Will housing prices


finally start to take off?


By DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
Real estate agents along
much of the Treasure
Coast say they're begin-
ning to see the light at the
end of the depressed
housing market tunnel
after February figures
showed the first increase
in single-family home
sales since the market col-
lapsed last year.
Both Martin and St.
Lucie counties showed
significant sales increases


over February 2007, while
Indian River home sales
continued to decline.
According to figures
released by the Realtor
Association of Martin
County, 102 homes sold
county-wide last February,
compared to 92 sold dur-
ing the same time period a
year ago.
Dave Derrenbacker,
president of the associa-
tion and the owner-broker
of Stuart's Water Pointe
Realty Group, is hopeful
that the worst of the


downturn is over and says
the current outlook is
promising.
"I think our Martin
County market probably
hit bottom in third quarter
2007, and we have seen a
consistently steady mar-
ket since the first part of
November '07," he said.
Mr. Derrenbacker is
basing his hopeful outlook
on factors other than the
number of houses sold,
such as the number of cur-

missioner Sarah Heard for
reversing the commission's
stance on the runway exten-
sion.
"I think it was clear when
she came back fromWashing-
ton in early June that she
thought this was the best she
could do, and she signed onto
it," he said.
In 2006, Ms. Heard sided
with commissioners Susan
Valliere and Lee Weberman in
voting to decommission the
runway and says she has tried
unsuccessfully ever since to
convince the FAA to accept
the idea.
In the latest vote, she sided
with commissioners Michael
DiTerlizzi and Doug Smith to
accept the FAA proposal -
which ignores the issue of the
runway extension saying it
was a compromise.
"I understand your feeling
of betrayal no one could
have argued harder for
ANAC," she said, in reference
to the Airport Noise Advisory
Committee's proposal to
shorten the runway. "It's a first
step to guarantee that we
have more control of Witham
Field."
Property that was once
considered part of the airport
is now home to the YMCA, the
Martin County Golf Course
and the Monterey Commons
office and medical complex,
among others. Commissioner
Heard and the other commis-
sioners backing the agree-
ment justified their position
by saying those properties


could one day be jeopardized
by future airport expansion if
the boundaries remain
unclear.
Mr. Shore says the county
should take the FAA to court
to prove that Witham Field
has never belonged to the fed-
eral government, which he
said has tried to control the
facility ever since it comman-
deered it during World War II
and returned it to the county
in 1947. .
"What we (WAAM) were
bitterly opposed to was the
part of the proposal acknowl-
edging the FANs claim of own-
ing the airport," he said.
Saying the group was "not
going away" in light of its lat-
est defeat, Mr. Shore claimed
this proposal could violate
Martin County's comprehen-
sive growth plan,- which he
said stipulates that runway
12-30 be only 5,000 feet long,
the length before the 1998
extension.
"If the county commission
violates the comp plan and
violates the citizens' rights, lit-
igation is almost a certainty,"
he said.
The county's special coun-
sel on airport matters, Peter
Kirsch, told commissioners
they had a good chance of
winning a case against the
FAA, but it would result in
almost the same outcome
and cost upward of $1.5 mil-
lion in legal fees.
Complaints about noise
and air pollution have
increased over the last several
years, with many residents
blaming the runway exten-
sion for additional flights. The
city of Stuart came out against
the extension after several
residents complained the
FAAs noise abatement home
buy-out program was creat-
ing strips of abandoned prop-
erties within the city limits.
"We didn't want it to contin-
ue to erode our housing stock
and tear up neighborhoods,"
Mayor Jeffrey Krauskoph said.
Commissioner Heard said
the FAA's proposal will enable
Martin County to limit the air-
port's growth once and for all.
"Now we don't have to
worry about expansion off the
airport property," she said.

Hobe Sound man dies
stabbing wound

Patrick Fitzgerald Ferguson, 44, of Hobe Sound,
died just before 2 a.m. April 3 from stabbing wounds
received in an altercation in Hobe Sound.
Witnesses told police they saw Mr. Ferguson and
another man fighting on Washington Street, with the
other man fleeing after the victim fell to the ground.
When the witnesses realized he'd been stabbed, they
drove him to the hospital where he died shortly after
due to puncture wounds to the heart.
Martin County detectives are currently interview-
ing Darryl Eugene Dolphus, 40. Mr. Dolphus claims
that he and the victim, along with the two witnesses,
were playing cards at a home located at 8210 S.E.
Washington St. in Hobe Sound when Mr. Ferguson
attacked him.
Mr. Dophus says he stabbed Mr. Ferguson twice
with a kitchen knife in self defense before fleeing the
scene. Sheriff's officers had not charged him with a
crime as of press time.

Martin County Commission nixes idea of
ferry service to northern Jupiter Island

For the second time, the Martin County Commis-
sion shot down the idea of launching a ferry service
to St. Lucie Inlet State Park on northern Jupiter
Island.
The Commission voted 4-1, with Commissioner
Michael DiTerlizzi dissenting, to take no action on his
proposal of ferry service on April 1. Commissioner
DiTerlizzi said that the service was needed because
the park is only accessible by boat and underutilized.
Mr. DiTerlizzi said both the town of Jupiter Island
and the Florida Division of Parks had offered to help
fund the service, which could potentially depart from
one of the county's current parks such as Jimmy Gra-
ham Park in Hobe Sound or Sansprit Park near Port
Salerno. Residents of the eastern Cove Rode area
protested against the idea of a ferry the last time it
arose, citing potential traffic issues.
The rest of the county commissioners rejected the
idea, citing the upcoming budget cuts and over-
crowding at the aforementioned parks. Commission-
er DiTerlizzi warned that their inaction would
increase congestion at other county beaches.
"If you guys don't want to deal with this, we can
keep building more bridges and keep packing people
into Jensen Beach and Stuart Beach," he said.

rent listings and average
sales price.
"The number of listings
peaked in March of '07, and
it appears that the average
price bottomed out in
August or September of '07,"
he said. "So since March of
'07, our listings have
dropped, and since August
of '07, our average price has
slightly increased, rising
from about $475,000 to
$490,000."
Mr. Derrenbacker, like
other area real estate agents,
uses average price figures in
addition to the median price
utilized by reporting agen-
cies. The average price is
derived by dividing the total
sales figure by the number
of sales, while the median
price is the exact mid-point
between the lowest and
highest figure.
Unlike the average price,
the median sales price for
single-family homes in Mar-
tin County fell from
$265,250 in February of 2007


to $221,910 in February of
this year.
St. Lucie County also
came out ahead of the hous-
ing market game this last
February. According to fig-
ures released by the Florida
Association of Realtors, the
Fort Pierce-Port St. Lucie
Metropolitan Statistical
Area, which also encom-
passes the city of Stuart, had
sales of 263 existing single-
family homes last February,
compared to 252 in 2007.
Median home prices contin-
ued to decline, dropping 28
percent to $172,900, down
from $239,000 a year ago.
Scott Wingfield, the gen-
eral manager of Thomas
White Realty Inc. and the
president of the Realtors
Association of St. Lucie, was
reluctant to say the real
estate downturn was over
and believes the current
improvement is due to the
radically different home-
pricing scenario.
"Certainly we're seeing
some signs that the market
is starting to strengthen," he
said, "but I think it's more of
a reflection of the tremen-
dous value of the pricing
that's out there right now."
In fact, Mr. Wingfield
believes the significant
number of home foreclo-
sures in St. Lucie County will
continue to force home
prices downward. The coun-
ty had the 10th highest fore-
closure rate in the nation
last January, with 956 homes
undergoing foreclosure.
"I think once we see the
number of foreclosures
decline, then you're start
seeing some increases in the
home prices," he said. "In
the short term, you might
see some more declines.
We've go to be getting close
to the bottom right now."
Single-family home sales
in Indian River County have
not shown any sign of
rebounding just yet. Figures
released by the Realtors
Association of Indian River
County show 100 home
sales in February, compared
to 110 in February of 2007.
The median price fell from
$237,500 to $180,000.
Alex "Buzz" MacWillian,


the president and broker of
Alex MacWilliam Real Estate
inVero Beach, says he hasn't
a clue when the local real
estate market might hit bot-
tom and says that's hinder-
ing sales.
"The locals just aren't buy-
ing and selling," he said.
"They're playing the waiting
game to see the bottom."
Mr. MacWilliam attributes
part of the problem to Vero
Beach being a "discretionary
market" that's very different
from Fort Pierce or Port St.
Lucie, which are more year-
round and less affluent mar-
kets.
"Here they don't have to
buy," he said. "They can
afford to wait it out."
Unlike the single-family
homes in the southern part
of the Treasure Coast, exist-
ing condominium sales
continue to reflect declines
in both sales and pricing.

