MARTIN COUNTY V ol. 12, No. 9 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Aug. 2, 2013Diver fulfills long-held dream at the end of the tailPORT ST. LUCIE For more than 20 years, Cynthia Lott learned to swim with the fish, get up close and personal with the reefs but there was another life waiting for her under the sea. Ms. Lott is an environmental specialist III for the Department of Envir onmental Protection for the southeast district of Florida and a state of F lorida unit dive safety instructor. B eing under the water, the ins and outs of the oxygen tanks, flippers and underwater safety are no stranger to Ms. Lott. I put individuals through rigorous training and safety training and once a y ear I put them through training for r escue and oxygen administration, she said. I authorize their diving activities for the Department of Environmental Pr otection, make sure they have a good plan for their type of work and that they have everything they need. Dur ing a DEP meeting in Tallahassee, she talked to a fellow dive instructor about what they wanted to do when they retired. I just said to her, Just think! You can become an opera singer! she said. And she was like, No way, I want to be a mermaid! and I said, Get out! Ive always wanted to be a mermaid! It had been a childhood dream of Ms. Lotts. In high school, while Ms. Lott attended school on the West coast of Florida, W eeki Wachee Springs had an essay contest on why that student would want to be a Weeki Wachee mermaid. W eeki W achee holds mermaid camps throughout the year, teaching students and adults how to swim underwater like a mermaid and use compressed air tubes. I was a surfer, I always surfed and I was a surfer until I was 50, Ms. Lott said. I always thought being a mermaid was cool. I didnt win the contest though and my heart was broken. M any years later, she signed up for a camp at Weeki Wachee called Sirens of the Sea. I spent three days there and learned an awful lot and realized it is more difficult having mermaid skills than we have as divers, she said. Youre not w earing a face mask, a scuba tank, w eights, a buoyancy vest or anything yo u re just swimming with a tail. The small breathing hose that most of the mermaids use was the hardest for Ms. Lott to learn to use. I t is like a small hookah hose, she said. You have to open your mouth while under water, insert the hose, spit out the water, turn on the air and then try not to float up to the top. After being a little discouraged after all, she was a state certified diving instructor Ms. Lott learned how to use the breathing tube after three days when most took more than three months to learn.

C aptain Don and an army of dedicated divers and volunteers have cleaned over 300,000 pounds of debris from the lagoon, estuaries, inlets, and near shore reefs of the Tr easure Coast. M uch of the detritus, some a result of hurricanes Fr ancis, Jeanne and Wil ma, has clogged our waterways for years, said Mr. Voss, but out of sight doesnt make it right. The Key to the Town of S ewalls Point, along with a Pr oclamation, was presented by Mayor Tom Br ausch at their regularly scheduled city commission meeting. "Kudos to Captain Don V oss who was recognized for his outstanding contribution to the health of the I ndian River Lagoon, St L ucie River and our ocean r eefs.

U nited Way acts as a backbone for the community by bringing together individuals and businesses to collectively solve key issues, said Jim Vojcsik, executive director of United Way of Martin County. The event includes free breakfast and a free afternoon at Sailfish S plash Waterpark in exchange for half day of volunteerism. The day begins at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast provided by Chick-Fil-A for all pre-registered volunteers at the Martin County Fairgrounds. After breakfast, volunteers will disperse to one of 19 volunteer projects available at 11 nonprofit agencies in Martin County. V olunteer projects can be completed by individuals, groups or families and include everything from putting together compassion kits for the homeless to painting houses to landscaping and vegetation removal. Once projects are completed, all volunteers and their family are invited to a free afternoon of fun at Sailfish Splash W aterpark. B y engaging people to get involved in Day of Caring, were hoping to educate everyone on the health and human service problems local residents face every day, said Mr. Vojcsik. U nited Way of Martin County helps residents with their needs by investing in local programs that focus on one or more of its six priority areas: end hunger, strengthen families, good health for all, solid education, create job opportunities and ensure safety.

I frowned and said, Well anytime you need a mermaid though, Im there! In the meantime, Ms. Lott spends her time swimming with her mermaid tail around the pool and in the ocean. The tail is a little hard to put on and once it is on, there is no walking. I f youve ever tried putting on your skinny jeans after washing them, its that hard, she said. You kind of lie on the dock like a flounder and you sort of flounder and wiggle your way into the tail. Then, you roll over into the water like a seal. Its total fun. Ev ery time the tail goes on, she is able to live out a fantasy. It invigorates her and lets her be as young as she feels. I really hope this inspires someone to go and be a mermaid, she said. They have mermaid camps at W eeki Wachee for little girls and big girls. When youre all done youre a certified mermaid. Its great fun!

Crown Car Care opens fourth locationEarl 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. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com,call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960,FM 95.9 and FM 106.9, which can be streamed at www.SeaviewRadio.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m. (1)Believe the newspaper and TV ads. It never ceases to amaze me how outrageous and unbelievable the car dealers claims are. Just when I think that they cant get any worse, I see one that tops them all. Last month, one dealer was advertising in the newspaper and TV that if you bought one vehicle from him y ou got a second vehicle for free. The facts and fine print would reveal that the first vehicle was a very expensive one with a huge markup of over $6,000 and the second vehicle was only the use of one for two y ears... a lease. My father always said, If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isnt. Astoundingly, the general manager of this dealership had the gall to say on TV, This is not a gimmick! (2)Buy a car on impulse on the first day you start shopping. Can you believe that this is the way most people buy cars? It truly is. There is something about a new car that excites people and appeals to them on an emotional level. People let their feelings short circuit their logical thought processes. Overcome that emotion that tells you that you must drive home that shiny new car right now. Go home and think about it. Talk it over with your spouse and friends. Research the model of car you looked at and the price on the Internet. Always drive the car you chose before you sign any papers. Y ou should take at least a w eek or two in the decision making process before you buy a car. (3)Trade your old car in to the dealer you buy from without shopping its value. M ost people have no idea what their trade-in is worth when they come in to buy a new car. They rely entirely on the appraisal by the selling dealer. The dealer can make it appear that he is giving you a lot of money for your trade by taking some of the high markup on the new car and showing it as part of the appraisal value. Check Kelly B lue Book (kbb.com) and E dmunds.com on the I nternet. Get at least three bids from other dealers of the same make for your trade. Make the purchase of the new car and the sale of y our trade two separate transactions. Remember that y ou do get a sales tax break by trading in your car to the dealer you buy from. (4)Use the dealers financing without checking with y our bank or credit union. S hop for the best price on y our financing just like you shop for the best price on y our trade-in and the best price on new your car. (5)Believe this, This low price is good today only. This is one of the favorite r uses used by car sales people and dealers. In 99 percent of the cases, you can buy that car for the same or an even lower price later. The only time that you cant is when factory incentives expire on a certain date, typically at the end of the month. If that is the claim, demand to see the written factory incentive by the manufacturer. (6)Fall for this, Make me a written offer with a deposit and I will submit it to my manager. This is the standard operating procedure at most car dealerships. This is to get you psychologically engaged in the buying process. Once you have signed a buyers order and written out a check, you will r emain in the dealership for a while and are more likely to buy. The salesman knows that. Insist on getting their best price on the car you have selected. You should never make the first offer. Once you have their price, compare it with at least three other prices from other dealers on the same make and model. (7)Follow this advice, Take this new car home and see how you like it. This is the famous puppy dog technique so named because once you take a puppy dog home overnight, who has the heart to return it the next day? You, your neighbors, and friends will see that shiny new car parked in your driveway. It sure looks good! How can you explain to anybody that you didnt buy it? (8)Agree to this, Ill buy the car if you can get my monthly payments below ON CARSEARL STEWART T odd Harris, owner of Crown Car Care and Crown Collision, has opened a fourth location at 712 S.E. Dixie Highway, at the southeast corner of Dixie Highway and Martin Luther King Boulevard in S tuart. The business retains the prior o wners name, Dougs Auto Repair, but is a division of Crown Car Care. W e felt this was an ideal location for us to expand in because we now already have a shop on Cove Road in Stuart and in Palm City on Bruner Terrace and D eggeller Court. We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to this convenient location in downtown S tuart, Harris commented. Mr. Harris opened his first shop in 2006 in Palm City after spending years in the automobile repair industry. As a young man, Todd worked at a full-service gas station and later worked for several dealerships. Today, the Crown Car Care name signifies quality, honest reliable repairs. Their business philosophy is: From the greeting at our door to the repair or service in our shop, excellence is not an option but a requirement. All of Crown Car Cares technicians are ASE-certified and have more than 20 y ears experience in the automotive r epair and service industry. The business is open Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 8 am to noon. The phone number is (772) 463-7745. A Crown Car Care service center is also located at 4455 S.E. Cove Road in Stuart, phone (772) 283-4707, 3982 S.W. Bruner T errace, Palm City, phone (772) 781-8000.

