Molly's House family, board


battling over stewardship


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART When Molly
Sharkey was ill with
leukemia, she dreamed of
building a house where
families of other sick peo-

Molly died in 1992, but

State: our

kids need

more gym

classes

BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
Local school districts
are working to figure out
how to accommodate
more physical education
at the elementary level
following passage of new
legislation last week.
Aimed at reducing
within the next 10 years
thenumber of Floridians
who suffer from chronic
diseases resulting from
obesity, the bill man-
dates students in kinder-
garten through fifth
grade get at least 150
minutes of physical edu-
cation per week, or a half
hour a day.
This is about an hour
more per week than
what most area schools
currently provide.
Actual physical activity
affecting strength, agili-
ty, flexibility, movement
and stamina is only one
aspect of the legislation.
Physical education also
includes health and well-
ness studies.
Martin County public
school officials are
researching ways to
meet the guidelines of
.the bill, which district
spokeswoman Cathy
Brennan said shouldn't

together to make her
dream come true, and in
1996, Molly's House was
opened in Stuart.
Despite the good inten-
tions that led to the cre-
ation of Molly's House, the
facility is now enmeshed
in a bitter and public bat-
tle pitting Molly's family
against the board of direc-
tors, which holds the
responsibility of keeping


Molly's legacy alive.
The Sharkey family say
they had an unwritten
understanding with the
governing board of Molly's
House that a member of
Molly's family would
always be part of the
board of directors. Those
members are permitted to

Nature

Center

seeks

upgrades
By MICHELLE GENTILE
Staff writer
When hurricanes
Frances, Jeanne and
Wilma tore through
Possum Long Nature
Center, it became the
catalyst for organizers
to plan and renew the
center's six acres and
three houses located in
the middle of Stuart.
"We've been working
on a master plan to
restore the area ever
since the hurricanes
swept through, leaving
much of the native veg-
etation destroyed," said
Greg Braun, executive
director of the Audubon
of Martin County. "As
the plan developed we
recognized the impor-
tance of sprucing up the
grounds so the commu-
nity can enjoy it."
The Possum Long
Nature Center has six
acres of forest land
within the city of Stuart
and is known as "a little
oasis" in the middle of
an urban setting.
"It's a green space in
the middle of the city
where you can get lost
in nature and get away
from the noise of the
streets," said Tom Luci-

Memorial Day services to

include 'Setting of the Crosses'

Cadet Caleb Lawson is shown building one of 220
wooden crosses that will be placed in Memorial Park in
Stuart beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 25.


BY RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART Fallen soldiers
of World War II who called
the Treasure Coast home
will be honored for three
days in Stuart, concluding
with a march by veterans'
groups on Memorial Day.
. "This year, we decided to
get away from a parade
with clowns and other
things, because Memorial
Day is a day for soldiers we
lost in past conflicts. We
are trying to make it more
of a somber event," said
Michael Roberts, board
member of the Road to
Victory Museum and
chairman of the board of
the Victory Forge Military
Academy.
Victory Forge Military
Academy, located in Port
St. Lucie, is a live-in aca-
demic school that uses
military-style regulations
to turn around the lives of
troubled teens.


Marcus Feeback, 17, was
sent to the academy from
Michigan by his family last
year.
"At first, I thought my
family was just trying to
get rid of me. But I realize it
was hard for them to send
me. I was on the wrong
path, and now I feel like a
whole new person. I'm
doing wbll in school and
have a lot of respect for my
family," said Marcus, who
has reached the rank of
sergeant.
The academy cadets
have built, sanded and
painted 219 crosses con-
taining dog tags with the
names of fallen WWII sol-
diers from Martin, St.
Lucie and Indian River
counties.
"A project like making
the wooden memorials is a
positive way for our boys
to pay homage to the brave
men and women who
made the ultimate sacri-
fice for our freedom," said


Col. Alan Weierman, com-
mander of the Victory
Forge Military Academy.
"Before building the
crosses, we discussed the
reason behind the project
and read each of the
names out loud. It helped
the boys recognize the
importance of what we
were doing in light of what
these individuals gave," he
said.
Marcus understands the
significance of the crosses.
"It is so important to
remember all our veterans,
especially with the way the
world is today," he said.
"The public has lost
focus on how much the
veterans have done to
allow us to be here. I feel
we need to keep it going,
so it is something we never
forget, like Sept. 11," said
Marcus.
On Friday, May 25 at 9
a.m., the cadets from the

academy will begin a "Set-
ting of the Crosses" cere-
mony, placing the wooden
memorials in perfect rows
near the stone monument
in Memorial Park on East
Ocean Blvd. One addition-


al cross will represent the
Unknown Soldier.
"We will be there all
weekend," said Mr.
Roberts. "Twice a day, the
boys from the academy
will read all of the names at
10 a.m. and 3 p.m."'
The cadets will be posted
as honor guards 24 hours a
day from Friday, May 25 at


3 p.m. until Monday, May
28 at 3 p.m., utilizing simi-
lar protocol as at Arlington
Cemetery and the Tomb of
the Unknown Soldier.
A traditional Memorial
Day service will begin on
Monday, May 28 at the
Gazebo on East Ocean
Blvd. in Stuart at 10 a.m.,
with the marching of veter-


ans and veterans' organi-
zations and concluding
with a service at Memorial
Park at 11 a.m.
Mr. Roberts said vehicles
from the Road to Victory
Museum, including a M8
Greyhound 1942 from
WWII, will be on display at
Memorial Park in down-
town Stuart for the event


on Memorial Day.
Mr. Roberts said they
plan on making the "Set-
ting of the Crosses" an
annual event.
"This year, we are honor-
ing those from WWII, and
next year we will research
the Korean War and honor
those soldiers and the fol-
lowing year, Vietnam. We


will have the crosses to
represent them, doing
them in the order that they
came in history," he said.
Marcus knows the
importance of celebrating
Memorial Day.
"I want to make sure the
veterans get a lot more
respect, and to tell them
'thankyou,'" he said.

"I don't see any major
structural changes in the
future," she said, adding
that the district should be
able to comply with the
new law without facing
great obstacles.
Along with cross-curric-
ular studies that would
bring nutrition and health
instruction into other sub-
ject areas, Martin County
is also considering making
recess more structured so
it will count toward the 2
1/2 hours of phys ed
required per week, Ms.
Brennan said.
Elaine Harmon, the
physical education leader
for the St. Lucie County
School District, has mixed
feelings about the bill.
"I think that everyone in
America needs more activ-
ity time, especially our
children with the obesity
issue," she said. "But I wish
they had put some money
behind the bill. The
schools are going to need
money to hire more teach-
ers."
Ms. Harmon, a K-5 phys
ed teacher at West Gate K-
8 School in Port St. Lucie
" and sixth- through eighth-
, grade volleyball and soc-
cer coach, has been a RE.
. teacher for 23 years.
.. She said she sees more
obese children in the
schools now than she did
two decades ago.
"The world is a more'
dangerous place, and kids
don't play outside as much
as they used to," Ms. Har-
mon said. "Parents are
working more. That gives
kids less time for physical
S activity."
The result, she said, has
been an influx of juvenile
diabetes and overweight
youth.
She tells students being
out of shape is like having
Sthe flu.
S "You feel weak and
tired," she said. "Your
whole body functions bet-
ter when you're in better
shape. Strong mind,
strong body."
In addition to the
increased physical educa-
tion during school hours,
Ms. Harmon said West
Gate is trying to hold more
extracurricular activities
: beginning next year, some
of which will even include
parents.
"The national recom-
mendation is for at least 20
minutes of active activity a
day no matter what age
you are," she said. "Every-
one needs activity."
That includes older stu-
dents. The state encour-
ages middle and high
schools to provide up to 3-
3/4 hours of physical edu-
cation weekly. Governor
Charlie Crist said he hopes
to have gym class required
through 12th grade by
2012.
"Every child should have
physical activity every day
\ because it will help
increase the chances of a
choosing a healthy
lifestyle in years to come,"
the governor said in a
press release May 17.
"With childhood obesity
on the rise, it is critical that
we find ways to help chil-
dren adopt healthy
habits."

Family wants to get message out that


pets unattended in cars can be fatal


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


STUART Fudge was a
black lab who loved to ride
in the car and went to
work each day with his
owner.
But one day when the
owner's morning routine
was changed, Fudge, the
beloved pet of a Martin
County family, was acci-
dentally left in the car too
long and died of heat
stroke.
Through their tragedy
the family, who wishes to
remain anonymous,
wants to warn others of
the dangers of leaving pets


in an unattended car. They
have allowed their story to
be told by the Humane
Society of the Treasure
Coast in a newsletter that
was mailed to Humane
Society donors and adop-
tive families the week of
May 21. Their hope is that
their tragedy will help pre-
vent such a heart-wrench-
ing event to happen to
anyone else.
According to Amy Chris-
tensen, community out-
reach director for the
Humane Society, area vet-
erinarians treat approxi-
mately 35 heat-stricken
dogs a year. Many do not
survive.


