Staff writer

With the help of a
NASCAR driver, a new inter-
change for Florida's Turn-
pike opened last week that
should ease Martin County
drivers' access to the north-
south toll road.
The interchange at Becker
Road and the Turnpike in
southern St. Lucie County
was opened, to Sunpass-
only traffic on May 11. Ricky
Carmichael, who recently
began driving for the Ginn
Racing NASCAR team, drove
the first car through the
interchange.
Residents in northern
Martin County will benefit
from the opening. The inter-
change is only one mile
from the county line. Becker
Road, which turns into Mur-
phy Road in Martin County,
connects to Palm City.
Michael DiTerlizzi, chair-
man of the Martin County
Commission whose district
includes Palm City, expects
the interchange to benefit
Martin County residents.
"I think for the people
along Murphy Road, the*
northern Palm City resi-
dents, they should see a
change in the traffic pat-
terns," said Mr. DiTerlizzi.
"It means some conges-
tion relief. It also may mean
change in traffic patterns, as
people in northern Palm
City may use the inter-
change to travel north-
bound on the Turnpike," he
said.
It should also spell relief
for Port St. Lucie residents as
well.
"We're very excited to

cially, with an executive
board that was falling apart.
But in 2007, with a new
president and chief execu-
tive officer, William Bee, at
the helm and a new execu-
tive board comprised of area
business, legal and govern-
ment leaders, Big Brothers
Big Sisters of Martin County
has been nominated for
'"Agency of the Year," by Big
Brothers Big Sisters of Amer-
ica. The honor comes on the
heels of being named by the


same organization as one of
the 35 best performing
agencies in the country.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of
Martin County was in the
red at the start of 2004,
despite having received
some grant funding.
"They had a massive exo-
dus by staff, a board that was
falling apart, and I don't
know what caused it," said
Mr. Bee, who was asked to sit
as interim director while the
agency searched for a new


head.
After just one month, they
asked Mr. Bee, a former Wall
Street executive, to stay on
permanently.
Mr. Bee is quick to point
out that he should receive
no credit for the agency's
turnaround.
"I think nonprofit agen-
cies are spectacular, but you
have to make sure you have
the financial basis to
account for it," said Mr. Bee.
"You have to have one set


of skills to keep the opera-
tion afloat and another to
keep the programs going.
The latter is not my area of
expertise. I developed a staff
involved in building the
funding, and I leave the pro-
gram side to people who are
experts in that," he said.

Galleons ready to get soccer

started on the Treasure Coast


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Two years ago, the Trea-
sure Coast Galleons were a
dream. In less than two
days, they will be a reality.
On May 19, the Treasure
Coast Galleons soccer
team will kick off its inau-
gural season at Lawnwood
Stadium in Fort Pierce,
against Orlando City EC.
"It's very exciting," said
Pete Marino, co-founder
and Galleons team captain.
Marino, a former Major
League Soccer star and
current Port St. Lucie resi-
dent, toyed with the idea of
bringing a professional
soccer team to the Treasure
Coast, but it wasn't until a


random conversation with
fellow founder Andre
Ruette at the Jensen Beach
Ale House that the idea
took off.
A number of issues kept
the Galleons off the field
the last two years, but,
finally, the team is here and
looking to stay.
"There was nothing
above youth soccer here.
Certainty there is high
school, but there's not
much college so there was
this huge void," Ruette said
this winter. "I wanted to
bring these kids a team to
help elevate the game of
soccer and the awareness
in the area."
The team will consist of a
number of former profes-


sional players as well as ris-
ing stars from the sur-
rounding area. Ruette and
Marino have been working
hard in the last few months
to make sure the quality of
play on the field wont dis-
appoint either. They hired
Gerry Schiavo, one of the
most respected club
coaches in the country, to
lead the team. And Marino
will serve as an on-field
coach for some of the
younger players. He is just
one of four or five former
MLS players living in south
Florida that will make up
the core of the team.
"I'm still able to play a lit-
tle bit so hopefully they can

Unique family among

those earning degrees


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
A mother-father-daugh-
ter combo, a woman who
barely spoke any English
just a few years ago, and a
high school student were
among the, 1,396 Indian
River Community College
students who earned asso-
ciate's degrees earlier this
month.
Martin County residents
Iris and Carlo Sciandra and
their daughter, Candice
Costa, all earned their first
college degrees this year.
Mrs. Sciandra a dispatch-
trainer at the Martin County
Sheriff's Office, started tak-
ing online classes while
Candice was still in high
school.


"It's something I wanted
to accomplish," she said of
earning a college degree. 4
Her husband, a Martin
County Sheriff's Office
detective, had taken several
law enforcement-related
classes over the years
through his job. It wasn't
until he had an audit done
at the college that he found
out he was only a few class-
es shy of an associate's
degree in criminal justice.
Coincidentally, all three
family members ended up
finishing at the same time.
In their caps and gowns,
Mrs. Sciandra said she was
thrilled watching Candice,
20, be awarded her general
associate's degree. She said

learn from me on the field

no. "It will be easier when I
can tell them and show
them. By showing them,
hopefully, I can score some
goals and lead this team to
some victories. If I can do
that, then they'll really lis-
ten to me."
The team will play its first
two years in the Florida
Elite Soccer League before

making the jump to the
United Soccer League, the
country's premier minor
league.
Until then the goal will be
to build a local fan base,
hopefully cheering on more
and more local players.
Open tryouts have been
better than expected, and
the team started to take
shape May 5 when Treasure
Coast hosted split-squad
scrimmage's against a club
team from West Palm and a
South American all-star
team from Miami.
And even with the great
turnout so far, the Galleons
will get another boost mid
season when some players
finish commitments with
other teams, and can offi-
cially join Treasure Coast.
Schiavo says that the
team will be about 80 per-
cent complete to start.
Despite a few bumps along
the road, he is certain that
the hard work will pay off in
the end for the new club.


"It's something new.
When you have everything
set up it's easier right? But
now you really have to work
when you have nothing,"
said Schiavo. "I just tell (the
players) that this is a,game
that you play with your
heart. If everybody puts
their heart in, you can have
success." k,
One player that is ready to
become a part of that suc-
cess is Diderot Garcia Jr.,
The 2006 St. Lucie West
Centennial graduate will
play stopper for the
Galleons in 2007, and he
couldn't be happier about
helping soccer take the next
step on the Treasure Coast.
"It's definitely a great
thing for me to be able to
play at this level and to rep-
resent the area' I grew up
in," said Gracia Jr. "I told
everyone I knew about it.
We got something else in
Port St Lucie to keep the
kids off the street, why don't

open the Turnpike extension
at Becker Road because it
gives residents in the area
faster access to the Turn-
pike," Port St. Lucie Mayor
Patricia Christensen said. "It
will also ease traffic on Port
St. Lucie Boulevard, as well
as open the southwest area
of the city to all the future
retail and commercial
development in that area."
Port St. Lucie's only other
interchange from the Turn-
pike is at Port St. Lucie and
Bayshore boulevards. What
is different at the Becker
Road interchange is that
drivers must have a Sunpass
to use it.
Sunpass is a prepaid pro-
gram that allows drivers to
use the Turnpike without
stopping at tollbooths. A
transponder is read when a
vehicle passes through an
interchange and the toll
amount is deducted from

your needs and sound environment to help you hear
a rich arid dynamic range of sounds.


EDGE Action has a unique wind noise reduction
for improved sound performance outdoors. It features a convenient new battery charger system,
eliminating frequent battery replacements.









rvey to provide feedback on these Open Technology


Plans for the Becker Road
interchange began in 2001,
when Ginn Resorts began
developing its Tesoro com-
munity. The company want-
ed residents of the upscale
housing development direct
access to the Florida's Turn-
pike.
"We are happy for the resi-
dents of Tesoro and that
area of Port St. Lucie, as this
interchange will reduce
travel time and add a level of
convenience to their lives,"
said Bobby Ginn, president
and chief executive officer
for Ginn Resorts.
Since neither the city of
Port St. Lucie nor the Florida
Turnpike Authority 'could
afford to construct an inter-
change at Becker Road for
another 20 years, Ginn
Resorts, along with Huizen-
ga Holdings and the Tesoro
Special Assessment District
funded the project.
"By Ginn and Huizenga
contributing, it definitely
moved the project up,"


Mayor Christensen said.
Turnpike officials said the
interchange is a good exam-
ple of what can happen with
future projects.
"The Becker Road inter-
change demonstrates how
the public and private sector
can form a partnership to
provide a needed trans-
portation benefit for the
motorists of the Treasure
Coast," said Jim Ely, execu-
tive director of Florida's
Turnpike Enterprise. "Flori-
da's Turnpike is excited to be
a part of it because it sets the
standard for future relation-
ships with other local gov-
ernments and private com-
panies."
Port St. Lucie oversaw the
construction of the $19 mil-
lion interchange. Construc-
tion began in June 2005 and
was completed late last
month.

