E xecutive director Noel Thomas said the group is working on a safe home that would house four children and two guardians or house parents. He would not disclose the propertys location, citing the importance of secrecy in safeguarding the victims and caretakers, but said the house is on the Treasure Coast and sits on plenty of land. O ur facility will not be a lockeddown facility because all their lives (the victims) have been locked down, Mr. Thomas said. Were r eady to start breaking the mold. City Commissioner Troy McDonald, who joined the groups board last week, said its work was a worthy endeavor that would help meet a staggering need. C ommunities, such as Martin C ounty, are not free of this sort of assaults, he said. Stuart and Martin County are not immune to this kind of crime. R edeem the Shadows administrator said the group is working with several agencies across the region MARTIN COUNTY The idea that Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, would have no Republican primary election in his bid for the proposed D istrict 18 Congressional seat is out. In instead is a new Republican contender, longtime Martin County Sheriff Robert Crowder, who will face Rep. West for the new district that would include Martin, St. L ucie and northern Palm Beach counties. The thought of representing the people of my home district has been something thats appealed to me for a long time, but I wasnt going to run against a good incumbent thats doing a good job, said S heriff Crowder. He said his decision came after incumbent Rep. Tom Rooney, RT equesta, announced plans to leave the Treasure C oast region to represent a large rural area in south central F lorida if the proposed House redistricting maps take effect.

The man reported to the Ma r tin County Sheriffs Office that a man with an African-sounding accent approached him and wanted to know the address for a church. When the victim didnt know the location of the church, the suspect asked him for a ride to a shopping center, an incident report said. After arriving at the shopping center, the suspect started talking with another man, the second suspect, who had a grocery store identification tag and identified himself as James Porter, a manager at the store, the r eport said. The first suspect told the victim he had inherited $250,000 and wanted to donate all the money to the church, the report said. He pulled out two wads of cash, claiming that it amounted to $200,000, and said he was going to give the Clay shooting, auction in food bank benefit TREASURE COAST An outdoor fundraiser that includes auctions and shooting sporting clays will benefit the Treasure Coast F ood Bank.

and worked in public service about 40 years, said he wanted to give voters a choice of local candidate. I think I could be someone they could feel comfortable having represent them in Washington and showing concern for their problems and their issues, he said. Re p. W est, a Tea Party favorite who now represents District 22, has a war chest of nearly $5.9 million. Hi s campaign did not comment on the sheriffs entry into the race. B ut when he spoke to H ometown News earlier in the month, political pundits had him pegged as the only R epublican candidate whod run for the district. B ut the Congressman said he was leaving little to chance. M eanwhile, Sheriff Crowder, a moderate Republican, said he offered voters a v oice against the rising tide of combative politics that we v e been seeing. I think I have a cooperative demeanor that can move things forward, instead of perpetuating this gridlock that seems to be tying things up in Congress, he said. As for his opponent in the R epublican race, Sheriff Crowde r said, I have no problems with Congressman West. I admire his military career and his willingness to come back to serve. (My decision to run) is not about him. I feel someone from our district needs to r epresent our district. H is campaign will focus on creating jobs, strengthening the economy, protecting the environment and maintaining the r egions infrastructure. Mr. Crowder has been Ma r tin Countys sheriff for 20 years and a law enforcement veteran for 48. His current term ends Jan. 7, 2013. Last March he announced he would not r un for reelection. T wo candidates have declared their intention to r un for sheriff. Rep. William Sn y der, a former Martin C ounty Sheriffs major, who once faced off with Sheriff Cro w der for the top law enforcement job, is a candidate. Also in the running is Ma j. J ohn Pietruszewski, a 28-year veteran in the Martin County Sheriffs Office. S heriff Crowder said he plans to complete his term, but might have to resign a few days early if elected to C ongress. D espite the outcome of the Republican primary, one Democratic contender has already entered the race for the proposed district. Fo rt Lauderdale businessman Patrick Murphy has r aised $1.4 million running a campaign that pits him as the alternative to Rep. West. One of his key messages: stop the Tea Party darling, his campaign said. F riday, February 24, 2012 A2 Martin County Hometown News 761857 Car Accident?

Then the man told Mr. Po r ter and the victim that he wanted them to each give him money that he would hold as part of a truth test, the report said. Mr. Porter went into a bank, came out with $8,000 and gave it to the other suspect, the report said.

Afterward, both suspects left and the victim never r eceived the $100,000 to give to the church, he reported.

Wo r kers with the Norfolk Dr edging Company of Virginia have started fulfilling the $6.4 million contract from the Martin County board of commissioners to r emove 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet. That project requires them to assemble 25,000 feet of pipeline to move the excav ated material from the channel and impoundment basin to the beach in the Ho be Sound Wildlife Refuge, said Gabriella Ferraro, a spokeswoman for the commissioners. Dur ing assembly, the pipeline will be floating on the waters surface, said Ms. F erraro, who added that most of the work will take place on land. B uoys will clearly mark the location of the floating pipeline. Once complete, the pipeline will be submerged and will run along the bottom of the channel. Dr edging is set to start the first week of March, and officials expect the project to last until the end of April, in time for turtle nesting season. In the meantime, they advise boaters to drive carefully and observe all navigation aids. C ontractors will make every effort to minimize impacts to boaters. At no time will access to the inlet be blocked, Ms. Ferraro said. Officials said the project will help make the inlet safer for travel by removing sand buildup caused by the natur al flow of water moving from north to south. This shoaling or build up creates navigational obstructions and limits the use of the inlet as Martin Countys only outlet to the ocean.Moms to model spring fashions at luncheonMARTIN COUNTY Local mothers will model the latest fashions from C ache/Treasure Coast Mall at the Marys Shelter second annual fashion show and luncheon on Feb. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart. H osted by WPTV 5 news anchor Kelley Dunn, the signature event will support r esidential services and programs for homeless pregnant women and their babies. S tepping into an exciting and colorful spring collection from Cache will be guest models and mothers Kimberly Blazie, Diana Eaton, M ichelle Mackey, Amy Rainis and Angela Trybul. W e re looking forward to a fun-filled afternoon of stylish fashion, networking and r aising awareness of the lifesaving work that Marys Shelter is doing to help young mothers and babies in our community, said Ms. Trybul, a Stuart mother of three who serves on the event committee and recruited fellow moms to model in the show. W e are delighted to partner with Cache/Treasure C oast Mall as this years fashion sponsor, said Angela Lowe, executive director of Ma ry s S helter.

The resulting profile from W ashington matched Mr. Ca r denas, who was located and arrested by deputies, she said. The woman reported during the early morning hours of Jan. 27 she awoke and saw a man standing in her bedroom doorway, the arrest affidavit said. The woman said when she got out of bed, the man grabbed her, pushed her back into the bed and sexually assaulted her, the affidavit said. S he told him she had money in her car and he forced her to accompany him to the car, the woman told investigators. When she pushed a panic button on her key remote that caused the cars alarm to go off, the man turned it off and threatened to kill her if she tried something again, she reported. The woman said she ran from the rapist, who pursued her, report said. The man knocked her to the ground and kicked her several times, before fleeing, the report said. Although the woman r eported she believed the man is black, an arrest affidavit said that Mr. Cardenas is white. When investigators arrested Mr. Cardenas, he told several stories, the r eport said. F irst, he denied having sex with anyone; then, he said he paid a woman $40 for sex, the report said. H is final story matched that of the victim, the report said.

Cops bullying citizens would be a good place to start. Ev en though Tom Rooneys district has been dramatically changed by redistricting, we are fortunate that he will be able to remain in Congress. He has consistently represented common sense in the form of smaller and more responsible government, a prosperous economy and perhaps most important, muchneeded private-sector jobs. Anything he can do to help get Florida moving forward again would help people with homes under water.Deadbeat dads should payIt is destructive that our legal system has the tools but is not using them effectively. If a deadbeat dad is caught he should pay the consequences. Among the guilty in the legal system are state attorneys, judges, hearing officers, child support enforcement employees and lawyers. We have the laws in place. Lets insist on prompt and vigorous enforcement.P ostal service demiseOne of the reasons the postal department is going broke is because they have high rates for us regular people and very low rates for the people who send out junk mail. I received three junk-mail envelopes today and all paid only 19 cents and I pay 45 cents.Check your childs social sitesPar ents need to monitor your childs Facebook, Twitter, I nstagram and any other social accounts they have. Some of your children are not who you think they are. I can tell you from reading my daughters wall that your student of the year is not the character of the year. Some of y our children are really nasty and mean. P lease take a moment to look at your childs pages. Look in their inboxes at the conversations they have and read what they post on others walls. Some of you may be shocked! Some of you may be pleasantly surprised. T ake the time and do it now before another student gets hurt. I am begging you, this time it was my daughter who got hurt, next time it could be yours.Europe?What do people mean when they say, Dont follow Eur ope? Thats the whole point! We are already part of Eur ope. What do you think the word global means? Ev erything talked about today is global. I cant believe so many people dont get it. Pr ograms and documentaries (even PBS) showing documentaries about how wonderful it is to visit China, Vietnam, Guam and even Moscow. With arms outstretched, w elcome to China. Obama pushing for less-strict laws letting other countries visit Florida! For me, I dont think so! Is n t it enough China is shipping bugs (ticks) into our ports literally killing people and destroying elm trees in M assachusetts? How many of you hear gravel-voiced Henry Kissinger quote, Its time for a new world order? Thats global. One world order,one world system. one currency (eventually), one leader. Its here. Like the Three M usketeers, all for one and one for all, which, in the global game, is pure and simple communism. What happens to one country happens to the rest. Who doesnt get this yet?W estern suicide?So me years ago there was a book about the suicide of the w est. C uts in the size of our defense budget may make the books dire predictions come true. At a time when the U.S. faces serious threats from Iran, a near civil war in Syria, a shooting war in Afghanistan and a w eird, unpredictable dictator in North Korea, any reductions in our preparedness are unthinkable. The administrations budget, 12.2 percent down from the level the Pentagon requested last year, is unthinkable. It could mean the suicide of the West. Got something to say?

When it comes to sending attachments through email, most people have one thing in mind: pictures. But sending other file types through email can be one of the most massively useful abilities that the Internet offers. Picture this: Youre working on a file at the office, and its a Word or Ex cel document. A colleague in another part of town or another office needs to see the file. Many people will take the time to print out and physically deliver or fax the document to their colleague, not r ealizing that the email system can be used to deliver any kind of file right to another computer. A ttach the file in an email message to your colleague, just as you would if you we re sending a picture. As long as your colleague has the same software that you used to create it, he or she should be able to save it to his or her hard drive or open it just like any other file. Then your colleague can print the document, if he or she wants, or handle it as needed. It is, however, the senders r esponsibility to make sure that the recipients will be able to open the file before it is sent. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email message marked H eres the file you wanted only to find that the file is in some format that youve never heard of and your computer cant open it. F or instance, if youre planning to send a Word document, find out what word processor the recipient uses. Even if he is also using Word, he may be using an older version of Wo rd than you are, which could cause a problem if he tries to open a file that was created in a newer version.

S itting at opposite ends of a newly redesigned showroom with beachhouse chic designer touches, co-owners Theresa Trapani and Leah Fancher have figured out how to turn a 30-year friendship and backgrounds in commercial and residential interior design into their dream jobs. O ur unique friendship, which has gone on so long, is a good part of our business dynamic, said Ms. Tr apani. W e both complement each other, Ms. Fancher added. It s a synergy that has helped the Stuart business attract a mix of clients, including homeowners, r esidents looking to redecor ate condos and commercial customers, such as bankers, managers of newly constructed office buildings, the Palm City Animal Ho spital, Vaccine and Gene I nstitute and Torrey Pines M olecular Institute. W ith me having a commercial and Leah having a r esidential background, it helps us to grow the business to a different level, Ms. Trapani said. When Southern Blinds and Interiors started 31 y ears ago, it specialized in vertical blinds and 1-inch mini blinds. T oday, the once-narrow product line includes cordless cellular shades, 2-inch blinds, faux wood options, solar shades that keep out sun and heat, but still allow access to views, and updated plantation shutters, which have become prominent in residential communities. The products are made in the United States, as part of the entrepreneurs efforts to support the local and national economy. The store is also a distributor of H unter Douglas window dressings. W e have everything from the Key West style of the plantation shutters to the elegance of the privacy sheer, Ms. Trapani The business has evolved quite a bit and had kept up with the latest design trends. At the woman-owned business, the entrepreneurs also take control of the design and installation process, working with an installer who deals exclusively with Southern Blinds and Interiors. O ur installer will have our clients best interest at heart because he works only for us, and everyone wants the process to go as smoothly as possible from beginning to end, Ms. F ancher said. B eginning with a free consultation, clients get the benefit of a team with a vast and varied experience in interior design. Ms. Trapanis background working with stone, tile and granite interiors means she assists clients with remodeling bathrooms, kitchens and other projects, plus helping supply stone, tile, paint, decorative pieces and other materials for the job. H er partner is skilled at guiding clients to select quality products and helping execute and create their dream interiors. And thats what the women said they do best. They carry high-quality products and personally ensure proper installation that meets each clients needs as part of an overall goal to bring style and function to each room and window. Along the way, theyve helped improve the lives of several Martin County residents, donating to causes that benefit the Childrens cancer Society, the Outstanding People United to S ing chorus and Martin C ounty High School.

