That state law said the en-US municipality could not limit the numen-US -en-US ber of dispensaries and could not en-US restrict locations more than they do for en-US pharmacies.en-US Basically, if a pharmacy would be en-US allowed in a location, then a medical en-US marijuana dispensary will be allowed, en-US City Attorney James Stokes said.en-US The state law also said that a municien-US-en-US pality could not locate a dispensing en-US facility within 500 feet of a public or prien-US -en-US vate school. It could extend that buffer, en-US as long as the exclusion was identical for en-US pharmacies.en-US The new ordinance presented for en-US consideration at the June 13 council en-US meeting did suggest extending the bufen-US -en-US fer zone to 1,000 feet, and also sought to en-US add parks as areas that would need to en-US have buffer zones around them. The en-US City Council rejected both ideas, and en-US approved an ordinance keeping the bufen-US -en-US fer at 500 feet.en-US Two different maps were provided en-USEnjoying a cool treat en-USSeeen-US en-US SCORESen-US page 7 The Sebastian Police en-USDepartments Community en-US Oriented Policing Endeavor en-US Unit (C.O.P.E.) held a en-US community outreach event en-US on Saturday, June 16 at en-US Riverview Park in Sebasen-US -en-US tian.

That wasnt true either.en-US Heather worked at CJ Cannons a couple en-US years ago and was arrested for stealing from en-US them, Maj. Flowers said on June 11. She en-US then violated her probation and has been en-US wanted. Today, I learned that she has been en-US telling people that she is working with me to en-US catch a dirty cop and needed money to set en-US them up. The reality is that she used that en-US money to fuel her drug habit. She also told en-US friends and family she has cancer (another en-US lie) to get money for drugs. When we took en-US her into custody this evening, she had loaden-US -en-US ed needles and other drug paraphernalia. en-US She and her husband are also now suspects en-US for those scam calls en-US pretending to be en-US me.en-US Sheriff Deryl Loar en-US announced that en-US same day that Ms. en-US Grey had been taken en-US into custody for vioen-US -en-US lations of probation. en-US She is being investien-US-en-US gated for the funden-US -en-US raising scams, which en-US Sheriff Loar attributen-US -en-US ed to a drug proben-US -en-US lem.en-US The opioid epidemic is very real and en-US Heather Grey is a perfect example of what en-US we have seen in our county, Sheriff Loar en-US said. She has been lying to her friends and en-US family about having cancer to get money for en-US drugs. Since her arrest, we have heard from en-US dozens of people who all heard the same en-US story about needing cash for cancer treaten-US -en-US ments. Fortunately, many of her friends did en-US not send money. We have confirmed en-US approximately five people who did provide en-US money via Facebook and Paypal.en-US One of those friends posted a screenshot en-US she said was an appeal she received on Faceen-US -en-US book from Ms. Grey.en-US Im really sorry to bother you or to even en-US have to try to ask a favor of you. Long story en-US short Im not sure if you saw my post a little en-US bit back but I was diagnosed with Ovarian en-US Cancer, then 3 weeks ago had to have a full en-US hysterectomy ... that and going through a en-US nasty divorce all at the same time. I lost my en-US job when I started on chemo bc it was maken-US-en-US ing me so sick, and I was supposed to have a en-US treatment done today but my moms bank en-US account ended up getting hacked into. Anyen-US -en-US ways I feel horrible asking but I was wonen-US-en-US dering if there was any way you had $75 I en-US can borrow for a few days, I will be able to en-US pay you back just in a really bad spot right en-US now and Im humiliated even having to ask en-US but I dont know what else to do. So if you en-US could help I would appreciate it so very en-US much.en-US Several others replied that they had en-US received the same appeal. One high school en-US friend said I think everyone that went to en-US school with her got the same message.en-US In the comments section of Maj. Flowers en-US Facebook post, numerous people said that en-US they had received similar requests from Ms. en-US Grey. Some had given her money, most did en-US not.en-US Ms. Grey was previously arrested in Indien-US -en-US an River County in Feb., 2016 for probation en-US violations, June 2015 for driving with susen-US -en-US pended license, giving false information to a en-US pawnbroker, dealing in stolen property, and en-US grand theft, and March 2015 for grand theft, en-US dealing in stolen property, and giving false en-US information to a pawnbroker.en-US The sheriffs office says that Ms. Grey is en-US also considered a person of interest in recent en-US scams where a caller was posing as Maj. en-US Flowers, telling people they had outstanding en-US warrants and demanding payment via gift en-US card.en-US According to information in Ms. Greys en-USbooking file at the sheriffs website, her en-US address is in the 1700 block of 20th St. SW, en-US Vero Beach.en-US Ms. Grey remains at the Indian River en-US County Jail without bond for violation of en-US probation warrants. Further drug charges en-US are pending, while investigation continues en-US into her alleged scams. The Indian River en-US County Sheriffs Office is seeking any other en-US victims of Heather Grey.

