Fair returns for 53rd year MARTIN COUNTY F or more than half a century, the Martin County Fair has been an anticipated source of family entertainment for the r egion. And this year will be no different as the fair returns for its 53rd year, running from Feb. 10-18, plus two additional days when the carnival rides remain open after the fair shuts down, organizers said. The event will be a mix of traditional favorites and new sources of entertainment that have emerged as crowd pleasers. Among them is faith night, a celebration of spiritual love and devotion that has helped distinguish the local fair.

The deputies, Lisa Webb and George Yacobellis, saved the woman, who was distraught over financial woes and marriage problems. That was one of the reasons why deputies Webb and Yacobellis, who work as partners, though they have separate vehicles, were named sworn Employees of the Year for the Martin C ounty Sheriffs Office. Ma r tin County Sheriff Robert L. Crow der recognized those two deputies and other employees, who r eceived awards last week. At the ceremony, they also received praise for helping other agencies with barricaded suspects, life-threatening medical emergencies and helping y outh in the community. D eputy Yacobellis said he just tries to do a good job. Y ou dont do the job to get awards, he said, but added: Its kind of neat to be recognized.

Fr om 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 14, several Christian performers will take to the stage to entertain fair goers. Christian rock bands, C ode of Ethics and The Great Transparency, provide energetic and relevant messages of Gods love, the groups said. Also included in the lineup is Stuart rapper Jeff W illiams, whose stage name is JDUB, a performer who mixes a spiritual message with commercial beats. I dont know of any other fair that actually has a faith night, so its actually quite popular, said Deann C antrell, secretary of the nonprofit Martin County F air. The event has added to the popularity of the fair, which draws 60,000 to 65,000 people to Martin C ounty. A ttendees come from as far away as North Florida, and many drive from neighboring Palm Beach County to sample the food and entertainment, fair staff said. F or decades the fair has also been the platform to celebrate Martin Countys agricultural heritage. I ts local Future Farmers of America and 4H showings give children and attendees the opportunity to interact with livestock. The programs contest allows children to spend about a year r aising livestock, such as poultry, rabbits, swine, goats and various types of cows, and present them for judging at the fair. W e do a lot to encourage agriculture and agricultural education, and there are still a lot of kids who still enjoy it. There are a lot of younger kids involved, not just with the animals but also with growing vegetables as well, Ms. Cantrell said. The Martin County Fair is a mix of fun and learning. A major draw are the daily performances of the Anastasini Circus, a clown act featuring up to seven dogs and big-top maneuvers. The list of entertainment is long. On the roster are a comedy hypnotist, puppeteers, concert bands, musicians in several genres, and local Latin bands including Florida Latin Beat and Tairon Aguilera, among other acts. The event will also feature the Miss Martin County Fair pageant on Feb. 10, beginning at 7 p.m. The annual scholarship pageant is open to freshmen to juniors at Martin County high schools. This year it attracted 29 contestants who will vye for the title.

The event will take place in Building C of the Martin C ounty Fairgrounds, located at 2616 S.E. Dixie Highway, Stuart. It runs from Fe b. 10th to 18th.

O ther funding options up for consideration include a half-cent sales tax that would generate $10 million or the creation of a special taxing district both of which would require legislation at the state level. M embers wasted little time, though, in saying the committee would not consider property tax hikes to pay for inlet maintenance, when it meets later this month. This committee will ultimately provide the input which will be brought to the Ma r tin County Board of C ounty Commissioners to move maintenance forward into the future, said Martin C ounty Commissioner P atrick Hayes, the groups chairman. The idea is also to examine best practices in areas with similar waterways. When the group next meets, county staffers would have provided committee members with a brief history of the St. Lucie Inlet, information on management methods and maintenance costs for comparable inlets and cost parameters for near term and future management, said Gabriella Ferra ro communications and outreach coordinator for the Ma r tin County Board of C ounty Commissioners. Wo rk began this month to dredge the St. Lucie Inlet, after county commissioners awarded $6.4 million to a Vi r ginia contractor. No r folk Dredging Company beat out three competitors, presenting the lowest bid, county staff said. It is set to begin dredging the inlet in early March and finish the project by April 30 the start of turtle nesting season. No r folk Dredging Company immediately began moving equipment including more than 25,000 feet of pipeline, said Gabriella B. F erraro, communications and outreach coordinator for the Martin County commissioners. The company must move 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet. M embers of the St. Lucie I nlet Advisory Committee include representatives from local, state and federal public agencies and the private sector. community I live in, Deputy Y acobellis said. D eputy Webb, who also said she was surprised about winning the award, has been with the sheriffs office since 2004. B efore that, she worked as a manager for a waste management business. She said she wanted a job that was more exciting and decided to enter law enforcement. S he enjoys working in a profession where every shift isnt the same, she said. As for the incident that helped her and Deputy Yacobellis win the sworn Employee of the Year awards, she r ecalled as she arrived at the causeway bridge, she saw D eputy Yacobellis talking to a woman who had one leg over the rail. D eputy Yacobellis said he tried to convince the woman to change her mind. I tried to reason with her, but it seemed like she had her mind made up, he said. At one point, the woman turned her head briefly, D eputy Webb said. That was when the two deputies made a split second decision, to grab her, Deputy Y acobellis said. They pulled her to safety, he added. O ther employees who r eceived awards were: Jan Glen Muse, a deputy in the department of law enforcement, was named outstanding deputy for that department. A 23-year-year veteran of the sheriffs office, he was recognized for being a mentor to other deputies and helping solve a case that involved the theft of $50,000 in marine equipment. Deputy Susan McAllister was named outstanding deputy for the department of administration for her work ethic, completing her duties and being first to volunteer for any task. Deputy Renee Bilodeau was recognized as outstanding deputy for the department of corrections for strong leadership abilities and leading by example. Patrick McFall, a member of the sheriffs posse, was recognized as outstanding volunteer, for among other things, using his own fuel and tools for eight hours a day for a week to help in the construction of a fence at the sheriffs officer range site. Barbara Johnson was also named an outstanding volunteer for her work at the jail. S he helps in organizing and filing paperwork. Deputy Michael Cashwell r eceived a lifesaving award for performing CPR on an elderly man.A wardsF rom page A1 Photo courtesy of Martin County Sheriffs OfficeGeorge Yacobellis, left, a Martin County deputy, is recognized by Martin County Sheriff Robert L.

trict, which includes Martin, St. Lucie and parts of P alm Beach counties. The state Senate and H ouse redraw district maps every 10 years, then submit them to the Florida S upreme Court and U.S. J ustice Department for approval. As drawn, Martin and St. L ucie counties would become District 18 and include northern Palm B each County. W ith my current district, Floridas 16th, essentially cut in half during the r edistricting process, I had a difficult decision to make. B arring significant changes by the courts through legal challenges, I will run for r eelection in the new Congressional District 17, he said. M inutes after Rep. Roo ney announced his intent to leave the district, fellow R epublican C ongressman Allen W est, R-Plantation, said hed seek r eelection representing the area. I have always believed the state of Florida would be best served by having both Congressman Tom R ooney and myself in the H ouse of Representatives, working to solve our nations most pressing problems, Rep. West said in a statement. I have never wavered from my vision to work to create jobs, restrain federal government spending, r educe Americas everincreasing national debt and provide for a strong national defense to ensure a safer and more prosperous future for our children and grandchildren. Re p. R ooney said serving his current district was an honor and a privilege, but he was excited about working with a rural constituency. The people of this district have always been good to me, and I look forward to r epresenting this region for another two years. I will continue to make sure their calls for a smaller and more r esponsible government, a strong national defense, a prosperous economy and much-needed private sector jobs are heard in Washington, he said. C ongressional District 17 will be the largest agricultural district in Florida and one of the largest in the country, and the farmers here are among the nations leaders in beef and dairy production. As a member of the House Agriculture C ommittee, and chairman of the subcommittee on livestock, dairy and poultry, I will continue to be a strong voice for the people of this district. A vibrant agricultural industry is not only the backbone of this district, but a key driver of both our state and national economies, and I believe that I can best serve the people of Florida as a leader on the Agriculture C ommittee and a Representative of Floridas new 17th District. He added, From the bottom of our hearts, (my wife) Tara and I thank the people of Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties for your support and kindness over the last four ye ars. Representing you has truly been an honor and a privilege. Early speculation is that Re p. W est, a first-term Congressman and Tea Party candidate will run unopposed on the Treasure C oast.

