The musicians will play two free shows at the Blake Library on Dec. 17. The performances are the latest undertaking for a band whose mission is to make the arts available to r esidents at no or low cost. Group members, under the direction of Christopher Kalwa, rehearse and perform at no cost, traveling to Martin County community-based groups for shows. "T his feels great," said D ebra Carttar. "We all are musicians who love playing, rehearsing and giving back to the community with a free concert." The holiday performances cover several holiday favorites, including "Midnight Sleigh Ride," "Suite" from "The Nutcracker," "H anukkah Highlights" and va r iations on "Deck the H alls." To prepare for performances, the band meets on M onday evenings from 7-9 at Stuart Middle School.

ra r ely afford," said Denise B elizar, the center's marketing manager. That's why the nonprofit is collecting these items this holiday season. In addition to a food drive to help ensure the area's seniors have enough to eat, the group also wants to ensure they have the products they need for daily hygiene. Lotions, shaving cream, cologne, perfume are often a luxury for them, so it's nice for them to receive around the holidays," Ms. Belizar said. F or many seniors, food is in short supply, and they can't afford separate meals for their pets. This leads them to share their own food, risking their health by eating too little, or sometimes choosing to buy food for themselves and pets before purchasing medicine. C ouncil on Aging officials want to use this holiday drive to stock the organization's emergency pantry, which offers assistance to clients rationing food. As temperatures drop, the group also wants blankets and bedding for seniors who can't afford to make the necessary changes to adapt to the changes in the weather. The council, the county's longest-standing organization dedicated to serving seniors, also operates the Me als on Wheels program, which delivers hot meals to homebound residents. I ts services and programs, including an adult day program, care management, caregiver support and inhome services, allow seniors to live independently in their own homes. It is accepting donations for the holiday food and supply drive at the Kane C enter, its Stuart-based headquarters, located at 900 S.E. Salerno Road.

The formula divides the number of students graduating within four years with a diploma by the number entering ninth grade for the first time four years earlier. It does not take into account students who take the GED or general education development test. Ma r tin County's rate places it among the top-tier districts, second to Gulf C ounty, where 95.7 percent of 139 students graduated. In Ma r tin County, the calculation included 1,343 students. The results were also a r ecord performance for the district, which saw its rate increase from 94.9 percent, said spokeswoman Cathy Br ennan. Area schools also outpaced the state's average of 80.1 percent. "O ur entire community should be extremely proud of our all-time high graduation rate of 95.2 percent," said Superintendent Nancy Kline. "Graduating on time, within four years of entering high school is vital to our students' future success in college or the workplace. I would like to thank our teachers, administrators, parents and students for their hard work." Area graduation numbers have been on the upswing. In 2008, about 90.3 percent of students completed school and graduated.

T wo leaders of the association, Lorraine Cardarelli and Doris Medwin, set up a festive Thanksgiving tree in the Piper's Landing clubhouse to prompt their fellow members to give. The tree was decorated with tags that members could fill out to provide a donation to House of Hope. The little tree turned out to be a big success, as the drive, which lasted throughout November, raised $2,130. That money will be used by H ouse of Hope to purchase gift cards for selected client families so they can shop for food, toys, clothing or household items this holiday season. The Piper's Landing Yacht & Country Club in Palm City, is a year-round supporter of H ouse of Hope. Throughout the year, boxes are set up in the locker rooms to collect food donations. The collection this year added up to more than 700 pounds of food, or the equivalent of about 550 meals. H ouse of Hope board member, Elaine Matts, is a Piper's Landing resident and is leader of the agency's H earts for Hope luncheon. S he and her husband, Jim, also were the presenting sponsors of this past year's Golf Tournament of Hope, which was hosted at Piper's Landing. M any other residents are r egular volunteers, event committee members and generous donors. H ouse of Hope is a nonprofit agency that provides food, clothing, case management and financial assistance to Martin County residents in need.

The arrest occurred after deputies responded to complaints from neighbors about a noise coming from a r esidence, according to a press release. The Eagle Marsh Country Club Homeowners Association filed the complaint after having "received several complaints from residents regarding noise associated with a pool pump at the residence. They stated that the pump would run continuously for days at a time, disturbing the enjoyment of their property and affecting their peace, quiet and serenity," the press r elease said. D eputies arrived at the house and found the door partly open, but no one r esponded to attempts to make contact, the press r elease said. C oncerned about the safety of the occupants, deputies entered the house and found jars of marijuana in the kitchen area and a marijuana grow operation inside a second floor bedr oom. After obtaining a search warrant, deputies found 40 marijuana plants and 69 grams of marijuana, valued at $2,000, the press release said.

