Agencies avoid problems despite run on state funds


Oversight board restructures pool
to restore investor confidence


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
Some good timing kept
Martin County coffers full
enough to pay bills despite
its assets in a state-run
investment pool being
frozen for a week.
The State Board of
Administration froze the
Local Government Invest-
ment Pool on Nov. 29
because of a run on the
funds that quickly dropped
its value from $27 billion to

PALM CITY Unless
Commissioner Michael
DiTerlizzi can find
someone to donate
space for a provisional
library in Palm City, res-
idents will soon have to
drive to the Blake
Library in Stuart to
check out books or surf

The Peter and Julie
Cummings Library in
Palm City is scheduled
to close on Feb. 1 as
workers begin a 10,000-
square-foot addition
that will double the
facility's size. The library
will remain closed for
approximately 300 days,
a fact that left Mr. DiTer-
lizzi, the district's repre-
sentative, looking for
ways to keep the facility
open.
"It's almost a year that

Florida municipalities
and agencies have used the
Florida Local Government
Investment Pool for 25
years as a secure place to
store money until needed
for operating expenses and
payroll budgets.
While some local entities
such as the city of Stuart
and the St. Lucie County
School Board did manage
to withdraw most of their


funds, many, such as Martin
and St. Lucie counties, did
not and temporarily lost
access to some of their
operating capital.
The investment pool
remained closed until Dec.
6, when it reopened with
numerous restrictions
under the guidance of
financial asset manager
BlackRock.
The new restrictions limit
investors to withdrawing 15
percent of their current
total balance, or $2 million,
whichever is greater. Any
new money invested in the
pool can be completely
withdrawn without penalty,

collecting

supplies

for troops

BY RITA HART
Staff writer
A local group wants to
make sure the community
remembers its soldiers who
are spending the holidays
away from family and
friends.
Cadets for Vets, a com-
munity service program
that is part of Victory Forge
Military Academy in Port
St. Lucie, is collecting sup-
plies from residents of St.
Lucie and Martin counties
to send to troops stationed
in Iraq.
The military academy is a
non-profit organization
that partners with local vet-
erans associations. Their
mission is to give back to
the community and to
those who have served in
the.military.
The group has already
begun its work, collecting
supplies from people
attending .the RiverWalk
Jazz Holiday Festival in
downtown Stuart on Dec. 2.
"The response was phe-
nomeial," said Col. Alan
Weierman of the Victory
Forge Military Academy.
"We had a huge Humvee
filled with supplies, and we
raised another $11,000 in
cash as well," he said.
The Cadets for Vets will
be accepting donations
through the month of
December, and expect to

STUART David Card-

heartening statistic: 2,575
Martin County families
with young children have
no father figure in sight.
The transplanted Scots-

Father & Child Resource
Center on East Ocean
Boulevard, an organiza-
tion he helped found
seven years ago with the
aid of the Children's Ser-
vices Council and the
United Way of Martin
County.


The primary purpose of
the center is to teach
unwed and divorced
fathers how to take their
rightful role in the lives of
their children, no matter
what the obstacles.
In order to achieve his
mission, Mr. Cardno aban-
doned the old idea ol
focusing on deadbeat dads
in search of more produc-
tive ways to connect single
fathers with their children.
"That method has noi
been wildly successful," he
said. "What we use is a

Ann Romney, wife of
Republican presidential
candidate Mitt Romney,
spoke about family and the
campaign trail at a lunch-
eon at Quail Valley River
Club Monday, Dec. 10.

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH As her
husband, Mitt Romney,
seeks the Republican pres-
idential nomination, Ann
Romney knows what kind
of first lady she wants to
be.
For Mrs. Romney, 58,
one former first lady car-
ries special significance:
Abigail Adams, who forged
a partnership with her
husband, John Adams, the
second president.
"I believe Mitt and I
have a very similar part-
niership," Mrs. Romney
said Monday during a
campaign stop here. She
called her husband of 38
years "the most qualified,
the smartest and the best
looking" among the'crop
of presidential con-
tenders.
That partnership has
afforded her a large role in
the Romney campaign,
complete with solo trips to
early voting states and her
own campaign Web site,
which includes recipes,
family photos and details
about her battle with mul-
tiple sclerosis.
Four days before her
Vero Beach visit, Mrs.
Romney joined her hus-
band in Texas when he
sought to assuage fears
about their Mormon faith.
"We're tolerant of the
symphony of faiths," she
said, echoing her hus-
band's speech. "We're not
only going to elect a presi-
dent if he's of a certain
faith. That's the absolute
opposite of what our
country was founded on."
The speech, reminiscent
of one then-candidate
John E Kennedy gave in
1960 about his Catholi-
cism, will continue to res-


onate, Mrs. Romney said.
"No matter what hap-
pens to Mitt, I think that
speech was significant,
and what he said was so
significant," she said.
Her fundraising stop at
Quail Valley River Club
was a chance for Mrs.
Romney to talk up her
husband as a successful
venture capitalist and gov-
ernor.
"Mitt has had so many
situations in his life where
he's been able to turn
around failing companies
and really understand the
economics of what makes
something work," she
said.
Mostly, though, Mrs.
Romney talked about her
husband as a father and
grandfather, who, once
Sunday dinner has been
cleared, shoos his wife
from the kitchen so he and
his five grown sons can do
the dishes.
"He lives for the family,"
Mrs. Romney said. "That is
his source ofjoy."
In 1998, around the time
her husband was tasked
with overhauling the 2002
Winter Olympics in Salt
Lake City, Utah, she was
diagnosed with multiple
sclerosis, an incurable
neurological disorder.
"I thought my life was
over," she recalled.
Depressed, frightened
and worried about being
confined to a wheelchair,
Mrs. Romney rebuilt her
strength with a combina-
tion of medications and
horseback riding. Though
it had been years since she
climbed into a saddle, she
wanted to make the most
of her health. Horseback
riding, a lifelong passion,
became her therapy.
"There is this energy
that a horse gives you,"
she said.
With Floridians set to
cast ballots in the presi-
dential preference pri-
mary lan. 29, Mrs. Romney
is the latest member of her
family to campaign in
Indian River County.
Tagg Romney, her oldest
son, stumped for his
father in February, while
son Craig Romney drove
the "Mittmobile" bus to
Vero Beach in September.
."Florida is an important
state," Mrs. Romney said,
adding: "I think this area
would be particularly
receptive to our message
of strong families,
strengthening the military
and having a strong econ-
omy."
After addressing about
60 supporters at Quail Val-
ley, Mrs. Romney was
bound for Des Moines,
Iowa, where the mercury
hovered at 19 degrees that
afternoon and the first-in-
the-nation caucuses were
less than three weeks
away.
Before she left for the
airport, Mrs. Romney
encouraged on-the-fence
Republicans to examine
her husband's record.
"You get the whole pack-
age," she said. "You get
everything."

Children's Museum receives $250,000 grant


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The Children's Museum of
the Treasure Coast received
a $250,000 donation from
Theodore Brown, Treasure
Coast president for Bank of
America.
The gift will be used to
complete construction of
the Explorer Wing; a portion
of the museum that will fea-
ture a 62-foot. Spanish
galleon similar to the type
that sailed in Florida's Gulf-
stream in earlier centuries
and a ariet, of other inter-
activr and educational
exhibits.'
On hand for the presenta-
tion were Renee Booth,
executive director of the


Children's Museum, Richard
Baron, president of the
board of directors for the
Children's Museum and
Doug Smith, Martin County
commissioner and honorary
museum board member.
"With the addition of the
Explorer Wing, the Chil-
dren's Museum of the Trea-
sure Coast will serve an
important role in our com-
munity, attracting visitors,
spurring 'economic growth,
and creating outstanding
educational opportunities,"
said Mr. Brown. "We are
pleased to be a part of the
development of this facility
that will give children of all
ages an opportunity to
explore their world."


The Explorer Wing is the
second phase of the Muse-
um's three-phased con-
struction project. Visitors to
the Explorer Wing will be
able to interact with all the
exhibits, whether it is taking
the helm of the galleon,
learning about our environ-
ment and the importance of
South Florida's waterways
by moving water through a
series of channels, or using
computers to go into a "vir-
tual" submarine to explore
shipwreck artifacts and the
ocean floor.
"Working hand-in-hand
with local school districts,
we will develop program-
ming and tours that include
fun, teachable elements that


reflect our community," said
Ms. Booth. "To ensure every
child has the opportunity to
participate in our activities,
we will engage social service
organizations to provide
comprehensive outreach to
all children. We thank Bank
of America for this gift and
for their support of our mis-
sion and vision."
When finished, the muse-
um will be a state-of-the-art
12,000-square foot waterfront
facility for children and their
families to explore and learn
through hands-on activities,
educational programs and
cultural experiences.
The Children's Museum of
the Treasure Coast is located
in Indian RiverSide Park in
lensen Beach.

