. This is one of the reasons the fund has grown every y ear. With each report we gain donor confidence in our ability to select creative programs that produce measurable results."

However, building and new construction will bring in more taxable properties, r esulting in a $4 million net gain, Mr. Minner said. C ouncilmembers have said they are pleased to be able to keep the old tax r ate and still have enough funds to keep up the services and quality of life residents expect in Sebastian. C ouncilman Jim Hill said the credit for that is on the shoulders of city staff leadership, not just the city council. The council will vote on a final tax rate and approve a budget in September. The tax rate approved by the council at that time may be lower, but it may not exceed the $3.72 per $1,000 amount, unless the council votes to resend all the residents notices of a change in the mail, which would be quite costly to the city. W ith the property tax r ate at $3.72 per $1,000 in assessed taxable value, a property owner in Sebastian with a house valued at $150,000 after exemptions could expect to pay $558 to the city in property taxes. Ed H erlihy, a member of the budget review committee, said the committee recommends keeping the rate the same going into the 2013-14 year and also recommends that the city not use any of the general fund reserves, but to keep it for a "rainy day."

The Majestic Theatre in Ve ro B each is still offering select showings of the operas filmed live at The M etropolitan Opera in New Yo rk this summer, including performances of "Turandot" in July and "The Barber of S eville" in August. "T urandot," an Italian opera set in China, follows the story of a prince in love with a princess who wants nothing to do with him. It contains the famous tenor aria, "Nessun Dorma." Sh o wings are July 27 and J uly 31 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $12.50 each. This performance of "T urandot" features Marcello Giordani, an opera star that has been to Vero Beach several times for live performances and will return again this fall, said Joan Ortega-Cowan, president of Ve ro B each Opera. The opera organization partnered with the theater several years ago to bring the live opera performances to Vero Beach and the r esponse has been tremendous, Mrs. Ortega-Cowan said. "O pera encompasses all of the arts, the orchestra, the singers, the costumes and the sets, and it's been around for several hundred y ears," she said. The age of the art form and the fact that Americans are rarely exposed to it, mean that many people do not understand its appeal, Mrs. Ortega-Cowan said. "P eople tend to think it's for older, stuffy, intellectuals, but when operas started they were for the average person in Italy, they were accessible to all people," she said. Americans just haven't had the same access to opera as Europeans." S ubtitles are available for people who want to understand every word of an opera that isn't in their native language, but the music alone can tell the story, whether a comedy, r omance, drama or something else. Du r ing the summer, the shows are part of The Met: Live in HD Encore series, meaning they are DVD r ecordings of live shows, but during the fall, winter and spring months, the shows are actually simulcast live into the theatre. This fall, the live shows will begin again, and season subscriptions will again be available.T ry Majestic' operas to beat the heat By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.comMarcello Giordani is one of the major stars of The Metropolitan Opera in New York and his performances can be seen in V ero Beach via The MET Live in HD series at The Majestic Theatre in Vero Beach.

