085593 Sponsored by Rescue Animal Adoption Event590 Beachland Boulevard Ve ro Beach December 16th 10am 3pmCameras to be installed on county school busesINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Indian River County school districto wned buses will soon have a new safety feature installed video cameras. Du r ing the Dec. 2 meeting, district school board members voted unanimously to approve more than $110,000 on 62 camera systems for r egularly used school buses owned by the district. V ideo cameras on school buses are not required, but are seen as an excellent safety feature for students and drivers, said Bill Fritz, assistant superintendent of human r esources and risk management. S ome of the newest buses in the districts fleet already have working cameras, while some older buses have video systems that date back to the VHS era and arent used consistently, while other buses have no recording equipment at all, Mr. Fr itz said. S hould a question arise about behavior on a bus, whether by a student or a driver, or if an emergency should occur, district officials would have the ability, with the new four-camera system, to verify what happened, he said. The district will purchase the SEBASTIAN RIVER AREAV ol. 11, No. 12 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 THE NEED FOR SPEEDT esting your internet speed might help P ageA6 INSIDE 0845631120 S.

LUCIE COUNTY Local dentist Michael Huber and his daughters, T ess, 20, and Abigail, 17, lost their lives in a plane crash on Dec. 8. A ccording to Melissa B ujeda, public information officer with the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. the 1978 Cessna model 310R aircraft was headed to the Jacksonville Executive Airport when it missed an approach and crashed at the edge of a large retention pond in a subdivision in Jacksonville. They reported to the tower that they couldnt see the runway, Ms. Bujeda said in a video on the S heriffs Office website. They were told to fly around. At that time the tower got an alert that it was low altitude and then we started getting calls around 6:20 p.m. that a plane had crashed. Mr. Huber, a popular Fo rt Pierce dentist and his two daughters, Tess, a sophomore at University of North Florida, and Abigail, a senior at Lincoln Park Academy, lived in Po rt S t. Lucie.

There are still two days left to drop off toys at Salv ation Army locations or in marked bins at local Walmart locations, said John Co r api, director of development for the Salvation Army of Indian River C ounty. To y donations will be accepted through Dec. 15 and the collected items will be distributed among local children by the Salvation Army. Donations of coats can also be made at the collection bins, a press re lease said. Last year, the Fill the Tr uck drive happened during the course of one weekend, but the program was extended to three weeks, the release said. Last year, nearly 150,000 toys and coats were donated nationwide through the F ill the Truck program. Ringing bells at locations around the county also indicate the Red Kettle C ampaign is in full swing. O ur goal for the Red K ettle Campaign is $120,000, Mr. Corapi said. D ue to Thanksgiving coming late this year, we are five days short being able to ring the bell. That makes our goal that much tougher to reach, so we need heavy community support for donations and as many volunteer bell r ingers as possible, he said. There are 15 locations for bell ringers, and shifts are usually two hours long, beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding at 8 p.m. in most areas. The Red Kettle Campaign is historically the nonprofits largest annual fundraiser and sustains the organizations various programs throughout the rest of the year. Archaeology dig to begin in JanuaryBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com See CAMPAIGNS, A3INDIAN RIVER COUNTY An agreement between Mercyhurst University and the Old Vero Ice Age Site committee last w eek cements the start date of an archaeological dig in Vero Beach next year. B eginning in January, the Mercyhurst Archaeology Institute of Mercyhurst U niversity in Erie, Penn., will excavate an area in the main drainage canal in Ve ro B each known as the O ld Vero Man site in hopes of discovering artifacts from early inhabitants of Indian River C ounty that would point to their way of life. The dig is expected to last through May and any items found will be analyzed by scientists and archaeologists from the institute in a lab, and thereafter would be r eturned to Vero Beach, said Randy Old, spokesman for the Old Ve ro I ce Age Sites committee. The site is about 10feet away from where fossils and evidence of saber tooth cats, mastodons and other fossils were discovered in 1915, as well as human remains that have come to be known as Vero M an, Mr. Old said.By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com File photoGary Pierce, Old Vero Ice Age Sites Committee contractor and board member, helps map out an area in June that will be excavated on the Old Vero Man site in January.

This is the third year that the shipping and packing store donated their profits as part of their anniversary celebration. The community has warmly embraced me and my business since we moved to Vero Beach, and this is a way that I can say 'thank you' and give back, said Marc Richard, owner. A check for $550 was presented to VBCBA Treasurer D ixie Powell recently, and those funds will be distributed to local Christian charities during the nonprofit's annual Celebration of Giving luncheon on Dec. 19. When the corporate office for Postal Connections found out about the endeavor, they committed to donate an additional $100, according to Mr. Richard. P ostal Connections is located in the Publix plaza at 1275 U.S. 1, Vero Beach.

After hearing about the Vero Beach location's donation, the Corporate offices of Postal Connections also donated $100. mobile surveillance systems from Alabama-based AngelTr ax. Included in the purchase price are data storage backups, which is needful if the memory cards within the cameras become unusable, Mr. Fritz said. Only the buses used regularly will be retro-fitted with the camera systems, although the spares are used frequently. Staff said the buses that are kept as spares will soon be phased out due to age and it would not be cost-effective to outfit them with on board cameras.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Hundreds of families with kindergarteners will be r eading a new version of the classic Three Little Pigs tale before bedtime, thanks to a donation from a local business through The Education Foundation of Indian River County. M idFlorida Credit Union partnered with the nonprofit education organization to donate 1,000 books to Indian River County schoolchildren in kindergarten last week, and each classr oom held a special story time to introduce the gift, said Education Foundation r epresentatives. L yndee Dutrow, bank manager of the Sebastian M idFlorida Credit Union branch, read The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat B ad Wolf by Mark Teague to six kindergarten classes at Fellsmere Elementary on De c. 4, during the banks G ift of Reading week. I really enjoy reading to the children, Ms. Dutrow said. Dur ing the first reading of the day, more than two dozen students sat quietly on a rug as the pages began to turn and while Ms. D utrow read each line of text. Then, a curious thing happened. While they were looking at the pictures, the children kept noticing things that I had never seen, and Ive r ead the book more than seven times, Ms. Dutrow said with a laugh. This year is the eighth y ear of the Gift of Reading program and the credit union will distribute up to 14,000 books in seven counties, a press release said. At F ellsmere Elementary alone, the credit union donated 110 books. N ine other elementary schools in the district also r eceived visits from MidF lorida Credit Union representatives and a stack of books for each kindergartener. P atricia Shaw, Fellsmere Elementary School reading coach, said having an organization come to read and donate books to every single child is quite rare. I t is very special, Ms. S haw said. The school is trying to build partnerships with businesses and other organizations and having volunteer readers is one of the ways an organization can become involved. W e ve had an officer from the police department come and read several times, Ms. Shaw said. R eading is crucial to a childs academic success and therefore something the school works hard to develop in students, she said. R eading is a skill that must continually be developed in young students and having a new book to take home during the Christmas break is a good incentive for a family to have some quality reading time outside of a school assignment. This was the perfect time for it, Ms. Shaw said.