If the Galleons do
become a Treasure Coast
staple, it will be local play-
ers like Gracia Jr., who will
have to lead them. As
much as the former pro

crowd on a weekly basis,
what they are able to

Treasure Coast gears up for Hurricane Fair


BY MICHELLE GENTILE
Staff writer
Hurricane season offi-
cially starts June 1 and
organizations such as The
American Red Cross are
gearing up with hurricane
fairs, expos and other
events aimed at educat-
ing the public on the
newest technologies and
preparation tools.
The American Red
Cross will be hosting its
13th Annual American
Red Cross/Expert Shutter
Hurricane Fair on June 2
and 3 at the Treasure
Coast. Square Mall in
Jensen Beach.
The fair is designed to
highlight new technolo-


gies, provide information
on this year's hurricane
season and offer pre-
paredness information on
everything from shelters
to shutters.
"These types of events
offer a great opportunity
for people to get impor-
tant safety information for
the upcoming hurricane
season," said Mike Lyons,
meteorologist, for televi-
sion station WPBF 25 in
Palm Beach. "People walk
away with the knowledge
of what to do before, dur-
ing and after a hurricane
and how to best prepare."
The Hurricane Fair is
specifically designed to
get as much information
to as many people at one


time in one place and,
according to Red Cross
officials, they are expect-
ing more than 60,000 peo-
ple this year.
"Because of the hurri-
cane activity in 2004 and
2005 we've had a huge
response," said Mary
Sawyer, Executive Direc-
tor of the Martin County
Chapter of the American
Red Cross. "It was devel-
oped 13 years ago and is a
place vendors can come
with new products. Its
also a great opportunity
for people to look into
products for their
homes."
Other highlights will be
children's activities, free
blood pressure readings,


how to set up hurricane
kits, tips on boarding up
homes and even sugges-
tions on various govern-
ment grants that can give
assistance for hurricane
shutters.
According to the Martin
County Chapter of the
American Red Cross, one
initiative they are trying
to put forth is for families
to prepare an Emergency
Plan.
"Information such as
evacuation routes, how to
prepare an emergency kit,
and how to board and
prepare a place for your
pets," said Ms. Sawyer.
"This should all be a part

Severe water shortage expanded to
Martin, St. Lucie counties

The South Florida Water Management District's govern-
ing board last week declared a severe water shortage in
Martin and St. Lucie counties, ordering residents to follow
new water restrictions.
The Phase II water restrictions target outdoor water use,
limiting lawn watering and car washing to two days a week.
Those with odd numbered street addresses may water
from 4 to 8 a.m. Wednesday and Saturdays. Residents of
even numbered addresses may water from 4 to 8 a.m.
Thursday and Sundays. Those in violation of the water
restrictions face civil fines.
These limitations and other actions are intended to pro-
duce a 30 percent water use reduction by the combined
conservation efforts of all users, including agricultural,
industrial, commercial, golf course, landscaping and resi-
dential water users.
The Phase II restrictions in this region apply to users who
draw their water from public utilities, private wells, canals,
ponds and lakes.
The severity of the drought can be seen in Lake Okee-
chobee water levels.
At 9.37 feet above sea level as of May 10, the water level in
the lake is within five inches of its-record low 'of 8.97 feet,
recorded in 2001. The primary back-up water supply for
most South Florida residents, the lake is so low this year that
its waters cannot be used to replenish the regional supply.
If drought conditions persist, water managers expect the
lake level to reach a new record low elevation within weeks.
For additional information, residents can call the
SFWMD's toll-free Water Shortage Hotline at 1-800-662-
8876. Helpful water conservation tips, TV and radio public
service announcements, and specific information on cur-
rent water use restrictions are available at

Martin County's growth rate
on a downward trend

Thus far in 2007, building permit applications in Martin
County are lower than in previous years, and county com-
missioners expect the trend to continue.
As a result of both the local and national economic out-
look, the history of hurricanes over the past several years
and the public's concerns over the rising cost of property
insurance and taxes, a downward trend is expected.

walk, earning her business

Sciandra decided to cheer


them on from the crowd
with the rest of the family,
which includes 11- and 12-
year-old daughters.
"I stress to our younger
girls how important it is to
pursue college right after
high school," Mrs. Sciandra
said. "It's very difficult pnce


you're a grownup and have a
family and a job. All three
girls realized how hard it
was to do this."
Even before her high
school diploma is in her

already finished her first two
years of college.

As a dual enrollment stu-
dent from Lincoln Park
Academy, where she's set to
graduate on Saturday, May
19, Ms. Woertz didn't take
any high school classes this
year, and was only required
to take two during her jun-
ior year. Instead, she
excelled at IRCC during the
day, earning the Academic
Excellence Award for her
perfect 4.0 grade point aver-
age.
Still, Ms. Woertz said she
gets more satisfaction from
graduating high school than
she does from getting her
first college degree out of
the way.
"Graduating high school
is a milestone," she said.
A member of the Phi


Theta Kappa National
Honor Society and an officer
in the IRCC Campus Coali-
tion Government, Ms.
Woertz also works in the
vice president of finance
office as an institutional
aide.
The Fort Pierce resident is
now taking two summer
courses at IRCC and will
major in occupational ther-
apy at the University of
Florida later this year. She
hopes to earn a master's
degree.
Meanwhile, Malgorzata
"Meg" Bujoczek will stay at
IRCC full-time in the
school's new bachelor's
degree in education pro-
gram.
When Ms. Bujoczek came
to the United States from
Poland in 2001 at age 22, she
spoke very little English. But
as an au pair staying with an
American family in
exchange for helping with
child care, she said it was
"sink or swim" when it came
to learning the language.
For more than a year under
the family's roof, she could-
n't communicate in her
native language.
"I always love to talk," she
said. "I had to learn to speak
English quickly."

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
"took" 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.

Back then, she was nanny
to a 1-, 3- and 8-year-old.
"With the 1-year-old, we
kind of learned together,"
Ms. Bujoczek said. "That-
was fun."
After her time in the coun-
try, she decided she would
stay here and go to college.
But back in Poland, she
said her parents always
wanted a job for their
daughter that was math-
centered. Instead, she opted
to study literature. However,
she said it's difficult to study
literature that's not written
in your native language. So
Ms. Bujoczek said she start-
ed taking math courses and
"fell in love."
She said instructors,
friends and people she has
tutored have encouraged
her to pursue her long
desire of becoming a
teacher. With her associate's
degree completed, she's
halfway there.
In addition to being a stu-
dent, Ms. Bujoczek, a mem-
ber of the IRCC Honors Pro-
gram and president of the
Future Teachers Club, vol-
unteers her summers at the
Vero Beach Museum of Art,
and works in the IRCC Eng-
lish as a second language
department. There, shie has
also learned Spanish and
now considers herself trilin-
gual.

In addition, the Taste of

In addition to the "'Agency

tion, Patricia Kinahan, pro-

ers Big Sisters, has been
nominated for the Margaret
Slack Award, given to an
individual who exhibits an
outstanding level of profes-
sionalism and quality of
service. Winners of the
awards will be announced
at a national conference in
Scottsdale, Arizona in June.
Mrs. Kinahan has been
.with Big Brothers Big Sisters
for six years, first as a volun-
teer big sister, then as a site-
based case manager, pro-
gram director, office
manager and now director
offinance.
"It's a great honor to be
nominated, but I truly don't
expect to win," said Mrs.
Kinahan.
"There are so many won-
derful, dedicated people
that work for Big Brothers
Big Sisters in our and other

working people, and they
just love the children. I do it
because I love it, and not for
any kind of award. It's all
about the kids," she said.
Mr. Bee is not surprised by
Mrs. Kinahan's modesty or
of the dedication of his
entire staff.
"I'm fortunate to be the
leader of the band," said Mr.
Bee. "But I've got a great
band."

Alzheimer's care agency


helps sufferers and families


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Larry Butcher keeps six
large, unopened bottles of
Karo syrup in his pantry as
a reminder of the disease
that has changed his fami-
ly forever. Sometimes the
bottles of sticky sweet
syrup make him laugh, he
says. Other times, they
make him cry.
Mr. Butcher,' a retired
real estate professional
who admits he doesn't
think he's ever had a rea-
son to use Karo syrup and
he's not even sure what it's
for, says they are purchas-
es his v.ife Jeannette made
during her descent into
Alzheimer's, the merciless
disease that robbed her of
her mind.
Mr. Butcher, who now
advocates on behalf of
those with Alzheimer's,
their caregivers and fami-
lies, calls the traumatic
journey "a long goodbye,"
a reference to a Linda
Combs book about her
own family's experience
with Alzheimer's disease
called, "A Long Goodbye
and Beyond"
For Butcher and for the
479,000 patients in Florida
currently dealing with
Alzheimer's disease and
their families, the battle is
personal. Jeannette
Butcher was diagnosed
with Alzheimer,s disease
in 1995, after a few years
of disturbing incidents
and strange situations
that led to the diagnosis.
A vibrant and extremely
organized individual, Mrs.
Butcher had been
involved in non-profit and
community boards and
was an avid bridge player
prior to her diagnosis.


