Pet food

BY RITA HART

MARTIN COUNTY -
More than one month after
Menu Foods, the largest
private-label manufacturer
of wet pet food products in
North America, announced
what they termed a "pre-
cautionary recall" of dog
and cat food manufactured
at their facilities in the
United States, confusion
still surrounds the cause of
the tainted food and how
widespread a problem it is.
On March 24, it was
announced that New York
State Food Laboratory sci-
entists had discovered a
toxin called aminopterin
present in pet food that was
provided to them by Menu
Foods. However, in a press
conference on March 30,
Menu Foods president and
chief executive officer Paul
Henderson said'that other
scientists were unable -to
validate those findings.
"That is, they were
unable to find the toxin
called aminopterin in our
pet food, or in any of the

substance abuse preven-
tion program funded by
Children's Services Council
of Martin County.
Project Northland is a
model program used
throughout the country
and has been proven to
reduce substance abuse in
youth.
Erin Madden, coordina-
tor for the project, said the
program is one part of Mar-
tin County schools' social
studies curriculum.
"There are three parts to
it; school curriculum, peer
leadership and community
development," said Ms.


Madden.
Through the program,
Ms. Madden and a preven-
tion specialist train sixth-
and seventh-graders to lead
activities in the classroom
when the teachers are pres-
ent.
"We are creating positive
role models," said Ms. Mad-
den.
Ms. Madden said the idea
behind Summer Kick Off is
to help youth get involved
in pro-social activities, gain
skills and build for their
future.
"It helps youth develop
more protective factors or
developmental assets than


risk factors, including posi-
tive adult role models,
peer-leadership and com-
munity service," said Ms.
Madden.
Billed as one-stop shop-
ping, the event will have a
variety of local agencies
and businesses for infor-
mation on camps, jobs, vol-
unteer opportunities and

Earth

festival

fuillof


activities
BY RITA HART
Staff writer


STUART The year was
1970, and before it was
over, Earth Day had been
celebrated for the first
time, the Environmental
Protection Agency had
been created and the Clean
Air Act had been amended
by Congress to set new
standards for national air
quality, auto emissions and
anti-pollution standards.
Fast forward to 2007.
Recycling is part of our
daily lives, energy-efficient
appliances are in our
homes and hybrid cars are
part of our culture.
However, the fact that
Earth Day is still celebrated
annually is testament that
the Earth still needs pro-
tection.
The owner of The Knowl-
edge Tree Bookstore in Stu-
art is keenly aware of that
fact, and hopes to raise the
public's awareness as well
by sponsoring, along with
Natural Awakenings maga-
zine, the first Earth Day
Festival on Saturday, April
21 at Memorial Park in Stu-
art from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Admission is free.
The event, which; organ-
izers hope will become an
annual occurrence, will
include the opportunity to
buy raffle tickets for a boat,

HUTCHINSON ISLAND
- When 2-year-old birth-
day boy Kai Kampff of
Jensen Beach was asked by
his mom what he wanted
to do for his birthday, he
grinned and shouted
"Beach!"
Little Kai didn't know or
care that Bathtub Beach
just landed seventh on Tri-
pAdvisor.com's list of best
beaches in the U.S. for
families. He just instinc-
tively knew he had fun
there, and it would be a
cool place to celebrate his
second birthday.
The now famous, 1,080-
foot beach, is a magnet to


parents with small chil-
dren, and located at 1585
S.E. MacArthur Blvd.,
Hutchinson Island.
Kai's mother, Brittany
Ramsey, said she is a
native of the area and
started coming to Bathtub
Beach when Kai could
walk.
"Kai loves the rocks with
all the nooks and crannies
to play in and around,"
said Ms. Ramsey. "At 9-
months-old we started
bringing him here. He col-
lects shells, plays in the
surf and has a ball. The
water is much calmer here
and safer for him."
Many parents bring their
children to this beach,
which is the southernmost


public beach in Martin
County, because the surf is
calmer at the shoreline
due to a reef, which is
about 100 feet from shore.
The reef creates a unique
lagoon, creating a beach
option for children to
adapt to the ocean and
play safely.
Two lifeguards man the
beach to provide assis-
tance when needed.
Martin County lifeguard,
Doug Farley, said even
though it is calmer at
Bathtub Beach, parents
still need to keep and eye
on their little ones.
"The ocean can be as flat
as a lake and can still be

Replica of the Nina to dock in Stuart


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART A replica of
the "Nina," Christopher
Columbus' favorite ship
and the one that brought
him safely home after his
first voyage in 1492
across the Atlantic, will
be docked in Stuart for
four days, allowing visi-
tors the chance for a self-
guided tour of the vessel
during her stay.
From Thursday, May 3
through Sunday, May 6,
the "Nina" will be on dis-
play at the Harborage
Yacht Club, a day after
docking there.
This "Nina," built by
the Columbus Founda-
tion of the British Virgin
Islands, was created


entirely by

power tools.


hand and
use of any


Since 1992, the ship
has been used as a float-
ing museum "with the
purpose of educating
adults and children
alike.
The "Nina" has -an
impressive itinerary in
2007. From February
through the first week in
April, she was docked at
six different ports'
throughout Texas. Prior
to arriving in Stuart, she
will be docked at the
Civic Center in Lake
Charles, La., and four
days after leaving Stuart
she is expected to dock
in Georgia at the
Brunswick Landing
Marina.


"As our ship is shallow
drafted, we can go to lots
of places that other ships
can't, like up and down
rivers and canals," said
Adele-Janine Sanger, wife
of the "Nina's" Captain
Morgan Sanger.
"We have even been to
Nebraska with the ship,"
said Mrs. Sanger.
Teachers or groups of at
least 15 people may make
arrangements for a 30-
minute guided tour with a
crew member.
Unlike the "Santa
Maria," which was a cargo
vessel that ran aground
and sank on Dec. 24,
1492, both the "Pinta" and
the "Nina" were caravels,
sailing ships used by
explorers during the Age
of Discovery.

Martin Memorial's annual Scrubs Camp
registration now open
Students entering sixth, seventh and eighth grades who
are interested in the healthcare field may register until
May 22 for Martin Memorial Health System's annual
Scrubs Camp. The camp runs from Monday, June 18
through Friday, June 22 and will teach students about
basic first-aid techniques, diagnostic imaging and labo-
ratory tests and will also show students how a trauma
helicopter works. The students will participate in hands-
on learning and demonstrations, and will be able to
accompany healthcare professionals in the hospital.
Space is limited with only 10 slots available, so priority
will be given to students who have not attended Scrubs
Camp in the past.
The cost of the camp is $250, with a $100 non-refund-
able deposit required for reservation and the balance of
$150 due before May 22. The fees cover breakfasts and
lunches, scrub tops, stethoscopes and other supplies.

Ken and Dawn Ward of Palm City have filed a lawsuit

According to the lawsuit, which was filed April 10 in
Martin County, Samantha suffered a fractured ankle in

Manatee

Pocket

workshop

slated

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

A public workshop and
presentation about the
future dredging of the
Manatee Pocket will be
held Wednesday, April 18,
from 6 to 8 p.m. at the
Wolf High Technology
Center at Indian River
Community College,
Chastain Campus, in Port
Salerno.
The purpose of the
workshop is to provide an
update on progress being
made and to continue to
gather information and
comments from the pub-
lic. In particular, Martin

from people who live or
work near the Pocket and
also from those who use
it for recreational and
commercial purposes.
The Manatee Pocket
Navigation, Economic
and Environmental
Enhancement Project is a
Martin County-spon-
sored dredging program.
"Commercial and resi-
dential navigation in the
Pocket is being severely
impacted by sediments
that have built up over
time," said Richard
"Czlapinski, project man-
ager for Tetra Tech EC, the
engineering firm hired by
the County to coordinate
the project.
"The sediments" accu-
mulation has also led to
reduced water quality
and diminished marine
resources. Martin County
has secured funding for
initial phases of the
dredging design program
as an approach to solving
these problems," Czlap-
inski said in a release.
The topics and goals of
the public workshop to
be discussed are:
An update on all the
preliminary dredging
designs and the most
likely options
Status of permitting
activities
Updated cost and
funding information for
the project
Discussion of
requirements for water-
front property owners
who want to dredge
access channels concur-
rent with the County Pro-
ject
Progress on the project
to date includes:
Completion of a sedi-
ment and water quality
sampling program
Completion of bathy-
metric, geophysical and
marine resource surveys
Development of a
preliminary dredging
plan
Submission of regu-
latory permit applica-
tions and a response to
the first round of ques-
tions

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

or e-mail Rants-N-Raves@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous

Stop the abuse

I read an article in today's paper about cock fighting.
I think it's time for the politicians to get a little bit of
guts, and pass legislation that will stop this kind of ani-
mal abuse in the state of Florida.
Here's what I suggest:
If a person attends a cockfight, he gets five years in the
state penitentiary, no parole.
If a person is running a cockfight, ten years in the
state penitentiary, no parole.
If a person attends a dogfight, he gets five years in the
state penitentiary, no parole.
If a person is running a dogfight, ten years in the state
penitentiary, no parole.
If a person abuses animals, like in the puppy mills, ten
years in the state penitentiary, no parole.
It is time that we crack down on these people. It is dis-
gusting to have people in this county that do this kind
of thing to animals.
The only way we are going to change it is for the
politician to get enough guts to pass a law, and enough
judges to enforce the law, to get rid of these people one
way or the other.
I notice today that most of the people at those cock-
fights were Latinos. If they don't like this country, they
should get the heck out it. They don't have a right to
come here and abuse animals just because that's what
they did in their home country.
If they are not citizens, deport them. If they are citi-
zens, give them five to ten.
It will stop, one way or the other.

Criticizing Imus' critics

I would like to comment on the Imus thing.
Yes, Imus did say something that was off-color, which
was pretty stupid to say. But, I am watching Al Sharp-
ton he is supposed to be a reverend. I'd like to know
where his church is, and where he gets his credentials.
He looks like a "poverty pimp," or something.
Whatever else he is, he looks to me, and sounds to me
by the way he is speaking, to be a bigot, and a racist
from word go.
Talk about some guy losing his job; this guy has no job
to lose, but they ought to get rid of him.

