Cliff Partlow staff photographer Farmer's market startsT aking it down the fieldFELLSMERE Fresh produce, baked goods, farm animals and more will be on the grounds of the O ld Fellsmere School this w eekend for the inaugural F ellsmere Farmer's Market and Mercado. The sales will begin Saturday at 9 a.m. and go through 2 p.m., said coordinator Sara Savage. V endor booths must be r egistered in advance, but there is plenty of space for entrepreneurs to participate, she said. "I f you can make it, bake it or sell it, we have a place for you," said Ms. Savage, also a Fellsmere city councilwoman. S ome of the vendors on the farmer's market side will be selling produce, small farm animals such as ducks goats or chickens, and hand-made or homemade items such as jewelry, jellies, breads and wood carvings. The "mercado" side will be for selling items not made or produced locally, such as sunglasses, hats, belts, make up products or toys, Ms. Savage said. Me r cado is Spanish for market or marketplace. "W e do have some things that are not allowed; no fireworks, pornography, guns and ammunition and anything illegal or r ecalled," she said. A 10-foot by 10-foot vendor space is $15, a mercado space is $20, and a readyto-eat vendor booth is $25. There is an initial application fee of $15 for a business permit valid at the market. The applications are available online at the F ellsmere Farmer's Market and Mercado Facebook group page. The motivating reason for the farmer's market was to provide an outlet for selling the produce grown in the Fellsmere community garden.

In 1990, he was the recipient of the Faculty Development Scholarship and earned a Master of Public Health degree at Johns Hopki ns School of Public Health in 1991.Subsequently, he returned to the AKUH and assumed the position of program director of the Urban Primary care pro gr am in five squatter settlements of Karachi.In 1994, Dr.Lobo immigrated with his family to the U.S.He worked with the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research and later did his residency in Family Medicine at St.Clare's Hospital in Schenectady, N.Y.He worked in the area in upstate New York until 201 2, when he moved to Florida and joined Indian River Medical Center. Dr.Asha Shah, the other physician in the Primary Care office, was a fellow resident at St.Clare's Hospital.She joined IRMC two y ears ago and was very enthusiastic about the care and vision of the organization.This prompted Dr.Lobo to apply to IRMC."Thus far, I believe all my patients are from the In dian River County,"Dr.Lobo said."People who are permanent residents of the area, and many who spend part of the year here and part time in some of the northern states, are pat ients.However in the Walk-in Care office, though, most are from Indian River County." The common cases treated in Primary Care are the chronic health problems of arthritis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a sthma, diabetes, hypertension, h yperlipidemia, and dementia, among others.They also see a fair share of acute respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary infection s and skin problems.The Primary care clinic offers care (preventative and management of acute and chronic illness) to children and adults, including women's health and geriatric care.Minor emergencies are handled in the office. Other emergencies are referred to the hospital.The office does what is needed to stabilize the patient while waiting for the em ergency responders to arrive to transport the patient to the hospital.The office uses the Electronic Medical Record for purposes of documentation in patient charts.The EMR allows th e doctors to order laboratory test and imaging studies and review reports, communicate electronically with pharmacies for ordering and refilling medication, and facilitate re f errals to medical specialists. Preventive care is very important and there is much the patient can do to keep healthy such as eating a healthy diet and exerci sing regularly.In Florida, due to sun exposure, Dr.Lobo overemphasizes the importance of using sunscreen.Attention to regular cancer screening tests like colonos copy, mammogram, and pap smears are also important.Acute illness will require medical attention.Overuse of antibiotics and drug resistance is becomi ng a tremendous problem, and residents should educate themselves that not all infectious processes need antibiotics to achieve a cure. Along with Dr.Lobo and Dr.Shah, the clinic has three support staff.Dr.Lobo also works in the Walk-in Care clinic on a rotation basis with three other physicians.The Walk-in Care clinic has an office manager, five support staff and a pharmacist who runs the Coumadin clinic.Dr.L obo's office is located at 1960 P ointe West Dr., Suite No.101, Vero Beach.Hours of operation are 8 a.m.to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.The Pointe West Walk-in Care located next door at 1960 Pointe West Dr., Suite No.102, Vero Beach, has hours of operation 8 a.m.to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m.thro ugh 5 p.m.on Saturday.

y ears this December with two daughters and two grandchildren. Pr evious public service: Elected to Sebastian City C ouncil in 2008 and 2010, mayor for 2009 and 2010 Q: W hat were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the city council this election cycle? A: I believe I was a very effective member of Sebastian Ciy Council and enjoyed my two terms on the board. H ad I not run for Congress last year, I would have run again for city council.As the only retired member of council I had more time to put into the duties of mayor and look forward to contributing again should I be elected this year. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: The two top issues for the Sebastian City Council to address are:No. 1, the condition of the Indian River Lagoon, and No. 2, future annexations to the city. On the lagoon, we first need to diagnose the underlying problem with the lagoon and find out why we 'v e lost so much seagrass. I would like to see the city put out at least two sensors to identify pollutants at outfalls and the mouth of the St. S ebastian River.Until such time as we can determine the causes of the problem, we can't fix it.Is the problem fertilizer run off, or is it r elated to septic tanks? The second most important topic is future annexations to the city.Sebastian has very little commercial and industrial property left because of the countyconservation area behind S ebastian City Hall.That land was originally designedto be our commercial/industrial corridor and now it's never going to be developed. All the land south of Country Road 512 on U.S. 1 is county-owned right up until y ou get to Publix where Barber Street intersects.This will get developed eventually and I would like it to be in the city so we can take some of the tax pressure off our r esidents. These areas will be serviced by our city whether anyfuture taxes come to us or not.The city should be looking at future annexation of some of this property and be pro-active in working with property owners who desire to be included in our great city. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastian's interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: For the most part Sebastian city government has a good relationship with local business owners.Our community redevelopment agency has helped dozens of small businesses update their signs and landscaping with grants of up to 80 percent of the cost of improvements.I would like to see us host a business owners workshop once a year to get input directly from the business community as to how the city can serve them better. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some "treasures"in S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: For me, the city of S ebastian is the treasure in the Treasure Coast.We don't have high rise condos to block the beautiful view of the Indian River Lagoon, we don't have traffic congestion like other cities do, we have easy access to beaches, the inlet, our own municipal golf course, numerous parks and conservation areas, and four festivals a year to show it all off! Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: What makes me the best candidate for the job is my previous track record.As mayor, I helped secure $2 million federal dollars to pave Barber Street.I was also very active in the Treasure Coast region as president of the Treasure Coast R egional League of Cities, chairman of the Treasure C oast Council of Local Governments, (A board made up from cities, counties, and school boards from four counties).I was also elected chairman of the Indian River County metropolitan planning organization.I served on the board of directors of the Florida League of Cities and for my last year was chosen to serve on their executive board. B eing retired, I was able to r eally work more of a full time schedule as mayor for two years and as council member for the last term. N ame: Andrea B.Coy C ontact information : A ddress: 501 Palm Avenue, S ebastian, Fla., 32958; phone: (772) 388-0961 F amily: Donut hound and Floyd the Boyd parrot Pr evious public office held: Elected to Sebastian City C ouncil, 2005-13; served as mayor from2007-09. Q: W hat were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the city council this election cycle? A: Sebastian residents have been encouraging me to run again throughout the past year. I enjoy what I do and I have gained a reputation for being fair and equitable during the decision making process. During these extremely tough economic times, Sebastian needs level-headed, responsible citizens at the helm. As a retired U.S. Army Master Se r geant and 16-year resident of Sebastian with a master's degree in education from Penn State University, I believe I can continue to make positive and effective contributions to our community. As mayor, I worked very hard for almost two years to bring Indian River State College to Sebastian. Last year I dedicated three months of my life to re-furbishing, furnishing, and opening the S enior Activity Center. I have established a reputation for being able to get things done and I'm not done yet. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: Issue One HEALTH OF THE LAGOON! O ur most precious r esource and commodity is dying. It's not dying from natural causes, it's dying from human causes. N itrogen has been identified as a major cause leading to algae blooms. Two sources have been identified as problematic. The major source is from our prolific septic systems throughout the county. To r eplace these antiquated systems with sewer connections and treatment is a very expensive proposition, but it must be done. We need emergency funding help from federal and state sources to get this massive process started. Another source of nitrogen comes from fertilizer. H omeowners who apply chemicals to their lawns, whether themselves or through contracted service providers, need to look closely at what is in the application and when it is being applied. Common sense should prevail here and I believe the need for a healthy lagoon far outw eighs the need for a perfect lawn. I ssue Two Maintaining high quality levels of service to the Sebastian public has become increasingly more difficult as we have downsized during the economic crisis. O ur staff is cut to rock bottom and there is no more to cut. As we slowly climb out of this hole, we need to slowly reinstate a few of the staff positions to restore our service quality. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastian's interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: The city of Sebastian has an exceptional chamber of commerce with an excellent r ecord of service to the local business community. The chamber and the city work closely on large improvement projects like the Main St r eet boat ramp and intersection, the Working Waterfront project, and lowering the speed limit on U.S. 1 that benefit the overall appearance of our business district. The city also partners with the chamber to provide concerts in the park. S ebastian also has an excellent faade, sign and landscape program that has helped numerous new and existing businesses improve their look with grant money from the city. O ur community development director, Joe Griffin, and his staff are very r esponsive to business r equests as they seek solutions to every day issues and needs. All in all, Sebastian has a great relationship with local businesses, but we are always looking for ways to improve our service ideas w elcome. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some "treasures"in S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: Sebastian truly is a special place on the Treasure C oast. We have worked very hard to maintain the quaint fishing village look and feel. One would never guess that we are the largest municipality in Indian River County. M uch of our charm is evident in Riverview Park and the riverfront area. Building height limits adjacent to the lagoon are restricted to 25 feet. We enjoy our waterfront and want to be able to see it. Elsewhere in Sebastian, building height is limited to 35 feet. Having no high rises blocking the view, helps preserve the small-town village look. An equally important S ebastian asset is our residents and business owners. I have never met more open-hearted and giving people anywhere. When something needs to be done, we don't wait for outside help. Our local residents, businesses, and nonprofits will rally to fill the need. The senior center is a classic example. Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: Over the past eight years of service to the community, I have reached out and participated in a wide-variety of groups and organizations. I currently belong to seven local non-profit organizations: Sebastian Lion's Club, Sebastian GFWC Ju niors, Veterans of Foreign W ars Post #10210, American Legion Post #189, Sebastian Pr operty Owners Association, Senior Activity Center, and the North County Hu nger Relief Coalition. This past year I raised more than $12,000 in donations for our local non-profits. I am easily accessible by phone 388-0961 and will r eturn calls and emails. M any folks know who I am and feel comfortable approaching me while outand-about with their issues. My supporters know that a vote for Andrea B. Coy is a vote for leadership and integrity they can trust. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 27, 2013 Sebastian River Area A3 076586Sebastian772-589-9166V ero Beach772-569-5187Ft.