Tragically, such an event
is preventable, if pet-own-
ers keep in mind several
facts.
"People don't realize
that even on a moderately
warm day, the interior of a
car exceeds 90 degrees in
the shade. Parked in the
sun, it can reach 160
degrees," said Ms. Chris-
tensen.
"When the outside tem-
perature is in the 80s, it
can take just minutes (to
get that hot)," she said.
Ms. Christensen said
when the inside tempera-
ture of the car reaches 110
degrees, pets can suffer
heat stroke and brain and


organ damage within 15
minutes. And many times,
the owners are not pur-
posely being irresponsi-
ble.
"It can happen to any-
body," she said. "You run
into the dry cleaners and
think it's only going to take
two minutes, and then
you run into a neighbor
and two minutes turns
into 10. And that's all. it
takes."
Opening the window in
the car is not the solution,
said Ms. Christensen.
"If you leave the win-
dows open, you are invit-

List of six candidates sent to governor
for circuit judge position

Eighteen applicants applied for an open circuit judge
position for the 19th Judicial Circuit and were inter-
viewed by a judicial nominating committee on May 16.
On May 18, the 19th Circuit Judicial Nominating Com-
mission recommended six of the applicants by sending
their names to Gov. Charlie Crist for consideration. This
will be the first time Gov. Crist names a judge for the 19th
circuit.
The judicial position became available after the retire-
ment of Judge Scott Kenney. The 19th Circuit includes St.
Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee and Indian River Counties.
The six finalists are attorneys Charles Anthony
Schwab, Laurie A. Ehler, Jason Berger, Pamela J. Roe-
buck, E Shields McManus and Deborah Marie Hooker.

CVS Pharmacies hit by thefts

On May 16, Stuart police were called to CVS Pharmacy
at 2651 N. Federal Highway in response to a report that
three people allegedly stole items and then returned to
the same store to attempt a refund of the items in
exchange for gift cards.
Charged with retail theft and fraudulent refunding
were Port St. Lucie residents Maria Lena Lopresti, 25,
1531 Royal Green Circle; Emanuela Lopresti, 30, 1338
LaHaven Court; and Mariano Cassata, 69,1490 S.E. Lake-
wood Circle.
The trio was booked into the Martin County Jail with a
bail for each set at $1,150.
The next day, Stuart police again responded to a CVS
call, this one at 2284 S. Federal Highway, after two
women allegedly attempted to distract store employees
and management by requesting assistance and job
applications while working together to shoplift store
merchandise worth $305.
Charged with grand theft in the scheme were Jordon
Locacio, 22, 1676 Grenacres Circle and Rachel Diane
Koch, 21, 928 East 5th St., Stuart.
Both were booked into Martin County Jail on $2,500
bonds.

Victim chases car burglar

As a customer walked out of the Washington Mutual
Bank at 2280 S. Federal Highway in Stuart, she confront-
ed a car burglar who was smashing the driver's side win-
dow of her car.
The suspect, described as a black male wearing a black
hooded sweatshirt and dark shorts, was reaching inside
the victim's car as she approached. He got away with $35.

three-year terms.
Kevin Sharkey, Molly's
father, kriew his six-year
term would expire in April.
However, he believed
Molly's mother, Debby,
would thereafter assume
his position on the board
for the next six years.
Bill Rolo, president of the
board of directors, howev-
er, has a different recollec-
tion.
"Mr. Sharkey nominated
his daughter, Jessica
McClain, for the board, cit-
ing the family's need to
take a break from serving,"
said Mr. Rolo.
"After careful review by
the board, it was deter-
mined a conflict of interest
would be created if Jessica
were to serve on the board,
due to her affiliation in a
fundraising capacity for
Martin Memorial Founda-
tion," he said.
Mr. Sharkey said he was
shocked when he was
called into a room 20 min-
utes before the regular
board meeting in March.
Present were Mr. Rolo,
Judy Cruz, executive direc-
tor, and board member
Lorraine Wintercorn.
"A list was shoved in
front of me, listing new
board members. At the
bottom, it said 'advisory
position,' and it had my
name on it," said Mr.
Sharkey.
"I asked, 'What is an
advisory position?' and
was told it allowed you to
come to meetings, but you
can't vote," he said.
"There is no advisory
council, it's something
they made up," said Mr.
Sharkey. "There is no one
else on that committee, so
who would I be advising?"
When contacted about
this, Mr. Rolo said, "The
advisory council is not
new. We have one past
board member who has
served in this capacity for
the last four years. In fact,
Molly's House has been
seeking additional mem-
bers of the community
who may wish to serve on


RUBIES

N-
co)


Everyone knows that
rubies are the highest
valued precious red
gem. One reason is that
they have gone hand in
hand with love and pas-
sion for thousands of
years.
Rubies claim this popu-
larity for many reasons.
They are extremely
durable having a hard-
ness of 9 on the hard-
ness scale (diamond is
a 10). they are also
extremely rare. A superi-
or gem quality blood red
rubie often times fetch
higher prices than dia-
monds.
another interesting thing
about rubies is that they
are the same basic
material as a sapphire.
Many people are not
aware that rubies come
n all the colors of the
rainbow, in fact a sap-
phire is the same com-
position as a ruby, they
are both corundum!
Another thing nice about
ruby is that it is also
makes a fabulous gem-
stone for a man's ring.
It's color is attractive but
ruby's durability is
exceptional. The next
time you want to add a
little romance in your
life, think ruby.

the advisory council. This
was discussed at our
strategic planning session
last year."
Mr. Sharkey said when
he asked why his wife was
not being placed in the
board position that
opened when his tenure
ended, he was told by Mr.
Rolo they had more quali-
fied people.
"I asked who could be
more qualified than
Molly's mother?" said Mr.
Sharkey.
According to the min-
utes from the board of,
directors' meeting on
March 20, five people were
recommended for the new
board, including Steve
Erlanger, publisher of
Hometown News.
The nominating com-
mittee's recommendation
for the new slate of direc-
tors did not include a
member of the Sharkey
family. The recommenda-
tions were accepted, sec-
onded and passed, by a
vote of 10 to three.
Three of the 10 votes for
the new board members
were submitted by proxy.
An additional two board
members were absent and
did not vote.
Mr. Sharkey was one of
the three who voted
against the new recom-
mendations for board
members.
"I found out later that
the board members who
voted by proxy were pre-
sented a slate of possible
new board members, but
they didn't understand if
they approved those mem-
bers it would mean a
Sharkey family member
would not be on," said Mr.
Sharkey. "So between
those proxy votes and the
executive board members,
there were enough to keep
us off."
On May 17, a local news-
paper printed a paid
advertisement from the
Sharkey family, objecting
to the fact that no member
of Molly's family would,
remain on the board of
directors of Molly's House.
In response, Mr. Rolo,
who has hired the Jensen
Beach public relations
firm of Yates & Associates,
released a statement that
reads, in part, "It is impor-
tant for any organization's
future that the baton be
passed from one genera-
tion of leadership to
another. To maintain
Molly's legacy, Molly's
House board of directors
has selected Kevin Sharkey
to head our advisory coun-
cil. This council is crucial
to the future of Molly's
House. Kevin Sharkey, at
this time, has not respond-
ed to join this leadership
role. We urge him to main-
tain the heritage."
When contacted about
this statement, Mr.
Sharkey, who said he was
never offered the position
of head of the council,
said, "It is nothing but a
political move, and it will
not allow us the opportu-
nity to vote on anything.
We want to continue the
agreement that there
would always be a family
member of Molly's on the
board," he said.
Mr. Rolo said the board
cannot address unwritten
understandings, and
added: "The function of
the advisory council is not
to advise council mem-
bers. The advisory council
is to provide guidance and
insight to the overall board
of directors."

