I am a Florida native who grew up on en-US the Treasure Coast, and our district is my en-US home to this day. My family goes back several en-US generations as pioneers of Old Florida. My en-US grandfather was stationed at Camp Blanding en-US where he met my grandmother in St. Augusen-US -en-US tine. All of my great uncles also served in en-US World War II from Florida. My uncle Julian en-US Pfaff retired as a colonel with the Florida en-US National Guard.en-US My mother served as a postulant nun and en-US then a novitiate as a Sister of Saint Joseph at en-US the Saint Joseph College of Florida (where the en-US Tuckaho Mansion now sits). She left the novien-US -en-US tiate before making final vows. My Aunt en-US Marie Nader is a Florida fashion icon and en-US was a legendary designer during Floridas en-US glamour age and continued all the way en-US through her retirement when she sold her en-US exclusive dress shop, the Amavon on King en-US Street in St. Augustine, now the site of the en-US Casa Monica Hotel. She just celebrated her en-US 103rd birthday.en-US What are your professional qualificaen-US -en-US tions?en-US I served in the U.S. military as an infantryen-US -en-US man for four years and in the U.S. Special en-US Forces for two years. I put myself through colen-US -en-US lege with the GI Bill and worked as a police en-US officer and later a special investigator at the en-US federal level.en-US After college I worked as a phone rep in the en-US financial industry, leaving eight years later as en-US an assistant vice-president and banking offien-US-en-US cer for Fortune 500 banks to start my current en-US businesses in insurance and real estate investen-US -en-US ing.en-US I am licensed as an all-lines insurance en-US adjuster in 15 states and can also operate en-US under an umbrella license of various insuren-US -en-US ance companies and firms. I perform insuren-US -en-US ance and damage assessments for everything en-US ranging from residential and commercial en-US buildings, to vehicles, crops, boats, aircraft, en-US and catastrophe and ecological disasters. 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 I am very concerned about the problems en-US that have continued in the area for decades, en-US despite fly by night politicians who move to en-US the area to run for office and then leave after en-US being replaced. Neither Democrats nor en-US Republicans have sufficiently addressed the en-US toxic algae dumps which have turned the en-US waterways black, killing fish, birds, dozens of en-US manatees and damaging fragile ecosystems in en-US our estuaries. I am also concerned with the en-US toll illegal immigration has had on the state, en-US in particular working wages and deaths on en-US our roadways caused by illegal immigrants. en-USMark Freemanen-USWhat is your full en-US name and age?en-US en-US Mark Freeman, 69 en-US years old. en-US Where do you en-US reside? en-US Stuart, Fla. en-US Do you have famien-US -en-US ly ties locally? en-US Yes, my daughter en-US and her family. en-US What are your professional qualificaen-US -en-US tions? en-US Experienced doctor and businessman. 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 blue green algae is the most pressing en-US issue. We should watch closely what they are en-US doing in Lee county, and perhaps replicate en-US their strategy, including vacuuming the top en-US layer of algae. en-USBrian Masten-USWhat is your full en-US name and age? en-US Brian Mast, 38 en-US en-US Where do you en-US reside? en-US Palm Cityen-US Do you have famen-US-en-US ily ties locally?en-US en-US My wife Brianna en-USand children Magen-US-en-US num, Maverick and Madalyn en-US What are your professional qualificaen-US -en-US tions? en-US I currently represent the 18th District of en-US Florida in Congress. Prior to my time in Conen-US -en-US gress, I served in the Army for more than 12 en-US years, including working under the elite Joint en-US Special Operations Command as a bomb disen-US -en-US posal expert. After I was injured in combat, I en-US remained on active duty and provided experen-US -en-US tise to the National Nuclear Security Adminen-US -en-US istration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco en-US and Firearms.

