This is the 27th year the YMCA has r affled off a house in the area, providing one lucky family with a brand new abode or $150,000 and thousands of others with YMCA scholarships. Ev ery $10 raffle ticket goes toward providing Treasure Coast children and families with scholarship dollars that they can use toward the 87 programs like gymnastics and tae kwon do or senior pilates and tai chi that the YMCA offers. W e dont ever want to turn anyone away for an inability to pay, said R obin Sutherland, Easter House project director. Every year we provide thousands of scholarships with the money we raise. Thats what the Easter House raffle is truly all about. I t s not just about the house, Ms. S utherland said. First and foremost we r e supporting the children and families of the Treasure Coast. Thats what she has loved about her job for the many years shes been giving away Easter Houses for the YMCA. I feel very privileged. Ive changed 16 peoples lives, but weve touched tens of thousands of children and families on the Treasure Coast. Last year, more than 60,000 raffle tickets were sold, raising more than $250,000. This year the goal is to sell 62,000 tickets for the house that is v alued at around $50,000 more than last years.

Lifetouch, a national school and family photogr aphy company, invited educators from all over the U.S. to participate in a M emory Mission to Constanza, Dominican Republic. In 2011 and 2012, program volunteers built an elementary school alongside local workers and this y ear Ms. Cameron helped build a vocational school for the students. M ost Dominican nationals dont have the option to go to a university, so a vocational school is their best bet to develop skills and be a productive member of their community, Ms. C ameron explained. Ms. Cameron has been on seven similar trips to var ious countries before, but this is the first where she actually built something from scratch. Shes painted schools in M alaysia, Turkey and Mor occo and worked on turtle preservation projects in Costa Rico, among others, but now she can say that construction is her favorite. F or me its really the sense of accomplishment, Ms. Cameron said. S he mixed cement and erected block walls and worked with rebar and shoveled dirt and when she left there was a school, much more than the simple framework that stood in its place when she first arrived. B ut any service projects are good service projects and she is dedicated to being part of one every summer. She was thrilled to go on an extra one this January thanks to funding from Lifetouch. I m r idiculously passionate about going and doing these trips and helping people, Ms. Cameron said. S he knows the places she visits often dont have the money or resources to complete such large projects on their own and its her pleasure to help. But its not just the lives of those shes helping that are touched; she was, too. These trips put my life in perspective and this one r eally sledge hammered me ov er the head with perspective, Ms. Cameron said. The island is absolutely beautiful but the poverty is unbelievable. S he said it makes her thankful for everything she has.

The Captain Planet Foundation was created to support hands-on environmental projects for youth and awarded $1,137 to sixth grade science teacher Melissa Dubois to be used for her brand new Green Thumb Club. O ur goal is to create this beautiful outdoor learning center, Ms. Dubois said about the brand new program she will be implementing at the Middle School. It will be a complete outdoor learning lab where teachers can educate students about insects, climate change, sustainable gardening, even composting via a hands-on approach outside the classroom. Ms. DuBois is partnering with sixth grade science teacher Kirsi Johnson who r eceived a similar grant for her Native Keepers program through the Education F oundation of Martin County. Together they will be able to create a complete outdoor learning lab with a wide variety of native plants and vegetation. K irsi and I are really excited to start the first outdoor learning lab filled with gardening and environmental lessons that will keep our students excited about making the grade, Ms. DuBois said. It will offer a complete gardening experience for the students and offer them a plethora of learning opportunities outside the classr oom, she said. It s a natural fit for Ms. DuB ois who has a vegetable garden and seeds germinating in her windowsills at home. She loves teaching outdoors and is excited to share her passion for gardening with the students. The program also kicked off Anderson Middle Schools participation in the Green School Program and exemplifies the districts C ommon Core standards by combining multiple subjects in a real-world learning situation. I t s a huge part in us earning points towards becoming a green school, Ms. DuBois said. And gardening is the perfect way to integrate science with reading and math. S tudents in sixth through eighth grade will get to learn in the garden during class time, but can also join the Green Thumb Club and play and plant in the garden after school hours every Wednesday. Ms. DuBois just ordered supplies for the garden, including eight raised beds, tons of seeds, soil, gardening tools and informational books and many of the students cant wait until they arrive and the fun begins on F ebruary 19. They ask me every day, Whens it gonna start, whens it gonna start? Ms. Du Bo is said. I think its going to be very valuable. Ms. DuBois is still looking for parents and master gardeners to volunteer for an hour at the after school club on Wednesday and local companies to donate items like stepping stones, pebbles and soil so the students can beautify the gardens. Anyone interested can call Ms. DuBois at Anderson M iddle School at (772) 2217100, Ext. 209.By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsKnowF rom page A1

When youre working to achieve your financial objectives, y ou will encounter obstacles. S ome of these can be anticipated for example, you wont be able to invest as much as you want for r etirement because you have to pay for your mortgage. O ther challenges cant be easily anticipated, but you can still plan for them and y ou should. Obviously, the word unexpected, by definition, implies an unlimited number of possibilities. However, at different stages of your life, y ou may want to watch for some expected unexpected developments. F or example, during your working years, be prepared for the following: Emergency expenses If y ou needed a major car or home repair, could you handle it? What about a temporary job loss? These events are costly especially if you are forced to dip into y our long-term investments to pay for them. To help guard against these threats, try to build an emergency fund containing six to 12 months worth of living expenses, held in a liquid, low-risk account. Investment risk and market volatility Extreme price swings are unpredictable, and they can affect y our investment success. To defend yourself against wild gyrations in the market, build a diversified portfolio containing quality investments. While diversification, by itself, cant protect against loss or guarantee profits, it can help reduce the effect of volatility on your portfolio. And heres one more thing y ou can do to cope with the ups and downs of investing: M aintain a long-term perspective. By doing so, you wont be tempted to overreact to short-term downturns. Long-term disability One-third of all people between the ages of 30 and 64 will become disabled at some point, according to the Health I nsurance Association of America. Disabilities can be economically devastating. As part of your benefits package, y our employer may offer some disability insurance, but y ou may need to supplement it with private coverage. Premature death None of us can really predict our longevity. If something happens to you, would your family be able to stay in your home? Could your children still attend college? To protect these goals, you need adequate life insurance. As you approach retireF or 75 years, Home Paramount Pest Control has been eliminating pests from homes and corporations. It started with a single office in Baltimore, Md., and has grown to 32 locations in six states, including one in Stuart. Pa tricia Song is now the president, having taken over from her father in 2008, who took over from his father in the 70s. I always felt that the family business game me the opportunity to do exciting work and to continue the work my grandfather started, said Ms. S ong, who originally considered going into law. B ut shes proud of the company and how its grown, exceeding the pace of the industry with its full service termite and pest control and outstanding customer service. W e re a leader in pest control, Ms. Song said. S he attributes that success to many factors, including the companys longevity and stability, their highly-trained team of inspectors, and their scientifically-backed products and services. A team of entomologists designed the protocols for the company and ensures that the techniques and programs H ome Paramount Pest Control utilizes begin with an understanding of pest behavior and biology. The company offers standard and green programs for a full range of pest control and prevention, which many S outh Florida residents wouldnt live without. This market has such significant pest pressure, Ms. S ong said. We saw an opportunity in the market to provide a line of professional services that the people of the Tr easure Coast would appreciate. In addition to full-service options, the Stuart location is unique in that it also offers r etail sales so do-it-yourself r esidents have the option of tackling their pest control problems using a professional product.

I love being able to ease [customers] pain when they come in and have a pest control problem of any kind, said P atrick Powers, Home Paramount Pest Control inspector.

Local teen wins national contest MARTINCOUNTY Lily Car done has always been a hardworking teenager. She volunteers at her church, maintained a 5.95 GPA even after back surgery last year, and can now call herself the winner of ABCs Make Me a S tar competition. The nationwide competition accepts audition tapes from teenagers all over the country hoping to jump-start their acting career. Lily heard about the contest from a friend and decided rather last minute to take part. S he took what little time she had after school, hair still a bit unruly from a long day of classes, and filmed herself r eciting the script that ABC provided. A month later, she was thrilled to find out she was a semi-finalist and three weeks after that, one of four finalists. I t was crazy. From the beginning we didnt expect anything from it, Lily said. When I found out I was a semifinalist I was like, they liked my tape, frizzy hair and all! H er second audition tape was posted online, giving friends and family a chance to vote for her. She and her family posted a link to her entry on Facebook and Twitter and Martin County High School, where Lily attends as a sophomore, even promoted it in their news. All of her hard work paid off. On Jan. 31 executives from ABC contacted Lily via S kype to let her know she had won the competition. O h my goodness, I was so happy, said Lilys mom De bbi Cardone who was squealing in the background as Lily got her good news. Lily was also thrilled and surprised, exuberant that ABC liked her tape. In addition to the compliment shell be receiving $10,000 and a six-month holding contract with ABC that may get her a part in a TV show or promotion for the station. It might mean shell get a chance to head to Los Angeles. That would be really exciting. It would be an amazing experience, Lily said. Sh e s been acting since she was 5 and never thought much would come of it, but as she got older she developed a passion for it. I just love it. Its something that comes naturally to me, I guess, Lily said. I like that Im able to become somebody else. Sh e s been in commercials, short films, even an independent feature film called A s Night Falls, but her Make Me a Star win will help her along to the acting career she desires. I am so proud of her. She tries hard at whatever she does, Mrs. Cardone said. H er future is going to be very bright.

