In the last seven years, area women have been seeking medical care earlier in their pregnancies, a move that officials said bodes well for local babies, said Scott Berry, executive director of Martin County H ealthy Start Coalition, a nonprofit that offers support and education for pregnant women and infants. The later women get into prenatal care, the higher the risk of low birth w eights," Mr. Berry said. "L ow er birth weights mean higher risk of dying in the first year of life."

B ut the trauma care team that took care of her does. That was the day the Vero Beach r esident was run over by a car and r ushed to Lawnwood Regional M edical Center with a broken femur, exploded spleen, two broken r ibs, a damaged liver and a collapsed lung. "I t left me really damaged inside," she said. "I don't remember that day, or the two weeks afterwards." What she does remember are all the doctors, nurses and other health professionals who came and visited her daily during her recovery. She spent three weeks in the hospital before she was transferred to a r ehabilitation facility. No w, eight months later, she sat smiling with her family during the Tr auma Survivor Reunion held at Lawnwood Hospital on Nov. 15. W ith survivors and the care teams in one place, hellos and hugs were exchanged. Tulips were also given to every survivor, to symbolize a life that has been altered due to trauma. "I t' s an honor to be with so many people that we've touched," said Thomas Ellison, clinical director and vice president of the trauma center. The trauma center at Lawnwood H ospital is one of 13 level two centers in the state and provides care to the most critically injured patients in Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties. The center opened in 2009, and since that time has served more Relay to raise money to fight cancer MARTIN COUNTY H undreds of people around the county are gearing to walk a day and night in support of those battling a life-threatening illness.

"It's an opportunity to bring them all together to celebrate survivors, remember those we 'v e lost and fight back as a community." S ince October the group has held kick-off celebrations in Jensen Beach, Hobe S ound and Stuart to build enthusiasm for the three r elays planned for next April and May. B eginning in April, participants can select a city and date of their choosing to participate in an 18-hour walk to build solidarity and show support for cancer patients and survivors. R elay For Life of South Ma r tin County, chaired by T om and Ronda Balling, will begin at noon on Saturday, Ap r il 20 and continue through 6 a.m. on Sunday, Ap r il 21. The Jensen Beach Relay F or Life, chaired by Kimberly Perron, will be held the following weekend, kicking off on Friday, April 26 at 6 p .m. and ending on Saturday, April 27 at noon. The final event, the Central Martin County Relay For Life, chaired by Paula Richmond, is set for May 4-5. Organizers expect as many as 500 people in about 50 teams to participate locally. The 18 hours are symbolic of a cancer's patient journey through cancer, with the day and the night representing the hope, darkness, loneliness, questions, illness progress and everything they go through," Ms. H enkes said. "They wonder how they're going to make it through the night. That happens to the participants who walk through the night. They get tired; they want to stop, but then the sun rises." C ancer survivors and their families are honored guests at each of the events, who organizers encourage to participate and tell their stor ies. "P eople who have been newly diagnosed can share in the hope that they, too, can beat this," Ms. Henkes said.

P lanning Council hosted the work group meetings, so r esidents and planners could discuss a 50-year plan for seven counties in Southeast Florida. The groups are developing Seven50, also called S outheast Florida's Prosperity Plan, for Martin, St. L ucie, Indian River, Monroe, M iami-Dade, Broward and P alm Beach counties. Once complete, the plan will serve as a guide for building more diverse communities with stronger economies. It focuses on education, workforce and economic development, environmental protection, climate r esilience, preserving natur al resources, agriculture, creating healthy communities, culture, inclusive r egional leadership and equity, protecting community assets, and controlling development patterns in housing and transportation, said Maria Salazar, a marketer working with facilitators. F unded through a grant from the U.S. Department of H ousing & Urban Development's sustainable communities initiative, the meetings aimed to get residents thinking of development as a decades-long prospect. "I t was great to see how people kept focus on the notion that this is a longterm plan, and that we need to take charge of our future," said Marcela Camblor-Cutsaimanis, project director of the sustainable communities initiative at Southeast F lorida Regional Partnership, a collaboration of hundreds of public, private and civic groups from the southeast Florida region. "It's important to set aside our differences as individual counties if we want to become resilient." Among the leading priorities emerging from the discussions were calls for a clear vision about how each county should develop its r esources to attract new industries and diversify its economy. Among the strategies were steps to attract firms engaged in research and biological sciences to bring high-salary jobs that complement the region's agriculture and real estate sectors. Tr ansportation also emerged as a chief concern, with participants repeatedly calling for broader public transit and a transportation model that connected the r egion. In Ma r tin County, the top ideas included suggestions to focus on healthcare, broadband, education and energy to gain a competitive advantage. In I ndian River County, r esidents were intent on preserving the area's wetlands, beaches, lagoons and other natural resources, as we ll as maintaining its urban development plan. When polled, St. Lucie C ounty residents said they wanted diversity in housing, and a stronger culture of civic engagement. "W e challenged those in attendance to think about not only what they wanted for themselves, but also for y ounger generations and even those beyond that," Ms. Camblor-Cutsaimanis said. "People thought beyond their own needs." F or more information and r ecaps of the workshops,visit www.Seven50.org.

B ut as she looks back on her seven-year career with much pride, there's one thing she is most looking forward to in the days ahead. "I loved my job, but I am r eally anxious to sleep," she said. "The stress is so great that I didn't sleep very much. I'm looking forward to sleeping." M uch of the stress came from repeated challenges to a pioneering woman in a department and career field historically reserved for men. "I have mixed emotions. It 's been a wonderful career," Chief Sunderman said. "No matter where you go, with every promotion, y ou constantly have to prove yourself. And everywhere else you go outside of y our department family, questions (arise) about whether you can do the job, instead of looking at your credentials. Whether they say it or not, you can tell people are doubtful. You constantly have to show all the facts and all the figures." Chief Sunderman rose through the ranks during a 22-year career with the city. S he joined the department after serving in the U.S. Na vy, and started as a probationary firefighter in 1990. S he said some of her male colleagues were helpful and supportive along the way. Among them was Assistant Fi re Chief David Dyal, who will become interim chief following her retirement. B ut several others questioned her abilities. The natural instinct is for men to be helpers of women," she said. "And if something is wrong, they want to tell you how to fix it. They think they can always do the job better than you. As a chief you're constantly being challenged." One of the biggest challenges came when Stuart firefighter Wayne Duffy accused the chief of sexual harassment and of punitively denying him a promotion in 2006. The city sided with Chief S underman, but members of the local firefighters union rallied behind Mr. D uffy. That was a lot of gameplaying," Chief Sunderman said. Of course, I couldn't speak because I was the chief. Before this happened, 80 percent of the union had told me he needed to be fired. But they stuck up for him and wanted to protect him. It was rocky, but it was because of playing a game. That's how the union does it. The union is very possessive of protecting its own." In the final days of the chief's term, union leaders said they've enjoyed a good r elationship with the department's leader. "E veryone's reaction was shock when we initially heard (she was retiring). Ev eryone supported her and thought she was good for the department," said Lt. To ry B auser, president of the City of Stuart Local 2411, the firefighter union. The department supports her and always has supported her. We wish her well in her future endeavors, and we know that she will do w ell in whatever she decides to get into." Chief Sunderman, who submitted her 90-day retirement notice on Sept. 30, said she is considering several new ventures, including teaching at the National Fi re A cademy, as well as some consultant work. "I have to open other doors, and God will show me where to go," she said. D espite her decision to change directions, Chief S underman encouraged women considering a career in firefighting to pursue the option and make strides in the profession. "I think, through my history, at least 80 percent of my troops have really cared for me and believed in me," Chief Sunderman said. "It's not a popularity contest. I (did) it to protect my community and the citizens."

That year, it ranked 47th out of 67 counties for its infant mortality rate, which measures the number of babies who make it to their first birthday. B ut 2011 saw the county move to one of the top in the state, with the eighthlowest infant mortality r ate, according to the F lorida Department of H ealth. O ut of 1,200 births, five babies died in 2011, compared to 11 in 2005, the r eport showed. As the percentage of mothers who are getting into care early increases, so does the percentage of babies born at a healthy birth weight," Mr. Berry said. "And as the percentage of babies born at low birth weight decreases, the infant mortality rate has decreased, as well. You have to have good prenatal care in the community." He althy Start Coalition worked to achieve this goal by encouraging pregnant women to seek early care. S ince its inception in 1992, the group has worked with more than 19,000 expectant mothers throughout the county, said Evelyn Lespinasse, a marketing re presentative for the organization. Last year alone, the group served 1,331 clients. A dministrators said mothers are getting the message about the importance of care in the first trimester to mitigate pregnancy risks. Also in 2011, about 72 percent of pregnant women in Martin County r eceived medical care within the first three months of pregnancy, compared to 56 percent in 2005, the lowest rate in the state at that time. "O ur performance has dramatically improved," Mr. Berry said.

Children in more than a dozen countries will receive the boxes donated here on the Treasure Coast, including those in Belize, Ecuador, G hana, India and Madagascar. In all, children in more than 100 countries will r eceive the shoeboxes. C ollection sites in Fort Pierce, Stuart, Port St. Lucie and Okeechobee received approximately 14,000 shoeboxes from the community. V olunteers take the shoeboxes and place them in larger shipping boxes, where they travel to a processing center in Atlanta, one of 11 in the United S tates. Last year, the organization collected 7 million shoeboxes," Ms. Grossmann said. "This year, O peration Christmas Child will see the delivery of 100 million shoeboxes." Ms. Grossmann is not only active in collecting the boxes, but in distributing them, as well. "I will be traveling to K enya at the end of April to help hand out boxes there," she said. At the collection site in Fo rt Pierce, more than 900 shoeboxes were donated last year. This year, shipping cartons sat stacked by the door as a call came in that 200 more shoeboxes we re on their way from donors. "W e are seeing more and more people donating," said Carolyn Swayze, a volunteer for the collection site at Indian River Presbyterian Church in Fort Pierce. "It's wonderful to see it at this level."

