Donation brings project to middle schoolMARTIN COUNTY Where there we re once mismatched, mildewed and incomplete texts on student's desks in Eleuthera, Bahamas will now sit gently used, updated and complete sets of learning materials thanks to efforts from a Martin C ounty teacher. W ith changes to the Common Co re curriculum and new books to go along with it, there were suddenly hundreds of books, only a few years old, which no longer had any purpose. T iffany Reddick wasn't the only one desirous of keeping those mater ials out of a landfill, but she was the one who offered a solution. T wice she has gone on mission trips over summer break to the B ahamas and served at a local primary school. She noticed while cleaning out the school's library that their books were old and in poor r epair. She knew Martin County Schools would be r eceiving new ones soon, so she asked if the Eleuthera schools could benefit from Martin C ounty's old ones. "I t seemed criminal to throw all those books out," Ms. Reddick said. The answer was a resounding yes. So when she returned home this summer, she brought the proposal to the administration atT eacher organizes effort to send books to students in BahamasA $20,000 donation from a local philanthropist made it possible for Tykes and Teens to finally bring Project Northland to Indiantown Middle School. It 's the same alcohol and drug prevention program already implemented in the other four middle schools in Ma r tin County. S ince 2008, Indiantown M iddle School has been the only Martin County Middle School without such a program. Tykes and Teens, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving area children and their families, heads up programs in the other schools, but never had funding for Indiantown, until now. "W e' re r eally excited to be able to expand the program to the western end of the community," said Darcy F lierl, Tykes and Teens Director of Prevention. The donation for Project No r thland, a comprehensive prevention program designed to modify community attitudes toward youth substance use, came from Elisabeth Lahti. Her name is synonymous with charitable giving in Martin County where the library in I ndiantown bears her name. "S he is a generous and wonderfully kind individual," said Paula Hundt, Tykes and T eens director of development It was Ms. Hundt who spoke to Lahti last year and introduced her to Project No r thland. When she explained that Indiantown had a need that a lack of funding wouldn't allow Tykes and Teens to fill, Ms. Lahti jumped at the chance to help. The $20,000 will go toward purchasing books in several languages, educating teachers and providing funding so the students can take part in community-wide projects like the Project Northland P oster Contest. The program will only be implemented in the sixth grade this year, but will continue into the seventh and eighth grades in the next two y ears. The students will explore myths of underage drinking, learn to say no to drugs and alcohol and r esearch the effects of alcohol on the teen brain. "E very young person can benefit from having the corr ect information," Ms. Hundt said. "We think it's a great start for the children and look forward to growing the classes each year." Ms. Flierl said the $20,000 will go quite a way toward providing the students with materials and counseling, but Tykes and Teens is always looking for new donors and 781789 087582 LMT's W antedGift Certificates Av ailable MARTIN COUNTY L OOKING FOR GARDEN SERENITY?Adding a fountain can add charm, peace to nearly all settings P ageB6 INSIDEV ol. 12, No. 37 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Feb. 14, 2014 781800 FAIR FUN BEGINSB1 IN DEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B5 GardeningB6 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6F ree tax assistance through April 11 at four library locationsMa r tin County Library S ystem is offering free tax assistance at four of its library locations from Feb. 3 through April 1.

In 2010 Barry and Kathy B icknell's youngest son, C asey, was in an accident at the Palm Beach International Raceway. The car C asey was driving on the drag strip track went out of control and crashed, leaving him in a coma for six months. The traumatic brain injury he sustained re quired brain surgery and neurologists warned the Bicknell family that C asey may never recover, but they refused to give up hope. They took him to a hospital in Atlanta that specializes in treating his condition and against all odds C asey returned to consciousness. Mr. Bicknell knew he couldn't sit idly by and let C asey fight to recover on his own, so he retired from banking, took a nursing course to learn how to care for Casey at home, and took him to the Florida Institute for Neurological Rehabilitation, where he has been for the last three years. S tatistics state that most families in their situation crumble under the pressure of such a hardship, but not the Bicknells. "I think if this family's love wasn't this strong, we wouldn't stand a chance," Mr. Bicknell said. He admits it's been tough, but his family has r isen to the challenge. Mr. Bicknell spends his w eekdays in Wauchula at FINR, staying in a mobile home apartment at night and helping Casey with his therapy during the day. Mrs. Bicknell remains in S tuart, working as a pharmaceutical representative for the steady income and insurance coverage. Their older daughter Brittany is preparing to graduate with a bachelor's of science in nursing. "O n the family standpoint we're quite fractured," Mr. Bicknell said, but he doesn't want CaseyBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News Casey with his parents, Barry and Kathy Bicknell.Photo courtesy of the Bicknell familySee FA MILY, A3By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See BOOKS, A9 See P ROJECT, A2

