en-US 3 en-USEach candidate was en-US asked to provide a bio en-US and a summary of the en-US biggest issue facing en-US the community that en-US they could address as en-US a school board memen-US -en-US ber. Their answers follow:en-USDevon Dupuis:en-USBio: Devon was born & raised on the en-US Treasure Coast and completed her Bacheen-US -en-US lors degree by age 18. She has now been an en-US academic advisor at IRSC for the past 7 en-US years and is married to TJ Dupuis, the son en-US of a thirty-year veteran of the IRC Fire en-US Department. MBA completion: Fall 2018.en-US Devon has also raised nearly $250,000 for en-US charities; founded Turning Point USA at en-US IRSC; and volunteered with Rotary, the en-US Education Foundation, Safe Space, United en-US Way, and others. Devon received these en-US awards: Junior League Woman of the Year en-US Rising Star, Disney and McDonalds Millenen-US -en-US nium Dreamer, Georgia Pacifics Angels in en-US Action, Sears Kid Hero.en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: I believe the biggest issue we face is in en-US bringing the focus of the school system back en-US to the individual students academic needs. en-US I often feel as though many other issues en-US seem to over-shadow the students, who are en-US supposed to be the focus of the school disen-US -en-US trict in the first place. We need to replace en-US the dysfunction and personal opinions with en-US ears that are open to the teachers/principles en-US on the ground floor, eyes that are open to en-US the individual learning needs of each stuen-US-en-US dent, and minds that are open to listen to en-US various ideas and perspectives in order to en-US reach the best possible solutions. en-US Contact info for Devon Dupuis: en-US, devondupuisircen-US en-USMerchon Green:en-USBio: Born and raised in Indian River en-US County and a product of Indian River en-US County public schools. Merchons parents en-US are also products of Indian River County en-US public schools and lifelong residents of Indien-US -en-US an River County. Merchon earned full acaen-US -en-US demic scholarships to Florida State Univeren-US -en-US sity where she received a Bachelor of Science en-US in Management Information Systems and a en-US Juris Doctorate in Law from Southern Unien-US -en-US versity Law Center. In addition, Merchon is en-US the founder of MDG Advisory Group, a en-US full-service consulting firm and also a en-US licensed realtor, health/life insurance agent, en-US notary, corporate trainer and real estate en-US investor. She is committed to continuous en-US learning and constant growth.en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: The subpar education our students are en-US receiving. Our students are below state averen-US -en-US age in every grade and subject except 3. en-US Once elected, Ill advocate to hire and en-US retain quality teachers. Retention of en-US teachers is directly related to student en-US success. In addition, Ill advocate to en-US eliminate district testing, so teachers can en-US actually teach and students can learn en-US without the anxiety of constant testing. I en-US will also advocate for a positive climate en-US and culture. Currently, we have low en-US employee morale which contributes to en-US our failure to retain teachers. Its time we en-US change that to a community and collaboen-US -en-US rative culture thats relationship based, en-US open and communicative.en-US Contact info for Merchon Green:en-US, www.en-US IG: @VoteMerchonGreenen-US Twitter: @VoteMerchonGen-USJacqueline Jackie Rosario: en-USBio: Wife, mother, educator. My husen-US -en-US band Milton and I have been married en-US twelve years. Our son Nicholas is ten en-US years old. With over two decades experien-US-en-US ence as a teacher and school administraen-US-en-US tor, I have a proven track record of success en-US as a public school advocate. I represent the en-US common sense conservative voice, with a en-US clear grasp of district governance, willing to en-US reverse the lack of transparency, hold en-US bureaucrats accountable, ensure local conen-US-en-US trol of our schools and fully support school en-US choice. My core principles are transparency en-US and fiscal responsibility. I know how to en-US remain focused regarding policy and school en-US safety. As a lifelong learner and educator, I en-US recognize the significance of affecting en-US change for greater academic success for all en-US students.en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: Creating a culture of transparency will en-US bridge the divide of communication and en-US connectivity with teachers, parents, stuen-US Candidate profiles: School Board Member District 2 en-USBy Mike See en-US en-US DISTRICT 2en-US, page 9 Dupuis en-USRosarioen-US Greenen-US Bermudez