N ame: D on Wright C ontact information: P hone, (772) 913-4720 F amily: Married 45 years to spouse Beverly, children and grandchildren Pr evious public office held: currently vice mayor of S ebastian; finishing my second term in office. Q: W hat were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the city council this election cycle? A: We have had four years of declining revenue. Looking forward we will need to determine different ways to allocate hopefully an increased amount of revenue. This will need to be used to make up for items that have been deferred and postponed and spending will need to still be limited to what is needed. So continuing to focus on budgeting and spending is my first priority and secondly, the Indian River lagoon is in trouble and Sebastian needs to work on areas important to the city. This can be divided up into four areas including r esearch, remediation, r estoration and regulation. I would like to have workshops and forums in Sebastian to develop a consensus for moving forward. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: No. 1: Our computer system has become obsolete. Major funding is needed to fix this problem and initial estimates are more than $250,000. I am closely watching this process and want to make certain that the fix will serve the city both immediately and long term. No. 2. The problems with the Indian River Lagoon need to be addressed as the lagoon is a key element on the quality of life and economic growth in Sebastian. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastian's interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: The city generally works w ell with business owners and has completed major projects including improvements to the community r edevelopment agency district and U.S. 1. Also, we are in process of having the speed limit on U.S. 1 reduced to 35 miles per hour which should improve accessibility, visibility and safety for customers and business owners. And, we are about to start significant improvements to the "presidential" streets in the community r edevelopment agency district which will provide more parking and smooth surfaces and improve drainage. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some "treasures"in S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: No. 1: The city's location on the Indian River Lagoon; No 2: The working waterfront and commercial fishing; No. 3, Our entertainment and dining areas on or near the lagoon; No. 4. Two boat ramps which provide adequate parking for easy access to the Lagoon and O cean; No. 5: Pelican Island N ational Wildlife Refuge; No 6: The Sebastian Inlet being so close; No. 7: The large amount of conservation and park space; No. 8: The residential single-family dwelling nature of our community; No. 9: Special events and community spirit. Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: Background as a two term council member but before being elected many y ears of serving as a volunteer on committees including as chairman of the parks and recreation committee, chairman of the North C ounty economic development committee, serving as a director of the Sebastian River Area Chamber of C ommerce, representing the city on the metropolitan planning organization citiz ens advisory committee, serving on the county economic development committee, and having been a member of the Indian River C ounty Chamber of Commerce while working in Vero B each. These and other volunteer efforts were over a six-year period before I first ran for office. My business background as a business owner, president of a large insurance brokerage firm middle management positions with a large insurance company over a career of 45 y ears have provided me with the background and experience to use some private business techniques to assist the city in budgeting, planning, management structure, resource allocation and problem solving.

The current council is a terrific group of individuals who collectively function very well. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: Ensuring that Sebastian continues doing all it can r esponsibly do using scientific data to protect our Indian River Lagoon. Encouraging businesses and homes along the riverfront to connect to existing sewer lines through our grant program as well as work with Indian River C ounty to extend sewer throughout our riverfront district. K eeping Sebastian taxes low while maintaining the quality of life and level of service that we are accustomed to. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastian's interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: Interaction with our business community has improved over the last few y ears. We have created the position of economic development coordinator who is in place to work with the business community in dealing with rules and regulations within the city. We also work closely with the S ebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce, listening to and reacting to their concerns. Sebastian has truly become a "Business Friendly" community, however, we are always open to suggestions that would make it easier to be successful owning a business here. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some "treasures"in S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: One is definitely the people. We have the friendliest and I believe the most caring citizens in Florida. All y ou need to do to experience this is take a walk along our scenic riverfront or visit one of our many outstanding parks in the city. These are what make Sebastian such a special place to live. Q:What makes you the best candidate for the job? A: Preparation and foresight. My background is in child abuse investigations. As a r esult, you can rest assure that I will do all the homework involving any issue to include researching both sides of any argument to come to the best resolution for the citizens of Sebastian. I will also be thinking about what could possibly go wrong with any decision and ensuring that all bases are covered. B iography: I was born in Br ooklyn, New York where faith, family and a commitment to service were instilled in me at an early age by my parents. At 18, I enlisted in the U.S. Army where I served as an explosive ordnance disposal technician, rising to the r ank of Sergeant. After the army I graduated from the S tate University of New York at Albany with a bachelor's degree in political science and English. I remained in the Army R eserves for several years and was activated for Operation Desert Storm. For the next decade, I worked in several different capacities which, along with my training in the Army, helped me develop a unique set of leadership and professional skills. In 2001, I began a career with the Florida Department of Children and Families. I started as a child protective investigator and quickly rose through the r anks becoming a supervisor at the Child Advocacy C enter in Brevard County. In J uly 2008 I was promoted to program administrator for all Child Protective In vestigations for Circuit 19; encompassing Indian River, S t. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee Counties. In April 2013 I was promoted to DCF community development administrator for Circuit 19. I serve on many boards throughout the Treasure C oast and Okeechobee. He has been selected as the chair for the Indian River C ounty Metropolitan Planning Organization for the last two years. In 2010 I was selected to serve on Sebastian's Charter Review Committee. I serve on the Indian River C ounty executive roundtable, the Children's Services advisory committee, the S enior Resource Association's Senior Needs Assessment for Indian River County as well as the Okeechobee executive roundtable and the Martin County Needs Assessment. While on the Council, I have continued to advocate for domestic violence awareness as well as foster care, adoption, and the G uardian Ad Litem program.Name: D amien Herman Gilliams C ontact information: P hone, (772) 713-5071, email, D amio@comcast.net w ebsite, www.DamienLovesSebastian.com and www.OSCSCAP.com. F amily:Married with three children, two in college Pr evious public office held:None Q: W hat were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the city council this election cycle? A: I am running again for the Sebastian City Council, after three previously unsuccessful attempts, primarily because Sebastian desperately needs new leadership now during these uncertain and crucial times, not more lip service and cronyism from our current good old boy and girl city council members. Whatever happened to true public service? And why do politicians, especially local office seekers, rush to throw their hats in the r ing at every opportunity? It shouldn't be for power, prestige and personal enrichment. And how long should it take an informed electorate to finally realize the absolute absurdity and futility of allowing their elected officials to continue to do the same idiotic, harebrained, costly and selfserving things year after y ear and expect a different r esult each time? M ost continue to weasel their way onto the dais through fear-mongering and character assassination tactics aimed at me and orchestrated by support organizations like Sebastian Citizens Speak Out, the S ebastian Property Owners Association and the Sebastian River Area Chamber of C ommerce, among others.

Classes will begin Jan. 8, 2014, and applications for the new programs will be accepted beginning Sept.30. "W ith our economy beginning to strengthen and diversify, it's very important that Treasure C oast residents have local access to higher education opportunities that open new doors," said Dr. Edwin R. Massey, IRSC president. The new IRSC Bachelor's D egree program in A ccounting will support new and existing businesses. In fact, the State Board commended the College for meeting an identified statewide and regional need for programs related to accounting and financial services. In addition, our graduates in Health Care M anagement will find leadership positions in a wide r ange of health care facilities. We have experienced a great deal of interest in elementary education and the new degree program will enable Treasure Coast residents to earn their teaching degree locally with many opportunities to develop into highly qualified teachers. IRSC has continued to expand its Bachelor's D egree programs over the past five years and the new offerings reinforce the College's role in development of a flourishing regional economy." Over 70 area employers and community leaders wrote letters to the Florida B oard of Education supporting IRSC's program proposals. M ajor accounting firms throughout the region submitted letters of support stressing the need for local training in this field. "W e have had employees pursue their accounting degree by commuting at night and weekends to colleges outside our Treasure C oast, putting a significant burden on them and their families," said Gerald A. Di Ba r tolometo, Jr. CPA and principal with DiBartolomeo, McBee, Hartley & Ba r nes, P.A. "It is always a great opportunity to hire home grown talent with ties to the local community. We would definitely hire accounting graduates from I ndian River State College." A dministrators of area hospitals and health care facilities indicated they would be eager to hire IRSC graduates with a Bachelor's D egree in Health Care Management. "M artin Health System will open an 80 bed hospital on the Tradition Center for I nnovation campus in D ecember 2013 and estimates hiring 300 to 600 additional employees for the next three years and several hundred more in the next six years," said Mark E. R obitaille, president and CEO of Martin Health Systems. "The Health Care M anagement Baccalaureate D egree Program will add v alue to our current recruitment efforts for a highlyskilled, well-trained workforce. We have a long and congenial relationship with IRSC and highly regard the graduates of its programs." The superintendents of area school districts expressed support of the B achelor's Degree in Elementary Education. The School District of I ndian River County is in full support of the development of the Baccalaureate D egree Program in elementary education so that access to affordable, baccalaureate-level, and postsecondary education in our r egion may continue to grow. This new addition will be very favorably received by our employees, students and the members of the community," said Dr. Fr ances J. Adams, superintendent, School District of I ndian River County. All IRSC Bachelor's degree programs are fully accredited, meet Florida statutory r equirements for Baccalaur eate education and provide a strong foundation for graduate study. The three new programs we re selected based on a needs assessment of student interest, economic development trends, projected job growth and analysis of college resources such as faculty, facilities, libraries and technology. Mo re than 3,500 students are now enrolled in 20 B achelor's Degree programs at IRSC, majoring in fields such as education, nursing, organizational management, biology, digital media and human services. IRSC began offering four-year degree programs in 2008 and 1,271 students have graduated with Bachelor's D egrees since the program's inception.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY This summer, Childcare R esources of Indian River r eceived a grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank to support the organization's mission to provide high quality, affordable childcare to eligible families in Indian River County. The $2,500 grant will help to ensure children r eceive the early education they need to be successful. S tudies show that children provided with quality childcare are more likely to graduate and find employment and are less likely to need remedial education and commit crimes. "W e truly appreciate the generous support from TD Charitable Foundation," says Shannon McGuire Bo wman, executive director of Childcare Resources of Indian River. Grants such as these, as w ell as private gifts, help subsidize childcare for more than 100 children between the ages of six w eeks to five years at the Childcare Resources Education Center and other childcare centers throughout the county. All of the centers are N ational Association for the Education of Young Children accredited or in the process of becoming r e-accredited. The NAEYC program standards and accreditation criteria include clear and measurable educational guidelines.

