TREASURE COAST A beginners class from the F lorida Oceanographic S ociety will offer fledgling bird watchers a chance to encounter native species, learn professional techniques, travel to prime nesting sites and meet fellow hobbyists. B irding 101 is a fourpart series offered on W ednesdays in January to bring together groups of up to 10 bird watchers. Par ticipants will learn the differences between popular field guides, and get a copy of a Florida guide among their enrollment materials. They will get tips on selecting and using the r ight binoculars, plus guidance on how to identify common birds. W e ll concentrate on coastal birds and a lot of the larger birds, such as herons, gulls and birds of prey, said Ellie Van Os, director of education and exhibits at F lorida Oceanographic S ociety. W e wont be looking for smaller birds and trying to distinguish them, because a lot of beginners get frustrated looking for sparrows and other wobblers. The goal, she said, will be to learn techniques they can then apply to enjoying the sport and seeking other species. The classes will take place Ja n. 9, 16, 23 and 30 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the F lorida Oceanographic C oastal Center, located at 890 N.E. Ocean Blvd., Stuart.

This year also marked H ometown News 10th anniversary and its growth in the last decade from a four-edition paper to one that covers about 250 miles on Floridas east coast. He re s a look back, in no particular order at some of the biggest Martin County stories of 2012: M onkees front man dies of heart attack On the last day of February, Davy Jones, 66, the 1960s teen idol who was lead singer for the Monkees, died from a heart attack suffered in I ndiantown. H is publicist Helen Kensick said Mr. Jones kept a stable of horses locally and was involved with several nonprofits, including the I ndiantown Education C oalitions annual fundraiser. Mr. Jones sang with the M onkees from 1965 to 1971. Their hits included Im a B eliever, Pleasant Valley S unday and Daydream B eliever. He suffered the heart attack at 9955 S.W. Fo x Brown Road and later died in hospital at Martin H ealth System. Inv estigators make arrest in 19-year-old cold case A former Stuart resident is jailed charged in the disappearance of Gail Parsons, a 10-year-old who disappeared on July 11, 1993. On Nov. 29, detectives arrested Chester Duane Pr ice, a 42-year-old convicted felon, and charged him in connection with the girls disappearance. Andrea disappeared after she went to buy candy from the neighborhood convenience store. B ased on a nearly twodecades-long investigation, detectives felt they had enough evidence to present to the state attorneys office for review and prosecution. A grand jury convened, which indicted Mr. Price. S hark attacks swimmer B each goers got a scare when a bull shark attacked a man surfing at Jensen Pub lic Beach in March. Mar tin County Ocean R escue closed the beach several times during the day after multiple shark sightings. R escue workers said the man suffered several bites on his left arm. The attack spurred reports of increased shark sightings in the area. Dr edging the St.Lucie I nlet C ommissioners approved a $6.4 million contract with Nor folk Dredging Company of Virginia to remove shoaling, or sand build up, in the inlet. The goal was to r estore the natural flow of water moving from north to south. Engineers said excessive sand accumulation would eventually block the waterway, closing it to boats and hurting the areas fishing and tourist industries. Nor folk Dredging undertook the project Jan. 24 with a goal to remove 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet.

Within days, the child lost all brain activity and was removed from life support, Stuart Police D etective Michael Rice said in a press release. Arrest records show Ms. French and her boyfriend, Charles William Dowell Jr., provided conflicting accounts of what happened to Bryson. Their accounts included stories of the child hitting his head during a bath and falling from the bed. B ut an autopsy later found the boy died from blunt head trauma, and the medical examiners office r uled the death a homicide. No further details about the circumstances surr ounding the childs death we re available at press time. A bout a year and a half after the boys death, investigators with the Stuart P olice Department and the Mar tin County Sheriffs Office arrested Mr. Dowell in connection with the incident. They charged him with first-degree murder and aggravated battery on a child. They continued the investigation and said they found evidence to build a case against Ms. French. Wor king with the state attorneys office, they convened a grand jury to hear the evidence. On Dec. 20, the grand jury handed down an indictment.

