On March 14, about 10
members of the Treasure
Coast Pirates minor
league football team
showed up to. Guy Davis
Field in Stuart in a final
attempt to save their
team.
But their efforts proved
futile, as the decision to
cancel the rest of the sea-
son and disband the team
had been made just hours
before they showed up.
The Treasure Coast
Pirates franchise was
done.
"It looks like this is it for
the Treasure Coast
Pirates," Pirates head
coach Mo Hamilton said
while standing on the
vacant football field on
10th street in Stuart. "I'm
very disappointed how
the season ended. More
so for the kids who use
this as a springboard for
college. Plus it keeps a lot
of guys off the streets."
At around 2 p.m. on the
15th, Southern States
Football League commis-
sioner Dave Rice received
a call from Pirates owner
and former head coach
Brian Roberson stating
that the team was folding,
and they were meeting
that night to discuss the
future. Rice made several
calls to Roberson over the
next few hours but was
unable to make contact.
After talking with the
Pirates' opponent for that
Saturday's game, the
Magic City Bulls, a 4:45
p.m. deadline was set for
Roberson to get back in
touch with the commis-
sioner's office or the
Pirates last two regular
season games would be
canceled.
When that time came
and went with no word
from Roberson, Rice had
no choice but to issue an
email to all league owners
announcing that the
Pirates were no longer.
"I was very surprised
that they folded so late in
the year especially since
they had such an excel-
lent appearance against
the Polk County War
Eagles a few weeks ago
(Feb. 24)," said Rice. "I did
not know however that
their owner was not there
and he hadn't been there
for some time. Things like

Major drug bust


in Martin County


By RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART A Martin
County Sheriff's drug
string, dubbed "Operation
Mexican Snow," netted 49
arrests and $2.2 million
worth of cocaine over the
weekend.
When the undercover
operation began in
November, 2006, detec-
tives from the Special
Investigations Division's
Street Crimes Unit of the
Martin County Sheriff's
Office were targeting
street level drug sales.
In the course of their
investigations, however,
they located the suppliers
of the drugs arid discov-
ered they were an organ-
ized group of Mexicans
living primarily in the


Golden Gate and Salerno
areas of the county.
Assisting in the sting
were other members of
the Sheriff's Office, the
State Attorney's Office for
the 19th judicial circuit,
and the Drug Enforce-
ment Agency.
"As of (March 19), a
total of 49 arrests have
been made," said Sheriff
Robert Crowder.
"Approximately 48
pounds of cocaine with a
street value of $2.2 million
was seized, along with six
firearms, fourteen vehi-
cles and $32,000 in U.S.
currency," he said.
Sheriff Crowder said
that the investigation
began on the street level,
but ended up uncovering

that so players that had a
money problem could
still play."
Rice said he tells all his
owners to not play anyone
who hasn't paid the fee to
avoid those situations.
But Roberson said that if
he cut people who didn't
pay on deadline he
wouldn't be able to field a
team.
"Normally players who
don't show, up for practice
get cut. But if we cut play-
ers for practice and cut
players for money, we
wouldn't have a team,"
said Roberson. "My whole
thing was keeping them
from getting in trouble.
Having them play football
is still better then getting
them in trouble."
In February he brought
a flow chart to practice
showing that even with
everyone paying up, the
team would still fall

son. When no one paid

like me on alert."
Treasure Coast, a mem-
ber of the seven-year-old
SSFL, was formed in 2005
by Roberson, who was
then the head coach of
the Fort Pierce Fire. The
team has struggled the
last two years to gain a
local following. It is
believed that the lack of
support hurt the fran-
chise's ability to maintain
a solid financial base in
which to finish out its sea-
son.
According to Roberson,
the decision to fold the
Pirates was not made by
him this spring, but .by his
players at the start of the
season.
Last year Roberson fin-
ished the season $30,000
in debt and he knew his
struggles would continue
if he didn't get financial
support from his players
in the team's second sea-
son.
SSFL players are not


paid and must pay
between $300-500 to play
for the year. Roberson
charged his players $260,
excluding linemen who
paid $160. But even those
fees were hard to get from
his players Roberson said.
And warnings to his play-
ers starting back in Octo-
ber seemed to go
unheard, as very few play-
ers actually paid the
money. On top of fees,
players were supposed to
sell five season tickets and
get one sponsor each.
According to Roberson,
no player did either.
"We had had lots of
players who never paid.
Since I was kind of lax
with payment deadlines
some players never paid
and, financially, I couldn't
afford it anymore," said
Roberson. "I was the main
finance of that team
while the majority of
teams have two owners.
The fees were some of the
lowest in the leagues. I did

At least one Treasure
Coast resident thinks it's
pretty cool that Mr. Burris
is on the show.


"My grandmother lives
in Stuart," said-Mr. Burris.:
"She's a fan of the radio
show, and one day she was
at the car wash where the
station was being played.
She thought it was the
neatest thing that she
could hear my voice on the
radio."
Ms. Phillips is a native
New Yorker who says she
will never lose the accent
that immediately gives her
home state away.
When she decided to try
a career in radio, she took
a nine-month accelerated
course in broadcasting
technology and television
production at Bauder Col-
lege.
"The course was so
intense, if you missed a
day, it was like missing a
week," said Ms. Phillips.
Originally hired as an
office manager for Coast
101.3, she was asked to fill
in as a guest co-host for an
announcer who was on
maternity leave.
Her rapport with Mr.
Coles was immediately
apparent, and the on-air
personality of Lady Lee
was born.
"Our connection was
undeniable," said Ms.
Phillips.
Mr. Coles moved from
Southern New Jersey to
Florida in 1974, shortly
after his high school grad-
uation. He first worked at a
country music station in
Fort Meyers.
"You have to start some-
where," he said.
Stints at radio stations in
Fort Lauderdale and West
Palm Beach followed. He
has been at Coast 101.3
the past four years.
Their on-air program
runs from 6 to 9 a.m., but
their day begins much ear-
lier.
Ms. Phillips is responsi-
ble for news segments,
and begins her day at 4:30
to prepare the stories she
will read on-air.
Mr. Coles "runs the
board" while on air, mean-
ing he is constantly taking
calls, programming the

STUART Their pace is
frantic, their wits are
quick, and their rapport is
Undeniable.
They call themselves
"The Breakfast Flakes,"
and they are the early-
morning disc jockeys on
radio station WHLG Coast
101.3.
George Coles and Lano-
ra Phillips, known as Mr. G
and Lady Lee to their lis-
a teners, have been waking
up Treasure Coast resi-
dents with a smile since
they began working
together three years ago.

mix, and delivered with
off-the-cuff humor, are the
fe sports segments, which
*JS are called into the station
by Lenny Davis.
Mr. Davis is a full-time
St. Lucie County deputy
A".,,x sheriff who ,began his
-- S radio stint as a listener and
made occasional calls to
Mr. Coles to discuss sports
in the morning.
His ad-libbing worked
so well, he became anoth-
er member of the Break-

"I would call in periodi-
cally, and it turned into an
on-going thing," said Mr.
Davis. "It's ad-lib, it's noth-
ing scripted." '
Coast 101.3 has a part-
"*', nership with WPBF News
25, through which the tele-
vision station's weather-
4 man Eric Burris reports
the weather during the
Breakfast Flakes program.
Mr. Burris is impressed
with the camaraderie of
A; the Breakfast Flakes.
"The coolest thing I
noticed is that they are
iZ- such regular people," said
Mr. Burris. "I think their
show is so different than
anything I've ever heard
because they don't try to
be what they're not. They
are who they are, and it's
very cool to hear a couple
of regular people on the
air."

Pictured with Ms. Tracy, the drama teacher at Pinewood Elementary School in Stuart, are the Pinewood Players. The
students are rehearsing for their presentation of 'Aladdin.' The performances will be held March 26 and 27 at 6 p.m. in
the school auditorium, with a school performance at 8 a.m. on March 29.


Drama teacher gives a decade of devotion


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
STUART For 10 years
Tracy Basile has been
uncovering hidden talent
at Pinewood Elementary
School in Stuart.
Even the most bashful of
the bunch come out a
shining star in her pro-
gram.
Mrs. Basile started the
Pinewood Players in 1997,
when her daughter was in
third grade.
She has been teaching
drama at the school ever
since.
"The school did not
have a drama program so I
started one," said Ms.
Tracy, "I love the interac-
tion of kindergarten stu-
dents through fifth-


graders on the stage. Every
child is equal out there. I
love watching them come
out and perform."
One kindergarten stu-
dent, Eliza Juarez, 6, said
she likes how Ms. Tracy
teaches her how to dance
and act on stage.
"I like to dance and she
does funny things," said
Eliza. "She shows me how
it is supposed to be done."
Eliza said she was excit-
ed to be in this play.
Once a year the
Pinewood Players perform
a spring musical. They
begin rehearsal right after
Christmas break and meet
after school every Tuesday
and Thursday from 2 to
3:20 p.m.
Ms. Tracy said some
years she has had to con-


duct a lottery for casting
parts because so many
children wanted to be in
the production.
"It's hard to turn any one
of them down," she said.
"If we have to do the lot-
tery, we pick names from
hats to be fair. This year it
wasn't necessary, we had
enough room for each and
every one."
The spring production
this year is a musical selec-
tion of singing, dancing
and acting from the play
Aladdin.
Rosemary Lambert, a
parent and volunteer coor-
dinator, has had four of her
children in the Pinewood
Players.
She said her first-grader,
Christina, 6, has thrived in
her program.


