Pair's bond set,

MARTIN COUNTY -
Florida's chief financial
officer isn't saying
whether she'll recom-
mend, additional charges
against a Jensen: Beach
pastor and
his wife
charged
with real
estate fraud.
But a
spokesper-
son for Alex R
Sink says her Rodney
-office has McGill
fielded more
than 100
calls from f
people
claiming to
have fallen
victim to
Rodney and
Shalonda Shalonda
McGill.
Ms. Sink McGill
oversees the -
state's Department of
Financial Services, which
investigates financial
fraud.
Arid in that role, she
called for new charges
against the Jensen Beach
couple, tacking an addi-
tional $500,000 to their'
bond.
This brings the bond to
$1.73 million each for Mr.
and Mrs. McGill, who
both remain at the Mar-
tin - County
Jail.
"The investigation is
ongoing, but there's no
other information at this
time," confirmed Jayme
O'Rouke of Ms. Sink's Tal-
lahassee press office.
Martin County officials
arrested the McGills last
September on charges
that they had defrauded
Central and South Flori-
da investors of more than
$8 million in sham real
estate deals.
Charges against them
include first-degree rack-
eteering, first-degree

MARTIN COUNTY - Florid4 Power &
Light Company is gearing to switch to
large-scale solar use with a new plant
planned for Indiantown.
Billed as the world's first hybrid plant,
the Martin Next Generation Solar Energy
Center is set to be fully operational by
2010.
It combines natural gas with energy
from the sun, instead of relying solely on
fossil fuels to generate electricity, officials


said.
And with gas prices
recently hitting record highs, the plant is a
step toward easing Florida's reliance on
petroleum, FPL and public officials said.
"This solar facility is a significant step in
that direction," said Florida Gov. Charlie
Crist in a press release. "Florida's future
growth and economic strength depends
on how we address climate change, and
we know we can reduce greenhouse gases

MARTIN COUNTY - Paris, a 3-year-old
hackney pony, strolls leisurely with her colt,
Logan, just weeks old, but already enjoying a'
second chance at life.
The pair is among the newest beneficiaries
of the Equine Rescue and Adoption Founda-
tion, a Palm City group that has rescued them
from death's door,
Without rescue, the horses were likely to
have ended up on the plates of patrons of an
illegal Miami slaughterhouse, where officials
found them about three weeks ago.
"Sad, isn't it?" asked Daryl Tropea, president
of the Equine Rescue and Adoption Founda-
tion, a nonprofit that has found homes for
more than 80 horses and helped countless

The Treasure Coast's
recent version of Friday
Night Lights was a perfect
example of why the games
are played on .the field and
not on paper.
Coming into . the
matchups, both Vero Beach
and Fort Pierce Westwood
seemed to have an edge
over its opponent, each
playing its semifinal con-


test at home.
South Fork, the high
school version of the 2007
New York Giants, was on
the road yet again, this time
facing an undefeated
Atlantic team that had
beaten them earlier in the
year in Stuart.
However, when the final
whistle sounded it was
South Fork still standing
while Vero Beach and West-
wood's seasons each came
to a disappointing end. But


just a week later, South Fork
would find itself on the los-
ing end of a contest against
St. Thomas Aquinas.
"This is the biggest win
we've ever had," South Fork
head coach Dennis Lavelle
said. "We've gone further
than we ever had at the
school."
Like South Fork had done
a week earlier in its quarter-
final road matchup with
Palm Bay, the Bulldogs
scored first, getting a 37-


yard touchdown passofrom
Ronnie Nelson to Jason
Thompson.
"He had a huge game,'"
Lavelle said of Nelson. "He
runs the whole show. He's
like a point guard.
"He just pulls the trigger."
After Atlantic had pulled
even, South Fork's Willie
Walker took over, scoring
on runs of 3 and 14 yards.
"He carried us," Lavelle
said. "They had no answer

From page Al
others in the last eight
years.
Her group rescued six
horses from the slaughter-
house, and plans to save.
two more in coming weeks.
The animals were among
400 that Miami Dade Ani-
mal Services officials found
during a sting in October.
The seizure uncovered 20
horses and hundreds of
farm animals, including
donkeys, goats and chick-
ens, awaiting slaughter.
"These horses were being
slaughtered for meat, but
the worst thing is that they
were all young," Ms. Tropea
said.
But the Miami case is not
an isolated incident,


according to the Animal
Welfare Institute, a Wash-
ington, D.C.-based advoca-
cy group.
Last year, slaughter-
houses in Texas and Illinois
slew more than 100,000, the
institute said.
But efforts to stop using
horses for meat have gained
momentum.
In September, the House
Judicial Committee passed
a measure that bans eating
horse meat in the U.S. or
exporting it to other coun-
tries.
But lobbyists say that U.S:
operations continue to
export about 20,000 horses
per year to slaughterhouses
in Canada and Mexico.
And the slump in the U.S.
economy is encouraging the
practice, they said.
When gas prices shot up
this year, the cost of hay and
feed followed, as did black-
smith fees and other
expenses.
Record foreclosures on
the Treasure Coast and
around the country meant
that many horse owners no
longer could afford to keep
or house their animals.
"If it comes down to it,
people would rather feed
their families than feed a
horse," Ms. Tropea said.
"And if people lose their


homes, it's easier to take a
dog or cat than a 1,200-
pound animal."
The Equine Rescue and
Adoption Foundation takes
about five or six calls from
people forced to give up
their horses, she added.
To help meet the need,
the group plans to hold a
fundraiser on Jan. 22, It
hopes to raise at least
$5,000 with an international
wine tasting event that's set
to feature appetizers and
wine from several coun-
tries, plus a raffle for origi-
nal art and a live auction.
Tickets are priced at $50
and include music and
dancing at Taste restaurant
in historic downtown Hobe
Spund.
Restaurant proprietor
Craig Kingston applauded
the venture.
"It's important to do
things like this to help the
local area," he said.
The effort is aimed at pro-
viding rehabilitation care
for horses and finding
homes for abandoned,
abused and neglected ani-
mals.
"We pretty much deal
with the most unwanted of
the abused horses," Ms. Tro-
pea said.
To volunteer or adopt a
horse, call (772) 220-0150.

