MARTIN COUNTY The Guardian Angels, an organization fairly well known on the Treasure C oast for their volunteer team of citizen crimefighters, is expanding their territory. Long recognized in 200 U.S. cities and 14 countries around the world, the Guardian Angels have been protecting the Treasure Coast since 2004 and are expanding their watchful eye farther into Ma r tin County. Thirty-four years ago it started with a man saddened by the crime-riddled deterioration of his beloved Bronx neighborhood. He decided to take matters into his own hands and his attempts at deterring crime became a nation-wide endeavor. Closer to home in 1989, S teve Horton, now chapter leader for the Treasure Coast, saw an ad on television for the G uardian Angels and immediately knew it was what he was meant to do. MARTIN COUNTY Not every homeowner has a spare $5,000 or $10,000 to drop on new energy efficient items for their home when they're tired of paying exorbitant energy bills or their air conditioner gives up the ghost. That's why the Solar Energy and Loan Fund, part of the Treasure Co ast Regional Planning Council, is here to help. It 's a new way to save energy and money in a way that is accessible to most anyone. The nonprofit organization offers low interest r ate loans for homeowners interested in financing for energy-saving improvements, including lowto-moderate income residents. Local businesses and homeowners can apply for a loan, then an energy audit is conducted to determine what home energy improvements and cost-effective renewable energy alternatives will offer the best return on investment. Once a list is compiled of products like air conditioners, solar hot water heaters and insulation, SELF helps their clients choose from a list of recommended contractors and then goes one step further by managing the installation process. "I t' s a headache we take off your plate," said Bill McConaghy, CleanW oes of Lake Okeechobee can easily harm the lagoonTREASURE COAST Dolphins are dying, oysters are disappearing and entire underwater ecosystems are disintegrating and Indian Riverkeeper Marty B aum just can't take it anymore. He's d edicated himself to a mission of protecting, restoring and advocating for the waters of the I ndian River Lagoon and it breaks his heart to see it deteriorating. F or 20 years, ever since the Environmental Protection Agency put standards in place dictating where the runoff from Lake Okeechobee could be routed, the 156mile Indian River Lagoon has been suffering. T wo billion gallons of discharges a day from the lake include pollutants like fertilizer, waste, and other chemicals and are being diverted from their natural southern flow directly into the Indian River Lagoon. Local marine life is suffering the consequences. B lack muck lines the riverbeds, detrimental algae is taking over, vital sea grasses are vanishing, and a delicate ecosystem that r elies on the complete health of the waterways is fading, a significant problem for the most diverse ecosystem in North America. The upper lagoon is dying. The entire ecosystem is collapsing," said Mr. Baum, a local historian and passionate lagoon advocate. He blames the tragedy almost entirely on politicians and their propensity to put the desires of big business like the sugar industry above the health and needs of the people. Mr. Baum looks at campaign contributions and voting records and says the verdict is clear. They're not protecting people, they're protecting polluters," Mr. B aum said. F lorida's government has also taken away the people's ability to do anything about righting the situation, according to Mr. Baum. He cited several instances where elected officials put remedying 776010 SLC Lic.# 16373 € MC Lic.#8P02863€ 772-871-5702 € www.popcornremoval.comOccupied Homes Our Speciality POPCORN CEILINGSRemoved,Replaced with Knock DownJOSEPH STEVENS AND SONSLicensed,Bonded & Insured € All Major Credit Cards AcceptedJMJ Guaranteed Work Since 1970Thanks To God Who Created Us!

From light bulbs to paint, fertilizers to pool chemicals, the HazMobile F acebook page provides disposal reminders for these common household items that should not end up in your trash can for r egular waste pickup, and also features possible DIY and reuse projects for some of these items. projects like storm treatment areas on hold for decades in order to benefit large corporations and agriculture. Fo r Mr. Baum, whose family has lived in the area since the late 1800s, there's nothing more devastating than watching his beloved lagoon suffer while he is forced to stand by and watch because the government has made taking action nearly impossible. "W e are essentially stuck," Mr. Baum said. An idea made more saddening by the thought that there's so much to be done to re-infuse the lagoon with life and that future generations might not have much of a lagoon left to enjoy. The problem is the elected officials who r efuse to represent us," Mr. Baum said. His best advice is to pick up a pen, pick up a phone, and bombard those officials, starting at local levels, with demands to make the Indian River Lagoon a priority or be ousted from office come the next election. There is great power in numbers, according to Mr. Baum. He believes that the more collective voices there are, the greater the pressure on our political leaders to r epresent U.S. will be and the better the chance that his beloved lagoon will receive the chance it deserves to survive and thrive.

No w, almost four years later, a new roof, aircondition system and paint job keep customers comfortable while they browse through more than 70 vendor booths. The vendors rent a space, and then set their own prices," Mr. Martinez said. "P eople pay at one location, and we keep track of it at the counter. Some of the vendors have been with us since we opened." The couple bring more than 20 years' of experience to the business, and purchase the furniture they sell in the downstairs part of the building from estate sales.

"I want to make a difference it's just in my blood. This was an opportunity to do that in a phenomenal way," Mr. Horton said. C ommercial cleaner by day, Mr. Horton spends his spare time with a group of eight other individuals patrolling neighborhoods and intimidating wouldbe criminals in order to r educe crime. "W e' re here to help the community," Mr. Horton said. They do so with intensive training, by developing a pre-determined course of action, and working hand in hand with local law enforcement, who appreciate their contribution. Their goal is to be present in communities prone to violence and crime to ease the minds of peaceful r esidents and encourage shady characters to stay away. "W e' re a fantastic deterr ent," Mr. Horton said. "We're masters of intimidation." The humanitarian crime fighters capped with their signature red berets are not about violence or vigilantism, but about making a difference and being prepared. They strive to be the eyes and ears of local law enforcement and have never had to resort to using physical force during incidents on the Treasure Coast. What we do works," Mr. Ho rt on said. "We stop a lot of crime before it happens." Their main goal is prevention, knowing that their mere presence helps keep unlawful activity at bay, so they teach neighborhoods how to run watch programs and patrol questionable areas. B ut they are also active participants, helping locate missing teens last fall and striving to find a man who attempted to abduct a woman in Stuart this summer. Mr. Horton said the G uardian Angels are always open to new r ecruits, men and women, who want to make a difference in their neighborhoods and give local residents the peace of mind they deserve.

It 's a service designed for families and individuals who want to invest in their home and reduce energy usage but don't have the funds for all of the initial expenses. There's an effort to serve the under-served," Mr. McConag hy said. "We're supposed to help the community; that's what the mission is." In addition to helping loan recipients procure big ticket items like windows and solar panels, SELF also helps with the little things that can make a big difference like weatherization and energy efficient lighting and are saving their clients an average of 20 percent on their energy bills. The organization has helped one resident save much more on his energy bill. A retired veteran was spending around $300 a month before SELF helped him acquire a new energy efficient air conditioner, insulation and weatherization and his last monthly FPL payment was reduced to $180. Next month's should be even lower now that the solar hot water heater has been installed. Mr. McConaghy loves being able to provide that peace of mind and assistance to the community that he also calls home. In the two years since the organization's inception, more than $2 million has been loaned to recipients on the Treasure Coast and just under $70,000 in Martin County since February. SELF has also teamed up with the City of Stuart to provide free energy audits to a limited number of city r esidents interested in r educing their energy consumption and lowering their energy bills. All Stuart homeowners have to do is call. "M ore people should take advantage of this service," Mr. McConaghy said.

I'v e noticed this phenomenon while instructing new computer users: A lost look will come over many new users when asked to click an object because they can't find it. Usually, I will hear "I don't have that," a short pause, and then the inevitable "Oh! Here it is!" So what's going on here? Why are many new computer users unable to find objects, links, menus and shortcuts that are present on any given system, even when the items in question are r ight there on the screen? The answer is where people's eyes tend to go when a window opens. M ost of the time, the users' eyes are hovering around a 4inch circle in the center of the screen. If they don't see what they are looking for there, the r esponse is usually "I don't have that." Then (after realizing that maybe they should have whatever it is they can't find), they will broaden the search a bit, move their eyes around and locate what they were missing. If y ou are having trouble finding things on your desktop, pay attention to where your eyes go when a window pops open. If you see that you tend to focus your view to a small area in the center of the window, try shifting your view to the top left of the screen and work y our way to the lower right through the center of the window. This will usually allow you to see what's what in any given window in the order of importance. By the time you get to the lower right portion of the window, you will typically have enough information to complete whatever it is you are trying to do. Ha ve I lost you? Let's look at it another way. When someone hands you a piece of paper or you open a page in a book, where do y our eyes go? W ell, they certainly don't hover around the center of the page (or at least they shouldn't). In W estern civilization, we begin reading from the top left and work our way to the lower right. If we were to just focus on the center of the page, we would end up just r eading a small chunk of what's written and miss the beginning and end. Without thinking, we know to start at the top left of the page and, working from left to right, line by line, move our way down the page. We need to develop the same habit when we are using the computer because the same rules tend to apply. S tarting in the middle of the screen and then wandering around with our eyes will leave us feeling lost and out of control, and we will most certainly miss something. I nstead, try this: Every time a window opens, start at the top left corner of the window and, moving from left to right and then slowly down the screen, you will find that most windows have been constructed in a logical order. When we look at the top left corner of any given window, we will usually see an icon representing whatever program is running, followed by the title bar. These are good things to know: the name (and icon) of the program running and its title. The next line down that we may encounter is a line of pull-down menus. The pulldown menus are where we can find all the controls and commands that are available within that particular window grouped again, in logical sections. All of the filing-related commands are grouped under file, all the editing commands are grouped under edit and so on, with the final pull-down menu usually being help. They arranged it in this way so that if people don't find what they are looking for by going through each menu from left to right, they can look in the help menu as a last resort. How ever, all programs are different; you won't see all of the items listed above in every window. The point I'm trying illustrate is to start from the top left, and usually you can find whatever it is you are looking for.

Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Stop racial profilingTo t he person who wrote the rant regarding "Check Alien S tatus," your bigotry is showing through loud and clear. I am familiar with the landscape company that does our community and many others in the area, and they have a strict requirement that all workers must show proof of U.S. citizenship or have a green card allowing them legal status to live and work in the U.S. Just because the workers look H ispanic does not mean they are illegal; only that you are assuming them to be illegal because of their appearance. We very much need these workers who do such a great job and work very hard in the harshest of conditions to earn a meager wage. I appreciate these workers and many of my neighbors feel the same way. So quit the racial profiling a nd check your facts before you make another dumb statement.Please get out of the left hand laneIt is so disturbing, when trying to pass a slower vehicle that I encounter daily on all of our local roads that 60 percent of the vehicles here in the county drive in the left hand lane. Why? I've been trying to figure out why for three y ears. Could it be they all just moved here from England? No way. On June 14, Gov. Rick Scott signed wide-ranging highway safety bills that includes a provision designed to force slower drivers out of the left-hand lane. The bill also includes a provision that states that drivers cannot drive in the left-hand lane 10 miles or slower than the posted speed. A driver who violates the provision could get a $60 ticket.Congratulations, welfare peopleH ey welfare people or poverty people, congratulations on making Fort pierce the poverty capitol of Florida. You and all the young lives you produce have made the common tax payer very proud. Just hope you can keep them off the streets, and not make drug dealers out of them. Oh and remember to reinforce their schooling that they r eceive from the public schools. Oh, wait, let me redefine that word; I meant public baby-sitting agency. It's amazing how people want everything just handed to them. Hopefully your kids will stay in school and not be a burden to society. Oh, and while I'm at it, perhaps you might want to use your glorious food stamp money to buy healthy foods. Bo y, that'd be a change.Where is the money going?Locally, there is a practice where the girls that work so hard cleaning the rooms and never received the tips that the customers leave them. They go to another employer before the girls begin their job the next day. Who knows where is the final recipient of this money? Or if it is divided for both the recipient and the collector. It would be a good idea to know what is going on in favor of the employees that are working so hard to help their families.Public education misconceptionsI am a public school teacher who is continuously amazed at the outrageous comments in the rants and ra ves. In the rant "A laughing matter," the writer believes teachers brag about student performance and how things are improving in the classroom. They are surely misinformed. All bragging to the news media is done by county office administrators when it comes to the FCAT standardized test results. Teachers must get administrative approval before they are permitted to make any press r eleases what so ever. That would include improvements in classroom education. T eachers are not free to teach as they see fit. Most subject areas are given pacing guides in our local school district that dictate what and to what degree topics are to be covered and for how long. If the students do not master a concept there is no additional time given to re-teach the concepts, teachers must keep pace with the district pacing guidelines or risk poor evaluation scores. Teachers do not set the number of days in a school year nor do they determine the number of hours in a class period or school day. T eachers in effect have little to no say in the day to day operations of the school or district calendars. M iddle schools classes have been shortened by five minutes per class to allow for a 30 minute EPIC period at the end of each school day. During the EPIC period students either read for 30 minutes in their EPIC class or theoretically are able to receive remediation from one of their other teachers in another classroom while the that teacher is still with their EPIC class. This all came about by a District level administrative decision. A small group of teachers from each middle school were sent to a four day inservice training in Professional Learning Communities. This in-service training was much like an Infomercial on TV All of the PLC shareholders were pitching the benefits of the program with the hopes of signing on another school district to reap their profits. Unfortunately our administration signed us up even with the knowledge that we could not implement the PLC program without disregarding the current state and district curriculum and classroom seat time requirements. Teachers have begged school level administrators to discontinue with the program and return the 5 minutes of class time to each class period. The County office administrators will not listen to the teachers or school level administrators. In the rant "Education Failure" the writer expects a teacher to teach Patriotism. Students now take Civics in seventh grade as of the 2012-13 school year. In their civics class they learn about the three branches of the F ederal Government and how they work. In eighth grade students take American History and learn the history of our country from the first inhabitants who came to America 12,000 years ago up to the present day. That is a lot of history for an eighth grader to take in within a 180 day school year. Patriotism is something that comes from the home and family not from a classroom teacher. The reality is Public education is a reflection of our curr ent society. Those children who come from homes that v alue and promote education have the opportunity to r eceive a solid education. Those children who come from homes that do not value and promote education miss out on their education unless they are self-driven to achieve. T eacher can only attempt to motivate their students to learn and must count on their parents or extended family to be motivational forces in their lives as well. Those who have a problem with the current state of education need to volunteer in their local schools and be a part of the solution instead of hurling criticisms. When they do they will see what it's like being a public school teacher and then they can address the woes of public education with those who are truly in charge, school superintendents and their county office administrators and state and federal politicians. What's good for the gooseR ecently there have been a lot of comments that Christian and/or Judeo prayer should not be allowed at governmental meetings, etc. In case you don't know, if anyone visits a Muslim country, they would have to listen to a Muslim opening a prayer meeting. Or if you went to a H indu Country, you would have to listen to their prayers because you are in their country. And in that other country, if you were to fight over this kind of thing, demanding to bring other faith and religions into the picture for prayer, you would go to jail for not abiding by their faith and/or religious ways. Here in America, everyone is welcomed; however we are still considered a Christian/Judeo nation, as is reminded by our laws, our money, the patriotic songs we sing, etc. and others should sit down and respect and tolerate that or, in some cases, go back to their own country.End the stimulusThe Federal Reserve is doing us an enormous disservice by co ntinuing its so-called stimulus spending. Whatever it's called, it is a fraud. They are running their printing presses because they have no real money. S mart money people have been warned and they are adjusting their portfolios. But millions of every-day Americans are going to be left holding the bag, a totally empty bag. W ashington insiders do not care a fig aboutus. Got something to say?

IRSC selected for Achieving the Dream programS ignifying a strong commitment to student success and college completion, I ndian River State College is one of only 13 institutions nationwide and the only Florida college selected for the A chieving the Dream program, the nation's most comprehensive non-governmental network for student success in higher education history. IRSC will immediately begin the challenging work of identifying and implementing strategies for increasing student retention, persistence and graduation rates. "I ndian River State College is honored to participate in the national priority of closing achievement gaps and increasing success for every student. Through A chieving the Dream, we will build upon our track record of creating a college environment that helps students achieve and graduate," said Dr. Edwin R. Massey, IRSC president. "Twenty-first century jobs require higher level skills than ever, and it's vitally important that students are fully equipped with the knowledge and skills they need for career success. H elping students reach their educational goals contributes significantly to their individual career prospects, but the benefits extend further to support the economic strength of our community and nation." After a rigorous application process, IRSC was selected based on the college's commitment to student achievement, innovative approaches to teaching and advanced use of technology. "B ecoming an Achieving the Dream I nstitution takes courage, diligence and an unrelenting institution-wide commitment to student success and equity," said W illiam Trueheart, president and CEO of A chieving the Dream. A national nonprofit organization, A chieving the Dream provides tools, r esources and support to selected colleges. Member colleges are focused on helping students, especially low-income and minority students, complete their education and obtain market-valued credentials. Data is used to evaluate students' progress to degree completion. I ndian River State College is a public comprehensive college serving Florida's R esearch Coast with campuses in Fort Pierce, Okeechobee, Port St. Lucie, Stuart and Vero Beach.F or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.comEarl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Ste wart Toyota in North Palm B each.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park.

