Early retirement focus of county budget proposal

Adoption could

he called a "dry-run" for a
potentially slashed county
budget, Martin County
Administrator Duncan Bal-

retirement plan for employ-
ees to the county commis-


Story highlights
culture of local
Bahamians
BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART -Port Salerno
might not seem like a dan-
gerous place to most peo-
ple, but Stuart author
Chandler Josie gives the
small community a hint of
an underworld twist in his
first novel highlighting
local Bahamian culture.
A second-generation
Bahamian-American, Mr.
Josie, 39, says his family
was one of the first
Bahamian families to settle
in New Monrovia, a peace-


sion on Jan. 22.
The commission had pre-
viously asked all county
department heads to
reduce their budgets in the
light of property tax reform
and reduced sales tax rev-
enues, which are projected
to be $3 million in the cur-
rent fiscal budget. Mr. Bal-
lantyne said his plan would
offer the county a "win-win"
scenario.
"It is to provide incentives
and opportunities for
employees and some signif-


ful neighborhood wedged
between Salerno and Cove
roads east of U.S. 1.
He centered his book,
"God-Daddy" (2007),
around the importance of
extended family relation-
ships in the Bahamian cul-
ture, and in particular, the
godparent/godchild rela-
tionship.
"God-Daddy" traces the
lives of the two main pro-
tagonists, best friends
Falana Hughes and Janine
Miller, and the relationship
they have with their godfa-
ther, Michael Daniel Josey,
who they simply refer to as
'God-daddy.'
From the time they were
born, the two girls were
spoiled by Mr. Josey, a suc-
cessful but mysterious


icant cost savings to the
county," he said.
If approved by county
commissioners, Mr. Ballan-
tyne said the plan would
cut more than 50 positions
and would provide eligible
employees two weeks of
salary for every year of serv-
ice, to a maximum of 26
weeks or six months. It
would also provide them a
year of full health insurance
coverage. The plan is mod-
eled after an early retire-
ment program recently
implemented by the Martin


local businessman who
becomes the topic of much
sinister speculation.
As the girls grow up, they
find themselves torn
between their devotion to
their godfather and their
growing curiosity about
the constant rumors and
allegations. Through it all,
even as Mr. Josey goes into
self-imposed exile in the
Bahamas during the height
of the controversy, he still
maintains a watchful eye
over his two goddaughters,
even from a distance, and
continues to shower them
with gifts.
The author attributes the
book's focus to his cultural
upbringing and the rela-

County Sheriff's Office.
Some of the commission-
ers expressed reservations
about the plan, in particular
Lee Weberman, who con-
sidered the plan's monetary
cap too high and was con-
cerned about "senior man-
agers walking out with
more than $50,000."
"For some people, this is
going to be viewed as a
golden parachute," he said.

Students star in environmental program


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART Four of Martin
County's best local stage
performers were invited to
make their television debut
recently in a nationally syn-
dicated school documen-
tary.
And they're all under the
age of 17.
Christian Martek, 16, Kat-
rina Colletti, 14, her younger


sister Andrea, 12, and
Michael Risco, 14, beat out
about 30 other young actors
to win the anchor roles in
"Eco=Kids," an educational
documentary aimed at
teaching America's youth to
be more environmentally
conscious.
Christian and Katrina,
both Martin County High
School students, filmed a
version for middle schools,
while Andrea, a Murray Mid-


die School sixth-grader, and
Michael, who attends Stuart
Middle School, filmed one
for elementary schools.
Katrina says she's been
performing in live produc-
tions since 2002 but actually
won her first role when she
was only four years old.
'"A group of kids came to
town called America's Kids,"
she said. "When they asked
me what I did, I said I like to
sing opera, -and I started


singing this opera note. I got
the solo."
She explained that when
she heard the audience
laugh during the perform-
ance, it was the "spark" that
ignited her passion for act-
ing.
"I knew that it's what I
wanted to do with the rest of
my life," she said.
Christian got his first act-

foodbank

in need of

donations

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART Jesus House of
Hope was founded in 1984
with the goal of helping
lower-income Martin County
families who were struggling
to pay bills and put food on
the table.
Over the years, the not-for-
profit organization has
helped thousands of families
through its Pantry, Clothes
Closet and Emergency Finan-
cial Assistance programs but
is now struggling to keep up
with demand as a result of the
economic downturn.
The requests for food assis-
tance in 2007 rose 35 percent
from the previous year, and
those seeking financial aid
increased by 31 percent,
according to executive direc-
tor Patrick Slattery.
"We used more money -
over $122,000 last year in
direct bill payments for
clients," he said. "We used
more money to help more
families than we ever have
before in our 24 years of exis-
tence."
Mr. Slattery, who's been at
the helm of JHOH for 14
years, attributes the signifi-
cant increases in request for
charitable services to the
slump in the area's housing
and construction industries,
along with the way in which
Martin County has grown
over the last several years.

Written by Stuart resident and budding novelist Chandler
Josie, the novel 'God-Daddy' is set in Port Salerno and fol-
lows the lives of two Bahamian-American girls and their
, relationship with their mysterious godfather.


Author
From page Al


tionship with his own god-
parents and his two god-
daughters, Jailyn Brown, 10,
and Nijah Miller, 11, both of
Port Salerno.
"My godparents ... I can't
even express how influen-
tial they've been to me," he
said. "I know from the rela-
tionship that I have with my
own godparents and my
godchildren, it is an awe-
some relationship."
In fact, when Mr. Josie
A6 married his wife Marionette
at the New Allen Temple
African Methodist Episco-
pal Church in Hobe Sound
in 2001, his godfather,
Alfred Patton of Port Saler-
no, was .one of the officiat-
ing pastors.
He says that one of his
godmothers, Diane Ander-
son of Port Salerno, used to
work for the Martin County
Library System and encour-
'aged him to get his book
into the local libraries. Now
it makes him proud know-
ing that local residents can
check out his work and read
it.
"One day I was in the
library, and somebody was
looking at my copy of the
book. When I told'them I
was the author, they got all
excited and checked it out.
That was a great feeling."
His godfather, Jessie
'Anderson, said that life in
the Bahamian community
of Port Salerno is similar to
life on the islands in many
ways.
"We're a close-knit com-
munity," he said. "We really


believe in the old saying, 'it
takes a village to raise a
child.' Because most par-
ents were working, it would
take the godparent and the
grandparents to look after
the kids."
Mr. Anderson, whose
own father immigrated to
Port Salerno from
Eleuthera, in the Bahamas
in 1924, emphasized that
children in the Bahamian-
American community are
taught to respect their god-
parents as much as their
parents. The children also
know that they're being
doubly watched and could
receive twice the punish-
ment.
"If the neighbors and tlje
godparents saw you
involved in something you
weren't supposed, to hbe
doing, they'd let your par-
ents know quick," he said.
"They'd get after you, arid
then you'd get it when y got home too. You could gft
two whippings."
An older friend :of the
author, William S. Blatch,
lives across from Mr. Josie's
late grandmother's house.
Born in New Jersey, he first
came to Port Salerno in
1949 to live with his late
grandfather, William E.
Blatch, who he said owned
much of the land at the
time around the intersec-
tion of Cove Road and 48th
Street.
"This (Port Salerno) was
completely a Bahamian
community," he said.
"Everybody used to trade
(barter) with the Smith
Grocery on AIA and Saler-
no Road."
Mr. Blatch says he still
has fond ,memories of his
own godparents.
"It was always another
home, and they always
treated you like their own,"
he said. "They'd always
give you a nickel or dime to
go to the store, and they'd
discipline you like their
own."
In addition to discipline,
godparents also have the
reputation of spoiling their
godchildren, as in the case
of Falana and Janine. Even
the author himself admits
to spoiling his own god-
children, who appear on
the book's cover.
"I think I over-spoiled
them, but you know how
that goes," Mr. Josie said.
And as far as the two pro-
tagonists and what they
finally discovered about
their beloved and generous
godfather?
Well, you'll have to either
buy or check out the book
for that.

Daddy," call AuthorHouse

REVIEW

County opts to finish Indian Riverside Park
instead of funding aquatic complex
Although they voted more than a year ago to fund a
community swimming pool and water sports complex
with new sales tax money, county commissioners were
forced to give up on the idea due to new state limitations
on spending tax revenues.
County Administrator Duncan Ballantyne attributed
the problem to a lack of funds to operate the complex
once building was to be completed. Officials had hoped
to find a private company interested in running the
complex but have failed to do so.
Several area swim teams had lobbied the parks and
recreation advisory board to build the pool since the
only other facility, the Martin County High School pool,
will be closed permanently in 2009.
The commission voted unanimously on Jan. 22 to ded-
icate the funds to finish Indian Riverside Park instead,
since that facility produces revenue from building
rentals to cover its own operating expenses.
Commissioner Michael DiTerlizzi said he hopes to
eventually find the funds to build just an Olympic-sized
pool so area swim teams will have somewhere to prac-
tice after 2009.
The Martin County School Board currently plans to
pave over the pool at the high school and turn it into
parking spaces.
Bathtub Reef closure extended
One of Martin County's most popular family beaches
will be off-limits for at least a year.
The beach, known as Bathtub Reef, suffered severe
erosion from several storms last fall. The rain washed
away the narrow beach and the area's protective dunes,
leaving only exposed tree roots. Martin County received
a $1.6 million grant from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection for dune restoration, but
county officials say it's not enough money to renourish
the beach as well.
The re-opening of the beach hinges on the restoration
of the dunes, which has been delayed by permitting
issues. Now it will be further delayed by sea turtle nest-
ing season. Workers won't be able to disturb the area
from March until the end of the season in November,
meaning that restoration can't begin until late this year.
This means Martin County families will have to go an
entire summer without the beach, which is frequently
jammed on weekends and holidays.

