Comes on
heels of State
Farm pull out
By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY-
Weeks after the state's
largest insurer said it
would stop offering prop-
erty coverage, a new
insurance bill is making
its way around Congress,
thanks to District 16 Rep.
Tom Rooney, R-Jupiter.
Rel. Rooney, who rep-
resents Martin and seven
other counties, says his
proposed legislation
would cut premiums and
protect policyholders.
He introduced the bill,
H.R. 998 or the Policy-
holder Disaster Protection
Act of 2009, on Feb. 12.
If passed, it would allow
insurance' companies to
defer taxes on funds used
to create "rainy day"
accounts. The money
would be held in reserve,
in case these companies
had to make large payouts
in the wake of a major
hurricane or disaster, Mr.
Rooney said.
The idea of smaller
companies without State
Farm's financial clout, tak-
ing on dropped policies
has caused concern
among some industry
insiders.
Calvin Reams, an
agency manager for Farm
Bureau Insurance Com-
pany, for instance, feared
the move could cripple
the industry, if a major
hurricane struck.
He feared small compa-
nies would be unable to
fulfill the terms of their
policies if they needed to
make bulk payouts to
homeowners.
"It's potentially disas-
trous to the insurance
industry," Mr. Reams said.
"State Farm has the largest
market share, and the rest
of the industry cannot
absorb its exposure."
In a "dear colleague" let-
ter issued to fellow con-
gressmen on Feb. 13, Rep.

Local charities face


large shortfalls


Groups appeal for donati
By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY A man writ-
ing a letter to a Stuart charity thanks
the staff for saving him from home-
lessness and desperation.
"I had never gone for help before,"
wrote the Hobe Sound man, who
asked not to be identified.
But after his employer shut its
doors, he faced eviction from his
home.
"I was so distraught," he wrote.
The story is not unlike several oth-
ers that Diane Tomasik has heard in
her role as communications manager
for House of Hope, where the calls for
help have skyrocketed 80 percent in


the last 18 months.
The agency's emer-
gency financial-assis-
tance program, which
provides one-time aid
to people in crisis,
helped 379 families last year. up
about 55 percent since 2007.
Its food pantry had to rev up distri-
bution to expand its reach 46 per-
cent, serving 126 tons of food, the
equivalent of about 296,000 meals,'
last year.
"In this economic climate, we're
seeing so many more people, but
many are different from the clients
that we typically served in,the past,"
Ms. Tomasik said.
"We're seeing a lot of folks who


have
never been in the system
before. People who have been on the
bottom rung or two of the economic
ladder are really sinking now. Those
are the folks who are coming through
our doors more and more."
But it's this spike in demand that
has left the leaders of Martin County
nonprofits fearing they might have to
start turning away applicants.

Health services tops a list of jobs still


being created on Treasure Coast


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST -
Across the fruited plain of
U.S. businesses, unemploy-
ment has continued on an
upward trend. '
Money is tight and com-
panies have had to cut back
in order to stay in business,
leaving thousands in need
of jobs.
But not everything is as
bleak as it may seem. There
are .some career fields that
are slow to be affected dur-
ing a challenging economic
climate, have withstood the


rough times and historically
come out stronger.
211 Treasure Coast, a pub-
lic service organization,
keeps a record of the calls
for various types of help it
receives.
According to a report on
the organization's Web site,
32 percent of the total calls
last year regarding employ-
ment needs came from
October through December.
At the end of December, the
unemployment rate had
reached 9.7 percent.
The Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation,
Labor Market Statistic Cen-


ter reported that in the Trea-
sure Coast metro area, two
industries that saw increas-
es in job creation were edu-
cation and health services,
with more than 1,000 jobs
created, and government,
with more than 900 jobs cre-
ated.
Gwenda Thompson, pres-
ident and CEO of Workforce
Solutions, which has loca-
tions in Indian River, Martin
and St. Lucie counties,
encouraged the unem-
ployed to continue search-
ing for jobs and not be afraid
to keep looking.
"There are a variety of


occupations that don't seem
to be as affected by econom-
ic times as other industries
and the primary one is
healthcare," said Ms.
Thompson.
"People still get sick no
matter what financial prob-
lems are going on and they
still need medical care," she
added.
Beth Pross, director of the
nursing program at Florida
Atlantic University's Trea-
sure Coast campus, foresees
a growing need for nurses in
the region.

New park draws crowds to kayak, canoe dock


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
Even before it was built,
the little park on Hutchin-
son Island was already
drawing a crowd.
Construction crews had
to usher off canoeists,
strollers and eager fisher-
men who preempted the
opening of the newly
minted Joe's River Park.
"It has been packed


since Monday," said
Chuck Barrowclough,
Martin County's environ-
mental lands administra-
tor, speaking four days
after a Feb. 9 dedication
ceremony. "Actually, it's
been packed since con-
struction."
The news comes as no
surprise to Laura Beaupre,
a county employee who
helped coordinate the
opening.
"In this economy, lots of
people are looking for free


or inexpensive recreation.
Our parks and libraries
are a good option," she
said. "We'd heard that
people were clamoring to
get in (to this park). Peo-
ple wanted to get in even
before it was done."
The new park, located at
3500 N.E. Ocean Blvd., sits
on the north end of Bob
Graham Beach, as an
addition to the island.
It features a pavilion,
boardwalk, fishing pier
and floating dock for


launching canoes, kayaks
and non-motorized ves-
sels. It spans about 15
acres, including a large
mangrove swamp.
A small parking area
offers six spots, hut offi-
cials encourage visitors to
take advantage of parking
space on Bob Graham
Beach.
Inside, small signs dot
the park, pointing out the
names and other details

about plants and the man-
grove.
"It's incredible how well-
received it has been," Mr.
Barrowclough said.
This month's opening
was a long time coming.
Martin County resident
Ruth Richardson, first took
steps to create the park
about 25 years ago, when
she donated the land to
the county in 1984.
She gave the gift in
memory of her son, Joe,
who died at age 17 in
1969,.But bureaucratic
delays hindered the proj-
ect for years.
The county was able to
raise the $275,000 con-
struction costs in recent
years, aided in part by a
$50,000 federal grant and a
commitment by the non-
profit Treasured Lands
Foundation to cover main-
tenance costs.

