In another cost-saving and pro-environen-US-en-US ment move, in January FPL retired the St. Johns en-US River Power Park, the largest of three coal-fired en-US plants FPL is phasing out.en-US We are committed to advancing affordable en-USSolar paying dividends en-US for FPL customers en-USSebastian en-US doubles en-US stormen-US water fees en-USSEBASTIAN The Sebastian City en-US Council voted May 9 to raise stormwater en-US fees.en-US According to the city, the purpose of en-US the resolution that the council adopted en-US unanimously is to generate an additionen-US -en-US al $1,000,000 for the Sebastian Stormen-US -en-US water Utility Fund by increasing the en-US Equivalent Residential Unit fee from $5 en-US per month to $10 per month, doubling en-US total stormwater revenues to $2,000,000. en-US The increase is due to a need to stabilize en-US the stormwater fund balance, generate en-US additional revenue which will help the en-US city continue stormwater maintenance en-US programs, replace equipment, and preen-US-en-US pare for future capital investment.en-US This increase will be effective en-US throughout the corporate limits of the en-US City of Sebastian. The stormwater fee is en-US collected by the Indian River Tax Colen-US-en-US lector on the annual tax bill. Failure to en-US pay the assessment will cause a tax ceren-US -en-US tificate to be issued against the property en-US which, the city warned, may result in a en-US loss of title.en-US In arguing for the increase, City Manen-US -en-US ager Joe Griffin said Sebastian has fallen en-US behind on major stormwater projects. en-US He said doubling the stormwater fee en-US would, over time, pay for a potential $18 en-US million seawall project.en-US Mr. Griffin added that if there is a seaen-US-en-US wall failure, it would take about two en-US years to receive permit approval and ten en-US years to replace the seawall.

en-US 3 en-USINDIAN RIVER COUNTY Residents en-US packed the Indian River County School en-US Board meeting on May 22, most opposing en-US the superintendents decision to stop paying en-US for busing to after school programs at Gifen-US -en-US ford Youth Achievement Center, Dasie en-US Bridgewater Hope Center, and the Boys & en-US Girls Clubs.en-US A letter sent from the school district to en-US the leadership of those organizations read, en-US in part, Students that are currently particien-US -en-US pating in your program will continue to be en-US provided transportation through the end of en-US the current school year, however, once the en-US annual agreement expires at the end of the en-US 2017-2018 school year, courtesy rides will en-US no longer be provided. Please accept this leten-US-en-US ter as timely notification of the school disen-US -en-US tricts decision to non-renew the transportaen-US -en-US tion agreement.en-US According to figures provided by Jennifer en-US Idlette, the school districts Transportation en-US Director, the annual amounts in question en-US include roughly $8,800 for Dasie Hope, en-US $27,350 for GYAC, $8,550 for the Vero en-US Beach Boys & Girls Club, $19,800 for the en-US Sebastian Boys & Girls Club, and $14,165 en-US for the Fellsmere Boys & Girls Club. The en-US annual total for the estimated 268 students en-US using the bus service is about $78,670.en-US When the school board meeting began at en-US 6 p.m., the room was packed with parents, en-US teachers, and nonprofit representatives who en-US wanted to speak and had filled out speaker en-US cards. Board discussion of this item began at en-US about 7 p.m., with public input not starting en-US until after 9 p.m., well after many hopeful en-US speakers had left, unheard.en-US School Board member Laura Zorc en-US appeared as the momentary hero of the en-US nonprofit groups, receiving praise from en-US speaker after speaker for meeting with them en-US and seeking a solution that would continue en-US the busing.en-US Superintendent Dr. Mark Rendell said en-US that the free transportation to the nonprofen-US -en-US its had been identified by Ms. Idlette as a en-US potential area for savings. Dr. Rendell said en-US that Ms. Idlette had informed the three nonen-US -en-US profits last spring that the district would no en-US longer be able to provide this service at no en-US cost.en-US Before this decision is finalized by the en-US superintendent