MARTIN COUNTY P ete Peterson, a Martin C ounty deputy, considers K-9 Samson, a German shepherd, practically a member of his family, he said last week. And he wants any member of his family to remain safe. D eputy Peterson is pleased a local animal hospital donated a bulletproof vest that will be available for Samson, a member of the Martin C ounty Sheriffs Offices K9 unit, to use, he said. Animal Care Extraordinaire made the donation after veterinarians heard other animal doctors in the state had donated vests, said Ronald Ball, a veterinarian. S ome other veterinarians north of here mentioned they had done it, he said. Dr Ball said over the y ears, he treated some of the members of the Martin C ounty Sheriffs Office K-9 unit and he and Wayne D iamond, also a veterinarian, wanted to help provide the dogs with extra protection. The vests cost around $700, he said. D eputy Peterson said hes worked with K-9 Samson for the past four years and that the dog lives at his home when off-duty. W earing a bulletproof vest is a new thing for K-9 Sa mson, Deputy Peterson said. H e was a little uncomfortable at first, Deputy P eterson said. B ut as it turned out, the dog was able to move quicker with the vest on than Deputy Peterson expected. He described the vest as being like a tracking harness, but thicker and heavier. Dur ing the past four ye ars, K-9 Samson has been involved in pursuing suspects, but fortunately, was never shot, Deputy P eterson said. Se veral years ago, K-9 S amson helped catch some robbers of a convenience store, he said. Although K-9 Samson has not needed the vest y et, Martin County Sheriff R obert Crowder said in a press release the potentialSenator to hold town meeting on redistrictingMARTIN COUNTY Sen. Joe N egron, R-Stuart, will lead a Dec. 12 town meeting to discuss the senates proposed changes to congressional and legislative district boundary lines. Ev ery 10 years, the state House and S enate redraw Floridas political map. The latest exercise would shift w estern Martin and St. Lucie counties outside Sen. Negrons constituency, D istrict 28. V oters west of I nterstate-95 would belong to District 17, now represented by S en. J.D. Alexander, R -Lake Wales, who is serving his final term. U nder the state S enate Committee on Reapportionments proposal, S en. Negrons district would expand to include a portion of northern St, Lucie C ounty and part of I ndian River County east of Interstate-95. I want to hear from citizens on their opinions on how these maps should be drawn, what communities of interest go together and how can the Treasure C oast best be represented in Tallahassee and the nations capital, S en. Negron said.

And theres no shortage of them on the Treasure Coast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Extensive damage A Martin County man, in addition to facing a criminal charge of driving under the influence, may not be too popular in one Stuart neighborhood, and thats putting it mildly. The mans SUV went off the road and over a culvert causing about $250 worth of damage.

Hospital changes its name MARTIN COUNTY To r eflect the enhanced scope of services it now provides to Treasure Coast residents, Mar tin Memorial Health S ystems is changing its name to Martin Health System. What began as a small hospital more than 70 years ago has transformed into a fully integrated health system that provides a vast spectrum of care for the r egion, said Miguel Coty, vice president and chief marketing communications officer for Martin Health S ystem. T oday, we not only provide exceptional care in our two hospitals, we offer preventive and primary care throughout Martin and St. L ucie counties. At the same time, we are collaborating on clinical research that will define how we deliver care tomorrow. The new name demonstrates the continuum of care we provide. Mar tin Health System began in 1939 as Martin C ounty Hospital, a 23-bed facility located in Stuart that was created by local residents who saw the need for health-care services. The name was eventually changed to Martin Memorial Hospital and as the community grew, so did Martin M emorial. In 1992, Martin Memorial Ho spital South opened in south Stuart, and the organization was renamed Martin M emorial Health Systems. T oday, Martin Health System features two hospitals, with a third opening in the we st Port St. Lucie development of Tradition in 2014, as w ell as award-winning centers for cancer and heart care, physician offices, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation, health and fitness and more.

Expires 12/31/11 y ear, said Russ Reaver, president of the Education F oundation. The bottom line is everything we do at the foundation is to help the children of Martin County. One of the winners, Sarah Lopez of SeaWind Elementary School in Hobe Sound, wanted a reading tool to appeal to students inclination to electronics, over hardcopy books. H er request won the school a $1,500 grant to purchase Kindles, a brand of electronic book readers. I m an old bricks-andmortar guy, but in todays day and age, the children are into the technology side of it, Mr. Reaver said. H obe Sound Elementary also wanted Kindles, and got $1,000 to purchase the readers for its library. At Challenger School the award will go toward purchasing a kiln for art projects. The classroom enrichment grants ranged from about $500 to $1,500, and var ied based on the scope of the project and number of students whod benefit. I m a parent of children who came through the Martin County system, and I didnt realize how much of a need there was until I got in there, Mr. Reaver said. O ther beneficiaries included: Pinewood Elementary, Anderson Middle, Po rt S alerno Elementary, M urray Middle, Palm City Elementary, Hidden Oaks M iddle, Bessey Creek Elementary, Indiantown Middle, South Fork High, Jensen B each High, Felix A. W illiams Elementary, Jensen B each Elementary and JD Par ker School of Science, M ath & Technology. Cr aig Anderson, coordinator of marketing for the parks and recreation department. The idea is, get your season pass now while the prices are really good. The department started sales, beginning with county staff, during the Thanksgiving weekend in a trial meant to test the distribution and online ordering system. In the first two weeks, it got a steady stream of about 50 orders. P eople are liking the idea, said Mr. Anderson, who added that early conservative projections anticipate 75,000 visitors to the park in its first season. W e have higher hopes, and thats just on the recreation side, he said. On the competitive side, the next closest facility that can handle this type of competition is in Orlando, so we anticipate we will attract some pretty significant swim meets. H osting athletic events will boost the local economy, bringing business to area r estaurants and hotels, park administrators said. While the park is still under construction, county staff is working on online marketing campaigns that include the use of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. They also plan to send out bulk emails and visit local community events during the holidays to promote the park. S ailfish Splash Waterparks attractions will include a lazy river, two four-story water slides, an interactive water playground, and pools for swimming and diving meets, as well as water polo competitions. On its premises will be a 7,000-square-foot support center with a caf and concession stand with indoor seating, meeting rooms and managers office. W e are getting out of the starting blocks right now with the sale of season passes, Mr. Anderson said.

S he was not only knocked off her scooter by a car, but she was also arrested. The Port St. Lucie woman, who suffered minor injuries, told police a vehicle backed up into her scooter, causing her to fall off of it. The driver of the vehicle who hit her saw her throw a cigarette box into the grass and went over to check on what she threw. He found a wooden container. An officer discovered a wooden container in the cigarette box contained a metal-cigarette type device with marijuana packed on one end of it. The woman told an officer that she was taking the marijuana with her on a fishing trip. I nstead of going fishing, she ended up getting treated at an emergency room and then heading toward the St. L ucie County jail where she was charged with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana, tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Y ou have two other streets to use that would completely r esolve the issue. Just flip the plan over and use the street on the north side. I really do not believe anyone ever looks at a city plan for anything anymore. Why doesnt the press put out a drawing of the proposeddesign for the public? It seems the city doesn t want to share too much information anymore.Missing a tax paymentIf you miss paying an installment on your income tax, the IRS knows instantly and will be after you. If you enter this country illegally, the border patrol doesnt have a clue. S ome estimates are that there are 12 million illegals here but no one really knows.