F riday, July 26, 2013 B6 Sebastian River AreaHometown News 069057V ivian Marie O'Connor, 88, died after a long illness on Friday, June 28, 2013. She was born November 17, 1924 in Brooklyn, New York. V ivian was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 50 years, John (Jack) O'Connor. She is survived by her four daughters; Nancy Brown of Macungie, PA, Barbara Satterlee of Elmira, NY, Judy Goldblum of Sebastian, FL, and Linda Hughes of Powder Springs, GA. She was a loving grandmother to 12 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. Also surviving is her sister Jeanne of Albuquerque, NM and a niece and two nephews. V ivian and her husband spent the first part of their lives on Long Island, NY, then moving to PA. After retiring, they relocated to Barefoot Bay, FLwhere they lived for almost 30 years. The family wishes to thank Glenbrooke at Palm Bay, which was her home for the last 2 1/2 years and Vitas Hospice for the devoted and loving care they provided for mom.VIVIAN O'CONNORNovember 17, 1924 June 28, 2013 Being a true "sports nut," I love the month of July. B aseball is in full swing and pennant races are heating up. Football's training camps are set to open. What I admit to enjoying the most is waking up early, flipping on the television and watching tennis at Wimbledon and then a week or so later, doing the same to tune in golf. As I write this from the comfort of my recliner, The O pen Championship is being played. Just as I did a couple weeks back, I will wake early this weekend, sit down with my tea and crumpets and enjoy golf competition being played on a venue unlike any I've played here in the states. O kay, I don't really care for hot tea and I confess to never having had a "crumpet," but I think coffee and an English muffin will do. The oldest major in golf happens to also be the only one not played on this side of the "pond." That's Britspeak for the Atlantic O cean. I'm trying to get in character and feel the mood. I even have my umbrella next to my r ecliner. With the weather w e've been having it feels like Scotland here, but warmer. The Open treats us to a totally different game from what we are used to playing or watching. Golf here is played mainly through the air. We have lots of water hazards, not too much wind and soft, over-watered fairways and greens. Open courses are golf courses in the truest sense. Bunkers are actually penal. In stark contrast to here, pros want no part of any bunker in this w eek's event. There are several reasons why I love The Open. It is not just that it is the oldest of the majors. I think it's because it is played on courses that are as courses we re meant to be. Golf originated with the bored and solitary shepherds of the Dark Ages. It was a quiet way for them to pass the time without going crazy from boredom while endlessly herding their flocks around the meadow. S heep are gentle, lovable creatures, but hardly stimulating company. So, shepherds would pick up a lump of wood and a fairly r ound stone and whack it about while one sheep followed another around the fields from sun-up to sunset. They didn't keep score or argue over who had the better stick or rock. It was simply something to pass the time. The terrain over which shepherds watched their flocks was a rolling, natural meadow. The closer to the sea, the more rolling it became and the more entrenched with long grass, heather and sharp, thorny gorse. It was there that the game became more fun and skill-driven. Who wants to knock a rock around on an empty, flat piece of yard anyway? On those meadows, golf evolved. Of course, there are organic things that just seemed to happen. Mother N ature was the only course architect back then. She allowed the wind and rain to shape the land. The animals hid from the frigid air and spray from the sea in small pits. Shepherds r ightfully feared hitting their rock into one of these pits. I'm guessing the sheep we re not very fond of those moments either. Over time, some shepherds became quite good at this game and in 1860 the very first Open Championship was played. By then, golf had reached the point where it was a proper game, with proper rules and the best player usually won. A tradition was born and it has grown more glorious with each passing year. With the exception of bombs dropping during world wars, nothing has stopped this event from taking place each summer. The Open is a romantic celebration of the way our game is meant to be played. It encourages risk and r ewards those fortunate enough with a wee bit of luck. Even those who play safe may suffer from an unfortunate bounce here and there. It closely emulates real life with all the crazy bounces, good and bad luck, and the occasional reward for skill and bravado. B est of all, the winner's trophy, the Claret Jug, is lent to the champion for the next year. His name is inscribed on its base and he gets to trot around the globe showing it off. It's the trophy of the "Champion of the Y ear," winner of The Open, golf's oldest, and perhaps, greatest event. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm actually craving a crumpet.

County property taxes to riseINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Pr operty owners will see their county taxes go up in the next y ear, based on a tentative tax rate set by county commissioners last w eek. The county tax rates are divided into several categories and the during the meeting, county commissioners voted to tentatively increase the general fund tax rate by 5.6 percent and the emergency services district tax rate by 15.5 percent, increases that were higher than the original amount recommended by county staff. Pa rt of the reason for the increase is a request for raises for county administration staff and the Indian River County Sheriffs Office. In the vote for the general fund tax increase, Commissioner Bob S olari dissented, but in three other votes for the emergency services district, the land acquisition and the municipal services taxing unit rates, the commission voted 5-0 to approve them. This would be the first county tax increase in five years although the rate could still decrease after two public hearings and a final vote in September. J oe Baird, county administrator, praised the county departmental staff for their hard work the past few years, doing more with less, and noted that the pay increase wasnt the amount the var ious employee unions had requested, but it was something. S heriff Deryl Loar pledged to spend his requested budget increase of $1.8 million on 3 percent r aises for deputies and civilian employees and to help pay for an increase in Florida SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 10, No. 44 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, July 26, 2013 W AIT ON THE AS PIRINDont let coincidences on your computer make you crazy P ageA6 INSIDE VINTAGE SELECTIONS PRESENTS:A SUMMER FLING IN ROMANIAW ine Dinner Monday,July 29th at 6pm772-664-4065www.RedRoosterCafe.com068423 Enjoying July and the month of the oldest Open Opera now available at Majestic ENTERTAINMENTB1 GOLF B6 OPERA THE OPEN INDEXBusinessA7 ClassifiedB6 Crossword B3 DiningB2 Horoscopes B2 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6Open house taking place Aug. 1I nterior Design Open H ouse will take place Aug. 1, 6:30 p.m., Room V-125, Kight C enter for Emerging Technologies, 3209 Virginia Av enue on the IRSC Main C ampus, Fort Pierce.

The Sebastian City C ouncil voted earlier this month to set the maximum ad valorem tax rate for the 2013-14 year at the same rate as the current y ear, which is approximately $3.72 per $1,000 of assessed taxable value. K eeping the rate the same should allow most people to pay the same amount, or a little bit less, for their taxes in the new y ear because property values have gone down, city staff said.

Ev en with a window partially open, temperatures inside a car can climb to 120 degrees within minutes, even on a mild Florida day with an outside temperature of 78 degrees. Especially during Florida summers, leaving anyone inside a car, two-legged or fourlegged, isnt a good idea, said Humane Society of Ve ro Beach and Indian River County staff.