Wal-Marts are now global and theyre both praised and vilified. Theyre vilified by the small businesses and/or inefficient businesses they drove out of the market and theyre praised by consumers for their low prices. S am accomplished what he did by building a retail machine that was more efficient than his competitors. He mastered the science and art of purchasing quality merchandise in volume domestically or abroad and tight inventory control, which allowed him to charge the lowest prices. He built a reputation for quality, low price and integrity that is unmatched by any other r etailer. The reason Wal-Mart sells every other product except new cars is because of state franchise laws which protect car dealers from competition like WalMar t. In all 50 states, car dealers have been able to lobby their legislators over the years to pass state laws which give them an exclusive market territory. In F lorida, for example, a manufacturer may not add another dealer of the same make within a 9-mile r adius of the existing dealer. If they attempt to do this, the dealer can appeal this to the Florida D epartment of Motor V ehicles where a hearing judge makes the decision. The franchise laws also tell manufacturers who can retail cars. A manufacturer is prohibited from doing so. A car retailer must have a factory franchise agreement. The results of all these archaic laws put a r eal damper on competition in the retail car business. It allows inefficient car dealers to remain in business and allows the haggling, horse-trading system of purchasing cars that dates back to the 19th century to perpetuate. P olls of consumers r egularly rank their car buying and servicing experiences as among the worst of any other product or service. Car dealers are consistently ranked in the bottom three of all professions, along with lawyers and politicians. If we learned anything from the explosive growth of WalMar t, it is that consumers want the best price and a pleasant buying experience. A consumer doesnt want to go into a retail store, buy a product and find out the next day that his next door neighbor bought the same car for hundreds or thousands of less from the same store. Y et this is standard operating procedure for car dealers. The shrewd, educated, sophisticated negotiator can buy a car very close to dealer cost. The very young, very old, uneducated, naive or those not schooled at speaking English are likely to pay a lot more for the exact same car from that same dealer. I have a hunch that N eanderthal car dealers are nearing extinction. The American consumer is getting smarter and more sophisticated every day. This new, enlightened consumer wont put up much longer with the old way of buying cars. If a customer walked into M acys and asked the salesman for the price of a S amsung big screen TV and the salesman responded, How much are you willing to pay? or I cant give you a price unless yo u re willing to buy today, that consumer would scream bloody murder. But this exact thing happens as standard operating procedure in most car dealerships today. The American consumer is also the American voter and I have a feeling that we are about to see some new, pro-consumer legislation with respect to how cars are sold in America. S tate franchise laws that help to preserve the status quo will be examined closely. An example of these laws surfaced recently when a startup company, T rueCar .com, offered a new and r efreshing way for car buyers to actually find out what the lowest price in their market was. This lasted about a year and T rueCar.com was growing like wildfire. I wrote two columns about T rueCar.com. You can read them both on my blog, www.EarlStewartOnC ars.com. The first was entitled Will T rueCar.com change the way you buy a car in 21st century? I wrote this before the intense pressure from car dealers, manufacturers, and state legislators caused T rueCar.com to cave in and redesign their unique, consumer-friendly, lowest price system.

taxable income. If yo u re lucky, your employer will even match some of your contributions. C onsequently, its almost always a good idea to put in as much as you can afford into your 401(k), up to the contribution limits, and to boost your contributions every time your salary increases. In 2012, you can contribute up to $17,000 to your 401(k), plus an additional $5,500 if youre 50 or older. Ev en if you participate in a 401(k) plan, you can probably also contribute to a traditional IRA. Your earnings have the potential to grow tax-deferred and y our contributions may be tax deductible, depending on your income level. In 2012, you can put in up to $5,000 to a traditional IRA, or $6,000 if youre 50 or older. (If you meet certain income guidelines, you might be eligible to contribute to a Roth IRA, which offers tax-free earnings, provided you dont start taking withdrawals until yo u re 59-1/2 and youve had your account at least five years.)

Known as Club Ed, the program will provide adolescents with skills for success, an opportunity to learn v aluable social, communication and independent living skills, designed in a creative, supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. H elping People Succeeds licensed therapists and volunteer peer models staff the program. Club Ed will help prepare participants for quality social interactions through a curriculum to include interactive and engaging group discussions and games, social stories, video modeling and supervised practice in community outings, said P almer Holliday, Club Ed director. The program meets each W ednesday from 45:30 p .m. at Helping People Succeeds offices at 1100 S.E. F ederal Highway in Stuart. C ost is $20 per person and runs for 12 weeks. There is no fee for participants with Medicaid or Florida H ealthy Kids program. In addition, scholarships and sliding-scale fees may be applied. Club Ed is hosted and funded by Helping People S ucceed. Part of the funding comes from the nonprofit agencys Art for Autism silent auction coordinated at the 2011 Taste of Success international wine tasting. A second silent auction, which includes paintings from area artists and craft projects from Helping People Succeeds adults with disabilities, will be organized on Saturday, April 14 at H arbour Bay Plaza in S ewalls Point.

In its press material, the group describes itself as a faith-based, non-profit organization committed to caring for victims of human trafficking and ending child slavery in the U nited States. W e treat each child as a survivor, not a victim. They are empowered to overcome their past, Mr. Thomas said. He said children at the safe house would get a loving environment, learn job skills and coping mechanisms and get emotional support to overcome the abuse they suffered. M ost survivors just want to forget. Every time they share their story they have to relive it, he said. B ut advocates say human smuggling is on the r ise, with New York, California and Florida reporting the biggest surges. P erpetrators force minors into prostitution, child pornography and forced labor, among other abuses. I was just completely blown away that this happened in a modern world, Mr. Thomas sad. He said the group is working with 30 other organizations on the Treasure Coast to help victims. SafeF rom page A1 The event generated more than $220,000 with all proceeds benefiting the animals and their needs. Mo re than 225 people attended the event and were able to watch the entire game right down to Tom Br adys final desperation pass on 10, 55-inch televisions that were spread throughout the events stadium tent at Eventmakers in Stuart. B efore the game started, patrons bid on dozens of silent auction items in the tailgate tent, while they enjoyed hors doeuvres and a buffet-style dinner later in the evening. Many guests posed for pictures with M iami Dolphins cheerleaders, who also signed autographs. S upporters also bid on live auction items, including a private, five-bedroom ski home on the slopes of Br eckenridge, Colo., for four nights; a private jet for six to the Bahamas for a threenight stay at the Bahamas B each Club; a Grain Parker tote in Tiffany blue from T iffany & Co.s just released new line; exclusive golf packages including foursomes at the Floridian with lunch; spa packages including Canyon Ranch in Miami; dinner parties prepared by exclusive chefs, including Ia n s Tropical Grill hosted at home; an assortment of jewelry and accessories and sports fanatic finds, including autographed items from D an Marino, Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus.

I would go to great lengths to steer clear of it. After a few years of teaching, I was introduced to a program called conscious discipline. Conscious discipline is a comprehensive, social and emotional intelligence classroom management program that empowers both teachers and students (Bailey 2000). I nstead of ignoring conflict, I have learned to notice conflict and work through it. Conscious disciple has taught me how to embrace it. I have learned that there is no perfect way to handle conflict. Now whenever I see conflict I say to myself, Br ing it on. In the morning, my students start their day off in learning centers. Most people would come into the r oom and think, Wow, I see a bunch of young children playing. In actuality, there is a truckload of learning taking place; not only academic learning, but also socialemotional learning. I love this time of day because it is loaded with conflicts, or as I have grown to realize, these conflicts are opportunities for me to teach the children how to work through stressful situations. At Th e Pine School, children are entrenched in conscious discipline at a very young age. Developmentally, children at this y oung age instinctively will r eact to conflict by using some form of aggression, either verbal or physical. By using conscious discipline as a teaching tool, I have seen children as young as 2 and 3 years old be able to self-regulate their emotions, while at the same time, use an assertive voice to let their wants and needs be known to others. Through conscious discipline, there has been a shift with my students. T ime after time I see my students choosing to help other children in the classroom. When they see a friend who is feeling sad or mad they are independently wishing them well. When they see someone who needs help, they are there to offer help. The most amazing thing to see is when a child who is dealing with conflict and willingly allows me to help them. I truly believe this willingness comes from a sense of belonging and safety which in turn has come from the use of conscious discipline. I have seen, through conscious discipline, that when children first feel safe and connected, they are then willing to go anywhere with me academically. They are willing to trust me and let me teach them anything I need to teach them. Fr an Churchey-Martinez is an early learning teacher at The Pine School.

H istorical Map Club: A one sold in his store. He demanded she return his charger and pursued her. In the end, she threw it out the car window. When confronted by S tuart police, the woman insisted it was a mistake, as she had put the wrong charger in the box. What she couldnt explain when confronted was why she got to her car and frantically called for boyfriend to return, instead of just opening the door getting the right charger and handing it to the clerk,Not understanding her jobA Fort Pierce woman who worked at a business in J ensen Beach may not have understood her job. It was to collect money for items that people purchased. B ut instead, she chose to give away the merchandise for free. S he was observed taking merchandise, voiding it and then handing it to customers who had not paid for it. It might be a nice gesture, but perhaps she didnt consider the economics of it. The business gets money to pay her salary by selling those items. If the business collects no money, she ends up without a job.L eaving evidence behindA Fort Pierce man was r ather startled when he arrived home and found a female in his house. She fled and he discovered she had taken $150, a paycheck for $228 and other items. The man didnt know the woman, but he discovered she left a Metro PCS cell phone behind. An officer took the cell phone to a Metro PCS business and learned the identity of the owner. As it turned out, the woman had been in the store shortly before he arrived. She bought a new phone. When confronted later, the woman denied everything, but changed her story after being told she had left her cell phone there. The woman has an extensive criminal record dating back to 1994, when she was charged with burglary. It would seem that after being a criminal for more than 17 years she would know not to leave a cell phone at a residence she burglarized. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 24, 2012 Martin County A13 015012Located in the heart of Brevard County the newly renovated Holiday Inn Melbourne Viera Conference Center Hotel is the only full-service hotel in Melbourne, Florida.

If you click Save As and look at the File Type or Format pull-down menu on the S ave As box that pops up, yo u ll see you have the ability to save your document in many different formats. This puts the control of the file type in y our hands. The same thing applies when you are trying to send a picture. Make sure that its a file that is saved in a format that your intended r ecipient can open. Usually a .jpg (jpeg) is a safe bet. M ost peoples familiarity with email attachments ends with the occasional picture, but once the idea of transferring files that way becomes clear, a lot of possibilities present themselves. He re are the steps for sending a file: F irst, you need to know where the file you want to send is located on your computer, and exactly what its called. So, if you have a document you want to send, save it and pay attention to the file name and the name of the folder that its saved in. Then, when you have y our e-mail program open, click New Message and begin to compose your message. Enter the recipients e-mail address, a comment in the subject field and then click the A ttach button (which is usually represented by a paperclip icon). N ext, your computer will give you some options. You want to indicate the computer that you are attaching a file to. Click the appropriate button and then navigate to the location on your hard drive where the file that you want to send r esides. (Look in the same folder where you saved it in, and then click on the name of the file to select it.) Click OK, and the file name will be listed as an attachment. Y ou can even send multiple files by repeating the procedure. But remember that large files do not always do well, so you want to keep the attachments small in size.

