D aniel Mendez was also charged with bribery. According to the arrest report, he offered two officers money to release him when he learned of his impending arrest. The victims, Carlos Guch and his father, Benjamin Guch, both received knife wounds during a confrontation with the Mendez brothers and were treated at Indian River Medical Center and r eleased hours after the stabbing, said D etective John Finnegan. C arlos Guch received several stab wounds to the back of his head and neck area and was also punched and kicked, while Benjamin Guch suffered a minor cut to his wrist while attempting to break apart the fight, according to arrests r eports. The father and son both said they believe they were attacked because they are Guatemalan. The Mendez brothers are Mexican and have spoken to the G uchs previously, making statement about how they dont like Guatemalans. Alexander Mendez lives in the front section of the trailer in which the father and son reside and both victims said there have been statements made in the past indicating they would die, but this is the first altercation from those statements. B oth victims told detectives that they still fear for their lives. A ccording to the arrest report, Carlos G uch arrived at his residence with a friend. Upon exiting the passenger side of the pickup truck, Carlos Guch was confronted by Daniel Mendez who was hiding behind a vehicle on the property. D aniel Mendez began punching Carlos G uch in the face and chest and then Alexander Mendez attacked him from the rear and stabbed him in the back of the neck with a knife. B enjamin Guch attempted to break up the fight, but was attacked by Alexander M endez and received a cut to his wrist.

SEBASTIAN Whether its fast-paced and perky dance steps or a slower and controlled spin, dancing can improve confidence, self-esteem and a healthy mind and body, a local dance teacher said. At the Brooke Alise Dance Company, students learn new ways to express themselves through music and dance, and watching their growth through the process is amazing, said Brooke Jendrusik. The Brooke Alise Dance Company in S ebastian is privately owned by Ms. Jendrusik, an experienced dancer and chor eographer with an undergraduate degree in dance performance with a minor in vocal music performance. I v e danced from a very young age and I always knew I wanted to teach and o wn my own studio and here I am, Ms. J endrusik said. S he relocated to the area from Ohio and has truly embraced Sebastian as her new hometown and appreciates the small-town quality the city is known for. Ms. Jendrusik teaches ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, Broadway and modern dance styles, and also gives Zumba classes for adults. Br oadway is more of a musical theater style-dance, group numbers and specific to the Broadway show, she said. While studying at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., Ms. Jendrusik was a member of the universitys show choir as a singer, dancer and choreographer. I v e choreographed for show choirs in Ohio and Indiana for five years and have had my choreography featured on The Today Show, The World Choir G ames and across the Midwest, Ms. J endrusik said. I think music is a powerful element and combining it with dance expands it, she said. D ance teaches discipline, both in body and mind and Ms. Jendrusik teaches students as young as three years old. Y ou have to be able to pay attention and remember what you have learned, she said. Group classes for children are offered for those older than 4 on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons and evenings. A ballet and tap combination class is offered for 3and 4-year-olds on S aturday mornings. Pr ivate lessons are available during the week as well. Da ncing is an incredibly fun outlet and is very enjoyable for many people, Ms. Jendrusik said. While all of her current students are girls, Ms. Jendrusik said she is opening up a boys hip-hop class within the next month and is hopeful that some will come out and try it. S tudents are accepted at all skill levels, Ms. Jendrusik said. As long as they are here, ready to dance and abide by my rules, then they are ready to go, she said. A dult ballet, tap and jazz classes are taught on Saturdays. A dult Zumba classes are available on M onday and Thursday evenings, Ms. J endrusik said. Z umba is a Latin dance class with music that is Latin based and you just dance the whole time. Its very easy to follow and its fun. You can get cardio in and weight lifting too in a fun atmosphere, she said. Br ooke Alise Dance Company is located at 250 Sebastian Blvd.Suite 7,Sebastian.For more information,call (937) 467-3350 or visit www.badcdance.com or www.facebook.com/badcdance.Hometown News SEBASTIAN www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 12, 20143 102183FORONLY...Treasure &Space Coasts Certified Water Specialist Water Analysis Clean Injectors Check Settings FREE 60lb Bag of SaltT une-Up Special$35With this Money Saving Coupon Expires 8/31/14 allritewaterfl.com N ewly OpenedJew elry Repair on Premises W atch B attery ReplacementOPEN TUESDAY TO SATURDAY787910 FREE Gift w/ Purchaseof $20 or MoreExpires 9/30/14 HTNOTB82014Tr opical F ashionsB ay Street SquareAcr oss From Sebastian Medical Center14160 US 1 Sebastian772-388-3800Cr uise/Resort Wear Ne w homes are always very popular and we are fortunate to have more than a dozen builders in the community who can build your dream home or sell you an already completed one.

VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, SEPT. 12, 2014 SEBASTIAN WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM PAGE 6Out of controlThe power of the federal government is out of control. As the state legislators at the recent Mt. Vernon Assembly realized, Washingtons abuse of power instigated by both Republicans and D emocrats must come to an end before its too late.Debt is abuseThe $17 trillion national debt is one example of this abuse. Our children and grandchildren will pay for Washingtons spending spree. There will be taxes imposed for spending they never approved and from which they never directly benefited. The cry of that generation will echo that of the founding generation: Taxation without representation! For tunately, when the national government becomes drunk with power, the states possess the authority to reorganize the government in a manner that preserves liberty. Article V of the C onstitution allows states to call a convention for the purpose of proposing amendments to the Constitution. Using an Article V convention, the states can stop the spending and debt spree, the power grabs of the federal courts, and the forfeiture of American sovereignty to the UN. Citizens for Self-Governance has started the Convention of States Pr oject to urge state legislators to call a C onvention of States. To get involved visit our website, conventionofstates.com and our Facebook page, Facebook.com/conventionofstates. You can also contact Floridas COS state leadership at Florida's Leaderships Email.Dont redefine marriageWe need to rebuild and restore the institution of marriage, not redefine it. A dding same-sex marriage would be the most radical change since the introduction of no-fault divorce, and would prioritize the romantic desires of adults ov er the needs of children. Defending marriage as a lifelong union of one man and one woman should be a social-justice priority, since fatherlessness is a major source of social dysfunction.Things are as bad as they seemWe moved to the area back in 2009 and though it was smack in the middle of the recession, we didn't expect things to be as bad as they are. My husband worked for Nasdaq before the new President took over and started massive layoffs in Connecticut. He can't even get a job and all the interviews he's been on, people get intimidated when they see his resume because of his professional background. Sorry folks, you want a professional person, the Stock Market doesn't get much more Elite or Corpor ate! They don't hire slackers. There are literally no jobs in this town. Everything is either part-time, seasonal or 'who knows who' and with low wages starting at times lower than $8 an hour. Can someone tell me how y ou are going to continue to lure people to move to Vero Beach when $8 an hour won't even make a dent in a single mortgage payment? How many are dipping into their 401k to cover expenses? The powers that be must start luring companies here, even the bigger Corporations. With all the large amounts of land available out by I-95 corridor, there's no reason why several Corpor ate parks can't be built. There's plenty of homes for sale to easily fill people moving here. The wealthy towns of Fairfield County in Connecticut where we came from have had no issues keeping a small town feel while at the same time luring companies in. I own an antique store and that's the biggest complaint when chatting with customers who are visiting or live here. There's no jobs to support a mortgage, car and a family. I can't say I blame them. I met one woman who was moving back to Miami because the industry in this town is just horrible. You apply for one job and you have 50+ people behind you trying for the same position. Just look at any of the local papers in the job section. How many do you see? There's plenty of influence in this town including the folks out at A-1-A with multi-million homes that need to start pitching in. How many of their children live here year around and could afford to live on their own without their parents financial influence?Where does the money go?How does the government account for the funds paid into Social Security, and the person dies before he/she even collects a Social Security check? Where does this money go? Should it not be returned to the persons family? Is S ocial Security an entitlement? Lets see how entitlement is defined: E ntitlement Government Program H elping Specific Group: a government program that targets a particular section of the population to receive specific social benefits. Note the word helping in the definition. Is the government r eally helping me? How much money did the government put into Social S ecurity? I put in 7.5 percent of my earnings into Social Security. My employer puts in 7.5 percent into my Got something to say?

