Have an event planned this spring or summer? Learn how to make sure your community learns about it.P ageA6Super Shot gets the drop on 13 year old Stuart residents Elizabeth Vega and Fahrra Coleman. The 55th Annual Martin County F air, was held at the Martin County Fairgrounds in Stuart. The fair r an Feb. 14 -22. Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographerCounty health department celebrates anniversaryMARTIN COUNTY The Florida D epartment of Health has been promoting, protecting and improving the health of Floridians for 125 y ears and Martin County has been part of that mission for 65. F or a century and a quarter the organization has provided education, emergency preparedness services, community health improvement and so much more. The state Legislature created the S tate Board of Health on Feb. 20, 1889, in response to yellow fever epidemics in Jacksonville and other port cities and has since dealt with everything from quarantines to water supply tests. Locally the Florida Department of H ealth Martin County provides environmental health services, a vital health department, school health services, even birth and death certificates. "P ublic health is a lot of things. It touches people from birth to death," said Renay Rouse, public information officer for Florida D epartment of Health Martin C ounty. In 20 09 they r esponded to the H1N1 outbreak by providing education and vaccination clinics. Last summer they strove to contain Rio's dengue fever outbreak by sending field teams to collect samples and inform locals. In their early years they set up clinics to screen residents for tuberculosis in 1949, offered a polio vaccine to students in 1957, investigated ground water contamination in the Golden Gate community in 1982 and a food poisoningV olunteer positions availableLooking to help your county government with y our time and talent?

Over the eight month period, thousands of sea turtles will emerge from the ocean to dig a nest on the beach and lay their eggs. In June tiny hatchlings will begin to make their way to the ocean. M ost Floridians are familiar with the triangle stakes scattered along beaches marking nests, but many don't realize that only a small percentage of them are marked and the primary reason isn't always for protection, but tracking population growth. E cological Associates of J ensen Beach is responsible for some of the turtle monitoring and marking along portions of Indian River, St. L ucie and Martin counties, but there are many agencies that cover the miles of beaches along the Treasure Coast. EAI just found the first nest of the season on Jupiter I sland on Feb. 20. "W e' re excited about that," said Niki Desjardin, project manager at EAI. B ut the fact is that sea turtles are endangered and threatened species and now that their nesting season has begun, there is much beachgoers can do to help protect the beloved creatures. The Florida Oceanographic Society in Stuart offers education and public outr each to the community, giving people a chance to learn, see turtles up close, and understand how to keep them safe. "O ur mission is to inspire environmental stewardship," said Michelle Byriel, education and exhibit specialist at FOS who leads the guided turtle walks in the summer that give individuals a chance to watch the nesting process. They're very important to our whole ecosystem and the environment that we live in," Ms. Byriel said. That's why it's so important for anyone visiting the beach or living on or near it to be cautious and conscientious. Ms. Byriel warns people not to leave trash and debris on the beach, including fishing line and plastic bags that can be especially dangerous for turtles, fill in any holes children might dig, and level any sand sculptures before they leave for the day. It 's also impermissible for anyone to conduct their own turtle walks. Curious intruders can easily frighten a turtle and deter it from nesting. FOS has a permit to conductLibrary celebrating 20 years of BookMania!MARTIN COUNTY The Martin C ounty Library System is celebrating 20 years of bringing together readers and writers in a celebration known as B ookMania! The one-day event invites book lovers from near and far to come together to learn about the authors of works they enjoy and maybe even gain a little insight into the worlds they have created with their books. "I t celebrates the passion for books and reading," said Diane Kimes of the Ma r tin County Library Foundation. The Foundation is producing B ookMania! for the first time, taking ov er from the Martin County Library S ystem that has organized the event in the past. According to Ms. Kimes, the switch removes the strain of planning and scheduling from the library staff and allows the Library Foundation to focus on sustaining and growing the event. B ut that's not all that's new this y ear. For the first time BookMania! will take place at the more centrally located Martin County High School instead of Jensen Beach High School. There are also new attractions like a writer's workshop and a panel of y oung adult fiction writers. As for the authors, they run the gamut of experience and genre. Scheduled to take part in panels and offer special commentaries are debut authors, local authors and New York T imes bestselling authors. Among them are Palm City resident Mary Dawson who wrote "The River way Home," BookMania! r eturning author Dani Shapiro and Claire Bidwell Smith whose memoir "T he Rules of Inheritance" is being adapted for the silver screen. They're all fabulous," said Ms. K imes, who is trying to read as many of the participating authors' works as she can before the event. O ther authors include Carol Andersen, Laura Atchison, Judith Ba r nes Ph.D., Tom Clavin, Jan Green, Rick Kogan, Marjan Kamali, Michelle M adow, Said Sayrafiezadeh, Sonia T aitz and Karen Thompson Walker.

FORT PIERCE Virginia C ollege's state-of-the-art campus is ready to take on the newest batch of eager college students. The 74,000-square foot building, which once housed a bank's operation center on U.S. 1, has been transformed into a cutting-edge education center. The fully equipped classrooms include a hightech surgical setting, a behind-the-scenes setting for culinary arts, a full-service salon, complete pharmacy r eplica, a library, study areas, lecture rooms, classrooms and a student lounge, just to name a few. C ampus president Vincent F emia is excited about what the college means for the area. "R esearch led Virginia College to this area," Mr. Femia said. "There's a need for a college which gets students to their goal of being gainfully employed. That's our mission. We want to get students into the classroom so they can get into the workforce." Mr. Femia, who recently r elocated to Fort Pierce from B aton Rouge has been with the college for some time and was the former president of the Virginia College's Baton R ouge campus. There are 27 campuses around the south east," Mr. F emia said. "Classes are flexible. There are many students who work, are parents, and have things that make being in the classroom all day difficult. There are online classes and evening classes to make things easier for the student. We also have a great team of counselors whose mission it is to make the transition into the college lifestyle easier for the student." The campus offers programs in business administration, cosmetology, culinary arts, healthcare reimbursement, medical assistant (diploma), medical assistant (AS), medical billing and coding and pharmacy technician. Additional programs that will be offered include pastry arts and surgical technology. "S tudents who graduate from Virginia College are r eady for the work environment," Mr. Femia said on a tour of the spacious facility. Whether it's learning how to properly dispense medication here at the college, which has the exact replicas of machines at any of the local pharmacies, or whether it's learning proper techniques to be used in the surgical envir onment to learning how to operate a full-service salon, to working in a state-of-the-art kitchen, there's everything here under one roof." S tudents involved in any of the medical programs participate in an externship at local doctor's offices and hospitals. The salon at the facility will offer deeply discounted services to the public in an effort to ready students for the workforce and offer an alternative for residents who want to indulge in the full-service salon experience. The national accredited school will employ approximately 125 faculty and staff members at the Fort Pierce campus, which has intentions, and space, to expand. "W e' re very excited about being in the Fort Pierce area and serving the surrounding communities," Mr. Femia said. "The reception from area employers and from local organizations has been ov erwhelming. This is going to be such a wonderful addition to an already great community." Vi r ginia College has begun enrolling students at 2810 S. U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce. Classes will begin April 7, with upcoming open houses for the community.

BUSINESSSalon aims to bring out the best in their clientsSTUART Shear Perfection isn't just in the business of beauty, they're in the business of building confidence. The full service salon opened in 2005 and is owned by Sue Santavicca. She's been a stylist for 25 years but wanted to strike out on her own and do things her way while remaining in an industry she loves. So she opened a salon that offers everything from hair color and extensions to full body waxes and facials, kid's cuts to men's cuts and manicures to microdermabrasion. The salon uses all the latest products and the employees keep abreast of all the latest techniques and trends so they can offer their clients the best in the business. What we pride ourselves on is our ability to embrace new items that bring out the best [our clients] can be," Ms. S antavicca said. The stylists all strive to be the best they can be, too, attending training throughout the year to ensure they're offering their clients the best experience. They love what they do and when y ou love what you do it really shows," Ms. Santavicca said. "O ur stylists take pride in what they do," said salon coordinator Jessica S torey. That includes offering everyone who walks through the door attention and service, not to mention cookies, coffee and wine, that makes them feel like they're a VIP. What we strive for is to make you look as good as you feel," Ms. Storey said. "We bring out the beauty in people." The staff is also always on the lookout for the client's best interests, ensuring they are satisfied with every service, but r efusing to compromise quality. Ms. S torey said stylists won't perform any service that might compromise the quality of the client's hair. S hear Perfection also specializes in corrective color, fixing bad color from previous color treatments. N ew clients at Shear Perfection get $10 off any service worth $40 or more as an incentive to give the salon a try. "W e' re confident that once you give us a try you're going to love us," Ms. Santavicca said. S hear Perfection is located at 6554 S. K anner Highway in Stuart and can be r eached at (772) 286-0550.