C onchy Joes Seafood R estaurant and Bar doesnt have to imitate this tropical scene. It is a true example of Old Florida and Ca r ibbean flavors that others try to emulate. This restaurant, located on scenic Indian River Dr ive in Jensen Beach, is a little spot of paradise in more ways than one. I ts menu resembles one straight off the finer Ca r ibbean tables, boasting fresh shellfish and seafood prepared simply and colorfully. I ts sauted seafood Tr inidad, for instance, serves jumbo shrimp, dolphin and grouper with diced tomatoes, sherry and a Caribbean cream sauce over vermicelli. And the Bahamian-cracked conch is hand-tenderized, breaded and lightly fried. W ith golden conch fritters from Harbor Island, fish in a bag, coconut-fried shrimp, and conch salad with peppers, onions, celery and fresh lime juice, the local stop is not unlike its island counterparts. When I first moved to the Treasure Coast, C onchy Joes Seafood R estaurant and Bar was one of my favorite haunts because it reminded me of Arawak Cay, a wildly popular restaurant on Cable B each in the Bahamas. That Bahamian restaurant served an amazing conch chowder, and so does C onchy Joes. I f you havent had it, I advise you to try it. Id put ours up against any chowder, said Frederic Fritz Ay re s, administrator. C ustomers rave about it every day. C ulinary industry insiders took notice, too. The local restaurant got national accolades when both Gourmet and Bon A pptit magazines r equested the recipe for its homemade soup. B ut its not just the soup and seafood that are good here. The kitchen is equipped with a brick fireplace fueled with oak logs trucked in by the semiload. Thats why the steaks, chicken and ribs cooked ov er the wood-burning grill have the unique distinctive flavor that has become the restaurants trademark. Sl o w-roasted prime rib has become so popular it is now on the menu every day. And the barbecue boar ribs are so tender the meat falls off the bone. B ut its the works burger, a 1950s-style sandwich, that been a favorite for decades. It has its own w ell-deserved and comic intro on the menu, and it turned out to be as delicious as expected. It s hard to pick a favorite from the list of tropical drinks, grouper Marsala, broiled seafood combo, filet mignon, and sandwich and salad choices. After about 33 years in business, President Fred Ay r es seems to have perfected the art of rustic island-style dining. In 1979 he opened C onchy Joes in downtown We st Palm Beach and moved it Jensen Beach in 1983. Seven years ago, he started a renovation that took about four years to complete. N ewly renovated, C onchy Joes, with its back jetty, thatched roofs, exposed ceiling beams, colorful plantation shutters and open patios, still maintains the barefoot-atthe-beach feel. And as the long-time o wner prepares to retire, Mr. Ayres is grooming his son, Fritz, to run the business with the help of a y oung creative staff. Among them are skilled bartenders Rebecca STAR SCOPESJames Tucker W eek of 2-24-2012 Aries-March 21-April 19Life is looking positive for you, Aries. Now is the time to launch new projects.

TREASURE COAST W ells Fargo Bank has contributed $2,500 to Deaf and Ha rd of Hearing Services of the Treasure Coast, which will be used to promote childrens hearing health through the dangerous decibels program. The donation will help DHHS to bring the turn off dangerous decibels program to many Treasure C oast elementary classr ooms. TODD is a demonstration mannequin who listens to childrens MP3 players and tells them how loud they are. TODD was donated by Macys and has been retrofitted with prosthetic ears and a sound meter. T ODD is part of an overall program called dangerous decibels, designed to teach children the dangers of noise induced hearing loss and responsible use of MP3 players. D eaf and Hard of Hearing Ser vices is a nonprofit Treasure Coast community r esource supported in part by the United Ways, Wells Fa rg o, P ublix Supermarket Charities and private donations. DHHS has been providing services to the estimated 98,000 individuals with hearing loss in the community since 1988. W ells Fargo & Company is a nationwide, diversified, community-based financial services company with $1.3 trillion in assets. F or more information, please visit: www.wellsfargo.com/about/csr. How about this w eather? If you are a summer fisher I know you love it. Winter fishing, well lets just say y ou are getting up early. O ur blues and pompano like the cooler water, so if y ou are going to find them be there early, the coolest part of the day. If you were looking for some tarpon or snook action they have moved in to the late morning time slot. It may be our cooler months, but the weatherman sure has this right, at least I think so. S eas settled and if you we re looking for dolphin they were in that 60 feet to 100 feet. Not big fish but nice 15-pound fish. Live bait or trolled they were up close. Pay attention to the color lines. That is where they were located. But as nice as the seas are, flat no turbity, I would be looking for the cobia in 30 feet and I might add the sail were also in that 30 feet. H ad a lot of surf anglers telling me about the sail jumping and it was not just one area. I had calls from many locations about sails, but Cobia is my target and I would have to live bait behind the boat and would be bumping along paying attention with my pitch r ods in the holder rigged and ready. Sharks, turtles, r ays and bait schools will have the cobia with them; pay attention. B ottom fishing for lanes, mangroves and all the usual suspects has been excellent, so if you are out there drifting pay attention, cobia. Schools of big jacks and a nice gathering of tarpon around the power plant if y ou want to test your warranty on that new reel. Su rf anglers if it is blues and pompano that start y our heart, fish early, watch that sun come up. You need the coolest part of the day. It is all about water temperature. These fish like the cooler water. As the sun r ises, so will the water temps. Cut baits for the blues and clams and sand fleas for the pomps. Yes, y ou need that long cast. Lots of whiting on a piece of shrimp and if there are that many whiting there will be plenty of snook in the trough, so you make the call. Yes you could use a little whiting or that D.O.A deep running bait buster to find one, just fish the trough where you just caught that whiting. It is summer why would they not be there? Tr out fishing continues to be excellent throughout the area, a few reds closer to the inlets and yes, the pompano have been in the area with the reds but early, cooler water. No r ain so that North Fo rk north of the boat r amp off Port St. Lucie B oulevard has a lot of fish: tarpon, reds, trout and jacks to name a few, even a few pomp's made the list. If you have not fished that area in a while check it out, worth the ride. S nook, wait for the sun to go down and pick a bridge. The water has to be moving and you have to slide your bait on the bottom, bait stops set the hook, watch that slot. T ill next week, I sure like the summer. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach. Enjoy summer-like temps while they last FISHINGHENRY CAIMATTO F riday, February 24, 2012 B8 Martin CountyHometown News 761859 BACK PAIN?Treasure Coast to receive the free report mailed to you today that exposes how many Treasure Coast residents are eliminating back pain, call this tollfree, 24 hour recorded message at 1-800-864-4991. 682874 017914 Bank promotes childrens hearing health F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com

2MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG A taxing subject There are several memorable lines from Gone with the Wind, but one of my favorites is Death, taxes and childbirth! Theres never any convenient time for any of them. That is true, but at this time of year, while we may avoid death and childbirth, taxes are with us. This months F orever Young theme is financial and tax planning. Its a subject that makes a lot of us nervous. To ease some of the panic, the issue contains interviews with financial advisers and certified public accountants who have tips on how to plan for r etirement and have the type of retirement youve dreamed of. My father, Alfred Koppel, of Stuart, is 93. He has been a CPA for nearly 70 years and still has a client or two. In fact, he w ent to the IRS office in Port St. Lucie a few months ago for a client audit. He has seen a lot of changes in the industry and the practice of accounting in the days before computers and tax programs. B efore I got certified, I worked as an assistant bookkeeper, he said. I decided I might as well get a job as an accountant. I had two introductory courses under my belt. I answered a few questions and got a job as an accountant. In those days, you had to have a college degree and a years experience before you could complete all four parts of the CPA exam, which included theory, law, auditing and problems. D ad wanted to start his own practice, but didnt know where to begin. I hadnt the faintest idea of how to go into business, he said. I went from one job to another. I would pick up an account from someone I knew and eventually got a part-time job and had private clients. One of his first clients was a Russian migr.

3MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Making a good foundation for retirement STUART When youre planning for retirement, its important to take the long view. Thats what Jamie Chapogas, an accredited asset management specialist, tells her clients. W e look at cash flow-money in and money out, she said. For most people, the money in is a paycheck. Then we look at what they spend. Its important to be honest and not pretend. We look at what they own, including a vehicle and primary residence and what they owe, including interest rate and years left on the loan. Then its time to plan. Often people want to pay off debts, but its important to save while youre paying them off, she said. Get in the habit of saving, however small. If the debts are high interest, try to get it paid off. If its the home, is it worth paying off? I f its the forever home, people want to know how to pay it off before they retire. You can make additional principal payments. If its not the forever home, why pay it off if youre not going to live in it and the interest rate is low? Ms. Chapogas said that it is important to calculate the cost of carrying the mortgage, but sometimes there is more involved than math. S ometimes we deal with emotions, she said. Everybody is different and everybodys situation is different. There isnt a cookie-cutter approach. In planning for retirement, people need to consider the sources of their income, including pensions, Social S ecurity and investments and their projected retirement expenses. I f they retire young and healthy, they have a lot of hours to fill, she said. There may be increased entertainment costs, and later on, medical costs. A lot of people in their 50s had children late in life and there may still be college expenses. Ms. Chapogas said that after the financial turmoil of the last few years, people want investments to be safe. A bank is federally insured. But you have to factor in inflation. In 10 years, yo u ll have less purchasing power. P eople are living into their 90s. You have to grow money at an effective r ate. Y ou need to earn a 5 percent average rate of return because inflation has averaged approximately three percent in the last 100 years. We have to dissect it for the client because theres a risk of being too conservative or too aggressive. It needs to be balanced. W omen have special concerns in planning for retirement. W omen own more small businesses than men and traditionally incorporate to lower salaries and reduce taxes, she said. That means less S ocial Security. W omen earn less than men because there is still a glass ceiling. The average woman is out of the workforce for 11 years for childrearing and that also means less Social Security and fewer years to save. Women also tend to live longer, and they have to prepare for that. Ms. Chapogas said that women need to protect, save and plan. I f you have dependents, you should have some form of insurance, she said. If youre 50 or older, you need to do long-term care planning for you and your spouse. Y ou should save for retirement. There are tax benefits to do so. You By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See PLANNING, Page 10 Jamie Chapogas 681126

4MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Planning key to comfortable retirement STUART When people turn 50, their thoughts often turn to retirement, even if it is years down the road. Michael Hartman, accredited investment fiduciary and financial consultant with Strategic Retirement Group in Stuart, sees clients like that all the time. The focus usually shifts from college planning to retirement planning, he said. Although retirement may be 10 to 20 y ears away, its not too early to begin planning. The first step is to set realistic goals. Thats the hardest one. P eople are used to living a certain life style. They need to set a goal of how much they need. Its usually 55 to 80 percent of income. In addition to calculating income from sources such as S ocial Security, savings and pensions, its important to think about costs, as well. O ne of the most important factors when you retire is health care costs, he said. Insurance costs increase dramatically until you are eligible for Medicare. If you want to retire before 65, you have to consider the cost of health care, dental and vision expenses. One of the most important things people should do before r etiring is to get rid of debt. T ackle as much debt as you can, he said. Trying to pay off y our home mortgage is a good idea. People feel better not By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See RETIREMENT, Page 12

5MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Make an investment in wellness STUART Stefanie Falkner is an advocate of investing in yourself. The group exercise coordinator for the Martin Health System fitness centers, she thinks that taking care of yourself brings a good return on the investment. I n 2012, when you get your tax r efund back, its time to invest in yourself as a way of preventive maintenance on your body, she said. Anything that jump-starts healthier habits is very important. Instead of spending that refund on a vacation or a new refrigerator, its far more important to make sure youre healthy, because y ou cant do anything for anyone else if yo u re not. The six health and fitness centers, spread out from Hobe Sound to St. L ucie West, are medically-based facilities that are open to the public. W e are certified to handle people from the hospital with cancer, diabetes, arthritis and heart problems, she said. W e also offer classes in yoga, Pilates, aquatics and water therapy, strength training and cardiovascular workouts. P ersonal trainers are available and you have to be a member. The centers are more concerned with finding the appropriate level of exercise for each person than using a one-sizefits-all approach. W e are big into easing into a regimen, Ms. Falkner said.

Center plans fashion fundraiser STUART Julie Miller began the Fl ow er Power fundraiser because the M eals on Wheels program made such a difference to her father. I t was the highlight of his day when the people came by, she said. They helped me and when he passed, I wanted to give back. Ms. Miller volunteered for the program. One day, when she read that funding was being cut, she came in and suggested a luncheon and fashion show as a fundraiser. She was told to go ahead and do it. I come from a production background and I figured out how much money I needed to do the events, she said. I called it Flower Power. I was working from home and sending out r equests for funding. I had met Alina R umble, the owner of Anchor Home H ealth. She called and agreed to be top sponsor. I jumped up and down. That first event was five years ago. This years Flower Power luncheon, fashion show and silent auction will take place on March 21 in the Langford Theatre at the New Kane Center in Stuart. Broadcaster Kelley Dunn of WPTV channel 5 will serve again as master of ceremonies. Sh e s our fashion commentator and loves the event, Ms. Miller said. We are so blessed. Each year, the event has grown. Even in the current economy, last year was our best year ever. The team pitches in, soliciting items for the silent auction. We use real people to model real clothes from local stores. There are working moms, r etired ladies, high school students and children. It runs the whole range. We have a good time. T oday, Julie Miller works at the Kane C enter as program development and r ental manager and still volunteers for M eals on Wheels. She is extremely proud of the success of Flower Power because of the help it gives those who need help. All of the proceeds of the event go to buying meals for seniors in need, she said. We have raised $123,000 that has gone to purchase nearly 15,000 meals. The Kane Center will also continue its Kane Cabaret on March 11, with a performance by the Irwin Solomon Tr io.

8MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Even hippies gotta worry about money eventually It was a little confusi ng for me to watch our peace and love generation morph into our parents. We had pledged to each other that we could make the planet a better place by avoiding the 9to-5 rat race that had ensnared our hapless parents. We vowed that the pursuit of the almighty dollar would never be a part of our future. N ot us. We would spend our time hanging out with friends, smoking Mother N ature and listening to cool music. It was all to be so idyllic and pastoral. O ur very own take on living the good life. Then it happened. Z AP! R eality hit like a lightning bolt. C ollege money dried up and our parents cut us loose. We had no choice but to take our two years of Poly-Sci or our philosophy degree out into the workplace and try to turn them into cash. It proved to be very difficult. Y et, when we did go to work, we excelled like none before us. The post war generation authored an explosion of new and exciting ideas that carry us till this day. Technology would be our gift to the world. While we were doing that, however, we ignored one basic fact: Our country was built on hard work. The kids who w ent to San Francisco with flowers in their hair had no interest in doing the mundane labor that carries this great nation. Ours was a larger, more ethereal (and less physically demanding) calling. At least that was how we perceived it. As for me, I found out that once I married my little hippy girlfriend a whole lot of responsibility was part of the deal. When the kids came along forget about it I had no choice but to immerse myself in the work that would provide the cash to sustain us. It was amazing how fast my ideals began to conform. My peace sign quickly turned into a Mercedes emblem. In my younger days I had searched for the perfect high, but now my goal was the perfect mutual fund. The horror! The changes were insidious. As the years passed I didnt even realize that my interest in the Rolling Stones had been replaced by my worry over kidney stones. I had started out protesting against the man and now I was the man. R unning a business, raising children, paying a mortgage and fretting about my federal income taxes. When I looked into the mirror I could no longer see the long-haired kid who lounged away his days playing harmonica in the park at Haight Ashbury. B ack then I had been concerned about mans injustice to man, but now my problems were personal. I had gone from scoring killer weed to buying w eed killer.

can borrow for college, but not for r etirement. Dont take your retirement funds to pay for college if you can avoid it. F inally, she said, you need estate planning. I t s not just for the rich and famous, she said. You need a will, a health care directive for medical decisions and a power-of-attorney for financial decisions. F or many people, deciding when they can afford to retire and how much they will have can be overwhelming.

We liked each other and one day I got a call from him. He wanted to build houses on post-World War II Long Island because the construction of the Whitestone Bridge made it easier to get there. He wanted me to be his accountant. Fr om then on, my father built a practice on Long Island, made up of an interesting mix of Europeans and Americans. There was even a Russian princess. My father worked from home at a time when most of my friends fathers traveled into The City on the Long Island Railroad every day. A ccounting, he said, was very different. When you prepared a tax return in those days, there might be 100 calculations to finish. If there was one mistake, you had to do the whole thing ov er because every calculation changed. It was all done with a pencil, a good eraser, a song and a prayer. A tax re turn took one to two hours, but if you had to redo it, it took you four. My mother checked the math, going over each calculation. There were so many that you were bound to make a mistake, my father said. Even the calculators were primitive and it was easy to make a mistake. M ost of the time, I did it without a calculator. When I first started, I added every long column by hand. You never knew if you picked up the right numbers. Sometimes you had to do it over three or four times. It was a lot of extra hard, dirty work. My father noted that both the tax code and audits have become much more complicated. Theres no question the tax code has become more complex, he said. I m not sure if it would have become so complex without computers and calculators because it wouldnt be possible to do it. As computations have become easier to make, the tax codes have become more complicated. T ax audits have also become more complicated. Y ears ago, it was a relaxed situation, he said. The IRS agent came, he knew his stuff and was able to do the job. He would come in, relax, put his briefcase down, work, wed go out to lunch, have a cocktail, come back and finish. He came up with the tax and it was all done that way. The average r eturn did not take very long. I t slowly became more difficult to get an audit done in a short period. The agent has audit procedures and he has to check off everything before he gets finished. They can make no decisions on their own. Theyre not allowed to go out to lunch, but it takes a day or two instead of three to four hours to come up with the same amount of tax. At the end of the interview with my father, my mother, Lillian, got on the phone and told a story that seemed to encapsulate how different things are today. My fathers first cousin, also named Alfred, was also preparing to become a CPA. He was doing his year of work experience to qualify and the firm was not paying him because they knew they had a captive audience. He finally asked for subway fare, then 5 cents each way. The firm fired him.

o wing a mortgage. It is a major debt in most budgets. It makes sense when theyre working to have a fixed mortgage and write off the interest. When they r etire, having it paid off can add peace of mind. What helped get the economy into the state its in is too many people borro wing too much. They couldnt pay for it. At 50 to 60, you may not have time to make up for mistakes. Another thing people can do at 50 to prepare for retirement is to contribute to a qualified retirement account such as an IRA or 401(k) plan. Y ou can catch up on contributions when you turn 50 or make additional contributions, Mr. Hartman said. As y ou near retirement, the IRS allows you to contribute more. You cant make catch up contributions prior to 50. M any people want help in planning for retirement and seek guidance from a financial adviser. Picking an adviser is like picking a doctor, Mr. Hartman said. You have to have a certain level of trust. A referral from a family member or friend is a good start. Its good to interview the person. Reputable firms will give you a free consultation to meet the adviser and the team. How an adviser is compensated and what credentials they have are important considerations. O ur fee schedule is always disclosed and how we get paid is disclosed, Mr. Har tman said. Clients know the cost up front and the level of service. I t s also important to find out where they went to school and if they are secur ities registered. A Series 7 registration allows you to sell stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Some registrations dont allow you to use all investments. A valuable website is www.finra.org. You can check out if the financial adviser or broker is securities registered and if any complaints have been lodged. If you have selected an adviser, you should remember that the portfolio he or she assembles is for your benefit. O ur job is to help design a portfolio for the investor based on age, risk tolerance and time horizon, Mr. Hartman said. That gets more critical as y ou get older as y ou dont have time to make a mistake. I t goes back to having a trusted r elationship with r egular reviews and meetings. There needs to be time to evaluate lifechanging events, whether the goals are still the same and if new financial concerns have arisen. Then we decide how to tackle them to accomplish the goals.

W ith my kids wanting to attend college I had to cut corners. The guy who wanted to change the world was r educed to hunting down the best early bird special. Most of the time I r emained optimistic that my financial situation would change for the better and I would soon be back on my feet. In r eality, if I didnt come up with a car payment I would be on my feet soon enough. As tight as money was I remember how shot down I was when the girl at M cDonalds gave me a senior discount on a cup of coffee. Me? A senior? I had to bite my tongue to keep from telling her where to put that discount. I was only 55. Still, once I calmed down, I had to admit that my dreams of a smooth-running BMW had now become dreams of a smooth-running BM. Now when I heard the name Grateful Dead, an image of Dr. Ke vorkian would pop into my mind. It was just awful. Now, as a semi-retired individual, I am happy to receive a check from the same government that I once wanted to overthrow. My savings receive almost no interest, and I pay for M edicare that will probably not even be there when I need it. Instead of acid I need an antacid. My K-E-G is now an E-K-G. B ut you know, life these days is pretty good. My beautiful hippie wife Lana is still with me and we ra ised two great kids. We are OK financially and I have plenty of time to reflect on the journey that I traveled. Becoming my parents was not nearly as traumatic as I once believed. Somewhere deep inside I know that if I had to, I could still spend my days in the park living off R amen Noodles and peanut butter. I just hope that all of my brothers and sisters survived the trip as well as I did.

Estimates vary, but numerous surveys have indicated the average American household has more than $10,000 in credit card debt, a figure that doesn't include debt such as mortgages, car loans or student loans. In Canada, an early 2011 report from the Vanier Institute of the Family suggested the debt-to-income ratio for the average Canadian family was 150 percent, which means that for every $1,000 a Canadian family earns, it ow es $1,500. What these figures illustrate is that even the most financially savvy debtor may be in a precarious position, one that, should an unforeseen layoff or medical emergency occur, could turn disastrous in a relatively short period of time. As a result, an individual's ability to manage personal debt is of paramount importance, and the following tips can help men and women walking a financial tightrope address their debt in a way that might help them get back on their financial feet. Eliminate bad debt. Not all debt is bad, but credit card debt is rarely good. Card holders with substantial credit card debt should contact their companies as soon as possible to see if the company is willing to work with them on a repayment plan. This is more prudent than declaring for bankruptcy, which will negatively impact an individual's credit score for y ears to come. Companies are often willing to work with card holders about repayment plans that make it easier to pay down debt. But once an agreement is made, card holders must make meeting the terms of that agreement their top priority.metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News See DEBT, 17 metrocreativecreativeconnectionIndividuals with substantial credit card debt might be able to reduce the stress of paying down that debt by calling their credit card company and working out a new repayment plan.

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, year, or 10 y ears from now? The answer is a guaranteed NO. So starting today, document everything before you get to far down the road and have to backtrack.. This will help your research tremendously in the future, when y ou 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 remember 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 w ell be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with exactly 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 B eth. 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, 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 possible. 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. T ombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A re lative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name.16MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Document your sources in tracing your roots GENEALOGYB RENDA K.

17MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Stop accruing bad debt. Using a card wisely is the key to avoiding unnecessary debt. When using credit cards, do not use them for everyday purchases like groceries or movie tickets. This type of credit card usage is habit forming, and it's very easy for card holders to quickly amass a large balance on their accounts for items they could just as easily could have paid for with cash. Keep in mind interest will be charged on all balances not paid in full each month, so don't make that cup of coffee or that pair of movie tickets cost even more by adding interest to the overall cost. Pay down high-interest debts first. Always work to pay down high-interest debt first while paying a little more than the minimum on low-interest debt. If a car loan came with an especially high interest rate (hint: borrowers whose down payment on a car loan was small or nonexistent are likely saddled with a high-interest loan), work to pay down that balance as much as possible. Something as simple as paying an extra $25 per month on a $200 per month car payment can reduce the length of time it takes to pay off that loan considerably. Once a high-interest debt is paid off, move on to the debt with the next highest interest rate. Stop paying the bare minimum. P aying just the minimum will barely cover the interest. That means the principal will hardly disappear, and the debt will be a seemingly impossible obstacle to overcome. Pay more than the bare minimum each month, even if it means making sacrifices elsewhere. Avoid borrowing from Peter to pay P aul. Transferring balances from a high-interest card to a low-interest card is one thing, but borrowing against property or a retirement savings account is playing with fire. W ith regards to borrowing against a 401(k), the penalty to do so, not to mention the extra income tax such a withdrawal will accrue, before retirement is substantial. In addition, the v alue of those retirement savings will suffer considerably as the interest earned will be on that much less money until the full amount is paid back to the account..DebtF rom page 14 This makes a strong case for thoroughly researching each person and finding as many sources as you can. 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 y ou have personally verified that it is correct. Never download someone elses information into your work until you document it and are satisfied that the preponderance of evidence shows that this data belongs to your family. Trying to sort out unrelated individuals, much less whole family groups, from your database, is a nightmare.

