MARTIN COUNTY One way to get a child to eat his or her vegetables is to let them be a part of the process from planting seeds to watering the buds to peeling and cooking the final product. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County Positive Sprouts program was created to educate y oung people on the importance of eating nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables and living healthy lifestyles by teaching them to build and maintain a community garden on site in Hobe Sound. The Positive Sprouts program is a national program that has been tweaked to benefit local children," said David Vaina, communications director for The Bo ys & Girls Clubs of Martin C ounty. "We teamed up with The Pine School because they have a culinary program. Club members took cooking classes at The Pine School in preparation of cooking their own vegetables." The program r ecently beat out nominations from other Boys & Girls Clubs across F lorida and r eceived the top H ealth & Life Skills program at last week's Florida Area Council meeting in Tampa. Fr om August, 2012 through Ma y, 2013, 50 Hobe Sound children ages eight to 12 years of age participated in the program. E ither two or three times a week (depending on the weather), clubV egetable garden program receives top honors Health officials continue to warn against dengue fever TREASURE COAST The Florida Department of H ealth in Martin County confirmed four additional cases of dengue fever, bringing the total to 15 locally acquired cases in the Rio and Jensen Beach area. Of the cases, nine are Ma r tin County residents and six are St. Lucie residents. D engue Fever (pronounced den' gee) is a disease transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito, not person to person. In the W estern Hemisphere, the Aedes aegypti (pronounced edis egyp-tie) mosquito is the main transmitter of dengue viruses. In some cases, the Aedes albopictus mosquito has also transmitted the disease. Both of these mosquitoes are found in large numbers in Martin and St. Lucie Counties. It is estimated that there are ov er 100 million cases of dengue worldwide each y ear. M osquito Control in Ma r tin County is continuing to inspect and treat properties in the affected areas. The Florida Department of Health continues to advise the public to re main diligent in their personal mosquito protection efforts.

"D r ain and Cover". DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren't being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pet's water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don't accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COV ER skin with clothing or repellent Clothing Wear shoes, socks, and long pants and long-sleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. REPELLENT Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. R epellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children y ounger than 2 months old. CO VER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios. T ips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some r epellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET (N,N-diethyl-mtoluamide) are generally r ecommended. Other US Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, r ead label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the CDC, mosquito re pellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three y ears. DEET is not recommended on children y ounger than two months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply r epellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the child's skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturer's directions. F or more information on what repellent is right for yo u, consider using the EPA search tool to help you choose skin-applied repellent products: http://cfpub.epa.gov/opp r ef/insect/#searchform. v ative solutions.

He has also stepped down as the dean of students. "In an attempt to motivate our team to play with more mental and physical toughness, 1 used inappropriate language," said Mr. Fey in a press release. "The message I was trying to convey was lost in my poor choice of words. My passion got the best of me. I know that by virtue of our leadership capacity, coaches are traditionally held to a high moral standard within the community and I accept re sponsibility for my behavior." Mr. Fey will be retained by the school district to work in another capacity within Martin County. Mr. Fey became head coach in 2010 after a stint as defensive coordinator.

The challenge, which is part of CFO A twater's Your Money Matters initiative, encourages students to learn about people, places and events in F lorida history and use the information they learn to contemplate financial decisions. "I t' s very important that we teach our future financial leaders about F lorida's diverse economic history and how it continues to influence our lives," said CFO Atwater. "Florida's F inancial History Challenge is a great program because it offers students a unique and fun opportunity to learn about our financial history while helping prepare them to make smart financial decisions in the future." F lorida's Financial History Challenge offers a coloring contest for kindergarten through second grade students and the pictures they color will be displayed in the Florida Capitol in D ecember.

staff instructed children on how to plan, build, plant, maintain, and sustain the garden which included plenty of fruits, vegetables and herbs. "W e want the children to know that they can start small with planting herbs," Mr. Vaina said. "We are slowly getting kids to love vegetables. The idea is for them to incorporate them into their daily meals. Growing vegetables, getting their hands dirty, watering, weeding, picking them when they're ripe, and then helping in the process of eating them is enjoyable and rewarding for the kids. They are also learning basic botany and getting a lesson about the environment." Children also participated in "Creepy Crawly" sessions where they learned about the beneficial and harmful bugs and insects in the garden. In addition to getting their hands dirty every w eek, the children kept journals that visually charted the growth of the different plants in the garden. As eating healthy was a major component of the program, participants also documented in their journals what they ate at school and at home. To r einforce eating healthy, the Positive Sp r outs coordinator, S imone Scott, also held regular cooking classes in the H obe Sound Club kitchen. "W e are getting ready to plant our fall vegetables," Ms. Scott said. "If the w eather cooperates, we should be planting outside next week. If we run into bad weather, we'll start planting some things in flower pots so we can begin the process." The Boys and Girls Club is located at11500 S.E. La r es Ave.,Hobe Sound.

"W e' re excited to bring Canstruction to the Treasure Coast and grateful for the outstanding support from the professionals in our community," said Judith Cruz, Treasure Coast F ood Bank CEO. "This also is an excellent way for more people to learn about hunger on the Treasure C oast while the sculptures are on display. People will be astounded by the creativity that goes into these sculptures." T eams must register by Friday, S ept. 20 and submit sculpture plans by Fr iday, Sept. 27.

This "Learn to Surf" event brings together Wounded W arriors and volunteers from local communities to share in a morning of surfing, camaraderie, and healing. "O ur focus is to let these W ounded Warriors know how much we care about them, and to share our favorite sport with them," says Bruce Strunk, owner of S punky's Surf Shop. "J ust like much of the military, our community of surfers is a tight-knit group and many of our volunteers we re either veterans or have close ties to the military. We want to let these men and women know we appreciate their service, and to aid in their recovery. It was a great event last year, and we're looking forward to helping these Warriors successfully complete the day's mission of learning to stand up on a surfboard!" The event will begin with the Wounded Warriors being escorted into the park to the applause and support of ov er 65 volunteers. After introductions and the opening ceremonies, including our National Anthem, W ounded Warriors, volunteers and sponsors will assemble for a group photo. Each Wounded Warrior will then proceed to the water with a "core team" of volunteers who will provide instruction and safety patrol, with fellow volunteers on shore providing encouragement and support. F ollowing surf lessons, the W ounded Warriors, volunteers and park employees will join together for a luncheon provided by "Friends of Florida State Park s .". Last year's initial event was a beautiful success, with our Wounded Warriors leaving with a smile, a goody bag filled with surf-related items, and a framed group photo signed by the volunteers. The mission of Wounded W arrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors. WWP's purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

The following is a direct quote from an anonymous car dealer's email I r eceived this morning in r esponse to one of my rec ent columns in this newspaper: "I don't think y ou would make any of these comments if you sold Fords in a non-metro market. How do you expect dealers to change when consumers think they should pay less than dealer cost for a car and then walk into any other form of retail store and pay what they are asking?? Y our ideas are noble but there are other dealers who have tried 'your' methods who are no longer in business." This dealer is saying that his customers are so r uthless and cunning that they won't buy a car unless they can buy it below his cost and his only solution is to trick them into thinking that they are buying it below his cost, like tacking on a dealer fee" to the price they quoted the customer. He al so goes on to say that my "ideas are noble" but I can't possibly be successful and I will go broke trying. I truly appreciate his concern and I want to assure him, if he is reading this article, that my business is doing very nicely. This attitude is actually a prevailing part of the culture in many car dealerships. Many dealers, dealer managers, and sales people don't trust their customers (how ironic!). They don't even like their customers. A very common expression among car dealers and their sales staff is "Buyers are liars." This means that a prospective customer will not tell you the truth about the condition of his trade-in, he will lie to you about the price he got from your competitor, and he is likely to remove those new tires that were on his trade-in when the dealer appraised it when he comes in to pick up his new car. There are also a lot of dealerships where used car buyers and people with bad credit are held in especially low esteem. They have nicknames for people with bad credit like "slugs" and "roaches." A pparently dehumanizing these unfortunate members of our society with derogatory labels makes it easier to treat them so shabbily. People with bad credit are targeted with direct mail and newspaper ads making absurd promises that convince prospective customers that they can finance a car no matter how bad their credit. In some dealerships applicants are coached on how to falsify credit application and pay r ecords. In some cases the applicant may not even know he is signing a false credit application which is federal offence. In most cases, the credit is refused and the applicants are not even given the courtesy of Responding to the buyers are liars' idea TREASURE COAST The Martin Health Foundation LifeSavers have been raising funds to benefit the health and wellbeing of Treasure Coast families since 2002. On July 20, the group of volunteers from Martin and St. Lucie counties hit a major milestone, topping $1 million in funds raised. They hit the mark with a sold-out Goombay Bash, the LifeSavers' signature event, which drew 850 people to the Jensen Beach C auseway Park and raised a total of $180,000. The LifeSavers exemplify the partnership Martin H ealth System has with the community," said Kelly Ro w ell, director of development for sustainable giving at Martin Health F oundation. "Many of them have started their families here, have used Ma r tin Health's services, and want to make sure the same level of care is available for others. Their passion and dedication to this cause have made it successful." No w in its 12th year, the Goombay Bash event featured a Polynesian theme with live music, entertainment, raffles, food and libations. The LifeSavers have become known for creating an elaborate, progressive event atmosphere this year's Goombay featured live-streaming photos through social media, allowing guests to share the fun with people at the event and even those who we re not in attendance. The annual event supports mothers and babies born at Martin Medical C enter, as well as pediatric care and rehabilitation. Ev ent proceeds are used to purchase technology, equipment, renovations and fund special programs like the mother-baby home visit program. In addition to programs currently subsidized by the LifeSavers, they have expanded their reach into S t. Lucie County and are committed to help fund services provided at Tradition Medical Center, a new hospital in west Port St. L ucie opening in December. This new 90-bed facility will include 14 labor, delivery and recovery r ooms, as well as six neonatal intensive care unit rooms. Top sponsors of this y ear's event included: Balfour Beatty Construction, HKS, Harper Limbach and T eam Tradition, MetCare & H umana, Michael Earley, Ev entmakers International, Sailfish Splash Waterpark, AquaServices, Park P harmacy and D'Agonstino Foundation, All Access A VL and Kathleen Wyatt D esigns. Ma r tin Health System is a nonprofit, communitybased health care organization that has served the r egion for more than 70 y ears. It offers a continuum of care including preventive, primary and acute hospital care, as well as cancer and cardiac care, w ellness and rehabilitation services. Its approximately 3,000 associates, 375 affiliated physicians and more than 850 volunteers provide care at 12 different locations serving Martin and St. Lucie counties.