Photo courtesy of the Martin County School District Dogs over kids?Y ou said you have reported child abuse to the Department of Children and Families and they do nothing about it? The next time you see or know of a child being abused, call DCF and the police and tell them a dog is being abused and you will see them turn up in a rush to save that dog, It seems people don't give a crap about children anymore .It's the poor, abused dogs. I think people have really gone nuts. They seem to think more of dogs then they do kids, and to think the taxpayers are paying the people that work at DCF to sit on their butts and do nothing about the abuse of children. They need to be investigated.Don't extend benefitsIf the left gets its way, unemployment compensation will go on forever. The number of job seekers dwarfs the number of jobs available. Therefore, extended benefits do much more harm than they do good. Paying people not to work incentivizes them not to look for work. E xtending payments, as suggested by President Obama, increases the likelihood that they will have a much more difficult time reentering the workforce. He believes recipients will vote for him. He should be much more concerned about America's financial wellbeing as well as America's future.L eave your dogs at homeI have noticed that many people bring their dogs into grocery stores. I would think that is a violation of the health codes. These people put their dogs in the grocery carts, many times in the child seat. Do they realize that dogs do not wear depends or use toilet paper and that the next person is going to put their food in the cart the dog just got out of? I have a friend that has a child that is severely allergic to dog hair. They put their child in a cart and the child started to have a hard time breathing. They then noticed that the child seat was covered with dog hair. I have owned dogs all my life, they were a family member, but if we were going somewhere the dog should not the dog stayed home.Don't vote for HillaryWe made a terrible mistake when we voted for the first black president, ignoring his lack of credentials for the office. Let's not make a similar mistake by electing an unqualified woman, just because she is a female. As Secr etary of State, Hillary Clinton cheapened the lives of four brave Americans who were killed in Benghazi. We should be certain the first woman president is qualified but, above all else, honest and truthful.F ed up with the system?K udos to another person who is fed up with the welfare system as it is. You want to fix it? Then vote out every freaking liberal politician you can. Those up in Washington have the thoughts that by upping the minim wage will fix the problem. No, there are those who are poverty stricken by no fault of their own, but there are some by choice, mainly because they want that government check. The liberals miss the mark in our country. We have an education system that is paid for by the working class. It's called the public school system. Then we have another system, also paid by the working class and their tax payer dollars it's called the public library system. The library does a free r eading class for toddlers. How many single mothers bring the kids to this? I know a few people who have daughters on the system and have more than one kid. These people are great manipulators and they'll twist the truth to fit their needs. They make great actors as well. Mid-term elections are approaching, and now is the time to clean house and senate. For those who dislike these types of r ants, well bottom line, you don't want to hear the truth. T wo ideas for SebastianI just read that the city Of Sebastian has a budget surplus of $5.5 million dollars and that the budget director said now is the time to spend some of it, I agree. I have two suggestions. First, I suggest that the citywide drainage problem be fixed. I have lived here for four years, my neighbor, a lot longer, and the problem remains the same. Why doesn't a member of council take the bull by the horns and get it fixed? Second, it is time to get rid of the septic tanks and get a sewer system. I know this is an expensive project, but with federal and state funding, it can be done. The remaining costs for the project could be financed by the city and r epaid in installments by property owners. I believe these two completed projects would increase property values and also help to save the Lagoon.News for toll road usersF or the toll patrons that still stop and get a ticket from the automatic dispenser, you will note that the tickets are stamped with the time that you received the tickets . and they expire 12 hours later. When they are expired, the collector is required to charge you the maximum distance from that particular plaza. As long as you aren't planning to be gone, from the plaza that you entered, more than 11 hours and 59 minutes the following will save you money: (1) If, when you stop and pick up your ticket, there are no cars behind you, you can back up (safely) about 20 feet and then pull back up to the ticket machine it will dispense another ticket. This second ticket can be used, as long as you exit at the same plaza that you entered, as a U-turn priced ticket. U-turn costs at every plaza are different but if you entered the toll road at the Port St. Lucie plaza and returned 11 hours later, for example, the collector would charge you 40 cents even though you got your ticket from Lantana an hour earlier ... just don't use the Lantana ticket at exit plaza. And, if you commute back and forth to work every day, you can do this every day. The deputy director of tolls knows that the machines don't always dispense a ticket when a vehicle pulls up but if you leave without a ticket, she has directed that the collectors, when you get off at your exit plaza to charge you the maximum distance unless you can produce proof of where you entered earlier and didn't get a ticket. The collectors don't have a choice in what they are required to do. C ollectors have been directed, through a memo posted at the plazas to make these unreasonable charges. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Many people are surprised when they get their new machine home and someone sends them email with a Wo rd or XL document attached and they cannot open it. The assumption people make is, if they get a machine with enough horsepower, RAM and hard drive space that it ought to do anything they need it to and, to a degree that is true. But the one thing that's missing is the software (or program) to do the job. Pr ograms that are installed after Windows are loaded enhance the system and allow the computer to run at its full potential. What programs we need installed depends on the files that we are trying to open and work with. A lot of the files that we work with on the Internet, such as .jpg, .html and .txt files all will open with the built in Windows applications (called "applets") but other files, such as .xls, .doc, .pdf and .ppt need programs that specifically handle those kinds of files. The three-letter extension is what identifies to the computer what kind of file it is, what icon to display for it and what program to use to open it. If the program that is r equired to open a file is not installed on the machine, then the file will be displayed with a generic Windows icon. When you try to open it, the computer will open a screen listing all the installed applications asking what program you want to use to open it. The computer takes a look at the file, doesn't r ecognize it so it lists all the programs installed and lets y ou pick what program to open it with because it doesn't have a clue. U nfortunately, when we see that program list, usually we don't have a clue what to open it with either, for the same reason the computer got stumped: there is no program installed for that type of file. So that brings us back to the beginning with the question of what programs does a typical computer need installed, on top of Windows, in order to be able to handle most of the file formats that everyone else in the world is using? Why is it that some machines can already handle certain files and some machines cannot? And, when y ou buy a computer, what should you look for as far as "bundled" software goes? Let's take the last question first and talk about "bundled" software. Some computer manufacturers have made deals with software vendors to "bundle" their software with every computer they sell. They, of course, get some sort of commission for including the software in with the price of the machine, but where things get tricky is every computer manufacturer has a different bundling agreement (or none at all) so every computer comes with different software loaded on top of Windows. What that means is one computer bought from one manufacturer will usually have different software installed than what may be installed in another computer of the same hardware specs (horsepower) from another manufacturer. Whew. S ay that one three times fast! OK, so you've decided to get a new computer. What bundled software should you look for (above and beyond W indows) that will allow you to do some of the more common tasks without getting the dreaded "unknown file type message?" W ell, the most common bundle that ought to be installed is some level of office suite. An office suite, (such as MS Office, Open Office or even Wo r ks Office), is a package of software to handle Word processing, spreadsheets, databases, etc.; a must-have for productivity. F or things such as .pdf files (adobe portable document) the Acrobat reader can be installed. Adobe Reader and O pen Office are free and can sometimes be found bundled with other software or easily downloaded from the I nternet. But that is the subject of another column altogether.

"Like a good neighbor,State F arm is there.You're in good hands with Allstate.Saving people money for over 75 years (GEICO).Think easier;think Pr ogressive.Nationwide is on your side."You've heard all of these slogans thousands of times and seen the warm and fuzzy ads on television too many times. I can tell y ou from personal experience o wning and operating body shops for 46 years, insurance companies are not like good neighbors. I nsurance companies are the most profitable companies on Earth, but you can't always tell that by their tax r eturns or financial statements. Insurance companies are sheltered from paying taxes like other corporations must do because they can, and are required, to "reserve" large amounts of cash contingent to paying claims. Then they take those huge hoards of cash and wisely invest them in stocks, bonds, real estate, etc. so that they can grow those cash reserves. When y ou pay a monthly premium to your car insurance company, they don't pay any income tax on that. They invest it and grow that premium, compounding it over the years. Only after years of accumulating your premiums and growing that cash through investments do insurance companies begin to pay income taxes. This continuous, compounding tax deferr al is how Warren Buffet made the bulk of his vast fortune. How did insurance companies come to win this great tax advantage over all other corporations? They can afford to pay the best and most powerful lobbyist, in Washington D .C. and all 50 states. When a big insurance company says "jump" our elected officials say "how high." For a politician to vote against a bill that B ig Insurance wants is political suicide. I have nothing against profit and I applaud those companies that make large profits. U nder our capitalist system and the free market place, those companies that can provide the best products and services and satisfy the customers the best should prosper. I have a problem with companies that make their large profits by distorting the tax code to favor their companies over others and that earn greater profits by exploiting their customers and associates. C ollision insurance companies pay body shops less than $50 per hour to repair your car after it has been damaged in a collision. Car manufacturers pay mechanical service departments over $100 to fix y our car when it has a mechanical problem, more than twice what insurance pays for body repair. Mechanical and body repair technicians are typically paid a commission based on the amount of labor they perform. This commission is a percentage of what the insurance company or manufacturer pays the service department or body shop. It follows that body r epair technicians earn far less than their mechanical technical counterparts. No w, here's the rub! Body r epair technicians are at least as well trained and skilled as mechanical repair techs. In fact, there is a greater shortage of good body repair techs than mechanical. One would think that the laws of supply and demand would command a higher wage for body r epair techs, or at least the same as mechanical techs. B ut they make much less. This is where you come into the picture. Let's say your car has been in a bad accident incurr ing thousands of dollars in damages. You want it repaired r ight, not just so it looks as good as it did before, but, more importantly, so it's as safe as it was before. You want to be sure that the technician who repairs your car knows and cares what he's doing! Yo u' ve heard the expression, "Y ou get what you pay for." This means that if you hire a plumber to fix your clogged sink because he agreed to charge you half the hourly r ate of what all the other plumbers were charging, it's likely that the problem wasn't corrected the it should have been. The reason that body repair technicians are paid so little is because the insurance companies mandate it. About 95percent of all auto repair work is paid for by insurance. I nsurance companies largely control which body shops r epair the vehicle of the insured. Each insurance company has a list of "preferred body shops." If body shops are not on the preferred lists of any insurance companies, it's very likely that they won't be able to remain in business. One of the requirements to be on that list is to charge the insurance company what they say you can charge. The insurance companies claim to arrive at these hourly rates by market studies, but the studies are bogus and rigged to come up with an hourly rate far below what it should be. The body shops and the insurance companies know that it's impossible to repair cars safely and properly at the hourly rate they pay so they do what they have to do" to get around that rate. The insurance companies force the body shops to use cheap after-market or used parts when new original manufacturer's parts should be used. I nsurance companies also "look the other way" when body shops repair or straighten a metal part that should have been replaced, but cost more. Most of the damage that's done to a car in a collision is below the surface and invisible after the repair is completed. This means that all visible evidence of substandard and unsafe repairs is hidden. The customer comes in to pick up her car and it "looks great." She may never how many short cuts were taken so that the car could be r epaired for what the insurance company was willing to pay. My advice to you if you have a car in need of body repair is be sure that you choose the body shop, not your insurance company. Check out this body shop carefully, just like yo u' d check out a doctor or dentist for yourself or a family member.

