Officer on scooter
makes arrest

A Stuart Police officer
patrolling East Stuart on a
Segway personal trans-
'porter arrested a man
accused of attacking a pair
of motorists.
Officer Steven Graff was
patrolling the community*
redevelopment zone Aug.
28 when he got a call
about a reported battery
on a motorist in the 900
block of Tarpon Avenue.
Two women in a car
stopped to ask a man on
the street for directions,
but they said he offered to
sell them drugs instead.
When they declined, he
reportedly reached into
the car and hit both
women, smashing a pair
of designer sunglasses in
the process.
Officer Graff arrived
shortly afterward and
arrested Aldrick James Lot,
23, 808 S.E. Spruce Ave.,
Stuart, and charged him
with burglary, battery and
criminal mischief.

Main Street status

Times are tougher for all of
us, but for those' struggling
to put food on the table or
find a job, the difficulties can
be unimaginable.
Harvest Food and Out-

too well, as they've watched
the membership in the Fortv

last year to 5,087 this July, a
34 percent increase.

The format for the ,golf
tournament is a four-mem-

There will also be door

Handily defeating Mr.
Hayes in 2004, the Hobe
Sound resident and for-
mer county engineer, has
dedicated himself to the
work of the commission
for the last eight years and
says he hasn't even


thought about looking for
a new job yet.
"This was probably
short-sighted on my part,"
he said. "The thought of
losing never occurred to
me."
His fellow commission-
er and chairman Doug
Smith barely escaped
being defeated himself,
with a 200-vote victory
over challenger Henry

STUART A small Stuart
drafting firm is now able to
compete more effectively in
the international medical
modeling field, thanks to the
help of the Business Devel-
opment Board of Martin
County.
Founded in 1994, Drafting
Designs, offers a variety of
services, including three-
dimensional, computer-
aided design, production
drawings and rapid proto-
typing.
But now the company is in
the final stages of complet-

son calls the "wotld's first
pulsatile cardiac simulation
system," a hi-tech medical

Martin County resident turns 100

Friends, family celebrate reaching the century mark


By Donald Rodrigue
Rodrigue@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY If
you're going to live to be a
100, you might as well have a
sense of humor about it.
Sunshine Mobile Manor
resident Nesta Eberle has
been characterized by her
zany sense of humor her
entire first century of 'life,
often to the chagrin of her
children, but to the delight of
the grandkids. Mrs. Eberle
wasted no time in demon-
strating that characteristic
with a reporter when asked
how she felt to be 100 years
old.
"I don'( know why God has
allowed me to live so long,"
she said. "I think he's punish-
ing me. The problem with
getting to be 100 is that all of
your friends and family are
dead."


Mrs. Eberle makes most of
her outrageous. comments
with a twinkle in her eye;.
which leads you to believe
that not everything is as it
seems. Although her hus-
band Rudolph died in 1973
and her son Bernie died
about 20 years ago, she still
has two daughters: Doris:
McNally in New Jersey and
Carol Jones, .who lives in
Estero. Then .there's her
beloved niece, Audrey
Michele, who lives in Port St.
Lucie and says Mrs. Eberle
has always been a lot of fun.
"My Aunt, Mrs. Eberle,
should have been an actress
because she loves to be the
center of attention," she said.
"I had a country and western
party and she showed up
with a pistol and a bandana
over her face, saying 'This is a
stick-up.'"
Although she doesn't com-


plain of aches and pains, Mrs.
Eberle says her favorite medi-
cine is, Jim Beam. For years,
her carport was the place to
be during happy hour, where
more than a dozen neighbors
in the park would regularly
gather. Unfortunately, many
of them have died off or
,moved away in recent years,
and her social life came to a
grinding-halt.
Mrs. Michele took her to
the local senior center, hop-
ing she could make new
friends. Mrs. Eberle called it
"davcare." said it was boring
and complained because
they did their exercises sitting
down.
"It wasn't, stimulating
enough for her," Mrs. Michele
said. "They exercise sitting
down, and she wants to be
touching toes and doing

Specialize
From page Al
ness Development Board
with enabling Drafting
Designs to become certified
for medical device design
and manufacturing by the
Organization for Standard-
ization.
The board did so by help-
ing the company attain an
Incumbent Worker Training
grant through one of its eco-
nomic development part-
ners, the, Florida Manufac-
turing Extension
Partnership. Once certified,
Drafting Designs won a
contract to design the car-
diac simulation 'system
from a Miami firm that
wanted to use it to test new
assist devices, such as
pumps.
"Through the Business
Development Board of Mar-
tin County, we acquired the
necessary tools and know-
how needed to prepare for


our penetration into the
medical product market,"
Mr. Carson said.
Once the simulator is fin-
ished, Mr. Carson hopes it
will create interest among
medical facilities and
research institutions that
may want to use it for labo-
ratory and classroom test-
ing. He shares the credit for
the device with two local
research and development
professionals, Raymond
Beja and Michael Romeo,
the owners of New Frontiers
Technology.
"What was really cool was
using CT Scan technology
to make the molds," Mr.
Carson said.,
The three men gathered
recently for a demonstra-
tion of the simulator, which
sounds just like a living and
beating heart when activat-
ed.
"The/sound you hear is
not simulation," Mr. Romeo
said. "It's actually being
generated by the heart sim-


ulator, which also regulates
the temperature at 98.6, just
like the human body."
In addition, the simulator
regulates and records
(blood) pressure, flow rate.
and rhythm, and can be
used to replicate surgical
procedures, such as
catheterization and cardiac
pump implants. When
ready for the market, the
device will sell from
$100,000 up to $300,000,
depending on customiza-
tions desired by the cus-
tomer.
"It's basically a teaching
tool that any physician can
use instead of a cadaver or
an animal," Mr. Beja said.
"You can simulate things
with it that you can't do with
a real patient."
The success with the
medical model has prompt-
ed Mr. Carson to merge
Drafting Designs with the
other two companies, as
well as form a new entity
with Mr. Beja and Mr.


