T een writes legislation to prevent food allergies at school cafeteriasMARTIN COUNTY A 14-yearold South Fork High School student is meeting with area lawmakers to discuss a bill she drafted that would r equire public school cafeterias to list the ingredients in foods they offer. Lauren Maunus, a freshman in the international baccalaureate program, wants to create a law to limit childrens exposure to potential allergens. I wrote this bill because of my sister, Lauren said. H er sibling, 11y ear-old Rachel, has life-threatening allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. M y mom would have to go the county offices to see the labels of foods in the school cafeteria, and if any of the labels changed, she was not informed of it, Lauren said. It was r eally scary. This bill would allow my sister, every time she was about to put something in her mouth, to know what was in it before she ate it. In addition to listing the ingredients in all foods, the bill re quires public school cafeterias to identify the eight major food allergens, in compliance with the 2011 Food Safety and 221-01225041 S.E.

The group meets each Sunday before sundown and encourages new people to come out and experience the sense of community through music and nature.MARTIN COUNTY The New Year will mean new visibility for businesses on Colorado Av enue, thanks to $1.2 million in funding for that area. The Colorado Avenue business district improvement project, which aims to make the area more attractive to pedestrians, secured $750,000 in state funding. The grant from the F lorida Department of Ec onomic Opportunity covers the majority of the $1.2 million city leaders estimate it will take to create on-street parking, add a roundabout at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevar d, a median and landscaping and make C olorado Avenue two lanes between 5th Street and Southeast Kindred. It would also pay for the r edesign of the stretch of C olorado Avenue between U.S. 1 and Dixie H ighway, reduce traffic speeds, improve pedestrian and bicycle access, increase parking and improve visibility and access to businesses along the roadway. The state provided all funds for which city officials applied, and the Stuart Community Redevelopment Agency will provide the rest of the money needed to complete the project. These improvements are in keeping with the citys CRA plan, said Ter esa Lamar-Sarno, the C ommunity Redevelopment Agencys administrator.

Right now, its not safe for R achel and kids like her to eat in the cafeteria, said D ebbie Maunus, the girls mother. Were so proud of Lauren. She went through the House of Representatives of the youth in government program, and because of her success has been given the opportunity to have her bill co-sponsored by r epresentatives Joe N egron, William Snyder and G ayle Harrell. Laurens bill defeated strong competition at r egional and state levels to emerge as the winner in the F lorida YMCA Youth in Government, which teaches students about the nations legislative and administrative processes, said Stella B oland, director of South Fo rk s international baccalaureate program. H er work caught the attention of state legislators, and got her meetings last month with Rep. Harrell, RPo rt S t. Lucie, Sen. Negron, R-S tuart and Rep.

Cities across the country that have completed similar projects have seen r educed vacancy rates and increased private investment, sales tax revenue, and property values. Wo rk funded through the community development block grant could begin as early as this spring, officials said. I n this new economy, it is more critical than ever that the city look at creative ways to compete with surroun ding business communities. This project has enormous potential to improve the climate for existing businesses in the C olorado Avenue corridor, as well as attract new business and jobs to the area, Ms. Lamar-Sarno said. W e are very excited to get word of the funding, and are appreciative of the hard work of the many community organizations, businesses and individual citizens who came together to support the project. B efore applying for the grant, the redevelopment agency focused on gaining strong public feedback. It held several public hearings and meetings, garnering support from businesses and community groups. I ts supporters became so passionate about the project, many wrote letters of support that cited the projects potential economic and social benefits, and sent these documents to accompany the grant application. Officials from the Community Redevelopment Agency expect to receive the grant contract in early J anuary.

The city of Stuart wastewater treatment facility project was chosen for its goals of improving air and water quality around the facility, while integrating it with the r est of the community, said N eda Simeonova, the magazines editorial director. W e recognize that the second goal was especially difficult due to the increasing growth of the community. Project workers utilized advanced technology, such as solar lighting and 3D laser scanning, to help achieve their goals. They also kept the total project cost relatively low. J udges evaluated several factors when selecting this y ears top projects. A key factor is the number of challenges a project faced and how it overcame them to meet its stated goals. J udges said they also looked for projects that stayed cost-efficient, made use of advanced technology and remained within regulations.

When confronted with what the woman and her friend said, the man told police she didnt have any r ight to be in the home. The problem with that was the police officer never mentioned the victim was a female, yet the man claimed he never saw the supposed burglar.

After being escorted out of the restaurant by friends, the man returned, hit a man in the back of the head, knocked down glasses stacked on the bar and then knocked some people to the floor. And if that wasnt enough, he exited the restaurant and fought people in the parking lot. When arrested, he yelled obscenities at the officer and said that one day someone would shoot the officer in the head. One must wonder what the man would have done if his entire food order had been wrong.BlotterF rom page A1

D id it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you will all be voted out? W ake up. They already have their own people ready to step in. I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave soldiers votes. At least some felons are legal citizens. What part of illegal is so hard to understand? Crossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and holding a license is a privilege. I know a few people who have been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of identity theft and giving out false Social Security numbers? Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools, y et illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children could not travel to an out-of-state school and expect to get in-state tuition, yet we give it to illegal aliens, not to mention every form of public aid and top priority for scholarships. There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now the M exican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland, yet we have to fight to be patriotic in our own country. Enough is enough, Id move my family to Mexico when it finally empties out, but guess what, you can never become a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected by the military.Stay warm in chilly weatherThis is a grandmother giving advice to some younger people. P lease cover up the little children. It gets chilly in the stores and we have a couple more months of cooler weather. And the older folks should keep warm, too. We dont want you getting sick and passing your germs along.Native American discrimination?We are entering 2012 and the group most discriminated against is Native Americans. Everybody is worried about where they are from and what continent they were born on, but the truth is, the most discriminated group is the group who was here before everyone. The Indian people need to get their land back and everyone else needs to stop thinking its theirs. Go back to where y ou came from. You brought poverty and crime. Give the land back to who deserves it.More ways to conserveId like to give a couple more ideas on how to conserve water. I keep water in the refrigerator so I dont have to wait for the tap water to get cold, and I turn the faucet under the sink in the bathroom to low, so I dont waste water when I brush my teeth. Thinking about the primariesThe primaries are for Americans to vote for who they think is best to serve this nation. The election will be a vote against President Obama and his job killing war on the middle class. Unjust regulation, litigation, taxation and mandated health care are big boots on the necks of small businesses and small banks, which by the way, employ the vast majority of the middle class. Only the big corporations and big banks can afford the burdensome costs that Obamination has caused. So yes, America, even though he says he is for the middle class, President Obama is destroying the middle class with his policies and it has always been the middle class that has made America prosperous and free. M any, if not all, of the worlds greatest leaders were womanizers, but they improved the lives of regular people. A mans sex life is none of our business and what was done to Her man Cain and his family is unforgivable. If Mr. Cain had been another bankrupt career politician, he would have sacr ificed his familys well-being, but he is not a career politician. I live in Florida and Mr. Cain is on the ballot here. I will be voting for the true outsider. I will be voting for a man who knows what a small business needs to grow and provide jobs for all Americans. I will be voting for the 9-9-9 plan, which will take power and control and corrupt cronyism out of W ashington. No deductions, no loopholes, no subsidies to the powerful. No special interests payoff to corrupt, entitled politicians. I will be voting for a man who knows how to solve problems. I like a president with a clear view of foreign policy. Why do we make nice and give money to our enemies? I will be voting for a man who wants to make America energy independent. I will be voting for a man who will support a fair and just immigration policy. I will be voting for a man who will neutralize class and race warfare by just being himself, a man who has lived the true American dream. I will be voting for a true leader, Herman Cain, in the primary. Americans have said we want change in Washington, a much smaller and fiscally sound government and one whose programs work properly, while providing the service they we re originally meant to do. This man can bring us together and lead us back to prosperity. Herman Cain can and will get America back on its feet. He loves America and will never hurt her. Repeal ObamacareIf we accomplish just one thing in 2012 it should be to r epeal Obamacare. When we allow political ideology to trump the health of the individual, we have made a terrible mistake. The federal government response to Hurricane Katrina compounded a natural disaster. The present recession is an example of how politicians permitted political correctness to bring down the economy of the entire nation. The post office annually loses $5 billion and has no idea of how to correct the situation. H opefully, we can make more than one improvement next y ear, but getting rid of a federal mandate controlling our health would be super.Scare tactics didnt workD espite the scare tactics of environmentalists, shale gas is shaving energy bills for an increasing number of customers. And the savings are huge. R eflecting improving technology and significant increases in supply, in some places, prices have fallen by almost half in three years. As the industry expands, expect to hear even more positive news.Justice system failureM ichael Plumadore, a 39-year-old, is another example of how the Florida system of so-called justice is a colossal mess. Living in a trailer park in Fort Wayne, Ind., Mr. Plumadore has admitted to killing and using a chain saw to cut up the r emains of a 9-year-old girl. This despicable murderer had a criminal record here for assault and trespassing. The Florida legal system allowed him to walk free with disastrous results. Its time for reform. Got something to say?

Happy New Year. It looks like 2012 is going to be a much better year. On the business side of things, with the addition of Ver non and Chris Smith's leadership and support to our management team, H ometown News has made some great strides in several key areas. We also have some very exciting news we will be announcing soon. On the personal side of things, anything would be better than the year my wife, my family and I have gone through this past year. The year started with the passing of my father on Dec 23, a few days before 2011 began and then, of course, the terrible and tragic accident that took the life of my incredible 16-yearold son, Austin, in July. The 150 days that have followed, have been shearagony. There has not been one day that tears have not been shed by both my wife, Elaine, and myself. I know it has been tougher for her, as she was always proud of her status as a stay-athome mom. Now she stays home, but stays there alone. I, on the other hand, am able to block thesaddening thoughts through out most of the day as I focus on the challenges and successes we have experienced here at the paper. Ev eryday we spend time talking to Austin and praying to God that he is OK and doing the work that God took him to do. We talk, but you always wonder if anyone is listening. Is there really something else after you leave y our physical body? Is there r eally another chapter? You want to believe, but you always wonder if it is real or justreligions way of keeping people on the straight and narrow while we ar e here on earth. Let me tell you of a couple of recent experiences that have taken those questions away from us and have pretty much given us hard-core proof that this life is just the beginning. The first incident happened this past November. I had been having some chest pains. Not all the time but they would come at any time, last for anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes; very uncomfortable and somewhat painful. B eing the tough guy that I am, I put off going to the doctor until it was happening so often that it was becoming a problem to do all the things that I needed to do. I went in, had the first r ound of tests, and the doc said I better come back for another round as something didn't look right. The second round of tests led to a third visit to go in with the heartcatheter to see exactly where the blockage was and to put in a stint. I didn't think of it as any real big deal. It runs in the family. My father had a pacemaker implanted in his late 40s. The night before I went in, I had a talk with Austin and God. I don't want to go into details, but I would imagine it was pretty standarddialogue any of us would have in a situation like this. The next morning, Elaine took me to the hospital for the procedure. The doc was ready to go and even was bragging to the other doctors that he could tell them where the blockage was to save them some time. They put me under and slid the catheter up and into the heart. M uch to the amazement of all the personnel in the r oom, there was no blockage, it was gone. The heart was pumping as pure as a newborn baby. This gave me cause to pause. Did Austin and God fix my heart? I wanted to think so but Then it happened.

Expires 1/31/12 BusinessNew arcade is fun, stylishMARTIN COUNTY Mar tin Countys newest entertainment spot boasts a touch of contemporary design flare and fun diversions. H obe Sound Arcade, which opened about three months ago at 11181 S.E. F ederal Highway, sets itself apart with a look that r esembles a modern lounge, instead of highlighting the neon and flashing lights that characterize many of its contemporaries. I wanted to be different from the rest of them, and I guess weve accomplished that, said manager Brenn P ayne, an interior designer whos also spent about 15 y ears in the arcade business. This was the main goal. The minute people walk in the door, what I hear all the time is how beautiful it is in here and how different we are from other arcades. For get everything you think the name implies, the companys administrators said. Hobe Sound Arcade is different, beginning with a setting thats meant to invite guests to sit and visit for awhile. A seating area near the entrance, for instance, has leather chairs and a stylish lamp. Throughout the arcade hang artwork and ornate mirrors that blend with the dcor. I wanted to give the impression that the machines were not the only things that were important, Ms. Payne said. The idea is part of a broader customer service ideal, designed to anticipate and meet guests needs. A dministrators wanted a spouse who was done playing the slots to have a comfortable spot to relax while waiting for the other partner, for example. I ts deluxe Keurig coffeemaker is another great touch, allowing customers to make individual cups of gourmet coffee. B ut these are some of the little extras. The main attractions are the 76 machines that include old favorites and popular sensations, including Bingo, Pot of Gold and its exclusive Sweepstakes machines. I ts guests are area residents who stop by for brief games or seasoned players who spend hours trying their luck against the computers. At H obe Sound Arcade, special events and promotions are part of the regular calendar, with bingo on W ednesdays and pizza on Fr idays. The company lists promotions on its website, www.hobesoundarcade.com as well as opportunities for guests to earn prizes in drawings and other giveaways. I ts birthday club is a monthly celebration, held on the last Friday or Saturday, with cake and balloons. C elebrants get $5 additional free play. W e celebrate all day long, so they can come in at any time on that day for their prize, Ms. Payne said. W ith its catered parties, free refreshments, food and deluxe snacks, odds are yo u ll love it at Hobe Sound Arcade, as the companys tag line states. H obe Sound Arcade is open from 10 a.m.to 10 p.m. on Mondays to Thursdays and from 10 a.m.until the last customer leaves on Fridays to Sunday.For more information,call (772) 5464300.

Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or e-mail earls@earlstewarttoyota.co m. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m. This column originally appeared March 4,2011.There ought to be a law against advertising any product, especially cars, while concealing information in the fine print, which completely negates the material facts advertised in the bold print, especially price. Electronic media ads are the worst offenders. The way the fine-print disclosure is shown on TV is a joke. Its literally impossible to read the fine print due to the blurred, small size and the very short length of the time its displayed. R adio fine print is equally ludicrous. Its often read at high speed, like an auctioneer on amphetamines, at a very low volume and often at the beginning of the commercial so listeners dont even know its part of the advertisement. What do our lawmakers and regulators think when they see these TV ads and listen to the radio ads? The lawmakers either dont care that misleading ads are r outinely deceiving the public or theyve been paid off by industry lobbyist to look the other way. F or purposes of this article, I had to choose a print ad because, like you, I cant decipher the fine print in radio or TV ads. I chose this ad at random from lots of car dealer ads in the Palm B each Post and the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel on S aturday, Feb. 26. This particular ad ran in both of these newspapers. Its not the most deceptive ad, not the least, just a typical S outh Florida newspaper car ad with important facts hidden from the reader by putting them in the fine print. Y ou can view the ad for y ourself by clicking on www.AnatomyOfACarAd.co m. You will see the ad as whole and a blow-up of the fine print so you can read it. What follows is an explanation of how the fine print would affect your decision to purchase if you were to r ead and understand what y ou read. Pr ices plus tax, tag, title, dealer installed options. All of the advertised prices are understated by accessories (options) that the dealer has chosen to add to the advertised car. These are typically lowcost items to the dealer that are marked up to you, the customer, by a huge margin. E xamples are pin stripes, nitrogen in tires, glass etch, window tint, door edge guards, protection packages, paint sealant, fabric protections, road hazard assistance, etc. A typical markup from dealer installed options would cost the dealer under $100 and be priced to you more than $1,000. All rebates applied including owner loyalty, lease loyalty and military r ebates. Customer must qualify for all rebates and incentives. Dealer retains all r ebates and incentives. The dealer keeps all r ebates, even those you might have seen advertised by the manufacturer. You have to sign a form before purchase that assigns your r ebates to the dealer. But the worst part of this is the assumption that you qualify for owner loyalty, lease loyalty and military r ebates. Loyalty rebates mean that y ou have to have purchased or leased that make car and trade it in to qualify. The odds are you drive another make. The military rebate is especially outrageous. It often amounts to $1,000 and only applies if you are currently on active duty in the U.S. military. In other words, the prices that you r ead in this ad are understated by thousands in r ebates that you very likely will not qualify for. All vehicles subject to prior sale. Must present ad at time of purchase to r eceive advertised offer. Offer expires date of publication. N otice in the main part of the ad, each advertised car has a number next to it. One example is STK#110272. This number is the stock number of one particular car and that is the only car available at that price. If the dealer tells you that car was sold hes not obligated to sell an identical car at the same price even if he has several. If he does sell you an identical car, he can now add his dealer fee. If you buy a car today and see it advertised for less tonight thats too bad. If you came in the next day on the ad, thats too bad, too. D ealer not responsible for typographical errors or omissions. Vehicle art for illustration only. Optional equipment or varying model may be shown. This essentially says that y ou cannot hold the dealer to anything you read or see pictured in the advertisement. He can say that the price was a mistake and that the truck with the luxury wheels and sunroof was for illustrative purposes only. Offers not in conjunction. O ther restrictions apply. See dealer for complete details. If the dealer advertised 0 percent financing and no down payment, you cant get both. Other restrictions means that just in case the dealer didnt cover everything in the fine print there may be other restrictions that he can bring up later. When you come in to buy that new car or truck, F riday, January 6, 2012 A8 Martin CountyHometown News 220-1005Massage Facials Reflexology Lymphatic Drainage CranioSacral Therapy Raindrop TherapyJANUARY SPECIAL90 MINUTE MASSAGE WITH REFLEXOLOGY$8000 951 SECENTRAL PARKWAY STUARTExpires 1/31/12www.DharmaMassage.MassageTherapy.comDHARMA MASSAGE & BODYWORK AngelosW ine CellarElegant International Hand-Picked Estate Wines20% OFFon 12 bottles15% OFFon 6 bottlesNATIONWIDE SHIPPING Beautifully Packaged Glossy Red Gift Boxes, A vailable in 3 or 6 bottle packages Starting at $69BiggestDiscounts in the AreaVisit Us At:angeloswinecellar.com Email:SelectWinesSouth@gmail.com Cedar Pointe Plaza2471 SEOcean Blvd, Stuart 772.220.4881 2461 SE OCEAN BLVD.,STUART,FL 34996 CEDAR POINTE PLAZA772-221-0222LAMPSHADESLARGEST SELECTION IN FLORIDA OUTSTANDING SELECTION OF LAMPS EXCLUSIVE TO THE LAMP CONNECTION EXPERT LAMP REPAIR AND RESTORATIONCome Visit Our New Expanded Showroom!

hell give you those details. We will beat any local, v alid, printed advertisement from another authorized Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep dealer within the SE Business Center Zone on any new identically equipped in stock vehicle. If we fail to beat the price we will give y ou $1,000.

If we beat the competitors price you must buy the vehicle from Arrigo. Dealer r eserves the right to purchase the vehicle from other dealer. The price guarantee doesnt apply to dealerinstalled options, which r epresent thousand(s) in profit to the dealer. The dealer reserves the right to purchase the exact car from his competitor. Theres zero chance that his competitor will sell him that car, lose the sale and give it to his competition. $3,000 cash or trade equity due at signing.

The bottom line is that y ou should never buy a car in response to an advertisement. The deck is stacked against you and you cant win the game. The only way to get a good price on a new or used car is to first decide on the exact year, make and model and which options you want and compare prices with at least three dealers.

explained away. Austin sent me a text. That's right. A ustin texted me. Let me back up. Fr iday night, Dec.23 Elaine and I were sitting on the back patio, watching TV and talking. Most evenings, at the end of the day, Elaine gets upset. She misses our son. She can look up to see his bedroom door where he would come out and lean ov er the railing to ask us a question or tell her he loved her. She was upset. We talked about him for a few minutes and I tried to make her feel better. I then set my phone down on the patio table and went inside to get something out of our ro om. Inside the bedroom I continued to talk to Austin. "Son, we love you. We wish you were here with us. A ustin, you have to let your mom know you are OK. C ome to her, do something, please just let her know you are OK." I went back out to the patio and noticed the phone flashing that I had a message. I clicked on the message and saw that there was an attachment. I didn't r ecognize the number so I asked, "Elaine, do you know this number? (772) 5592567." S he said, "That sounds so familiar" she paused, squinting her eyes as she dug deep in her brain for the o wner of that number. Then she looked at me and said, "Steve, that is Austins number." What? What? Austins number? Austins phone has not had service for five months, his phone is in a zip bag under the counter. How could that be Austin's number? There is a ton of strange thingssurroundingthis miracle. The fact that it was sent to my email but never w ent to our email server, only my phone was one of them. I could not open the attachment on my phone so I had to forward it to my email. I went inside to open the attachment on our computer. O pening this attachment has changed our life and our outlook on the never-ending question, is there life after death? I opened the attachment and was shocked to see that it was a picture of Austins grandpa. His grandfather passed away last Dec. 23, one year to the day. This picture was pulled up attached to a "photo gallery" that resides on our computer. I clicked on the arrow to see the next picture. It was Au stin. Nearly every other picture on this photo gallery was a picture of Austin, back when everything was OK. He let his mother know that he was OK, he let us know he was with grandpa. A ctually, the photo shows y ou what we first saw when the message came to the phone, 9:01p ...FW:IMGOO. Was he telling us...I am good? J ust for the record. I went to the ATT store to see how this could have possibly happen. According to them, it couldn't. There is no service to that number. No one else has that number. That number does not exist, at least not in this world.

Cash, Check or Credit Card only Out & about MARTIN COUNTY G orgeous is the perfect word to describe the citrusand-saffron-finished, incredibly flavorful and unbelievably hearty seafood paella at Manatee I sland Bar & Grill. P lump shrimp, giant lobster claw meat, mussels and clams crown this feast, flavored with chorizo sausage and a tomato broth with vegetables and rice. It s the latest example of how Manatee Island Bar & Grill has lived up to its reputation of serving great food thats fresh, inspired and always interesting. Located on the Manatee P ocket in Port Salerno, the r estaurants menu features a slew of fun and original offerings. I ts margarita mussels, for instance, is the waterfront spots homage to the frozen cocktail and the seafood favorite. Chef Scott Enterlines creation uses Prince Edward I sland mussels sauted in tomatoes, garlic, shallots and cilantro in tequila, triple sec liqueur and keylime juice, a combination one reviewer hailed as divine. A single taste of this dish will whisk you off to a faraway palm tree and sandy beach destination, the proprietors promise, and it does. I ts herb-seared grouper is a sophisticated dish, made with the fresh, dense and flaky fish. The grouper is lightly breaded and sauted with tomatoes, shallots, leeks, garlic and herbs in a white wine sauce for an entre that is perfectly finished and balanced. R estaurateurs Michael P olitano and Paul Gonnella r ely on the creativity of their chef, who worked at Mr. Gonnellas boutique hotel on Nantucket Island for about eight years and had access to premium ingredients and specialty foods. I try to craft dishes and put my own twist on it, said Mr. Enterline, whos worked as a chef since 1988. At Manatee Island Grill, the crab cakes alone would more than make the trip worthwhile. Theyre light and delicious, with very little filler and an island r emoulade sauce thats perfectly spiced, but not overbearing.

Photo courtesy of Seacoast National BankThelma Washington of Gertrude Walden Child Care Center, and Amber Garren and Suzanne Granfield of Seacoast National Bank help the children unload items for the centers supply closet.Bank helps local families with supply driveMARTIN COUNTY S eacoast National Bank associates came to the need of children and families of the Gertrude Walden Childcare Center in Stuart delivering much-needed supplies before Christmas. The centers 102 children anxiously lined up for a turn to help unload an overflowing truck of diapers, toilet paper, detergent and other personal care items to r estock the Centers supply closet. W e are seeing a shift in family needs, said Thelma W ashington, director of the childcare center for 16 years. F ood stamps dont buy personal items and many of our families need toilet paper, diapers and laundry detergent. The supply closet is a new concept for us and the donations came at just the right time. Our closet was almost empty. The collection stemmed from a tour with Seacoast N ational Bank Treasure C oast President Tom Wilkinson and senior vice president/retail regional manager Eileen Hatt, at the childcare center. When told of the empty supply closet, Mr. W ilkinson saw an opportunity to help. I know our associates are some of the most generous people in our community and knew they would r espond to the need, he said. S eacoast associate Amber G arren sent out a company email and a call to action. In a mere three weeks, Seacoast associates had collected an overflowing truckload of items to be donated to the center. I had no idea this would be so great, said Ms. Washington. P eople like this, who come and help and make this come true, are wonderful people in our community. S eacoast National Bank is the operating arm of Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope the holidays left you with pleasant memories and new-found promise for 2012. F or us, a successful year in golf may mean just getting out a few more times to play. It may mean a new set of irons or a trip to a course yo u ve longed to play. Per haps it means a careerbest round or one with an old friend or relative. Whatever it is, I hope that y ou find it. F or the more famous people in golf, I have a few predictions for 2012. While I am nowhere near as famous as Nostradamus, I hope I can be just a bit more accurate with my crystal ball. W ith that, here are my top predictions for 2012. In a move to increase his slipping chances of catching J ack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods petitions the powers-that-be at Augusta National to trim their invite list for The M asters to 18 players. S eeing as Tigers lone win in the last two years came at his own, limited-field event, he hopes the same-size field at Augusta will better his odds of winning at put him that much closer to Jacks r ecord for major wins. Alas, despite protests by Al S harpton and the Rev. Jessie J ackson outside Magnolia Lane, the Green Jackets will politely turn down Tigers r equest. While Tiger will be in the hunt, it will be Jason D ay who holds off Luke Donald to slip on the coat come weeks end. To which T iger will comment sorely, I wouldnt have even invited him. At the U.S. Open, we will witness the most tightly packed leaderboard in decades. With the Olympic Club playing to a mere 7,060 yards, nearly the entire field will find themselves in the hunt. N ot having to hit long irons and fairway woods into concrete-hard greens will help the short hitters stay in contention. I look for a short-but-accurate player to win this major. We may even see someone from the Champions Tour hoist the cup by nightfall on Fathers Day. On the flip side, I expect to see the youngest champion in history win a major on the ladies side of golf. Lexi Thompson will win a major this year and become the y oungest woman to do so by nearly a year. That is if Yani T seng cools off long enough for anyone other than her to win any tournament. At the Open Championship, Sergio Garcia will finally get that giant gorilla off his back. He will claim his first major in style beating the hottest youngster in golf, Rory McIlroy and the man everyone thought hed be rival to, Tiger Woods, in a playoff at Royal Lytham & St. Annes. F or Garcia it will complete his career comeback that began with back-toback wins on the European T our late this past year. For T iger, it will be his second near miss of the year, something that will begin to eat at him as the year progresses. At the years final major, we will see a shootout between no less than six 20somethings. In the end, Rickie Fowler will triumph. At his press conference after the tournament, he will show up sans hat and with a new haircut. I think we will see the demise of a fine man and golfer this year. Ernie Els putting woes will continue and he will go from the belly putter, to the long putter, to putting left-handed, to trying a wedge and then a hybrid in an effort to drop a putt. Els slipped from 42nd in putting in 2010 to 180th in 2011. Its difficult to stay competitive and even harder to stay positive when you cannot make a 3-foot putt. The final nail in the coffin for Els, and the beginning of a slide for others, will come when the Royal & Ancient actually bans the long putter. There is currently a rule limiting how short a putter may be. While its difficult to limit the overall length of a specific club, I expect to see the R&A make the swinging of a club by anchoring it to any spot on the body, other than the hands or the wrists, against the rules. With its usual aplomb, the USGA will wait another two years before implementing the same rule. F inally, we will see a mainstay of the U.S. Ryder C up team not make the squad. Sadly, Phil Mickelson, who has seen more than his fair share of mountains to climb, will slide out of the players qualifying for the team on points. Its unlikely that captain Davis Love III, will pick him with so many hot, y oung players to choose from.

