en-US 3 en-USST LUCIE COUNTY When people en-US think of golf carts they think often of riding en-US up to the green and preparing for their next en-US shot. But when customers walk into Eagle en-US Custom Golf Carts in Port St. Lucie, they en-US should prepare to think of them in a whole, en-US stylish, new way.en-US If the mind can imagine it, owner Richard en-US Lucera can most likely provide it, and the en-US company offers brand of golf carts that are en-US top-of-the-line in looks and quality inside en-US and out. In fact, Mr. Luceras customers en-US come from a variety of places, be they campen-US-en-US grounds, fair grounds, schools and universien-US -en-US ties, security companies, condo associations en-US and businesses and even maintenance comen-US-en-US panies can find what they are seeking.en-US Most of our carts come from a manufacen-US -en-US turer in California, directly to us with all en-US brand-new frames and new bodies and have en-US stereos with Bluetooth capacity, Mr. Lucera en-US said. They can be customized to several en-US different models that you can get and we en-US have several in the showroom.en-US The company has been around for about en-US six months now, and during that time they en-US have showcased some of the most eye-catchen-US -en-US ing products available in what is becoming a en-US more popular commodity for people in en-US small or gated communities. When one conen-US -en-US siders the consistently high price of gas, en-US there is no better way to cut into that expenen-US -en-US diture than by having a different form of en-US transportation for those short trips.en-US And different is what you get from Eagle.en-US I just sold one to a gentleman in The Vilen-US-en-US lages, and he bought a Hummer and spent en-US over $20,000 on it, so its not your every-day en-US golf cart here, Mr. Lucera said with a laugh. en-US One short trip to the store which will en-US open soon will subsequently mean that en-US those short trips around the community are en-US done with more ease and less effort. The en-US home page of the website features some of en-US the most amazing custom products, from en-US roadsters to golf carts that resemble Rolls en-US Royce automobiles. There are ones that look en-US like old Model-T cars and others that are en-US specifically designed with lift packages for en-US people who live in the country, and others en-US that seat as many as six people and are peren-US en-USfect for socializing and fun.en-US These carts take the experience a couple en-US steps above anything youve seen, and you en-US see them running around in gated commuen-US -en-US nities and in neighborhoods, Mr. Lucera en-US said, adding that people who live in the Keys en-US also seek them out and they are very popuen-US -en-US lar there. en-US Eagle Custom Golf Carts is a family en-US owned and operated business.With years in en-US the electrical business, Mr. Lucera values his en-US relationships with customers, and whether en-US customers are looking for a simple golf cart en-US modification or a fancy custom cart, the en-US company welcomes the opportunity to meet en-US any golf cart need.en-US The fact is, I retired and got bored and I en-US always need something to do, Mr. Lucera en-US said. I found it interesting when I started en-US looking into golf carts and found these ones en-US here, and they were totally different. I found en-US a manufacturer that I liked and got a franen-US-en-US chise with them.en-US For more information about Eagle Cusen-US -en-US tom Golf Carts, please visit the website at en-US www.eaglecustomgolfcarts.comen-US/en-US or call the en-US office at 609-839-1480.

I then proceeded to cash out en-US (including fines) my 401k in attempt to en-US maintain health insurance for my family en-US through Cobra. It didnt take long for the en-US savings or the health insurance to run out. I en-US am now in process of obtaining disability en-US but that will not bring health insurance. I en-US had to take early social security. Our total en-US combined income now is $54,000. It used to en-US be almost twice that..... I heard a Louisiana en-US senator say people in his state earning less en-US than $25,000 are paying fines for not having en-US healthcare. This confused me. I imagine it en-US may vary from state to state but THERE IS en-US an EXEMPTION from healthcare because en-US we have earned income but cannot afford en-US health insurance.

