Why? Well because I examine the contents of the different menus looking for the option that will most likely get me closer to my goal (while keeping in mind whatever it is Im trying to do). As an added bonus, just about every program out there that has pull down menus have Help listed as the last one to the right. So by the time I get to the last pull down menu I can always open that programs help file and do a search on what Im trying to do. The help file will then list all the topics that contain whatever words I searched on and from there I can usually figure COMP UTE T HISSEAN MCCARTHY SEBASTIAN RIVER AREA V ol. 11, No. 47www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Aug. 15, 2014 GARDENING 17Joe Zelenak offers advice on g rowing these delicate houseplants AFRICAN VIOLETS AERIAL ANTICSPhotos from the City of V ero Beach Recreation Departments 40th Annual Aerial Antics Circus ENTERTAINMENT13, 15 H EALTH3Dr. Larry Landsman explains how to keep the largest organ of your body safe and cancer free H EALTHY SKIN T wo battle for School Board District 1 INDIAN RIVER COUNTY The Indian River County School Board District 1 incumbent is being challenged for her seat during the upcoming Aug. 26 primary election.

out how to take the next step. Lets take a look at this in an example. Lets say Im writing my column with a typical word processing program and I wanted to make the next line that I type bold and larger. Lets also say that I only have a very basic understanding of computers. At this point I have two choices, I can stare at the screen with a blank expression and then call Bob (whos pretty good with computers) and ask him or, I can start looking around the screen for something that may help me reach my goal. As I move my mouse (and my eyes) around the screen I notice a couple of things; first at the top of the screen, above where the words are being typed, there are (often) rows pull down menus and buttons available. And, as I move my mouse slowly over the buttons, little boxes pop up telling me what each button does. When I click on the File option it opens (or pulls down) and I can see all of the commands that are available that have to do with Filing. As I move my mouse to the right, the File pull down menu closes and the Edit menu opens displaying all of the commands available for editing. Next the View pull down menu opens and then the Insert menu opens. As each menu opens I look at all the options available and for each one I ask myself does this option look like it will help me change my text to bold and larger? And as each menu does not present an option I go on to the next one eventually getting to the Format pull down menu. When Format opens, I see it lists B ullets and numbering Borders and shading and whats this? Font?? Hmmm. Let me think Im trying to change the formatting of my text and text is made up of fonts, Thinking I may be on the right track, I click the F onts option and a screen opens that allows me to change the characteristics of the type. Bingo! Exactly what I am looking for! It says I am typing in Times N ew Roman, Regular, Size 12. I change the specs to Times New Roman, Bold, Si ze 14, click OK and voila! My typing is now larger and darker. O k, so, that rather tame demonstration is just an example of how intuitive computing works; at no time did I ever get the urge to go get a book or call tech support for help, I kept in mind what I was trying to do and, after seeing what options were available, discovered the answer on my own. Instinctively. Now, I know what a lot of you are thinking; that the things you have trouble doing are far more complex than just changing the characteristics of text, how can this possibly help me? And to that I answer the lesson is not in how to change the font size, the lesson is where to go for your answers! N otice that the pull down menus I looked at were all within the program I was using. You should look at the menus and options available within the program where you are stuck. Also notice that each pull down menu is a category; all filing options are under F ile and we found our Font options under the Format pull down menu. That was no coincidence. I would have been very surprised to find the Fonts option under the File pull down menu but starting at File and moving to the r ight covers all the bases and rapidly gets you familiar with all the menus available.

The Never-Ending Storybook Project started a few months ago and is designed for students in the first grade through the sixth grade and fosters creativity, improves language skills and promotes collaboration, said Hollie M cDougall, project coordinator. There are three characters students can choose to write about, Kaia, a pink gorilla, Gorilla Ice, a white gorilla and G idget, a brown monkey. All three creatures are represented by a stuffed animal that students can check out of the library to take home for story inspiration, Ms. McDougall said. Each character also has a backstory with favorite activities, colors, food and songs from where students can take ideas for a story. Each story submission is about one paragraph long and can include art drawn by the students, or photos including the character. There are currently 21 submissions and all of the characters are currently checked out. The book has been a big hit this summer, Ms. McDougall said. To participate, children and parents must sign up and take a character kit home. If no character kit is available, a hold can be placed for a subsequent w eek. Character kits can be checked out for seven days with a library card and are not renewable. Students are given copies of the stories written to dateStudents write never-ending story at local libraryBy Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.com See ST ORY, page 3ComputeF rom page 1

upon checkout. As the submissions have come in, the pages have been added to a book that is on display in the childrens section of the Br ackett Library, Ms. McDougall said. W e re just going to kind of see how it goes, where the kids take the story. We dont have an official cut-off date for the story, she said. Pa rt of the fun of the project is seeing how the imagination of the child author develops into creative writing, including poems or stories. The neat thing is that this makes them want to write and be creative, and thats what we wanted with the project, Ms. McDougall said.