If y ou drive an Acura, C adillac, Lexus, Lincoln, or I nfiniti and you're taking your car to the dealer of that same make you drive, you're paying as much as twice as much as you have to for maintenance and repairs. M ost people know that General Motors manufacturers Cadillac as well as Buick, Chevrolet, and GMC trucks. M ost of the models of each of these makes share in the engineering and design. This also holds true for Acura and H onda, Lexus and Toyota, Lincoln and Ford, and Infiniti and Nissan. Some models are almost totally identical under the skin." The manufacturers make their luxury version look fancier and add luxury options and accessories, but the underneath it all, they are mostly the same vehicles. The reason that many people don't know that their I nfiniti is built by Nissan and Lexus is built by Toyota is marketing." The manufacturers don't want you to know that that the Lexus ES you're driving is really a Toyota C amry, "all dolled up" or that the Acura ILX is really a fancy H onda Civic. Volkswagen, Ma z da and Hyundai all made big marketing mistakes when they introduced their luxury models, Phaeton, Amati, and E quus. The VW Phaeton which cost more than $100,000 bombed badly and is no longer sold in the U.S.A. The Mazda Amati was announced in the early 90's but Mazda canceled their plans when they suddenly saw the light." The Hyundai E quus, more than $60,000, is not selling well either and I predict it won't be able to compete in the U.S.A luxury car market either. The reason these three models failed is that Volkswagen, Mazda and Hyundai made the fatal marketing mistake in expecting a luxury car buyer to spend $100,000 plus for a car sold in a V olkswagen dealership or $60,000 plus for one sold in a H yundai dealership. To compete with established luxury brands like Mercedes and BMW, manufacturers must offer buyers a car that they feel confident is not only a luxury car, but perceived by their friends, neighbors, r elatives, and business associates to be a luxury car. When a luxury owner is leaving a fancy restaurant or his country club and gives his ticket to the valet, he doesn't want to be asking for a V olkswagen or Hyundai, albeit the most expensive one. When he brings his car in for service, he wants to mingle with other luxury car o wners with all of the luxury amenities offeredit's like first class Vs. coach. I know Lexus dealers who offer massages and manicures to their service customers. JM Lexus, the world's largest Lexus dealer, has a putting green on their roof for their waiting service customers. L uxury owners expect to pay more for service and luxury car dealers are happy to accommodate them. If yo u' re willing to pay twice as much for an oil change because you can play golf while you wait or have a manicure, that's up to you. B ut you can save a whole lot of money and have technicians that are totally qualified to maintain your luxury car by bringing it to the same manufacturer's dealer for the lower price makeAcura to H onda, Cadillac to Chevrolet, Lexus to Toyota, Lincoln to Fo r d, and Infiniti to Nissan. There is one caveat and that is the manufacturers r equire that you have your factory warranty repairs done by the luxury car dealer. You may also experience some problem with parts availability. Although most parts are the same, there are some parts like a cabin air filter which the dealer may have to buy from the luxury car dealer. My suggestion would be to make an appointment for y our service in advance and tell the Honda dealer what y ou would like done. He then can be sure to already have all the necessary parts on hand when you arrive. You will be shocked at how much money you can save and, measured over the total time y ou own your car, this can amount to thousands of dollars. I know that a lot of luxury car owners will read this and continue to bring their luxury car to the luxury car dealer just like there are diamond jewelry buyers who will pay T iffany's twice as much for the exact same caret, color, and clarity diamond as Co stco sells, when the only tangible difference is the "little blue box." Br and image is a powerful marketing tool.

JEN5OFF Out & about STUART With Mariachi music playing in the background and the walls adorned with cactus plants, sleepy donkeys and sombreros, it's easy to feel as if stepping into El Toro Mexican Food and Cantina is nothing short of stepping into a restaurant in a small town in Mexico. The friendly, attentive staff makes sure that every aspect of the dining experience is covered, from chips and salsa as soon as guests are seated to friendly conversation and offers of scrumptious desserts. The freshly made chips and salsa were an incredible start to our meal. The salsa was full of chopped veggies that gave a crunch to each bite. The salsa wasn't hot, but it had enough heat to make one appreciate their cold beverage. The homemade chips were delicious. I knew that the beginning of our meal was the start of something wondrous. "W e make everything from scratch," said Herberto Martinez, owner. "We use fresh and natural ingredients that really make a difference in the taste of the food. We use family recipes that have been with us for generations. What you're eating is authentic Mexican food." As my companion and I enjoyed the atmosphere, we noticed Mr. Martinez making his way around the r estaurant, stopping to talk to each party, and offering suggestions from the menu. "W e are a family restaur ant. My family works here and we treat our guests like family," Mr. Martinez said. "I want everyone to feel comfortable and I want them to enjoy the experience." And, that's what it was... a dining experience. O ur first course, after the chips and salsa, was a steaming bowl of Toro soup and a plate of chicken wings. The soup was creamy with chicken, corn, beans, with tortillas and cheese on top. The soup was enough for a meal, but I knew I needed to pace myself in order to enjoy the r est of our dinner. The chicken wings were deep fried and covered with a Mexican hot sauce. The sauce had a kick to it that made me reach for my water. It was an enjoyable heat that any wing-lover would appreciate. O ur main course was house favorites, steak and chicken fajitas, and a ground beef chimichanga. The meat, onions and peppers of the fajitas sizzled as they were placed on the table, giving off an incredible aroma. They were served with flour or corn tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, salsa and guacamole. The tender meat had a distinct flavor that placed them as one of my favorite dishes of all time. The deep-fried chimichanga was golden brown and topped with lettuce, tomato and onion. B oth were served with beans and rice and the portions made each dish large enough for two. O ther menus items that caught my eye were the enchiladas, Mexican fish tacos and the popular egg dishes such as huevos r ancheros, which is eggs on tortillas, covered with salsa and served with rice and beans. "W e' ve been here for 14 y ears and we're getting better and better. Business is going great. We want to make sure everyone who walks through the door is happy, no matter what they want to eat," Mr. Martinez said. B ecause of his aim to please, Mr. Martinez has included American fare, such as hamburgers and steak, on the menu. There is also a children's menu that includes tacos, burritos and chicken fingers. As we sat in the restaurant with our appetites satiated, Mr. Martinez brought out dessert. The amazing looking fried ice cream was too good to pass up. The fried tortilla filled with vanilla ice cream, topped with a cinnamon dust and drizzled with chocolate syrup, then topped wih whipped cream and a cherry, was absolutely delicious. When I saw this dessert, I knew pacing myself was a good idea. The sweet treat hit the spot after such a tasty dinner. The dessert is big enough to be shared, especially after enjoying such a great meal. The restaurant has a full bar and serves such specialties as margaritas and homemade sangria. There are several domestic beers available as well as imported favorites from Mexico. The restaurant can host parties and caters. Special occasions, such as Cinco de Ma yo bring out live bands on the spacious patio. El Toro is the perfect spot to relax, take in the atmosphere and enjoy incredible authentic cuisine. El Toro is open seven days a week and has daily lunch and happy hour specials. It is located at 1602 S.E. Federal Highway, in Stuart, next to the bowling alley.

With natural r esources such as fresh water at a premium, conserving these natural resources as much as possible is an absolute necessity. With this in mind, it is imperative to choose plants that are r esistant to draught and r equire less water in order to thrive. In order to create a landscape that is easy to maintain in draught conditions it is important to group like plants together. This will help make the watering of your plants much easier because all the plants in a particular group will have the same needs. F or example, if you want to use annuals or other plants that require more water; place them all together in a grouping. On the other hand, if you have plants that require minimal watering such as Crown of Thorns, Bougainvillea and succulents, try to keep them in another grouping. By organizing your plants in this way, watering will not only be easier, it will be more enjoyable and require less time. One factor that is often ov erlooked when purchasing your plants is the quality of the product. Where you buy your plants is almost as important as what choices you make in plant species. When choosing plants that will withstand extreme elements that Florida often offers, local Mom and Pop plant growers will often offer the best quality plants for the money. In addition, the plants are grown right here in our local area and are well adapted to our local conditions. So the next time you are out and about and you pass by that small local nursery you never pay that attention to, stop by and look around and chances are you will find some great plants that will hold up very well in your local area. In a ddition to designing y our gardens for maximum water efficiency, you should also design your turf area for the same. As I mentioned in earlier columns, you can increase the watering efficiency of y our yard by using strategic methods of decreasing your lawn area. You can create islands that are filled in with decorative stone and decorated with interesting lawn ornaments. Another tip for maximizing water efficiency is to install an irrigation system. A properly configured system will cover all the areas of your yard without wasting water. These systems can be configured to water on the days that are designated for your area without any interaction on your part. In addition, when properly Smart planting now will ease drier days GARDEN NOOKJOE ZELENAK ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20Someone you just met can help you to make the most of a difficult situation, Aries.

