A $137,000 grant to Float-On C orporation in Vero Beach was the third conditional jobs grant extended to area businesses in 2013, and the second to go to a manufacturing company, said H elene Caseltine, economic development director for the I ndian River County Chamber of C ommerce. "W e' re very excited about these manufacturers, one of our target industries. It's great for our county," Ms. Caseltine said. A bout $301,000 in jobs grants was pledged by the county commission this year, with the receiving businesses promising 79 new jobs in return. In addition to F loat-On, an aluminum boat trailer manufacturer, grant funding was allocated to Triton S ubmarines, a personal submersible manufacturing company based in Ve ro B each, and Next Level Secur ity, a security company developing networked security systems that moved its headquarters to Indian River County from C arlsbad, Calif.

Senior donates time, birthday gifts to Meals on WheelsINDIAN RIVER COUNTY W alter Brock recently reached a milestone in his life, but even at his 90th birthday party, he was thinking of others. Mr. Brock is a regular volunteer for the Senior Resource Association's Meals on Wheels program and has been giving of his time to bring food and visit with homebound and disabled members of the community for about six years. I nstead of accepting birthday gifts for himself, Mr. Brock asked his friends to donate to his favorite program and their generosity provided close to $1,000 to M eals on Wheels.

ples of traditional pioneer foods, including sunbrewed iced tea, honey, oysters and yes, swamp cabbage. "I t' s serendipitous that we will be able to have the first one on Paul Kroegel's 150th birthday and be able to celebrate his legacy and the legacy of Sebastian pioneers, Mr. Lowry said. P aul Kroegel stands tall in the annals of Sebastian history and U.S. history as a German immigrant who fought to protect the nesting birds of the area from poachers and was made the nation's first national wildlife refuge manager by Pr esident Theodore Roosevelt. The area he defended is now known as Pelican I sland National Wildlife R efuge and hold the distinction of being the first national wildlife refuge in the country, but despite this, many people in the area hear the names "Paul Kroegel" and "Pelican I sland" and still have no idea of the history of it all, said Mr. Lowry. "I 'v e been telling the story of Paul Kroegel my entire career and his legacy is one we have to educate people about. He was a very significant conservationist," Mr. Lowry said. "W e want to reconnect the city of Sebastian with the r efuge and want Germany to re cognize its son and the great impact he had here, and we want to support local businesses with this festival," he said. The mayor of Mr. Kroegel's hometown, Chemnitz, Germany, as well as other representatives from Germany will attend and participate in the festivities, Mr. Lowry said. Local businesses will participate by donating food items and participate in the scavenger hunts, Mr. Lowry said. Du r ing the festival, Janice Kroegel Timinski, Mr. Kroegel's granddaughter, will pull up a rocking chair and share stories about her grandfather, who died in 1948. H is great-grandson, Tim T iminski, owner of Kroegel H omestead Produce on U.S. 1 in Sebastian, was involved in developing the festival and is one of the financial underwriters of the event. The Sembler family, another Sebastian pioneer family, has has been in the fishing business since the early 1900s and is also helping to cover costs for the event, Mr. Lowry said. "W e hope that this is a very unique and memorable event, unlike the other festiv als we already have in the area. We think it's very exciting for Sebastian," Mr. Lowry said.

A quaculture is the farming of aquatic animals and plants. Aquaculture products in Florida are worth about $69 million, according to the 2012 USDA and F lorida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. In F lorida, most clams consumed are grown by the shellfish farmer, also known as an aquaculturist. The aquaculturist produces about 50 percent of all the seafood consumed globally; and with consumer demand for seafood increasing, the need for aquaculturists is also increasing. Graduates of the Aquaculture program typically find jobs locally and several have started their own aquaculture business. Last semester, students enrolled in the Principals of M olluscan Aquaculture class planted hard-clam nursery seed, which is about the size of a small fingernail. Eight weeks later, the class harvested and sieved the clams to separate by size. After planting, the seeded clams need approximately 12-16 months to grow large enough for the market. This Spring, three aquaculture classes will be offered at the HBOI-FAU campus in Fort Pierce. The three classes are: Principles of Crustacean Aquaculture (FAS2150), Water Quality, S ystems and Operations (FAS2360), and Aquatic Animal Health Management (FAS2252). The classes will meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Spring registration is now underway.

instead to celebrate his birthday and to thank him for his volunteerism. H is eyes grew misty and his voice faltered as he read the kind words of the note signed by the office staff and kitchen volunteers. "I can't believe you all pulled this on me," Mr. Br ock said with a chuckle. Thank you very much for all your kind words. I'll keep on doing Meals on Wheels for as long as I'm around," he said. Getting to know the people on his route is a definite plus to volunteering, and it helps remind him to be thankful that he still has the mobility and freedom to get in a car and drive where he wants to go, Mr. Brock said. Mr. Brock is originally from New Jersey and moved to Vero Beach for the beautiful weather and landscape and enjoys it regularly by playing tennis with friends. The Senior Resource Association organizes 1,500 M eals on Wheels deliveries w eekly, not counting the meals that are served at congregate sites like St. Francis M anor or By the River, said C arrie Biggers, director of development for the Senior R esource Association. Each hot meal costs $5.50 and comes with friendly hellos and conversation by incredible volunteers like Mr. Brock, she said. The program is primarily funded by grants from the Area Agency on Aging, Palm B each/Treasure Coast and the United Way of Indian River County. Demand for the program far exceeds the dollars available, a press r elease said.

