Despite tough year, real estate


agents give back to community


By Samantha Joseph

'MARTIN COUNTY -
Despite the downturn in
the economy that
slammed the Treasure
Coast housing market,
local real estate agents
made several contribu-
tions to the county's
underprivileged.
Among their efforts was
a donation to Habitat for
Humanity, an interna-
tional nonprofit .group
that works to end home-
lessness.
In December, the Real-
tor Association of Martin
County contributed $925
as part of an annual
donation to the housing
group.
It was one of several


gifts, including a toy drive
for White Doves, a Martin
County charity that serves
more than 1,200 families
each year.
"The collection of toys
was outstanding. Our goal.
is to brighten the lives of
families in our communi-
ty this'holiday season,"
said Realtor association
President Vince Laviano.
"Thanks to the generos-
ity of our members, we
have made great strides to
accomplish that."
But thp gifts came at a
time when rising unem-
ployment has hurt the
housing sector. I

STUART Joshua Bell is
widely regarded as one of the
premier violinists of his g6n-.
eration.
Since his debut at 14 with
the Philadelphia Orchestra,
Mr. Bell, now 41, has estab-

Mr. Bell returns to the Lyric

participated in a conference

upcoming concert tour and

Mr. Bell and his accompa..

"It's a little different kind of

Runner finishes 100th marathon in Florida


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com

STUART It's altogether fitting
that Harry Hoffman Jr. Competed in
his first marathon at DisneyWorld.
Only Mickey Mouse has been
running longer than him.
The Stuart resident recently com-
pleted his 100th marathon within
the state, finishing the appropriate-
ly titled Florida Marathon in Cler-
mont in 4:50:45.
\ "People say to me, how can I run
them?" Hoffman said. "I tell them,
because I can."
It was also the 165th long-dis-,
tance race of his distinguished
career.
"I've done 148 marathons and 17
ultras," Hoffman said. "An ultra is
anything over 26.2 miles. I do 50k
races which are 31.3 miles."
While the numbers speak for
themselves, an even more remark-
able set of digits is Hoffman's age
and starting point. The 68-year-old


began competing when he was 54,
only a year after first picking up the
sport.
"I worked at the hospital and a
friend suggested going running,"
Hoffman said. "I thought why? They,
had already invented the wheel.
"I was a little overweight so I tried
it. I haven't taken my shoes off. It's
one of the more tougher sports, but
you get the most. bang for, your
buck."
After steadily increasing his run-
ning distances, Hoffman was ready
to tackle the Magic Kingdom in
1995.
"The most I had done up until
that point was 13 miles," Hoffman
said. "I anticipated the distance, not
knowing how to do it.
"I knew Disney had 26 water
stops, so I ran to the water stops. I
ran the first one in 4:18.
"When I finished I was quite
amazed. I thought 'this is quite an
accomplishment.'"

Community plans last dance

for father and daughter


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
Tanya Costello wants to be
cheerful.
At 15, she understands
that her family is at a
turning point.
On a recent Monday, her
father, Vincent Costello, has
returned from a round of
radiation. It's his 50th





772.26.782


cancer treatment. He's also
had 36 doses of chemother-
apy.
"It wears you down pretty
good," Mr. Costello said.
He's 51, weak and losing
control of his body to lung
cancer.
But Mr. Costello is
determined to go to a party.
And he wants to take Tanya
with him.
"She's getting to be a big
girl, and having a sweet 16
(celebration)," he said.
"We're so happy and proud
about that. I can't wait to
walk her down the aisle."
That walk will take place
a lot sooner than he
expected.
When he was diagnosed
with lung cancer at age 50,
the Jensen Beach man
confided to friends that his
biggest dream had been to


walk his daughter down the
'aisle on her wedding day.
But the disease has
spread to his brain, and
doctors say it's unlikely that
his dream will come true.:
So on Jan. 9,,about a
month before her birthday,
Tanya is set to celebrate her
sweet 16 in style,.thanks to
the efforts of several people
touched by her story.
"We're hoping there's a
miracle out there," said
Marian Callahan, a family
friend who helped rally
community support for the
event.
The festivities will start
with a limousine pickup for
the family to take them to
the party site at the River-
side Park.

Boys, Girls Club hosts homecoming


" By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY As they said
goodbye to 2008, past and present
Members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of
Martin County met to usher in the
New Year.
It-was the first of several annual
homecomings that the nonprofit
group plans to hold.
The plan is to use these events to
celebrate the accomplishments of
past members and offer support to
the children currently enrolled in the
low-cost after-school program.
The first homecoming, held Dec.
30, featured a family-friendly after-
noon of live entertainment, includ-
ing musical performances, hip-hop
dance numbers and cooking demon-
strations.
It also included an exhibition of
members' art, as part of a national
event by the Boys and Girls Clubs of
America.
It was the group's way of recoghiz-


ing its former members and showing
off the talents of current enrollees,
administrators said.
"This is a great opportunity to wel-
come club members back to a place
that for many, served as a second
home," said Suzanne Wentley, the
group's outreach coordinator.
The event drew wide community
support, including sponsorship, by
several businesses, including "Hobe
Sound" magazine, Winn-Dixie and
Wal-Mart.
And several local artists and art
lovers lent their support to the exhi-
bition.
Among them were retired art
teacher Frances Heims and profes-
sional artists Carol Kepp, Dan
Mackin and Stephen Stone.
The celebration wrapped up a busy
year for the Boys and Girls Clubs of
Martin County.
In 2008, the group renovated its
Cole-Clark branch at 11500 SE Lares
Ave., the site -of the homecoming
party.


