At the beginning of Ap r il, adult arcades across the county boasted full parking lots and happy patrons. No w, a few weeks after Governor Rick Scott signed the bill passed by lawmakers banning the arcades, the businesses sit quiet and empty. A pproximately a dozen arcades in the county we re affected by the bill that banned not only I nternet cafes, but the adult arcades as well. The bill was a reaction from the state legislature after it was discovered that one particular Internet cafŽ, Allied Veterans of the World, that stated it was giving its profits to MARTIN COUNTY As the nation struggles with terrorist acts, gun control, continued economic insecurity, vast healthcare r eform and countless challenges to constitutional r ights, citizens of the United S tates are preparing to exercise their freedom to gather, worship and pray.

MARTIN COUNTY With more than six decades of experience helping the residents of the Treasure C oast find their perfect home, brother and sister team of Steven Schlitt and Linda Schlitt-Gonzalez took a few moments recently to reflect back on the history of their company and speak on how their commitment to the people that live and work on the Tr easure Coast enabled them to stay successful. Mr. Schlitt and Ms. Schlitt-Gonzalez are CFO and President, respectively, of Coldwell Banker Paradise Ho yt Murphy Realty. The name Schlitt" will sound familiar to several of the older families in the area, as it was their parents, Ed and Marguerite Schlitt, who first established the realty in 1953. B ack then, it was an insurance and r ealty company with just five employees located in what is now known as the Irish American Club on 20th Street in Vero Beach. "I started doing phone work in high school, then went into sales in 1974," said Ms. Schlitt-Gonzalez. Her brother Steven came back to the family business in 1998. B ack then, through to the 1980s, the realty worked on developing projects. "W e were involved in the building of the first two condominiums on the island," she said. By the 80s and 90s, the company shifted focus to selling land to developers, who then sold to builders. When the new century began, the focus in real estate shifted again, this time to a resale market. Mr. Schlitt noted the increased professionalism that realty companies as a whole experienced over the y ears. "W e now have the multiple listing service, professional standards and cooperation," he said. No w, the market is experiencing a growth in real estate sales, but because of the longevity of the company, they expected the upturn. There have always been these cycles of real estate in Florida," Mr. Schlitt said. "We've seen the bottom and now we're going to see a period of growth." In the local market, the company does a lot of business with retirees and second home buyers. But a growing trend here on the Treasure C oast is of families moving to the area, both from up north, as well as Sevin Bullwinkle/ staff photographerCommunity members walk the course around the commemorative candles at Relay for Life in Hobe Sound.Relay for Life of Hobe Sound benefitting the American Cancer Society is an opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate loved ones who have survived, and remember and honor the ones who have lost their lives through cancer.

veterans was actually doing very little for the military group. D espite protests from the businesses owners and the patrons who attend the arcades, the bill was signed into law on April 10. The bill, HB 155, gives local law enforcement specific definitions of illegal gambling machines and how to handle suspected violations. from the southern part of the state. The team relies on the strength of the company to be able to serve the variety of needs that an agricultural community that also sits by the ocean presents. "W e have specializations in every area, and our agents work very closely together," he said. What helps is the new technology that is not only available to them, but what they have also developed themselves. "W e can now access data and research in a more mobile environment using iPads and cell phones," Mr. Schlitt said. "For example, we can use an iPad to give someone in another state a virtual tour of a property here." In addition, the use of technology allows the company to do business remotely to help the buyer or seller that can be here in person. The company has also developed its own buyer's guide that is published four times a year, featuring a vast selection of different real estate properties all over the Tr easure Coast. R ecently, the realty acquired Hoyt Murphy Realty in June of 2012, as well as Paradise Property in Brevard that same year. The secret to their success lies in working together as a team and helping others in the community. "W e spend a lot of our own time organizing fundraisers," Ms. Schlitt-Gonzalez said. "O ur agents are very active and eager to give back to the community and their clients."

By 11 a.m., the line for people getting into the fair snaked down the long hallway running next to the gymnasium, where the fair was being conducted. The turnout was fantastic," said O daly Victorio, the communication coordinator for Workforce Solutions. A ccording to Ms. Victorio, more than 500 people were waiting for the event doors to open to be the first to take advantage of the 89 employers from St. L ucie, Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties who are waiting to talk to them. A number of businesses from all over the Treasure Coast had representatives at the event, including the Fort Pierce P olice Department, the city of Port St. L ucie, St. Lucie County, Indian River S tate College and the St. Lucie County School Board. In addition to the employer booths, there were also two sessions to show potential employees how to write a successful resume and share tips on having a successful interview. Another job fair is planned for the fall, but for now, Ms. Victorio says all the employers have information on the Wo r kforce Solutions website.

This w eek, with all the events going on, I wanted to take a moment and make sure I recognize as many people as possible for all the hard work they do. The first shout-out goes to Martin County High School, whose culinary team went up against 55 other teams in the state during the 2013 ProStart C ulinary Team Competition in Orlando recently. At the end of the competition, Martin County High School walked away with a fourth place award for the waiters relay, where teams demonstrated their ability to duplicate a table setting while racing against the clock. A particular student that deserves big congratulations is Matthew Edwards, who attends The Pine School and is the valedictor ian. He was recently named as a one of the top 24 student athletes in the state of F lorida by the Florida High School Athletic Association. W ithout naming everyone individually, because it would just be too many to mention, I wanted to congratulate the Hobe S ound Relay for Life on another successful relay. I could tell all the teams were committed to the cause. I hope to see some of them at the Martin County r elay at Memorial Park next w eek. B ut if you want to get a head start on giving to Relay now, head over to Carrabba's Italian Grill in Stuart for dinner on Thursday, April 30. From 5 to 9 p.m., the r estaurant will feature a dinner for $12 that will include penne pasta, meatballs, Caesar salad, bread, and a beverage, with the proceeds going to the r elay. For tickets, check with a member of a relay team (they're everywhere!) or just call the American Cancer S ociety at (772) 287-7467. And if you're thinking Grease is the word, you're ri ght this weekend, as S tarStruck Theatre and the T eenStars bring the musical to life with performances at 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. These talented students will take us all back to Ry dell High School to watch y oung love bloom, but only for this weekend only, so warm up your hand jive and have fun. No matter what you decide to do this weekend, have fun and drive safe. D awn Krebs is the Associate Managing Editor for H ometown News and can be reached at dkrebs@hometownnewsol.c om.

Sexual abuse is topic of free seminar STUART Millions of children are sexually abused every year in the United S tates. Many cases go undetected and unreported often because children are afraid to tell someone who can help. Pa r ents are invited to attend a free seminar entitled, "It's OK to Tell," at 5:30 p .m. Monday, April 29 at the B lake Library, 2351 S.E. M onterey Road in Stuart. The seminar is part of the O ur Kids! Parent Seminar Se r ies sponsored by Tykes and Teens, CHARACTER C OUNTS!, Martin County Library System and the Martin County School District. "I t' s OK to Tell" will provide parents with important information on protecting their children from sexual abuse including: a definitive and comprehensive explanation of child sexual abuse and its dynamics; current child sexual abuse statistics; and specific and detailed ways that child safety can be increased. Materials will be provided to parents with information on safe and unsafe touch, boundary setting, secret keeping, warning signs, and stranger dangers. "I t' s OK to Tell" will be conducted by Robbin Wolf, a local child, adolescent and adult psychotherapist who, in addition to her private practice, works with Tykes & T eens, a nonprofit agency in P alm City dedicated to the social-emotional healing of children and their families. Ms. Wolf's clinical experience has included the intensive treatment unit at Sa v annah's Hospital for the severely emotionally disturbed and Hibiscus Children's Shelter in Jensen B each which provides residential safety for young children who were removed from their homes due to severe abuse and neglect. Ms. Wolf is also a longtime adjunct faculty member for the human service department at Indian River State C ollege in Fort Pierce. R egistration is required.

