Student snags top
spot in spelling bee

"Fructiferous," an adjec-
tive which means fruit-
bearing, placed a Hidden
Oaks Middle School on top
of the heap at a county-
wide spelling competition.
Seventh-grader Christian
McCarthy spelled the word
correctly to win first place at
the district's spelling bee.
He beat 41 other students
from the county's public
and private schools to snag
the top spot at the Feb. 19
event at the Blake Library.
The top 10 winners from
the local competition are
set to compete in the
Scripps Treasure Coast

Teen overcomes hurdles to


become peer role model


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY-
One day after he won the
local round of the 2009
Youth of the Year competi-
tion, Jonathan Owens was
hard to track down.
And it wasn't because he
was celebrating.
The 16-year-old Jensen
Beach High School student
had responsibilities he
could not forego.


He was among a group
of volunteers supervising
children with disabilities
on a field trip to the county
fair.
"He's a great kid," said
Suzanne Wentley, outreach
coordinator for the Martin
County chapter of the Boys
and Girls Clubs.
The Stuart teen has
already overcome several
obstacles in his life.
The child of divorced
parents, at age 10, he also


witnessed the murder of
his stepfather, who was
shot in the head.
"The (Boys and Girls)
club means the world to
me," he said. "If it wasn't for
the club, I wouldn't be the
person I am today."
Crediting the group with
keeping him "off the
streets," the teen is deter-
mined to give back to his
community.

Greek festival to feature


dancing, music, food


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST -
For the past 30 years, St.
Nicholas Greek Orthodox
Church has brought Greek
music, food and dancing to
Fort Pierce.
The tradition will contin-
ue this year when the
Greek Festival is held
March 6 through March 8.
"The purpose is to bring


our culture to the commu-
nity," said Dennis Starr,
president of the parish
council.
Apparently, the church
has accomplished that
purpose, as the event grew
to become one of the
largest events in St. Lucie
County, second only to the
fair, Mr.Starrsaid.
Every year, church mem-
bers spend hundreds of
hours cooking and making


other preparations for the
festival.
"It's a ton of work and it's
all done by the parish-
ioners," Mr. Starr said. "It's
a labor of love."
One of the traditional
highlights is church youth,
ages 5 to 18, dressed in tra-
ditional Greek costumes
dancing to Greek music.

Shards of pottery, careful-

story that predates Christ.
They are among the last

4,000 years ago.

New federal courthouse will boost economy, officials say


By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
A new federal courthouse
that will be constructed
during the next three years
will be a major step up over
previous courtroom facilities
in Fort Pierce, officials said
last week at a groundbreak-
ing ceremony.
While the federal court-
house is currently housed in
a leased building, previously
it consisted of a courtroom in
the old post office on Orange
Avenue.
"When you wanted to
make copies of the jury
instructions, you had to go
across the street to Butter-
field's (a drug store) and you
got wet copies," said Frederi-
co A. Moreno, chief federal


judge for the southern
district of Florida.
And when plans for the
new courthouse began more
than 20 years ago, former
Fort Pierce Mayor William
Dannahower recalled that a
woman from the U.S.
General Services Administra-
tion arrived and viewed the
courtroom.
Her report "was that it was
the worst courtroom I have
ever seen," Dr. Dannahower
said.
When juries deliberated in
that courtroom, everyone
had to exit the building so no
one could hear the delibera-
tions, he said.
Such will not be the case
for the new $58 million,
123,400-square-foot court-
house to be built at U.S. 1


When completed in about three years, the
courthouse is expected to benefit residents of
Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River counties,
who must now sometimes travel south for
court hearings.


and Orange Avenue.
Construction is expected
to begin in the next several
weeks, and officials said that
alone would provide St. Lucie
County with its own stimu-
lus.
When completed in about
three years, the courthouse is
expected to benefit residents
of Martin, St. Lucie and
Indian River counties, who
must now sometimes travel
south for court hearings.


Dr. Dannahower, who
served as mayor from 1965-
66 and 1984-96, was given a
lot of the credit for the
project. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson,
D-Fla., singled him out for
credit.
Fort Pierce Mayor Bob
Benton presented Dr.
Dannahower with a key to
the city in recognition of his
long, hard efforts on behalf of
the project.
Two other leaders who e


died that received recogni-
tion were former Fort Pierce
Mayor Eddie Enns and I.A.
"Mac" Mascioli, a communi-
ty leader.
Dr. Dannahower chaired a
local task force that worked
to obtain the new federal
courthouse. He recalled that
during the 1980s, he and
others were successful in
getting the courthouse put
on a five-year plan for
funding.
"We didn't know it was
going to be a 22-year plan,"
he said.
While the courthouse is
expected to improve the
economy by bringing more
people downtown and
helping revitalize the west

fy for federal funding as
"entitlement communities,"
but Martin County falls
about 100,000 short of that
mark, according to informa-
tion from the U.S. Census
Bureau.
As a result, the county
must try for a share of Flori-
da's nearly $92 million allo-
cation under the program,
instead of applying directly


to the federal Neighborhood
Stabilization Program. It
qualifies for about $3.5 mil-
lion under the state's alloca-
tion formula.
But a short application
period caught local officials
off guard.
On Feb. 19, the state's
Department of Community
Affairs released the applica-
tion forms, which local offi-
cials say contain more
requirements than its feder-
al counterpart.

surprises," Mr. Oris said.
Chief among them was
the timeline for applying.
Requests for funds have to
reach Tallahassee by April 6.
But first, county staff must
sift through the application
documents to ensure they
craft a proposal that meets
the terms.
"Unfortunately, this pro-
gram was put together in
great haste and its' require-
ments are extremely diffi-
cult to understand," Mr. Oris
said.
A statement from the U.S.
Department of Housing and
Urban Development, which
administers the federal
funds, states that the pro-
gram aims to stabilize
neighborhoods and stem
the decline of house prices.
Florida administrators
called for applications from
local governments looking
to purchase abandoned or
foreclosed houses.
Applicants must be able to
complete renovations where
necessary and sell the prop-
erties at discounted prices
to low-income buyers.
Last year, lenders filed
1,600 foreclosure actions in
the county, according to
court and property records.
Last January alone, they
filed 196 cases, a record for
the county, Mr. Oris said.


An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
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.
r" T


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


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

dealer fee, but because I was
able to eam the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.
Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
I think of myself as the new
"sheriff" that has come to
"clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-


serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.
Sincerely,

History

Indian tribes used animal-
brain fluids in a process that
turned tough deer hides
into a material as wispy as

"There is a very rich,
exciting history about this
people that has not been
widely discussed, because
they didn't leave a written
record," said Lucille Rights,
president of the Southeast
Florida Archaeological Soci-
ety.
That's why the archaeolo-
gy group, and the Children's
Museum of the Treasure
Coast, created the festival,
offered free of charge,
thanks to funding from the
Florida Humanities Coun-
cil, the Frances Langford
Foundation and the St.

