"We want to be able to share with the agencies and community leaders and see the gaps in the services and to find out what places can fix those gaps or collaborate to find how to fix it together." Ms. Robertson hopes that the symposium will turn into an annual one so that community leaders that help those with poverty, or those who are interested in helping, can identify what methods have worked and what gaps still need to be filled.

Ne ver, in her wildest dreams did she think that it would become an animal shelter or that seven years later her and her team would r escue about 1,500 animals a y ear. H.A.L.O., meaning Helping Animals Live and Overcome, celebrated their seven y ear anniversary in August, a momentous occasion and a time to look back at their successes and the obstacles that they overcame. It all started with a phone call. "I had someone call about a litter of kittens that needed a home," Ms. Petrone said. Their mom was hit by a car and we took them in. That was the start." S oon after she filed for nonprofit status and soon the ball began rolling and doors opened up. Ev ery shelter that is named a no-kill' shelter operates by their own rules. H.A.L.O. makes the pledge to care for each animal physically, emotionally and medically until they can be rehabilitated and find a forever home. F or some animals, their forever home is the shelter. "W e take in all age groups," Ms. Petrone said while a 13-year-old dachshund, that was very eager to go out for play time, yapped at her.

The practice was founded by Dr. David Griffin in 1999. A few years later in 2001, Dr. Richard Steinfeld, an orthopaedic surgeon, came on as a partner. A Navy veteran, Dr. Steinfeld received many awards and recognitions for his skills, including th e U.S. Navy Achievement Medal for Heroic Achievement and even being nominated as the NAVAIRLANT Flight Surgeon of the Year. Shortly afterwards in 2007, Dr. Marcus Malone, a rehabilitation and physical medicine physician, joined the team. His specialti es go beyond acute and chronic pain management, and include treating patients with disabilities and neurological impairments. Even though Dr. Griffin retired in 2012, the practice has continued to bring the very best care to everyone who enters the offi ce. The success of the center is made possible by the friendly and caring staff, who assist the doctors and their patients. In addi tion to Drs. Steinfeld and Malone, there are three physician assistants, a complete physical therapy department and several other support staff who keep the office running efficiently. The caring staff and doctors are the true heart of the practice, striving every day for excellent patient care and service. As a result, patients from all over the Treasure Coast come to the Orthopaedic Center of Vero Beach, some from as far away as M elbourne and Palm Beach, to be treated in the professional and friendly environment the center offers. The center focuses on the treatment of the musculoskeletal system, and their specialties includes total joint replacement in ad dition to treating knee, hip and shoulder problems using both surgical and non-surgical methods. Other services include general orthopaedics, physical therapy, fracture care, sports injurie s, arthritis and hand care. One of the things that puts the Orthopaedic Center of Vero Beach above the competition is that the physical therapy department is located within the clinic itself, so patients dont have to drive all over town to get the care they need. Patients can be confident that the caring staff that t akes care of them regularly will continue to provide the quality care the center has become known for. Its this high level of communication between the patients, phy sicians and clinic staff that allows for the personalized treatment needed for optimum health. Orthopaedic Center of Vero Beach is located at 1285 36th St., Suite 100 in Vero Beach. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call the office at (772) 778-2009, toll-free at (866) 778-2009, or go online to www.orthocentervb.com.

"Under his leadership, IRSC has become a nationally respected, highperforming institution with far-reaching benefits for the Tr easure Coast and our students. In recognition of Dr. M assey's many contributions, dedication to excellence and world-class r esults, the IRSC Board commends and congratulates him for receiving this welldeserved national honor." Dr Massey was appointed IRSC's third president and CEO in 1988, and his tenure in office has been marked by a legacy of exceptional accomplishments. Examples include: Expanding enrollment by 300 percent in more than 100 Degree and Certificate programs. Significantly expanding the College's five campuses to include over 700 acres and 1,500,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities. Leading the College's transition from Indian River C ommunity College to Indian River State College, expanding the College mission to become a Baccalaur eate degree-granting institution, and establishing 20 new Bachelor's Degree programs linked directly to r egional workforce needs.

Massey The lineup includes the GEICO Skytypers Airshow T eam, Tin Stixx, Jet truck driver Chris Darnell, Greg K oontz and the Alabama boys, Matt Younkin, Quicksilver, Scott Scooter' Yoak and Christ Darnell. The GEICO Skytypers are a six-aircraft squadron, using vingtage SNJ-2 WWII aircraft. The will write giant billboard letters in the sky that can be seen for 15 miles. The various other acts of tight passes, head on sequences, aerial loops, tumbles and low flying ribbon cutting is only a portion of the agenda. T odd Howder, president of the Vero Beach Air Show, has been a part of getting this show off the ground' since the start. He fondly remembers the air show's of years past and volunteering while he was in high school. "I was born and raised here," Mr. Howder said. "We r eally wanted something family oriented and to get something going in the community. We think Vero B each is a very aviation enthusiastic community." He w ent on to mention that very few of the county's y outh knew of the history of the airport and its involvement in World War II as a navy base. They're losing history and bringing this air show back brings the aviation back to the forefront again," he said. "It's time to get a whole new generation excited." In addition to the high flying stunts, the organizers hope to raise money for local charities that reach the skies. "V ero Beach Air Show is a nonprofit," he said. "Everyone putting this together has put in lots of time and effort. This has been a total dedication to make this happen." All proceeds will go to the I ndian River County Ex change Club, Treasure C oast Exchange Club, Vero B each Exchange Club and the Indian River County Veteran's Council. Those organizations filter down to help organizations such as CASTLE and Youth G uidance. W ith such a big undertaking, the air show is calling for volunteers. F or those interested, there will be a meeting Saturday, Aug. 24 at the Sunjet H anger at the Vero Beach M unicipal Airport, 3400 Cherokee Drive, Vero Beach, at 10 a.m. There will be various opportunities for volunteers for helping with parking, manning the food trucks, merchandise tents and hospitality volunteers," he said. "We will also have floaters for various times through the event." S ponsorship opportunities will exist until the day of the event, Mr. Howder said. A second air show has been set for the May 10 and 11 and will feature the U.S. N avy Blue Angels. These guys are the top dogs of what they do," Mr. How der said. "Having something like that in your back yard, you can see and do the math of what kind of groups you think would attend." F or the October show, Mr. How der expects 30,000 attendees and hopes to triple that for the May show.

hurdles to jump since its creation, but met each obstacle head on. The costs to the nonprofit we re staggering for repairs that exceeded $30,000 the first year, a leaky roof in the second year and the ongoing r eplacement of the kennels. S pace was also an issue with the shelter. The demand caused a waiting list for the shelter to bring in animals. W ith help from the community, fundraisers and local businesses, all repairs have been taken care of, with the exception of the kennels which is a work in progress. "W e have replaced 20, but we still have 60 more to go," Ms. Petrone said. "We started with the worst ones and have kept going." Their biggest hurdle happened during 2013 when the shelter was handed a $14,000 vet bill that needed immediate payment. "I t was a rush to pay off in a month's time," Ms. Petrone said. "Luckily, because of the media, fundraisers and community, we were able to pay it off. We've now developed a medical emergency fund and fundraisers for that fund to keep it in the positive. Our medical expenses average $150,000 a year." S he said that 90 percent of the animals who come into the shelter are strays. In the past few months, every animal rescued from F ellsmere has been heartworm positive. "O ne treatment for heartworm can run $2,000 to $3,000," she said. These costs are supplemented by the shelter's grooming, boarding, pest control and boutique services. Ms. Petrone's ultimate goal is to make Indian River C ounty a no-kill county by the time she retires. "I r eally think there is a lot of love in this community," she said. "I can't even tell you the amount of love and support I've gotten here. The county takes in about 6,000 animals a year. If I'm taking in 1,500 of those animals, in the future, we can hopefully work together to make it no kill and we wouldn't have to euthanize animals for things that are treatable. It just takes the space and finances. That would be my perfect future." F or more information on H.A.L.O.,call (772)589-PAWS (7297) or visit www.HALORescueFL.org.