Going after the wrong man

I have a few comments about what's going on in this
world today. This is coming from a hard working citizen
of Florida. \
You illegal aliens, get ready to get out of the country,
because that's coming.
Also, as to Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, if all they
can do for the black community is get Imus fired, that's
a sad thing.
What they should be doing, is going after the so-called
heroes of the black movement, like Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre,
and Ludacris. They're the ones who are demeaning the
black race, not the white people.
White people could give two bits.

Prosecute her

I would like to make a comment on Nancy Pelosi
going to Syria.
I think she should be prosecuted to the fullest extent
of the law. She sat down with a known enemy of the
United States, a terrorist nation, a nation that supports
terrorism, and probably funds terrorism.
She had no right going there. She should be prose-
cuted.

Comments to 'Let's have a Snowbird Tax'

This is in response to the comments on the snowbird
tax.
I think before people put their comments in a public
newspaper, they should get their facts straight.
For one, not all snowbirds are rich people, and for


most it is a stepping-stone to living there all year. Not
all people are just able to pick up and leave the states
they live immediately.
In response to the part on real estate taxes and home-
owner's insurance: Most of your snowbirds are paying
not just one time more, but two to two and a half times
more taxes than what you are paying for the privilege of
living there part time.
The snowbird's homeowner's insurance policies are
not only more than you pay, but covers less than your
policy, just because they can't be there all year whether
our homes are being taken care of or not.
Why should we have to pay the property taxes, and a. 1
percent increase in our sales tax, just because there are
some of you that are trying to push us out?
When the hurricanes and storms hit, the snowbirds
are right beside the rest of you helping to fix up their
homes, and being there to help support friends, and the
clean up of the community.
If it wasn't for your, as yod put them, "ti htwad and
rude" snowbirds, half of your businesses woulcd't be in
business anymore. .
Keep trying to push the snowbirds ott, and see hat it
does to the Florida economy.
You'll be begging them to come back when you can't
afford to live there any more yourself.
What will you do when the people who are paying
your share and their share of the taxes are no longer
there to put up with the abuse that people like you
hand out?
Don't lump us all together. We have good and bad in
all citizens, and I think your attitude is showiig'the bad.
Thank God, not all people are like you. I, for one, have
wonderful friends who have supported me all the way
in our strive to live in Florida full time-.
Come on fellow snowbirds, respond to this article.
Personally I am tired of being bashed by the people
that claim to be so friendly. One of the main qualities
that brings us to Florida is the friendliness of the people
and the beauty of the land.

More on the Snowbird tax

With regard to the snowbird tax, was the: person who
wrote that article about Canadians ashamed to print
their name?
Such insults! Restaurants thrive when we are here,
and if I added up the money I have spent in 30 years, I
think the city would be happy.
Newspaper should insist that the name of the ranter
be printed as well.
This is from one who loves it here.

A suggestion for reducing property taxes
As a young man, I was privileged to work with excep-
tional editors and reporters during the time when
newspapers were respected for their investigative
expertise.
I would hope that the Hometown News mightcontin-
ue that practice, and provide its readership with the
vital information it needs.


Let's face it, a lot of people desire to live in the Sun-
shine State. This is one of the many reasons why prop-
erty values have skyrocketed in the last four or five
years. The surge in property taxes has resulted in the
state's citizens being forced out of their homes to look
to resettle in other parts of the country.
The finger of blame has been pointed at the land
developers, quick money real estate investors, nest-
building snowbirds, and the dreaded county property
appraisers.
The devaluation of.our dollar (inflation?), along with
supply and demand'is some of the reasons why the
value of property has continued to rise.
Thank goodness, the ownership of property has
proved worthwhile.
I believe that readership requires and deserves some-
thing that only the newspaper can provide a little
investigative research, some time spent delving into the
public records, and a concise article on why property
taxes have soared.
Millage, millage, millage!
It doesn't appear that anything affects property taxes
like good old millage.
If the value of a home is doubled, then the assessed
millage will result in a doubling of the ampult of taxes
obtained.
An elected, or appointed official, can proclaim that
they are holding the line on millage, and m6or than pad
their departmental budget. 4"
With increased funds, they can bump up their budgets,
increase salaries, hire more public employees, build
newer facilities, increase discretiofiary spending, and
appear like diligent public servants rather than a mod-
ern day John (Q.) Dillinger.
Providing a small increase in the Homestead Exemp-
tion, or raising Florida's sales tax, isn't the answer.
It is up to newspapers, and other media who want to
help their readers.
Shine some light on just what kind of revenue&gather-
ing is taking place in our towTis, cities, school.boards,
county governments, and assorted state governmental
taxing agencies.

Require propeller guards ,

There's a lot of talk on the television, and in the news-
papers, about saving the manatees.
Why not pass a state law requiring all small vessels
,operating in Florida's inland waters to have propeller
guards? These are wide steel bands that encircle the
propeller blades to protect them.

End the war

I'd like to make a couple of remarks aboutbur current
war.
SFirst, since the 19th century, the U.S.A. has been using
the word "terrorists" to terrify the publicinto 'support-
ing whatever conflict we were involved hiifat the time.

Rants
From page A6
Uncle Sam has always demonized whomever we
chose to be against, ofteri reclaiming them as friends
once the war was over.
Right now, no one really knows exactly who the enemy
is, or why they are the enemy. We just know them as
terrorists, because we're told they are against us.
We also know that thousands of our troops are either
dying or returning home maimed for life. This must
end now. There is no way to win this type of "war."
My second point is that our local Christian religious
leaders have completely fallen down in their job con-
cerning war and violence against our "enemy."
It is their principal duty to support the teachings of
Jesus Christ, and this they have not done.
No. Christian may fight a war for any reason. Turn the
other cheek, love your enemies, and return good for
evil, comprise the essence of Jesus' message. I chal-
lenge our local religious leaders and Christians to do
the right thing, and condemn this pitiful war against the
Iraqi people.
However, I sympathize with priests and ministers
because they would probably lose their job should they
defend true Christianity. Remember that Jesus was
killed for his radical philosophy about loving all people
and doing harm to no one.

Love the South
I have been a Florida resident in excess of 30 years,
lived in working man's communities, and high-end
locations, listed below are some of the "Heads Up"
things that nobody talks about or recognizes, but
believe me are practiced on a regular basis. Perhaps it is
due to the below poverty level wages that employers
pay, or maybe it is a carry-over from the old Civil War
reconstruction days mentality.
*Real estate companies.
Usually someone's brother-in-law makes up under the
table strip-out crews that remove and replace with
cheaper items things like overhead fans, air condi-
tioners, ranges, refrigerators, pool pumps, doors, cabi-
nets, and anything else they can make a buck on.
This is usually done to property when the owners are
out of state.
Never buy with contents" listed property anything
of value will be replaced with flea market junk by the
time you take possession.
*Retail stores, supermarkets, and drug stores
A person really has to watch at the checkout counters.
How often have you gotten home, and an item is miss-
ing that you paid for?
If you go back, you are told you must have left it in the
cart, even though everything was packed in master
bags.
Make sure to look under the little shelf where the cred-
it card machine sits.
In the case of high-price items, look in the package, if
possible, before it is purchased to see if the items that


are supposed to be inside are all there.
Its been documented that most retail theft is by an
employee, but why should the consumer pay for the
missing item, or be told to contact the manufacturer?
How about high-priced perfume poured into another
container and taken by employee on night.hours?
They have figured out how to make money to supple-
ment the low wages.
*Laundry service
Mark everything with a laundry marker pen, record
your items, and monogram expensive items. You will
often be missing things when you pick up the laundry.
*Used cars
Take pictures of accessories, radios, etc. The items will
be removed and replaced with cheaper ones, but the
salesman will just happen to know where an original
can be purchased.
*Neighbors
Great guy Bubba," but good at stealing sprinkler
heads, and if you trust him to watch your property
when you go up North, guess how your pool or sprinkler
pump got exchanged for an old rusty one?
Yes, theft takes place up north, but not usually on this
level.

Go ahead, tap my phone
The Democrats are so naive; they are against the Patri-
ot Act.
I personally wouldn't care if the FBI or the CIA listened
in on any of my phone calls. What are the Democrats
afraid of?
We need to give the FBI and the CIA any tools they
need to protect us.
Don't the Democrats have anything to do besides try-
ing to get rid of (Attorney General Alberto) Gonzales for
firing the attorneys who probably weren't doing their
jobs.
My thought is if President Bush fires him, the Republi-
cans would lose some of the Hispanic vote.
That's what the Democrats are up to. They want the
Hispanic vote.

Knock, knock
Please help me, somebody.
I have a very nosey neighbor. She never comes over
unless she wants to borrow something or she wants me
to do something for her.
Every time I have company, she's be-bopping over to
borrow something. She wants to see who is here.
She tells me when to cut my grass and when to clean
out my rose garden.
Please, give me some kind of answer how I can cope
with a very nosey neighbor.

Stop chopping down trees
Is there some way we could say it fresh, say it louder,
say it brighter so that people could hear the words:
STOP CHOPPING DOWN TREES.


Trees take hundreds of years to grow. They are the
shelter and food source for our friends, the wild critters.
At the end of my block, a woman who never walks,
only drives, has her husband summon the city to hack
down the nature wall that protects my backyard from
the heavy traffic. Four kinds of birds nest there, and
there are mangroves entwined in and amongst the
other foliage.
"Messy looking," is what they think. I think that life is
messy. Death is neat.
The birds and the lizards, squirrels, opossums all seem
to agree.

Sales tax increase hurts disabled vets
Doing away with property tax sounds great to many
people, but increasing the sales tax will effectively be a
tax increase for the ones drawing disability pay.
A disabled military veteran pays no federal income tax
on disability pay.
Since disability pay is used for living expenses, then it
would be a tax increase on the ones (who) can least
afford it.