The event is set to run
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
the lawn of the children's
museum, 1707 N.E. Indian
River Drive, in Indian River-
side Park, Jensen Beach.
"It's a first here on the east
coast," Ms. Sidoroff said.
"There's nothing like this
from St. Augustine to
Miami."
Participants will have a
view of Mount Elizabeth, a
4,000-year-old mound or
midden, where archaeolo-
gists have uncovered arti-
facts from early American
Indians.
On hand will be Theresa
Schober, principal investi-
gator in the on-going exca-
vations at Mount Elizabeth,
who will provide an update
on recent discoveries at the
site.
Excavators have uncov-
ered ancient bones and sea
shells that provide clues
about the diet, lifestyle and
utensils of the past.
The 30-foot-high mound
is the site of the historic
Leach Mansion, built in the
1930s, and currently under
renovation by county offi-
cials. The construction work
has led officials to close off
the mound to the public.
But visitors to the festival


site will have plenty to look
at, as organizers plan an
event filled with demon-
strations of ancient objects,
and information on bas-
ketry, pottery, flint and shell
tools built by area tribes of
that time.
"It's going to be quite an
interesting, once-in-a-life-
time exhibit, the first of its
kind on the Treasure Coast,"
Ms. Rights said.
Organizers have lined up
a series of experts to partici-
pate in the event. Guest
speakers include Florida's
state archaeologist Ryan
Wheeler, who will unveil the
latest findings about the
Ais, Jobe and Jeaga Indian
tribes. Palm Beach County
archaeologist, Christian
Davenport, is set to join
him, presenting on recent
excavations at Lake Okee-
chobee.
Master craftsman Dick
Workman is scheduled to
give a demonstration on
basketry; Robin Brown is set
to discuss ancient fibers;
and Terry Towell is booked
to make a presentation on
tools created from shells.
"It's a multiple level edu-
cational approach," Ms.

really important for people
to see this."

That month's count was
more than 50 percent higher
than the total for the entire
year of 2004, when county
records showed about 120
foreclosures.
Under the Neighborhood
Stabilization Program,
about $800,000 of the allo-
cation would have to go
toward the purchase of
property to create rental
units.
One idea local officials
must reevaluate is the way
they'd work with nonprofit
agencies on these units.
Staff had planned to seek
out nonprofits to renovate
rental property that the
county would purchase, Mr.
Oris said. The county would
then manage these rental
properties, and work with
the nonprofits to find quali-
fied renters.
However, the newly
unveiled state requirements
call for the property manag-
er to have at least five years'
experience in property
rentals. Martin County can-
not satisfy that requirement,
so officials are considering
an arrangement that would
turn over ownership of the
properties to the nonprofits,
with a stipulation that they
rent only to low-income res-
idents.
But even without the


unexpected state require-
ments, county staff would
still need to scramble in the
next five weeks.
Once they've unraveled
the criteria, they must sub-
mit the draft application to
the county's Community
Development Block Grant
Citizens Advisory Taskforce
for review.
The next step is to present
it for a public hearing before
the board of county com-
missioners, followed by a
15-day period to allow resi-
dents to submit written
comments for considera-
tion.
This means the public
hearing must take place by
March 20 to meet the dead-
line in early April.
County employees hope
to have the application
before the Citizens Advisory
Task Force by March 12 and
to county commissioners by
March 17.
It was unclear at press
time when state officials
would respond to appli-
cants.
One day after a workshop
to sort through the applica-
tion requirements, Mr. Oris
was gearing for marathon
working sessions.
"I know what I will be
doing this weekend," he
said.

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 communi-
cations, 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
catastrophic and lasting
consequences not simply
on the quality of life here,
but in the ability to live life
for thousands of resi-
dents," Mr. Coty said. "This
is a plea. It is a plea to the
community from the com-
munity to save the com-
munity."

Teen
From page Al
A member of a service
group called the Inspire
Club, he spends time with
students with disabilities,
helping with school work
and generally befriending
them.
It's one of a long list of
community service commit-
ments for Jonathan, who
spends his free time as a
junior staff member of the
Boys and Girls Clubs.
He works with younger
students, helping with
homework and being a
mentor. He also volunteers
for the club's promotional
events and participates in
the leadership program at
Jensen Beach High School.


Employees
say the club
has become a
"second
family" for the 1
teen. .
His efforts
led Jonathan to Ashley
emerge as the ie
areawinner of Bilodeau
the Boys and
Girls Clubs' search for the
2009 Youth of the Year.
On Feb. 19, he beat three
other competitors at a
judging event at the club's
Cole-Clark branch in Hobe
Sound, in front of a panel of
judges that included Martin
County superintendent of
schools, Nancy Kline.
Judges considered each
student's leadership skills,
poise and dedication to
community service. During


the contest,
candidates
made a
presentation
and participat-
ed in a live
question-and-
answer session Kayla
on stage.
Before that, Jones
they wrote two
essays on the importance of
higher education and their
reasons for belonging to the
Boys and Girls Clubs.
Vying for the spot were
Ashley Bilodeau, 14, of Palm
City; Kayla Jones, 14, of Hobe
Sound and Kadence Leger,
13, of Port Salerno.
"All of our Youth of theYear
nominees demonstrate
leadership skills and a
dedication to community
service," said Ms.Wentley.


"Jonathan really exemplifies
that. He gives back, and that's
really great to see in a teen."
Jonathan will get the
chance to tell his story, as he
tries to be an inspiration on a
broader level. He will
represent Martin County in
April at the Boys and Girls
Clubs' statewide Youth of the
Year contest in Orlando.
The winner will bring
home scholarships to help
defray college costs.
This would come in handy
for the teen, who wants to
become a radiologist to help
fight cancer. He also dreams
of becoming a special-
education instructor because
he enjoys working with
students with disabilities.
"He's a great role model,"
Ms. Wentley said.

GEMS AND GEMSTONES
There is no generally accepted defini-
tion for the term gem or gemstone, but
they all have something special, some-
thing beautiful about them. Most gem-
stones are minerals (e.g., diamond),
mineral aggregates (e.g., jade) or
more rarely rocks (e.g., lapis lazuli).
Some are organic formations (e.g.,
amber), and other gem materials are
of synthetic origin. For some gem-
stones the source of specialness and
beauty is the color, an unusual optical
phenomenon, or the shine that makes
them stand out in comparison to other
stones. For other stones it is the
hardness or an interesting inclusion
that makes them special. Rarity also
plays a role in the classification as
gemstone. Since the valued charac-
teristics usually come into effect only
through cutting and polishing, gem-
stones are also normally considered to
be the cut stones. Cutting and polish-
ing means refinement of what might be
an otherwise insignificant raw material.
The term semi-precious has generally
fallen out of use because of its deroga-
tory meaning. Formerly, one meant
with this term the less valuable and not
very hard gemstones, which one
opposed to the "precious" stones.
"Precious" and "semi-precious" are
adjectives, however, that cannot be
adequately defined to distinguish
between gems. Imitations are made to
resemble natural or synthetic gem
materials, completely or partially man-
made. They imitate the look, color,
and effect of the original substance,
but they possess neither their chemi-
cal nor their physical characteristics.
To these belong-strictly speaking-also
those synthetic stones that do not
have a counterpart in nature.
However, in the trade these are often
counted as synthetic stones. Synthetic
gemstones are crystallized manmade
products whose physical and chemical
properties for the most part corre-
spond to those of their natural gem-
stone counterparts.

