. HOW WEIRD
IS THAT?!
SEAN MCCARTHY



Spend any time surfing
the Web and you are
bound to find stories
that are just too bizarre to
be true.
Here's a sampling, edited
for length. And remember,
just because it's online
doesn't mean it's true!
Remember that teen from
last week with the 56 stars
tattooed on her face?
From msnbc.com: Teen
reportedly admits she
asked for tattoos. Dad's
outrage over 56 stars led her
to give false account of
falling asleep.
From sfgate.com: 'High'
wallabies blamed for Aussie
crop circles. Wallabies
snacking in Tasmania's
legally-grown opium poppy
fields are getting "high as a
kite" and hopping around in
circles, trampling the crops,
a state official said.
From trueslant.com/jef-
fkoyen: Duped newscast
airs 'Lost' scene as Flight
447's last moments. In their
rush to air exclusive photos
of Flight 447's destruction,
no one in this newsroom
stopped to ask the logical
questions, such as: how did
the camera survive and why
are the photos in wide-
screen format?
From weirdasianews.com:
9,000-year-old Chinese
beer hits stores. American
brewing company Dogfish
turned to history for their
new brand of beer. The ale
comes from a recipe last
brewed in China more than
9,000 years ago.
From chron.com: Police
say real $5 bills redone as
$100s. Some fake $100 bills
being passed in Amarillo
started as real money. Police
say various merchants
recently have been duped
with about $4,000 worth of
the fake $100 bills.

MARTIN COUNTY -
Riders on a special Mar-
tin County Community

Free July 4

events star

By Samantha Joseph

MARTIN COUNTY -
Martin County residents
won't have to lighten their
wallets to celebrate the
nation's independence,
thanks to two free events
in Stuart and Hobe Sound.
Hobe Sound Bible
Church is hosting a day of
free food, games, chil-
dren's entertainment,
pony rides and fireworks
for residents of that vil-
lage.
"It's a gift to our com-
munity from our church,"
said spokesman Jim
Olsen.
Organizers did a mass
mailing of invitations and
expect about 1,000 atten-
dees at the daylong event
that runs from 11 a.m. to 4
p.m. on Gomez Avenue,
about a quarter mile north
of Bridge Road.
This year's celebration is
the second Independence
Day fete for the church.
Last year, the event drew
about 800 participants.
The church has been a
long-time host of free
community events. It's put
on a major Christmas cel-
ebration for the last
decade, drawing thou-
sands of attendees each
December.
The organization is
partnering with Hope
International Missions
and Hobe Sound Bible
College to sponsor the July
4 event.
"It's like a big family pic-
nic," Mr. Olsen said.
Meanwhile, in the
northern part of the coun-
ty, another celebration is
set at Flagler Park in Stu-
art. That event includes a
4 p.m. concert by Stoney
and House Rockers, fol-
lowed by a performance at
7 p.m. by the Stuart Com-
munity Concert Band.
There is no admission
fee for the celebration that
includes live music,
bounce houses, pony
rides, face painting and
games.
Vendors will be on hand
with food and drinks for
the event sponsored by
John Pierson's Toyota of
Stuart and Stuart Main
Street. The evening
includes a fireworks show,
set to start at about 9 p.m.
and last 30 minutes.

Senate candidates set to


discuss election platforms


By Samantha Joseph

MARTIN COUNTY -
Less than two weeks shy
of their debate in Palm
City, the Democratic and
Republican candidates
for the District 28 state
Senate seat are detailing
the issues at the center of
their campaigns.
Democratic candidate
Bill Ramos and Republi-
can contender Joe
Negron, are set to face off
in a July 16 debate at the
Whispering Sound Club-
house, located at 3645
S.E. Whispering Sound
Drive, Palm City.
For Mr. Ramos, educa-
tion, environmental pro-
tection and strengthen-
ing the local economy


are the central focus.
"My issues are the
issues that have been
affecting our state for
many years, and have
been pushed off," he
said.
For Mr. Negron, fiscal
conservatism, educa-
tion, safeguarding con-
sumers, protecting the
environment and public
safety are top priorities.
"I'm knocking on
thousands of doors and
listening to voters," Mr.
Negron said. "This is
going to be a strong
grassroots campaign."
The men are vying for
the seat that Sen. Ken
Pruitt, R-Port St. Lucie, is
set to vacate on Aug. 4,
one year before the end
of his four-year term.

