M embers of the city council were joined by many members of the public in the Sebastian City Hall council chambers to hear a presentation by Br ian LaPointe, a research professor at Florida Atlantic University in Boca R aton. D espite calls from local citizens to do something" after hearing the presentation, the council did not take any action, and said they will use the information to develop a plan moving forward. C ouncilwoman Andrea Coy was visibly moved by the presentation and urged her fellow council members to take steps to address lagoon health, starting with passing a stronger fertilizer ordinance, something the council looked at last fall, but did not receive enough votes to pass. "I find it shameful that we are the only municipality (in the county) that doesn't have a strong fertilizer ordinance," Councilwoman Coy said.

Pet allergies to be addresses at animal shelter talkINDIAN RIVER COUNTY When the pollen count is high, many people break out the Benadryl or other allergy medications, but what can be done for a pet with itchy, watery eyes, or one that constantly licks or chews their paws in an attempt to alleviate an itch? V eterinarian Jeffrey Slade of Sebastian Animal Hospital will be presenting "Helping Pets with Allergies" at the Humane Society of Vero B each and Indian River C ounty next month to help answer this very question. The free class is scheduled for Feb. 12 at noon and guests are encouraged to pre-register for the class by calling ahead. Participants are asked to leave their pets at home, a press release said. "S kin allergies in pets, usually typified by chewing, licking and scratching, repr esent the No. 1 most common ailment of dogs and one of the top 10 conditions for cats," Dr. Slade said. There is a whole textbook full of reasons why pets itch," he said. A ccording to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, some of the common allergens include tree, grass and w eed pollens, mold spores, dust, cigarette smoke and fleas and flea-control products. Learning center seeks native' inspiration for student projectsPutting reading firstINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Math, snack time and r eading were a winning combination at Cradles to Cr ayons in Vero Beach last w eek during a special story time to celebrate literacy w eek statewide. "I s Your Mama a Llama?" written by Deborah Guarino, was the featured book and was read by Big Brothers Big Sisters and AmeriC orps volunteer Lynn T imm. A dorable illustrations of adolescent animals and pleasing rhyming patterns engaged the attentions of more than two dozen 3-, 4and 5-year-olds gathered in S usan Solis' class. The state's theme "Reading Accelerates Success" encourages students to connect literacy with all kinds of careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. After story time, the children were able to try "llama snacks," apples, carrots, broccoli and oranges and W ABASSO An annual contest to encourage students to engage in and take ownership of their environment is underway. The Environmental Learning Center in W abasso is accepting entries in the 18th annual "M aking a Difference in My W orld" contest, open for students from kindergarten through the fifth grade. Once again, the contest theme correlates with the learning center's spring E coFest theme, "Go N ative!" said Holly Dill, executive director of the Environmental Learning C enter. Go Native! emphasizes the area's flora and fauna and each grade level has its own specific project types and subjects to focus on, she said. Pr ojects include habitat dioramas, designing postcards, license plates or Tshirts featuring a native plant or animal, drawing pictures, using recycled materials and even writing stories. The contest is open to any kindergarten to fifth grade student, whether public, private, independent or homeschooled, Ms. D ill said.

Skin allergies are the No. 1 most common ailment of dogs and one of the top 10 conditions for cats. The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County will host a free seminar, "Helping Pets with Allergies" on Feb. 12 at noon with veterinarian Jeffrey Slade of Sebastian Animal Hospital.Photo courtesy of the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County"W e see pets suffering allergies all the time," said Ma r ia Ramirez, director of animal care at the shelter. "P ets with allergies, especially skin allergies, are an issue of concern for many pet owners," she said. Dogs can develop allergies at any time during their life, but allergic reactions are commonly found in terriers, setters, retrievers and flatfaced breeds, such as pugs, bulldogs and Boston terriers, according to the ASPCA. Therapy for skin allergies in pets commonly involves steroids, such as prednisone, but often involves antibiotics, antifungals, antiyeasts, antimicrobials and a variety of topical dips, parasiticides, conditioners and shampoos," Dr. Slade said. Du r ing the class, Dr. Slade will discuss the latest treatments for pets suffering from allergies and take questions from the audience.

J ason Daniel Kozdra, 41, of 1406 35th Ave., Vero Beach, was arrested on Jan. 18 by the Vero Beach Police D epartment and charged with reckless driving, giving a false report of planting a bomb and threatening to throw a destructive device. P olice are continuing to investigate Mr. Kozdra and further criminal charges are pending against him, a police report said. Mr. Kozdra has been booked into the county jail eight times in the past eight y ears on various misdemeanor and felony charges. In the narrative of a police press release from Officer J ohn Morrison of the Vero B each Police Department, the incidents leading up to Mr. Kozdra's arrest was a r ollover traffic crash on the 3300 block of U.S. 1. P olice officers observed Mr. Kozdra standing by the r oadside near the accident shouting "There is a bomb in that car, it's ticking and it will blow up any minute," the press release said. Mr. Kozdra was violent and combative with law enforcement and also made claims that he was part of a terrorist group, the car bomb was part of a terrorist attack and that bombs would be going off in local schools. He also made life threatening statements toward police and local government officials, the release said. An investigation by the St. L ucie County bomb squad did not indicate any presence of explosives in Mr. Kozdra's vehicle, a red GMC truck, and no suspicious materials have been found at local schools.

"W e can talk all day, let's do something," Councilwoman Co y said. Mr. LaPointe, who holds a doctoral degree in marine biology and has extensive experience in water quality r esearch in South Florida and the Caribbean region, said septic tanks hold nitrogen, a nutrient that has a negative effect on the lagoon. The wastewater that is in the septic tanks eventually makes its way to the lagoon, and the nutrients in the water are a food source for algae. When algal blooms appear, and then die in the lagoon, it creates a toxic situation for sea grasses that grow on the lagoon floor. When the algae is present, and when it decomposes, it decreases the amount of light and oxygen available for the plants, causing the sea grass to die, which creates a food and shelter shortage for creatures that call the lagoon home. Kristen Beck, co-owner of F lorida Outdoors Activities C enter in Sebastian and a conservationist with the Pelican Island Preservation Society, organizes tours of the I ndian River Lagoon on canoes or kayaks. S he said because of the conversations about the lagoon health in the news media, some people have canceled trips out onto the water. I ndian River County business owners that rely on the lagoon to make their living are already seeing adverse economic effects from the condition of the lagoon now, and it will only get worse if no action is taken, Mrs. Beck said. Mo ving from septic tanks to sewer systems would substantially decrease the amount of nitrogen coming into the lagoon, which is what cities to the south, especially r esidents of the Florida Keys have been moving toward for some time, Mr. LaPointe said. P laces where canals empty into the lagoon are called outfalls, and one way to learn more about the polluting nutrients enter the lagoon is to monitor where they are coming from to better pinpoint the source, Mr. LaPointe said. There are various methods of monitoring. Two types that have been discussed in Indian River County are kilroys, which are touted by the O cean Research and Conserv ation Association. The Kilroy instrument measures the "vital signs" of the water by monitoring water speed, direction, temperature, depth and chemical and biological indicators of health. H arbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, where Mr. LaPointe has often collabor ated and worked, uses a different system, a land/ocean biogeochemical observatory, or LOBO. In addition to measuring the physical aspects of the water like the Kilroy, the L OBO can also measure salinity, which is crucial when monitoring water, Mr. LaPointe said. There are other differences between the two instruments, and should the city pursue a monitoring system, he said it should be done well. If the goal is nutrient r eduction and finding the source of the nutrients, it's better to get high-quality tools, he said. "I would urge you not to skimp when it comes to monitoring," Mr. LaPointe said. F or more information about city government meetings,visit www.cityofsebastian.org.