F loat-On has been in business for almost 45 year and been in Indian River C ounty since 1999. Ralph P oppell, former state representative, is the company's CEO and his son Tim Poppell is the company president, a press release said. F loat-On plans to hire 45 new workers over the next three years, and the employees will be helping to boost production of existing product, but also to create a new, yet unannounced, product line in early 2014. The changes will also facilitate a need for physically growing the company facility and equipment line. M anufacturing is one of eight broad categories the county has identified as a target industry. Other categories include clean energy, life sciences, information technology, aviation/aerospace, financial/professional services, arts, entertainment and r ecreation and emerging technologies. As with all county-awarded jobs grants, there are benchmarks the companies must meet before the checks are written, Ms. C aseltine said. They must create at least five jobs, the jobs must be at least 75 percent of the current Indian River C ounty average wage, which right now is $34,119, and they must have the jobs for a certain period of time," she said. The chamber's economic development team is working with a couple of other companies interested in applying for the jobs grants next year, one of which is another manufacturing company.

"C ooking is the leading cause of home fires, and as people are cooking, entertaining, and stringing lights this holiday season, we're urging that they take safety measures to ensure that their homes and loved ones are safe from the threat of fire," said Carlos Castillo, R egional Disaster Program Officer. Christmas Day, Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving are the top three days for cooking fires, according to the National Fire Prevention Association. Nationally, the Red Cross responds to a disaster on average every eight minutes, and the vast majority of them are home fires. The Red Cross has some simple steps everyone can follow to prevent home fires around the holidays: H oliday Entertaining T est your smoke alarms. Check food regularly while cooking and r emain in the home while cooking. Use a timer as a r eminder that the stove or ov en is on. E nforce a "kid-free z one" in the cooking area and make children stay at least three feet away from the stove. K eep anything that can catch fire away from the stove, oven or any appliance in the kitchen that generates heat. Clean cooking surfaces on a regular basis to prevent grease buildup. P urchase a fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen. Contact the local fire department to receive training on the proper use of extinguishers. H oliday Decorating Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. K eep children, pets and decorations away from lit candles. K eep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet. R eplace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screwin bulbs. Read manufacturer's instructions for the number of LED strands to connect. Some strings of lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.

