LUCIE COUNTY After posten-US -en-US poning its May 2 hearing in order to en-US incorporate Sheriff Ken Mascaras sugen-US -en-US gestions, the St. Lucie County Commisen-US -en-US sion voted unanimously May 16 to en-US expand the distance between medical en-US marijuana clinics from one to five miles en-US and limit the number to three in the en-US unincorporated areas of the county. en-US The final vote came during the Comen-US -en-US missions fourth discussion on the proen-US-en-US posed zoning for such clinics. During en-US the March 16 Planning & Zoning Comen-US -en-US mission discussion on the topic, county en-US staff actually reduced the mile separation en-US to 1,000 feet after some of that boards en-US members worried the larger separation en-US might stifle competition. With that lower en-US separation distance, Assistant County en-US Attorney Katherine Barbieri had en-US informed the members that 128 medical en-US cannabis dispensaries could potentially en-US fit in the countys Commercial General en-US Zone, not including potential clinics in en-US the cities of Fort Pierce and Port St. en-US Lucie. With a mile separation, that numen-US -en-US ber would drop to 32. Commissioner en-US Cathy Townsend expressed dissatisfacen-US -en-US tion with the mile separation on May 2, en-US asking for more separation and the creen-US -en-US ation of an inspection process of the en-US clinics for county law enforcement peren-US -en-US sonnel. Sheriff Mascara concurred with en-US those sentiments and sent a letter to en-US county staff in the interim requesting the en-US five-mile separation and a maximum of en-US three clinics county-wide. en-USCounty en-US hashes en-US out clinicen-US conditionsen-USBy Donald Rodrigueen-USFor Hometown News The St. Lucie en-USCounty 4H Club en-US hosted Wags and en-US Water Park at the en-US Indian Hills Stormen-US -en-US water Treatment en-US and Recreational en-US Area in Fort Pierce en-US on Saturday, May en-US 13.

Most of what I en-US teach I have had practical experience with en-US so I try to incorporate that into my courses. en-US My goal is to not only teach the student to en-US pass the exams, but also to prepare them for en-US as many of the real-world situations that en-US they may encounter early in their career. I en-US also encourage them to invest in their own en-US properties. For example, I explain how an en-US FHA loan of four units or less can be en-US obtained with all the benefits of a home loan en-US for as little as 3.5 percent down. In the en-US meantime, while youre waiting for the equien-US -en-US ty to build, the tenants are helping you pay en-US your mortgage.en-US Where I think most people fail in this en-US industry is that they just cant get their sea en-US legs under them in that initial period after en-US becoming a licensed real estate agent, not en-US knowing that the best is yet to come. The en-US greatest source of income in our industry en-US are referrals, and thats where the bulk of en-US your customers are going to come from. en-US That can take time to establish but word-of-en-US mouth advertising is truly worth its weight en-US in gold. en-US The Indian River School of Real Estate en-US Web site has a comprehensive How it en-US Works page to help guide anybody interesten-US -en-US ed in becoming licensed through the step-en-US by-step process of beginning their profesen-US -en-US sional career in real estate. The available en-US courses include everything from the initialen-US -en-US ly required state approved 63-Hour Pre-Lien-US-en-US censing Course to the 72-Hour Broker and en-US Continuing Education classes for existing en-US agents. en-US The question JT says he is asked the most en-US is, what do I do first and what will it cost en-US so he has tried to answer these and other en-US common question with all the related links en-US on the FAQs page. Although JTs teaching en-US experience includes instructing the general en-US public on fire safety and paramedic training en-US while he was in the fire service for over 20 en-US years, he likes to occasionally attend other en-US schools to see how their instructors present en-US the course material. He believes this helps en-US him improve his own ability by observing en-US how other people teach the classes and also en-US to see things from the perspective of the stuen-US -en-US dent. en-US I think we have a better product than en-US most schools out there because we make en-US every attempt to present the material in a en-US clear and understandable way, focusing on en-US what really matters, he said. en-US For more information about the Indian en-US River School of Real Estate, please visit the en-US Web page at www.indianriverschoolofrealen-US-en-US or call the office at 772-353-2994 en-US for information about classes.en-USLearning real estate has never been this easyBy Gaylon en-USJames JT TobaschusS.E.

