Community Achievers Award part
of area Black History Month


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
PORT SALERNO -
Hundreds of people filled
the sanctuary of the Port
Salerno Church of God to
laugh, cry and celebrate
as six area residents were
honored during the 2008
Arnold Stanberry Com-
munity Achievers Award
on Feb. 10.
Part of Martin County's
Black History Month cel-
ebrations, the' Achievers
Award is coordinated by
the director of the.
church's Christian Edu-
cation Department,
Xenobia Poiter-Ander-
son, who's also the prin-
cipal at Crystal Lake ele-
mentary school. The
Department works in
conjunction with the
Concerned Citizens of
East Stuart and the New
Monrovia Community
Development Corpora-
tion (NMCDC) to identify
the honorees each year.
This year's award-win-
ners were Helen Fisher,
Willieva Holmes, Charles
E. Jones and the Rev.
Alfred Emerson Patton all
of Port Salerno, John E.


Scott of Stuart, and Thel-
ma Alridge Waters of
Indiantown.
Ms. Fisher helped
found the New Monrovia
Concerned Citizens
group (now the NMCDC)
and served as co-chair-
person of the Port Saler-
no Neighborhood Advi-
sory Committee and a
secretary for the Port
Salerno Unit of the Boys
and Girls Clubs of Ameri-
ca.
An employee of the
Martin County Board of
Commissioners for
almost 30 years, she said
she saw first-hand how
the late local activist
Arnold Stanberry for
whom the Achievers
Award is named -
strived to improve the
lives of local black citi-
zens.
"So it is with honor that
I accept this award, and I
just thank God for the
ability to use my talents
to contribute to the com-
munity and life in gener-
al," she said.

MARTIN COUNTY -
New development in
Indiantown has become a
test of wills between
county slow-growth advo-
cates and those who want
to infuse the area with
more economic vitality.
Although too far from
Stuart to be considered a
suburb, Indiantown has


. been attracting the atten-
tion of real estate devel-
opers due to its available
land and easy driving dis-
tance to both Stuart and
West Palm Beach.
According to Joe Bamfi,
principal planner for the
county's Growth Manage-
ment department, devel-
opers have proposed
building thousands of

STUART As much as
Commissioner James
Christie wanted to provide
affordable housing to the
residents of East Stuart, he
and the rest of the city
commission couldn't over-
come their greatest obsta-
cle: the residents of East
Stuart.
Commissioners had
hoped to begin construc-
tion soon on the proposed
El Dorado Park workforce
housing project on an
eight-acre piece of city-


owned land wedged
between East 10th Street
and Dixie Highway, but
failed to reach a consensus
during their Feb. 11 meet-
ing. None of the neighbor-
ing residents spoke out in
favor of the project.
Commissioner Michael
Mortell attributed the lack
of support to the "not in
my backyard" mentality.
"Many people say they
are for affordable housing,
but then later say they
don't want it in their neigh-
borhood," he said. "I don't
think the impact is going

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.
Eliminate the Dealer Fee .


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "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 "My cu

to be as dramatic as you
think,"
Commissioner Christie
pleaded with the residents
to understand the need of
others to enjoy the benefits
of home ownership,
"I think the idea of reject-.
ing what is an opportunity
for someone else for
whatever reason is not
the American way," he said.
"We're trying to provide
homes for people, and that
means neighborhoods, and
improving the neighbor-
hood that is already there."
The commissioner also
tried to defuse the resi-
dents' fear of low-income
residents moving into the


neighborhood.
"Today, when we say
affordable, we don't mean
'poor,' we mean anything
from a lost middle class to
upward from there," he
explained.
Both the single-family
homes and townhouses
would only have been eligi-
ble for first-time homebuy-
ers who earned between
$19,100 and $75,960 annu-
ally, depending on the
number of dependents.
One of the residents
opposed to the project, Bob
Downey, said it was flawed
because the minimum
salary requirements would-

mortgage payments on the
loans.
"It wouldn't have worked
because the minimum
income was going to be
$20,000 a year, and that
kind of income cannot pay
for a mortgage on the
$120,000 house," he said.
A consortium of local
banks and lending institu-
tions had agreed to finance
the homes at favorable
interest rates. According to
figures prepared by plan-
ning consultant Terry
O'Neil, the payment for the
entire $120,000 portion
financed at a 6.5 percent
interest rate would have
been approximately $758.
Coupled with property
taxes and insurance, the
monthly payment :would
have totaled $1,218.
Mr. O'Neil explained that
down payment assistance
would have also been avail-
able for the buyers and that
the slowing economy
would, have also helped
them.
"Things were changing,
and we could possibly even
have brought down the
$120,000 to $105,000 with
the down payment assis-
tance," he said. "The mar-
ket has been changing late-
ly, and the .economic
circumstances were actual-
ly working in the project's
favor."
The buyers, he added,
would never have actually
purchased the home lots,
which would have been
deeded to them by the city
with a second mortgage,
payable upon the future
sale of property.
Still, when Commissioner
Mortell asked the approxi-
mate value of the lot, the
total figure of at least
$80,000 left him stunned.
'fThen, when we're talk-
ing about affordable hous-
ing, we're talking about a
$200,000 house," he said.
Commissioners had been
pressured to complete the
project since the city had
been awarded almost $1
million in hurricane hous-
ing assistance funds by the
county and $110,000 in
community-based organi-
zation funds for infrastruc-
ture and other expenses.
City Manager Dan Hud-
son said the funds must
now be returned, after the
commission vote to
approve the project failed,
with only commissioners
Mortell and Christie back-
ing it. He attributed the lack
of support to changing
housing market conditions.
"I think part of the view is
that there is a declining
housing market and there is
less demand and more
houses on the market," he
said. "And we don't want to
be in competition with the
private sector."
Before the vote, Commis-
sioner Mortell said if it
failed, then the commission
should simply "pull the
plug" on it. Commissioner
Carol Waxier, one of the dis-
senters, said she agreed
with him that it was "time
to get on with it."
"This is a real tough situ-
ation, and it's a beautiful
project," she said. "Even so,
I don't want to spend
money because I have the
opportunity to spend it."
Commissioner Mortell
warned the residents
opposed to the project that
if the vote failed, he would
then make a motion to then
deny it, which would legally
keep the project from com-
ing back before the com-
mission for a period of two
years.
The commissioner kept
his word, and the commis-
sion voted immediately
after the failed vote to deny
the project. That measure
passed, with Commissioner
Christie dissenting.
Although there are no
other affordable housing
projects currently in the
works, Mr. Christie says
he'll continue trying to get
workforce housing for the


city.
"I'm going to continue to
fight for affordable housing
because we need affordable
housing," he said. "That
should be important to
every citizen in this city."

United Way Foundation donation


to help Boys & Girls Clubs project


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The United Way of Martin
County Foundation recent-
ly presented a $10,000
check to help the Boys and
Girls Clubs' drive to create a
facility in Palm City.
The check marks the sec-
ond installment in a
$20,000 United Way of Mar-
tin County Foundation
grant. It also was the dona-
tion that enabled the Boys &
Girls- Clubs to achieve its
capital campaign goal of
$300,000.
"The Foundation Board
was pleased to make this
special gift to meet one of


United Way's priority need
areas ensuring that youth
have enriching, safe envi-
ronments to help them
make good decisions, and
stay in school," said Jennifer
Jolly, United Way of Martin
County Foundation direc-
tor.
The Boys and Girls Clubs
of Martin County will now
be able to 'transform the old
Palm City firehouse on Mar-
tin Downs Boulevard into a
new clubhouse that will
provide quality after-school
and summer activities for
youth in Palm City.
The .Boys and Girls Clubs
have been using space at
Immanuel. Lutheran


Church. The church loca-
tion started out with just a
teen program, but it has
turned into a full-service
center serving children
from ages 6 to 18 so a
larger facility was needed.
The agency will continue
to raise funds for a $200,000
endowment to maintain the
building over the years.
"The Boys and Girls Club
has wonderful programs for
the youth in our communi-
ty, and the addition of a
Palm City facility is very
exciting," said Vicki Junod
Wackeen, United Way of
Martin County Foundation
chairwoman. "The United
Way of Martin County


Foundation is proud to help
them complete their capital
campaign goal."
The Foundation exists to
support United Way of Mar-
tin County's mission to
increase the organized
capacity of people to care
for one another. It provides
a long-term base of support
and the flexibility to
strengthen our community
as it changes and grows.

No easing of water restrictions
for Jupiter Island residents

It was not a happy Valentine's Day for officials of
the South Martin Regional Utility, whose request to
be exempt from tighter water restrictions imple-
mented on Jan. 15, was denied by the South Florida
Water Management District on Feb. 14.
Water managers and SMRU attorney Philip Gildan
had argued that the town of Jupiter Island and neigh-
boring Hobe Sound have received above average
rainfall for this time of year, requesting to allow land-
scape watering three days a week.
Although SFWMD officials conceded that the
aquifer levels were at an historic high for this time of
year, spokesman Jesus Rodriguez said that rainfall
across the Martin-St. Lucie county metro area was
still 15 percent below normal for the last 30 days.
They have agreed to consider a two-day-a-week
watering compromise next month that was proposed
by SMRU officials.
Martin County Commissioner Michael DiTerlizzi
asked the SFWMD board members to look at Martin
County's rainfall total as a whole, as well as consider
the damaging effect the tighter watering restrictions
could have on the local economy. Lake Okeechobee,
the main source of drinking water for much of
Southeast Florida, is still four and-a-half feet below
normal for this time of year.

State rejects Valliere Amendment for
clustering homes in the west

Officials for the state Department of Community
Affairs rejected the Martin County Land Protection
Incentives amendment to the county's comprehen-
sive plan on Feb. 14, saying that it didn't comply with
state law or the county's own comprehensive plan.
The state's comprehensive planning chief, Mike
McDaniel, said the amendment known as the Val-
liere Amendment for its chief sponsor county com-
missioner Susan Valliere needed more guarantees
that the land set aside for conservation would
remain as such.
In its current form, the amendment requires devel-
opers in far-western Martin County to donate up to
half of their developable land for conservation in
exchange for "clustering" the housing developments
on the remaining half. The provision requiring the
developers to place the conservation portion of the
land in a private land trust with a conservation ease-
ment by three governmental agencies is insufficient
a guarantee, Mr. McDaniel says.
County planner Clyde Dulin says the Valliere
Amendment can be salvaged by a simple rewording
of the provision, but the two county commissioners
opposed to the amendment, Sarah Heard and Lee
Weberman, say the state has backed their opinion

"It's not logical, it's not
timely, it hurts our existing
neighborhoods and it
hurts our urban service
boundary."
Commissioner Michael
Di leli.,i, who represents
part of Indiantown,
emphasized that the devel-
oper, the Irongate Group,
could have put even more
units on the land in ques-
tion 2,500 if the com-
pany had not requested a
zoning change for the
planned unit develop-
ment.
"So you're reducing in
excess of 900 units in what
could be developed," he
said. "In Martin County, I
would rate that a tremen-
dous public benefit
because we all know how
we like things low density
and low rise in Martin
County."
Irongate partner Kirk


Lazaruk said the develop-
ment was in line with the
county's vision because
the project planners were
the same ones who
designed the Indiantown
overlay and redevelop-
ment plan.
"We have embraced and
enhanced the vision and
the promise of
Indiantown, as it's been
conveyed to me by my
planners, my engineers,
and much more impor-
tantly, by the people of
Indiantown," he said.
Indiantown resident
Mark Matson asked com-
missioners why they never
asked the residents what
they desired for their area.
"I am totally in favor of
this project," he said. "I
want this thing approved
100 percent, all phases of
it, from A to Z."
Palm City resident and
Stuart businessman Ed
Campi, who's running for
the seat to be vacated by
Commissioner DiTerlizzi,
said he's talked with a lot of
people in Indiantown
about their vision for the
future.


"I think it's difficult when
people on the east coast of
the county try to dictate
what's happening on the
west coast in Indiantown,"
he said. "They're living
almost in what would be
considered a time warp."
Mr. Campi emphasized
that developing in
Indiantown is a Catch-22
situation, since residents
need more services and
new businesses need more
residents.
"I understand as a local
business person, you can't
expect businesses to head
out and build on spec,
hoping that the people will
come," he said.
Mr. Lazaruk explained
that the developer was
ready to move forward
with the engineering
phase of the project and
would not wait upon the
housing market to
improve.
"We hope that that will
allow the other commer-
cial and industrial uses to
play off of us, if you will,
because they will see that
there is movement in the
residential sector," he said.
The county's slow
response to Indiantown
development requests has
had many residents calling
for incorporation. Some of
the commissioners,
including Chairman Doug
Smith, say they wouldn't
blame the community for


trying to break free from
the county's slow-growth
management style.
"If my destiny was held
up by the East Coast and
all of the craziness that
goes on here, I'd incorpo-
rate," he said. "Quite
frankly, I think that
Indiantown is entitled to
that opportunity."
Some residents, such as
Iris Wall, the owner of
W&W Lumber, say they
resist the idea of incorpo-
ijiow ) because it would
bring city taxes on top of
county taxes. Local busi-
ness leaders, including the
president of the
Indiantown/Western Mar-
tin County Chamber of
Commerce, Scott Watson,
have said they would pre-
fer to try and work with the
county before resorting to
incorporation.
The commission is slat-
ed to vote Feb. 26 on
another proposed
Indiantown project, the
Quillen DRI. If approved
by the county, it would add
2,250 more homes and
150,000 square feet of
commercial space to pro-
posed Indiantown devel-
opment. The developers of
both the Indiantown and
Quillen DRIs are shooting
for development by late
2009 or early 2010, when
many in the housing
industry believe the mar-
ket will be on the upswing.

