en-US 2 en-USINDIAN RIVER COUNTY An Indian en-US River County Assistant Fire Chief who en-US retired in early February has been arrested en-US for stealing approximately $300,000 from en-US the county.en-US Brian Burkeen, 55, of Fellsmere, was en-US arrested March 26 and charged with one en-US count of grand theft and five counts of dealen-US -en-US ing in stolen property, all felonies. He turned en-US himself in and was booked and released the en-US same day after posting $125,000 bond.en-US At a news conference, Sheriff Deryl Loar, en-US County Commissioner Peter OBryan, and en-US County Attorney Dylan Reingold outlined a en-US scheme in which Mr. Burkeen allegedly puren-US -en-US chased tires with county funds and then en-US resold them on the black market, pocketing en-US the cash.en-US Sheriff Loar said that his office had been en-US notified on Feb. 27 by the Indian River en-US County Fire District that they had discoven-US -en-US ered misappropriated funds relating to Mr. en-US Burkeen. IRSO launched its investigation en-US the next day.en-US As we continued this investigation we en-US developed probable cause for an arrest affien-US -en-US davit for Mr. Burkeen, Sheriff Loar said. en-US Our investigation revealed that over the en-US last three years, we believe, and the facts will en-US also indicate, that he committed grand theft en-US to the tune of nearly $300,000, as well as five en-US charges of confirmed dealing in stolen propen-US-en-US erty, i.e. tires.en-US It was a great shock to all of us that knew en-US Brian, County Commissioner Peter OBryen-US-en-US an said. It was a punch in the gut, quite en-US frankly. But we will look into this and make en-US sure we adjust our policies so it doesnt hapen-US -en-US pen again.en-US As soon as this was brought to our attenen-US -en-US tion, we worked with our auditor and also en-US with the Clerk of the Court, who handles en-US most of the finances for the county, Comm. en-US OBryan said. As we get more information en-US from the sheriff, and we can use that to do a en-US forensic inquiry of our practices, well be en-US looking at ways to see if we can change our en-US policies to make sure this doesnt happen en-US again. We are still waiting until the sheriff en-US can complete his investigation, we wont en-US have all the information that they have.en-US Mr. Burkeen would allegedly place orders en-US for tires with two different Goodyear stores en-US in the county. en-US What he would charge the county would en-US vary from $1,100 to $11,000, and then he en-US would sell them at a discounted rate, cash, en-US Sheriff Loar said.en-US Our belief is that he would use a county en-US fire pickup truck as well as county fire utilien-US -en-US ty trailer, and at times go to the Goodyear en-US store and have it prearranged the amount of en-US tires that he needed, different makes and en-US models. Then he would load those in and en-US take them to a location that were familiar en-US with, and essentially sell them on the black en-US market.en-US Sheriff Loar added that the tires stolen en-US include makes and models of tires that did en-US not and would not fit any of the fire districts en-US vehicles.en-US Every tire that you buy has a unique en-US DOT code, Sheriff Loar continued. Those en-US codes and serial numbers were ultimately en-US matched up with receipts weve gotten from en-US Goodyear.en-US Officials said the scheme began at least as en-US far back as 2014, and may not have been disen-US -en-US covered yet had Mr. Burkeen not retired.en-US Upon his retirement, in the process of en-US other fire district personnel taking over his en-US responsibilities, they noticed inconsistenen-US -en-US cies in the accounting practices, and immeen-US -en-US diately recognized that there was a large en-US amount of tires being purchased with counen-US -en-US ty dollars at a local Goodyear center, Sheriff en-US Loar said. Mr. Burkeen even purchased a en-US very large amount of tires the day before he en-US retired.en-US The sheriff does not suspect knowing en-US involvement by the people who purchased en-US tires from Mr. Burkeen, and doesnt expect en-US any buyers to be arrested.en-US According to our investigation, his comen-US -en-US ment to willing purchasers was that he had a en-US friend or relative in the tire business, and he en-US could get them at cost, Sheriff Loar said. en-US There probably wasnt knowledge that en-US these tires were stolen. I believe they trusted en-US him.en-US Sheriff Loar also doesnt suspect knowing en-US involvement by the Goodyear