Schools taking steps to thwart staph infection scare


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
High school students on
the Treasure Coast are on
high alert after a strain of
the methicillin-resistant
staphylococcus aureaus
infection was found in all
three public Martin County
high schools.
The infection was initial-
ly found with Martin Coun-
ty High School athletes, but
in a short time has spread
to include some members
of the student body and
other schools.
The month of October
has seen a number of cases


throughout the country
infiltrating schools in Vir-
ginia, Connecticut, New
Hampshire, Mississippi,
North Carolina and West
Virginia.
The recent news that
schools on the Treasure
Coast have been exposed
to a disease that has lead to
the deaths of three youths
around the country has
brought the scare too close
to home.
"It's very troublesome,"
said Martin County High
School athletic director
Greg Hendricks. "It's defi-
nitely not business as
usual."


The infection can easily
be spread by skin-to-skin
contact and is more preva-
lent among athletes.
Those who play contact
sports like football or
wrestling are more suscep-
tible.
Not willing to take any
chances, the Martin Coun-
ty School District is taking
every precaution to ensure
that no new cases of staph
infections are diagnosed
among the county stu-
dents.

District spokeswoman
Cathleen Brennan said the
county's schools were

Congressman

supports water bill


Rep. Mahoney
tours St. Lucie
River says time
is now for relief

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
STUART U.S. Congress-
man Tim Mahoney and Trea-
sure Coast environmentalist
say eight years is a long time
to keep putting off the
restoration of the Everglades
and the Indian River Lagoon.
Representatives of the
media and some 20 different
environmental groups met
with Rep. Mahoney on Oct.
20 to take an informative boat
tour on the St. Lucie River
and pledge their support for
the Water Resources Devel-
opment Act the congressman
recently helped pass.
Since congress passed the
Everglades restoration proj-
ect in 1999, most of the work
completed so far has involved
projects to ensure South
Florida drinking water rather
than restoring the region's
natural water flow.
As they sailed aboard the
40-foot Gator, the group lis-
tened to Captain Barry
"Chop" Lege speak about the
Indian River Lagoon wildlife
and the waterway's depend-
ence on the restoration effort.
Upon returning to the dock,
the congressman held a press
conference on the Stuart
Riverwalk to ask for contin-
ued support for the WRDA,
which President George Bush
has threatened to veto within
the next couple of weeks.
Rep. Mahoney believes the
bill has enough bipartisan


support to override the presi-
dent's veto. Two-thirds of
both the House and Senate
must support the bill in order
to override a presidential
veto.
If passed into law the bill
would provide $1.8 billion for
everglades restoration and
almost $1.4 billion for the
Indian River Lagoon.
Rep. Mahoney reminded
the crowd during the press
conference of the ,river's
financial and aesthetic
impact to the community.
"We've had an opportunity
to remind ourselves today
how beautiful our communi-
ty is and how important this
waterway is to the economy,"
he said. "This isn't just an
environmental issue, this is
the basis of our economy."
He asked everyone to go
home and talk to their friends
about the WRDA bill and to
get the message out.
"We want to make our
voices heard," he said. "Let's
make sure that our children
and grandchildren will be
able to swim in this lagoon
again." -
Rep. Mahoney credited
part of the bill's success to the
willingness of area conserva-
tion groups to work together
for a common cause, as he
introduced Melissa Meeker,
one of the -governing board
members of the South Flori-
da Water Management Dis-
trict.
"We're looking forward to
working with the federal gov-
ernment on Everglades
restoration," she said. "We've
committed the state's share of
funding through 2020."

STUART -The controver-
sy surrounding adult
arcades in Florida landed in
the lap of the Martin County
Commission.
Twice.
The first time was during
the morning on Oct. 16,
when the owner of a small
shopping center Monterey
Road near S.W. Kanner High-
way presented a zoning
change request so he could
lease space to an arcade.
After hearing concerns
about noise, lighting and
traffic from a resident of the
adjacent De La Bahia condo-
minium complex, commis-
sioners voted to deny the
request for the Plaza del Mar
4-1, with Lee Weberman dis-
senting.
Far from a done deal, how-
ever, the issue resurfaced
around 4 p.m. when several
senior citizens pleaded with
commissioners to reconsid-
er their vote. After hearing
the possible financial hard-
ships the denial might cause
the owner of both the arcade


and the shopping center,
they decided to re-vote. This
time the re-zoning measure
passed 3-2, with Commis-
sioners Sarah Heard and
Doug Smith dissenting.
The adult amusement
centers have been popping
up all over Florida in recent
years, often causing contro-
versy due to their video
games that look and act like
slot machines. Instead of
winning cash, however,
patrons win gift certificates
for meals, shopping sprees
and other goodies.
Many people view the
arcade machines as illegal
gambling devices, including
the leaders of the state's
pari-mutuel industry, who
consider them competition.
Although several De La
Bahia residents had written
commissioners complaining
about the potential noise
and traffic, Commissioner
Susan Valliere, termed their
opposition as a "compatibili-
ty" issue.
"The residents in the
adjoining condos find this
use offensive, and I don't
blame them," she said.


When asked by Commis-
sioner Weberman to sum-
marize the objections of the
opponents, Joe Banfi, princi-
pal planner of the county's
growth management
department, replied, "No
gambling in Martin County
- and certainly not in this
area."
Oct. 16 was also a long day
for Sergio Lopez and Mary
Ann James, the owners of the
shopping center and arcade,
respectively.
Mrs. James, previously the
co-owner of Jackpot Fever in
Port St. Lucie, has been
remodeling a building
owned by Mr. Lopez in order
to open the Venetian Arcade.
After previous meetings with
county staff and the local
planning agency which
both approved the zoning
change and usage she was
so sure of the commission-
ers' approval that she took
out a second mortgage on
her home and invested
$300,000 in the business.
Both left the meeting dis-
appointed in the morning

Public defender's offender programs


endorsed by law enforcement


For Weekly We cl ,
Sports Coverage, ',



Hometown News


By NEVA NEWTON
For Hometown News
Law enforcement agencies
rarely approve of the actions
of the public defender's office.
It's usually an adversarial
relationship, but Diamond
Litty's public defender's
office has managed to win the
support of local lawmen by
initiating two programs
designed to lower recidivism
among offenders.
Ms. Litty's office handled
over 21,000 criminal cases
last year, so the programs are
a public safety issue and the
initiative to break the cycle of
crime is essential.
The Client Services Pro-
gram was implemented in
1999 to offer misdemeanor
clients and clients identified
with mental illness individu-


alized rehabilitation plans for
sentencing.
This program helps people
while they are within the sys-
tem and addresses other
problems as well, such as
offenders with special needs,
mental illness and education-
al limits.
It helps people adapt after
their sentencing in county or
circuit court. Some funding
comes from the efforts of
state Sen. Ken Pruitt, who
helped pass the legislation to
finance this program.
Local charitable groups
such as the Exchange Club
CASTLE, the Homeless Coali-
tion, Weed and Seed, and the
United Way have offered vol-
unteers and funding.
The Offender Re-entry Pro-
gram, introduced in 2003, is a
unique collaborative effort
between law enforcement
agencies and Ms. Litty's
office.
Sheriff's departments in St.
Lucie, Martin, Indian River,
and Okeechobee counties, as
well as various city police
departments and the Office
of the Public Defender of the
19th Judicial Circuit, have
joined in the effort to keep
inmates from re-offending.
The re-entry program tar-
gets minor offenders serving
four- to 12-month sentences
by helping them reintegrate
into the community after
serving their sentence.
The percentage of recidi-
vism among criminal offend-
ers statewide is nearly 47 per-
cent according to the public


defender's office, but 16 per-
cent for offenders who partic-
ipate in the client services
and offender re-entry pro-
gram.
"When these people are
incarcerated, most lose
everything, their jobs, their
lease if they rent, or their
house if they have a mort-
gage, and some end up
homeless. We try to help
them in order to keep them
on the right track," said Ms.
Litty.
"Ex-offenders take an
active role in their ultimate
success, resulting in more
successful job placements, a
higher percentage of job
retention, a lower percentage
of school dropouts, and
recidivism. The immediate
needs for treatment of med-
ical, dental, psychological,
and substance abuse prob-
lems, as well as housing are
important to the process."
Major Patrick Tighe with
the St. Lucie County Sheriff's
Office said that jail is very dif-
ferent from prison.
The sheriffs department
realized that some inmates
had nowhere to go after
release, so they appealed to
religious leaders who had
been volunteering their time
at the jail.
They responded and now
there are 23 halfway houses
in the community.
In a collaborative effort
* between the law enforcement
and charitable organizations,
other issues are addressed.
"For instance, former


inmates have to find employ-
ment within thirty days of
release. We pick up used,
abandoned or stolen bikes,
take them to work farms for
repair and offer them as
transportation for ex-inmates
at the public defender's office,
the C.O.R.E. office, as well as
the bike rack at our office,"
saidTighe.
"I also keep people busy
while they're here, by offering
culinary school and a Florida
Food Service Diploma, sub-
stance abuse and life skill
programs and a GED pro-
gram. It's behavioral modifi-
cation as well as learning a
job skill."
Lieutenant Jenell Atlas of
the Martin County Sheriffs
Department works very
closely with the public
defender's office in setting up
the inmates to attend a two-
hour-a-week class.
In 2006,143 inmates partic-
ipated in the class on a regu-
lar basis and as of this date,
160 inmates regularly attend
the weekly classes. All
inmates being released
receive an updated -resource
list, as per department policy.
Increased numbers of ex-
offenders working rather
than committing crimes ben-
efits the community and
saves the costs of arresting,
prosecuting, and incarcerat-
ing them. The wages earned
and taxes paid by the ex-
offender benefit the state and
the community, and reduce
the need for state support for
the ex-offender's family.

State DOT wants traffic
relief for Indiantown

The Florida Department of Transportauon says the
main thoroughfare passing through Indiantown rnust
either be widened to seven lanes or the town bypassed
altogether.
Warfield Boulevard, also known as State Road 710. is a
major traffic link between Okeechobee and West Palm
Beach, which is increasingly becoming congested with
truck traffic. The DOT has committed to constructing a
new bridge over the St. Lucie Canal just east of the com-
munity but is undecided whether to widen the road
through Indiantown or build a new bypass around the
area.
Local residents are divided on the issue. Some fear
widening the road will affect too many businesses and
alter the Indiantown's small-town feel, while others think
a bypass will harm the town's economy.
The DOT is currently undertaking a study and plans to
present cost estimates during a public hearing in
November. A final decision is not expected until at least
2009.

