Stuart moves
to simplify
development code

Stuart commissioners
took the first step toward
simplifying the city's devel-
opment code, which con-
trols zoning, signage and
environment protection
and growth.
The city commission
instructed staff to review
the code, which they
acknowledged was confus-
ing and in need of review.
Commissioners and staff
will seek public feedback
and plan to hold a work-
shop on the issue next
summer.

Sex scandal, stonn, bee attacks


among top stories of 2008


By Samantha Joseph

MARTIN COUNTY It was an
interesting year for Martin County,
as political intrigue played out
against a background of a natural
disaster and economic trials.
Amidst the 'historic presidential
election of 2008 was a repeat sex
scandal for Florida's 16th Congres-
sional District, which includes Mar-
tin County.
This time, it was incumbent Tim
Mahoney, a Democrat, who admit-

MARTIN COUNTY After eight
years of running a successful embroi-
dery and garment printing business, a
Stuart businessman needed to find a
way to stitch together abetter living.
With consumer spending plum-
meting on the Treasure Coast and
nationwide, Kurt Determann says he
needed another income stream.
He said he knew he had to make a
change when he found himself jug-
gling 60-hour work weeks at his com-
pany, Global Embroidery, with his
family life.
"I was working twice as hard to
make half as much," he said.
And he is not alone.
New Palm City"resident Cassandra
Bartlett said she moved from Min-
nesota to live with her brother, after
her employer cut her weekly hours by
70 percent.
Ms. Bartlett said she hopes to find a
full-time job with health insurance
and other benefits. But in the mean-
time, she's been considering starting a
home-based business selling Avon
products.
"I'm hearing (at local sales events)
that this could bring in -a couple of
hundred dollars a month," she said.
'Anything would help right now."

Spirit Guide offers 2009 predictions


E very so often, a good
shaking of the roots is
needed to clear out the
old and make room for the
new and better things in life
that make us happy, healthy,
successful or secure.
A snake sheds its skin now
and then to renew itself. A
few years ago when Yellow-
stone Park burned, every-
one looked at it as a disaster.
Since then, several hundred
old life forms have reap-
peared that the rangers
thought were extinct, along
with many new ones. The
roots were still alive, they
just couldn't break through
all the top growth that had
come later.
I was talking to my dear
friend, BettyBorden, on
Christmas Day and asked
for her predictions for 2009.
She said, "The economy
will recover, but it will take a
While. We need to stop

thinking about everything
that went wrong and begin
to take positive action that
will help our country and
the world."
We can't change what has
happened in the past. But
we can create new causes
and missions like we sow
new seeds in the garden to
grow new life. With your
permission, here are the


new causes I will plant for all
of the readers of Hometown
News, our country and the
world. Then it is my job and
yours to water the seeds
through our positive .
thinking (thank you, Betty)
and rekindle the fire of
desire living in our hearts
and souls for a great new
year'2009. Here are a few
predictions:
We have survived the
greater challenges. We don't
learn from our victories, we
learn from our defeats,
hopefully, and move on to
renewed hope. With the
help of the government
bailouts, the economy will
pick up. There will be new
regulations and checkpoints
set up that will protect our
money from less-than-
honest individuals who will
be held accountable for
honesty and taken to task
for anything less.
I see a migration coming


our way of people living in
South Florida around the
Miami area. This will create
new markets, jobs and
spending, especially from
the Hispanic community.
They will also bring their
culture and stimulate new
interest in spreading
international arts and
sciences. Our area and
country is becoming fully
integrated and open to new
ideas and culture, from the
presidency on down.

ing. One of her recent

waitress, at the 'Catfish
House in Hobe Sound will
soon be doing some of her
own fishing, thanks to a
very generous tip.
Cindy Brown is now the
proud owner of a fully
equipped 26-foot Sham-
rock,, with a 350 Ford
engine, a boat perfect for
the fun outings and fish-
ing trips the seasoned
boater plans.
"I'm still in shock," Ms.
Brown said. "I didn't
believe it. Once I saw this
boat it was much more
than I expected. It looked
like a ship to me."
The boat was a gift from
a frequent customer who's
been eating at the restau-
rant for two years.
The customer, who
asked not to be named in
this article, has homes in
Hobe Sound and New Jer-.
sey. He said he was so
impressed with the Ms.
Brown's level of service
that he requested one of
her tables on every visit.
He also brought his 96-
year-old parents to the
restaurant, and they soon
became friends with Ms.
Brown, who helped with
errands, such as trips to
the grocery store.
"I never expected any-
thing like this," Ms. Brown
said about the gift.
But it was the perfect
present for the avid
boater, who has a captain's
license, has worked on
ships in the Caribbean
and has enjoyed boating
since 1974.
She once owned a 25-
foot Angler, but that boat
was destroyed during Hur-
ricane Wilma in 2005. Ms.
Brown said she had no
insurance on the vessel
and was never able to
replace it.
Her long-time customer
heard the story and decid-
ed to give the waitress a
tip she would never forget.

