TREASURE COAST The inaugural Twilight Honor Flight 5K on Nov. 1 is about more than participants rushing to the finish line amid aerial acrobatics and fireworks, decked out in red, white and blue glow gear as they race around all of the air show festivities. It s about raising money and voices to grant Americas veterans what theyve longed for years to see. The fundraising 5K takes place at W itham Airport right after the N ational Anthem at the Stuart Air Sh ow and benefits Honor Flight, an organization that flies World W ar II veterans to Washington D.C. to see the World War II monument. B ut with the recent government shutdown, the monument, along with many other attractions, has been closed to the public. So in an effort to ensure those who served get to see the memorial erected in their honor, not only will race registration proceeds benefit honor flight, but Fair Wind Air Charter, who is sponsoring the r ace, is asking participants to write to politicians asking for the barricades to be lowered. The memorial was built in their honor and having them stand outside the gates is just a disgrace, said Alex Beringer, executive vice president at Fair Wind Air Charter. No one is certain whether or not the barricades will be open when the next group of area veterans arrive on Oct. 19, but the trip is still on. What Mr. Beringer and so many others are hoping is that so many people appeal to their congressmen, senators, and even the president, that the politicians will r eopen the memorial to the public. The corporation has even gone as far as providing links on their w ebsite with contact information for those politicians to make it as easy as possible for the community to email or send Facebook and Familiar face takes over helm at nonprofit MARTIN COUNTY The new Chief Operating Officer for Boys and Girls Clubs of Martin County has experience to spare and cant wait to put it to good use furthering the mission of the organization in the community.

He has also been the Di r ector of Operations for Sodasystems and president, owner and operator of Kare Pr o, a local car wash chain. I have a pretty wide range of exper ience, Mr. Ranieri said. Experience he expects to utilize in staff development, safety, facilities management, even fundraising. W e re lucky to have him, said D avid Vaina, communications director for BGCMC. W e think he can make our organization a lot more efficient. B ut perhaps his most important experience to prepare him for his new role is that he served on the BGCMC board for more than 10 y ears, on the BGC state board for more than a year, and was a MARTIN COUNTY CALLING FOR HELPReady for questions like Have you tried turning it off and on again? be patient theyre trying to help P ageA6 INSIDEV ol. 12, No. 20 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Oct. 18, 2013 778408 Go for the plastic bricks or go just to enjoy the gardens at former Cypress Gardens site IRSC offering six study abroad trips for 2014 in Europe, Caribbean, more STUDY ABROADA4 GARDEN NOOKA8 LEGOLAND INDEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B4 Horoscopes B1 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 Viewpoint A6Beach unguarded; swim/bathe at own riskR ecent weather conditions have eroded Bathtub R eef Beach, resulting in Ma r tin County Fire Rescue needing to remove the lifeguard stand from the shoreline.

In an effort to eliminate bullying of any kind, the district will present Martin Stands UpAgainst B ullying! It will be a free, informative, and highly entertaining presentation by K eith Deltano, a public speaker and educational comedian whose goal is not to lecture, but entertain. H e has real knack for being able to connect with students, said Michele B lanco, Public Information Specialist for Martin County Schools. Mr. Deltanos goal is to r eally get to the heart of the issue, going beyond explaining why bullying is harmful to enlighten students as to why bullies do what they do. He takes a serious subject and uses the guise of comedy to create a lesson that teenagers can not only learn from, but actually enjoy. What a great concept, Ms. Blanco said. Fo r tunately, Martin C ounty Schools havent experienced the level of bullying that many other areas of the state and country have, but Ms. B lanco said the plan is to keep it that way, hence the proactive presentation. I t s important to engage and communicate with the students as to why this is important, Ms. Blanco said. Mr. Deltano will begin his presentation at 7 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the Jensen B each High School auditori um where students from grades 5-12 and their parents are invited to attend. After he gets the audience laughing and taking a long, hard, introspective look at themselves, there will be a dessert reception with Superintendent Lau-See S CHOOLS, A2Area veterans to benefit from inaugural twilight run Nov. 1 See KNOW, A7 Rob RanieriBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See H ELM, A9By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsHit em high,hit em low See TW I LIGHT, A2 Y es, We Do Deliver!

Massey, President of Indian River State College, has been selected from more than 1,200 state and community college presidents nationwide to receive the Association of Community C ollege Trustees highest CEO award. The 2013 Marie Y. Martin Chief Executive Officer A ward was presented to Dr. Ma ssey in front of a standing-room-only crowd of more than 2,000 college trustees and presidents on O ct. 4 at the National ACCT Leadership Conference in S eattle. H onored for his exceptional leadership, talent for translating vision into action and strong record of accomplishments, Dr. Massey was previously named the S outhern Regional CEO of the Year, which qualified him as one of five regional finalists for the national award. A ccepting the national award on behalf of the entire Indian River State College family, Dr. Massey credited the dedication of the College faculty and staff, great students, sound direction by the Board of Trustees, and tremendous community support for IRSCs achievements. W e have an outstanding team, and attaining this level of national stature is absolutely due to the combined efforts and contributions of all those committed to the Colleges success, Dr. Ma ssey said. IRSC Board of Trustees members Werner Bols, Chairman, of Stuart, and J ose Conrado, of Vero Beach, we re present at the ACCT Leadership Conference when the award was announced. We couldnt be more proud, Mr. Bols csaid. This recognition of Dr Massey is exceptionally w ell-deserved. O ne of the hallmarks of Dr Masseys presidency is his intense commitment to community needs, building numerous collaborative partnerships at the local, state and national levels to foster economic and workforce development, Mr. B ols said. Under his leadership, IRSC has become a nationally respected, highperforming institution with far-reaching benefits for the Tr easure Coast and our students. In recognition of Dr. M asseys dedication to excellence and world-class r esults, the IRSC Board whole-heartedly commends and congratulates him. Dr Massey was appointed IRSCs third president and CEO in 1988, and his tenure in office has been marked by a legacy of exceptional accomplishments. Examples include: E xpanding enrollment by 300 percent in over 130 D egree and Certificate programs. S ignificantly expanding the Colleges five campuses to include over 700 acres and 1.5 million square feet of state-of-the-art educational facilities. Leading the Colleges transition from Indian River C ommunity College to Indian River State College, expanding the College mission to become a Baccalaur eate degree-granting institution, and establishing 23 new Bachelors Degree programs linked directly to r egional workforce needs. A chieving national rankings for IRSC as the 10th best college in the Southern R egion by U.S. News & World R eport and 4th most affordable college by the U.S. D epartment of Education. I ncreasing Foundation assets by more than 900 percent and raising funds to support student scholarship awards of $3.3 million annually. S ecuring more than $90 million in local, state and national grant awards over the past ten years for projects ranging from the highly successful Regional Center for Nuclear Education and Tr aining to the new Lasers and Fiber Optics Regional E ducation Center. S upporting high-quality instruction as evidenced by the fact that IRSC consistently ranks Number 1 among the 28 Florida College System institutions in the percent of budget dedicated directly to instruction, and lowest among FCS institutions in administrative costs. Ensuring an exemplary fiscal audit history for over 25 years. Dr Massey, an Indian River County resident, was first employed by the College as a biology professor in 1973 and promoted to several administrative positions prior to becoming president in 1988.

MARTIN COUNTY The B usiness Development Board of Martin County received two Silver Awards for Excellence in Economic Development from the International E conomic Development C ouncil. The first award was for their Ma r tin County Board MeetingsDont Have To Be Boring ad campaign for communities with populations of 25,000 200,000. The BDBMC also received an award in the S pecial Purpose Website Category for its newly designed www.yesmartinfl.com site. The honor was presented today during the IEDC Annual Conference, currently being held in Philadelphia. The Excellence in Economic Development Awards r ecognizes the Business De velopment Board of Martin C ounty as being one of the leading organizations in the industry for innovation, creativity and successful strategies, said Paul Krutko, IEDC chair. These awards are meant to honor the organizations and individuals who are dedicated to making a positive change in their communities. This organization uses creative solutions and inventive ideas, and offers other r egions a wonderful example to learn and benefit from. The award represents an acknowledgment and appreciation for the Business Development B oard of Martin Countys dedication to continuous growth within itself, as well as improving the industry overall. The idea for the advertising campaign was developed in house at the BDBMC and utilized actual Martin County CEOs for a mock board meeting on Stuart Beach. The BDBMC was also recognized with an Award of Excellence earlier in the year from the S outhern Economic Development Council for the same ad campaign. Being recognized internationally by your peers is an honor for the BDBMC and Martin County, said Tim Dougher, Executive Director, BDBMC. We have a great team at the BDBMC and look forward to continuing to enhance our economic development efforts, Mr. Dougher said. The second award was for the BDBMCs newly designed and interactive website www.yesmartinfl.com.

