3 en-USFORT PIERCE -Joanne Augusto has a en-US passion for the natural foods lifestyle. en-US For more than 35 years, shes been helping en-US herself and others make healthier choices en-US when it comes to foods, supplements and en-US alternative treatment therapies. Today youll en-US find her manning the post shes watched en-US over for the past 15 years as the owner of en-US Joannes Nutrition World located in the hisen-US -en-US toric Arcade Building in Downtown Fort en-US Pierce. en-US Ms. Augusto began her natural lifestyle en-US journey many years ago at a small health en-US food store in New York, where she began to en-US sense her true calling to help people discover en-US their own potential for health and happiness. en-US She subsequently studied macrobiotics in en-US the early 1980s and began to fully compreen-US -en-US hend the correlation between diet and en-US health. After relocating to Florida 30 years en-US ago, she began visiting natural food stores as en-US a sales rep for a nutrition line and met up en-US with David Cohen in Fort Pierce, the origien-US -en-US nal owner of what was then simply known as en-US Nutrition World.en-US I entered his office one day being very en-US upset that I had to leave my newborn son en-US home alone with a babysitter all the time, en-US and I wished that there was some way I en-US could own a store and bring my child along, en-US she said. Then, he suggested I buy his store.en-US And the rest is local natural foods history. en-US In the ensuing decade and a half, Joannes en-US Nutrition World has gone through two locaen-US -en-US tion changes as the owner transformed the en-US business to meet the modern nutritional en-US needs of the local community. In her first en-US Downtown Fort Pierce location she even en-US offered massage and acupuncture services en-US but then decided to downsize even further en-US and relocate to her very quaint and smaller en-US space in the Arcade building, which she en-US says shell never leave. She still carries a full en-US line of vitamins and supplements -includen-US -en-US ing the Terry Naturally and Garden of Life en-US brands -but has since added three lines of en-US cannabisor hemp-oil based products to en-US help satisfy the growing demand for this en-US non-hallucinogenic pain remedy. Ms. en-US Augusto admits dragging her feet on the en-US decision in order to ensure her customers en-US had access to the most effective products on en-US the market.en-US After being in the business for 35 years, en-US this category was the most difficult decision en-US for me to make on which brands to carry, en-US she explained. For two years I waited before en-US I brought in CBD to make sure I was getting en-US the best quality that was available. I searched en-US for companies that had integrity, high ethics en-US and extremely natural, high quality proden-US-en-US ucts, which was very difficult to find. My en-US choices came down to Mitchells Medicinals en-US and Provida.en-US The Mitchells Medicinals line includes en-US sublingual drops, topical ointment and body en-US butter and is non-psychotropic, non-GMO, en-US free of solvents and legal in all 50 states. en-US The Provida Health company fabricates a en-US full spectrum, CO2 hemp-extract topical en-US balm thats infused with natural essential oils en-US to help relieve swelling and ease muscular en-US aches and pains. Ms. Augusto has also added en-US the very portable Innovative CBD line to the en-US mix. The company pre-fills 40mg glass caren-US -en-US tridges of organic, unrefined full plant hemp en-US oil thats extracted with only CO2 at sub-criten-US -en-US ical temperatures that is compatible with en-US most vaporizers. en-US In addition, customers can still find a en-US variety of alternative therapies at Joannes en-US Nutrition World, including two very unique en-US detoxification methods. The first is by the en-US Sunlighten company, which created a system en-US of high-tech Solocarbon Far-Infrared heaten-US -en-US ing panels that are considered the most theren-US -en-US apeutic in high concentrations. en-US Solocarbon panels are proven 95 percent en-US emissive, meaning that 95 percent of the en-US energy being produced is in the therapeutic en-US range to increase core body temperature for en-US a deep, detoxifying sweat, Ms. Augusto said. en-US This is the active ingredient that has been en-US