"I almost died. I just

But the act of generosity

One resident helped tow

helped by lending pumps

jobs on the boat.
"Everybody just helped
me so much," Ms. Brown
said. "I can't thank, them

The news was picked up
in the national press and
brought media attention
for the waitress.
The television show

story, while talk show host

"It's been a blessing all

said.
She said she wanted to

had never been on a boat.
"It's a gorgeous boat.
This will be fun," she said.

RURAL SIMPLICITY
If your interior features coun-
try decor, select fabrics and
treatments for curtains that
are simple in design and pat-
tern. After the Civil War, most
country homes in America
were left with bare windows
.prior to the introduction of
gaslight. It is this image of pre-
gaslight windows that evokes
our image of the proper coun-
try curtain. They should evoke
a mood of freshness and puri-
ty, and they should be ideally
made of natural cotton, linen,
or wool. Among the most
desirable fabrics for country
curtains-are flowery chintzes,
white or eggshell-colored
sheers, and toiles de Jouy
(printed textiles in the classic
French style). These fabrics
may be used to create country
curtains that appear soft and
almost lighter than air.
Those natural fabrics are not
only a beautiful look; they are
also better for the environ-
ment. If you want a look that is
both stylish and eco-friendly,
give us a call. We have more
than 20 years of experience
creating stunning spaces that
use earth-friendly principles to
promote balance, prosperity,
health, and harmony in your
life. We are located at 1565
SW Martin Hwy., Palm City.

associated with country cur-
tains are ruffles, gingham,

diabetic retinopathy doesn't mean
you must give up driving.
Ever look ilrough a pair of field glasses

specialist with offices in Ft. Lauderdale,

"People don't know that there are
doctors who are very. experienced in low

Dorothy Weston, 80, from Broward
County, Florida was unable to perform
her job as a bookkeeper before visiting
Dr. Gannon. She received a pair of spe-
cial tele-microscope glasses for reading
her spreadsheets. "I am thrilled to be able
to keep working", said Dorothy.
"A while back I worked with a world
class tournament bridge player who could
no longer see the cards in her hand or on
dithe table" said Dr. Gannon. "I designed a
special splittele-microscope system far her
designed to function like a bifocal". "Tihe
top part allowed her to see the cards on the
table and the bottom was for her land".
Telescopic glasses usually cost over
$2000, says Dr. Gannon, especially if we
build them with an automatic sunglass.
Ellen nImbodcn traveled from Sweden
and was helped with two pairs of glasses:
special $475 prismatic glasses, that let
her read newsprint, as well as bioptic
telescopes to continue driving in Sweden.
Low vision devices are not always
expensive. Some reading glasses cost as little
as $475 and some magnifiers $100. Every
case is different because people have
different levels of vision and different desires.

Predictions
From page Al i
see that the new mindset of
thrift and less waste will
continue to keep inflation in
check. I believe that the
essential goodness in every
living soul will prevail. An
example of this is how we are
driving less and the price of
gasoline has been cut in half
or more. Being thrifty pays.
Many local families have
suffered with their homes. It
has been tough. I believe that
the real estate market will
begin to recover and turn
around in the spring and
summer. Patience is the
greatest virtue.
Street crime has always
been with us. Take precau-
tionary measures when you
go out, even if for a loaf of
bread. Park in an open area
and lock your car. Take only
the money you need with
you. The law enforcement
officers are doing all they can.
Help our anywayyou canto
bridge the gap as a citizen to
keep our hometowns safe.
And last but not least,
Hometown News. Ah, the
wonderful Hometown News. I
had a dream recently and,
saw the paper adding three -
new editions in2009. They
were to the west and north. In
the near future, the paper will
grow regionally and national-
ly. Just think, we were all here
at the beginning and contin-
uetobeblessedbyits
outreach. Thanks Vernon
Smith, Steve Erlanger,
Tammy Raits, Phil Galdys and
all the other loyal staff who
create this magic each week
for all of us to feast upon and
savor.
You might think, "James,
you didn't make any negative
predictions." I have a saying,
"In a garden there are flowers
and weeds. Don't feed the
weeds. Feed the flowers."
My greatest wish foryou is
that your flowers and beauty
"shine in 2009." We have
made it this far. There is still a
ways to go. Now is not the
time to give up. It's time to go
inside, feed the inner spirit,
raise it up, bring it our and set
it free.
You can do it. Yoiihappi-
ness in the new:year
depends on it. May life's
richest blessing fill and
overflowyour life each and
every day.