work ahead of schedule, leading commissioners to approve further dredging to r emove an additional 150,000 cubic yards of sand. W edding planner accused of jilting brides A 52-year-old Palm City businessman gave several area brides an unpleasant surprise when he disappeared into thin air with their deposits. Mo re than a dozen clients accused Marc Bergeron of absconding with their deposits, leaving them facing the prospect of cancelling weddings, birthday parties and other events for which many of them had paid in full. Law enforcement officers caught up with Mr. Bergeron in Texas. Arlington authorities arrested him following a routine traffic stop that led to the discovery of outstanding warrants in Florida. The one-time wedding planner faces charges of committing an organized scheme to defraud, as well as an unrelated charge stemming from violation of probation for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Crac kdown on pain clinics increases use of homemade drugs A crackdown on illegal drug dissemination at some re gional pain clinics had an unintentional consequence, leading to an increase in the use of methamphetamined. Law enforcement sources said prescription monitoring is making it difficult for addicts to obtain controlled substances, so some are manufacturing their own drugs. In Mar tin County, investigators from the sheriffs office and Drug Enforcement Administration busted their third meth lab on Nov. 29, after executing a search warrant at a Palm City home. Two months earlier, detectives with the special investigations unit arrested two people for manufacturing methamphetamine at a Stuart motel. G eneral election ushers in several new officials The 2012 elections brought runaway victories for some candidates and bitter contests for others. In the end, several newcomers ushered out the old guard. Dur ing the Republican primary last August longtime school board member Laurie Gaylord won the r ace for superintendent ov er incumbent Nancy Kline. Dur ing the general election, State Rep. William Sny der, R-Stuart, trounced his opponent, write-in candidate Trent Wetherald to capture nearly 96 percent of the vote for Martin County S heriff. B ut in the District 2 school board seat, a runoff election led Marsha Powers to a win over Tony George, who waived his right to a r ecount. After more than 79,400 of the countys 101,800 registered voters participated in the election, District 1commission contender Doug S mith, District 83s Gayle H arrell and District 82s Ma ryL ynn Magar all defeated write-in candidates. In S tuart, longtime community leader Eula Clarke re gained her commission seat and fellow commissioners later named her mayor. Long-time leaders depart The year also saw the departure of long-serving law enforcement officials and Stuarts fire chief. After nearly 14 years in the position, Stuart Police Chief Edward M. Morley r etired Sept. 30. Longtime Assistant Chief David Dyess took over the job Oct. 1. Also departing from the city was its first female fire chief, Lori Sunderman, who r etired Nov. 30. Assistant Fi re Chief David Dyal stepped into the role of interim chief during a ceremony on Dec. 1. Also leaving a longtime job was Sheriff Robert Crow der, who was one of the regions longest serving sheriffs.He is set to leave office Jan. 7, after a failed bid for U.S. Congress. B oaters uncover huge cocaine stash One of the biggest drug busts of the year came not for intense investigations but a discovery from unsuspecting boaters. Three boaters fishing about 8 miles northeast of the St. Lucie Inlet hauled in the nearly 42-pounds of cocaine when they recovered an unattended package they found floating in the water. D eputies conducted a search of the area and were unable to locate any other vessels. But they did seize the cocaine and scheduled it for destruction. C ommissioners pay tribute to longtime leader A former state legislators love of a local landmark led county commissioners to r ename it in his honor. W illiam G. Doc Myers, a longtime Hobe Sound resident, was a frequent visitor to the South County Ball Par k, and following a vote last July, commissioners r enamed the recreational site in his honor. Now called the William G. Doc Myers Park, the site sits on 25 acres, located at 10000 S. Dixie Highway. Mr. Myers died in 2010 at age 79. He was an area physician, who served as a Mar tin County commissioner in the 1960s and s, in the state house from 1978 to 1982 and in the state senate from 1982 to 2000. Long-time plan envisioned R egional planners are working on a 50-year economic development plan for Martin and six other counties in Southeast Florida. Se veral planning groups are working on a plan for Mar tin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Monroe, MiamiD ade, Broward and Palm B each counties. Theyve called the plan Se ven50, and say it is a blueprint for prosperous communities, a cleaner environment, improved education systems, more efficient transportation and stronger economies for the participating areas F riday, December 28, 2012 A4 Martin CountyHometown News 047338RE-MARKABLETHINGSLOCALand Locally owned upscale re-sale and consignment boutique25% OFFTOTALPURCHASEWITHTHISADPalmBay Location 1155 Malabar Rd(Next to Dollar General in the Big Lots Plaza)Melbourne Location 3122 Lake Washington Road(Publix Plaza)(321)914-7843 R obert J.

Kudos to the editorK udos to Hometown News editor for keeping a sharp eye on the fabricated facts some people send to this newspaper column. Like the writer who used a right-wing satire column as a fact to accuse the president of proposing that war veterans pay for their own medical insurance to help r educe the budget deficit and then called the presidents supporters mesmerized and uneducated. How w ell educated is this person unable to differentiate fact from satire? Or is he/she just practicing the FNN model to quote any statement against the president r egardless of its source or validity, counting on its misinformed audience to propagate the deception? M aybe he/she is just mesmerized by the other side. Thank you, Ms. Editor. Keep up the good work. Editors note: We think FNN stands for fuzzy neural network.Responding to bunch of bigotsHe re we go again, lumping everybody together. Question to the writer: The locals who are a bunch of bigots, r acists, narrow-minded, backward-thinking people living in this town, do these description also fit the family with whom you spent Thanksgiving or didnt you realize that y ou included them in your invectives? I have news for you, almost all of the above-classified people are transplants, relocated here from somewhere else within the past 20 years, brought their prejudices with them and infested the town. Those who do not consider themselves indebted to the men/women who gave their lives for our freedom are most definitely in the minority. The vast majority of us who do appreciate their sacrifices and do wish you wouldnt lump us as you see fit. As it is said: For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Wa ke up, ditto headsF or all you ultra-right wingers, Rush Limbaugh ditto heads wake up and give President Obama credit for his part to stop illegal immigration in its tracks. R eports are that more illegals are leaving the U.S., than are those entering. His economic policies that are leading us to a third world economy are working. In fact by 2016, if things continue, they will be chartering flights to return home. Lets ignore the constitution and give him a third term! In fact, I suggest making him the permanent president and F lorida/St. Lucie wont have to be the laughingstock of every election in the future. Lets hear it for Obama and his new Banana Republic. Wa ke up, AmericaBur ning the flag, protesting at a soldiers funeral, prohibiting religious symbols and same sex marriage are all OK, but own a semi-automatic firearm and you are judged a criminal. We better wake up and look down the path Obama and his henchman are taking us.Regarding assault weaponsW ith the recent tragedy, there is a lot of discussion about banning assault weapons. The definition of an assault w eapon has changed over the years to fit the agenda of lawmakers, such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein. An assault weapon initially was a weapon used primarily by the military, which had a selector switch, allowing the user to switch between semi and automatic fire. Semiautomatic fire is when one round is fired each time the trigger is pulled. When the switch is in the auto position, the rifle will continue to fire as long as the trigger is depressed. The rifle used at the recent shooting was a semi-automatic rifle designed to look like a military assault rifle. B asically it is a clone. Several standard-looking rifles use the same round, the only difference is that the one used at the shooting was made to look like a military rifle. This tragedy could have been prevented if a more aggressive mental health treatment program had been sought and that steps had been taken to secure firearms in the home. P utting the blame on the firearm is an agenda to score political points, not a solution to the problem.A sk for guidanceThe first thing we should do as Americans, Americans of all faiths, is to pray to God for guidance about the tragedy in Connecticut. God help us if we take Him out of the equation. The last thing we need is another expensive government program framed by President Obama and a bunch of self-serving Washington politicians.W ar on povertyIn launching his War on Poverty, President Lyndon J ohnson pledged it would make people self-sufficient. I nstead, people raised on government goodies are more dependent than ever before. W elfare spending is at an all-time high. Its driving this nation toward bankruptcy. Per haps even worse, its teaching recipients they can get something for nothing. It isnt helping them. Its teaching them they can do nothing. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Strong password r equirements (using upper and lower cases, at least one number and maybe a special character) cause a lot of frustration for computer users. There is however, a way to manage y our passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Lets start at the beginning: the computers login screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password. Now sure, I know what some of you are thinking, I dont have to enter a password when my machine boots up so you must be wrong. W ell, that isnt entirely true, its just that most machines will give the user the ability to either auto logon or not require a password at all at boot up. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. People dont want to be bothered entering their password every time, so the system gets set up without it. Su re its convenient, but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all your stuff. M any people choose to go this route thinking that H ey, Im the only one who uses this machine so I dont need it asking for a password every time but if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If its a desktop machine the argument seems a little more valid, but it wont protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the internet). The fact of the matter is if y our machine is connected to a network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. W eak passwords may be easy to remember, but they are often short dictionary words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. P asswords such as god, monkey or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember but they are also the first things these password cracking utilities will try. Thats why many sites (and programs) will insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. M onKey!387 is a hell of a lot harder for someone to crack than just the word monkey. Sure, it may be a little more inconvenient but using a weak password will just give you a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is in using one password for everything. The r easoning is well, I cant r emember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem. I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows login, email, etc. is convenient, but a problem can arise if y our password does get cracked. Its common practice for hackers (when they discover someones user name and password) to try that same username and password pair everywhere. Again, there are tools out there that will allow someone to enter a username and password and the program then goes and tries them on hundreds of sites (such as AOL and Facebook) and then provides the hacker a list of all the sites where the password works. U sing the same password everywhere is one of the ways hackers are able to take over all of the services that you use. It may be a bit inconvenient, but using a different password for everyProtect your computer with strong passwords COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY THIS WEEKS LUCKY THIS WEEKS LUCKYBUMPER STICKER VEHICLE Is this is your license plate number?