Homicide connected to large quantity of drugsINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The fatal shooting on S ept. 20 of St. Lucie County r esident, Dwight Snaith, r esulted in a search warrant at the residence where the incident occurred. D etectives were searching for evidence of the homicide and found a large quantity of drugs. U pon service of the search warrant, investigators found the following items; 2 lb. 6oz of marijuana, Estimated street value is $7,600; A pproximately 30 ounces of cocaine and crack cocaine.

The second subject, Tyrell B ennett, who was also shot Fr iday afternoon, was r eleased from Lawnwood on S aturday.

Fu r ther, initial reports noted that Mr. Bennett and Mr. Snaith were in an argument over a woman but detectives now feel that additional subjects may have been involved.

A majority of Florida's tomatoes are grown and harvested in Immokalee by workers whose average household income is less than 20 percent of their affluent neighbors. Those who work in the fields are not protected by the National Labor Relations A ct and the Fair Labor Standards Act. They have no r ight to overtime pay or the r ight to organize and collectively bargain with their employers. They earn poverty-level wages working in the hot sun, exposed to pesticides, and often are subjected to physical, sexual and verbal abuses. The farmworkers are told to r ound off rather than level the 32-lb. buckets they fill with harvested tomatoes, r obbing them of wages because they are paid by the piece. To combat unfair working conditions, in 1993 the laborers formed the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. Mr. Stuart and Ms. Gullberg-McCadden are working to raise awareness of the plight of tomato pickers and to promote the CIW's highly successful Fair Food Program. The Fair Food Program, which has been lauded as one of the most successful and innovative programs by the Presidential Advisory Council, ensures that farmworkers are not exploited. The Program is a partnership between farmworkers, Florida tomato growers and participating buyers that guarantees better wages and working conditions. Growers and corporate purchasers who participate in the program agree to pay an additional penny per pound more to dramatically increase workers' pay. Curr ently, those companies not signed onto the Fair Food Pr ogram pay about 50 cents per 32 lb. bucket. A penny a pound more increases the farmworkers earnings to 82 cents a bucket. Those participating in the program also agree to abide by a human-rights-based Code of Conduct, including zero tolerance for forced labor and sexual assault. Ac r oss the state, 90 percent of Florida growers have implemented the Fair Food Pr ogram. Eleven leading food retailers, such as M cDonald's, Burger King, Chipotle, Whole Foods Market, and Aramark, among others, are cooperating with the program and buy only from farms in compliance with the Program. However, there are still a number of major corporations who have refused to join in.

Is it possible that, in spite of your best efforts to confine your animals to your property, they are escaping to defecate and urinate on other people's property?K eep cats insideThere are too many perils outdoors for cats. There are too many ill meaning people, cat diseases and the like. I ndoor cats live longer and healthier lives. With a little patience, an outdoor cat will adapt to living indoors and becoming an indoor cat. Who is going to help was the posed question. The answer is that the only one to help, or who cares is the actual owner of the cat. The owner can also keep the cat inside so it can be safe from predators, of the human and animal kind, and it can be well supervised.Violence in ChicagoI watched the news and 20 people were shot on streets of Chicago, including a three year old boy. I've heard enough. It got me thinking we need to find a constitutional attorney willing to take on the NRA and find a way to file sanctions that say if the NRA continue to support manufacturing of high capacity magazines and assault weapons in the U.S. we file these sanctions: You will no longer be allowed to make any political contributions to any political official currently in office or running for office in this country, and also you must pay cities and families retributions for cost of adding more law enforcement, families for their losses and whatever else. Also, the U.S. administration must hold NRA accountable for any deaths due to assault weapons. It 's time. Are there any constitutional attorneys willing to take this on? Remember D.C., Columbine, Newtown, Aurora Tuscon and now Chicago. Enough is too muchPut homework firstThere should be no television until the homework is done. Is this the rule at your home? Mo re re teachers are reporting that more students are not doing all of their homework assignments. By not doing the homework, students are frequently unable to take part in the class lesson. Failing to do homework regularly r esults in poor or failing grades. What are parents to do about this growing problem? As a parent, it is almost impossible to know what homework your child is expected to complete. If you ask your child, the most frequent responses will be, "I don't have any" or "I did it in school." So what is a parent to do? As a parent, you need to stay informed. Staying in touch with the teachers will provide you with what is expected of y our child and how he or she is meeting those expectations. So if the teachers have indicated that homework is a problem, what is a parent to do? T ell your child that an hour has been established that will be used for study whether they have homework or not. T ell your child that they can review previous work or drills, straighten their notebook or re-read a chapter. In short, they will use that time to study. As a parent, you need to take charge. You need to establish a routine at home to help your child be successful in school. You need to provide the environment for homework, one that is free from distractions and with basic r esource material at hand. Y ou need to be there, or nearby, to offer assistance, encouragement and monitoring as needed. M ake it a rule in your home. No television until homework is finished. Stop having babies; visit the libraryW ell for those who are having kids just to be on welfare, y ou need to visit the public library and read on history. A be Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower were both republicans and came from dirt poor upbringing's, and look what they created for themselves. And yes, there are many more great people in this nation that rose from poverty. Welfare is not meant to be a way of life. Produce a few kids so you can pay your bills that is just wrong. And what's even worse is the lack of parental guidance the new young lives get, thus creating crime from the poverty there born into. Ye s, so why don't you try and invest into your education instead of finding a guy to get you pregnant and leaving his name off the birth certificate so you can ride the welfare band wagon. The country is hurting enough without adding insult to injury.Blaming overpopulationI am 42 years old and have lived in this area all my life. I r ecently have become unemployed I have been trying to find a job for six months. I have been all over the city looking and then some. My family and I are soon to be homeless. I have never been without a job. It's a shame that due to overpopulation I can't find employment. I can't find anyone to help. I blame the housing market for the decline in jobs. F ear of RussiaI have a great deal of fear for this nation. In 1863, Russia had blockaded our west and east coast to prevent the Br itish from aiding the south against Lincoln and the GAR. And for denying the Bankers loans at 30 percent, he minted his own greenbacks and for this he was assassinated. At 86, the legacy we leave for the young people does not look good or the future looks bloodier than it is. I support the C onstitution and the Bill of rights, that is where my loyalty and patriotism lies and not on the corrupt men who control us. Today we may have to hope that Russia will again help the American people return to peace and the rule of constitutional law.Don't trust the RussiansIt amazes me that first, we allow Vladimir Putin to trash our president and his administration. I didn't realize freedom of speech meant presidents of other countries could bad mouth our president in our most popular new paper. And then, we trust that Putin knows best. Can we really trust him when it comes to a war against Syria? How come all of a sudden Syria is tucking its tail and letting the U.N. know everything about its chemicals of mass destruction? Does no one else think that it's a bit fishy? It smells like communism and traitors. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com.

Ask many users what that "blue e" is on their desktop and more often than not yo u' ll hear something like, "O h, that's my internet," or, that's the internet." While a slightly more seasoned computer user might reply with "that's Internet Explorer, my web browser." O k, so the guy who said it was his web browser is right but what does it matter? What's the benefit of knowing the difference, I mean is it worth the time to even sort out? F or that I would have to say yeah, I think it's worth the time to understanding the difference. You see, I nternet Explorer really isn't the internet any more than y our living room window is the outside." You could say y ou look through Internet Ex plorer and see out into the internet similarly to the way you look through the window to see the outside. Or, you could think of I nternet Explorer as kind of like "TV" for the internets only in Internet Explorer y ou go to different web sites instead of different channels. So if Internet Explorer is just a tool that lets you see the internet then it would stand to reason that there are other programs that will let you do the same thing. And yes, there are other programs that do the same thing, lots of them. There are actually a bunch of different web browsers out there with I nternet Explorer holding the top spot and a program named Mozilla Firefox in the number two slot. Ask someone what that Mo zilla Firefox icon is and y ou may hear something like "Oh, that's my other internet, it's not the same as the other one." And in a way that's right, Fi r efox isn't the same as I nternet Explorer like a M agnavox TV isn't the same as a Sanyo. But the internet that you look at with Firefox is the same internet that you look at with Internet E xplorer. B ut (I know some of you are thinking) why then, if Fi r efox and Internet Explorer both are looking out at the same internet, do I see something totally different when I launch Firefox than I do when I launch Internet E xplorer? The answer to that is simply that the "start page" or "home page" for each program is probably set to different websites. That means you'll see different pages on start up. I know that can cause a ton of confusion so I always try to make sure both Firefox and I nternet Explorer have their start pages set the same. Changing the start page is similar in both programs and only requires a few steps. In Internet Explorer click the Tools pull down menu and then click I nternet Options. A smaller page should open with the General Tab selected. The address you see in the Ho me Page field is the w eb page that is automatically called up when you launch Internet Explorer. This page can be set to any page you want just by typing the web address in this field. M ake a note of the address that is in there and (or highlight the address and hit CTRL+C if you want to get fancy) then open Mozilla Fir efox. Fi r efox has similar controls so look for the T ools Pull down menu and then click Options. Click the "M ain" button and that should show you the start page that Firefox is set to use. Erase what's in the home page field and type in the address that you made aA good way to describe the internet' COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