Romeo, Reality Medical
Models, LLC. The merger
will call for more assembly
and showroom space, as
well as the addition of a few
new employees in the near
future.
Business Development
Board President Ron Bunch
praised the board's eco-
nomic development part-
ners, which helped make
this success stories like this
possible.
"These partnerships
make ii possible to help
companies transition from
local to global success," Mr.
Bunch said. "By connecting
them with the right training
and services, from partners
like Florida Manufacturing
Extension Partnership, we
are able to ensure that Mar-,
tin County companies have
a competitive edge."

Martin Memorial enhances security

policy in matemal-child department


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY Healthcare
providers are taking increased meas-
ures to ensure the safety and security'
of new mothers and their babies dur-
ing hospital stays.
"While Martin Memorial already
has numerous security precautions in
place to keep our patients safe, we are
taking additional steps in our efforts
to protect the safety and privacy of
families who come to our hospital for
what should be a joyous occasion,"
said Val Ruby, assistant vice president
of perioperative and maternal child


services.
Beginning Sept. 1, a limit of three
people will be allowed. to visit
patient at one time. This policy will
eliminate having a large number of
visitors on the floor, which will
enhance patients' comfort and safety,
while helping protect their privacy as
well. Also, visiting hours will be sus-
pended between 2-4 p.m., providing
mothers and babies with an opportu-
nity for much-needed rest.
To ensure safety and visitationrpoli-
cies are upheld, a Martin Memorial
Safety and Security Officer will be
positioned outside the elevators on
the first floor of the Medical Center


that lead to. the maternal-child
department. That officer will monitor
the flow of traffic to and from the
department. Family and friends will
be asked to wait in the hospital's main
lobby, cafeteria or coffee shop if they
are not one of the people visiting a
patient in her room .
This new policy coincides with ren-
ovations taking place in the maternal-
child department. Additional labor
and delivery rooms will be replacing
the current waiting area. Renovations
are expected to begin Sept. 1 and will
be completed in 10 to 12 weeks.

"Then I wandered around


on the subways of New York,"
she said. "I stayed anyplace
they would give me a cup of
coffee."
By now, you know that's not
exactly how it was. She used
the subway to get to the
homes of her various relatives
scattered across the city.

says getting remarried was
never an option.
"I never wanted to try
that again," she said. "I
made one man miserable;
I didn't want to make two
miserable."
Two years after he died
in Jersey, Mrs. Eberle
moved to Sunshine Mobile
Manor, south of Stuart, to
be near her siblings and
she has become quite the
globetrotter since then.
When she was 84, she trav-
eled to Jamaica with her
nephew Vern Swett, a for-
mer pastor of Vero Beach
Community Church, who
was taking a youth group
down to build a school.
"I had to go to show
them how to do it," she
said. "We were building a
one-room schoolhouse for
the kids, and we even had
to mix cement by hand,"
In recent years, her
daughter Carol, Mrs.
Michele and her husband
Dominic have been her
traveling companions to
San Francisco, the Grand
Canyon, the Bahamas and
to Barrow, Alaska, the
northernmost city in the
United States, where Mrs.
Eberle stuck her hand in
the Artic Ocean.
She's even been to Eng-
land with the Micheles,

but Mrs. Eberle still has

"I think my family is
lousy," she said. "They
haven't taken me to Hawaii
yet."
Mrs. Eberle still loves to
dance and has been known
to outlast partners half her
age.' Mrs. Michele called
recently to check up on her
while she was eating in a
restaurant with her daugh-
,ter in southwest Florida.
"What's Aunt Nest
doing," she asked.
"She's drinking ver-
mouth and dancing with
every man at the bar," Ms.
Jones replied.
Family members and
friends,, came from New
Jersey and all over:Florida
to help Mrs.'Eberle cele-
brate her century mile-
stone at the Savannah
Club in Port St. Lucie on
Aug. 30. As usual, when the
DJ began spinning the
tunes, Nesta was one of the
first ones out on the dance

status, East Stuart will be
eligible for financial aid

area, which was first
established in 1913 and

African-American' life in
Stuart.
The boundaries of East
Stuart roughly lie in an
area bounded by Palm

and Martin Luther King
Boulevard. The partner-
ship hopes to also revital-

East. Stuart supported up

Hobe Sound Bible
College vandalized

Someone entered
through a window at the
back of the Hobe Sound
Bible College early on Aug.
27 and caused havoc in
several offices.
A college employee
reporting for duty about
6:30 a.m.' found his com-
puter tossed on the floor
and doused with a soft
drink, and the contents of
his desk scattered about
the office. Several other
offices had also been van-
dalized and most of their
computers destroyed in a
similar manner. The only
items missing appeared to
be snack foods and an
iPod from a briefcase.
Security officers say they
last walked through the
building before midnight
on Aug. 26 but saw no
signs of an intruder.

Real vs. Fake Amber
Fake amber is not hard to
make. It can be made from
heating colored plastic, using
copal(not 'mature amber') or
other modern. polymers.
Amber that looks 'too perfect'
probably is. Quality specimens
run into the thousands of dol-
lars. It is not particularly easy
to identify.fake amber from real
amber. So, how does one
determine if you have a real
sample of amber?
First, one must understand
that amber is the fossilized
resin from ancient trees. In the
Dominican Republic, the tree is
Hyemnaea (a leguminous tree).
Most modern legumes are
smaller plants that have nod-
ules in the roots that contain
bacteria that put nitrogen back
into the'soil;- peas and clover
are legumes. Modern day
legume trees are common in
South America. In the Baltic
area, millions of years ago,
either pine trees or eucalyptus
(gum) trees probably produced
the resin that turned into
amber. One fairly good way to
determine fake amber is the
'hot point test'. This is where a
fine point of a very hot needle is
put in the amber. 'Real amber
has a piney smell and fake
amber can have an. electrical,
plastic or sweet smell to it.
Another test is the acetone test.
Copal is slightly soluble in ace-
tone, so the surface will get
sticky. Lastly, there are some
pieces of .amber in gem stores
with 'spangles' in it. This small
disk shaped inclusion is the
result of heating amber in rape-
seed oil. So, if you are after a
beautiful piece of amber, the
spangles are great, but don't be
fooled into believing that they
are a result of a natural occur-
rence.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2008 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(772) 465-5504
or e-mail news@hometownnewsoLcom.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