Baseball doesn't deserve our support

Baseball still doesn't get it. Reaction by all in the game,
from the commissioner down, to Sen. (George) Mitchell's
scathing report on its worst scandal has been a yawn.
Incredible.
Bud Selig is an embarrassment. He was "going to act." He
should have acted at the press conference with an initial
round of lifetime suspensions. Weeks later, he has still not
acted. Obviously, he has no intention of acting.
He said he was going to reach out to players. If there ever
was a time for that, it is long past. What about reaching out
to fans? His job was to protect the integrity of baseball. He
has failed miserably.
Let us make a fresh start.
Where is the FBI? Agents should have been knocking on
doors within hours of the Mitchell Report. Players travel
across state lines. Weeks later, we have not a single arrest.
FBI has copies of actual invoices, etc., in the report, but
nothing is happening. Is baseball really above the law?
Players continue to give fans and Sen. Mitchell the silent
treatment. Only two players would meet with him accord-
ing to reports.
They insulted Congress likewise, and they will again, no
doubt. Donald Fehr, players' association (executive direc-
tor), persists in defending the offenders while decent play-
ers get tarred unfairly with the same brush. Forget asterisks
beside their suspect records. Delete the records entirely.
Fans, especially parents and grandparents, have to get
baseball's attention at the ticket office.
Vow now not to darken a stadium gate next spring, unless
major changes have occurred. Head instead to a local ball-
park. Enjoy the real thing, a Little League game. Cheer on
kids who love the (game), not the money.
They deserve our support.

The haves must understand have-nots

Because much violence and instability comes from huge
discrepancies between the ability of different groups to pro-
vide the basics of life, the most powerful groups will be
viewed with anger and suspicion.
To reduce the rage, the economically better-off groups
need to understand more clearly and deal with the needs of.,
those with whom we share the globe.
Because we cannot wall ourselves off from infectious dis-
eases, pollution or terrorist attacks within our own counum', ,
let alone from without, tnie security will come only from
recognizing interdependence from programs of human
capital investment and from full cooperation in interna-
tional treaties and organizations.
These three goals must be vigorously pursued.

Vick deserves punishment he get

I'm writing in response to the cruel and uncaring letter,
"Prosecuting MichaelVick is ridiculous."
Does this person not know what kind of example Vick is
setting for children and adults alike? People may have once
respected him or at least envied his skill but now they're
disgusted, and rightly so. Dog fighting is a terrible contest
where two dogs are trained to be vicious and are placed in a
pit to fight for entertainment.
This is a gambling sport that often drags in the very mur-
derers and drug dealers that this.person isso worried about.
He (or she) also fails to recognize the intelligence of dogs. .
A human's intelligence is based loosely upon problem
solving, memory, ability to learn, ability to reason and abili-
ty to communicate. Not only are dogs capable of all of
these, they are also thought to have the intelligence of a 3-
year-old child. Had Michael Vick abused children, made
them fight each other until the other was dead, how would
you feel?
I think you might agree that Vick deserves his sentence, if
not a longer one.

People, not machines, should
answer business phones

fAre you as sick as I am of voice prompts, voice prompts
and more voice prompts when making a simple phone call?
If you're a business that wants to do business, then
answer your own phone. And, please don't leave us on
music hold forever.

Money shouldn't be decider
in quality of health care

About four weeks ago, I went to the emergency room with


severe abdominal pain. They did the usual tests and told me
to follow up with my doctor.
I don't have medical insurance, like many others, and I
cannot afford to have it and can't afford not to. When I called
my doctor, the (office) refused to make any payment
arrangements with me in order to come for a visit. Turns out
I had to borrow money and paid $73 for a repeat of the tests
and to be told to get another test; what a waste of time and
money..
Three weeks later, I had to follow up (with) the new test
(and was told that the doctor) did want to do a surgery.
Again, that could nbt be done because I'm not rich and have
no health insurance. There really aren't any doctors in the
area that accept Medicaid, so I'll have to continue to be in
pain until either I get the money or health insurance. Med-
icaid is only accepted for children, elderly and the pregnant,
but they are not the only ones who need help. It's funny
(when) the very people who say they care about their
patients won't do anything to help them get a procedure
done, i.e. payment plans.
I know it's not (only) the doctors who are behind this. The
problem is much deeper and something really needs to be
done.
I know that I'm not the only one this happens to. Many go
without; yet, no one should hayel the right to decide whose,
life should be saved and whose quality of life is more valu-
able especially when it comes to money.

Don't let Republican slogans sway
you from voting Democrat

President Bush and his corporate collaborators have
ruined our country. Our living expensess have skyrocketed:
27 percent (increase) on health premium, insurances, gas,
food, tuitions, drugs and everything else going up by the
day. Foreclosures have reach an, all-time high.
Baby (boomers) have to postpone retirement due to their
depleted investments, trillions of dollars of stock market
wealth was lost since Bush took office.
The Clinton $5 trillion surplus was spent in less than two
years, and now we owe almost as much to the Chinese.
The future of our children and grandchildren is seriously
at risk. Please voice your discontent by voting Democrat
this election. Do not let these Republican political TV ads
scare you their slogans. "They are going to raise your taxes,"
or "you will not be safe" will network this time.

What will we give soldiers
when they return home?

I am writing to you because I dm fearful that when the war
ends and many thousands of sons, daughters, moms, dads,
aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors return home from
serving our country, we will riot have enough resources
available for them.
There are millions of dollars spent on aid to illegal immi-
grants in Florida and across' the United States. Our
resources are already overburdened. Unemployment is on
the rise and the price of everything has doubled in the last
five years. We are headed for a recession.
I am not against immigration, but the word illegal means
the same in every dictionary. Many of our troops will need
assistance with medical (care), housing and financial aid.
They risked their lives for us. What will we have to offer
them?

What are the qualities by which a candidate may be evalu-
ated to be worthy of your support and vote?,
Core concerns: By his speeches, Web 'site, issues state-
ments, interviews, writings, etc., a candidate should indi-
cate what he really cares about and what values and issues
are most important to him. Or, does he just seem to be say-


ing the right things because winning the office seems to be
what is most important to him? The core concerns of the
candidate you support should resonate with you..
Completeness: No candidate is perfect, but even if he
agrees with some of your basic concerns, ,does .he differ
much on others?
Character: I hope we have learned that character matters,
particularly in a leader. Are his actions consistent with what
he says and the policies and ideals he promotes?
Courage: Does he have the courage to stand up to ene-
mies and opposition, even among the media, colleagues,
and his own party, to do what is right?
Conviction: Does he really have conviction about what he
espouses? Or, do his views seem to be influenced by the lat-
est polls? Will he take a stand against our enemies?
Commitment: This goes along with courage and convic-
tion. Has he shown that he is willing to persevere, that he is
committed to the cause or causes for which he has spoken?
Consistency: Along with the previous qualities mentioned
goes consistency. Has he been steady in his course? Or, has
recently adopted policies popular with the constituency
whose votes he is trying to win?
Comprehension: Does the candidate have a good under-
standing of what he espouses? We live in a day of cue cards.
.Some may say the right things without fully believing or
understanding them.
Capability: Does] the candidate have the capacity and
ability to carry out his plans if given the opportunity? Here a'
candidate may be evaluated by his experience, including
campaigns for office as well as offices held.
Communicative ability: Part of the reason Ronald Reagan
was and still is regarded as a great president is because he
was known as a great communicator. He got his message:
across. Even his enemies understood where he stood.
In my opinion, among Democratic and Republican cur-
rent candidates on our ballots for president, Alan Keyes bests
meets the criteria for my support and vote.

A vote for one Clinton
will bring in the other one

This is a response to "This 89-year-old is a firm Clinton
supporter."
I'm 88 and I, too, have voted for male presidents and,
(have) seen them come and go. I started voting Democrat,
and eventually I came to vote Republican. If you bring in
Hillary Clinton, you are also bringing in Mr. Clinton; who,
almost destroyed our government and had no respect for
the oval office.
Hillary Clinton will bring socialism to this country. Just
watch her and be careful what you do.

Ranter reads between lines
of pro-Clinton support

To "This 89-year-old is a firm Clinton supporter:" Let's see
your letter with my take on it in italics.
I have seen male presidents come (no comment) and I've
seen male presidents go some good (Reagan), some bad:
(Carter), and evil (Clinton and Clinton).
A mother brings forth a new citizen and gives tender, lov-
ing care to the helpless (It takes a village). She cooks (except
cookies) she sews and cleans (must have missed the blue
dress). She teaches right from wrong (Right, as in right wing
conspiracy, wrong as in "these allegations are false!"). She
budgets to stretch every dollar to make ends meet (She will
budget every one of our dollars she can get her hands on for
taxes, social programs that won't work, health care pro-
grams that won't work, etc.). She has the know how. (All she
knows how to do is talk and blame. She has done NOTHING
but run for office.).
Hillary Clinton has been around the block, she knows

Rants & Raves
From page A6
where it's at (but she has no experience at doing anything
but window shopping). It's no secret, I'm voting for Hillary
Clinton (God help our country if she gets elected).

Roaming sting operation
could slow down speeders .
I have moved from the Northeast to this wonderful para-
dise. I thought I saw all the bad driving in the North, until I
came to Florida. I have traveled in much of our country and
this is the worst. I have seen many rants and raves on this
subject and how to eliminate it.
I, too, have a suggestion. If the larger cities and towns
were to loan one or two of their patrol cars with officers to
the county and/or state police, you could have a sting oper-
ation on individual days and then move to another part of
the county with no notice to anyone. If speeders were
unaware of where the sting might take place, most of them
would be reluctant to drive dangerously. I hope one of the
agencies would adopt this or a similar plan. Something
should be done and soon.
Editor's note: According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the
agency is required to notify the media through a press release
stating the time, date and place of any planned DUI or safety
checkpoint. However, Florida Highway Patrol is not required
to purchase a paid advertisement or public notice announc-
ing the checkpoint. Their sole responsibility is to notify the
media, who, in turn, can do with the information as they
please. Also, the FHP and the host law enforcement agency
conducting the checkpoint are required to provide an exit
point from the checkpoint by a side or connecting road. Addi-
tionally, the law does not require drivers to pass through the
checkpoint. They are allowed to exit the thoroughfare under
inspection through any available side street.

Republican Party has perfected the spin cycle
The ranter who accused liberals of being phony made me
angry.
The ranter used the three political tactics that Republican
Party has perfected.
They accuse the Democrats of doing exactly what they,
the Republicans, are doing
Let's look at corruption. Republicans sitting in jail: Randy
Cunningham (California), Bob Ney (Ohio), Jack Abramoff
(lobbyist). Republicans convicted of crimes: Scooter Libby
(White House), Larry Craig (Idaho. Republican leader
indicted, awaiting trial: Tom DeLay (Texas). Florida Republi-
cans with legal and ethical troubles: Bob Allen and Mark
Foley.
Republicans throw out baseless accusations that eat up
news time
It's the old game of asking "When did you stop beating
your wife?" There is no good answer for the falsely accused.
You are either defending yourself or admitting it. (For exam-
ple) President Clinton, when did you stop raping women?
Republicans equate viscous, juvenile and personal
attacks to Democrats pointing out false statements made by
Republicans
For example, when Democrats pointed out former attor-
ney general Roberto Gonzalez made contradictory state-
ments, this is seen by the Republicans as equivalent to Ann
Coulter calling liberals godless. It's not the same thing.


Spin, baseless accusations, misleading statements thrown
out to the media, this is what the Republican Party has per-
fected.

If you can see better only in
the left lane, you should stay home
To "Ranters should find better things to complain about:"
What a strange, chicken-feed column. Your thoughts are so
scattered and disorganized that I had to pick the one pellet
that stuck in my craw the worst.
It's your driving.
1. You are causing the worst road hazard by driving slow in
the fast lane. Move over. If you can't, then stay home. If
someone needs to drive faster, it is none of your business;
yet, it is your responsibility to get out of the way.
2. If your "vision is not so good anymore" and somehow
you can "see better in the left lane," you should not be driv-
ing.

Be courteous when driving; stay to the right
In your Rants & Raves, there was a gentleman who said
that he drives five miles over the speed limit and if anybody
wants to pass, they can go around him.
The rule of the road is slower traffic will go to the right and
passing traffic will go to the left. And even though he feels
five miles over the speed limit nobody should be going
more than that, it doesn't work that way. There's always, no
matter who it is, someone who always wants to go faster
than you. My rule of thumb always goes this way: If cars are
passing me on the right, I am going too slow and I should
move over. I should be in that lane.
So, for the gentleman, please don't stay out in the left,
slower traffic moves to the right, and always remember,
somebody will be going faster than you. Always, whether it
be an emergency vehicle, police or someone in a hurry.
Please move over and you will do a great favor to all the
drivers.