February 2008 show 32 con-
dos sold, down from 37 dur-
ing the same month last
year. The median price fell
dramatically, from $285,000
to $120,950. Sales as a whole
in the Fort Pierce-Port St.
Lucie Metropolitan Statisti-
cal Area dropped from 60 to
58 units, with median prices
falling to $126,700 from
$186,700.
Thirty-five condos were
sold this February in Indian
River County, four less than
the previous year. Their
median price fell from
$270,000 to $129,900.
Mr. Derrenbacker says the
number of condo listings in
Martin County has also
peaked, while Mr. Wingfield
attributes the continual
downward slide in prices to
an over supply of units
available.
"There's just a big supply,"
he said.
Both men affirmed that
the houses successfully
changing hands along the
Treasure Coast are those
that are aggressively priced.
"There's a price that's
going to generate activity on
every property, and you
have to figure out what that
price is," Mr. Derrenbacker
said.

Printer problems


are often tricky


(( can't print!" You
|wouldn't believe how
many times I hear
that each day!
My associates in the
technical support field and I
get a chuckle over how
many service calls we
answer with that problem
description. The tricky part
is figuring out what could
possibly be wrong to cause
that issue. Sure, we Usually
start troubleshooting with
the obvious stuff like "Is the
printer turned on?" or "Are
the cables connecting the
printer to the computer
plugged in properly?" But
most of the time the
solution isn't that obvious,
and there could be a
number of reasons why
nothing is coming out of the
printer.
I don't think callers quite
understand that a printer
problem seems easy (just fix
the printer), yet the reality
can be much different.
There are a ton of things
that must happen correctly
in order for a print job to
make it from a program to
the actual printer. A failure
in any number of different
places can result in the same
thing: no printer output,
and often no error message
to tell you what might be
wrong. Chasing down a
printer problem can be a
time-consuming and
frustrating chore.
Let's take a look at some of
the things that have to be
correct, starting from the
printer and working back to
the computer.
Like I said earlier, the first
things we usually check are
the obvious ones: Is the
printer turned on? Is there
paper loaded properly in the
paper tray? These are the
questions that we usually
ask the end user over the
phone, and most of the time
the answers we get are
accompanied by heavy

Compute This

sighs: "Yes, it's turned on"
and "yes, plugged in." I know
these obvious questions can
be annoying, but there are
times when that is the
problem maybe a cable
jiggled loose and (as
annoying as those questions
can be) checking there is the
first place to start. Most of
the time however, the
problem is somewhere
deeper, and we end up
having to go onsite to have a
look.
Sometimes the issue is the
ink cartridge. If the printer
has been sitting there
unused for a long period of
time the cartridge maybe
full but little "ink scabs"
have formed over the
nozzles, preventing the ink
from squirting out. That
problem will often manifest
itself as "blank pages
printing" or lines appearing
throughout the printed
document. The fix for that is
often a thorough cleaning
or, if the cartridge is really
old, a fresh ink cartridge.
Moving our focus away
from the printer and to the
computer, the next question
we ask is "Can the operating
system (usually Windows)
even see the printer?" If we
take a look at the printer
settings in the computer we

Food stamp program doesn't help
those who need it

I wanted to bring my comments to you on the real need
for food stamp program restructuring.
I am married with three children, and lost my jQb back in
February of 2008. We had little funds available for basic
living. My wife works part-time and makes just enough for
gas and a few groceries.
I applied for emergency food stamps from the Depart-
ment of Children and Families and was denied because
our household earned more than $100 a month. I was set
back by this action and could not understand why I could
not receive some sort of help.
I had many conversations with that department with lit-
tle to no help at all. Since the time that I applied, I have
recently been employed fulltime, but with half the wages
that I was making before, so we had to relocate to a lesser
than adequate home with the bills still being more than
we bring in.
I have worked my whole life and have served in the Navy
for this great country of ours and have always helped the
needy when we could. I think that the system should be
able to help us in our time of need.
The only conclusion that I can come up with is that we
would be better just to be jobless; that way we could
receive all the benefits the system offers. I know that this is
not what should be, but you would think that you could
get some sort of assistance just to see you through the
short hard time.
We have had a little help from our church and thank God
every day for the blessings in our life. I just wonder if there
are any other families that have similar circumstances?
There should be someone out there that sees what is
going on and should look into this problem.

New lottery is not worth it
I'm trying to understand the intelligence of the lottery
officials in Tallahassee. They devised this new gimmick for
"Lotto". If you pay $2 for a ticket, you can win an extra $10
million, and if you pay $3, you can win an extra $25 million,
if you win the jackpot.
Come on, if you won the jackpot, with odds of 23 million-
to-one, you wouldn't care if the prize were $3 million or $28
million. You would just be happy you won.
Imagine spending two or three times the money you now
spend on Lotto. It doesn't increase your chances of winning
any prize only the amount you could win if you beat the
odds and win the jackpot. Most players would rather spend
that extra $1 or $2 to buy more tickets, especially if the jack-
pot was a big one.
They should use a system similar to the powerball lottery.
For $1 more on.the ticket (total $2) you get a multiplier:
With each drawing they pick a multiplier, (a number from 2
to 5). If you win one of the lesser prizes, (not the jackpot)
they multiply that prize amount by the multiplier.
Examples: If you had matched three numbers and, the
prize was $5 and the multiplier was 3, you would win $15. If
you had five out of six, and the prize was $3,000 x 3 equals
$9,000. This would make more sense since many players
would spend an extra $1 because the odds of matching
three, four or five are a lot better than winning the jackpot.


I'm sending a copy of this letter to the lottery officials as a


I'm sending a copy of this letter to the lottery officials as a
suggestion. Maybe it will wake them up.

How about sterilization?

If we want to stop the abuse of children, we have to start
some kind of free sterilization or payment for sterilization
program. This would stop the breeding of children into
poverty.
Also, hunger is a powerful incentive to crime. Babies and
children suffer hunger because of an inadequate income
of a parent. The mobile food stands of the Hurricane's four
years ago went into every neighborhood and furnished
free food, through the Red Cross.
If we could bring those mobile food vans back into those
neighborhoods, many children would not suffer starva-
tion and abuse because the parent is incapable of provid-
ing it.

What happens to us?

It seems to be an injustice to quadruple a landlord's
taxes if all they are trying to improve the property. After
the hurricanes, this mobile home park lost 35 homes, and
the residents that lived in them. Our rent has gone up to
cover those losses. The park owner still feels that he isn't
making any money so he is going to sell it. He wants to
annex the land to commercial so he can make a hefty prof-
it. We have to lose our homes because of it. We are looking
at losing everything, but that's justice, U.S.A. style.