C ongratulations to him for opposing a law that is reminiscent of Nazi Germany, where people were encouraged to rat out anyone they knew for any reason. There have always been rogue cops and no doubt always will be, but we should do all we can to discourage them. My question to the North Palm Beach Police Benevolent Association is, why do you focus on protecting a rogue cop instead of protecting the citizen taxpayer against his abuse? Whatever happened to to serve and protect?'Re:happy holidays' rantIn r esponse to last week's rant on Dec. 2 regarding "happy holidays?" This "individual" (purposely quoted) ranted "Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land" and "trying to convince all of us to say "happy holidays" rather than "merry Christmas." C orrect me if I'm wrong, but Christmas is in December, is it not? When do people shop for presents for Christmas? (Having been in retail for more than eight years, I should know the answer to this one). Toward the middle of No vember through the day before Christmas, right? Do you really think "Christmas" is the only holiday during that time? I'm sure you don't because I'm sure you have heard of the other "holidays" during this time such as H anukkah. Not to mention the others such as St. Lucia Da y, K wanzaa and the Chinese New Year. M aybe you assume everyone in this state (or maybe even country) are Christian and because they are all Christian, they celebrate Christmas. Well, you know what happens when one "assumes," do you not? Let's say you did assume this. That would be a pretty incorrect (and foolish) assumption because, as a 30-year old man, originally from New York, living in Florida for 12 y ears, being in school in both states, and working in retail and other jobs in this state, I've seen many other "individuals" besides ones who are Christian and celebrate Christmas. I also have a couple of Jewish friends and Jewish customers within my own business. Do these "individuals" celebrate Christmas? No, they celebrate what their religion believes in, which is Hanukkah. W ould you really greet a person you have never met before with, "Have a merry Christmas?" That would be fine if you were directing that toward me. However, if my friend was near and you also directed it to him, not only he, but I would become pretty offensive. Why? Because my friend is J ewish, that's why, and he celebrates Hanukkah. He should have been greeted with a "Happy Hanukkah" because that's the "holiday" this "individual" celebrates. Or, if you don't know what holiday he celebrates, he should be greeted by the default "happy holidays" instead, to prevent any offensiveness and selfish error on your part. O h, and while we are at it, let's not forget about wishing the pagans around here a "happy Saturnalia," which is their "holiday" between Dec. 17-25. What was that? Dec. 25? That's right. If it weren't for the lovely pagans (who are still around us, closer than you may think) there would probably have been no such thing as Christmas (birth of J esus Christ) on Dec. 25. And just in case you didn't know, Jesus wasn't actually born on Dec. 25. I'll let you do some research yourself and figure the rest of the story out such as with the origins of the Christmas tree, mistletoe, presents and last but not least, Santa Claus. I'll give you a small hint: it's all in the holy Bible. So to conclude, I believe the reverse of what you ranted has taken place here; the Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land again trying to convince narrow-minded folks like yourself to say "merry Christmas" instead of saying "happy holidays" to others such as my friends and customers, who are Jewish, Pagan, etc. just so they continue to get pushed aside and ignored, while all of the narrowminded folks around them spread their wonderful joy of celebrating Christmas, which, according to your rant, is the only holiday during December! And, for the record, I was brought up Catholic but because of this (people like yourself who don't believe in an individual's freedom of religion and beliefs) and other r easons not worth mentioning here, I have stripped away my beliefs and ties with any religion a long time ago. I guess you can say, I'm open minded when it comes to the many religions out there but closed minded when it comes to having faith and belief in one or any spirit for that matter. No w, to you and everyone else who reads this paper, have a very happy holiday!Another kind of fraudP IP fraud works both ways. Drivers with Medicare and supplemental health insurance cannot collect on a PIP claim because the bills are paid. This is the worst kind of fraud, since it is government mandated on seniors who are least able to pay. I suppose the insurance companies would say we need the income from non-claimants to cover the cost of fraudulent claims. Not fair! A solution would be to require drivers to show Medicare and supply insurance cards with license, registration and auto insurance during traffic stops. Editor's note: The state department of financial services r esponds:Although it is true that some of the coverage can be the same that is provided by PIP and Medicare,there are substantial differences. PI P is primary over all types of insurance,except workers compensation.PIP can also pay for certain benefits not provided by Medicare. F or instance,if you are injured in an auto accident and things that you used to do around the house for yourself, you are no longer able to do,PIP can reimburse you if you have to pay someone to perform these duties.This is called "r eplacement services."Examples can be cooking,cleaning, mowing the grass,etc. P IP also includes a $5,000 death benefit if you are killed in an auto accident.Neither of these would be covered by Me dicare. There are a couple of options to reduce the PIP premium: insured consumers may also elect a deductible for PIP of $250,$500,$1,000 or $2,000. They can exclude work loss benefits if they are no longer working. E ither of these two elections should reduce the PIP premium.The elections can apply to the named insured only or the named insured and resident relatives,depending on what the insured chooses.However,before reducing or eliminating any coverage,we recommend an individual talk to their agent first.The insured must sign a form to reduce this coverage.S ymbol of libertyO ur flag is the symbol of love of liberty.Our flag stands for duty, honor, country, sacrifice and freedom.

There is however, a way to manage your passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Let's start at the beginning, the computer log-in screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password unless you have set it up for automatic log in. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. People don't want to be bothered entering their password every time they turn the computer on, so the system gets set up without it. Su re it's convenient, but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all your stuff. M any people choose to go this route thinking, "Hey, I'm the only one who uses this machine so I don't need it asking for a password every time." Bu t if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If it's a desktop machine the argument seems a little more valid, but it won't protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the Internet). If y our machine is connected to the network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. Weak passwords may be easy to r emember, but they are often short "dictionary" words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. P asswords such as "God," monkey," or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember, but they are also the first things that these password cracking utilities will try. That's why many sites (and programs) insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. "MonK ey!387" is a hell of a lot harder for someone to crack than just "monkey." Su re it may be a little more inconvenient but using a w eak password will just give y ou a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is using one password for everything. The reasoning for this one is, "Well, I can't remember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem!" I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows log in, email, etc. is convenient, but a problem can arise if your password does get cracked. It 's common practice for hackers to try that same username and password pair everywhere. It may be a bit inconvenient, but using a different password for every site is a lot safer than using one password everywhere. Earlier in this column I mentioned there is a free solution that solves these issues. Open your browser and pull up www.keepass.com Keepass is a free (open source) program that will allow you to store and manage all of y our passwords in one place so you don't have to r ely on post it notes all over y our desk. Use Keepass to create unique "strong" passwords for all of your sites and you won't need to sacrifice security for convenience.

It's not r eligious, although it does incorporate advice which can be found in all of the different religions. I like it because it helps to kick my day off positively. In fact I share it with some friends, family and employees those who I think would enjoy it. This morning there was a phrase that inspired this column, "Without judgment as to whether it is difficult or easy, popular or unpopular, do what you know is right." I highlighted this phrase before I forwarded it. My last column was entitled "The dealer fee, r evisited." If you're a new r eader or if you missed my last column, please read it before you read further. (V isit www.EarlStewartOnC ars.com. ) Mo re than one-third of the new and used cars I sell now are sold over the I nternet. As you know, online sales are surging for all products and will soon dwarf sales from brick and mortar stores. Prospective customers surf the web to r esearch which specific car they want to buy and then they contact various dealers via email to find out who will offer them the best price. I wrote another column entitled "The Internet offers the lowest price for a car." The reason the I nternet offers the lowest price is because car dealers have only one chance to sell you a car when you contact them online. You can shop a dozen car dealers online in less time than it takes to visit one car dealership in person. Each dealer knows that if his price is higher than one of the other dealers, he loses the sale. The big problem I used to encounter was the "infamous dealer fee." I don't charge a dealer fee because I believe it is unfair and deceptive. I would quote my best price, but the other dealers would usually beat it because they could add hundreds of even thousands to the price they quoted our prospective customer. To solve my problem, I mystery shopped all of my completion and learned the amount of their dealer fees. Now whenever a prospective customer asks me for my best prices on a specific car via email, I always include a list of the dealer fees that all of my competitors charge on top of that price that they quote this same customer. This enables the customer to make an informed decision on who really has the lowest price. W ithout this information, a customer would pay, on average, about $900 more. This is the average dealer fee in my market. S ome are well more than $1,000. If you would like to see how I do this, click on www.EarlStewartToyota.co m and then click on "r equest a quote" on the left. I've been informing my prospective customers of what the other dealers add in the form of their dealer fee to the prices they quote for over two years. Before I began doing this, I discussed it with two Toyota r epresentatives who were r esponsible for dealer sales in my market. I did this because I knew that the other dealers would be upset about this, even though I was doing what was best, not only for me, but for Toyota buyers. Both of these Toyota representatives told me that they thought I was doing the r ight thing. A couple of weeks ago, another Toyota representative told me he thought I should stop disclosing the amount of the dealer fee for other Toyota dealers but that there was no problem if I disclosed the dealer fee amount for non-Toyota dealers. When I asked why, he said I was "disparaging" other Toyota dealers by re vealing their dealer fees. Of course, I responded, How can the truth or a fact be disparaging?" I still don't have an answer to that question. The Toyota r epresentative cited the To y ota Dealer Advertising Co venant, TDAC, as authority for his request to stop what I was doing. The TDAC is a contract that all To y ota dealers must sign that establishes what dealers can ethically and legally advertise. Violations lead to huge fines which can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. I told him that the TDAC applied only to advertising, not a salesman responding to a customer's request for a price on a specific car. I said that if Toyota wanted me keep other dealers' dealer fees secret from my I nternet customers, it would follow that I must do the same for customers who phone or come into my dealership asking for pricing information. As I write this article, I'm waiting for clarification from Toyota on all of the above. I have received a written notice from the independent company in Bi r mingham, Ala., that administers the TDACDo what you know is right, even when it's not popular ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A9