L eft: Manuel Perez finds extra characters in the pages of Three Little Pigs during the Wednesdays Gift of Reading.Cliff Partlow staff photographer By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com The excavation site is actually below the surface, about five feet, he said. The sediment closer to the surface is more likely to have been disturbed, so to find items preserved for y ears, the crew will need to dig deep. A bout five feet down or so, thats where you can find some things that are valuable, valuable in knowledge of what is in there. You can learn about the weather, animals and people, Mr. O ld said. I t s a knowledge hunt, not a treasure hunt, he said. J ames Adovasio, the archaeology institutes director, along with institute r esearch archaeologist C. Andrew Hemmings, will direct the project in Vero B each. W e searched for the very best archaeologist that had experience with excavations similar to ours in Vero Beach and we have the very best in Dr Adovasio, Mr. Old said. I t is a compliment to the city and the site; its a big deal to us. This site is at least the most important site east of the Mississippi, if not the U.S., for this time frame, Mr. Old said. The Old Vero Man site is steeped in controversy, largely centered on whether the human remains in Vero we re of a more recent age than the extinct animal bones due to mixing of geological layers. The Vero site r emains in the literature on early American inhabitants, but its status is unresolved, a press release said. S ome scientists measure the remains discovered in 1915 as being 13,000 years old. Fr om the beginning, Vero was one of the more infamous archaeological sites in Nor th America because it was seen as such a threat to the then perceived wisdom that no humans had lived here during the last Ice Age, said Director Adovasio in a press release. The Vero Beach site, as w ell as others around the country, was dismissed because the field methods of excavation werent perceived as rigorous by some experts, he said. B ut, because of the phenomenal preservation of Ice Age plant and animal mater ials at that site, this new excavation will serve to illuminate a time frame in the American Southeast that no other site can, with or without human associations, Dir ector Adovasio continued. Whatever information is in there, we are going to get it, he said. A number of Mercyhurst archaeology students will participate in the dig, as will other Mercyhurst staff and a graduate student from the U niversity of West Florida. The Old Vero Ice Age Sites committee has been working to raise funds for the project in the community for several years and will contribute more than $250,000 to the project, while the archaeology institute and parent university will contribute more than $100,000 in funds, as well as provide the excavation labor and laboratory research, Mr. O ld said.

O ne Simple Wish is a wonderful program that allows donors to grant small wishes that have a big impact on the lives of our foster children, said Esther Jacobo, DCF Interim Secretary. By having the ability to see who their donation is helping, donors know they are making a tangible difference. One Simple Wish matches individuals who want to give with current and former foster children in need of simple wishes. W ishes start at $10 and have a maximum gift amount of $500. Wishes can be granted all yearr ound. "One Simple Wish is proud to support Florida's foster children by empowering people all across the country to brighten their lives through our wish granting program. Granting their wishes not only creates positive memories and a sense of normalcy but also proves how much love, support and hope is out there for all children, D anielle Gletow, executive director of One Simple W ish said. F loridas foster children often arrive in the community-based care system with little to nothing and organizations such as One S imple Wish support their hopes and dreams by providing them with a wish granted, said Kurt Kelly, CEO of Florida Coalition for Children. This campaign is a reminder of the wonderful partnerships we have here in Florida and how coming together as a community we can better the lives Florida's abused, abandoned and neglected children." S ince the Southwest F lorida Foster and Adoptive Parent Association signed up in March 2013, more than 150 wishes have been granted for its children. The fact that One Simple Wish provides gifts for foster children that are donated by people from around the country shows our children that there is hope and that they are never alone. We thank D anielle for acting on her vision and making One S imple Wish possible for our children, Trudy P etkovich, president of the F lorida State Foster/Adoptive Parent Association said. To grant a wish, visit www.onesimplewish.org to view current needs. W ishes are searchable by location, organization, child age, price range and type of gift. Florida children have already r eceived numerous gifts through One Simple W ish, including more than 20 wishes granted so far this month.

Cliff Partlow staff photographer TREASURE COAST Each year, hundreds of towns on the water across the U.S. hold festive holiday boat parades in the month of December. Many local boaters participate, festooning their vessels with lights and joining the parade, while others line the route with their boats in order to enjoy the best view of the show. These seasonal events can cause crowded and disorienting conditions on the water, however. The non-profit S ea Tow Foundation offers the following tips to boaters who are thinking of taking their vessels out to watch a holiday boat parade, in order to ensure they will be safe for everyone. 1. Designate a Sober S kipper to stay at the helm all evening and be responsible for returning the boat and its passengers safely to shore after the parade is over. 2. Watch your weight. Dont overload the boat with passengers. The number of seats available on board is not always the best indicator of capacity. Look for the boats capacity plate on the transom or by the helm, or look up the passenger capacity in the boats manual. 3. Dont forget your life jacket. Make sure everyone onboard the boat is wearing warm clothes topped by either a traditional or an inflatable life jacket that fits. Navigating at night in a crowd of other vessels can be just as dangerous as boating in stormy weather or in fog. 4.Things look different at night. Remember that at night, visual navigation markers you rely on during the day may be invisible. Chart your route to the on-water paradeviewing zone in advance, and use GPS-enabled electronics to help you find it, if necessary. 5.Relax and enjoy the show. Don't be in a r ush to get home; let some of the boat traffic clear out before you raise anchor after the parade is over. 6.Listen Up! Obey U.S. Coast Guard and C oast Guard Auxiliary designated zones and follow their orders they are only out there to protect you.