en-US 4 en-USwith the proposed ordinance. One showed a en-US 1,000 feet buffer, the other with a 500 feet en-US buffer.en-US Mayor Jim Hill, looking at the two maps, en-US said Theyre drastically different. The 1,000 en-US foot buffer clearly zones out almost any en-US areas that they could possibly put a dispenen-US-en-US sary. 500 feet seems to open it up quite a bit. en-US I would be in solid favor of this ordinance en-US with something in between those two. Our en-US goal on this council has not been to not en-US allow them, but to have some control over en-US them and make sure we dont allow the disen-US -en-US pensaries to run amok.en-US Council Member Ed Dodd presented the en-US argument to keep the buffer at 500 feet, en-US along with endorsing the ordinance as a en-US whole.en-US I felt that the 1,000 foot radius limited it en-US too much, Mr. Dodd said. I went back and en-US looked at the four precincts in Sebastian, en-US and 70 percent of the people that voted in en-US those four precincts voted for Donald en-US Trump for president and voted for medical en-US marijuana. Thats a telling tale, when you get en-US people that voted for Donald Trump for en-US president but also support medical marijuaen-US -en-US na.en-US After noting that federal law still opposes en-US medical marijuana, Mr. Dodd said Quite en-US frankly, I think federal law is wrong in this en-US case. I think the voters were very clear. And en-US I prefer the 500 foot radius. en-US Looking at the proposed map, Mr. Dodd en-US said that there were many places that fall en-US outside the 500 foot circles on the map en-US where a dispensary could not be put anyway en-US because of other zoning rules.en-US My preference would be that we live by en-US state law, which says 500 feet. I think the 500 en-US foot buffer is sufficient to protect us, and I en-US think the voters were clear they want meden-US -en-US ical marijuana facilities to be made available en-US to people who need them. We cant legislate en-US morality. We cant stop doctors from certifyen-US -en-US ing people just like we cant stop doctors en-US from writing prescriptions for Oxycontin, en-US and we dont shut down drugstores because en-US doctors write prescriptions for Oxycontin. I en-US think we need to clearly approve something en-US that provides an opportunity for these facilien-US -en-US ties to be here.en-US Council Member Bob McPartlan moved en-US for approval with striking the restricted bufen-US -en-US fer zones around public or private parks, en-US and reducing the buffers back to 500 feet.en-US Former Council Member Andrea Coy en-US spoke in favor of the bill during public comen-US -en-US ment.en-US I was prepared to come read you the riot en-US act when I saw that (1,000 foot buffer) map, en-US Ms. Coy said. That definitely was not anyen-US -en-US thing we discussed initially. Its not what the en-US county thought we were going to do. Its not en-US what we promised the public and it definiteen-US -en-US ly wasnt what the public asked us to do.en-US Moving to a general discussion about en-US medical marijuana, Ms. Coy said Theres a en-US lot of misconception about medical marien-US -en-US juana. Its not about getting high. If I had a en-US desire to get high I would go to Colorado or en-US Amsterdam where its legal. You can do that. en-US Its a totally different product. The fears that en-US people have about medical marijuana are en-US totally bogus and based on ignorance.en-US Ms. Coy then listed all the medical condien-US -en-US tions that can be alleviated by medical marien-US -en-US juana.en-US Medical marijuana is helping a lot of en-US people, Ms. Coy said. We need to make it en-US available. This is not something kids will get en-US their hands on, nor do they want it. Theyre en-US going to be out on the street looking for the en-US stuff that has THC.en-US Ms. Coy added that anything