Carole Matthews O'Connor
wins Teacher of Year
BY RITA HART


Staff writer
Carole Matthews O'Connor, a second-
grade teacher at Warfield Elementary
School in Indiantown, has been selected
Martin County School District's Teacher of
the Year.
Ms. O'Connor was recognized for her
efforts to incorporate real-life lesson
plans for her students, many of whom are
underprivileged and struggle with lan-
guage barriers.
"Traditionally, not a lot is expected of
children with these challenges," Ms.
O'Connor said. "Our students not only
raised the bar, but they cleared it, and we
have the whole community to thank for
that."
Ms. O'Connor beat out 21 other educa-
tors who were nominated for the award.
"There are great teachers in our district,"
said Ms. O'Connor. "Our district is at the
top of the state right now, so I'm honored
to represent them."
Ms. O'Connor will now compete state-
wide for the title of Florida Teacher of the
Year.
Ms. O'Connor's award is the third in the

Six men faithfully maintain cemetery


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer


STUART- Maybe you have
seen them. They cut, mow,
weed, edge, trim and have
helped make Fernhill Cemetery
on Kanner Highway sparkle for
19 years.
Helping People Succeed, a
United Way agency in Martin
County, employs six to eight
individuals with disabilities.
The workers fulfill the lawn
maintenance contract HPS has
with Fernhill.
More than 50 people over the
last 19 years have been
employed through the program
and have been taught employ-
ment skills.
"This particular program is a
stepping stone for many of the
workers," said Joette Smith, the
supervised work settings coor-
dinator.
"Their primary job is lawn


maintenance, but what they are
also being taught is general
employment skills. Through the
skills training program many go
from here and integrate into
society and hold community
jobs."
She said these men love their
jobs. They work as a team and
really care about each other.
"Some men like Ed, our detail
man extraordinaire and joke
teller of the group, love it here.
He does not want another job.
He has success here, so that is
his choice to stay. Gene, on the
other hand, started with the
program 19 years ago and after
two years he went into the com-
munity and held a couple of dif-
ferent jobs until recently. Gene
is highly skilled, owns a home,
raises orchids and, now he is
semi-retired and back with us
part time," Ms. Smith said.
She also said the employees
gain by recognizing errors and


how to correct them. They learn
how to be on time, accept direc-
tion from authority, to socialize
with co-workers and to abide by
time limits with breaks and
lunch.
Francky Polynice, HPS train-
ing specialist, helps guide the
team with Ms. Smith. Together
they help the workers make
right choices, learn skills, grow
in confidence and succeed in a
comfortable and safe environ-
ment.
"The use of positive rein-
forcement in the program is
essential to help the employees
flourish and feel successful.
Finding the good and striving to
praise them for what they have
done right is a big motivation
for them to continue to learn
and grow," Ms. Smith said
"They like being regular guys
with a regular job getting a regu-

formula


ring

Investigation is
ongoing, ring may be
nationwide
BY RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART Florida Department
of Law Enforcement agent Rich
Piccininni said this week his
agency is still looking into a baby
formula trafficking ring.
"We came upon this all of a sud-
den. We are still working on an on
going investigation," said Mr. Pic-
cininni, who declined to indicate
which other states may be
involved in the operation.
FDLE and the Martin County
Sheriff's Office arrested seven
people on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1, and
in the process seized 1,700 cans of
baby formula, worth an estimated
$48,600.
A confidential informant con-
tacted FDLE on Jan. 31 and indi-
cated that a group was planning
on hitting several Treasure Coast
grocery and retail stores, includ-
ing the Publix store in Wedge-
wood Commons, to steal a large
amount baby formula., The
informant provided the descrip-
tion of a vehicle the group was
believed to be driving.
A Publix store manager noticed
a group placing large quantities of
formula in carts, but when the
group was approached by Publix
employees, they fled.
Anne Hendricks, Publix media
relations specialist, said, "It's an
open investigation, and we don't
comment on them. Obviously, we
are cooperating with FDLE."
The informant told FDLE that
the group was at the Suburban
Lodge in Stuart. Agent Kevin Kulp
observed the group leave the
lodge and drive to Tropical Self
Storage, where the FDLE agent
watched .them load stolen formu-
la into a minivan.
At that point, the FDLE agent

STUART Shawn
Patrick Trotter, a history
teacher at South Fork High
School, was alone in his
classroom on Jan. 18 with


one of his students, a 16-
year-old girl.
Mr. Trotter's history class
had been the last of the day,
and the student, who
described him as "friendly
and nice," was hanging out
in his classroom.
He talked with her about

teachers who got in trouble
for having sex with stu-
dents, and then asked her if
she was interested.
Now Mr. Trotter, 34, is at
the center of such a case,
charged with three counts
sexual activity with a
minor, after the girl told
Martin County Sheriff's
Detective Brian Broughton
about three classroom
trysts.
Martin County Sheriff's
deputies some of them
deputized U.S. Marshals -
arrested Mr. Trotter on Feb.
5 at his home in Vero
Beach, 314 13th Lane S.W.
He was being held at the
Martin County Jail on a
$225,000 bond at press
time.
When school officials
learned of the investigation
in late January, they pulled
Mr. Trotter from the class-
room and reassigned him
to district headquarters. At
the time of his arrest, Mr.
Trotter was still employed
by the district.
Officials at South Fork
High School referred ques-
tions about Mr. Trotter to
Cathy Brennan, the district
spokeswoman.


Shawn Trotter -
Ms. Brennan said Mr.
Trotter requested sick leave
after the reassignment, and
had not begun his new job
at the time of his arrest.
After Mr. Trotter proposi-
tioned the girl on Jan. 18,
the police report states that
he led her to the class-
room's storage closet,
kissed her, removed her
shirt and forced her to per-
form oral sex.
When they heard a
noise, they stopped, got
dressed and left the class-
room.
Four days later, the girl
told investigators that she
and Mr. Trotter engaged in
sexual intercourse on the
closet floor.

work at the end of the day they are
proud of it," said Ms. Smith.
"They all have special talents and
it is our job to find out what that is
and pull it out of them."
For example, she said A.J., an
excellent mower and the visionary
of the group, knows what is going on
all of the time. He has a short atten-
tion span, but he don't miss a beat
and can tell her everything going on
in the cemetery at any given
moment.
She said that Frank has been with
them for more than five years and is
their quality control guy.


He apologized to the girl
on Jan. '24, telling her
"what they had done was
wrong and he could get
fired or go to jail, and that
he would not do it again,"
the report states.
On Jan. 29, the girl


"If you want to get it done right,
call Frank. He is skilled in every area
and drives the tractor," Ms. Smith
said.
They noticed that Joshua liked to
walk and walk fast so they put a
trimmer in his hands and he trims
the whole property faster than any-
body there. Now they call him the
'star' edger."
From time to time a past program
employee will come back for a
refresher course after struggling
with their job in the community.
Alores, a past program employee,
recently came back to the support
system at Fernhill for such a refresh-


stayed after class again,
alone with Mr. Trotter. He
took her into the storage
closet, the report states,
and they had sex again.
Two students reported
the incidents to school
authorities two days later,


and officials asked the
Sheriff's Office to investi-
gate.
Detectives then began
collecting security camera
video clips, a carpet sam-
ple from the storage closet
and other evidence.


er course.
Taking care of each individual and
helping them succeed is the part of
the mission statement of HPS.
"Fernhill has been the perfect
contract for this type of program. In
1997, they gave us an on-site build-
ing, which added to the crew's sense
of doing real work. The office, break
room and shop are all housed in' the
building. It's a great place to work,"
Ms. Smith said.
For more information on HPS, call
Peggy Volpe, at (772) 221-4050, Ext.

years we've had a teacher

Lt. Jenell Atlas, the sher-
iff's spokeswoman. "But
this is the first one that I
know of that happened on

Missing Jensen Beach woman
is found safe in Stuart

An elderly Jensen Beach woman, last seen on Jan.
18 at her Villa Assumpta apartment complex, was
found unharmed.
Janet Lounsberry, 73, was reported missing by her
daughter on Jan. 21, when the daughter, Debbie
Lounsberry, visited Mrs. Lounsberry's apartment,
and could not find her.
Mrs. Lousberry was found over a week later, when
an alert gas station clerk at Kanner Highway and
Indian Street recognized Mrs. Lounsberry from
media reports, and called authorities.
Mrs. Lounsberry could not recall where she had
between Jan. 21, when her daughter reported her
missing, and the last weekend in January, when she
was found. However, several receipts found in her
car were from locations in Miami.

Local man sentenced to probation for
failure to complete contracting work

Steven Carl Klix, 45, was sentenced by Martin
County Circuit Court judge Robert Belanger to
three years supervision for third-degree grand
theft, contracting without a license, and contract-
ing without a license during a state of emergency.
Mr. Klix, of Stuart, fraudulently used the compa-
ny name of a legitimate business for whom he pre-
viously did sub-contracting work. That business,
Hurley Builders, has consistently denied Mr. Klix's
claims that Hurley Builders was merging with Mr.
Klix's company, "The Screen Guy."
Mr. Klix was charged with taking funds for screen
enclosures from at least 10 people in 2005, but
never completed the work.

past six months to spot-
light Warfield Elemen-
tary.
In Nov., 2006, the U.S.
Department of Education
named Warfield Elemen-
tary one of its No Child
Left Behind Blue Ribbon
schools, just two months
after the principal of
Warfield, Loreen Frances-


cani, received Florida's
2006 Principal Achieve-
ment Award for Out-
standing Leadership.
In bestowing the honor,
the Martin County School
District leaders recog-
nized the enormous con-
tribution of Ms. O'Con-
nor in meeting the
challenges facing her stu-
dents.
A resident of Martin
County since 1979, Ms.
O'Connor has taught sec-


ond grade at Warfield for
nine years.
"One of my goals is to
tie lessons to the chil-
dren's real world experi-
ences," said Ms. O'Con-
nor.
"I try to motivate them
to want to learn the
material, but also cover
the state standards. I try
to incorporate as many
creative and hands-on
activities as possible,"
she said.