Ask The Jeweler
Most scholars agree the
Valentine's Day began in
ancient Rome. The most
widely accepted story
has to do with Saint
Valent nti. Valentine lived
in Rome during the 3rd
century. During hat time,
Rome was rule by the
Emperor Claudius who
attempted to make a vol-
unteer army for Rome.
however, he was quite
disappointed when the
number of men who
signed up was less than
he expected. He
believed the reason that
men did not want to fight
was because they did
not want to leave their
wives and children. In.
order to preserve his
army, he placed a ban
on marriage throughout
Rome.
Valentine was a priest
and he did not agree
.,Lth the. law; $b he con-
a* tlnued marrying couples
inri'secret. Eventually he
wqs caught, i imprisoned
ahd sentenced ro death
,he had many supporters
'while in.prison, including
,iath'e daughter of the
'' ptisori guard. Legend
, I ates that oh the-day he
': died, February 14th,
.'Valentine left a note for
her thanking her for
being there for him. He
signed it, "love from your
Valentine." Most people
do not realized that they
are giving a Valentine's
Day gift on the day that
Valentine himself was
killed!

United for Families,
which hosted the training
on Jan. 17, is the commu-
nity-based care agency
that coordinates and over-
sees child-welfare services
in St. Lucie, Martin, Indian
River and Okeechobee'
counties. Proulx's employ-
er, Children's Home Soci-
ety, is part of United for
Families' network of
providers, .
United for Families cre-
ated the award as a way to
recognize and better sup-r '
port the efforts of depend-
ency case managers, who
coordinate services for
children in the dependen-
cy court system.
It was the second time
that Mr. Proulx won the
award, which has become
the centerpiece of United
for Families' program to
train and retain quality
social workers and stabi-
lize the child-welfare sys-
tem for children.
"Rene is really level-
headed; he doesn't let
things get to him,", said
Rob Stewart, Mr. Proulx's
supervisor. "He just does
his work, and he does it
very well not just
because it's a job, but
because he really cares."
Mr. Proulx said that
many of his fellow case
managers were equally-
deserving of the honor.
He was nominated by
those same peers for his
work ethic, willingness to
'.always assist his co-work-
Sers and his care and
-respect for the many fami-
lies and children he serves.
In addition to a $250
bonus check and compli-
mentary tickets to United

Regarding the Jensen Beach Causeway lights

The engineer who approved the lights, knowing we do
have hurricanes here, and the company who sold them
should absorb the cost of putting up the proper lights, not
the taxpayers. -

Dogs aren't always welcome

I just wanted to rave about the nice arts and crafts show
at Jensen Beach.
I just have a question for everybody out there, "Why do
people bring dogs to an arts and crafts show?" Do they
think the dogs know about arts and crafts?
I saw several people, some who even had dogs in a baby
carriage. One person had two dogs on a leash. They bark
and there's not much room. I am a pet owner and a pet
lover, but I know my dogs do not like craft shows and
people do like to look at your dogs, smell them or watch
them whatever they're doing.
Use some common sense people.

Stop passing on double yellow lines,

Twice in the last month as I drove through my residential
neighborhood, going the speed limit I might add, I have
had two vehicles pass me on the double yellow line.
When has it become legal to pass on the double yellow?
This is happening more and more and I am just appalled
that someone can have such blatant disregard for the safety
of others to save a few moments by speeding through a
residential neighborhood.
These are not small vehicles either.
If you see yourself in this letter, take a breath and take
your foot off the gas and just relax. A few moments more to
get where you are going won't kill you and just might save
someone.

More on hyperactivity drugs

In response to a recent rant about all the drugs kids are
getting for hyperactivity problems, I have good news.
Research is now being done, and they are finding out that
these hyperactive kids may have the condition called RLS,
Restless Leg Syndrome, which causesgpeople (and possibly
kids) to move their legs and bodies because of the nerve
vibrations in their bodies that won't subside unless they are
running or moving. They can't sit still. This is possibly
caused, they are finding, from a lack of dopamine, a
chemical way in the back of your brain. Dopamine is a
nerve transmitter, aid if a person has too little of this
chemical, it can cause plenty of discomfort and agitation.
There are tests for this, and these children's parents should
seek a possible alternative to these strong mediines for
ADHD and ADD. Dopamine also "feeds" on iron, and some
people with this condition of restlessness are anemic.
Exercise helps and so do some natural herbs, iron and
vitamins. The RLS.org foundation has some information on
it, or Google dopamine Get these thousands of kids off
these terrible drugs at so young an age. Test them.

Obnoxious commercials

I too am disgusted with the "asterisk" commericals on
television. I sent an e-mail relative to this obnoxious
commercial to Bright House. They acknowledged receipt
of my e-mail and stated that I would receive a response to
my complaint. This did not happen.
Another obnoxious commerical is the tax preparer who is
after the business of people who have not filed their taxes
in years and the IRS is after them.
He calls them good people. Since when are people who
don't file/pay their taxes "good people?"


small media mail envelope back in the car. I had to go into
Publix next.
Then, I noted someone going into that same mini-post
office with something to mail of his own. I decided to do a
little spy work, which paid off.
That same man took that person's manila envelope. It
was then that I walked in and said, "That's not fair."
Boy, was I angry. This man should be ashamed of himself
for turning me away. I will not buy a thing in their store
again.

Writer thinks liberals too phony, pompous

Far-left, ultra liberals are so transparently phony that
they continually need to conjure up baseless talking points.
The Democrat attacks on Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Glenn
Beck and Rush Limbaugh are shameless, calculated
attempts to discredit conservative commentators, and the
liberal media is only too happy to perpetuate the lies.
Yet, when Democrats and liberals are confronted with a
bribe-taking congressman (www.cnn.com/2006/POLI-
TICS/05/21/jefferson.search/index.html) William Jefferson,
D-La., or alleged rapist Bill Clinton
(unvw. worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=--33
270) within their ranks, they rally around their criminal
with their support. They then choose to attack their critics
and release James Carville afid Paul Begala from their slimy
pit in an attempt to smear and discredit their enemies.
Republicans and conservatives are the ones who have
such high standards that whei one of their own makes
them look bad, they condemn and disown them.
It is clear that ultra-liberal Democrats have the lowest
principled and ethical standards. Their failure to make the
distinction that most Americans see them as phonies only
makes Democrats'look even more out of touch.
Americans are tired of being treated like incompetent
fools who can be counted on to forget the past. Liberals are
the ones who forget that when they demean Bush, they also
demean and insult more than half of the American voters
- the ones who cast their ballot for him.
1, for one, do not take kindly to being called an idiot -
especially by brazen, pompous, hypocritical sociopaths.
Let's hope that the Democrats continue their insanity
and nominate Hillary. She would be the only presidential
candidate in history to have a higher negative approval
rating (52 percent) than positive (45 percent). Any Republi-
can should be able to win that election.

God can help rebuild lives in 2008

Just like that, 2008 has arrived.
Some say it is the end of another year. Some say it is only
the beginning. For some, (it's the) same road just a different
outlook.
There are stories we are leaving behind. Stories that made
us what we are now, the stories that made us laugh, smile
for a long time, even stories that no matter how many times
you hear it, still it will make you cry.


Somehow you just keep going... because you see hope.

Miffed by mail clerk

I went in to my local greeting card store/mini-post office
today with a package just before 4 p.m. and was told by the
man at the counter, "We're not taking any more today." I
thought, "Oh well," and walked back to my car to put the


Those who do not suffer from
ADHD shouldn't urge ban on Ritalin

I felt compelled to respond to "Giving drugs is not a
solution."
Is the reader aware that the medications given for


ADHD are stimulants?. Is the reader aware that stimu-
lants behave differently in someone who truly has
ADHD than someone who does not? Did the reader take
time to research the effects of stimulants on the ADHD
individual? If you give a non-ADHD person Ritalin, they
would be bouncing off the walls.
We gave my daughter a cup of tea each day for a week,
her behavior in social and classroom settings was polar
opposite of what she does regularly. Shouldn't that
caffeine have just wired her more? While there is no
blood test to diagnose ADHD, it is pretty evident that
when someone takes a stimulant, it should not calm
them down and help them better control their impulses,
What happens when you don't treat a child with
ADHD?
Well they grow up like me. Quite disorganized in the
brain and in life. My mind goes so fast I can't keep up.
Over the years, I learned to deal with it externally so that
* in the real world I (appear to be) very organized. Alas, I
am not. My brain is in hyperactive overdrive. I don't
drink coffee, I rarely drink tea. I don't take anything in
my life to make this happen.
Oddly, drinking caffeinated beverages over the years
never helped me stay awake. Most often, it would slow
my brain down. Handwriting was horrible throughoi4
school because my hand could not keep up with my !.
brain. I was so thankful in college when I could,use a!"
corriputei for my writing so that my coherent thoughts
could all be captured instead of forgotten as my hands
were still busy capturing the first thought. .
Never got in trouble at school or at home, save one-or
twotimes when I first started school and quickly : t
learned proper behavior. I never rebelled. Yet I struggle
to this day with this problem.
aIunny, you never saw me on the 6 o'clock news doing
any of the heinous acts (the ranter) mentioned.
The reader draws an improper correlation by com-
menting on the "drug addicts, murders, shootouts with
police, child abductions, burglaries, hold ups, shoplift-
ing rings" as if only folks with ADHD who took Ritalin
committed these crimes.
Really ... this one disorder causes all of that?
Please educate yourself because clearly you misun-
derstood something in your psychiatry classes in school.
The reader should feel blessed to have a brain that paces
properly and does not distract easily.
If discipline were the only answer, then I shouldn't be
struggling today as an adult. These are not all my
thoughts on the subject, just what I was able to capture
at this time.

Fireworks ban should be enforced

I want to know why our law enforcement people do not
enforce the fireworks ban.
Our neighbors for years have shot off bottle rockets,
Roman candles and firecrackers. A deputy even came by
this year, but as soon as he left, they pulled out the fire-
works and started shooting again. .......
If they are illegal, why is lawenforcement not stopping
the sale of these fireworks?
Something needs to be done. These were young kids',
popping these firecrackers and shooting the bottle rockets
while the father (stood) by drinking beer.

Why can't United States take care of its own?

I totally agree with the ranter about illegals and resources
and whatnot.
I just started an $8-an-hour job, and my husband isn't
working. If I do well, in three months I will be offered health

insurance but will not be able to afford it.
I recently had a health scare and the
doctor wanted ultrasounds and tests, but
guess what? I had to choose between
paying my mortgage or taking care of my
health. If I'd been an illegal, I'd have
(gotten) the tests done and not worried
because the United States would pick up
the tab.
What has happened to this country
when we cannot even take care of our
own? It is very disheartening, and I pray
daily no one in my family gets seriously ill.
We need to change this.

