LUCIE COUNTY Pat Alley is a Lady en-US of Jewelia, that is.en-US The Jewelia Project is a group of 12 local en-US women who share ownership of a diaen-US-en-US mond necklace, using it as a means to raise public awareness of and much -needed fund en-US-en-US ing for HANDS of St. Lucie County. The en-US HANDS Clinic provides access to free healthcare to St. Lucie Countys low -income, en-USuninsured, adult population and relies on en-US public donations for its operations. en-US Pat Alley, likely best known for her years en-US as the marketing guru for the former Riveren-US -en-US side National Bank, chose May as her month en-US to wear the necklace known as Jewelia and en-US spend her time advocating for the clinic. If en-US you follow her on Facebook, youve seen her en-US posts about the viable role the clinic plays in en-US this community where one in every three en-US adults is uninsured.en-US Because shes been involved in so many en-US aspects of keeping St. Lucie County healthy, en-US Pat may have touched more lives that anyen-US -en-US one can count. She supports the March of en-US Dimes because her premature grandbaby en-US is lucky to be alive today; the Humane Socien-US -en-US ety of St. Lucie County because she en-US believes in rescuing rather than buying; the en-US 100 Club because she believes our first en-US responders should get the full support of en-US this community; and the Lighthouse Founen-US -en-US dation and Little Feet because she knows en-US that some kids just need a little more love en-US and kindness in their lives. en-US Among the many nonprofits for which en-US she has donated her time, talent, and treaen-US -en-US sure, is one that is closest to her heart The en-US Childrens Services Council. Pat has served en-US on its Board of Directors for three terms. en-US Executive Director Sean Boyle said, Mrs. en-US Alley is so wonderful shes been appointed en-US to the Council by two yes, two different en-US governors. Shes been a steadfast advocate en-US for children and is always the first to volunen-US -en-US teer to work directly with the community.en-US Pat has served on the Board of Directors en-US for Main Street Fort Pierce for more than 25 -years, where she has been instrumental en-USin its continued success. Doris Tillman, en-US Executive Director of Main Street said, Pat en-US has been a true asset to Main Street Fort en-US Pierce. Her love for her community became en-US a strong commitment to supporting every en-US project weve set our sights on.en-US And she serves on the Board of Directors en-US for HANDS of St. Lucie County, a Volunen-US -en-US teers in Medicine clinic, where she has been a three -year member of the prestigious Jew en-US-en-US elia Project. Never one to say No, in true en-US Pat Alley fashion, when asked if shed like to en-US be a part of this very special group, Pat en-US responded with a rousing, Hell, yes! Pat, en-US along with the other members of this elite en-US group of women have raised more than en-US $520,000 for the clinic.en-US Not one to rest on her laurels, when she en-US retired, she still needed and wanted to be a en-US part of things, so she took a position worken-US -en-US ing for Diamond Litty and the Public en-US Defenders office, assisting with its annual en-US golf tournament that raises funds to benefit en-US Life Builders of the Treasure Coast. en-US Sydney Liebman, former staff member of en-US the HANDS Clinic, says, I have known Pat en-US Alley nearly all of my adult life. In banking, en-US she was known for her marketing prowess. en-US Like Zerox is synonymous to photo copying en-US and Coke is to soda, Pat Alley was to maren-US -en-US keting, and I wanted to be just like her. On en-US top of that, shes the best kind of friend anyen-US -en-US one could ever have always there for you.en-US Pat is a true blue Fort Pierce girl, and in en-US fact, actually bleeds orange and blue for the en-US University of Florida Gators. Have you seen en-US her house? Her wardrobe? She is married to en-US Bob and they have three children Kathi, en-US Bobby, and Patrick. Shell be more than en-US happy to sit down and talk about them and en-US her five grandchildren and four greats or en-US even her two fur babies. en-US This Fort Pierce girl, who grew up going en-US to the Sunrise Theatre when it was a movie en-US house, drinking birch beer at the old A&W, en-US and driving her car in the hard sand of Fort en-US Pierce Beach is grateful every day for everyen-US -en-US thing but nothing means more to her than her family, her fur -ba bies, her health, and en-USher ability and desire to help others.en-US To learn more about the HANDS Clinic, en-US to volunteer, to donate, or to support The Jewelia Project, call (772) 462 -5652. en-USThe Jewelia Project raises money, awarenessen-USBy Sydney Liebmanen-USSpecial to Hometown News en-USPat Alley

