Momentum builds for affordable housing for seniorsSEBASTIAN Earlier this month, the Sebastian City Council approved a special residential zoning exemption that could allow for future affordable housing for seniors in the city. Du r ing the Nov. 13 meeting, the council unanimously voted to r aise the development density of a 7.4-acre property just north of the P ublix shopping center at U.S. 1 and Barber Street in Sebastian. The property was zoned as commercial general with an allowable eight units per acre, but the councils action bumped up the density level to 12 units per acre. The applicant, Wayne Sinclair, spoke to the council and the audience about his project, describing it as an affordable housing project for seniors that goes above and beyond the normal housing r equirements. Mr. Sinclair said the project is expected to cost $18.2 million and will require 39 employees to run full time. The project, Avery Way A partments, is designed to be a three-story apartment complex with community rooms for a SEBASTIAN RIVER AREAV ol. 11, No. 10 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Nov. 29, 2013 BEWARE OF FAKE MESSAGESNot every error message is real while on the internet.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY When a teacher can influence students and her ow n peers, even after she is gone, that can truly be counted as a legacy. Last week, the students and faculty of Suncoast School donated more than 100 pounds of pet food to the Humane Society of Ve ro B each and Indian River Countys pet food bank in memory of Nada M olter, a third and fourth grade language arts teacher at the private school who died this past summer. C andee Manwaring, school administrator, said Mrs. Molter taught at Suncoast School for 18years and her love of animals was well known to her students and their families. S he had been teaching here for so long that she had almost started teaching to the second generation because her first students are sending their children to our school now, Ms. Manwaring said. Of all the things that the children remember, it was that she was a superb stor yteller and her love for animals, she said. S ince the beginning of the school year, the students, families and staff have been collecting the pet food and other pet basics, such as leashes and collars, as well as collecting change to donate, Ms. M anwaring said. The school collected $125 in cash donations, which will be used at the animal shelter and contribute to an engraved memorial brick at the shelters volunteer pavilion, said Janet Winikoff, education director for the shelter. The animal shelters pet food bank assistance program was established to help pets and their families stay together during difficult economic and financial times. The program offers assistance to those families struggling to feed F riday, November 29, 2013 A2 Sebastian River Area Hometown News 772-567-63401265 36th St. Vero Beach, FL 32960Hours 9am-5pm Mon-Fri Sat 9-1, Open Until 7pm Mon &Wed.801 Wellness Way Suite 204 Sebastian, FL 32958Hours 9am-3pm Mon-Friis the one-stop location fo r all your medical services.We offer the following on-site servicesCLIA Certied Lab X-Ray Bone Density Testing Echocardiograph ACR Accredited Ultrasound Hearing CenterOur Board Certied Family Medicine and Internal Medicinephysicians are now accepting new patients.Erol Atamer, MD Arthur Splendoria, MD Hal Brown, MD Joshua Shipley, MD Dennis Saver, MD Rick Baker, MD Samuel Watkins, MD Gary Silverman, MD Guy Ulrich, MD Richard Penly, MD Sebastian Ofce:Nancy Baker.MD / Christina Namvar, DOwww.primarydocs.net 085015 Call Toll Free 866-778-2009 or (772) 778-20091285 36th Street, Suite 100, Vero BeachV isit our website: www.orthocentervb.comComprehensive Orthopaedic Care in Vero Beach085014 ARTHRITISMANAGEMENT ARTHROSCOPY TOTALHIP,KNEE& SHOULDERREPLACEMENT UNICONDYLARREPLACEMENT& HIPRESURFACING GENERALORTHOPAEDICS SPORTSINJURIES&CARPALTUNNEL SHOULDERPROBLEMS INHOUSEMRI & PHYSICALTHERAPYRichard Steinfeld,M.D.,M.B.A.,F.A.A.O.SDiplomate,American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery F ellow,American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons American Association of Hip and Knee SurgeonsMarcus J.Malone,M.D.Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Member,American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 084638 www.roquefamilydentistry.com 2 LOCATIONSTOCHOOSEFROMRIVERSIDEDENTAL9402 N.

In a PowerPoint presentation, something Mr. Keating was famous for preparing for reports, Stan Boling, who will follow Mr. Keating as community development director, highlighted some of Mr. Keatings accomplishments with a sprinkling of humor. He cited Mr. Keatings early morning work hours as good examples of leadership and an excellent work ethic and his careful, logical and transparent planning process as good for those who worked under him and for county residents. H e sets a high bar and he lives up to it, Mr. Boling said. C ommissioner Wesley D avis said for the past 30 y ears, whenever people talk about the high quality of life available in Indian River County, most of the credit should go to Mr. K eating for his planning and foresight. S ome of Mr. Keatings projects include long range transportation plans, an informative website, zoning maps, traffic impact fee r egulations and developing an urban service area. Mr. Keating will officially r etire from service on Dec. 31, but Mr. Boling will take ov er early on in December. Mr. Keating was hired by the county in March 1983 and had risen through the r anks being charged with va r ious responsibilities and titles through the years. C ommissioners appeared to enjoy ribbing Mr. Keating during a presentation thanking him for his service, joking that he better have remembered to obtain permits to retire. On his retirement Mr. K eating, an avid runner, plans to run, enjoy fitness activities and travel. C ommissioner Joe F lescher said he couldnt imagine what the county would be like without Mr. K eating at the helm of community development, but he is quite glad that Mr. B oling, Mr. Keatings righthand man, is there to step in and continue bringing high-quality leadership to the department.

and future board votes should have a clear majority. On Nov. 19, Gov. Rick Scott called Ms. Simchick, a former Sebastian City councilwoman, to say she was his choice to finish the term of former school board member Jeff Pegler, who resigned for an employment opportunity. Ms. Simchicks appointed term will last through Nov. 11, 2014. I was very honored that Gov. Scott called me personally. This is very exciting and now its about getting to work, Ms. Simchick said. Ms. Simchick is the general service administrator for the Indian River County S heriffs Office and holds a seat on the school board of the Sebastian Charter J unior High School board. S he will have to resign from that board now that she has been appointed to fill Mr. Peglers seat on the county-wide board. I had a large amount of people in the community who wrote letters of support and I hope I have the opportunity to call them all and thank them, Ms. Simchick said. Gov. Scott interviewed Ms. Simchick about one month ago as he was narro wing the field of applicants, but last weeks call was still very sudden and unexpected, though welcome, Ms. Simchick said. N early 20 people applied for the appointment to r epresent District 2. Specific boundary lines of the district can be found on the Indian River County school district website, but in general, the district encompasses southern S ebastian, Wabasso and the northern parts of the barrier island. In order to be elected to a specific seat on the school board, applicants must live in the district, and Ms. S imchick does, which means she would be eligible to run to continue serving on the school board in the 2014 election.

