TREASURE COAST -
Zandria Bryant is rightly
proud to be a debutante.


"I think it's really just a
positive thing and great
accomplishment as a
young woman. It's a nice
thing to say about your-
self. Not all girls can be a
debutante," said the 18-
year-old Jensen Beach
High School senior.
"Some girls just don't
have the right attitude to
do it. You have to have
good grades and be a
good role model."

School Board


hears pleas to


keep pool open

Officials say decision lies with
Martin County Commission


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
STUART More than two
dozen competitive swim-
mers, their parents and
other supporters crowded
into the Martin County
School Board chambers
April 15 to ask board mem-
bers not to close the coun-
ty's only community swim-
ming pool in June 2009.
The swimmers represent-
ed various swim teams from
schools across the county
that regularly use the pool


located at Martin County
High School for their prac-
tice sessions. Both they and
the adults who spoke before
the board expressed their
fear the sport would come to
an end locally if the pool is
closed next year.
Palm City businessman
Dick Landrum, a former
U.S. Master swimmer who
practices regularly in the
Martin County pool, formed
"Save The Pool," a group of
local swimmers and parents.

City approves


Stuart marina


development

Staff writer
STUART By the end of
this month, the city of Stu-
art will be out of the mari-
na business, after the city
commission's approval of
the final site plan submit-
ted by Huizenga Holdings
for Southpoint Anchorage.
The city is leasing the
1.9-acre site to the Fort
Lauderdale-based devel-
opment company for a
period of 40 years, which
will bring an additional
$290,000 annually into city
coffers. Although commis-
sioners have been debat-
ing the terms and scope of


the 175-slip marina and
8,000-square-foot restau-
rant the last few years, they
still faced a standing room-
only crowd for their final
public hearing on the mat-
ter April 14.
In addition to almost two
dozen people signed up to
speak on the issue, long-
time Stuart and Martin
County resident Valerie
Jones spent more than two
hours as a paid intervener
questioning county staff
and a Huizenga Holdings
representative about the
size and scope of the proj-
ect.

Principal receives


flak over teachers


BY DONALD RODRIGUE
Staff writer
PORT SALERNO When
Larthenia Howard, the princi-
pal of 2-year-old David L.
Anderson Middle School, told
more than a dozen teachers
they would not be asked back
for the next school year, she
made a choice that adminis-
trators make every year
throughout the Martin Coun-
ty School District.
What she may not have
expected was the angry pub-
lic backlash for declining to
renew the one-year contracts
of 15 teachers almost a
fourth of the teaching staff-
and then traveling to New
York two weeks later to woo
new teachers to the district.
Although school district
spokesperson Cathy Brennan
said Dr. Howard was recruit-
ing on behalf of the entire dis-
trict and not just her own
school, the explanation did
nothing to ease the hurt feel-
ings of the teachers and many
of their students.
When school resumed after
spring break, a handful of stu-


dents held a protest across the
street from the Port Salerno
school on Cove Road. The fol-
lowing day, assistant district
superintendent Hank Salzler
visited the school and took
protest signs, T-shirts and a
petition away from the stu-
dents, saying they were in vio-
lation of the district's code of
conduct, which requires prin-
cipal permission before circu-
lating a petition.
Dr. Howard did not provide
reasons for the non-renewals,
which comprise more than a
quarter of the district-wide
total of 52, nor is she required
to by the state. She did issue a
statement to the media on
April 18, saying that the deci-
sion to renew or not renew a
teacher on a yearly contract is
one she takes very seriously.
"There are many factors
that must be considered,
including adhering to certifi-
cation requirements required
by law, adjusting staff assign-
ments, performance of duties
and projected student enroll-
ment," she said. "In every

The ball is the culmina-
tion of Delta Sigma Theta
sorority's annual mentor-
ship program that
involves, among other
things, training the young
women in etiquette, atten-
dance of cultural events
and lessons in ballroom
dancing, said coordinator
Verna Hunter.
Among the group is Port
St. Lucie High School sen-
ior Takisha Black, who has
had to adapt and make the


best of her circumstances.
Outspoken, articulate,
bright and confident, the
Fort Pierce resident is a
shining example of what
organizers of the debu-
tante ball want to cele-
brate young women
from across the Treasure
Coast who are "polished,
poised and prepared,"
according to the program
for the 2008 Budding Roses
ceremony.
But behind the white
dress, manners, grace and
pretty hair of the formal
coming-out-to-society ball
is a practical 18-year-old,

determined to rise above
the obstacles.
Raised by her aunt who
works as a loan clerk at a
pay-day-advance store,
Miss Black is the daughter
of a Haitian immigrant and
has lived most of her life in
one of the poorest pockets
of St. Lucie County.
"I'm just a person who
grew up in Fort Pierce,"
she said. "I know the ins
the outs, and I can say I
will not be a statistic. A lot
of people say that people
in Fort Pierce don't make it
out of Fort Pierce, but I say
it's up to me to make it.
You can always beat the
odds."
Ms. Black was not the
only success story at the
ball.
"It's helped me learn
more about being graceful,
eloquent and more lady-
like," said La Toya Jones,

I just thought I'd share
with you some common &
some interesting requests we
get at St. Lucie Jewelry.
1. Eyeglass repair, yes, we
do them about once a week
2.Gold Teeth please go to
a dentist
3. Watch Batteries with a
very unusual green grease on
the back not really grease,
but if it's really grimy, clean it
at home first.
4. Various body jewelry -
many I can't disclose in a
public column. Yes,we w ill
make almost any kind of jew-
elry to attach to the body. You
have to put it on yourself, but
we'll make it.
5. Don't take a hidden
piece of body jewelry off and
hand it to us to clean either.
6. Spitting on your finger
to remove a ring please don't
do this and hand it to us. It's
unsanitary and at least
extremely distasteful. (Blaah).
The best way to get a ring off
is a very special solution we
keep in the store at all times -
Windex, it works great.
7. Hearing aid batteries -
Yes, but not too often
8. Urns Yes, we custom
make sealed personal urns
that contain the ashes of loved
ones. We have made them for
family members and pet own-
ers.

worker at the county jail.
"It's good to experience
things you've never experi-
enced and be part of a
group that's being brought
into society in a polite
way."
The cotillion ball repre-
sents more than a spinoff
of the old practice of intro-
ducing young women to
society through a debu-
tante ceremony and a
return to traditional femi-
nine values, said Jacque-
line Rhaheed, president of
the group's Fort Pierce
alumnae chapter.
The sorority places a
strong focus on academic
excellence, targeting stu-
dents who are among the
top performers in their
class, its leaders say.
"We are presenting our
young ladies to the world,
but we have many sorority
members who were once
cotillion members and
have gone to college, grad-
uated, and have now come
back to give back to their
community," Ms. Rhaheed
said.
Miss Bryant of Martin
County already has a
strong devotion to com-
munity service. Her pet
dog is a trained therapy
canine, and the pair work
with the Treasure Coast
Humane Society by visit-
ing nursing home resi-
dents. They also partici-
pate in a reading program
that helps children
improve their literacy
skills.
The Jensen Beach High
School student plays clar-
inet in the school band,
sings in the church choir,
performs community serv-
ice with the sorority and
participates in a church
dance troupe all while
maintaining a grade point
average of about 3.5.
Although she comes
from a middle class family,
where her mother is a
retired banker and her
father a postal worker,
Miss Bryant said her debu-
tante training has exposed
her to culture and art.
"I've never been around
this kind of stuff, like
learning the waltz and dif-
ferent ballroom dances.
We young people don't do
this sort of thing on a nor-
mal basis, so I thought it
was really good, different
and enlightening," she
said. "It's just a good expe-
rience for anyone."
And that's been key too
for Miss Black, the Fort
Pierce teen who, since
becoming a debutante, has
traveled outside the coun-
try for the first time to
Costa Rica.
She has also visited sev-
eral colleges, including
Howard University in
Washington, D.C., where
she has been accepted and
plans to attend to study
criminal justice.
"My family life is really
difficult, but I told myself I
wanted to be a part of
this," she said of the debu-
tante experience. "I want-
ed to be recognized as a
finer woman ... brought up
on the right path and
doing what's right."