It came at a time when
county administrators are
considering closing sever-
al parks as part of several
proposals to trim costs
amidst deep budget cut-
backs in Martin County
and across the state.
Word of the new park,
with its free recreation
opportunities, spread
quickly.
Within days of the offi-
cial opening, county staff
said they had fielded more
than a dozen calls from
residents seeking direc-
tions and other informa-

Planners are already

a bike rack and two picnic

Teachers have fun being weightless

their students with curriculum-based experiments and lessons.

Charities
From page Al
"That's -what gives me
sleepless nights," said Jim
Vojcsik, executive director
of United Way of Martin
County. "The last thing that
we want to do is have to cut
the funding to these pro-
grams at a time when peo-
ple need them the most."
SBut unless it can raise
upward of $200,000 in the
next six weeks, the group
-night just have to make
some difficult choices.
* United Way, which funds
several charities, including
'House of Hope, last year
embarked on a campaign to


raise $2.7 million by next
March. The figure was
about $500,000 higher than
the goal set in the previous
campaign, but officials esti-
mated they would need to
increase their budget to'
cover rising demand.
Growing unemployment
and foreclosures in the
county meant that partner
agencies were struggling to
serve more clients.
Employees at the chari-
ties say it doesn't take much
to push many of the coun-
ty's residents into financial
hardship.
Even before the nation-
wide economic slump, 8.2
percent of Martin County
residents, or about 11,400


people, lived at or below the
federal poverty line, earn-
ing about $13,200 annually
for two people or $20,000
for a family of four, accord-
ing to the Florida Agency
for Workforce Innovation
a n d
the U.S. Census Bureau.
More than 16 percent of
children and single moth-
ers and about 6 percent of
people over age 65 live in
poverty.
"It doesn't take long for
families like these to get
into crisis situations," Ms.
Tomasik said.
But at the end of January
2009, United Way officials
found they were far short of
their goal.


In fact, the group was
trailing its previous per-
formance, and had raised
$200,000 less than it had by
that same period last year.
At that rate, it seemed
unlikely to meet its goal of
generating an additional
half a million in two
months.
That's why the group
issued .a public call for
assistance this month,
sending an "SOS" to media,
businesses and individuals.
"United Way 'of Martin
County agencies and clients
are struggling to survive
through these harrowing
economic times," it stated.
Miguel Coty, Martin
Memorial Health Systems


vice president of marketing
and communications,
who's also chairing the
fundraising campaign,
issued a somber message to
Martin County residents.
"This is an SOS to the
community. Should it go
unheeded, there will be cat-
astrophic and lasting con-
sequences not -simply on
the quality of life here, but
in the ability to live life for
thousands of residents," he
said. "This is a plea ... to
save the community."
For its part, House of
Hope, like other charities, is
continuing its efforts to
meet the brisk demand.
Its clothing program dis-
tributed 50,000 items of


clothing last year, and its
food pantry provides boxes
of foods to families who
would otherwise go hungry.
"Often, the food pantry is
the first point of contact for
a family in crisis," Ms.
Tomasik said.
For-the Hobe Sound man
who wrote the thank-you
letter, the agency was a life
raft. By giving him $400 to
help pay a month's rent, it
helped stop his eviction. He
says he has since found a
job, and is working to
rebuild his life.
"This seems like a small
amount, but it could
change someone's life com-
pletely," Ms. Tomasik said.

PEARLS
he largest and rarest of all
earl oysters, and the one
that produces the finest
pearl nacre, is the South
Sea pearl oyster-the
PINCTADA maxima which
is only found in one isolated
region between North
Australia and Burma. Due
to pollution and over
exploitation, there remain
very few significant wild
oyster beds and theses are
t6day protected through'
diving quotas by the
Australian Government.
Each oyster must be indi-
vidually hand collected by
divers in deep water, or
alternatively may be grown,
although with great difficul-
ty, in hatcheries and then
returned to the wild for a
number of years, in order to
allow them to grow into
adult oysters. These oys-
t6rs have great value for
their mother-of-pearl inlay
trade as well as for the finer
pearls they produce. The
quality of South Sea cul-
tured pearls is assessed by
five characteristics. These
are luster, complexion,
shape, size and color.
Every pearl is sorted and
graded according to these
virtues, yet when selecting
pearls, it must be remem-
bered that beauty is ulti-
mately in the eye of the
beholder.

The move came after
Florida insurance regulators
denied it a rate increase of,
more than 47 percent.
But the firm said that bil-
lions of dollars in losses dur-
ing the 2004 hurricane sea-
son forced it to borrow $750
million from its parent com-
pany, which it has not been
able to repay.
Regulators have until
April to decide whether
they'll approve the compa-

In the meantime, Mr.

change existing regulations
that allow insurers to
reserve only against losses

"We must do more to pro-

In the last two years, Molly's
House has seen a growing
demand for its services.
In 2008, it housed 266 fami-
lies, a significant increase over
the previous year, when it
served 182.
The 12-year-old hospitality
house has been home to
thousands, housing about
5,700 people since its incep-
tion.
It is named after Molly
Sharkey, a Palm City girl who
died of leukemia. But before
her death, the teenager who
had traveled extensively with
her parent for medical care,
dreamed of creating a home-
like setting for families like
hers.
Supporters can purchase

them up from the group at
Macy's on Feb. 28.
Other charities, such as
United Way of Martin County,
have also signed on for the
venture.
They will keep all proceeds
from each $5 shopping pass
they sell.
Last year, Molly's House
raised $500 from the effort.
The money went toward
upkeep and maintenance of
the house, Ms. Murtaugh said.
A call to Macy's department
store for comment was not
returned by press time.