VERO BEACH The largest organ in the human body is the one that gets burned, bumped, bruised, weather-beaten and abused, and it shouldnt be taken for granted. The skin is the outer barrier protecting the rest of your body from the dangers of the outside world and deserves special care, the kind of care that comes from a professional dermatologist. Dr Larry Landsman of the Aesthetic Der matology Center of Vero Beach has more than 20 years of experience, and truly cares about the health of his patients. H is office provides the community with a wide array of dermatological treatments for promoting and maintaining healthy skin. S ome dermatologists use physician extenders, such as nurse practitioners, to perform procedures. But patients of Dr. Landsman can be reassured that all procedures, such as biopsies, skin-cancer surgeries or any cosmetic procedures, are only done by the doctor. P utting the patient first is important to us, Dr Landsman said. P atients are treated as individuals and receive quality care. Were able to see people in a timely manner and if they have an unexpected emergency come up, we work hard to fit them in. S kin cancer is the most common form of human cancer and in general the most curable if caught in the early stages. Dr Landsman specializes in skin cancer screening and the treatment of skin cancer. He also includes cosmetic and general dermatology in his practice, which makes his patient demographic quite diverse. Cosmetic dermatology treatments include Botox, fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal and laser skin treatments. I m able to treat patients needs throughout their lifespan, from infancy to the golden years, he said. In one day, I can see a teenager with acne and low self-esteem and help their skin clear up, which helps them feel better about themselves, then help a middle-aged person look their best by recommending a skin care regimen or Botox or filler treatment if appropriate and the patient desires it, and finally, find melanoma in its early stages on an elderly person and save a life. Dr Landsman recommends patients have a full body exam regardless of the r eason for the visit. Its also recommended people see a dermatologist once a y ear for a full body exam. Things can look suspicious to me before causing any symptoms because of my experience, he said. O utside of visiting a dermatologist, people can promote their own skin care on a day-to-day basis. Pr acticing safe sun by applying sunscreen with SPF 30 and zinc oxide as an active ingredient every two to three hours is a good way to start. P laying tennis is one of Dr. Landsmans favorite pastimes and in addition to sunscreen, he recommends wearing sun protective clothing, wide brimmed hats and sunglasses during outdoor activities. I practice what I preach, Dr. Landsman said. He r ecommends that people examine themselves on a regular basis and get to know the moles and other growths on their bodies, as self-exams can have a positive long term effect on overall health. I f anything is changing, see a dermatologist as soon as possible, he said. I look forward to being your dermatologist. The Aesthetic Dermatology Center of Ve ro Beach is located at 787 37th St. Suite E-250 in Vero Beach. New patients are w elcome, and anyone can call for an appointment.

Q:What were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the school board this election cycle? A: No. 1, Common Core and the takeov er of our schools by federal education. and the overuse of high-stakes tests. No 2, spending decisions such as spending more $20 million on support and administration buildings while simultaneously putting kids in modular temporary classrooms. Our school board shouldnt be living like royalty while our kids are treated like refugees. No .3, the lack of transparency and open communication between the school district and the public they are employed to serve. Q:What are the top issues facing the school board in the next couple of y ears? How would y ou handle them? A: The top issues are No. 1, out of control borrowing & spending; No. 2, federal control of local schools; No. 3 poor communication and distrust of the school district; No. 4, poor school grades because we are focusing on the wrong things and No. 5, low teacher morale. I would deal with them using the F .R.O.S.T. plan: F. F iscal Responsibility R. Removing Common Core/ Federal E ducation and over use of high-stakes testing O. O pen public meetings and communication S. Smarter School Spendingfocusing on delivering a world-class education to students not administration and support services. T. T eachers and Technologyfocusing on these two factors proven to increase student gains for all students. The immediate challenge will be finding a new S uperintendent. Im counting on the public to provide guidance by going to http://VoteForFr ost.com and completing the survey. Q:How would y ou rate the school boards communication level with the community on major issues? Is there something you would improve? A: Terrible. After answering the litmus test of whether I am for or against Common Core, this is the first topic that most often comes up. There are three measures I would propose. No 1, open up the meetings by operating them like the Indian River County B oard of County Commissioners. Discontinue use of a three minute-rule for public comment. As long as the citizen speaking is on topic and being courteous, let them speak. No 2, I will personally institute a 24 hour response policy for emails and phone calls and will put matters of great importance up for a vote on my website, as Ive begun with the superintendent search. The technology is cheap and an easy way to poll the will of the people. No 3, I will propose the district develop a policy to operationally define the term r easonable where it applies to public r ecords requests and requests for other information. My suggestion would be an N ame:Charles Searcy C ontact information: CharlesSearcy4SchoolBoard@aol.com F amily: Married to Jill, three adult children, two grandchildren in Indian River C ounty schools. Pr evious public office held: Indian River County School Board member from 1996-2000 Q:What were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the school board this election cycle? A: My passion has always been to