MARTIN COUNTY A $30,000 grant from the B ank of America Charitable F oundation to Indiantown N on-Profit Housing will help provide homes for low-income families. The money did immediate good, allowing the local nonprofit to qualify for another gift: matching funds from a challenge grant through the Community Foundation for Palm B each and Martin counties. W ith $60,000, I ndiantown Non-Profit H ousing will be able to provide rental homes for at least nine families for about three years, said Maureen M aureen Saltzer Gawel, vice president of McNicholas & Associates, a public relations firm representing the nonprofit. "O ur communities are in a crisis. As unemployment continues to be an issue, families need more of the basics.A safe place to live is critical and hard to come by for struggling families," said Tammy Matthew, consumer market manager for B ank of America. That is why we are so pleased to provide I ndiantown Non-Profit H ousing with a $30,000 grant to assist their efforts in providing affordable r ental homes for local families." The group will help residents through Martin C ounty's neighborhood stabilization program, which assists eligible residents who earn less than 50 percent of the area's median income. U nder the program, a family of four with a household income of up to $28,350 would be eligible to r ent a home for $709 per month or less under the program. "A t that (income) level, even the reduced rents are a difficult hurdle," Ms. S altzer Gawel said. "The B of A Foundation grant, coupled with the Community F oundation matching grant, will enable the program rents to be reduced An alert Martin County deputy nabbed two men later suspected of stealing items valued at more than $50,000 from a marina in St. Lucie C ounty, authorities said last week.

The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 is commonly known as M edicare Part D. It is the prescription drug component of Medicare and it is available to Medicare recipients who have Part A or Part B. While under the Medicare umbrella, Part D is more like traditional insurance. M edicare r ecipients must choose a plan, run by an insurance company. To do so, it's necessary to find out which plans are available in your area and then compare the cost for the drugs you take. If you belong to Medicare Advantage, it may have a prescription benefit with it. If this sounds complicated, it is. If you do not take any prescription drugs, you might be tempted to skip Pa rt D. Ho we ver, unless you have good drug coverage from a present or former employer, you will pay a penalty for not enrolling when you are first eligible. That penalty continues for as long as you have Part D.Choosing a planThose with access to a computer can find help at the Medicare website www.medicare.gov It is a little daunting, but by indicating where you live and what medications you take, a list of plans available to you, with the premiums, will appear. You can compare them online. For further information, you can contact each insurer independently to make sure that the medications you take are covered and that you understand what the premiums and copays will be. The SHINE program is also useful for figuring out Part D. S tanding for Serving Health I nsurance Needs of Elders, SHINE is a state-wide volunteer-based program offering free Medicare and health insurance education, counseling and assistance. SHINE is administered in F lorida by the Department of Elder Affairs. SHINE v olunteers can offer free, unbiased information on Medicare; Medicaid, the state-run program for those with low income; M edicare supplemental insurance or Medigap; longterm care insurance, prescription drug insurance or Pa rt D; and Medicare fraud. They can also assist lowincome beneficiaries in applying for extra help with prescription premiums. When the Medicare Part D benefit went into effect, in 2006, beneficiaries had to pay 100 percent of prescription drug costs after they r eached a coverage limit and until their drug expenses qualified them for catastrophic coverage. This was known as the infamous doughnut hole.' P atty Guttu is assistant SHINE liaison for Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin counties. She noted some important changes to Part D in 2011. This year, if you are taking brand name drugs and y ou hit the doughnut hole,' it's 50 percent co-pay for the beneficiary," she said. B efore, it was 100 percent. F or generic drugs, the beneficiary pays 93 percent and Medicare picks up seven percent. The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Health Ca re A ct has made the doughnut hole less of a burden. Jeff Johnson interim state director of AARP Florida said that people who fall into the category will receive some relief. This year people who fall into the coverage gap will r eceive a 50 percent discount on their name-brand prescription drugs and a seven percent discount on generic drugs. The "doughnut hole starts at $2,840 in covered prescription drugs costs and ends when the catastrophic coverage kicks in at $4,550. "I n succeeding years, the discount will rise and by 2020, the doughnut hole' will disappear entirely.

Wo rk started on the project on Sept. 26 and is set to last until the end of December. C onstruction crews will spend about three months building a reef on the northern tip of the small island, located about 1 mile south of the Stuart Causeway and east of Sewall's Point in the I ndian River Lagoon. "W e' ve tried shoreline stabilization with plants and mangroves, and have done five separate plantings," said Ga ry R oderick, Martin C ounty's environmental quality manager. "But the wave energy from storms and boat traffic is just too powerful to keep the shoreline stable." That's why this new effort will build a wall of carbonate rock about two feet above the water levels at high tide. The reef will be 395 feet long and 20 feet wide and wrap around the island's most vulnerable point, its northern tip. Ba r ges filled with construction material will travel about a mile from a staging area at the Ernest Lyons Br idge to the island during the project. C ounty staff said the goal is to cause as little disruption as possible to boat traffic and birds nesting on the island. Bi rd I sland is the area's only nesting area for wood stocks. Each year about 25 pairs of wood stocks flock to the island. The island is also among the state's top 10 for nesting. Sinc e 1980, it has lost about 30 percent or about an acre of its shoreline. Grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Florida In land Navigation District, N ational Estuaries program, I ndian River Lagoon license plate program and Martin C ounty's conservation lands impact fees helped pay for the project. "O ur purpose is to block the wave action that's eroding the north end of the island," Mr. Roderick said. MARTIN COUNTY While some major bookstores have had to close their doors in recent months, one seller of used books has been thriving. Thanks to a crew of 15 volunteers, the Martin C ounty Library System's bookstore now has a new look to accommodate its growing customer base. V isitors to Book Depot, the libraries' used book store, at the B&A Flea Market, will have an easier time picking out bargains, thanks to volunteers who arranged the store's inventory of about 30,000 books alphabetically across two r ooms. "W e rearranged things, moving thousands of books around to make it more user friendly and easier to operate," said E ddie Evans, a volunteer who manages the Book D epot. In tough economic times that have led to the demise of national chain bookstores such as Borders, the B ook Depot continues to attract thousands of customers drawn to its deeply discounted books, movies and music. Last year, the nonprofit store raised more than $70,000. All that money goes r ight back into the library and the Book Depot," Ms. Ev ans said. The used bookstore is the area's largest and gets its merchandise from the Ma r tin County Library S ystem and donations. It sells children's books for prices ranging from a dime to 50 cents, and paperbacks go for $1. Wo r ks by popular fiction writers generally sell for about a fifth the price at other stores. "P eople often come in here and buy a bag of books, and then they'll say that's the price of one book in a bookstore," Ms. Evans said. V olunteers in the Fr iends of the Library program run the store. This is a great community resource," said Diane To masik, a volunteer, who also works for House of H ope, a program that helps residents struggling to meet financial needs. B&A Flea Market is located at 2885 S.E.Federal H ighway,Stuart.Book D epot is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m.to noon,and Saturdays and S undays from 9 a.m.to 2 p .m.By Samantha Josephsjoseph@hometownnewsol.comLibraries' used bookstore thrives in tough timesBy Samantha Josephsjoseph@hometownnewsol.com SearchingThe Search For Y our Car ENDSHERE!Martin County thru Ormond BeachClassified For That Perfect Car? www.hometownnewsol.com

so we figured if we could get people to start eating them, we might be able to do something about the population growth." That's why his restaurant added lionfish to its menu in mid-September and is serving several recipes with the white fish. In one dinner entrŽe, the chef braises the fish in brown butter, and then serves it with a Meyer lemon cream, arugula and parsnip puree. The first night Ian's introduced the dish, the restaur ant sold out all 12 portions in about an hour. D emand isn't high for the native Indo-Pacific fish that found its way to local waters through the aquarium trade. The restaurant sells about 3to 8-pounds of lionfish per week, and customers often ask about the dangers r elated to the fish's venom. B ut only the fish's spines are venomous, and not its meat, Mr. Grutka said, and federal wildlife and area conservation officials encourage residents to eat lionfish to reduce the animal's population. "I t' s not the same as the blowfish where the venom's on the inside and you have to be careful not to poison the meat," Mr. Grutka said. "O nce it's clean, there's no poison that you have to be worried about during consumption." The restaurant's campaign comes as one Treasure Coast conservation group launched an education campaign about the fish. The Manatee Observation and Education Center in Fo rt Pierce is adding a lionfish display to teach residents about laws regarding the fish and encourage its consumption. They're carnivorous and prey on both adult and juvenile native species, such as grouper and spiny lobster. They eat anything and everything, and there's not much that preys on them," said Lesley Ryder, the Manatee Center's education coordinator. "O ur concern is that our fisheries industry is going to be at risk." Low demand means the fish is expensive, retailing for about $26 to $28 per pound. B ut Mr. Grutka, who says Ia n' s Tropical Grill is the only restaurant on the Treasure Coast to serve the fish, hopes to see a growing appetite for the underwater predator. "I t' s not something that people run around asking for yet, but the whole point is to start raising awareness," he said. "It's a very delicious fish. People who like hog fish or most any snapper would love to eat this fish." Ia n' s Tropical Grill is located at 1205 N.E.Dixie Highway in Jensen Beach.For more information,call (772) 334-4563.

Rhonda Irons, director of media relations for the Sheriff's Office, said the incident was still under investigation and no charges were filed. Mr. Hicks went to the D iodato residence after the D iodatos placed a companionship ad that Mr. Hicks told authorities he found on Cr aig's List, a website that contains a variety of classified ads. Mr, Diodato said that Mrs. D iodato and Mr. Hicks "discussed fees and what sexual acts that were to be performed," an incident report said. B ut when Mr. Diodato, who was initially inside a bedroom, came outside, Mr. H icks became upset, Mr. D iodato told authorities. Mr. Diodato told Mr. Hicks that he would go outside while Mr. Hicks had a 30minute session with his wife, he told authorities. When Mr. Hicks asked for a refund the amount was not specified in the report Mr. Diodato told him that that he needed to enjoy his time and give Sarah a chance to help him relax," the report said. At that time, Mr. Diodato r eported that Mr. Hicks grabbed him and tried to push him to the ground, while Mrs. Diodato jumped on Mr. Hicks' back to get him off of her husband, the r eport said. When Mr. Diodato got free from a headlock that Mr. H icks put him in, Mr. Hicks "g r abbed Sarah and started choking her," he told investigators. Mr. Diodato got a gun, r esulting in Mr. Hicks letting go of Mrs. Diodato and fighting with Mr. Diodato ov er the weapon, the husband told investigators. After Mr. Diodato threw the gun away from them, Mr. Hicks grabbed Mrs. D iodato and started choking her again, the husband r eported her. That's when Mr. Diodato shot Mr. Hicks in the side, he told investigators. Mrs. Diodato told authorities that Mr. Hicks became angry that her husband was present and started punching her in the mouth and face. Mrs. Diodato was bleeding from the mouth when investigators arrived, the r eport said. This was not the first time that Mrs. Diodato had solicited men over the Internet who wanted companionship, the report said. Mr. Diodato told authorities that he and his wife had been using websites, such as Cr aig's List, "to offer various males companionship' with Sa r ah for money," the report said. "D aniel stated he protects Sa r ah during these encounters by waiting outside to listen and make sure Sarah is not hurt. "D aniel said that there are r ules for these encounters, such as the males being r equired to wear condoms and not being allowed to kiss Sarah," the report said.ShotF rom page A1

