Three in race
for Senate seat
Sen. Ken Pruitt's plans for
early retirement in August
led to an immediate race for
his soon-to-be-vacant Sen-
ate seat.
The Republican senator
announced in early May
that he plans to retire on
Aug. 4, with more than one
year left in his term.
The news has led three
candidates 'in as many
weeks to enter the race for
District 28, which includes
Martin County and parts of
Palm Beach, St. Lucie,
Okeechobee and Indian
River counties.
Two Republicans, who
have faced off against each
other in another race, are
vying for the seat.
Rep. Joe Negron, a Stuart
attorney, is set to meet for-
mer rival Art Argenio, the
Fort Pierce resident he
faced for the District 82
state House seat in 1999 and
2000. The pair had a roller-
coaster ride, with Mr. Arge-
nio winning in 1999, but his
competitor emerging as the
state representative the fol-
lowing year.
The Democratic con-
tender is Jensen Beach
mortgage broker .and for-
mer Marine, Bill Ramos,
who has made two unsuc-
cessful bids for the state
SHouse. .
The primary is set for
June 30, and the election is

Huricane fair returns with


new name, broader scope


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY- It's back,
and this year organizers say, the
hurricane fair is even bigger in its
scope.
In addition to the slew of vendors
lined up to help residents prepare
for heavy rain and strong winds,
the Martin County chapter of the
American Red Cross has also
recruited several experts to offer
key health and safety tips.

partner

MARTIN COUNTY -
Insurance salesman Tom
Carluccio hadlong want-
ed to take his 35-foot
Chaparrel into interna-
tional waters on a boat-
ing trip to the Bahamas.
But the Palm City resi-
dent, who has been an
agent in the Stuart office
of the New York Life
Insurance Company for
nearly two decades, had
calculated both the, risks
and costs associated with
the trip.
"I was always interest-
ed in visiting, but never
wanted to do it on my
own," he said.
To make the trip as part
of a group departure,
organized by Bahamas
tourism officials, he'd
have to take his boat to
Fort Lauderdale, the
nearest departure point.
But at about 75 miles
from Palm City, the Fort
Lauderdale dock is fur-
ther away from his home
than Grand Bahama, one
:of more than 700 islands
in the chain making up
the nation just south of
Florida.
Last summer, when gas
cost more than $4 per
gallon, he figured the
additional expense
would be at least $600 for
the return trip.
"You'd have to travel 75
miles south to then. later
travel 65 miles northeast
to get to Grand Bahama
SIsland," he said. "Why do
that?"
That's the same ques-
tion Gary Guertin asked
when he thought up a
proposal to make a Stuart
marina a departure point
for the boating caravans
to the Bahamas.
The general manager
of the Harborage Yacht
,Club and Marina in Stu-
art says the company has
inked a summer deal that
will get boaters traveling
"and give a boost to the
local tourism market.
In the Summer Boating
Flings program, the
Bahamas Ministry of
Tourism will promote the
300-slip marina as a
departure point, reassure
boaters who would be

that we want people to not only
prepare for.the hurricane season,
but learn how to deliver CPR and
what classes are available for their
children to learn how to swim,"
said SamYates, the group's
spokesman.
The fair's new name reflects the
revamped goal for the biggest and
longest running event of its kind in
Florida, organizers say.

Cross and Expert Shutters-Hurri-

"We are includ-
ing a variety of

ness field, but also health and

Undercover busts

MARTIN COfUNTn-
Regular undercover oper-
acions to catch bar- tenders
and shopkeepers who pro-
vide alcohol to minors has
dramatically cut 'sales to:
underage buyers, law
enforcement officers repon.
Whenhe first started con-
ducting stings about seven
years ago, Sgt. Mark Middle-
ton of the Martin County
Sheriff's Office made 40 to
60 arrests annually. The
operations target bars, con-
venience stores and alcohol
vendors, to see whether they
sell'to a decoy working with
law enforcement officers.
Deputies and decoys can-
vass the county at least once
or twice per month, he said.
The effort is paying off,
with business owners and
their staff increasingly com-
plying with the law to sell
only to customers 21 or
older.
The number of violators
has sharply declined in
recent years.
Deputies made eight

arrests during as many
operations county -wide last
year and nine so far this
year, he said.
"For the most part, they're
abiding by the law," Sgt.
Middleton said. "But do we
still have individuals selling
to underage kids?\Yes." '
'Among: them, law
enforcement officers say, are
Wyn Loucke and Nilma
Vipul Vyas, both of whom
face misdemeanor charges
of selling alcohol to a person
under 21.
In both cases, a 17-year-
old working with deputies
purchased alcohol, includ-
ing a 24-oz. beer, from the
clerks in separate incidents.
It was the second arrest for
Mr. Loocke. Neither man
was available for comment
by press time.
The teen had no identifi-
cation and the clerks did not
request any, despite his
youthful appearance.
Under state guidelines,
officers can only work with
teens age 19 or younger,

For Hometown News
When schools need to
alert students about some-
thing, they use the public
* address system.
When cities, counties or
other agencies want to alert
residents, they use radio and
' television.
Now they can also use the
Telephone.
Cities and corporations
have already started using a
new service offered by a
Florida company that allows
messages to be sent to cell
phones or land lines simul-
taneously.
Hometown News has used
it to help with circulation
verification.
BirthCall is the latest offer-
ing under the parent com-
pany GlobalCall Enterprises,
run by Naples resident
ShawnVerne.
The company offers vari-
ous adaptations of a call sys-
tem that generates multiple
simultaneous calls from a
list.
BirthCall allows new par-
ents to record a message
shortly after a baby is born to
let everyone know the good
news.
The BirthCall package,
Which is $14.95, includes a
call list for up to 50 people in,
the U.S. and Canada More
Scan be added for a small fee.
When it is time for the


birth, all parents have to do
is dial in, type in their user
identification information
and the message goes out.
The package includes
caller ID, so recipients know
who the call is coming from,
and it will leave a message
on voicemail or message
machine if they do not pick
up.
Mr. Verne spent the past
two years developing the
concept and this past year,
put'into use.
As his other services
gained popularity, Mr. Verne
was asked about an option
for birth announcements.
He has three boys himself
and knows how hectic it can
be.
"It's a mania-like situation
having a kid," he said.
Although the service was
not available when she had
her baby, new mother Erica
Kirig would have "somewhat
taken advantage of it," she
said.
Ms. King is the reception-
ist in Hometown News' Fort
Pierce office.
"It would've been helpful,
but I was really sick in the
hospital-(from the anesthe-
sia), so I don't think it
would've have mattered
because I couldn't speak to
anyone anyway. If I had
(had) a natural birth that
would've been good," said
Ms. King.