We have more than a few hundreds en-US of thousands of roads in North America. en-US Can't at least some of them be white? Can en-US they at least make parking lots white to en-US reflect the sun's rays, and this would cool off en-US the Earth considerably.en-US I thought of who gains the most with a en-US warmer world, and bingo it is the electricien-US -en-US ty company. Think, if we lived in a not such en-US hot world, there would be less air conditionen-US -en-US ing use. I know the electricity company is en-US one of the world's largest entities that keep en-US the status quo.en-US Yes, I know if Earth was not lit up like a en-US Christmas tree every night, crime would en-US soar exponentially.

Two returning students en-US from last years inaugural team will serve as en-US mentors for the nine other Student Perks team en-US members.

It is that 98 acres that are en-US closest to the proposed airport connector, en-US which is a priority project of St. Lucie Counen-US -en-US ty, the city of Fort Pierce and the city of Port en-US St. Lucie. If that area is placed under perpeten-US -en-US ual conservation -if you take that much en-US land area out of possible development -en-US that will impact the feasibility of the airport en-US connector.en-US Board member Craig Mundt expressed en-US frustration about having to delay the project en-US even further, especially when Board Chairen-US -en-US man William ODeil said the Dec. 21 meeten-US -en-US ing might not take place. en-US Why is the tree mitigation coming up en-US now since this application has been here for en-US months, he asked. I dont want to force en-US FP&L to a date they dont want, but then en-US again, the mitigation thing is something we en-US should have caught earlier.en-US One of the staff members who attended en-US the recent Transportation Planning Organien-US -en-US zation meeting explained that the issue also en-US took that board by surprise. en-US That recently came before the Transporen-US -en-US tation Planning Organization and it was not en-US on the radar screen, he said. While its en-US been on the Comprehensive Plan forever en-US and a day, that issue just recently came en-US before the TPO. Thats why it was brought to en-US your attention and thats why staff wasnt en-US aware of it until it came up at the TPO.en-US Board member Kara Wood wanted clarien-US -en-US fication whether the rescheduled hearing en-US would automatically be postponed to Januen-US-en-US ary if for some reason the P&Z Commission en-US decided not to meet in December. en-US Im confused a little bit procedurally, en-US she said. We dont know if we are or not en-US having a meeting in December so are we en-US continuing this until December and if we en-US dont have the meeting, will it automatically en-US be continued?en-US Ms. Olson, however, insisted the Board en-US set a specific date for the next hearing.en-US It was our understanding from the Board en-US that you had decided to not have a Decemen-US -en-US ber meeting, so we were not planning on en-US scheduling anything for December, she en-US explained. It is at the Boards discretion to en-US decide whether to hold the regular meeting en-US in December on the 21st. A different date in en-US December is also a possibility or even possien-US -en-US bly an earlier date in January. But if we do en-US not continue it to a date certain, it will have en-US to be re-advertised, so I would recommend en-US that we find a date tonight.en-US After Mr. Long told board members that en-US he would have a new tree mitigation plan in en-US place by the time of the December meeting, en-US the P&Z Commission voted 6-2 to rescheden-US-en-US ule the hearing until Dec. 21, with Commisen-US -en-US sioners Mundt and Edward Lounds dissenten-US -en-US ing. en-USLogjamen-USFrom page 1 en-USNotesen-USFrom page 2en-US Seeen-US en-US NOTESen-US, page 9