and the director of transen-US-en-US portation, I wanted us to have a board disen-US -en-US cussion of the cause and effects of the en-US defunding of the nonprofit transportation en-US courtesy stops, Ms. Zorc said.en-US After carefully looking into the cause and en-US effects of this cut, I am hopeful that we can en-US collectively seek other options for savings en-US and cuts with lesser impact on students. I en-US ask that we completely abandon the idea of en-US defunding the nonprofit transportation as en-US an option.en-US Ms. Zorc then outlined the important en-US benefits to the community of all three nonen-US -en-US profits.en-US Long-term, is this budget cut worth the en-US price? she asked. For our at risk students, en-US making the dream work means the entire en-US community coming together in partneren-US -en-US ship.en-US Ms. Zorc added that providing courtesy en-US transportation to these nonprofits after en-US school, providing mentoring, tutoring, and en-US after school supervision in a safe, loving, en-US and learning environment, was an example en-US of the board and school system playing its en-US part. She said the $78,000 was a small price en-US to pay for the immeasurable amount of lifeen-US -en-US long benefits our students are receiving, en-US adding that the three organizations have a en-US combined waiting list of nearly 200 stuen-US -en-US dents, who they cant serve due to lack of en-US funding.en-US Adam Bollinger, Chairman of GYAC, said en-US that when Ms. Idlette presented the figures en-US to the group, she said take it or leave it. en-US There is no conversation about this, it is en-US just being jammed down our throat, Mr. en-US Bollinger said. Mrs. Zorc is the only one en-US who has decided to actually meet with us en-US and talk about these things.en-US Anthony Brown, head of the Indian River en-US County NAACP, seized on a discussion en-US from earlier in the evening about the disen-US -en-US tricts legal fees. Referring to the ongoing en-US lawsuit over school desegregation and other en-US incomplete mandates from the federal en-US court, Mr. Brown said Youre close to a milen-US -en-US lion dollars playing with me but youre cryen-US -en-US ing over $78,000.en-US Youre talking about 12 years youve had en-US this contract (where the nonprofits were en-US supposed to be charged), Mr. Brown said. en-US Im talking about 50 years youve had a en-US contract you didnt live up to. So lets not en-US play this game.en-US Dasie Hope, GYAC, and Boys and Girls en-US Clubs take care of the least of our children. en-US Your school board would not be doing as en-US well as it is doing academically and socially en-US without these programs. You owe them. en-US This is socially wrong, economically wrong, en-US spiritually wrong.en-US Elizabeth Thomason, Executive Director en-US of the Boys & Girls Club of Indian River en-USCounty, said her organization has had a very en-US positive relationship with the school disen-US-en-US trict.en-US We provide an extension of the school en-US day by helping children complete their en-US homework and participate in quality proen-US-en-US gramming with caring staff and volunteers, en-US Ms. Thomason said, listing many benefits of en-US their programs to the performance of stuen-US -en-US dents in school.en-US We provide this service to the children en-US who need us most, including hiring a full en-US time career counselor to work with at-risk en-US high school youth, to supplement what she en-US said were overworked and understaffed en-US guidance counselors. Ms. Thomason said en-US their goal was to help kids graduate on time en-US and with a plan for the future. Charging us en-US for transportation will diminish our ability en-US to provide quality programs. In the upcomen-US -en-US ing school year we are providing a rent-free en-US place for the school district to work with en-US suspended students, despite the cost that we en-US will incur. We have no intention of passing en-US these costs along to you, because we see you en-US as a partner.en-US As the agenda item was a discussion en-US item and not an action item, no vote was en-US taken, meaning that the superintendents en-US decision to start charging the three organien-US -en-US zations for bus service will take effect with en-US the beginning of the next school year.

