Stuart 772-221-0122 Mon-Fri 9:305:30 Sat 9:303:00 BartonsJewelers, LLC MARTIN COUNTY The event that has become a key part of area V eterans Day celebrations will this year pay special tribute to some of the soldiers who served this country. In addition to fighter jet, aerobatic and parachuting displays, the Stuart Air Show will also honor some of the military's finest assets: its servicemen and women. Organizers will set up a "living legends" tent for about 40 members of the 8th Air Force and Women Air Force Service Pilots, who talk about their experiences in World War II. Their veterans' presence will serve a dual purpose, as they will also r aise money for Honor F light, a nonprofit that takes World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorial built there in their honor. "I t' s a great way to bring everything together," said Be verly Jones, a publicist promoting the Nov. 12-13 event.

W oman accused of misusing 911 Whether being harassed constitutes an emergency that would justify calling 911 may be determined on a case-by-case basis. One local woman found out her case didn't fit that qualification when she r epeatedly called 911 saying she was being harassed.

A T&T U-verse is carrying the signal, and the county is using a piece of equipment it already owned to allow the service, said MCTV 20 station manager David Graham. The station's still called MCTV 20, most likely because it's been available on Comcast channel 20. B ut AT&T U-verse subscribers can now access it on channel 99. "W e' ve had a number of people calling asking why they couldn't get MCTV on U-verse," Mr. Graham said. "We found it was possible to get it to them."

Kenzie Award for management program or creative partnership from the Florida Redevelopment Association, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to community revitalization efforts. It won from more than 60 entries. Through a lot of hard work, successful partnerships and local support, these projects are completed and have helped to r ebuild that community in some way," said Kurt Easton, president of the Florida R edevelopment Association. The CRA worked with several local nonprofits to organize the event. Its partners included Keep Martin B eautiful, the East Stuart M ain Street program, Habitat for Humanity of Martin C ounty, city of Stuart sanitation department and Habitat Angel, a church-based group. "W e were very excited because we're a small municipality. We're often competing against much larger CRAs with more dollars and more opportunities," Ms. Lamar-Sarno said. "W e definitely couldn't have done it without our partners." The group invested less than $7,000, and raised about $18,700 in cash, equipment, materials and other donations from public and private sector organizations. Organizers said the effort was so successful they plan to make it an annual project. The project renewed community pride and invested residents in maintaining the improvements," Ms. Lamar-Sarno said. "It was a very good day. It worked well." r esisting an officer without violence. A Martin C ounty deputy obtained permission from Ms. Dav is for permission to search her purse and discovered the contents included several wallets and makeup bags. The deputy contacted a woman whose driver license was in the purse and she told him about the theft from the cemetery, the r eport said. She also told him one of her credit cards had been used at a gasoline station in Miami. Ms. Davis told deputies several different stories, the r eport said. One was that the purse belonged to her cousin, who rented the vehicle that she was driving. But at the time of the traffic stop she claimed the vehicle was r ented by her niece, the r eport said. S he also changed her story regarding the purse, the report said. Ms. Davis told the officer her story about the purse belonging to her cousin was a lie and that she had bought it from a "jit," (a y oung person), the report said. When she bought the purse for $5, it was empty, she told deputies. The report didn't say whether the purse belonged to the Miami woman who had her purse stolen at the cemetery. It said that investigators were trying to contact at least one other person whose name was found on checks in the purse.PurseF rom page A1F aceliftF rom page A1 B. Davis

Michael Dougherty we re headed to work on a Ma r tin County case the evening of Oct. 24 when they saw a man walking down U.S. 1, Detective Sirmans recalled last week. The man looked like Leviticus Uriah Taylor, 25, who had escaped that morning from the Indian River County jail, along with R ondell H. Reed, who was awaiting trial on a firstdegree murder charge. Earlier, Stuart Police stopped a car in which it is believed Mr. Taylor was a passenger, but let it go, as at that time, they had no information about the escape, said Officer Mike Pope, spokesman for the Stuart P olice Department. Mr. Taylor had been convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Nestor Pe re z of Vero Beach in 2009. The man in Stuart walking down the street hours after the Stuart Police stop was wearing a horizontally striped shirt and matched the description of Mr. Taylor, Detective Sirmans said. They got a closer look at the man "and at that point, we got out of our vehicle and conducted a field interview," Detective Sirmans said. Although Mr. Taylor was apparently not lucky in having been spotted, he told the deputies his name was L ucky McIntosh, the detective said.

U nfortunately, the article was right on target, and we are finding that this is a more widespread problem than most F loridians realize. The key to combating this crime is to be aware and armed against scammers looking to score an easy payout. In an effort to arm F lorida's consumers with the tools they need to protect themselves from ID theft, my department has put together an ID theft presentation which can be found on our consumer services website at www.MyFloridaCFO.com/c onsumers .I t provides tips and resources to help F loridians keep from becoming a statistic. We are also pursuing every angle, through my D ivision of Insurance Fr aud, to put the criminals who perpetrate these crimes behind bars. In fact, our investigators r ecently cracked a case in which 115 individuals we re found using one teenager's Social Security number to gain employment, and we have several other big cases in the works. There are many ways y our identity can be stolen, but it's important to know that it doesn't always involve a stranger.

J eff Atwater is Florida's chief financial officer.Arming Florida's consumers to fight ID theft Question all chargesWhen reviewing my September AT&T statement, I found and questioned a small $3 (plus 26 cents tax) item, charged to my account. It was for a "three-way call," to what happened to be our family doctor's office telephone number, a routine call for an office appointment. I explained to the customer service person it was not a three-way call. I have never had occasion to make a threeway call, much less, ever subscribed for three-way call service. W ithout any explanation, I was told an offsetting credit to rectify the error would be made to my account immediately. He re 's a tip: always verify questionable charges, regardless how small they may seemto be. High wages, low productivityIf y ou ever wonder why the federal government perpetually wants more money and why your taxes are always going up, look at government salaries. In addition to lavish benefits and liberal pensions, the average salary for Washington bureaucrats is (hold on to y our hat) $126,000 per year. The District of Columbia doesn't produce anything, except hot air, but is the richest area in the nation. Go figure. Salaries too highThere's a report that the average salary for federal government employees is $126,000 per year, and if that is true, we taxpayers are sure a bunch of foolish rubes. They are supposed to be public servants, but who ever heard of a public servant, or any kind of servant, getting $126,000? Schools need changeEv en some Democrats are starting to realize that our public schools are failing our kids and that spending more money on a poor system is a waste. In the inner cities, education, in terms of academics, violence and finances, is worse now than after several y ears of increased subsidies. Only half of the pupils meet state goals in reading and math, but the teachers' union r emains locked into the same old procedures and techniques of the past and is adamantly opposed to changes. No new stadiumP oliticians are unwilling or unable to listen to their constituents. The last three years have been tough for the average American, but very little has changed at our nation's capitol. While we tighten our belts, politicians are considering a multi-million grant to subsidize a new football stadium for the Minnesota Vikings. Talk about wasteful and unnecessary spending! There is a huge disconnect between Martin County and W ashington, D.C. Build bridge hereF igure this out.More than any other issue, politicians pontificate on the subject of jobs for the U.S. At the same time, they arranged for a huge bridge over the San Francisco Bay to be fabricated in China and shipped to California, costing us thousands of American jobs. The $12 billion project was a magnificent opportunity to create good paying American jobs at a time of high unemployment. President Obama did nothing to save the situation. Opportunity lost. Jail a solution?I have a real solution for me and others who can't afford to pay for their house, buy food for the family, make car payments, pay for health insurance, etc. Lets commit a crime, go to prison and get the free best medical care, education, three meals a day, free housing, have your attorney's fees paid for by other people's tax dollars and complain about the horrible treatment we get, sue the state and win thousands to send to our families. Rick Scott, I hope you're reading this. I'm fed up with the system that's in place now. S ystem is a jokeHe re in Florida, people who violate domestic-violence r elated restraining orders are usually treated leniently by the courts. Those charged can often secure their freedom by posting a small amount, giving them little incentive to appear, as required. Lax treatment makes Florida's legal system a pathetic joke. All talk, no actionWe 'v e heard a great deal of talk from our president about the need for more jobs for American workers; a great deal of talk but very little action. It would be nice to hear about cutting back on government spending, something desperately needed during these hard times. All this talk by the president makes us wonder whether we're being jobbed, jobbed by our president. Got something to say?

The center is also the host of several annual events that boost the local economy. I ts Club 420 Midwinters r ace, for instance, slated for Fe b. 18-20, will likely draw about 150 competitors from across the state and country. Past races have generated about $71,000 for local businesses, as boaters dine out, book hotel rooms and visit local attractions. "W e' re very proud of our r egatta season," said Alan J enkinson, executive director. The season, which starts the first weekend in D ecember, includes seven nationally and state-recognized regattas. The first race, on Dec. 34, is the South Points No. 2, in which about 60 high school boaters race for the top spot. That same weekend, the J unior Olympics is set to attract between 150 and 200 boats, ages 18 and y ounger, organizers said. Fe w er than 10 percent of these boats will come from Ma r tin County, which means the rest will be visitors who spend money in the area. The following week, on De c. 10-11, the center will host the District 13 laser championship or D13, featuring between 70 and 90 laser sailboats. "W e really benefit the local economy, but not many people know it," Mr. J enkinson said. "The people in the hotels, they know what we're contributing, but the people in the r estaurants, they probably don't, even if they benefit from it." F act is, area residents don't even know the U.S. S ailing Center of Martin C ounty exists, much less that it generates business for the region. When he was the guest speaker at a recent meeting of a Palm City-based sailing club, Mr. Jenkinson was surprised to learn that many audience members had not heard of the Jensen B each center. "F ifty percent of the people didn't even know we existed. It boggles my brain," he said. "I guess the r eality is we're quietly sitting here. If you don't specifically make up your mind to find us or drive down Indian River Drive, y ou might not find us." The local company is one of four U.S. Sailing centers in the country. F ounded in 1992, it has operated at its current location at 1955 N.E. Indian River Drive, since 2002. The fact that we are even here is noteworthy," said Mr. Jenkinson. "But everybody has a misconception of why we're here. They think we're just for kids, or to teach sailing or just for high-end sailing. B ut my motto is we're for everyone." As nonprofit organization, the sailing center has a limited marketing budget. It relies heavily on volunteers, but has engaged widely in community outr each. The U.S. Sailing Center of Ma r tin County has reached out to several charitable organizations to support their members. It hosts the S amaritan Center for Boys and Families, ARC, or Ad vocates for the Rights of the Challenged and Access Sa iling and Kayaking. It is also invites residents to visit its waterfront amenities. "W e' re one of only four in the nation. Not coming by would be like living in a town that borders the Grand Canyon and never visiting it, or living here in S tuart and never going to the beach," Mr. Jenkinson said. Vi sitors can rent boats by the hour, take sailing lessons, purchase boating packages or become members. A dult memberships cost $395 per year for unlimited use of sailboats with no guest fees. Junior memberships are also available for children 18 and younger.

