Budget

ideas


floated

in Stuart

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART City officials
have been struggling to
find ways to bridge a
funding gap since their
discovery of a $605,000
budget shortfall during a
workshop last month.
City manager Dan Hud-
son submitted a plan to
the Stuart City Commis-
sion on Aug. 8 that Would
eliminate the shortfall, as
well as attempt to free the
city from about $1.5 mil-
lion in short-term debt.
His proposal would cut
approximately $429,000
from the city's hurricane
reserve fund and rely on
some of the $325,000 sav-
ings expected as Stuart
transfers its employees
from the city pension
plan to the Florida Retire-
ment System.
He said that reducing
the hurricane reserve
fund to only $300,000
would not put the city at
risk if it were to take, a
direct hit.
"We will still have 90
days in reserve so we feel
like we're well ,ituated,"
he said. "This is money
that was spent beginning
three years ago. during
(hurricanes) Frances and
Jeanne and reimbursed
by FEMA."
Mr. Hudson's proposal
also includes $50,000 in
savings from the post-
ponement of a capital
parks project at Veterans

New radiation

surgery comes to

the Treasure Coast

Cyberknife is a non-invasive
procedure, reduces recovery time


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
STUART When Mike
Easom's tumor in his left
ear began to grow again,
he wanted to try a new
treatment.
When he was diag-
nosed with acoustic neu-
roma, a benign tumor
that grows on a nerve in
the ears, in 2002, Mr.
Easom, a Fort Pierce resi-
dent, underwent a radia-
tion treatment at the Uni-
versity of Miami. The
treatment did not get rid
of the tumor, and five
years later it started to
grow again.


This time around, Mr.
Easom decided to try
Cyberknife surgery. He
will undergo three treat-
ments to get rid of the
tumor, and has already
had one.
"It is a lot less painful,
and I am thankful they
came up with it," Mr.
Easom said. "It's a bless-
ing."
In his previous treat-
ment, Mr. Easom
endured a metal frame
screwed into his head to
control the radiation
going into the brain. With

Beginning at 8:30 a.m.
with coffee and cake on

police officers and city

Sen. Pruitt's eldest son dies


Family asks that
donations be
made to charity
By KIM COTTON
Staff writer
TALLAHASSEE The
eldest son of Florida Sen-
ate President Ken Pruitt,
R-Port St. Lucie, died last
week from unknown
causes.
Ken Pruitt Jr. died Aug.
8, in Tallahassee, where
he worked as a network
administrator at Tallahas-
see Memorial Health
Care.
Tallahassee police are
still investigating the
death, but do not believe
that foul play was
involved. Investigators
are awaiting the results of
a toxicology test before
releasing the cause of
death.
Mr. Pruitt's father is


Senate President Ken
Pruitt, from Port St. Lucie,
who was sworn into that
office in November, with
his family at his side.
"President Pruitt and his
family appreciate the
thoughts and prayers of
friends and family during
this difficult time," said
Kathy Mears, spokes-
woman for Sen. Pruitt.
"The enormity of the loss
of Ken Jr. is indescribable.
During this time of grief,
the family is asking that
their privacy be honored
and respected."
Mr. Prtiitt Jr., 29, is sur-
vived by his 4-year-old
daughter Chloe, along
with five brothers and sis-
ters, several grandparents
and both parents.
According to a release
on his death from Ms.
Mears, Mr. Pruitt Jr. was
described as being best
known for "his incredible
sense of humor, excellent


computer knowledge and
the kindness he demon-
strated to friend and
stranger alike."
A memorial service for
Mr. Pruitt Jr. was sched-
uled in Tallahassee for


Aug. 11.
In lieu of flowers, the
Pruitt family requested
that friends of Mr. Pruitt
Jr. honor his memory by
donating to a charity of
their choice.

Community Redevelop-

The $605,000 shortfall
was first discovered on
July 24, and attributed to
a mix-up over one of the
key factors used to figure
property tax rates.


According to Martin
County's Property
Appraiser Laurel Kelley,
the city was mistakenly
assigned an incorrect
taxable value at first.
"The city should have

ment value, which

able value and the tax-
able value when the
Community Redevelop-
ment Area was first
formed," she said.
"Instead, it was assigned
the taxable value of prop-
erty within Stuart's Rede-
velopment Area."
"We don't like when we
make mistakes, and we're
going to make sure that it
doesn't happen again."
As a result, Commission-
ers tentatively approved a
2008 property tax rate of
$4.333 per $1,000 of


accessed value, almost 27
cents less than originally
projected.
Owners of single-family
homes would see an average
savings of $49 with these tax
rates.
The city of Stuart's $39.4
million budget is set for
approval during a pair of
hearings scheduled in Sep-
tember, with the first to be
held at 5:01 p.m. on Sept. 11.
These meetings will take
place at City Hall, 121 S.W
Flagler Ave., and are open to
the public.

Robbery reported in
courtyard of Blake Library

A man taking advantage of Blake Library's wire-,
less internet access at 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 6 was
reportedly robbed by two men of his computer.
The victim was sitting in the courtyard of the
library in Stuart using the free internet access
when he says he was approached by the two men,
who demanded his computer and his cell phone.
The victim told police he screamed for help and
tried to run, but fell while being pursued. The two
men then reportedly took the computer, a Compaq
Presario 17" screen laptop.
One suspect was described as a black male, 6-
feet, 1-inch tall and 170 pounds, with braided
shoulder length hair and wearing red shorts. He
had a white t-shirt wrapped around his face.
The second suspect was described as a black
male, 5-feet, 10-inches tall and 190 pounds, wear-
ing blue shorts. He also had a white t-shirt
wrapped around his face.
A K-9 unit was able to track the suspects' scent to
an adjacent parking lot. Stuart police believe they
had a get-away vehicle parked in that lot.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked
to contact Officer Marc Bozone at (772) 220-3900 or
Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers at (800) 273-TIPS.

Mr. Avelis reportedly knocked his wife to the bed
after becoming enraged over the haircut. His wife
hurt her mouth upon hitting a bedpost in the
process, after which Mr. Avelis attempted to punch
her in the face.
The victim bit Mr. Avelis 'in the arm and then
dialed 911.
Mr. Avelis was charged with domestic battery
and was taken to Martin County Jail where he was
initially held without bond.

RUBIERS
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.

HEAD-GASKET FAILURE
White smoke from an exhaust
pipe (even after the engine warms
up) is likely due to the presence
of either motor oil in the radiator
or water/antifreeze mixture in the
motor oil, indicating failure of the
head gasket. Most head-gasket
failures are due to either general
or localized overheating of the
engine. Thus, it is a mistake
simply to replace the head gasket
and not explore the cause of the
overheating. Areas that deserve a
check include a broken water
pump belt, an inoperative engine
fan, a clogged radiator, or a
leaking coolant hose. Sometimes,
a clogged coolant passage in the
cylinder head or head gasket can
also cause localized overheating
that leads to a blown gasket.
Have you noticed white smoke
coming from your exhaust sys-
tem? If you have, at ADVANTAGE
FORD OF STUART, we recom-
mend that you-bring your car,
truck, or SUV to our technicians
right away so that we may exam-
ine and inspect your vehicle,
including your head gasket.
Located at 4000 S.E. Federal
Highway, we have years of knowl-
edge and expertise which means
that we can better serve you. We
pride our selves on our personal
service; and caring technicians.
Call 772.781.6520 if you have any
questions. For your convenience,
we have Saturday appointments
from 7:30-3:30 as well as Monday
to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
HINT: The head gasket is posi-
tioned between the engine block
and the cylinder head.