Angel Investment Forum of Florida meets

Some two dozen members of the Treasure Coast chap-
ter of the Angel Investment Forum of Florida (AIFFL)
met Oct. 17 in the Wolf High-Technology Center of the
Chastain campus of Indian River Community College to
hear about upcoming investment opportunities.
One of those was a new light sport aircraft known as
the Horizon. Manufactured in the greater Orlando area,
this novel aircraft is distinguished by its unique design
reminiscent of a World War II fighter jet. The bright red
aircraft features a rear engine placement behind the
cockpit. The light sport aircraft pilot's license is also
quicker and less costly to obtain than a traditional pilot's
license said the president of Horizon's Aircraft Inc.,
Michael Hudkins.
A Massachusetts company, GrowTech Inc., presented a
cutting-edge bio-imaging system for detecting crop dis-
eases such as citrus canker and soybean rust long before
the diseases become apparent to the naked eye. The
portable system uses a low-light imager, spectral signa-
tures and computer processing to quantify a plant's pho-
tosynthetic and energy emissions.
And the third firm, Discovery Technology Internation-
al of Sarasota, presented the NTS NanoDirect hybrid
nanopositioning system, which company president
Mark Broderick described as an enabling technology
used in robotics and the medical field.
AIFFL members get a first-hand look at new products
and technologies early in the game, often just before the
company's begin actively seeking investors.
The next meeting of the Treasure Coast chapter will be
on Nov. 7 at the IRCC Chastain campus.

Downtown Hobe Sound sewer project back online


Martin officials cobble together
new financing method
BY DONALD RODRIGUE downtown area


Staff writer
Hobe Sound's $1.2 million
sewer project slated for the


alone


Bridge Road is back on track
after some creative financial
machinations by county


staffers.
Martin County Develop-
ment Director Jeff Oris told
county commissioners on
Oct. 16 that he'd figured out
a way to finance the Hobe
Sound Community Redevel-
opment Area project with-


Natural

out much further delay.
The sewer work originally
suffered a setback in Sep-
tember when the Florida
Supreme Court ruled that
municipalities and other
governmental entities must
seek voter approval for all
capital projects requiring
the issuance of bonds.
Since the Hobe Sound
CRA only brings in about
$600,000 in revenues annu-
ally, it was unable to pay
back money borrowed with-
in a year's time, the time
limit required without a ref-
erendum.
Mr. Oris presented com-
missioners his plan for the
Hobe Sound CRA to borrow
the $1.2 million from the
county's solid waste fund
and then repay it from funds
withdrawn from the CRA
trust fund.
"It's actually borrowing

within our own trust fund,"
he said. "It's kind of unique,
no one's ever done this
before."
All of the county's remit-
ted tax revenues to the CRAs
are deposited into the same
trust fund, from which they
are later dispensed to the
individual CRAs for their
individual projects.
The Hobe Sound CRAwill
repay the solid waste fund
back approximately half of

OPALS
Opal is the official birth-
stone of October. Most
opals are 50-65 million
years old, dating back
to when dinosaurs
roamed the earth. Opal
formed as silica from
decomposing rocks
mixed with ground
water which formed a
gel that collected and
hardened in under-
ground fissures.
There are two distinct
types of opal, common
and precious. The way
the particles form deter-
mines which type the
opal is. Moving the
stone causes light to
diffract, or split, as it
grazes the opals sur-
face. This light diffusion
shows iridescent flash-
es of green, blue, aqua,
and sometimes yellow-
ish or red colors, which
are referred to as "fire".
Opals are believed to
aid .in inner beauty,
faithfulness, and. eye-
sight, and helps recall
past lives.

fund. The borrowed CRA
funds will then be paid back
a year afterward. According
to Mr. Oris, both funds will
be paid back with interest by
the Hobe Sound CRA.
Mr. Oris said that this new
financing method might be
the way the county could do
all future capital improve-
ments in the face of the new
restrictions using tax funds.
Commissioner Sarah
Heard expressed concern
that the new financing plan
might hinder the work of the
other CRAs.
"You're going to have to be
borrowing, involuntarily,
from the other CRAs," she
said. "We're going to be taking
projects away from them."
Mr. Oris explained that
both the solid waste and CRA
trust funds house money
dedicated to projects that
won't be undertaken right
away and can be repaid
before the funds are actually
needed.
County administrator Dun-
can Ballantyne told commis-
sioners that the county had
borrowed from the funds in
the past, which are typically
used during emergencies.
"Those dollars will be
either sitting there earning
interest or being utilized for
capital projects," he said.
The commission voted 4-1,
with Commissioner Heard
dissenting, to approve the
financing.
Mr. Oris explained later
that the Banner Lake sewer
project in Hobe Sound was a
separate project that had
been funded prior to the
court decision and was still
on track.

Keep your distance

On Sept. 30, my husband and I were at Pet Smart in Jensen
Beach doing what we have been doing for over five years.
We volunteer for. a local organization showing our foster kit-
tens for adoption.
I had taken a small break and gone outside while my hus-
band attended to customers.
A lady with a young child and a greyhound dog approached
the cage with the kittens inside.
After my husband warned her about getting too close to the
kittens, she still allowed her dog to get closer, and before you
know it, he had the tail of one of our kittens in his mouth.
My husband had to pry the dog's jaws off of the kitten while
the woman pulled and yelled at her dog.
Of course, my husband's first concern was the kitten, and he
rushed it back to the Banfield clinic.
While he was doing so, the lady, her daughter and the dog left
the store.
We heard that she had taken her daughter home because she
was terribly upset.
The kitten's tail had been broken and skinned and had to
have an ample portion of it amputated.
We had hoped for the lady to return to the store after taking
her daughter home in hopes of her taking the responsibility of
her dog's action, and offer to pay the vet bill.
She did not return, nor did she called and inquire about the
condition of the kitten.
Unfortunately, she missed an excellent opportunity to set an
example for her daughter on taking responsibility.
The kitten will be OK, but he is on antibiotics and painkillers,
and has to be monitored closely.
My husband and I love what we do, and we take great pride in
the care of these cute and cuddly creatures.
Not only was it a traumatic experience for the kitten and us,
but also to quite a few of the store's employees and customers.
We have warned dog owners in the past about bringing their
dogs right up to the cages, and we have posted signs asking
people to keep the dogs at a safe distance.
Maybe they need to be reminded.
This little fellow went through a lot of pain, and it was not his
fault. I don't want to sound like I am against canines,, because
believe me, I like dogs, too. In fact I have a dog.
People need to realize that their cute dogs are not always
friendly with other animals. Even if they get along well with kit-
tens in their household it is not the same with strange kittens.
So I am pleading with your readers to keep their dogs safely
away from the kittens/cats we bring to Pet Smart, and any other
groups who bring their animals.
We are not there to entertain your dog.
We hope this kind of incident never happens again.

Taxation without representation

I think that the Democrats of the state of Florida ought to
have a mock Boston Tea Party with our voter registration
cards.
If our votes aren't going to count, then I say we make copies
of our cards, and send them to the Florida Democratic party
in Tallahassee, and to the legislature in Tallahassee.
We should say that we are mad as heck, and we are not
going to take it anymore.
This is taxation without representation.
If our votes are not going to count, we need to do something
drastic to make our views know about this.
This is not right.

"Dog" should butt out

I have a comment about Dog, the bounty hunter making
comments about the young lady who had an altercation with a
police officer.
He needs to worry about his criminals in Hawaii, and not
worry about the criminals in Florida.
As far as the officer being out of line, she bit him.
The fact is that a large number of people in this area have
AIDS.
That should be considered attempted murder.
It is not just an attack on a police officer.
If she had AID, hepatitis, or any other disease, and she had
broken his skin it would not have been good.
Dog needs to worry about Hawaii, and butt out.

Illegal immigrants

I received a box of checks that I ordered from a box of
checks that I ordered from a local bank.
All of the information in the check registry was in both Eng-
lish and in Spanish.
I can't believe that there are only 12 million illegal immi-
grants in this country. I think it must be closer to half of the
total population of the United States.
It really must be a very large group now.
These people are not required to speak English.
Our weak political candidates refuse to discuss this enor-
mous problem.
The next generation of candidates will have to come up
with a solution to care for all of the illegal immigrants' chil-
dren.
Having been born in this country, these children are citi-
zens of the United States.
Perhaps the next presidential candidate will discuss this.


Of course, it will be much, much too late.

Do away with daylight savings

I'd just like to comment aboutall of these children being hit
before school in parking lots, and walking to and from school
or the school bus stops.
The solution to this wouldn't cost any money at all.
Do away with daylight savings time, and let these children
go to school in the daylight when people can see them.
The solution is an absolute no-brainer; anybody with com-
mon sense should be able to see it.

Cigarette butts

Why is it that smokers feel that they have the right to flick
their butts wherever they want to?
The number one piece of trash picked up on beach clean-
ups is cigarette butts.
It's not like a smoker would ever know that, because you will
never see them out there doing a beach cleanup.
Aren't they doing enough damage by blowing their toxic
fumes into the air? ,
Do they really need to pollute the earth even further by with
your non-biodegradable butts?
Please do the earth a favor, arid keep your butts to yourself.

Prejudiced opinion

I have a comment on the rant about paper bins being prob-
lems.
Are you kidding me with your statements?
Do you mean to tell me that.you think that just because
there are 15 motorcycles parked in front of a Holiday Inn that
people are not spending money?
That's a little bit biased. I think it is a little bit of a prejudiced
opinion to say that just because a person rides a motorcycle,
they don't spend money.
Are you really worried about balloons across the street?
I think you need to find something more important to worry
about.
Maybe you should take up a hobby. I've heard knitting is
fun. Maybe you should try it.