Teachers

lead pupils

in real-life

research
By Jay Meisel
Meisel@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY-
Some Martin County
teachers are getting help
this summer to prepare
their students to conduct
real-life scientific research.
The goal of the program
at Indian River State Col-
lege in Fort Pierce, is to
entice students to become
scientists by going to col-
lege. And it's in line with
efforts to attract biomed-
ical research companies.
It will give them a "real
application of stuff they've
been sitting in the class-
room learning," said Mindy
Cottrell, a teacher at Clark
Advanced Learning Center
in Stuart.
Ms. Cottrell was among
other Treasure Coast teach-
ers attending the program
at IRSC.
"This is really a great pro-
gram," she said.
Robin Willoughby, an
assistant professor of bio-
logical science at IRSC, said
the program involves sci-
entific research that can be
used in real-life situations.
In this case, teaches are

Ferrari, executive director
of the Hobe Sound Cham-
ber of Commerce.
The tour begins at the
chamber, where several
elected officials, including
the clerk of courts, supervi-
sor of elections and a
Jupiter Island town official
are set to address the
group. County Commis-
sioner Patrick Hayes is also
slated to participate.
The next stop is the Hobe
Sound Community Center,
where the group will meet
officials from the Sheriff's
Office, Hobe Sound Nature
Center and the Jonathan


Dickenson State Park. Then
it's off to the local water
company, the South Martin
Regional Utility, and the
Hobe Sound Post Office,
where staff will allow the
visitors to enter the
employee-only zones and
get an up-close look at the
workings of the postal sys-
tem.
Next, the tour moves to
the Hobe Sound Library,
where the branch manager
makes a presentation to
residents.
Laurel Kelly, the county's
property appraiser, is also
set to provide an update on
the tax rate and answer
questions about property
taxes.
"She gives a really
informative, one-on-one
presentation about what


her office does," Ms. Ferrari
said.
The six-hour tour also
takes residents to the Pine
School and Waste Manage-
ment, before winding up at
around 2 p.m.
"It's a great idea," said
Nina Simms, who's lived in
Hobe Sound for about
three weeks and is consid-
ering taking the tour. "I've
seen a little of the area, but
I've not really had a chance
to get around."
The tour is offered at no
charge, with the Council on
Aging providing trans-
portation. It is open to new
and long-time residents.

Local chefs to participate in Molly's House event


For Hometown News
News@hometownnewsol.com
MARTIN COUNTY -
Local chefs are preparing for
the "pret a manger" event at
Molly's House on July 13.
Molly's House is working
on its third cookbook and
decided to include some
favorite recipes from local
chefs.


Chefs can participate
either by submitting a recipe
or participating in the event,
where they could win the
opportunity to be featured
on one of the prominent
section dividers in the cook-
book. The colorful dividers
will feature the chef and a
photo of the dish.
The recipes will be judged
by Bryan Garner fromWPTV,


Jan Norris, former food edi-
tor the Palm Beach Post and
Amanda Farinos, a food crit-
ic. Judging begins at 4 p.m.
The new cookbook will be
available in November.
At the competition, chefs
will prepare "little plates" for

to conduct research that
would help determine the
cause of mass dolphin
deaths.
Dr. Willoughby said dur-
ing the past several
decades, there have been
numerous instances of large
numbers of dolphins dying
in the area at the same time.
One part of possible
research into dolphin
deaths could involve deter-
mining if waters contain
dangerous compounds.
Marc Giulianotti, director
of chemical operations at
Torrey Pines Institute for
Molecular Studies in Port St.
Lucie, showed the teachers
methods of identifying
compounds in samples of
waters.
He said he hopes the pro-
gram will help teachers
show students that science
is more than reading a
book.
IRSC and Torrey Pines are
partnering in the project.
"If we can expose them to
what we're doing when they
are in high school, hopeful-
ly, that will inspire them to
go to college," he said.
Edwin R. Massey, presi-
dent of IRSC, said inspiring
local students is crucial to
further development of the
area for biomedical
research.
"Developing interest in
biotechnology and under-
standing of the scientific
process plays an important
part in the development of a
skilled workforce for the

nationally recognized
biotechnology firms that
have located in our region,
and will help to attract addi-
tional companies and high-
paying jobs," he said in a
press release.
Other scientists worked
with teachers on analyzing
DNA and testing for toxicity
in live cells. The teachers
will incorporate the
research methods into their
classes, Dr. Willoughby said.
The plan calls for the stu-


dents to spend time at IRSC
and work as teams to ana-
lyze water samples.
Leah Blythe, a teacher at
Indian River Charter School
in Vero Beach, said the pro-
gram at IRSC is good
because it involves all the
basic branches of science.
Students will find that "all
the science they learned
over the years can be
applied in real life," she
said.
The program will take


"students with natural abili-
ties in science and pull
them into it," Ms. Blythe
said.
It's also good for teachers
who have not worked out-
side of the classroom in sci-
ence, she added.
Dawn Chicano, also a
teacher at Indian River
Charter School, said the
research will make science
more fun.
"It's much more fun than
reading science," she said.