the council en-US does regarding placement of medical marien-US-en-US juana facilities will also be a burdensome en-US restriction on pharmacy locations.en-US Before agreeing, Mayor Hill asked if the en-US city would be required to lease city-owned en-US buildings for dispensaries if they fell outside en-US the buffers, specifically thinking about en-US property along Roseland Road and around en-US the airport.en-US Does the city want to be in the business en-US of leasing our properties for medical marien-US -en-US juana dispensaries, Mayor Hill asked, en-US when it is in violation of federal law?en-US City attorney Stokes and City Manager en-US Paul Carlisle replied that existing zoning en-US restrictions and FAA regulations around the en-US airport would probably disallow that area.en-US With that last objection addressed, Counen-US-en-US cil Members Linda Kinchen, Dodd, McParten-US -en-US lan, and Mayor Hill voted in favor. Council en-US Member Albert Iovino was absent for the en-US vote. The motion carried 4-0.

The opinions included are not those of Hometown News or its employees.en-USPlease limit your submissions to 250 words, so that we can include more entries. en-US Readers are asked to refrain from making slanderous or libelous statements. en-USRepresentatives need en-US to do their joben-USA long time ago an Ann Landers column en-US gave this advice: If you are not part of the en-US solution you are part of the problem. The en-US solution is easy contact your representaen-US -en-US tives about your issues of concern.en-US The current U.S. administration and conen-US-en-US gress needs to answer to us, their constituen-US -en-US ents: that is their job: to represent the peoen-US -en-US ple who elected them. They need to be en-US accountable to us and to make sure that en-US happens, we have to be part of the solution. en-US Environmental and consumer protection en-US issues affect all of us. The Consumer Proen-US-en-US tection Bureau has gone the way of Pruitts en-US Environmental Protection Agency --en-US neglecting or forgetting the most important en-US part of the agencies titles: Protection. They en-US have not been doing their job. en-US We need to tell them (via phone, fax, mail, en-US email or in person) what we expect of them, en-US ask them: Will you be a voice and a force en-US for protection for consumers and for our en-US environment? Will you be holding Town en-US Hall Meetings? If so, when, where? If not, en-US why not? Town Hall Meetings are where en-US representatives actually meet and converse en-US with their constituents. Does your represenen-US-en-US tative do that?en-US13 State Constitution en-US amendmentsen-USThe first two times I saw the amendments en-US published in a local newspaper, I read en-US through the article twice once increduen-US-en-US lously the second more studiously and en-US took notes to try to understand what was en-US being proposed to no avail.en-US The June 15, 2018 edition of the Homeen-US -en-US town News was the third publication Ive en-US seen. There is no understanding or reasonen-US -en-US ing behind these proposals presented as en-US they are, other than to confuse, obfuscate, en-US and trick voters into voting for some things en-US / rules no one wants, and no legislator wants en-US to be blamed for. This is an example of goven-US -en-US ernment at its worst.en-US I STRONGLY urge every voter to vote en-US NO on all 13 items. None of these need to en-US be elevated to the level of incorporation into en-US the states constitution, but should be en-US addressed individually by the legislature, en-US where each elected official must take a puben-US -en-US lic stand for or against each item. Vote en-US NO to the process which only serves to en-US benefit, via power and/or money, to a few, en-US and takes rights / power away from the peoen-US -en-US ple of the state of Florida.en-USWhy