Tax reform will force adjustments to budgets


Leaders begin
considering
options in light
of Jan. 29 vote
BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staffwriter
MARTIN COUNTY -
Almost half of Martin Coun-
ty's voters showed up at the
polls on Jan. 29 to vote in
the presidential primary
and decide on a controver-
sial tax reform amendment.
Election results show that
49 percent of the county's
94,889 registered voters cast
ballots that day, a fact that
surprised Martin County


Supervisor of Elections Vicki
Davis.
"I was predicting a 35-40
percent turnout, and we
measurably exceeded what
was expected at the polls,"
she said. "The closest (com-
parable) percentage of
turnout at the polls was 35
percent in 1996 for a presi-
dential primary."
Statewide, about 30 per-
cent of registered voters cast
ballots during the primary,
up from about 20 percent in
the 2000 and 2004 presiden-
tial primaries. Ms. Davis
attributed the larger local
turnout to the property tax
reform amendment on the
ballot and the fact that the
primary was an "open seat."


Almost twice as many
county Democrats chose
Hillary Clinton over Barack
Obama, while the majority
of Republicans chose John
McCain over Mitt Romney.
Statewide, 50 percent of
Democrats voted for Mrs.
Clinton and 33 percent
voted for Mr. Obama, while
36 percent of Republicans
backed Mr. McCain and 31
percent voted for Mr. Rom-
ney.
In addition, more than 70
percent of voters approved
the property tax reform
amendment. City of Stuart
residents also voted on the
fluoridation issue, with 52
percent voting in favor and
30 voting against fluorida-
tion.

The statewide amend-
ment raises the property tax
exemption for homestead-

with them when they move
to another property.
City and county leaders
have expressed concern
over the last few months
about the possible effect the
amendment's passage
would have on their budg-
ets. Area municipalities
have already had to tighten
their belts due to reduced
sales tax revenue and new
state legislation regulating.

he said.
David Campbell of Sara-
sota was attracting a lot of
attention with his I large
elaborate stone sculptures,
particularly a seahorse
carved out of calcite. He's
been carving the sculptures
for 10 years and travels pri-
marily to arts shows "in
Florida and Colorado in the
summer."
This is his second year to
set up at the Hobe. Sound
show and was happier with
this year's weather, which
was warm and sunny. Last
year festival-goers and arti-
sans had to endure rain, he
said.
The show picks a different
artist every year to design
its poster and T-shirt, whose
sales are coordinated by the
GFWC Hobe Sound
Women's Club. The artist
this year was painter Joseph
LaPierre of Palm Beach Gar-
dens, an artist who' says he's
been "coming to the show
all seven years."
The visual arts Weren't the
only ones represented at
the show. Musician Mbandi,
a West African native now
residing in Bowie, Md., was
playing an electric key-
.:board and selling his CDs of
relaxing instrumental
music during the two-day
event. This was his second
time to participate in the
,Hobe Sound show and says
it's definitely wprth the air
fare.
7 "As far as making more
' money, it's a good show," he
said.
Show producer Howard
Alan of Plantation says he
tries to plan an, artistic mix
that will appeal to a broad
variety of tastes'.
S" "With such a variety of
media mixes and prices,
there is sure to be some-


thing for everyone," he said.
"We always look forward to
the grand, two-day event in
beautiful Hobe Sound."
Festival attendees also
enjoyed a variety of food
and beverages at the show,
including elegant crepes,
oriental stir-fry, Colombian
arepas (sweet corn meal
cakes filled with cheese)
funnel cakes and fruit
smoothies.
The other businesses lin-
ing the main also got into
the festive mood, with one
setting up a beer garden
and another setting up a
live country band out front.
The show is a collabora-
tive effort between the
Hobe Sound Chamber of
Commerce-and the GFWC
Hobe Sound Women's Club.
Ms. Ferrari says the whole
community benefits from
the event, which has earned
high marks from "Sunshine
Artist" magazine.
"The show has a tremen-
dous impact on our com-
munity," she said.
The Women's Club :coor-
dinates the sales of the
show's commemorative T-
shirts and posters, whose
proceeds go to local educa-
tion efforts, explained club
vice-president Adele Van
Sciver of Stuart.
"One hundred percent of
our proceeds go to educa-
tion," she said. "We do sin-
gle mother scholarships,
older women going to work
programs and library pro-
grams."

REVIEW

Stuart, Martin County in talks
to merge Fire Rescue teams
Martin County Fire Rescue Chief Thomas Billington
plans to meet with both Stuart city commissioners and
Martin County commissioners over the next few months
to present a plant to merge the city and county's Fire
Rescue divisions into a single unit.
Mr. Billington says his research proves that a com-
bined department can provide a better level of service at
significant cost savings. He says the combination would
result in a lower amount of overtime and less of a need
for upper level administrators.
If the plan is approved by both commissions, the
combined department could begin producing savings in
the 2008-2009 fiscal year budget.
County administrator Duncan Ballantyne backs the
plan, but some elected officials, such as Martin County
commissioner Lee Weberman, have expressed concern
about the hapdling of seniority and certification issues.
Mr. Billington hopes to have the unified Fire Rescue
division in place by Oct. 1 if approved by both commis-
sions.
Sandhill crane family to delay
Palm City Library expansion .
County officials decided not to close the Cummings
Library as scheduled on Feb. 4 to begin a year-long, $3.5
million expansion after workers discovered a pair of
sandhill cranes and their nest while removing exotic
plants from the surrounding property.
The county's environmental lands administrator,
Chuck Barrowclough, said the migratory birds are pro-
tected under the Endangered Species Act. He explained
that the discovery of the nest automatically triggered the
approximate 10-week delay, which is the minimum time
needed for the eggs to hatch and the parents to teach the
chicks to fly and fend for themselves.
The library will remain open for the next several weeks
until the construction will no longer be a threat to the
birds.
The county is adding a new two-story wing that will
include a cyber Internet caf6 and new children's class-
rooms and when completed will be double the library's
current size.

Stuart voters approve fluoridation
City voters approved the addition of fluoride to the
municipal drinking water supply during the Sept. 29
presidential primary, with 48 percent of the voters voting
against fluoridation.
One of the measure's primary backers, area dentist
David Bowden, said the fluoride would pay for itself over
time with fewer cavities for city residents .
Stuart already has approximately $112,000 invested in
.fluoride equipment, which was partly funded by a

Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


What happened to the lights?

I'd like to comment on the Jensen Beach lights that are
disabled.
Apparently, they were supplied by a vendor who provided
a product that was not hurricane-proof. It seems that the
company that supplied lights should be the ones to replace
and repair them, and the taxpayers should not be liable for
this.

How about subsidized housing?

With all the vacant housing in the Stuart area, and more
being built unnecessarily, it seems someone could initiate a
federal grant for government subsidy for some more need-
ed housing in this area for those who desperately need
affordable rent, like those on social security. It makes sense
that proportional rent from a reliable tenant would make
rent that vacant condo's. I think it's time someone in this
area looks into having more subsidized housing. We have a
huge need for it.

Stop dividing the races

Any group of people has a right to call themselves
that which is meaningful.
It is, however, a discredit
to those of the Negro race to be called "African-Ameri-
cans."
I don't know where it started, but there was a time when
the "proper" terms were Negro, Caucasian, Oriental, etc.
Somewhere along the;way we seemed to need to define the
Negro race with
Africa. Those who came on slave ships have been here
longer than those who were white. So why now the connec-
tion?
It started with the Emancipation Promotion under Presi-
dent Lincoln. It really didn't take hold until
Martin Luther King and Lyndon Johnson made the big
step to give all of us equal rights. It was a long
struggle that is still going on. We (I emphasize we) are a
nation indivisible. Not one that is divided between the con-
tinent of Africa (not all black) and America that includes
North/Central/South America.
It doesn't define a race that is so engraved in our coun-
try. Once in the recent past, Negroes rejoiced in proclaim-
ing "black is beautiful." It surely still is.
The military uses United States on the uniform of our fine
men and women in the service to our country. We don't
honor those who have given their life as an American-
American, but a man or woman of the United States of
America. Let us all be one.

In response to 'What happened
to the American dream'

I understand where this person is coming from. I must
point out a few things though. Not every person who earns
more than $250,000 works very hard for his or her money.
There are some people out there that work harder for less.
Who ever wrote this comes off to me that they are only con-
cerned for their own selves and hardly seems like a person
who donates to people with needs. It would be nice to think
that we could do a straight 15-20 percent tax for everyone so
it's fair.
That is up to our politicians and so far, Republican or
Democrat, that hasn't happened yet. I think that you
.should know that it is not just you out there supporting
everyone who is in need. Even my family which makes
about half of what you do has to support those same peo-
ple. I think the government is partly at fault for not investi-
gating if half of the people who are in need are actually in
need.
When I was in high school I used to work in a grocery
store and I would see people buying steaks and lobster all
on their food stamp cards. I would think to myself, they are
eating better than I do. Now that is a problem. I have been
living under a Republican's control for long enough. In my
opinion it has turned out very bad. It was a Republican that
put us into the Great Depression and it was a Democrat that
pulled us out of it. In my eyes Democrat parties work for
everyone. Don't forget that the lower and middle class peo-
ple have just as important roles in running a business.

Make our votes count

As a 70-year-resident of the state of Florida, I am appalled
at both the Republican National Committee and the Demo-
cratic National Committee for refusing to count our votes in
the primary. I think that everyone who sent money to the


I
<* J>
........?


