So, the St. en-US Lucie County Property Appraisers en-US Office is getting the word out that when en-US the new TRIM or Truth in Millage en-US Reports are issued this month that its en-US important that homeowners know they en-US have a limited amount of time to disen-US -en-US pute their propertys assessed values en-US before the payments are due and other en-US problems develop.en-US According to the letter that will be en-US sent to homeowners within days, the en-US TRIM Report, reflects the official en-US Notice of Proposed Property Taxes. en-US Required by Florida law, the Property en-US Appraiser mails this notice mid-Auen-US-en-US gust, annually, to the owner on record en-US for every property in Saint Lucie Counen-US-en-US ty. Though this notice is not a bill, it is en-US very important. It is an estimate of your en-US property taxes based on the proposed en-US millage (tax) rates, your property value en-US as ofJan. 1of that year and any applicaen-US -en-US ble exemptions for which you are qualien-US-en-US fied.en-US TheTRIMnotice provides informaen-US-en-US tion on the proposed millage rates and en-US estimated taxes for each individual en-US Saint Lucie County taxing authority en-US including: The County Commission, en-US School Board, the Municipalities, and en-US other taxing districts.

Part of the motivation is the en-US fact that August is National Black Busien-US-en-US ness Month, but the main thrust is to en-US offer potential minority business owners en-US a chance to learn about valuable resourcen-US -en-US es that can help start and grow any new en-US venture. en-US The City of Fort Pierce has partnered en-US in the two-day event, and will have on en-US hand an assortment of local and regionen-US -en-US al artists and many area minority busien-US -en-US nesses have joined in to display their en-US goods and services.

Stop in Today! en-USPORT ST LUCIE A new organization en-US is helping to fight bullying at the same time en-US as helping youths roll into their birthdays. en-US The new group is called the Cherab Founen-US-en-US dation, and they are working with another en-US organization called crowdFunnit to lend a en-US hand to Tricia Morales in her efforts to en-US strike out alienation and bullying, particen-US -en-US ularly for children with special needs. en-US Ms. Morales and the organization are en-US hosting a bowling birthday party and comen-US-en-US munity celebration for her son, William, en-US on Sunday, Aug. 20 from 1 to 3 p.m. at en-US SuperPlayUSA with support from Duffys en-US Sports Grill, at 1600 N.W. Courtyard Ciren-US -en-US cle in Port St Lucie. They have invited peoen-US -en-US ple at no admission to attend the party and en-US discounted party passes will be available to en-US all children that attend for $10 usually en-US $18 from SuperPlayUSA that include en-US two hours of bowling, shoe rental, equipen-US -en-US ment use, party food from Duffys, pizza en-US and drinks, an arcade swipe card and en-US birthday cake from Magnolia Cakes & en-US Confections as part of the deal.en-US We do outreach for individuals with en-US communication impairment and a very en-US common one would be autism, said Lisa en-US Geng, president of the Cherab Foundation. en-US I dont know the family personal, but en-US through the non-profit Ive noticed there is en-US an underlying number of parents who en-US have special-needs children who have en-US expressed anxiety and people come for en-US support because theyre upset that their en-US children are never invited to a birthday en-US party or they have a birthday party and no en-US one shows up or that their child is being en-US bullied. en-US The initial idea was to help celebrate en-US Williams birthday with the initiative of the en-US nonprofit Cherab Foundation, which is en-US dedicated to improving the lives of those en-US who are bullied and alienated, fostering en-US acceptance, compassion and friendship en-US through open-invite birthday parties.en-US William, who has autism, will be turnen-US -en-US ing 13 years old. Not only is William en-US friendless, but he is bullied, according to a en-US press release.en-US The young mans mother perceived that en-US he seemingly had no friends and is rouen-US -en-US tinely mistreated by his peers, according to en-US his family. William would like to be a en-US member of the military someday, and so en-US the Navy Seal Museum in Fort Pierce has en-US invited them to visit for free that day of the en-US party. en-US The PSL Police Athletic League program en-US and ACEing