Area hospitals contacted
for comment were not famil-
iar with the product yet. Mar-
tin Memorial Health Systems
was unable to comment "...as
we don't generally make
product endorsements,"
wrote Scott Samples, public
information coordinator for
MMHS.
Indian River Medical Cen-
ter could not really make a
comment either, as they have
not been given a presentation


or used the system, but "over-
all, we think it's an interesting
concept," said spokeswoman
BetsyWhisman.
Companies that have seen
presentation or Are familiar
with it are enthusiastic.
"It's been pretty receptive
so far by companies we've
contacted," said Mr. Verne.
In fact, BirthCall already
has a working relationship
with a company that prints
birth announcements and
that company, as well as oth-
ers, have suggested Mr. Verne
branch into engagement
announcements as well as


job promotions or moves,
which might be offered in the
near future, Mr. Verne said.
For now, parents-to-be can
sign-up for BirthCall or it can
be purchased as a gift.
Users do not have to worry
about clogging up phone
lines, since the system is
designed to do massive
announcements. It can liter-
ally do over 7 million calls
and is very scalable, such as
Google, said Mr. Verne.
As high tech as the actual
system may be, the services
are not. There is no hardware
or software to buy or install.

But those are added

"It gives you and idea of


what it would be like, but
without the danger," Mr.
Yates said.
The idea is to get the
40,000-50,000 attendees
expected at the two-day
event to be mindful of the
potential risk, even though
meteorologists predict a
"normal" season with no
unusually menacing threats
expected.
Attendance to the fair fell
from the record high of
about 100,000 following
Hurricane Frances.
"People tend to be
complacent, but being
complacent can cost you

and we're in major trouble."
The biggest mistake
Daniel Brown has seen in his
16-year stint with the
National Hurricane Center is
some residents' repeated
failure to prepare.
This failure to take
adequate precautions has
featured prominently in his
work training emergency
managers and contributing
to news coverage over the
years.
"The biggest mistake, by
far, is not having their
preparations in place before


June 1," said Mr. Brown,
who's worked as a hurricane
specialist since 1993, and
who's written several of the
national center's official
reports and participated in
its damage surveys.
"It just makes it so much
easier, and takes so much
stress off of you, if you don't"
have to run out and try to
prepare when there's already
a threat," he added.

That's welcomed news for
Mr. Carluccio, who found
himself stranded in the
summer of 2003 and the
boat he traveled on sank
near Walker's Bay.
"'That's scary. That's why
I like going with a group," he
said. "There's safety in num-

But after the woman iden-

is an extended trip to Abaco

Organizers say they

these boaters a commuter

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

it's my voice. So many of
these types of things are
obnoxious, (but) this isn't.
It's easy to use," said Dr.
Ress.
MyCustomerCall,
which allows retailers to
remind a customers about
events or special offers.
MyFanCall, which is
used by entertainers to
send messages to their
fans.
Country singer Amber
Leigh, the first entertainer
to sign up for MyFanCall,
uses (561) 111-1111 as her
caller ID, so her fans all
know the number, wrote
Mr. Verne in an e-mail.
GlobalCallalso has con-
tracts with cities.
For instance, the city of
Lauderdale's recreation
department uses its
OneCallTellAllprogram.
The service is used by
coaches to let parents
know about game cancel-
lations or changes.
SIt has also been used by
Hometown News to notify
newspaper carriers all at
once when papers were
in, rather, than spending
time making numerous
calls.
The phone messaging,
service was started as a
way to spread the word
quicklyin emergency situ-
ations, such as Sept. 11,


said Mr. Verne.
Cities have already
found the service useful in
emergency scenarios,
even though it has only
been around about a year.
Key, West's Police
Department decided to
try it and found it effective
when Hurricane Ike
threatened the area last
September.
David Smith of the pro-
fessional standards divi-
sion of the KeyWest Police
Department was
impressed with the serv-
ice and penned this letter
to Mr.Verne.
'After the storm passed,
the police department
held a debriefing session
to evaluate our perform-
ance during it. The most
resounding comment was
regarding the emergency
notification call system,"
Mr. Smith wrote.
"The EOC commander
for the City of Key West,
the City Manager, Chief of
Police and all of the per-
sonnel I. spoke with
thought the system was
extremely useful and
informative...In our dis-
cussions, it is clear this
system is a valuable tool in
mass communication and
can be used for a variety of
incidents, to include those
that are weather related,'
he wrote.

VIEWPOINT

FRIDAY, MAY 29, 2009 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(772)465-5504
or e-mail news@hometowntewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements offact will be checked for
accuracy.

Don't judge a student by skin color

To the "Illegal Aliens at School" ranter, did you ask them
if they are illegal? Or is it because they have brown skin, so
they must be? Have you not heard of green cards? As far as
closing the borders, your ex-president turned a blind eye
for eight years, so corporate farms and ranches had cheap
labor. Don't blame the new guy, he's trying to clean up all
the mess left by the previous incompetents.

More about illegal students

I would like to tell the person:that wrote about the illegal
aliens in schools: what are they so upset about? If the bor-
ders were closed, their great-great grandparents wouldn't
have been allowed to get into this country. You should have
been with those children who drowned in the water today.
Every child deserves a chance.
Editor's note: These are in response to the rant "Illegal
aliens at school," printed May 15.


Too many lawsuits

A man goes into a bar, gets intouxcated, leaves and drives
his Jeep Wrangler off the road and the crash kills him. Need
proof that we have too many lawsuits? Some unscrupulous
lawyers, denying the man was at fault, havoc filed a wrong-
ful death lawsuit against the owners of the property where
the accident occurred, which is 'quite unbelievable,
because the toxicology report indicates the man's blood
was nearly three times over the legal limit for intoxication:.

Questioning rants

Here are two questions about recent Rants and Raves:
"What are teachers teaching:" Where cah I find the direct
quote from National Bureau of Economic Research? I have
searched, but do not know the exact title of the paper the
writer was referring to.
And illegal aliens running around at school:' How did the
writer know that the children running around were illegal?
While brevity is important, sources and confirmanoni is
more important.
Editor's note: This is in response to "\117at are teachers
teaching?" printed May 8. 2009. The writer didn't give the
specific name of the paper, and there are literally hundreds
of papers on the National Economic Bureau's Web site deal-
ing u'ith education issues. Nor did ae or shie provide us with
information regarding the citizenship status of the students
in question. Hometown News didn't edit the rant for space.
Perhaps the original author i'ill provide the details in ques-
tion?

Give credit when credit's due

When good people do good things, there is all too often
very little recognition for their efforts. When things go
wrong, folks seem to love to comment about how the world
is so bad. This leads us to the magnificent achievements by
Exelon Corporation, which has be able to use advanced
technology to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 35
percent from 2001 levels. 4t considerable expense, the
company has increased energy efficiency in both trans-
mission and distribution systems, and should be applaud-
ed for this very significant achievement.

A view on immigrants

This about the people who died in the ocean who were
trying to get here from another country. I'm.tired of the,
media calling the people on these boats migrants. They are
illegals who are trying to break into our country illegally.
Stop using these names like migrants and undocumented
workers. They are illegal aliens. It means stop trying to
break into our country illegally.

