County had highs


and lows in 2007


Mitch Kloorfaln/chief photographer
Judge William Roby swore in Rep. Tim Mahoney during a special ceremony in down-
town Stuart Sunday, Feb. 11, The newly-elected Democrat played a role in many of the
top stories affecting Martin County this year.


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
The top stories of 2007 for
Martin County encom-
passed a broad variety of
issues, ranging from good
news about the county's
schools to the serious prob-
lems of water quality, a per-
sistent drought and a num-
ber ofongoing growth issues,
some resolved, some not.

County's students
rank high

The best news by far for
area educators was that all
but one of Martin County
public schools received an
'A" for the 2006-2007 aca-
demic year from the Florida
Department of Education.
The only one receiving a
"B," J.D. Parker School of
Science, Math and Technol-
ogy, was also the only
school in the state with 100
percent of its students scor-
ing at or above PCAT profi-
ciency level,
County schools were
ranked among the top Insti-
tutions in the state, accord-
ing to ratings by the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test.
District School Superin-
tendent Sara Wilcox said, at
the time, that "there Is a lot
of celebrating occurring
with tears of happiness and
joy because It represents
such a high level of achieve-


ment."
In the various waves of
FCAT scores released from
the state throughout the
year, Martin County stu-
dents regularly scored well
above the state average.
Ninth-graders ranked the
best in the state for reading
proficiency, the seventh-
graders tied for first place in
math and the fourth- and
eighth-grade students were
ranked fifth in the entire
state. The purpose of the
PCAT is to measure how stu-
dents in grades three to 10
measure up against the
Sunshine State Standards.

Where's the water?
South Florida's ongoing
drought continued to affect
Martin County residents
through most of 2007. The
problem actually began
with below-average rainfall
during the rainy season of
2006, which prompted the
South Florida Water Man-
agement District to partially
activate its emergency oper-
ations center that Novem-
ber.
Record low water levels
for Lake Okeechobee, which
serves as a backup water
supply for the region's mil-
lions of residents, forced the
SFWMD to Issue tighter
water restrictions for Martin
County and the rest of

Southern end of Green River Parkway is approved


Officials hope to
ease congestion
on U.S. 1
BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
MARTIN COUNTY By
next summer, the long wait-,
ed southern extension for
the Green River Parkway
could be under construc-
tion.
The Martin County Com-
mission voted 3-2 on Dec.
18, with commissioners
Sarah Heard and Susan Val-
liere dissenting, to approve
a new route for the $13.4


million project, which has
been part of the country's
comprehensive plan since
1985,
County engineers were
forced to come up with a
new route after the Florida
Communities Trust rejected
the roadway's original path,
which would have sliced
through environmentally
sensitive lands set aside by
the city of Stuart with funds
from the agency.
SThe commissioners back-
ing the project hope
motorists will use the pro-
posed route when it's com-
pleted in 2009 and relieve
congestion on U.S. 1 north


Council on Aging

receives $2.5 million

Funds dedicated to new $15 million
senior center


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
MARTIN COUNTY The
Council on Aging of Martin
County received an early
Christmas present when
the Frances Langford Foun-
dation made a $2.5 million
donation in early Decem-
ber to the planned Charles
and Rae Kane Senior Cen-
ter.
The proposed 33,000-
square-foot center will pro-
vide a broad variety of
social, wellness, medical,
educational and cultural
programs to all area senior
citizens 60 or over. The
state-of-the-art facility will
be located on Salerno Road
between U.S. 1 and Kanner
Highway and is being
designed as a special needs
hurricane shelter for sen-
iors, their caregivers and
even their pets.
The center's largest enter-


tainment space will be
named the Frances Lang-
ford Theater and Auditori-
um in honor of the founda-
tion's generous gift, said
Barbara Kauffman, the
president of the Council on
Aging of Martin County.
"We want this gift to cele-
brate her life, her talents
and giving spirit," she said.
"What better way than to
name the new center's
entertainment space in her
honor?"
Ms. Kauffman added that
she had the pleasure of vis-
iting with Ms. Langford in
her home before she died in
2005. She emphasized that
the singer and movie star
loved Jensen Beach and
Hutchinson Island, where
she settled after entertain-
ing the troops during World
War II with Bob Hope.
"She was a very down-to-

of the Roosevelt Bridge.
Commissioner Heard has
frequently called for a
moratorium on develop-
ment north of the bridge
due to the heavy traffic.
Commissioner Doug
Smith, in whose district the
roadway will be built,
admitted that it was a diffi-
cult decision to back the
project in spite of local
opposition, but said the
parkway will play a crucial
role in local traffic flow.
"The Green River Park-
way is one of those roads
that's absolutely imperative
to be part of our network,"
he said. "One of the primary


purposes of the parkway is
for residents to be able to
move north and south with-
out having to go onto U.S,
1."
Windemere Drive will
also be extended to inter-
sect with the parkway, a fact
that Commissioner Smith
said will please the resi-
dents of the Windemere
subdivision, who currently
only have a northbound
exit onto U.S. 1 and must
make a U-turn to head
south.
"What Windemere has
wanted was to take Winde-
mere Drive and take it over
to Green Parkway and have


a back way out," he said.
"The DOT has said if we
extend Windemere, they
will allow for a traffic light at
Windemere and U.S. 1,
which is a huge safety
issue."
The new route of the
parkway, now reduced to
just two lanes from the orig-
inal proposal, has brought it
much closer to some Jensen
Beach neighborhoods.
Once completed, it will pass
within 60 feet of some of the
area's homes, a fact that

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
A Port Salerno family left
homeless when fire destroyed
their mobile home is receiv-
ing assistance from The
American Red Cross Martin
County.
The Red Cross is providing
temporary shelter and basic
living essentials to the six
adults who are now homeless
and in need of help.
"Responding to a home
destroyed by a fire during the
holiday season is especially
tragic," said Rob Shelt, direc-
tor of disaster services. "This
time of year, we typically see a
spike in the number of house
fires. Fires kill 'more Ameri-
cans each year than all natu-
ral disasters combined, and
the Red Cross urges families
to develop a fire escape plan
and to take steps toward fire
prevention and safety. Pre-
paredness is important for all
families."
To prevent heating related
fires, the Red Cross recom-
mends keeping all potential
fuel sources, including news-
papers, matches, bedding


and clothing, at least three
feet away from heat sources
such as a space heaters, fire-
places and wood stoves.
Portable heaters and fire-
places should never be left
unattended. Read and follow
the manufacturer's instruc-
tions on how, when and
where to safely use heating
equipment, such as space
heaters and wood stoves.
"Every year in Martin
County, home fires are the
single most common disaster
threat. The good news is that
preparing for a home fire
doesn't require a lot of expen-
sive equipment or training,"
said Mr. Shelt.
In addition to functioning
smoke alarms, one of the eas-
iest ways to prepare is to
develop and practice a home
fire escape plan so that every
family member, including
young children and the elder-
ly, can escape quickly and
safely.
Fire escape plans include at
least two exit routes for every
room in the home, and a con-
venient meeting place at a
safe distance from the fire.
Escape ladders should be
used and stored near win-
'dows in floors above ground
level, and all family members
should know hoyw to locate
and use the ladders safely.
Families should practice their
escape plan at least twice a
year.

"I can't believe that this
room isn't full of people...
they are going to be so
angry," she said, referring to
the neighboring residents.
Two representatives of an
opposition group, the
Haney Creek Greenway
Group, did express their
concerns to commissioners.
The president of the group,
Keith Kopp,. said that com-
missioners should try and
improve more established
routes such as Savannah
Road or Goldenrod. Lisa
Berry-Klausmeyer, another
member, said she'd collect-
ed thousands of signatures
of area residents opposed to
the project.
"I am representing a part
of the community that has a
different vision for part of
the land," she said. "We
have 3,476 -signatures of
people who want to pre-
serve this land and not have
a road going through and
destroying it."
Ms. Berry-Klausmeyer
told commissioners that the
original idea behind the
Green River Parkway was to
have its own bridge over the
St. Lucie River, and without
that feature, the roadway
would do little good.
"It now is going to end at
Baker Road, and people are
going to have to cross the
(Roosevelt) bridge anyway,"
she added.
In expressing her opposi-
tion, Commissioner Valliere
said the road won't really
help and will only serve to
cause bottlenecks at the
northern base of the Roo-
sevelt Bridge. She expressed
concern upon hearing from
county engineer Don Don-
aldson that the new road
itself would reach its capaci-
ty in 2013, just four years
after its projected comple-
tion.
Several northern county
residents spoke out in favor
of the roadway, however,,
citing the need to strike a
balance between environ-
mental concerns and alter-
nate routes. Area 'resident


Frank Walker Jr. told com-
missioners their choices
were limited for improving
traffic in the area, but he
preferred the parkway to
widening U.S. 1 to eight
lanes.
"One option is to build the
Green River Parkway," he
said. "The other is to con-
nect all the parking lots
(along U.S. 1); other than
that, all you're going to do is
make it to where we're hav-
ing to drive out on a bigger
road."
Tammy Simoneau, of the
Economic Development
Council of Martin County,
said the concerns over the
endangered scrub jays liv-
ing in the area should take a
backseat to issues of traffic
and safety.
"I live in the Pines, so this
is truly in my backyard," she
said. "I care about the birds
and I don't want them to die,
but with the traffic conges-
tion that we have, I don't
want anybody dying in an
ambulance on U.S. 1 due to
total gridlock."
Commissioner Lee
Weberman, who's been
backing the project since
1988, said denying the road
would require amending the
county's comprehensive
plan, which most commis-
sioners and county resident
are loath to do.
Mr. Donaldsonr reminded
the commission that the
county would lose $5.7 mil-
lion in state money allocat-
ed for the project if the
funds were not spent on the
1.8-mile extension by June
30, 2009
In her plea for commis-
sioners to approve the park-
way extension, Ms.
Simoneau said it was their
duty to plan for the county's
future growth.
"I might remind you we've
already collected over $1.2
million in impact fees for
this," she said. "We need to
change our mentality that if
we don't build it, they won't
come. It just isn't applica-
ble."

"The new theater will be the
best reflection of her legacy
to America and Martin
County."
Ms. Langford's giving con-
tinues to live on through her
estate, which is managed by
Foundation trustee Evans
Crary Jr. A retired attorney,
Mr. Crary said that after
meeting with Ms. Kauffman
and going over the Council
on Aging's plans, he knew
the new senior center
would be a great benefit to
the area's elderly popula-
tion.
"I felt it was a very out-
standing and worthwhile
thing for the community,"


he said. "Also, the fact that it
was going to be a 200-per-
son hurricane shelter and a
shelter for pets as well."
Mr. Crary explained that
he'd represented the singer
for almost 40 years, and his
father had represented her
since she first came to Mar-
tin County in 19148. Both he
and Ms. Kauffman referred
the entertainer's big heart
and her frequent donations,
particularly the land for the
Frances Langford Park in
Jensen Beach.
"She was a supporter of the
community here in many,
many ways," he said. "She
contributed to many of the
local organizations like the


Red Cross and the United
Way, and she donated her
Hutchinson Island home to
the Florida Oceanographic
Society."
In addition to supporting
the new senior center, the
Frances Langford Founda-
tion has made significant
donations to Martin Memori-
al Health Systems ($5 million
for the heart center opened
in 2006), the Martin County
Historical Society ($3 million
for the new Elliott Museum)
and other area institutions.
Ms. Kauffman said that
Council On Aging selected
the Salerno Road site after
carefully studying the area's
demographics. She empha-


sized that the Charles and
Rae Kane Senior Center will
be more convenient for the
senior citizens of southwest
Martin County.
"It's easier for folks in
Indiantown to enjoy this,
more centrally located to
Hobe Sound and only 10
minutes from downtown Stu-
art."
She added that ground-
breaking is scheduled for late
summer of 2008; with con-
struction completed by the
end of 2009.