Teachers

As I was reading the Hometown News, I ran across an article
about teachers.
I am a nurse, however, my sister has been a teacher for almost
18 years.
Here are the top five reasons for not wanting to become a
teacher:
1. If you want to get paid for holidays and summer breaks, do,
not become a teacher. Teachers are only paid for the actual days
that theywork, about 197 days year.
2. If you want to be able to leave your job at work and not
bring it home with you, do not become a teacher. Teachers
grade papers, plan lessons, make parent phone calls after 3:30
p.m. until 11 p.m. or later, and on weekends.
My sister's school does not let out until 4:15 p.m.
3. If you want to be able to have an hour to leave your work-
site for lunch, do not become a teacher. Teachers are required
to stay on campus, and some even do not get a thirty-minute,
uninterrupted lunch.
4. If you do not want to be responsible for children's futures,
do not become a teacher. A teacher's actions, words, and teach-
ing abilities can affect a student's life in many ways, both for the
bad or the good.
5. If you do not want to spend any extra out-of-pocket
money on your students, do not become a teacher. A teacher
spends between $500 and$2,000 a year of their own money on
rewards, supplies, etc. to make a difference in the classroom
and in a student's life.
I wanted the public to know how uneducated some people
are about the teaching field.
I know that my sister teaches because she wants to make a
difference in children's lives.
It is definitely not for the money. That is why some teachers

tu4 qc I


work extra jobs.
What she makes a year still does not make up for the differ-
ence in the cost of her education and ongoing training.
A teacher is a special person, who is responsible for teaching
knowledge, molding citizens, and caring daily for students.
That is why I am proud that my sister makes a difference in
the world.

A reply to pity the dogs

For the person concerned about the welfare of two dogs con-
fined in the hot sun all day, please don't stop your efforts to
report animal cruelty.
For anyone reporting animal cruelty who hasn't been able to
get action from a local agency like animal control, report the
case to the police.
If the police or sheriff's office replies that it is a case for animal
control, state that animal cruelty is a crime under Florida
Statute 828.012, and as such is reportable to any law enforce-
ment agency.
According to tips for reporting all forms of cruelty, by Janis
Fontaine, '"A police organization has the powers of arrest, and
can certainly respond to, and investigate, a reported case of ani-
mal cruelty."
She also states that if the law enforcement agency does not
take action, people should call the mediaand complain, as well
as their local county commissioner if they can't getaction from
the sheriff's .office, or their local commissioners in the case of
police.
If officials still refuse to act quickly, Fontaine's article recom-
mends calling People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, at
(757) 622-7382.
As the person who wrote about the abuse of these two dogs
knows, it's heartbreaking to see, and worse to not be able to get
authorities to help.
But, please don't give up being an advocate for abused and
neglected animals.
They can't have a better life without you.

Those who don't like high taxes should leave
To the person who is unhappy that his taxes are higher (than
his neighbor's): Did you forget that they have been here in the
state paying taxes for 30 years?
How about the fact that there are people here in this state
(who) actually are not happy that you (the late comers) ran up
the price of housing so high that a native-born Floridian can no
longer afford to buy a house in the neighborhood they grew up
in.
If you were a wise consumer, you would have known all the
tax aspects before you purchased your home in Florida. Now at
this late date, you want to whine about it and change the rules
in your favor.
Sorry folks. If you don't like the way we do things here in Flori-
da, you have a choice to make.
By the way, don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Don't forget, they give away boxes at the grocery stores. It
might be the only free gift you'll get
Relish it.

Democrats destroying legacy

One thing is perfectly clear, we have traitors in our midst,
and they are all Democrats.
The recent Gen. Petraeus Congressional hearings once
again unmasked the "We support the-troops, but..." crowd by
demonstrating everything after the word "but" goes directly to
undermine the troops.
They accomplished this by:
Democratic Party talking points sounding hauntingly sim-
ilar to Osama bin Laden's.
Unprecedented discounts by left wing media offered to
organizations carrying out a propaganda campaign against
Gen. Petraeus.
Employing their characteristic politics of personal destruc-
tion, attempting to destroy the general through character
assassination and accusations of untruthfulness before his

report was made public.
Planting lunatics in the
audience to heckle him dur-
ing testimony.
Democratic Congress-
men and Senators disre-
specting the general during
their statements and ques-
tioning throughout the
hearings.
Democrats desperately
seeking to derive similarities
between the Iraq and Viet-
nam wars have finally given
us one. When the war hero
came home, they all spit on
him. The contempt the
Democrats displayed
toward Gen. Petraeus was a
slap in the face to every
member of the U.S. military.
The failure of the Democrat-
ic presidential candidates to
denounce such treasonous
behavior proves each
unworthy to be elected
Commander in Chief.

Short not always
better

To the writer of "Trim the
rants:"
Some things can't be said
in a 3-inch space and get the
message out that you want.
Suggestion to you: If the
dialogue is more than 3 inch-
es, don't read it.
Was this short and sweet
enough?
Editors: Don't stop. You
know what you're doing.

Troops fight to
preserve rights
This is in direct response
to the (rant) "Bush's actions
show he's not a Christian."
I am sorry to say that this
ranter is suffering from a
massive Kool-Aid overdose.
First off, this war had over-
whelming approval when it
began from both the Ameri-
can people and the Con-
gress.
Second, I do not think we
have any right to know of
President Bush's personal
financial situation. (Does the
right to privacy mean any-
thing?) I also conclude that
this person does not have
any oil stock of (his) own.
,Third, (the writer) fails to
understand that the terror-
ists are very devoted to their
religion. They are sorely mis-
guided by extremists that
twist the words' and mean-
ings, .but nonetheless they


are still devoted.
Fourth, war is an under-
taking that will never be
without casualties. I feel for
those who have died and will
die, but they have given their
lives for a greater good and
we all owe them our grati-
tude. They fight for our abili-
ty to express our own per-
sonal opinion, and for
citizens in other countries to
share the same freedoms we
take for granted.
Finally, I ask that person a
question: Is it not Christian
to help those (who) cannot
help themselves?
Looking out for your fellow
man is what we Christians
are called to do, isn't it?
Thank you and our brave
troops for allowing me to
express my opinion.
Thieves will
eventually face God
This letter is for all you
people who think it is OK to
walk into someone's yard
(private property)and help
yourself to what you want -
something you did not work
for, but someone else did.
Get a job.
You have stolen wet suits,
truck batteries, bikes, dirt
bikes, a lawn mower and this
time (more than) 30 mangos.
Who do you think you are?
You were trespassing. Do
you realize that? I could press
charges for stealing.
How do you feel? Do you
think it is right?
Who gave you permission?
Not me.
If you would have asked,
we would have given you
some.
Just remember, God saw
what you did.
Answer to him.

Consequences of
homosexuality

In recent issues of Rants &
Raves, a discussion concern-
ing homosexual behavior
and its life-style, has ensued.
Some of support the views
of the homosexual commu-
nity, while others (label) such
behavior as immoral.
In addressing this topic of
discussion, I have chosen not
to judge or condemn one's
behavior, but to preface my
comments with the scrip-
tures, in that judgment and
condemnation are the
- express rights of a sovereign
God, and not mankind
(Matthew 7 and II Corinthi-


ans 10:12)
Mankind, in the process of
judging and condemning
others, ends up condemning
himself, for he/she is not
without sin.
Romans 3:23 "For all have
sinned, and come short of
the glory of God.
The focus of this discus-
sion, has been directed
toward the homosexual, and
his or her lifestyle, but I must
point out, other sins of a sex-
ual nature are equally as
destructive as sodomy.
Sodomy is offensive to most
(because) it contradicts God's
natural order, his written law,
and man's conscience.
Homosexuals speak of the
social relationship between
same sex couples, while
sodomy refers to the sexual
act performed in (such a)
relationship.
The first mention of
sodomy was in relationship
to the cities of Sodom and
Gomorrah in Genesis 10
(4800 B.C.). As a result of the
practice, these cities were
destroyed by God, as record-
ed in Genesis 18-19, (2056
B.C.)
The historical record of the
decline and destruction of
the cities of Sodom and
Gomorrah, is an example of
God's wrath on a people
(who) had suppressed the
truth of God's word and
despised his reproof.
Other biblical and histori-
cal accounts would include
the destruction of Pompeii
on Aug. 24, 79A.D., as record-
ed by Pliny the younger. The
destruction of Jerusalem in
586 B.C. by the Babylonians
and again in 70 A.D. by Titus
and his Roman army.
All are a result of the sup-
pression of truth, a failure to
heed God's reproof, and
unrestrained sexual behav-
ior outside of marriage.
With the current debate
over homosexual marriage,
the intent is to legitimize
both the relationship and
the sexual act.
By legitimizing homosex-
uality, sodomy eventually
becomes socially accept-
able.
This conflict between the
flesh and the soul, eventual-
ly results in the soul becom-
ing corrupt. As a result, all
virtue is lost and moral
depravity becomes the
norm, leaving the con-
science ineffective.

I See RANTS, A1 3


The joy of genea]


any amateur
genealogists
don't see any
value in joining the local
genealogy society.
After all, your ancestors
didn't live in the area, and
your research is concentrat-
ed in a different part of the
country or even a different
country entirely.
This is one of the biggest
mistakes I see genealogists
make, and I hope to show
you the advantages of get-
ting out and joining with
others to make your hobby
more rewarding and excit-
ing.
The number one reason is
networking. You will find a
group of people, meeting
monthly, anxious to wel-
come you into the fold and
teach you all they know.
The most important tool
in genealogy is making new
friends and contacts, with
people who have the same
passion. Members of 'the
society will come from all
walks of life and all parts of
the country.
These members will be
searching hundreds of dif-
ferent surnames, and yours
may well be included. As
with anywhere you go, you
never know who you are
going to be sitting next to.
There's a good chance that
someone in the room will be
researching your surname,
state, or county, and if not
this meeting, there is always
next month, with new peo-
ple coming to each meeting.
Researching alone is like
working in a vacuum. As
you gradually make con-
tacts, you will find hundreds
of genealogists in your com-
munity and all over the
world.
,You will make lifelong
friends, and may even find
distant, if not close relatives.
You will find members anx-
ious to help you and offer
suggestions on solving
problems in your research.
If you don't find your dis-
tant relative, someone else
may find him for you.
Genealogists just seem to
naturally keep an eye out for
the relatives of their friends.
Each meeting will feature
some type of program, from
general research, software,
specific geographic areas,
organization of materials,


