S alvation Army founder Catherine B ooth, Queen Victoria of England and celebrated author and speaker Corrie T en Boom are the subjects of Molly Be r winkle's third book, "Greatness in Lace." They left lasting greatness on our world," said Ms. Berwinkle. "I wanted to know whether there was anything similar in their lives that gave them this lasting greatness." So the Ohio-based author set out to compare the lives of the three women, r esearching their histories for her book, which includes charts, tables, comparisons and other data. H er goal was to examine whether some women seem destined to follow a path to historical significance, or if they help designed their future or degree of enduring personal significance. "M s. Be r winkle examines these questions and more as she focuses on three eminent women and attempts to find a common thread visible throughout their lives of greatness," said marketer Traci Jones, a spokeswoman for T ate Publishing, which is organizing the book signing.

who risked great personal danger under the Nazi r egime. Her autobiography The Hiding Place," tells how her family aided Jewish r efugees during the Holocaust. Another subject in Ms. Be r winkle's work, Ms. Booth, was a social activist since her y outh. She started groups to fight for rights for workers toiling under deadly conditions in the 19th century. Q ueen Victoria is credited with preserving the British monarchy by transforming its r ole from a sovereign political power to a ceremonial one. The book examines how the ro yal woman handled the pressure of power. "G r eatness in Lace," examines whether despite their differences, these three women had more in common than a casual observer might first expect. Ms. Berwinkle will discuss the book during The Grace P lace's holiday dinner, set for 7 p.m. on Dec. 5. H er daughter, Crystal Sp r ings, is director of worship programing at The Grace P lace, located at 1550 S.E. S alerno Road, Stuart. P ALM BEACH COUNTY D an Rather will be the keynote speaker at the 2012 Alzheimer's Educational Conference which will take place on May 31 and June 1 at the P alm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm B each. In addition to sharing his experiences as a worldr enowned journalist, Mr. R ather will speak on a topic that will resonate deeply with attendees: overcoming life's challenges, words of inspiration and motivation. Mr. Rather's perspective on national health care issues affecting Alzheimer's families will also be of great significance to attendees. F or more than 40 years, the former CBS news anchor and "60 Minutes" correspondent, Mr. Rather has been the embodiment of the intrepid broadcast journalist. Fr om the Kennedy assassination where he was the first to break the news that the president had been killed to the Indian Ocean tsunami, he has covered every major story of his day, with distinction and a fierce dedication to hard news. On the domestic front, Mr. R ather has covered every presidential campaign since 1952. He was White House correspondent for CBS News during the administrations of Pr esidents Johnson and Ni x on, and was a leading force in broadcast news investigation of the Watergate scandal. Mr. Rather has brought his experience to bear on the biggest stories of recent years. On Sept. 11, 2001, Dan R ather stayed on the air for 18 hours straight to bring Americans news of the deadly attacks on the World Trade C enter and Pentagon. In the days and weeks that followed, he became the first journalist to report from underneath "The Pile" at ground zero and his appearance on David Letterman's first show post-9/11 broadcast has been credited as a touchstone for American sentiment during those difficult days. In addition to Mr. Rather, the conference will feature plenary speakers Larry Polivka, Viki Kind and Teepa Snow, all leaders in the field of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders who will provide the highest caliber information to attendees throughout this two-day conference. The 2012 Alzheimer's Educational Conference, the second largest in the nation, is presented by Alzheimer's C ommunity Care. F or more information,visit www.alzcare.org or call (561) 683-2700.

The suspect claimed he got the bill after selling a boat to a "friend of a friend." B ut to the deputy, the story appeared counterfeit, also.

B ut a pair of women in Ve ro B each came up with a new way of shopping: the only problem was it's illegal. On three separate occasions in November, one woman would go into a store and select an item, such as a baby stroller, and then head toward the customer service desk and meet up with the other woman. The other woman would then obtain a r efund for the item that was never paid for in the first place. In all, the two women r eceived refunds of almost $700. The report doesn't explain, however, how they obtained the refunds without having paid for the items, leaving the conclusion that maybe they had phony receipts. After the third incident, they were arrested and it was all caught on video surveillance. M aybe they just didn't understand the system that you have to pay for an item in order to legally be able to obtain a refundfor it. pation is $35, and all proceeds benefit Harvest Food & Outr each Center, which works to help low-income residents stave off hunger and break the cycle of poverty through services such as teaching budgeting skills, providing job training and giving parenting classes. The rides will start and end at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center, where organizers will provide participants with lunch. Cy clists on the 30-mile route will travel to Sewall's Point, O cean Breeze Park and cross the J ensen beach Causeway as part of their trip. Those on the 60-mile ride will head to Jensen Beach, then Fort Pierce before returning. The 100-mile trekkers will continue on past the 60-mile stop point, travelling to Tradition in Port St. Lucie, heading south into Martin County and then returning to the civic center. There is a ride to complement each rider's skill level as our riders raise funds to help the hungry," said John Goings, president of the Treasure Coast Cy cling Association. It 's also an opportunity for businesses to help stave off hunger, a growing concern for many Treasure Coast families, according to information from area food pantries and nonprofits. S ponsors, such as H ometown News have joined the effort, as has Vital Chiropractic Wellness C enter, which is supporting the 100-mile leg. "W orking with the Treasure C oast Cycling Association, we hope to help raise significant funds to help families and individuals who go hungry each and every day on the Treasure C oast," said Daniel Rukeyser, spokesman for the chiropractic center. "I personally urge other businesses and individuals to get involved in the effort to break the poverty cycle on the Treasure Coast. Together, we can help feed the hungry and make a brighter future for those who are now struggling for a better future."

The breasts, handcrafted by Jim Kasper, are painted by local physicians, politicians, celebrities and men from all walks of life as their way of saying thank you to Pink Tie Friends for helping save lives in our communities." M any of the painters are partners or friends of a breast cancer patient, and others want to support the effort to fight the prevalent disease. Mr. Kasper, a J ensen Beach-based artist, created the event and invites supporters into his studios to paint the molds. The painted breasts then go to auction the following month. This year's auction is set for 5-8 p.m. on De c. 8 at the Art Life Ga llery, located at 1970 N.E. Jensen B each Blvd. This is truly a unique event that we totally support. All proceeds from the silent auction will go directly to Pink Tie Frie nds so more lives can be saved in the fight against breast cancer," said gallery o wner Rob Rifflard. The events raises between $1,500 and $2,500. "A lot of the men whose wives have had breast cancer participate, while a lot of other people show up to support breast cancer awareness," said Ms. Schilder.

A6 Gas station woesI recently purchased gas at a local gas station. The pumps had small hand written signs at the bottom of the pump which read, "Do not use this pump, no explanation." The pump jumps to between 10 and 15 cents without ever dispensing any gas. When I realized what was happening I stopped and moved to another pump. Another customerwho used the pump after me said this has been going on for more than a w eek. Is there someone I can call to complain to and find out why these pumps remain operational while stealing money and the owners get away with it? Happy holidays?Ch r istmas is coming soon and already Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land. He is trying to convince all of us to say "happy holidays" rather than "merry Christmas."Meaning of ThanksgivingThanksgiving allows us to take the time to reflect and give thanks for ourmany blessings, not the least of which is living in this special land.Our nation is faced with many crises threatening the very principles which made us great.We must not take our way of life for granted.Patriotism should be expressed at every opportunity, and Thanksgiving Day is such a time.Sign overloadWhat is going on with the new (worthless) road signs; signs to protect us from things that will never happen? E xpensive signs. An example: I live in a condo and when you exit the condo, you can only go north or south. There is an empty lot on the other side of the street. Three new signs were posted so you don't drive across the road into an empty tree filled lot. Who would ever do this? Nobody. This is repeated all up and down the street. There must be 50 signs within a few miles. There are also new signs to tell us how to turn into a turn lane. The point is, we don't need signs to tell us the obvious. This is a huge waste of our money and someone should look into who is authorizing this fraud. This is another example of government gone wild.Something here smells r eal fishy.Don't blame RubioIs n' t it a shame that we live in an era of the politics of personal destruction? S ome of Marco Rubio's detractors are seeking to smear him based on when his parents fled communist C uba.Everyone who could do so got away from Fidel Castro.Mr. Rubio's parents fled because they "could no longer live and work under a communist regime." Those who dislike the senator should argue against his policies, not try to destroy the man.Underachievers in CongressIt is an understatement to say that our Congress is a group of underachievers.This nation should know from Europe's experience that you cannot spend yourself into prosperity because much of Europe is in desperate financial straits. C ongress is reluctant to cut spending or to cut budget deficits. It should have learned this clear lesson.We have a stern warning but there is little evidence Congress appreciates the gravity of the situation.P ost Office money pitThe money-losing Post Office is not the only government agency in shambles but it is one we see frequently. This bureaucracy is a hulking, foundering, money-hemorrhaging behemoth, which has employees earning above-average salaries and getting generous benefits and pensions. It has more vehicles than any other organization on the planet.Virtually all government agencies are inefficient but this one takes the cake, a very expensive cake.Global crisisWe seem to be spiraling downward.First, it was Greece facing bankruptcy.Then it was Ireland and Portugal in financial trouble. Last week, South Africa had its bonds downgraded. But worst of all, Spain and Italy are now being exposed as unable to pay their debts. The only hope for survival is drastic action, but the socialists who run much of Europe lack the courage to make spending cuts. Is there a message for us here in the United S tates?Golden boy no moreWe voters are a bunch of boobs. When Jon Corzine, the golden boy of Wall Street, appeared on the scene as a candidate for governor of New Jersey, voters swallowed his pitch that he knew finance and could help the state. U sing some of the hundreds of millions he cashed out when he left Goldman Sachs, he bought the election.He promptly ran the state into the ground. After he was termed out, he took over MF Global, and guess what?That firm is belly-up and the golden boy is seen for what he is: a fake and a failure.When in RomeA report from Rome indicates Italy's economy is hampered by high-wage costs, fat government payrolls, excessive taxes, choking bureaucracy and an educational system which produces one of the lowest levels of college graduates. This should ring a bell and wake up some Americans because it sounds very much like the United States. VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2011 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Got something to say?

