Delegation reacts

to $10 million

tourism budget cut

By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY Martin County pro-
moters are mobilizing their Treasure Coast
counterparts for a meeting with state legisla-
tors, in the wake of a decision to slash Flori-
da's marketing budget by nearly $10 million.
Visit Florida, the state's tourism office,
stands to lose $9.9 million, about 30 percent
of its budget, after House and Senate mem-
bers moved to slash $2 billion from state-
funded programs during a special legislative
session held in Tallahassee last week to plug
gaping holes in the state's budget.
"That's a huge amount, and .it affects us
more than people realize," said Rozeta Mah-

Getting

County

Local bus takes people
where they need to go
By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY Even without a car,
getting to and from doctor's appointments
isn't a headache with Community Coach.
Community Coach, the public transporta-
tion system in Martin County, provides door-
to-door service and rides on two fixed routes
in the county.
With gas prices fluctuating and the econo-
my on shaky ground, many surrounding
counties are seeing an increase in ridership,
but that is not the case in Martin County, said
Barbara Timmerman, director of transporta-
tion of Community Coach, under the leader-
ship of the Council on Aging of Martin Coun-
ty.
"As employment has dropped, our rider-
ship in (the fixed route at) Indiantown is
much less, almost a 14 percent drop in the
last couple of months," she said.
"If you don't have a job, or are getting your
hours cut, you will be utilizing us less," said
Ms. Timmerman.
Also contributing to the lower numbers of
riders, is the slow return of winter residents.
"Some of the snowbirds haven't come back
because of.the economy, or because of finan-
cial problems or age," said Ms. Timmerman.
The demand-response transportation
services have stayed fairly steady, the director
of transportation said.
Increasing the number of places Commu-
nity Coach transports riders is in the works
and will hopefully help more people who are
transportation-deprived, Ms. Timmerman

enforcement officers took a
bite out of crime when they
nabbed three men in two
separate restaurant rob-
beries.
Facing two felony charges
is Jason John Caswell, a 26-
year-old Palm City man,
charged with robbing his for-
mer employer, Subway
restaurants.
Deputies say he entered
the Palm City Subway fran-
chise, located at 345 S.W.
Martin Highway, on Jan. 13,
armed with a gun and wear-
ing a mask.
But they say it didn't take
much for the clerk, a former
co-worker, to recognize the
man.
"(The victim) stated that
Jason was in the store earlier
that day talking to another
clerk. (She) thought the rob-
bery was a joke, and called
Jason's mother to see if he
was there," according to the
arrest affidavit.

Festival celebrates thriving

commercial fishing industry


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY It's
still shy of 3 p.m. on a
recent Thursday, but Port
Salerno fisherman Ben
Hartig has reeled in hup-
dreds of Spanish macker-
el.
About 3 miles southeast
of the St. Lucie Inlet, he's
caught about 450 pounds
of fish in a matter of
hours.
"It's been slow today,"
he said.
On average, after a day's
work, two fishermen haul
in a 1,500-pound catch, he
said.
At that's the kind of
brisk business Port Saler-


no residents celebrate at
the city's Seafood Festival.
The day-long celebra-
tion runs from 10 a.m. to 6
p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 24.
Admission is free.
"It's all about the local
seafood that comes to our
docks," said festival chair-
man Butch Olsen, a "crab-
ber" who spends his days
fishing on the Indian and
St. Lucie rivers. "Boats sta-
tioned at the dock go out
everyday, catch fresh
seafood and bring it to the
docks for local distribu-
tion."
The city's 35 commer-
cial fishing boats' annual
haul includes about 1 mil-
lion. pounds of Spanish
mackerel; 200,000 pounds


of kingfish,
50,000 pounds
of amber jacks
and 30,000
pounds of the
deep-water
catch, tile fish.
"We push a
lot of fish
across this
dock," Mr.
Hartig said.

boubi, executive director of
the Martin County Conven-
tion and Visitors Bureau.
Local groups depend on
Visit 'Florida to negotiate
volurie discounts on* ads
and travel .
The deals typically save
Martin County hotels, and
promoters at least 60 per-
cent on their marketing
costs, and give them expo-
sure they couldn't otherwise
afford, industry sources
said.
Without their partner-
ships with Visit Florida,
sources say many local
efforts would disappear.
Likely to be cut, for
instance, will be the travel
festivals at visitor centers


along Interstate 95.
These festivals allow local
representatives to meet
travelers as they enter the
state and distribute
brochures and coupons to
generate business.
Visit Florida staff stress
that it is too soon tuspecify
which programs will be
eliminated, but said that the
festivals at the welcome
centers are likely to be cut
because the state bore the
majority of the costs.
House leaders, such as
Rep. David Murzin, R-Pen-
sacola, said they backed the
nearly $10 million in cuts to
the Florida tourism budget
because they felt the private
sector could bear some of
the marketing costs.
But local promoters say
that if they had to fund their
own marketing, they'd have

least $3 is returned to the state in tourism-relat-
ed taxes."

to cut more than 80 percent
of their budgets.
"It affects us as small des-
tinations, because we
depend on the big guys'
support more than Orlando
and Miami (do)," Ms. Mah-
boubisaid.
In January and February
alone, for instance, local
representatives participated
in trade shows in Boston,
New York and Atlanta, by
paying participation fees to
set up booths in the Visit
Florida pavilion at these
shows.
Purchasing these same.-:
spots without a group dis-.
count would have at least:
double the cost, Ms. Mah-
boubi said.
"With them, we're not just
Martin County. We're Martin
County, a partner of Visit
Florida. They are the ones
with spending power. They
have a lot more media and
advertising power and con-
tracts with travel agents


than we ever could," she
said. "They drive people to
us."
The Martin County group
joined a grassroots effort to
approach state legislators to
lessen the impact and ask
for smaller cuts.
On board is Richard Gold-
man, chairman of Visit
Florida, who helped rally
support at a Boynton Beach
forum by the Senate Select
Committee -on Florida's
economy.
He told legislators that last
.year, Visit' Florida directly
attracted 12.5 million visi-
tors, for an economic con-
tribution of $9.75 billion in
visitor spending in the
state.
"Tourism marketing is our
state's economic solution, a
proven investment you can
count on," he said. "For each
$1invested in tourism mar-
keting, at least $3 is returned
to the state in tourism-relat-
ed taxes."