Larry Butcher


Today, she lives in a long-
term care facility and does
not remember her family
at all.
Mr. Butcher said people
regularly ask him why he
still goes to visit his wife
daily, and why he limits
his out-of-town travel
when his wife doesn't even
remember who he is. His
answer is simple and
heartbreaking; "Because I
remember who she is."
It is that memory that
drives him to tirelessly
advocate on behalf of
Alzheimer's and related
disorders .patients as a
volunteer of Alzheimer"s
Community Care (ACC), a
not-for-profit organiza-
tion that has been provid-
ing support for patients
and caregivers in the Trea-
sure Coast and Palm
Beach County for 11 years.
Mr. Butcher, who calls
himself a widower with a
living spouse, also heads a
weekly caregiver support
group in Stuart, and
makes it his mission to
create and implement the
highest level of care for


lc~i~";


those suffering from the
disease and their families.
Since its inception, Mr.
Butcher says the ACC pro-
gram, which is funded by
groups like the United
Way, Community Founda-
tion, Area Agency on
Aging, Quantum Founda-
tion, the Department of
Elder Affairs and the
Gertrude E. Skelly Chari-
table Foundation has
grown and expanded, and
now provides ten adult
day care facilities
throughout Palm Beach,
Martin and St. Lucie
counties, a 24 hours-a-day
Alzheimer's Crisis Line,
dementia-specific train-
ing for law enforcement
.officials, and dementia-
specific shelters during
hurricanes and other nat-
ural disasters.
Mr. Butcher, who
chairs the state-appointed
Alzheimer's Disease Ini-
tiative committee, says he
would like to see the ACC
model utilized throughout
the state.
He works with the
Department of Elder
Affairs, speaks with law-
makers, caregivers and, he
says, "anyone who will lis-.
ten," about developing
standards for dementia-
specific care.
ACC President and CEO
Mary Barnes agrees:
"Three years ago, ACC
convened a group of pro-
fessionals from various
health agencies and legal
entities to serve on one of
our most active volunteer
committees, our Demen-
tia-Specific Standards
Committee. Our commit-

Thank you Martin Memorial

I would like to express my deep gratitude to the fourth
and fifth floor staff of Martin Memorial Hospital North.
I have recently had two lengthy and extended stays.
One in February for 13 days, and one in April for 20 days.
In between these, there were 4 or 5 other times I had to go
to the emergency room.
The quality of care, and professionalism shown by the
nursing staff, the personal care technicians, and the
housekeeping staff should receive a five-star rating.
I was treated with courtesy, kindness, and dignity.
There was always a smile, or an encouraging word.
The question I heard asked most often was, "How can I
help you ?" from each staff member.
The staff on the fourth- and fifth-floors of Martin
Memorial North certainly know the meaning of compas-
sion and empathy.
Again, please know how grateful I am to everyone
involved in my care.

Bicyclists should use their own lane

I am so glad that I have a place to go to get this off my
chest!
Although I love to bicycle, and agree that it is good exer-
cise, I would like to remind all those bicycle clubs that
decide to go for their ride on Sunday morning on A1A that
there is a bicycle lane for them.
When a group of 50 bicycles, or more, decide to ride
two-by-two, and- three-by-three across the road, and
expect the cars to pass them by going into the oncoming
traffic lane, they are disobeying the law, and causing driv-
ers to possibly be in an accident.
I would like to know, where the police are on Sunday
mornings on AIA in Stuart and Hobe Sound?
This is a very dangerous situation, even for the bicy-
clists, who sometimes because of their helmets, cannot
hear the cars coming up behind them.
Last Sunday, one of the bikers swung out in front of us,
causing us to hit our brakes and then, frightened, he
moved over to the lane he was supposed to be in.
This act of direct disobedience of the laws of the.road is
going to cause someone to get hurt someday, I'm sorry to
say.

Knobby blocks needed

This is to the Martin County Parks and Recreation
Department..
My husband and I put our boat in at a local park.
We went to pull the boat out at low tide, and the blocks
were so slippery that our truck spun the tires, causing
smoke.
I know we lost a lot of mileage on our tires.
I looked down at the blocks that were put in. I thought,
you know, this had to be a man to think of this set-up,
because a woman would have had enough knowledge to
put in the knobby blocks, so that the tires could grab.
Please, don't tell me they power wash it. A lot of times
you can hardly stand up on it.

Boys & Girls Clubs
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County has become a
"rich-kids" only club this summer.
The club has increased its summer tuition by 500 per-
cent!
I have been a single mother of two, and have paid sum-
mer tuition for the last two years of $75 (for two kids).
Now, they want $400. This community has suffered the
huge increases of homeowner's insurance, property
taxes, and rising gas prices. Now the Boys & Girls Clubs
have added to our burden unfairly.
Just how do single moms, widows, and low-income
families suddenly come up with this amount, or any-
where near this amount of money?
According to the newspaper on April 15, the annual
report of Children's Services Council of Martin County
has given a total of $407,591 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of
Martin County. -
This is one source of funding. I was told by one member
of the board that CSCMC was aware of, and approved of,


this 500 percent increase in summer tuition.
I e-mailed the executive director of CSCMC, and the
headquarters of the Boys & Girls Clubs nationally.
I did not receive a response.
On May 4, I read that CSCMC renewed funding for
Planned Parenthood, with our tax dollars.
Planned Parenthood made a net profit of $63 million in
its last fiscal year, and a net profit of $405,000 in this local
district.
CSCMC's higher priority is funding women's issues, and
killing babies, with my tax dollars!
CSCMC needs to put their priorities in correct order,
and put higher funding for the needs of living children.
Well, I can't afford to have my two kids attend the Boys
& Girls Club this summer, and certainly cannot be bur-
dened with a payment plan, as suggested by that board
member, or the possible scholarship, which a staff mem-
ber said would not be anywhere near the $75 for two kids
that I could afford last year.
Sigh, I am really frustrated! It just keeps getting hard-
er, and harder to live in Florida.
My house is up for sale; I hope it sells before I go into
foreclosure.
My children's father is a deadbeat whom I've taken to
court three times. The judge is so lenient on the jerk,
without considering the huge hardship the jerk has creat-
ed for us, on purpose.
I have tried very hard as an American single morn to
make ends meet in my home state of Florida. Yes, I'm one
of the last natives, but now I can't wait to get out of here.
And by the way, I'm fed up with Medicaid, food stamps,
and public assistance (or, lack of), even though I'm only
making minimum wage.
That's another pathetic story for another day.

Response from the Boys & Girls Clubs

This summer, like every summer since we opened 15
years ago, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County will be
filled with children who would consider themselves any-
thing but "rich kids."
In fact, we serve all children, regardless of socio-eco-
nomic status. We strive to keep our programs by far one
of the least expensive summer camps in the county,
despite the rising costs we are suffering as well.
Consider:
We never turn a child away for a parent's inability to
pay. As the ranter mentions, we work with parents to
offer scholarships and payment plans.
We already supplement the camp expenses for all par-
ents, charging only 22 percent of the actual cost for each
child to attend.
pur expenses triple during the summer, with the
extended hours at our five branches demanding higher
utility bills, more staff hours, and full gas tanks for daily
field trips.
At the same time, the seasonal nature of the area
means a decrease in the donations on which we greatly
rely.
We are very thankful for the funding from the Chil-
dren's Services Council, but it only represents a portion
of our overall budget for the thousands of children we
serve.


Community support is vital to our organization to pro-
vide a safe place for children to learn and grow, especially
during the summer months.
For information on our after-school and summer pro-
grams, contact us at (772) 545-1255.

Response from the Children's Services Council
of Martin County

The Children's Services Council of Martin County
recently awarded over $5.2 million dollars to various
organizations to provide services for the children and
families of Martin County. Of that amount over $407,000
went to the Boys & Girls Clubs.
Although the ranter states that she e-mailed me about
her concern over the increase in the Boys & Girls Clubs'
tuition, I have searched my e-mails back to January and
did not find any e-mails concerning this tuition increase.
Thus, I could not respond to something that I didn't
receive.
As long as CSCMC has been funding the Boys & Girls
Clubs, they have never turned any child or family away
from services.
They provide scholarships for either free tuition, or on
a sliding scale basis, depending on the family's ability to
pay.
As to funding Planned Parenthood, CSCMC funds a
program entitled LaPromesa, a program that targets
Spanish-speaking Latinos with an emphasis on families,
women, and teens, which provides affordable choices
and eliminates traditional barriers to health care.
. The program assists Latino families in learning to
openly discuss family health issues, such as reproductive
health care, puberty, breast cancer, teen pregnancy,
responsible sexual behavior, and sexually transmitted
diseases.
Through La Promesa, Planned Parenthood offers in-
home and community-based workshops, which encour-
age and support the development of honest, open family
communications.
As to the referenced $63 million and $405,000 net prof-
it made by Planned Parenthood, these are funds given to
the organization by foundations, other organizations, or
individuals that are assigned only for specific projects.

Water restrictions

Hundreds of fires are burning all over the state of Flori-
da.
We are now in Phase II of the water restrictions, with
Palm Beach in Phase III.
We may eventually go to Phase IV
Meanwhile, scoff-laws are still watering their yards
every day, and the restrictions are not being enforced.
Also, idiots are throwing cigarette butts out of the win-
dow of their vehicles.
What will it take to get people to care?

