Emergency fees raised for out-of-county residents

Commissioners strive to cut costs and increase revenue sources


BY DONALD RODRIGUE

MARTIN COUNTY -
Needing to balance the
county budget in the light
of an upcoming property
tax referendum, Martin
County commissioners
launched the first salvo of
cost-cutting moves by


Stuart

shopping

center

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART A proposed
upscale shopping center
in a newly annexed por-
tion of the city came close
to being shelved for
endangering Martin
County's marine industry.
Stuart City commis-
sioners voted 3-2 on Nov.
26 to approve the recon-
figuration of Southeast
Slater Street at the
request of the Fountains
of Stuart, but only after
the developer proved that
altering the road would
not hinder neighboring
boat manufacturers from
getting their yachs out to
U.S. 1.
According to Mark
Mathis, the land planner
for the project, the devel-
oper needed to move
Southeast Slater Street to
the northern boundary of
his property and intersect
it with Dominica Terrace
in order to make full use
of the property. That pro-
posal raised alarm bells
in the local marine indus-
try, since the boat
builders currently use
Slater to haul their huge

motorists with automo-
bile fires or' who need to
be cut out of their auto-
mobiles with a Jaws of
Life after an accident in

ty for such services.
Commissioners voted
4-1 on Nov. 27, with Com-
missioner Michael DiTerl-
izzi dissenting, to begin
charging $700 per hour
for vehicle fires and $500-
$1,000 for extracting acci-
dent victims.
The commission
approved the fees at the


request of Martin County
Emergency Services
Director Steven Wolfberg,
but Commissioner DiTerl-
izzi said the timing was
bad, citing the recent
request by Palm Beach
County for reimburse-
ment of costs for area res-
idents treated in that
county's trauma units.

New director at Molly's House

hits the ground running


Board, Sharkey
family looking
forward to
bright future
BY DONALD RODRIGUE,
Staffwriter
STUART The house
that Molly Sharkey
dreamed of for the fami-
lies of long-term hospital
patients is winding up its
11th year with a new out-
look and a new director.
Louise Murtaugh took
Over the house on Oct. 29
after spending 14 years as
the president of the
Jupiter, Tequesta and
Juno Beach Chamber of
Commerce. Her primary
goal is to spread the word
about the house, which
provides free lodging to
the families of patients
receiving treatment at
Martin Memorial Medical
Center.
The house is named
after Molly Sharkey, who
died of leukemia in 1992.
In the pursuit of her


"It should be a warm, happy place because
they (the home's guests) are in some type of
crisis. They need, to be cheered up, and Molly
would like that"

treatments, her parents
frequently had to stay in
hotels near the hospital
where she was staying,
and Molly lamented the
fact that there was not
always a 'hospitality
house where -they could
stay without cost and be
more'comfortable.
After her death, her
family and friends joined
forces to make her dream
a reality, and the three-
story, Victorian-style
building : known as
Molly's House opened in
1996.
Ms. Murtaugh empha-
sized she wants to ensure
that Molly's dream
remains alive and the
home is utilized to its full
potential.


"We're really here to
meet the needs of the:
community, and if the?
community's not aware
of the house, then our
occupancy rates will be-
low and the house under-
utilized," she said.
In her short time at the
helm, Ms. Murtaugh has
already been reaching
out to the community
and brainstorming new
ideas for funding, since,
the house relies strictly
on donations.
"More outreach needs
to be done in the com-
munity to let people
know about the house,"
she said. "We need to
extend our area to more
than we have in the past."

treatment facilities, infor-
mally known as "sober
houses," for fear of their
effect on the neighbor-
hood and property values.
During the workshop, the
county's attorney, growth
management director and
the HUD representative,
Armando Fana explained
the difficulties of regula-
tion due to the intricacies
of the federal Fair Housing
Act and the lack of state or
federal oversight on faith-
based centers like the Next
,Step Center.
Mr. Fana also reminded
commissioners of the cost-
ly litigation that ensued
after Sarasota County
attempted to enforce such
an ordinance. The U.S.
Dept. of Justice won a
$760,000 settlement
against Sarasota County in
that case.
A vote in support of
crafting a regulation ordi-
nance failed 3-2 after the
lengthy meeting in which
Commissioner Lee Weber-
man repeatedly empha-
sized his concern over the
size of the project, which
could potentially house up
to 35 residents by next
year.
"For me, it's a test of the
magnitude," he said.
"Thirty-five of anything in
a neighborhood 35
long-distance runners, 35
members of the Miami
Dolphins living in one
house, 35 truck drivers, 35
Victoria Secret models -
35 of anything in a neigh-
borhood doesn't pass the
common sense, straight
face test."
Mr. Fana responded by
saying that if the city limit-
ed densities for such treat-
ment facilities, then it
would have to limit them
for all housing in the same
area under the county
code.
"It comes down to con-
sistency" he said "If you're
zoning laws do not allow
for certain density in
areas, as long as you're
consistent across the
board, then you should be
ok."
.Some of the commis-
sioners, in particular, Mr.
DiTerlizzi, expressed dis-
may that faith-based treat-
merit facilities didn't
require e the same state or
federal oversight required
by the non-faiih-based
counterparts, which
receive either federal or
state, funding. He also
questioned Mr. Fana about
,the possibility of a sex
offender a person not
protected by the Fair
Housing Act entering a
sober house under 'the
guise of being an alcoholic
or drug addict.
"You can definitely place


::~t ':~~J:;; -
'1


restrictions on sex offend-
ers," Mr. Fana answered.
"If you have a local ordi-
nance that restricts sex
offenders from living in a
certain area, and the facility
ty happens to be located in
that area and you're apply-
ing that consistently, then
you probably wouldn't run
into a problem."
Both Commissioner.
DiTerlizzi and, Commis-
sioner Doug Smith ques-
tioned the county attorney
Stephen Fry about the pos-
sibility of regulating such
faith-based operations
since the state of Florida
currently requires no over-
sight.
"There are times when
the county can, and there
are times when the state
takes exclusive jurisdiction
and preempts any local
regulation," Mr. Fry said.,
"We have to determine if it
applies in this situation or
not."
Larry Crary, an attorney
representing a North River
Shores resident who lived
close to the Next Step Cen-
ter, quoted from a similar
case in Boca Raton, saying
that communities had a
right to preserve neighbor-
hood and family values,
"The disruption that this
type of facility brings to
this type of neighborhood
is kind of obvious from all
the uproar it's caused," he
said. "I would like the
commission to proceed
ahead with this regulation
and not be daunted by the
fact that it may be a diffi-
cult task."
Next Step Center direc-
tor Tina Cook also
addressed the commis-
sion, saying that the con-
troversy had even brought
the state's Department of
Children and Families to
the center, which ended
up giving her a positive
Review.
"They told me I had a
fantastic establishment
and that they wish that
other faith-based pro-
grams would operate as
mine had," she said. "Had
we been licensed, we
would have been abiding
by what was regulated."
She also emphasized
that her center works to
clean up a neighborhood
from drugs to keep the
temptation away from res-
idents with those kinds of
problems.
"We're trying to maintain
a community where every-
one has the common goal
of recovery," she said.
In spite of county staff's
recommendations to for-
get about crafting an ordi-
nantce. Commissioner
Weberman ultimately
made a motion 'to seek
one, which was seconded
by Commissioner DiTerl-
izzi, but failed when the
other three commissioners
refused to support it.
Afterward, the commis-
sion voted unanimously to
request state legislators to
consider the licensing of
sober houses.

REVIEW

No criminal charges for Willie Gary
The state attorney general's office will not file criminal
charges against prominent Stuart attorney Willie Gary in
a recent rape allegation case.
Mr. Gary has been fighting the allegations since late'
August after a 25-year-old Port St. Lucie woman accused'
him of rape in an.Aug. 17 incident at the Best Western
Downtown Stuart.
, According to court papers, Mr. Gary went to Stuart
police after hearing the allegations and admitted the two
had a consensual sexual relationship, but denied that it:
was rape. He later took two polygraph tests and passed,
both, according to his defense attorney Richard Kibbey.
He subsequently filed a complaint with the police?
department and a civil suit against the woman, alleging!
that the woman, her husband and a friend, offered to;
drop the rape charges for $20 million. That suit is still
pending, said Mr. Kibbey.
Five students arrested and two teachers
injured in Jensen Beach High brawl
Five Jensen Beach High School students were charged
with disrupting a school function and disorderly con-
duct after a fight got out of hand Nov. 26. on a second-
floor hallway.
When teacher and bowling coach Peter Rausch inter-
vened by restraining the young man, one of the 16-year-
old females repeatedly punched him in the face to force
him to release the boy, eventually bloodying the instruc-
tor's nose.
A female teacher was also slightly injured during the
melee, which resulted in felony charges for Shamantee
Waithe, 16, of the 4700 block of Northeast Savannah
Road.
According to the school's resource office, Martin
County Sheriff Deputy Bob Kohl, the fight apparently
started over a romantic feud between a 15-year-old boy
and some of the girls arrested.
Possum Long Nature Center
gets extreme makeover
Local landscaping firms and .other businesses
joined forces on Nov. 29 to make Possum Long Nature
Center in Stuart more lush and attractive.
Landscape architects from the Stuart-based land-
planning firm Lucido & Associates, along with work
crews from Concepts n Greenery, planted more than
1,500 plants in the five-acre urban park, which is
home to the Audubon of Martin County.
"Our goal was simply to design in harmony with the
natural environment of Possum Long that Audubon
members have cared for and cultivated," said Tom
Lucido, president of Lucido & Associates.
Audubon of Martin County President Laurie Odium
credited local business leaders for improving the park
for local residents.
"This planting will not only root a future habitat for
birds and wildlife, but it will also create a better envi-
ronment for human visitors to our urban forest," she
said.
Other area businesses that contributed to the
improvements include University of Florida Agricul-

cHawk Levy
Most come-in to buy a gift for
that special someone in their
life and they are looking for
direction as to what to buy.
Well, here's my advice when
shopping for a gift of jewelry.
You should answer a few
questions to yourself first.
The number one question is,
what is your budget? A lot of
people answer that it doesn't
matter and they'll look and
see what they like. This
almost never works because
the average consumer does-
n't know by just looking how
much something is. If you are
dealing with a well trained
jewelry professional and give
them a realistic budget, they
will ask you the appropriate
questions to fit you into the
right gift. Everyone has a
budget, be it $50 or $5,000,
If you are looking at some-
thing that is way beyond
your means, then you are
wasting precious shopping
time and emotions falling in
love with something you
can't afford. You'll find your-
self being sold something
you don't want and regret-
ting it later. Budget buying
will keep that economic
grinch from stealing your
christmas. If the person
standing on the other side of
the counter at the jewelry
store is a professional, they
will fit you budget, your
needs, and get that WOW
response you are looking for.
Hawk Levy has
been in the trade since 1989.

