And there are increasingly fewer places where they can legally smoke. In Mar tin County, the campaign to snuff out smoking reached a new level recently when one man confronted another man about smoking while pumping gasoline. When the man refused to put out his cigarette, the other man returned to his vehicle and got a gun. That worked. M ost would agree smoking while pumping gasoline is not smart, but threatening to shoot someone over it may be even less smart. The man who threatened the smoker was the one who ended up being arrested. He was charged with aggravated assault.W ar against dog ownersWhen a woman was confronted by Martin C ounty deputies as to why she poked another woman, while she was walking her dogs, with an umbrella, she r eplied that she was in a fight against people who o wned dogs.See B LOTTER, A3 BEST OF THE BLOTTERJA Y MEISEL Columnist proud to be part of newspaper GARDENINGA15 HAPPY BIRTHDAY INDEXClassifiedB9 Crossword B6 Fishing B8 Golf B8 Horoscopes B1 Obituaries A9 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 Rants & Raves A6 V iewpoint A6 Sound policies recognized MARTIN COUNTY As she starts her third term as Martin Countys supervisor of elections, V icki Davis is doing so with her offices expenses down about 20 percent since 2008.

It uses funding from the E conomic Stimulus Act of 2008 to encourage lending to healthy companies in Happy birthday, HTN! Ten years ago, I got a phone call that changed my life. It was an invitation to be managing editor of H ometown News. I thought I knew what the project would entail: start a group of community newspapers from the ground up. My job would be to design the paper, plan content, hire staff, order equipment, gather news and start putting out a newspaper. S imple, right? It started out that way. If Id had any idea of the wild ride ahead of me, I might have answered that phone call differently.Paper turns 10 MARTIN COUNTY In honor of H ometown News 10th anniversary and its growth since then from a four-edition paper in 2002 to one that has covered about 250 miles on Floridas east coast, we take a look back at some of the issues that shaped Martin County in the last decade. H ometown News launched editions in Martin C ounty, Port St. Lucie and Fo rt Pierce in June 2002. At that time, the census count showed around 127,000 people living in Mar tin County, about Amateur radio operators host expo TREASURE COAST When disaster strikes, a little-known group of hobbyists turn their past times into life-saving action. M embers of the Martin County Amateur Radio Association typically use their equipment for their own amusement, communicating with fellow enthusiasts. B ut these ham radio operators, as they call themselves, also provide crucial communication during emergencies. And on June 23 and 24, they want to introduce the public to the systems that have let them lead communications during massive storms, tornadoes and other natural disasters that toppled more traditional methods. Their event is part of activities to celebrate amateur radio week, and is set for Sandsprit Park, located at 3443 S.E. St L ucie Blvd., Stuart. It will focus on emergency power sources. The idea is to preferably use a generator and get off the power grid, so to speak, said Eric Boyd, president of the Mar tin County Amateur Radio Association. Thats important, because when deadly hurricanes such as 2004s Fr ances and Jeanne eradicate phone and electricity lines and towers, radio operators lend their services to local disaster coordinators. As soon as area shelters open, Joe S awyer, the groups emergency coordinator, deploys operators to each site. He also sends hams to area hospitals, emergency operation centers and Red Cross headquarters. What ends up happening is the storm, tornado or disaster comes in, takes out communication towers, and even emergency responders lose the Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographerJaime Chamberlin, 16, of Palm City scores a kill during the Lifes A Beach volleyball tournament Saturday, June 16 at South Fork High School.

ability to communicate. And even when the storm doesnt take the cell phones out, (the systems) are typically overloaded and you cant get calls out anyway, Mr. Boyd said. I n these instances, we provide any emergency communications that might be required of us. The weekend activities also promise educational activities suitable for children and there will also be information for people looking to learn about the latest amateur radio technology and licensing r equirements, organizers said. W e hope that people will come and see for themselves. This is not your grandfathers radio anymore, said Allen Pitt, spokesman for the American Radio Relay League, the national association. The communications networks that ham radio people can quickly create have saved many lives in the past months when other systems failed or were overloaded.

The dog owner reported that while walking her dogs, the other woman was following her. At one point, apparently she got behind the other woman and when they passed she greeted her, but the woman began to yell and curse at her, and said she did not like her dogs. S hortly afterward, the dog owner reported the woman hit her with the umbrella, although the other woman only admitting to tapping her with the umbrella. M aybe the dogs, having witnessed all that, were thinking, Thank God we r e not humans.Bizarre burglaryguy that was offering a lot for a really good price. He promised us the world but basically he disappeared on us, Ms. J eacoma said. He auctioned off everything in the building and took everybodys money. Theres a criminal suit against him but nobody ever found him. When she first met Mr. Bergeron, the planner looked slightly frazzled, with long hair and disheveled clothes. But his charming French accent, $10,000 crystal chandelier hanging from his reception hall and talk that he was about to open two locations in Palm Beach helped put his clients at ease. Another couple was even waiting in the parking lot for a chance to meet with Mr. Bergeron and pay the entire $5,000 fee up front to take advantage of an incredible deal that included the wedding cake, catering, DJ, florist, photographer, limousine and use of the Crystal R eception Hall, located at 4195 S.W. High Meadows Av e. in Palm City. I thought he was unkempt because he worked so hard. He said he worked seven days a week, ran another company in West P alm Beach and was getting r eady to open two other locations, Ms. Jeacoma said. B ut my 11-year-old son said, Did you notice that guy was wearing the same clothes from yesterday? Clients who contracted with Mr. Bergeron said they would soon learn it was more than his appearance that was shoddy. The landlord of the High M eadows Avenue property that houses the Crystal R eception Hall contacted Po rt S t. Lucie-based caterer J ayne Raynolds, after he said Mr. Bergeron reneged on the lease. He knew she had a successful business and asked if she wanted to take ov er the reception hall. Once she agreed to do so, the calls started pouring in from 10 couples and the parents of a child planning a sweet 16 party and all of who said Ms. R aynolds predecessor had made off with their cash. I really dont know anything about him and his place, Ms. Raynolds said, but took responsibility to fulfill the contracts. When I started calling people, we assured them they would have their wedding, she said. One of the first people she met was a distraught bride, whod already spent her entire wedding budget with Mr. Bergeron. Among the first planners promises to the bride were decorated arches and columns items Ms. R aynolds Silver Platter Entres did not have on hand. It meant the new planner had to turn to her network of fellow industry workers, We dding Professionals of the Tr easure Coast. One donor, A Paradise W edding, contributed an arch decorated with flowers, chair sashes, centerpieces and decorations for the bridal table. Silver Platter Entres provided food, drink, staff and decoration all at no cost. Thanks to their donations, the wedding proceeded as planned, with the companies absorbing the $4,057 time in prison, but were previously arrested, Sheriff Crowder said. S heriff Crowder said the arrests, part of Operation Hit the Block, targeted the small community of Banner Lake in the Hobe Sound area. Dur ing the investigation leading to the arrests, investigators received a lot of cooperation from residents not involved in drug sales, he said. They dont like their neighborhood turned into a marketplace for sale of illegal drugs, Sheriff Crowder said. In vestigators seized 250 cocaine rocks, 13 pounds of marijuana and two firearms, S heriff Crowder said. The investigation seems to show a resurgence in the sale of cocaine, possibly because prescription drugs are harder to obtain on an illegal basis, he said. Generally, the operation was carried out through use of informants who bought drugs during a four-month period, S heriff Crowder said. S ome of the arrestees were r elated, such as Gerald Lee Pr eston and Lil Gerald Preston, father and son, authorities said. B ut no organized network of drug sales existed, they said. S ome of the suspects were r ecently out of prison, said Sgt. John Budensiek of the Mar tin County Sheriffs Office. A uthorities said they are still looking for 10 other suspects. M ost of those arrested were charged with sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a park and possession of cocaine. Those with multiple stays in prison, according to Florida D epartment of Corrections r ecords, included: Alvin Alonzo Brown, 54, 8529 S.E. Citrus Way, Hobe S ound, was charged with three counts of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a park and three counts of possession of cocaine. F lorida Department of Corr ections records show that Mr. Brown has had seven stints in prison, beginning in 1977. H is first conviction was for armed robbery and he was incarcerated for nearly three y ears. M ost of his subsequent convictions were related to sale or possession of cocaine, but he also was convicted of burglary and battery on a law enforcement officer. He was last released from prison in 1999. James A. Haslom, 7858 S.E. Kings Way St., Hobe S ound, was charged with sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a park and possession of cocaine. Mr. Haslam has served six stints in prison, beginning in 1986 after being convicted of trafficking stolen property, F lorida Department of Corr ections records showed. He s been convicted on other charges, including grand theft of a motor vehicle, sale of counterfeit drugs, sale of cocaine and aggravated assault. S teven Lewis, 52, 8509 S.E. C omus St., was charged with two counts of sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of a park and two counts of possession of cocaine. F lorida Department of Corr ections records show that hes been to prison nine times, beginning in 1986 after being convicted of grand theft. Most of his subsequent convictions were for sale or possession of cocaine.BustF rom page A1CatererF rom page A1BlotterF rom page A1 See B LOTTER, A5 See CATERER, A4