Re: cigar rant

This is in regard to the cigar rant. I have an issue with the edi-
tor's note at the bottom. What gives you the right to voice his
opinion to this one? You should rebut all rants, not just ones
you have personal opinions about.
Editor's note: Since the rant took issue with an advertisement
that appeared in the newspaper we felt it only fair to let the
advertising department/publisher respond. Whenever there's an
issue that calls for a response, Hometown News always contacts
the aggrieved party and gives him/her/them a chance to
respond.
Heartfelt thanks

This is a thank you to the vet tech and the policeman who
pulled over to help a dog that got run over.
We had a couple friends come over to dog-sit our Italian
greyhound while we went out for the night. Unfortunately,
while we were out, he ran out of the house. He didn't know
what to do about the cars, and was hit and killed. Our friends
went looking for him, and in the meantime, a vet tech and
police officer had pulled over. They saw our friends and helped
them locate our dog. The person who hit him never stopped.
We would like to thank the angels out there that were there
for us, also, Heavenly Creatures Pet Cemetery for all their help.
We know this was an accident and we are all devastated. We
loved our pet very much and miss him dearly.

Safety is the reason

This is in response to the ranter who said he or she walked
back and forth to school each day. We sit with our kids at the
bus stops out of concern for their safety. There are bad drivers
and kidnappers. That's why we wait at the bus stops: Taking
care of our kids is the priority.

No need for the fire trucks

This is about the fire department rushing out when some-
body gets sick. There's a fire truck sitting and waiting with the
ambulance, but there's no need for them to be there. If there's a
fire, that's fine, but why sit there when the ambulance can take

Who are you calling a scumbag?

This is in response to the person who wrote "City of scum-
bags." How can you judge an entire city by what you see on the
road?You can't say we are full of illegal aliens and scumbags.
I see you're from NewJersey I'm sure there are plenty of both
up there.

More on scumbag rant
This is in reference of the scumbag article. I'm the president
of a successful company in town. I'm a legal alien and I'd love
to meet the person who wrote that rant. I'd love to take a pic-
ture with him just to say I've had my picture taken with a
dinosaur.
Apparently, he didn't become extinct due to the size of his
brain, like all the other dinosaurs. I guess coming from New
Jersey makes you an expert on scumbags. And he can see an
illegal alien just from driving down the street. That makes him
an immigration officer, too. I'd love to meet this character.

Refuse stimulus money

I noticed that the Republicans voted against the stimulus
package and I'm wondering how many Republicans will
accept some help from the stimulus package. Or will they stick
to their guns and not take any money?

We want the day off, too
The president, the city and the county have the day off
because it's President's Day. Everybody but the working class.
Thanks, Obama.

Electronic payments would be helpful

I read with interest that the city is trying to get the residents
to have their checks electronically deposited into their
accounts. How come we can't pay for our water bill electroni-
cally?
I have stand in line to pay with a credit card, but the mayor
and everybody else is encouraging electronic deposits? It
doesn't make much sense to me.

Long-time readers of
this column know that
like to share with you
health information that is
making news. I subscribe to
these newsletters and find
them a good source of
practical information that I
feel confident in passing

As always, any of this
information is only a
starting point. For specific

doctor.

High-protein meals
may help you burn
fatfaster -

From the UCLA Geffen
School ofMedicine "Healthy
Years" newsletter, Feb. 2009:
Researchers have found
that overweight people who
eat a high-protein breakfast
and lunch are better able to
burn post-meal fat more
efficiently, which may
accelerate weight loss.
Researchers suggest
selecting lower-calorie
protein options, such as
fish, poultry and egg whites
instead of bacon, eggs and
non-lean cuts of beef. They
also suggest eating vegeta-
bles that are lower in
carbohydrates, including
lettuce, leafy greens,


broccoli, cauliflower,
asparagus and bell peppers.
Fruits and whole grains,
such as brown rice, should
also be a part of your meal
plan.
In addition, researchers
suggest adding resistance
training, such as light hand
weights, to build lean
muscle mass, which helps
the body burn fat more
efficiently.
Dietary changes should
be discussed with your
physician, as protein can be
a problem for people with
kidney disease.

Breast cancer
screening important
for older women

From the Mount Sinai
School ofMedicine "Focus
on Healthy Aging," newslet-
ter, Feb. 2009:
As many as 45 percent of
breast cancers are diag-
nosed after age 70, and the
risk doesn't start to decline
until after age 84, but many
women stop having
mammograms because


they think they would have
gotten the disease if they
were going to.
Lauri Margolies, director
of breast imaging at Mount
Sinai Medical Center,
disagrees.
"All women over age 40
should pursue mammogra-
phy. Currently there is no
upper limit for screening,"
she said.

Fight frailty by
maintaining
muscle mass

Also from the Mount Sinai
School ofMedicine "Focus
on Healthy Aging," newslet-
ter, Feb. 2009:
There are steps you can
take to stay strong and
build muscle mass as you
age. Strong muscles help
fight osteoporosis, arthritis
and obesity and help
maintain balance and
prevent falls.
The key to a muscle
workout is resistance. You
can use your own weight, as
when you do a push-up, or
use light hand weights.
Resistance to muscle
contraction is what builds


and maintains muscle
mass.
Doctors recommend
adding resistance training
to a program of cardiovas-
cular exercises for the heart
and lungs, and exercise
such as tai chi or yoga that
helps maintain balance and
promotes relaxation and
proper breathing. You do
not need to do each one
every day, and varying the
program keeps it interest-
ing.
If you're not sure what to
do, a few sessions with a
personal trainer or at
fitness center orYMCA is a
good investment for your
health.

;i A-final note I: recently r'-.
learned that a neighbor has
advanced colon cancer. I
don't know if he had
routine colonoscopies, but
let me use that sad event to
remind you that colono-
scopies save lives by
removing polyps that can
become cancerous or by
detecting cancer at an early,
treatable stage. If you've
been putting it off, don't
delay.

Safety concerns regarding spyware


s spyware safe? That is a
question that everyone
needs to ask before
downloading a piece of free
anti-spy software that
promises the world.
However, how does
someone find out if
something is safe before
installing some piece of
garbage onto her machine?
You could go by a friend's
recommendation.
"Well, so-and-so is
running it and they aren't
having any problems, so it
must be safe." But maybe
your friend's machine is a
wreck and he doesn't know
it yet.
Some install software
assuming it's safe just
based on what the software
promises to do. It's an anti-
spyware program, so it
must be safe, right?
Just because the software
you are about to install
promises to keep you safe
doesn't mean it doesn't
come with its own bit of
nastiness.
Determining if a piece of
software is safe, based on
what the download page
promises, is one way many
people are duped into
installing harmful stuff
onto their machines.
In fact, one of the most
sinister ways spyware


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


authors trick people into
loading their junk is by
throwing a pop-up window
onto the screen warning
users that their "machine is
already infected."
People fall for that all the
time, only to find their
machines infected by
something that they
thought was going to help.
You could spend time
looking at the end-user
license agreement looking
for cryptic clauses saying
things such as, "by clicking
'accept,' you are also
allowing software by our
marketing partners to be
installed."
This is a clause that
should cause an alarm to
go off in your head. Read-
ing the end-user license
agreement is often difficult.
It's a "legalese" document
that can be hard to inter-
pret. Unless you are a
lawyer, you may not catch
the wording where they
trick you into accepting the
"extra" garbage.
You'd be surprised how
many of these programs


get away with it. They know
most people aren't going to
read it, they're just going to
click "accept" and that
gives them all the permis-
sion they need.
Wouldn't it be nice to
have a site to go to where
you could check a piece of
software before you install
it in your machine?
There is such a site and
its list of malicious of "anti"
software is pretty extensive.
One of the first things
you will notice is how many
pieces of bad software are
named in such ways as to
fool users into thinking
they are downloading
something safe rather than
something deceptive.
Fire up the Web browser
and go to www.Spyware-
Warriol:com and then click
the "rogue/suspect anti-
spyware" link.
On that page you will
find an extensive list of
programs that promise to
keep your machine safe,
the domain the software
originates from and
comments as to why that
software made it to the
rogue list.
You will find one reoc-
curring comment and see
that many of these pro-
grams use "false positives
to goad users into purchas-
ing."