What's the big deal?I don't know why there's such an issue made with people saying "happy holidays" to one another. How in the world is that offensive? Do those who are up in arms about not hearing "Merry Christmas" really that darn self-centered and shallow that they are making Tshirts, taking to the airwaves and demanding that they are told one thing instead of another? How about they should just be happy their grumpy rump is told to be happy, merry or whatever the case may be. Who cares... is the "season" really about the greeting or is about being kind to one another? It's so sad.What's in a word?Let's keep Christ in Christmas.Happy holidays?B usiness plays a major role in determining the direction of a nation. At Christmas time, we are all too often greeted by "Happy Holidays." But, we can push back using our purchasing power. The next time we hear this politically correct nonsense, we are out-of-here. We don't have to accept it. What is marriage equality?Does marriage equality include brother and sister, or mother and son or father and daughter? And what about my dog? Do leftists believe I have the right to marry my Fido?Ignorance aboundsAfter reading all the rants that are aimed toward the r ecipients of welfare, it's quite obvious that ignorance is everywhere. Why doesn't this idiot just move? Find that r epublican utopia with no crime, no welfare, educated souls who feel the same way you do. Well, never mind the educated part... it's obvious you fell short of a full education. If you did have one, you'd understand a little more about "your" society. God help you if you fall on hard times and lose a job or have to bow your head for help. There has to be something more important to take up the valuable space in the paper like, a cartoon or a Sudoku puzzle. W elfare is child slaveryW ell, kudos to those who have helped suppress the violence in the area. However, has anyone taken notice of the police blotter? It's a half-page young adults being arrested for dealing drugs. Now, this is just speculation but I'm betting that some of these kids come from welfare homes where the kids had no family guidance, but a young parent who had multiple kids just to get a welfare check. Now they're grown up and have a lack of education because their parents had no education. And all of this is brought to you from the federal government. Yes, many people I talk to, where ever I go can't stand this: when a young woman has a kid and she never even went to school, and then she has another, is most definitely wrong. Welfare should have been fixed as well but not by our current president because he wants socialism. I heard a local politician, a democrat, make the most sense by telling people to quit relying on the government so much. Well here's an idea: with these young kids that get busted for repeat offenses arrest the parents too for child neglect. They neglected to discipline the kid or kids that they had. Hold the kid and the parent accountable for the crime. Fort Pierce is a nice place but has a long way to go. People want jobs here, but they need to clean up the neighborhoods. S hame on them for just accepting the government as their only recourse. There's nothing someone can't attain in life to better themselves, they just have to apply themselves. Go to a park where there's wildlife and you'll see signs posted that say, "Don't feed the animals." Why? Because they become dependent on being fed. And, just like welfare recipients, they become dependent on the government to take care of them. H aving and using kids to create an income is slavery. Thanks for voting for ObamaI would just like to thank all those from the treasure coast who voted for Obama. With the mentality that he would deliver you a much better life, now you have a deficit which is off the charts and a European nation that can't stand us, all brought to you by the people who want something for nothing. So much for your socialization... Here's an idea: take care of your own selves, create your own destiny by way of getting an education, not have more babies to be on welfare and creating more poverty. Heck most of you can't read. By the way instead of sending the country further into the toilet, do those of us a favor that value genuine hard work: don't vote if you don't know what you're really voting for. If you're just seeing what you can get out of other people, go jump in lake. I guess I had to keep it clean. Yes, I would really like to see all these young single mothers take care of themselves and not at the expense of others. Eliminate socialism. There are many people who became wealthy due to learning and creating and it wasn't from welfare. Back to the snowbirdsI must admit that many of the so-called citizens that call themselves southerners and true Floridians should r ead a bit better. You see, Florida was never one of the 13 colonies, so unless everyone who lives here is true N ative American, your heritage is all from the so-called snowbirds. It was the influx of northerners in the late 1800s who came here as tourists and then decided to stay and start businesses and pump money into the F lorida region. So before you start bad mouthing snowbirds, look to your history and learn something besides blaming your own faults on the northerners. When the snowbirds go home it's still is the so called southerners that are rude, believe traffic laws don't apply to them and complain when they close up their shop. Yet when was the last time you passed the big box stores and patronized those mom and pop shops that built Florida, the so called state you call home? Personally, I have y et to see a southerner that can work as hard as a northerner or as quick. Don't take me wrong, I have met a few fine people from the so-called south. But otherwise, a six-pack and thinking my vehicle is in the next race at Daytona just doesn't appeal to me. Case in point if not for the Northerners Florida would still be a swampland.No amnestyW ith Obamacare threatening to increase prices for all of us, it is unbelievable that some politicians still want to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. If we allow 11 or 12 million illegals to stay here, the cost would be astronomical, not just for health care, but for food stamps, public housing, education, and a long list of other taxpayer provided benefits. Fortunately, Marco Rubio has finally changed his mind and come to his senses. The term "earned path to citizenship" is foolish code for undeserved amnesty. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. The internet is down." It 's a complaint I hear often and every time someone says that to me I can't help but picture in my mind computers all over the world stopped in their tracks and displaying some type of error. Email messages no longer bouncing from node to node, Netflix accounts standing still with an hourglass spinning and turning, Google searches stalled and coming up empty. What exactly do you mean the internet is down"? I ask (usually while looking at a fully functioning internet connection at my desk). I know that people count on the internet for so much but when one facet off the internet stops working does it really mean that the whole internet is "d ow n "? No, not quite. I imagine it's kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal or a message saying that the number you are trying to reach is not available. Does that mean the phone system is down? No it's just a problem connecting to that phone number. Or another way to look at it is seeing a "Road Closed" sign at the end of the street. Does that mean the entire highway system is down? No, not quite. When someone calls me and says that the internet is down I know I have to do some question asking to determine exactly what they mean by that statement. J ust what problem do they have exactly to lead them to believe that the internet is "down"? M ost of the time, after asking a few simple questions and listening closely to the answers, the problem is one website that the caller is trying to access. They click a shortcut and the hourglass starts to twirl until it finally "times out" and displays an error message that the page cannot be displayed but does this mean that the internet is really down? I usually ask them to try accessing another site if they were trying to access Y ahoo.com and got that message I ask them to try Google. If they were trying to access Google then I ask them to try Yahoo. Usually they are unable to access one page but are able to access the other showing clearly that the internet is indeed "up." Or maybe it's an email problem they try to access email but get an error message. Sure I know it's frustrating when something people rely on every day suddenly stops working but to declare that the "internet is down" goes a little overboard as the problem is usually not as severe. So how does one figure out what is really going on? W ell there are a lot of tools and techniques out there that can be used to discover the extent of the problem and one of my favorite tools can be used to check the status of a particular site and that tool is called "D o wnForEveryoneOrJ ustMe.com." The idea behind the site is that it is sometimes difficult to determine if a problem accessing a particular web address is a "local" problem (that is a problem with the "local" computer from which you are trying to access the site) or a problem with the web address you are trying to r each. When you have a problem accessing a web address try going to www. DownF orEveryoneOrJustMe.com. If the site opens then you know right off the bat that the internet is not "down" but rather you are having a problem accessing a site (kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal). If DownF orEveryoneOrJustMe.com does open then type in the w eb address you are trying to reach and hit enter, DownForEveryoneOrJ ustMe.com will try to access that site and display either "It's just you" if the site is able to access the site or it will display "It's not just y ou" if it can't access theHelp, the internet is broken!

TREASURE COAST When residents wash their clothes at Sunshine Laundries this holiday season, they may be doing more than getting their clothes clean. S unshine Laundries is donating 25 percent of the gross proceeds through Christmas from a select washer at their five attended laundromats to a local charity. I ndian River Habitat for H umanity is the charity benefiting from the washes at the Vero Beach location, 485 21st Street, on Miracle M ile in the Treasure Coast P laza. The Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County will receive the funds generated at the three Fort Pierce locations: 2504 S. U.S.1, 1606 Orange Ave., and in the K-Mart Plaza at 2049 S. U.S. 1; as well as at the Port St. L ucie location at 1185 S.E. Po rt S t. Lucie Blvd. The charities were selected by the attendants at each location. "I thought this was a unique way to raise money for the local causes that my employees care about, and the only thing our customers have to do is use the designated washer," said T om Rhodes, owner of the Tr easure Coast locations of S unshine Laundries. The hours vary at each location, but all are open seven days a week and WiFi is available at many of the laundromats.

This month, his designs are featured at the Main St r eet Vero Beach Studios and Gallery in downtown Ve ro B each, and the shelves are full of ovalshaped Shaker nesting boxes of all sizes, as well as wooden clocks, restored post office box doors, wooden pens and wooden baskets, all produced by Mr. Remole as part of Da r mikk Designs. The Shakers were a religious sect that came to No r th America from England. The first recorded S haker settlement was in N ew York in 1776. Their worship style was different than other Protestant groups, and involved singing, shouting and violent trembling in their fervor and communication with God, earning them the nickname "Shaking Q uakers." The Shakers believed in hard work and living separ ately from the "world's people" and as a result, many created their own furnishings and tools, including the iconic ovalshaped boxes, Mr. Remole said. Originally, the boxes we re used as storage for seeds, spices, sewing equipment or other small items or as working boxes with handles for thing such as heavy nails.