The recreational red snapper season is open Aug. 23 through Aug. 25 (a Friday through Sunday) in south A tlantic federal waters. FWC researchers and volunteers will be out along Florida's east coast during each day of the season, asking recreational fishers about their red snapper trips and their catch. R esearchers will also collect biological samples of harvested fish, which will not affect the fillet, to help determine the age of each red snapper. B iologists sampled more than 2,000 red snapper during the federal opening in 2012 as a r esult of these efforts. Anglers' survey responses and biological samples will give researchers valuable data about the red snapper fishery. F isheries scientists could use this information in future population assessments. While the federal opening will have no size limit and a bag limit of one fish per person per day, in Florida state waters there is a 20-inch total length minimum size limit, in addition to a bag limit of two fish per person, per day. Vessels with red snapper smaller than the state's minimum size limit must travel through state waters without stopping and have fishing gear stowed. When anglers catch a tagged r ed snapper, FWC researchers ask that they report it to the Angler Tag Return Hotline at (800) 367-4461.

Dear Welfare RanterI am not the one who labeled you that but it suits you. You have not done your research. Many people are on welfare because the government put them there. Yes! It's the government's fault. Take this: Our court system. Family law judges are protecting deadbeats and not the children even when there is solid evidence. I have taken my ex to court 12 times in six years. He ow es over $110,000. I usually win but he only has to pay anywhere between $3,000$0. It is cheaper to purge than to pay child support. The last time I took him to court I had a detective and his sworn investigation which revealed a business and thousands in income. I also produced 30 copies of checks written out to the deadbeat with his endorsement on the back. G uess what the judge said? "Not enough!" Did you know (no, y ou didn't do your research) that in 2010 in just the state of F lorida alone, deadbeats owed over 6 trillion dollars...more than the richest man(Bill Gates) in the world! And that is just one state out of 50. He r e's another thing: the government has allowed hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies to price-gouge patients into debt and homelessness. One can of Dermaplast from the drugstore cost $8 yet on the hospital bill I was charged $50. And the hospitals will not allow you to bring in your own drugs-preventing you from being a good steward. And how about this: the government did not do their job in monitoring the banking and mortgage industry before we fell into a bad recession, (the government is more interested in listening to our phone calls apparently), and this too caused many to lose their jobs and homes and go on welfare. How about these big employers who are cutting the hours if full-timers to part time so they pay less out and drop benefits? And another...all those illegals taking up what few jobs left in this recession instead of employing Americans. Let's not forget about our dear president himself. He preached he would lower the national debt, but now it is doubled! He promised new jobs with the so-called stimulus money. D idn't work. He bailed out banks(with taxpayer money) who then turnaround and partied on that money and charged us outrageous new fees for stupid things...all of this hurts everyone who's trying to make ends meet and when we don't we need food stamps and Medicaid. It appears to me that you were not affected by the recession or anything of the above. Maybe you are rich and live a very sheltered life unaware of everything that is happening with our country, the president, and the people. Welfare ranter, I hope I opened your eyes but I doubt it. T eachers unions?This is in response to the reader who sent in the rant last w eek titled "What happened to teaching?" I have to question where that reader is from. They couldn't possibly reside in St. Lucie County and come to the conclusions they have drawn. In the opposite of that reader, I still think teaching is a revered profession and I have a high level of appreciation and respect for all the teachers I know. As far as attributing the demise to the teachers' unions with a powerful force... well, frankly that is just misinformation. Unions are not even allowed in Florida for teachers. What they have may be dubbed a "union" but in essence it is not much more than a bargaining unit with little if any power at all. And I say that with no disrespect to them. They do the best they can up against a powerful school board and an ov erbearing, overrated, overpaid, and overstaffed administration who in my opinion may say they always have the best interest of the student in mind but clearly don't. The comment to pay scale increases is at most laughable since the teachers I know, at least the ones in St. Lucie County, went the last five y ears without any pay increases and have even been asked to take pay cuts. The only part of the rant at all that I agree with is that the kids are getting lost in the shuffle. But the ones responsible for that are the administrators and politicians, not the teachers. Most teachers across the United States remain underpaid, and are r outinely thrown under the bus and used as scapegoats for our problems with education. Teachers are in the profession because they want to educate our children and are dedicated to help them to succeed in this world. Their desire to teach has not been diminished by the constant red tape; pay cuts, and badgering of administrators and politicians. They remain committed and will continue to fight for what is best for their students. My hat goes off to every teacher and they have my highest respect for the hard work they do under the guidelines they are expected to perform under and the unnecessary hoops they are made to jump through. For the record, I am not a teacher.A note to who violated our privacy If y ou were hungry and came to my door I would have given y ou food. Instead you chose to take sentimental items from deceased friends and items from our sons serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are in our 70s; if your parents we re violated would you not care? Do something better with y our lives. Exonerate yourselves and return items (make your parents proud). Remember, you can run but you can't hide. God sees all!Sunpass causes unemployment?If y ou buy and use "Sunpass" you are contributing to a toll collector losing their job and having to go on unemployment and maybe even on some other government assistance such as housing subsidies, food stamps, etc. The statement above is an absolute fact. It has already caused many collectors to lose their full time jobs.Do somethingWhen you sit and look at any local causeway or Hutchinson I sland at night, it is breathtaking the reflections of the lights on the water, hearing the sounds of fish jumping and birds diving but In the day time we have a different story that makes my heart bleed. Imagine being lucky enough to grow in Martin County and having the opportunity to be able to water ski, fish, swim, paddle board, surf, etc To be able to sit on the river and watch children play and watch people throw a stick in the water for their dogs to go fetch. After all that's what Martin County is all about, the quality of life, good clean fun and family activities, to help maintain that quality of life we have become accustomed to A wonderful area for tourism due to the wonderful beaches, parks on the water, restaurants on the water and the ability to be able to approach it all by water. Many families rely on clean water in Martin County, due to owning any business that sells or rents anything from sailboats and paddle boards to fishing tackle, bait and surf boards or a restaurant on the water. An area where it would not be Sunday if there were not a thousand boats hanging out on the Sandbar, swimming, grilling and just hanging out with friends and family. It is like taking a mini vacation in your own back yard. Let's not forget Labor D ay the last weekend before the chaotic holidays begin fun in the sun and water everywhere. The draining of Lake Okeechobee will mean total devastation for the entire Treasure C oast. Local business owners will cease to exist therefore their homes will go into foreclosure, causing a trickledown effect. Creating many abandoned establishments. T ourism will cease to exist. Why would you go somewhere in Florida that you could not rent or buy any gear necessary for water sports and not be able to swim or even enter the water ways. What will become of this beautiful community full of great people? Please we all need to do what we can to help, for the future of our children and of our community? Regarding Kaitlyn HuntI just read an article regarding Kaitlyn Hunt. Here's something I'd like to know Why didn't the 14 year old's mother get involved before she waited for the other turned 18? Why did she wait? Sounds like she just wanted to be vindictive and now the government wants blood out of this. Now, I looked up y oung teenage pregnancy and was startled by the age; anywhere from 14 16 yrs. old and when these young women get pregnant, where are these parents and the government? Most of them run off to the welfare office and start that domino effect rolling. Now, why isn't the paper filled with the guys and women who are involved in this sexual misconduct in the paper? That's wrong too but the government doesn't say anything about that, other than cutting a check to the young mother to help support her and however many kids she has. J ust so they can keep their political careers going at the expense of the tax payer. Oh, by the way those kids having kids, the funds to help pay for them come right out of the honest tax payers pocket. And let's not forget about any family foundation as well which leads to crime. Everything in life has consequences. Editor's note: A ccording to the original arrest affadavit,it states that Kaitlyn Hunt started dating the victim November, 2012.Her 18th birthday was in August,2012.About immigrationDo folks realize that this country lets in more than one million people a year through legal immigration, and that there are about four million people in line waiting their turn to get in? That doesn't sound like a broken immigration system to me, but rather like one that is quite robust. 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. Most of the time, when I get calls for computer help I can usually figure out how to fix things out instinctively. Why? W ell because I examine the contents of the different menus looking for the option that will most likely get me closer to my goal (while keeping in mind whatever it is I'm trying to do). As an added bonus, just about every program out there that has pull down menus have "Help" listed as the last one to the right. So, by the time I get to the last pull down menu I can always open that programs help file and do a search on what I'm trying to do. The help file will then list all the topics that contain whatever words I searched on and from there I can usually figure out how to take the next step. Let's take a look at this in an example. Let's say I'm writing my column with a typical word processing program and I wanted to make the next line that I type bold and larger. Let's also say that I only have a very basic understanding of computers. At this point I have two choices, I can stare at the screen with a blank expression and then call Bob (who's pretty good with computers) and ask him or, I can start looking around the screen for something that may help me r each my goal. As I move my mouse (and my eyes!) around the screen I notice a couple of things; first at the top of the screen, above where the words are being typed, there are (usually) rows pull down menus and buttons available. And, as I move my mouse slowly over the buttons, little boxes pop up telling me what each button does. When I click on the "F ile" option it opens (or pulls down") and I can see all of the commands that are available that have to do with F iling. As I move my mouse to the right, the File pull down menu closes and the E dit menu opens displaying all of the commands available for editing. N ext the View pull down menu opens and then the In sert menu opens. As each menu opens I look at all the options available and for each one I ask myself, "Does this option look like it will help me change my text to bold and larger?" And as each menu does not present an option I go on to the next one eventually getting to the "F ormat" pull down menu. When Format opens, I see it lists Bullets and numbering Borders and shading and what's this? Font?? Hmmm. Let me think I'm trying to change the formatting of my text and text is made up of "fonts," Thinking I may be on the r ight track, I click the Fonts option and a screen opens that allows me to change the characteristics of the type. B ingo! Exactly what I am looking for! It says I am typing in Times New Roman, R egular, Size 12. I change the specs to Times New Roman, B old, Size 14, click OK and voila! My typing is now larger and darker. O k, so, that rather tame demonstration is just an example of how intuitive computing works; at no time did I ever get the urge to go get a book or call tech support for help, I kept in mind what I was trying to do and, after seeing what options were available, discovered the answer on my o wn. Instinctively. No w, I know what a lot of y ou are thinking; that the things you have trouble doing are far more complex than just changing the characteristics of text, how can this possibly help me? And to that I answer the lesson is not in how to change the font size, the lesson is where to go for your answers! N otice that the pull down menus I looked at were all within the program I was using. You should look at the menus and options available within the program where y ou are stuck. Also notice that each pull down menu is a category; all filing options are under "File" and we found our Font options under the "Format" pull down menu. That was no coincidence. I would have been very surprised to findKnow where to look for answers COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Wo r king out, helping others feel fit and gaining a gym family were only some of the perks of purchasing the gym in 2003. "I t' s been great, I've learned a lot," said Ms. S anders. "It's such a small hometown gym. Everyone knows everyone." U nder Ms. Sanders, the gym has flourished and become a go-to center for fitness needs and classes for area gym-goers. "O ur pricing is super competitive," Ms. Sanders said. "I t is all inclusive meaning there are no extra charges for any of the classes. It even includes daycare and that is not offered locally by a lot of gyms." Their memberships range in price by the length of the contract, but the VIP Gold membership includes use of the equipment, fitness assessments, programs, circuit classes, weight training, group cycling, yoga and a va r iety of aerobic classes, as with the regular VIP memberships but the Gold has more. The Gold membership has unlimited use of the tanning bed and a complimentary towel with every visit. There are over 50 classes offered every week, both morning and evenings. "Z umba is popular right now at our club," Ms. S anders said. "Honestly, all of our classes have a good turn out and a loyal following." Each class' attendance rang es from five to 30 people. If interested in joining the gym, dress appropriately and come prepared. "(They) need to wear athletic shoes, a towel and you can bring a water or we sell water and other drinks as w ell," Ms. Sanders said. "N umber one (thing) is a good attitude." S ebastian Gym is open 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and S unday. F or more information,call (772) 388-4916 or visit www.sebastiangym.com.