Nowadays, the buses stop every couple of blocks, while parents sit in the cars waiting with the kids. Isnt it a waste of taxpayers money? With all these new sidewalks, cant the kids walk to the bus stops? No wonder Americans are so lazy. K eep your germs at homeLast night I went to a local club where the hostess greets everyone. Our hostess was extremely ill, had been to the doctors that day, and was at work with a fever. What makes her think that she can make other people sick? If youre contagious, stay home. Biking advice I've been driving for 40 years and riding a bike for 50. I have safely operated taxis, dump trucks, garbage trucks, moving vans and even some heavy equipment on the r oads of this country (all over the place, in all kinds of conditions, from coast to coast, mountains and deserts). If I, for any reason, had ever felt the least bit confused, I would have pulled over until my head totally cleared. Y ou, obviously, are exactly the person my rant was directed toward. Yes, you are confused and conveniently omitted the fact that the statutes on bikes have several sections and should be read in their entirety to be fully understood. Anyway, law aside, if you are confused by a bike, dog, kid on a tricycle, skateboarder, wheelchair or pretty much anything at all, then maybe you should do us all a favor and park it, baby. The rest of us should be allowed to feel safe and the thought of confused people driving doesn't do it for me. I'm just guessing, but I don't think it does it for anyone. Stop beggingI saw a bunch of children standing at Wal-Mart out there selling cookies. I think its a disgrace. It seems every week people are begging for money. Theres no need to have children out there.A welfare fixI would like to know, as some others here in the Sunshine State of Florida, what is going on with the offices here? Why are so many illegal immigrants able to get food stamps and have Social Security cards and get free stuff from this state? Why are we taking care of people who sneak into the U.S. and we can't even take care of the people who were born here and work their whole lives here? Then we have people who are on welfare who don't need to be on it at all. Are the people who work these jobs really checking the paperwork or just once in a while? If the immigrants want to stay, let them go through the right channels. The Social Security office should have a special card for immigrants to use, with pictures on them that they can't take off or change with someone. The same thing goes for the food stamp office. The office heads should get off their bottoms and do something about it. The offices should link together by computers, too. Why does the Social Security office issue new cards and numbers when someone loses theirs? They should look up the person on the file database before issuing a new card, then issue a new one with the same number. There are some people with two or more Social Security cards. Then they head to food stamp office to get help with these new cards. There are so many Americans who need help in this area and can't get it because of this problem. The system we have is broken down, so, let's fix it now.Agreeing with ranterI completely agree with the mother who wrote Sick of deadbeat dad. We do have an ineffective legal system that needs to be fixed. We do already have laws in place, but they are not being enforced. Its the loafers we need to kick out. This includes state attorneys, judges, magistrates, hearing officers, sheriff, detectives, department of revenue attorneys and child support enforcement workers. F lorida Statute 827.06 makes it a felony in criminal court (moved from family law court) if the deadbeat parent had four or more contempts and owes $5,000 or more for over one year. In addition, if the parent willfully failed to make sufficient good faith effort to pay child support it is also in criminal violation of this statute. So why arent these laws being enforced? I would assume because it would open the floodgates and create more work for these paid state attorneys, judges and others, sheriff, detectives, etc. who just want to put in their 9-5 hours and go home. They would rather prosecute a $5 T-shirt stolen from Walmart than prosecute a deadbeat dad owing more than $90,000 such as in my case. P eople in these positions of power are making their own r ules as to what is enough evidence or not, depending on if they feel like prosecuting, or taking on more work. They are abusing their authority and taking away our rights, our children's rights. Yes, it is election year and we need to get r id of a lot of people that are not doing their job. Lets fix our system now! I encourage all mothers (and dads) who have a deadbeat parent and fit the criteria of Florida Statute 827.06 to take y our first step and get all your papers and file a complaint with the sheriffs office. They cant deny all of us! Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or email news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Sitting quiet for story timeMitch Kloorfain /chief photographerScott Berry, executive director of the Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties read (and almost sang) to the children of the Gertrude Walden Center Tuesday, Jan. 31 at Barnes & Noble book store in Jensen Beach. Sometimes when computers malfunction, the timing can be coincidental causing you to chase your tail around trying to fix it. M ost of the time when y our computer starts acting squirrelly its good practice to consider the last thing that happened r ight before the problem popped up and then try to undo whatever it is that was changed. Then again, sometimes undoing the last thing that happened can be a red herring causing you to spin y our wheels for hours. Take this recent email I received from George for instance: H i Sean, read your articles every week and look forward to them. Its the first article I look for in H ometown News. S ean, I was having a problem with my M icrosoft mouse, so my son gave me an optical mouse to install. I just disconnected the old one and plugged in the optical mouse and turned the computer on. It began loading files for it and now every time I turn on the computer I have to hit F1 to continue loading windows. Then Im told that Windows had updated my computer clock and asks me to check it. It is always wrong and I have to correct the month, year and time. Do you have any ideas what is causing this because it never has done this before. Im sure it had to do with adding the new mouse. I recall reading one of your articles where you said most computer problems were due to software added to the computer. Any corrections I can make? Thank you in advance and please dont stop writing your articles because you certainly have made a big difference to so many of us. On the surface it would appear George is on the r ight track because he knows that when he added the new hardware (the mouse) and often when new hardware is installed problems can occur. But after reading his email, and considering what was going on, I realized that George was about to start chasing rabbits. This is how I replied to George: H i, Thanks for reading. Whats happening on your system likely has nothing to do with the new mouse. J ust coincidence that it started happening at the same time you added a new piece of hardware. Y our machine is probably older than three years, yes? On your motherboard is a small battery like that found in a watch. When that battery runs down you will have to hit F1 every time you boot and reset the clock. W ith the battery dead it looses track of time when it powers down and all BIOS settings have to be r eset on boot up. U n-plug the system, open the can and look for a watch like battery (probably about the size of a quarter) and replace it. That ought to correct the issue. Hope that helps and thanks again for reading. The next day I opened my email and found the following email from Geor ge. H ello Sean, thank you so much for the info on the dead battery. I never thought of that and yes, my machine is over seven y ears old and still running an old version of Windows. I have never opened the can, but the way you explained it I think I can do that. I will let you know how I make out. Again thank you so much for y our help. And the day after that: H ello Sean, just a follow up on your advice regarding replacing the computers battery. It worked like a charm. I looked in the computer manual to find the info on the battery (CR2032), purchased a r eplacement from Radio S hack, opened the can and even I accomplished this task. Will wonders never end? Again, thank you so much for your help andDont chase tail when looking for PC fixes COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comMARTINV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

The attractive and spacious Seabranch ShipCenter, located at 5667 S.E. Crooked Oak Ave., Hobe S ound, encourages customers to bring their own packing material. In fact, its U-Pack-It center was built for just that. The large, open space near the front of the store encourages clients to save money with their own do-ity ourself packaging. I f they need more mater ial, our shelves are fully stocked, so they can take it off the shelves and use it. We only charge for what they use, said Anthony S ementelli, general manager of Seabranch ShipCenter. M ost packing and shipping centers discourage customers from bringing in their own packaging materials. Thats one of the things that sets the new shipping company apart. Another is its affiliation with FedEx, the international corporation. As a FedEx-authorized ship center, Seabranch offers one-, twoand threeday air shipping, as well as F edExs threeto five-day ground service. B ecause FedEx founded ground service, it is a common misnomer that UPS is cheaper than FedEx ground. I can assure you, thats not the case. In keeping with that philosophy, Seabranch S hipCenter will beat any competitors price by 15 percent. We say, No hassles, no gimmicks, no kidding. Were not trying to get into a price war with anyone, but were just convinced that S eabranch ShipCenter must protect the customers investment. In order to succeed in this economy, we have to be conscious of the impact the economy has had on our customers pocketbook. This has been a driving principal behind the business. O utfitted with flat-screen televisions for clients comfort while in the store, the center has a varied inventory that includes a wide variety of moving supplies and U.S. Postal Service products. O ur concept here is a neighborhood pack-andship. Its more of a philosophy. Were located in a residential area, on U.S. 1 but surrounded by neighborhoods. We get whats going on in the economy, Mr. S ementelli said. W e re going out of our way to make the experience here positive and affordable. Thats where the U-Pack It, do-it-yourself concept comes into play. B ut for those who prefer professional help, S eabranch ShipCenter offers alternatives. The slogan on the door reads, You pack it or let one of our experts pack it for you. The stores staff specializes in handling large, fragile, awkward and valuable items. Mr. Sementelli, for example, is a certified advanced packing specialist, a designation from the 2,000-member Associated Mail and Parcel Centers or AMPC, the oldest and most widely recognized association in the industry. Ev en the stores layout and location make it easy for staff to handle unique shipments. With double doors, a 7-foot-wide hallway, 10-foot ceilings and ample curbside parking, the spot is perfect for carting even massive packages. In about 10 weeks since its been open, Seabranch S hipCenter has packed and shipped an antique Venetian chandelier valued between $20,000 and $30,000 and several pieces of art. W e got our designation because of the desire to handle unique shipments, said Mr. Sementelli, whos been in the shipping industry for more than 20 years. W e re experts at what we do. And satisfied customers confirm this. R ebecca Olinde, from Alvin, Texas, for instance, used the company to ship a 6-foot-tall piece of furniture made with glass and wood. The little company went of their way to cushion and crate a very valuable family heirloom, she wrote. Thanks to the experience of Anthony Sementelli and his careful packing method, I successfully received my treasure. I recommend this company to anyone who appreciates fine work ethics.