Unearned income?Why can people who sit around and have kids they cant take care of get so much money back from the government? I think the tax credits for income that isnt earned is r idiculous. S it on lazy behinds all day collecting welfare and food stamps and have the government pay for medical expenses, and then cash in on their tax returns. It sounds like a pretty easy way of life to me.Public transportationAs the area grows, more teens and elderly people are in need of transportation. It would be in the best interest of the entire community if there were better forms of public transportation for these two populations to use. Mo re teens and older people cause accidents, so why not give them an alternate way to get around? Smoking standardsThere are many occasions when I see a cook or clerk outside a restaurant of place of business smoking, only to come back inside, stinking like nicotine, and handle food or clothes. It s disgusting, and more business owners should set rules and regulations regarding smoking during business hours.Regarding food-stamp useI have to respond to the person who complained about people paying with food stamps. Things are not always as they seem. I lost a job that paid $88,000 a year in 2013. My husband is on disability, so I was the primary breadwinner. Since then, our house has lost v alue to the point that it is worth less than what we paid for it 10 years ago, and we are in foreclosure. U sing all of my retirement money, we tried to start a business because at older than 50 years of age, I could not find a job. We closed that business last fall. U nemployment benefits have run out. Our credit cards are charged up to the limit trying to pay our water bill, electric bill and gas bill, not to buy "extras" like clothing! The "new" N issan SUV that I drive was purchased when our income was more than $100,000 a year and we will probably have to let it be repossessed because I can't sell enough of our household goods on eBay to make the next car payment. I've had exactly two job interviews, with no one even bothering to call me back to let me know that they weren't interested. I've worked since I was 15 years old, and paid into a system that I never thought I would need. But now I do need it, and y ou know what? I'm damn well going to use it. So before you judge someone who is using food stamps to keep their family fed you need to know the story behind it. The only reason I know the woman in the story wasn't me is because I've already sold or pawned all my gold jewelry, what little of it I had.One persons opinionThe president did his state of the union address, and lets see he sold the American people a big lie and the ones who voted him in are the ones who think others need to pay for them. We need a change in this country. Lets quit giving money out to those who produce kids just to be on welfare and cut out Social Security Disability, two of the most abused systems we have. And the federal government wants this. Not only is this absolutely non-essential but it does not stimulate anything. Quit giving these people money to help them make them take classes to gain work skills. Sitting at home and listing to the poor variety of noise that they do does not educate them. The liberals have it all wrong. Giving these people money is not an answer, it adds to the problem. These people require education. And Fort Pierce is so poverty stricken with people who are dependent upon the government. Theres not going to be jobs here when you have an uneducated public. When the moneys gone then where will these people who came to rely on welfare or any other government support be? Hmm, good question. If yo u re someone who sees a female in a grocery store with a few kids with a very glum look on her face, trick her into answering a question on how she affords those kids. In todays economy you have to work 2-3 jobs. If theyre buying junk good chance theyre not doing that well. Im all for starving them out. Perhaps you wont see them driving a nice ride or wearing nice shoes. Thats all there wardrobe is their idea of showing off. Perhaps a few gold teeth too. These are the individuals who fail to think for themselves. F rom a servers point of viewWe hear a lot about bad service from people who haven't ever been in the hospitality industry nor worked in service jobs such as waitress/food server. I also hear from a lot of experts on motherhood from people who haven't ever been one. W aitressing is a bit like being mother to a mob sometimes. Y ou have to subdue the loud and potentially dangerous ones before you can service the quiet and peaceful ones. We're not ignoring you; we're trying to do our job, which is, first things first. If you can give us an order for food simply and completely before you sit down, we will grab our pads and take that. But if you've caught us in a busy moment, there are times when y ou have to wait. Many people do prefer fast food restaurants for this reason. Mor nings are especially hectic at a family restaurant, just as in a home with lots of kids. It is one of the most difficult types of businesses to do well and endure in. The drink order taker and the food server usually have two separate jobs, in order to serve you more promptly. If you are assertive and say, "Hi, I would like such-and-so, make it such-and-so," the usual response by the server is to try to make your request known to the cook as quickly as possible. She may have handed him the order already, and y ou don't even know it. We cannot be as fast as the assembly line at Wendy's, but, hopeful, you do enjoy the personal and friendly smile and attention from a real person instead of a plastic bozo head! Tr aditional family restaurants are dedicatedly trying to hang in there against the tide of the "fast food" restaurant. We are distressed at times about things that have to do with our own personal lives and not a reflection on our feelings for you.Im a senior citizen, except at the restaurantI'm 56 years old. I can go to the senior citizens center and be admitted as a senior citizen. I can go and get a haircut and get a dollar off for being a senior citizen. Y et I am not considered a senior citizen when I go to some r estaurants. Their requirement for being a senior citizen is 60 years old, for some reason. I cannot go to a lunch at a church for the same reason. So why are there different age eligibilities, when one age should determine whether we are senior citizens, or not. As far as I am concerned, there should be some sort of law concerning what is the age of senior citizen and all stores, churches, eating places and such would be the same age and not to be whatever age they want. Thank you for your attention.America, are we still beautiful?"Pretty is as pretty does." My grandmother was very fond of that saying, as was my mother. And I suppose my greatgrandmother taught it to her daughter, and so on. America was beautiful once, that is, until superfluous pride ran off with its integrity. We have cracks in our foundation. And we're building ourselves bigger and more upon a slippery mountain slope. The inevitable muddy landslide has already begun, yet so many builders the movers and shakers'' as they like to call themselves are so enthralled with heathen-heady pleasure that they don't seem to notice they are about to demolish the whole project that began in the 1770s. If we as a nation, do not fetch ourselves up sharply, it could all be over for U.S. in about 50 years. N othing will matter for me, myself, and I in 50 years. I'm probably not going to be alive past 100 years of age, but what about my grandchildren? What about yours? R eligious freedom: It's a wonderful thing. Remember the foundation? But the words say, "... Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion, and there is a big difference. No re ligion? Anarchy? How's that working for U.S.? Pick a religion, any religion, and get back in the box, kids. A utonomy is something you can have after you learn, study and practice the rules for living a safe, sound, practical and productive life. R eligion contains the rules. Spirituality is the product. Religion times work equals right spiritual living. You kids want the spiritual rewards, but you don't want to follow the rules laid down by all of your forefathers. It won't work that way! H onor thy father and mother. Don't reinvent the wheel. And ask yourselves, when is enough, enough? Iwas backing up some data a while back to an external USB drive, when I noticed a behavior that is not uncommon at all. As I began backing up the contents of a rather bloated My Documents folder (gigabytes worth of data), during the copy process I noticed the "estimated time r emaining" figure was jumping all over the place. It started out saying something like 48 minutes r emaining, and then jumped down to 30, 18 and then 11 minutes. As I watched the file copy process progress, I noticed the estimated time remaining figure stayed at 11 minutes for more than an hour. The progress bar was moving slowly to the right, and just as I thought the file transfer was just about over, the progress bar jumped back about a third of the way across. The time remaining figure jumped to a whopping 25,464,387 minutes. Consulting my trusty calculator watch, I figured that 25,464,387 minutes was the equivalent of 17,683 days or 48 years. No, that couldn't be r ight. As I watched, the number bounced around some, dropping from the incredibly high 25 million mark and dropping to more manageable numbers, such as 45 minutes, 28 and once again 11 minutes and there it stayed for another 45 minutes. I finally got fed up with watching (it's like watching paint dry) and shut off the monitor, so I don't know when it actually finished. But when I came back to it in the morning, the file copy was complete. And it didn't take 48 years. But it got me thinking; what is this estimated time remaining business all about, and can that figure ever be trusted? I've certainly seen that behavior before with other file copy operations, downloads from the internet, CD burning and other similar procedures, and I've always taken that number with a grain of salt, but that 25 million figure caught my attention. What is going on with this picture? W ell, in order to understand why that number fluctuates so wildly, it's necessary to keep in mind that, on any given computer, what's happening at any given moment is not necessarily the way things are going to happen in the next moment. So the "estimated" part of "estimated time r emaining" is just that an estimate based on the conditions taken at that particular time slice. And what happens, from secondto-second is those conditions are changing. Rapidly. What that means is when the computer starts a file transfer; it grabs hold of a chunk of data and looks to see how much bandwidth is available. Then it bases its estimate of how long it will take on that. But that estimate does not take into account things such as the ov erhead activity between the device and the computer and how much of the buffer is still available, etc., you know, lots of other technical things that are happening at the same time as the data transfer. Let me rephrase it like this: As soon as the file transfer starts, all the figures the computer based its' estimate on change, because of the way computers do things. What that boils down to is the estimated time for transfer is rarely accurate, because the conditions are constantly changing and can't be relied on, especially when it predicts that it will take 48 years. One question that is bound to come up is: "Is this strictly a Windows issue?" and to that I would have to say no. I've observed the same behavior on my Macs as well as my Windows boxes. So that, in a nutshell, is an explanation for the neveraccurate estimated time r emaining issue that I'm sure w e've all experienced at one time or another. I would personally like to see them do away with the estimated time figure and just stick with a graphical progress meter. That would make a whole lot more sense than the arbitrary numbers we get now, and they are easier to read at a glance.