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.Idon't mean to sound like a broken record (or should I say defective audio chip) these days.This is the fourth article I've written on the subject of F lorida's dumb law (see www.DumbLaw.org) 322.126(2), (3). This is the law that allows any person" to report in confidence any Florida driver as being physically or mentally impaired and be held harmless from any civil or criminal liability even if it can be proven it was done with malicious intent. No one is a greater advocate than I for removing bad drivers from F lorida's roads. I see them daily and am convinced they are responsible for a large percentage of highway deaths, injuries, property damage and soaring insurance rates. B ut I'm also a strong advocate of the facts, that the end doesn't always justify the means and that everyone should be held accountable for their wrongful acts. Last Friday, I had a very productive meeting with state Rep. Irving Slosberg of F lorida's 90th district in B oca Raton. He impressed me very much with his openness to my suggestions. I conversed with him and his two aides for about 45 minutes.His office is at 9045 La Fontana Blvd, Suite 117. When I walked in the front door there was no one in the front office. I heard a dog barking in the back and Ir v came out with his dog, So ldier, a fine looking terrier, on a leash. He asked me if I like dogs and said, "V ery much." Soldier joined the meeting and anybody who loves dogs this much has to be a good guy.I also learned that I didn't even need an appointment because Irv Slosberg has an open door policy. Anybody who needs help can just walk into his office at any time. This is very rare for a politician and, before I left, I told Irv that we needed more guys like him in W ashington, D.C. Du r ing our conversation, he called one of the higher ups of the Florida Highway S afety and Motor Vehicle D epartment. This FHSMV person was aware of me and told Irv Slosberg that he was the fourth caller about the "E arl Stewart's problem." This person, not surprisingly, was not at all sympathetic to my position. He pointed out that the informants were not anonymous as I had incorrectly stated, but were only" confidential. He is exactly correct, there is a shade of difference between the definitions of confidential and anonymous. B ecause the FHSMV knows the name of the informant but won't tell anybody else, including the accused, the informant is confidential.Anonymous would mean that not even the FHSMV would know the name of the informant. Of course, the net effect is exactly the same because the informant is held harmless even if the motive for turning in a driver was purely malicious. It makes no difference if the FHSMV knows the identity of the informant if they will not tell anybody else, not the accused, his or her lawyer, the police or even a judge.And, if through a fluke, the identity was known and it could be proven the intent was malicious, the informer is held harmless from civil suit or criminal liability. Re p. Sl osberg was incensed when I explained to him why I believed that I knew the person who had informed on me did so for re venge and why I'm 99.9 percent sure that I know who he is. He agrees with me that this is the part of the law that must be changed. A person who takes it upon himself to try to have another's driving privileges revoked must be held accountable if this is done falsely and with malicious intent. How ever, Irv Slosberg did not think that my going public with my opposition to this bad law was a good idea. He felt that the more people who know about this law, the greater the potential for abuse. I have to agree with him that more awareness of this bad law will generate more abuse. But I can't agree that this justifies keeping quiet about it. In fact, if more people like me are willing to stand up and be counted, we may be able to expedite changes in this law. This law has been on the books too long, 17 years, and the reason it's been there so long is that people only became aware of the law when they fell victim to it. Most of the victims never r esponded to the letter from the FHSMV and continue to drive their cars, but now with no license and no F riday, November 4, 2011 A8 Martin CountyHometown News Keeping You Cool for over10 Years!€ Air Conditioning &Heating € Commercial &Residential € Sales Service Installation € Same Day ServiceLic. # CAC058508 Insured772-232-1114 No extra charge for 24 Hour Emergency including Nights Weekends Holidays759315 759330GRANADA PLAZA 2311 NW FEDERAL HWY STUART, FL 349941 MILE SOUTH OF JENSEN BCH BLVD772-692-2245SELLING & TRADING USED P APERBACK$5.00 STORE CREDIT WITH THIS AD, LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMERPLEASE STOP IN AND VISIT WHILE WE SET UP WELCOME TO COME IN AND GET ACQUAINTED.BOOKEXCHANGEOFSTUART R obert J.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY R obert J. Kulas attended a national conference in San D iego during October hosted by the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys to learn more about current estate planning matters and the inevitable impact those matters could have on clients. Mr. Kulas received training on financial and legal management systems, annuities and estate planning, veteran's aid and administration, and estate planning and digital assets. The academy is the premier national educational organization promoting excellence in estate planning by providing member attorneys with continuing education courses and events, and vital updates in estate, tax and business planning laws since 1993. Mr. Kulas focuses his practice exclusively on estate, legacy and elder law planning. "I attend the academy events because I recognize the importance of learning cutting-edge planning techniques and changes in the law that affect my clients," he said. "O ur primary focus at my firm is meeting the needs of our clients. Information provided to me at the academy events gives me the most fundamental tools I need to ensure the health of my practice so we can continue to work toward that goal." The law firm of Robert J.

They don't speak out because of the same reason they don't take the driving, written, hearing and eye tests: fear.Who wouldn't be afraid of even the remotest chance to lose their driving privileges?Why not gamble that a policeman will never stop you, especially since most people have never been stopped before, especially if you're a good driver. W ould you take a chance that some FHSMV bureaucrat may mistakenly fail y ou in some part of the test if you didn't have to? God knows government bureaucrats make lots of mistakes, we read and hear about them in the news every day. The letters from the FHSMV are mailed out r egular mail, not certified as they should be. Who's to say your letter wasn't lost in the mail? In fact, I'm certain that some letters are lost in the mail and some letters are accidentally thrown out, what with all of the junk mail we receive nowadays. This means that there are probably also lots of drivers without licenses that don't even know that their licenses are suspended. P lease sign my petition at www.DumbLaw.org N ext week, I will be taking my driving, written, eye and hearing tests and, of course, I will pass them all and retain my license. Don't sign this to help me, but sign this petition for those who can't or won't stand up because they're afraid. Sign this petition because this law is unAmerican because the state should not protect someone when they maliciously attack another by concealing their identity and shielding them from all civil and criminal liability.

It was in this room where I, along with the members of my planning committee, and founders of Av enue D, Earl and Mary H endricks, gathered together to hash out the details for a memorable concert. Ev ery year, like thousands of other schools across the U.S., TPS puts on our version of a winter/holiday concert. Students practice the familiar and not-sofamiliar songs that leave audience members in a joyful state of cheer, after seeing their kids perform the melodies that conjure up ideas of peace and brotherhood. I've always liked concerts like these. I've been an educator for 16 years, and a professional musician longer than that, and I have always enjoyed holidaythemed concerts. But this y ear is different. This year it's about "priorities." I found out about the Av enue D choirs last year, and after meeting Earl and Ma ry I knew that it was the beginning of something special. The fact that they are exceptional musicians themselves, people of great faith and inspiration would be more than enough to impress me. How ever, what's most impressive to me is that they affect the lives of children in such a phenomenal way. I asked them to perform at The Pine School's annual Ev ening of the Arts, which was held at the Lyric in Ap r il. It gave me goose bumps. They amazed every single person in the house that night. S till, I think I was even more amazed by their mission: to develop an excellent, well-disciplined boys choir, while equipping the young men with the personal, academic and social skills they need to attain success. Y ou see, I am in the education business. The r eason why I work at The Pine School is because I believe in the mission of the school: to promote academic excellence within a challenging, supportive and moral environment that fosters the development of mind, body and spirit. It became evident to me that there needed to be some kind of meaningful exchange between TPS and Av enue D. Nothing brings people together better than music. You see, I am also in the music business. There will be something simply electric and wonderful when this year's winter concert happens. This year, The Pine School's winter concert will be a benefit for the Avenue D. Bo y's Choir. All of the money raised will go to support the mission of Av enue D. N ot only will the audience be treated to music by The Pine School's premier performing ensembles, but they will hear worldr enowned, counter-tenor, T erry Barber, and the Av enue D Boys and Girls choirs, as well. Terry's involvement is made possible by his organization, Artists for a Cause, whose mission is to support community improvement. The theme this year is simple, "You raise me up," four little words that describe what can happen when we affect the life of a child in a positive manner. My goal has been, like Ma ry Earl and Terry, to do it through music. My station is here in Hobe Sound. Avenue D' s mission is in Fort Pierce. What may seem like a world away to some is nothing compared to the melody that connects us all. So it is with great pleasure, that I invite you to join us for an evening of music that you will not forget. It is an evening that will be fueled by the desire to affect lives. It is our chance to make an impact no matter how small or great on our y oung people. The concert will be held on Friday, Dec. 9 at 7p.m. at The Pine School, Stuart campus 1300 E. Tenth St Donation is $10 per family. Ma r cus D.Rabb is director of fine arts at The Pine School.V olunteer to be honoredMARTIN COUNTY P atty Stewart will be honored at the Kiplinger Literacy Award Luncheon on Feb. 6, at the Hutchinson Island M arriott. Thanks to the persistent efforts of Patty Stewart, the Library Foundation is working hard to raise the literacy r ate in Martin County from No 6 in the state to No. 1," said Leo Clancy, president of the Library Foundation of Ma r tin County. "P atty Stewart has worked tirelessly and diligently to provide a model program that will improve the serious deficiencies in reading, oral and written language comprehension and use of technology in the work places in Ma r tin County," said Betty M ulligan, the 2011 Literacy A ward recipient. These Martin County adult learners need basic and advanced educational skills to further their employment opportunities in our community. This program will enable the adult learner to reach their own personal and family goals, as well as to be productive and useful individuals." Ms. Stewart, a former fifth grade teacher, understands the difference literacy can make in one person's life and all the lives they touch in turn. She joined the Library Foundation board in 2007 because of the foundation's literacy initiative. S ince that time she has been the library's foremost advocate for literacy and has encouraged her friends and community members to join the cause. Ms. Stewart chairs the Literacy Network Initiative and has been involved in the Ki plinger Literacy luncheon since it started three years ago. "W e have so much to offer in Martin County in terms of community services. But r eading and writing needs to be the top priority in my opinion. There are about 15,000 people who cannot r ead and write and we want to reach and teach everyone of them," said Ms. Stewart. D ue to her leadership, the initiative has secured funding from the State Department of Education to establish four workplace sites. The goal is to reach over 750 individuals in the next 12 months. The Library Foundation of Ma r tin County, founded in 1992, provides enhancements to the Martin County Library System by funding special library projects and capital improvements. Donations support cultural and educational programming and provide new technology and materials for the collection. M embership levels begin at $35 for an individual.

N ews Channel 12. Scheme to get cash fails A man and a woman apparently tried to fish for some extra cash at a local W al-Mart, but their scheme led them down the creek without a paddle. A report states the man w ent into the store and switched some bar codes on some fishing poles so the poles would ring up cheaper. He bought the fishing poles that normally cost $212 for only $27. Then he exited and gave one of the fishing poles to the woman who tried to get a full refund. But she was denied that because previously she had written bad checks at the store. The pair was eventually arrested and sent to jail. I don't know,you tell me' A pparently, one local r esident thought police officers are telepathic or have the ability to predict the future. When the man wouldn't leave a motel, an employee called the police. A responding police officer asked the man what he was doing and he r eplied, "I don't know, you tell me." When asked if he was going to leave, the man r eplied, "I don't know, you tell me." The man eventually said he was waiting for a woman to pick him up, but when asked her identity, he r esponded, "I don't know, y ou tell me." W ell, the police officer apparently told him instead that he was being arrested and going to jail. M aybe you don't want MARTIN COUNTY A second Therapeutic Music D ay on Nov. 12, will follow the first successful event in Ap r il.

The students receive community service hours, an event day T-shirt, a certificate of appreciation from A4AC and a valuable performance opportunity where they can see the power of their art," he said. The teachers, those making their way as professional artists in our culture, receive an honorarium and recognition for their educational institutions.

Donated sneakers will be r ecycled into a padded playground floor, like the one on the playground at HSCCC, which was donated to the center by the residents of Lobllolly.

"W e know that we can easily reach 500 if everyone in the community looks in the closet and drags out that old grungy pair that no one else wants," said Ms. Noel. "W e want them. They'll help kids on a playground somewhere be safer and keep the shoes out of a landfill." To donate sneakers,drop them off at Hobe Sound Child Care Center,11580 S.E.

PORT SALERNO Jerry Sa ylor, a Port Salerno Little League coach, keeps his voice calm and his players focused during practices and games. The running, batting and throwing exercises they practice have already made a difference in their lives. Mr. Saylor's team recently played a game where the players were getting discouraged because they we re losing by a lot. Mr. S aylor encouraged them to cheer on their teammates, and the team started to come back. The main thing is that they work as a team," said Mr. Saylor. "My job as a coach is to teach them how to play the game, to help them out to get better." Little League has been helping shape boys lives since its inaugural season in 1939 across the nation. The Port Salerno Little League is a recent addition to this legacy. Mr. Saylor said his role as coach is to teach the players the rules and regulations of baseball and get the players to communicate effectively on the field. "I f they keep talking and encouraging each other, they become the coach," he said. "Being a coach to themselves helps them as a team that they can realize their own mistakes and how to improve." Mr. Saylor said playing Little League Baseball has a positive impact on the children as people and as players. Through Little League, the players get to make friends, build confidence and learn how to be good team players. They learn how to take direction positively and learn from their experiences. F amily involvement is a big part of the Little League experience. This season, there was a shortage on parent coaches in Po rt S alerno, but there was no shortage of players. Chris DiPiero, minor's league representative for the Port Salerno Little League, had the task of r ecruiting coaches. Mr. D iPiero played Little League as a child and is now aiding in the organizational process so his 11y ear-old son can do the same. There is no Little League without parent participation," said Mr. D iPiero. F allBall is a family exper ience, where parents and coaches support the players, and the players grow as a team. Mr. DiPiero said Little League positively affects the players because with every practice they build confidence and physical strength. The children have to learn how to win and how to lose," said Mr. DiPiero They have to build character." Pa r ents have the potential to play a major part in this experience. Mr. DiPiero's role as a minor league representative means he organizes the practices, recruits coaches, makes the teams and keeps communication open. In addition to this role, he is also a coach.