After the children counted up the votes, oranges were by far the favorite with broccoli coming in last, but still r eceiving one vote. The foundation for reading is built from infancy, said Linda McConkey, quality specialist for the Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties. R eading age-appropriate books to children and asking questions about the pictures are an excellent way to help children build a relationship with their parents, and create a strong reading foundation that will help them later in life, said Ms. T imms. The push to encourage a command of reading in I ndian River County students goes well beyond the preschool level, as is evident by groups such as The Learning Alliance of Indian River County helping the school district with a goal to have 90 percent of thirdgrade students reading on or above grade level by 2018. A ccording to the nonprofit Literacy Services of Indian River County, it is estimated that one in five adults in I ndian River County struggle to complete job applications and read a newspaper or help their children with schoolwork. Literacy Services focuses primarily on adults with free, confidential and oneto-one tutoring to individuals age 16 and older, or in group tutoring sessions by r equest. The services are made possible by donations and community partners, such as the United Way.

The things children learn and absorb about the natur al resources, and the way they creatively and originally present them are wonderful to see, Ms. Dill said. P lans for EcoFest are going well and with a lot of the emphasis being placed on lagoon health, the Envir onmental Learning Center is hopeful that people will take more notice of the ecological ramifications of their decisions and make ones that positively affect the environment, Ms. Dill said.

Power company provides cold-weather tipsTREASURE COAST F lorida Power & Light has offered the following tips to those enduring the cold days of winter. FPL has been monitoring the approach of multiple cold fronts and is well-positioned to meet the increased electricity needs of its customers throughout the company's 35-county service area. There are several steps that customers can take to be safe and conserve electricity:Safety tips FPL encourages its customers to stay safe when heating their homes or businesses, especially when using space heaters: Use space heaters for only limited amounts of time and not as a primary heat source. Direct the heater to warm people, not space. Keep flammable mater ials such as bedding, clothing, draperies, rugs and furniture at least 3 feet away from the heater. Keep children and pets away from the heater. Keep space heaters away from water to avoid electric shock. Turn off and unplug the heater when leaving the r oom for an extended period of time. Avoid using extension cords. Cu stomers can visit www.FPL.com/safety for additional safety tips.Energy-efficiency tipsH eating systems in Florida typically use two to three times more energy than what is needed to cool a home. FPL encourages customers to use their energy wisely to keep their bills as low as possible: Adjust your thermostat Heat your home at 68 degrees or cooler with the thermostat fan switched to "auto." Lower your thermostat to 65 degrees or cooler at bedtime or when you are away from home. Keep your filters clean Clean or replace your heating, ventilation and air conditioner system's filter every month to trim your heating costs and help y our unit run more efficiently. Reduce air leaks Seal doors and windows with weather-stripping or caulk. Take advantage of the sun's heat and light Keep your south-facing windows clean. Open curtains on south-facing windows during the day and close all curtains at night. Take shorter showers and use an efficient showerhead People tend to take longer showers in colder w eather, which increases water heating costs, so try to make it brief and r emember to use a lowflow showerhead. Turn down the temperature on water heaters Most water heaters are set to 140 degrees; you'll still have plenty of hot water at 115 to 120 degrees. Adjust pool pump operating time Swimming pools typically require less filtration in winter Reduce the time you r un your pool pump by two hours a day and you could save $8.21 per month. Take an Online Home Energy Survey FPL's Online Home Energy Survey gives you a personalized savings plan filled with energy-saving tips and recommendations based on your unique patterns of energy consumption.

Respondents to a R euters poll said by a 2 to 1 margin they "worry about a terrorist attack." The enemy is encouraged by any sign of American weakness. We should demonstrate determination and strength. Are you listening, Mr. President?Insurance scamsLet me get this straight you have a bad back or you're a convicted drug user you can't find work or you're an alcoholic, you doctor shop you get an ambulance chaser, better known as an attorney you fill out a whole bunch of paperwork describing why you can't work. You get fully funded government check, then you're out on the town either getting supplied with pain killers or you're at your local pub drinking. Now you can live what you interpret as a nice life style. Wow, what a scam. No wonder communities have problems and our country is in the toilet. If you don't find anything wrong with this then my suggestion is please don't vote because you can't even take care of yourself.Do I smell a scam?I am practicing to be a snowbird when I grow up and, consequently, spend much time in the area. I had an occasion in the past, when meeting four women friends for an afternoon of shopping and lunch in another town of nearly having my auto towed away. Although the lot was nearly empty the driver was just about to hook a tow under the front end of my vehicle. He already had a car on the flatbed. Well, he was confronted with five former N ew York women all with cell phones. He seemed to be trying to get money out of us to leave the car alone. When one said she was calling the sheriff, he decided to leave. I began to smell a scam. The next time I was in the Treasure Coast Mall, I stopped in the Sheriff's outpost there and asked. They seemed not to know any law or policy about parking in large areas like these. Nor were they culling for autos with out of state plates for the retrieval and towing fees incurred. W ell this does not sit well with me. I belong to a bicycle club on Long Island and we usually meet in shopping centers, depending on the ride's destination. I believe the theory of the owners if that it looks more prosperous the more cars in the lot. We always park far away from where most customers want to be as do other groups who meet for their purposes of ride sharing. Good Business! Along Long Island's major thoroughfares there are "Park and Ride" lots for commuters who share driving. Y esterday (a rainy Sunday) I met a friend at the P ublix/Beall's shopping center on U.S. 1 and Cove Road, but she was leery since a little sign newly posted was at the entrance regarding tow away. We drove in separate cars to and from the movie in Jupiter. I now more than ever think there is a 'cottage industry' here which preys on unsuspecting vacationers, snowbirds, etc. This would be a practice which would certainly have a negative impact on the county sort of like the old but notorious speed traps in Georgia, for example. C an someone direct me to where ride shares might take place without danger of tow? I am looking to become a permanent resident and would like to know where I might safely leave my car in the future. Perhaps a big chain store would realize the good will (and increased business) they would receive by announcing a welcome to car poolers. I also read of all the gas guzzling blamed on drivers. What is a driver to do if not park somewhere and share a ri de? Perhaps the county fathers can solve this dilemma.Curbing the golf cartsThe rave is to the manager and personnel at the Winn D ixie Store on Route 1 just outside Barefoot Bay. The store recently put up signs forbidding the parking of golf carts on the sidewalk in front of the store. Y ou would think that it would not be necessary, that common sense and good manners would cause people to park in the parking lot, but that doesn't happen. If y ou have ever shopped at the store then you have played "dodge the golf cart" either driving down the sidewalk or parked blocking the door. If the cart drivers drove their car to the store they would park in the parking lot without thinking about it. But put the same people in a golf cart and they think the rules do not apply to them. Once again, a "job well done" to the store. No w if the sheriff's department would ticket those golf carts driving on the sidewalk on Micco Road.Sounding off on welfare recipientsLet's see who wants to pay for other lazy people's life style? Who wants to give their hard-earned money to people who don't want to work? Who wants to support women who want to get pregnant just so they can catch a free ride on the welfare wagon? Yes, those who have more than one child but don't work to support the kids you're producing. Y ou know who you are. Anyway, who wants to support those individuals? Not me or anyone one else with good morals. Take a look at the history of it socialism doesn't work. If people can't support themselves then they have their own problems. Hard working people or successful business people shouldn't have to bear that. Next election time, vote for the person who believes in individual independence. It's not anyone's fault that others mismanaged their life. And especially those who knowingly have more than one child and nearly no education but use the welfare system as their source of income. Or what I should say, they use a human life as a tool to get into the terribly misused social services for a paycheck.

