The $1.2 million proposal would have granted CareHere, a healthcare organization based in N ashville, the right to be a thirdparty administrator for a health and wellness clinic for the employees of the Indian River C ounty school district and their dependents, as well as retirees. The school board voted on the proposal during the Oct. 8 business meeting, but the 2-2 tie vote means the project will be dead on the table. The school board is down one member since the resignation of J eff Pegler, who left to take a job in another district. Gov. Rick Scott has not yet appointed someone to fill the v acancy, so there is no way to break the tie vote. The school board instructed staff more than a year ago to investigate CareHere as a potential partner in bringing employees another healthcare option, but not enough of the sitting members we re convinced the company orHealth clinic a no go with school board stalemate SEBASTIAN RIVER AREAV ol. 11, No. 4 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Oct. 18, 2013 H OW TO TALK TECHTips for talking to technical support P ageA6 INSIDE 077994 1961 Old Dixie Hwy, Vero Beach, FL 32960772-834-7334www.BilbursBarberSpa.com www.facebook.com/bilbursVoted #1 Barber Shop by Vero Beach Readers Cypress Gardens still holds charm through Legoland attractions Runners were up before dawn to take part in the Beachside Half Marathon.

The Kids and Nurses PPEC Center, licensed in January of 2013, became a dream come true for parents who needed to drive and transport their children to another county for care. The center allows Medicaid eligible children, from birth through age 20, with medically complex conditions to receive continual medical care in a non-residential setting. In this setting they receive specialized nursing and rehabilitation. Ms. Scavella, RRT-PPEC Administer, is a trained respiratory therapist with more than 30 years of experience in the healthcare f ield. She has worked with medically fragile children since 2000 and in 2005, along with five other healthcare professionals founded P A TCHES PPEC, in Florida City. After managing an expansion of the PATCHES PPEC in Fort Pierce, she left to start a PPEC center in Vero Beach. Linda McNeal, R.N., M.S.N., a nurse practitioner in obstetric and womens health nursing, with years of experience working with neonatal and pediatric patients. The two, along with a knowledgeable and highly skilled 13 person staff, including a medical director, PPEC administrator, a director of nursing, nurses, practical nurses and nursing assistants, the center is an easy choice for top of the line care. The most frequent issues seen are children with seizure disorders, congenital heart defects, chronic asthma, chromosome disorders and more congenital abnormalities. They also provide nursing services and rehabilitation therapies, such as physical, occupational and speech therapies. Each child is surrounded by healthcare professionals, but should an emergency arise, a nurse will accompany the child to the ho spital. The center reduces homebound isolation and provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional home health care. Children may be referred by any individual or agency, however, they must have a prescription for PPEC services and therapies from their primary physician to attend. Their goal is let the residents know that there are services available, free of charge, for their children who may have a chronic illness, and utilizes the emergency r oom on a frequent basis. Kids and Nurses PPEC CENTER is located at 3360 20th Street, Vero Beach. Their hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, call (772) 226-5059 or visit www.kidsandnursesppec.com.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A program many seniors r eturning home from hospitalizations rely on to help them through the first w eeks of recovery is in crisis mode. The Senior Resource Associations emergency meals on wheels program, funded entirely by grants from local philanthropic organizations and private donors, only has enough funds to continue feeding the more than 200 seniors in the program through October, staff members said. Each meal costs $7.86 and includes a hot, nutritious meal, a case manager to ov ersee the seniors dietary needs and a friendly volunteer checking up on them daily, caring about how they are doing, said Laura R oberts, nutrition director for the Senior Resource Association. W e ve got a little bit of funds to get us through O ctober, but we really rely on the community to open their hearts and take care of our elderly, Ms. Roberts said. The emergency meals on wheels program is for seniors released from the hospital or a rehabilitation center back to their own homes to continue their r ecovery. M any times what happens to seniors is they go home with doctors order to not drive, or they have physical handicaps that prevent them from functioning normally in their own home, therefore prohibiting them from shopping for and making their own nutritious food. M aybe theyve been in the hospital two or three w eeks and when they get home, all the food they had in their fridge is bad and needs to be thrown out. They cant go to the store to get more, so they end up getting poor nutrition, Ms. R oberts said. G ood nutrition is vital for healing properly, but what happens is the seniors dont get that and they end up back in the hospital. The national average of hospital readmissions within 30 days of being released is 20 percent. For clients in the emergency meals on wheels program, the percentage drops to 4.5 percent, a Senior Resource Association press release said. The average cost of readmittance to the hospital is $2,875 per day, the press r elease said. The emergency feeding program began in 2009. The first year, there were 716 meals provided to 23 local seniors. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, there were 213 clients that were served 5,676 meals. I find most of the clients are very grateful for us providing the food and for the daily check by the volunteers. Some people live alone and they get nervous, so seeing a friendly face come in is good, Ms. R oberts said.

The announcement was w ell-received by local law enforcement agencies, who said they would be grateful for the vigilance of the drivers. W e re very happy about this partnership, said M ichelle Morris, Sebastian P olice Chief. I t s nice to hear the see something, say something message disseminated out there, said Keith Touchberry new Fellsmere Police Chief. W aste Management didn t have to care, said David C urrey, Vero Beach Police Chief. B ut because the company is going the extra mile, that will allow law enforcement to do more to keep the community safer, he said. I ndian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar said community partnerships such as W aste Watch are valued and v aluable in the fight against crime. I t s an awesome feeling and an awesome day in I ndian River County, Sheriff Loar said. The program, copyrighted by W aste Management, is based on the popular N eighborhood Watch program, said Joe Vidovich, W aste Management security director. D ri vers are in a unique position on the streets of the community in that they drive slowly and cover a lot of territory at various hours of the day, which means they may see things other people might miss, Mr. V idovich said. I nstead of forgetting about seeing unusual or suspicious activity or behavior, drivers are trained to call the incident in to their dispatcher or 911. Mr. Vidovich said most people will call 911 for medical emergencies or a robbery or a car accident, but dont usually call to report strange activity, something that could help police learn of criminal activity before it has a chance to develop. Dr ivers also have the capability to activate an onboard camera to record footage of what they are r eporting. W aste Management drivers will not receive additional compensation to become W aste Watch trained, but can be eligible to receive gift cards for reporting activity, a small incentive to get people to do the right thing, W aste Management officials said.