Precious Metals
A mere glance at, a pre-
cious metals web-site will
confirm that 2008 has been
indeed a year of extreme
ups and downs. Gold hit its
peak of $1,020 an ounce
-on March 17, just to drop
down to about $910 'an
ounce on March 20, a
decline of $100 in just 3
days. That same month
platinum prices rose to
nearly $2,300 an ounce on
March 4, but by March 10,
fell $350 to about $1,950 an
ounce. What makes' this
situation somewhat unique
is not the price of precious
metals, it's the volatility.
Major changes in the span
of'a couple df weeks and in
some cases, a couple of
days, have left the con-
sumer and the refiner
somewhat shell-sloclked.
A customer turning in mbtal
for refining on Monday
could see as much.as a
$60 swing in that metal's
price by the end of the
week, making planning for
a business difficult. The
price pendulum also swings
the other way-favoring
customers. At one point a
company paid $2,000 an.
ounce for platinum, only to
have the price drop $1,000
before the refiner could
move the metal. In the end,
the violent price swings are
not good for anyone manu-
facturers, retailers, refiners
or customers. What goes

Investigators find stolen items in toilet


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
The toilet in room No. 432
at the Holiday Inn in Port
St. I.ucie gave a Martin
County deputy his best
lead in a theft investiga-
tion.
A trip to the hotel rest-
room led to a big payday
for criminal investigations
division detective, Carlo
Sciandra, who said a look
into a suspect's toilet led to
the recovery of a stolen
handgun, jewelry and
other items.
Investigators arrived at
the hotel after they got a
tip that suspect, Robert
Joseph Murray Jr. of Port St.
Lucie, had checked in.
They were investigating a
report from Jensen Beach
resident Mathew Hiner,


who said that a Ruger
semiautomatic handgun,
23 pieces of jewelry valued
at about $10,000, prescrip-
tion drugs, $480 and per-
sonal identification infor-
mation were missing from
his apartment.
Mr. Murray was a guest
at the apartment on Dec.
18, and Mr. Hiner turned
on the burglar alarm
before going to bed,
according to the arrest
report.
But. when the alarm
sounded during the night,
Mr. Hiner told investiga-
tors he found the front
door open and Mr. Murray
no longer asleep on the
couch.
Deputies eventually
found Mr. Murray renting a
room at the Holiday Inn.
"He appeared nervous,
denied any wrongdoing


Robert Joseph Murray

and was evasive as .to his
days' activities prior to
arrival at the Holiday Inn,"
Detective Sciandra said.
But the 21-year-old man
would later change his
story and admit taking the
items without permission,
investigators said.
During the interview,


Detective Sciandra asked
to use the restroom.
"I attempted to flush the
toilet and noticed that the
bowl would not flush," he
stated in the arrest report.
"I removed the cover to the
tank in hopes of correcting
the problem and discov-
ered a Ruger (semiauto-
matic) handgun and three
magazines with bullets,
resting on top of the valve
flap."
The gun matched the
description of the missing
weapon, investigators said.
Mr. Murray, 21, of 2561
S.W. Kaycee Court, Port St.
Lucie, faces two felony
charges, grand theft and
grand theft of a firearm.
His attorney did not
comment by press time.
Mr. Murray remained at
the Martin County Jail on
$25,000 bond.

Keep empty lots clean

Houses are being foreclosed on at record breaking
speed. With-the foreclosures come vacant homes. With
the vacant homes come lawns that are not maintained.
Not a lot you, as a neighbor, can do, unless you end up
with snakes and rats, as I did.
There is something you can change though, the litter
thrown in our driveways. If you just pick it up and throw,
it away, call these' companies and request they no longer
throw their litter. It worked for me. You would think that
they would have the common sense not to throw papers
in driveways with foreclosure or for sale signs or that are
evidently vacant, but, alas, it is not so.
.With the foreclosures, unkempt yards and litter in the
driveways, our property values are going down, down,
down. It's a little thing, just a phone call, or two or three
away, but, you can help clean up your neighborhood.
And your neighborhood may be mine.

The weekend before

office for its academic per-
formance.
There was good news for
Indiantown too, as the area
won the community of the
year award from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
for its efforts to promote
growth while protecting the
environment.
Also winning applause
were local charity groups
and nonprofits, such as
Molly's House, White Dove
and Helping People Suc-
ceed, who reported meeting
their goals, despite the
tough economy.


