MARTIN COUNTY- At
one time, Stuart and Mar-
tin County appeared as a
dark and lonely place to
weary travelers looking
for rest.
Motorists heading
north from West Palm
Beach and Jupiter on
either 1-95 or Florida's
Turnpike would have had
to wait until Okeechobee
Road in Fort Pierce to find
a place to stop for the
night. ;
That changed perma-
nently on Dec. 22, with
the opening of the Holil-
day Inn Express on Lost
River Road, Just off 1-95


and south of Kanner
Highway. The 72-room
hotel was just the first of
several new hotels cur-
rently in the planning and
construction stages in
Martin County.
There's also another
new hotel going up in the
same area, which is des-
tined to change the South
Kanner Highway and 1-95
interchange and make the
main Stuart exit much
more hospitable in the
future. A Connecticut-
based developer, the
Waterford Group LLC
through its subsidiary
Stuart Lodgings LLC, has
already broken ground
for a 120-room Courtyard
By Marriott,


This new lodging, locat-
ed on Lost River Road
north .of Kanner Highway,
is going up next to the
Cracker Barrel restaurant
and is slatedfor .opening
this fall. A memibef bf Stu-

man, said that the com-
pany has been looking at
growth opportunities
across. the country and
gradually expanding into
Florida.

bility," he said. "We feel

is an excellent idea," she said.
"I think if this takes traffic off
our interstates and U.S. 1,
then it's a good thing."
The executive director of
Palm Tran, Chuck Cohen, said
the state's grant should cover
the operating costs of the new
route for the next three years.
It will also fill in a gap in Palm
Tran's service area.
"I think from Palm 'ran's
perspective, this will provide
two things," he said. "It will
provide transportation from
Stuart to Jupiter, and from
Jupiter on to North Palm
Beach and West Palm Beach."
Mr. Cohen emphasized that
Palm Tran worked hand-in-
hand with the Martin Metro-
politan Planning Organiza-
tion to help win the FDOT
grant. The MPO administra-
tor, Ann Perrotta, said th-b
groups have been cooperat-
ing for about two year to
secure the grant.
To prove the need or the
service, the MPO compiled
data derived from hde U.S.
Census in 2000.
"The countt-to-county
commuting patterns
between 1990 and 2000
showed that tAe number of
commuting workers
between Martin and Palm
Beach counties was almost
10,000, which was an approx-
imate 33 percent increase in
this 10 l ar period," she said.
The chairman of the MPO
board, County Compmission-
er Michael DiTerlizzi, said
thai the county has long

coming up with the idea.
"One of my clients lives at
Harbor Ridge, and she knew
that we had booked Andrea
here (in Broward County)
last year," she said. "She
asked if we couldn't help
put something together
locally, and so we did."
Mr. Berti is' a native of
Ankona, Italy, "which is also
the birthplace of Franco
Corelli," the late Italian
tenor he says both he and
Mr. Bocelli idolized. Only a
select group of U.S residents
have ever heard Mr. Berti
sing, since he's only sung for
private performances in Los
Angeles, New York, and now,
South Florida. His favorite
opera to sing, he added, is
Otello.
"I have performed it many
times," he said. "The vocal
structure of the opera is very
close to my range. My voice
.is best for a verisimo opera."
Mr. Berti emphasized that
his daughter Veronica is his
best voice critic, having
grown up listening to him
practice, around the house.
"She knew all the baritone
and tenor parts, not the
soprano or alto like you
would think," he said with a
chuckle.
Mr. Porter said that only


300 tickets were put on sale
due to the limited size of the
clubhouse, all of which sold
within 15 minutes. He
would have arranged .for
two performances, but Mr.
Berti had prior commit-
ments in Italy, he explained.
"I am very interested in
booking Mr. Berti in other
venues," he said. "We will
have him return in June and
December if possible."
Mr. Porter emphasized
that the performance was
made possible by area
opera fans who helped
underwrite the cost. In
order to bring such per-
formers to the Treasure
Coast for a public perform-
ance, he said he would need
a much larger venue.
"I am open to any propos-
al that could come my way,"
he said.
Mr. Porter is himself an
accomplished .......performer,
having played, dr ums for
Sammy Davis Jr. in the 1970s
and '80s. He ,fnow works to
bring such 'stars to South
Florida, where 'many per-
form at the Hard Rock Caf6
in Hollywood.

emphasized.
The fare structure has yet to
be determined for the new
Stuart bus route, but would
probably be figured on the
distance.
"Typically, express services
like that charge a premium,"
he said.

which will utilize a smaller

United Way honors,

challenges top donors


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

With the help of lead vol-
unteers Denny and Wendy
Hudson, the United Way of
Martin County is finding cre-
ative and generous ways to
help donors step up their
giving.
The Hudsons are co-chairs
of the local Alexis de Toc-
queville Society, which rec-
ognizes the most generous
United Way donors for their
philanthropy.
The couple have demon-
strated their commitment to
United Way by establishing
the "Chairman's Challenge."
For the second year in a row,
the Hudsons will personally
match any increase in giving
by Tocqueville members.
Last year, that match
amounted to more than
$22,000. So far this campaign
year, Alexis de Tocqueville
gifts are up more than
$38,000, which represents
current donor increases of
$20,000 as well as attracting a
new donor at $18,000. The
campaign continues through
June.
'"As a banker, I like to look
at financials and see how
leaders are managing their
organizations," said Mr.
Hudson, chairman and CEO


of Seacoast National Bank.
He sees United Way as being
accountable and responsive
to current, local needs.
"United Way's level of
accountability is enhanced
by the local allocations pan-
els made up of volunteers
who review requests for
funding each year."
Seacoast and its employ-
ees are strong supporters of
the United Way campaign,
and the bank leads by exam-
ple and in challenging oth-
ers.
This year, in observation of
United Way's 35th anniver-
sary in Martin County, Sea-
coast has created a $45,000
Leadership Challenge Fund
to encourage people to step
up to new levels of giving in
the Keel Club (for donors of
$1,000 or more) and the Toc-
queville Society (for donors
of $10,000 or more).
If a donor pledges to step
to a higher level of support
over the next three years, the
Seacoast Leadership Chal-
lenge Fund will match the
difference between this
year's contribution and the
new level of recognition.

County, please call (772) 288-

REVIEW

Fight brewing over Jupiter Island beach
Martin County Commissioner Lee Weberman is ready to
challenge the Town of Jupiter Island over new parking regu-
lations posted on the county-run beach near Hobe Sound.
About two weeks ago, the town erected signs limiting
beach access to a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour
after sunset. Since there is already a county ordinance on the
books permitting 24-hour access to the county's beaches
and boat ramps, CommissionerWeberman says the govern-
ing body of the exclusive South Martin County Community
has overstepped its bounds.
Jupiter Island Town Manager Joe Connolly issued a pre-
pared statement to the press, saying that the Town Commis-
sion created the new ordinance at the request of local citi-
zens desiring added safety measures. The commission had
the authority, the statement added, through "state-allow-
able home-rule powers" to regulate behavior on the beach.
Martin County Parks and Recreation Director Richard
Blankenship said he would study the issue and report his
findings to the county attorney's office.
At press time, Commissioner Weberman planned to ask
his fellow commissioners to consider an injunction against
the town during their regular meeting on Jan. 8.

Area man freed after serving 18 years for
attempted poisoning
Martin County Circuit Judge Larry Schack set Port St.
Lucie resident Kenneth Gravely free on his birthday Jan. 3,
18 years after he was charged and convicted of lacing his ex-
girlfriend's soft drink with insecticide.
Mr. Gravely, now 36, attributed his actions to alcohol and
heartbreak over the termination of his relationship with Jen-
nifer Shawfield.
Originally sentenced to 22 years and 10 years of probation
for attempted murder, Mr. Gravely was released early but re-
arrested for probation violation in 2005, adding 17 more
years to his sentence. That sentence has been modified for
time-served, with attorney Arthur Brandt arguing for the
termination of his probation and Assistant State Attorney
Linda Baldree objecting.