The Bulldogs (5-3, 4-0 D istrict 14-6A) were led by an explosive offense that scored seven touchdowns six in the first half alone in a 46-0 shutout of District 14-6A opponent O lympic Heights (2-6, 2-2 D istrict 14-6A). "I t means a lot to the seniors," said South Fork coach Dennis Lavelle. "E verything we do these last 15 days is going to re volve around the senior class. What they went through last year and their effort and commitment has to be honored. All these underclassmen, their egos, their wants, their needs are off the table. It's all about the seniors. Period." S outh Fork wasted no time getting on the scoreboard. On the second play from scrimmage, running back Ricco Pierre broke free for a 55-yard touchdown run to give the Bulldogs the only points they would need that night. Less than six minutes later, Pollock scored another touchdown on a 27-yard run. He totaled three touchdowns on the night, his third coming on a 70-yard pass play from quarterback Cody Labanowitz. Pierre caught a swing pass and outran O lympic Heights defenders for the score. "I was really happy for Ricco to have a big night," Lavelle said. "We have a lot of weapons and the ball gets distributed a lot, so nobody has big numbers. It was nice to see him have a good night." The Bulldogs totaled 346 rushing yards in the game, with 258 yards coming in the first half. A big part of the Bulldogs' success on the ground came courtesy of fullback Dalton Pollock, who scored a team-high four rushing touchdowns for the game. P ollock, who rushed for 174 yards on 13 carries, scored touchdowns on r uns of 12, 17, 11 and 32 yards. Lavelle credited the offensive line with a lot of the offensive success this season. The offensive line is the heart of the whole team," he said. "The fat guys can line up with anybody." The defense, which has been a season work-inprogress, has made strides and Lavelle is impressed with how they are coming along. "W e keep getting better and that just goes to their attitude," he said. "We struggled early, especially against Port St. Lucie, and they just keep working." Lavelle said his team wants to be at the top of the district heading into the playoffs. "W e' ve been district r unner-up, five of six playoff appearances I think," Lavelle said. "We're tired of being the bridesmaids."By Alyssa barbieriF or Hometown News Little League makes big impact on personal developmentCoach Jerry Saylor side coaches one of his players before their next at bat.

Mitch Kloorfain /chief photographerDakota Daniels is congratulated by his Martin County High School bowling teammates following a succession of strikes. Thirteen high schools participated in the 2011 district championships at Stuart Lanes Monday, Oct. 31. The MCHS team score was 3,279, and they will advance to the next round of competition."E veryone wants the opportunity, no one wants the responsibility," he said. The way I run my team is I let every player get time on the field. To some, winning is all that matters, but I just want to teach them the right way to play." Krista Kugaraj, team mom coordinator for the Po rt S alerno Little League, has a son involved on a team and that's the reason she joined the executive board. "E verybody has strengths and weaknesses. Ba seball really helped my son's self-esteem," said Ms. K ugaraj. "There is nothing like when your child finds a niche and you see the smile on their face." Ms. Kugaraj said the executive board is designed in a way that every parent who wants to be involved can be without being overloaded with r esponsibilities. In her position, she communicates with the other team moms and organizes individual team contributions to Little League fundraisers. "E very team mom really makes a difference," said Ms. Kugaraj. "P sychologically, I think that parent involvement in the kids' sports really does help." Mr. DiPiero said the main goal in a child participating in a team activity is to grow and positively develop. As coaches, Mr. D iPiero and Mr. Saylor make a point to instill in their players the importance of good sportsmanship and character on the field, and they hope what they teach extends off the field, as well. "N o matter if you win or lose, as long as you follow the rules you play the game fair," Mr. Saylor said to his players. Little League plays a huge role in a child's social and personal development. Learning and playing baseball shapes every player. Mr. DiPiero said every time the players respect the call of an umpire or shake hands with the opposite team after losing, they learn to be comfortable with themselves and their abilities. "I think that for these kids, baseball really does better than any sport," said Mr. DiPiero said. "Anybody can play baseball and anyone can be good at it. It gives the relief that there isn't just one look and shape to be a good baseball player. We need to teach the kids that everything is OK."

4MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG This month, Forever Y oung focuses on those who serve their country and their community By Shelley KoppelAssociate News Editor Se r vice is important in this month's salute to "Vets and Volunteers." In this issue, we honor two important groups in our community for whom service is a b yword. V eterans have fought in wars near and far to keep us safe and free. Volunteers serve to improve our communities and the quality of life for many of our neighbors who need a helping hand. In many cases, the volunteers featured are also veterans who still want to give back to their communities. There are many ways to volunteer. S ome people, such as those volunteering for Meals on Wheels and the G uardian ad Litem program, work directly with clients. Others work in thrift shops or in the organization office, keeping things going. Their work is just as important. V olunteers need to find that job that meshes with time constraints and comfort levels so that they will want to continue. Many of the volunteers featured in these pages have been volunteering for the same organization for more than 10 years. It's difficult to tell who has benefited more: the organization from their skills and help or the volunteers, from the intangible rewards they find in service. It is fascinating to see the range of volunteer opportunities available in our area. People work with animals, with children, with adults or behindthe-scenes. It doesn't matter. For each, there is satisfaction in being part of something bigger than themselves, of giving of themselves and of helping others. S ome of the veterans profiled volunteered to serve and some were drafted. All, however, consider service to their country an honor. Many had experiences they are reluctant to talk about, but they are not reluctant to discuss duty and responsibility. It was a pleasure and a privilege to interview everyone featured on these pages. They are truly gifts that keep on giving.

5MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Honor Flight honors veterans STUART Michael Roberts' father died when his son was only 20, but he left several legacies. One is Special Forces, the construction company his father founded that Mr. Roberts now runs. The other was a respect for the service of veterans. The elder Roberts had served in the 101st Airborne during WW II. T oday, Mr. Roberts is chairman of Honor Flight of Southeast F lorida, an organization whose mission is to transport veterans to W ashington, D.C., to visit the memorial dedicated to the war in which they served. Priority is given to the oldest veterans, chiefly from WW II, and those with terminal illnesses." H onor Flight was begun in 2005. T oday, there is a national network of 93 non-profit organizations, known as hubs. Each all-volunteer organization is run independently. H onor Flight of Southeast Florida began in 2008 and covers counties from Indian River down to the K eys. "I t' s important to me that it's a local organization," Mr. Roberts said. When I want to help veterans, I want to make sure it goes to ours. Ev erything is volunteer and there is no paid staff. Even the volunteers who go with the veterans pay their o wn way." There are three Honor Flights a y ear, each taking between 80-100 veterans. It costs $500 to get a veteran to Washington. In November, 100 will make the trip, thanks to money raised by the Professional Fi re F ighters and Paramedics of Ma r tin County. P utting together a flight is an enormous undertaking. In addition to the veterans, there are volunteers who pay $400 for the flight. The goal is to have a volunteer for each veteran. Volunteers must be able to push a wheelchair or help a vet stand. It's a tough job. In addition to those volunteers, there are medical staffers on board. The day begins at about 4 a.m., when the vets and volunteers from this area are loaded onto a bus and taken to the VA Hospital in West P alm Beach. They pick up more vets there and have breakfast. "I t' s choreographed," Mr. R oberts said. "We get to Palm B each International airport at 6 a.m. and we're in Washington at 8. It's amazing." The Honor Flight hub in Washington greets each flight and sometimes even has a small band. "I t' s amazing how well things work for an all volunteer organization," Mr. Roberts said. The careful schedule continues with a snack on the way to Arlington and the Tomb of the U nknowns. "W e have a dispensation at the T omb to allow buses," Mr. Roberts said. "They're not allowed unless it's an Honor Flight." The group then goes to the WWII Memorial. They stop for lunch and, if there is time, at memorials to a particular service.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Program brings meals, friendship to seniors STUART The Meals on Wheels program, run by the Council on Aging of Martin County, couldn't deliver some 250 meals each day without the help of dedicated volunteers. Mary Thompson has been a volunteer with the program for four years. Ms. Thompson decided to volunteer for Meals on Wheels because her mother-in-law in Wisconsin had r eceived the service there. Although the Thompsons lived in W isconsin at the time, she was not always able to get to her mother-inlaw each day. "I t was a good way to make sure she ate a good meal," she said. "She couldn't cook for herself and I couldn't always get there." Ms. Thompson had another concern. Her mother-in-law used oxygen and she didn't want her to turn on the stove. Getting a hot meal delivered took care of that worry. "M any people can't get out to buy food," Ms. Thompson said. "It's hard enough to get them to eat when they don't feel well. With something coming in, it made me feel better, even if I couldn't get there to cook it. M eals on Wheels is about more than delivering food. "I t' s a way of keeping people in their home as long as possible," Ms. Thompson said. "A lot of times they like you to visit. I enjoy that. It's nice to talk, to make sure they're OK. It may be their only contact with the outside. You can tell if they need help." While the clients the volunteers visit derive a good deal from the visits, so do the volunteers. "I t makes you feel good to know that you are helping out," Ms. Thompson said. "You never know if y ou might need it. I enjoy visiting with people. One man works on puzzles and I've taken puzzles over. Y ou see what they enjoy doing. "I see how important it is for families to know that their mother or father is getting care. I know how much I appreciated it. You have to give back a little." V olunteering with Meals on Wheels takes a few hours a week, and routes can be shared. Even school groups and businesses can adopt a route and help the community. Krista Kugaraj is the programs V olunteer Coordinator. She has nothing but praise for the volunteers in her program, but had special praise for Ms. Thompson. All of my volunteers go above and beyond," she said. "They're all great. When people call off at the last minute, I can always rely on calling Mary and she'll always say y es.' She's great with the clients, patient and compassionate. When yo u' re around her, she's a pleasant spirit who cheers people up. I'm blessed to have her around."

Photo courtesy of Mary ThompsonMary Thompson has been working as a volunteer for Meals on Wheels for four years.By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor Guardians advocate for children STUART Maureen Nickel was standing outside the Courthouse in S tuart, talking to a social worker. They both noticed a teenage boy pacing back and forth. "H e was in great distress," Ms. N ickel said. "He asked if one of us was a guardian. He said he needed one badly because his parents were playing ping pong with his life." The guardian the child was seeking was a Guardian ad Litem, a volunteer, court-appointed advocate for abused, neglected and abandoned children caught up in dependency court proceedings. Ms. N ickel is a Guardian ad Litem and she told the boy she could make no promises but would see what she could do. The case was given to me," she said. "One day in court, I asked the families to go to separate rooms so I could speak to both. After that, we had a meeting of the minds about how the boy should be placed. I told them, we're here for this boy, not y ou,' she said. "It finally dawned. They were so wrapped up in their o wn problems." Pr o viding a voice for kids has been Ms. Nickel's role for 11 years. A r etired teacher, she knows firsthand how families can hurt. "I was brought up in a severely dysfunctional family," she said. "I had an emotionally disturbed sister and a brother who committed suicide at age 42. That's how I found this to be my niche." Ms. Nickel is so dedicated that while she lives in St. Lucie West, she travels to Martin County to volunteer. Scarlet fever left her with a slight hearing impairment, and the judge in Port St. Lucie spoke had a low voice she had trouble hearing. Ms. Nickel not only represents children in the courtroom. "I visit foster homes, day cares, schools, even jails," she said. "I go By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See GUARDIANS Page 16

The name "Cocoa Beach" brings many things to mind: the NASA space program, a legendary surfing community and the setting for the longr unning TV series, "I Dream of Jeannie." B ut today, the city of Cocoa Beach offers so much more. N estled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River Lagoon, the barrier island of Cocoa Beach is often r eferred to as "the jewel of the Space C oast." And it isn't difficult to see why. C ocoa Beach is both a residential community and tourist destination with a base population of 12,800, according to the city of Cocoa Beach W eb site, www.cityofcocoabeach.com. B ut each year that number reaches as high as 30,000 during the peak tourist season when thousands flock to the area to soak up the sun and spend a week or two doing some S pace Coast sightseeing. F or the past several decades, Cocoa B each has done an excellent job of preserving its historic downtown area. Fr om surf shops and clothing boutiques to gift stores and jewelry venues, it's easy to make a day out of shopping whether by bicycle or on foot. R estaurants, such as the longstanding Heidelberg and Mango Tree, or weekend hot spots, such as C oconuts on the Beach and the Chili P epper Club, cater to crowds of all ages. Another draw to the multi-faceted city is the beautiful wildlife, fishing opportunities and unique plant species found throughout its waterways.

9MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Our fathers and mothers came home from World War II hailed by a grateful nation as conquering heroes. The evil empires of Germany, Italy and Japan had been defeated and once the surrender was signed aboard the USS Missouri, a celebration erupted all across America. That homecoming and the euphoria that followed resulted in more babies being born that at any other time in U. S. history U nfortunately, when those babies, currently known as baby boomers, grew to be young adults they too had a war to fight. This time however, the lines would not be nearly as defined as in World W ar II. The tiny Asian country of V ietnam was locked in a bloody civil war. To the north was the Viet C ong who were supplied and supported by the communist in China and North Korea. In the south the army of The Republic of V ietnam was supported by the countries of the United Nations, but history would show that South V ietnam would become a protectorate of The United States. Thousands upon thousands of the baby boom generation would either volunteer or be drafted for service there. At home in the states our own revolution had begun. The late 1960s and early '70s would explode in protests. Civil rights for the races, women's rights, and a strong anti-war sentiment joined the hippie movement to push America closer to an all out civil war than it had been since well, the Civil War. The young people had experienced about all of the war they could take and were now ready to flex their new found muscle. The so-called peaceniks staged massive marches on Washington D.C. and smaller ones all across the nation. Dr aft cards were burned, kids took just enough college classes to evade military duty, while others beat a steady path north to Canada. The flower power bunch adopted the seemingly benign slogan of "make love not war." B ut what of the returning G I's and those left to fight a thankless war half way around the world? V ietnam would become the most confusing conflict in American history. Each evening domestic TV would show the bombings and give the daily body count while in country the soldiers constantly heard of the growing anti-war movement at home. Many of the y oung people in the military had themselves embraced the hippie lifestyle before entering the service. No w they were not sure where they stood and even questioned their o wn beliefs. Worse yet, they did not know if they now had the support of their own families and friends. The soldiers fighting the war we re even confused as to who was the enemy. The Vietnamese people looked and dressed similarly and a clear foe seldom could be identified. Even on their rare down time they could trust no one. Many times when the enemy was engaged they turned out to be no more than children. Deadly children, but children all the same. The American troops were not raised to shoot kids and with the true enemy so difficult to detect they adopted the slogan "shoot them all and let God sort em out." While that seems a despicable idea it does illustrate the confusion V ietnam vets, like all v ets, should be thanked LAND LINESD AN SMITH See LANDLINES Page 21 680573

It's like they're going to summer camp. I'm zonked out and they're' chattering away." D enise Belizar of Jensen Beach was a volunteer for one of the flights. "I can truly say it was one of the best, and most memorable, days of my life," she said.Honor Flight' is well named, because it is truly an honor to accompany these vets to see their memorial.My father was a WWII vet, and unfortunately he didn't live to see the memorial, so I was glad I was able to help others make the trip. "M any things struck me that day:the overwhelming support of the Tr easure Coast community for our send-off,' the continued accolades for the vets as we journeyed to D.C., the greetings along the way, including from active service members who met the vets at the memorial and so much more.I was so impressed with the excellent organization of the entire day by the Honor Flight members who work so hard to make it a great experience for the vets.They think of everything and take such great care of everyone. Through it all, the vets were humble, overwhelmed with the attention, and protesting that they didn't deserve it.They were extremely touched by the entire experience." F or Mr. Roberts, working with Honor Flight has introduced him to a different type of veteran. They don't all go the American Legion or the VFW," he said. "A lot are not involved in activities. These are vets who have put it behind them. My father didn't talk about it either. "I just got a letter from a vet. His family sent it. He hadn't talked about the war or gathered with vets since WWII. Some tell me it's the best experience they ever had, that they didn't realize how much people cared about what they did." Each veteran receives a videotape of the day's events. Mr. Roberts hears from family members that the tapes are played over and over. F or Mr. Roberts, these flights are a tribute to all veterans. "I appreciate their service," he said. "I hope if I couldn't do it, someone else would do it for my dad."

V olunteers for the Guardian ad Litem program receive 30 hours of training and must take six hours of continuing education training each year to be re-certified. Volunteers work with a case manager and are able to consult with program attorneys, as well. For Ms. N ickel, the draw is working oneto-one with a child. Early on, there was a young lady who cried when I got boots for her for Christmas," she said. "S he was 15 and she had been asking for boots since she was eight years old."

They said they would cancel until I could be there. I r ealized I count and I make a difference. I do have clout. These are my children."

At any one time, kayakers can observe pelicans, bottle-nosed dolphin, manatee, river otter, rabbit and va r ious species of fish throughout their island journey. J ust around the corner is another hot spot, known to house a different type of species dogs. O pened in March 2007, the Lori Wilson Off-Leash Dog Park is a 32,000square-foot paradise for pups and their owners. E quipped with benches, dog toys and obstacles for both large and small doggies, the park serves regular attendees, as well as one-time visitors. While all of these activities are significant to the city, it is the sport of surfing that has helped shape Cocoa B each. F or starters, Ron Jon Surf Shop, which was opened in the early 1960s, is a four-level surf emporium visited by thousands each year. And with six miles of shoreline, there are a number of places for residents and tourists to take on the surf, one of them being the Cocoa Beach Pier. M any East Coast surfing legends, such as Dick Catri and Kelly Slater, got their start surfing those very waves. Mo re than 80 surfers from every generation have been inducted into the city's East Coast Surfing Hall of F ame, which doubles as a public museum. "W e developed a concept years ago that, as surfers, we are a society," said Re p. T ony Sasso, R-Cocoa Beach, who grew up surfing in the community and helped conceptualize the surf museum. "In recognizing that, we hope to keep the door open for the next generation."

17MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG V et helps turn houses into homes STUART Dennis Fadden began thinking about affordable housing when he was stationed in Germany. As an officer, the West Point graduate easily found housing. However, the enlisted men had trouble finding places to live within their means. The notion of affordable housing stayed with him. As a civilian, the company where he worked supported several Habitat for Humanity builds. He was hooked. T oday, Mr. Faddden works in real estate for Coldwell Banker in Stuart. A volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Martin County, he sits on several committees and is a member of the board. "I 'm a firm believer in Habitat," he said. "I see a direct correlation to my work in real estate. As a member of the Ma rt in County Realtors Association, I encourage fellow realtors to get involved and give back to the community." Mr. Fadden puts his money where his mouth is. He donates a portion of his commissions to Habitat and he is on a committee to set up a program of planning giving to set cash flow for the future. H abitat for Humanity is celebrating 25 years in Martin County and recently dedicated its 93rd home. Both volunteers and beneficiaries have a r ole to play in making the house a r eality. When we come in, the foundation and concrete walls are in," Mr. Fadden said. "The volunteers put on the roof sheet rock the walls, put in flooring, and do the painting. Electrical and plumbing work is done by volunteer professionals." H abitat of Martin County works with Lowe's to offer training session in everything from putting down vinyl flooring to hammering nails correctly, to avoid fingers. If power tools are going to be used, Lowe's also supplies that training. F or those hoping to have a new home, there is a Family Selection C ommittee. Families fill out an application and if they meet income guidelines, they have an interview where their needs are discussed. "I f they're selected, they must put in a certain number of hours constructing other homes," Mr. Fadden said. "If they can't do construction, they can work in some other capacity, supporting the construction, like keeping track of paperwork or. It's tailored to the individual. For families with children, we give them a paintbrush. We're one big family." H abitat has planned several fundraising events, including a R ockathon at Lowe's in Stuart on Dec. 12. There will be entertainment for kids, raffles, and rockers: people r ocking in chairs with sponsors donating money as long as they rock. They also plan a repeat of the successful Stud Finder charity auction, in which men in the community donate services such as tennis lessons and gourmet meals for the audience to bid on. This year's event, at the new Ly r ic Flagler Center in downtown St uart, will be held on Jan. 26. Mr. Fadden hopes that anyone who wants to volunteer will do so. It's not necessary to wield a hammer. "I f someone wants to get involved, we will find a job for them," he said. To v olunteer for the wide variety of opportunities at Habitat for Humanity in Martin County,call Mary Jones, director of volunteer services,at (772) 223-9940,e-mail her at mjones@habitatmartin.org or visit the website www.habitatmartin.org.

21MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG our service people were feeling. When the long war finally ended for the U.S. in late 1973 the returning service people we re not greeted as heroes. There was no celebrations or parades. Instead the American public rushed to forget one of the most distasteful episodes in our history. Also forgotten we re the fighting men and women and the sacrifices they had made. Often they had to endure derision from the malcontents and draft dodgers who had stayed behind. Many could not wait to take off their uniforms. It was not a pretty time in American history. It would be y ears before the Vietnam vets would gain the respect they deserved and take their ri ghtful place alongside past heroes. In r ecent years the American service people who have fought in the Middle East have greatly benefited from the r esidual shame of how the 'Nam vets were treated. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are every bit as unpopular as was the war in Vietnam but the American populace has learned their lesson well. S oldiers returning from the M iddle East are given the full r espect due them. They can partially thank a Vietnam vet for that. They to are every day Americans who have been called upon to serve in an unpopular war. Not knowing who your friends are or who the enemy is makes the job all the more tough. Let's never aid in confusing our troops again. LandlinesFrom page 9 are all hoping he will be able to join us, albeit for different reasons. To say my family is competitive is akin to declaring the Grand Canyon is a nice little gorge. M onopoly games have been known to last weeks Our football games require r eal umpires Checkers have been known to be a contact sport. B ut it's the holidays that bring out the spirit in our happy conglomeration of personalities. Arriving just a few short weeks after H alloween, Veterans Day heralds in the holidays in our world, and that means family dinners. F amily dinners means some really great pot luck food and really great together time, which gets scarcer as our third generation grows older and requires chauffeurs and coaches. P laying the role of moderator (referee) I happily join and oversee lengthy conversations about current events and recent achievements. I begin looking for my gavel should the chatter drift toward politics, and with my varied group of veterans this inevitably somehow leads to which branch of the military is the best/worst. Wo r ds like "Jarhead," "Swabby," "Mud S tomper" and "Fly Person" (used to be "Fly Bo y") are soon thrown around like pillows at a pajama party as lips curl and faces r edden. It 's r ight about now that the chronological ages are staying the same, but the mental ages are swiftly reverting. "Y ou wouldn't have made it a week at sea!" Roy has an uncanny ability to push just the right buttons. "Y ou USED to be a sailor I will ALWAYS be a Marine!" Jumping to her feet Cindy narrows in on her brother. "W e got there first!" There's Dad "B y plane!" Alicia is in the Air Force. "O h yeah?" It's like watching a ping pong match "Yeah!"

26MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG T he name's the same Until recent generations, the exact spelling of a name did not matter. Words were just sounds, and most people had never had their name actually written. Literacy did not become widespread until the late 1800's.When looking for your family names, let your imagination be your guide. Spelling can vary from person to person, family, generation, document, and also will depend on the person indexing census records. Y ou will almost always find some differences in the spelling of your ancestors' name, however, the correct spelling is not as important as determining that it is the correct ancestor. R egional accents and mispronunciations can cause spelling differences. A "B" may be heard as a "P", or a "V" heard as a "W". When spoken, a word can be unrecognizable to someone from a different part of the country. Vo w els can become anything the writer chooses. An "i" can be an "e", "ie", "y", "ey", "ee. Consonants also change or become single or double, "l" or "ll". I mmigration officers often changed difficult foreign names to more familiar English names. F amilies have often changed their names slightly or entirely, to blend in more with the society into which they are living. Learn to go with your instinct when y ou see a novel spelling for your ancestor. However, you still must dot all the "i's" and cross all the "t's" to prove that it truly is your ancestor, and not just someone with the same name. Br enda Knight Smith Tr easure Coast Genealogy Society Br endaKSmith@prodigy.net GENEALOGYB RENDA K. SMITH Hey, Congress: My future isn't just a line item If you happened to be walking around C apitol Hill in Washington this week, y ou might have been seeing red.A ctually, maybe more than one kind of red. In addition to the frustration many voters feel, AARP Florida volunteers and staff were among hundreds of AARP members in red shirts, hitting Capitol Hill this week to pass along a very clear, forceful message to Congress: We 'r e not numbers. Our future is not just a line item in your budget. And we 'r e definitely not pushovers. So hands off our Social Security and M edicare. In C ongress, a group of 12 very powerful lawmakers is meeting behind closed doors to plan how to cut $1.5 trillion out of the federal budget over 10 years. This group is definitely considering proposals to stick you with higher health costs under Medicare while also possibly cutting your Social S ecurity checks. I nstead of focusing on cutting waste and tax loopholes, they're treating seniors like we're just another budget line-item. Some plans under discussion include: Cutting Social Security by $112 billion, which could cost seniors thousands of dollars over their lifetime. Raising the Medicare eligibility age, which would: Cut benefits for younger retirees Increase out-of-pocket spending for 65 and 66-year-olds by an average of $2,000 per year at a time when many people are already struggling to make ends meet. Increase premiums for people already in Medicare because it would leave older, more costly people in the system. Increase health care costs for businesses because workers would stay on employer plans longer. C ongress is focused entirely on charts, graphs and numbers but no one seems to care about these numbers: Some 3.7 million Floridians depend heavily on Social Security. Another 3 million rely on Medicare for health care. B elieve me, I know exactly how it feels to rely on Medicare. I am a cancer survivor. I am now doing well, thanks to the top-notch care I received under M edicare. You can multiply my story by millions . and that's in Florida alone. In W ashington, the elites sneer about our "entitlements." Darn right we're entitled we paid in over a lifetime of hard work, so we could count on the benefits when we needed them. And don't try to tell us these benefits are lavish. Even with these benefits, half of all Americans age 65 and older have an annual income of less than $18,500 per year. On average, each one pays $3,000 each year out of their own pocket for medical expenses. We're not getting rich on Social Security. On this issue, AARP members are solidly united. Republicans, Democr ats and independents all agree that it's wrong for the "supercommittee" to cut the benefits they've worked for and depend on. No w' s the time for you to raise your voice. Call 1-888-322-1334 to tell your member of Congress that they can start focusing on cutting waste and tax loopholes, or harm 3.7 million Floridians who have worked their entire lives to earn the Medicare and Social S ecurity benefits. And tell them one more thing: We will hold them accountable for making harmful cuts. D oug Heinlen is president of AARP F lorida. AARP PRESIDENTDOUG H EINLEN to tell Mom where you REALLY were the night of your high school prom when the ballroom was evacuated!" "O h yeah, I think it's time Mom found out who REALLY had her car out most of the night when you were too young to have a license, then convinced her she actually did park it in the neighbor's yard!" I distinctly r emember asking Roy if he knew anything about that incident at the time and being angelically assured he did not Lest I discover hidden truths that would cause me to have retroactive panic attacks, I do some reverting myself To a tried-and-true method of snapping my offspring back into adulthood "I r ead somewhere that it's not a crime to step on the American flag" H eads snap around and chests expand. What?! Where did you read that?" "P eople fought and died for that flag!" And still are!" Roy's face begins to r edden again. Cindy's eyes flash, "I served my country so everyone can have freedom of speech, not to disrespect our flag!" Alicia chimes in via the cell phone: "M e too!" Don't forget me!" Dad's actually growling. I just love it when a family comes together Especially if they do so before dinner gets completely cold. Jo e, when you enlisted in the military you joined more than one elite group Welcome And please pass the mashed potatoes PS. My favorite bumper sticker reads "I f you can read this thank a teacher, if y ou can read it in English thank a veteran" I think that about says it all, please take a moment this holiday and every day to say a short prayer for all who are serving so we may be free and their families who are struggling without them.

In addition to fighter jet, aerobatic and parachuting displays, the Stuart Air Show will also honor some of the militarys finest assets: its servicemen and women. Organizers will set up a living legends tent for about 40 members of the 8th Air Force and Women Air Force Service Pilots, who talk about their experiences in World War II. Their veterans presence will serve a dual purpose, as they will also r aise money for Honor F light, a nonprofit that takes World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorial built there in their honor.

And theres no shortage of them on the Treasure C oast. This column will highlight cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. W oman accused of misusing 911 Whether being harassed constitutes an emergency that would justify calling 911 may be determined on a case-by-case basis.

It won from more than 60 entries. Through a lot of hard work, successful partnerships and local support, these projects are completed and have helped to r ebuild that community in some way, said Kurt Easton, president of the Florida R edevelopment Association. The CRA worked with several local nonprofits to organize the event.

The group invested less than $7,000, and raised about $18,700 in cash, equipment, materials and other donations from public and private sector organizations.

One was that the purse belonged to her cousin, who rented the vehicle that she was driving. But at the time of the traffic stop she claimed the vehicle was r ented by her niece, the r eport said. S he also changed her story regarding the purse, the report said. Ms. Davis told the officer her story about the purse belonging to her cousin was a lie and that she had bought it from a jit, (a y oung person), the report said. When she bought the purse for $5, it was empty, she told deputies. The report didnt say whether the purse belonged to the Miami woman who had her purse stolen at the cemetery.

Michael Dougherty we re headed to work on a Mar tin County case the evening of Oct. 24 when they saw a man walking down U.S. 1, Detective Sirmans recalled last week. The man looked like Leviticus Uriah Taylor, 25, who had escaped that morning from the Indian River County jail, along with R ondell H. Reed, who was awaiting trial on a firstdegree murder charge. Earlier, Stuart Police stopped a car in which it is believed Mr. Taylor was a passenger, but let it go, as at that time, they had no information about the escape, said Officer Mike Pope, spokesman for the Stuart P olice Department. Mr. Taylor had been convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Nestor Pe re z of Vero Beach in 2009. The man in Stuart walking down the street hours after the Stuart Police stop was wearing a horizontally striped shirt and matched the description of Mr. Taylor, Detective Sirmans said. They got a closer look at the man and at that point, we got out of our vehicle and conducted a field interview, Detective Sirmans said. Although Mr. Taylor was apparently not lucky in having been spotted, he told the deputies his name was L ucky McIntosh, the detective said.

He re s a tip: always verify questionable charges, regardless how small they may seemto be. High wages, low productivityIf you ever wonder why the federal government perpetually wants more money and why your taxes are always going up, look at government salaries. In addition to lavish benefits and liberal pensions, the average salary for Washington bureaucrats is (hold on to y our hat) $126,000 per year. The District of Columbia doesnt produce anything, except hot air, but is the richest area in the nation. Go figure. Salaries too highTheres a report that the average salary for federal government employees is $126,000 per year, and if that is true, we taxpayers are sure a bunch of foolish rubes. They are supposed to be public servants, but who ever heard of a public servant, or any kind of servant, getting $126,000? Schools need changeEv en some Democrats are starting to realize that our public schools are failing our kids and that spending more money on a poor system is a waste. In the inner cities, education, in terms of academics, violence and finances, is worse now than after several y ears of increased subsidies. Only half of the pupils meet state goals in reading and math, but the teachers union r emains locked into the same old procedures and techniques of the past and is adamantly opposed to changes. No new stadiumP oliticians are unwilling or unable to listen to their constituents. The last three years have been tough for the average American, but very little has changed at our nations capitol. While we tighten our belts, politicians are considering a multi-million grant to subsidize a new football stadium for the Minnesota Vikings. Talk about wasteful and unnecessary spending! There is a huge disconnect between Martin County and W ashington, D.C. Build bridge hereF igure this out.More than any other issue, politicians pontificate on the subject of jobs for the U.S. At the same time, they arranged for a huge bridge over the San Francisco Bay to be fabricated in China and shipped to California, costing us thousands of American jobs. The $12 billion project was a magnificent opportunity to create good paying American jobs at a time of high unemployment. President Obama did nothing to save the situation. Opportunity lost. Jail a solution?I have a real solution for me and others who cant afford to pay for their house, buy food for the family, make car payments, pay for health insurance, etc. Lets commit a crime, go to prison and get the free best medical care, education, three meals a day, free housing, have your attorneys fees paid for by other peoples tax dollars and complain about the horrible treatment we get, sue the state and win thousands to send to our families. Rick Scott, I hope youre reading this. Im fed up with the system thats in place now. S ystem is a jokeHe re in Florida, people who violate domestic-violence r elated restraining orders are usually treated leniently by the courts. Those charged can often secure their freedom by posting a small amount, giving them little incentive to appear, as required. Lax treatment makes Floridas legal system a pathetic joke. All talk, no actionWe v e heard a great deal of talk from our president about the need for more jobs for American workers; a great deal of talk but very little action. It would be nice to hear about cutting back on government spending, something desperately needed during these hard times. All this talk by the president makes us wonder whether were being jobbed, jobbed by our president. Got something to say?

The center is also the host of several annual events that boost the local economy. I ts Club 420 Midwinters r ace, for instance, slated for Fe b. 18-20, will likely draw about 150 competitors from across the state and country. Past races have generated about $71,000 for local businesses, as boaters dine out, book hotel rooms and visit local attractions. W e re very proud of our r egatta season, said Alan J enkinson, executive director. The season, which starts the first weekend in D ecember, includes seven nationally and state-recognized regattas. The first race, on Dec. 34, is the South Points No. 2, in which about 60 high school boaters race for the top spot. That same weekend, the J unior Olympics is set to attract between 150 and 200 boats, ages 18 and y ounger, organizers said. Few er than 10 percent of these boats will come from Mar tin County, which means the rest will be visitors who spend money in the area. The following week, on De c. 10-11, the center will host the District 13 laser championship or D13, featuring between 70 and 90 laser sailboats. W e really benefit the local economy, but not many people know it, Mr. J enkinson said. The people in the hotels, they know what were contributing, but the people in the r estaurants, they probably dont, even if they benefit from it. F act is, area residents dont even know the U.S. S ailing Center of Martin C ounty exists, much less that it generates business for the region. When he was the guest speaker at a recent meeting of a Palm City-based sailing club, Mr. Jenkinson was surprised to learn that many audience members had not heard of the Jensen B each center. F ifty percent of the people didnt even know we existed. It boggles my brain, he said. I guess the r eality is were quietly sitting here. If you dont specifically make up your mind to find us or drive down Indian River Drive, y ou might not find us. The local company is one of four U.S. Sailing centers in the country. F ounded in 1992, it has operated at its current location at 1955 N.E. Indian River Drive, since 2002. The fact that we are even here is noteworthy, said Mr. Jenkinson. But everybody has a misconception of why were here. They think were just for kids, or to teach sailing or just for high-end sailing. B ut my motto is were for everyone. As nonprofit organization, the sailing center has a limited marketing budget. It relies heavily on volunteers, but has engaged widely in community outr each. The U.S. Sailing Center of Mar tin County has reached out to several charitable organizations to support their members. It hosts the S amaritan Center for Boys and Families, ARC, or Ad vocates for the Rights of the Challenged and Access Sa iling and Kayaking. It is also invites residents to visit its waterfront amenities. W e re one of only four in the nation. Not coming by would be like living in a town that borders the Grand Canyon and never visiting it, or living here in S tuart and never going to the beach, Mr. Jenkinson said. Vi sitors can rent boats by the hour, take sailing lessons, purchase boating packages or become members. A dult memberships cost $395 per year for unlimited use of sailboats with no guest fees. Junior memberships are also available for children 18 and younger.

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.Idont mean to sound like a broken record (or should I say defective audio chip) these days.This is the fourth article Ive written on the subject of F loridas dumb law (see www.DumbLaw.org), 322.126(2), (3). This is the law that allows any person to report in confidence any Florida driver as being physically or mentally impaired and be held harmless from any civil or criminal liability even if it can be proven it was done with malicious intent. No one is a greater advocate than I for removing bad drivers from F loridas roads. I see them daily and am convinced they are responsible for a large percentage of highway deaths, injuries, property damage and soaring insurance rates. B ut Im also a strong advocate of the facts, that the end doesnt always justify the means and that everyone should be held accountable for their wrongful acts. Last Friday, I had a very productive meeting with state Rep. Irving Slosberg of F loridas 90th district in B oca Raton. He impressed me very much with his openness to my suggestions. I conversed with him and his two aides for about 45 minutes.His office is at 9045 La Fontana Blvd, Suite 117. When I walked in the front door there was no one in the front office. I heard a dog barking in the back and Ir v came out with his dog, So ldier, a fine looking terrier, on a leash. He asked me if I like dogs and said, V ery much. Soldier joined the meeting and anybody who loves dogs this much has to be a good guy.I also learned that I didnt even need an appointment because Irv Slosberg has an open door policy. Anybody who needs help can just walk into his office at any time. This is very rare for a politician and, before I left, I told Irv that we needed more guys like him in W ashington, D.C. Dur ing our conversation, he called one of the higher ups of the Florida Highway S afety and Motor Vehicle D epartment. This FHSMV person was aware of me and told Irv Slosberg that he was the fourth caller about the E arl Stewarts problem. This person, not surprisingly, was not at all sympathetic to my position. He pointed out that the informants were not anonymous as I had incorrectly stated, but were only confidential. He is exactly correct, there is a shade of difference between the definitions of confidential and anonymous. B ecause the FHSMV knows the name of the informant but wont tell anybody else, including the accused, the informant is confidential.Anonymous would mean that not even the FHSMV would know the name of the informant. Of course, the net effect is exactly the same because the informant is held harmless even if the motive for turning in a driver was purely malicious. It makes no difference if the FHSMV knows the identity of the informant if they will not tell anybody else, not the accused, his or her lawyer, the police or even a judge.And, if through a fluke, the identity was known and it could be proven the intent was malicious, the informer is held harmless from civil suit or criminal liability. Re p. Sl osberg was incensed when I explained to him why I believed that I knew the person who had informed on me did so for re venge and why Im 99.9 percent sure that I know who he is. He agrees with me that this is the part of the law that must be changed. A person who takes it upon himself to try to have anothers driving privileges revoked must be held accountable if this is done falsely and with malicious intent. How ever, Irv Slosberg did not think that my going public with my opposition to this bad law was a good idea. He felt that the more people who know about this law, the greater the potential for abuse. I have to agree with him that more awareness of this bad law will generate more abuse. But I cant agree that this justifies keeping quiet about it. In fact, if more people like me are willing to stand up and be counted, we may be able to expedite changes in this law. This law has been on the books too long, 17 years, and the reason its been there so long is that people only became aware of the law when they fell victim to it. Most of the victims never r esponded to the letter from the FHSMV and continue to drive their cars, but now with no license and no F riday, November 4, 2011 A8 Martin CountyHometown News Keeping You Cool for over10 Years!