Fed up with propaganda

Is everyone as disgusted and fed up with all the political
propaganda we have been subjected to for the last several
months?
Unsolicited phone calls all hours of the day and night.
By the way political and charitable phone solicitations
can't be blocked on a do not call list and no junk mail lists.
I hang up as soon as the recording starts or let the answer-
ing machine screen my incoming calls as well as take the
junk political mail directly to the recycle bin in the garage.
Political pundits listen up. People don't want the calls or
the mail and it has a negative effect instead of a positive
influence so save your campaign funds for something
more productive. I read the newspapers, including editori-
al comments and letters from subscribers to form my opin-
ions as well as listen to the candidates themselves.

A reason for no rants

A comment in this week's Rants and Raves said there
weren't a lot of contributions to the section anymore. I've
written about outrageous bills from utilities for years, and
the only thing that has happened has been that my bill has
gone up. So I stopped sending them in:

Living next to a dump

I have a neighbor that has four unregistered cars on his
property that he fills with junk. For me it's like living next to
a dump. Why won't code enforcement do something about
it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can
the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it
looks like a dump?

What's e-mail?

Regarding computers: some of us didn't go to school long
enough to hunt and peck, never mind have e-mail, whatev-
er that is.

Don't be greedy

First of all, I give to charities. I give what I can. I can't give
a large amount, but I try to give to different ones. One thing
I don't like about some organizations is that they say
"Thank you for your $25 donation" before I have a chance
to offer them anything. I never give them that much
mopey, but I think they.try to trick you. I don't know why
they do it. I.can't give that much, but Itry to give what I can.
I think that's unfair of them. They might end up with noth-
mg.

Tipping is getting out of hand

Many years ago, "tipping" used to be reserved mainly for
sit-down restaurants. Now, it's everywhere; nail salons,
hair salons, dog groomers, bars, and donut shops, just to
name a few. Now restaurants want you to tipfor just
preparing your food for takeout.

CIRCULATION AUDIT BY

VERIFICATION


Getting the care giving help you need


ast week I wrote
about my realization
that care giving was
becoming too hard for me
to go it alone. This week,
I'll tell you about how I
found help.
The morning began with
ants in the kitchen. I
found Roy trying out
insecticide on them and
the cats sniffing around. I
didn't know who to grab
first. It was Roy's day to go
to the adult day center run
by the Council on Aging of
Martin County, and he
had to wash and have
breakfast and be ready by
8 a.m., when the'C'oimnu-
nity Coach would arrive.
Somehow I got the cats
locked up so they wouldn't
walk in the irisecticide, got
Roy's hands washed, so he
could eat, dealt with the
ants and got Roy on the
bus. Then I sat down and
cried and cried as I hadn't
in a very long time.
When I stopped, I was in
a daze and I wasn't sure
what to do. I called the day
center, because they know
Roy and I told them that I
didn't know if I could
continue to care for him at
home, that I was begin-
ning to fold. Miriam at the


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


center asked me what I
needed. I said I couldn't
take care of everything
anymore and within an
hour, she'd arranged for.
some additional hours of
home help to help with
the cleaning.
Pat comes to our hqme
and we laugh and together
we are putting things away
and clearing away the
-clutter. It's a small way for
me to take control of a
situation where I have so
little control. I have
learned that this is consid-
ered a bona fide coping
mechanism when you try
to make sense out of a life
that has little in your
control.
I have also begun going
for grief counseling at
Treasure Coast Hospice.
Perhaps grief counseling
seems odd in advance of a
loss. But with a disease
like Alzheimer's, you are
losing your loved one in
inches.
Roy is not the same


person he was, and I
mourn that loss and feel
the pain and anger anyone
does when they are
grieving. Jo Ellen at
Hospice is helping me
cope with the feelings of
grieving for someone,
while still having to care
ifor them.
Laura Zel of Just-Check-
ing, our caregiver coun-
selor since Roy was
diagnosed, continues to
give moral and practical
support. It helps to have
someone who knows us so
well, as she is able to talk
honestly about the
changes in Roy and to ..
reassure me that I'm doing
a good job. I always think I
should be doing better.
She's also great to talk to
on the phone when I need
a pep talk.
Roy has begun falling
again. A recent fall result-
ed in 21 stitches in his
arm. In one banner week,
he had to have stitches
two days in a row. He'd'
also begun falling out of
bed, and on one memo-
rable night when he fell
out and cut his face, I got
to bandage his ear so that
he looked like van Gogh. I
told Michelle, our case,


manager, and she found a
bed rail that someone had
donated to the council.
She also signed us up for
an alert button that Roy
can wear when I am not
with him. The costs of
these services are based
on income.
I have learned there are
people who want to help.
and have services avail-
able. They can't find you,
however; you usually have
to make the first contact. I
now know that asking for
help is not an admission
of weakness, but of
strength, and I urge .,,
'"anyone who is over- .
whelmhned vi the burden
of care giving to seek help.
Look to thp Web site of
the illness your loved one
has, call the local Council
on Aging, or call 211 if
your-area has that help .
available. Be persistent. It
may-take a lew calls to
reach the right person, but
you will find someone to
talk to.