CORUNDUM
Two color varieties of corun-
dum are used for making jew-
elry, the red ruby and the sap-
phire which comprises all
other colors. Common corun-
dums, those not of gemstone
quality, serve as cutting and
polishing material. The well-
known polishing material
emery is mainly fine-grain
corundum, to which mag-
netite, hematite, and quartz
are added. The name corun-
dum has its origin in India and
probably referred to ruby.
Ruby is thus named because
of its red color. It was not until
about 1800 that ruby, as well
as sapphire, was recognized
as belonging to the corundum
species. Before that date, red
spinel and the red garnet
were also designated as ruby.
The red color varies within
each individual deposit, so it
is not possible to determine
the source area from the
color. The designations
"Burma ruby" or "Saim ruby"
are therefore strictly erro-
neous, and refer more to
quality than origin. The most
desirable color is the so-
called "pigeon's blood" pure
red with a hint of blue. The
distribution of color is often
uneven, in stripes and spots.
The substance that provides
the color is chromium, and in
the case of brownish tones,
iron is present as well. As a
rough stone, ruby appears
dull and greasy, but when cut,
the luster can approach that
of a diamond. Heat treatment
is commonly used to improve
the color. We have many
pieces of jewelry with ruby in
them and one exceptionally
fine ruby available for viewing
or sale.

where we need it, but let's
not make it the primary
component (of the econo-
my). We need to bring in real
industry," he said.
On his agenda are plans to
manufacture solar panels,
engage in hydrogen
research, develop eco-
tourism and create environ-
mentally friendly or "green"
building standards that
include solar heating and
rain-water collection in new
projects.
His campaign also
includes promises to
remove sales tax exemp-
tions to special-interest
groups, which he said avoid
billions in taxes.
The candidate also ral-
lied against FCAT, the stan-
dardized state test, which
he says costs $300 million a
year, and promised to raise
teachers' salaries to at least
the national average of
$50,000 annually.
For his part, Mr. Negron
would push for the
enforcement of laws to
protect consumers from
fraud. He also has his
record as a former state
representative, who served

The former chairman of
the House Appropriations
Committee in 2005 and
2006, Mr. Negron worked
with former Florida Gov.
Jeb Bush to control govern-
ment spending.
His Web site credits him
with a record of success in
this area, stating, "When
Joe completed his service
in the House, Florida had
over $8 billion in reserves,
more than any other state."
In the House, he also
showed his support for
another priority, proposing
increases for school fund-
ing. He supported the Ever-
glades restoration project
efforts to clean the St. Lucie
River and Indian River
Lagoon, his camp notes.
"I'm strongly opposed to
those freshwater releases
from Lake Okeechobee that
contaminate our rivers and
kill our fish," he said.
Instead, he'd like to see
water from the lake flow
south into land the state
would purchase from U.S.
Sugar.
In the House, his efforts
at ensuring public safety
included overseeing fund-

responsibility, fairness, car-
ing and citizenship.
"Character Counts! estab-

five years ago for workers
who set good examples reg-
ularly," said Holly Laiben,

Too few of the school's
poorest performing students
showed significant improve-
ment in reading and math
over last year's performance
to secure the top grade for
organization, explained dis-
trict spokeswoman Cathy
Brennan.
"These students might
already be proficient, but in a
high-performing district,
they're being pushed to an
even higher standard," she
said.

"Many employees have
strong work ethics and go
above and beyond their job
description on a daily basis,
without expecting or receiv-
ing adequate recognition.
These awards help to fill
that void," she said.
The organization received
22 nominations from a vari-
ety of businesses, schools
and nonprofit agencies.
The winners are: Tanita

schools for their tremendous
efforts throughout the school
year," said Superintendent
Nancy Kline in a statement.
"Our district continues to
rank among the highest per-

Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous

A response: Nobody's perfect

I am responding to a rant titled "Keep Criminals in Jail" in
the June 19 Hometown News.
This rant was obviously written by someone who has
absolutely no contact with anyone with a felony record.
Also, this person is someone who doesn't believe in second
chances.
Not a single person on the face of this earth is perfect. I
am sure this person has made mistakes and has been grant-
ed a second chance.
I am a convicted felon who spent more than five years in
jail for a mistake that I made. When I was released and
returned home, I was amazed at how difficult it would be to
enter society and move on with my life. I would say that
about 95 percent of the companies that I applied for
employment with, all had policies that wouldn't allow them
to hire a convicted felon.
Would I agreed there are people who are in prison who
don't want to change their lifestyles? Yes! However, I know
many, many more who want to change, but because they
are not permitted a second chance, they return to what they
know to survive. It is not the criminals, it is society that
holds them back.
I have written countless letters to Congress about this
issue. It is difficult not to feel that in our own country, felons
are not looked at equally. We have done the time for our
crimes, but even once out, we still, in some way, have to
serve time for something we want to put in the past.
Fortunately, for myself, I had a good support system and a
friend who offered to help. I have been home for two years
now and I currently own two businesses. There is a way out,
but for most, it is extremely difficult.
I used to feel the same way as the writer of that article
until I went into the system myself. Now when I drive by a
jail or prison, I automatically think about each person in
there and what they are currently going through and what it
will be like for them when released.
So please don't be quick to judge. Even other individuals
could have committed the crime spoken of in that rant, as
there is always a first time.