Republican National Committee and the Democratic
National Committee or any candidate for national office
should not, only ask, but also demand a refund of those
donations. Let them go to somebody like Bloomberg or
someone who will represent the state of Florida. I think it's a
shame we are asked to vote and then our votes are not going
to count. This should not be allowed to happen and the
national parties should be made to pay for that.

End automated answering machines

All I wanted was the answer to a simple question; does the
new bank have safety deposit boxes? I asked customer serv-
ice, but instead of an answer, I was given the whole menu of
services none of which covered my needs. They asked for all
of my numbers, which was totally unnecessary, even my
social security number. It was infuriating and a waste of my
time. I hung up furious. Are there any numbers one can call
without getting the overly long menu, with press this and
press that... none of which answer the questions we have.

Church sticks to rules

Last Sunday I wanted to leave church out of a side door
after communion, and two ushers held me hostage. I insist-
ed that I had to leave and they followed me outside and told
me never come back and that they would not me out if I was
in a bar. Why should I be forced to stay the entire time? They
told me I had to leave out of the back door, but my car was
in the front. With all the controversy with the Catholic
Church, why would they force people to stay? I talked to the
pastor, and he stands behind the ushers, saying that it was
the rules. I have a neighbor that fell ill during mass, and they
told her the same thing. I feel like our church is a prison. It's
a disgrace.

Response to no-kill shelter

This is in reply to the rant about the no-kill shelter. I had a
similar experience with the shelter in Sebastian. Although I
don't know if it is the same shelter, I'd like to talk to whoever
wrote this rant. Please respond to me at manah2@aol.com.

Crack down on bikers

I'd like to know why motorcycles and scooters can park
on the sidewalks and riders don't have to wear helmets? We
have to buckle up inside of a vehicle, but they don't have to
have any safety precautions. And they are allowed to bar
hop without any consequences.
Are the police afraid of them? Why don't they get a DUI?

Bush greatest president since Lincoln

Saddam Hussein hadt 30,000 tons of conventional
weapons and ammunition. He planned to overrun Kuwait
and Saudi Arabia, and then team with Iran to cut off our oil.
He did not need weapons of mass destruction. Americans
would have been starving and freezing in the dark within 40
days. President Bush will go down in history as our greatest
president since Lincoln. He preserved the American way of
-life for another decade.

U.S. should split into two nations:
GOP and Dem

This is in response to the many diverse rants about the
GOP, the Dems, One Nation Under God, (seceding) from the
U.S. etc.
Brevard County is polarized and ready, for civil war. One
rant says we live well under President Bush, while another
asks how much longer we are going to put up with that per-
son in the White House. Both camps are absolutely con-
vinced they are right.


So, it must be that the Bush supporters are living well
under their president, while the Dems are suffering because
of him.
Inequality rises when the GOP is leading, and falls under
the Dems.
The reader asking for help to cede from the U.S. has a
solution.
It is time for One Nation to divide into two nations, but we
must divide peaceably without bloodshed. No longer would
one group of citizens prosper from the suffering of the other
group.
The division will be virtual not an actual geographic divi-
sion.
We will be two virtual nations with separate economic sys-
tems and governments.

Workers at McDonald's don't deserve a break

In reply to the raver pleading to "Give McDonald's workers
a break:" They blunder on purpose.
That's right I am convinced of it. My order is an easy one: a
Quarter Pounder with lettuce and tomato only. More often
than not, the smirking worker you rave about hands me a
burger with mustard and ketchup. No lettuce leaves. No
tomato slice. Gobs of mustard. I hate mustard.
You want me to park, wait in line and then offer another
chance to get it right? The one time I did that, he simply
plopped some lettuce on top of the mustard. Should I have
offered a third chance to get it right?
Those kids work there because it's the only job they could
get. The managers, too.

Democrats should have,
impeached Bush, Cheney

The only problem with the Democrats as loyal opposition
is that the Democratic leadership puts politics and main-
taining their power above principle, the same way that the
Republicans do.
Instead of drawing up articles of impeachment for both
Bush and Cheney and putting them on trial for their numer-
ous violations of the law and constitution, the Democrats
try to withhold money from the Iraq effort. In the end, poli-
tics wins and they give in to this corrupt administration and
allow the military action to continue.
The Democrats don't have to scramble to take credit for
the surge working because it is not. It is not fulfilling its stat-
ed purpose, to allow the government of Iraq time to become
united and effective.
The surge is stopping violence in the streets because there
are more American soldiers and because we have made
deals with local militias and support them rather than fight-
ing them. The government of Iraq has not changed.at all; it
is fractured along religious lines and not making any
progress toward unity and the protection of all its people.
American soldiers are literally the Iraqi police force.
The price for this false success is one I am not willing to
pay: American soldiers killed and maimed every month, bil-
lions of dollars spent every month for the foreseeable
future.
By the way, the man responsible for Sept. 11, Osama bin
Laden,. and the people who protect him, are still at large.
They are not in Iraq and they are still plotting to attack us in
the United States.

Country needs to stop its web of debt

To cede is to yield or grant, typically by treaty.
Perhaps the reader wishes instead to forfeit his citizen-
ship, but wait! We need this (and every) citizen's help to
understand and defeat the insane imbedded forces that
continually drive our economy to ever greater levels of debt.

Rants & Raves
From page A6
New debt (via pork) is demanded to create funds that pay
the interest on our accumulated debt, all of which can never
be paid offl. I suggest to all: buy, beg, borrow or steal a copy
of "Web of Debt," by Ellen Hodgson Brown, a Los Angeles
attorney, to learn the exact cause and history of this prob-
lem, why this Ponzi-like scheme is destined soon to crash,
and what we may do before then to disentangle ourselves
and restore sanity to our economy.
Further information (and three complimentary chapters)
are available at www. webofdebt.com.
Wanna-be seceder given some friendly advice
The ranter who wants to secede from the U.S. and
renounce his citizenship should think again. He might be
unpleasantly surprised at the outcome.
This person cannot secede from the nation on his own lit-
tle plot of ground and expect to stay there. Secession is what
led to the Civil War, which as we all know, ended in bitter
defeat for those who seceded.
If he manages to accomplish his desires, then he might
expect U.S. marshals to show up at his door and escort him
to the nearest U.S. Customs for processing as an unwelcome
non-citizen alien. Hopefully, he will have arranged for a
boat to take him elsewhere.
Perhaps Castro's Cuba would welcome him to set up on his
own plot of ground a government unto himself, but I doubt
it. Canada or Mexico likely wouldn't want him to try such a
thing there, either.
His biggest problem would be to find any country in the
entire world which would allow him to become a "nation"
on land within their borders. Possibly, though, he could buy
a large chunk of the Sahara desert for his nation.
He better have a ton of money wherever he finds a place to
land to pay for his own police, fire protection, doctor, den-
tist, clinics, and equipment for all of the above. He would
need to pay for roads, transportation of some kind, and all
other infrastructure in his nation.
And if anybody is dumb enough to join him in his exodus,
how much will he charge (tax) them for some of the ameni-
ties he now takes for granted here?
Can he afford to pay for a small army to protect his desert
cum nation from interlopers or terrorists? He best have a
few billion to get his new nation under way.
In the meantime, he should be very careful what he wishes
for. Because despite her faults, the United States of America
is the absolute best country in the world: where freedom is
paramount; free speech prevails; and anybody can write
and have published any crackpot idea they can think of.

Providing facts is not hatred
A writer said that my letter about homosexual reality cast
hatred.
If I wrote that 70 percent of all African American children
are born out of wedlock, then I guess the writer would say
that was casting hatred.
If I wrote that the 2006 FBI hate crimes report showed that
Blacks/African Americans commit more anti-Hispanic hate
offenses per capital than whites then I assume the writer
would say that is casting hatred.
But those are facts.
The writer wrote while there are many non-monogamous


homosexuals there are just as many if not more non-
monogamous prolmnisctmous heterosexuals. Since heterosex-
uals out number homosexuals about 49 to 1, there certainly
are more non-monogamotis heterosexuals.
The writer uses anecdotes to prove his/her point. There
are promiscuous heterosexuals. Several years ago I had two
clients. One was a black woman, age 42, who had 10 chil-
dren by 10 different men and the other was a white woman,
age 25, who had six children by six different men. In the past
few years, 1 have spoken to 200 women who have had three
or four children by three or four different men. But these
anecdotes do not change the overall statistics. I am sur-
prised the writer did not cite Wilt Chamberlain who said he
had sex with 20,000 women.
You can disagree with my letter when I wonder why the
CDC does not keep figures on the lifetime sex partners of
homosexuals, but the rest of the letter is based on facts
taken from various reports, newspapers, TV shows, etc.
* I am sorry you do not like the facts I cited but I did not
know providing facts is hatred.
Doesn't want another
Clinton in the White House
Why in the world would we want another Clinton in the
White House?
We had Bill and Hillary for eight years. Now, if people in
this country vote for Hillary, does this make Bill First Lady?
Can someone tell us what the Clintons did for this country
in the eight years they occupied the highest office?
We want to see the United States come out of the recession
and guard our borders, save Social Security and end the war.
Which one of the candidates running can promise me just
some of the things that need repairs?
Children follow parents' examples in behavior
I want to respond to ("Parents need to take responsibility
for raising their children correctly").
One, you can't teach what you don't know: respect; man-
ners; behavioral attitude; courtesy; language; proper attire;
and countless more.
Two, a child emulates what he sees and hears inside the
household. If he sees respect between the parents, he learns
respect; if he hears vile and foul language, he learns vile lan-
guage; if the dominant parent wears clothing inappropriate
for street attire, the child emulates the attire for school, dis-
regarding the school clothing attire.
You teach what you are. Your children learn your habits,
vocabulary, manners, attire and respect toward others.
I thank the writer of the letter for sharing this incident with
the readers.
Our libraries' quiet atmospheres should be enjoyed by all
who use the facilities, computers, meeting rooms, etc., not
just a loud-mouthed juvenile whose manners were on dis-
play of how small and vile her world is at 15 years old. She
has much to learn, while her frontal lobe is still being devel-
oped. Maybe in the development of her brain she will learn
better manners and language for usage every day and every
way.
Items dangling from car mirrors hazardous
"Driving 101: For those who really need it" had excellent
pointers for safe driving.
Here are a couple more aimed at those who purposely
obliterate their windshields by hanging handicap parking