stores.en-US The tire company has been thoroughly en-US investigated and interviewed, the sheriff en-US said. Their stance was that this is an assisen-US-en-US tant fire chief coming by, purchasing tires, en-US with purchasing power, purchasing authorien-US -en-US ty, nothing seemed out of the norm. He en-US would simply stop by or place an order, and en-US that would be fulfilled. He had a longstanden-US -en-US ing relationship with two different Gooden-US-en-US year tire stores in our county.en-US I dont think there were any red flags en-US there. We have zero indication that the en-US Goodyear tire stores knew of his activity, en-US and that part of the investigation has been en-USclosed.en-US The sheriff said that all the cases his en-US department is investigating involve tires en-US being sold within Florida. If they discover en-US sales outside Florida, federal charges may en-US apply.en-US Asked if Mr. Burkeen had confessed, en-US Sheriff Loar said he did make some stateen-US -en-US ments that indicated to us that he was in fact en-US aware that what he had done was wrong, en-US which only enhanced our investigation.en-US This is an ongoing investigation, Sheriff en-US Loar said. We have clues and tips coming in en-US almost daily.

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

I chose to have en-US Hospice care for him at home. Well, these en-US people are just wonderful. Everyone of en-US them. They were so caring. You could tell en-US that they loved their jobs. They also care en-US deeply for the caregiver and offer assistance. en-US Toward the end, they gave him round-the-en-US clock care, sitting by his bedside. It brings en-US tears to my eyes just remembering what en-US wonderful care they gave him. Thank you en-US Hospice. I know there is a spot in Heaven en-US waiting for you. God Bless You.en-USMore about guns in schoolsen-USAs a retired educator, I would like to en-US respond to the recent misinformed post en-US regarding this subject. This writer, like so en-US many have fallen to the exaggerated hyperen-US -en-US bole, perpetuated by the ideological media en-US and politically driven.en-US The proposal insists nothing about ranen-US-en-US domly bringing guns to schools as insinuaten-US -en-US ed in the post.It would be a voluntary sysen-US -en-US tem only to be awarded to those individuals en-US who have completed an extensive backen-US -en-US ground check (which was the norm just to en-US teach during my career).Once that has been en-US verified, an individual would be required to en-US complete a 140 hour training period prior to en-US entry into the school.Im confident that this en-US training would require weapon security and en-US implementation in the face of any cataen-US-en-US strophic event.en-US During my teaching career, I have know en-US responsible colleagues who owned conen-US -en-US cealed weapons permits. I would trust them en-US implicitly if this proposal was initiated in en-US my school district.In our school, however, it en-US would not be necessary as the School en-US Resource Officer, an active county sheriff en-US who was admired by all, would not have en-US behaved in the same manner as the video of en-US the SRO in the Florida shooting indicated.en-US I am not an NRA member but I do supen-US -en-US port common sense approaches to problem en-US solving and feel individuals should underen-US -en-US stand details of resolutions before rushing to en-US ill informed, emotional conclusions.en-USWhats with the tiny white flies?en-USOur community seems infested with tiny en-US white flies, out lanai screens are peppered en-US with them daily, both front and back. We en-US live next to a small lake, not sure it its conen-US-en-US tributing to our infestation? I called the en-US Indian River Extension office for help, but en-US does anyone know of a solution to get rid of en-US them or is this just a pest problem we need en-US to live with for a short time? We live in en-US Sebastian and I see them all over when I en-US walk the little blond terror. Im curious if en-US others see them too?en-USWe need to do betteren-USFlorida barely made a C average with en-US regard to legislation passed that affects en-US every one of us. And that was being graen-US -en-US cious after what has been taken from educaen-US -en-US tion over the years to make sure big business en-US got their just rewards. According to the en-US FCAT system, that would barely be a passen-US -en-US ing grade. en-US Where are the leaders?en-US Surely we can find more responsible leaden-US-en-US ers in