Stop using city vehicles

If public works and utilities employees stopped using
county vehicles for personal use, think of all the money we
would save.

No break from FPL

I want to publicly thank Florida Power and Light for stick-
ing it to the middle class once again. As if things weren't bad
enough with all the foreclosures. I've never once had my
power turned off in seven years. I've run behind in my bills,
and they said if I don't pay my bill by April 1, they are going
to shut my service off. Thanks for making life a little bit easi-
er in such a tough economic time.

Musical marvels
Dear Editor,

On Friday, March 28, nine-
teen of the Treasure Coast's
finest student-musicians
performed with the profes-
sional musicians of the
Atlantic Classical Orchestra,
under the direction of Stew-
art Robertson, at the Lyric
Theater in Stuart.
The students are members
of the Treasure Coast Youth
Symphony, under the direc-
tion of Dr. John Enyart.
These e young men and
women committed their
time and talent to rehearse
with the Atlantic Classical


Orchestra in addition to their
weekly rehearsals with the
Treasure Coast Youth Sym-
phony at Jensen Beach High
School every Monday
evening for three hours.
Many of the students per-
form with other community
bands, orchestras or sym-
phonies in addition to their
own high school instrumen-
tal music programs.
As the parent of one of the
students honored with this
opportunity to study and
perform with one of the
finest classical orchestras
on the East Coast of the
United States, I could not
be more grateful to Thomas
Servinsky, assistant con-


ductor of the Treasure
Coast Youth Symphony for
arranging this opportunity,
or Stewart Robertson for
"his leadership and guid-
ance. We cannot show, our
appreciation enough to the
performers of the Atlantic
Classical Orchestra for
their hospitality and
invaluable instruction and
inspiration.
With sincere gratitude,

Jeannie Ferrara
Palm City

Help put an end


to visual blight


This is part two in a
series focusing on environ-
mental stewardship and
ways that citizens can
make a difference in their
communities.

L ast week I shared a
story about my
golden retriever Mo
and how disturbed I was
when he ran off to
investigate something
and returned with a
Styrofoam cup in his
mouth.
The incident initially
left me feeling angry and
frustrated and thinking
about the kind of person
that would create this
visual blight and what I,
as one person, could do
to prevent this from.
happening.
If my dog Mo hadn't
picked up the cup during
our walk, it would still be
laying there today,
detracting from the
beauty of my neighbor-
hood. It just goes .to
show you that one
individual, even a dog,
can make a difference.
I've discovered it's
actually very easy to get
involved in the litter
prevention movement
and there are events
coming up right here in
Martin County.
As part of a nationwide
effort during the months
of March through May,
Keep Martin Beautiful,
the local coordinator of
the Great American
Cleanup, is seeking
volunteers to participate
in cleanup throughout
Martin County.
Teams are being
formed to spruce up
streets, parks, neighbor-
hoods, beaches and
waterways. Anyone can
register to participate
and can choose a date
and location of their own
or KMB will suggest a
spot that needs some
care.

ed volunteers are expect-
ed to turn out to help,
and KMB is looking for
some new faces to lend a
hand.
The Great American
Cleanup is a great way for
people to get involved in
a hands-on activity that
makes a real difference in
beautifying the commu-
nity.
I was surprised to learn
that last year more than
800 volunteers spent over
1,600 hours collecting
approximately 30 tons of
litter and marine debris.
That's a huge amount of
garbage that was spread
all over Martin County -
on our roadways, in our
communities and along
our beautiful rivers.
On May 3, KMB is
coordinating a signature
clean up and new wrap-
up event called Cleanu-
palooza.
Cleanupalooza is part
volunteer appreciation
event and part environ-
mental expo. This family
friendly event is some-
thing you won't want to
miss: Tune in next week
for more details about
Cleanupalooza and more
dirty litter secrets.

until then, contact Keep
Martin Beautiful at (772)

Thoughts on handicapped


parking, helpful doctors


wo different subjects
have been running
through my head
recently, and I thought I'd
combine them in a column.
It is amazing how many
looks you get when you park
in a handicapped space, even
if you have a tag, as long as
you look "healthy."
To a lot of people, healthy
means young. To others, it
means "not in a wheelchair."
There is no question that
people abuse the privilege
and use the stickers when the
person for whom they are
intended is not in the car. It is
also true that there are many
hidden disabilities for which
stickers are given, and it may
be time for the over-zealous
to give some thought to the
person using a handicapped-
parking sticker who may
really need it.


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well
I know about this, because
I'm in that boat.
I have a sticker because I
have lupus, an autoimmune
condition that leaves you,
when in a flare, with pain in
the joints, especially the hips,
and extreme exhaustion. I
also have part of a lung


missing. I don't look any
different.
Unfortunately, I cannot
time lupus flares so that they
happen when I can stay home
and rest. Sometimes, I need to
do the shopping or run other
errands. When that happens, I
will use my parking tag to
park closer to the store. And
boy, do I get looks. No one has
actually said anything to me.
If they did, I think I'd ask if
they'd been talking to my
doctor and knew something
new about my condition that
I didn't!
My illness is one hidden
disability, but it's not the only
one. Heart and lung condi-
tions can make walking hard,
and arthritis and other
autoimmune conditions can
cause fatigue and pain.

Challenging, changing times


Srl he Times They Are
i A-Changin,'" Bob
Dylan wrote more
than 40 years ago. Now these
prophetic words are more
true than ever before.
Basically, we resist change,
preferring to live by safe,
established patterns like we
have done things before. In
these inflationary times, our
jobs or the absence of them,
seem to be uppermost in
most people's minds.
Our lives are more ruled by
the earthly conditions, and
we have let fear take over and
the resulting misery that goes
with it.
There is a better way to live.
We have the ability, given at
birth, to influence our
thoughts, feelings and the
subconscious mind to create
more security, abundance
and happiness, no matter
what the economy is doing.
Here is how it works.

Genealogists never


leave a stone unturned


've always loved
cemeteries.
My grandfather took me
on car rides through the
cemeteries in Tampa when
I was a child, and would
encourage me to get out
and read the stones. In col-
lege, my roommate and I
often walked through the
old cemetery in downtown
Tallahassee, on our way
back to the dorm after an
afternoon of shopping.
Little did we know that
we would end up avid
genealogists, looking for
the long lost tombstones of
our own ancestors.
Finding that ancestor's
grave is just icing on the
cake and gives a very
satisfactory feeling, not to
mention the information
that may be gleaned from
the inscription. For the first
time, you may learn his full
name, or his nickname,
date or place of birth,
death, spouse or parent's
names, occupation, or any
other fact his family chose
to place on the stone.
Where he,was buried will
also tell you a story. It may
be that he is buried on his
own land, alone or with the
immediate family around
him, or he may be in the
church graveyard with the
extended family and in-
laws. If he is in the church
graveyard, you will then
not only know his religion,
but which church he
attended. This will lead
you to the records for that
church to find more family
history.
Finding the grave may be
very simple or nearly
impossible, or of course, it
may never be found. If
there is a death certificate
or obituary, the cemetery
may be listed. The county
tax assessor should have a
map with all the cemeter-
ies marked, but many city
and county maps have