Snowbirds contribute to state's economy
My comments concern the rant, "Let's have a snow-
bird tax" wherein someone mentioned that snowbirds
cause inconveniences to year-round Florida residents
who must foot the bill for keeping the state going.
I just wonder if you know that tourism, with (79.7) mil-
lion visitors in 2004, ... has an economic impact of $57
billion on Florida's economy (statistics according to
www.visitflorida.com)
Most Canadian snowbirds (as well as other northern
U.S. snowbirds) have (a) second home here in Florida.
We also pay the ever-increasing property taxes and
insurance rates, as well as make purchases at retail
stores and local service providers (just like) local Florida
residents.
Now, as far as taking the best stuff from garage sales, I
guess you will just have to get up earlier in the morning.
I have met many snowbirds over the years from Cana-
da and other northern U.S. states as well as local Florid-
ians and they are very polite, pleasant and interesting
people.
It is sad to categorize a particular group because of a
bad encounter.
All this said, I enjoy coming down to Florida every year
and intend to do so in the future and look forward to
meeting other interesting snowbirds and local Floridi-
ans.

Senior years may not be so golden
Homeowners with escalating insurance costs think
they have it bad?
Just try being on Social Security, Medicare and
maybe some sort of managed-care health plan.

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART The owner of
SolBonito Tans, formerly
known as Executive Tans,
understands how much
Floridians love to look tan
and fit on the beach.
Therefore, it makes per-
fect sense that the business,
located in Stuart Square at
the southeast comer of Fed-
eral Highway and Monterey
Road, provides both services
in a safe way.
Christopher Conroy,
owner of SolBonito, has
been a certified personal
trainer since 2000. Once
employed as both an electri-
cal engineer and an envi-
ronmental engineer in his
home state of Pennsylvania,
Mr. Conroy and his wife
bought their home on the
Treasure Coast in 2003, and
Mr. Conroy began devoting
his personal training experi-
ence full-time in his new
business.
He has worked with
clients from 22 to 80-years-
old and has performed
more than 4,000 training
sessions.
"I offer weight training
with a total body workout,
primarily with free weights,"
said Mr. Conroy.
Mr. Conroy offers 45-
minute workouts by
appointment, once he has
completed a fitness analysis
that includes a body fat eval-
uation, health screening
and goal-setting consulta-
tion.
"I've been doing this for so
long I can tell when you
walk in if you've ever done
this before, or if you are ath-
letic," said Mr. *Conroy, who
is certified by the American
Council on Exercise.
Mr. Conroy said one thing
that sets him apart from
other personal trainers is
that he offers a private work-
out.
"One-on-one is the buzz-
word," said Mr. Conroy "You
are getting an appointment
with me, so you are less like-
ly to miss your session."
Mr. Conroy offers basic
nutritional guidance, helps
develop an aerobic exercise
plan and resistance-training


program and offers continu-
ous program development
and evaluation.
In addition to the person-
al training, SolBonito Tans
offers, as the name implies,
tanning services.
With everyone leading
busy lives, Mr. Conroy
believes time is the reason
why those that live in the
Sunshine State may benefit
from SolBonito Tans.
"You can get a tan in 15
minutes, rather than spend-
ing eight hours on the
beach," he said.
In addition, Mr. Conroy
said Floridians prefer' to
have that perfect tan before
they are seen in their
bathing suits in public.
"When we go to the
beach, we like to be tan
already," he said.
SolBonito Tans' employ-
ees are certified tan profes-
sionals.
Customers can. choose
from three different levels of
tanning- one bed is used for
15 minutes, a second offers
a 12-minute stand-up tan-
ning experience, and the
third is a 12-minute tan in a
luxury bed, whichis a high-
powered bronzing bed for a
deeper, darker tan.
SolBonito Tans is commit-
ted to safe tanning. Florida
law requires a 24-hour time
period between tanning ses-
sions, and SolBonito Tans
visits are recorded in the
company's computer so
that this can be tracked.
SolBonito Tans, which
uses Ergoline tanning beds,
also participates in "Project
Smart Teen," a program
whereby teens are taught
how to avoid sunburn as a
lifelong commitment, and
where they and their par-
ents are taught the differ-
ence between sunburn and
tanning in moderation,
both indoors and out.
"Our tanning beds pro-
vide a constant controlled
environment, where the sun
does not," said Mr. Conroy.
SolBonito Tans is located
at 2234 S.E. Federal High-
Way, Stuart. For more infor-
mation or to make an
appointment, call (772) 288-
5380.

BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer
NEW ORLEANS For
the fourth year, Hometown
News has been voted one of
the nation's top three com-
munity papers by the Asso-
ciation of Free Community
Papers.
During the annual
awards ceremony in New
Orleans last weekend, AFCP
judges selected Hometown
News as the "Most Out-
standing Publication" of
home delivered newspa-
pers with 25 percent or
more editorial content.
In 2004, Hometown News
received the third place
overall award from AFCP,
after only one year of publi-
cation. In 2005, Hometown
News won first place overall,
and in 2006, Hometown
News received second place


overall.
"We're the reigning No. 1
in both associations (IFPA
and AFCP)," said Steve
Erlanger, publisher of
Hometown News. "To the
best of my knowledge, that's
never happened before,
which is about as good a
result as you can ask for."
One AFCP judge com-
mented that Hometown
News is "Clearly an out-
standing publication that
features good photography,
excellent local editorial, and
lots of color ads in an easy-
to-read format with high
quality printing."
Hometown News gar-
nered 12 overall awards,
including "Best Internet
Home Page" and "Best Pre-
sentation of Retail Display
Advertising on the Inter-
net."
Hometown News photog-
raphers took five awards.
Brevard County photogra-
pher Kaitlin Norton won
"Best Original Black &
White Photography Used in
a News Event." Chief pho-


tographer Mitch Kloorfain
took home second place
honors in the same catego-
ry.
Palm Beach County pho-
tographer Hobie Hiler
received first and third
place honors for "Best Orig-
inal Color Photography
Used in a Feature or Gener-
al Interest Story."
Mr. Kloorfain also
received honorable men-
tion in the category of "Best
Original Color Photography
Used in a News Event."
Three Hometown News
advertisements, designed
by the Fort Pierce team,
received third-place hon-
ors. More than 4,500 entries
were submitted by nearly
150 companies nationwide.

Scrub Camp is a unique

camp for kids in Stuart


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
STUART Ten middle
school students will spend
a week at "Scrubs Camp"
at Martin Memorial Hospi-
tal North this summer
studying health care.
Linda Ampol, library
resource coordinator at
Martin Memorial Health
Systems, said this is the
fifth year that Martin
Memorial has hosted the
event.
"It is not your average
camp and has become so
popular that we have to
turn kids down," said Mrs.
Ampol. "The day parents
could sign up their kids for
Scrub Camp the phones


.Did You Say 2 for 1

went wild. We could have
easily had 40 kids the first
day of sign up."
The camp can only host
10 Martin County students
entering sixth-, seventh-
and eighth-grades.
Because there is very limit-
ed space available, priority
is given to students who
have not attended Scrubs
Camp before.
Allie Rosenberg, 12,
attended the camp last
year and thought it was
great..
"If I could, I would go
every year," said Allie. "It
was a lot of fun. I have an
interest in cancer research
as a future career."
Mrs. Ampol said that
Martin Memorial provides
the camp to expose kids at
an early age to professions


in the medical field.
"Every department is
involved during the week,"
she said. "It takes the
whole hospital to run the
camp. All areas of the hos-
pital are used, and whoev-
er is on duty becomes the
teacher for that particular
area."
Campers will wear an
official uniform, which is a
set of small scrubs, and go
behind the scenes from
floor to floor learning
about the various health
care jobs with in the hospi-
tal.
They will. learn about
everything from diagnostic
imaging and laboratory
testing; discover how a
trauma helicopter works;

Today's youth
deserve more praise

This letter is in
response to the negative
comments I hear about
the young people of
today.
I work in a high school
and experience
teenagers on a daily
basis.
The majority are
decent, law-abiding, car-
ing, intelligent, well-
adjusted young people.
They work toward their
goals in life, make decent
grades, hold down part-
time jobs to help their
parents with costs and
strive to get into college
or a trade school in order
to have a decent life.
Why do so many older
people (say) they worry
for the future because of
the young people of
today?
Socrates, a man who
was considered very wise
several (thousands of)
years ago, once (said) he
was worried about the
future because of the
young people of that
time.
Society is still function-
ing.
Unfortunately, the


teenagers who get into
the news, on television
and in newspapers, are
the ones (who) commit
crimes, kill someone,
drink and drive, etc. (I
am excepting Home-
town News, as you do
have articles about the
young people who do a
lot of good).
These young people are
our future leaders, and I
am not afraid.
Incidentally, my age is
46. So my opinion is not
based on my age.

Brits humiliated
by Iran

Since the newspapers
have not dealt with the
significance of the kid-
napping of 15 British
sailors and Marines, I
shall attempt to do so.
First, look at Britain. It
is a toothless, bankrupt
tiger with a Medieval-
style of government, use-
less royalty and a prime
minister.
Look at the sickening
antics of the younger
royalty.
Tony Blair knows he is
inadequate for the job,
so he hangs on Bush and
asserts he is a loyal ally.
Britain has been
annoying Iran with calls
for them. to stop nuclear
activities.
Iran has ignored them


and to prove how weak
Britain is, kidnapped 15
of its best sailors and
Marines.
There was not a thing
the tiger could do, so
after humiliating Britain
for the world to see, the
men served no further
purpose and were
released as heroes.
Actions speak louder
than words.

The orange and
green Irish

I'm calling about the
March 23 Grammy Guru
column.
She was talking about
St. Patrick's Day and
about not wearing
orange.
My family was from
Belfast, Ireland, and they
were known as the
"orange Irish." That
meant they were protes-
tant.
The "green Irish" are
Catholics. That is what I
was always taught and
I'm 88 years old.
St. Patrick's Day was
always a solemn day in
Ireland. They didn't raise
"old Ned" like they do
here the U.S. of A.
I just wanted Grammy
Guru to know that
orange means you're
Protestant and green
means you're Catholic.