TREASURE COAST When planning Halloween festivities its important to r emember that safety is essential for both the parents of little ghouls and goblins, but also for homeowners who will pass out the treats. He re are a few tips that will hopefully prepare parents for make the evening fun for everyone. 1. Encourage the kids to use facial make up instead of a mask. 2. Spend the extra dollar and purchase quality makeup. You dont want your kid to have that same look weeks later. 3. If possible, design the costume to accommodate a sweater or even a jacket underneath depending on the weather. 4. Make sure that all costumes and accessories are flame resistant. 5.Keep in mind how much walking theyll be doing for their age. You dont want to have to carry your little ghoul home. 6. Carry extra bags to dump candy in so the kids dont get ov erly tired. 7. If you have more than one kid to supervise, try bringing a wagon or cart to unload the candy in as they go door to door. 8.If youre taking other kids with you, set out the r ules before you leave and make sure they understand. 9.Instruct the kids to stay with you and off the lawns and out of the gardens. 10.Remind the kids to say thank you, even if they get crappy candy. 11.Be prepared to carry their props after a while. 12.Inspect all candy when you get home. Throw away homemade, unwrapped or open candy. 13.Let them have one piece of wrapped candy while on the walk as a treat/break. 14.Bring a flashlight and give them glow sticks to w ear. 15.Dont let them walk in the middle of the streets. Ca rs will still travel on roads O ctober 31st. 16.If the front light is out but they have Halloween decorations, there is a good chance that they have no more candy. 17.If the lights are out and dont have any decorations, the people are most likely hiding in the back and have no candy to give. 18.Carry a small, portable first aid kit for those little cuts and injuries. 19.Many people bring their dogs with them and dress them up in costumes such as a hot dog or a devil. I nstruct the kids to ask the o wner if they can pet the animal before they do. There is a good chance that the animal is embarrassed to be in a costume and may want to take it out on a kid. 20.When the kids go to the door, stay close by and watch carefully. 21.Set a strict curfew for older kids that go out on their own. 22.Kids are never to go into the house unless you know them. 23.If you have to drive, slow down more than usual. 24.Give the kids a snack before they go out. They wont complain about being hungry and want to eat the candy. 25.Take half the candy and place it in the freezer for use in the summer. He re are a few tips for homeowners on Halloween: 1. Keep the path to your door clear of all obstacles and well lit. 2. Dont terrorize the kids. It s all about fun and not making them wet their pants. 3. Be extremely careful with the candle in your pumpkin so that nothing bursts into flames, including a kids costume. Consider using a battery powered light or glow sticks. 4.Use flashlights, glow sticks or electric lights with the power cord safe and secured. 5. If you have a dog, keep it in another room and away from the door. 6. If youre going to give candy, give only store bought and wrapped items such as chocolate bars, chips, etc. Loose candy will be thrown out by the parents. 7. Alternative giving can include pencils, erasers or stickers with a Halloween theme. 8. If youve spent a lot of time on your Halloween display, you may want to consider putting some sort of safe fencing around it so that everyone can enjoy it without it being trampled. 9. Halloween candy is magically calorie and fat free on October 31st so feel free to use the one for you, one for me rule. 10.Check out our website for more tips and special effects.

Children recovering from stab woundsBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com tion to draft an ordinance that would regulate the sale and marketing of e-cigar ettes in the city limits. The proposed ordinance bans the sale of e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine to individuals younger than 18 and prohibits their use in places where traditional forms of smoking are already disallowed. The ordinance also includes language that prohibits self-service merchandising in the retail sale of cigarettes and associated products in order to limit accessibility to minors. The ordinance came up for discussion at the Oct. 15 council meeting, but comments and results of the discussion were not ready at press time. A ccording to a post on the w ebsite of Tobacco Free Par tnership of Indian River C ounty, e-cigarettes are a battery-powered nicotine delivery device that contains a cartridge filled with what the manufacturers often call liquid. The liquid often includes candy flavoring, nicotine and chemicals to create a vapor, the website said. The U.S. Food and Drug A dministration has said it intends to regulate e-cigar ettes as a tobacco product. I ndian River County Commissioner Bob Solari brought up the issue of ecigarettes during the Oct. 1 county commission meeting. The commissioners agreed to direct their attorney to develop language to add e-cigarettes, under the longer definition of electronic nicotine delivery device, to their current tobacco ordinances. In stores, the products are not required to be placed behind the counter with traditional cigarettes, something Commissioner Solari wants to see happen in Indian River County. The ordinance with the proposed changes will come before the commission in a future meeting. The ease of access to the e-cigarette by minors was also of great concern to Vero B each City Councilman D ick Winger. Ev ery year, there is data collected from middle school and high school students around the state that includes questions about tobacco use. The Florida Youth Tobacco survey in 2012 showed that 3.9 percent of middle school students and 8.4 percent of high school students have tried e-cigarettes, which represents a 30 percent increase among middles school students and a 40 percent increase among high school students, according to the Tobacco Free Partnership of Indian River County website.CigarettesF rom page A1 to join the group for coffee and conversation and learn about the more than 45 programs being offered in 201314.

I had my debit card number stolen at Walmart last Tuesday and somebody cleaned out my bank account! All is back to normal now, money back in account, new debit card, went to the bank yesterday morning and they had taken care of it. For tunately I had checked my bank account Wed. night (within the 48 hour period you're allowed to report unauthorized transactions) so a man at the customer service line which is open 24/7 was able to file a dispute and stop the transaction for me; all the money was r eplaced by Friday morning, thank goodness. I was using the new "Self-service" machine, they just put them in a month or so ago and the first time I used it I was delighted, it saves standing in long lines, etc. The second time I used it, not so good! I'd put money from my debit card on a shopping card to buy gas, so I could save three cents a gallon. Not much of a savings when somebody rips off your debit card number and uses it online to buy hundreds of dollars worth of stuff. So be careful. Christmas is around the corner and the scammers are out there looking for little ole ladies who don't look like they know enough to check their bank accounts on line every day.Cant feel safeThere are so many things to worry about these days. There are so many crimes being committed by young and old alike. Its 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. Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and D ish Network programming. These are old technology and old money-making 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 riches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Br avo, 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 entertainment process. Using digital channels will also spread the profits around to our local affiliates and, as a result, our local governments will benefit more. I am aware that these networks especially cable TV pay hefty fees for use of the local utilities, but new taxes are being discovered all the time, so why not from digital TV instead of satellite TV programming?F ood stamp run aroundI have a rant about our state's assistance programs. I have had to apply for food stamps since having to stop working due to injuries sustained from a car accident. Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very userfriendly and easier in the long run 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 receive 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 received it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I received 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 up-to-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 went 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, Got something to say?