L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Regular readers of my column are familiar with the saga of my being reported to the F lorida Highway Safety and M otor Vehicle department, FHSMV, as a mentally or physically incompetent driver. I became aware of this approximately two w eeks after I was ticketed for speeding by a North P alm Beach policeman. The letter I received from the FHSMV started out, This agency has received information expressing concerns about your ability to drive safely. Please call the driver license office below to set up an appointment to take the vision, written, driving (in traffic) and hearing examinations." I looked into this and learned this "information expressing concerns about my ability to drive" was r eported to the FHSMV under a little-known Florida law, 322.126(2), (3), which allows "any person" to confidentially report any other Florida driver as unable to drive safely and be held harmless from all civil or criminal liability even if the report was malicious in intent. I subsequently started a petition at www.DumbLa w .org to change this law. I've also met with two F lorida legislators, Democr at Irv Slosberg of Boca R aton and Republican Pat R ooney of Palm Beach Ga r dens, to ask their assistance to change this law in Tallahassee. Both strongly support my position and have agreed to help me. U nder the law, the FHSMV keeps secret the name of the informant. How ever, after a little detective work, I came up with a "person of interest" or suspect in my case. He is a No r th Palm Beach policeman, the same one who ticketed me for speeding two weeks before I received the letter from the FHSMV. It turns out this officer's wife was recently employed by me at my Toyota dealership. F or what I believed were good reasons, I was forced to terminate her employment. She subsequently sued me under the EEOC for wrongful termination and my insurance company settled the case. I was also able to learn from the FHSMV the informant was a "professional" meaning a police officer or doctor. S ince my doctor agreed to give me a letter stating that I was 100 percent mentally and physically capable of driving a car, that left a policeman. The only policeman that I'd had any dealing with in quite some time was this North Palm B each policeman. F inally, I did take and pass all of the required driving tests, written, eye test, hearing test, driving in traffic and driving on a special course. In fact, I not only passed, I passed with flying colors. My hearing and eyesight (20/20 with glasses) were perfect. I completed all of the driving tests without a single mistake and I missed only one question on the test (I could have passed missing up to10). These findings prove that the "person" who reported me to the FHSMV was either mistaken or not telling the truth. Since we know that the "person" was a professional, it would seemPolice take the fifth' on abuse of power incident ON CARSEARL STEWART Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 11 02 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comMARTINV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

That's the takeaway from meetings I attended around the state r ecently where PIP auto insurance fraud was the topic of discussion. PIP, or personal injury protection, is insurance coverage added to your overall auto policy that is intended to pay for medical and other expenses associated with a car crash, regardless of fault. In F lorida, a minimum of $10,000 PIP coverage is re quired with each policy. We pay the highest auto liability insurance premiums in the nation, 56 percent more than other states. U nfortunately, Florida also leads the nation in staged accidents and questionable claims, which is why the number of crashes is going down, while the number of PIP claims and the cost of those claims is going up. After receiving a PIP fraud update during the cabinet meeting in Tallahassee, Jeff Atwater, F lorida's chief financial officer and I participated in listening meetings with F loridians in Tallahassee, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, GOVERNORRICK S COTT See SCOTT, A9 See S TEWART, A8 THIS WEEKS LUCKY THIS WEEKS LUCKYBUMPER STICKER VEHICLE If This is your license plate go to the nearest HTN Office to verify by noon Tuesday.THIS WEEKS LUCKY WINNER WILL GET$300 GET YOUR BUMPER STICKER TODAY!Stop by ANY office or CALL!!!WIN $100-$1000 I My VOLUSIA CO. 386-322-5900 BREVARD CO. 321-242-1013 INDIAN RIVER CO. 772-569-6767MARTIN/ST LUCIE CO.772-465-5656 689155

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 Martin County A7 MARTIN COUNTY A S tuart company is breaking the mold when it comes to providing quality home improvements at prices significantly below market r ates. Pr emier Tile and Grout is setting itself apart from the competition by delivering a superior level of service at a fraction of the cost. Owner Todd Thomas Jackson, who studied economics and construction business management at the University of Florida, saw the opportunity to create a niche business in 2010. "A t the time, with the economy being the way it is, people didn't want to spend a lot of money. They wanted a brand-new floor or shower, but didn't want to spend or had the money for a whole new renovation," he said. To meet that need, his company offers solutions that remove eye-sores, enhance a room's beauty and protect it against future damage. F or about $300-$600, for instance, Premier Tile and Grout can renovate a shower by r emoving all caulking, silicone and grout before cleaning the tiles. Workers then color-seal the new grout using a palette that matches the customer's needs and ensures the room is evenly finished. Anybody can clean tiles, but to get the grout to be uniformly clean is the tough part," Mr. Jackson said. "We clean everything to showr oom condition, and then r einstall it all. It's like having Business Photos courtesy of Todd Thomas JacksonThese photos show kitchens and bathrooms before and after Stuart-based Premier Tile and Grout cleaned and restored them to showroom condition.

F riday, December 2, 2011 A8 Martin CountyHometown Newsunlikely that he was mistaken. F eeling the above circumstantial evidence uncovered by my detective work was ov erwhelming, I decided to confront the town of North P alm Beach. Through my attorney, I spoke with the vice mayor, who agreed to talk to the chief of police. When I didn't hear back for a while, I was told that the matter was being discussed with the "collective bargaining" entity for the police department, the PBA. After several weeks, the North P alm Beach town attorney wrote me a letter stating the town's position on my allegations. This is the pertinent part of the letter: "W ith respect to the letter Mr. Stewart received from the Department of Highway S afety and Motor Vehicles r equesting that he appear for re-examination, Section 322.126(3), Florida Statutes, states that any report r egarding a licensed driver's mental or physical disability to drive is confidential and exempt from disclosure pursuant to Florida public r ecords law. The Florida Legislature has expressly determined that such r eports shall not be disclosed or used for any purpose other than determining the qualification of a person to operate a motor vehicle on the highways of this state. As such, no civil or criminal action may be brought against any physician, person or agency who r eports a potential disability to the DMV, nor shall any such report be used as evidence in any civil or criminal trial or in any court proceeding. 322.126(3) & (4), F lorida Stat. (2011). See also D uckworth v. State, 923 So. 2d 530 (Fla. 4th DCA 2006). The Florida Legislature has clearly determined that the overriding public interest in ensuring that all licensed drivers possess the r equisite ability to operate a motor vehicle trump any concerns raised by licensed drivers regarding the circumstances surrounding the filing of such a report. "I n light of the foregoing, even if the village possessed information regarding a medical report filed with the DMV concerning Mr. S tewart, the village is prohibited from disclosing the information set forth therein. A dditionally, neither your client nor the village can utilize the report as evidence in any criminal or civil proceedings unrelated to Mr. Stewart's qualification to operate a motor vehicle. "S hould you have any questions relative to the foregoing, please do not to hesitate to contact me." After reading the above, I think you can appreciate my title to this article. Most people understand that people accused of a crime in America can elect to "refuse to answer on the grounds that it might tend to incriminate them." If you feel the same way I do about this, taking the fifth" it's just another way of saying "I'm guilty but you'll have to prove it without my cooperation." I'm betting this police officer has never filed another report under this statute before in the remote chance that he believed in good faith the driver lacked the physical or mental qualifications to drive. It 's a shame, arguably disgraceful, that law enforcement in North Palm B each allows its officers to quench their personal agendas by abusing their official position and then hiding behind a statute's confidentially provisions. I'm sure the confidentially provision was not made part of the stature by the legislature to allow police officers to file reports in bad faith and with no objective basis. My attorney tells me that, in spite of this statute, I have grounds to sue on the basis that this Florida statute is unconstitutional and that a judge could overturn this part of the law. But I don't want to sue the town of No r th Palm Beach, the cop who reported me or anybody else. What I do want is for the town and the police officer to do the right thing, which is to sincerely apologize. I would also like the town to take the necessary precautions to see that this never happens again to anybody else driving through the town of North Palm Beach.

We learned that if we do nothing, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation predicts a 29 percent PIP pure premium increase each year. While the pure premium increase directly impacts the insurer, the costs get passed down to consumers through rate hikes, since insurers must raise rates to close the gap created by ra pidly increasing fraud costs. In a time when we're working every day to get F lorida's economy back on its feet, the last thing we need is fraudsters to cause auto insurance premiums to skyrocket and raise the cost of living in this state, something I have vowed to prevent as governor. After listening to constituents affected by PIP fraud and their solutions to the problem, I announced four pillars that must be addressed to fix PIP: fraud prevention, litigation r eform, utilization and provider reform and accountability. My expectation is that we will provide significant PIP reform this legislative session. F lorida consumers have already paid more than $800 million for PIP fraud ov er the last several years and enough is enough. F lorida needs better protections for consumers, and I am committed to holding the line on runaway premiums in order to fulfill my promise to keep the cost of living low and get our state back to work.

The technique is applicable in more than 90 percent of cases, and shaves thousands off expenses. Alternative renovations cost at least $3,000-$4,000 and can take about a week to complete. C ustomers find the change dazzling, and their positive feedback about the company is the primary reason behind Premier Tile and Grout's strong growth in the last y ear. C ustomer referrals and r epeat business drive revenue, and company staffers say they work hard to keep earning positive word of mouth." "I t really is about the w ow factor' when we're done. A lot of people think we can make (a room) look good, but we can't make it look brand new. But they're blown away when we're done," Mr. Jackson said. To help ensure each job attains high standards, Mr. J ackson meets every client and visits each work site. Ev en though extended customer consultations appear to reduce the company's productivity, the payoff is an in-depth understanding of each client's need and an opportunity to fully meet that expectation. "I might not make as much money as I could on a job, but when every customer is happy and goes and tells five friends, it serves me better in the long run and also saves thousands in advertising costs," he said. It 's a lesson the entrepreneur learned from longtime area businessman J oseph Flynn, whom he credits with helping to shape his corporate strategy. B est advice: deliver a level of service that clients will remember and mention to others, said Mr. F lynn, who has been in business for about 40 years and owns Martin County J anitorial. That's why Premier Tile and Grout never gives clients long appointment windows. It provides set times for service, rather than several hours on a given day when its workers will deliver service. The idea, Mr. Jackson said, is to never take the customer for granted. That's how Premier Tile and Grout has really grown," he said. "I know a lot of companies get so big that the owner is more concerned with business development. But in my mind, if I satisfy my customers, the business will develop."

The parade is an eagerly awaited tradition here in S tuart," says parade cochairwoman, Mary H utchinson. "I t is hard to say who is more excited, the schools, churches, civic clubs and businesses who create these spectacular floats, or the thousands of spectators who line East Ocean Bouleva rd to watch the parade and celebrate the start of the holiday season." Mo re than 70 groups have signed up to participate in the event. Re velers will include S anta Claus, marching bands and participants in lighted floats and antique cars. Leading the celebration will be Grand Marshall J oe Crankshaw, a local journalist, veteran and historian. Organizer, Stuart Main St r eet, will award a prize to the overall favorite float, as w ell as honors for those with the best light displays in various categories.

F riday, December 2, 2011 B8 Martin CountyHometown News Mitch Kloorfain /chief photographerMartin County Tiger Mitchell Patterson gets sandwiched between Freedom Whitfield and Charles Ballard of the Fort Pierce Central Cobras during the region 3-7A semi-finals at Calvin Trippett Field at Lawnwood Stadium in Fort Pierce Friday, Nov. 25. The 31-7 Tiger loss eliminated them from post season play.Mistakes made early, often end Martin County's seasonTREASURE COAST A crowd of more than 1,600 the day after Thankgiving packed Lawnwood Stadium in Fort Pierce ready to see two rivals go at it. U nfortunately, for the fans w earing yellow and blue, it was over before it ever really got started, while fans in purple and gold had something to immediately cheer about. Fr om the opening whistle, a series of costly mistakes would ruin any chance Martin County had of getting by the squad that has been the most impressive in the Treasure Coast all year long. The Fo rt Pierce Central Cobras lived to play another day this season after thrashing Martin C ounty 31-7 in the FHSAA 37A Regional Semifinal matchup held Nov. 25 at C alvin Trippett Field at Lawnwood Stadium. After electing to receive the opening kickoff, Tigers r eturner Jeremey Patterson w ent back to field a Miguel Mo r ales kick angled toward the sideline. As Patterson caught the ball, his left foot was out of bounds at the Martin County 1-yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, Cobras lineman Donovan intercepted a pass from Nolan Mullen, setting up the Cobra offense at the T igers 10-yard line. T wo plays later, Marcus Levy, would score from 2 yards out to put the Central on top just 64 seconds into the game. "W e can't do what we did coming out of these gates and expect to compete in the second and third rounds against great teams," said Martin C ounty head coach Chuck K enyon after the playoff loss. After forcing a Tigers' 3and-out, the Cobras extended their lead when Levy added a second touchdown on a 32yard, fourth-down reception, which, including several missed Tigers tackles, completed a 74-yard drive. That scenario would be r epeated, this time after another Tigers 3-and-out, it would be Jameel Jackson running a slant pattern, catching a pass for Marcus Sigmon and sprinting away from the defense for the 25-yard touchdown reception. The J ackson touchdown completed consecutive 70-plus yard drives for Central. The proverbial nail-in-the coffin for Martin Country occurred on the first play in the second quarter when Fr eedom Whitfield intercepted a Mullen pass and r eturned it to the house and with just 12 seconds into the second period, the scoreboard read 28-0 Central. "I saw three people in front of me, I saw a crease I could get through, and it was green grass from that point on," Whitfield said about his interception. "I 'm just so proud of these kids and the way they performed tonight, especially in the first half," Cobras head coach Josh Shaffer said after the win. F or the second week in a ro w, all three phases of the C entral attack was excellent. The defense was dominant, causing three turnovers and did not allow Martin County to enter Cobra territory until 2:17 left in the first half. The special teams never allowed the Tigers to start with great field position in the first half (average starting point-own 18-yard line). Out of the six Central kickoffs, four went for touchbacks.