improve the lives of our young people through education, and have also been involved in many community activities during my 35 years in Indian River County. In the near future the school district will face serious issues such as common core curriculum, setting budgets, performance pay for teachers and selecting a new superintendent. H aving served on the board from 1996-2000, I understand the requirements of a board member and have a r ecord of successfully performing the job with intelligence, insight and integrity. I also understand the chain of command structure of the district and will do my job as policy maker. The superintendent will be held accountable for faithfully implementing those policies. I am totally dedicated to providing the best education possible for all students in Indian River C ounty while establishing policies for teachers that are fair and reasonable, and will work with board members to achieve that goal. Q:What are the top issues facing the school board in the next couple of years? Ho w would you handle them? A: One, Common Core Standards. I plan to work with the legislature to allow the district to set our own standards and opt out of Common Core without a financial penalty Tw o, the rapidly declining grades our district received from the Department of E ducation2011-A, 2012-B, 2013-C. R ecent test scores reveal 44 percent of our third grade students cannot read at grade level. I will work with the superintendent to implement stronger r eading and math programs in the early grades. Three, low teacher morale. Teachers are the most important link between our students and their education. I will insist on more open communication between the teachers, administration, school board and parents. We need to standardize the curriculum and eliminate frequent major changes, and mas-F riday, August 15, 20144Hometown News SEBASTIAN www.HometownNewsOL.com 103879 787065V ocelle &Berg, LLP(772) 562-8111www.VocelleBerg.comFORECLOSURE DEFENSE Dr. Amy Cousino Feline Medicine and Surgery Full-service animal hospital Cat Supplies & MeowByMail Deluxe Boarding & Groomimg www.TheCatsMeowCatClinic.com 772-388-5550 L et Go and Dance!Sebastian Plaza250 Sebastian Blvd., Suite 7, Sebastian, FL 32958937-467-3350 badcdance.comBallet, Lyrical, Tap, Jazz, Hiphop, Modern, Broadway COM E IN OR CALL US TODAY TO REGISTER FOR YOUR CLASSESClasses Begin August 25 102611 094753 AreaRugGalleryOnline.com3351 W.

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, AUG. 15, 2014 SEBASTIAN WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM PAGE 6Reasons behind handicapped space useIn response to all the people who are so upset by the use of the handicap parking, I would like to make something clear. I have a handicap tag. I have had 11 joint surgeries but some days I feel pretty good. At 77-years old I know that I have got to move and yes sometimes I do go to the gym. I sometimes kayak too. Often I do not use my tag especially if it is the only one open. I try to let someone in more need than me use it. However if more than one is open I will use one. Some days I could walk the beach. But other days it hurts to get out of bed or especially the car. I have asthma and an inflammatory arthritis and I live alone. I would gladly give up my tag if I would be sure that those good days I have would last. So if y ou see someone walking to the gym from a handicap space, it might be someone like me who needs to use it or lose it.A dull outlookGreece is bankrupt. Portugal is in trouble. Several other European countries are teetering on the verge of insolvency. Cradle-to-the-grave welfare entitlements, public employee unions and socialism have all but destroyed Eur opean vigor. Our future is ominous. Living our own livesI would like to thank you for your paper and the information you have r ecently put in pertaining to the politicians. That has helped me a lot in making my choice. And, I guess, my one rant would be that I find it interesting in Florida that they are totally against tobacco; however, they are for legalizing pot. Mo re accidents happen with alcohol, but there is nothing done about that. Im for to each his own. If you are not hurting anybody, I wish the government would quit trying to live their lives for them. Thank you.Dont tell these callers anything, please!I have been getting a lot of telephone calls telling me that I am approved for a $ 5,000 loan. All that shows on my caller I.D. is the name of the state and a telephone number. I tell them if I want a loan, I go to the bank. I don't deal with people calling me, and I don't even know who they are. They do this to get information to use to their advantage. It's a scam! If you get these kinds of calls, don't give in to them. Say the same thing that I did, and then let them know that y ou do not want them to call back. I have even said that I am a detective. When I have said that, they hang up real quick, That is a very good way to know that they are scam artists, trying to get information that they use to their advantage. Be r eal careful with your information.Wishing to be addressed by staffers in a proper mannerAs a recent retiree, who moved here several months ago, I am enjoying many aspects of the Florida lifestyle. How ever, one big shock relates to the way that I am addressed by staff and professionals in business settings. F or example, at a medical appointment, the doctor addressed me as sw eetie during the appointment! And in other similar settings, such as an eyeglass fitting, where my name was readily available, the staffer called me dear. This seems to occur regularly during business interactions where my name is readily available, and it would be just as easy to address me as M s. ______. The use of this common form of r espect should be included in the communications training of support staff. U se of such endearments as "sweetheart," "dear," "sweetie" and hon during professional appointments, billing transactions and other business encounters sounds tacky and lowclass. On the male side of things, my husband has noted that some transactions will include the staffer calling him buddy. P lease! There is a point where friendliness crosses the line into inappropriate and unappealing overly familiar terms of address! And just for the record, I am fairly fit, w ell dressed and on the younger side; so I really think the use of these inappropriate endearments is just an impolite habit that is applied to all, r egardless of appearance. It is not charming, and it is really a turn-off. It is just as easy, and takes just a few seconds longer, for staff to learn to address customers, patients and clients in a courteous manner!