One way she accom-
plishes this is by applying
for grants on her own.
She uses those grants to
take the children on field
trips or to buy teaching
materials for them.
"By tying reading,
learning and math to real
world experiences, you
light that fire and find out
their strengths," said Ms.
O'Connor.,
One such grant was'
from the John and Mary
Pew Foundation, for
$2,000.
Ms. O'Connor used
those funds to purchase
books for the children by
author Shelley Gill, one of
the first women to com-
pete in Alaska's Iditarod
races.
Ms. O'Connor's stu-


dents learned about the
1,100-mile dog sled races
by reading the book.
Then Ms. Gill, who lim-
its her school, visits to
only two per year, made a
personal trip to Ms.
O'Connor's classroom,
spoke of her experiences,
and autographed each of
the children's books.
The education on Idi-,
tarod races didn't stop
there. Warfield's art class-
es made dogs, and stu-
dents staked out a race
course in the school's
courtyard.
"We would move the
mushers each day as we
tracked the race," said
Ms. O'Connor. "Even the
teachers loved doing it."
The affection that Ms.
O'Connor, the mother of
three daughters, has for
her students is often
reciprocated.
"We know each and
every child individually,"
she said. "They grow up
and come back to see us,
and we celebrate their
victories."
This Martin County
Teacher of the Year is
fully aware that being-a
teacher is not just a job.
"It's a great thing to be
involved in the life of a
chiId,"-&a4d -Ms. O'Con-
nor. "I can't think of any
career that would be
more rewarding.",

Platinum
The platinum group met-
als comprise six closely
related metals: Platinum,
Palladium, Rhodium,
Ruthenium, Iridium and
Osmium.
Platinum (symbol 'PI) wwqs
accepted as. a precious
metal only after the sec-
ond half of 19th century
and has a deep luster and
a rich, white color. It is rarer
and heavier than all pre-
cious metals and consid-
ered to be more valuable
than gold.
Platinum Is often used to
set the most valuable
gems.. to., producee the
finest jewelry.
Platinum holds gem-
stones most securely,
because its strength and
neutral color enhances
the brilliance ,and depth
of diamonds ahd precious
stones. Because of its den-
sity and weight, you can
feel the difference
between platinum and
other precious metals.
,There are no karat ,marks

or e-mail Rants-N-Raves@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.



Vote once before you rant

I just read, "Vote before you rant."
Let me tell the ranter that I know many northern-
ers who voted, absentee ballot of course, and they
laughed at us with the election of President Bush
over (Al) Gore. While we are talking about it, they
voted absentee ballot up north and here, in Flori-
da.
I also went to the Election Commission and said
something to the commissioner of elections and
was brushed off. They don't have the time or per-
sonnel to verify that these people's voting rights
have been cancelled up north when they take out
absentee ballots or register to vote down here. So,
these people are voting in two places.


Sign your credit cards


Regarding the age-old issue of not signing the
back of your credit and/or debit card and instead
writing "See ID".
Well, I did just that and what the person who
stole my credit and debit card did was make up a
fake ID with her picture, my name, and her signa-
ture using my name.
When this criminal was caught and brought to
court, I was responsible for all purchases that she
charged because the clerks at the stores, did their
job, which I had directed they do, by looking at the
signature and picture on the (unknown to me,
fake) ID. They compared it to the signature on the
receipt of the person in front of them.
When I questioned this to the judge and said that
I thought the cardholder was responsible only for
the first $50 spent, I was told that was not valid in
my case because I did not sign the card with my
very own hands, in my very own signature.
In other words, I did not do what the actual
owner of the credit card, the credit card company,
mandated me to do.
People, we do not own our credit cards. These
credit card companies are kind enough to extend
credit to us and it is our obligation to fulfill their
administrations. We cannot presume to be smarter
than they are -and simply make up our own rules,
as we feel fit. The back of the card states in plain
English "authorized signature. Card not valid
unless signed."
Not valid! What part of those words do you not
understand? It's not written in Chinese. It's written
in plain English.
This is the case even if your picture and signature
is pre-printed on the front. The clerk is not a
detective. If you leave the back of your credit card
blank, the thief signs the back and the clerk com-
pares that signature with the one on the receipt,
they are doing what their employer is paying them
to do. They are also doing exactly what the credit
card companies want done, which is to compare
the signature on the back of the credit card to the
signature on the receipt.


Take charge of your mailbox

As the spouse of a mail carrier, I am tired of the way
they are perceived, and the way that they are treated.
Here are some rules that everyone out there should
live by concerning their mail:
*Never leave money in your mailbox. Period. You
own and control your mailbox, so if you insist on
leaving honey there, know that any passerby could
conceivably peak in and take it. There is no guaran-
tee that the money will be there for your mail carrier.
*If you insist on leaving money in your mailbox,
call the post office and find out the exact amount
needed for what you want, and leave only the exact
amount. Your carrier does not have a bank in the
truck, nor a complete selection of all stamps offered
by the U.S. Mail.
*If you leave a note for your mail carrier; type it or
print in large bold legible letters. Admit it, even your
spouse and children can't read your penmanship!
*Fix your mailbox. Contact your local mail office,
and find out regulations concerning the height
requirements, as well as distance from the edge of
the road requirements.
Adjust your box accordingly. If your box is tilted,
wobbly, the door is either permanently open or
closed, or in other states of disrepair, fix it! You
know your box is in need of a repair job, don't wait
until it finally keels .over, or falls apart and then
blame your mail carrier!
*All drivers, especially of trucks and vans, if you
hit a mailbox own up to it! Mailboxes, in'general are
not high tech, and can be repaired for a nominal fee
if you hit it backing up, so "fess up and pay up".
*Owners of mailboxes, don't automatically blame
the mail carrier if your box was hit. There are a lot of
trucks, trash, landscape, etc., as well as SUVS and
vans that could have hit it. If more people followed
the suggestion above, then the poor mail carrier, out
delivering the mail, would not be blamed for other
people's "sins."
*Don't call the post office when your mail is late,


or you don't get mail one day. There are literally::bil-
lions of pieces of mail sorted and delivered daily. If
you have mail, it will be delivered. Have a little
patience and be glad on those days that you don't
have-junk mail.
*Take your name off junk mail, catalogs, etc., that
you don't need. Not only can you save the environ-
ment, but all of that unwanted mail is clogging up
the mail system.
*If you are mailing important mail, something
that is valuable or can't be lost, don't leave it in a
mailbox. Take the time to go to the post office and
send it certified and/or insured.
Ask a neighbor for a ride, take a cab, or the loca
bus if you don't have a car. If it is that important
you need to take responsibility for mailing it correct
ly!
*If you don't like the mail system, get a PO box,
use e-mail. Mail is delivered six days a week. Many
the carriers use their own cars."Some carriers cai
work six different routes in a given week. Carriersdo
not get paid hourly. If a route "pays five hours" an
it takes them 12 hours to complete it, they get pai
for five hours.
Carriers sort the mail, and then deliver it. The mai
is not handed to them in deliverable order. Have
some patience and understanding out there
You should be thankful that you receive your mail
instead of constantly finding something to complain
about it.

Which way are you going?

Automobile manufacturers spent several million
dollars developing turn signals, yet more than 50
percent of Florida drivers never use them, especially
in roundabouts or to change lanes.
The only time I ever see a turn signal on is when an
old man is in the left lane, going 25 MPH with his sig-
nal on and no intention of turning.

United Way seeks

volunteers for 2007

Citizen Review Panel


By RITA HART
StaffWriter
The United Way of
Martin County is seek-
ing 70 volunteers to
serve on its Citizen
Review Panel in 2007.
The purpose of the
panel is to review the
requests of' agencies
who have asked for
funding from United
Way.
"This is the best way
to learn how United Way,
contributions are being
invested in support of
local community pro-
grams," said Valerie Gra-
ham in a statement.
Mrs. Graham is a
resource investment
staff member for United
Way.
Volunteers would
commit to serve ten to
12 hours over two
months in March and
April.
In existence since
1972, the panel sits
annually and volunteers
have the choice of sign-
ing up for one year or to
participate every year.
Each year, United Way
looks for diverse volun-
teers who are represen-


tative of the Martin
County community.
There are no require-
ments to become a
panel member, although
some knowledge about
health and human care
needs in Martin County,
or knowledge of the
operations of nonprofit
organizations is helpful.
"We encourage indi-
viduals who contribute
financially to the United
Way and other local
charities to volunteer
their time, so they can
see first-hand the
results of their dona-
.tions," said Jim Vojcsik,
executive director of
United Way of Martin
County.
Feb. 23 is the deadline
to sign up for the panel.
All volunteers must
attend an orientation
and planning session on
,March 12 from 9-11 a.m.
at Treasure Coast Hos-
pices, 1201 S.E. Indian
St., Stuart.
For more information,

ham at vgraham@unit-

High school kids build a house


'Education goes
beyond the four
walls of the
classroom'
By RITA HART
StaffWriter
FORT PIERCE A
chance meeting at a local
store brought a school, a
business and an organiza-
tion together to build a
house for a family in Fort
Pierce.
"It all started when I saw
my friend Domenick Scot-
to, a John Carroll Catholic
High School religion
instructor, at the St. Lucie
Battery and Tire store on
Orange Avenue in Fort
Pierce," said Al Rivett,
executive director of St.
Lucie Habitat for Humani-
ty.
He said they were, catch-
ing up on each other's lives
when Mr. Scotto asked if it
would be possible for John
Carroll students to help
build a Habitat House as a
school project.
"It sounded like a great
idea, and would be the first
time a school helped build
a house with our organiza-
tion. The possibility of hav-
ing the students help build
was exciting," Mr. Rivett
said.
Mr. Scotto, the JCHS reli-
gion teacher said, "Last
year at a JCHS retreat, the
juniors suggested that we
find a service project for
2007 that would promote
unity within the school in a
non-academic setting.
They wanted a different
kind of community service
project.
"When I ran into Mr. Riv-
ett from Habitat in the car
store, I thought 'this is too
strange,' cause it really

clicked with what the stu-
dents wanted."
Mr. Scotto took the next
step and brought the serv-
ice project idea to Father
Thomas Barrett, president
of the school and to Ben
Hopper, principal.
Mr. Scotto also needed to
find a sponsor for the proj-
ect. That's when he went to
Joey Miller, owner of St.
Lucie Battery and Tire (the
store in which he and Mr.
Rivett first met) and asked
him to be the financial


sponsor of the whole proj-
ect.
Mr. Miller said yes and.
the project went forward
from there.
"I did not know that Mr.
Scotto and Mr. Rivett came
up with this idea in my
store," Mr. Miller said.
"I think it's funny that we
ended up being the spon-
sor. I see it as a three-way
deal with Habitat, the
school and our company.
It's just a win, win, win,"
said Mr. Miller.