VERO BEACH Vero B each High School's girl's v arsity soccer team played the Jensen Beach Falcons on No v. 22 at Hobart Park. The I ndians won the hardfought game 4-2. The game was paced quickly from the beginning, the defense on each team keeping the ball from going into the goal well into the first half. The Indian's defense had a hard time keeping the ball away from their goal, giving Jensen multiple opportunities to score, only to be stopped by goalkeeper, Destiny Kelley. "W e came out with a lot of intensity from the get go," said Indians Coach Jose Gibert. "Once we engaged we we re in the game." The Indian's offensive was put to the test. The Falcon's players used their heads to keep the ball away from their goal. Taylor Townsend, a strong header in the game, said overcoming the fear of the ball hitting your face or head wasn't hard. "Y ou just go up there and do it," said Townsend. "You can't care about anything." I ndian defender Alex Kuh was ready to defend against To wnsend all night. The game was physical. Many players were knocked down tumbling with other players most of the night. "I t was very physical," said K uh. "I think we did really w ell and we played to our abilities. It's hard and sometimes it brings you down, but you've just got to get back up." The Indians were the first to score with 11:45 left in the first half. B oth teams struggled for ball control, each team trying to "win" the ball before the other team. The Falcons usually beat the Indians to the ball, but the Indians had better control with it afterward. The key to scoring in this game was to be ahead of the defenders. Just before the half, freshman Alana Hockenhull scored a goal, bringing the Indians to 2-0. "I t was 2-0 at the half, and they started out with a lot of shots," said Gibert. "We got in there and challenged them. We knew this was going to be well matched and they are very well coached." C oming out of the half, each team played with re newed energy and an already fast-paced game picked up even more. H ockenhull scored another goal minutes into the second half and the Indians seemed to have the game in hand, shortly after scoring another goal to bring the score to 4-0. The Falcons Kelly Crispin scored the first goal against the Indians, who seemed to gain footing by scoring the goal. W ith the score at 4-1, the F alcons defense stopped the I ndians from scoring, allowing only a few attempts on their goal. The last goal of the game was from Falcon Jackie By ers, who was hurt in the first half. With no time on the clock left, the Indians won 4-2. "I feel like we did a good job," said Falcon's Coach P atty Morris. "I don't think the score reflects what happened tonight, but we'd r ather lose a good game than win a bad game." M orris did not think this loss was something to feel bad about. "W e have to make some improvements," she said "B ut this is not a game we have to recover from, we just move on. I am not hanging my head down or stepping backwards. We just need to go forward." The Indians (4-0-1) will have a rematch with Treasure Coast High School Dec. 6 for an away district match. The Falcons (5-1-2) will play S uncoast High School at home on Dec. 7. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 Martin County B9Indians defense holds off FalconsBy Brittany LlorenteF or Hometown NewsOutF rom page B7 € Air Conditioning &Heating € Commercial &Residential € Sales Service Installation € Same Day Service No extra charge for 24 Hour Emergency including Nights Weekends Holidays685871Dont be surprised by a cold front 10 YEARSLic. # CAC058508 Insured772-232-1114 676036 The Ultimate Golf ExperienceA Public Course with a Private Club Feel...FA CILITIES INCLUDE:€ 18 Hole Championship Golf Course € Restaurant with Full Bar € Banquet Facilities € Stocked Golf Shop € Lessons with PGAInstructors € 15 Acre Driving Range with All Grass Tees € Professional Golf Fittings by Brians Precision GolfRegular 18 Hole Golf Rate $50 Including cart w/G.P.S V isit www.floridaclubgolf.com for Online Specials $4000Before 12:00 pmIncludes Cart with G.P.S.$3000After 12:00 pmIncludes Cart with G.P.S.Good for up to 4 playersExp. on 12/9/11 Good for up to 4 playersExp. on 12/9/11 $2000after 3:00 pmIncludes Cart with G.P.S.Good for up to 4 playersExp. on 12/9/11 Banquet Facilities for All Occasions Exit 101 SR76 1/2 Mile West of I-95 Stuart,Florida772-287-3680Ex. 0 759932 New Tires at Wholesale Prices WE WILL MEET OR BEAT COMPETITORS PRICES!Specials...Specials...

contest matching these two, C entral had all the right answers, while the Tigers didn' t have an answer for Levy. In an Oct. 21 meeting at B ob Collins Field, the Tigers w ent 27-0, thanks, in large part, of Levy racking up 281 yards on the ground. In the r egional semifinal, Levy would contribute 155 rushing yards, adding another 61 yards receiving. Sigmon was sharp, completing 10 of 11 passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns. "S igmon is doing a great job in leading the offense and when in doubt, they give it to Levy who is a beast of a running back," Kenyon said of two Central stars. A key part of the Central game plan was the ability to counter Martin County's defensive pressure by using the screen pass, going to that play four times in the first half. "W e knew that they were going to come after us this game," Shaffer said. "They did a good job last game confusing our offensive line with blitzes, so we really wanted to establish the screen early and often." S igmon's only incompletion served to be his mistake. While rolling out, Sigmon tossed an interception to B oston College-bound ballhawk Justin Simmons in the third quarter. The Simmons interception would setup the only Martin County score, when on the next play, R eshawd Fyne busted up the middle through the Cobras defense for a 50-yard touchdown run. In a game that was already decided, the scariest moment of the contest took placed late in the third. Simmons, while r unning the ball, was tackled hard by several Central players, landing on his neck. S immons could be heard screaming in pain from the sideline immediately after the play ended. He tried to slowly get up, crawling on his hands and knees for a couple of yards before laying face down on the turf as the Martin C ounty coaching and training staff ran on the field to attend to him. The game was delayed for 10 minutes as Simmons, who had feeling in all of his extremities, was taken off on a stretcher to Lawnwood M edical Center. S hortly after the game, Ma r tin County athletic director sent the following out in a text message: "Simmons is OK. Leaving ER soon." N ext up for the Cobras is the 3-7A Regional Final this Fr iday as Central will travel three hours to Bradenton to face off against Manatee (102), a team that is currently 22nd nationally, in the MaxPr eps Freeman Rankings and 21st nationally, in the MaxPr eps Xcellent 25 poll. Manatee also finished ranked fifth in Class 7A.

Still, while it's fun to recall holidays past, it's also fun to make new traditions with our "Florida families," as one expert described it. In this issue, there is a serious story about coping with the holidays. For many, far from families, perhaps financially challenged, the holidays are not what they once we re If there has been a loss, this time of year can be very difficult. E xperts from area hospitals and counseling centers have suggestions for making the holiday season a peaceful time and a time of hope. The Nutcracker Ballet" is a tradition at this time of year and several of the editions of "Forever Y oung" feature stories about area productions. At the Riverside Theatre, there is a Nutcracker' featuring the music of Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington, for a "S wingtime Nutcracker." In Ma r tin County, seniors who attend the Council on Aging's day center will narrate the story and students from Florida Arts and D ance will dance excerpts from the ballet in an inter-generational By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See SPECIAL Page 6

Santa has a room at the Inn that children can visit when he is not in residence. Children can see Santa's desk covered with letters from children and his empty black boots.Photo courtesy of Cheryl Baker Inn celebrates season in style INDIANTOWN When Baltimore banker S. Davies Warfield came to Indiantown in the 1920s, he had grand plans for the area. He hoped to make Indiantown the southern headquarters for his r ailroad and he built a city around his plans. The centerpiece of his town was the Seminole Inn, and when it opened, he invited his niece, Wallis Wa r field, to attend the gala festivities. She would later move to England and become the Duchess of Windsor. T oday, Jonnie Frewelling is the innkeeper and daughter of the o wner. Christmas is a very important holiday there and Ms. F lewelling talked recently about holiday plans. Each year we have a Dickens Christmas," she said. "Three's an old-fashioned, traditional Christmas meal, with a standing rib roast, English peas, fruit salad, Yorkshire pudding and mulled cider." While the meal is Dickensian, the theme for the year varies. One of Ms. Flewelling's favorites was Angels Unaware." These are angels you don't know are there," she said. There's a long tradition in our family of Christmas miracles. At Christmas time, God hears the prayers of children. Sometimes we, as adults, miss what's important." Ms. Flewelling remembered a Christmas after her divorce, when she and her young son were living with her parents. Her son desperately wanted a dog, but Ms. F lewelling felt her parents didn't need a pet as well as the family. On Christmas morning, her son ran outside and came back in to thank them for the dog. A little dog had come to the house. Lady moved in and stayed for a y ear and moved on," Ms. Flewelling said. Sh e just filled a need. It got him through the first year. We were so caught up that we didn't hear what he needed." At the Inn, Christmas is a holy time as well as a holiday. "W e have a Nativity and my mother tells the Christmas story," Ms. Flewelling said. "S he's 82 and she tells it from memory." The decorating for Christmas starts on Dec. 1. Santa visits every S unday in December and he has a r oom at the Inn that children can visit when he's not in residence. They'll see letters on his desk and his empty boots. While Christmas is a special time for Ms Flewelling, it is also a difficult one. Her son died 10 years ago. "H e was the biggest fan of Christmas," she said. "I 'm finally able to celebrate again without crying. It's a time to reflect and think about the year ahead and try to remember the less fortunate." Ms. Flewelling grew up in Big C yprus in Immokalee in a family that was very poor. "W e lived in a room 12 feet by 12 feet with a dirt floor," she said. Christmas has always been about family. Some years there were more gifts and some not many. It's always been a time for each other, and for what you give, not what you get." Tr aditions were important in their household. "F or 50 years we went to Aunt N ellie's for Christmas Eve," she said. "My mom still cooks Christmas dinner for 35-40 of us." Ms. Flewelling never forgets what Christmas is about. "I t' s a time of remembering Christ was born," she said. "That was the real joy. I taught Special Ed and there was always some child desperately in need of Christmas.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Coping with holiday stress takes planning STUART For many people, the holiday season brings to mind family and friends, the aroma of baking, the fun of buying and wrapping presents for the kids. For many in Florida, families are far away, money may be tighter and it doesn't seem wroth it to prepare when it's just for one or two. K im Ouellette is an oncology social worker at Martin Memorials H ealth Systems and she sees many people who are sad because things are not the way they used to be at holiday time. "C r eate a new tradition or adjust an old one," she said. "If the family is all here, let the torch pass and let the kids host it," she said. "We see a lot of people where the grandparents are here and the kids are up north. Schedule a time to phone. Sk ype is a really good thing to do." M any older people are distressed that they don't have the r esources to spend that they once had. Ms. Ouellette said that they should realize they are not alone in feeling a financial pinch. "W e' re all embarrassed," she said. "We're all living in this economy. If you plan to buy gifts, don't wait until the last minute. Lay-away is making a comeback. Set aside $10 a week instead of putting it all at one time." Ms. Ouellette also suggested a S ecret Santa, where family members buy only one gift for a particular person. Remember, too, that if the demands are more than you can meet, it's all right to say no. F or people who are alone, Ms O uellette said that keeping busy is very important. "I f they live in an active community, they can do something with their Florida family,'" she said. "T ake a small trip if they have the r esources, or go to a movie. "I t' s important to keep in touch. When we isolate, we open the door and invite depression to come in. It creeps up on y ou and before you know it, you're in a dark place." It 's also important to take care of y ourself. When we're stressed, we don't care of ourselves," she said. When you're under stress, the immune system is at risk. Get a good night's sleep, exercise, eat right, and use moderation with alcohol." Fo r some, the sense of sadness is heightened by a loss, through death or divorce. "I f it's your first year without the person, you have to reframe the holiday," she said. It 's OK to reminisce and see there is still a good and happy time." Ms. Ouellette stressed the importance of seeking others. "R each out," she said. "We have support groups and hospice has free grief counseling." If a person feels that sadness has moved into depression, help is available. "T alk to your primary care physician," Ms. Ouelette said. "They can make referrals as needed. Understand that it's normal to have stress, but get help of it starts to feel like too much. You can be sad. Sometimes you need to feel anger and sadness. It will help in the long run to come out on the other side." The important thing is to have a plan. "B e proactive," Ms. Ouellette said. Don't wait for people to come to y ou.