s 9






BRENDA SMITH
Treasure Coast
Genealogical Society
writing a family history, and
hundreds of other topics.
The programs are pre-
sented by anyone from
members of the society, to
guests from other societies,
to professional genealogists.
The society will also, on
occasion, hold an all-day
seminar on any number of
topics featuring profession-
al speakers as well as begin-
ner workshops.
One of the primary goals
of local societies is to index,
abstract, or transcribe local
records and publish the
results in their journals
and/or online.
Those interested in par-
ticipating in one of these
projects will be taught the
skills required and receive
the satisfaction of being
instrumental in sharing this
information with the public.
Often, classes are held on
teaching new research tech-
niques, software, or
researching specific areas.
Field trips can be arranged
between members to visit
neighboring libraries, other
meetings, or places of inter-
ests. With the imagination
of its members, the sky is
the limit, for a successful
society.
Your whole genealogy is
NOT on the Internet. It
takes work, digging into
records, asking questions,
meeting people, learning
the tricks of the trade and
having fun. So get out of
your chair, socialize and let
others help you.
In St Lucie County, the
local society is The Treasure
Coast Genealogical Society.
Meetings are held monthly,
on the third Thursday of the
month at 10 a.m., at The
Trinity Evangelical Presby-


logy

terian Church in White City.
TCGS volunteers are
available to help family
researchers every Tuesday,
year round, at the down-
town Fort Pierce St. Lucie
County Library on Melody
Lane from 9 a.m. until 3
p.m. Please bring all the
family information you
already have.
There are hundreds of
genealogy societies in the
United States. To find one
near you, visit the Web site
www.familyhistory.com/soci
etyhall/main.asp
Not only are some of my
best friends people I met
over 25 years ago in our
local society, most of my
other friends have been
converted into genealogists.
It works both ways.
Genealogy is contagious,
and once contracted, it can
never be cured.
Genealogy Pox has very
contagious symptoms:
Continual complaint as to
need for names, dates and
places. Patient has a blank
expression, sometimes
deaf to spouse and chil-
dren.
Has no taste for work of
any kind, except feverishly
looking through records at
libraries and courthouses.
Has a compulsion to
write letters. Swears at
mailman and computer
when mail doesn't come.
Frequents strange places
such as cemeteries, ruins,
and remote desolate coun-
try areas. Makes secret
night calls and hides
phone bills from spouse.
Mumbles to self. Has
strange, faraway look in
eyes.
No known treatment or
cure: Medication is use-
less. This disease is not
fatal, but gets progressive-
ly worse. Patient should
attend genealogy meet-
ings, workshops, sub-
scribe to genealogical
magazines and be given a
quiet corner in the house
where he or she can be
alone.
Remarks: The unusual
nature of this disease is that
the sicker the patient gets,
the more he or she enjoys it.

Now there is a

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
STUART A local couple
are using their Web page,
graphic design and marketing
talents to put a local spin on
online auctions.
Tim Hoke, the owner of a
local Web-design firm, and
his graphic-designer wife,
Pam, launched the- Your-
LocalAuction.com Web site at
the end of July to give local
buyers and sellers an alterna-
tive to the more impersonal
national sites such as Ebay.
Beginning with the Martin
County site (www.martin-
countyauction.com), they
have since expanded to Palm
Beach, St. Lucie and Indian
River counties and n o own
26 domains across the United
States and overseas.


that set them apart from the
other more well-known auc-
tion sites.
For example, Your-
LocalAuction sites don't
charge insertion fees and are
currently waiving the final
sales fees. Ebay, on the other
hand, charges both an inser-
tion fee regardless if the
item sells or not and a final
value fee.
One of the biggest differ-
ences is that the sites are
local, which means prospec-
tive buyers can actually go see
the merchandise before for-
mally making a bid. Sellers
will also have the advantage
of not having to pay and
charge for exorbitant ship-
ping fees. Mr. Hoke says that's
one of the Web site's most
important benefits.
"The biggest benefit is that
you can sell large ticket items
to someone locally," he said.
"Otherwise, the shipping
would be prohibitive., This

Aiintu'l ,iignilicanil differ-
ence is the "Shop For A Cause"
section. a forum where local
.cha.rit'its can raise funds
through the sale of merchan-
dise and receive online dona-
tions as well. The Hokes have
been closely involved in local
charity work, and Pam cur-
rently serves as the public-
relations chairperson for
Soroptimist International of
Stuart. They provided the
charity link as another way in
which to give back to the
community.
"Shop for a Cause is a way
to facilitate the generation of
what the charities truly need,
with no cost or overhead to
impact their already meager
budgets," Mr. Hoke said. "You
can donate to the charities
without the typical inconven-
ience of donations you
don't have to go anywhere,
and you don't need a stamp."
Any charities operating in a

area can apply for a spot in
Shop For A Cause. The only
requirement is to provide
proof of non-profit status.

ket area of each Your-
LocalAuction sites can partic-
ipate in a variety of ways.
Primarily, they can serve as
the principal advertiser or
"top supporters," as the
Hokes prefer to call them,
which gives them the top
banner advertising position
through the run of the local
Web site. They can also list
any of their merchandise or
items for auction via an
online store presence, with
one big advantage over other
auction sites: The items can
also be withdrawn and sold
offline without penalty.
"If you list it on our site, you
don't have to take it out of
inventory," Mr. Hoke said.
"You're not contractually obli-
gated."
The top supporter for the
MartinCountyAuction site is
Toyota of Stuart. The owner of
the dealership, John E. Pier-
son, said that after studying
the Hoke's business plan, he
knew the auction site would
be an asset to his business.
"People still want to look at
the car before they buy," he
said. "That's why this practical
program is going to work.
They've put a lot of thought:
into this."
Mr. Pierson said he under-
stands first-hand how a local
auction site could be more
beneficial when buying big-
ticket items. After purchasing
a classic car sight-unseen
online, he discovered upon
delivery that it would require
double his original estimate
to restore it.
"If the car was local; I could
have taken it back," he said.
Pam Hoke refers to Mr.
Pierson as their "mentor,".

helped guide them through

ness dealings.

"Please contact (Presi-

to sign this bill," she said.
Many of those in atten-
dance have been fighting
for the restoration of the
Indian River Lagoon for
years.
One of those was envi-

"We need to keep solv-

Despite a prior business
relationship with Mrs. Hoke,
who had done graphic design
work for Toyota of Stuart, Mr.
Pierson said that the merits of
the online business, and not
friendship, were the basis for
his sponsorship decision.
"I don't make financial
decisions based on friend-

the business concern was a
fantastic and viable concept.

Editor's note: This is the
last part ofa three-part
series describing a typical
day at sea.
previously, I wrote
about a typical
morning and after-
noon on a cruise ship.
Finally here, I describe the
wonderful happenings a
shipboard evening can bring.
You can imagine that pre
dinner cocktail timeis a
shipboard ritual and you
should really try to experi-
ence this magical time.
Nowadays, hot hors
d'oeuvres are rare, while
"munchies" such as chips,
peanuts, etc., is the norm in
the bars and lounges. Of
course, you pay for the'
drinks, -the munchies are
free. At the captains cocktail
parties, small cocktail
sandwiches are often served,
while champagne and small
pre-n-Axed cocktails are free.
Dinner is served in the
main dining rooms in two
seatings. The early seating
starts around 6 p.m. and the
late seating around 8:30 p.m.
You dine at an assigned
U table. When reserving your
cruise you may ask your
travel agent to be seted with
friends. This can usually be
accommodated, but if you're
alone you may request, but


'"k~


This is reservation only
dining, and "proper" attire is
expected. You pay extra for
this. You are charged a fixed
price of $20 to $30 per
person and a 20 percent or
more tip is the norm.
Cocktails, wines and some
specialty appetizers and
desserts cost extra. The
premium centre, done to
perfection, is usually
accompanied by freshly
baked breads, an appetizer
or soup, a choice of salads
and desserts.
. As you would expect, the
service is individual and,
usually, impeccable. This
type of dining is great to
celebrate a special occasion
or just "because."
I've done both, and enjoy
being treated like "royalty."
After dinner, it can be as
exciting or sedate as you'd
like. There's always bingo
where you can be a winner or
loser. Then, it's show time in
the main theater consisting
of LasVegas-type shows,
magicians, jugglers, comedi-
ans, singers, acrobats, etc.
Later, there are audience
participation shows in which
you can be a star and/or
make a fool of yourself.
These are often hilarious
both live and the next day
when televised on the cabin

All the lounges and bars
are open and cater to the
after-dinner crowd. The
casino has been open for
hours and is now packed.
Some lounges have, dance
music playing "ballroom

I try to find the lounge
where the jazz trio holds
court and hang out foot
tapping till they break. For
me, I call it a day and stroll to
my cabin to read or watch
some TV before turning in.
The night birds are shaking it

At check-in time, your

not to your liking, you're told

Your meal is served by a

cost) is provided by another
person.
Nowadays, on most ships,
wine is ordered from the
waiter otherwise, a wine
steward (sommelier) serves
this ftmction.
Most ships have an
alternative to the main
dining.room where meals are
served in a self-serve, buffet
restaurant between 7:30-9:30
p.m. On most ships, the
same meals, as in the dining
room are offered. Bar service
is available.
On some ships, I much
prefer the alternative dining
because the atmosphere is
leisurely and casual. I feel
much more relaxed in shorts,
which are allowed here but
are a "no-no" at dinner in the
main dining room.
Specialty restaurants, such
as David's (with a ftill sized
replica of Michelangelo's
statue of David, in all his
naked glory), LaTratbrria,
Chops, etc., are becoming a
common choice for dinner.
These restaurants are usually
located on a top deck, with a,

serving premium seafood,
meats, wines and desserts.

Review
From page A3
Some 3,136 people, or 4.6
percent of Martin County's
workforce, were out of work
this September, compared
to 3.7 percent in September
2006.
According to the Work-
force Development Board of
the Treasure Coast, most of
these jobs were in the agri-
cultural industry. The presi-
dent of the board, Gwenda
Thompson, said that
approximately 300 con-


struction jobs and 700 jobs
in the trade and transporta-
tion sectors were also lost
during the same period
across Martin, St. Lucie and
Indian River counties. Most
of those were directly or
indirectly related to the
downturn in the housing
industry.
Of the three counties,
Indian River County posted
the highest unemployment
rate for September at 7 per-
cent up from 5.1 percent
last year while St. Lucie
County's unemployment
rate was at 6.9 percent, com-


pared to 4.9 percent a year
ago.
Indian River and St. Lucie
Counties had the second
and third highest unem-
ployment rates in the state
in September. Hendry
County recorded the state's
highest unemployment fig-
ure at 9.9 percent, and Wal-
ton County the lowest, at
2.4 percent.

