Jet center expansion stays

Commission ties increasing office, hangar space to
FAA discussions on Witham Field runway issue


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
STUART Walking a
tightrope between citizens
clamoring for less jet traf-
fic atWitham Field and the
Stuart Jet Center's desire to
expand, the Martin Coun-
ty Commission ruled in
favor of neither side Nov.
13, choosing instead to
postpone the issue for at
least six months.


The Stuart.Jet Center is
seeking county permis-
sion to construct 87,400
square feet of office, hang-
er and storage space,
41,000 of which is to
replace hurricane-dam-
aged buildings.
The only two commis-
sioners expressing a firm
opinion either for or
against the project were
Commissioners Doug
Smith and Susan Valliere,


the same ones who dis-
sented in the 3-2 vote.
Although they both were
against postponing the
issue, they took opposite
stances, with Commis-

Martin County


Library System to


celebrate 50 years


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
In celebration of its 50th
birthday, the Martin County
Library System is planning a
birthday bash of several
concerts and. special events
between Sunday, Nov. 18
and Monday, Nov. 26.
In commemoration of the
milestone, the system has
published a special edition
book, "A History of the Mar-
tin County Library System."
Co-authored by MCLS
Humanities Librarian
Luann Justak and former
executive director of the
library foundation Nina Tay-
lor, the 60-page book details
the growth of the county's
library system and includes
more than 30 photographs.
Mrs. Taylor, a resident of
Martin County since 1962,
says that the county's library
system has been extremely
successful because it
receives the necessary back-
ing of the citizenry.
"Martin County's libraries
have always been people-
driven," she said. "People
have also wanted them,
supported them and used
them."
In return for 50 years of
patronage, the library sys-
tem will start the birthday
festivities early, beginning
with a 3 p.m. concert on
Sunday, Nov. 18 at the Blake
Library featuring the Porch
Dogs, one of Florida's pre-
mierCajun/zydeco bands.
The official birthday cele-


bration begins at 10 a.m. on
Saturday, Nov. 24, followed
by a special video premiere
of "Book to the Future," a
light-hearted look at the his-
tory of the county's library
system. Produced by the
Martin County television
channel team. The 30-
minute production features
a cast of 16 local actors and
was filmed at the Blake
Library, the Stuart Feed
Store museum, the Elliott
Museum and other loca-
tions.
Cake will be served begin-
ning at 11 a.m. at the Blake,
with each of the county's
branch libraries cutting
their own cakes from 2 p.m.
to 4 pm.
That same day, the Blake
Library will host the free
Kazoobie Kazoo Show with
Rick Hubbard at 3 p.m. In a
show that's fun for the whole
family, Mr. Hubbard plays a
guitar, banjo, steel drum,
slide whistle and, of course,
a kazoo. Each member of
the. audience also gets a
kazoo and is invited to play
and march along in the final
song.
At 7 p.m. on Nov. 24,
library fans can take a trip
down memory lane with the
music of Peggy Lee, per-
formed by Mindy Simmons
and her jazz combo.
The celebration continues
the next day, on Sunday.

Local writer forges


love story out of war

Retired Stuart attorney publishes
memoirs for forgotten war heroes


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART For Bob Par-
enti, 65 years of buried
World War II memories
came rushing back upon
discovering a box of love let-
ters in his garage.
The letters were written to
his girlfriend Laurie in
Michigan, who would later
become his wife after his
return to the United States.
They chronicle the view-


point of a teenage army foot
soldier facing one. of the
world's biggest conflicts.
A former Michigan resi-
dent and retired Stuart
attorney, Mr. Parent was
unsure at first what to do
with the dozens of letters his
wife had saved through the
years. Then, at the encour-
agement of his co-workers
and family members, he

Congress revives faltering


Indian River Lagoon plan


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
MARTIN COUNTY -
Plans to restore the ailing
Indian River Lagoon stalled
for seven years. Now, the
effort.to repair the estuary
and surrounding wetlands
has been revived.
, Environmentalists, who
have spent much of the
decade advocating for
lagoon cleanup, said federal
funding would help reverse
damage caused by decades
of development along the
lagoon shore and runoff
from neighborhood lawns
and agricultural fields.
Congress freed $1.4 billion
for lagoon restoration last
week. The $23 billion Water
Resources Development Act
also includes $2 billion to
repair the Everglades, and
money for more than 900
U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers projects nationwide.
Lagoon restoration calls
for reservoirs to catch water
during the rainy season,
ensuring a supply of water
for farms and homes. Man-
made and restored wetlands


would filter pollutants from
runoff. And the decades-
long project will try to dupli-
cate the gentle flow of water
through wetlands surround-
ing Lake Okeechobee.
"Once you get the water
right, the habitats and the
wildlife will all fall into
place," said Mark Perry,
executive director of the Stu-
art-based Florida Oceano-
graphic Society and co-
chairman of the Everglades
Coalition.
While theWater Resources
Development Act lan-
guished in Washington, the
South Florida Water Man-
agement District forged
ahead with Everglades
restoration and lagoon
cleanup.
During that time, water
quality dropped and devel-,
opment continued along the
lagoon shore.
"We're sick fewer days
now, but when we're sick,
we're sicker than we were
before," said Jim Egan,
director of the Palm Bay-
based Marine Resources
Council, a group that moni-
tors lagoon water quality
and advocates shoreline


restoration.
Canals dug to control
flooding also channel nitro-
gen-rich fertilizer and fresh-
water into the brackish
lagoon, lowering the salt
content and triggering algae
blooms on the lagoon sur-
face.
"For the last 50 years,
we've been draining off this
stormwater away as fast as
we can, any way we can,"
said Kevin Stinette, execu-
tive director of Indian River-
keeper, a Jensen Beach envi-
ronmental group.
Muck clouds the water,
choking the seagrasses that
form the, foundation of the
lagoon 96osystem and foul-
ing oyster beds. The U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
plans call for the removal of
almost 8 million cubic yards
of muck from the southern
lagoon.
"We've lost a lot of habitat
because of muck," Mr. Egan'
said.
To catch runoff before it
reaches the lagoon, there are
plans to build reservoirs,
restore more than 50,000

soon be heading to Florida to help clean up the Everglades

Dr. Jennifer Vanderberg,
psychologist and forensic
coordinator for the facili-
ty, said GEO practices the
"Recovery Model" of treat-
ment of seriously mentally
ill patients arrested on
criminal charges who are
in need of assessments for
competency before trial.
"Our primary goal is to
provide psychiatric thera-
py combined with psy-
chotropic medication
supervision in order to
stabilize the patient and
evaluate when they are
competent to go to trial,"
Sshe said. "We offer profes-'
sional, immediate treat-
ment to prepare residents
who are found by the
courts to be incompetent
to proceed to trial and
those declared not guilty
by reason of insanity."
The 175-bed, private
mental health center
houses adult male resi-
dents. Admission to the
center is court ordered
from judicial circuits in
central and south Florida.
The facility uses a struc-
tured approach to encour-
age the patient to become
aware of his or her illness
and accept responsibility
for his or her own recov-
ery.
The target for getting
patients ready for court is
three months of monitor-
ing and treatment.
However, patients found
criminally insane are
sometimes held for six

months to 'a year before
they have been restored to
competency and can be
sent to trial.
Approximately 70 per-
cent of the patients are
residents who have been
processed and deemed
incompetent to proceed to
trial by the, mental health
court.
About 30 percent have
already gone to court and
were judged guilty and
insane at the time of the
offense or riot guilty by
reason of insanity.
Depending on the nature
of the crime and the
charges, a risk assessment
is needed before releasing
a patient.,
By a law known as the
Baker Act, a patient
deemed too dangerous to
be released can be held
involuntarily. Some
patients are admitted with
a non-restorable brain
disorder such as severe
mental retardation, or
with an organic brain syn-
drome, but those cases are
rare.
Placement becomes an
issue for those with vio-
lent behavior.
.Bob Quam, the executive
director of the forensic
treatment center, said .a
diversion program was
initiated for the mentally
ill on the Treasure Coast
arrested on criminal
charges or detained
through Florida's Baker
Act.
Through a collaborative
-effort between the legal
system, mental health
professionals and the cor-
rectional system, a pro-
gram was set up to care for
mentally ill patients in a
medical environment
rather than jail.
Mr. Quam said there is a
significant homeless pop-
ulation in St. Lucie Coun-
ty, and many are mentally
impaired.
"Some of them get
arrested-for such things as
trespassing, shoplifting
because they're hungry, or
loitering and end up Iin


trouble with the law. They
don't mean to commit a
crime and don't really
belong in a jail cell; they
need medical treatment
which we are here to pro-
vide," said Mr. Quam.
Through the combined
efforts of the state attor-
ney's office, the public
defender's office, county
and local nonprofit agen-
cies the mental health
court mandates certain
services to help mentally
ill offenders.
In some cases, with the
consent of the victim, the
defendant is given a con-
ditional release with con-
stant case management, a
coordinator, and a foren-
sic specialist to monitor
the patient after dik-
charge.
"This treatment center has
been a lifesaver for us," said
Al Zimmerman, a
spokesperson for the Flori-
da Department of Children
and Families.
. "In January we had a wait-
ing list of about 300 mental-
ly ill people incarcerated in
county jails who were
incompetent to stand trial.
Since the center opened,
those people have been
treated and processed
through the court system."
The facility employs 280
people, including 56 secu-
rity officers certified by
the state. Residents are
housed in 16-bed units
with one patient per room,
one nurse and two mental
health technicians.
For every two units there
is a shared basketball
court. Patients have
access to telephones and a
library. Some can even use
a gym and a recreational
room.
"It's still in the works,
but we are planning to
offer one computer, which
residents can use after
earning the privilege," she
added. "We are also start-
ing a work program, so
that residents can earn
their own money. This also
gives them a sense of con-
trol over their own future."