Butlers first shift in the emergency room at Indian River Memorial Hospital, what is now Indian River Medical Center, was in December 1992. He worked full time in the ER from 1993 2009, and started working at Indian River Medical Center Walk-In Care Sebastian in 2011. The re is a sister clinic located Pointe West named Indian River Medical Center Walk-In Care Pointe West. Both clinics are operated by IRMC. Dr. Butler is now the Medical Director for IRMC Walk-In Care clinics, which has been open for more than three years. Because were open longer hours than a regular medical office, we have more staff to cover our hours, said Dr. Butler. Each clinic has its own office manager. At any given time, we will have a physician present (with occasional double coverage on busy days during season), a nurse or medical assistant, a certified x-ray tech who also assists with patient care and one or two receptionists/ front office staff. Dr. Butler went to medical school and did his post-graduate training in London, Canada, which is near where he grew up. He finished a residency in Family Practice and became Board Certified in both Canada and the United States. During his residency, he became interested in Emergency Medicine, and before leaving Canada was on staff as an Emergency Physician at University Hospital in London, and was a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Western Ontario. After moving to Florida, he received his Board Certification in Emergency Medicine. I found that I really liked the variety and excitement of the ER and so spent quite a while doing that. I did a brief stint in private practice but then found a perfect fit here doing Walk-In. I like the variety of problems and enjoy having some time to actually talk to my patients. The clinic can handle minor emergencies including, but not limited to, broken bones and lacerations and non-life-threatening allergic reactions. However, anything that is a true emergency, such as chest pain, stroke symptoms or significant shortness of breath, is sent to the Emergency Room. They also have access to IRMC hospital records and any office records from the numerous physicians connected with IRMA. Our goal is to offer great care in a timely fashion. We accept a huge number of insurance plans and even offer discounted prices to those without insurance. Lastly, as part of Indian River Medical Center, we have access to all of their resources and also adhere to the same stringent standards that hospitals must conform to. Other physicians include: James Dozier, MD, Sung Taylor, DO, Joseph DeLuca, MD, Melvyn Lobo, MD and Charles Mackett, MD. The Sebastian Clinic is located at 801 Wellness Way in Sebastian. We are in the medical office building right on U.S. 1, immediately north of Walmart. Our Pointe W est Clinic is located at 1960 Point West Drive in Vero. It is in the medical office building on the south side of State Road 60, between 74th and 82nd Avenues. Both clinics are open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. (8 a.m. 6 p.m. during summer months of July-September) Monday through Friday, and 9 a. m. 5 p.m. on Saturdays. They are closed Sundays.

Re tirement Services cost. The county rates set for property taxes vary by area, unincorporated and municipal, based on the services brought to the area by the county. The following examples of property taxes are created using a home with a total taxable value of $150,000 and are estimated by rounding the rates to two decimal places. If the home is located in I ndian River Shores, the county taxes would be $3.64 per $1,000 of taxable v alue and a homeowner would receive a bill of about $546. This year, the same homeowner paid about $520. In the municipalities of F ellsmere, Orchid, Sebastian and Vero Beach, the county taxes come to $5.62 per $1,000 in taxable value. The homeowners tax bill for next year would be approximately $1,004, compared to $778 last y ear. In the unincorporated county, the taxes will come to $6.69 per $1,000 in taxable value meaning about $1,004 in tax bills for the homeowner, where this past year the total was $990.

The information comes from the first of Harbor Br anchs Land/Ocean Biogeochemical Observatory units placed in the lagoon to measure important envir onmental parameters including temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, water color, chlorophyll that is indicative of algae in the water column, and nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates. The website, http://fauhboi.loboviz.com/ is accessible 24 hours a day. FA U Harbor Branch has a long history of conducting r esearch and monitoring in the lagoon, which is one of the most biodiverse estuaries in North America. Its r esearch includes relating seagrass status with water quality; determining the causes of macroalgae and harmful algal blooms; studying marine mammal health; and population and mercury in the food web and ecosystem change. The L OBO units, and the accompanying website with high quality, freely accessible, r eal-time data, will transform these long-standing r esearch efforts while providing this information to all who wish to see or use it. This real-time data will allow us to determine critical baselines for the lagoons environment and its relationships to its plants and animals, said Dennis H anisak, Ph.D., who leads FA U Harbor Branchs LOBO efforts. We also will be able to study significant events, such as water discharges, algal blooms, and storm events and how these events r elate to ecosystem changes in the lagoon, as they happen. This LOBO technology will provide researchers, colleagues, governmental agencies, students of all levels, and the general public unprecedented IRL environmental data, real-time. The LOBO units were developed by leading chemical oceanographers and estuarine researchers, have been tested, proven and improved over time, as well as have a national and international presence in Canada, California, Oregon, D elaware, Maine and the w est coast of Florida. FAU H arbor Branchs LOBO units will integrate into the N ational Ocean Observatory D ata System, allowing comparative studies both within the state and on a national scale. A new public outreach video also was released to educate the community on the Indian River Lagoon and the research that is conducted by FAU Harbor Branch scientists in the lagoon www.youtube.com/watch?v =GSxeDCtsOZc&feature=yo utu.be.

