Children's Council
plans tax increase
If given final approval on
Oct. 2, the Children's Services
Council of Martin County will
raise its portion of Martin
County' property taxes for the
2008-09 fiscal year.
Council merpbers voted for
the increase in light of the
county's declining property
values. The new rate will be
$0.3523 per each $1.000 in
property value and should
provide the agency more than
$11 million in tax revenues.
That figure ieflects about
$1 million more than received
under the current tax rate.
The council, which coordi-
nates funding for programs
aimed at disadvantaged chil-
dren, plans on using the new
funds to provide additional
services.

Jensen Beach pastor,
wife, arrested
Martin County Sheriff's
deputies arrested a local pas-
tor andchis wife on Sept. 16 on
state racketeering charges.

his wife, Shalonda, were
charged, with grand theft,
,obtaining a mortgage by false
representation and conspira-
,cy to commit racketeering, in

Medicaid hospice


rates slated for cuts

Reduction could start Oct. 1


By Donald Rodrigue

STUART If Congress
fails to act on a piece of
emergency legislation,
Treasure Coast Hospice,
and hospice providers
around the nation, will
begin to see cuts in their
Medicaid reimbursement
rates beginning Oct. 1.
-A decision by the Center
for Medicare and Medicaid
Services to reduce the rate
has local hospice officials
concerned about how they
will continue to provide the
same level of services to
the terminally ill and their
families.
Louis Benson, chief
executive officer of Trea-
sure Coast Hospice, the
organization providing
hospice services to Martin,
St. Lucie ;and Okeechobee
counties, says the potential
4 percent Medicaid reduc-


tion the first year is much
worse than it sounds.
"Right now, last year's
margin on all of our opera-
tions, was less than [1 per-
cent," he said. "As a not-for-
profit, you don't want to
run a negative balance and
lose money every year or
you're not going to be in
business."
According to Dr. Benson,
the center's ruling is slated
to eliminate what's known
as the budget neutrality
adjustment, factor, which
was established in 1997 to
minirhize disruption in.

pice services. I If imple-
mented in October, the
reduction would reduce
Medicaid reimbursements
nationally by $2.2 billion
and could shave 15 percent
off of Treasure Coast's

said Ms. Riley. "What a wonderful
opportunity Northrop Grumman
has given us."
This year, G-Force One will fly

Chicago, Atlanta and San Jose.
"By the erid of this year we will
have flown nearly 1;,000 teachers
from all over the country," said Jim

Dr. Zinderman is certified

He says integrating cotn-

"The Chinese practice,
such as acupuncture, is very

it can't take x-rays. We still

IRS donates computers for local students


By Donald Rodrigue
Rodrigue@hometownnewsol.com
STUART -. Although the
Internal Revenue Service
might.not.be classified as a
"generous," organization, a
group of East Stuart youth
Share viewing it in an entirely
different light after it donat-
ed several computers to
their after-school program.
Michael Yasofsky, special
agent in charge of the IRS's
criminal investigation .divi-
sion based in Miami, paid a
special visit to the Building
Bridges to Youth organiza-
tion in East Stuart recently
to officially convey the gift
of approximately 40 desktop
computers and 40 laptops
to the group..
He congratulated the
after-school program's'
assistant director, Robert


Delancy, for his efforts to
obtain the donation..
"We would like to thank
Mr.. Delancy for giving us
the opportunity to make a
positive impact on these
young people's lives," he
said. "We are giving sru-
dents the tools necessary to
develop the strong techno-
logical foundations that will
better prepare them for the
rigors pf high school and the
workforce."
Mr. Delancy is a career
IRS agent who spent' 29
years with the organization
before retiring last October.
A native of Jensen Beach,
he spent the last 10 years
working in computer foren-
sics, and drew on the inter-
nal connections he made
during that time to orches-
trate the donation.


He credited'Victor Lessof,
an IRS Tampa field office
agent, Clyde Banks, South-
eastern area director for the
IRS national computer
operations center and Mr.
Yasofskvy with helping make
the donation a reality. .
"It was a lengthy process,
but because I had worked
with all three, they were able
to get all the paper- work
through." he said. "This is a
very, vety elaborate process,
afid the hard drives have to
be totally wiped so there is
absolutely no way the data
can be recovered."
'Since receiving the com-
puters, Mr. Delancy has
been installing biology,
physics and chemistry pro-
grams so the students can
do extra research in their
most troubling subjects on


their own time.
"These computers are
allowing us to help these
kids go at their own pace
using drills and practices,"
he said. "The kids will also
have the opportunity to
checkout a laptop to take
it home with them if the\
want to work on the week-
end."
Mr. Delancy is also
using some of the older
computers to teach the
youth. about the inner
workings ol PCs. They're
even learning to replace a
motherboard.

student Fred Israel, 13,
says he's ahead learning
how to build a computer

"Every engineer, every
scientist, every technically
trained person in our nation
can look back and identify a
teacher who played a signif-
icant role in his or her deci-
sion to pursue a technical
career," said Sandra Evers-
Manly, president of the
Northrop Grumman Foun-

"The Weightless Flights of
Discovery program is all
about giving teachers the
tools and experiences they
need to show their students
that math and science are
not only entertaining, but
can also be the basis for a
fascinating career."
While on the flight, teach-
ers will conduct simple
experiments to test the
effect of weightlessness in
different situations.
Ms. Riley teaches stu-
dents at Sandy Pines, an in-
patient psychiatric facility
overseen by the Martin
County School District.
"The kids I teach are very
bright," she said. "They just
have had some bad experi-
ences in the school system.
I try to give them a positive
one."
The weightless flight ties
in well with the student's
current curriculum, said
Ms. Riley.
"We've been learning
about Newton's laws, about
gravity, and things like
that," she said.
Ms. Riley and two other


teachers will conduct sever-
al experiments while on th;.
flight.
They will test the effect oC,
centrifugal forces when '
balls are thrown between
the trio.
"And, of course, I want to ,
fly like Superman," she said;."
When asked whether hef
students are excited about',
her upcoming flight, Ms.,
Riley joked, "I think they're-'-
tired of hearing about it." '
She hopes to install a-"!

will be able to watch a video

The plane will move
through 15 arcs, climbing.';
up at a 45-degree angle and,:
pushing down at a 30-,;,,

Near the top of the arc,
passengers will experience

Sisters aim to help Tigers eam their stripes


Volleyball duo
'formidable'
By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY For
two seasons, the power dis-
play from middle hitter Elise
Walch has left opponents of
the Martin County volleyball
team seeing double.
;This year, those same
adversaries will have even
more reason to see two
Walches on the court, as
Elise's younger sister, Nicole,
joins the team, making a
solid team even more formi-
dable.
"Don't get in the way of
Elise Walch," Tigers' head
cbach Marty Bielicki' said.
"She'llhurtyou.
%"Nicole can hit awfully
Ihrd and she's just a fresh-
tian. She has an extremely
bright future."
:.So far, the siblings have
helped spark Martin County
to two easy wins to start the
season. Elise had 23 kills and
11 service points while
Nicole chipped in six kills
aid four blocks in the Tigers


25-13, 25-12, 25-12 win over
Monarch in her first varsity
match.
"I was kind of nervous
before the game," Nicole
said. "Then it was real excit-
ing.
"When I got (taken) out I
couldn't wait to get back in."
Martin County followed
that victory with another
one, dominating Port St.
Lucie, 25-8, 25-11, 25-9.
Nicole contributed nine kills
in the romp while Elise -
who recently committed to
play for the University of
Wisconsin- had 12 kills and
13 service points, including
six aces.
"It's been good (so far),"
Elisesaid.
The same can be said, for
Walch's short but spectac-
ular career. A basketball
player by nature, friends per-
suaded the junior to try vol-
leyball and'she hasn't looked
back.
"I started in seventh
grade," Walch said. "I played
one point in a middle school
match.
"They put me in the game
and I hit the ball out."
. Walch started for Hidden


"She's broken all the Tigers' blocking and spik-
ing records... She's a tremendous athlete.

Marty Bielicki
head coach


Oaks Middle School in
eighth grade before playing
her freshman year for Martin.,
County. She quickly made an
impact, tallying 30. kills in a
match to break the school
record of 25 set in 1994.
Walch also set the school
record for blocks in a season
with 167.
"Freshman year was really
exciting," Walch said. "I had a
lot of fun."
The 16-year-old continued
to excel last year, as the acco-
lades and school records.
piled up. The middle hitter
had 418 kills (352 attack kills
and 66 block kills), earning
her a spot in Martin County
history, as did her single-
game mark of 31 kills against
West Boca Raton.
"She's broken all the Tigers'
blocking and spiking
records," Bielicki said. "She's.
a tremendous athlete."
Following in her sister's 6-


foot-5 footsteps is Nicole.
She started playing volleyball
in fifth grade and quickly fell
in love with the sport.
"We both just decided to
play," Nicole. said. "It just
kept going from there."
While refining her own
game, Nicole an' impres-
sive 6-foot- 1 at age 14 -
also was a constant presence
at the Tigers' matches, as
went as attending practices
last year. The freshman's
transition to high school vol-
leyball has been a smooth
one, due in part to Bielicki,
who is in his 27th season.
"I love him," Nicole said.
"He makes me play better.
"It's really nice to have
such an expericed coach
who has been through a lot
of volleyball in his career."
The sisters have also been
mutually supportive.