all of Florida who would work to en-US achieve the goals we are desperately in need en-US of in the areas of water quality, smart en-US growth, gun control, assistance for seniors en-US and Veterans and quality education to fill en-US the needs of the population growth being en-US experienced in Florida.en-US Voting is a privilege. en-US Use it wisely.en-US An opinion editorial by former Judge en-US Ashley Moody, candidate for Florida en-US Attorney General en-USFen-USlorida has always drawn seniors with en-US its warm weather and white sandy en-US beaches.And, unfortunately, where en-US seniors go, fraudsters follow to steal their en-US hard-earned retirement savings.As a en-US former federal prosecutor and having en-US served over a decade as a circuit judge, I en-US know as threats evolve, we must evolve en-US with them to protect seniors across en-US Florida. en-US Increasingly, we have seen that the en-US fraudsters no longer need to be here to en-US prey on seniors. Fraudsters can now be en-US sitting across the country or even across en-US the world and make themselves look like en-US they are calling from a government agency en-US or a specific area code. In the last five en-US years, law enforcement has seen a en-US proliferation of scams directed at seniors en-US that are all too often successful. The en-US scams run the gamut of threatening arrest en-US or government action if money is not en-US immediately wired to promising winen-US -en-US nings, jackpots, or refunds if a senior en-US provides personal or financial informaen-US -en-US tion, or prepays taxes or fees.One en-USexample, en-US fraudsters posing en-US as IRS workers en-US demanding tax en-US payments that are en-US not and were not en-US due have victimen-US -en-US ized 12,716 en-US victims who have en-US collectively paid en-US over $63 million en-US to fraudsters since en-US October 2013. en-US Such scams can be easily avoided with vigen-US -en-US ilance. en-US First, if what is being offered sounds too en-US good to be true, it likely is. Never give en-US personal or financial information over the en-US telephone to someone you do not know. If en-US a caller asks you for that information, it is en-US a scam. en-US Second, always use common sense en-US when dealing with someone that you do en-US not know. Stop and verify the information en-US before you send or wire money to anyone. en-US Call the government agency, a family en-US member, or someone you trust first. Do en-US not simply call back the number provided en-US by the caller.

en-US 7 en-USers. For me this is not about light duty. It en-US has become about light duty, but that was en-US not my original request.en-US I originally went to Chief King with my en-US husband about two years ago to discuss en-US my options in order to plan a pregnancy. I en-US wanted to see how I was going to be able to en-US do this, and keep my job, and be safe.en-US Ms. Morris said Chief King suggested to en-US her that she plan her pregnancy for the en-US end of the year, so she could use her 12 en-US leave days and then have another 12 days en-US at the start of the new year.en-US I dont know who can plan a pregnancy en-US like that, Ms. Morris said. It just doesnt en-US work that way. She said that she and her en-US husband decided to wait, to not get pregen-US -en-US nant, and see if anything would change. en-US Nothing changed, she said, so she and her en-US husband decided in the last year that they en-US had waited long enough.en-US When I conceived, I reached back out en-US to Chief King ... and was denied a second en-US time, Ms. Morris said.en-US Mr. OConnor, of the firefighters union, en-US told the commissioners We have a female en-US who is eight months pregnant and is en-US expected to go into a burning building and en-US perform firefighting duties. Let that sink en-US in for a minute.en-US The countys lack of a light duty pregen-US-en-US nancy policy is bad, because the potential en-US hazards faced by firefighters including en-US physical exertion, hypothermia, and expoen-US-en-US sure to carbon monoxide and other toxic en-US gasses become magnified when we are en-US talking about a pregnant female and an en-US unborn child, Mr. OConnor said.en-US The county has refused to work with en-US the union and has denied multiple en-US requests for pregnancy accommodations en-US on the grounds that it is bound by the conen-US -en-US tract. We proposed a pregnancy policy en-US early in the last contract negotiation sesen-US-en-US sion, but the county discarded it.en-US Manatee County and