en-US 9 en-USclean energy the right way, said FPL Presien-US -en-US dent and CEO Eric Silagy. We are building en-US some of the lowest-cost universal solar ever en-US in the country, which keeps costs down for en-US our customers. The completion of these en-US newest plants demonstrates that it is possien-US -en-US ble to be both clean and affordable, bringing en-US numerous economic and environmental en-US benefits to our customers and the commuen-US-en-US nities we serve.en-US The FPL Blue Cypress Solar Energy Cenen-US-en-US ter is the second solar center in Indian River en-US County. It will generate 74.5 megawatts of en-US solar energy per year.en-US FPL says its average bill, about $99 per en-US month, is now more than 30 percent below en-US the national average of $139 per month, and en-US 20 percent lower than the Florida average of en-US $120 per month.en-US When the solar panels were installed in en-US July, 2017, Florida Audubon Executive en-US Director Eric Draper told Hometown News en-US that his organization gives an enthusiastic en-US thumbs-up to FPLs growth in solar energy.en-US Our members love what FPL is doing en-US with these solar facilities all over the state, en-US said Mr. Draper. Solar uses no water. Water en-US is one of our biggest challenges, so we have en-US to come up with things like this. This is not en-US just an electricity issue, this is a water issue.en-US With this site and the seven others that en-US were doing, we will be tripling the amount en-US of solar that well be installing here in Florien-US -en-US da, said Mr. Silagy. Its an amazing thing to en-US see these sites come out of the ground in just en-US a few short months.en-US Combined, Mr. Silagy said, the eight new en-US solar plants will produce megawatts of en-US solar energy. Thats enough power for en-US 120,000 Florida homes.en-US Florida Audubons director also emphaen-US-en-US sized the benefits to the environment.en-US The land around these power plants proen-US-en-US vides a great opportunity to take fields that en-US for a long time have been producing good en-US agricultural products, and give a little of that en-US back to nature, Mr. Draper said. Florida en-US Audubon has entered into an agreement en-US with FPL at these solar sites to create en-US bird-friendly and pollinator-friendly habien-US-en-US tats. Imagine that field full of birds and buten-US -en-US terflies and dragonflies and all the beautiful en-US creatures nature made. Its not just about en-US water and electricity. Its also about producen-US-en-US ing beautiful habitat for birds and butterflies en-US and people.en-US FPL now has 14 solar plants in operation en-US across Florida in what it calls one of the en-US largest expansions of solar energy in U.S. en-US history. The company is the largest generaen-US -en-US tor of solar energy in Florida. The result, the en-US company says, is lower customer bills than a en-US decade ago.en-US The eight FPL solar plants that came on en-US line in 2018 are projected to generate more en-US than $100 million in customer savings en-US during their operating lifetime, over and en-US above the cost of constructing and operaten-US -en-US ing the plants.en-US In addition, FPL is developing a new baten-US-en-US tery storage technology that would expand en-US the benefits of solar even further. By increasen-US -en-US ing solar energy storage capacity, one of the en-US greatest challenges to solar energy, FPL says en-US it will be able to increase the amount of solar en-US energy a plant can deliver to the grid by en-US more than half a million kilowatt-hours per en-US year.en-US Once the battery storage technology is en-US perfected, FPL predicts that solar will proen-US -en-US vide more energy nationwide than coal and en-US oil combined.en-US FPL is also installing small-scale solar en-US arrays throughout the state, most funded by en-US voluntary resident contributions. In April, en-US the Sebastian City Council approved a new en-US solar project to be installed at the Splash Pad en-US at Riverview Park.en-US The agreement was made under FPLs en-US SolarNow program, which FPL describes as en-US an easy way to bring clean solar energy to en-US your communities.en-US Our SolarNow program allows customen-US-en-US ers to voluntarily contribute $9 a month to en-US support solar projects in the community, en-US said FPL Senior Product Development en-US Manager Anuj Chokshi. We utilize those en-US contributions to build solar projects within en-US the service territory at no cost to our hosts. en-US In Sebastian, we have over 100 residents en-US currently participating in the program. en-US FPL customers may volunteer to support en-US the program by paying the $9 fee on their en-US monthly bill. Customers may also choose to en-US not participate.en-US The Solar Canopy will use solar panels to en-US capture sunlight and generate electricity en-US that is fed into the local grid.en-US FPL President Silagy noted how far Florien-US-en-US das solar industry has come, winning conen-US -en-US verts along the way.en-US We continue this march in a new direcen-US -en-US tion for how we produce power, despite the en-US fact that it hasnt always been popular, Mr. en-US Silagy said. In 2001, FPL burned more oil en-USthan any utility in America to generate elecen-US-en-US tricity, 41 million barrels of oil. All of it was en-US imported. Much of it came from places that en-US frankly dont support the United States. en-US Places where we send our finest young men en-US and women to go and defend our oil interen-US -en-US ests. We made a decision as a company that en-US we were going to change the way that we en-US produce power. We made a decision that we en-US were going to embrace new technologies en-US and wean ourselves off of foreign oil.en-US Over time, weve changed, quite a bit. en-US Last year we burned almost no oil at all. We en-US switched to domestically produced natural en-US gas, we expanded our nuclear facilities, and en-US we moved to solar. Because of that, we dont en-US have to rely on bringing oil in from places en-US where we shouldnt have to be fighting for en-US it.en-US For more information, visit en-US www.FPL.en-US com/solar.