permits and miscellaneous junk from their rearview mir-
rors.
All states have statutes pertaining to. "obstructions that
restrict visibility." Florida has three that make it a moving
violation to have items that hamper one's view of the road-
way. A handicap parking permit or any other object dan-
gling from the rearview mirror is like putting your up-raised
hand out like a policeman would if he were to stop you, and
stop you he should if you are violating these or any other
laws.
There seems to be a growing epidemic throughout the
nation to disregard these laws either by ignorance, laziness
or choice. By the same token, I have not seen or heard of
traffic officers stopping, any of these offenders (who) are
putting other motorists at risk. A handicap parking permit,
Hawaiian lei, booties or other like itemscan block the dri-
ver's view of a child, pet, animal or adverse road conditions.
Officers, when people flaunt the law, they are thumbing
their noses at.you personally and at the law in general.
Handicap parking permits are great for people (who) really
need them; many do not. If it were up to me, I'd issue a
warning first, then if I caught an offender a second time, I'd
issue a fine and the third time, his or her permit would be
gone. All in the interest of safety on the highway, let's get
those windshields cleared of all obstructions.
How many medical doctors
are qualified to do acupuncture?
I am well aware of the benefits of the services of a chiro-
practor and acupuncture.
We are insured through the Empire Plan, and they boast
that acupuncture is covered under their plan. But, it must
be performed by a medical doctor.
Hlow many medical doctors are ,qualified to practice
acupuncture?
I wish someone would answer this for me!
Editor's note: According to the American Academy of Med-
ical Acupuncture, "Medical acupuncture is the clinical disci-
pline of acupuncture as practiced by a physician who is also
trained and licensed in Western biomedicine."
The group represents more than 1,500 physicians who are
board certified in the technique of acupuncture.

I read an article today on Yahoo's HotJobs titled, "Survey

From all my years in the employment world, this has been
my experience. I've loved all my jobs. It's the (managers) and
their management style that leaves something to be desired.
While you are employed, big business management treats
you like a machine.
You walk up to a computer, an (ATM), your lawn mower,
your car, a light switch, a faucet ... and you demand the
machine start working and get the job done. Likewise, man-

walk nonchalantly away.
Most of us, myself included, don't walk up to a machine

A practice that always

keeps an eye on you

East Florida Eye Institute has
provided high-tech eye care


for more than 18 y
BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART Dr. Ronald
Frenkel is serious about
helping those who suffer
from eye diseases to regain
their sight.
A board certified and fel-
lowship-trained ophthal-
mologist, Dr. Frenkel has
devoted his life to the study
and implementation of the
most advanced treatments
for macular degeneration
and glaucoma and is a certi-
fied macular degeneration
investigator.
After interning at Harvard
Medical School and the
Kresge Eye Institute and
returning to Harvard to pur-
sue advanced sub-specialty
fellowship training, he
moved to Stuart, where he
founded the East Florida Eye
Institute in 1989.
Since that time, he says he
has seen dramatic changes
in the way that certain eye
diseases are treated and the
abandonment of laser thera-
py as a treatment in wet
macular degeneration,
which always caused scar-
ring on the eyes.
"The treatment in macu-
lar degeneration has really
been revolutionized over the
last couple of years," he said.
"The laser treatments were
very destructive. Now we're
using drugs instead."
Dr. Frenkel is particularly
excited about a new drug
recently approved by the
Food and Drug Administra-
tion, Lucentis. It's part of the


J I ___
_ -~ _


Fears
Anti-VEGF (Vascular
Endothelial Growth Factor)
class of medicines, which
help block the growth of
abnormal blood vessels .in
the eye.
"This has been a major
advance in the treatment of
macular degeneration," he
said. "It's a drug that's inject-
ed directly into the eye by a
tiny needle."
The injections are given
monthly, but there's also
another recently approved
drug in the same class,
Avistin, which he says may
work even better.
"This appears that it may
need to be injected less
often than Lucentis, and it's
also a stronger drug," he
said.
Unlike in the treatment of
cancer and other incurable
diseases, the field of oph-
thalmology has been slow to
adopt the use of clinical tri-
als, in which participants
take new drugs that are still
awaiting FDA approval.
That's now changing, and
Dr. Frenkel is proud that the
East Florida Eye Institute
can now offer its patients
that option as well. There are
currently several clinical tri-
als underway or accepting
enrollment in the treatment
of both wet and dry macular
degeneration, diabetic eye
disease and uveitis.
"With the VEGF trial, none
of the patients were taking
placebos and we could see
within a week that it was
working," he said excitedly.
"Our experience has mir-
rored that of other ophthal-
mologists."
He emphasizes that he's
seen the most radical
changes over the years in the
treatment of wet macular
degeneration.
'In the beginning, there
was very little hope," he said.
Now we're able to stabilize
the vision in 90 percent of
the cases and improve the
vision in 30 percent."
One of the most challeng-
ing areas of his career has
been in the treatment of the
dry form of the disease, a
much slower process that
occurs over a longer period
of time. Although he could
recommend that patients
supplement their diets with
antioxidants such as zinc,
selenium, and vitamins C, E,
and A, he never had a drug
therapy until the recent
introduction of a new medi-
cine called Fenretinide.
Now, his institute is about
to begin a clinical trial for
patients utilizing the drug
and has purchased a
$100,000 high-tech machine
known as a Heidelberg Reti1
nal Angiography. The device
is a high resolution scanning
laser ophthalmoscope that
will enable the clinic's staff
to better predict the future

Utilities
From page Al
tighter watering restrictions,
and local water managers
say residents will likely see
an increase in their bills
unless the restrictions are
removed.
Those who live in the
areas of Jupiter Island and
Hobe Sound served by
South Martin Regional
Utility have already seen
drought surcharges on
their bills resulting from
: ach new, phase of water
restrictions.
The town of Jupiter Island
recently -asked the South
Florida Water Management
District for a variance to the
restrictions, claiming the
area has received more rain
lately and is not suffering
from a drought. An attorney
who represents the utility,
Philipp Gildan, said future
rate increases are inevitable
if the restrictions remain in
place.
"Without the variance,
there's no question that rev-
enues will have to be gener-
ated to replace the monies,"
he said. "The only option
for alternative revenues is
from the existing cus-
tomers."
Mr. Gildan explained that
each SMRU customer's bill
depends on that particular
household's water usage.
Those that use 3,000 gal-
lons or less a month would
see no change in their bills
or a surcharge, but those
who surpass that limit
would pay half as much
again for the water.
'"Above 3000, we have a
conservation rate structure
that steps up the costs per
1000 gallons," he said.
"They simply increase the
commodity charge 50 per-
cent."
Mr. Gildan emphasized
that the utility's water and
wastewater costs are fixed
totaling almost 90 per-
cent of expenditures ahd
do not change according to
consumption patterns. He
said that conserving water
could make the most
impact on utility bills.


"Overall your bill may not
change, but you simply
may be paying more money
for less water," he said.
The environmental serv-
ices director for Martin
County, John Polley, said
the county's utility depart-
ment has seen almost a 12
percent drop approxi-
mately $667,000 in water
and sewer revenues since
the first quarter of the fiscal
year ended on Dec. 31.
Those figures, he added, no
longer accurately represent
the revenue shortfall in the
county since even tighter
water restrictions went into
effect on Jan. 15.
The county already
employs a three-tiered rate
charge for water customers,
and the department has cut
expenses through staffing
reductions and leaving
vacant positions unfilled.
Still, that may not be
enough to offset the loss-
es, he says, because the
county has not had a rate
increase since October of
2001.
"The goal is to avoid a
rate increase," Mr. Polley
said. "We recognize that
our customers are suffer-
ing from the economic
downturn, and we want to
further avoid burdening
them with additional
expenses."
The assistant public
works director for the city
of Stuart, David Peters,
says the city's utility


department is facing up to
a 20 percent drop in water
revenues as a result of the
latest restrictions.
"We have seen a 16 per-
cent reduction in the over-
all water demands of our
customers in the city of
Stuart up to Jan. 15, when
residents could still water
two days a week," he said.
"Since then, we have seen
a 19 percent reduction,
and my estimation is that
it will go up to at least 20
percent by June."
Mr. Peters said the city is
also trying to cut costs and
only doing repairs and
maintenance on "what's
absolutely critical." Even
so, he's preparing figures
to present to city commis-
sioners on the option of a
new tiered rate instead of
the simple flat fee current-
ly charged. But whether
water restrictions remain
in effect or not, he says
that South Floridians bet-
ter get used to paying
more money for water.
"I think that everybody
needs to recognize that
inexpensive water is not
something that South
Floridians can expect to
see or have readily avail-
able," he said. "We're not
supporting higher rates...
it's just that the cost of
service and the cost of
water is going up. And it's
not just here it's every-
where.