Daughter upset by
adults' embarrassing questions
My daughter, who is 11 years old, uses a wheelchair.
Millions of adults ask her what happened to her and asks
if she has a "boo-boo."
It's embarrassing and humiliating. They would never ask
an adult that who was in a wheelchair. Please stop and think
about my child's feelings.

Tired of insiders getting to be president
I am responding to "Supporting Hillary, Obama lacks
experience."
Hopefully, the large turnout resulting in (Barack) Obama
and (Mike) Huckabee being victorious in Iowa sends a
strong message with similar response from the remaining
49 states. Americans are getting fed up with hearing Obama
is not experienced enough to be president. I suppose the
current president had enough experience, but look at the
present status of the country.
An intelligent president would surround himself with
(honest, trustworthy) advisors on matters of fighting wars. It
has been a few years since I studied American government. I
recall a system of check and balances where the United
States government consists of three branches of govern-


ment: executive, legislative and judicial. They are supposed
to work with and help keep the president in check, as well as
presidential advisors to include military.
The problem with the policies of President Bush are they
are mostly bad because of him or bad advice from his cho-
sen advisors. The problem with Hillary is that she is an
insider tied to lobbyists and big businesses, the very thing
Americans are sick and tired of. Some people are tired of
hearing too much or not enough experience when it comes
(African Americans).
Iowa got it right. Thank you Iowans. I am not loyal to any
person or party. As an American born in the Tennessee and
who served in the U.S. Air Force for more than 22 years, I
have the right to vote for whomever I desire. If someone
takes an offense, that is his or her problem.

Blames Clinton, Democrats for war in Iraq
This is for the party that left me many years ago, the
Democratic party.
I'm really upset with this party, the way they have of dou-
ble-talking. They want to keep making changes. Well, we
saw the changes that were made in the last senatorial and
the congressional elections. The changes were nothing.
They didn't do (anything).
For Hillary to get up in a debate and to take a slap at the
president because (he) went to war, that's abominable. How
dare (she)? The reason we went to war is because her hus-
band was a coward. He wouldn't fight back if they hit him in
the face.
That's the reason we are at war, because the Democrats
and Mr. "Greatest President of All Time" William Clinton
didn't do (their jobs).

Don't get too eager to turn right,
and don't forget to signal
This is for the ranter who offers a test for some bad driv-
ers. He suggests that when someone is making a left turn
with a green arrow, they are supposed to stay in the left
lane all the way through the turn. He is patently wrong.
When someone is making a left turn on a green arrow into
a two-lane road, he can enter into either lane he cares to,
left or right, obviously he needs to get into the right lane if
he needs to get into a corner lot of some sort.
This ranter needs to know that when you are making a
right turn on red light, you are not permitted to make that
right turn unless all areas are clear on all directions.
This is pretty basic.
He suggests in thinking the opposite and to check with
the sheriff. I advise him to look in the Florida drivers man-
ual for validation of the points I just made.
Someone who's making right-hand turns in front of
people turning left with green arrows are posing a big
danger on highways, and this guy is totally wrong.
Editor's note: To clarify, when making a right turn on
red, you must come to a complete stop and yield to traffic
that may be turning left onto the roadway. However, a per-
son turning left must stay in the left lane and must signal
his intention to get into the right lane and not just immedi-
ately turn into that lane. Too often, drivers just meander
over without signaling their intention. Remember, other
drivers are not psychic.

W Fen you retire, it
would be conven-
WV ient if all!your
expenses were to "retire" as
well. But they won't.
In fact, you'll likely need
between 80 and 100 percent
of your pre-retirement
income to maintain your
standard of living on
retirement. And you may
even need more, depending
on what you plan to do in
your retirement years.
Well before you retire, ask
yourself a couple of key
questions: Where will the
money come from? And
when can I get it?
Let's take a look at some of
your likely retirement
income pools, along with
the rules governing with-
drawals from these sources.
401 (k) plan- If you have
a 401 (k) plan at work, take
full advantage of it. Your
earnings have the potential
to grow on a tax-deferred
basis and you typically
contribute pre-tax dollars,
so the more you put in, the
lower your adjusted annual
taxable income. Generally,
you have to be at least 59 1-
2 to withdraw money from
your 401 (k) without
incurring a penalty of 10
percent of the taxable
amount of your withdrawal.
However, you can avoid this
penalty under the following
circumstances:
You leave your employer
when you are at least 55
years old, or you become
disabled.
You take a series of equal
periodic payments, made at
least annually, for your life
of life expectancyy. ,.
You "oil over"' our 401 (k) :
withdrawals into an IRA.,Of
. course, you may not want.
or need, to tap into your
401 (k) at either age 55 or 59

can leave your bank
account alone and, hopeful-
ly, watch it continue to have
the potential to grow. But
you will have to start taking
withdrawals when you
reach 70 1-3, if youhaven't
already done so.
IRA -- As is the case
with your 401 (k), you will, in
most cases, have to pay a 10
percent tax penalty if you
take distributions form your
IRA before age 59 1-2. And
you must begin taking
required minimum distri-
butions from a Traditional
IRA once you reach 70 1-2.
If you have a Roth IRA, you
may face no mandatory
distribution rules, so you
never have to touch the
money, which means it can
potentially grow tax-free for
years.
Social Security-You
can start taking Social.

Mets expect a sweet season


New York Mets
bullpen coach
Guy Conti works
with new player
Johan Santana,
who was acquired
in the off-season,
during the first
week of spring
training at
Tradition Field in
Port St. Lucie. The
Mets will play
their first spring
training exhibition
game against the
University of
Michigan on
Tuesday, Feb. 26,
at noon.

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
Have you ever sat in a
restaurant and spied the last
piece of New York style
cheesecake behind the
dessert counter only to see
several other people with the
same idea, but they have
enough to pay for it.
However, lo and behold
the -other suitors decide the
treat is too rich for them and
leave, while the manager
decides to cut his price, mak-
ing it impossible to pass up.
As you're sitting there
enjoying your good fortune,
you suddenly wonder, was it
worth it?
Unlike the cheesecake, the
New York Mets and its fans
are having no such buyer's
remorse, as the club begins
Spring Training in Port St.
Lucie. Expectations are high
after Minnesota Twins' ace
pitcher Johan Santana was
deemed too expensive by the
New York Yankees and
Boston Red Sox and fell into
the waiting arms of Mets'
general manager Omar
Minaya.
Overall, the Mets gave up
very little in return, and the
club was able to sign Santana
Sto a six-year, $137.5 million
deal with the hopes that its
investment will pay divi-
dends every October.
The biggest question is
whether Santana will wilt
under the pressure of playing
in the Big Apple (i.e. Randy


Johnson) or thrive and make
fans forget about the team's
horrific collapse last season
when it blew a seven-game
lead in the final 17 games of
the season.
"I think we felt the pres-
sure in the last couple of
weeks," David Wright said. "I
don't want to feel like I felt in
October watching the other
teams play.
"Hopefully, we can take
some positives out of it."
For now, everything is rosy
and Santana adds to a staff
that finished seventh in the-
National League with a 4.26
ERA. He is a significant
upgrade over Tom Glavine,
who returned to the Braves
to finish out his career.
"He is looking forward to it
(the season)," Mets' skipper
Willie Randolph said of San-
tana. "He's going to be a real
asset to the club."
Santana leads the majors
in wins (90), ERA (2.89) and
strikeouts (983) since 2004
and should complement
Pedro Martinez nicely at the
top of the rotation. Martinez
pitched well after returning
from rotator-cuff surgery
and the duo should make a
formidable 1-2 punch.
Both John Maine and Oliv-
er Perez made great strides
last season in helping to lead
the Mets in Martinez's
absence. Both exceeded
expectations and had similar
stats with Maine going 15-10
with a 3.91 ERA while Perez
went 15-10 with a 3.56 ERA.


The tandem is still relative-
ly young at 26 years old and
should benefit from Mar-
tinez's and Santana's leader-
ship and experience.
Minaya has stated that the
No. 5 spot in the rotation
belongs to Orlando Hernan-
dez, but Mike Pelfrey
remains in contention
despite going 0-7 in his,.first
10 starts. Pelfrey did shinein
his first win of the season,
beating the Braves Sept. 1 at
Turner Field.
The 24-year old allowed
just one bit while striking out
seven in six innings on that
day, giving a glimpse of what
the Mets',.brass had been
looking forall year.
The bullpen should be
much improved with the
return of Duaner, Sanchez.
Sanchez missed all of 2007
after surgery on his right
shoulder and should help
provide a bridge along with
Aaron Heilmnah, Pedro Feli-
ciano and Scott Schoeneweis
from the starters to Billy
Wagner. V
Wagner had an exception-
al season, recording 34 saves
and will be called on again to
close out the opposition.
The Mets got another good
year offensively fr9m one of
its young stars in David
Wright. Wright had a& solid
year all around with 30 home
runs and 34 stolen bases to
go with a .325 batting aver-
age.

From page A10
Jose Reyes' performance
drew mixed reviews. While
he stole a major league
leading 78 bases while
scoring 119 runs, he only
hit 12 home runs while
driving in 57 RBIs., Reyes
batted .280, but struggled
down the stretch, con-
tributing to the Mets' epic
flop.
Although with consider-
able less fanfare than San-
tana, Luis Castillo came to
the Mets last year from
Minnesota and provided
stability at second base. He
hit .301 while stealing 10
bases in his brief Mets'
stint. Castillo and Reyes
formed an excellent dou-
ble-play combination,
solidifying the right side of
the infield.
One of the biggest disap-
pointments of 2007 was the
performance of first base-
man Carlos Delgado.
Perennially a power threat,
Delgado's numbers dipped
dramatically last season
with just 24 home runs and
87 RBIs to his credit. His
RBI total was the lowest


since 1995.
The outfield is filled with
potential but also with its
share of question marks.
Left field belongs to Moises
Alou who showed flashes of
brilliance .341 with 13
home runs and 49 RBIs -
in 328 at-bats last season.
However, the 41-year-old
appeared in fewer than 100
games for the second
straight season.
In center will be Carlos
Beltran. Beltran had a solid
year, leading the Mets with
33 home runs and 112 RBIs,
He stole 23 bases and at 30
years old is still capable of
being a legitimate threat on
the basepaths.
While deemed untouch-
able for most of his career
with the Mets, Lastings
Milledge was finally dealt
to the Washington Nation-
als for Ryan Church and
Brian Schneider. Church
will see most of the action
in right field for the Mets
after hitting .272 with 15
home runs and 70 RBIs last
season.
"He's my right fielder,"


Randolph said. "Hopefully,
this is the year he'll put it
all together."
In its continuing quest to
replace Mike Piazza, the
Mets let Paul Lo Duca leave
via free agency, satisfied
with the combination of
Schneider and Ramon Cas-
tro at catcher. Schneider
should be an improvement
behind the plate, although
his offensive numbers of a
year ago leave something
to be desired.
"He's a real take charge
kind of catcher," Randolph
said. "He has a little pop in
his bat. He hits above aver-
age."
Castro did have a good
season at the plate hit-
ting .285 with 11 home runs
and 31 RBIs in just 144 at-
bats.
No one will be on the
hotseat this season more
than Randolph unless
considering his counter-
part across town. However,
unlike Joe Girardi who
starts fresh with the Yan-
kees this season, Randolph
was skewered in the media


and by fans alike after the
Mets' demise last season.
The Mets' brass decided to
bring him back, hoping his
leadership and experience
will help push the team to
the postseason.
Overall, the Mets are a
much-improved club
entering.2008. The acquisi-
tion of Santana gives the
Mets its first legitimate ace
since the days of Dwight
Gooden and David Cone.
The deal could go down as
one of the most successful
ones in the team's storied
history alongside the
trades for Keith Hernandez
and Gary Carter.
Unlike though swaps,
however, Santana joins a
team that is loaded with tal-
ent while the former Mets'
icons joined clubs that were
historically bad for many
years. The deal will ulti-
mately be judged on
whether Santana can help
bring New York its first
World Series title since those
Carter and Hernandez-filled
days of 1986 or just another
"Wait 'till next year."

Travel around Tahitian


paradise the Gauguin way


If you need to relax and
want complete rest, this
is the trip for you.
We left Orlando on a
Friday afternoon and spent
the night in Los Angeles.
The next day we flew to
Tahiti, where the air is
fresh and the people are as
accommodating as anyone
could be.
We boarded Radisson's
M/V Paul Gauguin Cruise
Ship and were put into
another world. We were
waited on as if we were the
only two people on board.
All cabins have their own
tiki statue to watch over
you. Ours did its job well.