S ponsored by U.S. Trust, the High Tea Benefit was a first time event for The Children's Museum, and was in lieu of their annual Purse Pa rt y. Originally to be held at the home of Jack and Ceejay H eckenberg of Sewall's P oint, Mother Nature had other plans, so the event was r elocated to the Mansion at T uckahoe. B enefactors not only enjoyed tea, sandwiches, scones, and champagne, but also live music provided by a string trio from the Treasure C oast Youth Symphony as they watched the stormy w eather out the windows of the mansion. Money raised by the museum was made through ticket sales to the event, donation cards, a raffle, and a silent auction. M any of the items included in the auction and raffle we re donated by local businesses such as Kemp's Shoe S alon, Just Gold Jewelers, M atilda's, Pam Huizenga Je w elry, Tesoro and Harbour Ridge communities, and several more. The High Tea Benefit was a big change from our Purse Pa rt y, but it turned out to be a tremendous success. We are so grateful to all the local businesses and benefactors for their donations, and their generosity," said Tammy Calabria, executive director of The Children's Museum. B ecause of this inaugural event, The Children's Museum was able to raise $22,000. This money will go towards the museum's Educational O utreach Programs which have allowed over 8,000 students from Martin, St. Lucie, In dian River, and Okeechobee counties to experience educational explor ation through hands-on exhibits in a state-of-the-art, environmentally conscious atmosphere. "W e want to make sure that the purpose of these events stays in the front of everyone's minds, and that is to make sure The Children's M useum remains a premier venue for education, explor ation, and fun for children," said Olivia Labrador, museum's education director. The Children's Museum of the Treasure Coast has certainly proven that come rain or shine nothing stops them from hosting a beautiful and successful event.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl St e wart Toyota in North Palm B each.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal Highway in Lake Park.Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.I'v e written many articles about the infamous "Dealer Fee." There's another very common trick that most dealers use that is equally prevalent and deceptive, called dealer installed options. D ealer installed options are products that have very low cost and value that have huge markups. Typically they are preinstalled on all of the dealer's cars in inventory, with the exception of a few "ad cars." These ad cars are ordered in small quantities, stripped of factory accessories and often without even an automatic transmission. They are typically ordered in the least desirable color and trim. The advertised car also either pays no commission to the salesman or a very small one. Typically only one car is available and when you ask to see it, the salesman will tell you it's been sold. The advertisement will sometimes say, "Many cars are available at similar prices" or words to the effect that there is more than one, but they are all priced higher than the one car advertised. The dealers will put a stock number in the fine print. This is the stock number of the advertised car and is the dealer's defense for having only one car at that low price. Even if y ou are able to read the fine print, seeing something like "#6339A" is not something that would give anyone a clue that this means there's only one car available at this price. I recently sent a mystery shopper in to investigate an advertisement by a South F lorida dealer who was advertising a new 2014 Toyota Co r olla for $14,988. The shopper was told by the salesman that this offer was for only one Co r olla and it was a stick shift. When she asked to see the car, the salesman said the car was unavailable". Then the salesman explained that all of their other Corollas had an additional charge of $897. This was for "dealer installed options" consisting of pin stripes ($199), floor mats $299), and nitrogen in the tires ($399). The dealer's approximate cost for these items is about $100, about a 900 percent markup! There was also a charge of $24.99 for an "electronic filing fee" and $75 for a "Tag Agency Fe e. These sound like state fees but they are not, only costs from subletting to outside private companies being passed along to the car buyer for more profit to the dealer. The bottom line is that the car advertised for $14,988 really cost $15,985, almost a thousand dollars more! What I've described above is the rule, not the exception, with most South Florida car dealers. The only way to avoid this sort of thing is to insist on a bottom line price. The only charge you should pay in addition to an advertised or quoted price is state sales tax and fees for the license tag and registration. You can check with the Florida D epartment of Motor Vehicles to confirm what a tag and registration costs. Costs the dealer may claim he incurs for obtaining these like "electronic filing fee" and "tag agency fee" are bogus charges which simply reimburse the dealer for his normal operating expenses. When you pay a dealer for his expenses, you are paying him a higher price and profit on the car. The law r equires that this be disclosed as a dealer fee and included in all advertised prices. As far as "dealer installed options" go, the safest bet is just don't buy them. Make it clear from the beginning that y ou insist that all options or accessories be factory installed. If a dealer won't agree to this, don't buy a car from him. If there is an option the factory doesn't offer that y ou want to buy, be extra careful to compare prices on that option with others who offer the same thing. The only reason dealers install options on cars is because they can mark them up exorbitantly as in the "900 percent" example above. R emember, dealer-installed options are not warranted by the manufacturer of the car and their quality is not as high. By getting at least three outthe-door prices on the exact same year, make, model car y ou want with identical MSRPs you are assured of getting a good price. Don't be fooled by "dealer list" which many dealers quote you to make you think it's the manufacturer's suggested retail price, MSRP. Do the same thing with getting the best price on your trade-in and the best rate on y our financing. Shop your trade-in like you want to sell it without buying another car. Be sure you check interest r ates with your bank or credit union and another bank just to be sure. to feel like he's been abandoned, so they make it work. Ev ery weekend Mr. Bicknell brings Casey home in their wheelchair accessible v an so they can spend time together as a family. He believes it offers his son a sense of normalcy, being in his own home, in his room. They play together, laugh together, and swap hugs and kisses, just like any other family. "I want him to know that his family loves him," Mr. B icknell said. "When we're home we feel like a family together." C asey may be bound to a wheelchair, but he still loves playing in the pool, going to the beach and spending time in the great outdoors. Just hearing his laughter, seeing him smile, and feeling his embrace warms the Bicknells hearts. C asey continues to make slow but steady progress. At one time the blinking of an eye brought hope, but now he fist bumps his family and is even beginning to learn to walk again with the help of nurses and parallel bars. "I t' s the love that has really given us the strength to continue and to push on," Mr. Bick nell said. This Valentine's Day weekend he's looking forward to spending some quality time with his family and wife, sharing the love that has held them together and kept them going through everything. The Bicknells want to convert their garage into a gym so Casey can continue his r ehabilitation at home. They are hosting Casey's Hope Golf and Dinner Benefit with Auction and Jimmy Dee Entertainment on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 at Yacht and Country Club in Stuart. Auction items include a Bob Griese signed football, a Miranda Lambert signed guitar, fishing trips, v acations stays and other luxury items.

"I 'v e been in this location for five years, but I've been in the area since 1970," said R alph Fogg, owner of Ralph's Pl ace. "This is a great place to be. The weather is wonderful, the people are great and I wouldn't want to live and work in any other community." Br idging the gap between down payment and monthly payment is something that Mr. Fogg and his staff pride themselves on. "W e don't want someone to come in here and get in ov er their head," said James T aylor, credit manager. "We know times are tough and we know that everyone needs a vehicle to get around. We work with those who work with us. We try to work out a payment schedule that is convenient and also a payment amount that doesn't leave the customer in a bad situation." W ith more than 75 cars, trucks, vans and SUVs, there are plenty of vehicles to choose from. "W e have a wide assortment of vehicles," said Mr. F ogg while pointing toward a lot full of shiny, tuned-up cars and trucks. "I have a lot of small trucks and we make sure all of our vehicles have been looked over from head to toe. We do maintenance on the vehicle before it is set out on the lot. We take a lot of pride in the vehicles we sell." Each of the vehicles are inspected by mechanics on the lot. Mr. Fogg said that if a customer has an issue with his or her vehicle, they can bring it in to be serviced. "R alph is very caring and generous," Mr. Taylor said.