clinically shown to lower blood pressure, aid en-US in weight loss and support detoxification.en-US The store owner described her other en-US detoxification method, the ION Foot Detox, en-US as the most unique product that I offer.en-US This service has been available for over en-US 15 years and customers love it, she en-US exclaimed. Because of their powerful en-US charge, ions cleanse the body more effectiveen-US -en-US ly than any other method of detox. The proen-US -en-US cess is safe, relaxing and non-invasive, and is en-US a great way to aid the body in its natural en-US detoxification.en-US While in the store, you can also opt for the en-US finger stick blood analysis service offered by en-US Christopher Allison, a local acupuncture en-US physician and doctor of Oriental medicine. en-US The in-depth analysis provides a compreen-US -en-US hensive snapshot of your overall health from en-US which the physician can create a step-by-en-US step program to restore health and energy en-US taking into account nutritional needs, as well en-US as hormonal, dietary and emotional tendenen-US -en-US cies. en-US I invited Christopher Alison into the en-US store about five years ago to give customers en-US an alternative option to their health choices, en-USMs. Augusto said. Customers love him, and en-US he has improved many of my customers en-US lives.en-US Ms. Augusto said she derives her satisfacen-US -en-US tion from living the healthy lifestyle and en-US helping her patrons with the knowledge she en-US has gleaned over her decades in the nutrien-US -en-US tional field.en-US The most rewarding thing for me is haven-US -en-US ing a customer come in and say that I en-US changed their life by helping them feel beten-US -en-US ter, she said.en-US Joannes Nutrition World is located in en-US Suite 121 of the Arcade Building at 101 N. en-US U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce.

4 en-USterms of the citys need to cut costs and its en-US lack of input into the business dealings of the en-US Humane Society, which is operated as a en-US 501C3 nonprofit entity. en-US I understand were just part of the whole, en-US but were trying to cut ourselves back a little en-US bit and be able to find efficiencies because en-US thats how weve had to operate, at least for en-US the last 10 years, he said. en-US The commissioner also expressed frustraen-US-en-US tion that the Humane Society had alleged in en-US one of its fundraising publications that local en-US governments pay less than half the cost of en-US caring for animals, when the city provided en-US $130,000 to the organization last year. Fort en-US Pierce shares the financial responsibility with en-US St. Lucie County, which contributed en-US $230,000 to the Society in 2019, and the City en-US of Port St. Lucie, which kicked in $152,500 en-US last year. en-US Im trying to figure out, wow, thats a great en-US deal for us but really are we being fair in our en-US assessment, he added. What made it really en-US difficult is the fact that we dont participate in en-US any of your financial decisions or your facilien-US -en-US ties decisions, so we just have to take a look en-US at it from a service perspective. Im telling en-US you I think everybody up here wants to do en-US their fair share.en-US During the previous discussion, commisen-US-en-US sioners asked staff to have Humane Society en-US representatives participate in the next discusen-US -en-US sion, so local attorneys Stephen and Mary en-US Jean Navaretta -who have served as the face en-US of the organization for years -joined the en-US most recent discussion, accompanied by en-US Director of Administration David Roberten-US -en-US son. In response to Commissioner Peronas en-US comments and questions from Commissionen-US -en-US er Jeremiah Johnson -who has opposed the en-US increase since the first discussion -Ms. en-US Navaretta, who became chair of the Humane en-US Society Board of Directors Oct. 1, claimed en-US the Society has continually operated in a en-US deficit.en-US What I would say is the $130,000 is an en-US artificially low number that never met the en-US actual costs to the Humane Society, so we en-US were operating under a deficit to subsidize en-US your jurisdiction as well as other jurisdicen-US -en-US tions, she explained. In terms of change, we en-US were able to subsidize what you and the other en-US jurisdictions