Radisson Seven Seas
Cruise Lines doesn't want
you to feel pressured,
therefore, there's no
tipping, and most of your
drinks are included in the
fare. We found that there
were so many parties that
we never had to buy a
drink.
The food was great and
the service was like noth-
ing we have had before.
The waiters and bar staff
knew your name after the
first time they met you and
they made you feel com-
pletely at home.
Even the dress code in
Tahiti is relaxed. A pair of
slacks and nice shirt was
the norm for men and a
summer dress or slacks
outfit for women. A tie and
jacket was very seldom
seen on board the Gau-
guin. During the day, all
wore bathing suits and
shorts.
On Deck 4 of the ship is
the marina. This is an area
at the back of the ship that
opens into the sea for
water skiing and kayaking
(which is included in the
price). This is also where
you get your snorkel gear
to use for the week's
journey.
On Sunday, the children
of Raiatea came aboard
and sang and danced for
us.
This island is very
beautiful and lush. The
tours give you an idea of
the history of the Polyne-
sians and the differences in
their lives today. They still
make plates from large
leaves and many do not
have enclosed homes with
air conditioning.
On Tahaa you have the
opportunity to see wonder-
ful views from the high
mountains and again the
tropical parts of the island.

this island that is private
for Paul Gauguin passen-
gers. It is a great place to
enjoy the wonderful, calm
waters and a great lunch
prepared by the ship's staff.
Once again, free drinks are
provided in sand-friendly
glasses.
Bora Bora is the place for
shopping. The people on
this island are not as
friendly as on the other
islands, but that is to be
expected, since it is more
of a tourist spot. On Bora
Bora, you can get some
fantastic pictures from the
mountain ranges and
overlooks that are provided
for you. Bloody Mary's is a
must stop for a cold drink.
Ladies, check out the
women's restroom. I doubt
you will see another like it.
On Thursday, we sailed
around Marlon Brando's
island and found the
stories very exciting. After
this, we sailed into Cook's
Bay. This is where we
anchored for our view and
tours of Moorea. This is
where you will probably
get your Tahitian black
pearls. I thought I would
not buy one, but to my
great pleasure my husband
did get ine one. And, a
grateful customer bought
me a black pearl bracelet.
So I have many special
memories to hold in my
heart of this wonderful
paradise.
Before flying you home,
Radisson puts you up in a
hotel in Papeete for the
afternoon. Your flight is
around 10 p.m. When you
leave the ship, a compli-
mentary tour and lunch are,
available for those who
wish to take it and then
some rest by the pool or in
your room is in order.,
When you are looking for
a special trip that will stay
with you forever, try
traveling to paradise.

that the amendment was
a bad idea that should be
forgotten.
County, developers
to split cost of
Kanner Highway
improvements
Commercial and resi-
dential developments
that have been frozen
along Southwest Kanner
Highway now have a
green light, thanks to
cooperative agreement
between them and Mar-
tin County which was
passed by commissioners
on Feb. 12.
The county will pay
half the estimated $6 mil-
lion cost to widen Kanner
Highway between 1-95
and Cove Road and add
turn lanes at key inter-
sections. Some 16 devel-
opers will pay $2.6 mil-
lion as part of the deal,
with the remaining
$400,000 to come from
other developers that
may come along.
County Administrator
Duncan Ballantyne said
the county's $3 million
share may be difficult to
come up with due to less
tax revenues expected,
although some of the
funds could be diverted
from stalled or cancelled
road projects.
Some of the commer-
cial projects delayed by
the roadway issue
include a new gas station
and convenience store at
the intersection of Jack
James Road and Kanner
Highway, as well as the
expansion of the Dairy
Queen at the same inter-
section.

village of old homes
turns out to be much
wetter than originally
thought.
Martin County owns
the land and had already
moved one 1913 home to
the property before offi-
cials discovered the true
extent of its wetlands. A
50-foot buffer is required
by the county around any
wetlands, which would
have left too little usable
land to house the old
structures and create a
tourist village.
Danforth Park, located
at the intersection of
County Road 714 and
Mapp Road, is now being
considered for that pur-
pose. Palm City resident
Reza Khatib has been try-
ing to win county
approval to build a
12,000-sq uare -ufoot
bridge center at the park,
but Commissioner
Michael DiTerlizzi thinks
there wouldn't be enough
room to support both the
bridge center and the
historical village at Dan-
forth Park.
County leaders envi-
sion a village with people
dressed in period cloth-
ing guiding visitors
through the homes and
around the site.

teer for more than two
decades and taken the art
of mothering to the next
level. In fact, many of
those who've come in con-
tact with her over the years
simply refer to her as
"Mother."
She tutored children five
afternoons a week for
more than 10 years at the
Ernestine "Susie" Holloway
Christian Academic Study
Center, an after-school
program she founded at
Mount Calvary Missionary
Baptist Church in 1986.
She has also served as
president of the Martin
County Literacy Council
and volunteered weekly as
an Auxiliary Pink Lady at
Martin Memorial Medical
Center for more than 22
years. Mrs. Holms still vis-
its more than a dozen eld-
erly and shut-ins weekly
and helps out one day a
week at Jesus House of
Hope.
"I'm not going to say
very much because I am a
talker and don't know
when to stop," she said
upon receiving her award.
"The things that I've done,
it's because I love people."
The third recipient,
Charles E. Jones, was
introduced to the crowd by
his son, Charles Jones, who
told a story of his father's
patience in the face of bla-
tant racism many years
ago.
He recalled an incident
in the early 1960s when his
dad was being mercilessly
berated by a white man.


"I watched him flinch,
not once, but twice in
order to control himself
and not react," he said.
Later he told me, "Some-
times you'll do anything
for your family."
That patience in the face
of adversity is probably
what contributed to
Charles E. Jones becoming
,a successful law enforce-
ment officer. Except for a
few years with the Bell
Glade Police Department,
he spent his entire career
with the Martin County
Sheriff's Office and was the
first black to hold a high-
ranking position there.
In addition to volunteer-
ing his time as a referee
and coach in local sporting
events, Mr. Jones founded
MAD DADS (Men Against
Destructions Defending
Against Drugs and Social
Disorder) in 1992. Still, he
considers his greatest
achievement to be when
he accepted Jesus Christ as
his savior that same year.
"We are not looking for
anything but Jesus," he
said. "We are in the 75th
year of our lives, and we
can't play around. We're
only looking one way, and
that's to Heaven."
The next honoree, the
Rev. Alfred Patton, has
lived in Port Salerno for
almost 50 years. A native of
the Bahamas, Rev. Patton
first visited Port Salerno
when his grandfather,
Bishop Alfred Minus, was
the pastor of Port Salerno
Church of God. It was


there that he met his wife-
to-be, Margaret Anderson
and eventually became an
ordained minister. He has
worked for Dickerson
Florida as a mechanic for
48 years, as well as volun-
teering for the Concerned
Citizens of New Monrovia
and the Martin County
Sheriff's Office.
"I came from humble
beginnings and I became a
part of this community,"
he said. "I always tell peo-
ple that you must grasp the
opportunities in your life-
time because you only
have so many."
The fifth honoree, John
Scott, was introduced by
his pastor, the Rev. Elker
Harris of Mount Carmel
Missionary Baptist
Church. Mr. Scott has been
a deacon at the church
since 1939 and was there
when Rev. Harris came to
take over the pastorate,
providing him uncondi-
tional support over the
years.
"Through John Scott,
Jesus was showing that a
life of service to others
would carry them a long
way," Rev. Harris said.
"God put John Scott here
to say, 'even though you
have God on your side,
you're going to need some-
body else along the way.'"
Mr. Scott began working
for Martin Memorial in
1939 and worked his way
up to orderly, eventually
becoming a licensed prac-
tical nurse. He retired in
2007 after 68 years of serv-
ice, but not before he was
given a big party in 2004
and had a healing garden
named after him.
"God has been good to
me," he said. "His grace
and mercy are what have
carried me through."
And lastly, Thelma
Waters, the "unofficial
mayor of Indiantown," was
honored for her years of
striving to improve the
quality of life for that com-
munity's residents.
Mrs. Waters moved with
her nine siblings and par-
ents to Indiantown in
1947, after a flood wiped
out approximately 75
homes in a migrant camp.
Since that time, .she has
dedicated her life to teach-


ing the children of the
area. She began as a day-
care worker for 25 cents a
day, and by the time she
retired, was overseeing the
East Coast Migrant Head-
start Program.
She still serves on the
boards of the .Neighbor-
hood Advisory Committee,
the Indiantown Town
Meeting Committee and
the Indiantown Chamber
of Commerce Board of
Directors. A member and
the secretary of the New
Bethel A.M.E. church, she
rallied her fellow church
members and others in
2006 to form a program to
feed the need in the com-
munity.
"My theme in life is, may
the work I've done speak
for me," she said. "If I can
help somebody as I pass
along with a word or song,
then my life will not have
been in vain."
Former news reporter
and anchor for News 12 in
West Palm Beach, AnEta
Sewell, served as master of
ceremonies for the two-
and-a-half-hour ceremo-
ny. Currently working as
the Lead Outreach Repre-
sentative for the Palm
Beach County Service Cen-
ter of the South Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict, Ms. Sewell frequently
added a touch of levity to
the event.
When Mr. Scott, now in
his 90s, got a little side-
tracked describing the big
blow-out the hospital gave
him for 65 years of service,
Rev. Harris had to gently
nudge him to wrap it up,
and Ms. Sewell said it was
a good thing.
"We would have been
here until 2 in the morning
if he hadn't," she said. "I
was not going to tell him to
stop."
The audience also
received a word of exhor-
tation from Daryl Speaks,
the head of the Martin
County Chapter of the
NAACP, who encouraged
them to follow Mr. Stan-
berry's example "and con-
tinue the fight for what he
stood and marched for," as
well as enjoying the per-
formances of the Port
Salerno Church of God
youth choir.

Choir reunites after 41 years

BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff.writer ,

STUART Forty-one
years is a long time to wait
for a reunion performance,
but members of the East
Stuart Community Choir
were anything but rusty as
they sang for the Stuart
Heritage group during
Black History Month.
Under the direction of
pianist Dr. Jay Thompson,
and accompanied by his
nephew Robert Newman
on the trumpet, the group
sang a series of slave songs
and spiritual hymns, fre-
quently bringing members
of the audience to their
feet with the energetic
rhythm. The reunited cho-
rus members were Rether
Mae McHardy, Greta
Tyson, Pauline Roberts,
Sarah Roberts, Dorothy
Jamison Jones, Doris
Carter Coleman, Carolyn
Pippens and Randolph
Christie.
Starting off with a rous-
ing version of "When the
Saints Go Marching In,"
the chorus continued on
with several touching
numbers such as "This Lit-
tle Light of Mine," "My
Lord, What a Morning,"
and "We're Climbing
Jacob's Ladder."

Salvation Army


continues to raise


money for needy


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Even though the holiday
season has come to an end,
the Salvation Army continues
to raise money for those in
need in Martin County.
'After the holiday season
some people think The Salva-
tion Army takes a break," said
Captain Ricky Perez of Stuart
Corps. "No more bell ringing.
No more Christmas kettles.
We just wait until next year to
help those in need. But noth-
ing could be further from the
truth. Just because the holi-
day season is over, it doesn't
mean we close up shop until
next Christmas," he said.
"Everyday The Salvation
Army is there to help those in
need with food, clothing and
emergency assistance."
Captain Perez reports for
the coming year, he expects to
provide grants for rent, utility
assistance, medicine and
food for more than 1600 fami-
lies in desperate need.