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, JAN. 24, 2014 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Master of the oarsLuke Margolis, 18, a Sebastian River High School Crew Team member, set out to break a record for rowing of 44hours last Friday afternoon. Although he didn't make the record, he did row for 22-hours for a total of 140,068 meters or 87.2 miles, a personal best record by any account.Cliff Partlow staff photographer Ir emember when I got my first laptop back in the 1990s, how wonderful life as going to be I imagined how easy it would be when someone called while I was on the r oad, I could just open the cover, tap a few keys and have all the information I needed at my fingertips. I also recall a failed experiment with "Via V oice" (IBM's voice r ecognition software) where I tried in vain to write my column by speaking into the laptop's microphone. The reality, unfortunately, came nowhere near the fantasy. F irst of all that old laptop of mine weighed a ton. I had one of those carry bags with the wheels and a handle that pulled out and dragged it behind me everywhere I went but that wasn't really the worst part. I mean carrying tools around is always part of a "r oad warrior's" lifestyle; at least this thing had wheels! No, the big problem was how long the darn thing took to turn on. Y ou see with my Day R unner, all I had to do was open the book to the day's date and start writing. It even had a little plastic book mark thingy so I could open it to the day's date without looking. The only issue I had with the D ay Runner is every couple of months I would r un out of calendar pages and have to go get new ones (which is probably the same problem the M ayans had with their calendar I think they just r an out of pages at 2012 and never refilled). W ith my laptop it was downright embarrassing! Y ou think it takes computers a long time to boot up today? You wouldn't believe how long the wait was 15 years ago. I can clearly remember trying to get into my machine to look someone's information up and waiting and waiting and waiting. And don't get me started on the battery life! I learned a v aluable lesson in those days and it was to always keep my power cable handy and be aware of the location of the nearest outlet. (I even had a $30 inverter in my car so I could plug in when I needed to). The battery would always look like it had enough power but, if I wasn't near an outlet then M urphy's law would kick in and the battery would die right when I was in the middle of some important task. No the whole "using my laptop instead of a Day R unner" experiment was a dismal failure. I found myself carrying my Day R unner and lugging my laptop behind me. F ast forward to now and I'm very happy to say I love living in the future! Y ou may have noticed these devices called tablets" seem to be popping up all over the place and recently I became the proud owner of a new iPad. And with my iPad all of those fantasies of having all of my data at my fingertips that I had in the 90s with my laptop have all come true. The first thing that I've noticed is that when I press the little button on the bottom of my tablet (the iPad) it's on. And I mean instantly. There is no five minute wait for the thing to boot up and when it does wake up I have access to everything. I can access email, my address book and all of my notes that I make while I'm working and the clever part is that the notes that I r ead have usually been typed in at my home office on my desktop computer. They just happen to synchronize with my iPad so when I'm out in the field, everything that I worked on at my main computer at home is available on my iPad instantly I just turn it onThe luxury of living in the future COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

A rave about the areaI just moved here from up north to escape the cold, harsh winters. Much to my delight are so many lovely r esidents that are welcoming and friendly. It's so r efreshing to live in a beautiful community that thrives. Riding my bike around the area I find so many wonderful places to shop, frolic along the beach or find a great book at the library. All the goodness here is much appreciated including the beautiful weather. Thank y ou!A true southernerO kay, here we go again. I'm a true southerner, born and raised in the south. I'm not one of these snow birds who move to the south and live here for a couple of y ears then claim to be a southerner. I have to laugh when I go to Publix and watch these snow birds in the parking lot and of course in the store. In the store you have to watch them because they're always in a hurry and believe me they will run y ou over with their shopping cart. I'm thinking their house must be on fire and they have to hurry home to put it out. Now for the parking lot they see someone backing out of a parking space and if they want the space they'll sit and wait, but if not they'll sit and lay down on that horn, and it's a wonder they don't give the poor soul backing out a heart-attack. When these snow birds pack up and come south for our nice warm weather and our beaches you would think they would know in the south we take things slow, laid back and enjoy life. It's not good to be in such a r ush. No wonder the doctor's office is so full in the winter when they come down. So please don't be so r ude and unfriendly r espect us southern folks. Life is too short to just hurry through it. Just lay back and enjoy our warm weather and of course, the slow moving Southerners. Referring to Racism or not'I beg to differ to your reference to Jesus as Satan in disguise. Jesus is God's son and never would even think of being with Satan. From what you say in your rant, y ou seem to imply that you are a black person who has some hatred for white people and want to put them as devils. I suggest that you stop thinking of whites as bad people and look at y ourself. I have worked for almost 40-years with the public and never thought of customers as looking down at me or anyone else that worked with me. You seem to have a problem with white people. Why, I don't understand. You and others that think like you are one of the reasons that racism never stops. I know we are different but still the same. Tr y to see from a different view and you will be surprised. Try to get along with y our customers and I think y ou will see they are no different than you are in many ways. God views all of us the same. Try to be more like H im and Jesus and I think y ou will get a different attitude. I know that all of us have problems in our thinking of things but no one is perfect and never was except for Jesus who was perfect in all ways. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, January 24, 2014 Sebastian River Area A7 TURNING 65?New To Medicare and Confused About Your Options?

"I am so proud of what everyone contributes to the children of Hibiscus how everyone works together to care for the children," said Mr. Smythe. When I give, I just feel so good about doing something for others. I hope that by helping people in need, I can inspire others to give also. If they do, they will have this great feeling too! What I do comes from inside my heart." R aquel Tilton, Indian River County volunteer, shared "As a Hibiscus volunteer for over 20 years, it is exciting to see many individuals and businesses from across the Treasure Coast community working together for one purpose helping abused children and youth. I am proud to be a committee member for the Cabaret event being held in Stuart and look forward to a terrific evening on March 2nd celebrating Hibiscus Children's C enter".

My companion and I were in a rush and opted for their take-out menu. The menu is chockfull of delicious choices so it took more than a few minutes to decide. I am very much a creature of habit and decided to go with my usual: the Sashimi and Unazyu Set ($14.95) accompanied by a J.B T emaki ($3.95) and one piece each of the Surf Clam ($1.95) and the Quail's Egg ($.50). What can I say I'm an adventurous eater! My companion chose the Crab Angels ($5.95) and the P anang Curry Chicken ($8.95) from the Thai side of the menu. We gave our order over the phone to the friendly waitress and within 20 minutes, our food was ready for pickup. When I got to the r estaurant, I struck up a conversation with a waiting customer and the Itamae (skilled sushi chef) over how uni (sea urchin) should taste and its proper consistency. After having eaten this sea creature at another sushi restaurant, I was not as pleased with it, but the chef urged me to try their sea urchin ($4.95). I ordered a piece of it and was immensely pleased at its creamy consistency and subtle oceanic taste. It truly changed my mind about my future consumption about the sea urchin in general. The chef then explained that he heavily scrutinizes the product that is offered at Siam Orchid and works to command the best quality in every dish. When we came back to the office, we eagerly attacked our lunch. The S ashimi and Unazyu set comes with two pieces of salmon, tuna, and white fish in addition to barbequed eel with rice, two pieces of a California Eel R oll, and a small helping of seaweed salad.