Waste Management of Treasure Coast offers tips to the community on how to go green when tailgating. "W e love football season and all the festivities surr ounding it, but we like to encourage more green practices that folks often don't think about," said Teresa Chandler, Community Relations of Waste Management of Treasure Coast. Ms. Chandler said there are simple things any fan can do to green a tailgate, like: Knowing what is r ecyclable and what is not. F or instance, glass and plastic bottles, aluminum cans and cardboard are often r ecyclable, but other items like foam cups may not be. U sing your reusable bags for shopping and when bringing items to and from the party. B uying tailgating supplies in bulk and ensuring they're made with recycled content. You'll reduce packaging waste, save money and rest easy knowing that these items can probably be recycled again. P urchasing r eusable and unbreakable cups, dishes, utensils and cloth napkins. If you must buy one-use items, use paper-based plates and cups that are compostable. B r inging reusable water bottles and large thermoses for beverages. B arbecuing with natural products made from environmentally friendly sources or all natural, chemical-free charcoal. M aking your food and beverages from local ingredients. Buying from the community supports the local economy and reduces the emissions and packaging needed for transporting products from greater distances. "W e wish everyone lots of fun this football season and r emind them, no matter what colors their team sports, to think green," Said Ms. Chandler. F or more information, visit www.wm.com.

boondoggles on the part of council members and the city manager, as well as blatant incompetence, misfeasance and possible malfeasance on the part of some. When seated on the dais, I will be the voice of the people and insist on full disclosure and total transparency, like putting the city's checkbook on the internet so everyone can see where the taxpayer's money is being spent. Government in the sunshine at all times. Are you better off today than you were last year, or two years ago, or ten years back? I certainly think not and we can begin to change that for the better with my election! Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: Take your pick! My platform is straightforward and has 10 fundamental common sense planks: No .1: Providing unbiased and forthright public service at a bare minimum (*) or no cost to the taxpayers No 2: Perpetual stewardship in preserving and protecting our little slice of paradise here in Sebastian No 3: Truly representative government where every r esponsible voice is heard, considered and valued No 4: Maximum public safety and security, 365 days a year and 24 hours a day, without exception No 5: Protecting our fragile environment/ecosystem to ensure the best possible quality of life for all No 6: Maintaining the lowest tax rate feasible while providing the highest public services possible No 7: Not just maintaining, but continually upgrading our infrastructure, parks and other public places No 8: Developing all of our economic possibilities and creating outstanding employment opportunities No 9: Continually promoting the unsurpassed beauty, tranquility and majesty of S ebastian to the world No 10: Ensuring that we can pass on to our children a more precious legacy than we we re entrusted with (*) If elected, I would advocate that city council members receive no guaranteed monthly stipend, but just r eimbursement for actual documented expenses incurred in the discharge of their official responsibilities. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastian's interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: Previous city councils have consistently gone out of their way to hinder local business interests instead of working with them to create a strong and healthy business environment that would help stimulate our economy and create good paying employment opportunities for young and old alike. There are numerous positive things that could be done immediately to retain or attract businesses to the S ebastian area, such as: -Reviewing and revising our land development code and eliminating nonessential requirements and r estrictions that inhibit and/or discourage business development -Reducing business fees wherever and whenever possible and shortening application-to-permit processing times that will facilitate quicker implementation for existing businesses and accelerated start-up times for new businesses -Improving downtown and adjacent parking all along U.S. 1 and Indian River Drive from city limit to city limit -Placing a very high priority on the maintenance of r oads and ensuring proper drainage throughout the city -Developing a plan in conjunction with private property owners, business interests and the board of R ealtors, to reverse the trend of diminishing property values -Showcasing Sebastian as a great place to live and work and not just a fun place to visit because of our positioning on the Indian River Lagoon and our access to the Sebastian Inlet -Marketing the quality of our A-rated public and charter schools and nearby universities with their strong emphasis on mathematics, science and engineering, plus Chinese language and biotechnical curriculums; our rapidly developing airport; our municipal golf course; our wonderful neighborhood parks and r ecreational facilities; the abundance of both very affordable and estate type housing; our strategic location just off I-95 in central F lorida and our proximity to the Research Coast, the S pace Coast and international airports in nearby W est Palm Beach, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville; and our excellent overall safety, security and quality of life. Assigning the Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce them a regular item number on the agenda for the City Council meetings and asking them to give a r eport on their activities in promoting Sebastian would be useful Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some "treasures"in S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: I believe everything about Sebastian is unique and special and should be considered a treasure to each and every one of us who is blessed to have the privilege to reside here, and it can only get better with proper selfless city council leadership. It will never be simply about me, but always about what is best for all of us. Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: I honestly believe that I am the best qualified candidate for the job. I am thoroughly familiar with all of the departments and the operations of the City of S ebastian having spent well ov er ten years attending meetings and workshops and serving in many different capacities, including former chairman of the S ebastian code enforcement board, former community redevelopment association board member, former member of waterfront study committee. I have a wealth of valuable knowledge that was painstakingly and meticulously acquired over the past decade. I know all of the players, the essential inner workings of our city government, the systems that are in place and the appropriate procedures that always need to be followed. By diligently working together for the common good, great things can be accomplished. Once elected, I can be effective immediately and I am ready, willing and able to accept this responsibility and be of valuable service to my community as it charts its course for the benefit of the present and all future generations. When on the dais, I will work hard to build a consensus and help create a level playing field where the same rules apply to everyone in our community. civility, comity and mutual r espect will always be the hallmark of my public service, but achieving positive r esults for the citizens of Se bastian will be my constant objective.

Once we get through any potential late season hurricanes, the cooler fall air will start to filter in. If you're trying to decide on what you might want to plant, why not try some roses? R oses are beautiful, flowering plants that r epresent love and friendship. Roses are a perfect addition to your friendly tea garden. These lovely plants are surprisingly easy to grow with some basic TLC. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in w ell-drained soil in a sunny location. If you plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and 18inches deep. P ut a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the root system. The same would apply if you plant your roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your roses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. No w, it's finally time to plant your prize. Carefully r emove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in your prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. No w, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. Y ou are now ready to water in your newly planted rose. Once you have your roses planted and bursting with color, you will need to do some basic maintenance steps in order to keep them lush and colorful. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if y ou prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get rid of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex reigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases but also controls insect infestation as well. If y ou are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda. That's right, baking soda. Pl ain ordinary baking soda added at the rate of three teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure but will not work we ll if an infection is present. Be sure not to make y our mix too strong as damage to your roses could r esult. R oses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. You should feed your r oses once a month with a good quality commercial r ose food. Always follow label directions carefully. Also, please do not put y our plants in the line of fire of your sprinkler systems as this keeps your leaves wet which can cause some of the fungus diseases described above.

S ometimes, nine holes is just right. Throw in beautiful views and a breeze off the ocean, and you have a perfect quick round of golf. Where does one go to find just such a treat? My quest took me to Island Dunes C ountry Club on South O cean Drive in Jensen B each. Located about 3.5 miles north of the round-about at Jensen Beach B oulevard and State Road A1A, this track offers a nice get-away from the normal. I sland Dunes plays to a par of 31 from four sets of tees and measures from 1,738 yards to 2,126 yards long. There are four par-4s and five par-3s. While there is no driving range at the course, there are a few sets of tees and nets for those wanting to get in a few full swings before heading to the first tee. The first hole may be the most difficult par-3s on the course. Playing anywhere from 113to 170yards and playing due east, you can find yourself hitting anything from a wedge to a middle iron or hybrid depending on how the wind is blowing. One of my buddies r eports that when he plays a second nine the wind sometimes picks up so much in just a couple hours that he has to hit two to three clubs more just to get to the green. The second hole is your first par-4. In addition to being the shortest of the par-4s, this hole also has the widest fairway. If you struggle to get the ball on the fairway here, you need to watch out for the mangroves and wetlands the rest of your round. The third hole is a beautiful par-3. Measuring just 106 yards from the back, there is no excuse for missing the green here. If y ou do, you will find a challenging pitch or chip or bunker shot to a severely sloped green. After a couple more par3s and a short par-4, you come to the most challenging par-4 on the course, the 360-yard seventh. You tee shot here must hug the left side of the fairway or you will be blocked out and forced to hit a blind approach to a small green. Also, the longer your drive is, the narrower the fairway becomes and you become more likely to find a bunker or waste area. If you miss this green, you are better off if your ball lands left or short of the green. The par-3 eighth is Island D unes signature hole, and it is beautiful. In fact, the r ide along the raised wooden bridge through the mangroves to the tee is soothing by itself. P laying to 145yards from the back tees, your tee shot must carry the mangroves and wetlands and land on a green that is only about 45feet deep with the Indian River sitting behind. It's an intimidating shot, as you have to take in the wind, the carry over the hazard, and yet try not to hit the ball onto the beach beyond. The finishing hole is a beautiful, but frightfully narrow, 353-yard par-4 that r uns along the river. The more you hug the river side of the fairway, the better y our angle will be for your approach. A quirky feature of this hole is a short "G r een Monster" wall that r uns along the mangroves down the right side as you near the green. If you hit y our tee shot far enough, y ou can play the carom and find your ball back in the fairway with a short w edge to a well-protected green. I sland Dunes may not have monster yardage to intimidate the best players, but it does have very undulating greens and some narrow areas that will penalize wayward shots. B est of all, it's an easy course to walk, and with the breeze off the ocean or the river, it's a pleasurable way to enjoy a round. There is also public beach access just a few hundred yards away, so you can drop off the non-golfers for some beach time while you get in a quick nine.

I t's as simple as just picking up your phone and gathering your gear. Within a few moments, you can be on the line with Brandon Mc K ay or Lynne Andrews, tournament directors, and y ou'll begin to understand why Budget Bass has so many folks fishing the tournament. B udget Bass began in 2010 and we can thank Mr. Mc K ay and Ms. Andrews for making it the fastest growing competition around. They keep it fair by disallowing any judges from entering, as well as keeping it safe, fair and competitive. The name Budget' makes it clear what they had in mind when starting the tournament. They follow C oast Guard regulations for safety and to keep it within budget, the monies collected for each competition is awarded for that day(s) when all the bass are weig hed. The format for placing is the two largest bass (within limit) take Large Fish Prizes and then the first, second and third heaviest strings of fish that don't exceed the numerical limit. Due to the nominal cost of entry, you can make a real winning if y ou do well enough. M ost of the tournaments are fished out of Lake O keechobee and typically consist of at least 20 boats on the second and fourth S undays of the month. Boat launching order is determined when you pay your entry fee in order of first come, first serve. It keeps the launchings easy, safe and quick. All in all, Budget Bass T ournaments consist of good group of guys and gals. A great group of 'fisher people'some good, some better and some lucky! Whichever category you fit in, there is always room to learn and improve, which can be done at the two larger tournaments: Spring and Fall Classic. D ifferent lakes are chosen for these two tournaments and after prizes and awards are distributed there is a great dinner served. There is a criterion to be met of fishing at least six of the 11 r egular events during the season in order to enter. F or more information: B udgetbasstour.com. No w, go catch a Big 'un!