en-US 8 Rain, rain go away en-USSen-USomeone, please, turn off the faucet. en-US Tell Mother Nature that we have had en-US enough rain! While we will now see en-US greener fairways and lakes with water in en-US them, we will also lose 50 yards of roll on en-US our drives (insert sad face here).en-US As the rain washed out yet another en-US planned round, one of my buddies en-US wondered aloud why it is that some courses en-US or holes drain well and others do not. Most en-US of us dont ever think about what is under en-US the course. The myriad of catch basins and en-US drainage pipes installed before the first en-US blade of grass grew on the course is usually en-US of no concern. When the rains do fall, en-US however, all of these work in concert with en-US the design of the course to rid each hole of en-US water as quickly as possible. en-US My late friend, Charles Ankron, was an en-US internationally acclaimed golf course en-US architect. I used to do some side work for en-US him and I remember asking him that very en-US question.en-US There are three factors that affect course en-US drainage, he explained. Site, soil and the en-US client. en-US The first factor, site, varies from course to en-US course. Some courses are located in areas en-US with little rainfall, strong drying winds and en-US an abundance of sunshine. Of course these en-US courses drain well.en-US In Florida, courses are normally subject en-US to a lot of rain, and while we do have strong en-US winds and abundant sunshine, we suffer en-US from high humidity. The evaporation rate is en-US much lower than youd expect. We also en-US suffer from not having much elevation en-US change. Water simply has no desire to run en-US anywhere.en-US Soil content is next. The greater the en-US amount of topsoil that a course has, the en-US better it can handle a downpour. Topsoil en-US will absorb a large amount of water, and the en-US thicker that layer, the more water the en-US course can handle. en-US However, it is the subsurface soil stratum en-US has the biggest influence on course en-US drainage. A course with a sandy subsurface en-US will have an excellent absorption rate. A en-US course with a very sandy sub-base course en-US can stay open when some of the exclusive en-US private clubs in the area have to shut down. en-US Thats because it absorbs water so well.en-US Courses unlucky enough to have a hard en-US subsurface, such as marl or sandstone, will en-US need more lakes, more storm drains and en-US more collection areas for the water that the en-US course will shed during a storm or wet en-US season. en-US Probably the biggest factor, aside from en-US nature, is the client. If the course owner or en-US developer has the money and is sensitive to en-US the golf course, he or she may be willing to en-US spend the money needed to design and en-US build a good drainage system. If the owner en-US simply wants an amenity for the housing en-US development, then chances are that money en-US will not be spent and the course wont drain en-US well.en-US If the soil can en-US absorb an inch of en-US rainfall and it rains en-US two inches, the en-US ground is fighting a en-US losing battle. The en-US high points of the en-US course will absorb en-US the first inch and en-US then the second en-US inch will flow en-US downhill. As that en-US water flows to a low en-US point or a catch en-US basin, it grows en-US exponentially en-US adding itself to the water already accumuen-US -en-US lating downhill.en-US Most architects use many more drains en-US now than 15 or 20 years ago. I remember a en-US total renovation that Ankrom did where he en-US added 220 additional drains to to capture en-US water. The original early 1970s design had en-US water running a thousand feet before en-US finding a drain. That was changed so that en-US water ran no more than a hundred feet.en-US Modern architects also use nature to help en-US drain the course. Sand retention areas and en-US waste areas have become quite popular. en-US Lakes are used to do three things, disperse en-US water, generate fill for building the course, en-US and storm water storage.en-US The fairways and rough arent the only en-US places that a golf course architect works to en-US drain water from the course. The greens of en-US a modern course have a complicated en-US drainage system built into them as well. en-US Todays modern green is topped with 12 en-US inches of custom topsoil. Under that is four en-US inches of gravel followed by a herringbone en-US system of drainpipes set 20 feet apart. The en-US water that makes it to the drainpipes is en-US taken to a lake, swale, dry well or other low en-US point well away from the green. en-US Thanks to modern irrigation, courses are en-US kept very lush. Unfortunately, sometimes en-US very hard rains follow this and simply adds en-US too much water to the equation.en-US For now Im happy to see the rain. We en-US can always use a few drops. I just need en-US Mother Nature to turn it off by the en-US weekend.en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.

