MARTIN COUNTY Martin C ounty Healthy Start Coalition believes that every baby deserves a healthy start in life. The statewide organization does so by offering free services like health screenings, childbirth education and counseling to pregnant women to ensure their babies have the best chance of being born happy and healthy. B ut the nonprofit organization noticed a gap in their services when they conducted research and analyzed data regarding low weight and pre-term births and infant mortality r ates. What they found was that 47 percent of pregnant women in the area are overweight by their first prenatal appointment, which increases the r isk of negative birth outcomes and gestational diabetes. When Healthy Start discovered the statistics, executive director Scott B erry knew they had to do something to eliminate what he referred to as the last unaddressed significant r isk factor. "I t made sense to us that we needed to develop some programming to address this," Mr. Berry said. "It's associated in a significant way with negative birth factors." The new program will utilize its network of service providers to offer access to registered dieticians to women who score high on a risk screening and have a body mass index of 25 or more, signifying that they are overweight. The dietician will provide the guidance, education and skills expectant mothers need to maintain a healthy w eight during their pregnancy and will help ensure a full-term, healthy baby at birth. Ma r tin County currently has some of the lowest numbers in the state for infant mortality and low birth w eight, but Mr. Berry hopes the new services for overweight and obese expectant mothers do even more for r esidents. "I would love to eliminate preterm birth, low birth weight and The New Year's Celebration was held at the Children's Museum of the Treasure Coast in Jensen Beach, on Saturday, Jan. 4. The ball dropped and confetti flew at noon for the celebration.Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographerCharter school ranked number one on Treasure CoastMARTIN COUNTY An overwhelming sense of pride is what faculty and staff at Clark Advanced Learning Center felt last month when they found out that the school was ranked the number one high school on the Treasure Coast by the F lorida Department of Education. Clark, a charter school that operates at the Chastain campus of Indian River State College in Stuart, is a dual-enrollment school that allows students to simultaneously earn high school and college credits. Clark, along with all the other high schools in the district, was scored on student achievement on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, graduation rate, participation and performance in accelerated curriculum, and college r eadiness. While all Martin County high schools excelled, Clark topped the list with 1,442 points and an "A" grade for the sixth year in a row. Their score also placed them in the top 10 high schools in the state. "W e are very proud of the hard work of our teachers and students," said Maria Mosley, executive director of Clark Advanced Learning Center. S he said that it is that hard work, combined with the atmosphere of togetherness at the school that earned them their high score. Ms. Mosley said teachers and students work as one to succeed, making a deliberate effort to excel in all they do. "I t' s a team effort," Ms. Mosley said. "It's not just one factor that got us here." Ms. M osley cited the convenience of being on a college campus to receive college credits, smaller classes and a great internship pro086721 MARTIN COUNTY V ol. 12, No. 32 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Jan. 10, 2014 780892 IN DEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B4 Compute This A6 Horoscopes B1 Obituaries B4 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6Historic preservation board vacanciesThe Martin County B oard of County Commissioners is seeking applications from individuals interested in being considered for appointment to fill vacancies on the Historic Preservation Board.

That's why educators are pointing their students to the moon, stars and all the space in between with this year's Celebrate Literacy W eek. "R eading Accelerates Success" is this year's theme as J ust Read, Florida! aims to show students how literacy skills connect with all kinds of careers in science, technology, engineering and math. "R eading is an important skill that that our students need not only to be successful in school but in life," said S hannon Blount, coordinator of reading and language arts for Martin County Schools. In D ecember, Indiantown Mi ddle School and Pinewood Elementary School got a glimpse of what the week would hold when Just Read, F lorida! Sent their portable planetarium to the schools. The excitement will continue on Jan. 13 as all of Martin C ounty Schools bring literacy to the forefront with fun activities and challenges to promote reading and writing. There will be read-alouds, "book tastings" and writing exercises. Some of the elementary schools will have fun space-themed activities like "Reading rocks so wear cool socks" and "Stars shine at night so dress really bright." "I t' s bringing the fun back into reading," Ms. Blount said.

Ma r tin County author Ma ry D awson will even be making video appearances to read portions of her locally based historical fiction, "The River Way H ome." "W e' ve got a lot of different things going on," Ms. B lount said. And she's looking forward to seeing them all his y ear as she hops from school to school in her first y ear coordinating the event. S tudents across the county will also be participating in the Million M inute Marathon on Monday, a state-wide challenge to get students to read a collective 33 million minutes in one day. S tudents will get extra time in class to read for pleasure instead of duty and their reading time will be tallied and sent to headquarters to be added up in hopes of achieving the goal. One student from Anderson Middle School will even get to take a trip to the Kennedy Space Center on Jan. 16 to be recognized for her outstanding public service announcement video encouraging her peers to read. Ms. Blount prompts parents to take part in the w eek, too, by encouraging their children to read for fun and by picking up a book and reading with them. Mo re information on Ce lebrate Literacy Week, including tips for parents and photos of the week's events, can be found at www.martinschools.org. TREASURECOAST The cost of sending a postcard or a letter to a pen pal will go up in this new year. The United States Postal Se rv ice will implement a new pricing structure on stamps and other shipping service effective Jan. 26, a press release said. F irst-class stamps for letters weighing up to one ounce mailed domestically will see a 3-cent price increase, from 46 cents to 49 cents, and a one cent increase for the cost to mail additional ounces, from 20 cents to 21 cents. C ustomers that have already purchased "Forever" stamps will still be able to use them as full postage, r egardless of how much was paid for them at the time of purchase, said Enola C. Rice, spokeswoman for the USPS. Fo re ver stamps are sold at the same price as a regular first-class mail stamp, meaning prior to Jan. 26, Fo re ver Stamps will cost 46 cents each, but afterward, they would cost 49 cents each. "C ustomers may wish to purchase Forever stamps at the current rate, before r ates change," Ms. Rice said. U nder the new prices, mailing typical wedding invitations with multiple sheets of high-quality, thick paper and extra interior envelopes would increase in price from 66 cents per envelope to 70 cents. The cost to mail a post card will also increase, from 33 cents to 34 cents. The stamp prices have stayed consistent with the average annual rate of inflation of 4.2 percent since the postal service was formed in 1971, but in light of a the extreme revenue hit the service took between 2008 and 2011, the P ostal Regulatory Commission allowed an increase this year of almost 6 percent overall, press release from the USPS said. The postal service r equested that the increase be made permanent, but the commission decided the duration of the rate increase above the normal r ate of inflation would only be two years. "T he Postal Service will be reimbursed for exigent losses that can be reasonably quantified," said Ruth Y. Go ldway, commission chairwoman in a press r elease. "W e have determined that amount to be $2.8 billion to cover the 25.3 billion pieces of volume lost between 2008 and 2011. The funds will come from a r ate surcharge that will last just long enough to recover the loss," she said. F irst-class mail isn't the only service to see an increase Jan. 26, shipping r ates for priority mail products will also change. Prices for the flat rate products va ry by size, so pricing information can be found at the local post office. Domestic priority mail users will have a new delivery option in 2014, Ms. Rice said. The new delivery service option will allow customers to send domestic priority mail express packages to most locations in the U.S. by 10:30 a.m. for an extra $5 fee," she said in an email. Domestic priority mail express is a fast, reliable service which offers dayspecific delivery information, up to $100 free insurance and free package tracking," Ms. Rice said. The postal service relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund operations. Despite re venue growth in the fiscal 2012-13 year driven mainly by growth in shipping and packages, the postal service ended the year with a net loss of $5 billion. It was the seventh year in a row for the service to post a net loss. The new 2014 prices are expected to generate $2 billion in new revenue, a press r elease said.

