en-US 2 en-USAnthony Louis en-US Bonnaen-US What is your full en-US name and age?en-US Anthony Louis en-US Bonna, 31en-US en-US Where do you en-US reside?en-US Port St. Lucie en-US Do you have famen-US -en-US ily ties locally?en-US My parents and I en-US moved to St. Lucie County in 1990 and I owe en-US everything I am to this community. I was en-US raised in my commission district in Port St. en-US Lucie and graduated from Centennial High en-US School in 2005. Growing up as a little brothen-US -en-US er in Big Brothers Big Sisters, I was fortunate en-US to be mentored by many members of our en-US community, including Judi and Allen Miller, en-US Gail Kavanagh, Mike Brown Sr., Mary Anne en-US Patan and countless others. After graduating en-US from Georgetown University with a finance en-US degree, my wife Sasha and I moved to Fort en-US Pierce in 2014. en-US What are your professional qualificaen-US -en-US tions?en-US Im proud to be a local small business en-US owner, Eagle Scout, 4th Degree Knight of en-US Columbus and Rotarian. I also serve on the en-US boards of Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Chamen-US -en-US ber of Commerce, and the Education Founen-US -en-US dation. en-US What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now and if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue? en-US Water quality is not only key to our public en-US health and quality of life, but to many of our en-US local businesses and our tourism. I support en-US plans on the books to increase water storage en-US north, south, east, and west of Lake en-US Okeechobee. We must monitor and address en-US failing culverts and support septic-to-sewer en-US conversions whenever feasible. Finally, we en-US must speak out and hold the federal governen-US -en-US ment accountable for their releases that are en-US harming our waterways. In addition to water en-US quality, I am focused on job creation and proen-US -en-US tecting taxpayers by reducing the size and en-US scope of government. en-US Bobby Hopkinsen-US What is your full en-US name and age?en-US Bobby Hopkins, en-US age 61en-US Where do you en-US reside?en-US Fort Pierceen-US Do you have famien-US -en-US ly ties locally?en-US My wife Kristine en-US Hopkins, Mom Eveen-US -en-US lyn Hopkins, nine children, 12 grandkids and en-US one great grandchild.en-US What are your professional qualificaen-US -en-US tions?en-US I have a bachelors degree in management, en-US and have been a selfemployed business en-US owner for 37 years. I was a professional footen-US -en-US ball player and 11-time World Arm Wrestling en-US Championen-US I am serving my fourth year on the Planen-US -en-US ning and Zoning Board with two of them as en-US vice chairman. I am on my fifth year on the en-US Port of Fort Pierce Advisory Committee. en-US Im also an ordained minister for Potter en-US House Ministry since 2004 and was ordained en-US at Fairlawn Baptist Church as minister in en-US 2010.en-US What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now and if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US en-US The biggest issue is higher paying wages en-US and local businesses needing skilled labor. en-US Residents need higher paying jobs to support en-US their families and live the American Dream. en-US The average home in St. Lucie County is curen-US -en-US rently is $200,000 to $250,000. The other en-US concern with residents is how to afford housen-US -en-US ing. Residents are interested in vocational en-US training, and both the county and Port St. en-US Lucie are partnering with Indian River State en-US College for a vocational school, so we are en-US working in the right direction. My past expeen-US -en-US rience as a contractor will be a voice of expeen-US -en-US rience for the board. en-US Dan Kureken-US What is your full en-US name and age?en-US Daniel J Kurek, 68en-US Where do you en-US reside?en-US I moved to Florida en-US in 1971 and lived in en-US Martin County for en-US eight months before en-US moving to St. Lucie en-US County in 1972. I en-US bought my first home en-US in 1975 in St. Lucie County District 1. I en-US bought my present home in Port St. Lucie in en-US 1996, which is in District 2 of St. Lucie Counen-US-en-US ty. en-US Do you have family ties locally? en-US I have lived in Florida for 47 years next en-USmonth. My only daughter lives in Orlando en-US with her husband and two children. My wife en-US passed away in 2015; however, I an engaged en-US to a wonderful lady. My parents are deceased.en-US What are your professional qualificaen-US -en-US tions?en-US I was the assistant finance director, finance en-US director and the first assistant county adminen-US -en-US istrator for St. Lucie County. During the 16 en-US years, I developed and managed the budget en-US for St. Lucie County and clerk of court. I also en-US worked with the sheriff, supervisor of elecen-US -en-US tions, tax collector and property appraiser in en-US the process of budget development. In addien-US -en-US tion to working in local government, I worked en-US for Dandee Bread Bakery and managed the en-US St. Lucie