Autism, are also partnering in en-US the celebration and people are encouraged en-US to bring mail for William to open, because en-US that is one of his great joys. If interested, en-US people can mail birthday cards to William en-US at Williams Birthday C/o Officer Richard en-US Wilson Port St Lucie Police Athletic en-US League (PAL) 2101 SE Tiffany Ave Port St en-US Lucie, FL 34952.en-US I started this idea with one parent in en-US the group, and we made a Facebook page en-US to get people to show up at a park and it en-US went viral, Ms. Geng said. It was all over en-US the news, even internationally, and from en-US there I decided that we needed to do someen-US -en-US thing a little bit more controlled so we en-US went and got first-responders in there also. en-US I didnt think it was fair for one child to get en-US thousands of dollars, and its really not en-US about the money.en-US Its about a child having a birthday en-US party and people showing that they care en-US and are compassionate. So now we set the en-US goal for $275 for each party and we already en-US hit that goal with Williams party.en-US For more information, visit www.crowden-US -en-US funnit.org/william-morales-13th-birthen-US -en-US day-party-invitation/ or www.gofundme.en-US com/william-morales-birthday-party or en-US find the event on Facebook.en-USCommunity asked to help child celebrateen-USWilliam Morales will soon en-US turn 13 and with the help en-US of the community, this en-US celebration will be one to en-US rememberBy Gaylon Parkergparker@hometownnewsol.com en-USWilliam Morales

The en-US main reason is that a lot of people are doing en-US their buying online.en-US There are a number of reasons for buying en-US online, most of them valid.en-US However, when a person is retired and in en-US good health and says that they do not have en-US time to go shopping, this blows my mind.en-US When you buy an article of clothing, dont en-US you want to feel the material and see how it en-US fits?en-US I realize that when you buy something en-US online, you can always return it. You might en-US have to do this numerous times to get it peren-US -en-US fect.en-US If that is supposed to be easier than going en-US to a store and trying on different outfits and en-US buying on the spot? It is not.en-USRepair business true en-US and honesten-USI know I am not alone, but I find it hard to en-US understand why it is so hard to find a busien-US -en-US ness needed for repairs that you can trust en-US and rely on them to do the job right and en-US honest.en-US I have spoken to others who are feeling en-US the same way that work is done but either en-US partially or incorrectly requiring the work en-US to be needed again. I remember years ago en-US never having problems, and businesses were en-US like family trustworthy.en-US What happened?en-USVeterans are veteransen-USI went into the service when I was 17 en-US years old. I am what they call a Cold War en-US vet. I gave five years of my life for my counen-US -en-US try, but most other vets and especially the en-US VA consider us lower than you-know-what.en-US Its not my fault we werent at war at the en-US time, even though we trained for it. I dont en-US even get veterans preference for jobs or anyen-US -en-US thing. Sad,actually.en-US Would I do it all over again? Of course.en-US FYI I wasnt a soldier, just a Seabee.en-USYour safety lights might be en-US defectiveen-US From my observations on Floridas streets en-US and highways, I have come to a conclusion en-US that the vast majority of cars and some en-US trucks, both new and old, seem to have a en-US common defect which appears almost en-US immediately after delivery.en-US Im sure the vehicles are OK when puren-US -en-US chased. Florida statutes (laws), I believe, en-US require all safety-related items must be in en-US working order. But after delivery, for whaten-US -en-US ever reason, the directional lights stop en-US working.en-US I think the probable cause might be someen-US -en-US where in the area of the steering wheel, or en-US more specifically the nut holding it. Maybe a en-US recall of this nut would be in order.en-USLets put license plates on the en-US adult bicycles on our streetsen-USI pay for auto tags every year because that en-US is the law to ride on our roads in Florida, en-US like in every other state. They have to pay en-US for the tags to pay for the roads. Thats what en-US pays for the roads; that is what maintains en-US the roads.en-US The biking people think that they can en-US hog our roads, and use