Dont allow this injustice toruin a good mans efforts to bring honesty and integrity back to the White House.In response to Counties should helpWhen did local counties state they, refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness? Whether they did or did not say this doesnt matter though. In your opinion, how is a county (or city) of any kind going to create work as you put it? B efore work is created, there must be some sort of project (job) at hand. Depending on how big this project is, it will obviously require people to run the project. These people will then, and only then, be considered workers of the project, therefore, work has been created. However, these people will have to go through the normal hiring process to be accepted for the work just like any other job. If and only if they meet the qualifications for the job and pass the screening, will they be considered for the job. As a lot of people already know from looking for jobs everywhere, a lot of jobs require at least a year or more of experience before even getting considered for the job. Ev en if you just got out of college with your A/C (or mechanic, electrical, etc.) certs, you just spent a lot of money and time on, no experience equals no job. If they cannot find people for the job, the job will get contracted out to the lowest bid of a company who has the experienced workers for the job. This applies to the counties and cities, as well. Instead of going through the whole hiring and training process, they place a bid on the job and give the job to the company with the lowest bid. As for the hard for both counties to create work part, see the above answer for that. As far as the affordable housing part, correct me if Im wrong, but I believe not too long ago the county (and city) we re purchasing foreclosed houses, fixing them up and r eselling them to low-income families with a very low interest mortgage. With that said, they have, in a sense, created affordable housing. Did this eliminate homelessness? Im sure it has to an extent. Y ou are correct, there are people out of work or about to lose their jobs but saying they are going to be put on the street and become homeless is a bit drastic, although it is possible and may happen eventually. I have a friend who has been out of work (laid off, like a lot have during that time) for over three years who had tried to make ends meet by cutting lawns until he finally got hired as a sub-contractor (with no benefits) for an airplane manufacturing plant in Stuart, which had been bought out by a larger company a few years ago. He was doing great until this larger company decided to r estructure (read: operate less expensively) a section of the warehouse of which my friend has been working in for over a y ear and my family member who has been working in for more than 35 years and have another company (read: subcontractor) take over that section. Now, they both have to reapply for the same position they already had and, if all goes well, get rehired! Might not sound so bad to you, but my family members pay will now be cut down to more than half! How is he expected to still pay his mortgage, utilities and other bills? Does anyone who has been working so hard for over 35 years, who isnt even a boss making the big bucks, deserve that treatment? Of course not but thats what these big corporations do. They take over the small companies, merge, lay off the workers who have been there for over 20 years (well-experienced) with great benefits and a pension (but cant retire because they are still too young), and bring in new faces who get paid less, get barely any benefits and need to be trained. M aybe, instead of companies merging and buying out other companies all over the place, they should expand separately, keeping the current workers and hiring new workers to keep the companies afloat. But that will be just too much work! Sounds kind of ironic, dont ya think? Who are these same people you refer to? The people who are out of work or about to lose their jobs or the county? You then say they look the other way to not solve the problem? Is this the people or county? If you mean the people or county or both, how do you think they can solve this problem you speak of? M aybe before posting these rant questions (problems), y ou should think if they have possible answers (solutions). B ut what does a 30-year-old man like me know who, with a Got something to say?

Since I took office almost a year ago, a few core missions and values drive my decisions as your chief financial officer. You deserve a government that protects your hardearned dollars and that is why my key initiatives continue to focus on transparency and accountability, finance and economy, fraud and consumer protection. W ith the next legislative session beginning in J anuary, my 2012 legislative agenda will focus on four core themes that support these initiatives: transparency in contracts and government spending, protecting consumers, fighting fraud and reducing r egulatory burdens on F loridas businesses. H onoring my commitment to government transparency, several of my proposed reforms are aimed at strengthening accountability in state contracting. This effort includes expanded powers to monitor state agency procurements for compliance, as well as authority to review and approve or reject state contracts prior to execution. To ensure that tax dollars are being spent wisely, my aim is to increase competition in the state bidding process. R ecent news reports have highlighted increasing trends in identity theft in Florida. As a consumer protection measure, I will work to close a loophole that allows certain groups to obtain Social Security information from the D epartment of Financial Ser vices Bureau of U nclaimed Property. In an effort to curb the increase of PIP fraud and give Floridians the relief they deserve on their auto insurance rates, my appointed insurance consumer advocate convened a working group to gather and develop ideas to address fraud and other potential alternatives to F loridas current no-fault system which will be presented to the legislature. To address a new workers compensation fraud scheme that is putting pressure on rates and crippling the business community, I called for a work group to make recommendations for combating workers compensation premium fraud. As I host business r oundtables across the state, a top concern has been the burdensome r egulations that stifle business growth. I am asking the legislature to r epeal or rework laws that do not add value to F loridas consumers or businesses, starting with some I have identified in my own agency. Fur ther, Florida must streamline its information technology services, and I am pursuing a modern IT structure to accomplish this goal. In this challenging economic climate, we have a deep responsibility to create conditions that will bring down costs for Floridas families and businesses. Im confident the legislature is equally committed to fostering economic success and r educing financial burdens on Floridas businesses and families, and I look forward to working with them toward these important goals.