Sailfish Splash Waterpark hosts the Special Olympics Swimming Time Trials for the Florida State Championships in Stuart on Saturday, July 13. Sevin Bullwinkle/ staff photographerIn the 100 meter free style for 8-11 year olds Sam McIntosh, 11, of Jensen Beach, placed first with a time of 4:08.75. installed, the system will turn off automatically when it rains so you do not waste any water. When you are dealing with larger trees and shrubs, it is often difficult to get enough water on them to deeply penetrate down to the roots. This is where proper mulching will take effect. A heavy dose of mulch will go a long way in preserving the moisture around your trees and bushes so they will fare better between watering cycles. Although you may be tempted to run out to y our favorite retailer and buy a truckload of cypress mulch, remember that there are natural choices that are both look great and also help preserve our natural resources. If y our plants are of the acid loving variety, you can use natural pine needles as a mulching material. You can also use plain hay to help preserve moisture around your plats. Hay is being used more and more by local communities in the landscaping effects of streets and parks. You can also create your own mulch by using the vacuum feature of your gas or electric powered blower. S imply rake the majority of the leaves in your yard to one location and use the v acuum of your blower to pick up and pulverize the leaves and grass. Use the contents of the vacuum bag around your plants. This is both conservative and much less expensive than buying commercially produced mulches from a store. As you can see, there are many ways to help beat the draught and still keep your plants looking as good as possible. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

STUART Dermatology & MedSpa in Stuart will be offering free skin cancer screenings to the public throughout the Summer. "W e offered free screenings in the month of May in recognition of M elanoma/Skin Cancer D etection Month," said Dr. Elizabeth McKay, Board Ce r tified Dermatologist. "T he response was so ov erwhelming that we r ealized the importance to continue these screenings to our community throughout the summer months. A skin cancer screening is a visual, noninvasive exam that only takes a few minutes, yet it could save a person's life." G lena Maggart, Dermatology Certified Nurse Pr actitioner, explains, "In F lorida, with so much exposure to the sun, every individual should have a baseline screening to find their personal risk level. One person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour. Yet melanoma is often successfully treated, if caught early." F or more information or to make an appointment, call (772) 283-0109 or visit www.mckayderm.com, to learn more about what to e xpect at a screening. HOBE SOUND Recognized as the best racer in her category in the country by the top ski coaches in the U nited States and Canada, 12-year-old Lacie Greenwald and her father Brett Greenwald, a chiropractor and owner of Treasure Coast H ealth and Wellness in Stuart, left their home in Hobe S ound on June 22 to train for two weeks at the Whistler B lackcomb Ski Resort in Whistler, British Columbia, C anada, where the Olympic and Paralympic Alpine Skiing events took place in 2010. Lacie began competing in 2010, when she was 8 years old, winning every year. Lacie's goal is to compete as part of the U.S. Ski Team in the Olympics. At M ichel Pratte Ski C amp, Lacie will be participating in the summer glacier skiing exercises on their toughest race course, using intense ski performance training in preparation for the Eastern Championships in Okemo, Vermont in Febr uary 2014, and the National Championship in Aspen, C olorado in March. Once again Lacie will train with world-class coach M ichel Pratte, former racer in the European Cup and the World Cup and coach of the Canadian National Alpine Women's Team. Mr. Pratte runs PratteSki I nternational, which hosts ski camps. Though only 12 y ears old, at this summer camp Lacie will be training in the adult division for more than five hours daily. Whistler offers every service to ensure the best summer ski camp venue in the world," said Mr. Pratte. "She will train on Blackcomb's most popular glacier under superb weather conditions and majestic views." Lacie must travel for 45 minutes as she ascends the glacier in a chair lift. Then she'll board a bus that will take her to the top of the r acecourse where she will begin her training in Giant S lalom and Slalom courses. R eturn trips to the top will be using a T-bar that will pull Lacie back to the top to in 5 minutes, to start the exercise all over again. Mr. Pratte will have on hand a video crew who will film her skiing so that the coach can provide individual feedback. After two weeks of extreme training on the terr ain at Whistler, Lacie will be able to ski any type of envir onment," says Jeneane W akula, Lacie's mother. In her free time, Lacie is an animal advocate whose passion for plight of shelter animals has culminated in her creation of Animals' Last H ope, a nonprofit that raises funds for shelter animals who need surgery to not only provide them with a better quality of life, but also increase their chances of adoption.

We are always looking for the new driver or hybrid that can help us hit the ball farther and more accurately. While we attend demo days, beating balls until our arms ache looking to find that magical combination of shaft, loft, lie and more, we often overlook the most important club in the bag; the putter. M any golfers will grab a putter off the rack, hit a few putts, and drop it in the bag. I t's strange to think that we use our putter for far more strokes than any other club in the bag, yet it may be the one club in the bag that is the worst fit for our own stroke. M ost putters come too long. If your putter is too long y ou will be unable to get your eyes directly over the ball. The sole of the putter should rest flat on the ground, not with the toe or heel raised. F or some reason the same golfer who will not bat an eye at spending $300 or $400 on a driver, balks at investing that on a good putter. A custom putter that is made to fit your stroke, please y our eye, match your height, y our grip size, and more, is worthy of an investment. You may spend a few hundred dollars, but what you wind up with is a magical stick that can save you strokes and win y ou a few skins. There are a few artisans that make putters this way. Their putters are truly beautiful examples of a craftsmanship and passion that is becoming difficult to find in today's world. M ost of these craftsman customize the head with the colors and stampings of your choice. They offer numerous styles of heads in differing w eights and finishes. They are so good, that they can fit you almost perfectly over the phone using measurements that you do yourself and provide to them. In no particular order, here are a few. Some of these are long-time personal friends whose putters I have tried and fallen in love with. Pe r haps you too will find one that you love. S lighter Golf (360-668-8502 www.slightergolf.com ) is based in Seattle. Tom S lighter's lineup features 16 different heads and 10 different finishes. My favorite look is the Kuro Kaminari, a deep, rich black finish. His S eattle Mud finish has a beautiful patina look that many wait years for their putter to become.

To ease the overcrowding, the HSTC is offering cat and kitten adoptions from July 1331 for just $5. Additionally, the shelter will waive the adoption fees for featured dogs (not all dogs). The normal dog adoption fee is $120; cats, $40. This is a crazy situation," said Frank Valente, HSTC Pr esident and CEO. "It is so hard when we are the only ones taking them all in from B oca Raton to Port St. Lucie." The HSTC serves as Martin C ounty's designated animal care and control facility and as such, must accept every animal that is brought to its shelter. Other animal care organizations have the option of selecting only those animals they wish to take in. "D uring spring through fall we take in an average of 300 cats and 200 dogs a month," said Candice Veach, HSTC Di r ector of Operations. "Last month we received more than 400 cats and in the first eight days in July we've already accepted more than 100 cats. This is the intake on top of the already filled shelter." This intake has resulted in animals having to share cage space. Other animals are housed in crates and airline kennels that line the halls and other areas of the shelter, which only happens during times of overcrowding. "W e tend to see an increase in animals, especially cats and kittens, being brought into HSTC around the summer every year. This is most commonly referred to as kitten season,'" said Ms. Veach. K itten season usually starts in the spring, increases in late spring and early summer, and ends in the fall. A ccording to Ms. Veach, the main reason for animals being surrendered to the shelter is that the owners state they have "too many animals," with the majority of that number being cats and kittens. The number two r eason is that the owners are moving and they can't or don't want to take the pet with them. The HSTC also maintains a foster program for animals with special needs. These pets stay in a foster volunteer's home for two to six w eeks to take advantage of a more focused and less stressful environment. Foster volunteers also are utilized in ov ercrowding situations but in times like this, more fosters are needed. The shelter is looking for loving families to adopt the shelter pets to free up space for another animal to enter into the adoption program," said Ms. Veach. "We hope this deep discount will give an additional incentive to those looking to adopt." Dog and cat adoptions are available at the HSTC shelter, 4100 S.W. Leighton Farm Av e ., in Palm City. Cats also may be adopted at Thrift S tore Central, 2585 S.E. Federal Highway, Stuart, and at Thrift Store North, 1099 N.W. 21st St., Stuart. The shelter's and thrift store's adoption hours during the promotion are Mon. through Sat. from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Wed. from 10 a.m. 7 p.m., and on S un. from 10 a.m. 4 p.m. Each adoption includes sterilization (spay or neuter), an overall wellness check, age-appropriate vaccinations including rabies, first de-worming of hookworms and roundworms, microchip and registration, heartworm test for dogs (six months and older), feline leukemia test for cats, free 30 days of Pet H ealth Inc. pet insurance, a coupon for $5 off Hill's Science Diet pet food and $30 off one HSTC dog obedience class.

