MARTIN COUNTY The H umane Society of the Treasure C oast is again "top dog" according to an independent evaluation of thousands of nonprofits nationwide. The local nonprofit won the highest ranking from Charity Navigator, the nation's largest independent charity evaluator. Charity Navigator awarded the H umane Society of Treasure Coast a four-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency, an endorsement of the local group's faithfulness to its donors. The news has served to further endear the Palm City-based organization to supporters, such as Kelly M iller, who said she had new-found r espect for the animal shelter. In assigning the rankings, Charity N avigator evaluates more than 5,600 of the nation's largest charities. Its methods have won praise from well-respected business journals, such as "Forbes," "B usiness Week" and "K iplinger's" financial magazine, for its application of data-driven analysis to the nonprofit sector, said publicist Doreen Poreba, president of the PR Czar.

In one case where a criminal didn't follow that advice, a Martin County man reported he used a credit card to buy gas. N ot long after, he discovered someone had used his credit card to buy a motor kit. He r eturned to the gasoline station and saw a bike with a motor on it.

More photos on page B9.V eteran visits Washington memorialMARTIN COUNTY The enthusiasm of the crowds coming to greet them brought tears to the eyes of Frank Menagh and the other World War II veterans headed on an H onor Flight to visit the W ashington, D.C., memorial that commemorates their service. Cheering crowds waving flags came out to greet the retired soldiers, who traveled in three buses with a police escort and a 12-member motorcycle-club procession to the Veteran's Administration Medical Center in W est Palm Beach before boarding the flight. Fr om about 3 a.m., supporters gathered to show their appreciation to the Stuart man and 84 other retired soldiers heading to the nation's capital. "T o see that many people waiting that early in the morning and wanting to honor us, it brought tears to many of our eyes," said Mr. Menagh, an 86-year-old Navy veteran. H onor Flight Southeast F lorida covered all the expenses to fly the veterans to the D.C. area for a one-day trip to visit the W orld II Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, Iwo J ima Memorial and the changing of the guard at the Unknown Soldier monument. V olunteers or guardians, travelling at their own expense, accompany the veterans, so that each retired soldier has an assigned assistant. Two doctors and two paramedics also make the trip. The thing that touched me the most was that my guardian picked me up at my front door and took me to the Knights of Columbus at about 3 a.m., where there we re cadets saluting us as we came in," said Mr. M enagh. It was the start of a day that saw the former soldier leave his home at to S andhill Cove Retirement Living and embark on a trip that he said showed him and the other veterans the country had not forgotten their service. Organizers and sup-Specialty grocer opens in townMARTIN COUNTY The Fr esh Market, a specialty grocery chain, opened its 26th Florida store with a supermarket in Stuart at 2300 S.E. Ocean Blvd. The new 18,500-squarefoot grocery store is an upscale supermarket with a full-service meat counter, a bakery that produces 30 freshly baked breads and 14 pie varieties daily, offers several ready-to-serve entrŽes, more than 200 imported and domestic cheeses, a large selection of organic produce and seafood that arrives freshly delivered several times per w eek. When customers walk in, they find an environment that's warn and inviting," said Drewry Sackett, the company's media and community relations manager. The publicly traded company has been considering expanding on the Treasure C oast for years, said Stephen S mith, real estate manager. It operates 107 stores in 21 states, including a supermarket in Vero Beach. The company is based in Greensboro, N.C., and does business in the southeast, midw est, mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States, with plans to expand nationwide. "W e had such great brand equity in Florida, and the S tuart and Jensen Beach areas would be such a great market to penetrate both geographically and demographically that we decided this was the right move," Mr. S mith said. The move created 90 jobs, most of which went to Treasure Coast residents, Ms. S ackett said. "W e are excited to open our store in Stuart and to expand our reach in Florida," said Craig Carlock, president and CEO. "W e look forward to introducing The Fresh Market's concept of quality perishables, excellent customer service and a unique atmosphere to an expanded customer base, and we look forward to offering neighboring communities a rewarding new food shopp ing experience."

On their way to Palm B each, Martin County firefighters parked along the sides of streets and overpasses on Interstate-95 to flash their lights in tribute as the soldiers drove past. A dditional supporters waited at the local airport and in Washington to thank the veterans. F or Mr. Menagh, the visit to the memorials was an opportunity to reflect on the time in his life when, as a 17-year-old, he volunteered for sea duty and served three years in the Pacific as a trainer and r adioman on the Destroyer U.S.S. Halford. Du r ing that time, he participated in costal bombardments for nine island invasions including on Guadalcanal, B ouganville, Saipan, Tinian, Guam, the Philippines with Leyte Gulf, Luzon and other islands of Japan. The Honor Flight trip brought to mind a nearfatal encounter in which the U.S. destroyer had a near-fatal encounter with several enemy battle ships, but was able to escape. Looking at the memorial with 4,000 gold stars, each star representing 100 soldiers killed in combat, he found that about 44,000 Americans died in World W ar II. "P eople acknowledge that. The fact that so many people were coming and thanking us for our service just brought tears to our eyes."Conference helped women embrace changeMARTIN COUNTY More than 250 local women participated in the "Women Empowering W omen Conference" on No v. 3 in Stuart, with the purpose of raising their awareness and implementing solutions for the challenges faced by women today. All three keynote speakers approached the stage to motivational music that got the crowd fired up and on their feet like cheerleaders before a big game. S peaker Nancy M atthews, the "Visionary Wi th Guts," shared, "within each of us is a visionary, the guts' comes from having a team to support y ou, encourage you and guide you." G ina Carr, chief tribe builder, advised how to "S hare Your Brilliance with Xteme Social Media M agic" and provided direction for so many attendees on the advantages of social media. Pr esenter, Jane Garee, re vealed to the audience how to uncover their strongest business traits and position themselves for success wearing her colorful boa and at the same time, advising women to be strongwilled, vocal, ambitious and clear about their goals. All attendees networked, shopped, had makeovers, were advised by experts on finance and r eceived homedesign tips by more than 35 local vendors. This was a day filled with inspiring speakers, unique programs and opportunities to expand professional and personal skill sets. We achieved our goal of creating the best networking and professional opportunity for the women on the Treasure C oast," said Robin Delgado, organizer. The hard-working executive committee included: Linda Probst, Tami Ka r ol Nicholas, Susan S omerset Webb, Holly Altman, Ms. Delgado and M elissa Barnes.

MARTIN COUNTY P atients and their families experiencing a medical crisis staying at Molly's House, a hospital hospitality house in Stuart, will soon be seeing a lot of butterflies in thanks to David L. Smythe, a wellknown supporter of nonprofit organizations. Mr. Smythe sponsored the new butterfly garden for $10,000 as part of the serenity garden that is currently under construction in the backyard of Molly's House. Se r enity gardens are a form of relaxation for patients and their families and the new garden will provide a beautiful outdoor r espite during a stressful time. The garden is expected to be completed 2012. Sponsorship and in-kind opportunities are available. In addition to the butterfly garden, the new backyard will feature a rose and oriental garden along with native plants and flora. There will also be a water feature and a pergola donated by Courtyard by that is fully equipped with power, lighting, tables and chairs, and grill accessories. The pergola will accommodate a play area for small children and serve as a special event field. The sidewalks will be made of pavers with several arbors and seating areas strategically placed throughout. F or a truly peaceful, relaxing outdoor experience, the serenity garden will be secluded from busy Ocean Dr ive by a wall of hedges. Architect Lee Henderson, B utterfly Garden designer W endell Cave and surveyor S teven J. Brown, donated their services for this project to Molly's House. Without their support, the garden might still be just a dream.

But there's a limit to that, as one father discovered. Po rt S t. Lucie police said a man allowed his 12-yearold to drive. S he drove the car over a concrete median and struck another vehicle in the parking lot. The father ended up being charged with child abuse and r eckless driving. A dmitting stupidity A Port St. Lucie woman w ent out drinking and later had a car accident in Fo rt Pierce. A friend took her home and after getting some r est, the she realized she had left a damaged car in a parking lot. The woman then came up with the idea of reporting it stolen. B ut after the friend would not go along with the story and told police what happened, the woman admitted to making a false report. What am I going to get for being a dumbass?" the woman asked police as she was being arrested. "I was driving; the road was wet; I crashed. I should have told the truth." The truth may set you free, but it was too late for this woman, who was taken to the St. Lucie C ounty jail.BlotterF rom page A1 V isit us @ www.HometownNewsOL.comS ubscribe Today!Knowledge is a terrible thing to waste...

I never know what kind of problems I am going to be asked to solve and there is always the pressure to get it done quickly. Every call is a different challenge and most of the time it can take a half hour or more just looking around trying to get a handle on what's going on before the actual repairs even start. Vi r us and malware cleanup calls usually always involve running one or more scans to "sweep" the computer for infected files and these scans can r eally run up the clock. There is nothing more frustrating than having to wait for a scan to complete and watching as the progress bar inches its way across the screen. The temptation to do other things while a scan is ru nning is high, but if you do that on an already sick machine, it can just make matters worse. It's best to tackle additional tasks after an infection is cleaned. Let's face it, computer maintenance is expensive. At the typical hourly rate, one unexpected glitch such as a virus infection or r egistry problem can quickly add up to hundreds. And who's to say that next month it won't be something different? And, to add insult to injury, most of the issues that I regularly clean up wouldn't be an issue if people would just take the time to keep their machines properly maintained. "Everyone" knows that they should have their system backed up and their anti-virus up to date, but hardly anyone takes the time to learn how to do it properly, let alone do it every month! M ost computer manufacturers assume that everyone already knows what they need to do to keep their new machine maintained properly, but that can be an unreasonable assumption to make, especially if the new computer owner has little or no experience. And with computers as inexpensive as they are today, more people who have never used one are coming home with powerful systems that can confound even the most seasoned computer user. W ithout proper maintenance it's only a matter of time before something goes wrong and the repair bill can approach the price of a new machine! There's got to be a better way. W ouldn't it be smarter to have an expert set up your machine and then maintain it every month and avoid costly repairs? Doesn't it make sense to have someone who knows what they're doing keep regular tabs on things and nip problems in the bud rather than letting them grow to the point where an expensive service call is inevitable? W ell, I think it is, and I've spent the last couple of months putting together a program that does just that: gives regular computer users a way to keep their machines maintained on a r egular basis at a cost that won't break the bank. What I've put together here, a computer service club, if you will, is a way to offset the high cost of sudden repairs by performing regular monthly "check ups" to make sure things are r unning smoothly. This way we can stop little issues before they become big ones. We want to start out with a clean system, so when a person joins our club, we connect to their system and do a full tune up and get it r unning in tip top shape. Ev en if it's infected with viruses or malware, we'll clean it first. We'll even set up the backup system and make sure it's configured properly. A way to keep your machine maintained COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Counties should help Why is it that local counties refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness? How come it so hard for both counties to create work and affordable housing? There are people out of work or about to lose their jobs and be put out on the street and become homeless. By creating work and affordable housing the counties can all but eliminate homelessness. These same people want to work, even keep their jobs, and also want affordable housing not only for themselves, but for their families. Why is it they look the other way and not solve the problem? This is the reason why we have a bad reputation nationwide; they blame everyone else for their own ignorance. Don't forget about the little guyIn the day and age of Internet shopping, let's try to r emember to patronize our mom and pop businesses in order to keep them alive during this bad time. Small r estaurants also need our help. This area has almost no atmosphere and we do need to hang onto any of the neat, small restaurants we've got. Please eat an extra meal, if you can, at your favorite little hang-out.Concerned about school safetyMy daughter is currently a freshman at a local high school. In the last month, there have been a number of security issues at that school. A student was detained for assaulting a faculty member with a box cutter. On another occasion, there was a huge fight at a football game. I received a phone call from another parent, who urged me to pick my child up from school immediately, because a student had threatened to bring a gun to school. Last week, the school was on "lock down" because officials thought there was a criminal on school grounds. I know that school officials and the sheriff's department are doing all they can to keep my child safe, but I have to wonder if she is truly safe. I paid property taxes just like every home owner. I do not understand why there is not more security on the campuses. If we can afford metal detectors to protect our court houses, why can we not afford to protect our children? Remember Fannie Mae?Mo r tgage giant Fannie Mae has just admitted that it lost an incredible $7.8 billion in the July-September quarter.Guess who is expected to cover their losses?They were egged on by the Dodd-Frank legislation, which is supported by the Obama administration. The really pathetic part is that they have obviously not learned their lessons.They have received $112 billion in taxpayer funds so far, the most expensive bailout in history, and they are continuing their absolutely insane policies.F rivolous law suit? An appeals court has ruled that a group of vegetarian H indus, who were inadvertently served meat at a M oghul Express, can sue the restaurant.Apparently, eating meat is forbidden by their religion. This decision is a prime example of lenient judges. Only in America do we permit such anout-of-control legal system.P otential or achievementW ashington and Tallahassee have poured billions into our public schools but powerful teachers' unions continue to stonewall teacher evaluations based on students' academic proficiency. The education establishment recommends teachers nurture rather than challenge children in the classroom. M any schools embrace the concept of social promotion where pupils move ahead from grade to grade even if they can't read or do basic math. Liberals prefer a system where each child is evaluated on his or her potential, not on his or her actual achievement.No wonder test scores continue to decline.W orms in the woodpile?We suspected there were worms in the wood pile, and now we know who put them there. S tates have, for years, been prohibited from keeping illegal immigrants from the public schools. As a result, taxpayers have been forced to pay the costs of educating them. In 1982, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled states may not deny student access based on whether or not they are here legally. We should have known that liberal judges we re guilty of this outrage. They are the so-called "honorable" members of our S upreme Court. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