Local families benefit from housing programMARTIN COUNTY Ma r tin County Housing announced that two local families have new homes in the New Year. Additionally, four low-income rental homes in Palm City are now available for qualified individuals. The two families were able to purchase homes with down payment and closing cost assistance from Ma r tin County's Housing Pr ogram through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant from the U.S. D epartment of Housing and U rban Development. The NSP program also provided funds to purchase and rehabilitate a four-unit, two-story complex in Palm City. The Board of County C ommissions approved transfer of the ownership and management of this affordable rental complex to I ndiantown Nonprofit H ousing. By using the NSP grant funds the rent will be far less than the local market rents. R ental preference will be given to U.S. Veterans and their families that meet the affordability guidelines. In the last three years the Ma r tin County NSP Housing Pr ograms has helped turn 48 foreclosed housing units into occupied affordable housing within the County. S ome units are new single family homeowners and some are affordable rental housing. Low-income rental homes at the multi-unit complex in P alm City are now available for qualified individuals. F or more information about these rental opportunities,call Indiantown Nonprofit Housing at (772) 5973667.

TREASURE COAST You may not realize that the meals we eat have a history as rich as their taste. As the Treasure Coast F ood Bank commemorates 25 years of providing sustenance, security and hope to people in need throughout the Treasure Coast, the organization is reflecting on its past while exploring the history of food and the people who have influenced what we eat. To continue its long tradition of raising awareness of hunger in the community, T CFB is hosting two educational luncheons and presentations in February. The events, titled "An Uncommon History of American C ooks and Meals," feature B arbara Haber. Haber is a notable food historian, author, editor, James Beard F oundation Awards Board M ember and colleague of J ulia Child. Ms. Haber, one of America's most respected authorities on the history of food, will put this extraordinary subject on the table as she views food as a lens through which we can examine our country's history. She'll provide a historical perspective of the people who have taken charge of food in our country and made noble contributions to their communities, whether by collaborating to create community cookbooks for charity or by serving as volunteers in the Civil War to help nourish wounded soldiers. "H aving Barbara Haber educate us as we celebrate our 25 years of community service will set the tone for the years ahead as we move toward our collective vision of a hunger-free Treasure C oast," said Treasure Coast F ood Bank CEO Judith Cruz. What began with a small group of faithbased volunteers in 1988 has grown to become the region's only food bank and the largest hunger relief organization in the area. As TCFB marks a quarter century of service, it is preparing for the increased need in the future. The food bank took an important step in meeting this increased demand for services by completing the r enovation of a new 35,000 square-foot food distribution center in Fort Pierce. B ut, there is still more work to be done. "W ith more than 100,000 people facing hunger each and every week in our area, it is essential that we combat hunger not only with food but with educational and other hunger assistance programs to help individuals and families gain long term food security," said Ms. Cruz. An Uncommon History of American Cooks and Meals" luncheon is one of many ways TCFB will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. The events are being held in Vero B each at Holy Cross Catholic Church on Feb. 26 and in St uart at the Blake Library on Feb. 27. Both luncheons will take place 11 a.m. to 1 p .m. Tickets are $50 per person with all proceeds to benefit the food bank. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. In addition to food distribution, Treasure Coast Food B ank provides numerous programs that not only solve the immediate problems of hunger, but help individuals and families gain long-term food security. As a member of the Feeding America network of food banks, the Tr easure Coast Food Bank is leading the fight against hunger in our community and playing a vital role in solving the nation's problem of hunger.

When someone is in the market for a new computer and they come to me looking for advice, sometimes they are surprised to find out that a laptop can be just as powerful as a desktop. I don't know if it's the size of the machine that throws people, but just because a laptop is a lot smaller than a desktop doesn't mean it's any less capable. There are several reasons why I would recommend a laptop over a desktop and the power of the machine (to me anyways) has little to do with it. If you had two machines side by side, a desktop and a laptop, and they both had the same processor, memory and hard drive space I would choose the laptop every time and not just because a laptop is portable. I know what most of the usual objections are, I hear them all the time. "I don't take my machine anywhere so I don't need a laptop" is one common objection, "I like to use my full size monitor" is another and "I'll need something much more powerful than that" is probably the most often heard reason for choosing a desktop that I hear. One of the main reasons I choose the laptop is that everything that someone would need is already included without having to buy anything else. When you buy a laptop it's going to come standard with parts that often get forgotten when buying a similar machine in desktop form. Keyboard, mouse, monitor, Wi-Fi, w ebcam and battery are all standard parts in even the cheapest of today's laptops. N ot so with a desktop. I don't know how many times I've gotten a call from someone with a new desktop and they are surprised when they cannot connect to their wireless service because they didn't get a wireless adapter. S ame thing with the webcam they get the desktop home and go to connect with S kype and have to run back out to get a webcam (or both w ebcam and network adapter). But probably my biggest reason for choosing the laptop over the desktop is the battery. You see a laptop, with its built in battery, already has its own UPS (Uninterruptable Power S upply). I don't know of any desktop that comes with a battery backup as standard equipment and a UPS is one of those parts that can really save the day when the power is dropping in and out as it often does here in Florida. "I can't type on that tiny keyboard" or "I hate using that touchpad, I need a r egular mouse" and "I want to use my full size monitor" are three pretty reasonable objections and often people are surprised to learn that a laptop can easily be plugged into your existing keyboard, mouse and monitor effectively turning it into a desktop machine and eliminating the need to rely on a smaller screen, finicky touch pad or tiny keyboard. J ust plug your monitor into the back, plug your mouse and keyboard into ports on the side and you can't even tell that you're using a laptop instead of a desktop. It really is that easy and now, if you do need to go somewhere, y ou can quickly unplug four wires and be on your way. Pe r haps the most common complaint that I hear about laptops is the touchpad at the bottom of the keyboard. If you're switching from a mouse to a laptop's touch pad it can be a pain to get the hang of it. And to make matters worse when typing on a laptop's keyboard sometimes the mouse will jump all over the place as y ou type causing you to quickly lose track of where yo u' re typing. What's happening is the touch pad is sensing your hand as you type and it thinks you want to move the cursor when you actually don't want to move the mouse at all. Add a r egular "normal" mouse to the system and it gets even more confusing because yo u' re not even using the touchpad! Why is it jumping all over the place? Well the answer to that one is easy but most people don't realize y ou can turn the touchpad off when typing and sometimes that's all it takes to cure the "wandering mouse" syndrome.