In response to a ranterU pon reading the rant of non-educated people, which actually appeared to be two posts, as the content is almost word for word. This is concerning opportunity. According to the writer the true color shines through that he actually is professing that voters for Obama were uneducated and we should go to the library to get educated. I believe the right to vote applies to all and just not the privileged educated. Education status has no bearing on the fact. In a truthful outlook over the past the position of being educated has not even had a bearing on our politicians who r un the government. Y ou mentioned prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance and here I have to agree, but yet we also must remember that prayer was never forced upon anyone. If the pledge bothers someone then there is the door. We are so quick to blame the economic woes upon the present president but this shortfall has been passed down and coming for a while. O ur government wastes more money than anyone could ever imagine. Both parties spend countless hours building up and trying to tear down the Obama administration yet the fact that an audit by Ron Paul of the Federal Reserve showed that $16 trillion has been loaned to U.S. and foreign banks interest free and not one dime was paid back since 2007 to the present. Why is there not an outcry for this, or is it because it's just big banking? It seems if someone voted for Obama they are just looking for a handout. What I would like to ask is who is responsible for the loss of our jobs to China, who created the housing bust, who took money from Social Security to pay off other debts or help balance budgets? You don't need to go to the library for this one just look to Washington. It seems like every year you hear the same old tale that we must get out of this hole and pull up our bootstraps and pitch in. This is why the marketplace and local governments are having problems with unions as the American people are not pulling up their bootstraps anymore. We are tired of bailing out the government and large corporations while these people line their pockets with gold and it will end up being just on a continuous cycle. The people don't want it anymore and since you caused my good-paying job to leave y ou now want me to accept a big-box job receiving minimum wage and fewer benefits and being treated like cattle. This is what you want the American people to do? You do it first! You support a family and pay your mortgage on a house that is not even worth what you paid for it, and you put gas that has doubled or tripled over the past few years all on minimum wage. Just so I can say I have a job. It's not economically sound. The government made their bed and now the time has come for them to sleep in it. The government could fade away tomorrow and I would survive fine. It is the folks who are so far up the governments' behind that they won't know what to do without them. Y our final assumption was that these so-called parasites of society should not be allowed to reproduce. Your way of thinking reminds me of a few books I read on a man and if y ou go to the library. you profess that you do. I would suggest you read about him while you are there. Look in the card catalog under Hitler because he professed the same thing about the Jews. That statement took away any educated credibility you might have had. Editor's note: A bill to audit the Federal Reserve,sponsored by former presidential candidate Ron Paul,passed the House in July.The bill was then blocked in the Senate and never came to a vote.A thank you and an opinionI want to thank H ometown News for checking the rants for accuracy and citing the deviations from fact. Too many r ants are presented as gospel. Keep up the good work. As for the recent rant, "Fire the CEO, the USA is not a forprofit corporation." The old saying, "the business of America is business," might pass for wisdom at a Rotary Club lunch, but America is far more than just a marketplace. N ot only can business flourish here (hopefully, all priv ate enterprise, not just corporate monopolies), but also science, the arts, education and small-d democracy. A ccording to Gov. Christy, president Obama has been on the phone with him every day since Sandy struck New Jersey and the northeast. He said the president has gone out of his way to see that material and services have been fasttracked to his state. The president visited New York and N ew Jersey for a first-hand look at the situation on the ground. As for one of our drones being fired upon by Iran; what should we expect? The drone was flying over Iranian airspace, not Fort Pierce. Iran does have the right to protect its own air space. American exceptionalism does not give us the right to intrude on another country, nor does it give us the right to ignore history.

Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com .L isten to him on Seaview AM 960, FM 95.9 and FM 106.9, which can be streamed at www.SeaviewRadio.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m.Last week I sent a mystery shopper into a K ia dealership in West P alm Beach. Her assignment was to respond to TV, r adio and Internet advertisements to buy a new Kia S oul for $179 per month or "less than $6 per day." Ev ery Saturday morning my wife, Nancy, and I host a r adio talk show, "Earl S tewart on Cars" and we always feature a secret shopper who visits a south F lorida car dealership. I r eport the results of that experience, positive and negative. We give our mystery shoppers code names to protect their real identities because most car dealerships listen to my weekly r adio show. This shopper's code name is Agent K. Agent K told the sales person who greeted her that she was responding to the advertisement for a new Kia S oul for only $179 per month. The salesman led her over and showed her the advertised car and as they walked over to the car he said, "the advertising for this car is not all true." I nterestingly, a comment like this from car salespeople is not unusual. The sales people don't write the advertisements and are not r esponsible for the sales tactics of the dealership they work for. Many are apologetic and do not like to have to explain unfair and deceptive advertisements to their customers. They are the ones who have to face angry customers when they find out that the advertisements aren't true. J obs are hard to come by these days and I can almost understand why someone might compromise their ethics to put food on their families' table. The salesman explained the advertised car was a stick shift. He also explained she would have to make a cash down payment of $4,000 and make monthly payments for the next six years and three months. Furthermore, she would have to have a credit Beacon score of at least 750 to qualify for the 2.79 percent interest rate they used to calculate the low payment. The salesman asked Agent K if she would like to take a demonstration ride in the new Kia Soul but she r esponded no because she had already test driven one at another dealer.She didn't tell him the real reason she wouldn't test drive it was because she didn't know how to drive a stick shift. Of course, this is the exact r eason that car dealers advertise cars that don't have automatic transmissions because 99 percent of car buyers don't want to buy a stick shift and most have never driven one. Another thing the car salesman did not tell Agent K was that there was only one car available at the advertised price. This was not clearly disclosed in the advertisements but indicated only in the very fine print by a "stock number." The stock number for this bait and switch car was 130940, which is probably the last six digits of the VIN. The only way I was able to view this number was by looking on the Internet ad, printing it out and then using a magnifying glass to read it. It is literally impossible to r ead the fine print on the TV advertisements and impossible to hear the disclosure on the radioDealer fee deception grows, is ignored by Florida regulators ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A8LettersA bit of heaven on earthTo the editor: I witnessed and shared a little bit of earthly heaven on S aturday, Nov. 17. It happened at the Cracker Fest in Fort Pierce at the A dams Ranch. Never have I seen or met so many earth angels. They were there sharing and giving back to a loving and caring institution called Treasure Coast H ospice. Volunteers from Martin and St. Lucie counties we re doing what they do best: caring and supporting the Tr easure Coast Hospice they believe in. P ersonnel from TC Hospice, as usual, worked their hearts out to make it a great happening for everyone. W onderful 4-H youth volunteers helped park cars, served a delicious lunch provided by Dale's B-B-Q West and were anywhere they were needed. The auctioneer, Reed Hartman, was not only easy on the eyes and ears but knew how to encourage us to bid on the many items that were so generously donated. The Adams Ranch cowboys entertained with branding, rope tricks, games and looked oh-so good on horseback. P hotographer Bob Dobens stayed so busy taking pictures for Hospice memories he didn't even stop to have barbeque. The music we heard and enjoyed was provided by the F latwood Blue Band. They were earth angels that made loving contributions that helped sponsor the event. M any thanks to four generations of the Adams family, who not only donated the place and space, but also many cherished items and participated throughout the day If you didn't recognize the tour guide and bus driver, it was Rob Adams, husband of Cindee Adams, one of the TC H ospice angels. S econd generation Bud Adams personally met and greeted all who he came in contact with and shared v aluable historic information on the ranch and locale. The event was organized by the newly formed Western St. L ucie Friends, a chapter of TC Hospice, under the direction of Ron and Marilyn Suriano. FYI, TC Hospice is a not for-profit organization that serves Martin and St. Lucie counties. They do their part, let's not forget to do ours through our loving donations.

P ublishing 15 community newspapers from Ma r tin County through Volusia CountyADVERTISING SALESLooking for experienced ADVERTISING CONSULTANTS769908 BusinessDon't overlook financial risks in retirementWhen you retire, you may well have accomplished some important financial goals, such as sending your children through college and paying off your mortgage. Yet, you can't relax just y et, because your retirement could easily last two or three decades, which means you'll need at least two or three decades' worth of income, which, in turn, means you'll need the proper savings and investment strategies in place. And, just as importantly, yo u' ll also need to be aware of the types of risk that could threaten these strategies. Let's consider some of these risks: Longevity. None of us can say for sure how long we ll live. But it's still important to have an estimate, based on your health and family history. So if you think you may live, for 25 years in retirement, yo u' ll want to withdraw enough from your investments each year to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle but not so much that you deplete y our funds before the 25 y ears have passed. Inflation. We've experienced pretty mild inflation ov er the past few years. But ov er time, even a low rate of inflation can seriously erode y our purchasing power. To illustrate: If your current monthly costs are $3,000, with only a 3 percent annual inflation rate, that would be about $4,000 in 10 years. And in 25 years at that same r ate, your monthly costs will have more than doubled, to about $6,200. To help protect yourself against inflation risk, it's important to have at least some investments that offer growth potential, rather than only owning fixedincome vehicles, such as certificates of deposit. You'll also want to consider sources of rising income potential, such as dividendpaying stocks. (Keep in mind, though, that stocks can reduce or discontinue dividends at any time and are subject to market fluctuation and loss of principal.) Market fluctuations. When you retire and begin taking withdrawals from y our investment portfolio that is, when you begin selling off investments yo u' d obviously like prices to be high. After all, the classic piece of investment advice is "buy low, sell high." But it's impossible to try to "time" the market this way, as it will always fluctuate. That's why you may want to consider sources of income whose v alue is not dependent on what's happening in the financial markets. Your financial advisor may be able to recommend investments that can provide you with this type of income stream. Low interest rates. Many r etirees depend on fixedr ate investments for a good portion of their retirement income, so it's a real challenge when interest r ates are low. Consequently, when you retire, you'll certainly need to be aware of the interest-rate environment and the income you can expect from these investments. Longer-term, fixed-rate vehicles may be tempting, as they typically offer higher rates than shorterterm ones, but these longer-term investments may have more price fluctuation and inflation r isk than shorter-term investments. Consequently, you'll still likely need balance between short-, intermediateand longterm investments to provide for a portion of y our income in retirement. R etirement can be a r ewarding time in your life. And you can help make y our retirement years even more enjoyable by understanding the relevant investment risks and taking steps to address them.