Student organizes volunteers


who complete county park


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY Sam Ballard,
17, a Jensen Beach High School senior,
is a Boy Scout with Troop No. 810 and
decided he wanted to earn his Eagle
Scout badge.
Becoming an Eagle .Scout requires
taking on" a project that benefits the
community and takes at least 24 hours
to complete.
With the county's cooperation, Sam,
with help from other Boy Scouts, took
on the job of completing a pathway
through conservation land in Kiplinger
Park on Kanner Highway in Stuart. The
park is 150 acres, all designated as con-
servation land. One side opens to the
river.
The county had already begun the
process of making a pathway through
the park, but it wasn't finished. There
was also one section that was very wet
and needed a footbridge built.
County employee Michael Yuston
worked directly with Sam to determine
the supplies needed, including mulch
and building materials. Sam organized


all-volunteer work crews for weekends
in December to finish the pathways and
build the footbridge.
Sam approached John Pierson, owner
of Toyota of Stuart and a community
philanthropist, and asked for a dona-
tion to supply food for his work crews.
Mr. Pierson provided lunch both
weekends for the entire crew. When
mulch supplies ran out, he arranged to
purchase more mulch to complete the
project. He also lent the crew a gas pow-
ered all- terrain vehicle to haul supplies
and volunteers.
The volunteers had to mulch about 1
to 1-1/2 miles of trail in the hot sun, but
there was no complaining. Troop No.
810 is based out of All Saints Church of
Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints and most
of the volunteers are members of that
church.
I was really happy to work on this
project that the community will be able
to enjoy," said Sam, who plans on
attending college.
He will receive his Eagle Scout badge
in a Court of Honor ceremony in the
near future.

,and accounting.


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
and 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 cus
am suggesting a change that -
will reward both you and your expectpati
customers. r
Virtually every car dealer of educai
in Florida adds a charge to
the price of cars he sells, a Sophistic4
"dealer fee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 much high
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.. 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.


Car Dealers.
er Fee".-
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
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but because, I was
tomers' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
Ons, level or used car. You can do the
same.
tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
nation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er 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.

John Hennessee. "We have

The festival spans Park

with local restaurants and
vendors serving up their
seafood specialties.
It features live entertain-
ment, with bands at
Pirates Cove Resort on
north end of the festival


and Finz restaurant on
south end.
The event is family-
friendly, with a large chil-
dren's play area created by
the community church,
the Grace Place.
It also features arts and
craft displays from local
creators and vendors.
Organizers have also
moved to relieve traffic
congestion.
Free parking and shuttle
service to the festival is
available from Indian River
State College on Salerno


Road. Water taxis are avail-
able for $1 froin Sandsprit
Park, the Port Salerno Civic
Center and the Hinkley
boatyard in Rocky Point.
But the event is more
than just a seafood lover's
treat, organizers say. It also
raises tens of thousands of
dollars for civic projects,
such as Big Brothers and
Big Sisters of Martin Coun-
ty, the Humane Society, the
Port Salerno Commercial
Dock Authority, school
sponsorships and efforts to
clean the Indian and St.

Last year, the festival
raised about $55,000 for
more than a dozen causes,
particularly the Christmas

100 bicycles and more than
160 tbys to local children.

Elderly aren't always computer literate

I'm an elderly gentleman living in the county some of
the year. Some of us older folks don't have computers
and it's hard when. the only information we have leads
us to a Web site.
What about a phone number or address?

Inauguration celebrations

The inauguration is a historic event, and I don't see
any local places having any types of celebrations. Can't
we get some big screen TVs, even if it's at the new civic
center? We should be able to celebrate. This is a day for
everybody.

Clinton to the front lines

This is for Bill Clinton: he said he would pick up a rifle
and fight for Israel. But you're still here. There has to be
a place on the front line for you.

If you're sick, stay at home

To all the people who are sick with a persistent cough:
why do you go to the movies?
I went to a full movie theatre and was placed in front
of a man who coughed through the entire movie. He
disrupted the whole thing and now, I have to see it
again.
/ Why not bring cough syrup or cough drops, or why.
not just stay at home? He ruined the whole thing.-

Understanding computer lingo


One of the most
annoying aspects of
computers is their
uncanny ability to assume
you know what they're
talking about.
Don't computer pro-
grammers realize that most
end-users are just regular
folks:without any formal
computer training? So why.
do they write programs to
pop up technical questions?
Most people have no clue
what they are talking about.
Sure, sure, I know, most
dialogue boxes are self-
explanatory. Most people
don't need help under-
standing, "Are you sure you
want to close this pro-
gram?"
What I'm talking about
are those cryptic messages
that assume an average
end-user has a degree in
computer science. It's
questions like those that
can cause a person to waste
a lot of time trying to figure
out what to do because they
are afraid if they answer
wrong, they could screw
something up. I've been
there myself. All I can say is,
thank God for Google!
A quick Google search will
often reveal information
from other people with the
same questions and how


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


they solved their issues.
Recently, I received an e-
mail from a reader who had
some questions, and I
thought I would answer
them here. Her questions
stem from the fact that
whoever "wrote" Windows
assumes that everyone
knows what they are talking
about when, in reality, it's
questions like these that can
bring the average user to a
halt. Anyway, Jan in Mel-
bourne Beach writes:
"Sean, I have an'older'
2004 HP Laptop dvll010us.
It locked up recently and I
had a tech friend come over
and run my disk cleanup. It
helped a great deal. It works
well for the 60 GB hard drive
and 512 MB memory it has.'
I now use disk cleanup
regularly. However, I have
some questions. Maybe you
can write an article on the
disk cleanup function?
"One, I can still free up
more space on (the com-
puter) if I 'compress old
files' (more than) 2,059,538