progression of a patient's
eye disease.
"Most universities don't
even have this type of
equipment," he said.
"Since macular degenera-
tion is the major cause of
blindness in older Ameri-
cans, we're looking to pre-
vent that."
Dr. Frenkel's clinic has
steadily grown over the
years, and in 2003, he was
joined by Dr. Allison
Repreicht Toler, a board-
certified optometric physi-
cian educated at the Bas-
com Palmer Eye Institute
of the University of
Miami's School of Medi-
cine. Then, in 2007, anoth-
er board-certified opto-
metric physician educated
at the Southern College of
Optometry in Memphis,
Dr. Amanda Weiss, came
on board.
East Florida Eye Institute
also boasts an on-site opti-


cal shop, Discount Design-
er Optical, which offers a
full line of frames com-
bined with the latest state-
of-the-art technology.
In spite of all the suc-
cess and acclaim, Dr.
Frenkel says the real moti-
vation for him is helping
those suffering from eye
ailments.
"We had a patient with
wet macular degeneration


who was legally blind and
who we treated with drug
therapy," he said. "She
was ecstatic because she
could read again and
write her own checks.
That's what makes it all
worthwhile."

Marina

sail next.
Boat owners will have no
choice but to weigh anchor
since the marina is sched-
uled to close from May of
this year to July of 2009 to
undergo privatization and a
major expansion.
The city of Stuart is leasing
the marina property to
Huizenga Holdings, Inc. for a
period of 40 years and will
receive $280,000 annually
from the company after the
expanded facility is up and
running. The city commis-
sion briefly touched on the
subject of the displaced
boaters on Jan. 28 when
commissioners voted to
approve the marina con-
struction timeline.
Commissioner Mary
Hutchinson dissented on the
vote, saying that several wor-
ried boaters had approached
her with their concerns.

"I thought that part of the
mooring field was going to
stay open," she said. "They're
a vital part of our community
and I'm not. comfortable
with just displacing them
with nowhere to go."
The commissioner also
questioned how a city statute
that prohibits boaters from
freely anchoring in city
waters would be enforced
without offering them an
alternative. The law requires
vessels within the city limits
to be tied up to a mooring
ball or a dock for other than
short periods of time. Martin
County currently has no
such regulation on the
books.
The rest of the commis-
sioners expressed little desire
to try and force the develop-
er to simultaneously juggle a
mooring field and the mari-
na expansion.

"I feel uncomfortable say-
ing we're going to micro-
manage portions of your
development," said Com-
missioner Michael Mortell.
"No matter what we do, we
run the risk of boats shifting
up and down the river."
City Manager Dan Hudson
said it was never Huizenga
Holdings' intention to keep
he facility open during con-
struction.
"They're basically going to
have their construction proj-
ects going on simultaneous-
ly, including the new restau-
rant, anchorage addition and
the marina docks them-
selves," he said.
"The whole site's going to
be a construction zone."
City Harbor Master Buzz
Billue said that he and his
staff have been contacting all
the live-aboard residents and
other year-round marina
tenants and telling them to
contact either the Harborage
Yacht Club or the Nettles
Island Marina.
"There are only about 15
live-aboard boaters who'll be
affected by the closure, and
there are normally only
about 38-40 boats moored
during the summer months,"
he said. "The rest of the ves-
sels are just being stored
here."
Many of Southport's ten-
ants, however, choose the
marina because they prefer
the privacy and less expensive
cost of a mooring field, as
compared to traditional dock-
age. Southport currently
charges $10 a day. or $240
monthly to tie up to a moor-
ing ball, and most private

marinas in the area charge
double that for a boat slip. The
only other nearby mooring
field is inVero Beach.
The issue for most boaters,
Mr. Billue said, is the incon-
venience rather than the
added expense.
"It's not so much the money
- it's the fact that this has
become their home," he
added. "It's where they get
their mail. And now they're
having to move their home."
One of the residents being
inconvenienced is AJ "Dr.

the day. I'd probably just
anchor the boat somewhere
in Martin County and bring
the dinghy in to go to work."
Another option, he says
boaters are hoping for is that
the city will give them permis-
sion to leave their cars parked
at Shepherd Park and simply
motor back and forth in their'
dinghies to wherever they're
anchored in county waters.
The longer he spoke about
the displacement, the more
frustrated Mr. Smith seemed
to become.
I "The city is kicking us out
and doesn't care about us," he
said. "If you have a job here,
you'll lose it. What are the
options here?"
- Mr. Smith also expressed
concern about all the long-
distance pleasure cruisers,
such as Steve and Mary Ann
Patterson of Bloomington,
Ind., who rely on Southport
Anchorage as a rest stop while
sailing up and down the East
Coast. The Pattersons left
Deltaville, Va. on Thanksgiv-
ing aboard their 42-foot
Hunter en route to 'the
Caribbean and were spending
a few weeks at Southport dur-
ing January and February.
Their first time at the marina,
the couple chose Stuart after
conversations with lots of
other boaters.
"We were trying to decide
where we wanted to be," she
said. 'The more we talked to
people and read about it, we
knew we wanted to come
here."
The Paftersons met two
other couples in North Caroli-
na, and the trio decided to sail
down the coast in a caravan,
ultimately winding up in Stu-
art. Mrs. Patterson empha-
sized the importance of a
mooring field to full-time
cruisers.
"Being on a mooring ball
gives you a chance to rejuve-
nate your finances," she said.
"If you have to pay dockage
every night, it can get pretty
expensive."
The couple is fascinated by
the simple charm and beauty
of Stuart, and she worries that
the new marina might just
take away from that unique-
ness.
So far, Huizenga represen-
tatives have declined to dis-
cuss the possibility of rent
increases once the marina
reopens and say' that the
rents will depend on market
conditions at the time.
Once completed, the
expanded marina will boast
118 new fixed boat slips in
addition to the mooring
field, a 7,000-square-foot
restaurant and an expanded
guest lounge.
















Up Against The Wall
Chair rails once served the function
of protecting walls from being damaged
by the backs of chairs. Today, home-
owners often add this piece of molding
to walls to lend style and definition to
dining rooms, living rooms, and entry
halls. As relatively simple as it may be
to add a chair rail to a room, things can
get a bit tricky when it comes to older
homes with floors and ceilings that are
out of level. In such cases, a perfectly
level chair rail can actually look
crooked. If so, it may make better : ,'
sense to put ele level away and place '
the chair rail haivay between re~el and
the closest visual reference point, '
usually the baseboard. ,
At our facility, home ddcor and
"Green" living are our passion. Many
people neglect their walls when coming
up with decorating schemes, but your
walls, along with your windows, are the
essential back drop that set the mood
for your entire home. let us help you I
select a wall decor that complements I
your furnishings and provides the
ambience you've beea looking for,

uninhabitable. Mr. Smith
earned his nickname during
the time he wrote fishing and
other outdoors-related arti-
cles for area newspapers and
has owned his own architec-
tural rendering firm in Stuart
for 19 years.
The marina closure will be
the last nail in the coffin of his
downtown business, he said,
which has been suffering due
to the economic downturn in
the housing industry. By May
1, he'll have shuttered the
business and be sailing slowly
northward along the coast as
he gathers materials for free-
lance articles to run in several
sailing publications.
"I'm going to write fishing,
pollution and mooring sto-
ries," he said. "I think every
three days I'll move on."
His route will take him to
the Titusville area and back,
and once he returns, he plans
on launching a Web site and
offer the comprehensive
packet of information for a fee
to other boaters. As far as
where he'll live, he's tentative-
ly planning to anchor his sail-
boat in Pendarvis Cove off
Mapp Road in Palm City, but
says he's hoping the city's will
assist him and other live-
aboards in getting back to a
regular routine during the
marina closure.
"Locally, I'm hoping the city
will let us use th;,0floating
docks in front of City-Hall, at
least for a while," he said. "No
one uses them much during

As you know from previous
columns, which gold prices have
risen to over $900 per ounce. That's
up over 40% since last year. Which
will definitely cause prices to rise in
retail jewelry.
Here's how it works. Most jewel-
ry stores purchase their products
from, manufacturers, and some jew-
elers manufacturer their own jewel-
ry. Both these methods of filling their
showcases with merchandise is
labor intensive, and can cause the
price to be greatly inflated. Common
sense would tell you that the gold for
this new jewelry must be purchased
at current market prices. Add in the
labor and any other profits the man-
ufacturer needs to make, including
commission and import duty ,if It is
manufactured outside the US, and
this causes prices on jewelry from
conventional sources to rise 4,5,6,
times the price of gold. The bottom
line, the rise In gold prices will defi-
nitely cause you to pay more for,
your new jewelry.
I have been In the jewelry trade
since 1979 and have always looked
out for the consumer and strived to
give them the best possible deal on
jewelry. Now, more than ever we are
swamped with, customers both buy-
Ing and selling, here's why. Most of
our jewelry, including diamonds,
gold, precious stones, virtually
everything you can think of related
to jewelry is bought by us from peo-
ple just like you. Even If we pay the
highest possible prices for your
unwanted jewelry we can still have
room to ,econaltion the piece to like
brand new condition and still sell it to
you for far'less, than anyone else,
because someone else has already
paid all of the markups of those
manufacturers and manufacturing
jewelers.
Since gold has risen so high we
have Increased our purchases from
the public approximately 10 times.
We would rather sell you this jewel-
ry at close to scrap prices than
scrap them. You win. You pay less.

is not on the census or has
moved. The name could be
so misspelled by the census
taker or indexer, that you
can't find it.
Try changing the spelling,
or just look for first names
on the index to narrow the
search. If you don't find
your name, look all the way
through the county if
necessary. If they still don't
show up, you must consid-
er that they have migrated.
There is always the chance
they were simply skipped
that year, but show up in
the same place before and

Handwriting can really be
difficult for everyone, but
especially for the novice. I
can now read names that
originally looked like Greek
to me at first. There are still
records that are unread-
able, either from the

condition of the copy. If
there are other researchers
nearby, ask for help.
Genealogists will gladly
gather around and give
their opinions. I can't
remember seeing a fellow
genealogist refusing to give
a little help, when asked for
advice.