set up even en-US more new homes?en-USI find it ironic that the City Council of en-US Sebastian just agreed to increase the Equivaen-US -en-US lent Residential Unit (ERU) for double the en-US current rate without any proven statistics to en-US justify that increase. They claim that the en-US infrastructure needs to be repaired, in the en-US near future, then vote to add 500 new homes en-US to these storm drains they claim need repair.en-US As for the building of new homes in en-US Sebastian I am not aware of any follow up en-US on the inspection or relocation of any en-US Gopher Tortoises in my neighborhood en-US where several new homes have been built. en-US The contractors just came in with their bull en-US dozes and plowed all the foliage and trees en-US down. Now, Sebastian has approved zoning en-US for another 500 new homes. What are they en-US thinking? Drive down most streets in Sebasen-US -en-US tian and you will find many older homes for en-US sale. Some of these homes have been for sale en-US for months and/or years. Drive around and en-US you will see many vacant areas where develen-US -en-US opments were started and left unfinished. en-US We have many empty or nearly empty strip en-US malls and Sebastian is allowing new strip en-USThe annual Wateren-US -en-US lily Celebration en-US provides countless en-US opportunities for en-US photographers like en-US Brett Smith, seen en-US here taking macro en-US shots of flowers on en-US a tabletop.en-US Artists, photograen-US -en-US phers and horticulen-US -en-US ture enthusiasts en-US from throughout en-US the state filled the en-US gardens to observe en-US the renowned en-US collection of over en-US 80 species of en-US waterlilies as well en-US as the annual en-US Waterlily Photo en-US Contest, which was en-US on display for en-US visitors to view. en-USAnthony Inswastyen-US staff photographeren-USmalls be constructed. From my perspective en-US the only ones who benefit from all this en-US needless construction are the construction en-US companies and the City of Sebastian. Maybe en-US it's time for the people we elected to repreen-US -en-US sent us give us a say in what they seem to en-US think is good for our community.en-USUse bats and en-US fish against pestsen-USThe rain has been good for mosquitoes. en-US But our first line of defense should not be en-US poisoning the environment.en-US Make sure there is no standing water in en-US the neighborhoods. Ponds can be stocked en-US with fish (e.g., Gambusia) that eat mosquito en-US eggs and larvae. en-US Put up a bat house. One bat can eat more en-US than 1,000 mosquitoes in one night. Poison en-US should be the last and little used option.en-USSomeone else's life en-US depends on you driving safeen-USDriving in Florida has added to my en-US peeves.en-US Making a stop at a "stop" sign means you en-US stop before the sign then proceed with cauen-US-en-US tion.en-US The rod on the left side of the steering en-US wheel is your turn signal. Most Florida driven-US-en-US ers don't know it exists.en-US To all our "disabled persons" with a parken-US -en-US ing identification permit you place on your en-US mirror: if you read it, it states "remove en-US before driving vehicle." This is so it does not en-US block your vision.en-US As far as MPH signs . no one reads them. en-US They drive at what ever speed they want.en-US I could go but I'll end by saying drive safe en-US . someone's life depends on you.en-USHometown News keeping it localen-USThank you so much for the Hometown en-US News. I look forward to reading it every Frien-US -en-US day.en-US It is wonderful to have a newspaper that en-US addresses our community. Whenever I need en-US or want something to do, I know exactly en-US where to go thanks to the Hometown News.en-US I only wish you could run more of the calen-US -en-US endar so I could make plans further in en-US advance.

