Councils,boards,get ready for another yearNew fiscal year akes effectINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The new fiscal year is underway and all of the governing boards in Indian River County have gotten their 2013-14 budgets finalized and their property tax rates set. S ome groups sought to increase revenue, while others held the line for taxpayers. He re is a roundup of what municipalities in I ndian River County chose to do for the new budget year. I ndian River County commissioners voted to approve a budget of $255 million, a decrease compared to last year's approximately $299 million. The property tax rate within the county depends on the location of the property and ov erall taxpayers will be seeing an increase to help cover the costs of raises and other services at the county level. A property owner in the unincorporated part of the county will have a property tax r ate of $6.69 per $1,000 of taxable value, which is a 7 percent increase from last year.

Out with the oldINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Portable heaters and r at traps in rooms does not make for a safe working environment and so a new administration building for the school district is in order, school board members said last week. Du r ing a school board workshop on Sept. 24, the board members gave staff direction to continue exploring building and funding options for a new administration complex or building after hearing a r eport from staff and an architect about the cost of r epairing the current building, an estimated $4.3 million, versus building a new one, an estimated $7.3 million. The school board has made it clear that they do not want to borrow funds to pay for a new building, so the money would come from various sources, including the sale of district properties. A decision to build a new facility has the potential to be criticized by citizens who want more funds to go to the classroom, and school boards in the past have backed away from making such a decision, allowing the current building to patched up dozens of times, but not addressing the real issue, said B oard Member Karen Disney-Brombach. "I f not now, then when? If not us, then who?" Ms. D isney-Brombach said. Ca r ter Morrison, assistant superintendent of finance and operations, said it would cost an estimated $4.3 million to fix the current building, which was originally built as a county hospital in the 1950s.

A home valued at $150,000 after tax exemptions would cost a property o wner $1,003.50. In the municipalities of F ellsmere, Sebastian, Vero B each and Orchid, the rate is set at $5.62 per $1,000 of taxable value. These cities provide some services to their own residents and do not require all the services the county offers. A similar home there would be charged $843, or about 8 percent more than last year. I ndian River Shores provides even more services directly to their residents, so their property rate from the county is set at $3.64 per $1,000 of taxable property v alue. A similar home there can expect a tax bill of $546, r oughly a 5 percent increase from last year. The Fellsmere city council also set their own property r ates. City property owners will pay $5.62 for every $1,000 of taxable value. The new rate is set about 2 percent lower than the "roll back" rate, which is a rate council members could have chosen to set to receive the same amount of revenue as the 2012-13 year. A homeowner in F ellsmere with house with a taxable value of $100,000 would pay $562 in property taxes. The new Fellsmere budget is about $12.7 million, which is slightly more than $1 million more than last y ear's budget. F ellsmere's neighboring city, Sebastian, has a newly approved budget of $21.8 million; about $4 million lower than last year. The property tax rate was set at approximately $3.72 per $1,000 in taxable value, which is the same as last y ear. A house with a taxable va lue of $150,000 would cost a property owner $558. The r ate, coupled with a decline in taxable value of 0.61 percent, will likely result in slightly lower tax bills for r esidents, staff said. The property tax rate for Ve ro B each residents this y ear will be $2.03 per $1,000 of taxable value. A homeowner in the district with a house valued at $150,000 after exemptions would pay $304.50 in property taxes. The rate is slightly higher than the roll back rate, which means city staff expects a revenue surplus in the coming year. And the new general fund budget for the city of Vero Beach is about $19.4 million. That amount does not include the revenue expected from the electric utility or the water and sewer systems. O ther taxing districts also set their final numbers last month for the new budget y ear. The new budget for the I ndian River County School D istrict is close to $275.4 million, a little more than $500,000 increase from last y ear. There were many decreases in the budget, but teacher salaries as mandated by the state brought the budget amount higher than last year. The property tax rate was set at $8.12 per $1,000 of taxable property value. The rate includes a voter-approved percentage for operating cost increase. The property tax rate is lower than the rate adopted for the 2012-13 y ear, but higher than a roll back rate. S ome property owners could see a tax decrease. A property owner in the district with a home with $175,000 in taxable value would pay $1,420.30 in taxes, a2.36 percent decrease, according to a r eport from district staff. The Indian River County H ospital District's budget was set at $13.17 million and included administrative and program expenditures. The program expenditures, which include the hospital, mental health program, Visiting Nurses Association programs and much more, came to about $11.8 million of the budget. The approved tax rate was 97 cents per $1,000 in taxable property value, an increase of about 3.8 percent from last year's rate. A homeowner in the district with a house valued at $175,000 after exemptions would pay $169.75 in property taxes. Check out next week's edition of H ometown News for the rest of the budget and property tax rate r oundup. sought out the slow down for more than 10 years. The thing that made the difference recently was the support by state Rep. Debbie Mayfield, as well as the S ebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce, Mrs. Ro binson said. At 40 miles per hour, the city was failing to capitalize on the day-trippers that travel through the town daily, far more than the tourists that stay in the hotels, as there aren't that many hotels in the area, she said. By slowing down the speed, motorists have time to look at businesses and r estaurants and notice where they can stop, and with the city highlighting the street parking spots, more people actually will stop, Mrs. Robinson said. "I t' s another part of the puzzle," she said. S tudies have shown that the slow-down will only increase the time it takes to get to Walmart by 14 to 16 seconds. "I f you don't have an extra 14 to 16 seconds to get to W almart, you have a problem," Mrs. Robinson said with a laugh. Law enforcement have said the speed slowdown will not be an excuse to go out and create aggressive speed traps, but rather bringing attention to the new speeds.

When Hil Laguna moved from South Florida six months ago, she discovered the lack of places for those teens to go and have a good time and feel like they had an ally in their lives. "B efore moving to Vero B each, I volunteered at an incredible nonprofit organization, Sunserve, in Fort Lauderdale," Ms. Laguna said. "While there, I had the awesome opportunity to facilitate two LGBTQ youth groups." S he described the groups she had in South Florida as loving and opening. Everyone was friendly to each other and they were free to be who they were. "I t was amazing to see so many LGBTQ youth in one place being so happy," she said. After some encouragement and help, Ms. Laguna has started a group called Tr ue Colors of Indian River. "I was looking around, not r eally thinking of starting a place, but then I came into S park of Divine in Vero B each and talked to the o wner, Beth, and when I told her what I used to do, she said, Do you want to do that here?' and I immediately said yes," Ms. Laguna said. S he wants it to be a place where the LGBTQ youth can have fun, enjoy making new friends and have a safe place to hang out. W ith more than 20 years of experience in working with youth, the True Colors' teens will be supervised but also have a place to share their opinions. They can talk about different topics ranging from parents to friends, relationships to jobs, animals to dreams and everything in between," Ms. Laguna said. S he also encourages parents to participate or get involved with the group as a mentor or help out. The group is open to all LG BT Q teens, ages 12 to 17 and their straight allies. They will meet every Monday from 79 p.m. at Spark of Divine, 1789 Old Dixie H ighway, Vero Beach. Their first meeting is Oct. 7.

And what will it be next y ear? Because there will be a what's next," Ms. DisneyBr ombach said. S taff members and school board members wear sweaters and jackets to work and some have portable heaters to keep them warm during the day, said Board Chairwoman Carol Johnson. "M s. D isney is correct, we might as well be opening the windows and grabbing the money and throwing it out," Mrs. Johnson said. Scott Sanders, director of facilities, said the estimates for a new, larger building on pre-owned school district property would cost about $7.3 million. The property discussed is adjacent to Storm Grove M iddle School, where the district owns nearly 150 acres of land, Mr. Sanders said. The new facility would be larger, about 39,600 square feet versus 26,800 square feet, and designed to be simple, functional and multi-purposed, accommodating offices and training r ooms for staff education. The $7.3 million estimate comes from conversations with Proctor Construction, said Rene Tercilla, an architect that worked on the new Ve ro B each Elementary School construction project. The construction estimate alone has the cost of building at $150 per square foot, or $5.7 million, added onto that cost is $340,000 for an information technology center, $575,000 for architects, engineers and testing, and $75,000 for fiber optic connections. Mr. Morrison said the $7.3 million was a liberal estimate, but he was more comfortable presenting a higher number than a lower figure and having to ask for an increase later down the line. The funds for the building project would come from four potential sources, $4.87 million cash on hand, $1.45 million from the sale of district lands, including the former site of Osceola Magnet School in Vero Beach and the Pleasant Ridge property, and transfer of funding from the Vero Beach H igh School offsite chiller project, if necessary. U sing the cash on hand would not be detrimental to building and or renovating projects to any schools in the district, Mr. Morrison said. B oard member Claudia J imenez was reluctant to say that a new administration building was a priority when other issues, such operating finances, are having problems.