Y ou may be familiar with A utoTrader.com, A utoByTel.com, Cars.com, C ostco, Sams Warehouse, and TrueCar.com. There are thousands of local, private brokers who will buy a car for y ou for a fee. There are also a lot of other organizations that provide auto buying services for their members. AAA, American Express, Consumer R eports, PenFed, Nationwide, GEICO, USAA are just a few. The first thing to remember is that all auto buying services are in the business to make a profit. They are all middle men that you and/or the dealers pay fees to. Paying a fee raises the cost of the car to the dealer. That means that if you are a shrewd negotiator who really does their homework you should be able to buy a car for as low a price as any auto buying service and save the cost of the fee. R ealistically, very few people are that good at negotiating. Remember that car salesmen and managers are professional negotiators. This brings to mind the old jokeWhen you sit down at a poker game and look all around the table but dont see a sucker. Youre the sucker! B esides lacking professional negotiation skills, few people have the thick skin to be able to deal with the gameplaying and insulting shenanigans of car salesmen and their managers. In addition to the pain of buying a car is the inordinate amount of time it can take. I consider local, individual brokers as being the least efficient and trustworthy of all auto buying services. Most auto brokers are ex car salesmen. They charge you a fee and they often charge the dealer a fee too. A private brokers fee is usually much higher than a national auto buying services. At my dealership Ive paid brokers several thousand dollars to his customer and had to charge a lot more for the car than if the customer had come to me directly. The broker probably charged the customer a fee too. There are a few brokers who are trustworthy and wont gouge their customers, but they are few and far between. As far as all of the national buying services, its still buyer beware. My two favorites are TrueCar.com and Costco, but even with these two you should never let your guard down. The C ostco program is administered by a separate company from Costco that is licensed by C ostco to use their name. Tr ueCar is owned by a group of private investors and is new on the scene but are growing very rapidly. The auto buying services advise you or the dealer of the price you should pay for the car. But, you have to r emember that they dont come into the dealership with you when you actually purchase the car. Even though I dont recommend local car brokers, this is one advantage they have over national auto buying services. A broker will go into the dealership with you to assist you in the buying process or actually do the buying himself. If he is honest and his loyalty is to y ou, not the dealer, he can protect you from being tricked into paying more than you were told the price was. This is the biggest problem with national auto buyingAuto buying services can be a safer way to buy www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, October 18, 2013 Martin County A3 077576 www.Jewelrydesignstudio.netF riday,Nov. 8th 10am-7pm Saturday,Nov. 9th 10am-6pm 927 NEJensen Beach Blvd 772.334.2151 Monday Friday 10am 5pmSave the Date!A ward Winning DesignerDenny Wongfrom Hawaii 778406 POOL CONSTRUCTION, RENOVATION & REPAIRS!

FORT PIERCE Registration for Florida Atlantic Universitys annual Semester by the Sea program for undergraduate students studying marine biology will take place beginning Friday, Nov. 15 through Friday, Jan. 10, 2014. The program is scheduled to run Monday, Jan. 6 through Wednesday, April 30, 2014. Early registration is strongly recommended. S tudents from any college or university are welcome to apply. The SBTS program, based at FAUs Harbor Branch O ceanographic Institute in Fo rt Pierce, provides an unforgettable learning envir onment that couples small class sizes, hands-on lab instruction and intensive field studies in subtropical marine ecosystems. Study topics include: Subtropical biodiversity and ecology of seagrasses, r eefs, and mangroves Techniques and applications of molecular biology in marine systems Techniques integral to aquaculture of important species Fundamentals of physical and chemical oceanography The recommended program of study consists of three core courses and one elective course. The Ocean D iscovery course is also available and involves going to sea for several days for intensive studies. S BT S students have the opportunity to attain r esearch skills and knowledge that provide a strong foundation for a career in marine biology and for excelling in graduate programs, said Ed Proffitt, P h.D., FAU associate professor and SBTS program coordinator. Our students learn from and study with the best. FA U Harbor Branch faculty are leaders in their respective fields, which include marine mammals, oysters, aquaculture, coral, seagrass, mangroves, macroalgae, and marine natural products drug discovery. The FAU H arbor Branch research site is located on the shores of the Indian River Lagoon, one of the most biologically diverse estuaries in North America. During SBTS, students have the option of living on the FAU Harbor Br anch research site or staying off-campus in nearby Ve ro Beach or Fort Pierce. To begin the SBTS registration process,contact Ed Proffitt,Ph.D.,at cproffit@fau.edu. services. Every service will, or should, give you the name of the salesman in the dealership that administers their program. They usually have more than one person, and you should be sure that y ou deal only with their designated representative. Ne ver deal with anyone else at a car dealership except the designated member of that car buying service. Y ou should also know the auto-service quoted outthe-door price of the car yo u re buying before signing the papers or taking delivery. One of the reasons I like Tr ueCar.com is that they give y ou that price before you ever go into the dealership. C ostco does not give you the price but they require the car dealer to give you an official C ostco price sheet for the specific car youre buying. U nfortunately this doesnt always happen. My definition of an outthe-door price is one that excludes only government taxes and fees. All too often, the car dealers add their own fees which they variously r efer to as doc fees, dealer fee, prep fee, administrative fee, dealer handling fee, electronic filing fee, etc. Be sure that you read your auto buying services quoted price very carefully including the fine print. Another common trick by dealers is to add dealer installed accessories to the price quoted by the auto buying service. My advice is to never buy a dealer installed accessory, only factory installed. There are always exceptions to this but be very careful when making one. Dealer accessories are typically low cost items, virtually worthless with hugely inflated prices. E xamples are nitrogen in tires, paint sealant, fabric coat, pin stripes, VINs etched in glass, and roadside assistance. If you cannot get the dealer to agree to the price that was given you by the auto-buying service, leave the dealership, call your auto buying service, and report that dealer. Usually there are other dealers in your area who are also affiliated with the same buying service and they may recommend one of them. The auto buying service is paid by the dealer and that can be a problem. They have to keep the dealers happy so that they can make money. They like to keep the car buyers happy so that they will come back and tell their friends. The wise auto-buying service will r ealize that the best long term strategy is to put the car buyer over the dealer. The auto buying services first loyalty should be to the car buyer, not the dealer. This means that services should police their dealers and cull out those dealers who try to take advantage of car buyers by raising the agreed upon prices. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, October 18, 2013 Martin County A5 077577 Arrests listed were made Oct. 4-11.Stuart Police Department Jeremy Manord, 25, of 2761 Normand Street, Stuart, was charged with grand theft.

It happens to every computer user eventually that dreaded call to tech support. This week, I will share some tips that can make that inevitable call to tech support go smoothly. The first question that you have to ask yourself is: "Who are you going to call?" That answer depends on the issues y ou are having. F or instance, if you are having Internet connection issues, you may want to call y our Internet provider (AT&T, C omcast, Road Runner, or whoever you are using to connect to the Internet). If you are having hardware issues, such as problems accessing a printer or other device, you may need to contact support for that device. F or problems with your operating system (Windows won't load, etc.), a call to M icrosoft's tech support may be in order. If you are having problems with the computer itself (getting errors or beep codes as soon as you turn it on), you may want to call the manufacturer of the computer. That's a lot of decisions to make even before making the call, but you need to be clear about the nature of the problem. Answering these questions beforehand will help clarify your issues before y ou make the call. Also, don't forget the warranty. Some devices may carry warranties that last y ears. It would be frustrating to fix or replace a device only to find out you could have had it fixed under warranty. Once you're clear on whom to call and why, sit in front of the computer when you make the call. There is little that any phone support technician can do for you if y ou are not sitting in front of the machine. You have to be his "eyes and ears" so make sure when you call for help, y ou are at your computer. After spending some time on hold, (nothing I can help with there) you will finally get someone on the line. R emember: This person is new to your issue and has no idea what you have or have not tried yet. He's going to ask you questions and perhaps have you click some things. Ev en if he is having you click something you have already clicked, comments such as, "I already tried that," don't help. He hasn't tried anything yet and needs to start somewhere. Also keep in mind that even if your tech support person has a thick accent, he probably does this type of thing 40 hours a week and knows exactly what he's looking for. When he asks you to click something and you don't immediately see it, don't instantly reply with, "I don't have that." Do a thorough scan of all of the icons in whatever screen you are looking in and make sure. N ine times out of 10, you'll find it. F ollow the directions the support person gives you, and try not to get distracted by all the other stuff that will pop up on the way. Stay focused on his or her instructions and you'll usually get through most issues quickly and without too much frustration. H opefully, you won't have to make that call, but when y ou do, having as much information in front of you will help. Things such as any specific error messages that may be popping up, what you we re doing when the problem occurred and so on. This information is invaluable to the tech support person on the other end of the phone. If you have a "quick question," great. Just remember that 99 percent of all tech support calls are just quick questions. It's the answer that can drag on for hours. So how did I come up with this week's subject matter? We ll, Ive been doing remote computer support over the phone for more than 15 years and often spend up to 40 hours a week on the phone helping people walk through their computer issues. I still fix computers and over the y ears I found that the calls that go quickest are the ones where the caller is at least a little prepared, in front of the computer when they call and follow my instructions precisely without getting distracted along the way.