The vacant parcel of land between South U.S. 1 and Dixie Highway (left) and an overlay of the proposed Fountains of Stuart shopping center and the
reproposed configuration of Slater Street (right). The developer requested county approval to merge part of Slater with Dominica Terrace. Area boat
builders feared the additional turns would make it more difficult to get their huge boats out to U.S. 1. County commissioners voted 3-2 to approve the
request, with the condition that the boat builders approve the reconfiguration.

At least two representa-
tives of the industry


expressed concern to com-
missioners, who in turn
came to the defense of the
sector.
John Vance, president of
Jim Smith Boats, Inc., a
builder of tournament sport

missioners the road realign-
ment took him completely
by surprise.
"I found out about this a

week ago, when a friend saw
the public hearing signs," he
said. "I'm not here to stop
that development. I just
want to make sure that I can
move my product to the
water."
Mr. Vance expressed par-
ticular concern about the
road's new intersection with
Dominica Terrace, fearing
the turning radius would be
too tight for the big trucks
hauling the boats. That was
enough to turn Commis-
sioner Carol Waxier against
the project, who dissented
on the vote, along with
Commissioner James
Christie.
"This has really struck
deeply in my confidence of
this project," she said. "We
almost put some boat
builders out of business, and
that's a very serious unin-
tended consequence."
The developer, Charlie
Trotman, then defended the
project, saying that the road
reconfiguration would actu-
ally be an improvement for
the boat builders.

"The radius that we have on
Slater Street is more than
ample," he said. "We're actu-
ally improving the radius that
they have right now. It's a big-
ger radius on Slater and
Dominica and bigger radius
at Slater and U.S. 1."
Most of the commissioners
wanted to postpone any deci-
sion on the project until the
Montgomery, Ala.-based
developer could work out the
details with the boat builders.
Mr. Mathis claimed that noth-
ing more would be gained by
delaying the project, empha-
sizing that its planned unit
development required them
to meet the marine industry's
standards already.
"The language clearly gives
them the radius they need,"
he said.
Mr. Trotman also insisted
that his company would not
leave the industry in the
lurch.
"I'll build the radius just
like they want it to be," he
said. "We have the room to
build it."
Mark Willis, the owner of
Willis Marine company, said
he was primarily concerned
with the placement of the
poles for the new traffic sig-
nal slated for the intersection
of Dominica Terrace and U.S.
1.
"I just want to be sure that
the traffic light that is going
to be put in there accommo-
dates our needs as far as
swapping lanes there," he
said.
Commissioner Jeffrey
Krauskoph asked the county
attorney to guarantee that all
the boat builders would have


to sign off on the reconfigu-
ration of Slater Street. That
was enough to satisfy Mr.
Vance.
"As long as the condition is
written that we can see the
final design of the road, I
have no problem with them
moving forward at this time,"
he said. "We're not wanting
to make it any easier on our-
selves; we just don't want to
make it any more difficult on
us."
The commissioners voted
to annex the land encom-
passing the proposed shop-
ping center on Oct. 15 at the
request of Mr. Trotman, who
wanted to take advantage of
the city's less restrictive park-
ing requirements. Commis-
sioner Christie also voted
against the annexation, say-
ing the city should be doing
in-fill development within
the city limits rather than
more annexations.
After the vote, the local
attorney for the developer,
Linda Hake, said she was
pleased they avoided the
delay.
"That was certainly a con-
cern and we're very pleased
with the outcome," she said.
"These things are difficult, it's
very complicated and the
commissioners have a lot of
legitimate concerns that
need to be addressed."
She said that site work on
The Fountains of Stuart
could begin within the next
couple of months. The
upscale, pedestrian-friendly
shopping center will be
home to a select group of
some 50 shops and restau-
rants.

You've been researching
your family and
Entering names, dates
and other pieces of the
puzzle, but have you noted
where you obtained this
information?
Will you remember where
you found it, next month,
year, or 10 years from now?
The answer is a guaran-
teed no.
So, starting today, docu-
ment everyli ng beLfore you
get too far down the road
and have to backtrack. This
will help your research
tremendously in the future,
when you need to find that
elusive bit of information
that will help you climb the
inevitable brick wall. It also
gives other researchers
confidence in your work.
When I first started
researching, I excitedly took
down every fact I found.
Of course it was correct; it
was right there on the
official document, in the
book at the library, or
because grandmother said
so.
Fortunately, I did get
copies of most of the official
documents, or can remem-
ber where the tombstone is,
but I didn't actually docu-
ment it in my database.
There are still many facts
in my database that are not
documented properly. It is
still one of my major
downfalls, getting caught up
in the story and not wanting
to take the time to docu-
ment.
Sending your genealogy
out into the world without
citing your sources is
sending it out with no
validation.
Almost invariably, when I
find some exciting new fact
about my ancestor, there is.
no source given. This leaves
me totally in the dark.
Exactly where did this
date, spouse name, etc.,
come from?
Someone must have
known, but chances are, the
person that put the infor-
mation on the Internet, or
in the book, just copied it
from someone else, who
also copied it from some-
one.
As far as I know, it could
have, and might as well be,
just made up to suit the
purpose.


BRENDA K. SMITH
Treasure Coast
Genealogical Society

Each fact recorded for
your ancestor should be
documented with exactly
where it was obtained.
A source, regardless of
how informal, is where we
obtained the information. It
may have come from a
probate record, family Bible,
census record, or from
grandma Beth.
Everything needed for
'another researcher to find
this source should be
included. This leaves a trail
for you, as well as others
who want to follow your line
of descent.
Traditionally, sources
have. been classified as
primary and secondary. A
primary record is one
created close to the event,
by a person reasonably
knowledgeable about the
event.
A secondary record is one
that was created sometime
later. The distinction is not
always clear. So a secondary
source should always be
backed up with other
sources, a primary one
when possible.
All that said, there are no
sources that are guaranteed
as being correct. Death
certificates often contain
wrong information, with the
informant not knowing the
birth date or the names of
the parent's of the deceased.
Tombstones also fre-
quently contain incorrect
information. A relative in
our family is actually buried
under the wrong name.
This makes a strong case for
thoroughly researching
each person and finding as

Against the curfew

I must applaud Sheriff Crowder's common sense decision
o0 oppose a curfew on young people under the age of 18.
. It bothers me deeply when politicians pass laws and ordi-
nances that limit personal freedom and target a specific
group of citizens, regardless of whatever creative name it is
given.
In spite of their reasoning to "protect young people, or
add a new tool" to the law enforcement tool box, we must
not forget that the Constitution (articles IV and XIV) is very
specific about not abridging the rights of law abiding "peo-
ple" and "citizens," regardless of age. We should also
remember that the Gestapo had the "ultimate" law enforce-
ment tool box, and that our police have limits to their power
for a reason.
I am also quite confused about the hours involved in the
Stuart curfew. From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on school days?
Does that mean that my 12 year old home-schooled son
would be in violation of the law if, say, he is riding his bike
to the library during school hours?
Could he and his lunch box be searched?
Could I be fined?
It certainly sounds like the city commission passed an
uninformed, political, and poorly conceived ordinance.
I will remember that on election day.

Water crisis in Florida

What crisis? All over Florida, local governments are
implementing water restrictions and increasing water and
sewer rates. to force citizens to conserve. Yet, at the same
time, they remove beautiful vegetation and replace it with
DisneyWorld style sprinkled vegetation. Just look around in
your community, there are examples everywhere.

Please deliver on time

This rant is to Hometown News, which produces a phe-
nomenal paper, but your deliveries to Laguna Condo's off
Indian River Blvd., don't get here on time. My whole family
enjoys reading it, but we want it on time.


Make rants and raves easier

An e-mail link or Web site-based e-mail option at the top
or bottom of Rants and Raves would make the process of
contributing, contacting, and communicating with Home-
town News much easier than it is now. I had to call twice to
find out how to post.
Editor's note: Thank you for the excellent suggestion. We
will check with our technology department to see if that can
be implemented.

Say no to drugs

Drugs are for wimps afid weaklihgs. We shall take back
our communities one and then two, then four, etc. We are
on the winning team and stand tall in troubled times.
Losers are those that use illegal narcotics. They are
schmucks, and they hurt innocent victims.

More respect is needed

We need more respect toward all races, creeds and colors.
When laws are broken, the punishment must fit the crime.
We must help the victims of crime and send a message to
those who violate our laws. We must never let our guard
down. Our law enforcement officials and armed forces
must have the power they need to stop those that have no
respect for God and country.

Honor the children

We must be on guard to help our youth from those who
target them. Our children are worth saving, Do not discrim-
inate. We must learn that this nation has always honored its
children. Let Governor Crist know that we must save all of


our children from jails and show them that we care. Take all
those that threaten our children and stop those that think
they can break the laws of our great nation.