Mo r a, director of county public works. The petition outlines key environmental concerns about the consequences of the boat ramp project and is similar to a petition filed three years ago by the Pelican Island Audubon Society for the same project, said Mr. Baker, president of the society and biology professor emeritus at the University of Florida. That petition never saw its day in court because the county dropped the permit application that led to the petition's filing, Mr. Baker said. The boat ramp project includes dredging the channel, filling in some wetlands for a parking lot and paving the road, Mr. Mora said. Mr. Baker said the primary objections the society has to the project include damaging the sea grasses, mangroves and fish nursery habitats. In these days, when the health of the lagoon is on the forefront of the majority of conversation, why would anyone recommend starting a project that would take destroy one of the few places in the lagoon that still has an active sea grass bed, Mr. Baker said. There are two permits that have yet to be issued for the boat ramp improvement project to move forward, or at least, they were the only two hurdles until the petition was filed, Mr. Mora said. The project as it stands will impact the surrounding w etlands, but mitigation has been prepared to lessen the impact, and could actually have a positive effect on the area, Mr. Mora said. B ecause Oslo Road is unpaved as it approaches the boat ramp and the lagoon, the rain causes all the sand, silt and other pollutants from the road to wash directly into the lagoon, he said. W ith the paved road, the area will be improved to include ditches where the r ainwater runoff will have a chance to be treated before impacting the lagoon, Mr. Mo ra said. In addition, dredging the channel will just put the channel back to the depth it was originally created to be, allowing boaters that already use the boat ramp to have easier access into the water, he said. "W e want to remove about 1 foot of build-up, of muck, and re-establish the channel so boats don't get stuck there," Mr. Mora said. Mr. Baker said that making the channel deeper would also adversely affect the area because more boaters and bigger boats would pass through, damaging the aquatic preserve through higher traffic volume. I ndian River County has more boat ramps per capita than either Brevard or St. L ucie counties and if more boat ramps are desired, there are other locations that would suit just fine, Mr. B aker said. "F or 50 years Oslo has been used for small boats and kayaks and wading fishermen. And the road functions very well, people can park there already. Why mess it up? "I nstead they want to eat up the mangroves and the grasses that serve as habitat for small snook that grow and are protected there," Mr. Baker said. Once a judge is selected to hear the petition, both sides will present testimony and witnesses for their cases and the judge will decide whether or not the project should be moved forward, or halted, Mr. Mo ra said. "W e' re r eally at a standstill," he said. F or more information about Indian River County government,visit www.ircgov.com.

Anna Vasquez, 30, of Port S t. Lucie and Rachael Blizzard, 27, of Fort Pierce, we re the winners of Sebastian River Medical Center's w eight loss contest, carried out on Riverside Surgical and Weight Loss Center at S ebastian River Medical C enter's Facebook page. This is the second time the medical center has put on such a contest, said Angela Dickens, marketing and community relations director for the hospital. B oth women said they have been actively trying to get a handle on their weight for many years, but nothing was working long term. "I always tried to be on top of my weight but never got under 210 pounds even with 25 hours of exercise a w eek," said Ms. Blizzard. "I 'v e dieted a lot during my life, and dieted successfully where I lost the w eight, but they didn't last," Ms. Vasquez said. The two women were chosen out of about 60 applicants to receive the free bariatric, or weight loss, surgery and so far Ms. V asquez has received the surgery and the Ms. Blizzard is scheduled for surgery later this month. Pr ior to surgery, weight loss patients at Sebastian River Medical Center go to education classes, have surgeon consultations, sessions with nutritionists and psychologists, among other things, said Cindy Rider, bariatric coordinator. Pr e-surgery and postsurgery there are individualized eating plans for program participants, Ms. V asquez said. When I got the news that I won, it was very surre al," Ms. Blizzard said. "I didn't know how to process it, it took about 24 hours," she said. O ther members of Ms. B lizzard's family have r eceived the surgery in the past, so she is confident that she will be able to handle the lifestyle change as successfully as they have. "I was just thinking, I'm 27 years old, I'm not marr ied, have no kids and what am I going to be like in 10 y ears if I'm already this big," Ms. Blizzard said. "I 'm trying to prepare myself mentally that I will be able to have normal portions and feel full, and it's like, wow, I'm excited," she said. No w two weeks out of her surgery, Ms. Vazquez is still excited about the opportunity given to her and is already planning to add to her new lifestyle with a progressive exercise routine. "I had looked into surgery before, but my insurance didn't cover it," she said. "I think weight loss surgery is good for people who need a little help with selfcontrol to have long-term success, and because the surgery helps you have a smaller stomach, it can help people lose weight and keep it off successfully long term," Ms. Vasquez said. By offering the free surgery to contest winners and having them blog online and record their progress with the community, the bariatric surgery program gets more exposure and more people can be educated about the options available for weight loss, Ms. Rider said. Ms. Vasquez said even if she hadn't won the contest, Riverside Surgical and W eight Loss Center would be the place she would have gone to receive her surgery. They are the best," she said. "E veryone is so nice, they bend over backward for you and they are so positive and supportive," Ms. V asquez said. S ince her surgery, Ms. V asquez said she has contacted staff with questions about things she was exper iencing after surgery or how she was feeling. "Y ou can go to a plastic surgeon or other hospital to have this surgery, but Riverside has their very o wn section. All they do is w eight loss surgery and they have their own surgical team," Ms. Vasquez said. B ecause of their specific goals, they have the best care and advice for people having weight loss surgery, she said. "I couldn't have asked for more," Ms. Vasquez said. W eight loss surgery has been shown to help individuals with health issues such as type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea, among other diseases, according to the medical center's web site. Riverside Surgical and W eight Loss Center is directed by Dr. Patrick Domokowski, who is one of the surgeons that perform the surgery. Dr. Jason R adecke is the second surgeon on staff and also donated his services for the contest. The medical center r ecently received the Center of Excellence designation award from the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the American College of Su r geons, said Ms. Dickens. The designation allows the medical center to provide bariatric surgical care for recipients of Medicare and Medicaid plans, and is only awarded after a rigorous program review.

In F ebruary 2013, Council M ember Andrea Coy from S ebastian was approached by the Salvation Army for ideas on how to increase their service and presence in No r th Indian River County. F eeding the hungry jumped off the page as an immediate need that the S alvation Army was already serving in Vero Beach on M ondays and Fridays. On Feb. 6, 2012, a meeting was convened by Council M ember Coy at Sebastian City Hall to discuss the issue and possible solutions. Three nonprofits were present, The Salvation Army, Bythe-River and the Ecumenical Council Food Pantry and S ebastian WalMart. A second meeting was held on March 10, 2013, at S ebastian City Hall. The meeting was attended by the Salvation Army, By-theRiver, the Ecumenical Council Food Pantry, and Council M ember Coy. The nonprofits still agreed that feeding the homeless and hungry was a major need in North Indian River C ounty. The Salvation Army volunteered the use of their food truck on Wednesdays to serve this purpose. WalMa rt M anager Mark R odgers had previously agreed to Wednesdays and had offered to set up the food truck behind the S ebastian Wal-Mart. Council M ember Coy offered to solicit other non-profits to participate as volunteers. On April 3, a final meeting was held at Sebastian City H all with all involved entities. It was agreed that they would begin by serving 150 hot meals every Wednesday beginning on April 24. N ahir Hoffman was introduced to the group by Council Member Andrea Coy as the project coordinator. S al Neglia was able to secure the use of the St. S ebastian kitchen to cook the meals. The purpose of the North C ounty Hunger Relief Coalition, a coalition of nonprofit organizations, is to provide a platform to unite all North I ndian River County nonprofits with a common mission of feeding the hungry in the area. It is recognized that there are many organizations that currently individually serve and assist those in need of supplemental food assistance. The goal of NCHRC is to allow all the individual programs a forum and opportunity to combine resources, avoid duplication of services, and make the sum total of services and resources greater than its individual programs. In order to sustain a project of this magnitude donations are needed to purchase food and supplies along with volunteers to help cook and deliver the food.