Community Credit Union. I curen-US -en-US rently prepare income tax returns for 100 clien-US -en-US ents and work as a part-time controller for a en-US citrus company. en-US What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now and if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue?en-US Actually there are three major issues: en-US maintenance, reconstruction and construcen-US -en-US tion of the countys infrastructure; bringing en-US clean industry to St. Lucie County; and en-US responsible budgeting. en-US If the one-half cent sales tax is passed, the en-US revenue from the tax will be used for mainteen-US -en-US nance, reconstruction and construction of en-US roads, bridges and culverts. en-US Bringing clean industry to St. Lucie County en-US is a multifaceted issue. The cities, county and en-US School District have to work together with en-US existing businesses and colleges to make St. en-US Lucie County the place where companies en-US want to establish their facilities. en-US This county is at the door of future posterien-US -en-US ty given the proper development of the Port en-US and Airport. These initiatives partnered with en-US the efforts of the Economic Development en-US Council will push this county through that en-US door. en-US A county commissioner has the fiduciary en-US responsibility to protect the citizens of the en-US county. Cutting or increasing taxes or fees can en-US affect law enforcement, services to citizens en-US and infrastructure maintenance. A plan to en-US back up the change in tax levy or fees is essenen-US -en-US tial to competent governing. en-US James Tayloren-US en-US What is your full en-US name and age?en-US James Taylor, 31 en-US years olden-US Where do you en-US reside?en-US Port St. Lucieen-US Do you have famen-US-en-US ily ties locally?en-US Im the third genen-US-en-US eration of my family en-US -born and raised in en-US Fort Pierce -a fifth en-US generation resident of the county and a ninth en-US generation Floridian. My great grandmother en-US Elizabeth Slay Murello grew up in the House en-US of the Seven Gables, which is now the welen-US -en-US come center at the Fort Pierce Marina. My en-US familys roots run deep here, as does our comen-US-en-US mitment to our community. My wife Jenna en-US and I reside in Port St. Lucie with our two en-US dogs, Gracie and Magnolia.en-US What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now and if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue? en-US The biggest issue facing not only the counen-US -en-US ty, but the majority of our state, is [poor] en-US water quality, which is caused by several difen-US -en-US ferent situations including Lake Okeechobee en-US discharges. As a county commissioner, Ill be en-US committed to working with all state and feden-US -en-US eral agencies as well as all stakeholders to get en-US this problem solved. Our water is the greatest en-US resource we have and the reason why many of en-US us live in Florida. en-USBonna en-USHopkins en-USKureken-USDistrict 2en-USFrom page 1 en-USTaylor en-USHometown Newsen-US is asking all primary en-US race candidates to answer the same quesen-US -en-US tions in order to give readers the informaen-US -en-US tion needed to make their best informed en-US choices for the upcoming St. Lucie County en-US primary elections.en-US There are two candidates in the primary en-US race for the St. Lucie School Board District 1 en-US seat: Steven Allen and sitting Board Memen-US -en-US ber Debbie Johnson Hawley.en-US Steven Allen en-US What is your full en-US name and age?en-US Steven Christopher en-US Allen, 40en-US Where do you en-US reside?en-US Port St. Lucieen-US Do you have famien-US-en-US ly ties locally?en-US I am married with en-US three children.en-US en-US What is the biggest issue concerning en-US your community right now and if elected, en-US how do you plan on solving that issue? en-US Wasteful spending and a lack of transparen-US -en-US ency in the School Board are the main proben-US -en-US lems facing the county educational system. en-US During my first year, I plan to push most en-US items on the agenda off the consent agenda en-US and force the Board to speak about the issues en-US that get voted on.

Higher pay reduces en-US teacher turnover. The key is to pay teachers en-US more without raising taxes.en-US Teachers are second only to parents in en-US importance -pay them accordingly! Research en-US proves high teacher retention rates improve en-US student outcomes and classroom perforen-US -en-US mance. en-US Increased teacher pay is NOT about more en-US taxes, it is about PRIORITIZING how those en-US tax dollars are spent. en-US Consider my proposals:en-US Use benchmark testing at the start / end of en-US the school year; aggregate results by teacheren-US Do not use standardized test scoresen-US Develop young teachers through leadership en-US and mentoringen-US Expand digital learning: videotape the best en-US teaching modules and utilize it for larger en-US numbers of studentsen-US Staying within the current budget without en-US increasing class size is essential.