Ranter implores slow drivers to stay right

To the individual who thought they only needed to stay
right if there is a sign marked "Slower traffic keep right:" Do
you fasten your seat belts every time you drive by a sign
imploring seat belt use, then unbuckle them a mile later?
Is it OK to drive drunk as long as there aren't any anti-DUI
billboards in sight?
The signs are placed every few miles as reminders for
those with short attention spans. It's a pity that many still
don't get it.
Confused about right
versus left traffic lane laws

The reason I'm calling is because of the article you had a
while back about people riding in the left lane, and you had
an article that said the law said they didn't have to pull over
to the right.
That tonme is confused by the article you just had on that
same thing. I am just wondering. Which is right about driv-
ing in the left lane?
Do you have to get out of the left lane if you are driving
slow?

Plans to keep riding in the left lane

This is a clarification for speeders.
When driving the freeway, I often find myself in the left
lane traveling at the posted speed limit. I would very much,.
prefer to use the right lane, but inevitably when'passing an'
oncoming vehicle ramp it becomes impossible to get out of
the way due to the frequent bumper-to-bumper string of
speeding cars in the left lane.
Whenever I am approached from behind by aggressive
individuals and I am not approaching an on-ramp, I always
get over to the right as quickly as I can.
However, the speeders, always short on patience,,
inevitably begin passing on the right making it impossible
to get over as they are yet again in a close-knit string.
When I am in the left lane and approaching an on-ramp
that is thick with cars, I do not get over so that they can get
on.
Unfortunately, this is where the speeders exhibit their
most dangerous trait, which is to pass on the right at a high
rate of speed in the same lane as entering vehicles.
So to those speeders who don't understand, others are not
responsible for your road rage. You need to justify speeding,
tailgating and public endangerment speaks volumes for
your lack of responsibility for your own actions.
Since there seems to be confusion about the right lane, left
lane concept. Let me clarify it for you. The right lane is for
cars going 40-70 mph and the left is for cars going 70. Nei-
ther lane is appropriated for those who seem to think that


breaking the law gives them a legal right to be a bully.
For those who feel the need to speed, I'd.like to suggest
therapy. There you can examine why you feel the need to
control others and also examine your own inabilityto adapt
to a reasonable and safe social situation.

This ranters says, 'Huh?' to 'Ho, Ho, Ho' ban

Please tell me it isn't so, I just heard a rumor and I sure:
hope it's a rumor. With the holiday season coming upon us
with Christmas, I heard that Santa Claus can't say, "Ho, Ho,
Ho" anymore. I have no idea what our world is coming to.
(It) makes you want to move to another country. I hope this
is truly a rumor and I hope to hear Santa Claus say, "Ho, Ho,
Ho."
If there are people offended by Santa Claus saying, "Ho,
Ho, Ho," then these people should stay home (in) December
and not go shopping at the malls.
Editor's note: The ranter may want to think twice aSout
moving to another country. The story on the banning of"Ho,
Ho, Ho" came out ofAustralia. It was reported in the Herald
Sun Nov. 11 that the Westaffrecruitment firm, w1hichl supplies'
Santas across Australia was asking their Santas to tone down
the signature line
"The reason behind that is we find that in sonm cjses.trfi.
little kids can get a bit scared of the deep 'Ho, Ro Ho s'ahd we
ask them to be mindful of keeping their voices to a lower
level," said Glen Jansz, the company's operations manager.
"And kids are probably more included to understand 'Ha, Ha,
Ha'thai 'Ho, Ho, Ho.'"
Many Aussie Santas were defying the suggestion.

Don't be offended by 'Merry Christmas'

It's MIerr Christmas. Th6 birth of Christ our lord and sav-
io i. ,
Since whei did I start to offend anyone by saying. "Mlerry
Christmas."
On Dec. 18, 2005, CBS Sunday Morning commentator Ben
Stein said. "I am a Jew and every single one of my ancestors
was lenish. And it does not bother me even a lite bit when
people call those beautiful lit up bejeweled trees, Christmas
uees. I .dul't feel threatened. I don't feel discriminated
Against. That's wlat they are: Christmas trees.
It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christ-
mas' to inc. I don't think they are slighting .me or getting'
reddy to put me in a ghetto. In fact 1 kind of like it. It shows
we are all brother and sisters celebrating this happy time of
the year."

Illegal immigrants are a waste of tax dollars

Dear Editor,

You are a working couple with children. You may have
some form of health insurance, but not the best. You and
your family are legally here. You or your children come
down with a serious illness. What do voy do?
Go to the hospital. You fill out forms and are liable for all
costs that exceed deductibles. Or, if you are without health
insurance, you pay the whole tab. Go to your doctor, the
same.


Now, when an illegal Hispanic comes down with a serious
illness or hang nail, he and/or his family will go to the emer-
gency room of their local hospital. They are not asked to fill
out forms and will not be liable for one dime of the costs
they run up. They get free health care, even though they are
illegal in our country. Who do you think pays for the illegals
free health care?
. If illegals are here federal law states that you nIi-I pi o\ ide
health care, education and other welfare benel lor lithe'm.
However, no law states that you must permit then to
remain in your community. Crime aside, when yo'ur;com-
munity is free of illegal Hispanics, you will no longer waste
precious tax dollars.


Illegal Hispanics are in all all the cities in the United
States. Their numbers will increase if nothing is done about
it. The mayors of these cities will not address this problem of
Hispanics and the mayors think that it is only a federal
problem, i.e., nothingwill be done about it. ...
Something to think about next election or when reviewing
the school budget.
SonIIL'iliig nmust be done.

Sincerely,

SMichael Agius

first woman candidate for the highest office this country
has.
I would like to speak to all the women out there: It is time
to vote for our own gender.
When it comes to our health and the health and well
being of our families, we need a woman's voice to finally be
heard. Please, I am asking all the woman out there (who)
read this, to not be intimidated by your male counterparts
when they try to tell you who to vote for. Go to the polls
and vote for the best candidate to get our health issues and
home policies back under our control and not a man's.
Vote for our gender. It is time the women who earned the
right to vote to stand up and be accounted for.

Economically, U.S. Hispanics produce more
than they consume

Hello, I'm replying to the "Illegals chose to violate law"
rant.
First of all, what law are you talking about?
As far as I know, refugees from other countries are still
welcomed in the Estados Unidos de America. The Statue
of Liberty still stands: "Give me your tired, your poor, etc."
The laws you refer to have not been passed by Congress
and will never be enforced.
Second, the U.S. has 40 million Hispanic people. U.S.
Hispanics are the fifth largest Spanish community in the
world. Only Mexico, Colombia, Spain and Argentina have
more.
By 2050, it will be the largest, so get on the train or get run
over. Isn't it interesting that so few Hispanics are actually
incarcerated in our prisons?
That's because they are busy hard at work contributing to
our economy and raising their families.
It is simple economics. As long as Hispanics produce
more than they consume, they will remain welcome.
Hire one. You will be glad you did.

Homosexual reality found in the numbers

A writer wrote about homosexual reality today.
Just what is it?
A 1969 survey found that more than 40 percent of white
homosexual males and one-third of black homosexual
males had. at least 500 partners in their lifetime and an
additional one-fourth reported between 100 and 500 part-
ners (Bell andWeinbrg, 1978).
There is further evidence of extensive homosexual
behavior in other reports (Jefferiss, 1965; Scott and Stone,
1966, Meriono and Richards, 1977 to name a few.)
In the HBO movie, "And the Band Played On," patient
Zero had more than 250 lifetime sex partners.
I do not believe there were heterosexual bath houses in
San Francisco. There were many gay bath houses. There
are two gay bath houses (that) opened in New York earlier
this year. Gay men go there for sex with many partners.
About eight years ago, the Discovery Channel (aired) a
program:."Aids In America." In it, they said one gay male
had (more than) 2,000 lifetime sex partners.
The CDC recently reported the number of lifetime sex
partners for heterosexual males averages about nine. They
do not keep figures on homosexual males. I wonder why.
I guess this is homosexual reality today.

Is the United States ready to fall?

Every great nation has had its rise and fall.
No other nation in the history of mankind has risen to the
greatness of our great nation. So, I wonder, if the fall of this
great nation will be a greater fall than we have ever seen..
Not many here in the United States seem greatly worried


about the fall of the U.S. dollar against the Euro.
Maybe it is no big deal? Maybe the talk of a currency
common with Canada, U.S.,, and Mexico is an idea to
counteract the descending value of the dollar in interna-
tional trade? Will it work or be a bigger problem?
Could the descending value of the dollar be a sign of this
falling empire?
People from other countries have said to me that the U.S.
cannot survive without war, that somehow war is an eco-
nomic necessity to the U.S. I can not see how war helps
any country. Some want to see a victory in this (Iraq) war.
Victory must mean stomping out all terrorists.
Besides the economics of war draining our country, I
strongly suspect that the U.S. oil companies are so greedy
for profits, that they are destroying our country, the basis
for their power and source of their profits.
At one time, oil helped build our country. Now, oil com-
panies (are) out of control and are crippling our economy.
Yet, nobody in the government is brave enough to tackle
the problem. Could oil companies already be stronger
than the government?
Neither is any elected official on any level willing to tack-
le illegal immigration. From what I read and hear, the peo-
ple want to see illegals removed, not given citizenship.
Who has taken the power from the people?
We see these major problems and solutions, but
absolutely no positive action.

Schools can't change children's
behavior, only parents can

In response to the writer of "Teachers should stop
their whining," the schools usually cannot change
(children's) behavior and attitudes, which they bring to
the schools.
Behaviors and attitudes are instilled long before the
schools and teachers know your children. Sometimes,
what is modeled at home is not appropriate for the
classroom, as all of us witness regularly in the malls,
restaurants, etc.
There is a difference between whining and observing
the facts. As a 33-year veteran teacher, (I'd say) about 70
percent of our students are wonderful, but placed in
that setting, the other 30 percent do not seem to be able
to understand common courtesy and acceptable
behavior. The result is obviously a serious problem. The
minority are interfering with the learning process of the
majority. In this day and age, I do not believe that the
schools are guilty of "red-flagging a kid as bad," howev-
er, whether a teacher or non-teacher, most of us realize
that usually the nut does not fall far from the tree.