Martin detectives take
a bite out of cocaine dealers
The special investigations division of the Martin
County Sheriff's Office wrapped a five-month investi-
gation with the arrests of 44 people charged with sell-
ing crack cocaine throughout the county.
The crackdown covered the entire county, with sus-
pects arrested in Jensen Beach, Stuart, Golden Gate,
Port Salerno, Hobe Sound, Palm City and Indiantown.
According to a sheriff's office press release, the
street dealers were targeted after detectives broke up
a cocaine smuggling operation earlier this year. Thir-
ty five of those arrested are adult males, and nine
were juvenile males. Twenty six of them were charged
with dealing cocaine within 1,000 feet of a church,
school, daycare or county park, which is a first-degree
felony and doubles the bond amount, the report
states.
The suspects were accused of dealing two to four
rocks per deal, and if found guilty, could face from
one to 30 years in jail.

Storm water drainage fee still a possibility
Martin County will pay $200,000 to do a feasibility
study on the implementation of a proposed storm
water drainage fee for the unincorporated portions of
the county to augment funding for the Office ofWater
Quality.
Commissioners voted 4-1 on Dec. 18 to approve
funding the study, with Commissioner Lee Weberman
dissenting, saying it would like a cost shift to taxpay-
ers to replace money lost from property tax reform.
The commission briefly discussed the matter on Dec.
4 but had tabled the matter after having to shift
money from the general fund to finish up a county
Sstorm-water project.
Currently storm drainage projects are funded by a
tax on the property's value. The proposed fee would
be based on how much of the particular piece of
property is covered with pavement and buildings.
County Water Quality Chief Gary Roderick said he
could obtain up to $12 million in grant money if the
new fee were implemented. Commissioner Doug
Smith said the filtering done by storm water drainage
was vital to the health of the Indian River Lagoon and
the St. Lucie River.

Air show commits to 2008,
with or without the airport's subsidy
The Visiting Nurse Association Air Show will defi-
nitely take place next November, even if its shy the
$40,000 contribution pitched in by Witham Field in
recent years.
The VNA Air Show spokesperson Kimberly Jones
said show directors gave the green light for the 2008
show, although Executive Director Donald Crow had
previously said the show might not go on without the
support. She added that officials would evaluate the
results after the 2008 show to determine the feasibili-
ty without the airport's help. The much larger Air &
Sea Show in Fort Lauderdale has already cancelled its
2008 show for the lack of a sponsor. Witham Field

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


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

Virtually every car dealer
S in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells a
"dealer fee'doc lee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500
to nearly $1.000 This extra


charge is programmed into
your computer It has been made illegal in
many states including California. out is still
legal in Florida The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it Is not
noticed by your customers This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer lee ($4951
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


Now, here Is the good news. After allminat.
Ing the dealer lee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee. but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the.
door price with no 'surprises' And the word
spread My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly Sure. I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car. but I was selling a lot
more cars I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated 1he
dealer fee, but because I was


able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their newr
or used car You can do the
same
Why am I writing this letter?
I m not going to tell you that
I think of myself as te new
'sheriff' that has come to
'clean up South Florida In
fact I am well aware that this


letter is to some extent. ielf-
serving Many people will read this lneer and
learn wiy they should r'u a car from me
and not you And. I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either gel angry and
Ignore it or not hav the courage to follow my
lead But maybe tou will be the e)ceptCirn If
you have any Interest In following my load
call me anytime I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls I would

Watch budget cuts
During the upcoming budget cuts in Martin County, not
one librarian, lifeguard, parks worker, or paramedic should
be laid off. According to public records, over 80 supervisors
in Martin County make more than $100,0001 per year. These
bureaucrats need to go in order for services to continue. I
was pleased that the Teamsters were voted in in order to
protect workers who actually work for the public. Martin
County needs a workforce that actually serves the public
efficiently, we do not need more supervisors that drive
around in county trucks wasting gas or sitting in their
offices twiddling their thumbs wasting tax dollars.

Vick is sick

I sure hope that the Michael Vick ranter was just a feeble
joke aimed at agitating the troops.
Anyone who has taken psychology 101 has learned that
most psychopaths abused animals on their way to antiso-
cial behavior. Fortunately, 98 percent of Americans con-
demned Mr. Vicks vile dog fighting and recognized that
those who inflict pain on vulnerable animals or others that
can't defend themselves are sick. There is often a strong link
between dog fighting and drugs and other illegal activities.

Drivers, please slow down
It was on Jan. 30, 1989 that our lives were changed forever.
My niece was killed by someone going over 80 mph on
Dairy Road, in Titusville.
She was only 15 years old and she is missed each and
.every day. I don't know why the driver was in such a hurry.
She is gone and he spent time in jail. I don't believe he got
up that day and thought if he broke the law and drove too
fast that it would end the life of a young girl, but still, it did.
I have a teenager and I know his friends speed without a
thought. Parents, take time to think when you are going
over the speed limit. You could be teaching a bad habit that
could take the life of your child or someone elses.

Telephone directory listings
Last week, a person complained about having to pay to
not be listed in the phone directory. I have some advice for
you and other readers. What the phone company didn't tell
you is that you can choose to be listed under whatever
name you want. You do not have to be listed under your
billing name.
I have friends who don't want their names listed and were
Upset by the non-listing charge. So instead, they are listed,
but chose silly, ridiculous, made-up names.
The best part of it is that they can instantaneously spot
junk mail and marketing calls.
One friend chose a name that is virtually impossible to
pronounce. The moment they pick up the phone and hear
someone trying to pronounce the ridiculous name, they
laugh and hang-up.
Subjects or citizens?

I have long been aware of my ignorance regarding Ameri-
can history between 1880 and 1940. I recently started
studying the subject and am very confused.
After the Spanish American War, we acquired Puerto Rico
and the Philippines as territories or insular possessions.
These are referred to as "The United States of America."
Our Constitution was written for "The united States of
America." (Lower case "u")
All possessions are legally designated by a two capital-let-
ter designator; PR.and PI in the above cases. The residents
are "subjects" rather than "citizens," possessing no Consti-
tutional rights.
The question I have is when we use the designator FL
rather than the abbreviation Fla. Are we giving the federal
government tacit approval to treat us as subjects rather
than as citizens?
If so, then this is a huge rant.
Editor's note: According to Wikipedia, the Philippines were
granted independence from the United States on July 4,1945.
Puerto Rico remains a "United States commonwealth, an
unincorporated, organized territory with a political status
that 'provides for self-government in respect of internal
affairs and administration subject to relevant portions of the
constitution and laws of the United States."'

Illegal aliens have it easy
You want free health care, public, schooling, in-state
tuition, welfare, and driver licenses for illegal aliens'all in
hope of votes and what you see as loyal minions.
Did it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you
will all be voted out?
Wake up. They already have their own people ready to
step in.
I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to
vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave sol-
dier's votes. At least some felons are legal citizens.
What part of illegal is so hard to understand?


fi('I


Crossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I
consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and hold-
ing a license is a privilege: I know a few people that have
been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of
identity theft and giving out false social security numbers?
Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My
daughter's could not cross lines to attend public schools, yet
illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children
could not travel to an out of state school and expect to get
in-state tuition, yet we give them to illegal aliens not to
mention every form of public aid and top priority for schol-
arships.
There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now, the
Mexican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be
patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland; yet, we
have to fight to be patriotic in our own country.
Enough is enough, I'd move my family to Mexico when it
finally empties out, but guess what, you can never be come
a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected
by the military.

Water restrictions are ridiculous
I can water for four hours one day a week within a given
time limit, plus new planting s can be watered at night, and
if I have less than five acres, etc., it includes details of the
equipment used for stress relief. In the middle of all this, it
was noted that there is no limits at all on car washing, boat
washing, or pressure washing. I think I'm going to have a
very, very clean car that I'm going to wash all over my very,
very green lawn.

Does anyone have the number
for Homeland Security?

I tried to get a hold of homeland security but couldn't find
it, so I called 911. They didn't have it either. What kind of
Sheriffs department doesn't have the number for Homeland
Security so I can report illegal immigrants?
Editor's note: The Homeland Security contact for Florida is
Thomas]. Mclnerney, Homeland Security Advisor, (772) 410-
8300.

Medical techs getting bad rap

This is in regard to the rant about medical technicians
needing more training. The person that said that must not
know what it feels like to be a medical assistant or any kind
of technician in the medical field. I am a nursing assistant,
and I lift patients bigger than me. And I have a stethoscope
around my neck, and I know which end to use on the
patients chest. Whoever wrote that rant should attend a
medical assistant class. I have worked with patients that
have Alzheimer's, cancer, and AIDS. If you have any ques-
tions about what it feels like to be a technician, go to an
ACLF, nursing home, or an agency and go out with the nurs-
es. This person does not know how it feels. I advise that per-
son to shut up, because we are not the cause of the out-
breaks in the hospitals. The doctors and the people who do
not sterilize the equipment cause the outbreaks. The person
should watch what they are saying because you never know
who will be washing your behind when you are old.

Too much strain on paramedics
After a recent accident I had to be transported to a hospi-
tal. I realized that there is a lot of strain on the paramedics
when they, are lifting people, especially someone bigger
-than me. There has to be some kind of device that could
help these men out. If someone has any ideas, please let
someone know.

Vote for a women, if she's most qualified
This is in response to the 87-year-old woman who believes
that women should vote for a woman president.


First, I want to thank you for all that your generation has
done for our great country; however, when deciding who to
vote for this coming election year, I hope that you would
change your position and encourage women to vote for the
most qualified candidate and consider all the issues. If that
happens to be a woman, then all the better.

Vote on policy, not on gender
Dear Madam 87-year-old. You are very much entitled to
voice your opinion. You've seen many positive changes in
women's rights. However, I must strongly disagree with your
premise to vote for gender.
I thought the.American way to choose a candidate was
because of policies, not gender, race or religion. Personally,
if Condolezza Rice were running for president, she'd get my
vote because she, in my opinion, is a fair-minded, sagacious
woman worthy of leading this country. I can't say the same
about Mrs. Clinton.
Vote policy; not gender.

Don't vote using shallow consideration
Women and men should only vote for the person who will
best fulfill the duties of the president of the United States.
One shouldn't vote for someone based on gender, religion,
race, charisma or any other shallow consideration.
Nevertheless, honor, intelligence (and) valor, are impor-
tant. I do not believe that someone can lack personal moral-
ity and have political integrity. That goes for the president of
the United States as well as for his or her spouse, who will
also occupy the White House.
I am so disappointed in the offerings presented. I am now
hoping for a third party and will vote for a third-party candi-
date if that person is intelligent, moral, and respectable.
If you want a woman, how about we draft (Rep. Nancy)
Pelosi? Did you see that she has the courage to stand up to
the oil companies?I am impressed... and a little worried for
her.