them marked and they are
usually listed on local
Internet genealogy sites.
Check with the cemetery
office or church office for
records on file. If you find
graves that have been
maintained, that means
there are still relatives
nearby who may be of help
with family history.
Neighbors in the area may
know of family members
nearby, or other cemeteries
in the area you should
check.
Don't be afraid to start
knocking on doors. Ask
about any gravestones that
may be in the area that you
would not ordinarily find.
You may be lucky and
discover that there are one
or more gravestones in the
woods behind someone's
house, under the power
lines, or next to the road,
that will not show up on a
map.
These eventually disap-
pear, so get out there and
find them now, before they
are gone. I have already
lost some. I know my third
great grandfather is buried
under the power lines in
Atlanta, near the branch of
the National Archives.
The directions tell me to
go through private yards to
the power line behind the
homes. I need to go in the
winter when the vegetation
is dead so that I can find

the stone. This was his
farm and I'm sure his wife
is probably next to him in
an unmarked grave. I have
yet to make that trip.
When I started my
genealogy, I went to my
grandfather's birthplace,
and was told about an old
stone in the woods, down
the road from the church
and cemetery. "It's has the
name Beard on it, but it
isn't our relation", I was
told. We went out into the
summer weeds and
searched, but never found
any tombstones, just
redbugs. Many years later I
went back to find houses
built all around the area. A
young mother confirmed
that there had been a stone
there, but it had been
knocked over by the
developer, and after a long
search with her help, we
still could not find it. I
know that it must have
been James Beard, who
died in 1876 before the
church was built. His wife
was buried at the church in
1890.
Once you find the
tombstone, you may only
find a name, and maybe
some dates. But if you are
really lucky, you can hit pay
dirt.
I had a great grandmoth-
er, named Martha, who
moved, as a widow to
central Florida in 1860. I
had no way of knowing her
maiden name, but found
records that she had sold
some land she co-owned
with Susan and James
Powell in north Florida.
Susan and James also
lived near her in Polk
County. I guessed she was
a sister to one of them, and
researching them, nar-
rowed it down to her being
the sister of Susan, who
seemed to be the daughter
of Isaac Smith. Therefore,
my Martha was Martha
Smith daughter of Isaac

From page Al


County Airport Director
Mike Moon, also a long-
time Little League umpire.
After completing basic
training at Fort Leonard
Wood in Missouri, he
returned to Stuart to say
goodbye to his family
before heading to
Afghanistan as part of the
Third Infantry Division.
He also jumped at the
chance to umpire another
game.
"It's fun to do," he said.
As he grew up in Jensen
Beach playing in the local
Little League and watching
his father umpire, he
began to feel the call of
umpiring himself. Soon he
was enrolled in a youth
umpiring program begun
by a Jensen Beach Little
League coach.
"He learned a lot
between those classes and
working with me," the
elder Moon said. "Charles
and I have umpired for
three years together."
Moon was presented
with gifts and honored by
League President Carl
Baur before the game. The
vice president of the
league, Mark Rodgers, says
that Moon displays matu-
rity beyond his years.
"The best compliment
that I can give any umpire,
is that at the end of the
game, you can say that the
umpire didn't stand out ...
that the game wasn't about
the umpire but about the
kids," he said. "With
Charles, you get the feel-
ing that it was about the


kids."
It also doesn't surprise
Mr. Rodgers that the 2007
graduate of Martin County
High School enlisted in the
Army.
"He's shown a willing-
ness to serve our commu-
nity so it's no surprise that
he has the same willing-
ness to serve our country,"
he said.
Moon said he's always
wanted to join the Army
and would like to have a
career in law enforcement
after he completes his five-
year stint. He has the com-
plete backing of his moth-
er, Kathy Moon, who says
her son is very patriotic,
and his father, who even
recommended the Army
'when he found out his son
wanted to be a military
policeman.
"We've always been
behind his decision to
enlist," Mr. Moon said.
"When he decided he
wanted to be an MP, I
encouraged him to go into
the army because the best
school to be an MP is in
the army."
The couple says that,
though it's not easy to send
their oldest child off to the
Middle East, they believe
he has the best possible
training to equip him to
meet the challenges he
might face in Afghanistan.
"It's not easy to send
your son off to war," Mr.
Moon said. "We feel he's
received good training and
the necessary skills to go,
but it's still a risk."

Gold Trades over $950.00
per ounce. Silver as of
this writing tops $18.00. In
this economic market, St.
Lucie Jewelry moves
towards wholesale pric-
ing.
If gold continues to rise,
the price for jewelry will
become out of reach for
most blue collar workers
and we feel this is the only
way to continue doing busi-
ness competitively. St. Lucie
Jewelry sees over 100 cus-
tomers per day and we have
not slowed down. The eco-
nomic conditions continue
to deteriorate and we are
stepping up to the plate and
lowering prices to whole
sale levels.
Diamond prices have
stabilized as well as other
precious stones. Sterling sil-
ver flatware has been show-
ing up more and more with
some sets reaching as high
as $3000.00 so we see a
huge rise in people selling
off these assets to pay bills.
We are also now trading
precious metals as well
because the demand is high
both on the buy and sell
side.

the trade since 1979,

Piling On!
When it comes to carpeting,
most homeowners think in
terms of installing either wall-
to-wall carpeting or wood floor-
ing to underlie area rugs. The
fact is, however, that wall-
to-wall carpeting and area rugs
are not mutually exclusive.
Broadloom carpeting can be
installed with area rugs on top,
which serves to ground a seating
area, infuse a room with color,
or warm up large expanse. Like
layering clothing, area rugs on
top of wall-to wall carpeting add
texture, dimension, and color to
rooms, and make specific areas
within them, more inviting and
comfortable-looking. Try layer-
ing an Oriental rug over tightly
woven, low-pile carpet to add
interest to any area in your
home.
At our facility, we specialize
in green interiors and can show
you a wonderful selection of
area rugs that use natural, earth-
friendly materials to go with
either carpeting or wood floor-
ing. Our decorating services
include everything from the
floor to the ceiling rugs, fur-
nishing, window treatments,
color consultations, lighting
choices and more for homes,
offices and yachts. We are excit-
ed to offer you "green assess-
ments" of your living space, as
well as EMF analysis.

Genealogy
From page A7


and Nancy, but I had no
proof of that for many years.
One day, I visited a distant
cousin who lived near the
old home place. He men-
tioned that Martha's grave
was down the road in a
cemetery in the citrus
groves.
I excitedly followed his
directions, and drove down
the dirt roads until I found a
nice little cemetery in the
middle of the orange grove.
Martha Marie Smith, wife of
John Gillispie, 1823-1903,
and on her left side was her
brother William Smith, and
on her right side was her
sister Susan Powell. The
picture of the tombstone,
along with the deed and
records of Susan Smith and
father Isaac are my proof of


Martha Smith's parentage.
Always look at the other
names in the cemetery,
especially those in the
immediate area. Chances
are, they are related, and
you should take down the
information for future
reference. You may find,
buried next to the parents,
infants that are not record-
ed elsewhere.
Take a camera, and also
materials to do tombstone
rubbings if possible. I have
a whole cemetery of
rubbings, resting behind my
sofa, just waiting to be set
up in my yard, living room
or wherever I may want my
family cemetery to be
displayed. I'm sure my
family can't wait.
Always remember, just like

TRAVEL



Don't put an Australian


vacation on the back burner


On my own list of
"dream vacations" is
Australia and I am
gathering information as I go
along, since my "empty nest"
is coming upon me.
In my early days in travel, I
made sure that I listened and
learned not only about
destinations, but how to help
clients plan vacations.
I recall a time when a very
seasoned travel consultant
had a client who claimed she
always wanted to go to
Australia, and would one
day, but claimed it was just
too far away. The consultant
very politely replied "Well, I
can guarantee that it is not
going to get any closer
anytime soon."
The woman eventually
traveled to Australia and
loved it. That stayed with me.
The bottom line is that
Australia is an incredible
destination and one that
you may want to put on
your "bucket list" (from the
movie "The Bucket List,"
about two men with a
terminal illness that head
out to experience things
they always wanted to do).