T ax Collectors Association acknowledged her offices efforts at efficient audits, customer service, budgeting and innovation with its excellence in financial operations award. One system, for example, cut waste and streamlined the distribution of the offices fee collections to var ious taxing authorities. It shaved weeks from each process, resulting in faster re venue for these agencies. W e reduced it to five clicks of the mouse, Ms. Pietruszewski said. Thats saving thousands of hours and thousands of dollars for the rest of the time that we ar e here. B oth Ms. Davis and Ms. Pietruszewski started their new terms thanking supporters and pledging to continue their missions. He r major goal, Ms. Dav is said, is to continue to provide fair, accurate and transparent elections, ensuring no voter is disenfranchised and that all votes are counted and every vote counts. To that end, her office created a website providing updated information, including features that allow voters to find their precincts and other information by typing their last name, date of birth and address. Voters can also r equest vote-by-mail ballots, access sample ballots, check all personal information for accuracy, read candidate information, get data on voting trends and other updates. At the tax collectors office, staff are continuing several projects ahead of schedule and working to bring ease-of-use to customers. Theyll make notes for state officials when customers turn in vehicle tags to help prevent inadvertent license revocations. W e really take care of the people. We do things people even dont know about, Ms. Pietruszewski said. Were very efficient and accurate, and we do our jobs very well. In addition to Ms. Pietruszewski and Ms. D avis, this month also saw a third candidate win unopposed. R ebecca Negron, wife of S en. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, also coasted to an early victory. Ms. Negron, a first-time candidate won the District 3 seat on the Martin County School Board this month after no challenger came forward before the end of the qualifying period. One of her goals is salary increases for teachers, according to published r eports. S he will replace Laurie Ga ylord, who is running for superintendent against incumbent Nancy Kline.

The state will provide lenders with matching CAP funds to build a loan loss r eserve account, according to information from the D epartment of Economic O pportunity. B oth forand nonprofit firms are eligible to participate, as long as they operate in the state and have fewer than 500 employees. And on the Treasure C oast, a Stuart-based financial organization is taking the lead in capital access program lending. S eacoast National Bank this month announced it was the first Florida-based bank to participate in CAP. The state of Florida was particularly anxious to get this underway, so it sought out Seacoast National Bank as a Florida-based bank to try to get some traction, said Russ Holland, the banks chief lending officer. D esigned to enable small businesses to expand, CAP offers loans up to $5 million. Borrowers may use the money to cover start-up, working capital, equipment, tenant improvements and other costs. They follow the same procedure as applying for a typical business loan, beginning the process by contacting a participating banks commercial lending department. A pplicants must have strong operations, as the program is not suitable for companies seeking a credit r esolution, bankers said. Anything that helps businesses obtain credit to grow is good, Mr. Holland said. The businesses that seek this program out, they just have to evaluate themselves and see if it makes sense for them. The goal, Mr. Holland said, was to assist profitable businesses that were not able to qualify for conventional loans, because one or two factors, such as being ov erleveraged, prevented them from meeting the stricter criteria. The federal government provides state funding to assist banks with additional coverage for these loans, Mr. Holland said. Between the banks and the state, we have an agreement as to how we can extend credit where there might be an underwriting gap.L oanF rom page A1SoundF rom page A1 cost.

Editors note: This is a list of arrests,not convictions, and all arrestees are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law. When a Vero Beach couple r eturned home, they discovered that someone had burglarized their r esidence. O ddly enough, they found some keys that did not belong to them. Later, Vero Beach police discovered that one of those keys opened the door of a r esidence of the suspect in the burglary. Earlier that evening, police had come into a contact with a man wearing gray sweat pants and having in his hand a pair of pink lace underw ear. When he took the man home, he saw the man dispose of the underwear in a garbage closet. After the burglary in which it was reported that underw ear may have been stolen, the police officer recalled the man with the underwear and r eturned to the residence. It was then that he tried the key, which worked. And he retrieved the underwear, which the burglary victim identified as being her property. She also said the gray sweat pants belonged to her. The man who had been disposing of the underwear was then charged with burglary. He might as well as have left a photo of himself with a confession at the scene.BlotterF rom page A3