Seventy-year-old Fort Pierce resident Ed Ruby finished second in his division with a time of 28:06.609.See more photos, B1. Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Shorten the time on death rowT ime on death row should be much shorter. I know some lives have been saved by DNA reports and such, but the others should not have the right to take away the rights of their victims. The predators of children should not be allowed to roam the streets. They can never be cured of some depraved need for children. Keep them in prison. That would solve a lot of problems. The money spent on their imprisonment can be saved by putting to death the inmates who are condemned to death anyway, just make the time shorter. Much shorter. This makes common sense. A lot of liberals who are so called do-gooders may be insulted in some way, but that is just too bad. Maybe the deputy that was shot to death by a man stopped for a traffic violation would have been saved also. This country is being run by people who never use good sense. Of course, I could be wrong. God didn't wait too long to punish the sinners, why should we?Raising moronsI have been reading so much about the young people learning to live off of my tax dollars in the way of government assistance and they don't even think it is wrong. C ase in point: My 20 year old granddaughter has gotten government money to attend college because she can't afford to go, even though she is capable of working and has worked before. So the government sends her money. She takes two or three courses in a city college. One weekend I find out that she went to Disney for a couple days and I ask her where she got the money and she tells me that whatever is left over from the college money is hers to spend as she wants to. I could not believe my ears. I questioned her on this and she saw absolutely nothing wrong. She is a very smart young lady, yet she truly felt in her heart that it was OK to do this. There were no second thoughts. I told her that it was wrong and she quickly disagreed with me that there was nothing wrong with what she did. All her friends seem to do the same thing. Our government is training a group of morons to r un this country someday, and it is a sad state. These kids have no sense of responsibility, or ethics or sense of morality or faith in anything except what they want to do. Another thing that bothers me is unemployment checks. When my husband was laid off work in the 70s we received a total of 90 days of unemployment or less. After that we had to either get a job, go to family for help or go to our local church for assistance. There was no more extension after extension after free money after more free money which is not really free it's my tax dollars from all the working I did before I retired and others are doing now!!! Oh God, help us!Regarding Seven50I'm not sure if the Seven50 plan is either good or bad; I am not a participant. I do know that poor long-range planning or lack thereof makes for poor results. I also know that the Seven50 plan presents only a suggested strategy and not a plan whose adoption would have been require by its participants. The premise of the plan was for its participants to arrive at a smarter path forward in urban development and avoid future congestion from future population growth. It certainly isn't a tool for Big Brother to usurp local governments. I know that some of the anti-Seven50 groups used a situation in Westchester County, N.Y., as an example of a Federal Government takeover attempt. In this instance HUD actually came to the aide of Westchester County after it was sued by the Anti-Discrimination Center for its failures to comply with a residential desegregation court order. When any branch of the Federal Government misspends taxpayer's money we should demand proper accounting and repayment. Should we expect any less when local municipalities misspend federal funding? I think not. The r eason various Counties dropped out of the Seven5o planning process was not its content, but because of the antiSe ven50 groups made the process so painful for the commissioners. It is a shame that the atmosphere of distrust created by the White House has made it possible for fringe groups to use fear, to derail this attempt at providing a better future r esidents.K eep criminals where they belongHo w many times have we heard similar stories before?

After my recent visit to the Martin H ospital South in July 2013, I felt it necessary to remind this community of how proud we should be to have Ma r tin Health caring for us and our families. This health system is nationally recognized for the services it provides, and I can offer you a firsthand account for one of the main r easons why: its people. Fr om the minute I entered the Emergency Department, until my discharge, I felt the caring and compassion of everyone who cared for me. In the Emergency Department, I immediately recognized a familiar face, which provided me great comfort from the start. A nurse named Liz cared for me and I remembered her distinctly because she had taken such excellent care of others in my family before. She has such a natural ease to her care, making it so easy to talk with her. I was raised to always say "Thank you", and I wanted her to know that I truly feel she was born to be a nurse. My hospital stay was positive, although I was very sick and needed constant attention. During my stay, I visited many of the different nursing units that Martin South holds, including the Intensive Care Unit and va r ious other nursing departments. My night nurse in the ICU was named Cheryl. She related to me on a personal level in attempts to provide me comfort. She shared with me that her family was struggling with a similar diagnosis. I was just awed by her strength and compassion she demonstrated as she cared for me. Once I transitioned to another department, my nurse, Greg, got me through one of my worst nights. He was a great listener, was always there for me during the night, showing me great empathy and compassion. He even checked in on me days after, when I was no longer under his direct care. The excellent care was handed off one shift to another without any interruption. There was never a lapse of communication, everything just flowed. The entire staff at Martin Hospital S outh delivers personal care, with all private rooms and a family-centered atmosphere. The environment and staff truly build important relationships with their patients. The moral of the story is, if you have to be in the hospital, this is the place to be."

police officer arriving at the scene. Q uestions. Why was this criminal not in prison? Will the person or persons r esponsible for allowing him to be free be held accountable? And, does anyone care more about the victims of crime more than they do about the r ights of the criminals?About illegal immigrationWhen discussing the many problems associated with illegal immigration, liberals often use such deceptive terms as "temporary guest-worker programs" and "pathway to citizenship" when they really advocate amnesty for people who have come here by breaking our laws. Despite what they say, there is no effective way for ensuring that law breakers will return to their native countries. Anyone who comes here "temporarily" is very likely to stay here permanently. Racism or not?I work with the public. I work behind the counter and use a register. It is absolutely appalling how rude, condescending and aggressive people are toward a person in my position. Looking at those people, you would never guess it. They are clean, up-todate and while perhaps not completely r ich, no doubt not hurting. Okay, middle-class white. When I look at the anger in these peoples faces and in their voices (for offenses that come from their perceptions) I have to wonder how they treat people of other color and even more so, I have to wonder how their forefathers treated slaves. I believe we can't even imagine the depths of their cruelty. These are clearly (so called) Christian people. I have met so many white Christian people of this sort that I am beginning to wonder if our white people's Jesus Christ is really Satan in disguise? www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, January 10, 2014 Martin County A7 086248 FREE CHIROPRACTIC EXAM & X-RAYSCall TODAYto schedule an appointment!7 72.220.5880€ Headaches € Numbness or Tingling in the Hands & Feet € Weakness € Sacroiliac Joint Pain € Sports Injuries € Low Back Injuries € Back Sprain € Dizziness € Pain € Vertigo € Foot Drop € Back & Neck Pain € Sciatica € Whiplash Injuries € Neck Muscle Strain Dr. Michael Hennings Board Certi ed Chiropractic N eurologist3662 SW 30th Ave., Ste 2, Palm City 7 72-220-5880 € www.henningschiro.com with this HTN coupon Expires 02-07-14Mon., Wed., Fri. 9am-6:30pm Thurs. 8:30am-4:30pm All Major Insurance A ccepted THE PATIENT AND ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY,CANCEL PAYMENT,OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE,EXAMINATION,OR TREATMENT THAT IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE FREE,DISCOUNTED FEE,OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE,EXAMINATION,OR TREATMENT.086720 The owner of the car dealership is accountableEarl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl St e wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.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.Congress passed a law a few years ago that r eally "shook up" publicly owned companies. It 's called Sarbanes-Oxley, named after the congressmen who sponsored the bill. B asically this law says that the CEO and other high echelon management of a public owned company cannot get off the hook from wrong doings because he claims he didn't know what his employees were doing. I believe the same rules should apply to all businesses, even if their stock is not publicly held. The boss should always be held accountable for the actions of his employees and this should apply especially for car dealerships. M ost of the employees that the customer comes into contact with in a car dealership are paid on commission. Those employees get a percentage of the profit that the company makes on the transaction. C ar sales people, service sales people (also called service advisors or assistant service managers), parts sales people, and the mechanical technicians who work on your car are mostly all paid on commission. This method of pay tilts the r elationship between the customer and employee in somewhat of an adversarial manner. The employee wants the profit to be as high as possible but the customer wants it to be low. In a car dealership that has talented, fully engaged, and ethical management, this potentially adversarial r elationship is kept in a fair balance. Without the ov ersight of upper and middle management and careful hiring practices, some employees will exploit a customer to increase his commission. What brought the subject of this column to mind was a call I received yesterday from a 78-year old widow from Fort Pierce. She called to thank me for writing my column and to tell me that she wished she had read some of my columns before she bought her 2005 used Ma z da. This was the first car she had bought on her own. H er husband had always taken on this responsibility. S he paid the dealership a huge profit on her purchase. S he was sold a maintenance package that she believed cost only $25 but it really was $2,500. S he was rushed to sign the papers at night because the dealership was closing. In the morning, when she r ealized the mistake, she drove back to the dealership and asked to back out of the sale but was told it was too late. She was told she had signed all the papers and that they had already sold her trade-in even though she had not given them the title. When she asked to speak to the general manager, three different employees identified themselves as the general manager. I get a lot of sad calls like this. The owner of that dealership should know what's going on. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt by saying that he doesn't know because if he does know it's even worse. The owner should look at the big picture and the long term view of his business. You can take advantage of customers and benefit in the short run, but you eventually "pay the piper" when your bad r eputation spreads far enough. Most of the bad things I hear about car dealers from their customers are not illegal things. They are simply unethical and not the way one human being should treat another. R efusing to refund the money of an elderly widow after she realized that she had been taken advantage of is not illegal, but it sure stinks." Jim Press is the top executive for Toyota over all of North America and he is also the only non-Japanese to occupy a place on Toyota's board of directors. He was quoted in the book, The To y ota Way by Jeffrey Liker, as saying "It's what you do for a customer when you don't owe him anything that is the true measure of character. It's like sticking up for somebody who can't defend himself". I really like this quote and I have it engraved on a plaque which I give out each month to the employee who wins the "A bove and Beyond Award." This award goes to our employee who does something for her customer above and beyond what the customer would have expected. If y ou have a bad dealing with your car dealership, do y our best to contact the o wner. This is impossible with publicly held dealerships like AutoNation and U nited Auto Group, but you should be able to talk to their general managers. If it's privately owned dealership, don't give up until you see the owner. ON CARSEARL STEWART RantsF rom page A6