served with soy sauce and wasabi. Each slice of fish was expertly cut and prepared, exhibiting a fresh and wholesome taste. No sauce is necessary to enjoy the sashimi one will relish its modest flavor on its own. The California Eel Roll harbors crab, eel, cream cheese, and green onion, lightly fried (tempura). The savory components of the roll melded well together. Evoking a sweet, yet light taste, the barbequed eel graces the r ice and gives a greater texture to the dish as a whole. Ga r nished with sesame seeds, the seaweed salad had a crisp, light vinegary taste and served as an appropriate addition. Also of note, the J.B. T emaki (temaki is defined as a cone-shaped hand roll) consisted of fresh salmon, cream cheese, and green onion. The bite-sized chunks of fresh salmon leant themselves superbly to the cream cheese with the green onions adding a veritable bite. Even the seaweed wrapping of which the ingredients were encased gave fresh purpose and definition to the roll's overall completion. The Surf Clam had a meaty, slightly rubbery texture and the Quail E gg was of a rich, yolky consistency (almost akin to eating a normal raw egg, albeit ten times smaller). Both pieces were fitting additions to this fabulous lunch. On the other hand, my companion's Crab Angels we re exceptional as well. F our fried, flaky pastries that encapsulated rich cream cheese and fresh crab were a gift from heaven, it seemed. As opposed to the run-of-the-mill Asian restaurant, Siam's version of this popular dish offers a spicy yet sweet sauce to go along with each tantalizingly demure pastry. According to Siam Orchid, these "four fried crab wontons make an excellent beginning for Thai meals" and I couldn't agree more. For the Panang C urry, my companion opted for the chicken version of this dish. The chicken is soaked in coconut milk along with a sweet panang curry sauce: sweet y et savory and while rich, exudes flavor. All together, the dish has addictive qualities and my companion could not stop eating it. All in all, Siam Orchid has the best of both worlds: Thai and Japanese. With their menu being more than five pages long, it may take you a while to choose something but no matter what, you know you'll have made the right choice. U nquestionably, the itamae has succeeded in his quest to provide the superior experience in fine Asian cuisine here in Vero Beach.

"Ragtime Bob" Milne, considered by many to be the best ragtime/boogie-woogie pianist in the world, is back by Iknow, with all this cold w eather the last thing you are probably thinking about is spring. Y ou have to remember that our spring could be just a couple of weeks away. Once we get past January and the first part of February, it is almost time for the peak planting season in Florida. No w is the time to start thinking about what you want to plant and how to add color to your yard. For now, orchids can make for great center pieces or add color to your porch or patio. They are in full bloom at many of your local nurseries right now. When you visit your local nursery if you are like most people, you are always trying to find plants that are colorful and different. The colorful orchid plant certainly meets those criteria. My wife and I have actually become addicted to the fascinating colors and their ov erall beauty. Soon the spring orchid shows will be underway including the one at the Martin County fairgrounds. There, you are certain to add a few new va r ieties to your collection. Orchids are truly amazing plants. Many people think that orchids are difficult to grow but actually the opposite is true. Orchids are no more difficult to grow then many flowering annuals. Orchids simply need the basic plant essentials: light, water, fertilizer and air. The flowering cycle of the orchid will va ry from variety to variety but in general, they will bloom from one to four w eeks. Under ideal conditions, up to six weeks is not out of the question. Orchids are unique plants in the fact that they do not grow in soil. In fact, if you try to plant an orchid in soil, it will mean most certain death. Orchids need to be planted in special bark mixes that are specially made for your plants. If you place your orchids outside under a tree, they do not need any planting medium at all. The plants will attach themselves to the tree and obtain all of their nutrients from natural r ainwater and air. This is how orchids grow in the wild. If y ou want to grow a prize Orchid, this is the way to go. F or many people, growing orchids outside is out of the question but you can still grow orchids inside or on a porch with excellent results. If y ou choose to raise your plants inside, find a bright windowsill or an area that is as close to a natural light source as possible. Usually when you purchase your plant, it will already be planted in a container with the appropriate planting medium. However, you may want to transplant your flower in a more decorative pot or it just might need to be put into a larger container. In this case, you can use either an appropriate bark mix or decorative stones. Either of these materials will allow the r oots to stay aerated enough so they will be able to breathe. The roots will also need good drainage. One of orchid's worst enemies is too much water. You should water your plants completely about once a week or so. Always allow them to dry before watering again. Do not over water. Once your orchid has bloomed out, the next step is to try to get your plant to rebloom at a later time. In order for orchids to bloom again, they need a 10 degree temperature difference between the day and night temperature. You can either do this by your air conditioning system or placing the plant on a porch where the temperature difference will happen naturally. This trick can mean the difference between a plant that has just green leaves and a plant that will again treat you to a r ainbow of color. Orchids are not heavy feeders but when you do feed them, they will require a special orchid food. Find a mix that is specially made for y our plants. A fertilizer with the numbers 20-10-20 will do an excellent job. Feed your plants once a week with a w eak solution of the fertilizer. Orchids need an ample amount of humidity in order to thrive. If the humidity is below 50 percent in your home, your plants will not do w ell. You can alleviate this problem by running a humidifier near the plant during the normally dry winter months.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, January 24, 2014 Sebastian River Area B5 087225Answers located in Classified Section Well my favorite w eek of the year is here. The week of the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. While you are r eading this, I am working my tail off, traveling up and down aisles of golf equipment, training aides, bags, apparel and more. While I always look forward to this week, this y ear there is a cloud hanging over it. For many, many years now, I have traveled to the show with two of my best friends and colleagues, Dan Shube and M ichael Murphy. This year, M ichael, who is my co-host on the radio, is home ill. Ve ry ill. What was once a celebration and a week of golfing, making new friends and visiting with old, eating out at fine restaurants, smoking cigars, and generally enjoying a "guys" week away, will be subdued this y ear. There is still, however, work to be done. We will find those elusive stories at the show that the major magazines and news media miss or pass on. Things seem to be picking up a bit the past couple of years, and we are anxious to see if it has continued into 2014. One event that I am pleased to see continue is the Tour Edge Media O uting. This event brings many of us media into town a day early for a day of talking to various manufacturers and enjoying a day playing golf and sampling the latest from Tour Edge and the Exotics line of equipment. We wind up that first day with prizes and awards as w ell as a wonderful meal, all thanks to Tour Edge. This event puts us in the r ight frame of mind for the w eek to come. The second day will be a good measure of how the golf companies view the present economy. The PGA Me r chandise Show Demo Da y, held at Orange County N ational, puts products from a hundred or so companies into our hands. U sing the circular driving r ange at OCN, we get to hit all the clubs we want. We will get to try the latest from nearly every major manufacturer and even some of the little guys. It's a great way to see what's new and how well it works. W ednesday, Thursday and Friday, we will hit the floor of the convention center. There are more than10 miles of aisles for us to walk, and over 1,000 vendors for us to visit. It's here that we do most of our work. This is also where you will likely find your club's head professional or general manager looking for new products for the pro shop. Shirts and hats will be ordered by the hundreds. Some are even here to look into a new fleet of golf carts, or mowers, or furniture for the clubhouse. If y ou can't find it here, it likely hasn't been invented y et. The show is a great place for the smaller companies to get the word out about their products. They lack the big money to advertise in major publications, and don't have the staff to visit every club in the country. At the show, the clubs come to them. They have a chance to make their pitch and gain a new client. In the past I have seen some of the major companies walk over and talk with these small guys in an effort to buy the rights to a unique product. While in town we're going to be playing some golf as w ell. We'll be visiting three courses in the area and will r eport back to you whether or not they are worth a look. The most important thing D an and I plan to do is as often as we can think about our good friend Michael, sitting back home. It's been a fun ride with Michael along, and this year will certainly not be the same. Hopefully we will have some great tales to tell him when we get home. But while we're away, we want him to know that we love him and we'll miss him being with us.