Nightout
From page Al
lor's Grocery on 10th
Street, Stuart police offi-
cers offered sage advice
and helpful tips on how
to combat crime and
make it harder for crimi-
nals to be successful.
Officer Dennis Ashley,
who has been with the
Stuart Police Department
for more than 26 -years,
said he really enjoys
National Night Out and
the chance it offers the
citizenry to get to know
their police on a more
familiar basis.
"It's kind of like the
'50s," he said, "with the
cops getting out of the
cars and back on the
streets and meeting peo-
ple .":
:Local residents also got
to meet K-9 officer David
Duran and his K-9 dog
Cody at several locations,
including the St. Lucie
Place apartments and
Cedar Pointe condomini-
ums, where Cody showed
off his talents to both
young and old alike.
When some of the elderly
residents at Cedar Pointe
expressed security con-
cerns, officers told them
they could call the Stuart
Police Department and
make an appointment
for a free home security
evaluation.
Cedar Pointe residents
Joe and Maureen
Marchiselli have partici-
pated in National Night
Out for several years now
and feel that it really
makes a difference in the
community. Mr. Marchis-
elli, who was a Broward
County Sheriff's deputy ,
for 18 years before set-
tling in Stuart, has been
serving as a member of
the Volunteer Citizens
Patrol for some nine
years now. He simply
wants to encourage peo-
ple to get into the true
spirit of National Night
Out.
"We just want to alert
the people in Stuart that
there is crime out there,
and that they should
report any suspicious
people to the police."
The annual National
Night Out is a nationwide
crime and drug preven-
tion event sponsored by
the National Association
of Town Watch.

For more information
on National Night Out

www. nationaltown-
watch.org or contact the

Missing


Stuart


man


found


in Texas
BY RITA HART
Staff writer
STUART When the
vehicle of Ruben
Rodriguez, missing since
May 25, was found in
June in one of Miami's
poorest neighborhoods,
Martin County Sheriff's
deputies feared the worst.
"Generally, when we
have a missing person
this long, we assume the
worst," said Lt. Jenell
Atlas, spokeswoman for
the Sheriff's Office.
"When we found his
car in Overtown, we
thought he was dead,"
she said.
This time, however, the
Sheriff's Office could
report a happy ending.
An alert caseworker at a
homeless shelter in Dal-
las, Texas wrote to the
Martin County Sheriff's
Office. The letter,
received Aug. 5, indicat-
ed that Mr. Rodriguez
was staying there, and
the caseworker asked for
their help in contacting a
family member.
Mr. Rodriguez, a 25-
year employee of the
Martin County School
District at the time of his
disappearance, baffled
family and friends when
he went out to run
errands on May 25 and
never returned. His 1996
white Chevy Blazer was
found on June 18 in
Miami.
According to Lt. Atlas,
Mr. Rodriguez doesn't
remember or know how
.he got to Miami or to
Texas.
"He has some health
issues that the family is
dealing with," said Lt.
Atlas.
Lt. Atlas did not know
whether Mr. Rodriguez

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.


This is America

This is directed to the landlord that is trying to evict his
tenant because he doesn't,speak Spanish.
Since when did this become the United States South
America, or the United States of Mexico?
This is America.
You must be some scumbag, let me tell you.
People like you we don't need in this country. You can
get on the bus with the rest of the illegal immigrants, and
take your little Stuart area,' Golden Gate, and put it on a
bus, and get out of Stuart.
We don't need people like you here. This is what is
ruining this whole area, illegals, and people like you.

Dentist visit

I am thankful there is a paper that prints rants.
Here is mine.
On my recent visit to a dental outfit in a shopping cen-
ter in Stuart to have my teeth cleahied, I was told that
according to a Florida lawI had to have a complete X-ray
of my mouth.
They would not submit the $92 cost to my federal
insurance plan. I had to pay up front.
This was not for any work such as fillings or extrac--
tions.
That would have to be done later.
I.would like to know about the so-called Florida law.
My husband worked for the federal government both
in Washington, D.C., and Phoenix, Ariz.
I lived both in Rhode Island, and Virginia, and never
heard of this kind of rip-off on senior citizens.
Has anyone else heard of the law?
No one I asked knew about it.
I don't want to be taken again.

Sorry for the mistake

First off, I deeply apologize to Tara Carlen, the owner of
the Ashley restaurant regarding the letter I wrote about
the Fellowship Hall across the street from her restaurant.
The Ashley is a lovely restaurant, and I wish you and it
the best.
I am glad to hear that you and others have complained
about the people that gather in the area.
In the future, I shall get my facts correct.
I'm so sorry that the city of Stuart won't, or can't, do
more about the situation.

He is not playing professionally

I read the story about the local kid who is playing
hockey in upstate New York, but I have to tell you, it is
not professional.
They can give him an allowance, but it is not profes-
sional.
I played professional hockey, and what he is playing is
just Junior A.
You may want to retract that, or make a correction in
your paper.
. Anyone who comes down here from up north, and was
involved in hockey, and there is a lot of us, is going to dis-
credit you and tell you what I am telling you, but proba-
bly not as nice..
A lot of us sort of take that as a slap in the face.
I'm happy for the kid, but he is not playing profession-
al hockey. Not even at the lowest level.
It is Junior A hockey. There is an age cap, and the
money that they are allowed to give them is strictly an
allowance. It is not a salary.
Could you just change that?
I'm open to hear what you have to say.

Editor's note: In the July 27 article in Hometown News
about hockey player Dean Wolfe, we incorrectly referred to
the deal he signed with the Elmira Junior Jackals as a con-
tract. The Jackals are not a professional franchise but a
Junior "a" league.
Even though players receive a stipend and housing, they
retain their amateur status.
We regret the error.

Unnecessary irrigation

This is to my next-door neighbors and all of thdie people
to the people in my neighborhood.
Why are people who are are at home, now out of town,
running their sprinklers?
What a waste of resources. :
There is a switch on the sprinkler box that says
manual.
Take the time to put it on that option, ,*'
There is no need to be irrigating twice, or three times a
week, with all of this rain and humidity.


These will be the same people that will complain about
all of the mosquitoes, dollar weed and lawn fungus.
These are college-educated people. I guess there are
some things you can't learn in college.
If you are going to complain about someone chopping
down trees and wasting our resources, you should realize
that running water when it is not needed is also wasting
resources.
There is no difference.
Please stop wasting our water, and take a moment out
of your busy life to turn off your sprinklers.

Befuddled George

That George masquerading in our 'White House
appears to me like a child with toys with no explanation
of what to do with them.
Hence, that permanent smirk he sports.
He seems very frustrated, as are many America citizens
with his shenanigans.
If only he -would read the newspapers or magazines,
many of which are suggesting impeachment, he might
be inclined to resign and take Dick with him, for the sake
of so many young people dying at his behest.
Jimmy Carter hit it on the head. He certainly is the
worst.

Study in school

As a senior lady driving past the school the other day, I
noticed all of the young people with backpacks on their
backs.
I felt sorry for them. My gosh, they are going to have
back problems when they get older.
They have to carry all of their stuff home in the heat.
A lot of the children don't have places to study when
they get home anyway.
They have families, and things are going on, and they
don't have time to study.
Why don't the schools have a study hour for the kids
during the last hour of the day?
Then, let them go home and relax.
I think that is why a lot a kids quit school.
They can't keep up with the homework. They don't
need homework.
Let them do it in school.
When they get home, let them do their choirs, or let
them socialize with the family or other children.
Many of them have after school jobs.
Wen they get home the television is going, or the other
children in the family are playing.
As a result, they go back to school the next day, and
don't have their homework.
They get in trouble, and they get upset.
Then, they quit school.

Shirtless and toothless
Recently we have been making the newspapers up in
New York pretty regularly, not only with the shooting on
the highway where the whole family got killed, but now
with the abuse case that started out in NewYork.
In a recent conversation with a family member there, it
appears everyone that is interviewed is shirtless.
My daughter wanted to know if anyone here in Florida
owns a shirt. It seems that the men are all walking
around bare chested.
The next question concerned dentists. She wanted to
know if we have any dentists here in Florida because
everyone she sees interviewed is missing their front
teeth.
1 found that quite humorous.
And last, but not least, she watches a cop show quire


often, and half of the programs show trailer parks. She
wanted to know if there are any homes in Florida, or does
everybody live in trailer parks.
It seems to all of those people that live up north and
don't have relatives down here, that we are all shirtless,
toothless and live in trailer parks.
This is the legacy that we are leaving with the people in
the rest of the country.

Thanks for the care

My mother went to America's Health Choice.
I have attended all of my mother's appointments,
and the care this company has given is exceptional.
The quality they gave her was the best I have ever
seen.
It breaks my mother's heart to hear all the bad
things being said about them.
As her daughter, I am letting it be known that if it
wasn't for the America's Health Choice doctors and
staff, my mom wouldn't be here today.
They provide my mother with the highest level of
care that a medical practice could give.
She is never without medication, or treatment.
Thank you for keeping my mother healthy and with
us today.