"Ms. Tracy is amazing,"
Mrs. Lambert said. "She
shares her talent and time
and the kids just love her.
They especially love her
funny movements and
expressions. She gets even
the most bashful student
to bloom on stage. She's
very creative."
Mrs. Lambert said Ms.
Tracy really allows the stu-
dents to hiourish in the arts
by allowing them to be
part of the costume cre-
ations as well.
"Ms. Tracy sends home a
basic costume piece with
each player for them to
design," Mrs. Lambert
said. "She allows room for
their own personality and
creativity to come through.

Polk County man charged in deaths
resulting from Martin County crash
Benny Arzolo Martinez, 44, of Haines City, was
charged on March 14 with two counts of DUI
manslaughter, the result of a crash on Beeline Highway
in western Martin County on Feb. 13.
Mr. Martinez, whose blood alcohol level was 0.275 at
the time of the accident, tried to pass Chester Magaro,
63, who was driving a Dodge Dakota with Noredys
Gomez, 50 as his passenger.
Without enough room to pass the Dodge, Mr. Mar-
tinez clipped an oncoming Volkswagen, the driver of
which was not injured.
Mr. Magaro veered to avoid the Dodge and Volkswa-
gen and in the process collided head-on with a van
driven by Michael Suttkis, 64, of Leesburg. Mr. Suttkis
was flown to St. Mary's Medical Center with serious
injuries.
Mr. Magaro and Ms. Gomez both of Fort Laud-
erdale, died at the scene.
Mr. Martinez was also injured in the accident and
was flown to St. Mary's Medical Center. He was
released the next day.
Mr. Martinez had two prior DUI arrests and an arrest
for public drunkenness.

South Florida Water Management
District clarifies water restrictions
The South Florida Water Management District, after
declaring a severe water shortage, imposed tight.
restrictions on areas of Martin and St. Lucie counties.
However, Linette Trabulsy, lead community outreach ,
and community specialist for SFWMD, acknowledged
that residents may be confused about whether their
homes fall under those restrictions.
"Individuals that are affected are those who are agri-
cultural users in Martin and St. Lucie counties, and
those residents who may be using the canal system to
irrigate their lawns. Those are the folks who fall under
the restrictions," said Mrs. Trabulsy.
Although those affected are in the minority, Mrs. Tra-
bulsy said that water conservation is something that all
residents should practice twelve months a year.
"We don't want to portray the message that it's a free-
for-all," she said. "Everyone should be concerned with
water conservation."

changes to its DUI arrest
polices.
After reviewing input
from Mothers Against
Drunk Driving, Crime
Watch of Stuart, members
of the community and a


committee comprised of
police officers and super-
visors, the department's
policy now stipulates that
impaired drivers will be
charged with driving
under the influence when-
ever probable cause is
present.
Stuart Police Depart-
ment spokesman Sgt.


Marty Jacobsen said Chief
of Police Edward Morley
met with several organiza-
tions.
"The chief got input
from them as to what they
would like to see the policy
be," said Sgt. Jacobsen.
"Our policy has always
been to get the drunk driv-
ers off the road. But we got


into a situation where we
didn't have enough man-
power'when one of three
people who were stopped
and got rides home that
night was an off-duty
police officer," he said.
"Our officers no longer
have that discretion."
The new policy, which
went into effect Feb. 9,


came about after criticism
the department received in
late December, when off-
duty Jupiter police officer
Jeff Spraur was suspected
of drunk driving and given
two traffic tickets and the
chance to get a ride home.
At the time, Stuart police
defended their action by

After catching several
waves about 40 yards off
shore, he dove underwa-
ter. Suddenly, he felt
something sink its teeth
into his right arm.
Still underwater and try-
ing to fight with his right
hand, he realized he was
fighting with a shark.
After several seconds,
the shark let go, and Mr.
McMichael began yelling
for help as he surfaced.
Several bystanders ran
to help him as someone
called 911.
When Martin-County
Fire Rescue arrived, they
transported him to Martin
Memorial Medical Center
in Stuart, where-he under-
went surgery to reconnect
his nerves and repair an
artery.
For the rescue team, the
call was all in a day's work.
"We get a couple of
these calls a year," said
Martin County Fire Rescue
district chief James Loffre-
do. "It's a traumatic call
just like anything else. The
only difference is if the
person is not on land yet
when we arrive, but usual-
ly they are," he said.
The emergency respon-
ders have good reason to
be prepared for such
events.
In June of last year, a
nine-year-old girl from
Pennsylvania was severely
bitten' on her right calf
while on a boogie board
on Hutchinson Island in
St. Lucie County.
One month earlier, a
local woman was swim-
ming near the boat she
had been on, close to the
St. Lucie Nuclear Power
Plant, when a shark bit
her. '
Both survived the
attacks.
According to the Florida
Museum of Natural Histo-
ry, there have been 26
shark attacks in Martin
County since 1882, and
only one fatal attack on
the Treasure Coast in that
time, which occurred in
Indian River County in
1998.

IRants.


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(772) 465-5504
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.

Take the dog away
I have just read the article about the neighbor who is mean
to his dog. It is so terrible. I don't understand why someone
can't go in there and at least take the dog away.
I'm an animal lover, and I don't like to read this.

Medicaid problems
This letter is about Medicaid and disability.
We all know what the problem is with them. I think we all
need to do something about it.
I have tried for months to get help, and I can't.
It's time that the taxpayers get what they deserve, as we
have been putting our money into this for years.
Others come here, and get everything. Maybe if we all
stand together, we can get something done.

Freedom of speech or ignorance?
After reading someone's rant about the freedom of speech
being threatened, I was utterly discussed by what the person
said.
The person seemed so concerned about our freedom of
speech, but what was really being addressed was more
things that have to do with the main reason why a lot of peo-
ple don't go into churches, or listen to talk radio. It's all nega-
tivity, complaining because if congress decides to pass the
House bill 254, the Hate Crimes bill, the pastors will not have
the ability to preach the Bible from the pulpit.
What does that have to do with freedom of speech?
Absolutely nothing.
That's just someone wanting to give rights to someone
else, corrupting people and taking away their freedom to
think for themselves.
That's just some little individual who has a problem with
things like homosexuality, and other such ignorance, want-
ing the ignorance to be spread.
I'm all for freedom of speech. I enjoy being able to say
what I want, when I want, and how I want. But, at the same
time I think the world would be a little bit better if it had
more people out there not being so down on other cultures,
and other sexual orientations, and such.
Why would people want to go to church and hear a
preacher slam people; judging people?
That has nothing to do with freedom of speech.
That is freedom of ignorance. That's all that is.

With or against traffic?
I would like to respond to the rant about the dog walker
and the bicyclists.
Perhaps she might be at fault. It is my understanding that
she-I am assuming it is a lady- and her dog should be walk-
ing facing traffic. The bicycle rider has to follow the rules of
the road and ride with the traffic.
This is just my opinion.
Reduce tax?
Regarding the increase in sales tax, I think it's supposed to
decrease, or eliminate property taxes. For the life of me, I
don't see how that is possible.
New Jersey has the highest property taxes, and they just
increased their sales tax to 6 percent. Plus there was a
depressed area called Vineland,
whose sales tax was 3 percent, and they increased that sales
tax to 3.5 percent. Along with this, New Jersey also has a
state income tax, as well.
Pennsylvania has a property, sales and state income tax,
and they're planning on increasing their sales tax to 7 per-
cent.
If these states are having problems, how can Florida reduce,
or eliminate property taxes by just increasing the sales tax?

Inappropriate picture
I am calling regarding a picture that's in another newspa-
per on the front cover. I do not believe that I am looking at a
girl, and maybe she's only 11, but there's food hanging out of
her open mouth.
If that's all they think of to use as a photograph for the Indi-
an River County fair, that's just wrong.
I think the Hometown News photographers do a much bet-
terjob.


Pro-life means more than just words
The anti-choice (advocates) are in no way "pro-life."
Those (who hold that view) are only interested in main-
taining an overpopulation among the lower-income that will
provide them with a cheap labor force.
By simple biological definition, a fetus is "alive" only in the
same sense that a cancer tumor is alive. It is a parasite, not a
separate being.
Until it is capable of living on its own, it has no "rights."
Only the host has rights to her own body, and her own life.
If the host chooses to provide extraordinary care, that is the
host's choice not the government's, and not yours.
Those who call themselves "pro-life," or rant about "the
right to life," had better take their sign-waving down to the
offices of the politicians who voted against an increase in the
minimum wage, who shrugged off the one in four children
who are born to such extreme poverty that they go hungry
every night.
They had better be working with Habitat for Humanity and
other organizations to provide conditions that the children
already born can live in safely.
They had better be asking for a tax increase to provide for
health care for the children already born, never mind pre-
natal care for the babies they want to force to be born.
Those who choose abortion have their own reasons, and
they are none of your business. If you don't like abortion, no
one is forcing you to have one but chances are high that
you'll want one for yourself or a family member when some-
thing goes wrong.
If you're "pro-life," then donate your time and money to
working on cures for childhood diseases, and improving liv-
ing conditions for poor children.