Politicians avoid that question, but under current law, the unemployed can get up to 99 weeks of benefits capped at $564 per week. This sounds very much like permanent pay from the government. R ecipients do not have to get up every morning to go to work. They do not have to pay for transportation to and from work. They do not have to purchase appropriate work clothing and they do not have to pay for lunch. Do we want to provide permanent compensation? And, if the answer is yes, can this nation afford it?Just not worth itTheres not enough money in the world to make me sit behind a desk and deal with todays youth. They are disrespectful hooligans who do not care about themselves, their peers, parents or the teachers that try to teach them. M aybe the school system should bring back corporal punishment. If teachers could swat these wisecracking kids, then maybe they would be able to gain a little respect.In the wake of tragedyIt amazes me how the community comes together after a tragedy, but soon thereafter, the police presence rescinds and the thugs find their ways back onto the streets. Dont the police understand that they have to maintain a presence in afflicted areas? Dont parents realize what their children are doing out at night? Par ents turn an ignorant eye to their kids, leaving them to either get killed on the street or spend their lives in prison. These parents know their kids are up to no good, but dont do a thing. However, when the truth comes to light, they want to scream and fuss. The screaming and fussing should have been aimed at those kids years ago. I feel sorry for those who are hurting, but the violence hurts us all. We, as a community, must continue to work together to rid our streets, schools and neighborhoods of these no-good thugs.To all dog ownersI am a dog owner. I like all dogs, well not the ankle biting yippy ones, but I don't like owners who do not clean up after their pets. If the sight or presence of dog feces doesn't bother you, great, keep your dog at home and enjoy it. If y ou choose to venture off your property, clean it up!Unfit mothers should not be drivingS ome people are not made to be mothers. I was driving side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat, the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my eyes. Where are the police? This person could get into a car accident. What has happened to parents? Dont they have any brains? I pity that poor child.Medical technicians need more trainingThis is in response to the rant about medical technicians. I wholeheartedly agree with you but you have given them top quality title. M ostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of training and are allowed to administer medication, take blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of medical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses should perform. This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do these things in other states. No wonder there are always outbreaks of infections and other diseases that even the physicians have a hard time diagnosing. Y ou see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want to call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a status symbol. Im sure they do not even know which end goes on the patients chest. This is what nursing has come to. What a disaster. 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 Me dicaid. 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.What happened to pet registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals havent. Why wont the county follow up on these regulations?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. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?Expectations are downLow expectations by public-school teachers result in poor performance by our students. Compared to other countries, the U.S. ranks 21st out of 30 in science and 25th in mathematics. Wo rse yet, 1.2 million students each year fail to graduate. We should shake up K-12 education so that every American child is prepared for higher education or a productive career. Got something to say?

S ee more photos, page A7.Cliff Partlow staff photographer Many people are surprised (shocked even) when they r eplace their ancient computer with a brand spanking new machine with 10-times the horsepower than their old one, but somehow their new computer still crawls at a snails pace when connected to the internet. I often get calls from frustrated people who tell me stories like I just got a new machine but my home page takes forever to load or every time I try to watch a video online, it freezes, goes for a bit then stops again over and over! I cant stand it! The frustration is usually mixed with confusion because they figure that, since its a new machine with gobs of ram and all sorts of processor power, it should be much faster than their old machine. Now as a rule this is usually true their new machine is actually much faster than their old machine and if you set the two of them up side by side yo u ll see the new one start up much faster, open programs much faster and visibly outperform the old machine with every test y ou throw at it. That is until y ou start doing things that depend upon a fast internet connection. If you are trying to do things like watching a Y ouTube video or waiting for a page like the Yahoo portal to load and if the internet connection is not what it should be, things grind to a halt and start working at the same pace as the old machine. When people start off by telling me that watching videos over the internet is frustrating because it pauses and skips, I usually tell them about the old work around of starting the video and then immediately hitting the pause button for a while. (I still use this technique just to make sure, especially if its a long video Ill start the video then pause it and go get a cup of coffee or something. Then when I come back Ill hit play and it usually plays without a hitch). What were doing by starting it and pausing for a while is giving the data stream a good head start before releasing the play head in the hopes that the point of the video that we are watching doesnt catch up with the data stream thats downloading. If the internet connection is slow and we hit play and dont hit the pause button, the video will sometimes play faster than the computer can download the data that makes up the video and the whole thing stops while it downloads a bit more. This process is called buffering and has more to do with the speed of the internet connection than it does with the speed of the computer. Pause the video and give the data stream plenty of time to buffer and when you hit the play button again the play head wont have a chance of catching the data stream and it should play smoothly. W ith YouTube videos you can even see it in action start a video and hit pause, then watch and youll see a thin red line start to grow from the left to the right even though the video isnt playing. That line is an indication of how much of the data stream is downloaded and the trick is to make sure its far enough ahead. Catch up to the line and the video will pause and try to buffer on its own but usually the automatic buffering doesnt give the data stream enough of a head start and the process r epeats itself over and over. O k, so we know that even a brand new computer will come to a screeching halt if its trying to do something ov er a slow internet connection, but how does one go about testing that? One way to check is to fire upCheck your internet connection speed when facing issues COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY See COMPUT E, A8 Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

W ith bullets, bombs and plum pudding, Christmas 1914 imagines what it might have been like in Great Britain during that season of World War I in a special walk-through drama production at K ings Baptist Church in Ve ro Beach. W e will recreate that amazing night through the eyes of one troubled Br itish soldier who had long been looking for peace in his own mind, church staff said in a press r elease. I t is a story of love, sorro w and the reminder of the hope that the birth of J esus has brought to an otherwise dreary world. The free production will take place nightly beginning Dec. 12 through Dec. 15, and again Dec. 19 through Dec. 22, beginning at 6 p.m. I t is a fictional account based on true events, said J oe Hill, event spokesman. The production was brainchild of the Rev. Fr ank Ellis, senior pastor of Kings Baptist Church, and several others worked with him to refine the story and program. There are close to 200 people working together to bring the production to life, from building sets, creating costumes, to actors and lighting technicians, Mr. Hill said. M any of his congregation members have stepped up to participate in the drama, from children playing newsboys in the streets of London, to senior citizens playing wounded soldiers and congregants in a church scene. In addition to building sets and creating scenes, members made costumes for the period piece, or helped alter the dozens of purchased tuxedos, dresses and military uniforms the many actors wear during the course of the production. I nstead of a play where people come to one building and sit in their seats while the actors and scenes change in front of them, visitors will move from one scene to another, with the action taking place both indoors and outside, Mr. Hill said. W e are using our whole campus for this, he said. The scenes follow the story of Alfred Williamson and his life preand postwar. Circumstances in his life bring him to a crossr oads more than once, allowing the audience to see a relatable man wrestling with decisions that shape his life forever. The production lasts approximately one hour. As guests arrive, they are assigned to a group of no more than 25 people with which they will experience the production. A docent will guide them through the presentation and each group will be sent in approximately seven minutes apart. The first show of each night will begin at 6 p.m. and the last one at 9 p .m., the Rev. Ellis said.FRIDAY, DEC. 13 1 6th annual Craft Fair at Sebastian River Medical Center: 7 a.m. through 1:30 p.m. in the hospital's dining room. All sales are cash only.