Camp
From page A10


practice basic first-aid techniques; make
their own desserts in the kitchen, and
even see the air conditioning unit that
cools the facility.
By the end of the week, the campers will
have been involved with the real opera-
tion of Martin Memorial North Hospital.
Allie said her favorite part of the camp
was the day they spent in the emergency


room.
"I really liked being in ER. We learned
how to bandage wounds," she said.
Mrs. Ampol said the one-week camp for
the hospital is a huge undertaking, but
well worth it.
"The campers find it fascinating," she
said. "Nobody lectures them, most of
their study is hands on. They love it."

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

Virtually every car dealer Of educa
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistit
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much 1ligh
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.


ti
ra
!,


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 tot
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
toamers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
one, level or used car. You can do the
same.
ion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
tidon 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.

Croatia, 'pearl of the Adriatic'


Croatia is one of the
new "must see"
Il.* lain iihli ,;i .
Rich in history, art,
culture, architecture, wine
and gourmet cuisine,
( ii,;11i I ;isi:verytld ing the
most savvy of traveler

Witl i tI sIublime J i'treicl of
Adriaric coast, Croatia has
long bi.n regarded as one
of the most beautiful parts
,Id I'urope, andis often
called the "new Riviera."
The booming tourist
ii idtu try thi.it was interrupt-
ed by war in the early 14)90s
has swept back in force, and
visitors are flocking to its
string of coastal and island
resorts.
Officially called the
Republic of Croatia, this
pearl on the Adriatic Sea sits
at the crossroads of Central
Europe, sharing boarders
with Slovenia and Hungary
to the north, Serbia to the
east, Bosnia and Herzegov-
ina, and Montenegro to the
south as well as a sea
boarder with Italy to the
west.
Many major cruise lines
offer trips that visit the city
of Dubrovnik on the
southern tip of Croatia as
either an embarkation port
or a port of call.
Those who visit should
make the most of their time
in this ancient city that has
been sitting on the Dalmat-
ian Coast for some 1,300
years.
This historic port was
named a UNESCO World
Heritage Site in 1979.
Extensive restoration
efforts began shortly after
the SerbianWar.You can
visit sites such as the
Dominican and Franciscan
monasteries, Rector's Palace
and Dubrovnik Cathedral.
Marbled paved squares
and fountains are just a few
of the many antiquities that
remain as they were years
ago.
Surrounded by 10th
century walls, Dubrovnik is
a must see for the historian
and art lover alike. This is
one of the most beautiful
towns in Europe. It has
everything: A magnificent
natural setting, an old town
unspoiled by development
and lively cultural life.
Perhaps more than
anything, it has a mystique
that not evenVenice can
rival.
Whether traveling by sea
or touring Croatia by car,
you are guaranteed spectac-
ular scenery and breathtak-
ing views.
The translucent Adriatic
Sea, and picturesque towns,
are surrounded by more
than 1,000 islands anchored
offshore. Most of these
islands are uninhabited,

JENSEN BEACH A
unique fundraiser raised
$2,000, but also gave a group
of ladies a fun night out.
On April 13, forty women
showed up to cut, paste, do
stamping and design their
scrapbooks at Treasure
Coast Community Church
in Jensen Beach, in efforts
to raise money for
Hibiscus Children's
Center of Jensen Beach.
The Hibiscus Children's
Center was founded in 1985.
The 36-bed facility is located
in Jensen Beach, and is a
nonprofit charitable organi-
zation fighting child abuse
with care, counseling and
interventions.
Carol Mularski, wife of the
lead pastor of Treasure Coast
Community Church, said
Hibiscus House is one of the


key ministries they support.
"In James 1:27 it tells us
(believers) to look after
orphans and widows," said
Mrs. Mularski. "And Hibis-
cus House is an organiza-
tion that does that. So we
support it."
She said the brainstorm
for the unique fundraiser
came to a member of their
congregation, Jessica Zyak,
during a Sunday morning
service.
Mrs. Zyak said Pastor Gor-
don's sermon challenged
her, and the brainstorm fol-
lowed.
"Pastor asked us to write
down something we were
passionate about. So I wrote
down 'helping children who
are abused," said Mrs. Zyak.
"We were then asked to
trade cards with someone
and pray for each other."
She said later that day she
was thinking about the


group of women at their
congregation and how cre-
ative they were.
With that in mind, and
knowing that Hibiscus
House is a charity her
church supports, she began
thinking of a fundraiser that
was fun and affordable.
She named the event
"Croppin' atTC3."
The forty women paid an
entrance fee of $25, and
were also asked to bring an
additional $25 to donate to
the charity.
From 6 p.m. to midnight
women were found crop-
ping and stamping, eating a
gourmet dinner, munching
on snacks, laughing and
chatting, and best of all,
helping children.

ter, call (772) 334-9311, ext.

Earth Day
From page Al


Coalition, an exhibition of a
Prius car donated for view-
ing by Toyota of Stuart,
speakers on such subjects
as global warming and river
pollution, live music, food
and children's activities.
Debbie Welch, owner of
The Knowledge Tree, said
she was a frequent organiz-
er of Earth Day events when


she was a college student.
"I wanted to have one in
Stuart that was extremely
educational, with lots of
good food and music. It's a
replica of what I did in col-
lege. Putting this on was like
riding a bike," said Mrs.
Welch.
Mrs. Welch said the pub-
lic is invited to participate
in a mid-day meditation
ceremony in the grass at
Memorial Park, which will
be led by a yoga studio. Its
purpose, said Mrs. Welch, is
to "connect with the earth."
The day will end at 5 p.m.


with what Mrs. Welch called
an "earth energy healing
circle," where participants
will sit in a circle with
drums.
"I am hoping everyone
will bring their drums with
them, so we can all cele-
brate Earth Day together,"
said Mrs. Welch.

High School
students to
perform 'The
Last Five Years'

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The Barn Theatre recent-
ly added the musical "The
Last Five Years" to its
spring line up, greenlight-
ing its first-ever all student
production during its
main stage season
"We had a production
this year that showed off
our teen talent, along side
our veteran actors, but this
one is extra special," said
board member and pro-
ducer Linda Hund-West.
"We've got an 18-year-old
director and two cast
members, all in high
school, who will carry the
entire show."
Hund-West explained
that one of the factors the
board considered was that
all three students repre-
sent three different area
high schools. Promotional
plans call for a grassroots
effort to get the word out
to all the high schools in
the tri-county area.
"We expect to see a lot
of new audience mem-
bers for this show, some
of whom will hopefully
become long-time
patrons, volunteers or
even future performers.
Over the past few years
we have demonstrated
our support for teens by
awarding scholarships to
area high school stu-
dents who participate
either on or off our
-stage," she said.
Written and composed
by Jason Robert Brown,
"The Last Five Years" tells
the story of a couple in
their twenties struggling
to make their- relation-
ship work. What makes
the musical both unique
and intriguing is that the
.male tells his version- of
:the story from beginning
to end, but the female
-tells hers from the end of
the relationship back to
the beginning all
through song.

Peanuts characters to come to life


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
"You' re a Good Man, Charlie
Brown," which will run from April
26 to 28 at Jensen Beach High
School, is the first musical put on
by the fledgling Jensen Beach The-
ater Arts Department, and director
Amanda Dillon thinks the six-char-
acter show is just the right size.
"It's working out perfectly," she
said. "We're building a depart-
ment. This is our first musical;
once it's successful, we can go for.
the big one. For now, this one is
the right size at the right time,
with the right cast. It's working
out very nicely, and I'm very


STAR SCOPES
James Tucker


Week of 04-20-07


Aries-March 21-April 19
Mercury in Aries gives you a strong mental boost
this week. When a strong first impression speaks
to you from the inner voice, raise it up, take action
and see positive results happen. Few things can
hold you back when you trust this divine inner
guidance. Refuse to let ego-based people con-
vince you that their ways are best. You know. You
were born with the gift of strong instincts, heart
and follow through. This is what makes you the


proud of them."
The cast includes Michael Brow-
er as Charlie Brown; Tayliz
Rodriguez as Lucy Van Pelt; Claris-
sa Knaff as Snoopy; Charles Gay as
Schroeder; Richard Kopf as Linus
Van Pelt; and Sophia Rinke as Sally
Brown. The musical director is
Bryan Phoebus; the pit orchestra
director is Tin McGinley, the chore-
ographer is Lindsay Davis and the
costumer is Sara Davis.
"Basically, the play is a day in the
life of the Peanuts characters," Mrs.
Dillon said. "There's Lucy, always
giving Charlie Brown a hard time,
and Snoopy, who has one scene
where he sits on his doghouse as
the Red Baron, and Schroeder,


playing his piano. It's loosely con-
nected songs and vignettes, kind of
like watching the cartoon."
The show has constantly chang-
ing sets, so the prop crew and run-
ning crew are kept busy, keeping
the flow going with out long pauses
for cumbersome scene changes.
Mrs. Dillon has used costumes that
suggest the characters; Snoopy's
costume suggests the famous
pooch without the actor being
dressed as a dog, using the man-
nerisms we associate with him.
The show was originally per-
formed off-Broadway in 1967, and
on Broadway .in 1971, and while

leader of the Zodiac.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
This is your time of the year to shine. The sun is in
your sign. Now is the time to move your main
projects forward. It's time to make your causes
known. You can't change the past. What is done is
done. You can sow new seeds and help them
grow. You can do this. You are Taurus, the strong
earth. No one in the Zodiac is more grounded and
capable of getting things done than you. Follow
through on the desires in your heart, and you will
be amazed at what you create.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
The moon and Venus are in your sign now. Both of
these influence the heart and feelings. The mes-
sage is to do what you love and leave other things
alone right now. There is a season for everything.
Emotional well-being is the foundation for cre-
ative, spiritual and personal growth. You are the
great communicator. Let your family, ,associates
and friends know what makes you happy. Reach

out and ask for help when needed. Now everyofie
reaps the harvest of your passion.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Life continues to go so well that occasional chal-
lenges are met with ease. Your wonderful heart
and proven track record is well established. Few if
any snags encountered on the road of life will
have much bearing on the final results of your life.
Why? Because you think and plan ahead. You cre-
ate new causes and have an inner sense of the
outcomes. You do this so naturally. Maybe all the
rest of us in your zodiac family need to take les-
sons.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Saturn is finally out of retrograde in Leo. This is like
a collar being lifted. Now you are free to run, be
happy and resume your creative life. Make new
plans. Write them down and affirm them out loud
every day, and you will feel a surge of new hope