Families receive donation from Bar Mitzvah candidateWhen 13-year-old Judah Lebofsky had to choose a M itzvah project for his Bar M itzvah he was a little apprehensive about how he could make a positive impact on his community. A Mitzvah project is a charitable service project that is conducted before a B ar Mitzvah, the Jewish coming-of-age ceremony. One evening, his mother, Jill Lebofsky, returned home from an event where a speaker from SafeSpace discussed the organization's mission to provide shelter and other assistance to victims of domestic violence. "M y mom told me about S afeSpace and how kids and their mothers sometimes have to leave all of their belongings and run away in the night to safety at the SafeS pace shelter," said Judah. "I thought a great idea for my M itzvah project would be to collect books for SafeSpace because most people enjoy r eading, and a good book can be a comfort and escape from the real world." S afeSpace is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that operates programs in Martin, S t. Lucie, and Indian River counties where families are provided with a safe environment through emergency shelter and outreach services. The organization offers victims of domestic violence safety, support, and education to empower them and provide the assistance necessary to set a positive direction and gain control over their own lives. W ith the project and beneficiaries in mind, Judah worked hard to spread the word about what he was doing. It was a team effort, as his family shared the information through a newsletter, word of mouth, and social media. Judah also hosted a book drive contest for his classmates at Hidden Oaks M iddle School where he was able to collect 300 books. He also had a collection box placed at his temple, Temple B eit HaYam, and was able to gather books from the congregation as well. In total Judah collected 725 books for the benefit of families receiving shelter and support through SafeSpace. When he realized he collected far more books than he anticipated, Judah decided to use some of the money he r eceived as Bar Mitzvah gifts from family and friends to purchase bookshelves to house the books at the shelter. "I t' s heartening to know that a young man would take an interest in our mission, and that, of all the possibilities for a Mitzvah project, Judah chose SafeSpace to be the beneficiary of his generosity," said Jill Borowicz, SafeSpace CEO. "Not only are we grateful to Judah for the donation of the books and the bookcases, but he is helping to spread awareness about our organization and the work we do, and helping us to connect to y ounger generations."

Practice on call for deliveries MARTIN COUNTY For many expectant mothers, knowing they will be able to give birth at a hospital close to home is important to their peace of mind. What some women may not be aware of is the hospital nearest to them may not be the one where their doctor maintains privileges to deliver their baby. Gynecological and obstetrics practices, like other medical practices, have hospital affiliations, sometimes with only one hospital. F or women wanting to deliver their babies in Martin County at Martin Medical Center (formerly known as Martin Memorial Medical C enter), the only practice on call for obstetrics at that location is Physicians To W omen based in Stuart. "P hysicians To Women has been delivering babies in Martin County for 30 y ears," said Dr. Michael H ochman, a partner in the P hysicians To Women gynecological and obstetrics practice. "We want our curr ent and future patients to know they can continue to depend on us to deliver their babies at Martin Medical Center in Stuart. As far as we know, we are now the only medical practice that provides comprehensive women's health care services and also delivers babies in Martin County." Du r ing the past 30 years, the practice's physicians have helped welcome thousands of Martin County babies into the world. In 2013, Physicians To Women delivered 565 babies at Martin Medical Center. The practice's recent decision to maintain their affiliation with Martin Medical Center means their patients will still be able to give birth in the county that many of them call home. P hysicians To Women's services go beyond delivering babies as the practice offers an array of women's health care services. Their r ange of care includes comprehensive gynecological services for women from adolescence through the post-menopausal years, as w ell as in-office digital mammography exams for age-appropriate patients. Whether guiding a patient through a healthy pregnancy or providing other health care services, P hysicians To Women's goal is comfort and peace of mind for our patients. Continuing our practice of delivering babies in Martin C ounty is just one way we can do this," said Dr. H ochman. P hysicians To Women is an advanced gynecological and obstetrics practice in S tuart, Florida, with a satellite office in St. Lucie County. For more than 30 years, the practice has been providing exceptional health care services for women.

While he didn't want a big fancy party, he was surr ounded by family and friends for a private, informal gathering that included cake and ice cream at the woodworking shop of the boat yard he founded in 1947. Mr. Whiticar first came to the Treasure Coast at the age of 6 with his parents and two brothers. Mr. Whiticar built his first boat when he was 14, displaying a talent which ultimately led him to establish the business that bears his name. Mr. Whiticar's artistry in boat design and boat building was the foundation for the business that has operated in Stuart for more than 65 y ears. "We've built our reputation at Mr. Whiticar Boat Wo r ks on what Curt Whiticar started many years ago. Our longevity and reputation in this community are tributes to his influence," said Jim Dr agseth, president of Whiticar. S ince retiring from the boat building business, Whiticar exhibits his artistry through oil paintings. An avid artist, he has created more than 1,450 paintings in his lifetime. An image of one of his paintings a leaping sailfish adorned his birthday cake. At birthday parties, gifts are normally presented to the person celebrating the milestone. However, because Mr. Whiticar didn't want his party to be boring, his guests had a chance to receive a special gift from him one of his paintings. Longtime friends Al and Dottie Shire won the raffle to r eceive the painting, which Mr. Whiticar described as r epresenting two fishermen at a beachside fishing shack r eminiscing about the days when the Indian River was full of pompano, trout and snook. The Shires, like many attendees, could also reminisce about times spent with Whiticar through the years. "W e played golf together for years and when he was 96 y ears old, he was still beating us," said Mr. Shire. When asked what was his secret to longevity, Whiticar r esponded, "hard work." Then, he also added, "keeping busy." Mr. Whiticar still keeps busy, especially through his art, actively painting and making his own frames. While he no longer works at the boat yard, Mr. Whiticar's connection with the employees of Whiticar Boat Works and its many divisions S hearwater Marine, Whiticar Y acht Sales, Whiticar Custom B oats and Whiticar Marine No r th in Fort Pierce was evident when employees attending the celebration came up to him to wish him w ell.

C ounty Office of Consumer Affairs. Google the company and check out their online r atings. Your insurance companies will try hard to persuade you to use their "preferred shop". They will tell y ou that they won't guarantee the repair unless you take it here. If you pick a good body shop, that shop will give you as good, or better, guarantee on their work than the insurance company. Be sure that the body shop you choose is on your side and not the insurance company's. Explain that you want new parts, not used, r ebuilt, or after-market. If the insurance company objects, stand shoulder to shoulder with your body shop and demand that the r epair be done properly and safely. If the insurance company still gives you a hard time, tell them that you will take them to court and they will usually back down. S ome body shops will do this for you, but you have to assign your rights to litigate on your behalf to that body shop. If this sounds like too much trouble, it's not as bad as it sounds. Insurance companies know that they are doing the wrong thing and they don't like to go to court or attract attention. You will be surprised how often people like you who have the courage to stand up to Big I nsurance will find them backing down. MARTIN COUTNY The power of "thank you" is the central theme of House of H ope's 15th annual Hearts for Hope Luncheon, which will be held March 24 at Sailfish Point Country Club. J ohn Kralik, author of "A S imple Act of Gratitude," is the featured speaker. In his book, Kralik discusses how during a period of hardship he was inspired to begin writing thank you notes as a way to feel grateful for the good things in his life. He set a goal of writing 365 notes in the coming year, and immediately after sending his very first notes, significant and surprising benefits began to come his way. Thank-you note by thank-you note, his whole life turned around. Mr. Kralik's uplifting memoir provides an example that everyone can follow, and guests at Hearts for Hope will r eceive a special gift to help carry out this inspiration. The event is part of the agency's 30th anniversary celebration. Since 1984, H ouse of Hope has been fighting hunger and hardship in Martin County and today touches more than 5,000 people per month with services that include food, clothing, furniture, financial assistance, information & r eferral, and life-changing case management services to local people in need. H earts for Hope begins at 10:30 a.m. with unique shopping opportunities, including about a dozen distinctive vendors with custom jewelry and accessories as well as treasures from H ouse of Hope. A variety of prizes have been donated for a special drawing. The grand prize is a necklace valued at $5,500, donated and designed by T erry Rieger of Diamonds by T erry. The 18-inch necklace features a sculpted leopard ornament with diamonds, S terling silver, 14kt gold, pearls and smoky quartz beads. The Hearts for Hope committee is led by chairwoman J ennifer Feltman and includes Mary Armbrust, J ane Coton, Jane Buss, Judy D ean, Cindy Ehrhardt, Pat F errara, Larabee Johnson, Laura Keech, Carla King and B etty Springer. The event's presenting sponsor once again is The P edersen Family Foundation, represented by Gail P edersen Pfister. Re servations for the luncheon are $125 per person and can be made online at www.hohmartin.org/hearts or by calling (772) 286-4673, E xt. 1011.