Green River Parkways still suffering from
drainage problems

It's been three years since the completion of the Green
River Parkway connecting Walton Road with Jensen Beach
Boulevard, but the county is still refusing to take over main-
tenance of the roadway due to ongoing drainage issues.
Martin County's roadway design and construction
administrator Paul Bangs said the developer must fix the
drainage problem so the county, doesn't have to maintain
and repair a defective road. During heavy rainstorms, por-
tions of the parkway flood, and part of a bike path and side-
walk washed away last October.
Mr. Banks said the developer originally underestimated
the area's water table elevation, and the hard soil around the
roadway keeps the water from running off quickly.
The developer did some drainage work and some other
repairs last year, but Mr. Banks says they were insufficient to
solve the problem.
The Martin County Commission approved a new route
for the southern end of the parkway after lengthy debate on
Dec. 18, with commissioners Sarah Heard and SusanValliere
dissenting. Construction could begin by this summer on the
$13.4 million project, with completion slated for 2009

appealing brand for that
market."
Mr. Wolman credited the'
Business Development
,Board of Martin County
and its former executive
director, Ted Astolfi, with,
convincing the Waterford
Group that Martin County
was a good fit for the com-
pany. He said that the
company was looking into
the possibility of opening
other new hotels in the'
area as well.
The Holiday Inn Express
and the Courtyard By Mar-
riott may not be alone on
Lost River Road, which is
attractive to businesses
due to the high volume of
traffic passing by on the
adjacent interstate. The
local developer who sold
the property to the Holi-
day Inn Express, Ralph
Parks of the Parks Compa-
ny, Inc., of Stuart,, also
holds title to the adjacent
five-acre parcel. He. said
he's currently in negotia-
tions with a. developer
interested in putting a
100-room hotel on that
site as well.
A pair of brothers, Tom
and Mike Ryan, have also
been. trying to develop a
hotel project on Lost River
Road to take advantage of
the recreational activities
afforded by the nearby
waterway. They've run
into some environmental
roadblocks with their 2.4-
acre parcel, however, due
to the county's 75-foot
buffer requirement for
wetlands, which would
affect a gopd portion of
the land' 'they wish to
develop.
The counrity's Growth
Management Director,
Nikki Von Vonno, said the
current hotel develop-
ment in Martin County is
unprecedented.
"I've been with the
county since 1988,and this


is the first hotel develop-
ment, outside of the Sub-
urban Lodge five years
ago, that I have seen," she-
said.
Mr. Parks; emphasized
that developing is not easy
in Martin County, which
he said takes longer than a
similar project would take
in neighboring St. Lucie
County. He compared the
anti-growth attitude to the
old U.S. Navy slogan, 'Hey
Mac, I'm aboard, pull up
the ladder.'
"It's tough to develop
here... the procedures and
everything," 'he said. "If
you're thin-skinned, you
just can't do it."
Another local developer,
Jerry Smith, said he's expe-
rienced those kind of
problems first-hand while
trying to build a hotel at
the intersection of County
Road 714 and the Turn-
pike. He said he first
began the process in 2004
and emphasized that the
delays have already cost
him his hotel franchise.
"They told us in the
beginning that it would
take 18 months," he said.
"After that time was up, I
put $55,000 down on a
hotel franchise,, but I lost
that because it had to be
started by 2006."
Mr. Smith said he's in
negotiations with another
hotel developer for the 11-
acre site and is still trying
to get his final site plan
approved.
"I think it was an inordi-
nate amount of time that
it's taken," he said. "There
are some people on the
county commission,
though, who understand
the development is need-
ed."
In spite of the lengthy
process many developers
say they face for projects
in Martin County, hotel
developments are still
forging ahead throughout
the county. A new Hamp-
ton Inn is currently rising
on the' east side of U.S. 1
just north of the Roosevelt
Bridge in Stuart, and
Huizenga Holdings is now
in the permitting stage for
a new hotel on Hutchin-

tin County, said more
hotels on the island are
needed to capture more of
the tourism market.
"I think it's important
because we're already
behind the eight ball," she
said. "Any time that busi-
nesses come into town,
we're short on facilities. I'd
like to see more on the
water to capitalize, oh our
water destination."
According to both Ms.
Von Vonno and Kevin
Freeman, the develop-
ment director for the City
of Stuart, many other proj-
ects have begun the per-
mitting process but failed
to proceed for one reason
or another.
"We saw, six to eight
months ago, a whole raft
of development proposals
that involved hotels as
part of the projects, but
that time has passed," he
said. "Now what we're see-
ing are projects built
around residences for sen-
ior citizen care."
Although not necessari-
ly against new hotel devel-
opment, Commissioner
Michael DiTerlizzi did
express concern about the
possible effects on the
county's current hotel
properties.
"I think we need to 'be,
very cautious not to nega-
tively impact our existing
businesses and 'ensure
that the new projects are
well balanced," he said.

Ask The Jeweler

Is IT MINE?
I buy lots of jewelry from
the public. To do so I must
fill out a police report when
purchasing jewelry from
the public. We must ask
whose ring (or whatever
they are selling) it is. We;do
this to determine whether it
is their property to sell or if
they have authorization to
sell it. And I frequently
hear something that. djs
turbs me. One of theinltisi
from ladies that have been
engaged but have since
broken off the engage-
ment. They have given the
engagement ring back.Thel
second thing I hear is that
the man brings the ring in
to sell and he tells me he
"took" it back.
Well here's the real deal.
If you receive an engage-
ment ring, it's yours. VYo
can wear it, sell it, or do
anything you want with it.
It's yours. If he "takes" it
back without your authori-
zation, it.is ;still yqars' nd'
you can'a take atever
legal means you like to .-get
it back. Therefore ifhetries
to sell it to rme or any other
jeweler it is not his to sell.
This is straight from the
detective that is our repre-
sentative from the sheriff's
office.

Sometimes nice guys finish at the head


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

m.
L eo Durocher is often
quoted as saying, "Nice
guys don't win ball-
ganles." (He later denied
ever saying this.)
But this expression is
quoted often to justify
aggressive, rude, exploitive
and unethical business
practices. A surprisingly
large number of otherwise
intelligent business leaders
actually believe this saying.
This is especially prevalent
in the retail car business.
I'm a member of an
organization called the "20
Group." This group of car


dealers (about 20, hence the
name) meets for three days
three times a year to
compare business practices
and financial results. Our
members are from all over
the U.S. The majority of the
members think my way of
doing business is not smart.
Most Florida dealers I
know don't understand or
agree with my business
practices.
This column is not a
forum to celebrate my
accomplishments or to try
to sell you a Toyota, but to
share my knowledge with
you about how to buy your
next car or have your car
serviced without being
taken advantage of.
With that said, I tell you
that my Toyota dealership
sold more new Toyotas last
year than the other Toyota
dealerships in Palm Beach
County, one in West Palm
Beach and one in Delray
Beach.
Of course I'm proud of


EARL STEWART
On Cars


that accomplishment, 33
years in the making. After
all, my dealership is in Lake
Park, which many of you
may not have even heard of.
I always mention North
Palm Beach in mentioning
my dealership's location
because we are on the city
limit of Lake Park and North
Palm Beach. Our population
in Lake Park in northern
county is much less than


that of West Palm Beach and
Delray. We just aren't
"supposed to" sell more cars
than the dealers from the
"big city."
Was it Will Rogers who
said, "It ain't braggin' if it's
so"? I'm not sure I agree
with that; and I always feel a
little funny about tooting
my own horn. The reason
I'm writing about my
dealership's accomplish-
ment is not because of what
we did, but how we did it.
We were able to accom-
plish this truly amazing feat
by being "nice guys" and we
did in spite of what Leo
Durocher may or may not
have said. What most other
car dealers can't understand
is how we can be so suc-
cessful without advertising
the way they do.
By that I mean we virtual-
ly never advertise cars,
prices, special sale events
(once last year we did
advertise a sale on new

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

Failing to yield


This rant is to the senior couple that failed to yield at the
signal at Mapp Road, at the intersection of Murphy and
Matheson near the church. Vehicles turning left must yield.
to through traffic when the signal turns green. If you don't
know that, you shouldn't be driving. If you deliberately
failed to yield to beat me through the intersection, you will
eventually be involved in a accident, and possibly be
injured or killed Mt life and my motorcycle are more valu-
able than your car and I will continue to give you the right

More from the county

Within the last 45 days, two Martin County employees
have had personal tragedies, one young man working for
the engineering department died in his company vehicle
due to a medical condition. Another lost his home and per-
sonal belongings due to a fire at his trailer. He worked for
the parks department. There has been no organized effort
to help these families. It has been covered in the media, but
nothing has been done in the company to offer any assis-
tance. There has only been an email sent to a few people.
Don't you think the powers at be should do more during this
time of year? I don't think "character counts" at all in Martin
County.

Social Security benefits taking long

I am a 58:year-old white male that was diagnosed with
polycystic kidney disease in 2003. I was told at that time I
would not get better and should slow down working. "Well"
at that time I owned my own small business and was a one-
man show. In 2006 the doctors were right. By that time
because of my disease I couldn't regulate my blood pres-
sure, the cysts on my kidneys had grown to a point where I
gained 45 pounds and I had a stroke, which left me with
partial use of my right leg and blind in my left eye. After a
year of treatment and eye surgery in 2007; my eye did not
get better.
In 2006, as I said, my doctors made me stop working. I
had to sell my business and quit. I have a family doctor, a
kidney doctor and eye specialist and I had to hire a lawyer,
which will also costs me $5,000 out of my pocket. More
money than necessary is being spent to straighten this situ-
ation out. All have been in charge of filling out a mountain
of paper work and writing letters explaining my physical
condition to Social Security trying to get my disability
approved. I have had two denials so farahdn my case, ssit-
ting on some judge's desk inMiami waiting for a decision tdo
be made. -.
I belong to AARP and in their Novefmber2007, Volume 48
edition, the headlines on the front cover reads, "They Died
Waiting, Lost in Social Security Hell." The article is on Page
10. I personally have talked to people who have waited 4
years or more to get their benefits.
The ironic thing is that when you get it, it is retroactive
from when you apply. Some people have gotten $49,000 in
one lump sum. The problem is that by that time you have
lost your house, your car and everything else you worked all
your life for. Creditors, utilities, mortgage companies, gro-
cery stores don't let you live using IOUs until your money
shows up.
The real problem with all of this is, as I said, I am 58 years
old; I have been working since I was 13. I1 have paid in to
Social Security since I was 16 years old. I am not asking for
welfare or a free handout. "I want what's mine"! I paid in to
Social Security all of my life. As I just said, I am not asking
for a free handout, I only want what belongs to me and what
I have coming to me.
I am not an unwed mother on welfare with three kids who
do not know who their fathers are (notice I used plural for
fathers). In most cases there is more than one not paying,'
any support for their children.
I am not an illegal immigrant using the system to get free
medical benefits.
I am a citizen of the United States who has been paying
my share of taxes, on time all my life, to help cover the
above. There are probably plenty more examples available,
bult these are the two that most citizens of the United States
are most familiar with at the present time.
I am mad and for good reason, I want my money before I
get kicked out of my house lose my car and can't buy gro-
'ceries for me and my family.
Could you live for two to four years with no income or
insurance for health care and prescriptions?
I have been spending $790 a month for health insurance
alone, which will soon end because it will be unaffordable
in the near future under these circumstances. Knowing that
the only thing I have to look forward to are dialysis and a
kidney transplant where is all that money going to come
from?
I Read the AARP article. Let's start worrying about our own
'United State citizens and taking care of us first.