en-US 4 en-USSen-USummer is here and so is the summer en-US heat! Summertime in Florida is en-US officially launched with the Memorial en-US Day holiday weekend and a time when we en-US break out the grill, head to the beach and en-US enjoy fun in the sun. But, Memorial Day is en-US much more than sun, fun, food and friends. en-US As we approach the Memorial Day en-US holiday, I thought it was appropriate to en-US share the history behind such a day. en-US Originally declared by General John Logan en-US in 1868, it wasnt officially recognized for en-US almost 100 years when President Lyndon B. en-US Johnson did so in 1966. It was first called en-US Decoration Day as people mourning the en-US loss of those killed in battle were encouren-US -en-US aged to decorate gravesites with flowers. en-US Gravesites now are usually adorned with en-US American flags. In fact, the 3rd U.S. en-US Infantry Regiment (known as the Old en-US Guard) annually places American flags en-US next to more than 200,000 headstones in en-US Arlington National Cemetery in preparaen-US -en-US tion for Memorial Day.en-US As we prepare to celebrate the 149th en-US observance of Memorial Day, we are en-US reminded of the many who have sacrificed en-US the ultimate cost for our rights to continue en-US in the unwavering exercise of freedom and en-US liberty. en-US Recently, our county joined others en-US around the country in recognizing law en-US enforcement who have paid the ultimate en-US sacrifice through National Police Week. Its en-US always a sobering moment to step back and en-US consider what these heroes did to serve en-US their community and give their life doing en-US so. Sadly, seven deputies from our agency en-US have died while serving their community: en-US Sheriff Daniel S. Carlton, Sheriff William en-US Robert Monroe, Deputy Soren S. Sorensen, en-US Sergeant Harold F. Pappy Holerger, en-US Master Deputy Steve Roberts, Master en-US Deputy Joseph S. Hover and Sergeant Gary en-US Morales.en-US While these fallen comrades were not in en-US active military duty, a hallmark of the en-US Memorial Day tradition, they were all en-US actively protecting our rights as residents of en-US St. Lucie County. en-US As we join with friends and family on en-US May 29 to share in food and fellowship, I en-US encourage each of you to remember those en-US who have given so much. Let us encourage en-US those we know who have lost someone in en-US war or in the line of duty to stand proud to en-US have loved, known, or worked with these en-US heroes. en-US Memorial Day also signifies another en-US important reminder for us as Floridians, en-US hurricane season. Take a few moments and en-US makes sure you and your family are en-US prepared and have a plan in the event a en-US storm comes our way. en-US If you are a resident of North or South en-US Hutchinson Island, please be sure you have en-US received a barrier island re-entry placard. en-US These placards will allow you to re-enter en-US the island more efficiently after a storm has en-US cleared our area. You can obtain a placard at en-US our main office, the St. Lucie West Courten-US -en-US house or at either St. Lucie County Tax en-US Collector location in Fort Pierce or Port St. en-US Lucie.en-US Another important task to consider is en-US subscribing to the new ALERT St. Lucie en-US notification system. This new system will en-US allow you to receive phone calls, text en-US messages and emails notifying you of en-US important information related to emergenen-US -en-US cies, disasters or neighborhood criminal en-US activity.en-US For more information on the barrier en-US island placard or the ALERT St. Lucie en-US system, or for general information on how en-US to prepared for a hurricane, visit our en-US website at and click en-US on Im Looking For.en-US Ken Mascara is the St. Lucie County en-US Sheriff Celebrate the life of your loved ones with an ad in The Hometown News.