In both public surveys and at the ballot box, Americans have rejected the law's r equirement that everyone must purchase health insurance. The majority feels it is gross overreach for government to tell us what to do. N ext, citizens must buy broccoli?Citizens must buy domestic automobiles?The system is out of balance when nine unelected lawyers can tell us what to do.What would happen?So what would happen if America decided that Mr. C ain's sex life was none of our business?What would happen if America chose Mr. Cain's economic plan? What would happen if the power of picking winners and losers in Washington was substantially diluted by the 9-9-9 Plan? What would happen if America decided that a successful mainstream businessman knows more about what makes a small business successful enough to grow and provide jobs to Americans? What would happen if word got out that it is small businesses that employ most Americans and Mr. Cain's knowledge would be very crucial in getting middle class America back to work? What would happen if America realized the same successful business executive skills that Mr. Cain used to turn failing businesses around are the same skills that are needed in the oval office? What would happen if America realized the career politicians do not know anything about main street economics and the incompetent career politicians are r esponsible for this country's recession? What would happen if America decided to vote in a common-sense, problemsolving successful businessman into the oval office? What is a president if not the CEO of America? Editor's note: Mr.Cain has suspended his presidential campaign.More on Mr. CainEv eryone says they are for the common man, outside the political class. It is just empty rhetoric from our leaders. Mr. Cain is the commonman, the regular guy who lives the American dream, which says anyone can succeed if they work hard. The political establishment and the media have treated this man so shabbily. Is it any wonder Americans have such a low opinion of bothgroups?They have earned our scorn. I will be writing Herman C ain's name in on the primary ballot.If we are to take back America and make her prosperous, again, we need a Washington outsider with main street business expertise.That man is Herman Cain. Mr. Cain's tax policy r emoves Washington's propensity to pick winners and losers through a complicated and corrupt tax code. The 9-9-9 plan is fair to everyone,transparent and flexible enough to empower blighted communities. Mr. C ain's policy is to fix government programs and make them work in a fiscally sane way, while providing for optimal service as originally mandated. Mr. Cain does not use the corrosive and divisive political weapons of class warfare and race baiting. His political and moral visionelevates all America andhe will unite us. I urge all America not to settle for anyone but Obama.Obama has to go. H is policies of unfair regulation, fiscally insane health care mandatesand unjust taxation on our small businesses and small banks is killing the middle class. It is the middle class that runs the economic engine of America. M ost of us work for small business and Obamanomics have declared war on us.We need a commonsense, problem solver who knows how main street business succeeds and provides jobs for all Americans. We need an outsider to clean up the stink of corr uption and incompetence.We need a leader, willing to listen to the expertsand able to makethe decisions that always keeps America's best interest first.

Ihave always wondered what makes a master teacher. In simplest terms, what makes some teachers so beloved by their students and others, not so much? Is it a question of personality? Of knowledge? Of procedure? Of some intangible quality? Is becoming a master teacher a trainable talent? Over the years, I have given this question a lot of thought. As an educator who has done a fair amount of teaching and supervising, I find it an interesting topic not only as an intellectual exercise, but as a practical one. We have all had master teachers whom we fondly r emember, who made us want to be in their classes, even if the subject taught was not our favorite. We have also all experienced teachers who somehow made us dread their classes. U nfortunate, but true. I dispense with the notion that master teachers are created by institutions conferring education degrees upon them. A degree that says you are an educator is simply the end of a process that states you are qualified to instruct and know the parameters and mechanics of how to be an educator in a certain topic or topics. However, that in itself does not make you a master teacher. I also dispense with the notion that years of experience make a master teacher. Although experience is an integral component of the learning process an educator undergoes throughout his or her career, it does not, by itself, constitute a measure of effectiveness or ability. I firmly believe that experience makes educators better, but experience by itself does not make a master teacher. After many years of observation, I think there are three key factors that make a teacher great and memorable, a master teacher. F irst, the teacher must be fully versed in the subject matter he teaches. Second, the teacher must be able to effectively (and interestingly) communicate said subject matter. Third, the teacher must be able to connect with the students he teaches. A master teacher has an inherent ability to connect and put himself at the service of his students. S tudents recognize when their teacher is fully invested in the material being taught and fully invested in them. M aster teachers make their connections to students in myriad ways, whether humorous, intellectual, emotional or something else, but it is that ability to connect that allows teachers to communicate to students they are the most important things in the world to them. There is no student who can possibly reject that connection. It is an inherent human instinct to gravitate to those we believe love us or will care for us. Master teachers convey that feeling. M any teachers are authorities in their subject matter, but not as many have figured out how to impart that knowledge with z eal and clarity. Engaging students, making them want to learn and making a connection is only one piece of the puzzle for a master teacher. Taking that connection and filling it with instruction and information that will last a lifetime is a task of surgical precision. A master teacher brings that task to a zenith of perfection. My observations cannot be turned into a formula, but every master teacher I have worked with, been friends with, learned from and observed has always had the qualities I have outlined. They are the qualities I model my teaching on and the markers that guide me forward professionally.

The 11th annual event is set for Feb. 4-5.Popular art festival returns for 11th yearMARTIN COUNTY A juried art show in Hobe S ound is set to bring about 50,000 people to Martin C ounty next spring. H obe Sound Festival of the Arts, slated for Feb. 4-5, will feature about 150 artists selected by an independent panel of judges. The artists were among hundreds of applicants and their work covers a range of media and perspectives. Their pieces include paintings, life-size sculptures, photography, ceramics, handmade jewelry, collages, mixed-media pieces, glass designs and woodwork. "B ecause it's a juried show, the producer, Ho ward Alan, was very selective, not just to finetune the quality of the art work, but to make sure many media are represented," said AnaBelle Dweck, publicist, Howard Alan Ev ents. H obe Sound has hosted the art festival for a decade, and next year will be the show's 11th anniversary. The Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce hosts the event, which attracts locals and visitors from across the r egion, state and country. The show allows attendees and collectors a chance to speak with the artists, discussing the work on display and pieces available for purchase. "Y ou'll see quite an eclectic mix," said Ms. Dweck. The prices are definitely suited to all price ranges. Yo u' ll find something as inexpensive as $20, and then a sculpture priced into the thousands and thousands of dollars, so it appeals to people at all levels. You'll find people there looking for an interesting piece, seasoned collectors and other buyers looking for new talent." The festival will span four blocks, starting at Bridge R oad and continuing south on AIA.