To avoid slow drivers, stay in right lane
In response to all the "left-laners:" I say, "Stay over there
and out of my lane, the right.lane."
That keeps the right lane open for me to cruise through
without waiting for the slow ones to move out of the way. No
problems.

Giving children drugs is not a solution
I have been noticing a growing number of people con-
versing in public about their children having been diag-
nosed with Attention Deficit HyperactivityDisorder.
Some even sound proud of it as if they are relieved to
discover they are not responsible for their own children. I
would be outraged to have my child labeled as having a
mental disorder. I would fight tooth-and-nail to prevent
my child from being administered Schedule II narcotics.
Ritalin is like cocaine.
There are no objective medical tests to diagnose ADHD,
according to the National Institutes of Health. The diag-
nosis is purely subjective. In other words, someone's
opinion based on just how much like a kid does the kid
act? I'm sorry if you can't stand the motion and randomi-
ty of childhood when you aren't the child. Look at it and
understand it for what it is childhood.
Do you have to have children currently 'to speak ,out
against this outrage? You need only to look at the evening
news for the answer. The TV spews out examples of social
disorder: drug addicts, murders, shootouts with police,
child abductions, burglaries, hold ups, shoplifting rings,
ad absurdum.
Do you think these were all committed by normally
rational people who on the day of the crime decided to

go to the dark side or were suddenly provoked by the
devil? I think not.
Children are the future of mankind. Each and every one
of us is responsible to provide a moral, ethical and sur-
vivable future for our species. Can a society become so
degraded as to drug its children so they will sit still?
Please. Do something.
Editor's note: While methylphenidate, more commonly
known as Ritalin, works in the same way as cocaine, stimu-
lating the production of dopamine, researchers have con-
cluded that it is not as addictive.
An article on the Archives of General Psychiatry Web site,
cites the results of a study led by psychiatrist Nora Volkow,
head of the research team and of Brookhaven's Medical
Department: "The slow-acting effect we've seen ... gives us
confidence that the low oral doses given to children with
ADHD cannot cause the quick and intense feeling of reward
that is necessary to reinforce the behavior of taking the drug."

Those attacking homosexuals, fail to see same
problem among heterosexuals

Well, you've heard one side of the story; here's is the other.
So many wish to show that homosexuals are promiscuous.
I am here to give you the other side.
While there may be bath houses in San Francisco and used
to be in New York, there are many, many more brothels,
cathouses, escort services, madam's, gentlemen's clubs,
men's clubs, strip clubs and sex theaters throughout the
entire country.
These are but a few, along with prostitution and private
services, massage parlors, beauty parlors and academies.
In Texas, there is the famous Chicken (Ranch) and the
CatHouse, and (there are) several massage parlors in Con-
necticut. There are massage parlors, beauty academies
(and) brothels throughout the country from New Hamp-
shire to California, including Florida.
I've known many heterosexuals who have had more than
1,000 notches on their belts.
I know of one in particular who brags about his 20 or more
kids, and yet they are not from the same woman.
To cast hatred, one always looks at the evils of another and
never the good.
While there are many non-monogamous homosexuals,
there are just as many if not more non-monogamous,
promiscuous heterosexuals.
So, before you cast a stone, be sure you do not live in a
glass house.
Also, there are many homosexual relationships (where)
partners have been together for more than 25 years and
never strayed. So, the differences are very slim.
All people are alike, the only difference is their preference.
Next time, look at both sides of the coin before judging.

Forget about toys, what about lead on lips?

There's a lot of talk about lead in children's toys and I know
they are looking into it, but I also heard about lead being in
lipstick. I haven't heard a word about that or follow up on it
on who it might be.
Editor's note: Good Morning America
(www.abcnewsgo.com)did a report Oct. 12 about a study
conducted by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, where 20 of
the 33 lipsticks it had tested for lead came back positive. The
brands with the highest levels of the 33 were made by L'Oreal,


Cover Girl and Christian Dior
Oct. 13, The Seattle Times (seattletimes.nwsource.com)
reported that the Food and Drug Administration would be
looking into these claims. Currently, the FDA has no limit for
lead in lipstick.

Pelosi can't handle being new sheriff

Nancy Pelosi, I'm really upset with you. This was the Con-
gress that was supposed to come in and get a lot of stuff
done. All we've heard is a lot of rhetoric
Since you can't take care of the important things like get-
ting the troops paid, let's go back to basics and start with
some simple stuff. See if you can get the toy deal fixed com-
ing from China. Let's see if we can get safer toys for the little
kids to chew on.
You were supposed to be the new sheriff in town, and you
don't even make a good deputy.

A plea made to drivers to stop being in such a
rush

I haven't ranted here yet, but it's time now.
The speeding and the red-light and stop-sign running
drivers are out of control lately.
Hey, what's your hurry, you're already here. Unfortunately,
the county sheriff's department, when I called them, has
told me it is too expensive for them to set up speed traps
anymore.
Don't they at least get some of the income from tickets?
Mostly, I wish to plead with the aggressive or hurried driv-
ers: Please don't try to change the clock with your
speedometer. In reality, speeding and running red lights and
stop signs won't get you where you're going much sooner
than by obeying the lights and signs.
Really, and you won't waste gas and risk lives.

Romney worthy to be president

This is regarding "Not many worthy to be president."
We do have a fine candidate: Mitt Romney. He is the only
one who (has) his first and only wife, and they have five fine
sons. He was a good governor of Massachusetts and kept the
Olympics in the black.
He is also a fine Christian with no affairs in his back-
ground. I will definitely vote for him.

Never forget three historic events

As we enter the holiday season, we can be thankful that we
live in the best country on this Earth.
We have some problems, but still this is the best country.
I strongly believe that we need to keep three major events
that have occurred to this country in our minds at all times
as we enter this holiday season.
The Alamo and what is occurring right now with the ille-
gal immigrants and the problems that situation is causing.
Pearl Harbor and what is occurring with our automobile
industry. We have many Japanese-named auto assembly
plants in this country, but how many American auto assem-
bly plants are there in Japan? I expect there are very few, if
any. I cringe when I see Japanese named cars driven by our
military personnel, both active duty and retired, and our
police and fire personnel. I believe these individuals have
been defending our country or our communities but now
some have chosen to drive a Japanese named car when
Japan tried to destroy us at Pearl Harbor. I was in the mili-
tary for several years, and I have always driven American-
named cars and would never consider driving anything else.
The twin tower disaster needs to be remembered as we
have many enemies that are out to destroy our country and
our way of life.
I want to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy
NewYear.


Unlike World War II, basis for
newer wars seem vague

I hate it when U.S. involvement in Vietnam and the
Middle East is compared to World War II.
There is no correlation. Japan attacked Hawaii, and
Hitler was a madman from Germany intent on taking
over the world. The U.S. declared war against two coun-
tries to protect the U.S. and our European Allies.
There was a vague and inconsistent "preventing the
spread of communism" about Vietnam.
So, perhaps someone can tell me how North and South
Vietnam are doing now? Did we improve things for
someone? Who? What? How? I really do not know.
In Iraq, we destroyed terrorist training camps, captured
(Saddam) Hussein, and stopped the work on germ war-
fare the only WMD found.
So, what are we doing now?
SI do like it that there appear to be fewer terrorist
attacks, but I do not see how we can "stabilize a govern-
ment" in an area that has been characterized by hostile
desert tribes for centuries. Must we force them into the
21st century and democracy, because our way is the right
way?
It is a contradiction that we are fighting terrorists in the
Middle East when our own government says that thou-
sands of terrorists cross both our boarders illegally every
year. It would make sense that the U.S. government
assist local law enforcement in stopping the illegal inva-
sion thatis in violation of our immigration laws.
Why are we fighting terrorism in other countries and
leaving our borders open?

Another case against U.S.
founded as Christian nation

I'd like to comment to the two people who wrote different
articles referring to the U.S. Constitution and God.
The person who wrote that the U.S. Constitution refers to
"in the year of our lord ..." is incorrect in the assumption
that it makes us a Christian nation. Jewish people have
always used the word Lord referring to God and Muslims in
using Allah are referring to the same God.
For those who don't know it, Allah is the Arabic word for
God and even Jews in that area, if they speak Arabic, use the
word Allah.
So that does not make us a Christian nation.
The other writer assumes the word "oath" has got to refer
to God. Never assume. Check your dictionary. (Oath means)
1) a solemn appeal to God or to some revered person or
thing. 2) a statement or promise strengthened by such an
appeal. 3) the form of words in which such a statement or
promise is made.
The expression we sometimes hear, "I swear on my moth-
er's grave," could be typical of the first definition.

Don't make killers famous
with too much publicity

Twenty years ago, the poor slob who killed the holiday
shoppers in the Omaha shopping center would probably
have ended his sad life alone at home.
However, in the insane world we live in today, he knew
he could be famous if he took others with him as he says
in his suicide note.
He got what he wanted. So, the next slob who has trou-
ble handling life will follow his example. The media says
the public wants to know.
People, please step up. Tell your news stations that all
you want to know about a criminal is how to catch
him/her or how to protect yourself from others of his
type.

Pitfalls to avoid when choosing a car service department

and general manager ofEarl
Stewart Toyota in North
Palm Beach. The dealership
is located at 1215 N. Federal
Highway in Lake Park.

m.
Editor's note: This column
originally appeared in the
June 9,2006 edition.
Before I get into the
pitfalls, it is important
to understand how
important it is to have your
car serviced according to
the manufacturer's recom-
mendations. The pitfalls
and consequences of not
doing so can be equal to or
greater than those you
might experience at the
hands of an incompetent or
unethical service depart-
ment.
I strongly recommend
that you have your car
serviced and repaired by a
franchised dealer of the
make of your vehicle. I know
that this statement, coming
from a franchised car
dealer, may be met with
some skepticism. Listen to
my reasons before passing
judgment.
Modern vehicles are


highly complex computer-
ized machines requiring
very sophisticated diagnos-
tic equipment and highly
trained technicians. The
evolution of new, expensive
diagnostic equipment'
requires constant updating.
The evolution of car tech-
nology requires continuing
education of dealers' factory
trained technicians who
attend many weeks of
schools every year.
Forty years ago, it was
possible for a really good
mechanic to fix anybody's
car. Those days are gone
and your car needs a highly-
trained specialist with the
very latest diagnostic
equipment. It is impossible
for an independent service
company to be competent
in servicing and repairing
all makes of automobiles.
Carefully choose the
dealership that will service
your car. You.do not have to
take your car to the dealer-
ship that sold you the car for
warranty repairs, as many
believe. Every dealership of
your make car will welcome
your warranty and non-
warranty work.
Do your homework on
which dealer has the best
service department. Every
dealer is graded in customer
satisfaction by the manufac-
turer. Ask to see a copy of


*1


EARL STEWART
On Cars

his customer satisfaction
index scores. Check with the
Better Business Bureau and
the county office of con-
sumer affairs.
When you take your car in
for maintenance or repairs,
always ask for an estimate.
State law requires that a
service department not
exceed a written estimate by
more than 10 percent. When
paying the bill, scrutinize
the detail to be sure that you
know exactly what each
charge means.
Most service departments
add a fee on top of every-
thing else with various
labels such as "miscella-
neous supplies," "sundry
supplies," "environmental
handling," etc. This fee is
simply a 5 percent or 10


percent charge tacked onto
the total bill. If you object to
this fee, which you certainly
should, dealers will often
waive it.
You will find that prices
for maintenance such as oil
change, alignment, tire
rotation and balancing,
etc., are usually priced
competitively. Where you
have to be careful is in the
pricing of major repair
items like transmission,
engines and air-condition-
ers.
When quoted a price on a
big repair, don't be afraid to
negotiate. If you let it be
known that you are willing
to take your car elsewhere
(even if you're bluffing), you
can often negotiate the
price down significantly.
.You should always make
an appointment before
bringing your car in.
Appointments should be
scheduled at relatively slow
times and days. Avoid
bringing your car in early
on a Monday morning and
other very busy times. You
want the service advisor to
spend as much time with
you as is necessary. This will
allow you to drive the car
with the service advisor if
necessary to identify a
specific problem like a
squeak, rattle or vibration.
Pick your car up at a time


when the service advisor or
technician has time to road
test the car with you again
to be sure that the problem
was fixed.
Don't be shy about asking
for a loaner car when you
have to take your car back
two or three times for a
repair that was not done
properly. It's the dealer-
ship's fault and you should
not be inconvenienced. On
a comeback, always talk
with the service manager
directly and ask that they


assign their best technician
to the job.
As I have said in earlier
columns, there is nothing
more important than
choosing the right dealer-
ship to do business with. No
service department is
perfect and never makes a
mistake. What you want to
find is that service depart-
ment that, in addition to
being competent, will'fess
up to its occasional mis-
takes, sincerely apologize
and make them right.