Safety should remain in focus during football season TREASURE COAST B ack to school, fall football, and gridiron memories are best when safety is the number one factor in winning. D aniel A. Rukeyser, D.C., founder of Vital Wellness C enter, reminds parents, coaches, and players that proper precautions on and off the field add up to a winning season for the community. "F ootball safety, for players of all ages, begins at home with the player's parents," said Dr. Rukeyser. "I t' s generally recognized that children under six should not play competitive football and children under ten should not play tackle football. However, for every play, no matter the sport they play, a pre-participation physical evaluation should be standard procedure for athletes of all ages." Ev ery athlete should r eceive a pre-participation physical evaluation to detect conditions which could make playing football or other sports life-threatening or disabling and detect medical or musculoskeletal conditions that could predispose an athlete to injury or illness during practice or competition. The evaluation should include both a medical history and physical exam. The PPE should be performed by a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner with the training and medical skills to recognize heart disease and orthopedic conditions of concern for football. In addition to cardiovascular screening, the PPE for football should include an orthopedic exam focusing on neck strength, joint r ange of motion, flexibility, anatomical misalignments and muscle-tendon imbalances and documentation/re-examination of past neurological, bone and joint injuries. Conditions should be documented which have potential implications for an athlete's safety during practice or games (e.g., visual impairment, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, severe allergies, sickle cell disease, history of heat illness, history of concussion, use of medications, use of steroids, symptoms of eating disorders, etc.). "P arents of young athletes should take an active role in making sure their children are prepared to play safe football. They should be w ell-informed about specific injury prevention measures, including safer blocking and tackling techniques that do not use the head. They should be free to make unannounced visits to practices and should ask questions if they see something that seems unsafe. In addition, parents should be sure any injury is reported to the athletic program staff, should reinforce compliance with treatments or r ehabilitation after injury," Dr Rukeyser said. Dr Rukeyser also says it's important that precautions be in place should an injury happen on the field of play during football or other athletic events. A telephone should be immediately available at all game and practice sites, with prominent posting of numbers of ambulance, paramedics, first aid personnel and police. Plainly-marked emergency first aid equipment should be accessible on the field. This equipment should be inspected periodically to assure its completeness, cleanliness and usability. An emergency action plan should be developed and rehearsed. Key personnel who are to carry out the plan should be identified. The plan should include r esponses to severe injuries, hypothermia, heat illness and even allergic reactions to plants and stinging insects. A National Athletic Tr ainers Association-certified athletic trainer or a physician should be available at every game and practice. If this is not possible, a physician should be available by phone or pager. At a minimum, a specific agreement should be negotiated with a local emergency department and/or emergency medical service provider to deal with injured athletes. Up-to-date medical information for each athlete should be immediately accessible at the site of every game and practice. This information should include emergency contacts, preferred physician, preferred hospital and a signed consent form giving permission to provide www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 13, 2013 Martin County A5 ANTIQUE MALLtel.772-460-83733128 N.

Logging on to the internet for the first time can be very confusing. There is a whole new vocabulary to learn and a new set of guidelines to follow. The guidelines I'm speaking of are known as netiquette" and are an important part of participating in the online community. Let's go over some basic email etiquette. Email messages are quick to bang out and send instantly with the click of a button, this makes them especially susceptible to bad grammar, lousy spelling and poor content. Remember, humor and sarcasm can easily get lost in a medium like email and can result in some pretty r ude messages being sent. T ake your time with your message and if you are trying to be funny or sarcastic, use a "smiley" or "emoticon." These are little faces created with the characters on the keyboard, and when looked at with your head tilted to the left, look like little facial expressions. F or example, :) is your basic smiley, :( is the same guy only in a bad mood, this emoticon is a wink ;) and this :'( emoticon is crying. Emoticons can be used to put the emotion back into a message that's become sterile and mechanical. Using an emoticon can be essential to let your email recipient know when you are "just kidding." If y ou have a word processor or email client with a spell checker, use it when you compose your message. Also, watch out for the "caps lock" button on your keyboard. T yping in all capital letters is considered shouting and should be avoided. I've heard the argument that typing in all caps makes it easier to read but if you have trouble seeing when y ou are typing your message, there are other ways to increase the font size. Learn how to increase your font size and don't rely on caps lock. Email has flaws. Avoid foul language and "private" or "confidential" messages. Ne ver send anything you'd be embarrassed for your M om to see (a deleted message can have copies archived all over the place). If y ou send an email message that can get you in trouble, M urphy's Law will kick in and you will (long after you thought the message in question was "deleted.") These guidelines apply not only to email but even more so to message boards and "blogs." Message boards are an area where netiquette is of the utmost importance, they are online bulletin boards that are read every day by countless people all over the world and if you post a bad message to one of these boards, you may find yourself the center of a "flame war" and your email box flooded with hundreds of nasty r esponses. Use common sense when posting messages to message boards or blogs. If you have a gut feeling that maybe you shouldn't post a message, don't. Once you post a message you usually can't take it back and you may offend thousands. O ther pitfalls to avoid in the message boards are the "trolls." These insidious little messages are designed to generate outrage and flames. Again, you'll recognize them when you see them, don't r espond. That will only encourage them! Remember these words of wisdom don't feed the trolls!" And last, don't fall for any of the countless "get rich schemes" on the 'net. They're there and you'll know them when you see them. Trust me, there is no money waiting in Nigeria, you didn't win some foreign lottery and yo u' ll do nothing but annoy people if you forward that chain letter. If it sounds too good to be true then it's probably a scam. T ake the time to find out the rules of the road before y ou try to communicate with the masses. Usually checking the Frequently Asked Q uestions before posting messages can help prevent y our email box from overflowing with flames. These suggestions also apply to instant messenger programs and texting. It is easy to forget about manners and grammar when sending text messages and sure, it may be "just an instant message" but remember there is someone on the other end. Be nice!