F or the past decade, we have had a choice between M icrosoft's Internet E xplorer, Netscape and Fi r efox. There have been other browsers available, such as the one that is built into AOL. Maybe you are a Mac user and use the S afari browser. F or the most part, I've been using Firefox as my primary browser. It's not exciting, but it's good. I get to surf the Web without many issues. Every now and again my browser crashes and I have to r estart it. But that's no big deal to me, considering how hard we push things these days. It's just the way things are. U ntil now, that is. A while back, Google introduced a new browser called Chrome. I didn't think too much about it when it was released, but I started seeing a ton of positive comments and thought I ought to check it out. After running it for a few months, I am impressed. The folks at Google have r edefined Web browsing in a way that makes it fast and secure, with a couple new features that I hadn't thought of. Chrome is free to download and use and free of any spyware or other nastiness. If you're interested in trying it, point y our browser to www.google.com/chrome and download a copy to y our desktop. After the download is complete, double click the downloaded file and let it install. Tell it to import all of your favorites and preferences and then let it r un. The first thing you will see is Chrome's "most visited" page, which (after using the browser for a while) will fill up with thumbnails of your most frequently visited Web pages instead of just one start page" like most other browsers. The second thing you may notice is the tabs are at the very top of the browser window instead of at the top of the Web page. What this means is that each tab you open also has its own address bar, and each page that is opened in each tab is essentially r unning in its own little world. In all the other browsers, we have one browser with each tab sharing the browser's resources. That means that as you open tabs, you use more r esources, making the browser slower and less stable as time goes on. W ith Chrome, each tab runs w ith its own r esources, meaning the browser stays fast and stable no matter how many tabs you open or close. Another feature I like is that it has its own task manager built in. This means geeks like me will be able to see what is going on in the background with Chrome and see what tab is using what. That makes troubleshooting problem Web sites a little easier. Another feature that is new to the world of browsers is Chrome's incognito mode, which opens a window with no browser history, search history or cookies collected. This can be useful on shared machines. I invite you to download Google's new browser. Try it out for a bit and then send me an e-mail. Tell me what you think, and I'll share your comments here.

Slow the seasons downI just don't understand why stores are already putting out Christmas decorations. Halloween isn't even here yet, but instead of ghosts and goblins, there are elves and candy canes on the shelves. Why do we have to rush every thing? We are such a materialistic society. There's no time to enjoy the fall because we're already preparing for winter. I know, why don't we dress the little kids up as Santa for H alloween and give them Easter candy? That way, we can celebrate all of the holidays at once.F ood stamp fraudI have seen so many immigrants who have food stamps who should not have them. The problem is with the food stamp office. We are having bad times here, and they are giving money away. Then on top of that, people with food stamps are driving expensive cars and SUVs. Are they double-checking these people's Social Security numbers? I thought food stamps were for Americans who need help until they get on their feet? Now it seems anyone from anywhere can get them. I see so many illegal immigrants get it now. Do all of these people get asked for their Social Security numbers so they can qualify? Or are they free to anyone? More on food stampsD id I just hear that right? People on food stamps might soon be able to buy fast food? You've got to be kidding me. It 's bad enough that I see them buying steak and lobster, but now they can buy tacos and burgers? Maybe if all we let them buy was fruits and vegetables, then the lazy SOBs would get off their behinds and get a job.Stop wasting waterI see my neighbors using their irrigation systems more than once a week on automatic settings, even at this time of year. Thirty years ago, the experts told us we have a limited supply of oil. We did virtually nothing. So if we are foolish about the use of water, expect the same result. K eep the parks openThis is regarding the closing of parks in the area. When one moves to an area, there are certain things that should be provided, such as schools and parks. I go to the parks at least four times a week. I enjoy seeing the kids playing and fishing. I've been paying taxes in this area for 10 years now, and it makes me irate that something that I've been paying for is being taken away from me without my opinion. What we need to look at is the management of the parks and the city. That's where the problem begins and ends.Y outh need activitiesWe need more activities for the youth of the city. There is nothing for them to do, so that's why they are out there getting in trouble. The cops need help keeping them in line. The kids need more things to do to keep them occupied and out of trouble.Stand up to terrorismOn the president's orders, an American-born member of al-Qaida was shot and killed. This man had no remorse or concern about the lives that this terrorist group has destroyed, yet some pacifists are saying that Obama didn't give this American a right to a fair trial and that he was unjustly killed. Since when have we become such a bunch of soft pansies? If we took this type of approach toward any and all that conspired to harm Americans and humans in general, I'm willing to bet that these terrorists would back down. Got something to say?

L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Iwrote this column four y ears ago, but a recent incident made it very personal. Last Thursday, I re ceived a letter from the F lorida Highway Safety and M otor Vehicle Department. It said: "This agency has re ceived information expressing concerns about y our ability to drive safely. P lease call the driver license office below to set up an appointment to take the vision, written, driving (in traffic) and hearing examinations." This came as a total surprise and I was very skeptical because I'm in excellent physical and mental health. My vision, hearing and reflexes are more than adequate to drive a car. I have a "safe driver" stamp on my license and I've never had a traffic accident. I'm in the process of investigating this bizarre occurrence and my preliminary finding show that the FHSMV is not being forthright in their letter. In fact, letters are mailed to all Florida residents who turn 70 and renew their licenses online or by mail. After 80 these letters are mailed every other year. Testing based strictly by age is prohibited by law. Our legislators attempted to pass such a law but it was defeated by strong lobbying by the AARP. I will write a column on this when I have all the facts. Y ou may have read in the newspaper a couple of weeks ago about a 94-yearold man who hit a woman riding a bicycle. It wasn't the man's fault; the woman, in her 50s, r an a stop sign. They put the old man in jail overnight and he was given probation because he was driving with no license. It had been taken away because he failed his driver's test. He said he had to drive because he had to take his wife to the doctor and pick up medicine for her. There is another reason a lot of younger people don't seem to understand why this old man still owned a car. If y ou are one of these people, think back to the first time y ou ever drove a car. Think back to the time you owned y our first car. Can you recall that wonderful feeling of freedom? No longer did mom or dad have to take you to school, to work, to the store or to a friend's house. Or, you didn't have to take the bus, the street car or impose on a friend who already owned a "f r eedom machine." If y ou are a guy, do you r emember how you felt when y ou first picked your girlfriend up at her home in your very own car? I don't know about you, but I still feel a tingle when I think about it. I r eally can't think of a more memorable experience in any young person's life. Your first kiss is probably a close second (my first car was a 1951 Pontiac Chieftain and my first kiss was from Mary Ann Riggle during a "spin the bottle game.") If y ou are one of those y ounger people who curse at that gray haired driver in front of you because she is driving too slowly, just r emember that she is probably a safer driver than y ou. N ewspapers like to feature stories of senior citizens having accidents and questioning their mental and physical faculties for driving, but insurance companies charge senior citizens lower premiums than you. That means they have fewer accidents and cause fewer injuries. A dmittedly, that is partly because we seniors drive fewer miles, but it's also because most of us drive slower and more carefully than you. My U ncle Charlie died eight years ago. He was 94. My A unt Marion died within a year of Uncle Charlie. They lived in the same very modest, small house on V alencia Drive in West Palm B each for 50 years. But they always owned a Cadillac and it was always parked outside in their driveway. Up until the time they were in their late 80s, the highlight of their week was to take a S unday drive in their shiny C adillac. Uncle Charlie always drove. When his eyesight got too bad to drive, he still kept that Cadillac in their driveway, always clean and shiny. His eyesight was still good enough so that, from his rocking chair in his living room, he could see thatBUSINESSF or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.com ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A8 2x.5 Visit W ebsite

big Cadillac sitting outside (and so could his neighbors). My father died when he was 86 and he drove a P ontiac TransAm up until the very last. He had cataracts r emoved from both eyes and back then, you had to wear C oke bottle-style glasses to see after this operation. He had no peripheral vision and there were a lot of scrapes, dings and dents that appeared on both sides of that TransAm. Thank God he never had a serious accident. I saw dad every day and I would see that the dents and scratches were regularly r epaired. He always said he didn't know where they came from and I never questioned him about that. Maybe I was wrong, but I didn't have the heart to ask him not to drive anymore. I knew how important that car was to dad and I knew how devastating it would be to him if he couldn't drive anymore. At my Toyota dealership in No r th Palm Beach, we have a lot of older customers. It's just the demographics of northern Palm Beach County. My average customer is 55 and I have lots of customers in their 70s, 80s and 90s. M aybe it's because I'm a senior citizen, too but I especially like talking to my older customers and I've become personal friends with some. I can tell you from personal experience how important their cars are to them in their latter years. Du r ing your middle years when you have so much more going on in your life, y our car becomes more utilitarian and you take it for granted. But when you retire and your life is not as hectic y our car returns to the importance it had when you we re 16; your "freedom machine." We r ecently leased a new C amry to one of our very good customers. This was the third car that she got from us ov er the last seven years and she had just turned 90. One of my managers, who has worked for me for 20 years and is a neighbor of hers, handled the lease. A bout a month after she took her new Camry home, her grandson learned of the transaction and demanded that we rescind the lease. When we spoke to our customer, she let us know that her grandson was very upset with her for leasing the car. He didn't think she should be driving a car anymore and that she wouldn't live long enough to make all the payments on a four-year lease. We offered to r efund all of the profit on the lease (about $850), but the grandson insisted that we take the lease car back. This would cost my company thousands because of the depreciation a car takes on as soon as it is titled as a used car. Y esterday afternoon my customer's grandson and stepson visited me in my office. They continued to demand that I rescind the lease (only the leasing company, Southeast Toyota F inance can rescind the lease) and absorb the thousands in depreciation on 1-month-old used car. They suggested that I may have broken laws by exploiting the elderly and that if I did not succumb to their demands they would sue me. They had already called Toyota to complain about my actions. N ot so politely, I asked them to leave my office. This experience troubled me for the rest of the day and even last night and is what inspired this column. No w I understand why I was so angry at the actions of my customer's grandson and stepson. They didn't seem to understand how much that car meant to their grandmother/stepmother's happiness and what an important thing her "freedom machine" was to her. I have to wonder how much of their ire was due to genuine concern for her or the potential financial impact on her estate. Her grandson told me that she had put only 1,500 miles on her last car and what does she need a new car for? He just doesn't get it. A new car is a lot more than just a way to get to the drug store. To a senior citizen it's a source of pleasure, pride and comfort, knowing that it's in their driveway for everyone to see and it's there if they need it.