is lying to its customers
when they say that the red
tag price is the price you
pay. The red tag price is not
the price a Florida car buyer
pays. In addition, she also
pays any amount the dealer
chooses to add to the red tag
price, which he can also
name anything he wants.
In Florida there is no limit
on how much a dealer can
charge for a dealer fee. I
know of Florida dealers
'charging at least $1,000 and
I know of one Georgia dealer
charging $2,350. These two
dealers happen to be Toyota
dealers, but I'll bet there are
GM dealers who have fees in
that ballpark.
Have you noticed how
many Wall Street people are
going to jail lately? How
about that Bernie Madoff?
Not only did he carry off the
biggest swindle in the
history of the world, but he


mainly swindled his friends
and charities. The invest-
ment banks lost so much
trust, that they have had to
convert to conventional
banks. The public has lost so
much trust in the govern-
ment that anytime a
government official goes on
TV, the stock market drops. I
actually heard a commenta-
tor on CNBC says that
traders are making profit by
shorting the market when-
ever Hank Paulson appears
live on TV and then covering
as soon as he's off the air.
The banks don't trust the
borrowers and are afraid to
lend money. They don't
believe the appraisals and
they don't believe the
accuracy of the credit
statement. The borrowers
don't trust government, so

From page A7
worthy, are afraid to borrow
money for fear things will
get much, much worse. We
have lots of companies and
individuals with large sums
of cash just sitting by
because they have no trust
in our country's future.
I can't solve the problems
of the world, but I can offer'
some very good advice to
car manufacturers and
dealers. When your cus-
tomers trust you, they will
part with their money and
do business with you.
Unfortunately, it's not easy
to restore trust.
You can't run an ad that
says "trust me" when you've
been lying to your cus-
tomers for years. You can
only earn back that trust a
little bit at a time. The good
news is that once you earn
the trust of one customer,
he will tell a dozen or more
of his friends. Trust grows
exponentially. However
trust requires sacrifice. You
have to forego the "fast
buck." You can't advertise a
sale unless it's real. That
means you really are selling
your cars for less than you
did last week and it usually
helps to have an honest
reason for why you will do
that.
You need to quit charg-
ing that dealer fee and
include all of your profit in
the price you quote your


customers.You need to
give your customers your
best price when they ask
for it by e-mail, over the
phone or in person. If they
ask for copy of their
paperwork, the buyer's
order, give them a copy.
Yes, they might use that to
compare your price with
the competition, but that is
their right in our free
marketplace.
Never give a prospective
customer a price below
what you know is possible
to bring him back and then
try to raise it when she
does (this is called the low-
ball).


By just being honest,
respectful and courteous to
each of your customers,
you will eventually win
back their trust, and when
that happens, there will be
no more recession.

By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
,STUART Last year,
when Elaina Newport and
the Capitol Steps came to
Stuart, there had been no
New Hampshire primary,
John McCain seemed out of
the running and the race
was clearly between Hillary
Clinton and Rudy Giuliani.
What a difference a year
makes.
As the non-partisan polit-
ical satirists prepare to
return to the Lyric Theatre
on Jan. 16, Ms. Newport
spoke from Washington,
D.C., about the past year
and the future.
"What a busy year," she
said. "We had to rewrite
everything. The Mitt Rom-
ney song is gone. When
Sarah Palin was announced,
we had to Google her along
with everyone else. At first
we used Alaska jokes, like
mortgages on igloos, but
you could: not have made
up a moose-hunting beauty
queen," she said.
The group, which started
in 1981 with mostly Repub-
lican staffers from Capitol
Hill, skewers everyone.
"Comedians root for
what's funnier, not what's
good for the country," she
said.
The group is a little con-
cerned about the comedic
potential of President-elect
Barack Obama.
"He may be the straight
man in the middle," she
said. "We're counting on Joe
Biden and Hillary Clinton.
It's kind of like what we

trum at the Lyric Theatre on Jan. 16.


faced with the first George
Bush. He wasn't buffoonish,
but we could count on Dan
Quayle."
"We do have a song about
Barack and the press giving
him a free ride, called
'Obama Mia.' We have a
song about Obama naming
Clinton secretary of state,
called'Ebony and Ovaries."'
The current tour will also
close the book on GeorgeW.
Bush.
"We're talking about his
legacy," Ms. Newport said.'
"One of the last things he'll
do is a flyover of the entire
country to assess the dam-
age done by his presidency."
Sometimes, the group has
to tackle issues that aren't
funny at all, like the war, the


economy and Hurricane
Katrina.
"We always worry," Ms.
Newport said. "You have to
find an angle people will
accept. With Katrina, it was
FEMA and 'You're doing a
heck of a job, Brownie.'"
"We do a song about the
economy to 'YMCA' called
'40oK.' We debuted it on the
day the stock market
dropped. The reaction was,
'we might as well laugh.' We
make fun of the politicians
who have gotten us into the
mess."
Ms. Newport will miss the
current administration and
is not comforted by the
notion that another Bush,
Jeb, may seek a Senate seat
in Florida.


"He's the bright one of the
family," she said. "Of course,
that's like being the world's
tallest midget."
They are glad to be
returning to Florida, the
state that gave them the
2000 recount, Mark Foley
and, this year, Tim
Mahoney.
"We have to come down
each year to thank the peo-
ple of Florida," she said.
"You must be so proud."