Response to Giving children
drugs is not a solution

My daughter is twelve years old, with ADHD. She was ten


'2007


months old when my mother noticed something different
about her. She would not play with any toy for more than a
few moments. I didn't know any different because she was
my first child. As the years went by our troubles grew more
intense. When she entered a local private school, she was
almost expelled six weeks before the end of kindergarten.
The next year she went to public school and we continued
to have problems. She could not be tested until she was six. I
finally succumbed to testing halfway through the first grade.
To my embarrassment, she tested proof positive for'
ADHD thanks to her teachers, her father, the doctor's obser-
vation and me. She began taking Concerta, which is very
close to Ritalin. Something amazing happened; she started
learning.
Through the years, I have been criticized for my daugh-
ter's disability. I once had a psychology professor invite me
to be a volunteer and speak in his class.
Ih front of the class he proceeded to tell me that my child's
ADHD was because I was a mother who didn't pay attention
to my child, not that I had a child who lacked the ability to
pay attention.
Enraged, I sat up in my seat and politely defended my
daughter and myself. We read books as often as she would
sit through them. We learned how to add and subtract using
peas and carrots at the dinner table. My focus had to- .make
up for her lack of.
There,is a Web site. called DailyStrength.org, and anyone
who would like to get the advice of other people going
through the same struggles as I have, can go there for some
real support and encouragement, not the ignorant ranting
of some uneducated citizen who has never walked in the
shoes of a parent or child with ADHD. Please go learn before
you spurn. To all parents with ADHD children, be proud of
your children.
They.are unique and if the medication works, ADHD chil-
dren have'better self-esteem and have been proven to grow.
into better adults when .they succeed! But that would only
be: common sense. .....

Seen Vs. Saw

What ever happened to the word saw? Every day on the
news or in-public you hear most people saying, I seen it
happen," or "I seen the guy who did it run off." Where did all
these people learn the English language? Surely there is
something lacking in the education system and also at
home.
I saw this just lately on the news where a person I believed
was educated used the word "seen" describing something
he saw. May the word saw rest in peace. It is dead.

Fireworks should be outlawed

If I were going to attack the United States, it would be on
New Year's Eve when everyone is drunk and setting off fire-
works. Nobody would notice until the next day. We have
always set off fireworks. Prior to that we just fired our guns
in the air like many third-world regimes do today. It has
been addressed how dangerous it is to fire guns into the air.
When I was a child I like fireworks. Now, as an adult, I carry a
gun everyday of my life. Fireworks are illegal except for pro-
fessionals. Where does all the gunpowder go after the fire-
works? It's time that fireworks are outlawed. Let's' find a
more mature way to celebrate New Year's, Christmas, July
Forth, andWayne Huizenger's birthday.

Waterboarding is not torture

As an American I have one thing to sat; why do we have to
have a Congressional investigation into CIA tapes of torture
that were destroyed?
Are the senators stupid?
Don't they realize that we are under attack?
People keep looking for a reason to prosecute someone
that is doing their job. Waterboarding is not torture. It is a
method of getting information from someone that is willing
to kill us. We are in a war. This country is turning into a


.2008


third-world country.

Thank you to a stranger

Last week I was taking my son to a doctor's appointment
we were both stressed out and in tears. I didn't have any
money, not even the two dollars to pay the co-payment. A
woman in the office insisted I take $10.1 I was able to pay the
co-payment and also enjoy a Christmas dinner with the
money I had left over. This meant the world to me. I can
never express how much this meant to my son and me. I
want to thank this lady form the bottom of my heart. I have
since passed it forward.

Who tests plastics in small appliances?

How can I tell if the plastics used in a hot pot or coffee pot
are OK?
I first had a hot pot from China that smelled so strongly of
petroleum or plastics that I had to throw it out. The taste of
the tea that I made from the hot water gagged me.
Now I just bought a Cook coffee pot (Not JCPenny's Cooks
Brand). I tried to use the pot for tea, and again, the plastic
odor was strong, even after I ran white vinegar through it
several times, and tried to use it.
Does anyone test the plastics in these small kitchen appli-
ances? I understand that some plastics, like (those) used for
the milk jug are safe. There are high-heat plastics used for
pan handles that are fine, but there are plastics that give off
toxins with heat and this concerns me.

Another request to buy American

The writer of "Eyen Pet Toys are "Made in China" is "right-
on." Our lawmakers have turned this country inside-out
and upside-down. They have taken away what we Ameri-
cans call democracy and given rights to foreigners that they
have not earned, fought or shed blood for.
It's not the politicians, but our great military, that's kept
this country free. Most all our retail is made in China, Egypt,
Taiwan, Bangladesh, etc. Foreign manufacturers have fac-
tories here, giving Americans jobs, but consider the conse-
quences if they decide to "fold up" here. These people own
this country. It will take an organized boycott (together-
pess) in not buying these products, even if it means going
without for a while. By the way, 90 percent of our homeless
are Veterans. It's the shame of this country. The largest
organization in this country, The American Legion, VFW
etc., are doing their best, by having Poppy Day, spaghetti
dinners, pancake breakfasts, and most importantly, making
up little baskets of soap, toothpaste, after shave and candy
at Christmas for our hospitalized veterans.
We are "taking" this, screaming silently, some not scream-
ing at all. Most young people today don't care, can't read,
and wear caps in restaurants (sideways). Probably sitting
with jeans and jackets made in Bangladesh. Read the labels
on Levi Strauss jeans orWal-Mart. "Made in Egypt," "Made
in Bangaladesh". Most all of them flawed, mostly pockets
and stitching on leg hems "pulled" so tightly they look like
they are "gathered."
If one out of one hundred persons read labels and didn't
buy merchandise not made in America it would put a big
dent in this political import business.

Gender is not a qualification for office

(This is a) reply to "Women should vote for a woman for
president."
While your rant is well-intended, it is ill-conceived and
illogical.
Whoever people feel is most qualified is who they should
vote for. The physical possession of a vagina, a cervix, a
uterus, and/or ovaries is not a qualification for government
office; only potential to bear children.
Just thought I'd clear that up.

From page A6

Ranter issues challenge
regarding Hillary Clinton

I respect that the age and wisdom of the 87-year-old
woman brings much to the table. Though this is not 1920; it
is not 1975. There are many powerful women in the work
force, although an embarrassment, the Speaker of the
House is a woman.
We have many well-qualified women speaking for us and
our families. To propose "Vote for a woman" because we are
women is ridiculous. It is as ridiculous as the quota system
in our society today.
The (politically correct) culture does not want the most
qualified. They want a body that is of the right gender, color
or religious affiliation for the moment. How truly sad.
As Hillary Clinton is the only woman running, the reader
was obviously speaking about her, so let's really look at her.
She is no Margaret Thatcher. Margaret would never have
tolerated a husband like Bill. She never would have attacked
all the women (who) brought his behavior to light. Hillary
does not answer questions. She has multiple positions on
the same subject; she is the most negative person in the gov-
ernment today.
What accomplishments does this woman have? Advocate
for children? What mother do you know (who) is not an
advocate for children. She uses that as an accomplishment,
but it is an empty bin. She uses talking points and talks
handily about Bill vs. Bush, but out of 150 million women in
America, this is the best you can up with?
If you truly can come up with three, just three accom-
plishments that she has achieved to make this country bet-
ter, do. it, convince me. Her talking points from the poor
without insurance to the solvency of Social Security have
been lies. What has she ever told the truth about?

Guns in schools can help save children

The recent shooting of an armed killer at the New Life
Church in Colorado sends a clear message to the Ameri-
can people. Places where citizens are allowed to carry
weapons are the safest places on Earth.'
(The Rev.) Brady Boyd, (pastor) of New Life Church in
Colorado, is a hero. Instead of declaring his church a gun-
free zone he allowed armed volunteers to come to church
with their weapons. In doing so, he' saved many lives and
countless wounded.
We only have to remember the massacre at Virginia Tech
(five faculty and 27 students killed) to realize the absolute
insanity of.; declaring schools or anywhere else people
gather gun-free zones.
The armed volunteers at the Colorado church are exam-
,, pes of the militia our nation's Founding Fathers wrote
ahout in the, Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.
This amendment once and for all established the right of
,j., Scitizens to own and carry weapons for'self-defense.
Armed citizens are needed everywhere to immediately
stop rogue killers before they can hurt people.
This,message is especially urgentito our state legislators.
They have made our schools gun-free zones that attract
killers because they are full of helpless children. Our state
goyermentshould change the. laws nd drop these fool-
ish restrictions on a citizen's constitutional right to carry
weapons for self protection.
School boards across the state should provide appropri-
,,,ate leadership by establishing a plan for teacher handgun
training (on a voluntary basis) and for in-school safe stor-
age of weapons. Let us be prepared sQ that the next killer
,:t (.;that walks into a .Florida school enters a protected place.
'!:;ihstead of ashooting'gallery full of helpless people.
We owe.this to our children.