"We know they will be just as excit-
ed as we are to see the newly-reno-
vated club and watch the great'per-
formances by the current club
members," Ms. Wentley said of atten-
dees.
It was the latest project of the local
group. Administrators were also at
work relocating the Palm City club,
one of five branches in the county.
That branch had operated out of
borrowed space from the Immanuel
Lutheran Church, but plans to relo-
cate to the old city firehouse at 1150
S.W. Martin Downs Blvd..
"We are thrilled because with the
expanded space, we'll be able to
serve so many more kids," said Jody
Clifford, director of development for
the Martin County clubs.
The organization focuses on teach-
ing children life skills and developing
their talents in arts and leadership,
while paying attention to health and
recreation.

Wristwirstewch"e ,
Thehistor '' ot mist ach ;, w.
know it today goes,'fmi `r4.ahee,.:
back than.onemi,,gt"t'i ,;for:,
the principle of te wristwatch go
back more than' four hundred
years. Compared to that, though,
the history of the production wrist-
watch in the broadest sense of the
work is comparatively modest. It
covers scarcely more than a centu-
ry and a decade. An essential pre-
requisite for the birth of the wrist-
watch, or more appropriately, its
forerunners, was the watchmakers'
progress in terms of technology
and handicraft. Technical develop-
ments such as the invention of the
mainspring, made the portable
clock possible. The perfection of
the handcraft of watchmaking
resulted in, atong other things, the
increasing miniaturization of
watches. The picture is unclear as
to when the first mainspring
"watch" was made, and we can
only be exact to within decades.
On the question of the first use of
mainsprings in watches one can
only determine that it must have
been in France in the late 15th cen-
tury. The name of Peter Henlein of
Nurnberg is always linked with the
first pocket watch. But Enrico
Morpurgo's researches have led
him to conclude that portable
clocks already existed in Italy in
1475. Whatever the truth may be,
-the turn from the 15th to the 16th
century is in any case a significant
point in time regarding the future of
the wristwatch. In Blois in 1518 the
watchmaker Julien Coudrey (1504-
1530) is said to have made two
daggers with small clocks built into
their handles for Louis Xl. In addi-
tion Emperor Charles V is also
mentioned in the history books of
watchmaking. He had a.fondness
for mechanical devices and wore a
ring that was decorated with a tiny
watch. In 1542 the mathematician
Ubaldi is said to have received a '
similar piece of jewelry as a gift. In
addition, there certainly must have
been numerous other personalities
who wore a personal timepiece on
a ring but whose doing so was not
noted in the chronicles.

COMPLEMENTARY
STRATEGIES
When it comes to partnering
patterns .with one another,
there are a few ways to go
about it. One strategy involves
repeating colors from pattern
to pattern in such a way that
the disparate patterns look
like cousins. To provide the
room-with a number of visual
resting places, mix in a few
solids. Another strategy calls
for pairing one-color patterns
with white. Off-white works
well to pull different patterns
together to create visual inter-
est without overwhelming the
space with too much stimula-
tion. Patterns that share the
same color also increase the
compatibility quotient. Lastly,
rooms with ornate woodwork
can use their architectural ele-
ments to set the pattern
tempo. Over-scale patterns
effectively complement hous-
es with strong architecture.
Of course, there's more to
creating a beautiful space
than just balancing the right
mix of patterns. We have more
than 20 years of experience
creating interior spaces that
are beautiful and healthy,
good for you and for the envi-
ronment. We offer mindful
design for homes, offices, and
yachts. We are located at
1565 SW Martin Hwy., Palm
City. Call 561-756-6951 to

'"This is very difficult for his daughter, because
she's been watching her father die. Hopefully,
this party will allow her to be a child again for a
little bit."

Marian Callahan
family friend


father and mother, Susan
Costello, will present to her.
And a videographer is set
to tape the event as a gift to
Tanya, capturing Mr.
Costello walking his
daughter down the aisle,
before sharing a dance with
her.
Family friends and
relatives are also scheduled
to travel from NewYork to
attend.
"This is very difficult for
his daughter, because she's
been watching her father
die," Ms; Callahan said.
"Hopefully, this party will
allow her to be a child again
for a little bit."
But the preparations
come as doctors uncover
new complications that
darken Mr. Costello's
outlook.