Some of us have already broken them. We may want to exercise more, eat better or lose weight. Per haps we want to reconnect with friends and family. Some of us may want to try something new. Thats our focus this month. In this issue of Forever Young, youll meet people who tried something they hadnt done before. In some cases it was exercising or taking up a sport. In other cases, it was a change in career or a new pursuit after retirement. Some of the people had physical limitations. Others had survived cancer and rethought their priorities. The common thread for all the stor ies is that it is never too late to try something new. It doesnt have to be a lifechanging move. Sometimes its as simple as taking up bridge or ballroom dancing. All of the people interviewed for these pages have taken that first step, the hardest one of all. Most were apprehensive. Many were afraid theyd make fools of themselves. They decided not let that bother them. What they found was that challenging themselves kept them young, gave them confidence and made them feel better about themselves. We hope you will take that message to heart. If there is something youve always wanted to do, perhaps this is the y ear you give it a try.

4MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Swimmer KEEPS COMPETITIVE EDGE STUART Ray Bowles began swimming in high school, but he didnt compete because there was no swim team. At M anhattan College, he was on the swim team for four years and also competed for the New York Athletic Club. Mr. Bowles received a masters degree in speech therapy from Columbia University and coached swimming at the community pool during the summer. He spent his professional career as a teacher and speech therapist in Westchester County, N.Y. He was a member of the Westchester Masters Club, an organization for people 19 and over who wish to continue competitive swimming. T en years ago, Mr. Bowles retired. His sister and son both lived in Florida and he and his wife, Pauline, moved here in 2001. They settled at Martin Downs Country Club in Palm City. The Sports Resort here has a 25-yard pool, he said. That was important to me. I need that to practice in. Other pools were smaller. That was the determining factor for me. Mr. Bowles has competed in the Martin County Senior G ames five times, has gone to the state championships and has competed twice in the National Senior Games. This year, he brought home a medal, coming in third in the 500-yard freestyle. His time was nine minutes and 11 seconds. It was only the second time he had competed at that distance. Mr. Bowles practices almost every day. He will swim anywhere from 50-75 laps, do different exercises and drills or time himself, swimming for speed. A y ear ago, at the state championships, I went for distance instead of speed and came in third, he said. There is a difference. You have to pace yourself and the breathing is different. Mr. Bowles next goal is to lower his speed, which was a personal best. The next challenge is to do the 500 freestyle in under By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See SWIMMER, Page 15Martin Downs Sports Resort Member Raymond Bowles, 75, displays his bronze medal from the National Senior Games. Bowles is a Palm City resident and swims an average of 50 laps every day.Photo courtesy of Nancy McCarthy

5MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Document your sources in genealogy Youve been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have you noted where y ou obtained this information? W ill you remember where you found it, next month, next year, or 10 years from now? The answer is a guaranteed No. So, starting today, document everything before you get too far down the road and have to backtrack. This will help your r esearch tremendously in the future, when you need to find that elusive bit of information that will help you climb the inevitable brick wall. It also gives other researchers confidence in your work. When I first started researching, I excitedly took down every fact I found. Of course it was correct, it was right there on the official document, in the book at the library, or Grandmother told me. For tunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can r emember where the tombstone is, but I didnt actually document it in my database. There are still many facts in my database that are not documented properly. It is still one of my major downfalls, getting caught up in the story and not wanting to take the time to document. S ending your genealogy out into the world without citing your sources is sending it out with no v alidation. Almost invariably, when I find some exciting new fact about my ancestor, there is no source given. This leaves me totally in the dark. Exactly where did this date, spouse name, etc., come from? Someone must have known, but chances are, the person that put the information on the Internet, or in the book, just copied it from someone else, who also copied it from someone. As far as I know, it could have, and might as well be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with the exact location from where it was obtained. A source, regardless of how informal, is where we obtained the information. It may have come from a probate record, family Bible, census record, or from Grandma Bessy. Everything needed for another researcher to find this source, should be included. This leaves a trail for you, as well as others who want to follow your line of descent. Tr aditionally, sources have been classified as primary and secondary. A primary record is one created close to the event, such a birth or marriage record or by a person r easonably knowledgeable about the event. A secondary record is one that was created sometime later. The secondary source is not viewed as being as accurate as a primary source, since time and distance often dims memories and distorts the facts. So a secondary source should always be backed up with as many other sources as possible, including a primary one when available. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being corr ect. Death certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parents names. Tombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A r elative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name. This makes a strong case for thoroughly researching each person and finding as many sources as you can. GENEALOGYBRENDA K.

6MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Y oga helps keep a body young and limber STUART When Sherry Killila lived in Ohio, she worked as a paralegal for insurance companies. Her first job involved appeals for medical claims. H er second job involved surety and bonds for old oil and gas wells the company had bonded. She worked in the field, often walking through rural areas searching to see if the wells were still there or if theyd been abandoned. When she and her husband moved to Florida in 2003, he had a job here. She did not have one and she decided to take her time and go in a different direction from what she had been doing. Ms. Killila had taken some yoga classes in Ohio. When you work full-time, you cant r eally delve into it, she said. I took some classes in Palm City and thought maybe I could get certified. Ms. Killila took an online certification course offered by the National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association. It involved studying material sent on D VDs, passing tests and submitting films and pictures to demonstrate that she knew what she was doing. I t took me four months, she said. It was a lot of physiology, about the functions of the body and how it fits together with what youre doing. While she was getting her certification, she was going to classes led by another instructor. I did some of her classes with her and it was fun, she said. We started a chair yoga class and it evolved into my doing it on my own. T oday, Ms. Killila teaches chair and mat yoga to seniors. At 63, she understands the concerns and limitations of older adults. She doesnt have a studio, so she travels to communities to teach classes to groups of seniors. Y oga is something you can enjoy and have fun with all your life, she said. I t s not just physical. Its also a mindset. F or chair yoga, Ms. Killila says that the only requirement is to be able sit. For the mat classes, participants must be able to go down to the floor and get back up. I adapt the class to the participants, she said. I have ladies over 90 years old and quite a few in their 70s and 80s. M any studies have shown benefits to doing yoga and Ms. Killila emphasizes those benefits that are especially important as we age. Y ou learn how to sit correctly and breathe more efficiently and increase the volume in the lungs, she said. We work on increasing muscle tone to r emain independent, upright and walking. Flexibility and balance decrease in everyone, and no one wants to start falling. There are other, less tangible benefits to yoga, as well. I f you are in class with people you like, doing something you enjoy, you feel better, she said. Exercise releases hormones like serotonin, the anti-depressant hormone. I do two gentle meditation and relaxation exercises at the beginning and end of the class. The first exercise is to bring your attention into the room and not think about anything else. It helps to maintain focus and concentration and if you meditate every day they can be increased. F or many people, the hardest part of y oga is coming through the door the first time. Y oga is not a competitive sport, Ms. K illila said. Its all about what you can do. It makes you go inward. Y oure doing your poses, clearing y our mind and focusing on the position of your hands and your feet. You become more aware of how you walk and your posture. If you become aware, y ou can help yourself. Ms. Killilas classes are not limited to women. A few brave men have attended and some have even noted an improvement in their golf swings. Its something to think about. S enior groups wishing to start chair or mat yoga classes in their communities should call Sherry Killila at (772) 3412320.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG FBI FAMILY NOW SINGING AND DANCING STUART In his 34 years with the FBI, Chris Mazzella fought organized crime, public corruption and drug smuggling. He helped put a lot of bad guys behind bars. H is biggest catch, though, was one of his first, a young clerical worker in the New York office named Jeanette Mar inello. They were married in 1967, when Chris competed agents training. M y Bureau career ended, Jeanette said. For 15 years we moved around the country while raising three children. Chris career took them to New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia, W ashington, D.C., and Miami. An attorney as well as an agent, he took an advisory position in Miami in 1981 to settle down with his growing family in a warm climate. T oday, Chris Mazzella serves as inspector general for Miami-Dade C ounty. He has begun another career, inspired, in part, by Jeanette, who is a singer and dancer. Chris sings in a duet called We2 with Judy Desantis and both Mazzellas are directors of Shiloh Theatrical Pr oductions. The community theater is taking a break this year to reorganize financially. Jeanette, as president, and Chris, as treasurer, are seeking ways to bring the company back in 2013. J eanette, a long-time dancer, had been doing Jazzercise for years. When they moved to Palm City in 2002, she became an instructor. In 2006, she opened her own franchise. She also began performing in community theater with the Barn Theatre and Shiloh. I v e been in over 27 shows, she said. I love to sing, love to dance, love to act. I love working with other people. When its age-approriate, Im there. In 2009, after fighting breast cancer, J eanette sold her franchise. Shes r eturned to an earlier love, tap dancing, and performs with the Treasure C oast Tappers. Chris Mazzellas path to performing was a bit different. I played trumpet for my high school band, he said. I had appreciation for music from my brother, who was a professional musician. After 33 y ears at the FBI, still working fulltime, I started dabbling in the theater. F our years ago, I got into singing professionally.

On Jan. 31, Florida Republican voters go to the polls to say wholl get Floridas delegates to the GOP national convention in Tampa this August. While Florida Democrats wont vote in a presidential primary most observers say its virtually certain that the Democratic national convention will nominate President Obama F loridas Jan. 31 primary election could play a major role in the outcome of the r ace for the Republican nomination. To help older Floridians sort out where candidates stand on issues important to voters 50+, AARP Florida is helping voters to track the candidates positions especially on critical pocketbook issues such as protecting and strengthening Social Security and M edicare. AARP is nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates for any election or contribute money to any politicalaction committee or campaign. AARP does work to educate its 37 million members, including 2.7 million members in Florida, on key issues. In O ctober, an AARP Florida poll showed a significant and troubling gap between where some Republican candidates stood on cuts to Social S ecurity and Medicare and where F lorida Republican voters stood. The poll showed that by huge margins at least two to one GOP voters stoutly opposed cuts to future recipients Social S ecurity benefits, or cuts to Medicare benefits, as a way to reduce the federal deficit. F or example, Florida Republicans who identified themselves as Tea Party supporters, and who also said they had attended Tea Party events, opposed cuts to Social Security for future beneficiaries as a way to reduce the deficit by a margin of 56.1 to 37.9 percent. The same voters opposed cuts to Medicare as a way to reduce the deficit by 62.1 to 31.8 percent, almost exactly two to one. In other groups of Florida Republican voters, the margins were far more lopsided. Hispanic Republicans opposed Social Security cuts as a deficit-reduction measure by 84.5 percent to 13.5 percent, a crushing sixto-one margin. While Florida Republicans overall opposed cuts to Medicare as a means of reducing the deficit by 70.4 percent to 22.2 percent, Hispanic R epublicans opposed Medicare cuts 77 percent to 16.5 percent, more than a four-to-one margin. Y et much of the political buzz about the GOP primary has centered on ideas for cutting Social Security benefits for future retirees, or reductions to M edicare reimbursements, as a way of lowering the federal governments operating deficit. AARP believes this poll shows a startling disconnect between what W ashington and the candidates are thinking about Social Security and M edicare, and what Florida GOP voters want them to do. The poll showed that those Florida R epublicans likely to vote in the Jan. 31 primary are overwhelmingly 50+, for whom Social Security and Medicare are very important issues. AARP Florida believes it can play an important role by helping voters learn where candidates stand on these critical issues. To make sure voters are getting accurate information, we have posted unedited video voters guides in which several candidates explain their views on Social Security and Medicare in their o wn words. The voters guide can be found at www.aarp.org/youearnedit If yo u re registered as a Democrat or independent, stay tuned for AARPs voter-education efforts later in the year. O ur association will focus on helping voters get access to important information on state and Congressional candidates and issues in preparation for primary elections in August and general elections in November.

9MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Though its common to ring in the New Year by making resolutions for the year, its far less popular to set goals for the next 12 months. Resolutions and goals might be similar, but theyre not exactly the same. When setting goals, men and women are attempting to develop a plan for the year ahead with the intent of being in a better place in 365 days. Successful resolutions are typically far less encompassing. While resolutions are goaloriented, men and women often make just one resolution that does not require a plan so much as some dedication. For instance, a goal of being more financially secure will require a plan that must be implemented for it to be a success. A resolution to quit smoking might involve some advice from health professionals, but in general its up to the individual to simply stop smoking. When setting goals for the next 12 months, consider the following tips. Brainstorm some ideas. Goals should pertain to all aspects of life, from career goals to personal goals to anything you want to accomplish around the house. B efore setting any goals, brainstorm as many ideas as possible for each area of your life. Write these ideas down, no matter how big or small they might be even though you might not decide to pursue each and every goal you come up with. The purpose of this is just to get some ideas flowing and to use those ideas as a foundation. If two or more ideas are similar, such as losing weight and eating healthier, then you can combine those later on and make them one goal to simply be healthier a year from now. Rank goals by their importance to you. Goals will have varying degrees of importance, and this can help you to rank them by which ones you feel are most important. This doesnt mean you cant accomplish each goal on y our list. But prioritizing goals can make it easier to accomplish them. A good approach to take is to accomplish a high-priority goal, then reward yourself by tackling a more lighthearted goal thats less of a priority. For instance, if one of your biggest priorities is to install new siding on the house and you accomplish this goal, then reward yourself by next working on one of your more funoriented goals, such as visiting a water park or attending a ballgame. Such a balance and reward system can provide motivation and make for a fun and productive year to boot. Establish a time frame. When setting goals with no time frame in mind, its easy to procrastinate and downplay the significance of the goals. When setting goals, establish a time frame to increase y our chances of being successful. F or instance, if you have a goal to save X amount of money over the next 12 months, give yourself monthly savings markers to meet. This can help keep you on schedule and ensure you will achieve y our goal come the end of the Setting goals for the New Yearmetrocreativeconncection.comFor Hometown News See GOALS, 10 An exciting new publication From celebrating the active lifestyles of Floridas boomers 5 separate local editions,one for each county served by 25,000 copies of each edition will be home delivered and available for single-copy pick-upTO ADVERTISE CALL TODAY

You might realize some goals have become bigger priorities while others are no longer as important, and thats perfectly alright. But once you have passed the planning stage and started to pursue a goal, track your progress and stay the course if its going well. If not, reconsider your plan and decide if its best to lay out another course of action. S etting goals for the year ahead is a great way to ensure the next 12 months will be productive and fruitful.GoalsF rom page 9 To submit items for Forever Young, email the information to foreveryoungMC@ hometownnewsol.com or fax it to (772) 465-5301.

12MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG A champagne and cinnamon raisin toast New Year! AN ew Year! A new calendar! All the doctors appointments have been crossed off birthdays celebrated holidays enjoyed Time to do it all over again! There was a time in my life that I thought N ew Years Eve was the mother of all adult parties. Celebrating with friends, wearing spandex and heels and feeling like I had a terrible flu the next day were the norm. U ntil motherhood descended. When my fledglings were still in the nest and snuggled in by 9 p.m. I was the Waker. I woke them all to come sit with me and watch the ball drop, and was usually r ewarded with daughter No. 1 moaning, Thats nice Mom can we go back to bed now? And mumbled grumblings from daughters No. 2 through four concerning the sanity of waking someone up in the middle of the night to watch TV when the waker informs them daily that they watch too much TV. As they will years and life events fly past in a blur of school plays, report cards, (theirs) job transfers and the gaining of a few pounds (Mine). Now Im the Wakee. Mom! Y ou said you would come and celebrate with us! The ball is going to drop in five minutes and we are making raisin toast, do you want y ours with cream cheese? When I asked this enthusiastic 12-year-old why we were celebrating with raisin toast, the answer made perfect sense. Partiers sip champagne to celebrate, champagne is made from grapes, and grapes turn into raisins! This champagne cousin makes a wonderful toast, literally. Especially if enjoyed snuggled on the couch with loved ones and hot tea served in the good china. Mo re life changing events for my offspring graduations, coming of age, starting college, two of them living on their own more poundage added to my hips and I have become both the Waker and the Wakee. This provided me with the opportunity to to question the mental stability of the Wakers. I answered the giggly midnight call with, What the heck are you doing out on the worst night of the year?! Youre not drinking, are you? Do you really think calling the one person who worries about you with each breath is the most mentally balanced thing to do? Yes, I love you, and I thank you from the bottom my heart for thinking about your mother and raisin bread when you could be kissing someone. Can I go back to bed now? The tears that flowed when the doorbell r ang and my offspring walked in toting loaves of raisin bread and cream cheese while I was still holding the phone dried quickly as we woke their siblings to join us. Only now it was child No. 5 who was declaring the loss of mental cognizance by the three of us. To this day he still allows he had to eat six pieces of toast because he feared for his health should he refuse. The r est of us allow we feared for his health should he eat the seventh. A word to the wise: Chasing-a-caffeine-and-raisin-filled 6-year-old around the couch to rip a smashed piece of toast from his hand is best not done in a nylon gown and bunny slippers, while laughing hysterically. The New Years Eve that rolled around after several more graduations, a couple of new additions to our little clan, and more than a couple of additional pounds was for me one of the more memorable ones. Due to certain changes involving Power Surges, sleepless nights and Empty Nest Syndrome I w ent full circle and am once again the Waker and once again the subject of my mental stability came up in the conversation. B eginning with daughter No. 1 and working my way down I struck gold on my third telephone try. My H appy New Year!! was met with, M om! I totally understand you are having problems sleeping and your thermostat is on the fritz, but menopause is not supposed to make me miserable for 10 more years! And then its supposed to be mine!

13MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG A man of many interests is never bored I am a man of many interests and hobbies. S ince I was a kid I have been a serious fisherman and I have pursued that hobby all across the U nited States. I have fly fished for brook trout in the r ushing streams of the high R ocky Mountains, trolled for salmon and walleye in the Great Lakes, trapped crawfish in the swamps of Louisiana, and caught horned pout in Maine. I have landed bonito in Southern California and scooped up grunion from the beach. I have caught cutthroat trout in Idaho and large mouth bass from the Santee Cooper in S outh Carolina. With a fly rod I caught small mouth, northern and white bass in the Wolf River w est of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Of course, I have caught most of the fish that swim in Florida waters both fresh and salt. I have given fishing my all. F or most of my life I have also been a car guy and have restored many classic autos. I did a 1959 Chevy pick-up, a very rare 1960 F acel Vega, one of only 200 handmade in Paris, France. I had a 1970 Mercedes, a 1977 Lincoln V ersailles, a Chrysler sedan, a 1966 Plymouth Valiant, and a Br icklin gull wing sports car. I did a fabulous 1949 Chrysler Woody Co nvertible and many more. I loved each and every one of them. I am a lifelong sports fan and chased most of the balls when I was a young man. It was my honor to see Roberto Clemente play in Pittsburghs venerable F orbes Field and I saw Sandy K oufax pitch in Chavez Ravine. I watched Stan Musial play a game against Willie Mays in the original B ush Stadium in St. Louis. As a y oung man I saw a game between the old Washington Senators and the Philadelphia Athletics in D.C. I saw Harmon Killebrew hit one out in Minneapolis, and Ernie B anks do the same in Wrigley F ield. Always a football fan, I once LAND LINESD AN SMITH See LANDLINES, Page 18

S ipping tea and chewing toast is almost as good via the modern technology of cell phones as it is in person. I cant think of another person for whom the bumper sticker Please be patient Gods not done with me yet is more appropriate than me, I have been perpetually unfinished for many decades. Evolving and revolving around those that I love and whatever the world hands me is a full-time job for me and Im thoroughly enjoying every moment. Sometimes it is to the consternation of those who take life more seriously than I do. This year Im resolving to not re solve. I am replacing resolves with wishes. I wish my bathroom scale would take a backward slide. I wish my tongue would freeze in place at certain times. I wish I could remember to buy books on disks so I could read them on the way to work B ut most of all I wish you raisin toast, hot tea and hearts full of enough love to enjoy them.Y earFrom page 12 Show: 10 a.m. Jan. 14-15 in downtown Jensen Beach.

While some retirees might scoff at that remark, others no doubt agree theres an element of truth to it. Per haps boredom is one reason many seniors continue to work past retirement age. According to the Congressional Research Ser vice, 47 percent of male seniors and 34 percent of female seniors were employed in 2007. That those figures were from 2007 is significant, as it indicates this was before the economic downturn of 2008-09, a consequence of which was more seniors returning to the workforce. F or many seniors, though, working isnt simply a means to earn money. In fact, seniors who continued working past the age of 70 earned an average of just $20,000 in 2007. Seniors also tend to work to have something to do. For seniors looking to do just that, there are a host of employment or even volunteer opportunities that can help seniors stay busy and possibly put a little extra money in their pockets.

Right now, they are also trying to save Shiloh Theatrical Productions. The community theater group, wellknown for staging big musicals, has lost money for several years. This y ear, they had to cancel the season. W e re hoping to re-emerge through fundraising and donations to come back next year, Chris said. W e re going to take a look at the business model. We may not be able to do Br oadway musicals all the time. We want to have one. Were just going to have t find a less expensive way.

Golf course. Golf courses are other seasonal businesses, at least in much of the country, that also boast lots of part-time opportunities for seniors. F or example, golf courses need rangers, who ensure all golfers play by the rules and r espect the course, and even maintenance staff, who do everything from cut the grass to maintaining gardens. These can also pull double duty, providing seniors with daily exercise to help them stay healthy. Volunteer. Many programs that help indigent citizens get by every day welcome seniors as volunteers. M eal delivery services and other programs that cater to the sick are often in need of a helping hand. School systems. Local school districts also have volunteer opportunities that can be ideal for seniors. Positions such as crossing guard or even helping out with the local athletic teams dont require much of a commitment and can be r ewarding and fun for seniors. Consultant work. Seniors who miss the thrill of business dont have to give it up completely simply because theyre retired. Many seniors earn a handsome amount of money by working as consultants, using their vast experience to help the next generation. Whats more, consultants often work on their own schedule, an ideal situation for seniors with a passion for business but an equal passion for the positives of retirement. Library. Libraries might not be as popular as they once were, but many are still going strong, and some even use volunteers and parttime employees to keep their operations running smoothly. Many libraries prefer hiring seniors thanks to their reliability and good attitude.OpportunitiesF rom page 15

18MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG watched a game between the Houston Oilers and B oston Patriots before each changed their names. In Chicagos Soldier Field I watched the great Walter Payton score many times and in Tampa I saw the Bucs in their championship season. Once I even saw the legendary El Cor dobes fight a bull in Barcelona Spain. I am a pretty fair amateur historian and some consider me to be an authority on beach racing. From time to time I am called on to speak publicly about some of my hobbies. Somehow, with all of that going on, I found time to run a construction business for 26 years and help Lana, my wife of nearly 38 years, raise two great children. WO W! I have really been busy. As most of you have guessed, these days my most r ewarding hobby is what I am doing right now writing. Since I was in fifth grade I have been told that I have the ability to spin a pretty good tale on paper. I used that talent to cruise through the English classes while in school, so if some of you detect flaws in my composition it is a result of my youthful laziness. In my life I have emptied hundreds of ballpoints and covered reams of paper with words that no one will ever read. Thats OK, for I do it mostly for myself. S ince I have been writing for this newspaper I have met many of you who have been kind enough to tell me that you enjoy what I do. That, to me, is priceless. H opefully, some of you have discovered through my simple style just how easy it is to write and will consider trying it for yourself. Writing is good for your psyche. It is a release that can cleanse the mind and perhaps even the soul. Everyone has a story to tell. Maybe it is your o wn life story or maybe the accomplishments of your grandchildren. Your subject need not be interesting to the masses. Do it for yourself. I am certain many of you have thought about it. You may have even said to yourself, I bet I could do what that Dan guy does. You know what? You are right. T ake a close look at my columns. Nothing complicated, right? I try to write as though I am talking with a friend. I work hard to keep out pretentious words that I would not use in everyday conversation. It seems to work. You need not have a huge vocabulary and if you do you certainly shouldnt hit people over the head with it. Words that are inserted to show off your language skills tend to remind your reader that someone is writing at them; not talking to them. As I said before, I write for myself. I am very fortunate to have my musings published, but if that ended tomorrow I would continue to write. I just like doing it. I encourage you to find something you enjoy doing and do the hell out of it. Who knows you may even find someone who will allow y ou to do it professionally. Thank you, H ometown News.LandlinesFrom page 13 The more sources you find, the closer you can come to deciding which is the correct data.

T een writes legislation to prevent food allergies at school cafeteriasMARTIN COUNTY A 14-yearold South Fork High School student is meeting with area lawmakers to discuss a bill she drafted that would r equire public school cafeterias to list the ingredients in foods they offer. Lauren Maunus, a freshman in the international baccalaureate program, wants to create a law to limit children's exposure to potential allergens. "I wrote this bill because of my sister," Lauren said. H er sibling, 11y ear-old Rachel, has life-threatening allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. "M y mom would have to go the county offices to see the labels of foods in the school cafeteria, and if any of the labels changed, she was not informed of it," Lauren said. "It was r eally scary. This bill would allow my sister, every time she was about to put something in her mouth, to know what was in it before she ate it." In addition to listing the ingredients in all foods, the bill re quires public school cafeterias to identify the eight major food allergens, in compliance with the 2011 Food Safety and 221-01225041 S.E.

The group meets each Sunday before sundown and encourages new people to come out and experience the sense of community through music and nature.MARTIN COUNTY The New Year will mean new visibility for businesses on Colorado Av enue, thanks to $1.2 million in funding for that area. The Colorado Avenue business district improvement project, which aims to make the area more attractive to pedestrians, secured $750,000 in state funding. The grant from the F lorida Department of Ec onomic Opportunity covers the majority of the $1.2 million city leaders estimate it will take to create on-street parking, add a roundabout at Martin Luther King Jr. Bouleva r d, a median and landscaping and make C olorado Avenue two lanes between 5th Street and Southeast Kindred. It would also pay for the r edesign of the stretch of C olorado Avenue between U.S. 1 and Dixie H ighway, reduce traffic speeds, improve pedestrian and bicycle access, increase parking and improve visibility and access to businesses along the roadway. The state provided all funds for which city officials applied, and the Stuart Community Redevelopment Agency will provide the rest of the money needed to complete the project. These improvements are in keeping with the city's CRA plan," said Te r esa Lamar-Sarno, the C ommunity Redevelopment Agency's administrator.