The Common Core Standards have been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. Governor Scott has been a supporter for three y ears, but now states he supports the standards but not the test. State Representative Debbie Mayfield has proposed a bill, (HB25), requiring more extensive public hearings and cost analysis for implementing the standards. The establishment of national standards and a national test is the BEST way to prepare students in the United S tates. For too long, students have been evaluated by state tests. The performance on a state test does not show how well educated the Florida students are in comparison to students throughout the country. For the Governor to say he supports the Common Co re S tandards but not the national test is counter-productive. How ever, I can understand the Governors wanting to create a state test using the Common Core Objectives. F or years, the Florida legislators have operated the educational system on the cheap. Upon Governor Scott being elected, he reduced the education budget by $1 billion dollars. To use a state produced test will create the r esults the legislators want the public to see curve the results any way you want. The students in Florida deserve a good education built upon the Common Core Standards and national testing. The states collectively will be creating the national test; it will not be the federal government. Only then will the students of Florida really understand how they are performing when matched with students throughout the U nited States. Florida is famous for producing some of the best high school football teams and marching bands. Now is the time for Florida to produce the best students in the United States. R ay Hoffman Po rt St .L ucie Credit card scammersNo it's not Halloween yet. I had my debit card number stolen at Walmart last Tuesday and somebody cleaned out my bank account! All is back to normal now, money back in account, new debit card, went to the bank yesterday morning and they had taken care of it. For tunately I had checked my bank account Wed. night (within the 48 hour period you're allowed to report unauthoriz ed transactions) so a man at the customer service line which is open 24/7 was able to file a dispute and stop the transaction for me; all the money was replaced by Friday morning, thank goodness. I was using the new "Self-service" machine, they just put them in a month or so ago and the first time I used it I was delighted, it saves standing in long lines, etc. The second time I used it, not so good! I'd put money from my debit card on a shopping card to buy gas, so I could save three cents a gallon. Not much of a savings when somebody rips off your debit card number and uses it online to buy hundreds of dollars worth of stuff. So be careful. Christmas is around the corner and the scammers are out there looking for little ole ladies who don't look like they know enough to check their bank accounts on line every day.Cant feel safeThere are so many things to worry about these days. There are so many crimes being committed by young and old alike. Its impossible to feel safe leaving your windows open or going for a walk in the evening time. Its as if we live in a time in which we must carry a stick or worse, a gun, to feel safe. Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and Dish N etwork programming. These are old technology and old money-making schemes, and we are bombarded with commercial after commercial, with little entertainment, unlike the good old days, when each and every program had at least one sponsor, we now have as many as 10 or more 30-second annoying commercials. Why not have these satellite programs on the new digital side channels of the local T.V. stations? That would be as close to ala carte programming as possible. The religious and Latino channels are already enjoying the r iches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Bravo, HBO, etc. Cable TV, Dish network and Direct TV are expensive for the amount of real entertainment. The massive doses of commercials are negating the entire entertainment process. Using digital channels will also spread the profits around to our local affiliates and, as a result, our local governments will benefit more. I am aware that these networks especially cable TV pay hefty fees for use of the local utilities, but new taxes are being discovered all the time, so why not from digital TV instead of satellite TV programming?Stop for busesC orrect me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a law to stop when a school bus is flashing its lights and slowing down to stop? Don't drivers realize that means a child is near and about to walk to get on that bus? That child could be coming in any direction. Drivers be aware. There have been too many tragedies already because cars/trucks do not stop. I take my granddaughter to her bus stop at 7 a.m. I have had to jump from my car and stand in the middle of the street waving my arms as my granddaughter crossed the street to board her school bus. Only then do they start slowing down. W ake up, drivers, before you get behind the wheel in the morning. It's the law: stop.F ood stamp run aroundI have a rant about our state's assistance programs. I have had to apply for food stamps since having to stop working due to injuries sustained from a car accident. Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very user-friendly and easier in the long run for all involved. Well, I don't feel that way at all. I applied for food stamps and temporary cash assistance due to the fact that I have no income and have a child and the child support that I do get is very sporadic. (I am thankful that I do receive it when I do.) I couldn't apply online and had to phone in. I had them send me the application in the mail and then when I received it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I received my letter from DCF. I used a friends fax machine, because I couldn't afford to use a professional one that charged $1 a page, much less I don't have use of my car due to no insurance or an up-to-date registration. I waited 15 days, like the lady had said, for expedited food stamps. I called many times after the 15 days were up, trying to get an answer only to be hung up on several times due to too many lines being used. After 30 days of not hearing from them again, by mail, I w ent online, since they had an updated website for applicants and found that I "chose not to apply." I wanted to pull every last hair out of my head. I had to repeat the process all ov er again. In between, I've had friends drive me to the Salvation Army and a few other small food banks so as to not starve. After applying for the expedited food stamps online, where they take your information and just believe it for now, kind of thing, I finally got some help, 35 days later, of $150 for one month, of expedited food stamps. I still had to fax in my proof paperwork again and this would be for the next six months. I could see online how much they already allotted to us and was quite excited that we would be able to eat every day, much less three times a day. This time a friend took me to a professional fax and paid the $9 for my fax usage. I have been waiting 22 days for this months allotment of food stamps. I have called DCF three times and got through: once a lady told me that yes, my food stamp allotment was approved, it would be available in 24 hours. The second time a lady said that she didn't know what the holdup was, that it looked like they were just processing it and I would have to wait for the social worker to approve it and they would send a letter. For some reason, the system isn't working for my case even though I have no income and was diligent in getting all my proof of income and bills into the Got something to say?

DCF office. The third time I called, I asked if there was anything they were waiting on and was told no and I had to wait for my social worker to approve it. I was told I can't ask for my social worker by name for some reason and no one seems to know what's going on. The website tells me how much is allotted to us and we can't get it. I don't understand. Why we are waiting so long? Especially when we were allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted.

Ma r tin County is committed to finding viable ways to improve water quality within our watershed, including the use of innovative and alternative treatment technologies. The latest example of the C ounty's effort to improve our water quality can be found in floating wetlands, called Beemats, recently deployed in an Old Palm City stormwater treatment area. A STA captures, cleans and stores water before it flows into our local waterways. B eemats is a patented system which uses a cell foam mat to float aquatic plants in bodies of water for the purpose of removing pollutants. Testing has demonstrated the mats r educe the harmful nutrients, nitrogen and phosphorus, as much as 40-50 percent. B eemats are manufactured in New Smyrna B each. The County has purchased 11 Beemats totaling 3,667 square feet, or about 8,440 plants. "We just placed eleven mats into our existing STA to determine if they can work for us to both clean up water and are reasonable to maintain," said Deb Dr um, Martin County Environmental Quality M anager. "We are pleased to be working with a sustainable, made in Florida product that can be reused and r ecycled." After the plants have done their job, they are r emoved and can be composted or the majority of r oots can be removed, the plant split up into smaller plants and returned to the mat or plants can be planted in other stormwater treatment areas that need vegetation. Once removed, the mats (and all the other hard materials that go into our system) can be replanted and reused year after y ear. HOBE SOUND Hobe S ound Animal Protection League received news of a donation from the Pegasus F oundation of $100,000 to support HSAPLs capital campaign, Paws Forward: N ew Quarters for Cats. The campaign was launched to acquire a new site to house HSAPLs feline sanctuary. HSAPL currently resides at Ca r ing Fields in Palm City, a 23-acre sanctuary owned by the Pegasus Foundation. P egasus founders Charles and Barbara Birdsey created the sanctuary to house fledging animal rescue and environmental organizations. After spending over ten years here, HSAPL, a nokill feline rescue and adoption group, is ready to find property of its own. The donation by the Pegasus Foundation is the second donation of $100,000 which HSAPL has received since launching its Paws Fo rw ard campaign in midA ugust. The first donation was made by an anonymous donor. The campaign has r aised $246,520 to-date in donations and pledges towards the goal of $500,000. In addition to funding the purchase of the property, the campaign money will also be used to relocate buildings, as well as over 150 cats that live at the sanctuary.