"I t takes seven days from start to finish to make one box, it doesn't matter what size," Mr. Remole said. In the box-making process, sheets of wood are soaked and boiled in water to become pliable. "M other Nature tells me which way it is supposed to curl," Mr. Remole said. Once the wood is shaped, it is placed into a mold where it will dry for three or four days. "O nce it's dry, that's when I put in the elbow grease," The traditional Shaker process only uses wooden pegs or copper nail pegs to hold the wood pieces together, and if everything is done correctly, when raised to the light, no light should shine through the seams. And it's strong. You can stand on it and it won't break," Mr. Remole said. S ome of the boxes on display at the gallery are handdyed to colors that Shakers would have used.

The Indian River Lagoon and its tributaries have one of the most diverse environments in North America. In addition to seeing wonderful scenery, including multiple bird species, fish rising to the water surface, and va r ious kinds of native vegetation, many lucky boaters spot dolphins, manatees, and alligators in their natur al habitat. Boating is the best way to explore this environment in a close-up way. The ELC provides several options for those who want to experience a water-based program: aboard a comfortable pontoon boat, in a canoe or in a kayak. People are urged to pick those that best meet their capabilities and interests. ELC's pontoon boat, r eferred by many as a floating classroom because of the educational experience, sails into the Pelican Island N ational Wildlife Refuge. S eparate morning and afternoon trips give participants the opportunity to see the bird species that nest, rest, and feed at Pelican Island. The onboard guide identifies the species encountered, discusses the ecology of the Lagoon, and how its health can be restored with personal actions. Brown and white pelicans, egret, ibis, kingfishers, and herons are often on the island or nearby Migrating birds gather on the mangrove islands, and manatees and dolphins may be seen throughout the trip. The fee for this excursion is $25 per adult and $10 per child ($2 less for members and their children) C anoe excursions, led by knowledgeable guides, explore "off the beaten path" canoe trails where water birds and mangrove tree crabs abound. Sometimes dolphins and manatees are seen close by the canoe. The guide will explain ways that participants can positively impact the ecology of the Indian River Lagoon. The fee, including canoe rental and gear, is $15 per adult and $7 per child ($3 less for members and their children). T wo kayaking excursions are offered by the ELC for both experienced kayakers and beginners. Instruction is included for beginning paddlers. One trip explores the shallow waters around the ELC's Wabasso Island campus to see beautiful views of the Indian River Lagoon not accessible from motor boats. The cost, including kayak rental and gear, is only $30 per adult ($28 per member) and $25 per child ($23 per member's child). The second kayak trip explores the St. Sebastian River providing a glimpse of one of the few r emaining undeveloped coastal rivers in Florida. S ightings during this junglelike adventure may include manatees, alligators, ospreys, and eagles. The fee for each kayak excursion is $30 per adult ($28 per member), and $25 per child ($23 per member's child) The schedule of the various boating excursions is available on ELC's web site, www.DiscoverELC.org. R eservations, as well as schedule and information inquiries, may be made by calling the ELC at (772) 5895050, Ext. 114.

Once the holiday season comes to a close, many of us will have an abundance of holiday plants to nurture for an entire year so we can enjoy them again next year. One of the most popular gifts of the holiday season are Amaryllis bulbs. Amaryllis bulbs are r elatively easy to take of. If y ou give them adequate water and bright light they should bloom in about six we eks. The best way to water is to keep the plants evenly moist. Do not water so much that the plants are sitting in standing water. K eep the plants on a windowsill or on a protected porch for the best results. If y our bulbs are too small in size, you may have to wait till next year before you get blooms to form. If y ou received a Norfolk Pine as a gift or bought one for yourself, you can successfully grow them indoors. As a matter of fact, I recommend that you either grow them indoors or plant them in a container. I do not recommend planting them outdoors. These trees do not fare well in hurricane force winds and they grow extremely large. W ith that said, Norfolk Pines will do extremely w ell in an indoor environment as long as there is ample light. Position your plant near a window sill so it will receive a bit of sun daily. These plants will do best if they are watered on a regular schedule. Keep the plants evenly moist but not dripping wet. Do not allow the plants to sit in standing water. Norfolk Pines also enjoy a humid environment so if the plant is indoors, you may find it beneficial to lightly mist the plant from time to time to help increase the humidity around the plant. I mproper watering can r esult in needle loss that will not regenerate itself. In addition, never try to prune the tree to shape it. The only pruning that should be done on this plant is for basic maintenance such as trimming off dead or yellow lower branches. In the past I have discussed about how to choose and nurture P oinsettia plants during the holidays. These delicate plants can also be planted outdoors when the season is over. F irst, choose a location that is sheltered away from strong winds and the full direct rays of the summer sun. Also, choose an area where you can control the artificial light at night so y ou can get your plants to bloom next season with minimal effort. Use a good quality potting mix to place y our plants in the ground and be sure it is a welldrained location. It might be wise to repot your plant in a large pot until all danger of frost and cold w eather has past. March would be a great transition month to place your prize in the ground. Once the plant is planted and established, be sure to trim off all the old red bracts. Y ou will need to do this in order to get blooms next season. No w comes the tricky part. Starting around No vember or sooner, the plant is going to need long nights in order to rebloom. During this twomonth period you will need to eliminate as much as possible all signs of artificial lighting at night. K eep the area as dark as possible. This is the key to getting new blooms for the holidays. One of the biggest problems you might encounter with a poinsettia plant is root rot. Often times, you will see poinsettia plants wilting as if they we re not watered in days. Y ou go to check the soil and it is still moist. So why is the plant wilting? Actually, the poinsettia most likely has a root fungus or disease that is preventing the plant from taking on water. That explains the wilted condition. This is usually caused from the plant being in soil that overly moist. This condition will almost always lead to a dead plant. In addition, you must also keep watchful eye out for whiteflies. Treat them at the very first indication with Orthenex. With a little luck and some skill, you should be rewarded with some great holiday color in your garden next season.