Now, I am getting en-US some from people I have never heard of.en-US My husband also gets the same mailings, en-US so add that up.en-US We do give to several of these, but at my en-US choosing, not theirs. Again, they fill up the en-US garbage can very quickly.en-US Any ideas how to stop this?en-US Thank you for your papers. They are very en-US good.en-USDo some research en-USWe should take a look at Canadas Worken-US -en-US ers Program, which just started for this haren-US -en-US vest season.en-US The Canadians admit workers from Mexen-US -en-US ico for eight months; then they return to en-US Mexico.en-US We had the same program during World en-US War II, called the Brazero Program. Also, en-US in the 1950s and 1960s, we had the Work en-US Program, bringing Jamaicans to work in en-US the sugar cane fields. They arrived in Miami en-US under the Meranda Charter flights with Pan en-US Am Airways.en-US Are we going to put a Naval blockade in en-US the Florida Straits to keep Cubans and Haien-US -en-US tians (out)? Also, what is the Immigration en-US and Customs Enforcement going to do with en-US more than one million Irish families that are en-US here illegally?en-US The more than 50,000 Cubans who have en-US deportation orders, but the Castro Regime en-US doesnt want them back.en-US I remember from my American history en-US classes that the know-nothing Republien-US-en-US cans in the 1860s did not want Irish, nor en-US Germans, because they were Catholics and en-US considered un-Americans.en-US So, before you label people who want to en-US come to America as un-Americans, do some en-US research.en-USPets in danger on black asphalten-USThis is a bit of a rant, but mainly a warnen-US -en-US ing to dog owners/walkers by the beach.en-US It saddens and worries me to see that the en-US bike path that has been on these roads for en-US many years, where many people bike, run, en-US walk and walk their dogs, has been nicely en-US repaved about a year ago, I think, by city/en-US county.en-US I dont know who exactly, but by putting en-US down black asphalt, our dear pets are in en-US great danger if walked almost any time en-US during the summer. Their poor little paws en-US will be burned, and they often dont let you en-US know they are hurting.en-US Are we having fun yet?en-USWe could have super slip and slides, with en-US fun rides, run by solar picnic pavilions, en-US along the way.en-US And, we would raise the river level by en-US 1-inch per mile, per day just enough to en-US reverse net flows and help change the waters en-US in the problem areas, enabling more life.en-US Our tax money is there and the en-US multi-splendored benefits are possible at en-US low cost.

A slide is not a babysitter. en-USFamily values?en-USThe breakdown of family values and en-US morals are not due to same-sex marriage. It en-US has to do with the divorce rate, domestic en-US abuse, pedophile priests, violent video en-US games and lack of parental controls, to list a en-US few.en-US Stop trying to blame same-sex marriage en-US for all the issues that have been building up en-US for the last two decades, long before same-en-US sex marriage came to the forefront.en-US Same-sex couples and heterosexual couen-US -en-US ples are not perfect; so, instead of sitting en-USaround ranting, you and your Christian en-US community should get up and be part of the en-US solution to the problems.en-USTurn signalsen-USOf course, everyone who has driven has en-US noticed the 50-60 percent of the inconsideren-US -en-US ate drivers who are too lazy and uncaring to en-US use turn signals.

Come and visit Sammie at Dogs and Cats Forever in Fort Pierce.en-USLooking for a home en-USspecial magistrates appointed by a court to en-US handle code enforcement issues in the state, en-US the same way in which the Fort Pierce Code en-US Enforcement Board has also been handling en-US the issues in the past. en-US I think its fair to say they are both capaen-US -en-US ble of doing the same thing, he said. en-US Commissioner Thomas Perona who en-US previously opposed the idea of dismantling en-US the Code Enforcement Board -supported en-US the decision and admitted his views en-US changed after he attended two special magen-US -en-US istrate hearings. en-US For the most part, the petitioners en-US thanked the special magistrate for their en-US compassion, their instruction and their en-US education, he said. The product was very en-US good and I was very proud of the city and en-US the way that we had the law of our codes en-US upheld.en-US Commissioner Perona believes the legal en-US challenges facing the city are becoming en-US increasingly more complicated, another en-US reason he gave for his about-face. Still, he en-US credits the volunteer board members for en-US having provided the city an invaluable seren-US -en-US vice in the past. en-US Commissioner Reginald Sessions disen-US -en-US sented on the 4-1 vote, saying he still wasnt en-US convinced abolishing the Code Enforceen-US -en-US ment Board was the best move for the city.en-US I just have some concerns about taking en-US away the duties of a group of individuals en-US that are diverse in terms of the members en-US and where they live to make the decisions en-US on code enforcement of our city, he said. en-US Commissioner Jeremiah Johnson said he en-US also appreciated the effort made by the volen-US-en-US unteers over the years but felt the numbers en-US spoke for themselves.en-US If you look at the number of cases scheden-US -en-US uled and you look at the numbers, our speen-US -en-US cial magistrates combined saw 252 cases en-US and our Board saw 86 cases, and thats quite en-US a substantial difference in the two, he said. en-US At this point, Im looking to evolve and to en-US change and looking at efficiencies in our en-US city, and I think that this is one of those en-US methods and techniques.en-US Mayor Hudson concurred, comparing en-US the change to when the city