Indian River en-US County are the only ones that dont have en-US these provisions in place. Manatee County en-US does not have any female firefighters, so it en-US doesnt even have a need to create a pregen-US-en-US nancy policy. That puts Indian River en-US County dead last in the state of Florida. en-US Even the Indian River County Sheriffs en-US Office has a light duty pregnancy policy.en-US We recently lost three female firefighten-US -en-US ers to other departments due to a lack of en-US any light duty pregnancy policy. We are en-US asking the Board of County Commissionen-US -en-US ers to perform a gender disparity study en-US and create a light duty policy for pregnant en-US firefighters with immediate effect.en-US Ive dedicated the last 10 years of my en-US life to you guys, to the people of this counen-US -en-US ty, Ms. Morris told the commissioners. I en-US risk a lot, on a regular basis. I am eight en-US months pregnant. Its getting hard. Its en-US dangerous to my co-workers for me to en-US have to run calls with them.en-US While the commissioners, under advice en-US from County Attorney Dylan Reingold, en-US did not decide the issue at the March 6 en-US meeting, Ms. Morris was finally given a en-US light duty assignment on March 26, after en-US she went into pre-term labor at 31 weeks, en-US and her doctor wrote a letter asking that en-US she be placed on light duty until her en-US scheduled caesarean section May 13. Sprinkles is a three and a half-year old spayed female black mixed breed cat.   She has sprinkles of white on her shoulders. Sprinkles en-UScame to the Humane Society as a rescue from St. Croix last Octoen-US -en-US ber. She is very active and loves to play in the cat tunnel or chase en-US the laser dot. She even drinks from a dripping faucet. en-US Sprinkles will sit in your lap, but she wants ALL the attention; she en-US will swat at other cats.

en-US 8 Earn 10% interest Secured by real estate Short or Long term Carlson Family, LLC Marshall Copley 772-882-8149 Successful real-estate Investors since 2005 VERO BEACH The world will soon en-USlearn what was uncovered during four years en-US of investigation at the Old Vero Ice Age Site. en-US This month, Dr. James Adovasio, will be en-US presenting the findings at the annual Socien-US -en-US ety of American Archaeology meeting in en-US Washington, D.C.en-US The conclusions and plans will be en-US revealed first, however, to a Vero Beach en-US audience during two free one-hour lectures en-US at the Emerson Center on April 7.en-US The Old Vero Ice Age site is along the en-US canal just south of Aviation Road, between en-US the County Administration building and en-US the Vero Beach Regional Airport.en-US While the dig at the existing site is essenen-US-en-US tially over, OVIASC Board Member Mary en-US Singer told Hometown News we might end en-US up going right next to it. When you dig in en-US one little area, it is a matter of not only en-US expertise but also some luck regarding what en-US you hit. You cant just dig up a whole acre en-US you dig up one small area. The site is about en-US 13 acres, and we may dig again somewhere en-US in that same site, though not in the exact en-US same hole.en-US Dr. Adovasio has been the Principal en-US Investigator at the site since 2013. He led a en-US group of archaeologists seeking answers to en-US many questions, including what the location en-US was like 100 years ago and as far back as en-US 13,000 years ago, during the Pleistocene en-US period.en-US Local citizens formed the Old Vero Ice en-US Age Sites Committee, or OVIASC, in 2010. en-US One of the most exciting discoveries from en-US the research OVIASC led was that a partial en-US skeleton found at the site, named Vero Man, en-US was actually a woman.en-US That is true, Randy Old, chair of the en-US project, told Hometown News last year. en-US Were better at figuring those things out en-US now than we were at the beginning.en-US The Emerson Center lectures will explore en-US how that discovery was uncovered, as well en-US as other mysteries that may be explained by en-US the research. Dr. Adovasio told Hometown en-US News that the Vero Beach site is highly sigen-US-en-US nificant.en-US First, one hundred years ago it was the en-US first site to seriously challenge the wisdom en-US that humans and ice age animals were not en-US contemporaries, Dr. Adovasio said. The en-US claim that humans were in the New World en-US at the end of the Pleistocene was viewed as en-US heretical to say the least.en-US Second, the current excavations at Vero en-US