Below: Nearly three-dozen headdresses made in Mexico costing more than $125 each were used in Thursday's celebration. Cliff Partlow staff photographer Merry Christmas! H appy Hanukkah! (Y es, I know it's late.) H appy Kwanzaa! Whatever y our religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season. This is a great time of year. It 's a time for families and friends to be together... a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at y our table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women make every day. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how much you love them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. T imes may be tough, but there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. At this time of year we all tend to be more humane, kind and caring. My wish is that we would keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I now present you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.

ples of traditional pioneer foods, including sunbrewed iced tea, honey, oysters and yes, swamp cabbage. I t s serendipitous that we will be able to have the first one on Paul Kroegels 150th birthday and be able to celebrate his legacy and the legacy of Sebastian pioneers, Mr. Lowry said. P aul Kroegel stands tall in the annals of Sebastian history and U.S. history as a German immigrant who fought to protect the nesting birds of the area from poachers and was made the nations first national wildlife refuge manager by Pr esident Theodore Roosevelt. The area he defended is now known as Pelican I sland National Wildlife R efuge and hold the distinction of being the first national wildlife refuge in the country, but despite this, many people in the area hear the names Paul Kroegel and Pelican I sland and still have no idea of the history of it all, said Mr. Lowry. I v e been telling the story of Paul Kroegel my entire career and his legacy is one we have to educate people about. He was a very significant conservationist, Mr. Lowry said. W e want to reconnect the city of Sebastian with the r efuge and want Germany to re cognize its son and the great impact he had here, and we want to support local businesses with this festival, he said. The mayor of Mr. Kroegels hometown, Chemnitz, Germany, as well as other representatives from Germany will attend and participate in the festivities, Mr. Lowry said. Local businesses will participate by donating food items and participate in the scavenger hunts, Mr. Lowry said. Dur ing the festival, Janice Kroegel Timinski, Mr. Kroegels granddaughter, will pull up a rocking chair and share stories about her grandfather, who died in 1948. H is great-grandson, Tim T iminski, owner of Kroegel H omestead Produce on U.S. 1 in Sebastian, was involved in developing the festival and is one of the financial underwriters of the event. The Sembler family, another Sebastian pioneer family, has has been in the fishing business since the early 1900s and is also helping to cover costs for the event, Mr. Lowry said. W e hope that this is a very unique and memorable event, unlike the other festiv als we already have in the area. We think its very exciting for Sebastian, Mr. Lowry said.

A quaculture is the farming of aquatic animals and plants. Aquaculture products in Florida are worth about $69 million, according to the 2012 USDA and F lorida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. In F lorida, most clams consumed are grown by the shellfish farmer, also known as an aquaculturist. The aquaculturist produces about 50 percent of all the seafood consumed globally; and with consumer demand for seafood increasing, the need for aquaculturists is also increasing. Graduates of the Aquaculture program typically find jobs locally and several have started their own aquaculture business. Last semester, students enrolled in the Principals of M olluscan Aquaculture class planted hard-clam nursery seed, which is about the size of a small fingernail. Eight weeks later, the class harvested and sieved the clams to separate by size. After planting, the seeded clams need approximately 12-16 months to grow large enough for the market. This Spring, three aquaculture classes will be offered at the HBOI-FAU campus in Fort Pierce. The three classes are: Principles of Crustacean Aquaculture (FAS2150), Water Quality, S ystems and Operations (FAS2360), and Aquatic Animal Health Management (FAS2252). The classes will meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Spring registration is now underway.

instead to celebrate his birthday and to thank him for his volunteerism. H is eyes grew misty and his voice faltered as he read the kind words of the note signed by the office staff and kitchen volunteers. I cant believe you all pulled this on me, Mr. Br ock said with a chuckle. Thank you very much for all your kind words. Ill keep on doing Meals on Wheels for as long as Im around, he said. Getting to know the people on his route is a definite plus to volunteering, and it helps remind him to be thankful that he still has the mobility and freedom to get in a car and drive where he wants to go, Mr. Brock said. Mr. Brock is originally from New Jersey and moved to Vero Beach for the beautiful weather and landscape and enjoys it regularly by playing tennis with friends. The Senior Resource Association organizes 1,500 M eals on Wheels deliveries w eekly, not counting the meals that are served at congregate sites like St. Francis M anor or By the River, said C arrie Biggers, director of development for the Senior R esource Association. Each hot meal costs $5.50 and comes with friendly hellos and conversation by incredible volunteers like Mr. Brock, she said. The program is primarily funded by grants from the Area Agency on Aging, Palm B each/Treasure Coast and the United Way of Indian River County. Demand for the program far exceeds the dollars available, a press r elease said.