A word to bike riders The Martin County Metropolitan Planning Organization has a map for bicycle riders. Therein it states: sidewalks are built for pedestrians, not bicyclists. Bi cyclists argument is and I quote from bicyclists: I am not r iding on the road it is too dangerous. W ell, guess what, join the club. Thats exactly how I feel about you riding on the sidewalk. How did it ever happen that bicyclists have more rights on the sidewalks than pedestrians? They have the full right of the r oad plus they demand the rights of the sidewalks, too. Mar tin County and city of Stuart, it is time to pass some ordinances for the pedestrians, not the bicyclists. O ther towns and cities have that already, since they were confronted with the same growing pains. St Augustine is just one example. No bicyclists on sidewalks in city limits. O ther towns and cities made it very clear pedestrians have the right of way on sidewalks, 100 percent. Period. A link to a site any bicyclist, motorized bicyclist or scooter user needs to go to: www.commutebybike.com/2008/07/09/top-5-rules-for-ridingon-the-sidewalk/.What about ditches?H urricane season is here and the drainage ditches have not been cleared and/or graded. Many have had standing water for months. Pray for another uneventful season. Also, when are we going to be brought into the 21st century by getting a sewer system? How many businesses and potential homeo wners have bypassed Sebastian because of this? Everybodys property value would be higher. M aybe a study of costs should be made then put onto a ballot so the citizens can decide if the costs justify the needed upgrade.Dont like it? Dont watch itThe verbatim ranting of Fox news spin can hardly be called plagiarism. I suppose that his favorite channel is MSNBC, where the speakers (not newscasters or journalists) daily spit out hate for anything Republican. And, by the way, if you hate Fo x so much, why do you watch it? Y ou also seem to have trouble with religion, calling Romney, a millionaire Mormon. My religion does not matter, just as no one elses should, when running for office. The voters will have to use their common sense and knowledge of the people running. By the way, using any of the many fact-check vehicles, you would see that your Speaker of the House, Mr. Reid, is also a Mor mon. Should that alone disqualify him, as well? The next subject in that June 15 edition of Hometown News happened to be on the deficit. The writer seems to be writing in a very intelligent manner, but if he is that smart, he should not base his findings solely on the writing of one person. Going about it that way, one can make numbers do just about anything one wants. Check and compare facts. Dont rely solely on one aspect, just because it is one that you agree with. You or Zfacts may be r ight, but before I would take anything as gospel I would try to r ead/research what other professional economists have to say on the subject. My final offering is about President Obamas speaking on TV He is a great reader; with the Teleprompter in front of him, he does not miss a step; adlibbing, he seems to stop and stutter often looking lost in trying to find words to answer the questions; just an observation. Y ou see, I watch other channels, NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, CNN, but not MSNBC anymore. I dont need to listen to so much hatred instead of news.Im no mouthpieceI am a Republican but I am not a mouthpiece for the party, or any news network. The problem with persons such as y ourself is that you are truly amazed when someone has an individualized thought. Persons such as yourself must use another persons thought, or refer to, and plug an authors book. It s a shame that you lost your 2012 gains (by the way, 2012 is only five-and-a-half months long so far), you lost on paper, y ou didnt lose in your pocket. This is an argument of ideology. Y ou want to pit this against a millionaire Mormon (opposed to a sitting millionaire president) with business skills who knows that the private sector is not doing fine. You believe in big government, and higher taxes, but yet you whine that you lost on gains, so for your sake, good for the D emocrats. I hope you make the gains, just so the D emocrats can raise the capital-gains tax and take 30 percent of the money that you were already taxed on when you purchased your investment (that will be Bushs fault also in y our book). What I read here was me, me, me. So you think Obama is in y our best interest? Well, buddy its about the countrys best interests. If I was willing to give my life as a military combatant for my country, I can give up some of my benefits for the future of our children. That past statement was used by a VFW member when the VFW PAC supported Democrats. As a r esult, the VFW PAC was fired! I watch Fox, I watch MSNBC, I watch CNN, I even read The N ew York Times. Just because you cant balance yourself with total pros and cons, and talk with lips that even David Axelrod would look squeamish about, dont think that of other, more intelligent people, you certainly are calling the kettle black. Good for me on my retirement. Unfortunately for me, it was while I was in the line of duty and was crippled from it. Id r ather be out there working and paying fair taxes. Y ou want a reason not to vote for Obama? Ill give you six trillion reasons. Whose congress did nothing? Which congress was warned about the impending housing bubble that would burst? By which president? So Obama has borrowed the equivalent of 125 years of debt but yet it still is Bushs fault? Y ou are talking out of both sides of your mouth, and you dont even realize it. If you want to debate politics and policy with me try a little more analytical and critical thought as tools to get your point across. All you did was come off as a typical Democrat who is just concerned about their own interests. Get some pride, stop watching Ed Schultz and lose the empty excuses.Why now?Im just wondering why Gov. Scott did not raise the question about non-citizens and ineligible voters when he was r unning for governor. Also, why wasnt that done when George W. Bush was running for president? Why now? Is there anybody out there who has the answer or do we already know the answer?W eird in L.A.N ot all weird ideas originate in California, but many of them do. Los Angeles, the largest city in the nation, has decided to ban plastic bags at supermarket checkout lines. No mention, sadly, of how many plastics industry jobs will be lost. We keep hearing about the need to create more jobs, but C alifornia politicians must be deaf. Los Angeles City Council is now demanding that the ban be widened to extend state wide. We anticipate busy-body environmentalists will soon be lobbying for the same ban here in Florida.How to maintain peaceThe way to maintain peace, stability and freedom is to talk quietly and carry a big stick. When America has military capability and world-wide credibility, it can capitalize on international opportunities and deter tyrannies.

LetterCommunity makes displeasure knownTo the editor: In Ma y, a few homeowners in Highlands Reserve, who wanted to remain anonymous, decided to take it upon themselves to tell this paper how unsafe this community is. W ell this is also my community and I feel that it is time to tell the true story about what goes on here. T wo years ago, my family and I were looking for a new home. We were fortunate enough to stumble upon a developing community in Palm City called Highlands Reserve. We decided to purchase a home here and couldnt have been happier with our decision. We started meeting good people all around us, not only in our community but in the ones that surrounded us as well. Bikers, joggers, and walkers were quick to say hello and introduce themselves. Children became friends and eventually classmates. We enjoyed seeing our new friends from the surrounding communities as they passed by on their bikes or morning jogs just as they enjoyed seeing us in their communities when we passed by. S ometime in early 2011 things started to take a turn. We started noticing the bikers and joggers werent coming by quite as often. We started hearing stories that they were being confronted by a certain individual who told them they were no longer welcome here. Children were being confronted and told to leave the community. Some of the people confronted were actually residents here. Good, honest people were having the police called on them for doing what they had always been allowed to do here. Suddenly, one homeowner had taken matters into his/her own hands. A gate was eventually put up on Robys Way. This gate was voted on by the community, myself included. The only problem was that the gate we all voted on, was not the gate that was put up. One individual homeowner decided to force the hand of the community leaders and have a much different gate installed. This new gate was extended out more than 20 feet forming, for lack of better words, a cattle shoot. This was done to appease this homeowner by allowing him/her to see who was coming in and out of the gate. The cost escalated to more than $8,000 just to provide the extra security this homeowner demanded. Suddenly, anyone coming in or out of this gate had to deal with constant harassment about what their business was here. The police we re being called on a more consistent basis, more than 80 times in the past two years, all from the same address. There were 80 calls to 911, not the non-emergency number. The reason for these calls was anything from a small dog off a leash, to people loitering by the gate. Now to be honest, a few legitimate incidents have occurred here. No neighborhood is 100 percent exempt from this happening, ours included. However, it has not ever been proven that these sporadic crimes were committed by outsiders. For all we know, the individuals who committed these acts could be from our own community. M ost of the violence seems to be targeted toward one specific location in the community. It also happens to be the same area where people are continuously confronted and harassed. Are these really random acts of violence or are people r etaliating against a bully who cant mind their own business? D emands for more security are constantly being made from this anonymous individual. Cameras have been installed at the gate. Police patrols are randomly sent by. Br ighter spotlights are currently planned to be installed. All for one house that seems to have issues with people being upset at them. All of this is coming at the expense of the rest of the homeowners, many of which, have fallen victim to the harassment that comes from simply walking by a gate. This house is not the only one in this area, either. It is just the one that has an owner who feels it is his/her right to tell anyone if they are or are not welcome here.