The effervescent dentist has practiced on the Treasure Coast for more than a decade, and for most of that time, he's made it a priority to contribute to efforts to help the area's less-fortunate residents. F or about four years, he's worked at the community center, helping care for patients who otherwise would not have been able to afford dental work. "W e've been blessed, and it's important to him to give back," said his wife, Sue Flanary, who also serves as office manager at Family D entistry, a full-service practice. J oining him at his private practice is Mark Berger, a dentist who studied at B oston University and did a one-year general practice dentistry residency in Br ooklyn, where he focused on all aspects of dental implants. "It's a good dynamic we have in the office, and patients trust us," Dr. Berger said. "We have a lot of patients who need dental implants. It's a great way to r eplace missing teeth, so this is an excellent service that many of our patients are very happy to have." P atients seem to sense the generous spirit that guides the doctors' community service. "W e get lots of people who come in and are deathly afraid in the beginning, but once they meet the staff they are very comfortable," Dr Berger said. "That's what we pride ourselves on." The idea of "service" permeates the dentists' private practice. Family Dentistry offers services, such as crown placements, at about half the average market r ate. I've been fortunate in my life, so I need to help, especially at a time like this, when so many people are struggling," said Dr. Flanary, a graduate of Marquette U niversity, a Catholic, Jesuit university in Milwaukee. At F amily Dentistry, patients find the comfort of a private practice, outfitted with modern equipment and fully staffed with hygienists, assistants and clerical staff. The staff and dentists perform a wide r ange of services, including extractions and implants, and clinicians undertake continued education. F amily Dentistry also provides Invisalign braces, which help adults and teens straighten teeth without metal. B ut instead of prohibitive prices, administrators pride themselves on offering fees that put smiles on clients' faces. "W e offer quality care at affordable prices and take most insurance," Dr. Flanary said. "We like to say w e're a private practice with public clinic fees." And at this time of the y ear, Mrs. Flanary suggested patients who have not used all their dental insurance services for the year could ensure they don't lose out on their annual benefits by booking an appointment. F amily Dentistry is located at 2385 S.E.Federal Highway,in Stuart's TJ Maxx plaza.It's open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.Monday to Thursday and by appointments on F ridays.

Then once a month we r econnect and give the system a once over. We encourage people to use this time to ask any questions that they have and we'll address any issues that may have come up over the previous month. We'll verify the system, the anti-virus, the backup and the security settings. And we make sure they are all set for the next month. After a trial run, all of my "club members" seem pretty satisfied and we have been able to nip a few problems in the bud; just the way I planned. If this sounds like something you would like to take part in, drop me a line or give me a call. I'll be happy to answer all of your questions. Sean McCa rthy fixes computers.He can be r eached at (772) 408-0680 or help@ComputeThisOnline.c om (no hyphens).As you know, the holiday season can be joyous, hectic, celebratory and expensive. And while you certainly enjoy hosting family gatherings and giving presents to your loved ones, yo u' ll find these things even more pleasurable if they don't add a lot more weight to your debt load. And that's why you'll want to follow some smart money-management techniques over the next few weeks. To begin with, try to establish realistic budgets for both your entertaining and your gift giving. When you host family and friends, don't go overboard on your expenditures. Your guests will still appreciate y our efforts, which, with a little creativity, can create a w elcoming and fun experience for everyone. As a guiding principal, keep in mind these words attributed to Johann W olfgang von Goethe, the famous German poet and philosopher: "What you can do without, do without." Set a budget and stick to it. And the same rule applies to your gifting. You don't need to find the most expensive presents, or ov erwhelm recipients with the sheer volume of your gifts. This is especially true if y ou, like so many people, have been affected by the tough economy. Everyone y ou know will understand that gifts don't have to be lavish to be meaningful. Fu r thermore, by sticking to a budget, you won't be tempted to dip into your long-term investments to pay for fabulous parties or mountains of gifts. It's never a good idea to tap long-term investments for short-term needs, but it can be especially bad when your investment prices are down, as they may well be this y ear. So if you want to stick to a budget but you don't want to raid your investments, how can you pay for your holiday season expenses? If y ou can spread out your purchases, you may be able to pay for them from your normal cash flow. But if that's not possible, you might want to consider using "plastic," your credit card. Using your credit card does not, by itself, need to amount to a financial setback, especially if you've chosen a card that offers favorable terms and you've already shown the discipline not to over-use that card. Just try to minimize y our credit card usage over the holidays and pay off y our card as soon as you can. Of course, you can make y our holiday season much easier, financially speaking, if you've set up a holiday fund to cover your various expenses. While it's too late to set up such a fund this y ear, why not get an early start on the 2012 holiday season? All you need to do is put away some money each month into an easily accessible account, separate from your everyday accounts. You don't have to put in a great deal, but you do need to be consistent, which is why you may want to have the money moved automatically, once a month, from your checking or savings account to your holiday fund. When next year's holiday season rolls around, you might be pleasantly surprised by how much you've accumulated. B ut for now, following some common-sense, money-management practices can help you get through the holiday season in financial shape and that type of result can get your N ew Year off to a positive start.

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.Almost everyone has r ead Abraham Lincoln's popular saying, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time." I think Abe meant this to be a positive assertion that government may get away with deceiving us for a while, but in the long run, truth justice and the American way will prevail and I think he was right. How ever, it doesn't work that way with unethical car dealers and car buyers. It always has been "caveat emptor" or "buyer beware" when it comes to buying or servicing a car. U nfortunately for a buyer to "beware" he must be aware," that is to say educated, mature, sophisticated and experienced. This excludes a very large segment of our population including the very young, the very old, the uneducated, those with low IQs and those not proficient in the English language. Is this one r eason our regulators and elected politicians don't seem to care or take action with respect to the rampant unfair and deceptive sales practices of a large number of Florida car dealers? M ost elected officials and r egulators are lawyers and are highly educated and sophisticated. They don't have a problem buying or servicing a car. In fact, the car dealer who tries to take advantage of a lawyer, r egulator, or politician is asking for trouble. I sometimes feel that I'm preaching to the choir when it comes to advising people how to avoid getting ripped off by a car dealer. You, my r eaders and listeners, largely fall into the category of the educated and sophisticated, "aware" buyer. Most of you aren't taken advantage of when you buy or service your car because y ou won't allow it. U nfortunately, there are enough uneducated, naive and otherwise vulnerable consumers to feed those unethical car dealers who prey on the defenseless among us. All you have to do is read some of the car ads in the S aturday (the biggest selling day for most car dealers) auto classifieds. To the educated, sophisticated buyer, these ads are actually funny if you can forget the fact that so many fall prey to them and are taken advantage of by the dealers. F or example, it's hard for y ou or me to believe that anybody would respond to an advertisement without r eading the fine print. Many dealers today are advertising prices that, when you r ead the fine print, are understated by many thousands of dollars. When you or I see a dealer stating that the car price is plus "freight" we are educated enough to understand that the law requires the freight cost be already included in the price. A shrewd buyer knows that "dealer list" is not the same thing as MSRP and that a large discount from dealer list" means absolutely nothing. We know that the "lowest price guarantee' is worthless if the dealer reserves the right to buy the car from the other dealer that offers a lower price. There are those who argue that all buyers have the responsibility to guard against unethical sellers, to take care of themselves. In fact, that's the literal translation of the Latin legal term "caveat emptor" let the buyer beware. That's sounds good, but what about the elderly widow whose husband recently died and who never had to make a the decision on a major purchase in her entire life? What about the young person just out of school with no experience in the r eal world? How about the immigrant who struggles with English? S hould we be concerned about our underprivileged classes who often drop out of school because they have to go to work to support themselves or their family? Y ou and I know lots of good people who, for one r eason or another, simply can't cope with a slick car or service salesman. My bottom line is this: since we can't rely on our r egulators and politicians to protect those who "can be fooled all the time", maybe we ow e it to society to protect these folks. If y ou know someone who is thinking about buying a car or has a service problem with her car and y ou feel she may not have the ability to fend for herself with the car dealer, offer your support. If yo u' re one of the people who needs support, ask someone who can go toeto-toe with a car dealer to come with you when you are car shopping. By the way, nobody, sophisticated or not, should car shop alone. Two heads are always better than one and it's always a good idea to have a witness to what was said during a negotiation. And, of course, if you don't have the time to help a person or you're that person, you can always call me. I'm always here for you. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 25, 2011 Martin County A9 759800GRANADA PLAZA 2311 NW FEDERAL HWY STUART692-22451 MILE SOUTH JENSEN BCH BLVD EAST SIDE OF US 1 TRADING AND SELLING QUALITY P APERBACKBRING THIS AD IN FOR $5 STORE CREDIT.CREDIT TO BE USED TOWARDS 1/2 STORE P URCHASE BOOKEXCHANGENOWOPENN NO OW WO OP PE EN N 759838 75984926th Annual Hobe Sound Chamber ofCommerceChristmas ParadePr oudly sponsored by Tr easure Coast Irrigation/Rood Landscape,LLC Br idge Boat & RV Storage and Martin County Re development AgencyGr and Marshall,SheriffRobert Crowder Saturday,December 3rd,1:00pm Dixie Highway and Bridge Road Cr aft Stroll at Mars and Dixie 10:00am 3:00pm Co me help kick offthe holiday season and enjoy a great family day in Ho be Sound!! 686128 686131Jamie L.

TREASURE COAST H ibiscus Children's Center has launched its 2011-12 annual support campaign. F or more than 25 years, H ibiscus Children's Center, along with support from the community, has been fulfilling the vision of its Founder, LaVaughn Tilton. H er dream was to create a safe haven for abused and neglected children in our community. Today, its partners have helped the center protect vulnerable children and provide prevention, intervention and recovery services for abused and neglected children and families in crisis across the Treasure C oast. Ev ery month, more than 1,100 children and families are provided critical services to help repair broken lives and strengthen families through the Tilton Family Children's Shelter in Jensen B each, the Hibiscus Children's Village in Vero Beach, the Hibiscus foster care program and the Hibiscus mental health and community outreach programs with offices in Fort Pierce and O keechobee. This year, Martin County campaign co-chairs, Tony Losh of Comerica Bank and Ju die Price; Indian River campaign chairman, Clay Pr ice of Harris, Cotherman, J ones, Price & Associates; and St. Lucie County campaign chairman, Michael W aninger, will spearhead the campaign throughout the region. U nder their leadership, the goal of the 2011-12 H ibiscus Children's Center campaign is to raise $900,000 to directly support H ibiscus' mission. Each day I have the unique vantage point of seeing a dynamic organization of volunteers and staff working together to positively impact the lives of children with serious needs," said T om Maher, CEO. "F or over 25 years, Hibiscus has sheltered children, strengthened families, nurtured futures. Our commitment is unwavering as we move forward to continue helping improve the lives of children and our community's support is critical to accomplishing this important goal".

