County Commission
rethinks
noise ordinance


Opponents of a noise
ordinance passed in Feb-
ruary found a sympathetic
ear when they raised con-
cerns with Martin Count)
Commissioners.
Business owners who
offer live music and enter-
tainment called the ordi-
nance restrictive and said
it was cutting into their
sales. .
The rule allows law
enforcement officers to
levy a $500 fine on. any
business with noise loud
enough to be heard at 150
feet away.
But revisiting the issue,
County Commissioners
ordered a public meeting
with business owners, resi-
dents and the Community
Redevelopment Agency to
hear all sides of the issue.
They said the goal was to
find a fair solution for sup-
porters of the ordinance
and business owners, who
complained the measure
was costing them thou-
sands.
"I'm "very excited that
there's a better outlook on
things now,". said Jensen
S Beach- restaurateur Mark
Kren, who said his busi-
ness, Crawdadd\'-s. lost
$6,000 a week when i shut
off its music early to avoid
high fines when the city
quiets down.
He was among about 50
business owners and
members of the county' s
chambers of commerce
who attended the March 31
commission meeting to
raise concernTs.
"We'lTsee if we can come
[ to a happy medium." he
said.
Chamber officials and
county, staff say the\

to take place, within the

New location boosts



business for thrift store


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY On.
U.S. 1, just south of Monterey
Road, the newly- opened thrift
store of the Humane Society of
the Treasure Coast is emerging
as one of the busiest business-
es in the neighborhood.
Two to three cars at a time
wait for their turn to drop off
donations at the thrift store,
which uses its proceeds to care
for and find homes for aban-
doned animals in the county.
Inside, lines of shoppers mill
through the racks and shelves,
perusing a varied inventory
that includes clothes, shoes,
handbags, toys, drapery, furni-
ture and books.
"We have been busier than
ever before," said Terry Piccio-
lo, who manages the Stuart
store. "We're swamped. We're
having record-breaking sales."
: Recent e is up about 20 per-
cent, continuing a trend of
steady growth over the last
.three years.


At its Spring Flnig sale in
March, for ,instance, which
featured a slew of items priced
at $1 sales were up 18 percent
over last ear.
"We did real wpll," Ms. Picci-
.olo said. "Word got around the
community, and once that
happened, [here.were so many
people in here, you couldn't
even get around.'
Volunteers say the new loca-
tion, coupled with a downturn
in the economy,, has made bar-
gain shopping an easy.option
for many residents. They
report seeing new shoppers in
the thrift store every day.
"It's no secret that thrift
stores thrime in this .environ-
menr," Ms. 'Picciolo said.-J
"Twenty dollars; goes a long
way. considering our. average
ticket item is $3."
, Among ''the shoppers is
Valerie kendey, who first
noticed'the store last Decem-
'ber, about a month after it
opened at 2585 Southeast U.S.
1.
On her first yisit, she said


she paid $7 for a black, semi-
formal dress that she wore on
a dinner date and a sundress
for $6. She's since bought a
beaded evening bag for less
than $2.

letter offering a $41.1.000
scholarship is the latest
accomplishment for a Palm
City teen who's owned and
managed her own company
for about five years.
When she first launched
-Sew Preppy, a design com-
pany that produces fashion
accessories, it would be
years before then- 13-.ear-
old Chelsea Dougherty
could di ive.
Today, at 18, she routinely
takes road trips to attend
,trade shows, sales meetings
and make marketing pitch-
es to young women in
Michigan. Nashfille, Mary-
land and Adanta.
"You should be very
proud of your accomplish-.
ments," said the letter from
the New York-based McK-
- elvey Foundation, created.
by Andrew McKelvey,
founder of the job search
Web site, Monster.com.
It's a message that
Chelsea's mother, Lynn
Ridgway, echoes about her
daughter, who maintains a
,;.0 GPA as a senior at Mar-
'in County High School,
heads the student govern-.


meit, is a camp counselor,
donates some of her profits
to fight cancer and volun-
teers with several organiza-
tions.
"That's the thing about
Chelsea," Ms. Ridgway said.
"When she puts her mind
towards something, she'
always does whatever it
takes."
That's the quality in the
teen that most impressed
Stuart business woman,
Tara Biek, owner of adver-
tising agency, Tara Biek Cre-
ative. Chelsea approached
her about five years ago for
help in designing a logo for
Sew Preppy.
"She was very young and
very mature for her age. She
had an agenda, she had
goals," Ms. Biek said. "She's
my youngest client and I'm
really proud of her."
Working out of a bedroom
left vacant when her sister
went to boarding school,
Chelsea runs a business
that, at the height of its suc-
cess, pulled in $35,000 in
2007. The economic down-
turn, plus a shift in the high
school senior's focus to col-
lege entry and scholarships,
took their toll on last year's

