B eneficiaries of the fundraiser are the family of the late Brian Simpson a Ve ro B each resident shot and murdered in his home in No vember when he walked in on two men burglarizing his home his widow Kristen, and two children, Samantha, 15, and Scott, 14. Scott and his family were w ell-known in baseball circles in the area, as Scott has played for the Gifford Middle School baseball team, the Vero Beach J unior Baseball League and the Treasure Coast Hurricanes travel baseball team, so it seemed fitting to help and support the family in a sport that Mr. Simpson loved and shared with his family, said Larry Lawson, coach of the Tr easure Coast Hurricanes 14and under travel team. B aseball players between 13 and 17 are invited to come out and play three innings of baseball to support a fellow baseball family that is hurting emotionally and financially r ight now, and do it in an area r ich in baseball history such as Vero Beach, Mr. Lawson said. The marathon baseball fundraiser will take place at 9 a.m. on Jan. 15 at Bob Summers Field on 3451 Indian River Drive East, Vero Beach. P layers can pre-register for the fundraising event now and pay $15. Same-day registration will be available on a limited basis at $5 per inning as available, a press release said. The idea for the fundraiser came from a teammate, Jordan Mazzerella. The Vero B each community has jumped onboard to help out, Mr. Lawson said. This is an unbelievable community effort. I'm impressed and touched at the ov erwhelming support for the S impson family. It really tells y ou something about the good out there," he said. In addition to the player fee, funds raised at concessions and during raffles throughout the day will support the cause. S pecial guests are scheduled to visit the field during the event, including Jarrod S altalamacchia, starting catcher for the Boston Red So x and former pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ron P erranowski, and will be available to sign autographs, Mr. Lawson said. "B r ian was a great dad, and loved and supported his son in every possible way. They are a great family and we wanted to do something for them," he said. All proceeds raised for this will go to the Simpson family, every dime," Mr. Lawson said. Fr iends of the Simpson family will also hold a 5k race on Jan. 14 at South Beach Pa r k. Pre-registration is available at Runners Depot at 46 21st St., Vero Beach.

TREASURE COAST The Electronic Security Association is accepting applications for its 2012 y outh scholarship program, which will award $10,000 in scholarships to two children of active duty police officers and firefighters. The first-place winner will receive $7,500 to put toward a college education and the second-place winner will receive $2,500. S ince the ESA youth scholarship program was created in 1996, the association and its affiliated chartered chapters have donated more than $300,000 in scholarship funds to children of police officers and firefighters. The men and women of our country who serve as police officers or firefighters are heroes and national treasures," said Dom D'Ascoli ESA president. The work they do in protecting our communities can never be appreciated enough. This scholarship is one of the ways we can thank our deserving public safety partners." A wards are based on a combination of academic achievement, national test scores, extracurricular participation and an essay. S tudents are awarded up to 25 points for GPA, 30 points for ACT/SAT scores, 25 points for an essay and 20 points for extracurricular activities. Po ints are awarded through a combination of earned academic points and judging by committee members. To be eligible to apply for the scholarship, students must be between 15 and 20 years old, a graduating high school senior and have been accepted for admission to an accredited college or university. F or the second consecutive year, homeschooled students will be eligible to compete. All applicants must provide a transcript with a calculated cumulative GPA through 11th grade to be eligible. Each eligible student must have a father, mother or natural guardian who is an active duty, fulltime police officer, firefighter or volunteer firefighter. S tudents will be r equired to write an essay titled, "What it means to me to have my parent or guardian involved in securing our community." S tudents residing in a state with a participating ESA chartered chapter must enter through their state-level scholarship program to be considered for the national awards. W inners from state chapters are automatically considered for the national scholarship. Students who reside in a state without an ESA chapter or in a non-participating state will submit their as the River of Grass. The complex system of interdependent ecosystems includes cypress swamps, estuarine mangrove forests, pine rockland and tropical hardwood hammocks, among other systems. Mr. Perry, who has led the F lorida Oceanographic Society for nearly 34 years, spearheads the group's mission of inspiring environmental stewardship of Florida's coastal ecosystems through education and research. He has a long history of participation in protecting area waterways and r esources. Among his roles is the vice chairmanship of the Rivers Coalition, plus a longtime membership and former co-chairman of the Ev erglades Coalition.

The investigation as to how they accomplished that continued weeks later. Mr. Taylor's respite from incarceration didn't occur long, as the next day a Martin County detective spotted a man fitting his description walking down U.S. 1 in Stuart. Mr. Taylor is believed to have gone to a theater and watched a movie during his brief period of freedom. He was convicted of murdering Nester Perez of Vero B each during a 2009 burglary. M eanwhile, authorities in W arren County, Ohio, arrested Mr. Reed after a brief chase on Interstate-75. During his escape, Mr. R eed hid in a vacant house in Sebastian, stole a car and then stole another vehicle in M acon, Ga. He was arrested earlier in the year and charged in connection with the murder of J ames Malone, who owned Ji m' s Automotive in Sebastian.

As of press time, Indian River County authorities had made no arrests in connection with the murder. A uthorities said the death was a homicide, but have r eleased few details beyond that.

P olice discovered the body of Christopher Covington inside the garage. A 3-year-old daughter of Mr. Covington and Ms. Carr ier was found unharmed.Employee accused of murdering attorneyAfter an attorney in St. L ucie County accused one employee of stealing from him, authorities say she and her boyfriend, who was also an employee of the attorney, conspired to murder him. Thomas J. Barnard, the boyfriend, was arrested earlier this year and accused of murdering Ashley Ronald P ollow, the attorney, on Nov. 28, 2010 and then pouring sulfuric acid on his body. An informant told police that Mr. Barnard confessed to the murder after they talked about a book written by O .J. Simpson. In the book, "I f I Did It," Mr. Simpson talked hypothetically about the murders of Nicole Brown S impson, his then ex-wife and Ronald Goldman, her friend. He was acquitted of those murders. In an odd twist involving Mr. Pollow, it was disclosed after his murder, that law enforcement officers had saved Mr. Pollow from possibly being murdered. A man who was charged with killing his mother in Po rt S t. Lucie went to Mr. P ollow's residence and threatened to kill him, accusing him of trying to steal his girlfriend, authorities said. Lawmen, who tracked the man to Mr. Pollow's residence, then arrested him. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 30, 2011 Martin County A5 € Air Conditioning &Heating € Commercial &Residential € Sales Service Installation € Same Day Service No extra charge for 24 Hour Emergency including Nights Weekends Holidays760701Dont be surprised by a cold front 10 YEARSLic. # CAC058508 Insured772-232-1114 EVERYTHING MUST GO!

T eachers and students are under the gun to do all in their power to do well on the FCAT. Parents have witnessed their children living in fear of the coming test day. Florida taxpayers have invested millions to establish this extensive testing program, which is in constant change. No w the state board of education has unanimously approved a tougher scoring system for the FCAT. Bottom line: more students will fail! The idea of each state setting up its own testing program is WRONG! If, however, students are to be evaluated by tests, using a national testing program would be a better choice. F lorida students should be compared to students throughout the nation. Using a national testing program would save millions that are being spent every year to develop the FCAT. The money saved could be used to improve learning in the classroom. F lorida students will be seeking jobs throughout the U nited States and therefore, need to see their performance as it compares with students throughout the country. I feel the FCAT is being used as a political tool to hurt public education. What happens in WashingtonIt 's amazing what happens in Washington. When politicians want to grab credit, they shout from the roof tops. When they want to keep things from us, there is a deathly quiet. Pr esident Obama has decided to stop searching for illegal immigrants. It was a leak that let this information be disclosed to the public. F or years he has dragged his feet concerning illegals but this is the last straw. H alting enforcement of existing statutes flies in the face of the safety and security of law-abiding Americans.Unhappy holidaysP olls show that 95 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas and 84 percent describe themselves as Christians. We were disappointed, therefore, to enter a store and be greeted with "happy holidays." That may be politically correct but we will not be returning to that store.Where are the jobs?Ev en though President Obama promised millions of new jobs when he promoted his multi-million stimulus program, very little was actually accomplished. It cost us a huge amount but we wound up with an astronomical debt. Fo r mer New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson had it right when he said, "My next door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration."K eep the creeps in jailP olice have nabbed a man for stalking. That's not such hot news, but what is astounding is that a background check reveals he had been arrested for stalking other women. He had been arrested four times in less than a month. This creep is being held for identity theft, harassment and related offenses. We expect judges to be fair but strict. W ouldn't it be nice if they would keep repeat offenders in jail?Is it the teachers?This nation is struggling with a public education system in decline and a new study by the American Enterprise I nstitute gives some reasons for our lack of success. There is a significant pay gap between overpaid teachers and lower paid, private-sector workers. It may be hard to believe but the SAT scores of college students majoring in education are far below the average of all other college students. Does this mean teachers are dumber than the others? And, if so, why are teachers getting the highest salaries? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

