B ut realizing that those differences are acceptable can sometimes be hard to explain. S tuart resident Jennifer A dkins realized this, and wrote a children's book to address the issue. C alled "Mom, am I different?" the book chronicles the journey of a mother and daughter as together, they explore how feeling different can empower someone to do great things. The story is a conversation the mother and daughter has, and shows us we can make positive changes in the world if we choose to use those differences rather than try to fit in," said Ms. Adkins. S he has seen firsthand how being different affects children, as she is a first-grade teacher at Marsh Pointe Elementary School in Palm B each Gardens as well as the mother of two elementaryaged children. "U ndoubtedly, there are pieces of my daughters scattered throughout the book," she said. "The young girl in the story reminds me a lot of my youngest daughter, whose inquisitive nature is constantly prompting her to ask questions about our world and the things in it." S he found when she was r eading books to her own children that many books do not directly address the feelings of being different. "W ords such as unique' or special' are frequently tossed around and do little to legitimize the very real, and sometimes heartbreaking, feelings that children experience when they feel they don't fit in," Ms. Adkins said. The idea for the story came to her one day a little bit at a time. The first two lines kept r unning through my head, so I went and wrote them down," she said. "By the day's end, I had a rough draft." After that day, it took about seven months for the book to wind its way to being printed. Ms. Adkins did a lot of r esearch, and selected GeorPhoto courtesy of Jennifer AdkinsJennifer Adkins holds a copy of the children's book she recently wrote.

St. Johns C ounty ranked first. Last y ear, the county had r anked fifth place overall. As we track our progress, we are reminded that there is no finish line in our efforts for better health across all the counties," said Dr. John Armstrong, surgeon general and secretary of health for the state. The report looked at outcomes that occurred ov er the year, such as premature death, low birthw eight and what percentages of people are currently in poor mental or physical health. The report even included health factors such as number of smokers, adult obesity and physical inactivity. "W e are delighted with these results," said Sarah H eard, Martin County District 4 Commissioner. "We r ecognize that there are many factors that influence health in a community and we remain committed together with the health department and other partners to support initiatives that help our r esidents live healthier lifestyles." The data was compiled by th e University of Wisconsin and the Robert W ood Johnson Foundation. The Florida Department of Health uses the data to create an improvement plan used by the county's health departments as well as other state agencies and businesses. "W e will continue to work with our community partners, as well as develop new partnerships to encourage healthy lifestyles and ensure residents have access to health care," said Karlette P eck, health officer for the Local citrus to be used for food programs TREASURE COAST Du r ing the week of March 19, the United States D epartment of Agriculture approved the purchase of up to $4.3 million of Florida grapefruit juice from the I ndian River Citrus League for the country's Child N utrition and Domestic F ood Assistance programs. The Indian River Citrus League stretches 200 miles from Daytona Beach to W est Palm Beach, and is made up of packinghouses, citrus dealers and processing plants. The announcement came after a letter was sent by C ongressman Patrick Murp hy (FL-18) and Representative Tom Rooney (FL17) to the USDA showing their support to the Citrus League's request to be part of the national program. The Florida citrus industry represents an important part of the state's economy," the letter read, in part. "A robust citrus industry is critical to the state of Florida." This comes at a time when the Florida grapefruit season is looking to be one of the smallest yields the industry has seen in some time. The February estimate r eleased on March 8 by the USDA lowered the grapefruit production to 17 million boxes for the season. The droppage was the highest so far in a season not affected by a significant w eather event, and the fruit this season has been the smallest since keeping Sevin Bullwinkle/ staff photographerGroovy seventies 3rd place winner Laura Winegaren, 17, of Jensen Beach, with her outfit Friday Night Fever, free style first place winner Regan Strout, 13, of Jensen Beach with her dress Fairy Godmothers go Green, and free style second place winner Lucie Dobson, 18, of Stuart with her dress New Season Last Year's Rubbish.

No w, 25 years later, the organization has grown to become a dedicated source of funding for thousands of children and their families in Martin C ounty. "I t' s thanks to the people of Martin County that we 'v e been so successful," said David Heaton, executive director of the council. "It's been their commitment and contribution that have made the Children's Services Council of Ma r tin County what it is today." C urrently, it supports 34 programs in the community, including educating pregnant women and mothers on the importance of prenatal care, offering after-school and summer programs for students and programs to help students make healthy choices in regard to drugs, alcohol and gangs.

F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com Celebrating people that make the community special Hello, everyone. I can't help but notice the large number of people that step up to volunteer and make a difference in this community. Their actions and efforts are certainly appreciated. B ut for all of those that help, I'm sure there are an equal number of people who work every day at their jobs to make this community better. I wanted to focus a little bit on those people this w eek, because they deserve just as much recognition. This week, I want to congratulate Jean Ballou. Ms. Ballou works for Galaxy A viation in Stuart. For the first time, a survey asked which employees go above and beyond when it comes to customer service. More than 500 responses were r eceived, and Ms. Ballou's name was mentioned r epeatedly. I also want to thank Ro z eta Mahboubi, the executive director of the Ma r tin County Convention and Visitors Bureau, for bringing Ms. Ballou's name to my attention. It 's everyday employees that make living in Martin C ounty such an enjoyable experience. Another group that does so much here is the United W ay of Martin County, and now that the fundraising cycle is coming to an end in J une, the organization is looking for one more push to help meet the needs of the community. To help with this, they created a tongue-in-cheek video, that can be found at www.youtube.com. Volunteers have re-enacted a number of scenes from the movie Rocky, using Martin C ounty setting and residents. Just type in "Martin C ounty Inner Rocky" into the You Tube search engine, and it should be the first video in the list. Enjoy the video, and I hope you discover your "inner Rocky" and put just a little energy towards making this community better for all. I know I will.

gia Stylou from Greece to do the illustrations. "I knew how I wanted the story to play out, so I looked for someone who could bring the visions in my head to life," she said. "I looked at about 125 portfolios before choosing Ms. Stylou." No w that the book is in print, the response has been rewarding for Ms. A dkins. "S o many people, r egardless of age, have been able to relate to the feelings of the little girl in the story," she said. "What has surprised me the most is how many adults told me they often felt like they didn't fit in or were a little different than other people." While she doesn't curr ently have any plans to write another book, she enjoys the experience she had creating this one. This is a universal message that everyone can r elate to," Ms. Adkins said. "I feel that if I was given one chance to leave my children with a message to live by, it would be to embrace their differences and use them to leave their mark on the world."