When I am driving legally en-US in that far-right lane (you want me to stay en-US put in), dont come roaring up from behind en-US and tailgate (because you're trying to pass en-US other traffic from the right side or feel that en-US riding my bumper will make me really en-US speed-up so you can slip by alongside me. en-US Your being one foot behind me is of no conen-US -en-US cern after having driven 50+ years in 47 en-US states (soon to be 50), numerous other en-US countries (Autobahn) in every weather, trafen-US-en-US fic/drivers, and road conditions imaginable. en-US The discourtesy and stupidity seen on USA en-US highways today, no matter when and where en-US I am driving, is unbelievable. As a final en-US thought: I wonder if this person, who is en-US complaining about slow drivers, wears a en-US speedo while driving!?en-USFrom a grateful patient en-USFirst of all I would like to thank Dr Tate en-US and his staff for a excellent job well done in en-US performing my cataract eye surgery at New en-US Vision Eye Center of Vero Beach. The staff en-US was very friendly and they assured me great en-US comfort and care. I was a nervous wreck but en-US all the staff took really great care of me and I en-US would just like to say thank you very much en-US for the great care and service that was proen-US -en-US vided for me. en-USLearning lessonsen-USDuring a recent five-day get-away to en-US Provincetown, Mass., I thought how much en-US my hometown could learn from my vacaen-US -en-US tion destination.en-US And, then, by extrapolation, other such en-US beach communities along the Atlantic en-US coastline (Bar Harbor, Cape May, Hilton en-US Head, Jekyll Island, Myrtle Beach, Mystic en-US Seaport, Nantucket, Ocean City, Outer en-US Banks, Rehoboth Beach, Sag Harbor, St. en-US Simon's Island, Tybee Island, Virginia en-US Beach), including in Florida (Amelia Island, en-US Fort Lauderdale, Jax Beach, the Keys, Palm en-US Beach, South Beach, St. Augustine).en-US With the arts, fishing, golfing, outdoor en-US activities and surfing already going for us, en-US we'd do well to incorporate that which en-US works from other Eastern Seaboard en-US beachside locales. Rather than to imitate, en-US the goal being to adapt an appropriately en-US cohesive plan to replace our heretofore slapen-US -en-US dash anything goes approach.en-US As the once quaint charm associated with en-US our area has fallen by the wayside of disproen-US -en-US portionate sites and crowded roadways, how en-US smart it would seem to emulate the hard-en-US won lessons learned by others, both to our en-US north and south. Thereby having more en-US opportunity to move beyond fond memoen-US -en-US ries of fleeting times past, toward a realistien-US -en-US cally pleasant and prosperous future.en-USTomatoes are reden-USWould someone explain to the present en-US generation that pink tomatoes are not ripe.en-US Tomatoes, to be ripe, have to be red. Espeen-US -en-US cially restaurant owners, have you ever en-US bought tomato sauce that was pink?en-USPay attention to candidatesen-USYesterday I registered as a Democrat en-US instead of my usual independent status.en-US I always have voted as the independent en-US that I am . except in the primaries because en-US I can't vote in the primaries.en-US Sometimes I have changed and registered en-US republican and sometimes as a democrat so en-US I could include my voice of who gets into en-US office.en-US This year, there is no way I would vote for en-US a republican for any office in either the prien-US -en-US maries or general election in November.en-US Our state Legislature is republican-heavy; en-US Congress is the same.en-US They have all fallen down on the jobs the en-US state Constitution and U. S. Constitution en-US assigns to them and which they take an oath en-US to do.en-US I am pleased that we have so many people en-US from both parties running as candidates for en-US Governor of Florida.en-US I am researching all of them as I do with en-US every election.en-US I have to admit that my first instinct is to en-US vote for Gwen Graham because it's time we en-US bring the state into the 21st century and en-US elect a qualified, woman governor. However, en-US if in my research there is a man who meets en-US my requisites for governor, I'll vote for him.en-US My preliminary research doesn't indicate en-US that will happen.en-US Please pay attention to who is running for en-US what office.en-US Go online and get information about the en-US issues or candidates that are not published en-US by the backers as well as those published by en-US the backers or the party line no matter en-US which party line it is. Do your research so en-US you can vote in an informed, intelligent way en-US and not just what someone tells you to do.en-USIt can't be that difficulten-USWe moved to Florida more than 20 years en-US ago. In all those years we have never seen a en-USlawn-service truck with equipment trailer en-US that wasn't being driven from 12 to 18 inchen-US -en-US es over the center line into oncoming traffic. en-US Not once.en-US To make matters worse, there are thouen-US-en-US sands of these vehicles in the state. Having en-US to travel A1A frequently, we have had close en-US calls too many times to count. I consider en-US myself a courteous driver, but in many en-US instances with these violators, there is no en-US place for the law-abiding motorist to go.en-US There is an old saying "people who don't en-US know how to drive large vehicles should not en-US own big vehicles."