should have paid for the seren-US -en-US vices we rendered because of the beneficence en-US of people, bequests and donations.en-US Ms. Navaretta then enumerated cost-cuten-US -en-US ting measures taken by the organization as en-US she took a defensive stance in response to en-US Commissioner Peronas allusion to the decien-US -en-US sion by a previous Humane Society board to en-US build the Glades Cutoff shelter in Port St. en-US Lucie. Some officials and residents have en-US referred to that decision as a costly mistake.en-US In terms of decisions weve made, our en-US CPA specifically excluded the mortgage on en-US the Port St. Lucie facility when calculating en-US the cost per animal, she said, referring to the en-US $130 charge to the city. Our general business en-US decisions have included reducing staff en-US because we couldnt pay: Weve eliminated a en-US $100,000 executive director, we have not en-US given raises and weve reduced benefits, en-US while the City of Fort Pierce gives 2.5 to 3 en-US percent annually to its staff. In terms of busien-US-en-US ness decisions, there is nothing else we can en-US cut -we need more money. en-US Commissioner Hudson peppered the trio en-US with questions about whether the Human en-US Society had hired a vet-tech as Code Complien-US -en-US ance Manager Peggy Arraiz had previously en-US suggested, since local animal rights activists en-US have complained about insufficient veterien-US -en-US narian care. en-US Do you have vets on-site or vet-techs? en-US she asked. In speaking to one veterinarian en-US recently, I asked what they thought the en-US Humane Society needed, and he thought we en-US needed more vets to be committed to the en-US Humane Society either through voluntary en-US interaction or onsite.en-US Commissioner Sessions also touched on en-US the volunteer issue during the latest meeting, en-US comparing the Humane Society volunteer en-US program to that of the Sunrise Theatre, an en-US entity the city has spent millions shoring up en-US over the last decade.en-US The volunteers at the Sunrise Theatre, en-US everybody over there is happy go lucky, with en-US no turnover rate, he said. You all have a en-US problem keeping volunteers over there, en-US whats going on?en-US Mr. Robertson, disagreed with that assessen-US -en-US ment, insisting the Humane Society has a en-US good volunteer base thats seasonally affected en-US by both the influx and departure of snowen-US -en-US birds.en-US Currently we have about 100 volunteers en-US on our role, he said. Its quite cyclical in the en-US sense that we have students that typically en-US come in at the end of the school year, and en-US theyre always panicking to get their [comen-US -en-US munity service] hours in before they graduen-US-en-US ate. Then we find a little bit of a lull just en-US before the snowbirds come in. For example, en-US right now its a little bit tight with the volunen-US -en-US teers, but I expect seven to 10 volunteers en-USreturning to the Humane Society shelters en-US and to our thrift store within the next en-US month.en-US The former chairman said the Humane en-US Society could use a volunteer coordinator en-US but unfortunately did not have the money in en-US the budget to fund the position.en-US There have been many board discussions en-US on how we could improve volunteers, Mr. en-US Navaretta added. en-US The Commission as a whole ultimately en-US decided to deny the budget increase and go en-US to a monthly rather than yearly payment to en-US the Humane Society as St. Lucie County en-US recently decided to do. They also asked the en-US organizations board of directors to consider en-US allowing local government officials to weigh en-US in on future financial decisions. No formal en-US decision was made as commissioners do not en-US vote during Conference Agendas. rfntb ntnb tn tnn n ffntnn nn tn rfntbtnn Trusted Professional Installation with Best Lifetime Warranty! r f r n $1,500 SAVINGSrfntbftbfrfr rfnnntfnfnbnfnrrrrbnn nfnnnrt bnttnnnnnfnf LAKEWOOD PARK UNITED METHODIST CHURCHInvites You To Our Fall Activities5405 Turnpike Feeder Road Fort Pierce 772-465-1187 www.lakewoodparkumc.org Trunk & Treat Sunday, October 28th (4pm 6pm) Prize for the best Trunk.

Restores voting rights en-US of Floridians with felony convictions after en-US they complete all terms of their sentence en-US including parole or probation.