Join Us for EarlyBird Breakfast7 am 9 am Monday-Friday Colder temperatures are testing anglersIt has been a hard week with the cold air, wind and waves. But after watching the weather in other areas, I love this place. These 60 degree mornings will get the water to the temperatures that the P ompano anglers have been waiting for. Yes, there were pompano at the bridge and some at the surf, but not enough to set a pattern. They are in the Club Med area of the North Fork down to Hells G ate, across the Sail Fish F lats to the bridges at the causeway, not a lot but P ompano. I ncoming tide and a little J ig were the best combination. It wasn't enough to set a pattern, but it was enough to make its presence known. They were bringing in three pound fish. But conditions r uled the day and not many anglers were out of there. Looking at the forecast for this week's fishing trip: check out the wind and find a spot where you will be away from it and yes, catch some pompano. There's a good trout bite in the river, just look to the deeper water, three-to-four feet and slow down. There's not much on reds this week but plenty of trout. There's no shortage of mac's with a mix of blues to cut everything off, so be ready have some wire leader or long shank hooks with you. Ye s, we had a report of pompano at the north end of He r man's Bay but again there we re n' t many anglers. The surf was heavy all w eek. The fish had no problem the bait. Anglers we re finding three pound blues, plenty of macs and enough whiting to fill the bucket. There were pompano and the jacks and I heard there we re P ompano. Sand fleas and clams work best for the pomps, and cut bait for the r est. With the over cast days, any time was a good time, just dress warm. Off shore conditions were calling for high waves but with the time between them it was more like big swells. These cooler temperatures and sporty seas will bring on the sails. The bite will start up close, about 60-feet is where I would start and yes, r un down bait. Break out the teasers and use them. No matter the conditions, we do not have to shovel and y es I can still where my shorts and flip flops. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook Bait and Tackle shop in Jensen B each.

Finally, all the madness and mayhem of the holidays is over. Now all we have to look forward to is six-page credit card statements and those dreaded N ew Year's resolutions that so many of us never keep. W ith that in mind, there is no moment like the present to spend a moment reflecting on the past and dreaming of a future with fewer shots and more enjoyment on the golf course. I believe that we need to find ways to protect the spirit of our game and its traditions. We should reward players who use skill over those who use technology, but we should embrace the technology that makes the game easier and more enjoyable for those who aren't playing it for a living. To make golf even better this New Year, we need to make a few promises to ourselves and to our beloved game. Now if you will please place your left hand on the R ules of Golf, raise your right hand and repeat after me, "In 2014, I promise to Arrive at the course early and on-time." Give yourself a chance to stretch, hit a few balls and try out the practice green. By stretching and warming up, you reduce your r isk of injury and your muscles are ready for action when you hit the first tee. Arriving early also puts your partners at ease. How often have you been on the range or on your way to the first tee and wondered if your playing partner was going to show or decided instead to sleep in? Always leave the course in better shape than I find it." It takes but a moment to repair that nasty ball mark that your ball left on the green, and doing so helps the green heal faster. When you take a divot, use your foot to push in the sides and then fill the hole with the sand provided. This action will make it more difficult for another ball to stop in the divot and helps the grass grow back sooner. "P lay ready golf." If you arrive at your ball first, grab a couple of clubs and send y our cart partner to his or her ball. Save your socializing for when you're riding in the cart between shots or holes. I r ealize proper etiquette calls for letting the person farthest from the hole play first, but most of my friends and I ignore this if that person isn't r eady to hit and someone else is. With just a little common sense we could cut down the time required to play considerably. Learn the rules." How often have you hit your ball into a hazard and not been sure where to drop your ball? H aving an understanding of the rules is quite handy when y ou play in a tournament and suddenly realize that you may cost yourself more shots by not knowing what the r ules allow you to do. "P lay in a charity tournament." It's a great way to support a cause important to y ou. It's also a great way to play courses that you otherwise may need to be the guest of a member to get on. "P lay from the forward tees." When you're struggling with your game, playing on an unfamiliar course, or the r est of your group plays from the white tees, join them. T ake the opportunity to hit a fairway wood or an iron off the tee. You'll swing easier, since distance is no longer a prerequisite, and probably find your game again. "S tart an exercise regimen." This is the hardest one for me and probably for most re creational golfers. There are at least 32 major muscles involved in the golf swing. The better we learn to strengthen and properly stretch then, the better and longer our golf careers will be. "I ntroduce someone new to golf." There are a lot of people who would love to try golf, but they either don't have clubs or anyone to play with. Invite one of those people, maybe even your spouse, to join you one day even if it's only to go to the practice range. You may find a new playing partner for life. And finally and most importantly, "Play without keeping score." Play just for the pure love, relaxation and enjoyment of the game. W ithout the pressure and tension to make par or birdie to break 80, 90 or 100, you may be pleasantly surprised at how well you hit the ball. Golf is first and foremost a game and most of us do not play it for financial gain. Enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and a little time spent with family or friends.