I have written columns for this blog and Hometown N ews. Ive advocated on my r adio show for Consumer R eports. I considered them the single most reliable source for consumers selecting the best products and sellers of those products, and I still do. S ince 1936 Consumer R eports has set the example for unbiased, scientific evaluations and opinions on virtually every product Americans buy. They report, not only on products and services, but those who sell those products and services. They accept no advertising or any other consideration from companies. In fact, they will not even allow a company to use their name if they have endorsed a product of that company. When Consumer R eports recommends a product, you can be sure that it is their honest belief that that the product is a good one. Everyone is entitled to one honest mistake and I have to believe that this was the case with Consumer R eports. C onsumer Reports offers an auto-buying service to its members and charges $12 to give their members Consumer Reports bottom line price to buy any new car. They sublet this to an outside car buying service, TrueCar, which provides this data. In fact, TrueCar provides this service directly to car buyers for no charge at www.TrueCar .com, whereas CR charges $12 for each car you want to get the best price on. In full disclosure, Im a member of Tr ueCars national dealer council. Ive written about Tr ueCar in Hometown News and my blog, highly recommending them, just as I have C onsumer Reports. TrueCar, as a result of my advising and urging, will be moving soon to require all car dealer members of the TrueCar program to more clearly disclose the true, bottom line price. C onsumer Reports is inadvertently leading their members who purchase what they believe to be the bottom line price a price which is actually much higher than the bottom line. In the example above, the estimated dealer price of $22,253 with estimated savings: $4,782 on a new 2014 Toyota Prius, is actually $23, 252, almost onethousand dollars higher! The estimated savings are only $3,783, not $4,782. The extra $999 that the dealer adds to the bottom line price is disclosed in the pricing that CR gives their members, but its disclosed in the fine print and below the focal point of their documentation which states, This is y our Estimated Dealer Price and the price is featured in bold print and color. Some might say that as long as the extra dealer profit not included in the bottom line price is disclosed in the fine print, CRs done nothing wrong. First of all, this is not the way Consumer Reports does business. CR is vehement against fine print ads that trick buyers. This issue was actually brought to my attention by a very well educated, intelligent consumer who was tricked by this very CR bottom line price. She brought it to the attention of her mother (who happened to be my wife) because she thought my price (Im a Toyota dealer) was higher than the other two dealers prices. If an intelligent woman that is a college graduate and investment banker can be duped by C onsumer Reports bottom line price, what chance has the average consumer? F lorida law requires that that dealer fees aka Dealer Pr ocessing Fees and many other names be included in the advertised price of the vehicle. Im not a lawyer, but I think a good argument could be made that this information emailed to a prospective car buyer could be construed to be an advertisement. This particular dealer adds $999 to the Consumer Reports bottom line price, but he could add as much as he likes. In fact, Florida law has no cap on the amount of fees (by names limited only by the imagination of car dealers) that dealers can add to their quoted prices. The phrase, dealer fee, is used only for convenience; other fee names commonly used are dealer prep, pre delivery inspection, tag agency, electronic filing, administrative, doc., documentary, notary and closing, etc. If a dealer thought he could get away with it, he could charge a million dollar dealer fee and F lorida would deem that legal! Florida requires that the dealer disclose on the invoice the following: This charge r epresents costs and profit to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning, and adjusting vehicles, and preparing documents related to the sale. The truth be known, added cost to the price of a product is defined as profit so the disclosure should simply read this charge represents profit to the dealer, period. I know that Consumer R eports is not aware of any of this and hopefully they will r ead this blog or Hometown N ews column and realize that they are inadvertently aiding and abetting dealers in unfair and deceptive advertising and sales practices.

ment, and during your r etirement years, you may want to focus on these challenges: Living longer than expected You probably dont think that living longer than expected is necessarily a bad thing. However, a longer-than-anticipated life span also carries with it the r isk of outliving your money. C onsequently, you may want to consider investment solutions that can provide y ou with an income stream that you cant outlive. Also, yo u ll need to be careful about how much you withdraw each year from your var ious retirement and investment accounts. Need for long-term care If you had to stay a few y ears in a nursing home, the cost could mount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. These expenses could jeopardize your financial security, so youll need to protect yourself. You could self-insure, but as that would be extremely costly, y ou may want to transfer the r isk to an insurance company. A financial professional can help explain your choices.

H eart Health Month H ypertension, often r eferred to as high blood pressure, affects millions of people across the globe. A ccording to the American H eart Association, more than 76 million adults in the U nited States alone have been diagnosed with high blood pressure. But even children and teens can suffer from hypertension, making it a formidable but largely preventable foe. U nderstanding high blood pressure, or HBP, may encourage adults and children alike to take steps to maintain a healthy blood pressure, which can reduce their risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease.What is HBP?HBP is often associated with men and women who are considered to be constantly on edge, nervous or hyperactive. But even laid back men, women and children can suffer from HBP. As a person's heart beats, it creates pressure that pushes blood through the body's arteries and veins. Those arteries are made of muscle and a semi-flexible tissue that stretches when the blood is pumped through them. The more forcefully that blood is pumped, the more that flexible tissue is stretched. When the tissue is stretched too much, a person is at an increased r isk of suffering from a host of problems, including blood clots, plaque buildup that can lead to heart attack and stroke, and tissue and organ damage from arteries that have narrowed or become blocked.Are there symptoms of HBP?The AHA notes that HBP is typically devoid of symptoms. So people suffering from HBP may not know it if they have not routinely had their blood pressure checked. Over the years many myths have prevailed r egarding HBP. Such myths can be dangerous, giving people a false sense of security regarding their blood pressure. For example, in the early 1900s it was assumed that people with high blood pressure experienced more frequent headaches than those with healthy blood pressure. How ever, a study published in the journal Neur ology found that people with high blood pressure we re significantly less likely to have headaches than those with healthy pressure r eadings. Nosebleeds have also been linked to high blood pressure, but one study found that 83 percent of patients treated for high blood pressure did not suffer from nosebleeds. D ebunking such myths is important, as it further emphasizes the need to r eceive routine blood pressure readings as the only r eliable means for men, women and children to determine if they have high, low or healthy blood pressure. Anyone experiencing frequent headaches or nosebleeds should consult a physician but should not assume such occurr ences are a byproduct of high blood pressure.Can certain foods help reduce high blood pressure?One rumor concerning HBP actually has some merit. A heart-healthy diet that includes the following foods can help men, women and children manage their blood pressure and reduce HBP if necessary: Blueberries: Blueberr ies contain anthocyanin, a natural compound that a r ecent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found can protect the body against HBP. Whole grain cereal: A Ha rv ard University study found that whole grain cereals that are high in fiber can reduce a person's risk of developing HBP. Beet juice: A study from Br itish researchers published by the AHA in its journal Hypertension found that a glass of beet juice can lower blood pressure in a matter of hours. Low-fat dairy products: A 2008 study that examined nearly 30,000 women at an average age of 54 found that those who consumed the most low-fat dairy products, including skim or low-fat milk, were significantly less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who consumed dairy products that were high in fat. HBP is a common problem that affects millions of people of all ages across the globe. There are several ways men, women and children can reduce their r isk of HBP and lower their blood pressure if it's already high. F ew people are unaware of heart disease and its potentially devastating effects. But many people may not know that the term "heart disease" is a blanket term used to describe several health problems related to the heart. A ccording to the World H ealth Organization, ischaemic heart disease, which is characterized by a r educed blood supply to the heart, is the leading cause of death across the globe. Though many conditions are characterized as ischaemic heart disease, many others are not, and the WHO notes that other heart conditions, including stroke, are also among the top 10 most deadly diseases in the world. The following is a rundown of some of the more common heart conditions, many of which can be prevented if men and women make the r ight lifestyle choices.AnginaAngina occurs when a person has chest pain or discomfort around their heart because the muscle is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood. Angina can be a b yproduct of elevated levels of stress or overexertion and may even be caused by clogged arteries. All cases of angina are not the same. Stable angina is the most common form, and usually follows a pattern that is common among patients. U nstable angina is less predictable, while variant angina, the rarest form of the condition, occurs while a person is at rest. Rest and medicine are at the root of treating angina, which is more easily treated once its cause has been determined.AtherosclerosisA therosclerosis is characterized by the buildup of fatty materials in the arterial walls. This fatty material can harden over time, restricting blood flow and resulting in calcium deposits. Daily exercise and a healthy diet void of high-fat, high-cholesterol foods are two ways to prevent or treat atherosclerosis.Cardiac ArrestCar diac arrest is a culmination of several heart conditions, including angina and atherosclerosis. Also known as a heart attack, cardiac arrest occurs when blood and oxygen are unable to reach the heart. Chest discomfort; discomfort in other areas of the upper body, including the arms, back, neck or jaw; shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort; and nausea or lightheadedness may all be indicators that a person is going into cardiac arrest.HypertensionAlso known as high blood pressure, hypertension is a r elatively common heart condition. Nearly every adult has likely received a blood pressure reading at one point in his life. That r eading measures the systolic pressure, which is the pressure created when the heart beats, and the diastolic pressure, which is the pressure in the heart when it is at r est. A blood pressure above 120 over 80 is considered high, and that high figure might be caused by salt and water levels in the body and the condition of the body's kidneys, nervous system and blood vessels, as well as the body's hormone levels. Tr eating hypertension is relatively simple, as a doctor will typically recommend some dietary changes and may even prescribe medication for those patients with especially high blood pressure.StrokeStr oke occurs when the blood supply to any part of the brain is interrupted. P otentially deadly, stroke can cause paralysis as well. Trouble speaking, loss of coordination and trouble moving limbs may be indicative of stroke, which is considered a medical emergency that re quires immediate medical help. The longer a person goes between the onset of a stroke and seeking treatment often determines the severity of the consequences. Mo re information on heart disease is available at www.heart.org.