Both he and his older
brother, Avery Clark, 14, say
they both like surfing the
Internet and looking at dif-
ferent Web sites. Avery says
he's learned an interesting
fact about computers
through Building Bridges to
Youth.
"Computers have gold in
them in the memory chip,"
he said.
Stuart native and Building
Bridges, volunteer Andrea
Dixon was helping the
brothers hone their reading
skills recently through an
online article about Denver
Nuggets basketball player


Allen Iverson.
The article was about the
sluggish real estate economy
and Mr. Iverson's difficulty
selling a $4 million mansion
irl Pennsylvania, but Ms.
Dixon used the sports star
hook to get them to read it.
"I'm trying to help them
get their comprehension
skills up and get them ready
for the FCAT," she said.
"Finding something that the
boys like to read, now that's
work."
Mr. Delancy plans to soon
use his young students to
help teach the elderly how to
use computers as well.
"We are teaching these
kids that, as people give to
you, you must give back," he
said. "The intergenerational
thing of working with the
elderly people is one way
they can do that."

recovered. However, there is a
twist to this story a46out ransom
money ard parachuting out of
planes. In late 1978 a placard
containing instructions on how
to lower the aft stairs of a 727,
later confirmed to be from the
rear stairway of the plane from
which Cooper jumped, was
found just a few flying minutes
north of Coopers projected
drop zone. The drop zone was
between Seattle, Washington
and Reno, Nevada. Then, in
1980, eight year old Brian
Ingram was scooping out sand
for a firepit on the banks of the
Columbia River and uncovered
$5,880 in decaying bills(a total
of 294 $20 bills), still bundled in
rubber bands, approximately 40
feet from the waterline and
2 inches below the surface.
Brian and his family were 5
miles northwest of Vancouver,
Washington. After comparing
the serial numbers with those
from the ransom given to
Cooper almost nine years earli-
er it was proven that money
found by Brian was part of the
ransom given to Cooper. Now
for the first time Brian is making
available some of the ransom
money he was allowed to keep
by the US government. It is
available for sale with signed
documentation and story at the
Long Beach Numismatic Show
Song on right now in. Long
each, CA.

Make rants and raves easier


It's been a couple of years since I've read Hometown News
because I moved out of the area.
Hometown News Rants and Raves was one of my favorite
sections the paper printed; anonymous letters made this
publication unique. As another reader pointed out, one
could voice a point of view without fearing reprisal. So what
happened? Why did the letters fall off?
Obviously there is more than just one reason. But here's
one thing that almost derailed my letter. I spent far too long
looking for an easy button, so t o s peak. I ike an online link to
S e-mail a letter directly without it defaulting,to Outlook or
Outlook Express.

wait until get home. If I don't leave today, I'm afraid the gas
prices tomorrow will be so much higher .than today or,
S worse yet, there %ill be no gas at all. Why? "They" blame Ike.
Next time I'd like to talk about what "they" tell us, and
why "we" allow it to bappen.
Keep those letters coming folks: we can't hear you shrug-
ging your shoulders! If you \%ani change, change your mind.

Editor's note: First, thanks for writing. There is a distinc-
tion between rants and raves and letters to the editor.
Rants can be anonymous, as the reader notes. Rants come
to us in a variety of ways: via our Rants and Raves telephone
line, fax, "snail mail" and e-mail.
Letters to the editor, on the other hand, must be verified
and include a name and place of origin.
S We encourage readers to send us their rants and raves, as
S- ell as their letters to t heeditor, for publication. We don't

Clean up after your dog
S I qote from a page of a page-a-day calendar if only to
' sfov ldaTTiffi t th e'6niily bine'who feels this'way: "Dog
[..b-oop isk the curse of'our age, the symbol of all thiflis wrong,
with our modern society, the carelessness, the selfishness,
the lack of individual responsibility."
I'm not too crazy about dog urine, either. Even those who
0. pick up seem to have no qualms about the urine. It's my
" yard. I work in it, not being able to afford yard maintenance,
and thinking a dog might have been there, makes me
uncomfortable. Why can't dogs use their own yard?

Why my vote is for Obama

* Over the years, I have been registered as both a Democra-
tic and a Republican. However, I registered as an independ-
ent during the first term of President George Bush. I have
become very disappointed with the political bickering and
S gridlock that the political division has caused. As an inde-
pendent voter, I usually find myself voting not necessarily
for a candidate, but against the other one. ,
I look at the growing problems facing America: rising
S unemployment, falling stock market, rising national debt,
rising foreign trade deficit,, financial insecurity of Social
. Security and Medicare, falling home % alues and rising fore-
,. closures, immigration, wariina iraq ,and, tens of millions
without health care insurance.
An increasing number of Americans are hurting as a
: result of failed government programs. I look at the two pres-
idential candidates to determine who, has the best chance

Managing your own stress as a caregiver


I wrote this column a few
weeks ago, when things
were getting more
challenging for both Roy
and me. I have heard from
so many of you, expressing
sadness at his death, and I
will talk about that in an
upcoming column. I have
discovered how many of
you are caregivers and I
hope these tips help you a
bit as you grapple with the
biggest challenge of your
life.

The first thing you learn
as a caregiver is that you
are thinking and acting for
two.
In progressive diseases
such as Alzheimer's and
Parkinson's 'things that
your loved one could do
before take more time or
are now impossible. For
Roy. getting dressed,
bathing and eating have
become challenges. He has
to use a walker. I haVre had
to find the time anclenergy
to add all of the things Roy
did and there were so
many7,-' to my schedule.
I recendv found a'


brochure from the
Alzheimer's Association
that listed 10 symptoms of
caregiver stress If you are
finding yourself feeling
these symptoms, as I have
been, it's time to stop, take
a deep breath, and get
help.
Denial about the
disease and the effect on
the patient: "I know mom
or dad or my husband will
get better."
: *Anger.atthe patient or
others, that there is no
cure that people don't
understand what you're.
going through.
Social withdrawal from
friends and activities that
once brought pleasure: "I
don't really feel like
meeting my friends
anymore it's not fun."
Anxiety about the
future: "What happens


when he needs more'help
than I can provide? What
happens when he doesn't
know my name?"
Depression that begins
to break your spirit and
affects your ability to cope:
"I don't care anymore."
Exhaustion that makes
it impossible to complete
necessary daily tasks: "I'm
too tired to do this."
Sleeplessness caused
by never-ending worry.
*Irritability that leads to
moodiness ands triggers
negative responses: "Leave
me alone!".
Lack of concentration
that makes it difficult to
keep up: "I was so busy, I
forgot we had an appoint-
ment."' #:,1 ? v: .. em
Health problems that
begin to- take their-toll-:
mentally and physically: "I
can't remember that last
time I felt well."
I have experienced most
of these feeling and I know
how debilitating they are. I
have begun to take small,
steps to deal with them.
I try to exercise 40
minutes aday; I use


exercise videcr, so I can do
it at home. Myblood
pressure has already come
down.
I have sometimes had to
force myself to call a friend
to meet someone for
coffee, but I am flying to
keep in touch, even when I
feel down.
I hm tackling small
projects: a drawer, a stack
of papers, to get a little
more control of my 'i
surroundings.
I am tryingg to live in this
day cr these 10,minutes
and rnt worry about the
future. I am talking to
counselors.
None of these is the
absolute answer, but each
helps a bit. fyou're.dit
caregiver, tate stock of the
--situation. If ihjs beginning
to spiral out cf control,,
start making changes now.

Use backups to recover from PC disasters


T here is one comput-
er- related topic that
keeps generating
one question after n o th-
er. It's a topic that everry-
body knows about, et
most ofus are guilty ot not
taking it seriously enough.
And those of us wh) do
take it seriously are often
doing it wrong.
What is it that I'n
writing about this 4eek? If
you guessed backing up
your computer, you
'guessed right!
Over the years, I know I
have touched on this
subject a number of times,
but what has prompted
me to touch on it again is
the other half of.the
equation that never seems
to get any attentiolr.
"IYdti see, so muchitime is
spent on how important
having a backup is, how to
perform the backup or
what needs to be included
in the backup, that :he

of how to restore the

Then, when disaster
strikes and people have to
go restore from backup,:
the recovery steps they are
following (if any) often