Unbelievable sites,
adventure, history and
culture abound; Australia
awaits you. From the Great
Barrier Reef to the Outbacks,
from Sydney to Darwin, you
can experience Australia's
natural wonders by many
means of travel.
Choosing how you see
Australia is half the adven-
ture. Since it is such a vast
continent, you will need to
have some plan of action.
What sites or experiences
do you want? There are
almost as many options as
there are experiences. You
may fly to one area, stay a
few days, see the sites, move
onto another area, or you
may choose to tour with a
group of like-minded folks
who enjoy seeing as much as
they can.
Another choice is to cruise
to the area and add a tour
package to see the inner,
parts of the continent, as
well as cruising the waters.
Choose whatever suits your
fancy.
Most fly in to one of
Australia's great coastal cities
and start a tour or cruise
from there.
If you are adventurous,
you may want to take a train.
The main rail line connects
from north to south, Darwin
to Adelaide, and on to
Melbourne; from east to
west, Sydney to Perth. There
are other public rail systems
that can take you on shorter
distances along the coast as
well.

A visit to The Great
Barrier Reef is one of the
most requested for Aus-
tralian travel.
Regarded as one of seven
"Wonders of the Modern
World," it is the only living
organism that can be seen
from outer space.
Stretching 1,500 miles
along the coast, the reef is
actually comprised of 2,500
individual reefs and is
home to more than 2,000
species of coral and
thousands of tropical fish.
The colors of the reef and
its inhabitants are so
vibrant it takes your breath
away.
Second on this list of
Australia's natural wonders
is Ayers Rock or Uluru, an
intensely colorful mono-
lith, considered sacred by
the Aboriginal natives. This
phenomenon gives a
spectacular light show at
both sunup and sundown.
You may choose to take in
the cultural experiences
that the cities offer as well.
The famed and distinc-
tive Sydney Opera House
offers various performanc-
es from famed artists to
Opera Australia, Sydney
Symphony, ballet and
theater performances.
Since you are going to be
in the area, should you
include New Zealand or
maybe some of the other
South Pacific jewels, such
as the Cook Islands, French
Polynesia or Tahiti.
There are so many places
to see, and so many options
to choose from. It is your
personal preferences that
make your itinerary.
Although there are many
options to choose from,
here are a few you might
consider that are more
inclusive, therefore saving
you from some the woes of
the declining U.S. dollar.
Collette Vacations offers
a 20-day tour, "From the
Outbacks to the Glaciers"
that starts in the south and
moves north inland to Alice
Springs and Ayers Rock,
then east to Cairns and The
Great Barrier Reef.
Sydney is next on the
agenda with a three-night
stay before heading to New
Zealand. The fare is $3,099
per person (land only) and
includes 26 meals.
Celebrity Cruises offers
a 14-night Sydney to
Auckland cruise aboard the
Millennium from $1,895
per person (plus tax, land
only). Princess offers a 12-
day cruise from Auckland
to Sydney from $1,495 per
person (plus tax, land only).
Both offer aland add-on
package atn additional
cost.
Whatever the form of
travel that suits your taste,
Australia is a must-see
destination.

From page A7
mind about having a job
there. He wrote it all down in
his journal and saw himself
sitting at a certain desk that
wasn't presently being used. I
had him clearly write down
and outline the kind of
papers and work he would be
doing. He even visualized
himself receiving a pay
envelope every Friday. He
continued to build up specific
details and pictures of his
duties in his mind and on
paper. Then I had him affirm
and say the words out loud
every day. He impressed the
job in his subconscious mind
until it began to take root and
grow in spirit.
After doing this process for
about three weeks, the
company called him. He got
the job.
Does this sound too simple
to be true? Only if you let
doubt, fear, indecision or lack
of positive action keep you
sidetracked or stuck. The
supreme law of the universe
is "like attracts like." The real
essence of success is to sow
the seeds of cheerful service.
Then let the universe do its
work and bring you the
material reward for the
service given. This surrender
creates patience, trust and
faith in the higher power. The
more we use this power, the
safer we feel. Stress goes
down. We come alive in spirit,
and joy returns to our hearts
and lives.
This awesome power of
visualization and
impressing positive thought
forms upon the subconscious
mind and is available to every
human on earth. It can be
used to manifest anything
you truly desire. Just be sure


that the reasons are for the
higher good of all concerned.
You can do this. It is
workable. You were born to
do great things in life, not to
live in mediocrity. The above
process has little to do with
formal education, experience
or privilege. It has every thing
to do with surrender of the
fear and doubt living in the
lower mind and asking the
higher will to take over, come
alive and start working. The
law is a 10- or 100-fold return.
Every seed wants to
multiply and increase many
times over its own seed.
Then, when you are feeling
safe and abundant, take care
of your own and family needs
first. Save for future needs.
You are now the light. When
others feel your energy and
want to know your secrets,
teach them. Pass the torch of
truth to the next generation.
This is a tremendous life well-
lived and justifies our
purpose and time on earth.
The sweetest news is the best
is yet to come.

From page A7


Yes, there are people who
abuse the privilege of
handicapped parking.
Believe me, I'd rather feel well
and not be able to use the
space.
Next time you see someone
like me, give her the benefit of
the doubt. And, if you have a
sticker, don't abuse it, and
don't leave it dangling when
you drive. It's a distraction
that could cause an accident.
The other thought was
about going to the doctor.
It's been said that married
couples start to look alike, or
that dogs and owners
resemble each other. I don't
know if either of these things
is true, but I have observed
that offices where the staff
and nurses are the most
courteous and friendly are
the ones where the doctors
treat the patients with
respect, as well.
In other words, from the
doctor on down, the word is
that patients are to be treated
with dignity. In offices where
the doctor is rude, doesn't
apologize for running late
and makes patients jump
through hoops to get forms
filled out, the staff usually
treats patients the same way.
In offices where the doctor
respects the patient and
understands that the patient's
time matters, the staff and
nurses usually behave the
same way.


As a patient and a caregiver,
I have learned that I have to
make frequent requests of
doctors and staff to get help
with insurance forms, extra
therapy and all that comes
with being a patient or
caregiver.
Some offices understand
that it is a struggle and try to
make it as easy as is possible.
Others, from the doctor on
down, do not understand and
seem to make everything that
much harder.
I've decided that my
husband and I will only go to
doctors who understand that
we are coping with multiple
medical problems and that
we'll manage with just that
little extra bit of help, and a
dollop of kindness.
If you find that you are not
satisfied with the level of
service at a doctor's office,
either from the doctor or staff,
speak to the doctor. If you
don't get anywhere, look
elsewhere. You're entitled to
be treated with respect.
One more thing: Several
readers have asked me if I
know of support groups for
people with fibromyalgia. If
you know of such a group,
please e-mail me at skop-
pel@bellsouth.net.

From page A5
can tell a lot of things right
away. If the operating system
can't "see" the printer then it
may show up as "grayed
out," and you may have
documents queued up,
waiting for the print device
to come back online. For


that you usually have to dig a
little deeper and check what
ports the computer is trying
to use and sometimes switch
the ports around to get it to
work. (I actually see that
issue quite frequently).
Sometimes the "default
printer" settings has been
changed to a non-existent or
"virtual" printer causing any
print jobs not to be routed


properly, and the solution is
to set the correct printer to
the default.
There can be many more
reasons why a print job
doesn't make it to the
printer, ranging from driver
problems to issues relating
to the program that you are
trying to print from.
The point of this week's
column was to illustrate that


most of the time you have to
dig a little deeper. Most
solutions to common
computer problems are not
as obvious as they initially
appear.