One of the things I often hear when I ask a new user what they want to learn about their computer is, "I want to learn how to download." Of all the things people can do with their machines, downloading seems to be a concept that's shrouded in mystery. We hear about it all the time, "just go to our site and download y our copy today" or "I just downloaded an update to my anti-virus software. My machine should be wellprotected now." What exactly do they mean by downloading? How come no one ever explains it? Well, it's one of those concepts that, for the most part, is 90 percent automatic. Let me explain. Whenever y ou visit a website, any picture, sound, or text displayed is stored on the computer that hosts it. When y ou access the website, all of that stuff is transferred from their computer down to y ours, so it can be displayed. S ince this transfer is going from the website down to y our computer, the data is said to be downloading. So basically, every time you access a website, you are automatically downloading lots of stuff. The direction the data flows is what makes the difference between downloading and uploading. D ata that comes down from the internet to your machine is considered downloaded, while data that leaves your computer and goes up to the internet is considered uploaded. When you send your mail, the data goes from your computer up to the mail server, so it's uploaded. When you get your mail, it comes down from the mail server, so it's downloaded. No w, when typical stuff is downloaded from a website, it's usually displayed as it is being downloaded. Back in the days of dialup, the pictures would seem to slowly form before your eyes. The confusion about downloading comes from those times when the file you are trying to access is something other than a file that can be displayed as it comes in. In these cases, you have to save the file to disk and then access the file manually. This isn't as complicated as it may first seem. When you encounter a file like that, typically a "save as" dialogue box opens and the computer wants to know where on your computer you want to save the file. This is logical; the machine needs a place to store it as it comes in. Some browsers will be set up to automatically save things to y our "Downloads" folder while other browsers may have to save things manually. Sa ve it to the desktop or create a folder specifically for it on the hard drive but, r egardless of where you save it, you need to note what folder it is being saved in and what the file is named. That way, after the download is complete, you can use navigate to that folder and double-click the newly downloaded file. The next thing that tends to cause confusion is what happens when you download something that your machine doesn't know how to open for instance, say y ou just downloaded a .pdf file, but you have no .pdf r eader installed on your computer. Then, when you go to open it, the computer displays a message asking y ou what program to use. This can be very intimidating if you don't understand the message, but you know what? The download worked fine! The file did indeed transfer from the internet down to the computer, the computer just doesn't know what to do with it and is r elying on you to tell it what program to use. N ot sure what program to use yourself? Here's a hint take the 3 letter extension in this example .pdf and ask Google "what program opens .pdf." Google will then come up with a list of what programs will open your file. Another area of confusion comes from things that automatically downloaded. Things like antivirus or W indows updates are often downloaded in the background so there is usually little, if anything that you have to do. But, since everyone knows how important updates are, people can get stuck trying to figure out how to download things that are already taken care of. The trick there is learning how to verify that automatic downloads worked the way they are supposed to have.

Laura is the owner. Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Stay out of my walletW ell, once again my ugly head re-emerges. Why? Just to r emind those who use the welfare system as their livelihood that you're only kidding yourselves and the way you vote. D id you know that the politicians that you vote for most likely make well over a 100,000 a year and get great benefits; meanwhile, they're just spoon-feeding you a measly allowance which taxpayers like myself are the ones paying. My personal thought is: get out of my wallet. It 's not my fault or anyone else's, but your own, for limiting yourselves to your own capabilities. For instance, did y ou know that "Obamacare" was ruled a tax, and people here in Florida no longer are able to work 40 hours a week. No w, w ell, maybe I as a taxpayer can ask you, the wonderful welfare recipient, to pay me the balance of what I would be getting for my extra effort at work. I'm entitled to that. So a big thanks to those who are just looking for your free government subsidies and not looking at the big picture. Let's see now, if you weren't on the government payroll you would be driving a nicer vehicle than I could get. You wouldn't be doing a whole lot, would you, so welfare basically limits your real potential. No wonder Fort Pierce suffers such a high poverty rate. J ust a little something to think about.Regarding Mr. StewartThank goodness for Earl Stewart. We uninformed need more informed people like him to keep us informed of the truth, which seems to be in short supply. There seems to be no end to the ways big business and government will abuse and misuse the struggling taxpayer and consumer. Thanks, Earl.A look at teachingWhen we consider public school teachers' compensation, it is reasonable to look at pupil achievement. The picture is not pretty. The National Assessment of Educational Progress r eports that only 10 percent of high school students scored "p r oficient" in history. N ot proof of excellent teaching.More on teachersLet's see if we understand public school teachers. They claim that they love children. Then they claim that they love teaching children. And then they bitterly complain about their generous salaries, short work days, extended v acations and taxpayer-paid benefits. Go figure. Repeat offendersIt is the same old story. We've heard it too often. It is pathetic that those who could strengthen our legal system are failing to take action. A repeat criminal was placed on probation in February after serving less that half of his six-year term for grand larceny and assault on a police officer. Now he is identified as the cold-blooded murderer of one of his neighbors. Innocent people suffer when the do-gooders are soft on the bad guys. Another sad example of recidivism. Stop stealing from yardsI live in Vero Lake Estates and some low-life, mother, daughter, husband, son or neighbor came into my yard and took my three ceramic mushrooms some time ago that I had for a few years. No w some other low-life person came in my yard and took my three plastic flamingos that I have had in my yard for 20 years. They did leave one flamingo and two of the legs from the others. I cannot understand this and please be sure when your wife, daughter, father or son or neighbor comes home and says look what I bought at a yard sale, they are lying. If y ou have any feelings at all you, will return them with no questions asked. I will only beat you to within an inch of y our miserable life, thank you. Humane Society comes throughN ot too long ago, my beloved Labrador retriever died. S he was my best friend for 12 years. I am a senior citizen, don't drive and am on a fixed income. I was very worried that I wouldn't be able to afford to take care of her once she passed away. I called the Humane Society and they assured me that they would take care of both of us once she died. The morning that she passed away, I called them and lo and behold, they came and took her. They cremated her and never charged me a penny. They knew how distraught I was, and they came the day after she died and gave me a great poem explaining how hard it was to lose a pet. A few weeks after that, they came and took me to the pound and let me pick out another dog free of charge. I know this might not be something they can offer to everybody, but they really made such a difference to me. I'm no longer sitting here lonely, missing my dog. I have a great new dog that keeps my busy and shows me so much love. I just want to say thank you so much to the Humane S ociety. You've made such a difference in this senior's life.Neighbors should be more considerateM aybe someone can tell me what happened to the loud noise law we supposedly have. I can't sleep or watch a TV program these days, because my neighbor is playing the music so loud that the walls and floors shake and things fall down. Then when I call 911 to have the police come to quiet them down, they don't show up at all. The police are so lazy. It took me calling three times before they finally showed up. I just got home from work; it's 1 a.m. There was nowhere to park because of the party going on downstairs. It didn't stop until 2:30 a.m. They are bad neighbors.An end to snail mail?Ex cept for very little, the federal government delivers little service and expects to be rewarded. The Post Office comes to mind. In the 60s, I could get a letter from Louisiana to rural P ennsylvania in two days for 4 cents. T oday it is considerably more, with it taking four to 11 days. The postal service no longer needs to sort by hand, but planes (I've been told) are not always available. The postal service has noticed a huge reduction in volume. It is no mystery. In any business it is customer service and value for money spent. The USPS is no longer competitive. The pony express was replaced when the telegraph came about. P ossibly, the postal service has seen its time.Some bike advice I've been driving for 40 years and riding a bike for 50. I have safely operated taxis, dump trucks, garbage trucks, moving vans and even some heavy equipment on the r oads of this country (all over the place, in all kinds of conditions, from coast to coast, mountains and deserts). If I, for any reason, had ever felt the least bit confused, I would have pulled over until my head totally cleared. Y ou, obviously, are exactly the person my rant was directed toward. Yes, you are confused and conveniently omitted the fact that the statutes on bikes have several sections and should be read in their entirety to be fully understood. Anyway, law aside, if you are confused by a bike, dog, kid on a tricycle, skateboarder, wheelchair or pretty much anything at all, then maybe you should do us all a favor and park it, baby. The rest of us should be allowed to feel safe and the thought of confused people driving doesn't do it for me. I'm just guessing, but I don't think it does it for anyone. Thought on teachersWe love the observation, "highest paid teachers don't make the best teachers, just teachers we pay more." So true. Got something to say?