C onnie Bass, a volunteer at House of Hope and one of three chairmen for the event, invited Clark to participate. Bass has kept in touch with Clark since they met on a cruise some 15 y ears ago where the writer was lecturing and believed she would be inclined to join the cause. S hes very philanthropically inclined, said Ms. B ass. If you dont ask, all people can say is no. Ms. Clark agreed to come to Stuart for the conversation at no charge when Bass told her about all that H ouse of Hope does for the community. Since 1984 House of H ope has offered help and hope to the people of Martin County who are experiencing hard times, Bass said.

Beautiful Florida weather makes any day a great day to fish It s a sunny 80 degrees with a little wind from the south east... Yes, its south F lorida. I love this place. Su rf anglers, it is a beautiful day but the pompano are not cooperating. There are lots of small fish; some anglers have caught 10 and not one in the limit. W ell we know the pompano are here so where are the big fish? Pompano are a school fish and they run in about the same size. Very seldom will you find a larger fish in the school or very seldom will find a small fish in a school of large but where there is one you will find the other. We would all like to say a longer cast will find the one you are looking for, but sometimes the fish you are looking for could be on the short side. If you are in a school of small fish try casting your bait beyond or just a short cast and let your bait set for a few moments that could be your answer. Im still waiting for some B lue fish reports but the small pomp's seem to be holding the attention. C ut bait is working for the blues fish. They are excellent table fare. Three to five pounds is perfect table size. I have heard about them at many beach access points. In the mix has been macs and jacks with plenty of rod pullers among them. Locate them with a piece of meat then you can cast a spoon. Theres still plenty of whiting and croaker out there, so you might say dinner is sure catch. Off shore, the dolphin have been a hard find. Im not sure why, the conditions are perfect. Polite seas make color lines easy to read and baits easy to locate. Have you tried adding your teaser to y our spread? Slow down and let your baits out further, run them closer, try adding a M ylar skirt to your baits. Dont be afraid to change things around. Fish that I have heard of have been at the 150-foot mark, so try r unning deeper. There have been some sails on the w eeds with plenty of snapper for the bottom anglers. C obia seemed to have spread out, but you can still find them in that 20/40 feet of water north of the Jensen B each, live baits are preferred. Keep an eye out for the permit, they are in the mix. Spanish Macs are a plenty south of the inlet, start a chum line with some glass minnows and the fish will come to you. Tr out are deep. Anglers are r eporting fish in channels and deep water, not a lot but fish. Most said it took a lot of effort to find and put one in the boat. S lot reds are in school, when one is on the rest scatter, so where did they go? P ay attention you know it will happen so watch the school, then you know where to drift, soft rubber baits we re tops. B lues and Jacks provided most of the action this week, they dont care when one is on the rest will come to see what he is eating, not sure about this group. S nook season opened on the first with no fanfare. I did not see many anglers, but those who did go using a flair hawk found fish. Oh w ell just another beautiful day in south F lorida.

Kanner Highway, Canal Point, in western Martin/Palm Beach Normally during the summer months, M other Nature leaves us with enough daily rain to keep our lawns green and plush with only a minimal amount of manual watering. M ost of this beneficial r ainfall falls during the months of June, July, August and September. The remainder of the year can often leave our lawns and yards with a serious deficiency of water. This either requires us to water our lawns by hand or use portable sprinklers. The problem with this is that y ou have to move the sprinklers around the yard in order to get even coverage. Another alternative is a home irrigation system. A well-planned, in-ground system can be easily controlled with a timer box and can even shut itself off when it rains to conserve water. The drawbacks of an inground system are maintenance and cost. Even a good system will require regular maintenance to maintain efficiency. The good news is that the system will eventually pay for itself over time with what you will save on landscape maintenance. To design a good system, y ou should start out with a map, drawn to scale, of the area you wish to irrigate. Be sure to include all the details including plants and buildings. Then, draw in the diagram of the route you are going to use for the PVC pipe. Mark off the spots where you will install your sprinkler heads and consider whether you need a full, half or quarter spray and also the distance needed to cover that segment. Be sure y our segments overlap to ensure you have no dead spots. You can draw this out on graph paper or you can buy special kits that guide y ou through the planning process. The next thing that must be considered is how many zo nes you will have on your system. If you try to put too many sprinkler heads on y our system, the water pressure may be too low to operate that zone correctly. Y ou may only want to put four or five sprinkler heads in one zone or even less if y ou have poor water pressure. The various zones will be rotated automatically by the electronic water timer. In fact, more zones give you more versatility when it comes to managing y our system. The best water source for y our system is to have a separate well and pump to feed water to your sprinklers but for some people this is not in the budget. You can use an existing well and pump that you use for your home water supply with good results. If you happen to have an onsite pond or water retention area, you can recycle this water by pumping directly from these sources. One important part that should be installed on your system is an automatic r ainfall override. These inexpensive devices automatically shut off your system when sufficient rain falls and satisfies the adjustable sensor. These devices not only save water and electricity but they also prevent your lawn from getting watered too heavily. In fact, they are required by code in many counties. There are three basic pumps that are most frequently used to power irrigation systems: A surface centrifugal pump, a jet pump and a submersible centrifugal pump. The most commonly used pump for home use is a jet pump. These pumps can be used for both shallow and deep w ell applications. For very deep well applications, a submersible centrifugal pump may be used. The disadvantage is if the pump needs to be serviced it has to be removed from the well. One last consideration is the quality of the water being pumped from the w ell. If the water has a lot of sediment or sand, it will be necessary to install a sand filter inline before the water r eaches the sprinkler heads. This will help prevent clogging of the sprinklers and will provide more enjoyable and trouble free operation of your system. The bottom line: A well designed water system can save you loads of time and take the worry out of getting the proper amounts of water to your lawn. In the long r un, it can pay for itself over time by saving you money on lawn maintenance. There is also one added bonus; y ou can install an inline device that will actually allow you to fertilize your lawn directly through the water system! This can be a r eal time saver and convenience option. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

MARTIN COUNTY For Patricia Morris, 11th and 12th grade reading teacher at Jensen Beach H igh School, it's always been about the students. S he loves them like her own and everyone knows it. It 's that passion for teaching that earned her Ma r tin County's Teacher of the Year award last Friday, for which she was selected from 22 nominees. "I just feel that the kids are the most important," Ms. Morris said. "I want them to be successful." The title was awarded at the Education Foundation of Martin County's Teacher of the Year Awards C elebration on Jan.31 at the Port St. Lucie Civic C enter, the Academy Awards for Martin County teachers. The event, sponsored by Publix Super Market Charities, Keiser University's College of Golf and S port Management, and Treasure Coast Urgent & Family Care also acknowledged Laura B akkedahl as the elementary school teacher of the year and Allison Fredericks as the middle school teacher of the year. Ms. Morris was the high school teacher of the year and when all three teachers were on stage, Ms. Morris was pronounced the overall winner. "I think I covered my mouth and said to myself, I think they just said my name. I couldn't believe it. I was thrilled, absolutely thrilled, but shocked," Ms. Morris said. Ms. Morris has taught in Martin County for T eacher of the Year honoredV olunteers neededThe Council on Aging of Ma r tin County is in need of volunteers to pack lunch supplies for Meals on Wheels clients.