County acquires
conservation lands
The Crystal Beach area of


Hutchinson Island now
forms part of the more than
120 acres that Martin
County has set aside for
conservation.
Purchased from The
Trust for Public Land with
proceeds from the half-
cent sales tax referendum
approved by voters in 2006,
the 10-acre site extends
from the Indian River
Lagoon to the Atlantic
Ocean. County officials
hope to attain a state grant
to open the land for public
use with minimal impact.


Struggle To Bathe?


Walk-In Bathtub

Arcade
From page Al


after three of the commis-
sioners refused to support the
change from an older type
commercial classification to
one that would permit the
arcade, citing Monterey
Road's traffic congestion.
Mr. Lopez, who purchased
the abandoned shopping
center in January, has already
invested about $1 million to
remodel the property. He
warned commissioners
about the deteriorating com-
mercial rental landscape, say-
ing that their denial could
force him into foreclosure.
"For almost nine months, I
tried to put tenants inside,
but the forecast and the aver-
age for the retail in Florida is
now 25 percent," he said.
"Every owner who bought
commercial property in the
last few years is going to be
going into foreclosure, if they
bought when the market was


high."
Mr. Lopez also reminded
commissioners that, under
his property's current zoning,
he could rent to a business
that would create substantial-
ly more noise and traffic, such
as a night club, and they
could do nothing about it.
During the public com-
mentary period late in the
afternoon, several St. Lucie
County residents asked com-
missioners to give Mrs. James
a chance, saying they'd made
friends with her at her Port St.
Lucie arcade. Some even
claimed arcades helped them
to find a social life after mov-
ing to the Treasure Coast.
"One day, one ofmyfriends
invited me," said Joan Haig. "I
met friends and it became
like a family. It's like a meeting
place for all of us."
Gerrrie DeMarie, 76, said
she used to take her late hus-


band there when he was suf-
fering fromAlzheimer's.
"He was able to just sit
there and amuse himself by
playing he machines," she
said. "I didn't have to take him
to an Alzheimer's center."
By5 p.m., some of the com-
missioners seemed to have a
change of heart, suggesting
that Mr. Lopez and Mrs.
James try to work out their
differences with the condo
residents about the noise and
lighting concerns. They
decided to vote anew, and
this time the zoning change
passed.
Commissioner Weberman
said the potential financial
difficulties facing both Mr.
Lopez and Mrs. James proba-
bly factored in the commis-
sion's decision to revisit the
issue on the same day, but he
felt the opposing arguments
were weak.


"I think the other commis-
sioners were making moun-
tains out of mole hills, as far
as their opposition," he said.
"They (arcades) are really
like social activity centers,
and if we had not allowed it,
something much worse
could have gone in there."
Amid the victory celebra-
tion in the lobby outside the
commission chambers after-
ward, Commission Chair-
man Michael DiTerlizzi gave
Mr. Lopez and Mrs. James a
final warning.
"I can't contract zone you,
but I can tell you to go work it
out with your neighbors," he
said. "Hours of operation, no
later than 11 o'clock at night.
We have a noise ordinance,
and we're going to enforce
it."
Mrs. James opened the
doors of the Venetian Arcade
the next day.


Rants
From page A7


Check car insurance


When my car insurance bill nearly doubled, I checked it out.
I found that my personal injury coverage was dropped. In its
place, there was a three times as expensive item "coverage for
uninsured motorist."
This doubled my bill. Isn't it is illegal for a motorist to drive
uninsured anyway?
I do not care to insure this phantom uninsured motorist and
leave myself without protection. Nevertheless, our legislators
have made this a mandatory change in the law.
I have a 10-year-old car, so I only had liability and personal
injury coverage. I cannot afford these new legislated changes
plus personal injury. Looking at it from a different point ofview,
others are now covering me, I can't afford to pay these double-
high rates, so may be forced to join the soon-to-be quickly
growing group of uninsured motorists.
Are all Florida legislators bought by insurance lobbyists?
Are we sending people to Tallahassee who have a conflict of
interest?
It appears the voting citizens of Florida are the losers here.
Since there should have been no uninsured motorist on the
road, the insurance companies must expect to be raking in big
bucks forcing the insured to cover these hypothetical uninsured
motorists.
This may backfire. If more people become uninsured, like I
may have to be, the insurance companies may find themselves


paying for uninsured drivers without receiving premiums from
us. We need to evaluate the integrity and loyalties of current
members of legislation and replace the ones voting their per-
sonal interests with a brighter new group from the top flim-flam
man down.

If your front-wheel-drive vehicle
feels a bit wobbly on the road, it
may involve the driveline (which
is composed of the components
that transfer power to the wheels.)
For instance, an axle joint failure
can lead the spinning shaft to slip
slightly and run out of center..
This condition will be 'felt as a
side-to-side wobble at lower
speeds and a vibration at high-
way speeds. If a driveline wobble
occurs on a rear-wheel-drive
vehicle, the most likely culprit
is a bent axle (which may be
damaged in an accident or a
hard run-in with a curb). More
likely, however, a wobble in rear-
wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive
vehicles will develop in the
drive shaft, usually as a result
of universal joint problems.
Any vibrations, wobbling,
or steering issues should be
addressed quickly, and brought
to the attention of an automotive
specialist. At ADVANTAGE FORD
OF STUART, we know vehicles,
and their drivelines, inside and
out. This knowledge and years of
expertise mean high quality and
reliable service for you. If you
have automotive' issues come
to 4000 S.E. Federal Highway or
call 772.781.6520 today. 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: Wobbles in both front-
wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive
vehicles may be caused by out-
of-balance wheels and tires.

New book answers most questions


you might have about computers


One of the constant
questions that I get
is: what book can I
recommend to learn
Windows?
Until now, I've always
responded a little incredu-
lously, because to me, that
question has always seemed
like asking for a book on the
internal combustion engine
in order to learn how to
drive.
Studying a book on
Windows will do little to
teach the average user how
to do the kinds of basic
tasks that people bought
their computers for in the
first place.
Tasks such as sending and
receiving e-mail, surfing the
Web, typing letters, opening
spreadsheets, scanning
pictures, etc., have their
own sets of procedures to
understand, procedures
that won't get mentioned in
your typical book on
Windows.
Imagine going to your
automobile's user manual
to learn how to drive. The
owner's manual assumes
that you already know the
rules of the road and how to
drive the vehicle. In it you
learn things like how to
adjust the power windows
and top off the windshield
wiper fluid, but you won't
learn what to do when you
come to a yield sign.
For the longest time, I
recommended no specific
book to solve Windows-
related questions. Instead, I
directed people to find
books and materials more
specifically focused on the
task at hand.
In other words, I told
people that if they were
trying to figure out how to
send and receive e-mail, get
a book on their e-mail
program (Outlook Express
or AOL, typically).
If they want to know how
to type letters on their word
processing program
(typically MS Word), get a
book on the program that
they are trying to master.
That's how to get the results
people are striving for;
focus your studies on the


1 ST T IM IN 2 0 E A R S


'What kind of general book should the aver-
age new computer user get in order to get
familiar and comfortable with their machine?"


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
programs that are applica-
ble to what you are trying to
do, rather than relying on
the countless Windows
manuals that are out there.
So, with that in mind,
what's a person to do? What
kind of general book should
the average new computer
user get in order to get
familiar and comfortable
with their machine? If
"Windows for Dummies"
isn't going to help get down
to business. What other
options are out there?
Well, I'm happy to
announce that there is an
option. I've just finished
reading "The Secret Guide
to Computers" (30th
edition). I'm not the type of
reader who likes to curl up
with a good manual. Nope,
not usually. I have plenty of
manuals lying around that I
pick up and thumb through
when I'm looking to solve a
problem, but to sit down
and read a manual from
cover to cover, I can't say
I've ever done that before.
However, "The Secret
Guide to Computers" was a
thoroughly entertaining
read. I was able to begin
from the first page and
found that the book flowed
easily from one subject to
another with a matter-of-
fact style that brings often
intimidating technical
issues down to everyday
language.
And boy, does this book
ever cover the topics.
Everything from old
systems to new modern-day
workhorses are hit upon.

Mutt march to benefit Local Humane Society


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The Humane Society of the
Treasure Coast is holding a
"dog-gone great" event on
Oct. 27. at Halpatiokee
Regional Park in Stuart.
The centerpiece of the
event is the march, or a walk
for the animals.
People and their dogs reg-
ister to walk and gather
pledges to raise money for
the HSTC.
Registration begins at 8
a.m. with the walk beginning
at 9 a.m.


All registered marchers
will receive breakfast from
Chantal's Par Avion. A bless-
ing of the animals will also be
available.
After the walk, there will be
an outrageous canine cos-
tume contest, complete with
celebrity judges and tro-
phies.
Music will be supplied by
WRMF (97.9 FM) and morn-
ing radio personality Jennifer
Ross will keep the festivities
rolling.
Shop the "flea-less market"
while the rest of the family
enjoys face painting, the


Savanna Animal Hospital
"doggie spa," food, dog obe-
dience and agility demon-
strations, games, prizes and
more.
Registration for the walk is
$25 and $10 for those under
18 years of age, six years of
age and under are free.
To pledge a marcher, regis-
ter on-line, or make a dona-
tion to help the animals go to
www.firstgiving. com/hstc.
To enjoy the event without
marching, come to the park
after 9 a.m. and admission is
free.
"This HSTC signature


event is truly a celebration of
dogs and the people who
love them," said event coor-
dinator Amy Christensen.
"We hope everyone comes
out to have some fun. All
money raised at Mutt March
will go directly to the HSTC's
animal care and community
outreach programs. In this
case, helping the animals is
literally as easy as a walk in
the park."

The mornings and
afternoons are much quieter
aboard. The casino is closed,
it's not crowded poolside
and most bars are closed,
but some are never closed!