Law enforcement appreciation dinner will feature attorney general TREASURE COAST F lorida Attorney General P am Bondi will be guest speaker at the Treasure C oast Crime Stoppers Law Enforcement Appreciation D inner, being held at the P elican Yacht Club in Fort Pierce. The public is invited to come and hear Ms. Bondi speak at the dinner. "W e were fortunate to be able to have Ms. Bondi as the keynote speaker," said Ed G laser, executive director of the Treasure Coast Cr ime Stoppers. A native of Tampa, Ms. B ondi became Florida's 37th A ttorney General on Nov. 2, 2010. She is currently a member on the board of The Spring, a domestic violence shelter in Tampa. She also serves on the Special O lympic Florida Board of Di r ectors. In addition to numerous awards, she was also recognized with the 2011 Leadership Award by the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators for her efforts to stop prescription drug abuse. The dinner is the first of its kind for the Treasure C oast Crime Stoppers, a nonprofit group serving St. L ucie, Martin, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. The nonprofit organization helps those agencies by providing a way for residents to anonymously provide tips that can lead to arrests of criminals or r ecovery of property. "W e have worked with 15 different law enforcement agencies throughout the area," Mr. Glaser said. "So we wanted to recognize them all for supporting us ov er the years." All the law-enforcement agencies in the four-county area will receive an award that evening. Through the organization, the tips are passed on to the law enforcement working the case and if the tip proves successful, the person who left it is eligible for a cash reward. Last year, approximately 180 arrests were made based on tips received through the nonprofit. This y ear, the organization is averaging about 75 tips a month.

One of the questions that I am asked frequently by people who are looking to buy a new computer is whether the machine they are looking at has enough RAM. U sually I ask them what they are planning on using the machine for and how much memory the machine has. Then I usually can't help but to laugh inside when I hear the answer. I t's very common today to hear things like "well it only has two gigabytes of memory and all I'm planning on doing with it is email and surfing the Web. Wi ll two gigs be enough?" Or, "I don't use the machine for much, I just mainly use it for email and Quicken. Qu icken is very important to me and I want to make sure my new machine is going to be able to run it OK. Are you sure that just two gigabytes is going to be able to do the job?" And, "the ad says this machine can take up to four gigabytes. Maybe I should get four just to be safe. What do you think?" I t's at that point I usually have to stifle a chuckle because to me that's funny. No w, don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be rude, cocky or arrogant, it's just that I've been doing this for a while and I can remember, not too long ago, when just the idea of having a gigabyte of memory in your home computer was the stuff of science fiction. I can even remember writing a column in 1996 explaining to readers how they should be able to run their machines with just 16 megabytes of memory. Just to put that in perspective, 1,000 megabytes equals 1 gigabyte. Again, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you can run one of today's machines with only 16 mb; y ou certainly do need considerably more than that to run Windows 8, W indows 7, Vista or even XP, but even with a fancy operating system such as W indows 8, the basic tasks haven't changed much and two gigs of memory should be just fine to check e-mail, surf the Web and run Q uicken. Another way to put the whole memory question into perspective is to think of it in terms of money. B ack around 1996, when W indows still in its infancy, RAM was very expensive. At the time that I wrote that previous column, saying 16 mb was enough, RAM was going for about $50 per megabyte, meaning that the 16 mb I was advocating cost about $800. So that means a gigabyte, or 1,000 megabytes, back then would have cost about $50,000! Another factor that I consider is the level of machine that they are r eplacing. Very often, I will speak to someone who is r eplacing an old system and they wonder if two gigab ytes will work for them on the new machine. Doesn't it stand to reason that if you we re able to surf the Web, check your email and run Q uicken on the machine y ou are replacing, then a new machine, with more than 10 times the memory, shouldn't have a problem handling those same tasks? T oday, the tasks haven't changed. It's still email, the W eb and maybe some critical program such as Q uicken, but whenever I hear people pondering whether two gigabytes will do it for them I can't help but hear that little "grampa voice" in the back of my head saying, "back in my day we couldn't afford a gigabyte. We got by with 16 megs and we liked it!" B ack in 1996, I don't think I could have ever imagined being able to get a gigabyte of RAM, let alone pay less than $100 for it. The whole thing makes me wonder what things will be like a decade or so in the future. In 10 years, will we have people wondering if 1 terabyte 1,000 gigabytes will be enough or if maybe they should spring for two? Regardless, I'm sure they will probably still only use their machine for checking e-mail, surfing the W eb and running Quicken.

