Affirmation It’s summertime and like the song says “the living is easy” on the Treasure Coast. With the snowbirds gone, we locals have more time to get out and enjoy the natural beauty of our area. The restaurants are less crowded so there’s not a long wait, the beaches are more private, and most of the hotels have special summer rates for a weekend away in your own home town! Now’s OUR time to take that airboat ride, cruise the Indian River Lagoon, visit an art gallery, take a hike, shop locally for summer savings or just flat out relax! Flip through the pages to find all the fun things to do during the summer and learn how you can become a part of the cultural explosion by becoming a member or patron of the various arts that enhance our community. I don’t know about you, but I feel truly blessed to live, work and play in our tropical paradise!

Members Take Center Stage at Sunrise Theatre

T

he pristine, beautifully restored, intimate 1,200-seat Sunrise Theatre, located in Historic downtown Fort Pierce, presents national touring Broadway shows, musical and comedy acts, ballet and opera companies with full orchestras, country stars and classic rock icons. The Sunrise Theatre directly benefits the economy and quality of life in St. Lucie County by attracting visitors from other cities, counties and states. Also located within the theatre complex is the 220-seat Black Box Theatre, a state-ofthe-art venue offering a variety of national, regional and local programming. The Black Box is home to the Ft Pierce Jazz and Blues Society’s Jazz Jams every Tuesday night (Tickets only $5) and the home of “The Comedy Corner” (from the owners of the Improv) bringing top-touring comedians every 2nd & 4th Saturday night of each month (Tickets only $15). History of the Sunrise Theatre Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Sunrise opened its doors on August 1, 1923 as the largest theatre on Florida’s East Coast between Jacksonville and Miami. It quickly became the center of all St. Lucie County’s cultural activities. The theatre closed its doors on September 8, 1983, due to the decline of the downtown area and a refusal to convert to multi-screen operation. In 1988, Main Street Fort Pierce was established and soon realized the need for the Sunrise Theatre as a center for local, national and international world class performing arts presentations. Main Street Fort Pierce began an effort to save the historic theatre. In 1997, the Sunrise Theatre was purchased by the St. Lucie Preservation Association, Inc. and today, after reopening on January 6, 2006, the theatre is completely renovated to its original splendor with state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems and is owned and operated by the City of Fort Pierce. 4

Discover Historic Treasures From The Sea

I

n December of 1992, World Famous Treasure Hunter Mel Fisher opened a permanent museum and conservation laboratory in Sebastian, Fl. Mel started his full-time treasure hunting career in Vero Beach when he moved here with his wife Dolores and family from California. Mel spent the next 7 years successfully salvaging the 1715 Fleet, which sank off the Treasure Coast. They then moved to Key West, Florida in search of the Atocha, a 1622 shipwreck estimated to be worth $400,000,000. In 1985 Mel found the Atocha and became famous. Since 1983, the Fisher family has been in charge of salvage operations off the Treasure Coast. However, all of the recoveries went to their Key West facility for conservation and display. When Mel’s daughter, Taffi, who works with her family in the salvage operation as curator, wanted to relocate to the area in the summer of 1989, her father told her to find a location for a permanent museum and conservation facility. She found an old abandoned fire station and spent a year renovating it. It now houses the working conservation laboratory and first class museum which displays a vast array of artifacts salvaged from the Atocha, the local 1715 shipwrecks, and other shipwrecks. A window from the museum overlooks the lab so visitors can view ongoing conservation of newly salvaged artifacts before they are displayed in the “Recent Recoveries” case. There is also a unique giftshop where you can purchase authentic treasures and “Own a Piece of History”.™