Time to bring back prohibition
My sorrow and praise goes out to the high school senior
who had the smarts to call it like it is, "alcohol is a drug, but
people haven't gotten that, yet."
This drug has killed his friends and he has had enough and
he is trying to do something about the problem of underage
kids drinking booze. He has spent much time soliciting the
support of lawmakers to enact stiffer punishment to those
who provide alcohol to minors.
Of course, this problem should have already been taken
care of years ago by some smart adult politician. This drug is
the worst out there, and it's still legal.
Why?
It has been around for thousands of years and has been the
ruin of many people.
I think prohibition is the only way to stop underage kids
from drinking. If alcohol-addicted adults can't get their drug
of choice, then the kids couldn't get it either.
They tried prohibition in the 1920s and say it didn't work,
but it did work and a lot less harm was caused with the lack
of booze to influence people.
Kids are our future. We can't kill off our kids.
If prohibition is not reinstated, the problem will never go
away and will only get worse, and all you citizens out there
know that's true.
I'm sure there are more nondrinkers in this country than
the people who are addicted to alcohol.
If these nondrinkers would just stand up and make
demands to our elected officials, then prohibition would be
reinstated because in this democratic country, the majority
rules.


/


While they are doing this, they can also get rid of the other
legal poison tobacco, of all kinds. *
Tobacco has killed my father and millions of other fathers
and mothers, and it will keep killing millions more.
If they can keep marijuana illegal, then they can certainly
prohibit the deadly poisons called alcohol and tobacco.

Hillary in 2008?
Well, Hillary's done it.
Now she's right up there with John Edwards, John Kerry
and Mr. Murtha, she had voted for the war before she voted
against the war. And now she says she's going to vote for the
redeployment and immediate troop pull out and all this
stuff.
She says our president has to be reined in. That is what I
thought was hilarious from Hillary.
She couldn't even rein in her husband. How in the heck is
she going to rein in anything like this?
Anyway, America, I think you need to do some thinking
about this.
Appeasement, pull back, redeployment, surrender, where
do you draw the line?

In defense of ducks

This is in defense of the poor ducks who are out in the
apartment complexes. My husband and I were going
through one of the complexes, and there was a bunch of
young men out there with a basketball, throwing the ball at
these poor ducks.
What is wrong with these people? Can't they leave the
ducks alone? Where are their parents and why aren't they
watching their kids and (being) more aware?
These ducks aren't bothering anyone. They live in there.

Reader asks for objective view

I just vote for the person who I feel is most qualified and
not for any particular political party.
Having said that, to the person who said that Democrats
are the warriors, check your history to see why we entered
World War II and see if the circumstances were similar to
Sept. 11. Hint: surprise attack on Pearl Harbor.
The person also said that Bush entered the conflict to keep
the Kuwait border from being invaded. What does that per-
son think happened with the Korean and Vietnam (wars)? If
you look at history, we are involved in wars; regardless of any
political parties.
You are entitled to your opinion, but please look at both
sides objectively.

Boycott gasoline from Venezuela

What happened to the boycott of CITGO gasoline from
Venezuela?
The 7-11 stores were going to cancel their contracts with
CITGO and the state was going to do the same on the turn-
pike fuel stations.
It was the news of the day then not now.
People forget.
Get your gas elsewhere.'

GOLDEN GATE -The
fear of collapsing walls
is gone, but the Historic
Golden Gate Building
still needs a lot more
tender loving care
before the public can
step inside.
The unique structure
was saved from the
wrecking ball when
Martin County pur-
chased it in 2002 and
subsequently invested
more than $356,000
toward its restoration.
Built in 1925 in a
S p a n i s h
Mission/Mediterranean
Revival style, and locat-
ed in the Golden Gate
subdivision, the build-
ing once housed a sales
office, a post office, a
church's congregation
and an artist's studio.
The Historic Golden
Gate Building, as it is
now known, still needs
much more work before
Martin County can open
its doors as a satellite
library for the Golden
Gate neighborhood.
Saadia Tsaftarides, a


member of the Commu-
nity Redevelopment
Agency for Golden Gate
and a board member of
the Historic Preserva-
tion Board, calls herself
the "godmother" of the
historical building.
"I want to make sure
that my adopted daugh-
ter is done properly,"
said Mrs. Tsaftarides, a
native of Morocco. "I
come from a country
where we preserve and
restore, we don't destroy
or demolish."
Mrs. Tsaftarides is
leading a petition drive
in Martin County, so
that residents can show
their support of the
preservation board's
attempt to gain funding
through a grant from the
Florida Trust for Historic
Preservation.
Mrs. Tsaftarides said
that a group from the
preservation board will
travel to Tallahassee
March 26, armed with
the petitions, to speak
on behalf of the building
as part of the grant
application process.
Included in the con-
tingent will be Robin


Hicks-Connors, presi-
dent and chief executive
officer of the Historical
Society Martin County
and chairwoman of the
Historic Preservation
Board, as well as Bonnie
Landry, Martin County
community develop-
ment specialist.
"The building is in the
heart of Golden Gate,"
said Ms. Landry. "It's
been an eyesore since
1989, and it's in a loca-
tion we really need to
improve."
Ms. Landry said in
addition to the satellite
library services, the sec-
ond floor of the building
will be available for
meeting space.
Mrs. Tsaftarides is
seeking volunteers to
become "Friends of the
Historic Golden Gate
Building," a group dedi-
cated to fundraising
efforts for the additional
restoration needed to
open the building to the
public on a timely basis.
Intent on preserving
the building that was in
danger of destruction

Stuart police then arrived on the scene

son, Jr., 16, of the 900 block of Forest Park
Drive, Stuart into custody, charging him
with robbery by snatching.

At a press conference on March 19, the Martin County Sheriff's Office displayed some of
the confiscated items from a weekend drug raid, during which 48 pounds of cocaine, six
firearms, 14 vehicles and $32,000 in U.S. currency were seized.

or delivery of cocaine.
Capt. John Wardle of the
Sheriff's Office said that
those charged were "very
bold" and were transport-
ing the drugs from areas in
central Florida.
"It was coming in
through cars via the inter-
state," said Capt. Wardle.
Asked if he knew from
where the cocaine origi-
nated, Capt. Wardle said,
"We assume it came from
across the border of Mexi-
co, but we can't prove it at
this point. However, the
case is still going on and
we anticipate finding out
further where the drugs
actually came from."
Capt. Wardle stressed
that the individuals face
very serious charges.
"They can get up to 40
years, especially with guns
involved," he said.
Capt. Wardle said that
the drug bust was the
result of long, hard work.
"And we're very proud to
do it," he said, adding,
"We're thankful to have a
sheriff that allows us to put
this much effort into
things that are really going
to make our streets a safer
place to live for our chil-
dren and everyone else in
Martin County."

From page A7
before the county pur-
chased it, Mrs. Tsaf-
tarides understands the
significance of restoring
an important part of
Martin County's past.
"If these walls could
talk, they could really
teach us about our com-
munity," she said.

Health system
applies again for
certificate of
need to build in
Tradition
BY RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART For the
eighth time in five years,
Martin Memorial Health
Systems has applied to
the Florida Agency for
Health Care Administra-
tion for the certificate of
need required to build a
hospital in the Tradition
development in western
Port St. Lucie.
"We remain dedicated
to our pledge of bringing
much-needed healthcare
access to the residents of
west Port St. 'Lucie," said
Richmond M. Harman,
president and chief exec-
utive officer of Martin,
Memorial.
Martin Memorial's
plans for the hospital
include all private rooms,
a full-service emergency
department and an
obstetrics department.
The health system esti-
mates the facility will cre-
ate 400 jobs.
Despite the downturn
in the area's housing mar-
ket, Port St. Lucie remains
one of the fastest-grow-
ing cities in Florida. Last
fall, more than 10,000
local residents supported
the health system's plan

to build a hospital in the
western section of Port St.
Lucie. In addition, Port St.
Lucie City Council
backed, the project by
signing a resolution of
support in September of
2006.
Melinda Camley, a Port
St. Lucie resident, has
signed Martin Memorial's
petition to bring the new
hospital to Tradition each
time the health system
applies to the state.
The mother of four
young children, three of
whom have severe asth-
ma, Mrs. Camley herself
has lung disease and is on
oxygen. Having a hospital
closer to home is impera-
tive to her and her hus-
band.
"Lawnwood is out of
the question, and the St.
Lucie Medical Center is
so overcrowded, and the
doctors there so over-
whelmed," said Mrs.
Camley.
"We travel to Martin
Memorial, but it's easily a
45-minute drive. A hospi-
tal at Tradition would be a
15-minute drive away, at
the most," she said.
The state has denied
previous applications for
a certificateP of need on
the basis that area hospi-
tals do not have enough
in-patient occupancy to
support the building of a
new hospital.
Martin Memorial pur-
chased 20 acres of land in
Tradition in December,


'We remain dedicated to our pledge of
bringing much-needed healthcare access to
the residents of west Port St. Lucie."

