See the differences between the car in Dennys garage and yours.Food provided by Pepops Pizza Music remotes by Coast 101.3 WHLG4850 Orange Avenue Fort Pierce, FL 34947 Celebrate with Stamm en-USand FedEx Racing FORT PIERCE -Johnny Stamm is part en-US-en-US nering with FedEx racing to celebrate his en-US 50th year in local manufacturing and the en-US public is invited to the party.en-US The famed #11 FedEx Toyota Camry racen-US -en-US ing car will be on display from 11 a.m. to 3 en-US p.m. Friday, Nov. 16 at the Stamm Manufacen-US -en-US turing facility located at 4850 Orange Ave. en-US in Fort Pierce near the intersection of Jenen-US -en-US kins Road. You wont have any problem en-US finding the place: Just look for the Stamms en-US famed Scissor Lifts out front and the crowd en-US taking pictures around the car and the huge en-US #11 FedEx Hauler that ferries the vehicle en-US around the country to races and other en-US events. Mr. Stamm is anxious to get the en-US party started.en-US It will be out in my front yard, and its en-US just like going to the races, he said. You en-US can buy hats, shirts and other things, and en-US were going to have pizza and cokes.en-US No stranger to racing and racecars, Mr. en-US Stamm originally ran an automobile repair en-US shop known as Johnnys Auto & Truck en-US Repair in the 1960s and raced his own cars en-US on the side before he turned 20.en-US I had the track record at the old track off en-US of Angle Road, back to 1963, he said with en-US pride in his voice. We had two tracks here en-US -racing was big back then in Fort Pierce. en-US By the end of that decade, he had noticed en-US the need by utility companies for specialized en-US work vehicles outfitted with lift-type appaen-US -en-US ratus and launched Stamms Manufacturing en-US on July 1, 1968. Within a year he had four en-US employees and subsequently sold his first en-US Scissor Lift to the City of Miami to work on en-US traffic signals. Today he has 25 employees en-US and has continued to improve on his origien-US-en-US nal Scissor Lift design, as well as added a en-US line aerial buckets, security towers and en-US many other items. The employees also manen-US -en-US ufacture most of the truck bodies on-site en-US that will incorporate the various lift devices.en-US We buy basic bodies now and add modien-US -en-US fications for the specific type of work, Mr. en-US Stamm explained.en-US Today the companys products can be en-US found in operation around the globe in a en-US vast array of environments, ranging from en-US utility companies to schools, municipalities en-US and even Walt Disney World. Mr. Stamm en-US made his first international sale to the counen-US-en-US try of Puerto Rico, outfitting more than 300 en-US work vehicles there with lift devices after the en-US country was devastated by Hurricane Hugo. en-US In spite of its huge growth and expansion, en-US Stamm Manufacturing remains faithful to en-US its original Scissor Lift and the company en-US founder said it remains one of the firms en-US most requested items. His employees manuen-US -en-US facture up to 35 of them a year.en-US The new style is still the most popular all en-US over the USA, he said. We sell from New en-US York to California.en-US Now 73, Mr. Stamm said he does not plan en-US on retirement anytime soon and is now en-US actively expanding the security tower lift en-US line of his homegrown company. The Fort en-US Pierce companys towers can even be spoten-US-en-US ted in the parking areas around the Walt en-US Disney World Ticket and Transportation en-US Center that connects the Magic Kingdom en-US with EPCOT Center.en-US We are presently building them for en-US malls, Disney World, police departments en-US and now the military, he beamed.en-US Mr. Stamm admitted business obligations en-US keep him from attending many races nowaen-US -en-US days but said he occasionally makes it over en-US to Bristol Tenn. or more locally to Daytona en-US Beach or Homestead to watch a race. If you en-US can get by on Nov. 16, you can share his en-US enthusiasm over the #11 FedEx Toyota en-US Camry, outfitted with a racing V8 engine en-US and Direct Shift 8-speed electronically conen-US -en-US trolled automatic transmission that can also en-US be shifted manually. Truck fanatics will en-US enjoy viewing the #11 FedEx Race Transen-US -en-US porter that brought it to Stamms, a high-en-US tech 78-foot-long rig that weighs in at en-US 80,000 pounds fully loaded.en-US For more information on Stamms Manuen-US -en-US facturing, call (772) 461-6056 or visit the en-US website at www.stamm-mfg.com.