By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor Kim Ouellette Change is good! (usually) Times change, dress changes, Even THE CHANGE' has changed. I know some of us (usually the men-folk) yearn for the Old Days' when things were simpler (For them!) but I don't think I would have fared very well at all. I cannot picture myself in a woolen bathing suit r ushing home from taking the kids to the beach so I can have a homecooked lunch waiting for my husband when he gets home from the polls while fighting hot flashes During prohibition. F amilies have certainly changed; when I go to my grandson's high school football games I find myself surrounded by my son, his younger children, his beautiful new wife, her children, my ex-daughter-in-law, her new husband, their new daughter and my son's ex-mother-in-law. Each and every one of us is standing, y elling and slapping each other on the back when our team scores. M ost symptoms of THE CHANGE' are now treatable to a certain extent, shortening the late night hours spent fanning ourselves with the freezer door considerably. H olidays may be one constant in our lives, but the way we celebrate has certainly come a long way. When my children were young we usually had the big family day at our house. Due in large part to the fact that I was usually absent from the family meetings where location was decided, my husband's family would converge in the morning, cousins usually began running and screaming in all directions just about the time M acy's parade began, we would be finishing the last piece of pie (for the moment) just as the game came on, then coffee and more pie during half time. As my family aged and grew with the addition of "significant others", the arrival of my grandchildren and new sets of in-laws, we re-invented our celebrations as necessary. I began serving a brunch on the holidays. We all brought something for brunch and my children could spend half the day with us then be free to enjoy turkey and trimmings with the other side of their families. C ontrary to popular opinion, (usually from the other side of the families) I did not arrange things this way to have the pleasure of my grandchildren's company when they were awake and bright in the morning, not tired and cranky later in the afternoon. Nor was it my intention to be the Grammy who loves them the most by filling them with hand/turkey cookies or gingerbread men just to send them to their other grandparents. (But I have to admit the words "favoritist Grammy in the world!" did spread a special kind of warmth throughout my sleepdeprived soul, as did the nap that I was now able to grab later in the afternoon). B ut still we grew. None of us have homes large enough to accommodate 45 plus people and still have room for all the cousins (second and third generation now) to run and scream, so we once again became harbingers of change. O ur latest change-vention is a huge gathering in a nearby park. We are blessed to live in a place that lives up to the title "The Sunshine State," so renting a pavilion at any of the beautiful parks in Brevard works out wonderfully.

8MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Je wish holiday celebrates miracles STUART When Chanukah begins at sundown on Dec. 20, it starts eight days of a holiday thousand of the years in the making. R abbi Jeffrey Goldwasser is the spiritual leader at Temple Beit Ha Yam in Stuart. He spoke recently about the origins and meaning of a holiday also known as The Festival of Lights. Chanukah is a minor holiday," the r abbi said. The original Chanukah was a celebration of the military victory of the Maccabees over the mighty Seleucid Empire. Israel was no longer a sovereign state, and a small army defeated the mighty empire and won independence." The Jews had been forbidden to practice their religion and the Temple in Jerusalem had been desecrated. The Temple was cleansed and prepared to be reconsecrated for Jewish worship. In fact, the word "Chanukah" means "dedication." When the Jews went to light the T emple light, they found a cruse of oil that was only enough to last for one day. It burned for eight. The miracle of the first day is that they lit it at all," Rabbi Goldwasser said. "It was a miracle of faith. Even though things are bad, and there is no way that you can get what you want, what you need will be provided. As we look upon the world today, living in difficult times, we need that message of hopefulness. If we act with integrity and faith, doing the right thing, the right outcomes will happen." To commemorate the miracle of the lights, Jews light a nine-branched candlestick known as the menorah. Eight candles stand for each day of Chanukah and the taller one is used to light the others. On each night of Chanukah, an additional candle is lit, until the entire Menorah glows. The menorah is place in front of a window to be visible to all. The idea of the menorah is to make known the miracle," the rabbi said. "W e are obliged to send a message out to the world of miraculousness and hopefulness." O ther customs of the holiday include the playing of games with a spinning top called a dreidel. Letters on each side of the dreidel symbolize the Hebrew words, "a great miracle happened there." There are many songs that tell the story of the festival and gifts are given, although they are traditionally supposed to be modest. The food most closely associated with Chanukah is potato pancakes, or latkes. The traditional foods are associated with oil and the miracle of the oil," the rabbi said. "For Eastern Europe, it was latkes. The Sephardic Jews of Western Europe and the Middle East eat jelly doughnuts." R abbi Goldwasser said that there is another story of Chanukah. When I talk to kids, part of what I emphasize is that the time of year is the darkest and includes the winter solstice," he said. "W e celebrate shifting into a time where it is increasingly light, not just literally, but in recognizing the miracles of everyday life and having our eyes open to those miracles." The rabbi stressed that Chanukah is not about spending money on expensive presents. Traditionally, gold coins, known as Chanukah gelt, were given. These days, the coins, wrapped in gold paper, are more likely made of chocolate. "I t' s about small miracles," he said. "I t' s about being with family, the miracle of having each other, of being with the community. All it takes is people for small miracles."

9MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Generations join for Nutcracker' STUART There will be a special production of the "Nutcracker Ballet" on Dec. 15. Dancers from Florida Arts & Dance will perform excerpts from the full-length ballet and several seniors who attend the Martin County C ouncil on Aging's day center will provide narration. "W e' re very excited," said Lori H ickey, the new artistic and executive director for Florida Arts & Dance. "W e' re dancing for members of the C ouncil on Aging's Kane Center and their caregivers as a Christmas holiday celebration." The special program, which is not open to the public, is the result of several discussions between the two organizations. "W e wanted to start an intergenerational collaboration with the Kane C enter," Ms. Hickey said. "There will be three participants from the center. There will be an introduction, to educate the audience about the ballet's history, an introduction to the first act and one to the second. The culmination will be a question-and-answer period with the dancer and the seniors. The seniors can ask the dancers questions and the dancers can ask the seniors about their interests." Thirty dancers will perform during the program, but the show date will not be the first time the students will be at the Center. "W e are going to have a couple of exercises at the Kane Center," Ms. H ickey said. "They will help decorate and meet one another. We take for granted that the youngsters have grandparents, but a lot of the young dancers don't have grandparents in the area. It's best to have activities prior to the Nutcracker' to be familiar and comfortable."

12MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Christmas pig roast about family as much as food For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back ov er the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980's when my younger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small rural outpost about five miles west of the St. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge O cala National Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around Central F lorida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig r oast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had r aised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. First, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others w ent into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Linda's w ell-fortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) reached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. Having regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of "A Christmas Ca r ol." As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this r ound. No w, for a big time pig roast like this to be successful the animal must be turned regularly. That task required four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin R andy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we were all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we we re able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasn't burned seemed to be cooked pretty well. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog had turned out OK, considering the cooks' lapse in sobriety and hence, attention. No one but me seemed to mind that there was no sauce. Right at the top of the hill on Linda's property grew a Florida cedar tree ov er 30 feet tall. Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar. When it was completely dark we plugged it in amid oohs" and "aahs." Later we were told it could be seen for miles. Of course, the women began to sing Christmas songs and the hungover men tried to join in as well as they could. It was certainly a Christmas to r emember. Sa dly, my sister Linda, who was a true baby boomer (born in 1947), passed away in 2003. But memories like these of that crazy pig roast keep her in our hearts especially during the holidays. These days family is still so important this time of year. My wife Lana and I center our holidays around our daughter Shayla's beautiful 8-yearold, our granddaughter Delayna. We would like to wish a merry Christmas to you all.Please enjoy each other while you can.LAND LINESD AN SMITH dren. The goal is to give away 100 bicycles and hundreds of toys.

One of the first resources that is the most important and easiest to find, is the federal census.The U.S. government has conducted a household census in every state, every 10 years since 1790. The census records from 17901930 can be searched by the public except for 1890, which was destroyed by fire. They are arranged by states and then by counties, and then in, many cases by towns or districts. Some states also took their own census in odd years.. The 1850-1880 census records include a separate mortality census listing everyone who had died in the previous year. There are also slave census records for 1850 and 1860. M any researchers ignore these r ecords completely, or only look at one or two records for their family, assuming they have learned all the facts they need. Each family should be followed all the way back through the census every 10 years, picking up children, parents, brothers and sisters, in-laws and any other relatives that show up in the household or neighborhood. Fr om 1790-1840, the census only named the head of the household, and gave the number of people living in the house. From 1850 forward, each member of the household was named, with their sex, age, and place of birth. Each census became more complex, asking more questions, adding r elationships, occupations, parents' places of birth, number of years married, number of children given birth to, and other pertinent clues. S tarting with the 1930 census, and working backward, you should look at your family, taking down all the information given and looking at the neighboring families. Often, other family members are living nearby, and these need to be noted, also. If there are other families with the same surname, they are possibly parents, brothers, uncles and cousins. John's father may be living next door to him, and in his household is grandma or grandpa. Viola!! You have three generations laid out on one or two pages. As you work your way through each census, you will find differences in the spellings of names, family members will come and go, and the family will move around the country. Each census taker had his own style. Some used only initials, some used only a first name regardless of which name is preferred. Sometimes the correct name is used, the next time it will be a nickname. Ages also will change from census to census. Use this information as a guide and not as absolute fact. The first order of business is census work. I nformation gathered here will make the rest of your research much easier.

The Merritt Island National W ildlife Refuge, established in 1963 as an overlay of NASA's John F. Ke nnedy Space Center, consists of 140,000 acres of a wide variety of habitats for more than 1,500 plants and animals. Those habitats include coastal dunes, saltwater estuaries and marshes, freshwater impoundments, scrub, pine flatwoods and hardwood hammocks. S andee Larsen, office manager for the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge Association, a "friends" group for the refuge with more than 1,000 members, said the main points of interest for the refuge are the Visitor's Center, the Black Point Wildlife Dr ive and the Haulover Canal Manatee Observation Deck. "B lack Point is a 7-mile, self-guided auto tour with 12 stops," Ms. Larsen said. "Basically, you'll see water and wading birds, alligators, otters, turtles and birds of prey.