MARTIN COUNTY As 30-year residents of Martin C ounty, Ed and Joan Mc Gowan understand the critical role philanthropy plays in providing access to health care in the community. To help Martin Health S ystem fulfill its mission of providing care to residents of the Treasure Coast, the Mc Go wans recently gave a $2 million gift. The charitable gift annuity offers unrestricted support, which means the funds can be used for a variety of projects, such as technology, infrastructure, educational programs, etc. I t is an incredible feeling to help Martin Health provide care for people, said Mr. McGowan. W e have seen the health system and the community grow throughout the years and we wanted to contribute in a way that would be beneficial for everyone involved. The McGowans have a strong tradition of assisting health care through philanthropy. Since 2004, they have provided annual gifts of $100,000 toward the Martin Health Foundation Chrysanthemum Ball, which raises funds for technology and infrastructure projects. Mr. McGowan spent many years as a successful r eal estate investor in New Yo rk while Mrs. McGowan was actively involved in N ew York City arts organizations, including The Julliard School and the Metropolitan Opera. Mrs. McGowan has served for several years on the Chrysanthemum Ball committee and her expertise in the entertainment and fundraising world has greatly benefited the annual charitable event. E d and Joan have been tremendous partners with Mar tin Health, allowing us to make a significant difference in the lives of Treasure C oast residents, said Arthur M. Rusty Brink Jr., vice president and chief philanthropic officer. T heir compassion, vision and leadership have created a legacy in this community that will last for many years to come. Ma rt in Health System is a nonprofit, community based health care organization that has served the r egion for more than 70 y ears. To learn more,visit martinhealth.org.

R egular readers of this blog and my H ometown News column, and listeners to my radio show know that I praised T rueCar.com for Changing the way cars will be bought in the 21st century. Tr ueCar was started by a y oung entrepreneur, Scott P ainter, in 2008 and has grown remarkably up until now. Last year, about 235,000 cars were bought through TrueCar, 2 percent of total U.S. car sales. Private investors have poured $275 million into the company. Why was it such a good company? F or the first time ever, a car buyer was guaranteed the absolute lowest price in the market for any make and model. Once car buyers heard about TrueCar and understood what they did, it was a no-brainer. To buy a car any other way was insane. TrueCar was the best thing that ever happened to car buyers. Now, its just like every other online, car-buying service, back under the control and manipulation of the car dealers. Last week Tr ueCar knelt down and surrendered to the man, the power establishment of large car dealer groups such as AutoNation, manufacturers such as Honda, and politicians and regulators in the pockets of dealers in states such as Colorado. As the pressure mounted, Tr ueCar was forced to stop doing business in 14 states. Their dealership members plunged from 5,200 last year to 4,200 this year. TrueCar makes its money not from car buyers, but from dealers. D ealers pay TrueCar $299 for each car they sell on their program. The politicians, manufacturers and large dealer groups caused many dealers to drop out of the program costing TrueCar millions. Last week, TrueCar stopped posting the lowest price in the market for you to choose. Instead, they offer a target price. A target price is higher than the lowest price in the market. To get the lowest price, you now have to contact the dealer. Youre not much better off than you are with no buying service. The MSRP on every new car window sticker is a target price, but you have to contact the dealer to get the lower price. Ill agree that the MSRP is probably higher than the target price, but the principal is the same. If you have to negotiate with each dealer to get the real lowest price, how is the target price any better than sticker price? Now, when you go to www.TrueCar.com and try to find the lowest price, you will find all of the dealers listed have the same target price. If a dealer submits a price above the target price, he is not listed. B efore this capitulation to the power brokers, you had the price that each dealer in y our market had submitted to TrueCar as his absolute lowest price. Now that price is hidden from you, the car buyer, only the car dealer who submitted the price and TrueCar know the lowest price. In fact, other dealers dont know the lowest prices submitted by their competition. They know only their o wn lowest price. This r emoves the very essence of what formerly made Tr ueCar, the car buyers best friend: competition between car dealers. Now a TrueCar customer is right back to the old way of buying a car which is to call, email or personally visit a dealer and ask him what his best price is. This invites the same old run around that youve probably experienced hundreds of times. A re y ou prepared to buy today? That car is no longer available but I have another one just like it. When youre r eady to buy, come back and Ill beat any price you get. That $999 is our dealer fee. All dealers charge this and we r e prohibited by law from r emoving it. The pinstripes, nitrogen in the tires, paint sealant and fabric coat are an extra $1,799. Im not a lawyer, but this whole thing sounds like price-fixing to me. A free marketplace is supposed to allow and encourage sellers of the same product to offer their lowest prices to buyers. Buy ers are supposed to be enabled to easily choose the lowest price from among those offering those products. When sellers and manufacturers conspire to thwart this process, its called price fixing. Right now you can go on the Internet, click on www.Amazon.com and dozens of other online r etailers and select most any product (except a car) and find out the names of the sellers and the prices sorted from the lowest to the highest. Of course, you can also r ead customer reviews and determine shipping costs before you make your final decision. What makes cars exempt from that free market place process? Im especially disappointed in Scott Painter, founder and CEO of TrueCar, because he had a really great concept, an out-of-the box, genius idea. He could have been the Steve Jobs of online car buying services and changed the way cars we re bought all over the world, just like Steve Jobs changed the world with the M acintosh, iPod, iPhone and iPad. B ut unlike Steve Jobs, who stood up to enormous pressure from the establishment and most everyone telling him this cant succeed, Scott Painter threw in the towel to make the fast, sure buck and avoid the conflict that lay ahead. The good news is that someone will come along, take Scott Painters idea and have the courage and perseverance to make it work. That person will change the way cars are bought in the 21st century. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 10, 2012 Martin County A9 Custom Made Verticals ArchesMini Blinds W oven WoodsW ood Blinds ShuttersCellular & Pleated ShadesSheer-Wrapped Verticals 221-06272201 S.E.

thrilled. Ms. Glass has been with the school for the past three y ears, and currently has 120 in the music program. Shes looking forward to the students performing at a rock concert. S o often in choral singing they dont get this opportunity, she said. Its really opening a big door. The door first opened when the students sang at the Sunrise Theatre for a r adio program last December. The kids did such a great job, that when Foreigner said they needed a school chorus, they picked us, Ms. G lass said. Officials from Sunrise Theatre placed a call to Ms. G lass, asking if her group was interested in the opportunity. W e were so blessed to have this choir perform at the Sunrise and they were absolutely fantastic, said R enee Page, marketing director for Sunrise Theatre. The band will be so happy with them. This will be an evening of firsts for the classic rock group. While they have had school choirs perform with them in the past, this is the first time an all-girl group will sing with them, as well as the group being comprised of middle-school students. Foreigner is also known for its hits, Feels Like the F irst Time and Cold as Ic e. The band has sold more than 70 million albums. In addition to their hits, they will also perform songs from their latest album, Acoustique. In addition, the classic r ock band is donating $500 to the choir and $500 to the S unrise Theatre Foundation. In the meantime, the middle-school group has been practicing both before and after school, getting ready for their chance to shine. W e never thought we would get such a chance to sign on such a historical stage, Ms. Glass said. The girls will have musical exper ience to last a lifetime.Clubs & organizations A+ Friendship Group: N ondenominational group for age 50 and older, meets M ondays and Fridays, (except holidays), from 6:309 p.m. for cards and games.