Budgets
From page Al
with a laundry list of pro-
posed budget cuts on Sept.
22 but commissioners post-
poned making any decisions
until after the Sept. 29 vote.
Now that the amendment
has passed, Mr. Ballantyne
says it's time to trim the
budget.
"I will be meeting with
county commissioners to
discuss budget reduction
actions that we can begin
immediately with the inten-
tion of reducing the budget
now, in advance of next
year's budget," he said. "In
other words, the voters have
spoken, and we're going to
roll up our sleeves and get to
work."
Mr. Ballantyne explained
that the budget cuts would
be aimed more at the 2008-
2009 fiscal year budget but
should be put into place as
soon as possible.
. "We are anticipating a
three to four percent loss in
sales tax revenue and other
revenues, and we need to
address that issue with
reductions now," he said.
"The earlier we begin mak-
ing the decisions, the better
the decisions are going to
be."
The county administrator
is proposing $9.8 million in
cuts, with some of the
largest including a $1.75
million reduction on county
construction projects; $1.2
million in cuts to both the
general fund reserves and
Fire Rescue overtime pay,
with $600,000 coming from
each; $1 million in savings
from reducing service pro-
grams, contract oversight
and customer service; and
$900,000 in savings from
reducing health care grants
and aid to other organiza-
tions.
In addition, Mr. Ballan-
tyne is recommending that
the county cut from 85 to


100 positions, either
through early retirement
incentives or layoffs.
'The intention is to start
that process where it makes
sense now, and the board
has to decide where they'll
come from," he said. "It's a
very high priority that we
make any employee transi-
tions as positive as possi-
ble."
The county has also
implemented tighter restric-
tions on the use of overtime,
travel and vehicles and has
prohibited any non-essen-
tial purchases, he added.
The city of Stuart is also
having to take a hard look at
its finances, says City Man-
ager Dan Hudson, who
emphasized that the proper-
ty tax amendment will not
impact the city as much as it
will the county.
"Basically we're facing a
$300,000 shortage from
property tax revenue and
that will impact in the next
fiscal year," he said. "And
we're forecasting a reduction
in interest earnings and in.
sales tax collections as well."
Mr. Hudson says that his
staff has already calculated
what kind of hit city coffers
might take from the addi-
tional homestead exemption
and estimates it will produce
a shortfall in the range of
$500,000 to $600,000.
Although there is already a
selective hiring freeze in
place, Mr. Hudson said the
city has yet to prepare a list
of budget cuts and is taking a
wait-and-see attitude in the
matter. He emphasized that
he would be discussing the
issue with city commission-
ers at an upcoming retreat.
"I am concerned about the
future," he said. "We elected
not to pursue an early retire-
ment program last year, but
it might be a decision we
might have to make this
year. We're going to be ana-
lyzing over the next several
weeks to see if we need to
take any immediate action.

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealaers.

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 'ty' CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectat
f customers,

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

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
toners' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
lion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
7tion are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er today. "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 md,
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. .V,

SIPES IMPROVE
TIRE TRACTION
If you have ever inspected the rub-
ber soles on a pair of canvas boat
shoes, you'll have noticed that the
otherwise flat surface is broken by
equal-depth slices cut at regular
intervals across their width. These
cuts improve traction on slippery
boat decks. Now, take a close look
at your vehicle's tires. Aside from
the grooves and block shapes that
make up the tread, there are also
cuts in the blocks, which are known
as "sipes." These lateral cuts in the
larger tread elements are designed
to increase traction in snow, ice,
mud, and wet road surfaces. By
analyzing sipe placement, orienta-
tion, and depth in their tread
designs, tire manufacturers can
offer consumers products with
maximum traction benefits.
At ADVANTAGE FORD OF
STUART, we recommend regular
checks of your tires for both tread
and tire pressure. If you are unsure
about the condition of your tires,
come to 40.00 S.E. Federal Highway
and ask us for assistance. When it
comes to your safety we are always
here for you. Call 772.781.6540
with any questions you may have.
For your convenience, we have
Saturday appointments from 7:30-
3:30 as well as Monday to Friday,
7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
HINT: Sipes are named after John
Sipe, who received a patent in the
1920s after he noticed that trans-
verse cuts on the heels of his shoes
improved traction.

Life is an amaznhi thing; make sure you enjoy it


Philosophers and
scientists are continu-
ally discovering new
meanings and relationships
between different aspects of
life in all its forms.
There are continual
discoveries about pure
energy patterns below the
atomic level.
With advanced tele-
scopes, the discovery of
vast galaxies reaching into
interstellar space contin-
ues as well. The radio
sound waves of huge
antennas around the
world are constantly
probing outer space
searching for other signs
of life. There have
been discoveries of a
number of stars and
planets circling them like
our own solar system.
However, so far no
discoveries have show
signs of life as we know it
on Earth. So here we are, 6
billion plus humans, given
the responsibility of
creating and maintaining
life in all its forms. Life is
so sacred and valuable.
The natural order is to
bring harmony out of
chaos.
An example: There are
trillions of cells in the.
human body. Brain cells,
skin cells, red and white
blood cells, hair cells, etc.
The supreme power of the
universe call it God,
universal mind or whatev-
er created all of these to
live and work together in
peace, not war.
That's this amazing thing
called life.
The first thing we should
do upon awakening each
morning is give thanks and
gratitude for being given
another day alive as
human on Earth. Each of
us at birth were given a
divine purpose. Every one
of us has at least one true
gift and calling. Finding it,
bringing it out and setting
it free should be the No. 1
goal in life. Don't waste it.
Are you struggling in life?
Do you feel stuck, side-
tracked or going in the
wrong direction? We are
not supposed to be sick,


stressed out, poor in spirit
or wealth, sad or unhappy.
There is a far greater way
to live. The positive
continuation of life almost
demands that we do the
following things.
First, learn to live in
balance.
Life is like a wheel.
Everything we see in the
sky is rounded. For a
wheel to turn it must be
balanced. Look at life like
you are the hub of your
own wheel. How is this
done? Live from your
instincts and follow your
heart, not your head.
Reach out to others, take
care of business, then
come back to your center.
Refuse to live your life by
circling everyone else's
orbit and trying to please
them. The stress and
imbalance will do you in.
Have you ever been there?
Are you there now? Work,
sleep and play rather than
work, sleep and worry.
When was the last time
you got a good night's
sleep? Worry comes from
holding onto the past and
trying to live in the
future rather than forgiv-
ing and releasing them.
This is divided thinking
and no way to live.
Release the past. Live in
the moment. The Earth
lives one day at a time.
Live each day like there is
no other. When tomorrow
comes it is today anyway.
Happy people live this
way. Make a list of the
things you love in life.
Then make a list of the
things you don't want.
Focus on the things you
love. If you don't love it
don't do it. Your life is
important. Maybe more
than you know.
Desire for change creates
action. Action creates
reality. Honor life on earth.
Greed, war, killing,
destruction of the atmos-
phere, rain forests, rivers
and stream through
pollution is crazy.
Humans are one of a very
few forms of life that kill
their own. When are we
going to stop this waste?


JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide
Hopefully before it is too
late. Peace will only come
when the power of love
overcomes the love of
power. When we find out
true purpose and greater


value in life we find true
meaning and want to
preserve it rather than
destroy it. This makes us
ordinary folk doing
extraordinary things,
working together as a
loving family on Earth.
Isn't this the way you
want to live? You have it in
you. You were born with
genius in your soul. No
one can bring it out of you
except you. It doesn't have
a lot to do with education,
experience, wealth,
breeding or privilege. It
has everything to do with
finding your true purpose
and using your life for a
positive cause.
You can do it. I know you


can. Then after you find all
the hidden magic in your
soul and life is blessing
you, take care of your own
and family needs first.
Next, give back to your
spirit guides and help
those who inspired you on
your journey. You are now
the light.
Next pass the torch of
truth to the next genera-
tion of spirit bound souls
who want what you have.
Now yours has become
an extraordinary life well
lived. This is your legacy of
truth, that will live well
beyond your earthly days.
You can do all these things
and more. The sweetest
news is the best is yet to


come.

released after posting a
$20,000 bond.
Mr. Cora was arrested on
the DUll charge while living in
Vero Beach and playing for
the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Martin County Sheriff's
deputies stopped him in
Jensen Beach for speeding
and detained him after he
failed a field sobriety test.
Mr. Cora pleaded no con-
test to those charges and
received probation and 50
hours of community service
in addition to having his dri-
ver's license suspended. After
violating the terms of his pro-
bation, he was re-arrested in
2001 and failed to show up
for a court appearance in
May of that year, which
resulted in the judge issuing a
warrant for his arrest.