$___.__ Most of us tend to think in terms of our monthly budgets. We might feel that we can afford a new car as long as it costs us less than $350 per month, but there is a big difference between $350 per month for 36 months and $350 per month for 72 months. I recommend that you finance a car for no more than 42 months, preferably 36. (9)Believe the salesman when he says, You have my word on that. Be absolutely sure that every promise or commitment made to you by y our sales person is in writing and signed by a manager. That salesman may not work there when you have occasion to ask for that fr ee loaner car that he promised you anytime you bring your car in for service. (10)Fall for this, All dealers charge a dealer fee and we cant remove it from the invoice. In fact, all dealers do not charge a dealer fee. I dont. But unfortunately most do charge this gotcha r anging from $495 to $1,000. It is true that Florida law (which should prohibit dealer fees entirely) requires that the dealer fee appear on all invoices. If you charge just one customer a dealer fee, y ou must charge everybody. The state legislators, in their infinite wisdom, decided if a car dealer is going to take advantage of even one buyer, he must take advantage of all of the buyers.never discriminate. But the loophole in this stupid law is for you to demand that the dealer reduce the price of the car by the amount of the dealer fee, making it a wash.

Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerDerna DePamphilis celebrates her 100th birthday with her sister Louise Carnevale, 98, at the Emeritus in Jensen Beach on Saturday, July 27. If there is one basic function that everyone is familiar with and yet shrouded in mystery, I would have to say that would be the pr int command. Again, everybody is familiar with the print command click the print button and your printer spits out a hard copy. But the r eason its shrouded in mystery is there are a ton of options and controls available, most of which no one takes the time to learn, that give the user a lot more control over the printer output than many people are aware they have. Lets take a look at some of these functions and see if we can figure out what some of them are good for and why we would want to use them. U sing the print button in the toolbar of many applications (or the Quick Print option in Word) will do just that quickly send whatever is onscreen to the printer using the default settings. What that means is that the computer has a series of preset settings that it will use by default if you dont tell it to do something different. F or instance, if you have more than one printer set up (perhaps your real printer and maybe a fax program listed as a printer) then the computer will have one printer set up as its default If y ou dont tell it to print to another device then thats the one its going to print to. O ther defaults include paper size, whether or not you want to print in color or grayscale and print quality. Clicking the print button on the tool bar will send the print job to the printer using these default settings. B ut what about if you want to change something? S uppose you want to print to a different printer or maybe y ou want to print using the low quality settings (draft) to save some ink, how can you adjust these settings if the print job sends straight to the printer when you click print? To get to the print menu that gives you full control look for the File pull-down menu at the top left hand corner of whatever program y ou are trying to print from. Now, be aware that not all programs have the File, Edit, V iew pull down menus that weve grown fond of over the years. You may or may not see the file pull-down menu if y ou are running Vista or W indows 7, but that doesnt mean we cant get to where we want to go. If you have a File pulldown menu, click it. You should fine the print command listed and clicking that will pull up the print window. If you dont have the File pulldown then on your keyboard press and hold the CTRL button and then click P. That will open the print command the same as clicking File then Pr int. Now, I know what some of y ou are thinking, Why go through all that business with the File pull-down menu when CTRL + P does the same thing? Well, the reason I try to steer people in the direction of the pull-down menus is simply because there are other commands in there right next to Print that may not be available with the keyboard shortcut. F or instance you may notice a command called Pr int Preview when you click the file pull down menu. Pr int Preview is a great command that saves paper by actually showing you a preview of whats about to come out of the printer should you commit and click print. The preview saves paper by letting you decide what adjustments you want to make before sending the print job to the printer. Now, back to our print command, clicking Print in the File pull-down or pressing CTRL+P will open the print dialogue box and the first thing it will show is what printer its going to send to. This is where you can tell the computer to send to a device other than the default. Clicking the Properties button lets you change things like paper size, quality and color. The properties menu will change from printer to printer but the core is the same. Its the place where fine changes can be made on the printer. Fur ther down the print dialogue box you can tell the computer what pages to print and how many copies and after making any changes here, clicking print will then send the job to the printer with the changes that you selected.

I do commend all of the event organizers for the support of our troops, and agree that we should all have celebrated the birth of country in an overtly patriotic fashion (especially now), yet I do wonder, would it be more patriotic to forgo the expense of the pyrotechnicians, additional police and emergency services, vendors, musicians and fuel for all those who attended? C ould it be patriotic to use the money to perhaps buy cars for underprivileged individuals who cannot get to job interviews because we do not have a reliable public transportation system? P ay the rent or mortgages for struggling families? B uy hurricanepreparedness supply kits for so many of us who will not be able to afford to prepare for a hurricane at all this year?