In other words, it's
common practice for bad
software to try to trick you
into purchasing something
by telling you that your
machine is infected when it
is not. There ought to be a
law.
One recommendation I
would like to give is to open
your "add/remove pro-
grams" applet in your
Windows control panel and
compare what's installed
on your machine to the
spyware warrior rogue list.
Should you find some-
thing on your machine
that's on that list, remove it.
That's one step I usually
take when trying to clean
an infected machine.
If you've read my column
for any length of time, you
will know that I frequently
recommend AVG Free as an
effective anti-virus (down-
load it at
http://free.grisoft.com) and I
am happy to report that
AVG does not show up on
the spyware warriors rogue
list.
That fact just raises my
confidence level for AVG
one more notch.

Gym targets body, mind with holistic approach


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY It's
not enough to work up a
sweat at Stuart's newest fit-
ness center. Trainers say it's
crucial to tone up the spirit,
too.
That's why Stuart LIFE Fit-
ness Club is taking a holistic
approach to health, focusing
on emotional as well as physi-
cal wellbeing.
On any given week, the gym
offers presentations and
demonstrations on issues as
varied as dental health, detox-
ification, self-esteem build-
ing, prosperity or dealing with
depression.
"This all lends itself to our
designed-for-women brand,"
said owner Gary Mackler.
This focus on women's
health is evident in all aspects
of the club.
Even small details are
important. Its weights have a
special coating, for instance,
so they're gentle on the hands.
"This is just another little
touch," said Colleen Specht,
facility coordinator.
Another touch: paying spe-
cial attention to members'
children to allow mothers to
take some time to exercise.
Its "Mommy and Me" class-


es on Tuesdays and Thursdays
encourage learning and
bonding between mothers
and infants.
Children between ages 10
and 15 can exercise for free,
and younger children can
play in the Kids Zone, which
offers supervised play with
more than 50 games, includ-
ing Nintendo Wii's workout
program.
"Our aim is not just to put
the child in front of the TV and
have them vegetate while the
parents work out," Mr. Mack-
ler said. "We try to get them
moving from young."
For adults, the club offers a
circuit-training system of
timed sessions on a series of
machines.
Participants start on the
first piece of equipment and
move clockwise to various
machines for a full-body
workout in about 20 minutes.
Voice prompts guide them
through each exercise.
"It's the simplest way to
work out that there is," Ms.
Specht said. "It's a complete
routine, and you can still go
home to make dinner."
For members who devote
longer than 20 minutes, the
gym offers a slew of fitness
classes, including spinning or
indoor cycling, yoga, belly

Club, demonstrates a workout routine.


dancing and Pilates, which
focuses on building abdomi-
nal and back strength.
Before a member does the
first stretch or picks up the
first dumbbell, trainers con-
duct a microfit analysis to
measure body fat, blood pres-
sure, strength, flexibility and
cardio-vascular fitness. They
then use that information to
create a personalized work-
out schedule for each mem-
ber.
The gym's programs are a
mix of low-impact and vigor-
ous routines, designed for all
ages and fitness levels.
For members who'd like to
participate but prefer to avoid
group sessions, a virtual


trainer provides one-on-one
routines.
The club also features the
latest strength-training
equipment, suitable for first-
time users and professional
body builders.
"It's a women's club that's
strong enough for guys," Ms.
Specht said.
Stuart LIFE Fitness Club is
located at 2151 S.E. U.S. 1 in
the Stuart CenterNorth plaza.
It opens from 5 a.m. to mid-
night on Mondays to Thurs-
days, 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fri-
days, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on
Saturday and 7a.m. to 7p.m.
on Sunday. For more infor-
mation call (772) 283-1234.

M ost people believe
their surname has
been the same
forever and spelled the
same way, too.
The first thing you learn
in genealogy is that the
spelling of names does not
matter at all. Each member
of the family may spell the
same name differently, and
it may vary from genera-
tion to generation, from
document to document,
and even change in the
same document.
It is not unusual at all to

find a name spelled one
way at the beginning of a
will and differently at the
end.
But as it turns out, at
least for me, a complete
name change may not be
so unusual either!
This month I am going to
tell you about five families
on my chart and what I
have discovered about
each one. I have changed
the names to protect
cousins, in-laws and
anyone else it may con-
cern, since they may not
be able to take this in the
same sense of humor as I
do.
I have run DNA tests on
all of these families. Two of
the five families have
proven to have used the
exact surname since the
17th and 18th centuries.
How do I know? First, I
have a paper trail with
each generation proven
with documented sources.
However, this does not
prove that there might be
some irregularities in the
bloodline, like an adop-
tion, stepchild, etc. This is
where the DNA plays its
part.
I gathered DNA samples
from close male relatives
with the surnames I
wanted checked. Eventual-
ly, we had matches with
other males with the same
surnames. Comparing our
genealogy records, we
found common ancestors
many generations back,
proving our bloodlines
were the same.
In other words, the DNA
from Tom from Florida and
Joe from California
matched each other, and
they both traced back to


GENEALOGY
BRENDA K.
SMITH


Joshua, who lived in 1775.
Therefore, everyone along
the male line will have the
same Y-DNA gene. This is
the way it should work in a
perfect world.
The next two families
have a very different story.
James and John both
showed up in Florida
around 1850, each with no
apparent relatives or
history, and for more than
35 years, no one has been
able to trace. It didn't take
me too long to decide I
probably had the wrong
name, but those family
members carrying that
name weren't interested in
hearing about it.
John was listed on the
census as an ex-convict,
and soon met his demise,
so no one has looked very
far for him. James is a
different character alto-
gether. Family legend says
James came to Florida as a
young boy who ran away
from home. He has a full
name, date and place of
birth.
He became a big fish is a
small pond in his little
town and produced 17
children, which gives us
many descendants. They
all consider his statistics
sacred. Since I don't carry
the name, I seem to be the
only skeptic. If his name is
wrong, chances are the
birth information is wrong.
Once again, let's use the

* Don't believe newspaper
and TV ads.
It never ceases to amaze
me how outrageous and
unbelievable the car
dealers' claims are.
Just when I think that
they can't get any worse, I
see one that tops them all.
One dealer advertised in
the newspaper and on TV
that if you bought one
vehicle from him you got a
second for nothing.
The "facts and fine print"
would reveal that the first
vehicle was a very expen-
sive one with a huge
markup of more than
$6,000 and the second
vehicle was the "use" of a
vehicle for two years: a
lease.
My father always said, "If
it sounds too good to be
true, it probably isn't."
Don't buy a car on
impulse the first day you
start shopping. Can you
believe that this is the way
most people buy cars? It
truly is. There is something
about a new car that excites
people and appeals to them
on an emotional level.