I usually relax, use the
gym, because it's deserted,
read in a cool, breezy spot
on deck and wait for the
gang to return aboard. The
ship, usually, "slips her lines"
or "weighs anchor" around 5
p.m. and we're off again for
another evening of fun and
games, on our way to the
next port of call.


Until we meet again, it's
happy cruising and bon
voyage to all you cruisers.

are cleaned after each use,"
she said.
She explained that health
department nurses have
provided training to all stu-
dents of physical education
classes and are giving extra
training to all of the stu-
dents involved in fall sports.
In addition, the schools are
broadcasting information
about MRSA on the close-
circuit TV systems.
"It wasn't shocking to
me," said nurse Tracy Bows-
man. "For the past year we
have been aggressive with
cleaning. From a health
department stance I don't
think that they can (fault
the school) because they
know how aggressive we
have been. I feel Martin
County has been aggressive
to stop the spread."
A registered nurse
assigned to Martin County
High School by the health
department, Bowsman said
that she has been making
teachers and coaches more
aware of MRSA for the last
few years. Cases of MRSA
are not new to the Treasure
Coast, but with the recent
outbreak around the coun-
try, more attention is being
put on the infection, she
said.,
"As you educate more
people. the more numbers
there are going to be,"
Bowsman said. "I think
many people are alerted
about it. But we need the
parents to be proactive."
With an infection that is
cultivated by germs and
bacteria, a healthy student
can create an unhealthy set-
ting very easily. Unwashed
gym clothes that build up
with sweat in lockers, com-
bined with a scab or cut
made during a pick-up bas-
ketball game, can become a
perfect place for MRSA to
start. The key is keeping up
with basic hygiene rules like
washing hands and clothes
on a regular basis. Also,
simply covering up wounds
and cuts can prevent a cut
from becoming infected
and open to MRSA.
"I cannot understand
how this thing has grown in
the last week," Hendricks
said. "I think it may be a
case of being better diag-
nosed than in the past. But
when it's preventable like it
is, you want to do every
thing that you can. I think
you can always do a little


better."
With the sudden outbreak
in Martin County, questions
have also risen in neighbor-
ing counties. St. Lucie
County Schools released a
statement saying that there
have been no cases of MRSA
reported in any of the coun-
ty's schools. Port St. Lucie
High School athletic direc-
tor Danny Ninestine has
been answering calls from
concerned parents since
the story broke, and reas-
sured them that they, like
the rest of schools in the
Treasure Coast, are taking
every precaution neces-
sary to keep their children


safe.
"We've tried to work with
all of our coaches and talk-
ing to the kids about per-
sonal hygiene. That's num-
ber one," Ninestine said.
"It's like anything else. This
is serious. We need to have
a plan of action. I've heard
about it somewhere in the
distance, but it is a wham-
bam slap right in your face
when it's right there to
your fellow schools."

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene


Pianist


comes


to Lyric

P pianist XiayinWang, a
Lyric favorite, is return-
ing on Nov. 2.
The 29-year-old phoned
from NewYork to talk about
her recent Carnegie Hall
debut and some pieces she's
added for Lyric audiences.
Ms. Wang says that growing
up in China, playing at
Carnegie Hall was every
young performer's dream.
"When I came here (in
1997), I visited it and stood in
line," she said. "It's heaven for
performers. I thought, 'this is
the one all the kids are talking
about,' and then I'm here. I
was preparing mentally for
the concert for year, and
then, there it was. I wasn't so
nervous because I was so
excited. It has the best
acoustics and being there
makes you a better per-
former."
For her Lyric concert, she
has added some pieces
Treasure Coast audiences
haven't heard her play,
including pieces by Scriabin,
the subject of her recent CD,
some ragtime byAmerican
composer William Bolcom,
and a tango.
Ms, Wang will play some
Ravel and Schumann, but she
likes to mix up styles for her
audiences.
"The ragtime is very
relaxed," she said. "I always
like to put different things in a
concert so the ears will be
fresh. It's like drinking tea
after having some sushi; it's
more excitement after
excitement."

is ready for 'All About Eve'


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Kristal Wion-Eckhardt has been
directing dramatic performances at
Martin County High School for 23
years, a number she finds hard to
believe.
This year,, she chose one of her
favorite shows, "All About Eve," to
kick off the dramatic season, and it's
a choice close to her heart.
"It's one of my all-time favorite
movies," she said. "I saw it years ago
and Bette Davis rocked. My attrac-
tion is that it's about the theater, the
dark side and the heart-of-gold

Aries-March 21-April 19
You are a fountain of inner strength when you
need to be. Once more this reservoir is being
called on to help you through stressful times.
Just be sure to ask for help at home or work
when needed. You don't have to do it all, you
know. When you reach out and others respond
it helps them as much as it helps you.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Act decisively on your goals and plans and suc-
cess is assured. Your inner radar will tell you
clearly when to act and when to wait, if you are
open and listening. You were born with this
gift. Learning to trust it is one. of life's greatest
lessons. Your greatest dreams can be achieved
when you take this step.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your inner strength, good nature and strong
vision continue to bring hope, joy and healing
to your life. Your happiness is measured by the
joy you feel in your heart. If it is low, go out and


side. I've wanted to do it and finally
just decided to this year."
"All About Eve" tells the story of
Margo Channing, a Broadway star
beginning to show her age.
A young woman, Eve Harrington,
comes to Margo as her biggest fan
and becomes her secretary, but she
works to replace Margo on stage
and in her personal life.
It is a challenge, Ms. Wion-Eck-.
hardt said, to get kids to understand
what it feels like to get older.
"I've had lots of discussions with
the kids about adult feelings and
grown-up emotions," she said.
"It's hard for them to identify with


what it's like to be 40. I try to put it
in terms they understand. I'll ask
the senior how scary it is when a
freshman walks in who knocks
everybody out. How threatened do
you feel? You have the experience,
but they're every bit as good. That's
how this character feels. The theater
is inherently threatening and this
show is the life they will face if (the
theater) is the life they want."
Ms. Wion-Eckhardt calls the show
a dramedyy," with drama and come-
dy, as well.
"The show is all about jealousy

do something for someone with a greater need
than your own. In the giving, you receive back
tenfold. This is the supreme law. Surrender to
it.
Cancer-June 22-July 22
You deserve a medal of valor. You are loyal to
family, friends and coworkers. You were born
with so much love in your heart. You never ask
for much for yourself. It's like your richest
blessings come more from spirit than the
world. We all need to learn more about this
lesson that comes so naturally to you. Teach us,
please.
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
One of your greatest strengths is endurance.
You never give up. You keep on keeping on.
You are well respected for this amazing ability.
You see the endless possibilities in life and
continue to make the best ones happen. You
make it look so easy. Giving hope through per-
sonal effort is as fine a quality as any in life.
You have and give it.
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You choose to live in peace and harmony with
a deep sense of purpose and appreciation for
life in all its forms. You refuse to let the world
or negative attitudes pull you away from this
ideal. This is a wonderful way to live and keeps
you.on the cutting edge of life. Are you ready
for more? It's on its way.
Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Rise up from any earthly restrictions and con-
tinue to transform yourself into the free-spirit-


ed, beautiful creative soul you truly are. Free
the chains from the past, open up your heart
and soar like an eagle. It's in you to do all this
and a lot more. You are so close to your pur-
pose and passion. Catch a second wind, go all
out and make it happen. You can do it.
Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You are at your very best when you find ways
to set divinely inspired ideas into forward
motion and create exciting new realities. For
this to happen, you must be focused and aim-
ing at a cause that has high heart value for
yourself and others. Living such an inspired life
will continue to enable you to do more than
you ever dreamed of.
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Remove any limitations or judgments you have
placed on yourself and move up to new
heights of accomplishment and success. This is
a time to honor yourself. Call upon and ask the
spirit to turn on the light within so you may
more clearly see the path. There is so much
you want to do. You can do it if you keep this
strong focus.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Sometimes just accepting. conditions out of
your control is the best policy. Resist trying to
change them. When you have done all you can
and it still isn't enough, it's best to back off and
wait. Patience is the effect of trust and faith in
the universe. This may be challenging because
of your aggressive nature. Slow dowri and all
will be well.

Pineapple Playhouse stages You're

a Good Man, Charlie Brown'


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
The Peanuts characters of
Charles Schultz are so famil-
iar that we know each of the
characters like they are
members of the family.
Many of us grew up with
the television specials fea-,
turing the Peanuts gang.
In the late 1960s, Clark
Gesner wrote words and
music to a show about the
characters that ran first off-
Broadway and then for 1,597
performances on Broadway,
using adult actors instead of
kids.
The show, "You're a Good
Man, Charlie Brown," has
become a staple for theater
groups; the Pineapple Play-
house takes it on from Nov.
1-18.
For director Paul Morgan,
the fun comes in having
adults playing children.
"What's interesting about
this show is that it brings out
the adult personalities in
the characters, including
Snoopy," said Mr. Morgan.
"Lucy is a type A, Sally is


the ditz, Charlie Brown is
the guy who wants to suc-
ceed. You can find yourself
in one of the characters.
Everyone can identify. It's
watching them interact in
an adult way although
they're portraying children.
It's G-rated and a wonderful
family show. It's funny. It's
not meant to be a classic
musical because the charac-
ters are portraying kids, but
both kids and adults will
enjoy it."
The cast ranges in age
from 18-36, with the excep-
tion of one little girl who
plays Snoopy's pal Wood-
stock.
Brian McNiff plays the
lead role and he is an actor
Mr. Morgan knows well.
"I've worked with him for
years, since he was a kid,"
the director said. "He's in at
least three shows a year.
He's a real hard worker who
loves acting more than life
itself. He's really loyal to.
community theater."
Rounding out the cast are
Kaitlin Brescia as Lucy,
Chad Granese as Schroeder,


Teresa LoBianco as Linus,
Kim Connolly as Sally, Carey
Anne Elmquist as Snoopy
and Christina LoBianco as
Woodstock. Jillian Yetzer is
the understudy.
"It's a great cast," Mr.
Morgan said. "They're ded-
icated, having wonderful
fun. No one gets paid so
they work very hard for the
applause and to do live the-
ater."
Mr. Morgan reiterates
that this is a show the entire
family can enjoy, even dad.
"It's one for the men," he
said. "They don't always
-like musicals, but this is
light and fun. For kids, if
they've never been to a
musical, it's a good one to
start with."
The Pineapple Playhouse,
700 West Weatherbee Road,
in Fort Pierce, presents
"You're a Good Man, Charlie
Brown" from Nov. 1-18.
Performances are Thurs-
days-Saturdays at 8 p.m.
and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tick-
ets are $18; call the box
office at (772) 465-0366.