P ay the water bills for those who will lose water and sewer services this month because health and human services cannot keep up? Bu y families Publix or Winn Dixie gift cards to purchase $100 worth of food? Or how about something really creative? Fifty to 1,000 people in the county to spend and stimulate our local economy?Revise systemI have a son whos incarcerated in Miami. He was sentenced to 27 years. He had no weapons or drugs. It was a racketeering charge. He has filed motions to have his sentence reduced, but theyve done nothing. He doesnt deserve this sentence. But theyve done nothing. Im very disturbed by the system.No kids at the barWhat happened to the state laws on alcohol? Arent they supposed to be watching what goes on at places that serve alcohol? I was at a restaurant and there was a child at the bar. They serve food to children while others drink. Where are the MADD mothers?What are kids learning?One half of public school seniors do not recognize the names of Winston Churchill or Joseph Stalin nor can they locate the half-century in which World War I occurred. What does this tell about the state of the nation's public schools? Regarding felonsY ears ago, lots of people died just to vote. Now they are letting felons vote. Why cant felons work? Give them a chance.A laughing matterIt makes us laugh when public school teachers brag about pupil performance and how things are improving in our classr ooms. C ompared with other nations around the globe, the U.S. comes in almost last in the number of hours our children spend in the classroom. It shows, because they also score almost last in math, science and reading.Check alien statusHow many contracted workers are legal aliens? Seems like most of the contractors hire illegal aliens. Look at those who landscape.Intelligence levelsI would like to advise that since the Save the Chimps sanctuary was established in St. Lucie County, the countys intelligence level has gone up.Backward FCAT systemThis is about the FCAT scores. The schools with the highest average of children living under the poverty level have the lowest scores. The state gives money to schools that get higher scores on the FCATs, instead of the schools that get lower schools. How can we help these children? There are a lot of children whose parents dont speak English or are from a broken home. They need more help. This is a backwards system.Code enforcement What about outside storage in residential areas? There are old cars and boats and furniture all over the place. The people at code enforcement should get out of their office and ride around the county, and not just wait for complaints. Those who complain are threatened, so they dont complain. They could just sit in their air-conditioned cars and pick an area of the county and look at whats going on. The rich get richerWe all went out and bought more fuel-efficient cars and are driving less, but look at the price of oil. W all Street has to make money on everything, especially on the backs of the little guys, that they sent jobs overseas and everything else, because the labor over there is so cheap. I walk from now on. Im 81 years old, but Id walk two miles to the store, rather than use my car and give them any more money. I am tired of it. I think you people ought to wake up and do something.Florida as apartheid?When Jesse Jackson has an inclination to treat Florida as apartheid, perhaps he should look into a bit of Florida's history: F lorida attracted numerous Africans and AfricanAmericans from the southern British colonies in North America, who sought freedom from slavery. Once in Florida, the Spanish Crown converted them to Ro man Catholicism and gave them freedom. Those freedmen settled in a community north of St. Augustine, called Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose, the first free black settlement of its kind in what became the United S tates. M any of those slaves were also welcomed by Creek and S eminole Native Americans, who had established settlements in the region at the invitation of the Spanish government. I have been in Florida since the 1960s. I came here with the Space Program. We all worked together at CKAFS during those years blacks, whites, yellow, it really didn't matter your race as we were working on something none of us ever dreamed would happen in our time. T oday, immigrants pour into Florida from Latin America, Haiti, Cuba, Mexico, Africa and Asia, which would negate the fact of "apartheid" in this state. We we re even lucky enough when Fidel Castro sent us Cu ba's criminals one year, and Florida may still be feeding some of them in a secured cell. Im not sure where you were marching during those y ears, when the rest of us were working, but we did have all races on both Kennedy Space Center and the Air Force S tation. Florida census shows that the current white population is around 51 percent. Is that who you accuse? Mo re confusing is that you call us this name when our state helped put an African-American into the most important position in our country. We have an African-American first lady. We have an African-American head of the Justice Department. I would hope the young people of our country would strive to emulate these African-Americans, rather than follow your path of hate and fear mongering. Y our time in history is past.

Fr om a tiki bar and swimming pool, to charter boats and fishing docks, topped with top-notch dining with a picturesque view, Pirates Co ve Resort & Marina has everything covered. The expansive property sits on Manatee Pocket, nestled in Port Salerno, a historic fishing village with immediate access to the O keechobee Waterway and I ntracoastal Waterway. When I visited Pirates Co ve, I felt like I was visiting a sleepy fishing town. The w eather was as gorgeous as the views and the resort atmosphere made me feel as if I had escaped the world for a little while. Although the marina and hotel areas are the larger attractions, my time at the r esort was spent at Pirates Loft, a spacious restaurant ov erlooking the water. I spoke with executive chef Richard OKeefe who told me one of the keys to their success. We cater to the regulars who visit us all the time. We have three bars on the property and one of them is primarily used by people that make us a routine stop, he said. W e have a tiki bar on the waterfront that is very popular on the weekends. We have live music downstairs and have a band in here (the restaurant) most weekends. Thats where our third bar is located. The spacious restaurant has three areas to accommodate guests. The waterfront area was quiet and was perfect for those who wanted to enjoy a dinner that rivaled the beautiful view. There was also a room that could be partitioned off from the other areas so larger parties could enjoy privacy. The elegant dining r oom had wooden ceilings and large windows offered a breathtaking view of the marina. The third area in the r estaurant held a full bar, stage and area for dancing. There is also a swimming pool area, other private dining rooms and a space in front of the marina with chairs and tables if guests prefer to sit by the water. G uests can feel comfortable and sit wherever they want when they visit us. The same food options are available at all of the bars and all of the areas of the r estaurant, Mr. OKeefe said. The restaurant also plays host to many of the areas fishing tournaments and is the favorite place for high school reunions. While I was enjoying the view, I was served house specialty She Crab soup. This award-winning appetizer was full of mushr ooms, lumps of king-crab, simmered with heavy cream in a shrimp and lobster stock. The soup was delicious and enough to make a meal out of. Mr. OKeefe suggested I try the roast pork dip sandwich, and Im glad he did. The tender meat is thinly sliced and topped with melted Swiss cheese. The sandwich is served on a warm, soft roll with onion M ulligans Beach House is hosting a back to schoolthemed fundraiser benefitting Mollys House on Thursday, Aug. 15 from 5-8 p.m. at their Jensen Beach and Stuart locations.