The promised land of helping others to grow


Te-mailed my friend and
-publisher of Hometown
News, Steve Erlanger,
last week, and told him
that he had provided for
me, his wonderful staff, his
readers, advertisers,
clients, family and friends
an opportunity of a
lifetime.
I consider it such an
honor to be part of such a
'great expanding team of
heartfelt souls who care so
much about themselves,
others and the individuals
in the "villages" and
"hometowns" around
them.
We alf came from
villages you know, which'
* were crossroads where,
others came to trade, live
and prosper. Towns and
cities were born as the
villages grew.
Hometown News was
created byVernon Smith
and Steve Erlanger with
the same intent: get back
to basics. Let's get the
village feel. Get to know
each other and work in
harmony. Stop being at
war with your own people.
You can't survive. Make
peace. Help, feed and love
each other. We are all
human on earth. Life is
sacred and valuable.
Protect life, don't destroy
it.


SPIRIT
GUIDE
JAMES TUCKER


How do we do this? First
you have to start and
continue using your own
special gifts and talents.
This will move you to the
promised land of your
soul's true purpose.
Everyone in the world, no
matter what their level of
edUcation, experience, '
privilege or wealth has this
sacred heritage living
within their soul.
How do we get there? -It
is all about feeling it,
turning within and
practice. If you want to
excel at any craft, hobby or
talent, practice is the key.
When we do well others
applaud. We all need a pat
on the back at times.
Humans are social animals
by nature. We want to live
in families, tribes and
villages. Isolated people
living as hermits or
abandoned souls don't
grow. We need each other.
Emily Lou Harris, the
great bluegrass singer,
-recorded a song a number
of years ago titled, "Love is
a Rose." It went like this:
"Love is a rose, but you,


better not pick it; it only
grows when it's on the
vine." Life is the same.
Stop trying to pick other
people's roses.
Help others around you
to keep growing;. It's better
to give a loved one-a
potted rose than a cut one
for the same reason.
Never pick the "roses"
(loved ones) in your:
garden of life. Feed them,
protect them, affirm them,
love them, share them and
help them to live, grow,
prosper, multiply and find
true joy for all their days.
Then they help you the
same. This is the promised
land. It's why we are here.
It's what makes us truly
happy. Take care of
yourself, then share with
others. This is what you
seek if you are coming
from the heart.
Move away from the
outer-worldly, ego-based
life. Live by your spirit,
heart and instincts. You
have it in you. You were
born with greatness in
your soul. You are a genius.
Finding it is "the promised
land" of your true self,
destiny and talent, given
you at birth. It lives inside
you. No matter what
support you had from your

Join in the hunt for trash Sept. 20


A s summer slowly inch-
es toward cooler
S weather, my husband
and I cannot wait to head out
canoeing, a pastime where,
unlike bills, house chores and
even driving in the car, we
seem to work together effort-
lessly as we glide over smooth
creeks and rivers in Martin
County.
Yet while I look forward to
finding the nooks and cran-
nies in Florida mangroves, I
dread the discovery of
unsightly articles of trash we
inevitably find. It's become so
commonplace that it dimin-
ishes our enjoyment of our
cherished and beautiful
rivers. Against my husband's
halfhearted complaints, I feel
compelled to bring two large
trash bags with us so he can
reach his long arms into the
water to retrieve all sorts of*
marine debris.
Fortunately, we recently
discovered there are others
just like us Scout troops
and school groups, business-
es, senior citizens, and civic
clubs all over Martin County


Rants
From page A6
Restaurants and other businesses
should pay their waiters and waitress-
es a salary. It's not the patron's respon-
sibility to support your employees.
"Tipping" has really gotten out of
hand. I have never been in favor of
tipping someone for providing good
service. A part of customer service is
providing excellent service to cus-
tomers who might otherwise patron-
ize a competitor. That's the American
way!
An order is placed, I prepare your
food, now you not only owe me for the
food, but you owe me for handing it to
you and being polite. There are many
people in jobs who don't and can't ask
or mandate that you tip them.
If anyone should be owed a substan-
tial tip, it's schoolteachers. They're
underpaid and overworked. I notice
parents don't even give their children's
teacher a gift at holiday time anymore.
Contrary to what society chooses to
think, teaching is a job just like any
other job. Mortgages have to be paid, if
the\ can afford one. Car dealers4lps

KEEP
MARTIN
BEAUTIFUL

JENWHITINC

- doing exactly the same
thing.
In fact, there will be over
1,500 people participating in
Martin County's Internation-
al Coastal Cleanup scheduled
for Saturday, Sept. 20. And
when you add that to what
will be going on in the rest of
the world, the numbers are
quite impressive. More than.
400,000 people from over 90
nations will also be cleaning
shores, rivers, beaches and
other waterways across the
globe on the very same day.
In addition to this being a
global event and a great
example of "think globally act
locally", the most unique
aspect of this particular
cleanup is that the details
about the tons and tons of
trash that will be collected
worldwide will be carefully


documented. Everyone who
participates tallies up the
type and number of items of
trash collected. The data is
collected by the nonprofit
Ocean Conservancy and they
share the information with
leaders across the world to
spread awareness and help
create better methods of
waste reduction and recy-
cling, and, of course, litter
prevention.
This year I'm involved with
Keep Martin Beautiful's
organization of the Coastal
Cleanup in Martin County
and I've had the chance to
see first-hand how our future
generations are being posi-
tively influenced to be stew-
ards of our environment.
Boy Scouts Troop 81 leader
Bill Bryan for example, told
me he and his boys are pretty
"ramped up" about getting
out there, knowing 400,000
people will be side by side
with them: "We're all doing
this in the hopes of changing
the way the face of the earth
looks tomorrow. The awe-
some part is feeling like you


don't hand out free cars to teachers, and
utility companies don't discount their
utilities. Neither do grocery stores or
clothing stores the last time I checked.
More people are cooking at home
rather than gong out to eat. Employers,
pay your employees a salary. If you can't
afford to, then find another way to
make a living. Here's a tip, play the lot-
tery, the same as many of us do, or find
another job where you don't have to rely
on tips, It's highway robbery.