The deputy in Martin C ounty who caught the suspects in those thefts noted in his report that there have been a number of marine product r elated thefts, in which v an style motor vehicles have been utilized as instruments of the thefts in Martin County." He noted that about 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 24, he noticed a van pulling a boat stop by a fenced boat storage yard on Indian St r eet. The location is near where other thefts occurred, the deputy noted. After making a stop on the vehicle, the men in the van said they had found the items, the r eport said. B ut the deputy who was suspicious of the story arrested the men, the r eport said. Later, the information about the thefts was r elayed to the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriff's Office, which determined the items were stolen from the marina. An investigation is continuing as to whether the men were responsible for any similar thefts in Martin County, said Rhonda Ir ons, public information officer for the Martin C ounty Sheriff's Office. The thefts in St. Lucie C ounty on Sept. 24 involved burglaries to three vessels at Island D unes Club House & Ma r ina, 8735 S. Ocean Drive. Thieves had taken outboard engine lower units, chart plotters, fishing poles and other items from the marina, the r eport said. The value of the thefts from the three vessels totaled $53,000, the r eport said. The report noted that at the time of the burglaries the vessels were raised above the water. This made it possible for the suspect(s) to r emove the lower units from the water, more than likely with the use of a boat in the water," the r eport said.L egislationF rom page A1 T om RooneyArrestsF rom page A1 StewartF rom page A7 GOT NEWS?CALLUSTODAY!

T wo-thousand eleven is a very big year for Baby B oomers. The very first group, those born in 1946, turn 65 this year. Some 10,000 a day will reach that milestone. Tu r ning 65 has its rewards and one big one is Medicare, but don't expect your red, white and blue card to arrive on your doorstep. If you are not receiving Social Security but want Medicare when y ou turn 65, you have to apply. The enrollment period begins three months before your 65th birthday and continues three months after. M edicare is financed by a portion of the payroll taxes paid by workers and employers and, in part, by monthly premiums deducted from Social security checks. The program is divided into four parts: Part A, hospital insurance; Part B, Medical insurance including doctor's visits and outpatient testing; Part C, M edicare Advantage; and Pa rt D, prescription drug coverage. J eff Johnson, interim state director for AARP Florida, said that each has a separate r ole. "M edicare Part A and B are sometimes referred to as "O r iginal Medicare," he said. "M ost people have this. It's the traditional program run by the federal government. Original Medicare covers 80 percent of the cost of most services that you need, but does not cover the full cost of your care." Pa rt C is often referred to as Medicare Advantage and is an HMO. You must have Pa r ts A and B to enroll in Pa rt C. You receive all of y our health care services through a provider organization. The costs may be lower and there may be additional benefits, but you are usually required to use plan doctors and hospitals. The plan may have drug coverage. Pa rt D is the prescription drug coverage. It is provided by private insurance companies and you pay a premium as you would for any other insurance. H elping to sort of out these complexities is the SHINE program. Standing for Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders, SHINE is a state-wide volunteerbased program offering free M edicare and health insurance education, counseling and assistance. SHINE is administered in Florida by the Department of Elder Affairs. SHINE volunteers can offer free, unbiased information on Medicare; Medicaid, the state-run program for those with low income; M edicare supplemental insurance or Medigap; longterm care insurance; prescription drug insurance or Pa rt D; and Medicare fraud. S ome counties offer counseling by phone and others have counseling sites. The biggest change this y ear is changes to the Annual Enrollment Period," said J ennifer Vander May, SHINE liaison for Indian River, St. L ucie and Martin counties. "It's al ways begun Nov. 15 and now it's Oct. 15-Dec. 7. P atty Guttu, assistant SHINE liaison, noted other changes. "S tarting in Jan. 2011, you can get an annual physical or wellness exam," she said. There used to be 20 percent co-pay, but now it's free." In addition to the exam, many preventive screening tests are now covered, including flu shots, screening mammograms, prostate exams, cardiovascular disease screening, bone mass measurements, glaucoma testing and colorectal cancer screening. Some of the screenings may have limitations and include only those with a family history of a condition. M any Medicare recipients decide that while Medicare pays for a lot of care, there is still a substantial amount that is not covered. For example, under Part B, after the deductible for the year is met, you pay 20 percent of the amount Medicare approves for the service. That includes each doctor's visit and test. S ome Medicare recipients decide to purchase a supplemental plan, often r eferred to as Medigap. These are sold by private insurers and are often advertised on television.Getting helpN avigating the Medicare shoals can be tricky and it is a good idea to plan. When you're about to celebrate your 65th birthday, it's very important that y ou take the time to think through your Medicare coverage," said Dave Bruns, AARP Florida's communication manager. "Sign up promptly and make sure y ou do your research on the options available to you. It can take a while to sort through this complicated issue and make the right choices, but you should take as much time as you need." There are many resources available to help make informed choices. The first, if you already receive M edicare, is the handbook, M edicare & You, sent to each r ecipient at the beginning of the year. It is particularly helpful in letting recipients about any changes in coverage and cost and the basics of what Medicare does cover. M edicare maintains a w ebsite, www.medicare.gov, which has the most up-todate information. Those without computers can call (800) 633-4227. The SHINE program is a great help in figuring out M edicare and its related parts. They can also assist in obtaining extra help with M edicare premiums for lowincome beneficiaries. To locate SHINE assistance in Florida, call the Elder Helpline at 1 (866) 684-5885. In Ma r tin County, SHINE counselors will be doing onsite counseling at the Council on Aging's new Kane Center later this year. For the time being, counseling is being done by phone. When someone calls, the Elder Helpline, if the call is SHINE-related, we get a r eferral," said Ms. Vander Ma y. "W e call the client and schedule a meeting. We can take the information by phone or meet with them." Ms. Guttu noted that SHINE volunteers do M edicare education, as well, making presentations throughout the community about Medicare basics and changes. For more information, call the Elder Helpline. AARP offers information about Medicare, as well. V isit the Web site at www.aarp.org. You can find good information on basic M edicare. W ading your way through M edicare is a challenging task but it's important to get the best information to make informed decisions. Da ve Bruns of AARP summed up why. After all, you've worked a lifetime for this benefit. M ake sure you get the most out of it."

The program worked so well that the following year, 27 more nurses were hired by the city. In 1909, the successful school nurse program expanded to Atlanta, B oston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and S eattle. School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances well-being, academic success and the lifelong achievement of students, according to the N ational Association of School Nurses. I am proud to be a member of NASN, as w ell as the Florida Association of School Nurses. As a school nurse, I am the provider of student health care. I must maintain clinical knowledge, understand the nursing process, assess health needs and provide care for acute and chronic health care problems. I must also be a health educator, by teaching and by example. I form partnerships with families, health-care providers and community agencies. I am also a health screener by performing mandated screenings for vision, hearing, scoliosis, height and weight. I am always an advocate for students, families and members of the school community. Pr evention is an important aspect of my job, especially during flu season. The Centers for Disease C ontrol recommend a y early flu vaccination as the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. The U.S. 2010-11 seasonal influenza vaccine will protect against an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus, and the 2009 H1N1 virus. The CDC recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older get the 2010-11 flu vaccine for this upcoming season. Flu v accines are available at W algreens, CVS, Publix as w ell as other local pharmacies. M any insurance companies cover the flu vaccine with no co-pay required. The Pine School's Stuart campus had a successful flu clinic on Sept. 27 in conjunction with Walgreens, in which 25 faculty members we re immunized. This was actually a fun clinic to hold and an important one, as the health of our faculty and our student body is imperative to the learning process. I urge everyone to get a flu shot this season. And remember, moms, O ctober is breast cancer awareness month, so don't forget those mammograms. C andy Martin is a nurse at The Pine School.Organizations ask schools to go greenTREASURE COAST Schools are the most potentially productive, yet often-overlooked, sources of recycling and conservation in any community. Ev ery year, schools produce millions of tons of waste that can either be r ecycled or reused, from paper to discarded cafeteria food. How ever, the George L ucas Educational Foundation's Edutopia website's poll reveals 74 percent of the 118 schools participating in its online poll www.edutopia.org/poll-does-schoolr ecycle have either limited r ecycling programs or none at all. "W e encourage all public and private schools to have r ecycling programs for office paper, classroom paper, aluminum cans and plastic water and sport drink bottles," said Dawn Mc Co r mick, community affairs manager for Waste M anagement. Office and classroom paper recycling can be as easy as equipping every classroom with a receptacle for used paper that's collected separately from other garbage. "R ecycling aluminum cans and plastic water and sports drink bottles in the cafeteria requires only a small effort and is already done in thousands of schools across the country. Once the kids get into the spirit, it takes on a life of its o wn," she said. T eachers can also prepare environmentally themed classroom projects using the many resources on the We b, covering everything from recycling to reducing consumption to buying products made of recycled materials. DoSomeThing.org provides a step-by-step plan for starting a school-wide recycling program that describes all of the internal and external issues a recycling committee would have to consider to start recycling. It s related site, earth911.org, gets into fun, innovative conservation programs, such as how to travel to a prom green style. W aste Management offers www.ThinkGreen.com/clas sroom, a K-12 resource in partnership with Discovery E ducation. C omplete with standardsbased lesson plans, videos, interactive activities and think green resources to engage students and extend the learning to the home, www.ThinkGreen.com/clas sroom is a suite of tools for educators seeking new materials to enliven envir onmental lessons. T eachers of children in grades K-5 will find r esources to help them answer almost any question about the three Rs: reducing, reusing and recycling. Pa r ents can help schools achieve their recycling goals by r educing the amount of consumables that children bring to school in their lunch boxes and by buying environmentally friendly school supplies. F or example, kids who bring their own lunches can cut waste by packing them in washable, reusable bags instead of disposable bags and bringing water in refillable bottles. If parents are worried about losing refillable bottles, buy one with a cap that can be clipped to a lunch bag. U sing whole fruits and vegetables as snacks, rather than packaged items, and r eplacing sandwich bags with reusable sandwich-size containers, also can contribute to making lunches more environmentally friendly.

Fr om msnbc.msn.com : Mo rg ue ready in case bodies come back to life Officials in a rural city in eastern Turkey, responding to an ancient local fear of being buried alive, have equipped the local morgue with the latest gadgetry in case any of the bodies stored there have been declared dead by mistake. Alarms and electronic motion detectors in the mortuary in Malatya will detect the slightest movement by a living person emerging from a coma or long period of unconsciousness. The 36 refrigerators will be fitted with interior door handles to allow their occupants to climb out of their coffins and open the doors, Akif Kayadurmus, head of the municipal funerals service, told the state news agency Anatolian. The device detects even the slightest movement and sends out an alarm," K ayadurmus said. "We also placed a system at the feet of the deceased that opens the refrigerator in case of contact. The resurrections may be rare, but we have taken every possibility into account." The morgue will also have a lounge, cafe and digital information panels to allow mourners to follow the washing and wrapping of the dead in accordance with Is lamic tradition. Fr om utahundierun.com : Thousands run in underw ear to protest Utah laws Thousands of people stripped to their underwear and ran through Salt Lake City to protest what they called the "uptight" laws of U tah. U ndie Run organizer Nate Po r ter said the goal of the event was to organize people frustrated by the conservative nature of the state's politics. N udity was prohibited by organizers. Participants donned bras, panties, nightgowns, swimwear or colorful boxer shorts, and some added political messages by expressing support for causes, such as gay marriage, on their chests, backs or legs. S alt Lake City is the home of the Mormon church, which is a vocal opponent of gay marriage. Po r ter estimated 3,000 people participated in the r un, which began in downtown Salt Lake City and circled past the state capitol building about a mile away.