S onny's Roast Beef and S eafood opened in May and has already developed a consistent clientele of fans from Boston and all over M assachusetts who crave the authentic food of their hometowns. F or those who have never experienced authentic New England style cuisine, S onny's is a treat. Owned by Severio Sonny' R aponi and Carol Lewis, the r estaurant not only brings its family style charm, but a lifetime of experience. After working as an executive chef at Hilltop Steak H ouse, a historic restaurant in Massachusetts, Sonny packed up and retired to the sunshine state. Then, like many retirees, he grew bored and decided to open up his own restaur ant. The duo, with help from family and employees who are like family, greet each customer as they welcome them into their homeyr estaurant. Their attention to detail, r emembering customers' names, previous orders and even where they're from makes the dining experience more like eating a big dinner with family. And when I say a big dinner,' I mean it. If y ou don't bring your appetite, you haven't come prepared. We sipped on bottled tea while we tried our starter dish of New England clam chowder or chowdah' for those from Boston. The creamy combination of flavors was a delight to the taste buds and a plentiful amount of clams. My companion, who hails from Lynn, Mass., was particularly after the roast beef sandwiches when we arrived. S onny served us up both r oast beef and hamburger sliders. The immediate freshness of the meat, the flavor, the preparation of both was incredible. Bu r gers everywhere should taste like this. Roast beef never tasted so good. A quick glance around S onny's kitchen proves why: he has no freezers. W ithout the meat ever being frozen, the flavors stay true to the cut, and you can tell the wealth of the quality in every last bite. N ext was the Captain S onny's Platter. This dish's price may look intimidating, but it is anything but. G ather your friends; you'll need a few to tackle this monstrous meal. This piled high basket has everything for every fish and seafood lover. The bottom of the plate is lined with French fries, cut from potatoes through a slicer that same morning, as S onny believes freshness is the key. It is then topped with large pieces of fried haddock. Piled on that are fried pieces of calamari, clam strips, shrimp, oysters and scallops. There is more The wonder of this dish is the incredibly large amount of whole-bellied clams. These, without a doubt, are what people travel around for to get. On top of all that are freshly sliced onion rings. The batter is nice and light, making way for the freshness of the seafood. In true summer style, we finished off our meal with a slice of watermelon. B etween my companion and me, we were unable to fully finish the Captain S onny's Platter, and had to bring it home with us and we ate it for the next two days. Ms. Lewis boxed up everything for us and sent us on our way with our bellies full and looking forward to leftov ers. C urrently there is a summer menu, but Sonny's will have new items soon with additions of lobster and steaks. The menu also features a children's meal called the D ylan's Kid's Meal' named after Sonny's grandson. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. M onday through Saturday. Sonny's Roast Beef and S eafood is located at 8820 U.S.1,Micco.

Skim board event to raise money for lifeguards, children's hospitalINDIAN RIVER COUNTY When visiting the beach, there is comfort knowing that if the waves get too strong or the undertow takes over, a lifeguard is nearby, watching carefully, and waiting to help. U nfortunately, due to an already stressed budget, there was a threat that lifeguards across the beaches would decrease leaving ocean-lovers alone on the sandy shore. One group has decided that the risk of not having trained lifeguards on the beaches far outweighs the benefits, and is doing their part to help costs associated with maintaining their presence. E pic-Sessions Surf, Skim and Paddle school has teamed up with Mulligans in Vero Beach to present the sixth annual Skim Jam. The event will take place on Aug. 31 on the beach in front of M ulligans from 9 a.m. 4 p .m. In y ears past, the event has raised money for St. J ude's Children's Hospital.

The Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, a regular performer in Indian River County, will celebrate Florida's 500th anniversary by playing the music to an artistic documentary film by a Br evard filmmaker, "The F lorida Suite," on Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Vero Beach Pe r forming Arts Center in Ve ro B each.