For his wife, it means that
she will have to pay even
closer attention to her
husband, whom she now
stays at home to care for
daily.
The last few months have
been the toughest part of
their relationship, which
has spanned nearly three
decades, she said.
For the most part, she
spends her time caring for 1
her husband and trying to
protect her teenage daugh- t
ter from the hardships of
her father's illness.
"I've been very blessed.
She's just such a great kid,"
Mrs. Costello said.
Through it all, she said,
the family has had unend-
ing support from Martin
County residents.
Larry Green, principal of
Seawind Elementary School
in Palm City for instance,
organized a fundraiser for
the Costellos.
And staff of the Dolphin
Bar and Shrimp House,
where Mrs. Costello
worked, have also helped
the family in numerous
ways.
"We have such outra-
geous support," Mrs.
Costello said.
Tanya, meanwhile, is
optimistic about her
father's health and excited
about her special party. .
"Me and my dad are very
close, and it means so -.
much to have this (celebra-
tion) with him," she said. "I
look up to him as my hero.
* No matter what and no
matter how weak he gets,
he's still my hero, and I
appreciate that he is still
there for me."

Support bill to regulate dealer fees

Finally the Florida Legislature may step up and regulate the
"dealer fee" charged by many auto dealerships. According to
Earl Stewart's column in the Hometown News Dec. 26 issue,
Florida House Representative Carl Domino, R-District 83 will
sponsor a bill to regulate this longstanding consumer rip-off.
The dealer fee is additional profit to the dealer and not a
true "fee" at all. It is usually not disclosed until the buyer signs
the contract, where it is added to the purchase price that the
buyer and dealer have negotiated. Dealer fees should not be
allowed at all in Florida, but the political reality is that dealers
have considerable clout in Tallahassee with millions spent on
lobbyists and campaign money. The best consumers can
hope for is that dealer fees are disclosed up front, in newspa-
per, radio and T.V ads and before price negotiations begin.
I'm a victim of this scam. I rushed to a South Florida Toyota
dealer with newspaper ad in hand for a new Corolla. A sales-
man said yes, there was a Corolla in stock at the advertised
price, but only if I signed a contract before the dealership
closed within a few hours. While seated in the finance man-
ager's office, I noticed that an $895 "dealer fee" had been
added to the advertised price of the vehicle. Told that the fee
was not negotiable, I closed on the deal but vowed that I
would never fall for the infamous "dealer fee" scam again.

We need driver's school

There needs to be a driver's school course that makes you
drive around with a.DMV staff member for at least a couple
hours, not just driving around in the parking lot for a few min-
utes and then handing over a license.
Every day I have people who don't use their signals, cut peo-
ple off, talk on cell phones, cross over three lanes in front'of
traffic to get over to that turning lan ride in passing lanes
and even speed up so that you can't pass.
When I spoke with an officer as to why people aren't ever
pulled over for these things, all he could say is that 95 percent
of hiis tickets were speeding.
If this is one thing people are getting penalized for why
nt' th|e other law-breakers getting penalized as well?

What happened to the rants?

Are people not writing in rants and raves or has the paper
cut back on the space given to the column? I really looked for-
ward to this section of the paper.
Can't we vent ouropinion anymore or are we just bottled up
until we explode? Hopefully, the column will get back to the
way it was,
Editor's note: The volume of responses to Rants and Raves is
down significantly. We print what we receive. Readers?

Turn down the TV music

Why do all TV shows seem to have their background music
tuned up so high that most times you can't even hear what the
main characters in the movies have to say?
This never happened in the old-time movies, and it didn't
interfere with what the actors were saying.


Don't rush the
S n holiday season

I went into a store last week to buy a couple last-minute
.Christmas items. They were picked over and torn apart, and
pitting next to a display of Valentine's Day gifts. Why do we
I to rush through the holidays? There is no time to enjoy
ihpi because we are too busy preparing for two months


Stop re-selling
tickets

I think it's bad business that the Dolphins tickets were
bought up by people who just want to re-sell them at a ridicu-
lousprice. .
What about the real-deal fans that can't afford $400 per tick-
Pt? The Dolphin organization should try to do something
bout this.

until he called, annoyed
that I was "ignoring his e-

Other methods have had
mixed results, too.
One question that always
comes up is "how do these
sparnmers get your e-mail
address in the first place?
It's not like you go.to
some site and sign up for
spam. I've seen cases where
people get new e-mail -
accounts and within a
week, the flow of spamr
begins.
How's that?
There are dozens of ways
e-mail addresses end up as
targets for spammers, but
I'll just cover a couple.
Forwarding e-mail
messages to everyone in
your address book (or
actually corresponding-with
someone who engages in
this practice) can expose
your address to the spam-
mers, because as the
messages gets forwarded
on and on, so do all the
addresses listed in the e-
mail. Then, once they're out
in cyberspace, there are a
number of ways that the


sk

addresses can get harvested
from that e-mail.
Another method is the :b
old "random e-mail l '
address" trick. What they d6'
is use a computer programs!
to generate thousands of e-
mail addresses using .
random letters and num- t'
bers before the "at" (@)
symbol and domain name."
Then they send out test
messages to these random;
ly-generated addresses; the'
ones that don't get rejected'
by the mail system as a bad'
address, they keep. ''
They end up with a list of'
addresses they know go
somewhere. If you have '
ever gotten an e-mail with I
no subject and no'message,
it's possible that that's
where that message is
coming from, and unfortu-'
nately, by the time you get
the message, it's too late.
They already know that the
e-mail address is a good
one.
Until I find a method to
manage the flow of spam
that does not have unwant-
ed side effects, I guess I will
just continue to just delete
them as they come in. At
least I don't have to walk
out to the mailbox in the
rain to get my junk mail.