A reading of the parked car was between 119 degrees and 124 degrees. The small brown Chihuahua/Dachshund mix in the car was panting heavily when authorities arrived on the scene and didnt bark when an officer put a hand inside a partially open window, the report said. The dogs external temperature was 106 degrees, approximately four degrees above the highest normal body temperature range. The Humane Society of Ve ro Beach and Indian River County has a car thermometer that can be placed on the car window to measure the temperature, said J anet Winikoff, education director for the animal shelter.

TREASURE COAST The American Red Cross launched the Team Red Cross App, which allows people to sign up to help, get an overview on basic tasks and receive notifications about Red Cross disaster volunteer opportunities in their community. When people see an emergency happening in their community, they often want to help but may not know how, said Sarah Ruwe, r egional volunteer management executive director. The Team Red Cross App provides an easy and quick way for people to sign up to help the Red Cross and support their community. Once users download the app, they create an account. Then they learn about different jobs, such as working in a warehouse, handing out supplies or assisting with feeding. When the Red Cross has a need for volunteers, the Team Red Cross App will notify users based on their location. Potential volunteers can instantly accept or decline the volunteer opportunity. The Red Cross is encouraging the public to download the app before a disaster strikes in your community so volunteers can help immediately. The app is free and designed for iPhone and Android smart phones and tablets. Additional features include: A quick orientation right on the mobile device. Ability for people to share notifications for volunteers with their social network. Earn digital badges by completing a job test, accepting a job, sharing the app, recruiting volunteers, etc. The badges can then be shared with their social network. Allows people to donate money to the Red Cross and sign up to donate blood. Offers emergency r esponse information that people can share with their friends at the touch of a button. The Team Red Cross App is the seventh in a series of highly successful Red Cross apps, which are now on more than 3 million mobile devices across the country. A r ecent Red Cross survey shows that apps are now tied with social media as the fourth most popular way to get information during emergenciesbehind TV, r adio and online news sites. N early one-fifth of Americans say theyve received some kind of emergency information from an app theyve downloaded, making the Red Cross apps an important way for the public to get ready for disasters. The Team Red Cross App can be found in the Apple A pp Store and the Google P lay Store by searching for American Red Cross or by going to r edcross.org/mobileapps. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a nonprofit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Editors note: This is a list of arrests,not convictions, and all arrestees are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law. TREASURE COAST The Florida Department of Health is warning the public about the health r isks associated with illicit synthetic substances. Often used to achieve the same high typically produced by drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine, and amphetamines, illicit synthetic substances are life-threatening and addictive. I llicit synthetic drugs are dangerous to Floridas children, adults and families, said Dr. John Armstrong, state surgeon general and secretary of health. These drugs destroy lives, and are threats to public health and safety. The number of people using illicit synthetic drugs is growing in Florida. The American Association of P oison Control Centers r eported that in 2012 Florida poison control centers r eceived 5,202 calls involving exposures to illicit synthetic substances, a considerable spike compared to 2,906 calls in 2010. S ynthetic marijuana, often known as K2 or S pice, is one of the substances whose popularity is alarmingly high, as noted by the Office of Na tional Drug Control Policy. A ccording to the 2011 M onitoring the Future survey of drug-use trends among youth, 11.4 percent of 12th graders used K2 or S pice in the past year, r anking it the second most common illicit drug used by that age group. Often sold as incense and falsely marketed as natural, labels of Spice claim the product contains a psycho-active material taken from plants. Chemical analyses actually reveal that the active ingredients are instead synthetic cannabinoid compounds. B ecause these chemicals are considered to have high potential for abuse and no medical benefit, the Drug Enforcement A dministration designated its five active chemicals as Schedule I controlled substances, making them illegal to sell, buy, or process. Anyone experiencing an adverse reaction to an illicit synthetic substance should contact their local poison center at (800) 2221222.