Healthy life pays offAs a person who is almost 70 and jumps rope and jogs I'd like to respond to the person who asked: "Do you really think if you don't eat candy or smoke that you'll be skipping rope when you're 70?" Yes. The reason that the U.S. and state governments have (or proposed) putting taxes on tobacco products that cause cancer, and unhealthy food that causes diabetes, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease is the cost to our nation. The cost of ruining your body with tobacco and unhealthy food makes everyone's healthcare go up.Selling in FloridaR eal Estate is different in Florida? I have owned six homes in four states and never had a problem. There were buyer agents and seller agents. In attempting to sell a condo in the area has been a unique experience to say the least. E pisode 1: I was asked right away upon the person entering my "home" "Where do you think you live?" "You live in Florida. No one has Cherry furniture here!" "You need to rethink this place if you are considering selling!" "Put in white wicker!!" E pisode 2: When an agent was picking up my possessions and telling me they would have to be removed as she put them in a pile I understand re-staging but to insult y our collection of angels or doilies under stem glassware etc. and stated that she would only sign a contract after I had gotten rid of my personal items and then she could take pictures. E pisode 3: I was told not to touch a thing as my "home" was in "perfect condition." Pictures were taken by a cell phone rather by professional photographer who was supposed to come with agent. Many promises never took place...When I corrected descriptions of my condo I was told because, "One could see my kitchen it was not a dining room but an eat in kitchen"because I had a television in my living room it was a family room! I never had a wall oven. I had an over the range microwave. I did not have a glassed in porch. At what point does the customer have control over her listing when hiring an agent from the realtor agency? M uch stress allows me to consider the alternate method here in Florida in selling a condo like word of mouth at pool side or playing cards in the afternoons.Drug testing for welfareI read recently where the governor of North Carolina made a very intelligent decision and vetoed drug testing for people on public assistance, calling it "government ov erreach." He noted that this effort in other states has only resulted in increased taxpayer cost and has done little to reduce drug addiction. Has anyone taken a detailed look at this onerous program our governor installed here in Florida? How many people have been denied benefits as a result and what percentage are they of the total population requesting benefits? How much does the program cost taxpayers? Has the legislation proven worthwhile, or is this simply another layer of intrusive government dumped upon the taxpayers' backs? I would truly like to see a detailed reportAbout gas regulationsI am sorry to hear you are so inconvenienced, by having to decide something for yourself. Of course, the government should decide what is better for you should you spend $3.50 or $4 a gallon for your gas. They will send someone over to pick out your clothes in the morning too. Y our forefathers died to allow you the right to make choices that you feel are in your best interest. The Soviet Union was where you could have lived, so you didn't have to make those choices. Of course, you would not have had a car, so the question would have been moot. Many foolish people want others to decide everything for them, and end up with nothing, to decide over. That is the terrible burden of Freedom you actually have to do something. By the way, you could move to Amsterdam where gas prices are "regulated" at $6.50 per gallon and you wouldn't have to struggle with choosing a price.Natural right?S ome illegal immigrants have come up with a new claim, a "natural right" to be here. They assert simply setting foot on our soil, they deserve all the rights and privileges of citizenship. Somehow, this implies the right to break our laws. Ronald Reagan stated, "A country without secure borders ceases to be a nation." Under President Obama, we are moving in that dangerous direction. Are republicans to blame?F or almost five years President Obama has been blaming George Bush for all our troubles. Predictably, everything is the fault of Republicans, he says, including overspending, debt, gridlock, the Gulf Oil spill, the Japanese tsunami, Al-Qaeda, Benghazi, Detroit and the outsourcing of American jobs. Whatever happened to the concept that the buck stops here?About facismI find the arbitrary listing of certain features emblematic of Fascism or any other ism, generally not a persuasive argument when trying to castigate an opposing view point. One could take any or all of the fourteen points ascribed and rebut them. For the sake of brevity let, the last item be emblematic, "Fraudulent Elections: Elections are often manipulated by smear campaigns ." In the last election, the widely viewed use of an old woman going ov er the cliff in a wheelchair the word "smear" springs to mind quite facilely. Pe r haps the more important question might be, do some fear their liberties endangered? Does your philosophy promote John Locke's tenets: The Creator gave mankind two inalienable rights, self-ownership and ownership of one's labor, perforce implying that man can join his labor to an artifact and it becomes his produce. By extension that produce can be freely exchanged with another, in an act called capitalism yet another ism. Or, does your philosophy ascribe to the concept that the r ights of man are issued by the State leading to different ism. So far the ism that attaches to free trade among men has produced a higher standard of living for more people than any other ism yet discovered. In the U.S. of A. by the 1850's it resulted in a standard of living twice that of any other country. Today with that particular ism in decline, we have one-hundred million on food assistance. It seems that ism capitalism should be what we all strive for, and anyone seeking to diminish that freedom should be deterred! About ObamacareN ancy Pelosi famously said Congress should vote for Obamacare without reading it to find out what is in it. We are learning what is in it, and it isn't pretty. Sarah Palin said it includes rationing. Liberals called her foolish, ignor ant and wrong. However, we are now finding out about something called the Independent Payment Advisory B oard which is mandated to make decisions concerning accessibility. Accessibility is Washington code for ra tioning. No one can say we were not warned. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com.

When you retire, it would be convenient if all your expenses were to "retire" as w ell. But they won't. In fact, y ou'll likely need between 80 percent and 100 percent of your pre-retirement income to maintain your standard of living in retirement. And you may even need more, depending on what you plan to do during y our retirement years. So, w ell before you retire, ask y ourself a couple of key questions: Where will the money come from? And when can I get at it? Let's take a look at some of your likely retirement income "pools," along with the rules governing withdrawals from these sources. 401(k) plan If you have a 401(k) plan at work, take full advantage of it. Your earnings have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis and you typically contribute pre-tax dollars, so the more you put in, the lower your adjusted annual taxable income. Generally, y ou have to be at least 591/2 to withdraw money from your 401(k) without incurring a penalty of 10 percent of the taxable amount of your withdrawal. How ever, you can avoid this penalty under the following circumstances: Y ou leave your employer when you are at least 55 or y ou become disabled. Y ou take a series of equal periodic payments, made at least annually, for your life or life expectancy. Y ou "roll over" your 401(k) withdrawals into an IRA. Of course, you may not want, or need, to tap into your 401(k) at either age 55 or 591/2. If that's the case, you can leave your account alone and, hopefully, watch it continue to have the potential to grow. But you will have to start taking withdrawals when you r each 70-1/2, if you haven't already done so. IRA As is the case with y our 401(k), you will, in most cases, have to pay a 10 percent tax penalty if you take distributions from your IRA before age 59-1/2. And y ou must begin taking r equired minimum distributions from a Traditional IRA once you reach 70-1/2. If y ou have a Roth IRA, you face no mandatory distribution rules, so you never have to touch the money, which means it can potentially grow tax-free for years. S ocial Security You can start taking Social Security when you reach 62, but your monthly payments will only be about 70 percent to 75 percent the exact amount depends on your age of y our payments if you waited until your reached "full" r etirement age, which is probably 66 or 67. (Social S ecurity determines your full retirement age by your y ear of birth.) To most effectively incorporate your 401(k) and IRA withdrawals, and your S ocial Security payments, into your retirement income, you'll need to consult with your financial advisor. Also, to make sure y ou're not adversely affecting your tax situation when you start taking these withdrawals and payments, talk to your tax advisor. But don't wait until you're almost retired to start planning for it. Your decisions on when to start taking withdrawals from y our various retirement accounts are usually irrevocable so you'll want to get them right the first time.

I don't claim to be a psychologist (and I don't even play one on TV), but I have read articles explaining how humans will stereotype other people in a fashion that falsely justifies their negative behavior toward those same people. We see this with racism and even in wars. If you make yo urself believe that car buyers are out to take advantage of you, "buyers are liars," you can't feel guilty about tricking them into paying a dealer fee. If y ou trick a "roach" or a slug" into coming in to buy a car on credit when they probably can't, why should you feel guilty? After all, roaches and slugs don't have feelings. What these kinds of dealerships don't understand is that you must trust a person first before y ou can expect her to trust you. You have to treat a person with r espect before you can expect that person to r espect you. Somebody has got to go first. My experience over the past 40-plus years as a car dealer is that 99.9 percent of my customers are good people who I can believe and trust. Those are pretty good odds and I just assume that every customer I am dealing with is part of that 99.9 percent. Once in a great while I get burned, but the loss from that one in a thousand that takes advantage is far outwe ighted by the other 999 who respond positively to my trusting them and treating them with r espect.