An officer patted down the passenger and felt what seemed to be an unfiltered cigarette in the right front pocket of her jacket. She told the officer it might be a r eceipt, but it turned out to be a blunt, which is essentially a cigar filled with marijuana, instead of tobacco. The woman then blurted out, S-it, thats not all I have on me. When asked what else, she had, she said, I have more weed between my boobs. The woman also said she had half of a ro xycodone pill. The officer found a prescription bottle tucked inside the womans bra with marijuana and the half pill.A helpful criminalF ishing for fish in Martin County is legal, but a North Carolina man learned that fishing for money is against the law. Mar tin County deputies caught a man outside a coin machine with a $10 bill with a fishing line attached to it. A pparently the man was sticking the bill into the machine far enough to get change, but then pulling the bill out with the fishing line. They also found he had a $5 bill with a fishing line and a bucket of quarters inside his car. The quarters amounted to almost $300 in cash. The man not only admitted his crime, but also showed the business owner how he did it and how future such thefts could be prevented.Not having learned her lessonA Martin County woman who was serving time in the Martin County jail on w eekends for driving under the influence got the opportunity to serve more jail time. The woman had not only been sentenced to weekend jail time, but had her driver license suspended for 18 months. A deputy noticed the woman driving her car in the parking lot of the Martin County S heriffs Office with the tag lights not working. The woman explained to the deputy that she had just been released from the nearby Martin County jail where she was serving her weekend time. S he said she drove to the jail because she could no longer afford to pay people to give her a ride. As a result, the deputy took her back to the jail.

This years gala will be held on March 3, at 6:30 p .m. at Mariner Sands C ountry Club in Stuart. While the event is one of the more lighthearted on the Treasure Coast, the nonprofit organizations mission is quite serious. U nited for Families touches the lives of every known abused or neglected child in Indian River, St. Lucie, Mar tin and Okeechobee counties. The nonprofit organization, which oversees the local child welfare system throughout the multi-county area, ensures that critical services such as foster care, adoptions and protective services are available. The ultimate goal of U nited for Families is to break the cycle of child abuse through a diverse network of community partners and innovative services. While United for F amilies receives a portion of its funding through state and federal sources, the Le Bal Masque fundraiser is an important part of its financial health. As part of the annual Le B al Masque travel series, a new locale is explored every year, with the r egions cultures and customs thematically woven into the entertainment, dcor and cuisine of the evening. Guests at Le Bal M asque 2012 will be transported to the Parthenon in A thens where they will experience the many traditions of this rich culture from belly dancing to bouzouki playing and souvlaki to tzatziki. G uests of this black-tie affair will partake in traditional Greek dinner and libations, plus a thematic silent auction and live auction by local auctioneer Reed Hartman of Hartman Auction Group. The highlight of the evening includes a chance to win a $2,500 trip to Greece or anywhere in the world. T ickets are $125 or $875 for a table of eight. Funds r aised from Le Bal Masque will go towards the Road to S uccess program that prepares teenagers for life outside the foster-care system by teaching independent-living skills such as financial planning and budgeting. Thanks to the R oad to Success program more foster teens are graduating from high school and pursuing college educations, while fewer are getting into trouble with the law or experiencing homelessness. S ponsors of Le Bal M asque include the King of the Gods Sponsor Seacoast National Bank. Other sponsors include Hometown News, The Secrets of M odern Parenting/Behavior Basics, En Vogue Event P lanning, QVC and The Fir efly Group.

fect and the kick of basil makes this starter a favorite. Little surprises popped up throughout the meal. In the N ew England clam chowder, it was the robustness of bacon and a dash of black pepper livening up the seafood soup. The restaurants reputation for interesting soups precedes it. Its known, for instance, for making bacon cheese burger soup and drunken soup out of beer. H igh quality and cookedto-order food seemed to be en vogue at the three-year-old C aps Island Grille. I ts newest addition, ribs night, makes Friday the best night of the week. Come early, though, because the ribs are slow-cooked, juicy, tender, aromatic and they dont last long. Another favorite is the pizza menu that has been popular with locals and tourists. I ts white pizza proved to be an excellent choice on a r ecent visit. He re, again, little things seemed to matter. Instead of blotting on the ricotta, for example, it was clear the chef had smeared it on, making for an even distribution of the cheese and beautiful presentation. The fresh garlic added a delicious zing and the use high-quality mozzarella added to the flavor. Employees use freshly cut vegetables for toppings and the restaurant makes its own sauces and dough. The result is pies that taste fresh, and like everything else from Caps, is greeted with anticipation as it approaches the table. C aps Island Grille is located at 10999 S.Ocean Drive, J ensen Beach.For more information,call (772) 229-3287 or visit www.capsislandgrille.com.

TREASURE COAST F or high school seniors, N ational Signing Day is the beginning of the next chapter of their lives. On Feb. 1, 18 players from around the Treasure C oast signed their national letters of intent to continue the next step in their football careers at the collegiate level. Fo rt Pierce Central linebacker Freedom Whitfield, who was one of four players from Central to receive a full ride from a university, signed his national letter of intent to play college ball at Florida Atlantic U niversity. I just signed to a college knowing that Im going to be playing at the next level and Ive got everything paid for me, Whitfield said. Its just a wonderful day. Whifield, who attended two summer football camps at FAU, is excited to play under new coach Carl P elini. But it wasnt only football talk that convinced Whitfield. H e told me about how he can get me a degree, Whitfield said. Instead of just talking about football he was talking about how to balance everything out. Whitfield is excited about the next step of his life. I m just looking forward to getting out there and playing football, he said, winning games, winning bowl games, winning the (Sun Belt) Conference and just playing at FAU. Three teammates of Whitfields also signed their letters of intent with F lorida universities. D efensive back Carl Bess signed with Stetson University, while offensive linemen Bryce Hall and Z errie Patterson both signed with Florida A&M.

Well what can I say, great trout fishing but not so great offshore or for that matter on the beach. We have had some great weather for lounging but for fishing it has been tough. All the fish we would be fishing for are spotty at best. M aybe we should change targets. Su rf anglers snook season is open and yes, they are on the edge. Maybe you are fishing a little deep. These fish are at your toes. Always keep in mind it is a lot easier for them to catch dinner in a foot of water than deep. If y ou are catching whiting and croakers you are in the z one. Fishing east, not in the zone, north and south y ou are in the zone. Slide bait across the bottom and hang on. Fishing live bait put it back where it was caught and yes, you are in the zone. M ost of the snook that I have heard about have been short, but the next one could be in the slot, 28 inches to 32 inches and do not forget to squeeze the tail. Fish like it is summer. Ye s, there were blues and pompano this week just too scattered to nail them down to a pattern. Anytime is a good time, just be ready to change to a summer mode. Offshore it has been a tough week. Nice weather but sea conditions have been close, bait schools have been thin and then it looks like it might rain; tough week. B ottom fishing continues to be hot with a long list of snapper and grouper. S napper yes, grouper closed so they are eating. What is happing is there is some toothy fish chewing bait in pieces and what falls is keeping the reef dwellers busy picking up the scraps. Tr y dropping bait halfway down or maybe put live bait out behind the boat and lets see what is feeding the reef dwellers. Kings and cobia would be my guess. Tr y it and give me a call. All the info would make this fishing report a lot easier and save a lot of fuel. On the catch list this week we had cobia, kings, plenty of snapper and Spanish macs but not enough to give y ou a pattern. Make that call 334-2145. We are so lucky in our area we have fishing to fit all, just because one is less than favorable we can switch to another location and bend that rod. The river has been very busy: trout, black drum, snook and a few pompano with a mix of blues to keep y ou busy and the best part is time is not an issue. We have had excellent trout through most of the day, fishing at Bear Point, Little Mud south to Indian River Side Park, including the bridges. Live shrimp has been the favored bait. Dr um from most of the bridge access, with a run of blues and lots of jacks to keep you busy. Be careful with those ribbon fish, lots of teeth. A few pomps at the inlet and in the deeper parts of the St. Lucie but the jacks r ule. S nook at the bridges, in the flats or just about anywhere; have you thought about that summer mode? On the catch list this week we had big reds, schools of blues, plenty of trout and all the other suspects, just not a pattern. I dont care, I still like it warm and I will fish in the summer mode. Ti ll next week, keep me posted. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

Fair returns for 53rd year MARTIN COUNTY F or more than half a century, the Martin County Fair has been an anticipated source of family entertainment for the region. And this year will be no different as the fair returns for its 53rd year, running from Feb. 10-18, plus two additional days when the carnival rides remain open after the fair shuts down, organizers said. The event will be a mix of traditional favorites and new sources of entertainment that have emerged as crowd pleasers. Among them is faith night, a celebration of spiritual love and devotion that has helped distinguish the local fair.

The deputies, Lisa Webb and George Yacobellis, saved the woman, who was distraught over financial woes and marriage problems. That was one of the reasons why deputies Webb and Yacobellis, who work as partners, though they have separate vehicles, were named sworn Employees of the Year for the Martin C ounty Sheriffs Office. Ma r tin County Sheriff Robert L. Crow der recognized those two deputies and other employees, who r eceived awards last week. At the ceremony, they also received praise for helping other agencies with barricaded suspects, life-threatening medical emergencies and helping y outh in the community. D eputy Yacobellis said he just tries to do a good job. Y ou dont do the job to get awards, he said, but added: Its kind of neat to be recognized.

