The opinions included are not those of Hometown News or its employees.en-USPlease limit your submissions to 250 words, so that we can include more entries. en-US Readers are asked to refrain from making slanderous or libelous statements. en-USWork for the disabled en-USI read an article about jobs for disabled. I en-US agree with this article. Vocational Rehabilien-US -en-US tation has a lot of resources and help to get en-US disable people back to work. And Employ U en-US works with them to help out, and that is en-US great. But the jobs in the area does not seem en-US to want to employ disabled workers. I wish en-US the employers would work with Vocational en-US Rehabilitation and Employment agents to en-US help people with disabilities that can work, en-US get work. The employment agencies and en-US rehabilitation are doing a great job but they en-US need a little more help getting people back en-US to work. This help will be a big help to all of en-US the people that are wanting to work again en-US and also the agencies that are working hard en-US to help people become employed again.en-USMedical care is not en-US what it used to be Upon leaving my specialist' s off ice recent en-US-en-US ly, I drove home approximately 15 miles en-US and had a lot to ponder over. The week en-US before I had my car serviced, and felt it en-US received more attention than I did by my en-US physician. Overbooking by medical staff en-US equals long waiting times; no problem, I en-US had my tablet, they had WiFi. en-US Being seen by a medical assistant, who en-US assumed that I knew the receptionist should en-US have downloaded my current meds (that en-US was the inference), no problem. You read en-US them to me, and I will yay or nay.en-US I was then seen by a PA-C who has no en-US bedside manner, no problem, she's never en-US been friendly and is the epitome of complaen-US -en-US cency. Why choose the field, when your en-US attitude is so poor? en-US My waiting time was approaching an en-US hour and still no doctor, no problem. en-US With my medical record on the computen-US -en-US er in plain sight and boredom setting in, I en-US took a gander. No mention of my succinct en-US description of my condition to date, just a en-US sentence of my personality as determined en-US by Miss Congeniality. In addition, the exam en-US from my first consult in 2017, including my en-US under weight status noted, all appeared as if en-US current. Of course, none of this was rectien-US -en-US fied. No it's assumed that Medicare will en-US pay for the higher level evaluation, despite en-US the inaccuracy. en-US I brought this to the doctor's attention en-US and I was simply blown off. I left with a en-US prescription written incorrectly, per the en-US pharmacy, along with a follow-up visit, not en-US with the doctor, despite my request. No it en-US was with the PA-C who has failed to estaben-US -en-US lish a patient following after 15 plus years en-US with the doctor. en-US I was seen by the medical assistant, his physician assistant, and minut es with the en-USspecialist (who also could be heard taking en-US personal phone calls on my time). All in all, en-US little to nothing was accomplished, I needed en-US and deserved more quality time than en-US received. Now we have a problem. en-USInternet should be a utilityen-USI have never had Cable TV because I get en-US everything I need from an antenna and by en-US renting DVDs. But the Internet has become en-US a necessity. Banking, taxes, airline tickets, en-US hotel reservations, and municipal billing en-US have all moved online. Even my doctors, en-US dentist, and other providers are now using en-US email to contact me. There is no way anyone en-US can get by without Internet service these en-US days.en-US So why is my Internet bill so expensive? It en-US is now twice as expensive as my water bill en-US and about the same as my electric bill. How en-US can that make any sense? en-US The Water Department has to obtain en-US water, filter it, treat it, and then pass it en-US through a maze of pipes to my house. The en-US Electric Company has to buy fuel, generate en-US electricity, and then pass it through their en-US wires to my house.en-US The cable company doesnt have to generen-US -en-US ate anything because all my Internet content en-US comes from my bank, or Google, or Faceen-US -en-US book, or Wikipedia, or Amazon, or the weben-US-en-US sites of various municipal services. All the en-US cable company has to do is pass my content en-US through their tiny wires to my house.en-US I use less than 10% of my GB allowance, en-US yet the cable company has no plan for us en-US seniors that are on limited income. I am en-US considering terminating my service and en-US going to the library for Internet. en-US I think the city should make Internet seren-US -en-US vice a utility. Its no longer a luxury only for en-US the people that can afford it. en-USRobo callsen-USThe best way to reduce robo calls is to en-US not answer. Screen your calls via answering en-US machine. Don't pick up the phone period. en-US It takes awhile, but they will reduce in freen-US -en-US quency. The Do Not Call registry is useless. en-US These annoying calls are here to stay. Being en-US unable to disconnect (the phone to avoid) en-US these calls in the event of having to call 911 en-US (means they) SHOULD BE OUTLAWED!en-USInspections