BusinessJust following orders on dealer fee policyThis column originally appeared in June 2010. Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Ste wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.

It s an extra charge ranging from about $400 to more than $1,500 and averaging about $800 that dealers surprise you with after yo u ve been quoted a lower price. If you want to learn more about this rip off to the carbuyer, just Google dealer fee and Earl Stewart. B attling the dealer fee for y ears, Ive often wondered why so many car dealers, sales managers and sales people could go along with this unfair and deceptive sales practice. I truly believe that most people (including lawyers, politicians and car dealers) are inherently good, honest people. I have to ask myself why an honest person would quote a price that he knows is a lot lower than the real one to a customer. I was watching CNBC and there was a discussion about the Milgram experiment. This psychological experiment was conducted at Yale University by Pr ofessor Stanley Milgram. What motivated him to perform the experiment was to discover why millions of good Germans followed the orders of evil Nazis, such as A dolph Eichman, while conducting the Holocaust during World War II. The experiment involved volunteers called teachers who questioned other people called learners. The teacher asked the learner to correctly match certain pairs of words. The teacher and learner could not see each other, separated by a partition. The experimenter instructed the teacher to push a button sending an electrical shock through the leaner for each incorrect answer. The initial voltage was very low and not enough to cause any discomfort. How ever, the experimenter told the teacher to increase the voltage with each successive wrong answer. The learner and the experimenter were in on the r use, which was that no electricity was actually flowing. The machine was connected to an audio device which emitted r ecorded shouts of pain when the fake voltage r eached higher levels, all the way to 450 volts. The amazing results were that 65 percent of the teachers went all the way to 450 volts, hearing screams of pain. They did this even though they believed their actions were causing intense pain and may also cause permanent bodily damage. Psy chologists ascertained there were two reasons for this. The first is called the Agentic state theory. This is the I was just following orders reason as repeated often in the Nuremburg Tr ials. The essence of obedience consists in the fact that a person comes to view himself as the instrument for carrying out another persons wishes, and he therefore no longer sees himself as responsible for his actions. The second reason psychologists believe accounted for this behavior is the theory of conformism. A person who has neither ability nor expertise to make decisions, especially in a crisis, will leave decision making to the group and its hierarchy. So there you have it. Car sales people follow the orders of their sales managers, who follow the orders of their general manager who follows the orders of the owner of the dealership. B ut why do the owners, the dealers, trick customers with the dealer fee? They arent following anybodys orders. The car dealers fall under the theory of conformism. They feel that as long as everybody else is doing it, it must be OK for me to follow suit. A great local example of this started about two years ago when Fort Pierce Nissan began charging a $799 dealer fee plus a $750 freight fee, totaling $1,549. N apleton Nissan in Riviera Beach picked up on this and matched Fort Pierce by adding $750 freight to their current $795 dealer fee. N ext, Royal Palm Nissan in Wellington followed suit. Then most Nissan dealers from Fort Pierce to Riviera B each add more than $1,500 to the price you are quoted on a Nissan. R ecently, I havent seen advertisements adding the double charge for freight to the dealer fee and I suspect the Attorney Generals office may have had something to do with this. Now you can understand why that smiling salesman can so guiltlessly throw the lever causing 450 volts of electricity to course through y our body which is about the way most car buyers feel when they realized that theyve been deceived. The salesman was just following orders. ON CARSEARL STEWART EATOUT! EATOUT! save money... save money...www.hometowngiftcertificates.com/ 50 % OFF Gift Certificates 50 % OFF Gift Certificates

tion. It is not sensible to talk loudly and carry a little stick.The problem with The problem with progressives, as democrats now like to call themselves since the word liberal has gone out of fashion, is they dont progress. Pr ogressives actually go backwards. Even though they believe that everything they say and do is new; as if preceding generations were simply out of touch, behind the times, or just too old and stupid to know any better, ignoring the fact that its that same senile stupidity that invented democracy as we know it, won two world wars, ov erthrew the evil empire, and gave us all well, life. Pr ogressives suggest that without them the world would go back to the dark days of slavery, stay-at-home moms, Ronald (gulp) Reagan and when the word gay actually meant happy. What they fail to recognize (or perhaps they do but are too far along their socialist agenda to admit it) is the old B iblical admonition: There is nothing new under the sun. Or maybe its the source they object to. Pr ogressives, like their communist cousins, are old news; but theyre just as dangerous and fall for the same propaganda. They wear Che G uevara T-shirts, join labor unions and OWS movements, vote for Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama, and whine. Its the 60s all over again, man, only without the mini-skirts and good music. It s all sex and drugs, and no r ock and roll. Its Fidel Castro in Speedos! And its ugly. As G.K. Chesterton observed decades before P lanned Parenthood, They insist on talking about birth control when they mean less birth and no control. Pr ogressives are atheists in drag, which is precisely why theyre so miserable, militant and confused. Their real problem, of course, is moral relativism. B ut morals are objective and truth and beauty have a name and a face. Its Jesus Christ. And thats what really drives them crazy.