My regular readers know that I highly r ecommend Co nsumer Reports Organization as the number one source of information on buying, leasing, or servicing your car. What makes it superior to all others is their objectivity derived from being a not-for-profit corporation. They accept no advertising and all of their revenue derives from subscriptions and donations. When Motor Trend or C ar and Driver announce their "Car of the Year" award, the manufacturer inevitably has spent large sums of money advertising their cars in that magazine. The corporation will not even allow a manufacturer to give them a car to test; they buy the car from the manufacturer at retail! Fu r thermore, if it gives a particular car a high r ating, they will not even allow the manufacturer to use their name or good r eport in any advertising. There is absolutely no conflict of interest when y ou read the organization's opinion on a car. Y ou should always consult them when choosing which make and model to buy and when determining what a fair price is. The May issue of the corporation's magazine has ten great tips that can help you make decisions about your present car and in buying your next car. If yo u' re a regular r eader, you may have already heard me mention most of these tips so I have added my take and enhanced advice: Try before you buy. Ne ver buy a car without trying it out for a reasonable period of time. More than 25 percent of people who buy cars never even take a demonstration drive in the car they buy. Y ou should either rent a car of the same make and model for a few days or ask the dealer to loan you a car so that you can drive it in all conditions. Don't lose radio presets when changing y our battery. Just plug in a jump-start battery into y our cigarette lighter during the battery-change process. This protects other electronic modules from losing data too. Car dealers' direct mail sales are almost always bogus. These sales are contracted with outside companies that often supply trained hucksters to sell you a car. The premise of the sale is usually a lie. Also, direct mail advertising flies under the radar of the r egulators. They are far more likely to see TV, r adio, and newspaper ads but the direct mail is directed specifically individuals car dealers choose. Don't bother using nitrogen in your tires. It's hard to believe that car dealers are still tricking customers into paying money to put nitrogen in their tires. Consumer R eports tested the effectiveness of nitrogen on tire gas mileage and tire longevity and found it to be worthless. Don't be timid about filing a complaint on your car dealer. Too many people are either too embarrassed or too shy to notify the manufacturer, county office of consumer affairs, Better Business Bu r eau, the Department of Motor Vehicles or the state Attorney General after they've been ripped off by a car dealer. When y ou remain silent you allow and encourage that dealer to continue doing the same thing he did to y ou to others. Leather seats are a good investment. There are lots of worthless accessories and options y ou should avoid like nitrogen and paint sealant. Not only does leather look, feel, and smell luxurious in your car it actually enhances the resale value. Another bonus is that it's actually easier to clean than cloth interiors. Try to always opt for factory leather. If you buy the dealer installed leather, look carefully at exactly what you're buying and see how it differs from the factory installed. Be wary of being among the first to buy that new model. It's always safer to wait a year before buying a brand new model with a major redesign. The manufacturers often rush a new model to market without getting out all of the bugs. Synthetic oil is now r ecommended by most manufacturers. This is one of the recommendations that I don't endorse 100 percent. When synthetic oil first came out it was about twice the cost of r egular oil. But the price is coming down as the sales volume grows. Also, the r ecommended interval to change oil with synthetic is twice as long. It is also consistent with today's very tight tolerance engine designs and it does improve your gas mileage slightly. Also, if you choose, you may still use r egular oil instead of synthetic, but you must change your oil twice as often. Consider leasing, not buying, that electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid. B attery technology is improving so quickly that y ou could end up with a hybrid or plug-in with an obsolete battery. Your r esale value would plummet. T esla just announced a leasing program for their electric vehicle out of desperation because buyers are afraid they will end up with an obsolete car. If you want to buy a Te sla (which I don't r ecommend), by all means lease, don't buy. Pass up factory builtin navigation. These factory navigation systems are way overpriced by $1,500 to $2,500, and many of them aren't as accurate or don't have as many features as the Ga r min you can buy at C ostco for $250. You can mount a Garmin or Tom T om GPS on your dash and have everything the factory navigation does and more. Smart phones today also have great navigation capability.

Well, we started out with warm weather, and then it went to cloudy, rain and cool. Enough, this is south F lorida. That north wind will keep the Blues busy for the surf anglers, while keeping the cool water in the neighborhood. April is the time for the bigger Blues with some nine to 12 pounds and some bigger. Why? I wish I knew. M aybe they are just older like me and in no hurry. These fish have been in all day with the best time being early, but it's not limited to that. Cut baits have been preferred, but a big top water popper will find the fish. Cut baits work because of the scent and the popper works because of the noise. Ye s, there are still plenty of the chopper Blues for the early angler. Use cut bait because the water is cloudy and a spoon will hard to see, and cut bait with its scent works. No w, if you like to sleep in, the Whiting and Pompano will be there when you get there. Once that sun warms that edge, they will move in. These fish are just a pitch into the surf and not a cast. There are plenty of Whiting and a few Pompano in the mix, so do not forget the ice. W ith Snook, we will need a lot of south wind with its warm water, and then they will be here. S tay away from the beach construction as it's causing cloudy water, and you want the blue water. One surprise has been the ri ver. It's been busy with fish. They're simple to find, just fish the flat water, because that is where the fish are. W ith the wind changing direction several times a day, look to the flat clear water. Tr out and Reds top the list when using bait that you can move across the bottom, and a small buck tail or the suspending Mi ro Lu re will get the job done. Mo ving across the fuzzy water, you will find plenty of B lues, Lady Fish and Macs. J ust pick the time and the fish are there. We had a few warmer days moving the river temps up, then it became cool again, so who knows where the Snook went. Look to the deeper water as these fish are in their comfort zone, but slowmoving bait just might wake them up. The unusual week of changing wind directions, wave heaths ups and downs, and varying temperatures made it hard to plan. B ut it was a pretty good w eek depending on the day, with Dolphin to 20 pounds, K ings and Wahoo in the fifteen pound class, and a mix of Cobia, depending on the day. Dolphin and Sails were in the 130 to 150 feet, and the others were in 60 to 80 feet, all north of the inlet. Bait was not an issue, and I didn't hear of any anglers looking for live baits, so there must have been plenty. Tr olled ballyhoo was preferred, but live bait sure took its toll. M utton were south to the Loran Tower in numbers, so it was worth the ride, and came with a King or a Cobia to keep you on your toes. Looking back, I guess we had a pretty good week of fishing, now it just has to warm up. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

250 people participated in the Pine School's Knight Run in Color 5k, held at their Hobe Sound Campus on Friday, April 5. See more photos, B3. Sevin Bullwinkle/ staff photographerKirsten Norman and Sean Carlson of Palm Beach Gardens splash pro golfer Greg Norman as he passes the third station. ST. LUCIE COUNTY Se r geant Gary Morales touched many lives in St. Lucie County. Whether remembered for being the approachable, down-to-earth deputy many residents knew him as, or the family-man adored by those closest to him, he seemed to have a profound effect on the community. In the wake of his senseless death, members of the community have rallied to help those who we re left behind. One of those who have felt the call to action is K evin Vanover, owner of Above Av erage Entertainment. He, with the help of Stevie Sticks, owner of C aptain Jax Bar and Grill, has put together a benefit event to be held Ap r il 12. "I lost my younger brother about four years ago, so the sense of loss is very real to me," Mr. V anover said. "I just want the family to know we haven't forgotten about them. We, as a community, want to take care of them as much as possible." This isn't Mr. Vanover's first experience with putting together a benefit in the wake of tragedy. After the school shootings at S andy Hook, he opened a Facebook page for the victims that soon jumped to nearly 400,000 followers. This gave him the idea to put together a benefit that r aised $5,000 for the families of the victims. When Mr. Vanover heard about S heriff Morales, he felt compelled to help. "I immediately spoke with Stevie about doing something for Ga ry 's family. We decided to wait a little while, because there have been so many benefits for the family. Each one helps and is very important, so we didn't want to interfere with any of the events. We spoke with his family members, and they agreed that this benefit would be a good idea," he said. "W e want to help not only his family, but Fort Pierce in general. The downtown area is starting to come back to life, and it seems there's a new beginning to it. We want to not only remember and celebrate Mr. Morales; we want to celebrate the life that is being brought back to downtown Fort Pierce." The event will begin at 11 a.m. at Captain Jax, and will include lots of live music and entertainment. Al Papachubby will start the show at noon. Local favorites, The Humdingers, will take the stage at 1:30 p.m., followed by The B ig Coque Band, Blue Cypress B luegrass, Jackie Steil, The Cheyenne Band, Smokefog and r ounding out the evening, Metalucious beginning at 9 p.m. The benefit will also include r affles for items such as a flat screen TV, gift certificates and a pair of Western Wear boots. The silent auction will also have many spectacular items to bid on. A kid's play area, provided by Chuck-N-Lori's Entertainment, will keep little ones busy while adults find many ways to help the Mo r ales family. There is a $5 charge at the door and a portion of each drink and food item purchased will be donated to the cause. C aptain Jax Bar and Grill is located at 658 N. Second St. in Fo rt Pierce.