en-US 4 en-USand national boards. en-US As Assistant Princien-US -en-US pal, Teri helped the en-US school move from a en-US grade of C to an A. en-US As principal, she led en-US the school through en-US restructuring. As en-US the district Science en-US Specialist, she en-US assisted two strugen-US -en-US gling schools and en-US helped write a $12.5 en-US million dollar grant en-US that her district received.en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: The school board needs better comen-US -en-US munication. The breakdown in communien-US -en-US cation has been evident in recent situations en-US such as the code of conduct and dress code en-US changes, budget issues and morale on the en-US campuses. The board needs to be more en-US transparent for the public and not assume en-US that everyone understands education jaren-US -en-US gon. Issues that come before the board that en-US indicate a change that would impact many, en-US especially students and parents, need to be en-US communicated in several ways and in a en-US timely fashion. This will go a long way in en-US repairing the boards image.en-US Contact info for Teri Barenborg: en-US Barenen-US -en-US borg4schools.comen-USRandy Heimler:en-USBio: I have a B.A. in Business Administraen-US-en-US tion from the University of Arizona.

I en-US was honored as a Hero by the Citys Police en-US Dept. and became the State of Floridas en-US Dept. of Educations Volunteer of the Year. I en-US also was the Chairman of the Convention en-US Center Advisory Board, and the Chair of en-US the Strategic Planning Committee. My wife en-US Cecilia and I live here with our son Josh, en-US since 2006. I currently work in the Meren-US -en-US chant Service Industry.en-US Q: What is the en-US biggest issue conen-US-en-US cerning your comen-US-en-US munity right now en-US that you can affect en-US in the office you en-US seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on en-US solving that issue?en-US A: The number en-US one issue in our en-US school district is the en-US retention of our en-US teachers. We have lost en-US 150-200 teachers en-US every year for the past 4 years due to a major en-US discipline issue. The school district has not en-US been enforcing the discipline policies and en-US our teachers cannot teach. This along with a en-US very low salary have contributed to this en-US mass exodus.en-US I plan on enforcing these policies along en-US with a zero-tolerance policy for bullying. I en-US also plan on finding funds to increase their en-US pay and benefits. This will help move our en-US district up to where it belongs and retain en-US our teachers.en-US Contact info for Randy Heimler: en-US www.en-US, Randy Heimler for School en-US Board Facebook pageen-USStacey Klim:en-USBio: I am a wife, mother of two, a former en-US teacher and an en-US advocate. I received en-US my Bachelors en-US degree from Metroen-US-en-US politan State Unien-US-en-US versity with an addien-US -en-US tional 2 year en-US certification in Eduen-US-en-US cation. I taught high en-US school, preschool, en-US community college, en-US long and short term en-US substitute positions en-US and leadership to en-US non-profits. Addien-US-en-US tionally, I worked as a paralegal and busien-US -en-US ness manager.

The last 8 years I have en-US advocated on the state legislative level for en-US our education system. en-US Q: What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now that you can en-US affect in the office you seek and, if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US A: The most important issue in our en-US school district is the breakdown of trust en-US between teachers, administrators and the en-US school board. Our teachers have no confien-US en-USdence that administrators understand their en-US problems or have any interest in fixing en-US them. To address this I will: propose that en-US teachers and support staff have a seat at the en-US table and a voice during school board meeten-US -en-US ings; volunteer in every school to gain a en-US clear understanding of the issues facing our en-US teachers and students; and advocate legislaen-US -en-US tively to change state policies that will lighten-US -en-US en the burden of imposed bureaucracy that en-US hinder our teachers from being successful.en-US Contact info for Stacey Klim: en-US votestacen-US -en-US, votestaceyklim, The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements.