A pparently, my Uncle K enneth found my new career shocking, pitiful and humorous, all at the same time. I was home in Pennsylvania for the first time since I began my first year of teaching. I was there for a funeral where I saw my U ncle Kenneth for the first time in years. When he asked what I was doing now that I had graduated, I explained that I was teaching high school and middle school English at The Pine School, an independent school in F lorida. His reaction stunned me. I am well aware of the under-appreciation of the teaching profession, but I've also been lucky enough to grow up in a time and place in which people don't usually profess this kind of overt disrespect. "Y ou mean I should have been something like a business person?" I was confused and desperate to respond. "I 'm very happy with what I've done, and I'm very happy with what I'm doing." I looked at my grandmother, whose face was as r ed as mine, and we both knew it time for us to leave. I've done some thinking about what exactly my uncle might have meant. M aybe he was thinking of something like that most horrible adage (dare I even write it): "Those who can't do, teach." M aybe he was thinking that with my education I could be "doing" something, rather than teaching it. I look around me at the passionate, professional colleagues with whom I work, and I can tell you that I have never in my life seen people who do more. In fact, they do it so well that they are able to teach it and inspire others to do it, too. Though conscious of the privilege that I know it affords me, I am very proud of my education and what I've done. I am most proud, privileged and honored, however, to be a teacher. M ost likely my uncle also mistakenly believed that I, like he, would see my education as a means to make as much money as possible, in which case teaching would obviously be a less than-logical choice. I'm teaching because my teachers were extraordinary. As a great friend and an English teacher once said, "We are in the business of making meaning." My o wn teachers taught me how to see the world in a meaningful way and to articulate my own perspective within it. They showed me that education is not just a means to a more lucrative end, but rather, a way of learning to understand, interpret and find significance in what's around me. As I reacted to my uncle's comment, I was infuriated at first not for myself, but r ather for my own teachers, the extraordinary, tireless people who have made me who I am and taught me how I want to live. I know the lack of appreciation for teachers is nothing new. I am certainly in no position to speak about or represent the plight of veteran teachers who have experienced these attitudes for generations. B ut I'm able to feel immensely proud to count myself as part of this educational community. No w, as I write this, I re alize that I'm doing exactly what a great teacher once asked of me and in turn, what I ask my English students to do every day: take a small event and make it meaningful. I ask them to try to understand that moment, either in literature or in the world around them, and to articulate something important about it. I take this strange, unfortunate question from my uncle in Pennsylvania, and I use it to remember how utterly proud I am of what I do and the people with whom I work. I'm happy to be at school,and I'm happy to be home. A dison Lax teaches E nglish at The Pine School. KNOWLEDGEISATERRIBLETHING TO W ASTE... www.hometownnewsol.comSubscribe Today!

"W e are committed to offering the communities we serve the best possible cardiovascular care," said Ma rk E. Robitaille, president and chief executive officer of Martin Memorial Health Systems. "W e have an incredible team of physicians and clinical staff, who combine skill, professionalism and compassion to provide exceptional cardiov ascular care to residents of the Treasure Coast." Ma r tin Memorial partners with cardiologists at Ca r diology Associates of S tuart, Stuart Cardiology Group and Florida Heart C enter, as well as the O cala Heart Institute for open-heart surgeries. The creation of the heart center was made possible, in part, thanks to the generosity of the Fr ances Langford Foundation. The foundation demonstrated its support of the community by providing a leadership gift of $5 million, which assisted the Martin Memorial F oundation in raising more than $18.5 million to fund the cost of developing the heart program.

The event was held at the organization's sanctuary, located on 23 acres in Palm City. G uests enjoyed live music, lunch, a variety of activities for the entire family and a silent auction. Bidding on a variety of items, from a private helicopter ride to fine jewelry and objets d'art, participants good-naturedly opened their wallets and hearts to vie for prizes and benefit the cats. This year's VIP lounge had a "Sun and Sand" theme. Guests relaxed in the serene setting as they enjoyed complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres before returning to the main festival. Mo re than $41,000 was r aised at the event to cover operating costs for the upcoming year. The sanctuary houses approximately 175 cats, and an additional 30 or more cats and kittens are cared for in foster homes prior to adoption. The organization also offers a low-cost feline spay and neuter program on a weekly basis.

The blues have arrived along with the macs and have made for some good fishing. Anglers casting spoons had plenty of takers. Anglers casting cut bait had plenty of takers also you just had to find their zone. C asting a spoon you cover the area, cut bait you have to pay attention.Cast out y our bait and give it some time then move it in, once y ou get the strike you have to cast back to that area that is the zone. P lenty of jacks and yes, there were some pompano, but for them you needed to spend a lot of time finding their zone.Pompano have been there early and late but not for very long, they have been on the move. Anglers pay attention to the way they are moving and y ou move the same direction, north or south just get ahead of them. Fa vored bait has been sand fleas, anything else the blues and macs will eat, so stick with the fleas. Now if we just can get a few days in with out the big surf of weed mats we can have a fish fry. W ind has kept most anglers on the east side of the river. Great trout bite they know the season is closed but the red fish bite has been as strong. From N ettles Island north to R ound island lots of red fish. The spoils north of North Br idge provide shelter from the wind and some excellent conditions for the reds. Fr om Bear Point south to N ettles, lots of reds, best part is they are chewing, live baits soft rubber and spoons all are getting attention. Problem, blues, macs, jacks and lady fish are all there and just as hungry, so bring some extra baits y ou will use them. P ompano are in the Sail F ish Flat and at the bridges, not a lot, but still enough to keep your attention. No special time you just have to be there.Snook anglers do not mind the wind and busy water, Flair Hawks all week in the low light, plenty of fish, just a few in the slot. B lack fins at the Hill and a few dolphin, sails in 80 feet on out to 130 feet, with a mix of a few dolphins and to the south more dolphins, small but there. It has been a scattered w eek with big seas, so not too many anglers were comfortable going out. This FISHINGHENRY CAIMATTO See FISHING, B9 See OUT, B9

"G iving sailing lessons is a really fun, unique and great gift." The local U.S. Sailing Center is one of only four nationwide. Its staff and volunteers recommend giving a membership gift to someone who already knows how to sail. A dult memberships cost $395 annually for unlimited use of sail boats and no guest fees. Junior memberships are also available for children 18 and younger. F or beginners, they suggest a package of sailing lessons. A 12-hour course costs about $200. F or a one-time gift, consider a sail boat ride, a two-hour trip that costs about $60. Often, sailboat lessons and rides lead to membership, because once y ou learn to sail you want to keep doing it," Mr. Jenkinson said. And these aren't just good gifts for Christmas or the holidays. People give them year round, because sailboat rides are always something unique, different from opening a present. They're ideal for individuals, families and couples."

6Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 It doesn't take a genius to figure out that one of the most popular gift-giving categories is electronics. J ust wander into Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving and check out the unruly mob of shoppers and the long lines at the checkout lanes. Lots of people like to give or receive gadgets for the holidays. B ut which one to choose? It's always a daunting question, even for the experienced gadget freak. He re are some guidelines that might help, from someone who has bought more than his share of cutting-edge electronics over the past 30 years. T ablets: No question about it. T ablets are the hottest thing out there these days and there are an increasing number to choose from. The two top sellers this year are likely to be two new 7-inch models the Amazon Kindle Fire and the N ook Tablet from Barnes & Noble. B oth are Android-powered devices but the Nook boasts more storage 16GB versus 8GB on the Fire and is more expandable with a micro SD slot. The biggest appeal of these two new tablets will likely to be their low prices, $199 for the Fire and $249 for the Nook. No matter which one you choose, that's a real bargain compared to the industry-leading Apple iPad, which starts at about $500. The iPad has a bigger screen, is more powerful and probably is still the only choice for A pple fanatics. But if you just want to find out what the big deal is about tablets, and don't want to spend an arm and a leg, the Kindle Fire and N ook Tablet probably will be good choices. Both tablets will be capable of streaming HD video (albeit from different specific collections) and tapping into each store's respective music and print libraries, as well as r unning a special collection of apps. B oth are wi-fi only. No 3G option.

677795 TREASURE COAST You know that saying, "Think outside the box?" This holiday season, it's a good idea to do the opposite. The Band Box, a Stuart shop that specializes in wind instruments, offers alternatives to gifts carted out from department stores. I ts brass and wood-wind selections r ange from instruments suitable for beginners to those crafted for elite musicians. As far as the instruments go, we cover a broad range," said owner Carlyle Weber, a retired member of the U.S. Army Field Band of Washington, D .C., who spent 23 years touring with the military and now plays trombone and euphonium, a baritone horn, with several large local jazz bands.9Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 F riday, November 25, 2011 Approach thrift store shopping like holiday treasure hunt MARTIN COUNTY Diane T omasik has come across her share of bargain hunters. As communications director for House of Hope, the nonprofit that operates food pantries, thrift stores and delivers other services in the county, she knows more residents are trying to increase their purchasing power in a tough economy. The trick to thrift store shopping, she said, is figuring out each store's specialty and taking advantage of each best deal. "E very thrift store is a treasure trove," she said. "At House of Hope, for example, we have four stores, and every one has a different character." The Stuart and Hobe Sound stores usually get donations of beautiful crystals and knick knacks, the kinds of gifts children like to purchase for their mothers. O ther stores have boutique sections stocked with designer clothes, jewelry and accessories that sell for about one-tenth their retail price. When I go, I never have any expectations. I just browse and see what, if anything, I find," said Cindy R ander, a shopper at House of Hope's S tuart store, located at Stuart, located at 2484 S.E. Bonita St. O pen-minded browsing is a great strategy for bargain hunters, said Ms. T omasik. K eep an eye out for holiday decorations, other decorative items, jewelry and other hidden treasures that might make good gifts for shoppers with a limited budget, she said.

F or about $25, a gift giver can put a loved one on the road to a new hobby or passion with a music lesson.

O ther gift options are plentiful, including r eeds, cleaning kits, instrument stands, neck straps, oils for valves, specialty cases and mutes to produce different tones in brass instruments. "W e also have many everyday accessories wind musicians would need for their horns, and items that are fun for wind players," Mr. Weber said.

MusicF rom page 9 Hello, smart shoppers. Let's make an amazing Christmas appetizer. Fo r as far back as I can r emember, artichokes we re one of my favorite foods. If you've never had an artichoke, there's no time like Christmas to try one. It's not something served at many tables and they can be expensive, but it is a gourmet treat you must try. Artichokes are nutrient dense and high in fiber. If yo u' re having a small intimate dinner, nothing can compare to stuffed artichokes. The ways I remember eating artichokes are stuffed, marinated or with oil and garlic. Every r ecipe I've ever read has you dipping the leaves in either butter or hollandaise sauce. Mayonnaise and aioli are other popular choices.

13Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 F riday, November 25, 2011 Plant safety tips so you can enjoy beauty Hi, everybody. With the holidays getting into full swing, many of us are going to purchase one or more colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia. These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If y ou have pets that have a habit of chewing your plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the real thing and you can reuse them year after year. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe. U sing mistletoe as a decor ation is a tradition that has been carr ied out for centuries. During Pagan times, troops at war who met with the presence of mistletoe were required to lay down their weapons and unite in a day of truce. Mistletoe was also used during rituals that celebrated the winter solstice. It was used as a symbol of the eventual return of the sun. In Christianity, mistletoe has been used as symbol of love ever since the M iddle Ages. During this era, mistletoe was blessed by a priest and all those who walked under it kissed as a sign of friendship and all bad feelings were extinguished. In modern times, the tradition of being kissed under the mistletoe is still in full force. A trip to your local holiday shop will usually yield both live and artificial versions of this popular holiday plant. The "live" mistletoe plant is toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of small children and pets. As long as it is not ingested, this plant can still create a warm feeling of friendship to all who walk under it. Li ve Christmas trees. Although live trees are the main symbol of this great day, they can pose hazards if not handled and cared for properly. The main hazard from live trees is fire. When you first bring your tree home, be sure to cut a slice off the bottom before placing it in its new location. This will help the tree to absorb water faster, which will greatly lengthen its useful life. There are many products on the market that are labeled as "tree savers" that are useful in helping the tree to absorb water faster and over a longer period of time. It is important when choosing the location for your new tree to place it away from any heat sources or sparks. In the past, using faulty Christmas lights that either shorted out or sparked has caused most treer elated fires. In addition, lights that produce too much heat can be a problem on a tree that has been in use for an extended period of time. T oday, one of the best ways to stay safe is to use the new LED lights that are available for decorating. They look great and besides running cooler than other lights, they also save you green. They use a fraction of the power of conventional lighting methods. Us e only UL-approved extension cords and power strips. Using LED lights will not create as much as a load on your extension cords and power adapters. W ith the availability of a large selection of artificial trees, for many people this will be a great alternative to the live tree. Most are now in three pieces with all the lights already attached and they last year after year saving you lots of money over time. As you can see, with some common sense practices, you can stay safe this holiday season.