It happens to every computer user eventually that dreaded call to tech support. This week, I will share some tips that can make that inevitable call to tech support go smoothly. The first question that y ou have to ask yourself is: "Who are you going to call?" That answer depends on the issues you are having. F or instance, if you are having Internet connection issues, you may want to call y our Internet provider (AT&T, Comcast, Road R unner, or whoever you are using to connect to the I nternet). If you are having hardware issues, such as problems accessing a printer or other device, you may need to contact support for that device. F or problems with your operating system (Windows won't load, etc.), a call to M icrosoft's tech support may be in order. If you are having problems with the computer itself (getting errors or beep codes as soon as you turn it on), you may want to call the manufacturer of the computer. That's a lot of decisions to make even before making the call, but you need to be clear about the nature of the problem. Answering these questions beforehand will help clarify your issues before you make the call. Also, don't forget the warranty. S ome devices may carry warranties that last years. It would be frustrating to fix or replace a device only to find out you could have had it fixed under warranty. Once you're clear on whom to call and why, sit in front of the computer when y ou make the call. There is little that any phone support technician can do for you if you are not sitting in front of the machine. You have to be his "eyes and ears" so make sure that when you call for help, you are at your computer. After spending some time on hold, (nothing I can help with there) you will finally get someone on the line. R emember: This person is new to your issue and has no idea what you have or have not tried yet. He's going to ask you questions and perhaps have you click some things. Ev en if he is having you click something you have already clicked, comments such as, "I already tried that," don't help. He hasn't tried anything yet and needs to start somewhere. Also keep in mind that even if your tech support person has a thick accent, he probably does this type of thing 40 hours a week and knows exactly what he's looking for. When he asks you to click something and you don't immediately see it, don't instantly reply with, "I don't have that." Do a thorough scan of all of the icons in whatever screen you are looking in and make sure. N ine times out of 10, you'll find it. F ollow the directions the support person gives you, and try not to get distracted by all the other stuff that will pop up on the way. Stay focused on his or her instructions and you'll usually get through most issues quickly and without too much frustration. H opefully, you won't have to make that call, but when y ou do, having as much information in front of you will help. Things such as any specific error messages that may be popping up, what you were doing when the problem occurred and so on. This information is invaluable to the tech support person on the other end of the phone. If you have a "quick question," that's great. Just r emember that 99 percent of all tech support calls are just quick questions. It's the answer that can drag on for hours. So how did I come up with this week's subject matter? W ell, Ive been doingT ips for talking to tech support COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Letter to the editorSupport the common core standardsTo the editor: This is not the time to back away from supporting the Co mmon Core Standards. The Common Core Standards have been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. Governor Scott has been a supporter for three years, but now states he supports the standards but not the test. S tate Representative Debbie Mayfield has proposed a bill, (HB25), requiring more extensive public hearings and cost analysis for implementing the standards. The establishment of national standards and a national test is the BEST way to prepare students in the United S tates. For too long, students have been evaluated by state tests. The performance on a state test does not show how w ell educated the Florida students are in comparison to students throughout the country. For the Governor to say he supports the Common Core Standards but not the national test is counter-productive. How ever, I can understand the Governors wanting to create a state test using the Common Core Objectives. For y ears, the Florida legislators have operated the educational system on the cheap. Upon Governor Scott being elected, he reduced the education budget by $1 billion dollars. To use a state produced test will create the results the legislators want the public to see curve the results any way you want. The students in Florida deserve a good education built upon the Common Core Standards and national testing. The states collectively will be creating the national test; it will not be the federal government. Only then will the students of Florida really understand how they are performing when matched with students throughout the United S tates. Florida is famous for producing some of the best high school football teams and marching bands. Now is the time for Florida to produce the best students in the United S tates.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Education Foundation of Indian River County r eceived a $5,000 grant to support the students at O sceola Magnet. The project will launch a new science program to create innovation stations in classrooms. This will give students the opportunity to learn and apply STEM skills beyond the classroom through an I nnovation Generation grant from the Motorola S olutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola So lutions Inc. The Motorola Solutions Foundation provided $50,000 for a second year to challenge Floridas district-wide local education foundations to inspire students through projects designed to help them solve real-world problems in science, math, technology and engineering areas this school year through a grant to the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations. S ince 2007, the program has provided $3.4 million in support of STEM education programs, supporting more than 400 school, museum and nonprofit programs across the United States and Canada. The Innovation Generation program awards funds to organizations such as Organization that foster and support STEM initiatives for teachers and U.S. preschool through university students especially girls and underr epresented minorities. Local Education Foundations project was one of nine chosen from among 21 applicants to receive $5,000 through a competitive judging process with each application being reviewed and scored by a panel of STEM industry professionals through the CFEF. I have spoken to the students at Osceola Magnet School about this grant and they are very excited, as it will be used for a LEGO project that will enhance their STEM experiences, said Dr. Fran Adams, Superintendent of Schools, commented. They cannot wait to get started! We are extremely grateful to M otorola Solutions Foundation and to the Education F oundation of Indian River C ounty for this opportunity for our students. W e are so honored to partner with organizations like the Education Foundation of Indian River County who are helping to create the worlds future innovators and technology professionals, said Matt Blakely, director, Motorola Solutions Foundation. I nnovation Generation is a part of Motorola Solutions larger commitment to engaging youth in STEM education. Beyond funding, O sceola Magnet will receive ongoing support from M otorola Solutions employee volunteers, who will act as mentors, tutors and experts in STEM careers.

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 ye s, 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 holdup 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 were allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted. We're hungry.Stop for busesC orrect me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a law to stop when a school bus is flashing its lights and slowing down to stop? Don't drivers realize that means a child is near and about to walk to get on that bus? That child could be coming in any direction. Drivers be aware. There have been too many tragedies already because cars/trucks do not stop. I take my granddaughter to her bus stop at 7 a.m. I have had to jump from my car and stand in the middle of the street waving my arms as my granddaughter crossed the street to board her school bus. Only then do they start slowing down. W ake up, drivers, before y ou get behind the wheel in the morning. It's the law: stop.RantsF rom page A6 Indian River State College Study Abroad students gain first-hand perspectives of different economies and cultures by visiting countries and cities around the world.

YOULLKEEPCOMINGBACKFORMORE.See our Full Menu at www.vicspizzafl.comOut & about SEBASTIAN For delicious sandwiches made with fresh ingredients and prepared in full view, try 3AM Deli in Sebastian, just south of Bay Street Pharmacy. While you cant pop in at 3 a.m., during the daytime business owner and chef J ohn Hicks will enthusiastically whip up a hearty sandwich using fresh ingredients and homemade sauces and dressings. The restaurants name comes from the initials of his wife, Allyson, son, Aiden, 7, and daughter, Andrea, 8, but the food prepared in the kitchen all comes from Mr. Hicks. A graduate from the C ulinary Institute of America in New York, Mr. H icks has worked in many kitchens in various positions, but at 3AM Deli, he can focus on the food he wants to make, and help people make smart decisions about what they eat. One of the more popular dishes at the deli is the S loLo Pork sandwich. M aking the meat for this incredible lunchtime meal is a three-day process, but the end result is well worth the effort, Mr. Hicks said. The slow-cooked pulled pork is piled onto a bun and smothered in a house barbeque sauce. While some barbeque sauces may be thick and heavy, the house sauce is light, and though generally mild, has hints of sugary ingredients with a pop of spicy tang. To finish off the top layer of the sandwich, Mr. H icks creates a cabbage and apple slaw with a semi-sweet dressing. The crunchy and cool slaw juxtaposes perfectly against the soft bread and the hot pork. M aking good-tasting, fresh food and being intentional to make the dishes in a healthy way is something very important to Mr. Hicks. I m not organic yet, but I would love to be. I buy fresh produce, meats, everything. Im as close to organic as I can, Mr. H icks said. Y ou shouldnt need a degree in chemistry to know what youre eating, he said. O ther menu items include the Parma John, a breaded fried chicken parmesan sandwich topped with homemade r ed sauce, arugula and mozzarella; Skirts Up, a marinated and seared steak sandwich with lettuce red onion and tomato and Wrapsody, a flour tortilla wrap filled with seasoned ground beef, black bean paste, orangecilantro sour cream, cheddar cheese, lettuce and onions. The L-shaped bar and few bar stools in the deli are a good place to slow down and chow down. And if you have time and want to talk, I can talk about food all day, Mr. H icks said with a laugh. Br eakfast items and sandwiches are also available all day. F or someone who is used to eating on the go, but wants to be more conscientious about the ingredients they consume, the Nonna Scramble is a filling sandwich that fits the bill. In addition to eggs, the sandwich has potatoes, garlic, parmesan cheese, and a choice of bacon, sausage, salami or ham.