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
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectat
customers.


Virtually every car dealer
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is orogrammed into

Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-

by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line

dent for four years and
appears weekly on HGTV's
"Cash in the Attic," during
which he travels the nation
helping people learn the
value of their possessions.
He has also starred on
'Antiques Roadshow" and
does a regular news seg-
ment on WPTV-5 called
"What's it Worth Wednes-
days."
He and Mr. Strahm have
also been taking their own
non-televised appraisal show
on the road locally for about
five years.
They both agree that the
most unusual item they saw at
the Hobe Sound event held at
the Garden of Goods Galleries
was a 1940's-era TENS unit
brought in by Francine Kitt of
Palm City.
"I don't think I'll see another
one today," Mr. Luke said, refer-
ring to the transcutaneous elec-
trical nerve stimulator that Ms.
Kitt brought in.
Her TENS unit was an
antique, car battery-sized box,
compared to the pocket-sized
units used today to alleviate
pain through the transmission
of electrical impulses. Mr. Luke
explained to her that "old,"
doesn't necessarily mean valu-
able.
"Put it on eBay," he said.
"That's going to be your best
bet."
Hobe Sound sisters Donna
Lentz and Mary Tomczyk
unpacked a World War I-era


vitrine. The two sisters were
disappointed to find out the
wooden curio cabinet was
only worth about $125.
"We were thinking it was
worth more money," Ms.
Lentz said. "We were told not
to ever dust it, but now I can
even paint it."
Eugene Angelone and
Landy Tiffany, a father and
daughter from Fort Pierce,
brought in an old wooden
chair with an unusual back. It
was the first time they'd ever
had anything appraised, Ms.
Tiffany said, and Mr. Luke told
them it was built in the 19th
.century and would sell for
about $400.
"I watch his show all the
time," Ms. Tiffany said.
Mr. Luke himself began to
get excited when a woman
then unpacked a white polar
bear crafted of porcelain. He
told the woman who
declined to be named that
it was made by the German
company Meissen just after
the turn of the 20th century
The piece was slightly
chipped and had some other
flaws making it worth
between $3,000 and $4,000.
"If it were in excellent pris-
tine condition," he said, "it
would sell for about $10,000."
According to Mr. Strahm,
the polar bear was one of just
a few valuable items that day.
"We actually saw two paint-
ings that were worth about
$10,000 apiece," he said.
Mr. Strahm says the quality


and the value of the items
they're appraising nowadays
have increased since "The
Appraisal Guys" began their
local road shows.
"We had a lot of really quali-
ty items that we're not used to
seeing in a short period of
time," he said. "Now that we're
doing these events more, peo-
ple are digging deep, and
they're finding items of more
value."
Local artist Dan Mackin sat
amidst the dozens of people
awaiting their appraisals,
hand-painting coconuts that
were used later that evening
as door prizes for a cocktail
reception featuring renowned
harpist Marcos Vega. The
day's events included a silent
auction and a raffle for a surf-
board hand-painted by Mr.
Mackin.
Jennifer Ferrari, the execu-
tive director of the Hobe
Sound Chamber of Com-
merce, said she was "extreme-
ly pleased" with the event,
and that the $6,000 raised
from the day's events would
help finish the inside of the
chamber's new building.
"We were honored to have
Tim Luke and Greg Strahm be
part of our event," she said.
"They were so kind and help-
ful to all of our guests, and
they were especially compas-
sionate when it came time to
break the news that certain
cherished items were not very
valuable."

Musical 'South Pacific' brings

enchantment to Lyric Theatre


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
"South Pacific" is one of) the
most honored musicals of all time,
celebrating its 50th anniversary
next year, yet the Rodgers and
Hammerstein show, based on
James Michener's Pulitzer-Prize
winning novel, "Tales of the South
Pacific," couldn't be more timely.
Its message of racial tolerance
was controversial in 1949, but it is
one that resonates today. Shiloh

"It's one of the shows I love and
one of the least done in communi-

she said. "It's fast-moving and has
wonderful music. It's a show I've
been wanting to do for several
years because I'm so passionate
about it."
She is thrilled with the cast she's

"They're the most wonderful

and I saw her as Lucy in "You're a

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Release feelings and emotions you have been hold-

Ethnic chicken dinners, glazes, cannoli


Chicken is the dinner of
the day. We're going to
make an original
recipe for arroz con pollo,
and a Mexican recipe from
my daughter, Kimberly.
Chicken is the most
versatile of meats. It's low fat
(sans skin) and inexpensive.
When buying a whole
chicken, remove the bag
inside the body. You did
know there is a bag of
giblets such as neck,
gizzard, heart and liver in
the chicken? Please don't
feel insulted. I knew some-
one who thought the
chicken came already
stuffed.
Rinse the inside of the
chicken, and remove any
fat. Soak chicken in cold,
salted water for about 1
hour; this step will make the
meat taste fresher.
An authentic cannoli (yes,
the filling is made of ricotta)
and simple glazes complete
the picture.
Enjoy. See you next week.

CANNOLI
Regular and low fat

Cannoli shells are very
difficult to make, but
supermarkets and most
Italian delis sell them
ready-made, six to a box.
The cannoli I remember
as a child used chopped
pistachio nuts.

Your choice: pistachio
nuts, chopped, or mini
semi-sweet chocolate bits
or chocolate sprinkles (fat
free).
One 15-ounce container
ricotta, regular or low fat
1/2 cup confectioner's
sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup coarsely
chopped pistachio nuts,
chocolate bits or choco-
late sprinkles (use half in
the filling and the rest for
the ends)
1/8 cup each, finely
chopped candied citron
and candied orange peel
(optional)

Mix confectioner's sugar
with ricotta. Add vanilla and
your choice of remaining
ingredients. Chill. Fill shells
shortly before serving,
smoothing out the ends. Dip
ends in chopped nuts,
chocolate bits or chocolate
sprinkles. Dust with confec-
tioner's sugar.
Note: Place filling in a
plastic bag, cut off one tip
and squeeze into shell.

Emile."
Ms. McCarthy also sin-
gled out Travis Easton, as
sailor Luther Billis, the role
made famous by Ray Wal-
ston. Treasure Coast the-
ater-goers will remember
him as one of the hysteri-
cal stepsisters in "Cin-
derella" last November.
Others in the cast include
Leslie Parker Earli as Mary
and Rick Decker and
Angela Reyes as Lieu-
tenant Cable and Liat, the
other set of star-crossed
lovers in the show.
The director feels that
the show is not only enter-
taining, but also right for
the times.
"As far as I'm concerned,
as old as the show is, it is
very timely. It's about the
futility of war and preju-
dice, the idea that people
who find hatred and preju-
dice need to take a second
look because we are all
human beings and have
the same heart."
Ms. McCarthy, who is the
mother of Hometown
News computer columnist
Sean McCarthy, came to
directing by accident.
"I was auditioning for a
part and the director
walked out," she said. "I'd
never done anything back-
stage, but because I knew
the music, I was asked to
direct. I knew nothing
about it, but I got bit by