The annual charity gala was held at the Cahan Estate in Sewall's Point on Nov. 12. The Venetianthemed event featured 450 patrons and r aised $900,000, which will be used to purchase an inpatient radiation therapy suite at Martin Memorial M edical Center. The project will enable physicians to provide critical radiation therapy for cancer patients who must be hospitalized. "W e are extremely pleased to partner with Martin M emorial in providing our community with access to exceptional health care services," said Merle Ginsburg, Chrysanthemum Ball committee co-chairwoman. This will have a tremendous impact on the lives of countless Treasure Coast r esidents." Among the sponsors who made the 2011 Chrysanthemum Ball possible include: Ed and Joan McGowan; Mr. and Mrs. Barry Ginsburg; M etCare; Humana; Careplus; Betsy Herold; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas O'Malley; R obert and Carol Weissman and Crary Buchanan, attorneys at law. S ince its inception, the Chrysanthemum Ball has r aised more than $12.5 million. In that time, the event has earned a reputation for providing high-quality entertainment, fine cuisine and an energetic atmosphere. I ts committee of more than 30 volunteers has consistently created an event that is engaging to those who attend, but also is integrally important to Martin M emorial's mission of providing health care access to the community. P ast Chrysanthemum B alls raised funds for technologies such as a PET/CT scanner, two cardiac catheterization labs, a 64slice CT scanner, a digital mammography unit, an interventional radiology suite and equipment enhancements for nurses at bedsides. An endowment was also created that will fund patient-care projects in the future, as well. This event has left a lasting impression on the Treasure Coast," said Betsy He r old, Chrysanthemum B all committee co-chairwoman. The Chrysanthemum B all exemplifies how the community and a healthcare provider can enhance the quality of care through philanthropy."

This event promises to be great fun," said Drue Pollack, co-owner of the resort. "I t' s a great way to spread the word about Treasure C oast Hospice's new pet program to dog lovers throughout the Treasure C oast." P et Peace of Mind is a groundbreaking, national program developed and funded by Banfield Charitable Trust that aims to keep pets together with hospice patients and their families. The trust contributed a grant of $5,000 to Treasure C oast Hospice as seed money for the program. "F or many in hospice care, their pets offer unconditional love, comfort and companionship at a time when it's needed most," Tr easure Coast Hospice CEO Louis Benson said. "O ur mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive, high-quality care to our patients and those who share their lives, and now that includes the family's pets." U nder the program, trained Pet Peace of Mind volunteers provide pets of hospice patients with transportation to veterinarians and groomers, regular exercise dog walking, kitty litter hygiene and delivery of pet food. The program also covers basic veterinary care. It began operation in Martin C ounty in October and is expected to expand to St. L ucie County in early 2012. In addition to the Fur Seasons Resort, Treasure Coast H ospice has partnered with Ja son White, owner of Port S alerno Animal Hospital, who serves as consulting veterinarian, and with the H umane Society of the Treasure Coast, which has provided program planners with extensive expertise and training resources. P ampered pooches will strike their best poses at the P up-arazzi canine fashion show and parade from 10 a.m. to noon on Jan. 21. P hotographers will snap photos throughout the event, and afterward, the pictures will be available for download from the Treasure C oast Hospice website at www.TCHospice.org/pupara zzi-photos. Animals will also compete for best-dressed, best lookalike and, of course, best in show. C elebrities assisting in the announcing and judging include Tim Luke and Greg St r ahm, hosts of HGTV's "C ash in the Attic," and Stuart salon and day spa owner Linda LaVelle. R egistration for Puparazzi is now open at www.TCHospice.org/pupar azzi for a contribution of $20 for each dog and no charge for the accompanying human entourage. Of course, this is an exclusive event: attendance is limited to 100 dogs. Tr easure Coast Hospice is a nonprofit community organization of caring professionals and dedicated volunteers whose mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive, high-quality care for patients and those who share their lives in St. Lucie, Martin and O keechobee counties.

MARTIN COUNTY Last y ear, Martin County Coach Jo hn Leon was just being introduced to the Martin C ounty-South Fork rivalry. One year later, Leon finds himself a perfect 3-0 against the Tigers' crosstown rivals. Ma r tin County rode a dominant defensive effort en route to a 50-27 victory ov er South Fork last Friday night at the Don Wallen A thletics Complex. "I got baptized last year in that," Leon said about the rivalry. "I kind of didn't know what the hysteria was. But I really prepared for this and made sure that our guys were ready to play." The Tigers (4-2, 3-1 district) forced 28 turnovers, including 20 in the first half alone. Losing its outside shooters to graduation, Leon said his team is playing a new style of ball" that includes lower scoring games, but hardnosed defense. "C omparing the two teams, we don't have those outside shooters we had last year," he said. "But I think our defensive pressure has increased. We're giving up less points. It's a different style of ball. We may have some 50, 40 games, but if we can hold people down, I think this is going to be a new formula that works." J ustin Simmons led the T igers with 14 points and also had three slam dunks that had the crowd on their feet at Martin County. Trey Graham had 11 points. The Bulldogs (1-4, 1-2 district) just weren't able to get into a rhythm offensively from the beginning, struggling to get a handle on Martin County's defensive pressure. Trailing 1610 after the first quarter, the margin of deficit would only increase. "T heir pressure hurt us," B ulldogs Coach Tommy S wager said, "but we had a lot of series of events on our side that hurt us attacking the pressure." The score was 31-16 heading into halftime, but a 3-point third quarter deflated any hope of a comeback, as the Bulldogs scored just 11 points in the second half. S outh Fork, which is dealing with the loss of seven starters to graduation, started two freshmen and the youth showed in its play. The Bulldogs also lost its leading scorer Byron Pr essley, who had 6 points early, to a hamstring injury. He did not return and is expected to miss two to three weeks. "W e struggled," Swager said. Br yan Wilson led the B ulldogs with 7 points. B lake Lucky added 5 points. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 16, 2011 Martin County B9 Charos StoreG allery & Giftshop3291-B NE Indian River Dr. € Jensen Beach, FL charo@charostore.com(Where Jensen Beach Blvd. meets Indian River Drive) 772-934-6560ART GALLERY€ Oil painting by Charo Stewart € Individual or small classes € Unique handmade gifts for any occasionART CLASSESWITHCHARO760279 760290 We Service &Repair All Foreign &Domestic Vehicles1410 SE OCEAN BLVD. €STUART € 283-2227HOURS: MON.-FRI. 7AM 5PM / SATURDAY 7AM NOONW ebsite: AGrecoAuto.comW ere a family owned &operated business with a reputation for outstanding customer service, quality repairs and competitive pricing.