Advances in technology and science have made fighting the disease a very r eal option, Mr. May said. P eople who should get tested for HIV/AIDS often dont because they are worr ied about a stigma, but the problem is, they could be making their situation worse and not even know it, he said. W e say, pass the message, not the disease, Mr. M ay said. The county health department offers free counseling to patients and family members affected by HIV or AIDS, the department website said. Free education classes are also offered to businesses, churches and other organizations in the hopes that education will also reduce fears and misconceptions people have about the virus, the website said. M y goal is to see people get tested, get educated and get treatment, he said. C onfidential and anonymous HIV testing is available through the health department and a lab processing fee of $25 is normally charged, though it can be waived under special circumstances. HIV and AIDS patient care is also available.

O ther optional services offered would include laundry, transportation, medication reminders and housekeeping, Mr. Sinclair said. C ouncilwoman Andrea Co y said she was glad to see a project like this coming to S ebastian, as there are not enough affordable housing for seniors in the community. S ome members of the public said it sounded like an assisted living facility, but Mr. Sinclair said the apartment community did not meet the mandate r equirements of an assisted living complex, but it would have some of the optional services that an assisted living place would traditionally offer its residents. Dur ing the meeting, all the council voted on was to approve the special exemption for the use of the property. Mr. Sinclair will be presenting further details of the construction and use to the planning and zoning board before coming back before Sebastian City C ouncil for further permissions, said Joe Griffin, city airport director and interim city manager beginning Dec. 12.

There are a number of advantages to buying local, said Beth M itchell, executive director of the Sebastian River Area Chamber of C ommerce. Y ou know the people yo u re doing business with, so you have a higher level of trust. It also helps people in our communities. By shopping local, you are circulating the dollars in our community and keeping it in our community. I t keeps us all strong, Ms. Mitchell said. S hopping local has a domino effect, said Ms. C aseltine and Ms. Mitchell. F or example, suppose someone gets a haircut at a family-owned barber shop. That haircut helps the shop employee pay for school supplies for their child at a local office supply store, which helps that business o wner grow their business, employ more people and give back to the community by donating to a local nonprofit, Ms. Mitchell said. I t just multiplies, she said. F or a big picture perspective, shopping local boosts the overall economy and helps a certain quality of life, Ms. Caseltine said. Local businesses pay taxes in the county, helping pay for roads, and they also collect sales tax, which is again used in the community in various ways, Ms. C aseltine said. I always like to buy locally, whether I go to the shops on Ocean Drive in Ve ro Beach, or Ditch 13 in F ellsmere, you can find some really cool stuff, she said. The smaller, locally-owned stores are more likely to have unique items or items that r eflect Indian River County and the lifestyle enjoyed by so many in the area, Ms. Caseltine said. S ebastian has some really cool shops, as do many places in the county, and can give people these gifts that you cant find anywhere else, she said.GiftsF rom page A1 dent who is contacted by anyone for such an inspection, whether on the telephone or in person is asked to report the incident to the Fellsmere P olice Department at (772) 571-1360.

TREASURE COAST The F lorida Forest Service wants to remind everyone to enjoy the winter holidays with safety in mind. Holiday wildfire safety begins the first day as your family searches for the perfect Christmas tree and Holiday wildfire safety ends with the carefully planned disposal of the tree at the end of the holiday season. Christmas tree fires are more likely to cause a house fire; a wildfire can result from the flames. C alin Ionita, Senior Fo r ester with the Florida Fo r est Service wants to provide families with a few tips on protecting yourself, your home and your property. One of the first things you can do to prevent Christmas tree fires is to pick the right tree. When choosing a Christmas tree, it is important to buy a fresh tree. Cut an inch off the bottom or ask the vendor to do it for you. This new cut will allow water to be taken up. Put your tree in water as soon as you get home and be sure to top-up daily. A fresh tree will drink about a pint a day for the first couple of days. How ever, do not think the danger ends just because the holidays are over and the tree is down. G et to know the burn laws in your area before your strike that match. It is unsafe and illegal to burn wrapping paper and gift boxes. Consider recycling instead of burning your Christmas trees in order to reduce the chances of sparking a wildfire, said Melissa Yunas, W ildfire Mitigation Specialist Florida Forest Service. Christmas trees may be ground up for mulch or used to help stabilize sand dunes, build structure for fish in a lake or pond or provide shelter for birds and other wildlife. Contact your local S olid Waste Authority for r ecycling information. If y ou decide to burn your Christmas tree, here are a few outdoor burning tips: -Never leave a fire unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave -Keep a shovel and water hose handy -Dont burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 35 percent -Your fire must be contained to an 8foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel and must be at least 25feet from forests, 25feet from your house, 50feet from a paved public road and 150feet from other occupied buildings -If your fire escapes, you may be held liable for suppression costs and damage to the property of others. -Burning yard waste does not require an authorization from the Florida Forest Service, but you should check with your local city, county or Florida Forest Service officials to see if there are any r estrictions in your area F or more information about picking out the perfect tree,call (863) 655-6409 C alin.Ionita@FreshFromF lorida.com.