Mr. Miller said he hopes
to build one house a year
with the school.
On Wednesday Jan. 31,
behind the track field on
the campus of John Carroll
Catholic High School in
Fort Pierce, the exterior
and interior walls of the
Habitat for Humanity
house were built.

Healthy puppies

loved from the start


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


STUART -The first thing a
visitor notices upon enter-
ing This 'N That Puppy Store
is that the place is incredi-
bly spotless.
"That first impression is
important," said Adrian
James, part-owner of the
family operated business.
"We take pride in how clean
th de store is."
Beyond that first impres-
sion, however, is the real
reason people enter the
store.


The puppies here are in
individual glass-walled
enclosures, and a visitor
might just want to hold
every one of them.
Shirleen Tucker, Mr.
James' wife, is quick to
point out where their pup-
pies come from.
"We hand-pick our dogs.
They do not come from
puppy farms. We get them
from breeders in several dif-
ferent states, and they are
delivered to us in an air-
conditioned van."

Jensen Beach
man takes $7.8
million in lump
sum payment
BY RITA HART
Staff writer
JENSEN BEACH Flori-
da Lottery officials
announced on Jan. 29
that a local man, Edward
R. Cowal, was the only
member of The Quantum
Trust of Stuart, which
claimed the estimated
$14 million Lotto jackpot.
Mr. Cowal chose to
accept his winnings in a
one-time lump sum pay-
ment of $7.8 million.
Mr. Cowal, 47, is'a reg-
istered sex offender with
a record of arrests on
other criminal charges in
the last 20 years.
When asked if lottery
officials were discussing
the possibility of pro-
hibiting convicted crimi-
nals from claiming lot-
tery winnings in the
future, Alfred Bea, com-
munications manager for
the Florida Lottery said,
"I guess I'm not privy to
those higher level discus-
sions. Obviously there are
some issues there. I
think looking into the
justice system may be
necessary, as there may
be constitutional issues."
Noting that lottery tick-
et sales generate funds
for Florida's schools, Mr.
Bea said, "Here at the lot-
tery what we are mostly
concerned about is gen-
erating funds for sup-
porting education, and in
that we follow the law to
the letter. That requires
us to pay the rightful

have questions," said Ms.
Tucker.
"We have books that will
help them decide if certain
dogs are good with fami-
lies, what size the dog will
be, their temperament. A


lot of people come in and
they don't know what they
want. We try to match a dog
with the family," she said.
Ms. Tucker said that
some customers come in
with a particular breed in
mind. If the store doesn't
have the breed at that time,
they will get one for the
customer.


"We get new breeds
weekly," said Ms. Tucker.
This 'N That Puppy Store
also offers a full line of dog
items, such as toys, beds,
carriers and lams and
Eukanuba brands of dog
food.
If a customer purchases a
crate for a puppy for
$49.99, that purchase will


include dog food, a toy, col-
lar, lead and a dog bowl.
When a puppy is pur-
chased, a photo is taken of
the puppy and the new
owners. One wall of the
store is lined with such
photos.
The family expects to
expand the store in the
near future to include


mugs, cups and T-shirts
that will contain the photo.
They also expect to offer
grooming services.
This 'N That Puppy Store
is located at 1712 N. W Fed-
eral Highway in Stuart. For

Dreading

f you are older than 55,
you should have had a
.colonoscopy. If you
haven't, call your doctor,
because this could save
your life.
It did mine, but that's
another story. I had
another colonoscopy
yesterday, and I have to tell
you that it's a very unpleas-
ant experience, mainly
from the mental anguish
anticipation and the
discomfort of the prepara-
tion the previous day.
I had a lot of time to
think about my procedure
and I started thinking
about how this experience
parallels that of buying a
car. It's something you
must do and has a very
good benefit, but you
dread the process.

afternoon on behalf of a
customer whose install-
ment sales contract, signed
by her and the dealership,
had a higher interest rate
than a second contract
that the dealer sent to the
lender. The customer told
me she signed only one
contract, the one she took
a copy of.
One thing that amazes
me about these weekly
columns I have been
writing for almost a year is
that no car dealer has ever
called me to complain or
for any other reason. I have
not been sued either.
I think that says some-
thing about the truth of my
articles. I'm not a lawyer,
but I do know that you
can't successfully sue
somebody for libel or
slander if they write or say
the truth.
I know of one car dealer
who threatened to cancel
her advertising in the Palm
Beach Post because she
thought it owned Home-
town News. I am puzzled
why not one single dealer
would call me just out of
curiosity. I don't have a
secretary and I don't screen
any of my calls, nor do any
of my employees.
They do know how
successful my dealership is
and how fast my sales are
growing. They know that I
am selling a lot of their
former customers.
Many of these new
customers tell me how
they told the other dealers
why they chose to take
their business elsewhere.
I believe that before too
much longer, we will see
some changes in the way
other car dealers do
business, even if they
refuse to call me, as I have
repeatedly invited them to
do.
Sooner orlater they will
understand that treating
your customers with.
courtesy and integrity is
just plain good business.

WEIGHT AND
FUEL MILEAGE
Any car enthusiast will tell yoi
that weight is the enemy of per
formance. Even if you don't rac
cars, you know that less weigh
translates to better mileage. WitI
this in mind, motorists ar
advised to take all unnecessary
items out of their vehicles. Take
to the extreme, even losing weigh
can make a difference. A recent
study found that, collectively
Americans are burning nearly on
billion more gallons of gasoline
annually than we did in 1961
because we weigh more
Government figures show tha
Americans weigh about 21
pounds more per person, on aver
age, than we did in 1960. It is esti
mated that, for every additions
pound of passenger weight
Americans use 39 million gallon
of fuel yearly.
Although losing weight to sav
gas mileage may sound extreme
it really does work. At ADVAN
TAGE FORQ OF STUART, we rec
ommend removing all unneces
sary items. It could save yol
money. Located at 4000 S.E
Federal Highway, we can help yoi
save gas by performing mainte
nance on your vehicle. By takin(
proper care of your car, truck, o
SUV, you can improve your cur
rent gas mileage. We service
most major makes and models, ii
addition to Ford an(
Lincoln/Mercury cars. Ca
772.781.6540 to schedule al
appointment today
HINT: One way that auto manu
facturers reduce weight in vehi
cles is by eliminating the spar
tire and replacing it with run-fla
tires.

Fritrav Fahrulanr Q 7M007


Avoid wiping computer out


This week I thought I
would write a
column that will
(hopefully) help someone
avoid one of the pitfalls of
computer ownership.
What I am writing about
this week happens so
frequently (it just makes
me cringe thinking about
it) but it shouldn't happen
at all. Especially consider-
ing that the cause of this
re-occurring problem is
invariably someone who
should know better.
What is it? What keeps
happening to get me so
riled up?
I'm talking about
repeated instances of
people calling "tech
support" for minor
problems, only to have the
tech-support people (who
should know better)
instruct the poor, unsus-
pecting computer owner
to format their hard drive
and start from scratch.
That's like getting a
lobotomy for a headache.
Then, when a user
suddenly realizes all of her
data is now gone (hardly
anyone makes backups,
you know) the guy on the
other end of the phone
casually tells her it's not
his responsibility.
The above scenario does
happen. A lot. I probably
get two or three calls a
year from people who just
got off the phone with tech
support and are left
holding the pieces of a
once-functional comput-
er, now freshly restored to
it's original factory specs,
with no idea how to get all


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

their programs, desktop
and applications back in,
let alone their personal
data.
It's sad (I've seen grown
adults reduced to tears
because of it) but avoid-
able. Let's cover a few
points so you can be aware
when someone who is
supposed to know better is
about to lead you down
the road to ruin.
If you ever get to the
point where you feel you
need to call the computer
manufacturer, remember
the guy on the other end
of the phone is really busy
(he takes calls like yours all
day long, every day, 40
hours a week) and he's
going to want to get your
call over and done with as
quickly as possible. Many
times, he'll want to speed
up the process by telling
you to find your "restore"
or "system restoration"
disk.
When he does, a bell
should go off in your head.
Are you prepared to wipe
out your computer's hard


drive and start from
scratch? Are all of your
data files backed up? (Do
you have copies of all of
your Word, XL, book-
marks, e-mail addresses,
etc?)
Also, consider the
reason you called tech
support in the first place.
Was it for a relatively
minor problem, such as
difficulty connecting to
the Internet or maybe a
printer that was acting up?
If you don't have your
data backed up or the
problem you called about
is a minor one, you may
want to put the brakes on
his proposed repair. Since
computers are so incredi-
bly complex and they
quite literally "grow" 9
around their user, they can

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.>9

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee". '


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "My CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectat
customers.


1S

No


i* 1


Virtually every car dealer of eaua
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a SophlstU
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


ht


h


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my. profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was. making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
towers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
ition are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me;
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart Earl Stewart Toyota

So, what would cause a

Well, critical errors such
as failure of the system to
wake up wgquld be one
reason, butopnly after all
other avenues of approach
have been exhausted.
I think that suggesting
that a person "restore"

school," Brynn said.
Principal Hopper added,
"Sometimes education
must go beyond the four
walls of the classroom.
Teaching students to serve
their community and give
of themselves is a huge part
of their training here at the
school."
Richard Schlitt, a Vero
Beach businessman,
organized the adult super-
visors, which was a critical
component with such an
endeavor with youth.-One
supervisor was assigned to
each of the twelve groups of
student to give guidance
and direction.
Habitat then transported
the wall panels to the prop-
erty at 4012 Avenue I in Fort

Sophomore and fresh-


men classes will also have

in the project by spending a
day at the construction site.
For JCHS, the project is in
line with their mission to
help form Christ-like char-
acter in their students by
teaching them to serve.
"It is definitely putting
our faith" in action. Jesus
,told us to take care of the
poor. This project has
turned out to be a real
teaching tool for the faculty
as well. This hands-on
experience is teaching stu-
dents about servant hood,
teamwork and what the
church is all about," Mr.
Scotto said.