COB COINS
One small but fascinating
legacy of the Spanish colo-
nization of the Americas is
the intensive modern-day
interest in Spanish colonial
coinage-the hammered,
hand-struck, cob-style coins
known to us today. By the
1520's, the Spanish crown
.was in charge of an enor-
mous empire requiring
extensive settlement and
systems of control. The two
great imperial subdivisions
(viceroyalties) of New Spain
(Mexico) and El Peru found
themselves charged with
ensuring a steady and copi-
ous flow of gold and silver
from the newly discovered
mines in their regions into
the royal treasuries of the
Spanish mainland. In addi--
tion, they were to convert
much of this wealth into
media of exchange, or royal
coinages. Royal .mints were
founded to control, evaluate,
and tax the gold, and silver
coming from the mines/ as
well as to produce the coins
needed for everyday com-L
mercial transactions. For
'some 250 years, the mints
churned out millions of cob-
style coins, many of which
found their way into the
treasure galleops of the day.
Soon mints such as Mexico
and Potosi became known
as the financial "pillars of
empire," and enabled Spain
to engage in seemingly end-
less wars. Geography,
crown intransigence,
bureaucratic incompetence,
royal intrigues, and outright
scandal all had an impact
on the, mints and their
respective productions.

Just because you have: macular degener-

Stop outsourcing

It is not news when we learn of employee layoffs by Ameri-
can companies using every possible method to cut costs in
order to stay competitive in a very difficult economy.
It is disappointing and startling, however, when we hear that,
IBM is openly admitting it is aggressively shifting jobs from the
U.S. to lower-cost countries, such as India.

A couple of relies

Reply to "No More Donations" from Friday, March 27 issue:
Unfortunately, mailing lists of all kinds are bought and sold,
and charitable'orgarizations are no exception.
My husband and I have had the same unfortunate experi-
ence, and when I say unfortunate, it is because we are immedi-
ately tuti ned off by the repeated solicitations by whomever we
donated to. We then vow to never donate to that group again
because of it.
The huge waste of paper, postage and most'of all, good will,
extended by many of us who have very, very little to give to oth-
ers is sad.
l am along-time volunteer for a local non-profit, and it costs
me nothing except a tfw hours of my time. Combinedwith the
hours other volunteers give to the same nonprofit, our "gift"
reaps huge financial rewards for our beneficiary.
'\ repl\ to "What IsThat?" also from the March 27 issue: That
big, bright star is actually the planetVenus, but by the time this
is answer is printed, Vcnt"' should be much lower and much,
dimmer in the early eveniiig sky
If you want to find out anything planetary, our local college
has a planetarium, and an expert, Jon U. Bell, who can answer
it all. Dr. Bell does a daily broadcast onWQCS 88.9 FM radio at
7:20 a.m. and again at 12:59 p.m. with updates on all "sky hap-
penings" that are visible to us.

Something to think about

Margaret Thatcher, the former prime minister of Great
Britain. said the problem with socialism is that you eventually
run out of somebody elses money. Howtrue.
If this nation is deciding to replace capitalisf'iti social-
ism, it should think twice. Capitalism, based on freedom,
'allowed this country to become the greatest nation on the.
|globe. If we kill capitalism, we kill the golden goose.

:Illegal activities

- There is a dirry little secret the authorities have kept hidden'
for years. However. a high-level case involving President
Obama's aunt, Zeituni Onyango. reveals that she has been liv-
ing in this country illegally for years and that our immigration
service has known about it for years. Even though she has been ,
living at the expense of the taxpayers in public housing for
years, these officials have done nothing to have her return to
Kenya.
As bad as this case is, the real tragedy is that these officials.,
who are supposed to protect law abiding Americans, are not
doing their jobs and, as a result, a huge number of immigrants
remain here illegally.