Despite all the wet weather, fishing has still been pretty good. Its that time of year when bait begins to cover the beaches and the big fish follow. S nook, tarpon, big jacks, bonita and Spanish Mackerel will all be on the catch list. F ish early or late in the day the key is to locate the bait and then fish around it. Hor des of silversides and glass minnows will begin to form in what appears to be a large black cloud on the surfs edge. Thats where you will find the fish. The best way to do this is to go from one access point to another. Walk up the dune and look, if theres no bait, move on the next beach until you find it. T iger shores, Walton R ocks and the House of R efuge are all good locations to start. For the live bait fans, bring your sabiki rigs to the beach with you and the pilchards should be close enough to catch. Try a small whiting/croaker that will get the job done, too. DOA bait busters were red hot last year and I dont think that will change. The color is your choice, but make sure its a deep runner. S poons and jerk baits work w ell when the fish are honed in on the smaller baits. The river has been plagued with dirty runoff from Lake Okeechobee, however, the area from power plant north has still held a lot of fish in somewhat nicer water. W ith the tannic color of the river, darker baits work best. Root beer is my top choice. Trout and reds can be found in 13 foot of water. Start with the top water plugs and move to a suspending bait as the sun goes up. C atch and release snook fishing has been excellent at both the St. Lucie and Fort Pierce inlets. If available, use live bait. Offshore, activity has been better over the last few days. Dolphin has been reported from 180220 feet out, as w ell as an excellent wahoo bite. We weighed fish here at the shop from 2040 pounds. Always, have a bait down in your spread, whether it by a planer, cigar lead or downrigger. Split tail mullet and large ballyhoo are excellent baits for the wahoo. The cobia bite has tapered off considerably, but a few small fish are still hanging around the bull shark barge and the sand pile. Make sure that fish are 33inches before you gaff it. The only bait to speak of has been north up the beach. Look for the birds and you will find the bait. Im hoping for a little less r ain in August. What about y ou?

The inaugural Treasure C oast Lionfish Safari was held July 19-21 and despite afternoon summer thunderstorms, brought in some of the largest lionfish ever caught in local waters. This invasive species is gaining attention as its numbers grow out of control while devouring native game and food fish stock offshore, as well as in our lagoon and estuaries. R esearch scientists, Dr. Jim M asterson from Harbor Br anch Oceanographic and Dr Nic Eugene from the S mithsonian Institute were on hand to verify sizes and counts. F lorida Fish & Wildlife Service also collected data from stomach dissection, contributing in the effort to understand what the Lionfish invasion is feeding on in the offshore reef and inland breeding habitat. Study continues but FWS identified a predominate diet of black sea bass, scad, shrimp, cardinal fish and gobie from this catch. Fi ve teams of four divers participated in the event, bringing in a total of 278 lionfish ranging in length from 2 to 15inches. The three winning categories included largest, most, and smallest. Nova S outheastern Universitymarine scientists, Ben Bar ker and Adam Nardelli, put an additional bounty of $80 on the smallest lionfish captured alive. The bounty was collected by Mar ia Hickerson, member of Team Frapper. The three winning teams collected more than $3,000 in cash awards and prizes. P lans are already underway for next years event. For more information,call (772) 528-0675. One of the sure signs of the summer season is the sight of honeybees fluttering from flower to flower in search of sweet nectar that is needed for the bees to produce honey. Mo re often than not, these small creatures normally mind their own business at hand. This scenario is slowly beginning to change. W ith the introduction of the Africanized bees, you no longer can assume that the bee you see is going to leave y ou alone. The problem is that only a bee expert can tell the difference between an ordinary honeybee and one that is Africanized. Killer B ees are slightly smaller than there honeybee counterparts. S imilar to the imported fire ant, Africanized Honey Bees have been brought to our country by accident. The bees are cousins of bees that we re imported to South America in an attempt to breed more efficient honey bees that are better adapted to a tropical climate. This all transpired in 1957. The problems began to mount when they found that the bees were multiplying much faster than expected. Some of these bees escaped from their intended area and the migration began. K iller Bees acquired their name because they tend to be much more aggressive than normal honeybees. They will chase down people or animals for long distances and in much larger numbers than normal bees. You can initiate an attack by simply getting into the bees territory You do not have to disturb the hive in order to get attacked. This is what makes them so dangerous. It is now known that the bees have arrived in our area. It is a good idea to simply assume that when you see a honeybee, assume it might be a killer bee and stay clear of its path. These bees can make hives in almost any structure so be aware of large numbers of bees coming and going out of trees, walls or virtually any object that has a hollow area. Normally, a few bees around your flowers doing their normal routine will generally not be a problem. Remember that bees are necessary for pollination of flowers, fruits and vegetables. In the unlikely event you are under attack from a swarm of bees, run and find shelter as soon as possible. When you are in a safe area away from the bees, determine if you will need medical attention. If you have been stung several times, and have symptoms such as breathing difficulties, seek medical attention immediately. Local pain and some swelling is a normal occurr ence and does not always re quire medical attention. If y ou have known allergies to bee stings, seek medical attention no matter what. In addition, if you suspect you have encountered killer bee activity, notify authorities immediately. One of my favorite plants to plant during the summer months is the Mexican H eather. These plants boast colorful lavender, purple or white flowers. They do well in both summer and winter. They do well in full sun as w ell as partial shade and will tolerate temperatures as low as 28 degrees. Even if they freeze to the ground, there is a chance they will grow back. They have excellent heat tolerance but do best with r egular watering. They can grow to be threefeet tall but can be easily trimmed to fit y our needs. They can be propagated from plant cuttings in the summer and they also can be grown from seed. The most common var iety in retail stores is the Allyson, which has purple flowers. I also use Heather in my bedding area. The combination of the three flowers makes a great contrast of color in a flowerbed and you have the advantage of using flowers that tolerate our intense heat. You can also add some D usty Miller to the mix for a r eal treat. The silver-white colored leaves can really add the flower mix for a picture perfect garden!

If you are 50 years old, or will be soon, and want to experience the thrill that comes with competitive tournament golf, you should look into the Senior Amateur Golf T our. This tour is open to men and women of all skill levels who will turn 50-years of age or older during this calendar y ear. In Florida, there are three tours in our area, West Palm B each, Orlando, and North C entral; a fourth is in the T ampa-Sarasota area. Each tour has its own schedule of events. The curr ent West Palm schedule started in March, and has six events left out of its 15-event 2013 schedule. The Orlando T our also started in March. The 16-event schedule has five tournaments remaining between now and October. M embers get to play some of the most exclusive and desired tracks in their area. The best part of this tour is that when you join you can play in events on any of the 15 tours. All you do is pay your entrance fee and off you go. M embership is $85 and the tournament entry fees range from $65 to over $100 depending on where you are playing, with most falling around $85. Most members are even allowed to play a practice round for what usually amounts to a cart fee. The membership fee includes T our merchandise and allows y ou to play in all local events as well as any SAGT event in the United States. If you aren't sure if the S enior Amateur Golf Tour is something you would like to join and play in, they will allow you to play once as a guest. All you have to do is pay the entry fee for that event. Y ou will not be eligible for prizes or points towards the y ear-end awards, but you will get your feet wet and know if it's something you would enjoy doing more than once. S enior Amateur Golf Tour events are 18 hole stroke play tournaments using only gross score and conforming to USGA Rules. Golfers are placed in flights according to their handicap and remain in that flight until their handicap warrants a move. Points are awarded to golfers in every event. All points and standings are kept current on the w ebsite, allowing you to see exactly where you stand. There are four flights, broken down into Championship (0-3.9 handicap index); A F light (4-8.9); B Flight (9-13.9); and C Flight (14 and above). Y ou will play against golfers of similar skill. The top finishers in each flight will receive gift cards at every event. Prizes are funded from player entry fees with the total purse depending on the number of players at each event. An optional skins pool is also conducted at each event. At year's end, the top points leaders in each flight receive an invitation to represent their tour and compete against other top SAGT members at the 36-hole National Championship.