I f you can make it, bake it or sell it, we have a place for you, said Ms. Savage, also a Fellsmere city councilwoman. S ome of the vendors on the farmers market side will be selling produce, small farm animals such as ducks goats or chickens, and hand-made or homemade items such as jewelry, jellies, breads and wood carvings. The mercado side will be for selling items not made or produced locally, such as sunglasses, hats, belts, make up products or toys, Ms. Savage said. Me r cado is Spanish for market or marketplace.

A 10-foot by 10-foot vendor space is $15, a mercado space is $20, and a readyto-eat vendor booth is $25. There is an initial application fee of $15 for a business permit valid at the market. The applications are available online at the F ellsmere Farmers Market and Mercado Facebook group page.

Dr.Asha Shah, the other physician in the Primary Care office, was a fellow resident at St.Clares Hospital.She joined IRMC two y ears ago and was very enthusiastic about the care and vision of the organization.This prompted Dr.Lobo to apply to IRMC.Thus far, I believe all my patients are from the Indian River County,Dr.Lobo said.People who are permanent residents of the area, and many who spend part of the year here and part time in some of the northern states, are patients.However in the Walk-in Care office, though, most are from Indian River County. The common cases treated in Primary Care are the chronic health problems of arthritis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, h yperlipidemia, and dementia, among others.They also see a fair share of acute respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary infections and skin problems.The Primary care clinic offers care (preventative and management of acute and chronic illness) to children and adults, including womens health and geriatric care.Minor emergencies are handled in the office. Other emergencies are referred to the hospital.The office does what is needed to stabilize the patient while waiting for the emergency responders to arrive to transport the patient to the hospital.The office uses the Electronic Medical Record for purposes of documentation in patient charts.The EMR allows the doctors to order laboratory test and imaging studies and review reports, communicate electronically with pharmacies for ordering and refilling medication, and facilitate re f errals to medical specialists. Preventive care is very important and there is much the patient can do to keep healthy such as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly.In Florida, due to sun exposure, Dr.Lobo overemphasizes the importance of using sunscreen.Attention to regular cancer screening tests like colonoscopy, mammogram, and pap smears are also important.Acute illness will require medical attention.Overuse of antibiotics and drug resistance is becoming a tremendous problem, and residents should educate themselves that not all infectious processes need antibiotics to achieve a cure. Along with Dr.Lobo and Dr.Shah, the clinic has three support staff.Dr.Lobo also works in the Walk-in Care clinic on a rotation basis with three other physicians.The Walk-in Care clinic has an office manager, five support staff and a pharmacist who runs the Coumadin clinic.Dr.Lobos office is located at 1960 P ointe West Dr., Suite No.101, Vero Beach.Hours of operation are 8 a.m.to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.The Pointe West Walk-in Care located next door at 1960 Pointe West Dr., Suite No.102, Vero Beach, has hours of operation 8 a.m.to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m.through 5 p.m.on Saturday.

y ears this December with two daughters and two grandchildren. Pr evious public service: Elected to Sebastian City C ouncil in 2008 and 2010, mayor for 2009 and 2010 Q: W hat were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the city council this election cycle? A: I believe I was a very effective member of Sebastian Ciy Council and enjoyed my two terms on the board. H ad I not run for Congress last year, I would have run again for city council.As the only retired member of council I had more time to put into the duties of mayor and look forward to contributing again should I be elected this year. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: The two top issues for the Sebastian City Council to address are:No. 1, the condition of the Indian River Lagoon, and No. 2, future annexations to the city. On the lagoon, we first need to diagnose the underlying problem with the lagoon and find out why we v e lost so much seagrass. I would like to see the city put out at least two sensors to identify pollutants at outfalls and the mouth of the St. S ebastian River.Until such time as we can determine the causes of the problem, we cant fix it.Is the problem fertilizer run off, or is it r elated to septic tanks? The second most important topic is future annexations to the city.Sebastian has very little commercial and industrial property left because of the countyconservation area behind S ebastian City Hall.That land was originally designedto be our commercial/industrial corridor and now its never going to be developed. All the land south of Country Road 512 on U.S. 1 is county-owned right up until y ou get to Publix where Barber Street intersects.This will get developed eventually and I would like it to be in the city so we can take some of the tax pressure off our r esidents. These areas will be serviced by our city whether anyfuture taxes come to us or not.The city should be looking at future annexation of some of this property and be pro-active in working with property owners who desire to be included in our great city. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastians interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: For the most part Sebastian city government has a good relationship with local business owners.Our community redevelopment agency has helped dozens of small businesses update their signs and landscaping with grants of up to 80 percent of the cost of improvements.I would like to see us host a business owners workshop once a year to get input directly from the business community as to how the city can serve them better. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some treasuresin S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: For me, the city of S ebastian is the treasure in the Treasure Coast.We dont have high rise condos to block the beautiful view of the Indian River Lagoon, we dont have traffic congestion like other cities do, we have easy access to beaches, the inlet, our own municipal golf course, numerous parks and conservation areas, and four festivals a year to show it all off! Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: What makes me the best candidate for the job is my previous track record.As mayor, I helped secure $2 million federal dollars to pave Barber Street.I was also very active in the Treasure Coast region as president of the Treasure Coast R egional League of Cities, chairman of the Treasure C oast Council of Local Governments, (A board made up from cities, counties, and school boards from four counties).I was also elected chairman of the Indian River County metropolitan planning organization.I served on the board of directors of the Florida League of Cities and for my last year was chosen to serve on their executive board. B eing retired, I was able to r eally work more of a full time schedule as mayor for two years and as council member for the last term. N ame: Andrea B.Coy C ontact information: A ddress: 501 Palm Avenue, S ebastian, Fla., 32958; phone: (772) 388-0961 F amily: Donut hound and Floyd the Boyd parrot Pr evious public office held: Elected to Sebastian City C ouncil, 2005-13; served as mayor from2007-09. Q: W hat were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the city council this election cycle? A: Sebastian residents have been encouraging me to run again throughout the past year. I enjoy what I do and I have gained a reputation for being fair and equitable during the decision making process. During these extremely tough economic times, Sebastian needs level-headed, responsible citizens at the helm. As a retired U.S. Army Master Ser geant and 16-year resident of Sebastian with a masters degree in education from Penn State University, I believe I can continue to make positive and effective contributions to our community. As mayor, I worked very hard for almost two years to bring Indian River State College to Sebastian. Last year I dedicated three months of my life to re-furbishing, furnishing, and opening the S enior Activity Center. I have established a reputation for being able to get things done and Im not done yet. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: Issue One HEALTH OF THE LAGOON! O ur most precious r esource and commodity is dying. Its not dying from natural causes, its dying from human causes. N itrogen has been identified as a major cause leading to algae blooms. Two sources have been identified as problematic. The major source is from our prolific septic systems throughout the county. To r eplace these antiquated systems with sewer connections and treatment is a very expensive proposition, but it must be done. We need emergency funding help from federal and state sources to get this massive process started. Another source of nitrogen comes from fertilizer. H omeowners who apply chemicals to their lawns, whether themselves or through contracted service providers, need to look closely at what is in the application and when it is being applied. Common sense should prevail here and I believe the need for a healthy lagoon far outw eighs the need for a perfect lawn. I ssue Two Maintaining high quality levels of service to the Sebastian public has become increasingly more difficult as we have downsized during the economic crisis. O ur staff is cut to rock bottom and there is no more to cut. As we slowly climb out of this hole, we need to slowly reinstate a few of the staff positions to restore our service quality. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastians interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: The city of Sebastian has an exceptional chamber of commerce with an excellent r ecord of service to the local business community. The chamber and the city work closely on large improvement projects like the Main Str eet boat ramp and intersection, the Working Waterfront project, and lowering the speed limit on U.S. 1 that benefit the overall appearance of our business district. The city also partners with the chamber to provide concerts in the park. S ebastian also has an excellent faade, sign and landscape program that has helped numerous new and existing businesses improve their look with grant money from the city. O ur community development director, Joe Griffin, and his staff are very r esponsive to business r equests as they seek solutions to every day issues and needs. All in all, Sebastian has a great relationship with local businesses, but we are always looking for ways to improve our service ideas w elcome. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some treasuresin S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: Sebastian truly is a special place on the Treasure C oast. We have worked very hard to maintain the quaint fishing village look and feel. One would never guess that we are the largest municipality in Indian River County. M uch of our charm is evident in Riverview Park and the riverfront area. Building height limits adjacent to the lagoon are restricted to 25 feet. We enjoy our waterfront and want to be able to see it. Elsewhere in Sebastian, building height is limited to 35 feet. Having no high rises blocking the view, helps preserve the small-town village look. An equally important S ebastian asset is our residents and business owners. I have never met more open-hearted and giving people anywhere. When something needs to be done, we dont wait for outside help. Our local residents, businesses, and nonprofits will rally to fill the need. The senior center is a classic example. Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: Over the past eight years of service to the community, I have reached out and participated in a wide-variety of groups and organizations. I currently belong to seven local non-profit organizations: Sebastian Lions Club, Sebastian GFWC Ju niors, Veterans of Foreign W ars Post #10210, American Legion Post #189, Sebastian Pr operty Owners Association, Senior Activity Center, and the North County Hu nger Relief Coalition. This past year I raised more than $12,000 in donations for our local non-profits. I am easily accessible by phone 388-0961 and will r eturn calls and emails. M any folks know who I am and feel comfortable approaching me while outand-about with their issues. My supporters know that a vote for Andrea B. Coy is a vote for leadership and integrity they can trust. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 27, 2013 Sebastian River Area A3 076586Sebastian772-589-9166V ero Beach772-569-5187Ft.