\ou'rleft feeling lost.
Here's a or instance.
One.ackup utilitN that I
kn ,WO.'if makes tlhe
..' option that the
gt puter Itell is intact
but the data itself became
lost or corrupt. Then, the
recovery steps make
suggestions such as
"double click the restore
icon on your desktop,"
which makes no sense if
you are restoring after a
hard drive crash or
completely replacing a
computer.
Another example
involves "ghosting" or
"imaging" software.
This backup concept is
that if you regularly image
(or ghost) your machine,
then recovering from hard
drive disaster is a snap.
Just re-image a new hard
drive and all of your data,
and settings are restored
exactly as they were right
before disaster struck.
But what happens if the
disaster isn't with the hard
drive, but with the moth-
erboard? What if you are
simply trying to move all
of your data and settings
to an altogether new
machine?
Usually, trying to restore


backup data from an
image disk only works if
the computer that is being
re-imaged ha- e'.actiy the
same hardware as the
machine that is being
replaced. IfI cu can get the
image to load at all (on
different hard%\are you
usually end up wiilthaton.
.of driver issues andpther
things that have to be
cleaned up.
I had one frustrated
computer user ask me
recently, "What good is
having the backup run-
ning every night if it still
costs time and money to
have someone come out to
restore it?"
I'll answer that here.
Backing up, your data is a
necessary chore. Without a
backup running regularly,
when you do have a
disaster (whether it's a
hard drive crash or some
other catastrophic failure).
then switching to a new
machine is easy, if starting
with no data is OK with
you.
But what if you would
like your new machine to,
have all your stuff in it?
Wouldn't it be nice if your
new machine (or hard
drive) had all of your
documents in your "my
documents." folder and all
those programs that were
installed on the old
machine? Wouldn't it be
nice to have all of those
back?
Well, all that stuff has to


be restored and the new
machine "tweaked" until it
matches the way yoU had
it as close as possible.
Programs that were in
use on the old machine
have to be reinstalled on
the new. You can't just
restore it from backup,
they will have to b6
reinstalled.
Favorites and e-mail all
have to be imported;
manually and applications
that may not be on the
new box have to be
installed.
Take accounting data as
an example. Backing up
the data is one thing, but
people are often surprised
to learn that they need to
reload the accounting
, software on the new
machine if they want to be
'able to restore that
Accounting data.
Chores such as rein-
stalling software and
irifporting the data from
backup can take a lot
longer than it takes to set
up regular nightly
backup, but what it all,
coma down to is this: it's
betterto be struggling
with restoring your data
than tobe wishing you
had something left to
strugglewith. So backup
your datr anyway.

Getting the most out of your car's mileage


Earl Stewart is the owner
and general manager of Earl
Stewart Toyota in North
Palm Beach. The dealership
is located at 1215 N. Federal
Highway in Lake Park.
Contact him atwww.earl-

This week's column
comes from Rick
Kearney, one of three
Toyota certified master
diagnostic technicians at
Earl Stewart Toyota and the
dealerships' resident hybrid
genius.
Rick travels with me
regularly on the lecture
circuit, dispensing advice
and answering questions for
Florida consumers about
their vehicles. He also hosts
our dealership's bi-monthly
new owner's dinner. Rick is
now in the process of
training Palm Beach County
first responders about
hybrid vehicles so they may
safely conduct rescue
operations.
"If you own a Toyota Prius,
one of the most important
issues on your mind is, most
likely, "Why am I getting less
miles per gallon than the car
is rated for?"
The answer is actually
quite complex. The solution
is not.
The first point to remem-
ber is that the EPA mileage
estimates are derived using
pure gasoline. Consumer
gasoline (that which is
available on the open market
for general use) contains up
to 10 percent ethanol. You
can do nothing about this.

Elise said. "I try to help her
out a lot.
"I've never played with my
sister on a team. It's really
fun."


ON CARS
EARL STEWART


EPA estimates are also
done on a test track, not in
"real world" driving situa-
tions. They do not take into
account traffic, trains,
weather, other drivers or
countless other factors we
encounter in daily life.
Here are some tips to help
maximize fuel economy.
They are geared primarily for
the Prius, but most work just
as well on other cars.
Tip 1: Inflate your tires.
Low tire pressure causes
increased resistance and
wastes fuel. Low tire pres-
sure also causes excessive
edge wear on your tires,
shortening their life.
A sticker'located on the
driver's door opening notes
the recommended tire
pressure for the vehicle. Note
the recommended pressure
is 35 front and 33 rear. This is
the MINIMUM pressure that
should be in your tires. On
the sidewall of the tire is
another number, 44 psi. This
is the MAXIMUM pressure
that should be in your tire. A
tire with less pressure rides
softer and uses more fuel. A
tire with more pressure rides
slightly harder and uses less
fuel. Set your tires at 40 psi
and watch your mileage
increase.
Tip 2: Air conditioning.
The Prius air conditioning
system uses electricity to
turn the compressor, while
conventional cars use a belt
on the engine. When the


Nicole has also appreciat-
ed her time on the court, as
well as her sister's advice.
"She pushes me to make
me better," Nicole said.

the same position, with Elise

'season and Nicole moving
back and forth from outside


compressor is running, it
uses power that comes from
gasoline. Automatic air
, conditioning means the ECU
(the computer) can turn the
compressor off when less
cooling is needed. Set your
A/C to a level you find
comfortable. Most people
feel comfortable at 76
degrees. "Lo" temperature
settings run the compressor
much more and this uses
more power.
Remember, everything
that uses electricity uses
more gasoline. The power
has to come from some-
where. The gasoline engine
supplies the electricity for
everything on both hybrids
and conventional cars.
Headlights, radios, and
blower fans all want their
share of power.
Tip 3: Slow down and
smell the roses. Excessive
speed uses more gasoline
than anything else. "Jack
rabbit" starts and hard
acceleration, combined with
hard braking, wastes fuel.
The Prius is designed to get
the best economy in the city.
Slow, easy acceleration
means the car needs less
electricity to get up to speed
and therefore, less gasoline.
Coasting allows the gasoline
engine to turn off and not
use any fuel at all. Sitting at
traffic lights, the gasoline
engine will also shut off and
save fuel. Driving at steady
speeds between 30 and 40
mph allows Prius the
opportunity to make use of
the electric motors and not
use the gasoline engine for
additional power.
Tip 4: Avoid short trips.
Some people tend to drive 1
or 2 miles to the store, then


to middle.
"It doesn't really matter,"
Nicole said, "as long as I get
playing time."
While Elise recently
became sidelined with a
stress fracture in her left foot,
she hopes to return to help
her sister and Martin County
get the Tigers to the volley-


the car sits for an hour or
more. Then they drive lor 2
miles home again and again,
the car sits. These trips do
not allow the gasoline
engine to be run to operat-
ing temperature. Therefore,
the engine is never shut off
during travel times. Plan
your trips to make them in
one big circle. Make the best
use of Prius' capabilities.
Tip 5: Lighten the load.
The more weight you carry
in the car, the more gasoline
is needed to move it down
the road. Do you really need
those golf clubs every day?
What about that bag of
clothes you will take to the
Goodwill someday soon?
Every little bit helps.
Tip 6: Oil changes. Dirt
doesn't weigh very much.
Dirty oil, however, weighs
more than you think. Old oil
has collected dirt from your
engine and holds most of the
small particles in suspen-
sion. Changing your oil can
improve your fuel economy.
Regular maintenance is
important.
Try these tips and track
your fuel mileage the proper
way. Fill your tank and
record the mileage on the
odometer. Drive until empty,
then refill and record the
mileage again.
Calculate how many miles
driven, divided by the
number of gallons of
gasoline pumped. That is
your proper mileage.
: Get six to eight readings
and find the average.
Remember, always stop
pumping fuel when the
pump clicks off. Do not top it
up. Be consistent.
And always remember to
drive safely."

Will presidential election


affect your investments?


Now that both political
parties have held
their respective
conventions, the campaign
season shifts into high gear.
As a citizen, you'll want'to
hear how the candidates
plan to address issues of
importance to you. But as
an investor, you might be
particularly interested in
how the election results can
affect your investments.
Based on what happens
on Nov. 4, should you make
any changes to your
portfolio?
To answer that question,
you may find it useful to
review the history of the
financial markets under
different political scenarios,
according to Ned Davis
Research..
Since 1901, the Dow Jones
Industrial Average has
shown an average annual-
ized return of about 12
percent under Democratic
presidents, compared to
about 8 percent under
Republicans. When Democ-
rats have controlled con-
gress, the Dow's average
annualized return has been
about 11 percent, compared
to about 8 percent when the,
Republicans were in control
Since 1925, long-term
government bonds have
returned more thant7
percent under Republican
presidents, compared to
about 3.4 percent under
Democrats. When Republi-
cans have controlled
congress, the bond market
also fared better than when
Democrats were in charge,
though the difference isn't as
pronounced as in the
comparison between
presidents of different
parties.
But while it's interesting to
study the past, it's not
necessarily instructive about
the future. It's true that by *

CHAPOGAS


changing our tax laws,
government spending and
industry regulations, any
given president and con-
gress can have an impact on
economic growth, jobs;
interest rates and inflation.
All these factors, in turn, can
affect the financial markets.
, Still, it's impossible to
predict just how these forces
will influence the invest-
ment world. Political
candidates often make
promises that never turn
into reality, and even if they
do, they can have unintend-
ed consequences.
Even more importantly,
however, the free-market
forces of our capitalistic
system are likely more
powerful than political
forces in determining the
ultimate performance of
investments.
As a country, we have
experienced many political
changes and upheavals, but,
o er time, our economy has
always proven resilient
enough to provide opportu-
nities for those people with
the faith to invest for the
future.
Here's the bottom line: No
matter who wins the
presidency in November,
and no matter which party
controls congress, you don't
need to change your
investment style or revamp
your portfolio.
Of course, that doesn't
mean you should be
oblivious to new policies
and their potential impact
on your investments. In
fact, it's a good idea to
review your portfolio at
least once a year with your


financial advisor, who can
recommend any changes
that might be beneficial.
So, when it's time to cast
your ballot, support the
candidate who best advo-
cates your concerns on a
range of issues. But when it
comes to your portfolio,
make sure to "vote" for
investment strategies, such
as buying quality stocks and
bonds, holding them for the
long term and building an
investment mix based on
your goals and risk toler-
ance.