20,000 fewer than today. And as the paper grew, so did the area, making changes that have amazed and impressed area stalwarts, such as Vicki Davis, Mar tin Countys longtime supervisor of elections. When Ms. Davis first won her post in 2004, voters largely came to the polls on Election Day to cast their ballots. N ot anymore. The trends have changed, she said. People are voting by mail and voting early. In 2008, for instance, her office saw a dramatic drop in voter turnout at the polls. C ome Election Day, 69 percent of voters had already cast early ballots, leaving only 31 percent still needing to show up in person to vote. The convenience of being able to receive ballots at home, educate themselves about candidates, mail in their votes and track them online or by calling the supervisor of elections office has proven an attractive option for many of todays voters. The growing population also meant changes in the political landscape. Ev en though the county r emains largely Republican, with more than 50 percent of registered voters affiliated with the GOP, officials are noticing a new trend involving tens of thousands of residents. Ab out 18,000 voters are currently registered with no party affiliation. The reason, offered Ms. Davis, might be migration from the north, where voters in some states we re used to declaring their parties on Election Day, instead of prior to casting ballots, as required by Florida law. R acially, the area has also grown more integrated in the last decade, as groups such as the East Stuart Historical Society, Stuart Heritage and Martin County H istorical Society raise awareness about its rich history, said historian Jay Thompson. I v e found out that young people of today are finally r ealizing that we have a great culture to appreciate, and have a renewed sense of pride in their culture, Mr. Thompson said. E ven many of the buildings that were erected never showed any signs of the black community, for example. But Stuart Heritage and the Martin County Historical Society have done a tremendous job of bringing forward that heritage in the last decade. Otherwise, it was a one-sided history. Over the last 10 years, there has been a definite shift. C oncerted efforts to spread brochures and other literature to civic groups and other organizations have created awareness about cultural celebrations, such as Juneteenth, a holiday which observes the two additional years of slavery blacks in some Confederate states endured after the signing of the Emancipation Pr oclamation. The last decade has seen an expansion of the administrations efforts to focus on development outside the downtown area. The trolley, for instance, can now take visitors to East Stuart and along newly refurbished areas enhanced by the Community Redevelopment Agency, Mr. Thompson said. The decade has also brought a major change for the areas constitutional officers. A bout seven years ago, the local court house was home to the clerk of courts, tax collector, property appraiser and supervisor of elections. All, but the clerk, have moved to new offices. The supervisor of elections office, for instance, has now streamlined its operations from three locations to one on Martin Luther King B oulevard in Stuart. Before its move, its base was at the courthouse, while it housed election equipment at the B&A Flea Market, kept r ecords at the old jail and had to use jury rooms or libraries to train poll workers. E verything is now under one roof, said Ms. Davis, who took office in January 2005. The extra room at the courthouse did not necessarily mean officials there saw a spike in crime. In fact, Martin County has r emained relatively safe with a crime rate that has held steady, increasing less than 1 percent in the first half of 2011, according to the latest information from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, which tracks murder, sexual offenses, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, and motor vehicle theft, among other crimes, in its annual statewide index. O ther statistics also paint a bright picture of life in the county. The Business Development Board of Martin County shows the area has grown into a community where r esidents have a vested interested in their neighborhoods, with nearly 80 percent owning the homes in which they live. A bout 60 percent of adults have at least some college education or a higher degree. And Martin County has emerged as one of the most prosperous in the state, targeting companies in science and other fields that offer high-paying jobs. B ut residents, such as P alm Citys Richard Wallace, said infrastructural changes, cultural shifts and economic developments have made for a decade of dramatic highs and lows. W e re talking about a time when we went from excess to having nothing, to trying to get back on our feet again, said Mr. Wallace, a construction worker who lost his job and was out of work for three months. H is industry was perhaps hardest hit in the local economy, coming to a virtual standstill in Martin County. The number of building permits issued at the close of the last decade, compared to the beginning, dropped about 90 percent. B ut Martin County managed to hold onto one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state at 8.1 percent as of last April, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The arts, too, saw dramatic ebbs and flows, and community theaters struggled to stay afloat. After nearly 42 seasons, the Barn Theatre, the areas oldest community playhouse, was in dire straits with a crumbling roof, busted air conditioning and insufficient funds for its productions, said president Fr ancine Beckstead. S taging avant-garde productions and sold-out performances of Biloxi Blues, T he Cemetery Club and The Boys Next Door was not enough to keep the doors open. A tough economy and waning attendance threatened the same fate for the Ba rn that Shiloh Theatrical C ompany suffered when that group was forced to permanently draw the curtains. W e were doing some very edgy things but we knew we could only be successful if we could get butts in the seats, Ms. Beckstead said. By the time Hometown N ews celebrates its 10th anniversary this month, the Ba rn will also toast its own survival in the county it has called home for more than four decades.