It's a good time for papers in Florida to investigate where all of the money that the lottery brings in actually goes. There must be somebody taking from the pot. S omebody should look into this. Pray for less fortunateWe need to pray for those who are less fortunate and those who are homeless. We need to hope that we have more for our youth and that our leaders make the right decisions. What happened to quote?I don't know how an auto dealer can quote you one price when you're buying a car, and then give you another price when things are being finalized.Beware of bank rulesI just want to make everyone aware of something I didn't know and my bank did not tell me. When you have a CD (certificate of deposit) that is ready to roll over, if you don't tell the bank that you want the new higher interest rate, they will just roll over your CD with the same old low-interest you we re getting. We were not aware of this until someone pointed it out and have lost hundreds over the last couple years that my bank should have been paying to me. Y ears ago, it was automatic to roll over to the higher rate. S omehow they changed the rules and never told the customer. Public beware! Check everything, all your receipts, too, as the computers in the stores are also making mistakes, but not in your favor! Keep your eyes open! T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called "medically needy," which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick. I unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have can't be taken care of because they don't meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I don't know where to turn.Tipping is getting out of handM any years ago, tipping used to be reserved mainly for sit-down restaurants. Now, it's everywhere: nail salons, hair salons, dog groomers, bars and donut shops, just to name a few. Now restaurants want you to tip for just preparing your food for takeout. R estaurants and other businesses should pay their waiters and waitresses a salary. It's not the patron's responsibility to support your employees. T ipping has really gotten out of hand. I have never been in favor of tipping someone for providing good service. A part of customer service is providing excellent service to customers who might otherwise patronize a competitor. That's the American way! An order is placed, I prepare your food, now you not only ow e me for the food, but you owe me for handing it to you and being polite. There are many people in jobs who don't and can't ask or mandate that you tip them. If anyone should be owed a substantial tip, it's schoolteachers. They're underpaid and overworked. I notice parents don't even give their children's teachers a gift at holiday time anymore. Contrary to what society chooses to think, teaching is a job just like any other job. Mo r tgages have to be paid, if they can afford one. Car dealerships don't hand out free cars to teachers, and utility companies don't discount their utilities. Neither do grocery stores or clothing stores, the last time I checked. Mo re people are cooking at home rather than going out to eat. Employers, pay your employees a salary. If you can't afford to, then find another way to make a living. He r e's a tip: play the lottery, the same as many of us do or find another job where you don't have to rely on tips. It's highway robbery. Sick of deadbeat dadI realize that in this day and age with the economy in the state it's in, everyone has something to complain about, the price of gas, the price of food, rising health costs, just to name a few. All these things affect me, but like many other women, I am also faced with the never-ending chore of trying to collect child support from my son's "deadbeat dad." F or years it's been a game of "catch me if you can," so I put the problem in the hands of court system to collect this debt. It 's of no surprise that they haven't been successful, either. It seems to me that they don't really try too hard. Most of the burden of information gathering lands right back in my lap. Y ou would think with the technology they have at their fingertips, they could find out where he's working or even if he's working. And if he works off the books, as I suspect is the case here, there should be another way of collecting this money. In my case, both I and my current husband are lucky enough to be working, but between his two kids and my one there isn't a spare penny to be had. I have a growing son who needs clothing, shoes, school supplies and other expenses. None of those expenses are being shared by his so-called father. If the system that we depend on to help us is ineffectual, then it needs to be fixed. Perhaps the people who are doing these jobs should find employment more suited to their talents, which are evidently slim to none. The only time we hear about how the state is going to crack down on "deadbeat dads" is during an election years. I heard it a year ago, but what happened?Downtown delightsI'm going to visit Fort Pierce's downtown shops and r estaurants more often! The owners and shopkeepers were, without exception, friendly and accommodating. What I saw was attractive merchandise and appealing places to eat. I've lived here less than two years, but just learned yesterday that downtown Fort Pierce is a great place to shop.Fix the welfare systemI would like to know, as some others here, what is going on with the offices here? Why are so many illegal immigrants able to get food stamps and have Social Security cards, and get free stuff from this state? Why are we are taking care of people who sneak into the U.S. and we can't even take care of the people who were born here and work their whole life here? Then we have people who are on welfare who don't need to be on it at all. Are the people who work these jobs really checking the paperwork or just once in a while? If the immigrants want to stay, let them go through the right channels. The Social Security office should have a special card for immigrants to use, with pictures on them that they can't take off or change with someone. The same thing goes for the food stamp office. The office heads should get off their bottoms and do something about it. The offices should link together by computers, too. Why does the Social Security office issue new cards and numbers when someone loses theirs? They should look up the person on the file database before issuing new card, then issue a new one with the same number. There are some people with two or more Social Security cards. Then they head to food stamp office to get help with these new cards. There are so many Americans who need help in this area and can't get it because of this problem. The system we have is broken down, so, let's fix it now.A few questions Why is it that we don't have benches at bus stops, when the disabled, elderly and poor, are using them? Why can't they put a back-up battery for the traffic light clocks so that they will stay timed? All it takes is a small battery such as your alarm clock at home. This isn't rocket science. Why do I have to drive behind a car that has tint so dark that I can't see the brake lights of the car in front of them? That is the purpose of the high middle brake light. Why is it that in my house, with the air conditioning on, I can't hear my television in my bedroom in the back of the house because of loud car stereos? Why is it that people are setting off professional fireworks in their back yards? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. One of the questions that I am asked frequently has to do with the icons on the typical W indows desktop. "Aren't they slowing things down? I never use most of them; can't we get rid of them?" M ost of the icons on the average desktop are not slowing the computer down at all but are actually more like "speed dial" buttons on a phone. Most desktop icons are just shortcuts to programs buried deeper in the system and are on the desktop so you don't have to navigate through all sorts of menus to launch a program. If y ou look at the icons on y our desktop, you may notice that some icons have a little arrow in a little white box at the lower left corner of the icon. The arrow itself is kind of curvy and will point to the top right corner of the icon. You may also notice that other icons (like the C omputer icon, the User folder icon, the Recycle Bin, etc.) do not have the little arrow. There is a big difference between the two types of icons the icons with the little arrows are actually just shortcuts and not the actual program (or file). Shortcuts are really, really tiny and don't slow the computer down at all. "B ut what about the icons that don't have the little arrow? Are they safe to get rid of?" That question is a little harder to answer. You see, any icon on your computer that does not have the little shortcut indicator is either a user file or a system file and messing with it can cause problems. Icons on your desktop that are not shortcuts are either files that have been saved on the desktop or system files that have been set there by the operating system, and care should be taken when manipulating them. Another point that I want to make is that people have different ideas as to what the phrase "get rid of" means! When someone asks me to get rid of all of the unused icons on their desktop what they are invariably asking me to do is to delete them. If you have been reading my column for any length of time then you know how I feel about deleting things from your computer it's not something I do casually. In fact I have a saying, "if I were king I'd have the delete button stricken from the keyboard!" My idea of cleaning a Windows desktop by getting rid of" a bunch of stuff is not to delete everything but leans more in line with the phrase "out of sight, out of mind." People will watch with a puzzled look on their face as I create yet another icon on their desktop (a new folder), name it something like "Desktop Clutter" and then drag all of the unused icons into the new folder. Then, once the desktop is down to just the icons that actually get used, I drag the Desktop Clutter folder and drop it into the U sers folder. Then I usually spend the next ten minutes of so explaining why I went through all that trouble r ather than just deleting everything. My explanation r eally boils down to habit. One of the worst habits people get into with their machines is the habit of deleting stuff every time they tidy up. Sure it's great to have a tidy desktop but if you are in the habit of casually deleting stuff then eventually y ou are going to delete something you actually need. Even worse is the habit some people have of emptying the recycle bin every time they delete something. That's just a disaster waiting to happen. My philosophy is "out of sight, out of mind." Tidying up my system by sweeping a bunch of unused shortcuts (and actual files for that matter) into a folder and then moving the folder out of sight ensures that if I accidentally do "get rid of something" that I need, I can r ecover it easily enough by digging into the folder where I moved it. Does this mean that I am completely against deleting everything? Of course not. S ome things are indeed trash and I have no problem deleting them I just have a r eal problem with the habit of deleting things with barely a second thought. I've seen too many people delete their way into too many problems.