were a hassleen-USFlorida had auto inspections for many en-US years. It was wildly unpopular. A study en-US showed that of the top 50 causes of auto en-US accidents, equipment problems, the kind of en-US things that are picked up during the annual en-US inspection, was number 49. It simply wasn't en-US cost effective.en-US Everybody loathed it. It was offered weeken-US -en-US days only, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., so you had to en-US take off work. Long lines of cars idling, waiten-US-en-US ing, sometimes for hours, constant exhaust en-US fumes and pollution. Hot days, hot cars, hot en-US tempers. The thousands of inspectors had to en-US be paid, out of our taxes. Commercial propen-US -en-US erty, the inspection stations, off the tax rolls.en-US Former Gov. Bob Martinez promised to en-US end auto inspections and was elected en-US because of this promise. Modern cars are en-US also far more durable than they were in the en-US 1950s, they simply don't need constant en-US inspections. If you really want to make our en-US roads safer, put down the cell phone and en-US drive.

This year marks the 21st en-US straight year that the PGA Village will host en-US this championship. In all, nearly 40 colleges en-US and universities will participate in the en-US Championship.en-US Thirty two-years ago, following the en-US Jackson State University Tournament in en-US 1986, Coach Eddie Payton of Jackson en-US (Miss.) State University joined with Dr. en-US John Saunder; the late Dr. Herschel en-US Cochrane, former president of the National en-US Negro Golf Association; Rose Elder, of the en-US Sports Management Institute of Washingen-US -en-US ton D.C.; and William (Bill) Dickey, en-US president of the National Minority Junior en-US Golf Association and the 1999 PGA en-US Distinguished Service Award winner, to en-US form the National Minority College Golf en-US Championship. en-US The first Championship was contested on en-US May 17-19, 1987, at the Highland Park Golf en-US Course in Cleveland. The Championship en-US was conceived to focus national attention en-US on the crisis of minority college golf, to en-US stimulate the development of golf programs en-US at the intercollegiate level and to create a en-US National Championship for Americas en-US finest minority college golfers.en-US In 2006, the PGA of America was en-US granted full operation and management of en-US the Championship and the name was en-US changed to the PGA Minority Collegiate en-US Championship.en-US This years Championship marks the en-US return of Loritz Scooter Clark, PGA, who en-US was recently named Manager of the event. en-US A prime example of the career opportunien-US -en-US ties available to participants in the event, en-US Clarks involvement dates back to 1987, en-US when he played in the inaugural Champien-US -en-US onship.en-US Clark has enjoyed tremendous success as en-US the Director of Intercollegiate Golf at en-US Bethune-Cookman University, where his en-US mens and womens teams collectively won en-US 10 PGA Minority Collegiate Championship en-US Division I titles, the most in the history of en-US the Championship. As the events manager, en-US Clark is focused on driving greater en-US engagement among colleges and universien-US -en-US ties nationwide while promoting diversity en-US and providing opportunities, both on and en-US off the course.en-US I am proud to return and en-US manage the PGA Minority en-US Collegiate Championship, en-US especially considering how en-US much this event has impacted en-US my career in golf, said Clark. en-US Each year this showcase gets en-US strongerespecially with the en-US quality of players participaten-US -en-US ing, and the involvement of en-US national corporations and organizations in en-US the career fair. These golf-industry en-US businesses provide unmatched networking en-US and career counseling to our outstanding en-US student-athletes.en-US The 54-hole stroke play competition will en-US be contested on The PGA Golf Clubs en-US Wannamaker and Ryder Courses and the en-US public is invited and encouraged to come en-US out to watch and cheer on these fine young en-US women and men in their quest to become en-US champions.en-US The five-person team competition is en-US open to universities and colleges that en-US provide education to a predominately en-US minority student body. Predominately en-US minority serving institutions that are en-US classified as Historically Black Colleges and en-US Universities, Traditional Black Colleges, en-US Traditional Hispanic Colleges and Univeren-US -en-US sities and Tribal Colleges are eligible to en-US participate. All defending Champions en-US receive an automatic entry. The individual en-US division is comprised of male and female en-US students who are African-American, en-US Hispanic-America, Native or Alaskan en-US American, or Asian or Pacific American. en-US Florida is well represented in the en-US Championship as Bethune-Cookman en-US College (Daytona) has seen its mens and en-US womens teams combine for 14 victories. en-US The women will be looking to defend their en-US title from last year and capture their fourth en-US straight championship. The men are also en-US hoping to defend and hoist the winning en-US trophy for the fifth time in the last six years.en-US Teams will be teeing off from 7:30 to 9:30 en-US am Friday through Sunday.