FI NANCIALJAMIE C HAPOGAS What happened to Veteran's Day?To the editor: A ccording to your paper's published items, not much happened around St. Lucie County last weekend. The primary picture shown was a political ad by a veteran, but then, what the hey! There were only about 10 veterans events around the area last weekend. The SEAL muster and luau, the Marine C orps Ball, veteran's displays at the Stuart Air Show, the memorial service on the river, another in Fort Pierce and the Veteran's Day parade in Stuart, to name a few. We we re encouraged when a young lady from your paper took numerous pictures of our submarine float in the Stuart parade which, incidentally, won first place. After all, we worked very hard to get it there, along with the older vets in attendance. But alas, I eagerly scanned y our latest issue and found almost nothing. I guess the thing that bothers me most is that there are some 38,000 veterans living in St Lucie County. Add spouses and dependents and the total pushes 100,000 military-associated people. I would certainly have thought that the editor would give our cause a little more recognition, in view of the audience size and the holiday just passed. What's next, sailors and dogs keep off the grass? J erry Padrta Po rt St L ucie Editor's note: We 'r e sorry the reader was disappointed with our coverage of Veteran's Day.Our Nov.9 issue was dedicated to veterans and each market carried stories/photos about v eterans.Please visit our website, www.myhometownnews.net and click on Nov.9.The annual SEAL muster event was covered in both the Nov.9 and Nov.16 editions.The air show and veteran's parade in S tuart were covered in the Nov.16 edition.Again,please check our county-specific coverage online.L ettersF rom page A6

advertisements. The fine print on TV appears only for a second or two as a blur on the bottom of the screen and the radio audio disclosure is deliberately obfuscated by speeding up the sound track and lowering the volume. The reason car dealers use a stock number in the fine print is so they can abide by the Florida law that r equires the dealer fee be included in all "advertised" prices. This anemic law resulted from the powerful lobbying of the Florida Automobile D ealers Association. This means a salesman can quote you a price on new car in person, on the phone or via email without disclosing that there is an extra charge (without limit) that he can legally add after you have agreed to buy the car. A car dealer must only tell the truth about the full price of his cars when he advertises that specific car. The Kia dealer in West P alm Beach has three dealer fees totaling $971.45. He doesn't name any of them dealer fee. Florida law allows dealers to name this extra, hidden profit anything they choose. This just makes it easier for car dealers to hide this hidden profit from their customers. The Kia dealer decided to name one of his dealer fees delivery fee and it is $699.95. He probably chose this to make the customer believe this was for inspecting, washing and adjusting the new car. What most customers don't know is these costs are actually paid for by the manufacturer. His second dealer fee he chose to name document and handling fee and in the fine print on his buyer's order says it's "preparation, processing and handling of the documents required in r egistration, filing and licensing of the vehicle" and this extra profit to him is $218.55. This West Palm Beach Kia dealer does have expenses for processing and handling documents. He also has expenses for his monthly utility bills, sales commissions and lease payments for his building, not to mention his deceptive advertising. B ut businesses are supposed to include all of their expenses in the prices of the products they sell. They are not supposed to tell you the price and then make you pay their expenses on top of that price. The third dealer fee this K ia dealer chose to name electronic filing/private tag agency fee, which amounts to $64.95. He does pay a company to process his tag work but he doesn't pay them $64.95. It's $10 or $15 and then he marks it up and adds this to his profits. Yo u' ll notice that all of the dealer fee names have something in common. They all end in "fee." This is by design because the word fee has an official sounding sound about it. This is to lead you to believe that all of these fees are federal, state or local taxes or fees. One way to detect real fees from additional profit to the dealer is by whether or not the dealer charges y ou sales tax on that amount. He is required by law to pay Florida sales tax on the full, true selling price of the vehicle, which must include all of his profit and expenses, except for tax and tag. I hope Pam Bondi, F lorida's attorney general, r eads this article. I wonder how she would feel if a r elative or friend of hers we re victimized by this dealer or one of the other F lorida car dealers, most of whom use the dealer fee and the "phony Monroney" to overcharge their customers. Maybe she would join me in mystery shopping some car dealers to learn how Florida car buyers are being victimized and then do something about it. I'd love to have Ms. Bondi call my radio show sometime to discuss this. She can stream the show live any S aturday morning between 9 and 10 a.m. by clicking www.SeaviewRadio.com I'll gladly accept her call and put it ahead of my other callers so that she doesn't have to wait.

A military flight over enemy territory will not be greeted with a bouquet of flowers, although Donald Rumsfeld assured us we could expect as much when we invaded Iraq to relieve them of their dictator and all their w eapons of mass destruction. Of course they had them, intelligence agencies told him so. Well, Don was right about the dictator; he was there. R epublicans of the Tea Party are determined to undo all social progress made since the New Deal. That will not happen. Successful air showThe Stuart Air Show Nov. 9, 10 and 11 was a huge success.

The museum is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. every Saturday and by appointment for private showings. The volunteers at the museum would be honored to have the community view the artifacts and historical vehicles from their collection. P lease consider a visit to our museum.Be skeptical of predictionsO ur federal government has spent $25 billion studying global warming. The rate of spending has increased each and every year. Environmental alarmists claim America is dying under a sea of pollution and the cities will soon be under water. Doomsday prophecies have grabbed headlines but computer models are frequently faulty. In the mid-1970s, computer models told us we should prepare for global cooling. Today's predictions should be greeted with a great deal of skepticism.Congratulations?C ongratulations to the Democrats. You have given your president the OK to finish the job of making the United States of America into a European socialist state. If you want to see what we will be like in the future, look at Greece and Spain and reflect on the r iots, stagnant economies, massive unemployment and complete social unrest! And also be ready to accept Euros instead of U.S dollars when Obama introduces them to our lame economy. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 30, 2012 Martin County A9 048979€ Handy Man € Repairs/ Remodeling € House Cleaning € Residential PaintingASK ABOUT OUR SENIOR DISCOUNTServing The Treasure CoastNo Job Too Small!Over 30 Years of Experience www.kallkell.com KallKell@bellsouth.netLicensed & InsuredLike us on Facebook /Ask About Our Referral Program Realtors WelcomeCBC 1255155 CALLFORYOURFREEESTIMATE772-340-5989 048983Then& Now GalleryUnique Items From Y esterday & Today Any Item Over $20 Receive an Additional1999 NE Jensen Beach Blvd.(next to Mulligans ) Jensen Beach,Fl 34957 € 772-285-742510% OFF 769808 769810 SAVE THE DATES aturday,December 1st,at 1pmS ponsored by:Br idge Boat and RV Storage M etz Construction H obe Sound Soccer Club Arts and Crafts Stroll Dixie Highway 10:00am-3:00pmH obe Sound Christmas ParadeD ixie Highway and Bridge Road 769873 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 toll-free, 24 hour recorded message at 1-800-864-4991. 769901 048557 048558Join Our Christmas Worship SectionInviting All To Your Worship Services Call 1-800-823-0466 ObituariesK enneth Russell HagarK enneth Russell Hagar, 81, of Jensen Beach, died Nov. 16, 2012.

The session focused on economics and cultural diversity. The day provided students with on-site visits and hand-on leadership activities with the theme of focusing on how the local community is impacted by the economic decisions of businesses and residents. The day was fun-filled and packed with exciting discussions on the positive traits of great leaders, and financial planning around needs versus wants," said M ike Sancho, planning committee chairman and operations director of the Bo ys & Girls Clubs of Martin County. The morning component of the program was held at the Indiantown Civic Center, where students participated in several interactive ice-breaker and leadership activities that provided scenarios to differentiate "n eeds" versus "wants" and the impact of short-term financial decisions on long-term success for both the individual and the community. C ommittee members G ina Golino, marketing director of Forward Electric & Air Conditioning, and Alissa Collins of Plastridge I nsurance were instrumental in facilitating the day. N ext on the agenda was lunch, provided by Dee Stefano's Italian Restaurant & C atering of Indiantown at T imer Powers Park where the remaining program was kicked-off by a demonstration by Gibbs Sports Amphibians which demonstrated their quad Jet Ski prototype. The group continued with walking tours of Hope Ru r al School, the Adult R esource Center and the construction site of the new Boys & Girls Club being built at Carter Park. S tudents met with two teachers at Hope Rural School and had an opportunity to hear their stories and how they personally have been impacted by the I ndiantown community.

MARTIN COUNTY A little time spent mentoring a child can make a big difference, said administrators of a local nonprofit looking to r ecruit volunteers. B ig Brothers Big Sisters of P alm Beach and Martin counties is urging residents to "spend a little time" to positively impact the life of one of the 275 children in its program. "I t doesn't take anything to be a mentor. It just takes y our own life skills," said J eanie Flanagan, the group's customer relations specialist. The bottom line is to have some fun, let them talk about things and introduce them to new hobbies." B ut for the hundreds of children in the organization, spending time with mentors leads to several measurable improvements. Children with mentors have better school attendance, higher grades and are more likely to go to college. They also have improved self-esteem and several other positive changes, repr esentatives of the nonprofit said. A bout 96 percent maintain or improve their academic performance; 92 percent have better school attendance, 93 percent show improved behavior, 98 percent are promoted to the next grade level and 85 percent experience increased confidence in their own abilities. "W e really are the gold standard of mentoring. Big Br others Big Sisters has been around for over 100 y ears, so we really know what we're doing. We have some substantial stats that support what mentoring does," Ms. Flanagan said. Essentially we're making good citizens in our own community." M entors, called big brothers or sisters, can participate in school or communitybased programs and help children learn career skills. M any children in the program have difficulty focusing or paying attention in school, and several come from single-parent homes. M entors typically spend about a year with their "little brothers" or "sisters." "B eing a big brother or big sister is one of the most enjoyable things you'll ever do, not to mention one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a child's future for the better by empowering him or her to achieve. And the best part is it's actually a lot of fun. You and your little' can share the kinds of activities you already like to do," Ms. Flanagan said. "P lay sports together, go on a hike, read books, eat a pizza with extra anchovies, or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is y ou enjoy, odds are you'll enjoy it even more with your little, and you'll be making a life-changing impact."