Additional facts
ablut Riverside
National Bank

Riverside National Bank
was founded in September
1982 byVemon Smith togeth-
er with certain St. Lucie
County, community leaders.
Riverside National Bank is
based in Fort Pierce and has
60 branches in 10 counties
throughout the Treasure
Coast, Space Coast and
Heartland regions of Florida
(St Lucie, Brevard, Indian
River, Okeechobee, Martin,
Palm Beach, Polk, Volusia,
Highlands and Lake, River-


side Bank of the Gulf Coast
does not operate in any of
these counties). Riverside
National Bank has assets of
approximately $3.8 billion.

Riverside National Bank is a
completely separate and dif-
ferent legal entitywhich oper-
ates under a federal charter
issued by the U.S. Comptrol-
ler of the Currency. Riverside
National Bank is primarily
regulated bythe OCC.

Because the banks operate
in different geographical
areas of the state, very few
customers of Riverside
National Bank are believed tq
be customers of Riverside
Bank of the Gulf Coast. Cus-
tomers sometimes have
accounts or loans with multi-
ple banks, but any overlap of
customers is believed to be
nominal and no greater than
with other banks located in
Florida.-

Vernon Smith, recently
retired CEO of Riverside
.National Bank, was the pri-
mary founder of both banks -
Riverside National Bank in
1982 and Riverside Bank of
the Gulf Coast in 1997-which
resulted in the common use
of the word "Riverside." How-
ever, the fact remains that
they are completely different
banks. The closure of River-

An end to snail mail?

Except for very little, the federal government delivers little
service and expects to be rewarded. The Post Office comes to
mind. In the 60s, I could get a letter from Louisiana to rural
Pennsylvania in'two days for 4 cents.
Today it is considerably more, with it taking four to 11 days.
The postal service no longer needs to sort by hand, but planes
(I've been told) are not always available).
The postal service has noticed a huge reduction in volume. It
is no mystery. In any business it is customer service and value
for money spent. The USPS is no longer competitive. The pony
express was replaced when the telegraph came about.
Possibly, the postal service has seen its time.

Re: the economy

Whoever submitted the rant 'An opinion on the state of the
economy," hit the nail right on the head.
Greed is profoundly rampant in this country and yet our gov-
ernment tries to force feed our political process down other
countries throats. Yes, it's the only process we have, but it needs
vast improvement
As of 2008, the percentage of Congress holding law bar num-
bers was 88 percent, meaning, 88 percent of members of con-
gress are or were attorneys-lawyers-esquires. These folks know
the laws and loopholes as they create, vote and capitalize
sweetly from this knowledge and power of vote. The problem is
These bottom feeding, coattail riding twits don't inform the
hard-working tax-paying citizens, who pay for their position, of

gluttonous and greed would not be worth these career politi-

illegal immigrants able to get food stamps.a&9have Social

Occupational therapy is not just for work


hen my husband,
Roy began
occupational
therapy to help combat
the effects ofAlzheimer's
and Parkinson's diseases,
we were both a bit
puzzled. It sounds as
though it's meant to get
you back to work, but that
is only one small part of
the picture.
The Chicago State
University Department of
Occupational Therapy
defines the specialty as
"providing service to
individuals whose abili-
ties to function physically,
mentally and cognitively
have been impaired by
injury, illness, develop-
mental problems or the
aging process."
These fancy words
mean that occupational
therapists help people
perform their activities of
daily life, whatever.they
are,,to the best of their
ability. That may include
making tasks easier by
adapting the environment
to the needs of the patient
or by helping the patient
with problem-solving
skills to enable them to
regain the ability to make
good decisions in com-

very now and again I
get an e-mail
question and the
exchange that results
makesme go "Hmm ... I
bet there are other people.
out there who have
similar questions."
Then I try to remember
to ask whoever's e-mailing
me if it's OK to use their
question in an upcoming
column along with their
first name. I don't think
I've ever had anyone tell
me no, and this week
Frank on the Treasure
Coast was kind enough to
OK the following:
"Sean, I have enjoyed
reading your column for a
long time. But I have
never contacted you
before. I hope you can
help me with this ques-
tion.
"About a month or so
ago, I started having a
problem with opening
links in e-mails I receive.
When I click on a link to a
URL, it takes about 20 or
30 seconds to bring up the
site. If I copy the URL and
paste it into my IE7, no
problem. I tried the
'tools/options/advanced'
in IE and made sure that
the 'automatically check
for IE updates' was not
checked. I even tried
removing all of my IE add-
ins, still the delay occurs.
Do you have any ideas?
My environment is..."


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


At this point, Frank was
helpful enough to tell me
as much information as
he could about his sys-
tem, things such as make
and model, amount of
ram, version of Windows
- you know, the kind of
details that would help
me possibly answer his
question.
And my reply:
"Hi Frank: Thank's for
writing. To be quite
honest with you, I have
practiced the art of
copying and pasting the
Web addresses out of my
e-mail client (Outlook
Express on one machine
and Outlook on another)
and into my browser
window manually for
several years now.
In fact, I cringe and
curse under my breath
when I accidentally click a
link in e-mail, rather than
copy to highlight, because
the process of the e-mail
client invoking the
browser and then passing
the URL off to the address
bar has so many things
involved (behind the
scenes) that it takes many
times longer that way
than it does to just copy


the link, maximize the
browser, then paste the
link into the address bar.
I've noticed that this
delay is present whether
you are using Internet
Explorer, Firefox, Chrome,
Opera or any of the other
browsers out there. The
delay seems to be coming
from the e-mail client side.
(Outlook Express, Out-
look, Thunderbird, etc.)
and doesn't seem to be an
issue with the browser.
Now, Web mail is a
different story. E-mail
messages in Web mail
sites (such as Yahoo's
Yahoo mail or Google's g-
mail) are already in the
browser environment, so
clicking the link actually
works as instantly as you
would expect (I usually
right click the link and
then open in another tab,
,so as not to have to use
the back button to navi-
gate back to the Web
mail).
Sorry I couldn't give you
a "quick fix" but you aren't
alone in noticing the
delay.
And before you reply
with "well, it used to work
fast..." understand that
doesn't matter: it's slow
now. Every machine is a
dynamic environment
and things change all the
time. Is it worth the time,
aggravation and frustra-
tion to try to figure out