"W e usually have a great turnout due to the fact it is at the beach on Labor Day w eekend," said Chris Ellison, owner of Epic-Sessions. "E very year we have around 7075 people that enter the contest and hundreds of onlookers. This year we have also added a pro division, which will be bring in professional skim boarders from all over the state." There will be four divisions in addition to the pro division. The divisions are divided by ability, not age. Pa r ticipants are judged on creativity, wave selection, tricks performed on the way to the wave, on the wave and on the way back from the wave. The top four contestants in each division will win a trophy and prize pack. All contestants will receive a T -shirt and complimentary lunch from Mulligans. Those who go to watch the event can participate in a raffle which will include prizes from local businesses, gift certificates, photogr aphy packages, surf, skim and paddleboard rentals and other goodies. This is really a great cause," Mr. Ellison said. "If we lose out lifeguards, the beaches won't be a safe attraction to tourists. If we start to lose tourists, the already struggling economy will suffer further. This is a great way to help keep the lifeguards on the beach and also help the children at St. J ude's."

Your chance to become a hero to those who defend our freedom and their families comes over Labor Day weekend. Ev ery day, the men and women of our armed forces put their lives on the line so that we can safely enjoy our swimming pools, cookouts, sports and time with our loved ones. When it is time for them to come home, many return bearing the scars of combat and service. O thers come home in a flagdraped coffin. P atriot Golf Day is about these fine men and women. S hould you tee it up over the holiday weekend, please do so at a participating course. Proceeds from your r ounds will go to the families of those who have been injured or killed defending our great nation. To fully appreciate Patriot Golf Day's mission, it's important for you to know how it came to be. Br ad and Brock Bucklin, twins born in Grand Rapids, M ich., were part of a family of five sons of Duane Duane "Buck" and Dawn Bucklin. The boys grew up to become fine young men. Tr ying to find direction in his life, Brock followed his brother into the military, enlisting a year after his brother in August of 2004. In the military Brock found his way and told his father that he planned to enter Officer Tr aining School and make the Army his career. Br ock was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 68th Armor R egiment, 3rd Heavy Br igade Combat Team, and 4th Infantry Division of Fort C arson, Colorado. In D ecember 2005, he was called to service in Iraq. On May 31, 2006, 28-yearold Corporal Brock Bucklin was the "acting mayor" of Fo r ward Operating Base GABE, on the outskirts of B aqubah, 40 miles northeast of Baghdad. Just as a mayor of a town is the point person, the "mayor" of FOB GABE was the "go-to" guy when soldiers had problems or needs. Br ock's duty was to coordinate and manage the independent contractors and support resources to address those needs. On that day, he was assigned to assist a contractor in identifying equipment for transport. The civilian contractors we re r esponsible for moving concrete barriers, the largest 12-feet long, six-feet high and four feet wide. Each barrier weighs as much as 10 tons and while they were moving them onto trailers one of the trucks became stuck. A cargo chain was attached between the truck and another to pull it out. As the workers stood off to the side, the chain snapped and a broken link found Brock, slicing an artery in his neck. M edics arrived and provided treatment to Brock. E ighteen minutes later, a MEDEVAC helicopter transported him to LSA Anaconda Air Force Hospital. A half-hour later Brock B ucklin, having served only 22 months, had died. "I t is a tragedy when a son or daughter dies before you. I t's unnatural. It's the thing that's unacceptable and most troubling," said his father, Buck. Br ad, stationed in Germany, was allowed to accompany his brother's coffin home to Grand R apids. Then-Captain Dan R ooney, a PGA Professional from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and member of the O klahoma Air National G uard, was on that same flight as it carried home the body of Corporal Bucklin. The plane landed at 11:35 p .m., and Rooney watched through the plane's window as the Bucklins awaited Brad and the coffin of their late son. Brock's son, Jacob, was clinging to the leg of his mother. The pilot had requested that passengers remain in their seats until the remains of the fallen hero could be transferred to his family. R ooney looked up and saw that half of the passengers had left the plane. In that moment, Rooney was inspired to give back to the families of fallen heroes. A little over a year after Br ock's funeral, Rooney called Buck, letting him know that his son, along with all the families of those who had perished or became disabled in the line of duty, would not be forgotten. "I am an ordinary person that has been blessed with the extraordinary opportunity to be the flight leader on the Patriot Golf Day mission," says Rooney. "I simply planted a small seed which has been cultivated by PGA Pr ofessionals and great citizens around the United S tates." Br ock Bucklin's son Jacob, now 10, is the recipient of a scholarship generated from R ooney's vision for honoring the fallen heroes The Folds of Honor Foundation, and its largest fundraiser, Patriot Golf Day. "It was good to know that something good came from this," said Buck. "There are a lot of other sons and daughters who did not come home." "N ever could I imagine what it was that Dan Rooney wanted to do," continued B uck. "But I know that my son would be extremely proud." If yo u' d like to be a hero and honor the memories of our fallen heroes, please do so over this Labor Day w eekend by playing at a participating course.

When he began putting together the concept for his film about Florida, he r ecalled the suite by Mr. D elius and organized his film to fit the ebb and flow of the music. The story presented in the film is personal, telling the story of Mr. Johnson's father, retired attorney Andrew Graham who lives a simple life in a Brevard grove. The idea for The Florida S uite' came about after my father built a small log cabin in the middle of his 12-acre citrus grove, located near the headwaters of the Indian River on Florida's central east coast," Mr. J ohnson said. "N ot long after moving in, he brought my grandmother to live with him. S he was beginning to show signs of Alzheimer's disease and he believed it would be better for her to live in the beautiful and safe environment of the grove, rather than an assisted living facility. Observing his act of sacrifice and their life in the grove, I was moved to tell this story," he said. The similarities of the nurturing capable by nature and man are visually explored in the film; impacting the viewer in a different way than if the two parts were separated. The Space Coast Symphony's live performance of Mr. Delius' suite will accompany the film, and may be the first time the music has been performed on the Treasure Coast by a live symphony, Mr. Johnson said.

The surf fest, founded by twin brothers Rich and Phil S alick, was started as a way to raise funds to fight kidney disease and help dialysis patients. The brothers shared a love of the ocean and were professional surfers. Rich Salick was 23 years old when he was diagnosed with IGA N ephropathy/Glomerulonephritis, a disease that breaks down the filtering units in the kidneys. He immediately began dialysis, which Mr. Salick received eight hours a day, three days a week. In S eptember 1974, Phil S alick happily donated one of his kidneys to his twin. While the transplant was successful, Mr. Salick was told that surfing again would be too dangerous. W ith a lot of luck and an amazing support system, Mr. Salick was soon back in his beloved ocean, surfing in competitions and spending his last years on earth doing what he loved. A tragic event for his family, friends and the surfing community, Rich Salick died away on July 2, 2012, while undergoing emergency surgery. The 27th annual event was renamed in Rich's honor. The NKF was created as a fundraiser for other kidney patients, who have been struck with the disease," said Savanna Pitard, special events coordinator for the NKF of Florida. "Phil and Rich personally delivered the money they raised to those in need in a brown paper bag." B each lovers and surfers alike are encouraged to attend the free NFK Rich S alick Pro-Am Surf Fest for a w eek full of entertainment and awesome surfing. Pr ofits raised from the surf Pr o-Am will be donated to help the fight against kidney disease. The number of people, who attend the NKF surf fest, vary each year based on w eather and swell conditions, but averages at more than 50,000 people," Ms. Pitard said. "We typically have over 500 surfers competing." Pr ofessional and amateur surfers will hit the waves on S aturday, Aug. 31. Competitions include the Ron Jon Me n' s Pro, the Alison Moses W omen's Pro, Anarchy Eyew ear Junior Men's Pro, Steve C asanova Men and Women's Pr o Longboard. There will also be a tandem surf competition, as well as a familyfriendly swimsuit competition. "W e have had several big names in surfing come out to the event in the past, including Kelly Slater, the H obgood and Lopez brothers and many more," Ms. Pitard added. "But this is determined on the wave conditions for the weekend, as well as if these guys are out on tour." In addition to a wide r ange of events, the Taste of Br evard and a silent auction will be held on Sunday, Sept. 1 at the Hilton in Cocoa B each. This year, we will be r olling out a scholarship fund, where applicants can apply and will be selected by a board of representatives that have been part of the event and close with Rich," Ms. Pitard said. "Applicants will be chosen based on several different criteria, including grade point average, community service and character." Ms. Pitard added that there will be several awards in honor of Rich that will be given out to volunteers, who clearly exemplify the good will that he displayed. "P eople should attend the NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am Su rf F est to watch world class surfing, enjoy a beautiful day on the beach, listen to daily, live music, enter to win raffles and giveaways, get a free lesson from Ron Jo n School of Surf, watch and participate in tandem surf demos and to support the NKF," Ms. Pitard said. "I t' s truly a fantastic event, with things to do for all ages and all types of people."

