Natural gas coming to SebastianSEBASTIAN A unanimous vote by the Sebastian City Council will further fuel talks with a natural gas company bringing services to S ebastian. Du r ing the Jan. 8 meeting, the council voted 4-0 in favor of offering a nonexclusive natural gas franchise to Florida City Gas. The ordinance will come back before council in F ebruary before it is official, city staff said. C ouncilman Jim Hill was not present at the meeting. F lorida City Gas currently is working to bring natural gas to other parts of the area, including Fe llsmere, portions of Indian River C ounty and Vero Beach, so adding S ebastian to the list will be bring the city onto the same playing field economically, some council members said. Na tural gas is a highly sought after and historically lower cost form of energy, said representatives of Florida City Gas. The proposed gas lines will be laid on portions of County Road 512 and I ndian River Drive, and will be available to residential and commercial customers. The plans show the lines will be available to at least 54 existing business addresses, mostly made up of restaur ants, but also includes places like S ebastian Elementary School, Indian River Fire Rescue and Sebastian River M edical Center. A company spokesman said the lines are expected to be fully installed and r eady for service by the end of 2014. I nterim City Manager Joe Griffin told council members conversations about bringing natural gas to the city go back more than two years.

Last week, Jan. 9 was proclaimed as Paul Kroegel D ay by Sebastian Mayor B ob McPartlan during the inaugural Pioneer Festival organized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in honor of Mr. Kroegel's 150th birthday. A bout 100 people passed through the tent during the event, tasting "pioneer" food, listening to rollicking banjo tunes and learning more about the Pelican I sland National Wildlife R efuge, the lagoon and land area Mr. Kroegel worked hard to protect more than 100 years ago. "A ducky day isn't going to dampen our spirits," said Mr. Lowry, event organizer and visitor services manager of the Pelican Island N ational Wildlife Refuge. Mr. Kroegel, a German immigrant who moved to S ebastian in the late 1880s, literally took a stand against poachers that targeted nesting birds that lived on spoil islands in the Indian River Lagoon, including pelicans. Mr. Kroegel would row across the lagoon to an island near his home where brown pelicans would nest and stand guard with a shotgun against people coming to shoot the birds and sell their feathers to milliners for hat decorations. In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt declared one of those islands, Pelican Island, the first national wildlife r efuge, and today there are more than 550 refuges inBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com See KROEGEL, A3 Cold weather shelter has first opening of 2014VERO BEACH The first blast of cold, wintery w eather blew through Indian River County early last w eek and about 30 homeless individuals sought r efuge at the county's temporary cold weather shelter. While Florida may be the one of the warmest places in the U.S., temperatures took a dive on Jan. 6 and The Source in Vero Beach, I ndian River County's designated cold weather shelter, opened its doors and passed out blankets, food, jackets and hot chocolate to local homeless, and provided them with the option for a warm place to sleep ov ernight. B lankets and warm socks are two items the nonprofit could really use during this time of year to give to needy men and women, and donations are always welcomed, staff said. D ennis Bartholomew, executive director of The S ource, said the facility can accommodate up to 60 people overnight, and during last week's coldest night they were half full. "A lot of the guys choose to hunker down and get settled in their sleeping bags even when it's very cold because they don't want to leave their possessions," Mr. Bartholomew said. The nonprofit organization stays in communication with the county emergency services department to know when the weather is predicted to be particularly cold. The Source is opened when the temperatures are forecasted to drop below 35 degrees and dry, or 40 degrees and rainy, Mr. Ba r tholomew said. "I t doesn't usually come on us really fast, we usually have a couple of days notice," he said. The cold front was definitely making news, so much so that people from the community were checking to see if the nonprofit was getting prepared. "I was getting calls from everyone, even the police department, to find out if we we re going to be open," Mr. Bartholomew said.

This work is anticipated to take three months to complete. Du r ing the bridge painting, traffic shifts will occur on Orange Avenue, starting with the westbound lanes and then moving to the eastbound lanes. At times traffic will be reduced from two lanes to one lane on Orange Avenue, and a flag crew will be in place around-the-clock to facilitate the one-lane traffic. To alert motorists of the change, variable message sign boards and orange warning signs will be placed in advance of the traffic shift and lane reduction. The I-95/Orange Avenue (SR 68) overpass bridge painting is part of the $78.3 million I-95 widening project, from Okeechobee Road (SR 70/Exit 129) to Indrio R oad (SR 614/Exit 138).

The Education Foundation of Indian River County will present the 22nd annual I ndian River Regional Science and Engineering Fair at G ifford Middle School on Feb. 1. All of the participating students are ready to present their projects, but the nonprofit is still looking for more volunteer judges to evaluate the students' work, event coordinators said. There are an estimated 560 students participating in the fair this year, and 300 of those students will be kindergarten through the fifth grade, the age group with the most need for judges. J udges for the elementary school category need to have an understanding of the scientific method and the ability to hear soft voices, said Cynthia Falardeau, executive director of the E ducation Foundation of I ndian River County. It may seem a strange r equest, but when an entire building is full of kids and judges talking about the projects on display, it can be difficult to hear and follow conversations, she said. "I t' s a big deal," Ms. F alardeau said. When talking to the children, judges will need to evaluate what the child has learned in doing the project and how well they understood their outcomes. One misconception that many people have about the fair is that science fairs are demonstrations, and they think about an erupting model volcano, but in actuality, science and engineering projects, especially at the early elementary level, are more about measuringBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com File photoThe Education Foundation of Indian River County held the 21st Annual Science Fair in F ebruary at Gifford Middle School.

S ome of Mr. Kroegel's descendants, including his granddaughter Janice Kroegel Timinsky of Sebastian were present at the event, as were members of another old Sebastian family, the Semblers. M embers of the Sembler family could be seen going back and forth between the grill and the food tables making sure everyone had plenty of food to taste. The food items consisted of some of the same food S ebastian pioneers would have gathered from the local land and waters, Ranger Lowry said. M enu items included oysters, clams, swamp cabbage soup, heart of palm salad, mullet, mullet roe and cornbread. Tr acy Garceau manned a food table, slicing up heart of palm, also called swamp cabbage, a vegetable harvested from the inner core of a cabbage palm, a widely available tree in Indian River County. "I like to eat it raw, but I heard someone say they like to cook it in bacon," Mr. Garceau said. B eekeeper Larry Bowles was on hand to educate festival participants about caring for bees and harvesting honey. "Y ou can't judge a honey by its color," Mr. Bowles said. B ees make honey using nectar from a wide variety of sources, and different sources create different colored and different tasting honey, he said. Pioneers certainly used honey as a food, but they found other ways to use what the bees created, including using beeswax to make candles. "N o wadays we use candle molds, but they would dip candles," Mr. Bowles said. In addition to the pioneer food and the proclamation, the celebration included a screening of a documentary about Mr. Kroegel, a birthday cake and cupcakes and a re-release of two brown pelicans into the wild by Busch Wildlife S anctuary.