Anchor babies may subsidize
increasing number of senior
citizens in U.S.

Some countries have no anchor babies.
A baby is only a citizen of the country in-
which he is born if his parents are citizens.
Perhaps someone did the math and
figured out that the anchor babies will
grow up to pay taxes and Social Security.
Perhaps the base needed for the increas-
ing number of seniors who can only be
supported with the influx of immigrants,
legal or otherwise.
True, their parents presently seem to be
crippling the economy with their draw on
the Social Security, educational, medical,
welfare, legal and other services, but
maybe it will balance out somewhere
down the line. Maybe not. I am an English
major, not a math major.

Recycling should be mandatory
in Florida

When my brothers were kids, they use
to get an old grain bag and go picking up
bottles from the side of the road. They
turned them in for deposit.
Maine put back the bottle deposit
several years.ago. I thought kids would
still be picking up the bottles on the
beach and on the side of the road.
Instead, early one morning, I saw seniors
collecting bottles for returns. I had
nothing but admiration for them.
I do think that recycling is smarter than
(having) deposits. Florida should require
all disposable plastics and glass to be
recycled. (There would be) no paper/plas-
tic cartons of milk. No-foil/paper snack
drinks of juice.
Allow only recyclable, materials on the
grocers shelf. I thought that all glass
should be recycled, not just drinks, but
mayonnaise and pickle jars as well.
As for someone taking recycled cans out


of the trash, perhaps he was hard up. We
were taught, "There, but for the grace of
God, go I."

Doesn't see difference between
Communism, taxation

People are still fussing about commu-
nism. What is communism, but working
for the state. With the combined cost of
income tax, sales tax and property tax,
nearly 50 percent of our income is going
to the state.
That is working for the state.

A test offered to bad drivers

(Here is) a test for some bad drivers.
When you have a green arrow to turn
left, do you stay in the left lane after your
turn, or do you go over into the right lane?
If you turn left, you must stay in the left
lane until you can signal your intentions,
the same with turning right, you stay in
the right lane until you show intentions of
moving over.
People e who have the green arrow
turning left into the right lane get lane get mad at
those turning right on red; you are the one
who is in the wrong. Check it out with the
sheriff.
There is nothing more inconsiderate
than two people facing each other and
going to turn left and one doesn't use his
turn signal.

Fire every senator,
representative who ignore
constituents' wishes

When was the Constitution of the
United States changed?
When I was in school many years ago, I
was taught that the Senate and the House
of Representatives were created by the
Constitution. According to the Constitu-
tion, the job description of senators and
representatives was to go to their respec-
tive districts, listen to their constituents
and then vote according to the wishes of
their constituents.
Today, all the senators and representa-
tives do is vote the political party line and
totally ignore their constituents' wishes.
When was the Constitution (rewritten)?
If thq Constitution, was not (rewritten),
then why have "we the people" not stood
up and fired every senator and representa-
tive that has violated (his) Constitutional
responsibility and oath of office?

Owner Michelle Szabo shows off two of the exotic
Tillandsia plants a Mexican Fire Ball and Medusa sold
at What's In Outside, her business on Mapp Road in Palm
City. In addition to the both indoor and outdoor plants
and pottery, the store sells a variety of patio art and
furniture, including Adirondack chairs made of a variety
of materials including recycled plastic rhilk jugs.

'What's In Outside' a haven for green thumbs


side.
The first thing grabbing
your attention as you pull
into the parking lot is a
row of brightly colored
Adirondack chairs. Offer-
ing comfortable contoured
seating without cushions,
the chairs come in a vari-
ety of weather-resistant
and environmentally
friendly materials. One of
these is Balau wood.


"It's a renewable wood
like bamboo but it mimics
teak and weathers the
same," said Michelle
Szabo, who opened the
store with her husband
George in 2003.
Adirondack chairs made
of Balau are less costly
than teak and perfect for
South Florida's humid cli-
mate. What's In Outside
also carries a line of the
chairs in Polly-Wood, a
material made of recycled
milk jugs. Made in Canada,
the chairs are surprisingly
heavy.
"The Polly-Wood furni-
ture lasts forever," Mrs.
Szabo said. "It doesn't fade
or rot,'and it comes in 15


different colors.
In addition to the
Adirondack chairs, you'll
also find tables, chaise
lounges and benches for
your garden, all made of
Polly-Wood.
As you venture through
the numerous nooks and
crannies of the business,
you'll discover countless
distinctive items, includ-
ing hand-painted mailbox-
es, sea-grass planters and
African violet pots, weath-
er-resistant clocks and
thermometers, outdoor
rugs and mats and even
ceramic tile art by
Stephanie Pollack and Dan

Whats In
From page A8


Mackin.
The business started out
primarily with plants, pot-
tery and patio art, Mrs.
Szabo, explained, and
you'll still find a large vari-
ety of both indoor and out-
door plants. The store car-
ries several types of exotic
Tillandsia plants, includ-
ing the ones known as
Medusa and Mexican Fire
Balls, as well as orchids
and bromeliads.
Her expertise, she says,
is with indoor plants,
while Mr. Szabo who
still works as a landscape
designer is the outdoor
plant expert.
"What I'm lacking in, he
makes up for, and vice-
versa," she said. "We make
a great team."
Anyone with questions
about outdoor plants can
come by on Saturdays,
which is the main day Mr.
Szabo works around the
store, she said.
The idea for the business
developed several years
ago when the couple lived
in Palm Beach Gardens
and Mrs. Szabo was trying
to find a turtle-shaped
spigot. She discovered that
they were only available by
catalog and expensive to
ship due to the weight.
'"I thought someone
needs to have a neat store
to sell those kinds of
* things," she said. "We
always said that one day,
we'd have a shop of our
own that carries neat
decor items for the inside
outside, and hence that's
how we came up with the
name of the business."
You'll still find, along
with all the hundreds of
other patio items, a large
rack of decorative spigots,
including, of course, the
turtle ones. And if you
don't see what you like,
don't hesitate to ask. Mrs.
Szabo said they're happy
to do any kind of special
orders on plants or patio
art.


What's In Outside is
located at 3300 S.W. Mapp
Road, just south of the fire
station in Palm City. It's
open Tuesday through Fri-
day from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30
p.m., and on Saturdays
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Matters Of Personal Taste
Home decorating and design aim to
blend beauty and function to create the
most important of personal extensions
-the home. Everything, from the lay-
out of the furniture to the texture of
the draperies, should define this style of
the homeowner. Of course, not every-
one can translate personal taste to
inspired decor without some help. This
is where professional expertise plays a
role in introducing homeowners to
materials, designs, and styles that lead
to a successful and satisfying interpreta-
tion of their own personal tastes. This
process requires a number of basic deci-
sions and countless details that com-
bine to make an aesthetic and function-
al statement. Future columns will pro-
vide information about current trends
in home design that will help guide
your decisions.
We would like to welcome readers to
our new weekly column on home
d&cor. We hope that you will find our
upcoming articles both useful and
inspirational. At our firm, we specialize
in 'green" interiors, because we believe
that it is possible to have a stylish home
that is healthy and earth-friendly at the
same time. We can help with every
aspect of your home, office, or yacht-
decorating project, from furnishings
and fabrics, to windows, color consulta-
tions, and more. Having over 20 years
of experience in residential and com-
mercial decorating we can instruct
you on how to create a healthy and bal-
anced environment through the use of
organic or natural products. iz
Call 772-781-3705 today if you
have any home decorating questions,
or if you'd like to schedule an
appointment
Hint: When painting a room, take your
cues from nature -light ceiling, dark-
er walls and floors darker yet.

ALL CHARGED UPI
To provide the electricity needed to
keep the battery charged, the alter-
nator and the voltage regulator
work in tandem. While the alterna-
tor generates the electrical current
necessary to charge the battery and
power the electrical components as
the engine runs, the voltage regula-
tor controls the amount of current
the alternator produces. Without the
voltage regulator, the amount of
current produced by the alternator
would damage electrical compo-
nents and the battery. Normally, the
alternator and the voltage regulator
are reliable components that pro-
vide trouble-free service. So, if
there is a reduction in current, it is
far more likely that the alternator
drive belt is to blame rather than a
defective alternator or regulator.
At ADVANTAGE FORD OF STUART,
we have the knowledge to properly
repair and more importantly main-
tain your entire electrical system
whether you own a car, truck, or
SUV. We recommend that you get
regular check-ups for your vehicle.
Bring your vehicle to 4000 S.E.
Federal Highway for preventative
maintenance, it will keep your car
running stronger, and longer which
will end up saving you money over
the life of your vehicle. Call
772.781.6540 with questions.
HINT: Because a loose alternator
drive belt can significantly reduce
the current output of the alternator
and cause the battery to run down,
belt tension should be checked
frequently.

exclusive gated communities,
all of which, he says, need
their share oflandscaping and
domestic workers, most of
which lie on the bottom rung
of the financial ladder. These
are the workers that he is see-
ing more of every day.
"The good news is that
we've helped 3,500 families in
2007," Mr. Slattery said. "The
bad news is that we only
helped 42 percent of those
seeking assistance. It's heart-
wrenching not to have the
resources with which to help
them."
The organization receives
the majority of its cash dona-

and its own thrift store sales,
while the food pantry is
stocked from local food collec-
tions. Normally JHOH has
. three to four months of food
on-hand at the beginning of
the year to tide the food pantry
over until organizations such
as the Girl Scouts and National
Association of Letter Carriers
hold their food drives in the
spring. As of Jan. 1, the food
pantry only had a four-to-six
week supply due to increased
demand last year.
Since some of the county's
gated communities have
taken it upon themselves to
hold their own food drives for
the organization, Mr. Slattery
hopes that other neighbor-
hoods, along with churches
and other organizations, will
see the need and lend a help-
ing hand.
Under his directorship,
JHOH has expanded into the
outlying communities by
opening up three other
branches in Jensen Beach,
Hobe Sound and Indiantown.
In addition to the aforemen-


tioned assistance programs,
the organization also reached
out to the impoverished dur-
ing the holidays and helped
out with toys and Christmas
gifts for those who could
afford none. Mr. Slattery even
got a request about 6 p.m. on
Christmas Eve.
"We got a call from an
acquaintance who said she
knew of a Hispanic family that
didn't have money to provide
Christmas presents for the
kids, and they had three chil-
dren," he said.
The director agreed to meet
the woman that night at JHOH
headquarters and they deliv-
ered new bicycles for the older
children and a PIAYSKOOL
workbench for the littlest one.
They even gave the family a
Christmas tree.
"I got the real sense of
Christmas," he said. "It's all
about giving."
The workers and volunteers
at JHOH are trained to screen
all assistance requests careful-
ly in order to be good stewards
of the organization's dona-