They look also en-US to create 125 new jobs over a three-year perien-US -en-US od with an average wage of $43,000 per job en-US including benefits.en-US Accel Senior Vice-President of Business en-US Development Dan Chung addressed both en-US commissions, telling their members that his en-US firm used very conservative numbers in en-US estimating median salaries and hoped to en-US attract the best of the best with even higher en-US salaries if they decide to choose Port St. Lucie en-US for their new facility. Accel currently operen-US -en-US ates a 150,000 square-foot factory in Meriden en-US and a 100,000-square-foot facility in Avilla, en-US Indiana and needs to expand to better serve en-US its domestic market and growing internaen-US -en-US tional business needs. The city is competing en-US against two other communities in Connectien-US-en-US cut and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina in en-US hopes of winning the companys newest en-US expansion project.en-US The average wage numbers, $47,000, we en-US think that is a very minimal conservative en-US estimate, not necessarily taking into account en-US the 10-percent management type jobs that en-US will be created, Mr. Chung explained. One en-US of the things that were also keen about is hiren-US -en-US ing the best people, and if the best people en-US come at a cost thats higher than what the en-US industry average is, then we are very happy to en-US do that to get good employees and be a lasten-US -en-US ing influence in the area.en-US Mr. Tesch emphasized the projected 125 en-US high-paying jobs would just be the tip of the en-US iceberg as far as the additional ripple effects en-US the companys choice of St. Lucie County en-US would create.en-US We anticipate a $21.2 million impact to en-US the economy for new construction, and with en-US the creation of indirect and direct jobs, $166 en-US million, he explained to both commissions. en-US Both with direct, indirect and induced en-US effect, this would create 393 jobs. All of this en-US includes not only the actual output of the en-US company and the jobs that are created, but en-US also the indirect impact of businesses that en-US provide jobs and services to Accel. Then you en-US have the labor output, that total income that en-US is discretionary income within our economy, en-US providing an estimated $150 million of ecoen-US-en-US nomic impact, so you can see that this will en-US have a profound impact.en-US The EDC president further described the en-US countys financial obligations if Accel decides en-US to take up the regions offer.en-US So going to St. Lucie County, with the ad en-US valoram tax exemption, the estimated en-US 10-year amount is $2.5 million, he added. en-US We are also working with the St. Lucie en-US County Commission on a job growth investen-US -en-US ment grant, which approximates $165,000, en-US and a portion of that will be used for the local en-US financial match for the states Qualified Taren-US -en-US get Industry Tax Refund.en-US Port St. Lucie Business Navigator Elijah en-US Wooten then offered details on Oculus en-US Optikgerate, a German firm that manufacen-US-en-US tures ophthalmic diagnostic products and en-US already has a Port St. Lucie operation with 32 en-US existing employees. The firm wants to en-US expand its U.S. operations, and is also being en-US wooed by Seattle, Houston and Minneapolis en-US to be the base for the new factory. Both the en-US city and the county are offering the same en-US incentives offered to Accel in hopes of winen-US-en-US ning out over the competition.en-US The company will invest $6.9 million in en-US the equipment and construction of a en-US 50,000-square-foot manufacturing and disen-US-en-US tribution facility, he said. Oculus will create en-US 50 new jobs over a three-year period with an en-US average wage of $43,000 plus benefits. Again, en-US the incentive package thats recommended is en-US the impact fee mitigation, as well as an ad en-US valoram tax exemption and expedited plan en-US review and permitting.en-US Mr. Tesch further described the company, en-US a family operation that has one other U.S. en-US facility in Washington State and serves global en-US markets in 80 countries. If Oculus chooses to en-US remain in Port St. Lucie, the new construcen-US -en-US tion in Tradition would also have a signifien-US -en-US cant economic impact on the region.en-US With a one-time output of $8.8 million en-US and total output as a result of new construcen-US -en-US tion of that state-of-the-art facility, both en-US direct and indirect would create 69 jobs en-US during that construction period, he said. en-US Elijah mentioned that there are 50 high-en-US wage, high-skilled jobs, but in both indirect en-US and the induced effect, its anticipated that en-US 143 jobs will be created as a result of the en-US Oculus expansion. This will create $34 milen-US -en-US lion into the annual output going into the en-US economy and showing the strong economic en-USimpact that a medical device manufacturer en-US would have on our community. en-US Oculus quality assurance and regulatory en-US