This was the second annual reunion held at the hospital, with plans to keep the event going every year. It 's an event that K iana Hamilton plans to attend again. The 17y ear-old junior from Tr easure Coast High School in Port St. Lucie was riding a jet ski on May 12 when an accident caused a major skull fracture and she almost drowned. The way they took care of her, it was unbelievable," said her father, J ohn. "They call her the miracle child." K iana spent two w eeks in the hospital before going to rehab and then back to school. "I 'm so thankful," she said. "I still come here and visit." In the back of the r oom, a wall was lined with doctors, helicopter pilots and other hospital personnel.

totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change," Rep. West said in a prepared statement. "Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success." Mr. Murphy addressed Re p. W est's concession, calling it "gracious." "I am truly humbled that the voters of the 18th district have entrusted me to represent them in Washington. To those who supported my opponent, my door is open, and I want to hear your voice," he said in a press r elease. "I campaigned on a message of reaching across the aisle to get things done for the people of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches. I am excited and honored to get to work." Re p. W est's concession came after the St. Lucie C ounty canvassing board voted to recount all eight days of early voting ballots, which took place over a two-day period on Nov. 17 and 18, so the elections office could meet the state's elections deadline to report re sults by noon on Nov. 18. The results showed Mr. M urphy not only maintaining his lead from a previous r ecount, but increasing it by 242 votes. The final results in the county showed Mr. Murphy with 65,841 votes, while Re p. W est received 52,704 votes. In the district, Mr. M urphy won by 1,904 votes. S ince the difference between the two candidates was determined to be .58 percent, it did not meet the qualifications for an automatic recount of all the votes. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 30, 2012 Martin County A11 769803 769809 Full House for the Holidays?Let us be their home away from home!F or more information, Call(772) 828-4100€ Clean Rooms € Breakfast Everyday € Housekeeping &concierge Service € Fitness Center &Pool 040281772-464-0019Hours: Mon-Sat 1pm 9pmR E N T A L SA V A I L A B L E50% OFF! 50% OFF!Allregular pricedAdult DVD'sADULTD VD'sstarting atADULT VHS TAPESBuy 1 Adult at $4& Get Another at3223 S.

"W e were determined to r each $10,000 this year," said Tasha Chen, event cochairwoman. "We had a great committee and just worked really hard." The Nov. 8 event, held at I ndianRiverside Park, featured chocolate-themed appetizers, desserts and a signature chocolate martini from Bottom's Up Beverages and Di'Michelli's Catering. That had a lot to do with our success," said Christina K aiser, community relations director for United for Families. "We had practically no expenses thanks to the contributions of our donors." This was also the first year the group sold tickets online. Online sales accounted for more than half of all sales, and most of that was made in the first month of sales. U nited for Families is the nonprofit organization r esponsible for every known abused or neglected child in S t. Lucie, Martin, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. The organization's mission is to break the cycle of child abuse through a diverse network of community providers and innovative services. All proceeds from Girls N ight Out go to the Road to S uccess program, which prepares teens for life outside the foster-care system.

Hello, Forever Young readers. I have been working on this wonderful publication for more than a year now, behind the scenes, making sure that all the information ended up on the page and before your eyes. No w, with a few changes and some re va mping, I've accepted the challenge of writing Fo re v er Young but will still help to produce it. It couldn't have come at a better time because the arts are a true love of mine, and the focus of the December edition of Fo re v er Young. When I was little, I remember the bus r ides from school to museums. There we re tons of museums to go to and as I walked around, bright-eyed and filled with wonder, I became fascinated with a world that was beautiful. Whether it was a science museum, Ripley's Believe It or Not in St. Augustine or an art museum, I was always enthralled with what was on each corner, wall and display. When I was 18, I took a trip to New Yo rk City. When my cousin asked what I wanted to see, the first place on my list was the Metropolitan Museum of Art. S urrounded by paintings, statues and jewelry from around the world through different periods of time, I fully understood the history around me. Each component of "the arts," shows us glimpses into other worlds, one that is not in the here and now. They are a temporary distraction from life. My love of the arts is found not only in paintings, but in the beauty of music the well-choreographed steps of a ballet or the perfect reenactment of a character. This area of our beautiful state has more than enough to offer and December is bursting at the seams with plays, r ecitals, symphonies and museums focusing on the holidays. There's no excuse not to get out of the house and watch the beautiful light displays. After all 'tis the season! There is so much to the holidays:3MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG Published monthly by Hometown News, L.C., 5059 Turnpike Feeder Road, Fort Pierce, FL 34951 Copyright 2012, Hometown News L.C.Circulation Inquiries: 1-866-913-6397 or circulation@hometownnewsol.comV oted No. 1 Community Newspaper in America by the Association of Free Community Papers.

S et during Prohibition, "Bugsy M alone Jr." is filled with men in pinstripes after liquor and money and women after the jewels. Mrs. Jones, the director of the show, said she enjoys listening to the children talk in New York accents and use the lingo of the day. They all learn what their character is about, how they spoke with an accent and how they related to one another in that time period," Mrs. J ones said. "The boys talk tough and the show girls are talking tough, too and singing these great songs and it's hilarious because of their age and singing about adult issues." The cast has been practicing every week since early September with the hours getting longer the closer it gets to the show. "I t' s not just the show," Mrs. Jones said. "They're also learning about stage presence and terminology like stage left and such."

Last year, Lorrianna Colozzo's holiday show was a packed house as her voice filled the theater. The Lyric Theatre brought the singer back to host "'Tis the Season A musical celebration for the holidays starring Lorrianna Colozzo" at 7 p.m. on Dec. 13. "I think there are a lot of local people who are familiar with her or hear her at church," said John Loesser, executive director of the Lyric Theatre. "She is a wonderful singer, so we try to champion our local talent as best we can." Ms. Colozzo grew up in Palm City. S he is married and has a 6-year-old daughter, Isabella. "I love performing at the Lyric because I love living on the Treasure C oast," said Ms. Colozzo. "The theater is so cozy and warm with a smalltown atmosphere. I've met so many people here that have done so much to support me." S he began singing when she was 6 and started voice lessons when she was 10. She has been trained to sing opera at the Peabody Conservatory of M usic. W ith songs such as "We Wish You a M erry Christmas," "Santa Baby" "C arol of the Bells" and many more pieces, Ms. Colozzo has a passion for holiday-inspired music.

6MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG One hour can be w orth generations Afew of years ago, I was planning a long weekend trip to the mountains for our wedding anniversary. We were flying from into Charlotte, N.C. I knew that it was close to where I needed to research, but I should forget that, it was my anniversary. How ever, I couldn't help checking the map and only one hour east was my research town. I needed to go "west" with my husband, not east" to the library, right? But it was so close! The courthouse would be closed on Saturday and the library probably would be, too. B etter forget it, but it was so close! It happens that my father's family and my mother's family both lived in Richmond County, N.C., between 1790 and 1836, in separate ends of the county. Each family had moved on in different directions I checked the library hours. Almost any North Carolina library has a great genealogy room with lots of local history. The library was open until 5 p.m. Saturday. I could land at Charlotte, rent the car and drive to Rockingham, and be there by 4 p.m. One whole hour in the library, then we could head west. Fo r tunately, I have the most understanding husband in the world, and he doesn't mind r esearching and likes cemeteries as much as I do. He says, "go for it," and so we actually pull up to the library in Rockingham, N.C. at 4 p .m. Saturday. It had a huge genealogy room. He took one side and I took the other and we spent the next 45 minutes going through local history material. Before closing, I went to the copy machine to copy the few things we found that might mean something at a later date. S tanding in line at the copy machine, I glance at a hand-drawn map Vernon has found in a thin little book. It has all the churches in the county marked. The booklet is the history of the churches in the county and has an index at the back. In the index is listed Knight's Chapel." Q uickly looking this up through the book, I find that Knight's Chapel was founded by Moses Knight in 1790. Moses Knight! He's mine, and the chapel is marked at the state line right where he had lived. This is a great find. I copy the map and the page I need, and we are kicked out of the library at closing time. huge crush on the main role, Bugsy. S he is really pretty and she likes to go around dating boys so they would buy her things and make her even more pretty." Charlotte said it is the accents that make it more fun for the cast and the audience. "Y ou really feel like you're part of the show because of it, not just y ou," Charlotte said. "The accents are funny and it lets us feel more like we're performing and acting and everything is just funnier." "B ugsy Malone Jr." will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7 with a matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG There is plenty of daylight left on a summer day in August, so we start visiting cemeteries looking for my mother's family, stopping to talk to neighbors and taking all their directions to the little cemeteries in the out-of-the-way places. This search brings no r esults and so I reluctantly decide to give up and continue on with our original plans. Knight's Chapel is calling to me. It is right on U.S. 1 a few miles down the road at the state line. Of course that was in 1790. Before we leave town, I say to Vernon, "Why don't we just drive down the road. Who knows, maybe there will be a big sign with Knight's Chapel written on it?" And so we do. There is no sign and no Knight's Chapel, but after we cross into S outh Carolina we pass a little white church sitting far back on the road. There's a church with a nice cemetery, do you want to look?" The sign reads: New Hope M ethodist Church. That sounds familiar. I check the copied pages. "M oses and William Knight founded Knight's Chapel in 1790, which later became New Hope Methodist Church." Along the side there is a nice cemetery, and at the front, and sitting next to where the original church would have been, is a fenced-in section. Most of the stones remaining are the Knight family, some are Moses' children. This is "our" family plot. It is S aturday night, tomorrow is S unday service at the church and there is no way I am going anywhere. We are going to church. As we walked into the church, all five elderly attendees turn to stare. Service was over, and they we re having Sunday school. They we re friendly and polite, but had no idea how or when the church was founded and didn't really seem to care. The Knight family is long since gone and they were only interested in their own families and anxious to tell me about them. The rest of Sunday school was spent on family stor ies. My little out-of-the-way trip to spend one hour in a library turned into a memory of a lifetime. W elcome to genealogy. One chance meeting, one quick stop, checking just one more source, can change the whole direction of y our research, or give you your ow n memorable experience. So take the chance and the time and go, for it!