S tuart Urgent Care and F amily Practice provides treatment to patients with non-life-threatening emergencies at about 75 percent less than emergency rooms. W e fill the gap between the ER and private practice, and are basically a little of both, said J. Michael Adelberg, president of Stuart Ur gent Care, a subsidiary of Tr easure Coast Medical Associates. W e re basically a much more affordable provider of several of the same services, he said. If youre dying, then go to the ER. But for pains, strains, colds, we can basically do just about anything else. Theres a lot less wait than in the ER at a fraction of the cost. Doctors say patients with less-severe illness have longer waits in emergency r ooms, as staff attends to the most critical cases first. They say about 75 percent of all ER patients should ideally seek care in another setting, and thats why urgent care clinics emerged to provide high-quality and cheaper services. W ith physicians and nurse practitioners on call, the clinic also has a full complement of medical assistants and other staff. C onsidering how expensive the ER is, this is the future. Were just much more convenient, Dr. A delberg said. Urgent care is booming. With all of the changes in health care, urgent care is on the forefront of where health care is going in the future. A lot of people associate walk-in clinics with lowincome patients and poor quality of care. But thats not the case. Weve got top doctors, and our level of treatment is top tier, added Dr. Adelberg, a board-certified emergency physician. The practice accepts most insurance plans, and copays are typically around $20. I nsurance companies love us because we save them a lot of money compared to when their customers go to an ER, Dr. A delberg said. U ninsured patients, too, are finding relief in the clinics lower rates. Par t-time residents, who typically cant afford weeklong waiting periods for a new-patient appointment with a private practitioner, also enjoy the convenience of the walk-in clinics ease of visit. Whats good is that you can just walk into our office any day that were open and be seen by the doctor, Dr. A delberg said. His company also provides occupational medicine services to local businesses. It does pre-employment physicals, drug testing, Department of Tr ansportation physicals, injury treatment, including workers compensation and other services. S tuart Urgent Care also staffs and runs the city of Po rt S t. Lucies staff clinic. The company also specializes in providing pre-op surgery clearances that save patients and physicians weeks of waiting and visits to multiple specialists. It performs same-day, inhouse evaluations for plastic surgery centers, orthopedic centers and others, eliminating the need for separate trips to labs and other providers. That can take quite a bit of time and running around, and thats not what someones whos going into surgery wants to be doing at that time, Dr. Adelberg said. The practices multiple services also includes providing sports physicals at competitive prices for students. It is also licensed to treat patients addicted to opiates. W ith all we do, we have a definite advantage, Dr. A delberg said. S tuart Urgent Care and F amily Practice is located at 1607 N.W.Federal Highway, about 1 mile north of the R oosevelt Bridge.For more information,call (772) 6928082.Urgent care clinic fills gap between emergency room, private practiceBusinessBy Samantha Josephsjoseph@hometownnewsol.com J.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Ste wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or e-mail earls@earlstewarttoyota.co m. 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.Alocal attorney emailed me yesterday morning, asking me to send him the various articles Id written on the infamous dealer fee. He is trying a case in Akron, Ohio, and wanted to research this issue. Ive written so many articles over the years that I sent him seven and also my blog address, www.EarlS tewartOnCars.com, so that he could read all of them if he chose. Later that afternoon, I r eceived a call from a young couple in Fort Lauderdale who had just discovered they had paid $1,248 in dealer fees after they bought a new Toyota and drove it home. They wanted to know what they could do about it. They asked if they had any legal recourse. They had not r esponded to an advertisement on a specific car, which is the case with most buyers, so they had no legal r ecourse. They had recently moved to Florida from C alifornia (where they do have a good dealer fee law) and were amazed how F lorida had such a weak law and that even that was not r egulated. These two occurrences made me realize that I cant be quiet on this subject just because things have gotten better in my local market. The number of dealers in my market charging the dealer fee has abated by four: Royal Palm Toyota in the Wellington area, Palm B each Toyota in West Palm B each, Treasure Coast Toy ota in Stuart and Delray Toy ota all eliminated their dealer fees. I call this the domino effect. Why only Toyota dealers? Thats because of the economic impact that my dealership, which does not charge a dealer fee, has had on each of them. Ive grown from the second smallest Toy ota dealership in Palm B each, Martin and St. Lucie counties to No. 1, by far. My dealership is in Lake Park, which has a population of only 9,000. In fact I advertise being in North Palm B each (on the border with Lake Park) because most people dont know where Lake Park is. The only way I was able to grow Earl S tewart Toyota to No. 1 was to sell into the other Toyota dealers markets. The 21st century consumer is far more intelligent and discriminating than most dealers give them credit for. If you arm the consumer with information, they usually make the right buying decision. Ive done a good job of arming the Toyota buyers in my market with that information, but I cant quit now. The word must be spread throughout Florida and the other states in the U.S. that still have ineffective consumer laws and r egulation. This blog is read on the Internet all over the world. National news stories have been written and talked about my battle against the dealer fee. Its been reported on CNN, Fox, ABC, the Wall Street Journal, N ew York Times, USA Today and many other national media. The reason the dealer fee is such a bad thing lies in one undisputable and fundamental right of the consumer. That is the right to be told the true and full price of any product or service before committing to purchase it. I recently bought a S amsung refrigerator from Lowes. I researched it in C onsumer Reports and it was the No. 1 ranked sideby -side refrigerator. Consumer Reports also indicated what I could expect to pay for this model. I expected to and did, in fact, but for slightly less than Consumer Report suggested and Lowes advertised. Of course, I did have to add sales tax, but even the delivery and installation were both included in the advertised price. If I had bought a car in Florida, the chances are about 99 percent there would be a surprise charge anywhere between $500 and $2,500 (or maybe higher). Ou r Florida law on this subject restricts the dealer to not advertising a price that does not include the dealer fee. F irst of all, the law is not enforced at all. On any given day, I can show you many examples of car dealers who simply ignore this law. Some totally ignore it, some simply note in the fine print that the price quote in the large print is plus a dealer fee and do state the amount. Some dont even state the amount. Many display a small innocuous number by the price, such as STK#123B. This means there is only one car advertised at this price. STK# stands for stock number. Your chances of buying this one car when y ou arrive are slim and none. What you can buy is another stock number car, which may be exactly the same, but, because it wasnt the specific advertised car, the dealer can legally add any amount to the price that he calls his dealer fee. F lorida law calls for no cap to the amount of a dealer fee its left up to the dealers gall and imagination. Of course the name dealer fee is just the most common one. There are dozens of different names because F lorida law also does not specify one. This would make it too easy for the consumer. Dealer prep, doc fee, notary fee, pre-delivery fee and administrative fee are just a few. Sometimes the dealers will have two or three dealer fees. A popular one now is to mark up the electronic filing fee. This costs the dealer $12 and they can mark that up as much they want to. The law says this should be disclosed because it is considered a dealer fee, but many just ignore that. The legal disclosure on the buyers order should be: T his charge represents costs and profits to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles and preparing documents r elated to the sale. What happens most of the time to customers is they dont have a chance to learn about the dealer fee until they get into the F&I office also known as the finance office or business office. This is when the dealer tries to make another profit by selling you products such as warranties and marking up the banks interest rate. Let me be clear, a fair profit is a good thing and y ou should consider buying warranties or letting the dealer sell you a warranty if he is competitive in his pricing. But what else happens in the F&I office is that you are confronted by a large number of documents with lots of fine print that y ou must sign. On one of these, if youre lucky, you will finally learn of the marked up electronic filing fee, doc fee, dealer prep fee or whatever else the dealer decides to call it and how much he decides to charge y ou. As often as not, you will believe these fees are F riday, December 9, 2011 A8 Martin CountyHometown News We Service &Repair All Foreign &Domestic Vehicles1410 SE OCEAN BLVD.

legitimate federal, state or local taxes or fees. You may not even notice them at all until you get home when its too late. Or you may believe that you have to pay these fees and everybody charges them so whats the harm? H elp me spread the word. J ust say no to the dealer fee! Always get a competitive out-the-door price and shop and compare. If the dealer insists on adding a dealer fee, just be sure its included in the out-thedoor price and compare it with at least two other dealers prices.

The Boy Scouts of America Gulf Stream Council completed its annual Scouting for Food mission on Nov. 12 and with the hard work of hundreds of Boy Scouts, C ub Scouts and ROTC cadets, collected 16,490 pounds of food for the Martin Volunteers White Doves H oliday Project. The families who are r eferred to the White Doves H oliday Project are very grateful for the generosity of all the Martin County residents who provide both food and toys to help those in need of assistance during the holidays, said Carlene S tangle, volunteer coordinator of Martin Volunteers. Last year we were able to serve 1,097 families with 2,514 children and we anticipate an even greater need this year. All food collected during the Scouting for Food drive will be sorted and packed into grocery bags by volunteers, then distributed through the White Doves H oliday Project. The White Doves Holiday Pr oject was created to help struggling families during the holidays by proving toys for their children and the staples for a holiday meal. White Doves is a project of U nited Way of Martin Countys Martin Volunteers Program. F or more information,call (772) 220-4472 or email cstangle@martinvolunteers.org.