4 en-USTen-UShis week, I thought we would talk en-US about how everything in the en-US computer is connected. By connected en-US I dont mean by wires and other mechanical en-US means, but internally, through the computen-US -en-US ers filing system. en-US Often I hear people say that a particular en-US file (picture or text) is in my word en-US processor or its in my email program. en-US That implies that the file in question can be en-US accessed only with that particular program. en-US Not so. en-US Let me explain; most programs on your en-US computer are capable of opening different en-US types of files. For instance, word processors en-US such as Microsoft Word or Works Word en-US Processor are for working with text files, en-US while photo editors, such as Paint Shop Pro en-US and PhotoShop are just the thing for en-US working with pictures. en-US The files themselves are not stored within en-US the program, they are stored somewhere on en-US the hard drive, available to any program en-US capable of working with them. That means en-US you can share files often times with many en-US other programs. All you really need to en-US know is where on your hard drive the files en-US really live. en-US This is an example of a typical file name en-US complete with its path on the hard drive: en-US c:\users\owner\documents\filename.docxen-US en-US The path tells how to get to a files location en-US on the hard drive. en-US Lets take a closer look: The c:\ indicates en-US what disk drive the file is stored on. Each en-US disk drive on the computer has a letter en-US assigned to it with a: and b: reserved for en-US floppy drives (remember those?), your hard en-US drive (c:), and your CD-Rom (typically d:), en-US and so on. The drive letter is how we know en-US what drive the file we are working with en-US resides on. en-US The next part of our path, users\, is the en-US first folder or directory. Just like the manila en-US folders you use in a file cabinet keep files en-US organized, directories on your en-US computer organize your en-US computer files. Each directory is en-US separated by a back slash (\) and en-US you can have directories within en-US directories. en-US In our example, the docuen-US -en-US ments folder is in the owner en-US folder, which is in the users en-US folder, which is on the c: drive. en-US The last part of our path is the en-US actual file name. en-US A typical file name comes in en-US two parts, the name, separated en-US by a dot and the extension. The en-US name is what we call the file en-US when we saved it (a fairly en-US important thing to note when saving). And en-US the extension tells the computer what kind en-US of file it is so it knows what kind of program en-US can open it.en-US en-US Once you know the path to a particular file, en-US you can access it from most of your favorite en-US programs. en-US For instance, say you got a picture en-US e-mailed to you and you want to use that en-US picture in a letter you are writing with your en-US word processor. en-US The first step in getting the picture into en-US your letter happens when you save the en-US picture from e-mail. Make a note of the full en-US path and file name when you save it and en-US you can access it any time. en-US When you are ready to import your en-US picture, use the insert menu (typical on en-US most word processors) to load your picture. en-US When the dialogue box comes up asking en-US what file you want to insert, you can type in en-US the files full path and filename or easier yet, en-US just navigate to the file by double clicking. en-US Start in the my pc window and double en-US click the drive letter, each folder and end en-US with the file name, if typing, separate your en-US folders with back slashes and dont forget en-US the extension after the dot. Then click OK. en-US You should have your picture inserted into en-US your letter. en-US As you can see, the path and file name is en-US enormously important. So often I hear, its en-US on my hard drive, but I dont know where en-US or that file is in my word processor. If you en-US pay attention to what name and folder the en-US file is saved under when you save it, youll en-US never misplace another file. en-US Sean McCarthy fixes computers.