Pronunciation of years shouldn't be arbitrary

In consideration of the length of time it takes the American
public to adjust their learning, I wonder if there is the
slightest possibility by 2010 that the nation could revert to
pronouncing the calendar year nomenclature as was done
for the last 19 centuries?
By that, we would refer to 2010 as just that, "twenty-ten,"
rather than continue the clumsily voiced method we are
currently employing since the turn of the present century;
i.e., that this is the year "two thousand 'n'.seven" rather than
"twenty oh seven."
The main resource of this public education would have to
be radio/television, newspapers lacking vocalization means.
Of course, what do I know; I was born in "one thou-

Some New Year's


resolutions for


area car dealers


Earl Stewart is the owner
and general manager of
Earl Stewart Toyota in
North Palm Beach. The
dealership is located at
1215 N. Federal Highway
in Lake Park. Contact him
at www. earlstewarttoy-
ota.com, call (561) 358-
1474, fax (561) 658-0746 or
e-mail earls@earlstewart-
toyota.com.
ast year, I wrote a list
of 10 recommended
resolutions too, but it
appears that most of the
car dealers missed that
column. Things have not
improved. This year's list is
modified and erihanced.
Don't surprise your
customers with a dealer
fee. Since last year, the
heat has been turned up
on dealers who add this
dealer profit onto the
price, disguising it as an
official fee. The Florida
Senate recently completed
an investigation of this
practice and made recom-
mendations to the Florida
Legislature to pass a law
capping or eliminating
dealer fees. Just last week,
a class-action lawsuit was
certified by the court
against a Jacksonville
dealer. Both these events
will likely have severe
consequences on dealers
who charge dealer fees
and this applies to most
every car dealer in Florida.
Don't advertise a price
on a car that you won't
sell. How would you feel if
you went into Best Buy to
purchase a flat screen
plasma TV only to find out
that there was only one
being sold at the adver-
tised price? You would be
angry, wouldn't you? Do
you think your customers
feel any differently when
you advertise a very low
price on a car in the
newspaper and you have
just one car that is never
available? You also don't
pay your salesman a
commission if he sells this
car. Even if the car is there,


EARL STEWART
On Cars


how anxious will your
salesman be to show your
customer that car?
Don't mark your cars up
over the manufacturer's
suggested retail price. The
Monroney label is a
federal sticker required to
be on 'every new car you
sell. When you add thou-
sands of dollars to a
"phony Monroney" you
are tricking your customer.
You make him believe he is
getting a bigger discount
than he really is. You can
also trick him into think-
ing he is getting a bigger
trade-in allowance than he
really is.
Don't lie to people with
no credit or bad credit.
This is just like taking
advantage of a child or a
handicapped person. You
are kicking someone while
they're down. There are a
lot of people out there who
have bad credit. When you
advertise that "no credit
application is refused" or
"no credit and bad credit
and are no problem" you
are simply lying. You do
this because if you fool
enough people, you can
find some that will squeak
by on credit approval. Or,
you will surprise the-
person with a hug6 down
payment and/or interest
rate. Some of you even lie,
or encourage your cus-
tomers to lie, on their
credit application. This is a

Joe Burke, the owner of Extreme Outdoors, shows off a
cutting-edge infrared TEC gas grill and his custom bam-
boo outdoor kitchen in his Palm City showroom. The com-
pany also sells patio furniture, lighting accessories, gas fire
pits, swimming pool and Jacuzzi heaters and much more.


Extreme Outdoors

offers a world of

outdoor possibilities


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
PALM CITY If you can't
stand the heat, don't get out
of the kitchen let
Extreme Outdoors help you
move it outdoors and open
up. a whole new world of
entertaining.
The company opened its
expansive outdoor kitchen
store in Palm City last
March, but owner Joe Burke
isn't a novice. He's been sell-
ing everything from
portable gas grills to cus-
tom-made outdoor
kitchens over the Internet
for more than two years and
has shipped them as far
away as Australia and Nor-
way.
He still has customers
who find him first on the
Internet, but those in South
Florida now have the
advantage of coming in for
Mr. Burke's help'in design-
ing an outdoor kitchen
that's uniqueelh their own.
"I design the kitchens by
the CAD system," he said,
referring to the architectur-
al and design program he
learned in college. "We do a
total custom kitchen situa-
tion."
He's had customers come
from as far away as Braden-
ton. and Miami, and he just
recently finished up a
$60,000 outdoor kitchen in
Jupiter that even included a
fireplace.
He carries all of the top
name grills (TEC, Fire
Magic and Broil Master)
and emphasizes that there's
a "great difference" between
the grills he sells and the
ones sold at the big-box
retailers. That's the reason,
he adds, that great steak
houses such as Ruth Chris'
and Morton's use commer-
cial versions of TEC grills.
"You're cooking at up to
1800 degrees in tempera-
ture, and you're not losing
all those juices," he said.
"You're searing and zip-
locking them in. That's the
difference."
In fact, Extreme Out-
doors sells the next genera-
tion of TEC grills, which uti-
lize the company's
cutting-edge infrared
grilling system. Compared
to the standard ceramic
infrared technology that
uses 50 percent infrared


heat and 50 percent hot air,
TEC's newest patented
grilling system cooks with
100 percent infrared energy,
which significantly reduces
moisture loss and food
shrinkage. This means that
even well-done meats will
still be juicy and tender.
The new TEC grills utilize
100 percent stainless steel
burners that provide uni-
form heat distribution and
radiant glass cooking pan-
els that vaporize all food
drippings and maximize the
the food's charbroiled fla-
vor.
Extreme Outdoor's cus-
tom kitchen offerings have
expanded tremendously
since opening the retail out-
let, Mr. Burke said. Now
customers can choose to
design their outdoor
kitchens with granite, sev-
eral shades of onyx, dozens
of brick textures and even
bamboo.
The company now carries
everything from weather-
proof pool tables to swim-
ming pool heaters, patio
furniture, gas fire pits, tiki
torches and patio heaters
shaped like palm trees. Out-
door chefs will also find
spare parts for grills, in
addition to hot sauces and
seasoning mixes to ramp up
your barbecue experience.
In addition, the store sells
a variety of tankless water
heaters, which provide
instant hot water and last
more than twice as long as
standard hot water heaters.
If Extreme Outdoors can't
handle a customer's partic-
ular request, Mr. Burke
explained, the staff will find
someone who can.
"If we don't do it, we'll
refer you." he said. "Come
into my showroom, and
whether I carry it or not,
before you leave you'll have
somebody who does do it."
Extreme Outdoors is cur-
rently running several holi-
day specials, including a
five-foot outdoor kitchen
for $2,695 and a seven-and-
a-half-foot model for
$3,695, among others.
The store is located at
1105 S.W. Martin Downs
Blvd. in Palm City.

From page A7

"When you quote a customer a price for
service, don't surprise him at the cashier with
a 'sundry supplies fee'"


federal crime.
Don't include used cars
in new car ads. You
advertise new cars and
current model used cars
together in your ad, which
is seemingly a new car ad.
In the very fine print, you
have a disclosure that
says, "some cars may be
pre-owned." Of course you
can price a used car much
lower and trick the cus-
tomer, into thinking he can
buy a new one for that.
Don't take advantage of
the elderly. Most of the
calls I receive complaining
about being scammed by a
car dealer are from the
elderly, especially widows.
Widows often left the car
buying up to their hus-
bands and have never
bought a car on their own.
Last week I got a call
from a widow who bought
a new Honda only to
discover that the car had
been previously totaled
and sold at a salvage
auction. When she com-
plained, they took all the
original paperwork back
(all the evidence) and
replaced the car with a
lower-priced model. How
would you like it if your
mother, grandmother or
widow was taken advan-
tage of like this?
Make yourself totally.
accessible to your cus-
tornwi You might think
you know what is going.on
in \, our dealership, but
you haven't a clue unless
you communicate regular-
ly with your customers.
You might be a good
person who mehns well,
but when most of your
employees are paid on


commission, you have to
keep a very close watch on
them and your customers.
I don't have a secretary,
nobody screens my phone
calls and I give my busi-
ness card with my home
and cell phone numbers
on it to all of my cus-
tomers. I probably sell
more a lot more cars than
you, about 450 a month. If
I can be totally accessible
to all of my customers,
why can't you?
When you quote a
customer a price for
service, don't surprise him
at the cashier with a
"sundry supplies fee."
Some dealers call it a
"hazardous waste disposal
fee" and some call it a
"miscellaneous supplies
fee." It's just more profit to
you, and you calculate this
by simply tacking on 5 or
10 percent of the bill when
your customer is paying at
the cashier.
Don't hide big down
payments in the fine
print. You advertise very
low monthly payments on
purchase or leases, but in
the fine print, which is
often readable only with a
magnifying glass, you
require a large down
payment. Four thousand
or more is common..
Don't surprise your
customers.with "dealer
installed accessories."
Don't advertise a low price
with a disclaimer in the
fine print that the price
will be increased by
whatever accessories you
choose to add at to the car
at whatever price you
decide to charge for those
accessories.

offer to be an exercise
buddy and walk with your
friend on a regular basis.
That's a gift for both of you.
A word of caution: A piece
of exercise equipment is
only a good investment if
you know the person wants
it and will use it. You don't
want to give a gift that says,
"go on a diet."
If you know someone
would like a treadmill or
stationary bike, let them try
it out and make sure they're
comfortable with it. Check
with a doctor to make sure
it's appropriate, too.
Exercise videos are a fun
way to exercise and can be
used at home, in any
weather, at anytime. A good
source of news videos is at
Collage Videos. You can
view 60-second segments at
www.collagevideo.com.
Also, eBay and half.com
often sell copies of the
same videos for less. If it's a
gift, you'll want to make
sure it's in new or like new
condition.
For someone new to
exercise, Leslie Sansone has
a series of tapes that are
basic walking to music,
with no fancy steps to
master. They're great for
beginners or people who
want to exercise gently.
Give the gift of relax-
ation: A trip to a day spa is
a real luxury, but even a
facial or a massage or
pedicure makes a treat for
both men and women. For
home use, a paraffin hand
bath is a relaxing gift for