This is the 27th year the YMCA has r affled off a house in the area, providing one lucky family with a brand new abode or $150,000 and thousands of others with YMCA scholarships. Ev ery $10 raffle ticket goes toward providing Treasure Coast children and families with scholarship dollars that they can use toward the 87 programs like gymnastics and tae kwon do or senior pilates and tai chi that the YMCA offers. "W e don't ever want to turn anyone away for an inability to pay," said R obin Sutherland, Easter House project director. "Every year we provide thousands of scholarships with the money we raise." That's what the Easter House raffle is truly all about. "I t' s not just about the house," Ms. S utherland said. "First and foremost we 'r e supporting the children and families of the Treasure Coast." That's what she has loved about her job for the many years she's been giving away Easter Houses for the YMCA. "I feel very privileged. I've changed 16 people's lives, but we've touched tens of thousands of children and families on the Treasure Coast." Last year, more than 60,000 raffle tickets were sold, raising more than $250,000. This year the goal is to sell 62,000 tickets for the house that is v alued at around $50,000 more than last year's. The house is 2,700 square feet with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage. It is located in the H ighlands Reserve Community in P alm City and is valued at $294,990. "I t' s a beautiful home in a great neighborhood," Ms. Sutherland said. The model house is on display and open for touring, but the actual house to be awarded to one lucky individual will be built after the drawing so the winner can select details like the color of the tile, cabinets and countertops. Of course, if the winner is happy with the home they already have, they can opt for the $150,000 cash prize instead. There's also a second prize this year that can only be won by purchasing three Easter House tickets at the same time. It is a 2014 H arley Davidson Dyna Switchback donated by Treasure Coast Harley D avidson and valued at $16,000. Ra ffle Tickets can be purchased by calling 877-WIN-YMCA (877-9469622) or online at YMCAeasterhouse.org. The house is open for tours seven days a week from 10:30 a.m. 5:30 p .m. and is located at 1753 S.W. Swallowtail Way in Palm City. Anyone hoping to win a beautiful new home, a bunch of cash or a shiny new motorcycle has until April 17, the day of the drawing, to purchase tickets. S utherland is also looking for volunteers to man the house and sell tickets. Interested parties can call her directly at (772) 260-7878.

Lifetouch, a national school and family photogr aphy company, invited educators from all over the U.S. to participate in a M emory Mission to Constanza, Dominican Republic. In 2011 and 2012, program volunteers built an elementary school alongside local workers and this y ear Ms. Cameron helped build a vocational school for the students. M ost Dominican nationals don't have the option to go to a university, so a vocational school is their best bet to develop skills and be a productive member of their community, Ms. C ameron explained. Ms. Cameron has been on seven similar trips to va r ious countries before, but this is the first where she actually built something from scratch. She's painted schools in M alaysia, Turkey and Mo r occo and worked on turtle preservation projects in Costa Rico, among others, but now she can say that construction is her favorite. "F or me it's really the sense of accomplishment," Ms. Cameron said. S he mixed cement and erected block walls and worked with rebar and shoveled dirt and when she left there was a school, much more than the simple framework that stood in its place when she first arrived. B ut any service projects are good service projects and she is dedicated to being part of one every summer. She was thrilled to go on an extra one this January thanks to funding from Lifetouch. "I 'm r idiculously passionate about going and doing these trips and helping people," Ms. Cameron said. S he knows the places she visits often don't have the money or resources to complete such large projects on their own and it's her pleasure to help. But it's not just the lives of those she's helping that are touched; she was, too. These trips put my life in perspective and this one r eally sledge hammered me ov er the head with perspective," Ms. Cameron said. The island is absolutely beautiful but the poverty is unbelievable." S he said it makes her thankful for everything she has.

The Captain Planet Foundation was created to support hands-on environmental projects for youth and awarded $1,137 to sixth grade science teacher Melissa Dubois to be used for her brand new Green Thumb Club. "O ur goal is to create this beautiful outdoor learning center," Ms. Dubois said about the brand new program she will be implementing at the Middle School. It will be a complete outdoor learning lab where teachers can educate students about insects, climate change, sustainable gardening, even composting via a hands-on approach outside the classroom. Ms. DuBois is partnering with sixth grade science teacher Kirsi Johnson who r eceived a similar grant for her Native Keepers program through the Education F oundation of Martin County. Together they will be able to create a complete outdoor learning lab with a wide variety of native plants and vegetation. "K irsi and I are really excited to start the first outdoor learning lab filled with gardening and environmental lessons that will keep our students excited about making the grade," Ms. DuBois said. It will offer a complete gardening experience for the students and offer them a plethora of learning opportunities outside the classr oom, she said. It 's a natural fit for Ms. Du B ois who has a vegetable garden and seeds germinating in her windowsills at home. She loves teaching outdoors and is excited to share her passion for gardening with the students. The program also kicked off Anderson Middle School's participation in the Green School Program and exemplifies the district's C ommon Core standards by combining multiple subjects in a real-world learning situation. "I t' s a huge part in us earning points towards becoming a green school," Ms. DuBois said. "And gardening is the perfect way to integrate science with reading and math." S tudents in sixth through eighth grade will get to learn in the garden during class time, but can also join the Green Thumb Club and play and plant in the garden after school hours every Wednesday. Ms. DuBois just ordered supplies for the garden, including eight raised beds, tons of seeds, soil, gardening tools and informational books and many of the students can't wait until they arrive and the fun begins on F ebruary 19. They ask me every day, When's it gonna start, when's it gonna start?'" Ms. Du Bo is said. "I think it's going to be very valuable." Ms. DuBois is still looking for parents and master gardeners to volunteer for an hour at the after school club on Wednesday and local companies to donate items like stepping stones, pebbles and soil so the students can beautify the gardens. Anyone interested can call Ms. DuBois at Anderson M iddle School at (772) 2217100, Ext. 209.By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsKnowF rom page A1

When you're working to achieve your financial objectives, y ou will encounter obstacles. S ome of these can be anticipated for example, you won't be able to invest as much as you want for r etirement because you have to pay for your mortgage. O ther challenges can't be easily anticipated, but you can still plan for them and y ou should. Obviously, the word unexpected," by definition, implies an unlimited number of possibilities. However, at different stages of your life, y ou may want to watch for some "expected" unexpected developments. F or example, during your working years, be prepared for the following: Emergency expenses If y ou needed a major car or home repair, could you handle it? What about a temporary job loss? These events are costly especially if you are forced to dip into y our long-term investments to pay for them. To help guard against these threats, try to build an emergency fund containing six to 12 months' worth of living expenses, held in a liquid, low-risk account. Investment risk and market volatility Extreme price swings are unpredictable, and they can affect y our investment success. To defend yourself against wild gyrations in the market, build a diversified portfolio containing quality investments. While diversification, by itself, can't protect against loss or guarantee profits, it can help reduce the effect of volatility on your portfolio. And here's one more thing y ou can do to cope with the ups and downs of investing: M aintain a long-term perspective. By doing so, you won't be tempted to overreact to short-term downturns. Long-term disability One-third of all people between the ages of 30 and 64 will become disabled at some point, according to the Health I nsurance Association of America. Disabilities can be economically devastating. As part of your benefits package, y our employer may offer some disability insurance, but y ou may need to supplement it with private coverage. Premature death None of us can really predict our longevity. If something happens to you, would your family be able to stay in your home? Could your children still attend college? To protect these goals, you need adequate life insurance. As you approach retireF or 75 years, Home Paramount Pest Control has been eliminating pests from homes and corporations. It started with a single office in Baltimore, Md., and has grown to 32 locations in six states, including one in Stuart. Pa tricia Song is now the president, having taken over from her father in 2008, who took over from his father in the 70s. "I always felt that the family business game me the opportunity to do exciting work and to continue the work my grandfather started," said Ms. S ong, who originally considered going into law. B ut she's proud of the company and how it's grown, exceeding the pace of the industry with its full service termite and pest control and outstanding customer service. "W e' re a leader in pest control," Ms. Song said. S he attributes that success to many factors, including the company's longevity and stability, their highly-trained team of inspectors, and their scientifically-backed products and services. A team of entomologists designed the protocols for the company and ensures that the techniques and programs H ome Paramount Pest Control utilizes begin with an understanding of pest behavior and biology. The company offers standard and "green" programs for a full range of pest control and prevention, which many S outh Florida residents wouldn't live without. This market has such significant pest pressure," Ms. S ong said. "We saw an opportunity in the market to provide a line of professional services that the people of the Tr easure Coast would appreciate." In addition to full-service options, the Stuart location is unique in that it also offers r etail sales so do-it-yourself r esidents have the option of tackling their pest control problems using a professional product. F or those who prefer to let the professionals take care of things, however, Home Paramount Pest Control offers free, no-obligation inspections to let residents know that they're there to help. "I love being able to ease [customers'] pain when they come in and have a pest control problem of any kind," said P atrick Powers, Home Paramount Pest Control inspector.