Plan in motion for free city dog parkVERO BEACH Local canines could have a fenced-in "puppy-park" on property owned by the city of Vero Beach later this y ear. Ve ro B each City Manager J im O'Connor is working with a not-for-profit group, The Friends of the Vero B each Dog Exercise Area, to craft a lease for the area behind Bob Summers Field, and for it to be declared an official off-leash dog park. Du r ing the Jan. 7 Vero B each City Council meeting, the council members heard from many members of the public that were in favor of making the dog park official, including "Mr. M ack," a service dog that delivered signatures from 2,763 people who signed a petition in favor of an official dog park. Ma y or Dick Winger told Mr. O'Connor it was time for a dog park and he wanted it to move quickly. The timeline for an official opening is unclear. Mr. O'Connor will negotiate the lease with the "Friends" group and then send it to the city recreation commission for review and then it would return to council for a vote. B ob Joy, spokesman for the "Friends" group, said their idea for the area wouldn't be exclusive to just a dog park, but would be developed in a way that other uses could still occur, including leaving space for vehicular entrance in the fencing. Although some people have said having a dog park next to a marina, right on v aluable riverfront property is a bad long term decision for water quality or potential city revenue, Mr. Joy said the uniqueness of a dog park near boat docks is actually a plus. V isitors that come to Vero B each on their boats travel to many places along the coast and often comment on how nice it is to have a place for their pups to run about, and even those without dogs onboard enjoy walking over and talking with people and their pets in the park. Pr ior into delving into the meeting Councilwoman Pilar Turner pulled another item on the agenda relating to dogs in parks. The council moved to send a proposal on allowing dogs into certain city parks to the city's volunteer recreation commission for r eview and recommendation, before the council takes a vote on the matter.

While others were shopping and celebrating, Lalita J anke and other Camp Haven supporters continued to work hard to ensure Camp Ha ven will provide a place for homeless in Vero Beach to sleep safely each night in 2014. Ms. Janke says residents have no idea of the number of homeless who sleeps wherever they can. There are so many in need of a safe place to sleep and a second chance," Ms. Janke said from Camp Haven headquarters when she announced the 2014 kickoff of Camp Haven's extraordinary fundraising event on J an. 23. An elaborate ballroom evening of fine dining, dancing and entertainment in support of Camp Haven will be held at the Vero Beach Elks Club Crystal Ballroom with a r eception at 6 p.m. and dinner to follow at 7 p.m. This event is a very important fund raiser that is needed to ensure the success of C amp Haven's program, which will take homeless men off the streets and give them a chance at a new beginning," Ms. Janke said. The event will honor Richard Stark, an Indian River C ounty philanthropist, who is well known for his nonprofit work the past 15 years. "W e' re proud to honor Mr. S tark, a champion for the fight against homelessness," said Jim Beckley, board vice president. Mr. Stark continues his charitable work in his hometown by passionately supporting the highly anticipated Camp Haven Homeless S helter for men on U.S. 1 in Ve ro B each that is to receive its occupancy license any day now. C amp Haven is an Indian River County community project that provides supportive living opportunities and education to men committed to rising out of homelessness. Participants who are accepted into the Camp Ha ven program will go through a comprehensive evaluation process to assess whether they are willing to improve their lives and get back to work. The goal of Ca mp Haven is to help local men achieve self-sufficiency through counseling, training and encouragement r ebuilding their mind, body and spirit. "C amp Haven, a Vero B each nonprofit community project whose time has come, provides not only shelter and stability while r esidents rebuild their lives, but also provides professional counseling, job opportunities, hope and encouragement," said Louise Hubbard, board member.

"I look forward to where this is going to go," Mr. Griffin said. F lorida City Gas is owned by A GL Resources, the largest natural gas provider in the country, serving more than 4.5 million customers in seven states. In a previous interview with Hometown News, Mark S eagrave, market development manager for the company, said the demand for natural gas is the highest it has been in the 26 years he has been in the industry. W ith the discovery of methods to get natural gas from shale deposits, the U.S. has been able to increase its supply of natural gas, thereby lowering the cost to the consumer for the product. S hale is a sedimentary r ock with a variety of minerals, including clay. Shale gas is produced and found within shale rock formations. "It's a hedge against the r ising cost of electricity," Mr. S eagrave said. F or more information about city government meetings or to view meeting agendas,visit www.cityofsebastian.org.

They turned them in for deposit. M aine put back the bottle deposit several years ago. I thought kids would still be picking up the bottles on the beach and on the side of the road. Instead, early one morning, I saw seniors collecting bottles for returns. I had nothing but admiration for them. I do think that recycling is smarter than (having) deposits. Florida should require all disposable plastics and glass to be recycled. (There would be) no paper/plastic cartons of milk. No foil/paper snack drinks of juice. Allow only recyclable, materials on the grocers' shelf. I thought that all glass should be recycled, not just drinks, but mayonnaise and pickle jars, as well. As for someone taking recycled cans out of the trash, perhaps he was hard up. We were taught, "There, but for the grace of God, go I."Dogs aren't always welcomeI just wanted to rave about the nice arts and crafts show I w ent to last week. I just have a question for everybody out there: why do people bring dogs to an arts and crafts show? Do they think the dogs know about arts and crafts? I saw several people, some who even had dogs in a baby carriage. One person had two dogs on a leash. They bark and there's not much r oom. I am a pet owner and a pet lover, but I know my dogs do not like craft shows and people do like to look at your dogs, smell them or watch them whatever they're doing. U se some common sense, people.Anchor babies may subsidize increasing number of senior citizens in U.S.S ome countries have no anchor babies. A baby is only a citizen of the country in which he is born if his parents are citizens. Pe r haps someone did the math and figured out anchor babies will grow up to pay taxes and Social Security. Perhaps the base needed for increasing number of seniors who can only be supported with the influx of immigrants, legal or otherwise. Tr ue, their parents presently seem to be crippling the economy with their draw on the Social Security, educational, medical, welfare, legal and other services, but maybe it will balance out somewhere down the line. M aybe not. I am an English major, not a math major. When I was a kid...I walked back and forth from school four times a day, for more than 2 miles when I was a kid. No wadays, the busses stop every couple of blocks, while parents sit in the cars waiting with the kids. Isn't it a waste of taxpayer's money? With all these new sidewalks, can't the kids walk to the bus stops? No wonder Americans are so lazy. Bicyclists, stop taking up all the parking spacesWhy are bicyclists going everywhere in groups, and parking their vehicles in the very limited parking spaces there, then taking bicycles out of their cars and pedaling away? Then, they go biking for miles, and people trying to spend some time on the beach have to leave because there's no place to park. Pa rk ing is always a problem, but to park and then leave to go elsewhere is just wrong, shows total and complete lack of consideration for others and should be stopped immediately.Stop passing on double yellow linesT wice in the last month as I drove through my residential neighborhood, going the speed limit, I might add, I have had two vehicles pass me on the double yellow line. When has it become legal to pass on the double yellow? This is happening more and more and I am just appalled that someone can have such blatant disregard for the safety of others to save a few moments by speeding through a r esidential neighborhood. These are not small vehicles, either. If you see yourself in this letter, take a breath and take your foot off the gas and just relax. A few moments more to get where you are going won't kill you and just might save someone.Don't judgeI wish those who talk all about the people on food stamps would just shut up. They have no idea of what people go through or their situation. They complain about people buying food and then getting into a nice car or w earing nice jewelry. How can they be certain that the person shopping isn't shopping for somebody else? My daughter shops for me because I'm homebound. She has a decent vehicle and has a couple rings on her fingers. S he is by no means rich, but she doesn't "look" as though she's poor. She goes to the grocery store for me once a w eek to get me a few things. If somebody had the audacity to look at her or follow her out to the car to see what she was driving, I'd hope they would follow her to my house because I'd have a mouthful to give them. There's nobody on the face of the earth who has the right to judge someone based on what they drive or what they w ear. Those who do should be ashamed of themselves. Don't forget, one day you'll sit and be judged. T alking about teachersI'm friends with some local teachers. It's unbelievable that these are the same folks who sit inside a classroom and teach our kids. They have no use of proper English and are more judgmental and hypocritical than anybody I know. A teacher sounds offI'm a teacher and I'm sick of people thinking it's such an easy job. We deal with disrespectful kids and even worse, their disrespectful parents. They come to class because they have to, not because they want to. The parents make them show up because they will face jail time if they don't. Those certain few really ruin the teaching and learning experience for those who really want to be there. Something should be done to eradicate the schools of these nuisances. Got something to say?