When it's not the wind it's the rain, or both. Tough conditions have plagued our area for what seems to be the last few months. W elcome to winter in south F lorida. He re on the Treasure C oast, this is the time of y ear for tournament sail fishing. Top captains from north and south compete in some of the most prestigious tournaments our area has to offer and these guys are serious. M ost recent tournaments include the Finest Kind Q uickie, Pirate's Cove Classic, and as I write this r eport, the Stuart Sailfish Club Light Tackle Tournament. The most recent Pirates Co ve tournament yielded 373 sailfish releases from 28 boats over a three-day span (in 6to 9-foot seas, none the less), now that's a lot of fish. Just to give you an idea, 120 ballyhoo and 200 mullet r igged are enough bait for these guys for one day. They start around four in the morning and most don't finish up until 10 p.m. For the majority of the winter season, they live and breathe sailfish and it shows. No w, despite the wind and rain, river fishing has continued to stay consistent. Trout season is closed through Jan. 1, so of course, y ou can't keep them off the hook, and yes the redfish are everywhere. H ad a few kayak anglers in this week, and Little Mud Cr eek was the place to get out of the wind. They r eported trout in great numbers on soft rubber baits and top water plugs, and slammed the redfish. Av ocado red glitter was the color of choice, with an 1/8 ounce jig head. Wo r king the docks on the w est side of the river has produced redfish and trout as well, when the wind allows. Plenty of jacks, blues and ladyfish to bend the r ods, as well. S nook anglers your time is r unning out! Dec. 15 marks the end of snook season for this year. Typically, the harder the wind blows, the better the fishing. One and a half-ounce buck tails and bomber plugs will all produce bites. Pick and bridge, put the foul weather gear on and go catch a fish. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

rar ely afford, said Denise B elizar, the centers marketing manager. Thats why the nonprofit is collecting these items this holiday season. In addition to a food drive to help ensure the areas seniors have enough to eat, the group also wants to ensure they have the products they need for daily hygiene. Lotions, shaving cream, cologne, perfume are often a luxury for them, so its nice for them to receive around the holidays, Ms. Belizar said. F or many seniors, food is in short supply, and they cant afford separate meals for their pets. This leads them to share their own food, risking their health by eating too little, or sometimes choosing to buy food for themselves and pets before purchasing medicine. C ouncil on Aging officials want to use this holiday drive to stock the organizations emergency pantry, which offers assistance to clients rationing food. As temperatures drop, the group also wants blankets and bedding for seniors who cant afford to make the necessary changes to adapt to the changes in the weather. The council, the countys longest-standing organization dedicated to serving seniors, also operates the Me als on Wheels program, which delivers hot meals to homebound residents. I ts services and programs, including an adult day program, care management, caregiver support and inhome services, allow seniors to live independently in their own homes. It is accepting donations for the holiday food and supply drive at the Kane C enter, its Stuart-based headquarters, located at 900 S.E. Salerno Road.

The formula divides the number of students graduating within four years with a diploma by the number entering ninth grade for the first time four years earlier. It does not take into account students who take the GED or general education development test. Mar tin Countys rate places it among the top-tier districts, second to Gulf C ounty, where 95.7 percent of 139 students graduated. In Mar tin County, the calculation included 1,343 students. The results were also a r ecord performance for the district, which saw its rate increase from 94.9 percent, said spokeswoman Cathy Br ennan. Area schools also outpaced the states average of 80.1 percent. O ur entire community should be extremely proud of our all-time high graduation rate of 95.2 percent, said Superintendent Nancy Kline. Graduating on time, within four years of entering high school is vital to our students future success in college or the workplace.

T wo leaders of the association, Lorraine Cardarelli and Doris Medwin, set up a festive Thanksgiving tree in the Pipers Landing clubhouse to prompt their fellow members to give. The tree was decorated with tags that members could fill out to provide a donation to House of Hope. The little tree turned out to be a big success, as the drive, which lasted throughout November, raised $2,130.

The Pipers Landing Yacht & Country Club in Palm City, is a year-round supporter of H ouse of Hope. Throughout the year, boxes are set up in the locker rooms to collect food donations. The collection this year added up to more than 700 pounds of food, or the equivalent of about 550 meals.

The arrest occurred after deputies responded to complaints from neighbors about a noise coming from a r esidence, according to a press release. The Eagle Marsh Country Club Homeowners Association filed the complaint after having received several complaints from residents regarding noise associated with a pool pump at the residence. They stated that the pump would run continuously for days at a time, disturbing the enjoyment of their property and affecting their peace, quiet and serenity, the press r elease said. D eputies arrived at the house and found the door partly open, but no one r esponded to attempts to make contact, the press r elease said. C oncerned about the safety of the occupants, deputies entered the house and found jars of marijuana in the kitchen area and a marijuana grow operation inside a second floor bedr oom. After obtaining a search warrant, deputies found 40 marijuana plants and 69 grams of marijuana, valued at $2,000, the press release said.

C ongratulations to him for opposing a law that is reminiscent of Nazi Germany, where people were encouraged to rat out anyone they knew for any reason. There have always been rogue cops and no doubt always will be, but we should do all we can to discourage them. My question to the North Palm Beach Police Benevolent Association is, why do you focus on protecting a rogue cop instead of protecting the citizen taxpayer against his abuse? Whatever happened to to serve and protect?Re:happy holidays rantIn r esponse to last weeks rant on Dec. 2 regarding happy holidays? This individual (purposely quoted) ranted Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land and trying to convince all of us to say happy holidays rather than merry Christmas. C orrect me if Im wrong, but Christmas is in December, is it not? When do people shop for presents for Christmas? (Having been in retail for more than eight years, I should know the answer to this one). Toward the middle of November through the day before Christmas, right? Do you really think Christmas is the only holiday during that time? Im sure you dont because Im sure you have heard of the other holidays during this time such as H anukkah. Not to mention the others such as St. Lucia Da y, K wanzaa and the Chinese New Year. M aybe you assume everyone in this state (or maybe even country) are Christian and because they are all Christian, they celebrate Christmas. Well, you know what happens when one assumes, do you not? Lets say you did assume this. That would be a pretty incorrect (and foolish) assumption because, as a 30-year old man, originally from New York, living in Florida for 12 y ears, being in school in both states, and working in retail and other jobs in this state, Ive seen many other individuals besides ones who are Christian and celebrate Christmas. I also have a couple of Jewish friends and Jewish customers within my own business. Do these individuals celebrate Christmas? No, they celebrate what their religion believes in, which is Hanukkah. W ould you really greet a person you have never met before with, Have a merry Christmas? That would be fine if you were directing that toward me. However, if my friend was near and you also directed it to him, not only he, but I would become pretty offensive. Why? Because my friend is J ewish, thats why, and he celebrates Hanukkah. He should have been greeted with a Happy Hanukkah because thats the holiday this individual celebrates. Or, if you dont know what holiday he celebrates, he should be greeted by the default happy holidays instead, to prevent any offensiveness and selfish error on your part. O h, and while we are at it, lets not forget about wishing the pagans around here a happy Saturnalia, which is their holiday between Dec. 17-25. What was that? Dec. 25? Thats right. If it werent for the lovely pagans (who are still around us, closer than you may think) there would probably have been no such thing as Christmas (birth of J esus Christ) on Dec. 25. And just in case you didnt know, Jesus wasnt actually born on Dec. 25. Ill let you do some research yourself and figure the rest of the story out such as with the origins of the Christmas tree, mistletoe, presents and last but not least, Santa Claus. Ill give you a small hint: its all in the holy Bible. So to conclude, I believe the reverse of what you ranted has taken place here; the Scrooge is on the prowl throughout the land again trying to convince narrow-minded folks like yourself to say merry Christmas instead of saying happy holidays to others such as my friends and customers, who are Jewish, Pagan, etc. just so they continue to get pushed aside and ignored, while all of the narrowminded folks around them spread their wonderful joy of celebrating Christmas, which, according to your rant, is the only holiday during December! And, for the record, I was brought up Catholic but because of this (people like yourself who dont believe in an individuals freedom of religion and beliefs) and other r easons not worth mentioning here, I have stripped away my beliefs and ties with any religion a long time ago. I guess you can say, Im open minded when it comes to the many religions out there but closed minded when it comes to having faith and belief in one or any spirit for that matter. Now, to you and everyone else who reads this paper, have a very happy holiday!Another kind of fraudP IP fraud works both ways. Drivers with Medicare and supplemental health insurance cannot collect on a PIP claim because the bills are paid. This is the worst kind of fraud, since it is government mandated on seniors who are least able to pay. I suppose the insurance companies would say we need the income from non-claimants to cover the cost of fraudulent claims. Not fair! A solution would be to require drivers to show Medicare and supply insurance cards with license, registration and auto insurance during traffic stops. Editors note: The state department of financial services r esponds:Although it is true that some of the coverage can be the same that is provided by PIP and Medicare,there are substantial differences. PI P is primary over all types of insurance,except workers compensation.PIP can also pay for certain benefits not provided by Medicare. F or instance,if you are injured in an auto accident and things that you used to do around the house for yourself, you are no longer able to do,PIP can reimburse you if you have to pay someone to perform these duties.This is called r eplacement services.Examples can be cooking,cleaning, mowing the grass,etc. P IP also includes a $5,000 death benefit if you are killed in an auto accident.Neither of these would be covered by Me dicare. There are a couple of options to reduce the PIP premium: insured consumers may also elect a deductible for PIP of $250,$500,$1,000 or $2,000. They can exclude work loss benefits if they are no longer working. E ither of these two elections should reduce the PIP premium.The elections can apply to the named insured only or the named insured and resident relatives,depending on what the insured chooses.However,before reducing or eliminating any coverage,we recommend an individual talk to their agent first.The insured must sign a form to reduce this coverage.S ymbol of libertyO ur flag is the symbol of love of liberty.Our flag stands for duty, honor, country, sacrifice and freedom.