Then he discovered golf and soon found his passion in designing and building putters to fit the dreams and desires of his customers. By r on putters can take anywhere from an hour or so to nearly a week, depending on the amount of customization and finish requested. The final product will turn heads and drop putts. E del Golf (512-355-3415 www.edelgolf.com ) is headquartered in Liberty Hill, Te xas. Edel's studies have shown that a high percentage of players don't consistently aim their putters at their target. With that in mind, the company will have you go to a certified fitter before starting y our process. Ev eryone sees differently and head shape dramatically changes your ocular focus. E del gives you six heads as we ll as five hosel designs to choose from. There are 35 different combinations of lines and their placement to optimize your aim. Lastly, they weigh and balance the putter to control your stroke and increase consistency. M achine Putters from Dogleg Right Golf (877-8359652 www.doglegright.com ) is headquartered in Plano, Te xas. These putters were conceived and developed with the goal of providing the ultimate in quality, precision, advanced state-of-the-art design and technologies, and the most creative and beneficial options for user adjustability, customization and personalization. The r esult is the most customizable line of putters anywhere. C ustomers choose from a plethora of options with every putter in the lineup. From material choice of the head itself, to weight adjustability, to platings, coatings, custom grinds and finishes, options in modular hosels, to alignment indicator options, Machine P utters give you the options y ou need to make a truly customized putter. B est of all, if you want to change things around a bit, y ou can change the hosel, or the alignment option, or perhaps the back of the putter adding depth to the head itself.

MARTIN COUNTY The Guardian Angels, an organization fairly well known on the Treasure C oast for their volunteer team of citizen crimefighters, is expanding their territory. Long recognized in 200 U.S. cities and 14 countries around the world, the Guardian Angels have been protecting the Treasure Coast since 2004 and are expanding their watchful eye farther into Mar tin County. Thirty-four years ago it started with a man saddened by the crime-riddled deterioration of his beloved Bronx neighborhood. He decided to take matters into his own hands and his attempts at deterring crime became a nation-wide endeavor. Closer to home in 1989, S teve Horton, now chapter leader for the Treasure Coast, saw an ad on television for the G uardian Angels and immediately knew it was what he was meant to do. MARTIN COUNTY Not every homeowner has a spare $5,000 or $10,000 to drop on new energy efficient items for their home when theyre tired of paying exorbitant energy bills or their air conditioner gives up the ghost. Thats why the Solar Energy and Loan Fund, part of the Treasure Co ast Regional Planning Council, is here to help. It s a new way to save energy and money in a way that is accessible to most anyone. The nonprofit organization offers low interest r ate loans for homeowners interested in financing for energy-saving improvements, including lowto-moderate income residents. Local businesses and homeowners can apply for a loan, then an energy audit is conducted to determine what home energy improvements and cost-effective renewable energy alternatives will offer the best return on investment. Once a list is compiled of products like air conditioners, solar hot water heaters and insulation, SELF helps their clients choose from a list of recommended contractors and then goes one step further by managing the installation process. I t s a headache we take off your plate, said Bill McConaghy, CleanW oes of Lake Okeechobee can easily harm the lagoonTREASURE COAST Dolphins are dying, oysters are disappearing and entire underwater ecosystems are disintegrating and Indian Riverkeeper Marty B aum just cant take it anymore. Hes d edicated himself to a mission of protecting, restoring and advocating for the waters of the I ndian River Lagoon and it breaks his heart to see it deteriorating. F or 20 years, ever since the Environmental Protection Agency put standards in place dictating where the runoff from Lake Okeechobee could be routed, the 156mile Indian River Lagoon has been suffering. T wo billion gallons of discharges a day from the lake include pollutants like fertilizer, waste, and other chemicals and are being diverted from their natural southern flow directly into the Indian River Lagoon. Local marine life is suffering the consequences. B lack muck lines the riverbeds, detrimental algae is taking over, vital sea grasses are vanishing, and a delicate ecosystem that r elies on the complete health of the waterways is fading, a significant problem for the most diverse ecosystem in North America. The upper lagoon is dying. The entire ecosystem is collapsing, said Mr. Baum, a local historian and passionate lagoon advocate. He blames the tragedy almost entirely on politicians and their propensity to put the desires of big business like the sugar industry above the health and needs of the people. Mr. Baum looks at campaign contributions and voting records and says the verdict is clear. Theyre not protecting people, theyre protecting polluters, Mr. B aum said. F loridas government has also taken away the peoples ability to do anything about righting the situation, according to Mr. Baum. He cited several instances where elected officials put remedying SLC Lic.# 16373 MC Lic.#8P02863 772-871-5702 www.popcornremoval.comOccupied Homes Our Speciality POPCORN CEILINGSRemoved,Replaced with Knock DownJOSEPH STEVENS AND SONSLicensed,Bonded & Insured All Major Credit Cards AcceptedJMJ Guaranteed Work Since 1970Thanks To God Who Created Us!

Fo r Mr. Baum, whose family has lived in the area since the late 1800s, theres nothing more devastating than watching his beloved lagoon suffer while he is forced to stand by and watch because the government has made taking action nearly impossible. W e are essentially stuck, Mr. Baum said. An idea made more saddening by the thought that theres so much to be done to re-infuse the lagoon with life and that future generations might not have much of a lagoon left to enjoy. The problem is the elected officials who r efuse to represent us, Mr. Baum said. His best advice is to pick up a pen, pick up a phone, and bombard those officials, starting at local levels, with demands to make the Indian River Lagoon a priority or be ousted from office come the next election. There is great power in numbers, according to Mr. Baum. He believes that the more collective voices there are, the greater the pressure on our political leaders to r epresent U.S. will be and the better the chance that his beloved lagoon will receive the chance it deserves to survive and thrive.

Theres something for everyone here, said Manny Mar tinez, who owns the store with his wife, Barbie. The couple has been there since Nov. 1, 2009, updating the building and adding vendors. Now, almost four years later, a new roof, aircondition system and paint job keep customers comfortable while they browse through more than 70 vendor booths. The vendors rent a space, and then set their own prices, Mr. Martinez said. P eople pay at one location, and we keep track of it at the counter. Some of the vendors have been with us since we opened. The couple bring more than 20 years of experience to the business, and purchase the furniture they sell in the downstairs part of the building from estate sales.

I want to make a difference its just in my blood. This was an opportunity to do that in a phenomenal way, Mr. Horton said. C ommercial cleaner by day, Mr. Horton spends his spare time with a group of eight other individuals patrolling neighborhoods and intimidating wouldbe criminals in order to r educe crime. W e re here to help the community, Mr. Horton said. They do so with intensive training, by developing a pre-determined course of action, and working hand in hand with local law enforcement, who appreciate their contribution. Their goal is to be present in communities prone to violence and crime to ease the minds of peaceful r esidents and encourage shady characters to stay away. W e re a fantastic deterr ent, Mr. Horton said. Were masters of intimidation. The humanitarian crime fighters capped with their signature red berets are not about violence or vigilantism, but about making a difference and being prepared. They strive to be the eyes and ears of local law enforcement and have never had to resort to using physical force during incidents on the Treasure Coast. What we do works, Mr. Ho rt on said. We stop a lot of crime before it happens. Their main goal is prevention, knowing that their mere presence helps keep unlawful activity at bay, so they teach neighborhoods how to run watch programs and patrol questionable areas. B ut they are also active participants, helping locate missing teens last fall and striving to find a man who attempted to abduct a woman in Stuart this summer. Mr. Horton said the G uardian Angels are always open to new r ecruits, men and women, who want to make a difference in their neighborhoods and give local residents the peace of mind they deserve.

It s a service designed for families and individuals who want to invest in their home and reduce energy usage but dont have the funds for all of the initial expenses. Theres an effort to serve the under-served, Mr. McConag hy said. Were supposed to help the community; thats what the mission is. In addition to helping loan recipients procure big ticket items like windows and solar panels, SELF also helps with the little things that can make a big difference like weatherization and energy efficient lighting and are saving their clients an average of 20 percent on their energy bills. The organization has helped one resident save much more on his energy bill. A retired veteran was spending around $300 a month before SELF helped him acquire a new energy efficient air conditioner, insulation and weatherization and his last monthly FPL payment was reduced to $180. Next months should be even lower now that the solar hot water heater has been installed. Mr. McConaghy loves being able to provide that peace of mind and assistance to the community that he also calls home. In the two years since the organizations inception, more than $2 million has been loaned to recipients on the Treasure Coast and just under $70,000 in Martin County since February. SELF has also teamed up with the City of Stuart to provide free energy audits to a limited number of city r esidents interested in r educing their energy consumption and lowering their energy bills. All Stuart homeowners have to do is call. M ore people should take advantage of this service, Mr. McConaghy said.