Government puts in nothing. Thats 15 per cent of your income, before taxes. If you averaged $30,000 ov er your working life, your contribution amounts to close to $220,500. Lets calculate future earnings. If y our vested value of $4,500 per year (yours and your employer) at a simple r ate of 5 percent, after 49 years of working, you would have $892,919.98 If you took our just 3 percent each year, y ou would receive $26,787.60 (twice the amount I receive now.) If you bought an annuity at 4 percent per y ear, you would have a lifetime income of $29,760.40 a year. Clearly, ladies and gentlemen, our government has pulled off a Ponzi scheme bigger than Bernie Madoff. They have the audacity to call Social S ecurity an entitlement. It is our money. It is our right to collect Social S ecurity. Now that it is time to collect, our government is running out of money, which they stole from you and me. They had no right, nor authority to take this money and use it to pay for other programs. Se veral years ago, a presidential candidate suggested that a portion of our S ocial Security payments be placed in an annuity program. Many of us were against such a proposal. But now, after doing my research, I believe that his proposal was a fundamentally sound idea. O ur contributions to the financial organization, managing these funds would allow for valid investments, and our funds would continue to grow. Our S ocial Security checks would be double what we receive now. And, upon our death, the funds would be r eturned to our families. J ust imagine if we had done this, our government could not have stolen our money for their use; and our money would have been safely tucked away. I have concluded, and many of my r ants dealing with politicians have the same theme, they no longer serve the needs of the people.American voices neededI am tired, tired, tired of foreign (individuals), broadcasting our American golf tournaments. I cant see where an Australian accent adds anything to the game. They get the big bucks, but they dont add anything that an American pro could do. They are all good; but they are all here, and we dont need them. How many people feel the same way we do? Let us know.Gas prices and taxesI just read that they want to raise all kinds of taxes and gas prices 6 cents a gallon to fix the roads, because they have lax on doing things. Lets get rid of all these high-prices, who are in there, who are doing nothing, sitting on their duffs instead of r aising all these taxes. There is no need for it. Tell Tallahassee, we dont want it.RantsF rom page 6


downtown Vero Beach and will be directed by First United Bank, a chamber member. E ven though we live in a relatively small community, the risks of cybercrime are still a threat to our businesses, said Penny Chandler, president of the Indian River County Chamber of C ommerce. A seminar on this topic raises awareness and will advise on the best practices and precautions that ever the small business owner without an in-house information technology department can use to protect their business information and bottom line, she said. C ybercrime is simply defined as crime conducted using a computer network or the Internet. Some examples of cybercrime against businesses are hacking, where a computer is accessed, usually without the owners knowledge, from a remote location and personal or sensitive information is searched for and collected. I dentity theft is another example, especially found when people use the I nternet for banking services or purchase transactions. An identity thief can use the Internet in some cases to learn Social Security numbers, not to mention access a persons bank account, credit cards and their sensitive and private information, siphoning money slowly from an account or quickly making large purchases, causing major financial losses and potentially harming the victims credit history. I n a business world dominated by w eb-based applications, it makes sense to provide education and information that can help protect our business people and their companies from risk, Ms. Chandler said. T om Garcia, president and CEO of I nfoSight, an information technology, managed security and consulting service, said providing security awareness training to bank customers is a new mandate for his company, due to the rising level of online fraud. Recent news headlining incidents such as Home Depot, Chase and Target (data breaches) underscore the importance of being vigilant on all levels of information security and ecommerce, Mr. Garcia said. When people hear about cybercrime, they often think that it only happens to other people or large organizations, they never expect it to happen to them. The seminar agenda includes a brief overview of current laws and r egulations, a review of cyber threats its evolving landscape, a review of cybercriminal tools and types of attacks, information on how a security breach could harm a business, how F irst United Banks security solutions are protecting customers, and how business owners can protect their businesses.

He later w ent outside and began to use his cell phone where he was attacked by Mr. Cr uz by a long knife. Mr. Cruz then ran away from the McDonalds parking lot and Mr. Adorno made it back into the M cDonalds restaurant before collapsing on the floor. Chief Currey said it took police less than two minutes to respond to the scene from when the 911 call was placed. Emergency services personnel also r esponded to the scene and attempted to save Mr. Adorno, but the stab wounds we re too severe and he succumbed to his injuries. There were at least two stab wounds created by a knife with about a 12-inch blade, one to the chest and one to the shoulder, Chief Currey said P olice recovered the murder weapon, which Mr. Cruz admitted to throwing into the bushes near McDonalds before r unning across the street to Burger King, where he was arrested. A ccording to Mr. Adornos family, Mr. A dorno was cycling from Maryland to M iami to complete a bucket list wish and had planned on arriving in Miami on Thursday, where he planned to propose to his girlfriend, Elyse Fuggetta. Ms. Fuggetta was on the phone with Mr. Adorno just prior to the attack, the arrest affidavit said. S he said they were having a normal conversation and that the last thing she heard was the phone drop and then the sound of sirens. The engagement ring Mr. Adorno was to present to her was on his person at the time of his death and none of his personal belongings were missing, Chief Currey said. Mr. Adorno was a pencil artist and graphic designer. His business website gave an example of how he took a portrait photograph and created a realistic pencil drawing of the likeness. The arrest affidavit said Mr. Cruz stated he had never met Mr. Adorno before, had never spoken to him and didnt believe Mr. Adorno had a weapon. When officers questioned Mr. Cruz after the fatal stabbing, he confessed to the act. Mr. Cruz said the reason for his attack was because he believed Mr. Adorno was directing the people to go after him. He also said he suspected people were watching him from inside the McDonalds and perhaps taking pictures of him. Chief Currey said they had received a call from Mr. Cruz on the evening Aug. 31 saying people were trying to injure him at the Burger King on 1928 U.S. 1. When police responded to the call, officers said Mr. Cruz seemed coherent and acting normal and did not seem mentally ill. Chief Currey said Mr. Cruz has previously been arrested on a variety of charges throughout the 1990s, including but not limited to aggravated battery and kidnapping, public disorder and cocaine posession.