Don't call the kettle black

I've heard a lot of people in this area complaining about
thefillegal.aliens taking our jobs. If you're volunteering at
any company that has laid off Arnerican aren't you doing
Sthe same thing?

Program lets you organize photos for free


Thought this week it
might be nice to cover a
really nifty application
available for free from the
good folks'at Google.
It's called "Picasa" and is
easily downloadable
(without a bunch of
"spyware" to worry about):
Just type
http://picasa.google.com'i
into your Web browsers
address field, hit enter and
click the "download Picasa"
link.
Make a note of the file
name. As I am itping this,
the current version is
"Picasa3-setup.exe," bu't
that could change at
anytime, so be sure to make
a note of it, then save it to
your desktop. ,j
Next, close your browser
window and double click
the Picasa setup file on your
desktop and the prograrn
will run and set up Picasa to
run on your computer.
Click the run button and
accept the end user license
agreement. Then follow.
along and let itdo its thing.
When you click finish.
you will be asked if you
want to completely scan

SEAN MCCARTHY


your computer or only'scan
your documents folder,-
Spictures and your desktop.
Leave the "completely
scan my computer for
pictures" radio button
checked and click contain -
ue.
Sit back and watch as
Picasa searches your entire
computer for pictures,
. listing the folder that they
are stored in and the
showing actual pictures in
thumbnail form.
I found pictures on my
hard drive that were so
buried I forgot I even had
them!
What I like about Picasa
is the way it searches your
entire system for images,
and then organizes them
into one screen. It doesn't
move files around unless
you manually drag and
drop images from folder to
folder from within the.
program), but it does show'


everything at-a-glance,
sorted by most recent at the
top of the list. This is a great
tool for finding lost pictures
on your machine and gives
you a lot more power than
the built-in Windows view
options.
OK, so the program is
great for consolidating your
digital images into one
screen, but what else is it
good for? This may seem
like nrerkill if you have
managed to keep all o.'iir
digital images in one place
(such'as your pictures -. -
folder), but is the program
good for anything else?
:Well, the answer to that is
an enthusiastic yes.
Picasa allows you to do
some basic editing of your
pictures without having to
launch another program.
Double click on one of the
thumbnail images, and the
picture loads into Picasa's
editing screen.
Now, remember, I said
this was a "basic" photo
editor. You won'tbe able to
do some of the advanced
stuff that a more in-depth
editor, such as PhotoShop
or Paint Shop Pro will let
you do, but it's a start.


Picasa will let you "clean
up" a picture in the most
ordinary ways with just a
click of a button.
It will let you remove that
evil "red eye" you get from
flash photography, straight-
en pictures and brighten
dark images. It lets the,
computer take its best shot
at autpmatically.cleaning
up a photo, according to
how it thinks the picture
should look.
tist'click the "I'm feeling
lucky" button, and the
program will adjust the.
picture for the best opi -
Smization. It usually does a
prettygoodjob.
Nothappy with the
results? No problem. Click
.the "undo" .button, and the
picture reverts back to the
wayitwas before.
Picasa also makes
printing a breeze, allowing
you to print multiple sizes
(up to 1,000 percent of the
original, spanned over
several pages), collages and
proof sheets hard copies of
your thumbnail images).
The program will also
allow you to e-mail images

ays toprepare your kids for hurrine season


Tr' hard to believe that we
are talking about hurri
canes again!
While we have had -ome
calm seasons, we have all
learned that we need to
prepare our homes and take
responsibility for ensuring
we have supplies to get us
through, at the veryleast, a
few days without power.
There are many free guides
-for hurricare.preparedness
available, including the one.
Hometown News produces.
for the American Red Cross,
so I thought I wouldfocus on
kids and how hurricanes and
other disasters affect them.
After Hurricane Katrina,
we were all shocked to
discover howvulnerable
children are in a disaster,
both physically and.emo-
Stionally. We were dismayed at
Pictures of parents frantically
searching for children from
whom theywere separated.
SNowis a good time to sew
name tapes in the clothing of
young children, including the
name and number of a
contact person outside of the
area, so if phone service is
disrupted, a family member
or friend can take the call and
know the child is safe.
Michael Haney, division
director for prevention and
intervention in the Florida
Department of Health, offers
suggestions for creating a
family disaster plan and
handling the stress a disaster
such as a hurricane places on


ALIVE
& WELL
SHELLEY KOPPEL


families and children.
Children fear that they will
be separated from their
family or left alone or that
someone will be hurt or
injured. Try to allay fears
while remaining realistic.
"You can never fully
prepare for a natural disaster
and you don't want to instill a
heightened sense of anxiety,"
said Dr. Haney.
"The key is good commu-
nication with your kids. If
you see something on the
news, talk with them about
how they'feel and how they
think others are feeling. Talk
about what you would do if
something happened in your
community and reassure
them that you will do
everything you can to keep
them safe."
The Department of Health
recommends assembling a
kit to pass the time, whether
you evacuate your home or
remain. It could include:
*A few favorite books,
crayons andpaper.
*Puzzles, a board game, a
deck of cards.
*Two favorite small toys,
dolls or action figures or
stuffed anirpals.
*Afavorite blanket and


pillow.
*Photos of familyand pets.
*Other special items that
will be a comfort.
Both the DOH and the
Florida Institute for Family
Involvement, which helps
families with special needs
children, suggest keeping all
of a child's important
information together,
including a photo, birth
certificate, medical and'
immunization record, list of
medications and contact
information.
Perhaps this is something
you and your children can do
together, making a booklet
for each child that they can
decorate and personalize.
Store each one in a water-
proof, zip-locked bag, and
put it with your hurricane kit
so you won't forget to take it.
If your child takes medica-
tion, make sure you have at
least several weeks of
medicine.
It is also a good idea to
limit access to television if
there is bad news being
replayed again and again.
This is true for all sorts of
news and not just hurricanes.
So much of the news is bad;
try to limit viewing, especial-
ly for younger children.
If children or teens see
scenes of death and devasta-
tion, talk to them in an age-
appropriate manner and
watch for symptoms of
depression, such as sleep
disturbance, lack of interest


in activities or substance
abuse.
For school-age children
and teens, suggest some-
thing they can do to help,
such as having a lemonade
stand or a car wash to raise
money for kids in need.
Now is also a good time to
watch for sales on canned
and packaged goods such as
tuna, vegetables, breakfast
bars and evaporated milk or'
long-life milk, such as
Parmalat. Buying a little at a
time, on sale, will help your
budget and help you stay out
of long lines.
If you have an infant or
young child, checkwith your
doctor before a change of
diet. When you finish a
container or soda or juice,
rinse it out well and fill it with
water. Even if you don't use it
for drinking, have supplies
for personal hygiene and
cleaning.
For more information
about hurricane prepared-
ness, visit the Web site of the
Department ofHealth at
www.doh.state.fl.us.
Let's hope we don't need to
use the information in the
near future, but let's be
prepared.