Protesters wont gain any respectI drove around and saw people protesting the Zimmerman verdict. I wonder how many of them actually know all of the details. Actually, Im guessing theres only two who do. And ones dead and ones life will never be the same. J ustified or not, two lives have been lost. I see young men jumping around on street corners in the middle of summer, with hoodies on, sweating to death trying to make a point about a case Im willing to bet they know nothing about. One young man was screaming obscenities to passersby, while grabbing his crotch, and holding a sign that read Justice and Peace for Travon. (Yes, Trayvon was spelled incorrectly. I just have to ask myself just how much peace this young man wanted. What kind of justice does he want? Did he follow the trial? Did he do his own r esearch? Or was he being a follower and using this forum as a place to act the fool? Now, before everyone jumps on my case, Im from the hood. Im not new to the racism that exists; however, I know that we have to present ourselves in a different light to be seen in a different light. J umping around with your pants around your thighs, grabbing your crotch and cussing out white drivers will never gain you any respect.W elfare recipients live high on the hogFr om the comments I get from a lot of people, they are sick of the people in this city on welfare, living other peoples money and living high on the hog. People on welfare are able to purchase the same things the common working person is able to purchase. So heres the reasons they have kids, receive a payment for each one, get into sec 8 housing, and get into all the government subsidized programs they can so they wont have to work. Wow, no wonder they wanted Obama in as president. They dont worry about not getting 40 hours a week for work. They spend more time figuring out how to get stuff for free. By the way, Obamacare, as its called, is not a government paid program that money comes from the tax payers, and for the liberal democrats who voted for it before a new congress came to power, they did that just to look good for the people who have the only inclination to live off the government welfare system. Quit having kids! In todays economy, seeing a mother with two or three kids especially in Fort Pierce, theres no way shes got any career going to afford those kids. Sorry people, but welfare is not a career opportunity. H opefully someday welfare will be eliminated and these people will quit breeding just for that government welfare check. To the welfare ranterI sincerely dont understand how such ignorance still exists. The writer, who constantly complains about people on welfare, (Ive dubbed him the welfare ranter), has way too much time on his or her hands. I know its only one person writing those rants because the level of ignorance is the same throughout all of them. If you have such a problem with the residents of Fort Pierce, MOVE! Quit whining about welfare and people in government housing. It is what it is. Theres always been those less-fortunate, those who still work hard and cant get ahead, those who dont try to better themselves and those who constantly complain about all of them. You are the cancer that needs eradicating. Move to the suburbs, learn how to write effectively, become an activist, but please, shut your stupid mouth up about the city of Fort Pierce and its residents. Y ou get on my last nerve. A view on the Zimmerman caseF or the past one and a half years, the nation has watched and listened about the death of Trayvon Martin. We were barraged with photos released by the media of a smiling 12-year old child wearing a football jersey. We were told that Trayvon was on his way home from a store after purchasing a tea and Skittles, when he was confronted and ultimately shot and killed by an overzealous George Zimmerman, a wannabe policeman. The media sold the story that Trayvon was completely innocent and that Zimmerman was a killer. Shortly after the shooting, the president even weighed in saying if he had a son, he would look like Tr ayvon. After his comments, not only was the case portrayed as a murder involving a child, but a black child, inserting race into the equation. The FBI investigated to see if race was an issue and concluded after an extensive r eview, that no racism existed. The Sanford Police Department further concluded that the shooting was justified and that no charges would be filed. Not satisfied, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and other black activists used the shooting to promote hate and to infuriate the black populace. Bowing to pressure, the local decision not to prosecute was overridden, and the State Attorney was brought in to file charges. After the charge of Second Degree Murder was filed, the state attorneys took to the airwave's to vilify and convict Zimmerman before the case ever went to trial. Dur ing the trial the true facts of the case were revealed. We learned that Trayvon had grown considerably and was not the portrayed smiling 12year old. We learned that the neighborhood where the shooting occurred was being victimized by young black males committing burglary. We learned that Zimmerman, a resident and community watch volunteer, observed a young black man in the neighborhood, who he did recognize. He called the police. When he lost sight of the young man because he ran, he got out of his car to get the number off a nearby condo to tell police the location where he lost sight of the fleeing y oung man. While returning to his vehicle, he was confronted and assaulted by the awaiting young man. While being pinned on the ground and having his head bashed against the sidewalk, Zimmerman feared for his life and used his licensed firearm in self-defense. The jury after hearing the facts returned a not guilty verdict. Not satisfied with the verdict, Sharpton, Jackson and now Attorney General Holder, took to the airwaves, to stir hate and call for protests. As a result of their hate speech, across the nation several innocent people have been injured and thousands of dollars in property damage has occurred. It is sad when anybody, regardless of age or race, loses their life. Even worse is when people use a death to promote their own agenda and cause a racial divide in our great country. The constant attempt of some to divide us into groups of black or white should be replace with one, where we all belong to one group, with our colors being r ed, white and blue. No end in sight to social servicesPr etty much lost in the immigration debate is the cost to those of us already living here. We've heard about increased competition for already scarce jobs. But in addition, America is paying the price in increased so-called r edistributive programs. The number of people on food stamps has doubled under President Obama. All of the other costly, government provided social services are increasing rapidly. There is no end in sight.Stop the regulationsO ur oppressive national government is over-regulating us. We are tired of being told how much salt we can put on our food, what kind of windows we can but for our houses, what types of guns we can own, what kinds of prayers we can say, and where we can say them, what type of energy we can use, what type of doctor we can see, and when, and what we are permitted to do to elect political candidates of our choice. This is the tyranny our Founding Fathers fought against. 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. Sometimes when computers malfunction, the timing can be coincidental causing y ou to chase your tail around trying to fix it. M ost of the time when y our computer starts acting squirrelly, its good practice to consider the last thing that happened r ight before the problem popped up and then try to undo whatever it is that was changed. B ut then again, sometimes undoing the last thing that happened can be a red herring, causing yo u to spin your wheels for hours. Take this email I r eceived from George for instance: "Hi Sean. Read y our articles every week and look forward to them. I t's the first article I look for in Hometown News. "Sean, I was having a problem with my M icrosoft mouse, so my son gave me an optical mouse to install. I just disconnected the old one and plugged in the optical mouse and turned the computer on. It began loading files for it and now, every time I turn on the computer, I have to hit F1 to continue loading windows. "Then I'm told that Windows has updated my computer clock and asks me to check it. It is always wrong and I have to correct the month, year and time. Do you have any ideas what is causing this because it never has done this before? I'm sure it had to do with adding the new mouse (italics added by me). I recall reading one of y our articles where you said most computer problems were due to software added to the computer. Any corrections I can make? Thank you in advance and please don't stop writing your articles because you certainly have made a big difference to so many of us." George from Port St. Lucie. On the surface, it would appear George is on the r ight track, because he knows that when he added the new hardware (the mouse) and often when new hardware is installed problems can occur. But, after reading his email and considering what was going on, I realized that George was about to start "chasing rabbits." This is how I replied to George: "Hi. Thanks for reading! What's happening on your system likely has nothing to do with the new mouse, just coincidence that it started happening at the same time you added a new piece of hardware. Y our machine is probably older than three years, y es? On your motherboard is a small battery, such as that found in a watch. When that battery runs down, you will have to hit F1 every time you boot and reset the clock. With the battery dead it loses track of time when it powers down and all BIOS settings have to be reset on boot up. Un-plug the system, open the 'can' and look for a watch-like battery (probably about the size of a quarter) and r eplace it. That ought to correct the issue. Hope that helps and thanks again for reading." Sean The next day I opened my email and found the following e-mail from George: "Hello Sean. Thank you so much for the info on the dead battery. I never thought of that and ye s, my machine is over seven years old and I have never opened the 'can,' but the way you explained it, I think I can do that. I will let you know how I make out. Again thank you so much for your help." And the day after that: "Hello Sean. Just a follow up on your advice regarding replacing the computer's battery.