If you're single and over 50, you may have noticed dating has changed since your teens and 20s. You've likely been married, divorced or widowed at this stage in your life, and out of the dating game for a while. And with the advent of online dating sites and social networking, meeting people has become both easier (as close as your computer) and harder than ever (is the person really who he or she says they are?). W e'd like to hear your experiences. Y ou can send your thoughts and story ideas to foreveryoungmc@hometownnewsol.com. The deadline is Dec. 15.We w ant to hear from you Aw areness is key to protecting y our identity I magine getting a phone call informing you that someone has used y our name and Social Security number to apply for a credit card, or r eceiving a collection notice in the mail for a delinquent account that isn't yours but is attributed to your name and home address. Every day, consumers find out someone is illegally using their personal information to make purchases and open new financial accounts, like credit cards and loans. U ndetected, identity fraud can lead to difficulties in applying for a mortgage, loan, new credit card or bank accounts even if you've had great credit for years. The road to r ecovery may be a long, aggravating journey, especially when you don't catch fraud immediately. Last year, 8.1 million adults were the victims of identity fraud, according to a recent Javelin Strategy & Research I dentity Fraud Survey.

linked to you like your birth date, Social Security number, phone number, or the names of family and pets. Using a mix of numbers, letters, and characters to create y our password makes it harder for others to guess. Change your passwords every 30 days, and use unique passwords on each site y ou access. Whether you're providing financial information for a loan or placing an order online, be sure the site you're using is secure. Look for a URL that begins with "https:// and has a "closed padlock" symbol in the lower right-hand corner of y our browser. U sing and regularly updating anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your computer can also help to safeguard your information from identity theft. Ne ver email personal information, such as account numbers or your social security number, to anyone, not even to yourself. Offline: It 's a smart practice to review credit card and bank statements as soon as they arrive to ensure that all activity on your accounts is accurate. U.S. consumers are entitled to one free credit report a year from the three main credit bureaus. Regularly reviewing your credit report lets you see if there are any interactions with companies you haven't contacted or accounts you didn't open. If a bill or statement you regularly receive doesn't arrive as scheduled, follow up with the sender to find out why. U se a paper shredder to shred any documents with account numbers, your social security number even your address. It will help deter "dumpster diver" identity thieves from obtaining your personal information. Ne ver carry your Social Security card or number in your wallet or purse. When writing checks, avoid listing your Social Security number, telephone or driver's license number, if possible. Another way to help safeguard yourself is to subscribe to a program, such as TD I nsurance's ITAC Sentinel¨ Plus, that offers to help protect you from identity theft by monitoring your accounts and personal information for you and sending you an alert if there is certain activity that could indicate identity theft. One last tip: If y ou or anyone you know may have fallen victim to identity theft, contact the three major credit bureaus right away Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Doing so will let them place a fraud alert on your credit reports and help to ensure that no more fraudulent activities take place. Then, close the accounts that you think have been jeopardized. File a police r eport and contact the Federal Trade Commission immediately to file a complaint, so they can record the fraudulent activity and work with other agencies to track down thieves. F ollowing these tips may help prevent a dreaded call or piece of mail that tells y ou your information is being used by someone without your permission.

S alvation Army founder Catherine B ooth, Queen Victoria of England and celebrated author and speaker Corrie T en Boom are the subjects of Molly Ber winkles third book, Greatness in Lace. They left lasting greatness on our world, said Ms. Berwinkle. I wanted to know whether there was anything similar in their lives that gave them this lasting greatness. So the Ohio-based author set out to compare the lives of the three women, r esearching their histories for her book, which includes charts, tables, comparisons and other data. H er goal was to examine whether some women seem destined to follow a path to historical significance, or if they help designed their future or degree of enduring personal significance. M s. Ber winkle examines these questions and more as she focuses on three eminent women and attempts to find a common thread visible throughout their lives of greatness, said marketer Traci Jones, a spokeswoman for T ate Publishing, which is organizing the book signing. One of the books central characters is Ms. Boom, an Amsterdam womanSee AUTHOR, A2 Painted breasts help raise thousands for cancer care See CARE, A5Rob Rifflard of the Art Life Gallery in Jensen Beach displays some of the painted breasts created for an auction by Pink Tie Friends.

who risked great personal danger under the Nazi r egime. Her autobiography The Hiding Place, tells how her family aided Jewish r efugees during the Holocaust. Another subject in Ms. Ber winkles work, Ms. Booth, was a social activist since her y outh. She started groups to fight for rights for workers toiling under deadly conditions in the 19th century. Q ueen Victoria is credited with preserving the British monarchy by transforming its r ole from a sovereign political power to a ceremonial one. The book examines how the ro yal woman handled the pressure of power. Gr eatness in Lace, examines whether despite their differences, these three women had more in common than a casual observer might first expect. Ms. Berwinkle will discuss the book during The Grace P laces holiday dinner, set for 7 p.m. on Dec. 5. H er daughter, Crystal Spr ings, is director of worship programing at The Grace P lace, located at 1550 S.E. S alerno Road, Stuart. P ALM BEACH COUNTY D an Rather will be the keynote speaker at the 2012 Alzheimers Educational Conference which will take place on May 31 and June 1 at the P alm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm B each. In addition to sharing his experiences as a worldr enowned journalist, Mr. R ather will speak on a topic that will resonate deeply with attendees: overcoming life's challenges, words of inspiration and motivation. Mr. Rathers perspective on national health care issues affecting Alzheimers families will also be of great significance to attendees. F or more than 40 years, the former CBS news anchor and Minutes correspondent, Mr. Rather has been the embodiment of the intrepid broadcast journalist. Fr om the Kennedy assassination where he was the first to break the news that the president had been killed to the Indian Ocean tsunami, he has covered every major story of his day, with distinction and a fierce dedication to hard news. On the domestic front, Mr. R ather has covered every presidential campaign since 1952. He was White House correspondent for CBS News during the administrations of Pr esidents Johnson and Nix on, and was a leading force in broadcast news investigation of the Watergate scandal. Mr. Rather has brought his experience to bear on the biggest stories of recent years. On Sept. 11, 2001, Dan R ather stayed on the air for 18 hours straight to bring Americans news of the deadly attacks on the World Trade C enter and Pentagon. In the days and weeks that followed, he became the first journalist to report from underneath The Pile at ground zero and his appearance on David Lettermans first show post-9/11 broadcast has been credited as a touchstone for American sentiment during those difficult days. In addition to Mr. Rather, the conference will feature plenary speakers Larry Polivka, Viki Kind and Teepa Snow, all leaders in the field of Alzheimers disease and related disorders who will provide the highest caliber information to attendees throughout this two-day conference. The 2012 Alzheimers Educational Conference, the second largest in the nation, is presented by Alzheimers C ommunity Care. F or more information,visit www.alzcare.org or call (561) 683-2700.

The suspect claimed he got the bill after selling a boat to a friend of a friend. B ut to the deputy, the story appeared counterfeit, also. N ot only couldnt the man name the friend of a friend, but he also did not know the name of the friend. One can hardly imagine the man saying to his fr iend, Hey, whats your name, come have a drink with me? Third times the charm: Nor mally, people walk into a store with money, a check or a credit card and walk out with an item bought using the money, check or credit card. B ut a pair of women in Ve ro Beach came up with a new way of shopping: the only problem was its illegal. On three separate occasions in November, one woman would go into a store and select an item, such as a baby stroller, and then head toward the customer service desk and meet up with the other woman. The other woman would then obtain a r efund for the item that was never paid for in the first place. In all, the two women r eceived refunds of almost $700. The report doesnt explain, however, how they obtained the refunds without having paid for the items, leaving the conclusion that maybe they had phony receipts. After the third incident, they were arrested and it was all caught on video surveillance. M aybe they just didnt understand the system that you have to pay for an item in order to legally be able to obtain a refundfor it. pation is $35, and all proceeds benefit Harvest Food & Outr each Center, which works to help low-income residents stave off hunger and break the cycle of poverty through services such as teaching budgeting skills, providing job training and giving parenting classes. The rides will start and end at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center, where organizers will provide participants with lunch. Cy clists on the 30-mile route will travel to Sewalls Point, O cean Breeze Park and cross the J ensen beach Causeway as part of their trip. Those on the 60-mile ride will head to Jensen Beach, then Fort Pierce before returning. The 100-mile trekkers will continue on past the 60-mile stop point, travelling to Tradition in Port St. Lucie, heading south into Martin County and then returning to the civic center. There is a ride to complement each riders skill level as our riders raise funds to help the hungry, said John Goings, president of the Treasure Coast Cy cling Association. It s also an opportunity for businesses to help stave off hunger, a growing concern for many Treasure Coast families, according to information from area food pantries and nonprofits. S ponsors, such as H ometown News have joined the effort, as has Vital Chiropractic Wellness C enter, which is supporting the 100-mile leg. W orking with the Treasure C oast Cycling Association, we hope to help raise significant funds to help families and individuals who go hungry each and every day on the Treasure C oast, said Daniel Rukeyser, spokesman for the chiropractic center. I personally urge other businesses and individuals to get involved in the effort to break the poverty cycle on the Treasure Coast. Together, we can help feed the hungry and make a brighter future for those who are now struggling for a better future.

The breasts, handcrafted by Jim Kasper, are painted by local physicians, politicians, celebrities and men from all walks of life as their way of saying thank you to Pink Tie Friends for helping save lives in our communities. M any of the painters are partners or friends of a breast cancer patient, and others want to support the effort to fight the prevalent disease. Mr. Kasper, a J ensen Beach-based artist, created the event and invites supporters into his studios to paint the molds. The painted breasts then go to auction the following month. This years auction is set for 5-8 p.m. on De c. 8 at the Art Life Ga llery, located at 1970 N.E. Jensen B each Blvd. This is truly a unique event that we totally support. All proceeds from the silent auction will go directly to Pink Tie Frie nds so more lives can be saved in the fight against breast cancer, said gallery o wner Rob Rifflard. The events raises between $1,500 and $2,500.

A6 Gas station woesI recently purchased gas at a local gas station. The pumps had small hand written signs at the bottom of the pump which read, Do not use this pump, no explanation. The pump jumps to between 10 and 15 cents without ever dispensing any gas. When I realized what was happening I stopped and moved to another pump. Another customerwho used the pump after me said this has been going on for more than a w eek. Is there someone I can call to complain to and find out why these pumps remain operational while stealing money and the owners get away with it? Happy holidays?Chr istmas is coming soon and already Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land. He is trying to convince all of us to say happy holidays rather than merry Christmas.Meaning of ThanksgivingThanksgiving allows us to take the time to reflect and give thanks for ourmany blessings, not the least of which is living in this special land.Our nation is faced with many crises threatening the very principles which made us great.We must not take our way of life for granted.Patriotism should be expressed at every opportunity, and Thanksgiving Day is such a time.Sign overloadWhat is going on with the new (worthless) road signs; signs to protect us from things that will never happen? E xpensive signs. An example: I live in a condo and when you exit the condo, you can only go north or south. There is an empty lot on the other side of the street. Three new signs were posted so you dont drive across the road into an empty tree filled lot. Who would ever do this? Nobody. This is repeated all up and down the street. There must be 50 signs within a few miles. There are also new signs to tell us how to turn into a turn lane. The point is, we dont need signs to tell us the obvious. This is a huge waste of our money and someone should look into who is authorizing this fraud. This is another example of government gone wild.Something here smells r eal fishy.Dont blame RubioIs n t it a shame that we live in an era of the politics of personal destruction? S ome of Marco Rubios detractors are seeking to smear him based on when his parents fled communist C uba.Everyone who could do so got away from Fidel Castro.Mr. Rubios parents fled because they could no longer live and work under a communist regime. Those who dislike the senator should argue against his policies, not try to destroy the man.Underachievers in CongressIt is an understatement to say that our Congress is a group of underachievers.This nation should know from Europes experience that you cannot spend yourself into prosperity because much of Europe is in desperate financial straits. C ongress is reluctant to cut spending or to cut budget deficits. It should have learned this clear lesson.We have a stern warning but there is little evidence Congress appreciates the gravity of the situation.P ost Office money pitThe money-losing Post Office is not the only government agency in shambles but it is one we see frequently. This bureaucracy is a hulking, foundering, money-hemorrhaging behemoth, which has employees earning above-average salaries and getting generous benefits and pensions. It has more vehicles than any other organization on the planet.Virtually all government agencies are inefficient but this one takes the cake, a very expensive cake.Global crisisWe seem to be spiraling downward.First, it was Greece facing bankruptcy.Then it was Ireland and Portugal in financial trouble. Last week, South Africa had its bonds downgraded. But worst of all, Spain and Italy are now being exposed as unable to pay their debts. The only hope for survival is drastic action, but the socialists who run much of Europe lack the courage to make spending cuts. Is there a message for us here in the United S tates?Golden boy no moreWe voters are a bunch of boobs. When Jon Corzine, the golden boy of Wall Street, appeared on the scene as a candidate for governor of New Jersey, voters swallowed his pitch that he knew finance and could help the state. U sing some of the hundreds of millions he cashed out when he left Goldman Sachs, he bought the election.He promptly ran the state into the ground. After he was termed out, he took over MF Global, and guess what?That firm is belly-up and the golden boy is seen for what he is: a fake and a failure.When in RomeA report from Rome indicates Italys economy is hampered by high-wage costs, fat government payrolls, excessive taxes, choking bureaucracy and an educational system which produces one of the lowest levels of college graduates. This should ring a bell and wake up some Americans because it sounds very much like the United States. VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2011 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Got something to say?