Miss Janolo appeared earlier before the Martin County Commission asking for a proclamation to protect the Northern Everglades and the Indian River Lagoon. Her next stop was to meet with students at the Environmental Studies Center to talk about her advocacy of her Protect Our Environment' platform. Ms. Janolo has an opportunity to become Miss America this coming January. Happy holidays everybody! 2011 has been a quick year. I can hardly believe 2012 is just a couple days away. If there's one thing I can count on this time of year, it's the inevitable calls I get from people who've been fortunate enough to get a new machine for Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever holiday they celebrate and are puzzled as to how to get all of their "stuff" off of the old machine and onto the new one. M ost people are flabbergasted when they see just how much data has accumulated on their old machine over the years (especially if the machine is six or seven years old.) These files and such tend to grow, and since we usually only access things one file at a time, it's hard to see the big picture and understand just how much data there actually is. So what do we do? What's the best method to use for this type of project? W ell, my favorite way of accomplishing the task r equires a bit of hardware called an external USB hard drive. And one of the benefits of this method is that once all of the data is moved and the new machine is up and running, the external drive can then be used as a backup drive and the computer set up to back up all the data to it every night, a task that anyone who values their data should have set up anyway. No w when I mention an external USB drive, please understand I'm not talking about one of these little 8gigabyte thumb drives that are small enough to hang on your key chain, but an actual external hard drive, with hundreds of gigabytes of storage space. A 250gigabyte external is about the smallest available these days but you can also find terabyte-sized drives (1,000 gigabytes) for under $100. T wo hundred fifty gigabytes is the smallest that I'd r ecommend for this job. OK, so now you have your old machine, your new machine and an external hard drive. What's next? W ell, plug the external drive into the old computer and create a new folder on the external drive. Call the folder "from old" or some other name that you'll be able to recognize and work with and then you are going to want to copy "everything" from the C: drive of the old computer to the "f r om old" folder on the external drive. I recommend (and use myself) a program called "ycopy" available for free from www.download.com (just search for "ycopy" on the download.com page and it will come right up). I recommend ycopy because when it runs into a file that it can't copy (which it will), it makes a note of it and keeps going. The W indows file copy system, on the other hand, will stop leaving you trying to figure out what made it and what didn't. U sually the copy process can take several hours, but that's OK, you want to get everything it can so you don't have to keep going back to the old machine looking for forgotten files. If all goes well the "from old" folder on the external drive y ou should now have a full snapshot of all your data from the old machine. (Y ou can also use this time to set up your new machine if you haven't already). Once the copy process is finished, shut down the old machine and unplug the external drive. Plug the external drive into the new machine and it should show up as a drive in the new computer. The next step is to copy the "from old" folder from the external drive to the desktop of the new machine. Again, the process may take a couple of hours, but the result is you'll have a folder on your desktop that has everything that wasT ransferring old stuff' to new computer COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 11 02 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comMARTINV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

So y ou may want to explore all possible retirement savings vehicles, including a variable annuity. Generally speaking, when saving for retirement, it's a good idea to contribute as much as possible to your individual retirement account and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored r etirement plan. But if yo u' ve fully funded those plans for the year, and you still have some money left to invest, you may want to consider a variable annuity, which offers these benefits: T ax deferred earnings. Y our variable annuity's earnings have the opportunity to grow tax deferred, which means your investment dollars can accumulate faster than if they were placed in an investment on which you paid taxes every y ear. When you eventually make withdrawals, your earnings will be taxed at y our ordinary income tax r ate. (For nonqualified annuities, you won't have to pay additional taxes on the amount you contributed.) There are no tax advantages to investing in a va r iable annuity with qualified money. A variety of investment options. Variable annuities allow individuals to invest in several different professionally managed investments, known as "subaccounts." You can choose the subaccounts that best fit y our risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term objectives. Keep in mind, though, that diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss. No contribution limits. Each year, you can contribute far more to a va r iable annuity than you can to your 401(k) and your IRA. In fact, you can contribute virtually unlimited amounts to your annuity. Pa y out flexibility. A va r iable annuity provides yo u with flexibility in gaining access to your money. You could, for instance, collect a lump sum. But you might find it more advantageous to take y our payments over a specified number of years. Y ou could even choose to r eceive a lifetime income stream. G uaranteed death benefit. When you die, your beneficiary is usually guaranteed the amount originally invested, minus previous withdrawals. Some va r iable annuities offer death benefit options, which may increase the death benefit over time.

You can read his comment and my response by clicking on my Blog, www.EarlStewartOnCars.co m and going to my article, The no-dealer-fee fat lady hasn't sung yet." I've reproduced his posting and my reply below because the comments of this car salesman are very re vealing of what goes on inside the heads of many car sales people today. I often am accused of calling car dealers and car sales people "crooks" or just plain "evil." I certainly don't mean to. I don't believe that most people in the retail auto business are dishonest any more than I believe that about lawyers or politicians. Of course, there are a few that are just plain bad. Amoral" is a better way to describe the mindset of those in the retail car business that causes the huge problem we have today with the way car buyers are treated. A person who is amoral is one who is not admitting of moral distinctions or judgments; neither moral nor immoral. When you read the words of Alex S. below you can see that he does not believe what he does to sell a car is deceptive, immoral or unethical. I'm sure you know others like Alex. If somebody challenges their behavior, it's never their fault. In Alex's case, he blames me and he blames and his customers for the negativity surrounding car dealers and car salesmen. Earl Stewart: Thanks very much for your posting. I'vve chosen to address your posting paragraph by paragraph. First, let me congratulte you for having the courgae, not only to r espond to my blog but not to choose to be anonymous. Y our posting is very interesting because it speaks for most Florida car dealers. As you point out, y ou and most of those employed in the retail auto business are not crooks. A minority are, but the majority are simply assessing the dealer fee because that's the way it's always been done and not taking time out to think why it's bad for the consumer. Alex S.: I work at a dealership in Sawgrass (I won't mention the name because I don't have the authority to). Over the past few days, I have noticed the quantity of my complaints ov er dealer fees have gone up, so I investigated and FINA NC IALJAMIE C HAPOGAS ON CARSEARL STEWART See CHAPOGAS, A8 See S TEWART, A8

While variable annuities do offer some key advantages, there are also some considerations to discuss with your financial advisor before investing. F or one thing, variable annuities are not suitable for everyone. A variable annuity is unquestionably a long-term investment. In fact, you may be assessed a surrender charge if you pull money out of the contract within the first several years after you purchase it. How ever, some variable annuities allow you to withdraw a portion of your investment, such as 10 percent of your purchase payments, without incurring a surrender charge, while others allow full withdrawals. Another point to keep in mind is that if you tap into y our annuity before you r each age 59_, you may be hit with a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty. One final note: A va r iable annuity is just that: variable. The value of y our annuity will go up and down, based on what's happening in the financial markets, and there's no guarantee that y our annuity won't lose principal. Also, variable annuities vary greatly in their terms, features and fees, so before investing, consider shopping around. C onsult with your financial advisor to determine which variable annuity may be appropriate for your needs. U ltimately, though, you may well find that a va r iable annuity may be the final piece to your r etirement income puzzle.