M any counties, including Ma r tin, St. Lucie and Indian River, have ordinances limiting or prohibiting lights on the beach during nesting season, including porch lights on homes on or near the beach. Lamps, flashlights and camera flashes can all disorient nesting turtles. There's a lot for the public to be aware of when they're out on the beach," Ms. Desjardin said. She advised visitors to keep dogs from digging on the beach and not disturb the trails sea turtles leave behind that mark where their nests are and allow organizations like EAI to collect their data. As nesting season begins, conservation organizations and the general public can work together to protect the leatherback, loggerhead and green sea turtles that use local beaches to lay their eggs.T urtlesF rom page A1 EarlF rom page A7

There will be bagpipers, step dancers, food vendors, and plenty of green beer at the event that Amber D ucote and Lindsay Nickerson decided to produce on a whim for the first time last y ear. They wanted to bring the S t. Patrick's Day festivals they had enjoyed in places like Atlanta and Savannah to St uart, so they decided to organize their own. "W e thought, hey, why not host a St. Patrick's Day event and see what we can do with it," said Ms. Ducote who o wns KaleidoMinds Marketing. So they reserved Gazebo Pa rk in Stuart, booked some bands, and threw a party. "I t was an absolute blast," Ms. Ducote said. This year will be even better, she explained. Up r oot Hootenanny, an Ir ish band that was a huge hit at last year's festival, will be performing again this y ear, Southern Eagle will be providing the beer and there will even be an Irish whisky bar. Face painting, crafts and bounce houses will keep the kids busy while the adults take turns at the beer pong tables and a DJ will keep the lively atmosphere r olling between live performances. "W e' re going to blow them away with some great entertainment this year," Ms. D ucote said. Like last year, a King and Q ueen of the Green will also be crowned, so be sure to arrive in your most festive S t. Patty's Day wear if you want a chance at winning $50 in cash, gift certificates and free drink tickets. And mad respect," Ms. D ucote said. Pa rt of the proceeds from the event will go to Moustache March for the Military, an organization that provides support to families of fallen soldiers. There will be a plethora of green moustaches on hand to help raise awareness and support the cause. T ickets for the event are $5 in advance or at the door, but festivalgoers who purchase their pass online at www.kaleidominds.com prior to the event receive a free drink ticket.

T en years ago, Ms. Arenas decided to open a cafŽ that served popular dishes such as bacon and eggs, hamburgers, homemade soups and tasty side dishes like Fr ench fries and onion r ings. A decade and another location later, and things are going better than ever at American CafŽ. "W e have a great, consistent crowd," Ms. Arenas said. "Regulars come in to this location and to the one in Stuart. They always know what they want and we try to make them as happy as possible." The spacious dining room is comfortably decorated, with plenty of seating available for a quiet lunch for two or for breakfast for the whole family. My guest and I were treated to some of the items from Ms. Arenas' newest additions to the menu: TexM ex. "I 'v e added some really great dishes like fajitas pescado a la Mexicana, TexM ex pizza, Rio Grande salad and burritos," Ms. Arenas said. "Along with the staples of my menu, these dishes add a flair that I'm really happy about." Ms. Arenas prepared the Rio Grande salad and Ma ri a' s Chili Bowl for my guest and me to try. The salad was full of perfectly seasoned shrimp and chicken. The fresh lettuce and tomatoes were topped with black olives, cheese and fresh guacamole. Ma ri a' s Chili Bowl is healthy serving of chili served in a deep-fried tortilla and topped with melted cheese and onions. This meal is incredible and is more than enough to be shared. Ms. Arenas served us a lamb gyro and her popular P hilly cheesesteaks. The gyro is served with thinly sliced lamb, lettuce, tomato and a special sauce. The cheesesteak can be served with either beef or chicken and is topped with melted cheese, onions, mushrooms and peppers. Either of these sandwiches, which are served with French fries, would be an ideal choice for lunch. O ther popular menu items include sausage and gravy, served over fresh, warm biscuits, turkey and r oast beef sandwiches, BLT's and an array of breakfast items which are served all day. The portions are huge, prices are incredible, staff is friendly and attentive and the food, five-star. It's well worth a trip for either breakfast or lunch. You won't be disappointed.

Kowalczyk kicked off the next chapter in his career by releasing a new solo album and revisiting his complete body of work with the I Alone Acoustic Tour. H ailing from Atlanta, Collective Soul shot to international fame with their 1993 r elease Hints, Allegations and Things Left Unsaid, and their mega, No. 1 hit, Shine. The self-titled Collective S oul, released in March of 1995, the album that helped define their sound of catchy melodies and guitar driven songs. Containing four outstanding singles (three of which reached No.1), D ecember, The World I Know, Where The River Fl o ws and Gel, it became C ollective Soul's highest selling album to date. The album went Triple-Platinum and spent 76 weeks on the B illboard Top 200 charts. O ther songs they are known for include: Precious D eclaration, Listen, Heavy, Why, Part 2, Vent, Better No w, and Perfect Day, a duet with Sir Elton John. Tremble F or My Beloved found Collective Soul on the soundtrack to the 2008 Twilight movie. The long awaited ninth studio album, See What You S tarted By Continuing, to be r eleased in summer of 2014, fully embodies the journey that Collective Soul has taken musically and personally throughout the last two decades. As a band we have experienced and developed so much as musicians and people in the last twenty years," said Ed Roland, Collective S oul front man. "This album r epresents a full circle, coming back to the roots of Collective Soul, and continuing to build on the music that we started making from the beginning."

Ga r dening offers exercise, lots of fresh air, mental therapy and the savings you r eap when you pick veggies from your own garden. This w eek, I am going to discuss some tips on getting your garden ready for planting and offer some tips on what to plant. When planning a vegetable garden, it is important to choose a location that is we ll drained and near your structure. The location needs to be in an area where y ou have a readily available source of water. The garden should also be in an area where the plants will receive at least five hours of sunlight. Areas with too much shade or sun all day long will cause problems with the growth of your plants. Too little sun can lead to fungus diseases and low crop yields. T oo much sun can cause burning of the plants and a r educed crop yield. Remember that you should not plant your garden in the same location year after y ear. The soil will get depleted of vital nutrients so it is best to rotate your locations each year. In F lorida, our soil is very sandy so it is essential to add organic nutrients to the soil. If y ou have a compost pile, use the organic matter from it and spread it throughout the area you plant to plant in. You can also buy premixed top soils that contain organic material to mix throughout your garden area. It is always a good idea to test the pH value of your soil. These meters can be purchased at many home and garden centers. The ph v alue of your soil should lie somewhere between 5.6 and 7.0. If the pH of your soil is low, add some lime to your soil before planting. A pH that is too high is actually difficult to change but adding the organic matter will relax it a bit. Once your garden is plowed, composted and checked for pH, it's time to get started. It is always a good idea to get some good quality vegetable fertilizer and all-purpose insect spray designed for vegetables and fruits. You will need both in the not too distant future. No w that your plot is r eady, it's time to populate it with seeds or liners. You might want to start with some of your old favorites such as tomatoes, carrots, r adishes or peppers. These are some of the easier plants to grow, especially if you are going to start from seed. You might want to take the challenge, however, and try some more challenging choices such as squash, watermelon, southern peas or eggplant. It is important to remember that if you live in a location that does not allow y ou to plant in the yard such as an apartment, you can always resort to planting y our seeds in large containers with excellent results. This has the added benefit of being able to move your garden in the event of severe w eather events. In the coming weeks I will address some specific plants such as tomatoes, lettuce and other garden varieties. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