Really, this symposium is to start a conversation, said Annabel Robertson, executive director of Harvest Food & Outreach C enter of Indian River C ounty. We want to be able to share with the agencies and community leaders and see the gaps in the services and to find out what places can fix those gaps or collaborate to find how to fix it together. Ms. Robertson hopes that the symposium will turn into an annual one so that community leaders that help those with poverty, or those who are interested in helping, can identify what methods have worked and what gaps still need to be filled.

Ne ver, in her wildest dreams did she think that it would become an animal shelter or that seven years later her and her team would r escue about 1,500 animals a y ear. H.A.L.O., meaning Helping Animals Live and Overcome, celebrated their seven y ear anniversary in August, a momentous occasion and a time to look back at their successes and the obstacles that they overcame. It all started with a phone call. I had someone call about a litter of kittens that needed a home, Ms. Petrone said. Their mom was hit by a car and we took them in. That was the start. S oon after she filed for nonprofit status and soon the ball began rolling and doors opened up. Ev ery shelter that is named a no-kill shelter operates by their own rules. H.A.L.O. makes the pledge to care for each animal physically, emotionally and medically until they can be rehabilitated and find a forever home. F or some animals, their forever home is the shelter.

The practice was founded by Dr. David Griffin in 1999. A few years later in 2001, Dr. Richard Steinfeld, an orthopaedic surgeon, came on as a partner. A Navy veteran, Dr. Steinfeld received many awards and recognitions for his skills, including the U.S. Navy Achievement Medal for Heroic Achievement and even being nominated as the NAVAIRLANT Flight Surgeon of the Year. Shortly afterwards in 2007, Dr. Marcus Malone, a rehabilitation and physical medicine physician, joined the team. His specialti es go beyond acute and chronic pain management, and include treating patients with disabilities and neurological impairments. Even though Dr. Griffin retired in 2012, the practice has continued to bring the very best care to everyone who enters the office. The success of the center is made possible by the friendly and caring staff, who assist the doctors and their patients. In addition to Drs. Steinfeld and Malone, there are three physician assistants, a complete physical therapy department and several other support staff who keep the office running efficiently. The caring staff and doctors are the true heart of the practice, striving every day for excellent patient care and service. As a result, patients from all over the Treasure Coast come to the Orthopaedic Center of Vero Beach, some from as far away as Melbourne and Palm Beach, to be treated in the professional and friendly environment the center offers. The center focuses on the treatment of the musculoskeletal system, and their specialties includes total joint replacement in addition to treating knee, hip and shoulder problems using both surgical and non-surgical methods. Other services include general orthopaedics, physical therapy, fracture care, sports injuries, arthritis and hand care. One of the things that puts the Orthopaedic Center of Vero Beach above the competition is that the physical therapy department is located within the clinic itself, so patients dont have to drive all over town to get the care they need. Patients can be confident that the caring staff that takes care of them regularly will continue to provide the quality care the center has become known for. Its this high level of communication between the patients, physicians and clinic staff that allows for the personalized treatment needed for optimum health. Orthopaedic Center of Vero Beach is located at 1285 36th St., Suite 100 in Vero Beach. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, call the office at (772) 778-2009, toll-free at (866) 778-2009, or go online to www.orthocentervb.com.

A hallmark of Dr. M asseys presidency is his intense commitment to community needs, building numerous collaborative partnerships at the local, state and national level to foster economic and workforce development, said Wer ner Bols, chairman of the IRSC District Board of Tr ustees. Under his leadership, IRSC has become a nationally respected, highperforming institution with far-reaching benefits for the Tr easure Coast and our students. In recognition of Dr. M asseys many contributions, dedication to excellence and world-class r esults, the IRSC Board commends and congratulates him for receiving this welldeserved national honor. Dr Massey was appointed IRSCs third president and CEO in 1988, and his tenure in office has been marked by a legacy of exceptional accomplishments. Examples include: Expanding enrollment by 300 percent in more than 100 Degree and Certificate programs. Significantly expanding the Colleges five campuses to include over 700 acres and 1,500,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities.

Massey The lineup includes the GEICO Skytypers Airshow T eam, Tin Stixx, Jet truck driver Chris Darnell, Greg K oontz and the Alabama boys, Matt Younkin, Quicksilver, Scott Scooter Yoak and Christ Darnell. The GEICO Skytypers are a six-aircraft squadron, using vingtage SNJ-2 WWII aircraft. The will write giant billboard letters in the sky that can be seen for 15 miles. The various other acts of tight passes, head on sequences, aerial loops, tumbles and low flying ribbon cutting is only a portion of the agenda. T odd Howder, president of the Vero Beach Air Show, has been a part of getting this show off the ground since the start. He fondly remembers the air shows of years past and volunteering while he was in high school. I was born and raised here, Mr. Howder said. We r eally wanted something family oriented and to get something going in the community. We think Vero B each is a very aviation enthusiastic community. He w ent on to mention that very few of the countys y outh knew of the history of the airport and its involvement in World War II as a navy base. Theyre losing history and bringing this air show back brings the aviation back to the forefront again, he said. Its time to get a whole new generation excited. In addition to the high flying stunts, the organizers hope to raise money for local charities that reach the skies. V ero Beach Air Show is a nonprofit, he said. Everyone putting this together has put in lots of time and effort. This has been a total dedication to make this happen. All proceeds will go to the I ndian River County Ex change Club, Treasure C oast Exchange Club, Vero B each Exchange Club and the Indian River County Veterans Council. Those organizations filter down to help organizations such as CASTLE and Youth G uidance. W ith such a big undertaking, the air show is calling for volunteers. F or those interested, there will be a meeting Saturday, Aug. 24 at the Sunjet H anger at the Vero Beach M unicipal Airport, 3400 Cherokee Drive, Vero Beach, at 10 a.m. There will be various opportunities for volunteers for helping with parking, manning the food trucks, merchandise tents and hospitality volunteers, he said. We will also have floaters for various times through the event. S ponsorship opportunities will exist until the day of the event, Mr. Howder said. A second air show has been set for the May 10 and 11 and will feature the U.S. N avy Blue Angels. These guys are the top dogs of what they do, Mr. How der said. Having something like that in your back yard, you can see and do the math of what kind of groups you think would attend. F or the October show, Mr. How der expects 30,000 attendees and hopes to triple that for the May show.

hurdles to jump since its creation, but met each obstacle head on. The costs to the nonprofit we re staggering for repairs that exceeded $30,000 the first year, a leaky roof in the second year and the ongoing r eplacement of the kennels. S pace was also an issue with the shelter. The demand caused a waiting list for the shelter to bring in animals. W ith help from the community, fundraisers and local businesses, all repairs have been taken care of, with the exception of the kennels which is a work in progress. W e have replaced 20, but we still have 60 more to go, Ms. Petrone said. We started with the worst ones and have kept going. Their biggest hurdle happened during 2013 when the shelter was handed a $14,000 vet bill that needed immediate payment. I t was a rush to pay off in a months time, Ms. Petrone said. Luckily, because of the media, fundraisers and community, we were able to pay it off. Weve now developed a medical emergency fund and fundraisers for that fund to keep it in the positive. Our medical expenses average $150,000 a year. S he said that 90 percent of the animals who come into the shelter are strays. In the past few months, every animal rescued from F ellsmere has been heartworm positive. O ne treatment for heartworm can run $2,000 to $3,000, she said. These costs are supplemented by the shelters grooming, boarding, pest control and boutique services. Ms. Petrones ultimate goal is to make Indian River C ounty a no-kill county by the time she retires. I really think there is a lot of love in this community, she said. I cant even tell you the amount of love and support Ive gotten here. The county takes in about 6,000 animals a year. If Im taking in 1,500 of those animals, in the future, we can hopefully work together to make it no kill and we wouldnt have to euthanize animals for things that are treatable. It just takes the space and finances. That would be my perfect future. F or more information on H.A.L.O.,call (772)589-PAWS (7297) or visit www.HALORescueFL.org.