Congress should take a pay cut

Everyone is so upset about AIG, but why isn't congress., etc.,
giving back their big raises that they gave themselves? They
helped up gel into this mess, and shouldn't have a raise until
they do their job correctly.
How about them being in for only four years, but getting
$15,000 or more towards retirement, but they don't want to
,help the senice men and women that are fighting for our
4 country.
This whole system is wrong. They want to help the illegals
and people in our congress. but don't want to take care of those
,.giving their lives. The automakers shouldn't be entitled to their
benefits. How would they like to stand in those lines for all of
those hours, and put a part on every minute?
I don't think so, especially when they have a cozy office that
they sit their fannies in.

Country music blues

Why can't I find a country music station to listen to on the
radio? It's become frustrating.

MARTIN COUNTY -
Elena Johnson has a taste
for fine things.,
Her 25-year career as an
interior designer helped her
hone her skills for picking
unique objects, and it's that
experience that drives the
co-owner of True Treasures,
a consignment store that
serves Martin County and
South Florida.
Among its inventory are
paintings that fetch thou-
sands, French furniture
priced at $34,000 and items
from the homes of enter-
tainers and a former U.S.
president.
"Those are the expensive
pieces, but we have items
from $10 and up," said Ms.
Johnson, who opened the
store 19 years ago with her
husband, Scacpi. .
* "We take pride m doing
everything at the very best
level,", she said.
Now at age 80, she's taken
over control of the day-to-,

Their niche market, the
couple thought, was in
helping South Floridians
sell their valuables.
Their company special-
izes in antiques. It signs on
to take over the sale of prop-
erty for 50 percent of the
profits.
When True Treasures first
opened its doors nearly two
decades ago, the idea was
fairly new to the Treasure
Coast, Ms. Johnson said.
"Florida is flouti isling

"Everybody's is looking to
get the most for their money,
and in our shops they get
that," Ms. Johnson said.
"Lots of people need to part
with things now for various
reasons, so we're getting lots
of beautiful things come in
all the time."
Among the loyal cus-,
tomers is Paula Roemer, who
came into the stores so often
to shop, that she eventually
landed a job. there about
three years ago.
'"All my girlfriends still all
come in," said Ms, Roemer,
who visited the store about
three times a week to look
first for furniture, then for
knickknacks.
"My whole house is from
True Treasures," she said
with a laugh. "I'm not kid-
ding."
Today she works with


Plus, we will eventually see
the unleashing of all that
pent-up cash seeking higher
returns, and that force should
have a positive impact on the
financial markets.
It may feel comforting to
have a lot of cash on hand.
But if you're going to be
comfortable in the years


ahead, you should consider
putting some of that cash to
work.

prospective sellers, includ-
ing interior designers and
antique dealers, to select
items that she thinks will
interest shoppers.
"It's really an exciting
place," she said.
A few years ago, one of the
clients was an agent for
Canadian singer, Celine
Dion, who wanted to place
several "very opulent pieces"
with the store, Ms. Johnson
Said.
Among the items were two
6-feet bronze sculptures said
to have come from the
singer's home.
A collection of black dolls
and a set containing a
barometer and thermome-
ter that sold in the store


about four years ago came
from the estate of former
U.S. President John Adams,
Ms. Johnson said.
The barometer set alone
fetched $17,000, she said.
The unique, items and,
links to famous clients have
meant brisk business for the
stores.-
"People appreciate the
fact that we' take the best
care of their items. They are
very pleased when they
come in and they see their
objects shown in the best
light possible."

locations in Palm Beach
County. For more informa-

Stewart
From page A7
and what they sold
Hyundai, is like an
insurance policy, but, it's
not an insurance policy.
It's kind of like those
"credit default swaps"
you've been reading
about so much lately.
They should be regulated,
but they are not.
Hyundai, AutoNation,
GM and Chrysler are
paying a "premium" for
the highly unlikely event
that one,of their car
buyers loses her job. This
cost is included in the
price of every car they
sell, even for buyers who
have no concern about
losing their job. Maybe
they're retired. Maybe
they paid cash for the car.
That's just one more thing
that stinks about this
ruse. Every buyer,
whether they need or
want payment protection,
is subsidizing, by the
higher price they pay for
the car, those who think
they need job loss protec-
tion.
There's a lot more
wrong with this deceptive
promise of guarding you
against job loss. Even