Philippe Entremont: A


childhood idol comes to town


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
In a career that spans
more than 60 years,
pianist and conductor
Philippe Entremont has
played with every major
symphony orchestra and
on-every world stage.
I first heard him in
New York, when my
parents took me to hear
,him perform with the
New York Philharmonic.
He was at the start of
his career. When .1
retuned home, I tore his
photo from the playbill
and hung it on my wall,
next to my picture of
Mickey Mantle.
Forty yqars later, I will
hear him play again
when he performs with
the Israel Chamber
Orchestra at the Lyric
Theatre on Feb. 13 as
part of the Treasure
Coast Concert Associa-
tion's Ovation Series.
Mr. Entremont, 73,
spoke to me from his
home in Paris.
"I was cleaning my
music library out for the
last two weeks," he said.
"I found the program of
the very first concert. I
wa4sli years old. That
means that right from
the start, I was meant for
the stage. I never
thought about doing
something else."
Mr. Entremont has
divided his career
between performing and


conducting, and he is
conductor laureate of
the Israel Chamber
Orchestra. He sees no
difference in the two
aspects of his career.
"I make music in
both," he said. "It's a real
plus for me because I
can do a lot of repertoire
with no limitation. It's
not only piano music.
My curiosity about
music is huge."
The program on Feb.
13 with the Israel Cham-
ber Orchestra will
feature "Concertino for
Piano," written by the
orchestra's musical
director, Gil Shohat;
Mendelssohn's Sympho-
ny No. 4, 'The Italian;'
works by Debussy; and
Schumann's "Piano
Concerto in A minor."
"The Schumann is
maybe the most beauti-
ful piano piece ever
written," he said. "It's the
supreme work. Gil
Shohat is the main
composer in Israel today,
and I share the program
with the orchestra."
One of Mr. Entremont's
favorite subjects is the
Santo Domingo Music
Festival, which takes
place in the Dominican
Republic every two
years.
"It's my baby," he said.
"It's a real success story.
Santo Domingo has a
- long history of classical
music; for years, artists
like Rubenstein and me

were playing there.
Twelve years ago, I
played a concert in a-
fantastic hall, and at
dinner after the concert,
the idea of a festival
crossed my mind. I told
the woman seated next
to me that I had a vision,
and she said she would
call me before I left. She
called, we met, and one
hour later, we had a
festival. All the money is
private money. It doesn't


come from the govern-
ment. In 2009, we will
have tenor Ben Heppner
opening the festival."
Mr. Entremont has no
plans to slow down.
"For what?" he said.
"What is the alternative?
I do something very
special. I never consid-
ered it as a job. I think
it's a blessing that all

Taurus-April 20-May 20
There are three main reasons for your success.
First, you are not afraid of taking risks and follow-
ing your dream. Second is your belief in life itself.
Third, you are always there for family and friends
when they need you. The universe continues to
renew you from the inside out.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Mars in Gemini give you extra strength and
courage when life's challenges try to pull you
down. Sometimes you have to show patience
with others who aren't as intuitive or instinctual as
you. One of the main keys for your success is to
express your desires in positive ways that make
others want to help you.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You live your life with a spirit of love and compas-
sion. When you turn inside and listen closely for
wise counsel, trust and act upon them, you are at

sharing with others is one of your greatest
rewards: It comes from the deep well of gratitude
in your soul.
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
You have a great, deep heart and a lot of motiva-
tion. You make it happen no matter what gets in
the way. Why? Because you never give up or quit
trying. You keep on keeping on. Life's challenges
make you try even more. Do things to lift your
own spirit as well.
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept 22
The universal presence in you constantly
inspires you to do your best. You wake up
each day with joy in your heart. You love to
share with others you meet along the way.
You choose harmony over chaos, peace over

DINING ENIEBIIRIM[NT


Make this Valentine's Day


a celebration of love, food


It's here again, Valen-
tine's Day, so pay
attention. Any advice I
give I have lived, and was
happily married for more
than 40 years.
Is it easy to make a
marriage work for so many
years? Not on your life, but
it is a most worthwhile
accomplishment.
There are times you love
that special someone to
death and there are times
you'd actually like to put
him or her to death.
Just remember to think:
we, us, our. To be loved,
you must be lovable. It is
not your right; it must be
earned. It doesn't take long
to know what buttons to
push and not to push. Talk
about feelings, wants,
needs, everything. Choose
your words carefully, you
can never erase them.
Timing is everything and
when anger or resentment
enters the picture that's
not the time to talk. Never
lose respect for the other
because once respect is
gone, love is soon to
follow.
A candlelight dinner is a
wonderful way to cele-
brate Valentine's Day,
especially when eating out
is not affordable. Farm the
kids out to friends, rela-
tives, etc., if possible and
make something easy.
Even take out is OK.
Just set the stage and
plan to make the evening
special.
Many years ago, my
steady boyfriend and I
spent the evening of my
senior prom at the Waldorf
Astoria in NewYork City. It
'was a magical evening as
we danced to the big band.
I vowed to someday
make that dinner for my
husband.
It was many years before
I made it; he remembered
and said it was just as
good as the first time we


had it.
It's quick and easy.
Since I can't remember
what the dish was called, I
simply named it Senior
Prom Steak.
Remember: renew your
commitments.

Valentine tidbits
Valentine's Day piqued my
curiosity since no one knows
its true origin.
Some trace it to an ancient
Roman festival.
There is ambiguous
evidence of two early
Christians, both named
Valentine, who were mar-
tyred on Feb. 14 in different
parts of Italy. No one knows
for sure if there was one or
two, however, one from
Rome was believed to have
been a priest and was


sainted in 350 A.D.
Some believe the day's
origin came from an
English poet in the 1300s
who chose Feb. 14 because
birds choose their mates
on that day.

Tea House offers delightful dining

Chef Boeau Mueller points to trays of garlic bread pud-
ding and mango bread pudding in the kitchen of Day of
Delight Tea House. Overlooking the St. Lucie River, the
restaurant offers a unique upscale dining environment in
three themed areas: Victorian, Asian and the Garden, the
latter an outdoor terrace overlooking the river.


By DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART If Alice had only
known where the rabbit was
going in such a hurry, she'd
have grabbed her friends and
followed him straight to the
Day of Delight Tea House on
the shores of the St. Lucie
River.
She would have had a much
nicer tea party with the March
hare and- the Mad Hatter,
since the latter would have
found many more hats to
*choose from and some 45 dif-
ferent blends of tea. Alice
wouldn't have had to worry
about being accused of steal-
ing the queen's tarts either,
although no one could blame
her for sneaking an extra
scone or two, topped with the
homemade Devonshire.
Creani or lemon curd.
The owner, Petra-Lee
Thomas, says it was her goal
all along to break away from
the "cookie-cutter environ-
ment" when she was planning
the fairy tale spot that would


occupy one of Martin Coun-
ty's most historic homes.
She and her husband David
Tanzer acquired the 1894 Vic-
torian in January of 2007 and
spent.almost a full year restor-
ing it. In the process, they cre-
ated three distinct dining
environments that patrons
can choose from: English Vic-
torian, Asian and Garden.
The first is a porcelain-filled
salon perfect for a father-
daughter tea or a little girl's
birthday party, in which Ms.
Thomas says the participants
can escape from the "Chuckie
Cheese" mentality for a
change. The Asian room is a
tranquil respite perfect for
recharging and refreshing,
and the Garden is a cozy out-
door dining terrace overlook-
ing a massive oak tree and the
river. All are perfect for cele-
brating a special occasion or
simply enjoying a spot of
afternoon tea.
Both Ms. Thomas and Mr.
Tanzer emphasize that the
focus here is on fresh, healthy
and organic.


"You look in my freezer, you
find only ice cubes," she said.
"Our seafood is caught and
served within 18 hours. If I
want to have a piece of steak
or lobster, I want it to burst
(with flavor) in my mouth."
Ms. Thomas works closely
with Chef Beaux Mueller, a
2005 graduate of Johnson and
Wales University who previ-
ously earned acclaim at 11
Maple Street in Jensen Beach.
Together they create the
menu, she says, which
changes every week or two
according to what's in season.
She's particularly proud that
Mr. Mueller refused to pre-
pare anything he considers
not at its peak of flavor.
"To find a chef like that,
who's used to working with
fresh ingredients, is incredi-
ble," she said.
Chef Mueller's creations are
so beautifully crafted that you
may stiffer pangs of guilt
when tearing them apart, and
almost every entree and,
appetizer coming out of the
kitchen is topped with an edi-


ble flower petal or a sprig of
freshly snipped rosemary.
The Tea House's menu is'
divided by courses, each'
available independently or as
part of a four-course dining
experience. The first consists
of a soup, such as shitake
mushroom bisque or curried
squash soup, each topped
with fresh green onion or
cilantro, respectively.
The second course appetiz-
ers were some of the most,
incredibly crafted dishes that
this writer has seen, and
included a roasted asparagus
with herbed egg salad, served
with an olive icrostini and
lemon aioli; heirloom tomato
and avocado salad with
house-cured salmon; and a
"BIT" with lobster salad and
mango aioli.
The third course consists of,
a variety of fresh entrees,
including grilled skirt steak
with roasted garlic bread pud-
ding, sauteed corn and blue-
berry sauce; roasted potatoes ,