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff Writer
VERO BEACH The
Carpet Market isn't one of
those businesses where
inexperienced salesmen
in hundreds of similar
looking stores provide the
same level of impersonal
service to customers in
the same atmosphere.
It's a family-owned
business where the own-
ers talk to customers on a
first-name basis. They
stress personal contact.
And the owners, Kevin

The experience in car-
pet cleaning and restora-
tion has been invaluable
to the sales of carpets,
Kevin Walker said.
"We know what carpet
stays clean longer and
stands up to traffic and
wears better," Mr. Walker
said.
Six years ago, The Car-
pet Market partnered
with Stainmaster Carpet,
bringing the most
durable floor covering to
the Treasure Coast.
One of the stores' most
popular offerings is Stain-


master Ultra Life Carpet,
praised for its resistance
to spills, fortitude under
heavy foot traffic and 15-
year warranty.
Stainmaster, which is
composed of unique
fibers and frequently
updates its styles,
remains popular because
of its long-lasting war-
ranties.
"This is the best war-
ranty by far in the busi-
ness," Mr. Roberts said.
For Stainmaster Ultra
Life Carpet, the warranty
protects owners from any

stains for 15 years.
"If you're walking
through your living room
in the 14th year and you
spill cup of coffee, you're
covered," Mr. Roberts
said.
"This separates us from
everyone else and is
available, exclusively at
our stores," he added
Aside from carpet, the
stores carry the top
brands in wood & tile
flooring.
In addition to the wall-
to-wall offerings, the
stores offer the Treasure's
Coast largest selection of
area rugs, including top
brands such as Karastan,
Tommy Bahama and
Kathy Ireland.
Custom rugs are also
available.
Mr. Walker said part of
Stainmaster's appeal is its
history. The brand's
recognition by con-
sumers is a boon, too.
DuPont developed the
carpeting when it sprayed
regular nylon carpet
fibers with Teflon, the
coating famous for its use
in nonstick cookware. In
carpet, however, Teflon
made the nylon fibers

resistant to stains. In
1986, DuPont rolled out
Stainmaster- Carpet to
consumers to great fan-
fare.
Mr. Walker said Stain-
master continues to
update its products.
"We have an advantage
because we're teamed up
with Stainmaster," Mr.
Walker said.
Today, the company
operates stores in Stuart
and Vero Beach and has
been covering Treasure
Coast floors in carpet,
tile, hardwood and lami-
nate since 1988.
The Stuart store, The
Stainmaster Flooring
Center, also known as The
Carpet Market, is located
at 1655 N.W. Federal
Highway. It is open from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to
Friday and from 9 a.m. to
4 p.m. on Saturday.
The Vero Beach store,
The Stainmaster Flooring
Center, is located at 1355
U.S. 1. (in the plaza
behind Crispers). It is
open from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m., Monday to Friday
and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
on Saturday.
Mr. Roberts said the
stores have plans to open
on Sunday real soon.
Each store will be open
from noon to 4 p.m.
. To reach the Vero Beach
store, call (772) 794-9970.

Happy

Valentine


greetings

to Roy

L ast year I wrote a
Valentine's Day
column to my
husband, Roy, who has
Alzheimer's disease. Many
of you were kind enough
to tell me how much that
column touched you.
I'd like to re-run it, with
an update about Roy and
information for you if you
caring for someone with
this terrible illness.
This column is very
personal. It's aValentine to
my husband, Roy Malt-
wood, who I met when I
was 23 and married when I
was39.
I think he finally decided
I'd grown up all I was going
to. We've been through a lot
together, and he's respond-
ed to each crisis with a
British stiff-upper lip,
forged in wartime London,
a sense of dry humor and a.
cup of tea. He set a standard
for caregiving when I was ill
with breast cancer and.
several years of complica-
tions that will be impossible
for me to match, but now I
must try to do it for him.
Roy has Alzheimer's
disease. He was diagnosed
two years ago, a year after
,we movedto Florida. Roy,
who had met every chal-
lenge, who loved life as no
one I'd ever met, suddenly
didn't want to venture out,
didn't want to drive and
didn't want doany part-
time work to keep busy.
I became frustrated,
wondering what the
problem was. He didn't
seem to remember where
the grocery store was or the
turn-off for our house. I
thought maybe he was
depressed. Maybe the years
of taking care of me had
taken their toll.
Sometimes I got impa-

Valentine's Day:
A celebration of love
Hello smart shoppers.
Here it is again, a special
day that I'd like to
pretend doesn't exist. For those
of you who don't know, I lost
my valentine on May 27,2004,
nine months after an automobile
accident that changed his life.
Bill was my honey and my
valentine since I was a teenager.
It's almost three years since he
died, yet I can't seem to remove
my wedding rings or at least put
them on my right hand. This
year, I pledge to do so. If you see
me and notice my hand, please
say hello and let me know you
understand.
I am available for talks from
Vero Beach to Hobe Sound. Call
the paper and leave a message at
(772) 465-5656.
This column is for you, so pay
attention. Any advice I give I have
lived, and since I was married for
more than 40 years, I think I'm
sort of an authority on making a
marriage work.
I was always curious about the
real origin ofValentine's Day and
figured you might be, too. I
turned, as usual, to my trusty
World Book Encyclopedia and
found very little is actually known
about the true origin of this
special day.
Different authorities believe
Valentine's Day began in various
ways.
Some trace it to an ancient
Roman festival called Lupercalia;
however, that festival did not
occur on Feb. 14 but on Feb. 15.
There is ambiguous evidence of
two early Christians named
Valentine who were martyred on
Feb. 14 in different parts of Italy.
No one knows for sure if there
was one or two, but the one from
Rome was believed to have been


a priest and was
sainted in 350 A.D.
There is no conclu-
sive evidence
whether Valentine
was one or two men
and no conclusive
evidence for doubt- .
ing the existence of
either man.
Others believe the
origin ofValentine's
Day came from an
English poet of the
1300s named
Geoffrey Chaucer,
who chose Feb. 14 as Valentine's
Day because the birds chose
their mates on that day.
Another story says Valentine
was an early Christian who
befriended many children. When
he was imprisoned for refusing to
worship ancient Roman gods,
children would toss love notes
between the bars of his cell, thus
the possible beginning of
sending cards onValentine's Day.
There is a great deal more written
about this special day and I
encourage you to pick up your
encyclopedia and read about it.
If there is a special person in
your life, celebrate him or her in a
special way. I celebrated my
valentine, my husband, Bill.
Is it easy to make it work for so
many years? Not on your life, but
it is a most worthwhile accom-
plishment.
There are times you love that
special someone to death and
there are times you'd actually like
to put him or her to death.
Just remember to think "we, us
and our," and not "me, my and
mine."
To be loved you must be
lovable; it is not your right. It

Aries-March 21-April 19
Your life is filled with positive opportunities and
challenges. The starting point is to make the
best of what you have right now. Finish up or
delegate old projects that have been hanging
first. Then locate. areas of new challenge and
work on the most important ones first. Move
forward every day. Refuse to give up or accept
anything less than the best from yourself. You
know what you want. You can have it all. It just
takes a plan, patience, action and belief in your-
self.


must be earned. It-doesn't take
long to know what buttons to
push and not to push. Learn
what buttons to push. Talk, talk,
talk about feelings, wants, needs,
everything, but not in the heat of
the moment.
Choose your words carefully; ]
you can never erase them.
Timing is everything, and
when anger or resentment
enters the picture that's not the
time to talk. Never lose respect
for the other, because once
respect is gone, love is soon to
follow.
A special candlelight dinner is a
wonderful way to celebrate
Valentine's Day, especially when
eating out is not affordable.
Farm the kids out,-if children
are involved, to friends, relatives
etc., if possible and make an
easy special dinner. Use one of
my recipes, toss a steak on the
grill, get take-out, whatever.
Just set the stage and plan to
make the evening special.
Many years ago, my steady
boyfriend and I spent the
evening of my senior prom at the
Waldorf Astoria in NewYork City.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
If you maintain the present routine, you will
continue to efficiently move your way forward
toward your new goals and challenges. Refuse
to be stuck or get sidetracked. Stick to your main
goals. You have an inexhaustible supply of hope
and goodwill toward others. You always seem to
know when family or associates need a helping
hand. Stay upbeat, with forward momentum
and you will experience many new victories in
the next few months.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
Much truth has been unfolding around you late-
ly. Try to keep a lighter touch when you are not
sure what to do. Patience is a virtue. Then keep
your own life balanced by making some quality
time for yourself each day to read, have fun or
exercise. This keeps your stress level down. No
need to burn out this early in the year. Let others
know in front what you want, need or expect,

Why? Because you are so highly respected.

Smart Shopping:
The Guru's
Money-saving
Tips

Rice-a-Roni came out years ago.
We loved it, but one box
wasn't enough for six
and the cost of two boxes
for a side dish was more than
my budget would allow.
I used an envelope of Lipton's
chicken noodle soup using 3 cups
of water, not the 4 recommended.
In a skillet, lightly brown I cup rice
in a little butter (Smart Balance)
then add the soup mix, water and
a teaspoon of parsley flakes.
Cover and cook until water
is absorbed. If more flavor is needed,
add a packet of chicken bouillon.

One 1-ounce square of baking
chocolate has 12-14 grams
of saturated fat. The benefits
of chocolate are in the powder
not the fat. Use 3-1/2 tbsp. cocoa
powder; it's fat-free
and 1/2 tablespoon (1 1/2 teaspoon)
butter or butter substitute such as
Smart Balance for 1 square
of chocolate. It's.less expensive
and good for you.


ing it. No reason to get upset now. Take things in
stride as they come up. There will always be the
earthly stuff to deal with. Stay in your strong
emotional center and life will work better for
you. With you, it's all about heart and family.
Finding little ways to beautify your home and
surroundings always makes you feel better.
Maybe it's time for a winter cleaning. Why wait
until spring? Seize the day and moment. Now all
is well.
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
You are slowly emerging back into a more bal-

of the strongest signs in the zodiac. Taking a lit-
tle space and making wise choices goes a long
way in fulfilling this goal of balance. No one can
do this for you but you. Sometimes it is just nec-
essary to tell it like it is and let the chips fall. You
don't always have to be all things to all people.