I'll never win a popularity
contest among Florida
car dealers, much less
19 ever get elected as an officer
lit of the Florida Automobile
Dealers Association. Some
of you may have read how
certain car dealers attempt-
ed to band together.in such
a fashion as to exert eco-
Snomic harm onmy busi-
ness. This failed and so will
the latest attempt at making
me go away, a series of
business and personal
lawsuits by Ed Morse.


For those who aren't
regular readers of my blog
and this column, Ed Morse
Honda ran a radio commer-
cial last year accusing me of
deceiving my customers. In
the lawsuit he said that I
"hid my dealer fee" in the
car prices that I quoted to
my customers.
There are few things in
my life more precious to me
than my reputation. This
attack on my integrity left
me no choice but to sue Ed
Morse Honda for slander
and violation of the Unfair
and Deceptive Trade
Practices Act.
My opinion is Ed Morse
got it exactly backwards as


to who is deceiving their
customers. I include all of
my profits and costs in the
prices I give my customers
Ed Morse Honda, on the
other hand, does not.
Like most other car
dealerships on Florida, if
you ask for the price of the
car you get a price excluding
a dealer fee.
The radio commercial he
ran obviously didn't make
me back off on what I
believe to be right. His
counter suit against my
company didn't work,
either. Now, he has filed two
personal lawsuits against
me for defaming Ed Morse
Honda and his lawyers in
my blog. You can access my
'blog at www.EarlStewart-
Toyota.com.
Interestingly, I wrote
another column recently
about my conversation
during a lunch I attended in


Washington, D.C., with Bob
Woodward, the Pulitzer
prize-winning journalist for
theWashington Post. He
said he believed the biggest
threat to the U.S. and the
world was "the media is
failing to fulfill its vital role
to report all of the news and
their opinions fearlessly,
completely, honestly and.
ethically." ,
Think about the courage
it took for Bob Woodward
and Carl Bernstein to break
the Watergate exposdof
corruption in the Nixon-
administration. It was not
only the courage of these
two young reporters, but
also of Post editor, Ben
Bradley and owner,'Kather- .
ine Graham.
Even though I don't get
paid for it, I consider myself
a journalist as well as a car.

dealer. Because I derive my
income from my dealer-
ship, I feel I have even
more credibility and
freedom from economic
influences.
No lawsuits will ever
stop me from freely
expressing my opinion,
especially when it comes
to doing right by Florida
car-buyers. I speak the
truth, not only as I see it,
but also as the vast majori-
ty of car buyers see it.
However, I do have a way
that Ed Morse (and any
other car dealer who
charges a dealer fee) can
stop me. I want an honest,
acceptable answer to this
simple question: why don't
you include your dealer fee
in the price you quote your


customers?
I won't be the judge of
whether your answer is
honest and acceptable;
your customers will.
A third-party, independ-
ently selected research
firm will survey a random-
ly selected, statistically
significant number of your
customers. They will judge
whether your answer to my
question is honest and
acceptable. If a majority of
your customers vote for
you, I will withdraw my
lawsuit, public ally apolo-
gize to you and donate
$100,000 to your favorite
charity.
If your customers don't
agree your reply was
honest aid acceptable, I
will continue my lawsuit
and you must consent to
allow me to public ally
reveal the results of the
survey.

Oldies but goodies: tips for traveling smarter, safer


SA Tith theever-chang-
\/ ig travel industry,
VV there aremore tips
from travelers all over the
world. Some are things we
would never think of, but
most are common sense.
Frequent travelers thankfully
share their thoughts and
ideas. Here are some oldies
but goodies and maybe some
you never thought of.
SChecking through
security. Keep a plastic, zip-
locked bag filled with your
basic liquid toiletries.
Shampoo, conditioner, liquid
soap, lotions, hand sanitizer,
etc., can be pre-packed for all
of your future flights. Using a
slightly larger bag helps when
you add yourlast-minute.
liquids, such asmake-up,
contact solutions and
medications. Carry extra
plastic bags with you.
Carry an empty water
bottle with you, and fill it
after you'get through security.
Fill it at a water bubbler and
bring it on board with you.
Make sure you stay with
your carry-on bag as it goes
through the scanner. Do not
allow it to go through until
you are ready to walk
through.
I cannot say this enough:
check in earl\, for fights. The
lines get longer and longer at
the security checks.
Use TSA-approved locks on
yotr luggage. If your luggage
is chosen to be searched, they
can open it without breaking

it. Great hint: e-mail the
combination to your e-mail
account. If you forget it, just
pull up your e-mail.
SKeeping safe. Keep cash
and valuables on your
persons. For international
travel, make sure you have a
color copy of your passport,
along with your credit card
information in a completely
separate area.
If traveling with a compan-
ion, each of you should have
a copy of the other's informa-
tion. This way, if one has their
stuff stolen, then the other
will have the information.
Make sure you leave a copy
of your exact itinerary with
someone at home. Also when
traveling abroad, be sure to
have all emergency numbers'
with you, i.e., local U.S.
embassy, police, etc., along
with your own personal
emergency contacts in the
event of an emergency.
You may even want to
register with the State
eDepartment online. In the
event ofan emergency, they
will help contactyoi if there
is a family emergency at
home or help your family
find you. They will not give
out information on your

make the call to the credit
card company to cancel your

Buy travel insurance. Just
make sure it covers overseas
emergencies. In an emer-
gency, youwill be so happy
you have it.
If you have an emergency,.
make sure you keep all
receipts and diagnosis
information from the treating

your clothes in your compan-

least you will both have
something to wear. Put shoes
in plastic bags. It keeps your

Letter from the Martin Red Cross executive director


S ave a life. Make a difference.
Empower someone to change the
lives of their friends and neighbors
by giving them valuable CPR and first-
aid skills. Volunteer to help. Learn to
swim. Teach babysitting. Help our
youth become tomorrow's leaders.
Each of these life changing experiences
is possible through the American Red
Cross.
Being prepared and making a differ-
ence is what this special tabloid pro-
duced by Hometown News is all about.
Through the expert articles and infor-
mation in this publication, we have the
ability tb change a life and issue a call
to action to accomplish all of the items
above.
As you read the information in the
Official Red Cross Hometown News
Hurricane Guide, pay close attention to
your evacuation routes and Red Cross
shelters you may need this hurricane
season.
Many of the articles about volunteers
and our response to disasters other
than hurricanes will give you valuable
insight into the work of the American
Red Cross. We are here to provide disas-
ter services, health and safety training,
and communications with our service-
men and women throughout the year,
365 days, 24-hours-a-day.
But, we would not be able to do our