sive unnecessary paperwork needs to be eliminated. Students with continual discipline problems should be placed in an alternative learning environment. Let teachers do what they love and do best...educate our students. F our, poor communication between school board and public. I will attempt to implement a board policy that would r equire a board member to respond in a timely manner to questions from students, parents, and citizens. Fi ve, hiring a new Superintendent of Schools-In order to acquire the largest pool of highly qualified candidates I would favor a nationwide search that could include highly qualified local applicants. With Dr. Fran Adams retirement, hiring a new qualified superintendent with a proven record of exceptional leadership and managerial performance is one of my top priorities. The prevailing candidate should bring to our community a vision of high achievement with a dedication to excellence S ix, legal fees. According to my information from legal professionals, the curr ent district attorneys compensation is excessive. The board needs to reevaluate this contract and consider local representation. Q:How would you rate the school boards communication level with the community on major issues? Is there something you would improve? A: The board could and should do more to encourage public participation. The board is not completely open with the community when it comes to allowing citizens input at workshops and board meetings. I will attempt to implement a board policy that would require a board member to respond in a timely manner to questions from students, parents, and citizens. A good strong chairperson could maintain order and keep the meeting flowing smoothly by allowing citizens to speak on action items at board meetings prior to board vote. This process works for the Indian River County Commission and the process can work for the School Board. Q:What is your position on the Common Core State Standards Initiative? A: I am not in favor of the federally mandated curriculum and the costs of implementation. However, Florida Standards are the law for the coming year so the federal curriculum will be required. Q:What makes you the best candidate for the job? A: My experience as a previous school board member will make me an invaluable addition to our present board. In a r ecent endorsement in the editorial page of the Vero Beach Press Journal, the editor stated Searcy fought for educational excellence and administrative transparency. While some thought Searcy divisive, he worked diligently on behalf of the public. I am a graduate of the University of F lorida with a bachelors degree in economics, a U.S. Army veteran, and I have 39 years of dealing with financial and credit decisions. Over the past 35 years, I have spent thousands of hours in local community service here in Indian River Countynot some other county. I was appointed by former Florida Education Commissioner Frank Brogan to serve on an educator contract and performance task force. Many of my leadership roles such as District Lt. Governor of K iwanis International, financial campaign fundraiser chairman for United Wa y, etc. made me aware of all the needs of the community, not just educational needs. Hir ing a new qualified superintendent with a proven record of exceptional leadership and managerial performance will be one of my top priorities when elected. I will hold the superintendent, as the educational leader of the district, accountable for carrying out the policies of our district. I will also work with the superintendent, staff and the community to raise the Department of Education score of C back to A. While serving on the Indian River C ounty School Board I spent many hours studying educational issues and I was always willing to ask informed questions. I am dedicated to providing the best education possible for all students in Indian River County and establishing policies for this community that are fair and reasonable. N ame:Randy Heimler C ontact information: R and205we@aol.com; (786) 512-7017 F amily: Married to Cecilia, one son Pr evious public office held: None Q:What were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the school board this election cycle? A: The district continues to drop lower every year and it is definitely time for a candidate who brings fresh ideas and a new perspective and I can provide those. We need someone who has not been there 20 years ago, and has run for multiple county positions unsuccessfully. Over the past 15 years, I have volunteered more than 5,000 hours for the school systems in Florida. I have also taught two years of fifth grade math and donated all of my salary to help the less fortunate families in Miami and Vero B each. I will be working extremely hard on r estoring the morale of our educators here, as it is at an all-time low. I want to continue to help provide the best possible education for our children. We need our teachers and support staff to be r espected and appreciated, both financially and emotionally. One of my strengths that is vital to the success of our school district is both parental and community involvement. I earned the State of Floridas Department of Educations Volunteer of the Year A ward for my ability to bring the entire community in to help a Double F failing school to become a C school. I will be a Full Time board member, which is essential to being able to interact and engage the entire community. I will have an open door policy and will be very transparent with all of the citizens of I ndian River County, especially the parents. I have an 8-year-old going into 3rd grade, and he along with all of our children is my incentive to work every day to improve our childrens education. Ev ery decision I will make will be in the best interests of the children.Hometown News SEBASTIAN www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, August 15, 20147 102604 103877 Richard Steinfeld, MD. FAAOS Marcus J.