The new name makes a
clear connection to what

County says there's no money
for pay raises this year

The Teamsters union is requesting an 8.5 percent pay
raise for Martin County employees this year, but county
assistant administrator Taryn Kryzda says it will be
denied due to significant budget cuts.
The requested raise would have included a 3.5 percent
,i..cost-of-living increase, in addition to a 5 percent merit
'raise, retroactive to Oct. 1, 2007. Ms. Kryzda said the
county would be forced to lay off 20 other employees just
"to have the funds to pay for the proposed raise, which
.would have cost nearly $1 million after factoring in ben-

County employees voted last year to have the Team-
,sters represent them instead of Martin County Public
Employees United. Steve Meyers, a Teamsters represen-
tative, said Martin County could find the money just as it
did for the 10 percent raise given to county firefighters.
Without an agreement on the union's pay raise pro-
posal, the two sides will have to go through mediation or
a non-binding arbitration process, for which the results
will still need county commission approval.

Jupiter Island debating night access
on Hobe Sound Beach

The three-month freeze that the town of Jupiter Island
placed on enforcing limited beach hours on Hobe Sound
Beach expired April 22, but town officials said increased
surveillance by Martin County Sheriff's deputies and
Jupiter Island Police officers have helped reduce prob-
lems that led to the new hours in the first place.
The Jupiter Town Commission voted Dec. 11 to close
the beach from 30 minutes after sunset to 30 minutes
before sunrise due to neighboring property owners' con-
cern over vandalism and other problems, but has
delayed enforcing the new hours. The commission also
banned smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages on
the beach.
The new measures provoked an outcry from area
beach users and Martin County Commissioner Lee
Weberman, the latter saying the town had no right to
place limitations on a county beach. County rules allow
for 24-hour beach access and do not limit smoking or
drinking.
Jupiter Island town manager Joe Connolly says the
town wants to continue the increased police presence
on the beaches through the summer months and also
claims that Florida charter law allows the town to decide
what is the best use of the beach.
Commissioner Weberman said if the town attempts to
begin enforcing the new limited beach hours, he will
personally file a temporary restraining order against
enforcement. He is also trying to convince Congressman
Tim Mahoney not to go through with a deal deeding Bon
Air Beach to Jupiter Island in exchange for U.S. Coast
Guard land on Osprey Street.

Marina
From page Al
The owner of a small
marina and other busi-
nesses, Ms. Jones said she
was spurred into action in
mid-February when she
realized that the marina
expansion meant the loss
of the city pier.
"The more I looked at it,
the more I realized that
this project was not for
Stuart, and nobody knew
what was going on with it,"
she said. "A public pier had
been in that location for at
least 125 years."
Ms. Jones said her main
concern was the size and
magnitude of the project,
saying it would be bigger
than most of downtown
Stuart.
"The scope and the scale
of this proposal are off the
charts," she said. "It would
stretch from 'Confusion
Corner' to Flagler Park. If
you stand this dock up
straight, it would be 94 sto-
ries tall."
Ms. Jones said the new
marina would also cause
significant traffic conges-
tion in the area just south-
west of the Roosevelt
Bridge. Several people who
live in the immediate
vicinity said they back the
project, but expressed con-
cern about its size and
potential traffic problems.
One of them, Ron Par-
adise, said his three prop-
erties on Atlanta Avenue
could be adversely affect-
ed.
"We think the scale
should be addressed and
feel the city should help
mitigate some of these
traffic impacts," he said.
Marine industry repre-
sentatives and members of
the local business commu-
nity spoke in favor of the
new marina, saying it
would be a shot in the arm
to the local economy and a
boon to the marine indus-
try.
Tammy Simoneau, exec-
utive director of the Eco-
nomic Council of Martin
County, called it an
"investment" in the future
of Stuart.
"The marine industry is
one of the key foundations
to our economy," she said.

ous assets it will provide to
the community."
* Some residents, howev-
er, such as Stuart resident
Armand Pascual, decried
the private use of public
property.
"The public will be
excluded from using this
place unless they're
spending hundreds of dol-
lars in the restaurant and
bar," he said. "This is not
for the public good it's
for the public loss."
Throughout the deci-
sion-making process,
commissioners say they
strived to win concessions
from the developer to
ensure public access. The
executive vice president of
Huizenga Holdings, Robert
Henninger, said the pro-
ject's main boardwalk
would be open to the pub-
lic 24 hours a day, and the
gates on the other docks
would only be locked at
night.
When questioned by Ms.
Jones about the public's
right to use the complex's
parking lot, Mr. Henninger
affirmed that the lease
with the city would allow
limiting the parking to
marina and restaurant
customers, especially dur-
ing peak periods. That
would mean the public
would have to park at
either Flagler Park or
Shepherd Park and walk a
longer distance to the
promenade.
That kind of limitation
convinced Commissioner
Carol Waxler to vote
against the project.
"There is not as much
public access as I wanted,"
she said. "It doesn't meet
what I thought it would
do."
Commissioner Michael
Mortell told those in atten-
dance that the marina
would be more open to the
public than Rayz, the pre-
vious restaurant on the
site.
"Rayz was a private place
and was not open to the
public," he said. "There
was not a promenade open
to the public. I think that's
when it's all said and done,
we will have a better public
space as a result of it."

Wrote the letter below to
Florida car dealers and
have published it twice.
The first time was in
October 2006 and the
second was January.. I'm
sorry to be redundant, but I
want to give our approxi-
mately 1,000 Florida car
dealers one last chance to
be one of the "good guys."
By the time this column is
published in Hometown
News on April 25, there will
be about one week left in
the 2008 Florida legislative
session. There are currently
bills in the Senate and
House that will significantly
limit and restrict the dealer
fee charged by virtually
every dealer in Florida. The
proposed changes would
require dealers to include
all costs and fees in their
advertised prices whether
quoted verbally, online or in
print. This would include
prices painted on car
windshields. They would
also have to disclose the
fees on the window stickers
of their vehicles.
Mr. car dealer, wouldn't
you rather be like me and
quit surprising your
customers with this fee just
because it's the right thing
to do and not because the
law forced you to?
When this new law
passes, the dealer fee will be
of no value to you, anyway.
The only reason you have a
dealer fee is so that you can
tack it on the price you give
the customer to "get him in
the door." The dealer fee is


EARL STEWART

just "plus surprise profit"
and when the law takes
away your element of
surprise, it's useless. Drop
your dealer fee now, before
you're forced to. This is your
last chance.

Dear fellow Florida car
dealer,
I started in the retail car
business in 1968, about 38
years ago, and I have seen a
lot of changes in the way we
dealers sell cars and the
expectations of our cus-
tomers.
My remarks in this
column are made sincerely
and with a positive intent
toward you and your
customers. I am not trying
to tell you how to run your
business; I am suggesting a
change that will reward
both you and your cus-
tomers.
Virtually every car dealer
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of the cars he sells,
variously referred to as a
"dealer fee," "documentary
fee," "dealer prep fee," etc.
This extra charge is
printed on your buyer's
orders and is programmed
into your computers. It has
been made illegal in many
states including California.
You charge this fee to every
customer and it ranges
from a few hundred dollars
to nearly a thousand.


Florida law requires that,
if you charge a dealer fee to
any customer, you must
charge all customers. It also
requires that you disclose,
in writing, on the buyer's
order that this charge
represents profit to the
dealer. Florida law also
requires that you include
this fee in all advertised
prices. You don't always do
this and you get around the
law by limiting the number
of advertised vehicles (as
few as one).
The argument that I hear
from most car dealers,
when I raise this issue, is
that the dealer fee is fully
disclosed to the buyer on
his buyer's order. But most
car buyers are totally
unaware that they are
paying this.
Who reads all of the
voluminous paperwork
associated with buying a
car? The few who notice it
assume it is an "official" fee
such as state sales tax or
license and registration fee.
Those few astute buyers
who do question the fee are
told that your dealership
must charge this fee on
every car, which would not
be true if you were to make
the decision to not charge
the dealer fee to anyone.
These astute buyers are also
told that all other car
dealers charge similar fees.
This is almost true, but, as
you know, my dealership
does not,
The reason you charge
this fee is simply to increase
the cost of the car and your
profit in such a manner that
itis not noticed by your
customer.
This is just plain wrong.
Dealers will admit this to
me in private conversations
and some will admit that
they have considered
eliminating the fee as I
have, but are afraid of the

Background checks for those
that get food stamps

I agree with the letter regarding food stamps. I think the
program has a major program in this state. I see people
who are abusing the system, but the ones who need help
don't get it at all. All of the illegal immigrants we have are
receiving these food stamps and driving new trucks and
cars.
Does the Department of Children and Families really
check into these recipient's background before giving
them food stamps?
I can answer that; no, they don't. I think the workers
need to be fired at once. They are not doing their.jobs at
all. The recipients need a deep check into their back-
ground. Our hard earned money is going to the dogs. The
state is wasting money on people who don't need it and
don't want to work.