Grammy-winning jazz singer comes to Lyric STUART Jazz music has a large following on the Tr easure Coast, and the upcoming performance by Esperanza Spalding will be one that can't be missed. The Portland native r eceived national recognition back in 2009 when she was the only performer at Pr esident Obama's Nobel P eace Prize ceremony. F ans of her earthy vocals celebrated again in 2011, when she won the Grammy A ward for Best New Artist. Ms. Spalding has always been involved in music, starting as a four-year-old child when she first saw Yo Yo Ma 's performance on an episode of Mr. Rogers' N eighborhood.

If you own a home, you already know how hard and expensive it is to get rid of pesky weeds. S tore-brought weed killers are extremely expensive and if you read the label, you will find that they are very toxic to both y ou and the environment. Although there will be times when a commercial product is the only solution, you might want to try a few ideas we have that have less damaging to the earth. He re is a method that works, but requires multiple applications. The best part is that almost all of us already have it hanging around and it is extremely inexpensive. V inegar makes a great natural weed killer. The acidic nature of vinegar is what does the trick in killing off the plants. This method will work best on smaller weeds and it is best to apply in direct sunlight. It is also best to apply vinegar when there is no mention of rain in the forecast, as the substance has to remain on the weeds for some time in order to be effective. He re is another common household item that can kill weeds. Salt is something we all have hanging around the house and just a small dab will do the trick. If you have ever o wned a water softener, y ou know that the areas where the softener discharges when it regenerates will often leave a barren area where nothing will grow. This is the result of salt getting into the soil. S ince salt remains in the soil for sometime, this method is best used in areas where you do not intend to plant. A pplying salt between pavers, in gravel areas and in cracks between driveway slabs can help control w eeds for an extended period of time. It is not advisable to use this method around gardens or landscape shrubs as the salt may damage them. One of the most primitive ways to get rid of both w eeds and even fire ants is to use boiling water. Yes, this method actually works and it is the least expensive of all ways to utilize. Please take care as not to burn y ourself when trying this idea. Remember, there is ze ro toxicity to the envir onment when doing this. By far, one of the most common ways of keeping w eeds at bay is by the use of ground covers. One ecofriendly way of doing this is by using old newspapers. The next time you are planting in your garden, apply a layer of newspapers just under the soil layer. The newspapers act as a barrier to weeds but it is biodegradable and allows moisture to pass through. Y ou can also use garden mulch, but remember that to be eco-friendly, try to use natural ground covers such as pine needles or even ground-up leaves. If y ou do use a commercial mulching product, try to avoid the use of cypress so we can preserve this natural resource. R emember, Earth Day is coming soon and we all need to help preserve one of our most prized assets, M other Earth. I encourage y ou to try natural remedies first and to use these natural methods whenever possible. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

Sports have a way of marking our calendar. F or baseball fans, spring training marks the end of winter. Football usually ushers in the fall. F or me, nothing rings in the beginning of spring quite like the Masters. The Masters is my favorite golf tournament. As a child, my father would let me take a day off from school and, along with my mother, we'd drive from our home in Wa r ner Robins, Georgia to A ugusta. It became a ritual every T uesday of Masters' week. F or a mere $5 apiece, we'd don our best walking shoes, and onto the hallowed grounds of Augusta National we would trek. I learned a lot of life's lessons those years. I was eight when I attended my first Masters practice round. The place had an aura about it even to a young boy. The flowers, the perfectly groomed fairways and greens all combined in jawdropping beauty. I remember how green everything was with just enough coloring from the azaleas splashed in to break it up. At The Masters I met a professional golfer for the first time. His name was Chi Chi Rodriguez, and to this day I can remember the time he took to talk to my parents and me. He was playing by himself and we caught up with him at the end of Amen Corner as he walked from the 13th green. Chi Chi stopped and talked with us as though we were old friends. It was at Augusta that I learned how genuinely nice people can be and how unbelievably rude as well. Ga ry P layer wouldn't even acknowledge me with a smile. As he walked from the sixth green to the seventh tee I said hello and asked him if he'd mind signing my autograph book. H is reply was that he wasn't there to sign autographs and talk to people. He was there to get ready to play The Masters. After being turned down by Mr. Player, a voice behind me asked if he could have the honor of signing my book. I turned to see the smiling face of Sam Snead. What a way to make a fan for life. When I met Sam again just a few months before he passed, I told him about that day and introduced him to my son. He had the same warm twinkle in his eye as he shook my y oung son's hand. Over the years, I met just about every player who teed it up at The Masters. I felt incredible joy along with J ack Nicklaus when he won for the sixth time in 1986. I felt pain and sadness for Greg Norman when he faltered that famous S unday. I too jumped with elation as Phil Mickelson's putt curled in and he won his first major. I also cried along with Bubba Watson last year as he broke down when he won. We've all felt the same emotions in life. The way I remember seeing those golfers handle adversity and triumph showed me how life should be taken. The reasons we love The M asters are too numerous to count. For many, seeing the same course and watching today's great players conquer the same hole that Sarazen doubleeagled to win in 1935 has a familiar warmth to it. It's like seeing an old, dear friend once a year. It's the only time we get to see him and we look forward to it, knowing it means the best of our year is about to begin. So me of us simply love to see the tradition that goes with The Masters. It's the only tournament that gives a spot in the field for every past champion. It is a fitting way to honor those who have triumphed where so many of us only dream of walking. One of the greatest traditions at The Masters is eating a pimento cheese sandwich. Since most of us won't be at Augusta National this weekend, we'll have to make our own. So to honor the tournament I love so much, one that taught me much about people and life and that brings back a flood of fond memories of time with my family, I give to you my own secret recipe for those famous pimento cheese sandwiches. M asters' Week Pimento Cheese Sandwich; one stick of extra sharp cheddar cheese (10-12 oz.), grated; 34 tbsp, mayonnaise; 4 oz. (or more if desired) diced pimentos, not well drained; black pepper to taste. Mix and serve on your choice of bread. And don't forget the green wax paper. Now where is that TV remote?