Fr om 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 14, several Christian performers will take to the stage to entertain fair goers. Christian rock bands, C ode of Ethics and The Great Transparency, provide energetic and relevant messages of Gods love, the groups said. Also included in the lineup is Stuart rapper Jeff W illiams, whose stage name is JDUB, a performer who mixes a spiritual message with commercial beats. I dont know of any other fair that actually has a faith night, so its actually quite popular, said Deann C antrell, secretary of the nonprofit Martin County Fair. The event has added to the popularity of the fair, which draws 60,000 to 65,000 people to Martin County. A ttendees come from as far away as North Florida, and many drive from neighboring Palm Beach County to sample the food and entertainment, fair staff said. F or decades the fair has also been the platform to celebrate Martin Countys agricultural heritage. I ts local Future Farmers of America and 4H showings give children and attendees the opportunity to interact with livestock. The programs contest allows children to spend about a year r aising livestock, such as poultry, rabbits, swine, goats and various types of cows, and present them for judging at the fair. W e do a lot to encourage agriculture and agricultural education, and there are still a lot of kids who still enjoy it. There are a lot of younger kids involved, not just with the animals but also with growing vegetables as well, Ms. Cantrell said. The Martin County Fair is a mix of fun and learning. A major draw are the daily performances of the Anastasini Circus, a clown act featuring up to seven dogs and big-top maneuvers. The list of entertainment is long. On the roster are a comedy hypnotist, puppeteers, concert bands, musicians in several genres, and local Latin bands including Florida Latin Beat and Tairon Aguilera, among other acts. The event will also feature the Miss Martin County Fair pageant on Feb. 10, beginning at 7 p.m. The annual scholarship pageant is open to freshmen to juniors at Martin County high schools. This year it attracted 29 contestants who will vye for the title.

The event will take place in Building C of the Martin C ounty Fairgrounds, located at 2616 S.E. Dixie Highway, Stuart. It runs from Fe b. 10th to 18th. Sp ecial events include beer google races, which teach teens and preteens the dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol, video game night, craft giveaways for grandparents, an opportunity for children to plant their own flowers or vegetables from seeds, and a seed, and an open-mic talent show for children. The Childrens Services C ouncil is part of what makes Martin County such a great place to live, and we r e excited to bring a new family-fun element to the 53rd annual Martin County F air, Ms. Wentley said.

O ther funding options up for consideration include a half-cent sales tax that would generate $10 million or the creation of a special taxing district both of which would require legislation at the state level. M embers wasted little time, though, in saying the committee would not consider property tax hikes to pay for inlet maintenance, when it meets later this month. This committee will ultimately provide the input which will be brought to the Ma r tin County Board of C ounty Commissioners to move maintenance forward into the future, said Martin C ounty Commissioner P atrick Hayes, the groups chairman. The idea is also to examine best practices in areas with similar waterways. When the group next meets, county staffers would have provided committee members with a brief history of the St. Lucie Inlet, information on management methods and maintenance costs for comparable inlets and cost parameters for near term and future management, said Gabriella Ferra ro communications and outreach coordinator for the Ma r tin County Board of C ounty Commissioners. Wo rk began this month to dredge the St. Lucie Inlet, after county commissioners awarded $6.4 million to a Vir ginia contractor. No r folk Dredging Company beat out three competitors, presenting the lowest bid, county staff said. It is set to begin dredging the inlet in early March and finish the project by April 30 the start of turtle nesting season. No r folk Dredging Company immediately began moving equipment including more than 25,000 feet of pipeline, said Gabriella B. F erraro, communications and outreach coordinator for the Martin County commissioners. The company must move 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet. M embers of the St. Lucie I nlet Advisory Committee include representatives from local, state and federal public agencies and the private sector. community I live in, Deputy Y acobellis said. D eputy Webb, who also said she was surprised about winning the award, has been with the sheriffs office since 2004. B efore that, she worked as a manager for a waste management business. She said she wanted a job that was more exciting and decided to enter law enforcement. S he enjoys working in a profession where every shift isnt the same, she said. As for the incident that helped her and Deputy Yacobellis win the sworn Employee of the Year awards, she r ecalled as she arrived at the causeway bridge, she saw D eputy Yacobellis talking to a woman who had one leg over the rail. D eputy Yacobellis said he tried to convince the woman to change her mind. I tried to reason with her, but it seemed like she had her mind made up, he said. At one point, the woman turned her head briefly, D eputy Webb said. That was when the two deputies made a split second decision, to grab her, Deputy Y acobellis said. They pulled her to safety, he added. O ther employees who r eceived awards were: Jan Glen Muse, a deputy in the department of law enforcement, was named outstanding deputy for that department. A 23-year-year veteran of the sheriffs office, he was recognized for being a mentor to other deputies and helping solve a case that involved the theft of $50,000 in marine equipment. Deputy Susan McAllister was named outstanding deputy for the department of administration for her work ethic, completing her duties and being first to volunteer for any task. Deputy Renee Bilodeau was recognized as outstanding deputy for the department of corrections for strong leadership abilities and leading by example. Patrick McFall, a member of the sheriffs posse, was recognized as outstanding volunteer, for among other things, using his own fuel and tools for eight hours a day for a week to help in the construction of a fence at the sheriffs officer range site. Barbara Johnson was also named an outstanding volunteer for her work at the jail. S he helps in organizing and filing paperwork.

trict, which includes Martin, St. Lucie and parts of P alm Beach counties. The state Senate and H ouse redraw district maps every 10 years, then submit them to the Florida S upreme Court and U.S. J ustice Department for approval. As drawn, Martin and St. L ucie counties would become District 18 and include northern Palm B each County. W ith my current district, Floridas 16th, essentially cut in half during the r edistricting process, I had a difficult decision to make. B arring significant changes by the courts through legal challenges, I will run for r eelection in the new Congressional District 17, he said. M inutes after Rep. Roo ney announced his intent to leave the district, fellow R epublican C ongressman Allen W est, R-Plantation, said hed seek r eelection representing the area. I have always believed the state of Florida would be best served by having both Congressman Tom R ooney and myself in the H ouse of Representatives, working to solve our nations most pressing problems, Rep. West said in a statement. I have never wavered from my vision to work to create jobs, restrain federal government spending, r educe Americas everincreasing national debt and provide for a strong national defense to ensure a safer and more prosperous future for our children and grandchildren. Re p. R ooney said serving his current district was an honor and a privilege, but he was excited about working with a rural constituency. The people of this district have always been good to me, and I look forward to r epresenting this region for another two years. I will continue to make sure their calls for a smaller and more r esponsible government, a strong national defense, a prosperous economy and much-needed private sector jobs are heard in Washington, he said. C ongressional District 17 will be the largest agricultural district in Florida and one of the largest in the country, and the farmers here are among the nations leaders in beef and dairy production. As a member of the House Agriculture C ommittee, and chairman of the subcommittee on livestock, dairy and poultry, I will continue to be a strong voice for the people of this district. A vibrant agricultural industry is not only the backbone of this district, but a key driver of both our state and national economies, and I believe that I can best serve the people of Florida as a leader on the Agriculture C ommittee and a Representative of Floridas new 17th District. He added, From the bottom of our hearts, (my wife) Tara and I thank the people of Martin, St. Lucie and Palm Beach counties for your support and kindness over the last four ye ars. Representing you has truly been an honor and a privilege. Early speculation is that Re p. W est, a first-term Congressman and Tea Party candidate will run unopposed on the Treasure C oast.