Don't count her out of politics

Former Rep. Gayle Harrell talks about past, future possibilities


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
Don't expect former
State Rep. Gayle Harrell to
fade from the public eye.
After her unsuccessful
run for Congress, Mrs.
Harrell, a Republican from
Jensen Beach, said she's
considering a future run
for her old seat, as well as
one for State Sen. Ken
Pruitt's position in 2010.
And even if she doesn't
choose those options, she
said, she will continue
being involved in the com-
munity because she enjoys
helping people.
"I am looking at all
options." she said. "God
doeJ n close a dooL: h.-


Gayle Harrell

"Right now I'm looking
at a lot of windows and
that's one of the windows
(seeking Sen. Pruitt's seat).
I really\ enjoy helping peo-
ple too much tou ide olr


into the sunset."
She said several people
have asked her to consider
running for her old seat in
four years, which is now
held by Adam Fetterman.
Because of term limits,
she was unable to run for,
re-election after serving as
state representative\ for
eight years.
Her district .included
most of Port St. Lucie,
much of Jensen Beach and,
Part of Palm City.
She chose to seek the
Republican nomination
for Congress, opposing
former Rep. Tim Mahoney,
D-Palm Beach Gardens.
But a bruising Republi-,
can primary\ pitied her
against -lal V JalJhe,� or-
S.I . 'hl


mer' Palm .Beach Gardens
councilman and Tom
Rooney, a newcomer from
Jupiter.
Rep. Mahoney, who
admitted to several extra-
marital affairs weeks
before the election, was
ultimately defeated by Mr.
Rooney.
But, she said, she
believes Tropical Storm
Fay, which resulted in
fewer days of early voting
in. St. Lucie and Martin
counties, doomed her
attempt.
With Martin and -St.
Lucie counties making up
about 50 percent of the
vote, she said, she believed
she had a good chance.

for the big man."
After Atlantic tied the
score at 21, Nelson again
found Thompson who went
high in the air for a 29-yard
touchdown pass to give
South Fork the advantage.
Atlantic tied the game
minutes later, before Walker
found the end zone with just
over four minutes left in the
game to give the Bulldogs
the dramatic 35-28- victory.
The win left Lavelle search-
ing for words as to how his
team rose to the occasion.
"I have no idea," Lavelle
said. "If I could figure that
out I would write a book and
retire.
"Can you spell Cinderel-
la?"
While South Fork (9-3)
gets to dance on,, the clock
struck midnight for Fort
Pierce Westwood. Taking on
WT. Dwyer - the No. 3
team in Class 4A - Panthers
head coach Waides Ashmon
knew his team was in for a
battle.
"Dwyer is Dwyer," Ash-
mon-said. "They're a great
football team. We have to
put our best foot forward."
Unfortunately, the slipper
didn't fit, as Westwood com-


"I have no idea. If I could figure it that out, I
would write a book and retire. Can you say
Cinderella?"

Dennis Lavelle
South Fork head football coach


mitted three fumbles - two
of which occurred on poten-
tial touchdown runs. The
latter was returned 102
yards in the other direction
to put Dwyer up 31-0.
Fort Pierce (10-2) avoided
the shutout when quarter-
back Isaac Virgin hooked up
with Leon Shorter on.a 50-
yard touchdown pass late in
the fourth quarter.
Like Westwood, Vero
Beach found itself in an
early hole that it couldn't
climb out of. On their first
play from scrimmage, an
Indians fumble resulted in a
30-yard touchdown for
Royal Palm Beach and a 7-0
lead.
While Vero Beach only
managed two Pat Baker field
goals in the early stages of
the second quarter, the
Wildcats answered 'with
touchdown passes of 71-
and 34-yards to build a 21-6
lead.

tered with a 13-yard tofch-
down pass from Shawn 0'

Dare to Stevie Wallace just
before halftime, but Royal
Palm Beach put the game
away with a 60-yard scam-
per minutes into the fourth
quarter.
Much of the credit in the
Wildcats' 28-13 win goes to
their run defense, which
held Vero Beach's normally
prolific ground attack to 52
yards on 46 carries.
Unlike its neighbors to the
north, South Fork's magic
carpet ride continued. The
Bulldogs were scheduled to
take to the road yet again,
traveling to state power-
house St. Thomas Aquinas.
However, the Bulldogs have
made themselves at home
on the road this season, thus
far going undefeated.
"We're 7-0 on the road,"
Lavelle said. "We were 2-3 at
home. We have a nice stadi-
um and nice fans. Go figure.
"The three teams that did
beat us at home- Atlantic,
Westwood and Vero
Beach- went a combined
30-6."

The Exile of Nonius
Most historic gemstones have
names, given by their owners,
finders, dealer, or publicists and
we remember them as "the
Mountain of Light" or the "Taylor-
Burton Diamond." But the most
famous opal in history has no
name, even'though it does have a
deliciously _candalous story It
was owned by a Roman senator
called Nonius in 35 B.C. and it
was the ialk o republican Rome
At Ihe lime all ihe opals P rwn in

enough rI buy a villa or two in a
nice part of Rome. Thal was I1 iIs
owner had decided to sell it. But
he did not, and that was;Where
the problems started. Pliny the
Elder tells of how the smooth talk-
ing Roman general Mark Anthony
desperately wanted to buy the
opal. When Nonius refused to
sell, Anthony applied pressure,
and the senator fled, choosing
exile with his opal over Rome
without. Pliny marveled at the
passion and cruelty of Anthony,
who cared so much for a jewel
that he would banish another
man for its sake.. And he won-
dered at the obstinacy of Nonius
who agreed to be banished. But
the most perplexing thing ofall, to
Pliny, was that although he had to
leave behind the rest of his prop-
*erty, he took with him the opal
ring that had been the cause of
his exile. Surely, Pliny mused, the
little jewel would remind the sen-
ator forever of his misfortune.

Against Obama

I have a comment for the morons who voted for Obama.
Now he's brought another Clinton back into things. You
people should be ashamed of yourselves. Now they can
steal more money from the country. And her husband can
run the streets while she's working. They are scumbags.

Check for facts

The rants and raves section said they check statements
of fact for accuracy and no slanderous statements will be
accepted.
Yet there are things about President-elect Obama stating
that he is not a Christian, he doesn't believe in God, etc.
SMy concern is not about some low-informed ranter, it's
concerning the people who print these things.

Column isa lifesaver.