Cliff Partlow /staff photographerAs Brad Norman moves the quad copter away from a certain point the GPS navigation system returns the unit to the previously entered coordinates. While most high school students are just looking to have fun, Taylor Norman and his dad Brad are building 3D printers and designing quad, hex and octo copters to fly up to 400-feet in the air. The two entrepreneurs created UltiBots. While 3D printing isn't new, each design built with the printers is.

It's all about "character building", a topic that's not really part of the formal curriculum and too often not taught at home. The creative program, Winners W alk Tall, strives to develop a foundation of good habits, values, and personal pride in our youth, thereby increasing their chances of maturing into happy and productive citizens. Topics discussed include Manners Matter, Don't Be A Bully, Compliment ~ Don't Criticize, and Peer PressureWatch O ut! Originally created in Ohio by Grand Harbor resident Bob Mauk, the program is in its eleventh year within the Vero Beach elementary schools and currently has 57 volunteers conducting fifteen minute w eekly classroom sessions for more than 2,000 students. These weekly sessions and the re inforcement of the topics by the teachers have proven to be a key factor toward increasing the selfconfidence and self-esteem of many local students" said Ed J ohnson, Vero Beach program director. The program is of absolutely no cost to the school, gives the teacher a reinforcing voice, has minimal impact on class time and the kids love it. Grand Harbor Community Outr each has provided the funding y ear after year for all the colorful classroom materials that help make the learning fun for both the students and character captains.

M embers of the city council were joined by many members of the public in the Sebastian City Hall council chambers to hear a presentation by Br ian LaPointe, a research professor at Florida Atlantic University in Boca R aton. D espite calls from local citizens to do something after hearing the presentation, the council did not take any action, and said they will use the information to develop a plan moving forward. C ouncilwoman Andrea Coy was visibly moved by the presentation and urged her fellow council members to take steps to address lagoon health, starting with passing a stronger fertilizer ordinance, something the council looked at last fall, but did not receive enough votes to pass. I find it shameful that we are the only municipality (in the county) that doesnt have a strong fertilizer ordinance, Councilwoman Coy said.

Pet allergies to be addresses at animal shelter talkINDIAN RIVER COUNTY When the pollen count is high, many people break out the Benadryl or other allergy medications, but what can be done for a pet with itchy, watery eyes, or one that constantly licks or chews their paws in an attempt to alleviate an itch? V eterinarian Jeffrey Slade of Sebastian Animal Hospital will be presenting Helping Pets with Allergies at the Humane Society of Vero B each and Indian River C ounty next month to help answer this very question. The free class is scheduled for Feb. 12 at noon and guests are encouraged to pre-register for the class by calling ahead. Participants are asked to leave their pets at home, a press release said. S kin allergies in pets, usually typified by chewing, licking and scratching, repr esent the No. 1 most common ailment of dogs and one of the top 10 conditions for cats, Dr. Slade said. There is a whole textbook full of reasons why pets itch, he said. A ccording to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, some of the common allergens include tree, grass and w eed pollens, mold spores, dust, cigarette smoke and fleas and flea-control products. Learning center seeks native inspiration for student projectsPutting reading firstINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Math, snack time and r eading were a winning combination at Cradles to Cr ayons in Vero Beach last w eek during a special story time to celebrate literacy w eek statewide. I s Your Mama a Llama? written by Deborah Guarino, was the featured book and was read by Big Brothers Big Sisters and AmeriC orps volunteer Lynn T imm. A dorable illustrations of adolescent animals and pleasing rhyming patterns engaged the attentions of more than two dozen 3-, 4and 5-year-olds gathered in S usan Solis class. The states theme Reading Accelerates Success encourages students to connect literacy with all kinds of careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. After story time, the children were able to try llama snacks, apples, carrots, broccoli and oranges and W ABASSO An annual contest to encourage students to engage in and take ownership of their environment is underway. The Environmental Learning Center in W abasso is accepting entries in the 18th annual M aking a Difference in My W orld contest, open for students from kindergarten through the fifth grade. Once again, the contest theme correlates with the learning centers spring E coFest theme, Go N ative! said Holly Dill, executive director of the Environmental Learning C enter. Go Native! emphasizes the areas flora and fauna and each grade level has its own specific project types and subjects to focus on, she said. Pr ojects include habitat dioramas, designing postcards, license plates or Tshirts featuring a native plant or animal, drawing pictures, using recycled materials and even writing stories. The contest is open to any kindergarten to fifth grade student, whether public, private, independent or homeschooled, Ms. D ill said.

Skin allergies are the No. 1 most common ailment of dogs and one of the top 10 conditions for cats. The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County will host a free seminar, Helping Pets with Allergies on Feb. 12 at noon with veterinarian Jeffrey Slade of Sebastian Animal Hospital.Photo courtesy of the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River CountyW e see pets suffering allergies all the time, said Mar ia Ramirez, director of animal care at the shelter. P ets with allergies, especially skin allergies, are an issue of concern for many pet owners, she said. Dogs can develop allergies at any time during their life, but allergic reactions are commonly found in terriers, setters, retrievers and flatfaced breeds, such as pugs, bulldogs and Boston terriers, according to the ASPCA. Therapy for skin allergies in pets commonly involves steroids, such as prednisone, but often involves antibiotics, antifungals, antiyeasts, antimicrobials and a variety of topical dips, parasiticides, conditioners and shampoos, Dr. Slade said. Dur ing the class, Dr. Slade will discuss the latest treatments for pets suffering from allergies and take questions from the audience.

W e can talk all day, lets do something, Councilwoman Co y said. Mr. LaPointe, who holds a doctoral degree in marine biology and has extensive experience in water quality r esearch in South Florida and the Caribbean region, said septic tanks hold nitrogen, a nutrient that has a negative effect on the lagoon. The wastewater that is in the septic tanks eventually makes its way to the lagoon, and the nutrients in the water are a food source for algae. When algal blooms appear, and then die in the lagoon, it creates a toxic situation for sea grasses that grow on the lagoon floor. When the algae is present, and when it decomposes, it decreases the amount of light and oxygen available for the plants, causing the sea grass to die, which creates a food and shelter shortage for creatures that call the lagoon home. Kristen Beck, co-owner of F lorida Outdoors Activities C enter in Sebastian and a conservationist with the Pelican Island Preservation Society, organizes tours of the I ndian River Lagoon on canoes or kayaks. S he said because of the conversations about the lagoon health in the news media, some people have canceled trips out onto the water. I ndian River County business owners that rely on the lagoon to make their living are already seeing adverse economic effects from the condition of the lagoon now, and it will only get worse if no action is taken, Mrs. Beck said. Moving from septic tanks to sewer systems would substantially decrease the amount of nitrogen coming into the lagoon, which is what cities to the south, especially r esidents of the Florida Keys have been moving toward for some time, Mr. LaPointe said. P laces where canals empty into the lagoon are called outfalls, and one way to learn more about the polluting nutrients enter the lagoon is to monitor where they are coming from to better pinpoint the source, Mr. LaPointe said. There are various methods of monitoring. Two types that have been discussed in Indian River County are kilroys, which are touted by the O cean Research and Conserv ation Association. The Kilroy instrument measures the vital signs of the water by monitoring water speed, direction, temperature, depth and chemical and biological indicators of health. H arbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, where Mr. LaPointe has often collabor ated and worked, uses a different system, a land/ocean biogeochemical observatory, or LOBO. In addition to measuring the physical aspects of the water like the Kilroy, the L OBO can also measure salinity, which is crucial when monitoring water, Mr. LaPointe said. There are other differences between the two instruments, and should the city pursue a monitoring system, he said it should be done well. If the goal is nutrient r eduction and finding the source of the nutrients, its better to get high-quality tools, he said. I would urge you not to skimp when it comes to monitoring, Mr. LaPointe said. F or more information about city government meetings,visit www.cityofsebastian.org.