The longest it should take would be 10 business days with a goal of delivering in five business days. Even if it is longer, people do better knowing when they will receive a response and it will help the restore trust in the district. Q:What is your position on the Common Core State Standards Initiative? A: Im opposed to the federal takeover of our schools for one simple reason: it is bad for parents, students, teachers and taxpayers. The only ones who benefit are the corporations making the tests and their consultants who re-educate our teachers (again). It s bad for students because it pulls high performing students down to the common level and leaves those with learning challenges in the dust. Many of the standards are a dumbing down of previous standards. It relies too heavily on the test (and retest) because that is how those pushing it make money. It r educes a year of experience into a single proof. It s bad for parents because the state is collecting more than 415 data points about your child that you may not want to be subject to data mining. It is also bad for parents because they cannot help their children with homework. The Internet is loaded with examples of the ridiculous new Common Core math. It is bad for teachers because they find their pay linked to things over which they may not have any control such as science teachers having at-risk compensation linked to reading gains because there is no easy Common Core measure. Common Core stifles creativity and the teachers ability to reach out to students in different instructional methods. The assessment tool being implemented as part of the Common Core State Standards is being unevenly applied and has r esulted in principals rating no teachers as highly effective and others with all of their teachers rated as highly effective. C ommon sense would tell you that this homogeneity is unlikely. It s bad for taxpayers because the $700 million inducement to adopt the Common Core by the Race to the Top grant, according to Gary Chartrand, the chairman of the State Board of Education, in a F eb 18 meeting, will cover only a fraction of the estimated $2.5 billion cost of implementation in Florida. The rest will come from LOCAL taxpayer revenues. We are already seeing the reallocation of the money the voters generously approved in the 2012 ballot referendum. $1.3 million is being spent on the federally mandated data collection and mining system (LIIS) and according to Carter Morrison, the district assistant superintendent of finance, 100 percent of this is coming from local taxes. This means the kids will be shorted 6,000 student computers for the sake of reporting our data to a federal bureaucracy. We need to get rid of Common Core and return to common sense. Q:What makes you the best candidate for the job? A: I am uniquely qualified to sit on the board by having a robust combination of experience and education. I have a masters degree in leadership and business background, Ive actually taught in our public schools full-time, Ive been a leader and leadership coach for over 20 y ears, and I view my most important relev ant role as that of father and advocate for my two school-aged children. I know what it means to be on the frontlines of education. Ive had my bonus tied to measures that were completely beyond my control. As a parent, I understand the frustrations our parents are facing from the loss of parental rights through this federal intrusion into our schools. Ive seen my children literally worried sick over the overemphasis on these high stakes tests. As a taxpayer, I am sick of seeing millions of dollars being spent on things that provide little value to achieving a world-class education for our students. As a U.S. Marine Sergeant, I learned what is meant by leaders eat last so I will focus efforts and resources on the kids. My greatest assets are a servants heart and a mind for common sense. These seem to be what are desperately needed on the board. If you agree the answer is simple vote for Shawn and the F .R.O.S.T. plan to take back our school board from common core and restore common sense. N ame:Karen Disney-Brombach C ontact information: voteforkarendisney@gmail.com F amily: Married to Robert Brombach, three children and one grandson Pr evious public office held: Indian River County School Board member, with terms from 2006-2010 and 20102014. Q:What were some of the deciding factors in choosing to run for a seat on the school board this election cycle? A: Our school district has embarked on an ambitious plan for improved student learning and education via digital technology. Continuity in leadership is essential to continue the path we are on, especially now that we know the S uperintendent of Schools is retiring. My experience and leadership skills will be v aluable assets to guide the board through the superintendent hiring process. Missteps are costly to the district not only in dollars but also in time lost on task. Q:What are the top issues facing the school board in the next couple of years? Ho w would you handle them? A: Student achievement must be the No 1 priority, especially reading. Secondly, we must continue to address our aging infrastructure to improve operational inefficiencies and be better neighbors in the community. As a Board Member, staying the course is actually an action. We have implemented a plan for reaching some ambitious goals and that plan needs to be implemented with fidelity and continuity. To do otherwise will disrupt the learning gains in progress. Results are accomplished over time and retraining teachers is costly. When it comes to the facility needs, there is some pushback from the community about spending money on buildings. Ignoring those facility issues will only cost more if unattended. Having the political will to look at the long view is difficult because often the benefits of r etrofits and energy efficient buildingsDistrict 1F rom page 4 See DISTRICT 1, page 14