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, JAN. 17, 2014 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Helping all sorts of animalsCliff Partlow /staff photographerIlka Daniels, Director of Protective Services at the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County, offers Squealy, one of three Vietnamese potbelly pigs up for adoption, a piece of apple recently. A generous benefactor adopted all three pigs along with one of the center's goats. Most of the people I work with are on a budget and trying to make every penny count. The vast majority of people who call me looking to upgrade their old machines are doing it on a fixed income and looking to either get their old machine fixed or replaced with as little out of pocket expense as possible. Usua lly money is a big issue and all they are trying to do is either get their old machine running the way it was or replace it with something that is capable of doing the same things they we re able to do with their old machine. When I wrote my column last week on getting a laptop over a desktop I wrote it with the cost factor in mind I wasn't thinking about the "power user" or people with cash to burn, I was thinking of the people who call me day after day who are thinking about r eplacing their old XP or V ista machine and are worried that a new machine will still be able to do what they were able to do on their old system. W ith new machines starting at around $300 these days computers are no longer the high end purchase that they were ten y ears ago. It is no longer necessary to go and spend $1,200 to $2,000 just to have a machine that will surf the we b, send and receive email and do the book keeping. Ev en video conferencing with programs like Skype (which is a pretty resource intensive task) is well within the capabilities of today's entry level $300 machines. And (as I wrote in my last column on the subject) a laptop even the entry level ones usually come with everything one needs to perform all of the basic tasks that nine out of 10 of the people who call me are trying to do. Right out of the box the entry level machine will run circles around the ancient XP machines and even some of the "newer" Vista machines that are out there. And with the price of a machine so much lower than it was 10 years ago, sinking money into an old sick machine doesn't make sense after a certain point like it does with a machine that cost five times as much. A $300 repair on a $1,500 machine is somewhat reasonable. A $300 r epair on a $300 computer? N ot so much. We live in an age where computers have become practically disposable. OK, so let's say you're one of the rare ones that call me and have money to burn and are you're also a "power user." You run graphic intensive programs like video editors or maybe yo u' re a serious gamer. Your r equirements are going to be much higher than the average user who just uses their machine for email and surfing the web. Once we get past the entry level requirements and stare getting into "p ow er user" territory, then things like upgrading components (like a new video card) and adequate cooling become much more of an issue. With a laptop, y ou really don't have the flexibility that you have with a desktop adding a high end video card for instance isn't going to happen and ru nning resource intensive programs (like some of the newer shoot-em-up games that are out now) aren't going to work as well as they will on a desktop. The desktop's larger size does allow for better cooling, component level repairs and better performance. B ut let's go back a step and look at the calls that I get on a daily basis. The person who calls me looking for advice on the purchase of a new machineUnless you're a power user,' you don't have to spend a lot on a new machine COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

TREASURE COAST Flu season is here and more and more people across the country are getting sick. The American Red Cross urges people to get vaccinated now and offers tips everyone can follow to help prevent the spread of the flu. The Centers for Disease C ontrol report, for the week of December 29 to January 4, shows 35 states are seeing widespread flu activity, up from 25 a week earlier.Steps to prevent the fluThe most important step someone can take is to get a flu vaccine. The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older. O ther steps people can take to help prevent the spread of the flu virus: 1. Stay home if sick. 2. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 3. Cover the nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, and throw the tissue away after use. If that's not possible, cough or sneeze into the elbow, not the hands. People with the flu can spread it to others about six feet away through coughs and sneezes. 4. Wash hands often, especially after coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand-rub. 5. Avoid touching the eyes, nose or mouth. "I f someone has the flu they should avoid contact with others as much as possible," said South Florida R egion Executive Rob Levine. "Everyone should also disinfect surfaces used commonly such as door knobs, switches, phones, computers and remote controls."Do I have the flu?The common signs of influenza are high fever, severe body aches, headache, being extremely tired, sore throat, cough, r unny or stuffy nose, and vomiting and/or diarrhea (more common in children). If someone thinks they have the flu, their healthcare provider should be consulted. Someone should seek medical care immediately if they develop any of the following symptoms: Fast breathing, trouble breathing or bluish skin color. Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen (adults). Confusion or sudden dizziness. Not drinking enough fluids, not being able to eat, or severe or persistent vomiting. Flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever and worse cough. Children not waking up, being so irritable that the child does not want to be held or not interacting. Fe ver with a rash. No tears when crying or significantly fewer wet diapers than normal.

The drive runs through J an. 24. There are two ways to help. 1. Drop off chocolate candy and Valentine cards at two locations: Eye Clinic of Ve ro and Optical Boutique, 634 21st Street, Vero Beach and the Veteran's Council's V ictory Center at the Indian River Mall. 2.