MARTIN COUNTY Mar tin County Hospital officially opened its doors on March 8, 1939, with a ceremony featuring hospital authorities and the philanthropists who helped make it a reality. Mo re than 70 years later, Mar tin Health System continues to provide exceptional health care services to residents of Martin and St. L ucie counties. Mar tin Health provides a continuum of care that includes preventative, primary and acute hospital care, as well as cancer and cardiac care, wellness and r ehabilitation services. M uch has changed since the 23-bed hospital originally opened its doors on the banks of the St. Lucie River. A ccording to the organizations first annual report, published Feb. 26, 1940, the hospital and its staff of 17 admitted seven patients on its first day of operation. In its first 11 months, Martin C ounty Hospital admitted 389 patients, including 36 births. As the area has grown through the years, Martin H ealth has expanded to meet the communitys needs. T oday, Martin Health features two hospitals with a total of 344 beds and 12 locations throughout Martin and St. Lucie counties, providing acute, primary and preventive care. A third acute-care hospital, Tradition Medical Center, is scheduled to open in w est Port St. Lucie in early 2014. And Martin Health is partnering with HealthS outh on a 34-bed comprehensive medical rehabilitation hospital that will open in south Stuart in mid-2013. In 2011, Martin Health had approximately 19,500 admissions and more than 82,500 visits to its three emergency departments. To accommodate that need, Mar tin Health employs approximately 3,000 associates, features a medical staff of 375 affiliated physicians and has 850 volunteers serving on its auxiliary. Through the years, Martin H ealth has been committed to providing access to quality care, a mission that has been recognized nationally. Mar tin Health is a seventime winner of the Thomson R euters 100 Top Hospitals A ward, has twice been named a Thomson Reuters 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals award winner and has r eceived numerous recognitions for the quality of care it provides. W e are proud of the role Mar tin Health System has played in this community for more than 70 years of service to residents of Martin and St. Lucie counties, said Mark E. Robitaille, president and chief executive officer. M artin Health was created due to the vision and compassion of local citizens who recognized there was a dire need for health care services here. Today, that partnership with the community continues and our mission of providing access to the highest quality health care services remains as strong as ever. As the communitys needs have grown, so has the breadth of Martin Healths service. Highlights include: 1942: The Martin Memor ial Auxiliary began serving as volunteers for the hospital. 1963: The hospital expanded to 78 beds. 1970: The hospital expanded to 120 beds. 1976: The hospital expanded to 216 beds. 1979: The hospital expanded to 252 beds. 1983: The Martin Memor ial Foundation was created. S ince then, it has raised more than $100 million, helping to provide access to care for residents of the Tr easure Coast. Martin M emorial also first started offering services in St. Lucie C ounty, with an urgent care facility on Port St. Lucie B oulevard. 1992: Martin Memorial H ospital became Martin M emorial Health Systems. The primary hospital became Martin Memorial M edical Center and Martin M emorial Hospital South, a second facility, opened its doors. 1995: Martin Memorial opened a facility in St. Lucie W est. 1999: The Martin Memor ial Cancer Center opened. It was renamed the Robert and Carol Weissman Cancer C enter in 2005. 2003: The emergency department at Hospital S outh was expanded. 2004: Martin Memorial r eceived authorization to begin construction on a heart center. The cancer centers radiation-oncology department expanded to St. L ucie West. 2006: The Frances Langford Heart Center opened its doors after a 20-year battle to bring open-heart and interventional cardiology to Mar tin County. 2009: The Martin Memor ial Emergency Center at St. L ucie West opens. Martin M emorial also begins its first collaborative research study with the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute F lorida, a life sciences organization located at the Tr adition Center for Innovation in west Port St. Lucie. 2010: The Back and S pine Center opens on the campus of Martin Memorial M edical Center, providing comprehensive back and spine care. 2011: Martin Memorial H ealth Systems becomes Mar tin Health System. 2012: In March, Martin H ealth breaks ground on Tr adition Medical Center, a 90-bed hospital in west Port S t. Lucie.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, June 22, 2012 Martin County A13 901 SEMonterey Commons Blvd., Stuart, Florida 34996 The problem may be Fibromyalgia, and there is a treatment for it now. Realtors merge to form new partnershipTREASURE COAST Three generations of two pioneer real estate families have combined their history into the largest regional r eal estate company on the Tr easure Coast. C oldwell Banker Paradise Ed Schlitt Realtors ( www.FLColdwellBanker.co m ) merged with Hoyt C. M urphy Realtors. The merger created nine offices spanning all of the Indian River Lagoon area from Martin C ounty through Brevard C ounty. The company now consists of a dedicated team of 190 sales professionals, r ental associates and property managers, and a staff of 30. The combined companies want to recognize their long history and will be marketing under Coldwell B anker Paradise Ed Schlitt R ealtors in Indian River and Br evard Counties and under C oldwell Banker Paradise Hoyt Murphy Realtors in St. L ucie and Martin Counties. Br okers/owners Steven Schlitt and his sister, Linda Schlitt Gonzalez and Hoyt C P at Murphy Jr. will be the management team guiding the combined company. The original company was founded by Ed and Mar guerite Schlitt in 1953 in Vero Beach. The Ed Schlitt Agency was founded as a real estate and insurance company in the Mews B uilding, which still stands on 14th Avenue. Ed Schlitt moved the business two years later to the 1300 block of 20th Av enue, now the Irish American Club in Vero B each. Eds brothers, Bob and Louis, joined him and formed a business group in the late 1950s. Over the past 60 years, the r eal estate market has changed dramatically. When the company was founded, there was no multiple list service in the area. R ealtors held their listings in secret to keep competing r eal estate brokers from to selling them. It was not unusual for a seller to list with multiple brokers r esulting in a half-dozen for sale signs in each yard. Ed Schlitt realized this was an inefficient system. He worked with other local r eal estate brokers to establish the Indian River County multiple listing service. In the early 1970s, Ed Schlitt helped to organize the building of the first two condominiums in Indian River County. He was instrumental in procuring developers to build The O cean Chateau condominium and invested in the project, as well as being the primary selling broker for the condominiums in the Ro yal Riviera in the Vero B each. As the business continued to grow, the selling of r eal estate became more highly technical. Buyers from outside of the area we re learning about this piece of paradise along the Tr easure and Space Coasts. F or people to feel more comfortable investing in r eal estate, Ed Schlitt believed he needed to partner with a brand known for its integrity and real estate savvy. He joined Coldwell B anker in 1983 and the Ed Schlitt Agency became known as Coldwell Banker Ed Schlitt. When Sears Corporation bought Coldwell Banker and Allstate Insurance, it was necessary to split the r eal estate and insurance divisions of the company. Ed Schlitt continued the r eal estate brokerage business, and Bob and Louis Schlitt took over the insurance company. Through the decades, markets rose and fell in continuous business cycles. R ampant inflation followed by the gas embargos in the 1970s led to a crash in the r eal estate market in 1973 and 1974, which left buildings uninhabited and deteEd and Marguerite SchlittPhoto courtesy of Schlitt family By Carol WoodmanseeF or Hometown News See R EALTORS, A15

B ut on blind faith, I said ye s, and here we are today. In this capitalistic, entrepreneurial-driven economy, in which most businesses dont make it to five years, we are celebrating our 10y ear anniversary. In the very competitive media business, I dont think any of the local news outlets, some with 100 years on us, bet on H ometown News surviving a year, let alone 10. The journalist in me would prefer to think of the newspaper as providing a noble and necessary service, so important in this democratic society that the press is often referred to as The Fourth Estate, the unofficial branch on par with the executive, legislative and judicial branches of U.S. government. B ut newspapers are also a business. We have the right to a free press in this country, but somebody has to pay for it. As a news organization, we worry about getting headlines right and writing fair and accurate stories. B ut as a business, we also worry about the fluctuating cost of goods (newsprint, gas for our delivery trucks) and availability of services (how do we publish without electricity after a hurricane?) Over the last decade, I have gained a new appreciation for the small business ow ner, his struggles and challenges, as well as triumphs and successes. Thats why we invited local businesses that have also made it in the last 10 years to celebrate with us, and share their stories with you in this edition. Also in this edition, weve invited officials in the markets we serve along F loridas East Coast to recap whats changed and shaped their communities in these 10 years in local history. I cant tell the H ometown News story as well as the papers founding publisher, S teve Erlanger, who wrote the company history some y ears ago. The account below, part history, part proud pronouncement, and part declaration of the brightness of the future, is the story of our newspaper company. I hope you find it as inspiring a piece as I do every time I read it: I n September of 2001, longtime Fort Pierce r esident and local businessman Vernon Smith contacted publisher Steve Erlanger about starting a newspaper company. Ver non was not happy with the print media situation on the Treasure C oast. He thought one of the countrys fastestgrowing markets should have more than one voice and more than one option when it came to providing news and offering advertising opportunities. O n June 14, 2002, H ometown News debuted with what has come to be known as the largest launch of a newspaper company in the history of the industry: three separate editions, including Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce and Martin County with 65,000 circulation and 22 full-time employees, who we re all about to embark on an amazing journey. I n the next four years, H ometown News was publishing in 19 different markets with a little more than 500,000 in circulation. H ometown News could now lay claim to having the fastest growth of a newspaper companyin the history of newspapers. I n our very first year, H ometown News was selected by two leading national community newspaper associations as one of the top three community newspapers in the country. We were also honored as being the top award-winning community newspaper group in the country. W e were voted the No. 1 community newspaper in America in our second year, and have been in the top three nearly every year since then. We were also honored as the only community newspaper in history to be voted No. 1 by both national newspaper associations in the same year. S tatewide, we have been honored as being the top award-winning community newspaper group by the C ommunity Papers of F lorida seven of the 10 years we have been in existence. Over the past few years, H ometown News has adapted to the changing economy. We have tightened up, gotten smarter about how we do business, combined some editions and focused our efforts in the counties that matched our model. We converted from saturation delivery to a subscription home delivery model. With more than 150,000 subscribers out of our circulation of 267,000, H ometown News is one of the largest subscription papers in the nation. W ith the changes we have made over the years, H ometown News is primed to move into the future as a lean, mean, newspaper. The strength of community newspapers has increased, while the competition is waning. Good, quality local community news will always be important to the r esidents of our cities and towns, and Hometown Ne ws will be here to provide that valuable information. O ur success can be attributed to one main factor: our people.