I see en-US this as a waste of taxpayer money. It does en-US absolutely nothing to make the public safer en-US and possibly puts at risk the life of someone en-US who has had a life failure and is back on the en-US road to being a productive citizen, spouse en-US and parent. Numerous studies have shown en-US that those on the registry are, more than en-US likely, the least to be concerned with. en-US Ninety percent of sexual assault victims en-US know their attacker. "Stranger Danger" is a en-US myth. Ninety-five percent of sexual offenses en-US are committed by someone who is not on en-US the registry. The recidivism rate for sex en-US offenders is 3.5 percent, the rate for all classen-US-en-US es of crime, is roughly 67 percent. There is en-US no scholarly study that conclusively demonen-US-en-US strates that sex offender registries make our en-US communities any safer, in fact they could en-US contribute to problems. en-US As a parent, I would be more concerned en-US about what a drug dealer might slip into my en-US child's collection bag or people who are on en-US the road so inebriated with holiday cheer en-US that I and my child might become an uninen-US -en-US tended target.en-USOlder trick or treaters en-US leave trash behinden-USMy wife and I collected a lot of trash en-US walking around one block the morning after en-US Halloween. We collected candy wrappers, en-US beer bottles, water bottles and discarded en-US masks.en-US We are happy to celebrate Halloween and en-US every year we buy and give out lots of candy. en-US The little kids in costumes are wonderful en-US and you can see how excited they are to en-US roam the neighborhood and collect candy.en-US The problem is groups of teenagers, no en-US costumes, carrying backpacks and pillow en-US slips to snag as much as they can, as fast as en-US they can. Then they tear off the wrappers en-US and leave their trash wherever it falls.en-US We had some kids that were 18 years old en-US and older. I know because they graduated en-US high school last year, and since they don't en-US bother with costumes, you know who they en-US are. These kids need to find other activities en-US rather than competing with little kids to en-US grab candy and leave trash.en-USA change in Americaen-USIt seems that we have let Make America en-US Great Again go to our head, under the curen-US -en-US rent President no longer are we the United en-US States of America, we are America; divided en-US by lying and talking out the side of our neck.en-US I think we as the Republican Party have en-US no moral or ethical values, we are using en-US common sense. Not only are the lies hurting en-US others, they have us losing respect. Now, we en-US are going to cut Social security, Medicare en-US and Medicaid because it's costing too much en-US and that's why we can't get the budget down, en-US says Mitch McConnell. Does our party en-US think we are dumb, simple and stupid?en-US I want to be a Republican Party member, en-US not an afterthought.en-USFelons and votingen-USFor anyone disappointed about the en-US amendment for the restoration voting rights en-US of felons, here are a couple of things you en-US should think about.en-US Number one, if they quit paying taxes, en-US depending on the amount, theyll be a felon en-US again. Also, they should be out of trouble for en-US a minimum amount of time after they have en-US done their time, paid their restitution or en-US whatever.en-US A person who commits a felony, especialen-US -en-US ly a violent one, is not the best of our citien-US-en-US zens. They lose the right to have firearms, to en-US vote and other things. I am all for second en-US chances, but people have to try hard to stay en-US out of trouble. en-USNo vote, no taxesen-USReading about the fourth amendment on en-US the ballot brought to mind one of the princien-US -en-US ples of our founding fathers.en-US Taxation without representation is tyranen-US -en-US ny. If you are a U.S. citizen and denied your en-US right to vote for whatever reason (age, crimen-US -en-US inal background, etc.), you should also lose en-US your obligation to pay taxes.en-USCooler roads prevailen-USWhy is it some of the roads are paved with en-US a light colored asphalt mix and others are en-US getting blacktopped?en-US Dont the roads get hot enough around en-US here? Is it that much cheaper to pave the en-US road with blacktop? We pay plenty in taxes. en-US Any little thing to cool things off here helps, en-US like shade, lighter colored roadways and en-US select clearing of shade trees during conen-US -en-US struction. What are these builders thinking en-US of, other than profit? Its time people started en-US to wake up and speak up. It is later than you en-US think, folks say something. Do something. en-US Before its all blacktopped.en-USFree the sidewalksen-USIn my neighborhood, there have been en-US three barriers for sidewalks up for over a en-US year and a I am really upset about this.