kb. But I don't want to lose
any old documents still on
the hard drive in 'My
Documents.' What does
'compress old files' mean?
Has it already'compressed
them? What files will it
delete? (It's) hard to under-
stand.the explanation.
"And two, in the other
options, I can also 'delete
Windows components and
programs'not used and,
delete to the most recent
restore point. Sounds scary..
Maybe others would benefit
from such an article if they
have older, slower PCs, as I
do"
Jan, thanks for writing. I
understand your hesitation
when faced with messages
like these and you are right,
they are kind of scary. I
have a couple of rules I use
that can keep a user out of
trouble without the stress
of wondering if it's the right
decision. Basically, I don't
compress files (unless I am
really strapped for space)
and I usually recommend
that people avoid the
temptation to delete. Both
actions can lead to lost data
and that's something we all
want to avoid, right?
The next thing I have
trouble with is letting
Windows "decide" what an


old file is or what is not in
use. The idea of letting
Windows decide what's old
or what I don't use is what
really scares me. I don't
have any faith in my
operating system making
that kind of decision,
As for the last item, I
would also caution against
using "delete old restore
points." I've seen more
than one machine "resur-
rected" by rolling back to a
restore point that wasn't
the most recent and (in
those cases) had they
deleted all but the most
recent, we would have
been forced to reload
Windows from scratch.
So, Jan, that's my advice
to you. I would avoid
compressing files and
would also avoid letting
Windows decide what files
are safe to delete. The hard
drive space that these
things use is a small price
to pay for the peace of
mind knowing that Win-
dows didn't just "nuke"
something that you are
going to need later.

MARTIN COUNTY -
This year's Martin Youth
LEADERship Class 12
learned first-hand what it's
like to be an immigrant,
arriving in the United
States and not under-
standing the English lan-
guage.
For Cultural Diversity
Day, the class toured Hope
Rural School and listened
to personal life stories of
several immigrants. The
students were then chal-
lenged to create a budget
based on the earnings of a
migrant worker with a
family of four. This exer-
cise introduced the stu-
dents to the notion of liv-
ing and working off a
budget.
In addition, the students
learned about banking
from Tracy Henkes, mar-
keting officer, at First Bank
of Indiantown. Students
discovered the differences
in banks, savings & loans,
and credit unions, how to
open a checking and sav-
ings account, how to write
a check, and the history
behind FDIC insurance.
Audrey Allen, a loan offi-
cer with' National City,
talked about the impor-
:ance of good credit. Stu-


Mom
From page A5
during the final week of
the challenge.
Every mom who
completes the Healthy
Mom Challenge is a
winner, working their


dents learned that credit
and credit history, good or
bad, plays an important
role in a person's life from
employment to insurance,
to obtaining a mortgage, as
well as the rate of interest
one may pay on a credit
card.
The students watched a
video on Martin County's
economically diverse busi-
nesses, and the many
unique firms that are
established and thriving in
Indiantown. Kevin Pow-
ers, a LEADERship alumni
and an Indiantown busi-
nessman, engaged the stu-
dents in a question-and-
answer session about
Martin County economics.
To end the day, three for-
mer high school graduates
whose parents immigrated
to the United States, talked
to the students about their
Guatemalan history;
including Mayan culture,
music and national
dances. Several students
even took part in learning
the cultural dances.

School to help build


room at center


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
STUART -The children,
parents and staff at Bridges
Montessori School in Stuart
have adopted a year-long
project: to help the Chil-
dren's Home Society of
Florida, Treasure Coast Divi-
sion, build a computer
room in their planned Youth
Transition Center.
the YTC will be a residen-
tial program for former fos-
ter youth, ages 18-23, from
the four-county area who
age-out of the system. Many
lack the skills and founda-
tion necessary to make a
positive transition into
adulthood.
Bridges Montessori is a
Bright Horizons Montessori
School, dedicated to edu-
cating children as whole
-human beings. Bright Hori-
zons established a founda-
tion to create "Bright
Spaces" to bring joy to chil-
dren living in homeless
shelters throughout the
country and will match up
to $5,000 in funds raised by
one of their schools.
Bridges Montessori
deemed their space to be a
computer room within the
YTC, to give youth a place to
do homework, research
employment opportunities,
access tutorial software and
meet with mentors.
"The children are very
excited to help former foster
youth," said Tracey Etelson,
founder and head of school
at Bridges Montessori. "It is
a delight to teach them at
such a young age how to
have a bigger sense of com-
munity and contribute their
part to the whole."


All aspects of this year-
long effort will be incorpo-
rated into the Bridges
Montessori curriculum.
Traditional fundraising
events, from denim day,
when each child brings in $1
to be able to wear jeans to
school, holiday gift wraps,
bake sales and read-a-
thofis, Bridges Montessori
will be have a single focus
this year on generating
donations for the room.
Results and momentum
will be incorporated into the
educational curriculum.
Additionally, a hands-on
display will be created as a
visual to help the children
measure and understand
their progress. Kids will also
take a field trip to the YTC
site during its construction.
Ms. Etelson's goal is to
invite other schools to par-
ticipate, forming a collabo-
rative "of principals and
schools that would encour-
age a combined service
learning effort in Martin
County.
Montessori believes in
modeling behavior to chil-
dren by teaching collabora-
tion in classrooms as well as
with mentors, teachers and
administrators.
Bridges Montessori was
founded in 1992 by Tracey
Etelson. Beginning with six
students, it now serves 140
children infant through
sixth grade, and has a staff
of 35.
CHS is Florida's largest
statewide private nonprofit
serving children 'and fami-
lies.

Among them was Hoytt
Woods, Veterans Council
chairman, who applauded
the venture.
"It's good for members of
the public who have not
been in the military to see
what (soldiers) had to work
with and what they are sub-
jected to. This is just a very
small part of what our mili-
tary people have to work


with when they are in com-
bat," said the Vietnam veter-
an.
For many who attended
the official opening, the
event brought back memo-
ries of a war that shaped
their lives.
"We saw a lot of vets who
had brought their grandchil-
dren and were telling them
stories about what they had
experienced," Mr. Roberts
said.
And that's one of the big
reasons that the museum
allows hands-on participa-


tion.
"At shows, I noticed that
the vets always wanted to
hold the rifles that they had-
n't held since the war. Once,
I let someone's grandson
climb into an armored car,
and the reaction from the
kid was so amazing that we
knew we wanted to keep
doing that. We want people
to walk away and say, 'It's
not the biggest thing that'
I've ever been to, but I got to
do things there that I've
never dorte before,'" Mr.
Roberts said.