A letter that could save your life


I recently received a letter
from a reader and it
made a profound
impression on me.
She discovered a lump on
the day that she read my
column about getting a
mammogram. She wants to
protect her privacy, so I
have edited her letter in the
hope that it may help
others.
"I am in my early 50s and,
am ashamed to admit,
never went for a mammo-
gram because breast cancer
does not run in my family
and I have always been'
exceptionally healthy.
"Something about this
lump did not feel right. I
went into the kitchen and
found Hometown News on
the dining room table. I
read your column.
"I was laid off from my
job earlier this year and do
not have medical insur-
ance.
"Then I read what you
wrote about the Depart-
ment of Health Florida
breast and cervical cancer
screening program. I
discovered that my county
health department (Indian
River) offered it. I called
them and was approved for
the program in one day. I
subsequently discovered


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


that I was the last eligible
woman approved for the
program due to a shortage
of funds.
"I have since discovered
that I do have breast cancer
and have been approved for
Medicaid. I have had all of
the pre-operation tests and
throughout the ordeal, the
care has been exceptional.
"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."
As you can see, the
program this reader turned
to has limited funds. It is so
important that you get the
testing and treatment you
need, and I have turned to
another reader, Cheryl
Norman Caldwell, a
volunteer with Pink Tie
Friends, to explain that
there is help out there.
Pint Tie Friends helps
underinsured and unin-
suredcbreast cancer
patients in Indian River,


Martin and St. Lucie
counties. While they have
not yet had patients from
Indian River County, they
would like to, and when
they hear from patients
they will begin seeking
medical providers there to
work with Pink Tie to help.
At this time, most
patients are referred to Pink
Tie by the Martin Memorial
Health System Breast
Health Navigator program.
You can find out more
about Pink Tie Friends at
the Web site, www.Pink-
TieFriends.org.
The cost of breast cancer
treatment can be so
overwhelming and what
PinkTie does is negotiate
with providers based on the
medical needs of the
patient and what insurance
coverage they may already
have, even if it isn't enough
to cover treatment.
"There is no set dollar
rate or standard amount
paid," Ms. Caldwell said.
"Breast cancer is so unique
to the physiology of the
patient, which is funda-
mental to why a cure is so
elusive."
In addition, Soroptomists
of Stuart, the American
Cancer Society and the
Susan G. Komen Founda-


tion are resources for
women who cannot afford
mammograms or need help
affording treatment.
I was so moved by the
courage of the reader who
took the steps to find out
about the program and go
on Medicaid. She had
always worked, done all the
right things and had had
health coverage. This was a
crisis not of her making,
and it is happening to
people all over this country.
She took the steps
necessary to give herself the
best chance at survival.
No woman should put off
a mammogram if it is,
recommended for her age
group, regardless of
medical history. Most
breast cancer is not heredi-
tary.
If you have already found
a lump, get treatment
immediately. Call the
organizations listed. If they
can't help, perhaps they can
lead you to someone who
can. Do not put your life in
jeopardy

10 New Year's resolutions for car dealers


wo thousand eight
was the worst eco-
nomic year for auto
dealers in my memory, and
I've been a dealer for more
than 40 years.
I say that because I don't
want dealers who read this
to think I'm "kicking them
while they're down" by
preaching redemption.
I'm suggesting these
resolutions because they
can help these dealers
survive these bad times and
prosper even more when
business returns to normal.
1. Quoting prices to your
customers.
Always quote your.
customers the full, out-the-
door price. The only
additional costs passed to
your customer should be
federal, state or local taxes
and/or fees, such as Florida
sales tax. This is the general-
ly accepted practice in
retailing all other products
and services. A price is
quoted to your customer
when you communicate a
price in any fashion,
including advertising a


ON CARS
EARL STEWART


price in the newspaper,
radio or TV, painting a price
on a windshield or sign,
saying a price over the
phone or in person, or
giving a price over the
Internet. Your "dealer fee" is
profit for you. It is not a
"fee" and it should be
included in your price.
2. The buck stops with
you.
You are responsible for
the actions of your employ-
ees. Your salesmen, service
technicians and service
advisors are virtually all
paid on commission. If you
do not police your people
and hire ethical people,
your customers will be
taken advantage of. If you
are an absentee owner, as
most owners of car dealer-
ships are in South Florida,
you have to have someone