B ut realizing that those differences are acceptable can sometimes be hard to explain. S tuart resident Jennifer A dkins realized this, and wrote a childrens book to address the issue. C alled Mom, am I different? the book chronicles the journey of a mother and daughter as together, they explore how feeling different can empower someone to do great things. The story is a conversation the mother and daughter has, and shows us we can make positive changes in the world if we choose to use those differences rather than try to fit in, said Ms. Adkins. S he has seen firsthand how being different affects children, as she is a first-grade teacher at Marsh Pointe Elementary School in Palm B each Gardens as well as the mother of two elementaryaged children. U ndoubtedly, there are pieces of my daughters scattered throughout the book, she said. The young girl in the story reminds me a lot of my youngest daughter, whose inquisitive nature is constantly prompting her to ask questions about our world and the things in it. S he found when she was r eading books to her own children that many books do not directly address the feelings of being different. W ords such as unique or special are frequently tossed around and do little to legitimize the very real, and sometimes heartbreaking, feelings that children experience when they feel they dont fit in, Ms. Adkins said. The idea for the story came to her one day a little bit at a time. The first two lines kept r unning through my head, so I went and wrote them down, she said. By the days end, I had a rough draft. After that day, it took about seven months for the book to wind its way to being printed. Ms. Adkins did a lot of r esearch, and selected GeorPhoto courtesy of Jennifer AdkinsJennifer Adkins holds a copy of the childrens book she recently wrote.

St. Johns C ounty ranked first. Last y ear, the county had r anked fifth place overall. As we track our progress, we are reminded that there is no finish line in our efforts for better health across all the counties, said Dr. John Armstrong, surgeon general and secretary of health for the state. The report looked at outcomes that occurred ov er the year, such as premature death, low birthw eight and what percentages of people are currently in poor mental or physical health. The report even included health factors such as number of smokers, adult obesity and physical inactivity. W e are delighted with these results, said Sarah H eard, Martin County District 4 Commissioner. We r ecognize that there are many factors that influence health in a community and we remain committed together with the health department and other partners to support initiatives that help our r esidents live healthier lifestyles. The data was compiled by th e University of Wisconsin and the Robert W ood Johnson Foundation. The Florida Department of Health uses the data to create an improvement plan used by the countys health departments as well as other state agencies and businesses. W e will continue to work with our community partners, as well as develop new partnerships to encourage healthy lifestyles and ensure residents have access to health care, said Karlette P eck, health officer for the Local citrus to be used for food programs TREASURE COAST Dur ing the week of March 19, the United States D epartment of Agriculture approved the purchase of up to $4.3 million of Florida grapefruit juice from the I ndian River Citrus League for the countrys Child N utrition and Domestic F ood Assistance programs. The Indian River Citrus League stretches 200 miles from Daytona Beach to W est Palm Beach, and is made up of packinghouses, citrus dealers and processing plants. The announcement came after a letter was sent by C ongressman Patrick Murp hy (FL-18) and Representative Tom Rooney (FL17) to the USDA showing their support to the Citrus Leagues request to be part of the national program. The Florida citrus industry represents an important part of the states economy, the letter read, in part. A robust citrus industry is critical to the state of Florida. This comes at a time when the Florida grapefruit season is looking to be one of the smallest yields the industry has seen in some time. The February estimate r eleased on March 8 by the USDA lowered the grapefruit production to 17 million boxes for the season. The droppage was the highest so far in a season not affected by a significant w eather event, and the fruit this season has been the smallest since keeping Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerGroovy seventies 3rd place winner Laura Winegaren, 17, of Jensen Beach, with her outfit Friday Night Fever, free style first place winner Regan Strout, 13, of Jensen Beach with her dress Fairy Godmothers go Green, and free style second place winner Lucie Dobson, 18, of Stuart with her dress New Season Last Years Rubbish.

Childrens group celebrates milestone anniversary MARTIN COUNTY Ba ck in 1988, the Childrens Services Council of Mar tin County was created by voter referendum. Now, 25 years later, the organization has grown to become a dedicated source of funding for thousands of children and their families in Martin C ounty. I t s thanks to the people of Martin County that we v e been so successful, said David Heaton, executive director of the council. Its been their commitment and contribution that have made the Childrens Services Council of Mar tin County what it is today. C urrently, it supports 34 programs in the community, including educating pregnant women and mothers on the importance of prenatal care, offering after-school and summer programs for students and programs to help students make healthy choices in regard to drugs, alcohol and gangs. I n all of these, weve seen significant improvement, Mr. Heaton said. W e ve shown that making an early investment in our children is critical to their success. The funding for the organization comes from ad valorem taxes and state and federal grants. S ome of the agencies the group funds includes the American Red Cross, B ig Brothers Big Sisters of P alm Beach and Martin C ounties, the Boys & Girls Club of Martin County, CASTLE and the Early Learning Coalition, to name a few. The organization is also celebrating its year anniversary since they moved into their new building on Central Parkway in Stuart, and are there debt-free.

I cant help but notice the large number of people that step up to volunteer and make a difference in this community. Their actions and efforts are certainly appreciated. B ut for all of those that help, Im sure there are an equal number of people who work every day at their jobs to make this community better. I wanted to focus a little bit on those people this w eek, because they deserve just as much recognition. This week, I want to congratulate Jean Ballou. Ms. Ballou works for Galaxy A viation in Stuart. For the first time, a survey asked which employees go above and beyond when it comes to customer service. More than 500 responses were r eceived, and Ms. Ballous name was mentioned r epeatedly. I also want to thank Roz eta Mahboubi, the executive director of the Mar tin County Convention and Visitors Bureau, for bringing Ms. Ballous name to my attention. It s everyday employees that make living in Martin C ounty such an enjoyable experience. Another group that does so much here is the United W ay of Martin County, and now that the fundraising cycle is coming to an end in J une, the organization is looking for one more push to help meet the needs of the community. To help with this, they created a tongue-in-cheek video, that can be found at www.youtube.com. Volunteers have re-enacted a number of scenes from the movie Rocky, using Martin C ounty setting and residents. Just type in Martin C ounty Inner Rocky into the You Tube search engine, and it should be the first video in the list. Enjoy the video, and I hope you discover your inner Rocky and put just a little energy towards making this community better for all. I know I will.

gia Stylou from Greece to do the illustrations. I knew how I wanted the story to play out, so I looked for someone who could bring the visions in my head to life, she said. I looked at about 125 portfolios before choosing Ms. Stylou. Now that the book is in print, the response has been rewarding for Ms. A dkins. S o many people, r egardless of age, have been able to relate to the feelings of the little girl in the story, she said. What has surprised me the most is how many adults told me they often felt like they didnt fit in or were a little different than other people. While she doesnt curr ently have any plans to write another book, she enjoys the experience she had creating this one. This is a universal message that everyone can r elate to, Ms. Adkins said. I feel that if I was given one chance to leave my children with a message to live by, it would be to embrace their differences and use them to leave their mark on the world. Mo re information on the book can be found on the w eb site www.momamidifferent.com or on Amazon.BookF rom page A1 STUART In 1978, Florida Oceanographic Society had the foresight to hire Ma rk P erry as its very first staff member.

As we reflect on the importance of agriculture to our nation, I cannot emphasize the important r ole Florida citrus plays in the states economy, said Re p. M urphy. The grapefruit industry has been hard hit by invasive pests and diseases, and I applaud the approved purchase of grapefruit juice, which will not only promote healthy eating, but also support this important industry during this difficult season.