I thought, like you, it is a deterr ent to crime if you have a neighbor with his police vehicle in the driveway. It could be, but it is taking a vehicle that could be used by the next shift. It amounts to more than the gas, etc., on the bottom line. I only know of one officer, who uses his vehicle this way. There is another area in which I have lived, where an officer has three vehicles parked in his driveway from three different cities. So, let's share a ride.Cell phone users should be finedWhy haven't officials banned the use of cell phones while driving? Y esterday I had a woman on her cell phone cut me off as she pulled out onto a major road. I have a large van and there was no way she didn't see me coming. There was a woman on her cell phone who was not paying that much attention to her driving. She kept drifting over into the other lanes. I'm sorry to say I didn't have any way to contact 911 to report either of these. If y ou need to use your phone, pull over and stop to talk. It should be made a law, with a hefty fine, if not observed.P oopy politicsB oth politicians and diapers need to be changed often and for the same reasons.Act like trash, pick up trashR ecently, several articles were written ranting about litter problems. We have many people committing criminal acts within our community. These people rob us, harm us, commit property damage, take advantage of us and give our community a bad name. I think it's time to pay it back. The misdemeanor offenders get litter projects along with jail time. They wear fluorescent T-shirts that state "I Love My C ommunity and I'm Paying Back." Everyone will see them and this if not a lesson learned at least it will benefit us. The message it speaks is "Act like trash then pick up trash." I would much rather see our tax dollars pay for supervision of a program like this that truly benefits us as a whole. Can't feel safeThere are so many things to worry about these days. There are so many crimes being committed by young and old alike. It 's impossible to feel safe leaving your windows open or going for a walk in the evening time. It's as if we live in a time in which we must carry a stick or worse, a gun, to feel safe. Memorials are a distractionThere are two memorials to accident deaths on the side of r oads that I know of. I know they are special to the friends and family, but they are also so beautiful that people driving by take a second and third look. People turn around in the street to go back and view it again. People stop on the side of the road and take pictures, etc. All these things are very dangerous, and create an accident waiting to happen again. I really don't think we need such elaborate memorials on the side of the roads. I mean no disrespect to the dead or the friends and family who are hurting, but we don't need any more hurting due to another accident. There are so many distractions for drivers now, that we don't need to build more.What are our priorities?When the teachers union brags about our education system, reflect on the statistic that Americans spend 4.7 hours per day watching TV, but only 17 percent of us can name at least three members of the U.S. Supreme Court. We know "Jersey Shore" and "Dancing with the Stars" but we know little about George Washington or Thomas Jefferson. How can teachers pretend to be proud of our public schools?Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and Dish Network programming. These are old technology and old moneymaking schemes, and we are bombarded with commercial after commercial, with little entertainment, unlike the good old days, when each and every program had at least one sponsor, we now have as many as 10 or more 30-second annoying commercials. Why not have these satellite programs on the new digital side channels of the local T.V. stations? That would be as close to ala carte programming as possible. The religious and Latino channels are already enjoying the r iches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Bravo, HBO, etc. Cable TV, Dish network and Direct TV are expensive for the amount of real entertainment.

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, OCT. 4, 2013 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Holdng hands for a causePhoto courtesy of Susan WebbAbout 400 concerned citizens joined the Indian River Land Trust, the Environmental Learning Center and the Pelican Island Audubon Society and gathered on the Wabasso Causeway Bridge for Hands Across the Lagoon Saturday, Sept. 28. Take a look around any computer's hard drive and you will notice hundreds, no, thousands of things that are known as "S ystem files." These are files that your computer needs to operate. Delete, r e-name or move them and y our machine could start acting like Forrest Gump. P eople are often surprised to find out just how many things there are in a typical computer that do not "belong to them." No w, I know it's logical to think "hey, it's my computer; every file in it belongs to me." That may be true but most of the files on your computer really "belong" to the system. Meddle with them and you risk breaking y our Windows. Let me explain. Items on y our hard drive are, essentially, files which are organized into groups called folders or directories. These files are either system files, user files or a combination system/user file. Y our operating system (W indows) is a program that relies on a plethora of files to function properly. M ost of these files (system files) are so necessary that without them, Windows won't run at all. Many times system files have cryptic names and you have no idea what they are when y ou see their icon. The rule of thumb to follow is unless you are absolutely sure what a file is, don't mess with it." S ometimes, as luck would have it, system files may be named similarly to one of your own files. This can cause a problem if yo u' re not careful because not everything on your computer is what you think it is. Always make absolutely sure a file is what you think it is before y ou delete or modify it. An easy way to check a file is to right click it and then click (with the left button) "Properties" and then click "Details." This will allow you to take a quick peek at a file without opening it (or accidently r unning it if it's a program file) to determine what it is. If it's a system file, chances are you won't understand what you are seeing in the details page and that's your clue; if you don't understand it, don't delete it. If a file is "one of yours," y ou will recognize it right away in details. If you r ecognize it as not being a system file, you can do what you want with it. "S o, what about all of these things that I don't need? How do I get rid of them? "Well, the safest answer to that is to get rid of them "mentally." In other words ignore them. One of the skills that any good computerist develops is the ability to ignore all of the things that don't apply to the task at hand. S ome files, the ones that are half user files and half system files, are necessary for certain programs to r un. If these files are modified, the operating system (Windows) will still r un but the program that "o wns them" may not. How do you tell which are which? You don't need to. It all boils down to "if y ou are not absolutely clear what a file is, assume it's a system file and leave it alone!" And that's good advice.

ed and developed the first patient navigation program in 1990 in Harlem to r educe disparities in access to diagnosis and treatment of cancer, particularly among poor and uninsured people. His institute was established in 2007 by the Ralph Laur en Center for Cancer Care and Prevention to support patient navigation training to individuals associated with organizations. Ms. Reading pursued the training to enhance her effectiveness as the primary facilitator of Friends After Diagnosis, which frequently welcomes newly diagnosed patients who aren't sure where to turn next. Other meeting participants provide friendship, guidance, and support by sharing their experiences, and Reading also a breast cancer survivor works to guide group discussions. Fr iends After Diagnosis meetings are open to all breast cancer patients past and present and any family, friends or caregivers they care to bring. The group exists to ease the journey for those navigating everyday life after a diagnosis that exacts devastating physical and emotional tolls. The group meets the second and fourth Mondays of each month at the Indian River M edical Center Cancer C enter from 23:30 p.m., as well as the third Saturdays from 10-11 a.m. in the IRMC executive dining r oom adjacent to the cafeteria.

Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very userfriendly and easier in the long r un for all involved. Well, I don't feel that way at all. I applied for food stamps and temporary cash assistance due to the fact that I have no income and have a child and the child support that I do get is very sporadic. (I am thankful that I do r eceive it when I do.) I couldn't apply online and had to phone in. I had them send me the application in the mail and then when I r eceived it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I r eceived my letter from DCF. I used a friend's fax machine, because I couldn't afford to use a professional one that charged $1 a page, much less I don't have use of my car due to no insurance or an upto-date registration. I waited 15 days, like the lady had said, for expedited food stamps. I called many times after the 15 days were up, trying to get an answer only to be hung up on several times due to too many lines being used. After 30 days of not hearing from them again, by mail, I w ent online, since they had an updated website for applicants and found that I "chose not to apply." I wanted to pull every last hair out of my head. I had to repeat the process all over again. In between, I've had friends drive me to the Salvation Army and a few other small food banks so as to not starve. After applying for the expedited food stamps online, where they take your information and just believe it for now, kind of thing, I finally got some help, 35 days later, of $150 for one month, of expedited food stamps. I still had to fax in my proof paperwork again and this would be for the next six months. I could see online how much they already allotted to us and was quite excited that we would be able to eat every day, much less three times a day. This time a friend took me to a professional fax and paid the $9 for my fax usage. I have been waiting 22 days for this months allotment of food stamps. I have called DCF three times and got through: once a lady told me that yes, my food stamp allotment was approved and it would be available in 24 hours. The second time a lady said that she didn't know what the hold up was, that it looked like they were just processing it and I would have to wait for the social worker to approve it and they would send a letter. F or some reason, the system isn't working for my case even though I have no income and was diligent in getting all my proof of income and bills into the DCF office. The third time I called, I asked if there was anything they were waiting on and was told no and I had to wait for my social worker to approve it. I was told I can't ask for my social worker by name for some reason and no one seems to know what's going on. The website tells me how much is allotted to us and we can't get it. I don't understand. Why we are waiting so long? Especially when we we re allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted. We're hungry.