The Public Safety Institute at Eastern Florida State College is curr ently recruiting students for its 2014 Corrections Academy. The deadline to apply for the fulltime academy is Monday, Feb 3. The program, which will accept 2530 recruits, begins on Monday, Ma r ch 3, and is scheduled to run for approximately 13 weeks. "A career in corrections offers many challenges and rewards," said T onia Graham, public safety coordinator at the Public Safety Institute. "There are numerous promotional opportunities and specialized assignments available." Ms. Graham said that students wishing to apply must be at least 19 y ears of age, complete the Crimial J ustice Basic Abilities Test for Corr ections and have their fingerprinting completed with Brevard Police T esting. "T he Corrections Academy training is both physically and mentally demanding" she said. "(It) is a disciplined, paramilitary program, designed to prepare the student to work in the field of corrections, providing care, custody and supervision for incarcerated individuals." C orrections officers are responsible for overseeing individuals that have been arrested and are awaiting trial or who have been convicted of a crime and sentenced to serve time in a jail, a reformatory or a prison, Ms. Graham said. Officers maintain security and inmate accountability to prevent disturbances, assault and escapes. They maintain order within the institution and enforce rules and r egulations. S uccessful completion of the academy allows the student to sit for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement State Officer Certification Examination, which must be completed upon graduation. Ms. Graham said that candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible and work to meet all academy selection requirements. F or more information,visit www.easternflorida.edu.

These interesting plants are extremely tough and surprisingly easy to care for. These plants do not require a lot of light and can grow in many places where other plants will not easily thrive such as in a bathroom. The plant has only one basic need and that is water. The Lucky Bamboo is actually not a bamboo at all. I ts botanical name is known as Dracaena Sanderana. It is also known as the ribbon plant. M any Feng Shui master r ecommend this plant because the plant can create a space where you feel energized and less stressed. I personally have one in every room and it is one of my most favorite plants. I have them in several locations, one on the porch, another in the kitchen and y et another in my office. They do well in almost any lighting condition. When I feel stressed out from a hard day, I often just look at the plant and think and it almost always gives me a feeling of comfort. Y ou can purchase Lucy B amboo in a couple of different ways. Sometimes y ou can find them already potted in all flavors of decorative pots. You can also purchase them loose and buy your own vase or pot. If you use a vase to display your plant, simply keep the roots covered with water. If you choose to plant them in a small pot, buy some small stones or even marbles to place around the plant to give it stability. The r ocks also give the plant a nice decorator look. T aking care of Lucky B amboo is very simple and worry free. All you need is to keep the plant in clean water. It is a good idea to change the water once a w eek or so. If you have city water, let the water stand for 24hours before putting the plant in it so the chlorine has a chance to dissipate. Better yet, use distilled water. If you have a w ell, the water is perfectly safe as is. You can add a diluted water-soluble houseplant fertilizer but it is not necessary. N ot only can these plants bring joy to yourself but they also bring good cheer to others in the form of gifts. You can create your o wn themes for any occasion simply by using the appropriate container. You can then add ribbons, picks or any other type of small object to create something truly special that will be cherished for time to come. This week's garden tip: W ith the warm spring like w eather that is right around the corner, plant pests are sure to be eyeing your prized plants. One way to help ensure your insecticide stays where you spray it is to add a spreader sticker to your insecticide solution. A spreader sticker helps keep the spray on the plant and makes it harder for rain and your sprinklers to wash it off. This makes the solution more effective. A very inexpensive way to achieve this is to add a small amount of mild dish detergent or vegetable oil to y our bug juice before spraying. You should never spray your plants in the heat of the day as the solution can act like a small magnifying glass and cause the leaves to burn.

W ebsite: www.sunrisetheatre.com.FRIDAY, JAN. 31 SUNDAY, FEB. 2 "Late Nite Catechism" in the Black Box Theatre at Many of us would love to be members at a private club. Enjoying a great, wellmanicured course, a spiffy clubhouse complete with locker rooms, a dining r oom, bar and more would certainly make our golf times better. F or most of us, however, the price tag that goes along with that sort of membership leaves us on the outside of the gate looking longingly over the wall as someone else enjoys those benefits. Thanks to Golf Links of F lorida everyone may now experience that thrill without having to join a private club. In fact, by joining Golf Links of Florida, y ou get to enjoy outings at several private and semiprivate clubs instead of just one. Who would want to play the same course all the time anyway? GLOF was founded in 1998 by Valerie Scott as a way for people wishing to play private and semiprivate clubs to enjoy the experience without the hefty price tag of club membership. What was once a group of 10 golfers has grown to now number in the hundreds. T en years later, with V alerie winding down and r eady to retire, Vicky Wilson took over the reins and has r un GLOF since. The most fun for me is meeting the people that come to participate," said V icky. "I have a lot of fun setting up these events." While most would think that the logistics that go with putting together so many outings at so many private clubs, that is not the case. "G etting the word out about us has been the most challenging," Vicky stated. "E veryone is thrilled to hear about us when they do find out about us." While you don't have to pay the GLOF membership fee to participate in any of the group's events, those who do pay the $50 annual fee enjoy better prices for events, and other benefits. Y ou can join as a single or get your group of golf buddies to join with you. Ev ents are not set up with any particular type of play. This means you and your four-some, or the people y ou're paired with, can decide amongst yourselves what kind of event you want to play. Maybe you want to play a scramble or skins. Perhaps you and another golfer want to play a match just between the two of you. That's fine and certainly encouraged. It's entirely up to you. Best of all, the membership consists of a wide range of ages and skill levels allowing for everyone to have fun and compete, if they wish, against players with the same abilities. Each event is a shotgun start, allowing for everyone to start and finish at about the same time. This allows everyone to enjoy some food and beverages after their round as well as some good-natured boasting by those who played the best. There are even prizes to be won, including a 50/50 r affle. The social aspect of these outings has become as important as the golf itself. All of the members have made new friends at these outings and visiting with them has played a huge role in the success of GLOF. The schedule for 2014 is starting to shape up with the first event being held at At lantis Country Club on J an. 18. To date there are planned events at Westchester Country Club, Palm B each Par 3, PGA National R esort, Eastpoint Country Club, Breakers Ocean C ourse, Monarch Country Club, Boca Lago Country Club, Martin Downs, and B ear Lakes. More courses and dates will fill in over the next several weeks. The list of courses where GLOF has held an event since 1998 numbers well into the thirties. Some of the most desired clubs at which to tee it up are on this growing list. All the events take place on weekends, allowing us working stiffs the opportunity to enjoy them as well. In addition to golf outings, GLOF members have also gotten together for social events. Over the holidays the group met at iBar at the PGA National Resort for drinks, food and to talk about the year that was and the one upcoming. "W e had a great turnout," said Vicky. "Everyone had a great time, and it wasn't even golf!"