going on in the background that you dont actually see. What you see are the results of all of this behind the scenes markup either working properly or not (as in the case of the r ed X). When you go to a website that has pictures (or any other content that isnt raw text for that matter) there is a line of code embedded behind the scenes on that page that points to the location of whatever the page is trying to display. M ost of the time the images that the web page is pointing to are right where the web page thinks it is and it displays fine but sometimes the picture isnt where the page thinks it is and thats when your browser displays the little red X as a place holder where the image is supposed to be on the page. B ut how can this be? Dont web designers check their work to make sure that the pages display properly? Well, not always! One thing to r emember is that these days just about anybody can throw together a website and that means some web designers just dont know how to check their work properly. F or instance, back when I was first learning how to design websites, I set up a page, uploaded it to the web and then checked it with my browser to make sure it looked OK. I was pleased everything appeared just as I had designed it. Then when I had a friend look at the page he told me there was a problem; none of the pictures would load, just a bunch of little red Xs. I took a look at the pages source code (the behind the scenes code that tells the browser where to put everything) and found that for each of my pictures the page was looking for them on the browsers local C: drive and not the images folder I had uploaded when I created the site. And since the images we re indeed in my C: drive where the page was looking for them they displayed just fine when I looked at the page in my browser. Since no one else had the images on their C: drive they failed to load. In that example, even though I checked the page and all seemed well, it took someone else to discover the problem. Another reason images may fail to load is sometimes a page is pointing to an image on another website altogether and if that image gets taken down or moved there will be nothing there when the page goes looking for it. S ometimes images may fail to load because of heavy traffic. If the site you are accessing is too busy or has a ton of graphics the images may time out when loading and you may have to refresh the page to get all the pictures to display. Now keep in mind that these are just a few of the most common reasons why an image may fail to load when surfing the web and you may even see the same symptoms in your email. W ith email however, the problem may be r esulting from you security settings being set too high. If you are using Outlook or Windows Live Mail for instance and you find that you never see images load in your email messages but you are seeing a ton of red X place holders check your security settings. Click Tools, O ptions then Security and make sure that the B lock images and external content checkbox is not checked. If it is, uncheck it and y ou should then be able to see your email the way it was composed.

F riday, September 12, 201410Hometown News SEBASTIAN www.HometownNewsOL.com 104391 Child Summit taking place Sept. 17-18TREASURE COAST The third annual Treasure Coast Guardians for N ew Futures Child Summit will be held S eptember 17 and 18 at Indian River S tate College. This 2day event is FREE and open to professionals as well as the public. The host, Guardians for N ew Futures (GFNF), is a small but mighty volunteer non-profit serving the Treasure Coast and Okeechobee. GFNFs mission is to support the needs of abused and neglected children while increasing community awareness to recognize and report maltreatment of children. GFNF has become known for their comprehensive free Child Summits and educational workshops; they inform the public of the many issues threating the safety of our children. GFNFs training opportunities reach across disciplines and involve many of the key players like law enforcement, educators, social workers, mental health professionals, parents and interested community members. These informative educational sessions are based on current issues threatening that safety of our children such as human trafficking, adolescent/teen suicide, and current drug trends. There is no issue that GFNF backs away from. GFNFs core mission is based on a sense of responsibility of the entire community to advocate for and protect children. Their unique and comprehensive training model begins with the assumption that all community members are stewards for children. Their free training and educational opportunities do not just extend to those working directly with children but any person who is ready for the challenge of not looking the other way. The Child Summit partners with dozens of other organizations such as I ndian River State College, Sandy Pines, and the Childrens Services Co uncil. The Summit pulls in roughly 400 participants representing more than 180 different child focused organizations. This collaboration between stakeholders is truly astounding.