The little restaurant is tucked into the inside corner of Roseland Plaza on U.S. 1, but the staff is anything but shy. Ev en during the busiest hours of the day waitress D awn Jupin has a friendly "hello" for every single customer who walks through the day, for regular and newbies, although for regulars it is usually accompanied by "Do you want your usual?" The banter between the wait staff, customers and kitchen staff is amusing and entertaining during a quick breakfast or lunch break. All you have to do is come in, find a seat and y ou are assured of finding something good to eat. The menu is very reasonably priced, with the most expensive item on the menu checking in at just under $9 is the Motor City omelet, made with four extra-large eggs, ham, bacon, sausage, corn beef, green peppers, onions, tomatoes and Swiss and American cheeses. F or breakfast, the r estaurant has the traditional combinations of eggs, bacon, ham, cheeses, pancakes and waffles, but for something a little different, try a Mexican breakfast wrap. The large wrap, which can be made with a white, wheat or spinach tortilla is filled with scrambled eggs with chorizo, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green peppers and onions and salsa and sour cream. The delicious and generously-filled wrap is served straight from the stove with the cheese melted and heat rising off the plate, along with a side, either hash browns or home fries. F or a midday meal, there are just as many options, from salads, to soups to sandwiches, and of course, hot dogs. There are 12 types of hot dogs listed on the menu, including the indubitable C oney Dog. The Coney Dog is a hot dog smothered in chili and drizzled with onions and mustard, such an excellent combination for a tasty lunchtime treat that takes the mind back to fun times at state fairs and amusement parks. Linda Dickerson of M icco often dines at JD's and thoroughly enjoys the camaraderie and the cuisine. "I 'v e never had anything here that wasn't good," Ms. D ickerson said. Kid's meals are available for those 12 years old and y ounger.

Send a resume to: Opportunity@hometownnewsOL.com Please include a cover letter telling us why we absolutely must hire you. If you are looking for a great carefree plant to use in your garden, why not try some sedum. In one word I would describe these interesting plants as perfect." They require very little care from the gardener and when planted in small or large groupings, they look great. Although not carried by all garden centers, Sedum can be found at many local garden centers. These plants generally look best when planted in small groupings in your garden. They will take center stage during the fall season as that is when you will experience the blooms that they have to offer. S edum is not all that picky as to where you plant them. The plants do prefer a welldrained soil but they will do fine even during our rainy season. They do very well in draught conditions as well. No w you know why they are the "perfect" plant. As an added bonus, they even do w ell in colder temperatures. Y ou want to try to keep these plants in an area that at least gets some direct sun as if they are in an area with too much shade, they will tend to get very leggy. It is a good idea to prune your plants back once a year, preferably during the summer, to allow the plants to grow bushier and this also helps them to spread out in your garden. S edum requires very little maintenance and the old blooms do not have to be r emoved as they often do with other plant varieties. W atering 2-3 times a week during the summer and only about twice a week during the winter is all that is required of these plants. Y ou may fertilize with an allpurpose water-soluble fertilizer once every couple of months if you wish. W ith the cooler weather just around the corner many of our favorite classic plants will soon be available at your local garden centers. One of my favorite classics is the Geranium. Annual Geraniums are very popular for their wide range of brilliant, colorful flowers plus their foliage is also very attractive. The types and varieties of these colorful plants vary widely from cultivars that grow 6 inches high to some that grow to be several feet tall. Geraniums need a bright location with at least a couple of hours of direct sun in order to thrive. These wonderful plants also need to be planted in welldrained soil otherwise the plants will be prone to fungus infection and disease. After planting your colorful treasures, you will want to water them abundantly the first few days, taking care to be sure they drain between watering. W ater regularly thereafter still ensuring the plants drain and the soil to dry out between watering intervals. When you water your plants, try to avoid getting water on the leaves of the plant as this can lead to possible disease problems. Do not plant geraniums where they will re ceive their water from a sprinkler system. Geraniums are heavy feeders and if not fertilized properly, their leaves may y ellow and drop. There are several options you can use for fertilizer such as a slow r elease fertilizer or a watersoluble fertilizer. The slow r elease fertilizer will need less intervention on your part as some products such as Osmocote and Dynamite feed for as long as six months. Water-soluble fertilizers such as Miracle Gro provide a more immediate fix but will require more frequent feedings about every 2-3 weeks. The watersoluble feeding solutions are quite safe and there is little chance of burning your plants. There are a couple of things you can do to prolong how many flowers your plants will produce. Probably the single most important solution is to pinch the spent flowers off the stems on a regular basis. This will ensure a season of beautiful color. Pinching also has the advantage of helping to produce well-branched and full plants. A good rule of thumb when choosing your treasures is to pick plants that not only have abundant flowers but also have lots of tight buds. Look for dark green foliage with not a lot of yellow leaves or yellowing at the tips of the leaves. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

The perfect plants for fall GARDEN NOOKJOE ZELENAK Every week, ordinary people tee it up on the PGA, LPGA, Champions and Web.com tours to have a little fun and to help out charities. Many of us cannot afford a few thousand dollars to play in a T our Pro-Am. We, instead, have to settle for just dreaming of it. Thanks to the 2013 C elebrities Fore Kids Golf Classic, you now have your chance. You may not get to play with Tiger or Phil or Ernie or Rory, but on M onday, Dec. 2, you can tee it up and play with a famous athlete or celebrity. Champions Tour player and 1992 Senior U.S. Open Champion, Larry Laoretti and legendary musician and Bon Jovi drummer, Tico T orres are teaming up to host the 2013 Celebrities Fo re K ids Golf Classic at the prestigious Bear's Club in J upiter. This year's event promises to be a great day for golf and for kids with cancer in the area. To say the list of celebrities and sports figures has some of the biggest names is big is an understatement. I could start a pretty good baseball team with the ball players who have participated in this event. Jim Palmer, and J im Kaat would make a pretty solid front end of a starting rotation. Then I could put my all-time favorite ball player, Mike Schmidt at third. These guys may not play competitively on the diamond anymore, but they are quite serious when it comes to golf and helping out children. If yo u' re into hockey and have a favorite player, there is a chance you could tee it up with Hall of Famers Clark Gillies or Bobby Orr. Fr om the links, 1969 O pen Champion and 1970 U.S. Open Champion Tony J acklin joins Dana Quigley, Larry Ziegler, Michelle Mc G ann and Jackie Gallager-Smith have helped out. It's also likely that Jack and Barbara Nicklaus will attend the awards dinner and participated in the live auction. The event, which raises money for children with cancer on Florida's Treasure C oast, kicks off with a pretee cocktail party on S unday, Dec. 1 at the Bear's Club, Jack's personal private club, where players will be paired with their celebrities. It 's a great way to end the w eekend and get ready for golf on Monday. You can hang out with the celebrities and enjoy an evening of r elaxation. C ancer is an emotionally and financially exhausting experience for many families. Celebrities Fore K ids goal and purpose is to offer financial as well as emotional and social support to children and families who have a family member going through treatment and who cannot otherwise obtain assistance. The charity's intent is to help with related daily living expenses which negatively impact the family's health, well-being and quality of life. C elebrities For Kids, through its partnerships, provides financial assistance for: transportation to and from treatment centers; non-covered medical and prescription expenses; r ent or mortgage payments; automobile payments and maintenance; gift cards for food, gas and clothing; daily living expenses such as phone, water and electric; and individual and/or family counseling. In its 12-year existence, C elebrities For Kids, has r aised well over $1.5 million. In addition, along with the Robert & Carol W eissman Cancer Center, the charity has provided assistance to more than 100 Tr easure Coast families with adults who have cancer and are supporting their minor children through a most difficult time. The Golf Classic begins with registration and buffet luncheon beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Monday. Fr om there it's to the carts and the links for an 18-hole scramble beginning at noon followed by cocktails, hors d'eouvres and an awards dinner. There will also be a live and silent auction featuring travel and vacation packages, golf certificates and memorabilia from the celebrities.

We both had fished the river before (and did catch some bass), but that was several years ago. The Kissimmee River crosses Route 60, about 15 miles west of Yeehaw J unction. There are two boat ramps to launch from immediately after crossing the bridge. The first ramp is a little easier to launch from because it has deeper water for your boat. The second ramp is down the down, past the first ramp and easy to access, just not as deep. W ell, we got our boat in the water, life jackets on, everything secured, headed south, start looking for the lily pads and started fishing. It was a pleasant day (as is any day on the water). It seemed as if the air was a little cooler, the humidity was down and there was no rain. B oth sides of the river produced about the same number of fish, and the size of the fish were the same (nothing big), but you had something pulling on the other end of the line, and that's what it's all about. B ait wise, we used worms, senkos, spinner baits, and crank baits, all colors and sizes. They seemed to bite better on the bait that had some green mixed in with the r egular color. In a three mile stretch that we fished, we probably saw three other boats that we re fishing. Un fortunately, the day did not end like it started. Around noon, all hell broke loose! We we re drifting along the outside of the lily pads when an air boat came close to us and then cut r ight in front of us to where we we re fishing. The air boat was following the lily pads all along the shore line, weaving in and out of the pads, making certain that the fish would be gone for us. No w, I enjoy riding in air boats, but I can't understand how grown folks continue doing what they do when they are on the water. In y ears past, I (and others) have had this type of water craft come as close to me as the same distance when you're casting for bass. Now, that's not enjoyable. Air boats: please keep us in mind. We enjoy our fishing as much as you enjoy your watercraft. The water belongs to all of us. Let all of us enjoy it. C ourtesy goes a long way. M ost air-boaters understand the meaning of courtesy and we fisherman appreciate those folks. Thank you for understanding. Ha ve fun, stay safe, enjoy, and "Go Catch A B ig'un."