what changed, or is it just
easier to copy and past
the address from one
window to the other?
Me? Like I said, I've
been copying and pasting
for years now'cause the
"automatic" transition
from e-mail to browser is
less than reliable.
Hope that helps and
thanks again for writing.
PS. May I have your
permission to use this
dialogue in an upcoming
column using just your
first name?"
Now, as far as my answer
goes, when I.re-read it, I
almost feel like it's a cop
out. I mean, I don't actual-
ly tell Frank what's going
on or how to fix it,'I just
confirm the issue and end
up telling him to live with
it.
I realize some readers
may not find that very
helpful (and I probably
will get some knowledge-
able readers who will e-
mail me telling me what's
going on) but I think what
it all boils down to is to
chose your battles wisely;
some issues just aren't
worth the time to trou-
bleshoot, especially when
there is already a fairly
simple work around in
place.

"There is an aging popula-
tion here in Florida and in
the Treasure Coast as we see
adults continue to live longer
and stayin this area," said Dr.
Pross.
"We are going to need
more clinical nurses as care
becomes more complex and
varied," she said.
/Career paths within the
healthcare industry are quite
varied and good choices for
people with a number .of
strengths,
"Not everyone is going to
have to be confronted with
blood or human waste,
because there are so many
occupations, almost every-
one can find something chal-
lenging and satisfying to do,"
said Ms. Thompson.


Public relations and
administrative assistants are
some examples of these
positions, Ms. Thompson
said.
On the other hand, the
funeral, or death care indus-
try, is another career field
where a successful business
model can be found.
"We are definitely an
industry that will still be
there tomorrow," said
Richard Haisley.
Mr. Haisley .owner of Hais-

Haisley.
Services offered by the
funeral homes include a
place for services to be held,
a dining area for family to
gather after the services and
much more.
Baby boomers seem to
want more in their services,
more speakers and live
music, said the funeral direc-
tor.
"We take on the role of
concierge, event planner, as
well as grief counselor," said
Mr. Haisley.
At a time when money is
tight, it may seem strange
that accountants are in
demand, but Gregory
Bushong, assistant dean of
the college of business at
FAU on the Treasure Coast,
said the accounting program
is the largest program on
camlius.
"It seems that accountants


do rather well, they're not
recession proof, but they
tend to do rather well," said
Mr. Bushong.
In the current financial sit-
uation, a midlife career
change, either by choice or
by force, can open avenues
that people may not have
considered before, such as
accounting, Mr. Bushong
said.
A recession may actually
increase the demand for
good financial planning
practices and increase the
amount of people wanting
assurance and advice on
their decisions, said Mr.
Bushong.
Another career field that
Ms. Thompson noted to be
fairly stable in rough times is
public service, such as fire-
fighters, police officers and
other security-related posi-
tions.


heads should get off their bottoms and do something about it.
The offices should link together by computers, too.
Why does the Social Security office issue new cards and num-
bers when someone loses theirs? They should look up the per-
son on the file database before issuing new card, then issue a
new one with the same number. There are some people with
two or more Social Security cards. Then they head to food
stamp office to get help with these new cards.
There are so manyAmericans who need help in this area and
can't get it because of this problem. The system we have is bro-
ken down, so, let's fix it now.

MARTIN COUNTY The
Stuart Sunrise Rotary Club's
fundraising committee met
to lay outplans for 2009
events aimed at raising
funds for the club's annual

The club's main fundrais-

geared toward donating
college scholarships to


underprivileged students
who would 'pot otherwise
attend a college or universi-

These students often
come from single-parent or
broken homes, are forced to
work full-time while com-
pleting their high school
education, are raising sib-
lings and are not usually
selected for other scholar-
ships.

TREASURE COAST In a
continuing effort to broad-
en access to public records
and enhance customer
service, the South Florida
Water Management District
has added more than 30
years of regulatory permit-
ting information to an exist-
ing-online database.
The process entailed con-
verting more than 280,000
microfiche (sheets of micro-
film) containing 9.1million
documents dating back to
the 1970s to electronic form.
The SFWMD is taking
strides to further enhance
customer service, promote
public access to govern-
ment and more efficiently
respond to customer
inquiries. The result of this
project is direct, easy and
quick public access to per-
mit files, representing a
more customer-friendly and
cost-effective way to do
business.
MThis system brings gov-
ernment to the residents of
Fl6rida and utilizes the' lat-
est' technology to improve
public access," said SFWMD
governing board Chairman
Eric Buermann. "It's also a
faster way of transacting
and processing permits and
a more efficient method of
doing business with the dis-
trift."


Previously, district staff
had to access and manually
search microfiche stored in
file cabinets to respond to
requests for information.
The information then had to
be printed, faxed e-mailed
or sent via regular mail.
In 2006 alone, more than
10,400 requests for assis-
tance were processed.
The district launched its
ePermitting system in Sep-
tember 2005. It allows cus-
tomers to conduct a variety
of business, including sub-
mitting environmental
resource and consumptive
use permit applications,
information about permit
compliance, accessing fee
schedules and automatical-
ly calculating permitting
fees.
The tool also allows cus-
tomers to apply for, track
and manage permits online
in real-time, at anytime.
Efforts to expand the sys-
tem are part of the district's
open government initiatives
to improve Floridians' abili-
ty to access public docu-
ments.
All converted data, as well
as existing applications, can
be accessed online at

ting/.