With the heart of our F lorida winter coming into play, cold snaps and possible freezing temperatures will be possible for the next several weeks, even though our temperatures have been above normal so far this season. Many of our F lorida plants will withstand the cold temperatures with grace while others will struggle and wilt at the first sign of a chill. Since many of us do some serious planting during the cooler winter months, the cold weather may pose some serious challenges for our precious plants. One of the best ways to offer protection for the root base of y our plants is to use mulching material around the base of y our plants. You can recycle many of the products you already have around your home. You can use bark from trees you might have cut down or bark that has come loose from your pine trees. If y ou live in a rural area straw may be available from some local farmers that are in your area. Sawdust can also be used as mulching material, if y ou are a wood worker or do a lot of remodeling. Peat moss is also readily available at most lawn and garden centers. If y ou have oak trees or live in a heavily wooded area, you can use leaves as a protective barr ier around the base of your plants. You can even use your old grass clippings as a mulching material around y our plants. By using the mentioned materials for protecting you plants, you are helping to recycle our natural r esources and you are saving cypress trees that are rapidly being depleted by the widespread use of commercial products such as cypress mulch. In addition, all the above named materials will slowly degrade in the soil and add natural nutrients that will be beneficial to the plants. In order for the mulching material to be effective in the event of a low temperature or freeze scenario, the material should be at least 2 3 inches thick but you should keep a margin of about an inch from the main part of the plant trunk. There are some exceptions to this rule such as citrus trees. You should never mulch around citrus plants as this can actually cause harm to the tree. It is extremely important that your garden be moist prior to a cold snap. The combination of dry soil and cold temperatures can cause serious damage to tender plants. If our area should come under a freeze watch or warning, you will need to take some extra precautions to minimize the damage to your plants. Covering your plants will be the next step you need to take. Be sure to use cloth and not plastic when protecting your plants. Plastic can act like a greenhouse and when the sun comes up, the drastic temperature change can be fatal to your plants. Even when using cloth, be sure to use stakes if possible so that the material does not come in direct contact with the plant. After the cold weather or freeze event is over, be sure to r emove the covering material promptly. Fo r tunately, Florida enjoys seasonal temperature through most of the winter and mild freezes do not happen all that often. It is important to remember that many of our tropical plants can start to have cold damage with temperatures as low as 39 degrees. Hibiscus plants can wilt and shiver at around 35 as w ell as many flowering annuals. Orchids along with some other specialty plants do not like temperatures much below 45 or 50.

MARTIN COUNTY Martin C ounty Healthy Start Coalition believes that every baby deserves a healthy start in life. The statewide organization does so by offering free services like health screenings, childbirth education and counseling to pregnant women to ensure their babies have the best chance of being born happy and healthy. B ut the nonprofit organization noticed a gap in their services when they conducted research and analyzed data regarding low weight and pre-term births and infant mortality r ates. What they found was that 47 percent of pregnant women in the area are overweight by their first prenatal appointment, which increases the r isk of negative birth outcomes and gestational diabetes. When Healthy Start discovered the statistics, executive director Scott B erry knew they had to do something to eliminate what he referred to as the last unaddressed significant r isk factor. I t made sense to us that we needed to develop some programming to address this, Mr. Berry said. Its associated in a significant way with negative birth factors. The new program will utilize its network of service providers to offer access to registered dieticians to women who score high on a risk screening and have a body mass index of 25 or more, signifying that they are overweight. The dietician will provide the guidance, education and skills expectant mothers need to maintain a healthy w eight during their pregnancy and will help ensure a full-term, healthy baby at birth. Mar tin County currently has some of the lowest numbers in the state for infant mortality and low birth w eight, but Mr. Berry hopes the new services for overweight and obese expectant mothers do even more for r esidents. I would love to eliminate preterm birth, low birth weight and The New Years Celebration was held at the Childrens Museum of the Treasure Coast in Jensen Beach, on Saturday, Jan. 4. The ball dropped and confetti flew at noon for the celebration.Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographerCharter school ranked number one on Treasure CoastMARTIN COUNTY An overwhelming sense of pride is what faculty and staff at Clark Advanced Learning Center felt last month when they found out that the school was ranked the number one high school on the Treasure Coast by the F lorida Department of Education. Clark, a charter school that operates at the Chastain campus of Indian River State College in Stuart, is a dual-enrollment school that allows students to simultaneously earn high school and college credits. Clark, along with all the other high schools in the district, was scored on student achievement on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, graduation rate, participation and performance in accelerated curriculum, and college r eadiness. While all Martin County high schools excelled, Clark topped the list with 1,442 points and an A grade for the sixth year in a row. Their score also placed them in the top 10 high schools in the state. W e are very proud of the hard work of our teachers and students, said Maria Mosley, executive director of Clark Advanced Learning Center. S he said that it is that hard work, combined with the atmosphere of togetherness at the school that earned them their high score. Ms. Mosley said teachers and students work as one to succeed, making a deliberate effort to excel in all they do. I t s a team effort, Ms. Mosley said. Its not just one factor that got us here. Ms. M osley cited the convenience of being on a college campus to receive college credits, smaller classes and a great internship pro086721 MARTIN COUNTY V ol. 12, No. 32 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Jan. 10, 2014 780892 INDEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B4 Compute This A6 Horoscopes B1 Obituaries B4 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6Historic preservation board vacanciesThe Martin County B oard of County Commissioners is seeking applications from individuals interested in being considered for appointment to fill vacancies on the Historic Preservation Board.

The excitement will continue on Jan. 13 as all of Martin C ounty Schools bring literacy to the forefront with fun activities and challenges to promote reading and writing. There will be read-alouds, book tastings and writing exercises. Some of the elementary schools will have fun space-themed activities like Reading rocks so wear cool socks and Stars shine at night so dress really bright. I t s bringing the fun back into reading, Ms. Blount said.

Mar tin County author Ma ry D awson will even be making video appearances to read portions of her locally based historical fiction, The River Way H ome. W e ve got a lot of different things going on, Ms. B lount said. And shes looking forward to seeing them all his y ear as she hops from school to school in her first y ear coordinating the event. S tudents across the county will also be participating in the Million M inute Marathon on Monday, a state-wide challenge to get students to read a collective 33 million minutes in one day. S tudents will get extra time in class to read for pleasure instead of duty and their reading time will be tallied and sent to headquarters to be added up in hopes of achieving the goal. One student from Anderson Middle School will even get to take a trip to the Kennedy Space Center on Jan. 16 to be recognized for her outstanding public service announcement video encouraging her peers to read. Ms. Blount prompts parents to take part in the w eek, too, by encouraging their children to read for fun and by picking up a book and reading with them.

TREASURECOAST The cost of sending a postcard or a letter to a pen pal will go up in this new year. The United States Postal Se rv ice will implement a new pricing structure on stamps and other shipping service effective Jan. 26, a press release said. F irst-class stamps for letters weighing up to one ounce mailed domestically will see a 3-cent price increase, from 46 cents to 49 cents, and a one cent increase for the cost to mail additional ounces, from 20 cents to 21 cents. C ustomers that have already purchased Forever stamps will still be able to use them as full postage, r egardless of how much was paid for them at the time of purchase, said Enola C. Rice, spokeswoman for the USPS. Fo re ver stamps are sold at the same price as a regular first-class mail stamp, meaning prior to Jan. 26, Fo re ver Stamps will cost 46 cents each, but afterward, they would cost 49 cents each. C ustomers may wish to purchase Forever stamps at the current rate, before r ates change, Ms. Rice said. U nder the new prices, mailing typical wedding invitations with multiple sheets of high-quality, thick paper and extra interior envelopes would increase in price from 66 cents per envelope to 70 cents. The cost to mail a post card will also increase, from 33 cents to 34 cents. The stamp prices have stayed consistent with the average annual rate of inflation of 4.2 percent since the postal service was formed in 1971, but in light of a the extreme revenue hit the service took between 2008 and 2011, the P ostal Regulatory Commission allowed an increase this year of almost 6 percent overall, press release from the USPS said. The postal service r equested that the increase be made permanent, but the commission decided the duration of the rate increase above the normal r ate of inflation would only be two years. T he Postal Service will be reimbursed for exigent losses that can be reasonably quantified, said Ruth Y. Go ldway, commission chairwoman in a press r elease. W e have determined that amount to be $2.8 billion to cover the 25.3 billion pieces of volume lost between 2008 and 2011. The funds will come from a r ate surcharge that will last just long enough to recover the loss, she said. F irst-class mail isnt the only service to see an increase Jan. 26, shipping r ates for priority mail products will also change. Prices for the flat rate products va ry by size, so pricing information can be found at the local post office. Domestic priority mail users will have a new delivery option in 2014, Ms. Rice said. The new delivery service option will allow customers to send domestic priority mail express packages to most locations in the U.S. by 10:30 a.m. for an extra $5 fee, she said in an email. Domestic priority mail express is a fast, reliable service which offers dayspecific delivery information, up to $100 free insurance and free package tracking, Ms. Rice said. The postal service relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund operations. Despite re venue growth in the fiscal 2012-13 year driven mainly by growth in shipping and packages, the postal service ended the year with a net loss of $5 billion. It was the seventh year in a row for the service to post a net loss. The new 2014 prices are expected to generate $2 billion in new revenue, a press r elease said.