After the children counted up the votes, oranges were by far the favorite with broccoli coming in last, but still r eceiving one vote. The foundation for reading is built from infancy, said Linda McConkey, quality specialist for the Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties. R eading age-appropriate books to children and asking questions about the pictures are an excellent way to help children build a relationship with their parents, and create a strong reading foundation that will help them later in life, said Ms. T imms. The push to encourage a command of reading in I ndian River County students goes well beyond the preschool level, as is evident by groups such as The Learning Alliance of Indian River County helping the school district with a goal to have 90 percent of thirdgrade students reading on or above grade level by 2018. A ccording to the nonprofit Literacy Services of Indian River County, it is estimated that one in five adults in I ndian River County struggle to complete job applications and read a newspaper or help their children with schoolwork. Literacy Services focuses primarily on adults with free, confidential and oneto-one tutoring to individuals age 16 and older, or in group tutoring sessions by r equest. The services are made possible by donations and community partners, such as the United Way.

Power company provides cold-weather tipsTREASURE COAST F lorida Power & Light has offered the following tips to those enduring the cold days of winter. FPL has been monitoring the approach of multiple cold fronts and is well-positioned to meet the increased electricity needs of its customers throughout the companys 35-county service area. There are several steps that customers can take to be safe and conserve electricity:Safety tips FPL encourages its customers to stay safe when heating their homes or businesses, especially when using space heaters: Use space heaters for only limited amounts of time and not as a primary heat source. Direct the heater to warm people, not space. Keep flammable mater ials such as bedding, clothing, draperies, rugs and furniture at least 3 feet away from the heater. Keep children and pets away from the heater. Keep space heaters away from water to avoid electric shock. Turn off and unplug the heater when leaving the r oom for an extended period of time. Avoid using extension cords. Cu stomers can visit www.FPL.com/safety for additional safety tips.Energy-efficiency tipsH eating systems in Florida typically use two to three times more energy than what is needed to cool a home. FPL encourages customers to use their energy wisely to keep their bills as low as possible: Adjust your thermostat Heat your home at 68 degrees or cooler with the thermostat fan switched to "auto." Lower your thermostat to 65 degrees or cooler at bedtime or when you are away from home. Keep your filters clean Clean or replace your heating, ventilation and air conditioner systems filter every month to trim your heating costs and help y our unit run more efficiently. Reduce air leaks Seal doors and windows with weather-stripping or caulk. Take advantage of the suns heat and light Keep your south-facing windows clean. Open curtains on south-facing windows during the day and close all curtains at night. Take shorter showers and use an efficient showerhead People tend to take longer showers in colder w eather, which increases water heating costs, so try to make it brief and r emember to use a lowflow showerhead. Turn down the temperature on water heaters Most water heaters are set to 140 degrees; youll still have plenty of hot water at 115 to 120 degrees. Adjust pool pump operating time Swimming pools typically require less filtration in winter Reduce the time you r un your pool pump by two hours a day and you could save $8.21 per month. Take an Online Home Energy Survey FPL's Online Home Energy Survey gives you a personalized savings plan filled with energy-saving tips and recommendations based on your unique patterns of energy consumption.

Respondents to a R euters poll said by a 2 to 1 margin they "worry about a terrorist attack." The enemy is encouraged by any sign of American weakness. We should demonstrate determination and strength. Are you listening, Mr. President?Insurance scamsLet me get this straight you have a bad back or youre a convicted drug user you cant find work or youre an alcoholic, you doctor shop you get an ambulance chaser, better known as an attorney you fill out a whole bunch of paperwork describing why you cant work. You get fully funded government check, then youre out on the town either getting supplied with pain killers or youre at your local pub drinking. Now you can live what you interpret as a nice life style. Wow, what a scam. No wonder communities have problems and our country is in the toilet. If you dont find anything wrong with this then my suggestion is please dont vote because you cant even take care of yourself.Do I smell a scam?I am practicing to be a snowbird when I grow up and, consequently, spend much time in the area. I had an occasion in the past, when meeting four women friends for an afternoon of shopping and lunch in another town of nearly having my auto towed away. Although the lot was nearly empty the driver was just about to hook a tow under the front end of my vehicle. He already had a car on the flatbed. Well, he was confronted with five former N ew York women all with cell phones. He seemed to be trying to get money out of us to leave the car alone. When one said she was calling the sheriff, he decided to leave. I began to smell a scam. The next time I was in the Treasure Coast Mall, I stopped in the Sheriffs outpost there and asked. They seemed not to know any law or policy about parking in large areas like these. Nor were they culling for autos with out of state plates for the retrieval and towing fees incurred. W ell this does not sit well with me. I belong to a bicycle club on Long Island and we usually meet in shopping centers, depending on the ride's destination. I believe the theory of the owners if that it looks more prosperous the more cars in the lot. We always park far away from where most customers want to be as do other groups who meet for their purposes of ride sharing. Good Business! Along Long Island's major thoroughfares there are "Park and Ride" lots for commuters who share driving. Y esterday (a rainy Sunday) I met a friend at the P ublix/Beall's shopping center on U.S. 1 and Cove Road, but she was leery since a little sign newly posted was at the entrance regarding tow away. We drove in separate cars to and from the movie in Jupiter. I now more than ever think there is a 'cottage industry' here which preys on unsuspecting vacationers, snowbirds, etc. This would be a practice which would certainly have a negative impact on the county sort of like the old but notorious speed traps in Georgia, for example. C an someone direct me to where ride shares might take place without danger of tow? I am looking to become a permanent resident and would like to know where I might safely leave my car in the future. Perhaps a big chain store would realize the good will (and increased business) they would receive by announcing a welcome to car poolers. I also read of all the gas guzzling blamed on drivers. What is a driver to do if not park somewhere and share a ri de? Perhaps the county fathers can solve this dilemma.Curbing the golf cartsThe rave is to the manager and personnel at the Winn D ixie Store on Route 1 just outside Barefoot Bay. The store recently put up signs forbidding the parking of golf carts on the sidewalk in front of the store. Y ou would think that it would not be necessary, that common sense and good manners would cause people to park in the parking lot, but that doesn't happen. If you have ever shopped at the store then you have played "dodge the golf cart" either driving down the sidewalk or parked blocking the door. If the cart drivers drove their car to the store they would park in the parking lot without thinking about it. But put the same people in a golf cart and they think the rules do not apply to them. Once again, a "job well done" to the store. Now if the sheriffs department would ticket those golf carts driving on the sidewalk on Micco Road.Sounding off on welfare recipientsLets see who wants to pay for other lazy peoples life style? Who wants to give their hard-earned money to people who dont want to work? Who wants to support women who want to get pregnant just so they can catch a free ride on the welfare wagon? Yes, those who have more than one child but dont work to support the kids youre producing. Y ou know who you are. Anyway, who wants to support those individuals? Not me or anyone one else with good morals. Take a look at the history of it socialism doesnt work. If people cant support themselves then they have their own problems. Hard working people or successful business people shouldnt have to bear that. Next election time, vote for the person who believes in individual independence. Its not anyones fault that others mismanaged their life. And especially those who knowingly have more than one child and nearly no education but use the welfare system as their source of income. Or what I should say, they use a human life as a tool to get into the terribly misused social services for a paycheck.