short circuit their logical
thought processes.
Overcome that emotion
that tells you to drive that
shiny new car home right
now. Go home and think
about it. Talk it over with
your spouse and friends.
Research the model of car
you looked at and the price
on the Internet.
Always drive the car you
chose before you sign any
papers. You should take at
least a week or two in the
decision making process
before you buy a car.
Don't trade your old car
into the dealer you buy
from without shopping its
value. Most people have no
idea what their trade-in is
worth when they come in
to buy a new car. They rely
entirely on the appraisal by
the selling dealer. The
dealer can make it appear
that he is giving you a lot of
money for your trade by
taking some of the high
markup on the new car and
showing it as part of the
appraisal value.
Check Kelly Blue Book
kbb.com and Edumnds.com
on the Internet. Get at least
three bids from other
dealers of the same make
for your trade. Make the
purchase of the new car
and the sale of your trade
two separate transactions.
Remember that you do
get a sales tax break by


trading in your car to the
dealer you buy from.
* Don't use the dealer's
financing without checking
with your bank or credit
union. Shop for the best
price on your financing just
like you shop for the best
price on your trade-in and
new your car.
* Don't believe this line:
"This low price is good
today only." This is one of
the favorite ruses used by
car salespeople and
dealers.
In 99 percent of the cases,
you can buy that car for the
same or an even lower
price later. The only time
that you can't is when
factory incentives expire on
a certain date, typically at
the end of the month. If
that is the claim, demand
to see the written factory
incentive by the manufac-
turer.
SDon't fall for, "Make me
a written offer with a
deposit and I will submit it
to my manager."
This is standard operating
procedure at most car
dealerships. This is to get
you psychologically
engaged in the buying
process. Once you have
signed a buyer's order and
written out a check, you
will remain in the dealer-
ship for a while and are
more likely to buy. The
salesman knows that.
Insist on getting their best
price on the car you have
selected. You should never
make the first offer. Once
you have their price,
compare it with at least

sure looks good. How can
you explain to anybody
that you didn't buy it?
* Don't base your pur-
chase on monthly pay-
ments only.
"I'll buy the car if you can
get my monthly payments
below $ X."
Most of us tend to think
in terms of our monthly
budgets. We might feel that
we can afford a new car as
long as it costs us less than
$350 per month, but there
is a big difference between
$350 per month for 36
months and $350 per


surname group.
"Although you have not
matched anyone in our
group, you do have close
matches in the Dunbar
surname project. We
suggest you join their
group."
In other words, you don't
belong to us. John was
from the hills of Tennessee
and could have used his
birth name or changed it,
but somewhere along the
line, and not too far back,
his family was from the
Dunbar bloodline, not the
surname on my chart.
In James' surname
project, it became appar-
ent that all of his DNA
matches had the same last
name, and it wasn't the
one he used. So, once
again, we have changed
surname groups, and
found new relatives. So far,
we have no way of knowing
if James deliberately ran
away and changed his
name, was adopted, given
the wrong name at birth or
if it happened several
generations back.
But in this case, the
name seems to be "Brown"
and not "Black." It seems

COLLECTED
THOUGHTS
No other design element
injects your personality into
your decorating scheme bet-
ter than a collection of items
that you hold dear. With this in
mind, collections should be
displayed to their best effect
in an area of a room where
they can readily be noticed,
examined, and appreciated.
To this end, it is always a good
idea to arrange collections on
shelves (behind glass enclo-
sures, if need be) with ample
amounts of accent lighting.
The setting for any collection
should be selected on the
basis of its relevancy. That is,
while the kitchen is the most
appropriate setting for a col-

can possibly be related to
this strange family with a
different name.
The name change for
case number five is even
closer to home for this
family. The paper trail is
beautiful, and goes back to
the year 1800. There has
only been one little flaw
and that is in the second
generation.
I have never found a
birth certificate for Paul or
a marriage record for his
parents. Not so unusual,
since the state had only
recently created the law
mandating the recording
of births. Paul was proba-
bly born at home and the
record never filed. I didn't
know in which state his
parents were married, but
knew it had to be less than
a year before he was born.
There was a strange
feeling about this family,
but I had found them on
the census as a family
group and even knew Paul
and his siblings. Again, the
only DNA match I've ever
had is with another male
with a different surname.
As I've always preached,
if you wait long enough,
the answer will come to
you. As the Internet grows,
so do the records available,
and one day, up popped
that illusive marriage
record. The parents were
indeed married three years
after the birth of the.child.
After putting all the facts
together, it's obvious Paul
has a different father.
Going back to the DNA
projects, I find many
matches with this other
surname and the two
families all live in the same
vicinity.
So once again, I have a
family with a different
bloodline than the sur-
name they use today.
Who's the daddy? I'll
probably never know, but
then again, if I live long
enough, I'll bet somehow,
someday, the truth will
come out.
I am sending for a new
birth certificate with the
new surname. Who knows?

Courthouse
From page Al
side of the business
district, Dr. Dannahower
said, it will serve a larger
purpose.
"It stands for justice,"
he said.
In the short-term, Sen.
Nelson said, the construc-
tion will bring in more
jobs.
W.G. Mills, a construc-
tion company based in
Sarasota, was selected as
the contractor. Officials
from the company say
they don't know how
many of the jobs will go to
local residents.
Mayor Benton said he
has urged federal officials
to make sure that as many
local workers are hired as
possible.
The project was
delayed in 2007 when
bids came in higher than
expected, Sen. Nelson
said.
"About the only thing
good you can say about
this economic decline, is
that it brought the bids
down," Sen. Nelson said.
Mayor Benton said he
expects the new court-
house will handle more
cases, meaning more
people and more busi-
ness for motels and
restaurants.
He expects some
attorneys to open offices
here once the building is
completed.
Eventually, he said, he
sees the possibility that
county court space will
expand downtown and a
U.S. 1 crossover will be
constructed to help those
who have local and


federal court business.
Mayor Benton and
Sen. Nelson also said
they believe it's likely a
full-time federal judge
will be assigned to the
new courthouse.
"Once it's built, that
need will be here," Mayor
Benton said.
The new courthouse
will have two courtrooms,
one for a magistrate and
one for a district judge,
with room to add two
additional courtrooms, if
needed.
The current leased
facility only has one
courtroom.
Additionally, officials
said, it will have more
security and have room
for the U.S. Marshals
Service, the U.S. Attor-
ney's Office and federal
probation officers.
Jimmy H. Bridgeman,
acting regional adminis-
trator for the General
Services Administration,
pledged the building
would be of the highest
quality.