Casa Roma they are back,

and they are delicious


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
STUART The famous
Conte family has historic
restaurant roots in Stu-
art, and those that
remember are excited
they are back in business.
Sal Conte, owner of the
original Casa Roma
restaurant, which was the
first Italian restaurant in
Stuart, serving its faithful
customers for 25 years, is
proud to see his son,
John Conte, following his
foot steps and opening
his own Casa Roma Ris-
torante.
Owners John Conte and
Francisco "Poncho"
Romo. opened two
months ago at 6075 S.E.
U.S. 1 in Stuart.
My husband Charles
and I visited the estab-
lishment and were warm-
ly welcomed at the door
by John, with a smile and
hello.
Our friendly host seated
us at our candle lit table
and delivered a basket of
warm garlic toast. He
also made wine sugges-
tions for the evening.
As we looked over our
menu, John also went
over the chef's specials.
A full and diverse range
of appetizers, soups, sal-
ads and chicken, veal,
pork, seafood and pasta
entrees covered the
menu.
To start our meal,
Charles and I went with
an appetizer sample-
platter at the suggestion
of John.
It was spectacular.
The platter included:
Bruschetta, which is
sliced Italian bread,
topped with onions, gar-
lic, tomatoes, herbs, oil
and vinegar and was very
refreshing; a lightly fried
crab cake made with
fresh lump crab and driz-
zled with honey-mustard
sauce that made the cake
pop with flavor; a bowl
full of steaming mussels
saut6ed in a fradiavlo
sauce, which is a deli-
cious blend of tomatoes
and garlic; and a broccoli
rabe and sausage dish
that was hot and perfect-
ly seasoned.

Owner John Conte serves it
Roma Ristorante in Stuart.
Each item on the plat-
ter was well prepared and
delicious.
Each entrde choice at
Casa Roma comes with a
salad, garlic bread, and a
side of pasta topped with
marinara sauce.
Our 'salad was served
family style in a large
glass bowl and tossed at
tableside. The cold,
crunchy salad was
topped' with the original
Conte family Italian
dressing recipe that John
mixes.
Charles ordered the
veal saltinboca for his
entree, which was one of
the chef's specials for the
evening.
The veal was sauteed in
a marsala sauce with
portabella mushrooms,
spinach and topped with
procuitto and mozzarella
cheeses.
This was an exquisite
entree. Every bite was
mouth watering deli-
cious, and Charles highly
recommends the dish.
I stole a bite and
thought the mushrooms
and sauce were spectacu-
lar.
I ordered the chicken
rollatini entree, which
John said is a favorite
among patrons.
I now see why.
My chicken dish came
out hot and could have
fed two of us.
The chicken breast was
stuffed with cheese,
roasted red peppers and

Prisoners' art on display at Mars


Gallery in Hobe Sound


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

"Art from the Inside Out,"
an art show for prisoners,
is on display at Mars
Gallery in Hobe Sound..
Curated by Carol Strick,
former jewelry designer
for the Metropolitan Muse-
um of Art in New York, she
has been organizing art
shows for prisoners the
past 15 years.
The purpose of the exhi-
bition is to change the
public's perception of pris-
oners. Artists have tradi-
tionally drawn their sur-
roundings. These artists
are no exception. Much of
the work abounds with
symbols; the dragon is the
prison system; prisoners
are "watched" from the
tower; locks, barbed wired,
weapons, handcuffs, mace,
hoses and clubs, keep
them inside; clocks and
calendars are reminders of
the slowly passing time;
and prisoners are trapped


in a web. They are lonely
without their family and
friends.
- Roger Pitt shows the
anguish and abuse he feels
he has experienced from
the Prison Industrial Com-
plex in his piece titled
"Caged."
"Life Without Parole," by
John Ekers, uses traditional
metaphors to explain his
suffering.
"Late Night Writer" by
Fabian Flores takes a con-
temporary turn. He has
developed insomnia, but
that allows him to write at
night when the prison is
quiet.
Also on display is the
work of many other prison-
ers across the country. The
materials range from pen
and pencil on paper,
acrylics on paper, canvas
or board, and pencil on
bed sheets. Sculptures
from toilet paper and glue,
toothpicks and soap are
also in the exhibit.

More than 60 percent of
these prisoners are inside
for drug and other non-
violent offenses.
"How is it possible to
make something beautiful
in an ugly, repressive envi-
ronment?" asks Nancy, a
female prisoner. "Art and
creating are very impor-
tant. There is so little that
we are able to control. Otr
time is not our own, and
,there are so many interfer-
ing demands. But art is the
escape. I can work through
problems and "end up with
something I am responsi-
ble for and while supplies
can be taken away, the cre-
ative force cannot."
The exhibit opened
April 5 and will continue
until April 30.
The exhibit will be open
for viewing on Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday
from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or
by appointment. Call
(561) 309-9621, and ask
for Dona.

HATS OFF TO TEA

Ladies who attended the American Red Cross Martin County Chapter's annual 'Afternoon Tea' came decked in pretty
hats. Pictured from left to right are Danice Juedes, winner of the prettiest hat, Linda Pellegrini, winner of the most styl-
ish hat, and Marion Norenberg, winner of the most creative hat. The Martin County Chapter hosted its Afternoon Tea
Thursday, March 29, at Miles Grant Country Club in Stuart. ;

Barn
From page B1


The two characters are
only on stage together
once, when they meet in
the middle for their wed-
ding ceremony.
"The community has
seen plenty of big-cast,
big-number teen shows
around town," said Martin
County High School stu-
dent director Ross Alagna,
,"But the board understood
that students can also han-
dle deeper, more compre-
hensive character develop-
ment and musical
challenges."
Another, positive factor
that helped sell the show to
Barn board members was
the vast experience of the
two young actors involved.
The female character
Cathy is played by Lincoln
Park Academy's Megan
Moran, who first appeared
on the Barn stage when
she was eight. She was
familiar to current board
members thanks to her
role in last year's hit Sum-
mer of '42. Moran recently
won the teen category of
The Maltz Theatre's Palm
Beach Idol contest and was
also a semi-finalist on The
Early Show's "Living Room
Live" series (CBS).
Port St. Lucie High
School's Robert Johnston,
who plays the male char-
acter Jamie, already has an
impressive list of leading
musical roles under his
belt. Among the many are


Tevye in "Fiddler On The
Roof," the Innkeeper in
"Les Miserables," Kenicky
in "Grease" (with Moran as
Rizzo) and Horton in
"Suessical The Musical."
Brown's strong writing
has found a solid following
among musical theater
fans. Variety magazine had
this to say about "The Last
Five Years:" "Short, bitter-


sweet and nearly perfect,
Brown has come up with a
winning .combination of
music and book."'
"The Last Five Years"
opens April 20 at the Barn
Theatre, 2400 S.E. Ocean
Blvd., in Stuart, and runs
through April22.
Showtimes are 2 and 8
p.m. Tickets are $10 for stu-'
dents and $15 for adults.


Call (772) 287-4884 for
more information.
The box office is open
Monday through Saturday
from noon to 4 p.m.

From page BI


and inspiration that has been
restricted since the holidays
of the past year. Your spirit is
free at last. What you do with
this creative freedom is up to
you. The universal power
wants you to honor it, family
and work in that order.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept 22
Do something nice for some-
one everyday. Do it first. This
sets the mood and tone for
everything else. When you
are psyched up and feeling
good, life flows easier. This is
do-able for you because of
your strong human values.
Sometimes others around
you may not show you the
respect you give them. These
divine human virtues are so
ingrained in you that it's a
challenge to try to under-
stand why others can't be the
same way. Forgiveness is
needed when this happens.
You have it in you.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You deserve the best in life
because you give the best.
Your good judgment is the
talk of the zodiac. If it isn't fair
for everyone you don't want
to be involved. This is your
greatest asset. The others are
love of family, loyalty and
compassion. Each sign has


it's own characteristics. You
are at the center, the scales of
balance and justice. Your
deep insights into truth con-
tinue to amaze even your
closest friends. You are such
a strong force to be reckoned
with.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Pay a lot of attention to'
details right now. It is better

developing them in advance.
When it comes time to act on
the plan, success is guaran-

details first. Now, let your
actions speak for you more
than your words when others
want to know how you make
all these exciting things hap-

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
The secrets and mysteries of
the universe continue to
unfold to you. Why? Because
you continue to make time to
go within and get in touch
with your truth. Keep it up.
Bring out your inspirations
and set them free. You have
the power within to over-

go Art Institute. He stud-

turing as well as bronze

One of the sure signs
of summer is the
sight of honeybees
fluttering from flower to
flower in search of sweet
nectar that is needed for
the bees to produce honey.
More often than not,
these small creatures
normally mind their own
business at hand.
This scenario is slowly
beginning to change.
With the introduction of
Africanized bees, you no
longer can assume that
the bee you see'is going to
leave you alone.
The problem is that only
a bee expert can tell the
difference between an
ordinary honeybee and
one that is Africanized.
Killer bees are slightly
smaller than their honey-
bee counterparts.
Similar to the imported
fire ant, Africanized
honeybees were brought
to our country by acci-
dent.
The bees are cousins of
bees that were imported
to South America in an
attempt to breed more
efficient honeybees that
are better adapted to a
tropical climate.
This was in 1957.
The problems began to
mount when the bees
began multiplying much
faster then expected.
Some of these bees
escaped from their
intended area and the
migration began.
Killer bees acquired
their name because they
tend to be more aggres-
sive than honeybees.
They will chase down


people or animals for
long distances, and in
much larger numbers,
than honeybees.
You can initiate an
attack by simply getting
into the bees' territory.
You do not have to
disturb the hive in order
to get attacked. This is
what makes them so
dangerous.
We now know that the
bees have arrived in our
area.
If you see a honeybee,
assume it might be a
killer bee and stay clear of
its path.
These bees can make
hives in almost any
structure, so be aware of
large numbers of bees
coming and going out of
trees, walls or virtually
any object that has a
hollow area.
Normally, a few bees
around your flowers
doing their normal
routine will generally not
be a problem. Remember
that bees are necessary to
pollinate flowers, fruits
and vegetables.
In the unlikely event you
are under attack from a
swarm of bees, run and
find shelter as soon as
possible.
When you are in a safe
area, away from the bees,
determine if you need
medical attention. If you
have been stung several
times, look for symptoms
such as breathing difficul-
ties and seek medical
attention immediately.
Local pain and some
swelling is a normal
occurrence and does not

with Joe Zelenak


always require medical
attention. If you have
known allergies to bee
stings, seek medical
attention no matter what.
Also, if you suspect you
have encountered killer
bee activity, notify author-
ities immediately.