Iv e noticed this phenomenon while instructing new computer users: A lost look will come over many new users when asked to click an object because they cant find it. Usually, I will hear I dont have that, a short pause, and then the inevitable Oh! Here it is! So whats going on here? Why are many new computer users unable to find objects, links, menus and shortcuts that are present on any given system, even when the items in question are r ight there on the screen? The answer is where peoples eyes tend to go when a window opens. M ost of the time, the users eyes are hovering around a 4inch circle in the center of the screen. If they dont see what they are looking for there, the r esponse is usually I dont have that. Then (after realizing that maybe they should have whatever it is they cant find), they will broaden the search a bit, move their eyes around and locate what they were missing. If you are having trouble finding things on your desktop, pay attention to where your eyes go when a window pops open. If you see that you tend to focus your view to a small area in the center of the window, try shifting your view to the top left of the screen and work y our way to the lower right through the center of the window. This will usually allow you to see whats what in any given window in the order of importance. By the time you get to the lower right portion of the window, you will typically have enough information to complete whatever it is you are trying to do. Ha ve I lost you? Lets look at it another way. When someone hands you a piece of paper or you open a page in a book, where do y our eyes go? W ell, they certainly dont hover around the center of the page (or at least they shouldnt). In W estern civilization, we begin reading from the top left and work our way to the lower right. If we were to just focus on the center of the page, we would end up just r eading a small chunk of whats written and miss the beginning and end. Without thinking, we know to start at the top left of the page and, working from left to right, line by line, move our way down the page. We need to develop the same habit when we are using the computer because the same rules tend to apply. S tarting in the middle of the screen and then wandering around with our eyes will leave us feeling lost and out of control, and we will most certainly miss something. I nstead, try this: Every time a window opens, start at the top left corner of the window and, moving from left to right and then slowly down the screen, you will find that most windows have been constructed in a logical order. When we look at the top left corner of any given window, we will usually see an icon representing whatever program is running, followed by the title bar. These are good things to know: the name (and icon) of the program running and its title. The next line down that we may encounter is a line of pull-down menus. The pulldown menus are where we can find all the controls and commands that are available within that particular window grouped again, in logical sections. All of the filing-related commands are grouped under file, all the editing commands are grouped under edit and so on, with the final pull-down menu usually being help. They arranged it in this way so that if people dont find what they are looking for by going through each menu from left to right, they can look in the help menu as a last resort. How ever, all programs are different; you wont see all of the items listed above in every window. The point Im trying illustrate is to start from the top left, and usually you can find whatever it is you are looking for.

Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Stop racial profilingTo t he person who wrote the rant regarding Check Alien S tatus, your bigotry is showing through loud and clear. I am familiar with the landscape company that does our community and many others in the area, and they have a strict requirement that all workers must show proof of U.S. citizenship or have a green card allowing them legal status to live and work in the U.S. Just because the workers look H ispanic does not mean they are illegal; only that you are assuming them to be illegal because of their appearance. We very much need these workers who do such a great job and work very hard in the harshest of conditions to earn a meager wage. I appreciate these workers and many of my neighbors feel the same way. So quit the racial profiling and check your facts before you make another dumb statement.Please get out of the left hand laneIt is so disturbing, when trying to pass a slower vehicle that I encounter daily on all of our local roads that 60 percent of the vehicles here in the county drive in the left hand lane. Why? Ive been trying to figure out why for three y ears. Could it be they all just moved here from England? No way. On June 14, Gov. Rick Scott signed wide-ranging highway safety bills that includes a provision designed to force slower drivers out of the left-hand lane. The bill also includes a provision that states that drivers cannot drive in the left-hand lane 10 miles or slower than the posted speed. A driver who violates the provision could get a $60 ticket.Congratulations, welfare peopleH ey welfare people or poverty people, congratulations on making Fort pierce the poverty capitol of Florida. You and all the young lives you produce have made the common tax payer very proud. Just hope you can keep them off the streets, and not make drug dealers out of them. Oh and remember to reinforce their schooling that they r eceive from the public schools. Oh, wait, let me redefine that word; I meant public baby-sitting agency. Its amazing how people want everything just handed to them. Hopefully your kids will stay in school and not be a burden to society. Oh, and while Im at it, perhaps you might want to use your glorious food stamp money to buy healthy foods. Bo y, that'd be a change.Where is the money going?Locally, there is a practice where the girls that work so hard cleaning the rooms and never received the tips that the customers leave them. They go to another employer before the girls begin their job the next day. Who knows where is the final recipient of this money? Or if it is divided for both the recipient and the collector. It would be a good idea to know what is going on in favor of the employees that are working so hard to help their families.Public education misconceptionsI am a public school teacher who is continuously amazed at the outrageous comments in the rants and ra ves. In the rant A laughing matter, the writer believes teachers brag about student performance and how things are improving in the classroom. They are surely misinformed. All bragging to the news media is done by county office administrators when it comes to the FCAT standardized test results. Teachers must get administrative approval before they are permitted to make any press r eleases what so ever. That would include improvements in classroom education. T eachers are not free to teach as they see fit. Most subject areas are given pacing guides in our local school district that dictate what and to what degree topics are to be covered and for how long. If the students do not master a concept there is no additional time given to re-teach the concepts, teachers must keep pace with the district pacing guidelines or risk poor evaluation scores. Teachers do not set the number of days in a school year nor do they determine the number of hours in a class period or school day. T eachers in effect have little to no say in the day to day operations of the school or district calendars. M iddle schools classes have been shortened by five minutes per class to allow for a 30 minute EPIC period at the end of each school day. During the EPIC period students either read for 30 minutes in their EPIC class or theoretically are able to receive remediation from one of their other teachers in another classroom while the that teacher is still with their EPIC class. This all came about by a District level administrative decision. A small group of teachers from each middle school were sent to a four day inservice training in Professional Learning Communities. This in-service training was much like an Infomercial on TV All of the PLC shareholders were pitching the benefits of the program with the hopes of signing on another school district to reap their profits. Unfortunately our administration signed us up even with the knowledge that we could not implement the PLC program without disregarding the current state and district curriculum and classroom seat time requirements. Teachers have begged school level administrators to discontinue with the program and return the 5 minutes of class time to each class period. The County office administrators will not listen to the teachers or school level administrators. In the rant Education Failure the writer expects a teacher to teach Patriotism. Students now take Civics in seventh grade as of the 2012-13 school year. In their civics class they learn about the three branches of the F ederal Government and how they work. In eighth grade students take American History and learn the history of our country from the first inhabitants who came to America 12,000 years ago up to the present day. That is a lot of history for an eighth grader to take in within a 180 day school year. Patriotism is something that comes from the home and family not from a classroom teacher. The reality is Public education is a reflection of our curr ent society. Those children who come from homes that v alue and promote education have the opportunity to r eceive a solid education. Those children who come from homes that do not value and promote education miss out on their education unless they are self-driven to achieve. T eacher can only attempt to motivate their students to learn and must count on their parents or extended family to be motivational forces in their lives as well. Those who have a problem with the current state of education need to volunteer in their local schools and be a part of the solution instead of hurling criticisms. When they do they will see what its like being a public school teacher and then they can address the woes of public education with those who are truly in charge, school superintendents and their county office administrators and state and federal politicians. Whats good for the gooseR ecently there have been a lot of comments that Christian and/or Judeo prayer should not be allowed at governmental meetings, etc. In case you dont know, if anyone visits a Muslim country, they would have to listen to a Muslim opening a prayer meeting. Or if you went to a H indu Country, you would have to listen to their prayers because you are in their country. And in that other country, if you were to fight over this kind of thing, demanding to bring other faith and religions into the picture for prayer, you would go to jail for not abiding by their faith and/or religious ways. Here in America, everyone is welcomed; however we are still considered a Christian/Judeo nation, as is reminded by our laws, our money, the patriotic songs we sing, etc. and others should sit down and respect and tolerate that or, in some cases, go back to their own country.End the stimulusThe Federal Reserve is doing us an enormous disservice by continuing its so-called stimulus spending. Whatever its called, it is a fraud. They are running their printing presses because they have no real money. S mart money people have been warned and they are adjusting their portfolios. But millions of every-day Americans are going to be left holding the bag, a totally empty bag. W ashington insiders do not care a fig aboutus. Got something to say?

IRSC will immediately begin the challenging work of identifying and implementing strategies for increasing student retention, persistence and graduation rates. I ndian River State College is honored to participate in the national priority of closing achievement gaps and increasing success for every student. Through A chieving the Dream, we will build upon our track record of creating a college environment that helps students achieve and graduate, said Dr. Edwin R. Massey, IRSC president. Twenty-first century jobs require higher level skills than ever, and its vitally important that students are fully equipped with the knowledge and skills they need for career success. H elping students reach their educational goals contributes significantly to their individual career prospects, but the benefits extend further to support the economic strength of our community and nation. After a rigorous application process, IRSC was selected based on the colleges commitment to student achievement, innovative approaches to teaching and advanced use of technology. B ecoming an Achieving the Dream I nstitution takes courage, diligence and an unrelenting institution-wide commitment to student success and equity, said W illiam Trueheart, president and CEO of A chieving the Dream.