S ince the debut of his first album Southern Thang in 2007, he has been hard at work in the studio writing and recording a new album that promises to be well worth the wait. Summer 2012 brought the release of his highly anticipated second studio album Keep it C ountry. This album produced in Nashville by Joe Ca verlee, delivered more of the high energy music and performances that Tom J ackson fans have come to love and expect. The first single My Angel Loves the D evil Out of Me, also signifies the release of Tom's first ever full length music video produced by Rodolphe Pierre-Louis. His songwriting comes from the life he lives and speaks to the heart of his fans. H is songwriting comes from the life he lives and speaks to the heart of his fans.

The usual procedure is to check the weather in the area where we are going to fish. After we got the report, we had to change our plans. A "fog advisory" were the first words we heard, and from the looks of the area, it was going to be a slow r ide to Okeechobee. Going w est on Route 60 toward Y eehaw Junction, the fog got worse. We found a place to park, pulled out the coffee thermos poured a couple of cups and waited. After about an hour and half we started to see a break and that's all we needed. We put the boat in the water, now all we had to do was to find the channel to take us where we wanted to go. As we got closer to our fishing area, surprisingly, visibility got much better. Time wise, it was now almost 9 o'clock. As we we re putting on our lures for that first cast a thought came to mind; we were the only ones on this body of water along with the birds, gators and all of His creatures two human beings enjoying all of His doings. The sounds on a lake like Garcia early in the morning in those kind of conditions is something to behold. We fished for more than hour before the first bite, which was as a small bass. At about 10:30 we heard the first boat, then another and then the airboats started up taking their passengers to go see the gators. A bout 11:30 or so the bite started. Denny caught a couple of keeper fish, and then I caught a couple. We w ent to a new area and found some bigger ones and had some fun for about an hour. Our biggest was 6lbs.9oz. We caught probably a dozen or so from 15 to 25-inches. The fish were caught on a green pumpkin with red flake Senkos, green pumpkin fluke with blue flake and a Chug Bug. I'm glad we didn't go to O keechobee. We'll save that trip for next time. All the fish that were caught were re leased to swim again another day. It's good to know that someone else can enjoy the same thrill we did in catching those w eary Florida bass.

Natural gas coming to SebastianSEBASTIAN A unanimous vote by the Sebastian City Council will further fuel talks with a natural gas company bringing services to S ebastian. Dur ing the Jan. 8 meeting, the council voted 4-0 in favor of offering a nonexclusive natural gas franchise to Florida City Gas. The ordinance will come back before council in F ebruary before it is official, city staff said. C ouncilman Jim Hill was not present at the meeting. F lorida City Gas currently is working to bring natural gas to other parts of the area, including Fe llsmere, portions of Indian River C ounty and Vero Beach, so adding S ebastian to the list will be bring the city onto the same playing field economically, some council members said. Na tural gas is a highly sought after and historically lower cost form of energy, said representatives of Florida City Gas. The proposed gas lines will be laid on portions of County Road 512 and I ndian River Drive, and will be available to residential and commercial customers. The plans show the lines will be available to at least 54 existing business addresses, mostly made up of restaur ants, but also includes places like S ebastian Elementary School, Indian River Fire Rescue and Sebastian River M edical Center. A company spokesman said the lines are expected to be fully installed and r eady for service by the end of 2014. I nterim City Manager Joe Griffin told council members conversations about bringing natural gas to the city go back more than two years.

Last week, Jan. 9 was proclaimed as Paul Kroegel D ay by Sebastian Mayor B ob McPartlan during the inaugural Pioneer Festival organized by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in honor of Mr. Kroegels 150th birthday. A bout 100 people passed through the tent during the event, tasting pioneer food, listening to rollicking banjo tunes and learning more about the Pelican I sland National Wildlife R efuge, the lagoon and land area Mr. Kroegel worked hard to protect more than 100 years ago. A ducky day isnt going to dampen our spirits, said Mr. Lowry, event organizer and visitor services manager of the Pelican Island N ational Wildlife Refuge. Mr. Kroegel, a German immigrant who moved to S ebastian in the late 1880s, literally took a stand against poachers that targeted nesting birds that lived on spoil islands in the Indian River Lagoon, including pelicans. Mr. Kroegel would row across the lagoon to an island near his home where brown pelicans would nest and stand guard with a shotgun against people coming to shoot the birds and sell their feathers to milliners for hat decorations. In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt declared one of those islands, Pelican Island, the first national wildlife r efuge, and today there are more than 550 refuges inBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com See KROEGEL, A3 Cold weather shelter has first opening of 2014VERO BEACH The first blast of cold, wintery w eather blew through Indian River County early last w eek and about 30 homeless individuals sought r efuge at the countys temporary cold weather shelter. While Florida may be the one of the warmest places in the U.S., temperatures took a dive on Jan. 6 and The Source in Vero Beach, I ndian River Countys designated cold weather shelter, opened its doors and passed out blankets, food, jackets and hot chocolate to local homeless, and provided them with the option for a warm place to sleep ov ernight. B lankets and warm socks are two items the nonprofit could really use during this time of year to give to needy men and women, and donations are always welcomed, staff said. D ennis Bartholomew, executive director of The S ource, said the facility can accommodate up to 60 people overnight, and during last weeks coldest night they were half full. A lot of the guys choose to hunker down and get settled in their sleeping bags even when its very cold because they dont want to leave their possessions, Mr. Bartholomew said. The nonprofit organization stays in communication with the county emergency services department to know when the weather is predicted to be particularly cold. The Source is opened when the temperatures are forecasted to drop below 35 degrees and dry, or 40 degrees and rainy, Mr. Bar tholomew said. I t doesnt usually come on us really fast, we usually have a couple of days notice, he said. The cold front was definitely making news, so much so that people from the community were checking to see if the nonprofit was getting prepared. I was getting calls from everyone, even the police department, to find out if we we re going to be open, Mr. Bartholomew said.

This work is anticipated to take three months to complete. Dur ing the bridge painting, traffic shifts will occur on Orange Avenue, starting with the westbound lanes and then moving to the eastbound lanes.