Quality service

My husband and I were forced to join a HMO due to
the fact that Medicare has terminated the Americals
Health Choice contract.,
As far as we are concerned America's Health Choice
has the best benefits in the area, from the wellness
program to the level of care they gave us.
Medicare has closed the doors of the best medical
company around due to, as they stated, an allegation
of serious plan misconduct.
We don't see it.
They healed me from heart surgery to a broken foot.
The doctors were wonderful and caring.
In the paper it stated that Medicare wanted .a
smooth transition, but they switched us to a PPO, not
even another HMO.
We had to switch back to an HMO because
Medicare forced us into a PPO in which we cannot
afford the medication.
Medicare should have asked us, as patients, wh t
we think.
Any government agency can look through any busi-
ness and find something wrong. I
Who's to say Medicare didn't set America's Healt~
choice up.
What about the good care they gave me? Doesn't
that matter to Medicare?
I called Medicare to let them know'my thought ,
and they blew me off.
For all it matters, I want the public to know what-a
wonderful company America's Health Choice is. v
They saved my life.
Now, that's quality service.

Where are they?

I'd like to know why the pet column is no longer n
your paper. It hasn't been in for quite some time. |
And now, the cooking column is not in either.
I miss both of them.
I would like to know the reason why they aren't n
the paper.

STAMP OF APPROVAL


Dear Readers,
Do you know
everything there is
to know about your
hometown?
I thought I did.
When I moved in 1995 to
this beautiful coastal
region, I made my home in
Fort Pierce. But it wasn't
until a few days ago 12
years later that I learned
a little piece of historical
trivia: that a man named
Edward Binney, inventor of
the Crayola Crayon, also
once had a home in the
area.
Recently, I've relocated to
Cape Canaveral and got to
watch my first shuttle
launch just a few weeks
ago. I learned an invaluable
lesson as a new beachside
Space Coast resident: If you
want a good viewing spot,
leave for home a few hours
before the actual launch!
There were motorcycle
police directing bumper-
to-bumper traffic in my
normally sleepy neighbor-
hood.
Right now, some long-
-time Cape Canaveral
resident is shaking his head
and saying, "I could have
'"told you that."
Well, ladies and gentle-
hinen, that's where I'm going
With this. We're launching
an exciting new special
Section in September, and
we need your help. Titled
"Then and Now: A look at
the past and present in
Martin County," it will be a
compilation of local
,;'history and current infor-
mation about your home-
'town and surrounding
areas. In addition to
historical information,
we'll also be publishing
t4listings of local points of
)interest and facts about the
area today. We're hoping it
"will be a valuable commu-
nity resource for longtime
.residents and newcomers
"alike.


TAMMY RAITS

To Whom it May Concern,
Hi, my name is Angela Leone and I am training to be a professional ballerina.
I have been dancing for 13 years and I truly have a passion for ballet. I have been
working with Fletcher McLane for about a month now training for the Orlando
Ballet. He is such a great person at heart and wants to improve people's well-
being. Every time we work out he teaches me something new and I show him bal-
let moves to benefit my training. He specifically works the right muscles for any
activity you are training for.
I have seen women one week and they look great when I see them the next
week. The other thing that is great about Fletch is that he works one on one and

Working out to me is a pleasure when I go into the gym with Fletch. I have
learned so much from him about taking care of my body and just being healthy. I
recommend Fletch to anybody who wants to work hard, is up for a new chal-

Cyberknife
From page Al


ment, Mr. Easom wears a
mesh mask to help doctors
guide the radiation beams.
Cyberknife surgery is a
robotic device that a team
of surgeons and radiation
oncologists use to treat
many forms of cancer or
tumors 'anywhere in the
body. The device, which
was approved by the Food
and Drug Administration
in 2001, allows doctors to
control the beams of radi-
ation into a patient's
tumor. ,
"We are able to deliver a
high dose of radiation
with extreme accuracy in
a relative short period of
time," said Dr. Silvio Gar-
cia, a radiation oncologist
with the Cyberknife Treat-
ment Center in Stuart. "It
doesn't eliminate
chemotherapy, but it
replaces some traditional
radiation treatments."
Dr. Garcia, along with
Dr. John Robinson, Dr.
Sunil Gandhi and Dr. John
Afshar,.work at the Trea-
sure Coast's first
Cyberknife center. Prior to
the center opening in
June, patients who wished
to receive the treatment
had to travel to Palm


Beach County.
The doctors have part-
nered with St. Lucie Med-
ical Center to make
Cyberknife 'surgery avail-
able to more residents on
the Treasure Coast.
"It's really exciting tech-
nology and to bring to the
Treasure Coast this kind of
revolutionary cancer
treatment to the commu-
nity is something very
important for St. Lucie
Medical Center to be a
part of," said Synetta Arm-
strong, spokeswoman for
St. Lucie Medical Center in
Port St. Lucie. "Before.this
was opened, patients had
to travel to Palm Beach
County for Cyberknife
treatment, and now it is in
our own community."
Cyberknife treatment
allows doctors to adminis-
ter treatment to destroy a
tumor anywhere in the
body without invasive sur-
gery. Patients receive treat-
ment at the Stuart center
without anesthesia or a
long recovery period.
Dr. Gandhi, who special-
izes in lung cancer, said the
procedure is ideal for
patients who could not
otherwise undergo tradi-


tional surgery.
"A big problem is a lot of
patients are not good can-
didates for lung cancer sur-
gery," Dr. Gandhi said.
"They usually have other
ailments, such as heart
problems or have had a
stroke or they can't tolerate
surgery."
The Cyberknife proce-
dure also damages less tis-
sue than traditional radia-
tion treatment or surgery,
Dr. Gandhi added.
"The key is the accuracy,"
he said. "We can give much
larger doses in a shorter
period of time. It not only
destroys the cancer, but
also improves the quality
of life."
Mr. Easom says he will be
able to get back to coach-
ing baseball at John Carroll
High School faster.
"Everything has worked
out fine and I couldn't be
happier," Mr. Easom said.
"Hopefully, this got (the
tumor) this time."

ment Center is located at

Lower speed limit coming to Martin Highway


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
PALM CITY Palm City
residents and other
motorists utilizing County
Road 714 between Mapp
Road and Florida's Turn-
pike will soon have to
adjust to a lower speed
limit, 'thanks to action
taken on Aug. 7 by Martin
County Commissioners.
After a brief debate, the
Commission voted unani-
mously, against the advice
of Martin County Engineer
Don Donaldson, to lower
the limit from 45 to 35 on
the roadway, also known as
Martin Highway.
The decision was made
at the request of a group of
area residents known as
the CR-714 Neighborhood
Alliance, who were repre-
sented at the Aug. ,7 com-
mission meeting by
Alliance Chairman Hal
Smith.
"We are composed of 21
businesses, schools and
civic groups, and our pri-
mary mission is to secure a
commitment from the
Martin County govern-
ment for an acceptable
traffic flow that would
assure safety for motorists


and pedestrians," Mr.
Smith said. "Our challenge
today is to resolve the con-
flict between livability and
mobility."
Mr. Donaldson warned
Commissioners that he
would not sign off on the
lower speed limit, and that
it might not even be
enforceable in court.
"We've done some speed
studies on here, and a 35
would be outside of the
criteria for establishing a
speed limit on this road-
way," he said.
"Forty-five is an appro-
priate speed limit, (and) 40
is the lowest speed limit
that we could implement
in following our proce-
dures."
Commissioner Doug
Smith asked Mr. Donald-
son to further explain why
he would refuse signing off
on the lower speed limit.
"Because in our analysis,
and following the federal
guidelines for establishing
the speed zone, it does not
conform if we lower it
below the established cri-
teria, so it does .not fit in
within the state and feder-
al guidelines," he said. "I
think the greatest risk is
that it could be unenforce-


able."
County Commissioner
Lee Weberman offered to
second the motion made
by Sarah Heard to lower
the limit, but emphasized
that speed limit signs
alone wouldn't be enough
to change driving habits.
"I think for people out
there learning about traffic
issues for the first time,
just posting something at
a speed doesn't slowi peo-
ple down," he said. "It just
increases the number of
people that disregard the
posting. You actually have
to try and change the
character of the road to
make it a slower drive."
Commissioner Weber-
man asked Commissioner
Heard to amend;, the
motion to suggest that the
Florida Department of
Transportation consider
redesigning the Indian
Street Bridge for slower
speeds, but other com-
missioners expressed con-
cern that altering the
roadway and its speed
limit might interfere with
the bridge construction
and cause problems.
Commissioner Mike
DiTerlizzi said that he'd
been warned by the FDOT