Economic Impact of Arts & Culture in Indian River County

by Barbara Hoffman, Cultural Council of Indian River County

T

he Cultural Council of Indian River County commissioned an economic impact study last year to measure the significance of the creative industry in the community. Non-profit and for-profit arts and creative organizations were included. They captured the organizations that transformed cultural skills, knowledge and ideas into economically productive goods, services and places. They also included organizations that played a key role in the distribution of those products. The numbers were astounding. The study demonstrates that the county’s creative community is a significant economic force with potential for even greater economic and social impact. Just look at these facts! 1. Indian River County’s creative industry employed 1729 workers with annual earnings of 59 million, making it equivalent to the 2nd largest employer in the county, second only to the School District and larger than County Government and the Medical Center. Its employment encompasses a broad base of nonprofit and for-profit sectors, and is led by the freelance and self-employed artists and creative workers. 2. At 4.2% of the population, the rate of creative employment in IRC is nearly twice that of the national average of 2.2%. In proportional terms, IRC’s creative employment is greater than Chicago at 3.8% and on par with New York City at 4.9%. 3. The average annual earnings for the cultural industry were $33,442 in 2010 compared to the average wage of $35,191 across all industries in the county. 4. The creative industry’s direct economic impact approached $346 million in produced goods and services including 3.6 million in Florida sales tax, 500,000 in Indian River County sales tax, and 11.8 million in Indian River County property taxes. These sales tax figures do not count the sales tax revenues generated by the spending of the creative industry enterprises or the various shows, festivals and other activities that attract tourist spending to the area. National research demonstrates that travelers who included arts and culture in their trips travel for a long period of time and spend more, relative to travelers who do not include arts and culture in their trips. It is therefore the goal of the Cultural Council of Indian River County to promote the arts through education, collaboration, marketing and advocacy. We are so fortunate to live in a community that attracts artists, writers, actors, musicians and cultural enthusiasts from around the world. Next time you are enjoying a play or strolling through a gallery, remember that supporting the arts is supporting your community so get out and enjoy all the culture that this unique county has to offer!

City of Fort Pierce Wins 2012 National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation by Anne Satterlee, APR, CPRC Communications & Marketing Manager City of Fort Pierce

T

he Wyland Foundation and Toyota has announced the 12 winning cities of the 2012 National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, an online competition held throughout April which encouraged residents in all 50 states to conserve water, save energy and reduce pollution. The winning cities are: Laguna Beach, California; Victoria, Minnesota; South Shore, Kentucky; Charlestown, New Hampshire; Manhattan Beach, California; Eden Prairie, Minnesota; Fort Pierce, Florida; Quakertown, Pennsylvania; Greeley, Colorado; Madison, Wisconsin; Charlottesville, Virginia; and Toms River, New Jersey. The Wyland Foundation, founded by renowned environmental artist Wyland, created the Challenge with Toyota in honor of the 40th Anniversary of the Clean Water Act, the primary federal law protecting water resources in the United States. Organizations spearheading the effort also include the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Water, U.S. Forest Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, WaterPik, Rain Bird, Lowe’s, STERLING Plumbing, PADI and Project AWARE. “This recognition speaks highly of our residents and the important role we can all have in conservation of our natural resources. While we live in a state that is surrounded by water, it is a precious commodity and we all need to conserve daily,” states Fort Pierce Mayor Robert Benton. The Challenge was divided cities into four regions (West, Midwest, South and Northeast) and categorized them by population according to ZIP Codes (5,000-30,000 residents, 30,001-100,000 residents, 100,000+ residents). Cities with the highest percentage of residents within the city’s ZIP code boundaries made online pledges to reduce their water use at www.mywaterpledge.com were recognized as the winners.  Participants in the winning cities will now be entered into a drawing to win more than $50,000 in prizes, including the Grand Prize of a Toyota Prius c Hybrid, as well as custom-designed sprinkler systems from Rain Bird, Eco-Flow Showerheads from WaterPik, water-saving toilets from STERLING Plumbing, and 1,000 gift cards for Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores. Founded in 1993 by environmental artist Wyland (best known for his series of 100 monumental marine life murals), the Wyland Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization, is actively engaged in teaching millions of students around the county about our ocean, rivers, lakes streams, and wetlands. www.wylandfoundation.org 14

Not Your Average Sandcastle

W

hile building sandcastles is a favorite childhood memory for most of us, a few talented artists take sand sculpting to the extreme as displayed in last year’s international sand sculpting festival in Viera. Hundreds of hours of work and tons of sand went into transforming this common medium into brilliant masterpieces.

From the beach its sandy walls rise, Its turrents reach up to touch the skies. A tiny moat dissolves the keep. Its pavers are strong, though only two inches deep. Tiny footprints embedded in the sand, Where once a child there did stand. Its grace and beauty a short time will last, Before the sea washes it into the past. - author unknown 18