If you plan to party this holiday,


It's a party time of year
and nobody wants to be
the party-pooper who
reminds everyone that
drinking and driving don't
mix.
I'm happy to be the
designated messenger for
this party-season: Drinking

REPAIRING YOUR VEHICLE
When it comes to replacing the
cosmetic parts that make up a vehi-
cle's outer skin (such as fenders,
hoods, and door panels), consumers
may be offered crash parts from either
the original-equipment manufacturer
(OEM) or from aftermarket crash
parts suppliers (generic). While
generic parts are usually less expen-
sive, consumers may question their
safety and quality. The fact is that
generic crash parts are often manu-
factured by the same supplier in the
same manner as OEM parts. This is an
issue consumers will want the repair
technician to make very clear.
Whether you choose generic or OEM
parts, you want to be sure you are get-
ting what you pay for and that the
quality of the work is of high standard.
Whenever you get your vehicle
repaired, whether it is the front fender
or a new radiator, you need to be able
to trust the parts that are being put
onto your vehicle. At ADVANTAGE
FORD OF STUART, we only use the
highest quality parts available. We will
go over any parts that are necessary
for your vehicle. When you bring your
automobile to 4000 S.E. Federal
Highway, you can trust that any work
done will be done right wit the right
parts. Questions? Call 772.781.6540.
We service most major makes and
models in addition to Ford and-
Lincoln/Mercury cars for your con-
venience.
HINT: As far as the Insurance Institute
for Highway Safety (IIHS) is con-
cerned, with the possible exception of
hoods, there are no safety implica-
tions of using cosmetic crash parts
from any source.


and driving don't mix and
there are many ways to
have a great holiday party
without putting yourself or
your loved ones at risk.
Mothers Against Drunk
Driving offers tips for hosts
and partygoers to avoid
becoming statistics during
the holiday season. You can
find their "Have a Ball,
Baby!" Safe Party Guide at
http://maddtx.org/maddpr
ograms/0,1056,4841,00.html
If you have doubts about
the dangers of drinking and
driving, and still feel that
the holiday time is different
and you can relax the rules,
MADD offers the following
sobering statistics:
In 2006, 17,602 people
were killed in alcohol-
related crashes, which is an
average of one every 30
minutes.
Alcohol-related deaths
account for nearly 41
percent of all traffic fatali-
ties.
Many more people are
seriously maimed and
injured in alcohol-related
accidents.
If you are having a holiday
party, and this includes


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
barbecues and tailgate
parties as well as traditional
holiday events, there are
things you need to know to
keep your party safe. This is
not only being a good,
responsible host. If you
serve liquor, you may be
liable for accidents caused
by your guests.
Donald Murray, MADD
Florida state executive
director, said that this
message cannot be overem-
phasized.
"We encourage those who
are going to host a party to
be responsible hosts and do
all they can to ensure that

their guests don't drink and
drive," he said.
"Guests should make
plans well in advance for a
designated driver, taxi or
alternate means of trans-
portation. Further, hosts
should understand that
they can be held legally
responsible for crashes
occurring as a result of
driving under the influence
that occurred as a result of
alcohol provided by the
host."
The following dos and
don't are taken from the
MADD Web site,

are the victim of a drunk
driver, you can call the toll

Have a "bartender" who
can keep track of how much
someone is drinking. Never
allow drinks to be served to
minors. Remember, a 12-
ounce, can of beer, a 5-
ounce glass of wine and an
ounce and a half of hard
liquor contain the same
amount of alcohol.

South Florida throughout
the spring. They were loos-
ened somewhat during the
typical summer rainy
months, but rainfall again
was scarce, and some of
those restrictions were
recently made permanent.
Martin County residents
can now only water their
lawns once a week, although
10 minutes of hand watering
is permitted for vegetation
in danger of dying. There are
noi restrictions on automo-
bile or boat washing.

Everglades and Indian
River Lagoon
restoration

Local en\ironmentalists
and government leaders
chewed the recent passage
of the $23 billion Water
Resources Development
Act, which was vetoed by.
President Bush but passed
with a congressional over-
ride,
Shepherded through con-
gress by Rep. Tim Mahoney,
the legislation includes $1.4
billion for Indian River
Lagoon restoration and $2
billion for Everglades
Restoration. The former will
include reservoirs to catch
storm runoff and the
restoration of wetlands to
help filter out pollutants.

Tax reform and local
municipal budgets

One of the top stories for
homeowners this year has
been the passage by state
representatives of the prop-
erty tax reform amendment,
which Florida voters will
decide on Jan. 29.
If approved by voters, the
bill would double the home-
stead exemption from
$25,000 to $50,000, as well as
allow up to $300,000 of a
home's value to be portable.
That means that homeown-
ers could choose to upgrade
or downgrade without fear
of being hit with a substan-
tially higher property tax
bill.
While good news to those
with homestead exemption,
the potential passage of the
amendment is becoming a
nightmare for county and
municipal administrators
unsure of how their budgets
will be impacted by the
measure. For the past sever-
al months, both the city of
Stuart and Martin County
have left vacant positions
unfilled due to funding
uncertainties.
County commissioners
have already requested that
each department head find
ways to trim at least 15 per-
cent from his or her individ-
ual budget, just in case.
Commissioners have
declined to talk about the
possibility of layoffs until
the amendment either pass-
es or fails in January.

To grow or not to
grow

Many Martin County resi-
dents have been nervously


watching over their shoul-
ders to the south in fear of
what some call the
encroaching "Browardiza-
tion" of the region, in refer-
ence to the massive growth
of Broward County, Fort
Lauderdale and the Palm
Beach area.
Although Martin County
commissioners have tradi-
tionally leaned toward slow
growth with strict density
requirements and four-story
height limitations, recent
commission decisions have
altered the county's highly
regarded comprehensive
growth plan to allow more
density in the agricultural
lands west of 1-95.
The highly controversial
Land Preservation Amend-
ment, 'nicknamed the Val-
liere Amendment after its
sponsor Commissioner
Susan Valliere, was
approved 3-2 by the com-
mission on Dec. 11, with
commissioners Sarah Heard
and Lee Weberman dissent-
ing.
The three commissioners
backing the legislation said
- it was the only way to gain
coveted conservation lands,
while those against it said it
would open up the rural
region to unprecedented
growth. The amendment
reduces the density requires
from a 20-acre minimum
per house to two acres, but
requires developers to "clus-
ter" the development on
only one part of the land,
with the rest dedicated to
open space.
Former county commis-
sioner Mary Dawson helped
craft the amendment, which
was opposed by local envi-
ronmentalist Maggie
Hurchella.
County commissioners
also approved the Pitchford
Landing development for
Jensen Beach, a project that
has been a hot news topic
for all of 2006 and 2007. The
only dissenting vote was
cast by Commissioner Sarah
Heard, who's known for her
anti-growth stance.
This particular project
has been characterized by a
flurry of lawsuits and
counter-suits filed by the
developer and a vocal
opposition group known as
the Jensen Beach Group.
Commissioner Michael
DiTerlizzi, in fact, warned
the developer not to begin
construction on the project
until all court cases had
been resolved on the mat-
ter.
For its part, the city of
Stuart grew slightly in 2007,
incorporating 37.7 acres
along south Federal High-
way to allow a developer to
locate his upscale shopping
center located within city
limits.
That project, The Foun-
tains at Stuart, will be a
325,000-square foot shop-
ping center home to some
50 exclusive shops and
restaurants. The center
almost ran into a snag how-
ever, when a requested road
reconfiguration threatened
to hinder the county's
marine industry.
The city approved several


other commercial projects
as well, mostly along the
Kanner Highway corridor.

Preparing for growth
Regardless of which stance
Martin County Commission-
ers take on growth, most of
them realize the importance
of beefing up infrastructure
to meet the needs of the
future.
Commissioners approved
the final southern leg of the
Green River Parkway on Dec.
18, with commissioner
Sarah Heard dissenting. The
new roadway will connect
the northern portion, which
currently extends from
Jensen Beach Boulevard to
Walton Road in St. Lucie
County, to Baker Road on
the south. It will also feature
an intersection with Winde-
mere Drive, which will open
up another east-west route
to, U.S. 1 for local Jensen
Beach residents.
Commissioners Heard
and Valliere, along with
numerous Jensen Beach res-
idents, opposed the project
because it passes through
environmentally sensitive
lands and within 60 feet of
some homes.
The commissioners back-
ing the roadway extension
say it's necessary to help get
traffic off of U.S. 1 and help
meet the state's highway
concurrency standards.
The county commission
also voted unanimously to
widen Kanner Highway from
four to six lands between
Cove Road and 1-95. The
road will be widened in
phases and should be com-
pleted by 2018.
Due to the increased traf-
fic counts in the area, the
county had held up the
building permits of numer-
ous projects in the area until
the congestion issue could
be addressed. A group of
developers have even
offered to contribute more
than $2 million to expedite
the process.
Local and state officials
have also been fighting to
maintain funding for the
proposed $110 million Indi-
an Street Bridge crossing
over the South Fork of the St.
Lucie River. The proposed
bridge would offer an alter-
nate route between Palm
City and Stuart, as well as
relieving congestion on the
County Road 714 bridge.
The project has had the
backing of Rep. Tim
Mahoney, who's fought sev-
eral times to keep the its
funding on track.