Changes
From page A7
stabilize financial system, lust a few
months ago, the government did not
intercede to prevent the failure of Lehman
Brothers and other financial services
giants. In recent weeks, though, we've seen
the U.S. Treasury provide massive support
to Citigroup and other major banks. These
efforts should contribute to increased
stability in our financial system.
*Actions by Federal Reserve to increase
flow of credit. The Federal Reserve has
acted aggressively to free up the flow of
credit to consumers and businesses. As a
result of the Fed's moves, inter-bank
lending costs have dropped dramatically
and we've seen an increase in the issuance
of commercial paper, which are unsecured
obligations issued by corporations or
banks to finance their short-term credit
needs.
And, as the Fed has dropped short-term
interest rates to zero, mortgage rates have
begun dropping. If 30-year mortgage rates
fall to the low, 4-percent range, many more
consumers should begin to refinance
existing homes and even purchase new
ones, thus bringing demand back to the
housing market.
SEconomic stimulus package from
Obama administration. President Barack


Obama and the new Congress are poised to
enact a stimulus package, including
spending on infrastructure, aid to individ-
ual states, a middle-class tax cut, aid to
homeowners and other elements. This type
of stimulus could have a large, positive and
immediate impact on the economy.
Possible last stages of recession.
Clearly, we're in the midst of a harsh
recession. But we might be closer to the
end than the beginning. And, in fact, a
majority of economists polled in the well-
respected Blue Chip Economic Indicators
said they expected the recession to end in
the second half of 2009. Of course, even the
official end of the recession wouldn't
necessarily indicate a robust economy, but
it would almost certainly improve the
investment environment.
Attractive stock and bond prices. A long


bear market tends to
drag down the prices of
most stocks, even those
issued by strong compa-
nies whose prospects are
good. Consequently, you
can now find many good
stocks selling for
reasonable prices.
When the market
recovers, these quality
stocks are often the first
to show impressive
gains. And stocks aren't


the only good investmenIlt (ppo)rtlluil\
available, cither.
In recent weeks, bond "spreads" l(hi
difference in yields between trelaslisy IV ir( s
and e bonds issued by other agencies, s'i ch
as municipalities or crororatioIns, have
been wider than we've seen in many
decades. Because bond prices move in lhe
opposite direction to their yields, lhe high
yields offered by municipalities and
companies likely mean these types of
bonds are now priced relatively low.
So the next time you find yourself
shakingyour head over the stock market '
gyrations, try to focus on building an
investment strategy for thIe future, which
may be brighter than you thought.

Opera star


performs at Lyric


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
STUART Soprano
Maria Guleghina is noted
for her interpretation of
the title role in the opera
"Tosca," and admirers
have said that she has
"Verdi flowing through her
veins."
Her affinity for Italian
opera is something of a
surprise, because the
soprano was born in
Odessa, Ukraine, and
made her stage debut at
the State Opera in Minsk.
Now an international
star who has performed
with Luciano Pavarotti and
Placido Domingo, she
comes to the Lyric Theatre
on March 8 as part of the
Ovation Concert Series.
She recently answered
questions about her
career.
Ms. Guleghina wanted to
be a ballerina as a young
child, but she's not sure
when she decided opera
was her passion.
"This is so hard to
answer," she said. "You
cannot ask a fish when did
you discover that you can
swim in water? I guess I
discovered opera when I
started to study music.
When did I discover
music? When my parents
first sang to me."
Ms. Guleghina made her
international debut at La
Scala opposite Pavarotti
and her American debut at

daunting prospect for a
young singer.
"Of course it was an
amazing experience for a
young girl who had just
finished conservatory to
sing with a huge star such
as Luciano Pavarotti," she
said. "In the years that
came, we sang very often
together and I did not see
him anymore as'the star'
but as a wonderful col-
league and friend."
Ms. Guleghina also has a
close relationship with
Placido Domingo, with
whom she has often
performed. They will sing
together again in "Adriana
Lecouvreur" at the Met in
February 2009.
"I adore him not only as a

my mother died.
"I was rehearsing in Los
Angeles, where he is the

was dying. When my
mother died, I did not
want to get out of the

Mr. Domingo convinced
her to come to Los Angeles

Aries-March 21-April 19
Life is going your way. The
key to continuing success is
to listen to and follow your
instincts and heart, not your
head. Your very first impres-
sions are always the best.
Make quality time for your-
self everyday. Do something
for fun just because you
want to. Let others know
what you need. They will
give it to you. Now everyone
is happy.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
New opportunities are
opening up all around you.
How do you know which
ones to pursue? First make a
list. Write them down. Then,
if an opportunity still feels
good in a week.or two, take
action. If it doesn't, it wasn't
meant to be. This approach
keeps you from getting side-
tracked on no-win situa-
tions.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
When you give, you give
freely. Learn to feel in your
heart what others need from
you. You have a great reser-
voir of love and talent to
draw from. Being sensitive
to others' motives keeps you
moving in the right direction.
Sometimes less is more.
Your very first feeling is the
best guide on when to act
and when not to.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Your positive attitude has
brought you safely through
many past challenges. It will
continue to bring you
through present ones. Keep
honing your skills and tal-
ents. Stay sharp. Keep your
mind and great heart open.
See your projects through to
completion and celebrate
the victories. Life is good.
You make it that way.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Continue moving ahead
with those new ideas. You
have plenty of energy. It's
like you have guardian
angels watching over and
guiding you. With the intelli-

around you. You are a win-

life one day at a time. You
have many admirers. Savor
the little victories in life, but
don't become too attached
to any of them. More are on
the way. You are an inspira-
tion to many. You are creat-
ing your own brand of
magic. How? By trusting
your own feelings and
instincts.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
As your spirit rises, so does
your mental and physical
strength. Your thinking is
keen and your overall view
of life is positive. You have
many spiritual blessings.
Just stay focused when
faced with daily challenges
and you will continue to
achieve fine results. Why?
Because you have passion
and you take action.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You have all the right
answers inside you right
now wanting to be

unlimited power to mani-

on the way.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
No matter what has hap-
pened in the past, life
always gives second
chances. Accept the respon-
sibility for all of life's deci-
sions. When one door shuts,
a better one is waiting to be
opened. Keep a lighter
touch. If it isn't fun, don't do
it. Scattered energy has no
way to grow. Keep on keep-

come.

White potatoes are NOT bad!


Hello smart shop-
pers, hope you had
a great week.
This week I'm going to
talk about the lowly potato
and how sad, white
potatoes have gotten such
a bad rap in the past with
the carb nonsense.
Remember, there are
good carbs and bad carbs,
just as there are good fats
and bad fats. Here are
some very interesting
facts.
If your doctor prescribes
you to eat a baked potato,
you'd wonder what his
problem was. A medium-
sized potato with skin
gives you 925 mg. of
potassium to help keep
your blood pressure in
check.
You get 50 mg. of magne-
sium to help reduce your

risk for type 2 diabetes.
You get 5 grams of fiber to
keep your digestive system
running smoothly and
your appetite under
control. We're talking a
medium-sized potato and
you must eat the skin.
What makes a baked
potato a no-no is drowning
it in butter and sour
cream. Use a good-for-you
butter substitute, such as.
Smart Balance and try fat-
free sour cream or a little
reduced-fat sour cream.
If you must add cheese,
try Kraft fat-free grated


cheddar: excellent.
Experts say never
refrigerate potatoes, it
turns the starch into sugar.
Here in Florida, potatoes
grow eyes and rot. The
eyes must be removed as
well as any green under
the skin. For this reason,
I've always refrigerated
potatoes and had no
problem until recently.
I bought 10 pounds of
potatoes for Christmas and
had to refrigerate the extra.
Recently I made parsley
potatoes with the gorgeous
parsley I have in my
garden; the potatoes were
sweet! No, not sweet
potatoes but white ones
that tasted like I had
sprinkled them with sugar!
The solution: if possible,
only buy what you need.
A reader was frustrated


in her search for a recipe
for scalloped potatoes. Too
bad she doesn't have my
cookbook.
Enjoy. See you next
week.