A rave for the food stamp program

I have something to say about the Department of Chil-
dren and Families. I have had enough interaction with the
agency to know they can be as frustrating as they can be
helpful. I recently applied for assistance with food and
health benefits for my children from the state.
Although I work full-time and have a college degree, it's
nearly impossible to make ends meet for me and my chil-
dren. The process of applying for assistance is a humbling
one, yet the department was helpful, timely, and never
made me feel as if I was a second-class citizen because I
was reaching out for help.
Within a month, my children were approved for food
stamps and Medicaid. I applaud them for their profession-
alism. Although they have their downfalls, they have really
helped my family in our time of need.

Take care of home first

The U.S. Government needs to stop letting other coun-
tries borrow money and start worrying about the U.S. We
have people walking the streets hungry and homeless.
There's not enough work for everyone. People are sick.
Social Security is a joke. There are too many taxes. Stop
worrying about other countries and how they are run. We
need to pull our troops out of these countries. The U.S. is
making its presence known too much. Let them work it
out and leave us out of it.

Project Iron Claw 2008

For over a decade, liberals, primarily from the Northeast
and on both sides of the development issue, have run their
candidates in Martin County Republican primaries
because it is easier to manipulate the electoral system in
lower-turnout primaries than in general elections.
Well-resourced local Democratic and liberal GOP elites
have established a paradigm of handshake, deals for
Democrats, not to run candidates to create universal pri-
maries, which are open to all voters regardless of party
registration.
These several thousand additional voters in universal
primaries result in one of two skewed outcomes: (a) shills
of the developers give in to excessive wage demands of
public employees, spend excessively on wasteful pro-
grams that grow local government and also support repul-
sive liberal social programs; or (b) shills of the environ-
mental extremists pander to the whims of local PACs
excessively funded by their elitists supporters and, like
their liberal fast-track development opponents, support
repulsive social agendas.
The most disturbing aspect of the universal primaries is
that the final election decision is made by an abysmally
small (usually no more than 25 percent) percentage of pri-
mary voters as compared to a much broader general elec-
tion turnout. Since the run-off primary was eliminated in
2004, the winner only needs a plurality.
Filing as a write-in candidate closes the primary, in
effect precluding its pollution by socially repulsive or fis-
cally irresponsible manipulators. This year a group of
mainstreet fiscally responsible Republicans opposed to
the excesses of secular progressivism has organized a proj-
ect known as "Iron Claw."
The objectives of Iron Claw are (1) purging the perver-
sions of our local electoral process; (2) protecting the
integrity of the two party system, and (3) rehabilitating the
local Republican Party.
Members of Project Iron Claw believe in the two party
system and would prefer healthy competition between
local Democratic and Republican candidates in the gener-

al election candidates or face a November choice of a
Republican nominee chosen without the influence of
thousands of Democratic voters or a much more conser-
vative write-in candidate.

Turn off city trucks

Finally the city is cutting back on the usage of city
trucks by employees. I still see trucks sitting with the
engines running for hours. Aren't they supposed to turn
them off?

Don't close the parks and libraries

Why should we give up our parks and libraries because
there is not enough money in the budget to keep them
going?
I have a better idea; stop supporting illegal immigrants.
Stop the food stamp program. Stop the Women, Infant
and Children program. Stop all of the low-income hous-
ing. Stop Medicaid. Stop the schooling.
It is appalling that our government is letting this hap-
pen to our country and to American citizens.

Truck ornaments are disgusting

While waiting at a traffic light ori U.S. 1, my passengers
and I could not help but notice a disgusting display on the
pickup truck in front of us. Two balls encased in bright
gold sacks were hung over the truck's trailer hitch. To say
the least, this is nothing bit a filthy pornographic display.
It should be a violation of the law.
I also ponder, with such a warped mentality, is this driv-
er fit to operate a vehicle?

Medicine is big on business,
not on compassion

I sympathize with the (ranter who wrote about the) lack
of compassion in medical practice. However, let me
remind you that these days it's less a notion of compas-
sion and more a money-driven thing.
Especially for our seniors and disabled, medicine is
after all, big business. The money pot is basically
Medicare, as insurance companies jealously guard your
premiums paid and fight you to the death over a claim
payment request. They also like to indulge themselves
with playing the blame game when put on the spot to put
up or shut up.

Check your medical coverage
before taking a trip

Before you pack your bags and take off anywhere, thor-
oughly check your medical insurance coverage for any
possible eventuality.
I'm getting badly burned by my insurance company
over a recent trip I took, where I relied on some clerk's
claim to collect and submit receipts on my return and (the
company's) general advertising claim that I was covered
any where in the world.
Now, I'm stuck with the medical expenses for things I
would normally have readily available had I just stayed
home.

Some children need Ritalin to focus better

Ways to reduce,


reusue, and recycle


Editors note This is part
four in a series of articles
focusing on environmental
stewardship and the ways
citizens can make a differ-
ence in their communities.

A s we discussed last
week practicing
.L Xlitter prevention is
very important, and how
much one person or group
can make a huge differ-
ence in the community.
Keep Martin Beautiful's
Adopt-A-Road program,
has more than 60 busi-
nesses, civic organiza-
tions, schools and youth
groups, places of wor-
ship, families and indi-
viduals that have already
adopted local roads and
promised to keep them
clean.
Participating in pro-
grams such as Adopt-A-
Road, and the on-going
Great American Cleanup,
are some of the many
ways you can help
prevent litter, protect
your quality of life and
increase community
pride.
Did you know that
there are also things that
you can incorporate into
your daily routine to
better the community
and environment?
Keep Martin Beautiful
is always promoting
environmental steward-
ship and one of the most
recent qualifying pro-
grams is Waste Manage-
ment's Single Stream
Recycling, which has
already been implement-
ed by Martin County and
the city of Stuart.
Single stream recycling
is the co-mingling or
combining of recyclables
in one curbside contain-
er. This means no more
sorting of recyclable
materials and no more
heavy lifting, making it
easier to recycle.
What types of things
can you recycle?
Most people know that
you can recycle paper,
including junk mail,
notebook and loose-leaf

paper. Other recyclables
include glass, plastic
containers, plastic
utensils, and aluminum
foil.
Did you know that even
Hershey Kisses wrappers
are recyclable?
A research group found
that if we could recycle
all the aluminum pro-
duced in one year, we
could replace all of the
world's airplanes three
times. This one fact
about this one recyclable
item proves just how big
of a meaning "Reduce,
Reuse, Recycle" really is.
All of the recyclable
items that we have
already talked about can
go in your "Single Stream
Recycling" bin. There are
also some items that can
not go in the curb-side
bins, but can be recycled
locally that you may not
know about. Plastic bags
can be recycled at
grocery stores and
supercenters, and printer
ink can be taken to office
supply stores.
Rechargeable batteries
can be recycled through
the Hazmobile, which
can be found at sched-
uled locations and
various events through-
out the county, and cell
phones can be taken by
schools or groups, such
as Keep Martin Beautiful.