Dear Welfare RanterI am not the one who labeled you that but it suits you. You have not done your research. Many people are on welfare because the government put them there. Yes! It's the government's fault. Take this: Our court system. Family law judges are protecting deadbeats and not the children even when there is solid evidence. I have taken my ex to court 12 times in six years. He ow es over $110,000. I usually win but he only has to pay anywhere between $3,000$0. It is cheaper to purge than to pay child support. The last time I took him to court I had a detective and his sworn investigation which revealed a business and thousands in income. I also produced 30 copies of checks written out to the deadbeat with his endorsement on the back. G uess what the judge said? "Not enough!" Did you know (no, y ou didn't do your research) that in 2010 in just the state of F lorida alone, deadbeats owed over 6 trillion dollars...more than the richest man(Bill Gates) in the world! And that is just one state out of 50. Her e's another thing: the government has allowed hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies to price-gouge patients into debt and homelessness. One can of Dermaplast from the drugstore cost $8 yet on the hospital bill I was charged $50. And the hospitals will not allow you to bring in your own drugs-preventing you from being a good steward. And how about this: the government did not do their job in monitoring the banking and mortgage industry before we fell into a bad recession, (the government is more interested in listening to our phone calls apparently), and this too caused many to lose their jobs and homes and go on welfare. How about these big employers who are cutting the hours if full-timers to part time so they pay less out and drop benefits? And another...all those illegals taking up what few jobs left in this recession instead of employing Americans. Lets not forget about our dear president himself. He preached he would lower the national debt, but now it is doubled! He promised new jobs with the so-called stimulus money. D idn't work. He bailed out banks(with taxpayer money) who then turnaround and partied on that money and charged us outrageous new fees for stupid things...all of this hurts everyone who's trying to make ends meet and when we dont we need food stamps and Medicaid. It appears to me that you were not affected by the recession or anything of the above. Maybe you are rich and live a very sheltered life unaware of everything that is happening with our country, the president, and the people. Welfare ranter, I hope I opened your eyes but I doubt it. T eachers unions?This is in response to the reader who sent in the rant last w eek titled "What happened to teaching?" I have to question where that reader is from. They couldn't possibly reside in St. Lucie County and come to the conclusions they have drawn. In the opposite of that reader, I still think teaching is a revered profession and I have a high level of appreciation and respect for all the teachers I know. As far as attributing the demise to the teachers' unions with a powerful force... well, frankly that is just misinformation. Unions are not even allowed in Florida for teachers. What they have may be dubbed a "union" but in essence it is not much more than a bargaining unit with little if any power at all. And I say that with no disrespect to them. They do the best they can up against a powerful school board and an ov erbearing, overrated, overpaid, and overstaffed administration who in my opinion may say they always have the best interest of the student in mind but clearly don't. The comment to pay scale increases is at most laughable since the teachers I know, at least the ones in St. Lucie County, went the last five y ears without any pay increases and have even been asked to take pay cuts. The only part of the rant at all that I agree with is that the kids are getting lost in the shuffle. But the ones responsible for that are the administrators and politicians, not the teachers. Most teachers across the United States remain underpaid, and are r outinely thrown under the bus and used as scapegoats for our problems with education. Teachers are in the profession because they want to educate our children and are dedicated to help them to succeed in this world. Their desire to teach has not been diminished by the constant red tape; pay cuts, and badgering of administrators and politicians. They remain committed and will continue to fight for what is best for their students. My hat goes off to every teacher and they have my highest respect for the hard work they do under the guidelines they are expected to perform under and the unnecessary hoops they are made to jump through. For the record, I am not a teacher.A note to who violated our privacy If you were hungry and came to my door I would have given y ou food. Instead you chose to take sentimental items from deceased friends and items from our sons serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are in our 70s; if your parents we re violated would you not care? Do something better with y our lives. Exonerate yourselves and return items (make your parents proud). Remember, you can run but you can't hide. God sees all!Sunpass causes unemployment?If you buy and use "Sunpass" you are contributing to a toll collector losing their job and having to go on unemployment and maybe even on some other government assistance such as housing subsidies, food stamps, etc. The statement above is an absolute fact. It has already caused many collectors to lose their full time jobs.Do somethingWhen you sit and look at any local causeway or Hutchinson I sland at night, it is breathtaking the reflections of the lights on the water, hearing the sounds of fish jumping and birds diving but In the day time we have a different story that makes my heart bleed. Imagine being lucky enough to grow in Martin County and having the opportunity to be able to water ski, fish, swim, paddle board, surf, etc To be able to sit on the river and watch children play and watch people throw a stick in the water for their dogs to go fetch. After all thats what Martin County is all about, the quality of life, good clean fun and family activities, to help maintain that quality of life we have become accustomed to A wonderful area for tourism due to the wonderful beaches, parks on the water, restaurants on the water and the ability to be able to approach it all by water. Many families rely on clean water in Martin County, due to owning any business that sells or rents anything from sailboats and paddle boards to fishing tackle, bait and surf boards or a restaurant on the water. An area where it would not be Sunday if there were not a thousand boats hanging out on the Sandbar, swimming, grilling and just hanging out with friends and family. It is like taking a mini vacation in your own back yard. Lets not forget Labor D ay the last weekend before the chaotic holidays begin fun in the sun and water everywhere. The draining of Lake Okeechobee will mean total devastation for the entire Treasure C oast. Local business owners will cease to exist therefore their homes will go into foreclosure, causing a trickledown effect. Creating many abandoned establishments. T ourism will cease to exist. Why would you go somewhere in Florida that you could not rent or buy any gear necessary for water sports and not be able to swim or even enter the water ways. What will become of this beautiful community full of great people? Please we all need to do what we can to help, for the future of our children and of our community? Regarding Kaitlyn HuntI just read an article regarding Kaitlyn Hunt. Heres something Id like to know Why didnt the 14 year olds mother get involved before she waited for the other turned 18? Why did she wait? Sounds like she just wanted to be vindictive and now the government wants blood out of this. Now, I looked up y oung teenage pregnancy and was startled by the age; anywhere from 14 16 yrs. old and when these young women get pregnant, where are these parents and the government? Most of them run off to the welfare office and start that domino effect rolling. Now, why isnt the paper filled with the guys and women who are involved in this sexual misconduct in the paper? Thats wrong too but the government doesnt say anything about that, other than cutting a check to the young mother to help support her and however many kids she has. J ust so they can keep their political careers going at the expense of the tax payer. Oh, by the way those kids having kids, the funds to help pay for them come right out of the honest tax payers pocket. And lets not forget about any family foundation as well which leads to crime. Everything in life has consequences. Editors note: A ccording to the original arrest affadavit,it states that Kaitlyn Hunt started dating the victim November, 2012.Her 18th birthday was in August,2012.About immigrationDo folks realize that this country lets in more than one million people a year through legal immigration, and that there are about four million people in line waiting their turn to get in? That doesn't sound like a broken immigration system to me, but rather like one that is quite robust. 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. Most of the time, when I get calls for computer help I can usually figure out how to fix things out instinctively. Why? W ell because I examine the contents of the different menus looking for the option that will most likely get me closer to my goal (while keeping in mind whatever it is Im trying to do). As an added bonus, just about every program out there that has pull down menus have Help listed as the last one to the right. So, by the time I get to the last pull down menu I can always open that programs help file and do a search on what Im trying to do. The help file will then list all the topics that contain whatever words I searched on and from there I can usually figure out how to take the next step. Lets take a look at this in an example. Lets say Im writing my column with a typical word processing program and I wanted to make the next line that I type bold and larger. Lets also say that I only have a very basic understanding of computers. At this point I have two choices, I can stare at the screen with a blank expression and then call Bob (whos pretty good with computers) and ask him or, I can start looking around the screen for something that may help me r each my goal. As I move my mouse (and my eyes!) around the screen I notice a couple of things; first at the top of the screen, above where the words are being typed, there are (usually) rows pull down menus and buttons available. And, as I move my mouse slowly over the buttons, little boxes pop up telling me what each button does. When I click on the F ile option it opens (or pulls down) and I can see all of the commands that are available that have to do with F iling. As I move my mouse to the right, the File pull down menu closes and the E dit menu opens displaying all of the commands available for editing. N ext the View pull down menu opens and then the In sert menu opens. As each menu opens I look at all the options available and for each one I ask myself, Does this option look like it will help me change my text to bold and larger? And as each menu does not present an option I go on to the next one eventually getting to the F ormat pull down menu. When Format opens, I see it lists Bullets and numbering Borders and shading and whats this? Font?? Hmmm. Let me think Im trying to change the formatting of my text and text is made up of fonts, Thinking I may be on the r ight track, I click the Fonts option and a screen opens that allows me to change the characteristics of the type. B ingo! Exactly what I am looking for! It says I am typing in Times New Roman, R egular, Size 12. I change the specs to Times New Roman, B old, Size 14, click OK and voila! My typing is now larger and darker. O k, so, that rather tame demonstration is just an example of how intuitive computing works; at no time did I ever get the urge to go get a book or call tech support for help, I kept in mind what I was trying to do and, after seeing what options were available, discovered the answer on my o wn. Instinctively. Now, I know what a lot of y ou are thinking; that the things you have trouble doing are far more complex than just changing the characteristics of text, how can this possibly help me? And to that I answer the lesson is not in how to change the font size, the lesson is where to go for your answers! N otice that the pull down menus I looked at were all within the program I was using. You should look at the menus and options available within the program where y ou are stuck. Also notice that each pull down menu is a category; all filing options are under File and we found our Font options under the Format pull down menu. That was no coincidence. I would have been very surprised to findKnow where to look for answers COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Wor king out, helping others feel fit and gaining a gym family were only some of the perks of purchasing the gym in 2003. I t s been great, Ive learned a lot, said Ms. S anders. Its such a small hometown gym. Everyone knows everyone. U nder Ms. Sanders, the gym has flourished and become a go-to center for fitness needs and classes for area gym-goers. O ur pricing is super competitive, Ms. Sanders said. I t is all inclusive meaning there are no extra charges for any of the classes. It even includes daycare and that is not offered locally by a lot of gyms. Their memberships range in price by the length of the contract, but the VIP Gold membership includes use of the equipment, fitness assessments, programs, circuit classes, weight training, group cycling, yoga and a var iety of aerobic classes, as with the regular VIP memberships but the Gold has more. The Gold membership has unlimited use of the tanning bed and a complimentary towel with every visit. There are over 50 classes offered every week, both morning and evenings. Z umba is popular right now at our club, Ms. S anders said. Honestly, all of our classes have a good turn out and a loyal following. Each class attendance rang es from five to 30 people. If interested in joining the gym, dress appropriately and come prepared. (They) need to wear athletic shoes, a towel and you can bring a water or we sell water and other drinks as w ell, Ms. Sanders said. N umber one (thing) is a good attitude. S ebastian Gym is open 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and S unday. F or more information,call (772) 388-4916 or visit www.sebastiangym.com.