Fitness center offers personal touchSTUART Results Fitness is a gym for people who don't like the gym. Owner Lou DiVita, who has frequented gyms since he was 12, set out to create exactly that when he opened the fitness center in 2002. F or 53 years he's been spending time in gyms of all shapes and sizes, so when he r etired, he wanted to continue doing something that interested him. Results Fitness in S tuart was it. B ut he didn't want to open just any gym. He wanted a club that included none of the attributes he disliked about clubs he had trained at in the past. He eliminated the crowding and the impersonal atmosphere and created a place where everybody, exper ienced bodybuilder and fitness neophyte alike, could enjoy working out. "W e cater to people who are extremely fit or that are out of shape who are intimidated by the perception of a typical gym," Mr. DiVita said. The small gym with a friendly staff is very different from the larger clubs in the area. "B ecause we're small and intimate, there's a personal touch," Mr. DiVita said. "It's a non-intimidating, comfortable place to work out." Mr. DiVita is often at the meticulously maintained gym 75-hours a week, always ready to answer questions and give instruction. H is employees do the same, including two of Results Fitness' newest trainers, Dave Ma r inelli and Jennifer Giannetti. Mr. Marinelli is a local award-winning body-building champ and four-time Mr. F lorida title winner and Ms. G iannetti is a 2011 Masters F igure Winner. The two bring the club to a whole new level of training, according to Mr. DiVita, but personal training isn't all the gym offers.

In fact, they're the jewelry store that many larger chains refer customers to when they can't fulfill their needs. T om Newitt opened Newitt Je w elers 18 years ago, but he's been in the business for much longer than that. When he was a child, he was always good with his hands, keeping them busy with craft projects. He r emembers first being intrigued by the business when he lived next door to a family who owned a jewelry store. After high school he apprenticed with other jewelers to develop his skills and can now call himself a Master Je w eler with 39-years of experience. That's what makes us different from most other places around here," Mr. N ewitt said. It 's one of the reasons, anyway. Newitt Jewelers also boasts a Master Watchmaker on premises and the ability to manufacture and repair jewelry in-house. Mr. Newitt is often busy making molds and crafting ri ngs, pendants and bracelets in the back room, including a line of high-end nautical jewelry designed by Peter Costello. N ewitt Jewelers carries preo wned Rolex watches, a wide selection of bridal jewelry, and a handpicked selection of jewelry that shoppers won't find at other stores. "W e have a unique collection of pieces," said Conni Clough, salesperson at N ewitt Jewelers. "W e try to offer quality jewelry that is completely different," Mr. Newitt said. One of their most recent items, exclusive to Newitt Je w elers, are destination bracelets for Stuart and the Tr easure Coast. Stuart's bracelet features a sailfish and the Treasure Coast's is a r eplica Spanish silver coin and anchor. A portion of the sale from each bracelet is donated to the Indian Riverkeeper to fight for the well-being of local waterways. They have already contributed more than $3,000 to the organization through bracelet sales. So whether browsing for a new pair of earrings, searching for the perfect engagement ring, or just looking to show some hometown pride, N ewitt Jewelers offers an eclectic selection of items at a wide range of price points and a friendly staff to help their customers find exactly what they're looking for. N ewitt Jewelers is located at the corner of U.S. 1 and Br itt Road in the shopping plaza with Bed, Bath and Be y ond, Michaels and Total W ine, just south of the Treasure Coast Mall.

Since most of the items in the media are children's toys and my children are all grown and on their own, I should doublecheck all the items that I buy for my Chihuahuas. I was in for a great surprise as my husband and I went from store to store and almost everything was stamped with Made in China. After even asking for assistance from store clerks, we found that they were as surprised as we were that the items for our four legged loved ones aren't American made either.

FORT PIERCE It's that time of year again. The smell of gyros is in the air, traditional music is being played and the community is invited to learn and enjoy Greek culture. S t. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church has been hosting its annual festival for 35 years, and in that time the event has expanded and developed into one of the most popular festivals of the year. Each year, about 11,000 people visit the festival," said Adam Black, event cochairman and vice president of the church. "It's great to have such a supportive community and to be part of such a great event. Each year we offer great Greek food and entertainment for old and young alike. There's something for everyone to do." This year's event will include a bounce house and bungee jump for children, a Greek coffee shop, live music and dancing, church tours, Greek beer, wine and ouzo, a Greek liqueur, arts and crafts and a raffle with cash prizes. "W e offer Greek specialties such as mouffaka, spanakopita, the ever-popular gyros and pastries like baklava," Mr. Black said. "M any people come for the entertainment and for a chance to sit down and watch the dancers and listen to the music, while some come because they love the food and can't wait to have some of the authentic cuisine that is offered." The three-day event will offer a plethora of different ways to enjoy the Greek culture. While most will indulge in the sweet treats and savory dishes, there are a lot of people who enjoy the social aspect of the event. "M any people come and sit under the giant tent and r eminisce about the memor ies that the food and music bring up," said Mr. Black. This is a time for friends and families to gather and to enjoy the Greek culture. N ot only is this a big community event, this is a huge event for the Greek community as well."

Agreat way to start fixing up your outdoor space for spring is to install a backyard or deck fountain. There are many types of fountains you can utilize and you are only limited by y our imagination. You can buy a ready-made fountain kit, which are available at most home improvement stores, or you can opt to build one yourself. F ountains can add charm and character to almost any landscape. The sound of running water has long been a great way to create a r elaxing space you can enjoy, especially after a hard day at the office. To me, one of the most r elaxing experiences is eating dinner on our deck at twilight while viewing and listening to our rock waterfall fountain. It gives our deck a feel like you eating at a quaint Key West r estaurant. The first thing to think about is where you want to locate your fountain. If you have a deck, this is a great location and the added advantage is that an electric outlet is close at hand. If you decide to install your fountain in y our yard, you will need to have a power source installed to operate your fountain. You will need to r un your electric cable through impact resistant plastic conduit laid in a trench in soil or sand. It is r ecommended you have the power source installed by a qualified electrician. There are also solar pumps that are available if you install your fountain in a full sun environment. The next thing you need to consider is what type of fountain or pond you want to install. You can use a kit or you can buy your pump and tubing separate and get creative. You can use an old galvanized tub, an old hand water pump or almost any container that can hold water. I have even seen fountains made from flowerpots. My favorite is a fountain made from rocks or a simulated rock fountain made from resin. M ost fountain pumps are similar in the way they operate however there are several sizes available depending on how much water flow you will need. S ubmersible pumps are safe to use if they are properly installed and operated. Once you have all y our parts, simply build y our fountain, install the pump and tubing and you are ready to enjoy! Your fountain pumps will last for many years if you take care not to run your pumps when the water levels are too low. No w that you have your fountain installed, the next step is to create your landscaping design around the fountain. Most fountains will look best if they are nestled inside a canopy of tropicals. There are a number of choices you can use to create your space including areca palms, r ubber plants, marginatas, and majesty palms. If you are using a rock or other type of waterfall fountain, y ou might want to place a few of the higher areca palms or majesty palms in the rear part of the fountain then use some midheight tropicals such as marginata or the plants on the side areas of the fountain. You can then use some liriope, mondo grass, or another choice of low growing plants around the front of the fountain. This type of setup will create a step effect with the higher plants to the rear of the fountain and lower plants toward the front of the fountain. This effect is re ally intense if you install y our fountain in a corner area on your deck. If you install your fountain in y our yard, you can surr ound it with seasonal flowers to create a great space to get away from the daily stresses of everyday life. In short, you can make y our project as simple or as involved as you want but the end result will be satisfying no matter which course you take. So go ahead and dig in today and start relaxing tomorrow! J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