Some Postal Service loveI can write to my dearest sister who lives in Pennsylvania, walk out to my mailbox located in front of my house here in Florida, and for 46 cents count on my mail person to pick up my letter sometime today and with almost 100 percent assurance it will be put in my sister's mailbox located in front of her house in Pennsylvania within 3 to 5 days. One quarter, two dimes and a penny. Pretty convenient, something I can depend on and not a bad price at all considering what I'm getting for my change. Thank you, USPS.Fishing is for the birdsI read this article and it lit my fire. The fishing here has gone from great to awful in three years. The proof is now in that in Indian River County, 37,000 septic tanks are dumping 10 million gallons of effluent a day and it winds up in the Lagoon. Florida requires 60 percent of the residents to approve moving to sewers and the local residents don't want to pay up. This is everyone's problem, since fishing and watersports bring the local economy millions each y ear. Think. Hotels, restaurants, retirement housing, real estate businesses, tackle shops, fishing guides and boat dealers will begin to suffer. A few years from now the tax base will shrink dramatically. Is the Florida DEP asleep? Why do the residents get a choice to cause an environmental and economic disaster? What are the impacted organizations, local newspapers, associations and civic leaders doing? If you wait much longer to address this issue, you will suffer an economic and environmental disaster that will take over a decade to fix. No more teacher rantsA ccording to the National Mining Association the average coal miners wage in 2011 in the United States was $81,200 per year. TeacherSalaryInfo.com states the average teacher's salary in St. Lucie County in 2012 is $33,200. I'm sure the majority of teachers here would trade a chance to work in the mines even though we may contract a little "black lung" and the possibility of been "as blind as moles" to make almost three times the money. As a teacher, I'd take twice that just to avoid reading the r ants of a few delusional ignorant people who obviously place no value on our children's education or the people who go above and beyond (I average $600 plus a year out of my own salary to buy supplies) to provide it. Bring back the arcadesThese were places to meet people and socialize and play the machines, maybe have some lunch. Many of these people do not drive, movies are very expensive and the snacks even more so, or spending money for a trip to a casino by bus. Give us a break and bring back the arcades for all of usUntil it's your child The only ban President Obama wanted on guns was on the AR-15's and the AK-47's. There has been nothing said about taking your shotguns your rifles you hunt with or y our pistols. There should be background checks on everybody that wants to buy a gun. These gun shows do not do background checks. Anyone can buy a gun from them and go on a shooting spree. What in Sam Hill has happened to this country? People have gone crazy over guns. They don't give a crap about human life. Look at all the kids that have been murdered. I just bet if all you gun-ho people sent y our little one to school and some nut went there with an assault rifle and killed your child plus hundreds of others, y ou would maybe feel different? What is the NRA doing r unning Washington anyway? All I hear is the NRA this and the NRA that. Why is congress accepting money from them to not pass a bill like getting rid of these assault guns? No, peaceful American gun owners do not threaten others. But there are these crazy nuts out there that kill the children. Don't you peaceful Americans want to stop the killings or do you just close y our eyes because it isn't your child yet!Act like trash, pick up trashR ecently, several articles were written ranting about litter problems. We have many people committing criminal acts within our community. These people rob us, harm us, commit property damage, take advantage of us and give our community a bad name. I think it's time to pay it back. The misdemeanor offenders get litter projects along with jail time. They wear a fluorescent T-shirt that states "I Love My C ommunity and I'm Paying Back." Everyone will see them and this if not a lesson learned for them; at least it will benefit us. The message it speaks is "Act like trash then pick up trash." I would much rather see our tax dollars pay for supervision of a program like this that truly benefits us as a whole. More regarding the food stamp programWe applied for food stamps on March 31, after my husband lost his job. His employer's bounced payroll checks in January 2013, and he ended up not getting paid for a month because the employer could not meet payroll. My husband was supposed to receive a two-week unemployment check from the State of Florida Unemployment Office. He got his first one-week check in February, not a two-week claim as stated. We got a letter from the Food Stamp office on February 23, stating that we make too much money for being both on unemployment compensation. My husband gets $167 per week and I get $186 per week, which averages less than $5 per hour. We have a reasonable mortgage that increased from $550 per month to $750 per month due to a homeowner's insurance increase. We have no cell phones, a small vehicle payment and auto and basic household bills. We can barely meet these basic needs. We do not need cable to survive. We do not eat out, take v acations or spend money on new luxury items. We've still got an old television and freeze leftovers for tight financial we eks, yet we were denied food stamps. Thank you for not giving us temporary food assistance. Thank goodness we pre-paid our unemployment wages while working legally in Florida while illegal immigrants get food stamps somehow and insurance for their kids.L eave the parks aloneS top taking away all of the public parks. We should have a say in what happens with our tax money.We should revolt against the oil companiesF or years we have been driving around and filling up our tanks and didn't think about gas prices rising. The oil companies are sticking it to us with the high prices. We should have a gas-out day, when we just don't buy gas for the day. We should stick it to them like they've been sticking it to us. Why can't we do something about it? The middle class can't even survive anymore; never mind the people that have been struggling for a long time now. We should all get together and do something.Code enforcement should do their jobIn answer to the rant about code enforcement and residents not seeing them doing their job; look up and down U.S. 1, they are there making life difficult for small business owners.Slow down, save gasOne way to save gasoline is to slow down. Leave for work a little earlier and enjoy the ride. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com.

Help yourself reduce investment stress with diversity, planning You probably aren't too worried about it, but Ap r il is Stress Awareness M onth. Each year, the Health R esource Network sponsors this "month" to inform people about the dangers of stress and to share successful coping strategies. Obviously, it's important to reduce stress in all walks of life including y our investment activities. How can you cut down on the va r ious stresses associated with investing? He re are a few possible stress-busters:" Know your risk tolerance. If yo u' re constantly worrying about the value of your investments, your portfolio may simply be too volatile for y our individual risk tolerance. Conversely, if you're always feeling that your investments will never provide you with the growth y ou need to achieve your long-term goals, you might be investing too conservatively. Know what to expect from your investments. U ncertainty is often a leading cause of stress. So when you purchase investments that are mysterious to you, you shouldn't be surprised if they perform in ways that raise y our stress levels. Never invest in something unless y ou fully understand its characteristics and risk potential. Be prepared for market volatility. Over the long term, the financial markets have trended upward, though their past performance can't guarantee future results. Yet for periods of months, and even years, these same markets can sputter and decline. So when you invest, be aware of this volatility; if yo u' re prepared for it, you won't be shocked when it happens, and you should be able to better keep stress at bay. Maintain realistic expectations. If you think y our investments are going to earn a very high rate of r eturn, year after year, you are more than likely going to be disappointed and you could easily get "stressed out." You're much better off, from a stress standpoint, not to expect eye-popping r esults. Diversify your portfolio. If y ou were only to own one asset class, such as growth stocks, and that particular segment took a big hit during a market drop, your whole portfolio could suffer, and it could take years to recover causing you no end of stress. B ut if you spread your investment dollars among a r ange of vehicles stocks, bonds, government securities and so on your portfolio has a better chance of w eathering the ups and downs of the market. Keep in mind, though, that while diversification may help you r educe the effects of volatility, it can't prevent losses or guarantee profits. Think long term. If you only measure your investment success by short-term r esults, you can feel frustrated and stressed. But when y ou stop to consider your objectives, you may find that the most important ones, such as a comfortable r etirement, are all long-term in nature. Consequently, it makes more sense to measure the progress you're making with your investments in periods of years, or even decades, rather than days or months. Instead of fretting over your monthly investment statements, compare where you are today versus where you were 10 or 15 years ago. The results may w ell surprise and help "destress" you. St r ess Awareness Month will come and go. But by making the right moves, you can help take some of the stress out of investing for a long time to come.

With the things that have been evolving with our earth, Earth Day is becoming more and more of an important event in our society. Earth Day is a day we can look around and see all the wonders that nature has bestowed on us. It is also a great time to think about how we can protect and beautify our environment. This task can be as simple as planting a single tree to beautify our yard, possibly planting a colorful garden for all to enjoy on your property or even donating your time to a local garden club to help beautify an area of your city or town. W ith the growing needs of our fragile environment, now more then ever, 2013 will be an important year to do everything we can to both beautify and balance our environment. The idea of Earth Day was initiated in 1962 as a way to get people aware of what is going on in our environment. It all started with President Kennedy in 1963 when he took a fiveday conservation tour of our nation. The first official Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. Since then, Earth Day has blossomed into a national celebration where people initiate ideas that can help make our envir onment more eye-appealing and a better place to live. W ith all the hype on how we are depleting our C ypress forests by the use of Cypress mulch, there are many other natural alternatives we can use that are both functional and also will save our natural r esources. One thing we can use that we all have plenty of is natural grass clippings. That's right, grass clippings can make an excellent mulching material that you can use on almost all your plants and flowers. You do need to be sure, however, that your turf has not been r ecently treated with any herbicides. The herbicides may damage some of your tender plants. P lace the clippings around your plants in layers. Make each of your layers thin and not too thick, as the mulch will produce a smell. Apply the next thin layer after the initial layer has been allowed to dry out. As the clippings decompose, they will produce a fertilizing effect on your plants. The clippings tend to add nutrients back to the soil as they decay and work their way into the dirt. Another great natural mulching material is pine needles. This material is not suitable for all plants, but is great for the majority of plants we use in this part of Florida. Y ou can use pine clippings on any plants that are acid loving. This list can include ixoria, hibiscus, bottlebrush, azalea, gardenia, junipers, and banana trees along with many other plants that r equire a high-acid content in the soil. N ot only do many of these natural remedies save resources, they also save you money. Doing large areas of your yard with commercial products can cost a fortune. With the money you save on mulching materials, you will be able to purchase lots more colorful flowers! Ma ny of your favorite plants that you have in y our yard can be easily propagated into new plants without the need to keep buying new plants. Ro ses are a great example of this. In the spring, you can choose cuttings that are healthy and green and they will make good candidates for cuttings. U sing a sharp knife, cut off the soft tip of the cane and then cut it into fourto five-inch pieces. Each piece should have at least two nodes and some leaves. Strip off the bottom leaves to expose a node, and then plant the cutting in moist soil and keep it in bright shade and high humidity. Y ou can use containers covered with plastic bags, or set them in the ground in the shade and cover them with plastic jugs. E ither method should work fine. T ake several cuttings to be sure you have success with at least several. You are now on your way to propagating your own rose garden!