Jesus House of Hope execu-
tive director Patrick Slattery
points to the bare shelves of
the organization's food
pantry. The not-for-profit
charitable organization
received 35 percent more
requests for food assistance
in 2007 than the previous
year, resulting in a depletion
of the donated goods. The
JHOH assisted 3,500 families
last year.

tions, Mr. Slattery added.
Applicants must provide
photo identification .and/or
social security cards and
briefly explain their needs and
how they got into their current
economic situation. Once
approved, they are provided
about 25 pounds of staples
and up to 20 articles of cloth-
ing for each family member, if
needed. Help is even provided
with rent or mortgage assis-
tance or for utilities in extreme
circumstances.
Hobe Sound resident Frank
Doyle has been volunteering
at JHOH for more than two
years and also sits on the
board of directors. He calls
volunteering "a privilege" and
says the volunteers get more
out of the experience than the
recipients.
"It's also made me aware of
the hidden needs of Martin
County, especially the working
poor and seniors on fixed
incomes," he said.
His own neighborhood, the
Lost Lake Golf community has
held food drives, but he
encourages other communi-
ties to do the same since the
current demand is outstrip-
ping the organization's ability
to meet area needs. With an
effort from the community, he
added, JHOH could help meet
the challenges of the future.
"We're making their lives a
little easier," he said.

ing break in the seventh grade
playing the dog in a produc-
tion of' "Annie" at Murray Mid-
dle School.
"I really hadn't been in a
play before, but they needed a
dog" he said. "I wasn't into
singing and acting, and I said,
I'll just be the dog."
It was also the first time he
performed .with Katrina.
Though he say's he didn't feel
the same spark she did about
acting what did ignite was
their friendship. The next year
they acted together in "Once
Upon A Mattress" and have
been best friends ever since.
"'Annie' kind of started our
friendship, but that show kind
of brought it all together,"
Christian said.
Since that time, they've per-
formed in several school pro-
ductions, as well as commu-
nity theater shows at the Barn
and Lyric theatres.
"Eco=Kids" was filmed at the
Public Broadcasting Station
in Boynton Beach, WXEL Stu-
dios, and was the first time
that either had acted before a
studio camera and performed
without a live audience. In
addition, they had to learn to
use a teleprompter and stand
for hours in front of a green
screen, a high-tech method in
which they would later be
superimposed on several dif-
ferent backgrounds. They


both said it was physically
exhausting.
"It was hard to stand in
front of a green screen for six
hours," Katrina said. "It's so
different than being in front
of a live audience that, gives
you feedback."
'All that energy gets sucked
into that little hole in front of
you," Christian added, refer-
ring to the camera lens. "It.
was definitely more work."
They were, however some
special perks they both
enjoyed during the several
days they filmed the docu-
mentary.
"We had our own dressing
rooms and we had makeup
artists," Katrina added. "I felt
like a little diva."
Her younger sister Andrea
says she began singing in the
first grade and got her first
real role at age nine as a chi-
huahua in a StarStruck per-
formance of "101 Dalma-
tians" at the Lyric Theatre.
"I wasn't very nervous, just
a little bit, because I learned
from my older sisters," she
said.
She won her first leading
role as Gertrude in "Seussical
The Musical," also produced
by StarStruck.
"I got to be the main star,
and that was very exciting for
me," Andrea said. "I even got
special treatment."
She enjoyed her role as an
anchor for "Eco=Kids," partic-
ularly because there was
room for error, unlike in live


performances.
"It was very different .in
front of a camera-you could
retake it if you need do," she
said. "It's not as scary in front
of the camera because you
know you can get it right."
Andrea is also the only
Murray Middle School ,stu-
dent to have won the right to
compete in The Florida State
Junior Thespians Festival in
Plantation Feb. 15-16. She'll
sing a solo for that statewide
competition, but she said her
real dream for the future is to
go on "American Idol."
"That's been my dream
since about the second
grade," she said.
When the production com-
pany producing "Eco=Kids,"
The Entertainment Group of
both Jensen Beach and Palm
Springs, Calif., wanted to find
the best students to anchor
the show, they turned to the
StarStruck Performing Arts
Studio in Stuart for help.
The studio currently has
more than 200 children and
youth enrolled in various
types of acting, singing and
performing classes, of which
Christian, Katrina and Andrea
take part, as well as perform-
ing in the studio's local pro-
ductions.
Jennifer Jones, who runs
the studio along with her hos-
band, Peter, said she knew the
three would, do well in the
"Eco=Kids" audition.

SAn Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.
Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
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 C
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expecatr
customers


Virtually every car dealer
In Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a
"dealer lee'doc Ifeidealer
prep" fee ranging from $500
to nearly $1,000 This evra
charge is programmed into

Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many,
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the-
""-, dealer fee, but because I was
tOttmers able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new'.
Ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.


of education ahd
sophistication are

your computer II has been made illegal in
many slates including Calfomia 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 lee l$495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago rt was scary Bul I did it because I could
no longer in good conscience, mislead my
customers Just because everybody else
was doing the same Ining did not make it
correct


Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
"clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-


serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy.a car from me,
and not you, And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't,have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart Earl Stewart Tbaoil

It happens just about
every month. I get a
call from a person who
insists his "computer
arbitrarily deleted data."
Usually, the caller has
frantically searched the
recycle bin and has been
unable to find the missing
data or document. Click-
ing all of the shortcuts,
recently used documents
links and history lists just
bring up a message stating
that the referenced file
could not be found. That's
when panic sets in.
By the time I get the call,
the person on the other
end usually has exhausted
all resources he can think
of and perhaps (frustrat-
ing matters worse) spent a
couple hours on the
phone with someone in
India.
In a panic, she starts at
the beginning with me
explaining how she was


just doing what she
usually does when sud-
denly, without warning,
the document she was
trying to.open (or the
folder that contains the
document) just suddenly
disappeared. Poof! No
explanation warning or
indication that anything
was about to happen; it
just plain vanished.
After calmly trying to
reassure the caller that his
data is probably not
deleted, I'm usually then
inundated with a bunch of
explanations about what
they were doing, com-
ments about when the
missing document is due
(along with a description
of the repercussions
should the document be
late) and how he could not
possibly have hit the
delete key in the first
place.
Then I get a play-by-play

SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

recap of his conversation
with tech support, usually
ending in an exasperated
plea for help: "Please, help
me find my data!"
So what's going on? Do
computers just suddenly
decide it's time to delete
your most important file
or folder because it's
spiteful? Has Microsoft
built something into its
ubiquitous operating
systems that causes it to
decide something is
important to you and then
eat it? Hardly.
If we take a close look at
what is happening in the
instant before the data
vanishes, we can usually
determine what happened
and find the missing data.
Most of the time the
scenario goes like this: The
computer operator has
just opened word proces-
sor or some other pro-
gram, gone to the open
dialogue box and then
double clicked the file (or
the folder where the file
resides) when suddenly,
it's not there anymore. It's
just gone. Nothing but the
other folders that were
next to it right before it
disappeared, and some
people may even recall a
quick window popping up
and closing again so fast
they have barely enough
time to read it. Now, the
above scenario can hap-
pen in Word, Excel, Power-
Point or even within an
Explorer window or on the


Windows desktop itself.
The keys to unraveling
this mystery come in the
fact that the last thing the
user tried to do was open
the file (or folder) by
double clicking it.
What's this? Is there
something inherently
wrong with double click-
ing?
Nope. Double clicking is
a perfectly normal part of
operating your computer.
The thing to keep in mind
is that during the double
click process, the pointer
has to be absolutely still
for both clicks. If you move
the mouse during your
double click, the double
click becomes a drag and
drop and that's what
usually happens to the
vanishing data. A quick
look in the folders sur-
rounding where the file
used to be will usually
reveal the missing data.
If you suddenly find
yourself faced with the
mystery-of the vanishing
file, stay calm and start
exploring the folders
immediately next to where
the file used to be. Still
can't find it? You can
always use the built in
Windows search feature
that will allow you to
search the contents of your
drives for any file or folder
using all or part of the file
name. Just don't panic.
This sort of thing
happens all the time and
(contrary to the advice of
many a tech support guy
in India) the last thing you
want to do is run your
system restore disk. That
course of action will pretty
much ensure you never,
ever find your missing file
no matter how confident
the tech support guy
sounds.

IrimIay, FsknirU0w.n1,


Getting the best soil is all in the mix


One of the most
important items for a
successful garden or
landscaping project is the
soil that is used for plant-
ing.
When you visit a local
nursery, there will be a
multitude of choices and
varieties of soils. You will
find potting blends, top
soil, soil with cow manure
and soil with fertilizer
already added, just to name
a few.
Where you plan on
planting your plants will
have a lot to do with which
choice will be best for your
needs.
If you plan on doing
primarily container garden-
ing, use a good quality
potting mix. There are
several brands on the
market in a variety of price
ranges.
Personally, I have had the
best results with Miracle
Gro potting mix. The
product is a blend of soil,
and moisture retaining
amenities to make for an
excellent product.
There are, of course,
other options, such as
Hyponex, Jiffy etc. All these
companies make great
products and often it is just


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook


a personal choice of what
brand works best for you.
At the very least, look for
a soil blend that is light in
consistency and not
sopping wet in the bag.
Using an inferior potting
soil can cause that "dried,
caked up look" after the soil
begins to dry out between
watering cycles.
Unlike food products, soil
manufactures do not have
to list their ingredients on
the bag. If a particular
bargain brand of soil does
not mention what is in the
bag, it is often wise to steer
clear of that option.
Many people like to make


their own mixes by stirring
together different flavors of
soil.
For example, I like to mix
Miracle Gro potting mix
with another soil that
contains cow manure.
Simply use about a 3-to-1
ratio of mix to manure. This
creates an excellent mix for
getting your new plants a
good start when you plant
them. With all the concerns
about water shortages and
restrictions on watering,
you can also add a couple
scoops of plain, old-
fashioned peat moss. The
peat will help the soil retain
the moisture much longer,
thus reducing your water-
ing requirements.
I can still remember in
the old days receiving a
truckload of pure Canadian
peat shipped direct with the
ice and snow still on the
truck. Although harder to
find than it used to be,
some nurseries should still
have it available.
Adding these ingredients
can make your soil drain
better, keep it from caking
and allow more nutrients to
reach the roots of your
plants.
If you are planting in
containers, you might want


to add Perilite so the soil
can breathe. This volcanic
substance (which is actually'
glass) will creates air
pockets in.the soil to make
it lighter and less likely to
cake. The substance also
has good water water-
retention properties.
Perilite also has many
other uses in our daily lives
including being an ingredi-
ent in plasters, mortar and
insulation.
Depending on what type
of plants you use, the pH of
your soil can be an impor-
tant factor. For example, if
you are planting Ixoria or
gardenia, the soil should be
on the acidic side. You can
add aluminum sulphate .to
the soil to increase the pH.
If you are planting a
vegetable garden, you'll
want a lower Ph. Adding
some lime will help sweet-
en the soil and give you
great tasting vegetables.