en-US 9 Sunday, May 13th Bruno Chocolate Creations2650 North US1, Ft. Pierce 772-466-4222 www.ChocTC.com PAMPER MOM with a Gift of Bruno Chocolates! When you finally need to call for tech support en-USWen-USell, it finally happened. Your en-US computer has issues and its time en-US to call for help.en-US en-US It happens to every computer user eventualen-US -en-US ly that dreaded call to tech support. This en-US week, I will share some tips that can make en-US that inevitable call to tech support go en-US smoothly.en-US The first question that you have to ask en-US yourself is: Who are you going to call? en-US That answer depends on the issues you are en-US having. en-US For instance, if you are having Internet en-US connection issues, you may want to call en-US your Internet provider (AT&T, Comcast, en-US Spectrum, or whoever you are using to en-US connect to the Internet). en-US If you are having hardware issues, such as en-US problems accessing a printer or other en-US device, you may need to contact support for en-US that device. en-US For problems with your operating system en-US (Windows wont load, etc.), a call to en-US Microsofts tech support may be in order. en-US If you are having problems with the en-US computer itself (getting errors or beep en-US codes as soon as you turn it on), you may en-US want to call the manufacturer of the en-US computer. en-US Thats a lot of decisions to make even en-US before making the call, but you need to be en-US clear about the nature of the problem. en-US Answering these questions beforehand will en-US help clarify your issues before you make the en-US call. en-US Also, dont forget the warranty.en-US en-US Some devices may carry warranties that last en-US years. It would be frustrating to fix or en-US replace a device only to find out you could en-US have had it fixed under warranty. en-US Once youre clear on whom to call and en-US why, sit in front of the computer when you en-US make the call. There is little that any phone en-US support technician can do for you if you are en-US not sitting in front of the machine. You en-US have to be their eyes and ears so make en-US sure that when you call for help, you are at en-US your computer. en-US After spending some time on hold, en-US (nothing I can help with there) you will en-US finally get someone on the line. Remember: en-US This person is new to your issue and has no en-US idea what you have or have not tried yet. en-US Hes going to ask you questions and perhaps en-US have you click some things. Even if he is en-US having you click something you have en-US already clicked, comments such as, I en-US already tried that, dont help. He en-US hasnt tried anything yet and needs to en-US start somewhere. en-US Also keep in mind that he probably en-US does this type of thing 40 hours a en-US week and knows exactly what hes en-US looking for. When he asks you to click en-US something and you dont immediately en-US see it, dont instantly reply with, I en-US dont have that. Do a thorough scans en-US of all of the options in whatever screen en-US you are looking in and make sure. en-US Nine times out of 10, youll find it.en-US Follow the directions the support en-US person gives you, and try not to get en-US distracted by all the other stuff that will pop en-US up on the way. Stay focused on the instrucen-US -en-US tions and youll usually get through most en-US issues quickly and without too much en-US frustration. en-US Hopefully, you wont have to make that en-US call, but when you do, having as much en-US information in front of you will help. en-US Things such as any specific error messages en-US that may be popping up, what you were en-US doing when the problem occurred, and so en-US on. This information is invaluable to the en-US tech support person on the other end of the en-US phone. en-US If you have a quick question, thats en-US great. Just remember that 99 percent of all en-US tech support calls are just quick questions. en-US Its the answer that can drag on for hours. en-US So, how did I come up with this weeks en-US subject matter? Well, Ive been doing en-US remote computer support over the phone en-US for more than 20 years and often spend up en-US to 40 hours a week on the phone helping en-US people walk through their computer issues. en-US I still fix computers and over the years I en-US found that the calls that go quickest are the en-US ones where the caller is at least a little en-US prepared, in front of the computer when en-US they call and follow my instructions en-US precisely without getting distracted along en-US the way. en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers.