MARTIN COUNTY Pe r formers that stretch the boundaries of their musical genres will share the stage this week at the Ly r ic Theatre. F or one performance only, rock and roll legend E dgar Winter will take to the Lyric Stage for a live performance not to be missed at 8 p.m. on April 26. He demonstrated his unique style and ability to cross musical genres when he released his album They Only Come O ut at Night in 1973. Fr om that album came the No. 1 hit "Frankenstein" and the popular song "Free Ride." The album itself peaked at No 3 on the Billboard H ot 200 and stayed on the charts for 80 weeks. It w ent on to become certified gold in April 1973 and double platinum in 1986. It was during the "Fr ankenstein" that he became the first artist to feature a synthesizer as the main instrument, which changed the genre and opened up a whole new world of possibilities with experimentation and sound. Mr. Winter actually invented the keyboard body strap he uses on stage, which allows him to move around more during performances. Then, on April 28, the Grammy-award winning banjo player Alison Br o wn and her Quartet are performing, their appearance on the Lyric stage. The quartet features a banjo, piano, bass and drums and offers up a sound that blends jazz, bluegrass, Latin and folk music. E dgar Winter will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 2 6, at the Lyric Theatre, located at 59 S.W. F lagler Ave., in Stuart. The Alison Brown Quartet will perform at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 28. F or more information on either show,call (772) 286-7827 or go online to www.lyrictheatre.com. On Saturday, April 27, the YMCA of the Treasure Coast is celebrating YMCA's Healthy K ids Day with a free community event that encourages kids on the Treasure Coast to get moving and learning, and families living healthier. H ealthy Kids Day, the Y's national initiative to improve families' health and wellbeing, takes place at 1,900 Ys and kick-starts healthier behaviors now and throughout the summer, a critical out-of-school time for children's health. H ealthy Kids Day will take place at two Treasure Coast locations: the Stuart branch on Monterey Road and the YMCA Program Center on B ayshore Boulevard in Port S t. Lucie. The events will be held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and will feature fun and active play activities, such as dance demonstrations, bounce houses, arts and crafts and many local kidr elated informational vendors. M any children do not get the daily recommended hours of physical activity and r eading, and daily amounts of healthy foods in the United S tates. According to the latest findings of the YMCA's Family H ealth Snapshot a survey of parents that gauges their children's activity levels during the school year only 19 percent of children get 60 minutes of physical activity, only 17 percent read books for fun, and only 12 percent eat at least eight fruits and vegetables daily. "A t the YMCA of the Treasure Coast we know parents struggle to keep their kids physically and intellectually active every day. We want to help ensure fewer kids are at r isk of childhood obesity and more kids excel in school," said Elisha Stoecklin, senior program director for the YMCA of the Treasure Coast. YMCA's Healthy Kids Day will get kids moving and learning while also helping families get a jump on creating a healthier summer, and ultimately a healthier future." R esearch shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. On April 27, YMCA's H ealthy Kids Day will help parents begin thinking early about what their kids need in order to grow and achieve all summer long. YMCA's Healthy Kids Day is supported locally by Seacoast N ational Bank. Nationally, the event is supported by media partners Sprout and Lazy Town, who are committed to encouraging kids to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Once located, it was pretty simple. Crab on a jig head casting in their direction and hang on. The first problem was finding crabs or big shrimp, and the second problem was the sharks. Both were a big problem. If y ou were going to put one in the boat, you had to be fast and use a big piece of equipment. It was not the time for a knife in the gun fight. When that fish eats your bait you need to muscle that fish to the boat and into the box, or it will be a snack for the man in gray. Right now there is plenty of Cobia in the mix, so the Dolphin can wait. Now, there are lots of boats on these fish, but it is a big ocean, so give everybody lots of room and time for everyone to practice their best manners. Dolphins were in 130 feet with a few Sails and plenty of small Kings. Yes, it was a good week for the off-shore anglers. There are still bigger B lues in the surf for that early angler. Eating cut baits, these fish are there most of the day, but the numbers are early. P ompano at the Tiger S hores access were in and out, but when they are in, they are there in good numbers, so there's no special time. You just have to be there. S ummer has arrived and the Snook have made a good show at the surfs edge. Bombers plugs, Krystal minnows and DOA B ait Buster are all working w ell. Get your feet wet, cast in the trough for bright silver, slot size, real nice fish. P lenty of Whiting, and there's all good size, so do not forget the ice. It 's a beautiful blue surf. F inally summer is here, and any day I know the Tarpon will show. River anglers are all talking about the St. Lucie River, north fork and south fork having big Snook. T emperatures are perfect, with the deep water and plenty of baits. Trolling is the key, mid channel, big B ombers and Rat-l-traps just as the sun sets gets lots of big fish. Good week for the Snook anglers, with plenty of shorts in the flats and plenty of fish well over the slot at the bridges. Low light was preferred. S till plenty of Blues, Macs and Jacks to keep busy, but slot Trout have been a hard find with all the wind. Look for the flat water, and that is where the bait is and where the fish are. Be quick, because the wind is about to change directions and y ou will be looking again for that flat water. Already the third week in April and we still have March wind.