Poses questions to ask presidential hopefuls

Shortly, we will be inundated with politicians as the Flori-
da Primary is Jan. 29, and we need to ask intelligent ques-
tions of those who would lead us.
The United States funds the World Bank with billions in
cold cash. We are the largest contributor. The World Bank is
also corrupt with millions, being siphoned off by individuals
each year (see
www.whistleblower.org/content/press_detail.cfm?press_id
=408). The corruption is so pervasive that employees are
emboldened to attack and destroy the careers of the internal
affairs personnel that investigate and prosecute corrupt
employees. In your first 100 days as president, how will you
fix this?
The United Nations was established at the end of World
War II to demonstrate to underdeveloped countries and to
despots around the world that democracy would prevail
and that the free people of the world would fight to remain
free and free the oppressed.
The UN is now controlled by those Third World despots,
and the corruption and spending is out of control. Recently,
UN personnel flew to a resort in Bali wasting tens of thou-
sands of gallons of fuel to sit on the beach and discuss glob-
al warming, blame the United States and demand a $5,000
carbon tax on babies born in Western nations.
With 120-plus nations constituting the UN, the Unites
States pays 22 percent of the UNs total budget, yet we have
no accountability nor any say in how the money is spent.
(This number is attributed to Sen. Norm Coleman, when he
was to introduce a U.N. reform bill in June 2005, according
to CNN.com).
Additionally, the more we cede responsibility and power
to the UN, the further the people are from those who would
govern us. Why do you support this?
*.Is President Bush's strategy of spreading Democracy
throughout the Arab Muslim world actually a smart move as
world demographics will ultimately shift giving Arab Mus-
lims a population advantage over the Eurasian continents
and de facto control over a large stockpile of nuclear
weapons in Russia?
Define leadership and detail how you have fit into and
lived up to your definition.
These are some of the questions we need to be asking
presidential hopefuls.
We do not need to know if Mike Huckabee reads his Bible
everyday or what flavor of free ice cream Hillary is going to
pass out when she is elected.

Thanks to those who care enough
to help others

For all those in the community who take the time to
donate money, toys, clothes and food to the many charities
and groups, I want to say, "Thank you" on behalf of all of us
who have benefited from your kindness.
Sometimes something very bad can bring something very
good.
This was a year that my family will never forget.
Due to a terrible personal event, my children lost their
father, we lost our home, our income was reduced by 75 per-
cent and all concept of life as we knew it disappeared. I was
terrified of what was ahead for me and my children, but we
learned about kindness and charity. An acquaintance took
us in for two and a half months, and we became best friends.
The people at my work supported me during my many
court visits and crazy schedules.
'"Angels" in our neighborhood provided a Thanksgiving
dinner and Christmas presents for my children.
Friends and people I hardly knew provided financial
assistance when they knew I was too "proud" to ask, but it
really helped us out.
My children and I have.learned a lot about charity and
goodwill.
Thank you.


Medication helped child with ADHD

This is in response to the person who says that giving chil-
dren ADHD drugs is not a solution for an ADHD child.
It is obvious to me that this person has not had a child
with ADHD. When our daughter first started school; the
teacher told us that she would not sit down and would roam
around the classroom. She (would) not complete her work.
She was inattentive.
We were very distraught, and tried to work with her con-
stantly to address these and homework issues. We would be
up sometimes until 9 p.m. doing simple homework prob-
lems with her. By the time our daughter was in second
grade, both the teacher and the guidance counselor sug-
gested I go to a class on ADHD given by our local communi-
ty college. There I met many people who have ADHD and
also those with children who have (it). I met someone who
was having (his/her) child tested at a clinic. We went to
Columbia Clinic in Royal Palm Beach. Our daughter was
evaluated by two social workers, a psychologist and a psy-
chiatrist at separate visits over a period of time.
After that, they got together to discuss their findings. Our
daughter was diagnosed with ADHD. After this diagnosis
and the start of treatment with ADHD medication, we saw
an immediate difference in our child's attention, and her
grades improved.
I ask this person who doesn't like children taking medica-
tion, "Do you have any idea what it feels like to have a child
with ADHD?"
. It makes you feel like you are doing something wrong. Our
life was always in turmoil until we started our daughter on
the medication.
My husband and I have always tried to be good parents to
our children, but one child can disrupt everything. Now, my
child is 18 years old. When she doesn't take her medication, I
can tell by noon. Children with ADHD do not grow out of it.
They learn to adapt and control it, usually with medication.
And it's hereditary. My husband's older daughter also has
it.
What I wish is that parents can find clinics like the one I
went to. That's the best way I have seen to diagnose a child
with ADHD. Left untreated, ADHD causes many students to
fail and be labeled as troubled or disruptive. I applaud the
many teachers and guidance counselors who are aware of
the problem and help parents deal with these decisions by
observing a child's behavior and recommending solutions.

More information offered on Ritalin

You recently printed my rant against the drugging of chil-
dren. Thank you.
It was interesting that your response was to publish infor-
mation and Web sites of people and organizations who
make money from the use of Ritalin. Of course, none of that
refutes the fact there are no objective medical tests to diag-
nose ADHD nor to indicate that it is a good idea to drug kids
to make them sit still.
. I assume you published those Web sites as part of your
checking facts. You might want to check "Methylphenidate:
A Background Paper," U.S. Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion, October 1995, p. 16 (www.usdoj.gov/dea/pubs/press-
rel/pr951020.htm). This reference says Ritalin could lead to
addictions and that "psychotic episodes, violent behavior
and bizarre mannerisms had been reported" with its use.
"Suicide is the major complication of withdrawal from
Ritalin and similar drugs." This can be found in the psychia-
trists' own DSM-III-R, pages 136, 175. This book grows regu-
larly as the psychiatric community votes into existence new
"mental disorders."
What are similar drugs? Adderall, Benzedrin, Concerta,
Daytrana, Desoxyn, Dexedrine, Sparlon and there are more.
As a final reference, on Sept. 13, 2005, the Oregon Health &
Science University, evidenced-based practice center pub-
lished the findings of its review of 2,287 studies virtually

Make the move toward



exercise one step at time


I think that almost
everybody, every year,
resolves to exercise more.
We know we should. We
know it's good for us for a
lot for reasons. We know
we'll look and feel better
and our clothes will fit
better. If that's true, why
aren't we all exercisin' fools?
It may be that getting
started is one part of the
equation. Maintaining
enthusiasm for it is another
part. Also, you have to be
willing to work on both
ends to make exercise work.
for you.
This year, instead of
writing about choosing a
fitness center, which is not
an option for many because
of cost, distance or shyness,
I thought I'd write about
"The Power of One." That's
my way of suggesting
making one change in your
routine at a time. Trying to
train for a marathon when
you haven't run before is a
prescription for failure.
The first thing to do is,
examine your day and see
where you can incorporate
exercise. Can you walk to
work or to the store instead
of driving? Can you park in a
distant space and walk to
your destination, instead of
parking in the closest space?
If you're going to the mall,
can you make several trips
around, just walking, before


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

you start to window shop?
Little steps like that get you
moving and get your mind
into an exercise mode.
Many people think they
have to invest in expensive
memberships, clothes or
equipment in order to
exercise. It's not true. You
can get pedometers for less.
than $10. A pedometer
measures the number of
steps you take. An ideal goal
is 10,000 a day. Spend a day
and see how far you actually
do go. If it's 2,000, aim to
increase that by about 500
the first week. Try to add
some each week. A
pedometer is a reminder to
keep moving; you'll be
surprised at how quickly the
numbers add up.
I am a big fan of exercise
videos. They can be used at


any time, they have music
to keep you interested, you
can exercise despite rainy or
-hot weather and there are
many to choose from.
You can build up an
exercise library over time.
Collage Videos sells many of
them and you can even
preview some at www.col-
lagevideo.com. If you're
Internet savvy, you can find
some on eBay.
I like Leslie Sansone, a
fitness expert whose
programs are built on
simple walking steps and
Denise Austin, who has
some beginner tapes, as
well. Choose something you
can do, because the best
program in the world won't
work if it's too difficult and
you don't like it. You can
even find specialized ones,
such as kickboxing, country
dancing, salsa, even belly
dancing. In your own home,
who cares how silly you
think you look? Let yourself
enjoy the music and the
movement.
In the last year, I have
really tried to work exercise
into every day. I find that
dance videos are a fun way
to get cardiovascular
exercise, benefiting the
heart and lungs. Some days,
I do exercises holding light
weights, concentrating on
the upper body and spine,
to help fend off osteoporo-


sis. Other days, I'll combine
the two, or do some lower-
body exercises. I try to mix
and match my workouts.
because I tend to get bored;
if I vary the routines, my
muscles have to "think"
about what comes next. I
will be the first one to say
that exercise is not easy;, but
I feel better each day that I
do work out, both physically
and emotionally.
If you can, buddy-up to
motivate yourself and a
friend. Go for a walk with a
friend to have someone to
talk to and help keep you
motivated. Walk with the
kids, to encourage good
habits for life. If you have a
dog, make it exercise for
both of you.
Again, strive to go a little
farther or a little faster over
time, or to add light hand-
held weight to make it more
challenging.
Of course, before you
begin any exercise program,
talk to your doctor, to make
certain that it is appropriate
for you. If you get the
greenlight, get moving!

SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
Shen it comes to
Flsending attach-
IWV ments through
e-mail, most people have
one thing in mind:
pictures.
If you think about it,
sending other file types
through e-mail can be
one of the most useful
abilities that the Internet.
affords.
Picture this: You're
working on a file at the
office, maybe a Word or
Excel document. A
colleague in another part
of town or another office
needs to see the file.
Some people will print
out the file and physically
deliver or fax the docu-
ment to their colleague
not realizing that the e-
mail system can be used
to deliver any kind of file
right to another comput-
er.
Attach the file to an e-
mail message to your
colleague just as you
would if you were send-
ing a picture. As long as
the recipient has the
same software that you
used to create it, he (or
she) should be able to
save it to his hard drive
and 6pe-n it,.just like any
other file. Then he can
print the document if he
wants or do what he will
with it.
It is, however, the
sender's responsibility to
make sure that their
recipients can open the
file before it's sent.
Nothing is more frustrat-
ing then getting an e-mail
message marked, "Here's
the file you wanted," only
to find it is in some
format you've never
heard of and your com-
puter can't open.
For instance, if you're
sending a Word docu- .
ment, find out what word
processor the recipient
uses. That person may be
using an older version of
Word and not be able to
open a file in a newer
version. A quick peak in
the "help" pull down
menu and a click at the
"about" option will tell
you what version your
word processor is.
Also, have the recipient
check his system so you
can save the document in
the correct version.
If you click "save as"
and look at the "file type"
option pull down menu,

craft and skill lying
dormant within. Bringing
it out and setting it free
\ should be the No. 1
purpose of everyone alive
on Earth. No matter who
we are or what we have
accomplished, there is.
always room to grow if we
truly want it.
True riches live within
the heart and soul: There
is a saying, "Keep on doing
what you are doing now
and you will keep on
having more of the same
of what you have now."
The starting key is to
change something.
I heard a story recently
about a young couple who
got married. On the first
s anniversary, the loving
wife decided to cook
dinner for the family and
ver friends to celebrate the
good fortune bestowed. In
a the kitchen, she went to
ke work. Her devoted hus-
band pitched in. They
started by preparing a
ham. She placed the ham
on the cutting board and
asked her beloved to cut
off the end. He did the job
as directed. Then the ham
and the end piece were
placed on the cooking tray
and safely tucked in the
oven. The husband, being
of inquisitive nature,
asked, "Why did you want
the end of the ham cut
off?"
The wife replied, "That
is the way my mother
. always did it."
Mother was at the
celebration. The young
dj, wife called her into the
kitchen and asked, "Moth-
er, why did you always cut
off the end of the ham
"*n" before cooking it?"
Mother said, "That's the
way your grandmother
always did ii."
Grandmother was
brought into the kitchen
and asked the same
question.
"Oh, that's simple," she
replied. "I only had a small
pan.
There are eight simple
steps to creating true
riches within.
Step 1: Have the desire
for a better life.
You must want to get
out of the same old rut.
Can you relate?
Step 2: Make a goal to
change something.
When we set a goal, we
set a limit and create a
boundary. It's like saying,
"This is what I want. This
| is what I am going to
have." Something has to
AV ^change.
j':' Step 3: Take this new
idea and vision of what we
want and plant it by
writing it down.
This grounds it in the
magical creative universal-
energy. Electricity or seeds
won't sprout or grow
unless they are grounded.
A million dollar idea won't
sprout or grow if it isn't
written down and ground-
ed either.
Step 4: Speak it out loud.
This is the same as


watering a seed. This step
sends the energy out to
spirit for help in the
creative process;
Step 5: Intensify it.
Draw it or find pictures
that bring more detail,
focus and vision to the
desire. Then watch for the
signs that a blessing is
upon the idea and it is
ready to give birth.
Step 6: Fund the new
idea child.
Open a savings account
in its name. Start its life
off from abundance rather
than lack. The law of
tithing (tenfold return)
will keep it healthy always.
Step 7: Create harmony
with others who want to
help your idea child to
grow and help feed it.
This is the same as the
flowers in the garden
feeding each other from
the abundant energy and
pollen they give and
receive back multiplied to
insure fertility, fruitful-
ness and universal harmo-
ny. We must be open to
receive as well as give.
Step 8: Give back and
share the harvest.
Celebrate the victory of
a life well lived. This is
what mothers and fathers
and grandmothers and
grandfathers do.
Isn't this the way you
truly want to live? You can
do it. It's been in us since
birth yearning to be set
free. When we find it, we
take care of our own and
family needs first. Then
we give\ back to those who
inspired and encouraged
us. Then we take care of
our spirit guides. We are
now the light. Next, pass
the torch of truth to the
next generation ready to
learn about true mastery
over life. You can do it. You
were born to do it. It's
your divine purpose. The
sweetest news is the best
is yet to come.

Themed cruises offer unique


experiences to travelers


PATTY TOPPA
Travel columnist


n early November, I had
a most wonderful and
unexpected cruise
experience.
Our company, along with
a local smooth jazz radio
station, sailed aboard Royal
Caribbean's Sovereign of
the Seas on a three-night
itinerary to the Bahamas.
The radio station secured
two incredible jazz artists,
NewYork headliner Matt
Marshak and guitarist, and
nationally acclaimed David
Wells of West Virginia.
They were joined by a
very talented bass player,
Kenny Harris of NewYork
and Carl Anderson of
Baltimore, who mastered
both the drums and
keyboard.
What was really unique
was the artists (with the
exception of Marshak and
Harris) had never played
together before. They
actually met on board the
first day of the cruise.
Our cruise set sail from
Port Canaveral on Friday
afternoon and shortly after
pulling out of port, our
group of about 100 gath-
ered at a pre-dinner
cocktail party. The guys
were gracious and spoke
with great ease with many
of our group. The radio host
made announcements for
the two private concerts
that were scheduled for the
next two evenings. Then we
all headed to dinner. What
we all did not know is that
for the next two evenings
we would be part of some-
thing truly special.
On Saturday, we arrived
in Nassau and many went
ashore, we (myself and two
other Gadabout Travel staff
members) stayed aboard in
the morning with the band
for their first sound check.
It was not a difficult job to
just sit and listen to these
talented guys. The evening
concert was before dinner
and all arrived on time. The
music was breathtaking. It
was the epitome of
"smooth." We came out of
the concert realizing we
witnessed a sound that was
not really heard before.

There is another reason
that I'm "bragging" in this
column. Other businesses,
and especially other car
dealers, are sitting up and
taking notice. Hopefully, we
will see some ofthem
change their business
practices, such as dropping
the dealer fee and changing
their bait and switch
advertising tactics.

What a feeling!
Sunday evening's concert
was even more incredible.
We figured we would be
listening to some really
enjoyable laid-back jazz as
the first evening.
We were so wrong. Not
only was it lively with
people on the floor danc-
ing, but each musician
played a solo that blew us
away.
David Wells' rendition of
'Amazing Grace" on his
flugle horn was something
everyone should be able to
hear. It was flawless.
We were all a little late for
dinner as there were many
encores. Many of the other
passengers who happened
by the Voltage Lounge and
heard the sounds coming
from within wanted to get
in. It was a private concert
through the radio station
and only those who were
part of the group were
allowed.
The overall experience
was more than what the
usual three-night itinerary
would bring. If you want to
experience all things on
board and on shore, you
would be busy as it is a jam-
packed getaway. Longer
cruises tend to be a little
more laid back.
Theme cruises allow you
to take part in something
you are interested in.
Many cruise lines offer
theme cruises from "Fifties
and Sixties" and "Big Band"
to "Murder Mysteries" and
"Texas Hold'Em."
Whateveryour interest or
passion, there is usually a
cruise that can accommo-
date it.
Many luxury lines offer
enrichment programs, such
as on-board experts from
The Smithsonian, wine
sommeliers or international
culinary experiences.
A theme cruise can be
just a group that is traveling
together and have private
gatherings, such as the jazz
cruise I wrote about. Others
can be a half- or full-ship
charter. Most, though, are
specific to an agency and all
reservations must go
through the agency that is
handling all reservations.
Some cruise lines offer
themed itineraries with
some additional on board
activities that reflect the
theme.
Check out some of the
theme cruises that may be
available and you may have
a new cruise experience.
I know I am looking
forward to the second
annual Smooth Jazz Cruise
Feb. 13, 2009. I am a new
smooth jazz listener.

will need minimal care
during these cold snaps.