One thing I have noticed from this global warming is that many courses in south F lorida no longer over-seed for the winter season. You have to travel a little north to get those lush rye greens and tees. For tunately for me, our newspapers circulation covers courses well north of my So-Fla home. This past week I traveled a short hop and a skip up the interstate to Viera, home of Dur an Golf Club. Here I was met by an extremely friendly and helpful staff. I was almost certain the holiday season had something to do with it, but I was assured by the locals that this is always the case here. The first thing that jumped out at me was the beautiful lush green of the place. I had forgotten how great the winter rye makes everything look. Ball marks on over-seeded greens seem to heal more quickly and putts roll very smoothly on them. The tees provide you plenty of places to stick that peg in the ground without having to look for that last bit of actual turf. I was in heaven. Dur an Golf Club, completed in 2005, is easily accessible from I-95 in V iera, just north of Melbourne. The course features five sets of tees, with the longest playing to 7,151 yards. A very stern test considering how much wind blows through the fairways. For the less accomplished players, one can easily find a set of tees to match his or her skill or mood for the day. The club also has a full dining room, with a fantastic menu complete with early bird specials, a Sunday jazz brunch and more. The pro shop is filled with the latest fashions and gear, including a great selection of golf balls, gloves and caps. Also on property is the Dur an Academy of Golf, a comprehensive instructional and coaching program dedicated to golfers that are passionate about getting the most out of their game. The full-time staff of PGA instructors offer one-onone individual lessons and group sessions to clinics, multi-day golf schools, and high tech video swing analysis. Dur an also offers adult and junior activities, leagues and more. The club truly serves as part of the community. The name Duran comes from the land itself, not the early s English pop band. Owned by the Duda family for five generations, the r elatively flat prairie was used as a cattle ranch and sod farm. The name is a combination of Du from D uda and ran from ranch. The course was designed by Lewis Chip Powell. His keen eye for manipulating an areas natural weather patterns and wind tendencies made him a logical choice to incorporate design features that considered the wide-open spaces found here, along with the var ying coastal winds of the east coast of Florida. The combination resulted in holes that play with as much as a five-club difference from day to day. To build a golf course on a piece of property this flat, and void of all but one tree at the start, requires moving and shaping more than a million cubic yards of earth. The result is a course with links characteristics, including rolling terrain, mounded greens and 15 ponds. The use of native grasses, and the importation of a several thousand oak and cypress trees and native palms give the course character. The course is still young, and still maturing. The green complexes continue to improve and benefit from the growth that years of care bring. The trees on the course are young, but have begun to fill out and provide definition. The course starts you off on the right foot, a pleasant par-5 with no surprises. I began my day with a rare birdie. The third is home to the only tree standing when construction began. The lone palm stands guard on a small peninsula that jets out into the lake and warns golfers of the danger lurking behind. On your way around the course you are greeted with a pleasurable playing experience. Choosing the proper set of tees gives one just enough challenge. I used most of the clubs in my bag and quickly figured out that the wind needed to be taken into account on every shot. My final tally was better than I expected. W inter rates at Duran are very competitive, with F lorida residents enjoying a nice discount. The course is located at 7032 Stadium Par kway, Viera, FL 32940.

Beautiful sun, big blue sky and the wind will not stop, it just keeps blowing. That wind weapon is still keeping anglers on the east side of the river. Su rf anglers are waiting and offshore tied to the dock. Pirates Cove sail fish tournament was held this w eekend and with 6-foot and 7-foot seas, it was not for the faint of heart. Big waves, big boats, lots of bait and plenty of sails; 374 were r eleased and I am glad I was not in this tournament. Ye s, the fish are here we just have to get to them, S panish macs a plenty, one cast, one fish in their favored king fish hole, just south of the St Lucie Inlet. Dolphins were pesky early in the week, eating all the baits starting in 80 feet with a mix of sails and kings to keep busy.Then the wind, steady out of the east, kept the average anglers tied to the dock.Lets keep our fingers crossed for this w eek. Su rf saw plenty of blues, macs and jacks casting spoons early in the day, but now it is all white water. This week it will lie down and it will get back to normal. Spoons and cut bait early, then by later morning it will be pompano on sand fleas and clams; should even find some whiting in the mix if the weather man gets it right. River anglers trout season is closed so that means they are everywhere and all over the slot. No, the season is closed, put them back. R ed fish have gotten under control, still plenty of them just not as pesky as they were. Anglers found plenty in Middle Cove, Blind Cr eek, east end of the causeways and across the S ail Fish Flats, favored baits we re jigs and small spoons. P ompano made a bit of a showing at the bridges a few across the Sail Fish Flats, this should be the week. S nook season is winding down, Dec. 15 it closes until Feb. 1. Good bite going in the dark hours, pick a bridge and watch that slot. All and all we have had a good bite going in spite of the wind, blues, macs, lacks, ladys and plenty of drum, sheephead and a few I left out. Now if we can turn off the wind weapon. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

MARTIN COUNTY P ete Peterson, a Martin C ounty deputy, considers K-9 Samson, a German shepherd, practically a member of his family, he said last week. And he wants any member of his family to remain safe. D eputy Peterson is pleased a local animal hospital donated a bulletproof vest that will be available for Samson, a member of the Martin C ounty Sheriff's Office's K9 unit, to use, he said. Animal Care Extraordinaire made the donation after veterinarians heard other animal doctors in the state had donated vests, said Ronald Ball, a veterinarian. "S ome other veterinarians north of here mentioned they had done it," he said. Dr Ball said over the y ears, he treated some of the members of the Martin C ounty Sheriff's Office K-9 unit and he and Wayne D iamond, also a veterinarian, wanted to help provide the dogs with extra protection. The vests cost around $700, he said. D eputy Peterson said he's worked with K-9 Samson for the past four years and that the dog lives at his home when off-duty. W earing a bulletproof vest is a new thing for K-9 Sa mson, Deputy Peterson said. "H e was a little uncomfortable at first," Deputy P eterson said. B ut as it turned out, the dog was able to move quicker with the vest on than Deputy Peterson expected. He described the vest as being "like a tracking harness, but thicker and heavier." Du r ing the past four ye ars, K-9 Samson has been involved in pursuing suspects, but fortunately, was never shot, Deputy P eterson said. Se veral years ago, K-9 S amson helped catch some robbers of a convenience store, he said. Although K-9 Samson has not needed the vest y et, Martin County Sheriff R obert Crowder said in a press release the potentialSenator to hold town meeting on redistrictingMARTIN COUNTY Sen. Joe N egron, R-Stuart, will lead a Dec. 12 town meeting to discuss the senate's proposed changes to congressional and legislative district boundary lines. Ev ery 10 years, the state House and S enate redraw Florida's political map. The latest exercise would shift w estern Martin and St. Lucie counties outside Sen. Negron's constituency, D istrict 28. V oters west of I nterstate-95 would belong to District 17, now represented by S en. J.D. Alexander, R -Lake Wales, who is serving his final term. U nder the state S enate Committee on Reapportionment's proposal, S en. Negron's district would expand to include a portion of northern St, Lucie C ounty and part of I ndian River County east of Interstate-95.