Visitors can get close-ups
of deactivated demolition
items, including explosive
blocks, fuses and tools.
A collection of eight vehi-
cles features two Jeeps, an
airborne bulldozer that was
the smallest of its kind dur-
ing the war, a Harley David-
son' motorcycle and an
"amphibious" truck, called
the Duck, because the mili-
tary used it both on land and
sea.
A communication area
resembles one from the war,
featuring a small writing


desk, radios, crystals, tele-
type machines, typewriter
and telegraph machines,
rifle, chair and cup.
"Someone could actually
sit here and get to work," Mr.
Roberts said.
The venture has gained
support from local collec-
tors who've donated several
items, including a flight suit,
complete with goggles,
breathing masks and flota-
tion devices.
The museum is located at

LEGALLY BLIND TO SEE AGAIN


Specialistin Low Wsion Care
helps those with macular
degeneration to keep reading
andd ving
By Lois Neinken

Sust because you have macular dege-
ncration 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. Marc 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 methe
last stop for people who have vision
loss", said Di.; Gannon, a low vision
specialist with offices in Ft. Lauderdale,
Boca Raton, West:PalmnBeach and Stuart.
"People don't know that there are
doctors who,are very experienced in low
vision care". Dr. Gannon; is a pariel,
member of the Florida Division of Blind
Services: and the International Society for
Low Vision ,Resarch and Rehabilitation.
DF. Gannon is the founder and director of
the Loa Vision Institute and the American


Patient Norma olddstein demon'strating
telescopic glasses for drM"rig


Foundation.ofLow 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'svision test.
The experts do not know what causes


macular degeneration But it
is known that UV light fi-om
the sun is a major con-
tributing factor. Other factors
arc smoking, aging of
course, and improper nutri-
tion. In 15 to 20% of the
line is genetic.
There are two types,
wet and dry. The wet type
involves lIaky blood
vessels and can be lascred
shut Unfortunately, it's a
temporary fix since other
leaks usually occur.
"Our job is to figure out
eve ing and anything
possibl-e t keep a person
functioning", says Dr. Garion.
Evenifit's driving.
Donald Paquette, 72, a fomier county
ssor from Anaheim, Califonia was seen
November. "I could not read the street
s soon enough ihen driving and I couldn't
nmy saxophone Mnusc anymore".
The Doctor ,fit him with bioptic
scopc glasses. "Amazing !"says. Do-
. "I can read the street signs twice as
as I did before. ILcan play my sax
i. Happy day!"
Dr. Gannon also provides special
roscope reading glasses to make the
spaper 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-mnicroscope system for her
designed to fimunction 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
btild them with an automatic'suriglass.
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 aslittle
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 fiee at
1-866-942-2020. You can visitDr. Gannon
at www.LowVisionlnstitute.com,.
Free seminars for senior centers and
retirement facilities are also available.

house. It's housed in a 2,500-
square-foot building that
was once part of Camp Mur-
phy, a radar-testing facility
in Palm B each County dur-
ing the war. It was later
brought to Stuart and has
since been used by several
organizations, including, as
temporary office space for
the Stuart Police Depart-
ment. City officials most
recently leased it for two
years to the -non-profit
museum.
"It started out as a military
building and ended up
being used as a military-
inspired building," Mr.
Roberts said. "It's back to its
former glory."
Intact is the original
kitchen, set up with a war-
era display of a full set of
dishes from the 1940s and
cookbooks, including
instructions on how to grow
a "victory garden" as part of
war efforts to prevent food
shortages.
"It's not just weapons,"
Mr. Roberts said.
The museum opens the
first Saturday of every
month from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

From page Al
not be reached by press
time for comment.
Deputies charged a sec-
ond man in the case, say-
ing that he served as the
"get-away driver."
Mathew Carlsen, 25, 800
N.W. Fork Road, Stuart,
was charged with grand
theft and assisting in the
course of an armed rob-
bery.
He told investigators
that he was unaware Mr.
Caswell planned to rob the
restaurant when he agreed
to take him to the store.
But the two men's stories
contradicted each other,
as Mr. Caswell said the pair
planned the robbery,


according to the arrest
documents.
Investigators say the
men took $562 at gunpoint
from the store.
In an unrelated case, a
21-year-old man thrown
out of a pub for disorderly
conduct went on to rob a
store of $400 in liquor
minutes later.
Dalton Baker, of 3670
N.E. Indian River Drive,
Jensen Beach, is charged
with burglary and grand
theft of Mulligan's Caf6.
Deputies say the store's
surveillance camera
caught him taking several
cases of alcohol from the
backdoor of the closed
restaurant in the early
morning hours of Jan.8.
Investigators say the
man admitted to being


"pretty drunk that night"
and offered to repay the
restaurant for the drinks.
The restaurant burgla-
ries are among a series of
robberies to hit the county
in recent weeks..
Law enforcement offi-
cials reported six burgla-
ries on Jan. 14 alone, lead-
ing authorities to urge
residents to lock their
homes and take precau-
tions. '
Thieves broke into prop-
erties throughout the
county, hitting homes in
Palm City, Stuart, Tequesta
and Hobe Sound.
Officials were investigat-
ing these robberies at
press time. The men
charged in the restaurant
burglaries remained in
custody.

by the U. S. Mint to test new con-
cepts and motifs, to provide

other reasons. The book United

My sister's room faced the
parking lot odi the south
side. Neither was bother-
some, it was lovely.
The rooms were decorat-
ed in the same colors as the
lobby with plenty of space
at 462 square feet..
A large bathroom, big
enough for wheelchair if
necessary, had a very sleek
table-style vanity just
outside the door. There was
also a kitchen-type area in
the room with yet another
sink, refrigerator,
microwave, coffeemaker
and plenty of cabiriet space.
The bedding was done
mostly white with a touch of
the aqua and brown. There
were plenty of pillows and
when I later went to bed, I
found that it was probably
the most comfortable bed I
have ever slept in.
Because we arrived late
we decided to go into their
Elements Bistro & Lava Tiki
Bar & Grille to catch up. The
following day we were back
at Elements for a wonderful
breakfast. You can either
purchase the extensive
breakfast buffet for $14.95
or order from the menu; the
best eggs Benedict I ever
had.