Maintaining a young
girl's dream
Molly's House, the fulfill-
ment of a dying teenager's
dream to provide a home
away from home in Stuart
for the families of hospital
patients, wound up the year
with a new director in place..
Louise Murtaugh, the for-
mer president of the Jupiter,
Tequesta and Juno Beach
Chamber of Commerce,
took over as director on Oct.
29 and has already made
great strides in reaching out
to the community with
Molly's vision.
Now beginning its 12th


year, Molly's House was a
hot topic earlier this year
due. to public confronta-
tions between former direc-
tor Judy Cruz and Molly's
parents, Kevin and Debby
Sharkey, who brought their
daughters dream to
fruition.
The Sharkey's made fre-
quent calls for Ms. Cruz's
removal, saying that she
and the "board of directors
had violated the family's
unwritten agreement to
always have a family mem-
ber on the board. Bill Rolo,
the board president, came
to bat for Ms. Cruz and
defending her work, saying
she'd done a,"fine job" dur-
ing her five-year tenure.
The Sharkey's said they
were very pleased with Ms.
Murtaugh and that she's
brought a renewed warmth
to the house and a clearer
direction for its future.

But as my true love,
Jeannie, and I walked
farther into central Rome, I
gradually became immersed
in this host city and, for the
most part, relished being a
foreigner.
Scooters, motorbikes, cars
and buses gunned their way
around the Victor
Emmanuel Monument, a
castle-like building where
Mussolini used to deliver
speeches from a balcony.
Chariots of fire galloped
atop its towers, reminding
me of Caesar's Palace in Las
Vegas.
Nearby was a graceful
present: The Pantheon,
supported by thick
columns, with candlelight
shining on its interior gold
crosses, white sculptures,
and paintings rich in
biblical scenes.
Outside, a carved face
lightheartedly spit water
into a fountain next to
diners under canopies and
the night's shy moon.
Besides my passport and
money, my camera was my


tiny Mr. Bean-like cars
running along the city
streets. Although I'm sure
these pint-sized vehicles
provide great gas mileage,
their drivers probably prefer
them because of the mostly
narrow, twisted streets in
Rome, which has nearly 4
million residents.
While those Roman
streets seemed quieter than
their American counter-
parts, good luck crossing
them as a pedestrian!
Near the Victor
Emmanuel Monument, we
saw a police officer, whose
uniform included white
gloves and a helmet,
directing many rows of
traffic from a platform
inside a roundabout. But
overall, I saw few crosswalks
and traffic signals, and we
often had to pray that the
drivers would stop for us.
Besides having to dodge
traffic, we weren't thrilled at
the graffiti on buildings near
the central bus and train
terminal.
Still, those recollections
are easily overshadowed by
the opulence found in most.
other parts of Rome we
visited.
My better memories of
the city include one of an
old man in a dark gray suit
reaching into a box of treats
for dozens of pigeons in an
ancient square.
Surrounding the square
were buildings dressed in
different colors of paint,
with windows graced by
arches. Their designers
succeeded in creating
enduring beauty.
Also standing the test of
time, of course, was the
Colosseum. It's worth
setting aside at least two
hours to explore its vast
remains.
Just as enjoyable were the
views of some of Rome's


stately homes, where we
spotted tangerine trees in
courtyards, flowerboxes
outside windows and
elaborate light fixtures.
At the Trevi Fountain,
Rome's largest, Jeannie and
I enjoyed a night view of a
figure of Neptune and other
statues. Some men sold
roses and other items to
'tourists who arrived by the
busload.
The equally crowded
Spanish Steps.were fun to
visit, but a massive adver-
tisement between church
towers at the top of the
steps spoiled some of the
scene.
At Vatican City the
world's smallest state we
saw a church official
walking down stairs
between two colorfully
dressed guards. Inside St.
Peter's, we were awed by
Michelangelo's Pieta, which
he created in 1499 at age 25.
It looked flawless.
Statues of cherubs, angels
and popes were everywhere,
from eye level to ceiling,
and throngs of admirers
enjoyed them quietly.
Outside again, we spotted
a hummingbird hovering
above the Tiber River. We
crossed bridges lined with
statues and, at an outdoor
caf6, enjoyed thin-crusted
pizza with red wine.
Whenever possible, we
dined,outside. One of our
few indoor meals was at
. Papa Rex, a restaurant we
stopped at during a night
tour of Rome. Here, live
Italian and Roman folk
songs accompanied our
feast.
Our dinner party included
couples from South Caroli-
na and NewYork. I realized
it was Thanksgiving and,
with a trace of homesick-
ness, I made a toast.
Near the end of our


whirlwind trip to Italy,
Jeannie and I went on a
three-hour train ride from
Rome to Florence. Vine-
yards, hills covered with
orange and brown houses
and concrete picket fences
sailed past our window.
To me, Florence looked
and smelled medieval.
Many of.its huge, ancient
buildings seemed layered
with soot. I remember
smelling smoke from a
woodstove while walking
toward the Duomo,
Europe's fourth-largest
church.
As they did near the
bridges in Rome, artists set
up their easels outside the
Duomo and offered paint-
ings for sale. Intricate
shapes and figures on the
exteriors of the Duomo, and
The Bapistry next door,
made these two structures
the most impressive forms
of architecture I saw in Italy.
But there were simpler
scenes in Florence that I
also cherish, such as a lone,
silver-colored scooter
parked next to a mustard-
colored building with
wooden doors and shutters.
One of the last photos I
took in Italy was of a view
from a restaurant we ate at
in Florence. The picture
shows a bottle of wine on
our outside table in the
foreground, with statues,
including a copy of
Michelangelo's David, in the
back.
'Here at home, I enjoy
remembering such sights
and experiences and, with a
trace of longing, I make a
toast.

Director Mike Moon had
already given his nod of
approval to financially back
the local air show, but the
county commission must
approve the expenditure
next year during a time
when a 15 percent across the
board budget cut is expected
in the light of property tax
reform. At least one com-
missioner, Michael DiTerl-
izzi, said he wanted to ana-
lyze the numbers to gauge
the economic impact of the
show, which also receives
$25,000 annually from the
Tourist Development Coun-


cil, another board upon
which Mr. DiTerlizzi sits. Air
show officials submitted
financial figures earlier this
year to the commission.
which showed a S110,000
profit .for the 2006 show,
$51,000 for the 2005 show;
and a Ibss of $34,500 in 2004.

palities, school boards and
other entities utilize the
investment pool, which
operates like a money mar-
ket account and offers easy
withdrawals and fund trans-
- fers. After the news leaked
out that some of the pool's
investments had been
sharply down-rated, the
investors caused a run on
the account, reducing its $27
billion balance by half in a
two-week period. It
reopened on Dec. 7 with
numerous restrictions,
although new funds can be
deposited and 'withdrawn
freely.
interested investment
firms are requested to sub-
mit their proposals no later
than Jan. 23, with a decision
expected by early March.

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
United for Families float-
ed into the holiday season
Dec, 7 with its Key West
themed entry in the Stuart
Christmas parade.
The float, a 16-foot long
trailer featuring a pink and
yellow playhouse and a
sand yard full of a sand cas-
tle, Santa and sand man,
was crafted by several Unit-
ed for Families volunteers
and Homecrete Homes.
More than 15 local chil-
dren and teen-agers partici-


pated in the United for Fam-
ilies entry. The entry did not
win any of the parade
awards, but United for Fam-
ilies staff was proud of its
own accomplishments.
"Last year we just wanted
to get our name out there, so
we borrowed a truck from
Toyota of Stuart, slapped
some lights on it, dressed up
a few kids and threw them
in the back of the truck,"
said Christina Kaiser, com-
munity development direc-
tor for the agency. "This year
we had a terrific float, creat-


ed by an incredibly creative
and hard-working commit-
tee."
The playhouse on the
float was raffled off Dec. 11
during the Stuart Chamber
of Commerce Breakfast,
which was hosted by United
for Families. Yvonne Esco-
bar, a United for Families
contracts manager, was the
winning ticket holder.

Aries-March 21-April 19
It's time to count your blessings. We are in the
holiday season now. This year has been both fruit-
ful and challenging. Hang in there. Your persever-
ance will soon be rewarded. The New Year looks
promising. Change is in the air. First, learn from the
past and bless it for what it taught you. Now
release it, move on and grow new life.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Stop carrying the burdens of others who pull you
down and sap your strength. Be good to them but
stop trying to fix them. Fix you first. When you
demonstrate self-respect others respect you more.
Now you have better choices and more time. With
this new time, get back to doing one thing you love
but have given up this year. Let happiness prevail.

Compassion and idealism, along with a strong
sense of humor, best describes your attitude

need for balance keeps you humble and focused

fun to be around and you continue to inspire oth-

Scorpio-Ot. 23-Nov. 21
The world sees you as calm and peaceful, but

DINB a ENIERI RINMENT


Celebrate New Year with a special Italian treat


H ello. Hope you had a
wonderful, blessed
Christmas.
Now it's time to ring in
2008. Here are a couple of
NewYear's traditions for you
to ponder.
Up North, eating a piece of
pickled herring at midnight
and touching a dollar bill,
symbolically, means there
will always be food on the
table and money in your
pocket.
Here in the South you
must eat pork and black-
eyed peas on NewYear's
Day.
I can remember New
Year's Eve being a celebra-
tion where we made as
much noise as possible at
the stroke of midnight. I
have some noisemakers
from my parents that date
back more than 70 years (no
cut fingers from sharp
metal, that's for sure).
To me, it's a capital sin to
be sleeping at midnight. I
used to wake my kids up
just to make noise. Silly?
Childish? Maybe so, but I
hope to never lose that
excitement.
Resolve to love one
another more. Don't think
there will always be tomor-
row. Sometimes tomorrow
never comes.
Today's column is a tribute
to "Mamma," my paternal
grandmother.
For NewYear's she made
cookies; not regular cookies
but special Italian treats
coated with honey and
topped with colored candy
sprinkles. Strufoli (honey
clusters) many of you are
familiar with, but her other
specialty I'll bet you've
never heard of tordillo
(hope the spelling is right),
which was made with olive
oil and wine. It was every-
one's favorite.
When I finally decided to
make them, I kept hearing
Mamma saying, "You have
to feel when it's right."
Back my memory went to


49M


ARLENE BORG
Romancing the Stove
with the Grammy Guru

when I was 17. I had asked
for the recipe and Mamma
said in her delightful Italian
accent, "You come over and
we do it together.",
-What I thought was going
to be very easy turned out to
be a bit of a fiasco when I
kept questioning Mamma's
instructions.
Here's how it went while
making the tordillos:
Mamma: "Dump flour on
the board."
Me: "How much flour?"
Mamma: "This much," she
said, pointing to the flour
on the board. "Make a hole
in the center of the flour
and pour in 1 glass of wine
and 1/2 glass oil."
Me: "What size glass?"
Mamma: Her voice rising,
she held up the glass and
said, "This size!"
"Now mix it all together
until it feels right."
At that point I just couldn't
resist. "What does 'right' feel
like?"
She threw her hands up in
desperation and said, "Don't
say another word. You ask
too many questions. Watch
what I do and DO it."
In most traditional
cooking, you have to "feel"
when it's right. I've taken
that "feel" and tried to put it
into measurements for you
in all the family recipes I
have given you. While
making these cookies, I

* Money-saving tip: Buy
honey in grocery warehous-
es or from local sources.