This past weekend my wife, Carol, and I had the immense pleasure of visiting the old Cypress Gar dens in Winter Haven. The park is now called Legoland and it has something to offer for all ages. U pon first entering the park, you are greeted by an array of colorful animal figures made from Lego bricks. In fact, most everything you see is made from colorful Legos throughout the park. If you have been there when it was Cypress Gar dens, you will recognize many of the buildings and landmarks. In the center of the park instead of topiaries and plant gardens, you will find miniature cities all made from Legos. It is highly detailed and amazing to look at. You will need quite a bit of time to explore this part of the park. As you move deeper into the park, you will see the all-familiar waterfall with all the landscaping just as it was in the old park. The landscaping is amazing with a varied collection of tropical and native plants surrounding the water fall. It is truly an amazing sight. If you follow the park all the way to the end, you will hit the pot of gold. This is where the original Cypress Gar dens botanical garden is located. It is worth the price of admission just to see these gardens. The botanical gardens abound with plant species from both native to varieties from all corners of the globe. The garden paths are clean and the gardens are all welltrimmed and manicured. While on your stroll, be sure to have your picture taken at the historic gazebo. Also, be sure to spend some time at the old Banyan tree that is in the center of the gardens. After leaving the gardens, be sure to see the ski show. Although themed different from the original, it is truly entertaining to see. T oday I want to talk about a couple of the plants that I encountered on the tour that has a very interesting background. The first is a plant called the Travelers P alm. The Travelers Palm (ravenala madagascariensis) is actually not a palm at all. This plant is a member of the bird-of-paradise family. In fact, looking at the plant from a distance, it is very difficult to tell them apart. This plant has a very interesting history. Back in the explorer days, this plant actually was a source of water for travelers, hence the name travelers palm. The stems hold rainwater that can be used as an emergency drinking supply. Each stem can hold as much as a pint of water. I ts huge paddle shaped leaves that indeed have both a tropical and a majestic appearance characterizes the plant. Tr avelers Palm is a very easy to grow plant choice and can really offer a distinct tropical look to any landscape. The plant requires a fairly sunny location and should be planted so the shape of the plant goes from east to w est. I was not able to do that with mine but the plant is still thriving beautifully. They require moderate water but once w ell-established they are very easy to maintain. The main maintenance issue with this plant would be trimming off the dry and/or broken branches. Although quite hardy, they can be damaged in high winds or hard freeze conditions. My plant has been through both and has recovered every time. Y ou can fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer during the summer growing season if desired. This will help to keep the dark green leaf color and aid in faster plant growth. These plants are available at many local nurseries. The next plant I would like to mention is a variety known as the Song of India. The Song of India is a tropical plant that has long narrow leaves that have green centers with a creamy y ellow edge. The plant can grow up to four feet high. This plant is often used as an indoor tropical but can also be planted outdoors in a tropical garden or on a deck or patio in a pot. Song of India requires bright light but will burn if placed in all day direct sun. The plant is easy to grow and only r equires small amounts of water. They do not like their feet to be soaking wet. Since the plant loves humidity, it grows quite well in our area. This plant is widely available at many local nurseries. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

The club sponsored my w eekly golf radio show for several years, and I enjoyed a round at the course several times a month for quite some time. I know the course almost as well as the back of my hand. A bout four years ago, Ray F inch purchased the course. He spent the next year or so using his knowledge and experience to complete many upgrades to the course and facilities. One of his first upgrades was to put asphalt and curbing in the parking lot and bag drop areas. The curbing may not sound like much, but it helped tremendously with traffic flow and drainage, and really set off the new landscaping around the clubhouse and cart barn. This past summer H ammock Creek closed from early June until just this past week. Finch's desire was to upgrade the greens with new Tiff Eagle grass, improve drainage on and around the greens and drop a few more tweaks here and there around the course. H ammock Creek, located within a mile of Florida's Tu r npike and also I-95, originally opened in 1995. The course was the first designed by the father-son team of Jack Nicklaus and J ack Nicklaus II and quickly became one of the finest daily fee courses in the area. It was also home to the Golden Bear Tour, hosted many mini tours, U.S. Open Q ualifying, and even hosted the Taste of Martin County. Those who have played H ammock Creek know it for its expansive fairways, large greens, variety of holes and friendly staff. The course is also tops with many lady golfers as it features few forced carries and greens complexes that allow for many different shots around the green. The course also features the Visage GPS yardage system on every cart, allowing for easier club selection and hole management. There are even tips on how to play each hole. If yo u re hungry, you can also order some food to pick up at the turn or have waiting when you finish your round. The staff can even use the system to alert you to approaching storms or r espond to a lost club or emergency. One impressive thing that I learned is that the entire staff has returned from the summer hiatus. The same smiling, friendly faces that have been a staple at H ammock Creek are there again awaiting your return. F or me it was like seeing old friends and it immediately put me in a great mood. On the course, golfers who have played here before will find just a few changes other than the new and impressively improved greens. The most obvious is the newly paved cart paths. Fr om the first tee all the way to the 18th green, the paths have been fixed and r epaved. It's a nice smooth r ide the whole way around. The other changes come from clearing out or thinning palmettos, knocking down tall grass and previously un-kept areas to keep golfers from having a blind tee shot. The area behind the third green is one such place. U sed to be if you hit your approach long, the ball would tumble across the cart path and simply disappear in tall weeds and palmettos. That area has been cleaned out and you now have a good 10 feet for y our ball to settle. The areas directly in front of the fifth and seventh tees have also been cleaned up and knocked down, allowing golfers an unimpeded view of the fairway. The cart path on number five, no longer backtracks toward the fairway before heading ov er to the sixth tee, making for a safer environment when the group behind you is ready to hit their second shots. H ammock Creek has five sets of tees playing from just ov er 5,000yards up to 7,119yards. The course is usually set up to play hard and fast, giving your drives some extra distance. There is also plenty of room to hit driver on almost every hole. There are few nasty bunkers to avoid, but most wont r uin your day should you find them. F inally, what you've been waiting to hear about: the greens. They are, to put it mildly, wonderful. Every putt I hit rolled smoothly and predictably. They are firm and fast, and should only get better as they mature. The design of each appears to be almost exactly as it was before. No strange bumps or false fronts have been slipped in on us. It truly is like going back home. F or more information, visit www.hammockcreekgolfclub.com or call (772) 220-2599 and speak to any of the clubs friendly staff.

Nonprofit, theatre partner for the annual dancing eventINDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Indian River County H ealthy Start Coalition and Riverside Theatre are partnering to present the sixth annual Dancing with Veros S tars. It will be held at the theatre on Saturday, May 10, as one of the final events of the 2014 social season. O ur partnership with Riverside Theatre was a winwin for both of our non-profit organizations last season, and we are all looking forward to our new cast of dancers and instructors as we move forward with our plans said Kathie Cain, executive director of IRC Healthy S tart Coalition. O ne of our missions is to assist in the personal development of the individual child through performance and education, said Jon M oses, Riverside Theatres managing director. Being able to produce this amazing event for the community was an honor for us. Our production staff has been putting together ideas since the dancing show closed our season in May, so we can all look forward to an even better experience this go around. The event, chaired by Cheryl Gerstner and Laura G uttridge, both star dancers in previous competitions, will once again offer an evening of tempting tangos, sizzling salsas and jiving jitterbugs, along with some new or unexpected twists and surprises. It will be performed by ten local stars matched with professional dance instructors.

S tar dancers, paired with their instructors, will train for 20 hours over several months and gather community votes in advance of the evening on the website, www.Dancingwithverostars.com (now under construction) and then later at the dance competition itself. Each dollar r aised will equate to a vote for the dancer. All dancers will be judged on 50 percent money raised for Healthy S tart Coalition and 50 percent based on their dancing skills.