Rants & Raves
From page A7


Reducing fuel use
means less money for
road improvement
Just a few days (ago), I
read in the news that due to
fewer people traveling fewer
miles on the highways and
byways, revenue from the
gasoline taxes were down.
In fact, they were down
so much that plans to
widen Interstate 95 had to
be downsized due to lack
of money.
At the same time,
Congress raised the
required fuel efficiency of
motor vehicles to ensure
less fuel would be used.
Less fuel used equals kess
in fuel taxes. This means
less money available to
build and repair roads and
bridges.
Do I smell an increase in
fuel taxes to ensure that
there is sufficient money
available for these things?
Smaller cars, more
accidents and more deaths
due to lack of protection?
Maybe the government will
put meters on all vehicles
to tax them by actual miles
traveled.
Big Brother, we welcome
Syou.

Offer no special
rights to illegal
aliens
I cannot believe the
acceptance of Spanish
being spoken here and
already stores, restaurants
and television stations are
catering to Hispanics by
promoting that language
in signs, advertisements
and on television.


Do we want to be like
Miami or Fort Lauderdale,
where all you hear is
Spanish spoken? What
better place to learn a
language than in the
country where it is spo-
ken? This is wrong and will
cost us tax money at the
polls, in schools and
hospitals.
As Theodore Roosevelt
wrote in 1907: "In the first
place, we should insist
that if the immigrant
comes here in good faith,
becomes an American and
assimilates himself to us,
he should be treated on an
exact equality, but this is
predicated upon the man's
becoming in very fact an
American, and nothing
but an American. There
can be no divided alle-
giance here. Any man who
says he is an American,
but something else also
isn't an American at all. We
have room but for one flag
and this is the American
flag. We have room for but
one language here, and
that is the English lan-
guage and we have room
but for one sole loyalty
and that is the American
people."
Also, Sen. (Samuel)
Hayakawa made it plain
that we are diverse by


many cultures but united
by one language. We have
always considered our-
selves a melting pot, not a
salad as the Miami His-
panics like to call them-'
selves.
People being offended
when called an illegal
alien is ludicrous, (since)
that is what they are.


Calling them an "undocu-
mented immigrant" is like
calling a drug dealer an
"unlicensed pharmacist."
There must be no
amnesty, no drivers
licenses, no Social Securi-
ty or special aid. They
must have a sponsor who
will be responsible until
they are established.

With hundreds of islands, Bahamas


has something for everyone


The Bahamas is a
country of 700
different islands and
cays, stretching southeast
off the Florida coast.
Visitors won't find more
interesting islands. The
islands differ physically:
pine forests, white sandy
beaches, limestone caves,
lush plantations, bone
fishing flats and the world's
third largest barrier reef.
They differ historically:

Seminole Indians from
Florida, Eleutheran adven-
turers from England, post-
Revolutionary planters
from Carolina and pirates
all settled there.
Because each island
retains its individual
character, each has some-
thing unique and unexpect-
ed to contribute to an
island vacation. There are
islands so secluded, only
the lighthouse keeper has a
telephone; islands with
everything from casino to
golf courses; islands for the
country-club set, where
tennis overlooks mile-long
beaches; islands bustling
with colonial charm;
islands for frogmen and
fisherman.

Grand Bahama Island
Situated 100 miles off the
Florida coast, Grand
Bahama Island is a tourism
center offering great
beaches, crystal clear water,
excellent offshore diving,
resort hotels, casinos, golf
courses and shopping
bazaars.
It is the fourth largest
island in the Bahamian
archipelago and has more
than 660 miles of beaches
and stretches nearly 100
from east to west, but is
only 17 miles across at its
widest point.

Nassau
Thjs island has a seem-
ingly endless white sand
beach where you can relax
in the shade of coconut
palms. The crystal-clear
water and the multicolored
tropical fish are definitely
something to see.
You'll enjoy the graceful
gestures of the uniformed
"bobbies" directing traffic
in the bustling downtown.
Nassau will delight you
in many ways: the colorful
Colonial architecture,

warmth of its people and
infectious music of steel
drums. It's very likely you'll
leave this happy place with
lots of duty-free gifts and
mementos and at least one
straw hat.

Freeport.
Where Nassau is a blend
of the old and new,
Freeport/Lucaya is a
modernistic, planned city. It
is situated on the Bahamas'
second most popular
tourist destination: the.
Island of Grand Bahama.
Freeport is the resort
center, where the action
can be found. On the
eastern and western ends of
the island are serene and
quaint settings. Finding
hide-away spots is not
uncommon.
Shopping is also a feature
as one can stroll through
Port Lucaya and discover
treasures from around the
world.
For those into nature,
Grand Bahama is also home
to one of the oldest under-
water cave systems in the
world, situated at the
Lucayan National Park.

Bimini
This tiny island is set
amidst a magnificent blue .
sea. Bordered by the warm


waters of the Gulf Stream
and by the Great Bahama
Bank, Bimini has tradition-
ally been referred to as the
big-game fishing capital of
the world.
Discovered by Ponce de
Leon in 1512 while search-
ing for the fountain of
youth, Bimini has long
remained a popular desti-
nation for adventurers of all
types. Pirates and rumrun-
ners took refuge here.
Ernest Hemmingway made
it a favorite retreat in the
1930s. Thousands more
have come to catch prized
game fish, explore the
undersea world or simply
do nothing at all.
Alice Town is at the center
of most of Bimini's activity.
Everything is nearby, so
walking is. the usual method
of getting place to place.
Restaurants specialize in
local seafood and other
dishes. Shopping consists
of duty-free liquors and
perfume, native artwork,
and a Bahamian straw
market featuring a wide
variety of souvenirs. Several
bars and nightspots,
complete with island
music, provide upbeat
nightlife.

Eleuthera
Three hundred years ago
a smallband of English
pilgrims, seeking religious
freedom, landed on this
island and gave it its name,
which means "freedom" in
Greek. The name seems to
be as apt today as it was
then.
Eleuthera delivers on its
initial promise by bestow-
ing its gifts upon the lucky
who've stumbled upon it, or
the smart who know to go
there. Miles of glistening
pink and white sand
beaches, serene colonial
villages and rolling acres of

Newsletters promote health


information you can use


Last week's column
dealt with some of the
interesting informa-
tion I've accumulated in the
last few months and this
week's will give more food
for thought about heart
disease arthritis pain and
still another health risk
from smoking.
From the Tufts Universi-
ty Health & Nutrition
Letter, December 2007
Extra vitamin D is linked
to lower death risk.
Several studies have now
indicated that people who
take vitamin D supplements
have a lower risk of death
from any cause.
Scientists have known for
some time that vitamin D is
good for the bones, but now
there is a growing body of
evidence that vitamin D.
helps protect against a
variety of illnesses, includ-
ing cancer, heart disease
and diabetes.
One study found that the
average U.S. daily intake of
vitamin D in winter, when
the sun isn'tout as much, is
only 230 IU daily, far below
the amount that seemed to
reduce the risk of certain
cancers.
Researchers at the
University of California-San
Diego found that cancer
rates seem to fall with
higher vitamin D levels. It's
not known why vitamin D
has protective properties; it
may prevent some cancer
cells from reproducing or it
may boost the immune
system. The take-away
message is that you should
speak to your doctor about
whether taking additional
vitamin D is the right thing
for you.
From the Tufts Universi-
ty Health & Nutrition


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
Letter, November 2007
Women at risk for heart
disease or stroke get
benefits from fruits and
vegetables, not antioxidant
supplements.
Women who are at risk
for cardiovascular disease,
either because they had
had a heart attack or stroke
or were at risk for having
them, had more benefit
from getting protective
antioxidants from fruits and
produce than from supple-
ments. Fruits and vegeta-
bles contain nutrients, such
as vitamin C and E and beta
carotene, which seem to
protect the heart.
Women who took pills
containing the nutrients
*instead of eating the fruiis
and vegetables did not get
the same benefits, and
experts speculate that a
single pill doesn't reflect the
complex nutrients and
vitamins in foods.
In other word, if you pop
a vitamin or supplement,
you are missing out on the
benefits and lightening
your wallet.
From the UCLA School
of Medicine's Health Years
newsletter
Smoking may reduce the


effectiveness of certain
drugs.
Certain medications
interact negatively with
substances in cigarette
smoke. Researchers found
that hydrocarbons in
smoke may interfere with
drugs such as Clozaril,
Luvox, Theo-Dur,
Bronkodyl and inhaled
corticosteroids used to
control asthma.
Smokers may require a
higher dose of medication
than non-smokers. If you
are a smoker or have quit
smoking, talk to your
doctor about whether you
need to adjust your dosage
up or down.
From the Duke Univer-
sity School of Medicine's
HealthNews, December
2007
The Food and Drug
Administration has
approved the first-ever
prescription gel to treat
arthritis in the knees and
hands. Voltaren gel con-
tains the same non-
steroidal anti-inflammatory
drug, NSAID, found in the
oral Voltaren. The-new gel
cuts pain and may be safer
than the oral treatment.
The most common side-
effect was a skin reaction. It
was not evaluated for use
on other joints.
If you are taking the oral
medication, or other
medications that have side
effects, talk to your doctor
about the gel.