I respect what you are doing and can completely understand what it is that you are doing. I always disclose the dealer fees to my clients during my negotiations, I don't say plus fees, I tell them plus dealer fees of XXX. ES: I'm very glad to hear that my anti dealer fee efforts are spreading around the state. I'm happy to hear that y ou totally disclose the dealer fee to all of your customers. U nfortunately, most salespeople do not. Virtually all salespeople do not use the complete term dealer fee but simply say fees. This lead the customer to believe it is an official fee, federal, state or local. AS: What it boils down to for me is that "profit" is not a dirty word. Dealer fees are an essential part of profit. Car sales are all a game. The customer's goal is to spend as little as possible, whereas my goal is to make as much as possible. If both parties can come to a happy agreement, then it is all for the better. I r ead your previous article and people feel they are being r obbed, that is simply not the point. No salesman has ever held a customer down and made them sign. If you don't like the way we do business then leave. ES: I can't tell you how often I've heard other dealers use the same phrase, "profit is not a dirty word." This phrase is a straw dog just like we don't want government to tell us how to price our cars. My dealership is very profitable and I don't charge the dealer fee. I'm in business to make a profit and I wouldn't be if I thought profit was a dirty word. I'm not crazy about y our description of all car sales being a game. It's the second biggest purchase a customer makes in his life. If it's a game, it's a very serious and important none. Using y our analogy, I only want both teams to be fully informed of the rules of the game, hence full disclosure of the price of the car, which should include everything except tax and tag. This full disclosure should not come after the fact but from the first time a price is quoted in advertising, verbally, on a windshield or sign or over the I nternet. You say no one has ever held a customer down and made him sign. Maybe not literally, but I know of lots of customers who were figuratively "held down." I've talked with elderly widows in their 80s who were kept in a closing office for hours when they asked for their car keys to go home. I also know of customers who don't understand or read English well, y oung unsophisticated and first-time buyers who are uneducated and/or just not very smart who have been taken great advantage of. AS: P eople do not walk into an electronics store and fight about the price they pay for a $5.000 flatscreen TV. They don't walk into the grocery store and argue about the price of a pound of apples. I guess what I am trying to get at is if you are in a comfortable place with a calm attitude the dealer fee should not be a deal breaker for anyone. Talk to the dealer sales associate about it. Be lieve me when I say this, most salespeople don't r eceive compensation from the dealer fee, but I still need to collect it.

an outpouring of support and led to the renaming of a park in honor of Lance Cpl. Justin J. Wilson. C ounty Commissioner Ed Ciampi said his heart broke when he saw Fran and Lance W ilson kiss their son's casket during a private moment at the funeral last spring. The Wilsons were burying their son, 24-year-old Lance Cpl. Wilson, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan's Helmand Pr o vince. Lance Cpl. Wilson was supporting combat operations during Operation Enduring Freedom. That's why the commissioner set out to find a way to memorialize the soldier. Ev entually, the District 5 r epresentative settled on r enaming the Palm City Park where Lance Cpl. Wilson played as a child, in the Ma r ine's honor, and creating a memorial there. Last September, county commissioners approved the idea, and the public park at 2050 S.W. Mapp Road became the Lance Cpl. Justin Wilson M emorial Park. The renaming took place during a ceremony on Jan. 15 that drew area residents, leaders, military groups and supporters. I ndiantown gets enterprise z one designation One of the county's most ru r al communities also had a r enaming of sorts, when I ndiantown got an "enterprise z one" designation, which allows state and county officials to give financial incentives to businesses and residents within the zone. The Florida Department of E conomic Opportunity approved Martin County's application to name I ndiantown a Florida enterprise zone. The state designation means the area will now qualify for programs aimed at encouraging economic growth and investment in distressed geographic areas. The local zone covers a 10square mile area that will benefit from the program for three years, beginning Jan. 1. B each erosion forces multiple closures It was a battle between man and the elements at Bathtub B each. The shoreline there continued to erode, thanks to violent waves and cold weather. Officials repeatedly closed the popular beach this year as a safety precaution. They said rough surf and nearly 9-foot-tall waves this month severely eroded dunes, making the beach dangerous. To help restore the shoreline, engineering crews will transport sand from local mines to Bathtub Reef Beach to reinforce the dune. Last December, county officials closed the beach less than a month after reopening it, because erosion to the area around the lifeguard tower forced staff to move the tower and leave the beach unguarded. W eather threatens sanctuary The animal sanctuary known as MC-2 also struggled against natural erosion. Ma r tin County officials and volunteers commuted to Bird I sland, or MC-2, to plant grasses as part of the final stages to help save the island's coast. The island is among one of the most important nesting areas in South Florida, not only because of the quantity of birds and number of species that make their homes there, but also because it is a sanctuary for many rare and endangered ones. E ighteen species of birds, including about nine that are threatened or endangered, make their home on the 1.6acre spoil island east of S ewall's Point in the Indian River Lagoon. The hundreds of grasses volunteers planted this month will spread their roots quickly to cover the area and trap mangrove seeds to help create new sprouts. Area graduation rates are second highest in state M eanwhile, the school district continued its strong performance, achieving the second highest graduation rate among high-school students, according to information from the Florida Department of Education. A bout 95.2 percent of eligible students in the county graduated. Ma r tin County's rate places it among the top-tier districts, second to Gulf County, 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. Challenger enters school board race A member of the school board would like to see the Ma r tin County School District work to improve its performance. Laurie Gaylord, a 55-yearold listeningand spoken-language specialist, certified auditory-verbal therapist, filed to run for superintendent of schools. Ms. Gaylord, vice chairwoman of the school board, will challenge incumbent N ancy Kline, who has held the post since 2008. R un-off election ushers in new commissioners A run-off election in January pitted an attorney against a financial consultant and a chamber director against a business man. F or 23 years, attorney Eula Clarke made her home in Stuart before entering the political arena. She served as city planner, before running for the Group 5 seat against Kelli G lass. Ms. Clarke won that r ace is now vice mayor. Ms. Glass entered and won a later election and is also a city commissioner. The January run-off also pitted 15-year Stuart resident and businessman Troy M cDonald against Ron Rose, who first moved to the city in 1986 and has long been the driving force behind the popular Pineapple Festival and other Jensen Beach Chamber events. Mr. McDonald won the race and became the new city commissioner. R edistricting proposal could shift political boundaries O ther political changes are also on the horizon, as a proposal could lead to changes in local political districts. S en. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, led a town meeting to discuss the senate's proposed changes to congressional and legislative district boundary lines. Ev ery 10 years, the state H ouse and Senate redraw F lorida's political map. The latest exercise would shift western Martin and St. L ucie counties outside Sen. N egron's constituency, District 28. V oters west of Interstate-95 would belong to District 17, now represented by Sen. J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales, who is serving his final term. U nder the state Senate C ommittee on Reapportionment's proposal, Sen. N egron's district would expand to include a portion of northern St, Lucie County and part of Indian River C ounty east of Interstate-95. The proposed changes are set to be discussed next month in the next legislative session. Officials expect to complete the process by Febr uary. Law would punish parents for lying about missing children Another idea coming from citizens resulted from outr age over the sensational C asey Anthony trial. P ublic outcry ensued after the Florida woman was acquitted in a controversial r uling last summer after being implicated in the death of her toddler, Caylee, in 2008. A new bill taking shape in the Florida Senate will set serious consequences for parents who lie to investigators about missing children. S en. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, wrote the bill and submitted it for consideration. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 30, 2011 Martin County A9 32 91 -B NE Indian River Drive, Jensen Beach(Where Jensen Beach Blvd. Meets Indian River Drive)(772) 934-6560 € Domestic & International Shipping € Packing Material € Messenger &Courier Service Available € Auto &Boat Transport760678$3.00 OFF SHIPPING Up to 5 Packages 687080 EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY! 2661 SE OCEANBLVD, STUART(CEDARPOINTEPLAZA)772-221-1815eastoceanbistro.net Any member of the Education System enjoys complimentary hor doeuvres 3:30 5:30pm & 2 for 1 DrinksEDUCATIONAPPRECIATIONFRIDAYSL unch starts at 11:30am M onday Saturday$6.99 Lunch Specials on ThursdaysD inner starts at 4:00pm M onday Sunday HAPPY HOUR EVERYDAY3:00 7:00pm T wo for One PRIX FIXE 3-COURSE MENUSERVED EVERYDAY 4:00-6:00PMonly $14.95 Custom Made Verticals ArchesMini Blinds W oven WoodsW ood Blinds ShuttersCellular & Pleated ShadesSheer-Wrapped Verticals 221-06272201 S.E.

price on a 50-inch Panasonic plasma TV is not being surprised at the cashier that the "best price" is not really the best price because Best B uy has a $350 dealer fee. You don't have to haggle with Circuit City because you've had the opportunity to fairly compare their price with their competition. This opportunity is being denied car buyers in Florida. You are right about salesmen not being paid on the dealer fee. This makes the salesman very reluctant to deduct the amount of the dealer fee from the price of the car during negotiation. If y our dealer fee is $999 and y ou deduct it from the price, y ou are costing yourself $250 (assuming a 25 percent commission). The salesman also tells the customer he cannot remove the dealer fee because he is required by law to charge all customers the same dealer fee. AS: If y ou find the need to r ush out after the sales associate has informed you of a dealer fee, you didn't want to be there in the first place. B uying a car should be a pleasant experience. ES: W ouldn't you rush out of Best Buy if the cashier added a$350 dealer fee to the $3,995 advertised price of y our Panasonic plasma TV? As far as car buying being a pleasant experience, try this experiment without revealing y ou are a car salesman. Ask the next 10 people you see outside of your dealership if they consider buying a car a pleasant experience." I wrote a posting for this blog entitled, "Would you rather buy a car or have a colonoscopy?" Car dealers are one of the few retailers who haven't entered the 21st century. They are going to have to survive and compete. Alex, in the 21st century the customer is king. Wake up and smell the coffee. AS: As a last note, if you walk into a dealership expecting to be ripped off, no matter how good of deal you actually get, it will never be good enough. If you walk in expecting to be treated right, y ou will probably leave happy every time. ES: Are you suggesting car buyers should not be wary of ov er-paying when buying a car? In the second paragraph of your posting you admitted that your goal was to make as much profit off that customer as possible. You are suggesting that if the customers wear r ose-tinted glasses, trust you to give them a good price, they will leave happy. Alex, the only customers who leave happy every time after over paying for a car are those who we re deceived.