TORDILLO (NIB)
The wine used for these
cookies was Muscatel. If you
can't find it, use a slightly
sweet white wine or a dry
white wine, such as chablis,
mixed with 1 teaspoon of
sugar.
4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup extra virgin olive
oil warmed slightly in the
microwave
3/4 cup wine
Canola oil, enough to fill a
medium saucepan
halfway
1 cup honey
1-1/2 tbsp. sugar
Multi-colored candy
sprinkles

Using the dough hook on
your electric mixer or a food
processor, mix first three
ingredients together. Place
dough on cutting board and
knead for about 5 minutes
until smooth and silky
Break off small pieces of
dough and roll into a
cylinder about 1/2-inch
wide and 2-inches long.
Place thumb (or 3 fingers) in
center of cylinder and press
dough down firmly as you
push forward then toward
you, causing the cylinder to
curl and look somewhat like
a seashell.
Fry cookies a few at a


ONLY ORGANIC PR
We believe that this
created from the fin


time until golden. Drain on
paper towels.
In a medium saucepan,
bring honey and sugar to a
boil, lower heat and simmer
for 5 minutes. Add cookies a
few at a time, turning to
coat. Remove to a platter
with a slotted spoon. Dust
with sprinkles.
Note: Cookies can be
made, fried and stored in an
airtight container forweeks.

Shops for the troops


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
Employees from Family
Private Care, a Nurse Reg-
istry serving the Treasure
Coast and Palm Beaches,
banded together to make
the holidays a bit brighter
for our soldiers in the
Army Third Infantry Divi-
sion currently serving in
Iraq.
In lieu of purchasing
Christmas gifts for the staff


of Family Private Care, the
ladies decided to shop for
the troops.
"We are honored to have
the opportunity to do this
for our troops," said Lois
Sherry, director of nurses.
"In lieu of exchanging
small gifts during the
Christmas season. We are
so appreciative of their
service to our Country, and
we sincerely thank each of
them."


The troops of the Third
Infantry Division are espe-
cially important to the
employees of Family Pri-
vate Care. "We especially
want to say thank you to
Lt. Trevor Plummer, son of
one of Family Private
Care's referral coordina-
tors, Sandy Plummer and
fiance of our receptionist,
Bethany Holden," said Ms.
Sherry.

From page B1


attracted, the notice of
record 'producers; their
first CD, released in 2005,
was No. 1 on the classical
charts for eight weeks and
their .second, "No Bound-
aries," spent 21 weeks on
the charts.
They've toured the world
but remain down-to earth
and concerned about the
message their music
sends. .
"One of our biggest goals
is to get a younger genera-
tion into classical music,"
Desirae said; "We talk to
them in their language. We
do outreach and converse
with audiences."
Her brother, Gregory, 24,
who is studying for a doc-
torate in piano perform-
ance at the University of
Utah, echoes her feelings.
"At each of our concerts,
one-third of our audience
is college-aged or
younger," he said. "I think
that the five of us want to
be ourselves on stage; we
don't normally wear tuxes.
The audience can see that


we're being genuine. We're
enthusiastic about the
music and not too stuffy."
His sister, Melody, 24, a
supporter of the VH1 'Save
the Music' program, cites
the wonderful reaction
from young people on
their recent tour in Ger-
many and Asia as evidence
that young people do
respond to their love for
what they do.
SThe Browns' new CD,
"Brown in Blue," features
classical works by Rach-
maninoff and Chopin as
well as more contempo-
*rary pieces with a jazz
influence. They play
Gershwin and W. C. Handy,
"Tango," by Piazzolla and a
newly-recorded track of
"Everybody Loves Some-
body," featuring the vocals
of Dean Martin.
There is also a newly
-commissioned piece by
John Novacek, "Reflections
on Shenandoah."
Deondra, 27, hopes that
this helps a younger gener-
ation appreciate the


music.
"We wanted to try differ-
ent things, challenge our-
selves, and show different
sides of our personality,"
she said. "It's introspec-
tive, with some classical
pieces, some jazz. The
audience can see all
aspects of our personality."
Desirae, who paved the
path for her family at Juil-
liard, remains committed
to being a trail-blazer. One
of her heroes is Martha
Argerich, the classical
pianist from Argentina,
whom she admires for her
success in a field still dom-
inated by men.
"Let's be honest," she
said. "Look at the orches-
tras or the conductors or
the legendary concert
pianists. Women need to
be more confident. The
glass ceiling will be bro-
ken."
The Browns, several of
whom have married in the
last few years, remain
based in Utah and all live
about 30 minutes from the


family home in Alta, where
they rehearse.
While they are intensely
serious about their music,
they know how to have
fun, on stage and off. Gre-
gory's dream is to appear
on the ABC hit, "Dancing
with the Stars." He wants
to do the jive with profes-
sional dancer Julianne
Hough.
It's for the youngest,
Ryan, 21, who credits the
piano with improving his
video gaming ability, who
sums it up.
"I think it's important
that we be ourselves on
stage and include the
audience," he said. "I want
to bring joy to other peo-
ple while never losing the
joy myself."
The Five Browns appear
at the Lyric Theatre, 59
S.W. Flagler Ave., Stuart, on
Dec. 7-8. Tickets for the 8
p.m. shows, sponsored by
the Treasure Coast Concert
Association, are $60. Call

Star Struck Performing
Arts Center will present
the musical, "I Love You,
You're Perfect, Now
Change" in January; the
Pineapple Playhouse
offers the comedy "Opal's
Million Dollar Duck," and
Shiloh Theatrical Produc-
tions presents the
improbably-named
musical comedy "Urine-
town."
The Treasure Coast
Concert Association,
under the leadership of
the wonderful Ernie
Berlin, brings top-notch
classical musical to the
Treasure Cdast. On Jan. 7-
8, the five siblings, The
Five Browns, bring their 5


pianos and 50 fingers to
the Lyric Theatre, and on
Jan. 18, Ben Heppner, one
of the greatest Wagnerian
tenors of his generation,
brings a .program of
opera and other music. I
had the pleasure of inter-
viewing the Browns and
Mr. Heppner; they were
delightful to talk to and
promise shows that will
be entertaining and not
intimidating. You don't
need to be an expert on
classical music or opera


to enjoy these programs.
The only way for live
theater and music to
thrive is for people to
support it. Whether it's
live music at clubs or per-
formances in the theater,
the only way to keep it
coming is to support it.
Live theater and music
enriches our community;
let's keep it coming.

A Happy New Year to
all.

Forget about names and enjoy

listening to Soul Rebel's music


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
When you find out that the
lead singer for the.band Soul
Rebel is named Desi Kane
and discover that he lives in


Port St. Lucie, you can't help
but think of a comedy duo
with Lucy and Desi in their
names.
However, Desi Kane chose
his stage name from a char-
acter named Dez in the

movie, "Desperately Seeking
Susan," not from the Cuban
bandleader.
If that weren't confusing
enough, 'the band's name
comes from a Bob Marley
song, "Soul Rebel," but the
band doesn't. specialize in
island music.
"I'm a big fan of Bob Mar-
ley," he said. "We honey-
mooned in Jamaica in the
late 1970s and I saw him
perform in Pittsburgh. I felt
a real connection and he
was a real influence."
The band, in its current
incarnation for three years,
consists of Kevin Peck on
guitar, Garry Nutt on bass,
Jimmy Autin on keyboard,
and of course, Desi Kane on
drums, vocals and harmoni-
ca.
S"It's all about having a
rebel attitude with your soul
music," .Mr. Kane said. "It's
rockabilly with soul, James
Brown .Wilson Pickett. It's
southern rock and rebel soul
music. Soul Rebel is all
about dancing. It's about
people asking for a song to
dance to or a song,for their
girlfriend. Women are the
first ones to get up and it's

totally acceptable for them
to dance with each other.
Then the guys can't help. it
and before you know it,
everybody's up and they're
having a great time."
While Soul Rebel covers
popular songs like' "Brown-
Eyed Girl," that is only a
small part of Desi Kane's
passion.
"There are only so many
hours in a week, and I spend
a few hours on stage," he
said. "It's much less time
than I spend writing and
recording. To me, unless
you write and compose,
you're missing a big chunk
of what it is to be an artist".
Mr. Kane also performs as
a duo with keyboardist
Jimmy Autin, and the two
got together over a medical
problem.
"I had a paralyzed vocal
chord and Jimmy is an ear,
nose and throat surgeon,"'
Mr. Kane says. "That's' how I
met him. He's a doctor, but
he loves to play."
The band will be perform-
ing at the first Friday Fest of
the new year, at Main Street
Fort Pierce on Jan. 4, 2008.
They'll be performing
songs from the CD "Wave-'
land," a blues-based album'
that Desi Kane wrote from'
2000-2002 and which was
recorded with his Pittsburgh
band at Duquesne Universi-
ty. The musicians of Soul
Rebel 'have added several
cuts to make it their own,
Mr. Kane says, and there is a
new song, as well.
"It's as pertinent today as it
was then," he said. "I'm very
proud of it."
The Soul Rebel Duo
appears at the Osceola Street
Cafd, 25 S.W. Osceola Street,
Stuart, on Dec. 31,from 7-11

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
The sun, Mercury and
Jupiter are all in Capricorn
right now. This is potent ener-
gy. Make a list of the things
you want in the New Year.
Then affirm them out loud.
Now the universe will begin
to help you bring them into
physical reality. What a won-
derful way to start the New
Year. With all this going for
you, you will be a rousing suc-
cess all year. This is good
medicine.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your only limits are those
you place on yourself. Be bold
and mighty forces will come
to your aid. The ball is in your
court. The pen is in your
hand. Let your actions create
new arid exciting plans. Invest
in yourself. Be artistic and
intellectual at the same time.
Live your dreams. It's your
destiny. You can do it. Then
give back and share your joy
with those you love. What a
great life.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Where do you get all the
energy? You continue to
amaze all your friends. You
seem to have a never- ending
supply of drive and fortitude.
You know what you want and
you continue to go for it. You
usually get what you want.
The key is to pace yourself.
When you get tired or
stressed out, take a step back
arid regroup. No reason to
burn out now.

