The District leases all that property to
IRMC, a separate management corpora-
tion that runs the hospital.

IRMC has some ownership claims too,
however. In 1996, it formed a real estate
investment arm, Health Systems of In-
dian River Inc., a nonprofit corporation
with a board of directors that mirrors
the hospital’s board. Along with own-

to IRMC. While the foundation techni-
cally doesn’t own property, it could be
reimbursed a portion of those donations
if it doesn’t approve of the new hospital

Indian River County also could have
a claim on sale proceeds. A relatively re-
cent state law caught Hospital District
officials by surprise last year when they
discovered it provides for counties to get
half of the proceeds from the sale of a
District-owned hospital. Those proceeds
would be paid out not for healthcare di-
rectly, as the taxes the District collects
are, but for new healthcare related busi-
ness ventures.

An attorney for the hospital, Jon Gatto,
who specializes in public hospital leases,
warned the IRMC board in a November
meeting that if any deal with a partner in
the months ahead isn’t precisely struc-
tured, the 50-50 split could be triggered
and a public referendum could be re-
quired to approve the sale.

Such a vote is spelled out in the legisla-
ture’s special act that formed the Hospital

“Prior to any decision to sell all or sub-
stantially all of the facilities which make
up Indian River Memorial Hospital, the
district shall cause a referendum to be
held at which the electors of Indian Riv-
er County shall have the opportunity to
express their approval or disapproval of
the proposed sale,” states the special act.

It appears Bayswaters executives – as
well as Icahn Enterprises, billionaire Carl
Icahn’s New York-based conglomerate,
which owns the Cape Cod real estate com-
pany – got the message.

“A combination of things happened that
led the powers-that-be to realize there
were some unhappy campers down here,”
Grand Harbor resident Doug Sweeny said.
“Maybe it was the letter. Maybe it was the
newspaper article. Somehow, word got to
Icahn’s headquarters in New York.”

And things began to change.
Frandsen sent a letter to Grand Harbor
members in September, informing them
that the summer reciprocal agreements
with other Vero Beach-area clubs would
be reinstated, the increase in annual dues
would not be as large as projected and

available for play. The new and improved
practice area is expected to open soon.
In addition, the club has hired a new

“If you took a snapshot five or six
months ago, you’d see people frustrated

said. “Now, you’d see something consid-

They’re seeing things change, and they’re
encouraged by it.”
Perhaps the greatest cause for optimism
is an apparent change in management’s
“There seems to be a willingness to get
member input,” Sweeny said, “and if the
people in New York have a better under-
standing of Grand Harbor, that’s a win-win
for everyone involved.”

Kline’s new Shingrix vaccine for shingles
last month, it also took the extraordinary
step of recommending it replace the exist-
ing Zostavax shingles vaccine.

A tsunami of good press promptly followed.
The New York Times quoted Dr. Rafael
Harpaz, a veteran shingles researcher at
the Centers for Disease Control, as saying
“this really is a sea change” in the preven-
tion of shingles, and Dr. William Schaffner,
a preventive disease specialist at the Van-
derbilt University School of Medicine, who
claimed “this vaccine has spectacular ini-
tial protection rates in every age group. The
immune system of a 70- or 80 year-old re-
sponds as if the person were only 25 or 30.”
The Washington Post added, “Shingrix
is 97 percent effective against shingles
for those 50 to 59 years old, compared to
about 70 percent for Zostavax, data show.
For those in their 60s, the new vaccine is 97
percent effective, compared to 64 percent
for Zostavax. For those in their 70s, Shin-
grix is 91 percent effective, compared to
about 41 percent for Zostavax.”
Not to be outdone, the Times then ran an-
other article a few days later with the head-

line: “No excuses, people: get the new shin- plaining, “How much capital I’m going to ex-

he admired Gooch’s own contemporary

bring his neophyte’s skills into her class.

After he “got up enough nerve” to study
under her, Kenyon worked with Gooch in
her museum class for about a year. During
that time he met Tim Sanchez, a well-known
Vero painter and good friend of Gooch who
would drop in on her classes to say hello.

the vinaigrette gave it a bright taste. My
husband’s salad was a thing of beauty,
with the sliced beets set among arugu-

a walnut vinaigrette.

One of the things I most like about The
Wave is it has something for every mem-
ber of your party. On this evening, I was
thinking seafood, and there were four
different local fish to choose from. I was
tempted by the tripletail – a delicious fish
that you don’t see on menus too often –
but finally opted for the redfish.

My husband was craving steak, and from
five choices, he decided to go with the dry-
aged New York strip ($40). Our companion
was thinking Cuban, and she chose the pollo
a la plancha – pan-seared herb marinated
chicken breast ($21) from the Estefan Kitch-
en menu.

The entrées turned out to be exactly
what each of us was looking for. My red-
fish, perfectly cooked, could not have
been fresher, and was served over a very
interesting beet-infused risotto with pick-
led beets on the side.

My husband’s steak was brought to the
table sizzling on a red-hot stone, and was
accompanied at his request by yucca fries
as a substitute for mashed potatoes. A bit
of American-Cuban mix-and-match. And
our companion’s flavorful Cuban chick-
en was served with delicious black beans,
white rice and plantains.

On a previous visit, we sampled one of
The Wave’s new appetizers – the New Or-
leans-style barbeque shrimp ($15). This
dish consisted of seven lovely shrimp, pre-
pared with amber beer, Worcestershire,
lemon and rosemary, and accompanied
by a biscuit. These were so good that I

how many tricks can East-West take?

A heart to the jack, a spade to the nine and 10, a heart through and a second spade at
trick seven give the defenders five hearts and six spades for down seven!

Finally, note that if East were in four hearts, after South leads the diamond ace, North
should signal with his queen. Then South continues with a low diamond for the killing
club-queen shift.