Ralph P oppell, former state representative, is the companys CEO and his son Tim Poppell is the company president, a press release said. F loat-On plans to hire 45 new workers over the next three years, and the employees will be helping to boost production of existing product, but also to create a new, yet unannounced, product line in early 2014. The changes will also facilitate a need for physically growing the company facility and equipment line. M anufacturing is one of eight broad categories the county has identified as a target industry. Other categories include clean energy, life sciences, information technology, aviation/aerospace, financial/professional services, arts, entertainment and r ecreation and emerging technologies. As with all county-awarded jobs grants, there are benchmarks the companies must meet before the checks are written, Ms. C aseltine said. They must create at least five jobs, the jobs must be at least 75 percent of the current Indian River C ounty average wage, which right now is $34,119, and they must have the jobs for a certain period of time, she said. The chambers economic development team is working with a couple of other companies interested in applying for the jobs grants next year, one of which is another manufacturing company.

C ooking is the leading cause of home fires, and as people are cooking, entertaining, and stringing lights this holiday season, were urging that they take safety measures to ensure that their homes and loved ones are safe from the threat of fire, said Carlos Castillo, R egional Disaster Program Officer. Christmas Day, Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving are the top three days for cooking fires, according to the National Fire Prevention Association. Nationally, the Red Cross responds to a disaster on average every eight minutes, and the vast majority of them are home fires. The Red Cross has some simple steps everyone can follow to prevent home fires around the holidays: H oliday Entertaining T est your smoke alarms. Check food regularly while cooking and r emain in the home while cooking. Use a timer as a r eminder that the stove or ov en is on. E nforce a kid-free z one in the cooking area and make children stay at least three feet away from the stove. K eep anything that can catch fire away from the stove, oven or any appliance in the kitchen that generates heat. Clean cooking surfaces on a regular basis to prevent grease buildup. P urchase a fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen. Contact the local fire department to receive training on the proper use of extinguishers. H oliday Decorating Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. K eep children, pets and decorations away from lit candles. K eep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet. R eplace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screwin bulbs. Read manufacturers instructions for the number of LED strands to connect. Some strings of lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. U se clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. K eep decorations away from windows and doors. P eople should also download the free American Red Cross First Aid app, which provides instant access to information on handling the most common first aid emergencies. The apps can be downloaded from the A pple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross or by visiting re dcross.org/mobileapps. P eople can test their knowledge on how to prevent home fires by taking the Fire Safety Quiz and can learn more about fire prevention by visiting redcross.org.F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com