W ould easier courses lure players? While at the PGA Merchandise Show, I find many different things to report on. This year there was an idea throw out to those in attendance. The man tossing the idea out there was Ma rk K ing, CEO of TaylorM ade Golf. King would like to make golf a little bit easier for the high handicapper and the beginner. The way he thinks would best work is to make the hole bigger. The regulation golf hole is 4-1/4-inches in diameter. U nder King's proposal, courses would cut holes 15-inches in diameter. This would speed up play, because fewer putts equals less time on the green... especially over those knee-knocking four-footers. It would also make the game much easier once you got onto the green as well as when chipping. We all want to shoot lower scores. But do you honestly think someone breaking 80 for the first time because every putt they hit fell into a wash bucket instead of missing a standard hole is going to feel that they have truly accomplished something? Golf is struggling. Ask any course owner, general manager or head professional and they will tell you rounds are down. Golf is a difficult game and making it easier may bring more people in the door to try the game. A bigger cup will only solve one problem. Sinking putts will become easier. But what about hitting a fairway from the tee or even the green if you get the first step right? If y ou ask the companies making clubs or the stores selling them and they will tell y ou that people are not buying new clubs, balls and so forth. The price of admission is pretty hefty. Fourteen clubs, a bag, shoes, and some silly plaid shorts come at a cost. Granted not everyone gets en expensive set of clubs right off the bat, but even the cheap stuff runs a few hundred dollars. If you go for used, there is a chance the technology isn't new either and won't help y ou when you most need it, which is when you are first learning the game. Ev en if you pick up some decent clubs or are fortunate enough to have some given to y ou, there is still the price to actually play. Just a bucket of balls will run you around $10. Once you decide to play, you are talking much more. How many courses are going to want to invest in new cups? Would you use them once a week? Would you have two holes on each green? What is the risk you run off more players than you bring in by trying this idea? M aybe we need a different set of rules to help those just beginning the game. Maybe we need equipment that allows them to play better with less skill. Perhaps courses should consider allowing GOLFJAMES STAM MER www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 28, 2014 Martin County B5 Gift Certificates A vailable!Abundant Health & Wellness Dr. William Lampard, MD1609 Port St. Lucie Blvd € Port St. Lucie, Fl 34952772-398-0067088630The patient and any other person responsible for the payment has the right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed pa yment for any services, examination or treatment which is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for the free services, exami nation or treatment .The patient and any other person responsible for the payment has the right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed payment for any servic es, examination or treatment.

for players to play six holes instead of at least nine. Some new routing designs are doing just this making for cheaper fees and play that only takes about an hour. Tr uth is a vast majority play this game for the love and fun of it. They don't really follow the rules and they enjoy themselves without worrying just what rule 13-1 says. I don't want to take away from those who want the challenge and wish for the winner to be the one with the most skill.

Have an event planned this spring or summer? Learn how to make sure your community learns about it.P ageA6Super Shot gets the drop on 13 year old Stuart residents Elizabeth Vega and Fahrra Coleman. The 55th Annual Martin County F air, was held at the Martin County Fairgrounds in Stuart. The fair r an Feb. 14 -22. Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographerCounty health department celebrates anniversaryMARTIN COUNTY The Florida D epartment of Health has been promoting, protecting and improving the health of Floridians for 125 y ears and Martin County has been part of that mission for 65. F or a century and a quarter the organization has provided education, emergency preparedness services, community health improvement and so much more. The state Legislature created the S tate Board of Health on Feb. 20, 1889, in response to yellow fever epidemics in Jacksonville and other port cities and has since dealt with everything from quarantines to water supply tests. Locally the Florida Department of H ealth Martin County provides environmental health services, a vital health department, school health services, even birth and death certificates. P ublic health is a lot of things. It touches people from birth to death, said Renay Rouse, public information officer for Florida D epartment of Health Martin C ounty. In 20 09 they r esponded to the H1N1 outbreak by providing education and vaccination clinics. Last summer they strove to contain Rios dengue fever outbreak by sending field teams to collect samples and inform locals. In their early years they set up clinics to screen residents for tuberculosis in 1949, offered a polio vaccine to students in 1957, investigated ground water contamination in the Golden Gate community in 1982 and a food poisoningV olunteer positions availableLooking to help your county government with y our time and talent?

Over the eight month period, thousands of sea turtles will emerge from the ocean to dig a nest on the beach and lay their eggs. In June tiny hatchlings will begin to make their way to the ocean. M ost Floridians are familiar with the triangle stakes scattered along beaches marking nests, but many dont realize that only a small percentage of them are marked and the primary reason isnt always for protection, but tracking population growth. E cological Associates of J ensen Beach is responsible for some of the turtle monitoring and marking along portions of Indian River, St. L ucie and Martin counties, but there are many agencies that cover the miles of beaches along the Treasure Coast. EAI just found the first nest of the season on Jupiter I sland on Feb. 20. W e re excited about that, said Niki Desjardin, project manager at EAI. B ut the fact is that sea turtles are endangered and threatened species and now that their nesting season has begun, there is much beachgoers can do to help protect the beloved creatures. The Florida Oceanographic Society in Stuart offers education and public outr each to the community, giving people a chance to learn, see turtles up close, and understand how to keep them safe. O ur mission is to inspire environmental stewardship, said Michelle Byriel, education and exhibit specialist at FOS who leads the guided turtle walks in the summer that give individuals a chance to watch the nesting process. Theyre very important to our whole ecosystem and the environment that we live in, Ms. Byriel said. Thats why its so important for anyone visiting the beach or living on or near it to be cautious and conscientious. Ms. Byriel warns people not to leave trash and debris on the beach, including fishing line and plastic bags that can be especially dangerous for turtles, fill in any holes children might dig, and level any sand sculptures before they leave for the day. It s also impermissible for anyone to conduct their own turtle walks. Curious intruders can easily frighten a turtle and deter it from nesting. FOS has a permit to conductLibrary celebrating 20 years of BookMania!MARTIN COUNTY The Martin C ounty Library System is celebrating 20 years of bringing together readers and writers in a celebration known as B ookMania! The one-day event invites book lovers from near and far to come together to learn about the authors of works they enjoy and maybe even gain a little insight into the worlds they have created with their books. I t celebrates the passion for books and reading, said Diane Kimes of the Mar tin County Library Foundation. The Foundation is producing B ookMania! for the first time, taking ov er from the Martin County Library S ystem that has organized the event in the past. According to Ms. Kimes, the switch removes the strain of planning and scheduling from the library staff and allows the Library Foundation to focus on sustaining and growing the event. B ut thats not all thats new this y ear. For the first time BookMania! will take place at the more centrally located Martin County High School instead of Jensen Beach High School. There are also new attractions like a writers workshop and a panel of y oung adult fiction writers. As for the authors, they run the gamut of experience and genre. Scheduled to take part in panels and offer special commentaries are debut authors, local authors and New York T imes bestselling authors. Among them are Palm City resident Mary Dawson who wrote The River way Home, BookMania! r eturning author Dani Shapiro and Claire Bidwell Smith whose memoir T he Rules of Inheritance is being adapted for the silver screen. Theyre all fabulous, said Ms. K imes, who is trying to read as many of the participating authors works as she can before the event. O ther authors include Carol Andersen, Laura Atchison, Judith Bar nes Ph.D., Tom Clavin, Jan Green, Rick Kogan, Marjan Kamali, Michelle M adow, Said Sayrafiezadeh, Sonia T aitz and Karen Thompson Walker.

FORT PIERCE Virginia C olleges state-of-the-art campus is ready to take on the newest batch of eager college students. The 74,000-square foot building, which once housed a banks operation center on U.S. 1, has been transformed into a cutting-edge education center. The fully equipped classrooms include a hightech surgical setting, a behind-the-scenes setting for culinary arts, a full-service salon, complete pharmacy r eplica, a library, study areas, lecture rooms, classrooms and a student lounge, just to name a few. C ampus president Vincent F emia is excited about what the college means for the area. Research led Virginia College to this area, Mr. Femia said. Theres a need for a college which gets students to their goal of being gainfully employed. Thats our mission. We want to get students into the classroom so they can get into the workforce. Mr. Femia, who recently r elocated to Fort Pierce from B aton Rouge has been with the college for some time and was the former president of the Virginia Colleges Baton R ouge campus. There are 27 campuses around the south east, Mr. F emia said. Classes are flexible. There are many students who work, are parents, and have things that make being in the classroom all day difficult. There are online classes and evening classes to make things easier for the student. We also have a great team of counselors whose mission it is to make the transition into the college lifestyle easier for the student. The campus offers programs in business administration, cosmetology, culinary arts, healthcare reimbursement, medical assistant (diploma), medical assistant (AS), medical billing and coding and pharmacy technician. Additional programs that will be offered include pastry arts and surgical technology. S tudents who graduate from Virginia College are r eady for the work environment, Mr. Femia said on a tour of the spacious facility. Whether its learning how to properly dispense medication here at the college, which has the exact replicas of machines at any of the local pharmacies, or whether its learning proper techniques to be used in the surgical envir onment to learning how to operate a full-service salon, to working in a state-of-the-art kitchen, theres everything here under one roof. S tudents involved in any of the medical programs participate in an externship at local doctors offices and hospitals. The salon at the facility will offer deeply discounted services to the public in an effort to ready students for the workforce and offer an alternative for residents who want to indulge in the full-service salon experience. The national accredited school will employ approximately 125 faculty and staff members at the Fort Pierce campus, which has intentions, and space, to expand. W e re very excited about being in the Fort Pierce area and serving the surrounding communities, Mr. Femia said. The reception from area employers and from local organizations has been ov erwhelming. This is going to be such a wonderful addition to an already great community. Vir ginia College has begun enrolling students at 2810 S. U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce. Classes will begin April 7, with upcoming open houses for the community. F or more information,visit www.vconline.edu or call (772) 448-2000.