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
tired hands and helps achy
finger joints; a foot spa can
relax tired feet. Again,
check with a physician if
the recipient has medical
problems.
Give the gift of good
ideas: A cookbook that
emphasizes healthy eating
is a great gift for the cook.
Check out the American
Heart Association and
American Diabetes Associ-
ation for recommenda-
tions.
Other options: There are
many catalogues that offer
equipment to make the
activities of daily life easier
for people with mobility
problems.
One such catalogue,
Sammons Preston, offers a
wider variety of aids for
writing, eating, reaching,
bathing and other things
most of us take for granted.
You can call (800) 323-5547
or visit www.sammonspre-
ston.com. Functional
Solutions also offers useful
products to make life easier.
Call (800) 235-7054 or visit ,
www.BeAbleToDo.com.
For the visually impaired,
talking books make a
wonderful gift. You can get
more information at (888)
657-7323 or
www.loc.gov/nis/.
Are you joking? Finally,
don't forget that laughter
can be the best medicine!
Look in the humor section
of your local bookstore for
books that will give a good
laugh. Just remember to be
sensitive to the recipient
and choose something
appropriate.

Some ideas to help you get the


greatest gift of the holidays


W atever we
impress on our
subconscious-
mind wants to create
roots and blessings from
the spirit world and then
begin to manifest the
physical reality of itself.
This lack of under-
standing, belief or prac-
tice is the basic reason so
many live a life of sur-
vival rather than abun-
dance. a
Do you ever feel
unloved, angry, sick,
fearful, guilty or sad? If
you do, you are just one
of millions who have
become so caught up in
the outer, mental, fearful
worldly side of life and
are struggling just to
make ends meet.
If I could give you one
gift during the holidays
that would ease the
suffering and stress and
make your life easier,
here is what it would be:
that you turn away from
the outer world a little
and begin to go inside,
listen to and follow your
heart and inner guidance.
Get connected to the
source; the universe
within, and allow this
awesome power to work
for and through you. This
is a learned process and
takes practice to master,
just like any other skill. It
is not some magic formu-
la reserved only for the
elite or powerful. It can.
be learned and applied to
every area o life when
you have the desire for a
better way of life. The
process starts with a few
basic steps.


First, we have to release
the past and clear it of
accumulated negativity
and garbage to make
room for new positive
growth. Learn from the
past instead of judging it
or others and thank it for
the lessons.
Gratitude goes a long
way in spirit. Give thanks
each day for the blessing
of life itself and all you
have now, no matter how
much or little it may be.
Second, we must feel
worthy of having abun-
dance or we push it away.
Feeling poor but proud
doesn't cut it anymore.
Third is to make a
friend of the divine powei
instead of livin aga in awe
or fear of it. A personal
relationship with spirit
starts with gratitude, but
grows when we begin to
ask for inner guidance
and begin to trust and
develop faith in it.
In order to do this, we
have to surrender the ego
and lower will and ask for
the higher power to give
us spiritual guidance.
Making this transition is
where most of us have
the hardest time. Our
minds want to control
everything. Living by the
lower nature is what
causes war, divorce,
crime, sickness, poverty
and depression.
The fourth step is to
write down your visions
and inspirations when
they come. The messages
coming from the universe
are our greatest source of
truth. Writing them down


JAMES TUCKED
The Spirit Guide


is the same as grou
a seed in a garden.
Fifth, speak the d
out loud. Send it b;
your new friend. TI
Sthe spirit for send
this great gift to yo
way we know it is t
in the inspiration a
happiness we feel.
Then ask daily, tl
prayer or affirmati(
that you be shown
that the divinely-ir
message has been
blessed, is taking r
and beginningto g
outwardly and mai
the created form. J
because you don't
physical form in th
outer side doesn't
that something isn
happening in the e
field of spirit. This
where surrender,
patience, trust and
come into play.
By this time. you
should be seeing a
change and growth
idea you want to ct
vate.
Reread this colui
every day. Let thesf


eternal truths impress
upon your subconscious
S mind. Take them deep
into your heart and spirit.
Then, when your life has
changed from lack to
abundance, other will see
the changes and refine-
ments in you.
First, take care of your
own and family needs.
Then give back to your
spirit guide. Be generous
ER with those who encour-
e age and inspired you on
your journey. You are now
ending the light. Pass the torch
to others ready to learn
desire these eternal truths. You
ack to have done it. Now give,
hank hope to others. Say, "I did
ng it it and you can do it." This
u. The is a magnificent life well
ruth is lived. You have it in you.
ind Now go inside, bring it
out and set it free. It's
through your destiny and purpose
on, to do it. The sweetest
signs news is the best is yet to

The bow-to-stern

cabins, suites, the Wind-

Some specific addi-

favorite flavors.
The two renamed
main dining rooms sport
new upholstery, plush
carpets. wall decor and
window draperies.
In all, we found that
the food was excellent
and the presentation and
service were well beyond
expectations.
The expanded Day Spa

treatment rooms, a
relaxation area, beauty
salon, manicure and
pedicure stations, and a

There were new sta-

last five years. The presi-
dent' of the board of
directors of Molly's
House, Bill Rolo, said the
former director accom-
plished a lot during her
tenure.
"Judy Cruz did a fine
job for the five years she
was here," he said. "We
made great strides on the
golf tournament and she
improved the funding to
the house."
Mr. Rolo added that
he's excited, to have
someone of Ms. Mur-
taugh's caliber onboard
and is giving her his
unconditional backing.
"I support Louise," he
said. "She's doing a great
job and has already got-
teri a good grasp on the
house and identifying
some of the needs."
The new director also
has the backing of Molly's
parents, Kevin and Debby
Sharkey, who did not
always see eye-to-eye
with the.former director.
Over the last year they
were involved in some


heated public battles
with Ms. Cruz over what
they termed "an unwrit-
ten understanding" that a
member of Molly's family
would always serve on
the board.
The family began call-
ing for her removal after
Mr. Sharkey's term ended
and no one else in the
family was offered a
board position. Mr. Rolo
backed the leadership
role of Ms. Cruz, howev-
er, and Mr. Sharkey sub-
sequently took on an
advisory role until his
wife was ultimately
appointed to the board.
Mr. Sharkey says the
family is "thrilled" about
the direction the house is
taking under Ms. Mur-
taugh's leadership.
"We feel that she kind
of hit the ground run-
ning, and she's brought a
lot of innovative ideas,"
he said. "She's brought
warmth to the house and
smiles to the faces of the
volunteers."
And indeed, Ms. Mur-
.taugh credits the volun-
teers for making Molly's
House possible.

"Without the volun-
teers we couldn't keep
the house open 24/7,"
she said. "The cost would
be too much otherwise."
She's already searching
for new sources of rev-
enue, such as annual cor-
porate sponsorships,
emphasizing that her
lengthy history in mar-
keting, public relations
and fundraising has pro-
vided her with the neces-
sary skills to do the job.
"I think those kinds of
skills are what's needed
to give the house more
exposure and the funding
it needs to be a commu-
nity asset," she said.
Mr. Sharkey says
Molly's House needs to
evolve with the constant-
ly changing field of medi-
cine, explaining that fam-
ilies now need much
shorter stays for medical
procedures that took
much longer when the
house first opened. He
said he's looking to Ms.


Murtaugh for new direc-
tion and is pleased with
her idea of possibly creat-
ing a garden for medita-
tion and contemplation
on the shady vacant lot
behind the home.
"I think it's great," he
said. "What ever the fam-
ilies need, is what our
family is for."
Ms. Murtaugh. said
she'd also like to open up
the home's library for
local civic group meet-
ings, as well as brighten-
ing up some of the
rooms.
"It should be a warm,
happy place because they
(the home's guests) are in
some type of crisis. They
need to be cheered up,
and Molly would like
that."

I MAKING SENSE (IF INVESTING I










Cookies can make visiting Web sites easier for the user


his week I thought I'd
write about a topic
that makes people
almost as nervous as
viruses.
I'm sure everyone reading
this has at one time or
another heard about
"cookies" and how they let
people on the Internet
watch your every move.
I want to dismantle some
of these fears and shed
some light on the comput-
er's infamous cookie jar.
Contrary to common
belief, there's not a bunch of
caffeine-crazed hackers out
there sitting up late at night,
following trails of cookies
and monitoring where
people go online. Frankly,
who cares? Why would


someone want to follow my
progress as I casually
wander through cyber-
space?
Not understanding just
what cookies are just gives
them a big-brotherish air of
mystery.
Cookies are files that are
left on a Web surfer's hard
drive that allows aWeb site
keep track of information
about that user. This is a
method that some Web-
developers use so people
don't have to keep entering
the same information every
time they hit that page.
For instance, let's say you
go to a Web site that will
give you the weather in 12
different locations, and show
you its effect on 12 different

stocks (believe me, there are
stranger sites out there).
When you go to this site,
you have to enter in the 12
locations that you want the
weather from and then
enter in the 12 stock
symbols that you want to
track. You would have to re-
enter all 24 items every time
you visit the site. This can
get kind of tedious and,


since no one likes tedious,
Web developers invented
cookies.
Now, let's suppose the site
we just went to used
cookies. The first time you
visit, you entered a user
name and password, then
your 12 weather locations
and the 12 stocks you want
to monitor. The Web site
adds a line to a file on your
computer called,
"cookies.txt." All of your
preferences for this Web site
are stored in this cookie, so
every time you visit that site,
the data from the cookie is
used.
Bingo, all of your weather
choices and stock symbols
load automatically every
time you visit the site.
With that brief explana-
tion of cookies, you can see
that cookies are not this big
menace to Internet privacy,
but actually a tool that
makes surfing the Internet
easier and less frustrating.