If y ou drive an Acura, C adillac, Lexus, Lincoln, or I nfiniti and youre taking your car to the dealer of that same make you drive, youre paying as much as twice as much as you have to for maintenance and repairs. M ost people know that General Motors manufacturers Cadillac as well as Buick, Chevrolet, and GMC trucks. M ost of the models of each of these makes share in the engineering and design. This also holds true for Acura and H onda, Lexus and Toyota, Lincoln and Ford, and Infiniti and Nissan. Some models are almost totally identical under the skin. The manufacturers make their luxury version look fancier and add luxury options and accessories, but the underneath it all, they are mostly the same vehicles. The reason that many people dont know that their I nfiniti is built by Nissan and Lexus is built by Toyota is marketing. The manufacturers dont want you to know that that the Lexus ES youre driving is really a Toyota C amry, all dolled up or that the Acura ILX is really a fancy H onda Civic. Volkswagen, Maz da and Hyundai all made big marketing mistakes when they introduced their luxury models, Phaeton, Amati, and E quus. The VW Phaeton which cost more than $100,000 bombed badly and is no longer sold in the U.S.A. The Mazda Amati was announced in the early 90s but Mazda canceled their plans when they suddenly saw the light. The Hyundai E quus, more than $60,000, is not selling well either and I predict it wont be able to compete in the U.S.A luxury car market either. The reason these three models failed is that Volkswagen, Mazda and Hyundai made the fatal marketing mistake in expecting a luxury car buyer to spend $100,000 plus for a car sold in a V olkswagen dealership or $60,000 plus for one sold in a H yundai dealership. To compete with established luxury brands like Mercedes and BMW, manufacturers must offer buyers a car that they feel confident is not only a luxury car, but perceived by their friends, neighbors, r elatives, and business associates to be a luxury car. When a luxury owner is leaving a fancy restaurant or his country club and gives his ticket to the valet, he doesnt want to be asking for a V olkswagen or Hyundai, albeit the most expensive one. When he brings his car in for service, he wants to mingle with other luxury car o wners with all of the luxury amenities offeredits like first class Vs. coach. I know Lexus dealers who offer massages and manicures to their service customers. JM Lexus, the worlds largest Lexus dealer, has a putting green on their roof for their waiting service customers. L uxury owners expect to pay more for service and luxury car dealers are happy to accommodate them. If yo u re willing to pay twice as much for an oil change because you can play golf while you wait or have a manicure, thats up to you. B ut you can save a whole lot of money and have technicians that are totally qualified to maintain your luxury car by bringing it to the same manufacturers dealer for the lower price makeAcura to H onda, Cadillac to Chevrolet, Lexus to Toyota, Lincoln to For d, and Infiniti to Nissan. There is one caveat and that is the manufacturers r equire that you have your factory warranty repairs done by the luxury car dealer. You may also experience some problem with parts availability. Although most parts are the same, there are some parts like a cabin air filter which the dealer may have to buy from the luxury car dealer. My suggestion would be to make an appointment for y our service in advance and tell the Honda dealer what y ou would like done. He then can be sure to already have all the necessary parts on hand when you arrive. You will be shocked at how much money you can save and, measured over the total time y ou own your car, this can amount to thousands of dollars. I know that a lot of luxury car owners will read this and continue to bring their luxury car to the luxury car dealer just like there are diamond jewelry buyers who will pay T iffanys twice as much for the exact same caret, color, and clarity diamond as Co stco sells, when the only tangible difference is the little blue box. Br and image is a powerful marketing tool. Dont over pay for service on a luxury car ON CARSEARL STEWART www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, July 19, 2013 Martin County A7 OFFICE LOCATIONS IN PORT ST.

JEN5OFF Out & about STUART With Mariachi music playing in the background and the walls adorned with cactus plants, sleepy donkeys and sombreros, its easy to feel as if stepping into El Toro Mexican Food and Cantina is nothing short of stepping into a restaurant in a small town in Mexico. The friendly, attentive staff makes sure that every aspect of the dining experience is covered, from chips and salsa as soon as guests are seated to friendly conversation and offers of scrumptious desserts. The freshly made chips and salsa were an incredible start to our meal. The salsa was full of chopped veggies that gave a crunch to each bite. The salsa wasnt hot, but it had enough heat to make one appreciate their cold beverage. The homemade chips were delicious. I knew that the beginning of our meal was the start of something wondrous. W e make everything from scratch, said Herberto Martinez, owner. We use fresh and natural ingredients that really make a difference in the taste of the food. We use family recipes that have been with us for generations. What youre eating is authentic Mexican food. As my companion and I enjoyed the atmosphere, we noticed Mr. Martinez making his way around the r estaurant, stopping to talk to each party, and offering suggestions from the menu. W e are a family restaur ant. My family works here and we treat our guests like family, Mr. Martinez said. I want everyone to feel comfortable and I want them to enjoy the experience. And, thats what it was... a dining experience. O ur first course, after the chips and salsa, was a steaming bowl of Toro soup and a plate of chicken wings. The soup was creamy with chicken, corn, beans, with tortillas and cheese on top. The soup was enough for a meal, but I knew I needed to pace myself in order to enjoy the r est of our dinner. The chicken wings were deep fried and covered with a Mexican hot sauce. The sauce had a kick to it that made me reach for my water. It was an enjoyable heat that any wing-lover would appreciate. O ur main course was house favorites, steak and chicken fajitas, and a ground beef chimichanga. The meat, onions and peppers of the fajitas sizzled as they were placed on the table, giving off an incredible aroma. They were served with flour or corn tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, salsa and guacamole. The tender meat had a distinct flavor that placed them as one of my favorite dishes of all time. The deep-fried chimichanga was golden brown and topped with lettuce, tomato and onion. B oth were served with beans and rice and the portions made each dish large enough for two. O ther menus items that caught my eye were the enchiladas, Mexican fish tacos and the popular egg dishes such as huevos r ancheros, which is eggs on tortillas, covered with salsa and served with rice and beans. W e ve been here for 14 y ears and were getting better and better. Business is going great. We want to make sure everyone who walks through the door is happy, no matter what they want to eat, Mr. Martinez said. B ecause of his aim to please, Mr. Martinez has included American fare, such as hamburgers and steak, on the menu. There is also a childrens menu that includes tacos, burritos and chicken fingers. As we sat in the restaurant with our appetites satiated, Mr. Martinez brought out dessert. The amazing looking fried ice cream was too good to pass up. The fried tortilla filled with vanilla ice cream, topped with a cinnamon dust and drizzled with chocolate syrup, then topped wih whipped cream and a cherry, was absolutely delicious. When I saw this dessert, I knew pacing myself was a good idea. The sweet treat hit the spot after such a tasty dinner. The dessert is big enough to be shared, especially after enjoying such a great meal. The restaurant has a full bar and serves such specialties as margaritas and homemade sangria. There are several domestic beers available as well as imported favorites from Mexico. The restaurant can host parties and caters. Special occasions, such as Cinco de Ma yo bring out live bands on the spacious patio. El Toro is the perfect spot to relax, take in the atmosphere and enjoy incredible authentic cuisine. El Toro is open seven days a week and has daily lunch and happy hour specials. It is located at 1602 S.E. Federal Highway, in Stuart, next to the bowling alley.

With natural r esources such as fresh water at a premium, conserving these natural resources as much as possible is an absolute necessity. With this in mind, it is imperative to choose plants that are r esistant to draught and r equire less water in order to thrive. In order to create a landscape that is easy to maintain in draught conditions it is important to group like plants together. This will help make the watering of your plants much easier because all the plants in a particular group will have the same needs. F or example, if you want to use annuals or other plants that require more water; place them all together in a grouping. On the other hand, if you have plants that require minimal watering such as Crown of Thorns, Bougainvillea and succulents, try to keep them in another grouping. By organizing your plants in this way, watering will not only be easier, it will be more enjoyable and require less time. One factor that is often ov erlooked when purchasing your plants is the quality of the product. Where you buy your plants is almost as important as what choices you make in plant species. When choosing plants that will withstand extreme elements that Florida often offers, local Mom and Pop plant growers will often offer the best quality plants for the money. In addition, the plants are grown right here in our local area and are well adapted to our local conditions. So the next time you are out and about and you pass by that small local nursery you never pay that attention to, stop by and look around and chances are you will find some great plants that will hold up very well in your local area. In a ddition to designing y our gardens for maximum water efficiency, you should also design your turf area for the same. As I mentioned in earlier columns, you can increase the watering efficiency of y our yard by using strategic methods of decreasing your lawn area. You can create islands that are filled in with decorative stone and decorated with interesting lawn ornaments. Another tip for maximizing water efficiency is to install an irrigation system. A properly configured system will cover all the areas of your yard without wasting water. These systems can be configured to water on the days that are designated for your area without any interaction on your part. In addition, when properly Smart planting now will ease drier days GARDEN NOOKJOE ZELENAK ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20Someone you just met can help you to make the most of a difficult situation, Aries.