Local families benefit from housing programMARTIN COUNTY Mar tin County Housing announced that two local families have new homes in the New Year. Additionally, four low-income rental homes in Palm City are now available for qualified individuals. The two families were able to purchase homes with down payment and closing cost assistance from Mar tin County's Housing Pr ogram through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant from the U.S. D epartment of Housing and U rban Development. The NSP program also provided funds to purchase and rehabilitate a four-unit, two-story complex in Palm City. The Board of County C ommissions approved transfer of the ownership and management of this affordable rental complex to I ndiantown Nonprofit H ousing. By using the NSP grant funds the rent will be far less than the local market rents. R ental preference will be given to U.S. Veterans and their families that meet the affordability guidelines. In the last three years the Mar tin County NSP Housing Pr ograms has helped turn 48 foreclosed housing units into occupied affordable housing within the County. S ome units are new single family homeowners and some are affordable rental housing. Low-income rental homes at the multi-unit complex in P alm City are now available for qualified individuals. F or more information about these rental opportunities,call Indiantown Nonprofit Housing at (772) 5973667.

TREASURE COAST You may not realize that the meals we eat have a history as rich as their taste. As the Treasure Coast F ood Bank commemorates 25 years of providing sustenance, security and hope to people in need throughout the Treasure Coast, the organization is reflecting on its past while exploring the history of food and the people who have influenced what we eat. To continue its long tradition of raising awareness of hunger in the community, T CFB is hosting two educational luncheons and presentations in February. The events, titled An Uncommon History of American C ooks and Meals, feature B arbara Haber. Haber is a notable food historian, author, editor, James Beard F oundation Awards Board M ember and colleague of J ulia Child. Ms. Haber, one of America's most respected authorities on the history of food, will put this extraordinary subject on the table as she views food as a lens through which we can examine our countrys history. Shell provide a historical perspective of the people who have taken charge of food in our country and made noble contributions to their communities, whether by collaborating to create community cookbooks for charity or by serving as volunteers in the Civil War to help nourish wounded soldiers. H aving Barbara Haber educate us as we celebrate our 25 years of community service will set the tone for the years ahead as we move toward our collective vision of a hunger-free Treasure C oast, said Treasure Coast F ood Bank CEO Judith Cruz. What began with a small group of faithbased volunteers in 1988 has grown to become the regions only food bank and the largest hunger relief organization in the area. As TCFB marks a quarter century of service, it is preparing for the increased need in the future. The food bank took an important step in meeting this increased demand for services by completing the r enovation of a new 35,000 square-foot food distribution center in Fort Pierce. B ut, there is still more work to be done. W ith more than 100,000 people facing hunger each and every week in our area, it is essential that we combat hunger not only with food but with educational and other hunger assistance programs to help individuals and families gain long term food security, said Ms. Cruz. An Uncommon History of American Cooks and Meals luncheon is one of many ways TCFB will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. The events are being held in Vero B each at Holy Cross Catholic Church on Feb. 26 and in St uart at the Blake Library on Feb. 27. Both luncheons will take place 11 a.m. to 1 p .m. Tickets are $50 per person with all proceeds to benefit the food bank. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. In addition to food distribution, Treasure Coast Food B ank provides numerous programs that not only solve the immediate problems of hunger, but help individuals and families gain long-term food security. As a member of the Feeding America network of food banks, the Tr easure Coast Food Bank is leading the fight against hunger in our community and playing a vital role in solving the nations problem of hunger.

When someone is in the market for a new computer and they come to me looking for advice, sometimes they are surprised to find out that a laptop can be just as powerful as a desktop. I dont know if its the size of the machine that throws people, but just because a laptop is a lot smaller than a desktop doesnt mean its any less capable. There are several reasons why I would recommend a laptop over a desktop and the power of the machine (to me anyways) has little to do with it. If you had two machines side by side, a desktop and a laptop, and they both had the same processor, memory and hard drive space I would choose the laptop every time and not just because a laptop is portable. I know what most of the usual objections are, I hear them all the time. I dont take my machine anywhere so I dont need a laptop is one common objection, I like to use my full size monitor is another and Ill need something much more powerful than that is probably the most often heard reason for choosing a desktop that I hear. One of the main reasons I choose the laptop is that everything that someone would need is already included without having to buy anything else. When you buy a laptop its going to come standard with parts that often get forgotten when buying a similar machine in desktop form. Keyboard, mouse, monitor, Wi-Fi, w ebcam and battery are all standard parts in even the cheapest of todays laptops. N ot so with a desktop. I dont know how many times Ive gotten a call from someone with a new desktop and they are surprised when they cannot connect to their wireless service because they didnt get a wireless adapter. S ame thing with the webcam they get the desktop home and go to connect with S kype and have to run back out to get a webcam (or both w ebcam and network adapter). But probably my biggest reason for choosing the laptop over the desktop is the battery. You see a laptop, with its built in battery, already has its own UPS (Uninterruptable Power S upply). I dont know of any desktop that comes with a battery backup as standard equipment and a UPS is one of those parts that can really save the day when the power is dropping in and out as it often does here in Florida. I cant type on that tiny keyboard or I hate using that touchpad, I need a r egular mouse and I want to use my full size monitor are three pretty reasonable objections and often people are surprised to learn that a laptop can easily be plugged into your existing keyboard, mouse and monitor effectively turning it into a desktop machine and eliminating the need to rely on a smaller screen, finicky touch pad or tiny keyboard. J ust plug your monitor into the back, plug your mouse and keyboard into ports on the side and you cant even tell that youre using a laptop instead of a desktop. It really is that easy and now, if you do need to go somewhere, y ou can quickly unplug four wires and be on your way. Per haps the most common complaint that I hear about laptops is the touchpad at the bottom of the keyboard. If youre switching from a mouse to a laptops touch pad it can be a pain to get the hang of it. And to make matters worse when typing on a laptops keyboard sometimes the mouse will jump all over the place as y ou type causing you to quickly lose track of where yo u re typing. Whats happening is the touch pad is sensing your hand as you type and it thinks you want to move the cursor when you actually dont want to move the mouse at all. Add a r egular normal mouse to the system and it gets even more confusing because yo u re not even using the touchpad! Why is it jumping all over the place? Well the answer to that one is easy but most people dont realize y ou can turn the touchpad off when typing and sometimes thats all it takes to cure the wandering mouse syndrome.

Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Shorten the time on death rowT ime on death row should be much shorter. I know some lives have been saved by DNA reports and such, but the others should not have the right to take away the rights of their victims. The predators of children should not be allowed to roam the streets. They can never be cured of some depraved need for children. Keep them in prison. That would solve a lot of problems. The money spent on their imprisonment can be saved by putting to death the inmates who are condemned to death anyway, just make the time shorter. Much shorter. This makes common sense. A lot of liberals who are so called do-gooders may be insulted in some way, but that is just too bad. Maybe the deputy that was shot to death by a man stopped for a traffic violation would have been saved also. This country is being run by people who never use good sense. Of course, I could be wrong. God didn't wait too long to punish the sinners, why should we?Raising moronsI have been reading so much about the young people learning to live off of my tax dollars in the way of government assistance and they dont even think it is wrong. C ase in point: My 20 year old granddaughter has gotten government money to attend college because she cant afford to go, even though she is capable of working and has worked before. So the government sends her money. She takes two or three courses in a city college. One weekend I find out that she went to Disney for a couple days and I ask her where she got the money and she tells me that whatever is left over from the college money is hers to spend as she wants to. I could not believe my ears. I questioned her on this and she saw absolutely nothing wrong. She is a very smart young lady, yet she truly felt in her heart that it was OK to do this. There were no second thoughts. I told her that it was wrong and she quickly disagreed with me that there was nothing wrong with what she did. All her friends seem to do the same thing. Our government is training a group of morons to r un this country someday, and it is a sad state. These kids have no sense of responsibility, or ethics or sense of morality or faith in anything except what they want to do. Another thing that bothers me is unemployment checks. When my husband was laid off work in the 70s we received a total of 90 days of unemployment or less. After that we had to either get a job, go to family for help or go to our local church for assistance. There was no more extension after extension after free money after more free money which is not really free its my tax dollars from all the working I did before I retired and others are doing now!!! Oh God, help us!Regarding Seven50I'm not sure if the Seven50 plan is either good or bad; I am not a participant. I do know that poor long-range planning or lack thereof makes for poor results. I also know that the Seven50 plan presents only a suggested strategy and not a plan whose adoption would have been require by its participants. The premise of the plan was for its participants to arrive at a smarter path forward in urban development and avoid future congestion from future population growth. It certainly isn't a tool for Big Brother to usurp local governments. I know that some of the anti-Seven50 groups used a situation in Westchester County, N.Y., as an example of a Federal Government takeover attempt. In this instance HUD actually came to the aide of Westchester County after it was sued by the Anti-Discrimination Center for its failures to comply with a residential desegregation court order. When any branch of the Federal Government misspends taxpayers money we should demand proper accounting and repayment. Should we expect any less when local municipalities misspend federal funding? I think not. The r eason various Counties dropped out of the Seven5o planning process was not its content, but because of the antiSe ven50 groups made the process so painful for the commissioners. It is a shame that the atmosphere of distrust created by the White House has made it possible for fringe groups to use fear, to derail this attempt at providing a better future r esidents.K eep criminals where they belongHow many times have we heard similar stories before?

After my recent visit to the Martin H ospital South in July 2013, I felt it necessary to remind this community of how proud we should be to have Mar tin Health caring for us and our families. This health system is nationally recognized for the services it provides, and I can offer you a firsthand account for one of the main r easons why: its people. Fr om the minute I entered the Emergency Department, until my discharge, I felt the caring and compassion of everyone who cared for me. In the Emergency Department, I immediately recognized a familiar face, which provided me great comfort from the start. A nurse named Liz cared for me and I remembered her distinctly because she had taken such excellent care of others in my family before. She has such a natural ease to her care, making it so easy to talk with her. I was raised to always say Thank you, and I wanted her to know that I truly feel she was born to be a nurse. My hospital stay was positive, although I was very sick and needed constant attention. During my stay, I visited many of the different nursing units that Martin South holds, including the Intensive Care Unit and var ious other nursing departments. My night nurse in the ICU was named Cheryl. She related to me on a personal level in attempts to provide me comfort. She shared with me that her family was struggling with a similar diagnosis. I was just awed by her strength and compassion she demonstrated as she cared for me. Once I transitioned to another department, my nurse, Greg, got me through one of my worst nights. He was a great listener, was always there for me during the night, showing me great empathy and compassion. He even checked in on me days after, when I was no longer under his direct care. The excellent care was handed off one shift to another without any interruption. There was never a lapse of communication, everything just flowed. The entire staff at Martin Hospital S outh delivers personal care, with all private rooms and a family-centered atmosphere. The environment and staff truly build important relationships with their patients. The moral of the story is, if you have to be in the hospital, this is the place to be.

police officer arriving at the scene. Q uestions. Why was this criminal not in prison? Will the person or persons r esponsible for allowing him to be free be held accountable? And, does anyone care more about the victims of crime more than they do about the r ights of the criminals?About illegal immigrationWhen discussing the many problems associated with illegal immigration, liberals often use such deceptive terms as "temporary guest-worker programs" and "pathway to citizenship" when they really advocate amnesty for people who have come here by breaking our laws. Despite what they say, there is no effective way for ensuring that law breakers will return to their native countries. Anyone who comes here "temporarily" is very likely to stay here permanently. Racism or not?I work with the public. I work behind the counter and use a register. It is absolutely appalling how rude, condescending and aggressive people are toward a person in my position. Looking at those people, you would never guess it. They are clean, up-todate and while perhaps not completely r ich, no doubt not hurting. Okay, middle-class white. When I look at the anger in these peoples faces and in their voices (for offenses that come from their perceptions) I have to wonder how they treat people of other color and even more so, I have to wonder how their forefathers treated slaves. I believe we can't even imagine the depths of their cruelty. These are clearly (so called) Christian people. I have met so many white Christian people of this sort that I am beginning to wonder if our white people's Jesus Christ is really Satan in disguise? www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, January 10, 2014 Martin County A7 086248 FREE CHIROPRACTIC EXAM & X-RAYSCall TODAYto schedule an appointment!7 72.220.5880 Headaches Numbness or Tingling in the Hands & Feet Weakness Sacroiliac Joint Pain Sports Injuries Low Back Injuries Back Sprain Dizziness Pain Vertigo Foot Drop Back & Neck Pain Sciatica Whiplash Injuries Neck Muscle Strain Dr. Michael Hennings Board Certi ed Chiropractic N eurologist3662 SW 30th Ave., Ste 2, Palm City 7 72-220-5880 www.henningschiro.com with this HTN coupon Expires 02-07-14Mon., Wed., Fri. 9am-6:30pm Thurs. 8:30am-4:30pm All Major Insurance Accepted THE PATIENT AND ANY OTHER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY,CANCEL PAYMENT,OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE,EXAMINATION,OR TREATMENT THAT IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE FREE,DISCOUNTED FEE,OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE,EXAMINATION,OR TREATMENT.086720 The owner of the car dealership is accountableEarl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Ste wart Toyota in North P alm Beach.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.Congress passed a law a few years ago that r eally shook up publicly owned companies. It s called Sarbanes-Oxley, named after the congressmen who sponsored the bill. B asically this law says that the CEO and other high echelon management of a public owned company cannot get off the hook from wrong doings because he claims he didn't know what his employees were doing. I believe the same rules should apply to all businesses, even if their stock is not publicly held. The boss should always be held accountable for the actions of his employees and this should apply especially for car dealerships. M ost of the employees that the customer comes into contact with in a car dealership are paid on commission. Those employees get a percentage of the profit that the company makes on the transaction. C ar sales people, service sales people (also called service advisors or assistant service managers), parts sales people, and the mechanical technicians who work on your car are mostly all paid on commission. This method of pay tilts the r elationship between the customer and employee in somewhat of an adversarial manner. The employee wants the profit to be as high as possible but the customer wants it to be low. In a car dealership that has talented, fully engaged, and ethical management, this potentially adversarial r elationship is kept in a fair balance. Without the ov ersight of upper and middle management and careful hiring practices, some employees will exploit a customer to increase his commission. What brought the subject of this column to mind was a call I received yesterday from a 78-year old widow from Fort Pierce. She called to thank me for writing my column and to tell me that she wished she had read some of my columns before she bought her 2005 used Maz da. This was the first car she had bought on her own. H er husband had always taken on this responsibility. S he paid the dealership a huge profit on her purchase. S he was sold a maintenance package that she believed cost only $25 but it really was $2,500. S he was rushed to sign the papers at night because the dealership was closing. In the morning, when she r ealized the mistake, she drove back to the dealership and asked to back out of the sale but was told it was too late. She was told she had signed all the papers and that they had already sold her trade-in even though she had not given them the title. When she asked to speak to the general manager, three different employees identified themselves as the general manager. I get a lot of sad calls like this. The owner of that dealership should know whats going on. Im giving him the benefit of the doubt by saying that he doesnt know because if he does know its even worse. The owner should look at the big picture and the long term view of his business. You can take advantage of customers and benefit in the short run, but you eventually pay the piper when your bad r eputation spreads far enough. Most of the bad things I hear about car dealers from their customers are not illegal things. They are simply unethical and not the way one human being should treat another. R efusing to refund the money of an elderly widow after she realized that she had been taken advantage of is not illegal, but it sure stinks. Jim Press is the top executive for Toyota over all of North America and he is also the only non-Japanese to occupy a place on Toyotas board of directors. He was quoted in the book, The Toy ota Way by Jeffrey Liker, as saying Its what you do for a customer when you dont owe him anything that is the true measure of character. Its like sticking up for somebody who cant defend himself. I really like this quote and I have it engraved on a plaque which I give out each month to the employee who wins the A bove and Beyond Award. This award goes to our employee who does something for her customer above and beyond what the customer would have expected. If you have a bad dealing with your car dealership, do y our best to contact the o wner. This is impossible with publicly held dealerships like AutoNation and U nited Auto Group, but you should be able to talk to their general managers. If its privately owned dealership, dont give up until you see the owner. ON CARSEARL STEWART RantsF rom page A6