running your store who
' knows and cares about what
is happening to your
customers. Your ignorance
of the mistreatment of your
customers is no more an
excuse than being ignorant
of a law when you break it.
3. Don't advertise a car at
a price that you don't want
to sell it for.
If you advertise a car for a
specific price, you should be
willing and able to sell'that
car to as many customers as
respond to the ad. Also, pay
your salesmen a commis-
sion on the ad cars. Now
most of you don't pay a
salesman a commission if
he sells the ad car. What do
you think that salesman is
going to tell the customer
who comes in on the ad? If
you run out of that model,
you should give your
customers a rain check.
When you don't do that, it's
called "bait and switch."
4. Don't insist or encour-
age your customers to buy
and take delivery of their
car on the same day.
This is called a "spot


delivery" in the trade. There
are lots of things bad about
this. A car is the second
largest purchase a person
makes. The customer
should be allowed time to
reflect and think about this
decision. Cars are often spot
delivered when the credit
has not been approved,
especially nights and
weekends when the banks
are closed. Customers often
have to be called back to
sign another contract at
higher payments, higher
interest and/or higher down
payments. This is some-
times done deliberately,
because customers are
often too embarrassed to
tell their friends that they
really haven't bought that
shiny new car they were
showing off.
5. Give customers who
are "just looking" a price
when they ask for it.
It's insulting to today's
sophisticated buyers to be
told when they ask for the
price that they can buy the

After 12 years, Molly's House needs facelift


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY It's a
dream house, despite the
worn carpet and walls that
could use a fresh coat of
paint.
From the carefully tended
garden to the picturesque
porch and small touches for
comfort, the 12-year-old
Stuart house has been a
home to thousands.
And that's what Molly
Sharkey would have wanted
when she envisioned pro-
viding a home for families
who'd left theirs to seek
medical care.
Before she lost her battle
with leukemia as a teenager,
the Palm City girl had trav-
eled with her parents, Kevin
and Debbie, for treatment.


Those trips included
uncomfortable nights and
anxious separations, they
said.
That's when the girl
dreamed of creating a hos-
pitality house for families
like hers.
And it was this wish that
her parents, the Martin'
Memorial Hospital Founda-
tion and other Martin Coun-
ty organizations helped ful-
fill with Molly's House at 430
SE Osceola St. in Stuart.
Its doors opened in 1996,
about four years after
Molly's death.
And in that time, the years
have taken a toll on the Vic-
torian-style building, said
Louise Murtaugh, the
group's executive director.

was $235,100 last Novem-
ber, compared to $273,000
one year earlier, the group
reported.
Condo sales also fell dur-
ing that period to 22, com-
pared to 25 the year before.
And the median sale
price fell by about $87,000
to $142,500 in the 1'2
months since November
2007.
But despite the fallifig
housing numbers, real
estate agents gave bigger
donations in 2008 than
they did in the previous
year, the group's adminis-

Brief
From page Al
said the man identified
himself as a deputy and
said he was investigating a
stolen vehicle case, accord-
ing to arrest documents.
But officials said that Mr.
Shiinglette is a recovery
agent or repo man, not a
law enforcement officer.
Deputies are also investi-
gating a similar report from
a resident in Palm City. The
source told authorities that
the men wore badges
around their necks, but fled
on foot after residents
asked for more informa-
tion.
Mr. Shinglette posted a
$5,000 bond, and has been
released from the Martin
County Jail.

list" and "manufacturer's
list" you are circumventing
the law.


7. Don't advertise lease
payments that require large
down payments hidden in
the fine print.
Most people lease cars to
minimize their monthly
payment. When your
customer comes in on the ad
finds out she has to pay
$4,000 cash down to get the
lease payment you adver-
tised, it's just plain wrong.
There are some dealers who
actually advertise prices with
a qualification that the
customer pays an additional
sum first to get the adver-
tised price.
8. Do not advertise that
you can get anybody
financed, no matter how
bad their credit. This is not
true and just plain cruel,
especially during these
terrible economic times with
very tight credit.
9. Don't guarantee the
lowest price with qualifica-
tions that cannot be met.
Your qualifications are
usually that you "reserve the
right to buy the other car
from the other dealer who
beat your price" and that the -
customer must have a
signed buyer's order from
the other dealership.
You know that the other
dealer will never agree to sell
.you that car and you also
know that the chances of the
customer getting out of the
dealership with a signed
buyer's order without taking
delivery are slim and none.
Dealers reading this, I dare
you to show me evidence
that you have honored your
guarantee with jus one
customer. I'll make you a bet
that you have never honored
that guarantee.

Runner
From page Al1
The following year Hoff-
man ran three more,
including another go-
around at Disney. By 1997,
he got wind of a recently
formed group that not only
led him to wear out more
running shoes, but across
the country.
"I heard about the 50
states and D.C. Marathon
'Group;" Hoffman said.
"That intrigued me.
"I talked to some of the
fellas and became one of
the charter members of the


group."
Since then, Hoffman has
accomplished his goal of
completing a marathon in
each of the states and the
District of Colombia. He is
even on his way to doing it
again.
"I'm on my second time
around in 14 states," Hoff-
man said. "We have a motor
home and we travel all over.
"Our last trip we went to
Knoxville, St. Louis,
Lawrence, Kansas. We did
seven states in seven
weeks."
Hoffman makes the treks
with his wife, Merry, who
also shares his penchant for


running. The 59-year-old
has done 20 half-
marathons.
"I should have started
with him," Merry said. "I've
only done nine states.
, "It's great. You feel fantas-
tic when you come across
the finish line and they put
a medal around your neck.
"You want to cry."
As for Hoffman, the only
people shedding tears are
the ones trying to keep up.
He recently contacted an
organization in Oregon and
was notified that he was the
first person on their list to
finish 100 marathons in
one state.