From page A6
Maybe it's time to withdraw

I have always supported President Bush and our troops
fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq.
I have opposed the troop withdrawal.
Now the Iraq parliament, having accomplished very lit-
tle, has decided to take a two-month vacation while our
soldiers are fighting, and dying for their country.
Bull feathers!
If our founding fathers had gone on vacation during the
American Revolution, we wouldn't be the United States of
America now.
If the Iraqis don't step up and take charge of their own
country now, maybe we should withdraw and not sacri-
fice another American life for a country that will never get
their act together.

My chance to vent

I have a few rants I wish to vent.
First, and most importantly, is the complete disregard
of water restrictions.
People have to be on another planet if by now they don't
know about our dire drought situation.
This is Friday, and there are three houses with their
sprinklers on. The last I heard, Friday was a no- water day..
Maybe the television and newspapers can, begin
informing people of this on a daily basis. Perhaps the tel-
evision could run a scroll on Fridays informing people of
this.
In my area four houses run their sprinklers every morn-
ing, totally disregarding the law.
A new home put in new grass, and has been watering
every day from 8 a.m. to 1 or 2 p.m. I called code enforce-
ment, and was told that it was legal.
Hose watering is all that is allowed on your specified
days, from 5 to 7 a.m. But, guess what folks, these well-
educated people have their sprinklers on.
I think watering in the morning is a total waste.
Between the wind blowing it, and the sun evaporating it
by 9 or 10 a.m., it's not doing much good.
Why not allow watering only in the evening between 6
and 9 p.m., when the water can soak into the ground, and
replenish the grass?
Folks, let's work together. We need a hot line for viola-
tions, like we have for litter.
When you call code enforcement, you have to leave
your name and number. The violation is not going on by
the time you get a call back.
Next, we come to cell phones.
I have nothing against them, but there is a time and
place for them.
I had two near collisions in one week.
One lady was on the phone, and veered into my lane.
She didn't even blink an eye when I blew my horn, and
slammed on my brakes.
Another one pulled out of a parking lot talking on the
phone, and didn't even look to see if any cars were com-


ing.
People, you got along for many years without a phone
glued to your ear. I am sick and tired of almost having an
accident caused by drivers involved in phone conversa-
tions.
I shouldn't have to blow my horn to get someone to
move when the light turns green because they are preoc-
cupied on the phone.
Enough rudeness!
Also, 1 wish cell phone users would give a little consider-
ation to other people while in a restaurant. While at a
local cafe for breakfast, we encountered six people on
their phones.
Some were conducting business, and others were just
gabbing away over nothing while eating.
What's even worse is when you have to listen to the
other person on the phone, loud and clear.
Hey folks, I want to enjoy my meal in peace and quiet,
so do your business outside.
Regarding cell phones in schools kids are there to get
an education. Cell phones should not be allowed. If there
is an emergency, that is what the school office is for.

Comment on trash pits

To whoever sent in the rant about the area turning into
a trash pit, first of all how can you tell anyone is an illegal
alien?
Do you stop to ask, or are you one of the ignorant peo-
ple who just assume that everyone brown is illegal.
Did you ever stop to think that there are a lot of illegal
immigrants that are white people?
Why put down the people who just want to find work.
Most probably your ancestry, at one time, was an immi-
grant, and you would have been called an illegal alien.
At one time the Americas were only brown people,
before white people came and claimed land that's not
theirs.
If it wasn't for the Hispanic population, who will cut
your grass and wash your dishes in the restaurants?
There are jobs to be done because the lazy white popu-
lation won't do them. They would justrrather collect wel-
fare.
So, stop putting down America because if they let your
ignorant self stay, they should be giving the immigrants a
chance too.
Take it from a real American.

Every part has its function

I wrote in about Christian women wearing their reli-
gious crosses nestled in their cleavage, between their
breasts.
Someone wrote back the next week reminding me that
breasts are made for breastfeeding, and if you think oth-
erwise, you are a pervert.
I'd like to thank that person for reminding me of that.
I was humbled by your response and you are right. .
Feet are made for walking, hands for working, eyes for
seeing, butts for sitting, and breasts for feeding.
Of course although men find all of these attractive in
women, they were put there for their purpose by our God,


nature, and universe.
It is our sick society that perverts our thinking into oth-
erwise. ,
I think, however, the perversion begins with us women.
It's the way we arrange our body parts.

The good, and the bad

I have a rave that also includes a rant.
I recently had a problem with the speeding on the street
that I live on.
I called on a Monday to the Public Works Department.
By Tuesday, two thirty mph speed;signs were put up.
So I'd just like to say, not everything in the city is bad.
I think sometimes people complain when there really
isn't anything to complain about.
That is my rave.
Now, for the rant.
I don't understand the purpose of "adopt-a-street."
I don't know who started this, but the point of adopt-a-
street is to keep the litter off of the streets.
Some of the dirtiest streets in the city are ones that have
an "adopt-a-street" sign on them. It just seems like a
cheap way of advertising.
I'minot as boisterous as a lot of other folks, but I hope I
got the message across.

Idiot or moron?

What's the difference between an idiot and a moron?
An idiot waters his lawn on the wrong day.
A moron waters his lawn every day.
Our local authorities have issued 17 warnings for viola-
tors in the entire county. This tells me that they are not
interested in enforcement.
If they were really interested in enforcement, they
would site the four or five vehicles that. run every red light
at rush hour.
. I guess no one really cares, especially the golf clubs with
their golf courses getting watered.
They won't care until we have a real crisis on our hands.

They choose education, not death

I have a response to "Enough is enough."
I would like to say that the people, the kids, who are
enlisting, are enlisting to go to war to fight for our country.
The kids of Virginia Tech, and every college in this
country, have chosen an education.
They have not chosen to be murdered.

Responses offered to ranters
To all Republican seniors who voted for Reagan, massa-
cred the Clinton/Gore Administration, denounced
Hillary's super good ideas about reforming health care 20
years ago, voted for Bush, then Bush, then Bush again -
don't whine about the state of health care in America
today.
We tried to tell you so, but you thought you knew better.
To all of the wives, daughters, nieces, heiresses, get out
there and vote Democratic.

port, has guided these
professionals in identify-
ing various principles for,
hopefully, eventual incor-
poration into standards."
The goals of the com-
mittee are to help ensure
an accurate diagnosis of
Alzheimer's disease or one
of the six different forms
of dementia.
"This is very impor-
tant," said Mr. Butcher,
"because there is basically
no specific, hard and fast
diagnosis, so there is often
a problem with insurance
and health care coverage."
The committee also
wants to create a demen-
tia-specific care plan, and
cultivate dementia-spe-
cific resources to ensure
the appropriate clinical
care that is identified
because of the care plan.
"Too many people think
Alzheimer's disease is just
a memory issue," said Mr.
Butcher. "We have a long
way to go."
Mr. Butcher says he
chose to work with ACC
because they focus on
helping patients living
with the disease and care-
givers living with disease,
too.
"As much as there is a
need for research and a
cure, I want people to
understand that right now
we have people who need
help patients, caregivers
and families. We do need a
cure, but wef cannot
ignore those right -in front
of us who need help."
Butcher says that as
soon as people begin to
eliminate the negative
connotations of
Alzheimer's disease and
related disorders, signifi-
cant changes will come.
"Nobody wanted this
disease," he said. "It
comes to a patient and it
comes to a family and we
need to ensure that the
services -are there to pro-
vide support for them. Of
course there are days
when I want to walk away
from this horrible disease
and maybe a day- will
come when I can. Mean-
while, I keep looking at
those six bottles of Karo
syrup in the pantry and I
know that, if the tables
were turned, Jeannette
would be right there advo-
cating for and taking care
of me."

Know the lingo when visiting Europe


.M y column on
Canada was so
well received, I,
decided to keep the same
spin, but focus on Vienna,
France and Scotland.

Vienna coffeehouse
tradition

Since the 1680s, the
kaffeehauser has been the
Viennese equivalent of the
Parisian literary cafe or
English pub, a local
gathering place for con-
vivial conversation or
solitary sipping.
Today's coffeehouses
may be traditional, with
coffee served on a silver
tray with a glass of water
or more modern.
Some call themselves
konditoreien and offer a
wide assortment of baked
goods.
You'll want to order in
the local dialect. Popular
orders include: schwarzer
or mokkhc, strong black
coffee like espresso;
braunet; coffee with a dash
of cream; milange, equal
amounts of milk and
coffee with froth; and
fiaker, espresso with sugar
and kirschwasser topped
with whipped cream.

French gourmet

France lays.claim to a
culinary heritage so rich, it
would be impossible to
present it in a single
setting. Think of it as a
gastronomic buffet in
which each region pres-
ents its own wines,
cheeses, breads, sauces,
desserts and special
cooking techniques.
Globus and Cosmos
pride themselves on giving
you a taste of these regions
when you take one of their


escorted tours. They
assure the experience will
astound the taste buds
and change how you think
of eating.
Just for kicks, try this
easy, delicious chicken
recipe from the Bordeaux
region.