S ome of Mr. Kroegels descendants, including his granddaughter Janice Kroegel Timinsky of Sebastian were present at the event, as were members of another old Sebastian family, the Semblers. M embers of the Sembler family could be seen going back and forth between the grill and the food tables making sure everyone had plenty of food to taste. The food items consisted of some of the same food S ebastian pioneers would have gathered from the local land and waters, Ranger Lowry said. M enu items included oysters, clams, swamp cabbage soup, heart of palm salad, mullet, mullet roe and cornbread. Tr acy Garceau manned a food table, slicing up heart of palm, also called swamp cabbage, a vegetable harvested from the inner core of a cabbage palm, a widely available tree in Indian River County. I like to eat it raw, but I heard someone say they like to cook it in bacon, Mr. Garceau said. B eekeeper Larry Bowles was on hand to educate festival participants about caring for bees and harvesting honey. Y ou cant judge a honey by its color, Mr. Bowles said. B ees make honey using nectar from a wide variety of sources, and different sources create different colored and different tasting honey, he said. Pioneers certainly used honey as a food, but they found other ways to use what the bees created, including using beeswax to make candles. No wadays we use candle molds, but they would dip candles, Mr. Bowles said. In addition to the pioneer food and the proclamation, the celebration included a screening of a documentary about Mr. Kroegel, a birthday cake and cupcakes and a re-release of two brown pelicans into the wild by Busch Wildlife S anctuary.

Plan in motion for free city dog parkVERO BEACH Local canines could have a fenced-in puppy-park on property owned by the city of Vero Beach later this y ear. Ve ro Beach City Manager J im OConnor is working with a not-for-profit group, The Friends of the Vero B each Dog Exercise Area, to craft a lease for the area behind Bob Summers Field, and for it to be declared an official off-leash dog park. Dur ing the Jan. 7 Vero B each City Council meeting, the council members heard from many members of the public that were in favor of making the dog park official, including Mr. M ack, a service dog that delivered signatures from 2,763 people who signed a petition in favor of an official dog park. May or Dick Winger told Mr. OConnor it was time for a dog park and he wanted it to move quickly. The timeline for an official opening is unclear. Mr. OConnor will negotiate the lease with the Friends group and then send it to the city recreation commission for review and then it would return to council for a vote. B ob Joy, spokesman for the Friends group, said their idea for the area wouldnt be exclusive to just a dog park, but would be developed in a way that other uses could still occur, including leaving space for vehicular entrance in the fencing. Although some people have said having a dog park next to a marina, right on v aluable riverfront property is a bad long term decision for water quality or potential city revenue, Mr. Joy said the uniqueness of a dog park near boat docks is actually a plus. V isitors that come to Vero B each on their boats travel to many places along the coast and often comment on how nice it is to have a place for their pups to run about, and even those without dogs onboard enjoy walking over and talking with people and their pets in the park. Pr ior into delving into the meeting Councilwoman Pilar Turner pulled another item on the agenda relating to dogs in parks. The council moved to send a proposal on allowing dogs into certain city parks to the citys volunteer recreation commission for r eview and recommendation, before the council takes a vote on the matter.

While others were shopping and celebrating, Lalita J anke and other Camp Haven supporters continued to work hard to ensure Camp Ha ven will provide a place for homeless in Vero Beach to sleep safely each night in 2014. Ms. Janke says residents have no idea of the number of homeless who sleeps wherever they can. There are so many in need of a safe place to sleep and a second chance, Ms. Janke said from Camp Haven headquarters when she announced the 2014 kickoff of Camp Havens extraordinary fundraising event on J an. 23. An elaborate ballroom evening of fine dining, dancing and entertainment in support of Camp Haven will be held at the Vero Beach Elks Club Crystal Ballroom with a r eception at 6 p.m. and dinner to follow at 7 p.m. This event is a very important fund raiser that is needed to ensure the success of C amp Havens program, which will take homeless men off the streets and give them a chance at a new beginning, Ms. Janke said. The event will honor Richard Stark, an Indian River C ounty philanthropist, who is well known for his nonprofit work the past 15 years. W e re proud to honor Mr. S tark, a champion for the fight against homelessness, said Jim Beckley, board vice president. Mr. Stark continues his charitable work in his hometown by passionately supporting the highly anticipated Camp Haven Homeless S helter for men on U.S. 1 in Ve ro Beach that is to receive its occupancy license any day now. C amp Haven is an Indian River County community project that provides supportive living opportunities and education to men committed to rising out of homelessness. Participants who are accepted into the Camp Ha ven program will go through a comprehensive evaluation process to assess whether they are willing to improve their lives and get back to work. The goal of Ca mp Haven is to help local men achieve self-sufficiency through counseling, training and encouragement r ebuilding their mind, body and spirit. C amp Haven, a Vero B each nonprofit community project whose time has come, provides not only shelter and stability while r esidents rebuild their lives, but also provides professional counseling, job opportunities, hope and encouragement, said Louise Hubbard, board member.

I look forward to where this is going to go, Mr. Griffin said. F lorida City Gas is owned by A GL Resources, the largest natural gas provider in the country, serving more than 4.5 million customers in seven states. In a previous interview with Hometown News, Mark S eagrave, market development manager for the company, said the demand for natural gas is the highest it has been in the 26 years he has been in the industry. W ith the discovery of methods to get natural gas from shale deposits, the U.S. has been able to increase its supply of natural gas, thereby lowering the cost to the consumer for the product. S hale is a sedimentary r ock with a variety of minerals, including clay. Shale gas is produced and found within shale rock formations.

They turned them in for deposit. M aine put back the bottle deposit several years ago. I thought kids would still be picking up the bottles on the beach and on the side of the road. Instead, early one morning, I saw seniors collecting bottles for returns. I had nothing but admiration for them. I do think that recycling is smarter than (having) deposits.