Donation brings project to middle schoolMARTIN COUNTY Where there we re once mismatched, mildewed and incomplete texts on students desks in Eleuthera, Bahamas will now sit gently used, updated and complete sets of learning materials thanks to efforts from a Martin C ounty teacher. W ith changes to the Common Co re curriculum and new books to go along with it, there were suddenly hundreds of books, only a few years old, which no longer had any purpose. T iffany Reddick wasnt the only one desirous of keeping those mater ials out of a landfill, but she was the one who offered a solution. T wice she has gone on mission trips over summer break to the B ahamas and served at a local primary school. She noticed while cleaning out the schools library that their books were old and in poor r epair. She knew Martin County Schools would be r eceiving new ones soon, so she asked if the Eleuthera schools could benefit from Martin C ountys old ones. I t seemed criminal to throw all those books out, Ms. Reddick said. The answer was a resounding yes. So when she returned home this summer, she brought the proposal to the administration atT eacher organizes effort to send books to students in BahamasA $20,000 donation from a local philanthropist made it possible for Tykes and Teens to finally bring Project Northland to Indiantown Middle School. It s the same alcohol and drug prevention program already implemented in the other four middle schools in Mar tin County. S ince 2008, Indiantown M iddle School has been the only Martin County Middle School without such a program. Tykes and Teens, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving area children and their families, heads up programs in the other schools, but never had funding for Indiantown, until now. W e re really excited to be able to expand the program to the western end of the community, said Darcy F lierl, Tykes and Teens Director of Prevention. The donation for Project Nor thland, a comprehensive prevention program designed to modify community attitudes toward youth substance use, came from Elisabeth Lahti. Her name is synonymous with charitable giving in Martin County where the library in I ndiantown bears her name. S he is a generous and wonderfully kind individual, said Paula Hundt, Tykes and T eens director of development It was Ms. Hundt who spoke to Lahti last year and introduced her to Project Nor thland. When she explained that Indiantown had a need that a lack of funding wouldnt allow Tykes and Teens to fill, Ms. Lahti jumped at the chance to help. The $20,000 will go toward purchasing books in several languages, educating teachers and providing funding so the students can take part in community-wide projects like the Project Northland P oster Contest. The program will only be implemented in the sixth grade this year, but will continue into the seventh and eighth grades in the next two y ears. The students will explore myths of underage drinking, learn to say no to drugs and alcohol and r esearch the effects of alcohol on the teen brain. E very young person can benefit from having the corr ect information, Ms. Hundt said. We think its a great start for the children and look forward to growing the classes each year. Ms. Flierl said the $20,000 will go quite a way toward providing the students with materials and counseling, but Tykes and Teens is always looking for new donors and 781789 087582 LMTs WantedGift Certificates Av ailable MARTIN COUNTY L OOKING FOR GARDEN SERENITY?Adding a fountain can add charm, peace to nearly all settings P ageB6 INSIDEV ol. 12, No. 37 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Feb. 14, 2014 781800 FAIR FUN BEGINSB1 INDEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B5 GardeningB6 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6F ree tax assistance through April 11 at four library locationsMar tin County Library S ystem is offering free tax assistance at four of its library locations from Feb. 3 through April 1.

In 2010 Barry and Kathy B icknells youngest son, C asey, was in an accident at the Palm Beach International Raceway. The car C asey was driving on the drag strip track went out of control and crashed, leaving him in a coma for six months. The traumatic brain injury he sustained re quired brain surgery and neurologists warned the Bicknell family that C asey may never recover, but they refused to give up hope. They took him to a hospital in Atlanta that specializes in treating his condition and against all odds C asey returned to consciousness. Mr. Bicknell knew he couldnt sit idly by and let C asey fight to recover on his own, so he retired from banking, took a nursing course to learn how to care for Casey at home, and took him to the Florida Institute for Neurological Rehabilitation, where he has been for the last three years. S tatistics state that most families in their situation crumble under the pressure of such a hardship, but not the Bicknells. I think if this familys love wasnt this strong, we wouldnt stand a chance, Mr. Bicknell said. He admits its been tough, but his family has r isen to the challenge. Mr. Bicknell spends his w eekdays in Wauchula at FINR, staying in a mobile home apartment at night and helping Casey with his therapy during the day. Mrs. Bicknell remains in S tuart, working as a pharmaceutical representative for the steady income and insurance coverage. Their older daughter Brittany is preparing to graduate with a bachelors of science in nursing.

S ponsored by U.S. Trust, the High Tea Benefit was a first time event for The Childrens Museum, and was in lieu of their annual Purse Pa rt y. Originally to be held at the home of Jack and Ceejay H eckenberg of Sewalls P oint, Mother Nature had other plans, so the event was r elocated to the Mansion at T uckahoe. B enefactors not only enjoyed tea, sandwiches, scones, and champagne, but also live music provided by a string trio from the Treasure C oast Youth Symphony as they watched the stormy w eather out the windows of the mansion. Money raised by the museum was made through ticket sales to the event, donation cards, a raffle, and a silent auction. M any of the items included in the auction and raffle we re donated by local businesses such as Kemps Shoe S alon, Just Gold Jewelers, M atildas, Pam Huizenga Jew elry, Tesoro and Harbour Ridge communities, and several more. The High Tea Benefit was a big change from our Purse Pa rt y, but it turned out to be a tremendous success. We are so grateful to all the local businesses and benefactors for their donations, and their generosity, said Tammy Calabria, executive director of The Childrens Museum. B ecause of this inaugural event, The Childrens Museum was able to raise $22,000. This money will go towards the museums Educational O utreach Programs which have allowed over 8,000 students from Martin, St. Lucie, In dian River, and Okeechobee counties to experience educational explor ation through hands-on exhibits in a state-of-the-art, environmentally conscious atmosphere. W e want to make sure that the purpose of these events stays in the front of everyones minds, and that is to make sure The Childrens M useum remains a premier venue for education, explor ation, and fun for children, said Olivia Labrador, museums education director. The Childrens Museum of the Treasure Coast has certainly proven that come rain or shine nothing stops them from hosting a beautiful and successful event.