"When-I got up around 60
or 70, I started concentrat-
ing on doing as many as I
could in Florida," Hoffman
said. "It's kind of neat to
have something that is
unique."
While Hoffman enjoys
competing in his home
state, he is especially proud
of his finishes elsewhere,
including the Boston
Marathon early on in his
career.
"I think my dad put the
bug in my ear about that
one," Hoffman said. "He
always wanted to do that
one and I thought it would*
be neat for me to do since


he didn't get to do it."
Hoffman has also enter-
tained the notion of run-,
ning in arguably the most
known of all races, the New
York City Marathon.
"It's not out of the ques-
tion," Hoffman said. "You
-have to send your resume if
you want to do that one
and appeal to the race
director."
Apparently, the New Jer-
sey native is far from run-
ning on empty.
"If I ever find a point in
time where my health does-
n't allow it, I'll stop," Hoff-
man said. "You have to go
as far as you can."


FLORIDA EYE DOCTOR HELPS


LEGALLY BLIND TO SEE AGAIN


Specialist in Low Vision Care
helps those with macular
degeneration to keep reading
and driving
By Lois Neinken
FmrlwJave e ite
ust because you have macular dege-
neration or other eye diseases like
diabetic retinopathy doesn't mean
you must give up driving.
Ever look through a pair of field glasses
or binoculars? Things look bigger and
closer, and much easier to see. Florida
Optometrist, Dr. Mare Jay Gannon, is using
miniaturized binoculars or telescopes to help
people who have lost vision from macular
degeneration or other eye conditions.
"Some of my patients consider me the
last stop for people who have vision
loss", said Dr. Gannon, a low vision
specialist with offices in Ft. Lauderdale,
Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Stuart.
"People don't know that there are
doctors who are very experienced in low
vision care". Dr. Gannon is a pannel
member of the Florida Division of Blind
Services and the International Society for
Low Vision Research and Rehabilitation.
Dr. Gannon is the founder and director of
thile Low Vision Institute and the American


Patient Norma Goldstein demonstra
telescopic glasses-for driving-

Foundation of Low Vision Rehabilitation.
Macular Degeneration is the most
common eye disease amongst the senior
population. As many as 25% of those
over 65 have some degree of degenera-
tion. The macula is one small part of the
entire retina, but it is the most sensitive
and give us sharp images. When it dege-
nerates, macular "degeneration leaves a
blind spot right in the center of vision
making it impossible to recognize faces,
read a book, or pass the driver's vision test.
The experts do not know what causes


macular degeneration. But it
is known that UV light from
the sun is a major con-
tributing factor. Other factors
are smoking, aging of
course, and improper nutri-
tion. In 15 to 20% of the
time is genetic.
There are two types,
wet and dry. The wet type
m involves leaky blood
vessels and can be lasered
shut. Unfortunately, it's a
temporary fix since other
leaks usually occur.
"Our job is to figure out
everything and anything
ting ,.' :possible to keep a person
S fuictioning",says Dr. Gannon.
Even if it's driving.
Donald Paquette, 72, a fonn ercounty
assessor from Anaheim, California was seen
last November. "I could not read fthe street
signs soon enoughwhen driving andI couldn't'
read mysaxophonemusic anymore".
The Doctor fit him with bioptic
telescope glasses. "Amazing says Do-
nald. "I can read the street signs twice as
far as I did before; I can play my sax
again. Happy day!"
Dr. Gannon also provides special
microscope reading glasses to make the
newspaper print much easier to read.


* 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
the table" said Dr. Gannon. "I designed a
special split tele-mricroscope system for her
designed to function like a bifocal". "The
top part allowed her to see the cards on the
table and the bottom was for her hand".
Telescopic glasses usually cost over
$2000, says Dr. Gannon, especially if we
build them with an automatic sunglass.
Ellen Imboden 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.
Dr. Gannon can be reached toll fcee at
1-866-942-2020.You canvisit Dr. Gannon
atwww.LowVisionInstitute.conm.
Free seminars for senior centers and
retirement facilities are also available.

Peacock Chinese Restaurant gets a big Thumbs Up!