Q: W hat were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the city council this election cycle? A: We have had four years of declining revenue. Looking forward we will need to determine different ways to allocate hopefully an increased amount of revenue. This will need to be used to make up for items that have been deferred and postponed and spending will need to still be limited to what is needed. So continuing to focus on budgeting and spending is my first priority and secondly, the Indian River lagoon is in trouble and Sebastian needs to work on areas important to the city. This can be divided up into four areas including r esearch, remediation, r estoration and regulation. I would like to have workshops and forums in Sebastian to develop a consensus for moving forward. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: No. 1: Our computer system has become obsolete. Major funding is needed to fix this problem and initial estimates are more than $250,000. I am closely watching this process and want to make certain that the fix will serve the city both immediately and long term. No. 2. The problems with the Indian River Lagoon need to be addressed as the lagoon is a key element on the quality of life and economic growth in Sebastian. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastians interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: The city generally works w ell with business owners and has completed major projects including improvements to the community r edevelopment agency district and U.S. 1. Also, we are in process of having the speed limit on U.S. 1 reduced to 35 miles per hour which should improve accessibility, visibility and safety for customers and business owners. And, we are about to start significant improvements to the presidential streets in the community r edevelopment agency district which will provide more parking and smooth surfaces and improve drainage. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some treasuresin S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: No. 1: The citys location on the Indian River Lagoon; No 2: The working waterfront and commercial fishing; No. 3, Our entertainment and dining areas on or near the lagoon; No. 4. Two boat ramps which provide adequate parking for easy access to the Lagoon and O cean; No. 5: Pelican Island N ational Wildlife Refuge; No 6: The Sebastian Inlet being so close; No. 7: The large amount of conservation and park space; No. 8: The residential single-family dwelling nature of our community; No. 9: Special events and community spirit. Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: Background as a two term council member but before being elected many y ears of serving as a volunteer on committees including as chairman of the parks and recreation committee, chairman of the North C ounty economic development committee, serving as a director of the Sebastian River Area Chamber of C ommerce, representing the city on the metropolitan planning organization citiz ens advisory committee, serving on the county economic development committee, and having been a member of the Indian River C ounty Chamber of Commerce while working in Vero Beach. These and other volunteer efforts were over a six-year period before I first ran for office. My business background as a business owner, president of a large insurance brokerage firm middle management positions with a large insurance company over a career of 45 y ears have provided me with the background and experience to use some private business techniques to assist the city in budgeting, planning, management structure, resource allocation and problem solving.

The current council is a terrific group of individuals who collectively function very well. Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: Ensuring that Sebastian continues doing all it can r esponsibly do using scientific data to protect our Indian River Lagoon. Encouraging businesses and homes along the riverfront to connect to existing sewer lines through our grant program as well as work with Indian River C ounty to extend sewer throughout our riverfront district. K eeping Sebastian taxes low while maintaining the quality of life and level of service that we are accustomed to. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastians interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: Interaction with our business community has improved over the last few y ears. We have created the position of economic development coordinator who is in place to work with the business community in dealing with rules and regulations within the city. We also work closely with the S ebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce, listening to and reacting to their concerns. Sebastian has truly become a Business Friendly community, however, we are always open to suggestions that would make it easier to be successful owning a business here. Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some treasuresin S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: One is definitely the people. We have the friendliest and I believe the most caring citizens in Florida. All y ou need to do to experience this is take a walk along our scenic riverfront or visit one of our many outstanding parks in the city. These are what make Sebastian such a special place to live. Q:What makes you the best candidate for the job? A: Preparation and foresight. My background is in child abuse investigations. As a r esult, you can rest assure that I will do all the homework involving any issue to include researching both sides of any argument to come to the best resolution for the citizens of Sebastian. I will also be thinking about what could possibly go wrong with any decision and ensuring that all bases are covered. B iography: I was born in Br ooklyn, New York where faith, family and a commitment to service were instilled in me at an early age by my parents. At 18, I enlisted in the U.S. Army where I served as an explosive ordnance disposal technician, rising to the r ank of Sergeant. After the army I graduated from the S tate University of New York at Albany with a bachelors degree in political science and English. I remained in the Army R eserves for several years and was activated for Operation Desert Storm. For the next decade, I worked in several different capacities which, along with my training in the Army, helped me develop a unique set of leadership and professional skills. In 2001, I began a career with the Florida Department of Children and Families. I started as a child protective investigator and quickly rose through the r anks becoming a supervisor at the Child Advocacy C enter in Brevard County. In J uly 2008 I was promoted to program administrator for all Child Protective In vestigations for Circuit 19; encompassing Indian River, S t. L ucie, Martin and Okeechobee Counties. In April 2013 I was promoted to DCF community development administrator for Circuit 19. I serve on many boards throughout the Treasure C oast and Okeechobee. He has been selected as the chair for the Indian River C ounty Metropolitan Planning Organization for the last two years. In 2010 I was selected to serve on Sebastians Charter Review Committee. I serve on the Indian River C ounty executive roundtable, the Childrens Services advisory committee, the S enior Resource Associations Senior Needs Assessment for Indian River County as well as the Okeechobee executive roundtable and the Martin County Needs Assessment.

A: I am running again for the Sebastian City Council, after three previously unsuccessful attempts, primarily because Sebastian desperately needs new leadership now during these uncertain and crucial times, not more lip service and cronyism from our current good old boy and girl city council members. Whatever happened to true public service? And why do politicians, especially local office seekers, rush to throw their hats in the r ing at every opportunity? It shouldnt be for power, prestige and personal enrichment. And how long should it take an informed electorate to finally realize the absolute absurdity and futility of allowing their elected officials to continue to do the same idiotic, harebrained, costly and selfserving things year after y ear and expect a different r esult each time? M ost continue to weasel their way onto the dais through fear-mongering and character assassination tactics aimed at me and orchestrated by support organizations like Sebastian Citizens Speak Out, the S ebastian Property Owners Association and the Sebastian River Area Chamber of C ommerce, among others.

Starting at $ 65 / month 777915College expands bachelor degree programsFORT PIERCE Indian River State College received unanimous approval from the State Board of Education on Sept. 17 to launch new Bachelors Degree programs in accounting, elementary education and health care management, expanding IRSCs baccalaur eate programs to 23. Classes will begin Jan. 8, 2014, and applications for the new programs will be accepted beginning Sept.30. W ith our economy beginning to strengthen and diversify, its very important that Treasure C oast residents have local access to higher education opportunities that open new doors, said Dr. Edwin R. Massey, IRSC president. The new IRSC Bachelors D egree program in A ccounting will support new and existing businesses. In fact, the State Board commended the College for meeting an identified statewide and regional need for programs related to accounting and financial services. In addition, our graduates in Health Care M anagement will find leadership positions in a wide r ange of health care facilities. We have experienced a great deal of interest in elementary education and the new degree program will enable Treasure Coast residents to earn their teaching degree locally with many opportunities to develop into highly qualified teachers. IRSC has continued to expand its Bachelors D egree programs over the past five years and the new offerings reinforce the Colleges role in development of a flourishing regional economy. Over 70 area employers and community leaders wrote letters to the Florida B oard of Education supporting IRSCs program proposals. M ajor accounting firms throughout the region submitted letters of support stressing the need for local training in this field. W e have had employees pursue their accounting degree by commuting at night and weekends to colleges outside our Treasure C oast, putting a significant burden on them and their families, said Gerald A. Di Ba r tolometo, Jr. CPA and principal with DiBartolomeo, McBee, Hartley & Ba r nes, P.A. It is always a great opportunity to hire home grown talent with ties to the local community. We would definitely hire accounting graduates from I ndian River State College. A dministrators of area hospitals and health care facilities indicated they would be eager to hire IRSC graduates with a Bachelors D egree in Health Care Management. M artin Health System will open an 80 bed hospital on the Tradition Center for I nnovation campus in D ecember 2013 and estimates hiring 300 to 600 additional employees for the next three years and several hundred more in the next six years, said Mark E. R obitaille, president and CEO of Martin Health Systems. The Health Care M anagement Baccalaureate D egree Program will add v alue to our current recruitment efforts for a highlyskilled, well-trained workforce. We have a long and congenial relationship with IRSC and highly regard the graduates of its programs. The superintendents of area school districts expressed support of the B achelors Degree in Elementary Education. The School District of I ndian River County is in full support of the development of the Baccalaureate D egree Program in elementary education so that access to affordable, baccalaureate-level, and postsecondary education in our r egion may continue to grow. This new addition will be very favorably received by our employees, students and the members of the community, said Dr. Fr ances J. Adams, superintendent, School District of I ndian River County. All IRSC Bachelors degree programs are fully accredited, meet Florida statutory r equirements for Baccalaur eate education and provide a strong foundation for graduate study. The three new programs we re selected based on a needs assessment of student interest, economic development trends, projected job growth and analysis of college resources such as faculty, facilities, libraries and technology. Mo re than 3,500 students are now enrolled in 20 B achelors Degree programs at IRSC, majoring in fields such as education, nursing, organizational management, biology, digital media and human services. IRSC began offering four-year degree programs in 2008 and 1,271 students have graduated with Bachelors D egrees since the programs inception.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY This summer, Childcare R esources of Indian River r eceived a grant from the TD Charitable Foundation, the charitable giving arm of TD Bank to support the organizations mission to provide high quality, affordable childcare to eligible families in Indian River County. The $2,500 grant will help to ensure children r eceive the early education they need to be successful. S tudies show that children provided with quality childcare are more likely to graduate and find employment and are less likely to need remedial education and commit crimes. W e truly appreciate the generous support from TD Charitable Foundation, says Shannon McGuire Bo wman, executive director of Childcare Resources of Indian River. Grants such as these, as w ell as private gifts, help subsidize childcare for more than 100 children between the ages of six w eeks to five years at the Childcare Resources Education Center and other childcare centers throughout the county. All of the centers are N ational Association for the Education of Young Children accredited or in the process of becoming r e-accredited. The NAEYC program standards and accreditation criteria include clear and measurable educational guidelines.

Homicide connected to large quantity of drugsINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The fatal shooting on S ept. 20 of St. Lucie County r esident, Dwight Snaith, r esulted in a search warrant at the residence where the incident occurred. D etectives were searching for evidence of the homicide and found a large quantity of drugs. U pon service of the search warrant, investigators found the following items; 2 lb. 6oz of marijuana, Estimated street value is $7,600; A pproximately 30 ounces of cocaine and crack cocaine.