Medical team visits Tanzania on


a mission of surgery and prayer


B RITA HART
Staff writer

STUART The 16-
member medical team left
Martin County for Tanza-
nia on April 20. Their two-
week mission to eastern
Africa was to perform
heart valve replacements
on residents and to teach
local doctors how to per-
form the surgeries them-
selves.
They accomplished what
they set out to do and left
patients behind who might
otherwise have died.
And in the process, they
themselves grew in faith,
became more grateful for
what they have been given,
and ended up more
enriched because they
themselves were touched
by the Tanzanians.
The group was organ-
ized by Dr. Duane Cook, a
cardiothoracic surgeon for
the Ocala Heart Institute.
Dr. Cook is frequently
found at Frances Langford
Heart Institute, perform-
ing surgeries until a per-


manent surgeon is on
board later this year.
The Ocala Heart Insti-
tute's "Heart for the World"
foundation was formed to
educate, train and provide
medical care in foreign
countries. According to
OCHI's Web site, "Per-
formed in lovb as a min-
istry in service to God,
these endeavors are meant
to change lives both physi-
cally and spiritually."
Dale Ruby is a cardiac
perfusionist at Frances
Langford Heart Institute,
who runs the heart-lung
machine during open-
heart surgeries.
Six years ago, Dr. Ruby
went on his first mission to
China with the Ocala Heart
Institute. In all, he's been
to China twice and to
Mongolia three times on
these missions.
"Our goal is to assist sur-
geons and other medical
specialists on how to con-
tinue doing the surgery,
introduce them to tech-
niques we use in America
and to improve their out-


comes," said Dr. Ruby.
Dr. Ruby said that the
American team is used to
having top-notch equip-
ment at their disposal, but
that is not the case in other
countries.
"It's not uncommon to
lose power in developing
countries during surgery.
It's very difficult for doc-
tors to get better outcomes
because of these situa-
tions," he said.
When the team arrived
in Tanzania, approximate-
ly 20 patients were poten-
tial candidates for surgery.
Unfortunately, because
several had underlying
medical conditions that
had to be addressed before
they could undergo sur-
gery, the team was only
able to operate on nine
during their stay.
"We were operating on
19 and 20-year-old
patients who had rheu-
matic heart disease, dam-
aging their heart valves.
When you fix that valve,

"CAR DEALERS


SMARTEN UP"

YOUR CUSTOMERS ALREADY HAVE.

EARL STEWART sTEAR

SAn Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

I Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


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


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.
561*844*3461
We need to add
to our team In all
departments...
sales, service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.


Virtually every car dealer of educi
In Florida adds a charge to
Ihe price of cars he sells, a sophistic
'dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep' fee ranging from $500 much hig
lo 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
cor rec.t.


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the


stomers'
ions, level
- -- -- I


c
h


dealer fee, but because I was
able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.


tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
Ition are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart EarlStewart Toyota

Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(772) 465-5504
or e-mail Rants-N-Raves@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.

More than just a clothesline

I agree with the ranter who wants to bring back the
clothesline.
It's all true about the energy and the environmental
factor. I personally loathe homeowners associations
and all their stupid rules. I will never live in a commu-
nity that has one.
However, there is one other factor that the ranter for-
got about. The time it takes to hang the clothes.
Until I read this rant, I had forgotten about all the
hours my mom and I spent here in Florida out at the
clothesline.
I forgot how much fun it was to hang out with my
mom, and the little line she set up for me and my
clothes next to the "family line."
I forgot about how we kept our flip-flops there by the
door so we didn't burn our feet on the white concrete
stones out by the line in the summer months.
I remember all the time it took for Mom and I to
rewash the clothes the birds had pooped on, and how
funny we thought it was.
Then there was all the time it took to rewash the
clothes that the family Schnauzer, Toby, ripped off the
line and dragged through the dirt. That, I thought, was
the funniest thing of all!
I remember how much fun it all was before school
became a career, and before video games kept kids
incarcerated in their rooms.
The clothesline was not only a chore; it was a way of
life, and a great way to bond with the kids.
Now I am all grown up and have two little ones of my
own.
Thanks for reminding me Mr. or Mrs. Ranter about
how much fun it was back then when we took it slow,
and hung out at the clothesline.
Now if you'll excuse me, I am going to the store to get
stuff to put up a clothesline.
Do they still sell that stuff anymore?

Obese people are people

I am writing in response to the rant in which some-
one wrote about all medical facilities hiring unappeal-
ing, obese people.
You wonder why kids do not listen, and continue to
make fun of, pick on, and ridicule other kids and
adults. It is no wonder, when you hear, or read, com-
ments like the above-mentioned rant from so-called
educated and knowledgeable people.
The person who thought, never mind, wrote this stu-
pid comment must be happy in his or her .fantasy life,
where all people are thin and very appealing to look at.
The real world is made up of all kinds of people, thin,
fat, short, tall, etc. Many overweight people are very
healthy. They are people, too.
- Instead of looking at their bodies, try looking at their
faces. Smile at them. Talk to them. Maybe then you
will realize they are not so unappealing to look at and
to know.
Get on with your life.

Can we afford open borders
and illegal immigration

When is this country going to wake up?
The Congress and the administration are going pass
a bill for immigration again next week.
I truly wonder just how much but business pays to
keep cheap labor coming. Pardon my error, this labor
really isn't cheap. It costs trillions of dollars each year.
This is in medical and other goods and services. This
doesn't take into account the fact that the death rate of
American citizens here in the U.S. is greater than in Iraq.
Nothing is really being done, and I am afraid that we
shall be faced with more situations such as the one that
nearly occurred in Fort Dix.
It is hard to say how many soldiers might have gotten
killed. Lucky that a young man spotted what the copies
he was asked to make were about, and notified the
authorities.
My point in writing this rant is simply that Washing-
ton is looking at the problem from a different prospec-
tive. If we don't call, or fax our senators and tell them
that enough is enough, I think that the good old U.S. of
A. is in deep trouble. '

Anyone could do it

In regards to the rant about paramedics being sec-
ond-class citizens, if firefighters are getting a raise,
then the paramedics also should be getting a raise.
But as far as getting paid when you call in sick, you
'shouldn't.
You should use a vacation day instead.
Most people don't get paid when they call in sick. I
don't see why you should.
As far as being duel certified, you should be. It
would save the county a ton of money.
Like firefighters, you are getting paid while you
sleep, and only work three days a week.
Most of you have side jobs for extra money, because
you can only play so much ping-pong while you are at


work.
As for sleepless nights, I think they are few and far
between in a county like Indian River.
You say not everyone could do your job. Well, with
the proper training, anyone could. The same goes for
my job. You could not do it, but with the proper train-
ing, you could.
So let's get with the duel certification, and let's save
the county a ton of money.

Daylight savings time

In a recent rant, the comment was made that the
USA is the only one to change the clocks.
That ranter may be right about his thinking, but the
USA is not the only major nation that changes its
clocks.
Germany, and as far as know all of-Europe, and
maybe more, also changes its clocks. .,
It is a big inconvenience. I sure wish all of them-
could agree to change them, and stay with the summer
time.

Democrats worry this voter

Where is all the outcry from Pelosi, Reid and the
Democrats on the high gas prices?
I think they ought to have another one of their use-
less investigations as to why and what can be done
about them.
In my opinion, the people in this coomiry wilflbe-
happy to vote John McCain, for president and the
Republicans again.
He will make us all proud and worry-free.
With the Democrats controlling Congress, I am cer-
tainly not proud nor am I worry-free about the terror-
ism or anything else they do or don't do.

Letters


Molly's House
thanks you

I want to take this time to thank everyone for his or her
calls, e-mails, and concerns regarding Molly's House.
Many of Molly's friends and supporters are upset and
angry over rumors and misinformation being distrib-
uted about Molly's House, and the Sharkey family
involvement in this wonderful house.
While I cannot address who is circulating this infor-
mation and for what reason, I do want to address the
issue of truth.
The first truth is there will be no change in the name of


Molly's House. This rumor must be halted in its tracks.
Secondly, our goal has never been to remove the
Sharkey family from Molly's House.
When Mr. Sharkey requested he and his wife take a
break from serving on our board, we felt it very impor-
tant to maintain a Sharkey presence in Molly's House.
Although Mr. Sharkey nominated his daughter, Jessi-
ca, to serve on the board,.we felt this created a conflict of
interest due to her fundraising role with the Martin
Memorial Foundation.
To maintain a Sharkey presence in Molly's House, Mr.
Sharkey has been offered a position on our advisory
council.
The advisory council can play a critical role in making


sure the memories of Molly last forever in her house.
We sincerely hope Mr. Sharkey accepts this position
during his family's requested break from serving the
board of directors.
Please continue to share your thoughts with me, and
our entire board of directors.
It is shameful that rumors and misinformation are
harming Molly's House and its wonderful mission. How-
ever, by bringing those rumors and misinformation to
our immediate attention, we can respond with truth and
correct information so Molly's mission can continue.

Bill Rolo
President, Board of Directors Molly's House

Get ready to put up that clothesline

Florida Solar Rights Law: Florida Statute-Section
163.04 1. ...Prohibiting the installation of solar col-
lectors, clotheslines, or other energy devices based
on renewable resources is expressly prohibited.
While a homeowner cannot be, prevented from
installing a solar energy system, certain restrictions
may be imposed without violating the law.
For example, the homeowner's association can
determine the location of the clothesline, such as
only behind the residence so as not to be obtrusive or
seen from the road.
A corner lot would require a fence or high shrubs in
this case.
They could also require that the line be retractable
when not in use.
4. ...This section shall not apply to patio railings in
condominiums, cooperatives, or apartments.
Solar collection systems, such as panels for heating
a pool have specific requirements and Section 163.04
does not waive the need for association approval if it
is required by the governing documents.
This is the law in a nutshell.
Have fun pursuing it through your association.