CHICKEN BORDEAUX

2 (3-pound) broiler
chickens, quartered
3/4 cup flour, divided
Freshly ground black
pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup salad oil
1 cup canned tomatoes
1-1/2 cups dry white
Bordeaux wine
1 cup sliced mushrooms,
cooked in butter until
wilted
1 clove garlic, finely
chopped, cooked in
butter

Dredge the chicken with
1/2 cup flour, seasoned
with salt and pepper. Heat
the oil in a heavy skillet.
Add the chicken and
brown on all sides. Cover
the pan and cook slowly 25
minutes.
Combine remaining
flour with a little water and
stir into simmering
tomatoes. Cook, stirring
until mixture thickens.
Add the wine, mush-
rooms and garlic.
Cover and cook until the
chicken is tender, about 20
minutes. Serve hot.
Here are some key words
that will help you order
properly.
Le menu: This is not
what we consider the
menu, but a fixed-price
meal with limited choices.
A la carte: Ordering
straight from the menu
options.
Entree: This is an
appetizer or starter
Plat principal: The
main course.


GERALDINE BLANCHARD
Travel columnist
Fromage: Cheese,
usually served between
the main course and
dessert.
Un croque: A ham and
cheese sandwich.
Deux cuisses de
grenouille: Frog's legs
Now here are some tasty
tidbits about France:
There are 29 UNESCO
World Heritage Sites in
France including: Mont St.
Michel Abbey, Versailles
Palace, the Pont du Gard
Roman Aqueduct and the
prehistoric cave drawings
of Lascaux.
The Loire Valley has
more than 1,000 historic
chateaus.
* The American Ceme-
tery in St. Laurent sur Mer,
Normandy, is the final
resting place of 9,386
American soldiers who
fought in World War II.
The MillauViaduc is a
1.5-mile suspension
bridge in southwest
France that is 885-feet
high. It is taller than the
Eiffel Tower and 1,500 feet
longer than the Golden
Gate Bridge.
France produces more
than 500 types of cheeses.
Frederic August
Bartholdi, sculptor of the
Statue of Liberty, was born
in Colmar. The statue is
said to resemble his
mother.
Harry Houdini took his


stage name from Jean
Eugene Robert Houdin, a
famous 19th century
magician from the Loire
Valley.
The guillotine was
devised as a more humane
form of execution. It was
used on more than 40,000
victims during the French-
Revolution.

And now to Scotland

What is an Edinburg
military tattoo?
No inks or needles here,
this tattoo is a soul-stirring
presentation of Scottish
military pipes and drums.
The word "tattoo" comes
from the closing time cry
in 17th-century inns,
meaning to turn off the
taps.
Today, the tattoo takes
place for three weeks every
summer. It is conducted
each evening in the
Esplanade of the historic
Edinburgh Castle.
Complementing the
massed bands of tradition-
al pipes and drums are
international performers.
Each night, the colorful
kaleidoscope of dancers,
musicians and singers
gives way to a lone piper,
playing his haunting
lament from the battle-
ments of the castle.
Hope this stimulated not
only your taste buds but
your desire to visit those
countries. Let your travel
agent connect the dots so
that you may see as much
as possible during your
stay abroad.

GET PUMPED!
A vehicle's water pump is a
critical part of the engine's
cooling system. If it were
unable to pump coolant
throughout the system, it could
spell potential disaster for the
engine. For this reason, it is a
Good idea to inspect all the
gaskets and belts associated
with this critical component. If
they show any sign of failure, it
is better to address the matter
immediately than to be left
standing by the side of the road
with a disabled vehicle in need
of a,tow. Water pumps tend to
fail with some degree of regu-
larity. With this in mind, for-
ward-thinking owners often
replace their vehicles' water
pumps sometime before their
odometers read 100,000 miles.
A water pump is vital to the
engine, If you 'notice coolant
leaking from your car, truck, or
SUV it may be time to have
your water pump replaced. At
ADVANTAGE FORD OF STU-
ART, located at 4000 S.E.
Federal Highway, we can exam-
ine your water pump, and
determine if it needs to be
replaced. Take the.time to have
your vehicle checked by a pro-
fessional. To schedule an
appointment, please call
772.781.6540. We service
most major makes and models
in addition to Ford and
Lincoln/Mercury cars
HINT: When you are replacing
your water pump, consider
replacing hoses and coolant
as well.

I INFORMATION SOURCE


Ethical car dealers always


attract the best customers


In past columns I have
"confessed" to adver-
tising and employing
sales tactics in years past
that I am not proud of
today. I hasten to say that
I never did anything
illegal, but 20 to 40 years
ago, my ethical standards
were a lot lower than they
are today.
I evolved and my
customers evolved.
Consumers today are
far better educated,
informed and demanding
than those of three
decades back. As my
business practices, sales
tactics and advertising
improved, I noticed a
very interesting, positive
parallel improvement in
the kind of customers my
company was attracting.
It was a sort of a "push-
pull" phenomenon. I
needed to get better to
meet the expectations of
my customers and, as I
improved, I attracted a
better kind of customer.
Today, my customers
are smarter, more afflu-
ent, better educated and
"nicer." There's a good
reason for this.
For one thing, my
advertising is totally
ethical and honest. I
don't advertise used cars
for $99, I don't advertise
that if you buy vehicle
you can get a second one
free and I don't advertise
a car below cost, knowing
that there is only one
available which is next to
impossible for the cus-
tomer to buy.
When you advertise
like this, you attract
people who are unedu-
cated, gullible, naive or
expecting "something for
nothing."
The smart, fair dealing
customers, who know
that "there is no such
thing as a free lunch,"
buy their cars from me.
I don't surprise my
customers with a dealer
fee/doc fee ranging up to


EARL STEWART
On Cars

$1,000, which is nothing
more than profit to you.
In fact, many of my
customers were almost
yours, until you tried to
"slip in" your dealer fee.
A lot of my service
customers used to be
your service customers
until they discovered that
you charge an extra 5 or
10 percent on their
service bill and tried to
justify it by calling it
"sundry supplies," "shop
supplies" or "environ-
mental impact fee."
So, you ask, what's so
great about having smart,
educated, affluent and
nice customers?
Well, for one thing, I
don't get sued like you
do, and I don't get nasty
letters from the Better
Business Bureau, County,
Office of Consumer
Affairs and Florida
Attorney General's office.
The last time I was sued
was about seven years
ago. Ironically, my
customer's lawyer sued
me because I settled a
dispute with his client
(my customer).
After he wrote me a
letter saying he was suing
me, I called his customer
on the phone, drove out
to her home, sat down
with her and her hus-
band at their kitchen
table and we settled our
differences over a cup of
coffee. This lawyer sued
me because I deprived

him of the fee he would
have charged her if he
could have sued me.
It's an ongoing saga
after all these years. It's
too long a story to tell
here, but I will write a
column about it one day.
I'm guessing that the car
dealers who read this
column (and I know you
do) have at least a half
dozen lawsuits going on
all of the time.
Another great thing
.about having nicer,
smarter, more affluent
customers is that they
treat my employees and
me with courtesy and
respect, just as we treat
them. I love to walk into
my dealership because
customers smile, wave
and even stop me to tell
me how well they were
treated.
Customers, who don't
see me in person, know
that all they have to do is
pick up one of four rgd
phones located in the
showroom, service drive,
next to the service
cashier and in the body
shop to be in immediate
personal contact with
me. I even give my
customers my business
card with my home
phone and cell phone
numbers.
Most of the calls I get
are complimentary, just
as my personal encoun-
ters. You wouldn't do
what I do because you
couldn't. Your secretary
screens your phone calls
and you wouldn't dare
give your.home or cell
phone number to a
customer.
By the way, if you aren't
familiar with my dealer-
ship, I probably sell a lot
more cars than you do. I
average about 475 a
month. I have a lot more
customers than you, so
it's not as though I'm a
little rural car dealer who
can get away with what I
do because I have so few
customers.
Here's another benefit
of having such nice,
intelligent customers:
they don't have unrealis-
tic expectations as your
customers do.
Remember that you
probably tricked your
customer into coming in
with your advertising. If
it worked and your
customer bought a car
from you thinking that
you really could give him
a $10,000 minimum trade
allowance on his car,
which was really worth
only $500, you have
reinforced his unrealisti-
cally high expectations.
In his future dealings

Friends can fill loneliness


when the family is far away


Numerous studies
have shown that
having a support
network (a fancy way of
saying friends) helps to
prevent or lessen the effects
of a variety of illnesses from
depression to Alzheimer's to
cancer.
For caregivers, a support
network can help you
handle the stress and take
better care of your loved
one.
Research has even shown
that having friends and
family is a marker for longer
life.
Unfortunately, creating a
circle of friends is not
something you can do
overnight, or take like a pill
whenever you need it.
Making and keeping
friends takes work, but the
rewards more than make up
for the work involved.
I was reminded of how
important friends are
throughout our lives when
my mother, who is 80, told
me of showing her good
friend, Connie, how to put
on eye make-up.
Both women laughed at
how much fun they'd had.
You're never to old to enjoy
spending time together,
sharing fun.
. I have been blessed with
good friends from child-
hood and college; they share
myhistory.
Friends from mid-life
share the trials and tri-
umphs of growing up.
New friends and I've
met so many new friends in
Florida in the few years
we've been here help me
cope with the present and,
like Connie and my mother,
are people with whom I can
laugh and share everyday.
I can't mention you all, but