"It's like a kitty vacation,"
Dr. Zinderman said
Bayview Construction,
headquarted in Stuart, gener-
al contractor on the project,
completed it with a ribbon-
cutting ceremony the first
week of August.
"It was very beautifully exe-
cuted and is one of the most
modem in terms of technolo-
gy," said Jim Hill, vice presi-
dent of business develop-
ment, "He created something
that others don't have with
modern perks and the most
current equipment available."
The center boasts a large
cathedral ceiling and lobby
area, surgical room with a
viewing window, high-tech


digital x-ray room,
private treatment rooms and
automated pet lifts.
Dr. Linderman, who began
his career as a horse groomer,
specializes in equestrian
health, and after more than 20
years of working with horses,
furthered his education and
received a veterinary degree
from the Florida College of
Veterinary Medicine in 1998.
"I wanted to have an animal
hospital in the community I
live in and I decided to go high
tech because our community
really needed it," said Dr. Lin-
derman.

Know where to look, the fish are there


Finally, a day without
wind. There are still a
few showers, but I can
live with that.
The west side of the Indian
River is starting to settle out
and the mullet are every-
where.
The trout like the flat water.
They much prefer quiet
water and most think that
the east side is the best
location, but I have always
caught the bigger trout on
the west side in the shallow-
est of water. Top water lures
before sun up and sure
enough, two fish over 8
pounds.
There has been a good
showing of trout this week
from the Stuart causeway
north to Bear Point. There's
plenty of mullet out there,
just look for the bait sprays,
cast that top water to the
middle and let it set, one ,
light jerk and they are on.
But then it could be one of
those pesky snook, a jack or
even a red fish.
It's amazing what happens,
when the water quality picks
up.
The snook bite has been
best in the evening hour, and
again, the mullet are thick, so
if it looks like a mullet or it is
a mullet throw it, present
your bait up into the current


and let the tide do the work.
Some reds were reported
working the docks from
Midway Road south to the
power plant, early morning
has been their time. A triple
tail on the channel markers
or a shrimp on a jig head gets
their attention. Reports are
saying there are lots of
ladyfish everywhere, so bring
along a few extra shrimp.


I didn't hear much about
tarpon this week, but there
were a few at Big Mud and a
few on the north side of the
jetty.
There have been bluefish in
the beach, but not quite as
many as last week. As the sun
rises, the blues move out to
deeper water. Fish them
from sun up till about mid
morning, you will know

Kona on the Big Island. Part
two was all about our very
busy trip to Maui, which
included a travel industry
conference with hotel and
attraction visits. It appeared
that many of the native
Hawaiians know their history
and were quite interesting
and entertaining (read about
John the singing cowboy on
Kona, in part one).
We left our incredible Maui
hotel, the Ritz Carlton
Kapalua, early to catch our 45
minute flight to Kauai.We
arrived in Lihue airport,
located on the eastern coast,
early, but before we could get
on our way, we had to wait for
our (ever growing) luggage
that somehow did not make
the flight. (I guess things really
are no different in paradise.)
Before leaving the main-
land, I had done some

research and knew this was
one place I would want to
rent a car, and I was so happy
we did.
Our hotel was located on
Kaui's north shore in the area
of Princeville.The drive was
full of breath-taking views. We
could see why they call it' the
Garden Isles as we drove
through small towns and
surrounded bylush moun-
tains. Everywhere we looked
there was one scene more
beautiful than the other. It is
no wonder, since Kauai is the
only Hawaiian island that has
navigable rivers and it is
home to some of the rarest
birds on the planet.
Kauai boasts 40 superb
beaches and hometo four of
Hawaii's best golf courses.
The sharp contrast to the lush
scenery of the Na Pali Coast is
the west coast of the island in
Waimea, called the Grand
Canyon of the Pacific. This is
where Captain Cook landed
in 1778.
Because our next lodging at
theWestin OceanResort &
Villas was a condo hotel, with
full kitchens, we decided to
stop along the way to pick up
a few items at a local grocery
store. We had a little culture
shockwhenwe picked up a
carton of Tropiana orange
juice and the price was $6.29
(guess there'd be no OJfor us).
Other items were nearly
double what we would have
paid at home.
With all of the beautiful
resorts that I either stayed at
or visited on my Hawaiian
trip, you would think that
there could not be one with
more beauty. Not true. The.
hotelwas absolutely breath-'
taking.
The entire resort appeared
as though it was floating on
the lush green cliffs above the
Pacific. Our condo had all the
amenities of home. It was a
new resort that had been
open for only three weeks. It
had three pools one is an
infinity pool and one that you
could just walk right in (like a
beach).
There were so many: ...
activities at the resort, and we
proceeded to check them all
out. lusi witnessing the
scenery was a vacation for--,,

in and in the mix, there's always a
pompano or three. Anglers at the
Snook Nook have reported catches
throughout the day. The favored lure
on the beach has been chrome
spoon or chrome top water, with lots
of flash.
Offshore things have not changed:
run to the color line, then start
fishing. There have been dolphin
reports from 90-feet out, with real
nice weed lines on the 200-foot
mark.


While trolling these lines, always
run a down bait. Big dolphin will be
deep, following the smaller fish. The
reason smaller dolphin are on the
surface hiding in the weeds is
because big dolphin eat little
dolphin.
A few sails have been reported in
the 125-foot zone, but the cobia
have been up close, around 90-feet.
Have a pitch rod ready, or maybe
two, because you never know when
that cobia will bring a friend.

Nook Bait and Tackle shop in Jensen

your eyes. We just relaxed and
enjoyed.
The next day we jumped in our
car to head off to the Na Pali
National Park. It was about a 30-
minute drive through winding,
two-lane roads and.one-lane
bridges.
Trying to describe the scenery or
the views would not do it justice;
there are unbelievably glorious
mountain vistas, rainforests and
waterfalls in this park. The beaches


sort of dropped off the mountains;
you had to climb down to them.
The Na Pali National Park is a
hiker's dream. We passed people
standing under endless amounts
of waterfalls enjoying the moment.
I definitely took lots of pictures.
No wonder this treasured
destination has been chosen by
many Hollywood producers as a
setting. More than 60 films have
been shot here including Jurassic
Park, King Kong and the Indiana
Jones films. We really wished we
had more time to explore the rest
of this incredible island. :
We returned to the villas to enjoy
our last day in the islands. This was


a perfect end to a wonderful trip.
We did some last minute shop-
ping. Yes, everyone was gettingT-
shirts. We spent the evening just
relaxing and enjoying the scenery
on our lanai.
Tomorrow we head home with
all our memories of the beauty and
hospitality of these,beautiful
islands. I highly recommend that
you put the islands of Hawaii on
your wish list.
Manama mono or take care and
aloha, key ku or farewell, everyone.

Restaurant

brings 'old

concept' to

new area

New twist on
deli format
By Michelle Gentile
For Hometown News
PORT ST. LUCIE- Local
restaurateurs are using a
concept from up north to
spruce up the world of fast
food here.
. Opening any restaurant
can be a risky proposition,
but with a good work ethic
and a creative approach'
success is possible, said
local businessman Fred
Caprio.
Chicken on the Run,
located at 1758 S.E. Port St.
Lucie Boulevard, was the
perfect place to open a
New, York-style chicken
restaurant with a twist,
according to its owners,
who moved here from New
Jersey.
Many have frequented
the classic New York deli,
where the menu has hun-
dreds of items. It's a place
where dad can order
jumbo garlic chicken
wings, mom can feast on
an overstuffed chicken
Caesar wrap and the kids
can munch on barbeque
ribs, fried chicken or
seafood.
"We wanted to bring
something different to the
area, and I couldn't have
done this in New Jersey

Chicken on the Run was the perfect place to open a New York-style chicken restau-
rant with a twist, according to owners Fred and Tina Caprio, who moved from New
Jersey. The restaurant opened in May and is creating a buzz with its mile-long menu
and hundreds of choices available for take-out, eat-in and delivery.


because they've seen and
heard about it before," said
Mr. Caprio, who, with wife,
Tina, owns Chicken on the
Run. "I had a lady come in
and look at the menu for
15 minutes. People are
pleasantly shocked that
there is so much variety
and that it is available by
delivery too."
The restaurant opened
in May and the chefs and
crew have been busy cus-
tomizing the menu, creat-
ing new items and perfect-
ing the essentials.
The main staple is chick-
en, and it comes in every
possible way.
It can be roasted or fried,
skinless- or barbequed. It
can be served in a sand-
wich, salad, bucket or plat-
ter and is available for an
average lunch price of


about$5.
"Our chicken is not
frozen, it's fresh. We have
nothing processed and we
use cottonseed canola oil
to keep out saruraied fais,"
Mr. Capria said. -
,Everything is made-to
order. The fried chicken is
"broasted" which means
it's cooked through pres-
sure. The outcome, the
Caprios say, is less grease,
more juice and a really]
good taste.
-"We make everything
from scratch and we just
added fresh chicken pot
pies to the menu," said Mr.
Caprio. "We are always try-
ing new things and we've
got a lot of compliments
on our homemade baked
macaroni and cheese and
our sweet iced tea; people
say it's the best around."