Back Bush, not Hillary

This it to respond to the readerasking why anyone
would want Bush back as president after 2008.
He's our only safe bet to make sure we can wake up
each morning and not worry about another Sept. 11.
Personally, I want to wake up to SportsCenter
instead of having to read the Quran. That's what will
happen, mark my words, if Hillary gets in.

Takes Bush supporters to task

To "Dems not going to win in '08," I would like you to
point to one single fact that gives any. credibility to your
claim that this current surge "may work."
You, and people like you, are the reason we are in the situ-
ation we are in the first place.
People like you have failed to question; you've followed
our "brave leader," like sheep throughout this entire catas-
trophe.
But hey, since we were "greeted as liberators," and since
the "mission was accomplished" for some time now, and
because the "insurgency is in its last throws," keep (toeing)
the line, and smile and nod whenever "W" opens his mouth
since it's worked so well so far.

Same-sex marriage not a legal right

In response to "Republicans don't protect the rights of
all," the question is asked "how is denying (my) right to
marry my same sex-partner protecting anybody's rights?"
Well, rights are pretty precious.


Our ancestors fought and died to protect and preserve
them and they shouldn't be taken lightly.
As I see it, there are really two issues here.
The first is "what exactly are rights?
There are two types of rights those given by God, and
those given by man.
Putting aside the clear scriptural admonition against
same-sex sexual involvement, the fact is a person (doesn't)
have a "legal" right to marry a same sex partner, i.e. there
are a number of rights granted to U.S. citizens by the Con-
stitution, but marrying a same-sex, partner is not one of
them.
Second, the "equal protection clause" mentioned does
not "provide equality" in any and every situation. In fact, it
is designed to provide only equal protection in the applica-
tion of a given law in similar conditions or circumstances.
Same sex couples are not in a similar or same circum-
stance. They are two people of the same sex and that's a
pretty different condition/circumstance.
As the purpose of marriage is gender-dependent by defi-
nition, same-sex couples are in a different category/class in
this case than heterosexual couples with respect to the
application of marriage law.
There's no protection for a "right" for same-sex mar-
riages.

Let's have equal taxes for everybody

Our politicians insist on treating me as a second class cit-
izen.
My condo is considered a rental unit and as such there is
no limit on taxes levied on it.
My tax on this unit has gone up 280 percent in a three-
year period.
The average homeowner has a 3 percent cap on any tax
increase and a $25,000 homestead exemption, but because
I don't live on site, my property is classified differently and I
am penalized.
All property, whether a rental unit or a home, should be
taxed equally.
Our taxes should be rolled back to 2003 rates and all
property fall under the 3 percent tax cap.
The majority of voters are homeowners and will never
support an equal tax structure.
I don't blame them.
My resentment is with the politicians who created this
inequity and don't have the courage to correct it They are
afraid of a voter backlash if they try to fix the problem. So
they will continue to aggravate the issue by giving an addi-
tional $25,000 homestead exemption to insure the future
support of the majority (and their jobs).
Don't treat me any differently from the rest of our citi-
zens. Tax me the same as everyone else with the
same rules as everyone else.
Editor's note: The 3 percent caps on property
assessments are part of the 1992 Save our Homes
amendment to the Florida Constitution, which was
proposed and approved by voters.

there is no reason why they
can't go on and live a per-
fectly normal life," said Dr.
Ruby.
Dr. Ruby said that lan-
guage was a constant barrier
for the team in their
attempts to communicate
with patients and their fami-
lies. However, the team
found a way to communi-
cate in other ways.
"In my experience, it's
been a love of life and love of
God that transcends any
language barrier," said Dr.
Ruby. "When you look a
patient in the eye before sur-
gery, they know you are
there to save their life."
Dr. Ruby was touched by
the reaction of the families
of the patients, once the sur-
geries were over.
"When you come out of
the operating room, the
people know who you are
and you give them a
'thumb's up' and they start
crying and hug you. To me,
you can't put a price on
that," he said.
Mariela Zuluaga, a cardiac
nurse at Frances Langford
Heart Center, was with the
team in Tanzania on her first
mission.
"It is so hard to describe,"
said Mrs. Zuluaga. "The
patients were very apprecia-
tive and responded so well.
One called in a translator
who spoke Swahili. She
wanted to thank us because

Rants


the day before her surgery,
she couldn't even walk, she
would get so out of breath.
One day after surgery, she
was able to get out of her
chair and walk."
Mrs. Zuluaga is from
Columbia and has lived in
the United States for 13
years, working at Martin
Memorial for 12 of them.
"I grew up in another
country and hoped one day
to return to others what I
received when I came here,"
she said.
Like Mrs. Zuluaga, Dr.
Ruby hopes to have the
chance to go on another
mission with Dr. Cook.
"I get so much out of this,"
said Dr. Ruby. "The people in
Tanzania are so poor, but
they seem happy, and I think
there is a lesson to be
learned there. We learn
about a lot of things that
ultimately are not impor-
tant. It's just a joy to be with
them. I visited some of the
villages to see how they live
and imagine what their life
is like. Even if they don't
have material possessions,
they seem happy," he said.
Dr. Ruby said the life span
of the Tanzanian people is
short, averaging just 42
years.
"Our priorities are giving
people hope for a better
future," he said.
The Martin Memorial
heart team kept a blog while
in Tanzania which may be
viewed atwww.mmhs.com.


From page A7
Shortening election times has merit
I totally agree with the person who is appalled by the
length of time that candidates for public office (presi-
dent) will have before the election.
After he, or she, states the proposed platform and
plans of action and how the plans will be implement-
ed, what can they say for the next 16 months?
Years ago, I heard that in Australia a person could
not announce his candidacy for office prior to three
months before election date. This may be just a rumor,
but it makes good sense.
However, "it ain't going to happen."
The TV companies and the magazines and other
media are not going to let any one kill the goose that
lays golden eggs or stop the flow of big green money.
Editor's note: According to
www.australianpolitics.com, nominations for federal
elections takes place between 10 to 37 days after the
House of Representatives is dissolved. The polling day
takes place within 33 to 68 days after the dissolving of
the House. The new House convenes no later than 140
days after it was initially dissolved

Center
From page Al
do, President of Lucido &
Associates. "It's Stuart's
Central Park."
Lucido & Associates, a
Stuart landscape archi-
tectural firm, has drawn
up the plans to imple-
ment the group's overall
vision for the site.
"The Martin County
Audubon organizers want
to bring this area back to
its natural state," said Mr.
Lucido. "They needed an
organizer, they had the
idea but nothing on paper
so we helped them by cre-
ating a master plan."
The master plan has
been completed, but as
new concerns or com-
ments arise, changes are


expected.
"We started the imple-
mentation of the first
phase of the project," said
Mr. Lucido. "We've creat-
ed better footpaths, put
in brick pavers, fashioned
sidewalks, set up irriga-
tion and added a parking
lot."
Lucido & Associates is
not the only group, which
worked on this initiative
on a pro bono basis.
Other Martin County
companies which con-
tributed include Con-
cepts & Greenery, who
dedicated landscape and
irrigation, T-Coast Pavers,
which constructed all the
pavers and sidewalks,
Eddie Huggins, who dedi-
cated the parking areas,
and numerous volunteers
and board members who


help bring the project to
fruition.
"Everyone has been
working together to reach
this point and our next
effort is to remove the
hurricane damaged vege-
tation and non-native
pest plants," said Mr.
Braun. "We'll also be cre-
ating a flat house where
we grow native foliage to
replant back into the
area."
Shortly thereafter, the
hope is to create an
enhanced network of
paths or nature trails
with instructive signage
and kiosks that will edu-
cate the public about
wildlife.
"There is more and
more interest in conser-
vation philosophy and tb
see things like nesting


bald eagles and endan-
gered species thriving in
the middle of a city. I
believe this will give peo-
ple not only a sanctuary
but the opportunity to
learn about their environ-
ment," said Mr. Braun.
The center will also
house a museum with
interactive kiosks, new
benches, expanded park-
ing and a newly redevel-
oped education center.
"We are excited to be
able to offer more pro-
grams and classroom pre-


sentations because of the
increased space," said
Nathalie Brown,
Education Chair for the
Audubon of Martin Coun-
ty.
A fundraising campaign
is expected to start in the
fall and each completed
phase will be determined
by how much is raised.
Although not resolute,
Braun said the estimated
cost could be somewhere
in the millions.
"It's a place for chil-
dren, adults, tourists and


anyone to learn about the
native environment of
Florida," said Mr. Lucido.
"It's my hope that 60 or
100 years from now there
will be a place for people
to visit and remember
how things used to be
before it was all devel-
oped."
The Possum Long