We are still at en-US this point in the year spending at about a 57 en-US percent rate. We are really doing our best to en-US spend, but we also dont want to be frivolous en-US about the way were spending our money en-US either.en-US As far as the cost-of-living raise, Utilities en-US Director John Tompeck emphasized the en-US total 4 percent increase would only apply to en-US those who qualified for an incentive. en-US The 2.5 percent is across the board and en-US were going to try to institute a merit-based en-US system with a maximum of 1.5 percent, he en-US said. en-US His explanations failed to satisfy Comen-US -en-US missioner Sessions, who concurred with en-US Commissioner Johnsons objections, maken-US -en-US ing a motion early on in the discussion to en-US reject the entire budget after City Manager en-US Nick Mimms assured him regular city en-US employees would only receive a 3 percent en-US raise in 2019.en-US I think there is some more room to cut en-US the fat off, Commissioner Sessions said. In en-US light of the anticipation of a rate increase en-US this year with the contingency [capital fund] en-US being $27 million, whats being proposed en-US will only account for about 49 percent of en-US that. With the $500,000 thats in the reserve, en-US I just feel like the Utilities Authority needs en-US to go back and re-look at this.en-US Commissioner Johnson subsequently en-US seconded the motion but rescinded it after en-US City Attorney James Messer read from the en-US citys charter, explaining that the objection en-US needed to be more specific and would en-US require a super majority to pass. en-US It has to be pursuant to a specific line en-US item that would require a four-fifths vote of en-US the City Commission, he said. en-US Commissioner Johnson subsequently en-US made a motion to cap the cost-of-living en-US raise at 3 percent, which was seconded by en-US Commissioner Sessions and led to a discusen-US -en-US sion launched by Commissioner Thomas en-US Perona on the reasons for the increase. en-US Reliability is having the proper staffing, en-US especially the people that are pushing the en-US buttons and pulling the levers for safe and en-US reliable utilities, the latter said. Have we en-US had issues with turn over the last couple of en-US years for key positions?en-US Mr. Tompeck said the FPUAs need to en-US attract good workers had more to do with en-US the looming retirement of some of its en-US employees.en-US Were an aging workforce, he said. Utilen-US -en-US ity is a little bit different in terms of the talen-US -en-US ent pool that youre looking at and the abilien-US-en-US ty to convince that talent pool to come and en-US work for you. en-US Mayor Linda Hudson said the issue was en-US also compounded by the ease of commuting en-US to nearby utilities that pay more money.en-US We had comparisons with other utilities en-US because its very easy in the utility world to en-US go live in Vero Beach and work in Kissimen-US-en-US mee or live in Vero Beach and work in Fort en-US Pierce, she said. We did a study of the en-US comparisons in order to try and retain some en-US of our employees and also to attract [new] en-US employees. That was part of the consultants en-US compensation study done last year. en-US For her part, Ms. Penick said the percenten-US -en-US age change reflected in Commissioner en-US Johnsons motion would only have a minien-US -en-US mal impact on the $108 million budget.en-US That would reduce the budget by en-US $149,000, she explained.en-US The subsequent 3-2 vote on that motion en-US failed for lack of a super majority, with en-US Commissioner Perona and Mayor Hudson en-US dissenting. en-US Commissioner Johnson then made a secen-US-en-US ond motion to cut the projected capital en-US spending from $27,366,622 to $25 million en-US in the proposed 2019 budget.en-US Lets cut back on what were trying to do, en-US he said. I understand it, I appreciate it, but I en-US just think we need to be conservative and en-US tight with what were spending.en-US Commissioner Sessions also seconded en-US the motion, which like the previous one en-US failed for a lack of a super majority, with en-US Commissioner Rufus Alexander and Mayor en-US Hudson dissenting. Commissioner Perona en-US then made a motion to pass the balance of en-US the budget, with Mayor Hudson passing the en-US gavel to Commissioner Johnson in order to en-US second it. That motion failed 2-3, with en-US Commissioners Alexander, Johnson and en-US Sessions dissenting. en-US City Clerk Linda Cox confirmed Aug. 11 en-US the proposed FPUA budget would automaten-US -en-US ically be approved after 30 days in spite of en-US the City Commissions failure to approve it. en-USFPUAen-USFrom page 1 en-USprovided.en-US Please RSVP to Andrea call en-US (772) 467-1600 or en-US abeam@teamorca.org.en-USMONDAY, AUG. 27en-US en-US League of Women Voters of St. Lucie en-US County general meeting:en-US 6 p.m., Friendly's, en-US 230 N.W.