Sleep apnea, part two: Testing,


treatment for a good night's rest


If you think you may have
sleep apnea, you need to
see a doctor. However,
your insurance may have
special requirements in
order to cover testing and
treatment.
The American Sleep
Apnea Association suggests
that you check with your
insurance company to
make sure the testing is
covered and find out
whether they require a
referral and the use of a
specific testing facility. All
insurers do not cover testing
for sleep apnea, and as it is
expensive, it is important to
check with your company
or plan first.
Being tested for sleep
apnea involves going to a
lab overnight to be moni-
tored during sleep. There is
usually an electroen-
cephalogram to measure
brain waves, an electroculo-
gram to measure eye and
chin movements, and an
electrocardiogram to
measure heart rate and
rhythm. There may also be
chest bands to measure
breathing movements and
monitors to detect oxygen
and carbon dioxide levels in
the blood and to detect leg
movements. Hard as it is to
believe, these detectors are
non-invasive, don't involve
needles and don't hurt.
If you are diagnosed with
sleep apnea, your doctor
may suggest one treatment
or a combination of treat-
ments, depending on how
severe the condition is and
on other factors. The
treatments are all intended
to prevent obstructions of
the airways from occurring;
it is these obstructions that
are causing the apneas, or
stopped breathing.
Because sleep apneas
seem to get worse when you
sleep on your back, the
doctor may recommend
sleeping on your side. The
American Sleep Apnea
Association suggests some
homemade remedies, such


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

as putting tennis balls in a
sock and pinning it to the
pajama top or nightgown.
There are also cushions
available to prevent falling
over on your back during
sleep; some of them are
registered with the FDA and
are intended to position the
neck so the airway stays
open. There are even alarms
that go off when you fall
over on your back, but they
may wake you up and
disrupt sleep as much as the
apnea.
There is some evidence
that sleeping on the back
with the back elevated from
the waist up may help, but
it's important to use foam
wedges and not soft pillows.
Sleep apnea is often
related to obesity, and
losing weight is one of the
best treatments. Fat around
the neck may narrow the
airway, making obstructions
more likely. Some people
with mild apneas find losing
weight does the trick.
Alcohol and other central
nervous system depres-
sants, such as sedative and
pain killers, may make sleep
apnea worse by relaxing the
airway muscles too far or
reducing the urge to breath.
Your doctor can tell you if
your medications could
cause apnea and perhaps
an adjustment in dose could
help.
There are appliances
available that fit in the
mouth to keep the airways


open. They are most
effective in people with mild
apnea; if your dentist is not
trained to treat the condi-
tion, your physician can
refer you to a dentist
familiar with the oral
appliances.
Surgery is an option for
some patients; there are
several procedures and
some are more effective
than others.
For more information
about surgery, visit the Web
site of the American Sleep
Apnea Association at
www.sleepapnea.orgto
request a booklet, "Consid-
ering Surgery for Obstruc-
tive Sleep Apnea?" ,
The most effective
treatment available is called
continuous positive airway
pressure or CPAP. It works
by gently blowing pressur-
ized room air through the
airway at high pressure to
keep the throat open. The
pressure is adjusted
depending on the level that
will prevent apneas in the
patient. It involves a mask,
and sometimes people find
it difficult or uncomfortable
to use. It looks a bit like the
type of device Hannibal
Lecter wore in "Silence of
the Lambs."
A combination of treat-
ments may work best, and it
may be a process of trial and
error to find out what is best
for your individual needs.
It's a challenging task, but
the reward is a good night's
sleep.

doctors and facilities
specializing in sleep disor-
ders that are accredited by
the American Academy of
Sleep Medicine, visit the

Computer desktop is like


an typical office's desk

"The desktop is where the things that you
need day-to-day are close at hand. Every-
thing else gets put away on a shelf, file cabi-
net or somewhere else."


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

Tou may have noticed
that just about every
computer you
encounter looks different.
Sure, they all have the
basic items, monitor,
keyboard, etc., but I'm
talking about what's
actually on the screen.
Windows-based com-
puters display a screen
called the "desktop." This
screen is the main work
area of the computer
where you, the user,
decide what you want to
do. They call it the "desk-
top" to help bridge the
gap between working in a
real office to using your
computer as an office.
In a real office, people
work at desks, and their
current projects sit on
their desktop. Some of the
more frequently used
devices in the office have
a place on the desktop as
well; things such as
calculators, phones, pens
and of course the work
that needs to be done are
all in easy reach.
But what about other
things, such as reference
books, customer records
and the water cooler? Do
they need to sit on the
desktop to still be avail-
able in the office? Of
course not. In fact, the
mental image of a desk


with all of the office
equipment piled on top of
it gets funnier when you
imagine a larger office.
The desktop is where
the things that you need
day-to-day are close at
hand. Everything else gets
put away on a shelf, file
cabinet or somewhere
else.
The computer is so
chock loaded with stuff.
(such as fax programs,
greeting card makers and
of course, files of all
shapes and sizes), so
there is no good way to
put it all on one screen.
So, they came up with the
"desktop" as a central
place where things can be
easy to get at but not hold
everything in the office.
Like the real world,
where people can deco-
rate their offices to their
taste, the computer's
desktop (like all work
environments) will often
"grow" according to a
person's personality or the
job they are working on.
Ever walked into an
office that had notes,
charts, graphs and all
manner of work tacked to
the wall? Think of that in
contrast to the office
that's always sharp and
pristine; you know,
mahogany desk, gold pen
and pencil holders.
Big difference in office
style, but if you look close
at the desks of both
offices, you'll recognize
common tools (such files,
staplers and phones), but
you won't find all of the
same items on both desks.
For instance, our first


guy might have a fax
machine on his desk,
while the second guy has
his fax machine in/a
cabinet. They both have
one in their office, but not
on their desks.
Look at a typical com-
puter desktop and you'll
see either a desktop that's
cluttered with icons in no
particular order, or you
may see a screen with
only a few icons arranged
in nice, neat rows.
If you look closely at
both, you will find some
common elements like
the "start" button and the
"my computer" icon, but
you won't find all of the
same items on both
machines.
So why does this cause
confusion? Simply
because we learn things
so often by looking over
people's shoulders and
mimicking what they're
doing, that it can seem
confusing when their
computer has a different
desktop.
But when you think of it
as an "office" and start
yanking open drawers
(looking in the "start
menu") you'll find most of
the common "virtual
office equipment" that
you're looking for, and
you may just find a
forgotten program or two
tucked away somewhere.

Richard Baron
Candidale for
County
Commissioner


N-,


ble Management And Reduced Taxes
This will be my goal as County Commissioner, to get Martin County back on track to be an affordable and
livable community once again. Promoting "Smart Growth" will establish diversity in our economic future
that will sustain the quality of life we all seek.

l Martin County residents face the most decisive commission election in decades! You have a choice stay
with the current tax and spend commissioners or vote in new commissioners that will represent the
PEOPLE, not special interest.

I am running because I believe in the three most powerful words in our country's political history,
"We the people." Additionally, I believe in the power of the voters to elect Commissioners
who understand when that power is transferred to them via the election process, they understand and
respect the importance of being a representative of the people, for the people.

The wholesale destruction of our wetlands and an unnecessary pressure to expand our Urban Service O
Boundary is turning the Martin County dream into a nightmare. Disregard for our prudent and successful
growth management plan has opened the door to a "free-for-all" use of "Exceptions & Exemptions," severely
weakening that plan. If elected, I will work to prevent this from continuing.

ht You will be voting to fill commission seats in districts 1, 3, & 5. You do NOT have to reside in
that district to be eligible to vote to fill those seats. Visit my website www.baron08.com for
more information about my campaign or to contact me directly. Vote SMART!
Candidate for County Commissioner District 1


I would
appreciate your
vote on
August 26.