Premier Rollout Awnings are designed for

Trip for a switch

When David Greaves

to Florida from Massa-
chusettes and Connecti-
cut respectively, they'
dreamed of relaxing days
in the Florida sun.
That all changed when

engineer and fire protec-
tion engineer, asked his
friend to drive to Boyton
Beach with him for a spe-
cial electrical switch he
needed to install on an
awning he purchased.
During that trip, the
men learned that the sell-
er of the switch held the
license for that product
line, and that they both
seemed very capable of
installing the switch on
their own.
"We were on a mission
to buy a switch, and we
came back with the
licensing rights," said Mr.
Greaves.
A short time later, the
two friends opened Pre-
mier Rollout Awnings of


the Treasure Coast, the
only dealer in Martin, St.
Lucie and Indian River
counties that offers the
Buzzman Retractable
Rollout Awning.
With hurricane season
just a week away,
installing awnings may be
of concern to some con-
sumers. However, Premier
Rollout Awnings offer
models designed for
heavy rains and winds up
to 150 miles per hour.
Therefore, the awnings do
not have to be fully
removed from a building
in the event of a hurri-
cane.
In addition, Premier
Rollout Awnings offers the

Automatic Awning Sys-
tem, an optional wind

peller sensor and digital
electronics that automati-
cally retracts the awning
at the first gust of high
wind.
"We offer the best prod-
uct on the market and we
are still competitively
priced," said Mr. Greaves.
The partners frequently
run special promotions
for awnings and, once
contacted by a customer,
will make visits to the
home within four days or
less. Although all mechan-
ical parts of the awning
are kept in stock, the
awning fabrics available
are of such a wide variety
in sizes and colors 380 in
all that they are special
ordered by the customer.
Even so, installation of
the complete awning is
done within four weeks of
the date of the order.
"Our awnings are cus-
tom-built by the cus-
tomers," said Mr. Hart-
nett. "We don't use a
cookie cutter
approach."

Awnings is a direct
importer of retractable
awnings from Germany.
The company acts as dis-

Getting to the Taj Mahal is half the fun


Afew weeks ago, I
returned from my
sixth trip to India.
This time I was driving
through the peaceful
Himalayan regions of
Darjeeling, Sikkim,
Kangra and Dharamsala,
home of the Dalai Lama.
You might actually
think you were in
Switzerland because this
part of India is so calm
and pristine.
Driving is slow and
measured on the winding
mountain roads, where
passing on a curve is the
norm.
As you leave the
Himalayas and head
south towards the cities
however, everything
intensifies.
People drive three deep,
horns blare and the roads
are jammed once again.
Having plunged back
into India's frenetic pace,
I began to think about
my favorite road in all of
India.
It is the two-lane
"highway" that takes us
from Jaipur to Agra to see
the Taj Mahal.
The Taj, built by Shah
Jahan as a mausoleum
for his beloved wife, is a
sightto behold.
When I think of it
though, I always chuckle
because I know that
getting there is more
than half the fun.
Most people take the
train or drive from New
Delhi to Agra to see it.
However some people,
like me, prefer driving
from the city of Jaipur in
the Thar Desert. Typical-
ly, we spend two or three
days touring Rajasthan's
"pink city" first.
Jaipur is brimming with
colorful temples, ornate
palaces, painted ele-
phants to ride and
camels to use on treks
through the desert.
I adore it, and it's
always hard to leave, but
eventually it's time to
head to Agra.
Some people will drive
to Rathambore National
Park for safari first, in
hopes of seeing the
elusive tiger.
I've done that before
and it's fun, but I prefer
the direct route that
takes about 4-5 hours.
This two-lane road is a
never-ending circus of
motorbikes, camels,
pedestrians, elephants,
cars, huge decorated
TATA trucks (often
broken down), buses,
religious pilgrims,
speeding cars and danc-
ing bears (I'm not kid-
ding).
You'll see women
working in the fields in
their spotless, fluores-
cent-colored saris, men
smoking in the cafes and
children playing every-
where.
It is a feast for the eyes
and to me, this is India!
About half way through,
you'll pass Bharatpur


"Driving is slow and measured on the wind-
ing mountain roads, where passing on a curve
is the norm."

Bird Sanctuary and if you
have the time, it's worth a
stop.
I've only been there
once, but they claim
during the winter
months the influx of
migrating birds from
Russia, Mongolia and
parts of Asia is amazing.
If you feel so inclined,
you can stay overnight in
the sanctuary because
there is decent lodging.
Another sight to see as
you drive closer to Agra is
the Mughal ghost city of
Fatehpur Sikri.
Emperor Akbar built
the city in 1569, as a
place of good fortune.
Sadly, he abandoned it
.14 years later.
If you have an hour or
two to explore, you'll be
amazed at the beauty
and grandeur of its red
sandstone architecture
and ornate designs.
Now as you get closer to
Agra, the traffic is getting
worse and the streets are
narrowing.
That means you've just
entered Agra's vast

marketplace, so expect to
proceed at a snail's pace.
This is a typical, teem-
ing Indian market, with
everything under the sun
sold there.
This is when you know
you've seen the "real"
India.
After many blocks, you
start to emerge from the
market and see signs for
the hotels.
You think you're almost
there, but no, the traffic
suddenly grinds to a halt
again.
A herd of India's sacred
cows decide to cross the
road and everybody
absolutely must stop for
them. They take their
time and some even lie
down, forcing drivers to
inch around them. Horns
beep, but it doesn't
matter.
They're not budging.
So, feeling tired and
dusty you wait, but isn't
this the lesson of
patience you came to
India to learn anyway?
Finally you get around
the herd and head down
a street that doesn't look
like a place for deluxe
hotels. All of a sudden,
you see them and, even
better, off in the distance
you see the first glimmer
of the dome of the Taj
Mahal.
It's bathed in the soft
pink light of the setting
sun and it's magnificent.
Tomorrow you'll be


there at dawn, to see this
true marvel of the
ancient world.
However challenging
the trip was to get there,
you'll know it was worth
it and hopefully more
than half the fun besides!

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 geared to 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 hurri-
cane season," said Mike
Lyons, meteorologist for
television station WPBF'
25 in Palm Beach. "People


walk away with the knowl-
edge of what to do before,.
during and after a hurri-
cane and how to best pre-
pare."
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 director
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
blo6d 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.

Hurricane season is back; prepare your kids


It's hard to believe we
are talking about
hurricanes again.
While last year was a
calm one, and we all
hope this coming one will
be too, the last few years
should have taught all of
us that we need to be
better prepared in our
own homes and take
responsibility for ensur-
ing that we have supplies
to get us through, at the
very least, a few days
without power.
Thear are many free
guides for hurricane
preparedness available,
so I thought I would
focus on kids and how
hurricanes and other
disasters affect them.
After Hurricane Katrina,
we were all shocked to
discover how vulnerable
children are in a disaster,
both physically and
emotionally.
We were dismayed at
pictures of parents
frantically searching for
children from whom they
were separated.
Now is a good time to
sew name tapes in the
clothing of young chil-
dren, including the name
and number of a contact
person outside of the
area. That way, if phone
service is disrupted, a
family member or friend
can take the call and
know that the child is
safe.
Dr. Michael Haney,
division director for
prevention and interven-
tion in the Florida
Department of Health,
offers suggestions for
creating a family disaster
plan and handling the
stress a disaster, such as a
hurricane, places on
families and children.
Children fear they will
be separated from their


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
family or left alone, that
the event will recur, or
that someone will be hurt
or injured.
Try to allay fears while
remaining realistic.
"You can never fully
prepare for a natural
disaster and you don't
want to instill a height-
ened sense of anxiety,"
said Dr. Hanrey. "The key
is good communication
with your kids. If you see
something on the news,
talk with them about how
they feel and how they
think others are feeling.
Talk about what you
would do if something
happened in your com-
munity and reassure


them that you will do
everything you can to
keep them safe."
The Department of
Health recommends
assembling a kit to pass
the time, whether you
evacuate your home or
remain.
Following is a list of
what it could include.
* A few favorite books,
crayons and paper.
* Puzzles, a board game,
a deck of cards.
* Two favorite small
toys, dolls or action
figures or stuffed ani-
mals.
* A favorite blanket and
pillow.
* Photos of family and
pets.
Other special items that
will be a comfort.
Both the DOH arid the
Florida Institute for
Family Involvement,
which helps families with
special needs children,
suggest keeping all of a
child's important infor-
mation together, includ-
ing a photo, birth certifi-
cate, medical and
immunization record, list
of medications and
contact information.