Whats the big deal?I dont know why theres such an issue made with people saying happy holidays to one another. How in the world is that offensive? Do those who are up in arms about not hearing Merry Christmas really that darn self-centered and shallow that they are making Tshirts, taking to the airwaves and demanding that they are told one thing instead of another? How about they should just be happy their grumpy rump is told to be happy, merry or whatever the case may be. Who cares... is the season really about the greeting or is about being kind to one another? Its so sad.Whats in a word?Let's keep Christ in Christmas.Happy holidays?B usiness plays a major role in determining the direction of a nation. At Christmas time, we are all too often greeted by "Happy Holidays." But, we can push back using our purchasing power. The next time we hear this politically correct nonsense, we are out-of-here. We don't have to accept it. What is marriage equality?Does marriage equality include brother and sister, or mother and son or father and daughter? And what about my dog? Do leftists believe I have the right to marry my Fido?Ignorance aboundsAfter reading all the rants that are aimed toward the r ecipients of welfare, its quite obvious that ignorance is everywhere. Why doesnt this idiot just move? Find that r epublican utopia with no crime, no welfare, educated souls who feel the same way you do. Well, never mind the educated part... its obvious you fell short of a full education. If you did have one, youd understand a little more about your society. God help you if you fall on hard times and lose a job or have to bow your head for help. There has to be something more important to take up the valuable space in the paper like, a cartoon or a Sudoku puzzle. W elfare is child slaveryW ell, kudos to those who have helped suppress the violence in the area. However, has anyone taken notice of the police blotter? Its a half-page young adults being arrested for dealing drugs. Now, this is just speculation but Im betting that some of these kids come from welfare homes where the kids had no family guidance, but a young parent who had multiple kids just to get a welfare check. Now theyre grown up and have a lack of education because their parents had no education. And all of this is brought to you from the federal government. Yes, many people I talk to, where ever I go cant stand this: when a young woman has a kid and she never even went to school, and then she has another, is most definitely wrong. Welfare should have been fixed as well but not by our current president because he wants socialism. I heard a local politician, a democrat, make the most sense by telling people to quit relying on the government so much. Well heres an idea: with these young kids that get busted for repeat offenses arrest the parents too for child neglect. They neglected to discipline the kid or kids that they had. Hold the kid and the parent accountable for the crime. Fort Pierce is a nice place but has a long way to go. People want jobs here, but they need to clean up the neighborhoods. S hame on them for just accepting the government as their only recourse. Theres nothing someone cant attain in life to better themselves, they just have to apply themselves. Go to a park where theres wildlife and you'll see signs posted that say, "Dont feed the animals." Why? Because they become dependent on being fed. And, just like welfare recipients, they become dependent on the government to take care of them. H aving and using kids to create an income is slavery. Thanks for voting for ObamaI would just like to thank all those from the treasure coast who voted for Obama. With the mentality that he would deliver you a much better life, now you have a deficit which is off the charts and a European nation that cant stand us, all brought to you by the people who want something for nothing. So much for your socialization... Heres an idea: take care of your own selves, create your own destiny by way of getting an education, not have more babies to be on welfare and creating more poverty. Heck most of you cant read. By the way instead of sending the country further into the toilet, do those of us a favor that value genuine hard work: dont vote if you dont know what youre really voting for. If youre just seeing what you can get out of other people, go jump in lake. I guess I had to keep it clean. Yes, I would really like to see all these young single mothers take care of themselves and not at the expense of others. Eliminate socialism. There are many people who became wealthy due to learning and creating and it wasnt from welfare. Back to the snowbirdsI must admit that many of the so-called citizens that call themselves southerners and true Floridians should r ead a bit better. You see, Florida was never one of the 13 colonies, so unless everyone who lives here is true N ative American, your heritage is all from the so-called snowbirds. It was the influx of northerners in the late 1800s who came here as tourists and then decided to stay and start businesses and pump money into the F lorida region. So before you start bad mouthing snowbirds, look to your history and learn something besides blaming your own faults on the northerners. When the snowbirds go home its still is the so called southerners that are rude, believe traffic laws don't apply to them and complain when they close up their shop. Yet when was the last time you passed the big box stores and patronized those mom and pop shops that built Florida, the so called state you call home? Personally, I have y et to see a southerner that can work as hard as a northerner or as quick. Don't take me wrong, I have met a few fine people from the so-called south. But otherwise, a six-pack and thinking my vehicle is in the next race at Daytona just doesn't appeal to me. Case in point if not for the Northerners Florida would still be a swampland.No amnestyW ith Obamacare threatening to increase prices for all of us, it is unbelievable that some politicians still want to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. If we allow 11 or 12 million illegals to stay here, the cost would be astronomical, not just for health care, but for food stamps, public housing, education, and a long list of other taxpayer provided benefits. Fortunately, Marco Rubio has finally changed his mind and come to his senses. The term "earned path to citizenship" is foolish code for undeserved amnesty. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. The internet is down. It s a complaint I hear often and every time someone says that to me I cant help but picture in my mind computers all over the world stopped in their tracks and displaying some type of error. Email messages no longer bouncing from node to node, Netflix accounts standing still with an hourglass spinning and turning, Google searches stalled and coming up empty. What exactly do you mean the internet is down? I ask (usually while looking at a fully functioning internet connection at my desk). I know that people count on the internet for so much but when one facet off the internet stops working does it really mean that the whole internet is d own ? No, not quite. I imagine its kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal or a message saying that the number you are trying to reach is not available. Does that mean the phone system is down? No its just a problem connecting to that phone number. Or another way to look at it is seeing a Road Closed sign at the end of the street. Does that mean the entire highway system is down? No, not quite. When someone calls me and says that the internet is down I know I have to do some question asking to determine exactly what they mean by that statement. J ust what problem do they have exactly to lead them to believe that the internet is down? M ost of the time, after asking a few simple questions and listening closely to the answers, the problem is one website that the caller is trying to access. They click a shortcut and the hourglass starts to twirl until it finally times out and displays an error message that the page cannot be displayed but does this mean that the internet is really down? I usually ask them to try accessing another site if they were trying to access Y ahoo.com and got that message I ask them to try Google. If they were trying to access Google then I ask them to try Yahoo. Usually they are unable to access one page but are able to access the other showing clearly that the internet is indeed up. Or maybe its an email problem they try to access email but get an error message. Sure I know its frustrating when something people rely on every day suddenly stops working but to declare that the internet is down goes a little overboard as the problem is usually not as severe. So how does one figure out what is really going on? W ell there are a lot of tools and techniques out there that can be used to discover the extent of the problem and one of my favorite tools can be used to check the status of a particular site and that tool is called Do wnForEveryoneOrJ ustMe.com. The idea behind the site is that it is sometimes difficult to determine if a problem accessing a particular web address is a local problem (that is a problem with the local computer from which you are trying to access the site) or a problem with the web address you are trying to r each. When you have a problem accessing a web address try going to www. DownF orEveryoneOrJustMe.com. If the site opens then you know right off the bat that the internet is not down but rather you are having a problem accessing a site (kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal). If DownF orEveryoneOrJustMe.com does open then type in the w eb address you are trying to reach and hit enter, DownForEveryoneOrJ ustMe.com will try to access that site and display either Its just you if the site is able to access the site or it will display Its not just y ou if it cant access theHelp, the internet is broken!

TREASURE COAST When residents wash their clothes at Sunshine Laundries this holiday season, they may be doing more than getting their clothes clean. S unshine Laundries is donating 25 percent of the gross proceeds through Christmas from a select washer at their five attended laundromats to a local charity. I ndian River Habitat for H umanity is the charity benefiting from the washes at the Vero Beach location, 485 21st Street, on Miracle M ile in the Treasure Coast P laza. The Boys and Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County will receive the funds generated at the three Fort Pierce locations: 2504 S. U.S.1, 1606 Orange Ave., and in the K-Mart Plaza at 2049 S. U.S. 1; as well as at the Port St. L ucie location at 1185 S.E. Po rt S t. Lucie Blvd. The charities were selected by the attendants at each location. I thought this was a unique way to raise money for the local causes that my employees care about, and the only thing our customers have to do is use the designated washer, said T om Rhodes, owner of the Tr easure Coast locations of S unshine Laundries. The hours vary at each location, but all are open seven days a week and WiFi is available at many of the laundromats.

Dur ing the week, Darrell P. R emole is the risk management and employee benefits manager for the I ndian River County school district, but on the w eekends, he is a wood crafter, using a centuriesold method of creating beautiful, yet simple and functional boxes in his studio. Cherry, maple, birdseye and a wide variety of exotic woods are featured in Mr. Re moles boxes. He learned the traditional S haker technique from master box worker John W ilson at the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in H arrodsburg, Ky., and has honed his craft to the point where his boxes have been sold in the very gift ship he first became interested in making Shaker boxes. This month, his designs are featured at the Main Str eet Vero Beach Studios and Gallery in downtown Ve ro Beach, and the shelves are full of ovalshaped Shaker nesting boxes of all sizes, as well as wooden clocks, restored post office box doors, wooden pens and wooden baskets, all produced by Mr. Remole as part of Dar mikk Designs. The Shakers were a religious sect that came to Nor th America from England. The first recorded S haker settlement was in N ew York in 1776. Their worship style was different than other Protestant groups, and involved singing, shouting and violent trembling in their fervor and communication with God, earning them the nickname Shaking Q uakers. The Shakers believed in hard work and living separ ately from the worlds people and as a result, many created their own furnishings and tools, including the iconic ovalshaped boxes, Mr. Remole said. Originally, the boxes we re used as storage for seeds, spices, sewing equipment or other small items or as working boxes with handles for thing such as heavy nails.