Editor's note: The writer is referring to the Alive & Well col-
umn, written by Shelley Koppel.
At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, I must tell you
that your Oct. 17 column in Hometown News saved my life.
On that very morning, I discovered a lump in my right
breast that I never noticed before. I am in my early 50s and,
I am ashamed to admit, never went for a mammogram
because breast cancer does not run in my family and I hive
always been exceptionally healthy.
But something about this lump did not feel quite right.
I went into the kitchen to have coffee and found Home-
itown News on the dining room table. I ead your column.
I was laid off from my job earlier this year and could no
longer afford my COBRA (coverage) and, hence; do not
have medical insurance.
Then I read what you wrote about the Department of
Health Florida breast and cervical cancer screening pro-
gram. I immediately looked it up on the Internet and dis-.
covered that my county health department offered it.
I called them on Monday morning and was approved for
the program on that day.
I have subsequently discovered that I was the last eligible
woman approved for that program due to a shortage of
'funds; they only had enough money for one more appli-
cant.
I have since discovered that I do, indeed, have breast
cancer and have been approved for Medicaid. My surgery
is scheduled for December. My pre-ops are scheduled for
next week, including breast MRI, chest x-ray, EKG and pre-
op physical,
The .blood work is scheduled , for tomorrow
morning. Throughout this ordeal, the care has been excep-
tional.
Initially, I found it extremely difficult and, yes, humiliat-,'
ing, to apply for public assistance. I am a professional and .
have always worked and enjoyed decent health care and.
disability benefits.
But, along with countless millions across this country, I,
too, have suffered from the severe economic downturn.
Again, I wish to offer my eternal gratitude to you. I had
never heard of these programs before and, if I did not learn
about them from your'column, I do not like to anticipate
what may have happened.

I'm no drunk

This is a reply to the rant about the city of drunks. I'm a.
respectable person. I shave; don't drink alcohol and don't
have a criminal record. I've been unemployed- for six
months.
I don't know where that person is from, but maybe he is
part of the problem, not part of the solution.

One hour is worth generations in genealogy


A couple of years ago, I
was planning a long
weekend trip to the
mountains for a wedding
anniversary celebration.
The fastest way seemed
to be from Orlando to
Charlotte, N.C. It occurred.
to me that it was close to
where I needed to research,
but I needed to forget that,
it was my anniversary.
However, I couldn't help
checking the map, and sure
enough, only one hour east
was my research town.
I needed to go "west"
with my husband, not
"east" to the library, right?
But it was so close! Oh well,
the courthouse would be
closed on Saturday, and the
library probably would be,
too. Better forget it, but it
was sooo close!
It happens that my
father's family and my
mother's family both lived
Sin Richmond County, N.C.
between 1790 and 1836,,
,completely separate from
each other. Then, each
family moved on in com-
pletely different directions.
The courthouse would be
closed. I checked the
library hours. Almost any
North Carolina library has a
great genealogy section
and most have separate
genealogy rooms with lots


GENEALOGY

SMITH


of local history.
The library was open
until 5 p.m. on Saturday. I
could land in Charlotte,
rent a car, drive to Rocking-
ham, and be there by 4 p.m.
One whole hour in the
library, then we could head
west.
Fortunately, I have the
most understanding
husband in the world, and,
he doesn't mind research-
:ing,.and likes cemeteries as
much as I do.
He said. "Go for it" and so
we actually pull up to the
library in Rockingham, .
N.C. at4 p.m. on Saturday
afternoon. Ithasa huge.
genealogy room and he
takes one side and I take
the other. We spend the
next 45 minutes going
through local history
material. At that point, I
head to the copy machine
to copy the few things we
have found that might
mean something at a later
date.
While standing in line at
the copy machine, I glance


at a hand drawn map
Vernon has found in a thin
little book. It has all the
churches in the county
markedThe booklet is the
history of the churches in
the county and has an
Index at the'back. In the
index is listed Knight's
Chapel;
Quickly looking this up
(remember, all this is being
done in one hour) I find
that Knight's Chapel was
founded by Moses Knight
in 1790. Moses Knight! He's
mine, and the chapel is
marked down at the state
line right where he would
have lived. This is a great
find. I copy themap and
hie page on the brief ':
history of the church and
we are kicked out of the
library at closing time.
There is still lots of
daylightleft on a summer
dayin August, so we start
visiting cemeteries looking
for my mother's family,
stopping to talk to neigh-
bors, and taking all their
directions to the little
cemeteries in the out of the
way places. This search
brings no results and so I
reluctantly decide to give
.up and continue on with
our original plans.
Knight's Chapel is calling.
It looks like it is right on


U.S. 1, a few miles down
the road at the state line. Of
course that was in 1790.
Before we leave town, I say
to Vernon, "Why don'twe
just drive down the road.
Who knows, maybe there
will be a big sign with
Knight's Chapel written on
it?" And so we do.
There is no sign and no
Knight's Chapel, but after
we cross into South
Carolina we pass a little
white church sitting far i
back on the road.
S"There's a church with a
nice cemetery, do you want
to look?"
As we'pull in, I look at the
church sign, New Hope
Methodist Church. That.
sounds familiar. I check the
copied pages to see exactly
what it says.
"Moses and William
Knight founded Knight's
Chapel in 1790, which later
became New Hope
Methodist Church."
Along the side there is a
nice cemetery, and at the
front, and probably sitting
next to where the original
church would have been, is
a feiced-in section. Most of
the stones remaining are of.
the Knight family, some are
Moses' children. This is
"our" family plot. It is

down, I'd like to
. Share some of the
latest news about health,
gleaned from all the
publications that cross my
desk.
Now for aNew Year's
resolution: some of them
will be filed and some of
them discarded.
As a reminder, this
information comes from
reputable organizations,
but you should still talk to
your doctor before taking
any medical advice.
There is also a lot of
rumor and downright
misinformation on the
Web, and anything that
doesn't give the name of
the organization or the -
doctor involved is probably
phony.
Listening to unsubstanti-
ated, unproven claims can
cost you money if you buy
products that don't work. It
can also be dangerous.
Remember that just
because it's on the Internet,
doesn't make it true.

Tai chi may help
older adults sleep
better

From "Healthy Years," a
publication of the UCLA
Medical School's Division of


ALIVE
&WELL:
SHELLEY KOPPEL


Geriatrics, September 2008
A new study has shown
that tai chi, an ancient
martial art based on slow,
graceful movements, helps
people get a good night's
sleep. This is particularly
important for older adults,
who often have sleeping
problems. Study partici-
pants who took 45-minute
� classes three times a week
had significant improve-
ments in sleep quality.
-Many gyms, fitness centers
and municipalities are
offering'tai chi classes; it
pays to ask around.