Your foresight and determi-

changes the past year.

setting new goals. Give
yourself enough time to
achieve them, but don't let
them drag on forever. Learn
to live in daylight compart-

future or regret of the past.

inspirations.

you on track and focused.
You are feeling better and
your energy is getting
stronger every day. You
know what you want and
need to do.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You have grown a lot spiritu-
ally in the past few months.
Mars in Capricorn gives you
extra protection, like
guardian angel energy. You
have a great ability to feel
things before they happen.
This gives you an edge. As
your spirit rises, so does
your mental and physical
strength. Keep on taking life
one day at a time. This cre-
ates patience, trust and faith
in the higher power. Now
when you have the universe
working for you there is only
great victory ahead in all you
do.
Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
The sun and Neptune in
Aquarius enhances your
vision and deep creative
urges. Go in, pull theYn out
and set them free. Just


about everything you touch
will turn to gold right now.
You are inspired, your heart
is open and your images are
strong. You have the needed
drive and determination to
set your main projects in
motion and move them for-
ward. Dream big dreams
and you will see yourself
making strong advances
personally and professional-
ly like never before.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
By the time others tune in
and try to copy your actions,
you are so far ahead they
get can't catch you. You
were saved for last in the
zodiac for very special rea-
sons. You are the anchor for
all the others. No one has a
larger sweeter heart. You are
a sign of honor and great
human dignity. Your words
ring true and you have the
ear and trust of other very
important people around
you. And all this is just for
starters about your special
place in life.

Romancing
From page BI
It was a magical evening as
we danced to the big band.
Our dinner that night was
imbedded in my memory
and even at that young age
(when I couldn't cook), I
vowed to someday make it
for my husband. It was
many years before I tried to
duplicate it and he remem-
bered and said it was just as
good as the first time we had
it. It's quick and easy. Since I
can't remember what it was
called, I'll simply give it an
appropriate name.
Renew your commit-
ments. See you next week.

Serves 2
1 pound 1-inch thick
sirloin steak or filet

1 medium-size jar roasted
red peppers,

torn in large segments
Several sprigs fresh Italian
parsley chopped or 1
teaspoon dried
1/2 teaspoon oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
Cut sirloin in 2-inch

Tenderize the sirloin with
meat tenderizer as directed
on jar.
In a large covered skillet
place 1 tablespoon oil. Saute

browned on outside but still
raw inside. Set aside.
Add remaining tablespoon
oil to pan. Saute garlic.
Lower heat; add potatoes
and brown on all sides.

FAT- AND
CHOLESTEROL-FREE
CAKE
When using a cake mix,
substitute applesauce for
the oil, egg substitute or
egg whites (use one extra
egg) for the eggs, add 1
tablespoon flour and
water as the package
directs. Treat pans with
cooking spray.

CHOCOLATE
SHADOW CAKE
1 package devil's food,cake
mix
Marshmallow frosting
Chocolate glaze
Prepare cake mix as
package directs or follow
recipe for fat and choles-
terol-free cake. Bake in two
8-inch or 9-layer cake pans.
Frost with marshmallow
frosting and drizzle around
cake about 2-inches from
the edge with chocolate
glaze.

MARSHMALLOW
FROSTING
When I originally found
this recipe, using a raw egg
white was no problem. With
the threat of salmonella


ever-present, it is best to use
powdered egg whites. They
can be found in the super-
market.
This frosting will not hold
up in high humidity, so
make it in dry weather or
when the air conditioner is
on. It can be tinted with
food coloring if you choose.
It is best to frost the cake no
more than two hours before
serving. Do not refrigerate.
2 egg whites or equivalent
of powdered egg whites
1/4-teaspoon salt
1/4-cup sugar
3/4-cup clear corn syrup
1/4-teaspoon vanilla


a time, beating to firm
peaks. Fold in vanilla.

CHOCOLATE GLAZE
1/2 tablespoon butter (1-
1/2 teaspoons) or butter
substitute
3-1/2 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 cup sifted confection-
er's sugar
2-1/2 tablespoon hot milk
or more
Dash of salt
Melt butter. Sift dry
ingredients together. Mix
with butter and milk. At first
mixture will be stiff. Do not
add any more milk until
blended thoroughly. Add
more milk only if mixture is
too stiff. A glaze must be a
little thinner than a frosting
but not so thin that it runs
down onto the plate.

like excess water and this
can also lead to dry fruit.
Do not be tempted to
water your tree too often
and also remember to
keep the area around the
tree clear of any grasssor
mulch. Any of these ,
circumstances can cause
potentially lethal fungus
diseases.to destroy your
tree. You should also keep
weeds away from the .
base of your trees to be
sure proper drainage is
established.
Another critical
ingredient for good citrus
growth is fertilizer.
Choose a good quality
citrus food that has
minor elements. You also
should apply a minor
element spray that
contains such ingredi-
ents as iron, boron and
manganese.
One mistake many
citrus trees owners do is
try to prune their trees.
The truth is that citrus
trees should never be
pruned. You should just
let the trees shed their
branches naturally.
Thunderstorm winds and
tropical systems will
naturally prune the tree
as it sheds its branches.
For those of you that
have limited yard space
or live in an apartment,
you can purchase dwarf

Do not allow the tree to

the water from your
saucer, if you use one.
SIf you have a balcony,
you can put your tree
outside to get much-

keep it indoors, choose a
location near a sunny
window.

tient, wondering why he
didn't pay attention. It was
Roy who told his primary
care doctor that he noticed
changes. A neurological
consult and tests gave us
the diagnosis. It was a body
blow.
Two years later, Roy has
stabilized. He takes two
medications, Aricept and
Namenda, and he contin-
ues to do well. His world has
narrowed, as he has had to
give up driving and knows
that he cannot do things he
once did.
A senior design engineer
with Rolls Royce Aerospace
in England, Roy is still able
to problem-solve house-
hold dilemmas that leave
me, the spatially- chal-
lenged one, bewildered. But
we have had to make
accommodations.
I must speak more slowly
and explain what I mean in
concrete terms. I see flashes
of brilliance, but they are
bittersweet, because they
remind me of what he
always has been: the
happiest, wittiest, most
charming man I've ever
known. He still is all that,
but it's a little bit more of a
struggle.
When he makes a joke, I
laugh and cry a little,
because Roy's love of life is
so much a part of him.
Today, three years later,
Roy has just returned.from a
three-week trip to England
to visit his children and
grandchildren. We were
both nervous about his,
making the trip alone, but
with careful planning and a
lot of crossed fingers and
hope, he did just fine.
In fact, he told me that he
thinks the trip, which not
only involved an overseas
flight but a 10-hour bus trip
to the very tip of Cornwall,
would be hader for me.
He's probably right!
We have been helped in
this journey by individuals
and organizations that can
help anyone facing the
challenge of Alzheimer's as
a patient or caregiver. ,
I TheAlzheimer'sAssoci r
"tion Web site is a wonderful
source ,of information about
the illness, including
information about diagno,
sis,, treatment, caregiving, t
ongoing research and a host
of other subjects.
The organization main-
tains a helpline that oper-


ates 24 hours a day, seven
days a week: (800) 272-3900.
The Web site is www.alz.org.
Locally, the Southeast
Florida chapter of the
Alzheimer's Association is at
10 SE Central Parkway, Suite
400, Stuart. The phone
number is (800) 861-7826.
Indian River and Brevard
County residents can
contact the Association at
(321) 637-1103.
The Alzheimer's Associa-
tion's Project Safe Return is a
nationwide identification
program that provides
assistance when a person
with a memory disorder
becomes lost.
Assistance is available 24
hours a day, seven days a
week. For the $40 enroll-
ment fee, for which "schol-
arships" may be available
for low-income individuals,
you receive an ID bracelet
and clothing labels. The
bracelet and labels identify
the person as memory-
impaired and gives an ID
number specific to the
patient. They also provide
the toll free number to call if
someone finds your loved
one.
When you report a loved
one missing, local law
enforcement is alerted. For
information, go the
Alzheimer's Association Web
site or call (888) 572-8656.
Alzheimer's' Community
Care provides adult day


care, support groups and
family nurse consultants to
residents of Palm Beach,
Martin and St. Lucie County.
Call (561) 683-2700 or visit
www.alzcare.org. Commu-
nity Care also maintains a
24-hour crisis response
service at (800) 394-1771.
The last three years would
have been much more
difficult without the help
and support of Laura Zel,
licensed clinical social
worker and caregiver
counselor with Just Check-
ing, an agency funded by
the Area Agency on Aging
and State of Florida Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs.
Her support and friend-
ship have made it possible
to get through even the bad
days. The agency serves
Martin, St. Lucie, Indian
River and Okeechobee
counties; call (561) 540-
1376.
The Alzheimer's Associa-
tion's 5K Memory Walk will
be March 31 at Flagler Park
in Stuart. Roy and I are part
of Laura's team, The Support
Groupies. Our team goal is
to raise $5,000; the goal of
the Walk is to reach $100,000
for local Alzheimer's
support services.
Registration begins at 8
a.m.; the walk starts at 9
a.m. For information, to

There are many more
organizations able to
provide assistance to
caregivers and loved ones
bearing the burden of
dementia. I try every day to
be the kind of caregiver for
Roy that he was for me
when I was ill. He has set the
bar so high, but I will
continue to try, reaching out


for help because I know I
can't do it alone. I cherish
every day I have with Roy.
He is my hero as well as my

JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide
each one of these ques-
tions.
Today, let's address the
first two. These are what I
call earthly challenges.
The Spirit Guide column
is devoted to finding
spiritual solutions to
earthly challenges. So,
here is how it goes.
First,'"How can I free the
chains that bind me?"
Let's identify what the
chains are. They are:
anger, disease, guilt, fear,
impatience, addictions,
compulsions, hunger,
judgment, lack of forgive-
ness and sadness that
started out and were
allowed to take root and
grow in the mind and ego.
If these negatives are
allowed to continue to
grow, soon they reach into
the heart and take root.
Sometimes the taproot
can work its way into the
soul. We have allowed
negativity of our own or
others making to enslave
us. We feel powerless over
our own lives. Have you
ever been there? Are you
there now? This condition
can be fixed.
It all comes down to the
choices we make. Feed the
negatives and increase the
negatives. Feed the
positives and increase the.
positives. Wise choices
come when the heart is
open and we listen to and
trust our inner guidance
and gut instincts which
always speak first, before -
the head gets in the way
and talks us out of the.
wonderfiul ner truth.i
The easiest way to
change isito get an idea of
something positive we:
want. Then pull itoutof
the mind ard write it
down. This is like planting
a seed. You can see, feel
and touch the written
words-.
Nothing grows without a
seed. It's been sai'dithat itf

Here are some tips on tipping ou vite
9 ,. -r to Darticipate


T pping has become a
reality in today's travel,
whether you are
traveling on "land only"
packages, i.e. hotel stays, by
motorcoach or cruising. It is
an integral part of your trip
cost and must be accounted
for during the planning stage
of budgeting for your holiday
vacation.
Sometimes it is the littlest
details that confuse us most
when we are on vacation.
When it comes to tipping, I for
one, sometimes scratch my
head wondering just how
much to give someone for a
service provided without
offending them with too little,
or offending myself by giving
too much.
Who should you tip? How
much? Do you need to tip at
all?Well, have no fear, these
few simple guidelines may
help you on when and how
much to tip while on
vacation and at other times.
This way, you will not be
bothered by trivialities and
can focus instead on more

important things, like
enjoying your vacation.

Airports
and train stations
When arriving at airports
and train stations or when
leaving from the airport or
train station, you can feel
comfortable in tipping the
standard porter rate of $1
per bag; perhaps more if
your luggage is very heavy.
If you request assistance

in hailing a taxi, a tip of $1 is
appropriate. This includes
doormen at your hotel. If
more services are requested,
such as assistance with your
bags, you may want to tip
more for these special
services.

At the hotel
Hotel tipping can be
interesting and confusing
with all of the services that
are offered or provided
outright to you.
When you arrive at your
hotel after a long flight, first
things first: tip the taxi or
limo driver. Ten to 15
percent of your total fare is
usually expected; some


cities don't take kindly to the
10 percent tip factor even
for mediocre service, so read
the tea leaves well to avoid
an uncomfortable situation
and consider taking the high
road.
As distasteful as it can
sometimes be, a few
pennies more paid in a tip
to a disgruntled provider
may save you an embarrass-
ing situation. If you drive
your own car, give the valet
parking attendant $1 to $2.
If you take a shuttle van or
bus, tip the driver $2 per
person.

"The less time I spend dealing with
bankers, the more time I can devote
to our company and our clients.
Riverside people know me. They go to great
lengths to make it convenient "


Blanchard
From page B7
more than happy to assist
you with your bags at the
door, should generally
receive $1 to $2 per bag. Tips
are alipropriate when he
shows you to your room and
again if he assists you upon
checkout. Tip more if he
provides any additional
service.


People like Rick Gonzalez make Florida
great For Rick, and for every Riverside
customer, we do whatever we can to help.
That's what we call hometown
banking.


The concierge, who can
get you anything from
dinner reservations to hard-
to-come-by theatre tickets,
deserves a little more for his
or her efforts, generally a $5
to $10 for such feats.
You may certainly choose
to be more generous if the
feat or service performed
was extraordinary. Some-
times it may be appropriate
to tip at the time of service,
but sometimes it also may
be appropriate and conven-
ient to do so at the end of
the trip.
When requesting room
service, add 15 percent of
the bill, but pay careful
attention to the bill to make
certain that a gratuity (often
more than 15 percent) is not
already factored into the
price. If such a gratuity is
already included, you may,
as a token gesture, add $1 or
$2 to the bill; however, this is
not required.
If you requested some-
thing delivered to your
room, such as a hairdryer or
iron, tip $1 per item
received.
Typically, the maid
deserves a $1-$2 tip each
day, as well. Finally, if you
are a frequent visitor to a
specific location or activity,
a $20 tip added to your bill
may serve to ensure good
service on future visits and
throughout your stay.

Tours

automatically included, you
may be comfortable in
tipping the tour guide $1 for
a half-day tour, $2 for full-
day tour and anywhere from
$5-$10 for a weeklong tour.
On a private tour, you
should consider tipping a
private guide more and
consider all of the little
things that were provided or
offered that made your tdur
more enjoyable or informa-
tive.

Cruises
On many cruise lines tips
can be pre-paid according
to a fixed schedule of
tipping designed by the
cruise line. If this option is
not chosen, when on a
cruise, tip according to your
comfort level and only on
the last evening of your
cruise.
As a general rule, dining
. room waiters receive $3.50
per person/per day, whereas
the dining room busboy
should receive $2 per
person/per day. The room
steward, for all his efforts,
receives $3.50 per
person/per day. Other
personnel, such as bar
waiters, bellboys and deck
stewards may be tipped as
service is rendered.

Restaurants
Generally, excellent
service will be rewarded by a
generous tip that ranges
around 20 percent of the
total bill.

However, most restau-
rants in the United States
accept 15 percent as the
standard tip. Unfortunately,
this level tip is expected
even when less than the
expected level and quality of
service is provided.
In restaurants where you
sit at the bar, or where the
waiter plays a small part of
the meal service experience
(cafes or pubs), 10 percent is
acceptable. The bartenders,
themselves, generally
receive between 15 and 20
percent when you sit at the
bar.
If the food or service is
unsatisfactory, speak to the
manager. Don't walk out
without tipping. Also, pay
attention to lunch and
dinner bills at home and
when traveling abroad, as
some restaurants tack on an
additional 15 percent
(usually listed on the menu
or check as a "service
charge") and do not expect
tips.
At fancy restaurants, a tip
between $5 and $10 is in
line with generally accept-
able standards, certainly
more when the restaurant is
full and you have no
reservations. Tip $1 for each
coat checked, and another
50 cents to $1 for restroom
attendants.
As for wine service that
you have requested, opt for
10 percent of the wine bill
and you should be spared
from any raised eyebrows!
from an unhappywine |
steward. : ,
Tippinghas become a
universal activity and is
generally expected by
service providers for each
amenity or service they
render. There are times
when the idea of rewarding
someone.for poor service'
simply because it is expect-
ed can rubius the wrong
way, and it should.
However, wheo such a
situaton arises, if is best to
leave moderate tip an&'
politely infoem the-esa
lishment's-ouaer or manag-
er of the situation that
warranted the less-than-
abundant reward left at your
table. You will actually be
helping the business
maintain its reputation for
quality by so doing.

Spirit
From page B6
begin to see signs that it
has taken root, has a
blessing on it and wants to
bring you the created form
of the idea. You must
surrender it to the uni-
verse, wait and trust the
higher power.
Then, once it has given
birth, rear it like you would
a child and help it grow
strong, bloom, become
fruitful and bring you the
desired rewards.
Now you have created
something of much
greater value than the old
negative habit. Stop
feeding the old habit until
it loses its power over you.
Now you are free at last.
Second, "How Can I Live
a pain free life? There are
many different kinds of
pain. The most common
are physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual.
Sometimes, a slow, dull
achy pain can set in our
bodies and we don't even
know we have it. Pain is
caused by a short circuit in
our electrical nerve
system. If you were to
touch the two polls of a
battery together, it would
quickly burn out and lose
all of its energy charge.
The same with the body.


I am not a doctor and can't'
give medical advice, but I
do know that pain in the
neck, back, hips or legs is
usually caused by the
bones being out of joint
and putting pressure on
the nerves. Getting the
bones back in place and
strengthening the muscles
that surround them is the
first step toward relieving
the pain.
Then, this newfound
well-being makes the
mind and heart work
better. You have more
energy and feel younger.
Other'areas in the body
now have a chance to
regenerate and heal. Your
spirit comes alive and
begins to bring up new
ideas for an active new life.
Now it's time to create new
causes that give you a
"chain-free and pain-free
life."
Isn't this the way you
truly want to live? You can
do it. You were born to live
a long, healthy, pain-free,
abundant and happy life.
No one can do this for you
but you. The potential
lives inside you. Go in,
bring it out and set it free.
Once this high quality
life is on the way; you will
begin to find true love,
respect, honor and human
dignity. You are an heir to
the unlimited riches of the


universe.
First, take care of your
own and family needs first.
You did most of the hard
work to get here.
Next save for a secure
future.
Then give back to those
who inspired you and were
a light unto your path.
Take care of your spiritual
family and help keep them
going. Then when others
hungry to learn see your
light, give back. Teach
them. Keep the timeless
truths going. This rippling
effect is the hope of the
world today and in the
future.
From it emerges love,
peace, health, abundance,
faith, joy and renewed life.
One person can make a
difference. That person is
you.
My greatest desire is that
you find all these things
and more, today and for all
your future days to come.
The greatest news is that
the best is yet to come.
More next week.

Jerry Rose original up for auction


| r "r i at Humane Society fundraiser
(*A **' ^ fJ w11


Photo courtesy of Humane Society of the Treasure Coast
Local artist Jerry Rose will donate an original egg tempera
painting, such as this piece, titled "Pieces of Eight," for the
Feb. 18 "High Stakes at the Sands Paws and Claws Gala
2007," a Humane Society fundraiser.