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Ste wart Toyota in North Palm B each.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal Highway in Lake Park.Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.Iv e written many articles about the infamous Dealer Fee. Theres another very common trick that most dealers use that is equally prevalent and deceptive, called dealer installed options. D ealer installed options are products that have very low cost and value that have huge markups. Typically they are preinstalled on all of the dealers cars in inventory, with the exception of a few ad cars. These ad cars are ordered in small quantities, stripped of factory accessories and often without even an automatic transmission. They are typically ordered in the least desirable color and trim. The advertised car also either pays no commission to the salesman or a very small one. Typically only one car is available and when you ask to see it, the salesman will tell you its been sold. The advertisement will sometimes say, Many cars are available at similar prices or words to the effect that there is more than one, but they are all priced higher than the one car advertised. The dealers will put a stock number in the fine print. This is the stock number of the advertised car and is the dealers defense for having only one car at that low price. Even if y ou are able to read the fine print, seeing something like #6339A is not something that would give anyone a clue that this means theres only one car available at this price. I recently sent a mystery shopper in to investigate an advertisement by a South F lorida dealer who was advertising a new 2014 Toyota Cor olla for $14,988. The shopper was told by the salesman that this offer was for only one Cor olla and it was a stick shift. When she asked to see the car, the salesman said the car was unavailable. Then the salesman explained that all of their other Corollas had an additional charge of $897. This was for dealer installed options consisting of pin stripes ($199), floor mats $299), and nitrogen in the tires ($399). The dealers approximate cost for these items is about $100, about a 900 percent markup! There was also a charge of $24.99 for an electronic filing fee and $75 for a Tag Agency Fe e. These sound like state fees but they are not, only costs from subletting to outside private companies being passed along to the car buyer for more profit to the dealer. The bottom line is that the car advertised for $14,988 really cost $15,985, almost a thousand dollars more! What Ive described above is the rule, not the exception, with most South Florida car dealers. The only way to avoid this sort of thing is to insist on a bottom line price. The only charge you should pay in addition to an advertised or quoted price is state sales tax and fees for the license tag and registration. You can check with the Florida D epartment of Motor Vehicles to confirm what a tag and registration costs. Costs the dealer may claim he incurs for obtaining these like electronic filing fee and tag agency fee are bogus charges which simply reimburse the dealer for his normal operating expenses. When you pay a dealer for his expenses, you are paying him a higher price and profit on the car. The law r equires that this be disclosed as a dealer fee and included in all advertised prices. As far as dealer installed options go, the safest bet is just dont buy them. Make it clear from the beginning that y ou insist that all options or accessories be factory installed. If a dealer wont agree to this, dont buy a car from him. If there is an option the factory doesnt offer that y ou want to buy, be extra careful to compare prices on that option with others who offer the same thing. The only reason dealers install options on cars is because they can mark them up exorbitantly as in the percent example above. R emember, dealer-installed options are not warranted by the manufacturer of the car and their quality is not as high. By getting at least three outthe-door prices on the exact same year, make, model car y ou want with identical MSRPs you are assured of getting a good price. Dont be fooled by dealer list which many dealers quote you to make you think its the manufacturers suggested retail price, MSRP. Do the same thing with getting the best price on your trade-in and the best rate on y our financing. Shop your trade-in like you want to sell it without buying another car. Be sure you check interest r ates with your bank or credit union and another bank just to be sure. to feel like hes been abandoned, so they make it work. Ev ery weekend Mr. Bicknell brings Casey home in their wheelchair accessible v an so they can spend time together as a family. He believes it offers his son a sense of normalcy, being in his own home, in his room. They play together, laugh together, and swap hugs and kisses, just like any other family. I want him to know that his family loves him, Mr. B icknell said. When were home we feel like a family together. C asey may be bound to a wheelchair, but he still loves playing in the pool, going to the beach and spending time in the great outdoors. Just hearing his laughter, seeing him smile, and feeling his embrace warms the Bicknells hearts. C asey continues to make slow but steady progress. At one time the blinking of an eye brought hope, but now he fist bumps his family and is even beginning to learn to walk again with the help of nurses and parallel bars. I t s the love that has really given us the strength to continue and to push on, Mr. Bick nell said. This Valentines Day weekend hes looking forward to spending some quality time with his family and wife, sharing the love that has held them together and kept them going through everything. The Bicknells want to convert their garage into a gym so Casey can continue his r ehabilitation at home. They are hosting Caseys Hope Golf and Dinner Benefit with Auction and Jimmy Dee Entertainment on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014 at Yacht and Country Club in Stuart.