Missing
From page A5


was on his way back to Mar-
tin County yet.
"We got news yesterday
that a family member laid
eyes on him, so we're out of


the case now," she said,
adding, "The Sheriff's Office
is thrilled that he's alive, and
I can just imagine how the
family feels."


that the Commission's
decision should not inter-
fere with the design of the
bridge.
"Rather than make a
motion to force FDOT to
try and design something
that may negatively
impact the construction of
the bridge, I would be
more comfortable with
having discussions with


FDOT regarding the
designed speed of the
Indian Street Bridge," he
said.
"We've got enough prob-
lems getting that bridge
built as it is," Commission-
er Susan Valliere added,
before offering a substi-
tute for Commissioner
Heard's motion to clarify
that the Commission was


not trying to dictate the
speed limit on the bridge
itself, which is scheduled to
open by 2012.
Commissioner Weber-
man then asked for a
mandatory review of the
new speed limit at the end
of a year before seconding
the motion, which passed
unanimously with no fur-
ther opposition.

From page A6
What's the point
Ranters unite. You've got
to get real. When you write
in to complain about the
poor service you got, or the
way you got cheated by
someone, or whatever your
complaint is about whoever
it is, and then you are very
careful to allow the guilty
party to remain totally
anonymous, what is your
point?
. The point is to expose
these cheaters, crooks,
slackers, crumbums and
despicables, to warn the rest
of us, so that we can avoid
them.
I get the impression, you
are afraid of some kind of
repercussion or retaliation,
or that you fear legal action


for defamation, slander or
libel.
I am an attorney.
Let's have a little discus-
sion about this.
First, your comments in
the Rants and Raves are
anonymous. No one knows
who you are, except maybe
the Hometown News, and
their information is only
speculative.
Second, if what you say is
the truth, you cannot be
liable for defamation, slan-
der or libel.
Truth is a total defense. If
it is the Hometown News
cleaning these complaints
up because they are afraid of
the possibility of defama-
tion, then they need better
legal advice.
Publishing these comrn-


plaints without the specifics
is without point.
Let's all have the guts to
expose those who need to be
exposed, and let's be specific
enough about it, so we can
all be protected from them.
Say who they are, and
when your problem
occurred.
I want to know which
restaurant it was, which
store it was, which waitress
or waiter it was, and when it
happened.
Say something like: "I
took my own canvas shop-
ping bags to Wal- Mart on
July 31, 2007, so they could
keep their plastic bags, and
. save the environment, and
the stupid clerk tried to put
my items and my canvas
bags into the plastic bags.

Knowing seven facts helps


car buyers make best choice


Iwas talking to a friend of
mine this morning, and
I asked her what the one
thing was that worried her
most about buying a new
or used car.'
She told me that it was
paying more for a car than
she intended to or could
afford.
I have written in past
columns that you should
know exactly what car you
want to buy before you do
your comparison shop-
ping. You have to compare
"apples and apples."
You must also have a firm
idea of the most you will
pay for that car. If you don't
know that you can buy a
specific year, make, and
model for your maximum
budgeted price, go back to
the drawing board and
come up with a car you can
afford. Even if you think
you can, but find out that
you can't after comparison
shopping, don't buy
anything until you have
chosen another car that
you can afford.
When I say "know the
price you can afford," don't
think I am talking about
"monthly payment." Too
many people equate price
with monthly payment.
In fact, car dealers rely on
this confusion to make big
profits. If you really want to
"make a car salesman's
day," just walk into the
dealership and say you'll
buy that car just as long as
he can keep your payments
under a certain amount.
When you have told him
that, you are telling him
that you don't care about
the asking or selling price,
whether you buy or lease,
what interest rate you pay,
what your trade-in
allowance is, how well the
model you chose .retains its
value or how long you
finance the car. Each of
these items is inextricably
tied together.
Many dealers add a
supplementary price
sticker alongside the

federally mandated
Monroney label. It often
looks exactly like the
Monroney, and buyers
assume it is part of the
official manufacturers
suggested retail price. This
extra label adds thousands
of dollars to the real MSRR
B re you determine the
real MSRP and the real
discount from MSRR
When you lease a car, the
leasing company owns the
vehicle at the end of the
lease, not you. That's why
lease payments are so
much lower. If you buythe
car, not nailing down the
interest rate by competitive
shopping allows the dealer
to make a lot of money in
finance reserve. This is the
money banks pay dealers
for charging a premium
over the interest rate that
the bank charges the dealer
(called the "retention rate").
The interest profit to the
dealer can be in thousands
of dollars on a single
transaction.
If you don't competitively
shop your trade-in and
check research sources on
the Web, the dealer selling
you the car may not allow


the fair market value for
your trade-in, just another
way of increasing his profit.
Some makes and models
of cars depreciate faster
than others. After three
years, some models retain
up to 61percent of their
original cost, but some
retain as little as 25 percent.
This is a huge price differ-
ence between two cars that
you don't find out about
until you trade that car in
on your next purchase.
You can finance a car for
12 months and up to 72
months. The shorter the
length of time, the lower
the interest cost. Don't be
tempted to finance a car for
longer than 36 months just
to get the payment down.
You can understand why
it's not as easy as it sounds
to have a firm idea of the
most you are willing, or can
afford, to pay for a car.
The selling price and
monthly payment are just
two of seven items that you
must have a firm grasp of.
There is also lease or buy,
interest rate, trade-in value,
resale value of the car you
are buying and length of
financing.
If you know only six of
the seven, you have left the
car dealer a loophole that
can cost you money.

Slow, steady pace makes climbing


Mount Kilimanjaro a difficult reality


There's only one way
to start this article
and it's to say, "God
bless, Godbless."
For you see, Godbless
was the guide who got me
to the summit of Mount
Kilimanjaro last July.
Godbless (his actual
name) is from Kiliman-
jaro's Chagga tribe. At 17,
he was a porter and at 32
he's now head guide. So,
bowing to his expertise, I
followed him like a lem-
ming for five grueling
days, walking behind him
pole pole (in Swahili:
slowly).
He forced me to adjust to

team wondered if I'd really
make it to the summit.
After all, I was "mama" to
them, though I never
asked how old you are if
you're called "mama." This
little "mama" who took
twice as many steps to
reach the summit as the
men was determined,
though.
I'd been thinking of
climbing Mount Kiliman-
jaro for 20 years. It's known
as the highest mountain
on Earth you can climb
without serious training
and so it seemed doable.
I soon realized it was
really difficult. It wasn't the
trail, the weather or the
altitude that got to me; it
was hiking every day for
six hours uphill and even
longer downhill. It was the
mental challenge of
endless walking.
I also hoped to climb
Africa's highest mountain
before I was 60. With 60
approaching, I decided to
try after leading a group
safari in Kenya. I was
nearby, Tanzanian's health
requirements had eased,
the weather was good and
a friend wanted to try. So
the stars seemed aligned.
He and I chose the
Marangu Route a long,
gradual trail where we
stayed in huts, not tents.
The cost wasn't cheap,
but the unheated huts
were adequate, complete
with mattresses and
pillows. Each hut slept

four and we shared ours
with a pleasant mix of
international folks.
Food was surprisingly
good. Eggs and sausage for
breakfast, bag lunches at
mid-day and inventive
pasta dishes generally at
night.
Sometimes I thought
about the deluxe cham-
pagne breakfasts we'd just
had in Kenya, but why
torture myself?
When we arrived daily at
our huts, our duffle bags
were there and tea was
served. We also got a bowl
of warm water for wash-
ing, the closest thing to
showers we'd ever see.
I won't describe the
ladies' flush toilets, except
to say the outhouses were
far superior. Basically, life
was glorified camping,
made more comfortable
by our team.
Each morning, we were
up at 6 a.m. After breakfast
and re-packing we'd hit the
road. It's said you climb
through all Earth's ecbsys-
tems when you climb
Mount Kilimanjaro.
We walked through lush
rainforests one day and
hauntingly beautiful
moorlands the next.
Finally, we trekked'
through the high desert,
making our way to our
third set of huts. At 15,450
feet, we found everything
cold inside and out.
Conditions were bleak,
especially our first view of
the sheer vertical climb to
the summit.