Golden Gate gets new community center

Martin County inaugurated a new community
center in the Golden Gate area on Dec. 10 that will
enable 50 percent more neighborhood children to
participate in the county's programs.
The center's recreation leader, Tolliver Darville, said
she'd been limited to 40 children in the portable
structure utilized for the program in recent years.
The new 3,500-square-foot center will enable her to
accommodate up to 60 children.
The new community center is one of the county's
first experiences in building from modular concrete
components. The $500,000 building can withstand
winds up to' 186 mph and costs approximately 30
percent less than a building made of typical con-
struction materials. It was originally scheduled to
open in 2006 but suffered more than a year of delays
due to the state's lengthy permitting process of
modular concrete components.

Willie Gary accuser to pursue civil suit

Although the state attorney found no probable
cause to file rape charges against Stuart attorney
Willie Gary, his Port St. Lucie accuser is determined
to go forward with a civil suit, her lawyers confirmed.
Stuart attorneys Jerome Stone and Linda Capobian-
co, who represent the 25-year-old woman who has
not been identified, said it could be several months
before the case goes to trial.
The rape accusation stems from an incident at the
Best Western in downtown Stuart on Aug. 17, during
which the woman alleges she was raped by the
attorney.
In his interviews with police investigators, Mr. Gary
said the two had been meeting for consensual sex for
months and that the rape accusation was an attempt
to blackmail him for millions of dollars.
The woman, a former employee of Mr. Gary's law
firm, also,admitted to police of having a one-night
fling with Mr. Gary's son, Kenny Gary, while she was
separated from her husband. Shortly after that, the
law firm's offices were vandalized, with the primary
suspect being the woman's husband. The alleged
victim told investigators that Gary had worked out an
agreement with her for sex to avoid a criminal
investigation of her husband.

at what they viewed as the
lack of the state's oversight.
Although the state helps
manage the fund, it does
not provide guarantees
against losses.
"I think we ought to send
a letter to the governor and
whoever actually manages
these funds to express our
disillusion that anyone
would possibly put these in
any kind of high-risk
investment," Commission-
er Lee Weberman said.
"That's not what these
funds are supposed to be
about."
Commissioner Michael
DiTerlizzi said the county
should have received warn-
ings from the state about
the problem and hinted
that litigation might be a
possibility.
"This is a seriously large
amount of money, and
there is a fiduciary respon-
sibility to the taxpayers to
safeguard this money," he
said.. "We all thought the
state was doing a good job
safeguarding the money."
Martin County Clerk of
Circuit Court Marsha Ewing
said that the county's
investments in the fund
were the lowest in recent
history, but she says the
SBA's corrective measures
will eventually restore con-
fidence in the agency.
"For 25 years it's been the
safest and most liquid way
in which to earn a good rate
of return," she said. "I
believe the solution they've
come up with, and the
action that the trustees
have taken, is doable and
will be successful."
She explained that the
county has hired First
Southwest Asset Manage-
ment to help guide its
future investment strate-
gies. Although Martin
County will probably invest
again in the pool because
new investments aren't
restricted, officials are also
looking to diversify into two
different U.S. government
funds as well, she added.
The city of Stuart was one
of the municipalities that
pulled its money out early
ahead of the freeze. The
city's director of financial
services, Dottie Zaharako,
said negative reports on the
Bloomberg Financial News
Service and the lack of
answers from the SBA led
city officials to take quick
action to safeguard the $26
million it had invested.
"We pulled our money
out the Wednesday before
(Nov. 18)," she said. "There
were some question about
the problems, and we
called them and didn't get a
response. We decided it
would be less risky if we just
moved the money until we
got some answers.",
She said the fund's favor-
able. rate of return and
same day liquidity made it
attractive to local govern-


J


ments, but the city wouldn't
invest in it again right away.
"We can't really deter-
mine right now... we'll just
have to wait and see how
things shake out," she
added.
A spokeswoman for the
School District of Martin
County, Cathleen Brennan,
said the district did not pull
any money out of the fund
before Nov. 29 but said offi-
cifls were closely monitor-
ing its investments.
"Our daily operations are
not being affected by the
restrictions on the pool,"
she said. "The state is work-
ing on the issues of the SBA,
and we're going to give
them time to address those
issues." .
St. Lucie County was
more severely affected by
the fund's problems, with
$142 million in the invest-
ment pool on Nov. 29. St.
Lucie County Clerk of Cir-
cuit Court Ed Fry said he
was disillusioned with the
state's oversight and that
the fund's reputation had
been sullied.
The St. Lucie County
School District was another
investor that pulled its
funds out ahead of the
freeze. Assistant Superin-
tendent Tim Bargeron said
he'd been concerned about
the investment pool since a
Nov. 13 conference call with
the SBA, during which he
discovered that some of the
fund's securities had been
downgraded.
He said he wanted to be a
"good Floridian" and not
contribute to a run on the
fund, so he only pulled out
$12 million, a fraction of the
school board's investment.
Two weeks later, however,
when Bloomberg reported
that the securities were
defaulted and were not sim-
ply downgraded, as he said
he was told, he pulled out
$52 million more.
The state's governmental
entities have traditionally
preferred the Local Govern-
ment Investment Pool
because it provided liquidity
and earned more interest
than treasury bills. That's
now changed for the St.
Lucie County School Dis-I
trict, Mr. Bargeron says,
which has no plans to trans-
fer any funds back into the,
fund.
"We're diversifying in
some other ways," he said.
"We're transferring SBA
funds into a treasur--backed,
investment account. We're
al o looking at purchasing
treasury bonds directly."
Florida is not the only
state that has encountered
problems with state-run
investment pools as a result
of homeowners defaulting
on sub-prime mortgages.
The states of Maine and
Montana have also been
forced to restructure the
money-market-type funds
due to problems with
defaulted securities.

Editor's note: This is an
updated version ofa column
that ran on March 30.
If you don't already
subscribe to Consumer
Reports, you should. I
have been a subscriber for
as long as I can remember. I
rarely buy any product
without consulting this
great magazine. I also
subscribe to Consumer
Reports online edition,


which is even more current
than the regular magazine.
I recently received their
annual auto igsue, which no
car buying family should be
without. All libraries would
have this on hand.
Don't be fooled by other
magazines with similar
names purporting to
objectively analyze and
recommend products.
There is only one Consumer
Reports. They do not accept
any advertising and there-
fore are not beholden to any
companies. They even go
beyond this and will not
allow a retailer or manufac-
turer to use the name
Consumer Reports in their
advertising.
Even if Consumer Reports
gives a product a great
rating, that company
cannot mention this in their


advertising. If they do, they
get sued by Consumer
Reports. No other company
goes this far and is this
"squeaky clean."
I.D. Powers is a company
that ranks and compares
lots of products, including
cars, but they allow compa-
nies to use the JD Power
name to advertise their
products when they rated
them good. You can under-
stand why a consumer
might be just a little more
skeptical ofJ. D. Powers'
objectivity than Consumer
Reports
I am not saying that
Consumer Reports is
infallible. They do make
mistakes and they have
been successfully sued by
some companies that were
affected by their mistakes in
testing. But this is very rare.


EARL STEWART
On Cars

As a car dealer for almost
40 years, I have not always-
liked what I read about all of
the makes and models of
cars I have sold, but I
grudgingly had to admit
that the reports were almost


always accurate.
In fact, the last issue of CR
gave negative reviews to two
models of the cars I now
sell, Toyota. I have to
confess that with some
make and model cars I have
sold over the years, I was
very thankful that the
circulation of Consumer
Reports is not very large.
Their circulation is growing:
as consumers become more
educated and sophisticated.
This annual auto issue
should be a mandatory read
before you buy your next
used or new car.
Here are some of the
articles in this issue: "Top
Picks:" (the best new
vehicles they have tested),
"Best and Worst" (tells the
ones you definitely should-
n't buy), "Coming for 2008,"
',Who Make The Best Cars


"(best manufacturers), "Buy
Better on the Web" (Internet
is the best place to buy your
next car), "Reliability
'Trends" (repair histories on
all makes and models),
"What's Next in Auto Safety"
and "Used Cars, Best and
Worst."
Consumer Reports also
offers other car buying
services such as their "new
car price service," which
discloses the actual cost to
the dealers, rebate and
incentive information,
negotiating strategies and
their expert recommenda-
tions. They also offer a "used
car price service," which
provides an evaluation tool
kit that helps you establish
the right price for most used
cars made from 1995 to
2005.