Through Spread the Word,
Ms. French is able to' sit

Today is your day,


Religion Notes


make the
The following story was
sent to me recently by
a longtime creative
spiritual friend, Nancy
Kleinfield. It voices every-
thing I have been writing
about over the years and
then some. I felt you would
eqjoy it as-much as I have.
Thank you, Nancy.
,Today is your day. Are you
a pvriter, a charmer, a giver,
a taker, a singer, a mathe-
matician, a magician, are
ydu spiritual, happy an
athlete? Who are you and
what have you become? Are
ydu living your intended
life? What are your dreams,
hopes, inspirations, aspira-
tions? Who are your heroes?
Db you have a hero? Who do
ylu admire and look up to?
Do you know your true
desire or have you lost your
way? Have you lost touch
with your reality and are
just going through the
motions?
How do people find their
dream, purpose, light, true
self or true love in life? It's
sibnple really. If you have
dreams and are not follow-
ing them that is easy to
sdlve. Just do one small
thing a day to get you back
on track. You don't have to
take on the whole world.
If you don't have dreams,
th'e next best thing is to find
your inspirations. How, you
ask? By anything you see
tat ignites a fire or moti-
vates you. Whether it be a
picture in a magazine, a
person you see, certain
colors, cars, a material item,
a movie, story or book. Post
it on a vision board and
keep looking at it and'add to
it.iventually it will sink into
yodir deeper mind and the
vision and inspiration will
m;4e your desire turn into a
reality.
.4aybe you want a better
b4dy. Visualize it. Put a
picture of your ideal on your
vi, n board. Look at it
ev'xday. Tell yourself that
v.% are now creating the
b tifiul new image and it
is riking. Sounds silly, but
Sefralk and visualization
arg he secret path many
farnous.athletes use.
without visions we have
n( bals.
you want more money,
fim new ways to generate
it.'here are multiple paths
to;money, not just one.
Pretend you are financing
your own project. Some
multi-million businesses


most of it


started in someone's garage
or basement for only $100.
Look it up in history. You
have to dream big.
If you want love, give love.
If it is returned, you have
found a true friend. Love
comes in all forms. You have
to open your heart and give
in order to receive.
If you have been hurt, let
the wound heal. Refuse to
close yourself off. The one
who hurt you was not the
true love. Open up and
welcome a new path being
offered. It could be stronger,
better and more passionate
and loving beyond your
wildest dreams.
Be kind to all man and
womankind, creatures and
nature on the earth. It takes
positive thoughts and
feelings to do this. Be gentle
and kind. Pure positive
energy renews itself out of
kindness.
If you are pushed out of a
love relationship, job or any
other situation, it is the
higher power leading you to
a different path, a better
path. Keep flowing with
positive energy into the
light, into the laughter, into
a happy place. Open up and
accept all the good coming
your way. Drink in every
opportunity for love,
connections, fun things and
joy. You possess powers in
the mind, heart and spirit
that can make anything you
want to happen. Just take
action one small step at a
time and victory is assured.

James can help bring
renewed hope and joy to
your life. A personalized
astrology chart, private
reading, exciting home or
office party, inspirational
group talk or positive
business forecast are just a
few of the special services he
offers. Call (772) 334-9487 or

telling me something
that's a little bit danger-
ous."
Mr. Detweiler also likes a
song to have a strong focal
point and cites an unlikely
example.
"It should be strong
enough to bear the song,
like Gershwin with 'I've
Got a Crush on You,'" he
said. "It can be simple and
powerful. You feel like it's
always existed."
Mr. Detweiler and Ms.
Berquist met some 20
years ago in' college in
Canton, Ohio, and it was
chemistry that finally
brought them together
professionally and person-
ally.


"There was a little
chemical reaction we did-
n't have words for when we
walked in front of an audi-
ence," Mr. Detweiler said.
"The room changed when
Karin sang. We felt 'Wow,
what is that?' It's another
unsolved mystery, that
when you put certain peo-
ple together, there's some-
thing going on."
The band, which now
numbers five, has a strong
following in the United
States and Canada, which
they toured with the Cow-
boy Junkies.

From costuming to set design, 'La
Cage aux Folles' is captivating


By Barbara Yoresh
Entertainment writer
VERO BEACH Were
you ever given a package
that was stunningly deco-
rated with big bows, multi-
colored ribbons and span-
gle-like wrapping paper
which, when opened,
revealed a truly useful,
rather than merely frivo-
lous present?
"La Cage aux Folles," a
lavishly staged musical
now playing at Riverside
Theatre through March 8
is such a gift.
Audiences will be capti-
vated and mesmerized by
the visual glitz and glam-
our of this gorgeous pro-
duction. But the substan-
tive beauty that


concurrently unfolds deals
with everyday issues of
love, family, shame and
acceptance.
"La Cage" is masterfully
directed by Bill Castellino
who returns to Riverside a
second time this season to
expertly guide his cast .in
their exploration and dis-
covery of what makes us
all human, regardless of
differences.
Choreographer Joshua
Bergasse wins kudos for
putting his acrobatic
dancers through an almost
stupefying range of dance
showmanship. that
includes a rhythmic tap
chorus line worthy of the
Radio City Rockettes as
well as en pointe ballet.

Week of 2-20-2009
Aries-March 21-April 19
Life is looking positive for
you, Aries. You have a great
friend and protector in Mars.
Now is the time to launch
new projects. Your energy
and natural rhythms will be
strong for the next three
months. When you get that
right feeling within, listen to
it, trust it and act on it. It is
your instincts giving you the
green light to go.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Making a list every day of the
things and events you need
to address will help keep you
focused on the most impor-
tant. Keep working off the
top of the list. Pace yourself.
You don't have to get every-
thing done at once. Less
important ones can wait.
Stay centered. There is calm
at the eye of the storm. You
will prevail.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
When you give, you give
freely. You have a great reser-
voir of love and talent to
draw from. Your sensitivity to