Still hope on dealer fees


Earl Stewart is the owner
and general manager of Earl
Stewart Toyota in North
Palm Beach. The dealership
is located at 1215 N. Federal
Highway in Lake Park.
Contact him atwww.earl-
stewarttoyota.com, call
(561) 358-1474, fax (561)
658-0746 or e-mail
earls@earlstewarttoyota.co
m.
My column, "The
dealer fee, bestiality
and politics"
(available online,
www. myhometownnews. net)
voices my concern for the
success of our efforts to end
or better regulate the car
dealers' license to steal, the
infamous dealer fee.
What a difference a day (or
two) makes.
On March 25, Daniel
Vasquez, consumer reporter
for the Fort Lauderdale-
based Sun Sentinel, wrote a
great column about the
dealer fee and its unfairness
to the car buyer. You can
read this online at
www.SunSentinel.com.
There was a huge, support- '
ive e-mail response to this
column.
Mr. Vasquez listed the e-
mail addresses and phone
numbers for Sen. Alex Diaz
de la Portilla, R-Miami,
chairman of the senate
commerce committee
(portilla.alex. web@flsen-
ate.gov or call (850)487-5109
or (305)643-7200.)
Last Thursday afternoon,
April 3,1 I was driving my
wife, Nancy, to Tampa for
some minor surgery on her
foot. Just before we arrived,
I received a call on my cell
phone from Patricia Gosney,,
Sen. Diaz de la Portilla's
assistant in Tallahassee. She
told me that somebody had
showed the senator a copy
of my article and she and
the senator were concerned,
because I had said that I
was unable to contact him.
She asked me why I had said
that and I explained that I


//4


EARL STEWART
On Cars

had left several e-mail and
voice mail messages for the
senator and he had not
returned any of them.
She acknowledged that
the senator receives "thou-
sands" of e-mails and that
it's impossible to read all of
them. (One wonders, since
most politicians do get lots
of e-mail, why they don't let
it be known that there will
be no response or simply
see to it that all e-mails are
responded to?) She also told
me that she was sure that I
had not called the Tallahas-
see office. To which I
responded that I'd called the
Miami office and left
unreturned voice mails. She
said that she would look
into that, but she knows
nothing about the Miami
office. We agreed that from
now on I would call Ms.
Gosney in Tallahassee and
she was kind enough to give
me her e-mail address,
which she told me she
always responds to.
I asked her to apologize on
my behalf to Sen. Diaz de la
Portilla for expressing doubt
about his strong support
because of the breakdown
of communications
between us. Some of my
concern was because of a
conversation that I had with
Ann, the Tallahassee
assistant of Sen. Ken
Pruitt's, R-Port St. Lucie,,
about a week ago. She told
me she would try to get


some information on the
progress of the senate bill
from the staff of Sen. Diaz
de la Portilla and when she
did not get back to me, I
assumed there was no
progress. Ann had told me,
that because there was no
house sponsor of a sister
bill, there was no chance of
ever getting a law passed
this year. Fortunately, we
now know Ann was mistak-
en.
The good news is that Ms.
Gosney assured me that
Sen. Diaz de la Portilla is
solidly behind passing some
legislation to better regulate
the dealer fee. There is no
longer a SB 954, the original
shell bill for the dealer fee.
The senator has modified
an existing bill, SB 2150 to
include dealer fee regula-
tions. And the really good
news is that there is also a
simultaneous house bill on
this subject, HB 827.
If you read my last col-
umn, you will know that this
was why I was so concerned

From page B7
that there is no way we
could get a bill through the
legislature this year. Now we
have a better chance.
Later that same after-
noon,shortly after the call
from Ms. Gosney, Sen.Jeff
Atwater, R-North Palm
Beach, called me to assure
me of his unswerving
support of the anti-dealer
fee legislation. I hadn't
spoken to Sen. Atwater in a
long time. He explained
how busy all of the legisla-
tors are and I know how
busy he is.
To read new language that
was added to the bill, paste
www.FLSenate.gov in your
browser and then enter SB
2150 in the bill search on
the left. Then click on
sb2150c2.html.
All of the red words with
the lines through them are
redacted language from the
previous, weaker dealer fee
law and the green words are
new language. The first part
of the bill is not about the
dealer fee. Near the bottom
of the bill is where you will
find the dealer fee changes
and additions.

*MUln!aJmIA~gg4iu II.GlElJI'A


I'm very encouraged by
what I read. Even though it's
obvious that there will be no
attempt this year to make
the dealer fee illegal or,
unfortunately, even put a
cap on it, these are major
improvements.
The first big improvement
is in defining the word
"advertising." If this bill
becomes law, dealers must
include their dealer fee in
prices quoted to customers
byword of mouth, on
signage and the Internet.
That means, when you ask a
salesman what the price of
the car is, he would have to
quote you the full price,
including his dealer fee and
only excluding tax and tag.
Also, when several dealers
of the same make advertise
the same cars in one ad
(most commonly sponsored
by the manufacturer or
distributor), the price must
include the "highest price"
taking into account each
dealer's dealer fee.
In other words, if there
were seven dealers advertis-
ing in one ad with seven
different dealer fees ranging
from $389 to $999, the price
must include $999.
In my opinion, this will
have the effect of eliminat-
ing price advertising of this
nature. The dealers won't
like this one bit because it
removes the only advantage
the dealer fee offers, which
is hiding it from the cus-
tomer.
And the final improvement
is the requirement that the
each dealer's dealer fee be
posted on the window of the
car with a statement: "This
charge represents costs and
profit to the dealer for items
such as inspecting, cleaning


IYOUTHr


ACTIVITIES


& SPORTS


and adjusting vehicles and
preparing documents
related to the sale."
I like the idea that the
dealer fee must be posted
on the window, but I don't
like the language that is
supposed to be a disclo-
sure. The disclosure
should be: "This charge
represents profits to the
dealer"... short and
simple ... end of conver-
sation.
"Costs" reimbursed to a
retailer by the customer
are profits. Using the
word "costs" is a shrewd
attempt to disguise what
is clearly profit to the
dealer and only profit to
the dealer.
Furthermore, every
manufacturer already
generously reimburses
their dealers for "inspect-
ing, cleaning and adjust-
ing new vehicles."
Charging the customer
for this is "double dip-
ping."
Even if the manufactur-
er did not reimburse
dealers for this, what is
the logic of charging a
customer separately for a
car dealer's costs of doing
business? If a dealer is
justified in charging you
separately (on top of the
price of the car) for
washing it first, why
shouldn't he charge you
separately for the sales-
man's commission, his
advertising and why not
his phone and light bill?
We need to keep the
pressure on our legisla-
tors. We are making
progress only because of
your grass-root support.
Nothing matters more to
a politician than votes
and nothing matters
more to the media than
what interests their
audience.
The media is giving
strong support to our
cause now. This is a
quinella that the politi-
cians cannot ignore, the
media teamed with the
voter.
Call my no dealer fee
hotline at (800) 909-9879
and record your opinion
against the dealer fee.
Your recording will be
sent to Tallahassee.

Too much money means mediocrity on Tour


After watching this
past week's PGA
Tour event in New
Orleans, I am convinced
that money is ruining our
game at the professional
level.
Don't get me wrong, I
still believe that playing
sports at the highest level
deserves to be rewarded.
Professional athletes in
baseball and football make
tremendous cash for
playing their trade. Golfers
should as well.
However, the Tour has
become a bunch of jour-
neymen pros simply
looking to make enough
money to keep their cards
and pay their rent. Of
course there is nothing
wrong with keeping food
on the table and a roof
over your head, but huge
purses on the PGA Tour
have made it far too easy
to make a very good living
by being nothing more
than a middle-of-the-road
touring professional.
I found this pounded
into my head this past
week.
I watched as player after
player refused to step on
the gas and try to win the
event. The lone gunman
who was willing to throw
dollars to the wind should
he fail was reigning British
Open champion Padraig
Harrington.
You may argue that he
has the ability to throw
some money away in an
effort to win, because he is
one of the game's best
players and his bank
account won't miss a
couple hundred thousand
as much as many others.'
True, but he became an
elite player by winning,
not settling for 10th place.
Too many of today's pros
are secure and content
with finishing in the top
20. Maybe that is why we
see so many completely
blow up when they find
themselves in the position
to win a tournament.