The park is now called Legoland and it has something to offer for all ages. U pon first entering the park, y ou are greeted by an array of colorful animal figures made from Lego bricks. In fact, most everything you see is made from colorful Legos throughout the park. If y ou have been there when it was Cypress Gardens, y ou will recognize many of the buildings and landmarks. In the center of the park instead of topiaries and plant gardens, you will find miniature cities all made from Legos. It is highly detailed and amazing to look at. You will need quite a bit of time to explore this part of the park. As you move deeper into the park, you will see the allfamiliar waterfall with all the landscaping just as it was in the old park. The landscaping is amazing with a varied collection of tropical and native plants surrounding the water fall. It is truly an amazing sight. If y ou follow the park all the way to the end, you will hit the pot of gold. This is where the original Cypress Gardens botanical garden is located. It is worth the price of admission just to see these gardens. The botanical gardens abound with plant species from both native to varieties from all corners of the globe. The garden paths are clean and the gardens are all welltrimmed and manicured. While on your stroll, be sure to have your picture taken at the historic gazebo. Also, be sure to spend some time at the old Banyan tree that is in the center of the gardens. After leaving the gardens, be sure to see the ski show. Although themed different from the original, it is truly entertaining to see. T oday I want to talk about a couple of the plants that I encountered on the tour that has a very interesting background. The first is a plant called the Travelers P alm. The Travelers Palm (ravenala madagascariensis) is actually not a palm at all. This plant is a member of the bird-of-paradise family. In fact, looking at the plant from a distance, it is very difficult to tell them apart. This plant has a very interesting history. B ack in the explorer days, this plant actually was a source of water for travelers, hence the name travelers palm. The stems hold rainwater that can be used as an emergency drinking supply. Each stem can hold as much as a pint of water. I ts huge paddle shaped leaves that indeed have both a tropical and a majestic appearance characterizes the plant. Travelers Palm is a very easy to grow plant choice and can really offer a distinct tropical look to any landscape. The plant requires a fairly sunny location and should be planted so the shape of the plant goes from east to west. I was not able to do that with mine but the plant is still thriving beautifully. They r equire moderate water but once well-established they are very easy to maintain. The main maintenance issue with this plant would be trimming off the dry and/or broken branches. Although quite hardy, they can be damaged in high winds or hard freeze conditions. My plant has been through both and has recovered every time. Y ou can fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer during the summer growing season if desired. This will help to keep the dark green leaf color and aid in faster plant growth. These plants are available at many local nurseries. The next plant I would like to mention is a variety known as the Song of India. The S ong of India is a tropical plant that has long narrow leaves that have green centers with a creamy yellow edge. The plant can grow up to four feet high. This plant is often used as an indoor tropical but can also be planted outdoors in a tropical garden or on a deck or patio in a pot. Song of I ndia requires bright light but will burn if placed in all day direct sun. The plant is easy to grow and only requires small amounts of water. They do not like their feet to be soaking wet. Since the plant loves humidity, it grows quite w ell in our area. This plant is widely available at many local nurseries.

member of the Childrens Se r vices Council of Martin C ounty. That gave me a running start, Mr. Ranieri said. Mr. Ranieri believes wholeheartedly in what the area clubs are doing and hopes to continue to build on what theyve already accomplished and elevate the programs to a whole new level. I love the organization and the mission, Mr. R anieri said. They literally change lives. He hopes to improve the clubs reach in the community, serving more families, supplying more kids with the opportunities the clubs offer, and raising more money to support those programs. Mr. Ranieri is especially excited about the new education program that is being implemented in all the Martin County clubs this year and will be focusing his energy and effort on it and all of the other club programs. I want to be there to help the kids in the community reach their full potential, he said. He s truly looking forward to his new position and using his wealth of experience to further BGCMCs mission. Early Learning Coalition rolls out new format for board member orientationTREASURE COAST Early Learning Coalition of I ndian River, Martin and O keechobee County held its board member orientation in September. F or the first time, ELC incorporated tours of two child centers in each county, allowing new members and guests the opportunity to observe the child care setting where they discussed capacity, curriculum, state regulations, and developmentally appropriate activities. "This gave board members the opportunity to better understand the important learning activities that our children experience while attending preschool," said Jacki Jackson, CEO/executive director of ELC. In Ma r tin County, board members visited Apple Tree A cademy and Pebble Stone A cademy, both in Stuart, where they got a first-hand view of ELCs mission in partnering with parents, providers and communities to ensure quality early learning experiences through programmatic and financial support. In Indian River County, board members visited Little Rising Stars and St. Peters Child Development Center both in Vero Beach, while O keechobee board members visited Rock Solid Christian Academy and Little Peoples Academy. N ew member Deborah Schooley is thrilled to be elected for the board. As o wner of Tender Care, an early childhood education facility located in Okeechobee, I can use my exper ience to bring different points of view to the board, Ms. Schooley said. I started Tender Care back in 1990 and I will be able to provide insight on what it takes to r un an early learning facility and use my experience to better serve ELC. This years 19 board members make up a diverse group of business and community leaders. Among 19 are nine new members; the board chair Brandon Tucker, Cathleen Blair, Ann H olmes, John Locke, Terri Ma r der, Lison Philor-Jonnassaint, Deborah Schooley, Kim McCorrison, and Lisa Giessert. Together this board will set priorities that are relevant to the children and families in the communities ELC serves. The Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee Counties is responsible for the planning and implementation of school readiness and voluntary pre-kindergarten services in the three county area. The Coalition is re sponsible for making decisions to meet the early education and child care needs of the children in our communities. The chair and two other board members are governor-appointed. In addition to providing financial assistance for families, ELC offers support, training and resources to community providers who serve approximately 5,000 children daily through the School Readiness, Voluntary Prekindergarten Education programs and Resource & Referral programs.

MARTIN COUNTY N estled away in the Kanner Crossings Plaza in Stuart is one of the areas best kept secrets. R oma Pizzeria and R estaurant has been serving Pizza and pastries on the Treasure Coast for more than 40 years. The S tuart location is new to the area, but with the quality of food they are serving, they are soon to be a local favorite. W e ve only been here since the beginning of J une, said Chris Chlopek, o wner and chef. Lots of people are familiar with our pizza and garlic knots, but were really trying to serve a dinner menu as w ell. The homemade food is fresh and cooked to order. Theres a lot of love that goes into every meal. Mr. Chlopek invited us to sit back, enjoy the quaint environment and sample many of the dishes he serves. With the help of an experienced right-hand man behind the scenes, they produced some of the most delightful Italian dishes Ive had eat pleasure of eating. My guest and I were served a Caesar salad made with fresh Romaine lettuce and a large helping of garlic knots. W e dont serve iceberg lettuce, Mr. Chlopek said. Romaine is much tastier and really brings out the flavor of the other ingredients. The garlic knots were the flawless combination of parmesan cheese, garlic and butter. I dont know if Ive ever had a more perfect knot. As my guest and I enjoyed our appetizer, Mr. Chlopek asked us to make r oom for the entres. He brought out an incredible array of homemade Italian goodness that would make anyones mouth water. Fr om Zuppa Di Mussels served over linguini with a tomato sauce, to incredible calms to penne alla vodka and chicken Francese, the r estaurant serves it all. The chicken and eggplant parmigiana was cooked to perfection as was the chicken marsala and sausage and meatballs. Each dish was prepared and served in a timely manner and left us anticipating a return to the r estaurant.By Anna-Marie Menhenottnews@hometownnewsol.com Pineapple Festival to take over downtown area JENSEN BEACH A B ahamian marketplace will line the streets, carnival rides will light up the sky and more bands than ever before will thrill festivalgoers from near and far during this y ears Pineapple Festival in Jensen Beach.

Perfect weather to go catch a fish Cool mornings, warm days, polite water, what else can I say? I love this place. Theres still plenty of bait both inshore and off, and lots of fish, so lets why not get one or two? The mornings have been the best time at the surfs edge. Theres plenty of bait and plenty of fish. This weeks catch list was long with blues, macs, jacks, snook, tarpon, whiting and spinners making the cut. Theres a lot of fish from most locations, only difference has been the time that theyre biting, but theres fish all day. It s an early bite for most, but watch the surf and tide, they make a difference. The only constant has been the spinner sharks with an appearance late afternoon through the evening time. The best part is they are all in casting range. If it looks like a mullet and has flash about it, cast and hang on. Whiting have been up close but be careful, the jacks will come just as close, difference being the jacks will take your equipment home with them. I didnt hear a lot about tarpon this week and I am not sure if the anglers are tired or the bulk of the fish have moved on. How many days can you get beat by a fish before you say this is a y oung mans sport? An eight-foot rod combo with a 3/4-oz spoon and you are r eady, so, come on down. River anglers are just buying bait not asking where to go and that tells me there are plenty of fish. Lots of big jacks and blues are cruising the river and neither are picky eaters so, K ayak anglers beware. Theres still plenty of top of the slot reds and trout from County line road north, east or west side, and early is best. But, we have had reports of all day biting with live bait or artificial bait bringing them in. I guess the fish are hungry. Theres still tarpon rolling out there, theres just no y oung anglers to play with. The snook have been big. J ust pick a bridge after sun down and remember, please do not bring a knife to a gun fight. Bridges have all of the above plus black drum and snapper, even a few pompano made the list. It makes it hard to pick a best-bet spot. Off shore is still about the same as last week with small dolphin on the top of the list. Anglers report plenty in 70feet, just north of the inlet pitching live baits. Now why no one has put bigger bait down to see why these fish are staying up, I am just not sure. B ig dolphin eat little dolphin, so if they are on top, why would be a good question. Theres some bigger fish at the 150-foot mark and that is where the black fins start, so if you put bait in, chances are the fins will be first. Troll bigger bait and see if that works. There have been a few sails in the mix, but the unusual has been the S panish macs just north of the inlet. Theres enough out there that a few commercial anglers are taking early advantage. N ice weather, no rain and an evening breeze, I love this place. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