though it does not qualify
as an insurance product,
it is underwritten just like
it was. As you hear
repeated so often these
days, "The devil is in the
details."
I went to the General
Motors Web site, which
was advertising their
payment protection plan,
and finally got to the
"devil and his details,"
seven pages of fine print.
It was worse than reading
a.health or life insurance
policy.
This column doesn't
have space for me to-list
and explain all of the
exclusions, qualifications
and other loopholes. I can
best explain it this way.
You have heard the
insurance term "pre-.
existing condition." That
means that if you have a
particular illness, your
health insurance or life
insurance policy does not
cover you.
Well, if you are in
danger of losing your job,
your chances of having
Hyundai, GM or Ford take
care of your car payments
. if you do lose it are slim
and none.
This advertisement is
very similar to the ads
you have seen and heard


that tell you that you can
buy a car, even though
you have bad or no credit.
These ads exploit car
buyers' fears. Oftentimes,
prospective car buyers
have exaggerated nega-
tive feelings about their
credit status.
Even in today's econo-
my, a few people with low
Beacon scores can qualify
with a large down pay-
ment and who are willing
to pay a very high interest
rate. Or, the dealers will
sell the person a cheap
used car for cash down
payment she saved.
* The problem is that for
every person with bad
credit who can buy a car,.
the ads bring in at least 25
more, who are disap-
pointed and embarrassed
when they can't qualify.
A lot of car dealers
won't even show you a car
until they run a credit
check on you. They don't
want to "waste their
time." This kind of
advertising is like casting
a net to catch fish. You
catch lots of fish with
every cast, but only a
small percentage of
"keepers."
In my opinion, this kind
of advertising is uncon-
scionable.

Groaery stores' best sales

know that most people who
use coupons will cut them
and use them the same
week they came in the
newspaper. So, the grocery
store will typically put some
of the coupon products on
l.sale, just not at their lowest
price points. Shoppers will

Play tackles sensitive subject


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
STUART Tom Griffin's
play,."The Boys Next Door"
deals with the sensitive sub-
ject of how those who are
mentally challenged handle
the day-to-day business of
life.
The play, which was suc-
cessful in its off-Broadway
run, has many, comic
moments and it is the direc-
tor's task to let the audience'
laugh at the humor and not
* at the characters..
Francine Beckstead is
directing the Barn Theatre's
production of the play,
which runs from April 17-
May 3 and she spoke recent-
ly about the, nature of the.
play and what it offers to the
audience.
"I don't necessarily like
the term drama/comedy,"
she said. "It's a comedy
absolutely, a drama some-
times, but more important-.
ly, it's a reminder that :the
least among us provide us
with the most shining exam-
ples of the best in all of us.
"It's about coping in a
world where everyone you,
meet is faster, and smarter
and more, capable than
you,",she said.
The story centers around
five men in a group home


and a case worker who
begins to burn out..The
vignettes and stories of their
lives play out over a two-
month period.
The cast consists of
Michael Beecher as Arnold
Wiggins, 'a developmentally
disabled man who works in
a movie theater; Steven
,Dionne as Lucien Smith, a
ean who functions at the
el of a 5-year old; Frank
Quinn as Norman Bulansky,
who, works at a doughnut
shop and has a girlfriend,
Sheila; and Jim Slattery as
Barry Klemper, a young man
with schizophrenia who
pretends to be a golf pro.
Doug Panovi is Jack, the
caseworker and Katie Homrn
is Sheila. :
"Dante Morelli, Sonia
Ortiz, Jerry Badiner, Jorene
Dionne andPeyton Hilford
round out the cast.
"The more I'm with the
characters, (the more) I see
that it's about courage," Ms.
-Beckstead said. "The world'
is going by and they don't
understand most of it. It's all.
.coping."
SMs Beckstead was nerv-
'ous' about portraying the
characters with dignity.
"I-gave the script to a girl-
friend with a developmen-
tally disabled son," she said.
"She got me in touch with

wonderful.

"It is a poignant comedy," she said.
"These men make you laugh, but not

place in it, but revel in their joy and
wonder."