There is however, a way to manage your passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Lets start at the beginning, the computer log-in screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password unless you have set it up for automatic log in. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. People dont want to be bothered entering their password every time they turn the computer on, so the system gets set up without it. Su re, its convenient, but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all your stuff. M any people choose to go this route thinking, Hey, Im the only one who uses this machine so I dont need it asking for a password every time. Bu t if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If its a desktop machine the argument seems a little more valid, but it wont protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the Internet). If y our machine is connected to the network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. Weak passwords may be easy to r emember, but they are often short dictionary words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. P asswords such as God, monkey, or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember, but they are also the first things that these password cracking utilities will try. Thats why many sites (and programs) insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. MonK ey!387 is a hell of a lot harder for someone to crack than just monkey. Su re, it may be a little more inconvenient but using a w eak password will just give y ou a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is using one password for everything. The reasoning for this one is, Well, I cant remember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem! I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows log in, email, etc. is convenient, but a problem can arise if your password does get cracked. It s common practice for hackers to try that same username and password pair everywhere. It may be a bit inconvenient, but using a different password for every site is a lot safer than using one password everywhere. Earlier in this column I mentioned there is a free solution that solves these issues. Open your browser and pull up www.keepass.com. Keepass is a free (open source) program that will allow you to store and manage all of y our passwords in one place so you dont have to r ely on post it notes all over y our desk. Use Keepass to create unique strong passwords for all of your sites and you wont need to sacrifice security for convenience.

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.For the last 10 or 15 y ears, Ive subscribed to an online service, The Daily Motivator, which sends me a short email every morning except Sunday. Its not r eligious, although it does incorporate advice which can be found in all of the different religions. I like it because it helps to kick my day off positively. In fact I share it with some friends, family and employees those who I think would enjoy it. This morning there was a phrase that inspired this column, Without judgment as to whether it is difficult or easy, popular or unpopular, do what you know is right. I highlighted this phrase before I forwarded it. My last column was entitled The dealer fee, r evisited. If youre a new r eader or if you missed my last column, please read it before you read further. (V isit www.EarlStewartOnC ars.com.) Mo re than one-third of the new and used cars I sell now are sold over the I nternet. As you know, online sales are surging for all products and will soon dwarf sales from brick and mortar stores. Prospective customers surf the web to r esearch which specific car they want to buy and then they contact various dealers via email to find out who will offer them the best price. I wrote another column entitled The Internet offers the lowest price for a car. The reason the I nternet offers the lowest price is because car dealers have only one chance to sell you a car when you contact them online. You can shop a dozen car dealers online in less time than it takes to visit one car dealership in person. Each dealer knows that if his price is higher than one of the other dealers, he loses the sale. The big problem I used to encounter was the infamous dealer fee. I dont charge a dealer fee because I believe it is unfair and deceptive. I would quote my best price, but the other dealers would usually beat it because they could add hundreds of even thousands to the price they quoted our prospective customer. To solve my problem, I mystery shopped all of my completion and learned the amount of their dealer fees. Now whenever a prospective customer asks me for my best prices on a specific car via email, I always include a list of the dealer fees that all of my competitors charge on top of that price that they quote this same customer. This enables the customer to make an informed decision on who really has the lowest price. W ithout this information, a customer would pay, on average, about $900 more. This is the average dealer fee in my market. S ome are well more than $1,000. If you would like to see how I do this, click on www.EarlStewartToyota.co m and then click on r equest a quote on the left. Ive been informing my prospective customers of what the other dealers add in the form of their dealer fee to the prices they quote for over two years. Before I began doing this, I discussed it with two Toyota r epresentatives who were r esponsible for dealer sales in my market. I did this because I knew that the other dealers would be upset about this, even though I was doing what was best, not only for me, but for Toyota buyers. Both of these Toyota representatives told me that they thought I was doing the r ight thing. A couple of weeks ago, another Toyota representative told me he thought I should stop disclosing the amount of the dealer fee for other Toyota dealers but that there was no problem if I disclosed the dealer fee amount for non-Toyota dealers. When I asked why, he said I was disparaging other Toyota dealers by re vealing their dealer fees. Of course, I responded, How can the truth or a fact be disparaging? I still dont have an answer to that question. The Toyota r epresentative cited the Toy ota Dealer Advertising Co venant, TDAC, as authority for his request to stop what I was doing. The TDAC is a contract that all Toy ota dealers must sign that establishes what dealers can ethically and legally advertise. Violations lead to huge fines which can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. I told him that the TDAC applied only to advertising, not a salesman responding to a customers request for a price on a specific car. I said that if Toyota wanted me keep other dealers dealer fees secret from my I nternet customers, it would follow that I must do the same for customers who phone or come into my dealership asking for pricing information. As I write this article, Im waiting for clarification from Toyota on all of the above. I have received a written notice from the independent company in Bir mingham, Ala., that administers the TDACDo what you know is right, even when its not popular ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A9

However, when I called the company supervisor last week, I was told a letter had been mailed to Toyota Motor S ales in California asking for a ruling on whether this issue was covered by the TDAC. The supervisor told me I would be notified as soon as a r esponse was received. As of this moment, Ive heard nothing. H opefully, now you can understand my title to this article, Do what you know is right and the quote from my Daily M otivator, Without judgment as to whether it is difficult or easy, popular or unpopular, do what you know is right. It s very difficult for me, as a Toyota dealer, to oppose Toyota and taking this stance does not make me very popular with Toy ota but I did what I know is right.