Photo courtesy of the Martin County School District Dogs over kids?Y ou said you have reported child abuse to the Department of Children and Families and they do nothing about it? The next time you see or know of a child being abused, call DCF and the police and tell them a dog is being abused and you will see them turn up in a rush to save that dog, It seems people don't give a crap about children anymore .It's the poor, abused dogs. I think people have really gone nuts. They seem to think more of dogs then they do kids, and to think the taxpayers are paying the people that work at DCF to sit on their butts and do nothing about the abuse of children. They need to be investigated.Dont extend benefitsIf the left gets its way, unemployment compensation will go on forever. The number of job seekers dwarfs the number of jobs available. Therefore, extended benefits do much more harm than they do good. Paying people not to work incentivizes them not to look for work. E xtending payments, as suggested by President Obama, increases the likelihood that they will have a much more difficult time reentering the workforce. He believes recipients will vote for him. He should be much more concerned about America's financial wellbeing as well as America's future.L eave your dogs at homeI have noticed that many people bring their dogs into grocery stores. I would think that is a violation of the health codes. These people put their dogs in the grocery carts, many times in the child seat. Do they realize that dogs do not wear depends or use toilet paper and that the next person is going to put their food in the cart the dog just got out of? I have a friend that has a child that is severely allergic to dog hair. They put their child in a cart and the child started to have a hard time breathing. They then noticed that the child seat was covered with dog hair. I have owned dogs all my life, they were a family member, but if we were going somewhere the dog should not the dog stayed home.Dont vote for HillaryWe made a terrible mistake when we voted for the first black president, ignoring his lack of credentials for the office. Let's not make a similar mistake by electing an unqualified woman, just because she is a female. As Secr etary of State, Hillary Clinton cheapened the lives of four brave Americans who were killed in Benghazi. We should be certain the first woman president is qualified but, above all else, honest and truthful.F ed up with the system?K udos to another person who is fed up with the welfare system as it is. You want to fix it? Then vote out every freaking liberal politician you can. Those up in Washington have the thoughts that by upping the minim wage will fix the problem. No, there are those who are poverty stricken by no fault of their own, but there are some by choice, mainly because they want that government check. The liberals miss the mark in our country. We have an education system that is paid for by the working class. Its called the public school system. Then we have another system, also paid by the working class and their tax payer dollars its called the public library system. The library does a free r eading class for toddlers. How many single mothers bring the kids to this? I know a few people who have daughters on the system and have more than one kid. These people are great manipulators and they'll twist the truth to fit their needs. They make great actors as well. Mid-term elections are approaching, and now is the time to clean house and senate. For those who dislike these types of r ants, well bottom line, you dont want to hear the truth. T wo ideas for SebastianI just read that the city Of Sebastian has a budget surplus of $5.5 million dollars and that the budget director said now is the time to spend some of it, I agree. I have two suggestions. First, I suggest that the citywide drainage problem be fixed. I have lived here for four years, my neighbor, a lot longer, and the problem remains the same. Why doesn't a member of council take the bull by the horns and get it fixed? Second, it is time to get rid of the septic tanks and get a sewer system. I know this is an expensive project, but with federal and state funding, it can be done. The remaining costs for the project could be financed by the city and r epaid in installments by property owners. I believe these two completed projects would increase property values and also help to save the Lagoon.News for toll road usersF or the toll patrons that still stop and get a ticket from the automatic dispenser, you will note that the tickets are stamped with the time that you received the tickets . and they expire 12 hours later. When they are expired, the collector is required to charge you the maximum distance from that particular plaza. As long as you aren't planning to be gone, from the plaza that you entered, more than 11 hours and 59 minutes the following will save you money: (1) If, when you stop and pick up your ticket, there are no cars behind you, you can back up (safely) about 20 feet and then pull back up to the ticket machine it will dispense another ticket. This second ticket can be used, as long as you exit at the same plaza that you entered, as a U-turn priced ticket. U-turn costs at every plaza are different but if you entered the toll road at the Port St. Lucie plaza and returned 11 hours later, for example, the collector would charge you 40 cents even though you got your ticket from Lantana an hour earlier ... just don't use the Lantana ticket at exit plaza. And, if you commute back and forth to work every day, you can do this every day. The deputy director of tolls knows that the machines don't always dispense a ticket when a vehicle pulls up but if you leave without a ticket, she has directed that the collectors, when you get off at your exit plaza to charge you the maximum distance unless you can produce proof of where you entered earlier and didn't get a ticket. The collectors don't have a choice in what they are required to do. C ollectors have been directed, through a memo posted at the plazas to make these unreasonable charges. Got something to say?

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Many people are surprised when they get their new machine home and someone sends them email with a Wo rd or XL document attached and they cannot open it. The assumption people make is, if they get a machine with enough horsepower, RAM and hard drive space that it ought to do anything they need it to and, to a degree that is true. But the one thing that's missing is the software (or program) to do the job. Pr ograms that are installed after Windows are loaded enhance the system and allow the computer to run at its full potential. What programs we need installed depends on the files that we are trying to open and work with. A lot of the files that we work with on the Internet, such as .jpg, .html and .txt files all will open with the built in Windows applications (called "applets") but other files, such as .xls, .doc, .pdf and .ppt need programs that specifically handle those kinds of files. The three-letter extension is what identifies to the computer what kind of file it is, what icon to display for it and what program to use to open it. If the program that is r equired to open a file is not installed on the machine, then the file will be displayed with a generic Windows icon. When you try to open it, the computer will open a screen listing all the installed applications asking what program you want to use to open it. The computer takes a look at the file, doesn't r ecognize it so it lists all the programs installed and lets y ou pick what program to open it with because it doesn't have a clue. U nfortunately, when we see that program list, usually we don't have a clue what to open it with either, for the same reason the computer got stumped: there is no program installed for that type of file. So that brings us back to the beginning with the question of what programs does a typical computer need installed, on top of Windows, in order to be able to handle most of the file formats that everyone else in the world is using? Why is it that some machines can already handle certain files and some machines cannot? And, when y ou buy a computer, what should you look for as far as "bundled" software goes? Let's take the last question first and talk about "bundled" software. Some computer manufacturers have made deals with software vendors to "bundle" their software with every computer they sell. They, of course, get some sort of commission for including the software in with the price of the machine, but where things get tricky is every computer manufacturer has a different bundling agreement (or none at all) so every computer comes with different software loaded on top of Windows. What that means is one computer bought from one manufacturer will usually have different software installed than what may be installed in another computer of the same hardware specs (horsepower) from another manufacturer. Whew. S ay that one three times fast! OK, so you've decided to get a new computer. What bundled software should you look for (above and beyond W indows) that will allow you to do some of the more common tasks without getting the dreaded "unknown file type message?" W ell, the most common bundle that ought to be installed is some level of office suite. An office suite, (such as MS Office, Open Office or even Wor ks Office), is a package of software to handle Word processing, spreadsheets, databases, etc.; a must-have for productivity. F or things such as .pdf files (adobe portable document) the Acrobat reader can be installed. Adobe Reader and O pen Office are free and can sometimes be found bundled with other software or easily downloaded from the I nternet. But that is the subject of another column altogether.