For Easter, two recipes for leg of lamb


Hello smart shoppers.
Easter is coming so
let's learn something
about this special day.
Most people know that
Easter is a joyous Christian
celebration of Jesus Christ's
resurrection. The story of
Easter comes from the Bible
in the New Testament.
Most of us know about
the cross, but what about
the lamb, the Easter bunny
and the colored eggs? How
do they fit into the celebra-
tion, and why? Again, I turn
to my trusty encyclopedia.
The cross represents the
crucifixion of Christ. People
in many parts of the world
make special cakes called
hot cross buns. Each cake
has a cross of icing on its
crust.
The symbol of the lamb
comes from the Jewish
celebration, Passover. Jews
sacrificed the lamb during
the traditional Passover
ceremony. To Christians,
Jesus was the sacrificial
lamb. The Last Supper was

the Passover feast.
Eggs represent new life
that returns to nature
around Easter time (the
spring). The ancient
Egyptians and Persians
often dyed eggs in spring
colors to give as gifts. The
Persians believed the earth
hatched from a giant egg. In
ancient Egypt, the rabbit
symbolized birth and new '
life.
An old German legend
says that a poor woman
dyed some eggs during a
famine, and hid them in a
nest as an Easter gift to her
-children. Just as the children
discovered the nest, a big
rabbit leaped away. The
story spread that the rabbit
had brought the Easter eggs.
, And there you have it.

To my Christian readers,
first remember what you are
celebrating and be sure to
tell your family and friends
all about Easter. "
Blessings to you all; see
you next week.
Lamb is a traditional
Easter dinner. To make
everyone happy in my .
family, I prepare two
different meats. My friend,
Gina Thompson, shared her
Greek brother-in-law's'
recipe for Greek Easter
lamb. It is by far the best
roast lamb I've ever tasted.
After you've selected a leg or
half a leg of lamb, ask the
butcher to bone and tie it if
you prefer it boneless. Be
sure to add several colorful
vegetables from recipes I
have given you in the past.

LEG OF LAMB
Serves 8-10,
This is my original recipe.
7-9 pound whole or half
leg of lamb (boned and
tied)
1 to 2 cloves garlic
Fresh or dried rosemary
Salt and pepper
Mint sauce (optional)


2 tablespoons extra virgin
olive oil
Juice of 2 lemons
1/2-teaspoon salt
1/2-teaspoon pepper
Leg of lamb, about 6
pounds or more
Flour
Potatoes and carrots,
optional '
2 cups beef gravy, either
homemade or canned
In a large skillet, place
chopped vegetables,
oregano and rosemary. Mix
together oil, lemon juice,
salt and pepper; pour over
mixture in skillet. Sautd
until mixture is golden
turning frequently. Remove
mixture from pan and set
aside.
Dredge lamb'with flour .
and brown in remaining oil,
adding more if necessary.
Let meat cool until it can be
handled. Make deep slits in
the meat, stuffing in the
reserved vegetable mixture.
Use the rest on top and
around roast in the roasting
pan. Add water to come gup
to 1-inch. Roast in a pre-. ,
heated 325-degree oven 39
to 40 minutes per pound.:
One hour before it's done,

THE GREAT
COVERUP!
If you are looking to save money
and customize the look of your
furniture at the same time, try
giving your old furniture a face-
lift with new upholstery. This.
option merits consideration if
your furniture has a quality kiln-
dried wood frame that is made
with good construction tech-
niques. Reupholstering is also a
good idea if your present furni-
ture is worn but is perfectly
scaled for the room. Furniture is
worth keeping and restoring, too,
if it has interesting lines that
mark it as a signature piece.
Once the decision is made,
select fabric specifically created
for furniture upholstery,' some-
times called home furnishings or
decorator. fabric: Seize this as an
opportunity to better coordinate
your furnishings.
Whether you want to simply
reupholster one important piece
in your living room or completely
redocorate% ou. entire yacnl, call
me today. I -have more than two
decades of experience creating
beautiful interiors in homes,
offices, and yachts. I specialize

New golf products area hit


Of all the new golf
products that we
media see and test, I
find the new accessories to
be the most intriguing.
Here are a few of my
favorite finds so far this
year.
Being a Florida resident,
I love to get out and play
early in the morning or
evenings after work. One of
the biggest problems is
those times are when the
bugs are most likely to be
out. Thanks to Skeeter
Guard (www.skeeter-
guard.net) golfers may
enjoy an easy and effective
deterrent to those pesky
bugs.
Skeeter Guard is a half-
dollar-sized patch that is
placed on your clothing or
golf bag. This allows you to
move around freely with-
out even knowing you are
using repellent. The
patches are packed indi-
vidually in small airtight,
aluminum packages to
keep them fresh and allow
for convenient portability.
Like most repellants,
Skeeter Guard uses cit-
ronella. Unlike the compe-
tition however, they use
lemon eucalyptus, which is
approved by the Centers
for Disease Control as an
effective natural alterna-
tive to DEET. Each patch is
effective for up to 12 hours.
I put mine on the top of the
shoulder area of my shirt
and it works wonderfully.
Being in a relaxed state is
good for your game and
your health. We can all help
our concentration and