N othing could be further from the truth. The wholesale books dealers use and those available online to consumers have varying degrees of accuracy, but y ou cant rely on a book tell y ou the best price at which y ou can sell or trade in y our car. The most accurate book is the Manheim Auto G uide because its based on the latest wholesale auctions nationwide and its updated weekly and daily online. The least accurate book is the NADA guide, which relies solely on surveys sent to dealers. The dealers exaggerate the wholesale value of their makes to make it easier to take in trades. All of the wholesale books, except NADA, are based on prices of cars sold at auction. However, you must understand those prices dont give you an accurate price that you should expect for your trade. A car sells at an auction for the price offered by the highest bidder if the seller chooses to accept that bid. I often dont sell my used cars to the highest bidder that week because I might get a much higher price the next week. Lots of things affect the level of prices at a car auction, the weather, holidays, bribing the auctioneer and bribing the buyers. On a cold, rainy day when few dealers show up to buy or sell cars, prices are lower, as well as shortly before and after holidays. S ometimes it happens that a buyer greases the palm of the auctioneer so that he doesnt hear (fast gavel) the higher bid from another dealer who bids higher than the dealer who has let the auctioneer know the price at which he wants to buy the car. S ometimes the sellers pay the buyers cash under the table to bid an unrealistically high price for their car.

to go through the auction block for the owner to believe it was sold at the auction. Buyers and sellers can make a deal before it goes through the block. Ve ry cozy, only one bidder. Why would they do that? Often the buyers and sellers are employed by the dealer who actually owns the car. The used car manager or wholesale buyer employed by the dealer might pay $2,000 too much for a car if he can earn $500 cash in his pocket from the seller. His boss, the dealer, is never the wiser. Let me hasten to add that the Manheim auctions are very careful to police these kinds of shenanigans and never encourage them. Howev er, as in every large organization there are a few r otten apples. OK, then, if the books are wrong and the auctions are wrong, then surely the car dealer must know the value of my trade-in? Wrong again. I have a little test on usedcar appraisal knowledge that I administer to my sales managers from time to time. By the way, my managers are among the most knowledgeable and competent anywhere. This isnt just my opinion, but that of all of their peers in this market. My test goes like this. W ithout prior notice I r andomly select a car from among the 100 or so that come into my service department each day. I ask each of my eight mangers individually to appraise this car for what they think the current wholesale market v alue is. They keep their appraisal secret from the others and write it down on a piece of paper and hand it to me. Ive been doing this for 30 or more years and Ive never had a variance in appraisals of less than $3,000. Some have been greater than $10,000! The reason I do this is to remind all of my mangers of exactly what Im explaining in this article. N obody knows the exact v alue of a used car. Thats important to my managers because under appraising a used car can cost us a sale. Over appraising a used car can cost us a wholesale loss at the auto auction. Therefore, we always check and recheck our appraisals and go so far as to call other dealers and even put cars on Ebay. Another good reason not to accept only one dealers appraisal is that dealers will often knowingly undervalue y our trade-in, especially if yo u ve negotiated a very low price for your new car. The dealer vernacular for his is stealing the trade. Now that weve established that nobody has any idea what your trade-in is worth, what does that mean to you? It means you should stop worrying about getting an accurate appraisal different types of investments, changing tax laws, the effects of inflation, interest rate movements and much more. Furthermore, when youre making investment decisions on y our own, you may have a hard time being objective so y ou might end up investing with your heart and not y our head. The need for knowledge and objectivity are two advantages of working with an experienced financial professional, someone who understands both the financial markets and your individual needs and goals. These arent the only financial resolutions you could make for 2013 but if y ou follow through on them, you may well need to make fewer ones when 2014 ro lls around.