The ascent began at
midnight. Dressed in
heavy clothing, with ski
poles and headlamps, we
set out together. As usual, I
was left in the dust, except
for Godbless.
Again, I followed his
footsteps, looking at dirt
and stones for hours.
Often I begged to look at
the stars for inspiration. I
never thought of turning
back, but I yearned for
daylight to break the
monotony. The trail was
mostly scree, loose soil
and pebbles. Two steps
forward, one back.
I was shocked to see
people ahead, rushing
down the mountain due to
altitude sickness, and I
was unnerved to hear
others closing in from
behind. Eventually, I let
them all pass.
I continued to stop and
gaze at the stars until I saw
the first light of dawn.
Grabbing my camera, I
took my sunrise photos
not from the summit,
where I should have been,
but from where I was. The
summit would come.
With dawn I had
renewed energy and
eventually; the peak was in
sight. My persistence had
paid off.
Godbless was so happy,
he actually danced.
As I neared the summit, I
heard a French climber
call out, "Keep going. You
have so much courage."
I almost cried. When I
finally reached the summit
I did cry. At long last I
could see the crater, the
glaciers and the real
"snows of Kilimanjaro"
and took photos to prove
it.
Unfortunately, I was also
slow descending, exhaust-
ed from the climb.
Once down, I was forced
to walk five more hours to
our lower huts, to talking 14
hours of walking since
midnight. The next day,.we
had another eight hours to
go to reach the park gate.
Here my friend and I
received our certificates,

Special ingredients make for


great soups, an easy dessert


H ello, smart shoppers.
This week we'll
pretend it's cool
enough for soup (just turn
down the air conditioner)
because I have two wonder-
ful soups to share with you.
Deciding I must be smart
and eat lentils, not my
favorite grain, I set about
finding a recipe. When I
couldn't find one that had
all I wanted, I created my
own.
Then there's mystery
squash soup.
When we lived in Palm
Beach County, I ran sewing
schools under the name
"Learn to SewWith Arlene."
It was in the 1980s when
health restaurants were all
the rage. One day, I visited a
local restaurant. When the
waitress suggested the
squash soup, I made a face.
"Oh, you must try it, it's
wonderful."
She was right. A subtle
undetectable flavor had me
asking for more. Of course,
she denied knowing what
was in the soup, except
summer squash.
Awhile later, a new
student happened to
mention she had worked at
the restaurant and, yes, she
had the ingredients.
How do you thicken a
low-fat, low-cholesterol,
low-carb soup?
Would you believe with
cashews?
Top it all offwith Peach
Melba.
Enjoy, and see you next
week!
Smart shopping: The
guru's money-saving tips:
Buy store-brand chicken
broth. The price is better.
Remember, the only way
chicken broth can be fat-
free is if the chicken never
landed, but just flew over
the pot.
To your health: Nuts have
"good for you" saturated fat.

A magic formula exists for


having a happy relationship


JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide

strong, happy and long lived
relationship. Here is what
they are.

Compatibility

You can't be playing
blackjack and poker. There
must be parallel thinking
instead of opposite thinking.
A weak marriage is not
built on two strong wills
struggling to control.
A strong one is where the
strong wills surrender to the
higher will and the two
hearts and souls ask for
divine power to bless it and
make it fruitful.
This creates a team. A team
has to have a goal to shoot
for. When you reach the goal,
you celebrate the victory.
Then set a larger goal and
keep moving forward in a
parallel direction.Without
the goal and teamwork, the
ego, fear, anger, hunger and
sadness inevitably get in the
way.
He expects you to do
things his way and you
don't. You expect him to do
things your way and he
doesn't. This creates war
and causes broken hearts
and broken marriages.
Lack of compatibility,
goals and teamwork are the
major reasons for divorce
and family hardship.

Create peace

The second factor to a
good marriage is to create
peace among the elders in
the family. Stop the war.
If his people don't like you
or your people don't like
him, you will live in fear and
always be unhappy wonder-
ing when someone will go
ballistic again.
Anger is usually caused by
hunger or lack within the
individual causing the
uproar. This person is
hungry for love and doesn't
want to see anyone else
happy.
Communication and
understanding are impossi-
ble if you can't talk and find
solid ground to build on.
It's the man's job to ask his
family to make peace with
you. It's the woman's job to
ask her family to live in
peace with him.
Whatever we don't like in
someone else are usually


Ll

ONE rAIe Al A EIME
www.giveshoes.org


things that we don't like
about ourselves.
The survival of your
marriage or relationship
depends on living in peace
not war.

Have mutual friends

Mutual friends pick you up
when you are down. You
pick them up when they are
down. Mutual friends keep
secrets from overtaldking love.
When is the last time you
had all your friends over for
a barbecue? Close friends
are the roots that make love
grow.
Isn't this the way you truly
want to live? It all comes
down to the choices we
make. The easiest way to
find happiness is hang out
with happy friends. You can
do it.
How compatible are you
and your mate? Are your
families at peace? Do you
have mutual friends?
If the answer to any of
these is "no" you have some
work to do. We are not
supposed to suffer.
My greatest wish is that
you use this "magic formu-
la" to create a strong, happy,
fruitful and long-lived
marriage or relationship.
You can do it. When it
happens, teach others who
see and feel your glow and
want it in their life. Pass the
torch. We change the world
for the better one person at
a time, starting with our-
selves.
The sweetest news is the
best is yet to come.

Keep children's immunizations up-to-date


My first column,
two years ago,
was about back-
to-school immuniza-
tions.
How quickly the time
has gone. It's been a
privilege and a pleasure
writing this column for
the past two years. I have
heard from many of you
and appreciate your
comments. They keep me
on my toes. Changes are
coming so quickly in
medicine that it is a
challenge to keep up.
Charles Alexander, chief
of the Bureau of Immu-
nizations for the Florida
Department of Health,
says that while there are
no new vaccine require-
ments this year for
children attending
school, there are three
vaccines recommended
for adolescents.
The first is Tdap, which
provides protection
against tetanus, diphthe-
ria and pertussis, or
whooping cough, and is
recommended for 11 and
12 year olds. This vaccine
can be substituted for the
dose of Td vaccine that is
required for all students
entering the seventh
grade.
The second recommen-
dation is the meningo-
coccal (meningitis)
vaccine, which is recom-
mended for adolescents
ages 11 to 18 and espe-
cially for students enter-
ing college and living in
dormitories.
The rate of meningitis,
an inflammation of the'
lining of the brain, is
twice as high for those
17-20 as it is for the
overall U.S. population,
so this is an added
prevention for students
living in dorms.
Additionally, a new
vaccine, the human
papillbmavirus vaccine,
or HPV is recommended
for girls and young
women, ages 9-26. This
important new vaccine
works to help prevent
serious diseases that may