As important as such savings can be, many workers are deciding to delay their retirements. As much as men and women envision retiring to a faraway seaside villa for their golden years, such r etirements are not terribly common, and many older workers have begun to r ecognize the economic and social benefits of delaying retirement. Those undecided about when they want to say goodbye to the office should consider the following benefits to delaying r etirement. Fewer years to worry about financing your lifestyle. Thanks to advancements in medicine and more and more people living healthier lifestyles, men and women are now living longer than in years past. While living longer, healthier lives is a plus, it does have an effect on retirement. Because people can now expect to live longer, they must ensure their money lasts long enough. By delaying retirement, men and women will have fewer retirement years to finance. More chances to save money. It might be your dream to retire early, but y ou could be doing yourself a great disservice by ending your career prematurely. Men and women at or near the end of their careers are often making more money than they ever have, which enables them to save more than they have in the past, especially if children are full grown and supporting themselves. Take advantage of these high-salary years, even if it means working an extra few years. If you do, when you retire you could have substantially more in savings than you would have had you retired early. Stay socially active. In addition to economic benefits, delaying retirement has social benefits as well. Many people get the bulk of their social interaction with colleagues and coworkers. When men and women retire, these opportunities for social interaction can dwindle r ather quickly, and it's not uncommon for retirees to battle feelings of isolation. D elaying retirement allows you to easily maintain contact with friends and colleagues, and can lead to a better quality of life. The chance to give back. Many older professionals view retirement as being put out to pasture, where their years or experience aren't utilized. However, individuals who delay retirement can use their extra years around the office as an opportunity to leave a legacy for the next generation. This is something professionals find especially valuable as their retirement draws nearer and they want to leave a lasting mark, be it on their company, within their industry or in the community in which their company operates. Delaying retirement provides more time to build this legacy, and can create a greater sense of fulfillment when men and women do decide to retire. D elaying retirement is growing increasingly popular. Men and women often see it as a chance to build a bigger nest egg and leave a more lasting legacy within their company and community. metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown NewsDelaying retirement is growing increasingly popular.

He would not disclose the propertys location, citing the importance of secrecy in safeguarding the victims and caretakers, but said the house is on the Treasure Coast and sits on plenty of land.

and worked in public service about 40 years, said he wanted to give voters a choice of local candidate. I think I could be someone they could feel comfortable having represent them in Washington and showing concern for their problems and their issues, he said. Re p. W est, a Tea Party favorite who now represents District 22, has a war chest of nearly $5.9 million. Hi s campaign did not comment on the sheriffs entry into the race. B ut when he spoke to H ometown News earlier in the month, political pundits had him pegged as the only R epublican candidate whod run for the district. B ut the Congressman said he was leaving little to chance. M eanwhile, Sheriff Crowder, a moderate Republican, said he offered voters a v oice against the rising tide of combative politics that we v e been seeing. I think I have a cooperative demeanor that can move things forward, instead of perpetuating this gridlock that seems to be tying things up in Congress, he said. As for his opponent in the R epublican race, Sheriff Crowde r said, I have no problems with Congressman West. I admire his military career and his willingness to come back to serve. (My decision to run) is not about him. I feel someone from our district needs to r epresent our district. H is campaign will focus on creating jobs, strengthening the economy, protecting the environment and maintaining the r egions infrastructure. Mr. Crowder has been Ma r tin Countys sheriff for 20 years and a law enforcement veteran for 48. His current term ends Jan. 7, 2013. Last March he announced he would not r un for reelection. T wo candidates have declared their intention to r un for sheriff. Rep. William Sn y der, a former Martin C ounty Sheriffs major, who once faced off with Sheriff Cro w der for the top law enforcement job, is a candidate. Also in the running is Ma j. J ohn Pietruszewski, a 28-year veteran in the Martin County Sheriffs Office. S heriff Crowder said he plans to complete his term, but might have to resign a few days early if elected to C ongress. D espite the outcome of the Republican primary, one Democratic contender has already entered the race for the proposed district. Fo rt Lauderdale businessman Patrick Murphy has r aised $1.4 million running a campaign that pits him as the alternative to Rep. West. One of his key messages: stop the Tea Party darling, his campaign said. F riday, February 24, 2012 A2 Martin County Hometown News 761857 Car Accident?

Then the man told Mr. Po r ter and the victim that he wanted them to each give him money that he would hold as part of a truth test, the report said. Mr. Porter went into a bank, came out with $8,000 and gave it to the other suspect, the report said. F ollowing that, the victim w ent into the bank, withdrew $10,000 and gave it to the first suspect, the report said. Afterward, both suspects left and the victim never r eceived the $100,000 to give to the church, he reported.

Wo r kers with the Norfolk Dr edging Company of Virginia have started fulfilling the $6.4 million contract from the Martin County board of commissioners to r emove 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet. That project requires them to assemble 25,000 feet of pipeline to move the excav ated material from the channel and impoundment basin to the beach in the Ho be Sound Wildlife Refuge, said Gabriella Ferraro, a spokeswoman for the commissioners. Dur ing assembly, the pipeline will be floating on the waters surface, said Ms. F erraro, who added that most of the work will take place on land. B uoys will clearly mark the location of the floating pipeline. Once complete, the pipeline will be submerged and will run along the bottom of the channel. Dr edging is set to start the first week of March, and officials expect the project to last until the end of April, in time for turtle nesting season. In the meantime, they advise boaters to drive carefully and observe all navigation aids. C ontractors will make every effort to minimize impacts to boaters. At no time will access to the inlet be blocked, Ms. Ferraro said. Officials said the project will help make the inlet safer for travel by removing sand buildup caused by the natur al flow of water moving from north to south. This shoaling or build up creates navigational obstructions and limits the use of the inlet as Martin Countys only outlet to the ocean.Moms to model spring fashions at luncheonMARTIN COUNTY Local mothers will model the latest fashions from C ache/Treasure Coast Mall at the Marys Shelter second annual fashion show and luncheon on Feb. 28 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart. H osted by WPTV 5 news anchor Kelley Dunn, the signature event will support r esidential services and programs for homeless pregnant women and their babies. S tepping into an exciting and colorful spring collection from Cache will be guest models and mothers Kimberly Blazie, Diana Eaton, M ichelle Mackey, Amy Rainis and Angela Trybul. W e re looking forward to a fun-filled afternoon of stylish fashion, networking and r aising awareness of the lifesaving work that Marys Shelter is doing to help young mothers and babies in our community, said Ms. Trybul, a Stuart mother of three who serves on the event committee and recruited fellow moms to model in the show. W e are delighted to partner with Cache/Treasure C oast Mall as this years fashion sponsor, said Angela Lowe, executive director of Ma ry s S helter. I t is especially exciting to see the involvement of new volunteers, mothers coming together to support mothers-to-be, which is at the heart of the Marys Shelter program and our commitment to prepare women with newborns for independent living and a vision of hope for the future through empowerment, education and training.

The resulting profile from W ashington matched Mr. Ca r denas, who was located and arrested by deputies, she said. The woman reported during the early morning hours of Jan. 27 she awoke and saw a man standing in her bedroom doorway, the arrest affidavit said. The woman said when she got out of bed, the man grabbed her, pushed her back into the bed and sexually assaulted her, the affidavit said. S he told him she had money in her car and he forced her to accompany him to the car, the woman told investigators. When she pushed a panic button on her key remote that caused the cars alarm to go off, the man turned it off and threatened to kill her if she tried something again, she reported. The woman said she ran from the rapist, who pursued her, report said. The man knocked her to the ground and kicked her several times, before fleeing, the report said. Although the woman r eported she believed the man is black, an arrest affidavit said that Mr. Cardenas is white. When investigators arrested Mr. Cardenas, he told several stories, the r eport said. F irst, he denied having sex with anyone; then, he said he paid a woman $40 for sex, the report said. H is final story matched that of the victim, the report said.

Cops bullying citizens would be a good place to start. Ev en though Tom Rooneys district has been dramatically changed by redistricting, we are fortunate that he will be able to remain in Congress. He has consistently represented common sense in the form of smaller and more responsible government, a prosperous economy and perhaps most important, muchneeded private-sector jobs. Anything he can do to help get Florida moving forward again would help people with homes under water.Deadbeat dads should payIt is destructive that our legal system has the tools but is not using them effectively. If a deadbeat dad is caught he should pay the consequences. Among the guilty in the legal system are state attorneys, judges, hearing officers, child support enforcement employees and lawyers. We have the laws in place. Lets insist on prompt and vigorous enforcement.P ostal service demiseOne of the reasons the postal department is going broke is because they have high rates for us regular people and very low rates for the people who send out junk mail. I received three junk-mail envelopes today and all paid only 19 cents and I pay 45 cents.Check your childs social sitesPar ents need to monitor your childs Facebook, Twitter, I nstagram and any other social accounts they have. Some of your children are not who you think they are. I can tell you from reading my daughters wall that your student of the year is not the character of the year. Some of y our children are really nasty and mean. P lease take a moment to look at your childs pages. Look in their inboxes at the conversations they have and read what they post on others walls. Some of you may be shocked! Some of you may be pleasantly surprised. T ake the time and do it now before another student gets hurt. I am begging you, this time it was my daughter who got hurt, next time it could be yours.Europe?What do people mean when they say, Dont follow Eur ope? Thats the whole point! We are already part of Eur ope. What do you think the word global means? Ev erything talked about today is global. I cant believe so many people dont get it. Pr ograms and documentaries (even PBS) showing documentaries about how wonderful it is to visit China, Vietnam, Guam and even Moscow. With arms outstretched, w elcome to China. Obama pushing for less-strict laws letting other countries visit Florida! For me, I dont think so! Is n t it enough China is shipping bugs (ticks) into our ports literally killing people and destroying elm trees in M assachusetts? How many of you hear gravel-voiced Henry Kissinger quote, Its time for a new world order? Thats global. One world order,one world system. one currency (eventually), one leader. Its here. Like the Three M usketeers, all for one and one for all, which, in the global game, is pure and simple communism. What happens to one country happens to the rest. Who doesnt get this yet?W estern suicide?So me years ago there was a book about the suicide of the w est. C uts in the size of our defense budget may make the books dire predictions come true. At a time when the U.S. faces serious threats from Iran, a near civil war in Syria, a shooting war in Afghanistan and a w eird, unpredictable dictator in North Korea, any reductions in our preparedness are unthinkable. The administrations budget, 12.2 percent down from the level the Pentagon requested last year, is unthinkable. It could mean the suicide of the West. Got something to say?

When it comes to sending attachments through email, most people have one thing in mind: pictures. But sending other file types through email can be one of the most massively useful abilities that the Internet offers. Picture this: Youre working on a file at the office, and its a Word or Ex cel document. A colleague in another part of town or another office needs to see the file. Many people will take the time to print out and physically deliver or fax the document to their colleague, not r ealizing that the email system can be used to deliver any kind of file right to another computer. A ttach the file in an email message to your colleague, just as you would if you we re sending a picture. As long as your colleague has the same software that you used to create it, he or she should be able to save it to his or her hard drive or open it just like any other file. Then your colleague can print the document, if he or she wants, or handle it as needed. It is, however, the senders r esponsibility to make sure that the recipients will be able to open the file before it is sent. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email message marked H eres the file you wanted only to find that the file is in some format that youve never heard of and your computer cant open it. F or instance, if youre planning to send a Word document, find out what word processor the recipient uses.

S itting at opposite ends of a newly redesigned showroom with beachhouse chic designer touches, co-owners Theresa Trapani and Leah Fancher have figured out how to turn a 30-year friendship and backgrounds in commercial and residential interior design into their dream jobs. O ur unique friendship, which has gone on so long, is a good part of our business dynamic, said Ms. Tr apani. W e both complement each other, Ms. Fancher added. It s a synergy that has helped the Stuart business attract a mix of clients, including homeowners, r esidents looking to redecor ate condos and commercial customers, such as bankers, managers of newly constructed office buildings, the Palm City Animal Ho spital, Vaccine and Gene I nstitute and Torrey Pines M olecular Institute. W ith me having a commercial and Leah having a r esidential background, it helps us to grow the business to a different level, Ms. Trapani said. When Southern Blinds and Interiors started 31 y ears ago, it specialized in vertical blinds and 1-inch mini blinds. T oday, the once-narrow product line includes cordless cellular shades, 2-inch blinds, faux wood options, solar shades that keep out sun and heat, but still allow access to views, and updated plantation shutters, which have become prominent in residential communities. The products are made in the United States, as part of the entrepreneurs efforts to support the local and national economy. The store is also a distributor of H unter Douglas window dressings. W e have everything from the Key West style of the plantation shutters to the elegance of the privacy sheer, Ms. Trapani The business has evolved quite a bit and had kept up with the latest design trends. At the woman-owned business, the entrepreneurs also take control of the design and installation process, working with an installer who deals exclusively with Southern Blinds and Interiors. O ur installer will have our clients best interest at heart because he works only for us, and everyone wants the process to go as smoothly as possible from beginning to end, Ms. F ancher said. B eginning with a free consultation, clients get the benefit of a team with a vast and varied experience in interior design. Ms. Trapanis background working with stone, tile and granite interiors means she assists clients with remodeling bathrooms, kitchens and other projects, plus helping supply stone, tile, paint, decorative pieces and other materials for the job. H er partner is skilled at guiding clients to select quality products and helping execute and create their dream interiors. And thats what the women said they do best. They carry high-quality products and personally ensure proper installation that meets each clients needs as part of an overall goal to bring style and function to each room and window. Along the way, theyve helped improve the lives of several Martin County residents, donating to causes that benefit the Childrens cancer Society, the Outstanding People United to S ing chorus and Martin C ounty High School. Southern Blinds and Interiors is located at 2305 N.W.