County ponders new fees to offset
potential $19 million budget shortfall in '08

Facing a major budget shortfall next year if Florida vot-
ers approve a property tax reform bill in January, Martin
County administrators are proposing the implementa-
tion of new fees for certain county services.
If voters approve the tax reform, Assistant County
Administrator Taryn Kryzda said it could cut $10.5 mil-
lion from the county's tax collections. Coupled. with
more than $9 million in contractual salary raises and
increased operating expenses, that would cause a 2008
budget shortfall of some $19 million, she told the Martin
County Commission on Nov. 6.
As a result, County Administrator Duncan Ballantyne
asked commissioners to consider the implementation of
new fees for storm water drainage and fire rescue serv-
ice, among other suggestions.
. Most of the commissioners said the fees would appear
to citizens as a way in which to get around the voter-
mandated tax reform measure, if passed next Jan. 29.
Instead of the new fees,,Commission'Chairman Michael
DiTerlizzi said he prefers to refuse the consideration of
about $8 million in unfunded mandates currently
required by the state and thus apply that money towards
the potential shortfall.
The commission will discuss these and other propos-
als during detailed budget talks on Nov. 19.

Most county fire engines understaffed
compared to national standards

More than half of Martin County's fire engines operate
with, only two firefighters aboard, compared to the
National Fire Protection Association's recommendation
of four firefighters per engine.
The president of the International Association of Fire-
fighters Local 2959, Lt. John Davidson, believes that
staffing six of the county's 11 fire engines with only two
firefighters could pose safety risks to both the public and
firefighters.
When a fire engine manned by,just two firefighters
arrives at the scene of a fire, safety regulations require
they wait until another truck arrives on the scene before
trying to enter a burning building. For this reason, coun-
ty fire officials always dispatch several fire engines and
an ambulance when called to a fire.
Mr. David said that the understaffed fire engines could
lead to potential lawsuits to the county if firefighters are
injured responding to a fire before a backup engine has
arrived.
Neighboring St. Lucie County places three firefighters
on each fire engine, according to the St. Lucie County
Fire District.

Domestic violence center
closed after stabbing

The SafeSpace Domestic Violence center was tem-
porarily shut down on Nov. 1 after investigators say the
center failed to follow state regulations that might:have
been prevented a resident being stabbed to death by a
fellow resident on Oct. 31.
Marilyn Francine Hooks, 25, of Port St. Lucie, is'
accused of the murder of 26-year-old Milaus Almore of
Fort Pierce after an argument with her and another resi-
dent Rhaleen Still, 21, of Stuart. The latter was also

a lack of a second while
the latter, in whose district
the airport lies, vehemently
opposed approving the con-
struction.
"I am not interested and I
will not support the motion
on the floor," Commissioner
Valliere said. "I believe it
(the project) should be
denied."
Commissioner Lee
Weberman spent about 45
minutes submitting docu-
ments for review and read-
ing from parts of the coun-
ty's comprehensive plan. He
drilled county staff on the
issue of the main runway's
length, asking if the fact that
it was actually longer than
the 5,000 feet mentioned in
the comprehensive plan
would make it non-compli-
ant to the plan.
Although the controver-
sial runway extension com-
pleted in 1998 has no rela-
tion to the Stuart Jet Center's
petition to expand, a local
opposition group, the With-
am Airport Action Majority,
has been actively lobbying
commissioners to both
decommission the runway
extension and deny Stuart
Jet Center's request.
The commission voted 3-
2 in 2006 to decommission
that stretch of the runway
but is still trying to win Fed-
eral Aviation Authority
approval before taking
action. It also appointed
Commissioner Sarah Heard
as a mediator between the
FAA and the county to try
and reach a compromise on
both the runway protection
zone and the runway safety
area, which the FAA deemed
non-compliant after 'the
runway expansion.
Commissioner Weberman
urged his fellow commis-
sioners to postpone a deci-
sion on the Stuart Jet Center
until county staff could pre-
pare an impact study on the
effects of the proposed
expansion and Commis-
sioner Heard could meet
with FAA officials.
Before the vote, Martin
County residents spoke out
both for and against the
project in a last-minute
effort to sway the commis-

acres of wetlands and create
9,000 acres of manmade wet-
lands.
"Unless we control runoff,
we're going to take the muck
out of the river and put it
right back in there," Mr. Egan
said.


With its vote, Congress
handed President Bush his
first veto override. Mr. Bush
vetoed the bill Nov. 2, despite
protests from Florida law-
makers and fellow Republi-
cans. In his veto message to
Congress, the president said
the bill "lacks fiscal disci-
pline."
Both Florida senators,
Democrat Bill Nelson and
Republican Mel Martinez,
supported the legislation.
"I agree with the president
that this bill lacks fiscal disci-
pline," Mr. Martinez said in a
statement. "But we also have
to recognize that the longer
we wait for the federal gov-
ernment to meet its Ever-
glades commitment, the
more expensive the cost."
U.S. Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-
Palm Beach Gardens, took
local officials on a boat tour
of the polluted St. Lucie River
last month to raise awareness
about the proposed cleanup.
He voted for the bill.
"This is the first step to see-
ing our children swimming
again in the Indian River
Lagoon," he said in a state-
ment.
Though Congress author-
ized funding for the Ever-
glades and the lagoon, the
money must still be allocated
in annual spending bills.
Congress usually passes
water resources bills every
two years. This is the first
such bill since 2000.
"We've been waiting since
2000 for the partnership
between the state and the
federal government," Mr.
Perry said.

sion. Several members of
WAAM, and the group's
leader Dave Shore, argued
against the project, while
local business leaders
argued in favor of it.
The executive director of
the Jensen Beach Chamber
of Commerce, Ron Rose,
warned commissioners that
denying Stuart let Center's
request would add to Martin
County's "growing anti-
business reputation."
Tammy Simoneau, execu-
tive director of the Martin
County Economic Council,
asked commissioners to
view the issue in the context
of the current economic
downturn.
"I want to ask you to look
at the bigger picture," she
said. "The aviation industry
has provided wonderful
jobs. We need to do whatev-
er we can do to keep the air-
port viable."
Most of the commission-
ers expressed concern upon
hearing Airport Director
Michael Moon say that
Witham Field is operating at
about one-third capacity,
wanting guarantees that
Stuart Jet Center's expan-
sion plans wouldn't con-
tribute to increased jet traf-
fic.
"There's no way to figure
that out," said Mr. Moon. "If
the hangers being con-
structed and the offices
being constructed are mere-
ly to house aircraft and busi-
nesses already at the air-
port, then it probably
wouldn't increase the traf-
fic."
The commission won't
take up the Stuart Jet Center
proposal again until at least
May 6, 2008. Commissioner
Smith told fellow commis-
sioners that their action to
postpone the issue was irre-
sponsible.
"We're going to be right
back here in six months
time on the same issue," he
,said. "We have done this
before, and we'll have the
same speakers get up again.
There's a lot of money
involved .here and we're
bleeding things dry, which is
exactly what these residents
want to do."

We want service

Over 80 employees in Martin County make over $100,000
a year, yet we don't have enough fulltime lifeguards to keep
our beaches safe.
The other day at Santa Lucia beach in Stuart I almost wit-
nessed a boy drown because of the undertow.
It is immoral to lower the level of public safety so that
some administrative assistant can make $147,000 a year.
Today I wrote a $2,500 check to property taxes.
My wife and I work hard for this money.
We want more lifeguards, more librarians and more park
maintenance workers.
We want service, not bureaucracy, waste, fraud or abuse
During election time we are going to make some people
pay politically for ignoring us.

Thanksgiving turkeys

I have something to say to the consumers who will be
purchasing turkeys this Thanksgiving.
I work at a large Florida-based supermarket chain and,
sadly, each year we dispose of many turkeys that are
returned.
Our policy states that we cannot resell any cold, frozen or
meat item that has left the store.,
It doesn't matter if it was gone five minutes, or five hours.
It is damaged.
We hear every reason/excuse, such as, my wife wants a
'smaller one, the company I work for gave us one, or our
guests canceled on us. The list goes on and on.
Please consider the size of the turkey, or other meat item,
you will need for your guests.
If you bought a small one, buy an additional small one.
If you are unsure about anything, we have many knowl-
edgeable staff members that can assist with the size, prepa-
ration, and even recipes. Just ask.
If you bought one, and someone else is bringing one, the
best thing you can possibly do is donate it to a friend,
neighbor, or church.
That might make all the difference in the world for some-
one else's Thanksgiving.
And lastly, the turkey itself will not have died in vain.