Redeemer graduates

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

A group of fifth graders at
Redeemer Lutheran School
recently graduated from the
D.A.R.E. program.
D.A.R.E. is a police offi-
cer-led series of classroom
lessons that teaches chil-
dren from kindergarten
through twelfth grade how
to resist peer pressure and
live productive drug and
violence-free lives. Officer
Daniel Pantel of the Stuart
Police Department led the
students through the pro-
gram.
At the end of the program


each student submitted an
essay recounting what they
learned and why they
pledged to stay away from
drugs and alcohol.
The essay winners were
Blake Behrsin and Lauren
Ruby. They were presented
with DA.R.E. gear from
Officer Pantel. The stu-
dents were also treated to a
visit by Officer David Duran
and his K-9 partner Cody.
All the graduates were
then presented with certifi-
cates and D.A.R.E. t-shirts.
They also had a skating
party at YMCA Sportsworld
in Stuart.

EARL STEWART
On Cars

Last September, I wrote
a column for this
newspaper entitled
"The Internet Price is the
Lowest Price for a New
Car." If you missed that,
you can read all of my
columns at www.EarlStew-
artOnCars.com.
Although I still believe
you can find your best price
on the Internet, I thought
that I should write another
column to stress how
careful you must be in
determining whether or not
you have a real, bottom-
line, out-the-door price.
The reason that a dealer
always tries to post his
lowest new car price on the
Internet is simple. If he
doesn't, the Internet
shopper will simply ignore
the price quote and buy
from another dealer who
has a lower price.
A car dealer gets "just one
chance" to sell you a car
when he puts his price out
on the Internet. The
Internet is theoretically the
purest and best form of a
competitive marketplace,
favoring the buyer.
Think about it. If you
wanted to take the time,
you could get a price quote
from every Honda, Toyota
or Ford dealer in the U.S.
There are about 1,300
Toyota dealers in the U.S. It
might take you awhile
(about eight days if you
worked eight hours a day

per e-mail), but you sure
would know who was
selling your selected model
Toyota for the lowest price.
Whether you are reading
newspaper ads, watching
TV ads, reading direct mail
advertising or surfing car a
dealer's Web site, you have
to be careful of deception.
Internet advertising on car
dealer's Web sites and their
Internet price quotes can be
more deceptive than other
media. This is because the
Internet is the "new fron-
tier." Legislation has not
caught up with the Internet
like it has newspaper, TV
and radio advertising. A
dealer can get away with a
lot more on his Web site and
price quotes than he can in
a newspaper ad. Electronic
media and newspaper
advertising are also a lot
more visible to the regula-
tors than the Internet.
I'll give you an example of
the type of violation you
must be wary of.
There's a car dealer in
West Palm Beach who
quotes prices to his cus-
tomers over the Internet
excluding $699.95 for a
"dealer fee" plus $199.95 for
a "doc fee." This totals
$899.90 in a surprise price
increase when you come
into the dealership to pick
up your car. The written
warning you have is an
asterisk denoting some fine
print at the bottom of the
Internet quote that says
*plus tax, tag and fees. The
"fees" mean $899 in
additional price and profit
to the dealer on top of the
price you were quoted.
As if this practice isn't
bad enough, many people
come in, sign the papers
and drive their new car
home without even realiz-
ing that they paid an extra


$899.90 because it is
hidden in the voluminous
paperwork that you sign
rapidly in the dealer's
finance office.
Your defense against this
sort of thing is to call those
dealers who have given you
the lowest price quotes on
the vehicle you want to buy.
Start with the lowest price
and simply ask, "Is there
anything else added to my
price other than Florida
sales tax and a state fee for
a license tag or tag trans-
fer?"
If they do add something,
find out specifically what so
that you know you have an
out-the-door, bottom-line
price when you come in to
take delivery. If they won't
give you a clear answer or
are ambiguous hang up
and call the next dealer.
Dealers who advertise
deceptively have the
philosophy that all that
counts with their advertis-
ing is to "get them in the
door."
Another slang dealers use
for this is, "driving floor
traffic." They calculate that
if they can trick enough
people to come through the
door, they will be able to
fool a certain percentage of
them.
It's like Abraham Lincoln
said, "You may fool all the
people some of the time,
you can even fool some of
the people all of the time,
but you cannot fool all of
the people all of the time."
Well these dealers don't
have to fool all of the
people to make lots of
money. All they have to do
is fool some of the people
all of the time and that's
exactly what their advertis-
ing is designed to do. Don't
be one of those who are
fooled.

house 81 boats, but resi-
dents of the neighboring
condo are fighting the
expansion, claiming it will
tower over some of their
units and lower property
values.
The- proposed building
would sit only 32 feet from
the condo wall, and the resi-
dents had wanted the mari-
na bwner to; move the
building to '-the opposite
side of Montere\ Road, an
idea that was rejected. The
owners did offer to design
the building so that it
would overlook Monterey
Road rather than the de la
Bahia complex.
Several people did show


up to speak out in favor of
the marina expansion,
mainly boaters and those
employed in the marine
industry.
The lawyer representing
the owners, the Biggs fam-
ily of Palm City, said they
were willing to work with
the condo .residents and
wanted to be good neigh-
bors. The commission
agreed to delay a vote on
the new site plan for the
expansion so that the two
sides could meet and try
to work out their differ-
ences.
The commission will
revisit the Riverwatch
expansion issue on March 4.

"These are kids who are
born with raw talent, and to
be able to train them and,
hone their skills is just a bless-
ing," she said.
Mr. Jones is professional
voice and piano coach, while
Mrs. Jones has a background
in community and profes-
sional theater. Together they
help nurture budding local
talent in their 5,000-square-
foot facility on Southeast
Dixie Highway.
Michael, a Jensen Beach
resident and eighth-grader at
Stuart Middle School, has
been performing live since he
was eight. "He said he was
selected to co-anchor the ele-
mentary version of
"Eco=Kids" because he had
previous worked with
Christopher and Linda Lewis,
the owners of The Entertain-
ment Group, on another proj-
ect.
When his family moved to
Martin County from Coconut
Creek six years ago, his moth-
er enrolled him in a summer
camp so he could more
quickly make new friends. It
was there that he performed
in his first show, "Into The
Woods," and discovered his
new-found passion for acting.
Even so, he was scared the
first time he took the stage
before a live audience.
"The first thing I said in the
theater (before the show) to
my mom was, 'I think I'm
going to throw up,'" he said.


'And I never wanted to leave
after that."
He said he enjoyed the
experience co-anchoring the
project with Andrea but
emphasized the big differ-
ence between stage acting
and performing before a
camera.
"The thing is, with theater,
everything is so much more
elaborate, with more hand
gestures, but with TV it's more
conversational," he said.
"With (stage) acting, I'd be
projecting more."
In order to better learn the
difference between live and
televised acting, Michael
recently took a course in Fort
Lauderdale, during which
instructors taught him to
"calm it down and talk like I'm
talking to a friend," he said.
He also auditioned for a TV
commercial on Jan. 24 and
hopes to soon break into tele-
vision as well as work in live
theatre.
"They're both great for me
and hopefully I can keep
doing this."
Mrs. Lewis explained that
"Eco=Kids" is designed to
make students more aware of
conservation and how they,
as individuals, can make a dif-
ference to the ecology of the
planet. She said the four
young anchors chosen for the
project were remarkable. .
"In this case, all four of the
kids were very disciplined
and a pleasure to work with,"
she said. "We worked with
them every night for about
eight or nine nights, and they
were exceptional."

munity are going to be
objecting because they are
being laid off or cut back
and not getting golden
parachutes."
Commissioner Weber-
man attempted to get his
fellow commissioners to
vote to put a $35,000 cap on
the plan and make it
unavailable to senior man-
agement, but his motion
died for lack of a second.
Sheriff Robert Crowder was
then called up to the podi-
um to give his insight on the
implementation of a similar
early retirement plan by the
sheriff's office. He encour-
aged the commission to act
quickly and not delay the
plan's implementation in
the light of declining tax
revenues.
"The longer you wait in
this budget, the less money
you'll have to do it with," he
said. "Time is of the
essence."
With the Sheriff's plan, a
total of four command-staff
employees were offered
early retirement, but only
two accepted. That resulted
in his department saving up
to $250,000 in combined
salaries and benefits,
according to a Sheriff's
Office spokesperson.


Sheriff Crowder encour-
aged commissioners to nix
the salary cap idea.
"I doubt that you'll have
many takers with a $35,000
cap," he said.
Mr. Ballantyne, said he's
implemented early retire-
ment programs twice before
in other communities and
that such a plan enables a
municipality to better reor-
ganize.
"It opens up opportuni-
ties to be able to eliminate,
positions, consolidate posi-
tions and even transfer peo-
ple that you want to keep to
another position," he said.
"This leaves a more capable
and spirited organization
afterwards, and results in
higher, long-term perform-
ance for the community."
He explained that the
early retirement plan would
be open to any employee
who's eligible with the Flori-
da Retirement System and
has six years or more of
service with the county.
Commissioners decided
to postpone making a deci-
sion, instead asking Mr. Bal-
lantyne and his staff to meet
with Sheriff Crowder to
improve the plan before
coming back to the com-
mission on Feb. 5.

People must pay to use

"It's more about humor,"
he said. "It's a rousing good

Sunrise Theatre.