This is a reduction from en-UStheir previously approved site plan of 23 en-US units.en-US Commissioner Jeremiah Johnson, who en-US admitted a previous commissioner had sat in en-US his seat during the 2016 discussions, began to en-US pepper the planning director with questions en-US about a public kayak launch and controversial en-US bulkhead connected to the project. Ms. Groen-US -en-US hall deferred the technical aspects of those en-US topics to the applicant or his representatives en-US that evening. en-US We could call the applicant up, and I think en-US the engineer can answer that question, she en-US said. The dock was previously approved on en-US the site plan, Its been approved by the en-US Department of Environmental Protection en-US and was also part of the previous approval for en-US the Indian River Villas. en-US William Stoddard, a representative of the en-US developer with the Vero Beach-based land en-US planning and engineering firm Schulke, Bittle en-US & Stoddard, also attempted to tackle the comen-US-en-US plicated issue of the citys Bulkhead Ordien-US-en-US nance, saying it really came down to interen-US -en-US preting the language.en-US Theres no legal description, and theres no en-US bearing and distance that refers to this bulken-US -en-US head line, he said. Thats referring to the en-US existing line of vegetation, and I interpret that en-US to mean where the existing line of vegetation en-US is. You survey it, you set 25 feet and that is en-US your bulkhead line.en-US Fort Pierce attorney Dennis Corrick en-US addressed the Commission on behalf of Dr. en-US Ronald Lyman, an Indian River Drive landen-US-en-US owner opposed to the project approval and its en-US related bulkhead. Mr. Corrick insisted that en-US his law firm partner, former city attorney en-US Robert Schwerer, had warned the Commisen-US -en-US sion in 2016 not to make any decisions based en-US on interpretations of the Bulkhead Ordien-US -en-US nance.en-US I think thats the establishment of a line, en-US its not the establishment of a method for en-US determining the line, and in 1960 there was a en-US vegetation line and the city has established a en-US line that is already there, he said in dispute of en-US Mr. Stoddards interpretation. Mr. Schwerer en-US did raise the issue of the Bulkhead Ordinance en-US and said it was something that needed to be en-US investigated. Its my understanding the Comen-US -en-US mission proceeded without doing that invesen-US -en-US tigation. I believe that moving forward with en-US this project or the prior project -assuming it en-US relies on the interpretation of the Bulkhead en-US Ordinance -leaves the city open to challenge en-US this project.en-US Dr. Lyman himself addressed the Commisen-US -en-US sion, detailing what he saw as several flaws en-US with the project, ranging from the bulkhead en-US to the 28-slip marina and what he viewed as a en-US lack of parking for the project in general.. en-US Theres not enough parking for these placen-US -en-US es theyve got two-car garages and four en-US parking spaces, so people are not going to be en-US able to come to visit, he said. This marina, en-US by the way, wont have any protection -one en-US good storm and its going to be in our lap. en-US And a small HOA is not going to be able to en-US handle the cost of taking care of all that damen-US -en-US age, so it will be for us.en-US One of the project developers, Fort Pierce en-US businessman Rick Reed, disputed those alleen-US -en-US gations and emphasized that the developers en-US and not the Indian River Villas Homeowners en-US Association, would be perpetually responsien-US-en-US ble for the marina.en-US We will own the marina forever -that en-US marina belongs to us, he said. That marina en-US will be held jointly by our commercial propen-US-en-US erty on the other side. The reason why the en-US marina was allowed to be 28 units instead of en-US 12 units is its a commercial marina and it was en-US approved by the state for that so that the puben-US -en-US lic would have access. en-US Mr. Reed explained that he had convinced en-US his fellow investors to downsize the size, scale en-US and height of the original project to better fit en-US in with the surrounding structures and landen-US-en-US scapes, particularly when seeing it from the en-US top of the Citrus Avenue Bridge. He insisted en-US another Fort Pierce resident helped him to en-US see the light on the previously approved en-US monolithic structure.en-US At 65 feet, when you come over Citrus en-US Overpass, it blocks the view coming over the en-US overpass of the river, he said referring to the en-US 23-unit building and emphasizing that the en-US developers could still pull the permit and en-US begin construction on that immediately. en-US Even though the property belongs to us and en-US we go this approved, it always bothered me. en-US Having been born and raised here, somehow en-US even though its our property and I guess we en-US do own the view, I was really bothered by en-US that. We believe this is a better product, we en-US believe this will sell and we believe its a good en-US fit for that property. en-US Some residents opposed to the project en-US complained about the wall of garages facing en-US Indian River Drive, which Mr. Reed explained en-US had been incorporated to block the headen-US -en-US lights of vehicles from shining into the en-US upscale apartments at night. Ms. Grohall told en-US the Commission the garage structures were en-USalso the reason the applicants had requested en-US and needed the PD zoning instead of the en-US commercial zoning presently on the property. en-US The only part of the C-1 District they en-US werent able to meet through their developen-US-en-US ment was that front setback, she said to the en-US distance under 10 feet from Indian River en-US Drive