Thank you for remembering the Veterans of all wars and all of our Fallen Heroes.W ebsite messThe health care website mess and the confusing health plan offerings are perfect reasons for less government. U ntil we begin to elect proven business professionals who can effectively operate an organization and make prudent decisions, and dismiss lawyers and life-long politicians, we are doomed. Plenty of candy for teensIn response to the rant about not wanting the older children to Trick-or Treat at his/her house: Seriously, these children could be out doing drugs, getting drunk, having premarital sex, instead, they are asking for a lousy piece of candy. I say if you are old, young or just young at heart, come to my house there is candy for everyone!Snowbird loveGranted, the "Snowbirds" make us year round residents crazy. Granted the traffic gets unbearable when they arrive and it is almost impossible to get into a restaurant or find a decent parking space. However, please consider that they do support our economy and without them our state would suffer. We do not pay city or state income taxes, our sales tax is much lower than in other states and they pay property taxes for year round use and are only here for part of the year. I have been a full time resident of Florida for more than 20 years. Let's face it, the summers are brutal and the winters are fabulous. I say, even the birds know enough to get out when it's hot and come back when it's cold up north. Are we all jealous that they can afford the luxury we would love to have? Or are they and the birds smarter than we are?F ood stamp costThe cost of food stamps has grown 258 percent since 2000, largely because of relaxed eligibility rules issued by Obama administration. This is fiscally untenable. More importantly, our dependence on government to give money to the poor reduces our responsibility to giving. We are allowing bureaucrats to take our tax money to let us off the hook morally. Not a positive trend.Whose laws do we obey?We are told Obamacare is the law of the land and, therefore, must be implemented, funded and enforced. On the other hand, the president has done everything he can to dismantle and discourage enforcement of our immigration laws. Are his laws the only ones we must obey?Do they really care?Government agencies do not care about the children. We call them about abuse in the home and they go in and question the child in front of the child that is being abused. Dont they know better? Once the agency leaves, the child is then subjected to abuse again. Why would you question a child in front of their abusers? Its no wonder people dont trust them. If a child is stabbing themselves with a pencil or cutting themselves and hurting animals, there is something going on in the home. The workers need to listen to the child, not the parent. Thats why there is so much violence in the world. There is raping and killing, and we wonder why this kind of thing goes on. And all the agency does is give the parent an anger management course. Thats not going to help these poor children.We need helpIm trying to raise my grandchildren on disability. The r unaround that people get when they apply for government assistance is horrible. The economy is poor and so are the people who are trying to survive. The government makes trying to get by nearly impossible.Clean up after your dogI quote from a page of a page-a-day calendar if only to show that I'm not the only one who feels this way: "Dog poop is the curse of our age, the symbol of all that is wrong with our modern society, the carelessness, the selfishness, the lack of individual responsibility." I'm not too crazy about dog urine, either. Even those who pick up seem to have no qualms about the urine. It's my yard. I work in it, not being able to afford yard maintenance, and thinking a dog might have been there makes me uncomfortable. Why can't dogs use their own yard?Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee. They told me it was illegal to rent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 rooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbors house and the yard is a mess.More on computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an e-mail address as its only form of contact.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called medically needy, which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick, I am unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have cant be taken care of because they dont meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I dont know where to turn.Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, its like living next to a dump. Why wont code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. Got something to say?

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, NOV. 29, 2013 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM The future Mrs.Claus?Sarah Webb spends some time with Santa at The Riverside Childrens Theatres 1 6th annual F estival of Trees. S ee additional photos page B1.Cliff Partlow staff photographer One of the pitfalls Web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official Windows messages. If you've surfed the Web at all, then you've seen them; they look like regular W indows dialogue boxes complete with the red, r ound X that denotes a W indows error and an ominous message like "Your system is dangerously low on resources" or "Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers." U sually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when you click it? Nine out of 10 times, you are brought to a Web site selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, right-hand corner y ou know, the Minimize, R estore and Close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, r estore or close the ad! U sually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking "Close" (or any of the other buttons) will give you the same result as if you had clicked the fake "OK" button. Arghh! It's infuriating. I once encountered a W eb ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: "Internet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate y our computer and YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer." Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Wow, I thought to myself. I wonder how many people are falling for this one? And then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a Web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the user's hard drive. Nothing really wrong with that; you'd get the same results typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked "Go," but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? That's low. I t's amazing these companies don't get sued out of existence for deceptive advertising. What's even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake "Windows" ads is garbage anyways that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this week on unscrupulous advertisers. Now let's go ov er a few things to look for so you won't get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking it's a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the Web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, A OL's Browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other Web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that it's an ad, and if you click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what y ou were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when you are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse over a link in your Web browser, the URL or address where that link will take you is shown in the status bar before you click. If it is a genuine windows message, noDont fall for fake messages COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

It struck a nerve with me because I recently had a run in at the grocery store checkout line with someone who had similar feelings. I said some things out of frustration that I was not very proud of, however, I am tired of having to defend being a snowbird. Over the past 15 years I have been lucky enough to winter in Florida. I consider F lorida to be home to me, as w ell as my home up north. I r ealize it is a blessing to have two homes, and I am grateful, but I dont understand why I need to apologize for it. I cant speak for all people, but this idea that snowbirds think they are better is just not true. There are arrogant people everywhere, whether they are snowbirds, full-time residents, on vacation, or just passing through. A rude person will be a rude person no matter where they are from, where they live or how long they stay in one particular place. Fur thermore, whether people like to admit it or not, snowbirds and tourists bring revenue to Florida. I dont come here for free. I pay my property taxes, shop at local businesses, bought my car here, and I am not the only one. I come from a tourist town up north and understand what it feels like to have to deal with heavy traffic during certain seasons and events. Yes, it can be frustrating, but many of our local businesses rely on these people to get them through their slow season as w ell. Do I get angry when I am driving behind someone who doesnt know the area and may find themselves in the wrong lane? Yes. But there are some horrible drivers who live there all y ear long as well. There was a gentleman who recently told me to let him know when I was going back to Massachusetts so that I could take some people with me. Maybe he was just having a bad day, I know his comment made me speak out of frustration, but no one deserves to be made to feel that they are not welcome. I am such a horrible person because I only live here 7 months out of the y ear? Do snowbirds cause y ou so many problems that y ou have to make a rude comment to an 80 year old widow at the grocery store? S hould people in Massachusetts be equally as rude to me when I am there because I dont live there all year? One thing I love about coming to my Florida home is how kind and accommodating most of the stores and restaurants are to people my age. I am grateful for these people. It takes so little to be friendly and kind to people and it goes a long way. Truthfully, there are so many more nice people than there are mean, but the mean ones, unfortunately, are so hurtful. M aybe traffic is a little heavier when I am here, or y ou may have to wait a little longer at your favorite r estaurant, but this is my home, too, and I shouldnt have to feel bad about that. It is hurtful to hear, I hate when the snowbirds are here, or go home snowbirds. Sorry to disappoint y ou, I am home. -Clara the SnowbirdRantsF rom page A6 address will appear in the status bar!