en-US 10 en-USSen-USomeone, please, turn off the faucet. en-US Tell Mother Nature that we have had en-US enough rain! While we will now see en-US greener fairways and lakes with water in en-US them, we will also lose 50 yards of roll on en-US our drives (insert sad face here).en-US As the rain washed out yet another en-US planned round, one of my buddies en-US wondered aloud why it is that some courses en-US or holes drain well and others do not. Most en-US of us dont ever think about what is under en-US the course. The myriad of catch basins and en-US drainage pipes installed before the first en-US blade of grass grew on the course is usually en-US of no concern. When the rains do fall, en-US however, all of these work in concert with en-US the design of the course to rid each hole of en-US water as quickly as possible. en-US My late friend, Charles Ankron, was an en-US internationally acclaimed golf course en-US architect. I used to do some side work for en-US him and I remember asking him that very en-US question.en-US There are three factors that affect course en-US drainage, he explained. Site, soil and the en-US client. en-US The first factor, site, varies from course to en-US course. Some courses are located in areas en-US with little rainfall, strong drying winds and en-US an abundance of sunshine. Of course these en-US courses drain well.en-US In Florida, courses are normally subject en-US to a lot of rain, and while we do have strong en-US winds and abundant sunshine, we suffer en-US from high humidity. The evaporation rate is en-US much lower than youd expect. We also en-US suffer from not having much elevation en-US change. Water simply has no desire to run en-US anywhere.en-US Soil content is next. The greater the en-US amount of topsoil that a course has, the en-US better it can handle a downpour. Topsoil en-US will absorb a large amount of water, and the en-US thicker that layer, the more water the en-US course can handle. en-US However, it is the subsurface soil stratum en-US has the biggest influence on course en-US drainage. A course with a sandy subsurface en-US will have an excellent absorption rate. A en-US course with a very sandy sub-base course en-US can stay open when some of the exclusive en-US private clubs in the area have to shut down. en-US Thats because it absorbs water so well.en-US Courses unlucky enough to have a hard en-US subsurface, such as marl or sandstone, will en-US need more lakes, more storm drains and en-US more collection areas for the water that the en-US course will shed during a storm or wet en-US season. en-US Probably the biggest factor, aside from en-US nature, is the client. If the course owner or en-US developer has the money and is sensitive to en-US the golf course, he or she may be willing to en-US spend the money needed to design and en-US build a good drainage system. If the owner en-US simply wants an amenity for the housing en-US development, then chances are that money en-US will not be spent and the course wont drain en-US well.en-US If the soil can en-US absorb an inch of en-US rainfall and it rains en-US two inches, the en-US ground is fighting a en-US losing battle. The high en-US points of the course en-US will absorb the first en-US inch and then the en-US second inch will flow en-US downhill. As that en-US water flows to a low en-US point or a catch basin, en-US it grows exponentially en-US adding itself to the en-US water already en-US accumulating downhill.en-US Most architects use many more drains en-US now than 15 or 20 years ago. I remember a en-US total renovation that Ankrom did where he en-US added 220 additional drains to to capture en-US water. The original early 1970s design had en-US water running a thousand feet before en-US finding a drain. That was changed so that en-US water ran no more than a hundred feet.en-US Modern architects also use nature to help en-US drain the course. Sand retention areas and en-US waste areas have become quite popular. en-US Lakes are used to do three things, disperse en-US water, generate fill for building the course, en-US and storm water storage.en-US The fairways and rough arent the only en-US places that a golf course architect works to en-US drain water from the course. The greens of en-US a modern course have a complicated en-US drainage system built into them as well. en-US Todays modern green is topped with 12 en-US inches of custom topsoil. Under that is four en-US inches of gravel followed by a herringbone en-US system of drainpipes set 20 feet apart. The en-US water that makes it to the drainpipes is en-US taken to a lake, swale, dry well or other low en-US point well away from the green. en-US Thanks to modern irrigation, courses are en-US kept very lush. Unfortunately, sometimes en-US very hard rains follow this and simply adds en-US too much water to the equation.en-US For now Im happy to see the rain. We en-US can always use a few drops. I just need en-US Mother Nature to turn it off by the en-US weekend.en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.