The restaurant is not a
typical fast food place., It
has state-of-the-art equip-
ment, doesn't use 'heated
lamps to keep old food
warm and orders can take
up to 12 minutes.
"We encourage. people
to call ahead," said Mr.
Caprio. "Good food takes
time, but it will be ,.fresh
and hot." .,
The Caprips didn't come
from a restaurant back-
ground.
Mr. Caprio was formerly
in the auto parts, business
and Mrs. Caprio was a hair
dresser. During their
annual trip to Port St.
Lucie, they had a brain-
storm. '

Delicious, easy desserts with fruit on hand


Hello smart shoppers.
This week, before the
season is over for
stone fruits such as peaches,
nectarines, plums, apricots,
etc., we're going to talk
about fruit.
' You do.know that all fruits
must be washed, strawber-
ries, blueberries, etc., but
have you ever washed a
cantaloupe? A while ago


cantaloupes were spreading
e-coli bacteria. The bacteria
were on the skin, and as you
sliced the fruit, it tainted the
flesh.
How about bananas?
Where has that banana been
and what has it come in
contact with?
A cold-water bath with a
little liquid soap or white
vinegar is fine for washing
fruits. Just be sure you rinse
well. When it comes to
melons, use a scrub brush.
Are you tired of looking at
that lonely peach, plum,
nectarine or any fruit that
doesn't get eaten? Are the
bananas getting too many
flecks, is there only one slice
of melon left?
Empty the refrigerator and
peel only when necessary.
We're going to make a fresh
fruit salad. We'll follow that
with a fruit dessert to beat
all, a trifle and a fat-free fruit
cobbler.
See you next week.

LET'S EMPTY THE
REFRIGERATOR
FRUIT SALAD (NIB)
Cut fruits into bite-size
pieces and place in a large
bowl. Squeeze on some
lemon juice (prevents fruits
from darkening).
Add 1/2-cup orange juice
or any other juice available
(but no prune juice).
Melt 1 to 2 tablespoons
honey in 1/3-cup warm
. water. Pour over fruit, mix
well and taste for balance of
sweetness. For adults, spike
it up with a splash of
anisette or schnapps. Chill
and enjoy.
Any kind of fruit can be
used, from fresh to canned
to frozen.

TRIFLE
Serves 10-12
Regular and low fat
versions
What is a trifle? You know
what it is. Special trifle bowls
are everywhere; large,
round, straight-sided bowls
8-inches in diameter on a
pedestal base.
According to a friend in
England, a trifle means


anything goes. Leftover
plain cake or jelly roll was
sliced and placed in a flat, 3-
inch deep dish, drizzled
with sherry, topped with a
custard and red gelatin,
chilled and served with
whipped cream.
In America, a trifle is
made in a trifle bowl.
Layered with fresh and
canned fruits, cake, pudding
and cream, a trifle is a
delight to behold and ajoy
to the palate.
You can also change it for
an almost totally fat and
cholesterol-free dessert. You
can't taste the difference. I
use fat-free whipped
topping instead of whipped
cream because it holds up
better, and evaporated skim
milk, undiluted, in the
. pudding.
I also prefer ladyfingers to
cake. You can get them in
the supermarket; we want
the dry ones, not the soft
ones sold in the bakery.

Two four serving pack-
ages of vanilla pudding
(cook and serve)
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon brandy or rum
extract (optional)
2 packages ladyfingers
1-1/2 cups heavy cream
or 3 cups whipped
topping
1 pint strawberries
2 bananas
One 15-1/2 ounce can
sliced peaches
3 kiwi
Sliced almonds, toasted

The night before, prepare
pudding using the 3 cups'
milk. Add the brandy or rum
extract to make chantilly
cream. Chill.
Next morning, whip the
cream (heavy cream doubles
when whipped) or add
whipped topping to pud-
ding. Whisk until well
blended.
Wash and hull strawber-
ries. Reserve 6, and slice the
rest from the point down.
Drain peaches, peel and
slice bananas and kiwi.
Assemble the trifle by
putting a layer of ladyfingers
(split) on the bottom of the
bowl and arranged upright,
spaced about 1-2 inches
apart, around the side. Add


FAT-FREE PEACH
COBBLER

Use spice cake mix and'
peach pie filling, using the

with cherry pie filling, using

able for delivery here is Chi-
nese and pizza and he was
right."
After doing some research
on the restaurant and fast
food industry in Port St.
Lucie, Mr. Caprio learned
the ropes by working nights
and weekends at' Chicken
Galore, a pick up and deliv-
-ery place in New Jersey.
"In the beginning, I was
nervous, but we were ready
for it, ready to try something
new," said Mrs. Caprio.
So far, they've seen
diverse groups patronizing
the restaurant, from local
families to commercial
businesses, because of the
location, centered on Port
St. Lucie Boulevard and in.
close proximity to many
commercial businesses. It's
also convenient to residen-
tial Areas.
Mrs. Caprio, who takes
care of much of the market-
ing and community events,
spoke to area schools and is
delighted to now be work-


ing with two school lunch
programs for Morningside
Academy.
"The kids love the food.
We decided to be health-.
conscious and have roasted
.chicken tenders instead of
* fried," said Mrs. Caprio.
Other schools have asked
for assistance with their
food programs, but for the
time being, they can't com-
mit to another- program
until they know 100 percent
they can get the job done
right.
"We want to grow a stable
business and give consis-
tently good food and serv-
ice," said Mr. Caprio. "We
are still getting the kinks out
of the armor. We work from
our mistakes. We want-
everyone's opinion (good or
bad) and we simply want to
improve on the things we
have."
Port St. Lucie's Vice
Mayor, Jack Kelly, is a sup-
porter and has helped get
the word out, says Mr.
Caprio. He also frequents
the restaurant with his fam-
ily.
The most popular items
on the menu are chicken
tenders, ribs, wraps, salads
and chili. The Caprios plan
to add more items to the
children's menu and offer
new freshly, squeezed
lemonade.
Their delivery range is
broad, from as far away as
Jensen Beach and Stuart.
"I see us possibly opening
up more locations one day,"
said Mr. Caprio. "However,
Port St. Lucie was the per-
fect place to open first. I
love the people, the area
and we've seen it built up
nicely over the years. Over-
all, I think this will be a
great partnership."

look back atMartin County'history


By Donald Rodrigue
Rodrigue@hometownnewsol.com
he first residents to
occupy what is now
known as Martin
County came long before,
the masses lured by real
estate speculators of the
;arly 1920s land bo6m.
"Brothers Hubert and'
Willis Bessey were two of
Wthe very first settlers ..to
=take a claim in the area,
arriving in Florida from
Ohio in 1882 when they
were 26 and 23. years old,
respectively. They original-
ly planned to farm citrus
near Ormond, but decided
to head farther south after
hearing about successful
pineapple plantations.
SThe two traveled down
the Indian River, past its
confluence with the St.
Lucie .River, sailing down
the latter until they found
the perfect spot to begin
their pineapple plantation.
The brothers constructed
what is believed to be the.
area's first permanent
wooden home on a piece
of land lying just south-
west of today's soaring
Roosevelt Bridge, which is
still known as Bessey Point
to this day.
Not far away, two. other
*


brothers, German immi-
grants Otto and Ernest
Stypman, soon arrived and
began the thriving little St..
Lucie river town of Pots-
dam, which they named
after their native home-
town.
.Along with the Bessey
and Stypman brothers,
other early residents
included the Gardner
brothers on Hutchinson
Island and Homer. Hine
Stuart Jr. on the north side
of the St. Lucie River.
The Bessey brothers
began the region's love
affair with the pineapple,
but Hubert also became
known for designing and
building sailboats, which
he used to both supple-
ment their income and get
the fruit to market.
Herbert abandoned the
plantation after Willis
returned to Ohio in 1894,
-moving to Hutchinson
Island to completely dedi-
cate himself to his' boat
business.
He soon took the posi-
tion of keeper, of' .the
Gilbert's Bar House of
Refuge, one of the many
havens for shipwrecked
sailors built by the U.S.
Treasury Department
along Florida's east coast.