job without your
valuable dona-
tion of time and
dollars. Frankly,
many people are
still not aware
that the Ameri-
can Red Cross
receives no fed-
eral, state or
local tax dollars.
That is why it MARY SAWYER
is critically Executive Director
important that
each of you American Red-Cross
reading this -
publication ask yourself, "What have I
done to help the Red Cross help, my
community, my friends and my neigh-
bors?"
Helping the Red Cross can be as sim-
ple as becoming a volunteer or as valu-
able as becoming a donor. How you
help is your preference. We only ask
that in these very trying economic
times that you help in some way.
We also urge you to help yourself and
your family be better prepared for hur-
ricane season or any emergency by fol-
lowing some very simple steps to be
Red Cross ready:
Make a kit. Purchase or make an
emergency-preparedness kit, with at
least three .days' worth of essential


items needed by each household mem-
ber. Essential items include water (1
gallon per person, per day), nonperish-
able food, a flashlight, a battery- or
crank-operated radio, extra batteries, a
manual can opener, cash and impor-
tant medications. Store items in sturdy,
sealable, easy-to-carry containers.
Remember to check your kit every six


months and replace expired items.
Make a plan. The American Red
Cross recommends creating and prac-
ticing an evacuation and communica-
tions plan. Each person in your house-
hold should know how to reach other
members and where to meet if you

HURRICANE GUIDE '09 Friday, May 29,2009


Get ready for upcoming


huicane season


By Sarah Stover Jacobs
For Hometown News
MARTIN COUNTY -'Always be
prepared" has been the motto of the
Boy Scouts, as well as the Red Cross, for
a long time.
The Martin County chapter of the
American Red Cross works on spread-
ing that motto throughout the year, but
especially stresses it close to hurricane
season, which starts June 1 and ends
Nov. 30.
"Throughout the year, we're concen-
trating on disaster preparedness in all
areas," said Rob Shelt, the chapter's
disaster services director.
The basic advice for hurricane
preparation also applies to other
natural disasters.
The three tenets of the Red Cross are:
1) make a plan, 2) construct a supply kit
and 3) stay informed, he said.
The Red Cross also advises people
about what they should include in their
family's natural disaster kit. It also
offers a variety pf kits for sale on its Web
site, www.redcross.org.


On the site, there is also a link to
OneStorm that focuses on hurricane
preparation and provides lists for kits
and other pertinent information.
One way the Red Cross disseminates
preparedness information to the public
is through volunteers who serve as
community educators. They make
presentations at schools, neighborhood
groups and other organizations or
events.
For example, the chapter hosted its
15th annual Hurricane, Health and
Safety Fair at the Treasure Coast Square
Mall in Jensen Beach on May30 and 31.
"The purpose of the event is to
convene nonprofit,for-profit and
government agencies to provide
information to the public. (Through
the fair) we are looking to educate the
public to reduce their vulnerability to
hurricanes and provide tools to make
them self-sufficient (should one
strike)," said Mr. Shelt.
More than 35 exhibitors were at the
event, and the Red Cross expected

Avoid biggest mistake,

says hunicane center staffer


By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol.com
TREASURE COAST .- Sixteen
years on the job at the National Hur-
ricane Center, and Daniel Brown still
hasn't seen residents commit a big-
ger error than this: failing to prepare
for a hurricane.
"The biggest mistake, by far, is not
having their preparations in place
before June 1,' said Mr. Brown,
who's worked as a hurricane special-
ist since 1993, and who's written
several of the national center's offi-
cial reports and participated in its
damage surveys.
In his, work training emergency
managers and" contributing to news
coverage over the years, residents'
failure to take adequate precautions
has featured prominently.
"It just makes it so much easier,
and takes so much stress off of you,
if you don't have to run out and try


to prepare
when there's
already a
threat," he
said.
His best tip:
have a sound
hurricane
plan in place
by the last-
day of May. Daniel Brown

"Now is a
good time to start thinking about it,"
he said, "the sooner, the better."
Well before authorities issue hur-
ricane or storm watches, residents
should learn the evacuation routes
for their city, as well as the locations
of official shelters.
The best time to decide whether
to stay at a shelter is weeks before a
hurricane strikes, not moments
before it makes landfall, he advised.
Emergency supplies, such as bot-

more than 50,000 area residents to
attend, he said.
Although community educators are
available throughout the year, the
requests pour in as the summer starts,
due in part to media coverage, which
prompts people to start thinking about
hurricanes, he said. ,
"There's also a spike for educators
when Florida is threatened with its first
tropical storm or hurricane," Mr. Shelt
added.
The delay may be due in part to a lax
attitude toward hurricane season as last
year's period was quiet relative to those
of 2004 and 2005.
"Certainly the inactive seasons have
created a feeling of apathy. It's our job
to educate those new to the area and
remind those who have forgotten our
vulnerability to hurricanes," said Mr.
Shelt.
Education is necessary, since there
are uninformed people, and some of
them may not be aware-they live in a
storm surge area, he said.
"The effects of disasters can be
mitigated through safe practice. We try
to make individuals less reliant on
public infrastructure and more reliant


on themselves," said Mr. Shelt,
Community education is only one of
the many volunteer opportunities
offered by the Red Cross, which is
always looking for more helping hands.
Another is serving at a shelter. This
position would be great for people who
either live near the water or in mobile
home parks, since they would probably
need to evacuate anyway, said Mr.
Shelt.
"Nothing more will pass the time in
the shelters than helping your family,
friends and neighbors," he said.
Shelter volunteers usually work in
shifts, if the organization has enough.,
Although the amount of volunteers
needed at each shelter vary by its size,.
ideally there are between 40 and 50
volunteers assisting at each shelter, said
Mr. Shelt, adding that up to 10,000
residents can occupy the nine shelters
in the county.
Allpublic shelters in the area are run
by the Red Cross, with the exception of
the special needs shelter. With nine
public shelters and 40 to 50 volunteers
at each one, that's 450 volunteers, he
said.
While shelters open at the beginning
of the risk period, or when the first
evacuations are. ordered, seeking safety
at any of the public shelters should be a.
last resort, said Mr. Shelt.

People should examine alternative
shelters, which means looking at their
own houses, the possibility of staying
with friends or family, and possibly-
leaving the area, he said.
For those who do come to the
shelters, Mr. Shelt offered some tips.
"They should be prepared with '
bedding, eat before coming, bring
snacks and 1 gallon of water per person
and bring something to entertain
themselves, such as books and games,
especially those with children," he said.
"The shelter is a safe place to stay and
it provides meals. That's all," said Mr.
Shelt.
While the volunteers work in'shifts,
once a storm is near the area, they will
stay until it is over and possibly longer.
If people cannot return to their homes
due to damage, the shelter will stay
open, he said.
In addition, the;Red Cross is speaking
to its major food suppliers for shelters
and caterers for the mobile food
operation, brushing up on agreements
with other organizations or agencies in
the area so we can be part of an overall
emergency response team, Mr. Shelt
said.