Perhaps this is some-
thing you and your
children can do together,
making a booklet for each
child that they can
decorate and personalize.
Store each one in a
waterproof, zipper-lock
bag and put it with your
hurricane kit so you won't
forget to take it. If your
child takes medication,
make sure you have at
least several weeks of
medicine.
It is also a good idea to
limit access to television

Maple syrup is healthier than corn syrup


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Hope you had
a good week.,
When a reader ques-
tioned why jarred walnuts
in syrup contained two
kinds of corn syrup it
peaked my interest.
Corn syrup, which is
made from corn is a
simple sugar.
High fructose corn syrup
is corn syrup that has been
chemically altered and is
believed to be a contribut-
ing factor in obesity.
The walnuts or pecans in
syrup contained both and
were priced at more than
$2 for a 5-ounces jar -
that's smaller than a juice
glass.
When I requested a
recipe in a column, a
reader wrote that accord-
ing to an ice cream chain
her daughter worked for,
walnuts were added to
maple syrup.
My question was, "What
makes maple syrup
healthier? It's sweet so it
must be bad."
Research blew me away
as I'm sure it will you.
How silly to think that
something God made, if
used properly, could be
bad. Pure maple syrup


TnitMn60
WJBW ~AM10


contains potassium,
calcium, iron, magnesium,
thiamin, and B vitamins,
has the same amount of
calories as white sugar and
less than corn syrup.
I decided to put together
a recipe to pass on to you.
I remember a class trip I
took with my two young
sons to a maple sugar farm
in New Hampshire.
It was early spring and
the ground was still frozen
as we gingerly walked over
snow patches and frozen
roots. Taps (that held a
bucket) were nailed into
the tree bark and a clear
liquid dripped steadily
into the buckets.
The air was thick with
the smell of maple.
A long building housed a
trough of boiling sap.
As the water slowly
evaporated the sweet mist
covered us completely, we
were either in heaven or
nauseated; I was the
former and kissing my kids
was sweeter than ever.
I purchased my favorite,
maple sugar candy. Now
you know what to send me
if you're so inclined.
Enjoy, see you next week.

MORE MILES TO
THE GALLON
If you are serious about getting
better mileage, slow down. On
the highway, wind drag is
responsible for about a 10 per-
cent loss of economy for every 5
mph over 60 mph. Maintain con-
stant highway speed by using
cruise control. Also be mindful
that the air conditioner uses less
power at highway speeds than
the drag caused by open win-
dows (with the AC off). In addi-
tion, a drop of 6 pounds per
square inch (psi) under the rec-
ommended tire pressure can
increase fuel consumption by 5
percent. Changing the spark
plugs, fluids, and filters at the
recommended intervals helps
maintain engine efficiency. And,
ignoring the check-engine light
and failing to replace compo-
nents such as oxygen sensors
unnecessarily increases fuel
consumption.
There are many ways to improve
your current gas mileage, and
once attained, to maintain a good
gas mileage. At ADVANTAGE
ORD OF STUART, we know that
gas is a huge expense, and we
want to help you get the most
out of every dollar spent on fuel.
Fortunately the automotive
experts at 4000 S.E. Federal
Highway can help you make your
vehicle go farther on less gas.
Call 772.781.6540 today and
schedule an automotive consul-
tation. 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.

increase gasoline usage by four
percent.

Sogging on to the
Internet for the first
e can be very
confusing.
There is a whole new
vocabulary to learn and a
new set of guidelines to
follow.
If you don't follow these
guidelines, you may find
your e-mail box filled with
some very nasty messages
called "flames."
The guidelines I'm
speaking of are known as
"netiquette" and are an
important part of being
online.
For starters, let's go over
some basic e-mail etiquette.
E-mail messages are quick
to bang out and send
instantly with the click of a
button, this makes them
especially susceptible to bad
grammar, lousy spelling and
poor content.
Remember, humor and
sarcasm frequently get lost
in a medium such as e-mail
and can result in some
pretty rude messages being
sent.
Take time with your
message, and if you are
trying to be funny or
sarcastic, use a "smiley" or
"emoticon."
These are little faces
created with the characters
on the keyboard, and when
looked at with your head
tilted to the left, look like
little facial expressions.
For exarfiple:
:-) is your basic smiley,
:-(is the same guy only in
a bad mood,
;-) this emoticon is a wink,
and this
:'-(is crying.
Emoticons can be used to
put the emotion back into a

Compute This


message that's become
sterile and mechanical.
If you have a word proces-
sor or e-mail client with a
spell checker, use it to
compose your message.
Also, watch out for the
"caps lock" button on your
keyboard.
TYPING IN ALL CAPITAL
LETTERS IS CONSIDERED
SHOUTING AND SHOULD
BE AVOIDED!!
It can really get on peoples
nerves.
Remember that e-mail has
flaws.
Avoid foul language and
private or confidential
messages.
E-mail routers aren't
perfect and your message
may be accidentally sent to
Mrs. Smith's first-grade
Discovery class.
Never send anything you'd
be embarrassed for your
Mom to see.
A deleted message can
have copies archived all over
the place.
If you send an e-mail that
can get you in trouble,
Murphy's law will kick in
and you will usually long
after you thought the
message in question was

deleted.
These guidelines apply not
only to e-mail but even
more so, to "Usenet"
newsgroups.
Usenet newsgroups are an
area where netiquette is of
the utmost importance.
Newsgroups are like
online bulletin boards that
are read every day by
countless people all over the
world.
If you post a bad message
to one of these groups, you
may find yourself the center
of a "flame war" and your e-
mail box flooded with
hundreds of nasty respons-
es.
Use common sense when
posting messages onto
Usenet.
If you have a gut feeling
that maybe you shouldn't
post a message, don't.
Once you do, you can't
take it back and you may
offend thousands.
Don't fall for any of the
countless "get rich schemes"
on the net. They're there
and you'll know them when
you see them.
Another pitfall to avoid in
the newsgroups are "trolls."
These insidious little
messages are designed to
generate outrage and
flames.
Again, you'll recognize
them when you see them.
Don't respond. That will
only encourage them.
Take the time to find out
the rules of the road before
you try to communicate
with the masses.
Usually checking the
"FAQ" (Frequently Asked
Questions) before posting
messages is a safe bet and
can prevent your e-mail box
from overflowing with
flames.
All of these guidelines and
suggestions also apply to
chat rooms and instant
messenger programs.
People have been known to
post before they think
sometimes and figuring it's
"just a text message." It's
easy to forget about man-
ners and grammar.
It may be "just IM" but
remember there is some-
one on the other end.
Be nice!

if there is bad news being replayed
again and again.
If children or teens see scenes of
death and devastation, talk to
them in an age-appropriate
manner and watch for symptoms
of depression, such as sleep
disturbance, lack of interest in
activities or substance abuse.
For school-age children and
teens, suggest something they can
do to help, such as a lemonade


stand or a car wash to raise money
in school.
Now is a good time to watch for
sales on canned and packaged
goods, such as tuna, vegetables,
breakfast-bars and evaporated
milk ,or long-life milk such as
Parmalat.
Buying a little at a time, on sale,
will help your budget and help
you stay out of long lines.
If you have an infant or young
child, check with your doctor
before a change of diet.
When you finish a container of
soda or juice, rinse it out well and


fill it with water. Even if you don't
use it for drinking, have supplies
for personal hygiene and cleaning.

Along with a newsletter
sent out in the Humane
Society direct-mailing
campaign, a plastic "cling"
sticker will be included for
people to put on their car
windshield, as a reminder
not to leave their pets in
the car.
Ms. Christensen said if a
pet is left in the car and
suffers heat stroke, the
owner must get -the animal
to the veterinarian imme-
diately, to re-hydrate the
pet and make sure there is
no organ damage.
"The saddest part of all
of this is most. of these
deaths could be avoided,"
said Ms. Christensen.
"People say, 'But I was only
gone a few minutes.' But
that's all it takes."
Fudge's family knows
this all too well. In a state-
ment, the owner said, "My
hope is that rather than
judging our loss, let's pre-.
vent this tragedy from
happening to other fami-
lies. Our lives have been
changed as a result of our
loss and the void in our
home still remains."

St. Lucie

Ballet to

perform

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
The St. Lucie Ballet
opened its doors in 2004;
director Lydia Oquendo
and her husband Rogelio
Corrales, a full- time
dancer with Ballet Florida,
wished to provide tech-
nique training for young-
sters who wanted to pur-
sue a professional career
in dance. Students from
the school, with guest
artists, will perform "Cop-
pelia Suite" and other
works at the Sunrise The-
atre on June 3.
"Coppelia," a comic bal-
let set to music by Leo
Delibes, tells the story of a
mysterious magician and
toymaker, Dr. Coppelius,
who makes a life-sized
doll so fetching that a vil-
lage youth, Franz, falls in
love with it. He leaves his
love, Swanhilde, who
dresses as a doll to win
him back. It is a story of
mistaken identity that
ends happily with Franz
and Swanhilde reunited. It
is one of the best-loved
ballets, but it is in original
form, so the St. Lucie Bal-
let will not perform it in its
entirety.
"It's not the full ballet,"
Ms. Oquendo says. "It's
favorite selections. The
lead roles will be danced
by my husband, Rogelio,
with Leah Gallas, a princi-
pal ballerina at the Tulsa
Ballet, dancing Swanhilde.
"That will be followed
by fun choreography in
the style of jazz and hip
hop. Sixty of the schools
80 students, ranging in
age from five years
through high school, will
perform. It's a treat for this
town to have professional
dancers; these are two
highly trained dancers
and it's a treat for the kids,
too."
Ms. Oquendo has been
studying dance since she
was a child in Miami. She
studied at the New World
School of the Arts in
Miami and spent eight
years with the Minnesota
Ballet as a performer and
teacher whose responsi-
bilities included outreach
to public schools. When
she and her husband
moved to Port St. Lucie in

drama-comedy "The Rainmaker" by N. Richard Nash from May 25-June 16.