Course offers tremendous golf, staffIf I had to call a course my home course, Hammock Cr eek in Palm City would likely be my choice. The club sponsored my weekly golf r adio show for several years, and I enjoyed a round at the course several times a month for quite some time. I know the course almost as well as the back of my hand. H ammock Creek, located within a mile of Florida's Tur npike and also I-95, originally opened in 1995. The course was the first designed by the father-son team of Jack N icklaus and Jack Nicklaus II and quickly became one of the finest daily fee courses in the area. It was also home to the Golden Bear Tour, hosted many mini tours, U.S. Open Q ualifying, and even hosted the Taste of Martin County. Those who have played H ammock Creek know it for its expansive fairways, large greens, variety of holes and friendly staff. The course is also tops with many lady golfers as it features few forced carries and greens complexes that allow for many different shots around the green. This past summer Hammock Creek closed from early J une until just this past week to upgrade the greens with new Tiff Eagle grass, improve drainage, and a few more tweaks. On the course, golfers who have played here before will find just a few changes other than the recently improved greens. The most obvious is the newly paved cart paths. Fr om the first tee all the way to the 18th green, the paths have been fixed and repaved. I t's a nice smooth ride the whole way around. The other changes come from clearing out or thinning palmettos, knocking down tall grass and previously unkempt areas to keep golfers from having a blind tee shot. The area behind the third green is one such place. Used to be if you hit your approach long, the ball would tumble across the cart path and simply disappear in tall weeds and palmettos. That area has been cleaned out and you now have a good 10 feet for y our ball to settle. The areas directly in front of the fifth and seventh tees have also been cleaned up and knocked down, allowing golfers an unimpeded view of the fairway. The cart path on number five no longer backtracks toward the fairway before heading over to the sixth tee, making for a safer environment when the group behind you is ready to hit their second shots. H ammock Creek has five sets of tees playing from just ov er 5,000yards up to 7,119yards. The course is usually set up to play hard and fast, giving your drives some extra distance. There is also plenty of room to hit driver on almost every hole. There are few nasty bunkers to avoid, but most wont ruin your day should you find them. F inally, what you've been waiting to hear about: the greens. They are, to put it mildly, wonderful. Every putt I hit rolled smoothly and predictably. They are firm and fast, and should only get better as they mature. The design of each appears to be almost exactly as it was before. No strange bumps or false fronts have been slipped in on us. It truly is like going back home. Fo r more information,visit www.hammockcreekgolfclub.com or call (772) 2202599. Contact James Stammer at stammergolf@yahoo.com.

TREASURE COAST The inaugural Twilight Honor Flight 5K on No v. 1 is about more than participants rushing to the finish line amid aerial acrobatics and fireworks, decked out in red, white and blue glow gear as they race around all of the air show festivities. It 's about raising money and voices to grant America's veterans what they've longed for years to see. The fundraising 5K takes place at W itham Airport right after the N ational Anthem at the Stuart Air Sh ow and benefits Honor Flight, an organization that flies World W ar II veterans to Washington D.C. to see the World War II monument. B ut with the recent government shutdown, the monument, along with many other attractions, has been closed to the public. So in an effort to ensure those who served get to see the memorial erected in their honor, not only will race registration proceeds benefit honor flight, but Fair Wind Air Charter, who is sponsoring the r ace, is asking participants to write to politicians asking for the barricades to be lowered. The memorial was built in their honor and having them stand outside the gates is just a disgrace," said Alex Beringer, executive vice president at Fair Wind Air Charter. No one is certain whether or not the barricades will be open when the next group of area veterans arrive on Oct. 19, but the trip is still on. What Mr. Beringer and so many others are hoping is that so many people appeal to their congressmen, senators, and even the president, that the politicians will r eopen the memorial to the public. The corporation has even gone as far as providing links on their w ebsite with contact information for those politicians to make it as easy as possible for the community to email or send Facebook and Familiar face takes over helm at nonprofit MARTIN COUNTY The new Chief Operating Officer for Boys and Girls Clubs of Martin County has experience to spare and can't wait to put it to good use furthering the mission of the organization in the community.

He has also been the Di r ector of Operations for Sodasystems and president, owner and operator of Kare Pr o, a local car wash chain. "I have a pretty wide range of exper ience," Mr. Ranieri said. Experience he expects to utilize in staff development, safety, facilities management, even fundraising. "W e' re lucky to have him," said D avid Vaina, communications director for BGCMC. "W e think he can make our organization a lot more efficient."

In an effort to eliminate bullying of any kind, the district will present "Martin Stands UpAgainst B ullying!" It will be a free, informative, and highly entertaining presentation by K eith Deltano, a public speaker and educational comedian whose goal is not to lecture, but entertain. "H e has real knack for being able to connect with students," said Michele B lanco, Public Information Specialist for Martin Coun ty Schools. Mr. Deltano's goal is to r eally get to the heart of the issue, going beyond explaining why bullying is harmful to enlighten students as to why bullies do what they do. He takes a serious subject and uses the guise of comedy to create a lesson that teenagers can not only learn from, but actually enjoy. What a great concept," Ms. Blanco said. Fo r tunately, Martin C ounty Schools haven't experienced the level of bullying that many other areas of the state and country have, but Ms. B lanco said the plan is to keep it that way, hence the proactive presentation. "I t' s important to engage and communicate with the students as to why this is important," Ms. Blanco said. Mr. Deltano will begin his presentation at 7 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the Jensen B each High School auditori um where students from grades 5-12 and their parents are invited to attend. After he gets the audience laughing and taking a long, hard, introspective look at themselves, there will be a dessert reception with Superintendent Lau-See S CHOOLS, A2Area veterans to benefit from inaugural twilight run Nov. 1 See KNOW, A7 Rob RanieriBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See H ELM, A9By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsHit em high,hit em low See TW I LIGHT, A2 Y es, We Do Deliver!

"K eep it polite and keep it respectful, but let your opinions be known," Mr. Be r inger said. "I'm hoping a lot of people reach out to their leadership."

Massey, President of Indian River State College, has been selected from more than 1,200 state and community college presidents nationwide to receive the Association of Community C ollege Trustees highest CEO award. The 2013 Marie Y. Martin Chief Executive Officer A ward was presented to Dr. Ma ssey in front of a standing-room-only crowd of more than 2,000 college trustees and presidents on O ct. 4 at the National ACCT Leadership Conference in S eattle. H onored for his exceptional leadership, talent for translating vision into action and strong record of accomplishments, Dr. Massey was previously named the S outhern Regional CEO of the Year, which qualified him as one of five regional finalists for the national award. A ccepting the national award on behalf of "the entire Indian River State College family," Dr. Massey credited "the dedication of the College faculty and staff, great students, sound direction by the Board of Trustees, and tremendous community support for IRSC's achievements." "W e have an outstanding team, and attaining this level of national stature is absolutely due to the combined efforts and contributions of all those committed to the College's success," Dr. Ma ssey said. IRSC Board of Trustees members Werner Bols, Chairman, of Stuart, and J ose' Conrado, of Vero Beach, we re present at the ACCT Leadership Conference when the award was announced. "We couldn't be more proud," Mr. Bols csaid. "This recognition of Dr Massey is exceptionally w ell-deserved." "O ne of the hallmarks of Dr Massey's presidency is his intense commitment to community needs, building numerous collaborative partnerships at the local, state and national levels to foster economic and workforce development," Mr. B ols said. "Under his leadership, IRSC has become a nationally respected, highperforming institution with far-reaching benefits for the Tr easure Coast and our students. In recognition of Dr. M assey's dedication to excellence and world-class r esults, the IRSC Board whole-heartedly commends and congratulates him." Dr Massey was appointed IRSC's third president and CEO in 1988, and his tenure in office has been marked by a legacy of exceptional accomplishments. Examples include: E xpanding enrollment by 300 percent in over 130 D egree and Certificate programs. S ignificantly expanding the College's five campuses to include over 700 acres and 1.5 million square feet of state-of-the-art educational facilities. Leading the College's transition from Indian River C ommunity College to Indian River State College, expanding the College mission to become a Baccalaur eate degree-granting institution, and establishing 23 new Bachelor's Degree programs linked directly to r egional workforce needs. A chieving national rankings for IRSC as the 10th best college in the Southern R egion by U.S. News & World R eport and 4th most affordable college by the U.S. D epartment of Education. I ncreasing Foundation assets by more than 900 percent and raising funds to support student scholarship awards of $3.3 million annually. S ecuring more than $90 million in local, state and national grant awards over the past ten years for projects ranging from the highly successful Regional Center for Nuclear Education and Tr aining to the new Lasers and Fiber Optics Regional E ducation Center. S upporting high-quality instruction as evidenced by the fact that IRSC consistently ranks Number 1 among the 28 Florida College System institutions in the percent of budget dedicated directly to instruction, and lowest among FCS institutions in administrative costs. Ensuring an exemplary fiscal audit history for over 25 years. Dr Massey, an Indian River County resident, was first employed by the College as a biology professor in 1973 and promoted to several administrative positions prior to becoming president in 1988. He serves on many local, state, and national boards and is frequently called upon to present on higher education topics and issues at national conferences and forums, including a meeting of prominent educational and industry leaders at the White House in W ashington D.C. last year.