W ith the holidays rapidly approaching, soon one of the most popular plants on earth will be available for sale. The plant I am referr ing to is the colorful P oinsettia plant. These beautiful plants are most commonly known for their r ed color but they also can come in many other colors such as white, pink and some can even be multicolored. S ince most retailers offer mass displays of these gems, you will have an almost unlimited choice of which plants you will want to bring home. As beautiful as these plants are, they are also very fragile and you must handle them gently or the delicate branches will break and fall off. During my lifetime, I have unpacked and displayed no less than 100,000 of these beauties and I still do not tire of their delicate appearance. P oinsettias have an interesting history that dates back to the 14th century. In fact, during the period from the 14th to the 16th century, the Aztec I ndians called Poinsettias C uetlaxochitle and they used the sap to control fevers and the leaves, or bracts, were used to produce a red dye. The actual botanical name for the P oinsettia was named by the German botanist W ilenow and he called it E uphorbia Pulcherria. He first discovered the plant growing through a crack in his greenhouse and he was so amazed at the color of the plant that he gave it that name which means very beautiful. F or many years and in fact still today, many people believe that poinsettias are poisonous. The truth is that they are not. It is true, however, that some people are allergic to the white sap of the plant and skin irritation can develop. If you are one of those people with sensitive skin, you should handle the plants with care. F or a retailer during the holiday season, having a fresh batch of Poinsettias is like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. These wonderful plants create an eye-catching display that will certainly draw a crowd. So with all these choices, how do I pick that perfect plant? The first thing you want to look for are plants that have been removed from their sleeves. Many r etailers will display the plant with the sleeve intact and if the plant sits on the shelf too long, this can cause the leaves to yellow and drop and eventually, the plant may die. It is much better to choose plants that have been removed from their sleeves. If you do choose a plant that is sleeved, remove the plastic as soon as you get the plant home. The next thing you want to look for are plants that have little or no pollen showing on the flower clusters. This is a good indicator of the maturity of the flower bracts. You should always choose plants that have a lush, green color to their foliage and have a good healthy appearance. Avoid plants that look droopy or have y ellowing leaves. While choosing your plants, handle the plants carefully so as not to break the adjoining plants so everybody can have a chance at getting a prime looking plant. Once you have chosen y our gem and you have your plant in its new home, some standard TLC will ensure that you get a long lifespan from your new houseguest. If you are keeping your plant indoors and it is not near a good light source, occasionally put it in a sunny location so it can get the light it needs to maintain a healthy look. If the plant starts to drop leaves excessively, it is probably not getting enough bright light and you will need to move it. Always keep your plant away from cold drafts and low temperatures. P oinsettias will not do well if the temperatures drop below 45. You should also check your plants for soil moisture daily and be sure y our plant has good drainage and does not sit in standing water. Keep the plant evenly moist but not soaking wet. If you follow these simple tips, you should be able to enjoy your plants through the entire holiday season. After the holidays are over, y ou can plant them outdoors in a protected location, such as under a tree, and you can enjoy them year after year! Thats all for this weeks column and I hope you enjoyed it. I will see you next week with more great garden tips and solutions. Se e you then!

I wish I could tell you all of the stories, but if I did this might be my last article. If you don't know where Lake Cypress is, it is an easy drive, about 70 miles away. It s a great lake to fish. Theres some big bass biting and a lot of smaller ones. Although, they didn't know they were supposed to bite when we we re there. Jerry, my B uckeye friend, had a decent day catching more than I and that made his day. His biggest was more than three pounds. The lake water was on the dirty side with all the wind that weve been having. Plus, we were fishing on a full moon, and r eally not paying too much attention as to what we we re doing because we we re having lots of fun! The next time we go out on the water, we will be more alert. To get to Lake C ypress, take Rt. 60 to Y eehaw Juction, turn right at the traffic light (Rt.441) to Rt.523 (Canoe Creek R oad) in Kenansville, turn left, go approximately 40 miles until you see a large sign on the left side of the r oad, then turn left to Lake C ypress, just keep going on that road and you will r un into it. If youre going bass fishing, my suggestion would be to take some S enkos, 10-inch Red Shad Wo rm s, and Flukes. The east shore line has been producing some fish. They do have a good size airboat facility there so keep a watchful eye, a good bunch of guys r unning the boats. Ha ve fun, be safe and go catch a big'un J oe Kubik is a tournament fisherman and former Charter Captain.

Momentum builds for affordable housing for seniorsSEBASTIAN Earlier this month, the Sebastian City Council approved a special residential zoning exemption that could allow for future affordable housing for seniors in the city. Du r ing the Nov. 13 meeting, the council unanimously voted to r aise the development density of a 7.4-acre property just north of the P ublix shopping center at U.S. 1 and Barber Street in Sebastian. The property was zoned as commercial general with an allowable eight units per acre, but the council's action bumped up the density level to 12 units per acre. The applicant, Wayne Sinclair, spoke to the council and the audience about his project, describing it as an affordable housing project for seniors that goes above and beyond the normal housing r equirements. Mr. Sinclair said the project is expected to cost $18.2 million and will require 39 employees to run full time. The project, Avery Way A partments, is designed to be a three-story apartment complex with community rooms for a SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 11, No. 10 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Nov. 29, 2013 BEWARE OF F AKE MESSAGESNot every error message is real while on the internet.