First I'll help you en-US teach many of our drivers to either slow en-US down, obey the speed limit and refer to tge en-US state laws or take a refresher course. In 14 en-US years I've lost count of near misses because en-US of improper driving (too fast, too sliw, no en-US turn signal, going thru red lights and stop en-US signs). en-US Wake up folks, you're at risk as well. en-US A couple of years ago I had a near fatal en-US accident because the driver felt that she had en-US to turn now because she was running late. en-US She thought that she could make make it. en-US Guess what she was late now.en-US For those that like to earn discounts and en-US to save your life and life of others there's a en-US refresher course you can take online. It's en-US worth it and trust me you will learn a few en-US things and be glad that you did. Afterall en-US safety first.en-USVotingen-USWith all the television advertisements and en-US mailers, its hard to know who to believe en-US when it comes to voting. If there is no record en-US to look at, you must educate yourself by en-US looking at the background of the candidate. en-US Sometimes it is easy to understand WHY a en-US person would want to go through the proen-US -en-US cess of an election where their personal life en-US becomes a part of public record. Public seren-US -en-US vants who choose to run are few and far en-US between. Usually, unfortunately, there is a en-US motive behind their desire to serve the puben-US -en-US lic. But there are those willing to put forth en-US the effort to represent you. en-US You can follow the money and sometimes en-US that will help you understand who is behind en-US a candidate and whether that is a factor for en-US your vote. Street signs also catch your eye en-US but are not a good idea to choose a candien-US -en-US date. Whatever your passion is, whether it en-US be to clean up our waterways, better schools, en-US limiting taxes or the future of social security, en-US educate yourself before you go to vote, fill in en-US your sample ballot and check on those you en-US are not sure of by asking questions. Your en-US vote determines everyone's future!en-USSavings bondsen-USI just redeemed a $100 savings bond I en-US bought in 1989. I earned $298 interest on en-US the $100. The problem is that $100 in 1989 en-US is equivalent to $203 in 2018 but they dont en-US adjust the original price for inflation. If they en-US did, they would adjust the original price to en-US $203, reducing the interest to $195. Conen-US -en-US sidering that the government has a goal of en-US promoting inflation, i.e. reducing the value en-US of your money, should they also tax the en-US interest you earn just to keep up?en-USThrow-away animals en-USThat is what our cats and kittens have en-US become. So often when someone moves en-US away they leave their cat behind, in the en-US house or outside, to fend for themselves. We en-US find them under dumpsters, in empty lots, en-US and often wandering around neighboren-US -en-US hoods looking for someone to feed them. en-US Here is a news flash...cats are not self-suffien-US -en-US cient. They rely on their humans to feed en-US them and give them love and attention. en-US They are much safer inside than out, and if en-US abandoned outside will survive as best they en-US can by eating garbage, rats, mice, and gecken-US -en-US os, all of which can make them very sick. en-US Abandoned cats who wander neighboren-US -en-US hoods looking for someone to take care of en-US them often face people who chase them en-US away or worse. Add to that the possibility en-US that they are not fixed, and we wind up with en-US kittens born outside and even more unwanten-US -en-US ed cats. en-US Yes, we have gotten a little better with en-US spay and rescue programs, as well as trap/en-US fix/release programs, BUT, shelters need our en-US help. They need volunteers. Shelters rely en-US heavily on volunteers and donations to stay en-US up and running. Donations such as food en-US and cat litter are always needed, but volunen-US-en-US teers to help scoop out litter boxes, and nuren-US -en-US ture and spend time with the animals are en-US also crucial. en-US Foster families are also needed. Fostering en-US an animal to get them out of the shelters and en-US into home environments, ready for adopen-US -en-US tion, is a great alternative to permanent en-US adoption if you are not quite ready for the en-US commitment of adoption. You might think, en-US "How can I take an adorable cat or kitten en-US into my house and then give them up?" I do en-US it by thinking of myself as their granden-US -en-US mother. I love them and take care of them en-US and then hand them over to their forever en-US home, knowing I helped prepare them to be en-USthere. en-US Have you considered making volunteeren-US -en-US ing at Dogs and Cats Forever or another en-US no-kill shelter such as Domino's House in en-US Palm City a family activity for you and your en-US kids? Are you retired? If so, perhaps you en-US have a few hours a week to dedicate to volen-US -en-US unteering? How about church or school en-US community service projects for teenagers en-US over 15? Animal therapy is good for the en-US soul, and the animals will benefit from the en-US attention more than you know. It is a win-en-US win situation. Please consider calling the en-US shelter of your choice and asking how you en-US can help. en-US Did you know the Humane Society canen-US -en-US not turn you away if you bring them a stray en-US animal? They are state-funded and they en-US must take the animals brought to them. If en-US you are turned away, please call your county en-US commissioner and let them know. en-US Wouldn't it be nice if more people took an en-US active role in reducing the population of en-US stray and unwanted animals?en-USDrive saferen-USI would like to concur with the writer of en-US the rave concerning "Slow Drivers" in the en-US August 3, 2018 issue. I also have driven in en-US several countries and Americans are by far en-US the worst drivers, mostly because they en-US believe they know EVERYTHING when en-US they really don't. en-US For example, my major concern is when I en-US am driving in the right lane and someone en-US goes flying past me in the passing lane and en-US then IMMEDIATELY pulls over into my en-US lane TEN FEET in front of my front en-US bumper! en-US It is a terrifying and constant experience en-US on Florida's Turnpike. I am sure none of en-US these drivers know that in order to pull over en-US safely after passing, you must make sure you en-US can see BOTH of the following vehicles en-US headlights in your rear view mirror (not the en-US side mirror!) before making the move. en-US I wish we could teach drivers the rules of en-US the road and the traffic laws in such a way en-US that they would not resist learning them. en-US We would all be much safer.en-US Thank you very much.