Regarding felons

Years ago, lots of people died just to vote. Now they are
letting felons vote. Why can't felons work? Give them a
chance.

A laughing matter

It makes us laugh when public school teachers brag about
pupil performance and how things are improving in our
classrooms.
Compared with other nations around the globe, the U.S.
comes in almost last in the number of hours our children
spend in the classroom. It shows, because they also score
almost last in math, science and reading.

Raising rates is a big mistake

I just heard that Florida Power & Light wants another rate
increase. I want to say that I very seldom, if ever, write any-
body about subjects such as this.
We already keep our electricity at a bare minimum in
order to keep our bill down. What's next, shutting off the
water heater? People are barely able to stay in their homes
as it is.
As more people leave Florida to go elsewhere because
they are losing their homes (your rate increase will put
many people over the edge) you will have fewer customers
and your revenue will ultimately go down.
Greed never gets us anywhere. It's the people who give
that reap the rewards. Give and you will reap the rewards.
Take away and you will ultimately fail. I am also a home-
based business owner and I give plenty when people are in
need. I do many jobs for free if people cannot pay. For every
job I donate, I get three times the amount from somewhere
else as a reward.
Take this advice; it's good advice. Right now is the time to
give and help. If anything, we should have rate decreases
right now. You can always raise them later when the econo-
my gets better. I know FPL is not starving right now, but
many Floridians are!

The skinny on skin cancer


t's summer in Florida
and the UV index is high.

Now is the time to
remember the sunscreen
and protect yourself against
all forms of skin cancer,
including melanoma, the
most serious.
Here is some information
on the most common types
of skin cancers and what to
look for. The information
comes from the American
Academy of Dermatology.
Actinic keratoses are pre-
cancerous lesions caused
by long-term exposure to
sunlight. They are most
commonly found on the
face, lips, ears, neck, scalp,
forearms and hands, the
areas most exposed to
sunlight. Keratoses are
often scaly, rough and
discolored.
Practice self-examination
and have someone else
check areas, such as your
scalp, that are hard to see.
If untreated, keratoses
can progress to more
serious types of skin cancer,
so any suspicious growth
should be looked at by a
dermatologist.
Basal cell carcinoma is
the most common type of
skin cancer and appears
frequently on the head,
neck and hands, and other
body parts as small, fleshy
bumps or nodules or red
patches. It may take years
for one to grow and if


untreated, it may begin to
bleed, crust over, heal and
begin to grow again. They
can extend below the skin
to nerves and bone and
cause local damage. Any
growths will be removed
and biopsied and treatment
will depend on a variety of
factors.
Squamous cell carcinoma
is the next most common
form of skin cancer. It is
typically found on the rim
of the ear, the face, lips and
mouth. It may also appear
as a bump or red, scaly
patch.
SCC can develop into
large masses and become
invasive and spread to
other parts of the body. It is
important to get early
treatment, when the cure
rate is 95 percent. Most
treatment options are in-
office procedures with a
local anesthesia, which is
minor, compared to the
disfigurement that can
result from ignoring it.
Malignant melanoma is
the most deadly form of
skin cancer. Every year, an
estimated 7,700 people die
from it. In the U.S., the
incidence of people


developing melanoma has
doubled in the past 30
years.
The American Academy
of Dermatology reports the
death rate is declining,
because people are seeking
treatment at an earlier
stage, although the inci-
dence of the disease
continues to rise, especially
in young adults and the
elderly.
Melanoma may appear
suddenly in or near a mole
or other dark spot. Any
changes in moles should be
examined by a dermatolo-
gist. See a dermatologist
immediately if you have a
growth that meets the
ABCD scale:
Asymmetrical: one side
doesn't match the other in
size, shape, color or
thickness.
Border irregularity: the
edges are ragged, scalloped
or poorly defined.
Color: the pigmentation
is not uniform and different
shades are present.
Diameter: most
melanomas are usually
greater then 6 mm, which is
the size of a pencil eraser,
but they can be smaller in
the early stages. That's why
any mole that is different
from the others or changes
should be examined, even if
it is small.
Of course, prevention is
the best plan. Use a broad-
spectrum sunscreen of at


least SPF 15, one that
protects against UVA and
UVB rays. Re-apply it often
and use it on your lips, ears
and other exposed areas,
even on cloudy days.
Avoid tanning salons and
tanning beds. There is no
safe way to tan, except with
artificial tanning products.
If you're going to be out
in the sun, wear a hat and
sunglasses, preferably the
wrap-around type that
protect the side of your
face, as well. Pretend you're
a movie star; they wear
sunglasses all the time.