decided to hire en-US its own attorney instead of outsourcing the en-US citys legal work.en-US One of the things that we did ask our en-US attorney to do was help us with streamlinen-US -en-US ing our organization and preventing risk en-US and lawsuits, she said. One of the things en-US he did was bring someone in and educate us en-US on quasi-judicial hearings. So my vote en-US tonight has nothing to do with the job that en-US the Code Enforcement Board did because en-US they have done an excellent job.en-US Mr. Messer warned commissioners, howen-US-en-US ever, that the process would not end with en-US just the Code Enforcement Board, but en-US would also end up affecting the Zoning en-US Board of Adjustment and the Construction en-US Board of Adjustment & Appeals.en-US Tonight only involves the Code Enforceen-US -en-US ment Board, but I want everyone to underen-US -en-US stand that once we start down this road, en-US there are two others that Ill be bringing to en-US you for a discussion, he explained. Now, en-US were not going to do all that tonight, but if en-US we start down this road, thats where were en-US going to end up because the result will be en-US that there will be literally no boards that en-US have quasi-judicial authority. They will all en-US be transferred to a magistrate.en-USCodeen-USFrom page 1


en-US 8 en-USOen-USnce upon a time there was this guy en-US who was so enamored with cloud en-US computing that he stuck all of his en-US digital eggs in one basket and in the blink of en-US an eye lost it all. The end. en-US Alright, OK, Im sure there are enough of en-US you reading this wondering what in the en-US world Im going on about this week so I en-US suppose I ought to take a few words to en-US explain. You see I recently read an article en-US online (an open letter to Google actually) en-US written by a very distraught fellow who en-US wanted Google to know just how badly they en-US messed up when they locked him out of all en-US of his data.en-US The poor guy goes on to explain that he en-US spent months switching all of his email over en-US to gmail, all of his photos over to Googles en-US photo service (Picasa), all of his docs to en-US Google Docs etc. etc. etcetera. After en-US painstakingly moving all of his data to Gooen-US -en-US gles servers (wherever the hell they are) he en-US woke up one day to find out his account en-US had been closed due to a terms of service en-US violation which he swears up and down he en-US didnt commit. en-US The bottom line is he spent a consideren-US -en-US able amount of time moving his entire en-US digital inventory up to Googles cloud, en-US didnt make any provisions to back any of it en-US up and then (just as Murphys law en-US demands) found himself completely locked en-US out.en-US Now, this column isnt about whether en-US Google had a right to lock him out of his en-US account or not nor is it some type of cry out en-US to the powers that be to change the way our en-US data is safeguarded when we hand it over to en-US the cloud. Its more of a cautionary tale to en-US remind us of that which we already know en-US back up everything! Even when entrusten-US -en-US ing your data to the cloud, back it to a local en-US drive as well! To not do so is just asking for en-US it.en-US First the decision to use a cloud service en-US may be a decision that many are not even en-US aware that they are making. Let me try to en-US clarify a couple things, take email for en-US example. If you are accessing your email en-US through your web browser by going to en-US,, www.en-US or any of the other email services en-US that offer web based mail service then en-US guess what? Your email is being stored and en-US managed in the cloud and if you should en-US find yourself in violation of the terms of en-US service you too could find yourself locked en-US out. (Just how well did you read those en-US terms when you signed up? You know, the en-US terms you have to click the Accept button en-US for in order to set up your account?)en-US Most email services allow the downloaden-US -en-US ing of email to a local email client which is en-US present on each and every machine out en-US there Windows, Mac or Linux. You can set en-US up your computers email program en-US (Windows Live Mail, Outlook, Outlook en-US Express for those machines still running en-US Windows XP, Mail on Macs) by configuren-US -en-US ing the POP or IMAP settings. Look it en-US up in your email services help settings and en-US if your email service doesnt provide for it en-US then you may want to consider an alternaen-US -en-US tive.en-US Next lets look at the folly of uploading all en-US of your digital pictures to a service like en-US Googles Picasa Web Albums and then en-US deleting the local copies after you upload all en-US of your pictures. Why on earth would en-US anyone do that? Well Sean, we dont want en-US all these duplicates now do we? Well, en-US actually, you do. en-US Sure uploading all of your photos to a en-US web based service is great but for Gods en-US sakes, dont get rid of the originals! Did you en-US know that you can get 8 gigabyte thumb en-US drives from just about any drugstore en-US nowadays for about 10 bucks! Do you know en-US how many duplicate photos you can store en-US on 8 gigs? Then if anything happens to your en-US web albums you luckily will have all of en-US those pesky duplicates to fall back on.en-US The list goes on Google Docs Sure en-US save all of your Docs to cloud storage but en-US how about synchronizing them with a local en-US folder on your own machine, you know, just en-US in case Google goes belly up it will be nice en-US to have a backup. en-US As the concept of cloud computing en-US becomes all encompassing its important to en-US remember that its your data. Dont just en-US assume that they will protect it for you.en-US Sean McCarthy can be reached at en-US help@en-US ComputeThisOnline.comen-US (no hyphens).