SCALLOPED
POTATOES
Serves 4 to 6
Regular or low fat

Scalloped potatoes have
always been considered a
high-fat food, but that
really isn't so. The original
recipe has a small amount
of butter, considering the
number of servings, and if
you substitute skim milk or
evaporated skim milk for
whole milk, you will have a
wonderful, delicious low-
fat dish.
When you use evaporat-

She feels local churches
and nonprofit organizations
do wonderful things for the

recipe for scalloped
potatoes requires butter.
Because you're using meat,
there is no need to use
butter. The original recipe
called for the chops to be
fried in oil. I brown them
in cooking spray.
Use 2 pork chops per
person, trim off all visible
fat. Brown well, set aside.
Drain any fat.
Follow basic recipe for
scalloped potatoes. Add
the milk to the pan and
scrape up any browned
drippings from the pork
chops. Remove from heat.
Use an ovenproof
casserole with a cover.
Treat with cooking spray.
Layer chops, then
potatoes and onions in
casserole. Sprinkle with
salt, pepper and flour.
Continue layering, ending
with potatoes. Pour on
milk, cover and bake in a
350-degree oven, 1 hour to
1 hour and 15 minutes.
Remove the cover for the
last 15 minutes for brown-
ing.
When using skim milk,
the gravy will break up
slightly. This is fine, it just
means you're eating
something good for you.

TRAVEL



Consider taking a Eurpean river cruise


W th countless rivers
in Europe, it might
be difficult to
decide which river to cruise
first (assuming of course
you will return for another).
The Rhine, which runs from
the Netherlands through
France, Germany and


Switzerland, or the Rhone,
which runs straight through
the south of France?
How about a Tulips and
Windmills cruise? The Rhine
River also offers a trip to
Oberammergau for the
passion play.
Whichever you choose,

fascinating places in a
comfortable, convenient
way. River cruising can get
you up-close-and-personal
to the culture and history of
the region. It is a hassle-free
way of travel. You board,
unpack, relax and enjoy.
Some of the world's
greatest cities can be visited
while on a European river
cruise. Most of the cities and
towns along the rivers were
built because it was neces-
sary for trade, therefore
bringing you closer to the
pulse of the people.
Unlike ocean cruises,
rivers provide easy access to
European city centers. You
spend less time getting
there and more time being
there. Unlike tours, you can
spend the morning relaxing
on board and venture out at
your leisure, whereas a tour
will have you already
packed and on a bus by 7
a.m.
Don't get me wrong, there
is something to be said for
touring, but this column is
about European river
cruising.
Viking River Cruises has
been around for more than
175 years (taking over the


original KD Line) and have
original docking rights in
most European river ports.
This is very important for
river cruising. It means they
are docked right up to the
pier in port.
When other river ships
pull into port (while aVR
vessel is there) their passen-
gers have to walk across one
or more vessels beside the
pier in order to get off the
ship. It is very common to
have two or three riverboats
side by side in port.
Whether they are first in or
not, the Viking River vessel
will be parked right up to
the pier, something to take
into consideration when
making reservations.
Most companies also
include shore excursions in
the fares. Make sure you
choose wisely. As with
everything else, you get
what you pay for. There are
so many itineraries to
choose from.
The Paris and heart of
Normandy cruise, along the
Seine River, is a favorite for
those that are interested in
Word War II history.
Depending on the date, you
may cruise from Paris or on
the reverse from Le Havre.
There are other World War
II history tours that are
more in depth than this but
it is great for those who may
not be able withstand the
rigors of touring. It includes
seven guided tours, all
meals, a welcome cocktail
reception and a captain's
farewell dinner.
Old world highlights
include French cheese
tasting and folkloric
entertainment. The culture

curriculum includes
France's wine regions,
France: the painter's muse,
and Vikings in Europe.
This journey starts at
$2,799 per person/double
occupancy (cruise only).
You may add days in either
Paris or Le Havre, where
you might want to get a
more in-depth tour of
World War II historical sites.
The onboard experiences
are the same on all Viking
River cruises: elegant,
comfortable ships; spacious
accommodations; classic,
gourmet cuisine; consis-
tently excellent service and
deep cultural enrichment. If
air is purchased through
Viking River, you will be
greeted by a Viking River
representative and trans-
ported to you vessel for
embarkation.
Viking River has been
consistently placed high on
the competitive rankings,
such as Conde Nast Travel-
er's Gold List, the Reader's
Choice and Best Small
Ships Awards; and "Travel +
Leisure's" World's Best.
Viking River is featured in
the 2008 edition of "Nation-
al Geographic's" the 10 Best
of Everything. The 'proof' as
they say'is in the pudding!'
The value is truly in the
experience on aViking
River Cruise. Make the most
out of your European
vacation.

IF YOU'RE NOT AT YOUR LAST JOB,



YOUR 401(k)


SHOULDN'T BE EITHER.

Leaving a 401(k) with a previous employer could mean
leaving it alone with no one to watch over it.

At Edward Jones, we can explain options for your 401(k) c
and help you select the one that's best for you. If you'd like
to roll it over into an Edward Jones IRA, we can help you
do it without paying taxes or penalties. So you can feel con-
fident someone is looking out for you and your 401(k).

Athlete lifts herself to next level, attempts another state title


Nicole Teplitz
makes bid for
her third state
title in third
sport.

By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com

JENSEN BEACH Many
sports fans of the past few
decades might remember
being inundated with a
barrage of "Bo Knows"
commercials, a tribute to
former superstar Bo Jack-
son's penchant for excelling
at a variety of different
sports.
While she might not be as
multifaceted as the former
baseball and football
standout, Jensen Beach
athlete Nicole Teplitz can
relate. The senior -- who
has several state champi-
onships to her credit as
part of the Falcons' basket-
ball and volleyball teams -
was going for ring No. 3
recently when she ventured
to New Port Richey for the
Florida High School Athlet-
ic Association's girls
weightlifting finals. It was
Teplitz's first trip to the
state competition after
coming oh-so-close a year
ago.
"I missed qualifying by 5
pounds," Teplitz said. "I
was really so happy that I
qualified (this year) to
make it there."
Although she finished
third at the Section 9 tour-
nament in the 110-pound


weight class missing the
top spot by 10 pounds -
the 18-year-old knew she
was in for a challenge fac-
ing the elite weightlifters
across Florida.
"It was amazing," Teplitz
said. "The girls out there
were so strong. (For) a lot of
those girls weightlifting is
their only sport.
"I didn't have any expec-
tation of winning. I knew it
would be tough.


"She is probably the hardest working athlete
I've ever coached. It's her work ethic that has
helped her get every goal she has achieved."


Mike Sawtelle
girls weightlifting coach

"It was really intense.
"My goal was just to
come in front of someone
else," she said.