drastic effect to their bottom
line. By being able to count
on an extra $895 in profit that
the customer is not aware of
or believes is an "official fee,"
you can actually quote a price
below cost and end up
making a profit. Or, if the
price you quote the customer
does pay you a nice profit,
you can increase that profit
by several hundred dollars.
This "extra, unseen" profit is
even better for you, because
you don't pay your salesmen
a commission on it. That's
being unfair to your employ-
ees as well as your customers.
When the rare, astute buyer
objects to the dealer fee, the
law permits you to decrease
the quoted price of the car by
the amount of the dealer fee.
This would have the same net
effect of removing it. The
salesman often won't permit
this because he will lose his
commission (typically 25
percent) on the decrease in
his commissionable gross
profit.
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.
Although, I never did
anything illegal, when I look
at some of my advertising
and sales tactics 20 plus years
ago and more, I am not
always proud. But, I have
evolved as my customers
have evolved. My customers'
expectations, level of educa-
tion and sophistication are
much higher today. Your
customers are no different.
As I began treating my
customers and employees
better, I discovered that they


began treating me better. Yes,
I used to charge a dealer fee
($495), and when I stopped
charging it a few years ago, it
was scary. But I did it because
I could no longer, in good
conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because
everybody else was doing the
same thing did not make it
right.
Now here is the good news.
My profit per car did drop by
about the amount of the
dealer fee when I stopped
charging it. But, when my
customers realized that I was
now giving them a fair shake
and quoting the complete
out-the-door price with no
"surprises" the word spread.
My volume 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 a lot of your former
customers. My bottom line is
far better than it was when I
was charging a dealer fee. You
can do the same.
Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that I
think of myself as the new
marshall who has come to
"clean up Dodge." In fact, I
am well aware that this letter
is to some extent self-serving.
Lots of people will read this
letter to you and learn why
they should buy a car from
me, not you. And, I'm also
aware that most dealers who
read this will either get angry
and ignore it or not have the
courage to follow my lead.
But maybe you will be the
exception.
If you have any interest in
following my lead, call me
anytime. I don't have a ,
secretary and I don't screen
any of my phone calls. I
would love to chat with you
about this.

Pool
From page Al
Mr. Landrum is leading a
petition drive to keep the
pool open and turned in
1,534 signatures to the
school board during the
meeting.
"The overriding theme,
when we collected those
signatures, was that people
were outraged that we
might have a lapse in the
program," he said.
Seasonal Martin County
resident Bill Dorney said
that area children deserve
the same chance he got
when growing up in New
Jersey and winning a swim-
ming scholarship.
"My brother and I both
went on to earn scholar-
ships, and I even swam for
Eddie Reese," Mr. Dorney
said, referring to the head
swimming coach at the
University of Texas. "I was
given an opportunity, and
even though I was an
underachiever, I was able to
go on to the University of
Florida and win honors."
Fourteen-year-old Jenna
Kingsley explained to board
members how important
swimming was to her.
"It's been my dream of
being on that (Martin
County High School) team
since the age of 8," she said.
"Dreams don't just get
formed in that pool, they


come true, and they're
bound to be crushed if the
pool is closed."
Jensen Beach High
School exceptional student
education teacher Conney
Dahn brought several Spe-
cial Olympics swimming
students to the meeting,
with each of them speaking
before the school board in
favor of the pool. One of
them was Aaron Lee Cole-
man from South Fork High
School.
"I'm a member of the
Special Olympics team, and
I need the Martin County
pool to stay open so I can
get better and practice," he
said. "So, please don't close
the pool, and P.S. thank
you!"
Before the meeting
began, Superintendent Sara
Wilcox and board member
David Anderson expressed
their support for keeping
the pool open, but remind-
ed those in attendance to
pressure the county for its
support as well.
"We have a three-year
agreement with the county
that ends in 2009," Ms.
Wilcox said. "If we need to
revisit this, we will, but it
needs to be in coordination
between the county and the
school board."
Mr. Anderson said it was
a "shame" that a county as
affluent as Martin County
did not already have an
aquatics complex.


"We oftentimes go into
joint ventures with differ-
ent groups, and then they
get us out onto a limb and
then cut us off," he said.
"But you've got to help us
by leaning on the county
too."
The community pool is
operated under a joint
county/school board
agreement that divides the
costs equally between the
two entities. County com-
missioners had planned to
have a new aquatics center
built by the time the agree-
ment expired, but reduced
revenues coming from the
voter-approved half-cent
sales tax for parks and
recreation land forced
them to redirect the cen-
ter's funds to finish work at
Indian RiverSide Park
instead.
Parks and Recreation
Director Richard Blanken-
ship says the $10 million
budget for the aquatics
center has now been cut in
half due to the tax shortfall,
but says the project is next
in line for county funding.
"We're going to the board
on May 6 to see if we can go
forward with this," he said.
"The critical thing for the
swimming pool is that we
move forward on the aquat-


ics complex and that we
extend the inter-local agree-
ment with the school board
so the existing facility does-
n't close before the new one
is open."
Mr. Landrum and the


I.


Save The Pool group took
their case to the Parks and
Recreation Advisory Board
on April 17, where they
were encouraged to attend
the May county commis-
sion meeting to show their


support for the pool. They
were also reminded about
the joint meeting between
the county commission
and the school board at
the Blake Library on June
18.

Principal
From page Al
decision that I have made as
principal of Anderson Middle
School, I have always had the
best interest of the students
and school at heart."
Until new teachers earn
tenure after teaching three
years in Florida, they must
work under one-year con-
tracts, which are renewable
at the principal's discretion.
Afterward, they receive
tenure and work under a pro-
fessional services contract,
which is regulated by state
statutes, according to Ms.
Brennan. She said that the
district does not "fire" its
teachers on yearly contracts.
"They were not fired, they
were not discharged, they
were not let go," she said.
"They were simply not
offered a contract."
Both Dr. Howard and Ms.
Brennan said that any
teacher not renewed because
of state certification issues
would be offered a position
with the school if the issues
are resolved by the beginning
of the new school year. Ms.
Brennan declined, however,
to say how many teachers at
David Anderson fall in that
category.
"The district's practice is
that we don't discuss person-
nel issues," she said.
That kind of answer hasn't
sat well with the parents of
many David L. Anderson stu-
dents, several of whom
turned up at the school board
meeting on April 15 to vent


their frustration to the mem-
bers. One was Robert Wise,
whose son is in the eighth
grade at the school and fears
that all of his teachers have
lost their jobs.
"When a parent can't give a
child an answer, he wants to'
find someone who can pro-
vide the answer," Mr. Wise
said. "Somebody needs to be
explaining to our children
why."
His son's art teacher, Juno
Beach resident Nancy
O'Neill, was one of the 15
teachers who will not be
returning. Ms. O'Neill taught
for 11 years in California
before moving to Florida and
teaching for two years at Stu-
art Middle School. She
jumped at the chance to
teach at David L. Anderson
when it opened it 2006
because it was an easier com-
mute, but now she regrets
making the change.
Ms. O'Neill has also been
working under a fourth-year
annual contract because
administrators can add a
fourth year to a teacher's
renewable contract period at
will. Otherwise, she would
have had tenure and most
likely be coming back to the
school this August.
Mr. Wise added that the
school has been gradually
improving since it opened
two years ago, and he, like
some other parents, thinks
Dr. Howard should be ques-
tioned about why she hired
so many teachers who were
later judged to be unfit.

person has what you need or
has the ability to become or
learn what you want him or
her to be," he said. "If there's
something wrong with 15
hires, and they're being let go,
certainly the person who did
the hiring should be looked
at."
Another parent, Lisa
Fearns, said her son attended
the eighth grade at Anderson
and that she has observed
the school's staff and princi-
pal for two years. She said her
son had very good teachers,
many of whom were no
longer coming back for the
2008-2009 school year.
"While the leader of Ander-
son may have good inten-
tions, somebody needs to
step in and have her take
leadership seminars," she
said. "I know the school
board has to see that the
attrition rate at Anderson is
troublesome."
Thomas McClain, a
teacher from the Spectrum
alternative school, also asked
the board to explain why he
was not asked to come back
this fall. Although working for
the district for 35 years, Mr.
McCain was operating under
a one-year renewable con-
tract because he came back
to work after previously retir-
ing.
"I have been working for
you for 36 years, and all of my
evaluations have been 58
points out of 60," 'he said.
"I'm not begging for my job,
but I believe in following pro-
cedure. If I'm going to be put
out to pasture, I just want to
know why."

to be on it to help them

some (other) people need
to look into it. There are

SMARTEN UP"S MA

EARL STEWART

(@TOYOTA


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
am sau~ijjrliing a change that
will reward both you and your expect at
customers.


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.
561*844"3461
We need to add
to our team in all
departments...
sales, service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.