to the eaves of the garages. That front en-US setback under the C-1 should be at 25 feet, en-US and theyre asking for consideration for their en-US accessory structures, which are the garages, en-US which dont meet the setback.en-US Members of the public expressed safety en-US concerns with increased traffic at the rounden-US -en-US about located at the foot of the Citrus Avenue en-US Bridge, a concern echoed by Mayor Linda en-US Hudson.en-US I think there are safety concerns for everyen-US -en-US body involved, including the St. Andrews en-US children and the kayakers and the people that en-US live in the new thing and the people that are en-US coming north on Indian River Drive, she en-US said. en-US In response, Ms. Grohall insisted that safeen-US -en-US ty was always at the forefront of her departen-US -en-US ments decision-making. en-US We have discussed this a couple of times, en-US most particularly not only when this was first en-US approved, but also with the St. Andrews Episen-US -en-US copal, and weve talked about making en-US improvements, she said. As the projects are en-US coming online, we can improve safety en-US through some signage, better pedestrian en-US crossings and things like that.en-US Shortly before the vote on the rezoning en-US request, Commissioner Johnson signaled his en-US opposition and couched it in environmental en-US terms related to the bulkhead extension. en-US We have very limited resources left along en-US the Indian River Lagoon that deal with living en-US shorelines, he explained. Were faced with so en-US many issues today environmentally that are en-US just challenges. To the applicants, I like the en-US project, but Im challenged with the location en-US and the conditions that we are changing. Im en-US challenged with this when were taking so en-US much of the upland area -the living shoreen-US -en-US line area.en-US For her part, Ms. Grohall once again en-US reminded the Commission that the DEP had en-US signed off on the project. en-US I know one of the things DEP looks at is en-US the impacts, and they deemed it to not have en-US any significant impacts to the shoreline, she en-US said. en-US The Commission subsequently voted 4-1 en-US to approve the rezoning request, with Comen-US -en-US missioner Johnson dissenting. en-USVillasen-USFrom page 1

12 FORT PIERCE Being a guardian on an en-USHonor Flight is one day you will remember en-US forever. If you live in Indian River Martin, en-US Palm Beach, Okeechobee and St. Lucie en-US counties, Southeast Florida Honor Flight en-US wants you to fly with them as a veteran, a en-US guardian or volunteer.en-US This all-volunteer organization makes it en-US possible for World War II, Korean and Vieten-US -en-US nam veterans to visit Washington D.C. en-US memorials for a day. SEFL Honor Flight en-US raises funds all year long for four flights a en-US year; 2019 flight dates are April 13, May, 11, en-US with September and October to be en-US announced soon.en-US Guardians are required to attend a three-en-US hour training and pay $400 for the privilege en-US of making sure the veteran has the time of en-US his or her life on this special day.en-US The day starts at 3:45 a.m. in Stuart, en-US where a busload of guardians, veterans and en-US volunteers is escorted to Palm Beach Interen-US -en-US national Airport. Along the bus route, many en-US fire stations and citizens are up early to wave en-US flags and cheer the vets on. Throughout the en-US day, police and fire escorts are on hand at en-US every stop, so the Honor Flight is not en-US stopped by one traffic signal. Honor Flights en-US visit Arlington National Cemetery, witness en-US the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of en-US the Unknown Soldier, the Air Force Memoen-US -en-US rial, and lunch usually at the Arlington en-US Knights of Columbus. The afternoon is for en-US visiting the World War II, Korean and Vieten-US -en-US nam War Memorials. Everywhere the en-US Honor Flight vets go, they are greeted with en-US appreciation, cheers and hugs. en-US Honor Flights are well organized by volen-US -en-US unteers who also travel with the veterans. en-US Wheelchairs are provided for the veterans, en-US who may not need one ordinarily, but theres en-US a great deal of walking, and guardians en-US always encourage vets to use the chairs for en-US veteran safety and comfort. There are meden-US -en-US ics, nurses, tour guides, and many other volen-US -en-US unteers who are ready to loan and unload en-US wheelchairs, and see that veterans safely exit en-US and enter the buses. en-US On the flight home, veterans receive a en-US surprise package of mail, from loved ones en-US and school children thanking them for their en-US service. The biggest surprise of all awaits en-US veterans at PBIA, where a homecoming en-US crowd is waiting to cheer, wave flags, shake en-US hands and hug veterans and guardians.en-US A recent Oct. 13 homecoming was the en-US biggest yet, and covered by WPTV, Channel en-US 5. en-US Author, photographer and professor, en-US Wendy Dwyer, who has been on numerous en-US Honor Flights, says no two flights are the en-US same because every veteran is different. en-US October 13th was Dr. Singhs 25th flight en-US and that day made it more of a celebration en-US for everyone. Shamsher Singh, M.D., a St. en-US Lucie county dermatologist, is a tireless proen-US -en-US moter and fund raiser for SEFL Honor en-US Flight.en-US St. Lucie Countys Property Appraiser, en-US Michelle Franklin, was a first-time guardian en-US October 13, and says, It was truly an emoen-US -en-US tional day and one that will forever remain a en-US cherished memory. en-US Rhonda Blakey, Director of development en-US and Public Relations for St. Andrews Episen-US -en-US copal Academy, escorted her father, World en-US WarII veteran Calvin Heathman.