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
lead to certain types of
cervical cancer.
Pertussis, better known
as whooping cough, was
thought by many to be a
disease of the past. The
number of reported cases
among teens and adults -
doubled in the 1990s, as
protection from child-
hood immunizations
faded.
The purpose of the
vaccine is not only to
slow down the increase in
new cases of the serious
disease, but to decrease
transmission of the
illness to infants, who are
extremely vulnerable to
complications and death
from whooping cough.
A recent outbreak of
mumps in the Midwest
reminds us that these
diseases of the past are
not really gone and we
have to remain vigilant to
keep them away from our
kids.
Back-to-school season
means making sure that
your child's immuniza-
tion record is accurate
and up-to-date.
Before a child in Florida
can enter a public or
private K-12 school, a
pre-school childcare
facility or family day care
home, he or she must
have a "Blue 'Card," form
DH 680, a Florida certifi-
cate of immunization.
This is required under
Florida law, to protect
them and other children
from a variety of diseases.
Newcomers to Florida
can take their children's
records to a physician or
the county health depart-


ment and have the
records transferred to the
"Blue Card."
For a list of immuniza-
tions required by Florida,
visit
www.doh.state.fl. us/dis-
ease_ctrl/immune/school.
These requirements
meet the recommenda-
tions of a variety of
sources, including the
U.S. Public Health Ser-
vice, the American
Academy of Pediatric and
the American Medical
Association.
Dr. Alexander reminds
parents of the impor-
tance of keeping immu-
nizations up-to-date.
"It is only through the
maintenance of high
coverage rates among
infants and young adults
that we can continue to
prevent large disease
outbreaks.
"In the last 50 years,
immunizations have
reduced vaccine-prevent-
able disease rates 99
percent," he said.
For those in the process
of completing immuniza-
tions when school starts,
a temporary medical
exemption can be grant-
ed. It has an expiration
date and the immuniza-
tions must be completed
by that time.
For those who cannot
afford vaccinations, the
Vaccines for Children
program covers Medic-
aid-eligible, uninsured,
Alaskan and Native
American children and
some underinsured
children whose coverage
does not provide for
immunizations up to age
18.
The vaccines are pro-
vided by the government
and given by your doctor
at no charge.
If you do not have
Medicaid, you may have
to pay an administration
fee for each injection
and/or an office visit
charge. The administra-
tion fee may not exceed
$16, but the doctor's visit
is a matter between

Plan on cleaning after a storm

Sa lot of talking
W about what to do
before a hurricane hits,
but this column will focus
on some tips on what to
do after a storm has

So far, this season has

as we are getting into
August, that could change
fast.
The best thing to do is
always be prepared for the

a plan.

Southern magnolia

If you are looking for a
great ornamental tree to
plant in your yard, take a
look at the southern
magnolia.
This is a large, broad-
leafed evergreen tree that
can grow to be 60 to 90 feet
tall. The tree can also have
a trunk diameter of up to 3
feet. The tree's trunk is
usually very straight and
erect.
The tree boasts large
leaves that have a leathery
texture. The leaves have a
dark green color with a
slight rusty look on the
underside. They form a
handsome cone-shaped
silhouette against the
Florida skyline, but the
main attraction is the
beautiful flowers the tree
produces.
The southern magnolia
boasts large, fragrant
flowers that can be as large
as 12 inches in diameter.
The flowers typically
appear in the spring and
summer.
I personally enjoy the
wonderful appearance of
the southern magnolia. I
planted mine about 20
years ago in the front yard
and I have enjoyed the
wonderful flowers every
season since.
The tree held up without
a scratch through the
storms of 2004 and 2005. It
is also extremely draught
resistant and requires only
minimal care once it is
established. I have very
seldom had to give the tree
any extra water other than
the normal amount that I
use on my lawn.
Since pine 'trees sur-
round my house, I have a
very acidic soil and that is
one of the reasons the tree
is so happy where it is
located.
If you do have an acidic
soil environment, you can
supplement the southern
magnolia with a soil
acidifier, such as Miracle
Gro, for acid-loving plants,
or you can use a good
quality plant food
designed for acid-loving
plants.

need is a good quality
chain saw. Gas is preferred
over electric because gas
chain saws have more
power and also if your
power is out, you will not
be able to use your electric
chain saw unless you have
a generator.
Before you start cutting
your trees, be sure to take
a full survey of your yard.
Confirm that there are no
power lines entangled in
your work area and also
that there are no large
dangling limbs that could
fall and hit you once you
start working.
If a large tree needs to be
cut down, it is probably
best to leave that to an
expert tree service. In past
storms, most of my tree
debris was already on the
ground and simply had to
be cut up and taken to the
curb.
Once you have all the
large debris removed and
cut up at your curb, re-
survey your yard for other
damage that may have
been hidden within the
larger tree branches.
When trying to clean up
small twigs and leaves
from an area that has
either steppingstones or
gravel, a great tool to use
for cleanup is a gas blower.
After Wilma, I had a large
garden area that was
covered with lava rock.
Trying to use a rake to get
the debris was also picking
up all the lava rock.
I brought out the trusty
gas blower and about 97
percent of the debris was
magically whisked away.
In fact, as a preliminary
task before raking, I
successfully removed a
good deal of debris from
the lawn area with the
blower. This made the next
pass with a regular garden
rake much easier.
Once you are done with
that, a pass with a
mulching lawn mower will
really put the finishing
touches on your yard
I used all these methods









Pitchford


From page A
number of area residents
calling themselves The
Jensen Beach Group,
whose members were
also sued by the develop-
er.
The Commission also
approved the project's
master site plan, but only
after the developer
agreed to reduce the
development by one resi-
dential lot, bringing the
total to 83 dwellings, in
addition to an onsite
restaurant.
More than a hundred
spectators and partici-
pants had filled the Com-
mission chambers and
the lobby as the proceed-
ings got underway about
10 a.m., but the crowd
began to dwindle consid-
erably as the discussion
continued on into the
evening.
Some 35 citizens and
specially selected "inter-
veners" were called to tes-
tify, with approximately
two-thirds -of the latter
speaking out against the
project.
One of the most vocal of
these was Fred Ayres, the
owner of Conchy Joe's
restaurant, which abuts
the proposed project. Mr.
Ayres expressed concern
about not having a wall or
buffer between the work-
ing components of his
business on the west side
of Indian River Drive and
Pitchford Landing.
He compared the con-
troversial development to
a rolling snowball that
started out small and was
now out of control.
"You don't have to give
in to the change of zon-"
ing, even though the
snowball's this high," said
Ayres as he pointed up
high in the air.
"You could wait until a
better plan comes along
that is more compatible


with the community."
Mr. Ayres also referred
to "threats" that the
developer has allegedly
made toward him and
other members of The
Jensen Beach Group.
His primary concern,
however, is that com-
plaints by the future resi-
dents of the project about
his restaurant's noise,
lights and odors might
eventually force him to
shut his business down.
"I would hope you
would consider some
kind of 20 or 30 foot wall
to separate these proper-
ties," he said. "I do think,
in the long run, it will be
the destruction of my
restaurant, and a lot of
peoples' jobs."
Long-time Jensen
Beach resident Peggy
Hess also spoke, out
against approving the
land-use change, saying
the commissioners
should "hold off voting
until the developer has
settled his beef with the
good citizens of Martin
County."
Most of the residents
against Pitchford Landing
expressed concern about
increased traffic and con-
gestion along Indian
River Drive, as well as
altering the unique char-
acter of Jensen Beach.
The residents speaking
in favor of the develop-
ment described it as a
project that would
improve a blighted area
and even help the local
economy:.
Dan Carmody touched
on the issue of housing
density, a common com-
plaint by those opposed
to the project.
"I do think it's reducing
. density, you're going from
158 done to 84," he said,
referring to the number of
RV and mobile home sites


currently on the property
and the originally pro-
posed number of units.
Those in favor also
included a restaurant
owner who said a devel-
opment constructed
adjacent to her establish-
ment had only brought
her more business and
alleviated some parking
issues.
Most of the opposing
legal teams' arguments
dealt with the issues of
neighborhood compati-
bility, affordable housing,
the Florida East Coast
Railway corridor bisect-
ing the property and the
actual meaning of the
word "contiguous."
Attorneys against the
project hoped to derail
the land-use change by
claiming the railroad line
actually separated the
property into two sepa-
rate parcels.
An attorney for the
developer, Robert Raynes
Jr., offered up alternative
definitions from legal dic-
tionaries and the Florida
statues, which he said
allowed "railroads and
canals, etc." as part of
contiguous lands. He
assured Commissioners
that the developer
already had FEC permis-
sion to pay for and con-
struct a railroad crossing
to unite the two sides of
the property.
Shortly before the vote,
the Commissioners
appeared mostly con-
cerned about the loss of
public benefit promised
by the developer, includ-
ing a public pier and a
proposed boardwalk over
the water or along the
shoreline.
Commissioner Susan
Valliere expressed con-
cern that the developer
might decide not to
include these features if