Local teen wins national contest MARTINCOUNTY Lily Ca r done has always been a hardworking teenager. She volunteers at her church, maintained a 5.95 GPA even after back surgery last year, and can now call herself the winner of ABC's Make Me a S tar competition. The nationwide competition accepts audition tapes from teenagers all over the country hoping to jump-start their acting career. Lily heard about the contest from a friend and decided rather last minute to take part. S he took what little time she had after school, hair still a bit unruly from a long day of classes, and filmed herself r eciting the script that ABC provided. A month later, she was thrilled to find out she was a semi-finalist and three weeks after that, one of four finalists. "I t was crazy. From the beginning we didn't expect anything from it," Lily said. When I found out I was a semifinalist I was like, they liked my tape, frizzy hair and all!" H er second audition tape was posted online, giving friends and family a chance to vote for her. She and her family posted a link to her entry on Facebook and Twitter and Martin County High School, where Lily attends as a sophomore, even promoted it in their news. All of her hard work paid off. On Jan. 31 executives from ABC contacted Lily via S kype to let her know she had won the competition. "O h my goodness, I was so happy," said Lily's mom De bbi Cardone who was squealing in the background as Lily got her good news. Lily was also thrilled and surprised, exuberant that ABC liked her tape. In addition to the compliment she'll be receiving $10,000 and a six-month holding contract with ABC that may get her a part in a TV show or promotion for the station. It might mean she'll get a chance to head to Los Angeles. That would be really exciting. It would be an amazing experience," Lily said. Sh e' s been acting since she was 5 and never thought much would come of it, but as she got older she developed a passion for it. "I just love it. It's something that comes naturally to me, I guess," Lily said. "I like that I'm able to become somebody else." Sh e' s been in commercials, short films, even an independent feature film called "A s Night Falls," but her Make Me a Star win will help her along to the acting career she desires. "I am so proud of her. She tries hard at whatever she does," Mrs. Cardone said. "H er future is going to be very bright."

So r optimist International of Stuart will be hosting TRUST in Dating: a workshop for teen girls and their parents about teen relations using safe tactics.

Unearned income?Why can people who sit around and have kids they can't take care of get so much money back from the government? I think the tax credits for income that isn't earned is r idiculous. S it on lazy behinds all day collecting welfare and food stamps and have the government pay for medical expenses, and then cash in on their tax returns. It sounds like a pretty easy way of life to me.Public transportationAs the area grows, more teens and elderly people are in need of transportation. It would be in the best interest of the entire community if there were better forms of public transportation for these two populations to use. Mo re teens and older people cause accidents, so why not give them an alternate way to get around? Smoking standardsThere are many occasions when I see a cook or clerk outside a restaurant of place of business smoking, only to come back inside, stinking like nicotine, and handle food or clothes. It 's disgusting, and more business owners should set rules and regulations regarding smoking during business hours.Regarding food-stamp useI have to respond to the person who complained about people paying with food stamps. Things are not always as they seem. I lost a job that paid $88,000 a year in 2013. My husband is on disability, so I was the primary breadwinner. Since then, our house has lost v alue to the point that it is worth less than what we paid for it 10 years ago, and we are in foreclosure. U sing all of my retirement money, we tried to start a business because at older than 50 years of age, I could not find a job. We closed that business last fall. U nemployment benefits have run out. Our credit cards are charged up to the limit trying to pay our water bill, electric bill and gas bill, not to buy "extras" like clothing! The "new" N issan SUV that I drive was purchased when our income was more than $100,000 a year and we will probably have to let it be repossessed because I can't sell enough of our household goods on eBay to make the next car payment. I've had exactly two job interviews, with no one even bothering to call me back to let me know that they weren't interested. I've worked since I was 15 years old, and paid into a system that I never thought I would need. But now I do need it, and y ou know what? I'm damn well going to use it. So before you judge someone who is using food stamps to keep their family fed you need to know the story behind it. The only reason I know the woman in the story wasn't me is because I've already sold or pawned all my gold jewelry, what little of it I had.One person's opinionThe president did his state of the union address, and let's see he sold the American people a big lie and the ones who voted him in are the ones who think others need to pay for them. We need a change in this country. Let's quit giving money out to those who produce kids just to be on welfare and cut out Social Security Disability, two of the most abused systems we have. And the federal government wants this. Not only is this absolutely non-essential but it does not stimulate anything. Quit giving these people money to help them make them take classes to gain work skills. Sitting at home and listing to the poor variety of noise that they do does not educate them. The liberals have it all wrong. Giving these people money is not an answer, it adds to the problem. These people require education. And Fort Pierce is so poverty stricken with people who are dependent upon the government. There's not going to be jobs here when you have an uneducated public. When the money's gone then where will these people who came to rely on welfare or any other government support be? Hmm, good question. If yo u' re someone who sees a female in a grocery store with a few kids with a very glum look on her face, trick her into answering a question on how she affords those kids. In today's economy you have to work 2-3 jobs. If they're buying junk good chance they're not doing that well. I'm all for starving them out. Perhaps you won't see them driving a nice ride or wearing nice shoes. That's all there wardrobe is their idea of showing off. Perhaps a few gold teeth too. These are the individuals who fail to think for themselves. F rom a server's point of viewWe hear a lot about bad service from people who haven't ever been in the hospitality industry nor worked in service jobs such as waitress/food server. I also hear from a lot of experts on motherhood from people who haven't ever been one. W aitressing is a bit like being mother to a mob sometimes. Y ou have to subdue the loud and potentially dangerous ones before you can service the quiet and peaceful ones. We're not ignoring you; we're trying to do our job, which is, first things first. If y ou can give us an order for food simply and completely before you sit down, we will grab our pads and take that. But if you've caught us in a busy moment, there are times when y ou have to wait. Many people do prefer fast food restaurants for this reason. Mo r nings are especially hectic at a family restaurant, just as in a home with lots of kids. It is one of the most difficult types of businesses to do well and endure in. The drink order taker and the food server usually have two separate jobs, in order to serve you more promptly. If y ou are assertive and say, "Hi, I would like such-and-so, make it such-and-so," the usual response by the server is to try to make your request known to the cook as quickly as possible. She may have handed him the order already, and y ou don't even know it. We cannot be as fast as the assembly line at Wendy's, but, hopeful, you do enjoy the personal and friendly smile and attention from a real person instead of a plastic bozo head! Tr aditional family restaurants are dedicatedly trying to hang in there against the tide of the "fast food" restaurant. We are distressed at times about things that have to do with our own personal lives and not a reflection on our feelings for you.I'm a senior citizen, except at the restaurantI'm 56 years old. I can go to the senior citizens center and be admitted as a senior citizen. I can go and get a haircut and get a dollar off for being a senior citizen. Y et I am not considered a senior citizen when I go to some r estaurants. Their requirement for being a senior citizen is 60 years old, for some reason. I cannot go to a lunch at a church for the same reason. So why are there different age eligibilities, when one age should determine whether we are senior citizens, or not. As far as I am concerned, there should be some sort of law concerning what is the age of senior citizen and all stores, churches, eating places and such would be the same age and not to be whatever age they want. Thank you for your attention.America, are we still beautiful?"Pretty is as pretty does." My grandmother was very fond of that saying, as was my mother. And I suppose my greatgrandmother taught it to her daughter, and so on. America was beautiful once, that is, until superfluous pride ran off with its integrity. We have cracks in our foundation. And we're building ourselves bigger and more upon a slippery mountain slope. The inevitable muddy landslide has already begun, yet so many builders the "movers and shakers'' as they like to call themselves are so enthralled with heathen-heady pleasure that they don't seem to notice they are about to demolish the whole project that began in the 1770s. If we as a nation, do not fetch ourselves up sharply, it could all be over for U.S. in about 50 years. N othing will matter for me, myself, and I in 50 years. I'm probably not going to be alive past 100 years of age, but what about my grandchildren? What about yours? R eligious freedom: It's a wonderful thing. Remember the foundation? But the words say, "... Freedom of religion," not freedom from religion, and there is a big difference. No re ligion? Anarchy? How's that working for U.S.? Pick a religion, any religion, and get back in the box, kids. A utonomy is something you can have after you learn, study and practice the rules for living a safe, sound, practical and productive life. R eligion contains the rules. Spirituality is the product. Religion times work equals right spiritual living. You kids want the spiritual rewards, but you don't want to follow the rules laid down by all of your forefathers. It won't work that way! H onor thy father and mother. Don't reinvent the wheel. And ask yourselves, when is enough, enough? Iwas backing up some data a while back to an external USB drive, when I noticed a behavior that is not uncommon at all. As I began backing up the contents of a rather bloated My Documents folder (gigabytes worth of data), during the copy process I noticed the "estimated time r emaining" figure was jumping all over the place. It started out saying something like 48 minutes r emaining, and then jumped down to 30, 18 and then 11 minutes. As I watched the file copy process progress, I noticed the estimated time remaining figure stayed at 11 minutes for more than an hour. The progress bar was moving slowly to the right, and just as I thought the file transfer was just about over, the progress bar jumped back about a third of the way across. The time remaining figure jumped to a whopping 25,464,387 minutes. Consulting my trusty calculator watch, I figured that 25,464,387 minutes was the equivalent of 17,683 days or 48 years. No, that couldn't be r ight. As I watched, the number bounced around some, dropping from the incredibly high 25 million mark and dropping to more manageable numbers, such as 45 minutes, 28 and once again 11 minutes and there it stayed for another 45 minutes. I finally got fed up with watching (it's like watching paint dry) and shut off the monitor, so I don't know when it actually finished. But when I came back to it in the morning, the file copy was complete. And it didn't take 48 years. But it got me thinking; what is this estimated time remaining business all about, and can that figure ever be trusted? I've certainly seen that behavior before with other file copy operations, downloads from the internet, CD burning and other similar procedures, and I've always taken that number with a grain of salt, but that 25 million figure caught my attention. What is going on with this picture? W ell, in order to understand why that number fluctuates so wildly, it's necessary to keep in mind that, on any given computer, what's happening at any given moment is not necessarily the way things are going to happen in the next moment. So the "estimated" part of "estimated time r emaining" is just that an estimate based on the conditions taken at that particular time slice. And what happens, from secondto-second is those conditions are changing. Rapidly. What that means is when the computer starts a file transfer; it grabs hold of a chunk of data and looks to see how much bandwidth is available. Then it bases its estimate of how long it will take on that. But that estimate does not take into account things such as the ov erhead activity between the device and the computer and how much of the buffer is still available, etc., you know, lots of other technical things that are happening at the same time as the data transfer. Let me rephrase it like this: As soon as the file transfer starts, all the figures the computer based its' estimate on change, because of the way computers do things. What that boils down to is the estimated time for transfer is rarely accurate, because the conditions are constantly changing and can't be relied on, especially when it predicts that it will take 48 years. One question that is bound to come up is: "Is this strictly a Windows issue?" and to that I would have to say no. I've observed the same behavior on my Macs as well as my Windows boxes. So that, in a nutshell, is an explanation for the neveraccurate estimated time r emaining issue that I'm sure w e've all experienced at one time or another. I would personally like to see them do away with the estimated time figure and just stick with a graphical progress meter. That would make a whole lot more sense than the arbitrary numbers we get now, and they are easier to read at a glance.