Omega-3 linked to
lower risk of age-
related macular
degeneration

From Duke University
"Health News,"September
2008
Several studies have
concluded that consuming
fish and other foods rich in
omega-3 fatty acids twice a
week is associated with a
lower risk of age-related


macular degeneration, the
leading cause of blindness
in adults 60 and older.
Omega-3 fatty acids are
abundant in salmon,
flaxseed, walnuts, scallops,
cauliflower, shrimp, cod,
tuna, soybeans, collard
greens, kale and Brussels
sprouts. Taking supple-
ments did not appear to
confer the same benefits.

Physical activity
associated with
lower cancer rates

From Duke University
"Health News," October
2008
Physically active adults
are less likely to develop
several forms of cancer
than sedentary adults.
Researchers in Japan
studied more than 80,000
men and women between
the ages of 45 and 74 about
their exercise habits. Men
in the most active group
had a 16 percent lower risk
of developing cancer and
women in the most active
group had a 13 percent
lower risk.
Physical activity included
all types of activity and not
just exercises for fitness, so
if you enjoy gardening or
need a good excuse to
vacuum and clean out the
closets, any physical


activity that is appropriate
for your health is a good
idea.

Coffee gets clean
bill of health

From Tufts University
"Health and Nutrition
Letter," September 2008
A study of more than
125,000 Americans has
found no link between
coffee consumption and
increased risk of death,
even for those who drink
six or more cups a day.
Both regular and decaf-
feinated coffee were
actually associated with a
small decrease in overall
mortality, perhaps because
of possible benefits in
reducing the risk of type 2'
diabetes, heart disease and
some cancers.
Of course, if coffee
upsets your stomach, if
your doctor has advised
against drinking coffee or
too much caffeine makes
you jittery, switch to
decaffeinated or stay away
from it.

Dealer fee discussion, part II


Editor's note: This is part
two ofa column in response
to the Nov. 28 column,
"Dealerfee fight,"from Drew
Clarke, a dealership owner
from Amherstburg, Ontario,
Canada, who winters in
Stuart.
D rew Clarke: I don't
believe manufactur-
ers advertise prices
that include "destination" or
"freight" charges, substan-
tial amounts that usually
end up in the fine print. Do
all dealers advertise a price
thatincludes freight?
Should that be regulated?
I understand Mr. Stewart's
frustration with his adver-
tising efforts, but his
personal frustration should-
n't result in additional
regulations just to satisfy his
concerns.
Advertise "no service fees"
to help consumers think
about what they are buying.
I'm sure he will continue to
benefit (as he has already
acknowledged) from this
declaration. Perhaps the
answer is to establish and
/or clarify consumer
advertising guidelines,
rather than setting price
controls.
Earl Stewart: All manu-
facturers in the USA are
supposed to advertise
prices that do. include
freight. This is a federal law.


Geneology
From page A6
Saturdaynight, tomorrow is
Sunday service at the
church and there is no way I
am going anywhere! We are
going to church.
Sunday morning we walk
into church, and all five
elderly attendees turn to
stare. Service was over, the
minister had gone to his
next sermon, and they were
having Sunday school. They
were friendly and polite, but
had no idea how or when

EARL STEWART

-Sw


Most dealers include freight
in their advertised prices,
but there are exceptions
that get away with it, due to
virtually no enforcement of
auto consumer laws by the
Florida Attorney General's
office. I agree with you and I
stated above that we need to
correct and clarify existing
laws and enforce them, too.
DC: At a time when
consumers seem to be
staying away from dealer
showrooms en masse,
perhaps it is time for dealers
to re-think how they are
selling their product. Mr.
Stewart has decided on his
path, I'm sure other dealers
will decide on their own
path, hopefully without the
burden of unnecessary
government regulation.
ES: I do hope that other
dealers will one day recog-
nize that earning the trust of
i.ar buyers is the surest,
fastest path to success.
I don't measure my
success by comparing
myself with domestic
dealers who have fallen on
bad times due to problems
with their products and
manufacturers. I measure


the church was founded
and didn't really seem to
care. The Knight family is
long since gone and they
were only interested in their
own families and were
anxious to tell me about
them. The rest of Sunday
school was spent on family
stories.
My little out-of-the-way
trip to spend one hour in a
library turned into a
memory of a lifetime. This is
the way genealogy is; one '
chance meeting; one quick
stop, checking just one
more source, can change


my success relative to other
Toyota and Honda dealers.
DC: In many ways we are
on the same side of the
debate. I simply feel it is an
advertising and disclosure
issue. If it is declared in the
ad and disclosed and
explained on the bill of sale,
there is no deception at all.
Every customer at our
dealership is turned over to
our business manager and
evety line is explained prior
to signing. Our admin fee is
not just profit, it helps cover
many things such as lien
searches on trade-ins,
dealer trade costs, which
can be substantial in
Canada, as we do not carry
the inventories you carry in
the U.S., lease transfer of
equity costs, walk-away
insurance, a full tank of fuel
on delivery and the huge
cost of documentation our
government, GM and the
financial institutions
impose on us.
No, we do not pay our
sales staff on this amount
($399) for obvious reasons,
but we do not charge a
pack, either. If someone
asks us what the fee com-
prises, we're happy to tell
them.
Keeping all that in mind,
we still have to be competi-
tive in the marketplace and
the fee must be reasonable.

would charge $999 and still

ES: You say that "our
admin fee is not just profit,
it helps cover many things,
such as lien searches on
trade-in, dealer trade costs,
etc." I think that you will
agree that when a customer
reimburses you for your
costs in the price he pays for
his car, itbecomes profit.
Employing reductiono ad
absurdum," why not
include your advertising
cost, salesman's commis-
sion and part of your power
bill in the admin fee? I
always ask dealers why they
don't just add their admin
fee/dealer fee into the price
they advertise and quote to
their customers. I've never
gotten a straight answer to
this question. But I think I
know the answer. It's
because they don't want the
customer to know the full
price of the car until they
are sitting down and signing
the final papers.
And of course, iri too
many cases customers don't
realize even then. You say
that you are "surprised that
someone would charge $999

Regardless of whether
Mrs. Harrell seeks another
elected position, she said,
she feels she was able to
accomplish goals as a state
representative.
She considers her most
significant achievement
helping Martin Memorial
Hospital get authorization
for a heart treatment cen-
ter.
For years, Lawnwood
Regional Medical Center
and Heart Institute had
opposed it.
Millions of dollars have
been wasted on litigation
statewide, with' some hos-
pitals opposing attempts
by others to offer various
services, she said.