en-US 7 en-USThe statewide improvement was greatest en-US in grade 5 science, rising from 51-55 peren-US -en-US cent. Each Treasure Coast district showed en-US similar gains. Indian River rose from 48-54 en-US percent. Martin rose from 50-54 percent. St. en-US Lucie rose from 43-50 percent.en-US For grade 8 science, the statewide gain en-US was two points, from 50-52 percent.en-US Indian River tripled that improvement, en-US rising from 47-53 percent. Martin rose from en-US 54-57 percent. St. Lucie rose from 46-49 en-US percent.en-US The social studies numbers were less conen-US -en-US sistent. In civics, the statewide scores en-US improved from 69-71 percent. But Indian en-US River showed a five point drop, from 70-65 en-US percent. Martin showed an above average en-US increase, from 71-79 percent. St. Lucie en-US increased two points from 69-71 percent.en-US In U.S. history, the statewide scores en-US improved from 67-68, but Martin dropped en-US one point from 75-74 percent, still far above en-US the state average. Indian River increased en-US from 69-70, and St. Lucie increased one en-US point also, from 62-63.en-US We applaud the work of our teachers and en-US students, said Indian River County Superen-US -en-US intendent Dr. Mark Rendell. A years worth en-US of teaching and learning are not necessarily en-US represented in these test scores, but they are en-US the measure that the state uses. We do have en-US reason to celebrate several areas of accomen-US -en-US plishment. Overall, as a district, our scores en-US improved in English Language Arts, Math, en-US and Science. Some of the increases were sigen-US -en-US nificant. For example, both 5th Grade and en-US 8th Grade Science saw increases of six en-US points. Probably the most impressive was a en-US 14-point increase in Algebra 1, which put us en-US above the state average. Our Curriculum en-US and Instruction Department focused on en-US some of these areas and it has paid off.en-US In St. Lucie County, Superintendent E. en-US Wayne Gent attributed the growth to the en-US individualized support students receive. I en-US commend our teachers, administrators, and en-US staff, Superintendent Gent said. Overall, en-US the vast majority of our students are making en-US gains, and we are continuing our positive en-US trends which is a credit to our outstanding en-US staff.en-US The Florida Department of Education en-US analyzed the achievement gap between Afrien-US-en-US can American, Hispanic, and white stuen-US -en-US dents. Commissioner Pam Stewart said that en-US in grades 3-10, the percentage of African en-US American students passing the English Lanen-US -en-US guage Arts assessment increased by one peren-US -en-US centage point, while the percentage of Hisen-US -en-US panic students passing increased by two en-US percentage points. Both groups, Commisen-US -en-US sioner Stewart said, narrowed the achieveen-US -en-US ment gap with their white counterparts.en-US Commissioner Stewart said the percenten-US -en-US age of economically disadvantaged students en-US in grades 3-8 passing the Mathematics en-US assessments increased by two percentage en-US points, while African American students, en-US Hispanic students, and students with disen-US -en-US abilities each increased performance by one en-US percentage point. en-US In Algebra 1, Hispanic students increased en-US the percentage of students passing the en-US assessment by two percentage points. Ecoen-US -en-US nomically disadvantaged students increased en-US their performance by two percentage points, en-US and African American students and stuen-US -en-US dents with disabilities increased their peren-US -en-US formance by one percentage point.en-US In Geometry, Hispanic students increased en-US the percentage passing by four points. Ecoen-US -en-US nomically disadvantaged students increased en-US their performance by four percentage en-US points, and African American students en-US increased the percentage passing by three en-US percentage points.en-US For more information about the test results, en-US visiten-US -en-US ments/k-12-student-assessment/en-US results/2018.stml.en-US For Indian River County schools, visiten-US en-US en-US For Martin en-US County, visiten-US en-USFor St. en-US Lucie County, visit rDimensional Color Razor Cuts Perms Foil High or Low Lights Frostings Facial Waxing Shellac Nails Acrylic Nails Pedicures ff nttbf rf t R E A D E R S 1C H O I C E 2015 2016 2015 2016 2017 2017 C H O I C E R E A D E R S f rr Heavy Duty Welded Deck Heavy Duty Fabricated Frame MOORE MOTORS 772-569-8220 5135 US HWY 1, VERO BEACH Parts & Service For Everything We Sell Patented Automatic Park Brake System Comes with a 3 year factory warrantyAuthorized Dealer Zero Turn, Zero Down, Zero % Interest 2017 2017 C H O I C E R E A D E R S Starting at $2899 Charley is a five-year old spayed female calico mixed breed cat who en-UScame to the Humane Society in April.