He would like to visit the
more than 1,700 lonely, hurt-
ing people in nursing homes
and correctional facilities and
provide more than 3,600
meals to hungry men, women
and children here in Martin
County.
He would also like to pro-
vide bread and sweets at the
social services office to the
more than 27,000 less fortu-
nate persons living in Martin
County
"With the uncertainty in
the economy, there are many
in our community who are
hurting. That's why our annu-
al Fund Drive Campaign is so
important," said Captain
Perez.
He is asking the communi-
ty to support generously.
"We want to be ready to
respond to those who need
our help in 2008 and, with the
support of our friends in Mar-
tin County, we will," he said.
To donate to The Salvation
Army, call (800) SAL ARMY or

PRE-PAID LEGAL: Have An Attorney On Call When You Need One


No matter who you are,
you may need the services
of a lawyer someday. With
Pre-Paid Legal, you'll never
go bankrupt to pay legal
fees.
Pre-Paid Legal was one
of the first companies in
the United States organ-
ized solely to design,
underwrite and market
legal expense plans.
Member ships in the com-
pany offer a variety of
plans in a manner similar
to medical reimbursement
plans or HMOs.
The 30-year-old compa-
ny, headquartered in Okla-
homa, provides legal serv-
ices to over 1.5 million
families across the U.S.
and Canada, and benefits
are delivered through a.
network of independent
law firms. Pre-Paid Legal
offers preventive, motor
vehicle, trial defense and
IRS audit legal services as
well as identity theft pro-
tection services.
Pre-Paid Legal was
founded by Oklahoma
schoolteacher and insur-
ance salesman Harland
Stonecipher, who was
involved in a serious car
accident in 1969. While his


insurance covered his
medical and car repair
costs, he had no coverage
for the resulting legal bills.
After researching the
European legal expense
plan industry, he founded
Pre-Paid Legal in 1972, and
the business has since
expanded .throughout the
United States and into
Canada. The company is
traded on the New York
Stock Exchange and was
recognized as a top-per-
forming company by the
Wall Street Journal.
Wellington resident
Nancy Pena-Brink began
using Pre-Paid Legal as a
client and liked the prod-
uct so much, she went to
work for them as an inde-
pendent associate and
group benefits specialist.
Pena-Brink said that
even though the United
States is a litigious society,
most Americans have no
legal coverage. But for a
small monthly fee, Pre-
Paid Legal will cover you
against anything from a
traffic ticket to a major
lawsuit.
"Right now, about ten
percent of people get legal
coverage through the pub-


lic defender's; office
because of their iuation,"
Pena-Brink saic "About
ten percent hav enough
money that the!can pay
for attorneys if Pey ever
get into a situation that
they need an at rney for.
But about 80 percent of
individuals out iere don't
have any coverage at all. If
a legal situationwomes up
because of a lawsuit, they
have nowhere t go... You
are two and a ialf times
more likely t( end up
needing an attiney than
you are to be irthe hospi-
tal."
Pena-Brink lrned this
from personal pperience,
when a paperwork snafu
related to hedtaughter's
hospital stay psulted in
the hospital thiatening to
resort to collection
agency, whiclfould have
ruined her c ,dit. Pena-
Brink relied h Pre-Paid
Legal.
"The attor y wrote a
letter to the hospitall and
found out tht according
to the insurane company,
the hospital cU not get the
proper auth6izations for
this, and tol them the
client does ut owe any


money," she recalled. "We
saved $2,500 from that. We
would have paid it if we
didn't have the service
because normally you
wouldn't fight it."
Pena-Brink said Pre-Paid
Legal offers round-the-
clock coverage. A call to
their toll-free number will
put a client in touch with a
lawyer no matter what
time it is.
Another advantage to
Pre-Paid Legal member-
ship in these modern
times is identity theft cov-
erage and credit monitor-
ing. A lawyer can come in
handy if a driver's license
check during a traffic stop
returns with inaccurate
information, Pena-Brink
noted. Identity thieves use
victims' information for a
wide range of purposes,
such as collecting insur-
ance benefits.
"Not only do we do your
credit report and continu-
ous monitoring, but we do
identity restoration," Pena-
Brink said. "We will write
letters on your behalf. We
will go out and research
and find out what's going
on. That's work you would
normally have to do on


your own. We will go one
step beyond that, and we
will make sure that your
identity is restored back to
its good name."
Pre-Paid Legal services
also cover the important
area of wills and living tes-
taments, documents no
American should be with-
out but most don't have,
Pena-Brink said. Pre-Paid
SLegal also allows small
businesses with small
budgets the ability to
retain an attorney.
"Small businesses, like
families, don't always have
extra cash to be able to call
on an attorneys when they
need to," she said. "Small
businesses end up with
accounts receivable, and
no matter how many times
they ask people for money,
they can be blown off.
They're small. With our
small business plan, peo-
ple cad have letters written
on their behalf for collec-
tion. They can have con-
tracts reviewed so they can
have. legal representation
for suits."
No matter what the,
question, Pena-Brink said,
Pre-Paid Legal members
can contact an attorney. "If


Nancy E. PenA-Brink
you are thinking of buying s
property, call him," she
said. "If you end up in a sit-
uation where you need to
do a contract, you can
send him the contract, and
they will review it for you
before you sign it. This is
really good because you
never know when a situa-
tion is going to come up
when an attorney speaks
louder than your letter
coming in."

pany's web site at

Nicotine replacements enable smokers to quit


Last week, I wrote about
making the decision to
stop smoking. This
week, I'll address getting
medication and using it
correctly and preparing for
relapses and difficult
situations.

Medications
that can help
There are several medica-
tion approved by the Food
and Drug Administration to
help smokers quit. Most
help to mange withdrawal
symptoms and urges with
small amount of nicotine;
one of them, bupropion, is
sometimes used to fight
depression and may help
reduce nicotine cravings.
According to the National
Institutes of Health, using
an aid to help quit could as
much as double your
chances of being successful.

It's a big step to stop
smoking, but that's only the
beginning. The harder
battle is staying smoke-free
for the long haul.
Here are some strategies
and plans, again taken from
QuitAssist, to help you
through some rough
patches.
* According to the Centers
for Diseases Control and
Prevention, your risk of
relapse is greatest during
the first three months after
quitting. Have a plan in
place to cope with being
around other smokers or in
other difficult situations.
You know what your triggers
are; plan for how you'll
handle them ahead of time.
* If you smoke to handle
stress, you need a replace-
ment coping skill. Exercise
is a great stress reliever and


mood elevator. You might
try yoga or tai chi or go for a
walk or run.
Don't beat yourself up if
you slip. Don't give up. Try
to figure out what hap-
pened to make that urge
uncontrollable. Are there
things you can do to cope
better next time? Ask for
help from friends and
experts.
Coffee and alcohol are
often smoke triggers; limit
their use.
Eat nutritious food and
try to exercise most days.
This will also help maintain
your weight.
Remind yourself of the
benefits of not smoking.
Think of good health. Think
of how unpleasant the
house used to smell. Think
of the money you're saving.
Many states have Quit-
Lines that provide tele-
phone-based help in-
smoking cessation. In
Florida, the number is (877)
822-6669. Help is available
in English and Spanish.
Other language translations
are available.
You can do it! Lots of
people can help.

Azaleas a sure sign of spring time


ith the Florida
W spring season in
the air, I would to
write about a very seasonal
plant known as the azalea.
These colorful plants are
always a sure sign of spring
when they burst into full
color. Even though our
spring is still a few weeks
away, now is the time to
start planning where you
want to show off these
heavy bloomers.
You should consider a
location where the plants
will only receive filtered
light. They do not like full
direct sun all day. An area
under the eaves of your
house or that receives
filtered sun through pine
trees would be an excellent
location.
If you want your plants to
live a long and healthy life,
proper soil is the key.
Azaleas like a soil that is
acidic with a ph of around
5.5. Generally, soil that is
exposed to pine needles
will be naturally acidic in


JOE ZELENAK
Garden Nook


nature and when mixed
with a good organic soil,
you have an excellent
medium to give your plants
a good start.
You should also be sure
your plants are in a well-
drained area so they won't
sit in water for long peri-
ods. Preparing a raised bed
is the best assurance for
good drainage.
Once the soil is properly
prepared, you want to


apply a slow-release
fertilizer directly to the soil.
Osmocote for acid loving
plants is an excellent
choice.
Once you have your
azaleas planted and
established, the rest is easy.
The beauty of these plants
is that they require very
little maintenance. They
are not heavy feeders and
thus do not need to be
fertilized on a regular basis.
The best time for feeding is
after they have finished
their bloom cycle in the
spring. Always use a slow-
release fertilizer and do not
let the fertilizer come in
direct contact with the
roots.
OK, you've got your plants
established, fertilized and
your soil is perfect so
what's next? The next step
is to ensure that your plants
bloom year after year.
One of the best ways to do
this is by proper pruning.
You always want to prune
and shape your plants right


after they have finished
blooming. Don't wait until
the height of summer to do
this or you risk losing
flowers next season.
Even though azaleas have
a fairly short bloom cycle,
the plants stay healthy and
green all year long. Because
of this they are considered
evergreens. This is what
makes them such a desir-
able choice for a year-
round plant.
To summarize, azaleas are
heavy bloomers, they are
easy to take of and they do
very well in both winter
cold and hot summers,
provided they are in filtered
sunlight.

Panel Discussion
In contemporary settings, window
treatments are often regarded as part
of the interior architecture. Instead
of drawing attention to themselves
with frills, pleats, and folds, they
recede into the background and
become part of the walls. One of the
best ways to accomplish this mini-
ralist look involves die use of drap-
ery panels When installed on an
invisible track in a ceiling or soffit,
they can create a very tailored look.
On a functional level, overlapping
panels can. easily be moved into
place to effectively control light and
create privacy. With panels,, the sec-
tion of window that is to be covered
can be precisely adjusted. Panels
also require about 50 percent less
fabric than regular drapes.
Speak to an interior decorator at our
facility about this or other window
treatment ideas by calling 772-781-
3705. We understand the impact
your environment has on your
moods, your work, and even your
well-being. Whether you prefer a
minimalist contemporary setting, or
a lavish traditional interior, we will
work with you to make your living
space as unique as you are. We also
specialize in creating "green" interi-
ors, helping you choose products
that are natural and earth-friendly,
for a healthy lifestyle and a better
world.

Platinum
The platinum group met-
als comprise six- closely
related metals: Platinum,
Palladium, Rhodium,
Ruthenium, Iridium and
Osmium.
Platinum (symbol PI) was
accepted as a precious
metal only after the second
half of the 19th century and
has a deep luster and a
rich, white color. It Is rarer
and heavier than all pre-
cious metals and consid-
ered to be more valuable
than gold.
Platinum Is often used to
set the most valuable gems
to produce the finest Jewel-
ry.
Platinum holds gem-
stones most securely
because Its strength and
neutral color enhances the
brilliance and depth of dia-
monds and precious
stones. Because of its den-
sity and weight, you can
feel the difference
between platinum and
other precious metals.
There are no karat marks to
Identify platinum,
In the United States, plat-
Inum Is usually marked: PT or
PLAT. In Europe, platinum Is
Identified by the following
marks: 950 or PT950, Since
platinum Is the purest
metal, It rarely causes an
allergic reaction. There Is an
Increased Interest In plat-
Inum Jewelry both In the US
and abroad.

"They were more than
simply hymns," she
said. "The songs
allowed -the slaves to
communicate about the
underground railroad."
The chorus rounded
out the evening with its
own version of "The
Battle Hymn of The
Republic" and "Oh
Happy Day," the former
bringing tears to the
eyes of the audience, Dr
Thompson said.
The chorus was the
vision of Ida Mae Carter,
who enlisted the then
youthful Mr. Thompson
to help her form the
group in the 1960s.
Their first performance
was at Mount Carmel
Missionary Baptist
Church, and soon the
group grew to almost 50
members and was tour-
ing throughout Florida,
the Bahamas and the
British West Indies.
The young singers,
ranging from 14 to 16
years of age, even held
concerts as far away as
Atlanta and Washington
D.C. The chorus gradu-
ally disbanded as the
members grew up, Dr.
Thompson said.

Big rebates and dis-
counts also negatively
affect a cars resale value.
It's what you could call a
"vicious cycle." A car is
hard to sell because of
high repair costs and high
depreciation, so the
manufacturer pays a big
cash rebate to sell it. The
rebate lowers the value of
the used car of that make
and model because the
price of a used car is
directly tied to the cost of
that same new car.
You will be surprised
how much the color of the
car you buy can affect the
resale value. Think about
it. The color was very
important to you when
you bought your last car. It
is just as important to the
person who will buy the
car you trade in.
The most popular colors
are: white, silver, beige
and black. If you have a
"thing" for green, blue,
orange or another unusual
color, it can negatively
affect the resale value of
that car by more than
$2,000. I'm not suggesting
that you always buy a
white car, but if you like
white, silver, beige and
black you are going to get
more money for that
trade-in than if you like
blue and green. Bright
colors can be good for
certain models. Red is a
popular convertible color,
for example.
Be sure to check the cost
of insurance before you
make a final decision. Cars
with side airbags, highly
rated in collision and
rollover tests, relatively
low cost of repair especial-
ly for bumpers, and non-
high-performance cars
have much lower insur-
ance rates.
Cars are no different
than any product you buy
when it comes to the
principal of "the cheapest
product is usually not the
best value." You buy a
quality pair of shoes,
paying more than you
would for a cheap, poorly
made pair because they
will look good and wear
many times longer.
Shopping for the lowest
price is a very good idea,
but only after you have
chosen a car that has low
depreciation, operating
and repair costs.


f.t- 2.. o


You might save a $1,000 by
choosing to buy one used or
new car over another more
expensive make and model.
But if the make and
model that cost $1,000
more, holds its value by
$2,000 more over the three
years you own the car
before trading it back in,
the "lowest priced car"
was really $1,000 more
expensive.
There are several ways
you can check on how
much cars will depreciate.
A good one is to check
the re-sale value of that
same make of car that is
three or four years old. You
can do that with a whole-
sale buying guide such as
"Kelly Blue Book," "NADA
Appraisal Guide" or "Black
Book." You can also find
this information on the
Internet. "Kelly Blue
Book," for example is
www.KBB.com.
If you are thinking about
buying a 2008 car of a
particular model and
make, find out what a 2005
model sells for today.
Compare other makes and
models.
Maintenance and repair
cost are the second biggest
factors in measuring the
true cost of a car.
When a car has a rela-
tively higher depreciation,
one of the biggest reasons
is probably because it is
more prone to break
down. Check "Consumer
Reports" or surf the Web to
find the projected repair
histories of the cars you
are comparing.
Saving $1,000 on a
particular make and
model is not very signifi-
cant when facing the cost
of a blown transmission or
engine.
Big cash rebates and
discounts are not neces-
sarily a good thing.
First, you have to ask
yourself, why is it neces-
sary for this manufacturer
to give me such a big cash
rebate (I have seen them
advertised as high as
$11,000) to sell his car?
You will generally find that
the manufacturers of
higher quality, higher
demand cars offer fewer
rebates and discounts.
These are also the manu-
facturers of cars that
depreciate less and cost
less in terms of repairs.