Only this en-US time, three races are being affected, not just en-US one. The races to determine our next en-US Governor, Senator and Commissioner of en-US Agriculture are all too close to call. en-US Ron DeSantis leads Andrew Gillum by en-US about 35,000 votes. Rick Scott leads Bill en-US Nelson by just over 13,000 votes and Nicole en-US Fried leads Matt Caldwell by a mere 5,000 en-US votes. Each of these will eventually, or so we en-US hope, be decided when the final re-count of en-US votes is complete.en-US The craziness of thinking that our fine en-US state will once again be the butt of late night en-US jokes gave me such a headache that I dozed en-US off on the sofa and in the middle of my en-US restless sleep, I began to dream. Instead of en-US spending millions upon millions in attorney en-US fees, each fighting to get their way, the en-US candidates agreed to settle the matter like en-US people of old. The races would be settled in en-US a sporting manner, on the golf course.en-US The first problem was deciding which en-US golf course would host this competition. en-US President Donald Trump quickly stepped en-US up and invited everyone to his Trump en-US International Golf Club in West Palm en-US Beach. To say this did not go over well with en-US the Democrats, would be putting it mildly. en-US There would be no home-field advantage.en-US The six of them finally decided on a en-US course, the name and location of which en-US shall be kept secret to protect the innocent, en-US and the matches were officially on.en-US DeSantis arrived first. He headed to the en-US driving range and began pounding balls to en-US the far side of the range. Gillum arrived en-US next and decided he would start by rolling en-US in some putts on the practice green. en-US Both Scott and Nelson nearly missed en-US their 10 a.m. start. Scotts excuse involved en-US something about dumping fresh, bottled en-US water into the St. Lucie River, while Nelson en-US simply over-slept.en-US Fried and Caldwell were the last to show. en-US It appears their tractors were not equipped en-US with the latest GPS systems and they wound en-US up helping a farmer plow a field before en-US making it to the golf course. Of the six en-US competitors, this pair was, by far, the most en-US civil. en-US Of course, I was chosen to referee the en-US match. All six candidates wanted input en-US from the gallery to decide which set of tees en-US to play from. The Democrats wanted to en-US make sure that everyone would get to vote en-US and that each of those votes would be en-US counted. The Republicans agreed, but just en-US as we were about to tee off, a box of en-US uncounted votes turned up sitting next to en-US the hot dog cart by the range. We spent the en-US next hour debating whether those votes en-US were legitimate or not.en-US The event would be played under match en-US play rules. In honor of our electoral college, en-US winning the harder holes would be worth en-US more than winning the easier holes. It en-US would be the candidate who won the most en-US electoral handicap points who would en-US occupy his or her respective office. Conen-US -en-US fused? So was I, but somehow it made en-US perfect sense to the politicians.en-US At the first tee, I went through the en-US candidates bags and made sure that they en-US only had 14 clubs, had properly marked and en-US could identify their golf balls, and decided en-US who would hit first. Gillum had too many en-US clubs, and golf balls that were marked, I en-US love the FBI. en-US Predictably, Scotts golf balls were marked en-US Go Navy, and he quickly proceeded to hit en-US a couple into the lake on the first hole. en-US Oddly, he thought that since they were en-US Navy golf balls, they would like the water en-US and float. Maybe he picked up the submaen-US -en-US rine ones instead.en-US DeSantis had mysteriously replaced most en-US of his woods with rifles and other firearms. en-US After producing the proper permits and en-US promising to observe a two-hole waiting en-US period before firing them, he was allowed en-US to bring his weapons along.en-US After the seventh hole Scott and DeSantis en-US each had an early lead. Many of the Gillum en-US supporters nearly went home after DeSantis en-US made a remarkable birdie at the 15th. en-US Gillum was so shaken that he conceded the en-US match and then realized he still had a en-US chance to win due to an odd scorekeeping en-US mix up. Apparently, the scorekeepers had en-US forgotten to count all of DeSantis strokes. en-US Gillum withdrew his concession as en-US scorekeepers began a stroke re-count.en-US The same thing happened in the Scott/en-US Nelson match. Midway through the back en-US nine, Scott had what he felt was an insuren-US -en-US mountable lead and declared himself the en-US winner. Nelson was taken aback and found en-US there to