And there's no shortage of them on the Treasure Coast. This column highlights cases that often leave observers shaking their heads. Extensive damage A Martin County man, in addition to facing a criminal charge of driving under the influence, may not be too popular in one Stuart neighborhood, and that's putting it mildly. The man's SUV went off the road and over a culvert causing about $250 worth of damage. Then the vehicle traveled through the lawn of that r esidence, into another and hit a large oak tree, uprooting it.

Hospital changes its name MARTIN COUNTY To r eflect the enhanced scope of services it now provides to Treasure Coast residents, Ma r tin Memorial Health S ystems is changing its name to Martin Health System. What began as a small hospital more than 70 years ago has transformed into a fully integrated health system that provides a vast spectrum of care for the r egion," said Miguel Coty, vice president and chief marketing communications officer for Martin Health S ystem. "T oday, we not only provide exceptional care in our two hospitals, we offer preventive and primary care throughout Martin and St. L ucie counties. At the same time, we are collaborating on clinical research that will define how we deliver care tomorrow. The new name demonstrates the continuum of care we provide." Ma r tin Health System began in 1939 as Martin C ounty Hospital, a 23-bed facility located in Stuart that was created by local residents who saw the need for health-care services. The name was eventually changed to Martin Memorial Hospital and as the community grew, so did Martin M emorial. In 1992, Martin Memorial Ho spital South opened in south Stuart, and the organization was renamed Martin M emorial Health Systems. T oday, Martin Health System features two hospitals, with a third opening in the we st Port St. Lucie development of Tradition in 2014, as w ell as award-winning centers for cancer and heart care, physician offices, diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation, health and fitness and more.

One of the winners, Sarah Lopez of SeaWind Elementary School in Hobe Sound, wanted a reading tool to appeal to students' inclination to electronics, over hardcopy books. H er request won the school a $1,500 grant to purchase Kindles, a brand of electronic book readers. "I 'm an old bricks-andmortar guy, but in today's day and age, the children are into the technology side of it," Mr. Reaver said. H obe Sound Elementary also wanted Kindles, and got $1,000 to purchase the readers for its library. At Challenger School the award will go toward purchasing a kiln for art projects. The classroom enrichment grants ranged from about $500 to $1,500, and va r ied based on the scope of the project and number of students who'd benefit. "I 'm a parent of children who came through the Martin County system, and I didn't realize how much of a need there was until I got in there," Mr. Reaver said. O ther beneficiaries included: Pinewood Elementary, Anderson Middle, Po rt S alerno Elementary, M urray Middle, Palm City Elementary, Hidden Oaks M iddle, Bessey Creek Elementary, Indiantown Middle, South Fork High, Jensen B each High, Felix A. W illiams Elementary, Jensen B each Elementary and JD Pa r ker School of Science, M ath & Technology. Cr aig Anderson, coordinator of marketing for the parks and recreation department. The idea is, get your season pass now while the prices are really good." The department started sales, beginning with county staff, during the Thanksgiving weekend in a trial meant to test the distribution and online ordering system. In the first two weeks, it got a steady stream of about 50 orders. "P eople are liking the idea," said Mr. Anderson, who added that early conservative projections anticipate 75,000 visitors to the park in its first season. "W e have higher hopes, and that's just on the recreation side," he said. "On the competitive side, the next closest facility that can handle this type of competition is in Orlando, so we anticipate we will attract some pretty significant swim meets." H osting athletic events will boost the local economy, bringing business to area r estaurants and hotels, park administrators said. While the park is still under construction, county staff is working on online marketing campaigns that include the use of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. They also plan to send out bulk emails and visit local community events during the holidays to promote the park. S ailfish Splash Waterpark's attractions will include a lazy river, two four-story water slides, an interactive water playground, and pools for swimming and diving meets, as well as water polo competitions. On its premises will be a 7,000-square-foot support center with a cafŽ and concession stand with indoor seating, meeting rooms and manager's office. "W e are getting out of the starting blocks right now with the sale of season passes," Mr. Anderson said.

Then the SUV overturned and hit a car at that property causing about $15,000 worth of damage. And as it turns out, the man had no driver license. N or did he own the SUV. The man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. A bad day It wasn't a good day last w eek for a Port St. Lucie woman. S he was not only knocked off her scooter by a car, but she was also arrested. The Port St. Lucie woman, who suffered minor injuries, told police a vehicle backed up into her scooter, causing her to fall off of it. The driver of the vehicle who hit her saw her throw a cigarette box into the grass and went over to check on what she threw. He found a wooden container. An officer discovered a wooden container in the cigarette box contained a metal-cigarette type device with marijuana packed on one end of it. The woman told an officer that she was taking the marijuana with her on a fishing trip. I nstead of going fishing, she ended up getting treated at an emergency room and then heading toward the St. L ucie County jail where she was charged with possession of 20 grams or less of marijuana, tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia. M aybe the old adage is true that there are days when it is better to stay in bed. M aybe they should appear on Judge Judy A pparently, a neighborhood in Port St. Lucie is not the type of neighborhood that was portrayed in Mr. R ogers's show that aired on the Public Broadcasting S ystem. A report indicated a woman and a man living next to each other have had problems for 14 years. Those problems apparently boiled to the surface last week when the man started taking pictures of his neighbor's unleashed dogs. After seeing this, the woman became enraged and began knocking down a r ock wall separating their properties.