Still not convinced?
There are a couple things
you can do to lessen your
exposure to cookies, if you
feel that strongly about
them.
The first, and I guess
easiest thing you can do is
go into yourWeb browser's
settings and turn on the
"warn before accepting
cookie" option.
Turning this on will force
your browser to ask you if
you want to accept a cookie
every time one is encoun-
tered and give you a yes or
no choice.
Another thing you can do
is click "start," then "search"
then click "all files or
folders" and enter "cookies"
in the little "all or part of a
file name" window. Make
sure "all hard drives" is in
the "look in" window and
then click the "search"
button. Windows will search
your computer for your
cookies folder. It should find


a cookies folder on your
hard drive in "documents
and settings\your Windows
user name."
Double click the folder to
open it and you will see all
the different Web sites that
have left cookies on your
machine. If you want to
remove one, just delete the
line that has the cookie you
want gone. Or, delete them
all. Just remember, if you
nuke all the cookies on your
machine, all those sites that
load what you want auto-
matically will have no idea
who you are and you'll have
to re-enter all that stuff you
entered the first time you
visited.
Well, that's cookies in a
nutshell. Until next week,
happy computing.

such neighbor who makes
regular shopping trips
into Martin County. The
married mother of three
said that the threat of the
new fees might not
change her driving
habits, but were still a
cause for concern.
"I'm not happy about
it," she said. "If some-
thing were to happen and
I need emergency servic-
es in Martin County, It's
definitely going to cost
me."
According to Mr. Wolf-
berg such services for


out -of-county residents
are already costing Mar-
tin County $225,000 a
year. Deputy Fire Rescue
Chief Joseph Ferrara
reminded commissioners
that the fees had already
been incorporated into
the 2008 fiscal year budg-
et with their approval. He
said that without the
fees, the county would
have to find the money
somewhere else.
"There would be a
$225,000 need to find
someplace in the budget,
because that was adopt-


ed as a revenue source,"
he said. "If the board
were not to adopt this
today, we will be seeking
somewhere in our budget
for the $225,000."
Commissioner Susan
Valliere insisted that the
ordinance be worded to
exempt seasonal resi-
dents who own property
in the county, while
Commission Chairman
Doug Smith said that the
county had fewer and
fewer options for new
revenue sources.
"We're traveling into


different times and we're
trying to deal with reduc-
tions in ad valorem
(property taxes) and pro-
vide those levels of serv-
ice that save people's
lives," he said. "If we
don't move forward on
something like this, we're
going to start jeopardiz-
ing other elements and
components of our fire
and rescue department."
County attorney
Stephen Fry said the new
fees will go into effect no
later than Dec. 7. After
that time, the insurance


companies of non-Martin
County residents receiv-
ing the aforementioned
services will be billed for
the actual cost if they
cannot produce proof of
residency or a recent
property tax receipt.
The commissioners
also voted 3-2, with com-
missioners DiTerlizzi and
Heard dissenting, to raise
the fees charged by the
county fire and rescue
department for putting
out wildfires on private
property to $1,460 per
hour.

Merrill Lynch invests in United Way


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Randy Marsh, senior
resident director at Merrill
Lynch's Stuart office,
promised his colleagues
that he would be "chef for
the day" if they achieved
100 percent participation
in their giving program.
Each of the office's 40


employees made a contri-
bution, so he opened up
"Cafe Merrill" on Nov. 1
and grilled steaks and
seafood.
"I am very proud of the
charitable legacy that is
being created by Merrill
Lynch in the community
where we all live and
workk" said Mr. Marsh.
"For the third consecu-


tive year, 100 percent of
our employees participat-
ed in the annual Merrill
Lynch Giving Campaign,
whereby a large percent-
age of our gifts were ear-
marked specifically for the
United Way of Martin
County."
In April, the Merrill
Lynch office gave United
Wa. additional support


through the second annu-
al Bull Run 5K Run/Walk,
which raised $5,000.
United Way of Martin
County overall campaign
goal for 2007-08 is $2.3
million.

Amaryllis, impatiens add color to winter


ne of the most sought-
after novelty plant
items is the amaryllis
bulb. These colorful plants
are very easy to grow and
bloom with very little effort.
They can be grown inside
or out, and are a staple at
most retailers during the
holiday season.
These colorful plants
originated in South Ameri-
ca's tropical climate. The
botanical name for it is
hippeastrum.
Because of the large

almost any lawn and garden
center, impatiens will most
likely be the dominant
plant. You will-fihd them in
all colors and sizes from a
small4-inch pot all the way
upto 14-inch tor larger)
color bowls.
Many stores also'darry.six-
packs and 24 packs. As a
Srule of thumb, if you are
going to plant a garden with
impatiens, plant lots of
them. You will be well
rewarded with a garden to
be proud of.
During the holiday
season, impatiens can be
found in red and \white color
varieties. They can add real
holiday flair to any garden or
holiday display.
Impatiens will do best if
planted in an area that does
not get full sun all day. If you
plan on putting in impatiens
just for the winter, this won't
be quite as critical, as the
, plants will endure more sun
during the winter than the
spring and summer.
You will want to use a
good quality porting soil.
such as Miracle Gro, and
plant them in an area that
has good drainage. If water
stands too long or the soil
stays mucky, impatiens will
develop root rot. They do,
however, need to. be kept
evenly mois. If you let an
impatiens plant dry out too
much, the plant will-wilt.
Even though the plant will
appear to recover when you
revive it with water, damage
has been done. Repeated
bouts of drying out will
compronuse the plant quality
dramatically over time.
If you have a sprinkler
system, do not rely on it 100
percent for your flowers.
Always supplement your
watering regime with hand
watering.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene


Barn


offers


holiday,


show
here'll be a "Potpourri
of Christmas" at the
Barn Theatre this
holiday season.
The show, which runs
from Dec. 13-16, was
written and directed by
Stuart resident Adele
Carraher, and combines
music, dancing, mono-
logues and short skits.
For the first time, Ms.
Carraher has also incorpo-
rated children in the show.
"They're doing a produc-
tion number of "Jingle Bell
Rock" in the 1950s style, Ms.
Carraher said. "They're
doing a great job."
Among the comic scenes
is a skit the director found
on the Internet called
"Christmas at the Bethle-
hem Fawlty," that is a spoof
of the popular John Cleese
comedy, "Fawlty Towers.
and a poem she came
across called "The Night
before Christmas in'
Florida."
There is also a touching
tribute to the troops to
remind us all that everyone
can't be home for Christ-
mas.
During the intermission,
Santa Claus will mingle
with the audience; there'll
be cookies and punch, and
even a sing-along.
The 74-year-old Ms.
Carraher, who moved to
Florida from Michigan in
1999, is not performing in
the show, although her
voice will be heard.
As the audience leaves, a
recording of her singing her
original composition, "A
Potpourri of Christmas,"
will play. She doesn't mind
at all that she isn't on stage.
"It's time for younger
people to get their due," she
said. "I enjoy directing. It's
a lot more work than being
in it."
Ms. Carraher is pleased
that tickets for the show are
priced so that entire
families can come to the
show. Tickets are $15 for
adults and $5 for students
and children. For groups of

BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Saxophonist Mindi Abair loves
performing Christmas music with
guitarist Peter White and trumpeter
Rick Braun so much that coming
together for the holidays has
become a regular gig.
Mr. White, the ringleader, has
assembled 'the group again, and
they bring "A Peter White Christmas"
to the Lyric Theatre on.Dec. 13.
In a recent phone interview, Mindi
Abair spoke about what she loves
about Christmas and about her own
busy career.

Aries-March 21-April 19
With the planet Uranus finally going direct after
being in retrograde for the past six months, you
will begin to feel less struggle. Life will begin to
make more sense. When.any of the planets pull
away from the earth (retrograde) it robs the natu-
ral flow of positive energy and we feel it as stress
and burnout. Get ready Aries. Your spiritual engine
and energy is rewing again. Watch out World.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Be careful of your spending during, the holidays.
Personal time spent with loved ones is just as
important as the things you buy them. Spend a lit-
tle more time with the old ones you love who are
getting up in years. This will stay in your heart as
legacy in your memory for years to come. It all
comes back to us multiplied. This is the true mean-
ing of the holidays.


Moore, John Tesh and Adam San-
dler, Ms. Abair hasn't spent a lot of
time in her home state lately.
"I've been on the road with my
band," she said. "It's great to go out
and play in front of people. In the
meantime, I've also been recording
a Christmas CD with Peter and Rick.
We started in July, during a point in
L.A. when it was literally over 100
degrees every day. We were all tour-
ing (separately), and we'd try to ren-
dezvous. That was fun. I've also
been in the studio working on my
newest CD, coming out in April
2008. I've been writing songs, com-
ing up with what I feel is the right
sound."
"I've written about 30 songs, but


it's not about writing 10 songs, it's
about writing 10 songs I really like,
that match, and are not carbon
copies but have a common thread,"
said Ms. Abair. "You have to get in
and delve into the mind and soul."
The self-described "Christmas
geek" says that the group counts
coming to the Lyric each year as a
high point.
"We absolutely love it there," she
said. "I love Stuart. I walk around
town and love the little shops. I stop
at ith chocolate shops and the gift
stores. \Ve all love it there."
"We'ie crafted this show over four
or five years." said Ms. Abair. "Each

Gemini-May 21-June 21
The universe is going to bless you with all the ener-
gy you need to make it safely through the holidays.
Your job is to be faithful, trusting and patient, and
let it and things work out in their own natural time
and order. Frustration is caused by letting fear and
impatience rule you. Back off when you begin to
get uptight. Relax and enjoy. Everything is in divine
order.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
A bright attitude brings good cheer to every occa-
sion. You are the family person. Pay a little more
attention to those around you who need extra sup-
port right now. In giving, we receive back tenfold.
You are the master at this. When you see the need
and fill it, things just seem to have a magical way of
working out. This is one of your greatest rewards.
Thanks for being there.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
State your case, work your cause and let others
know what you need and when. Then give them
time to perform. Theywill. Teamwork is a vital part
of your success. Continue to dream big dreams
and visualize strong positive advances happening
in every area of life. Sometimes it isn't easy, but it is
sure to happen if you set the wheels in motion and
stay focused.