Councils,boards,get ready for another yearNew fiscal year akes effectINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The new fiscal year is underway and all of the governing boards in Indian River County have gotten their 2013-14 budgets finalized and their property tax rates set. S ome groups sought to increase revenue, while others held the line for taxpayers. He re is a roundup of what municipalities in I ndian River County chose to do for the new budget year. I ndian River County commissioners voted to approve a budget of $255 million, a decrease compared to last years approximately $299 million. The property tax rate within the county depends on the location of the property and ov erall taxpayers will be seeing an increase to help cover the costs of raises and other services at the county level. A property owner in the unincorporated part of the county will have a property tax r ate of $6.69 per $1,000 of taxable value, which is a 7 percent increase from last year.

Out with the oldINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Portable heaters and r at traps in rooms does not make for a safe working environment and so a new administration building for the school district is in order, school board members said last week. Du r ing a school board workshop on Sept. 24, the board members gave staff direction to continue exploring building and funding options for a new administration complex or building after hearing a r eport from staff and an architect about the cost of r epairing the current building, an estimated $4.3 million, versus building a new one, an estimated $7.3 million. The school board has made it clear that they do not want to borrow funds to pay for a new building, so the money would come from various sources, including the sale of district properties. A decision to build a new facility has the potential to be criticized by citizens who want more funds to go to the classroom, and school boards in the past have backed away from making such a decision, allowing the current building to patched up dozens of times, but not addressing the real issue, said B oard Member Karen Disney-Brombach. I f not now, then when? If not us, then who? Ms. D isney-Brombach said. Ca r ter Morrison, assistant superintendent of finance and operations, said it would cost an estimated $4.3 million to fix the current building, which was originally built as a county hospital in the 1950s.

After making Treasure Coast his home for the past 19 years, he opened a state-of-the-art facility in Sebastian two years ago to bring his knowledgeable expertise to the local community. Dr. Argenio has a long history of healing, receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 1984. Since then, he has served the community as a Chiropractor, small-time athlete, fitness club owner and even a legislator serving on various health-care committees. He has learned through his years of experience that the benefits from quality Chiropractic care include a longer healthier life; becoming stronger and faster and having increased coordination, mobility and endurance. But not all the benefits are physical. Patients have also shown to have better concentration and memory from the positive changes in their health, and the overall improvement results in less drug dependency and lower medical bills. His talents as a Chiropractor have helped people of all ages, from newborns to centenarians. He has seen and personally handled issues ranging from stiff necks to serious disorders. Over his years of helping people, he has made tens of thousands of adjustments, bringing relief to all who enter his professional office. With an in-office precision digital x-ray machine, he and his staff can quickly locate the source of the issue and work efficiently to bring the patient back to health. Dr. Argenio has even taken his knowledge to the public, appearing on numerous television and radio shows, and speaking to numerous clubs and organizations about a variety of health and wellness topics. He works tirelessly to help people reach their greatest health potential. Even with a busy schedule, Dr. Argenio practices what he preaches, and is a health and fitness enthusiast who enjoys running while fighting the age wave himself. As a result, he has become a source of information, and works to not only heal, but educate patients on how to make prudent and rational health-care decisions. Even the website, found at www.ArtTheChiropractor.com has an abundance of informative articles, explaining in detail not only how effective chiropractic care is, but why it is one of the best health decision a person can make for themselves today. As Art the Chiropractor says, Your body is smart. It has a inborn wisdom to heal. Its my job to remove any interference to that, so you can have your best health now. Argenio Chiropractic is located in Pelican Shops, at 9414 U.S. Highway 1 in Sebastian. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and by appointment on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. For more information, call (772) 228-8131 or go online to www.ArtTheChiropractor.com. To send a personal message directly to Dr. Argenio, he can emailed at info@ArtTheChiropractor.com.

In the municipalities of F ellsmere, Sebastian, Vero B each and Orchid, the rate is set at $5.62 per $1,000 of taxable value. These cities provide some services to their own residents and do not require all the services the county offers. A similar home there would be charged $843, or about 8 percent more than last year. I ndian River Shores provides even more services directly to their residents, so their property rate from the county is set at $3.64 per $1,000 of taxable property v alue. A similar home there can expect a tax bill of $546, r oughly a 5 percent increase from last year. The Fellsmere city council also set their own property r ates. City property owners will pay $5.62 for every $1,000 of taxable value. The new rate is set about 2 percent lower than the roll back rate, which is a rate council members could have chosen to set to receive the same amount of revenue as the 2012-13 year. A homeowner in F ellsmere with house with a taxable value of $100,000 would pay $562 in property taxes. The new Fellsmere budget is about $12.7 million, which is slightly more than $1 million more than last y ears budget. F ellsmeres neighboring city, Sebastian, has a newly approved budget of $21.8 million; about $4 million lower than last year. The property tax rate was set at approximately $3.72 per $1,000 in taxable value, which is the same as last y ear. A house with a taxable va lue of $150,000 would cost a property owner $558. The r ate, coupled with a decline in taxable value of 0.61 percent, will likely result in slightly lower tax bills for r esidents, staff said. The property tax rate for Ve ro Beach residents this y ear will be $2.03 per $1,000 of taxable value. A homeowner in the district with a house valued at $150,000 after exemptions would pay $304.50 in property taxes. The rate is slightly higher than the roll back rate, which means city staff expects a revenue surplus in the coming year. And the new general fund budget for the city of Vero Beach is about $19.4 million. That amount does not include the revenue expected from the electric utility or the water and sewer systems. O ther taxing districts also set their final numbers last month for the new budget y ear. The new budget for the I ndian River County School D istrict is close to $275.4 million, a little more than $500,000 increase from last y ear. There were many decreases in the budget, but teacher salaries as mandated by the state brought the budget amount higher than last year. The property tax rate was set at $8.12 per $1,000 of taxable property value. The rate includes a voter-approved percentage for operating cost increase. The property tax rate is lower than the rate adopted for the 2012-13 y ear, but higher than a roll back rate. S ome property owners could see a tax decrease. A property owner in the district with a home with $175,000 in taxable value would pay $1,420.30 in taxes, a2.36 percent decrease, according to a r eport from district staff. The Indian River County H ospital Districts budget was set at $13.17 million and included administrative and program expenditures. The program expenditures, which include the hospital, mental health program, Visiting Nurses Association programs and much more, came to about $11.8 million of the budget. The approved tax rate was 97 cents per $1,000 in taxable property value, an increase of about 3.8 percent from last years rate. A homeowner in the district with a house valued at $175,000 after exemptions would pay $169.75 in property taxes.

The thing that made the difference recently was the support by state Rep. Debbie Mayfield, as well as the S ebastian River Area Chamber of Commerce, Mrs. Ro binson said. At 40 miles per hour, the city was failing to capitalize on the day-trippers that travel through the town daily, far more than the tourists that stay in the hotels, as there arent that many hotels in the area, she said. By slowing down the speed, motorists have time to look at businesses and r estaurants and notice where they can stop, and with the city highlighting the street parking spots, more people actually will stop, Mrs. Robinson said. I t s another part of the puzzle, she said. S tudies have shown that the slow-down will only increase the time it takes to get to Walmart by 14 to 16 seconds. I f you dont have an extra 14 to 16 seconds to get to W almart, you have a problem, Mrs. Robinson said with a laugh. Law enforcement have said the speed slowdown will not be an excuse to go out and create aggressive speed traps, but rather bringing attention to the new speeds.

When Hil Laguna moved from South Florida six months ago, she discovered the lack of places for those teens to go and have a good time and feel like they had an ally in their lives. B efore moving to Vero B each, I volunteered at an incredible nonprofit organization, Sunserve, in Fort Lauderdale, Ms. Laguna said. While there, I had the awesome opportunity to facilitate two LGBTQ youth groups. S he described the groups she had in South Florida as loving and opening. Everyone was friendly to each other and they were free to be who they were. I t was amazing to see so many LGBTQ youth in one place being so happy, she said. After some encouragement and help, Ms. Laguna has started a group called Tr ue Colors of Indian River. I was looking around, not r eally thinking of starting a place, but then I came into S park of Divine in Vero B each and talked to the o wner, Beth, and when I told her what I used to do, she said, Do you want to do that here? and I immediately said yes, Ms. Laguna said. S he wants it to be a place where the LGBTQ youth can have fun, enjoy making new friends and have a safe place to hang out. W ith more than 20 years of experience in working with youth, the True Colors teens will be supervised but also have a place to share their opinions. They can talk about different topics ranging from parents to friends, relationships to jobs, animals to dreams and everything in between, Ms. Laguna said. S he also encourages parents to participate or get involved with the group as a mentor or help out. The group is open to all LG BT Q teens, ages 12 to 17 and their straight allies. They will meet every Monday from 79 p.m. at Spark of Divine, 1789 Old Dixie H ighway, Vero Beach. Their first meeting is Oct. 7.