Cast Your Vote & Be Entered to Win a Fabulous V acation! W atch for active school zonesINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Indian River County schools are back in session starting Aug. 18, and that means motorists need to be extra vigilant when driving around school zones and near residential areas. In the morning hours when children are arriving to school in buses, vehicles, on bicycles or on foot, motorists and other pedestrians and cyclists should be watchful of the flashing lights that indicate a school z one. State law also requires cars to stop behind school buses with red flashing lights and an extended stop arm while children board or disembark from the bus. M any school zones in Indian River C ounty are set for 20 miles per hour for brief periods while school is beginning and ending. Dr iving too fast in a school zone puts other motorists in danger, not to mention children who may be crossing the road, officials said. R ear-end collisions can be more frequent when motorists are not paying attention to the posted speed limits and approach other moving vehicles too quickly. Fi nes for driving over the speed limit in a school zone depend on how many miles over the limit the motorist travels. A ccording to the Indian River C ounty Clerk of Courts website, the fine for exceeding the speed limit in a school zone between one and nine miles per hour is $133. For driving 10 to 14 miles per hour above the limit, the fine increases to $283, for 15 to 19 miles per hour, the fine jumps to $383. Motorists at speeds 20 to 29 miles per hour above the school z one speed during school zone hours will receive a $433 ticket, while drivers exceeding 30 miles per hour above the posted limit will have a mandatory court date in addition to a fine. Law enforcement officials recommend that children walking or biking to school wear brightly-colored clothing so that motorists can see them more easily, and encourage all students to wear safety helmets while biking.By Jessica Creaganjcreagan@hometownnewsol.comEnsure student athletes are ready for the seasonTREASURE COAST For many kids, playing sports is an important part of growing up, and thats a good thing. S ports are a great way for children and adolescents to develop lifelong exercise habits, build relationships, and learn teamwork. He re are ways to help your child avoid common sports hazards: C ondition A thletes will reduce their risk of injury by strengthening muscles to protect vulnerable ligaments. Girls need to be especially careful, according to statistics. Adolescent girls are four to eight times more likely to suffer A CL injuries than boys, according to the AAP. S tay Hydrated W ater is the best way for kids to stay hydrated while playing or exercising. S ports and energy drinks are heavily marketed to children and adolescents, but in most cases kids dont need them and some of these products contain ingredients that could be harmful to children. Pr otect Your Head B ecause young athletes brains are still developing, its important to take head injuries seriously. Adolescent concussions can cause long-term brain injury. If your young athlete sustains a concussion, he or she should be evaluated by a physician and receive medical clearance before returning to play. While concussion symptoms usually resolve in seven to 10 days, some athletes may take weeks or months to r ecover, and some students may need accommodations at school during this r ecovery. Dont Overdo It The most common type of sports injury is from overuse.Ignoring pain can worsen the injury and cause longterm damage.By StatePointF or Hometown News

W ith several options available, from facilities to in-home care and individual caretakers, its important to do ample r esearch when making the best choice for each individual child. The department offers a provider search of licensed facilities that can be r eviewed by county and zip code in order for parents to learn about facilities located in their area and what programs are offered. Licensed providers have inspection histories included in their listings as w ell as details about their program from fullto part-time care and ages of children served, to hours of operation and whether or not meals or transportation is provided. When selecting a child care facility its important to not only know what is r equired of the facility, to ensure they are complying with state laws, but also to know what to look for in a quality setting. Par ents can download a one-page checklist to bring along when taking a tour in order to make sure its the best choice for their child. Teacher-to-child ratios, food and nutrition information, health related r equirements, and what to look for in quality caregivers, environments and activities are all covered on the checklist. It s crucial to know the background and parenting skills of anyone who is responsible for caring for a child. An overwhelming number of children are abused or neglected at the hands of nonr elative caregivers boyfriends, girlfriends or friends of the parents who may be ill-equipped to care for these young children. In partnership with more than 30 statewide agencies and organizations, DCFs Whos Really Watching Your Child? campaign offers parents free r esources for choosing quality caregivers for young children. The departments Office of Child Care R egulation and Background Screening is statutorily responsible for the administration of child care licensing and training throughout Florida. The purpose of this program is to ensure that children are well-cared for in a safe, healthy, positive and educational environment by trained, qualified child care staff. This program currently regulates licensed child care facilities, licensed family day care homes, licensed large family child care homes, and specialized child care facilities for the care of mildly ill children in 62 of the 67 counties in Florida. In addition, the office administers the registration of family day care homes not r equired to be licensed.