Virgo-Aug.23-Sept.22
You deserve the best in life because you give the
best. Your good judgment is the talk of the zodiac.


Tuesday


If it isn't fair for everyone, you don't want to be
involved. You are noted for love of family, compas-
sion and loyalty. Your deep understanding of truth
continues to amaze your closest friends. With all
these qualities you remain a true blessing to all
who know you.

Libra-Sept.23-Oct 22
Pay extra attention to details right now. It is better
to be over- rather than under-prepared. When it
comes time to take action on a plan well con-
ceived, success is guaranteed because of the
advance attention to the small stuff. Your actions
speak louder than your words when you create
this edge from proper planning. Now watch out.
Exciting things are about to happen.

Scorpio-Oct.23-Nov. 21
The moon and Venus in Scorpio, along with your
great sensitivity, gives you a huge edge in the heart
department. You have a window in the universe
that is rare. Follow your deepest dreams right now.
Set in motion your deepest desires. You have all
the motivation needed to psyche yourself up and
soar safely and joyously through the holidays.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Last week was great. This week is outstanding. The
sun, Mercury, Jupiter qnd Pluto are all in your sign.
What was just predicted for Scorpio applies even
more for you. You are on a natural high wave of

Steve Solomon brings his one-man show about family foibles, 'My Mother's Italian, My
Father's Jewish, and I'm in Therapy,' to the Sunrise Theatre on Dec. 21.


Steve Solomon always


finds fun in his family


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Steve Solomon was a
high school physics
teacher and school admin-
istrator when he decided
to shift gears and become
a comedian.
He debuted his one-man
show, "My Mother's Ital-
ian, My Father's Jewish,
and I'm in Therapy," at the
Lyric. Theatre and per-
formed it again last year
just prior to taking the
show to NewYork.
On Dec. 21, he brings the
show to the Sunrise The-
atre for the first time; he
spoke recently by phone
about the busy year he's
had.
"It's been astounding,"
he said. "It was supposed
to be a 12-week run in New
York, and we just celebrat-
ed one year. I left the show
in May, and actor Paul
Kreppel is doing a wonder-
ful job. I do 31 different
characters and the sound
effects, and I trained him
and yelled at him, and he
learned it beautifully."
For those who are not
familiar with Mr.
Solomon's theories of rela-
tivity, his show is about
relationships.
"It's about everyone in


the world whose sole pur-
pose was to drive me into
therapy," he said. "It's
about family, the police,
airport security, doctors,
best friends, and neigh-
bors. Everybody walks out
identifying with someone.
They'll tell me, 'I have an
aunt, I have an uncle ...' I
impersonate 'My Sister,
the Smoker,' so well that
my family thinks it's her. I
was nervous when she
came to see the show, and
I'm doing her coughing
and wheezing, that she'd
be insulted, but she said,
'At least you made me
famous."'
The road to New York
began when comedian Pat
Cooper told Mr. Solomon
to take his act to Florida.
"I did well, but I wasn't
making money," he said. "I
was just another comic. I
knew I needed a show, and
came up with the title. My'
agent brought it to the
William Morris agency,
and they loved the idea
and booked $150,000 in
ticket sales with only a
title. My agent sent me to
work on a cruise ship for
ten months. I'd do two
stand-up performances a
night; then you're stuck on
the middle of the sea, and I
wrote the show. We tried it

out at the Lyric, and John
Loesser said it would work
in New York. We were very
scared. We had to raise
millions and put every-
one's money at risk. I never
would have believed that
the show would last this
long. The tourists love it.
It's very Middle America."
Leaving the show in
capable hands gave Mr.
Solomon the chance to
debut a new show, "My Sis-
ter's an Only Child: the
Chaos Continues," which
he performed at the Kravis
Center and Atlantic City in
his return to stand-up. He's
also training other per-
formers for touring com-
panies of "My Mother's
Italian...
"It's a wonderful mix," he
said. "Sometimes I have
three 90-minute shows in
my head at one time. I can
forget which show I'm in."
Steve Solomon brings his
one-man show, "My Moth-
er's Italian, My Father's
Jewish, and I'm in Therapy"
to the Sunrise Theatre, 117

Your strong belief in honesty
and doing things right is the
main factor working in the
quality life you are creating.
Dare to be different. When
you get that right feeling,
nothing can slow you down
or stop you. You are a proven

finish what you start. You

Why can't we all be so
blessed?

Keep Christmas tree fresh,


Santa alive and cookies flavorful


Hello, smart shoppers.
Check out my
holiday cookbook
special at the end of the
column.
It's time to trim the tree.
To keep your tree fresh, cut
some off the bottom before
putting it in a stand. Even
though some was cut when
it was purchased, it proba-
bly has sealed up with sap.
For the first watering, use
lukewarm water, to which
you've added one aspirin for
a tree up to 7 feet. Use two
aspirins for a larger tree.
Add cold water once or
twice a day thereafter. If the
water is gone the trunk will
seal and the tree Will stop
drinking and die.
Now that I've shared how
I take care of the tree, I'd like
to share how I handled the
"I wants" that go on and on
with children at Christmas. I
explained to them that
many children throughout
the world didn't have
anything. So, moms and
dads who could sent Santa
money for the toys their
children wanted. Then
Santa could give presents to
the poor children who had
nothing. Now you can
negotiate, choices can be
made and there will be no
disappointments, since they
know how much money you
can afford to send Santa.
Makes sense, doesn't it?
Common sense tells us
that Santa doesn't have time
to set up a tree and he
certainly doesn't have time
to wrap gifts, especially in
the same paper your
children saw you buy.
Being Italian, we cele-
brate Christmas Eve and
Christmas day. How else can
we become martyrs?
Gifts are exchanged on
Christmas Eve, both with
family members and the
children. Presents to be
exchanged are wrapped and
placed under the tree.
Since Santa hasn't come
yet, nobody knows what he
willbring.
Try my way. It worked for
us through four kids and
they believed a lot longer
than most. By the way, (God
forgive me) when my kids
said their friend's parents
told them (the facts) I told
my kids they (the parents)
were liars. Now that I have
confessed my sin, let's get to
the recipes.


Today we'll cover two
delicious cookie recipes.
You can mix up most of the
batters now and freeze
them. Then, when baking
time is here, you'll see how
easy will your life be. Be
aware that when I recom-
mend. Smart Balance butter
substitute, which works
great in place of butter or
margarine. I am not talking
about the "light" version; it
is too soft and will not work.
Also, remember to preheat
the oven for 20 minutes.

ULTIMATE
CHOCOLATE CHIP
COOKIE ,
This is a superb recipe
and slightly different from
the original.
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons
unsifted, bleached all-
purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons each: salt
and baking soda
1-1/2 sticks unsalted
butter, (no substitutes),
melted and cooled until
warm (very important)
1 cup brown sugar (1/2
light and 1/2 dark), firmly
packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, plus 1 yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup,chopped pecans.
or walnuts
Heat oven to 325 degrees.
Adjust oven racks to upper
and lower middle positions.
Mix flour, salt and baking
soda together in a medium
bowl, set aside. Using an
electric mixer, mix cooled
butter and sugars until
thoroughly blended. Mix in
egg, yolk and vanilla. Add
dry ingredients, mix until
just combined. Stir in chips
and nuts. Chill dough about
1/2 hour.
Shape teaspoon-size
pieces of dough into a ball
and place on a cookie sheet
about 2 inches apart. Do not
flatten.
Bake, swapping cookie
sheets halfway through
baking until cookies are
light golden brown and
outer edges start to harden.
Centers should still be soft
and puffy, 15 to 18 minutes,
(start checking at 12
minutes).
Dough can be refrigerated

New Web site explains water

conservation importance


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The South Florida Water
Management District has
launched a comprehensive
Web site that provides resi-
dents, businesses, utilities,
local governments and edu-
cators with a one-stop shop
for information about water
conservation.
"There's a great need for
practical and up-to-date
information on water conser-
vation," said Carol Wehle,


executive director of the
South FloridaWater Manage-
ment District.
"With no end in sight to the
current water shortage, the
new Web site is a vital com-
munications tool for encour-
aging everyone to incorpo-
rate water conservation
practices into their homes
and businesses, and to do so
for the long term."
The Web site's home page
features current water restric-
tions, landscaping informa-
tion and water-saving tips.