Allow only recyclable, materials on the grocers shelf. I thought that all glass should be recycled, not just drinks, but mayonnaise and pickle jars, as well. As for someone taking recycled cans out of the trash, perhaps he was hard up. We were taught, There, but for the grace of God, go I.Dogs arent always welcomeI just wanted to rave about the nice arts and crafts show I w ent to last week. I just have a question for everybody out there: why do people bring dogs to an arts and crafts show? Do they think the dogs know about arts and crafts? I saw several people, some who even had dogs in a baby carriage. One person had two dogs on a leash. They bark and theres not much r oom. I am a pet owner and a pet lover, but I know my dogs do not like craft shows and people do like to look at your dogs, smell them or watch them whatever theyre doing. U se some common sense, people.Anchor babies may subsidize increasing number of senior citizens in U.S.S ome countries have no anchor babies. A baby is only a citizen of the country in which he is born if his parents are citizens. Per haps someone did the math and figured out anchor babies will grow up to pay taxes and Social Security. Perhaps the base needed for increasing number of seniors who can only be supported with the influx of immigrants, legal or otherwise. Tr ue, their parents presently seem to be crippling the economy with their draw on the Social Security, educational, medical, welfare, legal and other services, but maybe it will balance out somewhere down the line. M aybe not. I am an English major, not a math major. When I was a kid...I walked back and forth from school four times a day, for more than 2 miles when I was a kid. Nowadays, the busses stop every couple of blocks, while parents sit in the cars waiting with the kids. Isnt it a waste of taxpayers money? With all these new sidewalks, cant the kids walk to the bus stops? No wonder Americans are so lazy. Bicyclists, stop taking up all the parking spacesWhy are bicyclists going everywhere in groups, and parking their vehicles in the very limited parking spaces there, then taking bicycles out of their cars and pedaling away? Then, they go biking for miles, and people trying to spend some time on the beach have to leave because there's no place to park. Pa rk ing is always a problem, but to park and then leave to go elsewhere is just wrong, shows total and complete lack of consideration for others and should be stopped immediately.Stop passing on double yellow linesT wice in the last month as I drove through my residential neighborhood, going the speed limit, I might add, I have had two vehicles pass me on the double yellow line. When has it become legal to pass on the double yellow? This is happening more and more and I am just appalled that someone can have such blatant disregard for the safety of others to save a few moments by speeding through a r esidential neighborhood. These are not small vehicles, either. If you see yourself in this letter, take a breath and take your foot off the gas and just relax. A few moments more to get where you are going won't kill you and just might save someone.Dont judgeI wish those who talk all about the people on food stamps would just shut up. They have no idea of what people go through or their situation. They complain about people buying food and then getting into a nice car or w earing nice jewelry. How can they be certain that the person shopping isnt shopping for somebody else? My daughter shops for me because Im homebound. She has a decent vehicle and has a couple rings on her fingers. S he is by no means rich, but she doesnt look as though shes poor. She goes to the grocery store for me once a w eek to get me a few things. If somebody had the audacity to look at her or follow her out to the car to see what she was driving, Id hope they would follow her to my house because Id have a mouthful to give them. Theres nobody on the face of the earth who has the right to judge someone based on what they drive or what they w ear. Those who do should be ashamed of themselves. Dont forget, one day youll sit and be judged. T alking about teachersIm friends with some local teachers. Its unbelievable that these are the same folks who sit inside a classroom and teach our kids. They have no use of proper English and are more judgmental and hypocritical than anybody I know. A teacher sounds offI'm a teacher and Im sick of people thinking its such an easy job. We deal with disrespectful kids and even worse, their disrespectful parents. They come to class because they have to, not because they want to. The parents make them show up because they will face jail time if they don't. Those certain few really ruin the teaching and learning experience for those who really want to be there. Something should be done to eradicate the schools of these nuisances. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

A generous benefactor adopted all three pigs along with one of the centers goats. Most of the people I work with are on a budget and trying to make every penny count. The vast majority of people who call me looking to upgrade their old machines are doing it on a fixed income and looking to either get their old machine fixed or replaced with as little out of pocket expense as possible. Usua lly money is a big issue and all they are trying to do is either get their old machine running the way it was or replace it with something that is capable of doing the same things they we re able to do with their old machine. When I wrote my column last week on getting a laptop over a desktop I wrote it with the cost factor in mind I wasnt thinking about the power user or people with cash to burn, I was thinking of the people who call me day after day who are thinking about r eplacing their old XP or V ista machine and are worried that a new machine will still be able to do what they were able to do on their old system. W ith new machines starting at around $300 these days computers are no longer the high end purchase that they were ten y ears ago. It is no longer necessary to go and spend $1,200 to $2,000 just to have a machine that will surf the we b, send and receive email and do the book keeping. Ev en video conferencing with programs like Skype (which is a pretty resource intensive task) is well within the capabilities of todays entry level $300 machines. And (as I wrote in my last column on the subject) a laptop even the entry level ones usually come with everything one needs to perform all of the basic tasks that nine out of 10 of the people who call me are trying to do. Right out of the box the entry level machine will run circles around the ancient XP machines and even some of the newer Vista machines that are out there. And with the price of a machine so much lower than it was 10 years ago, sinking money into an old sick machine doesnt make sense after a certain point like it does with a machine that cost five times as much. A $300 repair on a $1,500 machine is somewhat reasonable. A $300 r epair on a $300 computer? N ot so much. We live in an age where computers have become practically disposable. OK, so lets say youre one of the rare ones that call me and have money to burn and are youre also a power user. You run graphic intensive programs like video editors or maybe yo u re a serious gamer. Your r equirements are going to be much higher than the average user who just uses their machine for email and surfing the web. Once we get past the entry level requirements and stare getting into p ow er user territory, then things like upgrading components (like a new video card) and adequate cooling become much more of an issue. With a laptop, y ou really dont have the flexibility that you have with a desktop adding a high end video card for instance isnt going to happen and ru nning resource intensive programs (like some of the newer shoot-em-up games that are out now) arent going to work as well as they will on a desktop. The desktops larger size does allow for better cooling, component level repairs and better performance. B ut lets go back a step and look at the calls that I get on a daily basis. The person who calls me looking for advice on the purchase of a new machineUnless youre a power user, you dont have to spend a lot on a new machine COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

TREASURE COAST Flu season is here and more and more people across the country are getting sick. The American Red Cross urges people to get vaccinated now and offers tips everyone can follow to help prevent the spread of the flu. The Centers for Disease C ontrol report, for the week of December 29 to January 4, shows 35 states are seeing widespread flu activity, up from 25 a week earlier.Steps to prevent the fluThe most important step someone can take is to get a flu vaccine. The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone six months of age and older. O ther steps people can take to help prevent the spread of the flu virus: 1. Stay home if sick. 2. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. 3. Cover the nose and mouth with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, and throw the tissue away after use. If thats not possible, cough or sneeze into the elbow, not the hands. People with the flu can spread it to others about six feet away through coughs and sneezes. 4. Wash hands often, especially after coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand-rub. 5. Avoid touching the eyes, nose or mouth. I f someone has the flu they should avoid contact with others as much as possible, said South Florida R egion Executive Rob Levine. Everyone should also disinfect surfaces used commonly such as door knobs, switches, phones, computers and remote controls.Do I have the flu?The common signs of influenza are high fever, severe body aches, headache, being extremely tired, sore throat, cough, r unny or stuffy nose, and vomiting and/or diarrhea (more common in children). If someone thinks they have the flu, their healthcare provider should be consulted. Someone should seek medical care immediately if they develop any of the following symptoms: Fast breathing, trouble breathing or bluish skin color. Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen (adults). Confusion or sudden dizziness. Not drinking enough fluids, not being able to eat, or severe or persistent vomiting. Flu-like symptoms that improve but then return with fever and worse cough. Children not waking up, being so irritable that the child does not want to be held or not interacting. Fe ver with a rash. No tears when crying or significantly fewer wet diapers than normal.

Drop off chocolate candy and Valentine cards at two locations: Eye Clinic of Ve ro and Optical Boutique, 634 21st Street, Vero Beach and the Veterans Councils V ictory Center at the Indian River Mall. 2.