Richmond M. Harman
Chief executive officer of Martin Memorial


2006, near the site where
Torrey Pines Institute for
Molecular Studies is now
being built. Torrey Pines
has supported the health
system's previous bid for
the certificate of need,
anticipating the collabo-
ration of the two organi-
zations in clinical studies.
Scott Samples, public
information coordinator
for Martin Memorial, said
there is no limit to the
number of times the
health system can apply
for a certificate of need.
"We are seeing more
people than we've seen in
the past, which indicates
to us that the need con-
tinues to be there and
that it continues to grow,"
said Mr. Samples.
Martin Memorial's
plans to build the 80-bed
hospital have become
more urgent with time.
"The more time that
passes, the more dire the
need will be, and so we
will continue this fight for
as long as necessary," said
Mr. Harman.

pital in western Port St.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.
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-

how to run your business. I "My CM
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectant
customers.


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

TRAVEL


Visiting Petra in


Jordan is not difficult


whenever the
Muslim world
V celebrates
Ramadan and Eid I think
of all the wonderful
experiences I've had in the
Middle East.
I particularly remember
how interesting it once was
to observe Ramadan while
in Egypt and Eid el-Adha
while in Morocco.
One of the most interest-
ing places I know of in the
Middle East is the ruins of
Petra in Jordan.
I hadn't really heard
about Petra until 10 years
ago, when it became the
new "it" place.
Many upscale hotels
were built near the ruins,
in anticipation of endless
tourists. I went to Petra the
first time in 2000, but the
next time everything was
different.
Tourism had ground to a
halt after Sept. 11 and
during the Intifada, the
Palestinian and Israeli
conflict.
As time passed, tourism
gradually increased. I went
back to Petra in 2004. I
loved it both times and felt
the experience was well
worth the trip.
Most people go to Jordan
as part of a tour of Egypt or
Israel.
You can fly directly from
Cairo to Amman, the
capital. From Israel you
can drive via the Allenby
Bridge and stay overnight
in the city.
What most people forget
is that Israel has signed
peace accords with both
Jordan and Egypt, making
travel relatively easy.
I say relatively easy,
because Israel has tough
security at its border
crossings. Here the agents
look directly in your eyes
when they check your
passport and ask all sorts
of probing questions.
Each time I've been to
Petra I've chosen to take a
day trip from Eilat, at the
southernmost tip of Israel.
Eilat is Israel's resort city,
situated on the Red Sea,
wedged between Taba,
Egypt and Aqaba, Jordan.
The tour from there is
relatively inexpensive
(about $120) and it's away
of seeing the site if your
time is limited. It's also a
good change of pace from
Eilat's great snorkeling,
swimming and shopping.
So, to begin your trip to
Petra from Eilat, make a
reservation the day before
and just wait for the tour
bus to pick you up the next
morning,
Your first stop will be at
the border crossing, about
five minutes from your
hotel. Here you'll go
through two checkpoints
one Israeli and one
Jordanian and pay for
two visas. Once everyone is
processed, you'll walk
across the border and get
on the Jordanian tour bus
and meet your guide.
The ride lasts about three
hours and takes you
through remote deserts,
where some scenes from
"Lawrence of Arabia" were
filmed.
Once you've turned off
the empty, desert highway
you start to pass small
villages and then enter the
town ofWadi Musa.
Here you pass shops,
restaurants and various
hotels, both large and
small. You'll be back in
town later for lunch, but
now it's time to see the
ruins nearby.
As you walk through the
entrance and move past
the vendors selling horse-
back rides, carriage rides
and trinkets you will


suddenly get your first view

of Petra.
What a magnificent view
it is!
Petra is a carved city,
created from a narrow
gorge of red rocks (Al Siq)
that opens up a mile or two
later into an expansive
colonnade. It was the
ancient capital of the
Nabataens, who dominat-
ed the trade routes of the
area in the pre-Roman
days, around 300 B.C.
By building in the rocks,
the Nabataens created a
city that was defensible
and hauntingly beautiful.
Your guide will explain
the history of Petra, as you
walk through the brilliant
red canyon and see the
carved buildings along the
way.
The colors are vibrant
and the rock formations
mysterious.
After walking for about
an hour, you'll pass
through a narrow passage-
way. As you exit, you can't
help but gasp.
Up ahead is the famous
treasury building, intri-
cately carved, majestic and
beautiful.
Once you've taken
endless photos of it and of
the resident camels nearby,
you can enter the building,
which was probably a
Nabataen tomb. It's called
the treasury now, based on
much speculation and
little fact.
Regardless, it's an
amazing place and well
worth the walk.
Moving on, the canyon
opens up and you walk
into the lower area of the
complex, passing the
coliseum, theater,
monastery and colon-
nades.
If you have a lot of
energy, climb the steps into
the ornate hillside tombs
or explore various temples
nearby.
In this open area, you'll
again find merchants
selling wares and even
camel rides.

Travel
From page Al 1
After the long walk
down, you have to walk up
or take a horse-drawn
carriage.
I like to walk back alone
and quietly reflect on all
the surrounding beauty.
That quiet doesn't last long
if there are school groups
around though. The
children always thank
visitors for coming to their
country, saying they "hope
you've liked Petra."
Upon leaving Petra,
you'll head for a late lunch
in town. Then it's back
through the desert with a
stop for tea in the very
pleasant, coast city of
Aqaba.
As sun sets, you'll return
through the checkpoints
and walk across the border
to a waiting Israeli bus.
It will have been an
arhazing day, not only
seeing Petra, but also to
have moved from one
Middle Eastern country to
the next with relative ease
and grace.
I've learned over the
years that nothing in the
Middle East is actually as
hard as we Americans
think it is.
So if a trip to Petra is on
your wish list, go.

the sports, weather and
traffic announcers, all
while keeping up the ban-
ter with Ms. Phillips. The
pace is fast and a visitor is
amazed at how much of
the banter between Mr.
Coles and Ms. Phillips is
completely unscripted.
On top of his on-air
responsibilities, Mr. Coles
is the station's program
director and music direc-
tor. When the show goes
off the air at 9, these other
duties kick in, and he is
often in the studio until
late in the day.
"My job starts as soon as
I get off the air," he said.
The married father of
five children, ages seven
to 19, he often brings, his
children to the studio, and
their young voices can be
heard across the airwaves.
Children play an impor-


tant part in the Breakfast
Flakes program. Each
morning they run a seg-
ment called "Kid's Cor-
ner," where trivia ques-
tions are asked and young
ones call in to guess the
answer for prizes such as
tickets to the fair or the
Young Chef's Academy.
"Kids' Corner is the
highlight of my day," said
Ms. Phillips.
The station's communi-
ty involvement is a source
of pride for them and is
frequently tied-in to their
on-air programming.
Last week, the Breakfast
Flakes and the late-morn-
ing disc jockey Bonnie
Ashley had a friendly
competition to see who
could raise the most funds
for the American Red
Cross. Mr. Coles, Ms.
Phillips, Mr. Davis and Ms.
Ashley attempted to raise
$1,000 each from their lis-
teners for the organiza-
tion.

Minimize the pain of


having your car serviced


She pain of buying a
used or new car may
be greater than the
pain of having it serviced,
but you need to have it
serviced far more often
than you have to buy a car.
I am listing eight sugges-
tions to make your visit to
your car dealer's service
department as pleasant as
possible.
Choose the dealer with
the best service depart-
ment. Remember that you
don't have to have the same
dealership service your car
that sold you the car. You
probably bought your car
from the dealer who gave
you the best price. You
should have your car
serviced at the dealer who
can best maintain and
repair the car.
The price of service is
important, but secondary
to the quality of the service
and repairs. Do a little
research. Ask friends and
neighbors who drive your
make of car. Check with the
Better Business
Bureau and the county
office of consumer affairs.
Ask the service manager to
show you his factory score
on the customer satisfac-
tion index. Every manufac-
turer surveys dealers'
service customers and
ranks that dealer by how
well he treats his cus-
tomers.
* Establish a personal
relationship with your
service advisor. The person
in the service drive who
writes up your repair order
is very important. Be sure
you get a good one. He
should be knowledgeable,
attentive to your needs, *
promptly return phone

On Cars


calls and recommend only
necessary services.
You might not find this
person on your first visit,
but if you aren't comfort-
able with the person you
are dealing with, ask for
one with whom you are.
When you make an
appointment to have your
car serviced, always ask for
that service advisor.
* Don't pay the "gotcha,"
miscellaneous supplies
fee. Almost all car dealers
tack on a phony fee when
you pay your bill, which is
simply more profit to the
dealer, but is disguised by
various labels. It is also
sometimes called "environ-
mental impact fee,"
"sundry shop supplies" and
many others. The cashier
just adds a percentage
ranging from 5 to 10
percent to your bill. This is
no different from the
"dealer fee" that the sales
department tacked on to
the price they quoted you
on the price of the car.
Most dealers will waive
this fee if you complain
about it, especially if you
threaten to call the BBB,
their manufacturer or the