The male caller initially spoke to the complainant in fluent Spanish but switched to English during their conversation. The caller told the complainant that the city uiring all city residents to have their air conditioning units and "heater units" inspected "due to fire hazards from the dryer unit." The complainant said the male caller tried to "p r essure her" to make an appointment for the inspections and that the fee for the inspections would be $49. The complainant became suspicious because she believed the City of Fellsmere would have notified her of such a change in her monthly water bill.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY When a teacher can influence students and her ow n peers, even after she is gone, that can truly be counted as a legacy. Last week, the students and faculty of Suncoast School donated more than 100 pounds of pet food to the Humane Society of Ve ro B each and Indian River County's pet food bank in memory of Nada M olter, a third and fourth grade language arts teacher at the private school who died this past summer. C andee Manwaring, school administrator, said Mrs. Molter taught at Suncoast School for 18years and her love of animals was well known to her students and their families. "S he had been teaching here for so long that she had almost started teaching to the second generation because her first students are sending their children to our school now," Ms. Manwaring said. Of all the things that the children remember, it was that she was a superb stor yteller and her love for animals," she said. S ince the beginning of the school year, the students, families and staff have been collecting the pet food and other pet basics, such as leashes and collars, as well as collecting change to donate, Ms. M anwaring said. The school collected $125 in cash donations, which will be used at the animal shelter and contribute to an engraved memorial brick at the shelter's volunteer pavilion, said Janet Winikoff, education director for the shelter. The animal shelter's pet food bank assistance program was established to help pets and their families stay together during difficult economic and financial times. The program offers assistance to those families struggling to feed F riday, November 29, 2013 A2 Sebastian River AreaHometown News 772-567-63401265 36th St. € Vero Beach, FL 32960Hours 9am-5pm Mon-Fri € Sat 9-1, Open Until 7pm Mon &Wed.801 Wellness Way € Suite 204 € Sebastian, FL 32958Hours 9am-3pm Mon-Friis the one-stop location fo r all your medical services.We offer the following on-site servicesCLIA Certied Lab X-Ray Bone Density Testing Echocardiograph ACR Accredited Ultrasound Hearing CenterOur Board Certi“ed Family Medicine and Internal Medicinephysicians are now accepting new patients.Erol Atamer, MD Arthur Splendoria, MD Hal Brown, MD Joshua Shipley, MD Dennis Saver, MD Rick Baker, MD Samuel Watkins, MD Gary Silverman, MD Guy Ulrich, MD Richard Penly, MD Sebastian Ofce:Nancy Baker.MD / Christina Namvar, DOwww.primarydocs.net 085015 Call Toll Free 866-778-2009 or (772) 778-20091285 36th Street, Suite 100, Vero BeachV isit our website: www.orthocentervb.comComprehensive Orthopaedic Care in Vero Beach085014 € ARTHRITISMANAGEMENT€ ARTHROSCOPY€ TOTALHIP,KNEE& SHOULDERREPLACEMENT€ UNICONDYLARREPLACEMENT& HIPRESURFACING€ GENERALORTHOPAEDICS€ SPORTSINJURIES&CARPALTUNNEL€ SHOULDERPROBLEMS€ INHOUSEMRI & PHYSICALTHERAPYRichard Steinfeld,M.D.,M.B.A.,F.A.A.O.SDiplomate,American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery F ellow,American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons American Association of Hip and Knee SurgeonsMarcus J.Malone,M.D.Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Member,American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 084638 www.roquefamilydentistry.com 2 LOCATIONSTOCHOOSEFROMRIVERSIDEDENTAL9402 N.

He cited Mr. Keating's early morning work hours as good examples of leadership and an excellent work ethic and his careful, logical and transparent planning process as good for those who worked under him and for county resi dents. "H e sets a high bar and he lives up to it," Mr. Boling said. C ommissioner Wesley D avis said for the past 30 y ears, whenever people talk about the high quality of life available in Indian River County, most of the credit should go to Mr. K eating for his planning and foresight. S ome of Mr. Keating's projects include long range transportation plans, an informative website, zoning maps, traffic impact fee r egulations and developing an urban service area. Mr. Keating will officially r etire from service on Dec. 31, but Mr. Boling will take ov er early on in December. Mr. Keating was hired by the county in March 1983 and had risen through the r anks being charged with va r ious responsibilities and titles through the years. C ommissioners appeared to enjoy ribbing Mr. Keating during a presentation thanking him for his service, joking that he better have remembered to obtain permits to retire. On his retirement Mr. K eating, an avid runner, plans to run, enjoy fitness activities and travel. C ommissioner Joe F lescher said he couldn't imagine what the county would be like without Mr. K eating at the helm of community development, but he is quite glad that Mr. B oling, Mr. Keating's righthand man, is there to step in and continue bringing high-quality leadership to the department.

and future board votes should have a clear majority. On Nov. 19, Gov. Rick Scott called Ms. Simchick, a former Sebastian City councilwoman, to say she was his choice to finish the term of former school board member Jeff Pegler, who resigned for an employment opportunity. Ms. Simchick's appointed term will last through Nov. 11, 2014. "I was very honored that Gov. Scott called me personally. This is very exciting and now it's about getting to work," Ms. Simchick said. Ms. Simchick is the general service administrator for the Indian River County S heriff's Office and holds a seat on the school board of the Sebastian Charter J unior High School board. S he will have to resign from that board now that she has been appointed to fill Mr. Pegler's seat on the county-wide board. "I had a large amount of people in the community who wrote letters of support and I hope I have the opportunity to call them all and thank them," Ms. Simchick said. Gov. Scott interviewed Ms. Simchick about one month ago as he was narro wing the field of applicants, but last week's call was still very sudden and unexpected, though welcome, Ms. Simchick said. N early 20 people applied for the appointment to r epresent District 2. Specific boundary lines of the district can be found on the Indian River County school district website, but in general, the district encompasses southern S ebastian, Wabasso and the northern parts of the barrier island. In order to be elected to a specific seat on the school board, applicants must live in the district, and Ms. S imchick does, which means she would be eligible to run to continue serving on the school board in the 2014 election.

Advances in technology and science have made fighting the disease a very r eal option, Mr. May said. P eople who should get tested for HIV/AIDS often don't because they are worr ied about a stigma, but the problem is, they could be making their situation worse and not even know it, he said. "W e say, pass the message, not the disease,'" Mr. M ay said. The county health department offers free counseling to patients and family members affected by HIV or AIDS, the department website said. Fr ee education classes are also offered to businesses, churches and other organizations in the hopes that education will also reduce fears and misconceptions people have about the virus, the website said. "M y goal is to see people get tested, get educated and get treatment," he said. C onfidential and anonymous HIV testing is available through the health department and a lab processing fee of $25 is normally charged, though it can be waived under special circumstances.