At the beginning of Apr il, adult arcades across the county boasted full parking lots and happy patrons. Now, a few weeks after Governor Rick Scott signed the bill passed by lawmakers banning the arcades, the businesses sit quiet and empty. A pproximately a dozen arcades in the county we re affected by the bill that banned not only I nternet cafes, but the adult arcades as well. The bill was a reaction from the state legislature after it was discovered that one particular Internet caf, Allied Veterans of the World, that stated it was giving its profits to MARTIN COUNTY As the nation struggles with terrorist acts, gun control, continued economic insecurity, vast healthcare r eform and countless challenges to constitutional r ights, citizens of the United S tates are preparing to exercise their freedom to gather, worship and pray. M illions will answer the call to prayer on May 2 in observance of the 62nd annual National Day of Pray er. Organized events will be held in thousands of public venues where intercession will be made for America and its leadership. Locally, The Salvation Army of Martin County will ask the community to pray for the nation at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 2, at The Sa lvation Army Corps, located at 821 S.E. Martin Luther K ing Jr. Blvd., in East Stuart. The Salvation Army of Mar tin County works throughout the year to provide food and financial assistance to those in distress. Other programs offered by The Salvation Army include emergency disaster assistance, a Friday night food ministry (which provides a hot meal to more than 100 people weekly), y outh character building programs, a morning Breakfast Club (providing pastries, bread and coffee free of charge), Sunday worship services, Bible studies and y outh ministry. The Salvation Army of Mar tin County also operates C ompassion House, which provides transitional housing to homeless women and women with children. The Salvation Army is located at 821 Martin Luther K ing Jr. Blvd. in East Stuart. Fo r more information,call (772) 288-1471 or visit www.salvationarmystuart.o r g. MARTIN COUNTY With more than six decades of experience helping the residents of the Treasure C oast find their perfect home, brother and sister team of Steven Schlitt and Linda Schlitt-Gonzalez took a few moments recently to reflect back on the history of their company and speak on how their commitment to the people that live and work on the Tr easure Coast enabled them to stay successful. Mr. Schlitt and Ms. Schlitt-Gonzalez are CFO and President, respectively, of Coldwell Banker Paradise Hoyt Murphy Realty. The name Schlitt will sound familiar to several of the older families in the area, as it was their parents, Ed and Marguerite Schlitt, who first established the realty in 1953. B ack then, it was an insurance and r ealty company with just five employees located in what is now known as the Irish American Club on 20th Street in Vero Beach. I started doing phone work in high school, then went into sales in 1974, said Ms. Schlitt-Gonzalez. Her brother Steven came back to the family business in 1998. B ack then, through to the 1980s, the realty worked on developing projects. W e were involved in the building of the first two condominiums on the island, she said. By the 80s and 90s, the company shifted focus to selling land to developers, who then sold to builders. When the new century began, the focus in real estate shifted again, this time to a resale market. Mr. Schlitt noted the increased professionalism that realty companies as a whole experienced over the y ears. W e now have the multiple listing service, professional standards and cooperation, he said. Now, the market is experiencing a growth in real estate sales, but because of the longevity of the company, they expected the upturn. There have always been these cycles of real estate in Florida, Mr. Schlitt said. Weve seen the bottom and now were going to see a period of growth. In the local market, the company does a lot of business with retirees and second home buyers. But a growing trend here on the Treasure C oast is of families moving to the area, both from up north, as well as Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerCommunity members walk the course around the commemorative candles at Relay for Life in Hobe Sound.Relay for Life of Hobe Sound benefitting the American Cancer Society is an opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate loved ones who have survived, and remember and honor the ones who have lost their lives through cancer.

Learn about Rio public art The Martin County Community Development D epartment is inviting the public to participate in the creation of the Rio Public Art and Placemaking Plan. A kick-off meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at the Rio Civic Center, located at 1255 N.E. Dixie Highway in J ensen Beach. I f you have ideas on creating great community spaces to enhance the look and feel of Rio, this is the perfect opportunity to share those ideas and interact with an illustrator while he transforms them into artistic representations, said Nancy Johnson, a community development representative. At the meeting, illustrator J ohn Zanetta of Zanetta I llustration will be on hand to bring resident ideas to life on paper. The residents will also learn whats been happening to promote the creation of expressive spaces in the Rio area. After the kick-off meeting, there will be drop-in workshops scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 30 and May 1, where residents can stop by and see the illustrator drawing out the ideas. The final presentation for the project will take place at 6 p.m. on May 1.

veterans was actually doing very little for the military group. D espite protests from the businesses owners and the patrons who attend the arcades, the bill was signed into law on April 10. The bill, HB 155, gives local law enforcement specific definitions of illegal gambling machines and how to handle suspected violations. from the southern part of the state. The team relies on the strength of the company to be able to serve the variety of needs that an agricultural community that also sits by the ocean presents. W e have specializations in every area, and our agents work very closely together, he said. What helps is the new technology that is not only available to them, but what they have also developed themselves. W e can now access data and research in a more mobile environment using iPads and cell phones, Mr. Schlitt said. For example, we can use an iPad to give someone in another state a virtual tour of a property here. In addition, the use of technology allows the company to do business remotely to help the buyer or seller that can be here in person. The company has also developed its own buyers guide that is published four times a year, featuring a vast selection of different real estate properties all over the Tr easure Coast. R ecently, the realty acquired Hoyt Murphy Realty in June of 2012, as well as Paradise Property in Brevard that same year. The secret to their success lies in working together as a team and helping others in the community. W e spend a lot of our own time organizing fundraisers, Ms. Schlitt-Gonzalez said. O ur agents are very active and eager to give back to the community and their clients.

ST. LUCIE COUNTY Hundreds of job seekers traveled to the Havert L. Fe nn Center in Fort Pierce on Wednesday on April 17 for the Spring Job Fair. By 11 a.m., the line for people getting into the fair snaked down the long hallway running next to the gymnasium, where the fair was being conducted. The turnout was fantastic, said O daly Victorio, the communication coordinator for Workforce Solutions. A ccording to Ms. Victorio, more than 500 people were waiting for the event doors to open to be the first to take advantage of the 89 employers from St. L ucie, Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee counties who are waiting to talk to them. A number of businesses from all over the Treasure Coast had representatives at the event, including the Fort Pierce P olice Department, the city of Port St. L ucie, St. Lucie County, Indian River S tate College and the St. Lucie County School Board. In addition to the employer booths, there were also two sessions to show potential employees how to write a successful resume and share tips on having a successful interview. Another job fair is planned for the fall, but for now, Ms. Victorio says all the employers have information on the Wor kforce Solutions website. Wor kforce Solutions is a private, nonprofit organization that helps area businesses, job seekers and economic development.

This w eek, with all the events going on, I wanted to take a moment and make sure I recognize as many people as possible for all the hard work they do. The first shout-out goes to Martin County High School, whose culinary team went up against 55 other teams in the state during the 2013 ProStart C ulinary Team Competition in Orlando recently. At the end of the competition, Martin County High School walked away with a fourth place award for the waiters relay, where teams demonstrated their ability to duplicate a table setting while racing against the clock. A particular student that deserves big congratulations is Matthew Edwards, who attends The Pine School and is the valedictor ian. He was recently named as a one of the top 24 student athletes in the state of F lorida by the Florida High School Athletic Association. W ithout naming everyone individually, because it would just be too many to mention, I wanted to congratulate the Hobe S ound Relay for Life on another successful relay. I could tell all the teams were committed to the cause. I hope to see some of them at the Martin County r elay at Memorial Park next w eek. B ut if you want to get a head start on giving to Relay now, head over to Carrabbas Italian Grill in Stuart for dinner on Thursday, April 30. From 5 to 9 p.m., the r estaurant will feature a dinner for $12 that will include penne pasta, meatballs, Caesar salad, bread, and a beverage, with the proceeds going to the r elay. For tickets, check with a member of a relay team (theyre everywhere!) or just call the American Cancer S ociety at (772) 287-7467. And if youre thinking Grease is the word, youre ri ght this weekend, as S tarStruck Theatre and the T eenStars bring the musical to life with performances at 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. These talented students will take us all back to Ry dell High School to watch y oung love bloom, but only for this weekend only, so warm up your hand jive and have fun. No matter what you decide to do this weekend, have fun and drive safe. D awn Krebs is the Associate Managing Editor for H ometown News and can be reached at dkrebs@hometownnewsol.c om.

Sexual abuse is topic of free seminar STUART Millions of children are sexually abused every year in the United S tates.