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 01-02-2009


Aries-March 21-April 19
The main season for your
success is all the hard work
and devotion to duties.
Whether it is family, work or
friends, you always sense
what needs to be done and
then do it. You are commit-
ted, involved and passion-
ate. You are highly deserving
of life's greatest riches. Keep
it up and 2009 will be your
best year ever.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Taking care of family and
others with. greater needs
than your own just recon-
firms your large heart and
spirit. What you give out
always comes back multi-
plied, although you don't do
it for personal gain. It just
shows what a fine person
you have grown into. Happy
New Year. Watch your
finances. Don't go over-
board on "can't live with-
outs." Quality time is far
greater than a quantity of
things. The rewards of the
personal touch are great for
all.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your creativity is especially
strong now. You will meet
life's challenges in the New
Year with your usual style
and luck. Why? Because you
have a guardian angel
watching over you. Most of
the things you worry about
are not going to happen
anyway. The key is to take
care of details as they arrive
Sso you don't have to put out
any forest fires later.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You have approached the'
holidays with gratitude and
thankfulness for all you
accomplished the past year.
You have a firm direction for
the new one coming. Keep
a strong focus on your top
goals and you will do much
more. The way you back up
your plans with action will
continue to insure success.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
The ideas continue to flow,
and the light bulbs keep on
turning on. One good idea is
always the birth mother to
several others hanging
around. Get ready for more.
'The New Year will be filled
and exploding with many
new opportunities. The key
is to focus on the ones that
make you the happiest first.
Success is sure to follow.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
When you set a plan in
motion and your heart is in
it, move it forward. Refuse to
let worry, doubt or indeci-
sion set in or get you side-
tracked. If you aren't sure,
ask for advice or just wait.
Then with renewed clarity,
move forward again. Pain,
hardship or struggle is your
gut instinct telling you to be
patient. Heed this warning.
Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You have grown so much
spiritually the past year.
Why? Because you are more
centered. You worry less.
Your self-confidence has
increased. You have much
new respect from family and
friends. The main reason for
this is all the love you show
to others. When you are
happy others are happy. You
are so much fun to be
around.

holidays are a strong time of
the year for, you. The New
Year will offer even more.
Your instincts are sharp. Your
mind is working clearly. Your
spirit is strong. This is more
than enough energy to pro-
pel you forward toward your
dreams. You have a high
blessing on your life.
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Creative projects want to
grow and become fruitful.
Use your imagination. Be
inventive. Bring your ideas,
visions and inspirations into
reality now. Make them real.
The only limits are what you
place on yourself. Dare to be
different. Now others want
to hang around just to see
what you are dreaming up
next. You were born for'
greatness.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
With the sun, Mars and Pluto
in Capricorn, you are super-
charged and ready to roll in
the New Year. Be totally hon-
est with yourself on your
desires: Clear up old issues.
Begin the New Year lighter
and hopeful. Get straight to
the point. Move ahead and
watch the universe bless you
with results even you will be
amazed at.


you truly want. Then write it
down. This makes a strong
commitment. Now energy is
in your favor. Move out of
your comfort zone. You have
an opportunity for awesome
growth. Now, it's all up to
you to make it happen.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
There is a silver lining behind
every cloud, as the old say-
ing goes. When one plan
doesn't work out, it means a
better one is just ahead. Per-
severance is your best friend.
You have plenty of it. Quit-
ting is not an option. Try
looking at things from a dif-
ferent angle. Move forward
when the vision is clear. You
will continue to overcome
any new challenges with
ease.

Treasure Coast's


top 10 sports stories


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
Another year has come
and gone and so it's time to
reflect on the most impor-
tant stories in the news
arena the ones that filled
the sports pages last year.
1. Bulldogs and Indians
and Panthers (football), oh,
my! Nowhere did the glow of
the lights on Friday night
shine brighter than it did on
South Fork, Vero Beach and
Fort Pierce Westwood. All
three teams had successful
seasons, solidifying their
places among the state's
best.
Despite not repeating as
district champs, South Fork
remained in the playoff hunt
longer than the other area
elite.
After defeating Spanish
River to reach the postsea-
son, South Fork traveled to
Melbourne to face a Palm
Bay team that had lost just
once all season.:
Unfazed, the 8Bulldogs
jumped out in front 21-7
after Ronnie Nelsonr con-
nected with Jason Thomp-
son on an 11-yard touch-
down. Palm Bay rallied to
pull within 21-20, but inex-
plicably went for two to try
and win the game.
The Pirates pass 'attempt
was knocked down in the
end zone, giving South Fork.
its second playoff victory in
the program's 27-year histo-
ry.
No. 3 came the following
week, as South Fork raced to
an early lead over Atlantic
and held on for a 35-28 vic-
tory. Willie Walker scored'
three touchdowns, includ-
ing one with just over-four
minutes left in the game to
seal the win.
Unfortunately, the Bull-
dogs magic carpet ride