A majority of Floridas tomatoes are grown and harvested in Immokalee by workers whose average household income is less than 20 percent of their affluent neighbors. Those who work in the fields are not protected by the National Labor Relations A ct and the Fair Labor Standards Act. They have no r ight to overtime pay or the r ight to organize and collectively bargain with their employers. They earn poverty-level wages working in the hot sun, exposed to pesticides, and often are subjected to physical, sexual and verbal abuses. The farmworkers are told to r ound off rather than level the 32-lb. buckets they fill with harvested tomatoes, r obbing them of wages because they are paid by the piece. To combat unfair working conditions, in 1993 the laborers formed the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. Mr. Stuart and Ms. Gullberg-McCadden are working to raise awareness of the plight of tomato pickers and to promote the CIWs highly successful Fair Food Program. The Fair Food Program, which has been lauded as one of the most successful and innovative programs by the Presidential Advisory Council, ensures that farmworkers are not exploited. The Program is a partnership between farmworkers, Florida tomato growers and participating buyers that guarantees better wages and working conditions. Growers and corporate purchasers who participate in the program agree to pay an additional penny per pound more to dramatically increase workers pay. Curr ently, those companies not signed onto the Fair Food Pr ogram pay about 50 cents per 32 lb. bucket. A penny a pound more increases the farmworkers earnings to 82 cents a bucket. Those participating in the program also agree to abide by a human-rights-based Code of Conduct, including zero tolerance for forced labor and sexual assault. Acr oss the state, 90 percent of Florida growers have implemented the Fair Food Pr ogram. Eleven leading food retailers, such as M cDonalds, Burger King, Chipotle, Whole Foods Market, and Aramark, among others, are cooperating with the program and buy only from farms in compliance with the Program. However, there are still a number of major corporations who have refused to join in.

Is it possible that, in spite of your best efforts to confine your animals to your property, they are escaping to defecate and urinate on other peoples property?K eep cats insideThere are too many perils outdoors for cats. There are too many ill meaning people, cat diseases and the like. I ndoor cats live longer and healthier lives. With a little patience, an outdoor cat will adapt to living indoors and becoming an indoor cat. Who is going to help was the posed question. The answer is that the only one to help, or who cares is the actual owner of the cat. The owner can also keep the cat inside so it can be safe from predators, of the human and animal kind, and it can be well supervised.Violence in ChicagoI watched the news and 20 people were shot on streets of Chicago, including a three year old boy. Ive heard enough. It got me thinking we need to find a constitutional attorney willing to take on the NRA and find a way to file sanctions that say if the NRA continue to support manufacturing of high capacity magazines and assault weapons in the U.S. we file these sanctions: You will no longer be allowed to make any political contributions to any political official currently in office or running for office in this country, and also you must pay cities and families retributions for cost of adding more law enforcement, families for their losses and whatever else. Also, the U.S. administration must hold NRA accountable for any deaths due to assault weapons. It s time. Are there any constitutional attorneys willing to take this on? Remember D.C., Columbine, Newtown, Aurora Tuscon and now Chicago. Enough is too muchPut homework firstThere should be no television until the homework is done. Is this the rule at your home? Mo re re teachers are reporting that more students are not doing all of their homework assignments. By not doing the homework, students are frequently unable to take part in the class lesson. Failing to do homework regularly r esults in poor or failing grades. What are parents to do about this growing problem? As a parent, it is almost impossible to know what homework your child is expected to complete. If you ask your child, the most frequent responses will be, I dont have any or I did it in school. So what is a parent to do? As a parent, you need to stay informed. Staying in touch with the teachers will provide you with what is expected of y our child and how he or she is meeting those expectations. So if the teachers have indicated that homework is a problem, what is a parent to do? T ell your child that an hour has been established that will be used for study whether they have homework or not. T ell your child that they can review previous work or drills, straighten their notebook or re-read a chapter. In short, they will use that time to study. As a parent, you need to take charge. You need to establish a routine at home to help your child be successful in school. You need to provide the environment for homework, one that is free from distractions and with basic r esource material at hand. Y ou need to be there, or nearby, to offer assistance, encouragement and monitoring as needed. M ake it a rule in your home. No television until homework is finished. Stop having babies; visit the libraryW ell for those who are having kids just to be on welfare, y ou need to visit the public library and read on history. A be Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower were both republicans and came from dirt poor upbringings, and look what they created for themselves. And yes, there are many more great people in this nation that rose from poverty. Welfare is not meant to be a way of life. Produce a few kids so you can pay your bills that is just wrong. And whats even worse is the lack of parental guidance the new young lives get, thus creating crime from the poverty there born into. Ye s, so why dont you try and invest into your education instead of finding a guy to get you pregnant and leaving his name off the birth certificate so you can ride the welfare band wagon. The country is hurting enough without adding insult to injury.Blaming overpopulationI am 42 years old and have lived in this area all my life. I r ecently have become unemployed I have been trying to find a job for six months. I have been all over the city looking and then some. My family and I are soon to be homeless. I have never been without a job. Its a shame that due to overpopulation I cant find employment. I cant find anyone to help. I blame the housing market for the decline in jobs. F ear of RussiaI have a great deal of fear for this nation. In 1863, Russia had blockaded our west and east coast to prevent the Br itish from aiding the south against Lincoln and the GAR. And for denying the Bankers loans at 30 percent, he minted his own greenbacks and for this he was assassinated. At 86, the legacy we leave for the young people does not look good or the future looks bloodier than it is. I support the C onstitution and the Bill of rights, that is where my loyalty and patriotism lies and not on the corrupt men who control us. Today we may have to hope that Russia will again help the American people return to peace and the rule of constitutional law.Dont trust the RussiansIt amazes me that first, we allow Vladimir Putin to trash our president and his administration. I didnt realize freedom of speech meant presidents of other countries could bad mouth our president in our most popular new paper. And then, we trust that Putin knows best. Can we really trust him when it comes to a war against Syria? How come all of a sudden Syria is tucking its tail and letting the U.N. know everything about its chemicals of mass destruction? Does no one else think that its a bit fishy? It smells like communism and traitors. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Ubiquitous Pr onunciation: \ybi-kw_-t_s\ adjective: existing or being everywhere at the same time : constantly encountered : widespread. If ever there was something worthy of being considered ubiquitous, I would have to say that I nternet Explorer certainly fits that description. Youll find a copy of internet Ex plorer in one form or another on just about every personal computer out there and you may even find a copy on a Mac. Ask many users what that blue e is on their desktop and more often than not yo u ll hear something like, O h, thats my internet, or, thats the internet. While a slightly more seasoned computer user might reply with thats Internet Explorer, my web browser. O k, so the guy who said it was his web browser is right but what does it matter? Whats the benefit of knowing the difference, I mean is it worth the time to even sort out? F or that I would have to say yeah, I think its worth the time to understanding the difference. You see, I nternet Explorer really isnt the internet any more than y our living room window is the outside. You could say y ou look through Internet Ex plorer and see out into the internet similarly to the way you look through the window to see the outside. Or, you could think of I nternet Explorer as kind of like TV for the internets only in Internet Explorer y ou go to different web sites instead of different channels. So if Internet Explorer is just a tool that lets you see the internet then it would stand to reason that there are other programs that will let you do the same thing. And yes, there are other programs that do the same thing, lots of them. There are actually a bunch of different web browsers out there with I nternet Explorer holding the top spot and a program named Mozilla Firefox in the number two slot. Ask someone what that Mo zilla Firefox icon is and y ou may hear something like Oh, thats my other internet, its not the same as the other one. And in a way thats right, Fir efox isnt the same as I nternet Explorer like a M agnavox TV isnt the same as a Sanyo. But the internet that you look at with Firefox is the same internet that you look at with Internet E xplorer. B ut (I know some of you are thinking) why then, if Fir efox and Internet Explorer both are looking out at the same internet, do I see something totally different when I launch Firefox than I do when I launch Internet E xplorer? The answer to that is simply that the start page or home page for each program is probably set to different websites. That means youll see different pages on start up. I know that can cause a ton of confusion so I always try to make sure both Firefox and I nternet Explorer have their start pages set the same. Changing the start page is similar in both programs and only requires a few steps. In Internet Explorer click the Tools pull down menu and then click I nternet Options. A smaller page should open with the General Tab selected. The address you see in the Ho me Page field is the w eb page that is automatically called up when you launch Internet Explorer. This page can be set to any page you want just by typing the web address in this field. M ake a note of the address that is in there and (or highlight the address and hit CTRL+C if you want to get fancy) then open Mozilla Fir efox. Fir efox has similar controls so look for the T ools Pull down menu and then click Options. Click the M ain button and that should show you the start page that Firefox is set to use.

Waste Management of Treasure Coast offers tips to the community on how to go green when tailgating. W e love football season and all the festivities surr ounding it, but we like to encourage more green practices that folks often dont think about, said Teresa Chandler, Community Relations of Waste Management of Treasure Coast. Ms. Chandler said there are simple things any fan can do to green a tailgate, like: Knowing what is r ecyclable and what is not. F or instance, glass and plastic bottles, aluminum cans and cardboard are often r ecyclable, but other items like foam cups may not be. U sing your reusable bags for shopping and when bringing items to and from the party. B uying tailgating supplies in bulk and ensuring theyre made with recycled content. Youll reduce packaging waste, save money and rest easy knowing that these items can probably be recycled again. P urchasing r eusable and unbreakable cups, dishes, utensils and cloth napkins. If you must buy one-use items, use paper-based plates and cups that are compostable. Br inging reusable water bottles and large thermoses for beverages. B arbecuing with natural products made from environmentally friendly sources or all natural, chemical-free charcoal. M aking your food and beverages from local ingredients. Buying from the community supports the local economy and reduces the emissions and packaging needed for transporting products from greater distances. W e wish everyone lots of fun this football season and r emind them, no matter what colors their team sports, to think green, Said Ms. Chandler. F or more information, visit www.wm.com.