MARTIN COUNTY Girl Scouts in Martin County will be holding a major food drive on Oct. 8, moving this annual event to the autumn to fill in a gap before holiday food drives begin. The Girl Scouts food drive is in its 17th year and has traditionally been held in the late spring to help stock the House of Hope food pantry for the great number of people affected by seasonal layoffs or cutbacks during the summer. How ever, with grocery stores, schools and the N ational Association of Letter Carriers now holding major springtime food drives, the big dip in food supplies comes later. The shelves at House of Hope food pantries are getting bare now in late summer/early fall, before many area food drives begin in preparation for Thanksgiving. On Oct. 1, Girl Scouts distributed 8,000 door hangers throughout the county, asking people to leave bags of nonperishable food on their doorsteps for pick-up on O ct. 8. The Girl Scouts will gather the food and deliver it to House of Hope. The types of food items needed include canned tomato products, fruit, vegetables, soup, beans, canned or powdered milk, canned meat and fish, cereal, rice and pasta. The drive is supported by the 800 Girl Scouts in Martin C ounty, troop leaders and parents. Patrick Exterminating, The Day Agency, the Pr int Shop of Hobe Sound and an Angel Fund are the financial sponsors. Those who cannot provide food but can help financially can contribute by sending a check to House of Hope (with a memo indicating "Girl Scouts Food Dr ive"), 2484 S.E. Bonita St., S tuart, FL 34997. The Girl Scouts are asking that gated communities take part bringing donations to House of Hope on behalf of the drive. The main House of Hope location, at the corner of D ixie Highway (A1A) and B onita Street in Stuart, will be open 9 a.m. to noon on O ct. 8. H ouse of Hope is the largest provider of food to the hungry in Martin County. In 2010, the agency gave out more than 152 tons of food, the equivalent of about 237,000 meals.

Hello smart shoppers, Let's have a kids' H alloween party and choose a kid pleaser: American chop suey or chili mac. Top off the meal with homemade candy; how good can it get? Y ears ago, my mom tried a casserole in a restaurant in W estchester County, New Yo rk that she enjoyed so much she duplicated it at home and it became another family favorite. Y ears later when we lived in Connecticut, my daughter Kim's Girl Scout troop had a pot-luck supper. What better dish to bring than chopped meat and elbows? W ell, you guessed it. There we re eight similar casseroles. Apparently the dish originated in New England and was called American chop suey. S hortly after that, I invited a new friend who had just moved from New Jersey ov er for dinner, and served the same thing. "Oh, you made goulash!" There the only difference is the addition of cheese. Seems like this dish is a national favorite. I will give you the recipe with and without the cheese. Remember, by using fresh-ground, low-fat meat y ou will have a "good-foryo u" meal. AM AM E E R R I I C C AN AN C C H H O O P S P S U U E E Y Y Ser Ser ves 4 to 6 ves 4 to 6 1 pound ground beef 1 medium onion and 1/2 small green pepper, chopped 1 tablespoon parsley flakes One 8-ounce can tomato sauce S alt and pepper to taste A little less than 1/2pound elbow macaroni plus 1/2-cup grated cheddar cheese OR One 7-ounce package macaroni and cheese Br o wn meat in a large non-stick skillet or pot. If y ou use virtually "fat-free" fresh ground beef you may have to treat the skillet with cooking spray since there will be no fat. If you used any other ground beef, drain the fat from the pan. A dd onions and green pepper and continue browning. Add tomato sauce, 1 can of water, salt, pepper and parsley. Cover and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes. M eanwhile cook the macaroni in boiling water only til firm. Drain and add to cooked meat mixture. Co ver and cook over low heat until macaroni is tender. Add more water if necessary. If you're making goulash, add the cheese, mix thoroughly and serve. NOTE: Be sure to check all brands of packaged macar oni and cheese, especially store brands. Check the fat and cholesterol content, y ou will be very surprised at the differences. C C H H I I LI-MA LI-MA C C (N (N I I B) B) Ser Ser ves 4 to 6 ves 4 to 6 Chili powder and cayenne are hot so a very little goes a long way. I will give you the minimal amount. Add more, to taste, as you wish. 1 pound ground beef 1/2-cup chopped onion 1 large clove garlic, chopped 1/2-small green pepper, chopped 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4-teaspoon chili powder Da sh of ground cayenne (optional) 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon parsley flakes 8-ounce can tomato sauce 1 can water or beef broth One 14-1/2 ounce can pinto beans with liquid (optional) S alt to taste A little less than 1/2pound elbow macaroni 1/2-cup grated cheddar cheese Br o wn meat in a large non-stick skillet or pot. If y ou use virtually fat-free, fresh ground beef, add 2 tablespoons canola oil. If y ou used any other ground beef, drain the fat from the pan. Ad d vegetables and continue browning. Add r emaining ingredients except macaroni and cheese. Cover and cook over low heat for about 1 hour. M eanwhile, cook the macaroni in boiling water only til firm. Drain and add to cooked meat mixture. Co ver and cook over low heat until macaroni is tender. Add more water if necessary. Stir in cheese.

The South Fork Bulldogs c ame away with the 46-25 victory.Mitch Kloorfain chief photographer Mitch Kloorfain /chief photographerJohn Russo of Jensen Beach High School couldn't keep South Fork High School fullback Dalton Pollock from squeezing over the goal line to score in the second quarter.

The game was suspended due to an electrical failure and has been tentatively rescheduled to take place in Okeechobee on Oct. 10.South Fork offense explosive in 48-25 win over Jensen BeachMARTIN COUNTY S outh Fork Coach Dennis Lavelle has stressed to his team the importance of getting off to fast starts. The Bulldogs did just that against crosstown rivals J ensen Beach last Friday night. Led by an explosive offense that scored three touchdowns on its first three possessions of the game, S outh Fork upended the Falcons 48-25 at Falcons Stadium. "W e' re struggling defensively and we needed that cushion to keep us ahead," Lavelle said. "We're trying to get better defensively. We've got a tremendous offensive team." B ulldogs quarterback C ody Labanowitz, who r ushed five times for 105 yards and a touchdown and passed for 86 yards and another score, led a balanced offensive attack that r acked up 388 yards of total offense. "T hey're good players," Lavelle said of his offense. "T hey're tough kids and good athletes. They listen and they're coachable, which is everything you want." A few weeks ago, Falcons C oach John Fey pointed out that his team needs to play consistently for an entire game to avoid falling into a hole in the first half, which is exactly what happened against the Bulldogs. J ensen Beach's defense struggled to stop South Fork and their offense failed to convert, which left the Falcons trailing 26-3 at halftime. The biggest thing is we just have to grow up," Fey said. "We have to realize this is Friday night and this is still football. Our youth is catching up with us a lot. We have to learn to overcome adversity as a team." The Falcons offense r oared to life in the second half, led by sophomore quarterback Alex Ogle. Ogle completed 17 of 31 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns and a rushing touchdown. B ut that first-half deficit proved too big to overcome in the end. "I t boils down to being mentally prepared and being able to overcome adversity. As a team, we're still learning how to win." Up next: Palm Beach Lakes at South Fork, Friday, 7 p.m.; Jensen Beach has a by e week.OutF rom page B9 See OUT, B12 Rushing for the scoreBy Alyssa BarbieriF or Hometown News

We are all familiar with the phrase, "buyer beware." Lately, I've been hearing that phrase, along with, "If it's too good to be true" W ith our economy struggling along, many of us have had to find ways to cut corners and make ends meet. Maybe you've stopped eating out as often. Pe r haps you're picking up the store-brand toilet paper instead of your favorite national brand, or you're buying New York strip steak instead of porterhouse. F or many golfers, it has meant playing less and trying to find bargains when it comes to equipment. This is where things have gotten ugly over the past year. Lately, not a week goes by without me hearing from friends in the business that someone sent them a club that turned out to be counterfeit. Usually the club broke during the course of play and its owner wants it r epaired or replaced in accordance with the company's warranty. The sad moment comes when the golfer finds out that his or her club is not one that was made by that company, it just looks like it and so it isn't covered at all. Thanks to the Internet, it's become quite easy to shop around for the best prices on not just golf stuff, but everything in general. The I nternet also allows buyers and sellers to operate in r elative anonymity. Many are from foreign countries and not subject to the laws that individuals and companies are in this country. M any manufacturers get the bulk, if not all, of their equipment from foundries in the Far East. While this has lowered production costs, it has also exposed these companies to a lot of dishonest people. In these countries many have easy access to the molds and processes that go into making equipment. As a result, they often steal these items and sell them for next to nothing to companies that then make their own version of the same club at a fraction of the cost. They use cheap metals and include none of the technology that makes the "real" equipment perform well. They are basically made to look as aesthetically close to the r eal thing as possible. Golfers searching for a bargain are then reeled in like a fish on a hook. They suddenly see an ad or an auction where they can purchase the same set of clubs that a local store sells for $1,200 for just a fraction of the cost. I nstead of common sense kicking in and the buyer thinking that it's too good to be true, the buyer instead feels that the local store o wner is padding his pockets. Apparently, the temptation is too great for some. I'm here to tell you that the store owner's cost for the real product is much higher than the price the fakes are being sold for. What I find most amusing is that when one of these discount" clubs breaks, the same guy who refused to purchase from the local store, drops by to have the club repaired or sent in to the manufacturer. To those of you who do this, I must ask, why? Y ou could have made y our purchase through that same store. That very same store wanted to give you great service before, during and after your purchase. The store didn't make a single cent off your purchase through the Internet. No w you are counting on that store to fix your equipment. I'm writing this column for a couple of reasons. F irst, I want to warn golfers out there that there are a lot of counterfeit clubs on the Internet. They lack the exacting standards and quality that you expect from y our equipment and for the hard earned money you spend to get it. You need to be very wary of prices that are too good to be true. N ot all clubs on the I nternet are fake or cheap counterfeits. Many manufacturers have a link on their Web site that tells who distributes for them and who can be trusted. If you call them, they will even tell y ou what to look for and ask so that you aren't taken. S ome also have a link that tells you the "known" I nternet sellers to be wary of. S econd, I'm writing this to vent my displeasure with those of you who feel that local stores and the manufacturers should spend time and effort to help you out now that you've been taken by someone. You refused to give them your business when they would have helped you in every way possible. Now you want to give them a different kind of business. I nstead of spending more money for the real thing, y ou spent a lot less for what now amounts to nothing. Where's the bargain in that?