C oast. I m just astounded by the amount of toys and shoes donated. S upporters donated enough toys to fill 80 extralarge gift bags with several presents for children in YMCA programs. Organizers also had so much left ov er they donated puzzles and board games to the C ouncil on Aging, pet supplies to the Humane Society and more than 1,000 toys to children at Safe S pace, the domestic violence shelter in Stuart and Ve ro Beach. Donors also gave more than 40 pairs of sneakers and cash to take preschoolers shopping for new shoes. E verything stayed in the community, Ms. Wood said. We give the items to parents and allow them the opportunity to give their kids a good Christmas. Its r ewarding for everyone to be part of lighting up a childs Christmas. Children from Martin, St. L ucie, Indian River and O keechobee counties benefitted from the fundraiser. The event was also a chance for the group to r aise public awareness about its work across the r egion, providing several services including day care for children from preschool to high school. The nonprofit focuses on health and recreation, providing summer camps, swimming lessons and sports programs that include basketball, soccer, archery, flag football, cheerleading, gymnastics and hockey. It needs to raise about $200,000 each year to cover the cost of its programs. Now in its fourth year, organizers said this jingle bell run was the most successful, attracting people of all ages and levels of athleticism. Among those participating was YMCA member M ike Manning. I m not a runner, but I r un this event every year because it feels good to support my local Y and what they do for our local families in need, Mr. Manning said. F or more information on the YMCA,visit www.Ymcatreasurecoast.org.ComputeF rom page A6T oysF rom page A1 because theres no such thing. However, what you should positively insist on is getting the highest appraisal. In fact, you should hope that the guy who gave you the highest appraisal was very inaccurate and made a huge mistake that will cost his dealership a large wholesale loss at the auction. You accomplish this by never accepting only the appraisal by the car dealer from whom youre buying your next car. Before y ou allow him to appraise y our car, you should get at least two other bids from dealers of the make of car y ou are buying. F or example, a Ford dealer will usually appraise a Ford for more than a H onda dealer because more people wanting to buy a used Ford will shop the larger selection at a Fo rd dealer. D eal directly with the used car department at these other dealerships. Tell the used car manager that y ou need to sell your car for cash and that youre getting two more bids from two other dealers. If you have the time to get more than two more bids its even better. Another good place to get a bid on your used car is from CarMax, the largest r etailer of used cars in the world. They buy lots of cars directly from owners even when they dont buy a car from CarMax. Their prices are sometimes higher than dealers will offer you. After you determine the highest bidder, if its not the dealer from whom youre buying, give him the right of last refusal. If he can match the price from his competitor, you save the sales tax on the price of y our trade.

Lucie man is looking to revive an art form he describes as the hippy play, and he wants the help of local artists to do it. D ante John Nazzaro, a playwright who founded the Organic Theatre Company in Jensen Beach in 1997, is looking to stage a r evival of the type of plays popular in the 1960s. He s issued an open call for actors, writers, musicians and other artists to start working on productions theyll stage at Roosters Daytime Caf in Jensen B each, beginning as early as January. The s was an era of peace and love, the era of G odspell, Hairspray and J esus Christ Superstar, he said. These plays would be an extension of that. He s looking for about 10 actors to cast two plays. The first production, called The Marriage of the U niverse, has been staged in Jensen Beach and New Je rsey. It tells the story of a mystical union ceremony that unites the world. The other play, called The Dictionary, is the work of Port St. Lucie writer Janet Smith. Its the story of a woman who sits on a park bench and speaks only the truth to everyone she encounters. The concept of an organic theater centers on the idea of artists working together and allowing their work to naturally evolve. A bout 10 actors, musicians, singers and writers have responded to the call so far. TJ Kronowit, co-owner of Roosters Daytime Caf, said she welcomes the idea and the local effort to r evive a genre. D ante is a free spirit, free thinker. He has had his organic theater in the community for several y ears before, and I think the acommunity could use something like that again, she said. Theres a resurgence of poets, writers and musicians coming to the area, and theres a really good atmosphere and energy when they all get together. R oosters, located at 891 N.E. Jensen Beach Blvd., closes after lunch. The theater troupe will resume meeting at the caf on M onday and Tuesday evenings in January. Members will also use the space there, which allows sitting r oom for about 50, to stage productions. F or more information, call (302) 569-0860. HOBE SOUND On J an. 19, The Pine School will host the sixth annual 100 Years of Cars show from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on its U pper School campus in H obe Sound. R ocky and Henry Grady, co-chairs of the event, and their committee have been working since the summer to organize the show. The Gradys, who have been involved with 100 Y ears of Cars since its 2008 founding, are motivated by more than just their love of automobiles. They are committed to the cause behind the show, The Pine Schools patriot scholarship fund, which provides tuition assistance to children of retired and active military personnel. This year, the Gradys are determined to raise a r ecord total of funds. Over the past six years, 100 Years of Cars has helped underwrite scholarships for seven deserving students at The Pine School, including Cole P osey, currently a sophomore. H is mother, Heather P osey, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force Reserve and 1989 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, said the patriot scholarship has made a major difference in her sons life. The patriot scholarship has afforded our son an opportunity to excel in high school, as well as future life and learning. The Pine School experience has nurtured Coles confidence and character through various leadership r oles throughout the school community, Ms. P osey said. W e are extremely grateful to have our son at what we consider to be the best college preparatory school in South Florida. Pr izes will be awarded for best in class and in four other categories: best in show, The Pine School award for most popular car, the manufacturers trophy and the veterans award. The show is a family friendly event featuring live music and activities for children. Pizza and beverages will be on sale in the schools dining hall during the show and multiple vendors will serve their own dishes. Concession stands will also be open throughout the event site.

Whatever your religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season. I love this time of year. Its a time for families and friends to be together a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women are making for us. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how you feel about them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. As tough as times are these days, there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. We still have our family, our friends and ourselves. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. Think of something or someone that makes you happy and hold that close. At this time of year we all tend to be more human, more kind and more caring. My wish is that we would just keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I give you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.

TREASURE COAST A beginners' class from the F lorida Oceanographic S ociety will offer fledgling bird watchers a chance to encounter native species, learn professional techniques, travel to prime nesting sites and meet fellow hobbyists. "B irding 101" is a fourpart series offered on W ednesdays in January to bring together groups of up to 10 bird watchers. Pa r ticipants will learn the differences between popular field guides, and get a copy of a Florida guide among their enrollment materials. They will get tips on selecting and using the r ight binoculars, plus guidance on how to identify common birds. "W e' ll concentrate on coastal birds and a lot of the larger birds, such as herons, gulls and birds of prey," said Ellie Van Os, director of education and exhibits at F lorida Oceanographic S ociety. "W e won't be looking for smaller birds and trying to distinguish them, because a lot of beginners get frustrated looking for sparrows and other wobblers." The goal, she said, will be to learn techniques they can then apply to enjoying the sport and seeking other species. The classes will take place Ja n. 9, 16, 23 and 30 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the F lorida Oceanographic C oastal Center, located at 890 N.E. Ocean Blvd., Stuart. The first two meetings will run until 4 p.m., but the last two involve field tripsMother charged in infant's deathMARTIN COUNTY A grand jury has indicted a 20-year-old woman in the death of her 3month-old baby.