Dermatology Web site at

Don't panic if your computer crashes


Computers can get
overwhelmed from
time to time.
I'm not saying that
computers can be over-
whelming, they can, but
that's not what this week's
column is about.
What I'm referring to are
the times when, for no
apparent reason, the
computer just stops
functioning and you can't
seem to do anything.
What most people don't
realize is just how much
stuff is going on in the
background at any given
time.
Every part of the comput-
er, from the keyboard to the
mouse to the monitor, has a
little program running in
the background that is in
charge of how that particu-
lar part functions. And they
all have to run together
harmoniously.
I'm not talking about just
a few little programs or
drivers. There are literally
thousands of things going
on in the background at any
given second and some-
times the operating system
can get overwhelmed.
Frankly, I'm surprised
computers even run at all
without crashing after five
minutes of up time.
I always have to smile
whenever I hear anyone
say, "I wasn't even doing


COMPUTE
THIS
SEAN MCCARTHY


anything and it just locked
up."
Sure, you weren't doing
anything, but the computer
is still as busy as a one-
armed paperhanger.
Consider this: even if you
are just sitting there, hands
completely off the mouse
and keyboard, the comput-
er is constantly (and I do
mean constantly) looking at
the keyboard and mouse
for any change. It's also re-
painting whatever's on the
screen 60 to 70 times a
second, checking to see if
it's time to start the screen
saver, listening to network
or modem connections for
incoming calls and more.
So even if you are not
doing anything, the
computer is still very busy
just waiting for you to do
something. And that's not
even considering the
hundreds of other things it
has to do just to keep the
desktop alive and stable.
That's why your computer
can sometimes become
overwhelmed and freeze
up.
So what do you do about


it when it happens? Let's go
through a common sce-
nario.
Let's say you are surfing
the Internet and you click a
link, the page loads and you
start reading. You get to the
bottom of the page and go
to click somewhere else,
but the pointer is just an
hourglass and you can't
click anything. Or, maybe
the pointer looks fine (no
hour glass) but still, nothing
happens when you click.
What do you do then?
First, don't panic.
It usually doesn't mean
the computer is messed up.
It usually means that it got
bogged down somewhere
and needs a "little nudge"
to get it back on track.
I usually try to get the
computer's attention by
trying a couple of different
keyboard commands. I'll
hit the escape key (usually
at the top left-hand side of
the keyboard) to divert the
machine's attention from
whatever it's stuck on.
Sometimes this all it takes
and sometimes not. If the
escape key doesn't change
anything I'll try the old
standard: CTRL +ALT + DEL
(aka the "three finger
salute") and see if I can
access the task manager.
But what if that doesn't
work?
Another thing to try


would be to reboot the
machine. Just press and
hold the power button until
the computer shuts down,
wait 10 to 20 seconds and
turn it back on. After the
machine restarts, things
should be back to normal
and you should have
control of your mouse
again.
I know powering off the
computer is not the
"proper" way to shut it
down but sometimes it's the
only way. If you can't click
anything, how are you
going to initiate a proper
shutdown?
Occasional lock ups and
other similar issues have
given Windows a bad name,
but I take it with a grain of
salt. Knowing there are so
many other things going on
in the background makes it
easier to understand why
your computer occasionally
freezes.
Frankly, the same thing
happens from time to time
with Macs, too. I've seen it
with my own eyes.
The issue is knowing
what to do when the
occasional lock up hap-
pens.

Ten years from now, I
believe that at least 75
percent of all new
cars will be purchased over
the Internet.
Right now it is less than
20 percent. The reason is
simply that the Internet
price is usually your lowest
price and more car buyers
are figuring that out every
day.
Dealers must give their
best price to a prospect
inquiring over the Internet,
because that dealer
probably will have only that
one chance to sell the car. If
they try "the old negotiat-
ing game" the Internet
prospect will simply choose
the lowest price from
several other quotes he
gets. When my friends ask
me to advise them on how
to get the best price on a
new car, I always tell them
to use the Internet. If they
ask me for the best price on
my product, Toyota, I give
them my Internet price.

Master watchmaker

opens jewelry store


BY RITA HART
Staff writer


PORT ST. LUCIE -
Eliott Acosta first
learned about
watchmaking as a
high school student
in New York in the
only school that
taught the trade in a
four-year program.

He parlayed this
experience into a
career repairing
watches for other
jewelry stores. On
May 2, a dream of his


was realized when
he and his wife
Maria opened
Reality Jewelers. The
store's slogan is,
"Where we
make your dreams a
reality."

"We are a dying
breed," said Mr.
Acosta as he attend-
ed to last minute
preparations on the
day of his open
house. "I purchased
equipment no one
else in this area will
buy."


Mr. Acosta has state-
of-the-art equip-
ment that allows
him to make parts,
troubleshoot watch
problems with hi-
tech machinery and
test just how water-
proof a watch really
is. He stocks hun-
dreds of parts in his
shop, allowing some
repairs to be done
the same day a
watch is brought in.
He even has 70-
year-old watch
repair equipment


that is no longer
manufactured,
allowing him to
repair antique
watches.