"You're a Good Man,
Charlie Brown," will run at
the Pineapple Playhouse in
Fort Pierce from Nov. 1-18.

True riches livewithin the

mind, the heart and the spirit


A en we live an
Sinner- directed life,
V then from the
dreams and visions, we
manifest and create our
reality. We have been taught
that the last frontier is outer
space.
I believe that the true last
frontier is to find and learn
how to use the vast wisdom
of the universe within our
own mind, heart and spirit.
The ancient philosopher
Socrates said, "Know
thyself." This wisdom is
maybe needed more now
than ever before.
We are using up the
natural resources of Mother
Earth at an alarming rate.
The streams and rivers are
becoming more polluted.
How long will it be before
the seas become stagnant?
The destruction of the
rain forests around the
equator kills off dozens of
plant and animal species
every year. The holes in the
ozone are getting larger,
according to scientific
reports. The ravages of war
continue to destroy human
life and land. The list goes
on. When will this insanity
stop?
I believe it is only possi-
ble when greed is replaced

The Spirit Guide
by giving and we begin to

can't we replant a tree for
every one taken from the
forests? The most important
question is, "What kind of
world will our grandchil-
dren be living in in the
future? What will the quality
of life be like 30 years from
now?"
It reminds me of the story
of the man who fell out of a
100-story building. As he
was falling, people looking
out the windows asked him,
"How's it going?" He
answered, "So far, so good."
I am concerned about life
and it's continuation. I feel

"Halloweird" to bring the music of Alice

Cooper and Black Sabbath to Stuart


By DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
STUART This Hal-
loween season, you can
put on your scariest cos-
tume and boogie to the
music of Black Sabbath
and Alice Cooper per-
formed by several
renowned Treasure Coast
musicians.
Members of the local
bands Boss Groove, SWS
and Flashback, along with
several other area musi-
cians, will join forces on
Nov. 2 to play the most
popular --songs by the
famous rock 'n rollers dur-
ing the Halloweird celebra-
tion at Hemingway's in
Stuart.
The concert was the
brainstorm of Port St.
Lucie resident Wade Jack-
son, who currently plays

Jackson, 43, has been play-
ing since his teenage years

You live well beyond the
survival mode.. You are
whole, creative and free to
build a lasting legacy that
will live beyond your earth-
ly years. Installing wisdom
and confidence in the heart
and spirit of others is the
key to lasting success. In
other words, pass the torch
of truth you have discov-
ered and the light lives on.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
You were born to do great
things with your life. You
are at your best when you
are relaxed, centered and
focused. It is easy for you to
turn ideas into realities
when you have this depth
and concentration. You
have the promise and the
tools and you know how to
use them. Your destiny is
assured.

lac Bratz before the group
broke up in the early
1990s.
He said the Halloweird
concept offered many old
friends the chance to per-
form together who nor-
mally didn't get the
chance.
"Basically, all the musi-
cians wanted to have
something where we could
play together and do
something interesting," he
said. "We thought this was
unusual." ;
Mr. Jackson first enlist-
ed his friend, John
Houtrides of Palm City. Mr.
Houtrides, 45, has been
the lead singer for the local
groups Smoke and Mirrors
and Face First and jumped
at the chance since he and
Mr. Jackson have been
buddies for years.
"We had jammed togeth-
er, but Wade and I had
never actually done a show
together," he said.

"Nobody plays that kind of
stuff anymore, and we fig-
ured for Halloween it'd be
a pretty good idea."
Mr. Houtrides will be
performing the Black Sab-
bath songs that helped
make Ozzy Osbourne a
star. The New Jersey
native, who's lived on the
Treasure Coast since 1978,
first began singing for
bands when he was only
13.
"I've been semi-serious
for aboutl0 years now," he
said.
Both the musicians are
also friends with Port St.
Lucie resident Michael
"Spaz" McGoortie, who
currently sings lead for
SWS. He formerly per-
formed with Mr. Jackson in
Cadillac Bratz and says he
jumped at the chance to
play with him again.
"These guys are all my.
friends, and I don't usually
get to play with them," he
said. "It's going to be a good


show.'
Mr. McGoortie, 51, will
interpret the music of Alice
Cooper, and like the famous
rocker, is also a native son of
Detroit.
"Alice was my hero," he
said. "I love Alice Cooper. I
actually did an Alice Cooper
Show a few years back at the
Lyric Theatre."
Mr. Houtrides even has a
musician friend from New
Jersey flying down to per-
form in the anxiously await-
ed Halloweird event.
"We're just a bunch of fair-
ly respectable middle-age
guysjust ting to-ha-e a lit-

Hello smart shoppers.
Let's get ready for
Halloween.
Certain recipes and ideas
are repeated periodically,
especially when they're
topical.
I always made my kids'
Halloween costumes. When
my youngest son asked if just
once he could have a "store-
bought" costume, like all the
other kids, I bought him a
lion costume consisting of a
gold-colored flannel jump-
suit and a lion mask.
The following year, Guy, 8,
Steve, 6 and I were trying to
come up with an original
idea (yes, I was back making
costumes again) for the
Lion's Club kid's party, since
prizes were going to be
awarded. Finally, I said,
"What holiday is the best
one, ever?" It didn't take
them long to yell, "Christ-
mas!" "Who comes at
Christmas and who leads his
sleigh?" Santa and Rudolph,
of course. How come I've
never seen these costumes at
Halloween?
I made Guy red flannel
pajamas and a Santa hat and
adorned it properly with
cotton batting (fur). I
retrieved the gold jumpsuit
from the previous year,
appliqued white fleece to the
chest and trimmed it with
jingle bells. The hat covered
the head and fastened under
the chin. The ears and the
stiff cardboard antlers were
attached somehow. I painted

his cheeks red, added
eyelashes and, using theatri-
cal glue, attached a red-
colored cotton ball to his
nose. They were quite a pair.
After the party, Guy was
very excited, stating that they
had won "most original" and
Steven won a prize. They
even had their picture in the
newspaper. Steve, on the
other hand, was extremely
quiet.
"Aren't you happy, you
won?" "I'm a boy not a girl,"
he said. "I was voted the
'prettiest."'
With his big brown eyes
that looked like a deer in
headlights, I could see why
they would make a mistake.
Let's face it, Rudolph is
very pretty and he's a boy,
right?
When I was a teenager
(yes, I was a teenager once) I
found instructions to make
little baskets for trick or
treaters. Today, unfortunate-
ly, you would never give .
unwrapped candy, but for a
special party or special
friends, this is surely a
winner.
Halloween has become a
popular adult holiday as well,
so let's have some treats for
the big trick or treaters.
Have fun. See you next
week.

HALLOWEEN FLOWER
BASKETS (NIB)
To make several baskets
you will need:.


r--" ej


1 bag multi-colored gum-
drops
1 bag giant gumdrops
Pipe cleaners
Cellophane (colored)
Tooth picks
Small rubber bands
Cut cellophane in 6-inch
squares. Place a large gum-
drop in the center and secure
it with a rubber band near
the base as you ruffle up the
cellophane.
Insert a pipe cleaner in the
gumdrop, curving it to create
a handle.
With a toothpick, spear
small gumdrops "flowers"
and insert them into the
large gumdrop. Very pretty,
very different and yummy.

SPINACH-ARTICHOKE
DIP (NIB)
Regular and low-fat
I can't pass this by when I
see it on a menu. I know it's
very high in fat and decided
to try my hand at creating a
lower-fat version. I used fat-
free mozzarella (Kraft sells it
grated and it's excellent),
cream cheese and mayon-
naise. The Parmesan cheese
is whole milk. There are no
acceptable substitutes.
1 10 ounce box frozen,
chopped spinach, thawed

3/4 cup mayonnaise not

Always getan 'out the


door' automobile price


Editor's note: This
column originally ran in
the April 30, 2006 edition of
Hometown News.
M /any states have
/Ilaws prohibiting
aLddiJcar dealers from
adding "fees" onto the
prices they quote. Unfortu-
nately, Florida is not one of
these states.
The law in Florida
requires only that dealers
disclose on the buyers'
order that this additional
charge is not a local, state
or federal fee, but is
actually just profit to the
dealer.
Almost every car
dealership in Florida has
this extra profit printed
on their buyer's order,
under an assortment of
labels such as "dealer
fee," "doc fee" and "dealer
prep."
You will not see it on
the car's price sticker, and
you will probably not
hear any verbal disclosure
by the sales person or
manager, unless you ask.
If you ask, you will be told
that "all other dealers
charge this" and this is
"almost" true.
Florida law also
requires that when a
dealer has this additional
profit printed on his
buyer's order, he must not
delete it for some cus-
tomers and charge it to
others. The only way he
can effectively eliminate
this extra profit is by
reducing the quoted
selling price of the car by
this amount, but keep the
dealer fee amount that is
printed on the buyer's
order.
This is rarely done,
because dealers do not
pay their salesmen or
managers a commission
on the dealer fee. If you
demand the price be
reduced to compensate
for the dealer fee, it cuts
the salesman's commis-
sion.
Dealer fees range from
$500 to $900 and a typical
salesman's commission is
25 percent, so cutting it
could cost the salesman
$125 to $225.
Florida law requires
that a dealer include the
dealer fee in the price of
an advertised car. This is
often ignored by dealers
advertising on the Inter-
net and in direct mail
because it is below the
"radar screen"' of the
attorney general's office.
In newspaper, TV and
radio ads, one car is
advertised at a low price
with a seemingly innocu-
ous designation such as
No. 1234B (the stock
number of the car) all
there to tell the buyer that
only one car is available
at this price.
Another common tactic
is a fine print disclosure
at the bottom of the ad
reading "price good on
date of publication only."
The odds of being able to

On Cars


the advertised price are
not good. Not only is
there only one car with
the price good for just
one day, but the salesman
receives no corfimission
or a much smaller com-
mission, if he sells you
this car.
My advice is not to pay
much attention to adver-
tised car prices. Do your
shopping on the Internet


or by telephone. Insist on
an "out the door" price
including everything
except sales tax and license
tag.
If buying a new car, get
several "out the door"
prices quoted on the exact
same year, make, model
and accessorized car.
Two very good free Web
sites to get information on
dealer costs and fair retail
prices are www.kbb.com
and www. edm unds.com.
Consumer Reports is also
an excellent source of
product information and
pricing, but there is a fee
for its Web site.