en-US 10 en-USdiscuss the issues and revisions to the ordien-US -en-US nance. When putting together the agenda en-US item, we realized the new ordinance was in en-US the agenda but there also were some old en-US ordinances in there. There is some confuen-US -en-US sion, so staff is recommending this be conen-US -en-US tinued to the May 15 meeting.en-US Ms. Barbieri then introduced Fort Lauen-US -en-US derdale-based communications attorney en-US Gary Resnick, the outside consultant hired en-US by the county to guide staff through the en-US revision process. Mr. Resnick reminded en-US commissioners that the new Florida statute en-US nullified most of their regulatory powers en-US over any proposed 5G infrastructure.en-US Florida was not alone in adopting such a en-US statute, he explained. This was a priority of en-US the wireless communications industry en-US nationwide. The county has been under a en-US temporary moratorium to consider regulaen-US -en-US tions to implement the statute, and the ordien-US-en-US nance thats been drafted is the result of en-US input from your staff. From an engineering en-US standpoint, theyre going to have to regulate en-US and actually process the applications for en-US these facilities in the rights of way.en-US Even though staff asked to postpone the en-US discussion, Commission Chairwoman en-US Frannie Hutchinson opened the hearing to en-US the members of the public in attendance. en-US Several area residents spoke out against the en-US rumored harmful effects of the new techen-US-en-US nology, including Diane Goldberg of Port en-US St. Lucie.en-US Please require the Department of Health en-US to study and evaluate the degree of hazards en-US associated with the small wireless facilities en-US and put a moratorium on them until a study en-US and evaluations are completed, she said. en-US This is a form of pollution; without the en-US moratorium, it could be a worse epidemic en-US than the Opioid crisis or all the people who en-US have died from smoking cigarettes.en-US Mr. Resnick reminded the Commission en-US and all those in attendance that the deployen-US -en-US ment act specifically prohibited local goven-US -en-US erning bodies from regulating 5G facilities en-US due to their perceived negative health en-US effects. He also emphasized that such fears en-US could not come to pass until the technology en-US was actually fully developed.en-US When folks talk about 5G, when the en-US industry talks about 5G, it doesnt exist curen-US -en-US rently, he explained. What theyre really en-US looking to do is densify the most profitable en-US areas for increasing the capacity for 4G, en-US which is the current maximum broadband en-US wireless service that exists in America. What en-US theyre really looking to do is build these en-US facilities where there are very profitable en-US areas, where people are willing to spend en-US over $100 or $150 a month for advanced en-US broadband wireless service or where theres en-US heavy usage.en-US Mr. Resnick emphasized that industry en-US officials were still balking at some of the en-US countys proposed restrictions. These en-US include a mandated pre-submission meeten-US-en-US ing for applications and a $50,000 permaen-US -en-US nent security bond, which staff had already en-US agreed to reduce to $35,000, a move still en-US rejected by the industry. He encouraged en-US commissioners not to concede on the en-US pre-submission meetings due to a mandated en-US 14-day turnaround on applications, and en-US most commissioners also refused to agree to en-US the lower security bond amount.en-US I personally am not going to support that en-US reduction, Commissioner Chris Dzadvosky en-US said. I just wrote that up on the back of a en-US napkin: 67 counties, if they all charge en-US $50,000, youre only looking at $3 million en-US for an industry that made $40 billion.en-US Chairwoman Hutchinson agreed.en-US Commissioner youve got a second one en-US on that one, she said. Im not going to go en-US down.en-US After unanimously voting to continue en-US that discussion until May 15, the Commisen-US-en-US sion also took up a debate over amending en-US specific sections of its cell tower ordinance. en-US The Planning & Zoning Commission had en-US previously voted unanimously April 19 to en-US have the County Board accept the draft en-US ordinance with specific changes wanted by en-US amateur radio officials incorporated into en-US the text.en-US The Commission will hold the second en-US public hearings on May 15 beginning at 9 en-US a.m. in the Commission chambers located en-US at 2300 Virginia Ave. in Fort Pierce.