L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Regular readers of my column are familiar with the saga of my being reported to the F lorida Highway Safety and M otor Vehicle department, FHSMV, as a mentally or physically incompetent driver. I became aware of this approximately two w eeks after I was ticketed for speeding by a North P alm Beach policeman. The letter I received from the FHSMV started out, This agency has received information expressing concerns about your ability to drive safely. Please call the driver license office below to set up an appointment to take the vision, written, driving (in traffic) and hearing examinations. I looked into this and learned this information expressing concerns about my ability to drive was r eported to the FHSMV under a little-known Florida law, 322.126(2), (3), which allows any person to confidentially report any other Florida driver as unable to drive safely and be held harmless from all civil or criminal liability even if the report was malicious in intent. I subsequently started a petition at www.DumbLaw .org to change this law. Ive also met with two F lorida legislators, Democr at Irv Slosberg of Boca R aton and Republican Pat R ooney of Palm Beach Gar dens, to ask their assistance to change this law in Tallahassee. Both strongly support my position and have agreed to help me. U nder the law, the FHSMV keeps secret the name of the informant. How ever, after a little detective work, I came up with a person of interest or suspect in my case. He is a Nor th Palm Beach policeman, the same one who ticketed me for speeding two weeks before I received the letter from the FHSMV. It turns out this officers wife was recently employed by me at my Toyota dealership. F or what I believed were good reasons, I was forced to terminate her employment. She subsequently sued me under the EEOC for wrongful termination and my insurance company settled the case. I was also able to learn from the FHSMV the informant was a professional meaning a police officer or doctor. S ince my doctor agreed to give me a letter stating that I was 100 percent mentally and physically capable of driving a car, that left a policeman. The only policeman that Id had any dealing with in quite some time was this North Palm B each policeman. F inally, I did take and pass all of the required driving tests, written, eye test, hearing test, driving in traffic and driving on a special course. In fact, I not only passed, I passed with flying colors. My hearing and eyesight (20/20 with glasses) were perfect. I completed all of the driving tests without a single mistake and I missed only one question on the test (I could have passed missing up to10). These findings prove that the person who reported me to the FHSMV was either mistaken or not telling the truth. Since we know that the person was a professional, it would seemPolice take the fifth on abuse of power incident ON CARSEARL STEWART Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

Thats the takeaway from meetings I attended around the state r ecently where PIP auto insurance fraud was the topic of discussion. PIP, or personal injury protection, is insurance coverage added to your overall auto policy that is intended to pay for medical and other expenses associated with a car crash, regardless of fault. In F lorida, a minimum of $10,000 PIP coverage is re quired with each policy. We pay the highest auto liability insurance premiums in the nation, 56 percent more than other states. U nfortunately, Florida also leads the nation in staged accidents and questionable claims, which is why the number of crashes is going down, while the number of PIP claims and the cost of those claims is going up.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 Martin County A7 MARTIN COUNTY A S tuart company is breaking the mold when it comes to providing quality home improvements at prices significantly below market r ates. Pr emier Tile and Grout is setting itself apart from the competition by delivering a superior level of service at a fraction of the cost. Owner Todd Thomas Jackson, who studied economics and construction business management at the University of Florida, saw the opportunity to create a niche business in 2010. A t the time, with the economy being the way it is, people didnt want to spend a lot of money. They wanted a brand-new floor or shower, but didnt want to spend or had the money for a whole new renovation, he said. To meet that need, his company offers solutions that remove eye-sores, enhance a rooms beauty and protect it against future damage. F or about $300-$600, for instance, Premier Tile and Grout can renovate a shower by r emoving all caulking, silicone and grout before cleaning the tiles. Workers then color-seal the new grout using a palette that matches the customers needs and ensures the room is evenly finished. Anybody can clean tiles, but to get the grout to be uniformly clean is the tough part, Mr. Jackson said. We clean everything to showr oom condition, and then r einstall it all. Its like having Business Photos courtesy of Todd Thomas JacksonThese photos show kitchens and bathrooms before and after Stuart-based Premier Tile and Grout cleaned and restored them to showroom condition.

F riday, December 2, 2011 A8 Martin CountyHometown Newsunlikely that he was mistaken. F eeling the above circumstantial evidence uncovered by my detective work was ov erwhelming, I decided to confront the town of North P alm Beach. Through my attorney, I spoke with the vice mayor, who agreed to talk to the chief of police. When I didnt hear back for a while, I was told that the matter was being discussed with the collective bargaining entity for the police department, the PBA. After several weeks, the North P alm Beach town attorney wrote me a letter stating the towns position on my allegations. This is the pertinent part of the letter: W ith respect to the letter Mr. Stewart received from the Department of Highway S afety and Motor Vehicles r equesting that he appear for re-examination, Section 322.126(3), Florida Statutes, states that any report r egarding a licensed drivers mental or physical disability to drive is confidential and exempt from disclosure pursuant to Florida public r ecords law. The Florida Legislature has expressly determined that such r eports shall not be disclosed or used for any purpose other than determining the qualification of a person to operate a motor vehicle on the highways of this state. As such, no civil or criminal action may be brought against any physician, person or agency who r eports a potential disability to the DMV, nor shall any such report be used as evidence in any civil or criminal trial or in any court proceeding. 322.126(3) & (4), F lorida Stat. (2011). See also D uckworth v. State, 923 So. 2d 530 (Fla. 4th DCA 2006). The Florida Legislature has clearly determined that the overriding public interest in ensuring that all licensed drivers possess the r equisite ability to operate a motor vehicle trump any concerns raised by licensed drivers regarding the circumstances surrounding the filing of such a report. I n light of the foregoing, even if the village possessed information regarding a medical report filed with the DMV concerning Mr. S tewart, the village is prohibited from disclosing the information set forth therein. A dditionally, neither your client nor the village can utilize the report as evidence in any criminal or civil proceedings unrelated to Mr. Stewarts qualification to operate a motor vehicle. S hould you have any questions relative to the foregoing, please do not to hesitate to contact me. After reading the above, I think you can appreciate my title to this article. Most people understand that people accused of a crime in America can elect to refuse to answer on the grounds that it might tend to incriminate them. If you feel the same way I do about this, taking the fifth its just another way of saying Im guilty but youll have to prove it without my cooperation. Im betting this police officer has never filed another report under this statute before in the remote chance that he believed in good faith the driver lacked the physical or mental qualifications to drive. It s a shame, arguably disgraceful, that law enforcement in North Palm B each allows its officers to quench their personal agendas by abusing their official position and then hiding behind a statutes confidentially provisions. Im sure the confidentially provision was not made part of the stature by the legislature to allow police officers to file reports in bad faith and with no objective basis. My attorney tells me that, in spite of this statute, I have grounds to sue on the basis that this Florida statute is unconstitutional and that a judge could overturn this part of the law. But I dont want to sue the town of Nor th Palm Beach, the cop who reported me or anybody else. What I do want is for the town and the police officer to do the right thing, which is to sincerely apologize. I would also like the town to take the necessary precautions to see that this never happens again to anybody else driving through the town of North Palm Beach.

We learned that if we do nothing, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation predicts a 29 percent PIP pure premium increase each year. While the pure premium increase directly impacts the insurer, the costs get passed down to consumers through rate hikes, since insurers must raise rates to close the gap created by ra pidly increasing fraud costs. In a time when were working every day to get F loridas economy back on its feet, the last thing we need is fraudsters to cause auto insurance premiums to skyrocket and raise the cost of living in this state, something I have vowed to prevent as governor. After listening to constituents affected by PIP fraud and their solutions to the problem, I announced four pillars that must be addressed to fix PIP: fraud prevention, litigation r eform, utilization and provider reform and accountability. My expectation is that we will provide significant PIP reform this legislative session. F lorida consumers have already paid more than $800 million for PIP fraud ov er the last several years and enough is enough.

The technique is applicable in more than 90 percent of cases, and shaves thousands off expenses. Alternative renovations cost at least $3,000-$4,000 and can take about a week to complete. C ustomers find the change dazzling, and their positive feedback about the company is the primary reason behind Premier Tile and Grouts strong growth in the last y ear. C ustomer referrals and r epeat business drive revenue, and company staffers say they work hard to keep earning positive word of mouth. I t really is about the w ow factor when were done. A lot of people think we can make (a room) look good, but we cant make it look brand new. But theyre blown away when were done, Mr. Jackson said. To help ensure each job attains high standards, Mr. J ackson meets every client and visits each work site. Ev en though extended customer consultations appear to reduce the companys productivity, the payoff is an in-depth understanding of each clients need and an opportunity to fully meet that expectation. I might not make as much money as I could on a job, but when every customer is happy and goes and tells five friends, it serves me better in the long run and also saves thousands in advertising costs, he said. It s a lesson the entrepreneur learned from longtime area businessman J oseph Flynn, whom he credits with helping to shape his corporate strategy. B est advice: deliver a level of service that clients will remember and mention to others, said Mr. F lynn, who has been in business for about 40 years and owns Martin County J anitorial. Thats why Premier Tile and Grout never gives clients long appointment windows. It provides set times for service, rather than several hours on a given day when its workers will deliver service. The idea, Mr. Jackson said, is to never take the customer for granted. Thats how Premier Tile and Grout has really grown, he said. I know a lot of companies get so big that the owner is more concerned with business development. But in my mind, if I satisfy my customers, the business will develop.

Leading the celebration will be Grand Marshall J oe Crankshaw, a local journalist, veteran and historian.