It's also not subject to being debonded or separated from the part, as coatings are." H is compound blends boron, carbide and other non-toxic materials to create a safe alternative to hexavalent chromium, a material used to increase the strength and resistance and extend the life of metal products. H exavalent chromium also infamously became the subject of a class-action lawsuit and Hollywood movie, when research linked it to several cancer cases in a residential community "Someone call Erin Br ockovich. B4C Technologies has developed and r efined a product that could completely eliminate the need for hexavalent chromium, a known carcinogen when inhaled," said Crystal Stiles, co-executive director of the Business Development Board of Ma r tin County. B ecause of the new product B4C Technologies will expand from five employees to 55 within three years, said Mr. Dyer, who cofounded the company last y ear with Ed McComas. N ew staff will fill clerical, production, quality control, chemist, lab tech and other positions. The company moved into the Sands Commerce Center last February and began operations in May. It is in the process of testing its new formula with 30 international manufacturing companies and government agencies, with plans to license the product to these organizations. The idea is to introduce a safe alternative to hexavalent chromium, a $9 billion per year industry that covers cars, trucks, airplanes, boats, household garbage disposals, HVAC compressors and many other items. "H exavalent chromium is omnipresent, but invisible," Mr. McComas said. The company got the support of the area economic development arm.

"They are demonstrative of the innov ation and entrepreneurship that thrives in Martin C ounty, and we look forward to supporting their success." occasions the corps' expected $1.25 million contribution to the project, the group turned over the federal process to local authorities. "T he Army Corps of Engineers is not moving forward with the bid, and now it's up to Martin County to move forward with it," said G abriella B. Ferraro, communications and outreach coordinator for the Martin C ounty Commissioners. The county declared a state of local emergency to allow it to waive the legal procedures and formalities and speed up the bidding process for dredging the St. L ucie Inlet. The initial bid will call for r emoving 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet, and additional dredging will take place later. B ut the fallout the Army C orps of Engineers won't mean a hardship for the county, because officials already have the $7.5 million needed for the project, Ms. Ferraro said. "This declaration allows the county to move forward quickly with the bidding process," said Ta r yn Kryzda, county administrator. "Our goal is get as much of the inlet dredged as possible by May 2012." The natural flow of water moving from north to south causes shoaling or sand build up within the St. Lucie I nlet, Ms. Ferraro said. When left unmanaged, shoaling creates navigational obstructions and limits the use of the inlet as Martin C ounty's only outlet to the ocean. The impoundment basin, the area where drifting sand is captured to help keep the channel open, has been filled to capacity for some time. Shoaling extends across the inlet's mouth and will only continue to worsen until the inlet is dredged," she said. "D ue to this shoaling, the S t. Lucie Inlet is at a point where it could soon be declared non-navigable. This would have a tremendous, negative impact on Ma r tin County and our quality of life in many ways.

The customer reported he paid $19.10 for his food order. A pparently, not long after that, he got a call from a bank saying someone had attempted to use his debit card to make a $900 purchase at a store. The employee who used the debit card later said she bought cigarettes, beer, Red B ull, barbecue food and then attempted to buy a $900 necklace for her boyfriend. If the woman ends up serving time in jail or prison, she probably won't get a choice of extra pickles or mayonnaise on her hamburger.What you get for thinking the wrong wayA bondsman and Indian River County authorities spent more than three hours looking for a Fellsmere man who had his bond revoked and warrants out of Brevard C ounty. They had been told he was last seen going into a bedr oom. Eventually, authorities found a hidden floor panel that led to a crawl space. The man was in the corner of the crawl space with insulation on him to conceal his location. When discovered, he said, I would have come out, but I didn't think you would find me down there. "I didn't think y ou would look for me for a stupid out-of-county warr ant." He thought wrong on both counts. And he may end up in a space that is almost as cramped as the crawl space. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 30, 2011 Martin County A11 Join the Chamber Today and Receive Valuable 2012 Membership Savings!!€ Marketing opportunities with other business leaders in the community € Ribbon cutting ceremony with photo op and a tour of your business € FREE 10-inch ad in Hometown News for new members Palm City Chamber of CommerceThe Chamber That Gets Things Done 772-286-8121www.palmcitychamber.com 687094 760699 BACK PAIN?Treasure Coast to receive the free report mailed to you today that exposes how many Treasure Coast residents are eliminating back pain, call this tollfree, 24 hour recorded message at 1-800-864-4991. 682401 682402Answers located in Classified Section 772-546-7777 € 561-747-4554 Included with Service &Repair€ 15% Discount savings for ESA customers € 10% Discount savings for Seniors (Over age 60)*€ A/C filters special savings € Algae strip special savings € Other Services € Free EstimatesNOT VALID WITH ANY OTHER OFFER (May not combine offers)License CAC009726 € FP&L Independent ContractorT om Ranger AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE, INC.www.rangerair.com Certified TRANE Comfort SpecialistAIR FILTERS ALL SIZESNOT VALID WITH ANY OTHER OFFER Included with Equipment Purchase€ Equipment Rebates up to $1,300.00 € FPL Rebates up to $1,495.00 € 3% Discount if paid with cash or v alid check € 36 Months equal payments, no interest € 10 Year Parts and Labor warranty discount specials € 6 Month supply of A/C filters on one size each € Free 1 year maintenance agreements $139 value with equipment sale DEALER ON SITE SHOWROOM! 687272RANGER28-Point Energy-Saving S ystem Check T une Up$89(Reg.$109)M ust present couponExpires 1/6/12Thanks for 37 Years! 760773 New Tires at Wholesale Prices WE WILL MEET OR BEAT COMPETITORS PRICES!Specials...Specials...

P olice arrest gang membersFo rt Pierce Police arrested members of the 13th Street gang last February, saying they were linked to murders, drug sales and robberies. P olice said the investigation indicated members of the gang were responsible for several unsolved homicides during the past 15 years. The five arrested members of the gang were identified to police as being enforcers.Three arrested in connection with murderS t. Lucie County Sheriff's Office investigators arrested three young men in connection with the murder of another in Lakewood Park. In vestigators believe the shooting followed a fight that r esulted from a car running ov er a bottle. The three suspects are believed to have been leaving the residence when their vehicle ran over the bottle. They apparently thought someone had thrown something at the vehicle. Later, the suspects are believed to have returned to the residence and started firing shots into the residence. D aniel White, a resident of the house, was shot and subsequently died. Charged with first-degree murder in connection with his death were Samuel E ugene Cleare, Greg Anthony F erraro and Joshua TroyD avid Giovengo.T wo men charged with murder in death of Vero Beach manU ntil earlier this month, there hadn't been a murder on the beach side of Vero Be ach in 15 years. B ut that changed when police say two men entered the residence of Brian Simpson, 41, to burglarize it. The burglary turned into murder when Mr. Simpson arrived home and then was fatally shot. H enry Jones Jr. 23, and Da r ius Robinson, 16, were charged with first-degree murder in connection with the murder of Mr. Simpson. The two were nabbed days after the murder when they are believed to have returned to retrieve the murder w eapon, which was stashed on the island. S ome reported the men we re behaving suspiciously, which led to police arresting them on a charge of loitering and prowling.Man shot after responding to companionship adIn one of the more unusual crime stories that made news during 2011, a Martin County man was shot after he r esponded in Stuart to an ad for companionship. J ason Diodato and his wife, Sa r ah, placed the ad. I nitially, Mr. Diodato told authorities he shot the man after he attacked his wife and Mr. Diodato. But authorities later arrested Mr. Diodato, accusing him of shooting the man after he wanted the money back that he had paid to have companionship with Ms. Diodato. Ms. Diodato was subsequently charged with two counts of engaging in prostitution.CrimeF rom page A5BlotterF rom page A1 GOT NEWS?CALLUSTODAY! Eat out for half the cost!