S ome members of the public said it sounded like an assisted living facility, but Mr. Sinclair said the apartment community did not meet the mandate r equirements of an assisted living complex, but it would have some of the optional services that an assisted living place would traditionally offer its residents.

There are a number of advantages to buying local," said Beth M itchell, executive director of the Sebastian River Area Chamber of C ommerce. "Y ou know the people yo u' re doing business with, so you have a higher level of trust. It also helps people in our communities. By shopping local, you are circulating the dollars in our community and keeping it in our community. "I t keeps us all strong," Ms. Mitchell said. S hopping local has a domino effect, said Ms. C aseltine and Ms. Mitchell. F or example, suppose someone gets a haircut at a family-owned barber shop. That haircut helps the shop employee pay for school supplies for their child at a local office supply store, which helps that business o wner grow their business, employ more people and give back to the community by donating to a local nonprofit, Ms. Mitchell said. "I t just multiplies," she said. F or a big picture perspective, shopping local boosts the overall economy and helps a certain quality of life, Ms. Caseltine said. Local businesses pay taxes in the county, helping pay for roads, and they also collect sales tax, which is again used in the community in various ways, Ms. C aseltine said. "I always like to buy locally, whether I go to the shops on Ocean Drive in Ve ro B each, or Ditch 13 in F ellsmere, you can find some really cool stuff," she said. The smaller, locally-owned stores are more likely to have unique items or items that r eflect Indian River County and the lifestyle enjoyed by so many in the area, Ms. Caseltine said.

TREASURE COAST The F lorida Forest Service wants to remind everyone to enjoy the winter holidays with safety in mind. Holiday wildfire safety begins the first day as your family searches for the perfect Christmas tree and Holiday wildfire safety ends with the carefully planned disposal of the tree at the end of the holiday season. Christmas tree fires are more likely to cause a house fire; a wildfire can result from the flames. C alin Ionita, Senior Fo r ester with the Florida Fo r est Service wants to provide families with a few tips on protecting yourself, your home and your property. One of the first things you can do to prevent Christmas tree fires is to pick the right tree. When choosing a Christmas tree, it is important to buy a fresh tree. Cut an inch off the bottom or ask the vendor to do it for you. This new cut will allow water to be taken up. Put your tree in water as soon as you get home and be sure to top-up daily. A fresh tree will drink about a pint a day for the first couple of days. How ever, do not think the danger ends just because the holidays are over and the tree is down. "G et to know the burn laws in your area before your strike that match. It is unsafe and illegal to burn wrapping paper and gift boxes. Consider recycling instead of burning your Christmas trees in order to reduce the chances of sparking a wildfire," said Melissa Yunas, W ildfire Mitigation Specialist Florida Forest Service. Christmas trees may be ground up for mulch or used to help stabilize sand dunes, build structure for fish in a lake or pond or provide shelter for birds and other wildlife. Contact your local S olid Waste Authority for r ecycling information. If y ou decide to burn your Christmas tree, here are a few outdoor burning tips: -Never leave a fire unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave -Keep a shovel and water hose handy -Don't burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 35 percent -Your fire must be contained to an 8foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel and must be at least 25feet from forests, 25feet from your house, 50feet from a paved public road and 150feet from other occupied buildings -If your fire escapes, you may be held liable for suppression costs and damage to the property of others. -Burning yard waste does not require an authorization from the Florida Forest Service, but you should check with your local city, county or Florida Forest Service officials to see if there are any r estrictions in your area F or more information about picking out the perfect tree,call (863) 655-6409 C alin.Ionita@FreshFromF lorida.com.

U ntil we begin to elect proven business professionals who can effectively operate an organization and make prudent decisions, and dismiss lawyers and life-long politicians, we are doomed. Plenty of candy for teensIn response to the rant about not wanting the older children to Trick-or Treat at his/her house: Seriously, these children could be out doing drugs, getting drunk, having premarital sex, instead, they are asking for a lousy piece of candy. I say if you are old, young or just young at heart, come to my house there is candy for everyone!Snowbird loveGranted, the "Snowbirds" make us year round residents crazy. Granted the traffic gets unbearable when they arrive and it is almost impossible to get into a restaurant or find a decent parking space. However, please consider that they do support our economy and without them our state would suffer. We do not pay city or state income taxes, our sales tax is much lower than in other states and they pay property taxes for year round use and are only here for part of the year. I have been a full time resident of Florida for more than 20 years. Let's face it, the summers are brutal and the winters are fabulous. I say, even the birds know enough to get out when it's hot and come back when it's cold up north. Are we all jealous that they can afford the luxury we would love to have? Or are they and the birds smarter than we are?F ood stamp costThe cost of food stamps has grown 258 percent since 2000, largely because of relaxed eligibility rules issued by Obama administration. This is fiscally untenable. More importantly, our dependence on government to give money to the poor reduces our responsibility to giving. We are allowing bureaucrats to take our tax money to let us off the hook morally. Not a positive trend.Whose laws do we obey?We are told Obamacare is the law of the land and, therefore, must be implemented, funded and enforced. On the other hand, the president has done everything he can to dismantle and discourage enforcement of our immigration laws. Are his laws the only ones we must obey?Do they really care?Government agencies do not care about the children. We call them about abuse in the home and they go in and question the child in front of the child that is being abused. Don't they know better? Once the agency leaves, the child is then subjected to abuse again. Why would you question a child in front of their abusers? It's no wonder people don't trust them. If a child is stabbing themselves with a pencil or cutting themselves and hurting animals, there is something going on in the home. The workers need to listen to the child, not the parent. That's why there is so much violence in the world. There is raping and killing, and we wonder why this kind of thing goes on. And all the agency does is give the parent an anger management course. That's not going to help these poor children.We need helpI'm trying to raise my grandchildren on disability. The r unaround that people get when they apply for government assistance is horrible. The economy is poor and so are the people who are trying to survive. The government makes trying to get by nearly impossible.Clean up after your dogI quote from a page of a page-a-day calendar if only to show that I'm not the only one who feels this way: "Dog poop is the curse of our age, the symbol of all that is wrong with our modern society, the carelessness, the selfishness, the lack of individual responsibility." I'm not too crazy about dog urine, either. Even those who pick up seem to have no qualms about the urine. It's my yard. I work in it, not being able to afford yard maintenance, and thinking a dog might have been there makes me uncomfortable. Why can't dogs use their own yard?Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee. They told me it was illegal to rent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 rooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbor's house and the yard is a mess.More on computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an e-mail address as its only form of contact.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called "medically needy," which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick, I am unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have can't be taken care of because they don't meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I don't know where to turn.Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, it's like living next to a dump. Why won't code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. Got something to say?