Av enue business district. M aking the headlines we re everything from shark attacks, projects with national implications, heated commission hearings and the death of an international icon. This year also marked H ometown News' 10th anniversary and its growth in the last decade from a four-edition paper to one that covers about 250 miles on Florida's east coast. He re 's a look back, in no particular order at some of the biggest Martin County stories of 2012: M onkees front man dies of heart attack On the last day of February, Davy Jones, 66, the 1960s teen idol who was lead singer for the Monkees, died from a heart attack suffered in I ndiantown. H is publicist Helen Kensick said Mr. Jones kept a stable of horses locally and was involved with several nonprofits, including the I ndiantown Education C oalition's annual fundraiser. Mr. Jones sang with the M onkees from 1965 to 1971. Their hits included "I'm a B eliever," "Pleasant Valley S unday" and "Daydream B eliever." He suffered the heart attack at 9955 S.W. Fo x Brown Road and later died in hospital at Martin H ealth System. In v estigators make arrest in 19-year-old cold case A former Stuart resident is jailed charged in the disappearance of Gail Parsons, a 10-year-old who disappeared on July 11, 1993. On Nov. 29, detectives arrested Chester Duane Pr ice, a 42-year-old convicted felon, and charged him in connection with the girl's disappearance. Andrea disappeared after she went to buy candy from the neighborhood convenience store. B ased on a nearly twodecades-long investigation, detectives felt they had enough evidence to present to the state attorney's office for review and prosecution. A grand jury convened, which indicted Mr. Price. S hark attacks swimmer B each goers got a scare when a bull shark attacked a man surfing at Jensen Pub lic Beach in March. Ma r tin County Ocean R escue closed the beach several times during the day after multiple shark sightings. R escue workers said the man suffered several bites on his left arm. The attack spurred reports of increased shark sightings in the area. Dr edging the St.Lucie I nlet C ommissioners approved a $6.4 million contract with No r folk Dredging Company of Virginia to remove shoaling, or sand build up, in the inlet. The goal was to r estore the natural flow of water moving from north to south. Engineers said excessive sand accumulation would eventually block the waterway, closing it to boats and hurting the area's fishing and tourist industries. No r folk Dredging undertook the project Jan. 24 with a goal to remove 300,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet.

Within days, the child lost all brain activity and was removed from life support, Stuart Police D etective Michael Rice said in a press release. Arrest records show Ms. Fr ench and her boyfriend, Charles William Dowell Jr., provided conflicting accounts of what happened to Bryson. Their accounts included stories of the child hitting his head during a bath and falling from the bed. B ut an autopsy later found the boy died from blunt head trauma, and the medical examiner's office r uled the death a homicide. No further details about the circumstances surr ounding the child's death we re available at press time. A bout a year and a half after the boy's death, investigators with the Stuart P olice Department and the Ma r tin County Sheriff's Office arrested Mr. Dowell in connection with the incident. They charged him with first-degree murder and aggravated battery on a child. They continued the investigation and said they found evidence to build a case against Ms. French. Wo r king with the state attorney's office, they convened a grand jury to hear the evidence. On Dec. 20, the grand jury handed down an indictment. Ms. French is being held without bond at the Martin C ounty Jail.Photo courtesy Martin County Sheriff OfficeSgt.

work ahead of schedule, leading commissioners to approve further dredging to r emove an additional 150,000 cubic yards of sand. W edding planner accused of jilting brides A 52-year-old Palm City businessman gave several area brides an unpleasant surprise when he "disappeared into thin air" with their deposits. Mo re than a dozen clients accused Marc Bergeron of absconding with their deposits, leaving them facing the prospect of cancelling weddings, birthday parties and other events for which many of them had paid in full. Law enforcement officers caught up with Mr. Bergeron in Texas. Arlington authorities arrested him following a routine traffic stop that led to the discovery of outstanding warrants in Florida. The one-time wedding planner faces charges of committing an organized scheme to defraud, as well as an unrelated charge stemming from violation of probation for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Crac kdown on pain clinics increases use of homemade drugs A crackdown on illegal drug dissemination at some re gional pain clinics had an unintentional consequence, leading to an increase in the use of methamphetamined. Law enforcement sources said prescription monitoring is making it difficult for addicts to obtain controlled substances, so some are manufacturing their own drugs. In Ma r tin County, investigators from the sheriff's office and Drug Enforcement Administration busted their third meth lab on No v. 29, after executing a search warrant at a Palm City home. Two months earlier, detectives with the special investigations unit arrested two people for manufacturing methamphetamine at a Stuart motel. G eneral election ushers in several new officials The 2012 elections brought runaway victories for some candidates and bitter contests for others. In the end, several newcomers ushered out the old guard. Du r ing the Republican primary last August longtime school board member Laurie Gaylord won the r ace for superintendent ov er incumbent Nancy Kline. Du r ing the general election, State Rep. William Sn y der, R-Stuart, trounced his opponent, write-in candidate Trent Wetherald to capture nearly 96 percent of the vote for Martin County S heriff. B ut in the District 2 school board seat, a runoff election led Marsha Powers to a win over Tony George, who waived his right to a r ecount. After more than 79,400 of the county's 101,800 registered voters participated in the election, District 1commission contender Doug S mith, District 83's Gayle H arrell and District 82's Ma ry L ynn Magar all defeated write-in candidates. In S tuart, longtime community leader Eula Clarke re gained her commission seat and fellow commissioners later named her mayor. Long-time leaders depart The year also saw the departure of long-serving law enforcement officials and Stuart's fire chief. After nearly 14 years in the position, Stuart Police Chief Edward M. Morley r etired Sept. 30. Longtime Assistant Chief David Dyess took over the job Oct. 1. Also departing from the city was its first female fire chief, Lori Sunderman, who r etired Nov. 30. Assistant Fi re Chief David Dyal stepped into the role of interim chief during a ceremony on Dec. 1. Also leaving a longtime job was Sheriff Robert Cr ow der, who was one of the region's longest serving sheriffs.He is set to leave office Jan. 7, after a failed bid for U.S. Congress. B oaters uncover huge cocaine stash One of the biggest drug busts of the year came not for intense investigations but a discovery from unsuspecting boaters. Three boaters fishing about 8 miles northeast of the St. Lucie Inlet hauled in the nearly 42-pounds of cocaine when they recovered an unattended package they found floating in the water. D eputies conducted a search of the area and were unable to locate any other vessels. But they did seize the cocaine and scheduled it for destruction. C ommissioners pay tribute to longtime leader A former state legislator's love of a local landmark led county commissioners to r ename it in his honor. W illiam G. "Doc" Myers, a longtime Hobe Sound resident, was a frequent visitor to the South County Ball Pa r k, and following a vote last July, commissioners r enamed the recreational site in his honor. No w called the William G. Doc" Myers Park, the site sits on 25 acres, located at 10000 S. Dixie Highway. Mr. Myers died in 2010 at age 79. He was an area physician, who served as a Ma r tin County commissioner in the 1960s and 70s, in the state house from 1978 to 1982 and in the state senate from 1982 to 2000. Long-time plan envisioned R egional planners are working on a 50-year economic development plan for Martin and six other counties in Southeast Florida. Se veral planning groups are working on a plan for Ma r tin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Monroe, MiamiD ade, Broward and Palm B each counties.