W eston-based Florida C ommunity Bank is making the transition from a holding company for the assets of failed banks to one of the states largest banking operations. FCB recently completed its first negotiated acquisition, buying Great Florida B ank of Coral Gables. Based on Great Floridas most r ecent report of outstanding shares of common stock, the deal is valued at about $42.5 million with FCB paying $2.34 for each share. FCB, a subsidiary of Bond Str eet Holdings, was formed in 2009 and used to maintain the assets of failed banks in cooperation with the Federal Deposit I nsurance Corp. Great F lorida also was in shaky condition, but FCB already was involved in turning it around, FCB President Kent Ellert said in a telephone interview. Based on the pricing, we feel OK about the assets of Great Florida. The combined operations put FCB as the fourth largest bank based in Florida with assets of $4.4 billion and 67 offices along both Florida coasts. Mr. Ellert doesnt expect any of the offices will close. V ery little overlapped between our two operations, he said. FCB is now poised to become a statewide bank, something Florida hasnt had with a state-based bank in several years. It will need to move into the Jacksonville, Panhandle, Tallahassee and Tampa Bay markets to do it. In the news release announcing the deal, Mr. Ellert said, The transaction with Great Florida Bank is truly a game changer for our Company as we have been eager to expand our presence in Miami, Floridas largest metro market. We are a Florida-based, F lorida-focused company and the merger with Great F lorida Bank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions. C onsistent with our previously completed eight successful acquisitions, this merger will significantly enhance our Florida footprint and will provide a foundation for us to augment our commercial lending team to further generate organic growth, he said. M. Mehdi Ghomeshi, Pr esident of Great Florida B ank, said in the news re lease, "This merger is a win for our stockholders, customers and banking franchise. This business combination significantly enhances our combined abilities to be one of the financially strongest and most competitive community banking organizations in Florida. We are confident that this merger is a highly attractive strategic alignment for all of our constituents. The transaction is expected to be completed by the end of the fourth quarter of 2013, subject to customary conditions, including receipt of regulatory approvals and the approval of Great Florida stockholders.We are a Florida-based, Florida focused company and the merger with Great Florida Bank adds significant scale to our brand and will result in meaningful synergies that will benefit customers and communities of both institutions.K ent Ellert FCB President www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, July 26, 2013 Sebastian River Area A7 8466 US HWY 1 Wabasso, FL 32970(772)584-6337liquidaddiction3@yahoo.com069146 Lobster Season Starts Aug. 6th!!WE TEACH ALL LEVELS OF CER TIFICA TION Full Air Fill Station Full Equipment Service Nitrox Fills VIP &Hydro Guided Lobster Dives Guided Night Dives Monthly Dive Trips Surf Lessons Charter Boat Free Diving 069060 BusinessChamber to recognize businesses INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The deadline is fastapproaching for local businesses to submit their nominations for the Indian River Chambers 2013 Industry A ppreciation Awards program.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY B ig Brothers Big Sisters of S t. Lucie, Indian River and O keechobee counties re ceived a $40,000 grant from the Indian River Community F oundation to fund Mentoring for Success in Early Childhood, a new program to improve kindergarten readiness for at-risk children in I ndian River County. The program is a collaborative pilot project between Big Br others Big Sister and the Early Learning Coalition of I ndian River, Martin and O keechobee Counties in which 50 at-risk pre-kindergarten students will be assigned a mentor three times a week to help develop pre-literacy skills. The mentors, supplied by AmeriCorps staff from Big Br others Big Sisters, will also focus on engaging the families of students in literacy activities to support continued learning in the home environment. The program is the first and only local mentoring program working with pre-kindergarten students and is considered an important part of helping Indian River County achieve its M oonshot Moment of having 90 percent of third grade students reading on grade level by 2018. AmeriCorps staff and members are excited for this new opportunity to partner with the Early Learning Coalition to target pre-k students, said Jenna Stinnett, Americorps program director. AmeriCorps members have seen firsthand, the difference strong pre-literacy skills can make in a student entering K indergarten. These experienced members are excited to give students a solid foundation to build upon when they enter school. We are very thankful and honored to re ceive the Indian River Community Foundation's generous gift. The $40,000 grant was awarded by the Indian River C ommunity Foundation through a competitive grants program designed to address time-sensitive community needs in the focus areas of literacy, homelessness and mental health/substance abuse. Kerry Bartlett, Executive Director of the Indian River Community Foundation, said her Board of Directors appreciated the opportunity to help launch Indian River Countys first mentoring program for pre-kindergarten students. W e ve been working for ov er a year in cooperation with other individuals, local businesses and nonprofits to support Indian River Countys M oonshot Moment literacy goals, Ms. Bartlett said. But, this is the first time weve had the opportunity to help launch a program that will have such a lasting impact on the future success of children in our community. B ig Brothers Big Sisters of St L ucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties is a one-toone mentoring organization that served 1,692 children in 2012 through a variety of mentoring programs.