For Ms. McColister, and
for the rest of the Youth of
the Year nominees, the Boys
& Girls Club is "a second
home."
During the judging, it was
clear that the four other
nominees were also impres-
sive in their dedication to
service and academics, as
well as their ability to over-
come difficult obstacles in
their lives.
The other nominees were
Ericka Williams of
Indiantown, Jonathan
Owens of East Stuart, Rean-
na Frazier of Port Salerno
and Isaac Torres of Hobe
Sound. Each nominee had
received free instruction
from volunteers with Toast-
Masters of Stuart since
December to improve their
public speaking skills and
poise.
In addition, each Youth of
the Year nominee will
receive a $50 savings bond,
and Ms. McColister receives
$500 toward college
expenses from the Boys &
Girls Clubs of Martin Coun-
ty.
All five teenagers will also
travel in March to Tallahas-
see, where Ms. McColister
will compete against other


Youth of the Year from Boys
& Girls Clubs throughout
the Southeast for additional
scholarships and prestige.
For more information or

the program, call the Boys &
Girls Clubs administrative
offices at (772) 545-1255.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Treasure Coast Scene

Teen pianist,
composer will visit
Lyric Theatre Feb. 29
Pianist and composer
Conrad Tao is just 13, but he
speaks of "Seven," the
sonata he wrote at 10, as
"nostalgia."
He will perform his own
work, as well as pieces by
Corigliano, Rachmaninoff,
Chopin and Liszt, in a
concert on Friday, Feb. 29,
at the Lyric Theatre,
sponsored by the Treasure
Coast Concert Association.
He spoke by phone from
his home in NewYork,
where he is home-schooled
and also studies at the
Juilliard School.
"My earliest memories of
music are of me playing,"
he said. "They say I crawled
up onto the bench at one-
and-a-half (years old) and
plucked out tunes. Whenev-
er I saw a piano, I'd climb
up, even though my hands
were very small."
Conrad began formal
piano lessons at 3.5 years
old and began studying
composition at age 5.
"The first thing I ever
played was "Mary had a
Little Lamb," he said. "We
had children's tapes and I
plunked it out. That's the
reason I kept enjoying it. I
started by ear, not by
learning how to read
music."
The young man starts his
day by practicing for several
hours and then he does
several hours of schoolwork
and violin practice, since he
also plays that instrument.
In the evening, he practices
the piano again. He does
find time to mix with
friends, both musical and
non-musical and said that
he doesn't practice as much
as others he knows because
he lacks concentration.
(That's hard to believe, with
the schedule he has.)
He is pleased with the
program for the Lyric
concert, saying he tries to
make a program a mix of
fast and slow works. The
Corigliano begins with only
the left hand playing, and
he finds that trying to make
it sound as if both hands
were involved is the
challenge and the fun.

Luncheon to feature


noted English author


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Writer Barbara Taylor
Bradford has authored
best-selling books that
have sold more than 80
million copies in 40
languages and have been
made into 15 television
mini series.
Her own life story reads
like one of her novels.
"My mother, Freda
Taylor, loved furniture
and paintings and
antiques, and she took
me around to stately
homes and pointed out a
Constable or a Gainsbor-
ough or Hepplewhite,"
said the author. "She
opened my eyes. She
encouraged my reading
and a love for beautiful
things."
The young Barbara
thought this was normal
for a child growing up in
the northern English city
* of Leeds, and it wasn't
until she was a famous
author that her biogra-
pher, Piers Dudgeon,
discovered that Freda
Taylor was the illegiti-
mate daughter of the
Marquess of Ripon, a
member of the English
aristocracy. It was a twist
worthy of one of Barbara
Taylor Bradford's own
books
"It was extraordinary,"
she said of learning her
mother's hidden heritage.


"I'm convinced she
knew about it. I think she
felt that I deserved what
she had been denied. I
was an only child, as my
brother had died as a
baby, and she focused all
of her attention on me."
Mrs. Bradford began
her career as a typist for
the Yorkshire Evening
Post at 15 and worked her
way up to reporter.
By 18, she was the
women's page editor, and
she moved to London.
Her days in journalism
helped prepare her for
her future career.
"I wanted to be a hard-
bitten reporter with a
dirty trench coat," said
Mrs. Bradford. "I was
never hard-bitten, but I
did have a dirty trench
coat. I was always very
lucky and got good jobs
and earned the respect
quickly of men. There
were not a lot of women
(in newspapers) 50 years
ago. I learned that you
have to meet a deadline,
and I've never missed
one. It taught me to pay
attention to facts and
gave me a great deal of
respect for research. I
only trust myself to get
the facts right.
"It taught me about
people. You can't be a
novelist without having
insight into what makes
people tick. You learn
through meeting a lot of

Your success depends on the choices you make.
In order for new ideas to grow, outdated ones
must be released. Your main efforts in the next
two or three weeks should be directed in sorting
out the old from the new and figuring out what
you truly want. Then ask for a blessing from the
universe on the most important. A super year is
sure to follow if you do this.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
State your case and cause and let others know
what you want and when. Then give them time to
perform and help you as requested. Whether it is
with family, co-workers or friends, working togeth-
er as a team is so important. When you feel stress
and unsafe, it is usually caused by trying to go it
alone and overloading yourself. When you ask for
help, you will get much more done.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
At the last minute, when it seems that things are
not going to work out, they usually do. Why?
Because you have a guardian angel watching over
you. Your own spirit knows what you want. For
this spiritual side to work, you must listen to your
inner guidance, act on the positive signs and then
be patient. Let the universe work for you and you
will prosper.,
Cancer-June 22-July 22
Keep visualizing what you want and refuse to give
up or get stuck or sidetracked on less important
things. The key is to write down your ideas when


they pop into the mind. This is like giving birth to
an "idea child." Then feed, protect it and encour-
age it to grow. One good idea acted upon could
set you up for life. You have many. Why not create
a few this year?
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
The key now that you are finding short-range suc-
cess, is to set medium-range goals to work
toward. Then, set yearly and long-range goals. All
successful people do this. You are a proven win-
ner. You should do it, too. This plan will keep you
moving forward with strong, focused energy. You
know what you want. Now go for it with gusto
and win.
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept 22
The moon in Virgo gives your natural, strong heart
energy an even greater boost. Use it to do some-
thing nice for yourself. You are always doing for
others. Let your friends help you a little. It's what
they are for. Watch your ups and downs. Increase

Celebrate Black History Month with great food, cookies


Hello, smart shoppers!
Hope you had a good
week. February is
Black History Month and
before the month is gone, I
must share some delicious
recipes. Two recipes come
with a story and one actually
comes from Africa. All are
delicious!
Enjoy. See you next week.
To your health: Black-eyed
peas or beans can cause gas in
some. Add a half-teaspoon of
baking soda near the end of
cooking. Goodbye gas!

BESSIE'S HOPPIN'
JOHN
Serves four or more,
regular and low fat
Bessie Stuart, a black friend
of mine, who has since gone
to be with the Lord, gave me
her family recipe. Served over
rice with a side of corn bread,
it is rib sticking and wonder-
ful. Using ham instead of
pork or bacon makes it low
fat.
1 large package black-eyed
peas
1/4 pound salt pork or
bacon, cut up or 1 ham
hock or chunks of ham
1/2 teaspoon each, salt and
pepper
1 large clove garlic and 1
large onion, chopped
Hot sauce (optional)
Cover peas with cold water;
discard any that float. Drain.
Place in pot cover with
watergBrig to a boil, reduce
heat and ook for two
mini.tes.~over and let stand
for one hour.
Note: You can let peas soak
in the pot overnight. This
method removes most of the
gas-producing properties.
Drain peas and return to
pot. Add the ham or salt

pork, salt and pepper and
about 1-1/2 cups water.
Cover and cook for one hour.
Add garlic, onion and a few
dashes of hot sauce and cook
until peas are tender. The
gravy will be thick. Add more
water if necessary. Serve over
rice and with corn bread.

FROGMORE STEW
(NIB)
Serves eight
We enjoyed Frogmore Stew
at my son, Bill's home in
South Carolina and shortly
after that I found a recipe in a
magazine.
Since the recipe was not as
good as Bill's, I decided to call
him knowing I would also get
a bit of history.
How about that name? I
mentioned it to my mom
and told her the ingredients
and she asked quizzically,
"There are no frogs in it?"
It seems, Frogmore is a
town located in the low
country, just outside of
Beaufort, S.C.Apparently it
was there the stew was
created by slaves. Years ago it
was considered "peasant
food." Crabs were added
when available.
This is great for a crowd.


You can cut the recipe in half
if you choose, using 2-
tablespoons seafood boil, 1/2
teaspoon each Tabasco and
Worcestershire sauce and 4-
1/2 teaspoons salt. The rest is
easy to divide.
6 quarts of water
1/4 cup seafood boil
(found in supermarket in
spice section)
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
sauce
3 tablespoon salt*
2 cloves garlic, peeled
4 extra-large onions,
peeled and halved
8 to 10 medium size red
potatoes, whole and
unpeeled
2 pounds smoked sausage,
cut into 2-inch pieces
12 ears shucked corn on
the cob, broken into 4-inch
pieces
4 pounds large shrimp,
unpeeled
Add half the salt and
taste-test at the end.
In a large stockpot, com-
bine the water with the next
5 ingredients, bring to a boil.
Add potatoes and onions,
cook for 15 minutes. Add the
sausage and cook for 5
minutes. Add the corn and
cook for 5 minutes longer.
Add the shrimp and cook
until pink, about 3 minutes.
Drain immediately and


serve.
I served this dish the
authentic way; try it. Cover
the table with newspaper,
place the bowl of stew in the
center, pass around the
plates and silverware and go
at it!

Ask yourself, "will this make

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec.21
Use recent successes as a
springboard to rise to the next
level. Continue to think high,
inspired thoughts. Fear is not

your top priorities and dele-

needed. When you ask for

happy and flourishing.

it in you as well. This is the
true meaning of life and one
of your most priceless pos-

Mrs. Bradford met her
husband Bob, an American
film producer, through a
mutual friend, and they
were married in 1963. Mr.
Bradford has shepherded
the productions of her
books into mini-series and


movies including "A
Woman of Substance,"
"Voices of the Heart," "Act
of Will" and "A Secret
Affair."
Mr. Bradford manages
his wife's career, including

Margaret Thatcher. He's
very organized. I call him
Bismarck. We're each
organized in our different
ways and opinionated, but
we get along very well."
In June 2007, Mrs.
Bradford was given an
Order of the British Empire
for her contributions to
literature, and she was
invited to Buckingham
Palace to see the queen.
"She's very sweet and
pretty," said Mrs. Bradford.
"She's got that pink skin
and the bluest eyes. "
The experience was an
interesting one.
"They take away your
handbag, not because of a
gun, but because you
might drop it when you get
the medal and (have)
everything fall out. They
put a hook or safety pin on
your jacket, and the queen
hangs the medal from it.
Imagine if she had to pin it
on you! She stands on a
dais, so if she has to pin a
medal on a 6-foot-9-inch
guardsman, she's taller
than everyone."


"The queen said that she
understood that I had
written a lot of books, and
we both smiled," said Mrs.
Bradford. "The queen's
eyes twinkled when I
mentioned that I'd used
British history -the
queen's history in some
of my works. I told Her
Majesty that it was a great
honor that I would treas-
ure always. The queen
shook my hand, I curt-
seyed as I receded, and it
was over."
Mrs. Bradford is active in
charity work and her special
causes include the Police
Athletic League in NewYork,
where she lives.
The organization'Jis
raising money to open after-
school centers for under-.
privileged children that are
equipped with computers
to help build skills. She also
serves on the board of an
English charity, Parents and
Abducted Children Togeth-
er, which tries to find
missing children.
"Both are close to my
heart," she said. "Anything
is that has is anything to do
with children."
At the end of the inter-
view, Mrs. Bradford asked
me if I'd like an inscribed
copy of her latest book, 'The
Heir,' published in 2007,
and told me to come up to
her at the luncheon.
"Tell them Barbara has
something for you," she said
in a crisp English accent. '
"I'm putting it in my diary."
It'll be a bit like meeting
the Queen.
Barbara Taylor Bradford
appears at the fifth annual
author's luncheon, spon-
sored by the Friends of the
Blake Library, on March 11
'at Harbour Ridge Yacht and
Country Club in Palm City.
Tickets for the 11:30 a.m.