ST. LUCIE COUNTY R obert J. Kulas attended a national conference in San D iego during October hosted by the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys to learn more about current estate planning matters and the inevitable impact those matters could have on clients. Mr. Kulas received training on financial and legal management systems, annuities and estate planning, veterans aid and administration, and estate planning and digital assets. The academy is the premier national educational organization promoting excellence in estate planning by providing member attorneys with continuing education courses and events, and vital updates in estate, tax and business planning laws since 1993. Mr. Kulas focuses his practice exclusively on estate, legacy and elder law planning. I attend the academy events because I recognize the importance of learning cutting-edge planning techniques and changes in the law that affect my clients, he said. O ur primary focus at my firm is meeting the needs of our clients. Information provided to me at the academy events gives me the most fundamental tools I need to ensure the health of my practice so we can continue to work toward that goal. The law firm of Robert J. K ulas has devoted its practice to estate planning matters for the last 27 years.

They dont speak out because of the same reason they dont take the driving, written, hearing and eye tests: fear.Who wouldnt be afraid of even the remotest chance to lose their driving privileges?Why not gamble that a policeman will never stop you, especially since most people have never been stopped before, especially if youre a good driver. W ould you take a chance that some FHSMV bureaucrat may mistakenly fail y ou in some part of the test if you didnt have to? God knows government bureaucrats make lots of mistakes, we read and hear about them in the news every day. The letters from the FHSMV are mailed out r egular mail, not certified as they should be. Whos to say your letter wasnt lost in the mail? In fact, Im certain that some letters are lost in the mail and some letters are accidentally thrown out, what with all of the junk mail we receive nowadays. This means that there are probably also lots of drivers without licenses that dont even know that their licenses are suspended. P lease sign my petition at www.DumbLaw.org. N ext week, I will be taking my driving, written, eye and hearing tests and, of course, I will pass them all and retain my license. Dont sign this to help me, but sign this petition for those who cant or wont stand up because theyre afraid. Sign this petition because this law is unAmerican because the state should not protect someone when they maliciously attack another by concealing their identity and shielding them from all civil and criminal liability.

It was in this room where I, along with the members of my planning committee, and founders of Av enue D, Earl and Mary H endricks, gathered together to hash out the details for a memorable concert. Ev ery year, like thousands of other schools across the U.S., TPS puts on our version of a winter/holiday concert. Students practice the familiar and not-sofamiliar songs that leave audience members in a joyful state of cheer, after seeing their kids perform the melodies that conjure up ideas of peace and brotherhood. Ive always liked concerts like these. Ive been an educator for 16 years, and a professional musician longer than that, and I have always enjoyed holidaythemed concerts. But this y ear is different. This year its about priorities. I found out about the Av enue D choirs last year, and after meeting Earl and Ma ry I knew that it was the beginning of something special. The fact that they are exceptional musicians themselves, people of great faith and inspiration would be more than enough to impress me. How ever, whats most impressive to me is that they affect the lives of children in such a phenomenal way. I asked them to perform at The Pine Schools annual Ev ening of the Arts, which was held at the Lyric in Apr il. It gave me goose bumps. They amazed every single person in the house that night. S till, I think I was even more amazed by their mission: to develop an excellent, well-disciplined boys choir, while equipping the young men with the personal, academic and social skills they need to attain success. Y ou see, I am in the education business. The r eason why I work at The Pine School is because I believe in the mission of the school: to promote academic excellence within a challenging, supportive and moral environment that fosters the development of mind, body and spirit. It became evident to me that there needed to be some kind of meaningful exchange between TPS and Av enue D. Nothing brings people together better than music. You see, I am also in the music business. There will be something simply electric and wonderful when this years winter concert happens. This year, The Pine Schools winter concert will be a benefit for the Avenue D. Bo ys Choir. All of the money raised will go to support the mission of Av enue D. N ot only will the audience be treated to music by The Pine Schools premier performing ensembles, but they will hear worldr enowned, counter-tenor, T erry Barber, and the Av enue D Boys and Girls choirs, as well. Terrys involvement is made possible by his organization, Artists for a Cause, whose mission is to support community improvement. The theme this year is simple, You raise me up, four little words that describe what can happen when we affect the life of a child in a positive manner. My goal has been, like Ma ry Earl and Terry, to do it through music. My station is here in Hobe Sound. Avenue D s mission is in Fort Pierce. What may seem like a world away to some is nothing compared to the melody that connects us all. So it is with great pleasure, that I invite you to join us for an evening of music that you will not forget. It is an evening that will be fueled by the desire to affect lives. It is our chance to make an impact no matter how small or great on our y oung people. The concert will be held on Friday, Dec. 9 at 7p.m. at The Pine School, Stuart campus 1300 E. Tenth St Donation is $10 per family. Mar cus D.Rabb is director of fine arts at The Pine School.V olunteer to be honoredMARTIN COUNTY P atty Stewart will be honored at the Kiplinger Literacy Award Luncheon on Feb. 6, at the Hutchinson Island M arriott. Thanks to the persistent efforts of Patty Stewart, the Library Foundation is working hard to raise the literacy r ate in Martin County from No 6 in the state to No. 1, said Leo Clancy, president of the Library Foundation of Mar tin County. P atty Stewart has worked tirelessly and diligently to provide a model program that will improve the serious deficiencies in reading, oral and written language comprehension and use of technology in the work places in Mar tin County, said Betty M ulligan, the 2011 Literacy A ward recipient. These Martin County adult learners need basic and advanced educational skills to further their employment opportunities in our community. This program will enable the adult learner to reach their own personal and family goals, as well as to be productive and useful individuals. Ms. Stewart, a former fifth grade teacher, understands the difference literacy can make in one persons life and all the lives they touch in turn. She joined the Library Foundation board in 2007 because of the foundations literacy initiative. S ince that time she has been the librarys foremost advocate for literacy and has encouraged her friends and community members to join the cause. Ms. Stewart chairs the Literacy Network Initiative and has been involved in the Ki plinger Literacy luncheon since it started three years ago. W e have so much to offer in Martin County in terms of community services. But r eading and writing needs to be the top priority in my opinion. There are about 15,000 people who cannot r ead and write and we want to reach and teach everyone of them, said Ms. Stewart. D ue to her leadership, the initiative has secured funding from the State Department of Education to establish four workplace sites. The goal is to reach over 750 individuals in the next 12 months. The Library Foundation of Mar tin County, founded in 1992, provides enhancements to the Martin County Library System by funding special library projects and capital improvements. Donations support cultural and educational programming and provide new technology and materials for the collection. M embership levels begin at $35 for an individual.

Scheme to get cash fails A man and a woman apparently tried to fish for some extra cash at a local W al-Mart, but their scheme led them down the creek without a paddle. A report states the man w ent into the store and switched some bar codes on some fishing poles so the poles would ring up cheaper. He bought the fishing poles that normally cost $212 for only $27. Then he exited and gave one of the fishing poles to the woman who tried to get a full refund. But she was denied that because previously she had written bad checks at the store. The pair was eventually arrested and sent to jail. I dont know,you tell me A pparently, one local r esident thought police officers are telepathic or have the ability to predict the future. When the man wouldnt leave a motel, an employee called the police. A responding police officer asked the man what he was doing and he r eplied, I dont know, you tell me. When asked if he was going to leave, the man r eplied, I dont know, you tell me. The man eventually said he was waiting for a woman to pick him up, but when asked her identity, he r esponded, I dont know, y ou tell me. W ell, the police officer apparently told him instead that he was being arrested and going to jail. M aybe you dont want MARTIN COUNTY A second Therapeutic Music D ay on Nov. 12, will follow the first successful event in Apr il.

The students receive community service hours, an event day T-shirt, a certificate of appreciation from A4AC and a valuable performance opportunity where they can see the power of their art, he said. The teachers, those making their way as professional artists in our culture, receive an honorarium and recognition for their educational institutions.

PORT SALERNO Jerry Sa ylor, a Port Salerno Little League coach, keeps his voice calm and his players focused during practices and games. The running, batting and throwing exercises they practice have already made a difference in their lives. Mr. Saylors team recently played a game where the players were getting discouraged because they we re losing by a lot. Mr. S aylor encouraged them to cheer on their teammates, and the team started to come back. The main thing is that they work as a team, said Mr. Saylor. My job as a coach is to teach them how to play the game, to help them out to get better. Little League has been helping shape boys lives since its inaugural season in 1939 across the nation. The Port Salerno Little League is a recent addition to this legacy. Mr. Saylor said his role as coach is to teach the players the rules and regulations of baseball and get the players to communicate effectively on the field. I f they keep talking and encouraging each other, they become the coach, he said. Being a coach to themselves helps them as a team that they can realize their own mistakes and how to improve. Mr. Saylor said playing Little League Baseball has a positive impact on the children as people and as players. Through Little League, the players get to make friends, build confidence and learn how to be good team players. They learn how to take direction positively and learn from their experiences. F amily involvement is a big part of the Little League experience. This season, there was a shortage on parent coaches in Po rt S alerno, but there was no shortage of players. Chris DiPiero, minors league representative for the Port Salerno Little League, had the task of r ecruiting coaches. Mr. D iPiero played Little League as a child and is now aiding in the organizational process so his 11y ear-old son can do the same. There is no Little League without parent participation, said Mr. D iPiero. F allBall is a family exper ience, where parents and coaches support the players, and the players grow as a team. Mr. DiPiero said Little League positively affects the players because with every practice they build confidence and physical strength. The children have to learn how to win and how to lose, said Mr. DiPiero They have to build character. Par ents have the potential to play a major part in this experience. Mr. DiPieros role as a minor league representative means he organizes the practices, recruits coaches, makes the teams and keeps communication open. In addition to this role, he is also a coach.

The Bulldogs (5-3, 4-0 D istrict 14-6A) were led by an explosive offense that scored seven touchdowns six in the first half alone in a 46-0 shutout of District 14-6A opponent O lympic Heights (2-6, 2-2 D istrict 14-6A). I t means a lot to the seniors, said South Fork coach Dennis Lavelle. E verything we do these last 15 days is going to re volve around the senior class. What they went through last year and their effort and commitment has to be honored. All these underclassmen, their egos, their wants, their needs are off the table. Its all about the seniors. Period. S outh Fork wasted no time getting on the scoreboard. On the second play from scrimmage, running back Ricco Pierre broke free for a 55-yard touchdown run to give the Bulldogs the only points they would need that night. Less than six minutes later, Pollock scored another touchdown on a 27-yard run. He totaled three touchdowns on the night, his third coming on a 70-yard pass play from quarterback Cody Labanowitz. Pierre caught a swing pass and outran O lympic Heights defenders for the score. I was really happy for Ricco to have a big night, Lavelle said. We have a lot of weapons and the ball gets distributed a lot, so nobody has big numbers. It was nice to see him have a good night. The Bulldogs totaled 346 rushing yards in the game, with 258 yards coming in the first half. A big part of the Bulldogs success on the ground came courtesy of fullback Dalton Pollock, who scored a team-high four rushing touchdowns for the game. P ollock, who rushed for 174 yards on 13 carries, scored touchdowns on r uns of 12, 17, 11 and 32 yards. Lavelle credited the offensive line with a lot of the offensive success this season. The offensive line is the heart of the whole team, he said. The fat guys can line up with anybody. The defense, which has been a season work-inprogress, has made strides and Lavelle is impressed with how they are coming along. W e keep getting better and that just goes to their attitude, he said. We struggled early, especially against Port St. Lucie, and they just keep working. Lavelle said his team wants to be at the top of the district heading into the playoffs. W e ve been district r unner-up, five of six playoff appearances I think, Lavelle said.