Like a good neighbor,State F arm is there.Youre in good hands with Allstate.Saving people money for over 75 years (GEICO).Think easier;think Progressive.Nationwide is on your side.Youve heard all of these slogans thousands of times and seen the warm and fuzzy ads on television too many times. I can tell y ou from personal experience o wning and operating body shops for 46 years, insurance companies are not like good neighbors. I nsurance companies are the most profitable companies on Earth, but you cant always tell that by their tax r eturns or financial statements. Insurance companies are sheltered from paying taxes like other corporations must do because they can, and are required, to reserve large amounts of cash contingent to paying claims. Then they take those huge hoards of cash and wisely invest them in stocks, bonds, real estate, etc. so that they can grow those cash reserves. When y ou pay a monthly premium to your car insurance company, they dont pay any income tax on that. They invest it and grow that premium, compounding it over the years. Only after years of accumulating your premiums and growing that cash through investments do insurance companies begin to pay income taxes. This continuous, compounding tax deferr al is how Warren Buffet made the bulk of his vast fortune. How did insurance companies come to win this great tax advantage over all other corporations? They can afford to pay the best and most powerful lobbyist, in Washington D .C. and all 50 states. When a big insurance company says jump our elected officials say how high. For a politician to vote against a bill that B ig Insurance wants is political suicide. I have nothing against profit and I applaud those companies that make large profits. U nder our capitalist system and the free market place, those companies that can provide the best products and services and satisfy the customers the best should prosper. I have a problem with companies that make their large profits by distorting the tax code to favor their companies over others and that earn greater profits by exploiting their customers and associates. C ollision insurance companies pay body shops less than $50 per hour to repair your car after it has been damaged in a collision. Car manufacturers pay mechanical service departments over $100 to fix y our car when it has a mechanical problem, more than twice what insurance pays for body repair. Mechanical and body repair technicians are typically paid a commission based on the amount of labor they perform. This commission is a percentage of what the insurance company or manufacturer pays the service department or body shop. It follows that body r epair technicians earn far less than their mechanical technical counterparts. Now, heres the rub! Body r epair technicians are at least as well trained and skilled as mechanical repair techs. In fact, there is a greater shortage of good body repair techs than mechanical. One would think that the laws of supply and demand would command a higher wage for body r epair techs, or at least the same as mechanical techs. B ut they make much less. This is where you come into the picture. Lets say your car has been in a bad accident incurr ing thousands of dollars in damages. You want it repaired r ight, not just so it looks as good as it did before, but, more importantly, so its as safe as it was before. You want to be sure that the technician who repairs your car knows and cares what hes doing! Yo u ve heard the expression, Y ou get what you pay for. This means that if you hire a plumber to fix your clogged sink because he agreed to charge you half the hourly r ate of what all the other plumbers were charging, its likely that the problem wasnt corrected the it should have been. The reason that body repair technicians are paid so little is because the insurance companies mandate it. About 95percent of all auto repair work is paid for by insurance. I nsurance companies largely control which body shops r epair the vehicle of the insured. Each insurance company has a list of preferred body shops. If body shops are not on the preferred lists of any insurance companies, its very likely that they wont be able to remain in business. One of the requirements to be on that list is to charge the insurance company what they say you can charge. The insurance companies claim to arrive at these hourly rates by market studies, but the studies are bogus and rigged to come up with an hourly rate far below what it should be. The body shops and the insurance companies know that its impossible to repair cars safely and properly at the hourly rate they pay so they do what they have to do to get around that rate. The insurance companies force the body shops to use cheap after-market or used parts when new original manufacturers parts should be used. I nsurance companies also look the other way when body shops repair or straighten a metal part that should have been replaced, but cost more. Most of the damage thats done to a car in a collision is below the surface and invisible after the repair is completed. This means that all visible evidence of substandard and unsafe repairs is hidden. The customer comes in to pick up her car and it looks great. She may never how many short cuts were taken so that the car could be r epaired for what the insurance company was willing to pay. My advice to you if you have a car in need of body repair is be sure that you choose the body shop, not your insurance company. Check out this body shop carefully, just like yo u d check out a doctor or dentist for yourself or a family member.

Families receive donation from Bar Mitzvah candidateWhen 13-year-old Judah Lebofsky had to choose a M itzvah project for his Bar M itzvah he was a little apprehensive about how he could make a positive impact on his community. A Mitzvah project is a charitable service project that is conducted before a B ar Mitzvah, the Jewish coming-of-age ceremony. One evening, his mother, Jill Lebofsky, returned home from an event where a speaker from SafeSpace discussed the organizations mission to provide shelter and other assistance to victims of domestic violence. M y mom told me about S afeSpace and how kids and their mothers sometimes have to leave all of their belongings and run away in the night to safety at the SafeS pace shelter, said Judah. I thought a great idea for my M itzvah project would be to collect books for SafeSpace because most people enjoy r eading, and a good book can be a comfort and escape from the real world. S afeSpace is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that operates programs in Martin, S t. Lucie, and Indian River counties where families are provided with a safe environment through emergency shelter and outreach services. The organization offers victims of domestic violence safety, support, and education to empower them and provide the assistance necessary to set a positive direction and gain control over their own lives. W ith the project and beneficiaries in mind, Judah worked hard to spread the word about what he was doing. It was a team effort, as his family shared the information through a newsletter, word of mouth, and social media. Judah also hosted a book drive contest for his classmates at Hidden Oaks M iddle School where he was able to collect 300 books. He also had a collection box placed at his temple, Temple B eit HaYam, and was able to gather books from the congregation as well. In total Judah collected 725 books for the benefit of families receiving shelter and support through SafeSpace. When he realized he collected far more books than he anticipated, Judah decided to use some of the money he r eceived as Bar Mitzvah gifts from family and friends to purchase bookshelves to house the books at the shelter. I t s heartening to know that a young man would take an interest in our mission, and that, of all the possibilities for a Mitzvah project, Judah chose SafeSpace to be the beneficiary of his generosity, said Jill Borowicz, SafeSpace CEO. Not only are we grateful to Judah for the donation of the books and the bookcases, but he is helping to spread awareness about our organization and the work we do, and helping us to connect to y ounger generations.

Practice on call for deliveries MARTIN COUNTY For many expectant mothers, knowing they will be able to give birth at a hospital close to home is important to their peace of mind. What some women may not be aware of is the hospital nearest to them may not be the one where their doctor maintains privileges to deliver their baby. Gynecological and obstetrics practices, like other medical practices, have hospital affiliations, sometimes with only one hospital. F or women wanting to deliver their babies in Martin County at Martin Medical Center (formerly known as Martin Memorial Medical C enter), the only practice on call for obstetrics at that location is Physicians To W omen based in Stuart. P hysicians To Women has been delivering babies in Martin County for 30 y ears, said Dr. Michael H ochman, a partner in the P hysicians To Women gynecological and obstetrics practice. We want our curr ent and future patients to know they can continue to depend on us to deliver their babies at Martin Medical Center in Stuart. As far as we know, we are now the only medical practice that provides comprehensive womens health care services and also delivers babies in Martin County. Dur ing the past 30 years, the practices physicians have helped welcome thousands of Martin County babies into the world. In 2013, Physicians To Women delivered 565 babies at Martin Medical Center. The practices recent decision to maintain their affiliation with Martin Medical Center means their patients will still be able to give birth in the county that many of them call home. P hysicians To Womens services go beyond delivering babies as the practice offers an array of womens health care services. Their r ange of care includes comprehensive gynecological services for women from adolescence through the post-menopausal years, as w ell as in-office digital mammography exams for age-appropriate patients.

Continuing our practice of delivering babies in Martin C ounty is just one way we can do this, said Dr. H ochman.

While he didnt want a big fancy party, he was surr ounded by family and friends for a private, informal gathering that included cake and ice cream at the woodworking shop of the boat yard he founded in 1947. Mr. Whiticar first came to the Treasure Coast at the age of 6 with his parents and two brothers. Mr. Whiticar built his first boat when he was 14, displaying a talent which ultimately led him to establish the business that bears his name. Mr. Whiticars artistry in boat design and boat building was the foundation for the business that has operated in Stuart for more than 65 y ears. Weve built our reputation at Mr. Whiticar Boat Wor ks on what Curt Whiticar started many years ago. Our longevity and reputation in this community are tributes to his influence, said Jim Dr agseth, president of Whiticar. S ince retiring from the boat building business, Whiticar exhibits his artistry through oil paintings. An avid artist, he has created more than 1,450 paintings in his lifetime. An image of one of his paintings a leaping sailfish adorned his birthday cake. At birthday parties, gifts are normally presented to the person celebrating the milestone. However, because Mr. Whiticar didnt want his party to be boring, his guests had a chance to receive a special gift from him one of his paintings. Longtime friends Al and Dottie Shire won the raffle to r eceive the painting, which Mr. Whiticar described as r epresenting two fishermen at a beachside fishing shack r eminiscing about the days when the Indian River was full of pompano, trout and snook. The Shires, like many attendees, could also reminisce about times spent with Whiticar through the years. W e played golf together for years and when he was 96 y ears old, he was still beating us, said Mr. Shire. When asked what was his secret to longevity, Whiticar r esponded, hard work. Then, he also added, keeping busy. Mr. Whiticar still keeps busy, especially through his art, actively painting and making his own frames. While he no longer works at the boat yard, Mr. Whiticars connection with the employees of Whiticar Boat Works and its many divisions S hearwater Marine, Whiticar Y acht Sales, Whiticar Custom B oats and Whiticar Marine Nor th in Fort Pierce was evident when employees attending the celebration came up to him to wish him w ell.