en-US 9 en-USDuring the latest meeting, Ms. Barbieri en-US gave the Commission two choices: Option en-US A, which set the minimum distance of meden-US -en-US ical marijuana dispensaries at one mile and en-US a minimum of 1,000 feet from schools and en-US parks; and Option B, which added licensed en-US daycare facilities, religious institutions and en-US liquor stores to the 1,000-foot minimum en-US distance, increased the distance between en-US clinics to five miles and incorporated the en-US aforementioned inspection process. en-US It has the other requirements but it limits en-US the number to three and allows inspections en-US by the sheriff, the fire inspector and builden-US -en-US ing and code enforcement officers, she said. en-US The ordinance is mildly based on Osceola en-US [County] which has a five mile separation. en-US Staff is asking that you consider both of en-US them and give direction.en-US Commissioner Frannie Hutchinson en-US immediately expressed opposition to the en-US latter part of the second option, worrying en-US that the explicit, tighter restrictions might en-US send the county down a path of potential en-US lawsuits, particularly since the Florida legisen-US -en-US lature has not finished crafting its own reguen-US -en-US lations. en-US No more than three -thats overkill, she en-US said. Youve already limited that with the en-US zoning. I think this is like taking it one step en-US way too far.en-US In defense of Sheriff Ken Mascaras en-US request, Captain Doug Hardy explained that en-US local law enforcement primarily wanted to en-US develop a relationship with the owners and en-US employees of such clinics. en-US We want to make sure that theyre comen-US -en-US pliant and make sure that our needs are met, en-US along with St. Lucie Countys and the resien-US -en-US dents, he said. We want to be able to make en-US sure that the relationship is established, and en-US that they are following the rules.en-US Commissioner Townsend then proceeded en-US to hash out a consensus with the opposing en-US commissioner, with both agreeing to elimien-US -en-US nate the reference in Option B to fire inspecen-US -en-US tors and code enforcement personnel. en-US Commissioner Tod Mowery worried that en-US their agreement could weaken law enforceen-US -en-US ment efforts, but County Attorney Dan en-US McIntyre believed the zoning restrictions en-US would be sufficient.en-US It gives law enforcement the right to go en-US in and inspect, and the purpose of the en-US inspection is to see compliance with the en-US law, he said. I dont think it limits them: It en-US just gives them the right of access, which is en-US what they want.en-US Only one member of the public spoke, en-US Marian McNicholas of Colorado-based en-US Green Solution, which markets legal recreen-US-en-US ational marijuana products in that state. Ms. en-US McNicholas said she has followed zoning en-US efforts around the state and bragged on the en-US Commissions efforts to regulate the new en-US industry.en-US Weve worked throughout the state and en-US we recognize that yours is clearly becoming en-US a model, which others are probably going to en-US want to follow, she said. We also just want en-US to applaud you for your close work with the en-US Sheriffs Office and also county administraen-US -en-US tion in setting this model. If there are any en-US questions you have, wed love to be a en-US resource and assist you with any of that.en-US If the county were to solicit the aid of Ms. en-US McNicholas and her organization, it might en-US be considered akin by some to asking the en-US fox to guard the henhouse. According to the en-US Green Solution website, the firm has won en-US over 50 awards for our quality flower, conen-US -en-US centrates, and edibles, [and] our family of en-US retail Associates is sharp-dressed and well-en-US equipped with the concierge-level expertise en-US needed to craft each individuals cannabis en-US experience. The only other public speaker en-US recently on the issue was Michael Patterson, en-US the CEO of Melbourne-based U.S. Cannabis en-US Pharmaceutical Research and Development, en-US who unsuccessfully tried to convince the en-US Commission May 2 to eliminate the higher en-US distances between dispensaries. The organien-US -en-US zations of both public speakers are known en-US for their efforts in the legalization of recreen-US -en-US ational marijuana in all of its forms around en-US the country.