MARTIN COUNTY V ol. 12, No. 9 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Aug. 2, 2013Diver fulfills long-held dream at the end of the tail'PORT ST. LUCIE For more than 20 years, Cynthia Lott learned to swim with the fish, get up close and personal with the reefs but there was another life waiting for her under the sea. Ms. Lott is an environmental specialist III for the Department of Envir onmental Protection for the southeast district of Florida and a state of F lorida unit dive safety instructor. B eing under the water, the ins and outs of the oxygen tanks, flippers and underwater safety are no stranger to Ms. Lott. "I put individuals through rigorous training and safety training and once a y ear I put them through training for r escue and oxygen administration," she said. "I authorize their diving activities for the Department of Environmental Pr otection, make sure they have a good plan for their type of work and that they have everything they need." Du r ing a DEP meeting in Tallahassee, she talked to a fellow dive instructor about what they wanted to do when they retired. "I just said to her, Just think! You can become an opera singer!" she said. And she was like, No way, I want to be a mermaid!' and I said, Get out! I've always wanted to be a mermaid!'" It had been a childhood dream of Ms. Lott's. In high school, while Ms. Lott attended school on the West coast of Florida, W eeki Wachee Springs had an essay contest on why that student would want to be a Weeki Wachee mermaid. W eeki W achee holds mermaid camps throughout the year, teaching students and adults how to swim underwater like a mermaid and use compressed air tubes. "I was a surfer, I always surfed and I was a surfer until I was 50," Ms. Lott said. "I always thought being a mermaid was cool. I didn't win the contest though and my heart was broken." M any years later, she signed up for a camp at Weeki Wachee called Sirens of the Sea. "I spent three days there and learned an awful lot and realized it is more difficult having mermaid skills than we have as divers," she said. "You're not w earing a face mask, a scuba tank, w eights, a buoyancy vest or anything yo u' re just swimming with a tail." The small breathing hose that most of the mermaids use was the hardest for Ms. Lott to learn to use. "I t is like a small hookah hose," she said. "You have to open your mouth while under water, insert the hose, spit out the water, turn on the air and then try not to float up to the top." After being a little discouraged after all, she was a state certified diving instructor Ms. Lott learned how to use the breathing tube after three days when most took more than three months to learn. B eing a mermaid has given Ms. Lott a new appreciation and respect for pro-Spending time flapping her fin, blowing bubbles 776407O nline at50%OffG ift Ce r tificateswww.HometownNewsOL.com At Pirate's Cove, relax close to home for a meal or an overnight stay D ININGB1 IN DEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B3 Horoscopes B3 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6P arks, boat ramps closed for triathlonA triathlon scheduled for this weekend at East Island Pa rk under the Stuart C auseway has been relocated to Jensen Beach due to health advisories that have been issued in and around S tuart waterways.

"U nited Way acts as a backbone for the community by bringing together individuals and businesses to collectively solve key issues," said Jim Vojcsik, executive director of United Way of Martin County. The event includes free breakfast and a free afternoon at Sailfish S plash Waterpark in exchange for half day of volunteerism. The day begins at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast provided by Chick-Fil-A for all pre-registered volunteers at the Martin County Fairgrounds. After breakfast, volunteers will disperse to one of 19 volunteer projects available at 11 nonprofit agencies in Martin County. V olunteer projects can be completed by individuals, groups or families and include everything from putting together compassion kits for the homeless to painting houses to landscaping and vegetation removal. Once projects are completed, all volunteers and their family are invited to a free afternoon of fun at Sailfish Splash W aterpark. "B y engaging people to get involved in Day of Caring, we're hoping to educate everyone on the health and human service problems local residents face every day," said Mr. Vojcsik. U nited Way of Martin County helps residents with their needs by investing in local programs that focus on one or more of its six priority areas: end hunger, strengthen families, good health for all, solid education, create job opportunities and ensure safety.

Crown Car Care opens fourth locationEarl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl St e wart Toyota in North Palm B each.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal H ighway in Lake Park. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com,call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com. L isten to him on Seaview AM 960,FM 95.9 and FM 106.9, which can be streamed at www.SeaviewRadio.com every Saturday morning between 9 a.m.and 10 a.m. (1)Believe the newspaper and TV ads. It never ceases to amaze me how outrageous and unbelievable the car dealers' claims are. Just when I think that they can't get any worse, I see one that tops them all. Last month, one dealer was advertising in the newspaper and TV that if you bought one vehicle from him y ou got a second vehicle for free. The "facts and fine print" would reveal that the first vehicle was a very expensive one with a huge markup of over $6,000 and the second vehicle was only the "use" of one for two y ears... a lease. My father always said, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't." Astoundingly, the general manager of this dealership had the gall to say on TV, "This is not a gimmick!" (2)Buy a car on impulse on the first day you start shopping. Can you believe that this is the way most people buy cars? It truly is. There is something about a new car that excites people and appeals to them on an emotional level. People let their feelings short circuit their logical thought processes. Overcome that emotion that tells you that you must drive home that shiny new car right now. Go home and think about it. Talk it over with your spouse and friends. Research the model of car you looked at and the price on the Internet. Always drive the car you chose before you sign any papers. Y ou should take at least a w eek or two in the decision making process before you buy a car. (3)Trade your old car in to the dealer you buy from without shopping its value. M ost people have no idea what their trade-in is worth when they come in to buy a new car. They rely entirely on the appraisal by the selling dealer. The dealer can make it appear that he is giving you a lot of money for your trade by taking some of the high markup on the new car and showing it as part of the appraisal value. Check Kelly B lue Book ( kbb.com ) and E dmunds.com on the I nternet. Get at least three bids from other dealers of the same make for your trade. Make the purchase of the new car and the sale of y our trade two separate transactions. Remember that y ou do get a sales tax break by trading in your car to the dealer you buy from. (4)Use the dealer's financing without checking with y our bank or credit union. S hop for the best price on y our financing just like you shop for the best price on y our trade-in and the best price on new your car. (5)Believe this, "This low price is good today only." This is one of the favorite r uses used by car sales people and dealers. In 99 percent of the cases, you can buy that car for the same or an even lower price later. The only time that you can't is when factory incentives expire on a certain date, typically at the end of the month. If that is the claim, demand to see the written factory incentive by the manufacturer. (6)Fall for this, "Make me a written offer with a deposit and I will submit it to my manager." This is the standard operating procedure at most car dealerships. This is to get you psychologically engaged in the buying process. Once you have signed a buyer's order and written out a check, you will r emain in the dealership for a while and are more likely to buy. The salesman knows that. Insist on getting their best price on the car you have selected. You should never make the first offer. Once you have their price, compare it with at least three other prices from other dealers on the same make and model. (7)Follow this advice, "Take this new car home and see how you like it." This is the famous "puppy dog" technique so named because once you take a puppy dog home overnight, who has the heart to return it the next day? You, your neighbors, and friends will see that shiny new car parked in your driveway. It sure looks good! Ho w can you explain to anybody that you didn't buy it? (8)Agree to this, "I'll buy the car if you can get my monthly payments below ON CARSEARL STEWART T odd Harris, owner of Crown Car Care and Crown Collision, has opened a fourth location at 712 S.E. Dixie Highway, at the southeast corner of Dixie Highway and Martin Luther King Boulevard in S tuart. The business retains the prior o wner's name, Doug's Auto Repair, but is a division of Crown Car Care. "W e felt this was an ideal location for us to expand in because we now already have a shop on Cove Road in Stuart and in Palm City on Bruner Terrace and D eggeller Court. We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to this convenient location in downtown S tuart," Harris commented. Mr. Harris opened his first shop in 2006 in Palm City after spending years in the automobile repair industry. As a young man, Todd worked at a full-service gas station and later worked for several dealerships. Today, the Crown Car Care name signifies quality, honest reliable repairs. Their business philosophy is: From the greeting at our door to the repair or service in our shop, excellence is not an option but a requirement. All of Crown Car Care's technicians are ASE-certified and have more than 20 y ears experience in the automotive r epair and service industry. The business is open Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 8 am to noon. The phone number is (772) 463-7745. A Crown Car Care service center is also located at 4455 S.E. Cove Road in Stuart, phone (772) 283-4707, 3982 S.W. Bruner T errace, Palm City, phone (772) 781-8000.