weekend.
Gulfstream is where many
of the horse trainers from
the northern tracks come
for the winter meet. It is
only open from January
through April and then it
closes its racing, although
you can still bet other tracks
with simulcasts. The other
big draw is the casino and
card rooms at the track.
We were there mostly to
watch the horse racing but
admittedly, I made my
deposit in the slots as well.
We spent most of our time
in the Asian restaurant
Christina Lee's, located on
the third floor. The floor-to-
ceilingwindows offered an
incredible view of the track,
and, more importantly, the
finish line. On the other side
of the restaurant you-are
able to view the horses
when they come into the
paddock to be saddled and
head out through a tunnel
to the track to the bugle
announcing that they are on
the track. There is still
much pomp and circum-
stance at the racetrack; it is
quite a sight.
There were many televi-

Critical rants?
There are a lot of rants
that I have that criticize
local government, that
regard the idiotic medians
ort U.S 1., animal control,


sions offering views of
various tracks such as
Aqueduct in New York,
Santa Anita in Los Angeles
and Tampa, to name a few.
They also had the football
game going, something for
everyone.
Our day was fun filled
trying to pick the winner.
My husband, brother-in-
law and a very good friend
(a former jockey) discussed
the various horses, trainers
and owners that they were
familiar with, while the
ladies were more interested
in ihe color of the horse,
the horse's name or the
colors the rider was wear-
ing to wager a bet. It was
fairly even as towhich
method was better
(although the boys dis-
agree). Luck still has a lot
to do with it.
After the last race, we
went to dinner at the very
lovely Frankie's 123. It was a
wonderful Italian restau-
rant with many options. I
had the best chicken
Francese ever. Others had
various dishes that were
equally delicious. We took
the five-minute drive back
to the hotel for another
luxurious night of sleep.
Although the Hollywood
area has abit of traffic to


contend with it is very easy
to get around. There is so
much to see and do in the
area it was a great weekend
getaway.

Singer defies
easy labels

Pianist and songwriter
Jim Brickman's music has
been labeled everything
from adult contemporary to
New Age, but the singer
doesn't care for labels.
He tells the story about a
woman who called into a
radio station to win Jim
Brickman concert tickets.
She had to name five songs,
and she couldn't, because
she said it wasn't the specif-
ic songs, but the way they
made her feel. Mr. Brick-
man loves that story.
"It's not about hit songs.
Although I've had hit songs,
it's about the overall con-
nection, about comfort,
relaxation, romance," he
said. "It's intended to evoke
a mood and a feeling. The
songs mean whatever
they'd like it to mean."
The singer, whose first hit
was "IfYou Believe," in 1996,
has had 23 adult contempo-
rary hits, more than any
other male artist.
He has worked in part-
nership with artists as
diverse as Martina McBride,
Dave Koz, Carly Simon and
Herb Alpert. He has high
standards for a music part-
ner.
"(It should be) somebody
who is innately gifted musi-
cally, and with an emotional
connection that overrides
technical ability," he said. "I
take the technical ability as
a given, but they need the
ability to bring the song to
life, to bring the same emo-
tional connection that I
bring to he writing."
Mr. Brickman said that
audiences may be surprised
at what his shows are like.

'Cancan' to dance across Lyric stage


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
STUART- Cole Porter's
musical "Cancan" tells the
story of Pistache LaMome,
who scandalizes Parisian
society in 1893 when she
insists on allowing her
dance hall girls to perform
the cancan, which has been
banned as obscene.
The show ,becomes a
family affair when Shiloh
Theatrical Productions
presents the show from Jan.
28-Feb. 1 at the Lyric The-
atre. Several local families
have contributed cast
members spanning genera-
tions.
Shiloh's productions
often feature family mem-
bers, as they offer musicals
and are kid-friendly.
Director Neil McKenzie
and his wife, Faye, lead the
trend. Their daughter, Beth
McKenzie Shestak, is the
choreographer and plays
Claudine, and their grand-
son, Nash Will iam Shestak,
plays both a French boy
and a monkey.
Neil and Faye McKenzie
talked about all the families
in the cast and the fun of
directing a musical.
Sharon Owens, a Treasure
Coast favorite, plays Pis-
tache LaMome, the night-
club owner who locks horns
with the judge, Aristide
Forestier, played by another
local favorite, Dick Grady.
"Sharon is a veteran
actress and is well-known
for her powerful and beau-
tiful singing voice," Mr.
McKenzie said. "We are

Bates as Butterfly in the production of 'Can-Can,' at the Lyric Theatre.


lucky to have Dick Grady as
the male lead. Most of the
Treasure Coast will remem-
ber his outstanding per-
formance in last season's
'South Pacific.'"
In addition to the McKen-
zies, the other families with
multiple cast members
include the Gorman-Pelle-
grino family; the Bates fam-
ily; the Regan family; a
mother-daughter combo of
Sandi and Laura Hellstrom;
twins Hayley and Sara


Strubbe; and Shiloh stal-
wart Jeanette Mazzella and
her grandson, Jake Schin-
carol.
The children are an addi-
tion made by Faye McKen-
zie, who has added some
inserts to let the children
become involved.
"Shiloh is dedicated to
using young people and
helping to enrich their the-
atrical experience," she
said. "We have junior can-
can dancers and school


children."
For Neil McKenzie, the
show is about fun.
"The whole play so light,
happy, a love affair," he said.
"It's pure fun. It's light and
airy and completely joyous.
"What I'm doing as a
director is to show that each
character is a little jewel.
The whole idea of the play
is to make every single
character bigger than life.

Diner mixes '50s charm with great food


Staff Photo by Samantha Joseph
The wait staff is friendly and the portions are hearty at
1950s-style Stuart diner, Sammy J's.