Its a good time for papers in Florida to investigate where all of the money that the lottery brings in actually goes. There must be somebody taking from the pot. S omebody should look into this. Pray for less fortunateWe need to pray for those who are less fortunate and those who are homeless. We need to hope that we have more for our youth and that our leaders make the right decisions. What happened to quote?I dont know how an auto dealer can quote you one price when youre buying a car, and then give you another price when things are being finalized.Beware of bank rulesI just want to make everyone aware of something I didnt know and my bank did not tell me. When you have a CD (certificate of deposit) that is ready to roll over, if you dont tell the bank that you want the new higher interest rate, they will just roll over your CD with the same old low-interest you we re getting. We were not aware of this until someone pointed it out and have lost hundreds over the last couple years that my bank should have been paying to me. Y ears ago, it was automatic to roll over to the higher rate. S omehow they changed the rules and never told the customer. Public beware! Check everything, all your receipts, too, as the computers in the stores are also making mistakes, but not in your favor! Keep your eyes open! T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called medically needy, which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick. I unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have cant be taken care of because they dont meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I dont know where to turn.Tipping is getting out of handM any years ago, tipping used to be reserved mainly for sit-down restaurants. Now, it's everywhere: nail salons, hair salons, dog groomers, bars and donut shops, just to name a few. Now restaurants want you to tip for just preparing your food for takeout. R estaurants and other businesses should pay their waiters and waitresses a salary. It's not the patron's responsibility to support your employees. T ipping has really gotten out of hand. I have never been in favor of tipping someone for providing good service. A part of customer service is providing excellent service to customers who might otherwise patronize a competitor. That's the American way! An order is placed, I prepare your food, now you not only ow e me for the food, but you owe me for handing it to you and being polite. There are many people in jobs who don't and can't ask or mandate that you tip them. If anyone should be owed a substantial tip, it's schoolteachers. They're underpaid and overworked. I notice parents don't even give their children's teachers a gift at holiday time anymore. Contrary to what society chooses to think, teaching is a job just like any other job. Mor tgages have to be paid, if they can afford one. Car dealerships don't hand out free cars to teachers, and utility companies don't discount their utilities. Neither do grocery stores or clothing stores, the last time I checked. Mo re people are cooking at home rather than going out to eat. Employers, pay your employees a salary. If you can't afford to, then find another way to make a living. Her e's a tip: play the lottery, the same as many of us do or find another job where you don't have to rely on tips. It's highway robbery. Sick of deadbeat dadI realize that in this day and age with the economy in the state its in, everyone has something to complain about, the price of gas, the price of food, rising health costs, just to name a few. All these things affect me, but like many other women, I am also faced with the never-ending chore of trying to collect child support from my sons deadbeat dad. F or years its been a game of catch me if you can, so I put the problem in the hands of court system to collect this debt. It s of no surprise that they havent been successful, either. It seems to me that they dont really try too hard. Most of the burden of information gathering lands right back in my lap. Y ou would think with the technology they have at their fingertips, they could find out where hes working or even if hes working. And if he works off the books, as I suspect is the case here, there should be another way of collecting this money. In my case, both I and my current husband are lucky enough to be working, but between his two kids and my one there isnt a spare penny to be had. I have a growing son who needs clothing, shoes, school supplies and other expenses. None of those expenses are being shared by his so-called father. If the system that we depend on to help us is ineffectual, then it needs to be fixed. Perhaps the people who are doing these jobs should find employment more suited to their talents, which are evidently slim to none. The only time we hear about how the state is going to crack down on deadbeat dads is during an election years. I heard it a year ago, but what happened?Downtown delightsI'm going to visit Fort Pierce's downtown shops and r estaurants more often! The owners and shopkeepers were, without exception, friendly and accommodating. What I saw was attractive merchandise and appealing places to eat. I've lived here less than two years, but just learned yesterday that downtown Fort Pierce is a great place to shop.Fix the welfare systemI would like to know, as some others here, what is going on with the offices here? Why are so many illegal immigrants able to get food stamps and have Social Security cards, and get free stuff from this state? Why are we are taking care of people who sneak into the U.S. and we can't even take care of the people who were born here and work their whole life here? Then we have people who are on welfare who don't need to be on it at all. Are the people who work these jobs really checking the paperwork or just once in a while? If the immigrants want to stay, let them go through the right channels. The Social Security office should have a special card for immigrants to use, with pictures on them that they can't take off or change with someone. The same thing goes for the food stamp office. The office heads should get off their bottoms and do something about it. The offices should link together by computers, too. Why does the Social Security office issue new cards and numbers when someone loses theirs? They should look up the person on the file database before issuing new card, then issue a new one with the same number. There are some people with two or more Social Security cards. Then they head to food stamp office to get help with these new cards. There are so many Americans who need help in this area and can't get it because of this problem. The system we have is broken down, so, let's fix it now.A few questions Why is it that we dont have benches at bus stops, when the disabled, elderly and poor, are using them? Why cant they put a back-up battery for the traffic light clocks so that they will stay timed? All it takes is a small battery such as your alarm clock at home. This isnt rocket science. Why do I have to drive behind a car that has tint so dark that I cant see the brake lights of the car in front of them? That is the purpose of the high middle brake light. Why is it that in my house, with the air conditioning on, I cant hear my television in my bedroom in the back of the house because of loud car stereos? Why is it that people are setting off professional fireworks in their back yards? Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail news@hometownnewsol.com. C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. One of the questions that I am asked frequently has to do with the icons on the typical W indows desktop. Arent they slowing things down? I never use most of them; cant we get rid of them? M ost of the icons on the average desktop are not slowing the computer down at all but are actually more like speed dial buttons on a phone. Most desktop icons are just shortcuts to programs buried deeper in the system and are on the desktop so you dont have to navigate through all sorts of menus to launch a program. If you look at the icons on y our desktop, you may notice that some icons have a little arrow in a little white box at the lower left corner of the icon. The arrow itself is kind of curvy and will point to the top right corner of the icon. You may also notice that other icons (like the C omputer icon, the User folder icon, the Recycle Bin, etc.) do not have the little arrow. There is a big difference between the two types of icons the icons with the little arrows are actually just shortcuts and not the actual program (or file). Shortcuts are really, really tiny and dont slow the computer down at all. B ut what about the icons that dont have the little arrow? Are they safe to get rid of? That question is a little harder to answer. You see, any icon on your computer that does not have the little shortcut indicator is either a user file or a system file and messing with it can cause problems. Icons on your desktop that are not shortcuts are either files that have been saved on the desktop or system files that have been set there by the operating system, and care should be taken when manipulating them. Another point that I want to make is that people have different ideas as to what the phrase get rid of means! When someone asks me to get rid of all of the unused icons on their desktop what they are invariably asking me to do is to delete them. If you have been reading my column for any length of time then you know how I feel about deleting things from your computer its not something I do casually. In fact I have a saying, if I were king Id have the delete button stricken from the keyboard! My idea of cleaning a Windows desktop by getting rid of a bunch of stuff is not to delete everything but leans more in line with the phrase out of sight, out of mind. People will watch with a puzzled look on their face as I create yet another icon on their desktop (a new folder), name it something like Desktop Clutter and then drag all of the unused icons into the new folder. Then, once the desktop is down to just the icons that actually get used, I drag the Desktop Clutter folder and drop it into the U sers folder. Then I usually spend the next ten minutes of so explaining why I went through all that trouble r ather than just deleting everything. My explanation r eally boils down to habit. One of the worst habits people get into with their machines is the habit of deleting stuff every time they tidy up. Sure its great to have a tidy desktop but if you are in the habit of casually deleting stuff then eventually y ou are going to delete something you actually need. Even worse is the habit some people have of emptying the recycle bin every time they delete something. Thats just a disaster waiting to happen. My philosophy is out of sight, out of mind. Tidying up my system by sweeping a bunch of unused shortcuts (and actual files for that matter) into a folder and then moving the folder out of sight ensures that if I accidentally do get rid of something that I need, I can r ecover it easily enough by digging into the folder where I moved it. Does this mean that I am completely against deleting everything? Of course not. S ome things are indeed trash and I have no problem deleting them I just have a r eal problem with the habit of deleting things with barely a second thought. Ive seen too many people delete their way into too many problems.