These interesting plants are extremely tough and surprisingly easy to care for. These plants do not require a lot of light and can grow in many places where other plants will not easily thrive such as in a bathroom. The plant has only one basic need and that is water. The Lucky Bamboo is actually not a bamboo at all. I ts botanical name is known as Dracaena Sanderana. It is also known as the ribbon plant. M any Feng Shui master r ecommend this plant because the plant can create a space where you feel energized and less stressed. I personally have one in every room and it is one of my most favorite plants. I have them in several locations, one on the porch, another in the kitchen and y et another in my office. They do well in almost any lighting condition. When I feel stressed out from a hard day, I often just look at the plant and think and it almost always gives me a feeling of comfort. Y ou can purchase Lucy B amboo in a couple of different ways. Sometimes y ou can find them already potted in all flavors of decorative pots. You can also purchase them loose and buy your own vase or pot. If you use a vase to display your plant, simply keep the roots covered with water. If you choose to plant them in a small pot, buy some small stones or even marbles to place around the plant to give it stability. The r ocks also give the plant a nice decorator look. T aking care of Lucky B amboo is very simple and worry free. All you need is to keep the plant in clean water. It is a good idea to change the water once a w eek or so. If you have city water, let the water stand for 24hours before putting the plant in it so the chlorine has a chance to dissipate. Better yet, use distilled water. If you have a w ell, the water is perfectly safe as is. You can add a diluted water-soluble houseplant fertilizer but it is not necessary. N ot only can these plants bring joy to yourself but they also bring good cheer to others in the form of gifts. You can create your o wn themes for any occasion simply by using the appropriate container. You can then add ribbons, picks or any other type of small object to create something truly special that will be cherished for time to come. This weeks garden tip: W ith the warm spring like w eather that is right around the corner, plant pests are sure to be eyeing your prized plants. One way to help ensure your insecticide stays where you spray it is to add a spreader sticker to your insecticide solution. A spreader sticker helps keep the spray on the plant and makes it harder for rain and your sprinklers to wash it off. This makes the solution more effective. A very inexpensive way to achieve this is to add a small amount of mild dish detergent or vegetable oil to y our bug juice before spraying. You should never spray your plants in the heat of the day as the solution can act like a small magnifying glass and cause the leaves to burn.

W ebsite: www.sunrisetheatre.com.FRIDAY, JAN. 31 SUNDAY, FEB. 2 Late Nite Catechism in the Black Box Theatre at Many of us would love to be members at a private club. Enjoying a great, wellmanicured course, a spiffy clubhouse complete with locker rooms, a dining r oom, bar and more would certainly make our golf times better. F or most of us, however, the price tag that goes along with that sort of membership leaves us on the outside of the gate looking longingly over the wall as someone else enjoys those benefits. Thanks to Golf Links of F lorida everyone may now experience that thrill without having to join a private club. In fact, by joining Golf Links of Florida, y ou get to enjoy outings at several private and semiprivate clubs instead of just one. Who would want to play the same course all the time anyway? GLOF was founded in 1998 by Valerie Scott as a way for people wishing to play private and semiprivate clubs to enjoy the experience without the hefty price tag of club membership. What was once a group of 10 golfers has grown to now number in the hundreds. T en years later, with V alerie winding down and r eady to retire, Vicky Wilson took over the reins and has r un GLOF since. The most fun for me is meeting the people that come to participate, said V icky. I have a lot of fun setting up these events. While most would think that the logistics that go with putting together so many outings at so many private clubs, that is not the case. G etting the word out about us has been the most challenging, Vicky stated. E veryone is thrilled to hear about us when they do find out about us. While you dont have to pay the GLOF membership fee to participate in any of the groups events, those who do pay the $50 annual fee enjoy better prices for events, and other benefits. Y ou can join as a single or get your group of golf buddies to join with you. Ev ents are not set up with any particular type of play. This means you and your four-some, or the people y ou're paired with, can decide amongst yourselves what kind of event you want to play. Maybe you want to play a scramble or skins. Perhaps you and another golfer want to play a match just between the two of you. Thats fine and certainly encouraged. Its entirely up to you. Best of all, the membership consists of a wide range of ages and skill levels allowing for everyone to have fun and compete, if they wish, against players with the same abilities. Each event is a shotgun start, allowing for everyone to start and finish at about the same time. This allows everyone to enjoy some food and beverages after their round as well as some good-natured boasting by those who played the best. There are even prizes to be won, including a 50/50 r affle. The social aspect of these outings has become as important as the golf itself. All of the members have made new friends at these outings and visiting with them has played a huge role in the success of GLOF. The schedule for 2014 is starting to shape up with the first event being held at At lantis Country Club on J an. 18. To date there are planned events at Westchester Country Club, Palm B each Par 3, PGA National R esort, Eastpoint Country Club, Breakers Ocean C ourse, Monarch Country Club, Boca Lago Country Club, Martin Downs, and B ear Lakes. More courses and dates will fill in over the next several weeks. The list of courses where GLOF has held an event since 1998 numbers well into the thirties. Some of the most desired clubs at which to tee it up are on this growing list. All the events take place on weekends, allowing us working stiffs the opportunity to enjoy them as well. In addition to golf outings, GLOF members have also gotten together for social events. Over the holidays the group met at iBar at the PGA National Resort for drinks, food and to talk about the year that was and the one upcoming. W e had a great turnout, said Vicky. Everyone had a great time, and it wasnt even golf!

The usual procedure is to check the weather in the area where we are going to fish. After we got the report, we had to change our plans. A "fog advisory" were the first words we heard, and from the looks of the area, it was going to be a slow r ide to Okeechobee. Going w est on Route 60 toward Y eehaw Junction, the fog got worse. We found a place to park, pulled out the coffee thermos poured a couple of cups and waited. After about an hour and half we started to see a break and that's all we needed. We put the boat in the water, now all we had to do was to find the channel to take us where we wanted to go. As we got closer to our fishing area, surprisingly, visibility got much better. Time wise, it was now almost 9 o'clock. As we we re putting on our lures for that first cast a thought came to mind; we were the only ones on this body of water along with the birds, gators and all of His creatures two human beings enjoying all of His doings. The sounds on a lake like Garcia early in the morning in those kind of conditions is something to behold. We fished for more than hour before the first bite, which was as a small bass. At about 10:30 we heard the first boat, then another and then the airboats started up taking their passengers to go see the gators. A bout 11:30 or so the bite started. Denny caught a couple of keeper fish, and then I caught a couple. We w ent to a new area and found some bigger ones and had some fun for about an hour. Our biggest was 6lbs.9oz. We caught probably a dozen or so from 15 to 25-inches. The fish were caught on a green pumpkin with red flake Senkos, green pumpkin fluke with blue flake and a Chug Bug. Im glad we didn't go to O keechobee. Well save that trip for next time. All the fish that were caught were re leased to swim again another day. It's good to know that someone else can enjoy the same thrill we did in catching those w eary Florida bass.