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, NOV. 29, 2013 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM The future Mrs.Claus?Sarah Webb spends some time with Santa at The Riverside Children's Theatre's 1 6th annual F estival of Trees. S ee additional photos page B1.Cliff Partlow staff photographer One of the pitfalls Web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official Windows messages. If y ou've surfed the Web at all, then you've seen them; they look like regular W indows dialogue boxes complete with the red, r ound X that denotes a W indows error and an ominous message like "Your system is dangerously low on resources" or "Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers." U sually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when you click it? Nine out of 10 times, you are brought to a Web site selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, right-hand corner y ou know, the Minimize, R estore and Close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, r estore or close the ad! U sually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking "Close" (or any of the other buttons) will give you the same result as if you had clicked the fake "OK" button. Arghh! It's infuriating. I once encountered a W eb ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: "Internet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate y our computer and YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer." Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Wow, I thought to myself. I wonder how many people are falling for this one? And then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a Web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the user's hard drive. Nothing really wrong with that; you'd get the same results typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked "Go," but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? That's low. I t's amazing these companies don't get sued out of existence for deceptive advertising. What's even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake "Windows" ads is garbage anyways that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this week on unscrupulous advertisers. Now let's go ov er a few things to look for so you won't get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking it's a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the Web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, A OL's Browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other Web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that it's an ad, and if you click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what y ou were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when you are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse over a link in your Web browser, the URL or address where that link will take you is shown in the status bar before you click. If it is a genuine windows message, noDon't fall for fake messages COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

It struck a nerve with me because I recently had a run in at the grocery store checkout line with someone who had similar feelings. I said some things out of frustration that I was not very proud of, however, I am tired of having to defend being a snowbird. Over the past 15 years I have been lucky enough to winter in Florida. I consider F lorida to be home to me, as w ell as my home up north. I r ealize it is a blessing to have two homes, and I am grateful, but I don't understand why I need to apologize for it. I can't speak for all people, but this idea that snowbirds think they are better is just not true. There are arrogant people everywhere, whether they are snowbirds, full-time residents, on vacation, or just passing through. A rude person will be a rude person no matter where they are from, where they live or how long they stay in one particular place. Fu r thermore, whether people like to admit it or not, snowbirds and tourists bring revenue to Florida. I don't come here for free. I pay my property taxes, shop at local businesses, bought my car here, and I am not the only one. I come from a tourist town up north and understand what it feels like to have to deal with heavy traffic during certain seasons and events. Yes, it can be frustrating, but many of our local businesses rely on these people to get them through their slow season as w ell. Do I get angry when I am driving behind someone who doesn't know the area and may find themselves in the wrong lane? Yes. But there are some horrible drivers who live there all y ear long as well. There was a gentleman who recently told me to let him know when I was going back to Massachusetts so that I could take some people with me. Maybe he was just having a bad day, I know his comment made me speak out of frustration, but no one deserves to be made to feel that they are not welcome. I am such a horrible person because I only live here 7 months out of the y ear? Do snowbirds cause y ou so many problems that y ou have to make a rude comment to an 80 year old widow at the grocery store? S hould people in Massachusetts be equally as rude to me when I am there because I don't live there all year? One thing I love about coming to my Florida home is how kind and accommodating most of the stores and restaurants are to people my age. I am grateful for these people. It takes so little to be friendly and kind to people and it goes a long way. Truthfully, there are so many more nice people than there are mean, but the mean ones, unfortunately, are so hurtful. M aybe traffic is a little heavier when I am here, or y ou may have to wait a little longer at your favorite r estaurant, but this is my home, too, and I shouldn't have to feel bad about that. It is hurtful to hear, "I hate when the snowbirds are here," or "go home snowbirds." Sorry to disappoint y ou, I am home. -Clara the SnowbirdRantsF rom page A6 address will appear in the status bar!