Although he didnt make the record, he did row for 22-hours for a total of 140,068 meters or 87.2 miles, a personal best record by any account.Cliff Partlow staff photographer Ir emember when I got my first laptop back in the 1990s, how wonderful life as going to be I imagined how easy it would be when someone called while I was on the r oad, I could just open the cover, tap a few keys and have all the information I needed at my fingertips. I also recall a failed experiment with Via V oice (IBMs voice r ecognition software) where I tried in vain to write my column by speaking into the laptops microphone. The reality, unfortunately, came nowhere near the fantasy. F irst of all that old laptop of mine weighed a ton. I had one of those carry bags with the wheels and a handle that pulled out and dragged it behind me everywhere I went but that wasnt really the worst part. I mean carrying tools around is always part of a r oad warriors lifestyle; at least this thing had wheels! No, the big problem was how long the darn thing took to turn on. Y ou see with my Day R unner, all I had to do was open the book to the days date and start writing. It even had a little plastic book mark thingy so I could open it to the days date without looking. The only issue I had with the D ay Runner is every couple of months I would r un out of calendar pages and have to go get new ones (which is probably the same problem the M ayans had with their calendar I think they just r an out of pages at 2012 and never refilled). W ith my laptop it was downright embarrassing! Y ou think it takes computers a long time to boot up today? You wouldnt believe how long the wait was 15 years ago. I can clearly remember trying to get into my machine to look someones information up and waiting and waiting and waiting. And dont get me started on the battery life! I learned a v aluable lesson in those days and it was to always keep my power cable handy and be aware of the location of the nearest outlet. (I even had a $30 inverter in my car so I could plug in when I needed to). The battery would always look like it had enough power but, if I wasnt near an outlet then M urphys law would kick in and the battery would die right when I was in the middle of some important task. No the whole using my laptop instead of a Day R unner experiment was a dismal failure. I found myself carrying my Day R unner and lugging my laptop behind me. F ast forward to now and Im very happy to say I love living in the future! Y ou may have noticed these devices called tablets seem to be popping up all over the place and recently I became the proud owner of a new iPad. And with my iPad all of those fantasies of having all of my data at my fingertips that I had in the 90s with my laptop have all come true. The first thing that Ive noticed is that when I press the little button on the bottom of my tablet (the iPad) its on. And I mean instantly. There is no five minute wait for the thing to boot up and when it does wake up I have access to everything. I can access email, my address book and all of my notes that I make while Im working and the clever part is that the notes that I r ead have usually been typed in at my home office on my desktop computer. They just happen to synchronize with my iPad so when Im out in the field, everything that I worked on at my main computer at home is available on my iPad instantly I just turn it onThe luxury of living in the future COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

A rave about the areaI just moved here from up north to escape the cold, harsh winters. Much to my delight are so many lovely r esidents that are welcoming and friendly. It's so r efreshing to live in a beautiful community that thrives. Riding my bike around the area I find so many wonderful places to shop, frolic along the beach or find a great book at the library. All the goodness here is much appreciated including the beautiful weather. Thank y ou!A true southernerO kay, here we go again. Im a true southerner, born and raised in the south. Im not one of these snow birds who move to the south and live here for a couple of y ears then claim to be a southerner. I have to laugh when I go to Publix and watch these snow birds in the parking lot and of course in the store. In the store you have to watch them because they're always in a hurry and believe me they will run y ou over with their shopping cart. I'm thinking their house must be on fire and they have to hurry home to put it out. Now for the parking lot they see someone backing out of a parking space and if they want the space they'll sit and wait, but if not they'll sit and lay down on that horn, and its a wonder they don't give the poor soul backing out a heart-attack. When these snow birds pack up and come south for our nice warm weather and our beaches you would think they would know in the south we take things slow, laid back and enjoy life. It's not good to be in such a r ush. No wonder the doctors office is so full in the winter when they come down. So please don't be so r ude and unfriendly r espect us southern folks. Life is too short to just hurry through it. Just lay back and enjoy our warm weather and of course, the slow moving Southerners. Referring to Racism or notI beg to differ to your reference to Jesus as Satan in disguise. Jesus is God's son and never would even think of being with Satan. From what you say in your rant, y ou seem to imply that you are a black person who has some hatred for white people and want to put them as devils. I suggest that you stop thinking of whites as bad people and look at y ourself. I have worked for almost 40-years with the public and never thought of customers as looking down at me or anyone else that worked with me. You seem to have a problem with white people. Why, I don't understand. You and others that think like you are one of the reasons that racism never stops. I know we are different but still the same. Tr y to see from a different view and you will be surprised. Try to get along with y our customers and I think y ou will see they are no different than you are in many ways. God views all of us the same. Try to be more like H im and Jesus and I think y ou will get a different attitude. I know that all of us have problems in our thinking of things but no one is perfect and never was except for Jesus who was perfect in all ways. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, January 24, 2014 Sebastian River Area A7 TURNING 65?New To Medicare and Confused About Your Options?

My companion and I were in a rush and opted for their take-out menu. The menu is chockfull of delicious choices so it took more than a few minutes to decide. I am very much a creature of habit and decided to go with my usual: the Sashimi and Unazyu Set ($14.95) accompanied by a J.B T emaki ($3.95) and one piece each of the Surf Clam ($1.95) and the Quails Egg ($.50). What can I say Im an adventurous eater! My companion chose the Crab Angels ($5.95) and the P anang Curry Chicken ($8.95) from the Thai side of the menu. We gave our order over the phone to the friendly waitress and within 20 minutes, our food was ready for pickup. When I got to the r estaurant, I struck up a conversation with a waiting customer and the Itamae (skilled sushi chef) over how uni (sea urchin) should taste and its proper consistency. After having eaten this sea creature at another sushi restaurant, I was not as pleased with it, but the chef urged me to try their sea urchin ($4.95). I ordered a piece of it and was immensely pleased at its creamy consistency and subtle oceanic taste. It truly changed my mind about my future consumption about the sea urchin in general. The chef then explained that he heavily scrutinizes the product that is offered at Siam Orchid and works to command the best quality in every dish. When we came back to the office, we eagerly attacked our lunch. The S ashimi and Unazyu set comes with two pieces of salmon, tuna, and white fish in addition to barbequed eel with rice, two pieces of a California Eel R oll, and a small helping of seaweed salad. Sashimi is defined as a tiny bite size piece of fresh fish, usually See SUSHI, B2 S ebastian S ebastianEntertainmentDining &SECTION B WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM FRIDAY, JAN. 24, 2014V alentines Day celebration comes earlyARIES March 21/April 20Aries, strange forces seem to be working against you, but fortunately you are prepared for anything that comes your way.