are at the literal cutting edge of archaeologien-US -en-US cal data recovery and documentation. This en-US project, according to visiting professionals, en-US is as good as modern archaeology gets.en-US Third, because of the extreme precision en-US of the excavations, data from Vero promises en-US to illuminate the remote past of the first Floen-US -en-US ridians as no site ever excavated to date.en-US Dr. Andy Hemmings, lead on-site archaeen-US -en-US ologist, told Hometown News The material en-US were finding is very exotic to the site. en-US Theres no local available stone for making en-US the tools that were so important to these en-US people at various times. Were seeing mateen-US -en-US rials brought in from between Orlando and en-US Ocala, at least 130 miles away. It tells us that en-US we absolutely have people here in the Pleisen-US-en-US tocene, seemingly associated with butcheren-US -en-US ing, killing, burning, 13,000 years ago or en-US older.en-US Dr. Hemmings believes that people came en-US to what is now Vero Beach during the Pleisen-US -en-US tocene period, 13,000 years ago, for the en-US wealth of animal and plant species found en-US here, on the order of 180 different ones: en-US mammoth, mastodon, a host of really interen-US -en-US esting extinct things from the end of the en-US Pleistocene. Three kinds of sloths, the dire en-US wolf, the tapir, two kinds of llamas, the en-US American lion, the saber cat, all the highen-US -en-US lights that fire peoples imagination.en-US It was a bit of an oasis in the true sense of en-US the word, Dr. Hemmings said. Thats why en-US we see the wealth of plant and animals, and en-US we think thats what drew people here.en-US In 2017, over 300 bison bone fragments en-US were found at the site, adding to a remarken-US -en-US able collection.en-US From the beginning, Vero was one of the en-US more infamous archaeological sites in North en-US America because it was seen as such a threat en-US to the then perceived wisdom that no en-US humans had lived here during the last Ice en-US Age, Dr. Adovasio said.en-US You can be among the first to find out en-US what else was learned during the four years en-US of the Vero Dig by attending either of the en-US two free lectures April 7at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.en-US The Emerson Center is located at 1590 en-US 27th Ave, Vero Beach.

The goal is to build and celebrate en-US literacy.en-US Moonshot Moment is a community-wide en-US campaign started by The Learning Alliance en-US and the school district in 2012, aiming to en-US have 90 percent of all students reading on en-US grade-level by third grade.en-US The Moonshot Moment campaign has en-US grown to include over sixty community en-US nonprofits and businesses working together en-US to improve youth literacy, a consistent preen-US -en-US dictor of future success.en-US As of the 2017 school grades released by en-US the state, only 58 percent of county third en-US graders were reading at grade proficient en-US level, far below the target of 70 percent. That en-US target rises even higher to 90 percent for en-US 2018.en-US Third grade is the key transition from en-US learning to read to reading to learn, says en-US the Moonshot Moment website. Literacy is en-US at the heart of economic development and is en-US the single factor that underpins most social en-US issues, with some states even determining en-US the number of jails they will build on third-en-US grade literacy.en-US Specific goals of Moonshot Moment, in en-US addition to expanding literacy, include en-US improving kindergarten readiness and en-US school attendance, training teachers with en-US research-based techniques to teach reading, en-US and eliminating the summer slide.en-US For more information about the literacy en-US festival, contact Michele Holiday at lena30@en-US or Willie Finklin, wfinklin@en-US, or call (877) 548-en-US READ (7323).en-US For more information about Moonshot en-US Moment, visit en-US or contact Marie OBrien, mobrien@theen-US-en-US Gifford Middle School is located at 4530 en-US 28th Court, Vero Beach.en-USMoonshot Moment en-US Family Literacy Festivalen-USBy Mike en-USan River Habitats 371st new home.en-US Work began on the Grace Meadows Habien-US-en-US tat community in 2008, and today features en-US 34 homes, with another 34 currently being en-US built.en-US The community is in the heart of Fellsen-US -en-US mere, with one three bedroom houses en-US from 572 -1,408 square feet.en-US I am so proud of this project, Habitat en-US president Andy Bowler said.