Send in more rants

My rant is that the Rants &Raves section is almost gone.
Are people not writing in, or have you cut way back on the
space given to the column?
I reallylooked forward to thissection of your paper. Can't
we vent our opinion anymore or are we just bottled up until
we explode?
Come on, people, express yourselves. Hopefully the
Hometown News hasn't cut back on the allotted space.
The paper is less interesting to me as a result. Hopefully,
the column will get back to the way it was.
Editor's note: We welcome all submissions to the Rants &
Raves that are on a specific topic or of general interest to
readers. All are invited to participate in this community
forum.

Relating to traffic laws rants

I love Hometown News because it gives people an outlet
to voice their opinions.
When I read, "Follow all traffic laws," I could completely
relate. There really needs to be a driver's school course that
makes you drive around with a DMV staff member for at,
'least a couple hours maybe on the weekend and maybe
even charge a fee for it.
Not just driving around in the parking lot for a few min-
utes and then handing over a license. Continually, I have
people who don't use their turn signals, cut people off, talk-
ing on their cell phones, crossing over three lanes in front of
traffic to get over to that turning lane, riding in passing
lanes, and even trying to speed up so that you can't pass.
When I spoke with an officer as to why people aren't ever
pulled over for these things all he could say is that 95 per-
cent of his tickets were for speeding. If this is one thing
people are getting penalized for why aren't the other law-
breakers getting penalized as well?

More on traffic rules

Kudos to whoever wrote, "Follow all traffic rules." I could-
n't have said it better myself. The part that sums it up best is
"driving is about courtesy and being predictable." The sad
part is the author of"Obey the speed limit" wouldn't know a
common courtesy to his fellow man if it bit him in the face.
The whole world would be a nicer place if we were all
more courteous to each other, not only on the road, but
everywhere.

Documentary is informative

Iwantedto let everyone know that there is a good docu-
mentary out there called "Sicko." It can be rented at Block-
buster or any video rental store. It is a film about health
insurance and what they do to good people in the U.S.
Not only is it an eye-opening film, but also it is also very
sad to realize how some people are treated here in a country
that is supposed to be so great.

Medical technicians need more training

This is in response to the rant about medicaltechnicians.
I wholeheartedly agree with N ou, but you have given them
top-quality title.
Mostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of
training and are allowed to administer medication, take
blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of med-
ical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses
should perform.
This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do
these things in other states. No wonder there are always
outbreaks of infections and other diseases that even the
physicians have a hard time diagnosing.
You see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want
to call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a sta-
tus symbol. I'm sure they do not even know which end goes
on the patient's chest. This is what nursing has come to.
What a disaster.

Unfit mothers should not be driving
Some people are not made to be mothers.i was driving
side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat,
the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell
phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had
no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my
eyes. Where are the police?
This person could get into a car accident. What has hap-


pened to parents? Don't they have any brains?


opened to parents? Don't they have any brains?
I pity that poor child.

And these little piggies ...
In your latest paper, you have two little concrete piggies
return home. They didn't return home to Whispering Pines,
they returned to Whispering Pond. In Whispering Pond we
speak in English, in Whispering Palms you have to speak
Spanish.

Pronunciation of years shouldn't be arbitrary
In consideration of the length of time it takes the Ameri-
can 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 thousand
nine hundred and twenty seven." Just another antiquity.

One person's 'flyover' is
another person's 'overpass'

The gentle reader who is mystified by the term "flyover"
would be nonplussed by the term, "roundabout."
SBoth terms, of course, are quite civil in the United King-
dom where the one is an "overpass" and the other a "traffic
circle.",

Two boys may have needed box of food

I just read (a rant about a woman who) saw somebody
with two little boys (who) picked up a box of Boy Scout food.
I don't know why this lady would be fussing about that. I
can't see why these childreii should be denied food. I'm sure
that if they picked up this box of food, (they) must have real-
ly needed it.
I think this was selfish of this lady fussing because (the)
food was supposed to be going to people that needed it any-
way..
I really think that these little boys really needed this food
or they wouldn't have picked it up. I don't consider this
stealing whatsoever.

Support the troops with a united America
I am addressing the (person who wrote) "Best way to support
troops is to bring them home."
Somehow, the heart-feltplea got lost in political translation.
The author clearly expressed outlandish accusations that our
president, vice president and big business have profited from
this war without a shred of evidence to back them up. Such is
the tactic of left-wing, secular progressives, political motivation
and manipulation is behind it all. I suppose if lies are told often
enough and no one refutes them, people tend to believe and


accept them rather than consider the source from which they
originate.'
If I wanted to get political, I would point out that the U.S. did
not start this war. We were at war long before Sept 11. I would
point out that the previous administration (Clinton, for those
with short memories) cut military spending, forcing the canni-
balization of parts from other military equipment, leaving us
weakened by un-preparedness.
I would point out that our president, at that time, failed to pro-
tect our embassies and the USS Cole. I would also point out that
we have a Congress and Senate dominated by politicians with
mush for backbone who, for the past four years, have sought
appeasement with the enemy by trying to deprive our military
of much-needed support (monetarily and morally).
Forcing a premature withdrawal of troops would result in the
deaths of more helpless people. Moreover except for a few bad
eggs," our military has performed with honor and valor. Our
soldiers do not need a bunch of wimpy politicians, Hollywood
dimwits and news media siding with the enemy and telling the
rest of the world that the U.S. is the reason for all the terror.
World War II was won because our country was unified
against the enemy. We did not cut-and-run; we stayed the
course. Vietnam was lost because the drug-culture flower chil-
dren protested in the streets and the politicians, who got us
involved in the first place, starved the military by withholding
monetary support. The culture may have changed, but the
politicians have not. Honest dissent makes us strong, but bold-
faced treason and anarchy is not acceptable behavior for citi-
zens while our soldiers, are fighting for our right to live in peace.
Whatever happened to the mono, "UnitedWe Stand?"
So, I submit: The best support we can.give our troops is to
"show them a united America If the enemy saw this, they would
shake in their books and the rest of the world would have more
respect for us.
Editor's note: You seem, however, to also want to be the sole
arbiter of "honest dissent."Edward R Murrow said, "'We must not
confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I
think the soul ofAmerica dies with it."

Doesn't understand anti-USA-made rant
SThis is in response to the ranter who commented about
my efforts to purchase only products made in the USA.
The ranter implied that my American-made spatula had
broken. Quite the contrary. I ati' ptoud to report it is still
going strong and serving up good food to my family.
It shocked me that this ranter would infer that overseas-
made products are superior to those made in the USA. I was
also shocked at the ranter's apparent joy that the outsourc-
ing of American jobs was causing people in other nations to
benefit at the expense of our struggling middle-class.
I am wondering if the ranter has expressed this joy to peo-
ple whose pets died from tainted pet food imported from
China. Maybe he or she would like to express that sentiment
to the parents who watched their toddler pass out after
swallowing a bead from a Chinese-made toy.
According to an Associated Press/Business Week article,
"The coating on the beads metabolized into a chemical
compound known as the date rape drug."
SMore children who swallowed the beads wound up in the
hospital.
Need I also mention the numerous recalls of toxic toys
containing dangerous amounts of lead?
I can't imagine how any true American could gloat about
the suffering of his countrymen, as did this ranter.
Maybe it's because too much of that Chinese lead has got-

Prosecuting Michael Vick
is ridiculous

Are federal prosecutors so hard up for
work that they are reduced to prosecuting
football players like (Michael) Vick for a
dog fight.
Heavens, we've got terrorists, murderers,
drug dealers by the dozens and there they
are wasting their time chasing a football
player because he runs a dog fighting con-
test.
This is absolutely ridiculous. They are
wasting taxpayers' money on a silly pur-
suit.

Upset with address listing
in white pages

An old friend from out of state called the
other day and mentioned he was surprised
that I was as old as I was. Well, I was very sur-
prised as well.
When I asked how he knew, he said he did a
reverse search on www.whitepages.com and
my age with a plus (sign) showed up along
with a map to my house.
When I do give out my phone number, I
don't necessarily want the person to know
where I live.
OK, I thought I'll call AT' &T and have my
named removed from the next phone book
that comes out. Low and behold, I find out I
will be charged a monthly fee of $2.54 to
remove my name.
Well I am used to paying for things that I
want, but not for paying for things that I don't
want. This might seem like a small thing but I
either don't have enough to do or I'm correct
in being irritated. I'm sure a lot of people don't
know this information is available when you
have a listed number.
Editor's note: Telephone companies have
always charged more for unlisted numbers.
Also, numbers that are listed have always been
listed with addresses. This is true fbr regular
and online phone books. As for ages, however,
we're stumped as to why that information was
available.