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


you know who you are.
What do you do if you
don't have a support
network?
So many people in Florida
have left friends and family
behind and may not have
realized how lonely they'd
feel.
I remember the first
weekend we were in Florida.
I stood in a store, thinking
that if I vaporized on the
spot, no one would even
know.
A short time later, I went to
the American Cancer
Society's office in Stuart and
volunteered.
I was welcomed with open
arms, and that began the
gradual process of getting
involved in the community.
I don't have.a lot of family,
and my husband's family is


all in England.
Sometimes I miss the
changes that occur, new
babies, birthdays, holidays.
I've tried very hard to be a
.presence in the lives of the
children and grandchildren
of my friends, who are
generous enough to share
them with me.
My friend Wendy's
daughter is getting married
in NewYork and we've
"conferred" about what to
wear and how to acces-
sorize.
If you miss being around
children, you could also
volunteer at a school or at
the Boys and Girls Club.
Many kids need mentors; it's
a great way to connect with
a child.
Shared interests are a great
way to meet people.
For men, it may be
participating in sporting
events, playing golf or cards.
My parents play bridge
several times a week.
If you're a crafter, join a
group. If you have an illness
or are a caregiver, consider a
support group.
Meeting people who share
your interests and concerns
is a great way to connect
with others and make
friends.
One thing I have discov-
ered is that having friends

Enjoy a great meal on Memorial Day


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Hope you had
a good week.
Today's column is dedicat-
ed to all the brave men and
women who gave their lives
in past wars to preserve our
freedom, and especially to
the recent losses in this
horrible, never-ending new
war.
May God help those still


in a foreign land and bring
them all safely home.
As we celebrate, take a
moment to reflect and give
thanks.
This, celebration is always
about food as we fire up the
grill and cook ribs, steaks,
hot dogs, hamburgers,
chicken, etc.
You can still keep it low-
fat if you use lean steaks,


such as sirloin, have your
hamburger meat custom
ground from a trimmed
bottom round roast and
use low fat hot-dogs.
What is a barbecue
without salads?
Potato and macaroni
salads are the two big
hitters, but if you buy them
in the deli, they're expen-
sive and taste pretty bad.
Today's salad recipes are
family favorites, but if
you're not careful they can
really pile on the fat.
The culprit is the mayon-
naise, which is made with
oil and eggs.
Most low-fat mayonnaise
is terrible, but Hellman's
light is very good. It is the
one with the blue-green
top. I promise you, in a
salad, no one can tell the
difference.
Have a safe and sober
holiday.
Enjoy, and see you next
week!

Get fresh taste of

citrus from your

own back yard


V- vcrlss




LA AM/n .,v' kr


Corrmetng Mijeple, fvoIroPIS with n..sm
Laroe Punis. Post 1K. -Cataracts WA nV'm. o


Hi everybody and
welcome! Almost
everybody likes the
fresh taste of citrus,
whether it's oranges,
grapefruits or tangerines.
Sometimes, the sweetest
most delicious fruit can
come from trees that you
raised yourself in your own
back yard.
When most people pick
out their favorite oranges or
grapefruit at the grocery
store, usually the first thing
they think about is Florida.
This delicious fruit was
introduced to our state in
1565 by Spanish explorers.
To top it off, the Orange
Blossom is also our state
flower.
Most of the fruit produced
in our state is not from
South Florida, but Central
Florida, in an area that we
refer to as growing zone 9.
The reason for this is that
in order for the fruit to get
its' sugar sweet taste, the
fruit must be subject to a
period of cool tempera-
tures.
While growers welcome
cool weather, freezing
temperatures for more than
four hours can cause
damage to the fruit.
There are many varieties
of citrus available and it is
mainly your own personal
choice that should deter-
minewhich flavor you,
should buy.
Look forhealthy trees that
have dark green foliage and
no signs of disease or
insects.
Once you make the
purchase, it is time to take it
home and have some fun.
Citrus likes to be planted
in areas that have good
drainage and a full day of
sun. If the area you have
chosen floods during heavy
rain, build up the ground
with some topsoil to keep
the roots as much above
the water as possible.
When planting your tree,
use a good quality topsoil,


and be sure you do not
plant in an area that will be
affected by your sprinkler
system.
Citrus trees do not like
excess water; this can also
lead to dry fruit. Do not be
tempted to water your tree
too often and also, remem-
ber to keep the area around
the tree clear of any grass or
mulch. Any of these
circumstances can cause
potentially lethal fungus
diseases to destroy your
tree.
You should also keep
weeds away from the base
of your trees to be sure
proper drainage is estab-
lished.
Another critical ingredi-
ent for good citrus growth is
fertilizer.
Choose a good quality
citrus food that has minor
elements. You also should
apply a minor element
spray that contains ingredi-
ents such as iron, boron
and manganese..
One mistake that many
citrus trees owners make is
pruning their trees. Citrus
trees should never be
pruned.
Just let the trees shed their
branches naturally.
Thunderstorm winds and
tropical systems will
naturally prune the tree as
it sheds its branches.
For those of you who have
limited yard space or live in
an apartment, you can
purchase dwarf citrus trees
that you can grow in a
sunny window or on a
balcony. You canrpurchase
these trees in Florida
Turnpike gift shops and
airport gift shops.

JAMES TUCKED
The Spirit Guidi


This story was sent to me
by my good friend, Kristen
Eppley, who lives in Virginia
Beach. You are going to love
it.

puppies he needed to
ell. He painted a sign
advertising the four pups
and set about nailing it to a
post on the edge of his yard.
As he was driving the last
nail into the post, he felt a
tug on his overalls. He
looked down into the eyes
of a little boy.
"Mister," the boy said, "I
want to buy one of your
puppies."
"Well," said the farmer, as
he rubbed the sweat off the
back of his neck, "these
puppies come from fine
parents and cost a good deal
of money."
The boy dropped his head
for a moment. Then
reaching deep into his
pocket, he pulled out a
handful of change and held
it up to the farmer.
"I've got 39 cents. Is that
enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer.
And with that he let out a
whistle. "Here, Dolly!" he
called.
Out from the doghouse
and down the ramp ran
Dolly followed by four little
balls of fur.
The little boy pressed his
face against the chain link
fence. His eyes danced with
delight.
As the dogs made their
way to the fence, the little
boy noticed something
stirring inside the dog-
house.
Slowly, another little ball
appeared, this one notice-
ably smaller. Down the
ramp it slid. Then in a
somewhat awkward
manner, the little pup began
hobbling toward the others,

Tai Chi At the Palm City Recreation Center

The Martin County Parks and Recreation Depart-
ment offers Tai Chi classes at the Palm City Recreation
Center.
Pat Lawson teaches the classes, which are arranged
into groups according to experience.
Tai Chi is a gentle, slow motion exercise that origi-
nated in ancient China. It combines elements of Chi-
nese Yoga and meditation with self-defense tech-
niques and the Taoist Yin and Yang philosophy.
Classes are for all ages and ability levels. The practi-
tioner does not need special clothes, equipment, or
space and can practice in a chair or standing up.
The program includes components to increase flexi-
bility, tone the muscles, develop postural alignment,
enhance cardio-vascular fitness, and improve the
mind-body connection.
The recreation center is located on the west side of
the Palm City Bridge. The class is offered at 6 p.m. on
Tuesday and 1 p.m. on Thursdays at the recreation
center, and 6 p.m. on Wednesdays at Indian RiverSide
Park in Jensen Beach. The fee is $30 per month.
For more information, contact Pat Lawson at (772)

means being one.
It takes work. It's worth it,
though.
Sometimes, when I reach
that point of despair, when I
wonder if I can really handle
so many things by myself, I
am reminded that I am not
bymyself.
Itmaybe call from a
faraway friend, such as
Carole or Mim, or a close-
to-home one, from Peg, the
sister I never had.
They tell me how much I
mean to'them and how I am
not alone at all.
Suddenly, I believe it and


things don't seem as dark.
It was said of Eleanor
Roosevelt that, "she would
rather light candles than
curse the darkness."
If your darkness is loneli-
ness, become a friend.
Giving to someone else will
light your way.