MARTIN COUNTY A $30,000 grant from the B ank of America Charitable F oundation to Indiantown N on-Profit Housing will help provide homes for low-income families. The money did immediate good, allowing the local nonprofit to qualify for another gift: matching funds from a challenge grant through the Community Foundation for Palm B each and Martin counties. W ith $60,000, I ndiantown Non-Profit H ousing will be able to provide rental homes for at least nine families for about three years, said Maureen M aureen Saltzer Gawel, vice president of McNicholas & Associates, a public relations firm representing the nonprofit. O ur communities are in a crisis. As unemployment continues to be an issue, families need more of the basics.A safe place to live is critical and hard to come by for struggling families, said Tammy Matthew, consumer market manager for B ank of America. That is why we are so pleased to provide I ndiantown Non-Profit H ousing with a $30,000 grant to assist their efforts in providing affordable r ental homes for local families. The group will help residents through Martin C ountys neighborhood stabilization program, which assists eligible residents who earn less than 50 percent of the areas median income. U nder the program, a family of four with a household income of up to $28,350 would be eligible to r ent a home for $709 per month or less under the program. A t that (income) level, even the reduced rents are a difficult hurdle, Ms. S altzer Gawel said. The B of A Foundation grant, coupled with the Community F oundation matching grant, will enable the program rents to be reduced An alert Martin County deputy nabbed two men later suspected of stealing items valued at more than $50,000 from a marina in St. Lucie C ounty, authorities said last week.

The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 is commonly known as M edicare Part D. It is the prescription drug component of Medicare and it is available to Medicare recipients who have Part A or Part B. While under the Medicare umbrella, Part D is more like traditional insurance. M edicare r ecipients must choose a plan, run by an insurance company. To do so, its necessary to find out which plans are available in your area and then compare the cost for the drugs you take. If you belong to Medicare Advantage, it may have a prescription benefit with it. If this sounds complicated, it is. If you do not take any prescription drugs, you might be tempted to skip Pa rt D. Howe ver, unless you have good drug coverage from a present or former employer, you will pay a penalty for not enrolling when you are first eligible. That penalty continues for as long as you have Part D.Choosing a planThose with access to a computer can find help at the Medicare website www.medicare.gov. It is a little daunting, but by indicating where you live and what medications you take, a list of plans available to you, with the premiums, will appear. You can compare them online. For further information, you can contact each insurer independently to make sure that the medications you take are covered and that you understand what the premiums and copays will be. The SHINE program is also useful for figuring out Part D. S tanding for Serving Health I nsurance Needs of Elders, SHINE is a state-wide volunteer-based program offering free Medicare and health insurance education, counseling and assistance. SHINE is administered in F lorida by the Department of Elder Affairs. SHINE volunteers can offer free, unbiased information on Medicare; Medicaid, the state-run program for those with low income; M edicare supplemental insurance or Medigap; longterm care insurance, prescription drug insurance or Pa rt D; and Medicare fraud. They can also assist lowincome beneficiaries in applying for extra help with prescription premiums. When the Medicare Part D benefit went into effect, in 2006, beneficiaries had to pay 100 percent of prescription drug costs after they r eached a coverage limit and until their drug expenses qualified them for catastrophic coverage. This was known as the infamous doughnut hole. P atty Guttu is assistant SHINE liaison for Indian River, St. Lucie and Martin counties. She noted some important changes to Part D in 2011. This year, if you are taking brand name drugs and y ou hit the doughnut hole, its 50 percent co-pay for the beneficiary, she said. B efore, it was 100 percent. F or generic drugs, the beneficiary pays 93 percent and Medicare picks up seven percent. The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Health Ca re A ct has made the doughnut hole less of a burden. Jeff Johnson interim state director of AARP Florida said that people who fall into the category will receive some relief. This year people who fall into the coverage gap will r eceive a 50 percent discount on their name-brand prescription drugs and a seven percent discount on generic drugs. The doughnut hole starts at $2,840 in covered prescription drugs costs and ends when the catastrophic coverage kicks in at $4,550. I n succeeding years, the discount will rise and by 2020, the doughnut hole will disappear entirely.

Wo rk started on the project on Sept. 26 and is set to last until the end of December. C onstruction crews will spend about three months building a reef on the northern tip of the small island, located about 1 mile south of the Stuart Causeway and east of Sewalls Point in the I ndian River Lagoon. W e ve tried shoreline stabilization with plants and mangroves, and have done five separate plantings, said Ga ry R oderick, Martin C ountys environmental quality manager. But the wave energy from storms and boat traffic is just too powerful to keep the shoreline stable. Thats why this new effort will build a wall of carbonate rock about two feet above the water levels at high tide. The reef will be 395 feet long and 20 feet wide and wrap around the islands most vulnerable point, its northern tip. Bar ges filled with construction material will travel about a mile from a staging area at the Ernest Lyons Br idge to the island during the project. C ounty staff said the goal is to cause as little disruption as possible to boat traffic and birds nesting on the island. Bi rd I sland is the areas only nesting area for wood stocks. Each year about 25 pairs of wood stocks flock to the island. The island is also among the states top 10 for nesting. Sinc e 1980, it has lost about 30 percent or about an acre of its shoreline. Grants from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Florida In land Navigation District, N ational Estuaries program, I ndian River Lagoon license plate program and Martin C ountys conservation lands impact fees helped pay for the project. O ur purpose is to block the wave action thats eroding the north end of the island, Mr. Roderick said. MARTIN COUNTY While some major bookstores have had to close their doors in recent months, one seller of used books has been thriving. Thanks to a crew of 15 volunteers, the Martin C ounty Library Systems bookstore now has a new look to accommodate its growing customer base. V isitors to Book Depot, the libraries used book store, at the B&A Flea Market, will have an easier time picking out bargains, thanks to volunteers who arranged the stores inventory of about 30,000 books alphabetically across two r ooms. W e rearranged things, moving thousands of books around to make it more user friendly and easier to operate, said E ddie Evans, a volunteer who manages the Book D epot. In tough economic times that have led to the demise of national chain bookstores such as Borders, the B ook Depot continues to attract thousands of customers drawn to its deeply discounted books, movies and music. Last year, the nonprofit store raised more than $70,000. All that money goes r ight back into the library and the Book Depot, Ms. Ev ans said. The used bookstore is the areas largest and gets its merchandise from the Mar tin County Library S ystem and donations. It sells childrens books for prices ranging from a dime to 50 cents, and paperbacks go for $1. Wor ks by popular fiction writers generally sell for about a fifth the price at other stores. P eople often come in here and buy a bag of books, and then theyll say thats the price of one book in a bookstore, Ms. Evans said. V olunteers in the Fr iends of the Library program run the store. This is a great community resource, said Diane To masik, a volunteer, who also works for House of H ope, a program that helps residents struggling to meet financial needs. B&A Flea Market is located at 2885 S.E.Federal H ighway,Stuart.Book D epot is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m.to noon,and Saturdays and S undays from 9 a.m.to 2 p .m.By Samantha Josephsjoseph@hometownnewsol.comLibraries used bookstore thrives in tough timesBy Samantha Josephsjoseph@hometownnewsol.com SearchingThe Search For Y our Car ENDSHERE!Martin County thru Ormond BeachClassified For That Perfect Car? www.hometownnewsol.com

so we figured if we could get people to start eating them, we might be able to do something about the population growth. Thats why his restaurant added lionfish to its menu in mid-September and is serving several recipes with the white fish. In one dinner entre, the chef braises the fish in brown butter, and then serves it with a Meyer lemon cream, arugula and parsnip puree. The first night Ians introduced the dish, the restaur ant sold out all 12 portions in about an hour. D emand isnt high for the native Indo-Pacific fish that found its way to local waters through the aquarium trade. The restaurant sells about 3to 8-pounds of lionfish per week, and customers often ask about the dangers r elated to the fishs venom. B ut only the fishs spines are venomous, and not its meat, Mr. Grutka said, and federal wildlife and area conservation officials encourage residents to eat lionfish to reduce the animals population. I t s not the same as the blowfish where the venoms on the inside and you have to be careful not to poison the meat, Mr. Grutka said. O nce its clean, theres no poison that you have to be worried about during consumption. The restaurants campaign comes as one Treasure Coast conservation group launched an education campaign about the fish. The Manatee Observation and Education Center in Fo rt Pierce is adding a lionfish display to teach residents about laws regarding the fish and encourage its consumption. Theyre carnivorous and prey on both adult and juvenile native species, such as grouper and spiny lobster. They eat anything and everything, and theres not much that preys on them, said Lesley Ryder, the Manatee Centers education coordinator. O ur concern is that our fisheries industry is going to be at risk. Low demand means the fish is expensive, retailing for about $26 to $28 per pound. B ut Mr. Grutka, who says Ia n s Tropical Grill is the only restaurant on the Treasure Coast to serve the fish, hopes to see a growing appetite for the underwater predator. I t s not something that people run around asking for yet, but the whole point is to start raising awareness, he said. Its a very delicious fish. People who like hog fish or most any snapper would love to eat this fish. Ia n s Tropical Grill is located at 1205 N.E.Dixie Highway in Jensen Beach.For more information,call (772) 334-4563.

Editors note: This is a list of arrests,not convictions, and all arrestees are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law. east 15th Terrace, Stuart, told investigators that he shot Mr. Hicks because Mr. H icks was choking his wife, Sar ah, 21. Rhonda Irons, director of media relations for the Sheriffs Office, said the incident was still under investigation and no charges were filed. Mr. Hicks went to the D iodato residence after the D iodatos placed a companionship ad that Mr. Hicks told authorities he found on Cr aigs List, a website that contains a variety of classified ads. Mr, Diodato said that Mrs. D iodato and Mr. Hicks discussed fees and what sexual acts that were to be performed, an incident report said. B ut when Mr. Diodato, who was initially inside a bedroom, came outside, Mr. H icks became upset, Mr. D iodato told authorities. Mr. Diodato told Mr. Hicks that he would go outside while Mr. Hicks had a 30minute session with his wife, he told authorities. When Mr. Hicks asked for a refund the amount was not specified in the report Mr. Diodato told him that that he needed to enjoy his time and give Sarah a chance to help him relax, the report said. At that time, Mr. Diodato r eported that Mr. Hicks grabbed him and tried to push him to the ground, while Mrs. Diodato jumped on Mr. Hicks back to get him off of her husband, the r eport said. When Mr. Diodato got free from a headlock that Mr. H icks put him in, Mr. Hicks gr abbed Sarah and started choking her, he told investigators. Mr. Diodato got a gun, r esulting in Mr. Hicks letting go of Mrs. Diodato and fighting with Mr. Diodato ov er the weapon, the husband told investigators. After Mr. Diodato threw the gun away from them, Mr. Hicks grabbed Mrs. D iodato and started choking her again, the husband r eported her. Thats when Mr. Diodato shot Mr. Hicks in the side, he told investigators. Mrs. Diodato told authorities that Mr. Hicks became angry that her husband was present and started punching her in the mouth and face. Mrs. Diodato was bleeding from the mouth when investigators arrived, the r eport said. This was not the first time that Mrs. Diodato had solicited men over the Internet who wanted companionship, the report said. Mr. Diodato told authorities that he and his wife had been using websites, such as Cr aigs List, to offer various males companionship with Sar ah for money, the report said. D aniel stated he protects Sar ah during these encounters by waiting outside to listen and make sure Sarah is not hurt. D aniel said that there are r ules for these encounters, such as the males being r equired to wear condoms and not being allowed to kiss Sarah, the report said.ShotF rom page A1