A'Happy Holiday"
to all harms no one

I am sending out more than 100 "Happy
Holidays" and "Seasons Greetings" cards
this year.
Why? Because I have friends of all faiths,
and I want to wish them well this holiday
season. I don't get insulted when I receive
"Merry Christmas" cards, even though I
don't celebrate Christmas. I'm just happy
that someone cares enough to think of me
, .during the holidays.
Why are so many people insulted these
days about being wished a happy holiday
Season? \Vhat harm does it cause? Should I
send out "Happy Hanukkah" cards to all of
my friends because that's what I happen to
celebrate? Lei'r not be ridiculous, folks. Talk


about being overly politically correct. Get
over it.
Happy holidays.

Americans in Maine show
their support for troops

We may have been duped into WorldWar II.
We definitely were duped into the lraqWar.
I suppose in both we were defending our
country, but in this one it seems that once
started, the objectives changed.
My father believed in his commitment in
WWII. My son believes in his commitment in
Iraq. He is (in the) Army Corp of Engineers
and tells me about the schools and roads and
other accomplishments that are not in the
news. I see the body count and worry.
Actually, when Maine's 103rd returned from
Iraq, they first were in New York for a week.
Then, when the convoy hit the Maine Tbrn-
pike, Maine State Troopers escorted the con-
voy with flashing lights. They were greeted
with a large banner on the Kittery overpass:
"Welcome Home Maine's 103rd."
There were people cheering; the high school
band playing..Then there was the same at the
York, Kennebunkport, Saco, Old Orchard
Beach, Scarboro exits. When they stopped for
lunch, it was on the house.
Finally at the Portland exit, Portland police
and fire engines joined the escort. Here peo-
ple were lined up all along the streets cheering
for the men and women who made it home.
If only the old saying, "So goes Maine; so
goes the nation," still held true.
The Portland Press Herald was responsible
for this response. In the week before the
troops returned, the paper reprinted all the
articles and fed the excitement. Well no songs
came out of it. At least this time, unlike (Viet-
nam), the people are supportive of the troops
if not of the administration whose objectives
are questionable. I just want there to be a bet-
ter way than war.
I also want to thank Hometown News where
I feel we really have a pulse on the people.

Voting, or not, is allowed
because of freedom of choice

To those holier than thou people who
are critical of non-voters: give it a rest.
This is a free country where you have
the freedom to vote or not to vote. It is
called freedom of choice. If one is going
to vote he/she should take the time to
educate themselves on the issues so they
can make an intelligent choice when
entering the voting booth.
If one doesn't know who or what they're
voting for or against, one shouldn't vote.
I vote in every election and that's my
choice. Before voting, I find out all I can
about the candidates for office and the
issues on the ballot. When I enter the
booth, I have a sample ballot marked
with my choices. Voting is quick and
easy.
There are a lot of reasons that we are
unaware of why people don't vote. They
are still good Americans.


Dads
From page Al
that focuses on good dads,
new dads and those that
just need encouragement."
One of the first things Mr.
Cardno did was implement
teen pregnancy-prevention
classes at the now defunct
Martin County boot camp,
in an effort to keep young
men from becoming
fathers before they were
emotionally ready for the
responsibility. It was there
he first realized the severity
of the problem, since sev-
eral of those in the class
were already fathers.
His challenge was to
teach them how to reach
out to their children, even
though they were incarcer-
ated.
With the blessing of the
boot camp staff, he began a
weekly class in which he
brought girlfriends and
their babies into the insti-
tution for some one-on-
one family bonding.
He knew it was ai risky
and unconventional plan,
but the time spent with
their children really
changed the young men,
he said. It also gave him a
more profound perspective
on the problem of raising
children without a father.
"The comment I got from
most of these guys was, 'I
never had a father when I
was a kid, and I don't want
my kid to grow up like
that,'" he said. "They didn't
even know what a father
was supposed to do. That's
why the education was so
important."
In order for the children
not to regard their absen-
tee fathers as strangers and
begin to recognize their
voices, Mr. Cardno had the
yourfg men read and record
bedtime stories and then
sent the tapes and accom-
panying books home with
the mothers to play at
night. It also got them into
the habit of reading to their
children, he said.
In order to help them
begin taking financial
responsibility for their chil-
dren, Mr. Cardno instituted
a new program that provid-
ed the fathers with super-
market vouchers for dia-
pers and other essentials in
exchange for extra chores
around the boot camp.
"If we want to make


changes long-term, then
we have to educate them
on what's expected of them
as parents," Mr. Cardno
said.
One of the center's main
thrusts is to address the low
paternity acknowledgment
rate among unwed fathers,
or in other words, the lack
of their name on their
child's birth certificate. A
lot of young men simply
assume it will be there, he
said, and if it's not, they
end up without any legal
rights to their children.
The Father & Child
Resource Center also offers
a free family law forum on
the first Tuesday evening of
every month. Stuart attor-
ney Debra Klein has been
volunteering her services
to the center for several
years. One of her goals is to
help educate fathers on
how to acknowledge pater-
nity after the fact and win
visitation rights for their
children.
"The sooner they can
come to this kind of pro-
gram, especially if they're
people without resources,
the better off they're going
to be in the process," she
said. "They can learn what
their rights are, as well as
learn from other peoples'
mistakes."
According to Mr. Cardno,
a new father only has 90
days after the child is born
to get his name on the birth
certificate at the hospital
without a fee. Afterwards,
he must go through the
court system and pay court
costs.
Ms. Klein explained that
young fathers frequently
find it a daunting task to
complete the paperwork
and represent themselves
in a court system that tra-
ditionally favors the moth-
ers in custody battles. She
hopes to help level the
playing field for them with
her guidance.
"If it seems like they got
the information, then they
have a shot at it (winning
parental rights) and mak-
ing the situation right, and
that's rewarding, she said.
Steve, whose last name is
being withheld since he's
currently in litigation, is
one such father. He's been
taking advantage of the
free legal advice offered by
the center to try and win
his secondary parental
rights for his 5-year-old


daughter. He said the
Father & Son Resource
Center has given him hope
by helping him navigate
the complicated legal
process.
"I think the most impor-
tant thing is that it's given
me confidence as a father
and a renewed focus on
parental responsibility on
my part," he said.
Mr. Cardno also carries
his message about parental
responsibility into Martin
County high schools,
telling freshman just how
costly it is, both emotional-
ly and financially, to feed
and care for a baby. In
addition, he instructs new
fathers-to-be as a regular
guest speaker at Martin
Memorial's childbirth edu-
cation classes and encour-
ages fathers to participate
in their children's educa-
tion through an annual
Take Dads to School event.
The center's latest thrust
is a 12-week, informal out-
reach program called 24/7
Dad. Begun in August by
counselor Antoine
Pechaceck, the classes
touch on everything from
the new fathers' relation-
ships with their own
fathers to the right and
wrong forms of discipline.
A young father himself,
Mr. Pechaceck said one'of
the hardest things for most
absentee fathers is the
resistance they sometimes
get from the child's mother
or her family.
"They love and care
about their children, but
there's a barrier there," he
said. "They have to make
everybody realize that they
want to be real."
Mr. Pechaceck has
recently launched 24/7
Dad in Spanish for the
young 'fathers in
Indiantown, where the
center has regularly
worked counseling teen
mothers as well. He stress-
es the fact, however, that
the center is just as con-
cerned about the rights of
children as it is with the
fathers' rights.
"It's about what's right
for the children," he said.
"We believe that a child has
a right to have both the
father and mother active in
their life."