be the same poor scorekeeping in en-US his match.en-US At the 18th hole, we encountered a major en-US problem, a problem that would muddle the en-US entire event. It seemed that the gallery had en-US inadvertently trampled the tee shots of each en-US of the candidates, and they were all faced en-US with a terrible lie.en-US Come to find out, some of the gallery had en-US mistakenly thought that they were tramen-US -en-US pling President Trumps ball, while the rest en-US had been told that Hillary Clinton had en-US snuck in and was playing in the event, en-US hoping to undo her loss from two years ago.en-US All the candidates stood lock-jawed in en-US the middle of the fairway, each refusing to en-US hit his or her approach shot until things en-US were resolved.en-US Just about then, darkness fell upon the en-UScourse and my alarm went off. I shook the en-US cobwebs from my head and tried to en-US convince myself that it was just a dream. en-US Then I picked up the morning paper. en-US James Stammer has been an avid golfer en-US and golf enthusiast for nearly 40 years.

14 en-USWen-UShat is all the fuss about eating en-US turkey? OK, OK, its high in en-US protein and low in fat, a low-carb en-US dieters dream. It is also an inexpensive en-US source of iron, zinc, phosphorus, potassium en-US and B-vitamins. en-US Turkey does have a strange power, en-US though. It has the ability to be a natural en-US sedative. Turkey has an amino acid called en-US tryptophan that helps the body produce the en-US B-vitamin niacin, which in turn helps the en-US body to produce serotonin that acts as a en-US calming agent in the brain and plays a role en-US in sleep. Now you know why everyone falls en-US asleep after Thanksgiving dinners. en-US By the way, it was Abraham Lincoln who en-US had Thanksgiving declared a federal en-US holiday in 1864.en-US Turkey is a variety of the pheasant and en-US recent fossil evidence shows turkeys have en-US roamed the Americas for 10 million years. I en-US cant quite understand that dinosaurs didnt en-US make it, but turkeys did. en-US The Aztecs are believed to be the first to en-US domesticate the turkey. And Christopher en-US Columbus brought turkeys back to Europe en-US and, by the 1500s, turkeys were being raised en-US domestically in Italy, France and England en-US for royalty and the aristocracy.en-US Turkey with all the trimmings was the en-US first meal eaten on the moon by astronauts en-US Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.en-US Now that you know what all the fuss is en-US over turkeys, lets talk about the best part en-US eating turkey. Do you like it smoked, fried, en-US braised, baked, boiled or stewed? What is en-US best is really up to you, but here are a few en-US tips that might help: en-US Purchase at least one pound of en-US uncooked turkey per person for dinner and en-US leftovers. If your family members have big en-US appetites figure on one and one half pounds en-US per person.en-US Fresh or frozen? Both are great choices. en-US I prefer fresh, though. I think it is a little en-US moister when cooked. Fresh turkey may en-US only be kept in the refrigerator one to two en-US days before cooking.en-US Frozen turkey should be thawed in the en-US refrigerator. 8 to 12 lbs. 1 to 2 da ys 12 to 16 lbs. 2 to 3 da ys 16 to 20 lbs. 3 to 4 da ys 20 to 24 lbs. 4 to 5 da ys en-US Once the turkey is thawed, it may only en-US be refrigerated one to two days before en-US cooking.en-US It is best to cook stuffing outside the en-US bird in a separate dish. The turkey will cook en-US faster, and the breast will retain moisture en-US better. If you decide to stuff the turkey, stuff en-US it just prior to cooking. Dressing should en-US cook to an internal temperature of 165 en-US degrees. en-US How much stuffing is enough? Usually en-US one cup per pound of turkey.en-US A thermometer is the best way to tell if en-US a turkey is done. The dark meat must reach en-US 165 degrees. Be careful not to touch bone en-US when temping, as you will get an inaccurate en-US reading. When reheating turkey the next en-US day, it should be heated to 165 degrees.en-US To store cooked turkey, it should be en-US placed in a covered container, plastic food en-US bag, or wax paper and aluminum foil for up en-US to 7 days in the refrigerator or three months en-US in the freezer.en-US Season the cavity with your secret en-US ingredients for best results. As for myself, I en-US love garlic hmmm, my father used to call en-US it Greek perfume!en-US My all-time favorite sandwich is made en-US from left-over turkey. Thank you for en-US Thanksgiving!en-USTHE TURKEY CLUB en-USIngredientsen-US Toasted bread, lettuce, tomato, cheddar en-US cheese, bacon and heavy mayonnaise. en-US Costa Magoulas is dean of the Mori en-US Hosseini College of Hospitality and Culinary en-US Management at Daytona State College.