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.
.f My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "Mi CUS
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expfectati
customers,


/ Virtually every car dealer Of educa
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a sophistic
'dealer fee/doe fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig)
to nearly $1,000. This extra
i 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
tee is simply to increase the price of the car
IY M ENT and your profit in such a manner that It is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
culture wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
like one and when I stopped charging it a few years
with your ago it was scary. But I did it because I could

Now, here Is the good news. After eliminat-

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-

spread. My volume of oar 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

I'm not going to tell you that

"sheriff' that has come to

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

STUART Martin
County's oldest communi-
ty theatre is gearing up for
some of its youngest
thespians.
Camp Barn Theatre will
take place from July 9
through August 3 for
students from fourth-

are interested in learning
more about the perform-
ing arts.
The camp, the first to be
held by the Barn Theatre

participants to develop
self-confidence and
creative expression while
teaching the basic tools of
the theatrical trade, said
Linda Hund-West, camp
supervisor and chair-
woman of Barn Theatre

"We are really excited
about bringing this
program back," said Mrs.
Hund-West. "We need to
cultivate the youth for the
future."
The camp staff includes
TaraWeidenfeller, who
will serve as director. She

Comedy Central
favorite
Kathleen Madigan
brings her irreverent
humor
to the Lyric Theatre
on June 2.

0 SOMETHING


friday


saturday


BY SHELLEY KOPPELL
Entertainment writer

Comedy Central's Kathleen
Madigan has opinions on almost
everything. In fact, she sent me on
a history search after a telephone
interview because she insisted that
she was upset with the new Pope
for his first decision, choosing his
name.
"He could have picked any name
off the Pope list. There was a Pope
Hilarius from 467-469. How did he
pass up being Hilarius Two?"
It turns out she was right about
Pope Hilarius although off on the
dates by a few years, but as she was
voted "Best Female Stand-Up" at
the American Comedy Awards and'
not class historian, you can forgive


her the error. The frequent Leno
and Letterman guest brings her act
to the Lyric Theatre on June 2, and
you can see why she's sticking to
comedy.
Ms. Madigan has appeared in
"100 Greatest Celebrity Oops," so I
asked her about some of Holly-
wood's more stupid moments and
she didn't mince words.
"I think the most stupid thing is
the drunk driving," she said. "I
understand getting drunk. I'm with
you. I don't understand the driving.
If you're so drunk, call a cab. Mel
Gibson could call the Clydesdales
to come and bring him beer!"
Bad plastic surgery is on her list,
too.
"I love Joan RiverlsIftfe ended
up looking like a puma," Ms.


Keeping a strong focus on primary goals contin-
ues to work for you. Keep releasing everything
from your past that limits or sidetracks you from
the main pursuit You don't have to be all things
to all people anymore. You have grown beyond
it Find new ways to go within and renew your
spirit daily. Set limits and others will grant you
your heart's desires.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
The moon and Mercury in Gemini gives you an
.extra boost of clear thinking and feeling. Move
your best ideas forward now. Act decisively on
your immediate goals and plans. Your strong
sense of responsibility will guide you as needed.
It's called conscience. Yours is solid, old-fash-
ioned and can always be counted on to do the
right thing.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Venus in Cancer gives your natural strong heart
energy an even greater boost Increase your
action when it feels right. Slow down when it


Madigan says. "I understand bad
surgery if you're poor, but Kenny
Rogers? What did he do, go to
someone who said he was a
surgeon? Bad plastic surgery is
forever."
The native of St. Louis, which she
calls a blue area in a red state,
comes from a liberal family. Her
dad, she says, was a liberal judge in
the Kennedy tradition. She is not a
fan of the current administration.
"When you leave the country,
the people can't believe he's the
president," she said. "In Ireland, a
woman said to me, 'Can you believe
George Bush is your president?'
"You know who can't believe it?
Jeb Bush. He's says 'I'm the smart

doesn't Do something nice for yourself for a
change. You are always doing for others first.
Take care of yourself and others will want to
help you more. Like attracts like. Try it and you
may learn to like it

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Your strong belief in doing things right is a major
factor in your wonderful personal, professional
and social success. When you get that "right
feeling" nothing can stop you or slow you down
from victory over life. You have a deep reservoir
of love, intelligence and passion. These are the
key elements of success and you use them so
well.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Your generous attitude to others is your greatest
blessing. Refuse to let the world or negative atti-
tudes pull you down. Stick to your plans and
continue to manifest positive results. When one,
plan doesn't work out, create a new and better
one. Now take action, find strong motivation,

finish what you start and continue to reap the
rewards.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct 22
Your spiritual growth is amazing. It will serve
you well in the months ahead. You have
learned to write down, affirm and visualize your
dreams. You are beginning to see created reali-
ties manifesting. You are getting closer to realiz-
ing your highest dreams. Why? Because of your
strong trust and faith in the universal power.
Thanks for inspiring all of us.

Scorpio-Oct.23-Nov.21
The love you feel for life is the fuel that moti-
vates you on and up toward the higher goals
you have set This will be a great year to be alive.
Stay focused on the top priorities and your
vision will continue to guide you to wonderful
success and happiness. This passion is the fuel
that drives your magical spirit Very few have this

Sonnys BBQ


- a must visit

I made a mistake when I accepted
the Sonny's BBQ dining review.
Don't get me wrong, the food was
just as delicious as it always is, and
the service was top notch. The
mistake was not in the restaurant
selection, it was in the aftermath.
The food was so good that I couldn't
stop eating, and in turn could barely
move afterward.
But that's really not a bad thing. In
fact, it's what you want out of BBQ
place.
So when I sat down at the Sonny's
Port St. Lucie location on US 1, I
knew what I was getting myself into.
Sonny's is one of the most well known
restaurants on the Treasure Coast,
and certainly one of the most popu-
lar. When I moved here, it was the
first place I went, and if I ever leave, it
will be one of the last places I go.
It's just that good.
On this particular afternoon I
decided on getting the Super Combo
for $11.99. I simply couldn't decide
what I wanted, so I got a little bit of
everything. Pork, ribs, and chicken
served with cornbread or garlic bread


(I got both) and your choice of two
sides.
Just six minutes after ordering my
food (yes, I timed them), it was sitting
in front of me.
Sonny's quickness is one of the
more appealing aspects to the
restaurant. Beside the great food, you
don't have to worry about lunch
taking too long and missing that
important meeting at work. They also
have great lunch specials that are all
reasonably priced at around $6 or $7.
When my food came, I immediately
unwrapped the tinfoil from my sweet
potato and dove in. I added some of
the cinnamon butter to it and it was
delicious.
After taking a few bites of the potato
and a bite of the cornbread, I went
after the main course.
I decided to work around the plate
so that I got a good taste of every-
thing that Sonny's had to offer. My
server, Dave, pointed out the four
different BBQ sauces at my disposal,
which I quickly put to work.
One of the things that I particularly
like about Sonny's is that they don't
overpower the meal with their own
sauce. They leave that up to you.
I found that the Sweet and Smokin'


sauces were my favorite, and espe-
cially good when mixed together.
They really brought out the best
flavors of both the chicken and the
ribs.
The pork also went well with all the
sauces. At the suggestion of David, I
tried some of the pork with my garlic
bread. Fantastic. I highly recommend
ordering one of their sandwiches
using the garlic bread.
By this point in the meal, I was
beginning to realize, that, despite my
best efforts, there was just too much
food. So I made sure to save at least
one rib and some pork for my next
day's lunch. What a good choice.
The only thing better than Sonny's
for lunch, was having it the next day,
too.
The only disappointing thing about
my meal was that I didn't have
enough room for dessert or their
salad bar.
But that will just have to wait for
next time. And like anyone who has
ever been to a Sonny's BBQ, there is
always a next time.
Sonny's is located at 3120 South US
1 in FortPierce, 10180 US 1 in Port St.
Lucie and 1961 South Federal Hwy in

South Fork High School shortstop Glen Johnson leaps in the air to keep a ground ball from making it into left field
against Port St. Lucie High School during the region 4-5A quarterfinal game Tuesday, May 1. The South Fork Bulldogs
were eliminated from postseason with the Jaguars' 6-3 victory.


Bulldogs end season in quarterfinals


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
When South Fork High
School senior Shawn
Swaringen stepped into
the batters' box in -the
seventh inning at Jaguar
Field at Port St. Lucie
High School, he was hop-
ing it wouldn't be his last
at-bat for the Bulldogs.
But a sliding grab in
font of Port St. Lucie's
dugout by Jaguar pitcher
Andrew Durden sent the
home crowd into celebra-
tion, and Swaringen back
to the Bulldogs dugout,
his high school baseball
career complete.
A season filled with dra-
matic wins and senior
leadership ended May 1
with a 6-3 loss in the
regional quarterfinals to


conference rival Port St.
Lucie.
It was the Bulldogs' first
regional playoff appear-
ance since the 2000 sea-
son.
"It's just so sad for our
seniors," said head coach
Mike Harper. "We played
so well down the stretch
and we sure came out
tonight like we were
tight. I've never seen us
this tight before. Maybe
because it was regional
playoffs, I don't know. I
hate to end on this but
there were some good
plusses."
South Fork (18-10)
struggled to support sen-
ior pitcher Charlie Rob-
bins (6-2) against the
Jaguars, as Port St. Lucie
scored four runs in the
second inning. But the

This Conrad shoots, scores, runs


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer,
Many high school girls will tell you
that prom night is one of the most
nerve-wracking events of their high
school career.
Between the lengthy hair and
makeup sessions, dinner reserva-
tions, limo arrangements and
pictures, it's easily one of the more
stressful events they will experience.
For Kayla Conrad, prom weekend
was a time to relax and have fun.
And she took the SATs the same day.
How can that be possible you
might ask?
Just a week before, the Jensen


Beach High School junior was
experiencing the stress of being a
defending state track champion.
Conrad won the 800-meter race at.
the 2006 Florida State 2A finals, and
the pressure of repeating in 2007
loomed large. But as with most
things Conrad is involved with, it
didn't get to her.
She just ran.
The result was a successful defense
of her title.
"You hear all the time how hard it
is to repeat. And I had that in the
back of my mind, 'if you don't win it's
OK. You have your senior year,'" said
Conrad, who finished the race in 2
minutes and 17 seconds.