take.the politics out of it by
getting the process
changed from the need for
a certificate of need to a
licensing procedure.
With the licensing pro-
cedure, Martin Memorial
only needed to meet state
requirements, she said.
The certificate of need
process included consid-
eration of the views of
other hospitals.
Opposition from other
hospitals was less a factor
once the procedure was
changed.
At the same time, she
said, she helped Lawn-
wood and St. Lucie Med-
ical Center increase their
number of beds.
She also sought to
increase the availability of
medical services for the
poor, through legislation
providing legal immunity
to those who provide the
Scare, she said.
Those were among the
types of issues that con-
cerned her, she said, when
she first ran for state rep-
resentative in 1992.
State Sen. Ken Pruitt, R-
Port St. Lucie, defeated her
then.
In seeking office in 1992,
she said, she was con-
cerned about education
and health care. With four
children in public schools,
she said, she was very
upset about how the state
had spent education dol-
lars.
She was concerned that,
in health care, HMOs were


PALM PLAZA


"making medical decisions
instead of patients and
their doctors.
In 2000, when she was
elected, Mrs. Harrell said
she was pleased Sen. Pruitt
addressed the issues of
concern to her, particular-
ly education, by improving
funding.
She's worked with Sen.
Pruitt to achieve his vision
of diversifying the econo-
my by bringing research
and expanding education
opportunities on the Trea-
sure Coast, she said.
"We are certainly seeing
right now why it's so
important to do that," Mrs.
Harrell said.
She said she's tried bring
people together to
improve education.
She was successful in
getting legislation passed
that gave local school dis-
tricts more flexibility in
spending state dollars.
Other achievements
included a bill that
increases security at ports,
obtaining money for men-,
tal health and substance
abuse treatment and get-
ting millions of dollars to
clean local rivers, Lake
Okeechobee and to 'pre-
serve the Everglades.
During the next couple
of years, she said, the
effort will have to be to do
"what we can do to make
the state government work
more efficiently."
During her two terms,
she has won 42 awards,
including Legislator of the
year from the Florida Med-
ical Association, an "A" rat-
ing from the Florida
Chamber of Commerce,
the Faith and Family
Award from the :Christian

by using fewer fossil fuels
and more natural energy
sources like solar."
The 75-megawatt solar
facility will cover 500
acres at the existing FPL
Martin plant and feature
about 180,000 mirrors.
It will power about
11,000 homes. And by
relying on solar power,
instead of fuel, the plant
will prevent the emissions
of more than 2.75 million
tons of greenhouse gases.
That's the equivalent of
removing more than
18,700 cars per year from
the road, noted the U.S.
Environmental Protection
Agency. It is also projected
to prevent the emission of
just under 3.5 million tons
of carbondioxide.
"The next generation of
Floridians is counting on
us to address the most
pressing energy chal-
lenges of our time," said
Lew Hay, chairman and
CEO of the FPL Group,
which trades publicly on
the. New York Stock


Exchange. "With the Mar-
tin Next Generation Solar
Energy Center, we will
capture the power of the
sun to fight climate
change and provide the
state with clean, afford-
able energy."
It's a move that
Indiantown resident Sofia
Gonzalez applauded.
"If it helps the environ-
ment, then I'm behind it,"
she said.
The venture is set to cre-
ate the second largest
solar plant in the country,
FPL representatives said
at a ground breaking cere-
mony on Dec. 2 at the site
of the company's current
Martin County operation
in Indiantown.
It would cut oil use by


600,000 barrels and slash
natural gas consumption
by 41 billion cubic feet,
they said.
"At this innovative facili-
ty, each sunrise will be the
equivalent of easing our
foot off the gas pedal...,"
Mr. Hay said. "FPL will do
more - much more - in
the coming years to build
Florida's renewable ener-
gy industry."
Florida Lt. Gov. Jeff Kot-
tkamp also embraced the
plan.
"We believe there is no
better place than here, in
the Sunshine State, to lead
the way in expanding
solar technology to homes
and businesses," he said.

Arrest documents claim

In November, Ms. Sink

degree grand theft to the
couple's charges.
Her representatives say
the case stems from 2005,

Clarence and Ella Mae
Flemming told investigators
that the pastor and his wife
fraudulently took out a
mortgage in their name and
withheld the proceeds of the
sale of one of their proper-
ties, according to docu-
ments from the State Attor-
ney's office. If convicted, the
two latest felony charges
could mean up to 30 years in
prison for Mr. and Mrs.
McGill, as well as additional
penalties because the case
involves seniors over age 65.
Attorneys for the pair
could not be reached by

Several of the tapes
showed sex acts with chil-

according to the arrest
record.
Mr. Davis faced multiple
felony/charges after the dis-
covery at his home at 4489
Salvatori Road in Stuart.
But an amended plea deal
could reduce Mr. Davis'
prison term from more than
100 years to 25 years after
prosecutors agreed to drop
77 felony charges and
uphold 23.

Furniture

store

offers,

real deal
By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY - It
doesn't offer payment plans
with no money down for
years.
Nor does it promise zero
interest for the rest of the
decade, as some competitors
do.
But what'the unassuming
furniture store, Wood You
offers is sturdy furniture at
unbeatable prices.
"Quality is key" 'said store
owner Terry .Kelly.. "In so
rniany of the other places you
have to make excuses for why
the product isn't up [topar." i
Mr. Kelly opened his Wood
You franchise in February
2005, after working for the
company for about 11 years.
"Seeing what kind of prod-
uct it was, in terms of quality I
knew it was a good company
to be involved with," he said.
The store's name is a play
on words, alluding to the do-
it-yourself finishes the com-
pany promotes for its solid
wood furniture.
Customers can decide
what colors, varnishes or
other finishes to apply to
pieces from the store.
They can select from a
range of items for each room,
including kitchen, dining,
outdoor, bedroom and chil-
dren'sfurniture.
Like many other furniture
stores, the 4,000-square-foot .
Stuart operation carries
entertainment centers,
kitchen islands and cabinets,
bunk beds and a range of
items.
The difference,; though, is
that Wood. You's selection
includes pine, oak and other
woods.