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-USWhere is Congress?en-USA frequent question today is: where is en-US Congress? Where is Congress and what are en-US they doing about the president's latest repreen-US -en-US hensible mandate that the ACLU take on en-US responsibilities in this sinful chaos brought en-US about by Trump's shameful treatment of en-US immigrant families seeking asylum?en-US Because this is written days before it will en-US be published, the matter may be moot, as en-US wiser, more stable minds may have again en-US pulled the president from the precipice of en-US disaster.en-US The president's unlawful actions in blanen-US-en-US ket refusal of asylum to thousands of our en-US desperate neighbors to our south, and his en-US zero tolerance stance on immigration has en-US torn families apart and done irreparable en-US damage to them. A product of a Christian en-US (Catholic) education, I heard early and en-US often, "The family is the basic unit of socien-US -en-US ety." Because of the current president's disen-US -en-US regard for any people or persons who do not en-US meet his criteria for acceptance to his limiten-US -en-US ed and pigment dominated ideas, he has en-US treated people, running from unbearable en-US oppression and danger as less than his equal. en-US True, the president is not their equal, en-US because he has been blessed with American en-US citizenship and a charmed life. Can you see en-US him fleeing the conditions in Honduras or en-US Guatemala with his family? Instead of en-US devoting time and resources to fix the proben-US -en-US lem caused entirely by his prejudice and en-US incompetence, he continues to bluster about en-US his importance and plows ahead with his en-US dictator regime.en-US The truth of the two party system is evien-US -en-US dent: whoever has the majority is in charge, en-US today, that is Trump and his Republican en-US party. In the 60 years I have had the responen-US-en-US sibility and honor to be an American voter, I en-US have never seen such continual obstruction en-US of justice of our Democracy. There are en-US intelligent men and woman patriots, why en-US haven't they stood up to this despot?en-USAlgaeen-USThe algae that has taken over our wateren-US -en-US ways has reached epic proportions. If you go en-US over either of the Palm City bridges, you can en-US actually see the brown sludge which is killen-US -en-US ing our wildlife and is detrimental to the en-US health of everyone of us exposed to it everyen-US -en-US day. Property values are in jeopardy and our en-US quality of life is at risk. I felt strongly enough en-US to go to the Roosevelt bridge and hold up a en-US sign with about 100 other people who are en-US fed up with the politics of this nightmare. en-US Please educate yourselves before you go to en-US the voting booth and do NOT vote for anyen-US -en-US one who is beholden to big sugar.

Thank you.en-USCharter schoolsen-USI write to thank you for the coverage on en-US charter schools (Martin County edition, en-US July 13). The article put to rest some misunen-US -en-US derstandings about them: a.) they are public en-US schools (not private schools as objectors en-US stated), b.) the already approved Treasure en-US Coast Classical Academy is not designed as en-US a religious school.en-US We know the school board approved the en-US creation of a Barney Charter School Initiaen-US-en-US tive back in June. Were a comparison to be en-US made on the effectiveness of charter schools en-US it needs to be done on the Barney Initiative en-US type schools throughout the country. I am en-US sure the results would demonstrate the en-US rigor, complexity and breadth of their curen-US -en-US riculum would surpass that of public en-US schools in general.en-US An objector states he does not want his en-US money spent on classical education. For en-US anyone to refuse a classical education choice en-US is perplexing, to say the least. And thank en-US goodness the school is not forced to adhere en-US to the failed Common Core which is being en-US pulled from school districts in many parts of en-US the country for its one size fits all, lock-en-US step approach to teaching.en-US I commend the reportage on this importen-US -en-US ant topic as it presented both sides fairly. en-US Parents look to charter schools as a means of en-US offering them a choice for their children. en-USWhy anyone want to deny them a free en-US choice in a liberty loving society?en-USGreyhound racing amendmenten-USMy rave is for the Constitution Revision en-US Committee who has given voters the opporen-US -en-US tunity to phase out greyhound dog racing! en-US After many years of failed attempts at en-US reform by the Legislature, including banen-US -en-US ning anabolic steroids, requiring injury en-US reporting and removing dog racing from en-US the gambling industry, the voters will now en-US have a say in the matter. The grievances with en-US this industry are many including confineen-US-en-US ment in stacked metal cages not large en-US enough for them to fully stand up for more en-US than 20 hours a day, positive testing for en-US cocaine and according to state records, a en-US dog dying on average every three days. This en-US is unacceptable to Floridians who love their en-US dogs. Additionally, its a burden on the State en-US costing the State between $1 million to $3.3 en-US million annually according to a study comen-US -en-US missioned by the Legislature. Please vote en-US YES on Amendment 13 on November 6! en-USPolice, please readen-USOn Green River Parkway between Walton en-US Road and Jensen Beach Boulevard the en-US violent road rage thats constantly happenen-US -en-US ing driving on this road on a daily basis has en-US got to stop.