Mexican heather
One of my favorite
plants to grow in the
summer months is the
Mexican heather.
These plants boast
colorful lavender, purple
or white flowers. They do
well in summer and
winter, and in full sun and
partial shade. They will
tolerate temperatures as
low as 28 degrees.
Even if they freeze to the
ground, there is a chance
they will grow back.
They have excellent heat


tolerance, but do best
with regular watering.
They can grow to be 3-
feet tall, but can be easily
trimmed to fit your needs.
They can be propagated
from plant cuttings in the
summer and also can be
grown from seed.
The most common
variety in retail stores is
the Allyson, which has
purple flowers.
I also use heather in my
bedding area. The combi-
nation of flowers makes a
great contrast of color in a
flowerbed and you have
the advantage of using
flowers that tolerate our
intense heat.
You can add some
Dusty Miller to the mix
for a real treat. The silver-
white colored leaves can
really add to the flower
mix for a picture perfect

yup IIpInrn Mr Cun C


Learn how to communicate


effectively with a car dealer


A s many of you know, I
1- communicate
. directly with my
customers, some would say
to a fault. I don't have a
secretary or administrative
assistant.
My dealership's telephone
receptionist never asks
"who's calling" or "may I ask
the nature of your call?" She
puts my calls (and the calls
to all my employees) right
through. If I am not:in my
office, she puts them
through automatically to
my cell phone, seven days a
week. I also have four red
phones in four locations of
my dealership: the show-
room floor by the recep-
tionist, the service cus-
tomer waiting lounge,
outdoors in the service
drive and in the body shop
waiting lounge.
Each phone has a picture
of me with the message,
"Customer hotline to Earl
Stewart. The buck stops
here. Have we not exceeded
your expectations? Please
let me know. Simply pick up
the receiver and wait for me
to answer."
As if all this isn't enough, I
put my home telephone
number and cell phone
number on my business
cards and pass them out to
my new customers at our
bi-monthly new owners
dinners.
I say all this, not to brag
(or maybe just a little). It
might surprise you that I
am not deluged with phone
calls. I get quite a few, but
considering I sell between
400 and500 cars a month
and service thousands each
month, I doubt if I average
more that 25 calls per day.

garden.
Water restrictions
As an added note, water
restrictions will soon be in
effect. Please follow the
schedule and plan your
watering accordingly.
Most plants will do well
on an every other day
watering schedule if they
are watered properly.
We all need to do our
part in conserving water
for our future, as well as
our children's, and grand-
children's futures.
Joe Zelenak has 26 years
experience in gardening
and landscape. Send e-
mails to
gardennook@bellsouth.ne
t or visit his Web site at
www.hbmetowngarden.co
m. He is also available to
answer plant questions at
Sears Essentials in Stuart.


Most of them are positive,
complimentary calls. I
believe one reason for this
is that my employees are
motivated to work harder
to satisfy my customers
because they know if they
don't I'm going to hear
about it very quickly.
Another reason is that my
customers are remarkably
respectful of the fact that
they can call me and do not
take advantage of it.
Frankly, my wife, Nancy,
was very nervous about this
when I first started passing
out my business card with
my home telephone
number. Would you believe
that I don't get more than
five or six home calls a
week? When you extend
your trust to people, they
almost always respect that
and do not take advantage.
Of course, you are not
going to find a lot of car
dealers who do what I do.
But here is how you can
improve your communica-
tions in other ways that will
allow you to get problems
solved and promises kept.
Always ask for the
business card of every
person you deal with. If
they don't have a card, be
sure to get their name. This
improves your service right
away, because the person is
no longer anonymous.
Ask the person for his cell
phone number. There was a
time when it was consid-
ered wrong to call someone
on a cell phone, but that
was before cell phone rates
became so cheap and cell '
phones became universal.
If this is a critical person
you are dealing with, ask for
his home telephone

person," collect e-mail
addresses from everybody
you deal with. E-mail is not
as timely as telephone, but
it has an advantage over the
telephone because it is "on
the record."
When you make a request
of a person by e-mail, he
can't deny it because you
have a copy of the message.
I know that with Microsoft
Outlook e-mail I get
acknowledgement every
time somebody opens an e-
mail that I sent them.
Furthermore, you can
copy as many people as you
like with an e-mail. You can
send copies the primary
recipient knows about, or
make blind copies that he
can't tell were sent.
Someone is a lot more
likely to act on your request
when he knows that it is a
matter of record and his
boss was copied with an e-
mail.
If you can force yourself
into the habit of getting
names, telephone numbers
and e-mail addresses from
everybody you deal with
and their managers,
conducting business with
your car dealer (or any
other business) will be
much more smooth and
trouble free.

number too. Here is a little
trick that I use when I do
this. I always start out by
giving them my cell phone
and my home phone
number. Then I say, "and
may I have yours?" I can't
remember ever having
been refused. If someone
you are doing business with
refuses to give you his cell
or home phone number,
maybe you should wonder
why.
Also, make it a point to be
introduced to this person's
manager. Get the manager's
business card and as many
contact numbers as he is
willing to share with you.
When you do this, you
have put the salesman or
service advisor on notice
that if he doesn't return
your phone calls, you will
be calling his boss.
If you really want to have
an edge, ask to meet the
general manager and/or
owner of the dealership.
Get his telephone numbers.
Now you will have every-
body's attention when you
come into the dealership to
transact business.

Great tips given for pork, Italian


Noodle Pie, 15 Bean Soup


Hello smart shoppers,
hope you had a good
week. Check out my
Mother's Day cookbook
special at the end of the
column.
Today's column will give
you my family's Easter
noodle pie and then it's all
about pork, "the other white
meat."
Pork is considered a low-
fat meat. Roast loin of pork,
boneless pork roast and
narrow boneless pork
tenderloin has no more fat
than a chicken thigh.
When I say pork, am I
talking about ribs or
sausage? Of course not. But
you already knew that.
Loin of pork is often on
sale. Did you ever notice
how much more expensive
pork chops are compared to
a loin of pork? I wonder
where those chops came
from?

IS IT MINE? ?
I buy lots of jewelry from
the public. To do so I must
fill out a police report when
purchasing jewelry from
the public. We must ask
whose ring (or whatever
they are selling) it is. We do
this to determine whether it
is their,property to sell or if
they have authorization to
sell it. And I frequently
hear something that dis-
turbs me. One of them is
from ladies that have been
engaged but have since
broken off the engage-
ment. They have given the
engagement ring back. The
second thing I hear is that
the man brings the ring in
to sell and he tells me he
tooko" it back.
Well here's the real deal.
If you receive an engage-
ment ring, it's yours. You
can wear it, sell it, or do
anything you want with it.
It's yours. If he "takes" it
back without your authori-
zation, it is still yours and
you can take whatever
legal means you like to get
it back. Therefore if he tries
to sell it to me or any other
jeweler it is not his to sell.
This is straight from the
detective that is our repre-
sentative from the sheriff's
office.

Aha, I know, from a pork
loin. If you want chops, buy
a loin of pork and ask the
butcher to cut it into chops.
The price doesn't change.
If you want double pork
chops to stuff, the price is
even higher, but if you ask
the butcher to cut double
chops from a loin, the price
stays the same.
A narrow, bonelesspork
tenderloin (long, slender
piece of meat usually in a
Cryovac package) is the
lowest-fat cut of pork
followed by a boneless pork
loin.
Buy a boneless pork loin
when it's on sale and ask the
butcher to cut it up into
roasts or chops. You can do
it yourself if you buy a
kitchen scale that goes up to
10 pounds. You can also
make pork cutlets.
The problem I have found
with a (bone in) pork loin is
the way they hack the bones
apart at the bottom of the
roast, supposedly to facili-
tate easy slicing when the
roast is done. It never works,
and you find yourself
ruining the roast.
Make your life easier; ask
the butcher to do three
things for you.
Trim most of the fat.
Cut the roast into chops.
Tie it back up so it looks
like the original.


a


Romancing the Stove

with Arlene Borg
the Grammy Guru


When the meat is done,
simply cut the strings and
your roast is already sliced.
If you've tried roasting a
pork tenderloin before, you
have found it cannot be
cooked by using conven-
,tional methods without
overcooking. And making
gravy is a near impossibility.
I've come up with a fool-
proof, fast method. Dinner
on the table in less than 30
minutes.
Also, there is nothing
better than 15- or 16-bean
soup, especially on a chilly
day. The beans come in a
plastic package, but one
brand has a wonderfully
different recipe that you
must have.
You can add a ham bone,
chunks of ham, a smoked
turkey leg or low-fat smoked
sausages, chopped. A ham
hock, although high fat can
also be used.
Vegetarian style is also
good, just don't use the
enclosed packet of ham
seasoning.
Enjoy, see you next week

15 BEAN SOUP

1 package 15-bean mix
2 quarts water
Your choice: Ham bone;
chunks of ham; smoked
turkey leg; low-fat
smoked sausages,
chopped; or ham hock
1 large onion, chopped
(1 cup)
1 (15-ounce) can
crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon chili powder
Juice of 1 lemon
1 dove garlic, minced
Salt and paper, to taste

Place beans in pan, cover
with water and soak
overnight. In the morning,
drain, add 2 quarts of water.
Add meat. Bring to a boil
and simmer uncovered 2-
1/2 to 3 hours, stirring
occasionally.
Add onion, tomatoes, chili
powder, juice and garlic.
Add salt and pepper to
taste. Simmer for 30 min-
utes or until all is tender.