I spent many of my teenage years and then some in Palm Bay. I remember the excitement I felt when a new course would open. My father, a few of his golf buddies, along with my friends would play the municipal courses around the area. My family belonged to Port Malabar C ountry Club and I spent a lot of time roaming those fairways. One thing I remember w ell was the feeling of anticipation as we watched P alm Gardens Golf Course being built on Minton Road in West Melbourne. We couldn't wait to try a new course. P alm Gardens GC opened in 1979, the same year I started senior high at Palm B ay High School. It was nothing like what we were used to playing. The course took no tee times. It was first come, first served all day, every day. There was no driving range, but there we re practice or warm-up nets and a putting green. One thing I remember about the course, that is true to this day, is that it is family owned and operated. I t's easy to feel right at home when you're here. The course, designed by E dward C. Ryder, consists of only nine holes, and plays to a par of 30. There are two sets of tees, one playing to 1,596 yards, the other 1,411. The layout is great for seniors, beginners and juniors, as well as better players who wish to work on their accuracy and course management. The many lakes, narrow fairways and pesky bunkers offer plenty of challenge to golfers of every skill. If you're looking for a quick game after work or to start the weekend before the r est of the family gets out of bed, this is your course. You can walk it very easily and without having to carry more than a half-dozen clubs. P alm Gardens starts off with its most intriguing hole. The first is a par-4 that makes a 90 degree dogleg r ight that starts about 200yards off the tee. Hit your drive much farther than that and you will find yourself in trees or water. Anything too short and you'll find your short approach blocked by trees. The second hole is a 135yard par-3 with a very narrow, yet deep green. M issing right or left means y ou will likely find sand. The third is a 300-yard par-4 that requires a wellplaced fairway wood or hybrid off the tee. A large bunker guards the front of the large green. M easuring about 175yards from the back tees, the fourth hole is the second longest par-3 on the course. It is also the only hole without a bunker and boasts the largest green. At the par-3 fifth, you will likely hit another different club from the tee. While P alm Gardens GC is short and tight, every hole is a different length and makes y ou hit different clubs at nearly every tee. It's a great design trait, which often isn't found on much longer, much more expensive tracks. Fr om the back tees, the sixth hole can play as long as 200 yards. Bunkers guard this green on both sides. B etween the tee and the green trees pinch in at the sides, making the hole feel narrower than it is Y ou can practically throw y our ball from the tee onto the seventh green which is completely surrounded by four bunkers. The eighth hole has water from the tee all the way to the green and guarding the left side. If you play too safely to the right you bring more sand and trees into play. If every great course has a r isk-reward finishing hole, then put Palm Gardens on that list. The ninth is a par-4 that can be played in many ways. From the tee you can thread a wedge or short iron onto the fairway protected by water on both sides. Or, y ou can pull out a big stick and try to reach the green 225yards away. Right of the green is out-of-bounds, left is the clubhouse. Anything else not on the green is likely wet or covered in sand. It's a hole that can win or lose you your match. Pa lm gardens GC is quite fun and a quick stroll if you only have a couple of hours to play. R ates are great as well. To walk and play nine holes is less than $12. There are also single ($600) and family ($780) memberships that give you unlimited greens fees for an entire year.

A golfing trip down memory lane GOLFJAMES STAM MER OutF rom page B3 See OUT, B5Local nonprofit needs aid with land purchaseBREVARD One local nonprofit organization is asking for financial aid from the Brevard community to assist in the purchase of several acres of undeveloped land. Fr iends for Animals Sanctuary, a local organization with a mission to rescue abandoned, abused or injured domestic animals, is trying to obtain 20 acres of land in Palm Bay for the development of a no-kill animal sanctuary. The organization is asking for help from several donors by donating as much as $180,000 for the purchase. K athy Bean, public relations specialist for Friends for Animals Sanctuary, said the no-kill sanctuary will provide a safe and open area for a variety of animals, such as cats, dogs and horses. The euthanasia rate is approximately 75 percent for cats, dogs, rabbits, kittens and puppies (brought into shelters) and, in October alone this year, 860 animals were brought into the shelters, she said. We need to stop the current cycle of disposable animals and create future generations of caring and responsible pet o wners. Ms. Bean said the organization plans to build a campus-style sanctuary, with climate controlled suites. There will also be long, grassy runs for dogs, and the cat facility will have platforms on the walls for the felines to climb and a screened outside area for basking in the sun. Ms. Bean said funding for the land is needed as soon as possible, so the organization can begin construction of the sanctuary. U pon acceptance of our offer, we will need the cash upon closing she said about the land deal. Nondeveloped property cannot be mortgaged, so the money will be needed immediately. A ccording to statistics provided by the Brevard C ounty Animal Services and Enforcement, the euthanasia rates for 2012/2013 is 4,100 animals. W e are progressing at bringing down the kill r ates, Ms. Bean said. Even one unnecessary death is a tragedy. The nonprofit is also asking for volunteers to help with construction and clearing areas of the land to build the sanctuary and many other services.

085593 Sponsored by Rescue Animal Adoption Event590 Beachland Boulevard Ve ro Beach December 16th 10am 3pm Cameras to be installed on county school busesINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Indian River County school districto wned buses will soon have a new safety feature installed video cameras. Du r ing the Dec. 2 meeting, district school board members voted unanimously to approve more than $110,000 on 62 camera systems for r egularly used school buses owned by the district. V ideo cameras on school buses are not required, but are seen as an excellent safety feature for students and drivers, said Bill Fritz, assistant superintendent of human r esources and risk management. S ome of the newest buses in the district's fleet already have working cameras, while some older buses have video systems that date back to the "VHS era" and aren't used consistently, while other buses have no recording equipment at all, Mr. Fr itz said. S hould a question arise about behavior on a bus, whether by a student or a driver, or if an emergency should occur, district officials would have the ability, with the new four-camera system, to verify what happened, he said. The district will purchase the SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 11, No. 12 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 THE NEED FOR SPEEDT esting your internet speed might help P ageA6 INSIDE 0845631120 S.