them as they please en-US without paying any kind of money to use en-US our roads, and I think that every person en-US who rides these bikes racing down our roads en-US with their skin-tight pants, with their helen-US -en-US mets on and do it all the time; I think they en-US should be made to pay for little license plates en-US to put on their bicycles so they could pay for en-US the use of the road, too.en-US Right now, they are getting it for free, and en-US that is not right. The even have their own en-US bike lanes now, and they still dont pay for it.en-US So, I think that anyone who has one of en-US these bikes and wants to use these bikes on en-US our streets should be required to have tags en-US on them. And make them pay at least $30 or en-US $40, like our tags are for the cars.en-USAct like trash, pick up trashen-USRecently, several articles were written en-US ranting about litter problems. We have en-US many people committing criminal acts en-US within our community. These people rob us, en-US harm us, commit property damage, take en-US advantage of us and give our community a en-US bad name. I think its time to pay it back. en-US The misdemeanor offenders get litter projen-US-en-US ects along with jail time. They wear a fluoen-US-en-US rescent T-shirt that states I Love My Comen-US -en-US munity and Im Paying Back. Everyone will en-US see them and this if not a lesson learned for en-US them; at least it will benefit us. The message en-US it speaks is Act like trash then pick up en-US trash. I would much rather see our tax dolen-US-en-US lars pay for supervision of a program like en-US this that truly benefits us as a whole. en-USDrivers be carefulen-USPlease, please, please drivers, do not take en-US your eyes off the road while you drive. en-US With everyone in such a hurry or full of en-US stress lately, it only takes a split second for en-US you to accidentally run a light or sign, or en-US someone else not seeing you coming en-USbecause they reached over to tune the radio en-US or something, and your whole day and posen-US -en-US sibly your world can change in a moment en-US with an accident. en-US This happened to me recently and en-US although I was not hurt, my car is now in en-US the shop getting fixed, and all it took was a en-US quick, momentary distraction, Then, I had a en-US big dent in the door.

It says, Not a Bill on the envelope, en-US and so people sometimes procrastinate en-US instead of actively addressing its contents.en-US The challenge for us is that if they disen-US-en-US agree with their value or with what exempen-US -en-US tions or lack thereof on the property, en-US theres a window for them to seek a formal en-US appeal and that is 25 days from the date that en-US we mail the notice, Ms. Franklin said. If en-US somebody thinks its OK and set it on the en-US desk and after the 25 days have passed they en-US disagree, they have lost the ability to go en-US through the formal process.en-US The county has tried its best to spread the en-USword about the importance of the reports en-US and offer residents as much guidance as en-US possible so they know what to do in the en-US event of a valuation they oppose. She en-US recounted a story about one property owner en-US who was not able to afford the new valuaen-US-en-US tion and there was nothing she could do to en-US help because the deadline had passed.en-US I have been in the office for 13 years en-US prior to being elected and every year I end en-US up talking to a property owner who has not en-US realized that they made a change to their en-US deed and it ends up going through this en-US process and they lose their exemption, Ms. en-US Franklin said. They dont realize this until en-US the tax bill comes in November, because en-US maybe its being paid out of their mortgage en-US and you end up many months later before en-US they realize that their mortgage went up en-US and they dont have their exemption.en-US Its difficult to sit across the desk and tell en-US them Im sorry, and I have no way to fix it en-US for you now.en-US For more information about the TRIM en-US Reports, visit the website at en-US www.paslcen-US.org en-US or call 772-462-1000.en-USTrimen-USFrom page 1 en-USThere are so many ways we can lose our en-US focus with driving: texting, phone conversaen-US -en-US tions, tuning radios, reaching on the floor en-US for something, putting makeup on, even en-US eating. en-US Be careful out there, everyone and keep en-US your eyes on the road and hands on the en-US wheel for your own protection.