W ith the holidays rapidly approaching, soon one of the most popular plants on earth will be available for sale. The plant I am referr ing to is the colorful P oinsettia plant. These beautiful plants are most commonly known for their r ed color but they also can come in many other colors such as white, pink and some can even be multicolored. S ince most retailers offer mass displays of these gems, you will have an almost unlimited choice of which plants you will want to bring home. As beautiful as these plants are, they are also very fragile and you must handle them gently or the delicate branches will break and fall off. During my lifetime, I have unpacked and displayed no less than 100,000 of these beauties and I still do not tire of their delicate appearance. P oinsettias have an interesting history that dates back to the 14th century. In fact, during the period from the 14th to the 16th century, the Aztec I ndians called Poinsettias "C uetlaxochitle" and they used the sap to control fevers and the leaves, or bracts, were used to produce a red dye. The actual botanical name for the P oinsettia was named by the German botanist W ilenow and he called it E uphorbia Pulcherria. He first discovered the plant growing through a crack in his greenhouse and he was so amazed at the color of the plant that he gave it that name which means "very beautiful." F or many years and in fact still today, many people believe that poinsettias are poisonous. The truth is that they are not. It is true, however, that some people are allergic to the white sap of the plant and skin irritation can develop. If you are one of those people with sensitive skin, you should handle the plants with care. F or a retailer during the holiday season, having a fresh batch of Poinsettias is like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. These wonderful plants create an eye-catching display that will certainly draw a crowd. So with all these choices, how do I pick that perfect plant? The first thing you want to look for are plants that have been removed from their sleeves. Many r etailers will display the plant with the sleeve intact and if the plant sits on the shelf too long, this can cause the leaves to yellow and drop and eventually, the plant may die. It is much better to choose plants that have been removed from their sleeves. If you do choose a plant that is sleeved, remove the plastic as soon as you get the plant home. The next thing you want to look for are plants that have little or no pollen showing on the flower clusters. This is a good indicator of the maturity of the flower bracts. You should always choose plants that have a lush, green color to their foliage and have a good healthy appearance. Avoid plants that look droopy or have y ellowing leaves. While choosing your plants, handle the plants carefully so as not to break the adjoining plants so everybody can have a chance at getting a prime looking plant. Once you have chosen y our gem and you have your plant in its new home, some standard TLC will ensure that you get a long lifespan from your new houseguest. If y ou are keeping your plant indoors and it is not near a good light source, occasionally put it in a sunny location so it can get the light it needs to maintain a healthy look. If the plant starts to drop leaves excessively, it is probably not getting enough bright light and you will need to move it. Always keep your plant away from cold drafts and low temperatures. P oinsettias will not do well if the temperatures drop below 45. You should also check your plants for soil moisture daily and be sure y our plant has good drainage and does not sit in standing water. Keep the plant evenly moist but not soaking wet. If y ou follow these simple tips, you should be able to enjoy your plants through the entire holiday season. After the holidays are over, y ou can plant them outdoors in a protected location, such as under a tree, and you can enjoy them year after year! That's all for this week's column and I hope you enjoyed it. I will see you next week with more great garden tips and solutions. Se e you then!

I wish I could tell you all of the stories, but if I did this might be my last article. If y ou don't know where Lake Cypress is, it is an easy drive, about 70 miles away. It 's a great lake to fish. There's some big bass biting and a lot of smaller ones. Although, they didn't know they were supposed to bite when we we re there. Jerry, my B uckeye friend, had a decent day catching more than I and that made his day. His biggest was more than three pounds. The lake water was on the dirty side with all the wind that we've been having. Plus, we were fishing on a full moon, and r eally not paying too much attention as to what we we re doing because we we re having lots of fun! The next time we go out on the water, we will be more alert. To get to Lake C ypress, take Rt. 60 to Y eehaw Juction, turn right at the traffic light (Rt.441) to Rt.523 (Canoe Creek R oad) in Kenansville, turn left, go approximately 40 miles until you see a large sign on the left side of the r oad, then turn left to Lake C ypress, just keep going on that road and you will r un into it. If you're going bass fishing, my suggestion would be to take some S enkos, 10-inch Red Shad Wo rm s, and Flukes. The east shore line has been producing some fish. They do have a good size airboat facility there so keep a watchful eye, a good bunch of guys r unning the boats. Ha ve fun, be safe and go catch a big'un J oe Kubik is a tournament fisherman and former Charter Captain.

Treasure if you will A hidden gem perhaps... I think I may have just found one. He r itage Ridge Golf Club in Hobe Sound recently invited me out to spend a morning chasing a little white golf ball across splendid green fairways and green. I love playing golf in new places, and since it had been several years since I last traveled these links, I thought it a good idea to accept. To my surprise I found out that Heritage Ridge had r ecently undergone renovations to its greens. The club's owners and management tweaked the course a bit, adding some length and getting the greens up to today's standards. At one time, the club was an equity-owned facility. W ith over 700 members, it was difficult at best for outsiders to find a tee time. As a result this sweet golf course went relatively unnoticed for many years. A bout a decade ago, the club was purchased from the original owner, who had bought it back from the membership. It was decided that the club needed more outside play to afford r enovations and upgrades. The idea worked at what y ou have now at Heritage Ridge is a course that has been polished with beautiful foliage, plush fairways and perhaps the best greens in the area. Now, he wants to share his gem with everyone. When you look at the scorecard you may ruffle y our nose and think that a par-70 layout with five sets of tees, measuring 6,014 yards from the tips could never test your game. You had better think again. The course is no easy walk-inthe-park round of golf. The course starts you off gently with a straightforward up-hill par 4. The second hole grabs your attention quite quickly. The 180-yard tee shot is downhill to a narrow, yet wide green tucked behind water and a timber wall. You do not want to be short, but long isn't a picnic either as there are numerous mounds to give you a scary pitch back toward the water. The front nine features a drivable, for some big hitters, par-4 and a trio of tricky par-5s. Heritage Ridge r equires you to use your brain, not just your muscles. The signature hole here is the 535-yard par-5 eighth, with water coming in to play on every shot, there is little r oom for error. Even if you manage to avoid the wet stuff, there is sand guarding the green and out-ofbounds just over the green. My favorite hole on the course is number 10. After stopping to refuel with a cold drink and a snack, you climb atop an elevated tee and smoke your drive down the fairway. The approach shot must clear the water, avoid the bunkers and settle nicely on a very tricky green. The back nine plays to a par of 34 with only one par 5, the 13th. It's a reachable par 5 playing to a length of only 510yards from the tips. But don't let the length fool you, no one plunders birdies here without risk. What you lose in length on the par-4s, you make up for on the par-3s. Four of the par-3 on the course are ov er 200yards long from the back tee. I found myself hitting nearly every club in the bag, the mark of a truly good golf course. When you play Heritage Ridge, make a point of bringing your best putting game along for the round. Y ou will need it. The greens are quick and roll ever-sosmoothly. In addition to being fast, the greens are quite undulating. If you leave yourself a downhill or sidehill putt, you had best r ead it well and put a good stroke on the ball or you may find yourself threeputting as I did on a couple occasions. A feature that one usually only finds at expensive, exclusive resorts and fancy country clubs is beautiful landscaping. Here it can be found in abundance. The club prides itself on keeping everything pleasing to the eye. With palm trees swaying in the breeze and flowering foliage it's easy to get distracted from y our game and actually r elax on the course. You just can't bring your lawn chair or sand shovel to look for more treasure. F or more information or to schedule a tee time,call the pro shop at (772) 5462800 or visit www.heritageridgegolf.com.