From page B1
* And set designer Cliff
Simon has created lavish
backdrops that transport
us to St. Tropez and the
shiny splendor of the
nightclub La Cage aux
Folles.
To be sure, this show is
the blockbuster of River-
side's season. It has every
element of theater at its
best with a large, multi-tal-
ented cast, costumes of
silk, lam6 and sequins
which drip with eye-pop-
ping color, unforgettable
music and a story which
goes straight to the heart.
The audience is given a
glimpse into the larger
family of mankind through
this unique family of two
gay men and their son.
Though the family struc-
ture may be less conven-
tional than most, it
resounds with the love,
devotion and the angst of
parent/child relationships.
When the show pre-
miered on Broadway in
1983, its drag queen,
homosexual-themed story


was revolutionary for the
stage, but the show's uni-
versal elements found a
broad-based audience.
Twenty-six years later,
the characters still resonate
with meaning for audi-
ences and the stunning
dazzle of drag show enter-
tainment remains spell-
binding.
Amid such glamour, we
nonetheless watch a peel-
ing away of external layers
and make-up to expose the
core of this family unit and
how even an adult child
can sometimes threaten
the parents' relationship
and break their hearts.
Benjamin Howes plays
drag entertainer Albin
(known as Zaza on stage)
and Richard White is
Georges, his partner of 20
years and nightclub owner.
The fun begins when
Georges' son from an earli-
er, misguided relationship
decides to marry the
daughter of an ultra- con-
servative politician.
Broadway/television/mo
v-ie/recording veteran Mr.
White is a compelling stage
presence with his tall, good
looks and superbly reso-
nant voice that reminded
this theatergoer of a young
John Raitt.
His characterization of
Georges embraced every
aspect of his life as night-


club owner, father and lov-
ing partner for 20 years to
Albin.
Mr. Howes stole the show
with his endearing portray-
al of Albin. His talents as
nightclub star Zaza, loving
heart as "mother" to son
Jean-Michel and as "wife"
to Georges reminded
everyone that it is more
than acceptable to say "I
am what I am ... I am my
own special creation."
Musical messages in
"Look Over Tere" to see
"someone who puts him-
self last so you can come
first" and "The Best of
Times" to remind us to
cherish the moment and
"live and love as hard as
you know how" served as a
loving wake-up call that, on
this night before Valentine's
Day, was supremely appro-
priate.
A dazzling grand finale
with a humorous twist had
the appreciative audience
on their feet in ovations of
"bravo."
If you see no other show
this season, see this one.
Tickets are $31-$45.
Riverside Theatre.is located
at 3250 Riverside Park
Drive inVero Beach.

MARTIN COUNTY The
United Way of Martin Coun-
ty is approximately
$250,000 behind where it
was in last year's campaign,
meaning UWMC needs to
raise $750,000 simply to
provide the bare minimum
of what is necessary to con-
tinue its pledge of deliver-
ing assistance to Martin
County.
This year, the communi-
ty- needs goal, based on the
requests from local UWMC
agencies, totaled $2.7 mil-
lion, an increase of $500,000
from the 2007-08 campaign.
The campaign sought to
raise the additional
$500,000 in an effort to
meet a dramatic increase in
community need.
In the past year, requests
for food have gone up 50
percent. Requests for emer-
gency assistance, including
items such as rent and utili-
ties, have gone up 55 per-
cent. And requests for chil-
dren's clothing have gone
up 20 percent.
Miguel Coty, UWMC
campaign chairman and
Martin Memorial Health
Systems vice president of
marketing and communica-
tions, delivered a somber
message last week during a
press conference.
He stressed the commu-
nity's growing needs and
the devastating impact of
not meeting this year's
needs-based campaign goal
of $2.7 million.
"This is an SOS to the
community.- Should it go
unheeded, there will be cat-
astrophic and lasting conse-
quences not simply on the
quality of life here, but in
the ability to live life for
thousands of residents," Mr.
Coty said. "This is a plea. It
is a plea to the community
from the community to save
the community."

The New York Mets biggest off-season acquisition, Francisco (K-Rod) Rodriquez, gets a
taste of the media swarm that comes with the New York franchise during an interview
from the dugout at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie. Spring training began this week with
the Mets first home game scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 26. Rodriquez earned a Major
League record of 62 saves in his role as close for the Anaheim Angels last season.

Mets hope to finish what

they start in 2009


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
PORT ST. LUCIE The
last two seasons for the New
York Mets have been a lot
like the weather around the
Treasure Coast of late.
A little warm, but mostly
cold that left a lot of people
sick.
After a monumental late-
season roilapse in 2007 that
saw the Mets lose 12 out of
their final 17 games and
drop the National Leagle
,.asitle Xq the Philadelphia
SPhi es, New York hoped to
avoid an encore perform-
ance last year.
After remaining relatively
quiet during the offseason,
the Mets' brass made strides
to do just that by trading for
Minnesota Twins' ace Johan'
Santana:-^shrtly before the


start of spring training.
After a rocky time in Port
St. Lucie, the Mets appeared
headed inthe right direction,
winning two of three against
the Marlins, including San-
tana's strong start in the sea-
son opener.
The rest of the year, how-
ever, seemed to resemble a
roller coaster ride at Great
Adventure, with.New York
failing to maintain any con-


sistency in the season's first
three months. The Mets'
lackluster play ultimately led
to the demise of manager
Willie Randolph, who was
fired after, ironically, a win
over the Los Angeles Angels
on June 16.
Replaced by Jerry Manuel,
the team finally showed
some spark after a loss to the

Mets
From page B6
Phillies on July 4 ignited a
10-game winning streak that
left the Mets at 52-44.
The rest of the season
proved to be less fruitful
though. NewYork once again
failed to hold a division lead
and was left out of the play-
offs for a second straight
year.
The lone bright spot was
Santana, whose 16-7 mark
and 2.53 ERA were worthy of
Cy. Young consideration
despite pitching the last
month of the season with a
torn meniscus in his left
knee. Santana's record, as,
- well as his fellow teammates
on the mound, could have
been a lot better if not for the
ineptitude of the Mets'
bullpen, which was the


worst in baseball.
Billy Wagner performed
valiantly, notching 27 saves
before being shut down for
Tommy John surgery on
Sept. 8, but the rest of the
Mets' relievers treated a lead
like a hot potato and
dropped nearly every one.
To that end, general man-
ager Omar Minaya went out
and signed arguably the best
closer in baseball, Francisco
Rodriguez. Rodriguez nailed
down a record 62 saves for
the Angels last season and
has been among the best
relievers over the past four
years. -
Minaya also traded for J.J.
Putz, who will hopefully pro-
vide a bridge to Rodriguez
from the Mets' starting four,
which remains intact from a
season ago.
The fifth spot is still up in
the air with Tim Redding,