Educate your children

This is meant for the parents or guardian of children.,
You spend thousands of dollars every year to insure you
car. You spend hundreds of dollars a year for oil changes on
your car to protect your engine. You spend. thousand on
;:homeowner's insurance to protect your home.
Why don't you spend a little time and educate your chil-
dren about the proper way to walk on the sidewalk, or in the
street if need be and be aware of what's going on around
them?
Once again. I almost witnessed a tragedy in front of my
home.
Don't keep blaming other people. Don't blame the police


Grammy Guru asks for support for troops
with homemade cookies

I have a letter to share, and if you don't read my column I
hope you'll read this.
I'm sure this will touch you as it did me.
Pay attention Barbara E, this one's for you.
Barbara E wrote to me about her 41-year-old son, Matt F.,
who felt he had to serve his country after Sept. 11.
Leaving a wife and four children, he joined the Army Reserves
and is now serving in Afghanistan as a company commander.
When the soldiers return from a mission, packages from
home,. especially those containing homemade cookies are
received with joy.
Barbara E has found my chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies
packed in a food saver arrive in fine condition.
She asked me to remind people that you can do something
for our troops.
In her words, "The best of America are doing their best."
I received an e-mail from John and Kathy Brown when I men-
tioned this in a column. Their Web site is operationadopiasol-
dier.com
They have formed an organization, and have been sending
packages to our troops since 2002.
Five hundred packages a month are sent. They have an elab-
orate system to keep track of the comings and goings of our
troops.
Mrs. Brown suggested putting a piece of bread in with the
cookies to keep them fresh.
Airtight containers are a must.
Since shipping is expensive they also accept cash donations
to cover the cost.

department. Don't put the blame on it being too dark out.
Spend a little time to educate your children.
It wouldn't hurt.

Cruise dining

I love the article in the Hometown News travel section
about cruising on the ocean.
One thing I think that should be added is that most
cruise lines these days have what they call free style din-
ing in all of the restaurants where you just come and go
as you please.
The days of assigned dining at the early 6 p.m. or the
late 8:30 p.m.seatings are pretty much over.
I think the travel section should let people know that,
and not discourage who want to eat whenever they
please, rather than at an assigned time.

It is the parents' fault

I would like to say something about the bus situation, the
kids walking to the bus stop or to the school, and the cars
parked along the sides of the roads, which is terribly danger-
ous.
On Halloween night the children, small and big, were
walking up and down the streets without sidewalks trick or
treating past 9 p.m.
My point is that the parents have to control the kids.
Halloween night was dark and dangerous, but no onr,
seemed to mind letting their kids go trick or treating for free
candy.
Let the parents watch them, or take them to school if they
need to.
if they can sit and talk and have coffee with their friends,
they have time to take the kids to school.
To me, it's the parents' fault.


They are constantly doing fundraisers to support our troops.
Addresses to contact them by mail are:
*OperationAdoptASoldier.com, 4281 Route 50, Wilton, N.Y.
12831
Florida Chapter: 7 Fieldway Drive, Stuart, FL 34996.
I'm sure you'll agree, it's people like Mr. and Mrs. Brown that
make us proud to be a part of the human race.
May God bless them, and all who step up to support our
troops.
With much love and admiration,

Protect the children

I would like to discuss an incident that happened at the
Treasure Coast Mall on Saturday, Oct. 20 at a little after 10
a.m.
As I entered Borders' outside main entrance and was
,walking towards the mall entrance, a beautiful blond tod-
dler about two-years old went tearing by in a happy and
gleeful dead-run for the entrance, zigzagging around, under
and through the displays.
I looked around and did not see any adults in sight.
I kept following him to see if he would stop by the
entrance while I got the attention of a cashier and customer
at the checkout counter.
They did not know the boy, but did not seem concerned
that he was unattended.
While making my inquiry, the baby went flying out of Bor-
ders to the main mall.
I I have a grandson his age andI knowhow fast these speed


Teachers' pay

Here's more on teachers' pay. Excuse me, I should call
them martyrs.
A hundred thousand dollars for college, I should be so
rich.
Are they in debt for life? They must not be math teachers
because that is a lot of money to spend to earn only $34,000
a year.
That's not too smart.
I live in Fort Pierce and I know many teachers who go
back north during the months of summer vacation and get
two weeks off for Christmas, and half days on Fridays.
My sister-in-law teaches in Orlando, and the assistant
principal in her school is always treating her teachers to
something.
Two weeks ago it was laser tag and lunch for all of them.
The assistant principal's benefits cover her husband, who
has none.
They chose their life. If they are really unhappy at their
job with all of its downfalls, they should change jobs.
Or do they like being a martyr.

PETA is not a panacea

I usually don't respond to rants, but this is ridiculous.
For two weeks in a rowpeople are holding up PETA, which
is Peoplefor the Protection of Animals;: as an organization
that cares for pets.
As an organization, they have a 90 percent euthanasia rate
of adoptable pets. They have an attitude of better dead than
owned.
They are a pure animal rights organization.
) See RANTS & RAVES, A7


demons can be.
I look around again and still did not see an adult. I called
to the cashier that I was going to try and get him back into'
the store.
At 61I do not run as fast as a two-year old.
I did not want to frighten him so when I was about ten feet
away, I called out "Hey little man, wait for me."
He giggled, but stopped and turned around. I told him
that his mommy was probably looking for him, and we
should go back into the bookstore anrd find her.
In the cutest little voice he said, "Yeah, OK," and headed
back into the store, where he proceeded to weave among all
Sthe racks and displays all along calling outfor his mommy.
: I could tell by the sound of his voice that he had indeed
finally found her about two minutes later.
I just walled away and continued my errands.
I was livid at this point, and had: confronted this parent I

Rants & Raves
From page A6
Animal rights is different than animal welfare. They
believe animals should have all of the rights that humans
have, and that they should not be used for food, fiber or
entertainment.
That includes keeping them as pets.
These people are the ones that are making the lives of
loving pet owners more difficult and more expensive with
the pet laws they encourage our mayors and commission-
ers to pass with false information, and outright lies.'
While I am on the subject the HSUS, which is the
Humane Society of the United States isn't much better.
They play on their name, and siphon money away that is
needed by our local humane societies.
HSUS runs no rescues or humane societies, as their
name implies. Only a miniscule amount of the millions of
dollars in their annual budget actually goes to any type of
direct animal care.
They purposely lie, and do what they must to add to
their coffers.
Begging for donations to care for Michael Vick's dogs
when the FBI had them, and they were in no way involved
is just one of many examples.
If you need help with a possible animal abuse situation,
call animal control or the local police or sheriff.
If you want to do something to actually help animals,
volunteer your time or donate to your local humane soci-
eties.
They can use the help, and you know that youi money is
actually being used to care for animals.

Response from PETA:

There are inaccuracies in this rant, starting with the
name four organization.
The writer has called us People for the Protection ofAni-
mals instead ofPeople for the Ethical Treatment ofAnimals,
hence PETA.
PETA does not euthanize adoptable pets.
Because the shelter that we operate is a last resort for sick,
severely injured, and unadoptable animals for whom a
peaceful end is the only humane option, we do euthanize
most of the animals we take in.
To state that PETA euthanizes 90 percent of adoptable
animals is false.
We definitely do not have an attitude of "better dead than
owned,"as the writer claims.
In fact, many of our staff members, myself included, are
guardians ofdogs, cats, and other rescued animals.
We do iot provide false information or lie to city council
members, mayors, or anyone else for that matter.
The allegation that we provide false and misleading
information to government authorities is particularly out-
landish, as any such conduct would be not only unprofes-
sional and unethical, but also, in many instances, illegal.
Heather Carlson

Chinese products
Americans should know by now that they are victims of
Chinese products.
Poisoned pet food, fish in our markets, birds' feathers
and lead contaminated toys were sold by the big stores
because everything is cheaper from China.
How can we protect our children, our pets and ourselves
when everything is from China?
Tortured peacocks, colorful parrots and emus are being
subjected to cruel methods of feather removal in China.
The feathers are in our big stores sold as Christmas orna-
ments and decorations.
There's a definite lack of compassion by the companies
that deal with China.


We can only be free of Chinese products if we stop buy-
ing anything marked China.

Garage sales

I want to say something to the people who have garage
sales, and put signs up to advertise them.
They should make their signs larger and have them
more visible, with larger print.
Sometimes when you are going by in the car you can't
read them.
People would do more business and sell more things if
the signs had an arrow pointing to the house, and gave a
little bit of direction as to how to get there.
Also, make provisions for parking. Put your car, or your
company car, down the street or somewhere to allowroom
for customers.