PORTSihing upon stars


Wishing upon stars


BY TOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
In a time of year where
wishes and dreams seem to
magically come true, several
area sports figures gave their
take on what they'd like to see
happen in 2008.
Having recently received a
state championship gift
wrapped by his players,


Jensen Beach volleyball c6ach
Mike Sawtelle hoped every-
one touched by the title run
would be able to sense its sig-
nificance.
"I wish the players, coaches
and family members could all
step back and realize that the
success we've had winning
the state championship is a
I See WISH, 813


A sports year worth remembering


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
The most appealing
aspect of sports is that
there is never a day with-
out one being played. The
seasons may change, but
there is continuously a
team or athlete that com-
pels you to watch, to cheer
and to read about the next
day.
This year was no differ-
ent especially along the
Treasure Coast, as many
players and teams turned
in memorable perform-
ances that generated not
only local interest but
across the state as well.
The following are some of
the best sports stories of
2007:


10. Treasure Coast makes
us Remember the Titans -
Very few sports get peo-
ple's motor running like
high school football.
Unfortunately, Treasure
Coast ran out of gas before
it hit the track in 2006,
going 0-10 in its inaugural
season offering little
hope for excitement.
This season started off
the same, as Sebastian
River defeated the Titans
40-18. Treasure Coast
showed sparks of life
throughout the game,
however, getting a scintil-
lating 56-yard run from
Rock Angrande to pull
within 13-6 in the opening
moments of the second
quarter and two long
touchdown passes at the


end of the third quarter.
The following week,
Treasure Coast took on
local rival Port St. Lucie.
The Jaguars jumped out to
a 14-0 lead and it appeared
the Titans would have to
wait yet another week to
garner its first win in
school history.
However, Travis Jones
had touchdown runs of 14
and 16, yards, sandwiched
around a 35-minute rain
delay and suddenly the
score was tied at 14.
After each team
exchanged scores, the
game was knotted up once
again at 22. With 42 sec-
onds left in the game and
the Titans facing a fourth-
and-goal from the 3-yard
line, Jones plowed into the


end zone, giving Treasure
Coast a dramatic come-
from-behind win.
The Titans finished the
season a much-improved
3-7, and look poised to
make some noise once fall
rolls around.
9. Sebastian River flows
to seventh heaven For
the past six seasons, the
words Sebastian River vol-
leyball and district cham-
pions have become syn-
onymous. Despite
struggling throughout the
2007 campaign, the Sharks
were determined to make
it lucky number seven.

patched of Treasure Coast

taking on the unfamiliar
role as underdog to top-
seeded Satellite in the
championship.
The Scorpions jumped
on top 5-0 and later led 16-
11, as the Sharks looked
bewildered and confused.
Fortunately, Sebastian was
able to regroup on the
strength of inspired play
by seniors Callie Church-
well and Emily McCall.
The Sharks took the
opening game 25-20 and
went on to a three-game
win to capture its seventh-
consecutive district crown.
Churchwell led the way
with team-high 26 kills
while McCall chipped in 30
assists, seven digs and five
blocks.
Although the team fal-
tered later in the playoffs,
the drive for eight looks
awfully great for 2008.
8. Fort Pierce Westwood
claws its way to the top -
After losing a closely
contested game in the sea-
son opener to Vero Beach,
it appeared the Fort Pierce
Westwood football team
would once again take a
back seat to its area rivals
in 2007.
However, after a 16-14
win over the favored South
Fork Bulldogs at Lawn-
wood Stadium was fol-
lowed by another nailbiter

Westwood found itself at
2-1.
Both games showcased
the Panthers' ability to
come from behind. West-
wood squandered a 10-0
lead against South Fork
only to fall behind 14-10
with less than a quarter to
play in the game.
Isaac Virgin replaced
John Clements at quarter-
back and proceeded to
connect with Devondre
Blakely on a 50-yard pass
play with 2:52 left in the
game to pull out the
thrilling win.
The following week, after
a scoreless tie in the first
half, Centennial pulled
ahead 7-0 when quarter-
back Dustin Bergstol hit
Jamaine Sherman on a 9-
yard touchdown.
The lead would be short-
lived, as Leon Shorter
hauled in a 37-yard touch-
down pass to tie the score.
With just under four
minutes left in the game,
Westwood recovered a
fumble on the Centennial
11-yard line, leading to
touchdown run by Javian
Evans. Evans rushed for 68
yards in the game, as West-
wood had a two-game win-
ning streak.
The victories continued
to pile up as the season
rolled on. Westwood
brought a 7-2 record into
its annual showdown with
Fort Pierce Central and
proceeded to humiliate its
city rival 34-0.
Next up was a three-way
dance for the District 13-
4A title'with Okeechobee
and Martin County. After
the Brahmans took care of
the Tigers in the first quar-
ter 7-0, Westwood returned
the favor in the second.
The Panthers got a 4-
yard touchdown run from
Jerrell Washington and
held on for a 7-0 win to
.garner it second district
title in three years and
10th overall.
Unfortunately, West-
wood wasn't able to keep
the momentum going, los-
ing to West Boca Raton 27-
7 in the Region 4-4A quar-
terfinal. Despite the loss,
the Panthers finished an
impressive 8-3 and are no
longer on football's endan-
gered species list.
7. Port St. Lucie baseball
team nearly pitches com-
plete season The Port St.
Lucie Jaguars baseball
team gave the word come-
back a whole new meaning
in 2007.
After a stellar regular
season, the Jaguars squad
found itself down 2-0 to


Newsome in the state
semifinals, just four outs
from elimination.
With the bases loaded in
the bottom of the sixth
inning, Port St. Lucie's Max
Scarogni hit a dribbler to
third base that resulted in
a throwing error. The mis-
cue ignited a seven-run
rally that sent the Jaguars
into the state final for the
first time in the program's
18-year history.
The victory marked the
sixth time in the playoffs
that the Jaguars were tied
or behind after the sixth
inning and came out with
a win.
In the FIISAA 5A Final,
Port St. Lucie met Venice.
Things were going
smoothly for the Jaguars
until the fifth inning when
Venice exploded for nine
runs on its way to a 12-1
six-inning win.
Despite the loss, the
team finished 25-8, setting
the benchmark for Jaguars'
teams for years to come.
6. Area athletes put their
names on the dotted line
-While the goal of practi-
cally every athlete is to
make it to the pros one day
in their chosen field of
expertise, a major step in
achieving those dreams is
to play at the collegiate
level.
To that end, many area
athletes recently turned
those wishes into reality,
signing with colleges
throughout the country in
an effort to ultimately
make it to the big time.
The Treasure Coast made
its mark on the golf course,
as five of its athletes
signed with successful
programs.
Ryan Black took his
prowess on the links to the
University of West Florida.
The Argonauts finished the
fall season ranked No. 1 in
Division II and are consis-
tently in contention for the
top spot, most recently
winning a NCAA Division
II Championship in 2001.
After helping Saint
Edward's achieve new
heights, Jack Beindorf
signed with Auburn. The
Tigers finished third in the
SEC last season, as well as
tying for second at the
NCAA East Regional.
Port St. Lucie's Jennifer
Gartin signed with Stetson,
becoming the first female
golfer for the Jaguars tq
sign a Division-I scholar-
ship.
Rounding out the list are
Jensen's Maria Castellanos
and Lincoln Park's Justin
Dorward. Arguably the top


golfers on the Treasure
Coast this past season, the
tandem are headed to the
University of Louisville.
Both Castellanos and
Dorward bring excellent
games to the next level
having finished tied for
fourth and second at the
state tournament, respec-
tively.
Many local athletes
excelled on the diamond
as well, leading to oppor-
tunities at the next level.
Spencer Dickinson of
South Fork is headed to
Florida State University
while Colton Rudd of Port
St. Lucie and John. Cer-
vantes of Treasure Coast
are looking to make an
impact in the University of
South Carolina-Beaufort's
inaugural season.
Mari Stokes and Melinda
Dulkowski make up a for-
midable one-two punch
for St. Lucie West Centen-
nial, and are both looking
to bring their successful
softball skills to the next
level, with Stokes headed
to Palm Beach Atlantic and
Dulkowski to Gardner-
Webb.
Tessa Frates of South
Fork also will be lacing up
her softball spikes, but for
Samford University.
On the volleyball court,
state champion Brett Ben-
zio of Jensen Beach joins
Tulane while Rachael
Albright of Martin County
and Callie Churchwell of
Sebastian River join forces
at Kennesaw State Univer-
sity.
James Turner of Lincoln
Park will be swimming
with the Gators while
Camille Kramer of Vero
Beach brings her excep-
tional lacrosse skills to the
prestigious John Hopkins.
Last but not least is Lau-
ren Rooney who will be
riding horses at Auburn.
5. Vero'Beach Indians on
the warpath once again -
After.a disappointing sea-
son in 2006, the Vero
Beach Indians football
team quickly served notice
that it didn't have any
reservations about win-
ning its way a powerful
running attack and a
smothering defense.
Case in point was Vero
Beach's second game of
the season against Lake
Worth. Taking on standout
quarterback Star Jackson,
the Indians -harassed the
future Alabama superstar
all night, forcing him out
of his game plan.
Offensively, the Indians

From page B10
did all its talking on the
ground rushing 52 times
for 332 yards. The result
was a 41-14 lopsided win
that set the tone for Vero's
season.
2007 saw the Indians
gain a measure of revenge
.against perennial power-
house Palm Beach Gar-
dens, dispatching the 2005
6A champions 24-21 after
a heartbreaking loss a year
ago.
The Gators suffered the
same fate when it returned
for a three-way tiebreaker
for the District 7-6A title in
November. After Palm
Beach had eliminated
Jupiter, Vero Beach cap-
tured its 16th crown with a
10-0 win.
The playoffs saw Vero
Beach face another famil-
iar foe in Lake Worth. Gone
were the memories the
rout in September, as the
Trojans built a 14-0 half-
time lead.
Not to be deterred, Vero
Beach came back to score
24 second-half points to
win the game 24-21. The
victory sent the Indians to
the Region 2-6A semifinal
where the team faced a
tough ParkVista squad.
After a scoreless first
quarter, the Cobras scored
a touchdown just before
halftime. Park Vista main-
tained a 7-0 lead until the
fourth quarter when a Vero
Beach fumble led to the
Cobras finding the end
zone once again.
Like it did all season, the
team wouldn't quit, as
Shawn O'Dare hit Zeke
Motta on a 25-yard touch-
down pass a few minutes
later to cut the Cobras'
lead in half.
Vero Beach had an,
opportunity to tie the
score with under a minute
left in the game, but an
O'Dare pass on fourth
down was deflected, end-
ing the Indians' magic car-
pet ride.
However, the 9-3 season
placed Vero Beach back
among the state's best and
offered hope for possibly
another championship
run. 1 .*
4. Vero Beach team takes
the state to the mat The
Vero Beach girls' wrestling
team was the best-kept
secret on the Treasure
Coast.
Now, after a dominant
season that culminated in
a state championship, the
Indians' wrestlers left their
opponents with many
painful reminders of just
who they were.
Since its inception eight
S..years' ago ifth just tWo:
members, Dr. Sam Cassara
slowly built the squad into
Sa team in the true sense of
the word. This past season
marked the first time Vero
Beach was able to put a full
contingent of wrestlers on
the mat, and it paid off in
huge dividends.
The team swept all six
tournaments, it entered,
leading up to the state
'meet highlighted by a
competition in Orlando
early in the season in
which the Indians
scorched its way to 202
points, 56 more than its
nearest opponent.
After finishing third in
the state for the past four
seasons, Vero Beach
entered this year's contest
with several wrestlers hav-
ing career years. Janexis
Rodriguez brought a 13-0
'record into the final match
of the year, and didn't dis-
appoint making it to the
finals in the 114-pound
:'weight class before finally
being brought down.
Also coming in unbeaten
at 13-0 was junior Macy
Evans. The second-year