'The Rainmaker' comes to the Barn


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
The first thing that Anne Marie
Schwarz, director of the Barn The-
ater's upcoming production of
"The Rainmaker," wants you to
know about the play is that it is not
the John Grisham novel.
"It's the Katharine Hepburn/Burt
Lancaster movie of the N. Richard
Nash play," she says. "It's a
drama/comedy and. a play about
hope. It's a beautiful story that's
really two stories. The first is about
a big drought in the Midwest in the

Aries-March 21-April 19
Courage is one of your greatest assets. You always
take positive action. Your tenacity and ability to
complete tasks is legendary. Other fine qualities
are loyalty, honesty and compassion.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your only limits are what you place on yourself.
You know what you want. You have a good educa-
tion. You are a hard worker. Be bold and firmly
committed to your dreams as well. You should see
many positive results.


1930s and a family that's losing all
its cattle. A con man, Bill Starbuck,
comes to town and says he's a
"rainmaker."
The main story is about Lizzie
Curry, a young woman who's con-
sidered plain and an old maid. Her
older brother, Noah, tells her she's
plain, but her brother Jimmy and
her father are dreamers. She
believes Noah, so her father hires
Starbuck even though he knows
he's a con man because he sees a
spark between the man and his
daughter."
Ms. Schwarz, who teaches


drama at South Fork High School,
won't reveal what happens
between the two because she
doesn't want to give away the plot,
but she doesn't hold back about
the cast she's working with.
"Michael Feener, who plays Star-
buck, is a long-time member of the
Barn. I direct every few years, but
we've never worked together. He's
a wonderful actor. Cassie Ricci,
who plays Lizzie, the only female
part in the play, is a teacher in Belle
Glade. She drives here for

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Mercury in Gemini gives you extra wisdom. It's like
having a guardian angel watching over you. This
gives you an edge. Trust it along with your other fine
communication skills and life will progress along
your plan.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You have a wonderful life force and spirit. With
Venus in Cancer it opens your heart even further.
You are an open channel of love in all it's flavors.
This is strong medicine and motivation.

Your recent experience and learning continue to
move you forward towards your dreams. You
make decisions based on feelings and instincts,
tap into the higher powers and get that "Right"
feeling, the game of life.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Recent successes make you want even more out
of life. You can have it. The past plus the present
are great indicators of the future. Make plans


three, six, nine months ahead. Then take action
one day at a time to make your dreams come true.
This plan used by winners like you insures suc-

When your higher nature guides you wiser deci-

Let your co-workers know how much you appreci-

you develop a new plan, be sure to include other
trusted associates in it.

Life is a journey not a destination. One of the main reasons for
your continuing success is your work ethic. You are a tireless
worker in the vineyards of life.

Joy of achievement is the fuel for the fire in your soul. Nothing
thrills you more than seeing an inspired plan work and give
joy to yourself and those in your circle.

Stop bait and switch car advertising


Editor's note: This column
originally appeared in the
Nov. 17, 2006 edition of
Hometown News.
The subject of this
letter is the ads most
car dealers run,
which are designed to
motivate prospective car
buyers to come into their
dealerships believing that
they can buy or lease a
vehicle for less than they
really can.
Most of these ads appear
in newspapers, but there
are also quite a few in
direct mail, TV, radio and
on the Internet. If you are
one of the few car dealers
who do not do this, I know
you will enjoy reading this
column and agree with me.
One of the most com-
mon lures is to advertise
the new vehicle below your
cost. You spend thousands
of dollars advertising
monthly, and consider
losing a little money on one
or two cars as part of your
advertising budget.
The problem is, you
deliberately limit the
number of cars you will sell
at this price and you do this
in a deceptive manner.

One way this is done is
to show a stock number
next to the price of the car.
This translates into there
being only one car avail-
able at that price.
Another technique is to
use the phrase "other cars
available at similar sav-
ings."
First of all, how do you
define "similar?"
Secondly, Florida law
requires that you include
"dealer fees" in all adver-
tised prices, but not in cars
that are sold for "similar
savings." Adding back that
dealer fee can turn a "loss
leader" back into a profit.
Another trick is to show
huge discounts from "list,"
when list is defined in the
fine print as including
"dealer installed" options.
By simply marking up
whatever options you
choose to install on an
advertised car, you can
generate as much markup
as you like.
Bait and switch is also
aimed at monthly pay-
ments.
By disclosing in the fine
print that a very high
credit score is required to
qualify for an advertised
low payment, lease or
purchase, you limit the
possible buyers that can
qualify to a very small
percentage of the popula-
tion. The vast majority
who cannot qualify end up
with a much higher
payment and higher profit
to you.
A favorite deception is
to advertise very large


EARL STEWART
On Cars


"minimum trade-in
allowances." I have seen
trade-in "minimums" as
high as $15,000. These ads
are clearly aimed at
prospects from the lower
economic strata, who are
currently driving older cars
and prone to be less
sophisticated and
informed.
A smart buyer knows that
you cannot possibly allow
someone $15,000 on a
trade-in worth $250 unless
you make back that deficit
in additional markup on
the car you are selling.
Another deception
aimed at the lower eco-
nomic, less educated
portion of our society is
the "no credit, no prob-
lem" ad. Having bad credit
or no credit most definite-
ly is a problem. It might
not be a problem for you,
but it is for the person
with the bad credit and it
is for the bank that will
refuse to finance that
person.

trick is "no credit applica-
tion refused." A sophisti-
cated buyer knows that all
you are saying is that you
will allow anyone to fill out
a credit application, and
you might even agree to
submit it to a lender. But
you are not telling him that
his credit application will
be refused if his credit is
bad or not sufficient.
There are other exam-
ples that I could cite, and
there will be new ways that
many dealers will come up
with to lure buyers into
their dealerships.
As I said in my last letter,
I am asking you to volun-
tarily stop this form of
advertising before the
regulators make you stop.
I am not suggesting what
you are doing is illegal, but
I am saying that it is not
right. I am also saying that
it is bad business. If I can't
get your attention by
asking you to treat your
customers with respect and
consideration, how about if
I tell you that you can sell
more cars and make more
money if you do?
You are successful in
luring lots of people into
your dealership, but you
sell cars to only a small
portion of these people.
Those you don't sell are
probably angry at you
when they learn they
cannot buy the car for the
price they believed. Even
the ones you do sell may be
angry, because they had to
pay you more money than
they wanted.
Unhappy customers
don't come back and they
tell their friends. You have
to spend more on advertis-
ing because your repeat
and referral business is so
bad. This is not good for
your bottom line and your
manufacturer is probably
"on your back" because
your customer satisfaction
rating is so low.
As I said in my last letter,
I look back on the '60s, '70s
and '80s and recall a lot of
advertising that I wish I
hadn't done. But I learned
and "got the message" from
my customers.
I'm not trying to flaunt
my success as a reason for
you to change the way you
do business. But, in a very
recent JD Power Survey of
all Toyota dealerships'
customers, including mine,
we were found to have the
highest customer satisfac-
tion rating of any other
Toyota dealership in the
Southeast, except for one.
If that doesn't get your
attention, we also had the
second highest customer
closing ratio out of every
Toyota dealership in the
U.S. (about 1,300).
Selling a higher percent-
age of Toyota buyers than
virtually anybody else, and
satisfying those customers
better than virtually
anybody (even the very few
who did not buy from us)
translate into high volume
and high profits. Try it;
you'll like it.