Pit bull response

This is in response to the rant regarding pit bills.
As information to your readers, Florida passed a state
law that forbids the legislation of any laws against a specif-
ic breed.
This law was passed as a response to the Miami-Dade
action.
There was recognition that pit bulls are not a specific
breed, except by one lesser known registry, but only a
group of characteristics that are displayed in many other
breeds.
There are so many of these dogs that are loving members
of families throughout this country that you would be
throwing the proverbial "baby out with the bath water."
Pit bulls are used in search and rescue, and as drug dogs
and police dogs.
Who doesn't remember Petey from the Little Rascals?
Yes, he was a pit bull.
Even one of the dogs rescued from the Fort Pierce ring
some few months ago was being considered for a drug dog
by a local force.
There are laws that cover pet abuse and dog fighting that
already on the books.
Even the Humane Society of the United States that is try-
ing to legislate our pets out of existence, agrees that laws
banning pit bulls is not necessary.
Even if every pit bull on the face of the earth suddenly
disappeared, the scum that use them to fight would switch
to a different breed.
As far as dealing with issues of dangerous dogs, most of
the toy breeds are much more vicious and bite more fre-
quently than the larger breeds, just ask your veterinarian.
No, they don't have the ability to cause a fatal attack, but
there are certainly other breeds of dogs that can fall into
this category.
Do we ban them all? If we start with this breed, where do
we stop?
There are thousands of lives lost in automobile acci-
dents per year. Do we ban automobiles?
It is the owner of the animal that is responsible, not'the
breed.
Don't we have enough laws that are meaningless with-
out adding more and destroying a lot of loved, family pets?

Who can I vote for?

Do any true Americans care about America?
We have people in Congress and the Senate and mayors
of our American cities wanting to give illegal criminals
licenses.
We have poisonous products from communist China
infecting our children
We have E-coli spreading across America in our food
supply.
Our American jobs are outsourced factories closing
down.

Should you consider


buying a hybrid car?

Editor's note: This
column originally
appeared in the Aug. 25,
2006 edition.
A7ith gas more than
$3 a gallon and the
belief that it will rise
to $4 or more byyear end,
everybody is talking about
hybrid cars.
Just in the past week, I
have been asked to speak
before the Rotary Club of
Palm Beach and the Kiwanis
Club of Lake Park/North
Palm Beach about hybrid
cars. I think I was asked.
because Toyota sells 80
percent of the hybrid
vehicles in the USA and my
dealership sells more
hybrids than any Toyota
dealer in the United States
(except California where
they have special emission
laws).
You should approach
making the decision on
whether or not to buy a
hybrid car the same way you
would on any other specific
model. Just as there are good
-gasoline powered cars and
bad, the same applies to
hybrid cars.
Some hybrid vehicles don't
get good gas mileage. The
level of technology used in
hybrid cars varies from
manufacturer to manufac-
turer. Toyota was the first to
begin investing in hybrid
technology and built their
first hybrid, the Prius, in
1997. Nissan was among the
last to realize that hybrids
are the wave of the'future,
and will introduce their first
hybrid, the Altima, later this
year (licensing the technolo-
gy from Toyota).
The most frequently asked
question on hybrids is, "Will
I save enough money on gas
to justify the additional cost
of a hybrid?"


EARL STEWART
On Cars


My answer is, "Yes, if you
buy the right hybrid from
the right dealer."
One very important
consideration is the federal
investment tax credit
available on hybrids. The
amount varies from model
to model.The highest tax
credit is $3,150 on-the
Toyota Prius. This credit
lowers the price you pay for
the Prius by exactly $3,150.
Other hybrid models have
lower tax credits. The federal
'government calculates the
tax credit based on the fuel
efficiency. The Prius is rated
the highest at 60 mpg in the
city.
The other important
consideration is what you
pay for the hybrid. Most
dealers are making up their
hybrid vehicles more than
the manufacturers suggest-
ed retail price. That's
because of high demand
and low supply.
The third factor on
whether the premium cost
of a hybrid over a gasoline
car is justified is based on
the resale value of the
hybrid. The better, higher
demand hybrid vehicles
retain their value in the used
car market better than their
gasoline powered counter-
parts.
This means when you go
to trade the hybrid in on
your next car, the trading
difference is smaller.
Hybrid cars get better gas
mileage in stop and go city
driving than on the highway.
This is because the electric
motor is used more often in

Bob Wacik of Stuart, a
regular patron of Slots of
Fun, says it's one of the
nicest and cleanest places
around.
"Where else can we go
for an hour or two and
spend $5?" he said. "It's a
great way to get out of the
house and meet people."
Kathleen Baird and her
business partner Dennis
Moren took over the estab-
lished arcade earlier this
year and immediately set
out to modernize the facil-
ities. They added new
games and changed out all
of the older machines that
spit out tickets for player
credits to the high-tech
card-reader system, mak-
ing it making it easier for
customers to jump from
machine to machine.
Slots of Fun customers
have their choice of com-
plimentary snacks and
beverages, including soft
drinks, juices, beer and
wine. A birthday party is
held every month for all

asset, she added, are its
regular patrons.
"We are very, very fortu-
nate and we have great
customers," Ms. Baird said.

everybody else, and every-
body helps each other out
and introduces them-
selves."

center and is open 10 a.m.

THE HISTORY OF THE
CLADDAGH IRISH RING
The origin of this spectacu-
lar Irish ring takes us back in
time to a small fishing village
in Ireland. The village was
called the Claddagh and that
is how the Claddagh Irish
ring got it's name. The time
was more than 300 years
ago. The boat of a fisherman
from this village was raided
by pirates and as was com-
mon in those days, the cap-
tives were sold as slaves.
One of these slaves, was
Robert Joyce, and he was
sold to a wealthy goldsmith.
Robert learned the trade
while working for his master
and never forgot his beloved
who lived in the Claddagh
village.
While toiling through slavery,
Robert Joyce made a ring
for his beloved. A few years
later he was released from
slavery and went back to his
village. He presented this
ring to his beloved and they
were soon married. This was
the first Claddagh Irish ring
and it was soon to become
one of the most significant
jewels ever made. This Irish
ring has grown in popularity
since then and is now a
respected jewel even in
countries far off from,
Ireland.

REDUCING ROLLOVERS
If you've ever wondered about the
effectiveness of electronic stability
control (ESC) systems on vehicles,
the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration has some statistics
for you to ponder. Comparing other-
wise similar SUVs with and without
stability control, those with stability
control were involved in 67% fewer
single-vehicle crashes. As for pas-
senger cars equipped with ESC, they
were involved in 35% fewer single-
vehicle crashes when compared with
the same model sold in prior years
without the safety technology. These
statistics show that there is little
question that, as the technology
advances, vehicles become safer. If
consumers have the option for these
safety features, they should take
them to protect themselves, their
families, and passengers in other
vehicles.
This column about rollovers and
the roll that electronic stability
control systems play in reducing
their occurrences is brought to
you by ADVANTAGE FORD OF
STUART. Our dedication to your
safety is evident in all the servic-
es we provide. Located at 4000
S.E. Federal Highway, we know
that your vehicle is counted upon
to convey not only yourself, but
your family as well. Call
772.781.6540 with any ques-
tions. When you are considering
a new purchase, our policy is
that the sale is only the begin-
ning of our relationship with
customers.
HINT: Different manufacturers
have different names for their
stability control systems.

In an earlier column, I
wrote of my onboard
experience, which was
phenomenal and unforget-
table.
Now for my Alaska
experience.
Where to start? I guess
Anchorage would do, since
that was the real start to
my wonderful cruise
journey through Alaska.
We met our cruise
representatives at the
Anchorage Hilton and
boarded our motor coach
for the 2-1/2 hour ride to
Seward, where our ship
was docked.
We drove along the
scenic Seward Highway,
which runs along Cook
Inlet, a National Forest
Scenic Byway. We were
fortunate to have a very
informative driver who
gave us details of the areas
points of interest, from the
purple fire weed along the
road to the Dall sheep that
sit halfway up the very
steep hillsides.

PATTY TOPPA
Travel columnist


She explained that the
mudflats, which extend
into the inlet at low tide,
look very inviting, but are
like quicksand, and of
Turnagain Arm with its
incredible bore tides that
are the second highest in
North America.
Once in Seward, on the
south-central part of the
Kenai Peninsula, we did
not see much because we
went directly to the ship.
What we did see was a
bustling quaint little
harbor town with boutique
shops and art galleries.
Directly across from the
ship was the beginning (or
the end) of the Alaska
Railroad, which stretches
470 miles to Fairbanks.
The scenery of Mount
Marathon along Resurrec-
tion Bay upon departure
was breathtaking.
This was just the begin-
ning of one incredible site
after another. The hanging
glaciers with their reflec-
tions of the blue-gray sky
looked as though they just
stopped and were sus-
pended in air.
Day two.was a day of
cruising. Mid-morning we
listened to an informative
enrichment lecture on
glaciers by Alaska destina-
tion specialist. By midday
we cruised into Yukatat
Bay to Hubbard Glacier,
Alaska's longest tidewater
glacier. It is 76 miles from
Mount Logan to Disen-
chantment Bay at the
Head of Yukatat Bay and
ends with a 6-mile-wide
face at the waters edge. We
watched while it calved
icebergs from its edge. It
felt surreal.
The next stop was
Juneau. We decided on a
city tour, with a trip to
Mendenhall Glacier, a
tongue of ice stretching 12
miles from the Juneau Ice
Field to Mendenhall Lake.
We were much closer to
this glacier than the other.
We could see the ice caves
at the water's edge. We
witnessed salmon spawn-
ing and, although we did
not see them, others
further downstream
watched a mother bear
and her cubs swooping up
salmon.
We were fortunate to
have beautiful weather to
this point, and our next
morning was not much
different. We awoke and
opened the drapes to our
veranda and were sur-
prised to see the moun-
tainside so close I felt I
could touch it.
Our ship was docked in