Maybe en-US make breakfast for her on a Saturday en-US morning, say thank you when she does the en-US laundry or tell her how nice the meal was en-US she just cooked. Stop taking the everyday en-US things she does for granted and let her en-US know how much you appreciate it. You will en-US be surprised how much Mom will love it. en-US On Mothers Day, do something personal en-US like giving her a handwritten note, a en-US scrapbook of family photos, or a special en-US dinner with wine and do it yourself from en-US the heart. That will be something she will en-US remember forever. en-US So, what should you cook? I will give you en-US a couple good ideas. You decide.en-USSTEAK AU POIVREen-USIngredients en-US 2 tenderloin steaks, 6 to 8 ounces each,en-US no more than 1-1/2 inches thick en-US Kosher salt en-US 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns en-US 1 tablespoon unsalted butteren-US 1 teaspoon olive oil en-US 1 teaspoon prepared mustarden-US 1/3-cup beef stock en-US 1/3-cup brandy or bourbonen-US 1 cup heavy cream en-US en-US Directions en-US Remove the steaks from the refrigerator en-US for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour en-US prior to cooking. en-US Sprinkle all sides with salt. Coarsely en-US crush the peppercorns with a mortar and en-US pestle, the bottom of a cast iron skillet, or en-US using a mallet and pie pan. Spread the en-US peppercorns evenly onto a plate. Press the en-US fillets, on both sides, into the en-US pepper until it coats the en-US surface. Set aside. en-US In a medium skillet over en-US medium heat, melt the butter en-US and olive oil. As soon as the en-US butter and oil begin to turn en-US golden and smoke, gently en-US place the steaks in the pan. For en-US medium-rare, cook for four en-US minutes on each side. Once en-US done, remove the steaks, cover en-US with a plate and set aside. en-US Add brandy to the pan and en-US carefully ignite the alcohol en-US with a long match. Gently en-US shake pan until the flames die. en-US Return the pan to medium en-US heat and add the cream, en-US mustard, stock, and bring the en-US mixture to a boil and whisk en-US until the sauce coats the back en-US of a spoon, about five to six en-US minutes. Season to taste with en-US salt. en-US Add the steaks back to the pan, spoon the en-US sauce over and serve.en-USCHOCOLATE MOUSSEen-USIngredientsen-US 1 quart heavy or whipping cream en-US 14 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted en-US in the microwave. 20 -30 secondsen-US Directionsen-US Whip the cream to soft peaks and add en-US about 1/3 of the melted chocolate. Fold en-US gently with a rubber spatula. Mix the en-US remaining chocolate into the whipped en-US cream. Mix only until combined, as you will en-US deflate the cream if you over mix. en-US Place the mousse into decorative serving en-US cups. Top with a cherry.en-US Costa Magoulas is dean of the Mori en-US Hosseini College of Hospitality and Culinary en-US Management at Daytona State College. en-US Contact him at (386) 506-3578 or en-US magoulc@en-US daytonastate.edu.