relax by watching our diets.
Unfortunately, not all of us
watch what we eat as well
as we should. This is where
GMP Nutrition (www.gmp-
nutrition.com) steps in.
GMP's latest line of
flavored chews are made
with all-natural ingredients
designed to provide your
body with what it needs to
relax, enhance mental
focus and concentrate. The
ingredients even aid in
muscle recovery. All of
these combine to improve
your golf game.
' I've been taking one
chew a day, combined with
'an extra one when on the
course. I find myself much
less tired at the end of my
round andmy ball-striking
and concentration have
improved. I may have my
kids try these before the
next FCATs.
Our eyes are very impor-
tant organs. It's not only a
great idea to protect them
from the sun, but you can
actually improve your
game with today's latest
sunglasses.
Tifosi Optics (www.tifos-
ioptics.com) is one of the
best for golf-specific
eyewear. The company
features several models, all
with lenses designed to
help you on the golf
course. The proper lens


will help you to better see
the subtle breaks in the
green, and even follow
your ball in the air. With
sunglasses retailing for no.
more than $89 a pair, and
most frames in the $50
range, Tifosi is perhaps the
best bargaining golf.
How often have you
wished that you could
have just worn your golf
shoes to the course or not
had to change them after
your round? Cleatskins'
(www.qleatskins.comn) has
a simple solution for this
quandary.
Cleatskins slip over your
golf shoes and let you
move from the course to'
the street with style and
ease. You no longer need
to carry an extra bag for'
your shoes or waste time
changing them. They also
provide a slip-resistant
sole, allowing you to move
around the clubhouse
without worry and without
damaging carpets or other
flooring.
We'd all like to make
more short putts. One way
to accomplish that is
practice.
With the Big Putt,
(www. thebigputt.com),
golfers can practice those
short putts that are key to
lowering scores.
The Big Putt is 35
percent larger than a
regulation golf ball, but
has the same feel of a
tournament quality ball.
Mis-hits are magnified and
provide immediate -'
feedback. The larger size
promotes a smooth stroke


and requires you to
accelerate through impact.
Once you've practiced
with the Big Putt, the hole
even looks bigger and
easier to sink a regular ball
into.
As Floridians, we all love
to try on the latest fash-
ions that provide cooling
for our bodies. We tend to
ignore our feet when it
comes to keeping them
cool. Now GEOX
(www.geoxusa.com), an
Italian shoe company,
introduces the "NET
System Technology" for
golf shoes.
The technology uses an,
actual net inside the -_ole
of the shoe, along with a
breathable, waterproof
upper, to help keep your

Pompano fishing and the change of the wind


It was all about the wind'
last week. It was coming
from all directions: east,
west and north and that
was'just in one day.-
Offshore was a real mix
up, things looked good at
the inlet, but it got a little
*bumpy farther out. And on


the way out, the wind
changed direction.
Anglers spent their day ..
looking and picking one
here and ,there. There was
no pattern; I would have
planned to fish close. There
were lots of small kings, a .
few peanut dolphin, a sail ,'


or two and Cobia were on
the beach.
Now, if you ignored
everything that you read,
and just went until the
swells spread out at 250
feet, trolling put some nice
dolphin and bigger kings in
the boat. It didn't make any

difference it you were north
or south, as long as it was
deep.
Live bait was a tough
find, and if you did find
some, the snake kings were
there to make easy work of
your rigs.
Trolled Bally-hoo was the
favored bait of the week;
anglers took dinner to the"
fish rather than wait for the
fish to find them.
Surf anglers had pom-
pano, whiting, croakers and
blues all week. The blue
fish were there in the
morning hour, eating cut
bait, chewing on spoons
and fighting with chrome
top water lures. About 10:30
then moved out to the
cooler water.
By mid-morning; the
whiting and croaker moved
in, chewing on shrimp,
squid and small jigs. The
best part was they were all
good size.
The pompano were crazy
all day, eating sand fleas
and clam strips, from sun
up to sun down.
The best part was these
* fish were so close, every