From page A6
Investigate lottery money
This about the school system that is going to have major
cut-backs. It's a good time for papers in Florida to investi-
gate where all of the money that the lottery brings in actual-
ly goes. There must be somebody taking from the pot.
Somebody should look into this.
Toughen up, U.S.A
The United States is a bunch of sissies. Why aren't we
c&wn in Verezuela taking care of President Chavez? Now
we have this new regime coming in (to office) who are just a
bunch of idiots. They are just a bunch of (Bill) Clinton
idiots. He couldn't take care of Hussein when he had a
chance.

closest competitors, Palm
Beach Toyota and Royal
Palm Toyota both charge
$895. They have "full
disclosure" on their buyer's
order, but most customers
never notice it because it's
buried among legitimate
charges such as sales tax,
tire tax, registration fees and
license fees. Those who do
notice, believe that it's some
kind of official federal, state,
or local fee or tax.
Why not considered being
a leader in your market and
eliminating the dealer fee? I
guarantee you that your
customers will love you for
it. Your sales will rise and


you might be making a little
less per car, but you will
offset this by your increase
in volume.
I'd be curious how your
son and daughter-in-law
feel about this. My three
sons love the fact that we
have established ourselves
in this market as the honest,
ethical car dealer.

More on rant
The rant published on Nov. 29 titled "Be careful of New
Administration" is possibly one of the most hypocritical,
bigoted pieces I have read in years. The author of the rant
everyone who didn't vote for McCain fools. I refer him or
her to Matthew 5:22.

What happened to quote?
I don't know how an auto dealer can quote you one price
when you're buying a car, and then give you another price
when things are being finalized.

No swimming at jetty
Has anyone been to the jetty lately? Where will everyone
swim? Snowbirds won't come to tie area because the beach
is being swallowed by the ocean, along with the sea oats that
we have spent so much money on.
Will somebody go to the beach and take a picture so they
can see how bad it is? There are barricades to keep us out,
but is there anything else we can do?

Transitioning to retirement for boomers


f you're a "senior" mem-
ber of the baby boom
generation- generally
defined as those born
between 1946 and 1964 -
you've seen a lot in your life:
the ColdWar, the first moon
landing, the birth of the
Internet and much more. But
in just a few years, you may
face something you probably
never thought you'd see: your
retirement. To make a
smooth transition to this
stage of your life, you'll need
to become familiar with a
few key financial topics.
Consider the following:

For the past few decades, you
may have been building
financial resources for
retirement through an
employer-sponsored plan -
such as a 401(k) or a tradi-
tional pension - and
possibly an IRA. Now,
however, it's time to deter-
mine just how much retire-

"For some other stores,
their biggest advertising asset
is that you don't have to pay
for a long time. But by that
time, their furniture is already
falling apart," Mr. Kelly said.
His store allows shoppers
the ability to personalize each
piece, rather than being con-
fined to color choices avail-
able at the store.
"You have a greater variety
in terms of what you can do,"
Mr. Kelly said, "Virtually any
finish you want; you can
achieve."

before that age and your
former employer doesn't
cover you, you'll need to find
some health insurance to fill
the gap.
* Social Security. You can
begin collecting Social
Security benefits at age 62,
but you'll get larger monthly
checks if you wait until you
reach "normal" retirement
age, which, if you are in the
first wave of baby boomers,
will be about age 66. When
should you start taking
payments? It depends on a
variety of factors, including
your health, family history of
longevity and other sources
of income.
* Further employment. If
you decide to do some type
of work after retirement,
whether for financial or
personal reasons, you'll need
to factor this income into
your overall retirement
income strategies.
For instance, if you're
earning a reasonable amount
from a post-retirement job,
you may want to delay taking
money from your 401(k) or

products you can really get
behind. You don't have to
worry about apologizing for
them."
Its' pieces often become
family heirlooms, lasting for
.several generations, he said.
"There's no reason to think
that if you came in to buy a

last you,"he said. :.

have to start taking distribu-

Also, according to the
Social Security Administra-
tion, if you start collecting
Social Security when you're
younger than your full
retirement age, you will lose
$1 of benefits for every $2
you earn above a certain
annual amount ($13,560 in
2008). Once you reach full
retirement age, you can keep
all your benefits, no matter
how much you earn.
So, there you have them,
just a few of the financial
issues you'll need to explore
as you lead the babyboom
cohort into retirement. By
taking your time and
exploring all your options,
you can make the transition
pleasant - and rewarding.

It is one of the latest hold-
ings of the franchise that
began in 1977 to offer unfin-
ished furniture directly to cus-
tomers, according to a state-
ment for the company's
Jacksonville's headquarters.
"The only thing that has
changed as we have grown is
the ability to offer even better
values through our large buy-
ing power," the group said in a
statement.
Bulk purchases, as well as a
policy to send orders by the
truckload, rather than a few
pieces at a time to each.store,
means'that the company
adds about $2 to the cost of
each item.
Thats.a significant saving,
compared to the average 20
percent that competitors add
to transport a few items at'a
time to their stores, Mr. Kelly
said. -. v .---..

construction efforts in Mar-
tin County. Items can be

cacy.

Escargot, brie among delicacies


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
Love; That's the best word
by far to describe Taste, a
beautiful eatery in Hobe
Sound's historic downtown.
Some of its menu items
are exquisite. Take the
escargot, for instance,
baked with garlic butter and
bread crumbs and served
with garlic-toast points. Or'
the fried brie, served with
fresh fruit and a home-
made honey mustard
sauce. Both achieve the
ideal blend of delicate
spices and undercurrents of
flavor.
The candlelight adds to
the air of romance, and the
soft music doesn't hurt,
either.
Some nights it's the
sound of an acoustic guitar
that teases guests seated on
couches sipping wine or
coffee near the fireplace in
the living-room-like foyer.
Other times, it's live piano
music that creates the per-
fect compliment to the can-
dlelight in the restaurant's
screened patio, complete


with lamps and a garden.
On a recent Tuesday, Phil
Collins' voice wafts through
the sound system; soft and
non-intrusive on the stereo.
We're a few feet away
from an outdoor tiki bar, a
dance floor and, are sur-
rounded by original art on
the walls.
There's a lot to take in
even before we open our
menus and await our rolls,
made to order and served
piping hot..

perfectly seasoned 8-ounce!

"This is the best onion

meal. "That was really, really
good."

natural fit for the restaurant.

the good things that have been
created the past year. Your pos-
itive leadership guides the way.

ing star, shining brighter every
day.

Cancer - June 22-July 22
Making the best of each event

So things aren't always perfect.
Who said you have to be a per-
fectionist all the time? The key
to happiness is to make wise
choices on where you place
your time and energy. You
know what you want in life.
Stay focused on your top prior-
ities and continue to achieve
top results.

Leo- July 23-Aug 22
You have learned so much this
year.There is so much waiting.
to be learned. Learn about
areas that give you stress so
you can do what it takes to
eliminate it. Continue to
remove old habits, attitudes,
events and things that no
longer serve your higher pur-
pose in life. This will keep you
psyched up, moving forward
and finding true happiness.