Autism is an excuse
This is regarding autistic children. I'm
tired of listening to these parents com-
plain about these kids when all they are
missing is good parenting. They are
looking for some reason as to why they
can't take care of their kids. If you can't
take of your kids, stop blaming it on
some stupid disease that doesn't even
exist. Get a grip and teach your kids
from the beginning, not the end.

Too many flaws in Medicaid
This is regarding Medicaid. My wife
and I just got on Medicaid.We are taking
care of ot three grande children. I am ini in


are part of something bigger.
And I think it's a great experi-
ence for the boys they're
investing in their own
future."
Since the coordination of
so many volunteers is quite a
process, volunteers receive
their supplies ahead of time,
as well as a free t-shirt while
supplies last. For that reason
registration is very impor-
tant, as well as a couple of
handy tips: comfortable
clothing and closed-toed
shoes are a must, and many
volunteers like to bring their
own sturdy work gloves.
With the comradery of fel-
low citizens around me, Sept.
20 will find me with gloves
and bag in hand, my back
sore from bending over, hair
sticking to my face in the
heat.
Frankly, I cannot wait.

ter; contact Keep Martin
Beautiful at (772) 781-1222 or

program called "medically needy," which
, means I have to have medical bills that
exceed $750 a month for me to be eligi-
ble. I am not currently working, and
because I am sick. I unable to get a Med-.
icaid number because my bills are not
yet over $750 a month, but the bills I
have can't be taken care of because they
don't meet the criteria. My wife makes
$1,400 a month, and our expenses are
more than $1,600. I don't know where to
turn.

More regarding septic tanks'

.This is a follow up to the rant regarding
septic tanks. I want to caution everyone
who has a problem to get at least two
opinions, maybe even three. There is no
charge for estimates and you'll be able to
make an informed decision about what
has to be done, price, etc. I foolishly did-
n't heed my own advice, and called a
company that professed to be honest
and reliable. I trusted their opinion and
it cost me hundreds of dollars. I found
out after the emergency that what was
fixed was not necessarily the problem.
One other suggestion, if told a part has to
,be replaced, make sure they leave the
iem the\ are replacing. ,

your deposits are federally

U.S. government agency.
The FDIC is backed by the
full faith and credit of the
U.S. government. Not one
penny of insured savings has
ever been lost by a customer
of a federally insured bank.
Each account holder's funds
are insured up to allowable
limits, which are at least
$100,000; and retirement
accounts such as individual
retirement accounts and
Keoghs are separately
insured up to $250,000.
If your savings exceed the
amount covered by the basic*
insurance limits, you can
extend your FDIC coverage
by establishing different
types of accounts. The FDIC'
insures accounts in different
ownership, categories
separately.You can get up to
$100,000 of additional
insurance for your interest in
accounts owned jointly with
someone else and for trust
accounts of which you are a
beneficiary. Check with your

Don't let bear market

devour your

investment strategy


If you're an investor,
you've probably been
less than ecstatic lately
when you open the
newspaper and see what's
happening in the stock
market.
From October 2007 to
the end of June, the Dow
Jones Industrial Average
fell about 20 percent. And
stock prices continued to
slide during the first two
weeks of July. Are we in a
"bear market"? And, if so,
how should you respond
First of all, you might
want to know a little bit
about the nature of bear
markets. By one common-
ly used definition, a bear
market occurs when stock
prices have declined by 20
percent or more. Bear
markets last, on average,
about 14 months; a two-
year bear market is
considered to be on the
long side. Generally
speaking, a bear market is
triggered by unexpected
events or economic
conditions, which, in 2007
'and 2008, include the
credit crunch and soaring
oil prices. And bear
markets can end as
quickly, and as unpre-
dictably, as they began..
SYou may well feel the
need to do something.
Here's an idea: Why not
approach a bear market
the same way you would
an actual bear? Consider
these suggestions:



u1


FINANCIAL
COLUMNIST
JAMIE
CHAPOGAS


Stay calm. If you were
to ever encounter a real
bear, you'd need to avoid
panicking. And the same
is true with a bear market.
You can't control stock
prices, but you can control
your reaction to them. If
you remain calm and
survey your individual
situation with an under-
standing of what's hap-
pening in the broader
market, you'll be likely to
make rational decisions.
Make no sudden
moves. When facing a
bear, you can't make
sudden moves. And when
you're in the midst of a
bear market, you also
want to avoid reacting too
quickly. If you've built a
portfolio of quality
investments that are
suitable for your goals,
risk tolerance and time
horizon, stay the course
and stick with your long-
term strategy- even
during a bear market.
Don't try to "outrun"-a
bear. Just as bears are
faster than you are, the
movements of the stock
market are typically too
quick for most people -

Olympics help open China to world


n 2000, when the
Olympics Games were
held in Sydney, it
opened Australia to the
world.
In the ensuing months
(and years) many flocked
to experience Australia
and its many amazing
sights. They wanted to see
not only cultural Sydney
but to experience the
outback, see the koalas
and kangaroos in their
own environment and
witness the magic of the
Aboriginal people. I expect
the same will happen with
China.
The Olympics opened
China up to the world,. '
Even with its many contro-
versies, there is an
unprecedented'focus on'
China that is not only
related to the Olympic
games. The history, culture
and incredible recent
growth have been of great
interest to so many.
China has been a power
not totally understood by
the western world. With

MARTIN COUNTY -
David Smythe gave a gift
of $500,000 to the wound
medicine center as a ges-
ture of gratitude to the


staff who helped him
through the healing
process.
"The people over there,
I don't know if you'll find
people like them any-
where," said Mr. Smythe
"You could see that they


just wanted to help peo-
ple. They wanted to take
care of you and they did."
Mr. Smythe began
receiving treatment at the
wound medicine center in
October 2007, going three
times a week. The center


- which has been named
a national award winner
as a wound medicine cen-
ter of excellence -: pro-
vides a multi-disciplinary
program of treatment and
support for the manage-
ment of acute and chronic
wounds. Since problem
wounds are often associ-
ated with underlying
medical conditions, the
program is designed to
integrate wound care with
ongoing health care.
This fall the center will
move from its current
location at 509 Riverside
Drive in Stuart to a larger
office at 314 Hospital Ave.
It will also come with a
new, name the David L.