Wal-Marts are now global and theyre both praised and vilified. Theyre vilified by the small businesses and/or inefficient businesses they drove out of the market and theyre praised by consumers for their low prices. S am accomplished what he did by building a retail machine that was more efficient than his competitors. He mastered the science and art of purchasing quality merchandise in volume domestically or abroad and tight inventory control, which allowed him to charge the lowest prices. He built a reputation for quality, low price and integrity that is unmatched by any other r etailer. The reason Wal-Mart sells every other product except new cars is because of state franchise laws which protect car dealers from competition like WalMar t. In all 50 states, car dealers have been able to lobby their legislators over the years to pass state laws which give them an exclusive market territory. In F lorida, for example, a manufacturer may not add another dealer of the same make within a 9-mile r adius of the existing dealer. If they attempt to do this, the dealer can appeal this to the Florida D epartment of Motor V ehicles where a hearing judge makes the decision. The franchise laws also tell manufacturers who can retail cars. A manufacturer is prohibited from doing so. A car retailer must have a factory franchise agreement. The results of all these archaic laws put a r eal damper on competition in the retail car business. It allows inefficient car dealers to remain in business and allows the haggling, horse-trading system of purchasing cars that dates back to the 19th century to perpetuate. P olls of consumers r egularly rank their car buying and servicing experiences as among the worst of any other product or service. Car dealers are consistently ranked in the bottom three of all professions, along with lawyers and politicians. If we learned anything from the explosive growth of WalMar t, it is that consumers want the best price and a pleasant buying experience. A consumer doesnt want to go into a retail store, buy a product and find out the next day that his next door neighbor bought the same car for hundreds or thousands of less from the same store. Y et this is standard operating procedure for car dealers. The shrewd, educated, sophisticated negotiator can buy a car very close to dealer cost. The very young, very old, uneducated, naive or those not schooled at speaking English are likely to pay a lot more for the exact same car from that same dealer. I have a hunch that N eanderthal car dealers are nearing extinction. The American consumer is getting smarter and more sophisticated every day. This new, enlightened consumer wont put up much longer with the old way of buying cars. If a customer walked into M acys and asked the salesman for the price of a S amsung big screen TV and the salesman responded, How much are you willing to pay? or I cant give you a price unless yo u re willing to buy today, that consumer would scream bloody murder. But this exact thing happens as standard operating procedure in most car dealerships today. The American consumer is also the American voter and I have a feeling that we are about to see some new, pro-consumer legislation with respect to how cars are sold in America. S tate franchise laws that help to preserve the status quo will be examined closely. An example of these laws surfaced recently when a startup company, T rueCar .com, offered a new and r efreshing way for car buyers to actually find out what the lowest price in their market was. This lasted about a year and T rueCar.com was growing like wildfire. I wrote two columns about T rueCar.com. You can read them both on my blog, www.EarlStewartOnC ars.com. The first was entitled Will T rueCar.com change the way you buy a car in 21st century? I wrote this before the intense pressure from car dealers, manufacturers, and state legislators caused T rueCar.com to cave in and redesign their unique, consumer-friendly, lowest price system.

After all, y our portfolio seems to be at the mercy of the financial markets, whose volatility is beyond anyones control. Y et you can control the quality of the investments y ou own and the diversification of those investments to improve your chances of attaining your long-term financial goals. One way in which to do so is to put as much as you can afford, year after year, into tax-deferred investments. When you contribute to a tax-deferred account, y our money has the potential to grow faster than it would if you placed it in a fully taxable investment, that is, an investment on which you paid taxes every year. Over time, this accelerated growth can add up to a big difference in your accumulated savings. F or example, if you put $200 each month into a taxable investment that earned a hypothetical 7 percent a year, youd end up with about $325,000 after 40 years, assuming y ou were in the 25 percent federal tax bracket. If you put that same $200 per month into a taxdeferred investment that earned the same hypothetical 7 percent a year, youd accumulate about $515,000 or nearly $200,000 more than youd have with the taxable investment.* Of course, you will eventually have to pay taxes on the tax-deferred investment, but by the time youre retired, you might be in a lower tax bracket. Fur thermore, depending on how much you choose to withdraw each year from y our tax-deferred account, y ou can have some control ov er the amount of taxes youll pay. Clearly, tax deferral can be a smart choice, but what sort of tax-deferred vehicles are available? One of your most attractive choices will be y our employer-sponsored r etirement plan, such as a 401(k). Your earnings have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis, and since you typically fund y our plan with pre-tax dollars, the more you put in, the lower your annualComing soon to your town: Sam Walton of car dealers?

taxable income. If yo u re lucky, your employer will even match some of your contributions. C onsequently, its almost always a good idea to put in as much as you can afford into your 401(k), up to the contribution limits, and to boost your contributions every time your salary increases. In 2012, you can contribute up to $17,000 to your 401(k), plus an additional $5,500 if youre 50 or older. Ev en if you participate in a 401(k) plan, you can probably also contribute to a traditional IRA. Your earnings have the potential to grow tax-deferred and y our contributions may be tax deductible, depending on your income level. In 2012, you can put in up to $5,000 to a traditional IRA, or $6,000 if youre 50 or older. (If you meet certain income guidelines, you might be eligible to contribute to a Roth IRA, which offers tax-free earnings, provided you dont start taking withdrawals until yo u re 59-1/2 and youve had your account at least five years.) F inally, if youve maxed out on both your 401(k) and yo ur IRA, you may want to consider a fixed annuity. Y our earnings grow taxdeferred, contribution limits are high and you can structure your annuity to provide you with an income stream you cant outlive. The more years in which y ou invest in tax-deferred vehicles, the better, so start putting the power of tax deferral to work soon. *This hypothetical example is for illustrative purposes only and does not r epresent a specific investment or investment strategy.

MARTIN COUNTY The Samaritan Center for Y oung Boys & Families hosted its signature event on Jan. 23, the great chef adventure, at Mariner S ands Country Club. Ev ent honorary chairs, Ma ry and Dan Gescheidle, helped make the luncheon the most successful one in r ecent memory.

In its press material, the group describes itself as a faith-based, non-profit organization committed to caring for victims of human trafficking and ending child slavery in the U nited States. W e treat each child as a survivor, not a victim. They are empowered to overcome their past, Mr. Thomas said. He said children at the safe house would get a loving environment, learn job skills and coping mechanisms and get emotional support to overcome the abuse they suffered. M ost survivors just want to forget. Every time they share their story they have to relive it, he said. B ut advocates say human smuggling is on the r ise, with New York, California and Florida reporting the biggest surges. P erpetrators force minors into prostitution, child pornography and forced labor, among other abuses. I was just completely blown away that this happened in a modern world, Mr. Thomas sad. He said the group is working with 30 other organizations on the Treasure Coast to help victims.

I would go to great lengths to steer clear of it. After a few years of teaching, I was introduced to a program called conscious discipline. Conscious discipline is a comprehensive, social and emotional intelligence classroom management program that empowers both teachers and students (Bailey 2000). I nstead of ignoring conflict, I have learned to notice conflict and work through it. Conscious disciple has taught me how to embrace it. I have learned that there is no perfect way to handle conflict. Now whenever I see conflict I say to myself, Br ing it on. In the morning, my students start their day off in learning centers. Most people would come into the r oom and think, Wow, I see a bunch of young children playing. In actuality, there is a truckload of learning taking place; not only academic learning, but also socialemotional learning. I love this time of day because it is loaded with conflicts, or as I have grown to realize, these conflicts are opportunities for me to teach the children how to work through stressful situations. At Th e Pine School, children are entrenched in conscious discipline at a very young age. Developmentally, children at this y oung age instinctively will r eact to conflict by using some form of aggression, either verbal or physical. By using conscious discipline as a teaching tool, I have seen children as young as 2 and 3 years old be able to self-regulate their emotions, while at the same time, use an assertive voice to let their wants and needs be known to others. Through conscious discipline, there has been a shift with my students. T ime after time I see my students choosing to help other children in the classroom. When they see a friend who is feeling sad or mad they are independently wishing them well. When they see someone who needs help, they are there to offer help. The most amazing thing to see is when a child who is dealing with conflict and willingly allows me to help them. I truly believe this willingness comes from a sense of belonging and safety which in turn has come from the use of conscious discipline. I have seen, through conscious discipline, that when children first feel safe and connected, they are then willing to go anywhere with me academically. They are willing to trust me and let me teach them anything I need to teach them. Fr an Churchey-Martinez is an early learning teacher at The Pine School.

H istorical Map Club: A one sold in his store. He demanded she return his charger and pursued her. In the end, she threw it out the car window. When confronted by S tuart police, the woman insisted it was a mistake, as she had put the wrong charger in the box. What she couldnt explain when confronted was why she got to her car and frantically called for boyfriend to return, instead of just opening the door getting the right charger and handing it to the clerk,Not understanding her jobA Fort Pierce woman who worked at a business in J ensen Beach may not have understood her job. It was to collect money for items that people purchased. B ut instead, she chose to give away the merchandise for free. S he was observed taking merchandise, voiding it and then handing it to customers who had not paid for it. It might be a nice gesture, but perhaps she didnt consider the economics of it. The business gets money to pay her salary by selling those items. If the business collects no money, she ends up without a job.L eaving evidence behindA Fort Pierce man was r ather startled when he arrived home and found a female in his house. She fled and he discovered she had taken $150, a paycheck for $228 and other items. The man didnt know the woman, but he discovered she left a Metro PCS cell phone behind. An officer took the cell phone to a Metro PCS business and learned the identity of the owner. As it turned out, the woman had been in the store shortly before he arrived. She bought a new phone. When confronted later, the woman denied everything, but changed her story after being told she had left her cell phone there. The woman has an extensive criminal record dating back to 1994, when she was charged with burglary. It would seem that after being a criminal for more than 17 years she would know not to leave a cell phone at a residence she burglarized. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 24, 2012 Martin County A13 015012Located in the heart of Brevard County the newly renovated Holiday Inn Melbourne Viera Conference Center Hotel is the only full-service hotel in Melbourne, Florida.

If you click Save As and look at the File Type or Format pull-down menu on the S ave As box that pops up, yo u ll see you have the ability to save your document in many different formats. This puts the control of the file type in y our hands. The same thing applies when you are trying to send a picture. Make sure that its a file that is saved in a format that your intended r ecipient can open. Usually a .jpg (jpeg) is a safe bet. M ost peoples familiarity with email attachments ends with the occasional picture, but once the idea of transferring files that way becomes clear, a lot of possibilities present themselves. He re are the steps for sending a file: F irst, you need to know where the file you want to send is located on your computer, and exactly what its called. So, if you have a document you want to send, save it and pay attention to the file name and the name of the folder that its saved in. Then, when you have y our e-mail program open, click New Message and begin to compose your message. Enter the recipients e-mail address, a comment in the subject field and then click the A ttach button (which is usually represented by a paperclip icon). N ext, your computer will give you some options. You want to indicate the computer that you are attaching a file to. Click the appropriate button and then navigate to the location on your hard drive where the file that you want to send r esides. (Look in the same folder where you saved it in, and then click on the name of the file to select it.) Click OK, and the file name will be listed as an attachment. Y ou can even send multiple files by repeating the procedure. But remember that large files do not always do well, so you want to keep the attachments small in size. A good rule of thumb is 100 kilobytes and smaller for most email. This should cover most office documents such as Wo rd files, but size can be a problem with a file that is ri ch with graphics. To check a files size when you go to attach it, right-click it and then click Properties. The next window that opens should tell you how big the file is.