Sailfish Splash Waterpark hosts the Special Olympics Swimming Time Trials for the Florida State Championships in Stuart on Saturday, July 13. Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerIn the 100 meter free style for 8-11 year olds Sam McIntosh, 11, of Jensen Beach, placed first with a time of 4:08.75. installed, the system will turn off automatically when it rains so you do not waste any water. When you are dealing with larger trees and shrubs, it is often difficult to get enough water on them to deeply penetrate down to the roots. This is where proper mulching will take effect. A heavy dose of mulch will go a long way in preserving the moisture around your trees and bushes so they will fare better between watering cycles. Although you may be tempted to run out to y our favorite retailer and buy a truckload of cypress mulch, remember that there are natural choices that are both look great and also help preserve our natural resources. If your plants are of the acid loving variety, you can use natural pine needles as a mulching material. You can also use plain hay to help preserve moisture around your plats. Hay is being used more and more by local communities in the landscaping effects of streets and parks. You can also create your own mulch by using the vacuum feature of your gas or electric powered blower. S imply rake the majority of the leaves in your yard to one location and use the v acuum of your blower to pick up and pulverize the leaves and grass. Use the contents of the vacuum bag around your plants. This is both conservative and much less expensive than buying commercially produced mulches from a store. As you can see, there are many ways to help beat the draught and still keep your plants looking as good as possible. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

STUART Dermatology & MedSpa in Stuart will be offering free skin cancer screenings to the public throughout the Summer. W e offered free screenings in the month of May in recognition of M elanoma/Skin Cancer D etection Month, said Dr. Elizabeth McKay, Board Cer tified Dermatologist. T he response was so ov erwhelming that we r ealized the importance to continue these screenings to our community throughout the summer months. A skin cancer screening is a visual, noninvasive exam that only takes a few minutes, yet it could save a persons life. G lena Maggart, Dermatology Certified Nurse Pr actitioner, explains, In F lorida, with so much exposure to the sun, every individual should have a baseline screening to find their personal risk level. One person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour. Yet melanoma is often successfully treated, if caught early. F or more information or to make an appointment, call (772) 283-0109 or visit www.mckayderm.com, to learn more about what to e xpect at a screening. HOBE SOUND Recognized as the best racer in her category in the country by the top ski coaches in the U nited States and Canada, 12-year-old Lacie Greenwald and her father Brett Greenwald, a chiropractor and owner of Treasure Coast H ealth and Wellness in Stuart, left their home in Hobe S ound on June 22 to train for two weeks at the Whistler B lackcomb Ski Resort in Whistler, British Columbia, C anada, where the Olympic and Paralympic Alpine Skiing events took place in 2010. Lacie began competing in 2010, when she was 8 years old, winning every year. Lacie's goal is to compete as part of the U.S. Ski Team in the Olympics. At Michel Pratte Ski C amp, Lacie will be participating in the summer glacier skiing exercises on their toughest race course, using intense ski performance training in preparation for the Eastern Championships in Okemo, Vermont in Febr uary 2014, and the National Championship in Aspen, C olorado in March. Once again Lacie will train with world-class coach M ichel Pratte, former racer in the European Cup and the World Cup and coach of the Canadian National Alpine Women's Team. Mr. Pratte runs PratteSki I nternational, which hosts ski camps. Though only 12 y ears old, at this summer camp Lacie will be training in the adult division for more than five hours daily. Whistler offers every service to ensure the best summer ski camp venue in the world," said Mr. Pratte. "She will train on Blackcomb's most popular glacier under superb weather conditions and majestic views. Lacie must travel for 45 minutes as she ascends the glacier in a chair lift. Then she'll board a bus that will take her to the top of the r acecourse where she will begin her training in Giant S lalom and Slalom courses. R eturn trips to the top will be using a T-bar that will pull Lacie back to the top to in 5 minutes, to start the exercise all over again. Mr. Pratte will have on hand a video crew who will film her skiing so that the coach can provide individual feedback. After two weeks of extreme training on the terr ain at Whistler, Lacie will be able to ski any type of envir onment, says Jeneane W akula, Lacies mother. In her free time, Lacie is an animal advocate whose passion for plight of shelter animals has culminated in her creation of Animals' Last H ope, a nonprofit that raises funds for shelter animals who need surgery to not only provide them with a better quality of life, but also increase their chances of adoption.

We are always looking for the new driver or hybrid that can help us hit the ball farther and more accurately. While we attend demo days, beating balls until our arms ache looking to find that magical combination of shaft, loft, lie and more, we often overlook the most important club in the bag; the putter. M any golfers will grab a putter off the rack, hit a few putts, and drop it in the bag. I t's strange to think that we use our putter for far more strokes than any other club in the bag, yet it may be the one club in the bag that is the worst fit for our own stroke. M ost putters come too long. If your putter is too long y ou will be unable to get your eyes directly over the ball. The sole of the putter should rest flat on the ground, not with the toe or heel raised. F or some reason the same golfer who will not bat an eye at spending $300 or $400 on a driver, balks at investing that on a good putter. A custom putter that is made to fit your stroke, please y our eye, match your height, y our grip size, and more, is worthy of an investment. You may spend a few hundred dollars, but what you wind up with is a magical stick that can save you strokes and win y ou a few skins. There are a few artisans that make putters this way. Their putters are truly beautiful examples of a craftsmanship and passion that is becoming difficult to find in today's world. M ost of these craftsman customize the head with the colors and stampings of your choice. They offer numerous styles of heads in differing w eights and finishes. They are so good, that they can fit you almost perfectly over the phone using measurements that you do yourself and provide to them. In no particular order, here are a few. Some of these are long-time personal friends whose putters I have tried and fallen in love with. Per haps you too will find one that you love. S lighter Golf (360-668-8502 www.slightergolf.com ) is based in Seattle. Tom S lighter's lineup features 16 different heads and 10 different finishes. My favorite look is the Kuro Kaminari, a deep, rich black finish. His S eattle Mud finish has a beautiful patina look that many wait years for their putter to become. Byr on Design (920-9154320 www.byronputters.com ) is located in Huntington B each, Calif., Byron Morgan wants to help golfers obtain the putter of their dreams.

Its time to invest in the most important club in your bagF or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com Animal adoption discounts to ease overcrowding The Humane Society of the Tr easure Coasts shelter is filled to capacity and the intake of cats and dogs continues to climb. To ease the overcrowding, the HSTC is offering cat and kitten adoptions from July 1331 for just $5. Additionally, the shelter will waive the adoption fees for featured dogs (not all dogs). The normal dog adoption fee is $120; cats, $40. This is a crazy situation, said Frank Valente, HSTC Pr esident and CEO. It is so hard when we are the only ones taking them all in from B oca Raton to Port St. Lucie. The HSTC serves as Martin C ountys designated animal care and control facility and as such, must accept every animal that is brought to its shelter. Other animal care organizations have the option of selecting only those animals they wish to take in. D uring spring through fall we take in an average of 300 cats and 200 dogs a month, said Candice Veach, HSTC Dir ector of Operations. Last month we received more than 400 cats and in the first eight days in July weve already accepted more than 100 cats. This is the intake on top of the already filled shelter. This intake has resulted in animals having to share cage space. Other animals are housed in crates and airline kennels that line the halls and other areas of the shelter, which only happens during times of overcrowding. W e tend to see an increase in animals, especially cats and kittens, being brought into HSTC around the summer every year. This is most commonly referred to as kitten season, said Ms. Veach. K itten season usually starts in the spring, increases in late spring and early summer, and ends in the fall. A ccording to Ms. Veach, the main reason for animals being surrendered to the shelter is that the owners state they have too many animals, with the majority of that number being cats and kittens. The number two r eason is that the owners are moving and they cant or dont want to take the pet with them. The HSTC also maintains a foster program for animals with special needs. These pets stay in a foster volunteers home for two to six w eeks to take advantage of a more focused and less stressful environment. Foster volunteers also are utilized in ov ercrowding situations but in times like this, more fosters are needed. The shelter is looking for loving families to adopt the shelter pets to free up space for another animal to enter into the adoption program, said Ms. Veach. We hope this deep discount will give an additional incentive to those looking to adopt. Dog and cat adoptions are available at the HSTC shelter, 4100 S.W. Leighton Farm Ave ., in Palm City. Cats also may be adopted at Thrift S tore Central, 2585 S.E. Federal Highway, Stuart, and at Thrift Store North, 1099 N.W. 21st St., Stuart. The shelters and thrift stores adoption hours during the promotion are Mon. through Sat. from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Wed. from 10 a.m. 7 p.m., and on S un. from 10 a.m. 4 p.m. Each adoption includes sterilization (spay or neuter), an overall wellness check, age-appropriate vaccinations including rabies, first de-worming of hookworms and roundworms, microchip and registration, heartworm test for dogs (six months and older), feline leukemia test for cats, free 30 days of Pet H ealth Inc. pet insurance, a coupon for $5 off Hills Science Diet pet food and $30 off one HSTC dog obedience class.