Freddy Garcia and Jon Niese
in the mix.
While the Mets produced
a lot of runs during the sea-
son 799 -, which was
good enough for second
best,. many of the hitters
struggled down the stretch.
There has been a push of late
for the team to add free-
agent slugger Manny
Ramirez, but Minaya seems
to be done'with any signifi-
cant moves after re-signing
Oliver Perez.
If Ramirez does bring his
impressive resume to New
York, the lineup, which
already features David
Wright, Carlos Beltran and
Carlos Delgado would be
one of the most feared in
baseball, possibly a modern
day Murderer's Row.
Manuel has also toyed
with the ideal of moving Luis
Castillo into the lead-off spot


Jon Switzer pitches in
front of the New York
Mets coaching staff
during the first day of
spring training
workouts for pitchers
and catchers at
Tradition Field in Port
St. Lucie. Switzer
played previously
with the Tampa Bay
Rays and is a non-
roster invitee for the
Mets.

and shifting Jose lReyes to
third in the order to get the
most out of each player.
"I'd like to try to get him to
another level of play,"
Manuel said of Reyes. "I'd
like being able to move him.
around to best use his talent
and skills in such a way to
dominate a game."
"(For Luis), I'm waiting to
see how he responds."
While hope springs eter-
nal, only time will tell if this
version of New York Mets
joins the elite company of
teams past like the '86 and
'69 squads or the dismal fra-
ternity of the past two.
"The whole idea of spring
training is that the team is
first," Manuel said. "My job
is to get the machine up and
running where everybody
knows their role and knows
what they're going to do and
playing good baseball."


Blast baseball team


shoots to top


By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
For a while it was "close
but no cigar" for the
Frozen Ropes Blast base-
ball team.
Now they're the ones
who are smoking.
The U13 team recently
captured consecutive
championships after win-
ning the Cocoa New Year's
Classic Tournament in the
beginning of January. The
victory was preceded by a
3-0 run through the Trea-
sure Coast United States
Specialty Sports Associa-
tion playoffs that landed
the Blast on top.
"To win back-to-back
championships is very
exciting," coach Peter
Crocitto said. "There were
a bunch of 13-year-old
boys that played hard
every single game."
Winning titles has
become commonplace for
the Blast after several near
misses early in the team's
existence.
"We've only been
around for 1 1/2 years,"


Crocitto said. "In Cocoa
Beach as a team we played
our 100th game. We're now
70-33."
While the Blast have put
together an impressive
resume, the wins haven't
ah\a\s come easy, espe-
cially in the Treasure Coast
championship. Seeded
sixth out of eight teams,
they had to face the top
three teams in the league
in consecutive matchups,
all in one day.
"Three games in one day
is a long day," Crocitto
said. "It was 18 innings of
baseball."
The Blast took on the
No. 3 Stuart Storm in the
opening round and won 7-
2.
"We got up early and
broke it open," Crocitto
said.
In the semifinals it was
the No. 2 seeded Boca
Stars turn to taste defeat,
as the Blast won a squeak-
er, 4-3.
"That was a tight game
throughout," Crocitto said.
"We had solid pitching and

Alex Buncy, left, and Robert Gendreau, right, of the Jensen Beach wrestling team are two
reasons the Falcons are in contention for a state championship after claiming the Region
4-1A crown recently.


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'CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectati
customers.


S Virtually every car dealer ofeauca
In Florida adds a charge to .
the price of cars he sells, a SOphistic
S"dealer ee/doc fee/dealer
prep" fee ranging from $500 1much hig
to nearly $1.00. Th'is extra
charge is programmed into "'". '"
your computer It has oeen made illegal in
many states including California. but is still
legal in Flonda. The reason you charge this
tee is simply to increase nme pnce of the car
EMPLOINMENT. and your profit in such a manner that it is not
Sk noticed by your customers. This is just plain
SIfout culture, wrong. I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
sounds like.pne and when I stopped charging it a lew years
that fflwith yur., ago It was scary. But I did it because I could
. -de ilat.fn,. fty no longer, in good conscience, mislead my
bU. S'#PII customers Just because everybody else
S .wot.' .. as doing the same thing. did not make it
,, correct


to
~a~All


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
Stomers' 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
ation are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
her today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact. I am aeli aware ihat th;s
-'..'' .. ". 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 nave the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be me exception If

ENVIRONMENTALLY
RESPONSIBLE
FLOORING
If you are looking for flooring
material that is environmentally
responsible, bamboo has
emerged as a popular choice in
recent years. However, while the
plants grow quickly, not all bam-
boo flooring is "green." The fact
is that some manufacturers cut
down old-growth forests in China
to plant more bamboo. In addi,
tion, some bamboo flooring is
made with high levels of
formaldehyde. To make sure that
you're getting a "green" bamboo
product, ask about the manufac-
turer's harvesting practices.
Inquire also about the use of
glues with high levels of
formaldehyde that are some-
times a part of the floor-making
process. Cork is an even greener
flooring product that is made
from the bark of trees. It grows
back after it is harvested.
Choosing an environmentally
responsible product for your
home can make you feel good.
But understanding what is actu-
ally "green" is clearly a compli-
cated issue. I have more than 20
years of experience creating
beautiful green interiors for
homes, offices, and yachts. I can
take care of everything, from
bamboo floors to low-VOC ceil-
ings. Call 561-756-6951 to learn
more about my services. My
appointment-only office is locat-
ed at 1565 SW Martin Hwy., Suite
201, Palm City, FL '34990.
HINT: Linoleum is a very "green"
flooring material that consists of
linseed oil, flour, rosin, jute, and
finely ground limestone.