Since the area really does not have a slow season, most courses charge nearly as much to play in the summer as they do should you drop by during the winter. S ince I'm always on the lookout for a good deal and wanting a sampling of good golf, I looked a little beyond my usual stops. My quest took me to Providence Golf Club in Davenport, a few miles south of Kissimmee just off U.S. Highway 17-92. Anyone playing a round at one of the resort courses should consider saving a few dollars and playing here instead or adding it to their menu. Pr o vidence Golf Club sits at the very east end of one of the area's newer developments, and right up against protected wetlands. The front nine has a smattering of homes, while the back nine is beautifully void of them. The par-72 layout has four sets of tees, with the longest stretching the course to 6,929 yards. The shortest set comes in at just ov er 5,000. The course was designed by M ike Dasher. He refers to the course as a hybrid, combining prairie, old F lorida and parkland styles to give the golfer an everchanging pallet that makes for memorable holes and changing strategies. S ome holes feature large, mature oaks framing the greens and fairways. Others use native wind-blown grasses, giving the holes an expansive, big sky feel. Amazingly, there is a hole here that truly irritated me. Arriving at the short driv able par-4 fifth hole, I was excited at the prospect of driving the green. In my opinion, a hole this short should offer the golfer several options from the tee. Do you lay up, or challenge the hole and go for the green? W ell, since there is a large lake right in front of the green, there is only one option, you lay up. I hate being forced to hit a hybrid or mid-iron from the tee on a par-4. After a six-iron from the tee and a nine-iron into the green I walked off with a mundane par that could have been a much more exciting eagle or doublebogey. The uphill, par-3 eighth hole has the toughest green on the property. From the tee you must hit a mid to short iron over a creek and to the right spot on the green if you expect to keep the ball there. Nearly every shot missing the green will simply funnel toward the creek well below the green. The front-nine closes with the longest hole on the course. Measuring 559 yards from the back, you need two solid shots just to set up a short pitch onto a huge green. When you reach the back nine, you forget that you're amidst a housing development as the holes traverse along as an old Florida layout with expansive lakes and heavily wooded w etlands. F or the most part, the fairways and greens are very generous at Providence. You need not fear hitting your driver a little off line, but bring your best putter with y ou, because you could find y ourself on the green, a long way from the hole, facing a putt that breaks in more than one direction. The dogleg left par-4 14th plays over 400 yards from all four sets of tees. To cut some distance off your approach, your drive must go over a strand of trees not far from the tees. The approach is to a wellguarded, shallow green. The tightest driving hole on the course is at the par-5 15th. After a solid drive, one must make that tough decision to lay up or go for it. The green sits atop a hill, and is well guarded by water to the left and bunkers, trees and a hill to the right. The 16th hole could be the best on the property. Fr om an elevated tee, this par-4 begs players to cut the corner over a wetland area. A great tee shot could mean a difference of 50 yards on y our approach shot. The two closing holes, a par-3 and a par-4, are solid as well. The 17th is a medium-length par-3 that would serve as an example of what the great explorer P once de Leon would have built had he built a course when he came to Florida in the early 1500s. The 18th isn't long by any means, but with water r unning the entire length down the right side, an accurate tee shot and an exacting approach are r equired. A back-right pin position could cause you to wish you'd put more antiperspirant on earlier in the day.

JEN5OFF INDIANTOWN From tales of sailing across the A tlantic and landing at Ellis I sland to stories of descending on American soil with dreams of a new life, most people living in the United S tates can trace their ancestors to a story of a new beginning. B ecause so many individuals can trace their heritage to other parts of the world, the story of how modernday Americans came to U.S. soil is fascinating. The Smithsonian Museum delves into that aspect of history with their traveling exhibit, The Journey Stories. The exhibit takes a look at historical accounts of how families came to America, traces developments in modes of travel and transportation, and explores how these factors have played a significant role in shaping Americans' identity, particularly sense of freedom. "W e have been preparing for this exhibit for some time," said Sandy Henry, project director. "I ndiantown is one of the most diverse towns in the county, so it's fitting that the exhibit makes a stop here." The Journey Stories exhibit examines the intersection between various means of travel and Americans' desire to feel free to move. The stories are diverse and focus on immigration, migration, innovation and freedom. I mmigrants share their accounts of coming toTHROUGH SEPT. 13 'Wheels of Change' exhibition tour: 3:30 p.m. weekdays, Sept. 3-13, Sept. 3-13, at the Elliott Museum, 825 N.E. Ocean Blvd., Stuart.

T he topics in this theme relate to how transportation encouraged Americans' mobility and sense of freedom. There is a 16-person maximum on each onehour tour, so free tickets (limited to two per person) and registration are required. Donations to the Elliott Museum are welcomed. Call (772) 28857 02, ext. 5; tickets must be picked up at the Blake Library.

Will meet on the One of the greatest joys of living and gardening in F lorida is the ability to grow fresh veggies throughout the year. Even though our summer months create a few challenges, it is still possible to grow these fresh delights year-round. When you visit your favorite nursery or retail garden center, you will often see a dizzying va r iety of seeds offered for sale. The plain truth is that some of these va r ieties will not always grow well in our tropical climate. Here are some of the best varieties to try in y our home garden. One of the most popular vegetables in this country is the potato. These curious vegetables are used in many dishes and are served a variety of ways. You can use them mashed, baked, fried and are used in making potato chips. On average, each person consumes 125 pounds of potatoes each y ear! No one can truly appreciate the taste of a great tasting potato until y ou have picked one from y our own garden. In order to grow a healthy potato crop, there are some initial soil conditions that must be met prior to planting. In F lorida, most of the work is already done for you as they like a high acidic w ell-drained soil. This is the case for many Florida gardens. You do not want to plant potatoes in an area where standing water might be a problem. If you think this might be a problem, add soil to raise the bed at least 10 12 inches to ensure the crop stays above the water line. P otatoes are heavy feeders and require lots of nutrition during their life cycle. A 10-0-10-fertilizer blend is ideal for these plants. M ost grocery stores and r etail nurseries carry seeds for potatoes. The problem with some of these seeds is that they might not be disease free. It is better, if possible, to buy your seeds from a certified seed supply house. The seeds or tubers you buy from these growers will do much better in the home garden. A commercial garden supply center will usually carry these certified seeds and tubers. Use your local y ellow pages to shop around for these seeds and tubers. Tubers are small plants that have already been started and are in small pots ready to plant. P lant your potatoes about 6-8 inches apart with the rows about 36 inches apart. You will need some space to grow these plants. Seed pieces MARTIN COUNTY Ma ry 's S helter recently donated eight cribs to Martin County Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care, a medical day care center for special needs children with complex and fragile medical, developmental and technology dependent needs. Thank you to Mary's S helter for supporting Martin County PPEC and the families we serve," said Ev elyn Duah, Martin County PPEC Administrator. The cribs are a great new addition to our nursery." Ma r tin County PPEC collects donations for the families of medically-fragile and complex children who often struggle financially to purchase basic items like diapers and clothing due to expensive medical bills. Donations of food, clothing, diapers and more are greatly appreciated. The Martin County PPEC staff sees the struggles of parents of special needs children daily, but the most pressing concern is finances," said Ms. Duah. "Frequent trips to the doctor's office and specialists along with medications on top of essentials like diapers can be devastating to a family's budget. These donations help to meet basic needs when the families just can't afford them."

J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years e xperience in gardening and landscape. S end e-mails to hometowngarden@gmail.com or visit his website www.hometowngarden.com Let's start by talking about the river. You have to fish early. If y ou wait too late in the day, the fish will hide from the sun. High temperatures mean warm water. F ish are smarter than they're given credit for. They know to get out of the sun. They will be in the skinny water looking for breakfast and you need to be there to serve it. Start with top water lure then go to a sub-surface lure as the sun rises. Fr om the Nettles Island north, pay attention to the treed shore line and the bait. They will tell you where the fish are moving to. Lots of trout, ladyfish and snook and yes, you can go south to the Stuart causeway. There's lots of snook and maybe one will be in the slot. T arpon are hanging around the deeper water, bridges and intersecting channels. You need to see what has their eye and match the profile. The prime hour is early but it depends on the bait. We have had 40pound class fish feeding at the change of the tide all week. B ig jacks are taking up the slack, feeding on anything that moves from small to big, so hang on. A few top-of-the-slot r eds have been reported on live shrimp from county line north. Lots of trees and long docks provide the shade for their comfort zone on the west side. There are lots of big ladyfish to keep anglers busy on both sides. There are lots of fish at the bridges, such as snook, tarpon, jacks, mangroves, blues and mac's to name a few. They're feeding on mullet of all sizes and glass minnows. You will see the cloud coming and plenty of small pins are keeping all of them fat and happy. Yes, shrimp will catch them. Su rf is the same as last w eek with Tarpon (80lbs plus), snook (way over slot), and jack's that will pull a boat all following the bait schools. Time is a hard call because the bait is in and out all day, best bet is to watch for a high tide, two hours before should find plenty of fish. If y ou want to take dinner home, there are lots of big croaker and plenty of whiting out there. Off shore plenty of small Dolphin from forty feet out on the weed lines, please let them grow. Go catch a Dolphin that you need a gaff to put in the boat, three hundred feet and deeper, yes on the w eed lines and they are hungry. Few black fins and plenty of bonita at the hill but hard to go past fish to catch fish. M angroves, muttons and grouper are on the bottom. There are plenty of local reefs that get no attention, so look at your charts. From 40feet you could have the numbers and be the only one there. R eds have to be thrown back but there are so many out there you will not be disappointed. You could drift over or anchor, and put a sardine down. When it hits the bottom, give the r eel two cranks and you will be ready. Bring lots of ice because you are going to need it. Live baits are not an issue, there are lots of sardines, so, thread fins and you know how I feel about mullet. There's no excuse, go catch a fish.