affairs manager in Port St. Lucie, Ross en-US McDonough, insisted the companys first en-US choice would be to remain in St. Lucie Counen-US -en-US ty.en-US Were happy to be here, we want to stay en-US here and we want to grow our business here, en-US he said. And this experience has shown us en-US there is a lot of help for us here.en-US Port St. Lucie City Councilwoman Jolien en-US Carballo said if the two expansions come to en-US fruition it will help her counter the argument en-US that Port St. Lucie is primarily home to en-US low-paying jobs. en-US One thing thats important to note with en-US these companies is that A, theyre different, en-US but B, is the income that they bring in for the en-US individuals being employed, she said. en-US en-US The first one [Accel] provided 127 percent en-US over average annual income and this one en-US [Oculus] provides over a 115 percent over en-US average annual income in St. Lucie County. en-US While Im a supporter of retail restaurants en-US and small jobs, we do see comments occaen-US -en-US sionally that talk about the different levels of en-US jobs in Port St. Lucie and that Port St. Lucie en-US doesnt have diverse jobs with diverse wages; en-US with companies like Oculus [and Accel], I en-US can counter that. en-US For his part, Mayor Gregory Oravec en-US expressed elation about new projects potenen-US -en-US tially locating in the Jobs Corridor that the en-US city officially took over from the Tradition en-US Land Company in March.en-US We have amazing amenities in this locaen-US -en-US tion where theres four running miles along en-US I-95 between two fully developed interen-US -en-US changes, he gushed. We have something en-US special, which will be made more special by en-US partners like you. Its great when we have en-US leaders in their industry whether it be City en-US Electric or Accel, or an Oculus where theyre en-US here and are part of Port St. Lucie and they en-US are growing. I think were demonstrating en-US economic development done right, and I en-US think its a very exciting time for the City of en-US Port St. Lucie.en-US The City Council unanimously approved en-US both incentive packages July 23, followed by en-US the unanimous vote on both packages by the en-US County Commission July 24. en-USIndustiresen-USFrom page 1

LUCIE COUNTY -The St. Lucie en-USCounty School District saw its overall rating en-US rise 38 points this last school year from the en-US 2016-17 school year, soared 10 spots to en-US number 22 in the state and earned a top-en-US third district ranking state-wide.en-US Now only 1.5 percent from seeing an A on en-US its report card, St. Lucie Public Schools en-US earned Second Place in the state for improveen-US -en-US ment over the last school year among disen-US -en-US tricts with more than 20,000 students. en-US Superintendent E. Wayne Gent credited en-US both students and staff for the significant en-US grade increase. en-US In an extremely challenging year, our en-US teachers and administrators were able to en-US keep the focus on teaching and learning in en-US order to achieve these historic accomplishen-US-en-US ments, he said.en-US St. Lucie County now boasts eight A en-US schools including the five that held onto en-US their honor roll status: Fairlawn Elementary, en-US Lincoln Park Academy, Mosaic Digital en-US Academy Upper School, Palm Pointe Educaen-US -en-US tional Research School at Tradition and en-US Westgate K-8. The three newest members of en-US the group are Mosaic Digital Academy en-US Lower School, Morningside Elementary and en-US St. Lucie West K-8. Five schools also earned en-US a letter grade increase: Fort Pierce Central, en-US Savanna Ridge Elementary, White City Eleen-US-en-US mentary and Allapattah Flats K-8 all rose en-US from a C to a B, while Samuel Gaines Acadeen-US-en-US my saw its grade rise from a D to a C. en-US Two schools also demonstrated a dramaten-US-en-US ic rise of two grade points: Morningside Eleen-US -en-US mentary jumped from a C to a B, while en-US Weatherbee Elementary, soared from a D to en-US a B, less than two points from an A. Mornen-US -en-US ingside Elementary Principal Kathleen Melen-US -en-US rose said she and her staff couldnt wait for en-US official District notification of grades but en-US instead did their own calculations the day en-US the state released official scores for each en-US school.en-US As soon as scores were released on June en-US 14, our school-based team began calculating en-US our school grade immediately, she said. We en-US manually calculated each cell, and as we en-US finalized the calculation in each category, we en-US knew the A was within reach. Upon final en-US overall calculation and earning the points en-US for the A, we cheered, hugged, and literally en-US cried tears of joy!en-US Although Morningside Elementary staff en-US placed a significant emphasis on the subjects en-US of reading and math and provided additionen-US-en-US al tutoring for any students struggling in en-US those areas, Ms. Melrose attributed the camen-US-en-US pus successful grade increase to its focus on en-US a Single-School Culture that won