Pansies
Pansies are an excellent
choice, as they tolerate
cold temperatures and
offer a burst of color in
your winter garden. The
scientific name for these
delicate treasures is violax
wittrockiana.
These plants look
extremely delicate, but
actually are fairly hardy in
regard to cold tempera-
tures. They are used in
many different applica-
tions including window
boxes, flowerbed borders,
hanging baskets, strawberry
jars and pots. Pansies can
grow anywhere from 6 to 9
inches and have a spread of
about 9 to 12 inches.
Pansies are available in
many colors including
white, yellow, gold, bronze,
rose and combinations of
the above listed colors.
Pansies will grow in a
variety of different soils, but
using a rich, dark planting
medium, such as Miracle
Gro, will greatly enhance
the plant quality. The plants
will do best in an area that
gets some direct sunlight. If
the plants are in too much
shade, they will grow tall
and spindly.
Although pansies are
fairly trouble free, there are
some insects that you need
to watch for. In our area,

They are indeed a winter
treat. The flowers have a soft
scent and the plants come
in a variety of sizes, from
dwarf to some that will grow
as high as 4 feet. Since
snapdragons produce the
most blooms during cool
weather, right now is the
best time to purchase and
plant these colorful flowers.
Snapdragons are easy to
grow and do well in partial
shade or sun during January
and February. Place plants
in an area of the yard that
drains well and is not
completely shaded. Use a
high quality potting mix,
such as Miracle Gro, so your
plants can get a good start.
Using a good quality potting
soil also has the advantage
of promoting good drainage
while retaining just enough
moisture so plants do not
dry out as easily between
watering. Fertilize the
plants on a regular basis, at'
least once every two weeks.
Use a good quality water-
soluble fertilizer, such as
Miracle Gro or Peters.
I would like to take this
opportunity to wish
everybody a very Happy
New Year! See you next
week.

aphids can be the biggest
problem along with snails.
Aphids can be treated with
Orthenex and snails can be
treated with any brand of
snail and slug control
pellets.
In conclusion, pansies
should not be planted in the
same soil for more than
three consecutive years.

Snapdragons
Another very popular
winter treat is an interesting
looking plant called the
snapdragon.
Snapdragons are one of
nature's examples of
splashing color and style.
These colorful gems come
in a wide assortment of
colors and varieties and
they are only available in
our area during the winter.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene

Classical

guitarist

returns

to Lyric
As a young man in
Greece, Constanti-
nos Jaferis studied
the string bass, but he
really wanted to play the
guitar.
He drove his father
crazy with his untrained
efforts and when the great
classical guitarist Andres
Segovia came to Greece,
his father sent him to see
how it should be done.
After seeing Segovia, the
young boy knew that
playing the guitar was all
he wanted to do. His
efforts have taken him
around the world, but he
returns home to Stuart on
Jan. 17 for a concert at the
Lyric.
"I saw an instrument
with intense potential," he
said. "Segovia was unbe-
lievable. It was one of the
most impressive moments
of my life; it opened new
horizons in my mind. My
father, a conductor with
the Greek National Opera,
knew the hardships of the
musical world but he had
an open mind and allowed
me to do what I wanted to
do."


Ben Heppner: A humble


tenor with a huge voice


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Renowned tenor Ben Heppner,
considered one of the finest Wagner-
ian tenors of his generation, comes
from Dawson Creek, British Colum-
bia, a town so small that it had "two
television stations, on and off."
The down-to-earth star spoke by
phone from Toronto about how he
discovered opera and why he loves to
perform in concert. He'll be at the
Lyric theatre on Jan. 18, in a program
presented by the Treasure Coast
Concert Association.
Growing up in a small Canadian
town, Mr. Heppner came in contact
with music from occasional Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation radio feeds
on Sunday afternoon. He thought of
opera as something to avoid.
"We had no record player and I
started playing the trumpet in the
school band," Mr. Heppner said.
"Late at night, on an old tube radio, I
could get an unbelievable range of
stations from Texas, Chicago and Los
Angeles. They would come in and fade
out. I spent a lot of weekend nights
listening to skipped radio waves. The
music sent him to the library, where
he worked his way through popular
music like Santana and Emerson,
Lake and Palmer, and when he ran out
of that, to Mozart. Although he
studied opera as a minor in college, it
really didn't touch him then.
"I didn't embrace it until after
university," he said. "I didn't under-

stand it. It seemed to say intimate
things so loudly, at fortissimo. Saying
'I love you,' has huge emotional
impact, and I realized that we portray
the level of the intensity of the
emotion. It's saying these intimate
emotions with something that carries
emotional weight. It's not the deci-
bels; it's the way you sing it. I under-
stood that intellectually, but it took a
long time for me to see that you can
make it sound tender even if it
carries. You also have to get through
the 85 members of the orchestra to
get to the audience.
Although Mr. Heppner has won
fame as a helden, or heroic tenor,
capable of singing the demanding
Wagnerian roles, he does not like to
pigeonholed.
"It's a trap that can be very limit-
ing," he said. "With the label, people
won't think of you for other interest-
ing voices. Not every voice falls in the
box. Some roles were supposed to be
too low for me, and I was surprised
that I was able to sing them.
'"As a heroic tenor, you must be able
to sing as if you're lifting a piano at
the same time. There's a tendency to
make it your hallmark all of the time,
and it takes a lot of energy and a toll
on the vocal cords. I want a bigger
palate."
For the Lyric concert, Mr. Heppner
draws from his extensive repertoire.
"I'll sing some folk songs, first, to
draw people in, and then some Grieg,
Sibelius, and Tchaikovsky," he said.
"After the intermission, I'll sing three
arias, including aWagner, because


Ben Heppner
that's what I'm supposed to do,
Massanet, and Nessun dorma from
'Thrandot.' Then I'll finish the concert
with some English parlor songs that
are very accessible. I have a great
time and my intention is for the
audience to have it, too. I interact
with the audience, telling stories,
making up the talk as I go along. My
accompanist usually rolls his eyes
because it's silly or because he's heard
it before."
Mr. Heppnpr also reminisced about
two giants, Beverly Sills and Luciano
Pavarotti, who died this year.

on napkins, on whatever is
in front of me. I need to
express myself. I'm not a
poet, a writer or a painter.
I'm a musician."
As if those skills were
not enough, Mr. Jaferis
took it upon himself to
design a guitar when he
found that the existing
ones didn't meet his
needs.
"People knew that I
made guitars, but I used a
Ramirez. People wanted to
know why I didn't play my
own," he said. "Today, it's a
unique instrument with 27
frets instead of 19 and it
has a higher range that
enables me to play pieces I
could not. I premiered a
work I wrote with the
Indian River Pops on a
guitar I made. That made
my life fantastic.
This is the sixth Lyric
concert for Mr. Jaferis and
it is his home base.
"I always design special
programs," he said.
"People send E-mails of
what they want to hear. I
always play some familiar
and some new; some
famous Spanish com-
posprs, some Bach and
Beethoven and some
original pieces. I make
people my guest and I'm
the way I am in my living
room. I never know what
the conversation is going
to be or what people will
ask. The people are my
guests and we're going to
have a great time. It's the
highlight of my year
because it is my home-
town."

Four Bitchin' Babes
at the Sunrise
If you're looking for a
fun way to spend Saturday
night, the Sunrise Theatre
has Four Bitchin' Babes in
their new musical, "Hor-
monal Imbalance: A Mood
Swinging Musical Revue."
Sally Fingerett, one of the
original members, spoke
by phone from Columbus
Ohio, about the show,
which features Ms. Fin-
gerett, Debi Smith, Nancy
Moran and Deirdre Flint,
"best friends from child-
hood who didn't meet
until we were professional
performers."
Describing the evening
as "Carole King meets
James Taylor meets Woody
Allen meets Erma
Bombeck," Ms. Fingerett
says that the show features
songs and skits about all
aspect of a woman's life.
That might be enough to
send men screaming, but
Ms. Fingerett wants men
to know that they are
welcome.
"We love men," she said.
"It's men-friendly. If you
want to know how women
think, come see us. They

a funny, loving song about
Viagra."
Four Bitchin Babes will
be at the Sunrise for an 8
p.m. show on Jan. 12. If
you've ever laughed about
hot flashes or flat chests -
and there's a song called
"The Boob Fairy," you're
going to laugh some more.

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band brings the life and music of New Orleans to the Sunrise Theatre on Jan. 15.


Preservation Hall Jazz Band honors


the past and looks to the future


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Ben Jaffe is a keeper of
the flame.
His parents, Sandra and
Allan, visited New Orleans
on their honeymoon and
decided to make it their
home.
In 1961, they purchased
Preservation Hall in the


French Quarter as a means
of keeping the music and
culture of the Crescent
City alive.
Today, in a community
still struggling to rebuild
after Hurricane Katrina, it
is Ben Jaffe's mission to
keep his parents' vision
alive and help the city
come back stronger.
Ben Jaffe brings the
Preservation Hall Jazz
band to the Sunrise
Theatre on Jan. 15; he
spoke by phone from New
Orleans about the concert
and about how, the city he
loves is coping with
recovery.
"We've come quite far,"
Mr. Jaffe said. "One of our,
efforts is an organization
called 'Renew our Music.'
We've made huge inroads


I


into insuring the future of
our cultural traditions, but
most musicians are in the
same boat as, most of our
citizens. Citizens and
businesses are still strug-
gling. We haven't seen a
concerted effort on behalf
of the federal government
to infuse capital to make
the city what it was.
"The band has been
elevated to a new role
since the hurricane. We
were always the torchbear-
ers of New Orleans jazz;
we are now the cultural
ambassadors for the city.
It's a big responsibility, but
our mission.has.always,
been to con-tinue this
amazing tradition of New ..
Orleans jazz.
While Mr. Jaffe and the
Preservation Hall Jazz

Band feel a responsibility
to their city, they want
everyone to remember
that the music is fun.
"We like to think of
ourselves as a good-time
New Orleans jazz band,"
Mr. Jaffe said. "We like to
transport people to
another time and place
when we perform. We
hope it brings back
memories of New Orleans-
a honeymoon, a vacation-
that triggers some sense of
what New Orleans is. One
of our goals is to transcend
the venue and matke the,
experience as if you were
here in Preservation Hall."
The band loves to
perform for audiences of
all ages, becafse-,the
tradition of New Orleans
jazz is to pass it to the next
generation.
"It's so much fun to
perform for oldet r and '
younger audiences," he'
said. "For the older ones,
it's songs they grew up
with on the radio. For the
younger, it's hearing the
classics for the first time,
songs like 'Bill Bailey,'
'Tiger Rag' and 'Basin
Street Blues.' We encour-
age all ages to attend our
shows. In New Orleans,
grandparents bring
grandchildren to our
shows. That's how we pass
on our traditions. It's our
responsibility to bring
music to the young ones.
We still hold cultural
events close to our hearts
and wear our pride on our
sleeves."