Appeals may be on the horizon


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

STUART Although the
Marlin County Commis-
sion voted to approve a
zoning change to help pave
the way for die construc-
tion of Pitchford Landing,
the project may still have to
face legal hurdles.
"Appeals are a real pos-
sibility," said Virginia
Sherlock of Litiman,
Sherlock & Heims. PA.,
the law firm representing
The Jensen Beach Group,
a collection of local resi-
dents opposed to the
development.
"Potential lawsuits are
being considered," she
said. "The clients are con-


sidering, a id I can tell
you that I, am recom-
mending an appeal. We
have about 30 days to
decide, and I certainly,
think it's a viable appeal."
The Jensen Beach
Group founder, Dr.
Thomas Fullman. would
not confirm if the group
planned to appeal the
ruling, but the 20-year-
resident of Jensen Beach
did say that he takes very
seriously what happens
in Jensen Beach.
"Certain legal issues
should be answered," Mr.
Fullman said. "What
we're interested in. is that
(the developers) of Pitch-
ford Landing follow the
(county's) comprehensive


plan. There are legal
interpretations that may
have to be addressed
because of. the county's
interpretation of the
comp plan. This was an
issue about responsible
growth, not no growth at
all. We wanted responsi-
ble growth and some-
thing that would fit."
Mr. Fullman is already a
defendant as part of The
Jensen Beach Group in a
lawsuit brought by the
developers. He added that
a lot of positive things have
come out of the debate.
"We really focused on
helping Jensen Beach,
and we definitely worked
to reduce the density," Mr
Fullman said.

he were allowed to simply
pay a $100,000 fine
instead of completing the
permitting process that
some residents and The
Jensen Beach Group have


been opposing.
After the vote, several
residents against Pitch-
ford Landing said they'd
continue their fight in
court, while Commission


Chairman Michael DiTer-
lizzi warned the develop-
er not to begin construc-
tion until all court
challenges have been
decided.

CBPH Productions, the brainchild of longtime Martin County residents Carrie
will present 'High School Musical' this spring.


CBPH Productions a homegrown en terprise


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Carrie Phipps-Banfi
and Bryan Phoebus have
been friends since they
both attended Martin
County High School and
performed with its choral
group, OPUS.
They were active in
dramatic arts and starred
in "Oklahoma," he was
Curly and she was Lau-
rey.
Now the two friends,
both in their thirties,
have re-united to start
CPBH Productions, to
provide young perform-


ers dramatic arts
instruction and the
opportunity to perform.
Ms. Phipps-Banfi
spoke about how it all
came about.
"For a long time, I'd
been working on chil-
dren's programs and
Shiloh (Theatrical Pro-,
duction's) summer
camp. There was noth-
ing offered throughout
the school year. We both
teach vocals and piano
and it was something I
always wanted to do.
"Growing up with the
theater in my life greatly


STAR SCOPES
James Tucker


Week of 08-17-2007
Aries-March 21-April 19
You are a player in the game of life not a spectator.
May I even say a star. Why? Because you, practice
more. You live on the edge. Your mind, heart and
spirit are keen. Add your fiery nature and this is a
potent mix of strength and achievement. Your
greatest gift is that you love to share your victories
with others so everyone wins.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your strong family ties are one of your greatest
assets in life. You have a conscience. This and your
old-fashioned values will always carry you safely
through life's ups and downs. Nothing holds you
back for long. Identifying and acting on your top
priorities should be your primary goal in life. This is
what makes you a winner.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Speak this aloud each day upon awakening: "I


impacted who I am. We
wanted to provide an
organization for kids to
participate in the theater
and keep it of profession-
al quality."
Last year was CBPH
Production's first year.
The program started in
August 2006 and by Sep-
tember, 70 kids were
enrolled. That makes
Carrie Phipps-Banfi.very
proud.
"It's a testimony to the
work we've done and the
relationships we've made
through teaching," she
says. "We're family-ori-


ented and we're happy
parents and children
chose to support us."
The program is open to
performers from kinder-
garten through early col-
lege and this year the age
groups will be split. Chil-
dren in kindergarten
through sixth grade will
start work in September
on "Guys and Dolls" and
perform it in May at the
Lyric Theatre.
They'll meet once a
week after school. For
older children, from sev-

I See CBPH, B5


give thanks that I have all I need to heal, find bal-
ance and live a beautiful life. I affirm positive
expectations and positive results are my reward. I
am excited about this day. I will live it fully and
make the most of it for all concerned. All is well."

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Stick to your guns. You know what you want.
Refuse to let the world or others sidetrack you. Be
a "warrior" instead of a "worrier." You are close to
your dreams. Do you write them down? Each one
is like a single piece' of a jigsaw puzzle. You have a
great vision inside your soul. Put the pieces
together and you will soar to new heights.

Leo-July 23-August 22
With the sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Leo,
you have a strong edge and positive potential right
now. Set your main plans in action and the odds
are in your favor for success. Your energy flow is as
strong right now as it will be for a while.
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Life wants to be kind to you if you let it You don't
have to be strong all the time. Take a break. Strive
for balance. Take notice and give thanks for the
beautiful family and friends you have. Take a walk
in nature. Listen to others with words of wisdom
who want to help you. It's all about choices. ,

Libra-Sept 23-Oct 22
You are on the right track. Your natural under-
standing of balance is what keeps you going. Your
healing powers continue to grow. You were born


Tuesday


to help yourself and others heal. Staying in touch
with happy souls is what makes you happy. It's so
simple when you listen to and follow your heart.

Scorpio-Octd. 23-Nov. 21
Just be patient now and go with the flow. Others
around you are growing. So are you. Keep on pur-
suing your main goal and dream. You are getting
there. Create natural rhythm in life. Take time to
dance, exercise or do yoga. This keeps you sharp
and on the edge. With your large heart and focus,
miracles are possible.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your love of adventure keeps opening new doors
and brings renewed excitement and passion in
life. You make your own luck by making wise
choices instead of living by chance. Add to this
your high aspirations, and you have all the tools to
be healthy, abundant and happy. Yours is a rich
life.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Pat yourself on the back. You continue to create a
well-lived life. You have vision. You are an extra
hard worker. You have a strong sense of honesty
and integrity. Your spirit is strong. You persevere.
Did you ever think about writing an inspirational
book and helping the rest of us who could use
some of your powerful motivation?

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


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

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

same.

Telephones no longer necessary for you to make a call


If you spend any
amount of time
surfing the Web you
are bound to run across
the name "Skype."
You may occasionally
see a "Skype me" button
on a Web site or even
embedded in an e-mail.
Skype is quickly becom-
ing the leading "voice
over IP" service on the
Internet.
It's a program/service
that turns your computer
into an easy-to-use
Internet phone allowing
you to place calls to any
other Skype user for free
or any "real" phone
number for a very low fee.
I know, I know. People
have been talking about
cheap (or even free),
phone calls over the
Internet for years and I
think I even wrote a
column about another,
VOIP service, Vonage


awhile back, but what is it
about Skype that warrants
a closer look? What is it
that makes Skype special?
Well for starters: price.
It's cheaper than other
services out there, cer-
tainly a lot cheaper than
your standard "plain old
telephone" system.
It's free to call other
Skype users and outgoing
calls to regular, non-
Skype phones ("Skype-
Out") range around 2 to 4
cents a minute. For a low
yearly fee, about $30 as I
write this, you can sign up
for unlimited outgoing
calls.
Or periodically, you can
load up on credits to use
when making outgoing
calls. There is a little
meter at the top of the
program that tells you
how many credits you
have left as you use them.
Also,' they have special


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

rates for international
calls.
Inbound calls are '
handled a little differently.
You can either be set up to
receive inbound calls only
from other Skype users or
you can, for a low yearly
fee, buy a "SkypeIn"
number. Pick whatever
area code you like and
start receiving calls. If
your computer is turned
off or you don't answer,


you have the option of
letting the call go to voice
mail or forwarding the
call to another number,
such as your cell phone.
The quality is surpris-
ingly clear.
So far, since I've been
using it, no one that I
have called on a regular
phone has suspected that
I was calling from my
computer, and no one
that has called my
SkypeIn number has even
suspected that they were
talking to me on my
computer, at least the
ones thatI've asked
haven't anyway. So far, I
have not heard any
distortion or experienced
any of the issues that
plagued early attempts of
VOIP.
There are even some
pretty sophisticated
devices out there that
work with the service;


things such as desk and
cordless phone modules
that plug into the USB
port of the computer,
giving the system a true
telephone feel rather than
that "ham radio operator"
feel that computer
headsets can often give
you. They have WiFi
handsets that connect
you to your Skype service
any time you have access
to wireless Internet,
eliminating the need to
have a computer, on all
the time and there's even
conversion kits, again
surprisingly cheap, that
let you convert your
home's phone wiring to
Skype.
I was reading about one
system that (when con-
nected to your house
wiring) lets you plug in
ordinary household
phones (wired, cordless,
etc.) into any jack in the


house and be able to
make and receive Skype
calls.
With my current phone
bill as high as it is, I could
see how a system like that
could save a lot of money.
If you like the idea of
making cheap long
distance calls without a
lot of hassles setting it up,
point your Web browser
to www.skype.com and
read up on it. The soft-
ware is free to download
and sports a guarantee
that it's free of spyware
and other malicious
software.
The site is laid out well
with information readily
available, but if you do
have questions SkypeMe
at (772) 621-5515, and I'll
answer what I can.