The dinner is the first of its kind for the Treasure C oast Crime Stoppers, a nonprofit group serving St. L ucie, Martin, Indian River and Okeechobee counties. The nonprofit organization helps those agencies by providing a way for residents to anonymously provide tips that can lead to arrests of criminals or r ecovery of property. W e have worked with 15 different law enforcement agencies throughout the area, Mr. Glaser said. So we wanted to recognize them all for supporting us ov er the years. All the law-enforcement agencies in the four-county area will receive an award that evening. Through the organization, the tips are passed on to the law enforcement working the case and if the tip proves successful, the person who left it is eligible for a cash reward. Last year, approximately 180 arrests were made based on tips received through the nonprofit. This y ear, the organization is averaging about 75 tips a month.

One of the questions that I am asked frequently by people who are looking to buy a new computer is whether the machine they are looking at has enough RAM. U sually I ask them what they are planning on using the machine for and how much memory the machine has. Then I usually can't help but to laugh inside when I hear the answer. I t's very common today to hear things like "well it only has two gigabytes of memory and all I'm planning on doing with it is email and surfing the Web. Wi ll two gigs be enough?" Or, "I don't use the machine for much, I just mainly use it for email and Quicken. Qu icken is very important to me and I want to make sure my new machine is going to be able to run it OK. Are you sure that just two gigabytes is going to be able to do the job?" And, "the ad says this machine can take up to four gigabytes. Maybe I should get four just to be safe. What do you think?" I t's at that point I usually have to stifle a chuckle because to me that's funny. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be rude, cocky or arrogant, it's just that I've been doing this for a while and I can remember, not too long ago, when just the idea of having a gigabyte of memory in your home computer was the stuff of science fiction. I can even remember writing a column in 1996 explaining to readers how they should be able to run their machines with just 16 megabytes of memory. Just to put that in perspective, 1,000 megabytes equals 1 gigabyte. Again, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying you can run one of today's machines with only 16 mb; y ou certainly do need considerably more than that to run Windows 8, W indows 7, Vista or even XP, but even with a fancy operating system such as W indows 8, the basic tasks haven't changed much and two gigs of memory should be just fine to check e-mail, surf the Web and run Q uicken. Another way to put the whole memory question into perspective is to think of it in terms of money. B ack around 1996, when W indows still in its infancy, RAM was very expensive. At the time that I wrote that previous column, saying 16 mb was enough, RAM was going for about $50 per megabyte, meaning that the 16 mb I was advocating cost about $800. So that means a gigabyte, or 1,000 megabytes, back then would have cost about $50,000! Another factor that I consider is the level of machine that they are r eplacing. Very often, I will speak to someone who is r eplacing an old system and they wonder if two gigab ytes will work for them on the new machine. Doesn't it stand to reason that if you we re able to surf the Web, check your email and run Q uicken on the machine y ou are replacing, then a new machine, with more than 10 times the memory, shouldn't have a problem handling those same tasks? T oday, the tasks haven't changed. It's still email, the W eb and maybe some critical program such as Q uicken, but whenever I hear people pondering whether two gigabytes will do it for them I can't help but hear that little "grampa voice" in the back of my head saying, "back in my day we couldn't afford a gigabyte. We got by with 16 megs and we liked it!" B ack in 1996, I don't think I could have ever imagined being able to get a gigabyte of RAM, let alone pay less than $100 for it. The whole thing makes me wonder what things will be like a decade or so in the future. In 10 years, will we have people wondering if 1 terabyte 1,000 gigabytes will be enough or if maybe they should spring for two? Regardless, I'm sure they will probably still only use their machine for checking e-mail, surfing the W eb and running Quicken.

The volunteers were officially sworn-in by county judges to read Dr. Suess books to groups of children. This is the 13th year the Martin County Library System has held the annual celebration. Some Postal Service loveI can write to my dearest sister who lives in Pennsylvania, walk out to my mailbox located in front of my house here in Florida, and for 46 cents count on my mail person to pick up my letter sometime today and with almost 100 percent assurance it will be put in my sisters mailbox located in front of her house in Pennsylvania within 3 to 5 days. One quarter, two dimes and a penny. Pretty convenient, something I can depend on and not a bad price at all considering what I'm getting for my change. Thank you, USPS.Fishing is for the birdsI read this article and it lit my fire. The fishing here has gone from great to awful in three years. The proof is now in that in Indian River County, 37,000 septic tanks are dumping 10 million gallons of effluent a day and it winds up in the Lagoon. Florida requires 60 percent of the residents to approve moving to sewers and the local residents don't want to pay up. This is everyones problem, since fishing and watersports bring the local economy millions each y ear. Think. Hotels, restaurants, retirement housing, real estate businesses, tackle shops, fishing guides and boat dealers will begin to suffer. A few years from now the tax base will shrink dramatically. Is the Florida DEP asleep? Why do the residents get a choice to cause an environmental and economic disaster? What are the impacted organizations, local newspapers, associations and civic leaders doing? If you wait much longer to address this issue, you will suffer an economic and environmental disaster that will take over a decade to fix. No more teacher rantsA ccording to the National Mining Association the average coal miners wage in 2011 in the United States was $81,200 per year. TeacherSalaryInfo.com states the average teachers salary in St. Lucie County in 2012 is $33,200. Im sure the majority of teachers here would trade a chance to work in the mines even though we may contract a little black lung and the possibility of been as blind as moles to make almost three times the money. As a teacher, Id take twice that just to avoid reading the r ants of a few delusional ignorant people who obviously place no value on our childrens education or the people who go above and beyond (I average $600 plus a year out of my own salary to buy supplies) to provide it. Bring back the arcadesThese were places to meet people and socialize and play the machines, maybe have some lunch. Many of these people do not drive, movies are very expensive and the snacks even more so, or spending money for a trip to a casino by bus. Give us a break and bring back the arcades for all of usUntil its your child The only ban President Obama wanted on guns was on the AR-15's and the AK-47's. There has been nothing said about taking your shotguns your rifles you hunt with or y our pistols. There should be background checks on everybody that wants to buy a gun. These gun shows do not do background checks. Anyone can buy a gun from them and go on a shooting spree. What in Sam Hill has happened to this country? People have gone crazy over guns. They don't give a crap about human life. Look at all the kids that have been murdered. I just bet if all you gun-ho people sent y our little one to school and some nut went there with an assault rifle and killed your child plus hundreds of others, y ou would maybe feel different? What is the NRA doing r unning Washington anyway? All I hear is the NRA this and the NRA that. Why is congress accepting money from them to not pass a bill like getting rid of these assault guns? No, peaceful American gun owners do not threaten others. But there are these crazy nuts out there that kill the children. Dont you peaceful Americans want to stop the killings or do you just close y our eyes because it isn't your child yet!Act like trash, pick up trashR ecently, several articles were written ranting about litter problems. We have many people committing criminal acts within our community. These people rob us, harm us, commit property damage, take advantage of us and give our community a bad name. I think its time to pay it back. The misdemeanor offenders get litter projects along with jail time. They wear a fluorescent T-shirt that states I Love My C ommunity and Im Paying Back. Everyone will see them and this if not a lesson learned for them; at least it will benefit us. The message it speaks is Act like trash then pick up trash. I would much rather see our tax dollars pay for supervision of a program like this that truly benefits us as a whole. More regarding the food stamp programWe applied for food stamps on March 31, after my husband lost his job. His employers bounced payroll checks in January 2013, and he ended up not getting paid for a month because the employer could not meet payroll. My husband was supposed to receive a two-week unemployment check from the State of Florida Unemployment Office. He got his first one-week check in February, not a two-week claim as stated. We got a letter from the Food Stamp office on February 23, stating that we make too much money for being both on unemployment compensation. My husband gets $167 per week and I get $186 per week, which averages less than $5 per hour. We have a reasonable mortgage that increased from $550 per month to $750 per month due to a homeowners insurance increase. We have no cell phones, a small vehicle payment and auto and basic household bills. We can barely meet these basic needs. We do not need cable to survive. We do not eat out, take v acations or spend money on new luxury items. Weve still got an old television and freeze leftovers for tight financial we eks, yet we were denied food stamps. Thank you for not giving us temporary food assistance. Thank goodness we pre-paid our unemployment wages while working legally in Florida while illegal immigrants get food stamps somehow and insurance for their kids.L eave the parks aloneS top taking away all of the public parks. We should have a say in what happens with our tax money.We should revolt against the oil companiesF or years we have been driving around and filling up our tanks and didnt think about gas prices rising. The oil companies are sticking it to us with the high prices. We should have a gas-out day, when we just dont buy gas for the day. We should stick it to them like theyve been sticking it to us. Why cant we do something about it? The middle class cant even survive anymore; never mind the people that have been struggling for a long time now. We should all get together and do something.Code enforcement should do their jobIn answer to the rant about code enforcement and residents not seeing them doing their job; look up and down U.S. 1, they are there making life difficult for small business owners.Slow down, save gasOne way to save gasoline is to slow down. Leave for work a little earlier and enjoy the ride. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com.