And what will it be next y ear? Because there will be a whats next, Ms. DisneyBr ombach said. S taff members and school board members wear sweaters and jackets to work and some have portable heaters to keep them warm during the day, said Board Chairwoman Carol Johnson. M s. D isney is correct, we might as well be opening the windows and grabbing the money and throwing it out, Mrs. Johnson said. Scott Sanders, director of facilities, said the estimates for a new, larger building on pre-owned school district property would cost about $7.3 million. The property discussed is adjacent to Storm Grove M iddle School, where the district owns nearly 150 acres of land, Mr. Sanders said. The new facility would be larger, about 39,600 square feet versus 26,800 square feet, and designed to be simple, functional and multi-purposed, accommodating offices and training r ooms for staff education. The $7.3 million estimate comes from conversations with Proctor Construction, said Rene Tercilla, an architect that worked on the new Ve ro Beach Elementary School construction project. The construction estimate alone has the cost of building at $150 per square foot, or $5.7 million, added onto that cost is $340,000 for an information technology center, $575,000 for architects, engineers and testing, and $75,000 for fiber optic connections. Mr. Morrison said the $7.3 million was a liberal estimate, but he was more comfortable presenting a higher number than a lower figure and having to ask for an increase later down the line. The funds for the building project would come from four potential sources, $4.87 million cash on hand, $1.45 million from the sale of district lands, including the former site of Osceola Magnet School in Vero Beach and the Pleasant Ridge property, and transfer of funding from the Vero Beach H igh School offsite chiller project, if necessary. U sing the cash on hand would not be detrimental to building and or renovating projects to any schools in the district, Mr. Morrison said. B oard member Claudia J imenez was reluctant to say that a new administration building was a priority when other issues, such operating finances, are having problems.

Mor a, director of county public works. The petition outlines key environmental concerns about the consequences of the boat ramp project and is similar to a petition filed three years ago by the Pelican Island Audubon Society for the same project, said Mr. Baker, president of the society and biology professor emeritus at the University of Florida. That petition never saw its day in court because the county dropped the permit application that led to the petitions filing, Mr. Baker said. The boat ramp project includes dredging the channel, filling in some wetlands for a parking lot and paving the road, Mr. Mora said. Mr. Baker said the primary objections the society has to the project include damaging the sea grasses, mangroves and fish nursery habitats. In these days, when the health of the lagoon is on the forefront of the majority of conversation, why would anyone recommend starting a project that would take destroy one of the few places in the lagoon that still has an active sea grass bed, Mr. Baker said. There are two permits that have yet to be issued for the boat ramp improvement project to move forward, or at least, they were the only two hurdles until the petition was filed, Mr. Mora said. The project as it stands will impact the surrounding w etlands, but mitigation has been prepared to lessen the impact, and could actually have a positive effect on the area, Mr. Mora said. B ecause Oslo Road is unpaved as it approaches the boat ramp and the lagoon, the rain causes all the sand, silt and other pollutants from the road to wash directly into the lagoon, he said. W ith the paved road, the area will be improved to include ditches where the r ainwater runoff will have a chance to be treated before impacting the lagoon, Mr. Mo ra said. In addition, dredging the channel will just put the channel back to the depth it was originally created to be, allowing boaters that already use the boat ramp to have easier access into the water, he said. W e want to remove about 1 foot of build-up, of muck, and re-establish the channel so boats dont get stuck there, Mr. Mora said. Mr. Baker said that making the channel deeper would also adversely affect the area because more boaters and bigger boats would pass through, damaging the aquatic preserve through higher traffic volume. I ndian River County has more boat ramps per capita than either Brevard or St. L ucie counties and if more boat ramps are desired, there are other locations that would suit just fine, Mr. B aker said. F or 50 years Oslo has been used for small boats and kayaks and wading fishermen. And the road functions very well, people can park there already. Why mess it up? I nstead they want to eat up the mangroves and the grasses that serve as habitat for small snook that grow and are protected there, Mr. Baker said. Once a judge is selected to hear the petition, both sides will present testimony and witnesses for their cases and the judge will decide whether or not the project should be moved forward, or halted, Mr. Mo ra said. W e re really at a standstill, he said. F or more information about Indian River County government,visit www.ircgov.com.

F eeding the hungry jumped off the page as an immediate need that the S alvation Army was already serving in Vero Beach on M ondays and Fridays. On Feb. 6, 2012, a meeting was convened by Council M ember Coy at Sebastian City Hall to discuss the issue and possible solutions. Three nonprofits were present, The Salvation Army, Bythe-River and the Ecumenical Council Food Pantry and S ebastian WalMart. A second meeting was held on March 10, 2013, at S ebastian City Hall. The meeting was attended by the Salvation Army, By-theRiver, the Ecumenical Council Food Pantry, and Council M ember Coy. The nonprofits still agreed that feeding the homeless and hungry was a major need in North Indian River C ounty. The Salvation Army volunteered the use of their food truck on Wednesdays to serve this purpose. WalMa rt M anager Mark R odgers had previously agreed to Wednesdays and had offered to set up the food truck behind the S ebastian Wal-Mart. Council M ember Coy offered to solicit other non-profits to participate as volunteers. On April 3, a final meeting was held at Sebastian City H all with all involved entities. It was agreed that they would begin by serving 150 hot meals every Wednesday beginning on April 24. N ahir Hoffman was introduced to the group by Council Member Andrea Coy as the project coordinator. S al Neglia was able to secure the use of the St. S ebastian kitchen to cook the meals. The purpose of the North C ounty Hunger Relief Coalition, a coalition of nonprofit organizations, is to provide a platform to unite all North I ndian River County nonprofits with a common mission of feeding the hungry in the area. It is recognized that there are many organizations that currently individually serve and assist those in need of supplemental food assistance. The goal of NCHRC is to allow all the individual programs a forum and opportunity to combine resources, avoid duplication of services, and make the sum total of services and resources greater than its individual programs. In order to sustain a project of this magnitude donations are needed to purchase food and supplies along with volunteers to help cook and deliver the food.