S till, there is more need and in different aspects. In Indian River County there is a large concern about accessing funding for houses and there is no temporary transient housing, Ms. Roberts said. There is no shelter for single people, she said. It is a family shelter and you have to have a family to stay there. There are also other areas including finding jobs, job training and as a community we need to come together to help r esolve these issues. The symposium will be organized in a three-fold focus. First is to identify the current services available, second to identify needs and third to pinpoint the gaps in services.

S onnys Roast Beef and S eafood opened in May and has already developed a consistent clientele of fans from Boston and all over M assachusetts who crave the authentic food of their hometowns. F or those who have never experienced authentic New England style cuisine, S onnys is a treat. Owned by Severio Sonny R aponi and Carol Lewis, the r estaurant not only brings its family style charm, but a lifetime of experience. After working as an executive chef at Hilltop Steak H ouse, a historic restaurant in Massachusetts, Sonny packed up and retired to the sunshine state. Then, like many retirees, he grew bored and decided to open up his own restaur ant. The duo, with help from family and employees who are like family, greet each customer as they welcome them into their homeyr estaurant. Their attention to detail, r emembering customers names, previous orders and even where theyre from makes the dining experience more like eating a big dinner with family. And when I say a big dinner, I mean it. If you dont bring your appetite, you havent come prepared. We sipped on bottled tea while we tried our starter dish of New England clam chowder or chowdah for those from Boston. The creamy combination of flavors was a delight to the taste buds and a plentiful amount of clams. My companion, who hails from Lynn, Mass., was particularly after the roast beef sandwiches when we arrived. S onny served us up both r oast beef and hamburger sliders. The immediate freshness of the meat, the flavor, the preparation of both was incredible. Bur gers everywhere should taste like this. Roast beef never tasted so good. A quick glance around S onnys kitchen proves why: he has no freezers. W ithout the meat ever being frozen, the flavors stay true to the cut, and you can tell the wealth of the quality in every last bite. N ext was the Captain S onnys Platter. This dishs price may look intimidating, but it is anything but. G ather your friends; youll need a few to tackle this monstrous meal. This piled high basket has everything for every fish and seafood lover. The bottom of the plate is lined with French fries, cut from potatoes through a slicer that same morning, as S onny believes freshness is the key. It is then topped with large pieces of fried haddock. Piled on that are fried pieces of calamari, clam strips, shrimp, oysters and scallops. There is more The wonder of this dish is the incredibly large amount of whole-bellied clams. These, without a doubt, are what people travel around for to get. On top of all that are freshly sliced onion rings. The batter is nice and light, making way for the freshness of the seafood. In true summer style, we finished off our meal with a slice of watermelon. B etween my companion and me, we were unable to fully finish the Captain S onnys Platter, and had to bring it home with us and we ate it for the next two days. Ms. Lewis boxed up everything for us and sent us on our way with our bellies full and looking forward to leftov ers.

Skim board event to raise money for lifeguards, childrens hospitalINDIAN RIVER COUNTY When visiting the beach, there is comfort knowing that if the waves get too strong or the undertow takes over, a lifeguard is nearby, watching carefully, and waiting to help. U nfortunately, due to an already stressed budget, there was a threat that lifeguards across the beaches would decrease leaving ocean-lovers alone on the sandy shore. One group has decided that the risk of not having trained lifeguards on the beaches far outweighs the benefits, and is doing their part to help costs associated with maintaining their presence. E pic-Sessions Surf, Skim and Paddle school has teamed up with Mulligans in Vero Beach to present the sixth annual Skim Jam. The event will take place on Aug. 31 on the beach in front of M ulligans from 9 a.m. 4 p .m. In y ears past, the event has raised money for St. J udes Childrens Hospital.

beneficiary, with St. Judes r eceiving 10 percent of the proceeds. W e usually have a great turnout due to the fact it is at the beach on Labor Day w eekend, said Chris Ellison, owner of Epic-Sessions. E very year we have around 7075 people that enter the contest and hundreds of onlookers. This year we have also added a pro division, which will be bring in professional skim boarders from all over the state. There will be four divisions in addition to the pro division. The divisions are divided by ability, not age. Par ticipants are judged on creativity, wave selection, tricks performed on the way to the wave, on the wave and on the way back from the wave. The top four contestants in each division will win a trophy and prize pack. All contestants will receive a T -shirt and complimentary lunch from Mulligans. Those who go to watch the event can participate in a raffle which will include prizes from local businesses, gift certificates, photogr aphy packages, surf, skim and paddleboard rentals and other goodies. This is really a great cause, Mr. Ellison said. If we lose out lifeguards, the beaches wont be a safe attraction to tourists. If we start to lose tourists, the already struggling economy will suffer further. This is a great way to help keep the lifeguards on the beach and also help the children at St. J udes.