$___.__" Most of us tend to think in terms of our monthly budgets. We might feel that we can afford a new car as long as it costs us less than $350 per month, but there is a big difference between $350 per month for 36 months and $350 per month for 72 months. I recommend that you finance a car for no more than 42 months, preferably 36. (9)Believe the salesman when he says, "You have my word on that." Be absolutely sure that every promise or commitment made to you by y our sales person is in writing and signed by a manager. That salesman may not work there when you have occasion to ask for that "f r ee loaner car" that he promised you anytime you bring your car in for service. (10)Fall for this, "All dealers charge a dealer fee and we can't remove it from the invoice." In fact, all dealers do not charge a dealer fee. I don't. But unfortunately most do charge this "gotcha" r anging from $495 to $1,000. It is true that Florida law (which should prohibit dealer fees entirely) requires that the dealer fee appear on all invoices. If you charge just one customer a dealer fee, y ou must charge everybody. The state legislators, in their infinite wisdom, decided if a car dealer is going to take advantage of even one buyer, he must take advantage of all of the buyers.never discriminate. But the loophole in this stupid law is for you to demand that the dealer reduce the price of the car by the amount of the dealer fee, making it a wash.

Sevin Bullwinkle/ staff photographerDerna DePamphilis celebrates her 100th birthday with her sister Louise Carnevale, 98, at the Emeritus in Jensen Beach on Saturday, July 27. If there is one basic function that everyone is familiar with and yet shrouded in mystery, I would have to say that would be the "p r int" command. Again, everybody is familiar with the print command click the print button and your printer spits out a hard copy. But the r eason it's shrouded in mystery is there are a ton of options and controls available, most of which no one takes the time to learn, that give the user a lot more control over the printer output than many people are aware they have. Let's take a look at some of these functions and see if we can figure out what some of them are good for and why we would want to use them. U sing the print button in the toolbar of many applications (or the "Quick Print" option in Word) will do just that quickly send whatever is onscreen to the printer using the "default" settings. What that means is that the computer has a series of preset settings that it will use "by default" if you don't tell it to do something different. F or instance, if you have more than one printer set up (perhaps your "real" printer and maybe a fax program listed as a printer) then the computer will have one printer set up as its default If y ou don't tell it to print to another device then that's the one it's going to print to. O ther defaults include paper size, whether or not you want to print in color or grayscale and print quality. Clicking the print button on the tool bar will send the print job to the printer using these default settings. B ut what about if you want to change something? S uppose you want to print to a different printer or maybe y ou want to print using the low quality settings (draft) to save some ink, how can you adjust these settings if the print job sends straight to the printer when you click print? To get to the print menu that gives you full control look for the "File" pull-down menu at the top left hand corner of whatever program y ou are trying to print from. No w, be aware that not all programs have the "File, Edit, V iew" pull down menus that we've grown fond of over the years. You may or may not see the file pull-down menu if y ou are running Vista or W indows 7, but that doesn't mean we can't get to where we want to go. If y ou have a "File" pulldown menu, click it. You should fine the print command listed and clicking that will pull up the print window. If y ou don't have the File pulldown then on your keyboard press and hold the CTRL button and then click P. That will open the print command the same as clicking File then Pr int. No w, I know what some of y ou are thinking, "Why go through all that business with the File pull-down menu when CTRL + P does the same thing?" Well, the reason I try to steer people in the direction of the pull-down menus is simply because there are other commands in there right next to Print that may not be available with the keyboard shortcut. F or instance you may notice a command called "P r int Preview" when you click the file pull down menu. Pr int Preview is a great command that saves paper by actually showing you a preview of what's about to come out of the printer should you commit and click print. The preview saves paper by letting you decide what adjustments you want to make before sending the print job to the printer. No w, back to our print command, clicking Print in the File pull-down or pressing CTRL+P will open the print dialogue box and the first thing it will show is what printer it's going to send to. This is where you can tell the computer to send to a device other than the default. Clicking the Properties button lets you change things like paper size, quality and color. The properties menu will change from printer to printer but the core is the same. It's the place where fine changes can be made on the printer. Fu r ther down the print dialogue box you can tell the computer what pages to print and how many copies and after making any changes here, clicking print will then send the job to the printer with the changes that you selected.