Cash, Check or Credit Card only MARTIN COUNTY A favorite Hobe Sound r estaurant is spicing up its menu, just in time for the New Year. T aste Casual Dining is presenting Michael S tancheck, its new executive chef, who trained in N ew Orleans and worked at some of the finest area kitchens, including The M edalist, Jonathan's Landing and Courtyard Grill. Thanks to Mr. S tancheck, the Hobe S ound favorite, known for its fresh, comfort food, casual setting and easy charm, is gaining a new appeal. "E verything is going to have a Creole spice to it. We 'r e even going to have a Creole night," said Cr aig Kingston, who's run this preferred restaurant with his wife, Karen, since 2006. T aste has been a favorite among locals since it first opened, with a bar that has become a community pub with an extensive beer and wine list. W ith more than 60 wine selections, its bar serves up favorites such as MŽnage ˆ Trois, a California red wine from N apa County, and Santa Ma r gherita, an Italian white or pinot grigio. It s lunches, mouthwatering and inexpensive, helped it develop the r eputation as "the day place" and firmly established it as Hobe Sound's best-kept secret among locals. B ut word's spreading, especially on Monday nights as a new guitarist will bring a smooth jazz sound to the dining r oom, which features a beautiful fireplace, and a piano player will add live entertainment on Friday evenings. D inner is becoming a major event at Taste, where the proprietors are artfully melding excellent cooking and great ambiance, including a screened-in, softly lit outdoor dining room. G uests can also enjoy theme nights, when the chef features Italian, chicken pot pie, prime r ib or other entrŽes. At T aste, the attention to detail is apparent in the quality of the food. The hamburger is freshly ground, the Philly cheese steaks made from prime rib slices, the fish is fresh and the food made to order. The Savanna gorgonzola salad is a treat with MARTIN COUNTY Golfers from across the country hit the greens at the Mary's Shelter second annual golf classic at W illoughby Golf Club in S tuart on Dec. 16. F or the second year, Chairman Peter W. Thompson, of PNC Business Credit, oversaw a sold-out event, raising $40,000 to support residential services and programs for homeless, pregnant women and their babies. Golfers enjoyed a picture-perfect day at one of the area's most picturesque golf courses as they competed in a variety of activities, including longest drive, closest to the pin, beat the pro, yellow ball and a hole-in-one contest sponsored by C arl's Buick.

B eneficiaries of the fundraiser are the family of the late Brian Simpson a Ve ro Beach resident shot and murdered in his home in November when he walked in on two men burglarizing his home his widow Kristen, and two children, Samantha, 15, and Scott, 14. Scott and his family were w ell-known in baseball circles in the area, as Scott has played for the Gifford Middle School baseball team, the Vero Beach J unior Baseball League and the Treasure Coast Hurricanes travel baseball team, so it seemed fitting to help and support the family in a sport that Mr. Simpson loved and shared with his family, said Larry Lawson, coach of the Tr easure Coast Hurricanes 14and under travel team.

P layers can pre-register for the fundraising event now and pay $15. Same-day registration will be available on a limited basis at $5 per inning as available, a press release said. The idea for the fundraiser came from a teammate, Jordan Mazzerella. The Vero B each community has jumped onboard to help out, Mr. Lawson said. This is an unbelievable community effort. Im impressed and touched at the ov erwhelming support for the S impson family. It really tells y ou something about the good out there, he said. In addition to the player fee, funds raised at concessions and during raffles throughout the day will support the cause. S pecial guests are scheduled to visit the field during the event, including Jarrod S altalamacchia, starting catcher for the Boston Red So x and former pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Ron P erranowski, and will be available to sign autographs, Mr. Lawson said. Br ian was a great dad, and loved and supported his son in every possible way. They are a great family and we wanted to do something for them, he said. All proceeds raised for this will go to the Simpson family, every dime, Mr. Lawson said. Fr iends of the Simpson family will also hold a 5k race on Jan. 14 at South Beach Par k.

TREASURE COAST The Electronic Security Association is accepting applications for its 2012 y outh scholarship program, which will award $10,000 in scholarships to two children of active duty police officers and firefighters. The first-place winner will receive $7,500 to put toward a college education and the second-place winner will receive $2,500. S ince the ESA youth scholarship program was created in 1996, the association and its affiliated chartered chapters have donated more than $300,000 in scholarship funds to children of police officers and firefighters. The men and women of our country who serve as police officers or firefighters are heroes and national treasures, said Dom DAscoli ESA president. The work they do in protecting our communities can never be appreciated enough. This scholarship is one of the ways we can thank our deserving public safety partners. A wards are based on a combination of academic achievement, national test scores, extracurricular participation and an essay. S tudents are awarded up to 25 points for GPA, 30 points for ACT/SAT scores, 25 points for an essay and 20 points for extracurricular activities. Po ints are awarded through a combination of earned academic points and judging by committee members. To be eligible to apply for the scholarship, students must be between 15 and 20 years old, a graduating high school senior and have been accepted for admission to an accredited college or university. F or the second consecutive year, homeschooled students will be eligible to compete. All applicants must provide a transcript with a calculated cumulative GPA through 11th grade to be eligible. Each eligible student must have a father, mother or natural guardian who is an active duty, fulltime police officer, firefighter or volunteer firefighter. S tudents will be r equired to write an essay titled, What it means to me to have my parent or guardian involved in securing our community.

eon his parents to death on J uly 16. When police arrived at the home after the murders, T yler initially told them his parents were out of town, police said. B ut officers found his parents dead on the floor of the master bedroom, covered in a variety of items. The hammer was lying between the bodies, police said. A juvenile told authorities T yler told him he was going to kill his parents and then later confessing to killing them.Prisoners escape from county jailIn dian River County authorities scrambled after two prisoners one convicted of murder and the other awaiting trial on a charge of murder escaped from the Indian River County jail. R ondell H. Reed, 52, and Leviticus Uriah Taylor, 25, escaped Oct. 23 by getting through a vent and a locked door and making their way ov er several raiser-wire topped fences. The investigation as to how they accomplished that continued weeks later. Mr. Taylors respite from incarceration didnt occur long, as the next day a Martin County detective spotted a man fitting his description walking down U.S. 1 in Stuart. Mr. Taylor is believed to have gone to a theater and watched a movie during his brief period of freedom. He was convicted of murdering Nester Perez of Vero B each during a 2009 burglary. M eanwhile, authorities in W arren County, Ohio, arrested Mr. Reed after a brief chase on Interstate-75. During his escape, Mr. R eed hid in a vacant house in Sebastian, stole a car and then stole another vehicle in M acon, Ga. He was arrested earlier in the year and charged in connection with the murder of J ames Malone, who owned Ji m s Automotive in Sebastian. S ince his escape, Mr. Reed pled guilty to a charge of first-degree murder and has been sent to a state prison.Sheriff decides not to seek re-electionMar tin County Sheriff R obert Crowder, who has held his position for 20 years and worked in law enforcement for nearly half a century announced he will not seek re-election. In the wake of the announcement, two Martin C ounty residents announced their decisions to seek election in 2012. One is State Rep. William Sny der, who once served as a major in the Martin County Sheriffs Office. The other is John Pietruszewski, a major with the Martin County Sheriffs Office, who has worked there for 28 years. Elsewhere on the Treasure C oast, St. Lucie County S heriff Ken Mascara announced his candidacy for re-election. o far no one has announced they will oppose him.Decapitated body found in countyA decapitated body, later identified as that of Douglas Fr asier Jr. 21, of Vero Beach, was discovered in the backyard of a foreclosed house w est of Vero Beach. At the time of his murder, Mr. Frasier was on probation after being convicted of burglary and theft. As of press time, Indian River County authorities had made no arrests in connection with the murder. A uthorities said the death was a homicide, but have r eleased few details beyond that. There has been speculation that animals were r esponsible for the body being decapitated.Man murders t wo women, then commits suicideA pparently some type of argument resulted in a Fort Pierce man shooting his wife and her mother before killing himself at their residence at 511 Quincy Ave. The bodies of Robin Carrier, 49, and her daughter, S tephanie Carrier, 22, were found in the kitchen of the r esidence. P olice discovered the body of Christopher Covington inside the garage. A 3-year-old daughter of Mr. Covington and Ms. Carr ier was found unharmed.Employee accused of murdering attorneyAfter an attorney in St. L ucie County accused one employee of stealing from him, authorities say she and her boyfriend, who was also an employee of the attorney, conspired to murder him. Thomas J. Barnard, the boyfriend, was arrested earlier this year and accused of murdering Ashley Ronald P ollow, the attorney, on Nov. 28, 2010 and then pouring sulfuric acid on his body. An informant told police that Mr. Barnard confessed to the murder after they talked about a book written by O .J. Simpson. In the book, I f I Did It, Mr. Simpson talked hypothetically about the murders of Nicole Brown S impson, his then ex-wife and Ronald Goldman, her friend. He was acquitted of those murders. In an odd twist involving Mr. Pollow, it was disclosed after his murder, that law enforcement officers had saved Mr. Pollow from possibly being murdered. A man who was charged with killing his mother in Po rt S t. Lucie went to Mr. P ollows residence and threatened to kill him, accusing him of trying to steal his girlfriend, authorities said. Lawmen, who tracked the man to Mr. Pollows residence, then arrested him. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 30, 2011 Martin County A5 Air Conditioning &Heating Commercial &Residential Sales Service Installation Same Day Service No extra charge for 24 Hour Emergency including Nights Weekends HolidaysDont be surprised by a cold front 10 YEARSLic. # CAC058508 Insured772-232-1114 EVERYTHING MUST GO!