We do the job right, at the best price without sacrificing quality! T attoo studio owner has seen good, bad timesWhen I first arrived in Fort Pierce in 1978, Interstate95 ended in Fort Pierce. Along with my late ex-husband, we opened the first and only tattoo studio SkinArt Tattoo on U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce. H urricane David came through and the protection was using masking tape and plywood on the jalousie windows. S hopping back then was at the Piggly Wiggly and KMar t. Commerical rent was only $250 a month on U.S.1 back then. We we re featured in the M iami Herald in 1979. Later, we moved our shop to Jensen Beach where everything was quiet after 5 p.m. S ummertime was slow, hot and after the snowbirds left, it was business with the locals. There were hardly any cars on U.S. 1 from Fort Pierce to Stuart. Then we moved to open the first tattoo studio in Port S t. Lucie. There wasnt a St. Lucie W est and Prima Vista Bouleva rd ended at the Turnpike Br idge. O ur clients were from 18 to 70 years old. The shop name was changed to Skin-art tattoo boutique and was painted pink since the clientele had been changing. I also opened Custom Thangs in Port St. Lucie. This was a bike and hot rod shop on Village Green Drive. I appeared in many television, newspaper and magazine stories. When I was at Tattoo World people were starting to ask more for the permanent make-up. This was due to the news media with Dear Abby trashing it as she did tattooing. It made people more curious, so they wanted to know more about it. Doing a lot of consultations and educating the public and media through newspaper and magazine articles, I decided to break out on my o wn and open Always Perfect Per manent Make-Up on Pr ima Vista Boulevard in 1993. I introduced the medical field to the many benefits permanent make-up had to offer. Working in my studio on my own, I applied eyebrows, eyeliner, full lips, including but not limited to applying areola and color r econstruction. Now my clients were coming up in age, from 70 to 94 for permanent eyebrows due to eyesight problems, shaking hands and medical issues. I opened another tattoo studio Artistic Designs and later with my son Beyond R eality Tattoo. Po rt S t. Lucie business was booming and people were moving here and building and buying homes. More commercial shopping centers were being built. Then the hurricanes started hitting us in 2004 and shook us up. The businesses we re closing and people we re losing their homes. The road construction on Pr ima Vista kept dragging out. Always Perfect Permanent M ake-Up made it 17 years on Pr ima Vista and with the rent climbing to almost $1,000 for 600 square feet off of U.S.1. I moved my studio to historical Fort Pierce and r estored a house that was built in 1910 and painted it three shades of pink where it is still open for business. I guess Ive been busy in this area over the years. Ive been through the good times and the slow times.By Linda Lady Fish FrankF or Hometown NewsHTNF rom page A1 V isit us at: www. .comOL

The days of a welcoming Palm City neighborhood have been taken from us by one individual homeowner. However, this is not the desire of a majority of this community. T wo weeks ago, more than 20 homeo wners met at my house to discuss the article this paper had printed about us. We we re not asked to contribute to this article, only two to three individuals who wanted to remain anonymous, were allowed to give their opinions about what it is like to live here. We as a community were hurt by what this article said and felt that enough was enough and it was time to take a stand. We are tired of our friends in communities around us being locked out. One individual homeowner does not have the right to speak for the rest of us. H ighlands Reserve was once a welcoming community. I hope someday soon those days will r eturn and I invite all of Palm City to come by and experience how great it is to live here. J oe Swisher P alm City r iorating. But by the late 70s, home and condominium sales were booming again. The old condos were r efurbished and new condos built. In the 1980s, high interest r ates drove down market prices and caused many savings and loans to collapse. Once again, the market quickly recovered in the late 80s. The current real estate r ecession, which started in 2006, is only one of a series that have come and gone. The real estate market is currently recovering, and will once again become r obust as it has in past cycles.

First and foremost, I would like to wish H ometown News a very happy 10-year anniversary! It seems like just yesterday that the first edition ran off the presses to the delight of Mar tin and St. Lucie County r esidents. I am proud to have been a part of this for the past 10 years. M ost of the readers know me as the writer of the Gar den Nook, but prior to that I did a weather column known as Joes DiscoWeather Central Time Capsule (say that three times fast). This was a column that took y ou, the reader, back in time with local weather events that happened many years ago. Some of the events w ent as far back as the 1800s. Let me rewind just a bit. As a kid, I always had an intense interest in the w eather. I was never satisfied to watch the w eather report and see what it was going to do. I wanted to know why it was going to r ain or snow. I started to r ead and study about w eather systems, fronts and above all hurricanes. To make the story a little shorter, actually a lot shorter, all this led me to the creation of Joes Disco W eather Central (now hometownweather.net) in 1999. Although the website was a great outlet, I still wanted to share my interest even further. My opportunity came when Carol, my wife, was just starting with H ometown News and she suggested that I do their w eather. I thought about it and eventually decided to take the challenge. Carol then set up an appointment with Tammy Raits, managing editor of H ometown Ne ws. When we had our first meeting, we tossed around different ideas and came up with the idea of talking about past weather events along with current forecasts. The main idea was to have the weather done from a local standpoint. I must add that Tammy was my inspiration. It was her inspiration that made the column a success. In 2005, we decided to shift gears and that led me to a new challenge to proudly write the garden column, now called The Garden N ook, for the paper. S ince I had 27 years of horticulture experience under my belt, it was an exciting transition. Ten y ears later I am still writing the Garden Nook and I also ow n a remote computer r epair company. My interest in the weather and horticulture is just as strong as ever, if not stronger. H ometown News is one of the greatest local papers in America and my wish is for their continued grand success!