These majestic plants come en-US in a variety of colors including red, white, en-US pink, magenta, yellow and orange. These en-US plants are a popular commodity at most en-US retail outlets during the holidays and en-US usually will sell out fast. The individual en-US flowers can add a burst of color to your en-US dcor for a week or more while a single en-US plants blooming cycle can continue for a en-US month or more. en-US Christmas cacti or en-US Schlumbergera en-US russellianaen-US are not true cacti so they will not en-US tolerate totally dry conditions for long en-US periods of time. These plants are native to en-US Brazil and normally grow up in the trees en-US and thrive on organic materials such as en-US mold and rotting leaves. Since they enjoy en-US the shade of the tropical forest, they will not en-US tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These en-US plants can last for many years under the en-US right conditions and with a little TLC. en-US When the plants mature, the leaves tend to en-US form a cascading burst of color that looks en-US great in a hanging basket. You can also en-US easily propagate the plants by taking en-US cuttings and planting them directly in a en-US high quality potting soil that is light in en-US texture.en-US Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in en-US an indoor home atmosphere. They have a en-US great ability to withstand cool temperatures en-US and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it en-US is for these plants to grow, it will take a little en-US extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that en-US are their trademark. One important factor en-US in the flowering process is to start allowing en-US the soil to dry out between watering cycles en-US as winter approaches. It is also very en-US important to place the plants in an area that en-US will have less then 12 hours of natural or en-US artificial light for at least six1 weeks. Also, it en-US is important to keep the temperature cool en-US during this process. Once you have your en-US flowers started, you can resume your en-US normal watering schedule along with your en-US normal room temperatures.en-US As you can see, with a little TLC and en-US some special care, you can have beautiful en-US flowering Christmas cacti year after year en-US without the cost of having to replace your en-US plants every year.en-US If you buy Poinsettias for the holidays, en-US one of the most common pest problems en-US you might encounter is a little pest known en-US as a whitefly. If you shake the leaves of the en-US plant and you see little white specs flying en-US around the plant, your poinsettia is infested en-US with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very en-US hard to control but with this quick tip, you en-US can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can en-US use a handheld vacuum to get rid of these en-US pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant en-US (carefully) with one hand while you en-US vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweepen-US -en-US ing motion around the plant. This process en-US can also be used for other houseplants that en-US might acquire these pests.en-US Joe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.

OK, OK, its high in en-US protein and low in fat, a low-carb en-US dieters dream. It is inexpensive, a source of en-US iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium and en-US B-vitamins, too. en-US Turkey does have some strange powers, en-US though. It has the ability to be a natural en-US sedative. Turkey has an amino acid called en-US tryptophan that helps the body produce the en-US B-vitamin niacin, which in turn helps the en-US body to produce serotonin that acts as a en-US calming agent in the brain and plays a role en-US in sleep. Now you know why everyone falls en-US asleep after Thanksgiving dinners. en-US By the way, Abraham Lincoln made en-US Thanksgiving a federal holiday in 1864. en-US Turkey is a variety of the pheasant and en-US recent fossil evidence shows turkeys have en-US roamed the Americas for 10 million years. I en-US cant quite understand why dinosaurs didnt en-US make it, but turkeys did. en-US The Aztecs are believed to be the first en-US culture to domesticate the turkey. Christoen-US -en-US pher Columbus brought turkeys back to en-US Europe and, by the 1500s, turkeys were en-US being raised domestically in Italy, France en-US and England for royalty and the aristocracy. en-US Turkey and all the trimmings was the en-US first meal eaten on the moon by Astronauts en-US Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.en-US Now that you know what all the fuss is en-US over turkeys, lets talk about the best part en-US eating turkey. Do you like it smoked, fried, en-US braised, baked, boiled or stewed? What is en-US best is really up to you, but here are a few en-US tips that might help: en-US Buy at least one pound of uncooked en-US turkey per person for dinner and leftovers. en-US If your family members have big appetites, en-US figure on one and one half pounds per en-US person.en-US Fresh or frozen? Both are great options en-US I prefer fresh. I think it is a little more moist en-US when cooked. Fresh turkey should only be en-US kept in the refrigerator one to two days en-US before cooking.en-US Frozen turkey should thaw in the en-US refrigerator:en-US 8 to 12 pounds 1 to 2 daysen-US 12 to 16 pounds 2 to 3 daysen-US 16 to 20 pounds 3 to 4 daysen-US 20 to 24 pounds 4 to 5 daysen-US Once the turkey is thawed, it may only en-US be refrigerated one to two days before cooken-US -en-US ing.en-US It is best to cook stuffing outside the en-US bird in a separate dish. The turkey will cook en-US faster and the breast will retain moisture en-US better. If you decide to stuff the turkey, stuff en-US it just prior to cooking. Stuffing should en-US cook to an internal temperature of 165 en-US degrees. en-US How much stuffing is enough? Usually en-US one cup per pound of turkey.en-US A thermometer is the best way to tell if en-US a turkey is cooked. The dark meat must en-US reach 165 degrees. Be careful not to touch en-US bone when checking as you will get an en-US inaccurate reading. When reheating turkey en-US the next day, it should be heated to 165 en-US degrees.en-US To store cooked turkey, it should be en-US place in a covered container, plastic food en-US bag, or wax paper and aluminum foil for up en-US to seven days in the refrigerator or three en-US months in the freezer.en-US Season the cavity with your secret en-US ingredients for best results. As for myself, I en-US love garlic.