T eachers and students are under the gun to do all in their power to do well on the FCAT. Parents have witnessed their children living in fear of the coming test day. Florida taxpayers have invested millions to establish this extensive testing program, which is in constant change. Now the state board of education has unanimously approved a tougher scoring system for the FCAT. Bottom line: more students will fail! The idea of each state setting up its own testing program is WRONG! If, however, students are to be evaluated by tests, using a national testing program would be a better choice. F lorida students should be compared to students throughout the nation. Using a national testing program would save millions that are being spent every year to develop the FCAT. The money saved could be used to improve learning in the classroom. F lorida students will be seeking jobs throughout the U nited States and therefore, need to see their performance as it compares with students throughout the country. I feel the FCAT is being used as a political tool to hurt public education. What happens in WashingtonIt s amazing what happens in Washington. When politicians want to grab credit, they shout from the roof tops. When they want to keep things from us, there is a deathly quiet. Pr esident Obama has decided to stop searching for illegal immigrants. It was a leak that let this information be disclosed to the public. F or years he has dragged his feet concerning illegals but this is the last straw. H alting enforcement of existing statutes flies in the face of the safety and security of law-abiding Americans.Unhappy holidaysP olls show that 95 percent of Americans celebrate Christmas and 84 percent describe themselves as Christians. We were disappointed, therefore, to enter a store and be greeted with happy holidays. That may be politically correct but we will not be returning to that store.Where are the jobs?Ev en though President Obama promised millions of new jobs when he promoted his multi-million stimulus program, very little was actually accomplished. It cost us a huge amount but we wound up with an astronomical debt. For mer New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson had it right when he said, My next door neighbors two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration.K eep the creeps in jailP olice have nabbed a man for stalking. Thats not such hot news, but what is astounding is that a background check reveals he had been arrested for stalking other women. He had been arrested four times in less than a month. This creep is being held for identity theft, harassment and related offenses. We expect judges to be fair but strict. W ouldnt it be nice if they would keep repeat offenders in jail?Is it the teachers?This nation is struggling with a public education system in decline and a new study by the American Enterprise I nstitute gives some reasons for our lack of success. There is a significant pay gap between overpaid teachers and lower paid, private-sector workers. It may be hard to believe but the SAT scores of college students majoring in education are far below the average of all other college students. Does this mean teachers are dumber than the others? And, if so, why are teachers getting the highest salaries? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com.

Her next stop was to meet with students at the Environmental Studies Center to talk about her advocacy of her Protect Our Environment platform. Ms. Janolo has an opportunity to become Miss America this coming January. Happy holidays everybody! 2011 has been a quick year. I can hardly believe 2012 is just a couple days away. If theres one thing I can count on this time of year, its the inevitable calls I get from people whove been fortunate enough to get a new machine for Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever holiday they celebrate and are puzzled as to how to get all of their stuff off of the old machine and onto the new one. M ost people are flabbergasted when they see just how much data has accumulated on their old machine over the years (especially if the machine is six or seven years old.) These files and such tend to grow, and since we usually only access things one file at a time, its hard to see the big picture and understand just how much data there actually is. So what do we do? Whats the best method to use for this type of project? W ell, my favorite way of accomplishing the task r equires a bit of hardware called an external USB hard drive. And one of the benefits of this method is that once all of the data is moved and the new machine is up and running, the external drive can then be used as a backup drive and the computer set up to back up all the data to it every night, a task that anyone who values their data should have set up anyway. Now when I mention an external USB drive, please understand Im not talking about one of these little 8gigabyte thumb drives that are small enough to hang on your key chain, but an actual external hard drive, with hundreds of gigabytes of storage space. A 250gigabyte external is about the smallest available these days but you can also find terabyte-sized drives (1,000 gigabytes) for under $100. T wo hundred fifty gigabytes is the smallest that Id r ecommend for this job. OK, so now you have your old machine, your new machine and an external hard drive. Whats next? W ell, plug the external drive into the old computer and create a new folder on the external drive. Call the folder from old or some other name that youll be able to recognize and work with and then you are going to want to copy everything from the C: drive of the old computer to the fr om old folder on the external drive. I recommend (and use myself) a program called ycopy available for free from www.download.com (just search for ycopy on the download.com page and it will come right up). I recommend ycopy because when it runs into a file that it cant copy (which it will), it makes a note of it and keeps going. The W indows file copy system, on the other hand, will stop leaving you trying to figure out what made it and what didnt. U sually the copy process can take several hours, but thats OK, you want to get everything it can so you dont have to keep going back to the old machine looking for forgotten files. If all goes well the from old folder on the external drive y ou should now have a full snapshot of all your data from the old machine. (Y ou can also use this time to set up your new machine if you havent already). Once the copy process is finished, shut down the old machine and unplug the external drive. Plug the external drive into the new machine and it should show up as a drive in the new computer. The next step is to copy the from old folder from the external drive to the desktop of the new machine. Again, the process may take a couple of hours, but the result is youll have a folder on your desktop that has everything that wasT ransferring old stuff to new computer COMP UTE THISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

So y ou may want to explore all possible retirement savings vehicles, including a variable annuity. Generally speaking, when saving for retirement, its a good idea to contribute as much as possible to your individual retirement account and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored r etirement plan. But if yo u ve fully funded those plans for the year, and you still have some money left to invest, you may want to consider a variable annuity, which offers these benefits: T ax deferred earnings. Y our variable annuitys earnings have the opportunity to grow tax deferred, which means your investment dollars can accumulate faster than if they were placed in an investment on which you paid taxes every y ear. When you eventually make withdrawals, your earnings will be taxed at y our ordinary income tax r ate. (For nonqualified annuities, you wont have to pay additional taxes on the amount you contributed.) There are no tax advantages to investing in a var iable annuity with qualified money. A variety of investment options. Variable annuities allow individuals to invest in several different professionally managed investments, known as subaccounts. You can choose the subaccounts that best fit y our risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term objectives. Keep in mind, though, that diversification does not guarantee a profit or protect against loss. No contribution limits. Each year, you can contribute far more to a var iable annuity than you can to your 401(k) and your IRA. In fact, you can contribute virtually unlimited amounts to your annuity. Pay out flexibility. A var iable annuity provides yo u with flexibility in gaining access to your money. You could, for instance, collect a lump sum. But you might find it more advantageous to take y our payments over a specified number of years. Y ou could even choose to r eceive a lifetime income stream. G uaranteed death benefit.

You can read his comment and my response by clicking on my Blog, www.EarlStewartOnCars.co m and going to my article, The no-dealer-fee fat lady hasnt sung yet. Ive reproduced his posting and my reply below because the comments of this car salesman are very re vealing of what goes on inside the heads of many car sales people today. I often am accused of calling car dealers and car sales people crooks or just plain evil. I certainly dont mean to. I dont believe that most people in the retail auto business are dishonest any more than I believe that about lawyers or politicians. Of course, there are a few that are just plain bad. Amoral is a better way to describe the mindset of those in the retail car business that causes the huge problem we have today with the way car buyers are treated. A person who is amoral is one who is not admitting of moral distinctions or judgments; neither moral nor immoral. When you read the words of Alex S. below you can see that he does not believe what he does to sell a car is deceptive, immoral or unethical. Im sure you know others like Alex. If somebody challenges their behavior, its never their fault. In Alexs case, he blames me and he blames and his customers for the negativity surrounding car dealers and car salesmen. Earl Stewart: Thanks very much for your posting. Ivve chosen to address your posting paragraph by paragraph. First, let me congratulte you for having the courgae, not only to r espond to my blog but not to choose to be anonymous. Y our posting is very interesting because it speaks for most Florida car dealers. As you point out, y ou and most of those employed in the retail auto business are not crooks. A minority are, but the majority are simply assessing the dealer fee because thats the way its always been done and not taking time out to think why its bad for the consumer. Alex S.: I work at a dealership in Sawgrass (I wont mention the name because I dont have the authority to). Over the past few days, I have noticed the quantity of my complaints ov er dealer fees have gone up, so I investigated and FINA NCIALJAMIE C HAPOGAS ON CARSEARL STEWART See CHAPOGAS, A8 See S TEWART, A8