Florida Attorney General's
office.
* Always road test your
car, preferably with the
technician. If you brought
your car in for a drivability
problem such as a noise,
vibration, or pulling to the
right or left, don't accept.
the car back until you ride
in the car with the techni-
cian or service advisor and
confirm that the problem
has been remedied. I also
recommend that you drive
the car with the service
advisor to demonstrate the
problem when you bring it
in. Experiencing what you
experience always commu-
nicates your problem more
accurately than listening to
your description of the
problem.
* Ask for a written
estimate of the total cost
of repairs and mainte-
nance. Florida law requires
that the dealer give you a
written estimate. By law,
they may not exceed this
by more than 10 percent.
* Make in appointment
ahead of time. You should
insist on making an
appointment and you
should try to make that
appointment at a time
when the dealer's service
department will be least
busy, typically the middle
of the afternoon on
weekdays or on Saturday
and Sunday. Avoid the 7:30
to8a.m. morning rush.
When your service
advisor has written up
your repair order, ask him
how long it will take. After
he tells you, ask him to let
you know ahead of time if,
for any unforeseen reason,

Pirates
From page Al
after that, Roberson gave
up for good.
"I would say the dead-
line was switched four
times for full payment and
that was never met," said
Roberson. "I figured that
some of the guys wanted
something for nothing. I
was stressing over the
whole situation. If they
would have showed me
they were going to pay the
money and show up and
play, then I would have
found the $9,000, but they
didn't so I didn't finish the
season."
But for the majority of
the Pirates, to punish them
for unpaid bills was hardly
the way to fix the situation.
Some even take issue with
Roberson's explanation.
"It's no secret. Everybody
knows what's going on.
Everybody paid up and
he's running with the
money basically. That's
how I see it and until I get
another explanation, that
all I can go by," said Myron
Weaver, the Pirates defen-
sive captain. "(Roberson),
never talked to none of us.
He came out here with
certain stuff and expects
us to fall for it because he
doesn't want to pay. And
that's a quitter to me."
Players who use minor
league football as a way to
get college scholarships
see another reality in the
situation.
"It's disheartening


because you hope the
coach will help you get
into a school," said Trea-
sure Coast receiver Charlie
Williams, a 2003 Martin
County graduate who is
anticipating a scholarship
offer later this spring.
"There's a lot of people out
here with a lot of talent,
and couldn't go to school
because they drop out or
they never make it all the
way. There's a lot of people
out here with a lot more
talent than I have."
In February Roberson
was named owner and
head coach of the new
National Indoor Football
League team, the Port St.
Lucie Mustangs. Soon
after that announcement,
Roberson stepped down
as the Pirates head coach,
and named Hamilton, an
assistant with the Pirates,
as his replacement. He has
since cut all ties with the
Mustangs as well.
On March 3, Roberson
canceled a game between
the Pirates and the Her-
nando Eagles at the last
second because of finan-
cial issues. The team
raised $500 to pay off fines
to the league for the last
minute cancellation so
they would be able to play
against Fort Pierce the fol-
lowing week. The game
against the Fire, a 27-11
loss on March 10, would
be the team's last.
With the Pirates now
disbanded, players are
considered free agents and
can go play for other
teams. Kurt Holden, the


owner of the Fort Pierce
Fire said that several play-
ers have contacted him
about playing for the Fire,
even though they will not
be eligible for the post sea-
son, which begins April 7.
Regardless of how things
turned out in 2007, Hamil-
ton is ready to give it
another shot in 2008, this
time as owner and head
coach.
"This league did a lot of
good, so I can't help but
think of a way to bring it
back next year. If we play
under the Pirates logo is a
different story," said
Hamilton, who is also the
president of the Stuart
Hornets Pee Wee football
team. "The general con-
sensus of the team is to
bury that logo. We're defi-
nitely looking into doing
something for the guys
next year."
Hamilton also said that
he has no ill feeling toward
Roberson, because he
developed a team in Mar-
tin County when none
existed.
While Roberson says he
is done with coaching
football, Holden says he
would do everything he
can to help get another
team in the Martin County
area.
"If they asked for it, by all
means I would be there.
Their success is my suc-
cess and vice-versa," said
Holden. "If we don't work
to make minor league foot-
ball bigger, we won't be
successful."


Stewart
From page A14


your car will not be ready
in the promised time.
Oftentimes when you call
a service department theby
will tell you to "bring the
car in anytime" or "come
right over."
Service advisors will tell
you this because they are
either too busy or too lazy
to take the time to make a
proper appointment.
When they tell you this, tell
them that your time is very
valuable and that you
insist on an appointment
at a time when they can get
you in and out quickly.
Always write down the
name of the person who
gave you the appointment.


Shop and compare
high cost repair prices.
Most service departments
are competitive on mainte-
nance items such as oil
changes, wheel alignments
and tire rotations. However,
the costs of major repairs
can vary considerably. If
you are looking at an air-
conditoner, transmission or
engine repair that can cost
several thousand dollars,
get bids from more than
one service department.
Often, just suggesting that
you will do this will keep the
cost down from the dealer-
ship you prefer.
Introduce yourself to
the service manager. This


falls along the same
philosophy as developing a
good personal relationship
with your service advisor.
It can't hurt to know the
"boss."
If you are on a first-name
basis with the service
manager, it might earn you
a slightly higher level of
treatment from those that
work for him.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

Take four

steps for,

food safety

th Easter and
g Passover around
WV the corner, I
thought I'd tell you how to
avoid uninvited guests. This
doesn't refer to Aunt Harriet
or Uncle Ambrose.
The guests I'm talking
about are invisible to the
naked eye, make a beeline
for the food and make you
miserable for a few days.
I'm talking about food-
borne bacteria.
When we entertain dur-
ing the holidays, we're often
very busy and sometimes
cut corners to get every-
thing ready in time.
There are measures you
can take to ensure that you
and your guests have a great
time without risking a trip
to the emergency room.
The Partnership for Food
Safety Education has a cam-
paign called "Fight BAC" or
food borne bacteria..
Such illnesses can affect
anyone. However, pregnant
women, young children,
older people and people
with weakened immune
systems are more at risk.
For everyone's safety, and
a good holiday time, the
partnership suggests four
steps to food safety.

Clean
*Wash hands with warm
water and soap for at least
20 seconds before and after
handling foods, using the
bathroom, changing dia-
pers or handling pets.
*Wash cutting boards
and other surfaces with hot
soapy water after preparing
food.
*Use paper towels to
clean kitchen surfaces or
wash cloth towels frequent-
ly in hot water.
, *Rinse fresh fruits and
vegetables and scrub firm-
skinned ones with a clean
vegetable brush.

Colors for St. Pat's day: In
my March 9 column, I suggested
that you not wear orange on St.
Paddy's day because it was
considered an insult.
That was something I had
always heard, but my statement
was wrong. No offense was
intended.
What's in those bread-
crumbs? Do you use bread-
crumbs? I'm sure you do, and if
you're like me, you choose plain,
which allows you to add the
spices.
Read the label, everything
from corn syrup to high fructose
corn syrup, salt and a dozen
other ingredients are in there.
What kind of bread were the
crumbs made from?
Now I know why it's smart to
buy breadcrumbs in a health
food stores or check with a deli
or Italian bakery in your town.
I called Port St. Lucie Italian
bakery and learned they make
breadcrumbs from their Italian
bread.
Call ahead at (772) 337-9472 to
order, or you can visit Roma
Bakery on U.S. 1, also in Port St.
Lucie.
*About veal: Some people
have a negative reaction when
you mention veal. Here are the
facts as I know them.
In mass production, a male
calf is kept alive for three or fours
months, never allowed to walk in
the grass and is fed a special diet
so the meat will be pale and
tender.
Organic markets will sell "free
roaming" veal when they can
find a farm that accommodates
the need. However, this is rare.
Years ago, the calf was allowed
to roam and play in the fields


until his time came.
Today, there aren't
enough farms that
do this.
Sadly, there is no ,
use for a male calf.
If they were to be
kept alive you
wouldn't be able to
buy milk since they
would be consum-
ingit.
It is unfortunate
that consumers
believe the whiter
the meat, the more tender. In my
opinion, the opposite is true.
It is your choice whether or not
to eat veal, or any meat for that
matter. It is also a popular choice
to enjoy all meats.
If veal is a problem in this
week's recipes, substitute
chicken.
Veal cutlet is quite expensive,
even when you can find it on
sale.
Boneless chicken breast can
also be on the expensive side, but
is often on sale. When you find a
great price, stock up.
Don't buy the breast that is
already cut for cutlets. The price
is much higher and it's not hard
to do it yourself.

PREPARING CUTLETS
Veal: Prepare veal by scoring
the meat with a sharp knife,
placing it between two pieces of
waxed paper and pounding with
a mallet or any heavy utensil.
Doing this will break up any
tough fibers and help the cutlets
keep their shape while cooking.
Chicken: Remove all traces
of fat and nerve. Separate lobes.
Now you must "butterfly" the

Happy birthday, Aries. Did you get a cake this year?
You deserve it and a lot more for what you do for
the rest of us during the year. Thank you also for
bringing in the spring. It is a time of new life and
beginnings. It's time to clean house and life of
unneeded attachments. Release the past of any-
thing that causes pain, struggle or unhappiness.
Don't put up with it in your life. You have far greater
things to attend to this year. Make your new list,
write it down and take action. Positive results have
to follow.