One of the things I often hear when I ask a new user what they want to learn about their computer is, "I want to learn how to download." Of all the things people can do with their machines, downloading seems to be a concept that's shrouded in mystery. We hear about it all the time, "just go to our site and download y our copy today" or "I just downloaded an update to my anti-virus software. My machine should be wellprotected now." What exactly do they mean by downloading? How come no one ever explains it? Well, it's one of those concepts that, for the most part, is 90 percent automatic. Let me explain. Whenever y ou visit a website, any picture, sound, or text displayed is stored on the computer that hosts it. When y ou access the website, all of that stuff is transferred from their computer down to y ours, so it can be displayed. S ince this transfer is going from the website down to y our computer, the data is said to be downloading. So basically, every time you access a website, you are automatically downloading lots of stuff. The direction the data flows is what makes the difference between downloading and uploading. D ata that comes down from the internet to your machine is considered downloaded, while data that leaves your computer and goes up to the internet is considered uploaded. When you send your mail, the data goes from your computer up to the mail server, so it's uploaded. When you get your mail, it comes down from the mail server, so it's downloaded. Now, when typical stuff is downloaded from a website, it's usually displayed as it is being downloaded. Back in the days of dialup, the pictures would seem to slowly form before your eyes. The confusion about downloading comes from those times when the file you are trying to access is something other than a file that can be displayed as it comes in. In these cases, you have to save the file to disk and then access the file manually. This isn't as complicated as it may first seem. When you encounter a file like that, typically a "save as" dialogue box opens and the computer wants to know where on your computer you want to save the file. This is logical; the machine needs a place to store it as it comes in. Some browsers will be set up to automatically save things to y our Downloads folder while other browsers may have to save things manually. Sa ve it to the desktop or create a folder specifically for it on the hard drive but, r egardless of where you save it, you need to note what folder it is being saved in and what the file is named. That way, after the download is complete, you can use navigate to that folder and double-click the newly downloaded file. The next thing that tends to cause confusion is what happens when you download something that your machine doesnt know how to open for instance, say y ou just downloaded a .pdf file, but you have no .pdf r eader installed on your computer. Then, when you go to open it, the computer displays a message asking y ou what program to use. This can be very intimidating if you dont understand the message, but you know what? The download worked fine! The file did indeed transfer from the internet down to the computer, the computer just doesnt know what to do with it and is r elying on you to tell it what program to use. N ot sure what program to use yourself? Heres a hint take the 3 letter extension in this example .pdf and ask Google what program opens .pdf. Google will then come up with a list of what programs will open your file. Another area of confusion comes from things that automatically downloaded. Things like antivirus or W indows updates are often downloaded in the background so there is usually little, if anything that you have to do. But, since everyone knows how important updates are, people can get stuck trying to figure out how to download things that are already taken care of. The trick there is learning how to verify that automatic downloads worked the way they are supposed to have.

Laura is the owner. Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Stay out of my walletW ell, once again my ugly head re-emerges. Why? Just to r emind those who use the welfare system as their livelihood that youre only kidding yourselves and the way you vote. D id you know that the politicians that you vote for most likely make well over a 100,000 a year and get great benefits; meanwhile, theyre just spoon-feeding you a measly allowance which taxpayers like myself are the ones paying. My personal thought is: get out of my wallet. It s not my fault or anyone elses, but your own, for limiting yourselves to your own capabilities. For instance, did y ou know that Obamacare was ruled a tax, and people here in Florida no longer are able to work 40 hours a week. Now, w ell, maybe I as a taxpayer can ask you, the wonderful welfare recipient, to pay me the balance of what I would be getting for my extra effort at work. Im entitled to that. So a big thanks to those who are just looking for your free government subsidies and not looking at the big picture. Lets see now, if you werent on the government payroll you would be driving a nicer vehicle than I could get. You wouldnt be doing a whole lot, would you, so welfare basically limits your real potential. No wonder Fort Pierce suffers such a high poverty rate. J ust a little something to think about.Regarding Mr. StewartThank goodness for Earl Stewart. We uninformed need more informed people like him to keep us informed of the truth, which seems to be in short supply. There seems to be no end to the ways big business and government will abuse and misuse the struggling taxpayer and consumer. Thanks, Earl.A look at teachingWhen we consider public school teachers compensation, it is reasonable to look at pupil achievement. The picture is not pretty. The National Assessment of Educational Progress r eports that only 10 percent of high school students scored pr oficient in history. N ot proof of excellent teaching.More on teachersLets see if we understand public school teachers. They claim that they love children. Then they claim that they love teaching children. And then they bitterly complain about their generous salaries, short work days, extended v acations and taxpayer-paid benefits. Go figure. Repeat offendersIt is the same old story. Weve heard it too often. It is pathetic that those who could strengthen our legal system are failing to take action. A repeat criminal was placed on probation in February after serving less that half of his six-year term for grand larceny and assault on a police officer. Now he is identified as the cold-blooded murderer of one of his neighbors. Innocent people suffer when the do-gooders are soft on the bad guys. Another sad example of recidivism. Stop stealing from yardsI live in Vero Lake Estates and some low-life, mother, daughter, husband, son or neighbor came into my yard and took my three ceramic mushrooms some time ago that I had for a few years. Now some other low-life person came in my yard and took my three plastic flamingos that I have had in my yard for 20 years. They did leave one flamingo and two of the legs from the others. I cannot understand this and please be sure when your wife, daughter, father or son or neighbor comes home and says look what I bought at a yard sale, they are lying. If you have any feelings at all you, will return them with no questions asked. I will only beat you to within an inch of y our miserable life, thank you. Humane Society comes throughN ot too long ago, my beloved Labrador retriever died. S he was my best friend for 12 years. I am a senior citizen, dont drive and am on a fixed income. I was very worried that I wouldnt be able to afford to take care of her once she passed away. I called the Humane Society and they assured me that they would take care of both of us once she died. The morning that she passed away, I called them and lo and behold, they came and took her. They cremated her and never charged me a penny. They knew how distraught I was, and they came the day after she died and gave me a great poem explaining how hard it was to lose a pet. A few weeks after that, they came and took me to the pound and let me pick out another dog free of charge. I know this might not be something they can offer to everybody, but they really made such a difference to me. Im no longer sitting here lonely, missing my dog. I have a great new dog that keeps my busy and shows me so much love. I just want to say thank you so much to the Humane S ociety. Youve made such a difference in this seniors life.Neighbors should be more considerateM aybe someone can tell me what happened to the loud noise law we supposedly have. I cant sleep or watch a TV program these days, because my neighbor is playing the music so loud that the walls and floors shake and things fall down. Then when I call 911 to have the police come to quiet them down, they dont show up at all. The police are so lazy. It took me calling three times before they finally showed up. I just got home from work; its 1 a.m. There was nowhere to park because of the party going on downstairs. It didnt stop until 2:30 a.m. They are bad neighbors.An end to snail mail?Ex cept for very little, the federal government delivers little service and expects to be rewarded. The Post Office comes to mind. In the 60s, I could get a letter from Louisiana to rural P ennsylvania in two days for 4 cents. T oday it is considerably more, with it taking four to 11 days. The postal service no longer needs to sort by hand, but planes (Ive been told) are not always available. The postal service has noticed a huge reduction in volume. It is no mystery. In any business it is customer service and value for money spent. The USPS is no longer competitive. The pony express was replaced when the telegraph came about. P ossibly, the postal service has seen its time.Some bike advice Ive been driving for 40 years and riding a bike for 50. I have safely operated taxis, dump trucks, garbage trucks, moving vans and even some heavy equipment on the r oads of this country (all over the place, in all kinds of conditions, from coast to coast, mountains and deserts). If I, for any reason, had ever felt the least bit confused, I would have pulled over until my head totally cleared. Y ou, obviously, are exactly the person my rant was directed toward. Yes, you are confused and conveniently omitted the fact that the statutes on bikes have several sections and should be read in their entirety to be fully understood. Anyway, law aside, if you are confused by a bike, dog, kid on a tricycle, skateboarder, wheelchair or pretty much anything at all, then maybe you should do us all a favor and park it, baby. The rest of us should be allowed to feel safe and the thought of confused people driving doesnt do it for me. Im just guessing, but I dont think it does it for anyone. Thought on teachersWe love the observation, highest paid teachers dont make the best teachers, just teachers we pay more. So true. Got something to say?