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

A painting by Jerry Rose
is a treasure in the collec-
tions of many discriminat-
ing art aficionados. Mr.
Rose only produces origi-
nals and his work is often
sold before it is even fin-
ished.
When Suzanne Kissling
approached him about a
painting for the Feb. 18
"High Stakes at the Sands
Paws and Claws Gala 2007"
his response was positive
and very generous.
Mr. Rose offered to paint
with egg tempera, a time
consuming medium,
which requires great fore-
thought and produces
extraordinary results.
Mr. Rose has a waiting
list for his tempera paint-
ings, which sell for around
$20,000.
Made with egg yolk,
water and powder pig-


ment, tempera gives the
artist a wide range of flexi-
bility to capture skin tones
and the subtleties of the
landscape.
Primarily a figurative
painter, Mr. Rose often
paints Bahamian people
and scenes, such as the
young girl in the painting


he is donating titled
"Pieces of Eight."
Mr. Rose's painting will
be sold at a live auction.
This year's theme will be
reminiscent of the days
when the infamous "Rat
Pack" played in Las Vegas.
The fundraiser will fea-
ture a silent and live auc-


tion, after-dinner casino
games and great entertain-
ment.
The gala will be held at 6
p.m. at the newly
redesigned clubhouse at
Harbour Ridge Yacht and
Country Club.

The new owners Craig

in the fireplace room that

"We selected the art from

Mr. Kingston. "Most of the

we love how it adds to the
feeling of our restaurant."
The keyboard player
filled the air with classic
soft rock and island tunes
that were the perfect vol-
ume for the setting and
mood.
Our waitress suggested a
glass. of Kendall-Jackson
chardonnay to sip on with
our fresh-out-of-the-oven
rolls and butter, while we
looked over the menu.
For appetizers we
ordered the escargot and
mussels a-la-marinara. The
escargot (snails)
were baked in garlic butter
and breadcrumbs then
served with wedges of gar-
lic toast. They came out siz-
zling hot and Charles ate
most of them before I could
sample. They were scrump-
tious.
I nibbled; OK I gobbled
down, the mussels a-la-
marinara. If you have never
ventured out to try mussels,
Taste is the place to try
them. I was in heaven. The
butter garlic white wine
sauce really gave them a
snap in flavor.
Each entree is accompa-
nied by a dinner salad or a
hot cup of homemade
soup.
We chose the clam chow-
der, which was hot, spicy,
full of clams and just the
perfect size.
Mr. Kingston informed us
that their customers come
in just to order the Savanna


Gorgonzola salad, so we
decided to split the special-
ty salad.
By Charles' third bite, he
looked at me and said,
"This is the best salad I
have ever had in my life."
It was.
The granny smith apples,
walnuts, sun-dried cran-
berries and' Gorgonzola
cheese over greens about
sent you to the moon. And,
Chef John's homemade
creamy balsamic dressing
made the salad ingredients
come together with a
refreshing touch.
For the main course,
Charles ordered the
macadamia nut-crusted
grouper and I selected the
grilled 12-ounce pepper-
corn crusted NewYork strip
steak.
Both entrees came out
piping hot.
I appreciated that the
Chef prepared my steak
exactly the way I wanted -
medium rare. The juicy,
robust piece of beef was
seared to perfection and
exploded with flavor.
Mashed potatoes accom-
panied the beef along with
lightly steamed fresh veg-
etables. It was a lot of food.
The sweet, flaky and
white filet of grouper was at
least one inch thick. What
set this entree apart was the
macadamia nut-crusted
coating saut6ed with a

wild rice pilaf and steamed
vegetables. We felt like we
were eating something
naughty, because it was so
delicious. But, in reality it
was a very healthy meal. We
thoroughly enjoyed this
entree.
The waitress encouraged
us to try the homemade
triple layer"fudge cake. The
raspberry filling oozed out
of the center while the thick
fudge frosting wrapped
around the moist fudge
cake. Shall I say more? It
was the perfect ending to a
wonderful dinner.

surgery, he will make an
appearance at the event
to help The Children's
Place at Home Safe, a safe
haven for the care and
treatment of abused,
abandoned, neglected,
and drug exposed infants
and children.
"Clarence has been a
friend and a locker mem-
ber of our store for years,"
Mr. Dababneh said. "He


has a home in the area
and is able to be here for
this charity. We're very
happy to help."
Only 1, 000 tickets will
be sold to the event, .
which features : drinks,
fine food from "Chef
Richard," the Smoke Inn's
caterer; delicacies from
the John Bull English Pub;
a variety of beer, wine and
spirits; ice cream from
Cold Stone Creamery and
breads from Panera.
Guests will each receive
a souvenir duffle bag with
gift items, a program
guide and coupons to be


redeemed at cigar manu-
facturers' booths for free
cigars.
Mr. Dababneh said the
cigars alone have a value
of $275.
Tickets for the event are
$125 in advance and $150
at the door, if tickets

Falcons silence


Tigers' roar


BY MATTHEw DEWHURST
Sports writer
Late in the fourth
quarter of the basketball
game between Jensen
Beach and Martin
County High School, the
Tigers had a chance to
swing momentum to
their side. .Tigers guard
Ronnie Nelson stole the
ball from the Falcons
Monte Holmes, and
took off down the other
way.
Not to be showed up
before the home crowd,
Holmes raced down the
court after his mistake.
As Nelson went for what
should have been an
easy two points, Holmes
jumped with him and
blocked the shot at the
last second.
That play represented
the determination
Jensen Beach has shown
all season, and especial-
ly down the stretch of a.
thrilling 54-51 victory
over rival Martin Coun-
ty, Feb. 2.
"That's just that never-
say-die attitude. I don't
know where that block
came from, you couldn't
have timed it any more
perfectly without foul-
ing," said Falcons head
coach Eric Smith. "He
realized he let one go,
and he was going to do
anything he could to get
it back."


With a seven-point
lead, and less than three
minutes in the game, it
looked as though the
Falcons had finally
shaken the Tigers.
But Martin County
stormed back. Ridge
Graham's fastbreak
dunk at the two-minute
mark tied the score at
49, and sent the Martin
County faithful into a
frenzy.
The two teams would
go back and forth the
next 90 seconds until
Falcon senior Adam
Powell sank two foul
shots with 11 seconds
left to put Jensen Beach
up 52-51. Powell then
would steal the ball on
the ensuing Tiger pos-
session, and Joe Sclafari
would hit two more free
throws with three sec-
onds left to secure the
victory.
Powell and fellow sen-
ior James Love led the
Falcons with 15 points
apiece, while junior
point guard Sclafari
added 10. But it was
Powell's 9 points in the
fourth quarter that was
the difference.
"Once you know the
game is on the line,
someone has to step
up," said Powell "It's all
about senior leadership.

Both teams struggled to
find a rhythm to start the
game, but the slow start
seemed to affect Jensen
Beach more than Martin
County, which continued
to work and change their
attack to score points. In


the second quarter, the
Tigers finally got a break
when Jensen's smother-
ing defense backfired. A
loose-ball collision at the
top of the key sent Martin
County standout Ricky
Warren to the line. After
hitting his free throws,
Warren stole the ball on
the next possession,
scored a layup and was
fouled again. Warren

School supporters cheer
as Adam Powell (No. 10)
sinks a foul shot that
keeps his team ahead of

seconds of the teams'
regular season. Jensen

again made the free
throw, giving the Tigers a
25-22 lead going into the
half.
But Martin County
couldn't hold that
momentum in the end,
and had to watch the
Jensen Beach student
body rush the court and
celebrate as though they
had just won the state
championship.
"It was a roller coaster.
The ball makes some
crazy bounces some-
times and it didn't
bounce in our favor down
the stretch," said Tiger's
head coach Andre McIn-
tyre. "I don't think the
best team won. We had
opportunities in the end,
but we- didn't close out
the way we should of."

Tigers
From page D2
Martin County (17-6)
played without leading
scorer Anthony Raimon-
di, who is serving a two
game suspension after
receiving two technical
fouls against Fort Pierce
Central two days earlier.
McIntyre said that the
loss of Raimondi wasn't a
factor in the game, point-
ing out that his team
almost won. The Tigers
entered the District 14-
5A tournament this week
as the fourth seed.
With the win, Jensen
Beach (21-1) rebounded
from its first, and only,
defeat of the regular sea-
son, a 52-44 loss to Vero
Beach in the Treasure
Lakes Championship.
After the loss, the Falcons
started to hear some crit-
ics talk about their
strength of schedule and
that they were riding high
in a weak district. But the
win against cross-town
rival Martin County
might not only have
silenced those critics, but
forced them to re-exam-
ine the Falcons as they
enter the postseason.
"I think it solidifies (our
record) more than any-
thing. We're really start-
ing to become a basket-
ball program. Not just a
basketball team," said
Smith.
Jensen Beach emerged
as an athletic power last
year when its boy's soccer
team won the state title,
but never had the school
had such a high profile
win against the original
county school.

Kicking


for the

future

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Midway through the
first quarter of a game
against the East Coast
Reapers, Fort Pierce Fire
kicker Fabrizio Scaccia
lined up for what was
supposed to be a 55-yard
field goal.
But just before he set
the spot for the kick, Fab-
rizio paused, looked up
in the stands, spotted his
brother Massimo and
smiled. The younger
brother.' by two years,'
Fabrizioc stepped back
just one yard, making the
attempt 56-yard field
goal.
Normaly, a" kicker
would never want an
attempt to be longer
than it had to be, but this
was different. You see, on
top of being brothers,
Fabrizio, who is 22, and
Massimo,,who is 24, are
also rival kickers. By
making the 56-yard field
goal, Fabrizio knew he
would beat his older
brother's record of 55..
"In the back of my
mind, I was like 'my
brother made 55, I need
to make this,"' Fabrizio
said.
He nailed the kick and
pointed to the stands in
celebration.

sidelines when the Fire

Columnist'survives' tough week at golf show


Wll, the best week
of the year has
drawn to a close.
My week with the "guys"
at the 2007 PGA Merchan-
dise Show in Orlando is
over. While my week may
have been hectic, running
to-and-fro, I will try to
slow things down a bit as I
tell you a little of my story
of the week that was.
The week began in
proper fashion as I woke
up early on Tuesday and
traveled up Florida's
Turnpike to the north end
of Orlando and the Legacy
Course at Alaqua Lakes.
Here I would get my week
started on the right foot by
playing in the Tour Edge
multi-media golf event.
I was one of many
writers who dropped into
town a couple days prior
to the show's opening to
get in a little golf, obtain
some information on new
products before some of
our colleagues and prop-
erly set our minds for the
task at hand.
In addition to golf, we
were treated to demon-
strations and hands-on
testing of products from
Tour Edge, Medicus, Sun
Mountain, Sky Golf, Etonic
and Check & Go. Tour
Edge's new Geo Max
driver, featuring high MOI
to resist twisting when you
hit your drive out on the
toe or near the heal, was
my favorite. The ball wants
to do nothing more than
go straight off this club.
How welcome is that?
My group was fortunate
enough to pick up Roger
Gunn, a top-100 instruc-
tor, as a partner. Between
Roger's tips and the fun we
were having as a team, we
found ourselves tied for
first place at the end of the
day.
After enjoying some fine
food and beverages after
our round, we were off to
Taylor Made's kick-off
party at Universal Studios.
It was here that Taylor
Made unwrapped its two
newest drivers, the R7