Antique Mansion Has Sordid Past

T

he stately mansion that houses Treasure Coast Antique Mall sits atop one of the highest points along Florida’s Treasure Coast, halfway between Vero Beach and Ft. Pierce. Originally constructed in 1926 for a Bulgarian philharmonic director from New York, the home has had a colorful history including tales of the rich and famous, ghosts, and gambling. In the early 40’s the mansion was used by the Germans to communicate with submarines offshore, for the purpose of espionage. Silent film star Gloria Swanson owned the mansion in the middle 40’s where she rendezvoused with Joe Kennedy. Al Capone visited often and the smell of cigar smoke is occasionally noticed in the upstairs bedroom where he slept. In the late 40’s the home was known as The Pleasant View Inn because of its hilltop view of the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean. In the 50’s the mansion was the site of a gambling bar and casino. During the late 50’s and 60’s it was operated as a bordello. Rumor has it that a gentleman client was shot by his wife on the seventh step as he was coming down from an upstairs bedroom. His ghost is said to still haunt the house. In the early 1990’s the home was converted to the Treasure Coast Antique Mall. During the renovation, a 30’ beach scene mural was discovered behind an old wall panel. The mural is rumored to have been painted by A.E. Backus, a famous Ft. Pierce landscape artist, in exchange for his bar bill! 28

Kite, co-owner of the Vero Beach Springhill. “We’re very proud that our 83 room facility came out on top! Now the trick is to stay there!” The Vero Beach Springhill opened in 2009 and has been racking up awards locally as well as nationally. “We received the chairman’s award for guest satisfaction, and a diamond circle award prior to being awarded the No.1 designation” said Kite. Locally, the local hotel won the 2011 Mid-Sized Company of the year award from the Indian River Chamber of Commerce. Springhill Suites offers affordable suites with free wi-fi and hot breakfast! It’s a favorite with business travelers with its fully equipped on-site business center, full in-room internet and 24-hour market for food and snacks. Of course you’ll want to enjoy the swimming pool, spa and fitness center in your spare time! Most of all, Springhill Suites pride themselves on stellar customer service with Vero Beach having the best of the best!

Lagoon Greenway Project Opens This Summer In Vero Beach

N

ature lovers have a new waterfront preserve to explore, thanks to a public-private partnership between the Indian River Land Trust, Indian River County and the Indian River Mosquito control District. The Lagoon Greenway is a recreational and educational trail system on nearly 200 acres of conservation land along the Indian River Lagoon between the South Relief Canal and 17th Street Bridge in Vero Beach. The first phase, opening this summer, includes an 11-shell rock parking area nestled among a stand of mature oaks, a trailhead information kiosk and a loop trail with a small picnic area. Walkers, joggers, and bikers can enjoy nearly three miles of shaded pathways that wind through the upland hammocks, across the wetlands, around the mosquito retention pond and out to the banks of the Indian River Lagoon. Phase two will add elevated boardwalks and an observation deck on the lagoon for fishing, wildlife viewing and picnicking. Leashed dogs are welcome to enjoy the trails with their owners. The Lagoon Greenway is open to the public daily from dusk to dawn. Look for the entrance on the east side of Indian River Blvd. at 8th Street. 46 46

The Capt’s on the Move Again!

C

apt Hiram’s Resort, located on Sebastian’s riverfront, is currently in the process of expanding in several key areas. With the recent addition of kayak, stand up paddleboard and bicycle rentals, the Ship Store has been completely renovated, becoming the new Outdoor Adventure Center. Joining the boat rentals, fishing charters and equipment rentals already available at the marina, Sebastian Parasailing will be coming on board to offer yet another adventure from Capt Hiram’s. There is also plans to double the size of the marina, with the addition of a 300 foot north dock to run parallel to the existing dock. The original north dock was destroyed during the 2004 hurricanes. Additional plans, according to owner Tom Collins, include the construction of another banquet/meeting room, that will be located adjacent to the hotel. This is to accommodate the increased needs of the corporate and group guests of the resort. Final touches are being completed on the redesign of the hotel rooms at The Inn at Capt Hiram’s Resort and they will be adding 21 unique Caribbean style hotel units overlooking the river for a new total of 91 rooms and suites.

Keep Cool This Summer to Avoid Heatstroke

T

ake extra care to keep cool this summer when enjoying outdoor activities to avoid becoming a victim of heatstroke. Heatstroke usually occurs from exercise or heavy work combined with inadequate fluid intake. Young children, older adults, people who are obese and people born with an impaired ability to sweat are at high risk of heatstroke. Other risk factors include dehydration, alcohol use, cardiovascular disease and certain medications. The main sign of heatstroke is an elevated body temperature with changes in mental status ranging from personality changes to confusion and coma. Skin may be hot and dry — although if heatstroke is caused by exertion, the skin may be moist. Other signs and symptoms include rapid heartbeat, shallow breathing, elevated blood pressure, dizziness, headache, nausea and fainting. If you suspect heatstroke, move to a shady or air-conditioned space and drink cool water. Cool down by spraying yourself with water, applying damp sheets or sitting in front of a fan. Call 911 for medical help. Of course, do the same for a friend!