MARTIN COUNTY One way to get a child to eat his or her vegetables is to let them be a part of the process from planting seeds to watering the buds to peeling and cooking the final product. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County Positive Sprouts program was created to educate y oung people on the importance of eating nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables and living healthy lifestyles by teaching them to build and maintain a community garden on site in Hobe Sound. The Positive Sprouts program is a national program that has been tweaked to benefit local children, said David Vaina, communications director for The Bo ys & Girls Clubs of Martin C ounty. We teamed up with The Pine School because they have a culinary program. Club members took cooking classes at The Pine School in preparation of cooking their own vegetables. The program r ecently beat out nominations from other Boys & Girls Clubs across F lorida and r eceived the top H ealth & Life Skills program at last weeks Florida Area Council meeting in Tampa. Fr om August, 2012 through Ma y, 2013, 50 Hobe Sound children ages eight to 12 years of age participated in the program. E ither two or three times a week (depending on the weather), clubV egetable garden program receives top honors Health officials continue to warn against dengue fever TREASURE COAST The Florida Department of H ealth in Martin County confirmed four additional cases of dengue fever, bringing the total to 15 locally acquired cases in the Rio and Jensen Beach area. Of the cases, nine are Ma r tin County residents and six are St. Lucie residents. D engue Fever (pronounced den' gee) is a disease transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito, not person to person. In the W estern Hemisphere, the Aedes aegypti (pronounced edis egyp-tie) mosquito is the main transmitter of dengue viruses. In some cases, the Aedes albopictus mosquito has also transmitted the disease. Both of these mosquitoes are found in large numbers in Martin and St. Lucie Counties. It is estimated that there are ov er 100 million cases of dengue worldwide each y ear. M osquito Control in Ma r tin County is continuing to inspect and treat properties in the affected areas. The Florida Department of Health continues to advise the public to re main diligent in their personal mosquito protection efforts.

Commissioners from Martin, Palm Beach, S t. Lucie, Indian River, Br evard and Volusia counties, under the working title of the Indian River Lagoon Counties Collabor ative, will convene for the first time next week to discuss local water quality issues. "This regional group will be instrumental in increasing citizen awareness of toxins and pollutants throughout the Lagoon, will seek to understand the sources of problems and then map out regional solutions r estoring the health and beauty of our dying Lagoon," said Martin C ounty District 2 Commissioner Ed Fielding, who initiated the Collabor ative. "The Lagoon makes us all neighbors." The first workshop of the Collaborative will be held on Friday, Sept. 13 at 9 a.m. in the Commissioners Chambers.

Dr ain and Cover. DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, flower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren't being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pet's water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that dont accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COV ER skin with clothing or repellent Clothing Wear shoes, socks, and long pants and long-sleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. REPELLENT Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. R epellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children y ounger than 2 months old. CO VER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios. T ips on Repellent Use Always read label directions carefully for the approved usage before you apply a repellent. Some r epellents are not suitable for children. Products with concentrations of up to 30 percent DEET (N,N-diethyl-mtoluamide) are generally r ecommended. Other US Environmental Protection Agency-approved repellents contain Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535. These products are generally available at local pharmacies. Look for active ingredients to be listed on the product label. Apply insect repellent to exposed skin, or onto clothing, but not under clothing. In protecting children, r ead label instructions to be sure the repellent is age-appropriate. According to the CDC, mosquito re pellents containing oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be used on children under the age of three y ears. DEET is not recommended on children y ounger than two months old. Avoid applying repellents to the hands of children. Adults should apply r epellent first to their own hands and then transfer it to the childs skin and clothing. If additional protection is necessary, apply a permethrin repellent directly to your clothing. Again, always follow the manufacturers directions.

staff instructed children on how to plan, build, plant, maintain, and sustain the garden which included plenty of fruits, vegetables and herbs. W e want the children to know that they can start small with planting herbs, Mr. Vaina said. We are slowly getting kids to love vegetables. The idea is for them to incorporate them into their daily meals. Growing vegetables, getting their hands dirty, watering, weeding, picking them when theyre ripe, and then helping in the process of eating them is enjoyable and rewarding for the kids. They are also learning basic botany and getting a lesson about the environment. Children also participated in Creepy Crawly sessions where they learned about the beneficial and harmful bugs and insects in the garden. In addition to getting their hands dirty every w eek, the children kept journals that visually charted the growth of the different plants in the garden. As eating healthy was a major component of the program, participants also documented in their journals what they ate at school and at home. To r einforce eating healthy, the Positive Sp r outs coordinator, S imone Scott, also held regular cooking classes in the H obe Sound Club kitchen. W e are getting ready to plant our fall vegetables, Ms. Scott said. If the w eather cooperates, we should be planting outside next week. If we run into bad weather, well start planting some things in flower pots so we can begin the process. The Boys and Girls Club is located at11500 S.E. La r es Ave.,Hobe Sound.

The American Institute of Architects Treasure Coast chapter and the Treasure Coast Builders Association have joined Treasure C oast Food Bank as presenters for the inaugural event. The teams will be able to sculpt any design they want, but each must fit in a 10 foot by 10 foot square and be a maximum of 10 feet high. Each must be made of no less than 1,000 unopened cans of food with minimal elements of non-perishable packaged food or props. W e re excited to bring Canstruction to the Treasure Coast and grateful for the outstanding support from the professionals in our community, said Judith Cruz, Treasure Coast F ood Bank CEO. This also is an excellent way for more people to learn about hunger on the Treasure C oast while the sculptures are on display. People will be astounded by the creativity that goes into these sculptures. T eams must register by Friday, S ept. 20 and submit sculpture plans by Fr iday, Sept. 27. The sculptures will be built between 8 a.m. and 6 p .m. on Oct. 12 and will be on display until Oct. 27.

This "Learn to Surf" event brings together Wounded W arriors and volunteers from local communities to share in a morning of surfing, camaraderie, and healing. O ur focus is to let these W ounded Warriors know how much we care about them, and to share our favorite sport with them, says Bruce Strunk, owner of S punkys Surf Shop. J ust like much of the military, our community of surfers is a tight-knit group and many of our volunteers we re either veterans or have close ties to the military. We want to let these men and women know we appreciate their service, and to aid in their recovery. It was a great event last year, and were looking forward to helping these Warriors successfully complete the days mission of learning to stand up on a surfboard! The event will begin with the Wounded Warriors being escorted into the park to the applause and support of ov er 65 volunteers. After introductions and the opening ceremonies, including our National Anthem, W ounded Warriors, volunteers and sponsors will assemble for a group photo. Each Wounded Warrior will then proceed to the water with a "core team" of volunteers who will provide instruction and safety patrol, with fellow volunteers on shore providing encouragement and support. F ollowing surf lessons, the W ounded Warriors, volunteers and park employees will join together for a luncheon provided by "Friends of Florida State Park s.". Last year's initial event was a beautiful success, with our Wounded Warriors leaving with a smile, a goody bag filled with surf-related items, and a framed group photo signed by the volunteers. The mission of Wounded W arrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors. WWPs purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the publics aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs. WWP is a national, nonpartisan organization headquartered in Jacksonville. To get involved and learn more, visit woundedwarriorproject.org.

The following is a direct quote from an anonymous car dealers email I r eceived this morning in r esponse to one of my rec ent columns in this newspaper: I don't think y ou would make any of these comments if you sold Fords in a non-metro market. How do you expect dealers to change when consumers think they should pay less than dealer cost for a car and then walk into any other form of retail store and pay what they are asking?? Y our ideas are noble but there are other dealers who have tried 'your' methods who are no longer in business. This dealer is saying that his customers are so r uthless and cunning that they wont buy a car unless they can buy it below his cost and his only solution is to trick them into thinking that they are buying it below his cost, like tacking on a dealer fee to the price they quoted the customer. He also goes on to say that my ideas are noble but I cant possibly be successful and I will go broke trying. I truly appreciate his concern and I want to assure him, if he is reading this article, that my business is doing very nicely. This attitude is actually a prevailing part of the culture in many car dealerships. Many dealers, dealer managers, and sales people dont trust their customers (how ironic!). They dont even like their customers. A very common expression among car dealers and their sales staff is Buyers are liars. This means that a prospective customer will not tell you the truth about the condition of his trade-in, he will lie to you about the price he got from your competitor, and he is likely to remove those new tires that were on his trade-in when the dealer appraised it when he comes in to pick up his new car. There are also a lot of dealerships where used car buyers and people with bad credit are held in especially low esteem. They have nicknames for people with bad credit like slugs and roaches. A pparently dehumanizing these unfortunate members of our society with derogatory labels makes it easier to treat them so shabbily. People with bad credit are targeted with direct mail and newspaper ads making absurd promises that convince prospective customers that they can finance a car no matter how bad their credit. In some dealerships applicants are coached on how to falsify credit application and pay r ecords. In some cases the applicant may not even know he is signing a false credit application which is federal offence. In most cases, the credit is refused and the applicants are not even given the courtesy of Responding to the buyers are liars idea TREASURE COAST The Martin Health Foundation LifeSavers have been raising funds to benefit the health and wellbeing of Treasure Coast families since 2002. On July 20, the group of volunteers from Martin and St. Lucie counties hit a major milestone, topping $1 million in funds raised. They hit the mark with a sold-out Goombay Bash, the LifeSavers signature event, which drew 850 people to the Jensen Beach C auseway Park and raised a total of $180,000. The LifeSavers exemplify the partnership Martin H ealth System has with the community, said Kelly Ro w ell, director of development for sustainable giving at Martin Health F oundation. Many of them have started their families here, have used Ma r tin Healths services, and want to make sure the same level of care is available for others. Their passion and dedication to this cause have made it successful. Now in its 12th year, the Goombay Bash event featured a Polynesian theme with live music, entertainment, raffles, food and libations. The LifeSavers have become known for creating an elaborate, progressive event atmosphere this years Goombay featured live-streaming photos through social media, allowing guests to share the fun with people at the event and even those who we re not in attendance. The annual event supports mothers and babies born at Martin Medical C enter, as well as pediatric care and rehabilitation. Ev ent proceeds are used to purchase technology, equipment, renovations and fund special programs like the mother-baby home visit program. In addition to programs currently subsidized by the LifeSavers, they have expanded their reach into S t. Lucie County and are committed to help fund services provided at Tradition Medical Center, a new hospital in west Port St. L ucie opening in December. This new 90-bed facility will include 14 labor, delivery and recovery r ooms, as well as six neonatal intensive care unit rooms. Top sponsors of this y ears event included: Balfour Beatty Construction, HKS, Harper Limbach and T eam Tradition, MetCare & H umana, Michael Earley, Ev entmakers International, Sailfish Splash Waterpark, AquaServices, Park P harmacy and DAgonstino Foundation, All Access A VL and Kathleen Wyatt D esigns. Ma r tin Health System is a nonprofit, communitybased health care organization that has served the r egion for more than 70 y ears. It offers a continuum of care including preventive, primary and acute hospital care, as well as cancer and cardiac care, w ellness and rehabilitation services.