These grants mark the fifth y ear the Community Foundation has operated a competitive grant program driven by contributions from local philanthropists interested in addressing timesensitive community needs. The Community Foundation uses a Board-appointed committee of local experts and community leaders to r eview the proposals and recommend to the board how grants should be awarded. Ms. Bartlett said the Community Foundation Board of Dir ectors makes it a priority to connect interested donors with organizations that have measurable plans for impacting Indian River C ounty. Community Foundation representatives work closely with each organization throughout the year to ensure they are tracking their r esults. E very donor to the Unrestricted Fund receives a midy ear and a final report on the progress of the grant awards, Ms. Bartlett said. This is one of the reasons the fund has grown every y ear.

However, building and new construction will bring in more taxable properties, r esulting in a $4 million net gain, Mr. Minner said. C ouncilmembers have said they are pleased to be able to keep the old tax r ate and still have enough funds to keep up the services and quality of life residents expect in Sebastian. C ouncilman Jim Hill said the credit for that is on the shoulders of city staff leadership, not just the city council. The council will vote on a final tax rate and approve a budget in September. The tax rate approved by the council at that time may be lower, but it may not exceed the $3.72 per $1,000 amount, unless the council votes to resend all the residents notices of a change in the mail, which would be quite costly to the city. W ith the property tax r ate at $3.72 per $1,000 in assessed taxable value, a property owner in Sebastian with a house valued at $150,000 after exemptions could expect to pay $558 to the city in property taxes. Ed H erlihy, a member of the budget review committee, said the committee recommends keeping the rate the same going into the 2013-14 year and also recommends that the city not use any of the general fund reserves, but to keep it for a rainy day. A bout $4.7 million is kept in the general fund r eserve.

The Majestic Theatre in Ve ro Beach is still offering select showings of the operas filmed live at The M etropolitan Opera in New Yo rk this summer, including performances of Turandot in July and The Barber of S eville in August. T urandot, an Italian opera set in China, follows the story of a prince in love with a princess who wants nothing to do with him. It contains the famous tenor aria, Nessun Dorma. Sho wings are July 27 and J uly 31 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $12.50 each. This performance of T urandot features Marcello Giordani, an opera star that has been to Vero Beach several times for live performances and will return again this fall, said Joan Ortega-Cowan, president of Ve ro Beach Opera. The opera organization partnered with the theater several years ago to bring the live opera performances to Vero Beach and the r esponse has been tremendous, Mrs. Ortega-Cowan said. O pera encompasses all of the arts, the orchestra, the singers, the costumes and the sets, and its been around for several hundred y ears, she said. The age of the art form and the fact that Americans are rarely exposed to it, mean that many people do not understand its appeal, Mrs. Ortega-Cowan said. P eople tend to think its for older, stuffy, intellectuals, but when operas started they were for the average person in Italy, they were accessible to all people, she said. Americans just havent had the same access to opera as Europeans. S ubtitles are available for people who want to understand every word of an opera that isnt in their native language, but the music alone can tell the story, whether a comedy, r omance, drama or something else. Dur ing the summer, the shows are part of The Met: Live in HD Encore series, meaning they are DVD r ecordings of live shows, but during the fall, winter and spring months, the shows are actually simulcast live into the theatre. This fall, the live shows will begin again, and season subscriptions will again be available.T ry Majestic operas to beat the heat By Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.comMarcello Giordani is one of the major stars of The Metropolitan Opera in New York and his performances can be seen in V ero Beach via The MET Live in HD series at The Majestic Theatre in Vero Beach.