en-US 11 en-USonline for the number to call. If the caller en-US tries to prevent you or dissuade you from en-US verifying what he has told you, it is a scam. en-US Third, government agencies will not en-US contact you by telephone first and they will en-US not threaten to bring in the police, other en-US law enforcement, or otherwise arrest you. en-US And, the government will send you en-US something in writing first demanding en-US payment before reaching out to you. If the en-US government has not written you or the en-US caller threatens you, it is a scam. en-US Fourth, if the caller says you can only pay en-US a certain way, and that way seems odd, it is en-US a scam. Fraudsters often ask their victims en-US to wire money, put money on a gift card, en-US load money onto a cash reload card, or en-US otherwise require a specific payment en-US method, other than a check. They will en-US claim it is urgent and try to justify the en-US specific method. Do not fall for it. en-US Fifth, never pre-pay taxes, transfer fees, en-US or other expenses in exchange for a en-US promised jackpot, sweepstakes win, or en-US refund. Legitimate organizations do not en-US and will not ask for prepayments. If a en-US prepayment is required, it is a scam. en-US Almost as important as avoiding being en-US scammed, is to report any attempted scam en-US immediately.

The Timucua Indians inhabited the en-US coasts of Florida at that time and they en-US enjoyed the local bounty of seafood, bear, en-US deer, turkey and alligators. The Spanish en-US called them dragons. en-US Their most popular and plentiful source en-US of food must have been oysters, because of en-US the number of oyster shell mounds found en-US along the coast with many more than 40 en-US feet high. Oysters were so plentiful the state en-US used ground oyster shells to build the en-US highway system. en-US Cooking was done over an open fire that en-US had crisscrossed strips of wood resembling en-US a grill. They were called Barbacoa. Meats en-US and fish were smoked on the wooden grills. en-US This cooking technique developed over the en-US years to be called BBQ. Caribbean pirates en-US used the Barbacoa to cook their food when en-US on land; oh, and drink their rum yo-ho, en-US yo-ho! Some historians believe that is where en-US the term Buccaneers came from. en-US Now what about the Spanish and food? en-US It all started when Columbus first came to en-US the New World and introduced foods from en-US Spain and Europe. He also gathered foods en-US from local natives in the Caribbean as well en-US as from Cuba. All this bounty was brought en-US to Florida with Ponce De Leon. en-US Local natives grew potatoes, corn, en-US melons, a type of wild celery, and onions. en-US Are you ready? The Spanish introduced en-US pigs, goats, lamb, chickens, horses, and beef en-US cattle. Thats not all. They also brought olive en-US oil, wine, cheese, tomatoes, peppers, en-US lemons, oranges, peaches, basil, oregano en-US and thyme. The Spanish introduced wheat en-US bread to Florida. Since wheat couldnt grow en-US here, they copied the local native corn en-US fritters, which eventually became known as en-US hushpuppies. en-US While the Spanish explored Florida, the en-US soldiers would eat oranges they had en-US brought with them spitting out the seeds as en-US they walked. Throughout the state there en-US are pockets of sour orange trees growing, en-US left over from the Spanish soldiers. Maybe en-US you have one in your yard. We do!en-US They also turned the cattle loose to roam en-US the state. Florida is the second largest en-US producer of cattle in the U.S. During the en-US late 1700s, cattle ranching took root. Men of en-US Scottish decent were recruited from en-US Georgia and South Carolina to find the en-US cattle. They were not called cowboys, but en-US cow herders. They were also called Florida en-US Crackers, which is a Scottish term for en-US someone who likes to play jokes and be en-US rowdy.en-US Florida has so much food history and en-US much of it is due to the Spanish. Here is a en-US simple seafood chowder recipe the Spanish en-US and early Florida settlers made.