Your chance to become a hero to those who defend our freedom and their families comes over Labor Day weekend. Ev ery day, the men and women of our armed forces put their lives on the line so that we can safely enjoy our swimming pools, cookouts, sports and time with our loved ones. When it is time for them to come home, many return bearing the scars of combat and service. O thers come home in a flagdraped coffin. P atriot Golf Day is about these fine men and women. S hould you tee it up over the holiday weekend, please do so at a participating course. Proceeds from your r ounds will go to the families of those who have been injured or killed defending our great nation. To fully appreciate Patriot Golf Days mission, its important for you to know how it came to be. Br ad and Brock Bucklin, twins born in Grand Rapids, M ich., were part of a family of five sons of Duane Duane "Buck" and Dawn Bucklin. The boys grew up to become fine young men. Tr ying to find direction in his life, Brock followed his brother into the military, enlisting a year after his brother in August of 2004. In the military Brock found his way and told his father that he planned to enter Officer Tr aining School and make the Army his career. Br ock was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 68th Armor R egiment, 3rd Heavy Br igade Combat Team, and 4th Infantry Division of Fort C arson, Colorado. In D ecember 2005, he was called to service in Iraq. On May 31, 2006, 28-yearold Corporal Brock Bucklin was the "acting mayor" of For ward Operating Base GABE, on the outskirts of B aqubah, 40 miles northeast of Baghdad. Just as a mayor of a town is the point person, the "mayor" of FOB GABE was the "go-to" guy when soldiers had problems or needs. Br ock's duty was to coordinate and manage the independent contractors and support resources to address those needs. On that day, he was assigned to assist a contractor in identifying equipment for transport. The civilian contractors we re responsible for moving concrete barriers, the largest 12-feet long, six-feet high and four feet wide. Each barrier weighs as much as 10 tons and while they were moving them onto trailers one of the trucks became stuck. A cargo chain was attached between the truck and another to pull it out. As the workers stood off to the side, the chain snapped and a broken link found Brock, slicing an artery in his neck. M edics arrived and provided treatment to Brock. E ighteen minutes later, a MEDEVAC helicopter transported him to LSA Anaconda Air Force Hospital. A half-hour later Brock B ucklin, having served only 22 months, had died. I t is a tragedy when a son or daughter dies before you. I t's unnatural. It's the thing that's unacceptable and most troubling, said his father, Buck. Br ad, stationed in Germany, was allowed to accompany his brothers coffin home to Grand R apids. Then-Captain Dan R ooney, a PGA Professional from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, and member of the O klahoma Air National G uard, was on that same flight as it carried home the body of Corporal Bucklin. The plane landed at 11:35 p .m., and Rooney watched through the planes window as the Bucklins awaited Brad and the coffin of their late son. Brock's son, Jacob, was clinging to the leg of his mother. The pilot had requested that passengers remain in their seats until the remains of the fallen hero could be transferred to his family. R ooney looked up and saw that half of the passengers had left the plane. In that moment, Rooney was inspired to give back to the families of fallen heroes. A little over a year after Br ock's funeral, Rooney called Buck, letting him know that his son, along with all the families of those who had perished or became disabled in the line of duty, would not be forgotten. "I am an ordinary person that has been blessed with the extraordinary opportunity to be the flight leader on the Patriot Golf Day mission," says Rooney. "I simply planted a small seed which has been cultivated by PGA Pr ofessionals and great citizens around the United S tates." Br ock Bucklin's son Jacob, now 10, is the recipient of a scholarship generated from R ooney's vision for honoring the fallen heroes The Folds of Honor Foundation, and its largest fundraiser, Patriot Golf Day. "It was good to know that something good came from this," said Buck. "There are a lot of other sons and daughters who did not come home." N ever could I imagine what it was that Dan Rooney wanted to do, continued B uck. But I know that my son would be extremely proud." If yo u d like to be a hero and honor the memories of our fallen heroes, please do so over this Labor Day w eekend by playing at a participating course.

When he began putting together the concept for his film about Florida, he r ecalled the suite by Mr. D elius and organized his film to fit the ebb and flow of the music. The story presented in the film is personal, telling the story of Mr. Johnsons father, retired attorney Andrew Graham who lives a simple life in a Brevard grove. The idea for The Florida S uite came about after my father built a small log cabin in the middle of his 12-acre citrus grove, located near the headwaters of the Indian River on Florida's central east coast, Mr. J ohnson said. N ot long after moving in, he brought my grandmother to live with him. S he was beginning to show signs of Alzheimer's disease and he believed it would be better for her to live in the beautiful and safe environment of the grove, rather than an assisted living facility. Observing his act of sacrifice and their life in the grove, I was moved to tell this story, he said. The similarities of the nurturing capable by nature and man are visually explored in the film; impacting the viewer in a different way than if the two parts were separated. The Space Coast Symphonys live performance of Mr. Delius suite will accompany the film, and may be the first time the music has been performed on the Treasure Coast by a live symphony, Mr. Johnson said.

The surf fest, founded by twin brothers Rich and Phil S alick, was started as a way to raise funds to fight kidney disease and help dialysis patients. The brothers shared a love of the ocean and were professional surfers. Rich Salick was 23 years old when he was diagnosed with IGA N ephropathy/Glomerulonephritis, a disease that breaks down the filtering units in the kidneys. He immediately began dialysis, which Mr. Salick received eight hours a day, three days a week. In S eptember 1974, Phil S alick happily donated one of his kidneys to his twin. While the transplant was successful, Mr. Salick was told that surfing again would be too dangerous. W ith a lot of luck and an amazing support system, Mr. Salick was soon back in his beloved ocean, surfing in competitions and spending his last years on earth doing what he loved. A tragic event for his family, friends and the surfing community, Rich Salick died away on July 2, 2012, while undergoing emergency surgery. The 27th annual event was renamed in Richs honor. The NKF was created as a fundraiser for other kidney patients, who have been struck with the disease, said Savanna Pitard, special events coordinator for the NKF of Florida. Phil and Rich personally delivered the money they raised to those in need in a brown paper bag. B each lovers and surfers alike are encouraged to attend the free NFK Rich S alick Pro-Am Surf Fest for a w eek full of entertainment and awesome surfing. Pr ofits raised from the surf Pr o-Am will be donated to help the fight against kidney disease. The number of people, who attend the NKF surf fest, vary each year based on w eather and swell conditions, but averages at more than 50,000 people, Ms. Pitard said. We typically have over 500 surfers competing. Pr ofessional and amateur surfers will hit the waves on S aturday, Aug. 31. Competitions include the Ron Jon Me n s Pro, the Alison Moses W omens Pro, Anarchy Eyew ear Junior Mens Pro, Steve C asanova Men and Womens Pr o Longboard. There will also be a tandem surf competition, as well as a familyfriendly swimsuit competition. W e have had several big names in surfing come out to the event in the past, including Kelly Slater, the H obgood and Lopez brothers and many more, Ms. Pitard added. But this is determined on the wave conditions for the weekend, as well as if these guys are out on tour. In addition to a wide r ange of events, the Taste of Br evard and a silent auction will be held on Sunday, Sept. 1 at the Hilton in Cocoa B each. This year, we will be r olling out a scholarship fund, where applicants can apply and will be selected by a board of representatives that have been part of the event and close with Rich, Ms. Pitard said. Applicants will be chosen based on several different criteria, including grade point average, community service and character. Ms. Pitard added that there will be several awards in honor of Rich that will be given out to volunteers, who clearly exemplify the good will that he displayed. P eople should attend the NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am Su rf F est to watch world class surfing, enjoy a beautiful day on the beach, listen to daily, live music, enter to win raffles and giveaways, get a free lesson from Ron Jo n School of Surf, watch and participate in tandem surf demos and to support the NKF, Ms. Pitard said. I t s truly a fantastic event, with things to do for all ages and all types of people.