Pelican Diner in Sebastian is just that place. After being a chef in r estaurants across the country, owner Greg Hepler settled in Sebastian and fulfilled a lifelong dream of o wning his own eatery. I v e always wanted to have my own place and when the opportunity opened up for me to make this my home, I took it Mr. H epler said. I visited the diner on a S unday afternoon and was surprised to find the diner full to capacity. My guest and I found made our selves comfortable at the last two seats available at the diners counter. The friendly staff quickly brought us menus and our refreshing beverages were in front of us within minutes. The family feel was evident as the Mr. Hepler and the waitresses greeted customers by name. Theres a real family atmosphere here, Mr. Hepler said. My mom works the cash register and my dad is in here all the time. My eight-year old daughter knows how to run the register and can even process the credit cards, he said with a smile. The diner, which serves breakfast all day, also serves a vast array of lunch items. Di nner, which is served on Fr iday only, includes weekly specials such as grilled chicken over mushroom Cliff Partlow /staff photographerMali Cobb and Danika Harrelson perform Space Jam in the aerial sphere during the Vero Beach Recreation Departments Aerial Antics Circus last week.

are not realized during our term in office. Q:How would you rate the school boards communication level with the community on major issues? Is there something you would improve? A: While there is always room for improvement, our school district has improved in all areas of communication. The area I believe could be most improved is providing an opportunity for public comment during non-business meetings. Q:What is your position on the Common Core State Standards Initiative? A: Taking your question literally, my position as a constitutional officer r equires that all my actions be consistent and in harmony with state laws and with r ules and minimum standards of the state board according to state law. I believe the larger question is about federal involvement in education. The U.S. D epartment of Education has expanded its role in education making education more expensive for taxpayers and less r esponsive to parents and teachers. I do not agree with federal involvement in education, it is a function of the states. M uch of the federal advocacy I have done was about the issue of local control vs. federal control. In a manner consistent with my position I will continue to advocate for the necessary changes still to be made in the Florida State Standards. Q:What makes you the best candidate for the job? A: Experience is necessary as we continue to navigate the ever changing landscape in public education. Building good working relationships with local, state and federal agencies and other elected official takes time and perseverance. M eeting with the White House Education Advisory staff, U.S. Department of E ducation, Senate and House Education C ommittees, I was able to communicate the impact of federal mandates on local school districts. At the state level, meeting with the Governor and his staff as w ell as the Florida Commissioner of E ducation, I have discussed the impact of high stakes testing to children and the importance of parental choice. These and many other issues will continue to be raised to the benefit of our students and the protection of the taxpayers. Every year on the school board has been a learning opportunity. I have been diligent about professional development including earning the distinction of Certified Board Member. As the Pr esident of the Florida School Boards Association, I have the privilege of spending time with and learning from the success of other districts.