Garden Mums en-US come in many colors and styles. Garden en-US Mums are a staple to the holiday season and en-US represent the end of summer and the en-US beginning of fall. Mums are actually fairly en-US easy to grow and can withstand both low en-US and high humidity situations. Mums can en-US actually mimic the look of other flowers en-US such as the smaller flower of a daisy (Daisy en-US Mums) or the larger and fancier varieties en-US that can almost look like roses. You can get en-US Chrysanthemum plants in almost every en-US color but blue.en-US Mums have been around for a long time en-US and I am sure that many of you have helped en-US your parents or grandparents display these en-US colorful gems during the holidays. Most of en-US the varieties that we use here in North en-US America are simply known as Garden en-US Mums with the botanical classification of en-US Dendranthea grandiflorum. About 80 en-US percent of all garden Mums are sold during en-US the fall and early winter. The reason that en-US these colorful plants burst into bloom in fall en-US is because the shorter days, cooler temperaen-US -en-US tures and longer nights all contribute to the en-US triggering mechanism that causes these en-US plants to burst into color. Since this winter en-US is going be an El Nino winter, the forecast is en-US for a wet and cool winter season in Florida. en-US This should be great weather for Mums and en-US other winter flowers that love cooler en-US temperatures!en-US Many people simply buy their Mums in en-US the fall already in bloom from retailers. en-US Others like to plant their own plants and en-US watch them mature and bloom in their own en-US gardens. If you decide to try planting your en-US own, do so in the spring so the root systems en-US can have a chance to get well established to en-US ensure a happy, healthy plant. en-US Mums should be planted in a location en-US that will get only a half-day of sun or en-US slightly less. This is especially true in the en-US areas south of Vero Beach. The areas north en-US of Vero Beach will probably have better en-US results with growing Mums in your garden en-US as the harsh effects of the sun are slightly en-US lessened. You can ensure you will get more en-US flowers in the fall if you pinch back the top en-US inch or so of growth about every three en-US weeks until about mid July. This process en-US will help to promote heavy flowing in the en-US fall. Please note you only do the above en-US process if you plan on growing and en-US maintaining your garden Mums on a year en-US round basis.en-US Mums will grow in a variety of soils as en-US long as it is well drained. Mums do not en-US require a lot of fertilizer but will appreciate en-US a light feeding about once a month with a en-US water-soluble fertilizer such as Miracle Gro. en-US It will also help if you stake your plants, as en-US this will help them to support themselves en-US and keep the heavy Florida rains from en-US knocking them over.en-US If you plan on only using your Mums as a en-US potted decoration for the holidays, many of en-US the same rules will apply. Keep the plant in en-US a bright, well-lit area of the house and do en-US not let the plant get too dry between en-US watering cycles. Remember that potted en-US plants will dry out much faster then plants en-US that are placed in the ground. A/C will also en-US have an impact on your plant's moisture en-US level.en-US As you can see, having and taking care of en-US Mums does not have to be difficult. en-US Growing and viewing these plants can have en-US so many rewards that any work involved in en-US keeping them looking nice will be well en-US worth it.en-US Joe Zelenak has more than 30 years en-US experience in gardening and landscape.