wrestler overcame Jasmine
Parra of Poinciana High
School to take the crown at
132.
Another standout for the
Indians was Savanna
Duffy, the pride of the 147-
pound class. After finish-
ing second at state a sea-
son earlier, the junior kept
her 10-0 record through-
out the year unblemished
with a convincing win in
the final match of the year.
In the end, Vero Beach
outdistanced its nearest,
opponent by over 100
points, the latest chapter
in the program's growth
into a state power.
3. Falcons volleyball
team soars to new heights
- Most 4-year-olds aren't
really capable of doing
much, busily getting ready
for their first days of
kindergarten.
The way the Jensen
Beach volleyball team
played this season, one
would think its opponents
were in preschool due to
its dominating style of
play. When it was all said
and done, the Falcons fin-
ished 26-5 and won a state
championship in just its
fourth year of existence.
Jensen Beach rolled
through most of the sea-
son with a No. 1 ranking in
Class 4A. The Falcons
faced it biggest task thus
far in an away match with
Merritt Island in the
Region 4-4A semifinal.
The team won the first
two games and then
cruised to a 25-20, 25-21,
20-25, 25-23 win, setting
up a contest with defend-
ing state champion Cardi-
nal Gibbons for the region-
al title.
Gibbons had eliminated
Jensen in the playoffs a
year earlier, but this time
the Falcons came away
with a scintillating 25-20,
23-25, 19-25, 25-22, 15-5
win to advance to the state
tournament.
Once again, the Falcons
would be pushed to the
limit, but came away with
another five-game win,
this time the victim being
Jacksonville -Bishop
Kenny.
After two naibiters, the
championship match
failed to live up to the*
hype, as Jensen Beach took
a 25-14, 25-16, 28-26 win
over Lemon Bay to bring


home the title.
With a solid base of
superstars and upcoming
players, the Falcons are
primed for a possible
repeat and a return to
these pages next year.
2. Vero Beach sticks it to
the competition again
- After losing in the state
semifinals in both 2004
and 2005, Vero Beach girls'
lacrosse coach Shannon
Dean revamped the team's
off-season program, log-
ging a lot of road miles by
playing 33 games in the
summer and fall.
The result was a 25-1-1
season and the first state
championship for Vero
Beach High School since
the boys' track team won
in 1990.
SDespite losing several
superstars to graduation,
Vero Beach returned two
key players in All-Ameri-
can goalie Marissa Higgins
as well as the state's lead-
ing scorer in Lacey Vat-
land. The team also fea-
tured three
up-and-coming, freshmen
in Jennifer Leffew, Krista
Grabher and Katie Chelle-
mi.
The season started with
a 17-2 rout of Pine Crest,
but the Indians were then
tested early with a
matchup against Lake
Brantley. Vero Beach
defeated the Patriots in the
title match a year earlier,
but this time Brantley
walked away with the win.
The loss proved to be a
motivating factor for Vero
Beach, as the team domi-
nated the competition for
most of the rest of the sea-
son, along the way aveng-
ing the only loss from the
previous season to Kent
Denver.
The team's run through
the playoffs was equally
impressive, as the Indians
outscored the opposition
86-24 in winning the dis-
trict and state champi-
onships once again.
The state title match fea-
tured Vero Beach and Lake
Brantley once again, only
this time the Patriots
proved to be no match for
the Indians, who came
away with a 19-10 win.
This season with the
return of its three fresh-
men phenoms, as well as a
solid feeder system in
place, a third consecutive


championship is not out of
the question.
1.Jensen Beach nets
hoops crown While the
accomplishment of the
Jensen Beach volleyball
team might have warrant-
ed the top spot, its own
school's basketball team
upstaged them by over
eight months, winning the
program's first state cham-
pionship and earning the
top spot in our count-
down.
The Lady Falcons
wrapped up an incredible
27-4 season with a Class 4A
title as a result of a 47-33
win over Dunbar. Senior
LaToya KyVg led the way
with 17 points and eight
steals, garnering her the
tournament's Most Valu-
able Player.
King and the Falcons
started the season off
strong, winning 11 in a row
before losing four of five
games, mostly to national-
ly ranked out-of-state
teams.
Being put through the
fire helped the Falcons, as
it defeated defending state
champion Astronaut the
team that ousted Jensen
Beach in the regional
finals a year earlier in
the regional quarterfinals.
.From there, Jensen
Beach handled Suncoast
45-32 to advance to the
school's first Final Four.
The squad had its hands
full in the state semifinal,
watching a 13-point lead
over Bishop Moore turn
into a Jensen Beach deficit
in the final minutes of the
game.
The Falcons would pull
out a 48-43 win to advance
to the title game where it
came away with crown.
Not surprisingly several
members of the team also
played on the volleyball
squad, including Benzio,
Leyna and Lexis Lloyd and
Nicole Teplitz, bringing a
discipline and dedication
to the hardwood.
So far, the 2007-08 sea-
son has mirrored the state
title run, as the' Falcons
have started 9-0, most
recently defeating Bayside
to claim the Space Coast
Christmas Invitational
Championship.
That's all for our count--
down. See you in the
sports pages in 2008.

JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

imagine how you would
look if you had spent
the past five years
without brushing your
hair, shaving, trimming
your nails or changing
your clothes.
Not a pretty sight for the
mind's eye.
Now imagine the same
for a golf course.
Since 2002, Binks Forest
Golf Club in Wellington sat
unattended and uncared
for. Then in February,
Aquila Property bought
the course and decided to
resurrect the once-proud
facility. What I witnessed
at the November re-grand
opening is a fantastic
reclamation of a beautiful
track.
Raising the course from
the flames of neglect was
not an easy task, but the
men and women of Aquila
and KemperSports man-
agement rolled up their
sleeves and turned what
had become 18 fields of
weeds, overgrown grass
and wild flowers into a
splendid golf course once
again.
The company's partners
live in Wellington and the
surrounding communities,
their children have gradu-
ated from and attend local
schools, and they've
watched for years, along
with the rest of us, as this
beautiful course fell into
disrepair.
The residents of Binks
Forest and the greater
Wellington community
deserve a first-class golf
course and club. With care
and resourcefulness
Aquila has accomplished
just that.
"We are confident that
we have the right team in
place to execute Binks
Forest's transformation


this is not the case here

and return to greatness,"
said Jordan C. Paul,
chairman of Aquila. "We
plan to bring a new and
improved jewel back to
Wellington."
Gene Bates, one of the
original architects, along
with Johnny Miller, was
charged with modernizing
the features and playabili-
ty of Binks Forest, while
preserving the integrity of
the course's original
design.
When the course initially
opened in 1990 it was
heralded for its rich
foliage, heavily forested
terrain and North Carolina
feel. When work to restore
and renovate the course
began, keeping those
traits, while tweaking the
course for the demands of
today's golfers, was atop
the list.
I never had the pleasure
of playing the course prior
to its closing. I knew that
the course was carved
from a forest of pines and
wound through a beautiful
development. I was
thinking "narrow," but
soon found that this-is not
the case here.
Homes are set well back
from the fairways and
greens. Drives that miss
the fairways are not
gobbled up by fences,
ponds or patios. Instead
you have to deal with
Beautiful trees to negoti-
ate your way toward the
hole or back to the fairway.
The course plays to a par
of 72 with four sets of tees.
Better players can tackle
the course from as far back
as 7,174 yards. The rest of
us have choices of 6,626,
5,999 or 5,268 yards.
Binks Forest begins with
a short par-4, but the
gloves come off when you
put the flag back in the
Sole. From here, golfers
'are tested with a difficult.

ends with the longest par-
4 that I have ever played.
After a delicious sand-
wich and a cold beverage
at the turn, your back nine
begins with the tightest
fairway on the course. A
long par-4 and a true risk-
reward par-5 follow. The
par-3 13th is a monster
that plays as long as 244
yards from the back tees.
My lone birdie came on
the 14th and one of my
playing partners had an
eagle putt on the par-5
17th.
The finishing hole
features the most difficult
approach shot on the
course. The green sits at
the bottom of a large hill
with the clubhouse behind
and water in front. Picking
the right club here is a
must.
Everyone in my group
was thrilled with the golf
course. There is plenty of
variety on the course. The
waste areas around the
tees and along several "
fairways provide great
contrast and frame the
holes nicely. We especially
loved the roll.that our
drives were getting on the
perfect fairways.
"This is one of the nicest
courses that I have played
in Florida," said Fernando
Barrios, one of my playing
partners. "Everything is
great. This is beautiful."
With the accolades I
heard from my group and
others at the course, I was
left to wonder why Binks
Forest Golf Club had been
left for so long. Then, I
realized it really doesn't
matter anymore. The club
and course are back and
the future looks bright.

gift we've been given,"
Sawtelle said.
"All the success the team
has had has come from hard
work, dedication and deter-
mination to make the entire
team, school and entire pro-
gram the best it could possi-,
blybe.
"I wish we continue to do
the best we possibly can. I
wish we continue to receive
well-rounded student ath-
letes that are educated as well
as athletically gifted.
Sawtelle's desire was not
just for his program, but
school wide as well.
"I wish for continued suc-
cess for Jensen Beach High
School," Sawtelle said. "I've
seen many schools in the
Treasure Coast area be built.
When a new school is built
there is an influx of the best
players in the area, so there is
an immediate short-lived
success.
"The long-term success
we've had (at Jensen Beach)
has amazed me the most. It
started with soccer, basketball
then volleyball. We've had two
state champion wrestlers.
"Our athletes are continu-
ing to grow and continuing to
produce elite programs."
Baseball coach George
Young has seen his share of
success as well, having led the
Sebastian River as well as the
Indian River Elite American
Legion teams to new heights.
This past season, Young's
Elite team which features
the best Indian River County
has to offer came within an
eyelash of a state champi-
onship, losing to Coral
Springs in the title game.
As for the Sharks, Young has
quietly built the program into
one of the state's best, sparked
by a tremendous run two sea-
sons ago that saw Sebastian
win its first-ever district title
and make it to the Region 4-
5A semifinals.
Young hopes 2008 is no dif-
ferent.
"You're always looking to
win a district title," Young
said. "That's abig goal.
"My biggest wish is to keep
the team healthy and to get
every kid that's a senior this
year onto college. Wins and
losses are important, but see-
ing a young man goes off to
college on a partial or full


scholarship to play baseball is
a big key to our success."
Young also wishes that the
steroid scandal that has
touched Major League Base-
ball will help the stars of
tomorrow understand that
performance-enhancing
drugs are not the answer.
"We try to teach them that
hard work and dedication
always pays off, but it's not
going to happen overnight,
Young said. "In steroids, kids
see an easy avenue to get a lot
faster and stronger.
"Putting a lot of time in, not
putting a needle in your arm
or leg is what pays off."
For first-year Fort Pierce
Westwood girls' basketball
coach Alvin Hamilton, his
wish is indeed a large one.
"A big girl," Hamilton said.
Hamilton's squad,
although successful, is a bit
undersized.
'All are starters are 5-foot-
5," Hamilton said. "At 113
pounds, (Jankendia) Felton is
our heaviest starter."
So far this season, what the
Panthers lack is size, it has
made up with heart and
determination. After winning
just eight games over the past
two seasons, Westwood is 7-7
with two of its recent losses
coming to state powers
Jensen Beach and Sebastian
River.
"I wish for us just to be
competitive," Hamilton said.
"We're doing much better.
We've gotten off to a real good
start.
"Our girls are getting confi-
dent. They know every night
they go on the floor they can
win.
Port St. Lucie Athletic
Director Danny Ninestine has
seen his teams accomplish a
lot during his tenure, most
recently he enjoyed the
Jaguars' run to the baseball
state championship game.
Ninestine's aspirations for
his athletes are lofty ones and
are generally shared by most
coaches and administrators.
"I wish for all our teams to
be successful and to get some
kids into college," Ninestine
said. "For all our teams to play
well and that nobody gets
hurt.
"It really doesn't if someone
gets 100 points in a game or
three touchdowns in game.
What matters is did they get a
good high school education
and get to the next level?"