"I try to think of how
difficult it is," he said. "That
makes it more impressive."
Conrad was born in
Urbana, Ill., to Chinese
immigrants who came to
the United States to study at
Princeton University. His
mother is a research
scientist at Columbia, and
his father is an engineer. His
older sister attends Colum-
bia, and she is focusing on
economics.
He's looking forward to
the trip to Florida, where he
has come to perform before,
and he has family outside of
Tampa. He only worries
about the weather up north.
"Every time I travel on a
flight to Florida, one leg or
the other is delayed," he
said.
Let's hope it doesn't
happen this time.

array a thumb drive with you-- --


Carry a-thumb drive with you


Ihad the opportunity this
week to put a Med Flash
USB thumb drive through
its paces, and from what I've
been able to determine, it's a
device that could possibly
save your life in an emer-
gency
"So what is it? How could a
USB thumb drive save
anyone's life?" I'm sure many
of you may be asking yourself
these questions.
We know that thumb drives
are essentially tiny devices
that plug into an open USB
port on your computer and
then show up in your
operating system as an
additional disk drive.
What makes the Med Flash
USB device different is that its
specific purpose isn't for
backing up data, but to make
available your entire medical
history in case of emergency
or for convenience.
Here's how it works.
When you first take it out of
its package and plug it into
your PC, you run a quick
program that installs a data
entry program onto your PC
(without any spyware or
adware). Then, after register-
ing, theMed Flash program
opens and you fill out all of
your medical information
starting with your personal
information such as your
name, address contact
information, etc.
Along the top of the Med
Flash program there are a
series of tabs: personal
information, medical
contacts, medications, special
conditions, medical history
and a file manager.
Click through each tab and
fill out all the information
asked for on each page. It's
very similar to the kind of
form they make you fill out
when you go to the doctor's
office, but you can change
anything at any time.
One thing that I do want to
point out: Protect yourself
from identity theft by not
entering critical information
into this device. Things such
as Social Security numbers,
account numbers, etc.,
should be avoided to protect
yourself. However, things
such as medical conditions,
medications and doctors'
contact information can be
entered without exposing
yourself to identity theft
should you lose the device.
Once you have entered the
information, the program
asks you to click the "save


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

information" button and
remove the device from the
computer.
Now all of your medical
information is in one conven-
ient place that you can carry
with you. The drive comes
with a little ring that lets you
add the device to your key
chain or wear it around your
neck.
The next question I'm sure
some of you may be asking is,
"Why would someone want
to go through all that effort to
put all that information on a
key chain?"
The quickest way I can
answer that is to have you
think of those Medical Alert
bracelets that people with
certain medical conditions
wear. Just think of these USB
drives as a Medical Alert
bracelet on steroids.
The concept is pretty neat.
Police officers all have


laptops in their cruisers, and
many ambulances have them
as well. Frankly, computers
are everywhere nowadays,
and if you are in an accident
and/or somehow incapacitat-
ed, then the police or emer-
gency worker can plug the
Med Flash device into the
computer and have immedi-
ate access to all of your
medical information.
After the USB device is
loaded with data, it can be
plugged in to any computer,
which will automatically
access the information
without installation.
You can also print out the
information and take it with
you when you go to the
doctor's office and have them
add it to your medical record
and possibly get away with
not having to fill out all that
paperwork they give you
when you check in.
Med Flash is especially good
for people with drug allergies
or other medical conditions
that an emergency responder
might need to know.
Frankly, anyone with a
medical history should have
one of these devices just in
case. For information, go to
www.med-flash.com. They
cost $34.99.

Living a complete life starts with having a visioli


There is an ancient
saying, "without a
vision, the people
perish."
Look at each day as a page
in the continuing chapter
and book of life. Wake up
each day feeling like today is
the best day of your life. It is
a new beginning, no matter
what has happened yester-
day and before.
We can't change the past,
but we can learn from it,
bless it for what it taught us,
forgive it as necessary and
move on. Remember,
behind the clouds the sun
still shines. The winter is a
good time to make a fresh
start by wiping the slate
clean and making new plans
for the coming year. The
Earth follows this plan
through the circle of the
seasons.
Mother Earth says, "No


matter what happened in
the past year, whether there
was an abundant harvest or
the drought, flood, bugs or
human error killed the crop,
we always get a second
chance."
If the past year didn't work
out as planned, create a new
plan. Get a new vision.
What is your need? Find
out and sow new seeds and
reap a new crop. Rise up
from the ashes of past
sadness, rebuild greater
than before and march on
to victory. The doorway to
vision is an open heart. The
greatest blessing is life itself.
We have been given the
gift of human life on Earth.
What greater blessing can
there be? Lift up your heart
and be grateful for all you
have been given, no matter
how much or how little of
anything you have. Live as a
victor rather than a victim.


JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide

Life, in all its forms, is the
most sacred of values. Stop
the war within yourself and
you cannot be at war with
anyone else. The starting
point in creating a new page
and chapter of life is to
release the past. Let the past
be the past. Refuse to let it
poison your future by
holding on and judging it.
Let go of loss of posses-
sions, love, money and
disappointments. If a
relationship has gone sour,
it wasn't meant to be. There
is a better one ahead. A
business failed? There is a
better one ahead. Henry
Ford went bankrupt five
times before he got it right.
If your family doesn't
understand you, there are


worse things.
Learn to live fully in the
present. This is the way the
Earth lives, one day at a
time. Slow down a little. Go
through a season of mourn-
ing for your losses. Get over
them and create a bright
new day. Focus on happy
memories. Stop dwelling on
the past. When you feel
down, the best way to rise
up is to go out and do
something for someone
who has a greater need than
your own. When we make
someone else happy, it rubs
off on us.
The universe has a divine
plan for each of us. It is our
calling and birthright. Have
you found yours? If you
haven't, maybe you could
ask the spirit to illuminate
you and give you the true
answers you seek. The
answers to all the challenges
have been inside us since
birth yearning to be set free.
In order to find them, we
must get our own will out of
the way, surrender to the
universe and ask it to bless
us with the wisdom we seek.
Make a personal friend of
spirit. It is our best friend.
Many times we are too
proud to ask. Another
ancient saying is, "ask and
we shall receive." Stop


looking backward. Look
forward to the best today
and tomorrow of your life.
Shake off the past. Live life
by making wise choices
rather than hasty ones or
none at all. Without a vision,
it is easy to get lost, stuck or
sidetracked.
Lack of education, experi-
ence, money or privilege
doesn't have a lot to do with
real success unless you let it
hold you down to medioc-
rity. Follow your spirit, not
your head. Trust your
instincts. Make the best of
your time and potential.
Another old saying is "make
something of a little and you
will be given a lot." Become
all you came here to
become in this lifetime.
Write a new page everyday.
You can do it. It should be
your No. 1 priority to find
your true calling, move it
forward and expand your
circle of life. You have it in
you. You were born to do
great things. Hang out with
positive-minded people
who encourage you, rather
than tear you down. Claim
what is rightfully yours.
Sleep peacefully at night,
with a clear conscience
knowing that you are doing
right for yourself, family and
all others you meet in your


daily travels.
My greatest wish is that you
find all these things and more
for all your earthly days.
When you have found your
purpose and vision, teach
others how you do all these
magnificent things with your
life. Give back to those who
inspired and encouraged you
on your journey as well'This
ensures that your legacy will
live on and that yours is a
good life well lived.
The sweetest news is the
best is yet to come. Just ,
remember to let your spirit.
guide you on your journey.

Flaunting celebrity rides


Photo courtesy of Streamline Designs
Austin Weiss of Palm City poses with hip-hop artist Lil Jon at the 2008 Grammys in Los
Angeles with the custom motorcycle he designed for the star. Mr. Weiss has made a
name for himself with celebrities creating 'tricked out bikes.'

Area man hits high note in custom motorcycle world


By DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
PALM CITY Martin
County resident Austin
Weiss was a hit at the
Grammys earlier this
month but not for the rea-
son you might think.
The young motorcycle
designer was standing on
the red carpet in Los Ange-
les as hip-hop singer
Will.i.am made his grand
entrance on one of his cus-
tom-built creations.
That "pimped out" ride
for the member of the
Black Eyed Peas was Mr.
Weiss' first effort at build-
ing a custom three-
wheeled motorcycle, which
sat beside two of his other
custom bikes amidst the
hoard of celebrity musi-
cians in front of the Staples
Center Feb. 10.
The magnitude of how
far the 24-year-old has
come in such a short time
amazed both himself and
the Grammy spectators
looking over the custom
rides.
"It was just unreal," Mr.
Weiss said. "It was just
beyond what I could ever
imagine ... like wow, I'm
really here. Most people
couldn't believe that I built
the bike at my young age,
and, they kept asking me
how old I was."
Rapidly becoming a
household name in the
custom motorcycle world,
Mr. Weiss was introduced
to the world of tricked out
vehicles through a friend
who worked on low-riders.
He liked it so much that he
decided to go to welding
school. Told it would take
him two years to graduate,
the focused young man
decided to ramp up the
pace a little bit.
"I was out in four
months," he said. "Nobody
had ever done that before.
When I graduated welding
school, I had 38 welding
certificates with the Ameri-
can Welding Society."
-He was still a teenager
when introduced to Eddie
Trotta, the owner of the
award-winning custom
motorcycle design shop,
Thunder Cycles of Fort
Lauderdale. He started off
building exhaust systems
and handlebars but soon
wanted to learn the art of
sheet-metal work using a
power hammer and an
English wheel.
Mr. Weiss soon decided
to strike out on his own,
opening Streamline
Designs in 2005 at age 22.
He took his first creation, a
bike called "Getting Loose,"
to the American Iron show
that same year in Daytona
Beach. His custom motor-
cycle won the Top of the
World award and made the
cover of "American Iron"
magazine, which led to his
next gig.
"After that, I got
approached by Easyriders
magazine, and they asked
me to be on the 2007
Easyrider Centerfold tour,"
he said.
Mr. Weiss created a new
bike, "Killing Time," for the


event, which featured the
customized motorcycles of
six master builders dis-
played in 27 cities across
the country.
One of. his first paying
customers was Anheuser
Busch, which wanted a cus-
tom bike to help promote its
new Aluma beer bottle. The
next one was rapper Lil Jon,
who he got quite by acci-
dent as he was riding "Get-
ting Loose" down Ocean
Drive in Miami Beach.
"I got approached by Lil
Jon and his security guard,
who saw the bike and loved
it," he said. "He 'drove up to
my shop the next day, asked
me how much and wrote me
a check."
During this same time,
Mr. Weiss was also begin-
ning to strengthen his ties to
Martin County. During one
of the Daytona Beach com-
petitions, he made friends
with Palm City resident Josh
Smith, who also had a
motorcycle on display. After
the 2004 hurricanes left him
without power in Fort Laud-
erdale, he came up to stay at
a friend's house in Palm City
and met Mr. Smith's sister
Kate, a 2003 graduate of
South Fork High School and
avid equestrian. The two
were married in March
2007, the month after Mr.
Weiss moved his business to
the Jack James Industrial
Park in Martin County.
"I didn't want to bring her
into the. Fort Lauderdale
lifestyle, with all of its fake-
ness and excess," he said.
"And it's kind of hard in
Broward to find a place to
keep horses."
Back in L.A., Lil Jon was
using his new custom
motorcycle in a photo
shoot, where Will.i.am also
happened to be on the
scene. And the rest, as they
say, is tricked out bike histo-
ry.
Mr. Weiss says most cus-
tom bikes can take more
than a year to craft, but
Will.i.am needed his for the
following month.
'"After working from 7 a.m.
to 2:30 a.m., 33 days
straight, it was done," he
said. "We got all the metal
work and fabrication work
done, and then I had a hard
time finding a painter who
could get it done in that
time frame. I called Danger-
ous Curves in Stuart, and
they were able to do it."
Mr. Austin and his wife
flew to California for the
event, where they were the
guests of honor at the Black
Eyed Peas' pre-Grammy
concert at the Avalon Club
in Hollywood. The designer
also had to give some quick
motorcycle lessons to the
star.
"We got out to L.A., and
Will.i.am had never ridden a
motorcycle in his life, not
even a moped," he said. "So
I had to teach him how to
ride."
The Grammy experience
has given him and Stream-
line Designs some great
exposure, with several other
celebrities expressing inter-
est in his bikes, including
former 'N Sync singer Joey

Fatone, Randy Jackson of
American Idol and other
members of the Black Eyed
Peas.
He's now currently build-
ing a motorcycle for come-
dian Carlos Mencia. The
comedian is scheduled to
film a performance on Feb.
28 at the Hard Rock Caf6 in
Hollywood, with two of Mr.
Weiss' own bikes to appear
in the video.
Some of Mr. Weiss' cus-
tomized motorcycles will
also appear in a special
exhibit at the Motorcycle
Hall of Fame museum in
Pickerington, Ohio, in June
titled "MotoStars: Celebri-
ties + Motorcycles."