en-US 8 en-USPORT ST LUCIE Education is becomen-US -en-US ing more specialized each year, even on the en-US elementary-school level. With that in mind, en-US new principal Terry Davis was eager to join en-US Village Green Environmental Studies en-US School this summer. The school offers a en-US diverse education opportunity for young en-US people who want to become anything from en-US marine biologists to scientists of all stripes, en-US or work in the environmental industry.en-US Theres an adage in education and its en-US very true but its that, From grades K to 2, en-US you learn to read; but in grades three on, en-US you read to learn, Mr. Davis said. So, we in en-US the elemenen-US-en-US tary schools en-US really lay the en-US foundation en-US for all future en-US success in en-US school. Its a en-US critically en-US important for en-US those stuen-US-en-US dents to learn en-US those fundaen-US-en-US mental skills, en-US academically, en-US and also the en-US social skills that are going to help them be en-US successful at the next two levels (of educaen-US -en-US tion).en-US The curriculum is focused on these segen-US -en-US ments of study, but simultaneously offer the en-US standard reading, writing and arithmetic en-US requirements. The staff and teachers weave en-US the curriculum together to combine the en-US educational opportunities with environen-US-en-US mental awareness and expand the students en-US horizons further than the classroom setting.en-US Mr. Davis has been in public education en-US for 30 years, and moves over to the school en-US from previous jobs in Pahokee for nine en-US years, and opened Royal Palm Beach High en-US School as an assistant principal before moven-US -en-US ing to the St. Lucie County area to be assisen-US-en-US tant principal at Centennial High School for en-US four years and Fort Pierce Central High en-US School for two years.en-US I became principal of Port St. Lucie High en-US School and did that for five years and was a en-US district administrator for one year and then en-US became principal of Forest Grove Middle en-US School for six years, Mr. Davis said. So, en-US this is my 30th year and first year in elemenen-US-en-US tary education.en-US His experience at the higher levels of eduen-US -en-US cation, he said, will be a blessing because he en-US has seen many students be successful later en-US in life based on what he knows about their en-US application to elementary education from en-US the start.en-US Im hoping to be part of the solution for en-US middle and high schools, academically and en-US behaviorally, because those are the two big en-US components of what helps create successful en-US students and successful citizens are those en-US fundamental socialization and academic en-US skills and the foundation starts when the en-US kids walk into Kindergarten, he said.en-US The prospect is a promising one for Mr. en-US Davis, he said, because he had worked at en-US every grade level but elementary education en-US during his career. The job at Village Green is en-US one he is eagerly anticipating because of the en-US specialization associated with it and the en-US chance to identify an environmental theme en-US for each grade level.en-US So, each grade level will focus on one en-US environmental aspect and then when they en-US do readings in non-fiction and fiction texts, en-US and those kinds of things, and bring in real-en-US world math problems the teachers will work en-US to bring that literature and focus to those en-US studies, Mr. Davis said. Its so the students en-US are learning the content skills, but theyre en-US also learning about that aspect of the envien-US-en-US ronment all year.en-US He added that the environmental compoen-US-en-US nent dovetails well with his lifestyle.en-US Im kind of an environmental guy, too, en-US and I ride my bike to work when I can and I en-US go backpacking and do outdoorsy things en-US and canoeing and kayaking, so its a really en-US good fit for me with that focus, Mr. Davis en-US said. en-US He credits the staff he has interacted with en-US so far with being high-quality and the high en-US level of testing standards the school has en-US achieved in past years. We have some truly en-US fantastic people here, and I am really excited en-US and look forward to having the chance to en-US work with them, he said.en-US For more information about St. Lucie en-US County School, please visit en-USwww.stlucie.k12.en-US fl.us/ en-US or call 772-429-3600. en-US For more information about the school, en-US please visit en-USwww.stlucie.k12.fl.us/our-en-US schools/profile/?sch=vge.