en-US 14 en-USThe food that helped win D-Dayen-USDen-US-Day, June 6, was a very special en-US moment in history when 160,000 en-US troops landed on the beaches of en-US Normandy, creating the turning point for en-US the allies in WWII. en-US To accomplish this great victory, the allies en-US needed a special food that had to be en-US light-weight, nutritious and have the ability en-US to generate lots of energy to keep the troops en-US ready to fight. The Hershey Chocolate Co. en-US was approached in 1937 to create what was en-US later called the D ration bar. It had to be en-US high in energy, withstand high heat, and en-US weigh 4 ounces.en-US What they created isnt the Hershey bar en-US we know today, which is wonderful. The en-US bar created for the troops was a blend of en-US chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, skim milk en-US powder and oat flour. The mixture was so en-US thick, it had to be hand molded at first. The en-US bar was like a chocolate brick that had to be en-US shaved with a knife to be eaten. The worst en-US part was the taste, which was extremely en-US bitter because of the chocolate and oat flour en-US recipe. en-US Later, during the war, a tropical blend en-US was created for the Pacific Campaign. en-US Fortunately because sugar was used to give en-US quick energy to the troops, caramels, en-US orange and lemon-flavored powdered en-US drinks with lots of sugar were included in en-US the troops rations. Hershey produced more en-US than 3 billion bars for the war effort. en-US I am sure after the war, veterans couldnt en-US wait to eat Hershey chocolate kisses again. en-US Its amazing how something that tasted so en-US bad helped win the war. en-US Chocolate is the number one dessert in en-US the world with a history that dates back to en-US the ancient Aztec and Mayan civilizations. en-US It seems the first time chocolate was used en-US in war was by Hernando Cortez when he en-US conquered Mexico. The Mayans would en-US make a chocolate drink from ground cacao en-US beans (cocoa beans), chile peppers and en-US water whipped until frothy. Cortez is en-US reported to have required all of his troops en-US to drink the chocolate mixture daily as an en-US energy booster. en-US During the Revolutionary war, medics en-US would give the drink to wounded soldiers en-US to help with their recovery. Thomas en-US Jefferson was so impressed with the en-US chocolate drink he predicted it would en-US replace tea and coffee in America. In the en-US early 20th century, members of expeditions en-US to the North and South Poles drank hot en-US chocolate to provide warmth, nutrients, and en-US energy boosts.en-US OK, so it gives you energy and nutrients, en-US but thats not why we eat it today. We eat it en-US because it taste soooo good. Place a piece of en-US milk chocolate in your mouth and feel it en-US start to melt and you get that burst of sweet en-US and bitter creaminess. WOW! Now we en-US know it makes a great dessert, too. en-US If it wasnt for the Italians, who started en-US adding sugar to chocolate, we might be still en-US drinking a bitter drink. But did you know en-US chocolate is used to make some savory en-US dishes taste great as well? Try my chocolate en-US sauce. You might be surprised! Its good on en-US steaks, chicken or pork.en-USCOSTAS CHOCOLATE SAUCEen-USIngredients en-US 1 tablespoon unsalted butteren-US 2 cloves garlic, minced smallen-US 1/2-cup chicken or beef stocken-US 1/2-cup heavy cream or half & halfen-US 2-3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, en-US chopped en-US Your choice, a splash of bourbon, en-US whiskey or vodkaen-US 1 tablespoon hot sauce, more if you like it en-US hotteren-US Salt and pepper to tasteen-US Directionsen-US In a sauce pan, saut garlic in butter over en-US medium heat for 1-2 minutes; dont burn. en-US Add stock and continue cooking for 1 en-US minute.