The 11th Annual Hurricane Preen-US -en-US paredness Expo will be hosted June 3 from en-US 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Port St. Lucie Civic en-US Center, and officials call it a one-stop shop en-US for hurricane veterans or people new to the en-US area to learn all they need to know about en-US how to be ready for storm season.en-US The event is expected to draw about en-US 1,600-1,700 residents and Is one of the more en-US popular items on the citys calendar each en-US year. It is a good way for people to meet dozen-US -en-US ens of vendors all at once and get a handle en-US on the possibilities on the near horizon. en-US There will be about 70 booths and exhibien-US -en-US tors on hand at the Expo and weather en-US experts from local TV news.en-US Each year, we have been pretty fortunate en-US to not have anything crazy since and en-US each year residents might be able to say, I en-US cant afford storm shutters this year, but next en-US year we can get them, said PSL Special en-US Works Coordinator Christina Daigle. So en-US maybe this is the year they decide to get en-US them and they can get in contact with those en-US companies.en-US The Hurricane Preparedness Expo will en-US lead off with a presentation from Mayor en-US Gregory Oravec and there will be other slots en-US filled by the American Red Cross and meteen-US-en-US orologists throughout the afternoon. There en-US will be registration for special-needs shelen-US -en-US ters there, as well as advice on what people en-US can do with their pets in the event of a en-US storm. en-USIts a nice educational push from the city en-US and all of our partnering agencies and from en-US the local businesses we have as well, Ms. en-US Daigle said. The goal of the city is certainly en-US to try and put residents in contact with en-US those experts and those businesses and proen-US -en-US fessionals who can provide them with the en-US information that they need.en-US Another goal is to protect life and properen-US -en-US ty for residents, Ms. Daigle said, and new en-US residents from other locales are typically en-US keen to find out what they need to know, en-US particularly if they have become complacent en-US or dont think that the Treasure Coast will en-US see a storm. Last years near-miss with Huren-US -en-US ricane Matthew was a mild wake-up call for en-US many, and one other item that will be disen-US -en-US cusses is storm cleanup after last years diffien-US -en-US culties.en-US Its not a matter of if, but a matter of en-US when and how bad? Ms. Daigle said. So en-US our goal with the Hurricane Expo is to make en-US sure residents are prepared. If we have en-US something like a Hurricane Andrew come en-US through, you can prepare as much as you en-US want, but were still going to have to go en-US through recovery together.en-US This year, another presentation will en-US involve the emergency management divien-US -en-US sion partner with Waste Pro the citys solid en-US waste company and discuss debris removen-US-en-US al, which the Expo has never featured en-US before. The city had a massive amount of en-US vegetative debris following Hurricane Maten-US -en-US thew and residents contacted the city daily en-US to get updates on when their streets would en-US be cleared.en-US For more information, visit en-US www.en-US cityofen-US -en-US readies residents By Gaylon en-USTyler Thomas, en-US 6, of Fort en-US pierce, caught en-US this 26-inch, en-US 7-pound Flounen-US -en-US der near the en-US Fort Pierce en-US Inlet. en-USHelp us celebrate one of the Treasure Coasts most popular pastimes by submitting a en-US photo of your most recent catch straight from local waters.en-US Email a photo of you with your fish that is at least 1 MB or 300 dpi in size en-US to en-US Write CATCH OF THE WEEK in the subject line, and in the body of the email, en-US please include the following information:en-US Your nameen-US City you live inen-US Age (if 18 or younger)en-US Type of fishen-US Approximate size of fishen-US Area you caught the fishen-US Phone number in case we have questions (will not be printed)en-USNice Catch!