From page A9
which I have passed on to
other clients who were
considering a trip to
China.
Imperial Jewels of China
(from 2008, Viking River
cruise itinerary; 2009 may
have some changes) A 12-
day cruise/tour Beijing to
Shanghai includes 12
guided tours and a six-day
Yangtze River cruise in a
balcony stateroom.
Your visit will include a
visit to Tiananmen Square
and a visit to the Forbid-
den City. Nearly 800
buildings and 9,999 rooms
make up this amazing site
with elegant palaces,
pavilions, courtyards and
gardens.
The Summer Palace is a
700-acre complex of
gardens and elegant
buildings. Its Chinese
name means garden of
nurtured harmony. Enjoy
an evening of traditional
Peking duck dinner and a
performance by the
Peking Opera.
Traveling the road to
Badaling Hills to see one
of the most impressive
and best-preserved
sections of the Great Wall
of China is a tour in itself.
Walk along the winding
pathways and marvel at
the incredible views.
Visit the Sacred Way, a


tree-lined avenue, guard-
ed by massive sculptures
of elephants, lions and
camels, as you make your
way back to Beijing.
Your tour of old Beijing
will include touring the
narrow streets in a rick-
shaw. Discover the sights
and sounds of traditional
Chinese life and visit a silk
carpet workshop for a
demonstration of this
ancient art.
A visit to Xi'an, the
home of more than 6,000
terracotta warriors who
were buried with Emperor
Qin Shi Huang more than
2,000 years ago, is some-
thing you cannot miss. It
issa true wonder.to see.
Chongqing is where you
board ypur river cruise
vessel for an unforgettable
cruise along the Yangtze.
Your cruise will wind its
way through a spectacular
series of limestone ridges
known as the Three
Gorges. You will cruise
through Qutang Gorge,


the most popular and
spectacular of the three
large gorges. You will
board a smaller vessel for
an excursion through the
Lesser Three Gorges.
Sail through these
remarkable canyons,
flanked by towering cliffs,
all the while witnessing
the ancient sites, includ-
ing the hanging coffins of
the Ba people and the
ancient plank road carved
into the cliff side.
One excursion is a tour
of the Three Gorges Dam
where you learn about
this immense engineering
masterpiece and what it
means to the Chinese
people. Once back on
board, the vessel sails
through the five-stage
locks of the Three Gorges
Dam on your way to
Yueyang, where you will
visit an elementary school
sponsored by Viking River
and enjoy a performance.
You disembark in
Wuhan where you will


have a visit to the muse-
um before flying to
Shanghai, where you will
stay two nights and
experience this modern
metropolis that is mixed
with the old city.
It does not matter how
you see China, it has such
incredible sites and
history. Now with all of


the new Olympic venues,
you will see just how far it
has come into the 21st
century.

Martin County Sheriff
Robert Crowder, who's
held the office for four
terms, is closer to wearing
the hat for at least four
more years after defeating
retired state trooper B.R.


Johnson, who received less
than 20 percent of the

District grant writer Ruth
"Ski" Pietruszewski was


the top vote-getter of a
group of four Republican
candidates vying for the
office of tax collector being
vacated by Larry O'Steen,

In the race for Florida's
16th Congressional Dis-
trict, Tequesta attorney
Tom Rooney defeated State
Rep. Gayle Harrell of Stuart
and investment banker Hal
Valeche of Palm Beach Gar-
dens for the right to chal-
lenge Rep. Tim Mahoney
this fall. Rep. Mahoney has
already challenged Mr.
Rooney to a series of
debates in what is expected
to be a hotly contested
race.
Martin County Chairman
Doug Smith said he had a
"sense" that it was going to
be a tough primary battle
and that both he and Com-
missioner Weberman
could have been- casual-
ties.
"It's very difficult to do a
third term,;" he said. "I was
very proud of the way my
supporters came and
worked very hard to get me
through the primary."
Commissioner Smith
says the economy will still
be the topic on every
voter's mind this fall.
"They're going to be
looking for leadership to
help our businesses to
expand," he said. "I get the
sense that the next genera-
tion needs to be part of
Martin County, and they
want to be able to carve
out their piece of paradise
as they seeit."
Commissioner Weber-
man, on the other hand, is
polishing up his resume
and say's he's hanging up
his political hat for good.
One of his most memo-
rable quotes over the years
was "I haven't had a date
since Truman was presi-
dent-." Now, without the
political pressure, he's
hoping to change that too.
"I was just leery about
bringing a girlfriend into
this scenario," he said.

By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
Ten years ago, Hobe Sound resi-
dent Marianne Berkes, a librarian,
never dreamed that one day she'd
read her own books to children.
Her seventh and latest book, a
sing-along counting book entitled
"Over in the Arctic, Where the Cold
Wind Blows," is scheduled for
release on Sept. 27 and joins books
about the planets, marshes, rain-
forests and oceans, as .well as' an
upcoming book about animal
migrations. ;
Ms. Berkes, a New York native
who also taught and performed in
children's theater spoke recently
about her latest career and about
why nature is such an important
topic to her.
"I was a children's librarian in
Jupiter, and never did I think that I
would turn the page and become an
author," she said. "My first book,
"Marsh Morning," came out in 2000
and featured the sounds of the
pond. I retired in 2002 with another
book in the works, "Seashells by the
Seashore." I saw shells on Sanibel
Island and I decided to write about
the different sizes and shapes, like
people." .
Her book about the Arctic fea-
tures 10 Arctic species, but the illus-
trator, Jill Dubin, hid 10 additional
species throughout the book for
children to find. Ms. Berkes identi-
fies them in theback of the book, in
keeping with her desire to inspire
children to learn more .about the
world in which they live.
"I want children to discover
something each time they read the
book," she said. "I want them to
treasure reading and I want them to