Lay the breast on a cutting

not through, the other side.
Slash the seam carefully with

Plant society garlic

for a pretty change


spring is not far off, so
why not start the
season right with a
unique plant called
"society garlic."
Some of us take garlic.
supplements along with
our daily vitamins, but not
many of us think of
planting garlic in our
gardens society garlic,
that is.
Society garlic is not
really garlic at all. Its only
similarity to real garlic is
that it is a member of the
lily (alliaceae) family.
Society garlic can create
a splash of purple color
that can accent any garden
or landscape. It looks best
when it is planted in
groups, but it can also "
used as a border around
larger trees and shrubs...,
One of the most distinc-
tive aspects of the plant is
the smell. They smell just
like garlic cloves. Although
they are fragrant almost
any time of day, the
fragrance is strongest at
night.
Society garlic is easy to
grow and will thrive in
well-drained, light sandy
soil. They will tolerate full
sun to partial shade
however they will require
regular watering during
the hot summer months.
Dividing them as they
multiply can easily propa-
gate the plants.
I have read from some
sources that the plants are
edible, but I wouldn't
recommend it. Just use
them as ornamental
plants.
I've also been told that
they deter moles, but I
have no actual proof. If
anybody experiments with
that, let me know if you
had positive results.
Other bonuses are the
plant is a perennial
andblooms from spring to
mid-summer.


Protect your hibiscus
If you grow hibiscus, one
of the most annoying and
destructive pests are
aphids.
Aphids are small soft-
bodiedinsects that
congregate mainly on
tender new growth and
around the blooms. These
creatures feed in large
colonies and can multiply
rapidly. r
Aphids can often cause
the leaves of ornamentals
to curl up. Then insects
can hide in these curls and
escape the effects of
insecticides. ,
Aphids do their damage
by sucking life-sustaining
juices from the plant, thus
making it weak and
vulnerable to disease.
Since hibiscus are
somewhat tender, you
cannot use Malathion as
an insecticide of choice
because the plant will
drop its leaves.
The best remedy and
protection is to use a
systemic insecticide such
as Orthene or Orthenex.
Orthenex does double
duty taking care of the
pests and helping with
some diseases. You can
also use a rose and flower
insect spray, but be sure
aphids are listed as one of
the insects it kills.

Anoushka Shankar blends a

famous past with her own future


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Anoushka Shankar has
been called "the future of
Indian classical music,"
and named one of the most
influential Asians by the
Asian edition of Time mag-
azine, and she is only 26.
While she is proud of the
accolades, when the Gram-
my-nominated musician,
conductor and composer
brings her "Rise" tour to
the Lyric Theatre on March
25, the daughter of leg-
endary sitar player Ravi
Shankar and sister of musi-
cian Norah Jones will be
doing what she loves best,


simply playing music for
an audience.
In a telephone interview
from Los Angeles, the
young performer spoke
about her music, growing
up in a famous family and
not believing everything
she reads about herself.
Acknowledging that
there are a lot of expecta-
tions surrounding her, she
says that she can't live her
life worrying about what
people think.
"If you did, you'd be in
trouble," she said. "You
don't see yourself that way.
(The expectations) have
always been there, with my
own career and my father.


That's made it easier to
ignore. That's not how you
base your own level of suc-
cess and happiness. Your
own achievements meas-
ure against your own abili-
ties is how I measure guc-
cess. Only I know what I'm
capable of. What makes
me happy is to play."
Ms. Shankar says that
she loves all aspects of her
career: the composing, the
conducting and the per-
forming.
"They're all tied in
together," she said. "The
magic is playing music for
the people. I enjoy working

Shankar
From page B3
in collaborative situations
with my father. I enjoy it
almost as much as play-
ing."
Her father taught her the
sitar when she was 7, with
a smaller instrument
made especially for her,
and she is a classical sitar
player, the only one her
father personally has
taught. However, this cur-
rent tour is not about the
classics and not about the
past.


"I get a mixed audience,"
she said. "It's a combina-
tion of people introduced
to me through my father
and some who heard me
first. That's happening
more and more. This cur-
rent 'Rise' tour has west-
ern, acoustic and Indian
music. It's tricky because
it's different. People may
expect classical sitar and
this is not that."
Ms. Shankar says that
she hopes some day to
work with her sister,
Norah.
"We've done a bit of
work together for fun," she


said. "We come from such
different musical worlds.
Both of us are a little hesi-
tant about doing it just
because we're sisters. We
don't want to lose the
integrity of our music. If it
happens, we'd be happy,
but we wouldn't make it
happen."
Anoushka Shankar
appears at the Lyric The-
atre, 59 S.W. Flagler Ave.,
Stuart, for two perform-
ances on March 25, at 4
and 7 p.m. Tickets are $43
and $38; call (772) 286-

Merrotica's Coffee Cafe

is a waterfront wonder


BY ROBIN RINKE
Dining review crew


STUART The only
waterfront coffee shop in
the area happens to be
right here in the Stuart
area, and is it ever cool.
I took my mom, Dar-
lene, with me to visit
Merrottica's Coffee Cafe
located at 4745 S.E. Deso-
to Ave., in the quaint Fish
House Art Center in Port
Salerno. (Next to Finz
Waterfront Grille.)
Mom and I couldn't
believe the view and


beautiful breeze that
came through the wide-
open cafe that sits over
the water, which over-
looks the marina.
Right 'in the center of
the shop is the
coffee/wine bar with high
stools to perch on and
plenty of quaint eclectic
tables and chairs to sit at
as well.
We sat at a table right
next to the water so we
could see the sun twinkle
on the water and beauti-
ful boats.
Owners John Hen-


nessee and Beverly Ervin
wanted to create a Florid-
ian, eclectic cafe for the
public to enjoy.
Ms. Ervin said the
thought of opening a cof-
fee shop came one night
when a group of artists
from the center were sit-
ting around in that very
area enjoying the view
and relaxing atmosphere.
They thought it would be
great to share it with
everybody.

as it gets," Ms. Ervin said.
"It's on the water and sur-
rounded by the art center.
I love it."
Ms. Ervin said she
chose the Supreme Bean
line of coffee beans
imported from Ethiopia
to serve her customer's.
"The Ethiopian coffee is
organic. The taste is mag-
nificent and you can't get
a better cup of coffee,"
she said.
She was right. I thought
the flavor was full and
robust with no bitterness
or aftertaste. It was as
smooth as silk and nice
and hot.
The manager of the
shop, Beth Hansen, said
the organic blend is a real


hit with their customers.
Another hit at the shop
is their fruit smoothies.
My mom ordered the wild
berry and it came loaded
with whipped cream on
top. My mom loved it. It
was so creamy she said it
was like an ice cream
shake.
Ms. Hansen said that a
key ingredient in the
smoothies is red tea,
which is an anti-oxidant
and very good for you,
and that they contain no
soy or milk.
"The company that we
buy from is fabulous. The
pure fruit puree has only
a small bit of cane sugar,
just enough to make the
fruit flavor burst," Ms.
Hansen said.
That day, several of the
customers were reading
while sipping on coffees.


One gentleman and his
wife were taking advan-
tage of the wireless Inter-
net service.
Merrotica's Coffee Cafe
serves cappuccinos,
espressos, gourmet teas,
handmade sodas, iced
coffees, smoothies, five
star desserts from Cake
King and a large selection
wine and beer.
Ms. Hansen said even
the beer is special.
"Two of the import
beers we serve are Chi-
may and Lindemans
Lambec from Belgium.
They are unique. You can't
get them just anywhere,"
she said.
My mom and I loved the
quaint get away coffee
shop. It is truly a hidden
treasure to discover.
On the weekends, the
shop offers live entertain-


ment.
On Friday and Saturday
nights, from 7 to 9 p.m., a
variety of local musicians,
play and Sundays from 2
to 5 p.m., George and
Marilyn play and sing
from the American song-
book.
The hours of the cafe
are Sunday through
Thursday from 7 a.m. to 9
p.m., and Friday and Sat-
urday from 7 a.m. to 10
p.m.
For more information,

cook for 1 minute. Spoon
sauce over cutlets, garnish-
ing with the lemon slices.

MOCKALICIOUS
MASHED POTATOES
(NIB)
serves 4
Many low-carbohydrate
diet books have a version of
mashed cauliflower. It's
hard to believe that cauli-
flower made this way tastes
like potatoes.
1 head fresh cauliflower
2 tablespoons butter or
butter substitute, such as
Smart Balance
1 packet salt-free pow-
dered chicken bullion
2 tablespoons cream
cheese, regular, light or
fat-free (optional)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Cut up cauliflower and
cook in a small amount of
water. Drain and blot dry.
Let cool slightly, place in
blender. Add butter substi-
tute, bullion and cream
cheese. Blend until smooth,
pushing mixture down with
a wooden spoon. Place in a
microwave-safe dish.
Season and heat before
serving.