I have written columns for this blog and Hometown N ews. I've advocated on my r adio show for Consumer R eports. I considered them the single most reliable source for consumers selecting the best products and sellers of those products, and I still do. S ince 1936 Consumer R eports has set the example for unbiased, scientific evaluations and opinions on virtually every product Americans buy. They report, not only on products and services, but those who sell those products and services. They accept no advertising or any other consideration from companies. In fact, they will not even allow a company to use their name if they have endorsed a product of that company. When Consumer R eports recommends a product, you can be sure that it is their honest belief that that the product is a good one. Everyone is entitled to one honest mistake and I have to believe that this was the case with Consumer R eports. C onsumer Reports offers an auto-buying service to its members and charges $12 to give their members "Consumer Reports bottom line price" to buy any new car. They sublet this to an outside car buying service, TrueCar, which provides this data. In fact, TrueCar provides this service directly to car buyers for no charge at www.TrueCa r .com whereas CR charges $12 for each car you want to get the "best" price on. In full disclosure, I'm a member of Tr ueCar's national dealer council. I've written about Tr ueCar in Hometown News and my blog, highly recommending them, just as I have C onsumer Reports. TrueCar, as a result of my advising and urging, will be moving soon to require all car dealer members of the TrueCar program to more clearly disclose the "true," bottom line price. C onsumer Reports is inadvertently leading their members who purchase what they believe to be the "bottom line price" a price which is actually much higher than the bottom line. In the example above, the estimated dealer price" of $22,253 with "estimated savings: $4,782" on a new 2014 Toyota Prius, is actually $23, 252, almost onethousand dollars higher! The estimated savings are only $3,783, not $4,782. The extra $999 that the dealer adds to the bottom line price is disclosed in the pricing that CR gives their members, but it's disclosed in the fine print and below the focal point of their documentation which states, "This is y our Estimated Dealer Price" and the price is featured in bold print and color. Some might say that as long as the extra dealer profit not included in the "bottom line" price is disclosed in the fine print, CR's done nothing wrong. First of all, this is not the way Consumer Reports does business. CR is vehement against fine print ads that trick buyers. This issue was actually brought to my attention by a very well educated, intelligent consumer who was tricked by this very CR "bottom line" price. She brought it to the attention of her mother (who happened to be my wife) because she thought my price (I'm a Toyota dealer) was higher than the other two dealers' prices. If an intelligent woman that is a college graduate and investment banker can be duped by C onsumer Reports' "bottom line price, what chance has the average consumer? F lorida law requires that that dealer fees aka "Dealer Pr ocessing Fees" and many other names be included in the advertised price of the vehicle. I'm not a lawyer, but I think a good argument could be made that this information emailed to a prospective car buyer could be construed to be an advertisement. This particular dealer adds $999 to the Consumer Reports' "bottom line price", but he could add as much as he likes. In fact, Florida law has no cap on the amount of fees (by names limited only by the imagination of car dealers) that dealers can add to their quoted prices. The phrase, dealer fee, is used only for convenience; other fee names commonly used are dealer prep, pre delivery inspection, tag agency, electronic filing, administrative, doc., documentary, notary and closing, etc. If a dealer thought he could get away with it, he could charge a million dollar dealer fee and F lorida would deem that legal! Florida requires that the dealer disclose on the invoice the following: "This charge r epresents costs and profit to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning, and adjusting vehicles, and preparing documents related to the sale." The truth be known, added cost to the price of a product is defined as "profit" so the disclosure should simply read this charge represents profit to the dealer, period. I know that Consumer R eports is not aware of any of this and hopefully they will r ead this blog or Hometown N ews column and realize that they are inadvertently aiding and abetting dealers in unfair and deceptive advertising and sales practices.

ment, and during your r etirement years, you may want to focus on these challenges: Living longer than expected You probably don't think that "living longer than expected" is necessarily a bad thing. However, a longer-than-anticipated life span also carries with it the r isk of outliving your money. C onsequently, you may want to consider investment solutions that can provide y ou with an income stream that you can't outlive. Also, yo u' ll need to be careful about how much you withdraw each year from your va r ious retirement and investment accounts.

These expenses could jeopardize your financial security, so you'll need to protect yourself. You could self-insure," but as that would be extremely costly, y ou may want to "transfer the r isk" to an insurance company. A financial professional can help explain your choices.