LUCIE COUNTY Local dentist Michael H uber and his daughters, T ess, 20, and Abigail, 17, lost their lives in a plane crash on Dec. 8. A ccording to Melissa B ujeda, public information officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. the 1978 Cessna model 310R aircraft was headed to the Jacksonville Executive Airport when it missed an approach and crashed at the edge of a large retention pond in a subdivision in Jacksonville. They reported to the tower that they couldn't see the runway, Ms. Bujeda said in a video on the S heriff's Office website. They were told to fly around. At that time the tower got an alert that it was low altitude and then we started getting calls around 6:20 p.m. that a plane had crashed." Mr. Huber, a popular Fo rt Pierce dentist and his two daughters, Tess, a sophomore at University of North Florida, and Abigail, a senior at Lincoln Park A cademy, lived in Po rt S t. Lucie.

S ee more photos, page A4 .Cliff Partlow staff photographer T oys, coats, change still needed in charity campaignsINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Last weekend, hundreds of unwrapped toys were donated to the Salvation Army during the Walmart's F ill the Truck toy drive in both Vero Beach and S ebastian, but that's not the only place to support the nonprofit this holiday season. There are still two days left to drop off toys at Salv ation Army locations or in marked bins at local Walmart locations, said John Co r api, director of development for the Salvation Army of Indian River C ounty. To y donations will be accepted through Dec. 15 and the collected items will be distributed among local children by the Salvation Army. Donations of coats can also be made at the collection bins, a press re lease said. Last year, the Fill the Tr uck drive happened during the course of one weekend, but the program was extended to three weeks, the release said. Last year, nearly 150,000 toys and coats were donated nationwide through the F ill the Truck program. Ringing bells at locations around the county also indicate the Red Kettle C ampaign is in full swing. "O ur goal for the Red K ettle Campaign is $120,000," Mr. Corapi said. "D ue to Thanksgiving coming late this year, we are five days short being able to ring the bell. That makes our goal that much tougher to reach, so we need heavy community support for donations and as many volunteer bell r ingers as possible," he said. There are 15 locations for bell ringers, and shifts are usually two hours long, beginning at 10 a.m. and concluding at 8 p.m. in most areas. The Red Kettle Campaign is historically the nonprofit's largest annual fundraiser and sustains the organization's various programs throughout the rest of the year. Archaeology dig to begin in JanuaryBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com See CAMPAIGNS, A3INDIAN RIVER COUNTY An agreement between Mercyhurst University and the Old Vero Ice Age Site committee last w eek cements the start date of an archaeological dig in Vero Beach next y ear. B eginning in January, the Mercyhurst Archaeology Institute of Mercyhurst U niversity in Erie, Penn., will excavate an area in the main drainage canal in Ve ro B each known as the "O ld Vero Man" site in hopes of discovering artifacts from early inhabitants of Indian River C ounty that would point to their way of life. The dig is expected to last through May and any items found will be analyzed by scientists and archaeologists from the institute in a lab, and thereafter would be r eturned to Vero Beach, said Randy Old, spokesman for the Old Ve ro I ce Age Sites committee. The site is about 10feet away from where fossils and evidence of saber tooth cats, mastodons and other fossils were discovered in 1915, as well as human remains that have come to be known as "Vero M an," Mr. Old said.By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com File photoGary Pierce, Old Vero Ice Age Sites Committee contractor and board member, helps map out an area in June that will be excavated on the Old Vero Man site in January.

This is the third year that the shipping and packing store donated their profits as part of their anniversary celebration. The community has warmly embraced me and my business since we moved to Vero Beach, and this is a way that I can say 'thank you' and give back," said Marc Richard, owner. A check for $550 was presented to VBCBA Treasurer D ixie Powell recently, and those funds will be distributed to local Christian charities during the nonprofit's annual Celebration of Giving luncheon on Dec. 19. When the corporate office for Postal Connections found out about the endeavor, they committed to donate an additional $100, according to Mr. Richard. P ostal Connections is located in the Publix plaza at 1275 U.S. 1, Vero Beach.

After hearing about the Vero Beach location's donation, the Corporate offices of Postal Connections also donated $100. mobile surveillance systems from Alabama-based AngelTr ax. Included in the purchase price are data storage backups, which is needful if the memory cards within the cameras become unusable, Mr. Fritz said. Only the buses used regularly will be retro-fitted with the camera systems, although the spares are used frequently. Staff said the buses that are kept as spares will soon be phased out due to age and it would not be cost-effective to outfit them with on board cameras.

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Hundreds of families with kindergarteners will be r eading a new version of the classic "Three Little Pigs" tale before bedtime, thanks to a donation from a local business through The Education Foundation of Indian River County. M idFlorida Credit Union partnered with the nonprofit education organization to donate 1,000 books to Indian River County schoolchildren in kindergarten last week, and each classr oom held a special story time to introduce the gift, said Education Foundation r epresentatives. L yndee Dutrow, bank manager of the Sebastian M idFlorida Credit Union branch, read "The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat B ad Wolf" by Mark Teague to six kindergarten classes at Fellsmere Elementary on De c. 4, during the bank's G ift of Reading week. "I r eally enjoy reading to the children," Ms. Dutrow said. Du r ing the first reading of the day, more than two dozen students sat quietly on a rug as the pages began to turn and while Ms. D utrow read each line of text. Then, a curious thing happened. While they were looking at the pictures, the children kept noticing things that I had never seen, and I've r ead the book more than seven times," Ms. Dutrow said with a laugh. This year is the eighth y ear of the Gift of Reading program and the credit union will distribute up to 14,000 books in seven counties, a press release said. At F ellsmere Elementary alone, the credit union donated 110 books. N ine other elementary schools in the district also r eceived visits from MidF lorida Credit Union representatives and a stack of books for each kindergartener. P atricia Shaw, Fellsmere Elementary School reading coach, said having an organization come to read and donate books to every single child is quite rare. "I t is very special," Ms. S haw said. The school is trying to build partnerships with businesses and other organizations and having volunteer readers is one of the ways an organization can become involved. "W e' ve had an officer from the police department come and read several times," Ms. Shaw said. R eading is crucial to a child's academic success and therefore something the school works hard to develop in students, she said. R eading is a skill that must continually be developed in young students and having a new book to take home during the Christmas break is a good incentive for a family to have some quality reading time outside of a school assignment. This was the perfect time for it," Ms. Shaw said.