One of the most en-US practical ways is through the use of roses. en-US Roses are beautiful flowers that symbolize en-US love and friendship. Imagine yourself en-US entertaining your friends in a lovely alcove en-US surrounded by colorful flowers. Roses are en-US relatively easy to grow and are a great en-US choice because they will often grow where en-US other flowers wont because of Floridas en-US intense summer sun. You can buy roses as en-US either a container plant or as bare root-en-US stock. en-US Roses can be successfully planted in en-US either containers or in the ground. In either en-US case, the plants should be in well-drained en-US soil in a sunny location. If you plant your en-US treasures in the ground, be sure the soil en-US drains well. Dig a hole about 15 18 inches en-US wide and 18 inches deep. Put a layer of en-US gravel on the bottom of the hole. This is to en-US allow drainage so water drains away from en-US the root system. The same would apply if en-US you plant your roses in a container. The en-US next step is to prepare the soil you are going en-US to use to plant your roses. You should use a en-US mix of a good quality potting soil with en-US around half the mixture composed of en-US organic matter such as mulch or peat. You en-US can also use some bone meal with your soil en-US mixture. Now, its finally time to plant your en-US prize. Carefully remove the plant from its en-US original container. Place the plant in your en-US prepared hole so the top of soil layer on the en-US plant is the same level as the surrounding en-US soil. Fill the gap underneath the plant with en-US your prepared soil mixture. Now, fill the en-US gaps around the remaining parts of the en-US plant and pack down lightly. You are now en-US ready to water in your newly planted rose. en-US OK, you finally have your roses planted en-US and they are bursting with color, now you en-US need to do some periodic maintenance to en-US maintain that beauty. Since we live in such a en-US humid climate, certain diseases such as en-US black powdery mildew and black spot can en-US both be a common problem. Both diseases en-US are much easier to control if you prevent en-US them happening in the first place. Once en-US established, both are very difficult to get rid en-US of. Although there are many products on en-US the market that are used for disease control en-US on roses, Orthenex reigns as the king. The en-US product controls not only diseases but also en-US controls insect infestation as well. If you are en-US interested in an all-natural cure for fungus, en-US how about baking soda. Thats right, baking en-US soda. Plain ordinary baking soda added at en-US the rate of 3 teaspoons per gallon of water. en-US You then can add a small amount of mild en-US dish detergent to the mix to act as a en-US spreader sticker. This will work as a en-US preventive measure but will not work well if en-US an infection is present. Be sure not to make en-US your mix too strong as damage to your en-US roses could result. en-US With all the remedies that we have at our en-US disposal for controlling rose problems, en-US probably the best way is prevention. One en-US way is to avoid watering late in the day so en-US the leaves of the plant do not stay wet all en-US night. Also it is important to have good soil en-US drainage. en-US Roses are heavy feeders and like a good en-US supply of food. Roses should be fed at least en-US once a month. You can use a good quality en-US commercial food or you can use your own en-US mix, which should consist of one cup of en-US bone meal, one cup cottonseed meal, en-US one-half cup blood meal, one-half cup en-US fish-meal and one-half cup Epsom salts. en-US You can spread this mix around each plant en-US and then water in. en-USJoe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape. en-US Send e-mails to hometowngarden@gmail.en-US com or visit his Web site www.hometownen-US -en-US GARDEN NOOK en-USJOE ZELENAK en-USOuten-USFrom page 16 en-USSeeen-US en-US OUTen-US page 18