Y ou have two other streets to use that would completely r esolve the issue. Just flip the plan over and use the street on the north side. I really do not believe anyone ever looks at a city plan for anything anymore. Why doesn't the press put out a drawing of the proposeddesign for the public? It seems the city doesn' t want to share too much information anymore.Missing a tax paymentIf y ou miss paying an installment on your income tax, the IRS knows instantly and will be after you. If y ou enter this country illegally, the border patrol doesn't have a clue. S ome estimates are that there are 12 million illegals here but no one really knows. The truth is that the Obama administration does not care. The truth is that the Obama administration hopes that Americans will lose interest in this problem and that eventually the illegals will be permitted to vote (for Democrats, of course).No place for envyThe top 1 percent is a mathematical palace which many people visit, but where few reside very long. F our fifths of 40-year old Americans do better than their parents did when they were 40. That is one of the things which make the U.S. great.It is called opportunity but there are no guarantees. O pportunity is based on hard work, sometimes mixed in with a little good luck.If we get rid of all the 1 percenters today, a new top 1 percent would take their place. It is a mathematical certainty. There is no place in this country for class envy.Lights, trash need attentionI wonder who is responsible for the sprinklers around the Fo rt Pierce Yacht Club? The lights on the river walk and the emptying of the trash cans? These all need attention.Still saving homes?Three years ago bureaucrats devised a scheme which they promised would save millions of Americans whose homes we re underwater.They spent billions.It was a total failure. No w, having learned nothing, they are using something called the Home Affordable Refinance Program to do more of the same.They are determined to save millions of home o wners regardless of how much their homes have fallen in v alue.Such foolishness is rewarded only in Washington.Give Cain the benefit of the doubtWhy is it when somebody is arrested, they are presumed innocent untilfacts prove guilt in a court of law, versus the case of Herman Cain being presumed guilty until heproves his innocence? Why is he being treated unfairly? I think it is another example from the bunch of crooks we have in Washington trying to keep an honest man out of office. Don't allow this injustice toruin a good man's efforts to bring honesty and integrity back to the White House.In response to "Counties should help"When did local counties state they, "refuse to create work, affordable housing and eliminate homelessness?" Whether they did or did not say this doesn't matter though. In your opinion, how is a county (or city) of any kind going to "create work" as you put it? B efore work is created, there must be some sort of project (job) at hand. Depending on how big this project is, it will obviously require people to run the project. These people will then, and only then, be considered workers of the project, therefore, work has been created. However, these people will have to go through the normal hiring process to be accepted for the work just like any other job. If and only if they meet the qualifications for the job and pass the screening, will they be considered for the job. As a lot of people already know from looking for jobs everywhere, a lot of jobs require at least a year or more of experience before even getting considered for the job. Ev en if you just got out of college with your A/C (or mechanic, electrical, etc.) certs, you just spent a lot of money and time on, no experience equals no job. If they cannot find people for the job, the job will get contracted out to the lowest bid of a company who has the experienced workers for the job. This applies to the counties and cities, as well. Instead of going through the whole hiring and training process, they place a bid on the job and give the job to the company with the lowest bid. As for the "hard for both counties to create work" part, see the above answer for that. As far as the "affordable housing" part, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe not too long ago the county (and city) we re purchasing foreclosed houses, fixing them up and r eselling them to low-income families with a very low interest mortgage. With that said, they have, in a sense, created affordable housing. Did this eliminate homelessness? I'm sure it has to an extent. Y ou are correct, there are people out of work or about to lose their jobs but saying they are going to be put on the street and become homeless is a bit drastic, although it is possible and may happen eventually. I have a friend who has been out of work (laid off, like a lot have during that time) for over three years who had tried to make ends meet by cutting lawns until he finally got hired as a sub-contractor (with no benefits) for an airplane manufacturing plant in Stuart, which had been bought out by a larger company a few years ago. He was doing great until this larger company decided to "r estructure" (read: operate less expensively) a section of the warehouse of which my friend has been working in for over a y ear and my family member who has been working in for more than 35 years and have another company (read: subcontractor) take over that section. No w, they both have to reapply for the same position they already had and, if all goes well, get rehired! Might not sound so bad to you, but my family member's pay will now be cut down to more than half! How is he expected to still pay his mortgage, utilities and other bills? Does anyone who has been working so hard for over 35 years, who isn't even a boss making the "big bucks," deserve that treatment? Of course not but that's what these big corporations do. They take over the small companies, merge, lay off the workers who have been there for over 20 years (well-experienced) with great benefits and a pension (but can't retire because they are still too young), and bring in new faces who get paid less, get barely any benefits and need to be trained. M aybe, instead of companies merging and buying out other companies all over the place, they should expand separately, keeping the current workers and hiring new workers to keep the companies afloat. But that will be just too much work! Sounds kind of ironic, don't ya think? Who are these same people you refer to? The people who are out of work or about to lose their jobs or the county? You then say "they look the other way to not solve the problem?" Is this the people or county? If you mean the people or county or both, how do you think they can solve this problem you speak of? M aybe before posting these rant questions (problems), y ou should think if they have possible answers (solutions). B ut what does a 30-year-old man like me know who, with a Got something to say?

Since I took office almost a year ago, a few core missions and values drive my decisions as your chief financial officer. You deserve a government that protects your hardearned dollars and that is why my key initiatives continue to focus on transparency and accountability, finance and economy, fraud and consumer protection. W ith the next legislative session beginning in J anuary, my 2012 legislative agenda will focus on four core themes that support these initiatives: transparency in contracts and government spending, protecting consumers, fighting fraud and reducing r egulatory burdens on F lorida's businesses. H onoring my commitment to government transparency, several of my proposed reforms are aimed at strengthening accountability in state contracting. This effort includes expanded powers to monitor state agency procurements for compliance, as well as authority to review and approve or reject state contracts prior to execution. To ensure that tax dollars are being spent wisely, my aim is to increase competition in the state bidding process. R ecent news reports have highlighted increasing trends in identity theft in Florida. As a consumer protection measure, I will work to close a loophole that allows certain groups to obtain Social Security information from the D epartment of Financial Se r vices' Bureau of U nclaimed Property. In an effort to curb the increase of PIP fraud and give Floridians the relief they deserve on their auto insurance rates, my appointed insurance consumer advocate convened a working group to gather and develop ideas to address fraud and other potential alternatives to F lorida's current no-fault system which will be presented to the legislature. To address a new worker's compensation fraud scheme that is putting pressure on rates and crippling the business community, I called for a work group to make recommendations for combating workers' compensation premium fraud. As I host business r oundtables across the state, a top concern has been the burdensome r egulations that stifle business growth. I am asking the legislature to r epeal or rework laws that do not add value to F lorida's consumers or businesses, starting with some I have identified in my own agency. Fu r ther, Florida must streamline its information technology services, and I am pursuing a modern IT structure to accomplish this goal. In this challenging economic climate, we have a deep responsibility to create conditions that will bring down costs for Florida's families and businesses. I'm confident the legislature is equally committed to fostering economic success and r educing financial burdens on Florida's businesses and families, and I look forward to working with them toward these important goals.