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY If
breakfast is the most
important meal of the day,
then Sammy J's diner is
doing God's work.
Well into the afternoon,
the 1950s-style restaurant
serves up waffles, French
toast and pancakes, plain
or stuffed with fruit and
cream cheese.
Thick slices of honey-
baked ham sizzle on the
grill well past noon, along-
side bacon and sausage
for hot platters that per-
fectly compliment the
constantly flowing coffee.
Each omelet starts with
four eggs, but could end
up with a medley of veg-
gies, meats, or even Greek
style, served with feta
cheese and spinach.
It's a breakfast lover's
paradise.
"A lot of people come in


and want breakfast for
lunch," said Bill Salera,
who's championed the
morning meal for nearly
six years at the Stuart
eatery. "We're constantly
busy."
His restaurant opens
early- 5:30 a.m. on week-
days and 6 a.m. on week-
ends and serves hun-
dreds of breakfasts before
closing time by mid-after-
noon.
The crowds are thickest
on Sundays, when a
leisurely and hearty break-
fast draws about 400 din-
ers, many of whom spend
a lazy morning enjoying
the outdoor seating.
Hearty specials include
steak and eggs, a six-
ounce flat iron steak
served with two eggs and
toast; eggs Florentine and
country-fried steak and
eggs with gravy.

Aries March 21-April 19
Your strong belief in doing
things right is a major factor
in your life's success. When
you get that "right" feeling
nothing can slow you down
or stop you as you march on
to victory. You have an awe-
some reservoir of love, pas-
sion and desire. So many
wonderful dreams live in
your heart. Your life is richly
rewarded.

Taurus April 20-May 20
Act decisively on your imme-
diate goal and plans. Your
inherent sense of responsi-
bility will guide you as need-
ed. Just keep a lighter touch
on life. Refuse to let earthly.
things upset you. Look at
adversity as a means to grow
and reach greater under-
standing with your family
and associates. Count your
blessings and be grateful.

Gemini May 21-June 21
Keep on striving for a better
life for yourself and those
you love. Refuse to let the
occasional storms of life set
you back. Be patient and
trust your instincts when
decisions have to be made.
Whenever you get that little
buzz in the head that some-
thing isn't right pay attention
to it. Foresight is better than
hindsight.

cancer June22-July 22 .
Your strong sense of respon-
sibility keeps moving you in
the right direction. You have
such a strong connection
with spirit that this should be
easy. Just listen to and trust
your first impressions. Live in
the moment. This is the cut-
ting edge of life and when
you are the sharpest. It's all
going to work out as
planned.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22
I continue to marvel at your
flexibility. It has a lot to do
with your breeding, educa-
tion, experience and desire
to excel. It comes from the
heart. You always seem to
come out on top, even if at
the last minute. Tenacity is a
major factor. The bottom line
is you never give up. Keep
releasing old routines and
the sky in the future is unlim-
ited.

Food
From page B1
For those with slightly
less hearty appetites, there's
the Big Boy, two pancakes or
French toast and two eggs,
ham, sausage or bacon.
At the quiet, unassuming
eatery, the portions are hefty
and the price tags puny.
Two eggs, home fries,
hash browns, grits or beans
and toast ring up for $2.59.
About $1 more buys an egg
sandwich with bacon, ham
or sausage on melted
cheese, served with fries.
For those still sticking to
their New Year's resolutions
to lose weight, the lite side
menu offers. a four-egg-
white omelet with peppers,
onions, tomatoes, mush-
rooms and fat-free cheese,
served with whole wheat


toast.
One-egg breakfast sand-
wiches, served on English
muffins, offer variety and
low cholesterol.
Heart-healthy choices
include egg whites or Egg
Beater substitutes for
omelets and sandwiches.
Each meal at Sammy J's
diner is a nod to the bygone
decades of hearty, hot food,
freshly prepared, made to
order and priced modestly.
And when they're not
serving up breakfast, Mr.
Salera and his friendly wait
staff dish up hot lunches,
including meat loaf, a cus-
tomer favorite.
Garden salads topped
with chicken breast, sand-
wiches from $3.50 and sal-
ads from $1.95 are among
the affordable options.
The soups, served by the
cup or bowl, are hot and


freshly made, and the selec-
tion of sandwiches includes
burgers, hot dogs, patty
melts and Philly cheeses-
teaks.
The Buffalo Bill sandwich,
with fried chicken breast
and hot, mild or "sweet-
heart" sauce, is among an
array of chicken offerings,
served killed or smothered
in onions, peppers and
cheese.
"I always wanted to own a
restaurant," Mr. Salera said.
And if the hundreds of
breakfasts he serves up each
week are an indication,
many Martin County restau-
rants are glad he does.
Sammy J's diner is located
at 6027 S.E. Federal Highway
1. It opens from 5:30 a.m. to 2
p.m. on Mondays to Fridays
and 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on week-
ends. For more information,
call (772) 286-5775.

From page B1 know that each character could steal the show."
Of course, in a play about a dance, the show has five, includ-
ing a ballet, and ends with a dramatic can-can. It may no longer be scandalous, but it's sure to
be fun.

Shiloh Theatrical Productions presents "Can-Can" at the Lyric Theatre, 59 S.W. Flagler Ave.,

piano recital, by any means.
It's a variety show of sorts,
with lots of interaction and
light-hearted moments.
There's lots of laughter, lots
of comfort. I never see
myself as presenting art. I'm
sharing it.
"There's such an intimate
environment at the Lyric. It's
a beautiful setting, without a
bad seat. I'll be there solo,
but with a featured female
vocalist."

It's Jim Brickman's gift to

ched up and happy, a lot of
progress is made. Make a lit-
tle more quality time for
yourself every day. Visualize,
daydream and create. Keep a
strong focus on the projects
that make you happy. These
have the blessing of spirit
upon them.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct.22
Sometimes you have to ven-
ture into the unknown in
order to complete your trans-
formation into new and bet-
ter ways to live. Become a
pioneer like the old voyagers
on land and sea. Peel away
outgrown experiences and
move on to the next level.
The changes you make on
the inside will soon material-
ize on the outer. Be brave.