en-US 9 Just for Kids Back To School2017-2018 Mon.-Fri. 9:30am-5:00pm New Arrivals Seiko Watches ST LUCIE COUNTY E. Wayne Gent en-UShas been St. Lucie County Schools Superinen-US -en-US tendent for the past two years, and has seen en-US an upward momentum that he is trying to en-US continue in 2017-18. The progress has been en-US solid, he said, and the district is headed in en-US the right direction.en-US I think one of the things I focused on en-US when I first came was the culture of individen-US -en-US ual schools and for us to take an honest look en-US at that and make sure that they are inviting en-US places not only for the students, but for en-US our employees as well, Mr. Gent said. The en-US culture is how we do things around here and en-US the climate is how it feels.en-US New standards from the state have been a en-US major focus, too, and the district is trying to en-US utilize and monitor data more in its evaluaen-US -en-US tion of the application of those standards. en-US Administrators also were trying to build on en-US the success that existed before Gents arrival en-US and extend that further by knowing what to en-US keep an eye on as the years progress.en-US I listen to our employees a lot to learn en-US what we are doing well, what we need to en-US stop doing and improve on and I think all of en-US that is a factor, Mr. Gent said. I think the en-US focus on technology is important and theres en-US a lot of data to be looked at. Weve trained en-US our principals and administrators on how to en-US use it. Our teachers have embraced that as en-US well.en-US This past year, the district had no failing en-US schools and had six with the most improveen-US-en-US ment among state schools. The most en-US important thing to consider, he said, was en-US how to build on that success and the needs en-US of the students and teachers. He added that en-US staffing the right people on leadership is en-US important, particularly because the district en-US has seven new principals at various grade en-US levels.en-US Youre going to win with the right peoen-US -en-US ple, and the role of a principal or departen-US -en-US ment head is knowing how to develop the en-US talent, Mr. Gent said. When folks get in, en-US we work with them and we help them build en-US their own capacity and I expect my leaders en-US and myself to continuously grow as well in en-US our leadership positions. Growth doesnt en-US just happen, we have to work on it and I try en-US to emphasize that with everyone.en-US The district also has reached agreements en-US on wages for the past six years before the en-US start of the school year with teachers and en-US other staff, so that creates a better relationen-US-en-US ship with the various bargaining groups. I en-US think thats a testament to our five school en-US board members, who do an excellent job en-US and theyre veterans and theyre interested en-US in our teachers and their main interest is en-US our main interest: We care about our team, en-US he said. en-US Getting children en-US off to a good start in en-US the elementary en-US school environment en-US also has continued to en-US be a primary focus en-US and he said the rigor en-US of the elementary en-US school level has en-US grown significantly en-US over the years. In en-US some cases, he added, en-US teachers have had to en-US relearn the craft and en-USupgrade what they were accustomed to in en-US past years. The increase in expectations at en-US the elementary level has meant that teachers en-US still have to make it fun, but the challenge is en-US to blend it together in a good learning expeen-US -en-US rience for young people.en-US Our teachers are really doing a great job en-US of that, Mr. Gent said. Its the key that en-US there is a solid foundation for the students, en-US really upon entering Kindergarten, and if en-US students have been in Pre-K before that, its en-US certainly an asset, but common sense will en-US tell us that if we have a strong foundation at en-US the earliest years then well be in good shape en-US later on. Not only in the schools, but in the en-US community and the country as well.en-US For more information, please visit en-US www.en-US stlucie.k12.fl.us/en-US or call 772-429-3600.en-USGent anticipates continued progress at schoolsBy Gaylon Parkergparker@hometownnewsol.com en-USE.