Safety should remain in focus during football season TREASURE COAST B ack to school, fall football, and gridiron memories are best when safety is the number one factor in winning. D aniel A. Rukeyser, D.C., founder of Vital Wellness C enter, reminds parents, coaches, and players that proper precautions on and off the field add up to a winning season for the community. F ootball safety, for players of all ages, begins at home with the players parents, said Dr. Rukeyser. I t s generally recognized that children under six should not play competitive football and children under ten should not play tackle football. However, for every play, no matter the sport they play, a pre-participation physical evaluation should be standard procedure for athletes of all ages. Ev ery athlete should r eceive a pre-participation physical evaluation to detect conditions which could make playing football or other sports life-threatening or disabling and detect medical or musculoskeletal conditions that could predispose an athlete to injury or illness during practice or competition. The evaluation should include both a medical history and physical exam. The PPE should be performed by a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner with the training and medical skills to recognize heart disease and orthopedic conditions of concern for football. In addition to cardiovascular screening, the PPE for football should include an orthopedic exam focusing on neck strength, joint r ange of motion, flexibility, anatomical misalignments and muscle-tendon imbalances and documentation/re-examination of past neurological, bone and joint injuries. Conditions should be documented which have potential implications for an athletes safety during practice or games (e.g., visual impairment, diabetes, hypertension, asthma, severe allergies, sickle cell disease, history of heat illness, history of concussion, use of medications, use of steroids, symptoms of eating disorders, etc.). P arents of young athletes should take an active role in making sure their children are prepared to play safe football. They should be w ell-informed about specific injury prevention measures, including safer blocking and tackling techniques that do not use the head. They should be free to make unannounced visits to practices and should ask questions if they see something that seems unsafe. In addition, parents should be sure any injury is reported to the athletic program staff, should reinforce compliance with treatments or r ehabilitation after injury, Dr Rukeyser said. Dr Rukeyser also says its important that precautions be in place should an injury happen on the field of play during football or other athletic events. A telephone should be immediately available at all game and practice sites, with prominent posting of numbers of ambulance, paramedics, first aid personnel and police. Plainly-marked emergency first aid equipment should be accessible on the field. This equipment should be inspected periodically to assure its completeness, cleanliness and usability. An emergency action plan should be developed and rehearsed. Key personnel who are to carry out the plan should be identified. The plan should include r esponses to severe injuries, hypothermia, heat illness and even allergic reactions to plants and stinging insects. A National Athletic Tr ainers Association-certified athletic trainer or a physician should be available at every game and practice. If this is not possible, a physician should be available by phone or pager. At a minimum, a specific agreement should be negotiated with a local emergency department and/or emergency medical service provider to deal with injured athletes. Up-to-date medical information for each athlete should be immediately accessible at the site of every game and practice. This information should include emergency contacts, preferred physician, preferred hospital and a signed consent form giving permission to provide www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 13, 2013 Martin County A5 ANTIQUE MALLtel.772-460-83733128 N.

Logging on to the internet for the first time can be very confusing. There is a whole new vocabulary to learn and a new set of guidelines to follow. The guidelines I'm speaking of are known as netiquette and are an important part of participating in the online community. Lets go over some basic email etiquette. Email messages are quick to bang out and send instantly with the click of a button, this makes them especially susceptible to bad grammar, lousy spelling and poor content. Remember, humor and sarcasm can easily get lost in a medium like email and can result in some pretty r ude messages being sent. T ake your time with your message and if you are trying to be funny or sarcastic, use a "smiley" or "emoticon." These are little faces created with the characters on the keyboard, and when looked at with your head tilted to the left, look like little facial expressions. F or example, :) is your basic smiley, :( is the same guy only in a bad mood, this emoticon is a wink ;) and this :'( emoticon is crying. Emoticons can be used to put the emotion back into a message that's become sterile and mechanical. Using an emoticon can be essential to let your email recipient know when you are just kidding. If you have a word processor or email client with a spell checker, use it when you compose your message. Also, watch out for the "caps lock" button on your keyboard. T yping in all capital letters is considered shouting and should be avoided. Ive heard the argument that typing in all caps makes it easier to read but if you have trouble seeing when y ou are typing your message, there are other ways to increase the font size. Learn how to increase your font size and dont rely on caps lock. Email has flaws. Avoid foul language and "private" or "confidential" messages. Ne ver send anything you'd be embarrassed for your M om to see (a deleted message can have copies archived all over the place). If y ou send an email message that can get you in trouble, M urphy's Law will kick in and you will (long after you thought the message in question was "deleted.") These guidelines apply not only to email but even more so to message boards and blogs. Message boards are an area where netiquette is of the utmost importance, they are online bulletin boards that are read every day by countless people all over the world and if you post a bad message to one of these boards, you may find yourself the center of a "flame war" and your email box flooded with hundreds of nasty r esponses. Use common sense when posting messages to message boards or blogs. If you have a gut feeling that maybe you shouldn't post a message, don't. Once you post a message you usually can't take it back and you may offend thousands. O ther pitfalls to avoid in the message boards are the "trolls." These insidious little messages are designed to generate outrage and flames. Again, you'll recognize them when you see them, don't r espond. That will only encourage them! Remember these words of wisdom dont feed the trolls! And last, don't fall for any of the countless "get rich schemes" on the 'net. They're there and you'll know them when you see them. Trust me, there is no money waiting in Nigeria, you didnt win some foreign lottery and yo u ll do nothing but annoy people if you forward that chain letter. If it sounds too good to be true then its probably a scam. T ake the time to find out the rules of the road before y ou try to communicate with the masses. Usually checking the Frequently Asked Q uestions before posting messages can help prevent y our email box from overflowing with flames. These suggestions also apply to instant messenger programs and texting. It is easy to forget about manners and grammar when sending text messages and sure, it may be just an instant message but remember there is someone on the other end. Be nice!