Mr. Acosta repairs
and sells high-end
watches, including
Rolex, Seiko,
Accutron, Citizen,
Wittnauer and
Bulova.

For those watching
their budgets, he
offers Caravelle by
Bulova watches, with
an average cost of
less than $100.

Although it is clear
that Mr. Acosta's first
love is watches, he
also offers a beauti-
ful array of jewelry.
He has on staff two
part-time jewelers
for repairs and cus-
tom work.

"I try to cover every-


body's pocket," said
Mr. Acosta. "My jew-
elry ranges from the
very affordable to
high-end."

One of the reasons
Mr. Acosta decided
to start his own busi-
ness was his obser-
vation that cus-
tomers were not
always fairly treated
in the stores for
which he did repairs.

"I've seen cases
where all the watch
needed is a battery,
and the customer
was charged for a
complete overhaul,"
he said.

Mr. Acosta is so
intent on treating his
customers fairly that
his shop allows for a
full view of the watch
and jewelry repairs
taking place from
the front of the store.


"The big thing is
trust today and I'm
trying to build your
trust," said Mr.
Acosta.

Reality Jewelers is
located at 333 S.W.
Port St. Lucie Blvd.,
Port St. Lucie (across
from Circle K and
two doors away from
Barry University).

tion, call (772) 879-

Stewart
From page A7
dealer to see, touch, smell
and drive the new vehicles
you are considering. This is
very important. You can't
make a valid, final decision
on which new vehicle is
best for you by solely
reading data and looking at
pictures on the Internet,
Consumer Reports or any
other source. Research of
that nature is important,
but you should finalize your
decision with visits to the
dealers to actually experi-
ence the vehicle.
Once you have made your
final decision on the year,
make, model, color and
accessories, you are ready
to sit down at your PC and
choose the dealer from
whom you will buy this
specific vehicle. If you are
not handy with a PC, ask a
friend or relative who is.
First, go to the manufac-
turer's Web site like
www.ford.com, www.toy-
ota.com,
www.chevrolet.com, etc.
You will be able to type in
your ZIP code to find all
dealers of that make within
a given radius, usually
about 40 miles, giving you
three or four dealers. To
expand the radius, choose
another ZIP code further
from yours. The dealers
within your radius will
show their Web site
addresses. Click on their
Web site and ask for a quote
on the specific car you have
selected. Most Web sites
have a page for what is
called a "quick quote." You
type in the year, make,
model, color and acces-
sories. It will also ask you
for your name, telephone
number, address, if you
have a trade (check no),
whether you are ready to
buy now (yes) and other
questions. All you really
need to fill out is year,
make, model and acces-
sories and your e-mail
address. If you prefer not to
be contacted by phone,
don't fill in the phone
number. If they require it
before you can submit your
request, type in any 10
digits so that the Web page
will allow you to. If you can't
find a quick quote page, just
e-mail your request to their
Internet sales department.
Depending on your PC
and typing skills, this whole
process should take less


than half an hour. Think of
all the time, gasoline, shoe
leather and especially
aggravation you are saving,
compared to visiting as
many dealerships in
person. The time it will take
to get back quotes varies
from dealership to dealer-
ship. You may get some
back within a few minutes,
some will take a few hours
and some may take a day or
two.
Believe it or not, some
might not respond at all.
There are even a few
dealers who will not quote
a price on the Internet, but
try to lure you into their
store with false promises.
Ignore them. I recommend
that you get a minimum of
three valid price quotes on
your specific vehicle. It's so
easy to get quotes, why not
get a half dozen or so? You
are not necessarily even
limited by driving dis-
tances. If the best price is
from a dealer who is too far
away, show that quote to a
dealer nearer you and ask
him if he will match it.
There are some things
that you must be careful
about. Be sure the price
you get is an "out the door"
price. That is a price which
excludes only federal, state,
and local fees and taxes,
which are usually just for
tax and tag.
Most dealers in Florida
tack on a fee or fees of their
own which are variously
referred to as dealer fee,
delivery fee, documentary
fee, etc. This is illegal in
many states, but not in
Florida. These fees vary
from around $500 to $900.
Be sure this fee, which is
just profit to the dealer, is
included in your out the
door price. Also, be
absolutely certain that you
are comparing apples and
apples. When you select
your low bid, double check
this dealer is quoting you
on the same year, make,
model and accessories as
the other dealers.