Skagway and the pier ran
along the mountain. There
were many shore excur-
sions offered, from dog
sledding and mountain
climbing to the White Pass
& Yukon Route Railroad.
The latter was our choice.
The railroad, built in
1898 during the Klondike
Gold Rush, took us along
narrow tracks through
tunnels, along cliff-
hanging turns and over
bridges to White Pass
Summit. The narrator
pointed out historical
sights, glaciers and
mountain ranges along the
way.
The next stop was Sitka,
a quiet little town with a
Russian influence. We
chose to walk around the
town and visit the many
museums, churches and
Totem Square. It was such
a beautiful day that we
walked up to the Sitka
National Historical Park.
Then it was on to
Ketchikan, a bustling town
with as many as five ships
in port. We embarked on a
city and wildlife tour. We
viewed bears trying to
scoop up salmon at the
local hatchery. They were
quite entertaining.
Our tour guide took us
off-the-beaten path, where
we could view many
eagles, both in their
enormous nests and flying
high above the trees. We
visited Saxman Village
where we found Totem
Park and watched the
natives carving out totem
poles.
On the last day, we
cruised the inside passage.
A beautiful, calm day to sit
back and watch Mother
Nature go by. It was a
wonderful end to an
incredible journey that we
will never forget.

The person you are does make a


difference to other people


M y lifetime friend,
Pat Smith, who
lives in Baltimore,
recently sent me this
beautiful heart-touching
story and I felt the need to
pass it on to you.
A teacher in New York
decided to honor each of
her seniors in high school
by telling them the
difference they each
made.
She called each student
to the front of the class,
one at a time. First, she
told each of them how he
or she had made a
difference to her and the
class. Then she presented
each with a blue ribbon
imprinted with gold
letters that read, "Who I
Am Makes A Difference."
Afterward, the teacher
decided to do a class
project to see what kind
of impact recognition
would have on a commu-
nity. She gave each
student three more
ribbons and asked them
to go out and spread this
acknowledgment cere-
mony. Then they were to
follow up on the results
in about a week.
One of the boys in the
class went to a junior
executive in a nearby
company and honored
him for helping him with
his career planning. He
gave him a ribbon and
put it on his shirt. Then
he gave him two extra
ribbons and said, "We're
doing a class project on
recognition, and we'd like
you to go out and find
somebody to honor, give
him a ribbon, then give
him the extra ribbon to
acknowledge a third
person to keep this
acknowledgment cere-
mony going. Then please
tell me what happened."
Later that day, the
junior executive went in
to see his boss, who had
been noted, by the way,
as being kind of a
grouchy fellow.
He sat his boss down
and he told him that he
deeply admired him for
being a creative genius.
The boss seemed very
surprised. The junior
.executive asked him if he
would accept the gift of
the ribbon and would he
give him permission to


put it on him.
His surprised boss said,
"Well, sure."
The junior executive
took the ribbon and
placed it right on his
boss' jacket just above his
heart. As he gave him the
last extra ribbon, he said,
"Would you do me a
favor? Would you take
this extra ribbon and
pass it on by honoring
someone else? The young
boy who first gave me the
ribbons is doing a project
in school and we want to
keep this recognition
ceremony going and find .
out how it affects peo-
ple."
That night the boss
came home to his 14-
year-old-son and sat him
down.
"The most incredible
thing happened to me
today," he said. "I was in
my office and one of the
junior executives came in
and told me he admired
me and gave me a ribbon
for being a creative
genius. Imagine. He
thinks I'm a creative
genius. Then he put this
ribbon that says "Who I
Am Makes A Difference"
on my jacket above my
heart. He gave me an
extra ribbon and asked
me to find someone else
to honor.
"As I was driving home
tonight, I started think-
ing about who I would
honor with this ribbon
and I thought about you.
I want to honor you. My
days are really hectic and
when I come home I
don't pay a lot of atten-
tion to you.
"Sometimes I scream at
you for not getting good
enough grades in school
and for your bedroom
being a mess. But some-
how tonight, I just
wanted to sit here and,
well, just let you know
that you do make a
difference to me. Besides
your mother, you are the
most important person
in my life. You're a great
kid and I love you."
The startled boy began
to sob and sob. He
couldn't stop crying. His
whole body shook.
He looked up at his
father and said through
his tears, "Dad, earlier

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
John Patrick McGlone, 13, of Port St. Lucie is helped onto a horse at Full Circle Therapeu-
tic Riding by owner Linda McClendon, Lisa, his mother, and volunteers Cheryl Caldwell
and Michelle Caler (not shown). John Patrick lives with cerebral palsy and has been com-
ing to the Palm City ranch for nearly 10 years.


Equine bonding in Palm City


Horses bring healing to special
needs children, adults


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
PALM CITY As long as
she can remember, Linda
McLendon has loved horses.
Growing up in Rio, she had
a 1956 equestrian calendar
she cherished, which pic-
tured a different horse every
month. She dreamed of hav-
ing her own horse one day.
That calendar is a cher-
ished possession today,
along with the eight horses
she keeps on her five-acre
ranch in Palm City known as
Full Circle Therapeutic Rid-
ing.
Today, Mrs. McLendon, 60,
uses most of her horses in
equine assisted therapy for
special needs children and
adults. Since she began in
1993, she estimates close to
600 kids have come to the
ranch for therapy, from as far
away as Loxahatchee and
Vero Beach. The best thing
for her, she says, is seeing the
changes in their self-esteem.
"It's pretty basic what we
do here," she said, "but it's

effective."
One of Full Circle's regular
riders is 13-year-old John
Patrick McGlone, who's been
coming regularly to ride at
the ranch since his family
moved to Port St. Lucie
almost 10 years ago.
Diagnosed with cerebral
palsy as a premature baby,
John Patrick has been partici-
pating in equine therapy
since he was 18 months old,
according to his mother Lisa.
She explained that John
Patrick's connection with
horses gives him something
to talk about and helps level
the playing field with his
schoolmates when they dis-
cuss football and other
sports he can't participate in.
"Compared to when he
was little and now, he's a
whole different kid," she said.
And he definitely has no
problems with self-esteem.
In fact, he flirts with many
of the volunteers at the
ranch, and slyly smiles when
reminded that some of them
are already married. John
Patrick is also a member of

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
hl c..: r I,,..w Yourcustomers 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 expectat;
customers.


II our culture
sounds like onp
that tits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.
561*844"3461
We need to add
to our Team in all
departments...
sales, service,
parts. oody shop,
and accounting.


Virtually every car dealer Of educa
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a SOphiSti(
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 tlUCh high
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is prog: -awmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plairi
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.

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 1 eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
tomrers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in .u.,, i i ii,: nerv
on, level or used car. You can do the
same.


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

Boy Scout Troop 445 in Port
St. Lucie and recently earned
his small boating badge with
the power squadron, his
mother added.
The youngster is a favorite
therapy patient of ranch vol-'
unteers such as Hobe Sound
residents Michelle Caler and
Cheryl Caldwell. Pointing to
him sitting erect in the sad-
die, Ms. Caldwell said he's
made great strides in recent
months.
"When I started here a year
ago, he couldn't even sit up
here by himself," she said.
Ms. Caler's been volunteer-
ing at Full Circle for 11 years
now. She said that she herself
was diagnosed as learning
disabled in the eighth grade
and so she identifies with
what many of the children
are going through emotion-
ally.
"I really like working with
these kids," she said.
Another rider, three-year-
old Jarrett Lane of Fort Pierce,
has been riding at Full Circle
for about six months now.
Although he'd been diag-
nosed with autism, his moth-
er Jessica said that equine
therapy had never crossed
her mind until they attended
a birthday party that featured
pony rides. That day, she
says, Jarrett was almost
uncontrollable, and she
pleaded with him to no avail
to take the pony ride. Just
before the owner packed up
the animal, he finally agreed.
"Being on that horse
changed him completely,"
she said. "He became so calm
and serene. All of a sudden,
he kind of slowed down and
began looking around him."
The owner of Full Circle
says equine therapy provides
Jarrett valuable sensory
input.
"Jarrett seeks sensory
activity," she said. "When he's
on the horse, he's getting sen-
sory input.:.. [H]e's able to
concentrate on his language.
He talks to the horse and tells
it what to do."
Both Mrs. McLendon and
her volunteers emphasize
that Jarrett has come a long
way in six months, he now
answers their questions
about his surroundings and
the horse rather than simply
mimicking their words. The
ranch owner emphasized
that it takes teamwork and a
slew of volunteers to make
the therapy possible.
"It takes an army," Mrs.
McLendon said.
And she's always looking
for new recruits, as well as
donors, since the $40 cost to
the families per session doe
not fully cover the expenses
associated with the therapy
and boarding the animals.
The ranch is supported, in
part, by the proceeds from
an annual Palm City golf
scramble held at the Ham-
mock Creek Golf Club. This
year's tournament, held on
Oct. 13, raised approximate-
ly $18,000 for the ranch, Mrs.
McLendon said.
Tournament chairman Ed
Weinberg emphasized the
importance of equine assist-
ed therapy for children like
John Patrick and Jarrett.
"When you see the smiles
on these children's faces as
they connect with the hors-
es, you're filled with feelings
of pride and hope," he said.
"As the father of a child with
special needs, I can say with
certainty that hope is
absolutely essential to the
parents and children in this
program."
For more information on
how to volunteer or make
donations to Full Circle
Therapeutic Riding, call Mrs.
McLendon at (772) 283-2355.