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
As I gaze over my cup of
tea through a dreamy Victo-
rian window onto an idyllic
.scene of green, graceful
palms and sailboats afloat a
tranquil bay, I have to con-
vince myself that this is real
and I've not simply stepped
into the pages of someone's
coffeetable book.
The magical sensation of
being on permanent vaca-
tion is not by accident, but
rather by the design of
David Tanzer and Petra-Lee
Thomas, the husband and
wife business team and
owners of Day of Delight
Spa in the heart of Stuart's
Old Millionaires' Row.
We're sitting in the Eng-
lish Victorian Room of the
Tea House, their newest
venture housed in an 1894
home built by merchant
seaman Walter Kitchins.
The couple traveled the
country visiting a variety of
tea houses in order to com-
bine the best of all of them
into what Mr. Tanzer calls
"Petra's Extreme Tea
House." ,
The Tea House lies just a
few gorgeous steps from
their first business on the
property, Day of Delight
Spa, and together the two
businesses offer guests an


experience and an escape
from the mundane that's
like no other in Stuart or
anywhere else along the
Treasure Coast.
But Ms. Thomas' dream
of creating a unique magi-
cal world did not come eas-
ily or quickly. Before she
ever opened the spa in
1997, the 'German native
who grew up in Connecti-
cut knew what she did not
want: the institutional and,,
strip-mall feel of ordinary
day spas.
What she did.want was to..,
incorporate the European
sensation of individuality
and uniqueness, and one
other thing it had to be
on the water. When she
finally found the property
where the spa is located,
she said it was the house
that found her, rather than
the other way around.
"It was a :magical
moment," she said. "Gravity
was pulling me to this sec-
tion. You feel like you're a
million miles away here."
And whether you're sip-
ping on one of the 45 differ-
ent blends of tea in any of
the .Tea' House's three
unique environments -

saged and pampered in Day

Hometown News adds to management team


STAFF REPORT

Jim Kendall has joined
Hometown News' manage-
ment team as chief execu-
tive officer.
"I have worked with Jim
and/or been associated with
Jim for much of the past 25
years," said Steve Erlanger,
publisher and chief operat-
ing officer. "We are very
pleased to have his expertise
join what I believe to be one
of the best management
teams in the industry."
Mr. Kendall was previous-
ly of The Flyer, a Tampa-
based publishing company
specializing in shopper
magazines featuring classi-
fied and display advertising.
There he directed revenue
and circulation growth. He
began his newspaper career
in 1980 with The Flyer of


Miami. He
joined the
paper as a
graduate
student
doing mar-
keting and
feasibility
studies for
expansion.
After getting
his MBA he Jim Kendall
joined The
Flyer as a sales representa-
tive and moved through the
ranks to become senior sales
executive.
"I am very excited to join
the Hometown News team,"
said Mr. Kendall. "In five
years, the Hometown News
team has earned significant
national recognition," : Mr.
Kendall said.
"We plan to continue to
build on the success, which
has been achiie\ ed." said Mr.


Kendall, "I view this as an
extraordinary opportunity
to be associated with
-an extremely talented team."
At its spring meeting of
this year in St. Petersburg,
Mr. Kendall was elected
president of Community
Papers of Florida for 2008-
09. His term begins Jan. 1.
Mr. Kendall has been active-
ly involved in industry trade
organizations throughout
his career.
Mr. Erlanger said the addi-
tion of Mr. Kendall would
help the company further
along its path of aggressive
growth throughout the state.
"Hometown News has
grown to be one of the
largest newspaper groups in
the country and the largest
circulated newspaper in
Florida in only five years,"
Mr. Erlanger said. "The time
was right to bolster the man-


Delight
From page A8


of Delight, you're always
pulled back to that exquisite
view of the St. Lucie River.
That spectacular vista is
what sets Day of Delight
apart from most other area
day spas and sets the tone
for those who visit.
"When people arrive,
whether by boat or car, it's
the first thing they feel,"
Ms. Thomas said. "As soon
as they step onto the prop-
erty, they already feel. the
ambience and seclusion."
That special environment
is what completes the
panorama of comprehen-
sive restoration the couple
strives to provide.
"It's not just about physi-
cal maintenance," Mr.
Tanzer said. "It's about
mental maintenance as
well."
The lush grounds sur-
rounding Day of Delight
and the Tea House are filled
with mango and avocado
trees, herbs and flowers,
most of which are utilized
in the elegant cuisine and
the luxurious spa treat-
ments.


In order to make Day of
Delight an even more relax-
ing experience for guests,
Ms. Thomas designed each
unique treatment room to
be able to offer all spa serv-
ices except hair and-nails,
something almost unheard
of in the industry.
."We didn't want to force
our guests to have to move
from room to room, just
when they're beginning to
get comfortable," she said.
" The spa's extensive menu
of services includes a vari-
ety of massages and body
wraps, intensified facials,
hair and scalp treatments,
Champagne acrylic nails,
painless waxing, perma-
nent makeup and much
more. There are even three
distinct couples' massage
areas, including one under
a pavilion overlooking the
river.
Guests can choose from a
number of special spa
packages designed for both
men and women, as well as
purchase gift certificates
for services, which make a
truly special present now


during the holidays.
Ms. Thomas strives to
share the European per-
spective on spa services
and body treatments,
which in the Old World are
not considered luxuries,
but rather, a necessary part
of life, she explains. So she
offers regular guests a vari-
ety of spa memberships,
which provide discounts on
services, free admission to
special events and a 10 per-
cent discount on spa prod-
ucts.
The Day of Delight spa
and the Tea House are locat-
ed at 206 Atlanta Ave., just
northwest of the Roosevelt
Bridge in Stuart.

Ask The Jeweler
Vintage Jewelry Give
something this year that is
totally unique. Are you tired
of seeing the same jewelry in
all of the mall stores?
Wouldn't you like to give
something that is different
than that "cookie cutter" jew-
elry shown everywhere? Well,
that is what an estate jeweler
specializes in.
There are many benefits in
purchasing estate jewelry.
Price is one of the reasons to
buy estate jewelry, because
someone else has already
paid the high markup.
Unique is another reason.
Every week new and unique
jewelry goes into our show-
cases.
We are often asked by our
customers about buying
"used" jewelry. The are usu-
ally concerned about giving
something pre-owned as a
gift. Well, at St, Lucie jewelry,
we have a staff of four expert
jewelers that completely
restore every piece to its
original condition. In fact we
are experts in antique jewelry
restoration, so you are
always assured of a perfect
piece that will last another 50
years.
This holiday season look
around and see what is out
there at other jewelers,
including price, value and
something different. Then
come to St. Lucie Jewelry
last and compare. Be it dia-
monds, gold, antique jewelry,
or watches, your will consis-
tently find St. Lucie Jewelry
to be the most competitive
and the most fun you will
ever have buying jewelry

ship the first packages to
soldiers in Iraq the first
week in January.
Suggestions for the supplies
came from a Hobe Sound sol-
dier currently stationed in
Iraq.
"We talked with 2nd Lt.
Trevor Plummer, who is sta-
tioned with the 3rd Infantry
,Division in Iraq," said Col.
Weierman.
"He was home for Thanks-
giving, and we went over the
list of supplies together," he


said.
Col. Weierman. said the
Cadets for Vets will also accept
notes from children .and
adults, addressed to soldiers
in Iraq. The notes will be sent
with the donated supplies.
"The cadets hope that the
entire Treasure Coast com-
munity will get behind them
and donate items from the list
or make cash contributions to
offset the costs of shipping,"
said Col. Weierman.
During the month of


December, supplies or cash
donations may be dropped
off at one of the following
three locations:

Greatest gift you can give to the


world is to live by the heart


f we want Mother
Nature to work for us,
we have to work with it.
This is done by surrender-
ing our lower'will or ego
and asking the higher will
of the spirit to work for us.
It wants to.
We either live by choice
or by chance in the world.
When we say, "I hope
this happens" or "I hope
that happens," it isn't likely
to happen. Why? Because
it is living by the mind
instead of spirit and trying
to will the thing into being.
Even if it happens, the
rewards are generally
limited and fleeting
because of the lack of
spiritual blessing upon it.
The heart or instincts
inside us is where our
vision and truth come
from. They say, "This feels
good or that doesn't feel
good." This is where
choice comes from.
Our very first impres-
sions are always the best
when we listen to, trust
and act on them. When we
give ourselves choices, we
live a better life. Also, it
reduces fear or worry,
because we have set
positive ideas in motion
and we begin to see
positive results coming
back. This gives a sense of
well being instead of anger
or frustration.
There is a rich store-
house oflove, joy, peace,
health, abundance,
creativity and happiness
living inside each of us
right now, crying to be
discovered and set free.
Our main mission in life
should be to take this
inner journey and find our
true self and purpose.
Then create,a family to
share it with. Most of us
create the family first.
It is never too late to find
our.true self, even if this is
the pattern.
Start with one talent.
EVerybn'ehas at -least one
talent. Then practice until
you perfect it. Read an
'interesting book. Take a
class that will increase
your knowledge about
your greatest passion.
Create new friendships
with others who share a
similar passion. Get some


rhythm going in your life.
Move it forward. Joy lives
in the heart. Do something
nice for yourself every day.
One of the greatest gifts
you can give another
person around the holi-
days is a better you.
Tie a ribbon around
yourself on Christmas
morning with a card that
says, "I am giving you a
new and better me," to
someone you love. What a
great gift to last all the
year. We can't give some-
one else something
meaningful if it doesn't live
in our own heart first.
It's never too late to start
the journey within. You
have it in you. I know you
want it. It's yours for the
taking. Why not go for it?
It's your "higher self"
calling. Those inner
yearnings are not going to
go away so you may as
well heed their call. This
process is not about family
or work.
It isn't about religion. It's
- all about you and redis-
covering your own her-
itage as a unique, valuable
woman or man. There is
no one else exactly like
you on earth. You have a
unique set of gifts, skills
and talents.
There is a lot more to life
than just survival. We are
supposed to have more
than we need for three

Know what, how to pack


when preparing for a cruise


he mysterious
formula for packing
for a cruise can make
a rocket scientist run off
and build a shack on a
deserted island.
Don't despair!