Treasure Coast Galleon Brett Pasino tries to stop Alex Quintana of the Palm City Palmeiras during the championship
game of the Florida Elite Soccer League at Halpatiokee Park in Stuart Saturday, Aug. 11. The Galleons won the game 2-1
in double overtime.

Galleons come up big in playoff final as

Treasure Coast claims FESL championship


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
It's one thing to say
you're the best; it's anoth-
er to prove it.
When the Treasure
Coast Galleons and
Palmeiras S.C. took the
field at Halpatiokee Park
Aug. 11 for the Florida
Elite Soccer League
Championship, the mis-
match was obvious.
Palmeiras dominated
the FESL during the regu-
lar season and entered
the final with an unde-
feated record.
Treasure Coast was the
playoffs third seed, and
barely advanced to the
championship game after
escaping their semifinal
match with Space Coast,
2-2 (7-6 in penalty kicks).
But that overtime expe-


rience proved to be more
valuable than expected.
Treasure Coast (5-3-1)
defeated Palmeiras S.C.
(7-1-1), 2-1 in double
overtime to claim the
first ever Florida Elite
Soccer League champi-
onship.
Galleons striker and
championship MVP
Hansen Woodruff scored
both Treasure Coast
goals, including the game
winner in the 110th
minute, to complete the
upset and give Treasure
Coast the championship.
The golden goal came
after Woodruff picked up
a loose ball just outside
the penalty box and
dribbed it around two
defenders and past the
keeper.
The South Fork gradu-
ate celebrated by sliding


'We gave a lot of these kids a chance to play

to his knees where he was
mobbed by his team-
mates.
"I knew the guy was
behind me so I invited
him to play (to the right),
but I didn't know if he
would," Woodruff said. "I
kicked it and intercepted
it, and from there I was
like, 'it's time to end the
game.'"
Palmeiras forward Alex
Quintana's had an oppor-
tunity to end the game.in
a similar situation in the
first overtime period, but
his shot sailed just wide


of a net.
And despite dominat-
ing both golden goal
periods, Palmeiras was
unable to finish when it
counted.
"It was an up and down
game. Both teams had a
chance to win it and they
won it on a mistake. But
hey, that's what sports is
* all about. You got to capi-
talize on the mistakes,"
said Palmeiras head
coach Safet Huseinevio.

T here is a saying that
"time heals all
wounds."
In the case of nature,
there are few wounds that
scar as badly as a landfill.
We've all seen the huge
mountains of trash or
borrow pits filled with old
sofas, stoves and cement
blocks. It's an ugly sight.
In the late 1980s, when
St. Lucie County decided
to build a municipal golf
course, it took a route a
few others have taken.
Since no one wanted to
build a subdivision on a
spot filled with Twinkles
that wouldn't deteriorate
for 100 years, why not take
the old landfill, cap it with


several tons of dirt, dig a
few ponds and see what
happens?
For St. Lucie County, the
result was golf gold.
When I first played the
Jim Fazio-designed
Fairwinds Golf Course,
shortly after its grand
opening in 1991, it looked
like a truly new place. It
more closely resembled a
links course than what
most Floridians are used
to playing.
There was very little
existing vegetation. The
edges of the course had a
few trees, and you could
actually find bottle caps
and some broken glass
here and there.
The county planted
trees and native vegeta-
tion throughout the nearly
200-acre track. During the
past 16 years, the plants
have thrived and Fair-
winds has quickly
matured into a great golf
course.
One benefit from
building on a landfill,
besides the savings from
not having to buy 150-plus
acres, is that no homes


is a constant on the Board
of County Commissioners'
plate.
I recently played Fair-
winds for the first time in
many moons. I promise
not to wait that long to
return. I was shocked and
pleased to see-how well
the golf has grown and
rebounded. Celebrating
her "sweet 16th," she has
become an attractive
young lady.
The hurricanes of a few
years past knocked down
hundreds of trees at
Fairwinds. They have
since been replanted or
replaced, keeping the.
mature look intact.
Where I once could cut
corners, trees have grown.
Fairways and holes that
once appeared to run
together are now perfectly
framed and defined. The
overgrown areas along the
perimeter have been
cleaned up.
What I truly liked the
best was all of the flower-
ing trees on the course.
Most Florida courses have
two colors, green and
brown. Not so at Fair-


winds. There are numer-
ous flowering trees and
shrubs to give the place a
full palette of color.
The 18th hole has
always given me fits, and I
must report that over
time, it has not become
any easier. I honestly think
the hole recognized me
and made a point of
milking up for the time
that I had been away.
The course features a
nice menu of holes.
You have long and short
par-3s, a drivable par-4, a
couple of tough par-5s
and one that nearly every
golfer can reach with two
good shots. Located
between the airport and
the river, the wind is
always a factor at Fair-
winds.
A few years back, the
county redid all 18 greens
with the latest tiff-dwarf
Bermuda grass. This new
strain is more resistant to
heat, helps provide a
better roll on putts and
can be cut to PGA Tour
quickness if desired.
Asphalt cart paths were
replaced with concrete


and the bunkers were
reworked and toughened.
I'd recommend avoiding
the bunkers.
Fairwinds is home to the
St. Lucie County Amateur,
the St. Lucie County
Senior Amateur; several
high school golf teams
and has hosted the
Division IA high school ,
championships. The,
course ha also wvon a fair
share of awards for its
design and success as a
municipal course.
Not bad for a dump.
If you haven't played at
Fairwinds Golf Course yet,
or haven't visited lately,
you owe it to yourself to
drop by, but leave the old
sofa at the curb.

call the golf shop at (772)
462-4653 or (772) 462-
2722.

remained scoreless after
the first half of play.
Palmeiras came out fast
and furious in the second
half but found itself down
quickly when Woodruff
knocked in his first goal
to open the period.
Instead of consistently
playing the ball to forward
Ignacio Calcagno and wait-
ing for something to hap-
pen, Palmeiras worked
more as a unit to force situa-
tions that maximized their
chances of scoring. Follow-
ing the on-field leadership
of Stuart Duffin, the team
roared back and. slowly
gained momentum
throughout the half, cli-
maxing when Calcagno


finally found the back of
the net to tie the score at
one.
But that would be the
end of scoring for
Palmeiras and the begin-
ning of the end of their
season.
"It is tough," said Duffin.
"We dominated the whole
league all the way through
and we made the playoffs
fine. We just didn't get the
last kick of the game, but
that's soccer. That's the
game.
For Galleons captain and
league co-founder Pete
Marino, the win was espe-
cially sweet. A dream a
year ago, Marino can now


look forward to helping
the FESL expand to more
areas of Florida, helping
spread the game of soc-
cer.
"We gave a lot of these
kids a chance to play on a
full-time basis and they
have all improved
tremendously," Marino
said. "I was more proud
to see that than anything.
Of course, I wanted to
win, but I was more
proud to see the develop-
ment of the local youth."
The FESL hopes to
expand to two divisions
next year with the addi-
tion of up to six teams
from Miami to Orlando.