C ounty Office of Consumer Affairs. Google the company and check out their online r atings. Your insurance companies will try hard to persuade you to use their preferred shop. They will tell y ou that they wont guarantee the repair unless you take it here. If you pick a good body shop, that shop will give you as good, or better, guarantee on their work than the insurance company. Be sure that the body shop you choose is on your side and not the insurance companys. Explain that you want new parts, not used, r ebuilt, or after-market. If the insurance company objects, stand shoulder to shoulder with your body shop and demand that the r epair be done properly and safely. If the insurance company still gives you a hard time, tell them that you will take them to court and they will usually back down. S ome body shops will do this for you, but you have to assign your rights to litigate on your behalf to that body shop. If this sounds like too much trouble, its not as bad as it sounds. Insurance companies know that they are doing the wrong thing and they dont like to go to court or attract attention. You will be surprised how often people like you who have the courage to stand up to Big I nsurance will find them backing down. MARTIN COUTNY The power of thank you is the central theme of House of H opes 15th annual Hearts for Hope Luncheon, which will be held March 24 at Sailfish Point Country Club. J ohn Kralik, author of A S imple Act of Gratitude, is the featured speaker. In his book, Kralik discusses how during a period of hardship he was inspired to begin writing thank you notes as a way to feel grateful for the good things in his life. He set a goal of writing 365 notes in the coming year, and immediately after sending his very first notes, significant and surprising benefits began to come his way. Thank-you note by thank-you note, his whole life turned around. Mr. Kraliks uplifting memoir provides an example that everyone can follow, and guests at Hearts for Hope will r eceive a special gift to help carry out this inspiration. The event is part of the agencys 30th anniversary celebration. Since 1984, H ouse of Hope has been fighting hunger and hardship in Martin County and today touches more than 5,000 people per month with services that include food, clothing, furniture, financial assistance, information & r eferral, and life-changing case management services to local people in need. H earts for Hope begins at 10:30 a.m. with unique shopping opportunities, including about a dozen distinctive vendors with custom jewelry and accessories as well as treasures from H ouse of Hope. A variety of prizes have been donated for a special drawing. The grand prize is a necklace valued at $5,500, donated and designed by T erry Rieger of Diamonds by T erry. The 18-inch necklace features a sculpted leopard ornament with diamonds, S terling silver, 14kt gold, pearls and smoky quartz beads. The Hearts for Hope committee is led by chairwoman J ennifer Feltman and includes Mary Armbrust, J ane Coton, Jane Buss, Judy D ean, Cindy Ehrhardt, Pat F errara, Larabee Johnson, Laura Keech, Carla King and B etty Springer.

M any counties, including Mar tin, St. Lucie and Indian River, have ordinances limiting or prohibiting lights on the beach during nesting season, including porch lights on homes on or near the beach. Lamps, flashlights and camera flashes can all disorient nesting turtles. Theres a lot for the public to be aware of when theyre out on the beach, Ms. Desjardin said. She advised visitors to keep dogs from digging on the beach and not disturb the trails sea turtles leave behind that mark where their nests are and allow organizations like EAI to collect their data. As nesting season begins, conservation organizations and the general public can work together to protect the leatherback, loggerhead and green sea turtles that use local beaches to lay their eggs.T urtlesF rom page A1 EarlF rom page A7

There will be bagpipers, step dancers, food vendors, and plenty of green beer at the event that Amber D ucote and Lindsay Nickerson decided to produce on a whim for the first time last y ear. They wanted to bring the S t. Patricks Day festivals they had enjoyed in places like Atlanta and Savannah to St uart, so they decided to organize their own. W e thought, hey, why not host a St. Patricks Day event and see what we can do with it, said Ms. Ducote who o wns KaleidoMinds Marketing.

Upr oot Hootenanny, an Ir ish band that was a huge hit at last years festival, will be performing again this y ear, Southern Eagle will be providing the beer and there will even be an Irish whisky bar.

W e re going to blow them away with some great entertainment this year, Ms. D ucote said. Like last year, a King and Q ueen of the Green will also be crowned, so be sure to arrive in your most festive S t. Pattys Day wear if you want a chance at winning $50 in cash, gift certificates and free drink tickets. And mad respect, Ms. D ucote said.

T en years ago, Ms. Arenas decided to open a caf that served popular dishes such as bacon and eggs, hamburgers, homemade soups and tasty side dishes like French fries and onion r ings. A decade and another location later, and things are going better than ever at American Caf. W e have a great, consistent crowd, Ms. Arenas said. Regulars come in to this location and to the one in Stuart. They always know what they want and we try to make them as happy as possible. The spacious dining room is comfortably decorated, with plenty of seating available for a quiet lunch for two or for breakfast for the whole family. My guest and I were treated to some of the items from Ms. Arenas newest additions to the menu: TexM ex. I v e added some really great dishes like fajitas pescado a la Mexicana, TexM ex pizza, Rio Grande salad and burritos, Ms. Arenas said. Along with the staples of my menu, these dishes add a flair that Im really happy about. Ms. Arenas prepared the Rio Grande salad and Ma ri a s Chili Bowl for my guest and me to try. The salad was full of perfectly seasoned shrimp and chicken. The fresh lettuce and tomatoes were topped with black olives, cheese and fresh guacamole. Ma ri a s Chili Bowl is healthy serving of chili served in a deep-fried tortilla and topped with melted cheese and onions. This meal is incredible and is more than enough to be shared. Ms. Arenas served us a lamb gyro and her popular P hilly cheesesteaks. The gyro is served with thinly sliced lamb, lettuce, tomato and a special sauce. The cheesesteak can be served with either beef or chicken and is topped with melted cheese, onions, mushrooms and peppers. Either of these sandwiches, which are served with French fries, would be an ideal choice for lunch. O ther popular menu items include sausage and gravy, served over fresh, warm biscuits, turkey and r oast beef sandwiches, BLTs and an array of breakfast items which are served all day. The portions are huge, prices are incredible, staff is friendly and attentive and the food, five-star. Its well worth a trip for either breakfast or lunch. You wont be disappointed.

Ga r dening offers exer cise lots of fr esh air mental ther ap y and the savings y ou r eap when y ou pick veggies fr om y our o wn gar den. This w eek, I am going to discuss some tips on getting y our gar den r eady for planting and offer some tips on what to plant. When planning a vegetable gar den, it is impor tant to choose a location that is we ll dr ained and near y our str uctur e The location needs to be in an ar ea wher e y ou have a r eadily av ailable sour ce of water The gar den should also be in an ar ea wher e the plants will r eceive at least five hours of sunlight. Ar eas with too much shade or sun all day long will cause pr oblems with the gr o wth of y our plants T oo little sun can lead to fungus diseases and lo w cr op yields T oo much sun can cause bur ning of the plants and a r educed cr op yield. R emember that y ou should not plant y our gar den in the same location y ear after y ear The soil will get depleted of vital nutr ients so it is best to r otate y our locations each y ear In F lor ida, our soil is ver y sandy so it is essential to add or ganic nutr ients to the soil. If you have a compost pile use the or ganic matter fr om it and spr ead it thr oughout the ar ea y ou plant to plant in. Y ou can also buy pr emixed top soils that contain or ganic mater ial to mix thr oughout y our gar den ar ea. It is always a good idea to test the pH v alue of y our soil.

W ould easier courses lure players? While at the PGA Merchandise Show, I find many different things to report on. This year there was an idea throw out to those in attendance. The man tossing the idea out there was Ma rk K ing, CEO of TaylorM ade Golf. King would like to make golf a little bit easier for the high handicapper and the beginner. The way he thinks would best work is to make the hole bigger. The regulation golf hole is 4-1/4-inches in diameter. U nder King's proposal, courses would cut holes 15-inches in diameter. This would speed up play, because fewer putts equals less time on the green... especially over those knee-knocking four-footers. It would also make the game much easier once you got onto the green as well as when chipping. We all want to shoot lower scores. But do you honestly think someone breaking 80 for the first time because every putt they hit fell into a wash bucket instead of missing a standard hole is going to feel that they have truly accomplished something? Golf is struggling. Ask any course owner, general manager or head professional and they will tell you rounds are down. Golf is a difficult game and making it easier may bring more people in the door to try the game. A bigger cup will only solve one problem. Sinking putts will become easier. But what about hitting a fairway from the tee or even the green if you get the first step right? If you ask the companies making clubs or the stores selling them and they will tell y ou that people are not buying new clubs, balls and so forth. The price of admission is pretty hefty. Fourteen clubs, a bag, shoes, and some silly plaid shorts come at a cost. Granted not everyone gets en expensive set of clubs right off the bat, but even the cheap stuff runs a few hundred dollars. If you go for used, there is a chance the technology isn't new either and won't help y ou when you most need it, which is when you are first learning the game. Ev en if you pick up some decent clubs or are fortunate enough to have some given to y ou, there is still the price to actually play. Just a bucket of balls will run you around $10. Once you decide to play, you are talking much more. How many courses are going to want to invest in new cups? Would you use them once a week? Would you have two holes on each green? What is the risk you run off more players than you bring in by trying this idea? M aybe we need a different set of rules to help those just beginning the game. Maybe we need equipment that allows them to play better with less skill. Perhaps courses should consider allowing GOLFJAMES STAM MER www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, February 28, 2014 Martin County B5 Gift Certificates A vailable!Abundant Health & Wellness Dr. William Lampard, MD1609 Port St. Lucie Blvd Port St. Lucie, Fl 34952772-398-0067088630The patient and any other person responsible for the payment has the right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed payment for any services, examination or treatment which is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for the free services, examination or treatment .The patient and any other person responsible for the payment has the right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed payment for any services, examination or treatment.

for players to play six holes instead of at least nine. Some new routing designs are doing just this making for cheaper fees and play that only takes about an hour. Tr uth is a vast majority play this game for the love and fun of it. They don't really follow the rules and they enjoy themselves without worrying just what rule 13-1 says. I don't want to take away from those who want the challenge and wish for the winner to be the one with the most skill. B ut we have to do something or this game will become even more elitist than it is. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. ContactJames Stammer at stammergolf@yahoo.com.