U


ended in the Region 4-5A
title game against state pow-
erhouse St. Thomas
Aquinas, but finishing the
season at 9-4 was quite the
trick.
Vero Beach delivered its
second consecutive district
title with a 27-24 victory over
Seminole Ridge. It then won
its Region 2-6A quarterfinal
matchup with Park Vista
before falling to Royal Palm
Beach the next week to fin-
ish the season at 9-3.
Fort Pierce Westwood fol-
lowed down a similar path.
The Panthers won their sec-
ond district crown in a row
with a 14-7 win over Sebast:
ian River and was even more
impressive in their playoff
opener.
Taking on Boca Raton,
Westwood raced out to a 7-0
lead in the opening
moments of the game when
Khalil Mack snatched an
errant handbff but of the air
and stormed 33 yards for the
touchdown.
But the Panthers couldn't
keep the momentum going
and fell behind WT. Dwyer
31-0 in the regional semifi-
nal before a late Leon Short-
er touchdown prevented the
shutout. Despite the loss,
Westwood's 10-2 season
gave a glimpse of what lies
ahead for the Fort Pierce
faithful.
2. Martin County and St.
Lucie West Centennial roll
to bowling crowns.
While both the Martin
County boys and St. Lucie
Centennial girls bowling
teams each won a state
bowling championship, the
squads traveled 4own slight-
ly different lanes to reach
their destinations. ,
Unlike Centennial, Martin
County was making its first
trip to the state tourney. It

Martin County B7


Basketball player hopes for another holiday present


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
STUART Although
Tigers' hoopster Quamain
Foreman was eagerly await-
ing the arrival of Santa
Claus, he hopes one of his
Christmas presents is a little
late this year: a state cham-
pionship.
"I believe he's going to
bring me something," Fore-
man said. "I've been a good
kid this year."
Foreman has done equally
as well in trying to help Mar-
tin County achieve its goals
of postseason glory.
While only St. Nick knows
whether Foreman belongs
on the naughty or nice list,
on the basketball court, he's
been a little bit of both in
helping the Tigers to an
undefeated record.
"You can't even measure
what he brings (to the
team)," head coach Andre
McIntyre said. "Scoring,
rebounding and assists.
"He is a consummate bas-
ketball player."
Foreman's skills were on
display in the Tigers' last two
games. The senior had 16
points, as the Tigers pulled
away for an 85-51 victory
over Monarch recently.
He followed that up with a
13-point showing in Martin
County's 72-52 win over
Lake Wales in the Traveniere
Classic at Sebring High
School. The victory not only
boosted the Tigers' record to
7-0, but stretched the team's
regular season winning
streak to 20, four shy of the
school's record of 24 that
spanned the 1975-76 and
1976-77 seasons.
"Our expectations coming


into this season we're pretty
high because of what we
accomplished last year,"
Foreman said. "Obviously,
we can't live off last year, but
you can see we're doing
pretty good."
Few seasons can match
what Martin County was
able to pull off in 2007-08.
The team raced to an 8-0
mark before losing to W.T.
Dwyer. Martin County
rebounded with a good all-
around win over Sebastian
River and didn't look back.
The Tigers advanced to
the district championship
game, but had to face Dwyer
for the crown. Martin Coun-
ty rose to the occasion, win-
ning a nail biter, 73-69 to.
give the school its first tro-
phy since 2002.
"It felt good," Foreman
said. "Coach had us playing
at a high level."
From there, Martin Coun-
ty dispatched Treasure
Coast in the Region 4-5A
quarterfinal before meeting
Dwyer yet again the semifi-
nals. The result was the
same as the previous
encounter with the Tigers
pulling out a 1 -pbint win.
In the Region 4-5A final
Martin County faced top-
ranked Fort Lauderdale Dil-
liard. Although the team
gave a herculean effort, Dil-
liard's size advantage was
too much to overcome.
Martin County lost 74-56.
Despite the setback, the
team finished an impressive
25-2.
"We faced it and now we
see what we have to do to
get better," Foreman said.
Last season's run was even
more memorable for the 18-
year-old because it was his


first at Martin County. Fore-
man transferred over from
South Fork, getting a chance
to not only play for one of
the most storied programs
in the area, but also for
McIntyre who also doubles
as his uncle.
"He brings out the best in
his players," Foreman said.
"(Last year) was a good
experience. It was real nice
playing in an environment
like Martin County. I fit in
just right."
Foreman worked hard in
the offseason to prepare for


this year's campaign. He
knew he w6uld be called
upon to be one of the team's
leaders with the graduation
of former all-star Ridge Gra-
ham.
"I am a good talker, but I
try not to tell people how to
play," Foreman said. "Coach
brought me in at the begin-
ning of the season and said,
'"Q," I need you to be a more
vocal leader, to do a little bit
extra.'
"Now, I try to be a more
vocal leader on and off the
court."