F riday, December 2, 2011 B8 Martin CountyHometown News Mitch Kloorfain /chief photographerMartin County Tiger Mitchell Patterson gets sandwiched between Freedom Whitfield and Charles Ballard of the Fort Pierce Central Cobras during the region 3-7A semi-finals at Calvin Trippett Field at Lawnwood Stadium in Fort Pierce Friday, Nov. 25. The 31-7 Tiger loss eliminated them from post season play.Mistakes made early, often end Martin Countys seasonTREASURE COAST A crowd of more than 1,600 the day after Thankgiving packed Lawnwood Stadium in Fort Pierce ready to see two rivals go at it. U nfortunately, for the fans w earing yellow and blue, it was over before it ever really got started, while fans in purple and gold had something to immediately cheer about. Fr om the opening whistle, a series of costly mistakes would ruin any chance Martin County had of getting by the squad that has been the most impressive in the Treasure Coast all year long. The Fo rt Pierce Central Cobras lived to play another day this season after thrashing Martin C ounty 31-7 in the FHSAA 37A Regional Semifinal matchup held Nov. 25 at C alvin Trippett Field at Lawnwood Stadium. After electing to receive the opening kickoff, Tigers r eturner Jeremey Patterson w ent back to field a Miguel Mor ales kick angled toward the sideline. As Patterson caught the ball, his left foot was out of bounds at the Martin County 1-yard line. On the first play from scrimmage, Cobras lineman Donovan intercepted a pass from Nolan Mullen, setting up the Cobra offense at the T igers 10-yard line. T wo plays later, Marcus Levy, would score from 2 yards out to put the Central on top just 64 seconds into the game. W e cant do what we did coming out of these gates and expect to compete in the second and third rounds against great teams, said Martin C ounty head coach Chuck K enyon after the playoff loss. After forcing a Tigers 3and-out, the Cobras extended their lead when Levy added a second touchdown on a 32yard, fourth-down reception, which, including several missed Tigers tackles, completed a 74-yard drive. That scenario would be r epeated, this time after another Tigers 3-and-out, it would be Jameel Jackson running a slant pattern, catching a pass for Marcus Sigmon and sprinting away from the defense for the 25-yard touchdown reception. The J ackson touchdown completed consecutive 70-plus yard drives for Central. The proverbial nail-in-the coffin for Martin Country occurred on the first play in the second quarter when Freedom Whitfield intercepted a Mullen pass and r eturned it to the house and with just 12 seconds into the second period, the scoreboard read 28-0 Central. I saw three people in front of me, I saw a crease I could get through, and it was green grass from that point on, Whitfield said about his interception. I m just so proud of these kids and the way they performed tonight, especially in the first half, Cobras head coach Josh Shaffer said after the win. F or the second week in a ro w, all three phases of the C entral attack was excellent. The defense was dominant, causing three turnovers and did not allow Martin County to enter Cobra territory until 2:17 left in the first half. The special teams never allowed the Tigers to start with great field position in the first half (average starting point-own 18-yard line). Out of the six Central kickoffs, four went for touchbacks.

VERO BEACH Vero B each High Schools girls v arsity soccer team played the Jensen Beach Falcons on Nov. 22 at Hobart Park. The I ndians won the hardfought game 4-2. The game was paced quickly from the beginning, the defense on each team keeping the ball from going into the goal well into the first half. The Indians defense had a hard time keeping the ball away from their goal, giving Jensen multiple opportunities to score, only to be stopped by goalkeeper, Destiny Kelley. W e came out with a lot of intensity from the get go, said Indians Coach Jose Gibert. Once we engaged we we re in the game. The Indians offensive was put to the test. The Falcons players used their heads to keep the ball away from their goal. Taylor Townsend, a strong header in the game, said overcoming the fear of the ball hitting your face or head wasnt hard. Y ou just go up there and do it, said Townsend. You cant care about anything. I ndian defender Alex Kuh was ready to defend against To wnsend all night. The game was physical. Many players were knocked down tumbling with other players most of the night. I t was very physical, said K uh. I think we did really w ell and we played to our abilities. Its hard and sometimes it brings you down, but youve just got to get back up. The Indians were the first to score with 11:45 left in the first half. B oth teams struggled for ball control, each team trying to win the ball before the other team. The Falcons usually beat the Indians to the ball, but the Indians had better control with it afterward. The key to scoring in this game was to be ahead of the defenders. Just before the half, freshman Alana Hockenhull scored a goal, bringing the Indians to 2-0. I t was 2-0 at the half, and they started out with a lot of shots, said Gibert. We got in there and challenged them. We knew this was going to be well matched and they are very well coached. C oming out of the half, each team played with re newed energy and an already fast-paced game picked up even more. H ockenhull scored another goal minutes into the second half and the Indians seemed to have the game in hand, shortly after scoring another goal to bring the score to 4-0. The Falcons Kelly Crispin scored the first goal against the Indians, who seemed to gain footing by scoring the goal. W ith the score at 4-1, the F alcons defense stopped the I ndians from scoring, allowing only a few attempts on their goal. The last goal of the game was from Falcon Jackie By ers, who was hurt in the first half. With no time on the clock left, the Indians won 4-2. I feel like we did a good job, said Falcons Coach P atty Morris. I dont think the score reflects what happened tonight, but wed r ather lose a good game than win a bad game. M orris did not think this loss was something to feel bad about. W e have to make some improvements, she said B ut this is not a game we have to recover from, we just move on. I am not hanging my head down or stepping backwards. We just need to go forward. The Indians (4-0-1) will have a rematch with Treasure Coast High School Dec. 6 for an away district match. The Falcons (5-1-2) will play S uncoast High School at home on Dec. 7. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 Martin County B9Indians defense holds off FalconsBy Brittany LlorenteF or Hometown NewsOutF rom page B7 Air Conditioning &Heating Commercial &Residential Sales Service Installation Same Day Service No extra charge for 24 Hour Emergency including Nights Weekends HolidaysDont be surprised by a cold front 10 YEARSLic. # CAC058508 Insured772-232-1114 The Ultimate Golf ExperienceA Public Course with a Private Club Feel...FA CILITIES INCLUDE: 18 Hole Championship Golf Course Restaurant with Full Bar Banquet Facilities Stocked Golf Shop Lessons with PGAInstructors 15 Acre Driving Range with All Grass Tees Professional Golf Fittings by Brians Precision GolfRegular 18 Hole Golf Rate $50 Including cart w/G.P.S V isit www.floridaclubgolf.com for Online Specials $4000Before 12:00 pmIncludes Cart with G.P.S.$3000After 12:00 pmIncludes Cart with G.P.S.Good for up to 4 playersExp. on 12/9/11 Good for up to 4 playersExp. on 12/9/11 $2000after 3:00 pmIncludes Cart with G.P.S.Good for up to 4 playersExp. on 12/9/11 Banquet Facilities for All Occasions Exit 101 SR76 1/2 Mile West of I-95 Stuart,Florida772-287-3680Ex. 0 New Tires at Wholesale Prices WE WILL MEET OR BEAT COMPETITORS PRICES!Specials...Specials...

contest matching these two, C entral had all the right answers, while the Tigers didn t have an answer for Levy. In an Oct. 21 meeting at B ob Collins Field, the Tigers w ent 27-0, thanks, in large part, of Levy racking up 281 yards on the ground. In the r egional semifinal, Levy would contribute 155 rushing yards, adding another 61 yards receiving. Sigmon was sharp, completing 10 of 11 passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns. Sigmon is doing a great job in leading the offense and when in doubt, they give it to Levy who is a beast of a running back, Kenyon said of two Central stars. A key part of the Central game plan was the ability to counter Martin Countys defensive pressure by using the screen pass, going to that play four times in the first half. W e knew that they were going to come after us this game, Shaffer said. They did a good job last game confusing our offensive line with blitzes, so we really wanted to establish the screen early and often. S igmons only incompletion served to be his mistake. While rolling out, Sigmon tossed an interception to B oston College-bound ballhawk Justin Simmons in the third quarter. The Simmons interception would setup the only Martin County score, when on the next play, R eshawd Fyne busted up the middle through the Cobras defense for a 50-yard touchdown run. In a game that was already decided, the scariest moment of the contest took placed late in the third. Simmons, while r unning the ball, was tackled hard by several Central players, landing on his neck. S immons could be heard screaming in pain from the sideline immediately after the play ended. He tried to slowly get up, crawling on his hands and knees for a couple of yards before laying face down on the turf as the Martin C ounty coaching and training staff ran on the field to attend to him. The game was delayed for 10 minutes as Simmons, who had feeling in all of his extremities, was taken off on a stretcher to Lawnwood M edical Center. S hortly after the game, Mar tin County athletic director sent the following out in a text message: Simmons is OK. Leaving ER soon. N ext up for the Cobras is the 3-7A Regional Final this Fr iday as Central will travel three hours to Bradenton to face off against Manatee (102), a team that is currently 22nd nationally, in the MaxPr eps Freeman Rankings and 21st nationally, in the MaxPr eps Xcellent 25 poll. Manatee also finished ranked fifth in Class 7A.

Still, while its fun to recall holidays past, its also fun to make new traditions with our Florida families, as one expert described it. In this issue, there is a serious story about coping with the holidays. For many, far from families, perhaps financially challenged, the holidays are not what they once we re. If there has been a loss, this time of year can be very difficult. E xperts from area hospitals and counseling centers have suggestions for making the holiday season a peaceful time and a time of hope. The Nutcracker Ballet is a tradition at this time of year and several of the editions of Forever Y oung feature stories about area productions. At the Riverside Theatre, there is a Nutcracker featuring the music of Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington, for a S wingtime Nutcracker. In Mar tin County, seniors who attend the Council on Agings day center will narrate the story and students from Florida Arts and D ance will dance excerpts from the ballet in an inter-generational By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See SPECIAL, Page 6

Santa has a room at the Inn that children can visit when he is not in residence. Children can see Santas desk covered with letters from children and his empty black boots.Photo courtesy of Cheryl Baker Inn celebrates season in style INDIANTOWN When Baltimore banker S. Davies Warfield came to Indiantown in the 1920s, he had grand plans for the area. He hoped to make Indiantown the southern headquarters for his r ailroad and he built a city around his plans. The centerpiece of his town was the Seminole Inn, and when it opened, he invited his niece, Wallis War field, to attend the gala festivities. She would later move to England and become the Duchess of Windsor. T oday, Jonnie Frewelling is the innkeeper and daughter of the o wner. Christmas is a very important holiday there and Ms. F lewelling talked recently about holiday plans. Each year we have a Dickens Christmas, she said. Threes an old-fashioned, traditional Christmas meal, with a standing rib roast, English peas, fruit salad, Yorkshire pudding and mulled cider. While the meal is Dickensian, the theme for the year varies. One of Ms. Flewellings favorites was Angels Unaware. These are angels you dont know are there, she said. Theres a long tradition in our family of Christmas miracles. At Christmas time, God hears the prayers of children. Sometimes we, as adults, miss whats important. Ms. Flewelling remembered a Christmas after her divorce, when she and her young son were living with her parents. Her son desperately wanted a dog, but Ms. F lewelling felt her parents didnt need a pet as well as the family. On Christmas morning, her son ran outside and came back in to thank them for the dog. A little dog had come to the house. Lady moved in and stayed for a y ear and moved on, Ms. Flewelling said. Sh e just filled a need. It got him through the first year. We were so caught up that we didnt hear what he needed. At the Inn, Christmas is a holy time as well as a holiday. W e have a Nativity and my mother tells the Christmas story, Ms. Flewelling said. S hes 82 and she tells it from memory. The decorating for Christmas starts on Dec. 1. Santa visits every S unday in December and he has a r oom at the Inn that children can visit when hes not in residence. Theyll see letters on his desk and his empty boots. While Christmas is a special time for Ms Flewelling, it is also a difficult one. Her son died 10 years ago. H e was the biggest fan of Christmas, she said. I m finally able to celebrate again without crying. Its a time to reflect and think about the year ahead and try to remember the less fortunate. Ms. Flewelling grew up in Big C yprus in Immokalee in a family that was very poor. W e lived in a room 12 feet by 12 feet with a dirt floor, she said. Christmas has always been about family. Some years there were more gifts and some not many. Its always been a time for each other, and for what you give, not what you get. Tr aditions were important in their household. F or 50 years we went to Aunt N ellies for Christmas Eve, she said. My mom still cooks Christmas dinner for 35-40 of us. Ms. Flewelling never forgets what Christmas is about. I t s a time of remembering Christ was born, she said. That was the real joy. I taught Special Ed and there was always some child desperately in need of Christmas.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Coping with holiday stress takes planning STUART For many people, the holiday season brings to mind family and friends, the aroma of baking, the fun of buying and wrapping presents for the kids. For many in Florida, families are far away, money may be tighter and it doesnt seem wroth it to prepare when its just for one or two. K im Ouellette is an oncology social worker at Martin Memorials H ealth Systems and she sees many people who are sad because things are not the way they used to be at holiday time. Cr eate a new tradition or adjust an old one, she said. If the family is all here, let the torch pass and let the kids host it, she said. We see a lot of people where the grandparents are here and the kids are up north. Schedule a time to phone. Sk ype is a really good thing to do. M any older people are distressed that they dont have the r esources to spend that they once had. Ms. Ouellette said that they should realize they are not alone in feeling a financial pinch. W e re all embarrassed, she said. Were all living in this economy. If you plan to buy gifts, dont wait until the last minute. Lay-away is making a comeback. Set aside $10 a week instead of putting it all at one time. Ms. Ouellette also suggested a S ecret Santa, where family members buy only one gift for a particular person. Remember, too, that if the demands are more than you can meet, its all right to say no. F or people who are alone, Ms O uellette said that keeping busy is very important. I f they live in an active community, they can do something with their Florida family, she said. T ake a small trip if they have the r esources, or go to a movie. I t s important to keep in touch. When we isolate, we open the door and invite depression to come in. It creeps up on y ou and before you know it, youre in a dark place. It s also important to take care of y ourself. When were stressed, we dont care of ourselves, she said. When youre under stress, the immune system is at risk. Get a good nights sleep, exercise, eat right, and use moderation with alcohol. Fo r some, the sense of sadness is heightened by a loss, through death or divorce. I f its your first year without the person, you have to reframe the holiday, she said. It s OK to reminisce and see there is still a good and happy time. Ms. Ouellette stressed the importance of seeking others. Reach out, she said. We have support groups and hospice has free grief counseling. If a person feels that sadness has moved into depression, help is available. T alk to your primary care physician, Ms. Ouelette said. They can make referrals as needed. Understand that its normal to have stress, but get help of it starts to feel like too much. You can be sad. Sometimes you need to feel anger and sadness. It will help in the long run to come out on the other side. The important thing is to have a plan. B e proactive, Ms. Ouellette said. Dont wait for people to come to y ou.