My regular readers know that I highly r ecommend Co nsumer Reports Organization as the number one source of information on buying, leasing, or servicing your car. What makes it superior to all others is their objectivity derived from being a not-for-profit corporation. They accept no advertising and all of their revenue derives from subscriptions and donations. When Motor Trend or C ar and Driver announce their Car of the Year award, the manufacturer inevitably has spent large sums of money advertising their cars in that magazine. The corporation will not even allow a manufacturer to give them a car to test; they buy the car from the manufacturer at retail! Fur thermore, if it gives a particular car a high r ating, they will not even allow the manufacturer to use their name or good r eport in any advertising. There is absolutely no conflict of interest when y ou read the organizations opinion on a car. Y ou should always consult them when choosing which make and model to buy and when determining what a fair price is. The May issue of the corporations magazine has ten great tips that can help you make decisions about your present car and in buying your next car. If yo u re a regular r eader, you may have already heard me mention most of these tips so I have added my take and enhanced advice: Try before you buy. Ne ver buy a car without trying it out for a reasonable period of time. More than 25 percent of people who buy cars never even take a demonstration drive in the car they buy. Y ou should either rent a car of the same make and model for a few days or ask the dealer to loan you a car so that you can drive it in all conditions. Dont lose radio presets when changing y our battery. Just plug in a jump-start battery into y our cigarette lighter during the battery-change process. This protects other electronic modules from losing data too. Car dealers direct mail sales are almost always bogus. These sales are contracted with outside companies that often supply trained hucksters to sell you a car. The premise of the sale is usually a lie. Also, direct mail advertising flies under the radar of the r egulators. They are far more likely to see TV, r adio, and newspaper ads but the direct mail is directed specifically individuals car dealers choose. Dont bother using nitrogen in your tires. Its hard to believe that car dealers are still tricking customers into paying money to put nitrogen in their tires. Consumer R eports tested the effectiveness of nitrogen on tire gas mileage and tire longevity and found it to be worthless. Dont be timid about filing a complaint on your car dealer. Too many people are either too embarrassed or too shy to notify the manufacturer, county office of consumer affairs, Better Business Bur eau, the Department of Motor Vehicles or the state Attorney General after theyve been ripped off by a car dealer. When y ou remain silent you allow and encourage that dealer to continue doing the same thing he did to y ou to others. Leather seats are a good investment. There are lots of worthless accessories and options y ou should avoid like nitrogen and paint sealant. Not only does leather look, feel, and smell luxurious in your car it actually enhances the resale value. Another bonus is that its actually easier to clean than cloth interiors. Try to always opt for factory leather. If you buy the dealer installed leather, look carefully at exactly what youre buying and see how it differs from the factory installed. Be wary of being among the first to buy that new model. Its always safer to wait a year before buying a brand new model with a major redesign. The manufacturers often rush a new model to market without getting out all of the bugs. Synthetic oil is now r ecommended by most manufacturers. This is one of the recommendations that I dont endorse 100 percent. When synthetic oil first came out it was about twice the cost of r egular oil. But the price is coming down as the sales volume grows. Also, the r ecommended interval to change oil with synthetic is twice as long. It is also consistent with todays very tight tolerance engine designs and it does improve your gas mileage slightly. Also, if you choose, you may still use r egular oil instead of synthetic, but you must change your oil twice as often. Consider leasing, not buying, that electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid. B attery technology is improving so quickly that y ou could end up with a hybrid or plug-in with an obsolete battery. Your r esale value would plummet. T esla just announced a leasing program for their electric vehicle out of desperation because buyers are afraid they will end up with an obsolete car. If you want to buy a Te sla (which I dont r ecommend), by all means lease, dont buy. Pass up factory builtin navigation. These factory navigation systems are way overpriced by $1,500 to $2,500, and many of them arent as accurate or dont have as many features as the Gar min you can buy at C ostco for $250. You can mount a Garmin or Tom T om GPS on your dash and have everything the factory navigation does and more. Smart phones today also have great navigation capability.

Well, we started out with warm weather, and then it went to cloudy, rain and cool. Enough, this is south F lorida. That north wind will keep the Blues busy for the surf anglers, while keeping the cool water in the neighborhood. April is the time for the bigger Blues with some nine to 12 pounds and some bigger. Why? I wish I knew. M aybe they are just older like me and in no hurry. These fish have been in all day with the best time being early, but its not limited to that. Cut baits have been preferred, but a big top water popper will find the fish. Cut baits work because of the scent and the popper works because of the noise. Ye s, there are still plenty of the chopper Blues for the early angler. Use cut bait because the water is cloudy and a spoon will hard to see, and cut bait with its scent works. Now, if you like to sleep in, the Whiting and Pompano will be there when you get there. Once that sun warms that edge, they will move in. These fish are just a pitch into the surf and not a cast. There are plenty of Whiting and a few Pompano in the mix, so do not forget the ice. W ith Snook, we will need a lot of south wind with its warm water, and then they will be here. S tay away from the beach construction as its causing cloudy water, and you want the blue water. One surprise has been the ri ver. Its been busy with fish. Theyre simple to find, just fish the flat water, because that is where the fish are. W ith the wind changing direction several times a day, look to the flat clear water. Tr out and Reds top the list when using bait that you can move across the bottom, and a small buck tail or the suspending Mi ro Lu re will get the job done. Moving across the fuzzy water, you will find plenty of B lues, Lady Fish and Macs. J ust pick the time and the fish are there. We had a few warmer days moving the river temps up, then it became cool again, so who knows where the Snook went. Look to the deeper water as these fish are in their comfort zone, but slowmoving bait just might wake them up. The unusual week of changing wind directions, wave heaths ups and downs, and varying temperatures made it hard to plan. B ut it was a pretty good w eek depending on the day, with Dolphin to 20 pounds, K ings and Wahoo in the fifteen pound class, and a mix of Cobia, depending on the day. Dolphin and Sails were in the 130 to 150 feet, and the others were in 60 to 80 feet, all north of the inlet. Bait was not an issue, and I didnt hear of any anglers looking for live baits, so there must have been plenty. Tr olled ballyhoo was preferred, but live bait sure took its toll. M utton were south to the Loran Tower in numbers, so it was worth the ride, and came with a King or a Cobia to keep you on your toes. Looking back, I guess we had a pretty good week of fishing, now it just has to warm up. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