It may en-US have something to do with the combinaen-US -en-US tion of food, football and family. en-US Over the past few years I have come to en-US take some alone time on Thanksgiving. I en-US look back at the year that has passed and en-US think about all the things I have to be en-US thankful for. I also take time to remember en-US the things that were lost over the past en-US year or two. Finally I think about family en-US and friends.en-US My greatest gift this year is my first en-US grandchild. My grandson, Enzo Karl en-US Stammer, was born on March 5th. I en-US thought it would make me feel old being en-US a grandfather. It doesnt. When I see him, en-US I realize how much he has to learn and en-US how he is just starting in this world. I en-US know he wont lack for love and affection.en-US The greatest loss for me was the passing en-US of an old friend from high school. Early en-US last year David Gemberling found out en-US that he had brain cancer. Despite a valiant en-US effort, and tons of love, prayers and en-US support from his family and friends, it en-US was too much for him to overcome. I will en-US be thankful when we finally find a cure en-US for this scourge that takes far too many, en-US far too early.en-US There was some good news though. My en-US ex father-in-law, who has battled cancer en-US more than once now, is still fighting. We en-US were concerned that he may not make it en-US to see his great-grandson. His will is en-US strong and he not only made it beyond en-US what doctors were saying, but he continen-US -en-US ues the fight. en-US One sweet golf memory from this year en-US was seeing Justin Roses gold medal from en-US the Olympics. They hadnt made one in en-US over a century and I got to see it from just en-US a few feet away. en-US I have found myself with a few regrets en-US as well. I dont play as often as I used to. en-US Since one of my very best friends passed en-US away three years ago now, our group en-US seems to be missing something. I should en-US play more often, especially with my best en-US friend. Life is too short and we need to en-US enjoy the time and friends we have.en-US I always love playing a new course for en-US the very first time. Something about en-US being one of the first to take on its en-US challenges gets my juices flowing. I had a en-US couple of those this year, and while I en-US didnt play very well, I made time to take en-US it all in. en-US We should all be thankful for the en-US volunteers who give so much more than en-US their time to make golf happen. Pretty en-US much every high school coach is a en-US volunteer. These people give up so much en-US to grow our game and get young people en-US to play to their potential. en-US Then there are those who volunteer to en-US help out or work at a charity tournament. en-US These people make it possible for the en-US charities to get as much money from the en-US event as possible. The next time you play en-US in one of these events, thank the volunen-US -en-US teers for their hard work. Many do it out en-US of love or a connection to the charity, but en-US it will brighten their day to know that en-US their work is appreciated by everyone.en-US A big thank you goes out to the PGA en-US Merchandise Show. Starting with the en-US annual Tour Edge Multi Manufacturer en-US Media Day, this week in January has en-US become as much about seeing old friends en-US and enjoying their company as it is about en-US the latest golf equipment. As I grow older, en-US I find it just as exciting to see my friends en-US here as it is to get the scoop on the newest en-US driver. en-US My biggest thanks is to all of you who en-US read my column, listen to my radio show en-US and even take the time to drop me an en-US email. One reader, while packing for a en-US move, read one of my articles from two en-US years ago and took the time to write me en-US an email and tell how much she liked it. en-US Being appreciated is a wonderful feeling.en-US Finally, I hope to pass along this en-US wonderful game to my grandson. Its a en-US game I hope he will use to learn many en-US lessons for life. I also hope and pray we en-US can play together until the day I pass. en-US That would make me most thankful.en-US Happy Thanksgiving everyone!en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.