Healthy life pays offAs a person who is almost 70 and jumps rope and jogs I'd like to respond to the person who asked: "Do you really think if you don't eat candy or smoke that you'll be skipping rope when you're 70?" Yes. The reason that the U.S. and state governments have (or proposed) putting taxes on tobacco products that cause cancer, and unhealthy food that causes diabetes, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease is the cost to our nation. The cost of ruining your body with tobacco and unhealthy food makes everyone's healthcare go up.Selling in FloridaR eal Estate is different in Florida? I have owned six homes in four states and never had a problem. There were buyer agents and seller agents. In attempting to sell a condo in the area has been a unique experience to say the least. E pisode 1: I was asked right away upon the person entering my "home" "Where do you think you live?" You live in Florida. No one has Cherry furniture here!" "You need to rethink this place if you are considering selling!" "Put in white wicker!!" E pisode 2: When an agent was picking up my possessions and telling me they would have to be removed as she put them in a pile I understand re-staging but to insult y our collection of angels or doilies under stem glassware etc. and stated that she would only sign a contract after I had gotten rid of my personal items and then she could take pictures. E pisode 3: I was told not to touch a thing as my "home" was in "perfect condition." Pictures were taken by a cell phone rather by professional photographer who was supposed to come with agent. Many promises never took place...When I corrected descriptions of my condo I was told because, "One could see my kitchen it was not a dining room but an eat in kitchen"because I had a television in my living room it was a family room! I never had a wall oven. I had an over the range microwave. I did not have a glassed in porch. At what point does the customer have control over her listing when hiring an agent from the realtor agency? M uch stress allows me to consider the alternate method here in Florida in selling a condo like word of mouth at pool side or playing cards in the afternoons.Drug testing for welfareI read recently where the governor of North Carolina made a very intelligent decision and vetoed drug testing for people on public assistance, calling it "government ov erreach." He noted that this effort in other states has only resulted in increased taxpayer cost and has done little to reduce drug addiction. Has anyone taken a detailed look at this onerous program our governor installed here in Florida? How many people have been denied benefits as a result and what percentage are they of the total population requesting benefits? How much does the program cost taxpayers? Has the legislation proven worthwhile, or is this simply another layer of intrusive government dumped upon the taxpayers' backs? I would truly like to see a detailed reportAbout gas regulationsI am sorry to hear you are so inconvenienced, by having to decide something for yourself. Of course, the government should decide what is better for you should you spend $3.50 or $4 a gallon for your gas. They will send someone over to pick out your clothes in the morning too. Y our forefathers died to allow you the right to make choices that you feel are in your best interest. The Soviet Union was where you could have lived, so you didnt have to make those choices. Of course, you would not have had a car, so the question would have been moot. Many foolish people want others to decide everything for them, and end up with nothing, to decide over. That is the terrible burden of Freedom you actually have to do something. By the way, you could move to Amsterdam where gas prices are regulated at $6.50 per gallon and you wouldnt have to struggle with choosing a price.Natural right?S ome illegal immigrants have come up with a new claim, a "natural right" to be here. They assert simply setting foot on our soil, they deserve all the rights and privileges of citizenship. Somehow, this implies the right to break our laws. Ronald Reagan stated, "A country without secure borders ceases to be a nation." Under President Obama, we are moving in that dangerous direction. Are republicans to blame?F or almost five years President Obama has been blaming George Bush for all our troubles. Predictably, everything is the fault of Republicans, he says, including overspending, debt, gridlock, the Gulf Oil spill, the Japanese tsunami, Al-Qaeda, Benghazi, Detroit and the outsourcing of American jobs. Whatever happened to the concept that the buck stops here?About facismI find the arbitrary listing of certain features emblematic of Fascism or any other ism, generally not a persuasive argument when trying to castigate an opposing view point. One could take any or all of the fourteen points ascribed and rebut them. For the sake of brevity let, the last item be emblematic, Fraudulent Elections: Elections are often manipulated by smear campaigns . In the last election, the widely viewed use of an old woman going ov er the cliff in a wheelchair the word smear springs to mind quite facilely. Per haps the more important question might be, do some fear their liberties endangered? Does your philosophy promote John Lockes tenets: The Creator gave mankind two inalienable rights, self-ownership and ownership of ones labor, perforce implying that man can join his labor to an artifact and it becomes his produce. By extension that produce can be freely exchanged with another, in an act called capitalism yet another ism. Or, does your philosophy ascribe to the concept that the r ights of man are issued by the State leading to different ism. So far the ism that attaches to free trade among men has produced a higher standard of living for more people than any other ism yet discovered. In the U.S. of A. by the 1850s it resulted in a standard of living twice that of any other country. Today with that particular ism in decline, we have one-hundred million on food assistance. It seems that ism capitalism should be what we all strive for, and anyone seeking to diminish that freedom should be deterred! About ObamacareN ancy Pelosi famously said Congress should vote for Obamacare without reading it to find out what is in it. We are learning what is in it, and it isn't pretty. Sarah Palin said it includes rationing. Liberals called her foolish, ignor ant and wrong. However, we are now finding out about something called the Independent Payment Advisory B oard which is mandated to make decisions concerning accessibility. Accessibility is Washington code for ra tioning. No one can say we were not warned. Got something to say? Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at (772) 465-5504or e-mail newsfp@hometownnewsol.com.

When you retire, it would be convenient if all your expenses were to "retire" as w ell. But they won't. In fact, y ou'll likely need between 80 percent and 100 percent of your pre-retirement income to maintain your standard of living in retirement. And you may even need more, depending on what you plan to do during y our retirement years. So, w ell before you retire, ask y ourself a couple of key questions: Where will the money come from? And when can I get at it? Let's take a look at some of your likely retirement income "pools," along with the rules governing withdrawals from these sources. 401(k) plan If you have a 401(k) plan at work, take full advantage of it. Your earnings have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis and you typically contribute pre-tax dollars, so the more you put in, the lower your adjusted annual taxable income. Generally, y ou have to be at least 591/2 to withdraw money from your 401(k) without incurring a penalty of 10 percent of the taxable amount of your withdrawal. How ever, you can avoid this penalty under the following circumstances: Y ou leave your employer when you are at least 55 or y ou become disabled. Y ou take a series of equal periodic payments, made at least annually, for your life or life expectancy. Y ou "roll over" your 401(k) withdrawals into an IRA. Of course, you may not want, or need, to tap into your 401(k) at either age 55 or 591/2. If that's the case, you can leave your account alone and, hopefully, watch it continue to have the potential to grow. But you will have to start taking withdrawals when you r each 70-1/2, if you haven't already done so. IRA As is the case with y our 401(k), you will, in most cases, have to pay a 10 percent tax penalty if you take distributions from your IRA before age 59-1/2. And y ou must begin taking r equired minimum distributions from a Traditional IRA once you reach 70-1/2. If you have a Roth IRA, you face no mandatory distribution rules, so you never have to touch the money, which means it can potentially grow tax-free for years. S ocial Security You can start taking Social Security when you reach 62, but your monthly payments will only be about 70 percent to 75 percent the exact amount depends on your age of y our payments if you waited until your reached "full" r etirement age, which is probably 66 or 67. (Social S ecurity determines your full retirement age by your y ear of birth.) To most effectively incorporate your 401(k) and IRA withdrawals, and your S ocial Security payments, into your retirement income, you'll need to consult with your financial advisor. Also, to make sure y ou're not adversely affecting your tax situation when you start taking these withdrawals and payments, talk to your tax advisor. But don't wait until you're almost retired to start planning for it. Your decisions on when to start taking withdrawals from y our various retirement accounts are usually irrevocable so you'll want to get them right the first time.

I dont claim to be a psychologist (and I dont even play one on TV), but I have read articles explaining how humans will stereotype other people in a fashion that falsely justifies their negative behavior toward those same people. We see this with racism and even in wars. If you make yo urself believe that car buyers are out to take advantage of you, buyers are liars, you cant feel guilty about tricking them into paying a dealer fee. If y ou trick a roach or a slug into coming in to buy a car on credit when they probably cant, why should you feel guilty? After all, roaches and slugs dont have feelings. What these kinds of dealerships dont understand is that you must trust a person first before y ou can expect her to trust you. You have to treat a person with r espect before you can expect that person to r espect you. Somebody has got to go first. My experience over the past 40-plus years as a car dealer is that 99.9 percent of my customers are good people who I can believe and trust. Those are pretty good odds and I just assume that every customer I am dealing with is part of that 99.9 percent. Once in a great while I get burned, but the loss from that one in a thousand that takes advantage is far outwe ighted by the other 999 who respond positively to my trusting them and treating them with r espect. MARTIN COUNTY Ma r tin County has placed seventh in the D igital Counties Survey for the category of counties with a population of 150,000 or less. This is the fourth consecutive year that the county has placed in the top 10 of county governments in this population category. The survey recognizes leading examples of counties using information and communications technology. Annual polling shows how county governments are using digital technologies to serve their citizens and streamline operations. "The Digital Counties Su rv ey identifies the very best examples of how counties are aligning technology to support strategic priorities and create crucial operational and administrative efficiencies," said Kevin Kryzda, Martin County I nformation Technology D epartment's chief information officer. "Especially important during these tough economic times, counties across the country are using innovative technologies to reduce costs and enhance service delivery."