I do commend all of the event organizers for the support of our troops, and agree that we should all have celebrated the birth of country in an overtly patriotic fashion (especially now), yet I do wonder, would it be more patriotic to forgo the expense of the pyrotechnicians, additional police and emergency services, vendors, musicians and fuel for all those who attended? C ould it be patriotic to use the money to perhaps buy cars for underprivileged individuals who cannot get to job interviews because we do not have a reliable public transportation system? P ay the rent or mortgages for struggling families? B uy hurricanepreparedness supply kits for so many of us who will not be able to afford to prepare for a hurricane at all this year? P ay the electric bills for families for those who will lose electrical services this month because the assistance programs are so back logged? P ay the water bills for those who will lose water and sewer services this month because health and human services cannot keep up? Bu y families Publix or Winn Dixie gift cards to purchase $100 worth of food? Or how about something really creative? Fifty to 1,000 people in the county to spend and stimulate our local economy?Revise systemI have a son who's incarcerated in Miami. He was sentenced to 27 years. He had no weapons or drugs. It was a racketeering charge. He has filed motions to have his sentence reduced, but they've done nothing. He doesn't deserve this sentence. But they've done nothing. I'm very disturbed by the system.No kids at the barWhat happened to the state laws on alcohol? Aren't they supposed to be watching what goes on at places that serve alcohol? I was at a restaurant and there was a child at the bar. They serve food to children while others' drink. Where are the MADD mothers?What are kids learning?One half of public school seniors do not recognize the names of Winston Churchill or Joseph Stalin nor can they locate the half-century in which World War I occurred. What does this tell about the state of the nation's public schools? Regarding felonsY ears ago, lots of people died just to vote. Now they are letting felons vote. Why can't felons work? Give them a chance.A laughing matterIt makes us laugh when public school teachers brag about pupil performance and how things are improving in our classr ooms. C ompared with other nations around the globe, the U.S. comes in almost last in the number of hours our children spend in the classroom. It shows, because they also score almost last in math, science and reading.Check alien statusHo w many contracted workers are legal aliens? Seems like most of the contractors hire illegal aliens. Look at those who landscape.Intelligence levelsI would like to advise that since the Save the Chimps sanctuary was established in St. Lucie County, the county's intelligence level has gone up.Backward FCAT systemThis is about the FCAT scores. The schools with the highest average of children living under the poverty level have the lowest scores. The state gives money to schools that get higher scores on the FCATs, instead of the schools that get lower schools. Ho w can we help these children? There are a lot of children whose parents don't speak English or are from a broken home. They need more help. This is a backwards system.Code enforcement What about outside storage in residential areas? There are old cars and boats and furniture all over the place. The people at code enforcement should get out of their office and ride around the county, and not just wait for complaints. Those who complain are threatened, so they don't complain. They could just sit in their air-conditioned cars and pick an area of the county and look at what's going on. The rich get richerWe all went out and bought more fuel-efficient cars and are driving less, but look at the price of oil. W all Street has to make money on everything, especially on the backs of the little guys, that they sent jobs overseas and everything else, because the labor over there is so cheap. I walk from now on. I'm 81 years old, but I'd walk two miles to the store, rather than use my car and give them any more money. I am tired of it. I think you people ought to wake up and do something.Florida as apartheid?'When Jesse Jackson has an "inclination to treat Florida as apartheid," perhaps he should look into a bit of Florida's history: F lorida attracted numerous Africans and AfricanAmericans from the southern British colonies in North America, who sought freedom from slavery. Once in Florida, the Spanish Crown converted them to Ro man Catholicism and gave them freedom. Those freedmen settled in a community north of St. Augustine, called Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose, the first free black settlement of its kind in what became the United S tates. M any of those slaves were also welcomed by Creek and S eminole Native Americans, who had established settlements in the region at the invitation of the Spanish government. I have been in Florida since the 1960s. I came here with the Space Program. We all worked together at CKAFS during those years blacks, whites, yellow, it really didn't matter your race as we were working on something none of us ever dreamed would happen in our time. T oday, immigrants pour into Florida from Latin America, Haiti, Cuba, Mexico, Africa and Asia, which would negate the fact of "apartheid" in this state. We we re even lucky enough when Fidel Castro sent us Cu ba's criminals one year, and Florida may still be feeding some of them in a secured cell. I'm not sure where you were marching during those y ears, when the rest of us were working, but we did have all races on both Kennedy Space Center and the Air Force S tation. Florida census shows that the current white population is around 51 percent. Is that who you accuse? Mo re confusing is that you call us this name when our state helped put an African-American into the most important position in our country. We have an African-American first lady. We have an African-American head of the Justice Department. I would hope the young people of our country would strive to emulate these African-Americans, rather than follow your path of hate and fear mongering. Y our time in history is past.

Fr om a tiki bar and swimming pool, to charter boats and fishing docks, topped with top-notch dining with a picturesque view, Pirate's Co ve Resort & Marina has everything covered. The expansive property sits on Manatee Pocket, nestled in Port Salerno, a historic fishing village with immediate access to the O keechobee Waterway and I ntracoastal Waterway. When I visited Pirate's Co ve, I felt like I was visiting a sleepy fishing town. The w eather was as gorgeous as the views and the resort atmosphere made me feel as if I had escaped the world for a little while. Although the marina and hotel areas are the larger attractions, my time at the r esort was spent at Pirate's Loft, a spacious restaurant ov erlooking the water. I spoke with executive chef Richard O'Keefe who told me one of the keys to their success. "We cater to the regulars who visit us all the time. We have three bars on the property and one of them is primarily used by people that make us a routine stop," he said. "W e have a tiki bar on the waterfront that is very popular on the weekends. We have live music downstairs and have a band in here (the restaurant) most weekends. That's where our third bar is located." The spacious restaurant has three areas to accommodate guests. The waterfront area was quiet and was perfect for those who wanted to enjoy a dinner that rivaled the beautiful view. There was also a room that could be partitioned off from the other areas so larger parties could enjoy privacy. The elegant dining r oom had wooden ceilings and large windows offered a breathtaking view of the marina. The third area in the r estaurant held a full bar, stage and area for dancing. There is also a swimming pool area, other private dining rooms and a space in front of the marina with chairs and tables if guests prefer to sit by the water. "G uests can feel comfortable and sit wherever they want when they visit us. The same food options are available at all of the bars and all of the areas of the r estaurant," Mr. O'Keefe said. The restaurant also plays host to many of the areas fishing tournaments and is the favorite place for high school reunions. While I was enjoying the view, I was served house specialty She Crab soup. This award-winning appetizer was full of mushr ooms, lumps of king-crab, simmered with heavy cream in a shrimp and lobster stock. The soup was delicious and enough to make a meal out of. Mr. O'Keefe suggested I try the roast pork dip sandwich, and I'm glad he did. The tender meat is thinly sliced and topped with melted Swiss cheese. The sandwich is served on a warm, soft roll with onion M ulligan's Beach House is hosting a back to schoolthemed fundraiser benefitting Molly's House on Thursday, Aug. 15 from 5-8 p.m. at their Jensen Beach and Stuart locations.

Despite all the wet weather, fishing has still been pretty good. It's that time of year when bait begins to cover the beaches and the big fish follow. S nook, tarpon, big jacks, bonita and Spanish Mackerel will all be on the catch list. F ish early or late in the day the key is to locate the bait and then fish around it. Ho r des of silversides and glass minnows will begin to form in what appears to be a large black cloud on the surf's edge. That's where you will find the fish. The best way to do this is to go from one access point to another. Walk up the dune and look, if there's no bait, move on the next beach until you find it. T iger shores, Walton R ocks and the House of R efuge are all good locations to start. For the live bait fans, bring your sabiki rigs to the beach with you and the pilchards should be close enough to catch. Try a small whiting/croaker that will get the job done, too. DOA bait busters were red hot last year and I don't think that will change. The color is your choice, but make sure it's a deep runner. S poons and jerk baits work w ell when the fish are honed in on the smaller baits. The river has been plagued with dirty runoff from Lake Okeechobee, however, the area from power plant north has still held a lot of fish in somewhat nicer water. W ith the tannic color of the river, darker baits work best. Root beer is my top choice. Trout and reds can be found in 13 foot of water. Start with the top water plugs and move to a suspending bait as the sun goes up. C atch and release snook fishing has been excellent at both the St. Lucie and Fort Pierce inlets. If available, use live bait. Offshore, activity has been better over the last few days. Dolphin has been reported from 180220 feet out, as w ell as an excellent wahoo bite. We weighed fish here at the shop from 2040 pounds. Always, have a bait down in your spread, whether it by a planer, cigar lead or downrigger. Split tail mullet and large ballyhoo are excellent baits for the wahoo. The cobia bite has tapered off considerably, but a few small fish are still hanging around the bull shark barge and the sand pile. Make sure that fish are 33inches before you gaff it. The only bait to speak of has been north up the beach. Look for the birds and you will find the bait. I'm hoping for a little less r ain in August. What about y ou?