MARTIN COUNTY Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce LEADERship Martin County is now accepting applications from candidates and businesses who would like to nominate individuals to be considered for acceptance into this prestigious program which has been running since 1989. Decisionmakers from all professions are invited to apply to be a member of Class 24, which r uns from Fall 2013 through Spr ing 2014. The application process asks potential participants for the three most pressing problems facing Martin C ounty today. Throughout the year, classmates will work together to present possible solutions to solve these issues. Through this experience, the class will visit and learn about the cultural, social, economic, educational and governmental entities that make up the infrastructure of Martin C ounty. At the end of the class, participants will present a challenge and, working together, will devise a solution which can be addressed with their participation with other LEADERship alumni and the community. The success of the program is reflected in the broad base of leaders who have gone through the program and chosen to make a difference.

MARTIN COUNTY Dwight Denny was recently named chairman of the Martin Health System Board of Dir ectors. A native of Pilot Mountain, N.C., Mr. Denny is a graduate of the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hi ll. After graduating college, Mr. Denny was selected for the United States Naval Officers Candidate School. Upon graduation, he served three y ears active duty as a commissioned officer during the V ietnam era, including two y ear afloat as supply officer of USS Cascade. Mr. Denny began his business career at Ryder System, a FORTUNE 500 commercial transportation, logistics and supply-chain management company. Starting as a management trainee, he was promoted through the ranks. He was a member of the companys executive committee and served as president of Ry der Commercial Vehicle Ser vices. In addition to his business r esponsibilities, Mr. Denny has been very involved in industry and civic activities. He was chairman of the national Tr uck Renting and Leasing Association. He served on the Board of Tr ustees of the Florida I nternational University F oundation for nine y ears and was chairman of the Academic Committee. Mr. Denny and his wife, J ean, reside in Palm City. He currently serves on the F inance Committee of First U nited Methodist Church of Stuart. Mr. Denny was first elected to the Martin Health Foundation Board of Directors in 2004 and has continued his service on the Martin Medical Center and Martin H ealth System boards of directors. M artin Health System has a long history of providing exceptional care to residents of Martin and St. Lucie counties, and we are poised to continue building on that tradition, Mr. Denny said. M artin Health has achieved some remarkable accomplishments and I fully anticipate that we will continue to enhance the quality of health care available on the Treasure C oast. Mr. Denny assumes the chairmanship from George F. Lehach, president of Northern Trust Bank in Martin C ounty, who began his tenure in April 2010. Mar tin Health System is a not-for-profit, communitybased health care organization that has served the r egion for more than 70 years. To learn more, visit martinhealth.org. Help yourself reduce investment stress with diversity, planning You probably arent too worried about it, but Apr il is Stress Awareness M onth. Each year, the Health R esource Network sponsors this month to inform people about the dangers of stress and to share successful coping strategies. Obviously, its important to reduce stress in all walks of life including y our investment activities. How can you cut down on the var ious stresses associated with investing? He re are a few possible stress-busters: Know your risk tolerance. If yo u re constantly worrying about the value of your investments, your portfolio may simply be too volatile for y our individual risk tolerance. Conversely, if youre always feeling that your investments will never provide you with the growth y ou need to achieve your long-term goals, you might be investing too conservatively. Know what to expect from your investments. U ncertainty is often a leading cause of stress. So when you purchase investments that are mysterious to you, you shouldnt be surprised if they perform in ways that raise y our stress levels. Never invest in something unless y ou fully understand its characteristics and risk potential. Be prepared for market volatility. Over the long term, the financial markets have trended upward, though their past performance cant guarantee future results. Yet for periods of months, and even years, these same markets can sputter and decline. So when you invest, be aware of this volatility; if yo u re prepared for it, you wont be shocked when it happens, and you should be able to better keep stress at bay. Maintain realistic expectations. If you think y our investments are going to earn a very high rate of r eturn, year after year, you are more than likely going to be disappointed and you could easily get stressed out. Youre much better off, from a stress standpoint, not to expect eye-popping r esults. Diversify your portfolio. If y ou were only to own one asset class, such as growth stocks, and that particular segment took a big hit during a market drop, your whole portfolio could suffer, and it could take years to recover causing you no end of stress. B ut if you spread your investment dollars among a r ange of vehicles stocks, bonds, government securities and so on your portfolio has a better chance of w eathering the ups and downs of the market. Keep in mind, though, that while diversification may help you r educe the effects of volatility, it cant prevent losses or guarantee profits. Think long term. If you only measure your investment success by short-term r esults, you can feel frustrated and stressed. But when y ou stop to consider your objectives, you may find that the most important ones, such as a comfortable r etirement, are all long-term in nature. Consequently, it makes more sense to measure the progress youre making with your investments in periods of years, or even decades, rather than days or months. Instead of fretting over your monthly investment statements, compare where you are today versus where you were 10 or 15 years ago. The results may w ell surprise and help destress you. Str ess Awareness Month will come and go. But by making the right moves, you can help take some of the stress out of investing for a long time to come.