"It's not the Taj Mahal; it's not

you have nowhere else to go, the.
shelter is there for you," she said.
Granted, they're not luxurious.
But what they lack in frills and'
amenities, local shelters more
than make up for by providing safe
lodging, food and comfort to
thousands.
"The environment is initially
very chaotic, but it's organized
chaos," said Rob Shelt, the local
chapter's disaster services direc-
tor.
The Red Cross operates nine
public shelters in the county, with
the ability to care for 10,000
residents.
It converts local schools into
emergency housing that accom-
modates between 500 and 3,000
people.
It takes hundreds of workers to
make the operation run smoothly.

"People who seek Red Cross
shelter can expect food, first aid and
a safe place to sleep," Mr. Shelt said.
"The volunteers work very hard to
make sure that we're meeting the
needs of the families there."
It's the small touches that make
the differetice, Ms. McAnallen said.
Participants in the group's youth
program, for instance, entertain
and play games with children at the
shelter to allow parents free time to
unwind.
In his near 10-year stint with the
S:Martin County chapter, Mr. Shelt
has seen the group face major trials.
In 2004, it opened eight shelters,
operating for 21 days after Hurri-
cane Jeanne came ashore. For weeks
after the three hurricanes of that
season made landfall, thousands of
Treasure Coast residents were
unable to return to their homes.
The group staffed the shelters
from the time county-officials
issued the first evacuation orders
until weeks after the hurricanes.
Their shifts initially ranged from 15

"It took an emotional and mental
toll on both the paid staff and
volunteers, but we're trained to
handle disasters," Mr. Shelt said.
"This was an opportunity for us to
respond and meet the eieds of our
area residents."
To help meet that need, the group
is continuously recruiting and
training volunteers.
Administrators recommend that
residents in evacuation zones
considering signing up,
"The service you'd be providing
would help your friends, neighbors
and community, and make the time

Red Cross needs volunteers


for hunicane shelters


By Sarah Stover Jacobs
For Hometown News
MARTIN COUNTY- The only
thing more disastrous than hurri-
cane damage to an area, is not
having enough volunteers to help
those impacted by a storm.
The Martin County chapter of the
American Red Cross is in desperate
need of volunteers for disaster
services as hurricane season looms.
It only has eight full-time staff
members and a little under 1,000
volunteers, said executive director
Mary Sawyer.
. However, the amount of volun-
teers changes each year for various
reasons, such as people moving or
not being able to help anymore.
The chapter just finished its call-in,
which is how it updates the status
of registered volunteers, but results
were not ready at press time.
'It is ideal to have around 350 to
400 as volunteers for disaster
services and each year, the staff
tries to recruit anywhere from


between 100 and 150, said Ms.
Sawyer.
"We need a lot of help, because
when we open these shelters, we
have to take care of hundreds, if not
thousands, of people. People expect
us to be there," she said.
The county has eight shelters,
said Ms. Sawyer.
The organization needs shelter
volunteers, drivers and licensed
mental health professionals and
nurses to offer their time. It also
needs people to help in the after-
math, or recovery stages of hurri-
canes, especially since those who
volunteer for shelter work are
-probably going to be tired and need
a break, said Ms. Sawyer.
The chapter tries to have enough
help so shelter volunteers can work
12-hour shifts, instead of all the
way through, even though they
would not be able to leave the
shelter, she said.
The Red Cross provides free

Staying safe during a storm


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
As a hurricane approaches, there are
often feelings of anxiety and fear. The
American Red Cross reminds you, it is
important to know what to do during
storm watches and warnings, as well as
during and after hurricanes.
When the National Hurricane Center
posts a.watch, there is a possible threat of
a tropical storm or hurricane within 36
hours.
Although it is a watch, it is not too early
to begin taking hurricane precautions.
*Review all hurricane plans. Check
supplies. Continue to watch the
news to stay updated on the storm's -
status.
*Plan ahead. Make a decision early
on where to ride out the storm. -
Remember, a Red Cross shelter is a
shelter of last resort.
*If you plan to board your house with
shutters or plywood, make sure you
have all the appropriate tools you
will need.
*Start installing shutters in difficult
places to reach.
*Fill your cars' gas tanks.
*If you have propane gas service, -
turn off the valve at the tank. With
natural gas, experts recommend
keeping it on, but ask your provider.
*When a hurricane warning is
announced, this means the National
Hurricane Center expects tropical
storm or hurricane conditions in the
area within 24 hours.
*Recheck your lists. Make sure you
have at least the minimum stockpile
of items recommended by your
American Red Cross.
*Make sure your windows, door
openings and garage doors are
covered or braced.
*Reduce the water in your in-ground
pools by 6 to 12-inches. Put extra
chlorine in your pool. Disconnect
and protect your pool pump.
*Make sure all unsecured items
around the outside of the house,
such as tables, chairs, bicycles,
hoses, etc: are put away. These items
can become flying missiles during
the hurricane.
*Clean storm drains and swales of
debris.
*Disconnect propane gas at the tank.
*Get your safe room ready.
*Bring refrigerator and freezer down
to the coldest levels.
*Clean your tub with bleach and
rinse well. Fill with water to be used
for flushing and washing.'
Fill plastic bottles with water and
freeze them.
Charge cell phone batteries.
eLocate water valves, gas valves and
main electric breaker. Have instruc-
tions on how to turn them off.
During the storm, make it your main


concern to stay safe. Do not venture out-
side, even if the raging winds and rain
calm down. After the "eye" of the storm
passes, the weather will get dramatically
worse very fast. The hurricane will be,
over in a few hours. Do not endanger
your life or the lives of others by going
outside.
When inside, stay away from windows
and doors.
If your pets appear agitated, put them
in their carriers.
If the news reports tell you to go to your
safe room, do it. If you see that your
house is suffering, head to your safe
room immediately and place a mattress
over you.
Only use the phones for emergencies.
The time after the storm should be
used for recovery. You should not go out-
side until the news reports tell you it is
safe, and even then proceed with cau-
tion. Attempt to keep your emotions in
check. Seeing things you have worked for
destroyed is overwhelming, but the
important thing to remember is that you
and your family survived.
Remember, the American Red Cross
will be there to. help you following a
storm.
The American Red Cross also reminds
you to:
*Keep children and pets inside a safe,
secure location until you have had
time to examine the damage.
*If damage is severe, find a safe way
to get the rest of the family to a better
location. Call your insurance
company. Take pictures of the
damage, if any. Talk to FEMA.
S*When you venture outside, be
attentive of downed power lines.
*Listen to the news report to find ou
t if it is all right to drink the tap water.
If not, continue drinking
bottled water.
*If your power is out, listen to news
reports on a portable radio to see if
they are reporting major outages.
Call the power agency for updates.
Your power could be out for a several
days. Be patient.
*If you are short of supplies, listen to
the news to find out where these
items will be offered in your area.
Watch for Red Cross emergency
response vehicles coming through
your neighborhood with food and
water.
*If you are using a generator, follow
operating instructions and
precautions.
*Never use outdoor grills inside the
house.
*Realize finding a contractor is going to
be difficult because they are going to be
in high demand. Be careful of scams.
*Be cautious while working around
your house, taking down shutters and
picking up debris.