I thought, like you, it is a deterr ent to crime if you have a neighbor with his police vehicle in the driveway. It could be, but it is taking a vehicle that could be used by the next shift. It amounts to more than the gas, etc., on the bottom line. I only know of one officer, who uses his vehicle this way. There is another area in which I have lived, where an officer has three vehicles parked in his driveway from three different cities. So, lets share a ride.Cell phone users should be finedWhy havent officials banned the use of cell phones while driving? Y esterday I had a woman on her cell phone cut me off as she pulled out onto a major road. I have a large van and there was no way she didn't see me coming. There was a woman on her cell phone who was not paying that much attention to her driving. She kept drifting over into the other lanes. Im sorry to say I didn't have any way to contact 911 to report either of these. If you need to use your phone, pull over and stop to talk. It should be made a law, with a hefty fine, if not observed.P oopy politicsB oth politicians and diapers need to be changed often and for the same reasons.Act like trash, pick up trashR ecently, several articles were written ranting about litter problems. We have many people committing criminal acts within our community. These people rob us, harm us, commit property damage, take advantage of us and give our community a bad name. I think its time to pay it back. The misdemeanor offenders get litter projects along with jail time. They wear fluorescent T-shirts that state I Love My C ommunity and Im Paying Back. Everyone will see them and this if not a lesson learned at least it will benefit us. The message it speaks is Act like trash then pick up trash. I would much rather see our tax dollars pay for supervision of a program like this that truly benefits us as a whole. Cant feel safeThere are so many things to worry about these days. There are so many crimes being committed by young and old alike. It s impossible to feel safe leaving your windows open or going for a walk in the evening time. Its as if we live in a time in which we must carry a stick or worse, a gun, to feel safe. Memorials are a distractionThere are two memorials to accident deaths on the side of r oads that I know of. I know they are special to the friends and family, but they are also so beautiful that people driving by take a second and third look. People turn around in the street to go back and view it again. People stop on the side of the road and take pictures, etc. All these things are very dangerous, and create an accident waiting to happen again. I really don't think we need such elaborate memorials on the side of the roads. I mean no disrespect to the dead or the friends and family who are hurting, but we don't need any more hurting due to another accident. There are so many distractions for drivers now, that we don't need to build more.What are our priorities?When the teachers union brags about our education system, reflect on the statistic that Americans spend 4.7 hours per day watching TV, but only 17 percent of us can name at least three members of the U.S. Supreme Court. We know "Jersey Shore" and "Dancing with the Stars" but we know little about George Washington or Thomas Jefferson. How can teachers pretend to be proud of our public schools?Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and Dish Network programming. These are old technology and old moneymaking schemes, and we are bombarded with commercial after commercial, with little entertainment, unlike the good old days, when each and every program had at least one sponsor, we now have as many as 10 or more 30-second annoying commercials. Why not have these satellite programs on the new digital side channels of the local T.V. stations? That would be as close to ala carte programming as possible. The religious and Latino channels are already enjoying the r iches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Bravo, HBO, etc. Cable TV, Dish network and Direct TV are expensive for the amount of real entertainment. The massive doses of commercials are negating the entire Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, OCT. 4, 2013 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Holdng hands for a causePhoto courtesy of Susan WebbAbout 400 concerned citizens joined the Indian River Land Trust, the Environmental Learning Center and the Pelican Island Audubon Society and gathered on the Wabasso Causeway Bridge for Hands Across the Lagoon Saturday, Sept. 28. Take a look around any computer's hard drive and you will notice hundreds, no, thousands of things that are known as S ystem files. These are files that your computer needs to operate. Delete, r e-name or move them and y our machine could start acting like Forrest Gump. P eople are often surprised to find out just how many things there are in a typical computer that do not belong to them. Now, I know its logical to think hey, its my computer; every file in it belongs to me. That may be true but most of the files on your computer really belong to the system. Meddle with them and you risk breaking y our Windows. Let me explain. Items on y our hard drive are, essentially, files which are organized into groups called folders or directories. These files are either system files, user files or a combination system/user file. Y our operating system (W indows) is a program that relies on a plethora of files to function properly. M ost of these files (system files) are so necessary that without them, Windows wont run at all. Many times system files have cryptic names and you have no idea what they are when y ou see their icon. The rule of thumb to follow is unless you are absolutely sure what a file is, dont mess with it. S ometimes, as luck would have it, system files may be named similarly to one of your own files. This can cause a problem if yo u re not careful because not everything on your computer is what you think it is. Always make absolutely sure a file is what you think it is before y ou delete or modify it. An easy way to check a file is to right click it and then click (with the left button) Properties and then click Details. This will allow you to take a quick peek at a file without opening it (or accidently r unning it if its a program file) to determine what it is. If its a system file, chances are you wont understand what you are seeing in the details page and thats your clue; if you dont understand it, dont delete it. If a file is one of yours, y ou will recognize it right away in details. If you r ecognize it as not being a system file, you can do what you want with it. S o, what about all of these things that I dont need? How do I get rid of them? Well, the safest answer to that is to get rid of them mentally. In other words ignore them. One of the skills that any good computerist develops is the ability to ignore all of the things that dont apply to the task at hand. S ome files, the ones that are half user files and half system files, are necessary for certain programs to r un. If these files are modified, the operating system (Windows) will still r un but the program that o wns them may not. How do you tell which are which? You dont need to. It all boils down to if y ou are not absolutely clear what a file is, assume its a system file and leave it alone! And thats good advice.

I live in a community with a pet section, and I clean up after my dog. Not everyone does, though. When I take my dog out, she heads back to her o wn property to take care of business.

There is more danger inside the hospital with the drugs that are used. Patients should pay more attention to what they are given. They might be surprised.What happened to jobs for Americans?How come on every construction site I see, there are nothing but illegal aliens working? What about the jobs going to Americans? Our kids are starving, and we are paying illegals to work here. It needs to stop.Automated phone systemsWhatever happened to the time you could call a business number and speak to someone? Now all you get is a machine telling you to press 1, 2 or sometimes up to 4 numbers. I have tried calling a local business, and with all the options given, I got none for the reason I wanted.

ed and developed the first patient navigation program in 1990 in Harlem to r educe disparities in access to diagnosis and treatment of cancer, particularly among poor and uninsured people. His institute was established in 2007 by the Ralph Laur en Center for Cancer Care and Prevention to support patient navigation training to individuals associated with organizations. Ms. Reading pursued the training to enhance her effectiveness as the primary facilitator of Friends After Diagnosis, which frequently welcomes newly diagnosed patients who arent sure where to turn next. Other meeting participants provide friendship, guidance, and support by sharing their experiences, and Reading also a breast cancer survivor works to guide group discussions. Fr iends After Diagnosis meetings are open to all breast cancer patients past and present and any family, friends or caregivers they care to bring. The group exists to ease the journey for those navigating everyday life after a diagnosis that exacts devastating physical and emotional tolls. The group meets the second and fourth Mondays of each month at the Indian River M edical Center Cancer C enter from 23:30 p.m., as well as the third Saturdays from 10-11 a.m. in the IRMC executive dining r oom adjacent to the cafeteria.

Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very userfriendly and easier in the long r un for all involved. Well, I don't feel that way at all. I applied for food stamps and temporary cash assistance due to the fact that I have no income and have a child and the child support that I do get is very sporadic. (I am thankful that I do r eceive it when I do.) I couldn't apply online and had to phone in. I had them send me the application in the mail and then when I r eceived it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I r eceived my letter from DCF. I used a friends fax machine, because I couldn't afford to use a professional one that charged $1 a page, much less I don't have use of my car due to no insurance or an upto-date registration. I waited 15 days, like the lady had said, for expedited food stamps. I called many times after the 15 days were up, trying to get an answer only to be hung up on several times due to too many lines being used. After 30 days of not hearing from them again, by mail, I w ent online, since they had an updated website for applicants and found that I "chose not to apply." I wanted to pull every last hair out of my head. I had to repeat the process all over again. In between, I've had friends drive me to the Salvation Army and a few other small food banks so as to not starve. After applying for the expedited food stamps online, where they take your information and just believe it for now, kind of thing, I finally got some help, 35 days later, of $150 for one month, of expedited food stamps. I still had to fax in my proof paperwork again and this would be for the next six months. I could see online how much they already allotted to us and was quite excited that we would be able to eat every day, much less three times a day. This time a friend took me to a professional fax and paid the $9 for my fax usage. I have been waiting 22 days for this months allotment of food stamps. I have called DCF three times and got through: once a lady told me that yes, my food stamp allotment was approved and it would be available in 24 hours. The second time a lady said that she didn't know what the hold up was, that it looked like they were just processing it and I would have to wait for the social worker to approve it and they would send a letter. F or some reason, the system isn't working for my case even though I have no income and was diligent in getting all my proof of income and bills into the DCF office. The third time I called, I asked if there was anything they were waiting on and was told no and I had to wait for my social worker to approve it. I was told I can't ask for my social worker by name for some reason and no one seems to know what's going on. The website tells me how much is allotted to us and we can't get it. I don't understand. Why we are waiting so long? Especially when we we re allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted. We're hungry.

The little restaurant is tucked into the inside corner of Roseland Plaza on U.S. 1, but the staff is anything but shy. Ev en during the busiest hours of the day waitress D awn Jupin has a friendly hello for every single customer who walks through the day, for regular and newbies, although for regulars it is usually accompanied by Do you want your usual? The banter between the wait staff, customers and kitchen staff is amusing and entertaining during a quick breakfast or lunch break. All you have to do is come in, find a seat and y ou are assured of finding something good to eat. The menu is very reasonably priced, with the most expensive item on the menu checking in at just under $9 is the Motor City omelet, made with four extra-large eggs, ham, bacon, sausage, corn beef, green peppers, onions, tomatoes and Swiss and American cheeses. F or breakfast, the r estaurant has the traditional combinations of eggs, bacon, ham, cheeses, pancakes and waffles, but for something a little different, try a Mexican breakfast wrap. The large wrap, which can be made with a white, wheat or spinach tortilla is filled with scrambled eggs with chorizo, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, green peppers and onions and salsa and sour cream. The delicious and generously-filled wrap is served straight from the stove with the cheese melted and heat rising off the plate, along with a side, either hash browns or home fries. F or a midday meal, there are just as many options, from salads, to soups to sandwiches, and of course, hot dogs. There are 12 types of hot dogs listed on the menu, including the indubitable C oney Dog. The Coney Dog is a hot dog smothered in chili and drizzled with onions and mustard, such an excellent combination for a tasty lunchtime treat that takes the mind back to fun times at state fairs and amusement parks. Linda Dickerson of M icco often dines at JDs and thoroughly enjoys the camaraderie and the cuisine. I v e never had anything here that wasnt good, Ms. D ickerson said. Kids meals are available for those 12 years old and y ounger.