With the things that have been evolving with our earth, Earth Day is becoming more and more of an important event in our society. Earth Day is a day we can look around and see all the wonders that nature has bestowed on us. It is also a great time to think about how we can protect and beautify our environment. This task can be as simple as planting a single tree to beautify our yard, possibly planting a colorful garden for all to enjoy on your property or even donating your time to a local garden club to help beautify an area of your city or town. W ith the growing needs of our fragile environment, now more then ever, 2013 will be an important year to do everything we can to both beautify and balance our environment. The idea of Earth Day was initiated in 1962 as a way to get people aware of what is going on in our environment. It all started with President Kennedy in 1963 when he took a fiveday conservation tour of our nation. The first official Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. Since then, Earth Day has blossomed into a national celebration where people initiate ideas that can help make our envir onment more eye-appealing and a better place to live. W ith all the hype on how we are depleting our C ypress forests by the use of Cypress mulch, there are many other natural alternatives we can use that are both functional and also will save our natural r esources. One thing we can use that we all have plenty of is natural grass clippings. Thats right, grass clippings can make an excellent mulching material that you can use on almost all your plants and flowers. You do need to be sure, however, that your turf has not been r ecently treated with any herbicides. The herbicides may damage some of your tender plants. P lace the clippings around your plants in layers. Make each of your layers thin and not too thick, as the mulch will produce a smell. Apply the next thin layer after the initial layer has been allowed to dry out. As the clippings decompose, they will produce a fertilizing effect on your plants. The clippings tend to add nutrients back to the soil as they decay and work their way into the dirt. Another great natural mulching material is pine needles. This material is not suitable for all plants, but is great for the majority of plants we use in this part of Florida. Y ou can use pine clippings on any plants that are acid loving. This list can include ixoria, hibiscus, bottlebrush, azalea, gardenia, junipers, and banana trees along with many other plants that r equire a high-acid content in the soil. N ot only do many of these natural remedies save resources, they also save you money. Doing large areas of your yard with commercial products can cost a fortune. With the money you save on mulching materials, you will be able to purchase lots more colorful flowers! Ma ny of your favorite plants that you have in y our yard can be easily propagated into new plants without the need to keep buying new plants. Ro ses are a great example of this. In the spring, you can choose cuttings that are healthy and green and they will make good candidates for cuttings. U sing a sharp knife, cut off the soft tip of the cane and then cut it into fourto five-inch pieces. Each piece should have at least two nodes and some leaves. Strip off the bottom leaves to expose a node, and then plant the cutting in moist soil and keep it in bright shade and high humidity. Y ou can use containers covered with plastic bags, or set them in the ground in the shade and cover them with plastic jugs. E ither method should work fine. T ake several cuttings to be sure you have success with at least several. You are now on your way to propagating your own rose garden!

MARTIN COUNTY Per formers that stretch the boundaries of their musical genres will share the stage this week at the Lyr ic Theatre. F or one performance only, rock and roll legend E dgar Winter will take to the Lyric Stage for a live performance not to be missed at 8 p.m. on April 26. He demonstrated his unique style and ability to cross musical genres when he released his album They Only Come O ut at Night in 1973. Fr om that album came the No. 1 hit Frankenstein and the popular song Free Ride. The album itself peaked at No 3 on the Billboard H ot 200 and stayed on the charts for 80 weeks. It w ent on to become certified gold in April 1973 and double platinum in 1986. It was during the Fr ankenstein that he became the first artist to feature a synthesizer as the main instrument, which changed the genre and opened up a whole new world of possibilities with experimentation and sound. Mr. Winter actually invented the keyboard body strap he uses on stage, which allows him to move around more during performances. Then, on April 28, the Grammy-award winning banjo player Alison Bro wn and her Quartet are performing, their appearance on the Lyric stage. The quartet features a banjo, piano, bass and drums and offers up a sound that blends jazz, bluegrass, Latin and folk music. E dgar Winter will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 2 6, at the Lyric Theatre, located at 59 S.W. F lagler Ave., in Stuart. The Alison Brown Quartet will perform at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 28. F or more information on either show,call (772) 286-7827 or go online to www.lyrictheatre.com. On Saturday, April 27, the YMCA of the Treasure Coast is celebrating YMCAs Healthy K ids Day with a free community event that encourages kids on the Treasure Coast to get moving and learning, and families living healthier. H ealthy Kids Day, the Ys national initiative to improve families health and wellbeing, takes place at 1,900 Ys and kick-starts healthier behaviors now and throughout the summer, a critical out-of-school time for childrens health. H ealthy Kids Day will take place at two Treasure Coast locations: the Stuart branch on Monterey Road and the YMCA Program Center on B ayshore Boulevard in Port S t. Lucie. The events will be held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and will feature fun and active play activities, such as dance demonstrations, bounce houses, arts and crafts and many local kidr elated informational vendors. M any children do not get the daily recommended hours of physical activity and r eading, and daily amounts of healthy foods in the United S tates. According to the latest findings of the YMCAs Family H ealth Snapshot a survey of parents that gauges their childrens activity levels during the school year only 19 percent of children get 60 minutes of physical activity, only 17 percent read books for fun, and only 12 percent eat at least eight fruits and vegetables daily. A t the YMCA of the Treasure Coast we know parents struggle to keep their kids physically and intellectually active every day. We want to help ensure fewer kids are at r isk of childhood obesity and more kids excel in school, said Elisha Stoecklin, senior program director for the YMCA of the Treasure Coast. YMCAs Healthy Kids Day will get kids moving and learning while also helping families get a jump on creating a healthier summer, and ultimately a healthier future. R esearch shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. On April 27, YMCAs H ealthy Kids Day will help parents begin thinking early about what their kids need in order to grow and achieve all summer long. YMCAs Healthy Kids Day is supported locally by Seacoast N ational Bank.

Jensen Beach Blvd., in Off shore, it was permit and more permit, enough so that no one cared about the Dolphin or anything else. I know the Dolphin were happy. Permit at the Sand Pile, and from there to the B oils, which is what all those boats were doing. Anglers were moving slowly north from the inlet in 40 feet of depth, watching for the gold flashes. Once located, it was pretty simple. Crab on a jig head casting in their direction and hang on. The first problem was finding crabs or big shrimp, and the second problem was the sharks. Both were a big problem. If you were going to put one in the boat, you had to be fast and use a big piece of equipment. It was not the time for a knife in the gun fight. When that fish eats your bait you need to muscle that fish to the boat and into the box, or it will be a snack for the man in gray. Right now there is plenty of Cobia in the mix, so the Dolphin can wait. Now, there are lots of boats on these fish, but it is a big ocean, so give everybody lots of room and time for everyone to practice their best manners. Dolphins were in 130 feet with a few Sails and plenty of small Kings. Yes, it was a good week for the off-shore anglers. There are still bigger B lues in the surf for that early angler. Eating cut baits, these fish are there most of the day, but the numbers are early. P ompano at the Tiger S hores access were in and out, but when they are in, they are there in good numbers, so theres no special time. You just have to be there. S ummer has arrived and the Snook have made a good show at the surfs edge. Bombers plugs, Krystal minnows and DOA B ait Buster are all working w ell. Get your feet wet, cast in the trough for bright silver, slot size, real nice fish. P lenty of Whiting, and theres all good size, so do not forget the ice. It s a beautiful blue surf. F inally summer is here, and any day I know the Tarpon will show. River anglers are all talking about the St. Lucie River, north fork and south fork having big Snook. T emperatures are perfect, with the deep water and plenty of baits. Trolling is the key, mid channel, big B ombers and Rat-l-traps just as the sun sets gets lots of big fish. Good week for the Snook anglers, with plenty of shorts in the flats and plenty of fish well over the slot at the bridges. Low light was preferred. S till plenty of Blues, Macs and Jacks to keep busy, but slot Trout have been a hard find with all the wind. Look for the flat water, and that is where the bait is and where the fish are. Be quick, because the wind is about to change directions and y ou will be looking again for that flat water. Already the third week in April and we still have March wind.