VERO BEACH Soft music, warm candlelight, an incredible array of French-Caribbean cuisine and attentive staff are a winning dining combination every time. M aison Martinique, a casually elegant r estaurant located on the Caribbean C ourt Boutique Resort property beachside in Vero Beach, exudes refinement and hospitality and is one of the topr ated restaurants in Vero Beach. Ra ve reviews of the restaurant quality and service are prolific on TripAdvisor, an online travel site where users can rate places they have visited, and the restaur ant and hotel have won several awards from the travel site. G uests can dine at tables draped with crisp white tablecloths set with a dramatic folded napkin, shiny cutlery and spotless glasses indoors within the Shell or B amboo dining rooms, or outdoors on the patio underneath twinkling lights. The restaurants new chef, Marcelo S topyra, has been getting his bearings during the summer months and is ready for an influx of customers to try their old favorites and some of the new dishes he will be introducing in the coming weeks. One of the new entrees on the menu is a macadamia nut encrusted grouper with a vanilla bean beurre blanc sauce. Chef Stopyras twist on the sauce is to use coconut milk instead of the traditional butter and wine. I t gives the dish a nice flavor, not a sweet taste because vanilla bean is not naturally sweet, but a savory taste and it complements the richness of the nuts, Chef Stopyra said. The grouper was incredibly tender and moist and the mix of flavors made every bite as tasty as the first. The tastefully presented entre was further complemented by a restaurant standard sweet potato mash and rainbow Swiss chard. The texture of the sweet potato mash with the fish was very pleasant and the r ainbow Swiss chard brought a slightly tangier and exotic flavor to the meal. The dining atmosphere definitely caters to a more mature crowd, but children are certainly welcomed and the chefF riday, September 12, 201412Hometown News SEBASTIAN www.HometownNewsOL.com 102196All YouCan Eat Sunday BreakfastServed from 8:30-11:30 am Breakfast Menu Items Available As Well $6 $6The Fraternal Order of Eagles #40679606 Trade Center Dr. Sebastian, FL Just off Barber St. Behind PublixsPhone 772-589-6573T ell your friends to come in we are looking for new members to enjoy our good food and good times!W ednesday... the best liver onions & bacon, meatloaf, daily specials start at $7.50 every day Thursday...Prime Rib, French Dip, The Best Club Sandwiches, New Hot Specials Friday...Best Fish Fry with Fries, Cole Slaw &Chowder $8.00 Haddock Cooked Your Way, Scampi, Mussels, Etc. are available.

One of the methods I recommend is actually using beneficial bugs to eat other bugs that you want to get rid of. In F lorida, one of the most beneficial bugs that exists is the lady bug. The lady bug, or lady beetle, is probably one of the most colorful and best-known insects that you actually w elcome to your garden. These delightful insects prey and eat such insects as scale, mealy bugs, and mites along with other varieties of insect pests. In Ohio, the lady bug has become the official state insect. A dult lady beetles are dome-shaped and they often have a shiny appearance to their bodies. The most common color is the distinctive red with the black markings. They also can be seen with colorings anywhere from dark reddish orange to a pale yellow with black markings. The life cycle of the lady beetle can va ry depending on the time of year but the average life cycle is around 5 we eks. Lady beetles can lay eggs on plants, often where aphids are present, and the larvae will begin to eat the insects as soon as they hatch. One larva can consume up to 400 aphids! They are amazing eaters. Lady beetles can be purchased in bulk on the Internet. They are very inexpensive and can provide some beneficial results. Sometimes when the insects are purchased in this manner, they may fly away from the area that you want them to flock to, especially if there is a lack of food. I often see lady beetles on plants that I purchase from local nurseries. Often, the nurseries themselves will use this method to help keep insects in check. In short, this could be a fun way to experiment to see how well this method may actually work for you. It could also be a great science project for your kids at school! Another great insect to have the garden is the praying mantis. These unique insects can blend in very well with their surroundings and are often never seen because of this reason. Like the lady beetle, they eat all types of insects and are very effective at controlling insects on your plants. These insects can grow very large, often more than two inches in length. I have on occasion seen them in my o wn gardens around the house. They are the state insect of Connecticut and they are protected in that state. If you spot any of these beneficial insects in your yard or garden, take care not to kill or disturb them. R emember, they are your friends and will help to eat many of the insects that you have to normally kill with chemical pesticides. If you want more information on natural ways to control insects in gardens, you can refer to my article about insecticides at my website. S imply go to the All About Insecticides link.