Jay and the Americans


Band reunites, delights


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer

It's not too early to think
about Valentine's Day, and
the Sunrise Theatre has the
perfect double-bill if you
want to say it in song.
Jay and the Americans
and The Buckinghams
perform on Feb. 14. Jay
Reincke, the third "Jay," and
Sandy Deane, one of the
three remaining "Ameri-
cans," spoke by phone
about the concert.
There have actually been
three "Jays." John Traynor,
nicknamed Jay, was the first,
with original members
Sandy Deane, Howie Kane
and Marty Sanders.
Jay Black, whose real
name was David Blatt,
fronted for the group from
1962-1971, when most of
their big hits, including
"Cara Mia," "Only in
America," "Come a Little Bit
Closer," and "This Magic
Moment," were recorded.
The band did not perform
for thirty-some years, and
when Deane, Kane and
Sanders re-formed the
group, they found Reincke,
who had been performing
Jay and the Americans'
songs in Chicago for years.
Although his real first
name is John, he's always
been called Jay, and he


became the new face of the
band.
For Mr. Deane, whose
Brooklyn basement was the
birthplace for the band, the
second time around is
sweeter.
"It's fun," he said. "We're
singing for the second time
after 35 years not together.
We missed a lot of things the
first time when we were
young and crazy. Now we
sight-see and look around.
We used to just party. We
don't remember most of the
first time around. We're also
seeing it through the eyes of
Jay, who didn't see it the first
time. We're getting off on
his trip as well as our own
and on his exuberance."
For Jay Reincke, singing
with this band is a dream
come true.
"One of my fondest
memories is being in sixth
grade in 1965, and 'Cara
Mia' was being played," he
said. "I was just getting into
music, and there's this
fabulous group that was my
favorite. Now, 40 years later,
I'm Jay."
Mr. Deane says that the
audiences are wonderful,
and come in all ages.
"We have groupies who
throw their walkers at us,"
he jokes. "Then we have
fans that are so young, I
have T-shirts older than


them. It's nice. There's
nothing negative about it.
This is a chance for parents
to show that there is classic
music that they can enjoy
that's not hip-hop or rap.
Valentine's Day with us is
fabulous. Every song has
meaning. When we sing
'Cara Mia,' I think of all the
couples. It's romantic.
"At the end of the show,
we talk to people, and we
like to hear how excited
people are that the group is
back together. They say 'We
sawyou in 1966.' It took us
40 years to get back, and it's
incredible to see how
excited they are," he said.
Mr. Reincke is thrilled to
be a part of the magic of the
moment.
"We get along so well, you
can tell on stage that we're
having a good time. You
can't fool an audience. It's a
kick to be on stage and
think it's the original guys.
How cool is that?"
Only in America.

Jay and the Americans
and The Buckinghams
perform at the Sunrise
Theatre, 117S. Second St.,
Fort Pierce, on Feb. 14 at 8
p.m. Tickets are $45; call the
box office at (772) 461-4775

New ways with mushrooms,


'secret' to deep frying them


HTello, smart shoppers.
Today I'm writing
about mushrooms.
The ones most familiar to
us are the button mushrooms
sold in the supermarket.
Mushrooms are unique. They
can be grilled, stuffed, pickled
or deep-fried.
For years, I tried to make
deep-fried mushrooms.
Invariably, the breading
would drop off in frying.
Finally, I found the answer.
Years ago, my son Guy was
in a restaurant, where he was
friends with the chef. While
he was chatting with his
friend in the kitchen, he
noticed what was he cooking:
fried mushrooms. Guy asked
a few questions and then
immediately called me to tell
me "the secret." I've included
it in my recipe, which follows.
Portobello mushrooms are
great on the grill. Yqu can slice
and marinate them in Italian
dressing or let them sit a while
in a mixture of olive oil, garlic
powder and soy sauce.
Large white button
mushrooms are wonderful
stuffed and served as a side
dish. Add some meat and
they become a main course.
Mushrooms cooked in a
light tomato sauce will have
everyone asking for more.
Mushrooms are low in
calories and fat, and choles-
terol free. What you do with
them determines the out-
come.
Enjoy. See you next week.
Note to readers: When you
write to me with a recipe
request, include a business-
size, self-addressed, stamped
envelope.

Shake mushrooms in flour
mixture, dip in egg wash and
roll in breadcrumb mixture.
Place on a cookie sheet and
freeze (this is the secret) for at
least one hour. Fry in oil until
golden. Drain on paper

too late to learn and apply
fresh new ideas.
Libra-Sept. 23-Oct 22
You have learned a lot about
yourself and others recently.
You continue to grow. Hold
fast to your new visions and
dreams. Help them take root
by doing daily affirmations and
devotions. Then share your
new gifts with others who feel
your spirit of truth. You are a
positive force to be reckoned
with. You have made it this far.
There is still a long way to go.
Enjoy the ride.
Scorpio-Od. 23-Nov.21
Try not to analyze things so
much. Much life force can be
wasted by over thinking. Stick
to the basics. Life's concerns
always work out in divine
order for the higher good of all
when you go with the flow.
Stay focused on placing your
ideas into action instead of
,thinking about them. This
keeps you moving forward
and greatly decreases stress.
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Slow down a little. It's better
to do a few things well than
many mediocre. You some-
times overshoot' the goal


line. When new adventures
come your way, select the
most important ones first.
The moon in Sagittarius
gives you an emotional
boost. If it isn't fun, don't
start it. You are always
responsible. Let's have a lit-
tle fun for a change.

learning involves your pur-
pose and place in life and
how to manage it. All great

deal with downturns in life are
the most important. It's easy
to keep smiling when things
are rosy. You have learned
how to deal with it all.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Don't turn away from adversi-
ty. Look at it as a way to grow
emotionally and spiritually. Be
fearless and stand up for your
beliefs. If you don't, the world
will drain your energy. Don't
be too easy. Say, "This is my
life, thank you. I'm going to do
what I feel is right" Then take
action. You will see positive
results happen.

What are you doing to make your life better?


Tou don't have to have a
college education to
create and run your
own "practice of life."
It's not whether we were
born of privilege, royal
blood, education, posses-
sions or experience. It's
not what we think or say,
it's what we do with what
we have that makes us
who we are.
You were born to do
something great with your
life. This understanding is
all we need to create a
great and useful life, free
to be all we came here to
be.
So you were rejected by
parents, others or the
world? Get over it. Life is
valuable. Move on and
create a strong, healthy,
abundant and happy life.
This is your divine her-
itage and reason for being.
We are all given this
opportunity at birth. The
greater the challenges, the
greater the potential. You
can only blame parents,
mates or others for misfor-
tunes for so long. Sooner
or later we have to take
responsibility for our own
life and become a "victor"
rather than a "victim."
Move beyond your
anger, feeling sorry for
yourself and a "poor me"
attitude. There is a far
better way to live.
Let's say you want to
build a house. You have
this large pile of building
materials sitting out in the
yard. If you don't have the


right tools, know how to
use them and keep them
sharp, you can't build the
house. Life is no different.
We all at birth are given
this tremendous amount
of raw life force, talent and
potential for unique
greatness. What is this raw
material? It is the inspired
ideas in the mind and the
powerful desires in the
heart. It's the passions in
the soul and the physical
energy and strength to
shape them into created
forms, unique to yourself.
Every human soul at birth
is given this potential. Life
is sacred and valuable.
What are you doing with
yours?
We either live by duality
in the mind or unity in the
soul. The way of the outer
willful self is based on a
win or lose mentality
where the ego rules and
we live in pride or fear.
Lack overcomes us when
we live in fear or have
doubt, indecision or
unrealistic expectations.
The soul or magnetic
center is based on a
different principle. The
universe, or spirit world, is
based on the abundance
of all things. The soul says
the outcome is win, win,
win. Everyone emerges a
winner when we live by
spirit. There are no losers
in the great circle of life
and love.
The way we get to it is to
begin to follow our heart
rather than the head. Take


JAMES TUCKI
The Spirit Guidi


the plunge. Go inside and
listen to this great "inner
guidance." If you don't
love what you are doing,
don't do it. The key to
mastery is practice.
There are many 7-foot
tall basketball players.
There are few superstars.
Michael Jordan used to
show up at the Chicago
arena around 4 a.m. He
suited up, went out on the
court around 4:30 a.m.
and began to practice all
his sky hooks and shots
and psyched himself up
until he was moving on
instincts and reactions,
not thoughts. He was
competing with himself.
The other players began
to straggle in around 7
a.m., looking like they
were doing someone a
favor by being there.
When the game started,
Michael, working on
instincts and reactions,
made the impossible plays
look easy to others, who


not as conditioned, could
only watch and envy.
I How much do you
practice your skills? I
challenge you. Take a good
look at your inner happi-
ness and conditioning. Are
you doing what you want
to do in life? Or do you let
the world or negative
S attitudes rule you through
guilt or fear?
Don't put up with a
mediocre life. It's your life.
Respect is the foundation
e for love and personal
ornwth The onlv wayv we


get respect is to set limits
and learn to say no when


we've had enough.
You were born with
genius in your soul. Take
command of your own life.
Then surrender it to the
higher power and let the
universe work for you and
through you. Ask it to
bring you your higher
good. You have it in you.
Actions speak louder than
words. Go for it. Bring
your potential out and set
it free. You can do it. It's
been inside you since
birth.
The first step is to follow
your heart. I know you
want it. Then, when you
have achieved all these
wonderful things in your
life, take care of your own
and family needs first.
Then give back to your
spirit guides and others
who inspire you. Help
them keep going.
You are now the light.

Martin County B11


Boys get kicks at district


BY TOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer

After some stellar regular
season performances, several
area teams kicked it up a
notch in the district tourna-
ment and advanced in the
playoffs, while other teams
got the boot and are headed
home.
Perhaps the most dominat-
ing display was put forth by
Jensen Beach. Looking for its
fourth consecutive crown, the
Falcons took on Suncoast in
the semifinals and extended
its season another day with a
6-0 shutout.
Jensen Beach received con-
tributions from several
sources, including Kevin Fitz-
patrick and Ian Weber, who
each tallied two goals.
Edvin Worley and Laine
Kelly each added scores while
Worley and Fitzpatrick both
chipped in two assists.
The win put Jensen Beach
at 7-0 all-time in district play,
outscoring its opponents by a,
44-3 margin.
TWo days later, the Falcons
(13-5-1) took on Forest Hill for
the 14-4A title. Forest Hill
advanced to the champi-
onship with a surprising 6-0
win over top-seeded Okee-
chobee, which had been rid-
ing a 14-game unbeaten
streak.
Hoping for its second con-
secutive. upset, Forest Hill
broke out on top with an
unassisted goal from the left
side in the eighth minute.
"They had a fluke goal,"
Jensen Beach head coach
Charles Rosseau said. "We
had a breakdown defensively.