Nowadays, the buses stop every couple of blocks, while parents sit in the cars waiting with the kids. Isnt it a waste of taxpayers money? With all these new sidewalks, cant the kids walk to the bus stops? No wonder Americans are so lazy. K eep your germs at homeLast night I went to a local club where the hostess greets everyone. Our hostess was extremely ill, had been to the doctors that day, and was at work with a fever. What makes her think that she can make other people sick? If youre contagious, stay home. Biking advice I've been driving for 40 years and riding a bike for 50. I have safely operated taxis, dump trucks, garbage trucks, moving vans and even some heavy equipment on the r oads of this country (all over the place, in all kinds of conditions, from coast to coast, mountains and deserts). If I, for any reason, had ever felt the least bit confused, I would have pulled over until my head totally cleared. Y ou, obviously, are exactly the person my rant was directed toward. Yes, you are confused and conveniently omitted the fact that the statutes on bikes have several sections and should be read in their entirety to be fully understood. Anyway, law aside, if you are confused by a bike, dog, kid on a tricycle, skateboarder, wheelchair or pretty much anything at all, then maybe you should do us all a favor and park it, baby. The rest of us should be allowed to feel safe and the thought of confused people driving doesn't do it for me. I'm just guessing, but I don't think it does it for anyone. Stop beggingI saw a bunch of children standing at Wal-Mart out there selling cookies. I think its a disgrace. It seems every week people are begging for money. Theres no need to have children out there.A welfare fixI would like to know, as some others here in the Sunshine State of Florida, what is going on with the offices here? Why are so many illegal immigrants able to get food stamps and have Social Security cards and get free stuff from this state? Why are we taking care of people who sneak into the U.S. and we can't even take care of the people who were born here and work their whole lives here? Then we have people who are on welfare who don't need to be on it at all. Are the people who work these jobs really checking the paperwork or just once in a while? If the immigrants want to stay, let them go through the right channels. The Social Security office should have a special card for immigrants to use, with pictures on them that they can't take off or change with someone. The same thing goes for the food stamp office. The office heads should get off their bottoms and do something about it. The offices should link together by computers, too. Why does the Social Security office issue new cards and numbers when someone loses theirs? They should look up the person on the file database before issuing a new card, then issue a new one with the same number. There are some people with two or more Social Security cards. Then they head to food stamp office to get help with these new cards. There are so many Americans who need help in this area and can't get it because of this problem. The system we have is broken down, so, let's fix it now.Agreeing with ranterI completely agree with the mother who wrote Sick of deadbeat dad. We do have an ineffective legal system that needs to be fixed. We do already have laws in place, but they are not being enforced. Its the loafers we need to kick out. This includes state attorneys, judges, magistrates, hearing officers, sheriff, detectives, department of revenue attorneys and child support enforcement workers. F lorida Statute 827.06 makes it a felony in criminal court (moved from family law court) if the deadbeat parent had four or more contempts and owes $5,000 or more for over one year. In addition, if the parent willfully failed to make sufficient good faith effort to pay child support it is also in criminal violation of this statute. So why arent these laws being enforced? I would assume because it would open the floodgates and create more work for these paid state attorneys, judges and others, sheriff, detectives, etc. who just want to put in their 9-5 hours and go home. They would rather prosecute a $5 T-shirt stolen from Walmart than prosecute a deadbeat dad owing more than $90,000 such as in my case. P eople in these positions of power are making their own r ules as to what is enough evidence or not, depending on if they feel like prosecuting, or taking on more work. They are abusing their authority and taking away our rights, our children's rights. Yes, it is election year and we need to get r id of a lot of people that are not doing their job. Lets fix our system now! I encourage all mothers (and dads) who have a deadbeat parent and fit the criteria of Florida Statute 827.06 to take y our first step and get all your papers and file a complaint with the sheriffs office. They cant deny all of us! Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or email news@hometownnewsol.com.

Sitting quiet for story timeMitch Kloorfain /chief photographerScott Berry, executive director of the Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties read (and almost sang) to the children of the Gertrude Walden Center Tuesday, Jan. 31 at Barnes & Noble book store in Jensen Beach. Sometimes when computers malfunction, the timing can be coincidental causing you to chase your tail around trying to fix it. M ost of the time when y our computer starts acting squirrelly its good practice to consider the last thing that happened r ight before the problem popped up and then try to undo whatever it is that was changed. Then again, sometimes undoing the last thing that happened can be a red herring causing you to spin y our wheels for hours. Take this recent email I received from George for instance: H i Sean, read your articles every week and look forward to them. Its the first article I look for in H ometown News. S ean, I was having a problem with my M icrosoft mouse, so my son gave me an optical mouse to install. I just disconnected the old one and plugged in the optical mouse and turned the computer on. It began loading files for it and now every time I turn on the computer I have to hit F1 to continue loading windows. Then Im told that Windows had updated my computer clock and asks me to check it. It is always wrong and I have to correct the month, year and time. Do you have any ideas what is causing this because it never has done this before. Im sure it had to do with adding the new mouse. I recall reading one of your articles where you said most computer problems were due to software added to the computer. Any corrections I can make? Thank you in advance and please dont stop writing your articles because you certainly have made a big difference to so many of us. On the surface it would appear George is on the r ight track because he knows that when he added the new hardware (the mouse) and often when new hardware is installed problems can occur. But after reading his email, and considering what was going on, I realized that George was about to start chasing rabbits. This is how I replied to George: H i, Thanks for reading. Whats happening on your system likely has nothing to do with the new mouse. J ust coincidence that it started happening at the same time you added a new piece of hardware. Y our machine is probably older than three years, yes? On your motherboard is a small battery like that found in a watch. When that battery runs down you will have to hit F1 every time you boot and reset the clock. W ith the battery dead it looses track of time when it powers down and all BIOS settings have to be r eset on boot up. U n-plug the system, open the can and look for a watch like battery (probably about the size of a quarter) and replace it. That ought to correct the issue. Hope that helps and thanks again for reading. The next day I opened my email and found the following email from Geor ge. H ello Sean, thank you so much for the info on the dead battery. I never thought of that and yes, my machine is over seven y ears old and still running an old version of Windows. I have never opened the can, but the way you explained it I think I can do that. I will let you know how I make out. Again thank you so much for y our help. And the day after that: H ello Sean, just a follow up on your advice regarding replacing the computers battery. It worked like a charm. I looked in the computer manual to find the info on the battery (CR2032), purchased a r eplacement from Radio S hack, opened the can and even I accomplished this task. Will wonders never end? Again, thank you so much for your help andDont chase tail when looking for PC fixes COMP UTE THISSE AN MCCARTHY Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 1102 South U.S. 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950 Copyright 2011, Hometown News L.C.Phone (772) 465-5656 Fax (772) 465-5301Classified (800) 823-0466 Rants & Raves (866) 465-5504Circulation Inquiries 1 -866-913-6397 circulation@hometownnewsol.comMARTINV oted # 1 Community Newspaper in America in 2005, 2006, 2007.

The attractive and spacious Seabranch ShipCenter, located at 5667 S.E. Crooked Oak Ave., Hobe S ound, encourages customers to bring their own packing material. In fact, its U-Pack-It center was built for just that. The large, open space near the front of the store encourages clients to save money with their own do-ity ourself packaging. I f they need more mater ial, our shelves are fully stocked, so they can take it off the shelves and use it. We only charge for what they use, said Anthony S ementelli, general manager of Seabranch ShipCenter. M ost packing and shipping centers discourage customers from bringing in their own packaging materials. Thats one of the things that sets the new shipping company apart. Another is its affiliation with FedEx, the international corporation. As a FedEx-authorized ship center, Seabranch offers one-, twoand threeday air shipping, as well as F edExs threeto five-day ground service. B ecause FedEx founded ground service, it is a common misnomer that UPS is cheaper than FedEx ground. I can assure you, thats not the case. In keeping with that philosophy, Seabranch S hipCenter will beat any competitors price by 15 percent. We say, No hassles, no gimmicks, no kidding. Were not trying to get into a price war with anyone, but were just convinced that S eabranch ShipCenter must protect the customers investment. In order to succeed in this economy, we have to be conscious of the impact the economy has had on our customers pocketbook. This has been a driving principal behind the business. O utfitted with flat-screen televisions for clients comfort while in the store, the center has a varied inventory that includes a wide variety of moving supplies and U.S. Postal Service products. O ur concept here is a neighborhood pack-andship. Its more of a philosophy. Were located in a residential area, on U.S. 1 but surrounded by neighborhoods. We get whats going on in the economy, Mr. S ementelli said. W e re going out of our way to make the experience here positive and affordable. Thats where the U-Pack It, do-it-yourself concept comes into play. B ut for those who prefer professional help, S eabranch ShipCenter offers alternatives. The slogan on the door reads, You pack it or let one of our experts pack it for you. The stores staff specializes in handling large, fragile, awkward and valuable items. Mr. Sementelli, for example, is a certified advanced packing specialist, a designation from the 2,000-member Associated Mail and Parcel Centers or AMPC, the oldest and most widely recognized association in the industry. Ev en the stores layout and location make it easy for staff to handle unique shipments. With double doors, a 7-foot-wide hallway, 10-foot ceilings and ample curbside parking, the spot is perfect for carting even massive packages. In about 10 weeks since its been open, Seabranch S hipCenter has packed and shipped an antique Venetian chandelier valued between $20,000 and $30,000 and several pieces of art. W e got our designation because of the desire to handle unique shipments, said Mr. Sementelli, whos been in the shipping industry for more than 20 years. W e re experts at what we do. And satisfied customers confirm this. R ebecca Olinde, from Alvin, Texas, for instance, used the company to ship a 6-foot-tall piece of furniture made with glass and wood. The little company went of their way to cushion and crate a very valuable family heirloom, she wrote. Thanks to the experience of Anthony Sementelli and his careful packing method, I successfully received my treasure. I recommend this company to anyone who appreciates fine work ethics.