REALITY CHECK
In the past, some car buyers found
that their new vehicles did not live up
to the miles-per-gallon estimate that
appeared on the sticker, largely
because the old method for calculat-
ing the m.p.g. estimates did not
reflect real-world driving conditions.
With this in, mind, the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) has reworked the m.p.g.
calculation formula for 2008. The
new estimate reflects the fact that
many vehicles spend more than half
their time in stop-and-go traffic,
in which fuel economy is severely
compromised. Higher speeds, the
use of air-conditioning, and aggres-
sive driving, all of which lead to
lower miles-per-gallon figures, are
also incorporated Into the new m.p.g.
calculations. This will give buyers a
better idea of expected fuel economy.
This column on fuel economy is
brought to you by ADVANTAGE
FORD OF STUART. We pride
ourselves on customer service, your
needs always come first, A lot of our
business comes from referrals from
satisfied customers. Conveniently
located at 4000 SE. Federal
Highway, we hope that you think
of us next time your vehicle needs
to be serviced. Call 772.781.6520
if you have automotive questions
or if you'd like to schedule an
appointment. We service most
major makes and models in addition
to Ford and Lincoln/Mercury cars.
HINT: Because fuel efficiency can be
compromised by colder outdoor
temperatures, the new EPA mileage.
estimates will take this factor into
account when calculating vehicle
mileage estimates for 2008.


Here are some great tips
for packing for your seven-
night cruise without
needing a shipping con-
.tainer.
For gentlemen cruisers,
a dark suit, cwo good
shirts, a pair of slacks and
dress shoes can take you
through the seven nights
without repeating an
outfit.
if you are sailing the
Caribbean, three pairs of
shorts and three shirts
work well with the mix-
and-match method. Also,
don't forget good walking
shoes and a bathing suit.
These items will get you
through the week. The only
other items of course
would be underwear and
toiletries.
Be sure to pack medica-
tions and a change of
underwear in carry-on
luggage, as well as a shirt
and slacks. This is in the
event of lost luggage.
Passports and cruise
documents' should be on
your person, not packed.
For women cruisers,
bring three skirts and/or
slacks with blouses or
sweaters, which can be
mixed and matched.
Dresses are great, but you
only normally get one
night's wear out of a dress.
If you really need to have
that special dress, be sure
it is a dress that packs well.
Women normally like to
have shoes for every outfit,
but for a cruise, pick out a
basic pair that can take
you from country club
casual to formal attire.
Daytime on a cruise, for
women, is basically the
same as for men: three
pairs of shorts or capris;
three tops, which can be
mixed and matched with
the shorts and capris; a
bathing suit; a good pair of
walking shoes; and sandals
for the pool/spa area.
Women will probably
have room for thai sun-

dress if you stick to the
above guideline. Of course,
we need our toiletries and
make-up.
Most cruise lines provide
shampoo and conditioner
in your stateroom bath. As
a precautionary measure,
you might want to pack a
travel size container of
both. Most ships have
hairdryers in the state-
room. If in doubt, ask a
travel agent for informa-
tion.
SCheck with your travel
agent to see if the ship you
have chosen has a self-
service laundry. If it does,
you might want to pack a
small bottle of laundry
detergent and some fabric
softener sheets in case you
need to wash clothing.
Sending laundry out to
be cleaned can be expen-
sive on a ship, and most
things are returned
starched and ironed, even
underwear.
When you are selecting
your wardrobe, reconsider
those jeans that you were
going to take. They are
bulky and take a lot of
room in the suitcase, plus
jeans are unacceptable in
the evening for dining.
Opt for lighter-weight
casual slacks. A must for all
cruises is a lightweight
jacket; a rain repellent one
is a plus. If you are sailing
to Alaska, New . a
England/Canada or -_
Northern Europe you may
want to have a fleece.lined
jacket as well. Also, in
cruising to these areas, you
might want to substitute
slacks for shorts. Even in
the Caribbean, women will
want a light jacket or
sweater for onboard, as it
can be quite cool in the
evenings.
Here is a hint to avoid
wrinkles when packing:
roll instead of fold. This
promotes fewer wrinkles.
Shirts and tops folded
within each other mini-
mize wrinkles. Pack socks
and or hosiery inside shoes
and put shoes in the
plastic bags you'get your
newspaper in.
Put any liquids into
zippered plastic bags. This
will prevent spillage and
ruined clothing.
Another tip is to use
those vacuum-style plastic
bags for bulky items of
clothing. It will save space;
imagine fewer suitcases to
transfer.

Prepare your plants for cooler weather


th the heart of our
Florida winter
coming into play,
cold snaps and possible
freezing temperatures will
be the rule for the next
several weeks.
Many of our plants will
withstand the cold temper-
atures with grace, while
others will struggle and
wilt at the first sign of a
chill. Since many of us do
some serious planting
during the cooler winter
months, the weather may
pose some serious chal-
lenges for our precious
plants.
One of the best ways to
offer protection to the root
base of plants is to use
mulching material. You can
recycle many of the
products you already have
around your home. Use
bark from trees that you
might have cut down or
bark that has come loose
from pine trees.
Straw also can make an
excellent mulching materi-
al. If you live in a rural
area, straw may be avail-
able from some local
farmers.
Sawdust can also be
used. If you are a wood-
worker or do a lot of
remodeling, save that
sawdust you vacuum up
and recycle it in your yard.
Peat moss also makes a,
great mulch and is readily
available at most lawn and
garden centers.
If you have oak trees or
live in a heavily wooded
area, you can use leaves as
a protective barrier around
the base of your plants.
You can even use your old
grass clippings.
By using the mentioned
materials for protecting
your plants, you are
helping to recycle our
natural resources and
saving more cypress trees
that are rapidly being
depleted by the wide-
spread use of commercial
products, such as cypress
mulch.

If you require a treatment for

To participate, you must be

Qualified participants will

Also, all the above-
named materials will
slowly degrade in the soil
and add natural nutrients
that will be beneficial to
the plants.
In order for the mulching
material to be effective in
the event of a low tempera-
ture or freeze scenario, the
material should be at least
2- to 3-inches thick, but
keep a margin of about 1
inch from the main part of
the plant trunk. There are
some exceptions, such as
citrus trees. You should
never mulch around citrus
plants as this can actually
cause harm to the tree.
It is extremely important
that your garden be moist
prior to a cold snap. The
combination of dry soil
and cold temperatures can
cause serious damage to
tender plants.
If our area should come
under a freeze watch or
warning, take some extra
precautions to minimize
the damage to your plants.
Covering your plants will
be the next step you need
to take. Use cloth, not
plastic, when protecting
your plants. Plastic can act
like a greenhouse and

cloth, be sure to use
if possible, so that t

direct contact with t
plant. After the cold
weather or freeze ev

material promptly.

$570,000 and reducing
the size of the parking lot.
They were still short
$144,000, however, and
needed the commission-
ers' approval to borrow the
money from the county's
general fund. That fact
worried Commissioner
Sarah Heard, who thought
the project should be
downsized in the light of
potential budgetary prob-
lems in 2008 due to pro-
posed property tax reform.
"I think we're building
too much here, and it
should have been scaled
back," she said. "We're
going to be impacting
future revenues with both
capital and operating rev-
enues, and we don't have
any idea where those are
going to come from."
Commissioner DiTerlizzi
said any delay would
increase the project's ulti-
mate cost, while County
Administrator Duncan Bal-
lantyne said the county
would lose a $500,000
grant by delaying the proj-
ect.
"We have pushed the
envelope with this proj-
ect," Mr. Ballantyne said.