Four tips for


boarding pets

By Samantha Joseph
Joseph@hometownnewsol. om

MARTIN COUNTY It's not easy
parting with pets during a natural
disaster, but taking the right steps
can help ease anxiety.
Follow these tips from Red Cross
volunteer Ellen McAnallen to take
some of the bite out of the separa-
tion.
Make arrangements in advance.
Most veterinarians will accept
animals for boarding, if owners call
before a hurricane watch is issued.
Put a plan in place today.
*Don't forget medications. You
might not be able to get to the
boarding shelter for a few days, so
leave supplements and other sup-
plies with caretakers.
*Bring your pet's normal food. This
will help avoid digestion problems
associated with suddenly changing
.foods. It's also one fewer change for
your pet during what could be a
stressful time.
*Leave something familiar. Toys or
an article of your clothing will help
comfort your pet while he's away
from home.



Mistake
From page 4
tled- water,. canned f6od, flashlights
and batteries, are best bought well
before they're needed, he added.
"A lot of people wait until the last
minute to buy these supplies, and
then it's just a'mad rush," he said.
Officials from the National Hurri-
cane Center advise residents to clear
rain gutters, trim trees, secure boats
aand review insurance policies before
any hurricane warnings are issued.
For new Florida residents, Mr.
Brown suggests spending a few hours
on a "test run" with the hurricane
shutters. Ensure they work and that
all the installation tools are readily
available.
"Having a plan certainly makes it
much less stressful," he said.
"Knowing what yQu're going to do is
going to make it so much easier when
the event happens."


Responds
From page 13
more than 100 homes.
"We immediatelyresponded with a
Red Cross emergency response vehicle,"
said Rob Shelt, director, disaster services.
"We provided snacks and hydration for
the hundreds of fire and law enforce-
ment personnel on the scene," he added.
The American Red Cross also opened
a Red Cross shelter at the Stuart Recre-
ation Center for those who were forced


Sto evacuate their homes at the height of
the blaze.
"We had about a dozen people show
up at the shelter," said Mr. Shelt
The shelter closed when residents
were able to return to their homes.
"This is avery real example of the
services the Red Cross provides in a local
emergency" Mr. Shelt said.
About 100 meals were served to
emergency crews, evacuees waiting in
their cars in the Baker Road area and
others.


Safe
From page 16
*Keep things in perspective. If your power or A/C is out,
know that it could be stressful. Treat both neighbors and
strangers with respect; this is a tense time for everyone and we


"We are able to respond to emergen-
cies such as this fire, because we have
the solid support of our community," he
said.
If you would like to make sure the
American Red Cross continues to be able
to respond within minutes to local
disasters such as this, contact the Martin
County Chapter to become a volunteer

The time before and after a hurricane is nerve-racking for
everyone. However, there are still precautions and responsibil-
ities to take in order to help secure you and your family's safety.

and recover from a hurricane, contact your nearest American
Red Cross or visitwww.redcross.org.

Turn it in, undergo an interview with
the volunteer department, said Ms.
1 Sawyer.
Once approved, new volunteers go
through anywhere between eight and
16 hours of training, depending on
their interests, she said.
The chapter has ongoing, monthly
training and a schedule is available
on the Web site.
"(Having them trained beforehand)
helps us to pre-position people prior
to the storm, so everyone knows
where they are supposed to go," said
Ms. Sawyer.
In addition to training new volun-
teers, the Red Cross also runs drills
occasionally to keep long-time
volunteers on point.
However, recruiting and training
continue, even after the storm season
has started, Ms. Sawyer said.
In years past, such as 2004, when
hurricanes Frances and Jearne
struck, people showed up at shelter
locations to see if they could help,
and the Red Cross was happy to have
and train them on the spot, she said.
While they will take volunteers at
any time, they need a large pool of
volunteers prior to hurricane season,
-since "the more people we have in
the core, the-better the shelters run,"
said Ms; Sawyer.
SThe Red Cross has had a harder
time recruiting shelter workers since
the active seasons of a few years ago,
said Ms. Sawyer, adding that she has
been with the organization for 30
years and has never had this much
difficulty getting volunteers.
Other chapters throughout the
state are having the same issue, she
said. The difference for the Martin
chapter is that "we have a small
population here. We don't have a
million people to draw from, like
some communities, and nobody is
moving here," she said.
No one reason sticks out, but she
Thinks media coverage .of shelters in
2004 and 2005 may have turned
people off to the idea.
However, she and other members
of the Red Cross try to stress that they
will usually be a't a hurricane shelter
Sfor less than 24 hours. There are'
exceptions to this though, such as
Hurricane Frances, when the storm
stalled for four days, she said.
The current economic situation
may be another reason, she said.
As far as getting volunteer nurses
and mental health professionals,
.1


"(Working at the shelter is
) hard work.They're deal-
ing with a large population
of people. We try to edu-
cate people what to bring,
but if.they don't (bring
what they need to) they
get unhappy."

Mary Sawyer
Executive director
Martin County Red Cross


there are two issues. One is that those
in professional fields are obligated to
their employers and cannot necessar-
ily be there prior to a storm. The
other is, nurses are needed as volun-
teers, but they must be licensed and
many retired nurses are not keeping
their licenses up, said Ms. Sawyer.
Working at a shelter is not for the
faint of heart..
"It's hard work. They're dealing
with a large population of people. We
try to educate people what to bring,
but if they don't (bring what they
need to) they get unhappy," said Ms.
Sawyer: .
'Volunteers need to be flexible,
able to work under pressure, in
conditions that are not what they are
accustomed to," she said.
They also have to be willing to
sleep on the floor and must bring
their own supplies, just like everyone
else.
She thinks more people are pre-
pared than not and they know how
the shelter system works now, versus
years ago, when she was working
with the Red Cross in the 1970s and
they had one hurricane in 12 years.
Although the shelters are there,
people should use them as a last
resort.
"They should try not to come. It's
going to be like camping out. We give
them minimal meals," said Ms.
Sawyer.
One thing the Martin County
chapter does provide now, though, is.
a youth recreation kit, which includes
games and other items to entertain
children. The idea for the kits was
inspired by the large amount of
teenagers who assisted in shelters in
2004. Having a big youth program is a
plus for them.
"They're great because they can
provide recreation and entertain-
ment to the children," said Ms.
Sawyer.