E xpect most of those to be quite a bit cheaper than a comparable iPad (although probably not as cheap as the Fi r e) after Thanksgiving, if not earlier. All run on the Android operating system, which will look and feel different from the custom-built versions of the same OS used on the K indle Fire and Nook Tablet. Any of those larger tablets would be a good choice if you want a bigger screen than the Fire and Nook have, but don't want to spend the big bucks for an iPad. E xpect to pay between $300 and $450, depending on the size and features. M any tablets offer the same 3G option as the iPad, but the best advice is to skip that unless you are sure you need it. A tablet that can access the cellular network is not only more expensive on the front end, it costs the user $30 a month or more for a data plan. Wi-fi only tablets don't require a data plan. Also, you probably should avoid the no-name" tablets. They may cost a lot less but there's a reason for that. Noname tablets are likely to suffer from poor reliability and build quality, dated or closed operating systems, and/or a lack of applications that will run on them. If price is no object, the iPad is still the best of the bunch. E-book readers : This was a hot category last year and is likely to be even hotter this year, again thanks to Amazon. It has cut the price on its base K indle e-reader to $79, about $50 less than last year. That model would be the best choice if you want the best deal and are a big reader. The black and white e-ink screen on the Kindle is easier on the eyes over the long haul than color models and is readable even in bright sunlight. If y ou want to spend a little more and like the idea of a touch screen, there are two good choices: for $99, you can get a touch-screen version of the K indle or the competing Barnes & N oble Nook Simple Touch. Barnes & N oble recently slashed the price of its N ook by $40 so it can compete headto-head with the Kindle. These two r eaders are very similar so the decision comes down to personal taste. Study each model, including the libraries they can access, and choose the one y ou like the best. Most color tablets can also be used as e-readers, but don't work as well as the dedicated blackand-white readers, whose e-ink display most closely mimic the printed page. S till, Barnes & Noble does make a color version of its Nook e-reader and r ecently cut the price from $250 to $199. S martphones: These gadgets are always a popular choice for gift giving, since almost everyone can use one and new models seem to hit store shelves on almost a daily basis. Apple's new iPhone 4S is a good choice for Apple fans and newcomers to the smartphone world, since the OS is arguably better than the many Android competitors and the apps are often more capable. And with prices starting around $199 (with two-year contract), it won't break the bank. Opt for the older, but almost as capable iPhone 4 if money is tight, it starts at $99, half the price of the 4S Or the even older iPhone 3GS, which in some cases, is free with a two-year contract. The iPhone 4 looks almost identical to the 4S but lacks the 4S internal improvements, including a faster processor and better camera. On the Android front, the choices are more numerous and complicated. Among the newest offerings is the S amsung Galaxy Nexus, due in midNo vember and the first to run on the new Android 4 operating system code named Ice Cream Sandwich. This dualcore phone is 4G LTE capable, the fastest data service available, and has a larger screen than the iPhone. Prices have not been set but expect to pay between $200 and $300 (with contract) to have this latest and greatest smartphone. Other options include the lesspopular, Windows-based and Blackberry phones. Steer clear of those unless you need any special features they may offer. Apple and Android are now the dominant players in the cell phone marketplace. F or those who don't need the latest technology but still want the convenience of a cell phone, consider a payas-you go service such as Tracfone. If y ou don't need a lot of minutes or the most modern smart phone, you can get a year's worth of cell phone service for less than $9 a month (you also have to buy the phone, which generally costs from $20 to $50). HDTV: Pr ices continue to fall on HDTVs, while the feature set improves. The sweet spot can found in the 46inch to 50-inch models, which are now going for as little as $500 and are likely to go even lower as the holidays approach. The price of 32-inch modelsElectronicF rom page 6 See ELECTRONIC, 17 686591Enjoy the longest running narrated airboat tour on the Treasure Coast!

17Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 F riday, November 25, 2011 is now routinely below $300. That could make HDTVs a good choice for gift giving this year. The big push this holiday season, however, will be the more expensive models with wired or wireless Internet connectivity, which is usually tied to a feature often called Smart TV. These T Vs have built-in apps, similar to the ones found on smartphones. There are lots of different apps, but most consumers probably will focus on those that allow for the direct streaming of movies or TV shows, including Hulu, V udu, Netflix, CinemaNow, Blockbuster and others. Y ou can also buy stand alone boxes from a variety of companies that do much the same thing or Blu-ray players that include the Smart TV feature. In concept, this is a good idea. But the implementation is lacking in my experience. Smart TV features can be slow and clunky, and just don't bring much usefulness to the party unless y ou don't have cable. They are certainly not worth paying a huge premium for. D itto for the other HDTV gimmick that was the hot ticket last year, 3D. It works, but content is limited and you need to buy a special 3D Blu-ray player to watch 3D Blu-ray movies and the glasses you have to wear are a pain. If y ou can get 3D or smart TV for little or no extra money, go for it. But generally speaking you're better off sticking with a good basic HDTV. Look for a namebrand LCD or plasma model in the size that best fits your budget with 1080p r esolution (that's less important on screens less than 40 inches). Picture quality and reliability have improved to the point now where almost all available models are very good. However, if y ou want a TV with the widest viewing angles, go for a plasma set. If price is no object, go for the absolutely huge 80-inch LCD HDTVs that are available this year. Cost: about $5,000. GPS: Like nearly every other electronic device, the cost of stand alone GPS units has been falling fast in r ecent years. They start at less-than $100 and you can get a top-of-the-line model, with voice recognition for around $300. While the el-cheapo models work, most consumers will be happier with a more advanced model with features like text-to-speech (the names of the roads are spoken), laneassist (tells you more about the next turn, including the number of turn lanes, which side of the road the exit is on) and Bluetooth (pairs with your B luetooth phone for hands-free phone calls). Stick with a name brand, such as Ga r min, Tom-Tom or Magellan and go for at least a 4.3-inch screen. The larger 5-inch screens don't cost a lot more so if you like idea of a bigger screen, go for it. Speech recognition, which allows you to control the device with voice commands, also is a convenient feature but sometimes it is not well implemented. Check online r eviews before you buy. Lifetime maps and traffic service are also are desirable features if you plan to keep the GPS unit for more than a year. O dds and ends: If y ou or someone y ou know suffers from remote control clutter, solve it with a unified remote that allows you control everything with one device. I have tried lots of them but the best I have found is the Harmony One from Logitech. It handles up to 15 devices and all programming is done via the Harmony One Web site, so there are no frustrating multinumber codes to enter. And when you are done, it's easy to start your TV, stereo receiver, cable box, DVD or Blura y player and gaming devices with one touch. The customizable LCD touch screen on the Harmony One is activity based. So to watch TV, you simply choose "watch TV" and all the correct devices come on with all the r ight settings. Ditto for "play video games" or play DVD." The Harmony One is not cheap between $150 and $200, and the setup can be challenging. But it can save you a lot of headaches and allow you to shove all those other remote controls into a drawer somewhere. (Harmony also makes less expensive versions starting at around $30 that can be programmed online.) Another good inexpensive gift from someone who has an iPod or other music device that supports Bluetooth is a good pair of wireless Bluetooth stereo headphones. Everyone who has ever used earbuds knows the cord that connects the earpieces to the player can be a pain. Bluetooth headphones, which cost between $30 and $100, allow you to get rid of the cord, without loss of sound quality. Shop online for the best selection and price, since these gadgets are scarce and expensive in most area retail stores.

19Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 F riday, November 25, 2011 to do is, I would have to say teaching a little child how to eat an artichoke. Tr ivial? No. Sheer joy! If yo u' ve never eaten one, come along with me and we'll learn how. The base, or heart, of the artichoke is the part you want to eat. Ev ery time you pull a leaf off the base, it has a little piece of the delicious heart clinging to it. You do not eat the whole leaf; you put it between your teeth and then pull the leaf out, catching the pillow of flesh with your teeth. When my granddaughter, Meagan, was 2, she watched her daddy, S teve, eat an artichoke and reached out for it. When I asked her if she wanted to try one, she shook her head yes. How do you explain to a 2 y ear old that "bite down" does not mean hang on for dear life? She clamped her teeth down on that leaf as I struggled to pull it out of her mouth. Once she got a taste of the delicious flesh, though, she quickly learned the proper technique. Once all of the leaves have been pulled off and enjoyed, you are left with the "choke" and the heart. You never want to learn what the “choke” in artichoke really means. The inedible florets in the center of the vegetable will most definitely make you choke and must be r emoved. Getting to the artichoke heart is like getting to the prize at the bottom of a cereal box. It is superb and can be eaten out of hand or used in many dishes. You can also peel the stem, slice and cook it with the artichokes. Enjoy, see you next week! STU STU F F F F E E D AR D AR TI TI C C H H O O KE KE S S Ser Ser ves 4 ves 4 4 large artichokes 3 cups soft bread crumbs, (four slices of bread) 1 tbsp. parsley flakes or few sprigs chopped Italian parsley 1/2 tsp. each, dried oregano and salt 1/4 tsp. black pepper 1/4 lb. fresh mushrooms, chopped (optional) 4 cloves garlic, chopped 1/3 cup grated, imported Parmesan cheese 1/2 cup lightly toasted pine nuts, coarsely chopped Extra virgin olive oil Dr y white wine, such as chablis or Chardonnay Pr epare artichokes by cutting the stem end even with the bottom.

21Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 F riday, November 25, 2011 Gifts golfers will enjoy Happy holidays! Just in case y ou are stumped on what to get that special golfer on your holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Bruce Si z emore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke ( www.superstrokeusa.com ), the company with the ov ersize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the S uper Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. You can even custom build your own right on the website for an even more perfect fit. If y ou know someone who's not swinging the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edge's ( www.touredge.com ) new Bazooka HT M ax-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots. The deep face, huge sweet spot and advanced w eighting technology combine to deliver explosive power and accuracy. B est of all, the driver retails for under $150 and the fairways under $120 and come with Tour Edge's lifetime warranty and a 30-day, performance guarantee. If y our golfer loves to travel, the D atrek Golfs ( www.datrekgolf.com ) three-piece travel set may be the perfect gift. The set includes a golf bag travel cover with wheels, a duffle bag and a shoe bag for under $100. The travel cover features lots of padding and extra pockets and also has in-line skate wheels for a smooth, easy r oll. The duffle bag is just the right size for a carry-on. Ev ery golfer could use some practice. I mproving your putting is the quickest way to lower your score. Fan Mats and T our Links ( www.TourLinks.net ) has combined the logo from your favorite professional team, or college or military branch into its new line of putting greens. These greens feature club-speed turf with adjustable breaks and two regulation cups and pins. The 4-foot by 10foot green is ready for use in any indoor or outdoor space. Molded from high impact polymers, the patented design makes installation a snap. K angarila ( www.kangarila.com ) is a new way of playing golf that will add an extra level of fun or frustration to your game. In this game the balls act as dice. The balls are printed with the names of different clubs such as "wedge" or "7iron." You tee off and hit your Kangarila golf ball. When you arrive at the ball, the side facing up will tell you which club you must use for your next shot. It 's a great way to add some fun and improve your shot-making skills. You can even just choose one or two holes each round where you play the Kangarila balls. While we don't experience snow and seldom see freezing temperatures for any extended period of time, we F loridians still need jackets and sweaters. A bacus Apparel ( www.abacus-outdoor.com ) is the company that outfitted the European Solheim Cup team. I ts new pebble fleece jacket is perfect for those cool days that we see in the winter here. The soft, warm polyester fleece features a full-length front zipper and flat-lock seams that allow you to stay warm and unrestricted while swinging. The newest apparel from Sunice ( www.sunice.com ), outfitter to the U.S. S olheim Cup team, is its Typhoon Collection. The company has added the benefit of full-stretch to this line. Now in addition to a breathable, lightw eight, quieter performance fabric, y ou get the benefit of a garment that stretches with you while keeping the wind and rain away. B ooks are another great gift idea. S tuart resident Judy Alvarez is a world re nowned golf instructor and "Golf GOLFJAMES STAMMER See G OLF, 22 685698 686575

26Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, "Oh, that's great, I'll have to get in there," and then drive by months later and realize that I have yet to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen various advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when it's locally owned; it's not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It 's personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the r ealization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. W ithout our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by t hose who live among us. Su re I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. It's nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local restaurants only. There's something to be said about walking into a place "where everyone knows your name." N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are owned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. B ecause it's not just business, it's personal. S teve Erlanger is publisher and chief operations officer for H ometown News. Make your holiday shopping more personal PUBLISHER, CHIEF OPERATING OFFICERSTEVE ERLANGER Dos, don'ts of holiday travel The holidays are a festive time of year, but they can also prove stressful for the millions of people who travel to visit friends and family or use time off during the holidays to go on vacation. Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nation's roadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. While there's not much travelers can do to reduce the number of fellow travelers come the holiday season, there are certain dos and don'ts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a recipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel it's more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While it's possible to find last minute airline deals, it's very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. That's potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement w eather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DON'T blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but it's exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient interrupted travel plans can be, it's never the fault of the person working at the airport. It's often a result of inclement weather, which is something no one can control. Should travel plans be delayed or cancelled, r emain courteous, compassionate and r espectful of staff. Doing so is the right thing to do, and it might just garner you some consideration when the time comes to reschedule plans. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. H eavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in r elatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from regions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. I nsurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. The peace of mind insurance provides can also reduce the stress of holiday travel. DON'T try to make up for lost time. While there's little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often overcrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are rarely ideal. Even if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, don't risk disaster with aggressive driving. Instead, call your destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the roadway. No matter where y ou are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family member's house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound, even if that means getting there a little later than originally planned. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you won't have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the road before most drivers are even out of bed. It might not be fun to get up so early, but y ou will likely start your trip off with little to no traffic. DON'T overdo it. It 's tempting to try to see everyone during the holiday season, but most travelers would prefer to stay in one place for more time than to continue traveling from place to place without spending much time at any one place. Tr aveling too much can lead to exhaustion, which is especially dangerous for those traveling by automobile. If possible, spread out holiday travel as much as you can, and attempt to spend at least two nights sleeping in the same bed before hitting the road again. H oliday travel doesn't have to be so difficult. Adhering to a few dos and don'ts can make this year's holiday travel far less stressful. Metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News

More photos on page B9.V eteran visits Washington memorialMARTIN COUNTY The enthusiasm of the crowds coming to greet them brought tears to the eyes of Frank Menagh and the other World War II veterans headed on an H onor Flight to visit the W ashington, D.C., memorial that commemorates their service. Cheering crowds waving flags came out to greet the retired soldiers, who traveled in three buses with a police escort and a 12-member motorcycle-club procession to the Veterans Administration Medical Center in W est Palm Beach before boarding the flight. Fr om about 3 a.m., supporters gathered to show their appreciation to the Stuart man and 84 other retired soldiers heading to the nations capital. T o see that many people waiting that early in the morning and wanting to honor us, it brought tears to many of our eyes, said Mr. Menagh, an 86-year-old Navy veteran. H onor Flight Southeast F lorida covered all the expenses to fly the veterans to the D.C. area for a one-day trip to visit the W orld II Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, Iwo J ima Memorial and the changing of the guard at the Unknown Soldier monument. V olunteers or guardians, travelling at their own expense, accompany the veterans, so that each retired soldier has an assigned assistant. Two doctors and two paramedics also make the trip. The thing that touched me the most was that my guardian picked me up at my front door and took me to the Knights of Columbus at about 3 a.m., where there we re cadets saluting us as we came in, said Mr. M enagh. It was the start of a day that saw the former soldier leave his home at to S andhill Cove Retirement Living and embark on a trip that he said showed him and the other veterans the country had not forgotten their service. Organizers and sup-Specialty grocer opens in townMARTIN COUNTY The Fresh Market, a specialty grocery chain, opened its 26th Florida store with a supermarket in Stuart at 2300 S.E. Ocean Blvd. The new 18,500-squarefoot grocery store is an upscale supermarket with a full-service meat counter, a bakery that produces 30 freshly baked breads and 14 pie varieties daily, offers several ready-to-serve entres, more than 200 imported and domestic cheeses, a large selection of organic produce and seafood that arrives freshly delivered several times per w eek. When customers walk in, they find an environment thats warn and inviting, said Drewry Sackett, the companys media and community relations manager. The publicly traded company has been considering expanding on the Treasure C oast for years, said Stephen S mith, real estate manager. It operates 107 stores in 21 states, including a supermarket in Vero Beach. The company is based in Greensboro, N.C., and does business in the southeast, midw est, mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States, with plans to expand nationwide. W e had such great brand equity in Florida, and the S tuart and Jensen Beach areas would be such a great market to penetrate both geographically and demographically that we decided this was the right move, Mr. S mith said. The move created 90 jobs, most of which went to Treasure Coast residents, Ms. S ackett said. W e are excited to open our store in Stuart and to expand our reach in Florida, said Craig Carlock, president and CEO. W e look forward to introducing The Fresh Markets concept of quality perishables, excellent customer service and a unique atmosphere to an expanded customer base, and we look forward to offering neighboring communities a rewarding new food shopp ing experience.

A dditional supporters waited at the local airport and in Washington to thank the veterans. F or Mr. Menagh, the visit to the memorials was an opportunity to reflect on the time in his life when, as a 17-year-old, he volunteered for sea duty and served three years in the Pacific as a trainer and r adioman on the Destroyer U.S.S. Halford. Dur ing that time, he participated in costal bombardments for nine island invasions including on Guadalcanal, B ouganville, Saipan, Tinian, Guam, the Philippines with Leyte Gulf, Luzon and other islands of Japan. The Honor Flight trip brought to mind a nearfatal encounter in which the U.S. destroyer had a near-fatal encounter with several enemy battle ships, but was able to escape. Looking at the memorial with 4,000 gold stars, each star representing 100 soldiers killed in combat, he found that about 44,000 Americans died in World W ar II. P eople acknowledge that. The fact that so many people were coming and thanking us for our service just brought tears to our eyes.Conference helped women embrace changeMARTIN COUNTY More than 250 local women participated in the Women Empowering W omen Conference on Nov. 3 in Stuart, with the purpose of raising their awareness and implementing solutions for the challenges faced by women today.

MARTIN COUNTY P atients and their families experiencing a medical crisis staying at Mollys House, a hospital hospitality house in Stuart, will soon be seeing a lot of butterflies in thanks to David L. Smythe, a wellknown supporter of nonprofit organizations. Mr. Smythe sponsored the new butterfly garden for $10,000 as part of the serenity garden that is currently under construction in the backyard of Mollys House. Ser enity gardens are a form of relaxation for patients and their families and the new garden will provide a beautiful outdoor r espite during a stressful time. The garden is expected to be completed 2012. Sponsorship and in-kind opportunities are available. In addition to the butterfly garden, the new backyard will feature a rose and oriental garden along with native plants and flora. There will also be a water feature and a pergola donated by Courtyard by that is fully equipped with power, lighting, tables and chairs, and grill accessories. The pergola will accommodate a play area for small children and serve as a special event field. The sidewalks will be made of pavers with several arbors and seating areas strategically placed throughout. F or a truly peaceful, relaxing outdoor experience, the serenity garden will be secluded from busy Ocean Dr ive by a wall of hedges. Architect Lee Henderson, B utterfly Garden designer W endell Cave and surveyor S teven J. Brown, donated their services for this project to Mollys House.

The furniture was identical to that which was stolen from the hotel. Mar tin County deputies arrived and saw some additional items on the porch. They also saw more furniture inside through a window.

I never know what kind of problems I am going to be asked to solve and there is always the pressure to get it done quickly. Every call is a different challenge and most of the time it can take a half hour or more just looking around trying to get a handle on what's going on before the actual repairs even start. Vir us and malware cleanup calls usually always involve running one or more scans to "sweep" the computer for infected files and these scans can r eally run up the clock. There is nothing more frustrating than having to wait for a scan to complete and watching as the progress bar inches its way across the screen. The temptation to do other things while a scan is ru nning is high, but if you do that on an already sick machine, it can just make matters worse. It's best to tackle additional tasks after an infection is cleaned. Let's face it, computer maintenance is expensive. At the typical hourly rate, one unexpected glitch such as a virus infection or r egistry problem can quickly add up to hundreds. And who's to say that next month it won't be something different? And, to add insult to injury, most of the issues that I regularly clean up wouldn't be an issue if people would just take the time to keep their machines properly maintained. "Everyone" knows that they should have their system backed up and their anti-virus up to date, but hardly anyone takes the time to learn how to do it properly, let alone do it every month! M ost computer manufacturers assume that everyone already knows what they need to do to keep their new machine maintained properly, but that can be an unreasonable assumption to make, especially if the new computer owner has little or no experience. And with computers as inexpensive as they are today, more people who have never used one are coming home with powerful systems that can confound even the most seasoned computer user. W ithout proper maintenance it's only a matter of time before something goes wrong and the repair bill can approach the price of a new machine! There's got to be a better way. W ouldn't it be smarter to have an expert set up your machine and then maintain it every month and avoid costly repairs? Doesn't it make sense to have someone who knows what they're doing keep regular tabs on things and nip problems in the bud rather than letting them grow to the point where an expensive service call is inevitable? W ell, I think it is, and I've spent the last couple of months putting together a program that does just that: gives regular computer users a way to keep their machines maintained on a r egular basis at a cost that won't break the bank. What I've put together here, a computer service club, if you will, is a way to offset the high cost of sudden repairs by performing regular monthly "check ups" to make sure things are r unning smoothly. This way we can stop little issues before they become big ones. We want to start out with a clean system, so when a person joins our club, we connect to their system and do a full tune up and get it r unning in tip top shape. Ev en if it's infected with viruses or malware, we'll clean it first. We'll even set up the backup system and make sure it's configured properly. A way to keep your machine maintained COMP UTE THISSE AN MCCARTHY Counties should help Why is it that local counties refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness? How come it so hard for both counties to create work and affordable housing? There are people out of work or about to lose their jobs and be put out on the street and become homeless. By creating work and affordable housing the counties can all but eliminate homelessness. These same people want to work, even keep their jobs, and also want affordable housing not only for themselves, but for their families. Why is it they look the other way and not solve the problem? This is the reason why we have a bad reputation nationwide; they blame everyone else for their own ignorance. Dont forget about the little guyIn the day and age of Internet shopping, lets try to r emember to patronize our mom and pop businesses in order to keep them alive during this bad time. Small r estaurants also need our help. This area has almost no atmosphere and we do need to hang onto any of the neat, small restaurants weve got. Please eat an extra meal, if you can, at your favorite little hang-out.Concerned about school safetyMy daughter is currently a freshman at a local high school. In the last month, there have been a number of security issues at that school. A student was detained for assaulting a faculty member with a box cutter. On another occasion, there was a huge fight at a football game. I received a phone call from another parent, who urged me to pick my child up from school immediately, because a student had threatened to bring a gun to school. Last week, the school was on lock down because officials thought there was a criminal on school grounds. I know that school officials and the sheriffs department are doing all they can to keep my child safe, but I have to wonder if she is truly safe. I paid property taxes just like every home owner. I do not understand why there is not more security on the campuses. If we can afford metal detectors to protect our court houses, why can we not afford to protect our children? Remember Fannie Mae?Mor tgage giant Fannie Mae has just admitted that it lost an incredible $7.8 billion in the July-September quarter.Guess who is expected to cover their losses?They were egged on by the Dodd-Frank legislation, which is supported by the Obama administration. The really pathetic part is that they have obviously not learned their lessons.They have received $112 billion in taxpayer funds so far, the most expensive bailout in history, and they are continuing their absolutely insane policies.F rivolous law suit? An appeals court has ruled that a group of vegetarian H indus, who were inadvertently served meat at a M oghul Express, can sue the restaurant.Apparently, eating meat is forbidden by their religion. This decision is a prime example of lenient judges. Only in America do we permit such anout-of-control legal system.P otential or achievementW ashington and Tallahassee have poured billions into our public schools but powerful teachers unions continue to stonewall teacher evaluations based on students academic proficiency. The education establishment recommends teachers nurture rather than challenge children in the classroom. M any schools embrace the concept of social promotion where pupils move ahead from grade to grade even if they cant read or do basic math. Liberals prefer a system where each child is evaluated on his or her potential, not on his or her actual achievement.No wonder test scores continue to decline.W orms in the woodpile?We suspected there were worms in the wood pile, and now we know who put them there. S tates have, for years, been prohibited from keeping illegal immigrants from the public schools. As a result, taxpayers have been forced to pay the costs of educating them. In 1982, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled states may not deny student access based on whether or not they are here legally. We should have known that liberal judges we re guilty of this outrage. They are the so-called honorable members of our S upreme Court. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