MARTIN COUNTY The B usiness Development Board of Martin County received two Silver Awards for Excellence in Economic Development from the International E conomic Development C ouncil. The first award was for their Ma r tin County "Board MeetingsDon't Have To Be Boring" ad campaign for communities with populations of 25,000 200,000. The BDBMC also received an award in the S pecial Purpose Website Category for its newly designed www.yesmartinfl.com site. The honor was presented today during the IEDC Annual Conference, currently being held in Philadelphia. The Excellence in Economic Development Awards r ecognizes the Business De velopment Board of Martin C ounty as being one of the leading organizations in the industry for innovation, creativity and successful strategies," said Paul Krutko, IEDC chair. "These awards are meant to honor the organizations and individuals who are dedicated to making a positive change in their communities. This organization uses creative solutions and inventive ideas, and offers other r egions a wonderful example to learn and benefit from. The award represents an acknowledgment and appreciation for the Business Development B oard of Martin County's dedication to continuous growth within itself, as well as improving the industry overall." The idea for the advertising campaign was developed in house at the BDBMC and utilized actual Martin County CEO's for a mock board meeting on Stuart Beach. The BDBMC was also recognized with an Award of Excellence earlier in the year from the S outhern Economic Development Council for the same ad campaign. "Being recognized internationally by your peers is an honor for the BDBMC and Martin County," said Tim Dougher, Executive Director, BDBMC. "We have a great team at the BDBMC and look forward to continuing to enhance our economic development efforts," Mr. Dougher said. The second award was for the BDBMC's newly designed and interactive website www.yesmartinfl.com This new website is geared primar ily for existing companies in Ma r tin County looking to expand operations and in need of space and demographic research. It is also a huge resource for executives outside of Martin County to educate them on the area and get acquainted with the attributes of the area. The Excellence in Economic Development Awards Program annually recognizes the world's best economic development programs and partnerships, marketing materials, and the year's most influential leaders. The program honors organizations and individuals in 28 categories for their efforts in creating positive change in urban, suburban, and rural communities.

Y ou may be familiar with A utoTrader.com, A utoByTel.com, Cars.com, C ostco, Sam's Warehouse, and TrueCar.com. There are thousands of local, private brokers who will buy a car for y ou for a fee. There are also a lot of other organizations that provide auto buying services for their members. AAA, American Express, Consumer R eports, PenFed, Nationwide, GEICO, USAA are just a few. The first thing to remember is that all auto buying services are in the business to make a profit. They are all middle men" that you and/or the dealers pay fees to. Paying a fee raises the cost of the car to the dealer. That means that if you are a shrewd negotiator who really does their homework you should be able to buy a car for as low a price as any auto buying service and save the cost of the fee. R ealistically, very few people are that good at negotiating. Remember that car salesmen and managers are professional negotiators. This brings to mind the old joke"When you sit down at a poker game and look all around the table but don't see a sucker. You're the sucker!" B esides lacking professional negotiation skills, few people have the "thick skin" to be able to deal with the gameplaying and insulting shenanigans of car salesmen and their managers. In addition to the "pain" of buying a car is the inordinate amount of time it can take. I consider local, individual brokers as being the least efficient and trustworthy of all auto buying services. Most auto brokers are ex car salesmen. They charge you a fee and they often charge the dealer a fee too. A private broker's fee is usually much higher than a national auto buying services. At my dealership I've paid brokers several thousand dollars to his customer and had to charge a lot more for the car than if the customer had come to me directly. The broker probably charged the customer a fee too. There are a few brokers who are trustworthy and won't gouge their customers, but they are few and far between. As far as all of the national buying services, it's still "buyer beware." My two favorites are TrueCar.com and Costco, but even with these two you should never let your guard down. The C ostco program is administered by a separate company from Costco that is licensed by C ostco to use their name. Tr ueCar is owned by a group of private investors and is new on the scene but are growing very rapidly. The auto buying services advise you or the dealer of the price you should pay for the car. But, you have to r emember that they don't come into the dealership with you when you actually purchase the car. Even though I don't recommend local car brokers, this is one advantage they have over national auto buying services. A broker will go into the dealership with you to assist you in the buying process or actually do the buying himself. If he is honest and his loyalty is to y ou, not the dealer, he can protect you from being tricked into paying more than you were told the price was. This is the biggest problem with national auto buyingAuto buying services can be a safer way to buy www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, October 18, 2013 Martin County A3 077576www.Jewelrydesignstudio.netF riday,Nov. 8th 10am-7pm Saturday,Nov. 9th 10am-6pm 927 NEJensen Beach Blvd € 772.334.2151 Monday Friday € 10am 5pmSave the Date!A ward Winning DesignerDenny Wongfrom Hawaii 778406 POOL CONSTRUCTION, POOL CONSTRUCTION, RENOVATION & REPAIRS!

Y ou should also know the auto-service quoted outthe-door price of the car yo u' re buying before signing the papers or taking delivery. One of the reasons I like Tr ueCar.com is that they give y ou that price before you ever go into the dealership. C ostco does not give you the price but they require the car dealer to give you an official C ostco price sheet for the specific car you're buying. U nfortunately this doesn't always happen. My definition of an "outthe-door price" is one that excludes only government taxes and fees. All too often, the car dealers add their own fees which they variously r efer to as doc fees, dealer fee, prep fee, administrative fee, dealer handling fee, electronic filing fee, etc. Be sure that you read your auto buying services quoted price very carefully including the fine print. Another common trick by dealers is to add "dealer installed accessories" to the price quoted by the auto buying service. My advice is to never buy a dealer installed accessory, only factory installed. There are always exceptions to this but be very careful when making one. Dealer accessories are typically low cost items, virtually worthless with hugely inflated prices. E xamples are nitrogen in tires, paint sealant, fabric coat, pin stripes, VIN's etched in glass, and roadside assistance. If y ou cannot get the dealer to agree to the price that was given you by the auto-buying service, leave the dealership, call your auto buying service, and report that dealer. Usually there are other dealers in your area who are also affiliated with the same buying service and they may recommend one of them. The auto buying service is paid by the dealer and that can be a problem. They have to keep the dealers happy so that they can make money. They like to keep the car buyers happy so that they will come back and tell their friends. The wise auto-buying service will r ealize that the best long term strategy is to put the car buyer over the dealer. The auto buying service's first loyalty should be to the car buyer, not the dealer. This means that services should police their dealers and cull out those dealers who try to take advantage of car buyers by raising the agreed upon prices. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, October 18, 2013 Martin County A5 077577 Arrests listed were made Oct. 4-11.Stuart Police Department Jeremy Manord, 25, of 2761 Normand Street, Stuart, was charged with grand theft.

It happens to every computer user eventually that dreaded call to tech support. This week, I will share some tips that can make that inevitable call to tech support go smoothly. The first question that you have to ask yourself is: "Who are you going to call?" That answer depends on the issues y ou are having. F or instance, if you are having Internet connection issues, you may want to call y our Internet provider (AT&T, C omcast, Road Runner, or whoever you are using to connect to the Internet). If y ou are having hardware issues, such as problems accessing a printer or other device, you may need to contact support for that device. F or problems with your operating system (Windows won't load, etc.), a call to M icrosoft's tech support may be in order. If y ou are having problems with the computer itself (getting errors or beep codes as soon as you turn it on), you may want to call the manufacturer of the computer. That's a lot of decisions to make even before making the call, but you need to be clear about the nature of the problem. Answering these questions beforehand will help clarify your issues before y ou make the call. Also, don't forget the warranty. Some devices may carry warranties that last y ears. It would be frustrating to fix or replace a device only to find out you could have had it fixed under warranty. Once you're clear on whom to call and why, sit in front of the computer when you make the call. There is little that any phone support technician can do for you if y ou are not sitting in front of the machine. You have to be his "eyes and ears" so make sure when you call for help, y ou are at your computer. After spending some time on hold, (nothing I can help with there) you will finally get someone on the line. R emember: This person is new to your issue and has no idea what you have or have not tried yet. He's going to ask you questions and perhaps have you click some things. Ev en if he is having you click something you have already clicked, comments such as, "I already tried that," don't help. He hasn't tried anything yet and needs to start somewhere. Also keep in mind that even if your tech support person has a thick accent, he probably does this type of thing 40 hours a week and knows exactly what he's looking for. When he asks you to click something and you don't immediately see it, don't instantly reply with, "I don't have that." Do a thorough scan of all of the icons in whatever screen you are looking in and make sure. N ine times out of 10, you'll find it. F ollow the directions the support person gives you, and try not to get distracted by all the other stuff that will pop up on the way. Stay focused on his or her instructions and you'll usually get through most issues quickly and without too much frustration. H opefully, you won't have to make that call, but when y ou do, having as much information in front of you will help. Things such as any specific error messages that may be popping up, what you we re doing when the problem occurred and so on. This information is invaluable to the tech support person on the other end of the phone. If y ou have a "quick question," great. Just remember that 99 percent of all tech support calls are just quick questions. It's the answer that can drag on for hours. So how did I come up with this week's subject matter? We ll, I've been doing remote computer support over the phone for more than 15 years and often spend up to 40 hours a week on the phone helping people walk through their computer issues. I still fix computers and over the y ears I found that the calls that go quickest are the ones where the caller is at least a little prepared, in front of the computer when they call and follow my instructions precisely without getting distracted along the way.