H eart Health Month H ypertension, often r eferred to as high blood pressure, affects millions of people across the globe. A ccording to the American H eart Association, more than 76 million adults in the U nited States alone have been diagnosed with high blood pressure. But even children and teens can suffer from hypertension, making it a formidable but largely preventable foe. U nderstanding high blood pressure, or HBP, may encourage adults and children alike to take steps to maintain a healthy blood pressure, which can reduce their risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease.What is HBP?HBP is often associated with men and women who are considered to be constantly on edge, nervous or hyperactive. But even laid back men, women and children can suffer from HBP. As a person's heart beats, it creates pressure that pushes blood through the body's arteries and veins. Those arteries are made of muscle and a semi-flexible tissue that stretches when the blood is pumped through them. The more forcefully that blood is pumped, the more that flexible tissue is stretched. When the tissue is stretched too much, a person is at an increased r isk of suffering from a host of problems, including blood clots, plaque buildup that can lead to heart attack and stroke, and tissue and organ damage from arteries that have narro w ed or become blocked.Are there symptoms of HBP?The AHA notes that HBP is typically devoid of symptoms. So people suffering from HBP may not know it if they have not routinely had their blood pressure checked. Over the years many myths have prevailed r egarding HBP. Such myths can be dangerous, giving people a false sense of security regarding their blood pressure. For example, in the early 1900s it was assumed that people with high blood pressure experienced more frequent headaches than those with healthy blood pressure. How ever, a study published in the journal Neur ology found that people with high blood pressure we re significantly less likely to have headaches than those with healthy pressure r eadings. Nosebleeds have also been linked to high blood pressure, but one study found that 83 percent of patients treated for high blood pressure did not suffer from nosebleeds. D ebunking such myths is important, as it further emphasizes the need to r eceive routine blood pressure readings as the only r eliable means for men, women and children to determine if they have high, low or healthy blood pressure. Anyone experiencing frequent headaches or nosebleeds should consult a physician but should not assume such occurr ences are a byproduct of high blood pressure.Can certain foods help reduce high blood pressure?One rumor concerning HBP actually has some merit. A heart-healthy diet that includes the following foods can help men, women and children manage their blood pressure and reduce HBP if necessary: Blueberries: Blueberr ies contain anthocyanin, a natural compound that a r ecent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found can protect the body against HBP. Whole grain cereal: A Ha rv ard University study found that whole grain cereals that are high in fiber can reduce a person's risk of developing HBP. Beet juice: A study from Br itish researchers published by the AHA in its journal Hypertension found that a glass of beet juice can lower blood pressure in a matter of hours. Low-fat dairy products: A 2008 study that examined nearly 30,000 women at an average age of 54 found that those who consumed the most low-fat dairy products, including skim or low-fat milk, were significantly less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who consumed dairy products that were high in fat. HBP is a common problem that affects millions of people of all ages across the globe. There are several ways men, women and children can reduce their r isk of HBP and lower their blood pressure if it's already high. F ew people are unaware of heart disease and its potentially devastating effects. But many people may not know that the term "heart disease" is a blanket term used to describe several health problems related to the heart. A ccording to the World H ealth Organization, ischaemic heart disease, which is characterized by a r educed blood supply to the heart, is the leading cause of death across the globe. Though many conditions are characterized as ischaemic heart disease, many others are not, and the WHO notes that other heart conditions, including stroke, are also among the top 10 most deadly diseases in the world. The following is a rundown of some of the more common heart conditions, many of which can be prevented if men and women make the r ight lifestyle choices.AnginaAngina occurs when a person has chest pain or discomfort around their heart because the muscle is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood. Angina can be a b yproduct of elevated levels of stress or overexertion and may even be caused by clogged arteries. All cases of angina are not the same. Stable angina is the most common form, and usually follows a pattern that is common among patients. U nstable angina is less predictable, while variant angina, the rarest form of the condition, occurs while a person is at rest. Rest and medicine are at the root of treating angina, which is more easily treated once its cause has been determined.AtherosclerosisA therosclerosis is characterized by the buildup of fatty materials in the arterial walls. This fatty material can harden over time, restricting blood flow and resulting in calcium deposits. Daily exercise and a healthy diet void of high-fat, high-cholesterol foods are two ways to prevent or treat atherosclerosis.Cardiac ArrestCa r diac arrest is a culmination of several heart conditions, including angina and atherosclerosis. Also known as a heart attack, cardiac arrest occurs when blood and oxygen are unable to reach the heart. Chest discomfort; discomfort in other areas of the upper body, including the arms, back, neck or jaw; shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort; and nausea or lightheadedness may all be indicators that a person is going into cardiac arrest.HypertensionAlso known as high blood pressure, hypertension is a r elatively common heart condition. Nearly every adult has likely received a blood pressure reading at one point in his life. That r eading measures the systolic pressure, which is the pressure created when the heart beats, and the diastolic pressure, which is the pressure in the heart when it is at r est. A blood pressure above 120 over 80 is considered high, and that high figure might be caused by salt and water levels in the body and the condition of the body's kidneys, nervous system and blood vessels, as well as the body's hormone levels. Tr eating hypertension is relatively simple, as a doctor will typically recommend some dietary changes and may even prescribe medication for those patients with especially high blood pressure.StrokeSt r oke occurs when the blood supply to any part of the brain is interrupted. P otentially deadly, stroke can cause paralysis as well. Trouble speaking, loss of coordination and trouble moving limbs may be indicative of stroke, which is considered a medical emergency that re quires immediate medical help. The longer a person goes between the onset of a stroke and seeking treatment often determines the severity of the consequences. Mo re information on heart disease is available at www.heart.org.

"S he's very philanthropically inclined," said Ms. B ass. "If you don't ask, all people can say is no." Ms. Clark agreed to come to Stuart for the conversation at no charge when Bass told her about all that H ouse of Hope does for the community. "S ince 1984 House of H ope has offered help and hope to the people of Martin County who are experiencing hard times," Bass said.

Beautiful Florida weather makes any day a great day to fish It' s a sunny 80 degrees with a little wind from the south east... Yes, it's south F lorida. I love this place. Su rf anglers, it is a beautiful day but the pompano are not cooperating. There are lots of small fish; some anglers have caught 10 and not one in the limit. W ell we know the pompano are here so where are the big fish? Pompano are a school fish and they run in about the same size. Very seldom will you find a larger fish in the school or very seldom will find a small fish in a school of large but where there is one you will find the other. We would all like to say a longer cast will find the one you are looking for, but sometimes the fish you are looking for could be on the short side. If you are in a school of small fish try casting your bait beyond or just a short cast and let your bait set for a few moments that could be your answer. I'm still waiting for some B lue fish reports but the small pomp's seem to be holding the attention. C ut bait is working for the blues fish. They are excellent table fare. Three to five pounds is perfect table size. I have heard about them at many beach access points. In the mix has been mac's and jacks with plenty of rod pullers among them. Locate them with a piece of meat then you can cast a spoon. There's still plenty of whiting and croaker out there, so you might say dinner is sure catch. Off shore, the dolphin have been a hard find. I'm not sure why, the conditions are perfect. Polite seas make color lines easy to read and baits easy to locate. Have you tried adding your teaser to y our spread? Slow down and let your baits out further, run them closer, try adding a M ylar skirt to your baits. Don't be afraid to change things around. Fish that I have heard of have been at the 150-foot mark, so try r unning deeper. There have been some sails on the w eeds with plenty of snapper for the bottom anglers. C obia seemed to have spread out, but you can still find them in that 20/40 feet of water north of the Jensen B each, live baits are preferred. Keep an eye out for the permit, they are in the mix. Spanish Mac's are a plenty south of the inlet, start a chum line with some glass minnows and the fish will come to you. Tr out are deep. Anglers are r eporting fish in channels and deep water, not a lot but fish. Most said it took a lot of effort to find and put one in the boat. S lot reds are in school, when one is on the rest scatter, so where did they go? P ay attention you know it will happen so watch the school, then you know where to drift, soft rubber baits we re tops. B lues and Jacks provided most of the action this week, they don't care when one is on the rest will come to see what he is eating, not sure about this group. S nook season opened on the first with no fanfare. I did not see many anglers, but those who did go using a flair hawk found fish. Oh w ell just another beautiful day in south F lorida.

Kanner Highway, Canal Point, in western Martin/Palm Beach Normally during the summer months, M other Nature leaves us with enough daily rain to keep our lawns green and plush with only a minimal amount of manual watering. M ost of this beneficial r ainfall falls during the months of June, July, August and September. The remainder of the year can often leave our lawns and yards with a serious deficiency of water. This either requires us to water our lawns by hand or use portable sprinklers. The problem with this is that y ou have to move the sprinklers around the yard in order to get even coverage. Another alternative is a home irrigation system. A well-planned, in-ground system can be easily controlled with a timer box and can even shut itself off when it rains to conserve water. The drawbacks of an inground system are maintenance and cost. Even a good system will require regular maintenance to maintain efficiency. The good news is that the system will eventually pay for itself over time with what you will save on landscape maintenance. To design a good system, y ou should start out with a map, drawn to scale, of the area you wish to irrigate. Be sure to include all the details including plants and buildings. Then, draw in the diagram of the route you are going to use for the PVC pipe. Mark off the spots where you will install your sprinkler heads and consider whether you need a full, half or quarter spray and also the distance needed to cover that segment. Be sure y our segments overlap to ensure you have no dead spots. You can draw this out on graph paper or you can buy special kits that guide y ou through the planning process. The next thing that must be considered is how many zo nes you will have on your system. If you try to put too many sprinkler heads on y our system, the water pressure may be too low to operate that zone correctly. Y ou may only want to put four or five sprinkler heads in one zone or even less if y ou have poor water pressure. The various zones will be rotated automatically by the electronic water timer. In fact, more zones give you more versatility when it comes to managing y our system. The best water source for y our system is to have a separate well and pump to feed water to your sprinklers but for some people this is not in the budget. You can use an existing well and pump that you use for your home water supply with good results. If you happen to have an onsite pond or water retention area, you can recycle this water by pumping directly from these sources. One important part that should be installed on your system is an automatic r ainfall override. These inexpensive devices automatically shut off your system when sufficient rain falls and satisfies the adjustable sensor. These devices not only save water and electricity but they also prevent your lawn from getting watered too heavily. In fact, they are required by code in many counties. There are three basic pumps that are most frequently used to power irrigation systems: A surface centrifugal pump, a jet pump and a submersible centrifugal pump. The most commonly used pump for home use is a jet pump. These pumps can be used for both shallow and deep w ell applications. For very deep well applications, a submersible centrifugal pump may be used. The disadvantage is if the pump needs to be serviced it has to be removed from the well. One last consideration is the quality of the water being pumped from the w ell. If the water has a lot of sediment or sand, it will be necessary to install a sand filter inline before the water r eaches the sprinkler heads. This will help prevent clogging of the sprinklers and will provide more enjoyable and trouble free operation of your system. The bottom line: A well designed water system can save you loads of time and take the worry out of getting the proper amounts of water to your lawn. In the long r un, it can pay for itself over time by saving you money on lawn maintenance. There is also one added bonus; y ou can install an inline device that will actually allow you to fertilize your lawn directly through the water system! This can be a r eal time saver and convenience option. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.