In both public surveys and at the ballot box, Americans have rejected the laws r equirement that everyone must purchase health insurance. The majority feels it is gross overreach for government to tell us what to do. N ext, citizens must buy broccoli?Citizens must buy domestic automobiles?The system is out of balance when nine unelected lawyers can tell us what to do.What would happen?So what would happen if America decided that Mr. C ains sex life was none of our business?What would happen if America chose Mr. Cains economic plan? What would happen if the power of picking winners and losers in Washington was substantially diluted by the 9-9-9 Plan? What would happen if America decided that a successful mainstream businessman knows more about what makes a small business successful enough to grow and provide jobs to Americans? What would happen if word got out that it is small businesses that employ most Americans and Mr. Cains knowledge would be very crucial in getting middle class America back to work? What would happen if America realized the same successful business executive skills that Mr. Cain used to turn failing businesses around are the same skills that are needed in the oval office? What would happen if America realized the career politicians do not know anything about main street economics and the incompetent career politicians are r esponsible for this countrys recession? What would happen if America decided to vote in a common-sense, problemsolving successful businessman into the oval office? What is a president if not the CEO of America? Editors note: Mr.Cain has suspended his presidential campaign.More on Mr. CainEv eryone says they are for the common man, outside the political class. It is just empty rhetoric from our leaders. Mr. Cain is the commonman, the regular guy who lives the American dream, which says anyone can succeed if they work hard. The political establishment and the media have treated this man so shabbily. Is it any wonder Americans have such a low opinion of bothgroups?They have earned our scorn. I will be writing Herman C ains name in on the primary ballot.If we are to take back America and make her prosperous, again, we need a Washington outsider with main street business expertise.That man is Herman Cain. Mr. Cains tax policy r emoves Washingtons propensity to pick winners and losers through a complicated and corrupt tax code. The 9-9-9 plan is fair to everyone,transparent and flexible enough to empower blighted communities. Mr. C ains policy is to fix government programs and make them work in a fiscally sane way, while providing for optimal service as originally mandated. Mr. Cain does not use the corrosive and divisive political weapons of class warfare and race baiting. His political and moral visionelevates all America andhe will unite us. I urge all America not to settle for anyone but Obama.Obama has to go. H is policies of unfair regulation, fiscally insane health care mandatesand unjust taxation on our small businesses and small banks is killing the middle class. It is the middle class that runs the economic engine of America. M ost of us work for small business and Obamanomics have declared war on us.We need a commonsense, problem solver who knows how main street business succeeds and provides jobs for all Americans. We need an outsider to clean up the stink of corr uption and incompetence.We need a leader, willing to listen to the expertsand able to makethe decisions that always keeps Americas best interest first.

Ihave always wondered what makes a master teacher. In simplest terms, what makes some teachers so beloved by their students and others, not so much? Is it a question of personality? Of knowledge? Of procedure? Of some intangible quality? Is becoming a master teacher a trainable talent? Over the years, I have given this question a lot of thought. As an educator who has done a fair amount of teaching and supervising, I find it an interesting topic not only as an intellectual exercise, but as a practical one. We have all had master teachers whom we fondly r emember, who made us want to be in their classes, even if the subject taught was not our favorite. We have also all experienced teachers who somehow made us dread their classes. U nfortunate, but true. I dispense with the notion that master teachers are created by institutions conferring education degrees upon them. A degree that says you are an educator is simply the end of a process that states you are qualified to instruct and know the parameters and mechanics of how to be an educator in a certain topic or topics. However, that in itself does not make you a master teacher. I also dispense with the notion that years of experience make a master teacher. Although experience is an integral component of the learning process an educator undergoes throughout his or her career, it does not, by itself, constitute a measure of effectiveness or ability. I firmly believe that experience makes educators better, but experience by itself does not make a master teacher. After many years of observation, I think there are three key factors that make a teacher great and memorable, a master teacher. F irst, the teacher must be fully versed in the subject matter he teaches. Second, the teacher must be able to effectively (and interestingly) communicate said subject matter. Third, the teacher must be able to connect with the students he teaches. A master teacher has an inherent ability to connect and put himself at the service of his students. S tudents recognize when their teacher is fully invested in the material being taught and fully invested in them. M aster teachers make their connections to students in myriad ways, whether humorous, intellectual, emotional or something else, but it is that ability to connect that allows teachers to communicate to students they are the most important things in the world to them. There is no student who can possibly reject that connection. It is an inherent human instinct to gravitate to those we believe love us or will care for us. Master teachers convey that feeling. M any teachers are authorities in their subject matter, but not as many have figured out how to impart that knowledge with z eal and clarity. Engaging students, making them want to learn and making a connection is only one piece of the puzzle for a master teacher. Taking that connection and filling it with instruction and information that will last a lifetime is a task of surgical precision. A master teacher brings that task to a zenith of perfection. My observations cannot be turned into a formula, but every master teacher I have worked with, been friends with, learned from and observed has always had the qualities I have outlined. They are the qualities I model my teaching on and the markers that guide me forward professionally.

The 11th annual event is set for Feb. 4-5.Popular art festival returns for 11th yearMARTIN COUNTY A juried art show in Hobe S ound is set to bring about 50,000 people to Martin C ounty next spring. H obe Sound Festival of the Arts, slated for Feb. 4-5, will feature about 150 artists selected by an independent panel of judges. The artists were among hundreds of applicants and their work covers a range of media and perspectives. Their pieces include paintings, life-size sculptures, photography, ceramics, handmade jewelry, collages, mixed-media pieces, glass designs and woodwork. B ecause its a juried show, the producer, Howard Alan, was very selective, not just to finetune the quality of the art work, but to make sure many media are represented, said AnaBelle Dweck, publicist, Howard Alan Ev ents. H obe Sound has hosted the art festival for a decade, and next year will be the shows 11th anniversary. The Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce hosts the event, which attracts locals and visitors from across the r egion, state and country. The show allows attendees and collectors a chance to speak with the artists, discussing the work on display and pieces available for purchase. Y oull see quite an eclectic mix, said Ms. Dweck. The prices are definitely suited to all price ranges. Yo u ll find something as inexpensive as $20, and then a sculpture priced into the thousands and thousands of dollars, so it appeals to people at all levels. Youll find people there looking for an interesting piece, seasoned collectors and other buyers looking for new talent. The festival will span four blocks, starting at Bridge R oad and continuing south on AIA.