Pineapple farming would
still thrive for a season,
however.
Capt. Thomas E.
Richards was one of the
first of many settlers up
and down the Indian River
to follow the Bessey broth-
er's example and grow
pineapples. His plantation
was near the home he built
in 1879 called Eden, the
name he gave his little bit
of paradise. A few years
later in 1881, the Dane
Laurence Jensen would
found his pineapple plan-
tation on the spot ,that
would one day be known
as Jensen Beach and
referred to by locals as the
"pineapple capital of the
world."
When Henry, Flagler's
Florida East Coast Railroad
line finally reached Pots-
dam in 1894, it provided
growers with a faster way
to ship their produce. Dur-
ing July and August, more
than 1 million boxes of
fruit were shipped every
year.
The Treasure Coast's
pineapple capital would
soon fall, however, due to
the double whammy of a
hard freeze in 1895 and
raging fires in 1908 and
1910. ,

The few remaining plan-

of the pineapples were
replaced by citrus and
other crops by 1920. The
fruit will always be king for
Jensen Beach residents, as

businesses and an annual

Era of fr

By Alice L. Luckhardt
For Hometown News
Being a lawman in most
/areas of Florida in the first
two decades of the 20th cen-
tury has been compared to
being a lawman in the old
Wild West. Most sections of
Florida after The Great War
and especially into the 1920s
with Prohibition were wide-
open unpopulated areas
with mahy rivers and. sur-
rounded by the Atlantic
Ocean and the Gulf of Mexi-
co. A lawman had to use
ever ounce of his good judg-
ment along with physical
strength to maintain some
sense of community order.
Florida was America's
newest frontier in the open-
ing decades of the 20th cen-
tury and there were individ-
uals; smugglers, robbers and
moonshiners, ready to take
advantage, legally or illegally,
as Florida started to grow.
One such lawman was
Oren B. Padgett, known as
"0. B.", a native son of Flori-
da, raised in Taylor County.
After serving in the Florida
Home Guard during World
War. One, he sought adven-
ture and a new life in Okee-
chobee and Palm Beach
counties (which included
the Stuart area .in the early
1920s). He worked con-
: struction paving roads,
building the Conners Toll
Road east of Lake Okee-
chobee and building the C-
44 lock and dam along the St.
Lucie Canal. Being so close
to the towns of Okeechobee
and Stuart, he got to know
the residents in these small
'communities.
Through an acquaintance.
0. B. met Wesley and Mary
<(Ashley) Mobley of the.
Gomez area, south of Stuart.
Mary was the sister of the
already notorious outlaw,
John H. Ashley. The Ashley
Gang by the early 1920s was
part of the ruthless robbers
and murderers plaguing
Florida, especially up and
down the southeast coast.
Jdhn Ashldy-was their self-
II declared leader with several
family members also part of


ontier lawman


the Gang, including a young
nephew named Hanford
Mobley (son of Wesley and
Mary Mobley). The Gang
had always managed to
escape from whatever prison
or road camp held them. So
during the 1920 to 1924 peri-
od they were involved with
bank robbery, taking illegal
liquor from rumrunners,
moonshining, stealing autos
and overall frightening the
communities along the
coast.
Over a course of several
months, Padgett was a wel-
comed dinner guest to both
the Mobley and Ashley
homesteads. The only indi-
vidual he never met was
John Ashley, who was either
hiding out or in jail some-
where. Padgett found these
families to, be very hos-
pitable, pleasant and an
intelligent group of individu-
als. 0. B. especially like,
Hanford Mobley,. who was
about 17 years old. As 0. B.
once wrote, "They were very
down to earth, simple peo-
ple, 'Cracker Floridians', hard
working but with a danger-
ous side, one you did not
want to have angry at you",
just like the people he grew
up with in Taylor County.
He also made friends with
several local lawmen and in
turn became increasingly
interested in law enforce-
ment. Eventually he applied
and" was accepted as a
deputy for the, Sheriff's
Department in-Palm Beach
County. In the early 1920s,
S.tuart was still part of Palm
Beach" County and the new
county of Martin, with Stuart
as its county seat, would not
be created until mid-1925.
0. B. was an imposing
sight in his uniform, stand-
ing 6 feet 4 inches tall,
weighing about 190 pounds;
he was strong and not afraid
of anything or anyone. He
was even .given the nick-
name "high pockets" due to
his height; Having only a
high school 'education in
Taylor County, he began his
own self educauon 'by read-
"[fig and collecting all r.pes of
books. He wanted to know


as much as possible about
science, nature, history and
the world around him.
Ownership of guns was
important as well, especially
being from the woods of Tay-
lor County. Oren collected
various types of guns,
revolvers and rifles. Several
of which he had his initials,
"O.B.P" placed on the han-
dle.
His new job as a deputy
serving in the Stuart area was
exciting to Oren. Each day
there was always something
unusual and different, after
all, this was the new 'frontier
of Florida'.
Oren was so meticulous to
duty; he made a huge
impression on Palm Beach
County Sheriff Robert "Bob"
C. Baker. When the Stuart
City Marshal's 'position
became vacant he encour-
aged Oren to apply. It had
become available after C.
Floyd Tyson resigned as Mar-
shal on May 22, 1924. Oren
jumped at the opportunity,
.applied and was appointed
by the Stuart Council on May
29,1924. He was sworn in as
the new City Marshal of Stu-
art (the title was later
changed from City Marshal
to Chief of Police) on June 1,
1924. At the age of 26, he was
now possibly the youngest
Chief of Police in Florida.
Part of this new job was
keeping a watchful eye on
the dealings of the Ashley
Gang. As a Deputy he had
already had several incidents
in attempting to apprehend
the elusive outlaws. When
not in pursue of the Ashley
Gang, Chief Padgett had to
deal with all types of crimi-
nals. His philosophy was to
try to outsmart them .and if
necessary use his own physi-
cal strength. He felt he really
didn't need to violently beat
up or 'shoot a man to capture
them. There were plenty of
tough guys he came up
against, most more than
willing to shoot a lawman.
Padgett stated, "To be a good
officer,,.a person must work
hard;- have nerves of steel
Sand plenty of guts, and I had
all these."

This badge was worn by Chief Padgett in 1926 when hel
was Stuart's chief of police.


He was fired at over 18
times, including shots firedW
from a moving vehicle by
John Ashley. O0. B. Padgett
had always been a good shot,
classified as the most accu-
rate in town and ,carried a
Colt .45 automatic and Colt
.38 most of the time. Still,
Padgett never shot back to
kill any of those men; he
never wanted to be responsi-
ble for someone's death and
by his own statement never
did kill anyone.
To assist Padgett-he called
on Newton Chase and Law-
son Zeigler of Stuart to be
police officers. 0. B. always
referred to the two men as
the finest, bravest and most
honest men. . ,
The Ashley Gang (ordered
by John while he was still in
jail) made their second rob-


bery of-the Stuart Bank,ini'
September 1924 (first one on4
February 23, 1915). It was
Hanford Mobley who
dressed in women'sclothing :
as the Gang surprised the.'
tellers and made off with the It
cash. Then the Palm Beach '
Sheriff Robert "Bob" Baker I
and 'his posse, including 1
Padgett, chased the Gang for -
some 265 miles. A posse ,
member, Deputy Sheriff i
Morris R. Johns from Stuart,,
was so e'.hausted from the
pursuit; he died days later
from an" acute indigestive
attack .

HORSELESS CARRIAGE

hit sights several miles to
,th southwest of Stuart in
odler to take the steam
oit of Henry Flagler's
< pals and create his own
destination: Indiantown.
Mr. Warfield was run-
ring his railroad from
Central Florida to West
Palm Beach through the
fledging community then
known as Bowers Groves.
He soon bought huge
tracks of land and
renamed the area
Indiantown, which would
be the southern headquar-
ters of his railway.
One of his lasting land-
marks is the Seminole Inn,
which he opened in 1927
and still welcomes guests
today as a bed and break-
fast.
His grandiose plans came
to an end with his death,
and the Great Depression
that followed ensured it


would be many years
before the development'
company that purchased
his holdings, the
Indiantown Company,,
would find an interest in
further development.
Back on the East Coast,
Stuart residents were fum-
ing over the fact that the
county seat, then Palm
Beach, was short-changing
them inroad bond money.
In 1925, the town
received only $250,000 of
$6 million in bonds for
county-wide roads.
The citizens of Stuart
began a push to found
their own county. They
sent a petition with 3,200
signatures to the Florida
Legislature in Tallahassee
on May 7, 1925, which
called for incorporating a
new county. It was accom-
panied by a delegation of
local officials lobbying rep-
resentatives on their
behalf.
It all proved useless until
they promised incumbent


Gov. John Welborn Martin
that they would baptize the
new county with his name.
With his backing, the Sen-
ate passed the bill paving
the way for the creation of
Martin County on May 28,
1925. A subsequent refer-
endum was held, with a
majority of areas residents
approving the change.
Martin County became
official on Aug. 5, 1925, its
boundaries carved out of
both Palm Beach and St.
Lucie counties.
Stuart, which-had incor-
porated in 1914, was
selected as the county seat,
to the chagrin of Mr
Warfield, who was arguing
at the time for Indiantown
to play that pivotal role.
Stuart officials erected.
the Stuart welcome arch in
1926 to commemorate the
formation of Martin
County.
The historical arch was
restored to its original
appearance in November
2006.