It's time for back to school en-USThe 10th Annual Back To School en-US Expo was held at Havert L. Fenn en-US Center in Fort Pierce on Saturday, en-US August 5. Parents were offered en-US one stop access to valuable family en-US resources and services including en-US health, vision, and dental screenen-US -en-US ings, school physical appointen-US -en-US ments, safety information, budgeten-US -en-US ing, nutrition, community resource en-US information and book bags and en-US school supplies.en-US Above: Six-year-old en-US Omar Cervantes gives en-US his fingerprints to St. en-US Lucie Sheriffs Deputy en-US Meagan Loupe. en-USDo you really need all of those automatic updates?en-USIen-USf there is one computer issue I can name en-US that annoys both Windows users and en-US Mac users alike it would have to be en-US automatic updates. en-US If youve used a computer for any length en-US of time youve experienced it annoying en-US messages that pop up telling you that one en-US program or another needs to update and en-US usually the message is worded in such a way en-US as to make you believe that if you ignore the en-US message horrible things will happen. One of en-US the worst offenders has got to be Adobe en-US with their Flash and Adobe Reader en-US update messages popping up on an almost en-US daily basis. en-US What gives? Why is it that you can hardly en-US make it through a day without some en-US program interrupting your workflow en-US nagging you about an update and insisting en-US that you need it? Does ignoring update en-US messages lead down the path of doom or en-US are these constant messages just noise that en-US can safely be ignored? en-US Well, I have some theories that should en-US answer these questions. en-US First, I like to categorize updates into two en-US slots the first being important updates en-US that are dangerous to ignore and the en-US second slot for updates that are trivial and en-US safe to ignore (until actually needed). en-US Lets talk about the first category; why en-US ignoring them can lead down the road to en-US peril and what you should do about them. I en-US categorize things like operating system en-US updates and antivirus updates as important en-US dont ignore. When you see a message en-US telling you that Windows has x amount of en-US updates available or (if you are running a en-US Mac) important operating system updates en-US are available, set aside some time to apply en-US these updates because the operating system en-US is the one central part of the computer that en-US governs everything. en-US Quite often these updates are patches en-US that correct known bugs and often plug en-US security holes that viruses and malware can en-US take advantage of to infect your system. en-US Ignoring these operating system updates en-US can leave you vulnerable to malware or en-US other problems that the updates just may en-US fix. And the fact of the matter is, if your en-US computer is up and running, you are using en-US the operating system so its not like its an en-US update for a program you never use. en-US Antivirus updates are in the same en-US category they are important and ignoring en-US them can leave your system open to attack en-US from viruses that you may encounter as you en-US surf the net. Think of it this way every en-US day new viruses are released into the wild en-US and it takes the antivirus companies a while en-US to come up with a definition for these new en-US threats. Its these definitions that en-US are included in the antivirus en-US updates and applying these en-US updates is the only way your en-US antivirus program can recognize en-US (and block!) new threats as you en-US encounter them online. Sure en-US were all vulnerable to the new en-US threats that havent been defined en-US yet but ignoring the antivirus en-US updates leaves you vulnerable to en-US threats that have already been en-US discovered. If your antivirus en-US software doesnt update itself en-US automatically, ignoring the en-US update messages is just asking en-US for an infection. en-US OK, so weve covered the first category, en-US lets talk about the second; updates that are en-US safe to ignore. As I mentioned, I have a en-US theory about this. en-US On every computer there are hundreds of en-US programs installed. Some programs are en-US used daily and some hardly ever get used at en-US all but all programs have one thing in en-US common they are all written by people en-US and most of them are working 9 to 5 at their en-US programming job. When they write a en-US program and then distribute their program en-US to the masses its not over for them. If it en-US were, they would have to look for a new job en-US every time they finished a program. No, en-US what happens is after they release a en-US program when they show up for work the en-US next day they have to do something to en-US justify their salaries so what do they do? en-US They keep working on the program that en-US theyve already released and push these en-US adjustments out as updates. en-US Now again, this is just a theory but its en-US served me well over the years. Keeping that en-US in mind, I adopt the attitude of if its not en-US broke, dont fix it and ignore the cacophoen-US -en-US ny of update messages that all the other en-US programs on my machine make and only en-US apply non operating system or non en-US antivirus updates when Im having en-US problems with that particular program. Its en-US a philosophy that has yet to let me down. en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers.