The $1.2 million proposal would have granted CareHere, a healthcare organization based in N ashville, the right to be a thirdparty administrator for a health and wellness clinic for the employees of the Indian River C ounty school district and their dependents, as well as retirees. The school board voted on the proposal during the Oct. 8 business meeting, but the 2-2 tie vote means the project will be dead on the table. The school board is down one member since the resignation of J eff Pegler, who left to take a job in another district. Gov. Rick Scott has not yet appointed someone to fill the v acancy, so there is no way to break the tie vote. The school board instructed staff more than a year ago to investigate CareHere as a potential partner in bringing employees another healthcare option, but not enough of the sitting members we re convinced the company orHealth clinic a no go with school board stalemate SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 11, No. 4 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Oct. 18, 2013 H OW TO T ALK TECHTips for talking to technical support P ageA6 INSIDE 077994 1961 Old Dixie Hwy, Vero Beach, FL 32960772-834-7334www.BilbursBarberSpa.com www.facebook.com/bilbursV oted #1 Barber Shop by Vero Beach Readers Cypress Gardens still holds charm through Legoland attractions Runners were up before dawn to take part in the Beachside Half Marathon.

The Kids and Nurses PPEC Center, licensed in January of 2013, became a dream come true for parents who needed to drive and transport their children to another county for care. The center allows Medicaid eligible children, from birth through age 20, with medically complex conditions to receive continual medical care in a non-residential setting. In this setting they receive specialized nursing and rehabilitation. Ms. Scavella, RRT-PPEC Administer, is a trained respiratory therapist with more than 30 years of experience in the healthcare f ield. She has worked with medically fragile children since 2000 and in 2005, along with five other healthcare professionals founded P A TCHES PPEC, in Florida City. After managing an expansion of the PATCHES PPEC in Fort Pierce, she left to start a PPEC center in Vero Beach. Linda McNeal, R.N., M.S.N., a nurse practitioner in obstetric and womens health nursing, with years of experience working with neonatal and pediatric patients. The two, along with a knowledgeable and highly skilled 13 person staff, including a medical director, PPEC administrator, a dir ector of nursing, nurses, practical nurses and nursing assistants, the center is an easy choice for top of the line care. The most frequent issues seen are children with seizure disorders, congenital heart defects, chronic asthma, chromosome disorde rs and more congenital abnormalities. They also provide nursing services and rehabilitation therapies, such as physical, occupational and speech therapies. Each child is surrounded by healthcare professionals, but should an emergency arise, a nurse will accompany the child to the ho spital. The center reduces homebound isolation and provides a cost-effective alternative to traditional home health care. Children may be referred by any individual or agency, however, they must have a prescription for PPEC services and therapies fr om their primary physician to attend. Their goal is let the residents know that there are services available, free of charge, for their children who may have a chron ic illness, and utilizes the emergency r oom on a frequent basis. Kids and Nurses PPEC CENTER is located at 3360 20th Street, Vero Beach.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A program many seniors r eturning home from hospitalizations rely on to help them through the first w eeks of recovery is in crisis mode. The Senior Resource Association's emergency meals on wheels program, funded entirely by grants from local philanthropic organizations and private donors, only has enough funds to continue feeding the more than 200 seniors in the program through October, staff members said. Each meal costs $7.86 and includes a hot, nutritious meal, a case manager to ov ersee the senior's dietary needs and a friendly volunteer checking up on them daily, caring about how they are doing, said Laura R oberts, nutrition director for the Senior Resource Association. "W e' ve got a little bit of funds to get us through O ctober, but we really rely on the community to open their hearts and take care of our elderly," Ms. Roberts said. "The emergency meals on wheels program is for seniors released from the hospital or a rehabilitation center back to their own homes to continue their r ecovery." M any times what happens to seniors is they go home with doctor's order to not drive, or they have physical handicaps that prevent them from functioning normally in their own home, therefore prohibiting them from shopping for and making their own nutritious food. "M aybe they've been in the hospital two or three w eeks and when they get home, all the food they had in their fridge is bad and needs to be thrown out. They can't go to the store to get more, so they end up getting poor nutrition," Ms. R oberts said. "G ood nutrition is vital for healing properly, but what happens is the seniors don't get that and they end up back in the hospital." The national average of hospital readmissions within 30 days of being released is 20 percent. For clients in the emergency meals on wheels program, the percentage drops to 4.5 percent, a Senior Resource Association press release said. The average cost of readmittance to the hospital is $2,875 per day, the press r elease said. The emergency feeding program began in 2009. The first year, there were 716 meals provided to 23 local seniors. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, there were 213 clients that were served 5,676 meals. "I find most of the clients are very grateful for us providing the food and for the daily check by the volunteers. Some people live alone and they get nervous, so seeing a friendly face come in is good," Ms. R oberts said.

Chairwoman Carol Johnson and board member Claudia Jimenez were both in favor of the clinic, while board members Karen Disney-Brombach and Matt Mc C ain voted against it. A ccording to backup material provided to the board members, the clinic would have offered primary care,, health risk assessments, acute and urgent care, immunizations, injections, commercial driver license physicals, exams and workplace screenings, drug testing, prescription drugs, pharmaceutical dispensing, disease management and primary care case management.ClinicF rom page A1 in the area will be joining more than 1,800 other Waste M anagement drivers in F lorida as participants in the Waste Watch program, said Amy Boyson, community affairs manager. The announcement was w ell-received by local law enforcement agencies, who said they would be grateful for the vigilance of the drivers. "W e' re very happy about this partnership," said M ichelle Morris, Sebastian P olice Chief. "I t' s nice to hear the see something, say something' message disseminated out there," said Keith Touchberry new Fellsmere Police Chief. "W aste Management didn' t have to care," said David C urrey, Vero Beach Police Chief. B ut because the company is going the extra mile, that will allow law enforcement to do more to keep the community safer, he said. I ndian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar said community partnerships such as W aste Watch are valued and v aluable in the fight against crime. "I t' s an awesome feeling and an awesome day in I ndian River County," Sheriff Loar said. The program, copyrighted by W aste Management, is based on the popular N eighborhood Watch program, said Joe Vidovich, W aste Management security director. "D ri vers are in a unique position on the streets of the community in that they drive slowly and cover a lot of territory at various hours of the day, which means they may see things other people might miss," Mr. V idovich said. I nstead of forgetting about seeing unusual or suspicious activity or behavior, drivers are trained to call the incident in to their dispatcher or 911. Mr. Vidovich said most people will call 911 for medical emergencies or a robbery or a car accident, but don't usually call to report strange activity, something that could help police learn of criminal activity before it has a chance to develop. Dr ivers also have the capability to activate an onboard camera to record footage of what they are r eporting. W aste Management drivers will not receive additional compensation to become W aste Watch trained, but can be eligible to receive gift cards for reporting activity, a small incentive to get people to do the right thing, W aste Management officials said.