Some of that leadership
has been on display in the
early stages of this season.
While Foreman is confident
Martin County has the
desire and talent to achieve
his aspirations of a champi-
onship, he knows the oppo-
sition is not just going to gift
wrap it for them.
"We have to stay focused,"
Foreman said. "We have to
believe in ourselves. We
have to think that anybody
that wants to go to state has
to go through Martin Coun-
ty."

looked to be a quick one
after the Tigers suffered a
loss on the first day of com-
petition to Oviedo.
Martin County quickly
rebounded and didn't lose
again with each victory
being more impressive than
the one before. However, the
team had to defeat Oviedo
twice in order to avoid going
home empty handed.
The Tigers did just that,
securing the title with
impressive performances by
T.J. Baral, Tyler Westling,
Matt Gauroniak and Casey
Dockerill.
After having already
established themselves as
one of the best teams in the
state, the Eagles made it'offi-
cial with a dominating run
through the tournament.
Like it had done all season,
Centennial made it look
easy, beating Gulliver Prep
and Cypress Creek in open-
ing-round action.

Seabreeze in the semifinals,
St. Lucie West faced Oviedo
for the gold. Centennial pol-
ished off the state power in
five games to finally add a
team state championship to
its trophy case.
The team had come up
short in their three previous
trips to the finals with only
Amanda Stinehart's individ-
ual crown in2006 to show for
their efforts.
3. South Fork and John
Carroll reach state baseball
finals. Making the trek to the
FHSAA finals in Sarasota,
both South Fork and John
Carroll illustrated the
strength of Treasure Coast
baseball to their con-
stituents across the state.
Capping their best season
in school history, South Fork
earned a spot in the 5A tide
game with a scintillating 3-0
victory over Niceville in the
seinifinals, as Tyson Young
held the opposition to one
hit.
Squaring off against
Dunedin, South Fork fell
behind 2-0 before rallying
for single runs in the third
and fifth. The team
appeared poised to win the
game, loading the bases with
no outs in the seventh
inning.
However, the Bulldogs
couldn't capitalize and the
Falcons pulled out a 3-2 win
in 10 innings. South Fork fin-
ished 27-6, capturing both
the district and regional
titles along the way.
John Carroll had an excel-
lent season as well. The

Rams were the beneficiaries
of a superb outing by ace T.J.
Mullins, who allowed just
four hits and one earned run
in a 5-2 victory over Key-
stone Heights in the state
semifinals.
The team's luck ran out
after that, as shoddy play in
the field and a top-ranked
opponent was more than
the Rams could overcome.
John Carroll committed five
errors against a Plantation-
American Heritage team
tapped No. 1 by Baseball
America.
The 8-2 loss didn't dimin-
ish the team's 24-6 record,
which appears poised for
another run in 2009.
4. Tigers' basketball team
claw their'way to regional
final. Used to exceptional
starts, the 2007-08 version of
the Martin County boys bas-
ketball team was no differ-
ent, as the Tigers jumped out
to an 8-0 mark. After suffer-
ing a narrow 87-73 defeat to
state power W.T. Dwyer, they
quickly rebounded to defeat
a solid Sebastian River team
to move back into the win
column.
From there, the victories
continued to pile up with
Martin County advancing to
the district title game for the
first time since 2003. Facing
Dwyer for the crown, the
Tigers won Round 2, 73-69
to earn its first champi-
onship in six years.
Martin County brushed
aside Treasure Coast in the
Region 4-5A quarterfinal
before meeting Dwyer for
the third time. The game was
even closer than the previ-
ous two with the Tigers
eking out a 1-point win.
The regional final proved
to be a little bit tougher, as
the Tigers couldn't overcome
a decided height disparity
and lost 74-56 to top-ranked
Fort Lauderdale-Dillard.
Facing an experienced
senior front line whose
shortest player was 6-foot-7,