Senators need to sack car dealer fee


Scopes

Followers of this
column know that I've
been trying for several
weeks to discuss the dealer
fee issue with Sen. Jeff
Atwater, R-North Palm
Beach the next president of
the Florida Senate. I was
successful and met with the
senator for nearly two hours
on Jan. 26. Not only that,
but he agreed to call in to
my radio show, Seaview AM
960, WSVU airing Saturday
mornings between 9 and 10,
on Feb. 9.
Regular readers, please
excuse a little recap to bring
those up-to-date who aren't
aware of the dealer fee and
the pending legislation.
The dealer fee is a "license
to steal," made legal by a
bad Florida law. A dealer fee
goes by at least 22 different
names, according to the
Florida Senate investigating
committee. Dealer fee,
documentary fee, dealer
prep fee and administrative
fee are just a few.
The highest dealer fee r
know of is $999 charged by a
dealer in Coconut Creek,
west of Fort Lauderdale. The
lowest I know of is $389 and
the average is around $700.
This "fee" is just dealer
profit disguised to make
people believe they are
paying an official fee to
state, local or federal
government. Lots of dealers
omit this from their adver-
tised price (which is illegal)


and surprise those cus-
tomers who happen to
notice it in the paperwork
when they take delivery.
Most customers never
notice the dealer fee at all.
Those who advertise
legally and do include the
dealer fee in the price,
generally advertise just one
vehicle at that price.
Unfortunately this specific
car has always "just been
sold" when you come in on
the ad. But, they tell you, we
have lots more just like it.
The other cars might be
just like it, but not the price.
Now, the law allows the
dealer to add the dealer fee
to the price. Enough people
have complained about this
that Sen. Ken Pruitt, R-Port
St. Lucie, the current Senate
president, formed a com-
mittee to investigate making
the dealer fee illegal or
capping it. This recommen-
dation was sent to the
Legislature several months
ago. Read this report by
clicking on the Web site'
www.EarlStewart.com.
In my meeting with Sen.
Atwater, I was quite sur-
prised to learn that he knew
virtually nothing about the
dealer fee or the senate
investigating committee's
report. There are many,
many issues that state
senators must deal with and
this is just one.
Sen. Atwater has been
spending a large amount of
his time on insurance and
property tax issues. I fur-
nished him with lots of
information including a copy
.of the S IC report, copies of
every auto classified ad in the
Palm Beach Post on Jan. 26
(with my annotations), copies
of dealer's vehicle buyers'
orders disclosing their dealer
fees and copies of articles I
had written on this subject for
my blog and Hometown


EARL STEWART
On Cars


News.,
With all modesty, I must say
that I did a very good job of
educating Sen. Atwater on
why this dealer fee is so bad
for Florida car buyers.
The senator expressed
surprise and disappointment
with the lack of thoroughness
of the senate committee's
report. The committee
worked hand-in-hand with
the Florida Automobile
Dealers Association that is
heavily lobbying the Florida
Legislature to preserve the
dealer fee. I told Sen. Atwater
that this was like "sending a
rabbit after lettuce."
Furthermore, no one in the
senate committee ever talked
to a single consumer, a car
buyer. How can a committee
possibly make an intelligent
recommendation that will
protect the rights of the
consumer when they hear
only the car dealer's side of
the story?
I showed the senator
quotes from the FADA
magazine, "Velocity."
"Sen.Atwater... to support
his campaign for Senate
because he has promised to
help us again this year... goal
is $50,000."
Dealers have already
contributed $24,500. The
FADA has listed the preserva-


tion of the dealer fee as their
No.1 agenda item.
"The senate's threat to cap
your dealership service fees
could reduce your gross
profit on each new and used
vehicle."
And FADA is hiring a news
lobbyist. Quoting from
Velocity: "Help us hire a
lobbying team. The attack
on your dealer service fee
will require a team of new
lobbyists ... those funds
cannot come from our
political action committee.
Every dealer who charges a
service fee should cut a
healthy check payable to
'FADA' for our legislative
action fund. We will hire
top-notch lobbyists with
your contributions."
It's clear that the car
dealers of Florida will fight
tooth, nail and wallet to
preserve their Florida state
"license to steal" aka the
dealer fee. But the good news
is that we have a huge
opportunity to prevail with
the help of Sen. Atwater.
What can you, the readers
of this column and my blog,
do? Let Sen. Atwater know
how you feel. Relate your
experience with the dealer fee
when you bought your last
car. Most car buyers don't
even realize they paid a dealer
fee but the chances are 99.9
percent that if you bought a
car in Florida you paid one.
You can e-mail Sen. Atwater
atJefl@Senatorjeff.com and
call him at (561) 625-5102. If
you e-mail him, please copy
me at earls@earlstewarttoy-
ota.com.
If you have a question you
would like me to ask the
senator when he calls into my
radio show this Feb. 9
between 9:05 and 9:20 a.m.,
please e-mail it to earlstew-
art@seaviewam960.com or
call me on my cell phone at
(561) 358-1474.

baseball's most dangerous
hitters with the game on the
line.
However, in early 2006, the
Martin County native faced
his toughest opponent not
on a baseball field, but in a
doctor's office.
Only three weeks after
experiencing the joy of the
birth of their second child
Mary Elizabeth, Proctor
along with his wife Carrie
learned that their daughter
needed life-saving surgery to
fix a main artery of her heart.
"It never full developed,"
Proctor said. "That put extra
strain on her heart.
"She was gradually dying."
Thankfully, the Proctors'
local pediatrician and heart
specialists at St. Mary's Hos-
pital made the correct diag-
nosis and Mary Elizabeth
was taken by helicopter to
Jackson Memorial Hospital
in Miami where she under-
went life saving open-heart
surgery.
"We were very lucky that
they detected it when they
did," Proctor said. "They
were able to fix the problem.
"Now, she's developing
quite well. She's growing up
the same like everybody else.
"I definitely felt there was
someone looking out for her.
It was God's will if she made
it or not.
"We're definitely lucky He

chose for her to stay with us."
The traumatic experience
not only inspired the Proc-
tors to count their blessings,
but also try to make a differ-
ence in the lives of others.
"After the ordeal with our
daughter, we were
approached by the Universi-
ty of Miami to start an organ-
ization," Proctor said. '"At the
beginning, it just benefited
them.
- '"After I talked with my
agent, family members and
friends, I thought the foun-
dation could do more."
The result was M.E.'s
Team, named after his
daughter.
"It's about helping kids on
the Treasure Coast with
sports and education," Proc-
tor said. "We also make a
donation to the Miller School
of Medicine at the University
of Miami, which does
research and development
into what our daughter had."
Recently, Proctor hosted a
local event to help raise
money for the foundation.
The M.E. Team Celebrity
Benefit Ball and sporting
clays tournament that fol-
lowed the next day were both
a huge success.
"Every donation helps,"
Proctor said. "Whether
someone is paying one cent
or a thousand dollars."
While the experience of
getting to spend time with
Proctor, as well as current
Yankee superstars Johnny
Damon and Kyle Farnsworth
was priceless, the same can
be said of Proctor's career
thus far in the big leagues.


The Los Angeles pitcher has
slowly established himself
into being one of the most
reliable relief pitchers in the
game, although his success
did not come overnight.
After a starring on varsity
for three seasons with Martin
County High School, Proctor
was drafted in the 17th
round by the New York Mets.
Although tempted by the
allure of beginning his Major
League career, Proctor decid-
ed to put his dreams on hold
and hone his skills at the col-
legiate level.
"(Being drafted) that was
awesome," Proctor said. "But
they didn't offer me enough
money to turn down FSU.
"Plus, I wanted to pursue
an education to have some-
thing to fall back on."
Although Proctor didn't
pitch until his senior year
with the Tigers, and then
sparingly because of a stress
fracture in his elbow, he
found a new home on the
mound in Tallahassee.
"When they offered me a
scholarship, they told me to
take my last swings, that
you're a pitcher now," Proc-
tor said. "I had a lot to learn.
"I had some good teachers
and some good teammates."
Proctor shined with the
Seminoles, going 10-2 in 60
games during his stay there.
Proctor's performance
markedly improved his stock
in the draft, elevating him to
a fifth-round pick by the
Dodgers in 1998.

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
With all respects to Web-
ster, passion is spelled
"Holmes."
Former Vero Beach and
New York Giants superstar
Kenny Holmes is enjoying
his first season as head
coach of the semi-pro Fort
Pierce Fire,. which is fitting
since that is what he brings
to the position.
"Kenny brings NFL expe-
rience to the team," part
owner Kurt Holden said. "At
this level that's very rare.
"We're moving along
quickly with Kenny being on'
both sides of the ball."
So far this year, the Fire
has torched its way through
the competition. Counting
its preseason win over the
East Coast Reapers, as well
as its 24-0 shutout of Lowell
during National Bowl Week-
end and its regular season
opening victory over the
Orlando Rage, the Fire is in
serious contention for a
Southern States Football
League championship with
Holmes at the forefront.
"Coaching the Fire, I've
grown to love it," said
Holmes. "It's my third sea-
son this year.
"Before, I was defensive
coordinator/head coach
both previous years. Now,
I'm strictly the head coach.