Scopes
From page B1
Sagittarians think with their
spirit, not their minds. It brings
up the conscience and helps
you make wise decisions. You
are such a good judge, not to
mention being a hard worker
and a true, loyal friend. We
need you. Thanks for being
there.

Capricom-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You have such a strong sense
of duty and a deep sense of
appreciation for life in all its
forms. This positive
attitude rubs off on your many
friends and makes them want
to do better. You are truly awe-
inspiring. Stay above the small
stuff. You have so many impor-
tant things to do with your life.
The best news is you are
already doing them.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your quest for wisdom and
spiritual knowledge continues
to attract others searching for
the deeper mysteries. Your
path is truth, respect, love,
onor and human dignity. You
display these high values so
well in your everyday life.

Pisces-Feb. 19-Mardh 20
Uranus, the spiritual planet, has
been in Pisces for a long
time. Pisces is a mirror. We all
reflect and measure the quality
of our lives by the depth of joy,
peace, hope and love you
reflect in yours. You are "A
Bridge Over Troubled Water'
You lift us up and set us free.

JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

Once out of their "com-
fort zone" they cannot
play. Therefore, they stay
comfortable and happily
finish eighth. '
Peter Lonard is a perfect
example.
At this weekend's event,
he came to the 18th tee
needing a birdie on the
par-5 to tie for the lead.
Most of us would think to
play aggressively, but not
Lonard. He chose a safe 3-
wood from the tee, laid up
and never challenged the
flag with his third. It was as
if he wanted to make sure
that he protected making
par above all else, securing
second place.
Briny Baird is another.
I like Briny. He's a local
guy here in South Florida.
But in my opinion, Briny
doesn't play to win. This
past Sunday he seemed to
leave every putt short, not
wanting to be too aggres-
sive. He aimed for the
safest part of the green and
hoped for a miracle. None
happened, and while 16
pars in the final round may
win a U.S. Open, in most
Tour events you'll simply
move backward through
the field.
Briny has played in 254
events as of today. He has
not won a single one of
them and yet has career
earnings north of $8
million. His best finish on
Tour is fourth place in
2004. Does "Joe Average" in


your profession make that
kind of coin?
While there is nothing
wrong with players making
a living and playing for a
paycheck, professional
tournament golf is all
about entertainment.
There is nothing inherently
special about playing golf
very well that demands
people pay you for doing
so. It is only because
people are willing to pay
money to watch that there
is any purse available to
play for. Far too many on
the Tour seem to have
forgotten this.
In the old days, the Tour
and all of the players
understood this, which is
why the competition was
better. It's also why there
were more "characters"
like Tommy Bolt and Lee
Trevino. There has to be an
entertainment factor to get


people to watch.
I say we go back to the
old days and have 75
players exempt each week.
Fill the remaining half of
the field with sponsors'
exemptions, past champi-
ons and Monday qualifiers.
That would get the com-
petitive juices flowing, and
these guys would have to
play their rear ends off to
get one of those exempt
spots.
For the moment, I'd
rather shave the fuzz off
sweaters than watch a full
field of relative nobodies
play safe on every shot.

Don't let the wind stop you


SWy is this wind still
blowing, it's April?

This is the time for the
biggest blue fish of the
season. Walking the beach
and casting spoons, using
big top water lures or a
piece of cut bait will find
blues in the fifteen-pound
class.
Now, if I can just turn off
this wind.
Having talked about the
bonita and tarpon last week,
I know summer is coming
and this wind will stop as
quickly as it started.
The turbidity will leave the
water, and the fishing on the
surf's edge will be fast and
furious. The tarpon will be
there, big jacks, plenty of
whiting, snook and yes, the
big blue fish.
To target the blues, a wire
leader is mandatory, for the
rest, monofilament line will
be your best bet.
Offshore, live baits have
made a strong show both
north and south of the inlet.
The king fish have started
biting in 30 feet of water.


HENRY CAIMATTO
Fishing columnist


The first bait gets weight-
ed and dropped over the
one side of the boat. The
fish are under the bait
school and there may be
more than kings. Strong
dolphin are biting at the
100-foot mark using
anything green and yellow.
These are nice size dolphin
in the 15-pound class. Small
wahoos, are there too, but
you need to put bait down
to them,
The river bite has been
strong. All the fish are


gathered on the east side,
getting away from the
choppy water.
The surprise has been all
of the big trout. There have
been lots of fish over 24
inches.
Good catches of reds,
jacks and snooks have
occurred in three-to-four
feet of water. North and
South Forks of the St. Lucie
River have had the same to
report.
If you've found quiet
water, you've found fish.
Two tarpon have been
caught in the Little Mud
Creek area.
Dark, soft rubber baits
have topped the list.
Shrimp, jerk bait and a
swimming tail have kept
anglers busy.
The bridges, flair hawks
and chopped up river is the
makings for great snook
action.
Enough about the wind,
let's go catch a fish.

Henry Caimatto is the
owner of Snook Nook Bait
and Tackle Shop in Jensen
Beach.

From page B8


heels of an outstanding
freshman campaign. Slut-
sky ran roughshod through
District 14-3A, capping off
an undefeated season with
a tournament crown.
She also captured the
Region 7-3A title before
advancing all the way to
the No. 1 singles' semifi-
nals at the Class 3A meet.
"It was exciting," Slutsky
said. "It was a whole new
experience.
As a team, Martin Coun-
ty advanced to the state
tournament for the first
time since 1995, placing
sixth overall. The 'team's
finish was even more
impressive considering
Slutsky and the rest of the
Tigers' starting five were
all inexperienced at the
high school level.,,
"We were all surprised,"
Slutsky said. "We didn't
expect to go to states."
As a result of the team's
good fortunes a year ago,
Martin County's prospects
this season appeared high.
"Last season, we went to
states and we weren't as
strong," Slutsky said. "This
year, we expect to do as
well."
From this season's open-
ing serve, Martin County
has done everything possi-
ble to reach that goal. Tak-
ing on a formidable Saint
Edward's team that


itself reached the Class 1A
meet in 2007 in the
opener, the Tigers dis-
patched the Pirates 7-0.
Slutsky did her part,
defeating one of the state's
top players in Sally Wilkey,
6-3, 7-6 (7-3). The New
York native also teamed
with Jessica Colletti to take
down the team of Wilkey
and Iris Moore 9-7.
"I'm really close with all
my teammates," Slutsky
said. "We're all best
friends."
For Slutsky, being a
member of the Tigers'
squad is a relatively new
experience, having played
individually in tourna-
ments since she was 9.
"I've never been part of a
team,". Slutsky said. "High
school.tennis is different.
"I didn't know what to
expect. (In tournaments),
it's just me. There's more
pressure."
Despite the possible
stress of competing in usu-
ally at least two tourna-'
ments a month, Slutsky
has excelled. She is cur-
rently ranked 30th in. the
state, and looks to contin-
ue her rise up the charts.
She was scheduled to com-
pete in a tournament in
Naples, holding the fifth
seed in a field of 64.
Despite having never com-
peted against her opening


round opponent, Slutsky is
confident of how she will
fare.
"I think I'll do pretty
well," Slutsky said. "There
are always unexpected
people (to play against)."
As for the rest of the
Tigers' season, Slutsky
feels the team controls its
own destiny.
"If we practice a lot, I
think we can do well,"
Slutsky said."