TREASURE COAST When planning Halloween festivities its important to r emember that safety is essential for both the parents of little ghouls and goblins, but also for homeowners who will pass out the treats. He re are a few tips that will hopefully prepare parents for make the evening fun for everyone. 1. Encourage the kids to use facial make up instead of a mask. 2. Spend the extra dollar and purchase quality makeup. You don't want your kid to have that same look weeks later. 3. If possible, design the costume to accommodate a sweater or even a jacket underneath depending on the weather. 4. Make sure that all costumes and accessories are flame resistant. 5.Keep in mind how much walking they'll be doing for their age. You don't want to have to carry your little ghoul home. 6. Carry extra bags to dump candy in so the kids don't get ov erly tired. 7. If you have more than one kid to supervise, try bringing a wagon or cart to unload the candy in as they go door to door. 8.If you're taking other kids with you, set out the r ules before you leave and make sure they understand. 9.Instruct the kids to stay with you and off the lawns and out of the gardens. 10.Remind the kids to say thank you, even if they get crappy candy. 11.Be prepared to carry their props after a while. 12.Inspect all candy when you get home. Throw away homemade, unwrapped or open candy. 13.Let them have one piece of wrapped candy while on the walk as a treat/break. 14.Bring a flashlight and give them glow sticks to w ear. 15.Don't let them walk in the middle of the streets. Ca rs will still travel on roads O ctober 31st. 16.If the front light is out but they have Halloween decorations, there is a good chance that they have no more candy. 17.If the lights are out and don't have any decorations, the people are most likely hiding in the back and have no candy to give. 18.Carry a small, portable first aid kit for those little cuts and injuries. 19.Many people bring their dogs with them and dress them up in costumes such as a hot dog or a devil. I nstruct the kids to ask the o wner if they can pet the animal before they do. There is a good chance that the animal is embarrassed to be in a costume and may want to take it out on a kid. 20.When the kids go to the door, stay close by and watch carefully. 21.Set a strict curfew for older kids that go out on their own. 22.Kids are never to go into the house unless you know them. 23.If you have to drive, slow down more than usual. 24.Give the kids a snack before they go out. They won't complain about being hungry and want to eat the candy. 25.Take half the candy and place it in the freezer for use in the summer. He re are a few tips for homeowners on Halloween: 1. Keep the path to your door clear of all obstacles and well lit. 2. Don't terrorize the kids. It 's all about fun and not making them wet their pants. 3. Be extremely careful with the candle in your pumpkin so that nothing bursts into flames, including a kid's costume. Consider using a battery powered light or glow sticks. 4.Use flashlights, glow sticks or electric lights with the power cord safe and secured. 5. If you have a dog, keep it in another room and away from the door. 6. If you're going to give candy, give only store bought and wrapped items such as chocolate bars, chips, etc. Loose candy will be thrown out by the parents. 7. Alternative giving can include pencils, erasers or stickers with a Halloween theme. 8. If you've spent a lot of time on your Halloween display, you may want to consider putting some sort of safe fencing around it so that everyone can enjoy it without it being trampled. 9. Halloween candy is magically calorie and fat free on October 31st so feel free to use the "one for you, one for me" rule. 10.Check out our website for more tips and special effects.

IRSC Board of Trustees members Werner Bols, Chairman, of Stuart, and J ose' Conrado, of Vero B each, were present at the AC CT Leadership Conference when the award was announced. "We couldn't be more proud," Mr. Bols csaid. "This recognition of Dr Massey is exceptionally w ell-deserved." "O ne of the hallmarks of Dr Massey's presidency is his intense commitment to community needs, building numerous collaborative partnerships at the local, state and national levels to foster economic and workforce development," Mr. B ols said. "Under his leadership, IRSC has become a nationally respected, highperforming institution with far-reaching benefits for the Tr easure Coast and our students. In recognition of Dr. M assey's dedication to excellence and world-class r esults, the IRSC Board whole-heartedly commends and congratulates him."

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Two children are recovering from physical injury and their stepfather is behind bars. K eith James Underwood, 43, of Vero Beach, was arrested in Fort Pierce by an I ndian River County Sheriff's Office detective last w eek and charged with child abuse and domestic violence aggravated battery. He was booked into the St. L ucie County Jail, but could be transferred to the Indian River County Jail. At press time, Mr. Underwood was being held without bail. A ccording to reports from the sheriff's office, Mr. U nderwood and his wife were involved in several verbal disturbances in the evening of Oct. 17 to the morning of Oct. 18, and I ndian River County Sheriff's Office deputies r esponded to their residence twice in the early hours of Oct. 18. D eputies responded a third time to the scene when it was reported that Mr. U nderwood attacked his wife while she was on the sofa with her 12-year-old son. The boy and his sister, a 15-year-old girl, attempted to intervene in a physical fight between their mother and stepfather, resulting in the boy being stabbed in the head and the girl suffering a sprained wrist. The children's mother also received some scratches, but all three have been released from hospital treatment, a press r elease said. In vestigators said Mr. U nderwood left his home in Ve ro B each and went to a W algreens in Fort Pierce where he contacted the Fort Pierce Police Department. Officers responded and he was taken into custody at the request of the Indian River County law enforcement. He initially told investigators that he acted in selfdefense, however witness testimony and physical evidence at the scene contradicted that statement, a press release said.

Children recovering from stab woundsBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com tion to draft an ordinance that would regulate the sale and marketing of e-cigar ettes in the city limits. The proposed ordinance bans the sale of e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine to individuals younger than 18 and prohibits their use in places where traditional forms of smoking are already disallowed. The ordinance also includes language that prohibits self-service merchandising in the retail sale of cigarettes and associated products in order to limit accessibility to minors. The ordinance came up for discussion at the Oct. 15 council meeting, but comments and results of the discussion were not ready at press time. A ccording to a post on the w ebsite of Tobacco Free Pa r tnership of Indian River C ounty, e-cigarettes are a "battery-powered nicotine delivery device that contains a cartridge filled with what the manufacturers often call liquid.'" The liquid' often includes candy flavoring, nicotine and chemicals to create a vapor,'" the website said. The U.S. Food and Drug A dministration has said it intends to regulate e-cigar ettes as a tobacco product. I ndian River County Commissioner Bob Solari brought up the issue of ecigarettes during the Oct. 1 county commission meeting. The commissioners agreed to direct their attorney to develop language to add e-cigarettes, under the longer definition of "electronic nicotine delivery device," to their current tobacco ordinances. In stores, the products are not required to be placed behind the counter with traditional cigarettes, something Commissioner Solari wants to see happen in Indian River County. The ordinance with the proposed changes will come before the commission in a future meeting. The ease of access to the e-cigarette by minors was also of great concern to Vero B each City Councilman D ick Winger. Ev ery year, there is data collected from middle school and high school students around the state that includes questions about tobacco use. The Florida Youth Tobacco survey in 2012 showed that 3.9 percent of middle school students and 8.4 percent of high school students have tried e-cigarettes, which represents a 30 percent increase among middles school students and a 40 percent increase among high school students, according to the Tobacco Fr ee Partnership of Indian River County website.CigarettesF rom page A1 to join the group for coffee and conversation and learn about the more than 45 programs being offered in 201314.

I had my debit card number stolen at Walmart last Tuesday and somebody cleaned out my bank account! All is back to normal now, money back in account, new debit card, went to the bank yesterday morning and they had taken care of it. Fo r tunately I had checked my bank account Wed. night (within the 48 hour period you're allowed to report unauthorized transactions) so a man at the customer service line which is open 24/7 was able to file a dispute and stop the transaction for me; all the money was r eplaced by Friday morning, thank goodness. I was using the new "Self-service" machine, they just put them in a month or so ago and the first time I used it I was delighted, it saves standing in long lines, etc. The second time I used it, not so good! I'd put money from my debit card on a shopping card to buy gas, so I could save three cents a gallon. Not much of a savings when somebody rips off your debit card number and uses it online to buy hundreds of dollars' worth of stuff. So be careful. Christmas is around the corner and the scammers are out there looking for little ole ladies who don't look like they know enough to check their bank accounts on line every day.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. Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and D ish Network programming. These are old technology and old money-making 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 riches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Br avo, 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 entertainment process. Using digital channels will also spread the profits around to our local affiliates and, as a result, our local governments will benefit more. I am aware that these networks especially cable TV pay hefty fees for use of the local utilities, but new taxes are being discovered all the time, so why not from digital TV instead of satellite TV programming?F ood stamp run aroundI have a rant about our state's assistance programs. I have had to apply for food stamps since having to stop working due to injuries sustained from a car accident. Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very userfriendly and easier in the long run 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 receive 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 received it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I received 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 up-to-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 went 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, Got something to say?