He has lacked the ability to create en-US jobs in our community that can bring our en-US hard-working citizens out of poverty and into en-US a progressive future. My main focus as city en-US commissioner will be bringing the type of jobs en-US needed to lower our poverty levels and proen-US -en-US vide our hard-working citizens with better en-US paying jobs. Fort Pierce currently is sitting on en-US a gold mine I believe concerning our air and en-US sea ports in which our port director has en-US already stated that we will be able to bring en-US 900 new well-paying jobs to this community. I en-US fear that our current leadership has lacked en-US the foresight of preparing the workforce needen-US -en-US ed in our community for these jobs, and in en-US our current state, will lose this golden opporen-US -en-US tunity for Fort Pierce citizens. I want to work en-US with our port director in starting strong en-US apprenticeship programs onsite in Fort Pierce en-US while collaborating with IRSC in creating en-US trade and degree programs that equip and en-US certify students with the knowledge in engien-US -en-US neering, driving, and the welding of ships and en-US planes. I even want to create programs in our en-US local high schools that 11th and 12th graders en-US can pursue while still in school that would en-US certify them in special trade programs upon en-US graduation. This collective initiative with the en-US ports, college, and high schools will create an en-US influx of workers from all age ranges in our en-US community equipped with the knowledge and en-US ability to work at our seaports and airports, en-US creating the new-age industrialized Fort en-US Pierce that I want to see. en-USAlonza Watkinsen-USWhat is your full en-US name and age? en-US Alonza J. Watkins, en-US 39 years old.en-US Where do you en-US reside?en-US I reside in District en-US 1 of Fort Pierce, Fla. en-US Do you have famien-US -en-US ly ties locally?en-US I have generational ties here. My grandparen-US -en-US ents laid the foundation in the 1940s here in en-US Fort Pierce. They had six kids here, where my en-US aunties and uncles had their kids here excluden-US -en-US ing myself; my mother had me in Tallahassee. en-US My cousins had the majority of their kids en-US here. And I have a child in a Fort Pierce en-US school. en-US What are your professional qualificaen-US -en-US tions?en-US My professional qualifications started in en-US Jacksonville at my alma mater Edward en-US Waters College. This is where my interest in en-US community activism and leadership started en-US to take shape. At first I helped start and en-US became the vice-president of the EWC Crimien-US -en-US nal Justice Club. At this time I led activism on en-US campus safety and crime prevention and also en-US represented the school and club in the Jacken-US-en-US sonville ShAdCo (Sheriff Advisory Commiten-US-en-US tee). During my internship, I worked with en-US different agencies at the local, state, and feden-US -en-US eral level where transparency is a must. After en-US graduation I served on the City of Jacksonen-US-en-US ville Safety and Health Subcommittee where I en-US helped strategize improvements to social en-US issues. During this time my mentor, professor en-US and formal state legislator started to teach me en-US about politics. In 2010 I moved to Fort Pierce en-US and began working. During my employment, en-US I was quickly recognized by my superiors as a en-US leader and motivator. I moved up to trainer en-US and supervisor within months. This is when en-US my colleagues informed me that I was a great en-USleader and speaker for the people and could en-US make a big difference in the community as a en-US politician. 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 in the community is eduen-US -en-US cation or to be informed, learning, and gainen-US -en-US ing knowledge. There are many ideas I have en-US where neighborhoods can be built into comen-US -en-US munities. I would enjoy working with IRSC en-US and other agencies in creating a program en-US where we can train on a pinpoint entry level en-US career to help some citizens gain a decent en-US employment. I would also like to meet and en-US greet at different venues to inform the constiten-US -en-US uents on happenings in the area. I believe en-US education can assist in solving multiple social en-US issues we are facing today.en-USDistrict 1en-USFrom page 1 en-USDuhart en-USWatkins

Noting that en-US bobsledding was an event where equipment was espeen-US-en-US cially important, the sportscaster suggested that one en-US reason the Americans were faring poorly is that they en-US had bought their bobsleds from the very countries they en-US were competing against.en-US Now years later, Mr. Bodine and his design team en-US have built bobsleds for Olympic teams that have won en-US gold medals. Women brought home the gold in Salt en-US Lake City in 2002, and the four-man USA-1 team won en-US gold in Vancouver in 2010.