My quest took me to Providence Golf Club in Davenport, a few miles south of Kissimmee just off U.S. Highway 17-92. Anyone playing a round at one of the resort courses should consider saving a few dollars and playing here instead or adding it to their menu. Pr o vidence Golf Club sits at the very east end of one of the area's newer developments, and right up against protected wetlands. The front nine has a smattering of homes, while the back nine is beautifully void of them. The par-72 layout has four sets of tees, with the longest stretching the course to 6,929 yards. The shortest set comes in at just ov er 5,000. The course was designed by M ike Dasher. He refers to the course as a hybrid, combining prairie, old F lorida and parkland styles to give the golfer an everchanging pallet that makes for memorable holes and changing strategies. S ome holes feature large, mature oaks framing the greens and fairways. Others use native wind-blown grasses, giving the holes an expansive, big sky feel. Amazingly, there is a hole here that truly irritated me. Arriving at the short driv able par-4 fifth hole, I was excited at the prospect of driving the green. In my opinion, a hole this short should offer the golfer several options from the tee. Do you lay up, or challenge the hole and go for the green? W ell, since there is a large lake right in front of the green, there is only one option, you lay up. I hate being forced to hit a hybrid or mid-iron from the tee on a par-4. After a six-iron from the tee and a nine-iron into the green I walked off with a mundane par that could have been a much more exciting eagle or doublebogey. The uphill, par-3 eighth hole has the toughest green on the property. From the tee you must hit a mid to short iron over a creek and to the right spot on the green if you expect to keep the ball there. Nearly every shot missing the green will simply funnel toward the creek well below the green. The front-nine closes with the longest hole on the course. Measuring 559 yards from the back, you need two solid shots just to set up a short pitch onto a huge green. When you reach the back nine, you forget that youre amidst a housing development as the holes traverse along as an old Florida layout with expansive lakes and heavily wooded wetlands. F or the most part, the fairways and greens are very generous at Providence. You need not fear hitting your driver a little off line, but bring your best putter with y ou, because you could find y ourself on the green, a long way from the hole, facing a putt that breaks in more than one direction. The dogleg left par-4 14th plays over 400 yards from all four sets of tees. To cut some distance off your approach, your drive must go over a strand of trees not far from the tees. The approach is to a wellguarded, shallow green. The tightest driving hole on the course is at the par-5 15th. After a solid drive, one must make that tough decision to lay up or go for it. The green sits atop a hill, and is well guarded by water to the left and bunkers, trees and a hill to the right. The 16th hole could be the best on the property. Fr om an elevated tee, this par-4 begs players to cut the corner over a wetland area. A great tee shot could mean a difference of 50 yards on y our approach shot. The two closing holes, a par-3 and a par-4, are solid as well. The 17th is a medium-length par-3 that would serve as an example of what the great explorer P once de Leon would have built had he built a course when he came to Florida in the early 1500s. The 18th isnt long by any means, but with water r unning the entire length down the right side, an accurate tee shot and an exacting approach are r equired. A back-right pin position could cause you to wish you'd put more antiperspirant on earlier in the day.

JEN5OFF INDIANTOWN From tales of sailing across the A tlantic and landing at Ellis I sland to stories of descending on American soil with dreams of a new life, most people living in the United S tates can trace their ancestors to a story of a new beginning. B ecause so many individuals can trace their heritage to other parts of the world, the story of how modernday Americans came to U.S. soil is fascinating. The Smithsonian Museum delves into that aspect of history with their traveling exhibit, The Journey Stories. The exhibit takes a look at historical accounts of how families came to America, traces developments in modes of travel and transportation, and explores how these factors have played a significant role in shaping Americans' identity, particularly sense of freedom. W e have been preparing for this exhibit for some time, said Sandy Henry, project director. I ndiantown is one of the most diverse towns in the county, so its fitting that the exhibit makes a stop here. The Journey Stories exhibit examines the intersection between various means of travel and Americans' desire to feel free to move. The stories are diverse and focus on immigration, migration, innovation and freedom. I mmigrants share their accounts of coming toTHROUGH SEPT. 13 'Wheels of Change' exhibition tour: 3:30 p.m. weekdays, Sept. 3-13, Sept. 3-13, at the Elliott Museum, 825 N.E. Ocean Blvd., Stuart.

Will meet on the One of the greatest joys of living and gardening in F lorida is the ability to grow fresh veggies throughout the year. Even though our summer months create a few challenges, it is still possible to grow these fresh delights year-round. When you visit your favorite nursery or retail garden center, you will often see a dizzying var iety of seeds offered for sale. The plain truth is that some of these var ieties will not always grow well in our tropical climate. Here are some of the best varieties to try in y our home garden. One of the most popular vegetables in this country is the potato. These curious vegetables are used in many dishes and are served a variety of ways. You can use them mashed, baked, fried and are used in making potato chips. On average, each person consumes 125 pounds of potatoes each y ear! No one can truly appreciate the taste of a great tasting potato until y ou have picked one from y our own garden. In order to grow a healthy potato crop, there are some initial soil conditions that must be met prior to planting. In F lorida, most of the work is already done for you as they like a high acidic w ell-drained soil. This is the case for many Florida gardens. You do not want to plant potatoes in an area where standing water might be a problem. If you think this might be a problem, add soil to raise the bed at least 10 12 inches to ensure the crop stays above the water line. P otatoes are heavy feeders and require lots of nutrition during their life cycle. A 10-0-10-fertilizer blend is ideal for these plants. M ost grocery stores and r etail nurseries carry seeds for potatoes. The problem with some of these seeds is that they might not be disease free. It is better, if possible, to buy your seeds from a certified seed supply house. The seeds or tubers you buy from these growers will do much better in the home garden. A commercial garden supply center will usually carry these certified seeds and tubers. Use your local y ellow pages to shop around for these seeds and tubers. Tubers are small plants that have already been started and are in small pots ready to plant. P lant your potatoes about 6-8 inches apart with the rows about 36 inches apart. You will need some space to grow these plants. Seed pieces MARTIN COUNTY Ma ry s S helter recently donated eight cribs to Martin County Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care, a medical day care center for special needs children with complex and fragile medical, developmental and technology dependent needs. Thank you to Marys S helter for supporting Martin County PPEC and the families we serve, said Ev elyn Duah, Martin County PPEC Administrator. The cribs are a great new addition to our nursery. Mar tin County PPEC collects donations for the families of medically-fragile and complex children who often struggle financially to purchase basic items like diapers and clothing due to expensive medical bills. Donations of food, clothing, diapers and more are greatly appreciated. The Martin County PPEC staff sees the struggles of parents of special needs children daily, but the most pressing concern is finances," said Ms. Duah. "Frequent trips to the doctor's office and specialists along with medications on top of essentials like diapers can be devastating to a family's budget. These donations help to meet basic needs when the families just can't afford them."

Callshould be planted 4 inches below the surface with the eyes facing up and the cut side down. Although you can plant potatoes year r ound, you will get better results during the fall and winter when we receive less r ain. If you do summer planting, use the strategy of raising the bed so standing water does not become a problem. S ome other vegetable varieties we will be covering in the coming weeks include lettuce, bell pepper, sugar snap peas, onions and tomatoes. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years e xperience in gardening and landscape. S end e-mails to hometowngarden@gmail.com or visit his website www.hometowngarden.com Lets start by talking about the river. You have to fish early. If y ou wait too late in the day, the fish will hide from the sun. High temperatures mean warm water. F ish are smarter than theyre given credit for. They know to get out of the sun. They will be in the skinny water looking for breakfast and you need to be there to serve it. Start with top water lure then go to a sub-surface lure as the sun rises. Fr om the Nettles Island north, pay attention to the treed shore line and the bait. They will tell you where the fish are moving to. Lots of trout, ladyfish and snook and yes, you can go south to the Stuart causeway. Theres lots of snook and maybe one will be in the slot. T arpon are hanging around the deeper water, bridges and intersecting channels. You need to see what has their eye and match the profile. The prime hour is early but it depends on the bait. We have had 40pound class fish feeding at the change of the tide all week. B ig jacks are taking up the slack, feeding on anything that moves from small to big, so hang on. A few top-of-the-slot r eds have been reported on live shrimp from county line north. Lots of trees and long docks provide the shade for their comfort zone on the west side. There are lots of big ladyfish to keep anglers busy on both sides. There are lots of fish at the bridges, such as snook, tarpon, jacks, mangroves, blues and macs to name a few. Theyre feeding on mullet of all sizes and glass minnows. You will see the cloud coming and plenty of small pins are keeping all of them fat and happy. Yes, shrimp will catch them. Su rf is the same as last w eek with Tarpon (80lbs plus), snook (way over slot), and jacks that will pull a boat all following the bait schools. Time is a hard call because the bait is in and out all day, best bet is to watch for a high tide, two hours before should find plenty of fish. If you want to take dinner home, there are lots of big croaker and plenty of whiting out there. Off shore plenty of small Dolphin from forty feet out on the weed lines, please let them grow. Go catch a Dolphin that you need a gaff to put in the boat, three hundred feet and deeper, yes on the w eed lines and they are hungry. Few black fins and plenty of bonita at the hill but hard to go past fish to catch fish. M angroves, muttons and grouper are on the bottom. There are plenty of local reefs that get no attention, so look at your charts. From 40feet you could have the numbers and be the only one there. R eds have to be thrown back but there are so many out there you will not be disappointed. You could drift over or anchor, and put a sardine down. When it hits the bottom, give the r eel two cranks and you will be ready. Bring lots of ice because you are going to need it. Live baits are not an issue, there are lots of sardines, so, thread fins and you know how I feel about mullet. Theres no excuse, go catch a fish.