The site developed as this
year's drought and water
shortage focused growing
attention on water conserva-
tion and identified the need to
further improve public aware-
ness of measures needed to
protect water resources.Water
restrictions alone have been
prompting more than 150,000
monthly web hits to existing
water shortage-related district
Web pages this year.
Visit the Web site at

Bikers for Babies


a roaring

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

TREASURE COAST-The
Treasure Coast Division
March of Dimes held its
Annual Bikers for Babies
HalloiXeen Poker Run on
Saturday, Oct. 27.
The successful fundrais-
er, which helps fight
premature birth, began at
both Service Chevrolet in
Vero Beach and at Trea-
sure Coast Harley David-
son in Stuart.
Bikers rode to several
locations to draw their
poker hand and then
ended at the Port St. Lucie
Fall Festival at Tradition
Field where they drew
their final card.
After. all the bikes were
in, event participants and
Fall Festival goers mingled
around the silent auction
tent making bids on a
range of prizes such as a
deep sea fishing trip,
round trip airline tickets
for two, jewelry, sets of
luggage and golf packages.
A live auction took place
later in the afternoon,
which drew heated
bidding for the many
packages.
Following the live
auction was the most
important part of the


success

afternoon when Bikers for
Babies committee co-
chair Wanda Sapp hon-
ored the top fundraising
clubs and the top
fundraisers.
The Legion Riders
Motorcycle Club took first
place, raising more than
$1,200.
Fiasco Brothers took
home the second place
award and the Blue
Knights were the third-
place winners.
Carol Lanigan was
awarded third place for
top fundraiser this year
and Robert Parry took
second place. Samson
Deville, a member of the
Bikers for Babies commit-
tee was this year's top
fundraiser, an honor he
also received last year, and
he presented the March of
Dimes with a check for
$8,341.
"The dedication and
support of the biker
community is so tremen-
dous; they are raising
money because they
believe in giving every
baby a healthy start.
Because of their efforts
our event was a success
and we are so grateful for
all they do," said Wanda
Sapp, committee co-chair.

Pri patrol award classroom


enrichment grants


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The Education Founda-
tion board members and
contributors visited 21
school sites to present
unsuspecting teachers and
students with bunches of
red balloons, congratula-
tory certificates, and over-
sized checks in recogni-
tion of their
award-winning grant
requests.
"It's amazing to see the
looks on the faces of the


teachers and their stu-
dents as we roam from
room to room," said Lisa
Rhodes, the foundation's
executive director. "Teach-
ers and students are all
smiles as we enter the
classrooms. This is what
it's all about. This program
reinvigorates our teachers,
validates their efforts and
provides additional
motivation and resources
to our students."
The Classroom Enrich-
ment Grant program


allows teachers and
administrators to apply for
funding for specific
enrichment projects or
programs. The program
has infused more than
$400,000 into classrooms
across the district.
A teacher may apply for
up to $500 for a single
classroom project and
administrators or teams of
teachers may apply for up
to.$1,500 for projects
benefiting large groups, a
tull grade level, or entire


school populations.
As the result of commu-
nity support, the summer
campaign raised more
than $45,000 for the
students in Martin County,
which allowed the Educa-
tion Foundation to apply,
for a matching grant from
the Florida Legislature for
an additional $40,000.

goalies

have

zeros in

common

BY TOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
When Laura Alarcon is
in goal, one thought is
running through her
head.
"I have to stop the shot,"
Alarcon said.
Similarly, goalkeeper
Danny Houston focuses
on the positive.
"You have to have confi-
dence back there," Hous-
ton said. "You have to tell
yourself you're going to
stop the ball.
"If you're negative, it'll
get by you."
While Alarcon minds
the nets for St. Lucie West
Centennial and Houston
does the same for Jensen
Beach, both players have
had something in com-
mon beyond their desires
to succeed.
Nothing.
That is exactly what the
duo has allowed the
opposition for most of
the young season. After
eking out a 4-3 win over
Seminole Ridge in the
season opener, St. Lucie
West Centennial has been
virtually unstoppable and
Alarcon is one of the big
reasons why. She has dis-
played tremendous poise
in goal, as evidenced by
earning her eighth
shutout of the season in
the Eagles' 13-0 win over
Palm Beach Lakes on Nov.
26.
The victory boosted
Centennial's record to 9-
0-1 on the season its
best start since the pro-
gram began in 1998.
"She's a good goalie,"
Centennial head coach
Doug Black said. "She's a
solid keeper.
"She's great down low
and has made a couple of
really nice saves to keep
us undefeated."
Similarly, Houston has
made the most of his sen-
ior season. Playing
against a tough Sebastian
River team on Nov. 20, the
17-year-old recorded his
fifth shutout, as the Fal-
cons stayed undefeated
at 5-0.
"He's a very talented
individual," Jensen Beach
head coach Charles
Rosseau said. "He's been
a four-year varsity mem-
ber, but he was in the
shadow of (former goalie)
Alan Eckler.
"He has great reaction
time. He'll be our No. 1
man."
While being at the fore-
front is relatively new for
Houston, Alarcon has
thrived, in the spotlight
for most of -her soccer
career.

Great golf packages available before holidays in Central Florida


If you watched The Golf
Channel recently, you
probably caught the
final stage of the PGA Tour
qualifying school.
Watching the pros play
fantastic courses in the
best of conditions usually
makes every golfer quite
envious. Most PGA Tour
events are played on
exclusive, private courses
and most are not available
to recreational golfers.
This is not the case with
Orange County National
Golf Center and Lodge in
Winter Park, just west of
Disney World and host of
this past weekend's PGA
Tour qualifying school. If
you're considering taking a
short weekend trip before
Christmas, this may be
just the place.
With two championship
18-hole tracks, a nine-hole
short course, a lodge, full-
service clubhouse and a
huge practice facility, all
secluded well away from
the mayhem that is central
Florida, Orange County
National is quite the
gclfel hea\t en.

best time to play a golf
course is right after it
hosts a tournament. The
fairways are usually hard
and fast, the greens roll
faster and truer and the
rough is a little tougher.
Most of us have talked
about measuring our game,
against the best in the
business. Now vNor have
the chance to pla\ the
same track in nearly the
same condition as the
pros. From.now until
Christmas is a great time
to visit Orange County
National.

better present.
Golfers mnay enjoy
Panther lake and Crnoked
Cat. Both are award-
S.wining track, completely
. devoid of homes and

Built on the rolling hills of
central Florida, each
course features five sets of
tees, including the same
ones used for the Q-school
finals.
Crooked Cat may be
played anywhere from .
5,112 to 7,493 yards. With
water on only three holes,
Crooked Cat feels le.s like
a lorida course and mote
like one otui'd find in the
Carolinas. Trees and waste

features more elevation

Panther Lake fits the bill.
Coming in at 624 yards

challenged to cut the

A LOOK BACK
The rear defroster is one of those
conveniences that you are likely to
take for granted until it ceases
to function. At that point, it also
becomes a safety hazard that should
be repaired as soon as possible. The
first step to take when any failure of -
an electrical component is involved
is to check the fuses (or circuit
Sbreakers). If this is the source of the
problem, replacement of the fuse
can be a quick, easy fix. However,
When a rear defroster stops working,
the cause is often a break in the'
& grid in the electrical cil:uii lhad ii
Painted on the window Tils orpaj-
Sage can result from an inadvertent

i, eiltlrrl,:ai yLri of most cars
is not something that you should try
to fix on your own. At ADVANTAGE
FORD OF STUART, we can help you
with any electrical issue in your car,
truck, or SUV. While changing your
own fuses shouldn't be a problem,
some times a new fuse won't fix
the problem. If you have electrical

Goalies


From page B14
The 17-year-old began
her love affair with the
sport when she was 9, first
playing the position of
defender. She switched to
goalkeeper two years later
and hasn't looked back.
"I love playing goalie,"
Alarcon said. "I like hav-
ing a lot of pressure where
everything is depending
on you.
"Someone is coming
one-on-one on the goalie.
I like that."
Alarcon starred in net
for three 'Seasons with St.
Francis Prep and also has
a stint with the Albertson-
Milan Fury club team to
her credit.
It was with the Fury that
Alarcon developed her
penchant for shutouts,
having recorded 15 of
them last season in help-
ing the team to a quarter-
finalist finish in the state
cup.
"I used to train three
times a week in New
York," Alarcon said. "It
was very hard and there
was a lot of pressure."
Just like Alarcon, Hous-
ton is used to being on an
elite team. Jensen Beach
won the state champi-
onship in 2006 and fol-
lowed that up with a
regional semifinal berth
the next season. Houston
was happy with his role
on those teams, but was
eagerly awaiting his
,opportunity to spend
more time on the field.
"I loved it but I wanted
to be playing more,",
Houston said. [ 'kept
preparing for senior sea-
son.
I've been training one-
on-one for two years with
a guy who used to be a
goalkeeper. It's been pret-
ty good."
While both goalies are
satisfied with their per-
formances so far, each
knows they couldn't do it
alone.
"I feel very comfortable
back there," Houston
said. "Our team is very
strong. Our defense is
very solid."
The same can be said
for Centennial.
"My defenders are awe-
some," Alarcon said. "Our
defenders are good at
preventing shots.
"We connect as a team.

When I transferred, it was
very hard in the begin-
ning. I was very nervous.
"When I had my first
tryout, the girls were very
cool. I adapted quickly.
Now it feels like I'm at
home."
St. Lucie West has also
benefited from having
another goalie to turn to
as well, Lauren Walsh.
The junior earned her
first shutout in goal on
Nov. 20, as Centennial
pounded area rival Fort
Pierce Central 8-0.
"She's a very talented
goalkeeper," Black said.
"She's a great weapon.
"She can punt a ball
close to 50 or 60 yards.
Both (Walsh and Alarcon)
bring something positive.
They both have great
qualities."
While Walsh longs for
more playing time, she is
happy to be part of a win-
ning team.
"It's hard for me, but
she's (Alarcon) also a very
good keeper," Walsh said.
"We get along very well.
"It's really rewarding for
the whole team. We're
really pumped about it.
We're not used to the
recognition thing."
While the season is long
from being over, both
coaches are happy with
what they've seen so far.
"They (the team) has
put themselves in a posi-
tion to be successful,"
Rosseau said. "I definitely
tell the boys that I want a
clean sheet. The last 20
minutes is no, time 'to
slack off.
S"Finish the game and
buckle down harder to be
able to pura team away.
"I have been impressed
to some degree that when
we do have a lead I've
been able to get other
players some time and
the second stringers are
still .holding their
weight."
Black is impressed every
time his team takes the
field.
"We're playing some
good soccer," Black said.
"The girls are proud of
themselves. I've never
really paid attention to.
shutouts in a row, but
nine is pretty good.
"The shutout streak is
nice. I think we can get a
few more this year."