S ince the committee was formed, they have been having meetings and attending events to bring about awareness to the community regarding the needs of people with disabilities. Last March the Advocacy C ommittee went to Tallahassee to meet with other individuals from across F lorida to engage in a statewide campaign to E nd the R-word in Florida. We are so happy to r eport that their quest was a success, with Governor Scott signing the bill in A ugust to end the R word. W e are all so proud of what the Advocacy Committee has accomplished in a very short time. Their tenacity to educate the general public on Special N eeds individuals is inspiring saidChuck Br adley, SunUp ARC executive director.

Send a resume to: Opportunity@hometownnewsOL.com Please include a cover letter telling us why we absolutely must hire you. If you are looking for a great carefree plant to use in your garden, why not try some sedum. In one word I would describe these interesting plants as perfect. They require very little care from the gardener and when planted in small or large groupings, they look great. Although not carried by all garden centers, Sedum can be found at many local garden centers. These plants generally look best when planted in small groupings in your garden. They will take center stage during the fall season as that is when you will experience the blooms that they have to offer. S edum is not all that picky as to where you plant them. The plants do prefer a welldrained soil but they will do fine even during our rainy season. They do very well in draught conditions as well. Now you know why they are the perfect plant. As an added bonus, they even do w ell in colder temperatures. Y ou want to try to keep these plants in an area that at least gets some direct sun as if they are in an area with too much shade, they will tend to get very leggy. It is a good idea to prune your plants back once a year, preferably during the summer, to allow the plants to grow bushier and this also helps them to spread out in your garden. S edum requires very little maintenance and the old blooms do not have to be r emoved as they often do with other plant varieties. W atering 2-3 times a week during the summer and only about twice a week during the winter is all that is required of these plants. Y ou may fertilize with an allpurpose water-soluble fertilizer once every couple of months if you wish. W ith the cooler weather just around the corner many of our favorite classic plants will soon be available at your local garden centers. One of my favorite classics is the Geranium. Annual Geraniums are very popular for their wide range of brilliant, colorful flowers plus their foliage is also very attractive. The types and varieties of these colorful plants vary widely from cultivars that grow 6 inches high to some that grow to be several feet tall. Geraniums need a bright location with at least a couple of hours of direct sun in order to thrive. These wonderful plants also need to be planted in welldrained soil otherwise the plants will be prone to fungus infection and disease. After planting your colorful treasures, you will want to water them abundantly the first few days, taking care to be sure they drain between watering. W ater regularly thereafter still ensuring the plants drain and the soil to dry out between watering intervals. When you water your plants, try to avoid getting water on the leaves of the plant as this can lead to possible disease problems. Do not plant geraniums where they will re ceive their water from a sprinkler system. Geraniums are heavy feeders and if not fertilized properly, their leaves may y ellow and drop. There are several options you can use for fertilizer such as a slow r elease fertilizer or a watersoluble fertilizer. The slow r elease fertilizer will need less intervention on your part as some products such as Osmocote and Dynamite feed for as long as six months. Water-soluble fertilizers such as Miracle Gro provide a more immediate fix but will require more frequent feedings about every 2-3 weeks. The watersoluble feeding solutions are quite safe and there is little chance of burning your plants. There are a couple of things you can do to prolong how many flowers your plants will produce. Probably the single most important solution is to pinch the spent flowers off the stems on a regular basis. This will ensure a season of beautiful color. Pinching also has the advantage of helping to produce well-branched and full plants. A good rule of thumb when choosing your treasures is to pick plants that not only have abundant flowers but also have lots of tight buds. Look for dark green foliage with not a lot of yellow leaves or yellowing at the tips of the leaves. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

The perfect plants for fall GARDEN NOOKJOE ZELENAK Every week, ordinary people tee it up on the PGA, LPGA, Champions and Web.com tours to have a little fun and to help out charities. Many of us cannot afford a few thousand dollars to play in a T our Pro-Am. We, instead, have to settle for just dreaming of it. Thanks to the 2013 C elebrities Fore Kids Golf Classic, you now have your chance. You may not get to play with Tiger or Phil or Ernie or Rory, but on M onday, Dec. 2, you can tee it up and play with a famous athlete or celebrity. Champions Tour player and 1992 Senior U.S. Open Champion, Larry Laoretti and legendary musician and Bon Jovi drummer, Tico T orres are teaming up to host the 2013 Celebrities Fo re K ids Golf Classic at the prestigious Bears Club in J upiter. This years event promises to be a great day for golf and for kids with cancer in the area. To say the list of celebrities and sports figures has some of the biggest names is big is an understatement. I could start a pretty good baseball team with the ball players who have participated in this event. Jim Palmer, and J im Kaat would make a pretty solid front end of a starting rotation. Then I could put my all-time favorite ball player, Mike Schmidt at third. These guys may not play competitively on the diamond anymore, but they are quite serious when it comes to golf and helping out children. If yo u re into hockey and have a favorite player, there is a chance you could tee it up with Hall of Famers Clark Gillies or Bobby Orr. Fr om the links, 1969 O pen Champion and 1970 U.S. Open Champion Tony J acklin joins Dana Quigley, Larry Ziegler, Michelle McG ann and Jackie Gallager-Smith have helped out. Its also likely that Jack and Barbara Nicklaus will attend the awards dinner and participated in the live auction. The event, which raises money for children with cancer on Floridas Treasure C oast, kicks off with a pretee cocktail party on S unday, Dec. 1 at the Bears Club, Jacks personal private club, where players will be paired with their celebrities. It s a great way to end the w eekend and get ready for golf on Monday. You can hang out with the celebrities and enjoy an evening of r elaxation. C ancer is an emotionally and financially exhausting experience for many families. Celebrities Fore K ids goal and purpose is to offer financial as well as emotional and social support to children and families who have a family member going through treatment and who cannot otherwise obtain assistance. The charitys intent is to help with related daily living expenses which negatively impact the familys health, well-being and quality of life. C elebrities For Kids, through its partnerships, provides financial assistance for: transportation to and from treatment centers; non-covered medical and prescription expenses; r ent or mortgage payments; automobile payments and maintenance; gift cards for food, gas and clothing; daily living expenses such as phone, water and electric; and individual and/or family counseling. In its 12-year existence, C elebrities For Kids, has r aised well over $1.5 million. In addition, along with the Robert & Carol W eissman Cancer Center, the charity has provided assistance to more than 100 Tr easure Coast families with adults who have cancer and are supporting their minor children through a most difficult time. The Golf Classic begins with registration and buffet luncheon beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Monday. Fr om there its to the carts and the links for an 18-hole scramble beginning at noon followed by cocktails, hors deouvres and an awards dinner.

We both had fished the river before (and did catch some bass), but that was several years ago. The Kissimmee River crosses Route 60, about 15 miles west of Yeehaw J unction. There are two boat ramps to launch from immediately after crossing the bridge. The first ramp is a little easier to launch from because it has deeper water for your boat. The second ramp is down the down, past the first ramp and easy to access, just not as deep. W ell, we got our boat in the water, life jackets on, everything secured, headed south, start looking for the lily pads and started fishing. It was a pleasant day (as is any day on the water). It seemed as if the air was a little cooler, the humidity was down and there was no rain. B oth sides of the river produced about the same number of fish, and the size of the fish were the same (nothing big), but you had something pulling on the other end of the line, and that's what it's all about. B ait wise, we used worms, senkos, spinner baits, and crank baits, all colors and sizes. They seemed to bite better on the bait that had some green mixed in with the r egular color. In a three mile stretch that we fished, we probably saw three other boats that we re fishing. Un fortunately, the day did not end like it started. Around noon, all hell broke loose! We we re drifting along the outside of the lily pads when an air boat came close to us and then cut r ight in front of us to where we we re fishing. The air boat was following the lily pads all along the shore line, weaving in and out of the pads, making certain that the fish would be gone for us. Now, I enjoy riding in air boats, but I can't understand how grown folks continue doing what they do when they are on the water. In y ears past, I (and others) have had this type of water craft come as close to me as the same distance when youre casting for bass. Now, that's not enjoyable. Air boats: please keep us in mind. We enjoy our fishing as much as you enjoy your watercraft. The water belongs to all of us. Let all of us enjoy it. C ourtesy goes a long way. M ost air-boaters understand the meaning of courtesy and we fisherman appreciate those folks. Thank you for understanding. Ha ve fun, stay safe, enjoy, and "Go Catch A B ig'un."