It happens to every computer user eventually that dreaded call to tech support. This week, I will share some tips that can make that inevitable call to tech support go smoothly. The first question that y ou have to ask yourself is: "Who are you going to call?" That answer depends on the issues you are having. F or instance, if you are having Internet connection issues, you may want to call y our Internet provider (AT&T, Comcast, Road R unner, or whoever you are using to connect to the I nternet). If y ou are having hardware issues, such as problems accessing a printer or other device, you may need to contact support for that device. F or problems with your operating system (Windows won't load, etc.), a call to M icrosoft's tech support may be in order. If y ou are having problems with the computer itself (getting errors or beep codes as soon as you turn it on), you may want to call the manufacturer of the computer. That's a lot of decisions to make even before making the call, but you need to be clear about the nature of the problem. Answering these questions beforehand will help clarify your issues before you make the call. Also, don't forget the warranty. S ome devices may carry warranties that last years. It would be frustrating to fix or replace a device only to find out you could have had it fixed under warranty. Once you're clear on whom to call and why, sit in front of the computer when y ou make the call. There is little that any phone support technician can do for you if you are not sitting in front of the machine. You have to be his "eyes and ears" so make sure that when you call for help, you are at your computer. After spending some time on hold, (nothing I can help with there) you will finally get someone on the line. R emember: This person is new to your issue and has no idea what you have or have not tried yet. He's going to ask you questions and perhaps have you click some things. Ev en if he is having you click something you have already clicked, comments such as, "I already tried that," don't help. He hasn't tried anything yet and needs to start somewhere. Also keep in mind that even if your tech support person has a thick accent, he probably does this type of thing 40 hours a week and knows exactly what he's looking for. When he asks you to click something and you don't immediately see it, don't instantly reply with, "I don't have that." Do a thorough scan of all of the icons in whatever screen you are looking in and make sure. N ine times out of 10, you'll find it. F ollow the directions the support person gives you, and try not to get distracted by all the other stuff that will pop up on the way. Stay focused on his or her instructions and you'll usually get through most issues quickly and without too much frustration. H opefully, you won't have to make that call, but when y ou do, having as much information in front of you will help. Things such as any specific error messages that may be popping up, what you were doing when the problem occurred and so on. This information is invaluable to the tech support person on the other end of the phone. If y ou have a "quick question," that's great. Just r emember that 99 percent of all tech support calls are just quick questions. It's the answer that can drag on for hours. So how did I come up with this week's subject matter? W ell, I've been doingT ips for talking to tech support COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Letter to the editorSupport the common core standardsTo the editor: This is not the time to back away from supporting the Co mmon Core Standards. The Common Core Standards have been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. Governor Scott has been a supporter for three years, but now states he supports the standards but not the test. S tate Representative Debbie Mayfield has proposed a bill, (HB25), requiring more extensive public hearings and cost analysis for implementing the standards. The establishment of national standards and a national test is the BEST way to prepare students in the United S tates. For too long, students have been evaluated by state tests. The performance on a state test does not show how w ell educated the Florida students are in comparison to students throughout the country. For the Governor to say he supports the Common Core Standards but not the national test is counter-productive. How ever, I can understand the Governors wanting to create a state test using the Common Core Objectives. For y ears, the Florida legislators have operated the educational system on the cheap. Upon Governor Scott being elected, he reduced the education budget by $1 billion dollars. To use a state produced test will create the results the legislators want the public to see curve the results any way you want. The students in Florida deserve a good education built upon the Common Core Standards and national testing. The states collectively will be creating the national test; it will not be the federal government. Only then will the students of Florida really understand how they are performing when matched with students throughout the United S tates.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Education Foundation of Indian River County r eceived a $5,000 grant to support the students at O sceola Magnet. The project will launch a new science program to create "innovation stations" in classrooms. This will give students the opportunity to learn and apply STEM skills beyond the classroom through an I nnovation Generation grant from the Motorola S olutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola So lutions Inc. The Motorola Solutions Foundation provided $50,000 for a second year to challenge Florida's district-wide local education foundations to inspire students through projects designed to help them solve real-world problems in science, math, technology and engineering areas this school year through a grant to the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations. S ince 2007, the program has provided $3.4 million in support of STEM education programs, supporting more than 400 school, museum and nonprofit programs across the United States and Canada. The Innovation Generation program awards funds to organizations such as Organization that foster and support STEM initiatives for teachers and U.S. preschool through university students especially girls and underr epresented minorities. Local Education Foundation's project was one of nine chosen from among 21 applicants to receive $5,000 through a competitive judging process with each application being reviewed and scored by a panel of STEM industry professionals through the CFEF. "I have spoken to the students at Osceola Magnet School about this grant and they are very excited, as it will be used for a LEGO project that will enhance their STEM experiences," said Dr. Fran Adams, Superintendent of Schools, commented. "They cannot wait to get started! We are extremely grateful to M otorola Solutions Foundation and to the Education F oundation of Indian River C ounty for this opportunity for our students." "W e are so honored to partner with organizations like the Education Foundation of Indian River County who are helping to create the world's future innovators and technology professionals," said Matt Blakely, director, Motorola Solutions Foundation. I nnovation Generation is a part of Motorola Solutions' larger commitment to engaging youth in STEM education. Beyond funding, O sceola Magnet will receive ongoing support from M otorola Solutions employee volunteers, who will act as mentors, tutors and experts in STEM careers.

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 month's allotment of food stamps. I have called DCF three times and got through: once a lady told me that ye s, 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 holdup 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 were allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted. We're hungry.Stop for busesC orrect me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a law to stop when a school bus is flashing its lights and slowing down to stop? Don't drivers realize that means a child is near and about to walk to get on that bus? That child could be coming in any direction. Drivers be aware. There have been too many tragedies already because cars/trucks do not stop. I take my granddaughter to her bus stop at 7 a.m. I have had to jump from my car and stand in the middle of the street waving my arms as my granddaughter crossed the street to board her school bus. Only then do they start slowing down. W ake up, drivers, before y ou get behind the wheel in the morning. It's the law: stop.RantsF rom page A6 Indian River State College Study Abroad students gain first-hand perspectives of different economies and cultures by visiting countries and cities around the world.

While you can't pop in at 3 a.m., during the daytime business owner and chef J ohn Hicks will enthusiastically whip up a hearty sandwich using fresh ingredients and homemade sauces and dressings. The restaurant's name comes from the initials of his wife, Allyson, son, Aiden, 7, and daughter, Andrea, 8, but the food prepared in the kitchen all comes from Mr. Hicks. A graduate from the C ulinary Institute of America in New York, Mr. H icks has worked in many kitchens in various positions, but at 3AM Deli, he can focus on the food he wants to make, and help people make smart decisions about what they eat. One of the more popular dishes at the deli is the S loLo Pork sandwich. "M aking the meat for this incredible lunchtime meal is a three-day process, but the end result is well worth the effort," Mr. Hicks said. The slow-cooked pulled pork is piled onto a bun and smothered in a house barbeque sauce. While some barbeque sauces may be thick and heavy, the house sauce is light, and though generally mild, has hints of sugary ingredients with a pop of spicy tang. To finish off the top layer of the sandwich, Mr. H icks creates a cabbage and apple slaw with a semi-sweet dressing. The crunchy and cool slaw juxtaposes perfectly against the soft bread and the hot pork. M aking good-tasting, fresh food and being intentional to make the dishes in a healthy way is something very important to Mr. Hicks. "I 'm not organic yet, but I would love to be. I buy fresh produce, meats, everything. I'm as close to organic as I can," Mr. H icks said. "Y ou shouldn't need a degree in chemistry to know what you're eating," he said. O ther menu items include the Parma John, a breaded fried chicken parmesan sandwich topped with homemade r ed sauce, arugula and mozzarella; Skirts Up, a marinated and seared steak sandwich with lettuce red onion and tomato' and Wrapsody, a flour tortilla wrap filled with seasoned ground beef, black bean paste, orangecilantro sour cream, cheddar cheese, lettuce and onions. The L-shaped bar and few bar stools in the deli are a good place to slow down and chow down. And if you have time and want to talk, I can talk about food all day," Mr. H icks said with a laugh. Br eakfast items and sandwiches are also available all day. F or someone who is used to eating on the go, but wants to be more conscientious about the ingredients they consume, the Nonna Scramble is a filling sandwich that fits the bill. In addition to eggs, the sandwich has potatoes, garlic, parmesan cheese, and a choice of bacon, sausage, salami or ham.