L eft: Manuel Perez finds extra characters in the pages of Three Little Pigs' during the Wednesday's Gift of Reading.Cliff Partlow staff photographer By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com The excavation site is actually below the surface, about five feet," he said. The sediment closer to the surface is more likely to have been disturbed, so to find items preserved for y ears, the crew will need to dig deep. "A bout five feet down or so, that's where you can find some things that are valuable, valuable in knowledge of what is in there. You can learn about the weather, animals and people," Mr. O ld said. "I t' s a knowledge hunt, not a treasure hunt," he said. J ames Adovasio, the archaeology institute's director, along with institute r esearch archaeologist C. Andrew Hemmings, will direct the project in Vero B each. "W e searched for the very best archaeologist that had experience with excavations similar to ours in Vero Beach and we have the very best in Dr Adovasio," Mr. Old said. "I t is a compliment to the city and the site; it's a big deal to us. This site is at least the most important site east of the Mississippi, if not the U.S., for this time frame," Mr. Old said. The Old Vero Man site is steeped in controversy, largely centered on whether the human remains in Vero we re of a more recent age than the extinct animal bones due to mixing of geological layers. The Vero site r emains in the literature on early American inhabitants, but its status is unresolved, a press release said. S ome scientists measure the remains discovered in 1915 as being 13,000 years old. "F r om the beginning, Vero was one of the more infamous archaeological sites in No r th America because it was seen as such a threat to the then perceived wisdom that no humans had lived here during the last Ice Age," said Director Adovasio in a press release. The Vero Beach site, as w ell as others around the country, was dismissed because the field methods of excavation weren't perceived as rigorous by some experts, he said. "B ut, because of the phenomenal preservation of Ice Age plant and animal mater ials at that site, this new excavation will serve to illuminate a time frame in the American Southeast that no other site can, with or without human associations," Di r ector Adovasio continued. Whatever information is in there, we are going to get it," he said. A number of Mercyhurst archaeology students will participate in the dig, as will other Mercyhurst staff and a graduate student from the U niversity of West Florida. The Old Vero Ice Age Sites committee has been working to raise funds for the project in the community for several years and will contribute more than $250,000 to the project, while the archaeology institute and parent university will contribute more than $100,000 in funds, as well as provide the excavation labor and laboratory research, Mr. O ld said.

"O ne Simple Wish is a wonderful program that allows donors to grant small wishes that have a big impact on the lives of our foster children," said Esther Jacobo, DCF Interim Secretary. "By having the ability to see who their donation is helping, donors know they are making a tangible difference." One Simple Wish matches individuals who want to give with current and former foster children in need of simple wishes. W ishes start at $10 and have a maximum gift amount of $500. Wishes can be granted all yearr ound. "One Simple Wish is proud to support Florida's foster children by empowering people all across the country to brighten their lives through our wish granting program. Granting their wishes not only creates positive memories and a sense of normalcy but also proves how much love, support and hope is out there for all children," D anielle Gletow, executive director of One Simple W ish said. "F lorida's foster children often arrive in the community-based care system with little to nothing and organizations such as One S imple Wish support their hopes and dreams by providing them with a wish granted," said Kurt Kelly, CEO of Florida Coalition for Children. "This campaign is a reminder of the wonderful partnerships we have here in Florida and how coming together as a community we can better the lives Florida's abused, abandoned and neglected children." S ince the Southwest F lorida Foster and Adoptive Parent Association signed up in March 2013, more than 150 wishes have been granted for its children. The fact that One Simple Wish provides gifts for foster children that are donated by people from around the country shows our children that there is hope and that they are never alone. We thank D anielle for acting on her vision and making One S imple Wish possible for our children," Trudy P etkovich, president of the F lorida State Foster/Adoptive Parent Association said. To grant a wish, visit www.onesimplewish.org to view current needs. W ishes are searchable by location, organization, child age, price range and type of gift. Florida children have already r eceived numerous gifts through One Simple W ish, including more than 20 wishes granted so far this month.

Cliff Partlow staff photographer TREASURE COAST Each year, hundreds of towns on the water across the U.S. hold festive holiday boat parades in the month of December. Many local boaters participate, festooning their vessels with lights and joining the parade, while others line the route with their boats in order to enjoy the best view of the show. These seasonal events can cause crowded and disorienting conditions on the water, however. The non-profit S ea Tow Foundation offers the following tips to boaters who are thinking of taking their vessels out to watch a holiday boat parade, in order to ensure they will be safe for everyone. 1. Designate a Sober S kipper to stay at the helm all evening and be responsible for returning the boat and its passengers safely to shore after the parade is over. 2. Watch your weight. Don't overload the boat with passengers. The number of seats available on board is not always the best indicator of capacity. Look for the boat's capacity plate on the transom or by the helm, or look up the passenger capacity in the boat's manual. 3. Don't forget your life jacket. Make sure everyone onboard the boat is wearing warm clothes topped by either a traditional or an inflatable life jacket that fits. Navigating at night in a crowd of other vessels can be just as dangerous as boating in stormy weather or in fog. 4.Things look different at night. Remember that at night, visual navigation markers you rely on during the day may be invisible. Chart your route to the on-water paradeviewing zone in advance, and use GPS-enabled electronics to help you find it, if necessary. 5.Relax and enjoy the show. Don't be in a r ush to get home; let some of the boat traffic clear out before you raise anchor after the parade is over. 6.Listen Up! Obey U.S. Coast Guard and C oast Guard Auxiliary designated zones and follow their orders they are only out there to protect you.

Politicians avoid that question, but under current law, the unemployed can get up to 99 weeks of benefits capped at $564 per week. This sounds very much like permanent pay from the government. R ecipients do not have to get up every morning to go to work. They do not have to pay for transportation to and from work. They do not have to purchase appropriate work clothing and they do not have to pay for lunch. Do we want to provide permanent compensation? And, if the answer is yes, can this nation afford it?Just not worth itThere's not enough money in the world to make me sit behind a desk and deal with today's youth. They are disrespectful hooligans who do not care about themselves, their peers, parents or the teachers that try to teach them. M aybe the school system should bring back corporal punishment. If teachers could swat these wisecracking kids, then maybe they would be able to gain a little respect.In the wake of tragedyIt amazes me how the community comes together after a tragedy, but soon thereafter, the police presence rescinds and the thugs find their ways back onto the streets. Don't the police understand that they have to maintain a presence in afflicted areas? Don't parents realize what their children are doing out at night? Pa r ents turn an ignorant eye to their kids, leaving them to either get killed on the street or spend their lives in prison. These parents know their kids are up to no good, but don't do a thing. However, when the truth comes to light, they want to scream and fuss. The screaming and fussing should have been aimed at those kids years ago. I feel sorry for those who are hurting, but the violence hurts us all. We, as a community, must continue to work together to rid our streets, schools and neighborhoods of these no-good thugs.To all dog ownersI am a dog owner. I like all dogs, well not the ankle biting yippy ones, but I don't like owners who do not clean up after their pets. If the sight or presence of dog feces doesn't bother you, great, keep your dog at home and enjoy it. If y ou choose to venture off your property, clean it up!Unfit mothers should not be drivingS ome people are not made to be mothers. I was driving side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat, the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my eyes. Where are the police? This person could get into a car accident. What has happened to parents? Don't they have any brains? I pity that poor child.Medical technicians need more trainingThis is in response to the rant about medical technicians. I wholeheartedly agree with you but you have given them top quality title. M ostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of training and are allowed to administer medication, take blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of medical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses should perform. This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do these things in other states. No wonder there are always outbreaks of infections and other diseases that even the physicians have a hard time diagnosing. Y ou see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want to call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a status symbol. I'm sure they do not even know which end goes on the patient's chest. This is what nursing has come to. What a disaster. 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 Me dicaid. 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.What happened to pet registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals haven't. Why won't the county follow up on these regulations?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. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?Expectations are downLow expectations by public-school teachers result in poor performance by our students. Compared to other countries, the U.S. ranks 21st out of 30 in science and 25th in mathematics. Wo rse yet, 1.2 million students each year fail to graduate. We should shake up K-12 education so that every American child is prepared for higher education or a productive career. Got something to say?