If you haven't been to Peacock Chinese Restuarant
lately, you've gotta go to experience first hand its
impressive transformation.
After years of neglect, Peacock Chinese Restaurant
was bought by T.K.and his wife, Jenny in August of
this year. Thirty years ago, T.K. opened Golden
Dragon in Port St. Lucie. The h^opened Shanghai -,,
and GoldefrBuddA. ft 2O pl0 ars of o' aning 1
and operating ,t.K. runs the kitchen and Jenny runs .
the dining room) Chinese restaurants, T.K.and Jenny
decided to take some time off. Seven years later
they were lured back in to the restaurant business
with the challenge of bringing Peacock Chinese
Restaurant back to prominance.

Recognizing the need for a face-lift,T.K. spent two
months renovating the kitchen and dining room,
so now when you walk through Peacock Chinese's
big red door, you'll be pleasantly suprised by the fresh
and attractive decor. But, it's T.K.'s focus on the food
and the style with which he cooks that makes all the
differrence. T,K, says his cooking reflects Shanghai
and Szechuan styles with an emphasis on fresh.
vegetables and sauces he creates to perfectly match
the main ingredients in each entre&.
Peacock Chinese Restaurant's menu lists the familiar
Chinese chicken, beef, pork and seafood dishes,
including customer favorites Sesame Chicken and
General Tao's Chicken. But T,K, also looks forward to
special requests that allow him to demonstrate his
flair and creativity. He offers his fish dishes four
different ways: grilled, crispy, teryiaki and szechuan.
In Just minutes, T.K. created the dish in the picture
above featuring pork with chinese vegetables and
shrimp in a mild, but tastey red sauce.
So do yourself a favor and give Peacock Chinese
Restaurant a try. You'll find yourself coming back 0
again and again! O

would not be spending
Christmas with their par-

The foster families were

purchased toys, clothes,
pajamas, Target gift cards
and Publix gift cards for the
foster families.
Owner Diane Dultmeier
allotted a portion of all holi-
day card sales to help the
foster families make the
spirit of Christmas come
alive for the kids in their
care.
"We really wanted to do
something to give back to
our community," said Ms.
Dultmeier. "It breaks my

After speaking with the
two foster moms, Ms. Dult-

how needy these little ones
were.
For instance, just a few
weeks before Christmas,
two of the kids came to their
foster home with no shoes
and very few clothes.
"Many of our clients have
small children, so I sent out
an e-mail a couple of weeks
'before Christmas, asking for
gently-used items. The
response was terrific."
Clients and others who
heard about the needs of
these kids came forward
With a great number of
donations. .
Donated items included
many gently-worn clothes;,
shoes, teddy bears, books
balls, gift cards; trucks, tri-
cycles, a kid-sized car and,
many smaller toys. Once
they organized the donaZ
tions, Ms. Dultmeier and'
staff members Janet Hbol
land and Kristen Moore
shopped for other necessi
ties.
All year long there are kids
on the Treasure Coast who
enter foster care without
enough clothes, shoes, toys;
books and other essentials. -

ing, changing and growing
the past year. The key to suc-
cess is to get a second wind
when you begin to tire and
use it to help you finish your
projects in a timely manner.
Your desire and visions are
focused and strong. Stay on
this edge and your life will be
so magical that it will sur-
prise even you.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You have created many new
exciting changes in life. Your
spirit is strong and, your atti-
tude is positive. Keep your
life tools honed and sharp.
The main one is balance. You
are our leader in this area.
You have the patience, faith
and trust in spirit. Stay
focused on your passions
and get ready for an exciting
ride all year.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your self-confidence is grow-
ing. You worry less. You live a
day at a time. You are happi-
er. Why? Because you contin-
ue to release the past and
plan for the future. You are
creating your own reality. You
are a player in the game of
life, not a spectator. The
greatest is your open heart to
receive and give love. In the
game of life you are a win-
ner.


Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Where do you get all the
energy? You amaze your
friends. You have a never-
ending supply of determina-
tion. You know what you
want. You usually get what
you desire. The key for stami-
na is to pace yourself. Make a
list of your top priorities every
day, and take care of the
most important ones first.
This is the formula of cham-
pions.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You have a rare universal
blessing. The sun, Mars,
Jupiter and Pluto are all in
Capricorn right now. This
gives you a highly-focused
mirror into your own inner
universe. The greatest thing
you could do would be to
meditate every day and listen
closely to this rare guidance.
Then, take action to create a
great reality in the days and
months ahead.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18


Few can keep up with you at
the beginning of the year.
Your sign is coming up next.
The anticipation and joy of
achievement is the fuel that
fires your soul. The timing is
perfect to launch your new
projects. With Venus and
Neptune in Aquarius the next
two months will be very pro-
ductive. Your hard work has

love. I see good in everyone I
meet. I am thankful when
they see it in me. My heart is
filled to overflowing. Thank
you, universe."

Remembering the year in golf


I'd like to make a toast
and wish a happy New
Year to one and all.
By most standards, 2008
was a pretty rough year. We
golfers and our friends in
the golf business certainly
took our fair share of shots
to the chin.
While many will look
back at 2008 and be happy
that it's over, there are a
few memories worth
storing from these past 12.'
months. Here are mine.