The inaugural Treasure C oast Lionfish Safari' was held July 19-21 and despite afternoon summer thunderstorms, brought in some of the largest lionfish ever caught in local waters. This invasive species is gaining attention as its numbers grow out of control while devouring native game and food fish stock offshore, as well as in our lagoon and estuaries. R esearch scientists, Dr. Jim M asterson from Harbor Br anch Oceanographic and Dr Nic Eugene from the S mithsonian Institute were on hand to verify sizes and counts. F lorida Fish & Wildlife Service also collected data from stomach dissection, contributing in the effort to understand what the Lionfish invasion is feeding on in the offshore reef and inland breeding habitat. Study continues but FWS identified a predominate diet of black sea bass, scad, shrimp, cardinal fish and gobie from this catch. Fi ve teams of four divers participated in the event, bringing in a total of 278 lionfish ranging in length from 2 to 15inches. The three winning categories included largest, most, and smallest. No va S outheastern Universitymarine scientists, Ben Ba r ker and Adam Nardelli, put an additional bounty of $80 on the smallest lionfish captured alive. The bounty was collected by Ma r ia Hickerson, member of Team Frapper. The three winning teams collected more than $3,000 in cash awards and prizes. P lans are already underway for next years' event. For more information,call (772) 528-0675. One of the sure signs of the summer season is the sight of honeybees fluttering from flower to flower in search of sweet nectar that is needed for the bees to produce honey. Mo re often than not, these small creatures normally mind their own business at hand. This scenario is slowly beginning to change. W ith the introduction of the Africanized bees, you no longer can assume that the bee you see is going to leave y ou alone. The problem is that only a bee expert can tell the difference between an ordinary honeybee and one that is Africanized. Killer B ees are slightly smaller than there honeybee counterparts. S imilar to the imported fire ant, Africanized Honey Bees have been brought to our country by "accident." The bees are cousins of bees that we re imported to South America in an attempt to breed more efficient honey bees that are better adapted to a tropical climate. This all transpired in 1957. The problems began to mount when they found that the bees were multiplying much faster than expected. Some of these bees "escaped" from their intended area and the migration began. K iller Bees acquired their name because they tend to be much more aggressive than normal honeybees. They will chase down people or animals for long distances and in much larger numbers than normal bees. You can initiate an attack by simply getting into the bees territory You do not have to disturb the hive in order to get attacked. This is what makes them so dangerous. It is now known that the bees have arrived in our area. It is a good idea to simply assume that when you see a honeybee, assume it might be a killer bee and stay clear of its path. These bees can make hives in almost any structure so be aware of large numbers of bees coming and going out of trees, walls or virtually any object that has a hollow area. Normally, a few bees around your flowers doing their normal routine will generally not be a problem. Remember that bees are necessary for pollination of flowers, fruits and vegetables. In the unlikely event you are under attack from a swarm of bees, run and find shelter as soon as possible. When you are in a safe area away from the bees, determine if you will need medical attention. If you have been stung several times, and have symptoms such as breathing difficulties, seek medical attention immediately. Local pain and some swelling is a normal occurr ence and does not always re quire medical attention. If y ou have known allergies to bee stings, seek medical attention no matter what. In addition, if you suspect you have encountered killer bee activity, notify authorities immediately. One of my favorite plants to plant during the summer months is the Mexican H eather. These plants boast colorful lavender, purple or white flowers. They do well in both summer and winter. They do well in full sun as w ell as partial shade and will tolerate temperatures as low as 28 degrees. Even if they freeze to the ground, there is a chance they will grow back. They have excellent heat tolerance but do best with r egular watering. They can grow to be threefeet tall but can be easily trimmed to fit y our needs. They can be propagated from plant cuttings in the summer and they also can be grown from seed. The most common va r iety in retail stores is the Allyson, which has purple flowers. I also use Heather in my bedding area. The combination of the three flowers makes a great contrast of color in a flowerbed and you have the advantage of using flowers that tolerate our intense heat. You can also add some D usty Miller to the mix for a r eal treat. The silver-white colored leaves can really add the flower mix for a picture perfect garden!

If you are 50 years old, or will be soon, and want to experience the thrill that comes with competitive tournament golf, you should look into the Senior Amateur Golf T our. This tour is open to men and women of all skill levels who will turn 50-years of age or older during this calendar y ear. In Florida, there are three tours in our area, West Palm B each, Orlando, and North C entral; a fourth is in the T ampa-Sarasota area. Each tour has its own schedule of events. The curr ent West Palm schedule started in March, and has six events left out of its 15-event 2013 schedule. The Orlando T our also started in March. The 16-event schedule has five tournaments remaining between now and October. M embers get to play some of the most exclusive and desired tracks in their area. The best part of this tour is that when you join you can play in events on any of the 15 tours. All you do is pay your entrance fee and off you go. M embership is $85 and the tournament entry fees range from $65 to over $100 depending on where you are playing, with most falling around $85. Most members are even allowed to play a practice round for what usually amounts to a cart fee. The membership fee includes T our merchandise and allows y ou to play in all local events as well as any SAGT event in the United States. If y ou aren't sure if the S enior Amateur Golf Tour is something you would like to join and play in, they will allow you to play once as a guest. All you have to do is pay the entry fee for that event. Y ou will not be eligible for prizes or points towards the y ear-end awards, but you will get your feet wet and know if it's something you would enjoy doing more than once. S enior Amateur Golf Tour events are 18 hole stroke play tournaments using only gross score and conforming to USGA Rules. Golfers are placed in flights according to their handicap and remain in that flight until their handicap warrants a move. Points are awarded to golfers in every event. All points and standings are kept current on the w ebsite, allowing you to see exactly where you stand. There are four flights, broken down into Championship (0-3.9 handicap index); A F light (4-8.9); B Flight (9-13.9); and C Flight (14 and above). Y ou will play against golfers of similar skill. The top finishers in each flight will receive gift cards at every event. Prizes are funded from player entry fees with the total purse depending on the number of players at each event. An optional skins pool is also conducted at each event. At year's end, the top points leaders in each flight receive an invitation to represent their tour and compete against other top SAGT members at the 36-hole National Championship.