en-US 15 Answers Located in the Classied Section if not all of South Florida. en-USWe are doing things step-by-step and its en-US picking up all the time; we are happy about en-US that, Mrs. DiPiazza said. We came here en-US from Sicily on vacation and my husband and en-US I fell in love with Florida. So we have Sicien-US -en-US ly and New York and thats a good combinaen-US-en-US tion.en-US The authenticity started off right away, en-US with garlic knots that should be called garlic en-US buns because of their size. The dough was en-US fluffy and light and the butter and garlic en-US were as natural as if they were fresh off the en-US farm. From there, the appetizers mozzarelen-US -en-US la sticks and bruschetta were homemade en-US and it was noticeable from the moment that en-US they hit the taste buds that there was no box en-US involved with their crafting. The tomatoes en-US were right-off-the-vine and the breading on en-US the sticks was more flavorful than anywhere en-US else.en-US The first main dish has an interesting back en-US story, because the penne alla vodka is actualen-US -en-US ly made with a specially-seasoned vodka. en-US That vodka sits for one week before use as it en-US is soaking in crushed red peppers that are en-US sprinkled inside to give it just the right en-US amount of kick. The spiciness is mild and en-US not overwhelming and Mr. DiPiazza cooked en-US the pasta perfectly. Top that off with some en-US freshly-ground Parmesan cheese and you get en-US a thrill for the taste buds like no other.en-US If the vodka is white, I dont use it; but en-US once it starts to get red and changes the color en-US with the crushed pepper its ready to be en-US used, Mr. DiPiazza said. en-US The pizza was stacked full of both garden en-US vegetables on one side and tons of meat on en-US the other. The flavors and freshness of the en-US meat were outstanding and the garden vegeen-US -en-US tables again were straight-out-of-the-en-US garden and the crust was crisp and light. en-US Heres guessing the pizza also is lighter on en-US the waistline, too, because it was sauced peren-US -en-US fectly and the cheese was there to provide en-US flavor and not overwhelm the taste satisfacen-US -en-US tion. Although, regardless of the pie, Gio-en-US Joes cooks every pizza to customer specifien-US -en-US cations and is more than happy to please all en-US pizza-lovers desires.en-US Whats more, all of the dough for all of the en-US dishes at Gio-Joes is made fresh in the en-US morning and doesnt come from a bulk outen-US-en-US let. Mr. DiPiazza and Mr. Lofrano get in en-US bright and early to make it as opposed to en-US ordering it and that quality sets off the taste en-US of every item.en-US The chicken marsala was hard to believe, en-US because the breast was so tender that it could en-US be cut and eaten with a spoon and the maren-US -en-US sala sauce complimented the meat in an en-US amazing fashion. It was topped with fresh en-US mushrooms that didnt last long on the plate en-US and set off the dish marvelously from start to en-US finish.en-US What Italian meal would be complete en-US without dessert, and that provided the peren-US -en-US fect way to end the experience. The zeppoles en-US were finely dusted with powdered sugar and en-US were so piping hot that the sweetness of the en-US dough jumped onto the taste buds. It will be en-US a long time until any customer finds a Tiraen-US -en-US misu that has near the quality and craftsen-US -en-US manship and a more perfect glaze of chocoen-US -en-US late and it would go incredibly with coffee if en-US the customer is so-inclined. Meanwhile, the en-US cannolis are ordered fresh from Mr. Lofraen-US -en-US nos connections in New York, but Mr. DiPien-US -en-US azza makes the cream from scratch and it en-US was easy to tell because of its perfect consisen-US -en-US tency and sweetness.en-US There also is a beer and wine menu for en-US people who want a dinner drink, and the en-US restaurant is centrally located at 8900 S. US en-US Hwy 1 in Port St. Lucie at the intersection en-US with Village Green Drive and easy to find. It en-US would be wise to give them a try.en-US People keep calling us G.I. Joes and en-US were fine with that, Mr. Lofrano said with a en-US laugh. Everything is getting better and beten-US -en-US ter and we like to see the customers are really en-US happy with the food and we have great cusen-US -en-US tomers here and we like the community. en-US We make a good team.en-US For more information, visit them on Faceen-US -en-US book or call 772-877-2176.en-USPizzeriaen-USFrom page 11 en-USthird Friday of the month from 5-9:30 p.m. en-US Catch us as we invade Tradition in Port St en-US Lucie.