MARTIN COUNTY-
Jeanne and Whitney Pidot
of Jupiter Island will co-
chair the 22nd annual
American Red Cross Ball to
be held Dec. 5, at the
Willoughby Country Club in
Stuart.
A longtime volunteer with
the American Red Cross in
Nassau County, N.Y., Mrs.
Pidot has served the Red
Cross in a variety of roles
over the years.
She is a member of the
board of directors for the
American Red Cross Martin

A good double-check is
to compare the MSRP. The
MSRP, manufacturer's
suggested retail price, will
be identical on identically-
equipped cars of the same
model and year. Also, be
sure the car you have the
price on will be there when
you come in. Give them
deposit on your credit card
to hold the car for you.
Internet car hnvers are


inducted in the Martin
County Red Cross Humani-
tarian Hall of Fame for her
more than 20 years of volun-
teer service.
Mrs. Pidot, a registered
nurse, also volunteered as
an instructor trainer in
health and safety and was a
nurse at the response to the
TWA Flight 800 disaster.
Her Red Cross awards
include the National Ameri-
can Red Cross award for
leadership and the Nassau

leadership, its highest
honor, the Davison Bowl.

the wave of the future. The
retail car business is going
through rapid changes and
the old-fashioned, price-
haggling way of buying cars
is slowly, but surely,
becoming obsolete. If you
haven't already, now is the
time to join the ranks of
smart, sophisticated car
buyers.

enjoyable activities for visi-
tors and residents alike.
So, instead of traveling
elsewhere this summer,
consider a visit to the Space
Coast, while spending less
cash and gaining a new
appreciation for Brevard's
beloved beaches.
While Melbourne Beach is
known for its small-town
feel and casual atmosphere,
it is also the county's oldest
beachside community,
established in 1883, accord-
ing to the town of Mel-
bourne Beach's Web site,
www.melbournebeachfl.org.
In 1921, the original Mel-
bourne Causeway was built,
connecting Melbourne
Beach to the mainland via


what is now known as Indi-
alantic.
Some of the town's earliest
buildings (or replicas of the
originals), such as the Ryck-
man House, the Melbourne
Beach Post Office and the
town's community chapel,
still stand today.
For a deeper look into the
town's history, stop in the
long-standing Old Town
Hall History Center at 2373
Oak Street, which is open
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3
p.m.
If fishing is your forte,
Melbourne Beach is home
to some of the county's
most popular fishing spots,
both along the beach and in
the Indian River Lagoon.

who have lived here all their
lives, rarely take advantage
of their location.

Children's entertainer stirs imagination


By Shelley Koppel
Entertainment writer
STUART Children's
entertainer Darrell House
wears many hats. He is a
singer, songwriter, author,
storyteller and literacy
advocate.
He brings all his talents
to bear when he performs
on July 11 at the Hoke
Library in Jensen Beach at
11 a.m. and at the Blake
Library in Stuart at 2 p.m.
He spoke recently about
the serious business of
entertaining children.
Mr. House had been a
musician all his life, but he
began writing songs for
children when his own
kids were in elementary
school.
"It was a way to beat traf-
fic," he said. "I went early
to pick up the kids and I'd
park under a tree and wait
for 30 minutes. I started
writing to entertain my
kids and make them laugh.
I write about speed bumps
and clouds and messy
rooms, things to make my
girls laugh. It grew and
grew."
When his daughters
were young, they made a
butterfly garden and Mr.
House spun a tale about a
caterpillar who wants to
fly. The result was the book
"Miller the Green Caterpil-
lar," a work that gently
spoke about holding onto
a dream.

Author and musician Darrell House comes to the Hoke Library in Jensen Beach and
the Blake Library in Stuart, on July 11.


"He goes to the other
critters to learn how to fly,
but he doesn't just dream,"
Mr. House said. "It's about
setting goals and working
to make them come true."
Mr. House read to his
daughters every night,
wanting to spread the
message of the joys of the
imagination.
"It became a natural
direction, talking about
how wonderful reading
and imagination is," Mr.
House said. "There are so
many people you can meet
and places you can go in
your imagination."
Mr. House mixes his sto-


ries with original songs,
poetry and sing-alongs. He
loves working at libraries
because of the mix of ages
that come to his show.
"The focus was on
grades 1-3 for my kids," he
said. "I maintained the
focus. Fourth- and fifth-
graders first think they're
more hip and then they
like the songs. My demo-
graphic changed, but my
commitment to being a
good songwriter never fal-
tered."
While there are gentle
lessons in Mr. House's
words, the emphasis is on
fun.


"It's high-energy," he
said. "I love the sounds of
words. I work it all into a
conversation and it's never
exactly the same show. I
write funny stuff and try to
make them laugh."

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 7-3-2009
Aries-March 21-April 19
Remove any limitations you
have placed on yourself and
move up to new heights of
accomplishment and success.
It's time to respect and honor
yourself as you do others. Call
on spirit to awaken and
renew the light within you, so
your path may be clearly
seen. Trust the universe and it
will bring you great rewards.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
There is important work to be
done, starting with yourself.
The first step is to forgive and
release the past. Free yourself
of accumulated baggage.
Move ahead and dream new
and larger dreams. Life is a
continuing learning experi-
ence. When things don't work
out as planned, new and bet-
ter things are on the way. Be
patient.