While the weather might
be chilly at times, the boys'
basketball playoffs have
been heating up, with sever-
al area teams looking to
shine at regionals.
Several squads have had
outstanding seasons thus
far, putting the Treasure
Coast in the running to pos-
sibly house a state champi-
on.
Already looking like one
of the elite teams in Florida
is Martin County. The Tigers
rampaged through the reg-
ular season with just one
loss an 87-73 setback to
William T. Dwyer High
School of Palm Beach Gar-
dens Dec. 18. Martin Coun-
ty shook off the setback and
defeated another of the
area's best, Sebastian River,
in its next contest and never
looked back.
Carrying a No. 3 ranking in
5A into the district tourna-
ment, the Tigers dispatched
Coral Glades 73-47 in the 14-
5A semifinal to set up a
rematch with Dwyer for the
championship.
Making it to the title game
for the first time since 2003,
Martin County made the
most of the opportunity. With
several of its star players, as
well as its key reserves, mak-
ing significant contributions,
the Tigers won a nip-and-
tuck affair, 73-69 its first
crown since 2002.
"I didn't realize that was
the year," Martin County
head coach Andre McIntyre
said. "It's a compliment for
our boys.
"It was one of our goals to
be district champs and we
achieved that. The kids
worked hard all season to
reach that point, but it's not
where we want to stop.
"We want to be regional
champs."

Local golf tournament


looks to sink putts, cancer


ByJOBN, MACDONALD
Sports writer

Jo Hayes is hoping for a
hole in one without pick-
ing up a golf club.
Hayes, one of the organiz-
ers of the upcoming Susan
G. Komen Rally for the Cure
Golf Tournament, is expect-
ing a huge turnout for the
event taking place Feb. 28 at
the Hammock Creek Golf
Club in Palm City.
"Last year, we had 82
golfers," Hayes said. "We
were able to send the Rally
for the Cure foundation over
$3500. It was the most we
ever raised.
"It was a great thing. This
year, we're hoping for more.
We're hoping for 120
(golfers) ."
While the event has
become a annual tradition,
last year was the first to
include men in the competi-
tion, which greatly
improved the numbers.
Although the festivities are
put on by the Hammock
Creek Ladies Golf Associa-
tion, Hayes welcomed the
new participants.
"Before last year, we
would have 30 or 40 people,"
Hayes said. "If we raised
$1000, it was a big deal.


"We didn't want to ruffle
any feathers, but cancer hits
everybody. I had an uncle
who died of breast cancer. It
doesn't just affect women so
why are we offering it to just
women.
"Men get cancer. Women
get cancer. Children get can-
cer."
For more than two
decades, the Susan G.
Komen for the Cure has
been a leading force in the
fight against breast cancer.
Through its support of inno-
vative research and commu-
nity-based outreach pro-
grams, the foundation is
fighting to eliminate breast
cancer as a life-threatening
disease. The organization
came about as a result of a
dying promise between two
sisters.
Susan Goodman Komen
was diagnosed with breast
cancer in 1978 when little'
was known about the deadly
disease. She died when she
was 36, but not before she
asked her sister Nancy
Goodman Brinker to do
all she could to eradicate the
disease.
Brinker established the
organization in 1982, fulfill-
ing her sister's final wish.
Hayes is happy to help
coordinate the event for


such a roble purpose.
"I thilk it's super," Hayes
said. "It'. such a great cause."
The tournamentt begins
with a hiotgun start at 8:30
a.m. The entry fee is $50 per
person :for club members
and $1(0 for non-members,
which includes entry into
the competition and lunch.
Sponsorship of a hole is $150
or $500with a foursome.
Thee are various ways to
enter, including a four-per-
son scramble, a ladies' divi-
sion, as well as a mixed team.
There are also contests for
straightest drive and closest
to the hole.
"We're trying to push it,"
Hayes said. "If we get more
and more it'll be better."

pleasecall (772) 286-0853.

Hoops
From page B14
Martin County took a step
closer to that goal with a
thrilling 54-50 win over Trea-
sure Coast in the Region 4-5A
quarterfinal. With the Titans
(17-11) holding a slim 43-41
lead in the final seconds,
Ridge Graham hit a runner in
the lane to tie the game and
send it to overtime.
In the extra session, the
teams continued to
exchange leads. The Tigers
(24-1) took a 52-47 advan-
tage with 1:35 left, but Josh
Jones hit a long range 3-
pointer to cut the lead to two.
After a Tiger turnover, Jones
had a chance to tie it or put
his team ahead, but couldn't
convert.
Martin County's Quamain
Foreman hit two free throws
to seal the win for the Tigers.
"It's been a good ride,"
McIntyre said. "I'm enjoying
watching these young men
get better and better."
Making the same case is
Sebastian River's Mark Adams
The Sharks have steadily
improved in the three seasons
since Adams took over the
program, culminating in this
year's run to a district title.
* Sebastian River received a
balanced effort in its 60-56
win over Bayside in the 13-5A
semifinals. Keith Matthews
scored 13 points and pulled
down eight rebounds while
William Wilson added 13
points of his own to go along
with five assists.
In the championship,
Sebastian River took on the
aforementioned YTreasure
Coast. The Titans already had
made history this season,
going from a dismal 4-18
record in its inaugural cam-
paign to being spoken in the
same breath as the highly
spoken of area powerhouses.
In fact. Treasure Coast
played both Martin County
and Sebastian River tough
this season. The' Titans
pushed Martin County to the
brink before losing by one on
Dec. 4.
Treasure Coast split the sea-
son series with Sebastian, tak-
ing a 47-46 win on a last sec-
ond shot early on in the
campaign before falling to
Sebastian 10 days later.,. ,
"I knew Treasure Coast had
a very good basketball team,"
Adams said.
The Titans entered its
matchup with Sebastian on a
high note, easily defeating
Satellite 62-43 in the semifi-
nals. The finale was charac-
terized by several swings in
momentum. After Treasure
Coast took a 9-8 lead after
the first quarter, Sebastian
River responded with a 15-5
second quarter to lead by
nine at halftime.
Treasure Coast came out
strong in the second half,
outscoring the Sharks 12-4 in
the third quarter to pull with-
in one. However, in the end
the Sharks' defense proved to
be the deciding factor, as

Sebastian River held the
Titans to six fourth-quarter
points while the Sharks
poured in 16.
The championship was the
first in the program's history,
while its 21 wins set a school
record.
"I'm really proud of our
kids," Adams said. "It's a spe-
cial time for us winning the
first district title for boys' bas-
ketball.
"We're at 21 (wins) right
now and .1 hope we're not
done."
In the victory, the Sharks
were once again led by
Matthews and Wilson.
Matthews recorded a double-
double with 12 points and 10
rebounds, while Wilson
chipped in 12 of his own to go
along with four assists.
"William Wilson came up
big for us," Adams said. "He's
been really good at the end of
the season defensively for us.
"What has impressed me
the most has been his poise
and his confidence. THe's
doing a great job running the
team out there."
Adams was pleased with his
.team's momentum going into
the regional playoffs.
"We're peaking at the right
time," Adams said. "We've
won eight games in a row,
including the school's first win
over Vero BeaGh."
Unfortunately, WT. Dwyer
found a way to slow the
Sharks' progress, ironically by
speeding up the tempo of the
game.
"We got stuck playing their
game," Adams said. "We knew
going in that Dwyer played a
fast, wide-open style of play."
Late in the game, Sebastian
was down by 11, but cut it to
three with just over two min-
utes left in regulation.
"We pressed them and I
think it caught them by sur-
prise," Adams said. "They had

GETTING ON ALL FOURS
If you are concerned about fuel
efficiency and the price of gasoline,
you might want to consider an old
money-saving strategy. Vehicles
with four-cylinder engines are sig-
nificantly less costly to purchase
.and run than those with six-cylin-
ders. In fact, they may be close to
hybrid territory when it comes to
their stingy gas-sipping ability. In
return for these savings, owners of
vehicles with four-cylinder engines
do not have to give up too much.
Compared with their counterparts
of the 1980s, today's four-cylinder
engines are technically superior and
deliver nearly twice the power. As
they provide better mileage, they
usually accelerate from 0 to 60
m.p.h. within a second or two of the
six-cylinders. Four-cylinder engines
are also among the cleanest.
At ADVANTAGE FORD OF STUART,
we will- be happy to answer any
questions you may have regarding
four-cylinder engines. When you
are considering a new purchase,
.our policy is that the sale is only the
beginning of our relationship with
customers. Come see the automo-
tive experts located at 4000 S.E.
Federal Highway. To schedule an
appointment if you're interesting in
improved fuel consumption call
772.781.6540.
HINT: A vehicle with a six-cylinder
engine is quite likely to be less
expensive to purchase and operate
than one with an eight-cylinder
engine.

to slow it down."
However, Sebastian (21-7)
wasn't able to make that final
push and lost 59-50.
"It went from three to nine
before I could stand up,"
Adams said. "The final stats
tell a lot. We turned the ball
over 22 times. That's a season
high for us.
"We had 13 missed free
throws. Those are tough stats
to overcome."
The Indians were another
team looking to achieve post-
season glory. Although it
came up short against the
Sharks, as well as falling by
two in the District 6-6A
championship to Eau Gallie,
Vero Beach is tournament
tested. Led by senior point
guard Jim Leffew, the Indians
compiled a 20-6 record head-
ing into the regional playoffs.

Pompano bite best on the incoming tide

Doc's Goofy Jigs, Gulf
Stream Red Red Fish jigs
or that old statndby Nylure
were each propdctive. The
only thing I newer tried
was a second rod with
sand fleas from he bridge.
And why not?
I have heard reports from
the Indian and t Lucie
rivers all the wasto North
Fork that anglerAlike the
Nylures from the boat.
They trim the tails to the
hook and use a piece of


shrimp to catch tleir nose.
On the flats, anglers will
put out that second rod
with sand fleas, and that
produces results.'
The one thing that
always comes up isthat
incoming tide, not ime of
day that brings the best
catch.
Now just get yourtide
charts, and plan you"
outing.
From the surf, the )lue
fish bite is on. Spoors, top
water and cut baits have
" all put fish on the said.
These fish are in the 3- to
5-pound class and rike
excellent table fare. Don't
believe what you havw
heard, these fish feedon
S mullet, not bunker. Tie
whiting come in afteithe
sun has been up and
warms the edge. A little
piece of shrimp on a qo. 4
long shank hook and I
short pitch to that fir4
trough will get a buck,,t
full.
Long casters going for
pompano should look
north in the Vero cover
down to Frederick Dot-
glass Beach to locations
with limits of fish or that
first trough mixed in with
the whiting for the short
cast.
The river anglers are ,4
starting a little deeper, 38o 4
feet is the start. Cast to b th
the shallow and deep water
for the gone, the fish are
holdings m.
You can also find lots of,
slot trout on both shrimp

and sinking baits, but not
much on top water. Mid-
morning is the best time for
that bite, but if you want red
fish you still need to be
there early. The doa shrimp,
gulp baits and the gold
spoon will catch them all.
The power plant area and
the eastside north of North
Bridge are good starting
points. Lots of drum from
the bridges along with all
the usual suspects. Dark
hours for snook using big
pin fish or casting flair
hawks. And yes, a strong
tidal flow is important for
the snook, 28 to 32 inches is
the slot.
Offshore has been quiet, it
is all about the conditions.
Cool and less than polite
seas have kept most tied to
the dock. From 80 to 125
feet seems to be the action.
Pay attention, and have a
pitch rod ready.
Lots of anglers are talking
about the fish swimming
past the boat and not
having a rod ready for the
cast.
But for me, I have to go
with Captain Squeeky
Kelly's advice: Run to the
"twinkly blue water," and
start there.
The fish just like the clean
water and so do I.
Until next time, go catch a
fish and pay attention.
There is a reason that fish
were there.

Hoops
From page B15
"He's played really well,"
Vero Beach head coach
Chuck Loewendick said.
"He's a three-year starter
who's been a leader on the
court."
Unfortunately, Leffew's
and the rest of the Indi-
ans' season came to an
end with a 51-47 loss to
Edgewater in the Region
2-6A quarterfinal.
Perhaps the most
intriguing team still left
playing is John Carroll.
Led by first-year coach
Rick Slone, the Rams (13-
13) head man had his
team playing well after
an 0-4 start. In its District
9-3A semifinal matchup
with West Shore, John
Carroll got 12 points and
eight boards from Jon
Robert Rea to pull out the
win, 45-38.
In the championship
game, A.J. Alexander
poured in 28 points to lead
the Rams, but it wasn't
enough as the team fell by
10 to Melbourne Central
Catholic.
"We played well," Slone
said. "We didn't play as
well as we had during cer-
tain stretches of the sea-
son.
"We lost our second-lead-
ing scorer, Luke Walters, in
the first two minutes of the
first district game to a high
ankle sprain.
"You have to be success-
ful with whatever you
have left to play with."
Despite the loss, the
Rams advanced to the
next round against Frost-
proof, looking to win its
first regional playoff game
since 1972.
With Walters in the line-
up, scoring a game-high
22 points, John Carroll got
over the hump in a big way
- thawing out Frostproof
to the tune of a 70-58 win.
"We played one of our
best, if not the best, games
of the year," Slone said.
"We shot over 60 perfect
from the field for the
game.
"We played 32 minutes
of good team basketball."