Titanic
From page B 10
was instrumental in the 69-
56 victory over West Boca
Raton, as the Indiantown
native had 13 rebounds
and five assists to help lead
his team.
"It's been a great oppor-
tunity," Harris said. "When
I first started I really didn't
know how to run that posi-
tion (point guard).
"He (McIntyre) told me
what I was capable of
doing.
"Now, when I go out on
the floor, I look out for my
other teammates first.
When it's time for me to
step it up, I step it up."
Harris did just that in
Martin County's win over
Summit Christian on Jan.
23. With the Tigers down by
one with 10.3 seconds in
the game, he took a pass
from Nelson and laid it in
just before the buzzer to
give Martin County a 72-71
win.
"Ronnie and Tia made a
play," McIntyre said. "It
feels good (being 18-1)."
Despite his offensive
prowess Harris also
scored 17 more points with
six assists in the Tigers'
recent win over South Fork
it's his defense that Har-
ris wants to be known for.
"I take pride in my
deferise more than my
offense," Harris said. "I
have to step up more on
defense."
Still, his buzzer beater
againstVero Beach is one
Harris will remember for a
long time.
"I felt like I was on top of
the world," Harris said.

"We had to do a little gut
check."
The Falcons rebounded
quickly, getting a goal on a
header by Fitzpatrick.
"We countered two min-
utes later," Rosseau said. "I
knew we were in for a fight. I
told them (the team) that at
halftime.
"The game was edgy. There
were cards issued. It was an
intense battle."
After coming out of the
locker room tied at one, the
Falcons showed why it is a
contender for a state crown,
while for a night at least; For-
est Hill simply was a pre-
tender.
Worley quickly put Jensen
ahead for good with a shot off
the goalkeeper's hands in the
42nd minute. Shortly after
that, it was Worley again with
an assist from team co-cap-
tain Laine Kelly.
The phenom completed
the hat trick in the 50th
minute, giving the forward a
reason to celebrate along with
his birthday cake.
"Edvin is a game changer,"
Rosseau said. "He's an amaz-
ing athlete.
"He has a great touch on the
ball and a great knack of judg-
ing his opponent.
"When the ball is at his feet,
anything is possible. Ule is fun
to watch and fun to coach."
Worley's effort was part of a
scoring barrage where Jensen
Beach scored six goals in 15
minutes to put the game
away.
"No coach expects that,"
Rosseau said. "When it hap-
pens, you don't get upset
about it."


While goals were aplenty in
Jensen's contest they were
scarce as snow in the Saint
Edward's-Benjamin matchup.
Despite two hard-fought wins
over Benjamin during the reg-
ular season, the Buccaneers
had hopme-field advantage, as
well as possibly holding a psy-
chological edge, having oust-
ed Saint Edward's from the
district finals three out of the
last four years.
Despite scoring two goals in
each of the wins over Ben-
jamin, the Pirates couldn't
find the net in regulation nor
overtime. Fortunately, for
Saint Edward's neither did
Benjamin and the game had
to be decided in a shootout.
Each team was good on
four of five penalty kicks in the
first round. Saint Edward's
(15-1-2) had an opportunity
to win on the sixth after Ben-
jamin failed to convert. Den-
ton Kitchell nailed it, and the
Pirates had its first district
crown since 1989, ending a
streak of six consecutive loss-
es in the district finals.
The win, which followed
another 1-0 victory for Saint
Edward's over Jupiter Christ-
ian in the semifinals, added to
the Pirates' 16-game unbeat-
en streak, which it will carry
into the Region 4-2A quarter-
finals.
While Saint Edward's nar-
rowly escaped with a victory,
two other area teams Vero
Beach and Martin County -
were on the opposite side of
one-goal contests in their
respective district finals.

Latest news from this year's PGA Merchandise Show


he best week of 2008
has drawn to a close.
My week with the
"gang" at the 2008 PGA
Merchandise Show in
Orlando is over. My time
may have been hectic,
running to-and-fro, but I
will slow things down a bit
as I tell you our story.
The week began in proper
fashion traveling to the
north end of Orlando and
the Legacy Course at Alaqua
Lakes. Here my colleague,
Dan Shube and I would get
our week started on the
right foot by playing in the
Tour Edge multi-media golf
event.
We were two of many
writers who dropped into
town a couple days prior to


the show's opening to get in
a little golf, gather informa-
tion on new products and
properly set our minds for
the task at hand.
In addition to golf, we
were treated to demonstra-
tions and hands-on testing
of products from Tour Edge,
Medicus, Sun Mountain, Sky
Golf, Etonic, Q-Link, AHead
and Check & Go.
We even met Gary
Sherrell, a finalist on The
Golf Channel's "Fore
Inventors Only" show and
his Club Glider travel bag.
Tour Edge introduced us
to several new products.
The company's Exotic line
continues to grow and this
year we tried two new
drivers, new fairway woods

Sky Golf showed off its
newest hand-held GPS
units. The latest designs are
much smaller than the
original models and have a
plethora of features. The
company has mapped more
than 90 percent of the
courses in the United States.
Sun Mountain showed us
the latest line of rain jackets,
lightweight carry bags and
the new Club Glider.
Anyone who travels should
look into getting one of
these great new travel bags.
The wheeled legs flip out,
allowing the bag to glide
along with you in a more
upright position, saving
your back while moving
around the airport or in line.
In the afternoon we
enjoyed a round of golf,
testing the new products
from Tour Edge and Exotics
on many holes. Last year we
came in tied for first. Such
was not the case this year as
we struggled our way
around. However, we had a


great time.
After enjoying some fine
food, cigars and beverages
after our round, we were off
to our home for the week.
Over the years, I have
found that the better the
place I find to put up my
feet, the better my coverage
of the show. This year was
no exception. Our host
resort was Oakwater Resort
just off Highway 192 in
Kissimmee.
Oakwater is one of many
resorts in the Orlando area
featuring property managed
by Global Resort Homes
(www.globalresorthomes. co

was located conveniently to
shopping, golf, the inter-
state and just west of Disney
World.

travelW ith a family and with
rates starting at just $79 per
night it's quite inexpensive
as well.
I cannot stress enough the
need to have a place to rest
our weary bones after a day
of playing golf, testing new
equipment or walking the
miles of aisles at the show.
That hot tub beside the
heated pool was a blessing.
For relaxing, we had a
huge 50-inch HD television
to catch up on the news and
golf from around the world.
Our room even came with
free wireless Internet,
allowing us to use our


laptops to check e-mail,
handle banking chores back
home and so forth.
That was only the begin-
ning of the week.
Wednesday we spent time
at Callaway's media event,
hit the demo day and tested
even more clubs and
accessories. Then the show
itself began on Thursday.
Between Thursday and
Sunday morning, I walked
too many miles to count, hit
more clubs than ever,
enjoyed fantastic meals and
some great company. In all,
it was one spectacular week.
Over the next several
weeks I'll take you with me
as I relive the 2008 PGA
Merchandise Show.
Perhaps you'll discover a
club or accessory that will
help you to more enjoy the
game.
For now that is all, because
I need some rest before I
return to my "real" job in the
morning.

Kicks
From page B1 1

la in the District 6-6A semifi-
nals, the Indians fell a little
short in its contest with Mel-
bourne.
After trailing 2-0 most of the
way, Vero Beach (13-6-4) got
on the board with a minute
left in the game on Jordan
Turner's comer kick, but
couldn't find the equalizer as
time expired.
Despite the loss, Vero Beach
moves on to play in the
Region 2-6A quarterfinals,
keeping its dream of a state
title intact.
"We seem to be playing well
now," Vero head coach Shane
Barrett said. "We have to try to
not make too many mistakes
on our side.
"We have to do a good job
of getting the ball to the right
people."
Following a similar path
into the regional quarterfinals
is Martin County. The Tigers
got a scintillating 1-0 win over
Monarch in the district semi-
finals on an unassisted goal
by Johan Villegas in the third
minute of the second sudden-
death overtime to reach the
District 14-5A title match.
"We knew we had our
hands full," Martin County
head coach Juan Kalb said.
"When you play a physical
team like that, you are hoping
to keep them at bay for most
of the game.
"You know there is going to
be a lot of defense and the
scoring' does not come as
often as you like."
Unfortunately, Martin
County's magic ran out
against WT. Dwyer. Despite a
marked improvement in the
team's play after a 4-1 loss to
Dwyer in the regular season,
the Tigers (16-6-3) continued
having trouble scoring and
fell 1-0.
"We've never been a first-
half team," Kalb said. "Early
on in the year, they dominat-
ed us well. This time, I knew it
was going to be different.
"Our defense was playing
better. Obviously, they did
for most of the game.
"In the last 15 minutes of
the game we didn't get a
clear, and it went to their
best player. He made a great
shot and it goes in."
Martin County must now


regroup if it is to advance
deep into the playoffs.
"We're no different than
anybody else," Kalb said.
"We have to concentrate on
our strong point, which is
defense and hopefully that
will motivate our offense.
"We have our work cut out
for us. We have to play as
good or better than we did
against Monarch and
Dwyer."
While the Martin County
and Vero Beach tandems
earned chances to extend
their season, two teams that
failed to qualify for regionals
were Treasure Coast and
Sebastian River. Both played
well, with each finishing up
with nine wins, but couldn't
advance beyond the semifi-
nals.
The Titans left a lasting
impression on the district
tournament with an excit-
ing 2-1 shootout win over
Fort Pierce Central in the
first round. Down 1-0 with
three minutes to go,
Johnathan Quintero scored
on a 25-yard shot to send
the game into overtime, and
then Diego Ramos scored
on a penalty kiWk after the
teams endured two 10-
minute overtimes.
"They're a good group of
boys," Titans head coach
Matt Walby said. "They work
hard with each other."
Sebastian River didn't
need any late game heroics
in its win over Port St. Lucie.
Dominating from start to
finish, the Sharks won 4-0,
extending its late season
turnaround. With the victo-
ry, the Sharks improved to 7-
1-1 in its last nine games
after starting 2-5-3.
"We're kind of rebuilding,
but we're hoping for better
than that,"' Sharks' head
coach Chris Taylor said ear-
lier in the year.
Both teams played well in
its semifinal matchups, but
couldn't pull out the wins.
Bayside knocked off Sebast-
ian 2-1, while Satellite
scored a late goal in the
72nd minute to eke out a 1-0
win.
Now, for each of the teams
remaining, it comes down to
basics to further its season
or wait till next year.
"It's always nice to work
on putting the ball in the
back of the net," Kalb said.