Gemini-May 21 -June 21
Keep life simple. Now is not
the time to complicate things.
Form choices and opinions
on what you now know, not
on what you aren't sure of.
Act when it feels right. If you
aren't sure, wait. Running
away is not the answer. Our
challenges follow us. Be sure
to follow your heart. It will
always tell the truth if you are
open to it and listening.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You have one of the strongest
hearts in the universe. People
may not always understand
you, but they sure are in awe
of your character and deter-
mination. Why? Because you
never give up. Just stay away
from negative people who
would drain you of this fine
spirit. Your love of family is
legendary. You are always
there when needed.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
There are few life challenges
you aren't up to handling.
Why? Because you let your
visions guide you. You listen
to your inner guidance. This is
your greatest help when mak-
ing tough decisions. This
approach has helped in the
past, helps now and will serve
you well in the future. You are
divinely connected, you
know.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept.22
Experience life to the fullest
and then give back and share
all the good received. Contin-
ue to feed your passion. Light
your fire. Do what you love.

From page B1
Creative stress and deadlines
are the dynamic tensions that
help you start and complete
projects in a timely manner.
This is the key to your continu-
ing adventures and success.
Libra-Sept. 23-Oct.22
There is little holding you back
these days. You have grown
so much spiritually. You have
your second wind. You are a
powerful, positive force with
your friends. You are constant-
ly increasing your knowledge
and wisdom to enlighten your
mind and enhance your spirit.
This will continue to be one of
the best years of your life.
Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Only you can truly know what
is right for you. Look within
yourself, listen then act
accordingly. Opportunity for
change and growth is at hand.
You have come safely thus far.
Don't stop now. Be obedient
to yourself. What is it that you
truly want? When you know,
the challenge is more than
half over. It's all downhill from
here.
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your understanding of life has
taken a quantum leap this
year. Your sense of family con-
tinues to grow stronger, as
well. You are growing profes-
sionally and socially. This
bright attitude is contagious to
others who want to know
what you know. You share
your blessings so freely. Spirit
loves you. Yours is a great life,
well lived.


ideas flow in. You are a spring-
board for change. Dare to be
different. Pace yourself and
unlimited results are yours for
the asking.
Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
When you feel safe and nur-
tured, you are happy and at
your best. Feed positive things
daily into your life that keep
you healthy, physically, men-
tally, emotionally and spiritu-
ally. Now you have a universal
blessing upon you. This
makes a strong statement to
the world that you are some-
one up for the challenge.
What an awesome way to live.

In our continuing effort to
bring to you only the best
golf information, this
week we give you the "2009
golf tee test."
Here are our findings.
Target/Wal-Mart multi
color pack: Some of the
most affordable tees on the
market, they lack the
durability of last year's
model. Each tee lasts only
1.69 shots.
Interestingly, the yellow
tees lasted the longest,
averaging 3.28 shots before
breaking. The green tees
lasted the shortest, with a
.82 shot average, some
never even getting to tee a
ball when they were
dropped, blending into the
grass, never to be seen
again. Grade: C
All-white pack: See above

STAMMER


results, except these were
not yellow tees, so overall
durability was even less.
Grade: D
Stinger Pro XL: Our most
expensive wooden tee. The
thin head and streamline
design create less drag and
resistance, which reportedly
combines for a 14-yard gain
over conventional tees. Our
results were a bit less
thrilling at 1.78-yard gain.
However, this hardly
compensates for the
additional 9.7 seconds it
takes to properly balance


the ball on the pinhead size
crown of this &%#@$ tee.
We also found this time
increases in direct relation
to beer consumed. Grade:
C-
Zero friction tee: These
nearly-indestructible tees
mean a bag of 15 may last
you into retirement. Buy a
few bags and you could pass
them down to your grand-
children.
In fact, we have no true
shot average stats to give, as
each tester is still using his
or her original tee. The only
drawback is the sharp
prongs on which the ball
rests. Resembling a dart or
missile, the tee tends to get
caught in your pocket,
slowing down your round.
Grade: B+
Evolve Golf Epoch-3:
Another pricey option. The


patented pronged design is
said to reduce surface
contact by 97 percent,
versus a traditional wooden
tee, and promotes a stagger-
ing gain of 1.81 yards.
Our test team eagerly
anticipated rendering
traditional golf courses
obsolete with this wonder
peg. We soon found our-
selves devastated when we
discovered we couldn't
penetrate the hard-pan
teeing ground with the tee.
A traditional wooden tee
was substituted and
inserted without incident.
Grade: D-
The Brush tee XL: Our
most expensive tee tested,
yet the promised yardage
and accuracy gains should
certainly offset the extra

"EARL
EARL STEWART STEWARTL

S)TOYOTA


An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.

Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers. I am not trying to tell you
how to run your business. I "MYv CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectati
customers.


EMPLOYMENT
If our culture
sounds like one
that fits with your
ideas on the way
business should
be conducted,
please call us.
561*844*3461
We need to add
to our team in all
departments...
sales, service,
parts, body shop,
and accounting.


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


able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
or used car. You can do the
same.