FcP~I


GOLF
JAMES
STAMMER


The year began with the
stunning announcement
that the greatest female
golfer the world has ever
known, Annika Sorenstam,
was hanging up her
equipment at year's end. It
was a blow to the LPGA
Tour and to golf fans
worldwide.
Annika wants to begin a
life away from the hustle of
tour life. She wants to start
a family with her fiance
and settle down for a bit.
Life is too short to put
things off too long and I'm
happy that she is doing
what she wants in her life.
We'll miss her dearly.
Many may think her to
be very aloof and guarded.


The times that I have met
her she was never that way.
She's actually pretty funny
and loose when the
moment is right. Good
luck in your retirement,
Annika.
Another big story this
past year was that of
Michelle Wie, After a
disastrous 2007, the
teenage sensation needed
some positive news.
On Dec. 7, Wie tied for
seventh place at the 2008
LPGA Q-School tourna-
ment and is now a full-
fledged member of the
LPGA Tour. The news
wasn't just great for
Michelle, but a huge shot
in the arm for the LPGA.
Anyone who has fol-
lowed this column knows
how hard I have been on
Michelle at times. I am
very happy for her and that
she has "earned" her way
onto the LPGA Tour. I hope
See STAMMER, B 10

Fishing in the wind


T he wind has slowed
enough to allow
more anglers to get
S their bait wet. We have
been glued to the east
bank of the river and that
is where the red fish and
pesky trout are located.
I wonder if the trout
know that after the first
they will be caught trout
riot pesky trout?
Back to the red fish...
there's been a good bite
from Little Mud Creek
both north and south in
two feet of water. The Sail
Fish flats and the area
north of North Bridge on
the east side has had flat
water with no turbidity.
As long as the water stays
cool the bite time is up to
you, these fish-have been
s there all day.
Soft rubber baits,
shrimp on a jig and swim,
baits have all been pro-
ductive, if those pesky
trout do not get there first.
Waders, small boaters and
bank fisherman catching
the high tide have taken
home a red fish.
The pompano bite
continues from the Sail
Fish Flats north'to Bear
Point, especially from the
relief bridges at the east
end of the causeways.
Small jigs with a piece of
shrimp are the favored
baits, and yes, sand fleas
in the flats will catch a
bunch.
Black drum, blue fish
and Spanish mackerels are
keeping most bridge
anglers busy. Remember,
snook season is closed till
the first day of February.
As the week went on, the
surf turned down from a
five ounce to a three-
ounce sinker. The blue


FISHING
HENRY
CAIMATTO


fish bite was an all day
bite, spoons and cut bait
put fish in the beach at all
hours. The pompano were
there but you had to long
cast to find them. They
were well out beyond the
blue fish. A few whiting
and croakers made an
appearance, but the blues
ruled the surf all week. If it
ever settles down the
whiting and croakers will
be there, we just have to
let that sand settle.
Offshore it was sporty
all weekend. Anglers
picked at the dolphin,
found plenty of sails and
most of the action started
in the hundred-foot zone.
The one zone that kept
most busy was the bottom
fishing. Big muttons and
reds top the list with a
grouper or two just to
keep you on your toes. But
it was the wind that kept
everybody's time on the
water short.

Tackle shop in Jensen

From page B8

that she breaks through and
wins that elusive event and
goes on to great things.
With Annika stepping
away, we need someone to
carry the banner. If
Michelle wants to be that
one, I'll cheer loudly when
she does.
One of the best stories of
the year was that of the U.S.
Ryder Cup team. Without
Tiger Woods and reeling
f4om three straight defeats,
the U.S. squad was consid-
ered by most to be the
underdog going into the
event.
The U.S. team thumped
the Europeans, 16-1/2 to


11-1/2, to return the cup to
U.S. soil for the first time in
this millennium.
Boo Weekly showed us
that professional golfers
can have fun. He kept the
team loose and w.on 2.5
points for the team.
Anthony Kim backed up
his bedazzled belt buckle
with great play, as well. With
cup rookie Hunter Mahan
winning 3.5 points for the
team and all the young
guys playing so well our
chances of defending the
cup in the future look very
bright.
Last but not least, I give
you my favorite golf
memory from 2008.,
In early April, I was
invited to cover the Cham-
pions Tout Cap Cana


Championship in the
Dominican Republic. It Was
my moment to capture and
report on history being
made as the Dominican
hosted its first-ever profes-
sional tour event.
What I remember and
enjoyed most was not so
much the golf, but the
beauty of the country and
the people that I met.
Being a south Florida
resident, one would think
that I'd have picked up
some Spanish along the
way. Such is not the case,
and while most of the
people I met and became
friends with in the Domini-
can couldn't understand
what I was saying nor I they,
we got along so well and
became great friends over


the course of that week.
Seeing first-hand how
people in a foreign country
embrace the game that I so
love and having them
welcome me so warmly to
their home and culture was
the greatest experience I
have had in a very long
time.
Now I shall retreat to my
recliner and take a lesson
that I learned from the
warm people of the
Dominican. "Relax and
have a rum drink," they
would tell me when I
needed to get away from
things. What a perfect plan
and a great way to ring in
the New Year.