C onchy Joes Seafood R estaurant and Bar doesnt have to imitate this tropical scene. It is a true example of Old Florida and Ca r ibbean flavors that others try to emulate. This restaurant, located on scenic Indian River Dr ive in Jensen Beach, is a little spot of paradise in more ways than one. I ts menu resembles one straight off the finer Ca r ibbean tables, boasting fresh shellfish and seafood prepared simply and colorfully. I ts sauted seafood Tr inidad, for instance, serves jumbo shrimp, dolphin and grouper with diced tomatoes, sherry and a Caribbean cream sauce over vermicelli. And the Bahamian-cracked conch is hand-tenderized, breaded and lightly fried. W ith golden conch fritters from Harbor Island, fish in a bag, coconut-fried shrimp, and conch salad with peppers, onions, celery and fresh lime juice, the local stop is not unlike its island counterparts. When I first moved to the Treasure Coast, C onchy Joes Seafood R estaurant and Bar was one of my favorite haunts because it reminded me of Arawak Cay, a wildly popular restaurant on Cable B each in the Bahamas. That Bahamian restaurant served an amazing conch chowder, and so does C onchy Joes. I f you havent had it, I advise you to try it. Id put ours up against any chowder, said Frederic Fritz Ay re s, administrator. C ustomers rave about it every day. C ulinary industry insiders took notice, too. The local restaurant got national accolades when both Gourmet and Bon A pptit magazines r equested the recipe for its homemade soup. B ut its not just the soup and seafood that are good here. The kitchen is equipped with a brick fireplace fueled with oak logs trucked in by the semiload. Thats why the steaks, chicken and ribs cooked ov er the wood-burning grill have the unique distinctive flavor that has become the restaurants trademark. Sl o w-roasted prime rib has become so popular it is now on the menu every day. And the barbecue boar ribs are so tender the meat falls off the bone. B ut its the works burger, a 1950s-style sandwich, that been a favorite for decades. It has its own w ell-deserved and comic intro on the menu, and it turned out to be as delicious as expected. It s hard to pick a favorite from the list of tropical drinks, grouper Marsala, broiled seafood combo, filet mignon, and sandwich and salad choices. After about 33 years in business, President Fred Ay r es seems to have perfected the art of rustic island-style dining. In 1979 he opened C onchy Joes in downtown We st Palm Beach and moved it Jensen Beach in 1983. Seven years ago, he started a renovation that took about four years to complete. N ewly renovated, C onchy Joes, with its back jetty, thatched roofs, exposed ceiling beams, colorful plantation shutters and open patios, still maintains the barefoot-atthe-beach feel. And as the long-time o wner prepares to retire, Mr. Ayres is grooming his son, Fritz, to run the business with the help of a y oung creative staff. Among them are skilled bartenders Rebecca STAR SCOPESJames Tucker W eek of 2-24-2012 Aries-March 21-April 19Life is looking positive for you, Aries. Now is the time to launch new projects.

TREASURE COAST W ells Fargo Bank has contributed $2,500 to Deaf and Ha rd of Hearing Services of the Treasure Coast, which will be used to promote childrens hearing health through the dangerous decibels program. The donation will help DHHS to bring the turn off dangerous decibels program to many Treasure C oast elementary classr ooms. TODD is a demonstration mannequin who listens to childrens MP3 players and tells them how loud they are. TODD was donated by Macys and has been retrofitted with prosthetic ears and a sound meter. T ODD is part of an overall program called dangerous decibels, designed to teach children the dangers of noise induced hearing loss and responsible use of MP3 players.

How about this w eather? If you are a summer fisher I know you love it. Winter fishing, well lets just say y ou are getting up early. O ur blues and pompano like the cooler water, so if y ou are going to find them be there early, the coolest part of the day. If you were looking for some tarpon or snook action they have moved in to the late morning time slot. It may be our cooler months, but the weatherman sure has this right, at least I think so. S eas settled and if you we re looking for dolphin they were in that 60 feet to 100 feet. Not big fish but nice 15-pound fish. Live bait or trolled they were up close. Pay attention to the color lines. That is where they were located. But as nice as the seas are, flat no turbity, I would be looking for the cobia in 30 feet and I might add the sail were also in that 30 feet. H ad a lot of surf anglers telling me about the sail jumping and it was not just one area. I had calls from many locations about sails, but Cobia is my target and I would have to live bait behind the boat and would be bumping along paying attention with my pitch r ods in the holder rigged and ready. Sharks, turtles, r ays and bait schools will have the cobia with them; pay attention. B ottom fishing for lanes, mangroves and all the usual suspects has been excellent, so if you are out there drifting pay attention, cobia. Schools of big jacks and a nice gathering of tarpon around the power plant if y ou want to test your warranty on that new reel. Su rf anglers if it is blues and pompano that start y our heart, fish early, watch that sun come up. You need the coolest part of the day. It is all about water temperature. These fish like the cooler water. As the sun r ises, so will the water temps. Cut baits for the blues and clams and sand fleas for the pomps. Yes, y ou need that long cast. Lots of whiting on a piece of shrimp and if there are that many whiting there will be plenty of snook in the trough, so you make the call. Yes you could use a little whiting or that D.O.A deep running bait buster to find one, just fish the trough where you just caught that whiting. It is summer why would they not be there? Tr out fishing continues to be excellent throughout the area, a few reds closer to the inlets and yes, the pompano have been in the area with the reds but early, cooler water. No r ain so that North Fo rk north of the boat r amp off Port St. Lucie B oulevard has a lot of fish: tarpon, reds, trout and jacks to name a few, even a few pomp's made the list. If you have not fished that area in a while check it out, worth the ride. S nook, wait for the sun to go down and pick a bridge. The water has to be moving and you have to slide your bait on the bottom, bait stops set the hook, watch that slot. T ill next week, I sure like the summer. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach. Enjoy summer-like temps while they last FISHINGHENRY CAIMATTO F riday, February 24, 2012 B8 Martin CountyHometown News 761859 BACK PAIN?Treasure Coast to receive the free report mailed to you today that exposes how many Treasure Coast residents are eliminating back pain, call this tollfree, 24 hour recorded message at 1-800-864-4991. 682874 017914 Bank promotes childrens hearing health F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com

2MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG A taxing subject There are several memorable lines from Gone with the Wind, but one of my favorites is Death, taxes and childbirth! Theres never any convenient time for any of them. That is true, but at this time of year, while we may avoid death and childbirth, taxes are with us. This months F orever Young theme is financial and tax planning. Its a subject that makes a lot of us nervous. To ease some of the panic, the issue contains interviews with financial advisers and certified public accountants who have tips on how to plan for r etirement and have the type of retirement youve dreamed of. My father, Alfred Koppel, of Stuart, is 93. He has been a CPA for nearly 70 years and still has a client or two. In fact, he w ent to the IRS office in Port St. Lucie a few months ago for a client audit. He has seen a lot of changes in the industry and the practice of accounting in the days before computers and tax programs. B efore I got certified, I worked as an assistant bookkeeper, he said. I decided I might as well get a job as an accountant. I had two introductory courses under my belt. I answered a few questions and got a job as an accountant. In those days, you had to have a college degree and a years experience before you could complete all four parts of the CPA exam, which included theory, law, auditing and problems.

3MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Making a good foundation for retirement STUART When youre planning for retirement, its important to take the long view. Thats what Jamie Chapogas, an accredited asset management specialist, tells her clients. W e look at cash flow-money in and money out, she said. For most people, the money in is a paycheck. Then we look at what they spend. Its important to be honest and not pretend. We look at what they own, including a vehicle and primary residence and what they owe, including interest rate and years left on the loan. Then its time to plan. Often people want to pay off debts, but its important to save while youre paying them off, she said. Get in the habit of saving, however small. If the debts are high interest, try to get it paid off. If its the home, is it worth paying off? I f its the forever home, people want to know how to pay it off before they retire. You can make additional principal payments. If its not the forever home, why pay it off if youre not going to live in it and the interest rate is low? Ms. Chapogas said that it is important to calculate the cost of carrying the mortgage, but sometimes there is more involved than math. S ometimes we deal with emotions, she said. Everybody is different and everybodys situation is different. There isnt a cookie-cutter approach. In planning for retirement, people need to consider the sources of their income, including pensions, Social S ecurity and investments and their projected retirement expenses. I f they retire young and healthy, they have a lot of hours to fill, she said. There may be increased entertainment costs, and later on, medical costs. A lot of people in their 50s had children late in life and there may still be college expenses. Ms. Chapogas said that after the financial turmoil of the last few years, people want investments to be safe. A bank is federally insured. But you have to factor in inflation. In 10 years, yo u ll have less purchasing power. P eople are living into their 90s. You have to grow money at an effective r ate. Y ou need to earn a 5 percent average rate of return because inflation has averaged approximately three percent in the last 100 years. We have to dissect it for the client because theres a risk of being too conservative or too aggressive. It needs to be balanced. W omen have special concerns in planning for retirement. W omen own more small businesses than men and traditionally incorporate to lower salaries and reduce taxes, she said. That means less S ocial Security. W omen earn less than men because there is still a glass ceiling. The average woman is out of the workforce for 11 years for childrearing and that also means less Social Security and fewer years to save. Women also tend to live longer, and they have to prepare for that. Ms. Chapogas said that women need to protect, save and plan. I f you have dependents, you should have some form of insurance, she said. If youre 50 or older, you need to do long-term care planning for you and your spouse. Y ou should save for retirement. There are tax benefits to do so. You By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See PLANNING, Page 10 Jamie Chapogas 681126

4MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Planning key to comfortable retirement STUART When people turn 50, their thoughts often turn to retirement, even if it is years down the road. Michael Hartman, accredited investment fiduciary and financial consultant with Strategic Retirement Group in Stuart, sees clients like that all the time. The focus usually shifts from college planning to retirement planning, he said. Although retirement may be 10 to 20 y ears away, its not too early to begin planning. The first step is to set realistic goals. Thats the hardest one. P eople are used to living a certain life style. They need to set a goal of how much they need. Its usually 55 to 80 percent of income. In addition to calculating income from sources such as S ocial Security, savings and pensions, its important to think about costs, as well. O ne of the most important factors when you retire is health care costs, he said. Insurance costs increase dramatically until you are eligible for Medicare. If you want to retire before 65, you have to consider the cost of health care, dental and vision expenses. One of the most important things people should do before r etiring is to get rid of debt. T ackle as much debt as you can, he said. Trying to pay off y our home mortgage is a good idea. People feel better not By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See RETIREMENT, Page 12

The group exercise coordinator for the Martin Health System fitness centers, she thinks that taking care of yourself brings a good return on the investment. I n 2012, when you get your tax r efund back, its time to invest in yourself as a way of preventive maintenance on your body, she said. Anything that jump-starts healthier habits is very important. Instead of spending that refund on a vacation or a new refrigerator, its far more important to make sure youre healthy, because y ou cant do anything for anyone else if yo u re not. The six health and fitness centers, spread out from Hobe Sound to St. L ucie West, are medically-based facilities that are open to the public. W e are certified to handle people from the hospital with cancer, diabetes, arthritis and heart problems, she said. W e also offer classes in yoga, Pilates, aquatics and water therapy, strength training and cardiovascular workouts. P ersonal trainers are available and you have to be a member. The centers are more concerned with finding the appropriate level of exercise for each person than using a one-sizefits-all approach. W e are big into easing into a regimen, Ms. Falkner said.

Center plans fashion fundraiser STUART Julie Miller began the Fl ow er Power fundraiser because the M eals on Wheels program made such a difference to her father. I t was the highlight of his day when the people came by, she said. They helped me and when he passed, I wanted to give back. Ms. Miller volunteered for the program. One day, when she read that funding was being cut, she came in and suggested a luncheon and fashion show as a fundraiser. She was told to go ahead and do it. I come from a production background and I figured out how much money I needed to do the events, she said. I called it Flower Power. I was working from home and sending out r equests for funding. I had met Alina R umble, the owner of Anchor Home H ealth. She called and agreed to be top sponsor. I jumped up and down. That first event was five years ago. This years Flower Power luncheon, fashion show and silent auction will take place on March 21 in the Langford Theatre at the New Kane Center in Stuart. Broadcaster Kelley Dunn of WPTV channel 5 will serve again as master of ceremonies. Sh e s our fashion commentator and loves the event, Ms. Miller said. We are so blessed. Each year, the event has grown. Even in the current economy, last year was our best year ever. The team pitches in, soliciting items for the silent auction. We use real people to model real clothes from local stores. There are working moms, r etired ladies, high school students and children. It runs the whole range. We have a good time. T oday, Julie Miller works at the Kane C enter as program development and r ental manager and still volunteers for M eals on Wheels. She is extremely proud of the success of Flower Power because of the help it gives those who need help. All of the proceeds of the event go to buying meals for seniors in need, she said. We have raised $123,000 that has gone to purchase nearly 15,000 meals. The Kane Center will also continue its Kane Cabaret on March 11, with a performance by the Irwin Solomon Tr io.

8MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Even hippies gotta worry about money eventually It was a little confusi ng for me to watch our peace and love generation morph into our parents. We had pledged to each other that we could make the planet a better place by avoiding the 9to-5 rat race that had ensnared our hapless parents. We vowed that the pursuit of the almighty dollar would never be a part of our future. N ot us. We would spend our time hanging out with friends, smoking Mother N ature and listening to cool music. It was all to be so idyllic and pastoral. O ur very own take on living the good life. Then it happened. Z AP! R eality hit like a lightning bolt. C ollege money dried up and our parents cut us loose. We had no choice but to take our two years of Poly-Sci or our philosophy degree out into the workplace and try to turn them into cash. It proved to be very difficult. Y et, when we did go to work, we excelled like none before us. The post war generation authored an explosion of new and exciting ideas that carry us till this day. Technology would be our gift to the world. While we were doing that, however, we ignored one basic fact: Our country was built on hard work. The kids who w ent to San Francisco with flowers in their hair had no interest in doing the mundane labor that carries this great nation. Ours was a larger, more ethereal (and less physically demanding) calling. At least that was how we perceived it. As for me, I found out that once I married my little hippy girlfriend a whole lot of responsibility was part of the deal. When the kids came along forget about it I had no choice but to immerse myself in the work that would provide the cash to sustain us. It was amazing how fast my ideals began to conform. My peace sign quickly turned into a Mercedes emblem. In my younger days I had searched for the perfect high, but now my goal was the perfect mutual fund. The horror! The changes were insidious. As the years passed I didnt even realize that my interest in the Rolling Stones had been replaced by my worry over kidney stones. I had started out protesting against the man and now I was the man. R unning a business, raising children, paying a mortgage and fretting about my federal income taxes. When I looked into the mirror I could no longer see the long-haired kid who lounged away his days playing harmonica in the park at Haight Ashbury.

We liked each other and one day I got a call from him. He wanted to build houses on post-World War II Long Island because the construction of the Whitestone Bridge made it easier to get there. He wanted me to be his accountant. Fr om then on, my father built a practice on Long Island, made up of an interesting mix of Europeans and Americans. There was even a Russian princess. My father worked from home at a time when most of my friends fathers traveled into The City on the Long Island Railroad every day. A ccounting, he said, was very different. When you prepared a tax return in those days, there might be 100 calculations to finish. If there was one mistake, you had to do the whole thing ov er because every calculation changed. It was all done with a pencil, a good eraser, a song and a prayer. A tax re turn took one to two hours, but if you had to redo it, it took you four. My mother checked the math, going over each calculation. There were so many that you were bound to make a mistake, my father said. Even the calculators were primitive and it was easy to make a mistake. M ost of the time, I did it without a calculator. When I first started, I added every long column by hand. You never knew if you picked up the right numbers. Sometimes you had to do it over three or four times. It was a lot of extra hard, dirty work. My father noted that both the tax code and audits have become much more complicated. Theres no question the tax code has become more complex, he said. I m not sure if it would have become so complex without computers and calculators because it wouldnt be possible to do it. As computations have become easier to make, the tax codes have become more complicated. T ax audits have also become more complicated. Y ears ago, it was a relaxed situation, he said. The IRS agent came, he knew his stuff and was able to do the job. He would come in, relax, put his briefcase down, work, wed go out to lunch, have a cocktail, come back and finish. He came up with the tax and it was all done that way. The average r eturn did not take very long. I t slowly became more difficult to get an audit done in a short period. The agent has audit procedures and he has to check off everything before he gets finished. They can make no decisions on their own. Theyre not allowed to go out to lunch, but it takes a day or two instead of three to four hours to come up with the same amount of tax. At the end of the interview with my father, my mother, Lillian, got on the phone and told a story that seemed to encapsulate how different things are today. My fathers first cousin, also named Alfred, was also preparing to become a CPA. He was doing his year of work experience to qualify and the firm was not paying him because they knew they had a captive audience. He finally asked for subway fare, then 5 cents each way. The firm fired him.

o wing a mortgage. It is a major debt in most budgets. It makes sense when theyre working to have a fixed mortgage and write off the interest. When they r etire, having it paid off can add peace of mind. What helped get the economy into the state its in is too many people borro wing too much. They couldnt pay for it. At 50 to 60, you may not have time to make up for mistakes. Another thing people can do at 50 to prepare for retirement is to contribute to a qualified retirement account such as an IRA or 401(k) plan. Y ou can catch up on contributions when you turn 50 or make additional contributions, Mr. Hartman said. As y ou near retirement, the IRS allows you to contribute more. You cant make catch up contributions prior to 50. M any people want help in planning for retirement and seek guidance from a financial adviser. Picking an adviser is like picking a doctor, Mr. Hartman said. You have to have a certain level of trust. A referral from a family member or friend is a good start. Its good to interview the person. Reputable firms will give you a free consultation to meet the adviser and the team. How an adviser is compensated and what credentials they have are important considerations. O ur fee schedule is always disclosed and how we get paid is disclosed, Mr. Har tman said. Clients know the cost up front and the level of service. I t s also important to find out where they went to school and if they are secur ities registered. A Series 7 registration allows you to sell stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Some registrations dont allow you to use all investments. A valuable website is www.finra.org. You can check out if the financial adviser or broker is securities registered and if any complaints have been lodged. If you have selected an adviser, you should remember that the portfolio he or she assembles is for your benefit. O ur job is to help design a portfolio for the investor based on age, risk tolerance and time horizon, Mr. Hartman said. That gets more critical as y ou get older as y ou dont have time to make a mistake. I t goes back to having a trusted r elationship with r egular reviews and meetings. There needs to be time to evaluate lifechanging events, whether the goals are still the same and if new financial concerns have arisen. Then we decide how to tackle them to accomplish the goals.

W ith my kids wanting to attend college I had to cut corners. The guy who wanted to change the world was r educed to hunting down the best early bird special. Most of the time I r emained optimistic that my financial situation would change for the better and I would soon be back on my feet. In r eality, if I didnt come up with a car payment I would be on my feet soon enough. As tight as money was I remember how shot down I was when the girl at M cDonalds gave me a senior discount on a cup of coffee. Me? A senior? I had to bite my tongue to keep from telling her where to put that discount. I was only 55. Still, once I calmed down, I had to admit that my dreams of a smooth-running BMW had now become dreams of a smooth-running BM. Now when I heard the name Grateful Dead, an image of Dr. Ke vorkian would pop into my mind. It was just awful. Now, as a semi-retired individual, I am happy to receive a check from the same government that I once wanted to overthrow. My savings receive almost no interest, and I pay for M edicare that will probably not even be there when I need it. Instead of acid I need an antacid. My K-E-G is now an E-K-G. B ut you know, life these days is pretty good. My beautiful hippie wife Lana is still with me and we ra ised two great kids. We are OK financially and I have plenty of time to reflect on the journey that I traveled. Becoming my parents was not nearly as traumatic as I once believed. Somewhere deep inside I know that if I had to, I could still spend my days in the park living off R amen Noodles and peanut butter. I just hope that all of my brothers and sisters survived the trip as well as I did.

Estimates vary, but numerous surveys have indicated the average American household has more than $10,000 in credit card debt, a figure that doesn't include debt such as mortgages, car loans or student loans. In Canada, an early 2011 report from the Vanier Institute of the Family suggested the debt-to-income ratio for the average Canadian family was 150 percent, which means that for every $1,000 a Canadian family earns, it ow es $1,500. What these figures illustrate is that even the most financially savvy debtor may be in a precarious position, one that, should an unforeseen layoff or medical emergency occur, could turn disastrous in a relatively short period of time. As a result, an individual's ability to manage personal debt is of paramount importance, and the following tips can help men and women walking a financial tightrope address their debt in a way that might help them get back on their financial feet. Eliminate bad debt. Not all debt is bad, but credit card debt is rarely good. Card holders with substantial credit card debt should contact their companies as soon as possible to see if the company is willing to work with them on a repayment plan. This is more prudent than declaring for bankruptcy, which will negatively impact an individual's credit score for y ears to come. Companies are often willing to work with card holders about repayment plans that make it easier to pay down debt. But once an agreement is made, card holders must make meeting the terms of that agreement their top priority.metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News See DEBT, 17 metrocreativecreativeconnectionIndividuals with substantial credit card debt might be able to reduce the stress of paying down that debt by calling their credit card company and working out a new repayment plan.

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, year, or 10 y ears from now? The answer is a guaranteed NO. So starting today, document everything before you get to far down the road and have to backtrack.. This will help your research tremendously in the future, when y ou 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 remember 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 w ell be, just made up to suit the purpose. Each fact recorded for your ancestor should be documented with exactly 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 B eth. 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, 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 possible. 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. T ombstones also frequently contain incorrect information. A re lative in our family is actually buried under the wrong name.16MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Document your sources in tracing your roots GENEALOGYB RENDA K.

17MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Stop accruing bad debt. Using a card wisely is the key to avoiding unnecessary debt. When using credit cards, do not use them for everyday purchases like groceries or movie tickets. This type of credit card usage is habit forming, and it's very easy for card holders to quickly amass a large balance on their accounts for items they could just as easily could have paid for with cash. Keep in mind interest will be charged on all balances not paid in full each month, so don't make that cup of coffee or that pair of movie tickets cost even more by adding interest to the overall cost. Pay down high-interest debts first. Always work to pay down high-interest debt first while paying a little more than the minimum on low-interest debt. If a car loan came with an especially high interest rate (hint: borrowers whose down payment on a car loan was small or nonexistent are likely saddled with a high-interest loan), work to pay down that balance as much as possible. Something as simple as paying an extra $25 per month on a $200 per month car payment can reduce the length of time it takes to pay off that loan considerably. Once a high-interest debt is paid off, move on to the debt with the next highest interest rate. Stop paying the bare minimum. P aying just the minimum will barely cover the interest. That means the principal will hardly disappear, and the debt will be a seemingly impossible obstacle to overcome. Pay more than the bare minimum each month, even if it means making sacrifices elsewhere. Avoid borrowing from Peter to pay P aul. Transferring balances from a high-interest card to a low-interest card is one thing, but borrowing against property or a retirement savings account is playing with fire. W ith regards to borrowing against a 401(k), the penalty to do so, not to mention the extra income tax such a withdrawal will accrue, before retirement is substantial. In addition, the v alue of those retirement savings will suffer considerably as the interest earned will be on that much less money until the full amount is paid back to the account..DebtF rom page 14 This makes a strong case for thoroughly researching each person and finding as many sources as you can. 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 y ou have personally verified that it is correct. Never download someone elses information into your work until you document it and are satisfied that the preponderance of evidence shows that this data belongs to your family. Trying to sort out unrelated individuals, much less whole family groups, from your database, is a nightmare.

18MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSMarch 2012FOREVER YOUNG Delaying retirement has financial, social benefits The need to save for retirement is something professionals start hearing about from the moment they begin their careers. Whether it's parents extolling the virtues of retirement plans or employers who encourage their employees to take advantage of their r etirement programs, saving for r etirement is never far from the minds of professionals. As important as such savings can be, many workers are deciding to delay their retirements. As much as men and women envision retiring to a faraway seaside villa for their golden years, such r etirements are not terribly common, and many older workers have begun to r ecognize the economic and social benefits of delaying retirement. Those undecided about when they want to say goodbye to the office should consider the following benefits to delaying r etirement. Fewer years to worry about financing your lifestyle. Thanks to advancements in medicine and more and more people living healthier lifestyles, men and women are now living longer than in years past. While living longer, healthier lives is a plus, it does have an effect on retirement. Because people can now expect to live longer, they must ensure their money lasts long enough. By delaying retirement, men and women will have fewer retirement years to finance. More chances to save money. It might be your dream to retire early, but y ou could be doing yourself a great disservice by ending your career prematurely. Men and women at or near the end of their careers are often making more money than they ever have, which enables them to save more than they have in the past, especially if children are full grown and supporting themselves. Take advantage of these high-salary years, even if it means working an extra few years. If you do, when you retire you could have substantially more in savings than you would have had you retired early. Stay socially active. In addition to economic benefits, delaying retirement has social benefits as well. Many people get the bulk of their social interaction with colleagues and coworkers. When men and women retire, these opportunities for social interaction can dwindle r ather quickly, and it's not uncommon for retirees to battle feelings of isolation. D elaying retirement allows you to easily maintain contact with friends and colleagues, and can lead to a better quality of life. The chance to give back. Many older professionals view retirement as being put out to pasture, where their years or experience aren't utilized. However, individuals who delay retirement can use their extra years around the office as an opportunity to leave a legacy for the next generation. This is something professionals find especially valuable as their retirement draws nearer and they want to leave a lasting mark, be it on their company, within their industry or in the community in which their company operates. Delaying retirement provides more time to build this legacy, and can create a greater sense of fulfillment when men and women do decide to retire. D elaying retirement is growing increasingly popular. Men and women often see it as a chance to build a bigger nest egg and leave a more lasting legacy within their company and community. metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown NewsDelaying retirement is growing increasingly popular.