"We have a substantial
half-million dollar grant,
we have participation with
the Library Foundation,
and we want- to keep the
Library Foundation on
board."
The commission voted
unanimously to approve
the additional funds and
enable the addition to go
forward, which will
include new space for chil-
dren's and youth programs
and a wireless Internet
cafe.
Commissioner DiTerlizzi
said later that he is still
determined to find a tem-
porary facility for the
library in Palm. City so
"children don't have to ride
their bikes to Stuart." He
emphasized that his dis-
trict did not have the funds
to pay rent on a temporary
library facility and issued a
plea to any one willing to
become its sponsor.
"I'm hoping for a mira-
cle," he said. "I'm hoping
someone will come along
and help us out with a
donation for the opportu-
nity to keep a library in
Palm City."

adversity

rThe show must go
on" is one of the
T most well-known
show business sayings, and
it went on at fine style as
"Cinderella," the play I'd
followed from the first
auditions in August, came
to life on the Lyric Theatre
stage.
At dress rehearsal two
nights before opening
night, Vicki Goulet, who
played the Stepmother, fell
and shattered her foot.
Director Jami Dolan
stepped in to the role with
one night's rehearsal. The
cast members were devas-
tated, but they vowed that
they'd make magic happen.
It's hard to be completely
objective when you've seen
a show take shape from the
beginning and have come
to know and care about the
performers.
In any event, I don't do
reviews. I do know that I
have a real appreciation for
the amount of work
involved in any production.
from a school play to -',
community theater to
professional theater.
In community theater,
the performers are volun-
teers, with day jobs. They
rehearse at night and on
weekends. They do it
because they love the
theater. In several cases,
there were parent-child cast
members, enjoying a
special experience together.
The set designer, Darren
Cripps, is a professional
who used to design sets for
Pink Floyd and the British
Broadcasting Corporation.
He gets paid, but far less
than his professional rate,
and he does it because he
loves to see the children
involved, even putting
paint brushes in their
hands to finish painting the
sets. His sets did create
magic, and he didit on a
budget, which is all the
more remarkable.
Dolan had a job that
Seemed almost impossible
to a non-theater person.
Every move that every
performer made, every arm
gesture, every tilt of the
head, was part of her vision.

'A Christmas Carol' brings


back a traditional Christmas


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Matt Kamprath has been playing
Ebenezer Scrooge in the Nebraska
Theatre Caravan's Production of "A
Christmas Carol" for 21 years, so it's
rot too surprising that the actor
doesn't own a cell phone, and I have
to call him through his hotel's central
number.
"I don't like technology," he said
with a laugh. "'I'm 'old school.' I'm
not of this century. I'm not even of
the last century. I was born too late."
"A Christmas Carol" comes to the
Lyric Theatre on Dec. 21 and the

Week of 12-14-2007

Aries-March 21-April 19
Rise up from any earthly restrictions and con-
tinue to transform yourself into the free-spirit-
ed, beautiful soul that you truly are. It's time to
let go of any restrictive bonds of the past, fully
open the heart and soar like an eagle to new
and greater heights. You have it in you. You
were born for greatness. Go for it and continue
to win.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Recognize each day that the universe is your
source. Give thanks and continue to find ways
to intensify your energy into healthy thought
forms and ideas that reflect the use of your
natural talents and gifts. Then move your proj-
ects forward one day at a time until you see
them becoming strong and fruitful. This is the
winning formula.


Sunrise Theatre on Dec. 23.
Mr. Kamprath's road to his signa-
ture role was a roundabout one.
"I got a phone call that said that
(the actor playing) Bob Cratchit had
nodes on his vocal chords and would
I step in," he said. "I told them I'd
really love to play Scrooge. There was
a pause. She said that there were
some problems with the fellow play-
ing Scrooge, and 10 days later I was
asked, 'How would you like to play
Scrooge?' It fell into my lap."
For Mr. Kamprath, being a part of
Christmas is important to him.
"It's trite, but since I was a kid,
Christmas was it for me. Nuts to the


spending and buying; it's a special
moment. My parents owned two
recordings of a radio broadcast of "A
Christmas Carol" with Lionel tarry-
more as Scrooge. By the third grade,
I had memorized it, doing different
voices for the characters. Then years
pass and the role falls into my lap."
Mr. Kamprath came to understand
the character of'Scrooge after play-
ing him for many years, and saysthat
the word that embodies the man
everyone loves to hate is gratitude.,
"I believe Scrooge has become a
stereotype," he said. "Audience

Gemini-May 21-June 21
The power to make wise choices comes,
through the instincts, up through the heart and
pop into the mind. When you feel unsure about
what to do, wait. The timing isn't quite right. If
you jump the gun and move on without this
divine inner guidance, you will have to go back
and try to fix things. Patience is a virtue.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You know you are making progress when you
feel encouragement coming from close
friends. The happiness in your heart ripples
out to theirs and then comes back multiplied
to you. You demonstrate the essence of
unconditional love, which is giving without
expecting anything back. If we all could only
be more like you.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
When you are relaxed, centered and focused it
is easy for you to take action and turn inspired
ideas into realities. Very few others have this
gift as strongly as you: You have the tools and
spirit. You know how to use them. Now take
.action and bring the best out of your heart and
soul. It's your destiny to do this.

S Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Don't fret over recent struggles. This is just
life's ebb and flow. The secret is to go all out
when the energy is flowing and hold back a lit-
tle when it is slowing. This keeps your timing


sharp and maximizes the use of your spirit
without wasting it. Let this formula work for
you and you will continue to excel.

Libra-Sept. 23-Aug. 22
You always feel like there is so much to do and
so little time. The key is to figure out the value
of all these things and focus on the most valu-
able ones first. Then take care of the lesser
things. Success breeds success. When you are
on a natural high and psyched up in life you
are capable of great happenings. Go for it.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your desire for a new and better life is begin-
ning to show positive results. You are a great
humanitarian; You want everyone else to be
happy as well. Your path is one of respect,
love, honor and dignity. It justifies your life
when you see someone else get the message
about the true meaning of life. Teach us. We
are here to listen and learn.

SSagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your priorities remain clear. You continue to have
a strong sense of the most important areas of life
that need to be tended to. Where does all this
insight come from? From your open heart and
instincts of course. You are a beacon in the
wilderness and a living example of how to live
and do right by yourself as well as others.

Staying on a focused path
has brought you many new
adventures in the past year. It
has little to do with luck It
has everything to do with
your willingness to work hard
and do right by others. You
have an edge in the game of
life because of your personal
courage. Get ready. There are
more adventures coming in
the New Year ahead.
Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18-
The moon in Aquarius gives
you an emotional edge. It
gives extra motivation to take
care of extra responsibilities
that have been piling up.
Your strong conscience and
sense of right is always the,
guiding you in all areas of life.
If others would listen to these
divine gifts and act on them
the world would be better.
Thanks for who you are.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
You remain divinely connect-
ed and blessed. You are so
loved by spirit. Your skills in
handling life's challenges
continue to amaze your
friends and co-workers.
Your strong, gracious heart
is the main reason you are


able to get so, many things
done. You deserve the
sweetest rewards. What a
great life.

White Doves open

warehouse to help needy


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The White Doves Holiday
Project honored and enter-
tained volunteers,, families,
and sponsors during the pro-
ject's annual grand opening
event.
The festivities, held Nov. 28
at the Martin County Fair-
grounds, marked the official
opening of the White Doves
"warehouse," where food and
toys are gathered to serve
more than a thousand fami-


lies.
This year, the festivities
featured the traditional
appearance by the Warfield
Elementary Chorus as well as
a special performance by
Florida Arts and Dance, a
new affiliated agency of Unit-
ed Way of Martin County.
Florida Arts & Dance,
under the direction of
Genevieve Lagratta, per-
formed selections from "The
Nutcracker Suite" as well as
Irish step dance and jazz
ensembles. The Warfield Ele-


mentary Chorus, led by
Elliott Harris, sang holiday
songs.
Then, Santa Claus arrived
in an antique fire engine
thanks to Martin County
Fire-Rescue.
"White Doves relies on so
many groups and individu-
als," said project coordinator
Anne Lalley. "Everyone can
find a role in some facet of
the project, and the grand
opening is just one way we
can show the public how
much is involved."

Scene
From page BI


It may look as though
performers just stepped
into costumes and came on
stage, but it was nothing
like that. Some of the
scenes, like the food fight,
were rehearsed literally
hundreds of times, to make
sure that everyone moved
through the scene without
bumping into each othei.
The casting of two men as
the stepsisters was a real-
audience pleaser, and the
two actors, Shane Blanford
and Travis Easton, brought
hunior to the show as a
counterbalance to the
romance and sweetness.
Jim Trainer, as the King,
also brought humor to the
show as he struggled to
please his wife without
having to spend a lot of
money giving a ball,
The audience howled as
he tired to get into trousers
that were too tight, and
admiration is due any
performer who will appear
on stage in underwear.
The costumes, which
were created by another
professional, Carlos Toro,
were full of color and life,
and the ball gowns, espe-
cially for Sharon Owens as
the Fairy Godmother, Sandi
Hellstrom as the Queen. and
Josie Murray as Cinderella,
were stunning.
After the show, the little
girls in the audience all
wanted to meet Cinderella,
and she mingled with the
crowd, thrilling several
young ladies.


When I left the theater on
opening night, I was thrilled
for the cast and crew that
the hard work was reward-
ed.
However, they still had
five more performances,
including two shows on
Saturday. I have no idea
where they find the strength
to do it, and they have my
admiration and respect.
I am very grateful to
Shiloh's board of directors
for allowing me to follow
the production, and to the
cast and crew, who made
me feel so much a part of it.
Special thanks to Jeanette
Mazzella, who answered my
questions patiently and
made me feel as though I,
too, were part of the magic.