Jazz band performs at the

Hello, smart shoppers.
I hope you had a
good week.
Are you ready for some
delicious, good-for-you
meals? How about chicken-
in the pot? It's a stew with
whole pieces of chicken and
vegetables in a rich broth.
Serve it with low-fat
biscuits. I use low-fat
biscuit mix and top them
with a low-fat butter
substitute and a drizzling of
honey. It's wonderful,
satisfying and easy,to make,
from the stove to the table
in less than 40 minutes
Ariother variation of this
recipe is chicken and
dumplings.
Enjoy. See you next week.

CHICKEN IN THE
POT;
Serves four *

1 whole chicken, cut up
or any pieces you choose
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, sliced
2 or 3 stalks celery, cut
into chunks
5 carrots, thickly sliced
3 medium potatoes,
peeled and cut in half
Several sprigs fresh
Italian
parsley, chopped, or 1
tablespoon dried
1/2 teaspoon black
pepper
2 shakes garlic powder
1 bay leaf (optional)
1 teaspoon salt
Water (about 4 cups)

To make this low fat, don't
use wings, or use only
chicken breasts.
Remove all visible skin
and fat from chicken and


ARLENE BORG
Romancing the Stove
with the Grammy Guru

soak in cold, salted water
for at least one hour.
Saute onions in oil until
golden, adding a little Water
if necessary. Rinse and
drain chicken; place in pot.
Add remaining ingredients:
Water should just cover the
chicken and vegetables.
Cover and cook until
potatoes are tender. When
the potatoes are done and
the chicken is cooked
through, taste and adjust
seasonings.
Serve in deep soup bowls
over rice for a heart-
warming meal.

CHICKEN AND
DUMPLINGS
Follow base recipe for
chicken in the pot. Omit
potatoes and use only 3
cups water. You can leave
the chicken on the.bone or
de-bone it and cut it into
chunks. Cook until chicken
is done and vegetables are
tender, about 30 minutes.
Shake about 3 table-
spoons of flour and 1 cup
water in a jar. Thicken gravy
until desired consistency is


reached. Add more water if
necessary.
Serve with dumplings
(recipe follows).

DUMPLINGS
Serves 4
2 cups'sifted flour
1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking
powder
1 large egg
2/3 cup milk (regular,
low-fat or skim)
3 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
(optional)
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
2 cups chicken broth
(homemade, canned or
bouillon)

Sift dry ingredients
together. Add egg, milk, oil,
parsley, pepper and seeds.
Mix well; batter will be stiff.
In a separate pot, bring
the chicken broth to a boil.
Drop dumpling mixture by
tablespoons into boiling
broth. Lower heat and cover
tightly. Cook 18 minutes.
Do not raise cover during
cooking time and be sure to
keep that heat very low.
Note: When I'm making
chicken and dumplings I
never put the dumplings in
the same pot as the chicken
because they absorb all the
gravy.

QUICK OR LOW-FAT
DUMPLINGS
Biscuit mix may be used
for quick dumplings.
Follow package directions,
add seasonings as directed
in dumpling recipe.
Also, you can make
dumplings using low-fat
biscuit mix. Be sure to
check all brands. Some low-
fat mixes, such as Pioneer,
are much lower in fat than
others.

From page BI1
"Beverly Sills was fun to be
around and a hard worker.
She brought her joy of life to
her singing," he said.
"Pavarotti was an amazing
singer. As an actor, with all
love and respect, he had no
flexibility. He said everything
with that voice. It was a
shining light when he sang.
We don't have anyone with
.that unique quality who
shines as no one else does."

Andre McIntyre begins his 13th year as the Martin County High School boy's basketball
coach with a 12-1 record for the 2007-2008 season.

Area coach sings a familiar tune


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
It's not beyond possibility
that Andre McIntyre and his
brood were the inspiration
for Sister Sledge's "We Are
Family."
'The youngest of 11, McIn-
tyre has six sisters and four
brothers. The Port St. Lucie
resident also has around 105
nieces arid nephews.
"It could be more," McIn-
tyre said. "I love it."
McIntyre's family-first
mentality is also a con-
tributing factor to his
accomplishments on .the
basketball court. Now in his
13th season as the Martin
County's boys' coach, the
2007-08 version of the Tigers
is off to its best start in years
and exhibiting many of the
traits that compose a suc-
cessful family.
"It's about growing
together and believing in
the concept of team," McIn-
tyre said. "It's about trusting
your teammates.
"Now, we trust each
other.'"
Martin County started


this season with a 84-71 win
over John Carroll. The Tigers
followed that up with three
strong victories over Fort
Pierce Westwood, Mel-
bourne Central Catholic and
Port St. Lucie to move to 4-0.
"A goal of ours was to start
off strong," McIntyre said.
"We expected to win
games."
The Tigers reeled off four
more wins, including a vic-
tory of county rival South
Fork for its best start since
starting the 1982-83 season
at 8-0.
Unfortunately, Martin
County's attempt at nine
straight was thwarted by
W.T. Dwyer.
"I am confident that we
have enough veteran play-
ers to bounce back after a
tough loss," McIntyre said.
That is exactly what the
Tigers did, sending Sebast-
ian River to a 74-67 defeat to
put Martin County in the
win column once again.
"The kids responded
well," McIntyre said.
Since then, the Tigers
have been equally as
impressive. Martin Country


Agency, Inc


Timothy W Wilson


dominated its way through
the Hall-A-Fame Classic,
winning the championship
with a 73-53 victory over
Oviedo-Hagerty to go to 12-
1.
"It's the best start I've had
as a coach," McIntyre said.
"We're working hard and
trying to get better each day
and each game to position
ourselves for the district
tournament."
Putting in the extra effort
has been an attribute of
McIntyre's since as far back
as he can remember.
"I was always very com-
petitive," McIntyre said. "In
my family, all my brothers
played ball"
After getting his first taste
of team basketball in fourth
grade, the Indiantown
native played in middle
school before heading to the

Advanced
tickets available
for outdoor
wrestling show
BY ROB SHELBURNE
Sports writer
Taking a page from the
National Hockey League,
the newly formed World
Wrestling Association
debuts Jan. 19 at 1 p.m.
with "Bash at the Ballpark,"
a star-studded, outdoor
wrestling show at the
4,500-seat Cocoa Expo Sta-
dium.
Earlier this month, the
NHL's Buffalo Sabres and
Pittsburgh Penguins
thrilled a crowd of 71,000
at Ralph Wilson Stadium in
Buffalo, N.Y., to a one-of-a-
kind outdoor hockey game
won by the Penguins 2-1 in
an overtime shootout.
While next week's "Bash"
will be hard-pressed to
duplicate the wintry condi-
tions fans encountered in
western New York, it is sure
to provide the same level of
outdoor' excitement. for pro
wrestling devotees.
"We're really looking for-
ward to this event," said
WWA president and
founder Mike Richman,
whose previous "Mayhem


E2f *0.


in Melbourne" and "May-
hem in Melbourne II"
helped wet Brevard's
appetite for championship
wrestling. "Our past events
have been very successful,
and area wrestling fans
have been asking us to do
more shows."
Richman said he has
received ticket requests
from throughout Central
Florida and the Tampa/St.
Petersburg area.
"This will be the biggest
event for us, yet," Richman
added. "We'll be setting up
about 1,000 ringside seats.
That gives you an idea of
what kind of crowd we are
expecting."
Feature matches for
"Bash at the Ballpark" will
include: Buff Bagwell vs.
Frankie Capone; Scotty 2
Hotty vs. Vic Creed; The
Honky Tonk Man vs. "The
Japanese Nightmare"
Kahagas.
The afternoon will begin
with an eight-man, tag-
team elimination match.
Later in the show, a
revenge tag-team match
will feature WWE rivals
Demolition Ax and Smash
against "The Powers of
Pain" Warlord and The
Barbarian.
The main event will fea-
ture "Sycho" Sid Vicious vs.
"Native American" Tatan-


Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
also will be featured, and
the legendary "Rowdy"
Roddy Piper will host his
"Piper's Pit" talk show.
Matches also will feature
the best up-and-coming
talent from the Southeast.
Born Sid Eudy, Vicious,
47 and a two-time WWF
and WCW champion, made
his WCW debut in 1989
when he was paired with
Danny Spivey to form The
Skyscrapers of World
Championship Wrestling.
It was. during this early
period of his career the 6-
foot-9-inch, 317-pound
Vicious incorporated the
Powerbomb, his signature
finishing move popular
with audiences throughout,
North America.
His career was sidelined
in 2001 when he broke his
leg during an aerial
maneuver against Scott
Steiner in the main event
at Sin 2001 in Indianapolis,
Indiana.
The broken leg was just
the latest in a string of
wrestling-related injuries
the durable Eudy has
worked through in his
career.
"I've had half a lung
removed, the vertebrae in
my neck fused and surgery
on a torn bicep," he said in
a telephone interview last
week. "But, the leg injury is
100 percent healed."
Eudy said getting back in
the ring was never in ques-
tion after the ;latest injury.
"I 'didn't want. it taken
away from me like that," he


said of his 24 years in the
business. "I wanted to
prove I still have what it
takes, and I think I've done
that. Plus, it's a lot of fun."
While he and Tatanka
have never wrestled
against each other, the two
have worked the same ven-
ues.
"I don't know much
about him," he said of his
opponent in the main
event. "He's a good
wrestler, but, to be honest,
I don't see it going well for
him in this match. It's
going to be tough on him.
I've put myself in a posi-
tion to do something big,
and when they leave, peo-
ple will say 'this guy's for
real. He's physical, he's
tough and he's somebody
you don't want to mess
with.'"
A descendant of the
Lumbee tribe, Tatanka,
whose name means "bull
buffalo" was born Chris
Chavis in Pembroke N.C.
He made his WWF debut
in 1991 and soon ran up an
undefeated streak lasting
nearly two years, taking
down marquee names such
as Rick Martel and Shawn
Michaels along the way.
Known for his Lumbee
tribal war cry and toma-
hawk chop, Tatanka, 46,
left the WWE in 1996.
He returned to action
full-time in December
2005, teaming with Shelton
Benjamin for a tag-team
victory over Carlito and
Jonathan Coachman.

Change the scoring system


to make golf more popular


Every other January, the
U.S. GolfAssociation
revises the rules of golf.
Today, Iwould like to add
my own set of rules for our
Same.
According to recent
statistics from the National
Golf Foundation, our game is
not growing as we had
'hoped. In fact, we are seeing
more golfers leaving the
game than coming to it. With
imy new rules, I hope to stop
this downward spiral and
make our game more
I: appealing'to the masses.
> Golfisthe only major sport
where the highest score does
not win. I believe that to be
'' competitive with our other
favorite sports, we need to
adjust our scoring methods.
We need higher scores, not
lower. We Americans seem to
despise low scores.
For instance, take a look at
how popular soccer is here. I
rest my case.
My new rules for golf will
get rid of our traditional
system of counting the
number of times we hit the
ball and adding strokes to
that when we do something
wrong.
With my rules, the highest
score wins! You'll still need to
count strokes, but only
points awarded for playing
the hole will be counted.
If you arrive at the course
at least 30 minutes before
your scheduled tee time, give
yourself a point. If you hit a

with more than 5 minutes to

uled to tee off and you've
earned another point.
You haven't even hit the
first ball and you have the
potential to be three points
ahead of your lazy partners.
There's nothing like being
rewarded for being punctual.
When it's your turn to take
the tee, if you already have
your club selected, and a ball
and tee in hand, give yourself
another point. I love ready
golf!
If you do not tee your ball
up in front of the tee mark-
ers, you're entitled to a point.
Take fewer than two practice
swings and you'll be reward-
ed yet another.
If your drive lands in the


fairway, you get a point.
Longest drive in the fairway
in your group gets you a
bonus point. If you hit the
green in regulation, that's
another two points. Miss, but
get on in few enough strokes
to have a put for par, and
you've earned a point.
Of course, there have to be
penalties for those bad shots.
With my rules, instead of
adding strokes, you simply
subtract points. Hit a ball
out-of-bounds- and you
simply place the ball where it
went out, and subtract a
point. You may even get that
point back with a great
recovery and a putt for par.
A ball hit into a water
hazard earns no point
penalty. Why? Because you
just lost that expensive ball
on the course. That is penalty
enough!
We've all had those times
when our best drive landed
in an un-repaired or un-
sanded divot. Not an easy
shot and pretty crummy
luck. With my rules, if you
advance the ball to within 20
yards of the green from that
line, you get a bonus point.
Hit the green with the shot,
and you get another!
Now to make sure that no
one else gets those bonus
points, golfers will be happy
to fill in their divots. The
same goes on the green
when putting over ball
marks. If you have a ball
mark in your way and your
ball hits it and still goes in,


you've earned a bonus point.
Again, you'll be likely to fix
more than one of those nasty
scars just to keep anyone
else from picking up that
same bonus.
We all hate bunker shots.
How many times have you
taken two or three to get the
ball out of one of them? With
my new rules, you get a
bonus point for every sand
save. This should encourage
you to practice those shots
and work on that short game
a little.
b Anyone seen leaving the
bunker and not raking it, will
lose a point from his or her
score. Those things are
tough enough already.
At the end of the day, you'll
find yourself adding points
and winding up with a score
that resembles a triple-
overtime NBA All-Star game
score. That should make
everyone happy.
Now, go apply my new
rules, or even make a few up
yourself, and see ifwe can
better enjoy our great game
and bring a few more new
golfers along for the ride.
Just remember the
batteries for the calculator.

next level.
"I played as a freshman
and sophomore at Martin
County," McIntyre said. "I
moved up to varsity the last
part of sophomore year."
After two seasons with the
Tigers, McIntyre got the
news that he would be fin-
ishing off his high school
career at another school -
the newly opened South
Fork.
"I was zoned to go to
South Fork," McIntyre said.
"It was an easy transition
from the beginning.
"I was excited about
opening up a new school."
While McIntyre was
ecstatic about his new team,
many of the squads suiting
up against the Bulldogs were
not. In just its second year of
existence, South Fork defied
the odds and earned an invi-
tation to add a champi-
onship to its quickly grow-
ing list of achievements.
"Going to the state tour-
nament in 1984, my senior
year, it was exciting," McIn-

tyre said. "Being as competi-
tive as I was, I didn't look at
us as a new school.
"I looked at us as a group
of players who deserved to
be in state tournament."
Although the Bulldogs fell
to Tampa Jesuit by five in the
semifinals, it was an experi-
ence that is still etched in
McIntyre's mind.
. "I'll never forget," McIn-
tyre said. "I remember the
stats from that game.
"I had 22 points, nine
rebounds and nine assists. I
made first team all-state."
South Fork's final record
of 27-5 still stands as one-of
the best seasons in school
history.
"It was exciting," McIntyre
said.
After his successful high-
school career, McIntyre




Fitnes,


moved on to Liberty Univer-
sity, where he continued to
ply his trade on the hard-
wood.
"My parents were happy
that I settled on Liberty,"
McIntyre said. "During that
time, I was just happy to go
to school.
"It was a great experience.
Coming from a small town I
loved traveling to different
parts of the country.
"I almost enjoyed travel-
ing more than playing."
Unfortunately, a coaching
change led McIntyre to
transfer to West Virginia
after two seasons where he
finished his collegiate
career.
"It was a great. experi-
ence," McIntyre said. "I
started four years of college
ball."

Bash
From page BIO


Tatanka has several titles
to his credit, including two
Generation International
Heavyweight Champi-
onships, an NAWA Heavy-
weight Championship and a
USWA Unified World heavy-
weight Championship.
The 6-foot-1-inch, 258-
pound Chavis had a chance
at a career with the Miami
Dolphins, but, according to
his- bio on Wikipedia.com,
the NFL franchise's 1987
offer was less than what he
was making at a local health
spa.
Chavis said the size
advantage enjoyed by Eudy
is all in the mind.
"Preparing yourself men-
tally is the first step," he
said. "You must avoid
opportunities where Sid
can use his strength against
you. (You) work on his legs
and get him to the mat.
When you get, someone to
the mat, it is a totally differ-
ent game. This is where you
go to work with guys like
Sid."
With the stage set for an
epic battle of two ring
giants, Chavis said to count


on a great battle.
"I will enter the ring as a
warrior representing a
whole nation of people,
being Native Americans,"
he said. "And, you can rest
assured this Native Ameri-
can will be bringing the
battle to Sid."
Tickets for "Bash at the
Ballpark" can be purchased

and delved into coaching.
"It was very different,"
McIntyre said. "I didn't have
any idea of iVhat I was:
doing.
"When I played, I was in
control of what was going
on. When you're a coach,
you have a different influ-
ence being on the side-
lines and encouraging the
kids."
McIntyre coached the
freshman team at South
Fork and led the 1988-89
team to a 15-5 record. After
three seasons, he moved up
to the junior varsity squad
where he spent another
three campaigns.
"When the coaching bug
hits you, you start enjoying
it more," McIntyre said.
While continuing to grow
in his profession, McIntyre
earned his first shot at a var-
sity head coaching position.
Only the chance wasn't at
South Fork, but Martin
County.
"I was so excited at having


ooo


I


\


the opportunity to coach at
Martin County, knowing
their tradition."
McIntyre continued his
winning ways, leading the,
Tigers to a 18-9 mark and a
conference championship
in his first season. Since
then, he has built Martin
County into one of the most
respected programs in the
state.
"Martin County basket-
ball should be one of the
elite programs in the state,"
McIntyre said. "When you
think Martin County, you
should think of the best
teams."
While McIntyre has set-
tled into his role quite nice-
ly, a higher position, possi-
bly at the next level is not
out of question.
"I'm now married with
kids," McIntyre said. "But
never say never. In any pro-
fession, you would like to
move up.
"If the opportunity
comes, I'll look into it."