en-US 7 en-USregarding animals in the store: 1. Is the anien-US -en-US mal a service animal? If Yes, 2. What task en-US does the animal perform? Managers have to en-US make a decision based on the responses en-US received. There are potential civil penalties en-US under the ADA if Publix wrongfully en-US excludes a true service animal. However, en-US service animals will not be permitted to ride en-US in our shopping carts due to food safety and en-US sanitation concerns.en-US The Dept. of Justice expands on those two en-US questions store employees are allowed to en-US ask: Staff cannot ask about the persons disen-US-en-US ability, require medical documentation, en-US require a special identification card or trainen-US -en-US ing documentation for the dog, or ask that en-US the dog demonstrate its ability to perform en-US the work or task.en-US Comments on the Publix Facebook page en-US indicate that most shoppers approve of the en-US signs. Many posted that they fear carts used en-US to transport animals around the store are en-US not adequately cleaned before being used en-US again. Others took the opportunity to critien-US -en-US cize those who pretend their animals are en-US service dogs just so they can bring them into en-US the store, and into other public places that en-US dont normally allow animals.en-US According to the interpretation of the en-US ADA adopted in 2011 by the U.S. Departen-US-en-US ment of Justice, Civil Rights Division, Disen-US -en-US ability Rights Section, A service animal is a en-US dog that is individually trained to do work en-US or perform tasks for a person with a disabilen-US-en-US ity. As of 2011, only dogs are recognized as en-US service animals under titles II and III of the en-US ADA.en-US Most public places must permit service en-US animals to accompany people with disabilien-US -en-US ties in all areas where members of the public en-US are allowed to go.en-US The ADA regulations state that Service en-US animals are defined as dogs that are individen-US -en-US ually trained to do work or perform tasks en-US for people with disabilities. Examples of en-US such work or tasks include guiding people en-US who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, en-US pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting en-US a person who is having a seizure, reminding en-US a person with mental illness to take preen-US-en-US scribed medications, calming a person with en-US Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) en-US during an anxiety attack, or performing en-US other duties. Service animals are working en-US animals, not pets. The work or task a dog en-US has been trained to provide must be directly en-US related to the persons disability. Dogs whose en-US sole function is to provide comfort or emoen-US -en-US tional support do not qualify as service anien-US -en-US mals under the ADA.en-US Grocery stores or restaurants that sell or en-US prepare food must allow service animals in en-US public areas even if local health codes proen-US -en-US hibit animals.en-US The Humane Society of Vero Beach and en-US Indian River County has no problem with en-US the Publix policy, instead expressing conen-US-en-US cern about people choosing to leave dogs in en-US cars.en-US While The Humane Society hopes pet en-US parents will honor Publixs policy, we also en-US hope they will do whats best and safest for en-US their animals by leaving their pets at home en-US and not leaving them in the car, said Janet en-US Winikoff, Director of Education for HSVB. en-US Leaving animals unattended in vehicles can en-US result in dangerous situations such as heaten-US -en-US stroke. In just a matter of minutes, a vehicle en-US with the windows cracked can heat up to en-US over 120 degrees even during Floridas coolen-US -en-US er months. And of course, with the windows en-US down, theres always the possibility of pet I Believe In Pelican LandingI believe in Pelican Landing because we make a dierence in our residents lives, and being a part of their story is amazing!