VEAL, CHICKEN OR
FISH FRANCHISE
serves 4
S Chicken, veal or fish
Francaise is delicious. The
only problem is when you


order it in a restaurant it is
almost all butter, with a
little lemon. As far as I'm
concerned, it leaves a lot to
be desired.
Try my Francaise sauce.
It is not fat laden like the
original. When I served
chicken Francaise at a
family dinner, my then 7-
year-old grandson,
Addison, said, with his
mouth full and a slight
trickle of sauce dripping
down his chin, "Grammy, I
can't believe you created
such an incredible sauce."
How's that for a vote of
approval?
Francaise is made of egg
battered cutlets or fish
pieces that are fried in oil.
1-1/2 pounds veal cutlet,
boneless chicken breast
or fish fillets
1 cup flour
Salt and pepper'
1 cup of plain, dry
breadcrumbs
1 tablespoons parsley
flakes
I to 2 eggs or egg whites
Milk or water
Mix flour with a little salt
and pepper. Dredge cutlets
in flour mixture.
For an egg batter, beat
eggs with a little milk or
water, add parsley flakes
and coat floured cutlets
completely.
Fry in a small amount of
canola or olive oil until
lightly browned on both
sides.
Cutlets and fish cook
quickly. As soon as they are
browned, they are done.
I prefer my cutlets for this
dish breaded. After dipping


cutlets in egg wash, lightly
bread with crumbs sea-
soned with a little salt and
pepper and plWrsley flakes.
Fry as directed above,
placing them on pap r
towels after cooking.

FRANCHISE SAUCE
2 tablespoons butter or
butter substitute
1 cup chicken broth
Scant 1/2-teaspoon dry
mustard
1/2 teaspoon of dried
tarragon
Dash cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 tablespoons of
lemon juice
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
Dash ofWorcestershire
sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
In a small saucepan, melt
butter. Add all remaining
ingredients except corn-
starch. Simmer for about 15
minutes for flavors to blend.
Thicken with cornstarch
dissolved in small amount
of water, adding more
cornstarch if necessary.

ies. You are deeper and more
tolerant because of it You
respect others' privacy. They
respect yours. This positive
attitude has brought you safe
thus far. There is still a long
way to go. Move full steam
ahead on your goals and
dreams. You have the balance
you need. A balanced Virgo is
a happy Virgo. We all have a
lot to learn from you.
Libra-Sept.23-Oct.22
Your natural passion for life is
contagious to those around
you. You are the spark that
lights their fire. The strongest
and most highly evolved
Librans think with their heart
and spirit not their head. You
live dose to the creative fires
of the universe. You are a
steady worker and a loyal
friend. Being so deeply in
touch with these inner values
will continue to pull you safely
through all of life's challenges.
You are always ready with the
positive solutions.
Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your mind, heart and spirit are
all working in harmony as we
move into the spring. This is a
good sign. Continue to listen
to and trust the deeper urges
before making major deci-
sions. If it feels good and you
want to do it, go for it. If it
doesn't then wait and be
patient Remain calm in the
face of challenges. You have
come through the toughest
times. Better times are just
ahead. Keep your spirit up,
and never give up. You are
now ready for new victories
over life.


Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your thoughts are things.
Think each day like you have
everything you desire to live a
high quality life. Quality is
more important than quanti-
ty. Your request for wisdom
above riches makes the uni-
verse want to shower more
and more good on you. Your
love of peace, health, abun-
dance, faith and joy continue
to light the path of others
around you as well. Keep a
strong focus on the areas of.
life that make you happy and
you will always continue to
thrive and grow.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
The past year has been good.
This one will be even better if
you continue to build on all
the progress you have made.
Challenges are for the learn-
ing if you grasp the lessons
offered. You have a brilliant
mind and are so hard work-
ing, but your greatest
strength is listening to your
instincts. Trust your higher
power, take action, then wait.
Let things unfold. You will
know when help is needed.
You are going to love what's
coming next.
Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your strong belief in doing
things right is a major factor
in your wonderful personal,
professional and social suc-
cess. When you get that right
feeling nothing can stop you
or slow you down. You are a
winner You have an awe-
some reservoir of creativity,
talent and passion. So many
dreams live in your heart. You
are blessed with spiritual
riches of the highest order.
Work on the top priorities,
keep a lighter touch and your
life will continue to be richly


rewarded.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Mercury in Pisces right now
gives your mind and
thoughts an edge. You see so
clearly what you want. Now
consider the possible results
if action is taken on each
idea. This will give you a
clear-cut knowledge of the
probable outcome before
anything is set in motion.
With all this wisdom at your
call you will create wonderful
results in the year to come.
Use this process consistently
and you will also continue to
dazzle others who come into
your energy field. You are the
buzz.

*Keep raw meat, poultry,
eggs and seafood away from
other foods.
*Use different cutting
boards or plates for raw
meat and eggs and fresh
produce or prepared foods.
*Never place food on a
plate that previously held
raw meat, poultry, eggs or
fish.

Cook
*Food must be cooked at
a high enough temperature
so that the temperature
inside the food gets high
enough to kill bacteria. Pur-
chase a food thermometer
and use it. Remember, color
is not a good indication of
whether food is done.
*Roast beef should be
cooked to 145 degrees for
medium rare and 160
degrees for medium.
*Poultry should be
cooked to a minimum of
165 degrees as should
ground meat.
*Cook eggs until the yolk
and white are firm, and only
use recipes in which eggs
are cooked or heated thor-
oughly.

Chill
*Food should not sit on
the counter or table, but
should be refrigerated
quickly, because cold tem-
peratures slow the growth of
bacteria.
*It's hard during the holi-
days, but try not to overstuff
your refrigerator, because
cold air needs to circulate to
keep food safe.
*Keep the temperature of
your refrigerator at 40
degrees or below. This is one
of the most effective ways to
reduce the risk of food
borne illness.
*Refrigerate or freeze
meat, poultry, eggs and
other perishables as soon as
you bring them home from
the store.
*Never let raw meat,
poultry eggs, cooked food or
L cut fruits and vegetables sit
S at room temperature for
S more than two hours; on a
hot summer day, one hour
is safer.
*Never defrost at room
temperature. Food needs to
stay at a safe temperature
during thawing. Sometimes
the defrosting recommen-
dations on turkeys are too
low. Take the turkey out of
the freezer and put it in the
fridge to defrost with
enough time so that it is
completely defrosted when
you want to cook it.
*Marinate food in the
9 refrigerator.
*Divide large amounts of
leftovers into several small
containers to allow for
quicker cooling in the refrig-
erator.
*Use or discard refrigera-
tor food on a regular basis. If
you have any doubts about
the appearance or safety of
a food, throw it out. It's
never worth it to take a risk.

20th-Century
Jewelry
The jewels of Spanish
winter Salvador Dali
ere more extravagant
nd were more repre-
tntative of design for its
wn sake than as a func-
on. of the jewel to be
orn. Although a great
eal of modern jewelry is
signed and made by
irge firms, the tradition
f the artist craftsman Is
rong In Scandinavia
nd the United States,
here silver, seml-
reclous stones, ham-
lered copper, and
other less costly materials
re commonly used,
astics are often
employed in expensive
welry. Arts-and-crafts
tops produce vast
Elections of abstract
nd naturalistic designs
rings bracelets, ear-
gs, necklaces, and
rooches. Although Jew-
ry In the 19th and early
)th century was worn
primarily by women, In
)e late 20th Century
:me men were wearing
welry such as
eckchains, bracelets,
nd earrings.

LOST IN
TRANSMISSION
As reliable as most automatic
transmissions are, they are rel-
atively easy to break and quite
expensive to fix. One of the
most common signs that there
may be a problem is delayed
engagement. That is, there is a
long moment of hesitation
between the time you put a
shifter into "D"(rive) or "R"(everse)
and when the transmission
actually kicks in. Other signs of
problems with automatic trans-
missions include slippage or
jerking/shuddering of the trans-
mission. It is also not a good
sign, certainly, if the transmis-
sion gets stuck in a gear. These
problems may be more notice-
able when the engine is still cold
or after the vehicle is warmed
up. Take note of either fact
when talking to the technician.
It is always best to have your
car, truck or SUV regularly
inspected, and cared for by a
professional. At ADVANTAGE
FORD OF STUART, we know
preventative maintenance is the
best course of action to follow if
you want your vehicle to have a
long life. Located at 4000 S.E.
Federal Highway, we want you
to know that we can extend the
life of your car with regular
check-ups. For an appointment
call 772.781.6540. We're a
"Blue Oval Certified" Ford deal-
ership.
HINT: It never pays to ignore a
transmission problem, which
may be easily fixed if caught
early.

Elliot Museum director of development Ellen Peitz admires the baseball exhibit at the museum in Stuart. The Elliot
Museum has the largest collection of autographs outside the baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.


Baseball lore lives in Stuart


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
For local historians,
the Elliot Museum in
Stuart has long been one.
6f the area's well-known
treasures. But what some
fn the area might not
realize, is that the same
building that houses old
motor vehicles from the


last century, also has one
of the nation's most
valuable collection 's of
baseball memorabilia.
In 1994, Daniel Gins-
berg, a Jupiter resident
at the time, donated his
private collection of
autographs, cards, bats,
documents and other
baseball memorabilia to


the museum, so that his
personal treasure could
be shared with everyone.
Now sitting behind
glass protection, Gins-
berg's findings, estimat-
ed to be worth over
$500,000 when donated,
are on display at the
Elliot house for all to
enjoy.


"For us to maintain
such an exhibit shows
the longevity of the
exhibit itself," said the
museum's curator Janel
Hendrix. "If it didn't
bring in visitors we
would use the space for
something else."

helped lead the Pioneers to their 25th consecutive NJCAA national championship on
March 7-10lin Buffalo, N.Y.