Ms. Hooks entered the center on Sept. 22 and had been

No charges for Tequesta homeowner
who killed intruder in August

The state attorney's office will not prosecute a Tequesta
man who shot and killed a mentally ill neighbor trying to
break into his house.
Three months after taking over the Tequesta Police
Department's botched investigation of the homicide, the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office decided not to charge
James Fantin in the killing of his neighbor, 41-year-old Paul
Mantwill.
Mr. Mantwill began banging on the door of the Fantin res-
idence about 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 2, and while his wife dialed
911, Mr. Fantin proceeded to punch out part of the shutters


on a window and open fire on the intruder, who he said he
didn't recognize at the time.
Mr. Fantin failed to tell Tequesta police officers who
arrived on the scene that he'd shot Mr. Mantwill, leading the
officers to think that the victim, who was prone to seizures,
had fallen on an ornamental fence. As a result, they treated
the issue as a medical situation and not a crime scene, even
dismissing another neighbor's reports of hearing gunfire.
Aftei the ic tirn died later at the hospital, a medical exam-
iner discovered the gunshot wounds and notified police.
When sheriff' investigators asked Mr. Fantin why he failed
to tell police he'd shot the intruder, he said he wasn't asked
and just wanted to be with his family.
Neither of the Tequesta police officers involved in the
original imnestigation had ever worked a homicide scene. Lt.
Michael Mlorrill resigned during the sheriff's office investi-
gation and Sgt. Zed Albrecht was placed on administrative
leave, but ha; since returned to active duty.

From page A7


this type of driving and the
hybrid battery is charged
each time you step on the
brakes. This regenerative
braking converts the heat of
friction from braking to
electrical energy.
You also charge your
battery when you simply
take your foot off the
accelerator because the
deceleration of the electric
motor (which actually
drives the wheels) also
powers your battery.
At this time, you cannot
also charge your hybrid
battery by plugging it into a
wall socket, but this tech-
nology is being developed
so you will charge your
battery even more for better
gas mileage.
This is the technology that
the head of Toyota had in
mind when he stated that
his goal was to build a
hybrid that would go from
NewYork City to Los


Angeles on one tank of gas.
Hybrid batteries are very
expensive. The Toyota Prius
battery costs $3,000 to
replace, but it is covered
under warranty for 10 years
or 100,000 miles. I have
been selling Priuses since
2001 and never had to
charge a Prius customer for
a battery.
The final consideration in
buying a hybrid has to do
with "feeling good about
yourself."
My hybrid owners know
they are taking a small but
important step to free the
U.S. from its energy
dependence on the Middle
East. They know that the
emission from their hybrid
is virtually pollution free
and they are doing their
part to reduce the threat of
global warming which
might affect their children
and grandchildren.

the Blake Library on Nov. 7.
The book is dedicated to
the memory of the com-

proceeds going toward
war memorials. The
memoir details his experi-
ences on the European
front during World War II

written home to his
sweetheart Laurie, now his
wife of 61 years.

to the unsung soldier fre-
quently forgotten after war's
end.
Published this year by
Trafford Publishing, "A Story
of Love and War" tells the
tale of World War II through
the love letters sent home to
the girl he met at a USO
dance, and who he hoped to
live to see again.
Mr. Parenti's goal with this
book is to bring awareness
to the plight of both veter-
ans and today's soldiers
serving in Iraq. For this rea-
son, he's dedicating most of
the royalties from the sale of
the book to the establish-
ment and maintenance of
public memorials to local
veterans.
"I want this to go to our
Memorial Park," he said. "I


want young people to have a
statue,.. to actually be able
to see a soldier there."
The letters to his girlfriend
begin in January 1944 with
his shock at being yanked
out of an army officer col-
lege program to be shipped
off to the front lines of the
war, and faithfully continue
until his return to the Unit-
ed States in December 1945.
SFilled with original photo-
graphs, maps and other
illustrations, the book is a
portrayal of what life was
like for the young men
across the country ripped
out of their familiar sur-
roundings and sent off to
fight a war on the other side
of the globe.
Mr. Parent said the letters
brought back memories to


him that he'd unknowingly
suppressed.
"There's no doubt that sol-
diers block out memories,"
he said. "I had told my fami-
ly that I'd never seen a con-
centration camp. Then, I
find the letter where I told
Laurie about seeing Bergen-
Belsen near Hanover, Ger-
many."
Mr. Parent held a book
signing at Blake Library on
Nov. 7 as part of the Cele-
brating Our National Trea-
sures event.

secret

revealed

at Shiloh
A s rehearsals con-
S tinue for "Cinderel-
L a" and I learn
more about the theater,
performers share stage
secrets with me.
One of the traditions is
the "Gypsy" robe. The
tradition started in 1950,
when "Call Me Madam"
opened on Broadway.
The robe is presented to a
member of the chorus --
never to a leading per-
former -- an hour before the
curtain goes up.
The recipient must have
shown a positive attitude
and been a help to others in
the cast. The recipient puts
on the robe, which has
memorabilia from past
shows on it, and circles the
stage three times, allowing
each performer to touch it
for good luck.
The robe is worn before
each performance, and
when the run ends, the
lucky person keeps the robe
until the next show.
Don't forget to order your,:
tickets for the show, which
runs at the Lyric Theatre
from Nov. 28-Dec. 2.

Pink Tie Gala raises
funds for breast
cancer patients
There are many
fundraising events taking
place now, but one, a
theatrical event, is close to
my heart as a breast cancer
survivor.
Pink Tie Friends, a not-
for profit organization that
provides financial assis-
tance to breast cancer
patients who are unin-
sured or underinsured, will
hold its annual gala on
Nov. 17 at the LyricThe-
atre.
"Passions for Life" is an
original musical stage
production; I attended the
first event, in 2005, and it
was a moving, funny,
poignant tribute to those
who have fought the
disease. Tickets are $50;
call the Lyric box office at -

Week of 11-16-2007

Aries-March 21-April 19
Remain focused on your goals. Be highly selective
in your pursuits. Let your spirit prevail and go with
your gut instincts. They will steer you forward to
new and improved relationships. Your finances
will soon improve. A new lucrative project will
appear soon. Stay calm when others are losing it.
Your life is moving. Not too fast though.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your professional responsibilities continue to
increase. Keep delegating and making room for all
the new. Your time is becoming more valuable.
You are a proven wiriner. Why? Because you hang
in there and never quit until the job is done. Your
fine sense of duty and loyalty does not go unno-
ticed. You have more admirers than you know.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your positive attitude has brought you safely


the Sunrise for two shows on Nov. 24.
I spoke to Matthew Lord, the cre-
ator of the group, about their busy
last year and what they have in store
for audiences with the new show.
If you are not familiar with their
brand of good music and silliness, 3
Redneck Tenors, which also includes
a baritone and a bass, are all classi-
cally trained musicians.

through many past obstacles. It will continue to
bring you through present ones. Keep honing your
skills and talents. Stay sharp. Your mind and heart
are open. See your present project through and
you will begin to reap greater rewards and achieve
the financial freedom you seek and are entitled to.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Your natural passion for life is a positive influence
on others around you. Keep reading, studying and
learning. Stand up for your beliefs. Your power of
communication is especially strong right now.
State your causes and then be patient. You have a
strong sense of direction. Be sure to balance all
this responsibility with a little fun every day. Life is
good. You make it that way.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Seize every moment like there is no tomorrow.
Worry only saps your energy and burns you out.
You know what you want. The only thing holding
you back is yourself. Be bold. You have the dream
and desire. Your faith is being tested. Review your
plans for the rest of the year, finish the main proj-
ects and reap the harvest. Now it's time to sow
new seeds;

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Saturn in Virgo gives you an extra sense of justice
and responsibility. You are well known for doing
the right thing. You will soon be called upon to
.help others who trust your judgment. The main'
reason for this is that you let your heart and


instincts guide you. You always come through
with flying colors. Your life is Oscar quality. You
deserve an award.

Libra-Sept.23-Oct 22
Even when things are up in the air, you hang in
there. You simply refuse to let past challenges
hold you down for long. This is why the universal
power entrusted you with balance. You have the
necessary faith, trust and patience to make things
happen. You are a winner in the game of life. Your
greatest potential is still just ahead.

Scorpio-Ot. 23-Nov.21
Move ahead with that new idea. With the sun and
Mercury in Scorpio you have plenty of energy to
push ahead. It's like you have guardian angels
watching over you and cheering you on. With the
intelligence, heart and spirit working as your shin-
ing qualities, you set a wonderful example for oth-
ers around you. Thanks for your light and guid-
ance.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec.21
You do your best when you are psyched up and
on a natural high in life. When your heart is in it
and you are having fun, there is no stopping you.
You have a natural love for life in all its forms.
When you take the time to commune with nature,
you renew your spirit and feel fully alive. With this
zest, you sail through and make all your dreams

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Artistand peace activist Huong had her final showing of new artwork in her Jensen Beach
location before closing the doors and moving her exhibits to Washington D.C. and New
York next year. Huong will also keep her home base in Miami. She is seen in front of a
painting that depicts children crying from being left fatherless as one of the many conse-
quences of war.