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, DEC. 13, 2013 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Lighting up the holidaysFo ur-year-old Jalyn Rossnell shows off her holiday lights at the Holidays with your City Rec Department's Holiday Rec Run 3296Go. S ee more photos, page A7.Cliff Partlow staff photographer Many people are surprised (shocked even) when they r eplace their ancient computer with a brand spanking new machine with 10-times the horsepower than their old one, but somehow their new computer still crawls at a snail's pace when connected to the internet. I often get calls from frustrated people who tell me stories like "I just got a new machine but my home page takes forever to load" or "every time I try to watch a video online, it freezes, goes for a bit then stops again over and over! I can't stand it!" The frustration is usually mixed with confusion because they figure that, since it's a new machine with gobs of ram and all sorts of processor power, it should be much faster than their old machine. No w as a rule this is usually true their new machine is actually much faster than their old machine and if you set the two of them up side by side yo u' ll see the new one start up much faster, open programs much faster and visibly outperform the old machine with every test y ou throw at it. That is until y ou start doing things that depend upon a fast internet connection. If y ou are trying to do things like watching a Y ouTube video or waiting for a page like the Yahoo portal to load and if the internet connection is not what it should be, things grind to a halt and start working at the same pace as the old machine. When people start off by telling me that watching videos over the internet is frustrating because it pauses and "skips," I usually tell them about the old work around of starting the video and then immediately hitting the "pause" button for a while. (I still use this technique just to make sure, especially if it's a long video I'll start the video then pause it and go get a cup of coffee or something. Then when I come back I'll hit play and it usually plays without a hitch). What we're doing by starting it and pausing for a while is giving the data stream a good head start before releasing the play head in the hopes that the point of the video that we are watching doesn't catch up with the data stream that's downloading. If the internet connection is slow and we hit play and don't hit the pause button, the video will sometimes play faster than the computer can download the data that makes up the video and the whole thing stops while it downloads a bit more. This process is called "buffering" and has more to do with the speed of the internet connection than it does with the speed of the computer. Pause the video and give the data stream plenty of time to buffer and when you hit the play button again the play head won't have a chance of catching the data stream and it should play smoothly. W ith YouTube videos you can even see it in action start a video and hit pause, then watch and you'll see a thin red line start to grow from the left to the right even though the video isn't playing. That line is an indication of how much of the data stream is downloaded and the trick is to make sure it's far enough ahead. Catch up to the line and the video will pause and try to buffer on its own but usually the automatic buffering doesn't give the data stream enough of a head start and the process r epeats itself over and over. O k, so we know that even a brand new computer will come to a screeching halt if it's trying to do something ov er a slow internet connection, but how does one go about testing that? One way to check is to fire upCheck your internet connection speed when facing issues COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY See COMPUT E, A8 Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

W ith that in mind, ICBA and Marine Bank offer the following tips: M ake sure your computer and browser are secure. Set your firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware software to automatically update and scan your computer. Don't create passwords that include easily accessible personal information, such as mother's maiden name or date of birth. Instead, use something unique that only you know. Don't give personal information over the phone, through the mail or on the I nternet unless you know whom you're dealing with and preferably only if you've initiated the contact. Never give out Social Security or driver's license numbers. If y ou must share personal information, confirm that y ou are dealing with a legitimate organization. I f you receive an email asking for personal information, do not hit the r eply button or click on any link in the email. Instead, go directly to the sender's site by typing in its website address. Look for secure sites with an "s" in the URL (https://) and a closed-padlock icon on the Web page when making purchases. These websites are secure. Always doublecheck the URL to be sure y ou are shopping with the company you intended to shop with. A simple typo can help identity thieves. The most important thing is our customers' safety and financial security," said Mr. Penney. "If any customer has questions about the security of their financial information, our team at Marine Bank is more than happy to answer any problems or concerns.

W ith bullets, bombs and plum pudding, "Christmas 1914" imagines what it might have been like in Great Britain during that season of World War I in a special walk-through drama production at K ing's Baptist Church in Ve ro B each. "W e will recreate that amazing night through the eyes of one troubled Br itish soldier who had long been looking for peace in his own mind," church staff said in a press r elease. "I t is a story of love, sorro w and the reminder of the hope that the birth of J esus has brought to an otherwise dreary world." The free production will take place nightly beginning Dec. 12 through Dec. 15, and again Dec. 19 through Dec. 22, beginning at 6 p.m. "I t is a fictional account based on true events," said J oe Hill, event spokesman. The production was brainchild of the Rev. Fr ank Ellis, senior pastor of King's Baptist Church, and several others worked with him to refine the story and program. There are close to 200 people working together to bring the production to life, from building sets, creating costumes, to actors and lighting technicians, Mr. Hill said. M any of his congregation members have stepped up to participate in the drama, from children playing newsboys in the streets of London, to senior citizens playing wounded soldiers and congregants in a church scene. In addition to building sets and creating scenes, members made costumes for the period piece, or helped alter the dozens of purchased tuxedos, dresses and military uniforms the many actors wear during the course of the production. I nstead of a play where people come to one building and sit in their seats while the actors and scenes change in front of them, visitors will move from one scene to another, with the action taking place both indoors and outside, Mr. Hill said. "W e are using our whole campus for this," he said. The scenes follow the story of Alfred Williamson and his life preand postwar. Circumstances in his life bring him to a crossr oads more than once, allowing the audience to see a relatable man wrestling with decisions that shape his life forever. The production lasts approximately one hour. As guests arrive, they are assigned to a group of no more than 25 people with which they will experience the production. A docent will guide them through the presentation and each group will be sent in approximately seven minutes apart. The first show of each night will begin at 6 p.m. and the last one at 9 p .m., the Rev. Ellis said.FRIDAY, DE C. 13 1 6th annual Craft Fair at Sebastian River Medical Center: 7 a.m. through 1:30 p.m. in the hospital's dining room. All sales are cash only.