B ut that was exactly the occasion when Seacoast associates visited customer Ella Hartley at the Stuart Nu rsing and Restorative Ca re C enter to help celebrate her 100th birthday. The closeness of love of family and friends was evident," said Karen Balbinder, marketing specialist for Seacoast National Bank. "I t' s something we don't often see and we were honored to be there with her." The Seacoast associates presented the centenarian with balloons and a check for $100.

Like its federal counterpart, the local child's bill would protect students, as up to 20 percent of allergic r eactions occur at school, according to the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. Right now, it's not safe for R achel and kids like her to eat in the cafeteria," said D ebbie Maunus, the girls' mother. "We're so proud of Lauren. She went through the House of Representatives of the youth in government program, and because of her success has been given the opportunity to have her bill co-sponsored by r epresentatives Joe N egron, William Snyder and G ayle Harrell." Lauren's bill defeated strong competition at r egional and state levels to emerge as the winner in the F lorida YMCA Youth in Government, which teaches students about the nation's legislative and administrative processes, said Stella B oland, director of South Fo rk 's international baccalaureate program. H er work caught the attention of state legislators, and got her meetings last month with Rep. Harrell, RPo rt S t. Lucie, Sen. Negron, RS tuart and Rep.

Av enue as a key area for improvement with traffic calming and streetscaping. Cities across the country that have completed similar projects have seen r educed vacancy rates and increased private investment, sales tax revenue, and property values." Wo rk funded through the community development block grant could begin as early as this spring, officials said. "I n this new economy, it is more critical than ever that the city look at creative ways to compete with surroun ding business communities. This project has enormous potential to improve the climate for existing businesses in the C olorado Avenue corridor, as well as attract new business and jobs to the area," Ms. Lamar-Sarno said. "W e are very excited to get word of the funding, and are appreciative of the hard work of the many community organizations, businesses and individual citizens who came together to support the project." B efore applying for the grant, the redevelopment agency focused on gaining strong public feedback. It held several public hearings and meetings, garnering support from businesses and community groups. I ts supporters became so passionate about the project, many wrote letters of support that cited the project's potential economic and social benefits, and sent these documents to accompany the grant application. Officials from the Community Redevelopment Agency expect to receive the grant contract in early J anuary.

The city of Stuart wastewater treatment facility project was chosen for its goals of improving air and water quality around the facility, while integrating it with the r est of the community," said N eda Simeonova, the magazine's editorial director. "W e recognize that the second goal was especially difficult due to the increasing growth of the community. Project workers utilized advanced technology, such as solar lighting and 3D laser scanning, to help achieve their goals. They also kept the total project cost relatively low." J udges evaluated several factors when selecting this y ear's top projects. A key factor is the number of challenges a project faced and how it overcame them to meet its stated goals. J udges said they also looked for projects that stayed cost-efficient, made use of advanced technology and remained within regulations. This is a significant honor for the city of Stuart, as we have extremely high standards for protecting our environment, while being good stewards of taxpayer dollars," said Troy McDonald, city commissioner.

S he said she knocked on the door and no one answered. So she used the key and retrieved the baby jumper. As she and a friend were leaving, the man confronted her and threatened her with a gun. When confronted with what the woman and her friend said, the man told police "she" didn't have any r ight to be in the home. The problem with that was the police officer never mentioned the victim was a female, yet the man claimed he never saw the supposed burglar. And still having not learned his lesson, the man, as he was being arrested, maintained his innocence, but added, "I should have killed the bi---," a report said.Give him his sauceIf a server brings food and a customer finds the order doesn't match what he or she ordered, the customer usually will ask that food be r eturned and the order be corrected. Pe r haps a Martin County man wishes he would have done that. I nstead, the man, who was enraged over not getting a sauce he wanted, started throwing money around. After being escorted out of the restaurant by friends, the man returned, hit a man in the back of the head, knocked down glasses stacked on the bar and then knocked some people to the floor. And if that wasn't enough, he exited the restaurant and fought people in the parking lot. When arrested, he yelled obscenities at the officer and said that one day someone would shoot the officer in the head. One must wonder what the man would have done if his entire food order had been wrong.BlotterF rom page A1

D id it ever occur to you and some Republicans that you will all be voted out? W ake up. They already have their own people ready to step in. I know how hard you fight for felons and illegal aliens to vote, just about as hard as you try to block our brave soldier's votes. At least some felons are legal citizens. What part of illegal is so hard to understand? Cr ossing our borders is just the first law that is broken. I consider it invading a sovereign country. Driving and holding a license is a privilege. I know a few people who have been jailed for losing this privilege. What about the issue of identity theft and giving out false Social Security numbers? Again, American citizens are jailed for this crime. My daughters could not cross lines to attend public schools, y et illegal aliens are welcomed with open arms. My children could not travel to an out-of-state school and expect to get in-state tuition, yet we give it to illegal aliens, not to mention every form of public aid and top priority for scholarships. There is absolutely no respect for this country. Now the M exican flag is flown over ours. They have the right to be patriotic to a country they fled, in our homeland, yet we have to fight to be patriotic in our own country. Enough is enough, I'd move my family to Mexico when it finally empties out, but guess what, you can never become a full citizen there. Funny, their southern border is protected by the military.Stay warm in chilly weatherThis is a grandmother giving advice to some younger people. P lease cover up the little children. It gets chilly in the stores and we have a couple more months of cooler weather. And the older folks should keep warm, too. We don't want you getting sick and passing your germs along.Native American discrimination?We are entering 2012 and the group most discriminated against is Native Americans. Everybody is worried about where they are from and what continent they were born on, but the truth is, the most discriminated group is the group who was here before everyone. The Indian people need to get their land back and everyone else needs to stop thinking it's theirs. Go back to where y ou came from. You brought poverty and crime. Give the land back to who deserves it.More ways to conserveI'd like to give a couple more ideas on how to conserve water. I keep water in the refrigerator so I don't have to wait for the tap water to get cold, and I turn the faucet under the sink in the bathroom to low, so I don't waste water when I brush my teeth. Thinking about the primariesThe primaries are for Americans to vote for who they think is best to serve this nation. The election will be a vote against President Obama and his job killing war on the middle class. Unjust regulation, litigation, taxation and mandated health care are big boots on the necks of small businesses and small banks, which by the way, employ the vast majority of the middle class. Only the big corporations and big banks can afford the burdensome costs that Obamination has caused. So yes, America, even though he says he is for the middle class, President Obama is destroying the middle class with his policies and it has always been the middle class that has made America prosperous and free. M any, if not all, of the world's greatest leaders were womanizers, but they improved the lives of regular people. A man's sex life is none of our business and what was done to He r man Cain and his family is unforgivable. If Mr. Cain had been another bankrupt career politician, he would have sacr ificed his family's well-being, but he is not a career politician. I live in Florida and Mr. Cain is on the ballot here. I will be voting for the true outsider. I will be voting for a man who knows what a small business needs to grow and provide jobs for all Americans. I will be voting for the 9-9-9 plan, which will take power and control and corrupt cronyism out of W ashington. No deductions, no loopholes, no subsidies to the powerful. No special interests payoff to corrupt, entitled politicians. I will be voting for a man who knows how to solve problems. I like a president with a clear view of foreign policy. Why do we make nice and give money to our enemies? I will be voting for a man who wants to make America energy independent. I will be voting for a man who will support a fair and just immigration policy. I will be voting for a man who will neutralize class and race warfare by just being himself, a man who has lived the true American dream. I will be voting for a true leader, Herman Cain, in the primary. Americans have said we want change in Washington, a much smaller and fiscally sound government and one whose programs work properly, while providing the service they we re originally meant to do. This man can bring us together and lead us back to prosperity. Herman Cain can and will get America back on its feet. He loves America and will never hurt her. Repeal ObamacareIf we accomplish just one thing in 2012 it should be to r epeal Obamacare. When we allow political ideology to trump the health of the individual, we have made a terrible mistake. The federal government response to Hurricane Katrina compounded a natural disaster. The present recession is an example of how politicians permitted political correctness to bring down the economy of the entire nation. The post office annually loses $5 billion and has no idea of how to correct the situation. H opefully, we can make more than one improvement next y ear, but getting rid of a federal mandate controlling our health would be super.Scare tactics didn't workD espite the scare tactics of environmentalists, shale gas is shaving energy bills for an increasing number of customers. And the savings are huge. R eflecting improving technology and significant increases in supply, in some places, prices have fallen by almost half in three years. As the industry expands, expect to hear even more positive news.Justice system failureM ichael Plumadore, a 39-year-old, is another example of how the Florida system of so-called justice is a colossal mess. Living in a trailer park in Fort Wayne, Ind., Mr. Plumadore has admitted to killing and using a chain saw to cut up the r emains of a 9-year-old girl. This despicable murderer had a criminal record here for assault and trespassing. The Florida legal system allowed him to walk free with disastrous results. It's time for reform. Got something to say?

Happy New Year. It looks like 2012 is going to be a much better year. On the business side of things, with the addition of Ve r non and Chris Smith's leadership and support to our management team, H ometown News has made some great strides in several key areas. We also have some very exciting news we will be announcing soon. On the personal side of things, anything would be better than the year my wife, my family and I have gone through this past year. The year started with the passing of my father on Dec 23, a few days before 2011 began and then, of course, the terrible and tragic accident that took the life of my incredible 16-yearold son, Austin, in July. The 150 days that have followed, have been shearagony. There has not been one day that tears have not been shed by both my wife, Elaine, and myself. I know it has been tougher for her, as she was always proud of her status as a stay-athome mom. Now she stays home, but stays there alone. I, on the other hand, am able to block thesaddening thoughts through out most of the day as I focus on the challenges and successes we have experienced here at the paper. Ev eryday we spend time talking to Austin and praying to God that he is OK and doing the work that God took him to do. We talk, but you always wonder if anyone is listening. Is there really something else after you leave y our physical body? Is there r eally another chapter? You want to believe, but you always wonder if it is real or justreligions way of keeping people on the straight and narrow while we ar e here on earth. Let me tell you of a couple of recent experiences that have taken those questions away from us and have pretty much given us hard-core proof that this life is just the beginning. The first incident happened this past November. I had been having some chest pains. Not all the time but they would come at any time, last for anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes; very uncomfortable and somewhat painful. B eing the tough guy that I am, I put off going to the doctor until it was happening so often that it was becoming a problem to do all the things that I needed to do. I went in, had the first r ound of tests, and the doc said I better come back for another round as something didn't look right. The second round of tests led to a third visit to go in with the heartcatheter to see exactly where the blockage was and to put in a stint. I didn't think of it as any real big deal. It runs in the family. My father had a pacemaker implanted in his late 40s. The night before I went in, I had a talk with Austin and God. I don't want to go into details, but I would imagine it was pretty standarddialogue any of us would have in a situation like this. The next morning, Elaine took me to the hospital for the procedure. The doc was ready to go and even was bragging to the other doctors that he could tell them where the blockage was to save them some time. They put me under and slid the catheter up and into the heart. M uch to the amazement of all the personnel in the r oom, there was no blockage, it was gone. The heart was pumping as pure as a newborn baby. This gave me cause to pause. Did Austin and God fix my heart? I wanted to think so but Then it happened.