PASTERIA
(ITALIAN NOODLE
PIE)

This recipe was a tradi-
tional Easter Saturday
addition when mom was
growing up.
My cousins have altered
some ingredients. The
recipe requires Crisco
shortening, which has been
around since 1911. Before
that time lard was used.

1 pound angel hair pasta
12 eggs
3/4 cup grated Pecorino
Romano cheese
Pepper to taste
Crisco shortening

Grease a 9- x 12-inch
baking pan. Boil noodles in
lightly salted water until al
dente. Drain and place in
pan.
Beat remaining ingredi-
ents together, and mix into
noodles. Dab with several
tablespoons Crisco. Bake at
350 degrees E for one hour
until set and top is a crusty
golden brown.
Cut in squares and serve
warm.

LOIN OF PORK
SERVES 4

2-1/2 to 3 pounds pork
loin roast, boneless or
bone-in
Garlic powder
Salt and pepper
Ground marjoram
(optional)

Rub meat all over with a
sprinkling of the spices.
Roast in a pan on a rack in
a 325-degree E oven,
allowing 35 minutes per
pound. If you prefer your
pork slightly pink, shorten
cooking time to 30 minutes
a pound.
When roast is done,
remove to a platter and
prepare the gravy.
Add about 1/2 cup water
to pan and heat, scraping up
all browned drippings. Pour
into saucepan, defatting
with ice cubes. When
chilled, remove remaining
cubes and fat with a slotted
spoon.
Thicken gravy with a little
flour and water shaken
together in ajar.
If necessary, season with
powdered bullion and add
more color with Gravy
Master.
For a boneless roast, slice
thin. Serve with applesauce.

WORSE FOR WEAR
A timing belt connects the crank-
shaft to the camshaft(s) to keep
the valves opening and closing in
phase with the movement of the
pistons. In the event that the timing
belt breaks, the camshaft(s) would
stop turning, leaving some of the
valves in the open position. The
heavier crankshaft would continue
to turn, however, due to inertia..In
an "interference engine," this
would lead the pistons to strike the
open valves, resulting in consider-
able damage to pistons, valves,
and even the cylinder heads. In
"non-interference engines," the
damage to the engine would be
much less but the engine would
stall. To avoid this damage and
inconvenience, manufacturers rec-
ommend replacing timing belts
about every 60,000-100,000 miles.
A malfunctioning timing belt can
lead to serious engine problems.
At ADVANTAGE FORD OF STUART,
we urge our clients to have preven-
tative maintenance performed on
their vehicles, which should
include an inspection of the timing
belt. By having this maintenance
performed now, you can save
yourself money in the long run.
Come to 4000 S.E. Federal
Highway, or call 772.781.6540
when you have automotive issues.
We're a "Blue Oval Certified" Ford
dealership. Genuine Motorcraft
parts mean that high quality is
guaranteed. We service most
major makes and models in addi-
tion to Ford and Lincoln/ Mercury
cars and, for your convenience,'we
have Saturday appointments from
7:30-3:30 as well as Monday to
Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
HINT: Some vehicles have timing
chains instead of timing belts,
which do not pose the same wear
and breakage dangers.

Learn some hard facts


about gallstones


A close friend of mine
i. recently had gall
ladder surgery.
The experience remind-
ed me of how complex the
body is and of how many
things can go wrong.
Fortunately for most of
us, they don't.
The gall bladder is a
small, pear-shaped organ
in the abdomen. It stores,
bile, a liquid produced in
the liver that helps break
down fats in he diet and aid
in digestion. When bile is
needed, the gall bladder
squeezes it out into the
intestinal tract, where it
mixes with food.
Sometimes, bile hardens
into pieces that resemble
stones, which is why they
are called gallstones.
Common gallstones are
made up of hardened cho-
lesterol.
They may be very small
or as large as a golf ball.
They can block the nor-
mal flow of bile and cause
inflammation and infec-
tion.
Also, they can be
extremely painful, as my
friend found out.
There are a number of
risk factors that contribute
to the creation of gall-
stones. Some we can con-
trol, and some we can't.
Obesity is a major risk
factor for gallstones, espe-
cially in women.
Estrogen: Whether
from pregnancy, hormone
replacement therapy or
birth control pills, excess
estrogen seems to increase
cholesterol levels in bile
and decrease gall bladder
movement, which may
lead to gallstones.
Ethnicity: Native
Americans have the


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


highest rate of gallstones
in the United States
because of a genetic
predisposition to secrete
high levels of cholesterol in
bile. Mexican-Americans
also have a high rate of
gallstones.
*Gender: Women, ages
20-60, are twice as likely to
develop gallstones than
men.
* Age: People older than
60 are more likely to
develop gallstones..
Cholesterol-lowering
drugs: These drugs lower
cholesterol levels in the
blood, but may increase
the amount of cholesterol
secreted in bile.
+ Diabetes: Diabetics
usually have high levels of
fatty acids called triglyc-
erides, which increase the
risk of gallstones.
+ Rapid weight loss and
yo-yo dieting: Losing
weight too quickly causes
the liver to secrete extra
cholesterol into bile.
Fasting: Fasting
decreases gall bladder
movement, causing bile to
become over-concentrat-
ed with cholesterol.
My friend's problem
began with pain in the
upper abdomen that, over


time, became sharper, last-
ed longer and radiated
under the shoulder and
through to her back.
The pain was severe
enough to keep her up at
night. It was frightening.
She often had attacks after
eating and was uncertain
what she could and could
not eat. She lived in fear of
a repetition of the pain.
The symptoms are simi-
lar to those for heart
attack, ulcer, hepatitis,
appendicitis and other ill-
nesses, so it's important to
seek treatment and get an
accurate diagnosis.
She went to see her fami-
ly doctor, who sent her for
an ultrasound, the most
sensitive and specific test
for gallstones.
When the test confirmed
that the problem was her
gall bladder, her physician
referred her to a surgeon.
In my friend's case, the
surgery was performed
laparascopically, through a
small incision.
Her gall bladder was
removed and she was able
to return to work about 10
days later. Most impor-
tantly, she doesn't suffer
from the kind of pain she
had and doesn't live with
the constant fear of recur-
rence and even complica-
tions.
If you're having any kind
of pain, talk to your doctor.
If it's abdominal or chest
pains, do it now.

Human spirit is key to


power, passion, potential


Inside everyone's heart
and soul at birth lives
the secrets to the
deeper mysteries of life.
It is like a vault of spiritu-.
al riches waiting for us to
discover it. Inside are all
the true values and riches
of life.
The key to opening the
vault is love.
Inside you'll find peace,
*health, abundance, faith,
joy, creativity, freedom and
mastery over life.
These things were not
deposited in a few select
souls. They are given to
everyone.
Discovering our true self
and destiny should be our
first priority in life. The
result is living a happy,
healthy, love filled abun-
dant life.
Some people are blocked
from discovering this
inner glory because anger,
fear, guilt, doubt, indeci-
sion and sadness take root
in their minds and they
use the spirit and life force
in wasteful ways.
Life in all its forms is
valuable.
We are not supposed to
waste it on negative
thinking or people who
live negative lives.
The human soul is like
the nucleus of an atom. It
is the hub of our wheel of
life. It is where power,
passion and potential live.
The journey toward it
comes when we have
exhausted our earthly
means and are driven to
find a better way of life.
The intellectual mind is
resistant to change. It
wants to keep everything
the same. It doesn't like to
give up control. Some-
times it would rather
suffer than change.
The starting point of
finding new mean i rig. f
life is to begin the process
of surrender and liser
and follow the hearMe.-t
the head.
Listen to your intuition.
It's there to help us when
we are open to hearing
and trusting it.
A happy heart is a


JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide

healthy heart. How happy
are you? Some people say
to me, "When I follow my
heart it gets me in trou-
ble."
My answer: "It's never
wrong to follow your
heart. When you are doing
things that make you
happy, you aren't as
accessible to others and
they sometimes scream at
you to get you back to
circling their orbit first."
You can tell when you
are beginning to open up
and grow by the reactions
you get from those around
you.
People who love you will
encourage you to find
yourself. Those using you
will try to squash it.
When roots begin to
grow in the heart, we
begin to find the priorities
and values that make us
happy. Then, as if by
magic, we begin to find
increased power, passion
and purpose.
You will begin to see the
old fear in the mind being
replaced by more loving
thoughts of yourself and
others.
When we get healthier
on the inside it begins to
show on the outside.
A healthy mind has
loving thoughts. A healthy
heart has desire for a
better life. A healthy soul is
where passion lives. It Is
our inner heat. Heat
creates expansion of the
power and purpose.
Now it's time to surren-
der to this universal spirit
living in us. Surrender


creates patience, trust and
faith in the higher power.
Now it's time to make wise
choices on what we
expand.
The priorities should be
to keep on sowing and
reaping positive causes
that fill us with love,
peace, health, abundance,
faith, happiness and
creativity.
Give back to the univer-
sal source as you know it.
Take care of family and
then go to the world. This
order of events insures the
continuation of life within
our universe.
The supreme law is what
we sow comes back to the
source multiplied.