Martin County artist is


leaving downtown


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Huong, the international-
ly renowned artist whose
autobiographical work
touched the hearts of thou-
sands in Martin County, is
leaving downtown.
After four years of display-
ing intensely moving and
personally cathartic oil
paintings in vivid themes of


war and peace here, the
Vietnam war refugee-
turned-artist moved her
gallery to Miami with plans
for shows in New York and
Washington D.C. next year
in an effort to spread her
message of peace even fur-
ther.
"I want to thank all the
local residents, the peace-
makers, who had the
courage. to stand in the


streets with me and raise
their voices," Huong said. "I
leave Stuart with memories
of joy and of the challenges.
It made me grow and made
me stronger."
To show her appreciation
of the community, the artist
- whose 600-foot-long,
interactive Peace Mural
originated in her Jensen
Beach museum unveiled
her newest work, a study of
justice and torture, at a
farewell event Nov. 15 at her
gallery, located at 1970 N.E.
Jensen Beach Boulevard.
The Peace Mural, which
will be complete in 2008,
will then be displayed along
with the new work at the
new Art, War and Peace
Museum in Miami, 1620
Washington Ave., from Dec.
1 to Jan. 30.
And after hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne 2004,
she was forced to close her
free Art, War and Peace
Museum and open a smaller
gallery a few doors down on
Jensen Beach Boulevard.
In Jensen Beach, former
Art, War and Peace Museum
curator Sandi Wicina said
that Huong's "artbiographi-
cal" work created a dialogue
and a place for people to
discuss the issues of war
and peace.
"I feel badly .she's not
going to be here, but this
isn't the end of Huong," she
said. "I'm sorry she's leaving
here, but I can't wait to hear
about the things she's going
to do. She is going to be
heard."

CHARITY HAIR-CUTTERS

Left to right: Carolyn Wilsey, Debbie Hollister, Judy Schilver, Pat Harrison, Ninette Cassavant, Ginger Kunkle, Trish Gib-
son, Tasha Chen, Maureen Champion, and Sandra Griffiths participated in Treasure Coast Haircut Day for Pink Tie
Friends on Nov. 3, at the Cost Cutter Salons in Palm City and Jensen Beach. After all the hair was swept up and the grand
total determined, Cost Cutters were able to make a donation in the amount of $3,500 to Pink Tie Friends.


Tenors
From page B1


The story is an excuse for
the guys to wear outrageous
costumes and burst into
song; in one evening they
run the gamut from Elvis to
evening gowns, from vin-
tage television theme songs
to the Village People.
Last year's performances
at the Lyric in November
were so successful that the
group came back in April,
and this year, they are bring-
ing their new Christmas
show with them.
In the first half, they con-
tinue the saga of the Billies,
but in the second half, it's
pure Christmas.
"My shows are about
singing," Mr. Lord said. "The
music and arrangements
have to be fantastic. First
half is scripted, as we help
the beautiful Edna Mae find
the Christmas spirit, and we
sing spoofs of secular
Christmas songs like 'Santa
Baby,' but the second half is
a real pop Christmas con-
cert. You can bring your
mother or your children. It's
an adult show without adult
language, an adult family
show. Kids love the slapstick
and the theme songs, and
adults won't worry if anyone
will be offended. They will
hear the best singing they've
ever heard and they will
laugh their butts off."
The past year was a big
one for the group; they were
invited to appear on "Ameri-
ca's Got Talent," and that
attracted the notice of Las
Vegas.
An extended stay at the
Luxor is in the works, and
Mr. Lord is writing another
show, "Broadway Bound,"
that will be part of a trilogy
that includes all three
shows.:
Ultimately, Mr. Lord
hopes the road really does
lead to Broadway, and he


feels his shows offer some-
thing for everyone.
"The music is serious," he
said. "The comedy is as
funny as possible."
Mr. Lord created the
group as a spoof of all the
tenor groups that proliferat-
ed after the original group
featuring Luciano Pavarotti,
Placido Domingo and Jose
Carreras, and I asked Mr.
Lord about Mr. Pavarotti's
recent death.
"I was a huge fan of the
original three tenors," he
said. "He was the greatest
singer of my generation and
probably the greatest tech-
nical singer of all time. He
was singing brilliantly up to
his death. There'd be few


opera houses left in the
United States (without him)
He popularized it and he
made it cool."
3 Redneck Tenors bring
their "Christmas Spec-Tac-
Yule-Ar" to the Lyric Theatre
on Nov. 19, at 7 p.m., on Nov.
20 at 5 and 8 p.m. and on
Nov. 21 at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Tickets are $38 and $33. Call
the box office at (772) 286-

They bring their "New
Musical Adventure" to the

for two shows, at 4 and 8
p.m. Tickets are $38 and $33.

Homemade apple, pecan pies


complete the Thanksgiving feast


H ello, smart shoppers!
Hope you had a good
week.
Last week, I gave you the
recipe for Shaker pie crust.
This wee, we will make apple
pies. If you've never tasted a
homemade apple pie, you've
never tasted the real thing.
The biggest job in making
apple pie is peeling and
slicing. When we first came
to Florida in 1974, I couldn't
seem to find any good.
apples at a price I wanted to
pay. Certain apples, such as
Macintosh, are not suitable
for pies because they turn
into applesauce.
What always bothered me
about apple pies is that
unless you first poach the
apples which is more
work once the pie was
baked, there was a large
space between the filling
and the top crust.
I tried something that was
so successful I make my
apple pies no other way.
Canned pie-sliced apples are
wonderful. I don't mean pie
filling that is seasoned. I
mean just apples in water.
They are made by many
companies and sold in most
supermarkets.
No time for stories today,
holiday recipes are a must.
Next week: It's turkey time!

Smith.
1-1/2 (20-ounce) cans
sliced apples, drained; or
five to seven tart apples,

sugar and 1/2 Splenda
sugar substitute
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
(packed)
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Dash nutmeg
Dash salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter or
butter substitute
Roll out dough to fit a 9-
inch pie pan. Trim even with
rim of pan. Mix all ingredi-
ents except butter together

effect with your fingers or
press all around with the
tines of a fork.
Using scissors, cut slits or
curved slits to resemble a
tree branch with leaves in
the top crust. Brush crust
with milk and sprinkle
generously with sugar. Do
not put milk or sugar on the
edges.
Bake on a cookie sheet in
the lower third of a preheat-
ed 425-degree oven for 10
minutes. Lower the tempera-
ture to 350 degrees and
continue baking for 30
minutes or until crust is
golden and filling is bubbly.
To save pie for future use,
prepare but do not slit crust
or brush with milk. Freeze
unbaked. To use, thaw for
three to five hours on
countertop or overnight in
the refrigerator. Bake as
directed. If the pie is still
frozen, simply bake a little
longer until bubbly.
To make many pies: Triple
the Shaker piecrust recipe.
The following will make
approximately one large,
four medium and one small
apple pie, along with enough
dough for at least two


Pumpkin pies and some pie
crust cookies.
7 (20-ounce) cans sliced
apples, drained
4 cups sugar or 1/2 sugar
and 1/2 Splenda sugar
substitute
3/4 cups dark brown
sugar, packed
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Juice of 1-1 /2 lemons
2 tablespoons butter or
butter substitute for each
pie
Follow previous instruc-
tions. Do not mix ingredients
with apples until crusts are
prepared, the sugars and salt
will produce too much
liquid.

Using a whisk, beat eggs
slightly. Add next five
ingredients, then nuts. Pour
into pie shell. Bake on a
cookie sheet in a preheated
400-degree oven for 15

Hope for those with macular degeneration P


Sge-related macular
S degeneration is the
L leading cause of
blindness in people older
than 60.
Until recently, there have
been no effective treat-
ments for this eye disease.
Within the last few years,
two drugs, Lucentis and
Avastin, have been
approved for the treatment
of the wet form of age-
related macular degenera-
tion or wet AMD.
However, there has been
nothing available for
sufferers of the dry form,
which is much more
common,.accounting for 90
percent of cases.
Now a Stuart-based
ophthalmologist and
researcher is among
investigators around the
country who are enrolling
patients in a clinical trial to
test the safety and efficacy
of a medication for dry
AMD.
I spoke with Ronald
Frenkel, a voluntary
associate professor of
ophthalmology at the
Bascom Palmer Eye Insti-
tute, a part of the Miller
School of Medicine at the
University of Miami, about
the upcoming trial and
about a new diagnostic tool


that helps doctors assess
the damage caused by
AMD.
"This new technology is a
new way to visualize the
retina," Dr. Frenkel said.
"We are able to look at the
retinal pigment and check
the health of the eyes in
ways we could not before.
You see things very starkly;
it's almost like wearing
night-vision goggles. We're
better able to tell whether
the disease is progressive or
not."
For the clinical trial, Dr.
Frenkel is seeking 20-30
patients with dry AMD who
are between 50 and 89.
Participants will receive
examinations, treatment
and medication at no cost.
Since this is a clinical
trial, some patients will
receive placebos, or sugar
pills, instead of the medica-
tion. In this way, researchers
can determine if the
medication is effective.
While there are several
visits in the beginning,
follow-up is spread out so
that people who do not live
here year-round are still
eligible. The entire test
period is two years.
"This medicine is being
tested against geographic
atrophy, which is what


i .






SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
causes patients with dry
AMD to lose their vision,"
Dr. Frenkel said. "Patients
can lose the ability to.read
or recognize faces. Those
are the people we want to
look at."
In addition to the medica-
tion or placebo, all trial
participants will receive a
specific formulation of
supplements, known as the
AREDS formula, which is
available without a pre-
scription and has been
shown to reduce the
progression of the disease in
people with intermediate
stage dry AMD. The forma-
tion includes zinc, vitamin
C, vitamin E, beta carotene
and copper.
Patients should consult a


Physician before beginning
the regimen to see if it is
appropriate for them.
People 60 and older should
have regular eye exams to
check for changes that may
not yet affect vision.
For those concerned
about getting macular
degeneration, Dr. Frenkel
has two pieces of advice.
"Don't smoke," he said.
"We don't know exactly why,
but that is a good predictor
of who may getmacular
degeneration. Regular eye
examines can catch the
disease early, and early
diagnosis is important."

clinical trial offenretinide
for the treatment of dry
AMD, callAnn Marie
Guiliano at the East Florida
Eye Institute at (772) 287-
9000.

age-related macular degen-
eration, visit the Web site of

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Let your actions speak for you more than your words. You
don't have to seek approval from others. Make your own deci-
sions: Doing what you truly love is the secret to your personal
and professional success. Say, no when your gut instinct tells
you. This inner guidance is never wrong when you hear and
trust it. It also earns you respect. You have a lot of it.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
The moon in Aquarius gives you an emotional edge this week.
Follow your heart and you will see success in your decisions.
Many blessings are on the way. You have unlimited potential
when you focus on your main goals. You are old-fashioned yet
forward thinking. With strong basic values working in your life
you continue to shine and make it look so easy.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
One of your strong gifts is your persuasive way with people.
You thrive when under pressure. This has been a good year for
you. The great growth this year is preparing you with much
more to come. The gratitude you feel makes the universal
spirit want to bring more blessings your way. It's a payback for
all the good you have shown to others.

YTears ago, we never
thought about it.
During the summer,
it crosses our minds;
however, when the weath-
er finally turns cool, we.
tend to forget about it.
I'm speaking of using
sunscreen.
As golfers, we spend a
lot of time in the elements
subjecting our skin to
tremendous danger. If you
don't already take precau-
tions to prevent skin
damage, the time to start
is now. It's time to pay
attention to your skin,
make an effort to protect it
and allow yourself to have
a healthier future.
Every morning we put
on deodorant or antiper-
spirant. I envision a day
when applying sunscreen
to your face, neck, arms
and so forth becomes just
as routine as brushing
your teeth.
One in five American


will develop skin cancer
during his or her lifetime
and more than 1 million
Americans are diagnosed
with skin cancer each year.
Statistics show that
someone in America will
die of melanoma every 67
minutes.
Of all cancers, skin
cancer is the most com-
mon and nearly half of all
Americans who live to age
65 will develop skin cancer
at least once. Fortunately,


it is also the easiest to
prevent and cure if detect-
ed early.
The key to preventing
and curing skin cancer is
early detection and using
sunscreen to protect your
skin. The most common
warning sign of skin
cancer is a change in the
appearance of the skin,
such as a new growth or a
sore that will not heal.
Studies show that just
one sunburn doubles your
risk of developing skin
cancer. Children are
especially at risk. On
average, anyone younger
than 18 has three times the
sun exposure of an adult.
Melanomas are especial-
ly deadly, as they tend to
spread quickly throughout
the entire body. Basal and
Squamous cell cancers are
much less deadly, hut can
leave your skin disfigured.
If you know that you are
going to be spending time
outside, be sure to apply
sunscreen at least 30
mInultes prior to the

activity. It's alsobest to
reapply every two to three
hours or immediately after
getting out of the water.
While any sunscreen is
better than none, experts
recommend using at least
a 30 SPF rated sunscreen.
One place many people
forget to protect is their
lips.
We now have lip balm
with sunscreen available.
Just as your lips can dry
out and chap during the
cool, dry winter months,
they can also burn from
the sun any time during
the year.,
As golfers, we tend to
ignore the sun, especially
when it isn't hot outside.
We feel that a simple cap
or riding in a cart protects
us from the worst the sun
has to offer. This simply
isn't true. In fact, as much
as 80 percent of the sun's
rays will penetrate the
clouds, mist or even fog.
Watch the pros prepare
for their rounds and you
will notice they all protect
their skin.
Nick O'Hern is especial-
ly diligent as he coats
every exposed inch of skin
before he begins his warm
up.
Sun damage causes
premature aging, wrinkles,
age spots and dry skin.
None of us want to age,
much less age faster, than
nature intended. Look at
some of the older guys on
tour and you can tell
which ones spent years
without protecting them-
selves.
The most often used
excuse for not putting on
sunscreen is that it will
leave your hands greasy
and make holding onto the
club difficult.
Companies have found
ways for sports-happy
people to apply sunscreen
without dirtying their
hands. Sprays are one of
the most convenient
methods for application. I
happen to prefer the stick.
It looks like a large tube of
lip balm and goes on with
just a swipe. I feel that I
get better coverage with
the stick and it fits neatly
into my bag.
For extra protection for
your face, neck and ears,
wear a hat with a wide
brim, not a baseball-style
cap. There are even special
clothing products avail-
able to keep your body
cool, while covering your
arms and neck.
Our world is changing
and whether you believe
in global warming or not,
you must remember to
protect your skin.
If you suspect that you
have already damaged
your skin from sun expo-
sure or your skin shows
any warning signs, by all
means, have your doctor
or dermatologist give you
a check up.
It's time to learn how to
keep that youthful look
you work so hard to
preserve.

stressful?
A: We have spacious apartment
S homes and villas, designed to
accommodate your own furniture and
important items. In addition to your

The Treasure Coast

Top 5 Football Teams
BY TOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer

Whether it is a great movie or a fantastic meal all
good things must come to an end, as does the 2007
version of the Treasure Coast Top Five.
1.Vero Beach (8-2) Like it did so many times this
season, Vero Beach,turned in another dominating
performance, this time against Olympic Heights,
winning 31-7 at the Citrus Bowl.
Fresh off claiming the District 7-6A champi-
onship on Monday, the Indians showed signs of
fatigue in the first quarter, but turned it on in the
second, scoring 17 unanswered points to take a
comfortable lead into the locker room.
The Indians got contributions in all facets of the
game, including 111 yards and two touchdowns
from sophomore running back Stevie Wallace.
Next up forVero Beach is the regional quarterfinal
against Lake Worth.Vero Beach beat the Trojans 41-
14 earlier in the season and hopes to get a repeat
performance this week.

2. Fort Pierce Westwood (8-2) The Panthers got
some much deserved rest this week after claiming
the District 13-4A championship in a three-way
tiebreaker with Okeechobee and Martin County.
After the Brahmans ended Martin County's play-
oFf hopes with a 7-0 outcome, Westwood got a 4-
yard touchdown run by Jerrell Washington and
then held on fora 7-0 decision of its own to take the
crown.
The Panthers host \West Boca Raton in the region-
al quarterfinal with the chance of moving deeper
into the playoffs.

3. South Fork (7-3) -After earning its first district
championship since 1998 with a. 49-24 win over
John I. Leonard on Nov. 2, the Bulldogs wrapped up
the regular season with a 42-35 win over Martin
County.
South Fork's Willie Walker put on a show all
evening, rushing for 170 yards and four touch-
downs-two in the fourth quarter.
It was South Fork's fifth-straight Martin Bowl win
and it completed a remarkable regular season for
the Bulldogs who will now host Palm Bay in a
regional quarterfinal matchup on Friday.


4. Martin County (6-4) The Tigers saw its up-
S and-down season come to an endwith another dis-
heartening loss to the Bulldogs.
Despite holding a 19-14 lead at halftime, Martin
County couldn't hold off a relentless South Fork
attack, which rushed for 417 yards in the game.
On the upside, Martin County did receive career
days from several players, including Lyle Danken-
bring, who scored five touchdowns to go along with
his 170 yards, and quarterback Richard Shiller who
completed 12-of-17 passes for 129 yards.

5. St. Lucie West Centennial (4-6) The Eagles
ended the season on a high note by beating city rival
Treasure Coast 39-12. Senior Dustin Bergstol ended his
high school career with a flurry, throwing for three
touchdowns while running for another to lead Centen-
nial to the win.
Despite-the loss, kudos goes to Treasure Coast. After
failing to win a game last season, the Titans were much
improved, going 3-7.
That's it for this season. Hopefully, our area teams will
T? make a splash in the playoffs and show the entire state
SLINE! what Treasure Coast football is about