en-US 15 rfntbn ftnnn r rfnftrb rnf rn fnnn nrrnf nfr tnnr r rfnn rnnnnfr n f nrrrfnrtbtrrrrfrrrrrrnrtrrrfnrnrrrfrfntbrtb ntntbbrbfnrfbrbfn I en-USf there were three words that could en-US describe the summers in Florida it en-US would be rain, sun and humidity. These en-US conditions can make summer planting a en-US real challenge and can really put a damper en-US on your gardening for the summer months. en-US There are, however, plants that will do well en-US during the hot summer months and with en-US only minimal care. en-US If you want your planting to be as en-US carefree as possible, it is probably wise to en-US avoid planting a lot of annuals during this en-US time of year. Many of your favorites such as en-US petunia, New Guinea impatiens, vinca and en-US sometimes-even marigolds can be a real en-US chore to maintain during our hottest en-US months. You have more luck if you plant en-US hardy varieties such as Firecracker plant, en-US Panama rose, and Fire bush. Even Hibiscus en-US will do well if you water it at least a couple en-US times of week. Roses will also do well if you en-US have them in well-drained soil and spray en-US them regularly with Orthene or Orthenex en-US for disease control and to control black en-US spot. en-US If you want a great and fast growing en-US climbing vine for say an arbor or maybe a en-US large trellis, try Brown-Eyed Susan or even en-US Mandeville. The Brown-Eyed Susan is a en-US super fast grower and will overtake your en-US arbor in about a season of growing. Mine en-US even survived two hurricanes and came en-US back with flying colors. If you want some en-US lower growing color, try lantana. This is just en-US the tip of the iceberg for ideas on plants that en-US will do well during the summer. Next we en-US will talk a little about some of these en-US varieties in a little more detail.en-US One of my favorite plants to utilize en-US during the hot summer months is the en-US Firecracker bush. This fern-like plant grows en-US in a weeping pattern. The branches initially en-US start to grow upward but the weight of the en-US branch soon makes it cascade in a weeping en-US pattern. This feature makes the plant very en-US unique. The plant will produce radiant en-US clusters of bright red flowers that resemble en-US firecrackers. The flowers are about one inch en-US long and can really add a splash of color to en-US your yard. You can also put these plants in en-US hanging baskets. The plants do well in full en-US sun or will even tolerate some partial shade. en-US The plant likes a well-drained soil but also en-US likes to be watered on a regular basis. The en-US plant will require more water if planted in a en-US container than if it is planted in the ground. en-US The Firecracker plant can grow as tall as 3 en-US feet but I have seen some older plants that en-US have even been a bit larger. Cuttings can be en-US easily propagated into new plants.en-US Another interesting and colorful plant is en-US a plant called Panama Rose. This plant en-US produces vibrant reddish-pink flowers that en-US grow in clusters that resemble a rose, hence en-US the name. The plant is actually a tender en-US plant that does well during the warm en-US months but cannot tolerate cold temperaen-US -en-US tures during the winter months. The plant en-US will attract butterflies and also produces a en-US fragrant scent after the sun sets in the en-US evening. The plant enjoys well-drained soil en-US but does not like to be completely dry for en-US long periods of time. You should put this en-US plant where it well get some protection en-US from the hot afternoon sun. You might have en-US to do a bit of hunting to find this plant as it en-US is not carried at all nurseries.en-US Another tropical plant is a woody en-US perennial called the Fire Bush. It is a fast en-US growing plant with elliptic shaped leaves en-US and produces a red flower that looks similar en-US to the Firecracker plant. The plant can get en-US quite large and grow up to 12 feet high. The en-US plant is a great attractant for butterflies and en-US hummingbirds and also produces small en-US fruit clusters. The plant contains anti-bacteen-US -en-US rial chemicals and can be used topically to en-US treat insect bites and stings. The plant will en-US do well in sun or partial shade and needs en-US well drained but moist soil. The plant can en-US be used successfully as a hedge or as a en-US colorful accent plant. It can be a great en-US addition to your flower collection.en-US Next week I will continue with more en-US planting ideas you can use during the hot en-US summer months in Florida.en-US Joe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.