MARTIN COUNTY As 30-year residents of Martin C ounty, Ed and Joan Mc Gowan understand the critical role philanthropy plays in providing access to health care in the community. To help Martin Health S ystem fulfill its mission of providing care to residents of the Treasure Coast, the Mc Go wans recently gave a $2 million gift. The charitable gift annuity offers unrestricted support, which means the funds can be used for a variety of projects, such as technology, infrastructure, educational programs, etc. I t is an incredible feeling to help Martin Health provide care for people, said Mr. McGowan. W e have seen the health system and the community grow throughout the years and we wanted to contribute in a way that would be beneficial for everyone involved. The McGowans have a strong tradition of assisting health care through philanthropy. Since 2004, they have provided annual gifts of $100,000 toward the Martin Health Foundation Chrysanthemum Ball, which raises funds for technology and infrastructure projects. Mr. McGowan spent many years as a successful r eal estate investor in New Yo rk while Mrs. McGowan was actively involved in N ew York City arts organizations, including The Julliard School and the Metropolitan Opera. Mrs. McGowan has served for several years on the Chrysanthemum Ball committee and her expertise in the entertainment and fundraising world has greatly benefited the annual charitable event. E d and Joan have been tremendous partners with Mar tin Health, allowing us to make a significant difference in the lives of Treasure C oast residents, said Arthur M. Rusty Brink Jr., vice president and chief philanthropic officer. T heir compassion, vision and leadership have created a legacy in this community that will last for many years to come. Ma rt in Health System is a nonprofit, community based health care organization that has served the r egion for more than 70 y ears. To learn more,visit martinhealth.org.

R egular readers of this blog and my H ometown News column, and listeners to my radio show know that I praised T rueCar.com for Changing the way cars will be bought in the 21st century. Tr ueCar was started by a y oung entrepreneur, Scott P ainter, in 2008 and has grown remarkably up until now. Last year, about 235,000 cars were bought through TrueCar, 2 percent of total U.S. car sales. Private investors have poured $275 million into the company. Why was it such a good company? F or the first time ever, a car buyer was guaranteed the absolute lowest price in the market for any make and model. Once car buyers heard about TrueCar and understood what they did, it was a no-brainer. To buy a car any other way was insane. TrueCar was the best thing that ever happened to car buyers. Now, its just like every other online, car-buying service, back under the control and manipulation of the car dealers. Last week Tr ueCar knelt down and surrendered to the man, the power establishment of large car dealer groups such as AutoNation, manufacturers such as Honda, and politicians and regulators in the pockets of dealers in states such as Colorado. As the pressure mounted, Tr ueCar was forced to stop doing business in 14 states. Their dealership members plunged from 5,200 last year to 4,200 this year. TrueCar makes its money not from car buyers, but from dealers. D ealers pay TrueCar $299 for each car they sell on their program. The politicians, manufacturers and large dealer groups caused many dealers to drop out of the program costing TrueCar millions. Last week, TrueCar stopped posting the lowest price in the market for you to choose. Instead, they offer a target price. A target price is higher than the lowest price in the market. To get the lowest price, you now have to contact the dealer. Youre not much better off than you are with no buying service. The MSRP on every new car window sticker is a target price, but you have to contact the dealer to get the lower price. Ill agree that the MSRP is probably higher than the target price, but the principal is the same. If you have to negotiate with each dealer to get the real lowest price, how is the target price any better than sticker price? Now, when you go to www.TrueCar.com and try to find the lowest price, you will find all of the dealers listed have the same target price. If a dealer submits a price above the target price, he is not listed. B efore this capitulation to the power brokers, you had the price that each dealer in y our market had submitted to TrueCar as his absolute lowest price. Now that price is hidden from you, the car buyer, only the car dealer who submitted the price and TrueCar know the lowest price. In fact, other dealers dont know the lowest prices submitted by their competition. They know only their o wn lowest price. This r emoves the very essence of what formerly made Tr ueCar, the car buyers best friend: competition between car dealers. Now a TrueCar customer is right back to the old way of buying a car which is to call, email or personally visit a dealer and ask him what his best price is. This invites the same old run around that youve probably experienced hundreds of times. A re y ou prepared to buy today? That car is no longer available but I have another one just like it. When youre r eady to buy, come back and Ill beat any price you get. That $999 is our dealer fee. All dealers charge this and we r e prohibited by law from r emoving it. The pinstripes, nitrogen in the tires, paint sealant and fabric coat are an extra $1,799. Im not a lawyer, but this whole thing sounds like price-fixing to me. A free marketplace is supposed to allow and encourage sellers of the same product to offer their lowest prices to buyers. Buy ers are supposed to be enabled to easily choose the lowest price from among those offering those products. When sellers and manufacturers conspire to thwart this process, its called price fixing. Right now you can go on the Internet, click on www.Amazon.com and dozens of other online r etailers and select most any product (except a car) and find out the names of the sellers and the prices sorted from the lowest to the highest. Of course, you can also r ead customer reviews and determine shipping costs before you make your final decision. What makes cars exempt from that free market place process? Im especially disappointed in Scott Painter, founder and CEO of TrueCar, because he had a really great concept, an out-of-the box, genius idea. He could have been the Steve Jobs of online car buying services and changed the way cars we re bought all over the world, just like Steve Jobs changed the world with the M acintosh, iPod, iPhone and iPad. B ut unlike Steve Jobs, who stood up to enormous pressure from the establishment and most everyone telling him this cant succeed, Scott Painter threw in the towel to make the fast, sure buck and avoid the conflict that lay ahead. The good news is that someone will come along, take Scott Painters idea and have the courage and perseverance to make it work. That person will change the way cars are bought in the 21st century. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 10, 2012 Martin County A9 Custom Made Verticals ArchesMini Blinds W oven WoodsW ood Blinds ShuttersCellular & Pleated ShadesSheer-Wrapped Verticals 221-06272201 S.E.

MARTIN COUNTY The Hobe Sound Child Ca re C enter, a nonprofit provider of early learning for children ages 1 through 5, officially changed its name to the Hobe Sound Early Learning Center. Loretta Kocik, president of the HSELC board of directors, said the new name more aptly reflects the offerings of HSELC. O ur teachers not only care for and about children, but they also teach them socialization and developmental skills, build on their individual potential and give them a solid foundation for the rest of their school years. HSELC is a true learning environment, said Ms. K ocik. The Hobe Sound Early Learning Center has been an integral part of the Hobe S ound and Martin County community since 1962. It currently has 140 enrolled children. Every child r eceives a subsidy toward tuition costs, and families in need can apply for various scholarship programs. The Hobe Sound Early Learning Center is fully accredited by Accredited Pr ofessional Preschool Learning Environment and is licensed by the state. In 2011, it extended its offerings to include a program for 1-year-old children in response to a need in the community. C elebrating its 50th anniversary this year, HSELC will hold a party for its alumni on March 8 at the center. H obe Sound Early Learning Center offers all families, r egardless of background or income, affordable earlychildhood nurture, education and recreation that stimulates healthy emotional and social development and helps prepare children to excel in school and life. Mo re information about HSELC is available at its newly-launched web site, www.hobesoundearlylearningcenter.org or on its Facebook page.

thrilled. Ms. Glass has been with the school for the past three y ears, and currently has 120 in the music program. Shes looking forward to the students performing at a rock concert. S o often in choral singing they dont get this opportunity, she said. Its really opening a big door. The door first opened when the students sang at the Sunrise Theatre for a r adio program last December. The kids did such a great job, that when Foreigner said they needed a school chorus, they picked us, Ms. G lass said. Officials from Sunrise Theatre placed a call to Ms. G lass, asking if her group was interested in the opportunity. W e were so blessed to have this choir perform at the Sunrise and they were absolutely fantastic, said R enee Page, marketing director for Sunrise Theatre. The band will be so happy with them. This will be an evening of firsts for the classic rock group. While they have had school choirs perform with them in the past, this is the first time an all-girl group will sing with them, as well as the group being comprised of middle-school students. Foreigner is also known for its hits, Feels Like the F irst Time and Cold as Ic e. The band has sold more than 70 million albums. In addition to their hits, they will also perform songs from their latest album, Acoustique. In addition, the classic r ock band is donating $500 to the choir and $500 to the S unrise Theatre Foundation. In the meantime, the middle-school group has been practicing both before and after school, getting ready for their chance to shine. W e never thought we would get such a chance to sign on such a historical stage, Ms. Glass said. The girls will have musical exper ience to last a lifetime.Clubs & organizations A+ Friendship Group: N ondenominational group for age 50 and older, meets M ondays and Fridays, (except holidays), from 6:309 p.m. for cards and games.