The effervescent dentist has practiced on the Treasure Coast for more than a decade, and for most of that time, he's made it a priority to contribute to efforts to help the area's less-fortunate residents. F or about four years, he's worked at the community center, helping care for patients who otherwise would not have been able to afford dental work. W e've been blessed, and it's important to him to give back, said his wife, Sue Flanary, who also serves as office manager at Family D entistry, a full-service practice. J oining him at his private practice is Mark Berger, a dentist who studied at B oston University and did a one-year general practice dentistry residency in Br ooklyn, where he focused on all aspects of dental implants. Its a good dynamic we have in the office, and patients trust us, Dr. Berger said. We have a lot of patients who need dental implants. Its a great way to r eplace missing teeth, so this is an excellent service that many of our patients are very happy to have. P atients seem to sense the generous spirit that guides the doctors community service. W e get lots of people who come in and are deathly afraid in the beginning, but once they meet the staff they are very comfortable, Dr Berger said. Thats what we pride ourselves on. The idea of service permeates the dentists private practice. Family Dentistry offers services, such as crown placements, at about half the average market r ate. I've been fortunate in my life, so I need to help, especially at a time like this, when so many people are struggling, said Dr. Flanary, a graduate of Marquette U niversity, a Catholic, Jesuit university in Milwaukee. At F amily Dentistry, patients find the comfort of a private practice, outfitted with modern equipment and fully staffed with hygienists, assistants and clerical staff. The staff and dentists perform a wide r ange of services, including extractions and implants, and clinicians undertake continued education. F amily Dentistry also provides Invisalign braces, which help adults and teens straighten teeth without metal. B ut instead of prohibitive prices, administrators pride themselves on offering fees that put smiles on clients' faces. W e offer quality care at affordable prices and take most insurance, Dr. Flanary said. We like to say w e're a private practice with public clinic fees. And at this time of the y ear, Mrs. Flanary suggested patients who have not used all their dental insurance services for the year could ensure they dont lose out on their annual benefits by booking an appointment. F amily Dentistry is located at 2385 S.E.Federal Highway,in Stuart's TJ Maxx plaza.Its open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.Monday to Thursday and by appointments on F ridays. F or more information,call (772) 286-3088 or visit www.familydentistryofstuart.com for details on services.

Then once a month we r econnect and give the system a once over. We encourage people to use this time to ask any questions that they have and we'll address any issues that may have come up over the previous month. We'll verify the system, the anti-virus, the backup and the security settings. And we make sure they are all set for the next month. After a trial run, all of my "club members" seem pretty satisfied and we have been able to nip a few problems in the bud; just the way I planned. If this sounds like something you would like to take part in, drop me a line or give me a call. I'll be happy to answer all of your questions.

And while you certainly enjoy hosting family gatherings and giving presents to your loved ones, yo u ll find these things even more pleasurable if they dont add a lot more weight to your debt load. And thats why youll want to follow some smart money-management techniques over the next few weeks. To begin with, try to establish realistic budgets for both your entertaining and your gift giving. When you host family and friends, dont go overboard on your expenditures. Your guests will still appreciate y our efforts, which, with a little creativity, can create a w elcoming and fun experience for everyone. As a guiding principal, keep in mind these words attributed to Johann W olfgang von Goethe, the famous German poet and philosopher: What you can do without, do without. Set a budget and stick to it. And the same rule applies to your gifting. You dont need to find the most expensive presents, or ov erwhelm recipients with the sheer volume of your gifts. This is especially true if y ou, like so many people, have been affected by the tough economy. Everyone y ou know will understand that gifts dont have to be lavish to be meaningful. Fur thermore, by sticking to a budget, you wont be tempted to dip into your long-term investments to pay for fabulous parties or mountains of gifts. Its never a good idea to tap long-term investments for short-term needs, but it can be especially bad when your investment prices are down, as they may well be this y ear. So if you want to stick to a budget but you dont want to raid your investments, how can you pay for your holiday season expenses? If you can spread out your purchases, you may be able to pay for them from your normal cash flow. But if thats not possible, you might want to consider using plastic, your credit card. Using your credit card does not, by itself, need to amount to a financial setback, especially if youve chosen a card that offers favorable terms and youve already shown the discipline not to over-use that card. Just try to minimize y our credit card usage over the holidays and pay off y our card as soon as you can. Of course, you can make y our holiday season much easier, financially speaking, if youve set up a holiday fund to cover your various expenses. While its too late to set up such a fund this y ear, why not get an early start on the 2012 holiday season? All you need to do is put away some money each month into an easily accessible account, separate from your everyday accounts. You dont have to put in a great deal, but you do need to be consistent, which is why you may want to have the money moved automatically, once a month, from your checking or savings account to your holiday fund. When next years holiday season rolls around, you might be pleasantly surprised by how much youve accumulated. B ut for now, following some common-sense, money-management practices can help you get through the holiday season in financial shape and that type of result can get your N ew Year off to a positive start.

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.Almost everyone has r ead Abraham Lincolns popular saying, You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cant fool all of the people all of the time. I think Abe meant this to be a positive assertion that government may get away with deceiving us for a while, but in the long run, truth justice and the American way will prevail and I think he was right. How ever, it doesnt work that way with unethical car dealers and car buyers. It always has been caveat emptor or buyer beware when it comes to buying or servicing a car. U nfortunately for a buyer to beware he must be aware, that is to say educated, mature, sophisticated and experienced. This excludes a very large segment of our population including the very young, the very old, the uneducated, those with low IQs and those not proficient in the English language. Is this one r eason our regulators and elected politicians dont seem to care or take action with respect to the rampant unfair and deceptive sales practices of a large number of Florida car dealers? M ost elected officials and r egulators are lawyers and are highly educated and sophisticated. They dont have a problem buying or servicing a car. In fact, the car dealer who tries to take advantage of a lawyer, r egulator, or politician is asking for trouble. I sometimes feel that Im preaching to the choir when it comes to advising people how to avoid getting ripped off by a car dealer. You, my r eaders and listeners, largely fall into the category of the educated and sophisticated, aware buyer. Most of you arent taken advantage of when you buy or service your car because y ou wont allow it. U nfortunately, there are enough uneducated, naive and otherwise vulnerable consumers to feed those unethical car dealers who prey on the defenseless among us. All you have to do is read some of the car ads in the S aturday (the biggest selling day for most car dealers) auto classifieds. To the educated, sophisticated buyer, these ads are actually funny if you can forget the fact that so many fall prey to them and are taken advantage of by the dealers. F or example, its hard for y ou or me to believe that anybody would respond to an advertisement without r eading the fine print. Many dealers today are advertising prices that, when you r ead the fine print, are understated by many thousands of dollars. When you or I see a dealer stating that the car price is plus freight we are educated enough to understand that the law requires the freight cost be already included in the price. A shrewd buyer knows that dealer list is not the same thing as MSRP and that a large discount from dealer list means absolutely nothing. We know that the lowest price guarantee is worthless if the dealer reserves the right to buy the car from the other dealer that offers a lower price. There are those who argue that all buyers have the responsibility to guard against unethical sellers, to take care of themselves. In fact, thats the literal translation of the Latin legal term caveat emptor let the buyer beware. Thats sounds good, but what about the elderly widow whose husband recently died and who never had to make a the decision on a major purchase in her entire life? What about the young person just out of school with no experience in the r eal world? How about the immigrant who struggles with English? S hould we be concerned about our underprivileged classes who often drop out of school because they have to go to work to support themselves or their family? Y ou and I know lots of good people who, for one r eason or another, simply cant cope with a slick car or service salesman. My bottom line is this: since we cant rely on our r egulators and politicians to protect those who can be fooled all the time, maybe we ow e it to society to protect these folks. If you know someone who is thinking about buying a car or has a service problem with her car and y ou feel she may not have the ability to fend for herself with the car dealer, offer your support. If yo u re one of the people who needs support, ask someone who can go toeto-toe with a car dealer to come with you when you are car shopping. By the way, nobody, sophisticated or not, should car shop alone. Two heads are always better than one and its always a good idea to have a witness to what was said during a negotiation. And, of course, if you dont have the time to help a person or youre that person, you can always call me. Im always here for you. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 25, 2011 Martin County A9 GRANADA PLAZA 2311 NW FEDERAL HWY STUART692-22451 MILE SOUTH JENSEN BCH BLVD EAST SIDE OF US 1 TRADING AND SELLING QUALITY P APERBACKBRING THIS AD IN FOR $5 STORE CREDIT.CREDIT TO BE USED TOWARDS 1/2 STORE P URCHASE BOOKEXCHANGENOWOPENN NO OW WO OP PE EN N 26th Annual Hobe Sound Chamber ofCommerceChristmas ParadePr oudly sponsored by Tr easure Coast Irrigation/Rood Landscape,LLC Br idge Boat & RV Storage and Martin County Re development AgencyGr and Marshall,SheriffRobert Crowder Saturday,December 3rd,1:00pm Dixie Highway and Bridge Road Cr aft Stroll at Mars and Dixie 10:00am 3:00pm Co me help kick offthe holiday season and enjoy a great family day in Ho be Sound!!

TREASURE COAST H ibiscus Childrens Center has launched its 2011-12 annual support campaign. F or more than 25 years, H ibiscus Childrens Center, along with support from the community, has been fulfilling the vision of its Founder, LaVaughn Tilton. H er dream was to create a safe haven for abused and neglected children in our community. Today, its partners have helped the center protect vulnerable children and provide prevention, intervention and recovery services for abused and neglected children and families in crisis across the Treasure C oast. Ev ery month, more than 1,100 children and families are provided critical services to help repair broken lives and strengthen families through the Tilton Family Childrens Shelter in Jensen B each, the Hibiscus Childrens Village in Vero Beach, the Hibiscus foster care program and the Hibiscus mental health and community outreach programs with offices in Fort Pierce and O keechobee. This year, Martin County campaign co-chairs, Tony Losh of Comerica Bank and Ju die Price; Indian River campaign chairman, Clay Pr ice of Harris, Cotherman, J ones, Price & Associates; and St. Lucie County campaign chairman, Michael W aninger, will spearhead the campaign throughout the region. U nder their leadership, the goal of the 2011-12 H ibiscus Childrens Center campaign is to raise $900,000 to directly support H ibiscus mission. Each day I have the unique vantage point of seeing a dynamic organization of volunteers and staff working together to positively impact the lives of children with serious needs, said T om Maher, CEO. F or over 25 years, Hibiscus has sheltered children, strengthened families, nurtured futures.