I t takes seven days from start to finish to make one box, it doesnt matter what size, Mr. Remole said. In the box-making process, sheets of wood are soaked and boiled in water to become pliable. M other Nature tells me which way it is supposed to curl, Mr. Remole said. Once the wood is shaped, it is placed into a mold where it will dry for three or four days. O nce its dry, thats when I put in the elbow grease, The traditional Shaker process only uses wooden pegs or copper nail pegs to hold the wood pieces together, and if everything is done correctly, when raised to the light, no light should shine through the seams. And its strong. You can stand on it and it wont break, Mr. Remole said. S ome of the boxes on display at the gallery are handdyed to colors that Shakers would have used. All of his items are signed and numbered.

The Indian River Lagoon and its tributaries have one of the most diverse environments in North America. In addition to seeing wonderful scenery, including multiple bird species, fish rising to the water surface, and va r ious kinds of native vegetation, many lucky boaters spot dolphins, manatees, and alligators in their natur al habitat. Boating is the best way to explore this environment in a close-up way. The ELC provides several options for those who want to experience a water-based program: aboard a comfortable pontoon boat, in a canoe or in a kayak. People are urged to pick those that best meet their capabilities and interests. ELCs pontoon boat, r eferred by many as a floating classroom because of the educational experience, sails into the Pelican Island N ational Wildlife Refuge. S eparate morning and afternoon trips give participants the opportunity to see the bird species that nest, rest, and feed at Pelican Island. The onboard guide identifies the species encountered, discusses the ecology of the Lagoon, and how its health can be restored with personal actions. Brown and white pelicans, egret, ibis, kingfishers, and herons are often on the island or nearby Migrating birds gather on the mangrove islands, and manatees and dolphins may be seen throughout the trip.

Once the holiday season comes to a close, many of us will have an abundance of holiday plants to nurture for an entire year so we can enjoy them again next year. One of the most popular gifts of the holiday season are Amaryllis bulbs. Amaryllis bulbs are r elatively easy to take of. If y ou give them adequate water and bright light they should bloom in about six we eks. The best way to water is to keep the plants evenly moist. Do not water so much that the plants are sitting in standing water. K eep the plants on a windowsill or on a protected porch for the best results. If y our bulbs are too small in size, you may have to wait till next year before you get blooms to form. If you received a Norfolk Pine as a gift or bought one for yourself, you can successfully grow them indoors. As a matter of fact, I recommend that you either grow them indoors or plant them in a container. I do not recommend planting them outdoors. These trees do not fare well in hurricane force winds and they grow extremely large. W ith that said, Norfolk Pines will do extremely w ell in an indoor environment as long as there is ample light. Position your plant near a window sill so it will receive a bit of sun daily. These plants will do best if they are watered on a regular schedule. Keep the plants evenly moist but not dripping wet. Do not allow the plants to sit in standing water. Norfolk Pines also enjoy a humid environment so if the plant is indoors, you may find it beneficial to lightly mist the plant from time to time to help increase the humidity around the plant. I mproper watering can r esult in needle loss that will not regenerate itself. In addition, never try to prune the tree to shape it. The only pruning that should be done on this plant is for basic maintenance such as trimming off dead or yellow lower branches. In the past I have discussed about how to choose and nurture P oinsettia plants during the holidays. These delicate plants can also be planted outdoors when the season is over. F irst, choose a location that is sheltered away from strong winds and the full direct rays of the summer sun. Also, choose an area where you can control the artificial light at night so y ou can get your plants to bloom next season with minimal effort. Use a good quality potting mix to place y our plants in the ground and be sure it is a welldrained location. It might be wise to repot your plant in a large pot until all danger of frost and cold w eather has past. March would be a great transition month to place your prize in the ground. Once the plant is planted and established, be sure to trim off all the old red bracts. Y ou will need to do this in order to get blooms next season. Now comes the tricky part. Starting around November or sooner, the plant is going to need long nights in order to rebloom. During this twomonth period you will need to eliminate as much as possible all signs of artificial lighting at night. K eep the area as dark as possible. This is the key to getting new blooms for the holidays. One of the biggest problems you might encounter with a poinsettia plant is root rot. Often times, you will see poinsettia plants wilting as if they we re not watered in days. Y ou go to check the soil and it is still moist. So why is the plant wilting? Actually, the poinsettia most likely has a root fungus or disease that is preventing the plant from taking on water. That explains the wilted condition. This is usually caused from the plant being in soil that overly moist. This condition will almost always lead to a dead plant. In addition, you must also keep watchful eye out for whiteflies. Treat them at the very first indication with Orthenex. With a little luck and some skill, you should be rewarded with some great holiday color in your garden next season.

(Y es, I know it's late.) H appy Kwanzaa! Whatever y our religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season. This is a great time of year. It s a time for families and friends to be together... a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at y our table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women make every day. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how much you love them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. T imes may be tough, but there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. At this time of year we all tend to be more humane, kind and caring. My wish is that we would keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I now present you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.