S tuart Urgent Care and F amily Practice provides treatment to patients with non-life-threatening emergencies at about 75 percent less than emergency rooms. "W e fill the gap between the ER and private practice, and are basically a little of both," said J. Michael Adelberg, president of Stuart Ur gent Care, a subsidiary of Tr easure Coast Medical Associates. "W e' re basically a much more affordable provider of several of the same services," he said. "If you're dying, then go to the ER. But for pains, strains, colds, we can basically do just about anything else. There's a lot less wait than in the ER at a fraction of the cost." Doctors say patients with less-severe illness have longer waits in emergency r ooms, as staff attends to the most critical cases first. They say about 75 percent of all ER patients should ideally seek care in another setting, and that's why urgent care clinics emerged to provide high-quality and cheaper services. W ith physicians and nurse practitioners on call, the clinic also has a full complement of medical assistants and other staff. "C onsidering how expensive the ER is, this is the future. We're just much more convenient," Dr. A delberg said. "Urgent care is booming. With all of the changes in health care, urgent care is on the forefront of where health care is going in the future. "A lot of people associate walk-in clinics with lowincome patients and poor quality of care. But that's not the case. We've got top doctors, and our level of treatment is top tier," added Dr. Adelberg, a board-certified emergency physician. The practice accepts most insurance plans, and copays are typically around $20. "I nsurance companies love us because we save them a lot of money compared to when their customers go to an ER," Dr. A delberg said. U ninsured patients, too, are finding relief in the clinic's lower rates. Pa r t-time residents, who typically can't afford weeklong waiting periods for a new-patient appointment with a private practitioner, also enjoy the convenience of the walk-in clinic's ease of visit. What's good is that you can just walk into our office any day that we're open and be seen by the doctor," Dr. A delberg said. His company also provides occupational medicine services to local businesses. It does pre-employment physicals, drug testing, Department of Tr ansportation physicals, injury treatment, including workers' compensation and other services. S tuart Urgent Care also staffs and runs the city of Po rt S t. Lucie's staff clinic. The company also specializes in providing pre-op surgery clearances that save patients and physicians weeks of waiting and visits to multiple specialists. It performs same-day, inhouse evaluations for plastic surgery centers, orthopedic centers and others, eliminating the need for separate trips to labs and other providers. That can take quite a bit of time and running around, and that's not what someone's who's going into surgery wants to be doing at that time," Dr. Adelberg said. The practice's multiple services also includes providing sports physicals at competitive prices for students. It is also licensed to treat patients addicted to opiates. "W ith all we do, we have a definite advantage," Dr. A delberg said. S tuart Urgent Care and F amily Practice is located at 1607 N.W.Federal Highway, about 1 mile north of the R oosevelt Bridge.For more information,call (772) 6928082.Urgent care clinic fills gap between emergency room, private practiceBusinessBy Samantha Josephsjoseph@hometownnewsol.com J.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl St e wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or e-mail earls@earlstewarttoyota.co m. 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.Alocal attorney emailed me yesterday morning, asking me to send him the various articles I'd written on the infamous dealer fee. He is trying a case in Akron, Ohio, and wanted to research this issue. I've written so many articles over the years that I sent him seven and also my blog address, www.EarlS tewartOnCars.com, so that he could read all of them if he chose. Later that afternoon, I r eceived a call from a young couple in Fort Lauderdale who had just discovered they had paid $1,248 in dealer fees after they bought a new Toyota and drove it home. They wanted to know what they could do about it. They asked if they had any legal recourse. They had not r esponded to an advertisement on a specific car, which is the case with most buyers, so they had no legal r ecourse. They had recently moved to Florida from C alifornia (where they do have a good dealer fee law) and were amazed how F lorida had such a weak law and that even that was not r egulated. These two occurrences made me realize that I can't be quiet on this subject just because things have gotten better in my local market. The number of dealers in my market charging the dealer fee has abated by four: Royal Palm Toyota in the Wellington area, Palm B each Toyota in West Palm B each, Treasure Coast To y ota in Stuart and Delray To y ota all eliminated their dealer fees. I call this the domino effect." Why only Toyota dealers? That's because of the economic impact that my dealership, which does not charge a dealer fee, has had on each of them. I've grown from the second smallest To y ota dealership in Palm B each, Martin and St. Lucie counties to No. 1, by far. My dealership is in Lake Park, which has a population of only 9,000. In fact I advertise being in North Palm B each (on the border with Lake Park) because most people don't know where Lake Park is. The only way I was able to grow Earl S tewart Toyota to No. 1 was to sell into the other Toyota dealers' markets. The 21st century consumer is far more intelligent and discriminating than most dealers give them credit for. If y ou arm the consumer with information, they usually make the right buying decision. I've done a good job of arming the Toyota buyers in my market with that information, but I can't quit now. The word must be spread throughout Florida and the other states in the U.S. that still have ineffective consumer laws and r egulation. This blog is read on the Internet all over the world. National news stories have been written and talked about my battle against the dealer fee. It's been reported on CNN, Fox, ABC, the Wall Street Journal, N ew York Times, USA Today and many other national media. The reason the dealer fee is such a bad thing lies in one undisputable and fundamental right of the consumer. That is the right to be told the true and full price of any product or service before committing to purchase it. I recently bought a S amsung refrigerator from Lowe's. I researched it in "C onsumer Reports" and it was the No. 1 ranked sideby -side refrigerator. "Consumer Reports" also indicated what I could expect to pay for this model. I expected to and did, in fact, but for slightly less than "Consumer Report" suggested and Lowe's advertised. Of course, I did have to add sales tax, but even the delivery and installation were both included in the advertised price. If I had bought a car in Florida, the chances are about 99 percent there would be a "surprise charge" anywhere between $500 and $2,500 (or maybe higher). Ou r Florida law on this subject restricts the dealer to not advertising a price that does not include the dealer fee. F irst of all, the law is not enforced at all. On any given day, I can show you many examples of car dealers who simply ignore this law. Some totally ignore it, some simply note in the fine print that the price quote in the large print is plus a dealer fee and do state the amount. Some don't even state the amount. Many display a small innocuous number by the price, such as STK#123B. This means there is only one car advertised at this price. STK# stands for stock number. Your chances of buying this one car when y ou arrive are slim and none. What you can buy is another stock number car, which may be exactly the same, but, because it wasn't the specific advertised car, the dealer can legally add any amount to the price that he calls his dealer fee. F lorida law calls for no cap to the amount of a dealer fee it's left up to the dealers' gall and imagination. Of course the name dealer fee is just the most common one. There are dozens of different names because F lorida law also does not specify one. This would make it too easy for the consumer. Dealer prep, doc fee, notary fee, pre-delivery fee and administrative fee are just a few. Sometimes the dealers will have two or three "dealer fees." A popular one now is to mark up the electronic filing fee. This costs the dealer $12 and they can mark that up as much they want to. The law says this should be disclosed because it is considered a dealer fee, but many just ignore that. The legal disclosure on the buyer's order should be: "T his charge represents costs and profits to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles and preparing documents r elated to the sale." What happens most of the time to customers is they don't have a chance to learn about the dealer fee until they get into the F&I office also known as the finance office or business office. This is when the dealer tries to make another profit by selling you products such as warranties and marking up the bank's interest rate. Let me be clear, a fair profit is a good thing and y ou should consider buying warranties or letting the dealer sell you a warranty if he is competitive in his pricing. But what else happens in the F&I office is that you are confronted by a large number of documents with lots of fine print that y ou must sign. On one of these, if you're lucky, you will finally learn of the marked up electronic filing fee, doc fee, dealer prep fee or whatever else the dealer decides to call it and how much he decides to charge y ou.

legitimate federal, state or local taxes or fees. You may not even notice them at all until you get home when it's too late. Or you may believe that you have to pay these fees and everybody charges them so what's the harm? H elp me spread the word. J ust say no to the dealer fee! Always get a competitive out-the-door price and shop and compare. If the dealer insists on adding a dealer fee, just be sure it's included in the out-thedoor price and compare it with at least two other dealers' prices. Wr ite your legislator and tell him how you feel about the dealer fee. Call your local newspaper and TV station and tell them the same thing.