stuen-US -en-US dent-buy in to the effort.en-US We began with the development of en-US shared norms, beliefs, values, and goals in en-US the area of academics, data, behavior and clien-US -en-US mate, she said. Throughout the year we en-US agreed upon processes and procedures that en-US produced consistency in practice. One straten-US -en-US egy in particular that was extremely poweren-US -en-US ful in driving our single school culture was en-US student goal-setting and data-tracking. en-US Every student on our campus set individual en-US goals, determined an action plan to achieve en-US their goals and tracked their progress en-US throughout the year.en-US Weatherbee Elementary Principal Kimen-US-en-US berly Cain emphasized that schools focus on en-US fostering positive relationships between en-USSt. Lucie schools en-US improve report carden-USSeven schools raise grades en-US and district overall rating en-US rises 38 pointsen-USBy Donald Rodrigueen-USFor Hometown News See en-US en-US GRADESen-US page 12

en-US 12 en-USTREASURE COAST School-related en-US stress is common among multi-tasking stuen-US -en-US dents. But smart organization can make it en-US easier to dash from class to study hall to en-US after-school activities. It all starts with the en-US right supplies. Gear up for a successful, low-en-US stress school year with these handy tips.en-US Cen-USonsult the Listen-US Give your students the tools theyll need en-US to hit the ground running, and alleviate en-US their stress of being unprepared, by referen-US -en-US encing the supply list the school sends en-US home. Then spend some time before the en-US first day of school doing something fun en-US together thats also educational, like visiting en-US a museum or reading books. This will get en-US brains active and alert before the first bell en-US rings, ensuring a smooth transition to classen-US-en-US room learning.en-US Work Smarteen-USren-US A lot of information is thrown at students en-US during a lesson, but even the quickest noteen-US -en-US taker can run into trouble sorting it all out en-US when it comes time to study. The right en-US school supplies will allow students to learn en-US in a meaningful way.en-US New alternatives to traditional notetaking en-US can make finding relevant information a en-US cinch during study sessions. For example, en-US the Five Star College Ruled Interactive Noteen-US-en-US book includes a table of contents with a spot en-US for the date, topic descriptions and page en-US numbers to help students quickly find speen-US-en-US cific information. Side margins and page en-US number blocks allow for page customization en-US and organization, while the grid ruled quick en-US reference guide is a handy tool for periodic en-US tables, multiplication tables and a glossary en-US of terms. Students can stress less with orgaen-US-en-US nizational tools such as these.en-US Likewise, the Five Star Flex Hybrid en-US NoteBinder, which acts like a notebook and en-US works like a binder, is adaptable to meet the en-US needs of all types of learners. On the inside, en-US pocket dividers provide built-in organizaen-US -en-US tion and paper storage to which students en-US can add paper and dividers as needed.en-US Reduce Your Haulen-US Its practical to maintain two sets of ceren-US -en-US tain school supplies -one for a students en-US home workstation and the other in his or en-US her locker. Pens, pencils, erasers, highlighten-US -en-US ers, extra paper, sticky notes and rulers are en-US great examples of supplies to store in both en-US places. Doing so will save students the stress en-US of remembering everything before leaving en-US for school or home and can also reduce en-US some weight in heavy backpacks.en-US Seek Durabilityen-US Stuffed into backpacks, stored at the boten-US-en-US tom of lockers, and shuttled between school en-US and home, school supplies take a beating. en-US This can mean ripping and even losing en-US important papers. Seek out items durable en-US enough to store materials for multiple classen-US-en-US rooms and functional enough to withstand en-US multiple locker visits, such as the Five Star en-US 3-Inch Binder with Removable Padded en-US Case. It comes with an expanding file for en-US quick access to papers and a padded pouch en-US for storing tech gear. Double the strength of en-US competition, Five Star College Ruled Reinen-US-en-US forced Filler Paper is a must-have for schoolen-US -en-US work and pairs well with binders.en-US Five Star aims to be an ally and champion en-US for students looking for creative and expresen-US-en-US sive ways to manage the stress of their daily en-US routines. More tips to reduce school-related en-US stress can be found at strengthenotstress.en-US com or join the conversation using en-US #StrengthNotStress.en-US Stress is a common challenge for stuen-US-en-US dents, says Jessica Hodges, vice president of en-US marketing at ACCO Brands, which builds en-US school supplies based on evolving student en-US needs. Knowing you can channel stress into en-US something more positive is empowering.en-US Story courtesy of StatePointen-USHelp