DINING & EMINME


Warm your insides with delicious soups


Hello smart shoppers.
As I'm writing this
column, it's delight-
fully nippy outside, so,
"soup's on!"
Nothing like comfort
food on a cool day, so
thaw that ham bone for
an amazing pea soup.
Other soups are included
and then there's mystery
squash soup.
When we lived in Palm
Beach County I ran
sewing schools under the
name "Learn to Sew With
Arlene."
It was in the '80s when
health restaurants were all
the rage. While visiting a
local restaurant the
waitress suggested the
squash soup. When I
made a face she said, "Oh,
you must try it, it's won-

derful." A subtle, unde-
tectable flavor had me
asking for more. Of course
all she knew was that it
contained summer
squash.
A new student hap-
pened to mention she had
worked at the restaurant
and yes, she had the
ingredients.
How do you thicken a
low-fat, low-cholesterol,
low-carb soup? Would you
believe cashews?
Enjoy. See you next
week.


ITALIAN SPLIT-PEA
SOUP

Never use a pressure
cooker for split pea soup.

1 14-ounce or 1 pound
(16-ounce) package dried
green split peas
1 large carrot, cut up
1 large potato, peeled and
cut in chunks
1 large onion, cut up
1 large celery stalk with
leaves, cut up
Several sprigs Italian
parsley, chopped, or 2
tablespoons dried
parsley
1-1/2 teaspoons dried
oregano
1/2-teaspoon dried
thyme
leaves
1/2-cup tomato sauce
Few shakes of black
pepper
1 ham bone trimmed of
all visible fat*
5 or more cups water
*Ham hocks can be used
for this, but the fat
content is huge.

Rinse peas in cold water,
picking out any that float.
Place all ingredients in a
large pot. Cook, covered,
over low heat. Stir occa-
sionally and add more
water if necessary. Cook for
about 2 hours until peas
literally melt. Taste. Salt if
needed.
Remove the bone; cut up
any meat, reserve. Mash
soup with a potato masher
or with a large spoon. You
can sieve it if you like, but
we prefer some texture.


Return meat to pot. Serve
as a meal with regular or
low-fat biscuits.

EASY MINESTRONE

1 large onion, large dice
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 each: medium carrots,
peeled potatoes and
celery stalks, cut up
1/2 small cabbage, cut up
1 16-ounce can whole
tomatoes with liquid,
crushed
Add any other vegetables
you choose
1/4-cup ketchup
1/2-teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon parsley flakes
One 14 to 15-1/2 ounce
can of chicken broth
1 can water
2 16-ounce cans great
northern beans (canne-
lini), undrained
3 tablespoons (measured
when raw), of any small
pasta of your choice, pre-
cooked

There's no problem if
canned veggies are less
than 1 pound. That slight
difference will not affect
the outcome of the soup.
Saute onion in oil, adding
a little water if necessary.
Add all other ingredients
except beans and pasta.
Cook until vegetables are
almost tender.
Puree one can of beans in
blender. Set aside.
Add remaining can of
beans to soup and continue
cooking until vegetables are

New roller derby team set to roll on Treasure Coast


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
During her day job as a
mechanic, Sara Mark toils
on all different types of
vehicles, attempting to get
them in good working order.
When she's on the rink as a
member of the Riot City
Rollers roller derby team,
Mark works on the opposi-
tion just as meticulously,
only opting for a different
result.
"Everybody's going to get
hurt," Mark said. "Some-
times you have to take one
for the team."
So far, Mark, the Rollers'


president, better known as
"Hellborn" has left a few
marks of her own in more
ways than one, as she
attempts to get her roller
derby squad off the ground.
"I have been skating for
two years," Mark said. "I was
part of an old team that had
broken up. Some of the
other girls and I decided to
start a new team.
"We started with no
money, no help and no
experience doing derby.
We've done a lot of fundrais-
ing, car washes and bake
sales.
"Seventy percent of the


people have been pretty
receptive."
Jessi Smith is a prime
example. The 26-year-old
from Stuart's first contact
with the Rollers was taking
pictures of the team, which
she quickly joined.
"I agreed to help with the
Web Site and with press,"
Smith said. "They suckered
me into skating. It's the
hardest thing.
"I was one of those kids
during the skating parties in
the 1980s that was stuck to
the carpet wall.
"Everyone on the team has
been really helpful with how


to skate and learning how to
fall."
Aptly nicknamed "Double
Exposure," the team
treasurer has done her share
of just that falling.
"It's harder than it looks,"
Smith said. "Some of the
other girls do it like it's
nothing.
"It's a very physical sport.
It requires a lot of
endurance."
While stamina has always
been a hallmark of the
sport, the emphasis on its
rough nature came later.
The rules have remained
virtually unchanged


through its history with two
teams of five players each
competing at a time.
A jammer from each team
attempts to score by passing
the opposing team's block-
ers, earning a point for each
one they whiz by.
One of Riot City's top
scoring threats is Courtney
Fenwick, affectionately
known as "Cut-throat
Cupcake."
"I've always had a weird
obsession with cupcakes,"
Fenwick said. "I have a
tattoo of a cupcake.
"I'm a little cupcake
though. I only weigh 100


pounds."
Originally from Texas, the
Port St. Lucie resident
wasn't much into baseball
or football or anything ball-
related and only learned of
roller derby about three
years ago. She joined the
Rollers eight months ago
and quickly fell in love with
the sport and the team.
"I wanted to join for a
while, but I was too scared,"
Fenwick said. "I was too
much of a girlie-girl. I
wanted to get tough.
"It's a lot of fun. I've made

t's cool this week, but not

The wind was strong,
but not the 15 to 25 mph
that was thought to be
heading this way, so the
seas were not as high as
the prediction.
Cooler water and blue
fish just go together. Surf
anglers report blues all
day from early to late.
Both short cast and long
cast brought in 3- to 5-
pound blue fish using cut
bait. Spoons also took
their share. The pompano

blues were at all locations.
The pompano were out

everybody knows the
snook do not feed in the
cold water; I was wrong.
Anglers kept stopping by
to tell me about the trout
they were catching in
knee-deep water, and the
snook taking top water
bait. Maybe these fish
didn't know they don't like
the cooler water. Several
anglers spoke of seeing the
fish and getting out of the
boat and wading to them.
There was an excellent
trout bite with a mix of


snook on live shrimp and
on artificial bait. Fish were
just hungry after spending
days in 3 to 5 feet of water.
From Bear Point south
to the Stuart causeway, the
bite was on. Trout and

Celebrating 50 years of Ping


ifty years ago this past
week, the first Ping

from the Redwood City,
Calif. garage of Karsten and
Louise Solheim.
The Ping 1A putter

ed the beginning of a
revolution in golf club
design and manufacturing
that would see Karsten's
company grow into a brand
world-renowned for
innovation and unequalled
quality.