Mitch Kloorfain/staff photographer
Former Treasure Coast and New York Giants superstar
Kenny Holmes is enjoying his first season as head coach
of the semi-pro Fort Pierce Fire.


"Now, I have to be really
involved in the offense. If
you don't score, you can't
win.
"You have to have a bal-
ance of where to put players.,
When the last whistle has
sounded, you wonder did I
make the right decision?
"Only the great ones do.
That's when you know you
have arrived. When you look
at this guy and look at his
stats and say you're not a
tight end, you're a defensive
end.
"That's what a great coach
did with me."
Holmes is referring to for-
mer Vero Beach head coach
Billy Livings. As a young
player, Holmes bounced
around from position to
position until Livings took
his budding superstar aside
one day.
"I was a quarterback ini-
tially," said Holmes. "Then I
was a defensive back. Then a
tight end.
"He (Livings) came up to
me and said, 'you're not a
tight end, you're a defensive
end. Promise me, you won't
stop thanking me.'
"And I haven't."
Holmes moved on to the
University of Miami where
he became a stalwart of the
legendary Hurricanes'
defense. Appearing in 44
games with Miami, Holmes
recorded 207 tackles and 29
sacks. His play earned him a
spot on two first-team All-
Big East teams.
"That was my first
choice," Holmes said.


"That's every red-blooded
American male's first choice.
"It was the school that had
the camaraderie and spirit
that I wanted to be a part of.
I'm a family guy, and they
had the atmosphere that we
take care of our own. It's us
against the world.
"As long as I know I've got
your back, and you've got
mine. That's the kind of atti-
tude that Miami breeds.
"That's the swagger that
everyone hates. They look at
us overcoming all the odds,
this tiny, tiny school win-
ning national champi-
onships.
"We believe in each other.
We carry that into football
games and into life.
"People misinterpret that.
They hate you just because
you're good.
"That just fuels the fire.
That's the fertilizer for the
Miami greats."
Holmes parlayed his suc-
cess at UM into a first-round
selection by Tennessee in
the 1997 draft.
"That's a feeling I wish
everybody in America could
feel," Holmes said. "It's like
the world has stopped and is
watching your name being
called and watching some of
your better plays."
Holmes quickly made an
impact with Tennessee. His
first career start was on Nov.
9, 1997, against the New
York Giants. Filling in for the
injured James Roberson,
Holmes made five tackles
and a sack.
The following season,


Holmes continued to
improve, recording 46 tack-
les. In 1999, Holmes had
another successful year,
making 38 tackles to go
along with four sacks. It was
in the postseason that he
truly shined, adding two
sacks, seven pressures and a
forced fumble in helping the
Titans to the Super Bowl.
However, there wouldn't
have been an AFC Champi-
onship if not for a spectacu-
lar game-winning play in
the wild card game with the
Buffalo Bills forever known
as the "Music City Miracle."
Down 16-15 with only sec-
onds remaining in the game,
the Titans received the kick-
off with seemingly slim
hopes of getting into field
goal range to attempt the
game winner. Lorenzo Neal
got the ball and handed it off
to tight end Frank Wycheck.
Wycheck in turn lateraled
the ball across the field to
Kevin Dyson, who inexplica-
bly ran down the sidelines
for a 75-yard touchdown
and the win.
"That is the most memo-
rable single play that I'll
carry on with me for the rest
of my life," said Holmes. "I'll
tell my grandkids' grandkids
that I was there."
Unfortunately, the Titans
fell short in their Super Bowl
quest, but Holmes' perform-
ance in the playoffs showed
signs of things to come. In
2000, he enjoyed his finest
season in the pros, estab-
lishing. career-highs in sacks
with eight, tackles with 73
and forced fumbles with
five.
After his career season,
Holmes signed with the New
York Giants as a free agent.
"The Giants organization
is truly iconic," Holmes said.
'Along with Green Bay, you
associate them with Ameri-
can football. It's like the Yan-
kees (in baseball)."
While all his time in prac-
tice and watching game
films had prepared him for
whatever took place on the
football field, nothing read-
ied Holmes for what he
would experience in his first
few games as a Giant the
events of Sept. 11.
"We had just got back
from playing the Broncos on
Monday Night Football,"
Holmes said. "We were at
the same airport -that they
(the terrorists) flew out of.
"We were at the airport
the same time the terrorists
were there. Later, I ate
something and went to lay
down and I heard a boom
and then later another
boom.
"Seeing them (twin tow-
ers) from the Jersey side and
watching those towers fall
knowing people were in
there had me shaken to
watch so many people die.
"People (the players) were
touched. We all said if there
was a draft now, we would
all go to war."
Understandably shaken,
the Giants like the rest of
the world struggled to
return to normalcy follow-
ing the horrific events. New
York returned to the field

Sept. 23, a 13-3 win at
Kansas City. From there, the
Giants struggled to maintain
any consistency, finishing
the season with a 7-9 record.
In 2002, Holmes helped the
Giants to a 10-6 record, '
which was good enough for
second place in the NFC East.
The following season,
Holmes was on pace to have
the greatest season of his
young career before an injury
forced him to the sidelines.. ,
"My knee was too shot,!"'
said Holmes. "I couldn't go
on. I was having my best sea-
son ever.
"The first two or three
games, I had four or five
sacks and then this hap-
pened."
Holmes had arthroscopic


surgery and attempted a
comeback with Green Bay
after signing a one-year deal.
Unfortunately, after playing
with the Packers in the pre-
season, Holmes decided to
end his once-promising
career.
"Everybody expected me
to come back," Holmes said.
"My knee was swollen up. I
couldn't take it anymore. I
decided to retire.
"So long as I don't run
around on it, (my knee) is
::decent. It still hurts, but
being able to walk is a good
thing."
Although he isn't able to
play, his professionalism and
dedication has worn off on
his players. The Fire contin-
ued its domination of the


Southern States Football
League with a 34-13 rout of
the Florida Thunderbirds on
Feb. 2. While his current team
was staying undefeated,
Holmes' former team was
attempting to give the Patri-
ots its,.first loss of the season
in Super Bowl XLII.
"I'm pulling for the Big
Blue to win," Holmes said.
"They have to rush guys up
the middle. I think they have
a chance to win."
Holmes knows a little bit
about the Giants defense,
having played along Michael
Strahan, while helping tutor
defensive end Osi Umenyio-
ra, who was drafted in
Holmes' final year with the
team.
"Me and Strahan were


starting," Holmes said. "I
knew Osi was going to
become real good.
"I still stay in touch with
them. I talked to them before
the Tampa Bay game.
"The Super Bowl is really
distracting by the way. There
is time you have to spend
with the media. Time you
want to spend with your fam-
ily.
"I'll call them before (the
game). On second thought, I
want them to focus on the
game. I'll call them after they
win."
After the Giants' 17-1.4 vic-
tory, it is a call Holmes will
happily make.
"I have to say they've
deserved everything they've
gotten," Holmes said.

through the Dodger farm
system, including stints
with the Vero Beach
Dodgers, Jacksonville Suns
and Las Vegas 51s. Just
when he was on the verge of
making it to the big leagues,
he was traded to the New
York Yankees on July 31,
2003, forcing Proctor to
leave behind the only
organization -he had ever
known.
"It was rough," Proctor
said. "Trying to reestablish
yourself all over again.
"Luckily, I was traded
with someone (Bubba
Crosby) that I had come up
with."
Proctor was assigned to
the Yankees' Triple-A affili-
ate, the Columbus Clip-
pers. He made his Major
League debut the following
season against the Chicago
White Sox on April 20, 2004.
"It was cold," Proctor
said. "I was nervous. It's
something I'll never forget.
"You really feel like you've
made it when you get your
first inning as a pitcher, You
feel like you belong."
Proctor's best year in New
York came in 2006, where he
emerged as one of the best
set-up men in the game.
Proctor led the American
League with 83 appear-
ances, giving manager Joe
Torre a viable alternative


out of the bullpen.
Proctor went 6-4 on the
year with a save in 102.1
innings. He struck out 89
while walking just 33,.
posting a 3.52 ERA.
"It's a constarit battle,"
Proctor said. Redirecting
yourself to get better every
day is a constant battle.
"It's like they say, it's
hard to get to the major
leagues, but it's even hard-
er to stay there."
Unfortunately, despite
his versatility and value to
the team, Proctor was
traded back to the Dodgers
in the latter half of 2007,
bringing the reliever back
to his roots and back home
for spring training for
now.
"I was a little bit down
leaving the Yankees," Proc-
tor said. "It's where a lot of
players dream to play.
"It was like playing for
an All-Star team. It was
priceless. You could sit
down and talk to Derek
Jeter, Roger Clemens,
Randy Johnson, every-
body.
"It was like sitting in a
baseball library. There was
an endless amount of
information.
"But it's the way the,
game is. It's a business.
Proctor finished the sea-
son strong and is looking

forward to 2008 when he
hopes to help lead Los
Angeles to the Promised
Land. The Dodgers fur-
thered its chances of doing
so, but not only adding
Proctor, but by snatching
up his former skipper in
the off season.
"Joe's a phenomenal
manager," Proctor said.
"He's a very competitive
individual. His ultimate
goal is to win."


With Spring Training on
the horizon, Proctor is
hoping the Dodgers can do
just that.
"I'm healthy and ready
to go," Proctor said. "If I
have a good year and we
lose, it's unsuccessful.
"If I have a bad year and
we win a championship,
that's what it's all about.
"But my goal is do my
part and help the team
achieve a championship."