A6 VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, DEC. 28, 2012 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Students help seniorsSevin Bullwinkle /staff photographerCole Henry Andree, 7, Zane Samies Soulh, 9, Blair Stoneburg, 8, Brock Glover, 9, Cooper Larkan, 7, Jude Vanzyl, 10 and Sebastian Roselle, 10, all Jensen Beach Elementary students with the Science, Math, Art, Research and Technology lab program, share ideas on customizing walkers to make them more colorful and attractive, at the school on W ednesday, Nov. 28. Kudos to the editorK udos to Hometown News editor for keeping a sharp eye on the fabricated facts some people send to this newspaper column. Like the writer who used a right-wing satire column as a fact to accuse the president of proposing that war veterans pay for their own medical insurance to help r educe the budget deficit and then called the president's supporters "mesmerized and uneducated." How w ell educated is this person unable to differentiate fact from satire? Or is he/she just practicing the FNN model to quote any statement against the president r egardless of its source or validity, counting on its misinformed audience to propagate the deception? M aybe he/she is just mesmerized by the other side. Thank you, Ms. Editor. Keep up the good work. Editor's note: We think FNN stands for fuzzy neural network.Responding to bunch of bigots'He re we go again, lumping everybody together. Question to the writer: The "locals" who are "a bunch of bigots, r acists, narrow-minded, backward-thinking people living in this town," do these description also fit the family with whom you spent Thanksgiving or didn't you realize that y ou included them in your invectives? I have news for you, almost all of the above-classified people are transplants, relocated here from somewhere else within the past 20 years, brought their prejudices with them and infested the town. Those who do not consider themselves indebted to the men/women who gave their lives for our freedom are most definitely in the minority. The vast majority of us who do appreciate their sacrifices and do wish you wouldn't lump us as you see fit. As it is said: "For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." Wa ke up, ditto headsF or all you ultra-right wingers, Rush Limbaugh ditto heads wake up and give President Obama credit for his part to stop illegal immigration in its tracks. R eports are that more illegals are leaving the U.S., than are those entering. His economic policies that are leading us to a third world economy are working. In fact by 2016, if things continue, they will be chartering flights to return home. Let's ignore the constitution and give him a third term! In fact, I suggest making him the permanent president and F lorida/St. Lucie won't have to be the laughingstock of every election in the future. Let's hear it for Obama and his new Banana Republic. Wa ke up, AmericaBu r ning the flag, protesting at a soldier's funeral, prohibiting religious symbols and same sex marriage are all OK, but own a semi-automatic firearm and you are judged a criminal. We better wake up and look down the path Obama and his henchman are taking us.Regarding assault weaponsW ith the recent tragedy, there is a lot of discussion about banning assault weapons. The definition of an assault w eapon has changed over the years to fit the agenda of lawmakers, such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein. An assault weapon initially was a weapon used primarily by the military, which had a selector switch, allowing the user to switch between semi and automatic fire. Semiautomatic fire is when one round is fired each time the trigger is pulled. When the switch is in the auto position, the rifle will continue to fire as long as the trigger is depressed. The rifle used at the recent shooting was a semi-automatic rifle designed to look like a military assault rifle. B asically it is a clone. Several standard-looking rifles use the same round, the only difference is that the one used at the shooting was made to look like a military rifle. This tragedy could have been prevented if a more aggressive mental health treatment program had been sought and that steps had been taken to secure firearms in the home. P utting the blame on the firearm is an agenda to score political points, not a solution to the problem.A sk for guidanceThe first thing we should do as Americans, Americans of all faiths, is to pray to God for guidance about the tragedy in Connecticut. God help us if we take Him out of the equation. The last thing we need is another expensive government program framed by President Obama and a bunch of self-serving Washington politicians.W ar on povertyIn launching his "War on Poverty," President Lyndon J ohnson pledged it would make people self-sufficient. I nstead, people raised on government goodies are more dependent than ever before. W elfare spending is at an all-time high. It's driving this nation toward bankruptcy. Pe r haps even worse, it's teaching recipients they can get something for nothing. It isn't helping them. It's teaching them they can do nothing. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Strong password r equirements (using upper and lower cases, at least one number and maybe a special character) cause a lot of frustration for computer users. There is however, a way to manage y our passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Let's start at the beginning: the computer's login screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password. Now sure, I know what some of you are thinking, "I don't have to enter a password when my machine boots up so you must be wrong." W ell, that isn't entirely true, it's just that most machines will give the user the ability to either auto logon or not require a password at all at boot up. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. People don't want to be bothered entering their password every time, so the system gets set up without it. Su re it's convenient, but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all your stuff. M any people choose to go this route thinking that "H ey, I'm the only one who uses this machine so I don't need it asking for a password every time" but if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If it's a desktop machine the argument seems a little more valid, but it won't protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the internet). The fact of the matter is if y our machine is connected to a network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. W eak passwords may be easy to remember, but they are often short "dictionary" words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. P asswords such as "god," monkey" or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember but they are also the first things these password cracking utilities will try. That's why many sites (and programs) will insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. "M onKey!387" is a hell of a lot harder for someone to crack than just the word monkey." Sure, it may be a little more inconvenient but using a weak password will just give you a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is in using one password for everything. The r easoning is "well, I can't r emember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem." I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows login, email, etc. is convenient, but a problem can arise if y our password does get cracked. It's common practice for hackers (when they discover someone's user name and password) to try that same username and password pair everywhere. Again, there are tools out there that will allow someone to enter a username and password and the program then goes and tries them on hundreds of sites (such as AOL and Facebook) and then provides the hacker a list of all the sites where the password works. U sing the same password everywhere is one of the ways hackers are able to take over all of the services that you use. It may be a bit inconvenient, but using a different password for everyProtect your computer with strong passwords COMP UTE T HISSE AN MCCARTHY THIS WEEKS LUCKY THIS WEEKS LUCKYBUMPER STICKER VEHICLE Is this is your license plate number?