A pparently, my Uncle K enneth found my new career shocking, pitiful and humorous, all at the same time. I was home in Pennsylvania for the first time since I began my first year of teaching. I was there for a funeral where I saw my U ncle Kenneth for the first time in years. When he asked what I was doing now that I had graduated, I explained that I was teaching high school and middle school English at The Pine School, an independent school in F lorida. His reaction stunned me. I am well aware of the under-appreciation of the teaching profession, but Ive also been lucky enough to grow up in a time and place in which people dont usually profess this kind of overt disrespect. Y ou mean I should have been something like a business person? I was confused and desperate to respond. I m very happy with what Ive done, and Im very happy with what Im doing. I looked at my grandmother, whose face was as r ed as mine, and we both knew it time for us to leave. Ive done some thinking about what exactly my uncle might have meant. M aybe he was thinking of something like that most horrible adage (dare I even write it): Those who cant do, teach. M aybe he was thinking that with my education I could be doing something, rather than teaching it. I look around me at the passionate, professional colleagues with whom I work, and I can tell you that I have never in my life seen people who do more. In fact, they do it so well that they are able to teach it and inspire others to do it, too. Though conscious of the privilege that I know it affords me, I am very proud of my education and what Ive done. I am most proud, privileged and honored, however, to be a teacher. M ost likely my uncle also mistakenly believed that I, like he, would see my education as a means to make as much money as possible, in which case teaching would obviously be a less than-logical choice. Im teaching because my teachers were extraordinary. As a great friend and an English teacher once said, We are in the business of making meaning. My o wn teachers taught me how to see the world in a meaningful way and to articulate my own perspective within it. They showed me that education is not just a means to a more lucrative end, but rather, a way of learning to understand, interpret and find significance in whats around me. As I reacted to my uncles comment, I was infuriated at first not for myself, but r ather for my own teachers, the extraordinary, tireless people who have made me who I am and taught me how I want to live. I know the lack of appreciation for teachers is nothing new. I am certainly in no position to speak about or represent the plight of veteran teachers who have experienced these attitudes for generations. B ut Im able to feel immensely proud to count myself as part of this educational community. Now, as I write this, I re alize that Im doing exactly what a great teacher once asked of me and in turn, what I ask my English students to do every day: take a small event and make it meaningful. I ask them to try to understand that moment, either in literature or in the world around them, and to articulate something important about it. I take this strange, unfortunate question from my uncle in Pennsylvania, and I use it to remember how utterly proud I am of what I do and the people with whom I work. Im happy to be at school,and Im happy to be home. A dison Lax teaches E nglish at The Pine School. KNOWLEDGEISATERRIBLETHING TOW ASTE... www.hometownnewsol.comSubscribe Today!

Po rt St. Lucie Blvd., Port St. Lucie, Davee Bryan, 7:45-11 p.m.OutF rom page B7 Plenty of fish out thereSurf anglers had a few days that were fishable and a few day that were not, but plenty of fish. The blues have arrived along with the macs and have made for some good fishing. Anglers casting spoons had plenty of takers. Anglers casting cut bait had plenty of takers also you just had to find their zone. C asting a spoon you cover the area, cut bait you have to pay attention.Cast out y our bait and give it some time then move it in, once y ou get the strike you have to cast back to that area that is the zone. P lenty of jacks and yes, there were some pompano, but for them you needed to spend a lot of time finding their zone.Pompano have been there early and late but not for very long, they have been on the move. Anglers pay attention to the way they are moving and y ou move the same direction, north or south just get ahead of them. Fa vored bait has been sand fleas, anything else the blues and macs will eat, so stick with the fleas. Now if we just can get a few days in with out the big surf of weed mats we can have a fish fry. W ind has kept most anglers on the east side of the river. Great trout bite they know the season is closed but the red fish bite has been as strong. From N ettles Island north to R ound island lots of red fish. The spoils north of North Br idge provide shelter from the wind and some excellent conditions for the reds. Fr om Bear Point south to N ettles, lots of reds, best part is they are chewing, live baits soft rubber and spoons all are getting attention. Problem, blues, macs, jacks and lady fish are all there and just as hungry, so bring some extra baits y ou will use them. P ompano are in the Sail F ish Flat and at the bridges, not a lot, but still enough to keep your attention. No special time you just have to be there.Snook anglers do not mind the wind and busy water, Flair Hawks all week in the low light, plenty of fish, just a few in the slot. B lack fins at the Hill and a few dolphin, sails in 80 feet on out to 130 feet, with a mix of a few dolphins and to the south more dolphins, small but there. It has been a scattered w eek with big seas, so not too many anglers were comfortable going out. This FISHINGHENRY CAIMATTO See FISHING, B9 See OUT, B9

G iving sailing lessons is a really fun, unique and great gift. The local U.S. Sailing Center is one of only four nationwide. Its staff and volunteers recommend giving a membership gift to someone who already knows how to sail. A dult memberships cost $395 annually for unlimited use of sail boats and no guest fees. Junior memberships are also available for children 18 and younger. F or beginners, they suggest a package of sailing lessons. A 12-hour course costs about $200. F or a one-time gift, consider a sail boat ride, a two-hour trip that costs about $60. Often, sailboat lessons and rides lead to membership, because once y ou learn to sail you want to keep doing it, Mr. Jenkinson said. And these arent just good gifts for Christmas or the holidays. People give them year round, because sailboat rides are always something unique, different from opening a present. Theyre ideal for individuals, families and couples. The U.S.Sailing Center of Martin County is located at 1955 N.E.Indian River Drive,Jensen Beach.For more information,call (772) 334-8085.SailF rom page 3 Christmas jamboree taking place Dec. 17 MARTIN COUNTY The Port Salerno Christmas Jamboree will take place De c. 17 from noon6 p.m. on the corner of A1A and Dixie Highway in Stuart.

6Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 It doesnt take a genius to figure out that one of the most popular gift-giving categories is electronics. J ust wander into Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving and check out the unruly mob of shoppers and the long lines at the checkout lanes. Lots of people like to give or receive gadgets for the holidays. B ut which one to choose? Its always a daunting question, even for the experienced gadget freak. He re are some guidelines that might help, from someone who has bought more than his share of cutting-edge electronics over the past 30 years. T ablets: No question about it. T ablets are the hottest thing out there these days and there are an increasing number to choose from. The two top sellers this year are likely to be two new 7-inch models the Amazon Kindle Fire and the N ook Tablet from Barnes & Noble. B oth are Android-powered devices but the Nook boasts more storage 16GB versus 8GB on the Fire and is more expandable with a micro SD slot. The biggest appeal of these two new tablets will likely to be their low prices, $199 for the Fire and $249 for the Nook. No matter which one you choose, thats a real bargain compared to the industry-leading Apple iPad, which starts at about $500. The iPad has a bigger screen, is more powerful and probably is still the only choice for A pple fanatics. But if you just want to find out what the big deal is about tablets, and dont want to spend an arm and a leg, the Kindle Fire and N ook Tablet probably will be good choices. Both tablets will be capable of streaming HD video (albeit from different specific collections) and tapping into each stores respective music and print libraries, as well as r unning a special collection of apps. B oth are wi-fi only. No 3G option.

TREASURE COAST You know that saying, Think outside the box? This holiday season, its a good idea to do the opposite. The Band Box, a Stuart shop that specializes in wind instruments, offers alternatives to gifts carted out from department stores. I ts brass and wood-wind selections r ange from instruments suitable for beginners to those crafted for elite musicians. As far as the instruments go, we cover a broad range, said owner Carlyle Weber, a retired member of the U.S. Army Field Band of Washington, D .C., who spent 23 years touring with the military and now plays trombone and euphonium, a baritone horn, with several large local jazz bands.9Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 F riday, November 25, 2011 Approach thrift store shopping like holiday treasure hunt MARTIN COUNTY Diane T omasik has come across her share of bargain hunters. As communications director for House of Hope, the nonprofit that operates food pantries, thrift stores and delivers other services in the county, she knows more residents are trying to increase their purchasing power in a tough economy. The trick to thrift store shopping, she said, is figuring out each stores specialty and taking advantage of each best deal. E very thrift store is a treasure trove, she said. At House of Hope, for example, we have four stores, and every one has a different character. The Stuart and Hobe Sound stores usually get donations of beautiful crystals and knick knacks, the kinds of gifts children like to purchase for their mothers. O ther stores have boutique sections stocked with designer clothes, jewelry and accessories that sell for about one-tenth their retail price. When I go, I never have any expectations. I just browse and see what, if anything, I find, said Cindy R ander, a shopper at House of Hopes S tuart store, located at Stuart, located at 2484 S.E. Bonita St. O pen-minded browsing is a great strategy for bargain hunters, said Ms. T omasik.

If youve never had an artichoke, theres no time like Christmas to try one. Its not something served at many tables and they can be expensive, but it is a gourmet treat you must try. Artichokes are nutrient dense and high in fiber. If yo u re having a small intimate dinner, nothing can compare to stuffed artichokes. The ways I remember eating artichokes are stuffed, marinated or with oil and garlic. Every r ecipe Ive ever read has you dipping the leaves in either butter or hollandaise sauce.

13Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 F riday, November 25, 2011 Plant safety tips so you can enjoy beauty Hi, everybody. With the holidays getting into full swing, many of us are going to purchase one or more colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia. These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If y ou have pets that have a habit of chewing your plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the real thing and you can reuse them year after year. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe. U sing mistletoe as a decor ation is a tradition that has been carr ied out for centuries. During Pagan times, troops at war who met with the presence of mistletoe were required to lay down their weapons and unite in a day of truce. Mistletoe was also used during rituals that celebrated the winter solstice. It was used as a symbol of the eventual return of the sun. In Christianity, mistletoe has been used as symbol of love ever since the M iddle Ages. During this era, mistletoe was blessed by a priest and all those who walked under it kissed as a sign of friendship and all bad feelings were extinguished. In modern times, the tradition of being kissed under the mistletoe is still in full force. A trip to your local holiday shop will usually yield both live and artificial versions of this popular holiday plant. The live mistletoe plant is toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of small children and pets. As long as it is not ingested, this plant can still create a warm feeling of friendship to all who walk under it. Li ve Christmas trees. Although live trees are the main symbol of this great day, they can pose hazards if not handled and cared for properly. The main hazard from live trees is fire. When you first bring your tree home, be sure to cut a slice off the bottom before placing it in its new location. This will help the tree to absorb water faster, which will greatly lengthen its useful life. There are many products on the market that are labeled as tree savers that are useful in helping the tree to absorb water faster and over a longer period of time. It is important when choosing the location for your new tree to place it away from any heat sources or sparks. In the past, using faulty Christmas lights that either shorted out or sparked has caused most treer elated fires. In addition, lights that produce too much heat can be a problem on a tree that has been in use for an extended period of time. T oday, one of the best ways to stay safe is to use the new LED lights that are available for decorating. They look great and besides running cooler than other lights, they also save you green. They use a fraction of the power of conventional lighting methods. Us e only UL-approved extension cords and power strips. Using LED lights will not create as much as a load on your extension cords and power adapters. W ith the availability of a large selection of artificial trees, for many people this will be a great alternative to the live tree. Most are now in three pieces with all the lights already attached and they last year after year saving you lots of money over time. As you can see, with some common sense practices, you can stay safe this holiday season.

E xpect most of those to be quite a bit cheaper than a comparable iPad (although probably not as cheap as the Fir e) after Thanksgiving, if not earlier. All run on the Android operating system, which will look and feel different from the custom-built versions of the same OS used on the K indle Fire and Nook Tablet. Any of those larger tablets would be a good choice if you want a bigger screen than the Fire and Nook have, but dont want to spend the big bucks for an iPad. E xpect to pay between $300 and $450, depending on the size and features. M any tablets offer the same 3G option as the iPad, but the best advice is to skip that unless you are sure you need it. A tablet that can access the cellular network is not only more expensive on the front end, it costs the user $30 a month or more for a data plan. Wi-fi only tablets dont require a data plan. Also, you probably should avoid the no-name tablets. They may cost a lot less but theres a reason for that. Noname tablets are likely to suffer from poor reliability and build quality, dated or closed operating systems, and/or a lack of applications that will run on them. If price is no object, the iPad is still the best of the bunch. E-book readers : This was a hot category last year and is likely to be even hotter this year, again thanks to Amazon. It has cut the price on its base K indle e-reader to $79, about $50 less than last year. That model would be the best choice if you want the best deal and are a big reader. The black and white e-ink screen on the Kindle is easier on the eyes over the long haul than color models and is readable even in bright sunlight. If you want to spend a little more and like the idea of a touch screen, there are two good choices: for $99, you can get a touch-screen version of the K indle or the competing Barnes & N oble Nook Simple Touch. Barnes & N oble recently slashed the price of its N ook by $40 so it can compete headto-head with the Kindle. These two r eaders are very similar so the decision comes down to personal taste. Study each model, including the libraries they can access, and choose the one y ou like the best. Most color tablets can also be used as e-readers, but dont work as well as the dedicated blackand-white readers, whose e-ink display most closely mimic the printed page. S till, Barnes & Noble does make a color version of its Nook e-reader and r ecently cut the price from $250 to $199. S martphones: These gadgets are always a popular choice for gift giving, since almost everyone can use one and new models seem to hit store shelves on almost a daily basis. Apples new iPhone 4S is a good choice for Apple fans and newcomers to the smartphone world, since the OS is arguably better than the many Android competitors and the apps are often more capable. And with prices starting around $199 (with two-year contract), it wont break the bank. Opt for the older, but almost as capable iPhone 4 if money is tight, it starts at $99, half the price of the 4S Or the even older iPhone 3GS, which in some cases, is free with a two-year contract. The iPhone 4 looks almost identical to the 4S but lacks the 4S internal improvements, including a faster processor and better camera. On the Android front, the choices are more numerous and complicated. Among the newest offerings is the S amsung Galaxy Nexus, due in midNovember and the first to run on the new Android 4 operating system code named Ice Cream Sandwich. This dualcore phone is 4G LTE capable, the fastest data service available, and has a larger screen than the iPhone. Prices have not been set but expect to pay between $200 and $300 (with contract) to have this latest and greatest smartphone. Other options include the lesspopular, Windows-based and Blackberry phones. Steer clear of those unless you need any special features they may offer. Apple and Android are now the dominant players in the cell phone marketplace. F or those who dont need the latest technology but still want the convenience of a cell phone, consider a payas-you go service such as Tracfone. If y ou dont need a lot of minutes or the most modern smart phone, you can get a years worth of cell phone service for less than $9 a month (you also have to buy the phone, which generally costs from $20 to $50). HDTV: Pr ices continue to fall on HDTVs, while the feature set improves. The sweet spot can found in the 46inch to 50-inch models, which are now going for as little as $500 and are likely to go even lower as the holidays approach.

17Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 F riday, November 25, 2011 is now routinely below $300. That could make HDTVs a good choice for gift giving this year. The big push this holiday season, however, will be the more expensive models with wired or wireless Internet connectivity, which is usually tied to a feature often called Smart TV. These T Vs have built-in apps, similar to the ones found on smartphones. There are lots of different apps, but most consumers probably will focus on those that allow for the direct streaming of movies or TV shows, including Hulu, V udu, Netflix, CinemaNow, Blockbuster and others. Y ou can also buy stand alone boxes from a variety of companies that do much the same thing or Blu-ray players that include the Smart TV feature. In concept, this is a good idea. But the implementation is lacking in my experience. Smart TV features can be slow and clunky, and just dont bring much usefulness to the party unless y ou dont have cable. They are certainly not worth paying a huge premium for. D itto for the other HDTV gimmick that was the hot ticket last year, 3D. It works, but content is limited and you need to buy a special 3D Blu-ray player to watch 3D Blu-ray movies and the glasses you have to wear are a pain. If y ou can get 3D or smart TV for little or no extra money, go for it. But generally speaking youre better off sticking with a good basic HDTV. Look for a namebrand LCD or plasma model in the size that best fits your budget with 1080p r esolution (thats less important on screens less than 40 inches). Picture quality and reliability have improved to the point now where almost all available models are very good. However, if y ou want a TV with the widest viewing angles, go for a plasma set. If price is no object, go for the absolutely huge 80-inch LCD HDTVs that are available this year. Cost: about $5,000. GPS: Like nearly every other electronic device, the cost of stand alone GPS units has been falling fast in r ecent years. They start at less-than $100 and you can get a top-of-the-line model, with voice recognition for around $300. While the el-cheapo models work, most consumers will be happier with a more advanced model with features like text-to-speech (the names of the roads are spoken), laneassist (tells you more about the next turn, including the number of turn lanes, which side of the road the exit is on) and Bluetooth (pairs with your B luetooth phone for hands-free phone calls). Stick with a name brand, such as Gar min, Tom-Tom or Magellan and go for at least a 4.3-inch screen. The larger 5-inch screens dont cost a lot more so if you like idea of a bigger screen, go for it. Speech recognition, which allows you to control the device with voice commands, also is a convenient feature but sometimes it is not well implemented. Check online r eviews before you buy. Lifetime maps and traffic service are also are desirable features if you plan to keep the GPS unit for more than a year. O dds and ends: If you or someone y ou know suffers from remote control clutter, solve it with a unified remote that allows you control everything with one device. I have tried lots of them but the best I have found is the Harmony One from Logitech. It handles up to 15 devices and all programming is done via the Harmony One Web site, so there are no frustrating multinumber codes to enter. And when you are done, its easy to start your TV, stereo receiver, cable box, DVD or Blura y player and gaming devices with one touch. The customizable LCD touch screen on the Harmony One is activity based. So to watch TV, you simply choose watch TV and all the correct devices come on with all the r ight settings. Ditto for play video games or play DVD. The Harmony One is not cheap between $150 and $200, and the setup can be challenging. But it can save you a lot of headaches and allow you to shove all those other remote controls into a drawer somewhere. (Harmony also makes less expensive versions starting at around $30 that can be programmed online.) Another good inexpensive gift from someone who has an iPod or other music device that supports Bluetooth is a good pair of wireless Bluetooth stereo headphones. Everyone who has ever used earbuds knows the cord that connects the earpieces to the player can be a pain. Bluetooth headphones, which cost between $30 and $100, allow you to get rid of the cord, without loss of sound quality. Shop online for the best selection and price, since these gadgets are scarce and expensive in most area retail stores.

19Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 F riday, November 25, 2011 to do is, I would have to say teaching a little child how to eat an artichoke. Tr ivial? No. Sheer joy! If yo u ve never eaten one, come along with me and well learn how. The base, or heart, of the artichoke is the part you want to eat. Ev ery time you pull a leaf off the base, it has a little piece of the delicious heart clinging to it. You do not eat the whole leaf; you put it between your teeth and then pull the leaf out, catching the pillow of flesh with your teeth. When my granddaughter, Meagan, was 2, she watched her daddy, S teve, eat an artichoke and reached out for it. When I asked her if she wanted to try one, she shook her head yes. How do you explain to a 2 y ear old that bite down does not mean hang on for dear life? She clamped her teeth down on that leaf as I struggled to pull it out of her mouth. Once she got a taste of the delicious flesh, though, she quickly learned the proper technique. Once all of the leaves have been pulled off and enjoyed, you are left with the choke and the heart. You never want to learn what the choke in artichoke really means. The inedible florets in the center of the vegetable will most definitely make you choke and must be r emoved. Getting to the artichoke heart is like getting to the prize at the bottom of a cereal box. It is superb and can be eaten out of hand or used in many dishes. You can also peel the stem, slice and cook it with the artichokes. Enjoy, see you next week! STU STU F F F F E E D AR D AR TI TI C C H H O O KE KE S S Ser Ser ves 4 ves 4 4 large artichokes 3 cups soft bread crumbs, (four slices of bread) 1 tbsp. parsley flakes or few sprigs chopped Italian parsley 1/2 tsp. each, dried oregano and salt 1/4 tsp. black pepper 1/4 lb. fresh mushrooms, chopped (optional) 4 cloves garlic, chopped 1/3 cup grated, imported Parmesan cheese 1/2 cup lightly toasted pine nuts, coarsely chopped Extra virgin olive oil Dr y white wine, such as chablis or Chardonnay Pr epare artichokes by cutting the stem end even with the bottom.

P lace upright in a large pot with 1inch water and a little lemon juice. Co ver, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. While the artichokes wont be fully cooked they will be easier to stuff. When cool enough to handle using a small knife or grapefruit knife spread leaves and cut down into center to r emove the inedible choke (fuzzy stuff). Pr ocess or blend bread slices and mix with next seven ingredients. Pr ess stuffing between as many leaves as possible. Place artichoke upright back in the pot. Add about 1 cup water, 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup wine. Cook covered about 30 minutes until an outer and inner leaf pulls out easily. The liquid should evaporate leaving only the oil.

21Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSHOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 F riday, November 25, 2011 Gifts golfers will enjoy Happy holidays! Just in case y ou are stumped on what to get that special golfer on your holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Bruce Siz emore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke (www.superstrokeusa.com ), the company with the ov ersize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the S uper Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. You can even custom build your own right on the website for an even more perfect fit. If you know someone whos not swinging the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edges ( www.touredge.com ) new Bazooka HT M ax-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots. The deep face, huge sweet spot and advanced w eighting technology combine to deliver explosive power and accuracy. B est of all, the driver retails for under $150 and the fairways under $120 and come with Tour Edges lifetime warranty and a 30-day, performance guarantee. If your golfer loves to travel, the D atrek Golfs (www.datrekgolf.com ) three-piece travel set may be the perfect gift. The set includes a golf bag travel cover with wheels, a duffle bag and a shoe bag for under $100. The travel cover features lots of padding and extra pockets and also has in-line skate wheels for a smooth, easy r oll. The duffle bag is just the right size for a carry-on. Ev ery golfer could use some practice. I mproving your putting is the quickest way to lower your score. Fan Mats and T our Links ( www.TourLinks.net ) has combined the logo from your favorite professional team, or college or military branch into its new line of putting greens. These greens feature club-speed turf with adjustable breaks and two regulation cups and pins. The 4-foot by 10foot green is ready for use in any indoor or outdoor space. Molded from high impact polymers, the patented design makes installation a snap. K angarila (www.kangarila.com) is a new way of playing golf that will add an extra level of fun or frustration to your game. In this game the balls act as dice. The balls are printed with the names of different clubs such as wedge or iron. You tee off and hit your Kangarila golf ball. When you arrive at the ball, the side facing up will tell you which club you must use for your next shot. It s a great way to add some fun and improve your shot-making skills. You can even just choose one or two holes each round where you play the Kangarila balls. While we dont experience snow and seldom see freezing temperatures for any extended period of time, we F loridians still need jackets and sweaters. A bacus Apparel (www.abacus-outdoor.com) is the company that outfitted the European Solheim Cup team. I ts new pebble fleece jacket is perfect for those cool days that we see in the winter here. The soft, warm polyester fleece features a full-length front zipper and flat-lock seams that allow you to stay warm and unrestricted while swinging. The newest apparel from Sunice ( www.sunice.com), outfitter to the U.S. S olheim Cup team, is its Typhoon Collection. The company has added the benefit of full-stretch to this line. Now in addition to a breathable, lightw eight, quieter performance fabric, y ou get the benefit of a garment that stretches with you while keeping the wind and rain away. B ooks are another great gift idea. S tuart resident Judy Alvarez is a world re nowned golf instructor and Golf GOLFJAMES STAMMER See G OLF, 22

26Martin CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, Oh, thats great, Ill have to get in there, and then drive by months later and realize that I have yet to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen various advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when its locally owned; its not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It s personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the r ealization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. W ithout our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by t hose who live among us. Su re, I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. Its nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local restaurants only. Theres something to be said about walking into a place where everyone knows your name. N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are owned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. B ecause its not just business, its personal. S teve Erlanger is publisher and chief operations officer for H ometown News. Make your holiday shopping more personal PUBLISHER, CHIEF OPERATING OFFICERSTEVE ERLANGER Dos, donts of holiday travel The holidays are a festive time of year, but they can also prove stressful for the millions of people who travel to visit friends and family or use time off during the holidays to go on vacation. Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nations roadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. While theres not much travelers can do to reduce the number of fellow travelers come the holiday season, there are certain dos and donts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a recipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel its more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While its possible to find last minute airline deals, its very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. Thats potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement w eather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DONT blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but its exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient interrupted travel plans can be, its never the fault of the person working at the airport. Its often a result of inclement weather, which is something no one can control. Should travel plans be delayed or cancelled, r emain courteous, compassionate and r espectful of staff. Doing so is the right thing to do, and it might just garner you some consideration when the time comes to reschedule plans. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. H eavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in r elatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from regions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. I nsurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. The peace of mind insurance provides can also reduce the stress of holiday travel. DONT try to make up for lost time. While theres little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often overcrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are rarely ideal. Even if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, dont risk disaster with aggressive driving. Instead, call your destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the roadway. No matter where y ou are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family members house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound, even if that means getting there a little later than originally planned. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you wont have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the road before most drivers are even out of bed. It might not be fun to get up so early, but y ou will likely start your trip off with little to no traffic. DONT overdo it. It s tempting to try to see everyone during the holiday season, but most travelers would prefer to stay in one place for more time than to continue traveling from place to place without spending much time at any one place. Tr aveling too much can lead to exhaustion, which is especially dangerous for those traveling by automobile. If possible, spread out holiday travel as much as you can, and attempt to spend at least two nights sleeping in the same bed before hitting the road again. H oliday travel doesnt have to be so difficult. Adhering to a few dos and donts can make this years holiday travel far less stressful. Metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News