served with soy sauce and wasabi. Each slice of fish was expertly cut and prepared, exhibiting a fresh and wholesome taste. No sauce is necessary to enjoy the sashimi one will relish its modest flavor on its own. The California Eel Roll harbors crab, eel, cream cheese, and green onion, lightly fried (tempura). The savory components of the roll melded well together. Evoking a sweet, yet light taste, the barbequed eel graces the r ice and gives a greater texture to the dish as a whole. Gar nished with sesame seeds, the seaweed salad had a crisp, light vinegary taste and served as an appropriate addition. Also of note, the J.B. T emaki (temaki is defined as a cone-shaped hand roll) consisted of fresh salmon, cream cheese, and green onion. The bite-sized chunks of fresh salmon leant themselves superbly to the cream cheese with the green onions adding a veritable bite. Even the seaweed wrapping of which the ingredients were encased gave fresh purpose and definition to the rolls overall completion. The Surf Clam had a meaty, slightly rubbery texture and the Quail E gg was of a rich, yolky consistency (almost akin to eating a normal raw egg, albeit ten times smaller). Both pieces were fitting additions to this fabulous lunch. On the other hand, my companions Crab Angels we re exceptional as well. F our fried, flaky pastries that encapsulated rich cream cheese and fresh crab were a gift from heaven, it seemed. As opposed to the run-of-the-mill Asian restaurant, Siams version of this popular dish offers a spicy yet sweet sauce to go along with each tantalizingly demure pastry. According to Siam Orchid, these four fried crab wontons make an excellent beginning for Thai meals and I couldnt agree more. For the Panang C urry, my companion opted for the chicken version of this dish. The chicken is soaked in coconut milk along with a sweet panang curry sauce: sweet y et savory and while rich, exudes flavor. All together, the dish has addictive qualities and my companion could not stop eating it. All in all, Siam Orchid has the best of both worlds: Thai and Japanese. With their menu being more than five pages long, it may take you a while to choose something but no matter what, you know youll have made the right choice. U nquestionably, the itamae has succeeded in his quest to provide the superior experience in fine Asian cuisine here in Vero Beach.

Ragtime Bob Milne, considered by many to be the best ragtime/boogie-woogie pianist in the world, is back by Iknow, with all this cold w eather the last thing you are probably thinking about is spring. Y ou have to remember that our spring could be just a couple of weeks away. Once we get past January and the first part of February, it is almost time for the peak planting season in Florida. Now is the time to start thinking about what you want to plant and how to add color to your yard. For now, orchids can make for great center pieces or add color to your porch or patio. They are in full bloom at many of your local nurseries right now. When you visit your local nursery if you are like most people, you are always trying to find plants that are colorful and different. The colorful orchid plant certainly meets those criteria. My wife and I have actually become addicted to the fascinating colors and their ov erall beauty. Soon the spring orchid shows will be underway including the one at the Martin County fairgrounds. There, you are certain to add a few new var ieties to your collection. Orchids are truly amazing plants. Many people think that orchids are difficult to grow but actually the opposite is true. Orchids are no more difficult to grow then many flowering annuals. Orchids simply need the basic plant essentials: light, water, fertilizer and air. The flowering cycle of the orchid will va ry from variety to variety but in general, they will bloom from one to four w eeks. Under ideal conditions, up to six weeks is not out of the question. Orchids are unique plants in the fact that they do not grow in soil. In fact, if you try to plant an orchid in soil, it will mean most certain death. Orchids need to be planted in special bark mixes that are specially made for your plants. If you place your orchids outside under a tree, they do not need any planting medium at all. The plants will attach themselves to the tree and obtain all of their nutrients from natural r ainwater and air. This is how orchids grow in the wild. If y ou want to grow a prize Orchid, this is the way to go. F or many people, growing orchids outside is out of the question but you can still grow orchids inside or on a porch with excellent results. If y ou choose to raise your plants inside, find a bright windowsill or an area that is as close to a natural light source as possible. Usually when you purchase your plant, it will already be planted in a container with the appropriate planting medium. However, you may want to transplant your flower in a more decorative pot or it just might need to be put into a larger container. In this case, you can use either an appropriate bark mix or decorative stones. Either of these materials will allow the r oots to stay aerated enough so they will be able to breathe. The roots will also need good drainage. One of orchids worst enemies is too much water. You should water your plants completely about once a week or so. Always allow them to dry before watering again. Do not over water. Once your orchid has bloomed out, the next step is to try to get your plant to rebloom at a later time. In order for orchids to bloom again, they need a 10 degree temperature difference between the day and night temperature. You can either do this by your air conditioning system or placing the plant on a porch where the temperature difference will happen naturally. This trick can mean the difference between a plant that has just green leaves and a plant that will again treat you to a r ainbow of color. Orchids are not heavy feeders but when you do feed them, they will require a special orchid food. Find a mix that is specially made for y our plants. A fertilizer with the numbers 20-10-20 will do an excellent job. Feed your plants once a week with a w eak solution of the fertilizer. Orchids need an ample amount of humidity in order to thrive. If the humidity is below 50 percent in your home, your plants will not do w ell. You can alleviate this problem by running a humidifier near the plant during the normally dry winter months.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, January 24, 2014 Sebastian River Area B5 087225Answers located in Classified Section Well my favorite w eek of the year is here. The week of the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. While you are r eading this, I am working my tail off, traveling up and down aisles of golf equipment, training aides, bags, apparel and more. While I always look forward to this week, this y ear there is a cloud hanging over it. For many, many years now, I have traveled to the show with two of my best friends and colleagues, Dan Shube and M ichael Murphy. This year, M ichael, who is my co-host on the radio, is home ill. Ve ry ill. What was once a celebration and a week of golfing, making new friends and visiting with old, eating out at fine restaurants, smoking cigars, and generally enjoying a guys week away, will be subdued this y ear. There is still, however, work to be done. We will find those elusive stories at the show that the major magazines and news media miss or pass on. Things seem to be picking up a bit the past couple of years, and we are anxious to see if it has continued into 2014. One event that I am pleased to see continue is the Tour Edge Media O uting. This event brings many of us media into town a day early for a day of talking to various manufacturers and enjoying a day playing golf and sampling the latest from Tour Edge and the Exotics line of equipment. We wind up that first day with prizes and awards as w ell as a wonderful meal, all thanks to Tour Edge. This event puts us in the r ight frame of mind for the w eek to come. The second day will be a good measure of how the golf companies view the present economy. The PGA Mer chandise Show Demo Da y, held at Orange County N ational, puts products from a hundred or so companies into our hands. U sing the circular driving r ange at OCN, we get to hit all the clubs we want. We will get to try the latest from nearly every major manufacturer and even some of the little guys. Its a great way to see whats new and how well it works. W ednesday, Thursday and Friday, we will hit the floor of the convention center. There are more than10 miles of aisles for us to walk, and over 1,000 vendors for us to visit. Its here that we do most of our work. This is also where you will likely find your clubs head professional or general manager looking for new products for the pro shop. Shirts and hats will be ordered by the hundreds. Some are even here to look into a new fleet of golf carts, or mowers, or furniture for the clubhouse. If you cant find it here, it likely hasnt been invented y et. The show is a great place for the smaller companies to get the word out about their products. They lack the big money to advertise in major publications, and dont have the staff to visit every club in the country. At the show, the clubs come to them. They have a chance to make their pitch and gain a new client. In the past I have seen some of the major companies walk over and talk with these small guys in an effort to buy the rights to a unique product. While in town were going to be playing some golf as w ell. Well be visiting three courses in the area and will r eport back to you whether or not they are worth a look. The most important thing D an and I plan to do is as often as we can think about our good friend Michael, sitting back home. Its been a fun ride with Michael along, and this year will certainly not be the same. Hopefully we will have some great tales to tell him when we get home. But while were away, we want him to know that we love him and well miss him being with us.