My father, a few of his golf buddies, along with my friends would play the municipal courses around the area. My family belonged to Port Malabar C ountry Club and I spent a lot of time roaming those fairways. One thing I remember w ell was the feeling of anticipation as we watched P alm Gardens Golf Course being built on Minton Road in West Melbourne. We couldn't wait to try a new course. P alm Gardens GC opened in 1979, the same year I started senior high at Palm B ay High School. It was nothing like what we were used to playing. The course took no tee times. It was first come, first served" all day, every day. There was no driving range, but there we re practice or warm-up nets and a putting green. One thing I remember about the course, that is true to this day, is that it is family owned and operated. I t's easy to feel right at home when you're here. The course, designed by E dward C. Ryder, consists of only nine holes, and plays to a par of 30. There are two sets of tees, one playing to 1,596 yards, the other 1,411. The layout is great for seniors, beginners and juniors, as well as better players who wish to work on their accuracy and course management. The many lakes, narrow fairways and pesky bunkers offer plenty of challenge to golfers of every skill. If y ou're looking for a quick game after work or to start the weekend before the r est of the family gets out of bed, this is your course. You can walk it very easily and without having to carry more than a half-dozen clubs. P alm Gardens starts off with its most intriguing hole. The first is a par-4 that makes a 90 degree dogleg r ight that starts about 200yards off the tee. Hit your drive much farther than that and you will find yourself in trees or water. Anything too short and you'll find your short approach blocked by trees. The second hole is a 135yard par-3 with a very narrow, yet deep green. M issing right or left means y ou will likely find sand. The third is a 300-yard par-4 that requires a wellplaced fairway wood or hybrid off the tee. A large bunker guards the front of the large green. M easuring about 175yards from the back tees, the fourth hole is the second longest par-3 on the course. It is also the only hole without a bunker and boasts the largest green. At the par-3 fifth, you will likely hit another different club from the tee. While P alm Gardens GC is short and tight, every hole is a different length and makes y ou hit different clubs at nearly every tee. It's a great design trait, which often isn't found on much longer, much more expensive tracks. Fr om the back tees, the sixth hole can play as long as 200 yards. Bunkers guard this green on both sides. B etween the tee and the green trees pinch in at the sides, making the hole feel narrower than it is Y ou can practically throw y our ball from the tee onto the seventh green which is completely surrounded by four bunkers. The eighth hole has water from the tee all the way to the green and guarding the left side. If you play too safely to the right you bring more sand and trees into play. If every great course has a r isk-reward finishing hole, then put Palm Gardens on that list. The ninth is a par-4 that can be played in many ways. From the tee you can thread a wedge or short iron onto the fairway protected by water on both sides. Or, y ou can pull out a big stick and try to reach the green 225yards away. Right of the green is out-of-bounds, left is the clubhouse. Anything else not on the green is likely wet or covered in sand. It's a hole that can win or lose you your match. Pa lm gardens GC is quite fun and a quick stroll if you only have a couple of hours to play. R ates are great as well. To walk and play nine holes is less than $12. There are also single ($600) and family ($780) memberships that give you unlimited greens fees for an entire year.

A golfing trip down memory lane GOLFJAMES STAM MER OutF rom page B3 See OUT, B5Local nonprofit needs aid with land purchaseBREVARD One local nonprofit organization is asking for financial aid from the Brevard community to assist in the purchase of several acres of undeveloped land. Fr iends for Animals Sanctuary, a local organization with a mission to rescue abandoned, abused or injured domestic animals, is trying to obtain 20 acres of land in Palm Bay for the development of a no-kill animal sanctuary. The organization is asking for help from several donors by donating as much as $180,000 for the purchase. K athy Bean, public relations specialist for Friends for Animals Sanctuary, said the no-kill sanctuary will provide a safe and open area for a variety of animals, such as cats, dogs and horses. The euthanasia rate is approximately 75 percent for cats, dogs, rabbits, kittens and puppies (brought into shelters) and, in October alone this year, 860 animals were brought into the shelters," she said. "We need to stop the current cycle of disposable animals' and create future generations of caring and responsible pet o wners." Ms. Bean said the organization plans to build a "campus-style" sanctuary, with climate controlled suites. There will also be long, grassy runs for dogs, and the cat facility will have platforms on the walls for the felines to climb and a screened outside area for basking in the sun. Ms. Bean said funding for the land is needed as soon as possible, so the organization can begin construction of the sanctuary. "U pon acceptance of our offer, we will need the cash upon closing" she said about the land deal. "Nondeveloped property cannot be mortgaged, so the money will be needed immediately." A ccording to statistics provided by the Brevard C ounty Animal Services and Enforcement, the euthanasia rates for 2012/2013 is 4,100 animals. "W e are progressing at bringing down the kill r ates," Ms. Bean said. "Even one unnecessary death is a tragedy." The nonprofit is also asking for volunteers to help with construction and clearing areas of the land to build the sanctuary and many other services.

There are a couple times during the course of the year when a bass fisherman is put to the test, and now is one of those times. C old fronts usually create problems. They bring with them cold Canadian air, a change in barometric pressure, and a change in water temperature. All of these elements cause changes with bass fishing. R emember to keep a P .M.A.: positive mental attitude. The bass can still be caught. It will take more concentration and probably a lot of looking to find them. There are several ways to do this. The presentation should be slower, with a smaller lure, and not the usual throw and crank cast, but a change in cranking, a stop and go type, something different, but slower. Y our crank baits and spinner baits should bring on some bites. Use the stop and go method and experiment to see how they want it. If you have no luck with the stop and go, go back to y our usual cranking style and don't be afraid to use jerk bait. Just remember, go slow. When you think you're hung up in the Hydrilla, just r ip it out. That creates a lot of strikes, so stay alert. A couple of other baits y ou might want to try are the Chug Bug and a Zara Sp ook. Again fish them slow with a lot of wait between cranks on the Chug Bug and the Spook. Walking the dog should be fished slowly also. Again, experiment. Don't forget to keep your eyes peeled looking for baitfish. Ha ve fun, stay safe and go catch a big'un.