The annual charity gala was held at the Cahan Estate in Sewalls Point on Nov. 12. The Venetianthemed event featured 450 patrons and r aised $900,000, which will be used to purchase an inpatient radiation therapy suite at Martin Memorial M edical Center. The project will enable physicians to provide critical radiation therapy for cancer patients who must be hospitalized. W e are extremely pleased to partner with Martin M emorial in providing our community with access to exceptional health care services, said Merle Ginsburg, Chrysanthemum Ball committee co-chairwoman. This will have a tremendous impact on the lives of countless Treasure Coast r esidents. Among the sponsors who made the 2011 Chrysanthemum Ball possible include: Ed and Joan McGowan; Mr. and Mrs. Barry Ginsburg; M etCare; Humana; Careplus; Betsy Herold; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas OMalley; R obert and Carol Weissman and Crary Buchanan, attorneys at law. S ince its inception, the Chrysanthemum Ball has r aised more than $12.5 million. In that time, the event has earned a reputation for providing high-quality entertainment, fine cuisine and an energetic atmosphere. I ts committee of more than 30 volunteers has consistently created an event that is engaging to those who attend, but also is integrally important to Martin M emorials mission of providing health care access to the community. P ast Chrysanthemum B alls raised funds for technologies such as a PET/CT scanner, two cardiac catheterization labs, a 64slice CT scanner, a digital mammography unit, an interventional radiology suite and equipment enhancements for nurses at bedsides. An endowment was also created that will fund patient-care projects in the future, as well. This event has left a lasting impression on the Treasure Coast, said Betsy Her old, Chrysanthemum B all committee co-chairwoman. The Chrysanthemum B all exemplifies how the community and a healthcare provider can enhance the quality of care through philanthropy.

This event promises to be great fun, said Drue Pollack, co-owner of the resort. I t s a great way to spread the word about Treasure C oast Hospices new pet program to dog lovers throughout the Treasure C oast. P et Peace of Mind is a groundbreaking, national program developed and funded by Banfield Charitable Trust that aims to keep pets together with hospice patients and their families. The trust contributed a grant of $5,000 to Treasure C oast Hospice as seed money for the program. F or many in hospice care, their pets offer unconditional love, comfort and companionship at a time when its needed most, Tr easure Coast Hospice CEO Louis Benson said. O ur mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive, high-quality care to our patients and those who share their lives, and now that includes the familys pets. U nder the program, trained Pet Peace of Mind volunteers provide pets of hospice patients with transportation to veterinarians and groomers, regular exercise dog walking, kitty litter hygiene and delivery of pet food. The program also covers basic veterinary care. It began operation in Martin C ounty in October and is expected to expand to St. L ucie County in early 2012. In addition to the Fur Seasons Resort, Treasure Coast H ospice has partnered with Ja son White, owner of Port S alerno Animal Hospital, who serves as consulting veterinarian, and with the H umane Society of the Treasure Coast, which has provided program planners with extensive expertise and training resources. P ampered pooches will strike their best poses at the P up-arazzi canine fashion show and parade from 10 a.m. to noon on Jan. 21. P hotographers will snap photos throughout the event, and afterward, the pictures will be available for download from the Treasure C oast Hospice website at www.TCHospice.org/pupara zzi-photos. Animals will also compete for best-dressed, best lookalike and, of course, best in show. C elebrities assisting in the announcing and judging include Tim Luke and Greg Str ahm, hosts of HGTVs C ash in the Attic, and Stuart salon and day spa owner Linda LaVelle. R egistration for Puparazzi is now open at www.TCHospice.org/pupar azzi for a contribution of $20 for each dog and no charge for the accompanying human entourage. Of course, this is an exclusive event: attendance is limited to 100 dogs.

MARTIN COUNTY Last y ear, Martin County Coach Jo hn Leon was just being introduced to the Martin C ounty-South Fork rivalry. One year later, Leon finds himself a perfect 3-0 against the Tigers crosstown rivals. Mar tin County rode a dominant defensive effort en route to a 50-27 victory ov er South Fork last Friday night at the Don Wallen A thletics Complex. I got baptized last year in that, Leon said about the rivalry. I kind of didnt know what the hysteria was. But I really prepared for this and made sure that our guys were ready to play. The Tigers (4-2, 3-1 district) forced 28 turnovers, including 20 in the first half alone. Losing its outside shooters to graduation, Leon said his team is playing a new style of ball that includes lower scoring games, but hardnosed defense. C omparing the two teams, we dont have those outside shooters we had last year, he said. But I think our defensive pressure has increased. Were giving up less points. Its a different style of ball. We may have some 50, 40 games, but if we can hold people down, I think this is going to be a new formula that works. J ustin Simmons led the T igers with 14 points and also had three slam dunks that had the crowd on their feet at Martin County. Trey Graham had 11 points. The Bulldogs (1-4, 1-2 district) just werent able to get into a rhythm offensively from the beginning, struggling to get a handle on Martin Countys defensive pressure. Trailing 1610 after the first quarter, the margin of deficit would only increase. T heir pressure hurt us, B ulldogs Coach Tommy S wager said, but we had a lot of series of events on our side that hurt us attacking the pressure. The score was 31-16 heading into halftime, but a 3-point third quarter deflated any hope of a comeback, as the Bulldogs scored just 11 points in the second half. S outh Fork, which is dealing with the loss of seven starters to graduation, started two freshmen and the youth showed in its play. The Bulldogs also lost its leading scorer Byron Pr essley, who had 6 points early, to a hamstring injury. He did not return and is expected to miss two to three weeks. W e struggled, Swager said. Br yan Wilson led the B ulldogs with 7 points. B lake Lucky added 5 points. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 16, 2011 Martin County B9 Charos StoreG allery & Giftshop3291-B NE Indian River Dr. Jensen Beach, FL charo@charostore.com(Where Jensen Beach Blvd. meets Indian River Drive) 772-934-6560ART GALLERY Oil painting by Charo Stewart Individual or small classes Unique handmade gifts for any occasionART CLASSESWITHCHARO We Service &Repair All Foreign &Domestic Vehicles1410 SE OCEAN BLVD.

When its not the wind its the rain, or both. Tough conditions have plagued our area for what seems to be the last few months. W elcome to winter in south F lorida. He re on the Treasure C oast, this is the time of y ear for tournament sail fishing. Top captains from north and south compete in some of the most prestigious tournaments our area has to offer and these guys are serious. M ost recent tournaments include the Finest Kind Q uickie, Pirates Cove Classic, and as I write this r eport, the Stuart Sailfish Club Light Tackle Tournament. The most recent Pirates Co ve tournament yielded 373 sailfish releases from 28 boats over a three-day span (in 6to 9-foot seas, none the less), now thats a lot of fish. Just to give you an idea, 120 ballyhoo and 200 mullet r igged are enough bait for these guys for one day. They start around four in the morning and most dont finish up until 10 p.m. For the majority of the winter season, they live and breathe sailfish and it shows. Now, despite the wind and rain, river fishing has continued to stay consistent. Trout season is closed through Jan. 1, so of course, y ou cant keep them off the hook, and yes the redfish are everywhere. H ad a few kayak anglers in this week, and Little Mud Cr eek was the place to get out of the wind. They r eported trout in great numbers on soft rubber baits and top water plugs, and slammed the redfish. Av ocado red glitter was the color of choice, with an 1/8 ounce jig head. Wor king the docks on the w est side of the river has produced redfish and trout as well, when the wind allows. Plenty of jacks, blues and ladyfish to bend the r ods, as well. S nook anglers your time is r unning out! Dec. 15 marks the end of snook season for this year. Typically, the harder the wind blows, the better the fishing. One and a half-ounce buck tails and bomber plugs will all produce bites. Pick and bridge, put the foul weather gear on and go catch a fish. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.