This past weekend my wife, Carol, and I had the immense pleasure of visiting the old Cypress Ga r dens in Winter Haven. The park is now called Legoland and it has something to offer for all ages. U pon first entering the park, you are greeted by an array of colorful animal figures made from Lego bricks. In fact, most everything you see is made from colorful Legos throughout the park. If y ou have been there when it was Cypress Ga r dens, you will recognize many of the buildings and landmarks. In the center of the park instead of topiaries and plant gardens, you will find miniature cities all made from Legos. It is highly detailed and amazing to look at. You will need quite a bit of time to explore this part of the park. As you move deeper into the park, you will see the all-familiar waterfall with all the landscaping just as it was in the old park. The landscaping is amazing with a varied collection of tropical and native plants surrounding the water fall. It is truly an amazing sight. If y ou follow the park all the way to the end, you will hit the pot of gold. This is where the original Cypress Ga r dens botanical garden is located. It is worth the price of admission just to see these gardens. The botanical gardens abound with plant species from both native to varieties from all corners of the globe. The garden paths are clean and the gardens are all welltrimmed and manicured. While on your stroll, be sure to have your picture taken at the historic gazebo. Also, be sure to spend some time at the old Banyan tree that is in the center of the gardens. After leaving the gardens, be sure to see the ski show. Although themed different from the original, it is truly entertaining to see. T oday I want to talk about a couple of the plants that I encountered on the tour that has a very interesting background. The first is a plant called the Traveler's P alm. The Traveler's Palm (ravenala madagascariensis) is actually not a palm at all. This plant is a member of the bird-of-paradise family. In fact, looking at the plant from a distance, it is very difficult to tell them apart. This plant has a very interesting history. Back in the explorer days, this plant actually was a source of water for travelers, hence the name traveler's palm. The stems hold rainwater that can be used as an emergency drinking supply. Each stem can hold as much as a pint of water. I ts huge paddle shaped leaves that indeed have both a tropical and a majestic appearance characterizes the plant. Tr aveler's Palm is a very easy to grow plant choice and can really offer a distinct tropical look to any landscape. The plant requires a fairly sunny location and should be planted so the shape of the plant goes from east to w est. I was not able to do that with mine but the plant is still thriving beautifully. They require moderate water but once w ell-established they are very easy to maintain. The main maintenance issue with this plant would be trimming off the dry and/or broken branches. Although quite hardy, they can be damaged in high winds or hard freeze conditions. My plant has been through both and has recovered every time. Y ou can fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer during the summer growing season if desired. This will help to keep the dark green leaf color and aid in faster plant growth. These plants are available at many local nurseries. The next plant I would like to mention is a variety known as the Song of India. The Song of India is a tropical plant that has long narrow leaves that have green centers with a creamy y ellow edge. The plant can grow up to four feet high. This plant is often used as an indoor tropical but can also be planted outdoors in a tropical garden or on a deck or patio in a pot. Song of India requires bright light but will burn if placed in all day direct sun. The plant is easy to grow and only r equires small amounts of water. They do not like their feet to be soaking wet. Since the plant loves humidity, it grows quite well in our area. This plant is widely available at many local nurseries. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

The club sponsored my w eekly golf radio show for several years, and I enjoyed a round at the course several times a month for quite some time. I know the course almost as well as the back of my hand. A bout four years ago, Ray F inch purchased the course. He spent the next year or so using his knowledge and experience to complete many upgrades to the course and facilities. One of his first upgrades was to put asphalt and curbing in the parking lot and bag drop areas. The curbing may not sound like much, but it helped tremendously with traffic flow and drainage, and really set off the new landscaping around the clubhouse and cart barn. This past summer H ammock Creek closed from early June until just this past week. Finch's desire was to upgrade the greens with new Tiff Eagle grass, improve drainage on and around the greens and drop a few more tweaks here and there around the course. H ammock Creek, located within a mile of Florida's Tu r npike and also I-95, originally opened in 1995. The course was the first designed by the father-son team of Jack Nicklaus and J ack Nicklaus II and quickly became one of the finest daily fee courses in the area. It was also home to the Golden Bear Tour, hosted many mini tours, U.S. Open Q ualifying, and even hosted the Taste of Martin County. Those who have played H ammock Creek know it for its expansive fairways, large greens, variety of holes and friendly staff. The course is also tops with many lady golfers as it features few forced carries and greens complexes that allow for many different shots around the green. The course also features the Visage GPS yardage system on every cart, allowing for easier club selection and hole management. There are even tips on how to play each hole. If yo u' re hungry, you can also order some food to pick up at the turn or have waiting when you finish your round. The staff can even use the system to alert you to approaching storms or r espond to a lost club or emergency. One impressive thing that I learned is that the entire staff has returned from the summer hiatus. The same smiling, friendly faces that have been a staple at H ammock Creek are there again awaiting your return. F or me it was like seeing old friends and it immediately put me in a great mood. On the course, golfers who have played here before will find just a few changes other than the new and impressively improved greens. The most obvious is the newly paved cart paths. Fr om the first tee all the way to the 18th green, the paths have been fixed and r epaved. It's a nice smooth r ide the whole way around. The other changes come from clearing out or thinning palmettos, knocking down tall grass and previously un-kept areas to keep golfers from having a blind tee shot. The area behind the third green is one such place. U sed to be if you hit your approach long, the ball would tumble across the cart path and simply disappear in tall weeds and palmettos. That area has been cleaned out and you now have a good 10 feet for y our ball to settle. The areas directly in front of the fifth and seventh tees have also been cleaned up and knocked down, allowing golfers an unimpeded view of the fairway. The cart path on number five, no longer backtracks toward the fairway before heading ov er to the sixth tee, making for a safer environment when the group behind you is ready to hit their second shots. H ammock Creek has five sets of tees playing from just ov er 5,000yards up to 7,119yards. The course is usually set up to play hard and fast, giving your drives some extra distance. There is also plenty of room to hit driver on almost every hole. There are few nasty bunkers to avoid, but most won't r uin your day should you find them. F inally, what you've been waiting to hear about: the greens. They are, to put it mildly, wonderful. Every putt I hit rolled smoothly and predictably. They are firm and fast, and should only get better as they mature. The design of each appears to be almost exactly as it was before. No strange bumps or false fronts have been slipped in on us. It truly is like going back home. F or more information, visit www.hammockcreekgolfclub.com or call (772) 220-2599 and speak to any of the club's friendly staff.