The time was one second faster
than Monica Lugo of Bishop Moore,
who ran in the heat before Conrad's.
"Even after I finished, I didn't have
confidence that I won. So when I
heard, that's when it hit me and I
was like, 'oh my God.'"
Growing up in a soccer family,
both sister Kristen and brother Kyle
played, Kayla started running track
simply to stay in shape.
The summer before her freshman
year, she tore her ACL and was only
able to play the second half of the
soccer season. She used track as a
rehab to work her knee out and get

Durden who got his
fourth save of the season.
"I thought we came out
and battled McGee great.
I thought we gave him all
he wanted," said Harper.
"We got him out of the
game which was to our
plus and we felt we
should have done some-
thing .with Durden and
we didn't. We just didn't
make adjustments like
we preach to the kids."
While Harper and the


Bulldogs were focusing
on what could have been,
Port St. Lucie head coach
Tony Malizia was doing
the same thing in the
opposing dugout, but for
different reasons.
He watched the Bull-
dogs erase a seven-run
deficit earlier this season,
eventually beating his
team 8-7. When South
Fork started putting runs
on the board, Harper
couldn't help but think

he was experiencing ddeja
vu.
"You know they're
going to score runs," said
Malizia.' "You know
they're going to hit the
ball hard, you just hope
they hit it at somebody."
But that fear ended
when Durden took the
mound. And when the
senior went flying into
the dugout fence on the
game's last play, it
became clear that the
Jaguars were just a more
determined team that
day.
"I was either going to be
eating the fence and
missing or catching and
sliding," said Durden. "I
just wanted to win."
For the six Bulldog sen-
iors, Shawn Swaringen,
Glen Johnson, Dallas
Burkhalter, Shane Farrell,
Sean Tighe, and Robbins,
it was moment of reflec-
tion and heavy hearts, as
they finished their
careers at South Fork,
helping bring the team


back to playoffs for the
"'first time in seven years.
"It's probably the best
team we've ever had,"
said Swaringen, who
along with Durden has
committed to IRCC next
season. "It's the best that
I've -seen anyway."
The Bulldogs lose a big
part of their lineup next
year but bring back 11
players, including their
.top two run producers in
juniors Will Claunch
(.429 avg., 5 home runs,
23 RBI) and Dan Harper
(.451 avg., 20 RBI). Harp-
er (2-1, 1.06 ERA) will
also be one of the area's
top returning pitchers.
But for the first time in
almost a decade, they will
enter the season as a
team that made the play-
offs.
"We had a lot of talent;
we just didn't come to
play in the big game,"
said Claunch. "Every day,
every night, I'll think
about this game. But now
it's football season."

SIHyUUlr IMUy I 0Bj -


ready for soccer the
following year.
But after finishing eighth
at the state meet in the
400-meter race, Conrad
was hooked on track.
Oddly enough, it would
still be a year before she
ever ran her signature
event, the 800, in competi-
tion. That would come at
the Treasure Lakes Confer-
ence meet in 2006.
After winning the race in
conference, district,
regional and state, it was
clear she was on to some-
thing.
"I thought, 'OK, maybe
this is my race,'" Conrad
said.
She was right.
But after talking with
her, you wouldn't assume
Conrad has four silver and
three gold medals (she
also was on the 2006 state
champion 4 x 400 team)
sitting at home. That is, of
course, until she gets
ready to compete.
A typical teenager,
Conrad enjoys going to the
beach or movies with
friends, but like any good
athlete, she won't hesitate
to take on her best friends
for the right to be No. 1.
"It's Cranium (the trivia
game) around here," she
says with a laugh.
As a soccer player turned
track star, Conrad has
switched her focus to
running, although her
mother, Mary Ann, says
she is happy playing
whichever sport is in
season.
Last summer though


Conrad started running in
Amateur Athletic Union
meets instead of playing
for Jensen Beach soccer
club. With her name no
longer a secret in the track
community, she has
started to receive e-mails
and information packets
from different college
track coaches around the
state.
Because she is only a
junior, coaches cannot
formerly contact her. She
expects to hear more from
schools as the summer
goes on and especially
when track season rolls
around. The process of
college applications and
scholarships can be
stressful, but keeping with
her 'no worries' attitude,
Conrad isn't too worried
about it. She watched
brother Kyle go through
the same process this past
year, as soccer scholar-
ships piled in. He eventu-
ally signed with Lynn
University.
She knows she wants to
run in college, whether it's
on a track, a soccer field,
or both, and doesn't have a
school she is "dying to go
to." Although her sister
Kristen, a freshman at the
University of Florida, has
been trying to recruit her
to come to Gainesville.
"The joke is since the
Gators went back-to-back,
I guess its only right for
you to come up here,"
Kayla said.
Before she decides
where she will attend
college, she realizes that

brates after scoring against Suncoast during a soccer
game last January. Conrad won the 800-meter race at the
Florida State 2A final last week in Winter Park.


she has another year of
high school to go. And
while thoughts of a three-
peat in the 800 might be in
her mind, Conrad won't
think about it until next
track season.
"I just brush it off,"
Conrad said. "Once you
start thinking about it, it
just stresses you out. You
can't do that to yourself.
I've learned to take every
game or every race one by
one because you never
know what's going to
happen."

Drought's effect on golf courses not as bad as some think


Is your golf course as dry
as my lawn? I don't
know about you, but my
yard is bone dry and
sounds like I'm stepping on
potato chips as I walk
across it.
While I like not having to
mow my grass every week, I
prefer my lawn and my golf
course a little on the green
side.

worst droughts on record.
I spoke to a friend from
Okeechobee and she tells
me the Big Lake is down to
a depth of only 9 feet.
Irrigation wells and
recharge wells for ponds
are going dry as well.
So what are our golf

invasion of brown tees,
fairways and greens?

courses are not restricted
to the same two- or three-
days-a-week rule for
watering as we are. They
are allowed to water every
evening to keep the course
in playable condition.
Courses are, however,
limited to the number of
gallons they can use each
month. Currently, that
allotment has been
trimmed by 15 percent and
by the time this story hits
the newsstands will likely
be up to 30 percent.
Most courses have begun
to take pages from the
British way of course
watering management.
They are only watering
tees and greens, keeping
them from getting over-
stressed and baked in the
hot sun, letting the fair-
ways and rough get what
they can from any rain or
dew that settles there.
Fortunately, the newer
strains of grasses that we
have on today's courses are
designed for drought
conditions. The fairways

may turn brown and
terrible, but they do not
die.
All it takes is one of our
afternoon thunderstorms
to green them up a little.
The problem we are
seeing is that the water
level in ponds and lakes is
dramatically low. All that
this truly affects is the
aesthetics of the golf
course, as most lakes and
ponds serve as a reserve for
when more water is needed

or to store water from a
storm.
Courses purchase their
water just as we do. They
only use reclaim wells,
drilled to a depth of 100
feet or more, to refill their
lakes when they begin to
drop. Unfortunately, those
wells are beginning to only
spit water instead of gush.
Charles Blevins, course
superintendent at Ham-
mock Creek in Palm City, is
not too concerned, yet.
"For the eight years that I
have been here, we've been
well below our water
allotment," he tells me.
"We're allocated 13 million
gallons a month and we've
never used more than eight
(million). My lakes are
down, but I'm not worried
about water for the
course."
Blevins doesn't foresee
any short-term problems,
even as water allocations
are being cut. He says that
all his course needs is a few
good rains to get the lakes
back to normal.

"When Jack Nicklaus
designed this course he
designed it to play hard,
fast and dry," Blevins said.
"We usually don't get to
play it like this, except for a
few weeks in the winter
and spring. The course was
designed for the conditions
-we're having. Other than
some spots where the carts
are wearing on the course,
we're just fine."
While some courses
search for water or see their
allocation cut, others have
the advantage of being able
to purchase and use
reclaimed water.
Eagle Marsh in Jensen
Beach has the good fortune
of being located just across
the street from the Martin
County water treatment
facility. The course buys as'
much as 500,000 gallons of
reclaimed water a day from
the county.
"There are no restrictions
on using reclaimed water;"
said head professional Paul
Howley. "We can stay as
lush in this drought as we
do any other time during
the year."
By using water from the
county, Eagle Marsh is able
to leave its lakes and ponds
alone, keeping water levels
in them near normal. The
wetland areas, however, are
another story. They are as
dry as my lawn.
Hopefully Mother Nature
will soon grant us a
reprieve from this dry
weather. We can only hope
and pray that the reprieve
does not come in the form
of a hurricane.
