Big Cats are Moving West!

lions, tigers, cougars, and leopards will soon be leaving their small 2 ½ acre home in Brevard county and relocating to a spacious 10 acre spread adjacent to Forever Florida off State Road 441, about 8 miles south of Holopaw. Central Florida Animal Reserve (CFAR) is working to raise funds for a 1 million dollar compound, which will include a visitor center and guided tours. The CFAR is a big cat and wildlife sanctuary dedicated to the preservation of the “Great” cats. The nonprofit facility strives to preserve these magnificent animals and act as stewards for their care and well being and to educate the public about their plight.

Some of the large cats are unwanted pets that outgrew their appeal when they grew to 300 pounds and started eating 10-25 pounds of meat a day. Others are rescues from other sanctuaries and governmental agencies, and some were born in the Brevard facility prior to CFAR’s inception. None of the cats were born in the wild and all are now neutered.

By most estimates there are more big cats in captivity in this country than there are left in the wild. This is especially true of tigers. These big cats require specialized care over a lifespan of up to 20 years and failure to recognize this long-term commitment results in big cats under the care of people who cannot fulfill their obligation. That’s when CFAR steps in and provides a home for the cats to live out their lives surrounded by individuals dedicated to their needs. CFAR needs your help!

Remembering our Fallen Soldiers … By Placing Coins on Their Tombstones

W

hile visiting some cemeteries you may notice that headstones marking certain graves have coins on them, left by previous visitors to the grave. These coins have distinct meanings when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America’s military, and these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin. A coin left on a headstone or at the gravesite is meant as a message to the deceased soldier’s family that someone else has visited the grave to pay respect. A penny at the grave means that you visited. A nickel indicates that you and the deceased trained at boot camp together. A dime means you served with him. A quarter tells the family that you were with the solider when he was killed. According to tradition, the money left at graves in national cemeteries and state veterans cemeteries is eventually collected, and the funds are put toward maintaining the cemetery or paying burial costs for indigent veterans. In the US, this practice became common during the Vietnam War, due to the political divide in the country over the war; leaving a coin was seen as a more practical way to communicate that you had visited the grave than contacting the soldier’s family, which could evolve into an uncomfortable argument over politics relating to the war. Some Vietnam veterans would leave coins as a “down payment” to buy their fallen comrades a beer or play a hand of cards when they would finally be reunited. The tradition of leaving coins on the headstones of military men and women can be traced to as far back as the Roman Empire. www.InsideTrackAlmanac.com

My In Conclusive Travel Plans….

I

have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone. I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there. I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work. I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore. I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often. I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm. Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older. One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get! I may have been in Continent, but I don’t remember what country I was in. It’s an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.

Discover Historic Treasures From The Sea

I

n December of 1992, World Famous Treasure Hunter Mel Fisher opened a permanent museum 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 in 1963. 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 Nuestra Senora de Atocha, a 1622 shipwreck estimated to be worth over $400,000,000. In 1985 Mel and his crew discovered the primary cultural deposit or “Mother Load” and became world renowned. The Mel Fisher Treasure Museum houses a vast array of artifacts salvaged from the local 1715 Fleet as well as the heavily laden Spanish galleon Atocha, amongst other various shipwrecks. When you enter Mel Fisher’s Treasure Museum you will join the millions who have witnessed the most spectacular collection of Spanish artifacts and treasure ever assembled. You will be granted the opportunity to lift a solid gold bar recovered from the ocean depths of the Atocha wreck site. There is also a unique gift shop where you can own a “piece of history”, rare gold escudos or silver reales in fine jewelry settings, museum quality recreations as well as other nautical gifts. The Fisher family was in charge of the salvage operations off the Treasure Coast from 1983-2009 and is still currently salvaging treasure from the Atocha and her sister ship the Margarita.

A Destination Shop for the Treasure Coast

S

unshine Furniture is the largest store of its kind on the Treasure Coast and winner of the 2012 Apollo Award for Best Single Store Casual Furniture Retailer in the country. Started in 1991 by Gail Williams (with a really small location) the showroom has grown to 35,000 square feet and the 2nd generation has taken over. Her son George, who was born in Vero Beach, runs the day-to-day operations coordinating all incoming freight, outgoing deliveries, inventory, orders and customer service. Gail now does all the bookwork, advertising and helps keep the showroom floor fresh and new. They are a real LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED retail 32

store employing 20 local people that all live in Vero Beach. Sunshine Furniture still sells some of the original manufacturers they started with 23 years ago – Lloyd Flanders, Classic Rattan and Classic Cushions and Umbrellas. The first showroom was so small these were about all the vendors we could fit in the tight space. They also have one employee that has been there since the start, Diane Crockett, who is now a licensed ASID Interior Designer. Gail and Diane still laugh about how tiny the store was. “We used to put one color patio table with 4 different style chairs and then put another one on top of the table so we were www.InsideTrackAlmanac.com