There will be a jazz trio with a piano, bass and drums, dancers choreographed by Tasha Patterson and a select choir from the S outh Fork High School chorus. "I have to say this is a huge undertaking," Ms. Colozzo said. "I will be working with children in the show, including my daughter, and all the talent in the show. I am glad I can incorporate my family in it." At the end of the show there will be a sing-a-long where everyone gets involved and there could be a special appearance at the end of the night.

8MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG Art gallery located in unlikely place MARTIN COUNTY Up a flight of stairs at Molly's House, a temporary housing facility for patients and families during medical treatment, is a gem called Molly's Gallery. The gallery is full of local artists ov erseen by gallery coordinator, Dee B lanton. Ev ery month, Molly's G allery showcases three artists from around the Treasure Coast. In D ecember, the gallery will feature the works of Sean McCar thy, Claribel M eserve and Judith K. Morrison. Mr. McCarthy's impressionisticstyle oil paintings showcase landscapes and portraits. Ms. Meserve works with acrylic oils over canvas, using refreshing positive tones from her life and translating them through her paintings. Ms. Morrison's jewelry is woven with beads and creates intricate jewelry art. Each peace is a wearable work of art with a variety of colors and styles. The gallery offers all of the artists a unique opportunity to reach customers they might not have the budge to reach. "W e don't charge any commissions for anyone to come in and show their artwork," Ms. Blanton said. "We ask for a 10 percent donation if they sell anything, but it's only a donation." I ncluding the opportunity to have their art showcased, the gallery holds complimentary Champagne r eceptions on the first Thursday of every month to welcome new artists. The December reception will be held from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. Thursday, De c. 6 and will feature music from T aafkab Etalia. "W e ask for a $2 donation for those attending or an item on our wish list," Ms. Blanton said. Wish list items vary from household items to toiletries. The December wish list is dry cereal. "W e' ve also partnered with the other art galleries in downtown Stuart and they do Champagne and art as well on the same night," Ms. Blanton said. A ttendees can also take advantage of a shuttle service that ferries passengers from one end of the downtown galleries and back to Molly's House. Ms. Blanton said that the turnout for the event is phenomenal and expressed her excitement about all of the upcoming artists. Each artist is chosen at the beginning of September, three chosen for every month. "W e have artists come in and give us their names all year long," Ms. B lanton said. "In the summer, we go through all of the cards and portfolios. Once you've shown your artwork for a season, we won't feature an artist for another year. We want it to be fair to everyone." M olly's House is located at 430 SE O sceola St., Stuart. The gallery is located on the second floor. F or more information on the event or how to submit art for the gallery, call (772) 223-6659 or visit www.mollyshouse.org.

MARTIN COUNTY Diners exiting Pirate's Cove Resort and Marina can thank Executive Chef Richard O'Keefe for a great experience. "W onderful meal, wonderful server," said one female diner. And she's right. The Port Salerno r estaurant is one of those places that gets better every time. It has just the right mix of great food, three bars and live entertainment, all on a beautiful waterfront setting that offers views of the St. L ucie River. I ts latest addition is a cheerful and colorful tiki bar that has proven to be a popular spot, featuring a full menu with seafood specialties and a welcoming come-as-you-are atmosphere. C ool breezes, sandy terrain, teakwood furniture, beach-theme dŽcor and live music give the illusion of a seaside getaway that has boosted the bar's success. The tiki bar has been great," Mr. O'Keefe said. "We're thrilled it's done as well as it has." The tiki bar is the third on the property. Its lounge already had r egular parties with live music Thursday through Saturday night, and the deck bar served patrons at lunch and dinner. At Pirate's Cove, the food is fresh and delicious, and the amenities make diners want to stay after the meal. A pretty pavers pavilion has been attracting weekend parties, weddings, corporate events, fishing tournaments and social functions, including a recent crawfish boil.9MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG Marina restaurant is better than everBy Samantha Josephsjoseph@hometownnewsol.com See DINING, 10 File photoPirate's Cove Resort and Marina boasts several amenities, including a popular tiki bar that make it a favorite spot in Port Salerno. 039727SUDOKU PUZZLE ANSWER 048382 048381

10MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG "W e just keep getting more and more class reunions here," Mr. O'Keefe said. "The hotel is here, the bar is here, everything is right on site." The restaurant is part of a 50r oom hotel with a deluxe two-bedr oom standalone cottage. And on weekends, it opens its pool to the public, making Pirate's Cove a fun escape close to home. D etails are important at the r esort, and in the main dining r oom, guests eat with beautiful linen napkins with colorful floral prints. The menu is a mix of seafood specialties, pastas, steaks, ribs, sandwiches, soups and salads. It offers variety and reflects a carefully designed range of choices. One of the "pirate's favorites" is a r oast pork dip sandwich with onion jus and Swiss cheese, served with French fries. It arrives on a perfectly toasted roll, stuffed with sumptuous, juicy roast pork and delicious, fresh onion jus. The sandwich is filling and the perfect hearty lunch. The restaurant's grouper dishes are its signature plates, freshly caught and prepared to order. B ut its other fish dishes are also stellar. The almond tilapia, for instance, comes with garlic spinach and roasted peppers, and the Japanese crispy Arctic haddock has wok-fried vegetables and sweet red chilies. The sunset menu remains a favorite, priced at $14. Its entrŽes include barbecue ribs, grilled Angus meatloaf, broiled salmon, jumbo friend shrimp, shrimp pasta primavera and tender chicken breast served grilled, blackened or fried. It also includes a salad, side dish and dessert. At dinner, the chef is perhaps at his best and Pirate's Cove has an outstanding selection. The crab-stuffed shrimp is a favorite, offering jumbo Gulf shrimp stuffed with lump crab meat and topped with a citrus beurre blanc. The Florida crab cakes are also excellent, lightly seasoned and dusted with buttery cracker crumbs, fried and served with honey mustard sauce. Pirate's Cove is located at 4307 S.E Bayview St. For more information, call (772) 287-2500.DiningF rom page 9 family, malls, presents and shopping that we can become bogged down with everything.

In the last seven years, area women have been seeking medical care earlier in their pregnancies, a move that officials said bodes well for local babies, said Scott Berry, executive director of Martin County H ealthy Start Coalition, a nonprofit that offers support and education for pregnant women and infants. The later women get into prenatal care, the higher the risk of low birth w eights, Mr. Berry said. L ow er birth weights mean higher risk of dying in the first year of life.

That was the day the Vero Beach r esident was run over by a car and r ushed to Lawnwood Regional M edical Center with a broken femur, exploded spleen, two broken r ibs, a damaged liver and a collapsed lung. I t left me really damaged inside, she said. I dont remember that day, or the two weeks afterwards.

She spent three weeks in the hospital before she was transferred to a r ehabilitation facility. Now, eight months later, she sat smiling with her family during the Tr auma Survivor Reunion held at Lawnwood Hospital on Nov. 15. W ith survivors and the care teams in one place, hellos and hugs were exchanged. Tulips were also given to every survivor, to symbolize a life that has been altered due to trauma.

B eginning in April, participants can select a city and date of their choosing to participate in an 18-hour walk to build solidarity and show support for cancer patients and survivors. R elay For Life of South Mar tin County, chaired by T om and Ronda Balling, will begin at noon on Saturday, Apr il 20 and continue through 6 a.m. on Sunday, Apr il 21. The Jensen Beach Relay F or Life, chaired by Kimberly Perron, will be held the following weekend, kicking off on Friday, April 26 at 6 p .m. and ending on Saturday, April 27 at noon. The final event, the Central Martin County Relay For Life, chaired by Paula Richmond, is set for May 4-5. Organizers expect as many as 500 people in about 50 teams to participate locally. The 18 hours are symbolic of a cancers patient journey through cancer, with the day and the night representing the hope, darkness, loneliness, questions, illness progress and everything they go through, Ms. H enkes said. They wonder how theyre going to make it through the night. That happens to the participants who walk through the night. They get tired; they want to stop, but then the sun rises. C ancer survivors and their families are honored guests at each of the events, who organizers encourage to participate and tell their stor ies. P eople who have been newly diagnosed can share in the hope that they, too, can beat this, Ms. Henkes said. The unique event, the local agencys biggest fundraiser, also offers entertainment, food, games and inspirational stories.

P lanning Council hosted the work group meetings, so r esidents and planners could discuss a 50-year plan for seven counties in Southeast Florida. The groups are developing Seven50, also called S outheast Floridas Prosperity Plan, for Martin, St. L ucie, Indian River, Monroe, M iami-Dade, Broward and P alm Beach counties. Once complete, the plan will serve as a guide for building more diverse communities with stronger economies. It focuses on education, workforce and economic development, environmental protection, climate r esilience, preserving natur al resources, agriculture, creating healthy communities, culture, inclusive r egional leadership and equity, protecting community assets, and controlling development patterns in housing and transportation, said Maria Salazar, a marketer working with facilitators. F unded through a grant from the U.S. Department of H ousing & Urban Developments sustainable communities initiative, the meetings aimed to get residents thinking of development as a decades-long prospect. I t was great to see how people kept focus on the notion that this is a longterm plan, and that we need to take charge of our future, said Marcela Camblor-Cutsaimanis, project director of the sustainable communities initiative at Southeast F lorida Regional Partnership, a collaboration of hundreds of public, private and civic groups from the southeast Florida region. Its important to set aside our differences as individual counties if we want to become resilient. Among the leading priorities emerging from the discussions were calls for a clear vision about how each county should develop its r esources to attract new industries and diversify its economy. Among the strategies were steps to attract firms engaged in research and biological sciences to bring high-salary jobs that complement the regions agriculture and real estate sectors. Tr ansportation also emerged as a chief concern, with participants repeatedly calling for broader public transit and a transportation model that connected the r egion. In Mar tin County, the top ideas included suggestions to focus on healthcare, broadband, education and energy to gain a competitive advantage. In Indian River County, r esidents were intent on preserving the areas wetlands, beaches, lagoons and other natural resources, as we ll as maintaining its urban development plan. When polled, St. Lucie C ounty residents said they wanted diversity in housing, and a stronger culture of civic engagement. W e challenged those in attendance to think about not only what they wanted for themselves, but also for y ounger generations and even those beyond that, Ms. Camblor-Cutsaimanis said. People thought beyond their own needs. F or more information and r ecaps of the workshops,visit www.Seven50.org.