Carol
From page B1


members need to go back
and read the story out loud.
When you go back to Dick-
ens, when the ghost of
Christmas past visits
Scrooge, you see how quick-
ly he begins weeping and is
moved. The ghost of Christ-
mas present tells him what
he's missing out on. He
realizes that he has a tril-
lion more opportunities to
make a difference, and that
gives him a fire in his belly
that propels him through
the story."
While the show has musi-
cal numbers and Christmas
carols, Mr. Kamprath says
that it is not a musical in
the usual sense. The show is
adaptation done by the late
Charles Jones, -who served
as executive director of the
Omaha Playhouse.
"He created a version that
many consider to have the
look and feel of a favorite
Christmas card from when
you were a kid, full of deep
color and richness," Mr.
Kamprath said. "That's the
version we produce, and by
golly, it's been effective.
I've been doing the east
coast tour for 21 years and
we go to the same venues,


year after year."
Occasionally, the compa-
ny performs before an
audience consisting entire-
ly of children.
"It's never the hardest
thing to get a laugh," Mr.
Kamprath said. "I love that,
but when you can get 1,80'0
people 1,800 children -
at a touching moment, to
be riveted in silence ... that
means a lot to me, and that
happens. It may be their
first live theater. It is very
special for kids."

Three C's help when grieving during holidays


The holidays can be
especially difficult for
people who have lost
loved ones.
Any time that celebrates
family can be hard, as those
who remain are often keenly
aware of the family member
who isn't there anymore.
Watching other families
together, people who are
still grieving often are
reminded of their loss and
even people who have
moved past the stage of
immediate grief may feel
sad during holiday times.
Jacki Nardone, director of
the Harbors Community
Grief Support Center at
Treasure Coast Hospice,
counsels clients who are
dealing with grief at holi-
day-time to think of the
three "C's:" choose, commu-
nicate and compromise.
"People should make a
conscious choice prior to
the holidays about which
activities they will partici-
pate in and which they
won't," she said. "They
should decide if they want
to maintain traditions or
start something new.
"They should plan for
how they want to mark their
loss and not avoid it. They
should think about how
they want to honor that
person. Perhaps it will be by
telling stories, lighting
candles, having a new ritual
or special ornament or
having a moment of silence.
There are many ways to
remember someone and
bring a positive focus to
grief.
"It's also important for
people to communicate
their choices to others," she
said. "That's especially true
with families. Each person's
way of handling grief is


different. If you want to talk
about the loved one, let
people know. They may not
realize that that is what you
want to do.
"Compromise is impor-
tant at this time, as well,"
she said. "If a holiday dinner
is too painful for a family
member, but others want to
have it, make sure each
point of view is taken into
account. If someone doesn't
want to decorate the tree,
but others do, let them. If
someone can't attend at all,
ask, 'I understand you can't
be there, but what can we
do to help you and make
you a part of the holiday?'
You want to decide how you
can honor your loved one as
a family."
Dealing with grief at
holiday time is complicated
when there are children
involved.
"Kids do need routine
and stability," said Ms.
Nardone. "Perhaps some-
one else can step in and
assist a bit, Maybe an aunt
can help and take some of
the burden off mom or dad.
"Again, it's important to
realize limitations and
communicate what you can
and cannot do. Then bring
someone in to help and try
to be with people who are
supportive and comfort-
ing."
While grieving is a
difficult process, Ms.
Nardone believes it can
bring families together.
"Talk to your children
about changes in life, about
life's normal struggles," she
said. "We change schools;
we move ... because
grandpa died, grandma
can't do Christmas dinner
this year, but we'll do it at
Aunt Sally's ... these are life


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
lessons about transition
and change.
"It's also important to
remember that kids need to
grieve and that everyone
does it differently. Everyone
must honor each person's
way of grieving, and of the
feelings of sadness, loneli-
ness, frustration and anger.
However, if the person
becomes self-destructive or
becomes depressed, it is
time to seek professional
help. That's a sign of
strength, not weakness."
The Harbors Center
provides individual and
support groups for adults
and children throughout
the year to help people


cope with grief. The Har-
bors serves the people of
Stuart, Port St. Lucie, Fort
Pierce and Okeechobee.
The support groups are free
and open to anyone who
has suffered loss from any
type of death, including
accidents and suicide.
During the holiday
season, additional "Coping
with the Holidays" work-
shops are held and the
public can find out about
them by calling (772) 403-
4530 or (800) 299-4677.
There is no way to short-
circuit the grieving process
and no right way to grieve.
Talking to people who have
experienced loss is often a
good way to make sense of
your own feelings, and to
understand that what you
are feeling is entirely
normal.
You don't have to grieve
alone, or in silence. There is
help out there.

an Owls program that has
won just five games over
the past two seasons.
"I was completely
speechless," Churchwell
said of signing with the
school. ."It felt like a
dream, like it wasn't hap-
pening."
"It seemed so surreal,"
she said.
The same could be said
for Churchwell's play over
the past four seasons for
Sebastian River. The 17-
year-old was a key factor
in continuing the Sharks'
seven-year district title
run, helping lead Sebast-
ian to the crown each year
she presided over the
court.
Churchwell finished her
high school career with
flair, breaking the single-
season school record for
kills with 336, as well as
blocks with 148. The mid-
dle hitter also set the career
record for kills with 726.
"I couldn't believe it,"
Churchwell said. "I could-
n't believe I broke Jaime
Guy's record for kills in a
season and a career."
Ultimately, Sebastian's
season was ended with a
loss to West Boca Raton in
the regional playoffs. Iron-
ically enough, so was Mar-
tin County's along with
Albright's.
Despite Albright's 31
assists, the Tigers fell to
West Boca. in four games,
ending -Martin County's
season in the Region 4-5A
semifinals. Even though

ended prematurely,
Albright was pleased with
the team's performance
overall.
S"I couldn't ask for more,"
'Albright said. "It was the
Sbestsenior year I could've
asked for."
Like .' Churchwell,
Albright experienced the
thrill of capping off her
playing days with a district
:crown. It was the school's
:first since 2004 when
"Albright was a freshman.
"This meant more than
the last time," Albright
said. "Freshman year, I
didn't play that much."
"We worked for it,"
Albright said. "It was a
great sense of accomplish-
ment."
Unlike her first season,
where Albright saw limited
action, the Stuart resident
led the way to the title with
unparalleled play at the
setter position. Albright
surpassed her own single-
season school record of
731 assists with 60 more in
2007, while setting the
career mark for Martin
County with 2,077.
"She's an excellent ath-
lete," Martin County head
coach Marty Bielicki. "She
is definitely a leader on
and off the court.
"I'm definitely going to
miss her. I didn't have to
worry about the setter


t :l C ( '; ;'


position for the last few
years."
Albright had no anxious
moments either when it
came to choosing a school
to compete at the next
level. She met Owls' coach
Valerie Jones at a volleyball
camp at the University of
Tampa and the duo came'
away with a mutual admi-
ration.
"The coach was so
impressed with her,"
Bielicki said. "She was
extremely impressed with
how she led the team."
Albright came away with
a positive experience as
well.
"Knowing her and seeing
her coach from camp, I
really respected her as a
coach," Albright said. "My
coach (Bielicki) had time to
talk with her and he liked
her. His opinion matters a
lot.
"I went up to visit back in
April and I fell in love with
the campus. I fell in love
with the girls."
Churchwell first gar-
nered the interest -of the
Kennesaw State coaching
staff at the Big South Quali-
fier in Atlanta, which led to
another look at the Disney
Classic. The school con-
tacted Churchwell the first
day allowed by NCAA regu-
lations, and she quickly
seized the opportunity,


"They ae the first one
that really offered mie any-
thing," Churchwell said.
"They got excited about me.
"They might not be the
best team out there, but
they believed in me."
While both Albright and
Churchwell are under-
standably excited about
the collegiate experience,
they are also happy to not
have to go through it
alone. While the duo rarely
interacted while on the
court, they got to know
each other through their
fathers who occasionally
work together on the race-
car circuit.
Despite the rivalry that
exists between the two
schools Martin County


eliminated Sebastian River
in the playoffs two seasons
in a row the girls
became friends albeit
when they were not com-
peting against each other.
"Volleyball for me, I have
modes that I switch in and
out," Churchwell said. "If
you're my friend off the
court, you're not my friend
on the court.
"She (Albright) under-
stands that. She's the same
way."
Now that friendship will
extend to the playing
arena.
"It's going to be fun,"
Churchwell said. "I like
playing on the same team.
She's a great person to be
around."