Lawman
From page 2,
deputies. It started with a tip
Padgett had received from
an informant. O. B. knew for
years George Meriot, a
brother-in-law of John Ash-
ley. The early morning of
November 1, 1924, while
George was in Stuart loading
his Ford touring car with
supplies from a store, he told
0. B. that John and three of
the Gang were leaving the
area that night, driving up
the coast to Jacksonville, hid-
ing out at John's sister,
Daisy's house and then
heading west to California.
There had been the sugges-
tion over the years that John
Ashley's girlfriend, Laura
Upthegrove, was the inform-
ant, giving her tip to Deputy
Sheriff Elmer.
Padgett, who told Sheriff
Baker, because she was
upset at being left behind. 0.
B. Padgett claimed he was
given that inside knowledge
by George Meriot.
Chief Padgett immediate-
ly contacted Palm Beach
Sheriff Bob Baker and let
him know of the informa-
tion. Baker told Padgett he
would send up immediately
Deputies L. B. Thomas,
Henry Stubbs and Elmer
Padgett. The four met in
Stuart to develop a plan to
capture the Ashley Gang.
One idea was stopping them
at the north bridge over the
St. Lucie River in Stuart, but
that wouldn't work, the
Gang was still in familiar
territory and would be on
guard for anything suspi-
cious.
It was decided they need-
ed to go to Fort Pierce and
bring in Sheriff John R. Mer-
ritt. After meeting with the
St. Lucie Sheriff, it was sug-
gested by Merritt that the
best location for a capture
was the Sebastian Bridge
over the Sebastian. Inlet.
Merritt called in two addi-
tional men as his deputies,
0. E. Wiggins and Ft. Pierce
Chief J. M. Smith, to join the
group and they drove in two
cars north to the Sebastian
Inlet. After reaching the
bridge a chain was strung


across the south entrance
with a red lantern hung on
the chain in the center, so
any traffic had to stop.
Sheriff Merritt and L. B.
Thomas drove across the
bridge and hid their cars
then walked back across the
bridge to join the others.
They hid in the high grass
and weeds along the road
approaching the bridge.
The moment finally
arrived around 10:30 p.m.
when first a car with two
youths from Sebastian were
stopped and then motioned
quickly across the bridge.
Then right behind a Ford
touring car drove up to
about fifteen feet of the red
lantern and stopped. At that
instant, six automatic shot
guns were aimed right at the
occupant's heads. Deputy L.
B. Thomas came up on the
right side, took his flashlight
and peered in, explaining,
"There's John Ashley sitting
there; look at his one eye,
that's him!" Sheriff Merritt
opened the front door of the
auto and ordered the first
man, John C. Middleton, on
the right side of the car to
get out. They all had their
hands up in the air. After
Middleton was out, Thomas
searched him thoroughly,
found no weapon on him
and then handcuffed him.
Thomas reached into the
car, pulled out two pistols,
one rifle and handed them
to Chief O. B. Padgett.
Next, in the back seat,
John Ashley was told to slide
out of the car at which time
Thomas retrieved a .38
revolver out of a home-
made deerskin holster John
was wearing. After he was
out of the car, Ashley was
searched and handcuffed
then lined up in front of the
car. The remaining two,
Hanford Mobley (driver of
the car) and Ray Lynn, had
the same procedure done
after getting out of the car,
they were searched and
handcuffed, all the while as
four deputies had their guns
trained on the outlaws'
every move. Ashley was
handcuffed separately while
the other three were hand-
cuffed together with
instructions for none of
them to move a muscle.


Sheriff Merritt took the
chain down, then he and
Thomas walked back across
the bridge to get their adto-
mobiles and drove back
over to park in front of the
bandits' car. Merritt called
to 0. B. to bring over the
confiscated weapons so
they could be placed in his
car. As Chief Padgett head-
ed towards the vehicle he
heard Henry Stubbs suggest
to Elmer Padgett; "Enmer, do
you want to kill John?"
Elmer said, "Might as well
and get it all over with."
In a calm manner to the
immediate probability of
being killed right there, John
Ashley requested something
to drink and then permis-
sion to remove his hat As
he reached up to take his hat
off, apparently all four
deputies fired at the same
time at the bandits. All four
were killed with five loads of
12 gauge buckshot in each
bandit as observed by 0. B.
Padgett. Sheriff Merritt, L.
B. Thomas nor 0. B: fired a
weapon. The majoritytofthe
Ashley Gang was now histo-
ry.
There was a coroner's
investigation and a coto-
ner's jury about John Ashley
and his three companions
being killed by the Sheriffs
posse. Chief Padgett was
never able to testify at the -
hearing because he had
come down with acute indi-
gestion due to eating some
spoiled hamburger meat.
The final ruling was.justifi-
able homicide since the
deputies' statements all
affirmed that the Gang had
tried to escape.
A major chapter of out-
laws and frontier lawmen in
the 1920s along the 'reasute
Coast was now closed. One
not soon forgotten by those
involved and from which
legends are created.

NOTE: A book was written
byAlice L Luckhardt, titled;
"0. B. Padgett-A Florida
Son", detailing Padgett's
extraordinary life. Copies of

STUART Cooke's Envi-
ronmental Services can
look back on more than 50
years of helping Treasure
Coast residents properly
treat waste water, but the
company also has an eye
focused on protecting the
environment in the future
as well.
It's not everyday you cel-
ebrate a half century of
business, but Cooke's Envi-
ronmental Services is not
just any company.
Founded in 1958 by for-
mer Stuart Mayor Sam
Cooke, the firm has been
helping non-sewer-con-
ndcted;'-humrnes and busi-

water flowing in Martin
County and much of the
Treasure Coast for five
decades.
Today the company serv-
ices customers in Palm
Beach, St. Lucie, Martin
and Okeechobee counties
under the guiding hand of
Stu Lamb, a Massachusetts
native who took over the
firm five years ago after
finding retirement a little
too slow.for him.
. Formerly a road contrac-
tor in the heavy construc-
tion industry, Mr. Lamb
relocated to Stuart'in 1997
and today adds his years of
construction experience to
Cooke's storied legacy.
"We go anywhere that we
-can provide the service'for
septic and put in the infra-
structure for sewer
hookups," he said. "We
also have a DEP-approved
wastewater receiving sta-
tion onsite, so that other
companies that go around
collect septic materials can
deposit them here."


Founded in 1958 by former Stuart Mayo.,
Sam Cooke, the, firm has been helping non1
sewer-connected homes and businesses keep
the wastewater flowing in Martin County and
much of the Treasure Coast for five decades.


When installing new

In additioh,-Mr. Lamb is
now focusing on the fu ture

his latest project, a high- '
tech processing plant that
converts used fryer oil into
a "diesel-type" fuel suitable
for automobiles and trucks
that have been converted
to its use. In the works for
more- than a year, the
5,000-square-foot facility
has come online within the
last couple of months.
Mr. Lamb "is excited
about the technology that's.

"Because the price of

decided to create my owq

"It's an environmentally
friendly and green fuel that
. we call'viesel.'"
In order to get the "raw

sells it about 20 percent

"This is about taking

making something else out
of it," he said. "It's got very

The Pine School: 40 years of independent education


By Pat Austin
Fpr Hometown News
In 1969, a group of citi-
zens led by Harold Pots-
dam started a small
school in a wooded resi-
dential area of Stuart for
the education, as Potsdam
said, "6of our children and
our children's children."
He ga ned it The Pine
School and started it with
64 students. Eventually
the school changed its
name to' St. Michael's,
established a reputation
for its strong academic
program, and returned to


its original Pine School
name in 2006.
Forty years later, The
Pine School is an inde-
pendent, college-prepara-
tory school for children
from Early Learning
through grade 12, with an
enrollment of 510 and two
campuses: the original
one in Stuart and a 143-
acre campus in. Hobe
Sound.
In June 2009, 'the first
students to graduate from
an independent high
school in Martin County
will receive their diplomas
from The Pine School.

Hobe Sound has
long, storied
history
By Donald Rodrigue
Rodrigue@hometownnewsol.com
HOBE SOUND When
the British-flagged Refor-
mation sank just north of
the Jupiter Inlet in 1696,
near what is now modern-
day Hobe Sound, its pas-
sengers and crew did not
clamber ashore on a bar-
ren, deserted isle.
Rather, they were wel-
comed by the friendly
members of two tribes of
Native Americans, the
Tekestas and Jobes. The
Spanish explorers pro-
nounced their name
"Hobay"' from which the
town's name would even-
tually be derived.
Hobe Sound has been
welcoming visitors with
open arms ever since,
while constantly evolving
in the process.
Approximately 12,000
acres in the region were
granted to Don Eusebio
Gomez by Spain in 1815,
which is why you can still
a sign designating the
Gomez community just
north of Bridge Road on
Dixie Highway.
It was the arrival of
Henry Flagler's railroad at
the turn of the 19th centu-
ry, however, that would
forever put Hobe Sound
on the map.
By the 1920s, a compa-
ny called the Olympia
Improvement Corpora-
tion had a vision of creat-
ing a Greek-themed city
to become an East Coast
film capital to rival the
Hollywood studios.. The
company put up elabo-
rate concrete light poles
along Dixie Highway, bap-
tized most of the city
streets with Greek names
and briefly renamed the
town "Picture City," but all
of-it came crashing down
with the 1928 hurricane.
Through it all, new
immigrants continued to
arrive, many coming from
the north to start a new
life.
One of those was
African-American Willie
: Pettway, who came .to
Gomez in 1909. In the
1920s, he built the first
grocery store for his wife,
Mattie Mae, so she could
work and still care for the
couple's 14 children. After
'a hurricane 'blew away
That business, he began
the new Pettway Grocery-
store" at the corner of
Dixie Highway and
Pettway Street, which has
been in continual opera-
tion since the early 1940s.
Today, the store is still
run by one of his daugh-
ters, Annie Mae Pettway,
who recalls in the early
Says how easy it was for
the residents of Hobe
Sound to get around by
public transportation.
"We used to have pas-
senger trains," she said.
"You used to couldhgo to
Stuart, Miami, you name
i." ,
Earlier this year, Hobe
Sound artist Dan Mackin
offered his talents to cre-
ate one of his Caribbean-
themed murals on the
south wall of the histori-
cal business.
"That mural has really
increased my business,"
Ms. Pettway says. "Since
they put it up, I get lots of


sinesses


ties


people who stop by and
ask about it, and they usu-
ally buy something." ,
Brother and sister Philip
and Elaihe Algozzini also
boast a ,long history in
Hobe Sound, having first
come to West Palm Beach
with their parents, Nick
and Vera Algozzini, in
1945. Philip wgs 17 and
Elaine was 14.
Two years later, they
were living in a 15-footf
trailer in Hobe Sound,
clearing off a 20-acre plot
purchased atthe height of
the Florida land boom.
"We worked, like mules,"
Mr. Algozzini said.
The same year, they
inaugurated in open-air
restaurant to cater to the'
motoring pubic.
"It was sinply called i
'Eat,'" Mr. Altozzini said.-
"That's the oily sign We
had up for a ling time." '
By the timehe shipped-