Sports
From page B8
Martin County fell behind
early and was down at half-
time 38-21. The Tigers rallied
in the game's closing
moments, hitting six 3-
pointers to pull within 58-
46. It wasn't enough, but the
Tigers still finished the sea-
son an impressive 25-2.
5. Pirates sail to super
season. While classified as a
Pee Wee football team, the
Port St. Lucie Pirates Pop
Warner squad played like
giants for most of the sea-
son.
The team steamrolled
through their first 15 con-
tests, winning games with
relative ease. Case in point
was the Pirates' 34-6 victory
over the Flagler Bulldogs to
capture the Southeast
Region title. Port St. Lucie
dominated on both sides of
the ball with Juan Larralde
rushing for two touchdowns
with Jeremy Miret adding on
of his own.
Defensively, Josh Pantale-
on and Desmond Cain both
returned, interceptions for
touchdowns in helping the
Pirates secure their spot in
the 52nd Pop Warner Super
Bowl.
In Orlando, Port St. Lucie
faced one of the top pro-
grams in the country in the
Union Road (N.C.) Jaguars.
The Pirates didn't blink and
held the advantage on three
separate occasions before
succumbing to the Jaguars
28-22.
Port St. Lucie didn't leave
the Disney Wide World of
Sports Complex empty
handed, however, by virtue
of its 33-0 win over the Port
Arthur Cowboys in the third-
place game to finish the sea-
son at 16-1.
6. Sebastian River
wrestler pins down state
title. In 2007, Vince' Maul
made it to the final match of
the 2A state tournament in
the 160-pound weight class,
only to lose to Tom Timothy
of Brandon in a grueling
bout.
A year later, Maul went
through the regular season
undefeated, before taking
first in the 1.71-pound class
Vat the District 13-2A touria-
ment. Next up was the
Region 4-2A competition
where he upped his record
to 36-0, earning the tap
against Musa De'Reese of
Titusville.
At the Florida High School
Athletic Association finals,
Maul made short work of his
first-round opponent before
winning by default in the
quarterfinals. The semifinals
'featured Maul taking on
Jacob Harmer of Gainesville,
who himself sported an
impressive 55-0 record.
The match went into over-
time before Maul pulled out
the victory. On Feb. 16 -
almost a year to the day that
the Sebastian River wrestler
lost in the state finale a year
earlier Maul pinned Kyle
Provencal of Charlotte in
just 44 seconds to become a
state champion.
7. Sports figures earn the
wrong kinds of headlines.
While sports usually offers a
respite from the bad news,
several instances proved
that no area is immune.
Despite all the success the
Sebastian River baseball
team 'has had over the past
few seasons including the
school's second district title
in 2008 several reported
instances off the field has
overshadowed all the Sharks
have achieved on it.
Most notably was the


reported hazing incident
that took place at a Planta-
tion hotel in March while the
team was participating in a
tournament. Five team
members were suspended
from school while head
coach George Young and
assistant Chris Rahal were
placed on a leave of absence.
Following an investiga-
tion, three of the students
were sent to the Alternative
Center for Education in lieu
of a formal expulsion while
Rahal was issued a repri-
mand for not reporting the
incident immediately to
administration.
Young took the hardest
hit, as the only head coach
in Sharks' history was
relieved of his position.
Several months later, two
Sebastian River Middle
School eighth-grade soccer
players were charged with
two felony counts each,
including attempted sexual
battery on a child, stemming
from a reported incident
involving a six-grade team-
mate.
Saint Edward's also gar-
nered attention, but for the
wrong reasons. The school
hired one of the top coaches
in the state in Leroy Foster,
only to dismiss him a short
time later after details of his
sexual trysts with a Pahokee
secretary while he was coach
there came to light.
8. Vero girls wrestling
team makes it two in a row.
After winning the state
championship in dominat-
ing fashion in 2007, the Vero
Beach girls wrestling team
had a tougher road to travel
in trying for the repeat. The
Indians were unable to field
a full team, leaving four
weight classes out of 14
unfilled.
Despite the disadvantage,
Vero Beach made it to the
state tournament, but was
behind by two points head-
ing into the finals. Cherelle
DeBose pinned a wrestler
that had defeated her three
times to keep Vero Beach's
chances -alive and Savanna
Duffy, Mercedes McKenzie
and Bridget Siers also won
their final matches to help
propel the Indians to the
crbwn. The foursome also
won individual.- champi-
onships as well.
9. Third time is charm for
Vero Beach girls lacrosse.
While the Vero Beach girls
wrestling team's perform-
ance was outstanding, the
accomplishments of their.
classmates were a little bit
better. After years of coming
up short, the Vero Beach
girls lacrosse squad became
the team to beat in Florida,
winning their third state title
in a row.
After two, crowns in the
Florida Lacrosse League, the
Indians crushed the Park
Vista Cobras 18-2 in the
inaugural Florida High
School Athletic Association
State Lacrosse Champi-
onship.
10. Dodgers say goodbye,
Orioles don't say enough.
For more than 60 years, the
Dodgers called Vero Beach
their spring training home.
With the team, opting for
more lavish surroundings in
Arizona, Vero Beach had one
last chance to cheer on its
heroes before the team
headed out west for the final
time. Fittingly enough, the
Dodgers lost. More than
7,000 people attended.
With, the Dodgers gone,
city and county officials
turned to the Orioles as pos-
sible tenants. for Holman
Stadium. An offer was made
in October, but a revised

contract that was rejected by
the Indian River County
Commission on Dec. 16.
The offer was rescinded,
leaving Vero Beach without
spring training for the fore-
seeable future.