Play is personal story for director


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
STUART For John
Foland, "The Subject was
Roses" is not just a Pulitzer
Prize-winning drama. It is
the story of his life.
He is directing the play,
which runs from June 5-21
at the Barn Theatre, and he
spoke recently about why
the show is personal for
him.
"It takes place in 1946,
the first year after World
War II," he said. "Young
Timmy left to go into the
service a teen and came
out as an adult. That's
what happened to me. I'm
taking history and making
it into an artistic perform-
ance."
The show is the story of
the Cleary family, strug-
gling toope with chang-
ing roles.
"I can relate to it very
strongly, having lived the
,situation," Mr. Foland said.
"The mother still wants
Timmy to be a young child
and the father is amazed
to find out the son has a
mind of his own. Timmy
has a line, 'and you did it
without asking me?' I have
used that line with my own
mother."
The cast includes
veterans Arlette Eulo and
Dante Morelli as the older
Clearys, and newcomer
Jacob Dromerhausen, a
junior at Jensen Beach
High School, as Timmy.
"I contacted the high
schools, and on the last
day of auditions, Jacob
read," Mr. Foland said. "He

each other in the aftermath of World War II in 'The Subject was Roses,' on stage at
the Barn Theatre from June 5-21.


has enthusiasm arid he
wants to learn and grow..
It's a reward for me to work
with him. He has a great
sense of humor, which I
love.
S"Arlette and Dante are
two talented people and
they're helping a neophyte
grow and develop."
Even though Mr. Foland
lived through the period of
the play, Mr. Morelli makes
him aware of the history.
S"There's a part where the
mother saves coins," Mr.
Poland said. "When I came
back from the service, my
mother gave me two
purses filled with coins.
Dante made meaaware that


duringWorld War II,
mothers filled purses with
'coins for optimism and
security."
With a showset in the
afternmath ofWorldWar II,
the Barn has decided to
Dedicate the production to
the military past and
present. All military
personnel are invited to a
free special performance.
on June 4 and should
contact the box office for
information.
Mr. Foland is confident
the theme of families
being separated bywar is
one many can relate to.
"It's a universal theme,"
-he said, "With Iraq, it's


very timely. I'm very close
to this play, and very
excited that I'm able to do
it. It's a rare opportunity. I
lived the history and now
it's a privilege to be able to
Package it in an artistic
form."
The Barn Theatre,
located at 2400 S.E. Ocean
,Blvd, Stuart, presents the
drama, "The Subject was '
Roses"from June 5-21.
Performances are Wednes-

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You .have universal protec-
tion. At the last minute,
when it seems like it may
not work out, a ray of light
comes from your spirit to
light your way and lead you
on to victory in your quest.
Keep your visions strong
and ground your ideas by
writing them down: Now
the universe will go to work
and increase your greatest
desires.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Short- and long-term suc-
cess for you has a lot to do
with feelings. Before start-
ing a new project, check
with your inner guidance. If
it feels like "fun and you
want to do it, proceed for-
ward: If'you are undecided
and feel struggle, don't act.
Using the instincts and
inner guidance insures posi-
tive results, if you are open
and trusting.

Capricorn-Dec.22-Jan. 19
Your life's activities are
speeding up. What used to
take a year to accomplish

months or less because of
your spiritual and universal
growth. No more jumping
around on less important
things. Consult your closest
friends and advisors before
making major decisions.
Major success *is now on
the way.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You'have the fire and desire
to get the job done. This is

discovery of life's greatest
and richest rewards.

You continue to create a
better world for yourself
and others around you. Ybo
have had it in you all along
to do great work like this.

Doyou kn
1-,A after waiting months
. l* for rain, our prayers
1. L were finally
answered this past week.
Maybe now we'll see
some green fairways and
lakes with water in them!
Of course, we'll all lose 50-
yards of roll on our drives
as well (insert sad face
here).
As the rain washed out
.my after-work golf plans
the other day, I wondered
why some courses or holes
ltain well and others do-

NMost golfers don't ever
ink about what is under
e course. Myriad catch
sins and drainage pipes
stalled before the first
ade of grass grew on the
urse is usually of no
ncern.
When the rains do fall.
ever, all work in
ncert with the design of.
e course, to rid each hole
water as quickly as
ssible.
'There are three factors
at affect course
ainage," said Charles
krom, internationally-
cclaimed golf course
%Irchitect, Palm City
president and close friend,
"site, soil and the client."
The first factor, site,
varies from course to
course. Some courses are
located in areas with little
rainfall, strong'drying
.winds and an abundance
of sunshine. These courses
drain well.
SIn Florida, courses are
normally subject to a lot of
rain, and while we do have
strong winds and abun-
kdant sunshine, we suffer
from high humidity. The
;evaporation rate is much
lower than you'd expect.
We also suffer from not
having much elevation
change. Water simply has
,no desire to run anywhere.
Soil content is next. The
greater the amount of
topsoil a course has, the
'better it can handle a am
downpour. Topsoil will
absorb a large amount of
water, and the thicker the
aayer, the more water the
course can handle.
However, it is the sub-
irface soil stratum has
biggest influence on
urse drainage.
'A course with a sandy
surface will have an
cellent absorption rate,"
id Ankrom. "You look at
martin County (Golf Club.).
they have a very sandy
sub-base. That course
stays open when some of
the exclusive private clubs
in our area have to shut
down. That's because it
absorbs water so well."
Courses unlucky enough
to have a hard sub-surface,
such as marl or sandstone,
will need more lakes,
storm drains and collec-
tion areas for the water the

course will shed during a
storm or the wet season.
Probably the biggest
factor aside from nature is
the client.
If the course owner or
developer has the money
and is sensitive to the golf
course, he may be willing
to spend it to design and
build a good drainage
system. If the owner
simply wants an amenity
for his housing develop-
ment, then chances are the
moneywill not be spent
and the course won't drain
well.
If the soilcan absorb 1
inch of rainfall and it rains
2 inches, the ground is
fighting a losing battle. The
high points of the'course
will absorb the first inch
and then the second inch
will flow downhill. As that
water flows to a low point
or a catch basin, it grows
exponentially, adding itself
to the water already
accumulating downhill.
Ankrom, like most,
architects, uses many
more drains now than 15
or 20 years ago. He recent-
ly completed a total ;
renovation atWoodmont
Country Club in Tamarac.
"I added 220 drains to
capture water," he said.
"The original design (circa
early 1970s) had water
running 1,000 feet before
finding a drain. I changed
that. Now it may run 100
feet."
Modern architects also
use nature to help drain
the course. Sand retention
areas and waste areas have
:become quite popular.
Lakes are used to do three
things: disperse water,
shlaimmie~a~liasto re storm
Water.
The fairways and rough
aren't the only places a golf
course architect works to
.drain water from the
course. The greens of a
modern course have a
'complicated drainage
. system built into them, as
well.
Today's modern greens'
topped with 12 inches of
custom topsoil. Under that.
is 4 inches of gravel
followed by a herringlfone
system of drainpipes set 20
feet apart. The water that
makes it to the drainpipes
is taken to a lake, swale,
dry well or other low point,
well away from the green.
Thanks to modern
irrigation, courses are kept
very lush. Unfortunately,
sometimes, very hard rains
follow this irrigation and
simply add too much

of volunteer programs.
Habitat for Humanity of