one had a chance to take a
few home. Use a three-
hook rig and mix up the
bait: School fish always
have a few friends with
them, and when one'finds
your bait and starts to
.t huggle, his friends will
* 'ome to see what's going
on. Set the hook on the
other ones. Surf fishing has
been excellent, and as the
:. water warms, it will just get
better.
It wad- a river week on
both the east and the west.
The.tish were there in good
numbers. Trout, reds, blues
and mackerels all made the
catch list. They were taking
both live and artificial
baits: .
Waders, boaters and
bridge anglers all had great
stories and catches to talk
about. '
Snook fishing was
excellent. Most of the fish
were either over the slot or
under it. The trick is to
catch one in the slot.
Pompano were hot from
Sailfish Flats to Round
Island, using small jigs in 3-
feet of water, with a slow

steady retrieve. It put all the
pompano you could want
in the boat:
Most of Friday and all day
Saturday belonged to the
Jensen and Stuart cause-
ways, under the bridge and
on the bridge.
Anglers casting to the
channels caught plenty of
pompano. The best part
was the bait: small jigging
spoons with a pink teaser.
Cast them out, let them go
to the bottom, pick them
up and let them fall. That's
whatbrought in the fish.
Do you know your
pompano limits? Not less
than 11 inches-or more
than 20 inches, only one
more than 20 inches, and
only six per day.

Team has

high hopes

of reaching

state finals
By John MacDonald
Macdonald@hometownnewsol.com
JENSEN BEACH With
most of the baseball squad
from.their district champi-
onship season of a year ago
intact, expectations are high
for Jensen Beach. But how
high the Falcons fly is yet to
be determined.
"We had 15 guys returning
and 11 seniors," head coach
Todd Belowch said. "So far
we're doing very well.
"If we had played poorly it
would be a definite disap-
pointment."
A 7-1 district win over Fort
Pierce Westwood put Jensen
Beach at 10-4 with a 7-2
record in District 14-4A. It
was a complete victory with
dominant pitching and
timely hitting, but even
more important was the Fal-
cons' play in the field.
"The biggest thing (we
need to work on) is not giv-
ing up outs," Be.lowch said.
"Too many innings early in
the season we have given an
opponent four and five outs.
That means extra.pitches for
the pitchers and -extra
opportunities for the hit-
ters."
Steady' glove Work has
always'been a requirement
for the third-year coach.
"Defense wins champi-
onships." Belowch said. "I
try to tell then that"
Making it a little easier for
die Jensen fielders has been
the performance on 'the
mound of Joshua Ziemba.
The senior-has been virtually
untouchable this season.
His four-hit, eight-strikeout
outing against the Panthers
moved the southpaw to 6-0.
Ziemba won again on April
2, as Jensen beat John Car-.
roll 1-0 to up their record to
""He's been lights out,"
..- --Belowwch said. "But then
again, he's been that way
since his freshman year
"HFie controls the tempo of
the game.
In Ziemba's previous out-
ing, a 2-0 win over Okee-.

chobee, the southpaw'
recorded his fourth straight
shutout.
"He's had a lot of success,"
Belowch 'said. "He is never
scared outthere."
Jensen Beach has also
benefitted- from the resur-
gence of Justin Wood at the
plate. The outfielder went 2-
for-3 with a rivo-runi double
in the win over Okeechobee
and was 2-for-4 with a three-
run double and four RBIs in,

"He had an off year last
year," Belowch said. "I think
he was putting too much.
pressure on himself. '
"Now he has a different
mindset and a relaxed.
approach at the plate.
"He's now over .400 and
he's leading the team in

Wood is happy to have
avoided the struggles that
plagued him a year ago.

Beach. Happy hour is from 5-

so you have to fix it quick.
"Luckily this year I've
avoided a slump.".
The last two seasons have
been bittersweet ones for
the Falcons. While the team
captured consecutive dis-
trict titles,, they were tem-
pered with an earlier-than-
expected exit in the regional
playoffs.
Belowch is hoping for a
different otitcome this year,
especially with the state
finals being at Tradition
Field in Port St. Lucie. It
marks the first time it has
been on the east coast since
play was -consolidated at a
central site in 1988.
S"We lost in the regional
semifinals two years in a
row," Belowch said. "Seeing
what our competition in
South Fork and John Carroll
did last year: was nice (for
their program)." ,
While the Bulldogs and
Rams made it to the cham-
pionship game onl\ to lose,
Jensen Beach is aiming to
finish the job.,
"To do it in our own back-
'ard would be special,"
Belowch said. "We have high
expectations every year, but
the competition gets equally
as tough.": "