This year, in addition to promising yourself that yo u' ll hit the gym more often, learn a new language or take up a musical instrument all worthy goals, of course why not set some financial resolutions? C onsider these suggestions: Boost your retirement account contributions. If y our income will rise this y ear, consider putting more money into your employersponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k), 403(b) and 457(b). You typically contribute pre-tax dollars to y our plan, so the more you put in, the lower your taxable income. Plus, your money can have taxdeferred growth potential. Don't overreact to headlines. Lately, you've heard a lot about the "fiscal cliff," political paralysis, the debt ceiling and other really scary topics. These issues are not insignificant but should they keep you from investing? After all, in any given year, you won't have to look hard to find warnings and negative news events and many people do use these ominous-sounding headlines as a reason to head to the investment sidelines" for awhile. B ut if you're not investing, yo u' re unquestionably missing out on opportunities to make progress toward y our financial goals. So instead of focusing on the news of the day, make your investment decisions based on the fundamentals of those investments you may be considering, along with y our goals, risk tolerance and time horizon. Keep whittling away y our debt. Over the past few y ears, Americans have done a good job of lowering their debt burdens. Of course, the economy is still tough, and it can be challenging to avoid taking on new debts. B ut the less debt you have, the more you can invest for y our retirement and other important objectives. Rebalance your portfolio to accommodate your risk tolerance. If you spend too much time worrying about the ups and downs of your investments, then your portfolio's potential for volatility may be too great for your individual risk tolerance. On the other hand, if you continually see little growth in your holdings, even when the financial markets are going strong, you may be investing too conservatively especially if you are willing to take on some calculated r isk to potentially boost y our returns.

N othing could be further from the truth. The wholesale books dealers use and those available online to consumers have varying degrees of accuracy, but y ou can't rely on a book tell y ou the best price at which y ou can sell or trade in y our car. The most accurate book is the "Manheim Auto G uide" because it's based on the latest wholesale auctions nationwide and it's updated weekly and daily online. The least accurate book is the NADA guide, which relies solely on surveys sent to dealers. The dealers exaggerate the wholesale value of their makes to make it easier to take in trades. All of the wholesale books, except NADA, are based on prices of cars sold at auction. However, you must understand those prices don't give you an accurate price that you should expect for your trade. A car sells at an auction for the price offered by the highest bidder if the seller chooses to accept that bid. I often don't sell my used cars to the highest bidder that week because I might get a much higher price the next week. Lots of things affect the level of prices at a car auction, the weather, holidays, bribing the auctioneer and bribing the buyers. On a cold, rainy day when few dealers show up to buy or sell cars, prices are lower, as well as shortly before and after holidays. S ometimes it happens that a buyer "greases the palm" of the auctioneer so that he "doesn't hear" (fast gavel) the higher bid from another dealer who bids higher than the dealer who has let the auctioneer know the price at which he wants to buy the car. S ometimes the sellers pay the buyers cash under the table to bid an unrealistically high price for their car. A car doesn't even have FINA NC IALJAMIE C HAPOGAS ON CARSEARL STEWART See CHAOPGAS, A8 See S TEWART, A8

to go through the auction block for the owner to believe it was "sold at the auction." Buyers and sellers can make a deal before it goes "through the block." Ve ry cozy, only one bidder. Why would they do that? Often the buyers and sellers are employed by the dealer who actually owns the car. The used car manager or wholesale buyer employed by the dealer might pay $2,000 too much for a car if he can earn $500 cash in his pocket from the seller. His boss, the dealer, is never the wiser. Let me hasten to add that the Manheim auctions are very careful to police these kinds of shenanigans and never encourage them. Howev er, as in every large organization there are a few r otten apples. OK, then, if the books are wrong and the auctions are wrong, then surely the car dealer must know the value of my trade-in? Wrong again. I have a little "test" on usedcar appraisal knowledge that I administer to my sales managers from time to time. By the way, my managers are among the most knowledgeable and competent anywhere. This isn't just my opinion, but that of all of their peers in this market. My test goes like this. W ithout prior notice I r andomly select a car from among the 100 or so that come into my service department each day. I ask each of my eight mangers individually to appraise this car for what they think the current wholesale market v alue is. They keep their appraisal secret from the others and write it down on a piece of paper and hand it to me. I've been doing this for 30 or more years and I've never had a variance in appraisals of less than $3,000. Some have been greater than $10,000! The reason I do this is to remind all of my mangers of exactly what I'm explaining in this article. N obody knows the exact v alue of a used car. That's important to my managers because under appraising a used car can cost us a sale. Over appraising a used car can cost us a wholesale loss at the auto auction. Therefore, we always check and recheck our appraisals and go so far as to call other dealers and even put cars on Ebay. Another good reason not to accept only one dealer's appraisal is that dealers will often knowingly undervalue y our trade-in, especially if yo u' ve negotiated a very low price for your new car. The dealer vernacular for his is stealing the trade." No w that we've established that nobody has any idea what your trade-in is worth, what does that mean to you? It means you should stop worrying about getting an accurate appraisal different types of investments, changing tax laws, the effects of inflation, interest rate movements and much more. Furthermore, when you're making investment decisions on y our own, you may have a hard time being objective so y ou might end up investing with your heart and not y our head. The need for knowledge and objectivity are two advantages of working with an experienced financial professional, someone who understands both the financial markets and your individual needs and goals. These aren't the only financial resolutions you could make for 2013 but if y ou follow through on them, you may well need to make fewer ones when 2014 ro lls around.