Virtually every car dealer Of eauca
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much high
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
,'3: I[ V i :.,' I' B 1. I ,.11 i ',i -r sI r I c.. uld,

c:,rrn.il


S


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop,
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because I was
towers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and

Green Decorating
These days, when designers and
decorators talk of "green" decorat-
ing, they are not referring to a paint
color. Instead, they are suggesting
ways to select materials and applica-
tion techniques that have a minimal
impact on the environment and
people's health. For instance, it may
take nature decades to produce the
mature hardwoods that go into
flooring material, but bamboo,
which is just as hard, beautiful, and
durable, quickly replaces itself.
Similarly, "green" carpeting is made
from natural fibers such as wool and
sisal. Even if nylon is preferred, it
can be made from recycled fiber.
Other eco-friendly materials
include cork, hemp, jute, and
woods that lend themselves to sus-
tainable management practices.
Today, green is not just a color, It's
an attitude.
Our decorating firm specializes
exclusively in "green" interiors
because we believe it is possible to
create a home, office, or yacht that
is well decorated, and at the same
time, healthy and earth-friendly. If
you are concerned about Global
Warming and damage to the envi-
ronment, we will assist you in
selecting furniture, paints, flooring,
accessories, and more that not only
contribute to better health for you
and your family, but also help toe
global community and environ-
ment.
Call 772-781-3705 today, and
we will be excited to help you make
a "green assessment" of your home
or office. We can also conduct an
analysis of existing EMFs in you
home or office and offer suggestions
to reduce exposure.

Travel trends: Try visiting new places closer to home


J \ merica the Beautiful"
S could be the theme
LXof recent travel
trends in the U.S.
With the dollar losing its
grip in some of the more
popular worldwide travel
destinations, there seems to
be an upswing in traveling
closer to home. And why
not? This country has so
much to offer. From budget to
luxury, there are so many
options.
There is much of America
that is largely undiscovered by
many Americans. Why not
take a new look at our own
back yard? Whether planning
a family vacation, a get-a-way
or a historical journey, you
can find it all here.
You might choose to cruise
U.S. rivers, such as the great
Mississippi or the Columbia
and Snake rivers of the
American West that may
include the historical jour-
neys of Lewis and Clark.
What about a cruise along
the intracoastal waterways of
the East Coast? You can
actually cruise from New
England to Florida along the
intracoastal.
Small-ship cruising is a
great alternative to traditional
cruising, as the vessels can
move into smaller ports and
enjoy the option of taking off
in inclement weather. That is
the beauty of the small ship
experience. Cruise West,
American Cruise Lines and
American Canadian
Caribbean offer this type of
adventure.
Since 1997, there has been a
growing fleet of cruises in the
Great Lakes. Some incredible
journeys can be had through
one or all of these giant bodies
of water.
One such itinerary takes
you from Toronto, on the
shores of Lake Ontario,
through Welland Canal (going
through a series of eight locks)
to Lake Erie.
Cruising to Lake Huron
with visits to Manitoulin and
Mackinac islands, you might


view the impressive Fort
Mackinac built atop a high
cliff by the British in 1780.
From here you will cruise
under the Mackinac Bridge to
Lake Michigan, then visit Old
Fort William at Thunder Bay,
Ontario. This eight-day cruise
ends in Duluth, Minn.
Although Amtrak offers
trains from north to south
and east to west, there are
other train tours that offer
journeys along the rails.
Canadian rail travels from
the east to the west coast of
Canada through a most
picturesque countryside.
Or you can ride the train
through the Rocky Mountains
from Calgary through Lake
Louise, Banff, Whistler and
into Vancouver.
You can choose a tour that
will take you anywhere you
want to go. T
he National Parks of the
American West is always a
favorite. You might take a tour
that includes the Grand
Canyon, Bryce Canyon,
Yellowstone, Grand Teton and
Glacier National Parks all in
one tour.
Maybe traveling the wine
country of Northern Califor-
nia, with visits to wineries in
Napa and Sonoma valleys,
would be more your style.
Some even offer wine and
gourmet food tours.
Head south and pick a train
ride through the solitude and
beauty of Mexico's Copper
Canyon, a very popular tour
that starts and ends in
Tucson, Ariz.
What about Ballooning in
Albuquerque, N.M.?
Witness the mass ascension
of hot air balloons in the fall at
the Albuquerque Balloon
Fiesta.
Of course, the Old South is
always a favorite, whether you
move by river or land. The
romance of the south's vast
plantations and national
historical routes are popular
treks.
Visit the home of Elvis
Presley or the Grand Ole Opry

Katrina Coletti, Alyssa Beckman, Amanda Paul and Kelsey Moore rehearse with the cast of StarStruck Produc-
tions 'A Chorus Line'. Performances begin May 2 at the Lyric Theatre.

'A Chorus Line' promises


'one singular sensation'


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
The original Broadway
run of'A Chorus Line
stretched from 1975-1990.
Its 6,137 performances
held the record for some
time as the longest-running
musical in Broadway
history. Conceived by
choreographer Michael
Bennett, the show won nine
Tony Awards, including
Best Musical; Marvin
Hamlisch won a Tony for
his musical score.
From May 2-4, the young
performers at StarStruck
Performing Arts Center
bring the show about
dancers auditioning for the


chance to perform in a
Broadway show to the Lyric
Theatre.
Jennifer Jones, the show's
director, spoke about the
show and the cast of
talented high school
students with whom she's
working with.
"It's the quintessential
show about dancers in the
theater," she said. "It's truly
about the ensemble, about
the people in the show."
The cast includes James
Channing, in what may well
be his farewell performance
on the Treasure Coast
before going off to school,
as the director, Zach.
Also starring are students
in StarStruck's high school
program, including Alyssa

Ms. Jones has particular
praise for James Channing.
"What he's doing is very
exciting," she said. "He's
such a fabulous student.
He came to us for 'Once on
the Island,' and went with
us to Atlanta. He was
brilliant as the father. He
was spectacular in 'Rent'

also been with us in two
professional shows, 'I love

He's proven that he can
work not only with his own

passion and a drive and I'm

to be of service to others. Happiness and success
for you is measured by this.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
Measure the quality of life by the joy you feel in
your heart. Sometimes it is good to step back
and re-evaluate your priorities. Then catch a
second wind, re-empower your life and step on
the playing field again. Now you will make
much positive progress.
Cancer-June 22-July 22
Making the most of each main event in life is
the key to your success. Things aren't always
perfect. No one said you have to be a perfec-
tionist. Your strong heart and spirit keep you
motivated and moving forward.
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Facing your daily challenges in life and con-
fronting them one at a time keeps sanity and
balance. If you let things slide, they build up

Italian bread, sausage bread: A tribute


to my honey, sweetheart and best friend


Hello, smart shoppers.
If you're leaving for
the summer, you can
read my column online at
www.romancingthestove.net
For Mother's Day, give the
gift that keeps on giving, an
autographed copy of my
cookbook. See the end of
this column for the holiday
special and ordering
instructions.
April 28 was my husband
Bill's birthday. This column
is dedicated to him. He was
my high school sweetheart,
my best friend and my
greatest supporter. Our
anniversary was April 14.
He died on May 27, 2004,
nine months after an
automobile accident that
changed his life.
Bill was obsessive about
making Italian bread, and
finally, after 5,000 tries (he
always kept changing
things), his bread was
amazing. He would smile
and say, "It takes a Dane to
make good Italian bread!"
Yes, Bill was Danish, and I
am of Italian descent.
Nothing would give him a
greater kick than making
that statement.
For holidays, when the
kids were all coming, he
would have his bread and
sausage bread on the
counter waiting, fragrant
and warm from the oven.
Hugs and kisses were
quick then it was straight to
the bread. He thrived on the
"Oh, dad, oh, grandpop,
this bread is wonderful."
When Keith Powell, my
younger son's friend since
high school, was here doing
some home alterations for
me, he started talking about
dad. When you're an
"adopted" kid, and you
work for me, I not only pay
you, I also feed you. While
we were eating his favorite,
spaghetti and meatballs, he
started raving about dad's


sausage bread. I remember
him saying, "Dad, make
these for me. I'll give you
$10 a loaf."
Enjoy. See you next week.