While variable annuities do offer some key advantages, there are also some considerations to discuss with your financial advisor before investing. F or one thing, variable annuities are not suitable for everyone. A variable annuity is unquestionably a long-term investment. In fact, you may be assessed a surrender charge if you pull money out of the contract within the first several years after you purchase it. How ever, some variable annuities allow you to withdraw a portion of your investment, such as 10 percent of your purchase payments, without incurring a surrender charge, while others allow full withdrawals. Another point to keep in mind is that if you tap into y our annuity before you r each age 59_, you may be hit with a 10 percent early withdrawal penalty. One final note: A var iable annuity is just that: variable. The value of y our annuity will go up and down, based on whats happening in the financial markets, and theres no guarantee that y our annuity wont lose principal. Also, variable annuities vary greatly in their terms, features and fees, so before investing, consider shopping around. C onsult with your financial advisor to determine which variable annuity may be appropriate for your needs. U ltimately, though, you may well find that a var iable annuity may be the final piece to your r etirement income puzzle.

I respect what you are doing and can completely understand what it is that you are doing. I always disclose the dealer fees to my clients during my negotiations, I don't say plus fees, I tell them plus dealer fees of XXX. ES: Im very glad to hear that my anti dealer fee efforts are spreading around the state. Im happy to hear that y ou totally disclose the dealer fee to all of your customers. U nfortunately, most salespeople do not. Virtually all salespeople do not use the complete term dealer fee but simply say fees. This lead the customer to believe it is an official fee, federal, state or local. AS: What it boils down to for me is that "profit" is not a dirty word. Dealer fees are an essential part of profit. Car sales are all a game. The customers goal is to spend as little as possible, whereas my goal is to make as much as possible. If both parties can come to a happy agreement, then it is all for the better. I r ead your previous article and people feel they are being r obbed, that is simply not the point. No salesman has ever held a customer down and made them sign. If you dont like the way we do business then leave. ES: I cant tell you how often Ive heard other dealers use the same phrase, profit is not a dirty word. This phrase is a straw dog just like we dont want government to tell us how to price our cars. My dealership is very profitable and I dont charge the dealer fee. Im in business to make a profit and I wouldnt be if I thought profit was a dirty word. Im not crazy about y our description of all car sales being a game. Its the second biggest purchase a customer makes in his life. If its a game, its a very serious and important none. Using y our analogy, I only want both teams to be fully informed of the rules of the game, hence full disclosure of the price of the car, which should include everything except tax and tag. This full disclosure should not come after the fact but from the first time a price is quoted in advertising, verbally, on a windshield or sign or over the I nternet. You say no one has ever held a customer down and made him sign. Maybe not literally, but I know of lots of customers who were figuratively held down. Ive talked with elderly widows in their 80s who were kept in a closing office for hours when they asked for their car keys to go home. I also know of customers who dont understand or read English well, y oung unsophisticated and first-time buyers who are uneducated and/or just not very smart who have been taken great advantage of. AS: P eople do not walk into an electronics store and fight about the price they pay for a $5.000 flatscreen TV. They dont walk into the grocery store and argue about the price of a pound of apples. I guess what I am trying to get at is if you are in a comfortable place with a calm attitude the dealer fee should not be a deal breaker for anyone. Talk to the dealer sales associate about it. Be lieve me when I say this, most salespeople dont r eceive compensation from the dealer fee, but I still need to collect it.

an outpouring of support and led to the renaming of a park in honor of Lance Cpl. Justin J. Wilson. C ounty Commissioner Ed Ciampi said his heart broke when he saw Fran and Lance W ilson kiss their son's casket during a private moment at the funeral last spring. The Wilsons were burying their son, 24-year-old Lance Cpl. Wilson, who was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan's Helmand Pro vince. Lance Cpl. Wilson was supporting combat operations during Operation Enduring Freedom. That's why the commissioner set out to find a way to memorialize the soldier. Ev entually, the District 5 r epresentative settled on r enaming the Palm City Park where Lance Cpl. Wilson played as a child, in the Mar ine's honor, and creating a memorial there. Last September, county commissioners approved the idea, and the public park at 2050 S.W. Mapp Road became the Lance Cpl. Justin Wilson M emorial Park. The renaming took place during a ceremony on Jan. 15 that drew area residents, leaders, military groups and supporters. I ndiantown gets enterprise z one designation One of the countys most rur al communities also had a r enaming of sorts, when I ndiantown got an enterprise z one designation, which allows state and county officials to give financial incentives to businesses and residents within the zone. The Florida Department of E conomic Opportunity approved Martin County's application to name I ndiantown a Florida enterprise zone. The state designation means the area will now qualify for programs aimed at encouraging economic growth and investment in distressed geographic areas. The local zone covers a 10square mile area that will benefit from the program for three years, beginning Jan. 1. B each erosion forces multiple closures It was a battle between man and the elements at Bathtub B each. The shoreline there continued to erode, thanks to violent waves and cold weather. Officials repeatedly closed the popular beach this year as a safety precaution. They said rough surf and nearly 9-foot-tall waves this month severely eroded dunes, making the beach dangerous. To help restore the shoreline, engineering crews will transport sand from local mines to Bathtub Reef Beach to reinforce the dune. Last December, county officials closed the beach less than a month after reopening it, because erosion to the area around the lifeguard tower forced staff to move the tower and leave the beach unguarded. W eather threatens sanctuary The animal sanctuary known as MC-2 also struggled against natural erosion. Mar tin County officials and volunteers commuted to Bird I sland, or MC-2, to plant grasses as part of the final stages to help save the islands coast. The island is among one of the most important nesting areas in South Florida, not only because of the quantity of birds and number of species that make their homes there, but also because it is a sanctuary for many rare and endangered ones. E ighteen species of birds, including about nine that are threatened or endangered, make their home on the 1.6acre spoil island east of S ewall's Point in the Indian River Lagoon. The hundreds of grasses volunteers planted this month will spread their roots quickly to cover the area and trap mangrove seeds to help create new sprouts. Area graduation rates are second highest in state M eanwhile, the school district continued its strong performance, achieving the second highest graduation rate among high-school students, according to information from the Florida Department of Education. A bout 95.2 percent of eligible students in the county graduated. Mar tin County's rate places it among the top-tier districts, second to Gulf County, 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. Challenger enters school board race A member of the school board would like to see the Mar tin County School District work to improve its performance. Laurie Gaylord, a 55-yearold listeningand spoken-language specialist, certified auditory-verbal therapist, filed to run for superintendent of schools. Ms. Gaylord, vice chairwoman of the school board, will challenge incumbent N ancy Kline, who has held the post since 2008. R un-off election ushers in new commissioners A run-off election in January pitted an attorney against a financial consultant and a chamber director against a business man. F or 23 years, attorney Eula Clarke made her home in Stuart before entering the political arena. She served as city planner, before running for the Group 5 seat against Kelli G lass. Ms. Clarke won that r ace is now vice mayor. Ms. Glass entered and won a later election and is also a city commissioner. The January run-off also pitted 15-year Stuart resident and businessman Troy M cDonald against Ron Rose, who first moved to the city in 1986 and has long been the driving force behind the popular Pineapple Festival and other Jensen Beach Chamber events. Mr. McDonald won the race and became the new city commissioner. R edistricting proposal could shift political boundaries O ther political changes are also on the horizon, as a proposal could lead to changes in local political districts. S en. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, led a town meeting to discuss the senate's proposed changes to congressional and legislative district boundary lines. Ev ery 10 years, the state H ouse and Senate redraw F lorida's political map. The latest exercise would shift western Martin and St. L ucie counties outside Sen. N egron's constituency, District 28. V oters west of Interstate-95 would belong to District 17, now represented by Sen. J.D. Alexander, R-Lake Wales, who is serving his final term. U nder the state Senate C ommittee on Reapportionment's proposal, Sen. N egron's district would expand to include a portion of northern St, Lucie County and part of Indian River C ounty east of Interstate-95. The proposed changes are set to be discussed next month in the next legislative session. Officials expect to complete the process by Febr uary. Law would punish parents for lying about missing children Another idea coming from citizens resulted from outr age over the sensational C asey Anthony trial. P ublic outcry ensued after the Florida woman was acquitted in a controversial r uling last summer after being implicated in the death of her toddler, Caylee, in 2008. A new bill taking shape in the Florida Senate will set serious consequences for parents who lie to investigators about missing children. S en. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, wrote the bill and submitted it for consideration. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 30, 2011 Martin County A9 3291-B NE Indian River Drive, Jensen Beach(Where Jensen Beach Blvd. Meets Indian River Drive)(772) 934-6560 Domestic & International Shipping Packing Material Messenger &Courier Service Available Auto &Boat Transport$3.00 OFF SHIPPING Up to 5 Packages EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY! 2661 SE OCEANBLVD, STUART(CEDARPOINTEPLAZA)772-221-1815eastoceanbistro.net Any member of the Education System enjoys complimentary hor doeuvres 3:30 5:30pm & 2 for 1 DrinksEDUCATIONAPPRECIATIONFRIDAYSL unch starts at 11:30am M onday Saturday$6.99 Lunch Specials on ThursdaysD inner starts at 4:00pm M onday Sunday HAPPY HOUR EVERYDAY3:00 7:00pm T wo for One PRIX FIXE 3-COURSE MENUSERVED EVERYDAY 4:00-6:00PMonly $14.95 Custom Made Verticals ArchesMini Blinds W oven WoodsW ood Blinds ShuttersCellular & Pleated ShadesSheer-Wrapped Verticals 221-06272201 S.E.