Teplitz accomplished
exactly that. Her lifts of 105
pounds in the bench press
and 110 pounds in the


clean and jerk would have
tied her for first at the sec-
tional meet and she actual-
ly bested one of those com-
petitors at the state meet.
"It was the best I ever lift-
ed," Teplitz said. It was a
great experience."
During her time at Jensen
Beach the California native
has built up quite a collec-
tion of highlights. She start-
ed playing basketball her
freshman year and found

triple threat athlete Nicole
Teplitz worked out in the
weight room in an effort to
make a bid for her third
state title in her third sport.

earned a state title with the
school's volleyball and
basketball team.

herself in the midst of a
championship run the fol-
lowing season.
"I was brought up from
junior varsity to varsity,"
Teplitz said. "It was so
exciting."
After losing in the
regional finals in 2005 and
2006, the Falcons made it
to their first Final Four, but
had to face the runner-up

Gearing up for the Honda Classic


t's not every week that
we get to see the best
players in the game
close up. Sure, some of you
have those gigantic 60-inch
high-definition televisions
that allow you to see the
sweat bead up on their
foreheads as they line up a
3-foot putt, but that isn't
quite like being in the same
room.
This week coming up,
March 2-8, is our opportu-
nity to watch the best
talent on the planet play
the sport we so love. I'm
talking about the 2009
Honda Classic at the PGA
National Resort and Spa in
Palm Beach Gardens.
This marks the third year
for the Honda at the
Champions Course at PGA
National. The Champions
Course comes with a rich
history, having hosted a
Ryder Cup, a PGA Champi-
onship and several Senior
PGA Championships.
The Honda has a rich
history of being the tour's
nomadic tournament,
constantly moving from
one venue to another. It
appears to have finally
found a place to call home.


This week coming up, March 2-8, is our
opportunity to watch the best talent on the
planet play the sport we so love.


One thing I know for
certain is that the golf
course will be a stern test
for these guys. I had the
pleasure of playing the
course a few weeks ago and
was pleased to see the
rough growing up very
nicely. The deepest rough,
which is not too far from
the edges of the fairway,
will challenge the game's
top players. Depending on
the lie, you may see players
attempting great shots to
the green or simply
wedging out to the short
stuff.
If the winds stay up, we
could see some higher-
than-normal scores and a
leader board filled with the
best names in the business.
Before the Honda moved
here in 2007, Jack Nicklaus
tweaked his already tough
BearTrap (holes 15-17) to
test the players' mental
and physical skills coming


down the stretch. There
will be no respite this year,
either.
Jack also worked on the
other holes, lengthening
some with new tees. Others
were toughened with
added bunkers guarding
the greens and fairway
landing areas.
Defending champion,
Ernie Els, along with
world's No. 2 player, Sergio
Garcia will be playing.
Camilo Villegas, Tadd
Fujikawa, Kenny Perry and
Davis Love III, will also be
here sharpening their
games for the Masters.
To help expose our next
generation of golfers to the
best players, children
under 15 will be admitted
free for the entire week
when accompanied by an
adult.
The Kids Zones, located
on top of the action at the
17th and 18th greens will


include several activities
for kids throughout the
week.
In my opinion, one of the
best days to go to any tour
event is Tuesday. The pros
are there to practice, play a
few money games among
themselves and even test
out some new equipment
to see if it will make the bag
when the strokes really
count.
Many players will chat
with the galleries on
Tuesday. They are more
likely to give autographs
and are generally much
more relaxed. What I like
best is seeing all the sweet
toys they get to try out.
Nearly every major manu-
facturer and many smaller
ones are on hand to fit
these guys with product. If
one player wants a specific
shaft in a certain head, it

in the cooler water


t is all about the bluefish.
As long as we have this
cool water, they will be
here in good numbers.
Surf anglers casting
spoons and cut bait in the
morning hours will find
plenty. Three- to 5-pound
class fish are the norm, but
as we get into the next few
weeks, the bigger blues will
make a strong showing.
In with them is a mix of
Spanish mackerel. These are
the bait stealers. They have
a smaller mouth and are
able to get your bait and not
the hook. If this is the
problem you are having, go
to a smaller hook and the
mackerels will be yours.
Pompano on sand fleas
and clam strips are in and
out throughout the day. A
long cast will bring best
results.
Whiting like warmer
water, so if they are your
target, wait until afternoon
when the sun warms the
edge. Plenty of big whiting
have made the catch list.

Point south found plenty of
trout. The blue fish have
been eating anything that's
Been put in the water. The
only solution was move to
the next area because the
blues were only a few casts
away.
There were plenty of slot
trout through most of the
day. Red fish were on the
west side of the river from
county line north in some
pretty shallow water.
Anglers, look for activity
in the skinny water, long
cast in the area and be
ready. You will get one shot
- at best two and the
fish will move on. Soft,
rubber baits top the list.
Cast over the fish and move
the baits back to the fish.

Fishing
From page Cl

Offshore was scattered at
best, with boats reporting
catches from 30 feet out to
250 feet. There was no
pattern and lots of reasons
for the fish to be there, they
just weren't there when your
boat was.
I heard two anglers in the
store talking about a weed
line in 200 feet. They called
it the perfect weed line, one
was catching and the other
was fishing; same bait,
same location.
When trolling a weed line,

gets done. Some of the guys
hit the course with far more
than the 14-club limit that
the rules state.
If you go to the Honda
Classic, and it's very easy to
find, bring your best
walking shoes. The course
is relatively flat and there
are numerous spots to set
up a chair, park your
behind for a few hours and
watch the players come to
you.
Behind the first green is
one good spot. Here the
third green, and tees for
number four and nine are
close by allowing you to see
plenty of action without
venturing far.
Atop the hill between the
12th and 15th greens is a
prime spot that fills quickly.
You can watch the
approach shots into 12 and
see the entire par-3 15th,
along with the 13th tee.


slow down and let your bait
swim. Move it slowly into
position and when you get
one on, move away from the
line.
Yes, the mackerels are
thick south of the inlet. The
favored bait is the glass
minnow jig from Gulf
Stream. Not sure why, but
they sure like that jig.
I know this sound may
sound crazy, but when was
the last time you showed
the anglers on your boat
where you kept the life
jackets?

Teplitz
From page C1
both of those years, Bishop
Moore, in the 2007 state
semifinals.
Jensen Beach rallied in
the final minutes of the
game to pull out a 48-43
victory.
In the championship, the
Falcons took on Dunbar
and dominated through-
out, winning 47-33 to cap a
27-4 season. For Teplitz,
the experience was not
only exhilarating, but edu-
cational.


"It showed me what it
took to win (a state cham-
pionship)," she said.
Teplitz brought her new-
found knowledge with her
to the volleyball court later
that year. That Falcons'
squad had their share of
disappointments in the
past as well, but the setter
and her teammates deter-
mined that coming up
short was not an option.
"She is probably the
hardest working athlete
I've ever coached," head
volleyball and girls
weightlifting coach Mike
Sawtelle said. "It's her work


ethic that has helped her
get every goal she has
achieved."
The Falcons navigated
their way through two gru-
eling matches in the Region
4-4A championship and
Class 4A semifinal that
went the distance before
they had their way with
Lemon Bay in the state title
game. Jensen Beach's 25-
14, 25-16, 28-26 victory val-
idated the team's season
and gave Teplitz another
reason to celebrate.
"It was almost expected,"
Teplitz said. "We worked so
hard that season to accom-


plish our goal.
"Everyone wanted it."
With most of her high-
school objectives reached,
Teplitz who also ran
track for four years has
begun to set her sights on
the next level. She is
exploring several opportu-
nities to play volleyball in
college and hopes to make
her decision soon.
"It'll be nice to know so I
can just relax," Teplitz said.
"It just shows that if you
work hard and do your
best, the right things will
come along."