Virgo -Aug. 23-Sept 22

and the visions you will receive
will always guide you toward

Years ago while visiting
my son in the Carolinas,.we
were treated to this dessert.
The Cool Whip container of
starter that I was given grew
in the car and spilled onto
the carpet. That was the end
of making it myself until
now.
In addition, let's make
more cookies.
Note: Be sure to preheat
oven for 20 minutes.

AMISH FRIENDSHIP
BREAD STARTER
This sweet bread is
exceptional. Usuallyyou

Sam dedicating this
column to my high
school classmate, John
Troelstrup, a fine honor-
able man who inspired me
with this column because
he demonstrates all of
them in his life.
What is the first greatest
blessing? It's the gift of life
itself. When we wake up
each morning, the first
thing we should do is give
thanks for being given the
gift of life for another day.
People who have an open
heart to giving and receiv-
ing and doing this are
healthier as a rule, because
the spirit of life and grati-
tude is flowing through
them rather than being
sidetracked, stuck, polluted
or ignored.
During the holiday
season, look back on the
many blessings and
challenges of the past year.
We should feel so lucky for
the guiding hand of spirit
in bringing us safely
through the world; eco-
nomic and family chal-
lenges we have faced. The
good news: we are still here
and given another chance
:to renew our lives, share
our many blessings and
prepare for a wonderful
new year ahead.
The second greatest
blessing should be to honor
our spiritual nature by
whatever name we place
upon the higher power.
Spend a little time each
day feeding the spirit living
in our heart and soul. This.
psyches us up and gives
internal strength to face the
earthly challenges and
emerge victorious over'ife.
Read an inspirational story
or book, do positive
affirmations, sing, pray, ask
for divine guidance, listen
to beautiful inspirational

music, commune with
nature or walk on the
beach. Many successful
people do this daily. We all
need a little time alone
with our higher self. This is
a time of healing, vision
and renewed hope for a
better day and tomorrow.
We can't change the past.
What is, is. But we can
learn from it, bless it for
what it taught us, forgive it
when needed, release it
and move on and create
new happier causes.
The third greatest
blessing should be to take
care of our own life and
soul. How can we love
someone else in an uncon-
ditional way if we don't let'
the first and second
blessings spill over into our
lives and keep ourselves
focused and committed to
our true life's purpose?
Every human on earth has
at least one gift nestled in
the soul at birth yearning to
be set free. The primary job
of the third blessing should
be to go inside, find it,
bring it out and set it free.
Now that we have found'
our gift and purpose, the
fourth greatest blessing
should be to create a family
living in harmony with
similar goals, inspirations
and purpose. The greatest
asset is to be compatible so
that love and peace can
prevail. The divine spiritual
gifts given at birth to all
children are to live a life of
purpose, love; peace,
,health abundance ,faith,
joy and creativity. Every
. one of us on earth, at birth,
has been given this
supreme blessing and
birthright as children of the
Higher power. We should
pass it on to our children.
The fifth greatest bless-
ing is to be able to gie
back and help them find
these awesome blessings
we have so freely and
generously been given by
spirit. We are nov the light.
When others are drawn to
us and have a hunger, or
are searching, pass.the
torch. Become a messenger
of hope. Give a kind word
every day.Say, "You can do

MATTERS OF PERSONAL
tASTE
Home decorating and design aim
to blend beauty and function to
create the most important of per-
sonal extensions-the home.
Everything, from the layout of the
furniture othe texture of, the
draperies, should define the style
of the homeowner. Of course, not
everyone can1 translate personal
taste to inspired d6cor without
some help. This is where profes-
sional expertise plays a role in
introducing homeowners to mate-
rials, designs, pnd styles that lead
to a successful and satisfying
interpretation Of their own person-
al tastes. This'process requires a
number of basic decisions and
countless details that combine to
make an aesthetic and functional
statement. Future columns will
provide information about current
trends in home design that will
help guide your decisions.
We would like to welcome you to
our weekly column on home dec-
orating. We hope you find upcom-
ing installments both informative
and inspirational. At, Interior
Wisdom, we offer a full suite of
home decorating services, with a
special emphasis on green interi-
ors. We believe that a well deco-
rated space - be it your home,
office, or yacht - should be beau-
tiful, healthy, and ecologically
friendly. We also offer renovation
and construction project manage-
ment. Call us at 561-756-6951
or 772-781-3705 to learn more
about our services. Our office is
located at 1565 SW'Martin Hwy.,
Palm City.
HINT: When painting a room, take
your cues from nature-light ceil-
ing, darker walls and floors darker
yet.

interested in. So many have
been disappointed because it
either sold out or there are no
flights that are close to being
reasonable in price, or a
gazillion other reasons that it
cannot happen for them. Sad
but true.
First, I would like to remind
you that there are still some
fabulous holiday cruises that
are reasonably priced. The
holidays are the big event of
the year so I felt it necessary
to mention this.
There are three- to 12-night
cruises sailing over the
holiday and NewYears or
both. Check them out, as it is
sometime less expensive to
cruise and be waited on than
to stay home, cook, clean and
entertain. It is also a great gift
to one who might be doing all
the cooking and cleaning.
Do not leave out the
incredible European Christ-
mas market river cruises that
visit the many small towns
along the rivers in Europe.
These cruises generally end
in the fall, but are brought
back for the Christmas
markets and are always a
bargain at this time of year.
Super Bowl cruises: In the
past, the cruise lies did not
have the set up for live action

Tauck has been doing the
Derby events for years and
not only do it very well, but
participants feel more
special than the owners and
trainers of the Derby horses.
The five-dayVIP tour gives
you such an insight to the
horse world, but on the day
of the Run for the Roses the
Tauck buses get a police
escort into Churchill Downs,
VIP seating.at the first turn,
exclusive air-conditioned

buffet with regional fare, and
an all-day open bar.
My clients who participat-
ed last year felt as though
they were trulyVIPs and felt
it was well worth the price.
Others who were close by
their seats were quite
envious, according to one of
my clients. They felt so very
special and will remember it
always.

In 2009 the men in the
village begin to grow out
their hair and beards for the
2010 event. This dramatic
event has been on going
since the 1600s and it now is
so popular, it is very difficult
to get tickets.
Most of the European tour
operators offer Oberamma-
gau 2010 as part of a package
on their existing tours. What
is difficult at this time is that
since it is more than year
away, the airfare cannot be
booked, which makes it very
difficult to sell. But it is
coming to that time. Those
who make the booking now
will secure the tour and their
tickets to the event. If you are
at all interested in witnessing
this spiritual masterpiece
you should start the process
now, before it is too late.

Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Tina Parriott and D'Anna Stracuzzi were set to receive the
SGold award from the Girl Scouts when the floods of Tropical
Storm Fay delayed that in August. The two young women
used etiquette, manners and respect as the foundation of
their projects to earn them their final award as a member of
the Girl Scouts No. 72 during a ceremony at the Women's
Club of Stuart Sunday, Nov. 23.


Girl Scouts receive

gold awards


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
Last year, approximately
5,500 girls received the
coveted Girl Scout Gold
award, and two were from
Martin County: Tina Par-
riott and D'Anna
Stracuzzi.
The Gold award is the
highest level of achieve-
ment a girl can earn, tak-
ing three years of work
and planning to imple-
ment. Many hours of
community service and
many smaller projects
were carried out before
either girl could even
approach the Girl Scouts
Palm Glades Council,
"(now called Girl Scouts of
Southeast Florida Coun-
cil) Gold Committee
about their ideas.
In a time when "being
good" rarely makes head-
line news, troop advisor
Genie Stracuzzi, wit-


nessed both girls initiate
and follow through with
their projects and in the
end, earn the Gold award,
though it is not about the
award, but more about
the reward that makes
both girls winners.
Tina,17, is a senior at
Jensen Beach High
School. She chose a proj-
ect that would help teach
the etiquette and man-
ners of the Victorian era
by hosting a Victorian tea
and fashion Show.
Held in April at the
Martin County Fair-
grounds, Tina opened the
doors to residents of
neighboring counties,
approximately 250 moth-
ers and daughters who
came for a day of learning
and fun:
Assisting Tina was Bar-
bara Taylor of Palm City,
as she spoke of the eti-
quettes of a proper "tea"

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a golf ball


W A ich of the follow-
/I/ 'ing does not belong
V ' on your scorecard:
two birdies; six pars, a few ,
bogeys, three airplanes, or a
dozen sky divers?
If you're playing at Sebast-
ian Municipal Golf Course,
they all have a spot. *
This Charles Ankrom-
designed course is built
around the local airport and
home to many of the nation's
best sky divers.
Originally built in 1981, the
course was tweaked few
years ago to fit with airport
improvements. The course
also rebuilt all of its greens
and a couple new holes were
added.
You will find no homes on
the course and, except for
the occasional plane taking
off or landing, there is little to
distract you from your game.
In a throwback to golf's
older days, every hole has a
name, giving the layout a
touch of personality.
The par-72 course features'
four sets of tees, ranging in
length from 5,308 to 6,715
yards, allowing every golfer
to find a distance that suits
his or her ability. The well-
appointed pro shop, practice
facilities and the Eagle's Nest
Restaurant are run by a fine
staff that you'll find ready,
willing and able to assist.
The course starts out with
a fairly simple par-4. The
hole requires a straight tee
shot to a wide fairway,
followed by a mid- to short-
iron approach. The second
hole is a short par-3 that
measures in at 152 yards
from the very tips.
After a fairly simple start,
the course shows some teeth
at the par-5 fourth. Reach-
able with two solid shots, this
hole requires you to be very
daring. The green is tucked
off to the right behind several
bunkers and among trees. If
you're laying up, play your
second shot to the left and
use the room to give yourself
a great angle for your
approach.
Requiring a mid- to long-
iron or hybrid from the tee,
the fifth hole is possibly the
best par-3 on the course.
To have any chance at
birdie, your tee shot must
stop on the narrow green and
avoid the sand. Missing left
here leaves you with a pitch
shot you would rather not
face.
One thing I like about
Sebastian is that you have to
think before teeing the ball
up and letting it rip. The sixth
hole exemplifies this,
requiring a soft draw around
the comer to leave you the
shortest approach shot. If
you can't hit a draw, you'll
need to play a shorter, more
accurate tee shot or risk
running out of fairway down
the right side.
The eighth hole is a'great
par-4. You can tee it up and
let it fly on this driyable hole,
Just make sure to carry the.
pond that runs across the
fairway and guards the front
portion of the green. Of
course, you can always play it
the simple way with two 7-
irons.
Your first nine ends with
the best par-4 on the front


side. A good drive leaves you
with a middle-iron approach
to a well guarded green.
Beware of the deep bunkers
guarding the putting surface.,
The first of the new holes
on the course is the 14th.
This beautiful par-3 is now
considered the course's
signature hole. For better
golfers, this hole plays a stout
180-yards across a large
pond to a well-bunkered
green.
The closing holes are some
of the best on the course.
Fifteen is a short par-5
where you can make up a
stroke or two. However, if you
miss the green you may find
yourself giving back a stroke
or two. The 16th is a long par-


4 with a green hidden by
bunkers and mounds. Do not
miss this green long!
The 17th appears to be a
docile par-3, playing short
156 yards from the very back.
The hole's defense lies in its
steeply sloped green that will
challenge your nerves and
putting stroke.
In my opinion, the best
hole on the golf course is the
final hole. At 430 yards from
the back tees, No. 18 will
challenge golfers of any
ability. A solid drive will catch
the down-slope of the
fairway and give you a
somewhat shorter approach.
Rates at Sebastian are very
competitive.-Golfers wishing
to play in the afternoon will
enjoy a discount, and if you
prefer to walk, Sebastian
accommodates you any time
during the week and after 1
p.m. on weekends.

"CAR DEALERS-


SMARTEN UP"

YOUR CUSTOMERS ALREADY HAVE.


S!EARL EWART STEWART" 1







AU TO Pt
,*' i' B^B5K,



An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee"."


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
Sand sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "My' CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectati
customers.


/


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


Virtually every car dealer ' O fedu
in Florida adds a, charge to
the price of cars he sells, a SOphistic
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much hig
to nearly $1,000. This extra
charge is programmed into ""'"'-
your computer. It has been made illegal in
many states including California, but is still
legal in Florida. The reason you charge this
fee is simply to increase the price of the car
and your profit in such a manner that it is not
noticed by your customers. This is just plain
wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years
ago it was scary. But I did it because I could
no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
customers. Just because everybody else
was doing the same thing, did not make it
correct.


Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit.per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
Shas improved, not because I eliminated the
'" .'.' dealer fee, but because I was


able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.


stt oers'
ions, level


tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
atiOn are I think of myself as the new
sheriff ' that has come to
rer today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
' ' letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And. I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,
Earl Stewart - Earl Sltewarr 'Teri