really showing the customer 5 different groups and then hang chairs on the walls just to show as much product as possible” said Gail. “Most of those customers we had then are still our customers today and now we are selling their children and grandchildren furniture which is really great. The one thing I know is if you treat your customer well, offer them quality merchandise, have a knowledgeable sales staff and good customer service, they will come back year after year and also refer their neighbor and family members”. Sunshine Furniture is known as the outdoor furniture experts who know first hand what lasts outside in the harsh Florida climate. “We have worked hard weeding through Volume 19 • Issue 2

many, many manufacturers but now we know which ones REALLY hold up to the salt air and those are the ones we sell” explained Gail. “With so much product being made overseas now, it’s become harder for the consumer to identify the true value. The prices are attractive but if you have to replace it in a year why bother to buy it in the first place? We have carried Lloyd Flanders for 23 years and are their largest single store location in the country. Their Loom Wicker is still made in Menominee, Michigan and has been for 75 years. Some of our customers have had Lloyd Flanders 25 years and it still looks fantastic. We like to sell things that last.” The expansive showroom is filled with accessory items like 33


outdoor pillows, acrylic dishware, lamps and rugs. They also sell allweather draperies to make your outdoor space look like an indoor room. Gas fire pits in all shapes and sizes are a favorite as well. Sunshine Furniture also specializes in coastal and casual looks for inside your home with dining and bedroom styles by manufacturers like Tommy Bahama, Lexington, Stanley Coastal Living and Universal. They have the largest selection of upholstery including slip cover sofas, sleeper sofas, chairs and ottomans in slip cover styles (which is very popular here) by Capris and Four Seasons and even do with performance fabrics that can be thrown in the washing machine for easy care. Select from hundreds of occasional pieces like cocktail, end and console tables, plasma television stands and book cases. Everything at Sunshine Furniture is light and airy to compliment the Florida beach home. It’s not unusual for 34

seasonal residents to move their beloved heavy wood furnishings down, only to redecorate with lighter look to fit their Florida lifestyle. They also specialize in reclaimed wood pieces, many which are one of a kind, still carry the largest selection of wicker and rattan for all rooms of the house and have more pictures, lamps and accessories than any store around. They make house calls, design service is complimentary and have a complete selection of plantation shutters, wood blinds, draperies and bedspreads. Delivery is never a problem as they deliver statewide and drop ship anywhere. Sunshine Furniture is located next to Planet Fitness at 1295 US1 in the Publix Plaza on the corner of 12th Street and US1 in Vero Beach. Store hours are Mon-Sat from 10am to 4pm. You can also shop their online store 24 hours a day at www.Sunshinefurniturecasual.com. www.InsideTrackAlmanac.com

Serves a Healthy Dose of Local Craft Beer!

F

or those of you who thought drinking beer might be detrimental to your health, think again. Sailfish Brewing Company, a local brewery in Ft. Pierce, uses fresh fruit and herbs from their own garden and local growers to brew unique craft beers with no additives or sugar. “Our beers are brewed from all natural grains and fruits so you get the health benefits along with the great taste,” explained Al Beltran, general manager of Sailfish Brewing Company. “We pick Eucalyptus and Mangos from the big trees on our property and soon we will be growing more herbs and vegetables as well. Our beers are so unique in flavor that even non-beer drinkers will find something they like!” 40

www.InsideTrackAlmanac.com


Sailfish Brewing Company, which opened about a year ago on 2nd Street in Ft. Pierce, was actually started in the garage of Nick Bischoff ’s Vero Beach home. He and two friends brewed craft beer that was so popular with friends they brought it to the public. The brewery now occupies two buildings in the historic section of Ft. Pierce. Friends gather in the cozy tasting room to sample the latest concoctions and share fishing stories. The adjacent building houses the working brewery where braumeister Kevin Storm oversees the creation of the craft beers from the mixing of ingredients, to the fermentation and curing of the blend. Follow the lushly landscaped walkway between the two buildings to the shaded deck where beer aficionados gather to share good food and libations with friends. Food is not sold at Sailfish Brewing Company but gladly given away to patrons. “We bring in pizza from Goodfellas Pizza on Saturdays from 1 to 5 and I’m outside grilling throughout the weekend” said Beltran. “I try to pair our food with our craft beers and often use beer in the recipes! We have live music every weekend and we draw a beautiful crowd of people who just enjoy a good beer and camaraderie. They come to relax, play ring toss, Jinga and more.” Recently Sailfish Brewing Company started distributing their local beer in two Vero Beach restaurants but their heart and soul is in downtown Ft. Pierce. “We have immersed ourselves in this community and strive to make this a destination” explained Beltran. Well-done boys. Sailfish Brewing Company is well worth the visit!