Once again, IRCC brings


home a national title


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
For three decades the
swimming and diving
teams at Indian River
Community College have
dominated the national
stage.
The 2006-2007 season
was no different.
IRCC's men's and
women's teams won their
33rd and 25th consecutive
National Junior College
Athletic Association cham-
pionship's on March 10 in
Buffalo, N.Y.
Pioneer athletes won 39
of 40 events helping IRCC
score 1122 points over the
four-day meet, while run-
ner up Lincoln College
scored 519.
"These kids really
stepped up, I couldn't have
asked for anything more,"


'These kids really stepped up, I couldn't
have asked for anything more.'

Frank Bradley
Indian River Community College swim coach


said head coach Frank
Bradley, who won NJCAA
coach of the year.
While the team effort
stood out, there were also
some individual perform-
ances that were just as
impressive.
Sophomore Gideon
Louw, who was named
NJCAA male swimmer of
the year, set national
records in the 100 and 200-
meter freestyle, while
three IRCC women Aman-
da Neubig, Kim Martella
and Natalia Buso, tied for
the NJCAA female swim-
mer of the year.


Freshmen diver's
Michael Wright and Billy
Beauregard anchored one
of the strongest diving
teams that IRCC has ever
had, placing first and sec-
ond in both the 1-and 3-
meter events. Wright, who
won both events was
named NJCAA male diver
of the year.
"I was pretty amazed
when it happened. It was
crazy, It didn't hit me until
the end of the meet," said
Wright. "I've heard stuff
about the past and about

men divers. But we came
strong and conquered."
The women divers were
outstanding also. Kayla
Purkiser, Danielle Mauser
and Stacey Crawley swept
the 3-meter diving event
and Purkiser and Mauser
went 1-2 in the 1-meter.
With his athletes dominat-
ing the national meet, it
was no surprise that diving
coach Dave Suba won
NJCAA diving coach of the
year.
"We had a great team, we
came together really well,"
said Suba who will now
prepare for next year. "We
only lose one girl so it's
nice."
For Bradley, who was an
assistant at IRCC for one


year before taking over this
season, the title was his
first as a head coach. He
almost quit swimming two
years ago after a stint on
the coaching staff at the
University of South Caroli-
na, but decided to give it
another go when a posi-
tion opened up with the
Pioneers.
Being the top man at a
program with the history
that IRCC has was chal-
lenging and intimidating
for Bradley at first, but get-
ting a, national title in his
first year at the helm of a
program let him know that
he made the right decision
to come back to the sport
he has been around most
of his life.


"I felt like it was a good
opportunity to come back.
It's great to see all the
ideas and things I wanted
to try. When you're an
assistant it's hard to do
some of those things,"
Bradley said. "It's a little
different, when all the
decisions fall on your
chair and your lap, and
your like 'is this the right
decision?' At the end of
the year when you start
going into the bigger
meet's it's nice to see the
work you put in all season
pay off, and go in the right
direction. All in all it's defi-
nitely a different feeling.
I'll look forward to the
years to come."

Museum
From page D1


The collection boasts
autographs from nearly
every player in the
Baseball Hall of Fame
and numerous other
artifacts from the last
century of the sport,
including handwritten
letters from players and
managers, game-used
equipment and authen-
tic pennants form yester-
year.
There is even a chair
form the old Comiskey
Park in Chicago that
hangs from the back wall
of the exhibit.
"To me, the collection
really represents the
history of baseball. More
than any other sport of
American culture," reads
the panel outside the
showcase, written by
Ginsberg. "One only has
to look at the baseball
terms that have become
part of our everyday
language to fail is to
strike out, to be success-
ful is to hit a home run,
to fool someone is to
throw them a curveball -
to understand how
deeply the sport is
ingrained in our society."
As popular as the
exhibit is to museum
regulars, it is still a
surprise to people
venturing into the
building for the first
time.
Both Hendrix and the
director of development
Ellen Peitz, are currently
thinking of new and '
different ways to get the
general public reac-
quainted with the exhib-
it.
The sell should be an
easy one, since the
Treasure Coast is already
a hotbed for baseball
fans and young talent.
There are three major
league baseball teams
(the St. Louis Cardinals
and Florida Marlins
share a complex in


Jupiter and the New York
Mets are based in Port St.
Lucie) that hold spring
training within 50 miles
of the museum, and
another just up the road
in Vero Beach.
One thing they believe
will help the exhibit's
popularity will be when
the museum moves to a
new home in 2009. With
a new building on the
way, each exhibit will be
rearranged to better
show of the collectables.
Hendrix, who cheers
for her beloved Boston
Red Sox each year, can't
wait to get started.
"I would love to take a
research trip to the Hall
of Fame," said Hendrix.
But for now, the
exhibit remains one of
the hidden gems in
Stuart
Among the items you
will find:

--Baseball bats used by
baseball legends Josh
Gibson, Roberto
Clemente and Ty Cobb.

--A baseball signed by
the entire 1932 NewYork
Yankees, which included
nine Hall of Famers
including Babe Ruth and
Lou Gherig.
--A diary kept by Ty
Cobb in 1942.

--A section dedicated
to the Negro leagues,
highlighted by an
authentic Washington
Grays jersey and cap.

--Hundreds of auto-
graphed baseball cards
and pennants.

The Elliot museum is
located at 825 NE Ocean
Blvd. in Stuart. For mor

exhibit and the museum,

,ehnolog ing upaded on the latest irons

Technology being upgraded on the latest irons


adiF M ch 23 2007


Now that the busy
season is about
over, it is daylight
until later in the evening
and the weather is nearly
perfect, most of us are
ready to concentrate on
our games.
At the PGA Merchandise
'Show in late January, I saw
a lot of products that could
help nearly everyone's
game. I've already told you
about the drivers and
hybrids. Now it's time for
irons and wedges.
With so much new
technology coming out in
those long clubs, it stands
to reason that some of it
flows down to the irons
and wedges. With all the
talk about high MOI
(moment of inertia) in
woods and even putters,
engineers are finding ways
to put that same technolo-
gy into irons.
Tour Edge's Exotics
division is on the cutting
edge when it comes to
technology.
The new EX-3 irons
feature an inner-cup face,
making them the first to
use this technology. The
face is encased in a 304
stainless steel body,
creating a higher spring
effect for increased
distance.
What is even better is
that by using this face, the

JAMES STAMMER.
Golf columnist

engineers were able to
move more weight back in
the head to produce
higher MOI and unprece-
dented forgiveness.
For the better golfer
looking for feel, workabili-
ty and forgiveness in an
iron, Exotics' new forged
blade may be just the
thing.
Forged from 1025
carbon steel with a face
entirely CNC milled to
supply the largest grooves
and face roughness
allowed by the USGA,
these beauties also have a
weight bar strategically
placed on every iron to
provide control, feedback
and the perfect trajectory.


One company expand-
ing on its already break-
through technology is F2
Golf. The company's face-
forward technology, first
introduced in its wedge
lineup, puts the leading
edge of the club ahead of
the hosel.
After enjoying tremen-
dous success and acclaim
for its wedge line, F2 Golf
introduced an entire set of
irons at the show. While
the leading edge is not as
dramatically ahead as in
its wedges, company
founder and lead designer
Jeff Peterman managed to
create a club that incorpo-
rates all the game
improvement features of
his wedges into an entire
set.
The club looks very
much like any other iron at
address, but the dogleg-
type hosel puts the face of
the club in a similar
position as the company's
wedges. The results are
shots that easily fly long,
high and straight. I was
shocked at how easy it was
to hit these irons well.
Unconvinced, I acquired a
set of my own, only to
confirm my earlier find-
ings.


.Right in our neighbor-
hood is the headquarters
for Nicklaus Golf. Just off
Interstate 95 in West Palm "
Beach, Jack's company
continues to put out some
great products.
The new High CT 2007
irons feature an ultra-thin
face with a think oval
center and milled perime-
ter. What does this mean
in English? The ball stays
on the face just a little
longer than with most
irons, giving you better
feel, more accuracy and
forgiveness.
PowerBilt's Citation
Premium irons boast a 431
stainless undercut cavity
shell, coupled with an
aerospace titanium face
that features multi-
thickness construction to
maximize MOI and COR.
Two tungsten weights
low and deep in the head
lower the center of gravity
and add to the forgiveness
of the club.
The most important
aspect of any wedge is its
feel. If you ever hit a wedge
from Maruman Golf, you
will know exactly what I
mean. The company's new
KS Wedge series, named
for the clubs designer,


master craftsman Kenzo
Sugiyama, offers a unique
performance-enhancing
double forged process
using a S25C soft metal.
Sugiyama's sculpturedV-
grooves on the faceline, in
addition to a microspin
finished surface, give shots
excellent spin perform-
ance no matter where on
the face the ball is struck.
He also inserts the shaft 33
percent deeper into the
hosel than industry
standards, resulting in a
more integrated feel and a
higher moment of inertia.
The result is a wedge
that feels like butter and
performs magically.
Bridgestone Golf
debuted its West Coast
design wedges at the show.
The new CAD-driven
design features less
bounce in the toe and heel
areas, allowing for greater
versatility. The wedges are
also made from soft 8620
carbon steel with milled
faces for consistency and
feel.
Now is the perfect time
for you to check out some
new equipment. Now that
you have that technologi-
cally advanced driver in
your bag, it's time to put


the latest engineering
advances to use with your
other clubs.