F or the past decade, we have had a choice between M icrosofts Internet E xplorer, Netscape and Fir efox. There have been other browsers available, such as the one that is built into AOL. Maybe you are a Mac user and use the S afari browser. F or the most part, Ive been using Firefox as my primary browser. Its not exciting, but its good. I get to surf the Web without many issues. Every now and again my browser crashes and I have to r estart it. But thats no big deal to me, considering how hard we push things these days. Its just the way things are. U ntil now, that is. A while back, Google introduced a new browser called Chrome. I didnt think too much about it when it was released, but I started seeing a ton of positive comments and thought I ought to check it out. After running it for a few months, I am impressed. The folks at Google have r edefined Web browsing in a way that makes it fast and secure, with a couple new features that I hadnt thought of. Chrome is free to download and use and free of any spyware or other nastiness. If youre interested in trying it, point y our browser to www.google.com/chrome and download a copy to y our desktop. After the download is complete, double click the downloaded file and let it install. Tell it to import all of your favorites and preferences and then let it r un. The first thing you will see is Chromes most visited page, which (after using the browser for a while) will fill up with thumbnails of your most frequently visited Web pages instead of just one start page like most other browsers. The second thing you may notice is the tabs are at the very top of the browser window instead of at the top of the Web page. What this means is that each tab you open also has its own address bar, and each page that is opened in each tab is essentially r unning in its own little world. In all the other browsers, we have one browser with each tab sharing the browsers resources. That means that as you open tabs, you use more r esources, making the browser slower and less stable as time goes on. W ith Chrome, each tab runs w ith its own r esources, meaning the browser stays fast and stable no matter how many tabs you open or close. Another feature I like is that it has its own task manager built in. This means geeks like me will be able to see what is going on in the background with Chrome and see what tab is using what. That makes troubleshooting problem Web sites a little easier. Another feature that is new to the world of browsers is Chromes incognito mode, which opens a window with no browser history, search history or cookies collected. This can be useful on shared machines. I invite you to download Googles new browser. Try it out for a bit and then send me an e-mail. Tell me what you think, and Ill share your comments here.

Slow the seasons downI just dont understand why stores are already putting out Christmas decorations. Halloween isnt even here yet, but instead of ghosts and goblins, there are elves and candy canes on the shelves. Why do we have to rush every thing? We are such a materialistic society. Theres no time to enjoy the fall because were already preparing for winter. I know, why dont we dress the little kids up as Santa for H alloween and give them Easter candy? That way, we can celebrate all of the holidays at once.F ood stamp fraudI have seen so many immigrants who have food stamps who should not have them. The problem is with the food stamp office. We are having bad times here, and they are giving money away. Then on top of that, people with food stamps are driving expensive cars and SUVs. Are they double-checking these peoples Social Security numbers? I thought food stamps were for Americans who need help until they get on their feet? Now it seems anyone from anywhere can get them. I see so many illegal immigrants get it now. Do all of these people get asked for their Social Security numbers so they can qualify? Or are they free to anyone? More on food stampsD id I just hear that right? People on food stamps might soon be able to buy fast food? Youve got to be kidding me. It s bad enough that I see them buying steak and lobster, but now they can buy tacos and burgers? Maybe if all we let them buy was fruits and vegetables, then the lazy SOBs would get off their behinds and get a job.Stop wasting waterI see my neighbors using their irrigation systems more than once a week on automatic settings, even at this time of year. Thirty years ago, the experts told us we have a limited supply of oil. We did virtually nothing. So if we are foolish about the use of water, expect the same result. K eep the parks openThis is regarding the closing of parks in the area. When one moves to an area, there are certain things that should be provided, such as schools and parks. I go to the parks at least four times a week. I enjoy seeing the kids playing and fishing. Ive been paying taxes in this area for 10 years now, and it makes me irate that something that Ive been paying for is being taken away from me without my opinion. What we need to look at is the management of the parks and the city. Thats where the problem begins and ends.Y outh need activitiesWe need more activities for the youth of the city. There is nothing for them to do, so thats why they are out there getting in trouble. The cops need help keeping them in line. The kids need more things to do to keep them occupied and out of trouble.Stand up to terrorismOn the presidents orders, an American-born member of al-Qaida was shot and killed. This man had no remorse or concern about the lives that this terrorist group has destroyed, yet some pacifists are saying that Obama didnt give this American a right to a fair trial and that he was unjustly killed. Since when have we become such a bunch of soft pansies? If we took this type of approach toward any and all that conspired to harm Americans and humans in general, Im willing to bet that these terrorists would back down. Got something to say?

L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Iwrote this column four y ears ago, but a recent incident made it very personal. Last Thursday, I re ceived a letter from the F lorida Highway Safety and M otor Vehicle Department. It said: This agency has re ceived information expressing concerns about y our ability to drive safely. P lease call the driver license office below to set up an appointment to take the vision, written, driving (in traffic) and hearing examinations. This came as a total surprise and I was very skeptical because Im in excellent physical and mental health. My vision, hearing and reflexes are more than adequate to drive a car. I have a safe driver stamp on my license and Ive never had a traffic accident. Im in the process of investigating this bizarre occurrence and my preliminary finding show that the FHSMV is not being forthright in their letter. In fact, letters are mailed to all Florida residents who turn 70 and renew their licenses online or by mail. After 80 these letters are mailed every other year. Testing based strictly by age is prohibited by law. Our legislators attempted to pass such a law but it was defeated by strong lobbying by the AARP. I will write a column on this when I have all the facts. Y ou may have read in the newspaper a couple of weeks ago about a 94-yearold man who hit a woman riding a bicycle. It wasnt the mans fault; the woman, in her 50s, r an a stop sign. They put the old man in jail overnight and he was given probation because he was driving with no license. It had been taken away because he failed his drivers test. He said he had to drive because he had to take his wife to the doctor and pick up medicine for her. There is another reason a lot of younger people dont seem to understand why this old man still owned a car. If y ou are one of these people, think back to the first time y ou ever drove a car. Think back to the time you owned y our first car. Can you recall that wonderful feeling of freedom? No longer did mom or dad have to take you to school, to work, to the store or to a friends house. Or, you didnt have to take the bus, the street car or impose on a friend who already owned a fr eedom machine. If you are a guy, do you r emember how you felt when y ou first picked your girlfriend up at her home in your very own car? I dont know about you, but I still feel a tingle when I think about it. I r eally cant think of a more memorable experience in any young persons life. Your first kiss is probably a close second (my first car was a 1951 Pontiac Chieftain and my first kiss was from Mary Ann Riggle during a spin the bottle game.) If you are one of those y ounger people who curse at that gray haired driver in front of you because she is driving too slowly, just r emember that she is probably a safer driver than y ou. N ewspapers like to feature stories of senior citizens having accidents and questioning their mental and physical faculties for driving, but insurance companies charge senior citizens lower premiums than you. That means they have fewer accidents and cause fewer injuries. A dmittedly, that is partly because we seniors drive fewer miles, but its also because most of us drive slower and more carefully than you. My U ncle Charlie died eight years ago. He was 94. My A unt Marion died within a year of Uncle Charlie. They lived in the same very modest, small house on V alencia Drive in West Palm B each for 50 years. But they always owned a Cadillac and it was always parked outside in their driveway. Up until the time they were in their late 80s, the highlight of their week was to take a S unday drive in their shiny C adillac. Uncle Charlie always drove. When his eyesight got too bad to drive, he still kept that Cadillac in their driveway, always clean and shiny. His eyesight was still good enough so that, from his rocking chair in his living room, he could see thatBUSINESSF or Hometown News newsfp@hometownnewsol.com ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A8

big Cadillac sitting outside (and so could his neighbors). My father died when he was 86 and he drove a P ontiac TransAm up until the very last. He had cataracts r emoved from both eyes and back then, you had to wear C oke bottle-style glasses to see after this operation. He had no peripheral vision and there were a lot of scrapes, dings and dents that appeared on both sides of that TransAm. Thank God he never had a serious accident. I saw dad every day and I would see that the dents and scratches were regularly r epaired. He always said he didnt know where they came from and I never questioned him about that. Maybe I was wrong, but I didnt have the heart to ask him not to drive anymore. I knew how important that car was to dad and I knew how devastating it would be to him if he couldnt drive anymore. At my Toyota dealership in Nor th Palm Beach, we have a lot of older customers. Its just the demographics of northern Palm Beach County. My average customer is 55 and I have lots of customers in their 70s, 80s and 90s. M aybe its because Im a senior citizen, too but I especially like talking to my older customers and Ive become personal friends with some. I can tell you from personal experience how important their cars are to them in their latter years. Dur ing your middle years when you have so much more going on in your life, y our car becomes more utilitarian and you take it for granted. But when you retire and your life is not as hectic y our car returns to the importance it had when you we re 16; your freedom machine. We r ecently leased a new C amry to one of our very good customers. This was the third car that she got from us ov er the last seven years and she had just turned 90. One of my managers, who has worked for me for 20 years and is a neighbor of hers, handled the lease. A bout a month after she took her new Camry home, her grandson learned of the transaction and demanded that we rescind the lease. When we spoke to our customer, she let us know that her grandson was very upset with her for leasing the car. He didnt think she should be driving a car anymore and that she wouldnt live long enough to make all the payments on a four-year lease. We offered to r efund all of the profit on the lease (about $850), but the grandson insisted that we take the lease car back. This would cost my company thousands because of the depreciation a car takes on as soon as it is titled as a used car. Y esterday afternoon my customers grandson and stepson visited me in my office. They continued to demand that I rescind the lease (only the leasing company, Southeast Toyota F inance can rescind the lease) and absorb the thousands in depreciation on 1-month-old used car. They suggested that I may have broken laws by exploiting the elderly and that if I did not succumb to their demands they would sue me. They had already called Toyota to complain about my actions. N ot so politely, I asked them to leave my office. This experience troubled me for the rest of the day and even last night and is what inspired this column. Now I understand why I was so angry at the actions of my customers grandson and stepson. They didnt seem to understand how much that car meant to their grandmother/stepmothers happiness and what an important thing her freedom machine was to her. I have to wonder how much of their ire was due to genuine concern for her or the potential financial impact on her estate. Her grandson told me that she had put only 1,500 miles on her last car and what does she need a new car for? He just doesnt get it. A new car is a lot more than just a way to get to the drug store. To a senior citizen its a source of pleasure, pride and comfort, knowing that its in their driveway for everyone to see and its there if they need it.