By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor Kim Ouellette Change is good! (usually) Times change, dress changes, Even THE CHANGE has changed. I know some of us (usually the men-folk) yearn for the Old Days when things were simpler (For them!) but I dont think I would have fared very well at all. I cannot picture myself in a woolen bathing suit r ushing home from taking the kids to the beach so I can have a homecooked lunch waiting for my husband when he gets home from the polls while fighting hot flashes During prohibition. F amilies have certainly changed; when I go to my grandsons high school football games I find myself surrounded by my son, his younger children, his beautiful new wife, her children, my ex-daughter-in-law, her new husband, their new daughter and my sons ex-mother-in-law. Each and every one of us is standing, y elling and slapping each other on the back when our team scores. M ost symptoms of THE CHANGE are now treatable to a certain extent, shortening the late night hours spent fanning ourselves with the freezer door considerably. H olidays may be one constant in our lives, but the way we celebrate has certainly come a long way. When my children were young we usually had the big family day at our house. Due in large part to the fact that I was usually absent from the family meetings where location was decided, my husbands family would converge in the morning, cousins usually began running and screaming in all directions just about the time M acys parade began, we would be finishing the last piece of pie (for the moment) just as the game came on, then coffee and more pie during half time. As my family aged and grew with the addition of significant others, the arrival of my grandchildren and new sets of in-laws, we re-invented our celebrations as necessary. I began serving a brunch on the holidays. We all brought something for brunch and my children could spend half the day with us then be free to enjoy turkey and trimmings with the other side of their families. C ontrary to popular opinion, (usually from the other side of the families) I did not arrange things this way to have the pleasure of my grandchildrens company when they were awake and bright in the morning, not tired and cranky later in the afternoon. Nor was it my intention to be the Grammy who loves them the most by filling them with hand/turkey cookies or gingerbread men just to send them to their other grandparents. (But I have to admit the words favoritist Grammy in the world! did spread a special kind of warmth throughout my sleepdeprived soul, as did the nap that I was now able to grab later in the afternoon). B ut still we grew. None of us have homes large enough to accommodate 45 plus people and still have room for all the cousins (second and third generation now) to run and scream, so we once again became harbingers of change. O ur latest change-vention is a huge gathering in a nearby park. We are blessed to live in a place that lives up to the title The Sunshine State, so renting a pavilion at any of the beautiful parks in Brevard works out wonderfully.

8MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Je wish holiday celebrates miracles STUART When Chanukah begins at sundown on Dec. 20, it starts eight days of a holiday thousand of the years in the making. R abbi Jeffrey Goldwasser is the spiritual leader at Temple Beit Ha Yam in Stuart. He spoke recently about the origins and meaning of a holiday also known as The Festival of Lights. Chanukah is a minor holiday, the r abbi said. The original Chanukah was a celebration of the military victory of the Maccabees over the mighty Seleucid Empire. Israel was no longer a sovereign state, and a small army defeated the mighty empire and won independence. The Jews had been forbidden to practice their religion and the Temple in Jerusalem had been desecrated. The Temple was cleansed and prepared to be reconsecrated for Jewish worship. In fact, the word Chanukah means dedication. When the Jews went to light the T emple light, they found a cruse of oil that was only enough to last for one day. It burned for eight. The miracle of the first day is that they lit it at all, Rabbi Goldwasser said. It was a miracle of faith. Even though things are bad, and there is no way that you can get what you want, what you need will be provided. As we look upon the world today, living in difficult times, we need that message of hopefulness. If we act with integrity and faith, doing the right thing, the right outcomes will happen. To commemorate the miracle of the lights, Jews light a nine-branched candlestick known as the menorah. Eight candles stand for each day of Chanukah and the taller one is used to light the others. On each night of Chanukah, an additional candle is lit, until the entire Menorah glows. The menorah is place in front of a window to be visible to all. The idea of the menorah is to make known the miracle, the rabbi said. W e are obliged to send a message out to the world of miraculousness and hopefulness. O ther customs of the holiday include the playing of games with a spinning top called a dreidel. Letters on each side of the dreidel symbolize the Hebrew words, a great miracle happened there. There are many songs that tell the story of the festival and gifts are given, although they are traditionally supposed to be modest. The food most closely associated with Chanukah is potato pancakes, or latkes. The traditional foods are associated with oil and the miracle of the oil, the rabbi said. For Eastern Europe, it was latkes. The Sephardic Jews of Western Europe and the Middle East eat jelly doughnuts. R abbi Goldwasser said that there is another story of Chanukah. When I talk to kids, part of what I emphasize is that the time of year is the darkest and includes the winter solstice, he said. W e celebrate shifting into a time where it is increasingly light, not just literally, but in recognizing the miracles of everyday life and having our eyes open to those miracles. The rabbi stressed that Chanukah is not about spending money on expensive presents. Traditionally, gold coins, known as Chanukah gelt, were given. These days, the coins, wrapped in gold paper, are more likely made of chocolate. I t s about small miracles, he said. I t s about being with family, the miracle of having each other, of being with the community. All it takes is people for small miracles.

Dancers from Florida Arts & Dance will perform excerpts from the full-length ballet and several seniors who attend the Martin County C ouncil on Agings day center will provide narration. W e re very excited, said Lori H ickey, the new artistic and executive director for Florida Arts & Dance. W e re dancing for members of the C ouncil on Agings Kane Center and their caregivers as a Christmas holiday celebration. The special program, which is not open to the public, is the result of several discussions between the two organizations. W e wanted to start an intergenerational collaboration with the Kane C enter, Ms. Hickey said. There will be three participants from the center. There will be an introduction, to educate the audience about the ballets history, an introduction to the first act and one to the second. The culmination will be a question-and-answer period with the dancer and the seniors. The seniors can ask the dancers questions and the dancers can ask the seniors about their interests. Thirty dancers will perform during the program, but the show date will not be the first time the students will be at the Center. W e are going to have a couple of exercises at the Kane Center, Ms. H ickey said. They will help decorate and meet one another. We take for granted that the youngsters have grandparents, but a lot of the young dancers dont have grandparents in the area. Its best to have activities prior to the Nutcracker to be familiar and comfortable.

12MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOUNG Christmas pig roast about family as much as food For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back ov er the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980s when my younger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small rural outpost about five miles west of the St. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge O cala National Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around Central F lorida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig r oast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had r aised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. First, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others w ent into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Lindas w ell-fortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) reached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. Having regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of A Christmas Car ol. As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this r ound. Now, for a big time pig roast like this to be successful the animal must be turned regularly. That task required four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin R andy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we were all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we we re able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasnt burned seemed to be cooked pretty well. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog had turned out OK, considering the cooks lapse in sobriety and hence, attention. No one but me seemed to mind that there was no sauce. Right at the top of the hill on Lindas property grew a Florida cedar tree ov er 30 feet tall. Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar. When it was completely dark we plugged it in amid oohs and aahs. Later we were told it could be seen for miles. Of course, the women began to sing Christmas songs and the hungover men tried to join in as well as they could. It was certainly a Christmas to r emember. Sa dly, my sister Linda, who was a true baby boomer (born in 1947), passed away in 2003. But memories like these of that crazy pig roast keep her in our hearts especially during the holidays. These days family is still so important this time of year. My wife Lana and I center our holidays around our daughter Shaylas beautiful 8-yearold, our granddaughter Delayna. We would like to wish a merry Christmas to you all.Please enjoy each other while you can.LAND LINESD AN SMITH dren. The goal is to give away 100 bicycles and hundreds of toys.

One of the first resources that is the most important and easiest to find, is the federal census.The U.S. government has conducted a household census in every state, every 10 years since 1790. The census records from 17901930 can be searched by the public except for 1890, which was destroyed by fire. They are arranged by states and then by counties, and then in, many cases by towns or districts. Some states also took their own census in odd years.. The 1850-1880 census records include a separate mortality census listing everyone who had died in the previous year. There are also slave census records for 1850 and 1860. M any researchers ignore these r ecords completely, or only look at one or two records for their family, assuming they have learned all the facts they need. Each family should be followed all the way back through the census every 10 years, picking up children, parents, brothers and sisters, in-laws and any other relatives that show up in the household or neighborhood. Fr om 1790-1840, the census only named the head of the household, and gave the number of people living in the house. From 1850 forward, each member of the household was named, with their sex, age, and place of birth. Each census became more complex, asking more questions, adding r elationships, occupations, parents places of birth, number of years married, number of children given birth to, and other pertinent clues. S tarting with the 1930 census, and working backward, you should look at your family, taking down all the information given and looking at the neighboring families. Often, other family members are living nearby, and these need to be noted, also. If there are other families with the same surname, they are possibly parents, brothers, uncles and cousins. Johns father may be living next door to him, and in his household is grandma or grandpa. Viola!! You have three generations laid out on one or two pages. As you work your way through each census, you will find differences in the spellings of names, family members will come and go, and the family will move around the country. Each census taker had his own style. Some used only initials, some used only a first name regardless of which name is preferred. Sometimes the correct name is used, the next time it will be a nickname. Ages also will change from census to census. Use this information as a guide and not as absolute fact. The first order of business is census work. I nformation gathered here will make the rest of your research much easier.