250 people participated in the Pine School's Knight Run in Color 5k, held at their Hobe Sound Campus on Friday, April 5. See more photos, B3. Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerKirsten Norman and Sean Carlson of Palm Beach Gardens splash pro golfer Greg Norman as he passes the third station. ST. LUCIE COUNTY Ser geant Gary Morales touched many lives in St. Lucie County. Whether remembered for being the approachable, down-to-earth deputy many residents knew him as, or the family-man adored by those closest to him, he seemed to have a profound effect on the community. In the wake of his senseless death, members of the community have rallied to help those who we re left behind. One of those who have felt the call to action is K evin Vanover, owner of Above Av erage Entertainment. He, with the help of Stevie Sticks, owner of C aptain Jax Bar and Grill, has put together a benefit event to be held Apr il 12. I lost my younger brother about four years ago, so the sense of loss is very real to me, Mr. V anover said. I just want the family to know we havent forgotten about them. We, as a community, want to take care of them as much as possible. This isnt Mr. Vanovers first experience with putting together a benefit in the wake of tragedy. After the school shootings at S andy Hook, he opened a Facebook page for the victims that soon jumped to nearly 400,000 followers. This gave him the idea to put together a benefit that r aised $5,000 for the families of the victims. When Mr. Vanover heard about S heriff Morales, he felt compelled to help. I immediately spoke with Stevie about doing something for Ga ry s family. We decided to wait a little while, because there have been so many benefits for the family. Each one helps and is very important, so we didnt want to interfere with any of the events. We spoke with his family members, and they agreed that this benefit would be a good idea, he said. W e want to help not only his family, but Fort Pierce in general. The downtown area is starting to come back to life, and it seems theres a new beginning to it. We want to not only remember and celebrate Mr. Morales; we want to celebrate the life that is being brought back to downtown Fort Pierce. The event will begin at 11 a.m. at Captain Jax, and will include lots of live music and entertainment. Al Papachubby will start the show at noon. Local favorites, The Humdingers, will take the stage at 1:30 p.m., followed by The B ig Coque Band, Blue Cypress B luegrass, Jackie Steil, The Cheyenne Band, Smokefog and r ounding out the evening, Metalucious beginning at 9 p.m. The benefit will also include r affles for items such as a flat screen TV, gift certificates and a pair of Western Wear boots. The silent auction will also have many spectacular items to bid on. A kids play area, provided by Chuck-N-Loris Entertainment, will keep little ones busy while adults find many ways to help the Mor ales family. There is a $5 charge at the door and a portion of each drink and food item purchased will be donated to the cause. C aptain Jax Bar and Grill is located at 658 N. Second St. in Fo rt Pierce. Fo r more information about the event,call Mr.Vanover at (772) 985-2083 or visit the Gary Morales B enefit page on Facebook.

If you own a home, you already know how hard and expensive it is to get rid of pesky weeds. S tore-brought weed killers are extremely expensive and if you read the label, you will find that they are very toxic to both y ou and the environment. Although there will be times when a commercial product is the only solution, you might want to try a few ideas we have that have less damaging to the earth. He re is a method that works, but requires multiple applications. The best part is that almost all of us already have it hanging around and it is extremely inexpensive. V inegar makes a great natural weed killer. The acidic nature of vinegar is what does the trick in killing off the plants. This method will work best on smaller weeds and it is best to apply in direct sunlight. It is also best to apply vinegar when there is no mention of rain in the forecast, as the substance has to remain on the weeds for some time in order to be effective. He re is another common household item that can kill weeds. Salt is something we all have hanging around the house and just a small dab will do the trick. If you have ever o wned a water softener, y ou know that the areas where the softener discharges when it regenerates will often leave a barren area where nothing will grow. This is the result of salt getting into the soil. S ince salt remains in the soil for sometime, this method is best used in areas where you do not intend to plant. A pplying salt between pavers, in gravel areas and in cracks between driveway slabs can help control w eeds for an extended period of time. It is not advisable to use this method around gardens or landscape shrubs as the salt may damage them. One of the most primitive ways to get rid of both w eeds and even fire ants is to use boiling water. Yes, this method actually works and it is the least expensive of all ways to utilize. Please take care as not to burn y ourself when trying this idea. Remember, there is zero toxicity to the envir onment when doing this. By far, one of the most common ways of keeping w eeds at bay is by the use of ground covers. One ecofriendly way of doing this is by using old newspapers. The next time you are planting in your garden, apply a layer of newspapers just under the soil layer. The newspapers act as a barrier to weeds but it is biodegradable and allows moisture to pass through. Y ou can also use garden mulch, but remember that to be eco-friendly, try to use natural ground covers such as pine needles or even ground-up leaves. If y ou do use a commercial mulching product, try to avoid the use of cypress so we can preserve this natural resource. R emember, Earth Day is coming soon and we all need to help preserve one of our most prized assets, M other Earth. I encourage y ou to try natural remedies first and to use these natural methods whenever possible. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

Sports have a way of marking our calendar. F or baseball fans, spring training marks the end of winter. Football usually ushers in the fall. F or me, nothing rings in the beginning of spring quite like the Masters. The Masters is my favorite golf tournament. As a child, my father would let me take a day off from school and, along with my mother, we'd drive from our home in War ner Robins, Georgia to A ugusta. It became a ritual every T uesday of Masters' week. F or a mere $5 apiece, we'd don our best walking shoes, and onto the hallowed grounds of Augusta National we would trek. I learned a lot of life's lessons those years. I was eight when I attended my first Masters practice round. The place had an aura about it even to a young boy. The flowers, the perfectly groomed fairways and greens all combined in jawdropping beauty. I remember how green everything was with just enough coloring from the azaleas splashed in to break it up. At The Masters I met a professional golfer for the first time. His name was Chi Chi Rodriguez, and to this day I can remember the time he took to talk to my parents and me. He was playing by himself and we caught up with him at the end of Amen Corner as he walked from the 13th green. Chi Chi stopped and talked with us as though we were old friends. It was at Augusta that I learned how genuinely nice people can be and how unbelievably rude as well. Ga ry P layer wouldn't even acknowledge me with a smile. As he walked from the sixth green to the seventh tee I said hello and asked him if he'd mind signing my autograph book. H is reply was that he wasn't there to sign autographs and talk to people. He was there to get ready to play The Masters. After being turned down by Mr. Player, a voice behind me asked if he could have the honor of signing my book. I turned to see the smiling face of Sam Snead. What a way to make a fan for life. When I met Sam again just a few months before he passed, I told him about that day and introduced him to my son. He had the same warm twinkle in his eye as he shook my y oung son's hand. Over the years, I met just about every player who teed it up at The Masters. I felt incredible joy along with J ack Nicklaus when he won for the sixth time in 1986. I felt pain and sadness for Greg Norman when he faltered that famous S unday. I too jumped with elation as Phil Mickelson's putt curled in and he won his first major. I also cried along with Bubba Watson last year as he broke down when he won. We've all felt the same emotions in life. The way I remember seeing those golfers handle adversity and triumph showed me how life should be taken. The reasons we love The M asters are too numerous to count. For many, seeing the same course and watching today's great players conquer the same hole that Sarazen doubleeagled to win in 1935 has a familiar warmth to it. It's like seeing an old, dear friend once a year. It's the only time we get to see him and we look forward to it, knowing it means the best of our year is about to begin. So me of us simply love to see the tradition that goes with The Masters. It's the only tournament that gives a spot in the field for every past champion. It is a fitting way to honor those who have triumphed where so many of us only dream of walking. One of the greatest traditions at The Masters is eating a pimento cheese sandwich. Since most of us won't be at Augusta National this weekend, we'll have to make our own. So to honor the tournament I love so much, one that taught me much about people and life and that brings back a flood of fond memories of time with my family, I give to you my own secret recipe for those famous pimento cheese sandwiches. M asters' Week Pimento Cheese Sandwich; one stick of extra sharp cheddar cheese (10-12 oz.), grated; 34 tbsp, mayonnaise; 4 oz. (or more if desired) diced pimentos, not well drained; black pepper to taste. Mix and serve on your choice of bread. And don't forget the green wax paper. Now where is that TV remote?