Mitch Kloorfain /chief photographerDakota Daniels is congratulated by his Martin County High School bowling teammates following a succession of strikes. Thirteen high schools participated in the 2011 district championships at Stuart Lanes Monday, Oct. 31. The MCHS team score was 3,279, and they will advance to the next round of competition.E veryone wants the opportunity, no one wants the responsibility, he said. The way I run my team is I let every player get time on the field. To some, winning is all that matters, but I just want to teach them the right way to play. Krista Kugaraj, team mom coordinator for the Po rt S alerno Little League, has a son involved on a team and thats the reason she joined the executive board. E verybody has strengths and weaknesses. Ba seball really helped my sons self-esteem, said Ms. K ugaraj. There is nothing like when your child finds a niche and you see the smile on their face. Ms. Kugaraj said the executive board is designed in a way that every parent who wants to be involved can be without being overloaded with r esponsibilities. In her position, she communicates with the other team moms and organizes individual team contributions to Little League fundraisers. E very team mom really makes a difference, said Ms. Kugaraj. P sychologically, I think that parent involvement in the kids sports really does help. Mr. DiPiero said the main goal in a child participating in a team activity is to grow and positively develop. As coaches, Mr. D iPiero and Mr. Saylor make a point to instill in their players the importance of good sportsmanship and character on the field, and they hope what they teach extends off the field, as well. N o matter if you win or lose, as long as you follow the rules you play the game fair, Mr. Saylor said to his players. Little League plays a huge role in a childs social and personal development. Learning and playing baseball shapes every player. Mr. DiPiero said every time the players respect the call of an umpire or shake hands with the opposite team after losing, they learn to be comfortable with themselves and their abilities. I think that for these kids, baseball really does better than any sport, said Mr. DiPiero said. Anybody can play baseball and anyone can be good at it. It gives the relief that there isnt just one look and shape to be a good baseball player. We need to teach the kids that everything is OK.

4MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG This month, Forever Y oung focuses on those who serve their country and their community By Shelley KoppelAssociate News Editor Ser vice is important in this months salute to Vets and Volunteers. In this issue, we honor two important groups in our community for whom service is a b yword. V eterans have fought in wars near and far to keep us safe and free. Volunteers serve to improve our communities and the quality of life for many of our neighbors who need a helping hand. In many cases, the volunteers featured are also veterans who still want to give back to their communities. There are many ways to volunteer. S ome people, such as those volunteering for Meals on Wheels and the G uardian ad Litem program, work directly with clients. Others work in thrift shops or in the organization office, keeping things going. Their work is just as important. V olunteers need to find that job that meshes with time constraints and comfort levels so that they will want to continue. Many of the volunteers featured in these pages have been volunteering for the same organization for more than 10 years. Its difficult to tell who has benefited more: the organization from their skills and help or the volunteers, from the intangible rewards they find in service. It is fascinating to see the range of volunteer opportunities available in our area. People work with animals, with children, with adults or behindthe-scenes. It doesnt matter. For each, there is satisfaction in being part of something bigger than themselves, of giving of themselves and of helping others. S ome of the veterans profiled volunteered to serve and some were drafted. All, however, consider service to their country an honor. Many had experiences they are reluctant to talk about, but they are not reluctant to discuss duty and responsibility. It was a pleasure and a privilege to interview everyone featured on these pages. They are truly gifts that keep on giving.

5MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Honor Flight honors veterans STUART Michael Roberts father died when his son was only 20, but he left several legacies. One is Special Forces, the construction company his father founded that Mr. Roberts now runs. The other was a respect for the service of veterans. The elder Roberts had served in the 101st Airborne during WW II. T oday, Mr. Roberts is chairman of Honor Flight of Southeast F lorida, an organization whose mission is to transport veterans to W ashington, D.C., to visit the memorial dedicated to the war in which they served. Priority is given to the oldest veterans, chiefly from WW II, and those with terminal illnesses. H onor Flight was begun in 2005. T oday, there is a national network of 93 non-profit organizations, known as hubs. Each all-volunteer organization is run independently. H onor Flight of Southeast Florida began in 2008 and covers counties from Indian River down to the K eys. I t s important to me that its a local organization, Mr. Roberts said. When I want to help veterans, I want to make sure it goes to ours. Ev erything is volunteer and there is no paid staff. Even the volunteers who go with the veterans pay their o wn way. There are three Honor Flights a y ear, each taking between 80-100 veterans. It costs $500 to get a veteran to Washington. In November, 100 will make the trip, thanks to money raised by the Professional Fi re F ighters and Paramedics of Mar tin County. P utting together a flight is an enormous undertaking. In addition to the veterans, there are volunteers who pay $400 for the flight. The goal is to have a volunteer for each veteran. Volunteers must be able to push a wheelchair or help a vet stand. Its a tough job. In addition to those volunteers, there are medical staffers on board. The day begins at about 4 a.m., when the vets and volunteers from this area are loaded onto a bus and taken to the VA Hospital in West P alm Beach. They pick up more vets there and have breakfast. I t s choreographed, Mr. R oberts said. We get to Palm B each International airport at 6 a.m. and were in Washington at 8. Its amazing. The Honor Flight hub in Washington greets each flight and sometimes even has a small band. I t s amazing how well things work for an all volunteer organization, Mr. Roberts said. The careful schedule continues with a snack on the way to Arlington and the Tomb of the U nknowns. W e have a dispensation at the T omb to allow buses, Mr. Roberts said. Theyre not allowed unless its an Honor Flight. The group then goes to the WWII Memorial. They stop for lunch and, if there is time, at memorials to a particular service.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Program brings meals, friendship to seniors STUART The Meals on Wheels program, run by the Council on Aging of Martin County, couldnt deliver some 250 meals each day without the help of dedicated volunteers. Mary Thompson has been a volunteer with the program for four years. Ms. Thompson decided to volunteer for Meals on Wheels because her mother-in-law in Wisconsin had r eceived the service there. Although the Thompsons lived in W isconsin at the time, she was not always able to get to her mother-inlaw each day. I t was a good way to make sure she ate a good meal, she said. She couldnt cook for herself and I couldnt always get there. Ms. Thompson had another concern. Her mother-in-law used oxygen and she didnt want her to turn on the stove. Getting a hot meal delivered took care of that worry. M any people cant get out to buy food, Ms. Thompson said. Its hard enough to get them to eat when they dont feel well. With something coming in, it made me feel better, even if I couldnt get there to cook it. M eals on Wheels is about more than delivering food. I t s a way of keeping people in their home as long as possible, Ms. Thompson said. A lot of times they like you to visit. I enjoy that. Its nice to talk, to make sure theyre OK. It may be their only contact with the outside. You can tell if they need help. While the clients the volunteers visit derive a good deal from the visits, so do the volunteers. I t makes you feel good to know that you are helping out, Ms. Thompson said. You never know if y ou might need it. I enjoy visiting with people. One man works on puzzles and Ive taken puzzles over. Y ou see what they enjoy doing. I see how important it is for families to know that their mother or father is getting care. I know how much I appreciated it. You have to give back a little. V olunteering with Meals on Wheels takes a few hours a week, and routes can be shared. Even school groups and businesses can adopt a route and help the community. Krista Kugaraj is the programs V olunteer Coordinator. She has nothing but praise for the volunteers in her program, but had special praise for Ms. Thompson. All of my volunteers go above and beyond, she said. Theyre all great. When people call off at the last minute, I can always rely on calling Mary and shell always say y es. Shes great with the clients, patient and compassionate. When yo u re around her, shes a pleasant spirit who cheers people up. Im blessed to have her around.

Photo courtesy of Mary ThompsonMary Thompson has been working as a volunteer for Meals on Wheels for four years.By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor Guardians advocate for children STUART Maureen Nickel was standing outside the Courthouse in S tuart, talking to a social worker. They both noticed a teenage boy pacing back and forth. H e was in great distress, Ms. N ickel said. He asked if one of us was a guardian. He said he needed one badly because his parents were playing ping pong with his life. The guardian the child was seeking was a Guardian ad Litem, a volunteer, court-appointed advocate for abused, neglected and abandoned children caught up in dependency court proceedings. Ms. N ickel is a Guardian ad Litem and she told the boy she could make no promises but would see what she could do. The case was given to me, she said. One day in court, I asked the families to go to separate rooms so I could speak to both. After that, we had a meeting of the minds about how the boy should be placed. I told them, were here for this boy, not y ou, she said. It finally dawned. They were so wrapped up in their o wn problems. Pro viding a voice for kids has been Ms. Nickels role for 11 years. A r etired teacher, she knows firsthand how families can hurt. I was brought up in a severely dysfunctional family, she said. I had an emotionally disturbed sister and a brother who committed suicide at age 42. Thats how I found this to be my niche. Ms. Nickel is so dedicated that while she lives in St. Lucie West, she travels to Martin County to volunteer. Scarlet fever left her with a slight hearing impairment, and the judge in Port St. Lucie spoke had a low voice she had trouble hearing. Ms. Nickel not only represents children in the courtroom. I visit foster homes, day cares, schools, even jails, she said. I go By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See GUARDIANS, Page 16

The name Cocoa Beach brings many things to mind: the NASA space program, a legendary surfing community and the setting for the longr unning TV series, I Dream of Jeannie. B ut today, the city of Cocoa Beach offers so much more. N estled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River Lagoon, the barrier island of Cocoa Beach is often r eferred to as the jewel of the Space C oast. And it isnt difficult to see why. C ocoa Beach is both a residential community and tourist destination with a base population of 12,800, according to the city of Cocoa Beach W eb site, www.cityofcocoabeach.com. B ut each year that number reaches as high as 30,000 during the peak tourist season when thousands flock to the area to soak up the sun and spend a week or two doing some S pace Coast sightseeing. F or the past several decades, Cocoa B each has done an excellent job of preserving its historic downtown area. Fr om surf shops and clothing boutiques to gift stores and jewelry venues, its easy to make a day out of shopping whether by bicycle or on foot. R estaurants, such as the longstanding Heidelberg and Mango Tree, or weekend hot spots, such as C oconuts on the Beach and the Chili P epper Club, cater to crowds of all ages. Another draw to the multi-faceted city is the beautiful wildlife, fishing opportunities and unique plant species found throughout its waterways.

9MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Our fathers and mothers came home from World War II hailed by a grateful nation as conquering heroes. The evil empires of Germany, Italy and Japan had been defeated and once the surrender was signed aboard the USS Missouri, a celebration erupted all across America. That homecoming and the euphoria that followed resulted in more babies being born that at any other time in U. S. history U nfortunately, when those babies, currently known as baby boomers, grew to be young adults they too had a war to fight. This time however, the lines would not be nearly as defined as in World W ar II. The tiny Asian country of V ietnam was locked in a bloody civil war. To the north was the Viet C ong who were supplied and supported by the communist in China and North Korea. In the south the army of The Republic of V ietnam was supported by the countries of the United Nations, but history would show that South V ietnam would become a protectorate of The United States. Thousands upon thousands of the baby boom generation would either volunteer or be drafted for service there. At home in the states our own revolution had begun. The late 1960s and early s would explode in protests. Civil rights for the races, womens rights, and a strong anti-war sentiment joined the hippie movement to push America closer to an all out civil war than it had been since well, the Civil War. The young people had experienced about all of the war they could take and were now ready to flex their new found muscle. The so-called peaceniks staged massive marches on Washington D.C. and smaller ones all across the nation. Dr aft cards were burned, kids took just enough college classes to evade military duty, while others beat a steady path north to Canada. The flower power bunch adopted the seemingly benign slogan of make love not war. B ut what of the returning G Is and those left to fight a thankless war half way around the world? V ietnam would become the most confusing conflict in American history. Each evening domestic TV would show the bombings and give the daily body count while in country the soldiers constantly heard of the growing anti-war movement at home. Many of the y oung people in the military had themselves embraced the hippie lifestyle before entering the service. Now they were not sure where they stood and even questioned their o wn beliefs. Worse yet, they did not know if they now had the support of their own families and friends. The soldiers fighting the war we re even confused as to who was the enemy. The Vietnamese people looked and dressed similarly and a clear foe seldom could be identified. Even on their rare down time they could trust no one. Many times when the enemy was engaged they turned out to be no more than children. Deadly children, but children all the same. The American troops were not raised to shoot kids and with the true enemy so difficult to detect they adopted the slogan shoot them all and let God sort em out. While that seems a despicable idea it does illustrate the confusion V ietnam vets, like all v ets, should be thanked LAND LINESD AN SMITH See LANDLINES, Page 21

Its like theyre going to summer camp. Im zonked out and theyre chattering away. D enise Belizar of Jensen Beach was a volunteer for one of the flights. I can truly say it was one of the best, and most memorable, days of my life, she said.Honor Flight is well named, because it is truly an honor to accompany these vets to see their memorial.My father was a WWII vet, and unfortunately he didnt live to see the memorial, so I was glad I was able to help others make the trip. M any things struck me that day:the overwhelming support of the Tr easure Coast community for our send-off, the continued accolades for the vets as we journeyed to D.C., the greetings along the way, including from active service members who met the vets at the memorial and so much more.I was so impressed with the excellent organization of the entire day by the Honor Flight members who work so hard to make it a great experience for the vets.They think of everything and take such great care of everyone. Through it all, the vets were humble, overwhelmed with the attention, and protesting that they didnt deserve it.They were extremely touched by the entire experience. F or Mr. Roberts, working with Honor Flight has introduced him to a different type of veteran. They dont all go the American Legion or the VFW, he said. A lot are not involved in activities. These are vets who have put it behind them. My father didnt talk about it either. I just got a letter from a vet. His family sent it. He hadnt talked about the war or gathered with vets since WWII. Some tell me its the best experience they ever had, that they didnt realize how much people cared about what they did. Each veteran receives a videotape of the days events. Mr. Roberts hears from family members that the tapes are played over and over. F or Mr. Roberts, these flights are a tribute to all veterans. I appreciate their service, he said. I hope if I couldnt do it, someone else would do it for my dad.