The deputy in Martin C ounty who caught the suspects in those thefts noted in his report that there have been a number of marine product r elated thefts, in which v an style motor vehicles have been utilized as instruments of the thefts in Martin County. He noted that about 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 24, he noticed a van pulling a boat stop by a fenced boat storage yard on Indian Str eet. The location is near where other thefts occurred, the deputy noted. After making a stop on the vehicle, the men in the van said they had found the items, the r eport said. B ut the deputy who was suspicious of the story arrested the men, the r eport said. Later, the information about the thefts was r elayed to the St. Lucie C ounty Sheriffs Office, which determined the items were stolen from the marina. An investigation is continuing as to whether the men were responsible for any similar thefts in Martin County, said Rhonda Ir ons, public information officer for the Martin C ounty Sheriffs Office. The thefts in St. Lucie C ounty on Sept. 24 involved burglaries to three vessels at Island D unes Club House & Mar ina, 8735 S. Ocean Drive. Thieves had taken outboard engine lower units, chart plotters, fishing poles and other items from the marina, the r eport said. The value of the thefts from the three vessels totaled $53,000, the r eport said. The report noted that at the time of the burglaries the vessels were raised above the water. This made it possible for the suspect(s) to r emove the lower units from the water, more than likely with the use of a boat in the water, the r eport said.L egislationF rom page A1 T om RooneyArrestsF rom page A1 StewartF rom page A7 GOT NEWS?CALLUSTODAY!

T wo-thousand eleven is a very big year for Baby B oomers. The very first group, those born in 1946, turn 65 this year. Some 10,000 a day will reach that milestone. Tur ning 65 has its rewards and one big one is Medicare, but dont expect your red, white and blue card to arrive on your doorstep. If you are not receiving Social Security but want Medicare when y ou turn 65, you have to apply. The enrollment period begins three months before your 65th birthday and continues three months after. M edicare is financed by a portion of the payroll taxes paid by workers and employers and, in part, by monthly premiums deducted from Social security checks. The program is divided into four parts: Part A, hospital insurance; Part B, Medical insurance including doctors visits and outpatient testing; Part C, M edicare Advantage; and Pa rt D, prescription drug coverage. J eff Johnson, interim state director for AARP Florida, said that each has a separate r ole. M edicare Part A and B are sometimes referred to as Or iginal Medicare, he said. M ost people have this. Its the traditional program run by the federal government. Original Medicare covers 80 percent of the cost of most services that you need, but does not cover the full cost of your care. Pa rt C is often referred to as Medicare Advantage and is an HMO. You must have Par ts A and B to enroll in Pa rt C. You receive all of y our health care services through a provider organization. The costs may be lower and there may be additional benefits, but you are usually required to use plan doctors and hospitals. The plan may have drug coverage. Pa rt D is the prescription drug coverage. It is provided by private insurance companies and you pay a premium as you would for any other insurance. H elping to sort of out these complexities is the SHINE program. Standing for Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders, SHINE is a state-wide volunteerbased program offering free M edicare and health insurance education, counseling and assistance. SHINE is administered in Florida by the Department of Elder Affairs. SHINE volunteers can offer free, unbiased information on Medicare; Medicaid, the state-run program for those with low income; M edicare supplemental insurance or Medigap; longterm care insurance; prescription drug insurance or Pa rt D; and Medicare fraud. S ome counties offer counseling by phone and others have counseling sites. The biggest change this y ear is changes to the Annual Enrollment Period, said J ennifer Vander May, SHINE liaison for Indian River, St. L ucie and Martin counties. Its al ways begun Nov. 15 and now its Oct. 15-Dec. 7. P atty Guttu, assistant SHINE liaison, noted other changes. S tarting in Jan. 2011, you can get an annual physical or wellness exam, she said. There used to be 20 percent co-pay, but now its free. In addition to the exam, many preventive screening tests are now covered, including flu shots, screening mammograms, prostate exams, cardiovascular disease screening, bone mass measurements, glaucoma testing and colorectal cancer screening. Some of the screenings may have limitations and include only those with a family history of a condition. M any Medicare recipients decide that while Medicare pays for a lot of care, there is still a substantial amount that is not covered. For example, under Part B, after the deductible for the year is met, you pay 20 percent of the amount Medicare approves for the service. That includes each doctors visit and test. S ome Medicare recipients decide to purchase a supplemental plan, often r eferred to as Medigap. These are sold by private insurers and are often advertised on television.Getting helpN avigating the Medicare shoals can be tricky and it is a good idea to plan. When youre about to celebrate your 65th birthday, its very important that y ou take the time to think through your Medicare coverage, said Dave Bruns, AARP Floridas communication manager. Sign up promptly and make sure y ou do your research on the options available to you. It can take a while to sort through this complicated issue and make the right choices, but you should take as much time as you need. There are many resources available to help make informed choices. The first, if you already receive M edicare, is the handbook, M edicare & You, sent to each r ecipient at the beginning of the year. It is particularly helpful in letting recipients about any changes in coverage and cost and the basics of what Medicare does cover. M edicare maintains a w ebsite, www.medicare.gov, which has the most up-todate information. Those without computers can call (800) 633-4227. The SHINE program is a great help in figuring out M edicare and its related parts. They can also assist in obtaining extra help with M edicare premiums for lowincome beneficiaries. To locate SHINE assistance in Florida, call the Elder Helpline at 1 (866) 684-5885. In Mar tin County, SHINE counselors will be doing onsite counseling at the Council on Agings new Kane Center later this year. For the time being, counseling is being done by phone. When someone calls, the Elder Helpline, if the call is SHINE-related, we get a r eferral, said Ms. Vander Ma y. W e call the client and schedule a meeting. We can take the information by phone or meet with them. Ms. Guttu noted that SHINE volunteers do M edicare education, as well, making presentations throughout the community about Medicare basics and changes. For more information, call the Elder Helpline. AARP offers information about Medicare, as well. V isit the Web site at www.aarp.org. You can find good information on basic M edicare. W ading your way through M edicare is a challenging task but its important to get the best information to make informed decisions. Da ve Bruns of AARP summed up why. After all, youve worked a lifetime for this benefit. M ake sure you get the most out of it.

The program worked so well that the following year, 27 more nurses were hired by the city. In 1909, the successful school nurse program expanded to Atlanta, B oston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and S eattle. School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances well-being, academic success and the lifelong achievement of students, according to the N ational Association of School Nurses. I am proud to be a member of NASN, as w ell as the Florida Association of School Nurses. As a school nurse, I am the provider of student health care. I must maintain clinical knowledge, understand the nursing process, assess health needs and provide care for acute and chronic health care problems. I must also be a health educator, by teaching and by example. I form partnerships with families, health-care providers and community agencies. I am also a health screener by performing mandated screenings for vision, hearing, scoliosis, height and weight. I am always an advocate for students, families and members of the school community. Pr evention is an important aspect of my job, especially during flu season. The Centers for Disease C ontrol recommend a y early flu vaccination as the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. The U.S. 2010-11 seasonal influenza vaccine will protect against an H3N2 virus, an influenza B virus, and the 2009 H1N1 virus. The CDC recommends that everyone ages 6 months and older get the 2010-11 flu vaccine for this upcoming season. Flu v accines are available at W algreens, CVS, Publix as w ell as other local pharmacies. M any insurance companies cover the flu vaccine with no co-pay required. The Pine Schools Stuart campus had a successful flu clinic on Sept. 27 in conjunction with Walgreens, in which 25 faculty members we re immunized. This was actually a fun clinic to hold and an important one, as the health of our faculty and our student body is imperative to the learning process. I urge everyone to get a flu shot this season. And remember, moms, O ctober is breast cancer awareness month, so dont forget those mammograms. C andy Martin is a nurse at The Pine School.Organizations ask schools to go greenTREASURE COAST Schools are the most potentially productive, yet often-overlooked, sources of recycling and conservation in any community. Ev ery year, schools produce millions of tons of waste that can either be r ecycled or reused, from paper to discarded cafeteria food. How ever, the George L ucas Educational Foundations Edutopia websites poll reveals 74 percent of the 118 schools participating in its online poll www.edutopia.org/poll-does-schoolr ecycle have either limited r ecycling programs or none at all. W e encourage all public and private schools to have r ecycling programs for office paper, classroom paper, aluminum cans and plastic water and sport drink bottles, said Dawn Mc Cor mick, community affairs manager for Waste M anagement. Office and classroom paper recycling can be as easy as equipping every classroom with a receptacle for used paper thats collected separately from other garbage. Recycling aluminum cans and plastic water and sports drink bottles in the cafeteria requires only a small effort and is already done in thousands of schools across the country. Once the kids get into the spirit, it takes on a life of its o wn, she said. T eachers can also prepare environmentally themed classroom projects using the many resources on the We b, covering everything from recycling to reducing consumption to buying products made of recycled materials. DoSomeThing.org provides a step-by-step plan for starting a school-wide recycling program that describes all of the internal and external issues a recycling committee would have to consider to start recycling. It s related site, earth911.org, gets into fun, innovative conservation programs, such as how to travel to a prom green style. W aste Management offers www.ThinkGreen.com/clas sroom, a K-12 resource in partnership with Discovery E ducation. C omplete with standardsbased lesson plans, videos, interactive activities and think green resources to engage students and extend the learning to the home, www.ThinkGreen.com/clas sroom is a suite of tools for educators seeking new materials to enliven envir onmental lessons. T eachers of children in grades K-5 will find r esources to help them answer almost any question about the three Rs: reducing, reusing and recycling. Par ents can help schools achieve their recycling goals by r educing the amount of consumables that children bring to school in their lunch boxes and by buying environmentally friendly school supplies. F or example, kids who bring their own lunches can cut waste by packing them in washable, reusable bags instead of disposable bags and bringing water in refillable bottles. If parents are worried about losing refillable bottles, buy one with a cap that can be clipped to a lunch bag. U sing whole fruits and vegetables as snacks, rather than packaged items, and r eplacing sandwich bags with reusable sandwich-size containers, also can contribute to making lunches more environmentally friendly.

Fr om insidebayarea.com : G eorgia Tech students take the Ton campus signs This college prank is brought to you by the letter T and the students at Georgia Tech. The letter T is disappearing from signs all over campus, costing the school more than $100,000 in rep airs. Officials at the school in A tlanta are asking students to knock it off. U ndergraduate President Elle Creel tells Fox 5 Atlanta the tradition of stealing the T off Tech Tower began in the 1960s.

Fr om msnbc.msn.com: Mo rg ue ready in case bodies come back to life Officials in a rural city in eastern Turkey, responding to an ancient local fear of being buried alive, have equipped the local morgue with the latest gadgetry in case any of the bodies stored there have been declared dead by mistake. Alarms and electronic motion detectors in the mortuary in Malatya will detect the slightest movement by a living person emerging from a coma or long period of unconsciousness. The 36 refrigerators will be fitted with interior door handles to allow their occupants to climb out of their coffins and open the doors, Akif Kayadurmus, head of the municipal funerals service, told the state news agency Anatolian. The device detects even the slightest movement and sends out an alarm, K ayadurmus said. We also placed a system at the feet of the deceased that opens the refrigerator in case of contact. The resurrections may be rare, but we have taken every possibility into account. The morgue will also have a lounge, cafe and digital information panels to allow mourners to follow the washing and wrapping of the dead in accordance with Is lamic tradition.