DAD'S ITALIAN
BREAD (NIB)
Makes two large or
three regular loaves
To make this delicious
Italian bread, all you need is
a food processor. Be sure to
preheat oven for at least 20
minutes. An oven ther-
mometer is a must to assure
proper temperature.
3 1/2 cups "Better for
Bread" flour
2 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 packet rapid rise yeast
1/3 cup warm water
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon honey
Scant cup of ice water
Crisco for greasing
Egg wash, (1 egg white
beaten with 1 tablespoon
cold water)
Sesame or poppy seeds,
optional
Single-edge razor blade
Cold water in a spray
bottle
Place flour and salt in
processor and process until
mixed. In a small jar, place
warm water, yeast and
sugar. Cover and shake to
blend. Uncover jar. Let sit
until it foams, 5-10 minutes.
Using the handle of a


Brush all over with egg
wash and sprinkle with
seeds. Using razor blade,
make diagonal slits in top of
loaves. Let rise (uncovered
in a warm area) until 3-
times its size. Bake in a
preheated 450-degree oven
for 10 minutes.
Spray loaves with water.
Lower oven temperature to
300 degrees and bake for 10
minutes or until bread is
golden brown.

DAD'S SAUSAGE
BREAD (NIB)
1 pound Italian sausage,
sweet or hot
3 large cloves garlic, finely
chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup canned tomato
sauce
Remove sausage from
casing, break up, and as it
starts browning in
saucepan, add garlic. Cook
for a few minutes turning
often.
Add tomato sauce, salt
and pepper. Let simmer for
5 minutes. Cool slightly.
Prepare bread as in recipe
for Italian bread. When the
dough is ready for the pan,

encourage the actors to speak
about their lives and he's
auditioning them at the same
time. He must be gentle
enough to make them open
up."
While Zach is the show's
center, each of the cast
members has a story to tell.
"All of the actors are on
stage at the same time," Ms.
Jones said. "All of them have
their moment to shine as
they tell their life story in
song, dance or brilliant
monologues. Bobby John-
ston has a monologue that's
three pages. It takes enor-
mous focus and discipline to
memorize."
Ms. Jones is particularly
excited that choreographer
Rita Jenkins-Gaynes is using


the original Michael Bennett
choreography.
'"A lot of these kids have
done musical theater, but not
all of them have been
dancing for that long," she
said. "They are amazing
doing the original choreogra-
phy and we're so proud of
them."
While the original show on
Broadway had performers
ages 19-24, with a few older
than that, the StarStruck
performers are younger than
the Broadway cast. Still, Ms.
Jones believes the show
speaks to them.
"They're talking about
themselves, their relation-
ships with their parents, their
huge, overwhelming sense of
insecurity," she said. "They


feel they're never good
enough. It's exactly how
teenagers feel all the time;
will some one love me, like
me, accept me? It's great that
they get to tap into these
feelings."
'A Chorus Line" will be
presented by StarStruck


Performing Arts Center at the
Lyric Theatre, 59 S.W. Flagler
Avenue, Stuart, from May 2-4.
Performances are at 7 p.m. on
May 2-3 and at 2 p.m. on May
3-4. Tickets are $23;, call the

The most powerful law in the universe


A at is the most
Powerful law in the
WV universe? The law of
attraction, of course. We have
heard this before, but it's
always good to hear it again.
What we sow we reap. Why
is this so? Because the
universe and everything in it
is in constant motion and
vibration. The universe sees
to it that every thought we
think and every desire we feel
is searching for another like
itself to bond with.
When we turn on our radio
or TV we set the receiver to a
particular frequency or
vibration. It searches for a
corresponding signal from
the broadcasting tower that
matches its' setting. They
must be the same. This is a
great example of the law of
attraction.
So it is in life, when we
create causes in our minds
and hearts that we believe we
are worthy of receiving, we
create harmony within our
own spirit, which sends the
request out to the power of
the universal energy.
We ask the spirit to match
the vibrations and bring us
the created physical reality of
what we desire. The main key

to success is that we have to
ask the universe to bring us
through the law of attraction
the thing we want.
We sow the seeds in a
garden, water them, cover
them up and surrender them.
It has been proven time and
again, if we ask the universe
to bless the seeds, a larger
harvest happens. Ask and we
shall receive.
Some people have a hard
time with asking. When we
make the universe our best
friend, its greatest desire is to
bless us and bring a bountiful
harvest. There is no lack in
spirit. Lack comes from fear,
doubt, indecision or pride in
the mind.
The application of these
fundamental principles of
attraction and manifestation
have everything to do with
our freedom, abundance and
joy in life. It has little to do
with education, experience,
philosophy or privilege. There
are scores of stories of people
who started life with great
hardships and rose to great
heights through the use of the
law of attraction. Abraham
Lincoln is just one who comes
to mind.
Whatever we give our
thoughts to create a vibration,
that goes into the universal
energy. The universe then
wants to create the physical
form and bring it to reality. Is
there something you want
and do not presently have?

Denny Rinaldi of Martin County helped lead the Tigers to
a berth in the state championship with a three-set win in
the Region 7-3A final.


SLocal brothers serve

up love of tennis


said. "In doubles, Scott and I
were the No. 2 seed, so we
went in all pumped up. We
played really well."
Rinaldi's win over'Carter in
the final also punched his
ticket to the state tourna-
ment, the senior's third trip
overall, but first individually.
The accomplishment is even
more impressive, consider-
ing the fact that this season
was Rinaldi's first at the No. 1
position after dominating
last year at No. 2.
S "It's a big jump," Rinaldi
said. "I had a lot of good
matches at No. 1. Even the
ones I lost were really close."
Tigers' coach Skip Morgan
has been pleased with Rinal-
di's progress, especially since
first beginning with the team.
"He started at No. 5 as a
freshman," Morgan said. "He's
a very aggressive player. He's
never out of a match. In all his
losses, he's been battling.
"He's the leader of the
team."
Rinaldi also came up big in
the Region 4-3A semifinal,
pitching a shutout 6-0, 6-0 in
helping the Tigers advance to
its second consecutive
regional final with a 7-0 victo-
ry over Titusville.
In the Region 7-3A final,
Rinaldi also helped pace Mar-
tin County's 4-3 win over
Satellite with, a scintilating
come-from-behind 6-3, 5-7,
6-4 win.
"Everybody on the team is
doing really well," Rinaldi
said. "Going to states is the
biggest thing that you can do."
While Denny's high school
career is coming to a close,
Mike will debut at Martin
County in the fall. The Hidden
Oaks Middle School student
knows it will be a challenge,
but has the added insight
from watching his brother
compete to help him transi-
tion to the next level.
"I kind of know what it's
like," Mike said. "I've been to a
bunch of his (Denny's)
matches. I know how they
play."
Denny has also learned
about the game from being an
onlooker at Mike's matches as
well.
"I like watching him a lot,"
Denny said. "He's so good at
competing. He plays at a high
level. I'm really proud of him."
Despite the duo's obvious
passion for the game, surpris-
ingly they rarely share the
same court.
"We love watching each
other, but we don't really hit
with each other," Denny said.
"Everyone asks us, who wins
when we play?
"I don't think we've ever
played each other. Of course, I
say I would win and he would
say he would win."