boondoggles on the part of council members and the city manager, as well as blatant incompetence, misfeasance and possible malfeasance on the part of some. When seated on the dais, I will be the voice of the people and insist on full disclosure and total transparency, like putting the citys checkbook on the internet so everyone can see where the taxpayers money is being spent. Government in the sunshine at all times. Are you better off today than you were last year, or two years ago, or ten years back? I certainly think not and we can begin to change that for the better with my election! Q: W hat are two top issues y ou feel the city council should address with urgency? How would you handle them? A: Take your pick! My platform is straightforward and has 10 fundamental common sense planks: No .1: Providing unbiased and forthright public service at a bare minimum (*) or no cost to the taxpayers No 2: Perpetual stewardship in preserving and protecting our little slice of paradise here in Sebastian No 3: Truly representative government where every r esponsible voice is heard, considered and valued No 4: Maximum public safety and security, 365 days a year and 24 hours a day, without exception No 5: Protecting our fragile environment/ecosystem to ensure the best possible quality of life for all No 6: Maintaining the lowest tax rate feasible while providing the highest public services possible No 7: Not just maintaining, but continually upgrading our infrastructure, parks and other public places No 8: Developing all of our economic possibilities and creating outstanding employment opportunities No 9: Continually promoting the unsurpassed beauty, tranquility and majesty of S ebastian to the world No 10: Ensuring that we can pass on to our children a more precious legacy than we we re entrusted with (*) If elected, I would advocate that city council members receive no guaranteed monthly stipend, but just r eimbursement for actual documented expenses incurred in the discharge of their official responsibilities. Q: Ho w would you describe Sebastians interaction with local business o wners? Is there anything y ou would improve? A: Previous city councils have consistently gone out of their way to hinder local business interests instead of working with them to create a strong and healthy business environment that would help stimulate our economy and create good paying employment opportunities for young and old alike. There are numerous positive things that could be done immediately to retain or attract businesses to the S ebastian area, such as: -Reviewing and revising our land development code and eliminating nonessential requirements and r estrictions that inhibit and/or discourage business development -Reducing business fees wherever and whenever possible and shortening application-to-permit processing times that will facilitate quicker implementation for existing businesses and accelerated start-up times for new businesses -Improving downtown and adjacent parking all along U.S. 1 and Indian River Drive from city limit to city limit -Placing a very high priority on the maintenance of r oads and ensuring proper drainage throughout the city -Developing a plan in conjunction with private property owners, business interests and the board of R ealtors, to reverse the trend of diminishing property values -Showcasing Sebastian as a great place to live and work and not just a fun place to visit because of our positioning on the Indian River Lagoon and our access to the Sebastian Inlet -Marketing the quality of our A-rated public and charter schools and nearby universities with their strong emphasis on mathematics, science and engineering, plus Chinese language and biotechnical curriculums; our rapidly developing airport; our municipal golf course; our wonderful neighborhood parks and r ecreational facilities; the abundance of both very affordable and estate type housing; our strategic location just off I-95 in central F lorida and our proximity to the Research Coast, the S pace Coast and international airports in nearby W est Palm Beach, Tampa, Orlando and Jacksonville; and our excellent overall safety, security and quality of life. Assigning the Sebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce them a regular item number on the agenda for the City Council meetings and asking them to give a r eport on their activities in promoting Sebastian would be useful Q: S ebastian is part of the Tr easure Coast region.What are some treasuresin S ebastian that make it unique and special to you? A: I believe everything about Sebastian is unique and special and should be considered a treasure to each and every one of us who is blessed to have the privilege to reside here, and it can only get better with proper selfless city council leadership. It will never be simply about me, but always about what is best for all of us. Q: W hat makes you the best candidate for the job? A: I honestly believe that I am the best qualified candidate for the job. I am thoroughly familiar with all of the departments and the operations of the City of S ebastian having spent well ov er ten years attending meetings and workshops and serving in many different capacities, including former chairman of the S ebastian code enforcement board, former community redevelopment association board member, former member of waterfront study committee. I have a wealth of valuable knowledge that was painstakingly and meticulously acquired over the past decade. I know all of the players, the essential inner workings of our city government, the systems that are in place and the appropriate procedures that always need to be followed. By diligently working together for the common good, great things can be accomplished. Once elected, I can be effective immediately and I am ready, willing and able to accept this responsibility and be of valuable service to my community as it charts its course for the benefit of the present and all future generations. When on the dais, I will work hard to build a consensus and help create a level playing field where the same rules apply to everyone in our community. civility, comity and mutual r espect will always be the hallmark of my public service, but achieving positive r esults for the citizens of Se bastian will be my constant objective.

Once we get through any potential late season hurricanes, the cooler fall air will start to filter in. If youre trying to decide on what you might want to plant, why not try some roses? R oses are beautiful, flowering plants that r epresent love and friendship. Roses are a perfect addition to your friendly tea garden. These lovely plants are surprisingly easy to grow with some basic TLC. R oses can be successfully planted in either containers or in the ground. In either case, the plants should be in w ell-drained soil in a sunny location. If you plant your treasures in the ground, be sure the soil drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches wide and 18inches deep. P ut a layer of gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to allow drainage so water drains away from the root system. The same would apply if you plant your roses in a container. The next step is to prepare the soil you are going to use to plant your roses. You should use a mix of a good quality potting soil with around half the mixture composed of organic matter such as mulch or peat. You can also use some bone meal with your soil mixture. Now, its finally time to plant your prize. Carefully r emove the plant from its original container. Place the plant in your prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the plant is the same level as the surrounding soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with your prepared soil mixture. Now, fill the gaps around the remaining parts of the plant and pack down lightly. Y ou are now ready to water in your newly planted rose. Once you have your roses planted and bursting with color, you will need to do some basic maintenance steps in order to keep them lush and colorful. S ince we live in such a humid climate, certain diseases such as black powdery mildew and black spot can both be a common problem. Both diseases are much easier to control if y ou prevent them happening in the first place. Once established, both are very difficult to get rid of. Although there are many products on the market that are used for disease control on roses, Orthenex reigns as the king. The product controls not only diseases but also controls insect infestation as well. If y ou are interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, how about baking soda. Thats right, baking soda. Pl ain ordinary baking soda added at the rate of three teaspoons per gallon of water. You then can add a small amount of mild dish detergent to the mix to act as a spreader sticker. This will work as a preventive measure but will not work we ll if an infection is present. Be sure not to make y our mix too strong as damage to your roses could result. R oses are heavy feeders and like a good supply of food. You should feed your r oses once a month with a good quality commercial r ose food. Always follow label directions carefully. Also, please do not put y our plants in the line of fire of your sprinkler systems as this keeps your leaves wet which can cause some of the fungus diseases described above.

S ometimes, nine holes is just right. Throw in beautiful views and a breeze off the ocean, and you have a perfect quick round of golf. Where does one go to find just such a treat? My quest took me to Island Dunes C ountry Club on South O cean Drive in Jensen B each. Located about 3.5 miles north of the round-about at Jensen Beach B oulevard and State Road A1A, this track offers a nice get-away from the normal. I sland Dunes plays to a par of 31 from four sets of tees and measures from 1,738 yards to 2,126 yards long. There are four par-4s and five par-3s. While there is no driving range at the course, there are a few sets of tees and nets for those wanting to get in a few full swings before heading to the first tee. The first hole may be the most difficult par-3s on the course. Playing anywhere from 113to 170yards and playing due east, you can find yourself hitting anything from a wedge to a middle iron or hybrid depending on how the wind is blowing. One of my buddies r eports that when he plays a second nine the wind sometimes picks up so much in just a couple hours that he has to hit two to three clubs more just to get to the green. The second hole is your first par-4. In addition to being the shortest of the par-4s, this hole also has the widest fairway. If you struggle to get the ball on the fairway here, you need to watch out for the mangroves and wetlands the rest of your round. The third hole is a beautiful par-3. Measuring just 106 yards from the back, there is no excuse for missing the green here. If y ou do, you will find a challenging pitch or chip or bunker shot to a severely sloped green. After a couple more par3s and a short par-4, you come to the most challenging par-4 on the course, the 360-yard seventh. You tee shot here must hug the left side of the fairway or you will be blocked out and forced to hit a blind approach to a small green. Also, the longer your drive is, the narrower the fairway becomes and you become more likely to find a bunker or waste area. If you miss this green, you are better off if your ball lands left or short of the green. The par-3 eighth is Island D unes signature hole, and it is beautiful. In fact, the r ide along the raised wooden bridge through the mangroves to the tee is soothing by itself. P laying to 145yards from the back tees, your tee shot must carry the mangroves and wetlands and land on a green that is only about 45feet deep with the Indian River sitting behind. It's an intimidating shot, as you have to take in the wind, the carry over the hazard, and yet try not to hit the ball onto the beach beyond. The finishing hole is a beautiful, but frightfully narrow, 353-yard par-4 that r uns along the river. The more you hug the river side of the fairway, the better y our angle will be for your approach. A quirky feature of this hole is a short G r een Monster wall that r uns along the mangroves down the right side as you near the green. If you hit y our tee shot far enough, y ou can play the carom and find your ball back in the fairway with a short w edge to a well-protected green. I sland Dunes may not have monster yardage to intimidate the best players, but it does have very undulating greens and some narrow areas that will penalize wayward shots. B est of all, it's an easy course to walk, and with the breeze off the ocean or the river, it's a pleasurable way to enjoy a round. There is also public beach access just a few hundred yards away, so you can drop off the non-golfers for some beach time while you get in a quick nine.

B udget Bass began in 2010 and we can thank Mr. McK ay and Ms. Andrews for making it the fastest growing competition around. They keep it fair by disallowing any judges from entering, as well as keeping it safe, fair and competitive. The name Budget makes it clear what they had in mind when starting the tournament. They follow C oast Guard regulations for safety and to keep it within budget, the monies collected for each competition is awarded for that day(s) when all the bass are weig hed. The format for placing is the two largest bass (within limit) take Large Fish Prizes and then the first, second and third heaviest strings of fish that don't exceed the numerical limit. Due to the nominal cost of entry, you can make a real winning if y ou do well enough. M ost of the tournaments are fished out of Lake O keechobee and typically consist of at least 20 boats on the second and fourth S undays of the month. Boat launching order is determined when you pay your entry fee in order of first come, first serve. It keeps the launchings easy, safe and quick. All in all, Budget Bass T ournaments consist of good group of guys and gals. A great group of 'fisher people'some good, some better and some lucky! Whichever category you fit in, there is always room to learn and improve, which can be done at the two larger tournaments: Spring and Fall Classic. D ifferent lakes are chosen for these two tournaments and after prizes and awards are distributed there is a great dinner served. There is a criterion to be met of fishing at least six of the 11 r egular events during the season in order to enter. F or more information: B udgetbasstour.com. Now, go catch a Big 'un!