students get organizeden-USFor Hometown Newsen-USnewsfp@hometownnewsol.com en-USTREASURE COAST With each new en-US school year comes a brand-new set of en-US subjects, books and teachers. It also means en-US new technologies being introduced into the en-US classroom.en-US As students head back to school, here is a en-US look at the technologies that will support en-US STEAM (science, technology, engineering, en-US arts and math) learning this year.en-US Digital Art: Enter some art classes today en-US and you may nd a dearth of paints, en-US brushes and charcoal. Today, art students en-US can learn the same painting, drawing and en-US sculpting techniques they previously would en-US have learned using traditional supplies, en-US only with digital tools instead. While the en-US traditional mediums arent completely en-US going away any time soon, todays students en-US can benet from the versatility that en-US cutting-edge tools supply, from the time a en-US project idea is conceived through when the en-US nished product is shared with the world.en-US Visual Science: Whether its an anatomical en-US diagram of the human heart or a map of en-US the Milky Way, every science teacher knows en-US that a pictures worth a thousand words, en-US particularly when its a sharp, clear picture. en-US Teachers and students are benetting en-US from top of the line projection technology en-US in classrooms. e LampFree Projectors en-US from Casios Core Series, for example, en-US have the ability to project images and en-US video wirelessly from smart phones, laptop en-US computers and tablets, expanding teachers en-US ability to create engaging lesson plans. en-US Additionally, the mercury-free Laser and en-US LED hybrid light source is energy-ecient, en-US reducing power consumption by up to 40 en-US percent, a bonus lesson in environmental en-US stewardship.en-US Accessible Computer Science: Certain en-US innovations are helping students go en-US beyond just consuming technology. Apps en-US abound for independent learners, as well en-US as educators, to use in their classrooms to en-US help computer science students of all ages en-US and abilities to hone their coding skills. en-US From straight-forward instructional apps en-US to those that gamify the learning process, en-US young coders-in-training have a wealth of en-US resources at their ngertips.en-US Intuitive Music: New en-US technology is rocking the en-US music education boat in an en-US eort to make learning an en-US instrument more intuitive. en-US For example, Casios LK-265 en-US is outtted with such tools as en-US a Key Lighting System, Voice en-US Fingering Guide and Step-en-US up Lesson System, enabling en-US beginners to learn built-in en-US songs at their own pace. en-US Additionally, an LCD display en-US makes mastering music en-US notation and correct hand en-US positioning easy. Students en-US dont even have to wait for teacher feedback en-US -the keyboards have a Scoring System that en-US evaluates performance.en-US In-Depth Math: Todays students are en-US getting a closer look at the inner workings en-US of mathematics than their predecessors, en-US thanks to new graphing calculators, such en-US as the fx-CG50 PRIZM and fx-CG500, en-US which oer expanded features, including en-US the ability to easily draw three dimensional en-US graphs such as planes, cylinders and en-US spheres, and view them from various angles en-US to better analyze their shapes. A cross-en-US section option and special zoom function en-US allow students to closely examine graphs en-US for in-depth analysis and an improved en-US catalog function means students can use en-US commands more easily and quickly.en-US As rapidly emerging technologies innovate en-US education, its an exciting time to be a en-US student or teacher.en-US Story courtesy of StatePointen-USNew technologies will support STEAMen-USFor Hometown Newsen-USnewsfp@hometownnewsol.comen-USstaff, students, and families and encouraging en-US a growth mindset. She also enumerated seven-US -en-US eral strategies employed this year to help en-US bring the school grade up. en-US Teachers moved toward student-cenen-US -en-US tered classrooms where students are encouren-US -en-US aged to talk about their learning in cooperaen-US-en-US tive group settings in a safe, supportive en-US atmosphere that encourages risk-taking, en-US she said. Teachers monitored students en-US understanding of the standards on a daily en-US basis and provided small group and individen-US -en-US ualized support ensuring every student was en-US learning successfully.en-US Ms. Cain also credited the significant en-US increase in Weatherbee Elementarys grade en-US to her staffs efforts to engage students in en-US their own learning and progress.en-US Teachers worked with their students seten-US -en-US ting goals, sharing performance results from en-US tests, and examining examples of class en-US work, she added. Students kept up with en-US their own progress using portfolios they en-US shared with parents, families and other caren-US -en-US ing adults during student-led conferences en-US held twice during the year. Students were en-US able to talk about what they learned and to en-US share their accomplishments.