en-US 18 en-USAre you ready for the first major of the year? en-USAen-USfter you finish reading this column, en-US you will need to head to the store. en-US To properly enjoy the first major of en-US the year, you will need a few things.en-US Grab some extra sharp cheddar cheese en-US (10-12 ounces), spreadable cream cheese, a en-US large jar of diced pimentos, black pepper, a en-US loaf of white bread, powdered sugar, tea en-US bags, mint sprigs and a bottle of your en-US favorite bourbon. The last item is not a en-US requirement, but some of you may prefer to en-US enjoy a libation. Sweet tea works well for en-US those of you who prefer a non-alcoholic en-US drink.en-US For me, nothing rings in the beginning of en-US Spring quite like The Masters. With todays en-US television coverage, we now get to enjoy en-US every hole of this masterpiece of a golf en-US course.en-US Thanks to my childhood, The Masters is en-US my favorite tournament. As a child my late en-US parents would let me skip school and the en-US three of us would drive from our home in en-US Warner Robins, Georgia to Augusta. It en-US became a ritual every Tuesday of Masters en-US week. For just $5 each wed lace up our best en-US walking shoes and trek onto the hallowed en-US grounds of Augusta National.en-US I was only eight when I attended my first en-US Masters practice round. The place had an en-US aura about it. The flowers, the perfectly en-US groomed fairways and greens all combined en-US in jaw-dropping beauty. I remember how en-US green everything was with the breathtaking en-US coloring from the flowering trees splashed en-US in.en-US Because it was a practice round I was en-US able to meet and talk with most of the en-US players teeing it up each year. Every year I en-US would find myself picking one of those that en-US I met and pulling for him to slip on the en-US Green Jacket come Sunday. Last year was en-US special as my friend, Sergio Garcia en-US triumphed.en-US I felt incredible joy along with Jack en-US Nicklaus when he won for the sixth time in en-US 1986. I found myself remembering that day en-US a decade or more before when he promised en-US my mom that hed sign her ticket, and en-US looked for, and found, her in a crowd, en-US telling everyone that he promised her first. en-US My mom, at all of five-foot tall was not easy en-US to find in a large crowd, but Jack was en-US persistent. en-US One year, I met Lee Elder, the first en-US African-American to play in the Masters, en-US and thinking then, Why would anyone not en-US want this fine gentleman to play in their en-US tournament?. en-US The reasons many of us love The Masters en-US are numerous. For some seeing the same en-US course, and watching todays great players en-US conquer the same hole that Gene Sarazen en-US double-eagled to win in 1935 has a familiar en-US warmth to it. Its like seeing an old, dear en-US friend once a year. Its the only time well en-US see him, but we look forward to it knowing en-US that moment marks the beginning of the en-US best part of the year.en-US Some of us love the tradition that goes en-US with The Masters. Its the only tournament en-US that gives a spot in the field for every past en-US champion and starts play with a ceremonial en-US tee shot from our games living legends. It is en-US a fitting way to honor those who have en-US triumphed where so many of us only dream en-US of walking.en-US Now for the reasons that you need to en-US head to the store. One my favorite Masters en-US traditions is enjoying a pimento cheese en-US sandwich. Since most of us will not be at en-US Augusta National this weekend, well have en-US to make our own. To honor the tournament en-US I love so much, one that taught me so much en-US and that brings back a flood of fond en-US memories and a few tears to go with them, I en-US give to you my own secret recipe for those en-US famous pimento cheese sandwiches. en-US Masters Pimento Cheese Sandwich: one en-US stick of extra sharp cheddar cheese (10-12 en-US ounces), grated; 4 ounces or more soft, en-US spreadable cream cheese; diced pimentos, en-US not well drained; black pepper to taste. Mix en-US and serve on your choice of bread. I prefer en-US to cut the sandwich into triangle-shaped en-US quarters. en-US To drink, one must have some good, old en-US southern sweet tea or perhaps a Mint Julep. en-US My favorite is easy to make. Take 4 fresh en-US mint sprigs, 1 teaspoon of powdered sugar, en-US and 2 teaspoons of water and muddle them en-US in a glass. Fill the glass with crushed ice and en-US then add about 2-3 ounces of your favorite en-US bourbon. Stir and enjoy.en-US While you are enjoying your sandwiches en-US and beverage, flip on the television and en-US watch the years first major. I will be en-US watching along with you, with a smile on en-US my face and a tear in my eye as I think en-US about those wonderful days so long ago, en-US spent with my mother and father. en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.