V olunteers for the Guardian ad Litem program receive 30 hours of training and must take six hours of continuing education training each year to be re-certified. Volunteers work with a case manager and are able to consult with program attorneys, as well. For Ms. N ickel, the draw is working oneto-one with a child. Early on, there was a young lady who cried when I got boots for her for Christmas, she said. S he was 15 and she had been asking for boots since she was eight years old. These days, the community helps fill the gaps in clothing, school supplies and Christmas gifts. W e have a wish list and we put it out to companies who donate things, she said. Its amazing in this economy how w ell they come through. Ms. Nickel is respected by those at the Guardian ad Litem program. Keri Hughes, volunteer r ecruiter said that Ms. Nickel always keeps the best interests of the children at the top of her recommendations to the court. Ms. Nickel found out that she provides a vital service. I guess I realized my importance one day when I asked what would happen if I was not there for a trial. They said they would cancel until I could be there. I r ealized I count and I make a difference. I do have clout. These are my children.

O pened in March 2007, the Lori Wilson Off-Leash Dog Park is a 32,000square-foot paradise for pups and their owners. E quipped with benches, dog toys and obstacles for both large and small doggies, the park serves regular attendees, as well as one-time visitors. While all of these activities are significant to the city, it is the sport of surfing that has helped shape Cocoa B each. F or starters, Ron Jon Surf Shop, which was opened in the early 1960s, is a four-level surf emporium visited by thousands each year. And with six miles of shoreline, there are a number of places for residents and tourists to take on the surf, one of them being the Cocoa Beach Pier. M any East Coast surfing legends, such as Dick Catri and Kelly Slater, got their start surfing those very waves. Mo re than 80 surfers from every generation have been inducted into the citys East Coast Surfing Hall of F ame, which doubles as a public museum. W e developed a concept years ago that, as surfers, we are a society, said Re p. T ony Sasso, R-Cocoa Beach, who grew up surfing in the community and helped conceptualize the surf museum.

17MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG V et helps turn houses into homes STUART Dennis Fadden began thinking about affordable housing when he was stationed in Germany. As an officer, the West Point graduate easily found housing. However, the enlisted men had trouble finding places to live within their means. The notion of affordable housing stayed with him. As a civilian, the company where he worked supported several Habitat for Humanity builds. He was hooked. T oday, Mr. Faddden works in real estate for Coldwell Banker in Stuart. A volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Martin County, he sits on several committees and is a member of the board. I m a firm believer in Habitat, he said. I see a direct correlation to my work in real estate. As a member of the Ma rt in County Realtors Association, I encourage fellow realtors to get involved and give back to the community. Mr. Fadden puts his money where his mouth is. He donates a portion of his commissions to Habitat and he is on a committee to set up a program of planning giving to set cash flow for the future. H abitat for Humanity is celebrating 25 years in Martin County and recently dedicated its 93rd home. Both volunteers and beneficiaries have a r ole to play in making the house a r eality. When we come in, the foundation and concrete walls are in, Mr. Fadden said. The volunteers put on the roof sheet rock the walls, put in flooring, and do the painting. Electrical and plumbing work is done by volunteer professionals. H abitat of Martin County works with Lowes to offer training session in everything from putting down vinyl flooring to hammering nails correctly, to avoid fingers. If power tools are going to be used, Lowes also supplies that training. F or those hoping to have a new home, there is a Family Selection C ommittee. Families fill out an application and if they meet income guidelines, they have an interview where their needs are discussed. I f theyre selected, they must put in a certain number of hours constructing other homes, Mr. Fadden said. If they cant do construction, they can work in some other capacity, supporting the construction, like keeping track of paperwork or. Its tailored to the individual. For families with children, we give them a paintbrush. Were one big family. H abitat has planned several fundraising events, including a R ockathon at Lowes in Stuart on Dec. 12. There will be entertainment for kids, raffles, and rockers: people r ocking in chairs with sponsors donating money as long as they rock. They also plan a repeat of the successful Stud Finder charity auction, in which men in the community donate services such as tennis lessons and gourmet meals for the audience to bid on. This years event, at the new Lyr ic Flagler Center in downtown St uart, will be held on Jan. 26. Mr. Fadden hopes that anyone who wants to volunteer will do so. Its not necessary to wield a hammer. I f someone wants to get involved, we will find a job for them, he said. To v olunteer for the wide variety of opportunities at Habitat for Humanity in Martin County,call Mary Jones, director of volunteer services,at (772) 223-9940,e-mail her at mjones@habitatmartin.org or visit the website www.habitatmartin.org.

21MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG our service people were feeling. When the long war finally ended for the U.S. in late 1973 the returning service people we re not greeted as heroes. There was no celebrations or parades. Instead the American public rushed to forget one of the most distasteful episodes in our history. Also forgotten we re the fighting men and women and the sacrifices they had made. Often they had to endure derision from the malcontents and draft dodgers who had stayed behind. Many could not wait to take off their uniforms. It was not a pretty time in American history. It would be y ears before the Vietnam vets would gain the respect they deserved and take their ri ghtful place alongside past heroes. In r ecent years the American service people who have fought in the Middle East have greatly benefited from the r esidual shame of how the Nam vets were treated. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are every bit as unpopular as was the war in Vietnam but the American populace has learned their lesson well. S oldiers returning from the M iddle East are given the full r espect due them. They can partially thank a Vietnam vet for that. They to are every day Americans who have been called upon to serve in an unpopular war. Not knowing who your friends are or who the enemy is makes the job all the more tough.

B ut its the holidays that bring out the spirit in our happy conglomeration of personalities. Arriving just a few short weeks after H alloween, Veterans Day heralds in the holidays in our world, and that means family dinners. F amily dinners means some really great pot luck food and really great together time, which gets scarcer as our third generation grows older and requires chauffeurs and coaches. P laying the role of moderator (referee) I happily join and oversee lengthy conversations about current events and recent achievements.

26MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2011FOREVER YOUNG T he names the same Until recent generations, the exact spelling of a name did not matter. Words were just sounds, and most people had never had their name actually written. Literacy did not become widespread until the late 1800s.When looking for your family names, let your imagination be your guide. Spelling can vary from person to person, family, generation, document, and also will depend on the person indexing census records. Y ou will almost always find some differences in the spelling of your ancestors name, however, the correct spelling is not as important as determining that it is the correct ancestor. R egional accents and mispronunciations can cause spelling differences. A B may be heard as a P, or a V heard as a W. When spoken, a word can be unrecognizable to someone from a different part of the country. Vow els can become anything the writer chooses. An i can be an e, ie, y, ey, ee. Consonants also change or become single or double, l or ll. I mmigration officers often changed difficult foreign names to more familiar English names. F amilies have often changed their names slightly or entirely, to blend in more with the society into which they are living. Learn to go with your instinct when y ou see a novel spelling for your ancestor. However, you still must dot all the is and cross all the ts to prove that it truly is your ancestor, and not just someone with the same name. Br enda Knight Smith Tr easure Coast Genealogy Society Br endaKSmith@prodigy.net GENEALOGYB RENDA K. SMITH Hey, Congress: My future isnt just a line item If you happened to be walking around C apitol Hill in Washington this week, y ou might have been seeing red.A ctually, maybe more than one kind of red. In addition to the frustration many voters feel, AARP Florida volunteers and staff were among hundreds of AARP members in red shirts, hitting Capitol Hill this week to pass along a very clear, forceful message to Congress: We r e not numbers. Our future is not just a line item in your budget. And we r e definitely not pushovers. So hands off our Social Security and M edicare. In C ongress, a group of 12 very powerful lawmakers is meeting behind closed doors to plan how to cut $1.5 trillion out of the federal budget over 10 years. This group is definitely considering proposals to stick you with higher health costs under Medicare while also possibly cutting your Social S ecurity checks. I nstead of focusing on cutting waste and tax loopholes, theyre treating seniors like were just another budget line-item. Some plans under discussion include: Cutting Social Security by $112 billion, which could cost seniors thousands of dollars over their lifetime. Raising the Medicare eligibility age, which would: Cut benefits for younger retirees Increase out-of-pocket spending for 65 and 66-year-olds by an average of $2,000 per year at a time when many people are already struggling to make ends meet. Increase premiums for people already in Medicare because it would leave older, more costly people in the system. Increase health care costs for businesses because workers would stay on employer plans longer. C ongress is focused entirely on charts, graphs and numbers but no one seems to care about these numbers: Some 3.7 million Floridians depend heavily on Social Security. Another 3 million rely on Medicare for health care. B elieve me, I know exactly how it feels to rely on Medicare. I am a cancer survivor. I am now doing well, thanks to the top-notch care I received under M edicare. You can multiply my story by millions . and thats in Florida alone. In W ashington, the elites sneer about our entitlements. Darn right were entitled we paid in over a lifetime of hard work, so we could count on the benefits when we needed them. And dont try to tell us these benefits are lavish. Even with these benefits, half of all Americans age 65 and older have an annual income of less than $18,500 per year. On average, each one pays $3,000 each year out of their own pocket for medical expenses. Were not getting rich on Social Security. On this issue, AARP members are solidly united. Republicans, Democr ats and independents all agree that its wrong for the supercommittee to cut the benefits they've worked for and depend on. Now s the time for you to raise your voice. Call 1-888-322-1334 to tell your member of Congress that they can start focusing on cutting waste and tax loopholes, or harm 3.7 million Floridians who have worked their entire lives to earn the Medicare and Social S ecurity benefits. And tell them one more thing: We will hold them accountable for making harmful cuts. D oug Heinlen is president of AARP F lorida. AARP PRESIDENTDOUG H EINLEN to tell Mom where you REALLY were the night of your high school prom when the ballroom was evacuated! O h yeah, I think its time Mom found out who REALLY had her car out most of the night when you were too young to have a license, then convinced her she actually did park it in the neighbors yard! I distinctly r emember asking Roy if he knew anything about that incident at the time and being angelically assured he did not Lest I discover hidden truths that would cause me to have retroactive panic attacks, I do some reverting myself To a tried-and-true method of snapping my offspring back into adulthood I read somewhere that its not a crime to step on the American flag H eads snap around and chests expand. What?! Where did you read that? P eople fought and died for that flag! And still are! Roys face begins to r edden again. Cindys eyes flash, I served my country so everyone can have freedom of speech, not to disrespect our flag! Alicia chimes in via the cell phone: M e too! Dont forget me! Dads actually growling. I just love it when a family comes together Especially if they do so before dinner gets completely cold. Jo e, when you enlisted in the military you joined more than one elite group Welcome And please pass the mashed potatoes PS. My favorite bumper sticker reads I f you can read this thank a teacher, if y ou can read it in English thank a veteran I think that about says it all, please take a moment this holiday and every day to say a short prayer for all who are serving so we may be free and their families who are struggling without them.