SuperQuad and the
Burner.
After a few more cigars
and some tasty hors
d'oeuvres, it was off to my
"home" for the week.
Over the years, I have
found that the better the
place I find to put up my
feet, the better my cover-
age of the show. This year
was no exception. My host
resort was CRS Hotel's new
Lake Buena Vista Resort
and Spa just a hop from
the intersection of State
Road 535 and Internation-
al Drive. (www.lakebue-
navistaresortorlando.com;

Lake Buena Vista Resort
Village and Spa offers 325
residences, with your
choice of two, three or

condominiums. My
eighth-floor condo was

private balcony overlook-
ing the swimming pool
and hot tub, a full kitchen,
spacious living room and a
huge master bedroom
complete with a jacuzzi
Roman tub. Or, as one of
my roommates said to me,
"You have a swimming
pool complete with the
Swedish bikini swim team
in there!"
I cannot stress enough
the need to have a place to
rest my weary bones after
a day of playing golf,
testing new equipment or
walking the miles of aisles
at the show. That hot tub
beside the pool and the
whirlpool tub in my
bedroom were a blessing.
For relaxing with the
guys, we had a huge 55-
inch HD television to
catch up on the news and


golf from around the
world.
In the lobby, I found a
computer that guests
could.use to retrieve e-
mails, handle banking
chores back home and so
forth, or I could use the
free wireless internet in
the room. There is also a
large clubhouse with retail
stores, two restaurants, a
pair of lounges and a bar
pool. Other amenities
included a children's
playground, a full service
spa, game room, and
heated pool and hot tub.
If you ever complain of
not having anything to do
here, it's your own fault. Of
course, sometimes doing
nothing is exactly what
you want.

Pirates, but an intercep-
tion ended that chance.
So even though Massimo
hit field goals of 27 and
36 yards in the game, and
Fabrizio's only action
resulted in a botched
snap on an extra point,
he still earned bragging
rights.
"I want my team to win,

but if it came down to
that last field goal for him
to win the game and beat
my team, I would hope he
make it," said Fabrizio. "I
would never wish for him
to miss. Never."
The Scaccia brothers
were born to Italian
immigrants in New York,
but moved to Port St.
Lucie When Massimo was
8 and Fabrizio was 6.
Growing up in an Italian

rizio were avid soccer
players. It wasn't until
Massimo's junior year at
St. Lucie West Centennial
High School that he even
thought about playing
football.
Two games into the sea-
son, friends of his on the
football team asked him
to just try to see if he
could make a field goal.
The soccer player didn't
know how to kick a foot-
ball, but tried it anyway.

"They said cdme out
and kick for us, please. So
one day I went out there,
I had on regular shoes
and jeans, and I nailed a
50-yarder. I didn't know
that was good or any-
thing," Massimo said. "So
I played two games on
junior varsity, went up to
varsity, and was the
starter ever since."
With just a year and a
half of football experi-
ence, Massimo was
received a scholarship to
play for Avila University
in Kansas City.
After Massimo left, Fab-
rizio stepped up to fill the
void his brother left at
Centennial. Fabrizio had
never thought of playing
football, but figured if his
brother could do it, why
couldn't he.
"I took his locker, his
number, I pretty much


followed in his foot-
steps," said Fabrizio.
Four years later, he had
earned a scholarship to
play at the University of
South Carolina. However,
that dream was never ful-
filled because the Game-
cocks retraced their offer
when his grades started
to slip. Fabrizio was stuck
in Port St. Lucie, not
knowing what to do next.
"I thought I had it in the
bag, I was cocky and a
senior. My grades
dropped and they didn't
want me any more
because of the grades,"
Fabrizio said. "(Massimo)
was in college, I was just
working. I wasn't playing
football at all. I heard
they were starting this
new semi-pro team, and I
was like, 'ya know what,
I'll try out.'"
He quickly became the

starting kicker for the
Fire, and now with his
brother back from college
and playing for the
Pirates, he has never
been so focused on kick-
. ing and trying to get to
the next level.
The two practice three
times a week at Sports-
man's Park in Port St.
Lucie for at least 1-1/2
hours at a time. They go
through game situations,
practice field goals, extra
points and kickoffs. It is
very important for a kick-
er to stay in shape and
keep kicking because any
time off not only affects
their physical abilities,
but also their kicking
mentality.
"It's all about how you
view the field goal poles.
When you don't go out
there for a month, a 50-
yarder looks like a 70-
yarder. But when you go
out there a lot and prac-
tice, a 50-yarder looks
like a chip shot," said
Massimo. "It's 80 percent
mental, 20 percent physi-
cal."
Although the two have
in-game records of 55
and 56-yards, they rou-
tinely hit shots in prac-
tice from 65 and beyond.
Massimo's record is 70,
while Fabrizio boasts one
of 75. With all the ability,
and stats to back it up,
the brothers are just hop-
ing to get noticed while

Rio salon offers full-service style with a smile

RIO Anyone who has Ms. Harsh has owned "She was a very good
n the movie "Steel the salon for 15 ears friend of mine
"
d ias Ms


Magnolias" will agree that
the five .lovely ladies of
Beachcomber Hair and
Nail in Rio are just as
energetic and fun.
"We each have our own
rooms that match our
personalities," said Ms.
Harsh. "We are colorful
and fun."
As a full service salon,
Beachcomber offers
everything a person could
want in one day of pam-
pering including hair,
nails, waxing, massage,
aromatherapy, mani-
cures, and pedicures.
"I have been doing hair
since I was 15 years old,"
said Ms. Harsh. She is a
color specialist and spe-

moving it into a refur-
bished house just across
from Langford Park. She
enjoys having the women
with her at Beachcomber
and encourages a festive
atmosphere.
The Beachcomber has
also served the area's
celebrities. Ms. Harsh
enjoyed styling local leg-
end Frances Langford's
hair for over 20 years. The
two became good friends.
"She would come in
Friday at 1 p.m."
The enthusiasm of the
ladies shows in the salon's
decor. Old photos and
advertisements can be
seen throughout the
salon. There are even
photos of the late Ms.
Langford.


Harsh. "I miss her com-
ing in."
Another celebrity that
makes an annual trip to
the Beachcomber is Santa
Claus, who gets his hair
cut there every year after
Christmas
Each room is different,
but all invite the guest to
relax and enjoy the atten-
tion. A trip to
Beachcomber Hair and
Nail in Rio, is like a trip to
the day spa and a night
out with the ladies all
wrapped into one.
Beachcomber Hair and
Nail is located at 2370 NE
Dixie Hwy in Jensen

Langford Park.

Kickers
From page D6


playing in Southern
States Football League.
"When I was in college,
people were always
telling me, 'why are you
here?' Now I'm with the
Pirates, and people are
like, 'why are you here?'
Massimo said. "I know I
can make it, I just need a
shot."
Both have had tryouts
with teams in the.Arena
League and Canadian
Football League. Massi-
mo even tried out for the
Kansas City Chiefs, but
was so nervous that it
was his first real tryout,
he didn't do well. Now he
has a number of tryouts
under his belt and with
the hiring of agent Jake
Kivisto, is preparing for ap
shot at NFL mini camps
and the NFL draft in
April.
Fabrizio is in a different
situation. Without any
college experience,
teams have been hesitant
to sign him. He quit his
job at the Wal-Mart dis-
tribution plant this to
focus on kicking and
school full time. His goal
is to get his grades up
enough to get a shot at
college football in the
fall..
"I tried out for the
Tampa Bay Storm and
dominated. Completely
dominated. I hit the net
every time on kickoffs, I
was making field goals
the whole length of the
field. But (teams) won't
touch you if you don't go
to college," Fabrizio said.
"They pulled me` 'to the
side and said'listen, you
go to school, and you'll
go anywhere you want to
afterwards with that leg.'
"So I'm going to keep
playing for the fire and
working and in August
maybe I'll be some-


where." .
Both brothers might
have big plans for later
this year, but that doesn't
mean they are looking
past the current season.
Like most brothers, Fab-
rizio. and Massimo are
very competitive, and
have the Pirates and Fire
rematch on March 10 at
Lawnwood Stadium cir-
cled on their calendars.
While it isn't clear
where the Scaccia broth-
ers will be in a few
months, it is clear is that
it probably won't be play-
ing minor league football
on the Treasure Coast.
And that's just fine with
them.
Said Massimo. "I don't
want to look 15 years
down the line and say, 'I
wish I had tried.'"

is just one of many
resorts that CRS Hotels
operates across the
United States, the
Caribbean, Mexico,
Europe, Asia and Aus-
tralia. Chances are if you
are traveling, CRS has a
place for you to rest your
head.
Loading up the car on
Sunday to head home
was not easy. My body
was telling me to take
one last dip in the pool
or to relax one more time
in the hot tub or enjoy
one last massage. Bid-
ding goodbye to my
roommates and heading
home was not easy.
That was only the
beginning of the week.
Wednesday we spent
time at Callaway's media
event, hit the Demo Day
and tested even more
clubs arid accessories.
Then the show itself


began on Thursday.
Between Thursday and
Sunday morning, I
walked too many miles
to count, hit more clubs
that I ever have, enjoyed
a couple fantastic meals
and some great compa-
ny. In all it was one
fantastic week.
In the weeks that
follow, I'll take you with
me as I relive this past
week. Perhaps you'll
discover a club or acces-
sory that will help you to
more enjoy the game. But
for now, that is all. I am
completely exhausted
and I need to return to
my "real" job in the
morning.