MEMORIAL...
The Memorial Holiday has been ignored by too many
U of us whom are beneficiaries of those who have given
the ultimate sacrifice. We do-not observe the day as it
should be... a day where we actively remember our
ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our
neighbors and our friends who have given their lives -
for you and me. C

To all of our U.S. Military, let me Thank You
for making the United States, the world, and the

Viamontes to join the River


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
This spring Indian River
Community College fin-
ished fourth in Florida's
Southern Conference. For
some colleges, that fact
wouldn't be a selling point
to its recruits. But with
two of the top five com-
munity college teams in
the country also in their
conference, Indian River
Community College head
coach Bob O'Brien makes
sure it's one of the first
things he tells potential
players.
And with the ever-
changing lineups of junior
college athletics, O'Brien
jumps on talent as soon as
he sees it.
Last week, O'Brien did
just that when he was able
to sign Jensen Beach No. 1
pitcher Lou Viamontes to
what he calls a "preferred
walk-on contract."
"These are guys who we
are interested in but don't
have any money left," said
O'Brien. "They will get a
shot to make the team in


the fall."
Two weeks ago O'Brien
received a phone call from
Lou's mother Ellen, to

plete game two-hitter

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
Coming off one of the
most successful seasons
in the school's history,
South Fork head football
coach Dennis Levelle
knows that all eyes will be
on his team this fall.
But what those eyes will
be watching might be dif-
ferent from what they are
used to viewing.
Not that the style of
football will change, but
the players running it
will.
South Fork graduated
17 members from its Dis-

team of 2006, including
quarterback Jordan Hag-
gerty, wide receiver
Chuck MacLeod and run-
ning back Chase Dickin-
son.
On May 18, the Bulldog
faithful took their first
look at the new team
when they faced Coconut
Creek and Palm Beach
Gardens in South Fork's
Spring Football Jam*-
boree.
South Fork played
Coconut Creek for one
half, losing 20-6, then sat
while Palm Beach Garden
played a half against the
Cougars. South Fork was
scheduled to play anoth-
er two quarters versus the
Gators, but that match-
up was cancelled due to
weather.
The Bulldogs looked
good on defense up front,
but their backfield proved
to be no match, for the
Cougars, who scored
their three touchdowns
on passes on 65, 13 and
42 yards.
"That score doesn't
mean (anything). Beside
those three plays we beat
them up and down the
field," said senior defen-
sive tackle Ben Kelsey.
"The games don't count
for anything but they
count for us. We're tired
of hitting each other. We
want to hit someone
new."
Kelsey led the attack up
front for the South Fork
defense which was play-
ing without starting line-
backer Will Claunch.
Claunch severed the skin
and tendons on his right
middle finger in a scrim-


mage this spring, and will
be out for six weeks. He
currently has his finger
sewn to his abdomen to
help regenerate skin lost.
"I'll be alright," said
Claunch, who watched
the game in street clothes
from the sidelines.
With last years starting
backfield graduated, Lev-
elle will turn to senior B.J.
Longely to take the snaps
in 2007. Fellow senior
Jason Walsh and junior
Willie Walker will help
carry the load as the
team's running backs.
All three looked good
running the ball against
Coconut Creek, with
Walker scoring the team's
lone'points, a nine-yard
scamper into the end
zone.
"We just beat our-
selves," said Walker. "We
could have beat this team
but it was the first time
we ever came out as a
group like that."
South Fork only threw
the ball one time in the
two quarters they played,
an incomplete pass from
Longley to senior
Cameron McKinney.
Levelle said he had
planned to test out the
team's rarely used passing
game more against Palm
Beach Gardens, but was
unable because of rain.
"We want to throw it,"
said Lavelle. "We're try-
ing."
Despite the loss, and
the injury to Claunch,
Lavelle said that spring
practice has gone very
well for the Bulldogs and
that they should be ready
to go come August.

GPS systems come in handy on golf courses


ow often have you
watched professional
golf on television and
wished that you too had
your own caddie?
Have you longed to have
someone carry your clubs,
rake the bunkers, provide
you accurate yardages to
carry lakes, cut a corner or
put the ball on the middle of
the green?
Short of earning your way
onto a professional tour or
hiring your best buddy to
lug your stuff around, it's not
an easy task.
What if I told you that
getting accurate yardages
was no longer a matter of
finding a marked sprinkler
head, pacing here, there and
everywhere and then
pulling out your slide rule
and calculator?
Thanks to the latest
handheld GPS systems, any
golfer may now have his or
her very own personal
yardage tool.
Global positioning satellite
systems have been around
for quite a while. Many golf
courses have a system
hooked up to their fleet of
carts. They provide the
golfer with a plethora of
information.
The problem is that a
majority of courses still do
not have these systems. And
what happens when you
decide to walk?
Thanks to companies such
as iGolf, Sure shot GPS and
SkyGolf, we now have a
solution: a hand-held golf-
specific GPS device.
If you aren't familiar with
GPS, it's really quite simple.
There are a dozen or so
dedicated satellites in orbit
around the Earth. These
satellites transmit coordi-
nates back and forth to
devices on the ground. The
satellites know where
certain fixed objects are and
simply triangulate to tell you
where you are in relation to


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist


those objects. The latest GPS
devices can tell you within a
few feet where you are in the
world. Using GPS we now
can have near exact dis-
tances in an instant.
The latest golf-specific
units are just a bit larger
than your cell phone and,
usually, easier to operate.
Thanks to competition and
decreasing costs of GPS
technology, acquiring a
handheld GPS device has
become quite inexpensive.
Working your own unit is
quite simple. You go to the
company'sWeb site,
download the course
information onto the unit
and off you go. The newest
units can hold as many as 40
courses and most compa-
nies' databases cover nearly
every course in the world.
The basic information that
you get includes the dis-
tance to the front, center
and back of every green.
While playing, you can add
other points along the way,
such as bunkers, ponds and
so forth. They just need to
figure out a way to add the
beverage cart to the system
and we'll be good to go. It is
literally like having a caddie
do all of the math for you.
Have no fear if your home
course isn't in the database
yet. The units come with
detailed instructions on


how to mark and map any
golf course. And, your unit
will never become obsolete.
One feature I really like is
the one that allows you to
mark the spot where you
just hit your ball and when
you arrive at its new loca-
tion, get the distance
between the two points. It's
a great way to find out how
far you hit each club,
especially your scoring
clubs.
Using these systems helps
us to play smarter and more
quickly. We can now know
the distance to carry a
bunker or hazard and the
distance to reach the front
of the green or fly over it.
Course management
becomes an easier part of
the game for us. No more
finding out after you've
flushed a three-wood, only
to have it come up 20 yards
short and in the water
because the green was
much farther away than it
looked.
Recent studies have
shown that a GPS system
can cut as much as 30-40
minutes from a slow round.
Many golfers admit that
slow play is what aggravates
them most about the game
and drives them away.
Speeding up play appeals to


the courses as well. Faster
play allows them to sell
more rounds every day.
The handheld GPS
caddies may not be able to
read putts, rake bunkers or
hunt for my golf balls in the
woods, but they will provide
me with tons of information
to help me lower my scores.
Best of all, I won't hear any

him up and make him
shine."
Viamontes, who has
been home schooled
since fourth grade, got
into a number of different
colleges in Florida, but
decided to stay close to
home for a few years in
hopes of getting a scholar-
ship offer from a Division
I-A baseball program.
"It feels nice to have
somewhere to go," said
Viamontes. "It doesn't
matter where I go as long
as I get an education and
play ball."
Viamontes was 6-2 in
his senior season at
Jensen Beach with an ERA
that hovered around 1.00,
but received little atten-
tion from college pro-
grams. He did well in a
tryout for Brevard Com-
munity College this
spring, and after getting
into Barry University, was
in communication with
Barry 'coaches about
walking on at the D-II
school.
That's when his mother
decided to get her son's
name out as much she
could to let schools know
about her son's talents. A
Web site, www.louvia-
montes.com, was created
with links to coach's e-
mails, and Ellen began e-
mailing coaching staffs at
different schools. When
Lou made his choice to
stay close to home for the
first two years, she was
happy to have him so
close, but more relieved
she could stop acting as
her son's recruiting agent.

interested in," she said.
"It's a lot of work. I can see
why people hire someone
to be their recruiting
agent."
Viamontes' velocity will
be one of the big things he
will work on at IRCC. He
has been clocked at 90
miles per hour once, but
says he usually throws
around 88. But he was
never considered a strike-
out guy, which is one of
the things O'Brien, a for-
mer pitching coach, likes
about Viamontes.
"Lots of these programs
come in and their focus is
on velocity, said O'Brien.
"Give me aguy who can
pitch at 87-88 with some
movement and they can
win."
Viamontes will join
other area standouts on
the IRCC roster next year
as well. Port St. Lucie
shortstop Andrew Dur-
den committed to the
school this fall, and South
Fork seniors Sean Tighe
and Shawn Swarigen fol-
lowed suit this spring.
One of the biggest
plusses for Viamontes
might be that he won't
have to get used to a new
catcher next year. Lin-
coln Park Academy sen-
ior James Maltese, who is
Viamontes' catcher on
the Port St. Lucie Phan-
toms travel team, will
also be a member of the
River next year.
That is just icing on the
cake for O'Brien, who
sees big things in the
future for IRCC, and Via-
montes being a part of it.
"We're really glad we
got him," he said.