Ev er After-The Musical, written by Nathan Har tswick and Bill Francoeur and produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, is a hilarious parody of daytime TV. Host Sally Lizzie J esse Donatello-Griffin wonders if time truly heals all wounds so she invites Cinderella and her middleaged 'beauty-impaired' stepsisters to reconcile with each other after being estranged for 20 years. What about Snow White and the Evil Queen? They are there too along with a trash-talking clairvoyant mirror, an unfortunate prince who is turning slowly back into a frog, and even Jiminy Cricket now an occupational therapist and author of the book My Life as Your Conscience. The musical is punctuated by questions from obnoxious studio audience members, ridiculously funny infomercials for fairy tale related products, and six knee-slapping, handclapping musical dance numbers.

F riday, July 26, 2013 B6 Sebastian River AreaHometown News 069057V ivian Marie O'Connor, 88, died after a long illness on Friday, June 28, 2013. She was born November 17, 1924 in Brooklyn, New York. V ivian was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 50 years, John (Jack) O'Connor. She is survived by her four daughters; Nancy Brown of Macungie, PA, Barbara Satterlee of Elmira, NY, Judy Goldblum of Sebastian, FL, and Linda Hughes of Powder Springs, GA. She was a loving grandmother to 12 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. Also surviving is her sister Jeanne of Albuquerque, NM and a niece and two nephews. V ivian and her husband spent the first part of their lives on Long Island, NY, then moving to PA. After retiring, they relocated to Barefoot Bay, FLwhere they lived for almost 30 years. The family wishes to thank Glenbrooke at Palm Bay, which was her home for the last 2 1/2 years and Vitas Hospice for the devoted and loving care they provided for mom.VIVIAN O'CONNORNovember 17, 1924 June 28, 2013 Being a true sports nut, I love the month of July. B aseball is in full swing and pennant races are heating up. Footballs training camps are set to open. What I admit to enjoying the most is waking up early, flipping on the television and watching tennis at Wimbledon and then a week or so later, doing the same to tune in golf. As I write this from the comfort of my recliner, The O pen Championship is being played. Just as I did a couple weeks back, I will wake early this weekend, sit down with my tea and crumpets and enjoy golf competition being played on a venue unlike any Ive played here in the states. O kay, I dont really care for hot tea and I confess to never having had a crumpet, but I think coffee and an English muffin will do. The oldest major in golf happens to also be the only one not played on this side of the pond. Thats Britspeak for the Atlantic O cean. Im trying to get in character and feel the mood. I even have my umbrella next to my r ecliner. With the weather w e've been having it feels like Scotland here, but warmer. The Open treats us to a totally different game from what we are used to playing or watching. Golf here is played mainly through the air. We have lots of water hazards, not too much wind and soft, over-watered fairways and greens. Open courses are golf courses in the truest sense. Bunkers are actually penal. In stark contrast to here, pros want no part of any bunker in this w eeks event. There are several reasons why I love The Open. It is not just that it is the oldest of the majors. I think its because it is played on courses that are as courses we re meant to be. Golf originated with the bored and solitary shepherds of the Dark Ages. It was a quiet way for them to pass the time without going crazy from boredom while endlessly herding their flocks around the meadow. S heep are gentle, lovable creatures, but hardly stimulating company. So, shepherds would pick up a lump of wood and a fairly r ound stone and whack it about while one sheep followed another around the fields from sun-up to sunset. They didnt keep score or argue over who had the better stick or rock. It was simply something to pass the time. The terrain over which shepherds watched their flocks was a rolling, natural meadow. The closer to the sea, the more rolling it became and the more entrenched with long grass, heather and sharp, thorny gorse. It was there that the game became more fun and skill-driven. Who wants to knock a rock around on an empty, flat piece of yard anyway? On those meadows, golf evolved. Of course, there are organic things that just seemed to happen. Mother N ature was the only course architect back then. She allowed the wind and rain to shape the land. The animals hid from the frigid air and spray from the sea in small pits. Shepherds r ightfully feared hitting their rock into one of these pits. I'm guessing the sheep we re not very fond of those moments either. Over time, some shepherds became quite good at this game and in 1860 the very first Open Championship was played. By then, golf had reached the point where it was a proper game, with proper rules and the best player usually won. A tradition was born and it has grown more glorious with each passing year. With the exception of bombs dropping during world wars, nothing has stopped this event from taking place each summer. The Open is a romantic celebration of the way our game is meant to be played. It encourages risk and r ewards those fortunate enough with a wee bit of luck. Even those who play safe may suffer from an unfortunate bounce here and there. It closely emulates real life with all the crazy bounces, good and bad luck, and the occasional reward for skill and bravado. B est of all, the winner's trophy, the Claret Jug, is lent to the champion for the next year. His name is inscribed on its base and he gets to trot around the globe showing it off. Its the trophy of the Champion of the Y ear, winner of The Open, golfs oldest, and perhaps, greatest event. Now if youll excuse me, Im actually craving a crumpet.