PALM CITY -When talk-
ing to Mike and Denny Rinal-
di, while the differences
between the two siblings are
apparent, one characteristic
of the two is just as obvious.
Winning.
Both are playing the best
tennis of their young careers,
with Mike winning a presti-
gious national junior's tour-
nament and Denny helping
the Martin County squad to a
district championship.
Recently, Mike traveled to
California to play in the 14-
and-under division of the
Easter Bowl, USTA National
Spring Championship in
Rancho Mirage. Going in as
the top seed, the 14-year-old
was confident he could take
home the crown.
"It was my last 14(-and-
under) tournament so I
wanted to win it," Mike said.
"I was excited as I was play-
ing it.
'After I won the semifinals,
6-1, 6-3, I was pretty confi-
dent I was going to win the
final."
In the championship, Mike
took on John Richmond of
Pawleys Island, S.C., in his
seventh match of the tourna-
ment and had little trouble,
winning 6-3, 6-2. The victory
put Rinaldi in elite company,
as he joins the likes of John
McEnroe and Aaron Krick-
stein as former winners of
the 14-and-under competi-
tion at the Easter Bowl.
Rinaldi also joins his aunt
- former professional
women's player Kathy Rinal-
di Stunkel as area players
who won such a prominent
event.
"She (Stunkel) was an
influence for me to play,"
Rinaldi said.
As Mike was dazzling the
onlookers out West, Denny
was helping the Tigers take
care of business back home.
Playing in the District 14-3A
tournament, Rinaldi Mar-
tin County's No. 1 player -
led the squad to the final
where it played the likes of
Sebastian River and Okee-
chobee.
The Tigers and Rinaldi
proved up to the task at
hand, defeating their oppo-
nents in every match but
one, while edging out the
Sharks for a 20-10 victory.
The 18-year-old defeated
Daniel Carter 6-1, 6-2 in the
singles' final and teamed up
with Scott Steger to take the
doubles' crown as well, out-
lasting Carter and Erik
Majcher, 6-1, 7-5.
The win gave Martin
County its sixth district title
in a row.
"It was awesome," Rinaldi

Winning has always been


on agenda for Fire's Forte


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
In school, getting a zero
meant some long, lonely
nights with a textbook.
In Shawn Forte's class-
room, it's the number for
which he strives for.
The Fort Pierce Fire
defensive back has taught
a lot of opposing wide
receivers some very valu-
able lessons on the foot-
ball field. Perhaps the
most useful has been, look
elsewhere if you want to
score.
That's because in four
seasons, Forte hasn't
allowed a touchdown.
"He's great," Fire co-
owner Kurt Holden said.
"In the very first tryout, we
did a vertical leap test and
he had a 36-inch vertical
leap.
"I know that he does
more than that now. He's
talented."
From that inaugural sea-
son until now, Forte has
helped turn the Fire's
defensive unit into one of
the league's best. Ironical-
ly, Forte was originally
slated to play on the oppo-
site side of the ball.

"My first year with the
Fire, at the beginning of
the year, I played wide
receiver," Forte said. "We
had a bunch of good wide
receivers, so I moved to
defensive back to make the
team better."
Throughout the Fire's
first three seasons, Forte's
defensive prowess helped
turn many games around,
as well as helping to put
some in' the win column.
Last season, with the Fire
in danger of going 0-2, it
was Forte's interception of
quarterback Jamaul O'
Bryant late in the game
that preserved Fort Pierce's
21-20 come-from behind
win over the Treasure
Coast Pirates.
Unfortunately, from
there the Fire had a roller
coaster campaign, finish-
ing 7-6 after losing 34-0 to
the Miami Bulls in the
playoffs.
Despite the loss, Forte
felt, as did many of his
teammates, that the team
was headed in the right
direction.
"I knew that if everybody
came back we could be
good," Forte said. "Every-
body came back."

Forte's words have
proved to be prophetic, as
the Fire has dominated
from the opening whistle
this season. Fort Pierce
opened with a 24-0 thrash-
ing of the Lowell Nor'east-
ers in the Florida Bowl on
National Bowl Weekend.
After defeating the
Orlando Rage in the
Southern States League
opener, the Fire's suffocat-
ing defense was on display
again, this time limiting
the Tampa Thunder to just
six points in the 34-6
laugher.
On March 8, the Fire
again came away with an
easy victory, defeating the
Sarasota Millionaires 37-9.
"I think we have the best
defense in the nation,"
Forte said. "Also, our
offense has been putting
up points. That has made
the team much better.
"(Also), it's good coach-
ing calling all the right

Catch a fish in spite of the wind


It's still windy out there,
but the fish are just
within reach. Dolphin
catches have been great,
with fish from 15-to 50-
pounds from both of the
inlets. Boats have reported
plenty of live baits from 30-
feet out.
Dolphin bite action
started in 60-feet of water,
and they were all nice fish.
Live baits, trolled baits and
artificial baits have all
caught fish. Boats found
their fish with color lines,
rips and weed lines. There
was no need for trolling.
There must have been
plenty of fish because each
angler said he or she pulled
up on a weed line and the
fish were there.
The small king mackerel
were under the bait schools.
These fish are for the table,
not the big smokers.
There were plenty of
sailfish and those pesky
cobia were taking all the
baits in the water, but no
one has mentioned the
bonita unless asked.
Let's hope the wind didn't
blow all the fish to another


HENRY CAIMATTO
Fishing columnist


county.
Bottom anglers had an
excellent catch of muttons
and grouper once their baits
were below the amber jacks
and triggers. They also had
to deal with the bothersome
cobia.
The surf has been out of
control, big waves and the
wind have protected the
blue fish, but that is going to
change. The cool tempera-
tures will keep them around
a few more days.
I sure would like to get a
chance to cast at a few of


the bigger blue fish of the
season.
Offshore anglers reported
big schools of blues in 60-
feet of water. Maybe the
wind will put a few on the
beach.
The only pompano that
was reported were at the
Hobe Sound Beach eating
sand fleas.
Inside anglers spent more
time looking for places to get
out of the wind. The North
Fork and South Fork of the
St. Lucie River are great areas
to fish and the best part is
that the fish are getting
caught. Snook, jacks, a few
trout and reds made the list.
The root beer colored
D.O.A. TerrorEyz has been
the favored bait through
those areas.
The Indian River has been
tough with wind changing
directions, but still had some
reports of excellent trout.
The Spoil Islands north of
North Bridge is a great area
to hide and fish.
The fish have been
holding in the deeper water
because of the cooler air


Golf for Wildlife event


returns to Martin County


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

HOBE SOUND The
Treasure Coast Wildlife
Center will host its third
Golf for Wildlife Tourna-
ment at Loblolly in Hobe
Sound on Friday, May 16.
Golfers and sponsors of
the Golf for Wildlife Tour-
nament can help the
wildlife hospital's founda-
tion build a new facility
after the center's former
home was destroyed by the


2004 hurricanes.
This facility is needed to
house rescued and injured
animals and to serve as an
educational center where
the community will be able
to learn about our wildlife,
environment, and natural
habitats.
Permitting for the new
center has begun but funds
to help underwrite con-
struction expenses are still
needed.
The tournament is limit-
ed to only 18 foursomes, so


early registration is encour-
aged but no later than
Wednesday, May 14. The
day will start at 11:30 a.m.
with lunch and registra-
tion. The tournament will
tee off with a shotgun start
at 12:30 p.m. and finish
with hors d'oeuvres, cock-
tails and an awards cere-
mony at 4:30 p.m.
For sponsorship informa-
tion or to participate in

temperatures.
The bridges are the hot
spots for snook with anglers
trying their luck with Flair
Hawks for baits. Any bridge
on any evening was busy
with folks trying their luck.
The more the water gets
mixed up the more the
snooks love it.
Anglers sorted through
multiple catches and still
found it hard to get one in
the slot. Most reported
oversize fish.
Give the fish plenty of
support on its under side
and hold your breath.
Remember, when you
need a breath so does the
fish.

and Tackle Shop in Jensen

plays."
Unfortunately, the Fire's
hopes for an undefeated
season were dashed by the
St. Petersburg Sharks in
late March. Fort Pierce
played well, but the Sharks
were just a little bit better,
winning 21-16.
"We came out flat," Forte
said. "We played their
game. We didn't play our
game."
Earlier in the season,
The Fire was up to the test,
defeating the Sharks 37-33.


Unfortunately, the game
didn't count in the stand-
ings due to a lack of offi-
cials a fact that didn't sit
well with the players.
"They were the only
team lucky enough to beat
us. I hope we play them
again," Forte said.
Unfortunately, the Port
St. Lucie High School grad-
uate didn't get his wish.
Although the Fire defeated
the Sarasota Millionaires
twice earlier this season,
the Fire lost when it count-


ed most, falling 41-35 in
overtime in the semifinals.
Despite the loss the Fire -
which tallied nine victo-
ries if you count a presea-
son triumph over the East
Coast Reapers and the
"win" over the Sharks -
are primed to duplicate, if
not exceed this year's
accoInplishments.
"We have to put every-
thing together," Forte said.
"We're just trying to get to
Number One."