price on a 50-inch Panasonic plasma TV is not being surprised at the cashier that the best price is not really the best price because Best B uy has a $350 dealer fee. You dont have to haggle with Circuit City because youve had the opportunity to fairly compare their price with their competition. This opportunity is being denied car buyers in Florida. You are right about salesmen not being paid on the dealer fee. This makes the salesman very reluctant to deduct the amount of the dealer fee from the price of the car during negotiation. If y our dealer fee is $999 and y ou deduct it from the price, y ou are costing yourself $250 (assuming a 25 percent commission). The salesman also tells the customer he cannot remove the dealer fee because he is required by law to charge all customers the same dealer fee. AS: If you find the need to r ush out after the sales associate has informed you of a dealer fee, you didnt want to be there in the first place. B uying a car should be a pleasant experience. ES: W ouldnt you rush out of Best Buy if the cashier added a$350 dealer fee to the $3,995 advertised price of y our Panasonic plasma TV? As far as car buying being a pleasant experience, try this experiment without revealing y ou are a car salesman. Ask the next 10 people you see outside of your dealership if they consider buying a car a pleasant experience. I wrote a posting for this blog entitled, Would you rather buy a car or have a colonoscopy? Car dealers are one of the few retailers who havent entered the 21st century. They are going to have to survive and compete. Alex, in the 21st century the customer is king. Wake up and smell the coffee. AS: As a last note, if you walk into a dealership expecting to be ripped off, no matter how good of deal you actually get, it will never be good enough. If you walk in expecting to be treated right, y ou will probably leave happy every time. ES: Are you suggesting car buyers should not be wary of ov er-paying when buying a car? In the second paragraph of your posting you admitted that your goal was to make as much profit off that customer as possible. You are suggesting that if the customers wear r ose-tinted glasses, trust you to give them a good price, they will leave happy. Alex, the only customers who leave happy every time after over paying for a car are those who we re deceived.

H is compound blends boron, carbide and other non-toxic materials to create a safe alternative to hexavalent chromium, a material used to increase the strength and resistance and extend the life of metal products. H exavalent chromium also infamously became the subject of a class-action lawsuit and Hollywood movie, when research linked it to several cancer cases in a residential community Someone call Erin Br ockovich. B4C Technologies has developed and r efined a product that could completely eliminate the need for hexavalent chromium, a known carcinogen when inhaled, said Crystal Stiles, co-executive director of the Business Development Board of Mar tin County. B ecause of the new product B4C Technologies will expand from five employees to 55 within three years, said Mr. Dyer, who cofounded the company last y ear with Ed McComas. N ew staff will fill clerical, production, quality control, chemist, lab tech and other positions. The company moved into the Sands Commerce Center last February and began operations in May. It is in the process of testing its new formula with 30 international manufacturing companies and government agencies, with plans to license the product to these organizations. The idea is to introduce a safe alternative to hexavalent chromium, a $9 billion per year industry that covers cars, trucks, airplanes, boats, household garbage disposals, HVAC compressors and many other items. H exavalent chromium is omnipresent, but invisible, Mr. McComas said. The company got the support of the area economic development arm. The sky is the limit with B4C Technologies, said Ti m Dougher, co-executive director of the Business De velopment Board of Martin County. They are demonstrative of the innov ation and entrepreneurship that thrives in Martin C ounty, and we look forward to supporting their success. occasions the corps expected $1.25 million contribution to the project, the group turned over the federal process to local authorities. T he Army Corps of Engineers is not moving forward with the bid, and now its up to Martin County to move forward with it, said G abriella B. Ferraro, communications and outreach coordinator for the Martin C ounty Commissioners. The county declared a state of local emergency to allow it to waive the legal procedures and formalities and speed up the bidding process for dredging the St. L ucie Inlet. The initial bid will call for r emoving 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet, and additional dredging will take place later. B ut the fallout the Army C orps of Engineers wont mean a hardship for the county, because officials already have the $7.5 million needed for the project, Ms. Ferraro said. This declaration allows the county to move forward quickly with the bidding process, said Tar yn Kryzda, county administrator. Our goal is get as much of the inlet dredged as possible by May 2012. The natural flow of water moving from north to south causes shoaling or sand build up within the St. Lucie I nlet, Ms. Ferraro said. When left unmanaged, shoaling creates navigational obstructions and limits the use of the inlet as Martin C ountys only outlet to the ocean. The impoundment basin, the area where drifting sand is captured to help keep the channel open, has been filled to capacity for some time. Shoaling extends across the inlets mouth and will only continue to worsen until the inlet is dredged, she said. D ue to this shoaling, the S t. Lucie Inlet is at a point where it could soon be declared non-navigable. This would have a tremendous, negative impact on Mar tin County and our quality of life in many ways.

The customer reported he paid $19.10 for his food order. A pparently, not long after that, he got a call from a bank saying someone had attempted to use his debit card to make a $900 purchase at a store. The employee who used the debit card later said she bought cigarettes, beer, Red B ull, barbecue food and then attempted to buy a $900 necklace for her boyfriend. If the woman ends up serving time in jail or prison, she probably wont get a choice of extra pickles or mayonnaise on her hamburger.What you get for thinking the wrong wayA bondsman and Indian River County authorities spent more than three hours looking for a Fellsmere man who had his bond revoked and warrants out of Brevard C ounty. They had been told he was last seen going into a bedr oom. Eventually, authorities found a hidden floor panel that led to a crawl space. The man was in the corner of the crawl space with insulation on him to conceal his location. When discovered, he said, I would have come out, but I didnt think you would find me down there. I didnt think y ou would look for me for a stupid out-of-county warr ant. He thought wrong on both counts.

T aste Casual Dining is presenting Michael S tancheck, its new executive chef, who trained in N ew Orleans and worked at some of the finest area kitchens, including The M edalist, Jonathans Landing and Courtyard Grill. Thanks to Mr. S tancheck, the Hobe S ound favorite, known for its fresh, comfort food, casual setting and easy charm, is gaining a new appeal. E verything is going to have a Creole spice to it. We r e even going to have a Creole night, said Cr aig Kingston, whos run this preferred restaurant with his wife, Karen, since 2006. T aste has been a favorite among locals since it first opened, with a bar that has become a community pub with an extensive beer and wine list. W ith more than 60 wine selections, its bar serves up favorites such as Mnage Trois, a California red wine from N apa County, and Santa Mar gherita, an Italian white or pinot grigio. It s lunches, mouthwatering and inexpensive, helped it develop the r eputation as the day place and firmly established it as Hobe Sounds best-kept secret among locals. B ut words spreading, especially on Monday nights as a new guitarist will bring a smooth jazz sound to the dining r oom, which features a beautiful fireplace, and a piano player will add live entertainment on Friday evenings. D inner is becoming a major event at Taste, where the proprietors are artfully melding excellent cooking and great ambiance, including a screened-in, softly lit outdoor dining room. G uests can also enjoy theme nights, when the chef features Italian, chicken pot pie, prime r ib or other entres. At T aste, the attention to detail is apparent in the quality of the food. The hamburger is freshly ground, the Philly cheese steaks made from prime rib slices, the fish is fresh and the food made to order. The Savanna gorgonzola salad is a treat with MARTIN COUNTY Golfers from across the country hit the greens at the Marys Shelter second annual golf classic at W illoughby Golf Club in S tuart on Dec. 16.