B ut as she looks back on her seven-year career with much pride, theres one thing she is most looking forward to in the days ahead. I loved my job, but I am r eally anxious to sleep, she said. The stress is so great that I didnt sleep very much. Im looking forward to sleeping. M uch of the stress came from repeated challenges to a pioneering woman in a department and career field historically reserved for men. I have mixed emotions. It s been a wonderful career, Chief Sunderman said. No matter where you go, with every promotion, y ou constantly have to prove yourself. And everywhere else you go outside of y our department family, questions (arise) about whether you can do the job, instead of looking at your credentials. Whether they say it or not, you can tell people are doubtful. You constantly have to show all the facts and all the figures. Chief Sunderman rose through the ranks during a 22-year career with the city. S he joined the department after serving in the U.S. Na vy, and started as a probationary firefighter in 1990. S he said some of her male colleagues were helpful and supportive along the way. Among them was Assistant Fi re Chief David Dyal, who will become interim chief following her retirement. B ut several others questioned her abilities. The natural instinct is for men to be helpers of women, she said. And if something is wrong, they want to tell you how to fix it. They think they can always do the job better than you. As a chief youre constantly being challenged. One of the biggest challenges came when Stuart firefighter Wayne Duffy accused the chief of sexual harassment and of punitively denying him a promotion in 2006. The city sided with Chief S underman, but members of the local firefighters union rallied behind Mr. D uffy. That was a lot of gameplaying, Chief Sunderman said. Of course, I couldnt speak because I was the chief. Before this happened, 80 percent of the union had told me he needed to be fired. But they stuck up for him and wanted to protect him. It was rocky, but it was because of playing a game. Thats how the union does it. The union is very possessive of protecting its own. In the final days of the chiefs term, union leaders said theyve enjoyed a good r elationship with the departments leader. E veryones reaction was shock when we initially heard (she was retiring). Ev eryone supported her and thought she was good for the department, said Lt. To ry B auser, president of the City of Stuart Local 2411, the firefighter union. The department supports her and always has supported her. We wish her well in her future endeavors, and we know that she will do w ell in whatever she decides to get into. Chief Sunderman, who submitted her 90-day retirement notice on Sept. 30, said she is considering several new ventures, including teaching at the National Fi re A cademy, as well as some consultant work. I have to open other doors, and God will show me where to go, she said. D espite her decision to change directions, Chief S underman encouraged women considering a career in firefighting to pursue the option and make strides in the profession. I think, through my history, at least 80 percent of my troops have really cared for me and believed in me, Chief Sunderman said. Its not a popularity contest. I (did) it to protect my community and the citizens.

That year, it ranked 47th out of 67 counties for its infant mortality rate, which measures the number of babies who make it to their first birthday. B ut 2011 saw the county move to one of the top in the state, with the eighthlowest infant mortality r ate, according to the F lorida Department of H ealth. O ut of 1,200 births, five babies died in 2011, compared to 11 in 2005, the r eport showed. As the percentage of mothers who are getting into care early increases, so does the percentage of babies born at a healthy birth weight, Mr. Berry said. And as the percentage of babies born at low birth weight decreases, the infant mortality rate has decreased, as well. You have to have good prenatal care in the community. He althy Start Coalition worked to achieve this goal by encouraging pregnant women to seek early care. S ince its inception in 1992, the group has worked with more than 19,000 expectant mothers throughout the county, said Evelyn Lespinasse, a marketing re presentative for the organization. Last year alone, the group served 1,331 clients. A dministrators said mothers are getting the message about the importance of care in the first trimester to mitigate pregnancy risks. Also in 2011, about 72 percent of pregnant women in Martin County r eceived medical care within the first three months of pregnancy, compared to 56 percent in 2005, the lowest rate in the state at that time. O ur performance has dramatically improved, Mr. Berry said.

In all, children in more than 100 countries will r eceive the shoeboxes. C ollection sites in Fort Pierce, Stuart, Port St. Lucie and Okeechobee received approximately 14,000 shoeboxes from the community. V olunteers take the shoeboxes and place them in larger shipping boxes, where they travel to a processing center in Atlanta, one of 11 in the United S tates. Last year, the organization collected 7 million shoeboxes, Ms. Grossmann said. This year, O peration Christmas Child will see the delivery of 100 million shoeboxes. Ms. Grossmann is not only active in collecting the boxes, but in distributing them, as well. I will be traveling to K enya at the end of April to help hand out boxes there, she said. At the collection site in Fo rt Pierce, more than 900 shoeboxes were donated last year. This year, shipping cartons sat stacked by the door as a call came in that 200 more shoeboxes we re on their way from donors. W e are seeing more and more people donating, said Carolyn Swayze, a volunteer for the collection site at Indian River Presbyterian Church in Fort Pierce. Its wonderful to see it at this level.

In response to a ranterU pon reading the rant of non-educated people, which actually appeared to be two posts, as the content is almost word for word. This is concerning opportunity. According to the writer the true color shines through that he actually is professing that voters for Obama were uneducated and we should go to the library to get educated. I believe the right to vote applies to all and just not the privileged educated. Education status has no bearing on the fact. In a truthful outlook over the past the position of being educated has not even had a bearing on our politicians who r un the government. Y ou mentioned prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance and here I have to agree, but yet we also must remember that prayer was never forced upon anyone. If the pledge bothers someone then there is the door. We are so quick to blame the economic woes upon the present president but this shortfall has been passed down and coming for a while. O ur government wastes more money than anyone could ever imagine. Both parties spend countless hours building up and trying to tear down the Obama administration yet the fact that an audit by Ron Paul of the Federal Reserve showed that $16 trillion has been loaned to U.S. and foreign banks interest free and not one dime was paid back since 2007 to the present. Why is there not an outcry for this, or is it because its just big banking? It seems if someone voted for Obama they are just looking for a handout. What I would like to ask is who is responsible for the loss of our jobs to China, who created the housing bust, who took money from Social Security to pay off other debts or help balance budgets? You dont need to go to the library for this one just look to Washington. It seems like every year you hear the same old tale that we must get out of this hole and pull up our bootstraps and pitch in. This is why the marketplace and local governments are having problems with unions as the American people are not pulling up their bootstraps anymore. We are tired of bailing out the government and large corporations while these people line their pockets with gold and it will end up being just on a continuous cycle. The people dont want it anymore and since you caused my good-paying job to leave y ou now want me to accept a big-box job receiving minimum wage and fewer benefits and being treated like cattle. This is what you want the American people to do? You do it first! You support a family and pay your mortgage on a house that is not even worth what you paid for it, and you put gas that has doubled or tripled over the past few years all on minimum wage. Just so I can say I have a job. Its not economically sound. The government made their bed and now the time has come for them to sleep in it. The government could fade away tomorrow and I would survive fine. It is the folks who are so far up the governments behind that they wont know what to do without them. Y our final assumption was that these so-called parasites of society should not be allowed to reproduce. Your way of thinking reminds me of a few books I read on a man and if y ou go to the library. you profess that you do. I would suggest you read about him while you are there. Look in the card catalog under Hitler because he professed the same thing about the Jews. That statement took away any educated credibility you might have had. Editors note: A bill to audit the Federal Reserve,sponsored by former presidential candidate Ron Paul,passed the House in July.The bill was then blocked in the Senate and never came to a vote.A thank you and an opinionI want to thank H ometown News for checking the rants for accuracy and citing the deviations from fact. Too many r ants are presented as gospel. Keep up the good work. As for the recent rant, Fire the CEO, the USA is not a forprofit corporation. The old saying, the business of America is business, might pass for wisdom at a Rotary Club lunch, but America is far more than just a marketplace. N ot only can business flourish here (hopefully, all priv ate enterprise, not just corporate monopolies), but also science, the arts, education and small-d democracy. A ccording to Gov. Christy, president Obama has been on the phone with him every day since Sandy struck New Jersey and the northeast. He said the president has gone out of his way to see that material and services have been fasttracked to his state. The president visited New York and N ew Jersey for a first-hand look at the situation on the ground. As for one of our drones being fired upon by Iran; what should we expect? The drone was flying over Iranian airspace, not Fort Pierce. Iran does have the right to protect its own air space. American exceptionalism does not give us the right to intrude on another country, nor does it give us the right to ignore history.