`en-US Mr Gent believes the historic gains en-US made during this last school year comes en-US from a laser focus on each students learning.en-US Helping us make the surge from last en-US years rank at 32 is the concentration on en-US every child, every day, he explained. Our en-US teachers, administrators and staff recognize en-USthe importance of knowing the story behind en-US every child in their classroom so they can en-US adjust instructional strategies, provide supen-US-en-US port as needed and challenge students to en-US achieve their very best. Morningside Eleen-US-en-US mentary and Weatherbee Elementary have en-US definitely embraced this and the results are en-US outstanding. en-USGradesen-USFrom page 9 Photo courtesy of Monkey Business/stock.Adobe.com

en-US 15 en-USTen-UShere is a saying in business that its all en-US about the location. Location, en-US location, location. For golf courses, en-US that saying holds quite true. Some courses en-US are right against the ocean or the river. en-US Others find a great spot with wetlands and en-US rolling hills. en-US Not every course is privileged to have a en-US perfect setting on which to be built. It then en-US becomes the job of the architect to make en-US those hills, and beautiful lakes and more to en-US give the course a natural feel. What some of en-US these courses miss out on by not being all en-US the way over, tucked on the ocean, they en-US instead have a different benefit. They are en-US right off the interstate and an easy trip for en-US golfers from all around the area.en-US Viera East Golf Club is one of these. en-US Here, world renowned architect Joe Lee, en-US designed a fantastic layout. While the en-US course is just off I-95, north of Melbourne, en-US it is close enough to the Atlantic Ocean, en-US Indian River and Banana River to enjoy a en-US refreshing tropical breeze.en-US When you toss in the wildlife that calls en-US the area home, you are just as likely to see en-US bobcat, deer, fox, or even a bald eagle, as en-US you are a birdie on your scorecard. en-US The course has a first-class practice en-US facility. Perfect for honing your game en-US between rounds or properly warming up en-US for your round. Additionally, the course is en-US an authorized fitting center for Titleist, en-US Taylor Made and Ping. If you want to see en-US the difference a properly fit set of clubs can en-US make to your game, this is the place to start.en-US Featuring six sets of tees, there is no en-US reason for any golfer to not find a length en-US that suits his or her game or mood for the en-US day. Measuring just under 6,700yards en-US from the very back tees, Viera East is not en-US long. A course that doesnt have length as a en-US defense, usually finds it elsewhere. They en-US pinch in the fairways, put lakes and ponds en-US in front of everything, make the bunkers en-US diabolical, and the greens nearly impossien-US -en-US ble. Not so here. en-US Viera East was designed not to beat you en-US up, but still challenge your game. Joe Lee en-US does a tremendous job of designing a en-US course for the recreational or resort golfer. en-US Pick the proper set of tees, and you will en-US have a great time. The fairways are en-US generous. While there is a lot of water to en-US assist with drainage, it truly only comes en-US into play on about six holes.en-US The greens and fairways are in fantastic en-US shape. They had recently been punched and en-US are coming in nicely. A couple more weeks en-US and this course will be perfect. I found the en-US course to offer a nice variety of holes. Too en-US often we see the cookie-cutter design of one en-US hole after another looking much like the en-US previous with just a small tweak here and en-US there. en-US The courses signature hole is probably en-US the 14th. This somewhat short par-5, is en-US reachable in two with a good drive. The en-US problem is, the green sits on its own little en-US island. You may not see it from the fairway, en-US but there is room right of the green and en-US between the water and the bunker guarding en-US the right side. Its a fun hole that temps you en-US at just the right time in your round. It could en-US make or break you.en-US My favorite hole on the course is the en-US par-4 17th. Measuring just 345 yards from en-US the very tips, this hole may be played in en-US several ways. Beware, short does not mean en-US easy. The hole is littered with bunkers that en-US will grab a poor tee shot, or almost any en-US approach missing the green.en-US I have heard great things about Divots en-US Grille and it did not disappoint. The staff en-US was very pleasant and friendly, the drinks en-US cold, and the food delicious, all at prices en-US that wont break your wallet. It was the en-US cherry atop the sundae after a fun day of en-US golf.en-US To find out more about Viera East Golf en-US Club, make a tee time, or check on specials, en-US visit en-US www.VieraGolf.comen-US or call 321-639-en-US 6500en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.