TREASURE COAST F lorida loses more children under age 5 to drowning every year than any other state in the nation. Hundreds more experience near-drowning tragedies that can cause permanent health problems and developmental delay. The Department of Children and Families investigates accidental drownings to determine if neglect was a factor. In all cases, drowning is preventable. Children do not drown when someone is dedicated to watching them. P arents and caregivers should remember that nothing is more important than keeping your eyes on a child in the water, said D avid Wilkins, DCF secretary. A child can drown in less than 5 minutes. DCF and the Department of Health are partnering to prevent drownings and save childrens lives. About 5,000 books that teach children how to be safe around water are being distributed to children at safety events this summer, and more than 20,000 brochures with tips on drowning prevention are being handed out to parents and other caregivers. U nintentional drowning is the leading cause of death for children under age 4 in Florida. More than two-thirds of these deaths occurred in swimming pools. However, drownings also occur in canals, the ocean, bathtubs, toilets and buckets of water. Y oung children can drown in less than 2 inches of water and in less than 5 minutes, the time it takes to use the restroom or answer a telephone. Many parents have only left their child alone for a few minutes before drowning. I urge Floridians and visitors to supervise children closely and keep toddlers within arms reach at swimming pools, said J ohn Armstrong, Floridas surgeon general. P ool safety is everyones r esponsibility across layers of protection, which include supervision, barriers (such as alarms on doors, pool fences and locking gates), and readiness to call 911 in case of emergency. F ollow the water safety tips below and never, ever leave a child unattended in or near any water. Install fencing and other barriers around pools and check regularly to make sure they are working properly. Make sure doors have alarms and child-proof locks. Adults should learn to swim and also teach their children how to swim. Children from non-swimming households are eight times more likely to be at r isk of drowning. Remove toys, especially r iding toys, away from the pool area. Children can fall off of riding tools like bicycles and into the water. Never allow a child to be around any water unsupervised. That includes bathtubs, buckets, ponds, ditches, canals, pools, ri vers, oceans, hot tubs and more. If there are multiple adults watching children in the pool, designate one adult at a time as the official water watcher, to keep a constant eye on the children. Never allow a child to supervise another child near or in water. Make sure children stay away from pool drains. Learn first aid and CPR for children to use in the case of an emergency.

Well sort of a quiet w eek on the fishing scene, not sure why the fish are home but not a lot of anglers. S eas off shore have been a little sporty and this mornings 10-mph wind may have dampened a few plans, but still it has been a beautiful week. Lets start on the surf edge. Whiting and there has been a good catch, one just had to look for an area that was free of weeds. Keep in mind, weeds offer a lot of cover for our fish but I am sure glad when it leaves, S nook, tarpon, permit and more will be there. S till the blues early with a very narrow bite time, but plenty to make up for. Big whiting and croaker, something to take home but the snook are there with them, so before you use one as bait, take the barbs off the hook for an easy release. S till waiting to hear about the tarpon. We know they are rolling and we have had a few pick up a bait just not the hook and no, I dont know how they do it. Per mit again this week on sand fleas. Anglers looking for pompano found them with a long cast, not a lot, but still worth the effort and even you are not fishing the surf is the sight we all came to be with. Bring your coffee and come on down. You will not be disappointed. Offshore not a weed line or a color line and the dolphin are just as scarce, scattered, one here one there. This is the time when y ou need to take dinner to the fish. Trolled Bally is preferred, if you do find them, then live baits but do not wait for them to find y ou. Bonita a plenty; now is the time to think about strip baits for fall. Get them while y ou can. B ottom fishing continues to be the place to fill the box from 50 feet out. Lanes, muttons, yellow tail and gags not to mention the AJs and the cobia. Where is the pitch rod? Still plenty of C obia coming to the boat or following your catch to the surface; pay attention. River anglers pick out a spot and be there before sun up throwing a top water bait or a chugger, a bait that makes noise, one that will get some attention. After the sun has been up for an hour or two the fish will move to deeper water. Trout and r eds are on this list. When these fish move to deeper water soft rubber or a suspending bait will find them, slow down. Turn the motor off and drift to the channel markers. Shrimp on a jig head, the triple tail love the warm sun, and the tarpon, who knows, but low light seems to work best. Ye s, it is warm and the sun is bright and that is what I love about south Florida. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

As I pen this column, I am sitting in my cozy recliner. Next to me sits my father. We are awaiting the start of the United States Open Championship. This F athers Day weekend promises to be special. In addition to my father visiting, I have my oldest daughter here, as well. While the last thing she or her younger sister want to do is watch golf with us, they still appreciate time spent with dad and pop pop. I hope we get to see a great tournament. Of golfs three majors, the U.S. Open is my third favorite. I put the Masters atop my list, with the O pen Championship a close second. What drives me crazy with our national championship is the silliness of the United States Golf Association and its obsession with making par the yardstick by which we measure a golfer. At this, their signature event, the USGA usually seems hell-bent on making a mockery of the course and the game. I agree that any true championship should involve a stern test of mind, body and skill. It should require great ball striking, a little luck and mental toughness. The U.S. Open certainly provides all of these. I'm all for challenging the best players in the world. But what is more entertaining? A Sunday filled with double bogeys, 5-foot putts that roll 20 yards off of cement-hard greens, rough a foot from the fairway that is so deep y ou can hardly see your feet much less find your golf ball? Or the final r ound of the Masters? To the stodgy, mustUSGA should let go of par, let players talents shine GOLFJAMES STAM MER See G OLF, B9 Diving for a return Shannon OConnor/photography internDeAnna Mendocha of Martin County dives for a return during the Lifes A Beach volleyball tournament Saturday, June 16 at South Fork High School.

have-their-necktie-tootight men of the USGA, there is nothing quite like watching six or eight guys lose the tournament and one guy hang on. M e? I prefer having three or five guys making great shots to win it. Ye s, the USGA rightfully wants to determine the best ov erall player in the field. The brass in Far Hills, N.J., feels, as do many of us, that hitting the ball where you are supposed to should be r ewarded. Accuracy should be just as important as length. In fact, most players this week at the Olympic Club in San Francisco will hit their driver only three or four times during a round. I will give them credit for finally going with what is called graduated rough. This means the guy who misses the fairway by a foot doesnt find himself in the same deep, thick stuff as the guy who missed by 20 yards. Dont get me wrong, the r ough is still brutal, but it is setup to hurt the truly wayward not just anyone who misses the fairway. What I dislike the most about our national championship is the way the USGA and many recreational golfers seem to gloat at watching the suffering that the courses setup causes. A few years back they we re almost giddy that not a single golfer shot under par for the final round. Do y ou really think these guys are that untalented? Or is the course simply too tricked up and unplayable? Last years 16-under-par score from champion Rory Mc Ilro y must have had their heads close to exploding. The USGA needs to come to grips with par not being r elevant. It needs to learn to accept that birdies are part of golf, and that setting up the golf course to prevent them is asinine. It becomes silly when the best players in the world cannot chip a ball onto the green and have it stay there, cannot hold the green with a wedge from the fairway and are putting the ball off the green. S et up a stern, but fair test of golf and let the elements and the players skill determine what the winning score will be. I nstead, we have a group trying to have the same score win every year without regard to the talent or conditions. I hope that as I sip my favorite cold beverage this w eekend while watching the U.S. Open, Im treated to some great golf shots and not a cataclysm of one train wreck after another. In the end it wont really matter, as Ill be relaxing with my father, my kids, a cold beer in my hand and steaks on the grill. Heres to y ou, dads. Hope your w eekend is as good as mine.