Her assignment was to respond to TV, r adio and Internet advertisements to buy a new Kia S oul for $179 per month or less than $6 per day. Ev ery Saturday morning my wife, Nancy, and I host a r adio talk show, Earl S tewart on Cars and we always feature a secret shopper who visits a south F lorida car dealership. I r eport the results of that experience, positive and negative. We give our mystery shoppers code names to protect their real identities because most car dealerships listen to my weekly r adio show. This shoppers code name is Agent K. Agent K told the sales person who greeted her that she was responding to the advertisement for a new Kia S oul for only $179 per month. The salesman led her over and showed her the advertised car and as they walked over to the car he said, the advertising for this car is not all true. I nterestingly, a comment like this from car salespeople is not unusual. The sales people dont write the advertisements and are not r esponsible for the sales tactics of the dealership they work for. Many are apologetic and do not like to have to explain unfair and deceptive advertisements to their customers. They are the ones who have to face angry customers when they find out that the advertisements arent true. J obs are hard to come by these days and I can almost understand why someone might compromise their ethics to put food on their families table. The salesman explained the advertised car was a stick shift. He also explained she would have to make a cash down payment of $4,000 and make monthly payments for the next six years and three months. Furthermore, she would have to have a credit Beacon score of at least 750 to qualify for the 2.79 percent interest rate they used to calculate the low payment. The salesman asked Agent K if she would like to take a demonstration ride in the new Kia Soul but she r esponded no because she had already test driven one at another dealer.She didnt tell him the real reason she wouldnt test drive it was because she didnt know how to drive a stick shift. Of course, this is the exact r eason that car dealers advertise cars that dont have automatic transmissions because 99 percent of car buyers dont want to buy a stick shift and most have never driven one. Another thing the car salesman did not tell Agent K was that there was only one car available at the advertised price. This was not clearly disclosed in the advertisements but indicated only in the very fine print by a stock number. The stock number for this bait and switch car was 130940, which is probably the last six digits of the VIN. The only way I was able to view this number was by looking on the Internet ad, printing it out and then using a magnifying glass to read it. It is literally impossible to r ead the fine print on the TV advertisements and impossible to hear the disclosure on the radioDealer fee deception grows, is ignored by Florida regulators ON CARSEARL STEWART See S TEWART, A8LettersA bit of heaven on earthTo the editor: I witnessed and shared a little bit of earthly heaven on S aturday, Nov. 17. It happened at the Cracker Fest in Fort Pierce at the A dams Ranch. Never have I seen or met so many earth angels. They were there sharing and giving back to a loving and caring institution called Treasure Coast H ospice. Volunteers from Martin and St. Lucie counties we re doing what they do best: caring and supporting the Tr easure Coast Hospice they believe in. P ersonnel from TC Hospice, as usual, worked their hearts out to make it a great happening for everyone. W onderful 4-H youth volunteers helped park cars, served a delicious lunch provided by Dales B-B-Q West and were anywhere they were needed. The auctioneer, Reed Hartman, was not only easy on the eyes and ears but knew how to encourage us to bid on the many items that were so generously donated. The Adams Ranch cowboys entertained with branding, rope tricks, games and looked oh-so good on horseback. P hotographer Bob Dobens stayed so busy taking pictures for Hospice memories he didnt even stop to have barbeque. The music we heard and enjoyed was provided by the F latwood Blue Band. They were earth angels that made loving contributions that helped sponsor the event. M any thanks to four generations of the Adams family, who not only donated the place and space, but also many cherished items and participated throughout the day. If you didnt recognize the tour guide and bus driver, it was Rob Adams, husband of Cindee Adams, one of the TC H ospice angels. S econd generation Bud Adams personally met and greeted all who he came in contact with and shared v aluable historic information on the ranch and locale. The event was organized by the newly formed Western St. L ucie Friends, a chapter of TC Hospice, under the direction of Ron and Marilyn Suriano. FYI, TC Hospice is a not for-profit organization that serves Martin and St. Lucie counties. They do their part, lets not forget to do ours through our loving donations.

FINAN C IALJAM I E C HAPOGAS What happened to V eter ans Day?To the editor: A ccording to your papers published items, not much happened around St. Lucie County last weekend. The primary picture shown was a political ad by a veteran, but then, what the hey! There were only about 10 veterans events around the area last weekend. The SEAL muster and luau, the Marine C orps Ball, veterans displays at the Stuart Air Show, the memorial service on the river, another in Fort Pierce and the Veterans Day parade in Stuart, to name a few. We we re encouraged when a young lady from your paper took numerous pictures of our submarine float in the Stuart parade which, incidentally, won first place. After all, we worked very hard to get it there, along with the older vets in attendance. But alas, I eagerly scanned y our latest issue and found almost nothing. I guess the thing that bothers me most is that there are some 38,000 veterans living in St Lucie County. Add spouses and dependents and the total pushes 100,000 military-associated people. I would certainly have thought that the editor would give our cause a little more recognition, in view of the audience size and the holiday just passed. Whats next, sailors and dogs keep off the grass?

advertisements. The fine print on TV appears only for a second or two as a blur on the bottom of the screen and the radio audio disclosure is deliberately obfuscated by speeding up the sound track and lowering the volume. The reason car dealers use a stock number in the fine print is so they can abide by the Florida law that r equires the dealer fee be included in all advertised prices. This anemic law resulted from the powerful lobbying of the Florida Automobile D ealers Association. This means a salesman can quote you a price on new car in person, on the phone or via email without disclosing that there is an extra charge (without limit) that he can legally add after you have agreed to buy the car. A car dealer must only tell the truth about the full price of his cars when he advertises that specific car. The Kia dealer in West P alm Beach has three dealer fees totaling $971.45. He doesnt name any of them dealer fee. Florida law allows dealers to name this extra, hidden profit anything they choose. This just makes it easier for car dealers to hide this hidden profit from their customers. The Kia dealer decided to name one of his dealer fees delivery fee and it is $699.95. He probably chose this to make the customer believe this was for inspecting, washing and adjusting the new car. What most customers dont know is these costs are actually paid for by the manufacturer. His second dealer fee he chose to name document and handling fee and in the fine print on his buyers order says its preparation, processing and handling of the documents required in r egistration, filing and licensing of the vehicle and this extra profit to him is $218.55. This West Palm Beach Kia dealer does have expenses for processing and handling documents. He also has expenses for his monthly utility bills, sales commissions and lease payments for his building, not to mention his deceptive advertising. B ut businesses are supposed to include all of their expenses in the prices of the products they sell. They are not supposed to tell you the price and then make you pay their expenses on top of that price. The third dealer fee this K ia dealer chose to name electronic filing/private tag agency fee, which amounts to $64.95. He does pay a company to process his tag work but he doesnt pay them $64.95. Its $10 or $15 and then he marks it up and adds this to his profits. Yo u ll notice that all of the dealer fee names have something in common. They all end in fee. This is by design because the word fee has an official sounding sound about it. This is to lead you to believe that all of these fees are federal, state or local taxes or fees. One way to detect real fees from additional profit to the dealer is by whether or not the dealer charges y ou sales tax on that amount. He is required by law to pay Florida sales tax on the full, true selling price of the vehicle, which must include all of his profit and expenses, except for tax and tag. I hope Pam Bondi, F loridas attorney general, r eads this article. I wonder how she would feel if a r elative or friend of hers we re victimized by this dealer or one of the other F lorida car dealers, most of whom use the dealer fee and the phony Monroney to overcharge their customers. Maybe she would join me in mystery shopping some car dealers to learn how Florida car buyers are being victimized and then do something about it. Id love to have Ms. Bondi call my radio show sometime to discuss this. She can stream the show live any S aturday morning between 9 and 10 a.m. by clicking www.SeaviewRadio.com Ill gladly accept her call and put it ahead of my other callers so that she doesnt have to wait.

down over the Soviet Union. He was captured, much to our embarrassment, but not to our surprise. A military flight over enemy territory will not be greeted with a bouquet of flowers, although Donald Rumsfeld assured us we could expect as much when we invaded Iraq to relieve them of their dictator and all their w eapons of mass destruction. Of course they had them, intelligence agencies told him so. Well, Don was right about the dictator; he was there. R epublicans of the Tea Party are determined to undo all social progress made since the New Deal. That will not happen. Successful air showThe Stuart Air Show Nov. 9, 10 and 11 was a huge success. I would like to encourage all of S tuart and the surrounding areas to attend the Stuart Air Show in 2013. The show was full of talented aerial acts along with rides for the children and numerous displays of local businesses and fun treats to eat. We enjoyed facilitating the WWII battle reenactments for the air show. M any area nonprofits benefit from the air show, too numerous to mention. Please see the Stuart Air show website for the list of benefactors. I represent the Road to Victory Museum at 319 Stypmann Ave., in Stuart, behind Veterans Memorial Park. The museum is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. every Saturday and by appointment for private showings. The volunteers at the museum would be honored to have the community view the artifacts and historical vehicles from their collection. P lease consider a visit to our museum.Be skeptical of predictionsO ur federal government has spent $25 billion studying global warming. The rate of spending has increased each and every year. Environmental alarmists claim America is dying under a sea of pollution and the cities will soon be under water. Doomsday prophecies have grabbed headlines but computer models are frequently faulty. In the mid-1970s, computer models told us we should prepare for global cooling. Todays predictions should be greeted with a great deal of skepticism.Congratulations?C ongratulations to the Democrats. You have given your president the OK to finish the job of making the United States of America into a European socialist state. If you want to see what we will be like in the future, look at Greece and Spain and reflect on the r iots, stagnant economies, massive unemployment and complete social unrest!

MARTIN COUNTY A little time spent mentoring a child can make a big difference, said administrators of a local nonprofit looking to r ecruit volunteers. B ig Brothers Big Sisters of P alm Beach and Martin counties is urging residents to spend a little time to positively impact the life of one of the 275 children in its program. I t doesnt take anything to be a mentor. It just takes y our own life skills, said J eanie Flanagan, the groups customer relations specialist. The bottom line is to have some fun, let them talk about things and introduce them to new hobbies. B ut for the hundreds of children in the organization, spending time with mentors leads to several measurable improvements. Children with mentors have better school attendance, higher grades and are more likely to go to college. They also have improved self-esteem and several other positive changes, repr esentatives of the nonprofit said. A bout 96 percent maintain or improve their academic performance; 92 percent have better school attendance, 93 percent show improved behavior, 98 percent are promoted to the next grade level and 85 percent experience increased confidence in their own abilities. W e really are the gold standard of mentoring. Big Br others Big Sisters has been around for over 100 y ears, so we really know what were doing. We have some substantial stats that support what mentoring does, Ms. Flanagan said. Essentially were making good citizens in our own community. M entors, called big brothers or sisters, can participate in school or communitybased programs and help children learn career skills. M any children in the program have difficulty focusing or paying attention in school, and several come from single-parent homes. M entors typically spend about a year with their little brothers or sisters. B eing a big brother or big sister is one of the most enjoyable things youll ever do, not to mention one of the most fulfilling. You have the opportunity to help shape a childs future for the better by empowering him or her to achieve. And the best part is its actually a lot of fun. You and your little can share the kinds of activities you already like to do, Ms. Flanagan said. P lay sports together, go on a hike, read books, eat a pizza with extra anchovies, or just give some advice and inspiration. Whatever it is y ou enjoy, odds are youll enjoy it even more with your little, and youll be making a life-changing impact.

totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change, Rep. West said in a prepared statement. Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Mr. Murphy addressed Re p. W ests concession, calling it gracious. I am truly humbled that the voters of the 18th district have entrusted me to represent them in Washington. To those who supported my opponent, my door is open, and I want to hear your voice, he said in a press r elease. I campaigned on a message of reaching across the aisle to get things done for the people of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches. I am excited and honored to get to work. Re p. W ests concession came after the St. Lucie C ounty canvassing board voted to recount all eight days of early voting ballots, which took place over a two-day period on Nov. 17 and 18, so the elections office could meet the states elections deadline to report re sults by noon on Nov. 18. The results showed Mr. M urphy not only maintaining his lead from a previous r ecount, but increasing it by 242 votes. The final results in the county showed Mr. Murphy with 65,841 votes, while Re p. W est received 52,704 votes. In the district, Mr. M urphy won by 1,904 votes. S ince the difference between the two candidates was determined to be .58 percent, it did not meet the qualifications for an automatic recount of all the votes. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 30, 2012 Martin County A11 769803 769809 Full House for the Holidays?Let us be their home away from home!F or more information, Call(772) 828-4100 Clean Rooms Breakfast Everyday Housekeeping &concierge Service Fitness Center &Pool 040281772-464-0019Hours: Mon-Sat 1pm 9pmR E N T A L SA V A I L A B L E50% OFF! 50% OFF!Allregular pricedAdult DVDsADULTD VDsstarting atADULT VHS TAPESBuy 1 Adult at $4& Get Another at3223 S.

Hello, Forever Young readers. I have been working on this wonderful publication for more than a year now, behind the scenes, making sure that all the information ended up on the page and before your eyes. Now, with a few changes and some re va mping, Ive accepted the challenge of writing Fo rev er Young but will still help to produce it. It couldnt have come at a better time because the arts are a true love of mine, and the focus of the December edition of Fo rev er Young. When I was little, I remember the bus r ides from school to museums. There we re tons of museums to go to and as I walked around, bright-eyed and filled with wonder, I became fascinated with a world that was beautiful. Whether it was a science museum, Ripleys Believe It or Not in St. Augustine or an art museum, I was always enthralled with what was on each corner, wall and display. When I was 18, I took a trip to New Yo rk City. When my cousin asked what I wanted to see, the first place on my list was the Metropolitan Museum of Art. S urrounded by paintings, statues and jewelry from around the world through different periods of time, I fully understood the history around me. Each component of the arts, shows us glimpses into other worlds, one that is not in the here and now. They are a temporary distraction from life. My love of the arts is found not only in paintings, but in the beauty of music the well-choreographed steps of a ballet or the perfect reenactment of a character. This area of our beautiful state has more than enough to offer and December is bursting at the seams with plays, r ecitals, symphonies and museums focusing on the holidays. Theres no excuse not to get out of the house and watch the beautiful light displays. After all tis the season! There is so much to the holidays:3MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG Published monthly by Hometown News, L.C., 5059 Turnpike Feeder Road, Fort Pierce, FL 34951 Copyright 2012, Hometown News L.C.Circulation Inquiries: 1-866-913-6397 or circulation@hometownnewsol.comV oted No. 1 Community Newspaper in America by the Association of Free Community Papers.

S et during Prohibition, Bugsy M alone Jr. is filled with men in pinstripes after liquor and money and women after the jewels. Mrs. Jones, the director of the show, said she enjoys listening to the children talk in New York accents and use the lingo of the day. They all learn what their character is about, how they spoke with an accent and how they related to one another in that time period, Mrs. J ones said. The boys talk tough and the show girls are talking tough, too and singing these great songs and its hilarious because of their age and singing about adult issues. The cast has been practicing every week since early September with the hours getting longer the closer it gets to the show. I t s not just the show, Mrs. Jones said. Theyre also learning about stage presence and terminology like stage left and such.

6MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG One hour can be w orth generations Afew of years ago, I was planning a long weekend trip to the mountains for our wedding anniversary. We were flying from into Charlotte, N.C. I knew that it was close to where I needed to research, but I should forget that, it was my anniversary. How ever, I couldnt help checking the map and only one hour east was my research town. I needed to go west with my husband, not east to the library, right? But it was so close! The courthouse would be closed on Saturday and the library probably would be, too. B etter forget it, but it was so close! It happens that my fathers family and my mothers family both lived in Richmond County, N.C., between 1790 and 1836, in separate ends of the county. Each family had moved on in different directions I checked the library hours. Almost any North Carolina library has a great genealogy room with lots of local history. The library was open until 5 p.m. Saturday. I could land at Charlotte, rent the car and drive to Rockingham, and be there by 4 p.m. One whole hour in the library, then we could head west. For tunately, I have the most understanding husband in the world, and he doesnt mind r esearching and likes cemeteries as much as I do. He says, go for it, and so we actually pull up to the library in Rockingham, N.C. at 4 p .m. Saturday. It had a huge genealogy room. He took one side and I took the other and we spent the next 45 minutes going through local history material. Before closing, I went to the copy machine to copy the few things we found that might mean something at a later date. S tanding in line at the copy machine, I glance at a hand-drawn map Vernon has found in a thin little book. It has all the churches in the county marked. The booklet is the history of the churches in the county and has an index at the back. In the index is listed Knights Chapel. Q uickly looking this up through the book, I find that Knights Chapel was founded by Moses Knight in 1790. Moses Knight! Hes mine, and the chapel is marked at the state line right where he had lived. This is a great find. I copy the map and the page I need, and we are kicked out of the library at closing time. huge crush on the main role, Bugsy. S he is really pretty and she likes to go around dating boys so they would buy her things and make her even more pretty. Charlotte said it is the accents that make it more fun for the cast and the audience. Y ou really feel like youre part of the show because of it, not just y ou, Charlotte said. The accents are funny and it lets us feel more like were performing and acting and everything is just funnier. B ugsy Malone Jr. will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7 with a matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8.

7MA RT IN CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2012FOREVER YOUNG There is plenty of daylight left on a summer day in August, so we start visiting cemeteries looking for my mothers family, stopping to talk to neighbors and taking all their directions to the little cemeteries in the out-of-the-way places. This search brings no r esults and so I reluctantly decide to give up and continue on with our original plans. Knights Chapel is calling to me. It is right on U.S. 1 a few miles down the road at the state line. Of course that was in 1790. Before we leave town, I say to Vernon, Why dont we just drive down the road. Who knows, maybe there will be a big sign with Knights Chapel written on it? And so we do. There is no sign and no Knights Chapel, but after we cross into S outh Carolina we pass a little white church sitting far back on the road. Theres a church with a nice cemetery, do you want to look? The sign reads: New Hope M ethodist Church. That sounds familiar. I check the copied pages. M oses and William Knight founded Knights Chapel in 1790, which later became New Hope Methodist Church. Along the side there is a nice cemetery, and at the front, and sitting next to where the original church would have been, is a fenced-in section. Most of the stones remaining are the Knight family, some are Moses children. This is our family plot. It is S aturday night, tomorrow is S unday service at the church and there is no way I am going anywhere. We are going to church. As we walked into the church, all five elderly attendees turn to stare. Service was over, and they we re having Sunday school. They we re friendly and polite, but had no idea how or when the church was founded and didnt really seem to care. The Knight family is long since gone and they were only interested in their own families and anxious to tell me about them. The rest of Sunday school was spent on family stor ies. My little out-of-the-way trip to spend one hour in a library turned into a memory of a lifetime. W elcome to genealogy. One chance meeting, one quick stop, checking just one more source, can change the whole direction of y our research, or give you your ow n memorable experience. So take the chance and the time and go, for it!

There will be a jazz trio with a piano, bass and drums, dancers choreographed by Tasha Patterson and a select choir from the S outh Fork High School chorus. I have to say this is a huge undertaking, Ms. Colozzo said. I will be working with children in the show, including my daughter, and all the talent in the show. I am glad I can incorporate my family in it. At the end of the show there will be a sing-a-long where everyone gets involved and there could be a special appearance at the end of the night.

I ts latest addition is a cheerful and colorful tiki bar that has proven to be a popular spot, featuring a full menu with seafood specialties and a welcoming come-as-you-are atmosphere. C ool breezes, sandy terrain, teakwood furniture, beach-theme dcor and live music give the illusion of a seaside getaway that has boosted the bars success.

The restaurant is part of a 50r oom hotel with a deluxe two-bedr oom standalone cottage. And on weekends, it opens its pool to the public, making Pirates Cove a fun escape close to home. D etails are important at the r esort, and in the main dining r oom, guests eat with beautiful linen napkins with colorful floral prints. The menu is a mix of seafood specialties, pastas, steaks, ribs, sandwiches, soups and salads. It offers variety and reflects a carefully designed range of choices. One of the pirates favorites is a r oast pork dip sandwich with onion jus and Swiss cheese, served with French fries. It arrives on a perfectly toasted roll, stuffed with sumptuous, juicy roast pork and delicious, fresh onion jus. The sandwich is filling and the perfect hearty lunch. The restaurants grouper dishes are its signature plates, freshly caught and prepared to order. B ut its other fish dishes are also stellar. The almond tilapia, for instance, comes with garlic spinach and roasted peppers, and the Japanese crispy Arctic haddock has wok-fried vegetables and sweet red chilies. The sunset menu remains a favorite, priced at $14. Its entres include barbecue ribs, grilled Angus meatloaf, broiled salmon, jumbo friend shrimp, shrimp pasta primavera and tender chicken breast served grilled, blackened or fried. It also includes a salad, side dish and dessert. At dinner, the chef is perhaps at his best and Pirates Cove has an outstanding selection. The crab-stuffed shrimp is a favorite, offering jumbo Gulf shrimp stuffed with lump crab meat and topped with a citrus beurre blanc. The Florida crab cakes are also excellent, lightly seasoned and dusted with buttery cracker crumbs, fried and served with honey mustard sauce.