Low VISION EYE DOCTORS HELP




LEGALLY BLIND TO SEE AGAIN


Members of the International Academy of Low Vision
Specialist help those with macular degeneration to keep
reading and driving.
By Lois Neinken
Freelance Writer
Just because you have macular degeneration or other eye
diseases like diabetic retinopathy doesn't mean you must give
up your favorite activities.
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 binoc-
ulars 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 pr. Gannon, a low vision specialist
with offices In Miami, 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
panel member of the International Academy of Low Vision.
Specialist Dr. Gannon is the founder and director of the
Low Vision Institute and the American Foundation of Low
Vision Rehabilitation.
Macular Degeneration is the most common eye disease
among the senior population. As many as 25% of those over
65 have some degree of degeneration. The macula is one small
part of the entire retina, but it is the most sensitive part and
gives us sharp images. When it degenerates, macular degener-
ation 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 that what causes macular.degen-
eration. But it is know that UV light from the sun is a major con-
tributihg factor. Other factors are smoking, aging of course, and
improper nutrition, and 15 to 20% of the time it is genetic. There
are two types, wet and dry. The wet type involves leaky blood
vessels which may be able to be treated. Unfortunately, it may
only result in a temporary fix as other leaks usually occur.
Our job is to figure out everything and anything possible to
keep a person functioning," says Dr. Gannon. Donald Paquette,
72, a former county assessor from Anaheim, California was
seen last November, "I could not read the street signs soon
enough when driving and I couldn't read my saxophone music
anymore."
The doctor fit him with bioptic telescope glasses.
"Amazing!" says Donald.
"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


Patient Bobble Seidman using tele-microscopic glasses for
reading, writing, playing cards, etc.
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 bookkeep-
er before visiting Dr. Gannon. She received a pair of special
telemicroscope 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 created a special split tele-microscope 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 sun-
glass. 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 lev-
els of vision and different desires.
Dr. Gannon can be reached toll free at 1-866-942-2020.
You can visit Dr. Gannon at www.LowVisionlnstitute.com. Free
seminars for senior centers are also available.

at a great week-
\ end, no wind,
V beautiful flat
water and fish. I love this
place!
With the incoming tidal
movement at the causeway
relief bridges, you may
have needed a reservation
to get a spot to fish.
Pompano was biting
from both causeways,
using those little jigging
spoons. Most met their
pompano limits. Yes, the
limits are the same no
matter where you catch
them, 11 to 20 inches is the
slot, and six fish per day
with only one more than 20
inches.
Bridge anglers had three


good days of action. That's
not to say the pompano
have not been there the
rest of the week because
they have. It is all about the
incoming tide. If you can
catch this you can catch
pompano.
Three more busy loca-
tions were Sailfish Flats,
Hells Gate and the North
Fork. Trout were every-
where, from Bear Point
south, using root beer jerk
bait in 2 to 3 feet. The bite
was best from 9 a.m.; let
the sun warm the water a
few degrees.
Several big trout were
released off that flat from
Indian Riverside Park
south, past the Dolphin

Grill and south'to the area
south of the Stuart cause-
way. There were reports of
big trout on the west shore
and good numbers on the
east side of the river.
Red fish were north of
County Line Road to
Midway Road on the west
side of the river in shallow
water. The slot-size fish
were there through mid-
morning.
So what happened to the
snook? There are a few
nighttime anglers with
these as a target species,
but what about daytime?


Fish the shaded water,
look under the docks, look
for ambush points, big
baits and big fish. There are
plenty of sand perch,
snapper and drum to keep
most anglers busy.
From the surf there have
been plenty of blue fish'
throughout the day. Spoons
have been working for the
early anglers, but cut baits
have been on the menu all
day.
When the blues slowed,
the whiting and pompano
were hot, and then the
blues were back. It really
was an excellent weekend
for surf anglers.
Offshore one day the
baits were everywhere and
the next day a hard find. If
you have a favored loca-
tion, the fish are there,
they're just deep, so let your


rigs go deep.
Dolphin were scattered
from 80-feet out. They
weren't big fish, but of size
to put in'the boat. Most
sails were seen jumping,
but not at your baits,
however, the kings and
bonita were there. I'm not
sure where the bonita came
from, but they were there.
Run a couple of baits
below the surface; tlfat is
where the other 90 percent
of the fish feed and pay
attention.
Remember there are
divers out in those waters.

"It was pretty cool," Fitz-
patrick said. "We beat a lot
of the best teams out there."
The New Year's tourna-
ment began on Jan. 2 and
the Blast picked up where
they left off in 2008 with an
impressive 9-6 win over


Team Rawlings in pool play.
The Blast then had to face
the Central Florida Red
Raiders, the team that had
defeated them in the cham-
pionship last year.
"They had beat us in the
championship 17-0," Fitz-
patrick said. "It felt good to
beat them this year. We
threw out best pitchers out
there."
The Blast won 8-3, guar-
anteeing the team one of the


top two spots in the playoffs.
"The kids kept it together
and never looked back,"
Crocitto said.
Having already locked up
one of the top two spots, the
Blast used their game
against the Top Prospects -
a 12-9 loss to line up their
pitching and give the regu-
lars some much-needed
rest.
"You like to go out and
play every game to win, but


the next day we played the
Ocala Blaze who were seed-
ed No. 1 in the other brack-
et."
The Blast broke open a 1-1
game late and came away
with a 6-1 win over Ocala,
setting the stage for a
rematch with the Top
Prospects to see who was
the top team.
In the end, it was the Blast
after an 8-3 win.
"It was a good feeling,"
Crocitto said. "The first loss
(to them) was still a loss. The
kids came back and we got
some excellent pitching."
Capturing the two titles
capped an impressive
eighth-month run for the
Blast. The team earned their
-first championship trophy
with a victory at the Triple
Crown Memorial Madness
Tournament in May.
A few months later, the
Blast competed in a presti-
gious tournament in Coop-
erstown, N.Y. and finished
third out of 98 teams. The
team finished 10-1, making
it to the semifinals before
falling 7-6 to the Arizona
Desert Firebirds in an extra-
inning heartbreaker.
"They're (the Blast) very
competitive," Crocitto said.
"They like playing competi-
tive teams.
"They were proud of
themselves. The parents and
coaches were proud of
them."