Mulligans Beach House en-US Bar received 466, and Beachside Hospitality en-US Group received 481 points. Basically en-US Beachside Hospitality Group scored the en-US highest for the business plan, site improveen-US -en-US ment plan, qualifications, timeline and referen-US -en-US ences.en-US The first area resident speaking in support en-US of the Tiki Bar & Restaurant, Fort Pierce en-US attorney Brad Culverhouse, said the Comen-US -en-US mission should reward the faithfulness of the en-US owners and employees of the current marina en-US restaurant. en-US Theyve been good citizens of Fort Pierce, en-US theyve contributed greatly to the redevelopen-US -en-US ment of downtown, theyve provided the en-US ambiance, the food and the great service at en-US the Tiki Bar & Restaurant, he said. We en-US shouldnt say goodbye to the people who en-US were here in the trenches when times were en-US bad. en-US Commissioner Thomas Perona asked to en-US remove the item from the Consent Agenda en-US for discussion due to the significantly public en-US interest in the matter and afterward asked en-US City Attorney James Messer for guidance.en-US We owe it to the public to be very transen-US -en-US parent about this issue, he said. We have a en-US certain authority here and a certain legal lane en-US that we have to stay in, and I would like to en-US identify that so that we know what we can en-US and cant do this evening. en-US Mr. Messer read from the city charter and en-US said commissioners only had two choices.en-US The charter states that the bid of the en-US highest bidder complying with the terms and en-US conditions set forth in such notice -the en-US notice is the RFP -shall be accepted unless en-US the City Commission shall reject any and all en-US bids. en-US Commissioner Rufus Alexander said the en-US choice set before commissioners mirrored en-US one they faced earlier that evening while en-US serving as the Fort Pierce Redevelopment en-US Agency and rejecting the staff recommendaen-US-en-US tion to accept a Hampton Inn hotel on the en-US old H. D. King Power Plant site. en-US Sounds familiar doesnt it? Commissionen-US-en-US er Alexander said to Commissioner Perona, en-US who had made the motion during the earlier en-US meeting to reject both the Hampton Inn and en-US a smaller hotel with a more residential comen-US-en-US ponent. We did that at 5:30 today, didnt en-US we?en-US Its interesting, the latter replied. en-US Colin Lloyd, a Fort Pierce attorney and en-US one of two brothers who operate the Tiki Bar en-US & Restaurant, expressed several concerns he en-US had with the RFP process to commissioners. en-US My particular concerns are that the citien-US -en-US zens have virtually no say in the process, he en-US said. It was basically submit a package, have en-US a 45-minute presentation, then this evaluaen-US -en-US tion board meets behind closed doors for 21 en-US minutes, and then a few days ago I find out en-US that we arent in the running.en-US Mr. Lloyd emphasized the difference en-US between his restaurant and the Beachside en-US Hospitality Group in two specific rating cateen-US-en-US gories, the timeline for improvements, and en-US experience in the city of Fort Pierce. In the en-US first, the newcomer earned 47 out of 50 en-US points for proposing to build a new two-stoen-US -en-US ry restaurant between Sept. 1, 2018 and Feb. en-US 1 of next year, while the Lloyds only earned en-US 17 points for proposing a slower remodel and en-US expansion over a two-year period while en-US maintaining the restaurant open. In the secen-US -en-US ond category, the St. Petersburg company en-US received 6 points, while the Lloyds received en-US 47. en-US Weve operated a restaurant here for 20 en-US years, we have three restaurants here, I have a en-US law firm here and we employ over 200 people en-US and we got a 48 out of 50, Mr. Lloyd added. en-US As far as I know, and I havent heard to the en-US contrary, they dont operate businesses in the en-US City of Fort Pierce but they got six points. en-US They said they were immediately going to en-US knock down the Tiki and rebuild a $2 million en-US restaurant in six months [in the first categoen-US -en-US ry]. Its not even close to reasonable. Conen-US -en-US struction -something of that magnitude -en-US cannot be done in six months. But they get en-US 47 points out of 50 for an unreasonable timeen-US -en-US line.en-US Commissioner Perona asked the city clerk en-US for an explanation of why the only Fort en-US Pierce bidder didnt receive all 50 local expeen-US -en-US rience points and how an out-of-town comen-US-en-US pany got six local experience points, but she en-US said the individual voting process kept her in en-US the dark as well.en-US I have no idea, she said. Wed have to go en-US back and look at the individual score sheets; en-US Ive never seen them, so I honestly dont en-US know.en-US Commissioner Sessions cast the lone disen-US-en-US senting vote to accept staff recommendation en-US of the Beachside Hospitality Group