Record Number of Sea Turtles Nesting on our Shores

2013

was a record year for sea turtle nesting along the Treasure Coast, producing the largest number of green turtle nests ever recorded, and local experts are hoping for another banner crop this year. Leatherback turtles are the first to arrive in late February or March. Loggerheads follow from April through July. The last to nest are the green turtles who show up late May through October. According to nesting counts issued by the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, 13,155 loggerheads, 12,846 green turtles, and 49 leatherback turtles laid eggs last year along the Treasure Coast and Southern Brevard County. Even 2 Kemp turtle nests were discovered for the first time on our shores in well over a decade. The total comes to 3775 more than last year! If you are lucky enough to witness a sea turtle as she lumbers to shore, keep your distance as you observe one of nature’s greatest gifts. It takes hours for her to haul herself up the dune, dig a hole and deposit nearly 100 eggs. She then buries them and crawls back into the ocean leaving tire-like tracks in the sand. After incubating for approximately two months, the hatchlings erupt as a group and scurry to the waters edge following the light of the moon. Many are distracted by nearby lights and head in the wrong direction to be crushed by cars or roasted in the sun. Others will fall victim to raccoons or birds. Those who make it offshore spend the next two years clinging to seaweed and drifting along coastal currents. Thousands drown in shrimp trawls and fishing gear. Only a few reach maturity and may live for 20 or 30 years, spending their entire life in the ocean. The only time the sea turtle comes ashore is when the female lays her eggs. It takes about 15 years before a turtle can reproduce but when she does, after traveling thousands of miles, she’ll return to the same beach of her birth. Turtle Watching Tips: Minimize beachfront lighting by turning off , shielding or redirecting light away from the beach. Use your natural vision and moonlight when walking on the beach at night as flashlights may deter the turtle from coming ashore. If you see a nesting turtle, remain quiet and still and at a distance. Flash photography, flashlights or human disturbance may prevent her from nesting successfully. Leave turtle tracks undisturbed as researchers use the tracks to identify the species and mark the nests from protection.

Better Vision Means Safer Driving

Cindi Green, RN – Florida Eye Institute

D

id you know untreated conditions like cataract increase the chance of car accident by as much as fifty percent? It makes sense that decreased vision translates to higher accident risk; but many drivers fail to recognize their own limitations. Half of adults age 65 or older report ‘I see fine, I have no trouble driving’ when first diagnosed with cataracts, a condition that gradually impairs visual acuity. Cataracts can cause a variety of visual changes: blurred vision; trouble with glare (from bright sun or headlights when driving at night), dulled color vision; and increased nearsightedness with frequent changes to eyeglass prescriptions. But a study published in the American Medical Association Journal shows a strong correlation between untreated cataracts and an increased risk of crash statistics. The study showed drivers who elected cataract replacement had half the rate of auto accidents compared with those delaying treatment. One important way to improve driver safety is to schedule annual eye exams with an ophthalmologist - an eye MD – especially for those 55 or older. Visit your eye doctor even if you have no visual problems; many eye conditions begin without symptoms or warning. Talk to your eye doctor about driving and your vision and take to the road in confidence.

Environmental Learning Center Boat Excursions

E

xploring the Indian River Lagoon, Pelican Island, and the St. Sebastian River aboard the Environmental Learning Center’s pontoon boat, also known as a “floating classroom,” is an up close and personal way of learning about and appreciating one of the most diverse environments in North America. Excursions sail from the ELC on Wabasso Island into the Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge. Separate morning and afternoon trips give participants the opportunity to see the bird species that nest, rest, and feed on Pelican Island at close range. The onboard guide identifies the species encountered, discusses the ecology of the Lagoon, and how it might be preserved. Brown and white pelicans, egret, ibis, kingfishers, and herons are often on the island or nearby. Migrating birds gather on the mangrove islands, and manatees and dolphins may be seen throughout the trip. The St. Sebastian River boat excursion explores the south prong of the Sebastian River. This aquatic preserve is part of the Indian River Lagoon watershed. The trip is guided by an ELC Naturalist who will point out the natural wonders of the area. Lucky boaters may spot alligators, wading birds, eagles, ospreys, and manatees. The schedule of the various boating excursions is available on the ELC’s web site, www.DiscoverELC.org. Reservations, may be made by calling the ELC at (772) 589-5050.