get out and play and hear the
sounds and appreciate nature."
Ms. Berkes' :book about the-plan-
ets, "Going Around the Sun; Some
Planetary Fun," was released in
March 2008 and is illustrated by
Stuart resident Janeeh Mason, a
noted artist and illustrator. Ms.
Berkes usually does not choose the
illustrator, but a planetary event
changed that.
"Pluto had just been demoted as
a planet and I mention that," said
Ms. Berkes. "A lot of books became
obsolete and the publisher wanted
it as soon as possible. The illustra-
tor couldn't deliver it by January
2008, so the publishers asked me
who I would like. We knew each
other professionally and I knew her
art. The publishers checked out her
Web site and loved it and she said
yes. It was a chance for me to go to a
studio and see how she interpreted
my words. You need a balance
between the text and illustrations.
Janeen used melted crayons and
, swirled, it to make it look like
space."
Ms Berkes is particularly pleased
that the book has been singled out,
for praise by Neil deGrasse Tyson,
director of the Hayden Planetarium
in New York, and she hopes to
arrange a book signing there when
she returns to NewYork this fall.
The author will spend time in the
next few months closer to home, as
well, with book signing and school
appearances for the new book on
the schedule. She'll appear at the
Barnes & Noble in Jensen Beach on
Sept. 27 and ,at the Barnes & Noble
in West Melbourne on Sept. 30.
)She'll also do school visits through-
out the Treasure Coast.

takes you to so many places. You
have to have books that arevibrant

interesting and informative. That's

Jensen Beach looks

to reverse its

fortunes in 2008


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
JENSEN BEACH After
several subpar seasons,
including a 1-9 performance
in 2006, the Jensen Beach Fal-
cons seemed ready to finally
soar last year.
The flight was short-lived,
as Jensen Beach. stumbled
out of the gate, losing its first
five games. Unlike the previ-
ous year's debacle where
Jensen Beach was out of
nearly every game, four of the
contests were closely con-
tested, and easily could have
gone in the Falcons' favor.
Jensen Beach opened up
with consecutive 13-9 losses
to South Fork and Jupiter
Christian, both of which went
on to have successful seasons.
The Falcons fell again 21-
15 to Marathon, before being
blown out by a solid Fort
Pierce Westwood team.
Another defeat to Sebring left
Jensen Beach as losers of 14


of its last 15 games.
Despite the circumstances,
the Falcons came out blazing
in its matchup with Sebastian
River. Starting at the Sharks'
49, quarterback John Glenn
worked the no-huddle
offense to perfection, first hit-
ting Korey Foottpan for a 20-
yard strike.
A few plays later, he don-
nected with Gerald Footman
for a 9-yard gain before hit-
ting Brindle Tillman for
another 9-yard pickup, this
time for a\touchdown.
"We as coaches decided to
cone out ith the no-huddle
and throw it at them," then-
Jensen Beach coach Ralph
Radtke said. 'We talked about
it all week. I said, let's roll the
dice and the kids came up
big."
The 6-0 lead quickly evapo-
rated, as the Sharks needed
just two plays to gain the
upper hand and pull ahead

by l.
The Falconi answered with
a strong return by Cody
Hager, but the play was
negated by a penatly. It
appeared Jensen Beach
would have to wait to try and
regain the lead, as a Glenn
pass on third down fell harm-
lessly to the ground.
However, a Sebastian River
pass interference call gave the'
Falcons new life and the team
quickly capitalized, getting a
field goal to make it 9-7.
In the third quarter with the
Falcons still clinging to the
two-point lead, the Sharks
were driving for the go-ahead
scorewhen a hand offbetween
quarterback Chris Lyda and
Justin Moree went awry.
The ball glanced off Moree's
shoulder pads into the waiting
arms of defensive end Mike
Kissane. Kissane quickly scafi-
pered 54 yards in the opposite
direction for a 15-7 advantage,
Tlwadefensehelped the ead
stand, and Jensen Beach had
its fr district winr in V 61'o
history.
"Looking back at the sea-
son, if we had a perform-
ance like we had tonight,
we could've easily been 4-
1," Radtke had said. "It's the
first time we had enough go
right."
Jensen Beach followed
with another solid effort,
nearly running its district

winning streak to two. The
Falcons gave area rival
Martin County all it could
handle, but lost 30-27.
Not to be deterred,
Jensen Beach proceeded to
win two of its next three
games to end the season on
a positive note, including a
35-6 blowout of Port St.
Lucie.


Despite the noted
improvement, Radtke was
let go .after the season and
replaced by offensive line
coach Floyd Graham, Much
of Jensen's second-half suc-
cess can be traced to Gra-

English will be the language of golf for LPGA members


If you are reading this
cplumn, congratula-
tions; you very likely
would keep your LPGA
membership card, should
you have one.
In case you missed the
big news this past week,
the LPGA announced that
its members must, after a
two-year membership,
pass an oral English exam.
Yes, the ladies tour wants
all of its members to be
able to converse in Eng-
lish.
It is part of the LPGA's
"Five Points of Celebrity."
Those points are: appear-


ance, relevance,
approachability, joy/pas-
sion and performance. I
would say being able to
speak in the native lan-
guage of the country in
which you are making a
living, thus being able to
speak to sponsors and
their clients, answer the
media's questions, and so
forth, falls under the
approachability point.
Over the past week, I've
heard arguments from
both sides of the issue.
Personally, I see nothing
wrong with requiring the
players on a tour played