U ndie Run organizer Nate Por ter said the goal of the event was to organize people frustrated by the conservative nature of the states politics. N udity was prohibited by organizers. Participants donned bras, panties, nightgowns, swimwear or colorful boxer shorts, and some added political messages by expressing support for causes, such as gay marriage, on their chests, backs or legs. S alt Lake City is the home of the Mormon church, which is a vocal opponent of gay marriage. Por ter estimated 3,000 people participated in the r un, which began in downtown Salt Lake City and circled past the state capitol building about a mile away.

MARTIN COUNTY Girl Scouts in Martin County will be holding a major food drive on Oct. 8, moving this annual event to the autumn to fill in a gap before holiday food drives begin. The Girl Scouts food drive is in its 17th year and has traditionally been held in the late spring to help stock the House of Hope food pantry for the great number of people affected by seasonal layoffs or cutbacks during the summer. How ever, with grocery stores, schools and the N ational Association of Letter Carriers now holding major springtime food drives, the big dip in food supplies comes later. The shelves at House of Hope food pantries are getting bare now in late summer/early fall, before many area food drives begin in preparation for Thanksgiving. On Oct. 1, Girl Scouts distributed 8,000 door hangers throughout the county, asking people to leave bags of nonperishable food on their doorsteps for pick-up on O ct. 8. The Girl Scouts will gather the food and deliver it to House of Hope. The types of food items needed include canned tomato products, fruit, vegetables, soup, beans, canned or powdered milk, canned meat and fish, cereal, rice and pasta. The drive is supported by the 800 Girl Scouts in Martin C ounty, troop leaders and parents. Patrick Exterminating, The Day Agency, the Pr int Shop of Hobe Sound and an Angel Fund are the financial sponsors. Those who cannot provide food but can help financially can contribute by sending a check to House of Hope (with a memo indicating Girl Scouts Food Dr ive), 2484 S.E. Bonita St., S tuart, FL 34997. The Girl Scouts are asking that gated communities take part bringing donations to House of Hope on behalf of the drive. The main House of Hope location, at the corner of D ixie Highway (A1A) and B onita Street in Stuart, will be open 9 a.m. to noon on O ct. 8. H ouse of Hope is the largest provider of food to the hungry in Martin County. In 2010, the agency gave out more than 152 tons of food, the equivalent of about 237,000 meals.

Hello smart shoppers, Lets have a kids H alloween party and choose a kid pleaser: American chop suey or chili mac. Top off the meal with homemade candy; how good can it get? Y ears ago, my mom tried a casserole in a restaurant in W estchester County, New Yo rk that she enjoyed so much she duplicated it at home and it became another family favorite. Y ears later when we lived in Connecticut, my daughter Kims Girl Scout troop had a pot-luck supper. What better dish to bring than chopped meat and elbows? W ell, you guessed it. There we re eight similar casseroles. Apparently the dish originated in New England and was called American chop suey. S hortly after that, I invited a new friend who had just moved from New Jersey ov er for dinner, and served the same thing. Oh, you made goulash! There the only difference is the addition of cheese. Seems like this dish is a national favorite. I will give you the recipe with and without the cheese. Remember, by using fresh-ground, low-fat meat y ou will have a good-foryo u meal. AM AM E E R R I I C C AN AN C C H H O O P S P S U U E E Y Y Ser Ser ves 4 to 6 ves 4 to 6 1 pound ground beef 1 medium onion and 1/2 small green pepper, chopped 1 tablespoon parsley flakes One 8-ounce can tomato sauce S alt and pepper to taste A little less than 1/2pound elbow macaroni plus 1/2-cup grated cheddar cheese OR One 7-ounce package macaroni and cheese Bro wn meat in a large non-stick skillet or pot. If y ou use virtually fat-free fresh ground beef you may have to treat the skillet with cooking spray since there will be no fat. If you used any other ground beef, drain the fat from the pan. A dd onions and green pepper and continue browning. Add tomato sauce, 1 can of water, salt, pepper and parsley. Cover and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes. M eanwhile cook the macaroni in boiling water only til firm. Drain and add to cooked meat mixture. Co ver and cook over low heat until macaroni is tender. Add more water if necessary. If youre making goulash, add the cheese, mix thoroughly and serve. NOTE: Be sure to check all brands of packaged macar oni and cheese, especially store brands. Check the fat and cholesterol content, y ou will be very surprised at the differences. C C H H I I LI-MA LI-MA C C (N (N I I B) B) Ser Ser ves 4 to 6 ves 4 to 6 Chili powder and cayenne are hot so a very little goes a long way. I will give you the minimal amount.

If y ou use virtually fat-free, fresh ground beef, add 2 tablespoons canola oil. If y ou used any other ground beef, drain the fat from the pan. Ad d vegetables and continue browning. Add r emaining ingredients except macaroni and cheese. Cover and cook over low heat for about 1 hour. M eanwhile, cook the macaroni in boiling water only til firm.

The South Fork Bulldogs c ame away with the 46-25 victory.Mitch Kloorfain chief photographer Mitch Kloorfain /chief photographerJohn Russo of Jensen Beach High School couldnt keep South Fork High School fullback Dalton Pollock from squeezing over the goal line to score in the second quarter. Pollock would score again in the third quarter helping his team to a 46-25 in Jensen Beach Friday, Sept. 30. Kristen Repetti/intern photographerMartin County High School running back Herschel Hester rushes through a hole in the Okeechobee defense to score the only touchdown before the lights went out at Bob Collins Field on Friday, Sept. 30. Okeechobee trailed the Tigers 7-0 with 1:06 left in the first quarter. The game was suspended due to an electrical failure and has been tentatively rescheduled to take place in Okeechobee on Oct. 10.South Fork offense explosive in 48-25 win over Jensen BeachMARTIN COUNTY S outh Fork Coach Dennis Lavelle has stressed to his team the importance of getting off to fast starts. The Bulldogs did just that against crosstown rivals J ensen Beach last Friday night. Led by an explosive offense that scored three touchdowns on its first three possessions of the game, S outh Fork upended the Falcons 48-25 at Falcons Stadium. W e re struggling defensively and we needed that cushion to keep us ahead, Lavelle said. Were trying to get better defensively. Weve got a tremendous offensive team. B ulldogs quarterback C ody Labanowitz, who r ushed five times for 105 yards and a touchdown and passed for 86 yards and another score, led a balanced offensive attack that r acked up 388 yards of total offense. T heyre good players, Lavelle said of his offense. T heyre tough kids and good athletes. They listen and theyre coachable, which is everything you want. A few weeks ago, Falcons C oach John Fey pointed out that his team needs to play consistently for an entire game to avoid falling into a hole in the first half, which is exactly what happened against the Bulldogs. J ensen Beachs defense struggled to stop South Fork and their offense failed to convert, which left the Falcons trailing 26-3 at halftime. The biggest thing is we just have to grow up, Fey said. We have to realize this is Friday night and this is still football. Our youth is catching up with us a lot. We have to learn to overcome adversity as a team. The Falcons offense r oared to life in the second half, led by sophomore quarterback Alex Ogle. Ogle completed 17 of 31 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns and a rushing touchdown. B ut that first-half deficit proved too big to overcome in the end. I t boils down to being mentally prepared and being able to overcome adversity. As a team, were still learning how to win. Up next: Palm Beach Lakes at South Fork, Friday, 7 p.m.; Jensen Beach has a by e week.OutF rom page B9 See OUT, B12 Rushing for the scoreBy Alyssa BarbieriF or Hometown News

We are all familiar with the phrase, buyer beware. Lately, Ive been hearing that phrase, along with, If its too good to be true W ith our economy struggling along, many of us have had to find ways to cut corners and make ends meet. Maybe youve stopped eating out as often. Per haps youre picking up the store-brand toilet paper instead of your favorite national brand, or youre buying New York strip steak instead of porterhouse. F or many golfers, it has meant playing less and trying to find bargains when it comes to equipment. This is where things have gotten ugly over the past year. Lately, not a week goes by without me hearing from friends in the business that someone sent them a club that turned out to be counterfeit. Usually the club broke during the course of play and its owner wants it r epaired or replaced in accordance with the companys warranty. The sad moment comes when the golfer finds out that his or her club is not one that was made by that company, it just looks like it and so it isnt covered at all. Thanks to the Internet, its become quite easy to shop around for the best prices on not just golf stuff, but everything in general. The I nternet also allows buyers and sellers to operate in r elative anonymity. Many are from foreign countries and not subject to the laws that individuals and companies are in this country. M any manufacturers get the bulk, if not all, of their equipment from foundries in the Far East. While this has lowered production costs, it has also exposed these companies to a lot of dishonest people. In these countries many have easy access to the molds and processes that go into making equipment. As a result, they often steal these items and sell them for next to nothing to companies that then make their own version of the same club at a fraction of the cost. They use cheap metals and include none of the technology that makes the real equipment perform well. They are basically made to look as aesthetically close to the r eal thing as possible. Golfers searching for a bargain are then reeled in like a fish on a hook. They suddenly see an ad or an auction where they can purchase the same set of clubs that a local store sells for $1,200 for just a fraction of the cost. I nstead of common sense kicking in and the buyer thinking that its too good to be true, the buyer instead feels that the local store o wner is padding his pockets. Apparently, the temptation is too great for some. Im here to tell you that the store owners cost for the real product is much higher than the price the fakes are being sold for. What I find most amusing is that when one of these discount clubs breaks, the same guy who refused to purchase from the local store, drops by to have the club repaired or sent in to the manufacturer. To those of you who do this, I must ask, why? Y ou could have made y our purchase through that same store. That very same store wanted to give you great service before, during and after your purchase. The store didnt make a single cent off your purchase through the Internet. Now you are counting on that store to fix your equipment. Im writing this column for a couple of reasons. F irst, I want to warn golfers out there that there are a lot of counterfeit clubs on the Internet. They lack the exacting standards and quality that you expect from y our equipment and for the hard earned money you spend to get it. You need to be very wary of prices that are too good to be true. N ot all clubs on the I nternet are fake or cheap counterfeits. Many manufacturers have a link on their Web site that tells who distributes for them and who can be trusted. If you call them, they will even tell y ou what to look for and ask so that you arent taken. S ome also have a link that tells you the known I nternet sellers to be wary of. S econd, Im writing this to vent my displeasure with those of you who feel that local stores and the manufacturers should spend time and effort to help you out now that youve been taken by someone. You refused to give them your business when they would have helped you in every way possible. Now you want to give them a different kind of business. I nstead of spending more money for the real thing, y ou spent a lot less for what now amounts to nothing. Wheres the bargain in that?