Finally, all the madness and mayhem of the holidays is over. Now all we have to look forward to is six-page credit card statements and those dreaded N ew Years resolutions that so many of us never keep. W ith that in mind, there is no moment like the present to spend a moment reflecting on the past and dreaming of a future with fewer shots and more enjoyment on the golf course. I believe that we need to find ways to protect the spirit of our game and its traditions. We should reward players who use skill over those who use technology, but we should embrace the technology that makes the game easier and more enjoyable for those who aren't playing it for a living. To make golf even better this New Year, we need to make a few promises to ourselves and to our beloved game. Now if you will please place your left hand on the R ules of Golf, raise your right hand and repeat after me, In 2014, I promise to Arrive at the course early and on-time. Give yourself a chance to stretch, hit a few balls and try out the practice green. By stretching and warming up, you reduce your r isk of injury and your muscles are ready for action when you hit the first tee. Arriving early also puts your partners at ease. How often have you been on the range or on your way to the first tee and wondered if your playing partner was going to show or decided instead to sleep in? Always leave the course in better shape than I find it. It takes but a moment to repair that nasty ball mark that your ball left on the green, and doing so helps the green heal faster. When you take a divot, use your foot to push in the sides and then fill the hole with the sand provided. This action will make it more difficult for another ball to stop in the divot and helps the grass grow back sooner. P lay ready golf. If you arrive at your ball first, grab a couple of clubs and send y our cart partner to his or her ball. Save your socializing for when you're riding in the cart between shots or holes. I r ealize proper etiquette calls for letting the person farthest from the hole play first, but most of my friends and I ignore this if that person isnt r eady to hit and someone else is. With just a little common sense we could cut down the time required to play considerably. Learn the rules. How often have you hit your ball into a hazard and not been sure where to drop your ball? H aving an understanding of the rules is quite handy when y ou play in a tournament and suddenly realize that you may cost yourself more shots by not knowing what the r ules allow you to do. P lay in a charity tournament. It's a great way to support a cause important to y ou. Its also a great way to play courses that you otherwise may need to be the guest of a member to get on. P lay from the forward tees. When you're struggling with your game, playing on an unfamiliar course, or the r est of your group plays from the white tees, join them. T ake the opportunity to hit a fairway wood or an iron off the tee. You'll swing easier, since distance is no longer a prerequisite, and probably find your game again. S tart an exercise regimen. This is the hardest one for me and probably for most re creational golfers. There are at least 32 major muscles involved in the golf swing. The better we learn to strengthen and properly stretch then, the better and longer our golf careers will be. I ntroduce someone new to golf. There are a lot of people who would love to try golf, but they either don't have clubs or anyone to play with. Invite one of those people, maybe even your spouse, to join you one day even if its only to go to the practice range. You may find a new playing partner for life. And finally and most importantly, Play without keeping score. Play just for the pure love, relaxation and enjoyment of the game. W ithout the pressure and tension to make par or birdie to break 80, 90 or 100, you may be pleasantly surprised at how well you hit the ball. Golf is first and foremost a game and most of us do not play it for financial gain. Enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and a little time spent with family or friends.

With the heart of our F lorida winter coming into play, cold snaps and possible freezing temperatures will be possible for the next several weeks, even though our temperatures have been above normal so far this season. Many of our F lorida plants will withstand the cold temperatures with grace while others will struggle and wilt at the first sign of a chill. Since many of us do some serious planting during the cooler winter months, the cold weather may pose some serious challenges for our precious plants. One of the best ways to offer protection for the root base of y our plants is to use mulching material around the base of y our plants. You can recycle many of the products you already have around your home. You can use bark from trees you might have cut down or bark that has come loose from your pine trees. If y ou live in a rural area straw may be available from some local farmers that are in your area. Sawdust can also be used as mulching material, if y ou are a wood worker or do a lot of remodeling. Peat moss is also readily available at most lawn and garden centers. If y ou have oak trees or live in a heavily wooded area, you can use leaves as a protective barr ier around the base of your plants. You can even use your old grass clippings as a mulching material around y our plants. By using the mentioned materials for protecting you plants, you are helping to recycle our natural r esources and you are saving cypress trees that are rapidly being depleted by the widespread use of commercial products such as cypress mulch. In addition, all the above named materials will slowly degrade in the soil and add natural nutrients that will be beneficial to the plants. In order for the mulching material to be effective in the event of a low temperature or freeze scenario, the material should be at least 2 3 inches thick but you should keep a margin of about an inch from the main part of the plant trunk. There are some exceptions to this rule such as citrus trees. You should never mulch around citrus plants as this can actually cause harm to the tree. It is extremely important that your garden be moist prior to a cold snap. The combination of dry soil and cold temperatures can cause serious damage to tender plants. If our area should come under a freeze watch or warning, you will need to take some extra precautions to minimize the damage to your plants. Covering your plants will be the next step you need to take. Be sure to use cloth and not plastic when protecting your plants. Plastic can act like a greenhouse and when the sun comes up, the drastic temperature change can be fatal to your plants. Even when using cloth, be sure to use stakes if possible so that the material does not come in direct contact with the plant. After the cold weather or freeze event is over, be sure to r emove the covering material promptly. For tunately, Florida enjoys seasonal temperature through most of the winter and mild freezes do not happen all that often. It is important to remember that many of our tropical plants can start to have cold damage with temperatures as low as 39 degrees. Hibiscus plants can wilt and shiver at around 35 as w ell as many flowering annuals. Orchids along with some other specialty plants do not like temperatures much below 45 or 50.