Thursday night lights


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer
No one likes the referee at a
football game.
Apparently, very few want
to be referees, either.
The Treasure Coast Officials
Association has been in need
of new officials for the last few
years, and in turn the 2007
season has been hit hardest.
Many weeks varsity football
games, a Friday night tradi-
tion in most communities,
have been forced to be played
on both Thursday
nights because of a lack of ref-
erees to call the games.
At the beginning of the sea-
son, St. Lucie and Martin
counties, and Vero Beach,
were asked by TCOA to all
play at least one Thursday
night home game. The
schools all complied, making
officials work a little more
than normal.
But the extra work has help
ensure that all games are
properly staffed.
"Unfortunately over the last
couple of years we lost some
of the officials that we've had,"
said TCOA president Dick
Daniels. "Obviously, we like to
do the Thursday night
games... but probably the
year after next we get back to
Friday night games."
To think the lack of staff is
the only reason for a less than
traditional football schedule
would be false. In 2004 Jensen
Beach High School opened
up in Martin County. Three
years later Treasure Coast
High School did the same in
Port St. Lucie.
And with the increase in
population on the Treasure
Coast came the need for new
public high schools.
With more schools, come
more games on Friday nights
for TCOA to staff, causing the
organization to be put in a
bind.
Each football game,
whether it is varsity or junior
varsity, must have at least five
officials to run properly, and
six are preferred. TCOA has
approximately 55 officials


who are qualified to work a
high school football game,
but not just any new official
with a passing test score can
ref a varsity game.
Football officials typically
work for two years on junior
varsity and PopWarner games
before they are allowed to
step foot on a varsity field.
This ensures the organization
gets the most seasoned offi-
cials on the job for the games
that matter most.
"Of the 55 (officials), there
are realistically 34-35 that I
feel comfortable to put on
varsity field," said TCOA foot-
ball commissioner Steve
Smith. "The nights I have six
games, I get a little stressed."
With the anticipated lack of
help, and plethora of work,
Daniels and Smith have made
a conscious effort to recruit
new blood, and recruit heavy.
Often parents and fans like
to yell from the stands about a
bad call, but very few times do
they actually know what they
are yelling about, said Smith.
The biggest suggestion he has
to offer, is if you really want to
make sure the call is correct,
take the test and sign up to be


an official.
Posters have been placed
around other sports games
and activities where sports
minded residents would be.
So far, the plan has worked
with nearly 17 new football
officials this season.
But it will still be two sea-
sons before those new offi-
cials will see a varsity field,
and with the constant ver-
bal beating referees get from
coaches each week, there is
no promise all 17 will stay
that long..
So for now the TCOA is
workingwith with what they
have and hoping to get back
on a regular work schedule
as soon as possible
"Unfortunately, I think
Thursday nights are here to
stay for a while," Smith said.
"Indian River (County) is
looking to add a new high
school in a few years and
they want another in Martin
(County), the number of
schools isn't going to go
down. I don't see us migrat-
ing backward too much
quite yet."

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 "My CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your etpectat
customers. r


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.

We need to add
to our team in all

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
towers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.

Tournament pulls out all stops


for LPGA women players


he ladies are having a
party to finish off their
season, and we've
been invited.
From Nov. 14 -18 the
ladies of the LPGA Tour will
once again hold their year-
ending, limited-field ADT
Championship in West Palm
Beach.
The ADT features the top
32 ladies from the women's
tour vying for the presti-
gious title at Trump Interna-
tional Golf Club. Once
again, the winner will walk
away with a check for $1
million, the largest in the
history of women's golf!
Last year's ADT presented
us with high drama with. the
first-ever playoff in profes-
sional golf.
The format remains
unchanged for 2007. The
first cut will be after 36
holes with 16 players
moving on to Saturday's
round. The second cut will
come after 54 holes and see
only eight players tee it up
for the $1 million on
Sunday. A sudden death
playoff will settle all ties,
and each of the eight
finalists will start with a
clean scorecard on Suriday.
The final round will be
played in four groups of

her spot atop the World
Golf Rankings and add the
ADT to her already impres-
sive resume'.
Normally, when the ladies
tee it up every week, they
aren't given the red-carpet
treatment that their
brothers enjoy week in and
week out on the PGA Tour.
This event is the exception
to the rule.
You see, Donald Trump
plays host and he pulls out
all the stops in an effort to
not only show off his $40
million Trump Internation-
al Golf Course, but to give
the ladies a taste of being
treated like the true profes-
sional athletes they are.
The ladies are treated like
royalty. Trump gives each of
them a BMW courtesy car
for the week and offers
them rooms at his exclusive
Mar-a-Lago Club, complete
with spa treatments and
massages. He even goes so
far as to make sure they
have their own brand of golf
balls to practice and warm
up with. These are treats
that the ladies seldom see
on tour.
In keeping with the spirit
of the event, several
charities will receive a good
portion of the proceeds
from ticket sales. Ronald
McDonald House Charities
and The Children's Place
ard Home Safe are just a
couple of those who will
receive a check courtesy of
the tour, the volunteers and
those attending the event.
The ADT Championship
i s a relatively new event on
the ladieS' calendar. First
held in 1996, it wasn't until
2001 that the event arrived
at Donald's place. Karrie
Webb captured the title the


a life of victory. Create new
l ife and forms by going
into your inner space. Do
daily devotions, meditate,
say affirmations or com-
mune with nature and find
a little quiet time each day.
The potential of the
human spirit for creating
and sustaining life is vast.
Fulfill your destiny. Don't
compare yourself to
others. Be brave, live free.
You can do it. No one else
can do it for you. Then
when you feel the inner
peace and passion, take
care of your own and
family needs first. Then
give back. Help those who
encouraged and inspired
you on your journey. Pass
the torch of freedom to the
next generation. This is an
awesome life well lived.
Your dreams and visions
are now being realized.
You have found your true
riches. The sweetest news
is the best is yet to come.


first year here with Annika
Sorenstam taking the title
in 2002 and again in 2004
and 2005.
The course is tough, with
water on half of its holes
and elevation changes
seldom seen in Florida. Add
blustery winds and U.S.
Open-quick greens and you
have enough trouble to
leave the even the most ill-
tempered superintendents
grimacing.
As difficult as conditions
are, the course is set up to
challenge the best ladies in
golf, without embarrassing
them with overly penal
slopes, rock-hard greens or
rough so tall you can't even
see the ball.
The 17th hole, with its
spectacular waterfall
backing the green, will give
many players fits. The water
is usually bounded by a red
line, making it a lateral
hazard. This week however,
the same area will be
marked with a yellow line,
forcing the players who hit
shots into the water or atop
the waterfall (trust me, I
witnessed this a couple
years ago) to go back to the
tee and try it again.
One thing the ladies will
learn while here is just how
wonderful it is to have the
true star-athlete treatment.
With ticket prices at just
$50 for all four rounds, or
$20 for any of the first three
rounds or $30 for Sunday's
pinnacle, there is no reason
not to watch the ladies and
benefit some worthy
charities.
If you plan to spend the
week, you should consider
the Terrace Badge for $70.
This gives you unlimited
admission for the entire
week and a nice spot on the
patio to relax and enjoy the
golf while sipping a refresh-
ing beverage or three.

the ADT Championship,

Treasure Coast Top 5

BY MATT DEWHURST
AND JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writers

Hometown News welcomes you to this week's ver-
sion albeit waterlogged of the Treasure Coast
Top 5.
Five games were postponed Friday night because
of inclement weather with several others barely
reaching completion because of the elements, lead-
ing to an even more off the wall Week 8 poll.
1. Vero Beach (6-1) After its soggy performance,
Vero Beach suffered its first loss of the season at the
hands of Jupiter Friday night. The Indians' attempt
to capture the District 7-6 title was thwarted at
every turn by the Warriors, who dominated in all
facets of the game:
We were tempted to slide Vero down, but didn't
feel right about placing a two-loss team at No. 1. The
Indians must rebound this week against Seminole
Ridge if it hopes to reach the playoffs.
2. Martin County (5-2) The Tigers escaped with a
30-27 win against county rival Jensen Beach this
week. It's possible that Martin County entered the
game in body but not in mind, already looking down
the schedule to Okeechobee.
But the fact that a one-win team like Jensen Beach
nearly pulled the upset is food for thought.
Are the Falcons that good? Or are the Tigers that
soft?
We contemplated moving the Tigers up a slot over
Vero, but just couldn't do it. Martin County will just
have to wait until next week to see if they get a shot
at the top slot, but one thing is for sure, a better per-
formance in Week 9 is the only way to do so.
3. Fort Pierce Westwood (6-2) Nipping at Martin
County's heels are the Panthers, who are coming off a
superb showing against Okeechobee,
Westwood got 175 yards and two touchdowns from
Javian Evans in the 24-7 win and are seemingly getting
stronger as the season progresses.
The Panthers play Sebastian this week.
4. South Fork (2-3) Thanks to some crazy weather
and time-crunched scheduling the Bulldogs continue
to hold steady at No. 4 despite having two games post-
poned this season. Their Oct. 5 contest with Atlantic
was postponed because of weather and this past
week, their homecoming game versus Treasure Coast
had the same thing happen. Entering this week, the
Bulldogs will prepare to play three games in one week,
and four in a 12-day span. We're pretty sure we will get
a better idea of whom the Bulldogs are when the rain
finally lets up Tropical Farms in two weeks.
5. Centennial (2-4) Centennial also was a victim of
weather this past week. This might have been the best
thing for the Eagles, who are in desperate need of a
win.
That's it for this week, sports fans. We would like to
thank you for the numerous e-mails we have received
from our faithful readers commenting on our polls. It
is good to know our tireless work is not in vain.

Do you agree? For questions or comments, contact John or Matt at