H obe Sound Arcade, which opened about three months ago at 11181 S.E. F ederal Highway, sets itself apart with a look that r esembles a modern lounge, instead of highlighting the neon and flashing lights that characterize many of its contemporaries. "I wanted to be different from the rest of them, and I guess we've accomplished that," said manager Brenn P ayne, an interior designer who's also spent about 15 y ears in the arcade business. This was the main goal. The minute people walk in the door, what I hear all the time is how beautiful it is in here and how different we are from other arcades." Fo r get everything you think the name implies, the company's administrators said. Hobe Sound Arcade is different, beginning with a setting that's meant to invite guests to sit and visit for awhile. A seating area near the entrance, for instance, has leather chairs and a stylish lamp. Throughout the arcade hang artwork and ornate mirrors that blend with the dŽcor. "I wanted to give the impression that the machines were not the only things that were important," Ms. Payne said. The idea is part of a broader customer service ideal, designed to anticipate and meet guests' needs. A dministrators wanted a spouse who was done playing the slots to have a comfortable spot to relax while waiting for the other partner, for example. I ts deluxe Keurig coffeemaker is another great touch, allowing customers to make individual cups of gourmet coffee. B ut these are some of the little extras. The main attractions are the 76 machines that include old favorites and popular sensations, including Bingo, Pot of Gold and its exclusive Sweepstakes machines. I ts guests are area residents who stop by for brief games or seasoned players who spend hours trying their luck against the computers. At H obe Sound Arcade, special events and promotions are part of the regular calendar, with bingo on W ednesdays and pizza on Fr idays. The company lists promotions on its website, www.hobesoundarcade.com as well as opportunities for guests to earn prizes in drawings and other giveaways. I ts birthday club is a monthly celebration, held on the last Friday or Saturday, with cake and balloons. C elebrants get $5 additional free play. "W e celebrate all day long, so they can come in at any time on that day for their prize," Ms. Payne said. W ith its catered parties, free refreshments, food and deluxe snacks, "odds are yo u' ll love it" at Hobe Sound Arcade, as the company's tag line states. H obe Sound Arcade is open from 10 a.m.to 10 p.m. on Mondays to Thursdays and from 10 a.m.until the last customer leaves on Fridays to Sunday.For more information,call (772) 5464300.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl St e wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or e-mail earls@earlstewarttoyota.co m. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960 and 95.9,which can be streamed at www.seaviewam960.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m. This column originally appeared March 4,2011.There ought to be a law against advertising any product, especially cars, while concealing information in the fine print, which completely negates the material facts advertised in the bold print, especially price. Electronic media ads are the worst offenders. The way the fine-print disclosure is shown on TV is a joke. It's literally impossible to read the fine print due to the blurred, small size and the very short length of the time it's displayed. R adio fine print is equally ludicrous. It's often read at high speed, like an auctioneer on amphetamines, at a very low volume and often at the beginning of the commercial so listeners don't even know it's part of the advertisement. What do our lawmakers and regulators think when they see these TV ads and listen to the radio ads? The lawmakers either don't care that misleading ads are r outinely deceiving the public or they've been paid off by industry lobbyist to look the other way. F or purposes of this article, I had to choose a print ad because, like you, I can't decipher the fine print in radio or TV ads. I chose this ad at random from lots of car dealer ads in the Palm B each Post and the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel on S aturday, Feb. 26. This particular ad ran in both of these newspapers. It's not the most deceptive ad, not the least, just a typical S outh Florida newspaper car ad with important facts hidden from the reader by putting them in the fine print. Y ou can view the ad for y ourself by clicking on www.AnatomyOfACarAd.co m. You will see the ad as whole and a blow-up of the fine print so you can read it. What follows is an explanation of how the fine print would affect your decision to purchase if you were to r ead and understand what y ou read. Pr ices plus tax, tag, title, dealer installed options. All of the advertised prices are understated by accessories (options) that the dealer has chosen to add to the advertised car. These are typically lowcost items to the dealer that are marked up to you, the customer, by a huge margin. E xamples are pin stripes, nitrogen in tires, glass etch, window tint, door edge guards, "protection packages," paint sealant, fabric protections, road hazard assistance, etc. A typical markup from dealer installed options would cost the dealer under $100 and be priced to you more than $1,000. All rebates applied including owner loyalty, lease loyalty and military r ebates. Customer must qualify for all rebates and incentives. Dealer retains all r ebates and incentives. The dealer keeps all r ebates, even those you might have seen advertised by the manufacturer. You have to sign a form before purchase that assigns your r ebates to the dealer. But the worst part of this is the assumption that you qualify for "owner loyalty," "lease loyalty" and "military" r ebates. Loyalty rebates mean that y ou have to have purchased or leased that make car and trade it in to qualify. The odds are you drive another make. The military rebate is especially outrageous. It often amounts to $1,000 and only applies if you are currently on active duty in the U.S. military. In other words, the prices that you r ead in this ad are understated by thousands in r ebates that you very likely will not qualify for. All vehicles subject to prior sale. Must present ad at time of purchase to r eceive advertised offer. Offer expires date of publication. N otice in the main part of the ad, each advertised car has a number next to it. One example is STK#110272. This number is the stock number of one particular car and that is the only car available at that price. If the dealer tells you that car was sold" he's not obligated to sell an identical car at the same price even if he has several. If he does sell you an identical car, he can now add his dealer fee. If you buy a car today and see it advertised for less tonight that's too bad. If you came in the next day on the ad, that's too bad, too. D ealer not responsible for typographical errors or omissions. Vehicle art for illustration only. Optional equipment or varying model may be shown. This essentially says that y ou cannot hold the dealer to anything you read or see pictured in the advertisement. He can say that the price was a "mistake" and that the truck with the luxury wheels and sunroof was "for illustrative purposes only." Offers not in conjunction. O ther restrictions apply. See dealer for complete details. If the dealer advertised 0 percent financing and no down payment, you can't get both. "Other restrictions" means that just in case the dealer didn't cover everything in the fine print there may be "other restrictions" that he can bring up later.

he'll give you those details. We will beat any local, v alid, printed advertisement from another authorized Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep dealer within the SE Business Center Zone on any new identically equipped in stock vehicle. If we fail to beat the price we will give y ou $1,000. Customer must present competitors ad at the time of purchase and supply accurate VIN number, competitor's ad must be dated same day as the customers purchase excluding tax, tag, title, dealer-installed options. If we beat the competitor's price you must buy the vehicle from Arrigo. Dealer r eserves the right to purchase the vehicle from other dealer. The price guarantee doesn't apply to "dealerinstalled options," which r epresent thousand(s) in profit to the dealer. The dealer reserves the right to purchase the exact car from his competitor. There's zero chance that his competitor will sell him that car, lose the sale and give it to his competition. $3,000 cash or trade equity due at signing. This means that the price or lease payment you came in on requires you to give the dealer $3,000. Q ualified customers with a minimum 750 credit score. M ost people don't have that good a credit score and will be asked to make higher payments and/or put down a larger down payment. The bottom line is that y ou should never buy a car in response to an advertisement. The deck is stacked against you and you can't win the game. The only way to get a good price on a new or used car is to first decide on the exact year, make and model and which options you want and compare prices with at least three dealers.

explained away. Austin sent me a text. That's right. A ustin texted me. Let me back up. Fr iday night, Dec.23 Elaine and I were sitting on the back patio, watching TV and talking. Most evenings, at the end of the day, Elaine gets upset. She misses our son. She can look up to see his bedroom door where he would come out and lean ov er the railing to ask us a question or tell her he loved her. She was upset. We talked about him for a few minutes and I tried to make her feel better. I then set my phone down on the patio table and went inside to get something out of our ro om. Inside the bedroom I continued to talk to Austin. "Son, we love you. We wish you were here with us. A ustin, you have to let your mom know you are OK. C ome to her, do something, please just let her know you are OK." I went back out to the patio and noticed the phone flashing that I had a message. I clicked on the message and saw that there was an attachment. I didn't r ecognize the number so I asked, "Elaine, do you know this number? (772) 5592567." S he said, "That sounds so familiar" she paused, squinting her eyes as she dug deep in her brain for the o wner of that number. Then she looked at me and said, "Steve, that is Austin's number." What? What? Austin's number? Austin's phone has not had service for five months, his phone is in a zip bag under the counter. How could that be Austin's number? There is a ton of strange thingssurroundingthis miracle. The fact that it was sent to my email but never w ent to our email server, only my phone was one of them. I could not open the attachment on my phone so I had to forward it to my email. I went inside to open the attachment on our computer. O pening this attachment has changed our life and our outlook on the never-ending question, is there life after death? I opened the attachment and was shocked to see that it was a picture of Austin's grandpa. His grandfather passed away last Dec. 23, one year to the day. This picture was pulled up attached to a "photo gallery" that resides on our computer. I clicked on the arrow to see the next picture. It was Au stin. Nearly every other picture on this photo gallery was a picture of Austin, back when everything was OK. He let his mother know that he was OK, he let us know he was with grandpa. A ctually, the photo shows y ou what we first saw when the message came to the phone, 9:01p "772559...FW:IMGOO." Was he telling us...I am good? J ust for the record. I went to the ATT store to see how this could have possibly happen. According to them, it couldn't. There is no service to that number. No one else has that number. That number does not exist, at least not in this world.

P lump shrimp, giant lobster claw meat, mussels and clams crown this feast, flavored with chorizo sausage and a tomato broth with vegetables and rice. It 's the latest example of how Manatee Island Bar & Grill has lived up to its reputation of serving great food that's fresh, inspired and always interesting. Located on the Manatee P ocket in Port Salerno, the r estaurant's menu features a slew of fun and original offerings. I ts margarita mussels, for instance, is the waterfront spot's homage to the frozen cocktail and the seafood favorite. Chef Scott Enterline's creation uses Prince Edward I sland mussels sautŽed in tomatoes, garlic, shallots and cilantro in tequila, triple sec liqueur and keylime juice, a combination one reviewer hailed as divine." "A single taste of this dish will whisk you off to a faraway palm tree and sandy beach destination," the proprietors promise, and it does. I ts herb-seared grouper is a sophisticated dish, made with the fresh, dense and flaky fish. The grouper is lightly breaded and sautŽed with tomatoes, shallots, leeks, garlic and herbs in a white wine sauce for an entrŽe that is perfectly finished and balanced. R estaurateurs Michael P olitano and Paul Gonnella r ely on the creativity of their chef, who worked at Mr. Gonnella's boutique hotel on Nantucket Island for about eight years and had access to premium ingredients and specialty foods. "I try to craft dishes and put my own twist on it," said Mr. Enterline, who's worked as a chef since 1988. At M anatee Island Grill, the crab cakes alone would more than make the trip worthwhile. They're light and delicious, with very little filler and an island r emoulade sauce that's perfectly spiced, but not overbearing. Se veral of the dishes are served family style in a large STAR SCOPESJames Tucker W eek of 1-6-2012 Aries-March 21-April 19Count your blessings. This is a New Year.

Photo courtesy of Seacoast National BankThelma Washington of Gertrude Walden Child Care Center, and Amber Garren and Suzanne Granfield of Seacoast National Bank help the children unload items for the center's supply closet.Bank helps local families with supply driveMARTIN COUNTY S eacoast National Bank associates came to the need of children and families of the Gertrude Walden Childcare Center in Stuart delivering much-needed supplies before Christmas. The center's 102 children anxiously lined up for a turn to help unload an overflowing truck of diapers, toilet paper, detergent and other personal care items to r estock the Center's supply closet. "W e are seeing a shift in family needs," said Thelma W ashington, director of the childcare center for 16 years. "F ood stamps don't buy personal items and many of our families need toilet paper, diapers and laundry detergent. The supply closet is a new concept for us and the donations came at just the right time. Our closet was almost empty." The collection stemmed from a tour with Seacoast N ational Bank Treasure C oast President Tom Wilkinson and senior vice president/retail regional manager Eileen Hatt, at the childcare center. When told of the empty supply closet, Mr. W ilkinson saw an opportunity to help. "I know our associates are some of the most generous people in our community and knew they would r espond to the need," he said. S eacoast associate Amber G arren sent out a company email and a call to action. In a mere three weeks, Seacoast associates had collected an overflowing truckload of items to be donated to the center. "I had no idea this would be so great," said Ms. Washington. "P eople like this, who come and help and make this come true, are wonderful people in our community." S eacoast National Bank is the operating arm of Seacoast Banking Corporation of Florida.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope the holidays left you with pleasant memories and new-found promise for 2012. F or us, a successful year in golf may mean just getting out a few more times to play. It may mean a new set of irons or a trip to a course yo u' ve longed to play. Pe r haps it means a careerbest round or one with an old friend or relative. Whatever it is, I hope that y ou find it. F or the more famous people in golf, I have a few predictions for 2012. While I am nowhere near as famous as Nostradamus, I hope I can be just a bit more accurate with my crystal ball. W ith that, here are my top predictions for 2012. In a move to increase his slipping chances of catching J ack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods petitions the powers-that-be at Augusta National to trim their invite list for The M asters to 18 players. S eeing as Tiger's lone win in the last two years came at his own, limited-field event, he hopes the same-size field at Augusta will better his odds of winning at put him that much closer to Jack's r ecord for major wins. Alas, despite protests by Al S harpton and the Rev. Jessie J ackson outside Magnolia Lane, the Green Jackets will politely turn down Tiger's r equest. While Tiger will be in the hunt, it will be Jason D ay who holds off Luke Donald to slip on the coat come week's end. To which T iger will comment sorely, "I wouldn't have even invited him." At the U.S. Open, we will witness the most tightly packed leaderboard in decades. With the Olympic Club playing to a mere 7,060 yards, nearly the entire field will find themselves in the hunt. N ot having to hit long irons and fairway woods into concrete-hard greens will help the short hitters stay in contention. I look for a short-but-accurate player to win this major. We may even see someone from the Champions Tour hoist the cup by nightfall on Fathers Day. On the flip side, I expect to see the youngest champion in history win a major on the ladies side of golf. Lexi Thompson will win a major this year and become the y oungest woman to do so by nearly a year. That is if Yani T seng cools off long enough for anyone other than her to win any tournament. At the Open Championship, Sergio Garcia will finally get that giant gorilla off his back. He will claim his first major in style beating the hottest youngster in golf, Rory McIlroy and the man everyone thought he'd be rival to, Tiger Woods, in a playoff at Royal Lytham & St. Anne's. F or Garcia it will complete his career comeback that began with back-toback wins on the European T our late this past year. For T iger, it will be his second near miss of the year, something that will begin to eat at him as the year progresses. At the year's final major, we will see a shootout between no less than six 20somethings. In the end, Rickie Fowler will triumph. At his press conference after the tournament, he will show up sans hat and with a new haircut. I think we will see the demise of a fine man and golfer this year. Ernie Els' putting woes will continue and he will go from the belly putter, to the long putter, to putting left-handed, to trying a wedge and then a hybrid in an effort to drop a putt. Els slipped from 42nd in putting in 2010 to 180th in 2011. It's difficult to stay competitive and even harder to stay positive when you cannot make a 3-foot putt. The final nail in the coffin for Els, and the beginning of a slide for others, will come when the Royal & Ancient actually bans the long putter. There is currently a rule limiting how short a putter may be. While it's difficult to limit the overall length of a specific club, I expect to see the R&A make the swinging of a club by anchoring it to any spot on the body, other than the hands or the wrists, against the rules. With its usual aplomb, the USGA will wait another two years before implementing the same rule. F inally, we will see a mainstay of the U.S. Ryder C up team not make the squad. Sadly, Phil Mickelson, who has seen more than his fair share of mountains to climb, will slide out of the players qualifying for the team on points. It's unlikely that captain Davis Love III, will pick him with so many hot, y oung players to choose from.