C oast. "I 'm just astounded by the amount of toys and shoes donated." S upporters donated enough toys to fill 80 extralarge gift bags with several presents for children in YMCA programs. Organizers also had so much left ov er they donated puzzles and board games to the C ouncil on Aging, pet supplies to the Humane Society and more than 1,000 toys to children at Safe S pace, the domestic violence shelter in Stuart and Ve ro B each. Donors also gave more than 40 pairs of sneakers and cash to take preschoolers shopping for new shoes. "E verything stayed in the community," Ms. Wood said. "We give the items to parents and allow them the opportunity to give their kids a good Christmas. It's r ewarding for everyone to be part of lighting up a child's Christmas." Children from Martin, St. L ucie, Indian River and O keechobee counties benefitted from the fundraiser. The event was also a chance for the group to r aise public awareness about its work across the r egion, providing several services including day care for children from preschool to high school. The nonprofit focuses on health and recreation, providing summer camps, swimming lessons and sports programs that include basketball, soccer, archery, flag football, cheerleading, gymnastics and hockey. It needs to raise about $200,000 each year to cover the cost of its programs. No w in its fourth year, organizers said this "jingle bell run" was the most successful, attracting people of all ages and levels of athleticism. Among those participating was YMCA member M ike Manning. "I 'm not a runner, but I r un this event every year because it feels good to support my local Y and what they do for our local families in need," Mr. Manning said.

However, what you should positively insist on is getting the highest appraisal. In fact, you should hope that the guy who gave you the highest appraisal was very inaccurate and made a huge mistake that will cost his dealership a large wholesale loss at the auction. You accomplish this by never accepting only the appraisal by the car dealer from whom you're buying your next car. Before y ou allow him to appraise y our car, you should get at least two other bids from dealers of the make of car y ou are buying. F or example, a Ford dealer will usually appraise a Ford for more than a H onda dealer because more people wanting to buy a used Ford will shop the larger selection at a Fo rd dealer. D eal directly with the used car department at these other dealerships. Tell the used car manager that y ou need to sell your car for cash and that you're getting two more bids from two other dealers. If you have the time to get more than two more bids it's even better. Another good place to get a bid on your used car is from CarMax, the largest r etailer of used cars in the world. They buy lots of cars directly from owners even when they don't buy a car from CarMax. Their prices are sometimes higher than dealers will offer you. After you determine the highest bidder, if it's not the dealer from whom you're buying, give him the right of last refusal. If he can match the price from his competitor, you save the sales tax on the price of y our trade.

Lucie man is looking to revive an art form he describes as the "hippy play," and he wants the help of local artists to do it. D ante John Nazzaro, a playwright who founded the Organic Theatre Company in Jensen Beach in 1997, is looking to stage a r evival of the type of plays popular in the 1960s. He 's issued an open call for actors, writers, musicians and other artists to start working on productions they'll stage at Rooster's Daytime CafŽ in Jensen B each, beginning as early as January. The '60s was an era of peace and love, the era of G odspell,' Hairspray' and J esus Christ Superstar,'" he said. "These plays would be an extension of that." He 's looking for about 10 actors to cast two plays. The first production, called "The Marriage of the U niverse," has been staged in Jensen Beach and New Je rsey. It tells the story of a mystical union ceremony that unites the world. The other play, called The Dictionary," is the work of Port St. Lucie writer Janet Smith. It's the story of a woman who sits on a park bench and speaks only the truth to everyone she encounters. The concept of an organic theater centers on the idea of artists working together and allowing their work to naturally evolve. A bout 10 actors, musicians, singers and writers have responded to the call so far. TJ Kronowit, co-owner of Roosters Daytime CafŽ, said she welcomes the idea and the local effort to r evive a genre. "D ante is a free spirit, free thinker. He has had his organic theater in the community for several y ears before, and I think the acommunity could use something like that again," she said. "There's a resurgence of poets, writers and musicians coming to the area, and there's a really good atmosphere and energy when they all get together." R oosters, located at 891 N.E. Jensen Beach Blvd., closes after lunch. The theater troupe will resume meeting at the cafŽ on M onday and Tuesday evenings in January. Members will also use the space there, which allows sitting r oom for about 50, to stage productions. F or more information, call (302) 569-0860. HOBE SOUND On J an. 19, The Pine School will host the sixth annual 100 Years of Cars show from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on its U pper School campus in H obe Sound. R ocky and Henry Grady, co-chairs of the event, and their committee have been working since the summer to organize the show. The Grady's, who have been involved with 100 Y ears of Cars since its 2008 founding, are motivated by more than just their love of automobiles. They are committed to the cause behind the show, The Pine School's patriot scholarship fund, which provides tuition assistance to children of retired and active military personnel. This year, the Grady's are determined to raise a r ecord total of funds. Over the past six years, 100 Years of Cars has helped underwrite scholarships for seven deserving students at The Pine School, including Cole P osey, currently a sophomore. H is mother, Heather P osey, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force Reserve and 1989 graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, said the patriot scholarship has made a major difference in her son's life. The patriot scholarship has afforded our son an opportunity to excel in high school, as well as future life and learning. The Pine School experience has nurtured Cole's confidence and character through various leadership r oles throughout the school community," Ms. P osey said. "W e are extremely grateful to have our son at what we consider to be the best college preparatory school in South Florida." Pr izes will be awarded for best in class and in four other categories: best in show, The Pine School award for most popular car, the manufacturer's trophy and the veterans award. The show is a family friendly event featuring live music and activities for children. Pizza and beverages will be on sale in the school's dining hall during the show and multiple vendors will serve their own dishes. Concession stands will also be open throughout the event site.

Whatever your religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season. I love this time of year. It's a time for families and friends to be together a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women are making for us. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how you feel about them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. As tough as times are these days, there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. We still have our family, our friends and ourselves. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. Think of something or someone that makes you happy and hold that close. At this time of year we all tend to be more human, more kind and more caring. My wish is that we would just keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I give you the "Twelve Days of Christmas," golf style. On the first day of Christmas, Golf Santa gave to me, a one on an island par three. On the second day of Christmas, Golf Santa gave to me, two new wedges and a one on an island par three.