Fitness center offers personal touchSTUART Results Fitness is a gym for people who dont like the gym. Owner Lou DiVita, who has frequented gyms since he was 12, set out to create exactly that when he opened the fitness center in 2002. F or 53 years hes been spending time in gyms of all shapes and sizes, so when he r etired, he wanted to continue doing something that interested him. Results Fitness in S tuart was it. B ut he didnt want to open just any gym. He wanted a club that included none of the attributes he disliked about clubs he had trained at in the past. He eliminated the crowding and the impersonal atmosphere and created a place where everybody, exper ienced bodybuilder and fitness neophyte alike, could enjoy working out. W e cater to people who are extremely fit or that are out of shape who are intimidated by the perception of a typical gym, Mr. DiVita said. The small gym with a friendly staff is very different from the larger clubs in the area. B ecause were small and intimate, theres a personal touch, Mr. DiVita said. Its a non-intimidating, comfortable place to work out. Mr. DiVita is often at the meticulously maintained gym 75-hours a week, always ready to answer questions and give instruction. H is employees do the same, including two of Results Fitness newest trainers, Dave Mar inelli and Jennifer Giannetti. Mr. Marinelli is a local award-winning body-building champ and four-time Mr. F lorida title winner and Ms. G iannetti is a 2011 Masters F igure Winner. The two bring the club to a whole new level of training, according to Mr. DiVita, but personal training isnt all the gym offers.

In fact, theyre the jewelry store that many larger chains refer customers to when they cant fulfill their needs. T om Newitt opened Newitt Jew elers 18 years ago, but hes been in the business for much longer than that. When he was a child, he was always good with his hands, keeping them busy with craft projects. He r emembers first being intrigued by the business when he lived next door to a family who owned a jewelry store. After high school he apprenticed with other jewelers to develop his skills and can now call himself a Master Jew eler with 39-years of experience. Thats what makes us different from most other places around here, Mr. N ewitt said. It s one of the reasons, anyway. Newitt Jewelers also boasts a Master Watchmaker on premises and the ability to manufacture and repair jewelry in-house. Mr. Newitt is often busy making molds and crafting ri ngs, pendants and bracelets in the back room, including a line of high-end nautical jewelry designed by Peter Costello. N ewitt Jewelers carries preo wned Rolex watches, a wide selection of bridal jewelry, and a handpicked selection of jewelry that shoppers wont find at other stores. W e have a unique collection of pieces, said Conni Clough, salesperson at N ewitt Jewelers. W e try to offer quality jewelry that is completely different, Mr. Newitt said. One of their most recent items, exclusive to Newitt Jew elers, are destination bracelets for Stuart and the Tr easure Coast. Stuarts bracelet features a sailfish and the Treasure Coasts is a r eplica Spanish silver coin and anchor. A portion of the sale from each bracelet is donated to the Indian Riverkeeper to fight for the well-being of local waterways. They have already contributed more than $3,000 to the organization through bracelet sales. So whether browsing for a new pair of earrings, searching for the perfect engagement ring, or just looking to show some hometown pride, N ewitt Jewelers offers an eclectic selection of items at a wide range of price points and a friendly staff to help their customers find exactly what theyre looking for.

Cr ystal Lake Elementary where she is a fourth grade teacher. They jumped right on board. I t was just a matter of taking resources that would have otherwise ended up in the garbage and sending them to somewhere they could be used, Ms. Reddick said. S he contacted the Ministry of Education in the Bahamas and Missionary Flights International who agreed to transport the textbooks over several trips to the area. There was plenty to move because when Hidden Oaks Elementary heard about it they wanted in on it, too. Now there are five pallets containing more than 1,000 math, science, history and r eading materials headed to Eleuthera ready to be put to use. B ut while Ms. Reddick was glad her proposal was such a hit, it was never about the publicity for her; it was about helping people. I wasnt doing it for any other reason than I knew they needed textbooks and we have textbooks to get rid of, Ms. Reddick said. It s about setting an example for her three children, too. W e ve always tried to live by two rules: love God and love othersIts what were supposed to do, Ms. Reddick said. This was a way that I could help. There are plenty more leftov er books, and more schools in the district want in on the action, but Ms. Reddick and school administrators are trying to come up with other places to send them, as Eleuthera schools can only take so many. Ms. R eddick simply doesnt want to see them go to waste. There are opportunities out there for us to make a difference and I think we should take them, Ms. Reddick said.

Even pet toys are foreign madeW ith all of the items being r ecalled from China, you can't be too safe. Since most of the items in the media are children's toys and my children are all grown and on their own, I should doublecheck all the items that I buy for my Chihuahuas. I was in for a great surprise as my husband and I went from store to store and almost everything was stamped with Made in China. After even asking for assistance from store clerks, we found that they were as surprised as we were that the items for our four legged loved ones aren't American made either.

Agreat way to start fixing up your outdoor space for spring is to install a backyard or deck fountain. There are many types of fountains you can utilize and you are only limited by y our imagination. You can buy a ready-made fountain kit, which are available at most home improvement stores, or you can opt to build one yourself. F ountains can add charm and character to almost any landscape. The sound of running water has long been a great way to create a r elaxing space you can enjoy, especially after a hard day at the office. To me, one of the most r elaxing experiences is eating dinner on our deck at twilight while viewing and listening to our rock waterfall fountain. It gives our deck a feel like you eating at a quaint Key West r estaurant. The first thing to think about is where you want to locate your fountain. If you have a deck, this is a great location and the added advantage is that an electric outlet is close at hand. If you decide to install your fountain in y our yard, you will need to have a power source installed to operate your fountain. You will need to r un your electric cable through impact resistant plastic conduit laid in a trench in soil or sand. It is r ecommended you have the power source installed by a qualified electrician. There are also solar pumps that are available if you install your fountain in a full sun environment. The next thing you need to consider is what type of fountain or pond you want to install. You can use a kit or you can buy your pump and tubing separate and get creative. You can use an old galvanized tub, an old hand water pump or almost any container that can hold water. I have even seen fountains made from flowerpots. My favorite is a fountain made from rocks or a simulated rock fountain made from resin. M ost fountain pumps are similar in the way they operate however there are several sizes available depending on how much water flow you will need. S ubmersible pumps are safe to use if they are properly installed and operated. Once you have all y our parts, simply build y our fountain, install the pump and tubing and you are ready to enjoy! Your fountain pumps will last for many years if you take care not to run your pumps when the water levels are too low. Now that you have your fountain installed, the next step is to create your landscaping design around the fountain. Most fountains will look best if they are nestled inside a canopy of tropicals. There are a number of choices you can use to create your space including areca palms, r ubber plants, marginatas, and majesty palms. If you are using a rock or other type of waterfall fountain, y ou might want to place a few of the higher areca palms or majesty palms in the rear part of the fountain then use some midheight tropicals such as marginata or the plants on the side areas of the fountain. You can then use some liriope, mondo grass, or another choice of low growing plants around the front of the fountain. This type of setup will create a step effect with the higher plants to the rear of the fountain and lower plants toward the front of the fountain. This effect is re ally intense if you install y our fountain in a corner area on your deck. If you install your fountain in y our yard, you can surr ound it with seasonal flowers to create a great space to get away from the daily stresses of everyday life. In short, you can make y our project as simple or as involved as you want but the end result will be satisfying no matter which course you take. So go ahead and dig in today and start relaxing tomorrow! J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.