The Common Core Standards have been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. Governor Scott has been a supporter for three y ears, but now states he supports the standards but not the test. State Representative Debbie Mayfield has proposed a bill, (HB25), requiring more extensive public hearings and cost analysis for implementing the standards. The establishment of national standards and a national test is the BEST way to prepare students in the United S tates. For too long, students have been evaluated by state tests. The performance on a state test does not show how well educated the Florida students are in comparison to students throughout the country. For the Governor to say he supports the Common Co re S tandards but not the national test is counter-productive. How ever, I can understand the Governors wanting to create a state test using the Common Core Objectives. F or years, the Florida legislators have operated the educational system on the cheap. Upon Governor Scott being elected, he reduced the education budget by $1 billion dollars. To use a state produced test will create the r esults the legislators want the public to see curve the results any way you want. The students in Florida deserve a good education built upon the Common Core Standards and national testing. The states collectively will be creating the national test; it will not be the federal government. Only then will the students of Florida really understand how they are performing when matched with students throughout the U nited States. Florida is famous for producing some of the best high school football teams and marching bands. No w is the time for Florida to produce the best students in the United States. R ay Hoffman Po rt St .L ucie Credit card scammersNo it's not Halloween yet. I had my debit card number stolen at Walmart last Tuesday and somebody cleaned out my bank account! All is back to normal now, money back in account, new debit card, went to the bank yesterday morning and they had taken care of it. Fo r tunately I had checked my bank account Wed. night (within the 48 hour period you're allowed to report unauthori z ed transactions) so a man at the customer service line which is open 24/7 was able to file a dispute and stop the transaction for me; all the money was replaced by Friday morning, thank goodness. I was using the new "Self-service" machine, they just put them in a month or so ago and the first time I used it I was delighted, it saves standing in long lines, etc. The second time I used it, not so good! I'd put money from my debit card on a shopping card to buy gas, so I could save three cents a gallon. Not much of a savings when somebody rips off your debit card number and uses it online to buy hundreds of dollars' worth of stuff. So be careful. Christmas is around the corner and the scammers are out there looking for little ole ladies who don't look like they know enough to check their bank accounts on line every day.Can't feel safeThere are so many things to worry about these days. There are so many crimes being committed by young and old alike. It's impossible to feel safe leaving your windows open or going for a walk in the evening time. It's as if we live in a time in which we must carry a stick or worse, a gun, to feel safe. Enough with commercialsT oday we are flooded with cable TV, Direct TV and Dish N etwork programming. These are old technology and old money-making schemes, and we are bombarded with commercial after commercial, with little entertainment, unlike the good old days, when each and every program had at least one sponsor, we now have as many as 10 or more 30-second annoying commercials. Why not have these satellite programs on the new digital side channels of the local T.V. stations? That would be as close to ala carte programming as possible. The religious and Latino channels are already enjoying the r iches of local audiences, so why not CNN, MSNBC, Bravo, HBO, etc. Cable TV, Dish network and Direct TV are expensive for the amount of real entertainment. The massive doses of commercials are negating the entire entertainment process. Using digital channels will also spread the profits around to our local affiliates and, as a result, our local governments will benefit more. I am aware that these networks especially cable TV pay hefty fees for use of the local utilities, but new taxes are being discovered all the time, so why not from digital TV instead of satellite TV programming?Stop for busesC orrect me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a law to stop when a school bus is flashing its lights and slowing down to stop? Don't drivers realize that means a child is near and about to walk to get on that bus? That child could be coming in any direction. Drivers be aware. There have been too many tragedies already because cars/trucks do not stop. I take my granddaughter to her bus stop at 7 a.m. I have had to jump from my car and stand in the middle of the street waving my arms as my granddaughter crossed the street to board her school bus. Only then do they start slowing down. W ake up, drivers, before you get behind the wheel in the morning. It's the law: stop.F ood stamp run aroundI have a rant about our state's assistance programs. I have had to apply for food stamps since having to stop working due to injuries sustained from a car accident. Ev eryone has proclaimed that the "new system" of obtaining assistance from the state will be very user-friendly and easier in the long run for all involved. Well, I don't feel that way at all. I applied for food stamps and temporary cash assistance due to the fact that I have no income and have a child and the child support that I do get is very sporadic. (I am thankful that I do receive it when I do.) I couldn't apply online and had to phone in. I had them send me the application in the mail and then when I received it, I faxed in my proof of income, mortgage, utilities and medical bills, and I did so the day after I received my letter from DCF. I used a friend's fax machine, because I couldn't afford to use a professional one that charged $1 a page, much less I don't have use of my car due to no insurance or an up-to-date registration. I waited 15 days, like the lady had said, for expedited food stamps. I called many times after the 15 days were up, trying to get an answer only to be hung up on several times due to too many lines being used. After 30 days of not hearing from them again, by mail, I w ent online, since they had an updated website for applicants and found that I "chose not to apply." I wanted to pull every last hair out of my head. I had to repeat the process all ov er again. In between, I've had friends drive me to the Salvation Army and a few other small food banks so as to not starve. After applying for the expedited food stamps online, where they take your information and just believe it for now, kind of thing, I finally got some help, 35 days later, of $150 for one month, of expedited food stamps. I still had to fax in my proof paperwork again and this would be for the next six months. I could see online how much they already allotted to us and was quite excited that we would be able to eat every day, much less three times a day. This time a friend took me to a professional fax and paid the $9 for my fax usage. I have been waiting 22 days for this month's allotment of food stamps. I have called DCF three times and got through: once a lady told me that yes, my food stamp allotment was approved, it would be available in 24 hours. The second time a lady said that she didn't know what the holdup was, that it looked like they were just processing it and I would have to wait for the social worker to approve it and they would send a letter. For some reason, the system isn't working for my case even though I have no income and was diligent in getting all my proof of income and bills into the Got something to say?

DCF office. The third time I called, I asked if there was anything they were waiting on and was told no and I had to wait for my social worker to approve it. I was told I can't ask for my social worker by name for some reason and no one seems to know what's going on. The website tells me how much is allotted to us and we can't get it. I don't understand. Why we are waiting so long? Especially when we were allotted the amount and all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted.

Ma r tin County is committed to finding viable ways to improve water quality within our watershed, including the use of innovative and alternative treatment technologies. The latest example of the C ounty's effort to improve our water quality can be found in floating wetlands, called Beemats, recently deployed in an Old Palm City stormwater treatment area. A STA captures, cleans and stores water before it flows into our local waterways. B eemats is a patented system which uses a cell foam mat to float aquatic plants in bodies of water for the purpose of removing pollutants. Testing has demonstrated the mats r educe the harmful nutrients, nitrogen and phosphorus, as much as 40-50 percent. B eemats are manufactured in New Smyrna B each. The County has purchased 11 Beemats totaling 3,667 square feet, or about 8,440 plants. "We just placed eleven mats into our existing STA to determine if they can work for us to both clean up water and are reasonable to maintain," said Deb Dr um, Martin County Environmental Quality M anager. "We are pleased to be working with a sustainable, made in Florida product that can be reused and r ecycled." After the plants have done their job, they are r emoved and can be composted or the majority of r oots can be removed, the plant split up into smaller plants and returned to the mat or plants can be planted in other stormwater treatment areas that need vegetation. Once removed, the mats (and all the other hard materials that go into our system) can be replanted and reused year after y ear. HOBE SOUND Hobe S ound Animal Protection League received news of a donation from the Pegasus F oundation of $100,000 to support HSAPL's capital campaign, Paws Forward: N ew Quarters for Cats. The campaign was launched to acquire a new site to house HSAPL's feline sanctuary. HSAPL currently resides at Ca r ing Fields in Palm City, a 23-acre sanctuary owned by the Pegasus Foundation. P egasus founders Charles and Barbara Birdsey created the sanctuary to house fledging animal rescue and environmental organizations. After spending over ten years here, HSAPL, a nokill feline rescue and adoption group, is ready to find property of its own. The donation by the Pegasus Foundation is the second donation of $100,000 which HSAPL has received since launching its Paws Fo rw ard campaign in midA ugust. The first donation was made by an anonymous donor. The campaign has r aised $246,520 to-date in donations and pledges towards the goal of $500,000. In addition to funding the purchase of the property, the campaign money will also be used to relocate buildings, as well as over 150 cats that live at the sanctuary. F or more information or to donate,visit www.hsapl.org or call the sanctuary at (772) 463-7386.