proposal, en-US claiming the bidding instructions were vague en-US and lamenting the lack of commissioner en-USinput in the process.en-US It was the same thing with the FPRA en-US meeting earlier today: We keep going back en-US and forth and its just a repetitive process en-US thats not going anywhere, he said. So we en-US need to get the process right. I would like for en-US us to have more input as a Board before the en-US bids go out.en-US Mayor Linda Hudson insisted that evaluaen-US -en-US tion committee members and other staff had en-US done exactly as they were instructed to do. en-US I think one of the things thats happening en-US -that happened with the hotel, and now its en-US happening with this -is that we have a situaen-US -en-US tion where everybody wants Fort Pierce to en-US improve and everybody has a different idea en-US of how that can best be achieved, she said. en-US And I think that many people in this audien-US -en-US ence have good intentions, just like this en-US Commission has the best of intentions.en-US Just before making the motion to accept en-US staffs recommendation of the best bidder, en-US Commissioner Perona complained about the en-US city having to be in the landlord business. en-US Im troubled by the fact that I dont see en-US anything in the RFP that was faulty, he said. en-US The Tiki had an opportunity to compete en-US with the other two, at whatever way it was en-US done. We always try to find the best things en-US for our community; Im not saying the Tiki en-US isnt the best thing for our community, but as en-US far as the directives that we have given on en-US this RFP, I have found nothing that would en-US conflict with that.en-US The director and vice president of en-US Beachside Hospitality Group, Gary Hardie, en-US failed to respond to email questions from en-US The Hometown News by press time on en-US whether the company had ever previously en-US built a two-story facility from the ground up en-US in six months. Ms. Cox said her and the other en-US members of the evaluation committee found en-US no reason to doubt the estimated construcen-US -en-US tion time. en-US As for the timeline, there are never any en-US guarantees with construction, but we did feel en-US it was not unreasonable, she said. en-USTikien-USFrom page 1

en-US 14 en-USTREASURE COAST For the Love of en-US Surfing, which is hosted by the organizaen-US -en-US tion Future 6, was designed to introduce en-US young people with autism, Asbergers and en-US Down syndrome, to the water in a welcomen-US -en-US ing fashion. But it hasnt been nearly as en-US embraced by people in Martin and St. Lucie en-US counties as other areas. Routinely, there are en-US dozens of children who participate in the en-US surfing camps from just south of here in en-US Palm Beach County, but despite the short en-US trip to the area from all across the Treasure en-US Coast, organizers say they need more peoen-US -en-US ple to show up to keep the project going.en-US The surf camps in April and May got en-US rained out, but were back in Stuart for en-US another attempt, said Executive Director en-US Donnie Ottofaro. Were still in Boynton en-US Beach on the last Saturday of every month, en-US but we will be doing the second Saturday of en-US every month in Stuarten-US Were still trying to stay as active as posen-US -en-US sible on the Treasure Coast.en-US The first event will be hosted on June 9 at en-US Stuart Beach, located at 825 N.E. Ocean en-US Blvd., in Stuart from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.en-US June will present perfect conditions for en-US the surf camp, so the organization is hopeful en-US that people will keep track of the website for en-US updates. Also, participant and volunteer en-US registration can be done online at www.en-US f6helpinghand.org soon or on the day of the en-US events. The organization welcomes as many en-US volunteer hands as possible 8:30 a.m. for set en-US up, pre-meeting, and kiddos in the water by en-US 9:15 a.m. No surfing experience is required, en-US and all watermen/women skill levels are en-US needed.en-US The surf program in Boynton is just en-US explosive and we finished up 2017 with an en-US average of around 54 kids per month, where en-US we only averaged around seven or eight in en-US Stuart, Mr. Ottofaro said. Were struggling en-US to find families that want to come to a free en-US surfing program once a month.en-US Mr. Ottofaro said that because the cities en-US of Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce are in such en-US close proximity, the camps are a perfect en-US opportunity for people from that area to en-US participate.en-US You could be 10 or 20 minutes away en-US from Stuart Beach, so there isnt much of a en-US problem, Mr. Ottofaro said. There is a en-US massive amount of difference that were seeen-US-en-US ing between families on the Treasure Coast en-US and those south of here.en-US For those who would like to get involved, en-US please send an email at info@f6helpingen-US-en-US hand.org.