Each dinner item comes with a side dish and either Manhattan or New England clam chowder can be added for an additional cost. Although it was hard to make a choice between all of the appealing breakfast items, my guest and I decided to try a couple of entrees from the lunch menu. Mr. Hepler suggested we try some of his homemade soups while we made our decisions. He brought out a cup of broccoli cheddar soup and a cup of chicken noodle. I started out with the broccoli cheddar which was creamy and full of small pieces of tender broccoli. The perfect blend of cheddar cheeses made the soup extremely enjoyable. My dining companion soon took the broccoli cheddar soup from me and finished it before I had a chance to ask for more. The chicken noodle soup was nothing more than delicious. The tasty broth had a flawless amount of spices and was full of chunky pieces of chicken, fresh vegetables and tender noodles. Either soup could have been a main course. As soon as we were finished with our soup, Mr. Hepler brought out our lunch. I ordered the Pelican Petes R euben, which is a heaping amount of carved turkey topped with coleslaw and Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing on grilled rye bread. This sandwich was incredible. The crunchy exterior of the sandwich gave way to the different flavors from inside the sandwich. Id never had a sandwich that included all of those items, but it was truly a flavor able combination. My dining companion had the fried shrimp, which were deep fried to perfection. The meal was served with a large portion of French fries and a vegetable. O ther items on the lunch menu include cheeseburgers, pork chops, chili, French fries and gravy different kinds of salads and a homemade veggie burger that is made with oats, barley, garbanzo beans, peas, corn and bell peppers. The breakfast menu, which is available all day, boasts everything from The Nest, which is two poached eggs nesting on top of homemade corn beef hash to the Full Bill, which is two eggs on top of a biscuit homemade corn beef hash and a side of potatoes. Other items include homemade Quiche, pancakes, omelets, Belgian waffles and sausage and gravy. If thats not enough, there are also homemade sweet treats for dessert, although you may have to take those home for later. P elican Diner is located at 13260 U.S. 1 in Sebastian.

Hometown News SEBASTIAN www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, August 15, 201417 Master the art of growing African violetsOne of the most intriguing and beautiful houseplants is the African violet. These delicate plants are admired by many but a lot of people shy away from purchasing them because they think they are hard to grow. This is not really the case. It is true that they require some attention but then again, most other plants do also. The first step is to decide what plant y ou would like to bring home. African violets come in several colors and some var ieties have variegated leaves. As with most flowering plants, it is a good idea to buy plants that have some buds that not y et have opened. Make sure the leaves look healthy and green. Once you purchase your new plant, you need to transplant it into a different pot. Be sure to choose a pot that is designed for African violets. A regular flowerpot is too deep. Be sure to purchase a potting soil that is designed for African violets. You also should purchase some small pebbles or stones. You will also need a saucer to place under the pot. After you have purchased your plants and the supplies you will need, its time to do the fun part. Fill your African violet pot about half full with soil and place the newly purchased plant centered in the pot. Fill the remainder of the space with more soil. Pat the soil down slightly and then add a little more soil to top off the pot. Once your plant is situated, you can add a couple of J obes plant spikes to the mix. Now, here comes the tricky part. Water your plants by placing tepid water in the plant saucer you purchased. Place the pot in the saucer and allow it to absorb the water for about an hour. Do not water the plant from the top or allow water to touch the leaves. S ince African violets are native to Africa, they require a humid environment in which to thrive. You can use y our saucer to help raise the humidity around your plant. You can achieve this by first placing small stones in the bottom of the saucer. Now, place your pot in the saucer and level the rocks so the pot remains steady. Now, put some water in the water but be sure the water does not completely cover the stones or touches the bottom of the pot. This water will enhance the humidity around the plant and ensure that it r emains happy. Check the plant every few days and water as needed. Always use the above-mentioned method for watering and do not water from the top. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years e xperience in gardening and landscape. S end e-mails to hometowngarden@gmail.com or visit his website www.hometowngarden.com. GAR DEN NOOKJOE ZELENAK Q:What are the top issues facing the school board in the next couple of years? Ho w would you handle them? A: The search for a new Superintendent of Schools has just come into play and that is one of the main functions of the board. We need to look outside the district for someone who has a proven track r ecord and only offer one year contracts, without any golden parachutes. Improving the communications between the public and the district is vital to the success of this district. Q:How would you rate the school boards communication level with the community on major issues? Is there something you would improve? A: C at best. The district cannot continue to alienate itself from the community and eliminating the three minute public comment rule at the board meetings is vital. I will push for monthly meetings between the board and the public, without the district. We need the support of the community to move this district up. Q:What is your position on the Common Core State Standards Initiative? A: I am always against federal intervention in our states business. We are the U nited States of America and each state earned the right to govern themselves. The federal government uses the reward money as a carrot that is supposed to entice the states from moving away from their own values and shift everything to obtain those dollars. Q:What makes you the best candidate for the job? A: My passion and compassion for all of our students is my driving force. I have a third grader at Rosewood Elementary who inspires me every day. This is not a new area for me, as I have been heavily involved in public education for the past 15 years. I will be able to interact with the public, parents, teachers and students in order to have as many ideas possible to improve us. I have been endorsed by the IRCEAI ndian River County Educators Association, their first endorsement in six years. The teachers are the ones who know who is the best qualified for this ever so important job. The Realtors Association has endorsed me as well, as good schools are vital to enticing families to move to our county. I have an extensive business background, as well as an education background. With both of those and my passion to improve our schools, I am the best candidate for this position.