Some of us have already broken them. We may want to exercise more, eat better or lose weight. Pe r haps we want to reconnect with friends and family. Some of us may want to try something new. That's our focus this month. In this issue of Forever Young, you'll meet people who tried something they hadn't done before. In some cases it was exercising or taking up a sport. In other cases, it was a change in career or a new pursuit after retirement. Some of the people had physical limitations. Others had survived cancer and rethought their priorities. The common thread for all the stor ies is that it is never too late to try something new. It doesn't have to be a lifechanging move. Sometimes it's as simple as taking up bridge or ballroom dancing. All of the people interviewed for these pages have taken that first step, the hardest one of all. Most were apprehensive. Many were afraid they'd make fools of themselves. They decided not let that bother them. What they found was that challenging themselves kept them young, gave them confidence and made them feel better about themselves. We hope you will take that message to heart. If there is something you've always wanted to do, perhaps this is the y ear you give it a try.

4MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Swimmer KEEPS COMPETITIVE EDGE STUART Ray Bowles began swimming in high school, but he didn't compete because there was no swim team. At M anhattan College, he was on the swim team for four years and also competed for the New York Athletic Club. Mr. Bowles received a master's degree in speech therapy from Columbia University and coached swimming at the community pool during the summer. He spent his professional career as a teacher and speech therapist in Westchester County, N.Y. He was a member of the Westchester Masters Club, an organization for people 19 and over who wish to continue competitive swimming. T en years ago, Mr. Bowles retired. His sister and son both lived in Florida and he and his wife, Pauline, moved here in 2001. They settled at Martin Downs Country Club in Palm City. The Sports Resort here has a 25-yard pool," he said. That was important to me. I need that to practice in. Other pools were smaller. That was the determining factor for me." Mr. Bowles has competed in the Martin County Senior G ames five times, has gone to the state championships and has competed twice in the National Senior Games. This year, he brought home a medal, coming in third in the 500-yard freestyle. His time was nine minutes and 11 seconds. It was only the second time he had competed at that distance. Mr. Bowles practices almost every day. He will swim anywhere from 50-75 laps, do different exercises and drills or time himself, swimming for speed. "A y ear ago, at the state championships, I went for distance instead of speed and came in third," he said. "There is a difference. You have to pace yourself and the breathing is different." Mr. Bowles' next goal is to lower his speed, which was a personal best.

5MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Document your sources in genealogy You've been researching your family and entering names, dates and other pieces of the puzzle, but have you noted where y ou obtained this information? W ill you remember where you found it, next month, next year, or 10 years from now? The answer is a guaranteed "No." So, starting today, document everything before you get too far down the road and have to backtrack. This will help your r esearch tremendously in the future, when you need to find that elusive bit of information that will help you climb the inevitable brick wall. It also gives other researchers confidence in your work. When I first started researching, I excitedly took down every fact I found. Of course it was correct, it was right there on the official document, in the book at the library, or Grandmother told me. Fo r tunately, I did get copies of most of the official documents, or can r emember where the tombstone is, but I didn't actually document it in my database. There are still many facts in my database that are not documented properly. It is still one of my major downfalls, getting caught up in the story and not wanting to take the time to document. S ending your genealogy out into the world without citing your sources is sending it out with no v alidation. Almost invariably, when I find some exciting new fact about my ancestor, there is no source given. This leaves me totally in the dark. Exactly where did this date, spouse name, etc., come from? Someone must have known, but chances are, the person that put the information on the Internet, or in the book, just copied it from someone else, who also copied it from someone. As far as I know, it could have, and might as well be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with the exact location from where it was obtained. A source, regardless of how informal, is where we obtained the information. It may have come from a probate record, family Bible, census record, or from Grandma Bessy. Everything needed for another researcher to find this source, should be included. This leaves a trail for you, as well as others who want to follow your line of descent. Tr aditionally, sources have been classified as primary and secondary. A primary record is one created close to the event, such a birth or marriage record or by a person r easonably knowledgeable about the event. A secondary record is one that was created sometime later. The secondary source is not viewed as being as accurate as a primary source, since time and distance often dims memories and distorts the facts. So a secondary source should always be backed up with as many other sources as possible, including a primary one when available. All that said, there are no sources that are guaranteed as being corr ect. Death certificates often contain wrong information, with the informant not knowing the deceased birth date or parent's names. Tombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A r elative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name. This makes a strong case for thoroughly researching each person and finding as many sources as you can. GENEALOGYBRENDA K.

6MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Y oga helps keep a body young and limber STUART When Sherry Killila lived in Ohio, she worked as a paralegal for insurance companies. Her first job involved appeals for medical claims. H er second job involved surety and bonds for old oil and gas wells the company had bonded. She worked in the field, often walking through rural areas searching to see if the wells were still there or if they'd been abandoned. When she and her husband moved to Florida in 2003, he had a job here. She did not have one and she decided to take her time and go in a different direction from what she had been doing. Ms. Killila had taken some yoga classes in Ohio. When you work full-time, you can't r eally delve into it," she said. "I took some classes in Palm City and thought maybe I could get certified." Ms. Killila took an online certification course offered by the National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association. It involved studying material sent on D VDs, passing tests and submitting films and pictures to demonstrate that she knew what she was doing. "I t took me four months," she said. "It was a lot of physiology, about the functions of the body and how it fits together with what you're doing." While she was getting her certification, she was going to classes led by another instructor. "I did some of her classes with her and it was fun," she said. "We started a chair yoga class and it evolved into my doing it on my own." T oday, Ms. Killila teaches chair and mat yoga to seniors. At 63, she understands the concerns and limitations of older adults. She doesn't have a studio, so she travels to communities to teach classes to groups of seniors. "Y oga is something you can enjoy and have fun with all your life," she said. "I t' s not just physical. It's also a mindset." F or chair yoga, Ms. Killila says that the only requirement is to be able sit. For the mat classes, participants must be able to go down to the floor and get back up. "I adapt the class to the participants," she said. "I have ladies over 90 years old and quite a few in their 70s and 80s." M any studies have shown benefits to doing yoga and Ms. Killila emphasizes those benefits that are especially important as we age. "Y ou learn how to sit correctly and breathe more efficiently and increase the volume in the lungs," she said. "We work on increasing muscle tone to r emain independent, upright and walking. Flexibility and balance decrease in everyone, and no one wants to start falling." There are other, less tangible benefits to yoga, as well. "I f you are in class with people you like, doing something you enjoy, you feel better," she said. "Exercise releases hormones like serotonin, the anti-depressant hormone. I do two gentle meditation and relaxation exercises at the beginning and end of the class. The first exercise is to bring your attention into the room and not think about anything else. It helps to maintain focus and concentration and if you meditate every day they can be increased." F or many people, the hardest part of y oga is coming through the door the first time. "Y oga is not a competitive sport," Ms. K illila said. "It's all about what you can do. It makes you go inward. "Y ou're doing your poses, clearing y our mind and focusing on the position of your hands and your feet. You become more aware of how you walk and your posture. If you become aware, y ou can help yourself." Ms. Killila's classes are not limited to women. A few brave men have attended and some have even noted an improvement in their golf swings. It's something to think about. S enior groups wishing to start chair or mat yoga classes in their communities should call Sherry Killila at (772) 3412320.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG FBI FAMILY NOW SINGING AND DANCING STUART In his 34 years with the FBI, Chris Mazzella fought organized crime, public corruption and drug smuggling. He helped put a lot of bad guys behind bars. H is biggest catch, though, was one of his first, a young clerical worker in the New York office named Jeanette Ma r inello. They were married in 1967, when Chris competed agents' training. "M y Bureau career ended," Jeanette said. "For 15 years we moved around the country while raising three children." Chris' career took them to New Orleans, Chicago, Philadelphia, W ashington, D.C., and Miami. An attorney as well as an agent, he took an advisory position in Miami in 1981 to settle down with his growing family in a warm climate. T oday, Chris Mazzella serves as inspector general for Miami-Dade C ounty. He has begun another career, inspired, in part, by Jeanette, who is a singer and dancer. Chris sings in a duet called We2 with Judy Desantis and both Mazzellas are directors of Shiloh Theatrical Pr oductions. The community theater is taking a break this year to reorganize financially. Jeanette, as president, and Chris, as treasurer, are seeking ways to bring the company back in 2013. J eanette, a long-time dancer, had been doing Jazzercise for years. When they moved to Palm City in 2002, she became an instructor. In 2006, she opened her own franchise. She also began performing in community theater with the Barn Theatre and Shiloh. "I 'v e been in over 27 shows," she said. "I love to sing, love to dance, love to act. I love working with other people. When it's age-approriate, I'm there." In 2009, after fighting breast cancer, J eanette sold her franchise. She's r eturned to an earlier love, tap dancing, and performs with the Treasure C oast Tappers. Chris Mazzella's path to performing was a bit different. "I played trumpet for my high school band," he said. "I had appreciation for music from my brother, who was a professional musician. After 33 y ears at the FBI, still working fulltime, I started dabbling in the theater. "F our years ago, I got into singing professionally.

On Jan. 31, Florida Republican voters go to the polls to say who'll get Florida's delegates to the GOP national convention in Tampa this August. While Florida Democrats won't vote in a presidential primary most observers say it's virtually certain that the Democratic national convention will nominate President Obama F lorida's Jan. 31 primary election could play a major role in the outcome of the r ace for the Republican nomination. To help older Floridians sort out where candidates stand on issues important to voters 50+, AARP Florida is helping voters to track the candidates' positions especially on critical pocketbook issues such as protecting and strengthening Social Security and M edicare. AARP is nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates for any election or contribute money to any politicalaction committee or campaign. AARP does work to educate its 37 million members, including 2.7 million members in Florida, on key issues. In O ctober, an AARP Florida poll showed a significant and troubling gap between where some Republican candidates stood on cuts to Social S ecurity and Medicare and where F lorida Republican voters stood. The poll showed that by huge margins at least two to one GOP voters stoutly opposed cuts to future recipients' Social S ecurity benefits, or cuts to Medicare benefits, as a way to reduce the federal deficit. F or example, Florida Republicans who identified themselves as Tea Party supporters, and who also said they had attended Tea Party events, opposed cuts to Social Security for future beneficiaries as a way to reduce the deficit by a margin of 56.1 to 37.9 percent. The same voters opposed cuts to Medicare as a way to reduce the deficit by 62.1 to 31.8 percent, almost exactly two to one. In other groups of Florida Republican voters, the margins were far more lopsided. Hispanic Republicans opposed Social Security cuts as a deficit-reduction measure by 84.5 percent to 13.5 percent, a crushing sixto-one margin. While Florida Republicans overall opposed cuts to Medicare as a means of reducing the deficit by 70.4 percent to 22.2 percent, Hispanic R epublicans opposed Medicare cuts 77 percent to 16.5 percent, more than a four-to-one margin. Y et much of the political buzz about the GOP primary has centered on ideas for cutting Social Security benefits for future retirees, or reductions to M edicare reimbursements, as a way of lowering the federal government's operating deficit. AARP believes this poll shows a startling disconnect between what W ashington and the candidates are thinking about Social Security and M edicare, and what Florida GOP voters want them to do. The poll showed that those Florida R epublicans likely to vote in the Jan. 31 primary are overwhelmingly 50+, for whom Social Security and Medicare are very important issues. AARP Florida believes it can play an important role by helping voters learn where candidates stand on these critical issues. To make sure voters are getting accurate information, we have posted unedited video voters' guides in which several candidates explain their views on Social Security and Medicare in their o wn words. The voters' guide can be found at www.aarp.org/youearnedit If yo u' re r egistered as a Democrat or independent, stay tuned for AARP's voter-education efforts later in the year. O ur association will focus on helping voters get access to important information on state and Congressional candidates and issues in preparation for primary elections in August and general elections in November.

9MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG Though it's common to ring in the New Year by making resolutions for the year, it's far less popular to set goals for the next 12 months. Resolutions and goals might be similar, but they're not exactly the same. When setting goals, men and women are attempting to develop a plan for the year ahead with the intent of being in a better place in 365 days. Successful resolutions are typically far less encompassing. While resolutions are goaloriented, men and women often make just one resolution that does not require a plan so much as some dedication. For instance, a goal of being more financially secure will require a plan that must be implemented for it to be a success. A resolution to quit smoking might involve some advice from health professionals, but in general it's up to the individual to simply stop smoking. When setting goals for the next 12 months, consider the following tips. Brainstorm some ideas. Goals should pertain to all aspects of life, from career goals to personal goals to anything you want to accomplish around the house. B efore setting any goals, brainstorm as many ideas as possible for each area of your life. Write these ideas down, no matter how big or small they might be even though you might not decide to pursue each and every goal you come up with. The purpose of this is just to get some ideas flowing and to use those ideas as a foundation. If two or more ideas are similar, such as losing weight and eating healthier, then you can combine those later on and make them one goal to simply be healthier a year from now. Rank goals by their importance to you. Goals will have varying degrees of importance, and this can help you to rank them by which ones you feel are most important. This doesn't mean you can't accomplish each goal on y our list. But prioritizing goals can make it easier to accomplish them. A good approach to take is to accomplish a high-priority goal, then reward yourself by tackling a more lighthearted goal that's less of a priority. For instance, if one of your biggest priorities is to install new siding on the house and you accomplish this goal, then reward yourself by next working on one of your more funoriented goals, such as visiting a water park or attending a ballgame. Such a balance and reward system can provide motivation and make for a fun and productive year to boot. Establish a time frame. When setting goals with no time frame in mind, it's easy to procrastinate and downplay the significance of the goals. When setting goals, establish a time frame to increase y our chances of being successful. F or instance, if you have a goal to save X amount of money over the next 12 months, give yourself monthly savings markers to meet. This can help keep you on schedule and ensure you will achieve y our goal come the end of the Setting goals for the New Yearmetrocreativeconncection.comFor Hometown News See GOALS, 10 686781An exciting new publication From celebrating the active lifestyles of Floridas boomers !5 separate local editions,one for each county served by 25,000 copies of each edition will be home delivered and available for single-copy pick-upTO ADVERTISE CALL TODAY

You might realize some goals have become bigger priorities while others are no longer as important, and that's perfectly alright. But once you have passed the planning stage and started to pursue a goal, track your progress and stay the course if it's going well. If not, reconsider your plan and decide if it's best to lay out another course of action.

12MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG A champagne and cinnamon raisin toast New Year! AN ew Year! A new calendar! All the doctor's appointments have been crossed off birthdays celebrated holidays enjoyed Time to do it all over again! There was a time in my life that I thought N ew Year's Eve was the mother of all adult parties. Celebrating with friends, wearing spandex and heels and feeling like I had a terrible flu the next day were the norm. U ntil motherhood descended. When my fledglings were still in the nest and snuggled in by 9 p.m. I was the Waker. I woke them all to come sit with me and watch the ball drop, and was usually r ewarded with daughter No. 1 moaning, That's nice Mom can we go back to bed now?" And mumbled grumblings from daughters No. 2 through four concerning the sanity of waking someone up in the middle of the night to watch TV when the waker informs them daily that they watch too much TV. As they will years and life events fly past in a blur of school plays, report cards, (theirs) job transfers and the gaining of a few pounds (Mine). Now I'm the Wakee. "Mom! Y ou said you would come and celebrate with us! The ball is going to drop in five minutes and we are making raisin toast, do you want y ours with cream cheese?" When I asked this enthusiastic 12-year-old why we were celebrating with raisin toast, the answer made perfect sense. "Partiers sip champagne to celebrate, champagne is made from grapes, and grapes turn into raisins!" This champagne cousin makes a wonderful toast, literally. Especially if enjoyed snuggled on the couch with loved ones and hot tea served in the good china. Mo re life changing events for my offspring graduations, coming of age, starting college, two of them living on their own more poundage added to my hips and I have become both the Waker and the Wakee. This provided me with the opportunity to to question the mental stability of the Wakers. I answered the giggly midnight call with, What the heck are you doing out on the worst night of the year?! You're not drinking, are you? Do you really think calling the one person who worries about you with each breath is the most mentally balanced thing to do? Yes, I love you, and I thank you from the bottom my heart for thinking about your mother and raisin bread when you could be kissing someone. Can I go back to bed now?" The tears that flowed when the doorbell r ang and my offspring walked in toting loaves of raisin bread and cream cheese while I was still holding the phone dried quickly as we woke their siblings to join us. Only now it was child No. 5 who was declaring the loss of mental cognizance by the three of us. To this day he still allows he had to eat six pieces of toast because he feared for his health should he refuse. The r est of us allow we feared for his health should he eat the seventh. A word to the wise: Chasing-a-caffeine-and-raisin-filled 6-year-old around the couch to rip a smashed piece of toast from his hand is best not done in a nylon gown and bunny slippers, while laughing hysterically. The New Year's Eve that rolled around after several more graduations, a couple of new additions to our little clan, and more than a couple of additional pounds was for me one of the more memorable ones. Due to "certain changes" involving Power Surges, sleepless nights and Empty Nest Syndrome I w ent full circle and am once again the Waker and once again the subject of my mental stability came up in the conversation. B eginning with daughter No. 1 and working my way down I struck gold on my third telephone try. My "H appy New Year!!" was met with, "M om! I totally understand you are having problems sleeping and your thermostat is on the fritz, but menopause is not supposed to make me miserable for 10 more years! And then it's supposed to be mine!" I not so gently reminded her that when she was under the influence of morphine See YEAR Page 14 ROSE'S ROOMROSE PADRICK Coffmans Tobacco Shop Coffmans Tobacco ShopSurgeon General Warning:Cigars are not a safe alternative to cigarettes.Since 1978682703 Finest Tobacco Shop on the Treasure CoastV isit our shop at4320 SEFed Hwy #1 € Stuart,FL 34997772.287.5060www.coffmanstobacco.com Purchase your 50% Off Gift Certificates online at www.HometownNewsOL.com W alk-In Humidor and Wide Range of Accessories We have everything you need to ROLL YOUR OWN CIGARETTES Happy Holidays Shop Early for Your Christmas Gift 686285€ Pr e Construction pricing for meditation/cremation garden € N ew Construction pricing in the mausoleum € V eteran Discounts with Free Ma r kersALL SAINTS CEMETERY2303 NESeaview Drive, Jensen Beach, FL (772) 334-7833N ew Special P ricing!

13MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG A man of many interests is never bored I am a man of many interests and hobbies. S ince I was a kid I have been a serious fisherman and I have pursued that hobby all across the U nited States. I have fly fished for brook trout in the r ushing streams of the high R ocky Mountains, trolled for salmon and walleye in the Great Lakes, trapped crawfish in the swamps of Louisiana, and caught horned pout in Maine. I have landed bonito in Southern California and scooped up grunion from the beach. I have caught cutthroat trout in Idaho and large mouth bass from the Santee Cooper in S outh Carolina. With a fly rod I caught small mouth, northern and white bass in the Wolf River w est of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Of course, I have caught most of the fish that swim in Florida waters both fresh and salt. I have given fishing my all. F or most of my life I have also been a car guy and have restored many classic autos. I did a 1959 Chevy pick-up, a very rare 1960 F acel Vega, one of only 200 handmade in Paris, France. I had a 1970 Mercedes, a 1977 Lincoln V ersailles, a '47 Chrysler sedan, a 1966 Plymouth Valiant, and a Br icklin gull wing sports car. I did a fabulous 1949 Chrysler Woody Co nvertible and many more. I loved each and every one of them. I am a lifelong sports fan and chased most of the balls when I was a young man. It was my honor to see Roberto Clemente play in Pittsburgh's venerable F orbes Field and I saw Sandy K oufax pitch in Chavez Ravine. I watched Stan Musial play a game against Willie Mays in the original B ush Stadium in St. Louis. As a y oung man I saw a game between the old Washington Senators and the Philadelphia Athletics in D.C. I saw Harmon Killebrew hit one out in Minneapolis, and Ernie B anks do the same in Wrigley F ield. Always a football fan, I once LAND LINESD AN SMITH 688477 See LANDLINES Page 18

S ipping tea and chewing toast is almost as good via the modern technology of cell phones as it is in person. I can't think of another person for whom the bumper sticker "Please be patient God's not done with me yet" is more appropriate than me, I have been perpetually unfinished for many decades. Evolving and revolving around those that I love and whatever the world hands me is a full-time job for me and I'm thoroughly enjoying every moment. Sometimes it is to the consternation of those who take life more seriously than I do. This year I'm resolving to not re solve. I am replacing resolves with wishes. I wish my bathroom scale would take a backward slide. I wish my tongue would freeze in place at certain times. I wish I could remember to buy books on disks so I could "read" them on the way to work B ut most of all I wish you raisin toast, hot tea and hearts full of enough love to enjoy them.Y earFrom page 12 Show: 10 a.m. Jan. 14-15 in downtown Jensen Beach.

D eadline for the February publication is Jan.15.CalendarF rom page 14 J ob opportunities abound for seniors At one point in the 2008 Oscarnominated film "Frost/Nixon," former President Richard Nixon, played by Frank Langella, says, "R etired people are the most bored people in the world." While some retirees might scoff at that remark, others no doubt agree there's an element of truth to it. Pe r haps boredom is one reason many seniors continue to work past retirement age. According to the Congressional Research Se r vice, 47 percent of male seniors and 34 percent of female seniors were employed in 2007. That those figures were from 2007 is significant, as it indicates this was before the economic downturn of 2008-09, a consequence of which was more seniors returning to the workforce. F or many seniors, though, working isn't simply a means to earn money. In fact, seniors who continued working past the age of 70 earned an average of just $20,000 in 2007. Seniors also tend to work to have something to do. For seniors looking to do just that, there are a host of employment or even volunteer opportunities that can help seniors stay busy and possibly put a little extra money in their pockets. Local park service. Many local park services hire seniors to help keep the parks clean. These aremetrocreativeconncection.comFor Hometown News See OPPORTUNITIES, 17 680943

When I finally step down as inspector general, I hope to devote a lot more time to that business," Chris said. "There's nothing like singing, performing and dancing. H is wife has always known this. Right now, they are also trying to save Shiloh Theatrical Productions. The community theater group, wellknown for staging big musicals, has lost money for several years. This y ear, they had to cancel the season. "W e' re hoping to re-emerge through fundraising and donations to come back next year," Chris said. "W e' re going to take a look at the business model. We may not be able to do Br oadway musicals all the time. We want to have one. We're just going to have t find a less expensive way." W ith their schedules, it's difficult to imagine that the pair finds time to be together. They often rehearse together and Chris credits Jeanette with making it work. "I 'm the first to admit that because of my job and commitments, Jeanette does an amazing job keeping me organized. My business partner handles the business end of the vocals. J eanette takes a tremendous load off me and Judi does as well. I'm very spoiled."

Golf course. Golf courses are other seasonal businesses, at least in much of the country, that also boast lots of part-time opportunities for seniors. F or example, golf courses need rangers, who ensure all golfers play by the rules and r espect the course, and even maintenance staff, who do everything from cut the grass to maintaining gardens. These can also pull double duty, providing seniors with daily exercise to help them stay healthy. Volunteer. Many programs that help indigent citizens get by every day welcome seniors as volunteers. M eal delivery services and other programs that cater to the sick are often in need of a helping hand. School systems. Local school districts also have volunteer opportunities that can be ideal for seniors. Positions such as crossing guard or even helping out with the local athletic teams don't require much of a commitment and can be r ewarding and fun for seniors. Consultant work. Seniors who miss the thrill of business don't have to give it up completely simply because they're retired. Many seniors earn a handsome amount of money by working as consultants, using their vast experience to help the next generation. What's more, consultants often work on their own schedule, an ideal situation for seniors with a passion for business but an equal passion for the positives of retirement. Library. Libraries might not be as popular as they once were, but many are still going strong, and some even use volunteers and parttime employees to keep their operations running smoothly. Many libraries prefer hiring seniors thanks to their reliability and good attitude.OpportunitiesF rom page 15 010179 687079

18MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2012FOREVER YOUNG watched a game between the Houston Oilers and B oston Patriots before each changed their names. In Chicago's Soldier Field I watched the great Walter Payton score many times and in Tampa I saw the Bucs in their championship season. Once I even saw the legendary El Co r dobes fight a bull in Barcelona Spain. I am a pretty fair amateur historian and some consider me to be an authority on beach racing. From time to time I am called on to speak publicly about some of my hobbies. Somehow, with all of that going on, I found time to run a construction business for 26 years and help Lana, my wife of nearly 38 years, raise two great children. WO W! I have really been busy. As most of you have guessed, these days my most r ewarding hobby is what I am doing right now writing. Since I was in fifth grade I have been told that I have the ability to spin a pretty good tale on paper. I used that talent to cruise through the English classes while in school, so if some of you detect flaws in my composition it is a result of my youthful laziness. In my life I have emptied hundreds of ballpoints and covered reams of paper with words that no one will ever read. That's OK, for I do it mostly for myself. S ince I have been writing for this newspaper I have met many of you who have been kind enough to tell me that you enjoy what I do. That, to me, is priceless. H opefully, some of you have discovered through my simple style just how easy it is to write and will consider trying it for yourself. Writing is good for your psyche. It is a release that can cleanse the mind and perhaps even the soul. Everyone has a story to tell. Maybe it is your o wn life story or maybe the accomplishments of your grandchildren. Your subject need not be interesting to the masses. Do it for yourself. I am certain many of you have thought about it. You may have even said to yourself, "I bet I could do what that Dan guy does." You know what? You are right. T ake a close look at my columns. Nothing complicated, right? I try to write as though I am talking with a friend. I work hard to keep out pretentious words that I would not use in everyday conversation. It seems to work. You need not have a huge vocabulary and if you do you certainly shouldn't hit people over the head with it. Words that are inserted to show off your language skills tend to remind your reader that someone is writing at them; not talking to them. As I said before, I write for myself. I am very fortunate to have my musings published, but if that ended tomorrow I would continue to write. I just like doing it. I encourage you to find something you enjoy doing and do the hell out of it. Who knows you may even find someone who will allow y ou to do it professionally. Thank you, H ometown News.LandlinesFrom page 13 The more sources you find, the closer you can come to deciding which is the correct data. W ith the tremendous amount of information being put on the we b, y ou must always remember that it is all suspect until you have personally verified that it is corr ect. Never download someone else's information into your work until you document it and are satisfied that the preponderance of evidence shows that this data belongs to your family.