1950, his faithe had built'
a few cabins fo: overnight
guests and adled a gas-
station. The fanrily started
selling seashells and'
carved coconut to the,
tourists, while -daughter_
Elaine ran the new snack,
bar. .
By 1954, the Algozzinis.,
had closed the original
restaurant and moved
into a largetbuilding, let-)
ting daughter Elaine run,
the new snack bar.
When Phiip returned-
* from his stinmin the Navy-
in 1957, the fanrily started'
its citrus-shilping busi-
ness and his another had
begun selling dresses
made by a brt Laud-
erdale seamstres known
as Peggy by theSea. The
clothing line wasa hit.
"There were 1o other
clothing stores round,"
Elaine Algozzin said.
"When women cane here
and found: out sie was
selling dresses, they
would buy two or tree."
It was the family vaca-
tion to Hawaii in 197 that
would forever change the
nature of the business,
however.
Vera Algozzini (ahe
back with a few Haw ian
dresses that sold like lot-
cakes, and the busirtss
was on a roll.
"From 1957 to 1985, ve
went every year in Sel.
tember to buy clothli
when they had the. bit
trade shows, Mr. Algozzini
said.
The brother and sister
still run the family busi-
ness today, aided by
Elaine Algozzini's grown
daughters Roxanne and
Dolly. Mr. Algozzini, now
78, is a walking, encyclo-
pedia of information
about early Hobe Sound
and the surrounding area.
He can tell you when Stu-
art was, the chrysanthe-
mum capital of the world
and where the Chinese
farmed vegetables west of
Hobe Sound.
And Algozzini's is still
evolving.
By this fall, the family
plans to, add tropical,
fruit-flavored wines made
in Florida to the eclectic
mix of Hawaiian clothing,
souvenirs, 'fruit shipping
and travel services.

Heritage Museum a slice of bygone Stuart


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
Tucked away at the end of Flagler
Avenue in downtown Stuart is a small
wood frame building, built in 1901, that
is one of the last of its kind remaining on
the'southeast coast of Florida.
Once the George W Parks General
Merchandise Store, today it houses the
Stuart Heritage Museum, which seeks to
preserve local history and document
the life of the area in a simpler time.
Chris Sawicki, president of the Muse-
um, and DougArbeau, a volunteer, took
me around the building to see some of
the more than 10,000 artifacts, many of
them donated by pioneer families,
which showv what life was like when
pineapple was the main industry and
the railroad came to town.
"The land here was all virgin forest
when thesettlers got here," Mr. Arbeau
said.
"The store was made from Dade
County Pine. Big companies harvested
the woo d it. was all cleared for the
pineapple fields. Pineapples needed 500
pounds, of fertilizer per acre, and many
homesteaders had 160 acres; that was a
lot of fertilizer. George Parks became a
Gulf Oil distributor and saddle wheelers,


would come, bringing oil productss"
Bad freezes and competition from
Cuba spelled the end of the pineapple
industry by the end of World War I and
flowers became the next big product.
At one time, Stuart was the Winter
Chrysanthemum capital of the world,
but again, competition from abroad
doomed the industry.
Stuart still had a claim" to fame,
though, as the fishing industry thrived
and gave it the title of Sailfish capital of
the world.
Stuart Heritage was founded in 1988
because some residents felt that there
was not enough being done to preserve
local history. The organization moved
into the store in 1992.
There is one employee, Sally Glass-
bum, who serves as the museum's
manager; otherwise, it is almost entire-
ly a volunteer effort and depends on
memberships, donations and the pro-
ceeds from the annual house tour to
keep it going.
Some of the collectibles have been
donated; others were the result of
Serendipity. That includes the re-cre-
ation of an old Rexall's drug store and
ice cream parlor. *
"It was put out for trash," Ms. Sawicki
said.
"We picked it up even though we had


no building. It stayed outside some-
one's home until we had a place. Our
long-time acquisitions chair, Catharine
Lewis, ferreted out a lot of things, find-
ing out when collectors were getting rid
of them.
"Once they found out about us, they
often brought them to us. Almost
everyone who has lived here more than
.20-years has donated a yearbook. We
never know when or where items will
come from, but we're always thrilled."
In addition to the re-created drug
store, the museum has a miniature dio-
rama, made to scale, depicting Stuart's
first business area at the turn of the
century, tools from pineapple planta-
tions, store fixtures, early hand-made'.
clothing, Seminole dress, photography
collections including a photo of a 1954
high school trip- to Havana, Cuba,
scrapbooks, maps and volumes of early
'county records. There is also a gift shop
that features regional products and
books about the area.
The Stuart Heritage Museum is
located at 161 S.W Flagler Ave., in Stu-
art. It is open Monday-Saturday from
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There is no admission charge, but
donations are welcome. Call (772) 220-
4600.

From page 5
Martin Memorial's
planned 80-bed hospital on
a 20-acre site in the Tradi-
tion development in west-
ern St. Lucie County is still
awaiting a judge's decision
after the need for the facility
was challenged by another
area medical organization.
If allowed to proceed, it
'would be located next to the
Torrey Pines Institute for
Molecular Studies and
eventually create 400 jobs.
Mr. Harman will also pass
the Martin Memorial lead-
ership baton this year. After
33 years with the hospital
system, serving as chief
executive officer since 1989,,


he will turn over the reins to
Mark Robitaille, who has
served as senior vice presi-
dent and chief operating
officer since 1991.
The medical system's
aforementioned cuts were
just one symptom of the
area's rising unemployment.
Martin County's unem-
ployment rate has risen in
tandem with the economic
downturn, from 6.3 last June
to 7.1 in July, and up from
4.9 percent a year ago.
.The county's unemploy-
ment is still lower than
neighboring St. Lucie Coun-
ty's 9.5 percent, which rose
from 6.9 last year.
Indian River County's
unemployment for July was
9.2 percent.

Carn you dour faily

for you d'your family


since


1939


For 69 years, Martin Memorial has been a fixture in the community.
It has been the place people trust with their most precious commodity -
their health and that of their families -for generations of Martin and
St. Lucie County residents.


Then (1939)
* 23-bed Martin County Hospital
* Three founding physicians, Dr. Julian D. Parker,
Dr. Van William Burns and Dr. Walter F. Davey
* Cared for an average of eight patients per day
* The average cost of an office visit was $2
* Average cost for a house call.Was $5
* Mr. and Mrs. William B. Slocum Barstow provided the
land and building for the original hospital and
nurses' home
* Mrs. Verner Z. Reed and Mr. Joseph V. Reed provided
all furnishings and equipment
* The hospital was founded on the principles that
patients should have access to medical treatment
regardless of ability to pay, and treatment would be
given to all people, regardless of race


Now (2008)
* A multi-faceted, state-of-the-art health care system
* 344 beds between two hospitals
* 12 total locations
* Nearly 400 physicians on staff
* 2,900 Associates caring for thousands of patients
each year
* Offering advanced care in cancer treatment, includ-
ing cutting edge clinical trials that are available to

* Providing outstanding care for heart disease, includ-
ing open-heart surgery and cardiac catheterizations
* Certified as a primary stroke center with
technologically sophisticated diagnostic tools that
can help detect and treat disease.
* Providing medical fitness to patients and clients

Received the certificate of need to build a hospital in
St. Lucie West and pursuing the appeal
Renovating St. Lucie West facility to create the
Martin Memorial Emergency Center at St. Lucie West,
located in Martin Memorial's existing facility at
1095 N.W. St. Lucie West Blvd.

-Much has changed at Martin Memorial since it began as a sleepy little hospital on the banks of the St. Lucie
River. But one thing that hasn't changed is the commitment and the dedication to the people who come through
Martin Memorials doors.
The original guiding principles ofMartin County Hospital remain the same mission at Martin Memorial today:
access to quality healthcare for everyone in the community, delivered with compassion, pride and a caring spirit.