An officer patted down the passenger and felt what seemed to be an unfiltered cigarette in the right front pocket of her jacket. She told the officer it might be a r eceipt, but it turned out to be a blunt, which is essentially a cigar filled with marijuana, instead of tobacco. The woman then blurted out, S-it, thats not all I have on me. When asked what else, she had, she said, I have more weed between my boobs. The woman also said she had half of a ro xycodone pill. The officer found a prescription bottle tucked inside the womans bra with marijuana and the half pill.A helpful criminalF ishing for fish in Martin County is legal, but a North Carolina man learned that fishing for money is against the law. Mar tin County deputies caught a man outside a coin machine with a $10 bill with a fishing line attached to it. A pparently the man was sticking the bill into the machine far enough to get change, but then pulling the bill out with the fishing line. They also found he had a $5 bill with a fishing line and a bucket of quarters inside his car. The quarters amounted to almost $300 in cash. The man not only admitted his crime, but also showed the business owner how he did it and how future such thefts could be prevented.Not having learned her lessonA Martin County woman who was serving time in the Martin County jail on w eekends for driving under the influence got the opportunity to serve more jail time. The woman had not only been sentenced to weekend jail time, but had her driver license suspended for 18 months. A deputy noticed the woman driving her car in the parking lot of the Martin County S heriffs Office with the tag lights not working. The woman explained to the deputy that she had just been released from the nearby Martin County jail where she was serving her weekend time. S he said she drove to the jail because she could no longer afford to pay people to give her a ride. As a result, the deputy took her back to the jail.

This years gala will be held on March 3, at 6:30 p .m. at Mariner Sands C ountry Club in Stuart. While the event is one of the more lighthearted on the Treasure Coast, the nonprofit organizations mission is quite serious. U nited for Families touches the lives of every known abused or neglected child in Indian River, St. Lucie, Mar tin and Okeechobee counties. The nonprofit organization, which oversees the local child welfare system throughout the multi-county area, ensures that critical services such as foster care, adoptions and protective services are available. The ultimate goal of U nited for Families is to break the cycle of child abuse through a diverse network of community partners and innovative services. While United for F amilies receives a portion of its funding through state and federal sources, the Le Bal Masque fundraiser is an important part of its financial health. As part of the annual Le B al Masque travel series, a new locale is explored every year, with the r egions cultures and customs thematically woven into the entertainment, dcor and cuisine of the evening. Guests at Le Bal M asque 2012 will be transported to the Parthenon in A thens where they will experience the many traditions of this rich culture from belly dancing to bouzouki playing and souvlaki to tzatziki. G uests of this black-tie affair will partake in traditional Greek dinner and libations, plus a thematic silent auction and live auction by local auctioneer Reed Hartman of Hartman Auction Group. The highlight of the evening includes a chance to win a $2,500 trip to Greece or anywhere in the world. T ickets are $125 or $875 for a table of eight. Funds r aised from Le Bal Masque will go towards the Road to S uccess program that prepares teenagers for life outside the foster-care system by teaching independent-living skills such as financial planning and budgeting. Thanks to the R oad to Success program more foster teens are graduating from high school and pursuing college educations, while fewer are getting into trouble with the law or experiencing homelessness. S ponsors of Le Bal M asque include the King of the Gods Sponsor Seacoast National Bank. Other sponsors include Hometown News, The Secrets of M odern Parenting/Behavior Basics, En Vogue Event P lanning, QVC and The Fir efly Group.

fect and the kick of basil makes this starter a favorite. Little surprises popped up throughout the meal. In the N ew England clam chowder, it was the robustness of bacon and a dash of black pepper livening up the seafood soup. The restaurants reputation for interesting soups precedes it. Its known, for instance, for making bacon cheese burger soup and drunken soup out of beer. H igh quality and cookedto-order food seemed to be en vogue at the three-year-old C aps Island Grille. I ts newest addition, ribs night, makes Friday the best night of the week. Come early, though, because the ribs are slow-cooked, juicy, tender, aromatic and they dont last long. Another favorite is the pizza menu that has been popular with locals and tourists. I ts white pizza proved to be an excellent choice on a r ecent visit. He re, again, little things seemed to matter. Instead of blotting on the ricotta, for example, it was clear the chef had smeared it on, making for an even distribution of the cheese and beautiful presentation. The fresh garlic added a delicious zing and the use high-quality mozzarella added to the flavor. Employees use freshly cut vegetables for toppings and the restaurant makes its own sauces and dough. The result is pies that taste fresh, and like everything else from Caps, is greeted with anticipation as it approaches the table. C aps Island Grille is located at 10999 S.Ocean Drive, J ensen Beach.For more information,call (772) 229-3287 or visit www.capsislandgrille.com.

TREASURE COAST F or high school seniors, N ational Signing Day is the beginning of the next chapter of their lives. On Feb. 1, 18 players from around the Treasure C oast signed their national letters of intent to continue the next step in their football careers at the collegiate level. Fo rt Pierce Central linebacker Freedom Whitfield, who was one of four players from Central to receive a full ride from a university, signed his national letter of intent to play college ball at Florida Atlantic U niversity. I just signed to a college knowing that Im going to be playing at the next level and Ive got everything paid for me, Whitfield said. Its just a wonderful day. Whifield, who attended two summer football camps at FAU, is excited to play under new coach Carl P elini. But it wasnt only football talk that convinced Whitfield. H e told me about how he can get me a degree, Whitfield said. Instead of just talking about football he was talking about how to balance everything out. Whitfield is excited about the next step of his life. I m just looking forward to getting out there and playing football, he said, winning games, winning bowl games, winning the (Sun Belt) Conference and just playing at FAU. Three teammates of Whitfields also signed their letters of intent with F lorida universities. D efensive back Carl Bess signed with Stetson University, while offensive linemen Bryce Hall and Z errie Patterson both signed with Florida A&M.

Well what can I say, great trout fishing but not so great offshore or for that matter on the beach. We have had some great weather for lounging but for fishing it has been tough. All the fish we would be fishing for are spotty at best. M aybe we should change targets. Su rf anglers snook season is open and yes, they are on the edge. Maybe you are fishing a little deep. These fish are at your toes. Always keep in mind it is a lot easier for them to catch dinner in a foot of water than deep. If y ou are catching whiting and croakers you are in the z one. Fishing east, not in the zone, north and south y ou are in the zone. Slide bait across the bottom and hang on. Fishing live bait put it back where it was caught and yes, you are in the zone. M ost of the snook that I have heard about have been short, but the next one could be in the slot, 28 inches to 32 inches and do not forget to squeeze the tail. Fish like it is summer. Ye s, there were blues and pompano this week just too scattered to nail them down to a pattern. Anytime is a good time, just be ready to change to a summer mode. Offshore it has been a tough week. Nice weather but sea conditions have been close, bait schools have been thin and then it looks like it might rain; tough week. B ottom fishing continues to be hot with a long list of snapper and grouper. S napper yes, grouper closed so they are eating. What is happing is there is some toothy fish chewing bait in pieces and what falls is keeping the reef dwellers busy picking up the scraps. Tr y dropping bait halfway down or maybe put live bait out behind the boat and lets see what is feeding the reef dwellers. Kings and cobia would be my guess. Tr y it and give me a call. All the info would make this fishing report a lot easier and save a lot of fuel. On the catch list this week we had cobia, kings, plenty of snapper and Spanish macs but not enough to give y ou a pattern. Make that call 334-2145. We are so lucky in our area we have fishing to fit all, just because one is less than favorable we can switch to another location and bend that rod. The river has been very busy: trout, black drum, snook and a few pompano with a mix of blues to keep y ou busy and the best part is time is not an issue. We have had excellent trout through most of the day, fishing at Bear Point, Little Mud south to Indian River Side Park, including the bridges. Live shrimp has been the favored bait. Dr um from most of the bridge access, with a run of blues and lots of jacks to keep you busy. Be careful with those ribbon fish, lots of teeth. A few pomps at the inlet and in the deeper parts of the St. Lucie but the jacks r ule. S nook at the bridges, in the flats or just about anywhere; have you thought about that summer mode? On the catch list this week we had big reds, schools of blues, plenty of trout and all the other suspects, just not a pattern. I dont care, I still like it warm and I will fish in the summer mode. Ti ll next week, keep me posted. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.