predominantly in this
country to speak English.
This isn't an issue of
"America, love it or leave
it" or "I had to learn
English to work here, so
should you." It's about
money, marketing and
keeping a shrinking group
of sponsors happy.
One of the first things I
heard from those who
oppose the new require-
ment is that you cannot
force someone to learn a
language that they choose
not to learn. It cannot
possibly be constitutional.
Well, the LPGA is a
private business. While it
cannotexclude Asians or
Europeans or South
Americans, it can require
English language skills as
a condition of participa-
tion, just as it requires golf
skills.
Look up "bona fide
occupational qualifica-
tion." Companies have a

fair amount of leeway in
determining what a BFOQ
is. This is a pretty straight-
forward case. In my
opinion, it is important to
the LPGA's business that it
keeps its sponsors happy.
Having players who can
speak and understand
English is a business
necessity.'
The LPGA is a private
organization and its
players are independent
contractors who have a
choice as to whether they
want to meet the terms
and conditions of a
contract arrangement.
The same terms state
players must play in the
pro-am in order to play,
the tournament that week.
Those same terms state
that players must wear
shorts, slacks or skirts. If
you insist ihat it is your
right to play in a thong
bikini, you won't be
allowed to play on the
LPGA Tour.
It is my'understanding
from sources with the


GOLF
JAMES
STAMMER


LPGA that the tour has
made repeated efforts to
motivate non-English
speakers to learn enough
English to communicate
with fans, pro-am part-
ners and media alike.
Either the players chose to
ignore the memos or they
lacked the ability to read
them and forced the
LPGA's hand in this.
I look at it his way.
These women are the
facing representatives for
the LPGA. Would you run
your business with cus-
tomer-facing employees
that could not speak
English?
Could this matter have
been handled better?
Probably. But I do believe
that two years is plenty of
time to get with the

program. The LPGA tried
to handle this without
making the matter public,
but it took the threat of
suspension as punish-
ment to get their atten-
tion.
Tpday's economic times
are tough and things aren't
getting better any time
soon. Sponsoring a
wonten's professional golf
tournament is not really
about getting return on
your investment. It is
almost a perk that was a
loss leader. You spend
some money to put your
name up there, allow your
best clients to play golf
with some pros, have a
good time at the tourna-
ment in the hospitality
suites and so forth.
Now that the economy
has fallen on hard times,
companies aren't willing
to lose money for perks
and the wishes of corpo-
rate egos. You have to bear
down and cut some
luxuries.
Sponsoring the LPGA is
a luxury that has no place
for these companies in the
new economy. Forget the
"exposure" stuff from
marketing 101. Some
decisions are made on the
notion that the money
exists and this is the time
to spend it. Now that
money is drying up, the
LPGA needs to find ways
to keep it from disappear-
ing altogether. Having a
tour filled with personable
players who can commu-
nicate is the first step.
Contrary to popular
opinion, tournament
sponsors generally do not

How the rain causes many changes for area fishermen


They are back and I don't
mean the snook. The Army
Corp of Engineers is back in
our waters. The water levels
on the lakes are out of con-
trol and they must slow it
down, so here comes the
pulse releases. Let's hope
they are short and minimal.
New faces at South Flori-
da Water Management and
the Army Corp and the pur-
chase of agriculture land
south of the lake shows-
there is a new attitude
toward the water in our
state. Let us hope our estu-
ary can live through it all.
Surf anglers look for the
clean water. Get away from
the brown, blue and green is
the color. A good run of
mullet on the beach has big
jacks, big snook and tarpon
crashing through them.
Look for the bait schools
and I know you will be in the
fish. Cast something that is
about the size of the bait in
the school; that is what they
are focused on.
The jacks will eat any

CAIMATTO


thing but the snook and tar-
pon can be real picky. There
are plenty of big croakers
and enough whiting that
you'll need to bring a bucket
of ice with you. Blue water
and bait, does it get any bet-
ter?
This might not be the
time for top water fishing.
The edges of the Indian
River are brown, but toward
the deeper water it cleans
up. From Bear Point south
to the Stuart Causeway, in 3
to 4-feet of water, there are
trout, snook, tarpon, and a
few reds. The biggest lady-
fish I can recall and really
nice flounder have all made
the Snook Nook log.
Slow down and fish deep.
You are looking for the salt
water, remember, fresh


water floats.
From the bridges there
have been plenty of black
drum and snapper. Both
species have a bag limit.
Black drum must lbe
between 14-24 inches ma\-
imum. Five is the bag limit.
Snappers have a wide mini-
mum, depending the
species, but the aggregate is
ten. Shrimp is the best bait
from the bridge, it seenmn
that is all they want, so give
to them,
Offshore, run to the blue
water. Get out of the brown,
it's easy to find this color
line. Bait has been an issue,
so get out the cast net and
bring in some mullet. There
were a few dolphin at 150-
feet, and at 80-feet there
were kings and cobia on
down lines. The key was the
live bait. Bottom fishing is
good with plenty of big
muttons a few grouper, but
the target has been the
snapper. Because fresh
water floats, the salinity
levels are still deep A sar-


dine on a jig hasi been \.et
productive for all of the
above.
North Fork, South Fork
and the wide St. Lucie Ri\er
are all fresh water. There are
still a few snook at the Roo-
sevelt Bridge, Evans Crary


and the inlet, but you have
to fish deep, with slow pres-
entation.
Yes, the\ will go into fresh
water but the water is of
such poor quality that they
will stay down, how quickly
things change with one


storm.
lensen Beach and the Stu-
art causeway are the best
bets.

have first crack at the pro

going to want to have its
major clients play with a

While not nearly as bad

memorable event for the

client. That lessens the
sponsor's return on
investment even more.
While the way this was
rolled out is a public
relations fiasco, I don't
think it's unreasonable to
require those reaping the
benefits of LPGA member-
ship to do all they can to
sustain or grow them.
It's not about American
pride and wanting people
working here, or for an


American company, to
speak our language. It's
about survival, and at thb
moment, the'LPGA is
fighting to survive.