en-US 11 en-USMen-USany of us are familiar with the en-US famous golf trail that is in en-US Alabama. How many of you are en-US aware that Florida, too, has a golf trail? The en-US Florida Historic Golf Trail includes 53 golf en-US courses from the Florida Panhandle to the en-US Keys, each built between 1897 and 1949.en-US Floridas golf history is one of the oldest en-US in the nation, with a number of its earliest en-US courses being created as the development of en-US railroads and hotels came to the state.en-US The Florida Historic Golf Trail celebrates en-US this early heritage and features golf courses en-US around the state that are still accessible to en-US public play. Some of the courses have en-US retained much of their historic character, en-US while others have been tweaked or redeen-US -en-US signed.en-US One of the oldest courses on the Trail sits en-US on the southwest corner of Lake en-US Okeechobee. Clewiston Golf Club originalen-US -en-US ly was commissioned by the City of en-US Clewiston in 1928. Construction of the first en-US nine holes, designed by Stiles and Van en-US Kleek, was started in 1929 and opened fro en-US play in early 1930.en-US The course was built to answer the en-US demand from the public for a place to play en-US golf. Before the course was built, golfers en-US played a short, five-hole layout in Civic en-US Center Park in the middle of the town.en-US While the course was designed to be 18 en-US holes, the location of the second nine was en-US being used as the citys airfield and it wasnt en-US until the 1960s that the final nine was en-US completed.en-US If youve ever been around Lake en-US Okeechobee, you will know that most of the en-US land is flat. The land that Clewiston Golf en-US Club sits on was no exception. Captain F. en-US Deanne Duff was in charge of the original en-US construction and used dirt pulled from en-US water hazards to make elevated, rolling en-US greens complexes and elevated tee boxes.en-US In addition to being a great place for en-US golfers to play after work and on weekends, en-US the course became a source of income for en-US the local school children, who earned en-US money caddying and selling the balls they en-US would collect from the water hazards.en-US The course no longer has caddies, but it en-US still has water; elevated, rolling greens, and en-US now a lot of mature trees.en-US I teed it up here this past weekend and en-US had a splendid time. The course has four en-US sets of tees and plays as short as 3,837 yards en-US to as long as 6,444 yards. My group chose a en-US set that came in at just under 5,800yards en-US long.en-US You may think that to be a bit short. On a en-US couple holes it may have been, but more en-US often than not, we found ourselves having en-US to shape shots and work the ball around the en-US course. Every hole has a place in the fairway en-US that makes for an easier approach and it en-US isnt always the most obvious. .en-US I must tell you that you need to avoid the en-US rough. Keep the ball in the fairway or you en-US just may find a lie that you will not like. The en-US ball seems to like to sit down in the rough en-US and there were times when my club simply en-US didnt want to cut through it. en-US The greens are very different than what I en-US am used to. They sit like large bowls with en-US plenty of break to them. If you miss, you en-US will likely be chipping to a surface that you en-US cannot see. The speed of the greens was not en-US lightning fast, but that was namely because en-US of the rain the course has seen. Besides, I en-US would hate to have a downhill putt on these en-US greens if they were much faster. en-US While the par-5s are not long by any en-US measure, they do require an exact approach, en-US especially if you plan to get on the green in en-US two.en-US My favorite hole on the course is No. 12. en-US This par-4 requires a slight fad off the tee en-US and your approach is to a green guarded by en-US water right and a bunker left. Its one of the en-US more tricky greens on the course as well.en-US Clewiston Golf Course is easy to walk, en-US you wont find a building, other than the en-US clubhouse, any where on the course, and en-US your round will remind you of days gone by. en-US If you are lucky, you may just run into one en-US of the citys retired mayors who works at the en-US course. He en-US may even en-US treat you to a en-US few great en-US stories about en-US the town and en-US its history. en-US My day was a en-US most en-US wonderful en-US experience.en-US For more en-US information, en-US call the en-US course at en-US (863) en-US 983-1448 or en-US visit en-US www.en-US clewiston-fl.goven-US or the Florida Historic Golf en-US Trail at en-US www.floridahistoricgolftrail.comen-US en-US James Stammer hosts the Thursday Night en-US Golf Show on WSTU 1450-AM.