What you dont know about some of en-US these common plants can be deadly. Some en-US parts of the ornamental plants or flowers in en-US your yard may contain deadly poison. The en-US most susceptible to being harmed by these en-US plants are children and pets. en-US One of the most toxic and common en-US poisonous plants is the Oleander. The en-US Oleander plant contains a deadly heart en-US stimulant that resembles the prescription en-US drug digitalis. If a child eats a single leaf or en-US two from this plant it could be deadly. en-US There have been several instances where en-US people have died from eating meats that en-US were roasted from a wood fire that en-US contained Oleander twigs or branches. en-US Dieffenbachia, which is a common en-US tropical that many of us have in our homes, en-US is also a highly toxic plant. All parts of this en-US plant are poisonous. If eaten, the plant can en-US cause intense burning and irritation of your en-US mouth. The plant can be deadly if enough en-US swelling occurs to block your airway. You en-US should always wash your hands after en-US handling this or any of the listed poisonous en-US plants.en-US Another surprising plant is the Azalea. en-US All parts of the Azalea plant can be toxic if en-US ingested. The symptoms include nausea en-US and vomiting along with difficulty in en-US breathing and possibly coma. The end en-US result can be fatal. Even the berries of en-US Jasmine plants can be toxic. They can cause en-US digestive problems along with nervous en-US system disorders. en-US The foliage from oak trees can be toxic en-US but the effects are gradual. If foliage is en-US ingested, it can slowly affect your kidneys. en-US You need to ingest a substantial amount for en-US severe poisoning to occur. Lantana, which en-US is commonly used by many as a colorful en-US ground cover, is another specimen that is en-US toxic if ingested. Acute poisoning can cause en-US hemorrhagic diarrhea and rapid heart rate.en-US Although this list includes some of the en-US most common plant varieties, there are en-US many more that could be added to this list en-US including Milkweed, Narcissus, Daffodil, en-US poison Oak, Purslane and Snow on the en-US Mountain. Bear in mind that just because en-US some of your favorite plants can be toxic if en-US ingested, common sense and keeping these en-US plants out of the reach of small children and en-US pets can totally avoid tragedy. en-US We have talked a lot about common and en-US seemingly innocent plants that can be toxic en-US but here is one plant that many people en-US think is deadly poisonous but in reality, it is en-US harmless. The plant I am referring to is the en-US Poinsettia. The Poinsettia plant is one of the en-US most widely produced plants in the en-US country. During the holidays, almost every en-US household has at least one Poinsettia en-US adorning their dcor. Fear not, as todays en-US commercially distributed varieties are not en-US poisonous. en-US There are some people, however, that en-US may get a mild allergic reaction to the milky en-US sap if it comes in contact with their skin. en-US The affected areas can be washed with soap en-US and water to remove the sap if irritation en-US develops. Poinsettia plants are not a serious en-US risk for animals although it is always best to en-US keep any plant out of the reach of pets if en-US they like to chew plants.en-US Finally, there are also several common en-US houseplants that can be toxic to animals en-US and children. Probably the most common is en-US the Philodendron. The toxic part is the en-US leaves. If ingested, it can cause burning of en-US the lips and mouth and can also cause en-US contact dermatitis if the plant juice contacts en-US the skin. Similar symptoms can occur with en-US Pothos, Golden Pothos and Devils Ivy. en-US If you have any ideas or topics you might en-US like me to cover, e-mail me at the address en-US listed below.