Karsten, with his family at

should change.
"I work in the operating
room assisting with surger-
ies," SashaYorkirons said.
"As least we know where to
go if we break something."
Despite having friends in
high places, the 30-year-old
from Port St. Lucie hopes
she's not taking her work
home with her anytime
soon. She's been skating for
just about two months and
has been injury-free.

When asked to name their
favorite color, many people will
choose "blue." This choice
hardly comes as a surprise
because blue is known, for its
calming effect, which is why
vast expanses of ocean or sky
can render us speechless. This
same calming effect can be
exerted in the home by using
blue on the walls and floors.
Because this color is so much
more relaxing than others, it
may be used to greater extent.
However, while it is okay to
apply soft, muted blues liberal-
ly throughout a room, brighter
or stronger shades of the hue
must be used more discrimi-
nately. For instance, French
blue, which can have a stimu-
lating effect, should be limited
to accessories or accent walls.
Of course, finding just the right
shade of blue for your bedroom
or living room can be a trick.
Should you choose robin's egg,
cornflower, sky, or ocean? But
what good is a calm mind if you
have a sick body? We special-
ize in interiors that are healthy
for you and for the planet, as
well as beautiful. Organic and
natural products might be
green, but they come in every
shade of blue. Our offices at
1565 SW Martin Hwy., Suite
201, Palm City, are open by
appointment only so please
call 561-756-6951 today.
HINT: Blue, which is known to
reduce anxiety, may be a par-
ticularly good choice for bed-
rooms, living rooms, and dens.


"I was curious about it,"
Yorkirons said. "I hadn't
been on skates from over 20
years. I fell a couple of
times, but it all came back
to me. It felt like I had never
taken my skates off."
Despite being new to the
sport, Yorkirons quickly
learned the value of a good
nickname.
"My derby name is U
Liked It because what's
better for a poor woman to
see after I knock her down."
She's also gotten the hang
of the proper attire.
"It's a toss up black and
electric blue pants or a
pleated schoolgirl skirt. I
have to be semi-studious."

teams for women ages 18
and older on the Treasure
Coast practice at Halpa-

teams nationwide.
"It's all 100 percent real,"
Mark said. "We use the

Association's rules. You're

Golf
From page B8
to strict engineering princi-
ples and tight manufacturing
tolerances raised the level of
product performance and
quality throughout the golf
industry. It also all led to
more golfers all over the
world enjoying the game.
When Karsten passed away
in 2000, he left a legacy of
innovation that culminated
with enshrinement into the
World Golf Hall of Fame a
year after his death.
An engineer by trade, with
an extensive background in
the defense, aerospace and
computer industries, he
remains the only engineer to
be so honored.
His wife of 63 years, Louise,
who turned 90 last year,
vividly remembers the
moment Karsten informed
her of his new putter's name.
"He came running into the
kitchen," she recalled, "and
said, 'I've got a name for my
putter.' I said 'That's nice,
honey,' and we ate our
hamburgers and vegetables
without any particular
celebration. I always wished
I'd shown more enthusiasm
that day, because he was so
excited. It changed our lives
forever."
"It's fun to look back on
those early years working
with him while I was a
teenager," says John A.
Solheim, the couple's
youngest son. "When we
were in our garage, which
was just outside of the
Phoenix city limits at the
time, I remember my dad
watched he late news every
night. At the same time, I'd be
doing my homework and
getting ready for bed. As soon
as the news ended, I'd get a
knock on the window of my
bedroom, which happened
to be connected to the
garage. When I heard that, I
knew it was time to go to
work."


John has been coming to
work ever since. Today, the
Phoenix, Ariz.-based compa-
ny, and its 1,000 workers, is
under his leadership as he
serves as chairman and CEO.
The company remains family
owned in its quest to develop
the most innovative and
highest quality golf equip-
ment in the world.
It was John who was at his
father's side from the very
beginning. His entire work
career has been at Ping,
having collected his first
"paycheck" from dad at age
15.
Like his father, John shares
a passion and understanding
for engineering that sets the
tone for the company's
insistence on improving a
product's performance
through innovative design
and precise manufacturing
techniques.
At Ping today, the primary
task of leading the product
development effort is in the
hands and mind of John's
oldest son, John K., who
trailed his grandfather
around the plant during
summer breaks from high
school. Among his experi-
ences was witnessing the
transition of the product
design process into the
computer age.
As developments in
technology transformed club
design from the hands-on,
keen-eye craftsmanship that
was the genius of Karsten
into the advanced design
tools of today, including 3D
modeling and supercomput-
ers, John K. gained an
appreciation no textbook
could ever provide.
With that knowledge, he
went on to Arizona State
University where he earned a
mechanical engineering
degree and an executive
MBA. He assumed his current
role of vice president of
engineering in 2001 and leads
a team of more than 50
engineers and researchers.
In 2007, he guided the in-

house development of Ping's
nFlight custom fitting
software, which provides
golfers an interactive, virtual
fitting experience complete
with gaming-quality graph-
ics.
"Working with (granddad)
was very enjoyable and
educational," says John K., 34.
"Every day was an adventure.
He had an amazing passion
for what he did and everyone
respected his thoughts and
ideas on every topic. He was
an engineer in every sense of
the word. We never left for the
day without a solution to that


day's problem."
Ping plans to celebrate the
milestone throughout 2009. It
kicks off its celebration at the
PGA merchandise show in
Orlando next week. At that
time, it will announce several
50th anniversary-themed
products, including a limited
edition Ping 1A putter.
"We're humbled by this
accomplishment," says his
son John, who was joined in
the family business over the
years by brothers Allan and
Karsten Louis and sister,
Sandra.