Free family history help for busy


Treasure Coast residents


Genealogy is the
process of hunting
down your ances-
tors, a hobby that can
quickly turn in to a pas-
sion. The genealogy bug
bit me when my mother
began tracing her family
history soon after my
father died. My mother
and I took many genealogy
trips in the U.S. and
Canada together, and
eventually to Ireland. A
bookkeeper by training, my
mother entered every scrap
of information, with its
source, into family group
sheets. Today, with geneal-
ogy software and the
Internet, you don't have to
wait until you have the
time or the money to
travel.
If you think you're too
busy with life here and now
to research those ancestors
you've always longed to
know more about, think
again. Ancestor hunting has
never been easier or cheap-
er. With public library
access to Ancestrycom and
Heritage Quest, these web-
sites provide ancestor hunt-
ing through census and
other historical records.
Here is an easy- way to get
you started on your search,
without taking up enor-
mous amounts of time,
money or energy.
All you need is your mem-
ory, a willingness to think
about the past and a pedi-

gree chart. There are a num-
ber of Internet websites that
provide free forms you can
download. Ancestry.com
provides numerous forms to
download at
http://www.ancestry.com/t
rees/charts/ancchart.aspx.
The pedigree or ancestral
chart is a one-page chart
that begins on the left-
hand side with you. Mov-
ing to the right, there is a
place for your father and
mother; still moving right,
there are four places for
your father's parents and
mother's parents, and on
the far right, eight places
for your father's parents'
parents and mother's par-
ents' parents. Don't give up
if you can't coinplete the
chart. On the form enter as
much information as you
know, or think you know.
When you're not sure, place
a question mark after what


you think, but aren't sure
about. There are places for
name (enter the maiden or
birth name of the females),
place and date of birth,
place and date of marriage,
and place and date of death
for each individual.
Once you've completed
what you know or think, you
might want to call someone
in the family who's a genera-
tion or two older than you.
Their memories are longer
and perhaps some informa-
tion they remember may be
different from what you
remember. Record their
information when it differs
from yours. Don't worry
about making the chart neat
and pretty. That comes later
when you validate the infor-
mation, with birth, marriage
and death certificates and
census and other records.
Your next step is to get
some help from people who
are experienced in genealo-
gy researching and that help
is free, and easily available.
Treasure Coast Genealogical
Society (TCGS) members
provide free family history
research every Tuesday at
the St. Lucie County Public

announce that we have
raised $51,000 for the
American Red Cross Mar-


tin County Chapter," said
Ms. Davis. "We expect the
figure to go higher as addi-
tional pledges are met and
other donors contribute to
this very successful cam-
paign."
With hurricane season
fast approaching,, the
American Red Cross Mar-
tin County Chapter
launched this intense
three-week fundraising
campaign to replenish
local coffers in preparation
for any type of disaster that
may occur.
."Each of our 58 heroes,
our sponsors, media part-
ners, recruiters and cam-
paign workers deserve a
big pat on the back," said
L.C.Campbell. "All of the
funds raised in the cam-


paign will stay right here in
Martin County to help vic-
tims of disasters in Martin
County."

Bulldog pitcher is ace on the


mound and in the classroom


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
When South Fork
pitcher Charlie Robbins
stepped off the mound
for the last time March
27, a feeling of accom-
plishment and joy rushed
through his body.
The senior pitcher had
just tossed a no-hitter,
giving up just one walk
against W.T. Dwyer. But
as teammates came over
to congratulate him, the
senior was already ana-

lyzing what few mistakes
he had made in his com-
plete-game performance.
Happy his team won,
Robbins knew he could
have been better.
Anything better would
have been a perfect
game.
"It was a big deal but
I'm more worried with
the team right now. I'd
rather have the team
winning," said Robbins.
"We won that game by a
decent margin (5-0) but
we haven't been playing
up to our potential. If we
had been playing well
this whole season I would
have been happier about
it, but it's just like anoth-
er win."
Robbins has been near-
ly perfect this season for
the Bulldogs with a 4-1
record on the mound,
including a 10 strikeout
performance against Vero
Beach April 13 that put
his team in the Treasure
Lakes Championship
game against John Car-
roll on April 17.
That game was held to
late to report the out-
come for this edition.
Trying to fix the mis-
takes in one's game
rather than boasting to
others about one's
accomplishments is


something of a rarity in
today's sports world, but
it's what Robbins has
always done. South Fork
head coach Mike Harper
has coached Robbins
since he was 9-years-old
and has watch him
mature into the player he
is today.
He has matured a great
deal over the last nine
years, says Harper, going
from a nervous kid who
worried more about his
defense behind him, than
on the batter in front of
him. He has he learned to
focus on his job on the
mound first, and to let
the rest work itself out.
Harper expects the senior
to mature even more in
his college years, which is
only a positive in his
eyes.
"He's come a long ways.
He's almost like one of
my kids. He's grown up in
front of my eyes, and he's
an asset to us," said
Harper. "I can't say
enough about him. I feel
in my heart that he's one
of the three best in the
area on the hill."
Having your ace pitch-
er over-analyze his first
career no-hitter might
drive some coaches up a
wall, but not Harper. The
South Fork head coach


likes the fact that his No.
1 guy isn't satisfied with
being good. He wants to
be great.
"You want to strive to
be perfect and he proba-
bly didn't think he was,
but I like that in a kid,"
said Harper. "I like a kid
who goes 2-for-3 and
says dangg it, I should
have been 3-for-3.' He
,gave up one walk in that
game and probably
thinks 'hey, I just pitch
this pitch and I would
have had a perfect
game.'"
It is that kind of atten-
tion to detail that has put
Robbins ahead of the
pack this season. On the
field he is constantly try-
ing to perfect his curve-
ball and gaining better
control of his changeup.
Off the field he is a model
student that maintains a
3.8 grade point average
while taking six different
classes that will give him
college credit.
"He's so smart he's
dumb sometimes," jokes
Harper.
If baseball and school
weren't hard enough, he
somehow manages to
work once a week at
Shrimpers in Stuart too.
"It's a lot of work. I'm
kind of upset that I did
that. It's my senior year.
I'm supposed to have
fun," laughs Robbins.
"I'm looking forward to
the summer."
With a workload that
mirrors most college
kids, Robbins should fit
in just fine next year at
Emory University in
Atlanta, where he will
pitch for the Eagles.
"I'm really excited.
They're only a division
three school but they're
still really good," said
Robbins, who has
thought about majoring
in pre-med. "They're
third in the nation right
now and go to the cham-
pionship a lot. So you
have a chance to be
seen."
But before he heads off
to Emory, he has plans on
leading the Bulldogs to a
District 5A-13 title.
South Fork will travel to
Sebastian River High
School the week of April
26 for the district tourna-
ment.

Martin County D5


Friday, April 20, 2007 www.nu..>.>"".........."-


Time creeps up on all golfers eventually


Time has a way of
speeding past
without us even
taking notice.
Every once in a while,
Father Time jumps iri and
shows us just how quick-
ly it passes. Never in my
life has he shown me this
quite as well as during
the past month.
It started a few weeks
back when I attended the
ceremony to open Santa
Lucia River Club at
Ballantrae in Port St.
Lucie.
Golf's greatest player,
Jack Nicklaus, was on-'
hand to cut the ribbon,
hit a ceremonial tee shot,
and schmooze with the
club's members and us
media folk.
The Golden Bear no
longer plays competitive-
ly. By his own admission,
he tees it up only once or
twice a month at the
most.
"All these years that
people have wanted to
play like me. Now they
do," he said. "I can't hit
the ball hard enough to
keep it in 'the air any-
more."
The sparkle we used to
see in his eye when an
eagle or birdie putt
would fall gracefully into
the cup is still present. It
shows up the very
moment you ask him
about his latest course
designs. He lights up just
like that Sunday in 1986
at Augusta National
when he made every
possible shot on the back
nine to win his sixth, and


JAMES STAMMER'
Golf columnist

final, green jacket.
With the rise in capital-
ism in Eastern Europe, a
bevy of fantastic sights
on which to build a golf
course have opened up.
He spoke of a sight where
the course will run along
a cliff that drops off into
the sea.
As We spoke I could feel
Father Time breathing
over my shoulder.
Here I was talking with
the greatest golfer ever, a
man I watched win many
majors and change the
game in my lifetime, and
he was speaking of
fishing, and course
design, not of hitting a
golf ball.
Before Nicklaus, there
was Arnold Palmer.
No matter how much
time passes, Arnie will
always be in our hearts
and will always be "The
King."
I can remember as a
young child roaming the
grounds at The Masters
collecting autographs on
practice round Tuesdays.
Back then Palmer was


TELL 'EM You t
READ IT IN THE NonowmloNe


one of the favorites to
win the tournament and
Nicklaus was just begin.-
ning his rampage on the
record book.
A couple years ago,
Arnie hung up his clubs
with regard to playing as
a past champion every
year at Augusta. This
year, he took up the
club's offer to become the
sixth ceremonial starter,
in Masters' history.
This past Sunday, my
father and I watched the
replay of Arnie hitting
that ceremonial tee shot.
They played it just before
beginning the final'
round's coverage.
Once again I felt Father
Time in the room.
It was a truly bitter-
sweet moment watching
Arnie kick off the 2007
Masters.
While it was nice to see
such an honor bestowed
upon our sport's most
beloved figure, it was sad


to know that his game's
ability to thrill crowds
with fantastic shots and
bravado is no longer
there.
Arnie is the reason my
father took up golf and
then passed the game,
along with all of its
virtues, to me.
The game that allows us
to, quite literally, play
until the day we die, has
passed my heroes by.
Jack is designing more
and more, Arnold has
become a ceremonial
starter and my true hero
no longer plays.
Although he was never
a great player, my father
loves this game. Now at
84, his body no longer
allows him to enjoy
playing the game.
Instead, he watches a
few rounds on television
and enjoys hearing about
my rounds on the links.
My 13-year-old son,
Paul, has a genuine


affection for the game. I
look forward to us
playing together for
many years to come. His
maternal grandfather can
even join us. It's the
greatest trait of our
game.
These past few weeks
have been difficult for
me. I've realized just how
quickly time does go by
and I know that I should
have enjoyed the journey
more than I have.
I just hope and pray
that Father Time doesn't
breathe over my son's
shoulder anytime soon
and leave him with only
the memories of our
playing days gone by.