Seafood market is great catch STUART Seafood lovers rejoice. The Naked Pirate S eafood Market and Galley is a place to revel and indulge in just about everything from under the sea. On the one hand, the S tuart restaurant is a large seafood market, offering beautiful, freshly caught grouper, salmon, mahi mahi and several varieties of snapper among its catches. On the other, it resembles a seaside deli, serving up citrus conch, baby octopus, shrimp-salad sandwiches, tuna melts with chips, fried soft-shell crabs, soups or chowder, stuffed clams, crab cakes, seaweed salad, calamari and shrimp, lobster or conch fritters. Whenever people come in, we tell them, Whatever is in the display case, we can cook it for y ou,'" said Jonathan Snyder, an employee at the store that opened last January. N aked Pirate is an easy favorite. Even its name seems appropriate, because its simple restaur ant fare arrives at the table practically "naked," with little adornment. A favorite, the lobster ro ll, is a thirdor halfpound portion of fresh M aine lobster with mayonnaise and celery. There's nothing else in it, no fillers, no preservatives. It's simply good," Mr. Snyder said. It feels like a treat, served on a buttered, grilled side-split bun.

The Boy Scouts of America Gulf Stream Council completed its annual Scouting for Food mission on Nov. 12 and with the hard work of hundreds of Boy Scouts, C ub Scouts and ROTC cadets, collected 16,490 pounds of food for the Martin Volunteers White Doves H oliday Project. The families who are r eferred to the White Doves H oliday Project are very grateful for the generosity of all the Martin County residents who provide both food and toys to help those in need of assistance during the holidays," said Carlene S tangle, volunteer coordinator of Martin Volunteers. Last year we were able to serve 1,097 families with 2,514 children and we anticipate an even greater need this year." All food collected during the Scouting for Food drive will be sorted and packed into grocery bags by volunteers, then distributed through the White Doves H oliday Project. The White Doves Holiday Pr oject was created to help struggling families during the holidays by proving toys for their children and the staples for a holiday meal. White Doves is a project of U nited Way of Martin County's Martin Volunteers Program. F or more information,call (772) 220-4472 or email cstangle@martinvolunteers.org.

One thing I have noticed from this global warming" is that many courses in south F lorida no longer over-seed for the winter season. You have to travel a little north to get those lush rye greens and tees. Fo r tunately for me, our newspaper's circulation covers courses well north of my So-Fla home. This past week I traveled a short hop and a skip up the interstate to Viera, home of Du r an Golf Club. Here I was met by an extremely friendly and helpful staff. I was almost certain the holiday season had something to do with it, but I was assured by the locals that this is always the case here. The first thing that jumped out at me was the beautiful lush green of the place. I had forgotten how great the winter rye makes everything look. Ball marks on over-seeded greens seem to heal more quickly and putts roll very smoothly on them. The tees provide you plenty of places to stick that peg in the ground without having to look for that last bit of actual turf. I was in heaven. Du r an Golf Club, completed in 2005, is easily accessible from I-95 in V iera, just north of Melbourne. The course features five sets of tees, with the longest playing to 7,151 yards. A very stern test considering how much wind blows through the fairways. For the less accomplished players, one can easily find a set of tees to match his or her skill or mood for the day. The club also has a full dining room, with a fantastic menu complete with early bird specials, a Sunday jazz brunch and more. The pro shop is filled with the latest fashions and gear, including a great selection of golf balls, gloves and caps. Also on property is the Du r an Academy of Golf, a comprehensive instructional and coaching program dedicated to golfers that are passionate about getting the most out of their game. The full-time staff of PGA instructors offer one-onone individual lessons and group sessions to clinics, multi-day golf schools, and high tech video swing analysis. Du r an also offers adult and junior activities, leagues and more. The club truly serves as part of the community. The name Duran comes from the land itself, not the early '80s English pop band. Owned by the Duda family for five generations, the r elatively flat prairie was used as a cattle ranch and sod farm. The name is a combination of "Du" from D uda and "ran" from ranch. The course was designed by Lewis "Chip" Powell. His keen eye for manipulating an area's natural weather patterns and wind tendencies made him a logical choice to incorporate design features that considered the wide-open spaces found here, along with the va r ying coastal winds of the east coast of Florida. The combination resulted in holes that play with as much as a five-club difference from day to day. To build a golf course on a piece of property this flat, and void of all but one tree at the start, requires moving and shaping more than a million cubic yards of earth. The result is a course with links characteristics, including rolling terrain, mounded greens and 15 ponds. The use of native grasses, and the importation of a several thousand oak and cypress trees and native palms give the course character. The course is still young, and still maturing. The green complexes continue to improve and benefit from the growth that years of care bring. The trees on the course are young, but have begun to fill out and provide definition. The course starts you off on the right foot, a pleasant par-5 with no surprises. I began my day with a rare birdie. The third is home to the only tree standing when construction began. The lone palm stands guard on a small peninsula that jets out into the lake and warns golfers of the danger lurking behind. On your way around the course you are greeted with a pleasurable playing experience. Choosing the proper set of tees gives one just enough challenge. I used most of the clubs in my bag and quickly figured out that the wind needed to be taken into account on every shot. My final tally was better than I expected. W inter rates at Duran are very competitive, with F lorida residents enjoying a nice discount. The course is located at 7032 Stadium Pa r kway, Viera, FL 32940.

Beautiful sun, big blue sky and the wind will not stop, it just keeps blowing. That wind weapon is still keeping anglers on the east side of the river. Su rf anglers are waiting and offshore tied to the dock. Pirates Cove sail fish tournament was held this w eekend and with 6-foot and 7-foot seas, it was not for the faint of heart. Big waves, big boats, lots of bait and plenty of sails; 374 were r eleased and I am glad I was not in this tournament. Ye s, the fish are here we just have to get to them, S panish macs a plenty, one cast, one fish in their favored king fish hole, just south of the St Lucie Inlet. Dolphins were pesky early in the week, eating all the baits starting in 80 feet with a mix of sails and kings to keep busy.Then the wind, steady out of the east, kept the average anglers tied to the dock.Let's keep our fingers crossed for this w eek. Su rf saw plenty of blues, macs and jacks casting spoons early in the day, but now it is all white water. This week it will lie down and it will get back to normal. Spoons and cut bait early, then by later morning it will be pompano on sand fleas and clams; should even find some whiting in the mix if the weather man gets it right. River anglers trout season is closed so that means they are everywhere and all over the slot. No, the season is closed, put them back. R ed fish have gotten under control, still plenty of them just not as pesky as they were. Anglers found plenty in Middle Cove, Blind Cr eek, east end of the causeways and across the S ail Fish Flats, favored baits we re jigs and small spoons. P ompano made a bit of a showing at the bridges a few across the Sail Fish Flats, this should be the week. S nook season is winding down, Dec. 15 it closes until Feb. 1. Good bite going in the dark hours, pick a bridge and watch that slot. All and all we have had a good bite going in spite of the wind, blues, macs, lacks, ladys and plenty of drum, sheephead and a few I left out. Now if we can turn off the wind weapon. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.