The park is now called Legoland and it has something to offer for all ages. U pon first entering the park, y ou are greeted by an array of colorful animal figures made from Lego bricks. In fact, most everything you see is made from colorful Legos throughout the park. If y ou have been there when it was Cypress Gardens, y ou will recognize many of the buildings and landmarks. In the center of the park instead of topiaries and plant gardens, you will find miniature cities all made from Legos. It is highly detailed and amazing to look at. You will need quite a bit of time to explore this part of the park. As you move deeper into the park, you will see the allfamiliar waterfall with all the landscaping just as it was in the old park. The landscaping is amazing with a varied collection of tropical and native plants surrounding the water fall. It is truly an amazing sight. If y ou follow the park all the way to the end, you will hit the pot of gold. This is where the original Cypress Gardens botanical garden is located. It is worth the price of admission just to see these gardens. The botanical gardens abound with plant species from both native to varieties from all corners of the globe. The garden paths are clean and the gardens are all welltrimmed and manicured. While on your stroll, be sure to have your picture taken at the historic gazebo. Also, be sure to spend some time at the old Banyan tree that is in the center of the gardens. After leaving the gardens, be sure to see the ski show. Although themed different from the original, it is truly entertaining to see. T oday I want to talk about a couple of the plants that I encountered on the tour that has a very interesting background. The first is a plant called the Traveler's P alm. The Traveler's Palm (ravenala madagascariensis) is actually not a palm at all. This plant is a member of the bird-of-paradise family. In fact, looking at the plant from a distance, it is very difficult to tell them apart. This plant has a very interesting history. B ack in the explorer days, this plant actually was a source of water for travelers, hence the name traveler's palm. The stems hold rainwater that can be used as an emergency drinking supply. Each stem can hold as much as a pint of water. I ts huge paddle shaped leaves that indeed have both a tropical and a majestic appearance characterizes the plant. Traveler's Palm is a very easy to grow plant choice and can really offer a distinct tropical look to any landscape. The plant requires a fairly sunny location and should be planted so the shape of the plant goes from east to west. I was not able to do that with mine but the plant is still thriving beautifully. They r equire moderate water but once well-established they are very easy to maintain. The main maintenance issue with this plant would be trimming off the dry and/or broken branches. Although quite hardy, they can be damaged in high winds or hard freeze conditions. My plant has been through both and has recovered every time. Y ou can fertilize with a high nitrogen fertilizer during the summer growing season if desired. This will help to keep the dark green leaf color and aid in faster plant growth. These plants are available at many local nurseries. The next plant I would like to mention is a variety known as the Song of India. The S ong of India is a tropical plant that has long narrow leaves that have green centers with a creamy yellow edge. The plant can grow up to four feet high. This plant is often used as an indoor tropical but can also be planted outdoors in a tropical garden or on a deck or patio in a pot. Song of I ndia requires bright light but will burn if placed in all day direct sun. The plant is easy to grow and only requires small amounts of water. They do not like their feet to be soaking wet. Since the plant loves humidity, it grows quite w ell in our area. This plant is widely available at many local nurseries.

member of the Children's Se r vices Council of Martin C ounty. That gave me a running start," Mr. Ranieri said. Mr. Ranieri believes wholeheartedly in what the area clubs are doing and hopes to continue to build on what they've already accomplished and elevate the programs to a whole new level. "I love the organization and the mission," Mr. R anieri said. "They literally change lives." He hopes to improve the clubs' reach in the community, serving more families, supplying more kids with the opportunities the clubs offer, and raising more money to support those programs. Mr. Ranieri is especially excited about the new education program that is being implemented in all the Martin County clubs this year and will be focusing his energy and effort on it and all of the other club programs. "I want to be there to help the kids in the community reach their full potential," he said. He 's truly looking forward to his new position and using his wealth of experience to further BGCMC's mission. Early Learning Coalition rolls out new format for board member orientationTREASURE COAST Early Learning Coalition of I ndian River, Martin and O keechobee County held its board member orientation in September. F or the first time, ELC incorporated tours of two child centers in each county, allowing new members and guests the opportunity to observe the child care setting where they discussed capacity, curriculum, state regulations, and developmentally appropriate activities. "This gave board members the opportunity to better understand the important learning activities that our children experience while attending preschool," said Jacki Jackson, CEO/executive director of ELC. In Ma r tin County, board members visited Apple Tree A cademy and Pebble Stone A cademy, both in Stuart, where they got a first-hand view of ELC's mission in partnering with parents, providers and communities to ensure quality early learning experiences through programmatic and financial support. In Indian River County, board members visited Little Rising Stars and St. Peter's Child Development Center both in Vero Beach, while O keechobee board members visited Rock Solid Christian Academy and Little People's Academy. N ew member Deborah Schooley is thrilled to be elected for the board. "As o wner of Tender Care, an early childhood education facility located in Okeechobee, I can use my exper ience to bring different points of view to the board," Ms. Schooley said. "I started Tender Care back in 1990 and I will be able to provide insight on what it takes to r un an early learning facility and use my experience to better serve ELC." This year's 19 board members make up a diverse group of business and community leaders. Among 19 are nine new members; the board chair Brandon Tucker, Cathleen Blair, Ann H olmes, John Locke, Terri Ma r der, Lison Philor-Jonnassaint, Deborah Schooley, Kim McCorrison, and Lisa Giessert. Together this board will set priorities that are relevant to the children and families in the communities ELC serves. The Early Learning Coalition of Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee Counties is responsible for the planning and implementation of school readiness and voluntary pre-kindergarten services in the three county area. The Coalition is re sponsible for making decisions to meet the early education and child care needs of the children in our communities. The chair and two other board members are governor-appointed. In addition to providing financial assistance for families, ELC offers support, training and resources to community providers who serve approximately 5,000 children daily through the School Readiness, Voluntary Prekindergarten Education programs and Resource & Referral programs.

MARTIN COUNTY N estled away in the Kanner Cr ossings Plaza in Stuart is one of the area's best kept secrets. R oma Pizzeria and R estaurant has been serving Pizza and pastries on the Treasure Coast for more than 40 years. The S tuart location is new to the area, but with the quality of food they are serving, they are soon to be a local favorite. "W e' ve only been here since the beginning of J une," said Chris Chlopek, o wner and chef. "Lots of people are familiar with our pizza and garlic knots, but we're really trying to serve a dinner menu as w ell. The homemade food is fresh and cooked to order. There's a lot of love that goes into every meal." Mr. Chlopek invited us to sit back, enjoy the quaint environment and sample many of the dishes he serves. With the help of an experienced right-hand man behind the scenes, they produced some of the most delightful Italian dishes I've had eat pleasure of eating. My guest and I were served a Caesar salad made with fresh Romaine lettuce and a large helping of garlic knots. "W e don't serve iceberg lettuce," Mr. Chlopek said. "R omaine is much tastier and really brings out the flavor of the other ingredients." The garlic knots were the flawless combination of parmesan cheese, garlic and butter. I don't know if I've ever had a more perfect knot. As my guest and I enjoyed our appetizer, Mr. Chlopek asked us to make r oom for the entrŽes. He brought out an incredible array of homemade Italian goodness that would make anyone's mouth water. Fr om Zuppa Di Mussels served over linguini with a tomato sauce, to incredible calms to penne alla vodka and chicken Francese, the r estaurant serves it all. The chicken and eggplant parmigiana was cooked to perfection as was the chicken marsala and sausage and meatballs. Each dish was prepared and served in a timely manner and left us anticipating a return to the r estaurant.By Anna-Marie Menhenottnews@hometownnewsol.com Pineapple Festival to take over downtown area JENSEN BEACH A B ahamian marketplace will line the streets, carnival rides will light up the sky and more bands than ever before will thrill festivalgoers from near and far during this y ear's Pineapple Festival in Jensen Beach.

Perfect weather to go catch a fish Cool mornings, warm days, polite water, what else can I say? I love this place. There's still plenty of bait both inshore and off, and lots of fish, so let's why not get one or two? The mornings have been the best time at the surfs edge. There's plenty of bait and plenty of fish. This week's catch list was long with blues, mac's, jacks, snook, tarpon, whiting and spinners making the cut. There's a lot of fish from most locations, only difference has been the time that they're biting, but there's fish all day. It 's an early bite for most, but watch the surf and tide, they make a difference. The only constant has been the spinner sharks with an appearance late afternoon through the evening time. The best part is they are all in casting range. If it looks like a mullet and has flash about it, cast and hang on. Whiting have been up close but be careful, the jacks will come just as close, difference being the jacks will take your equipment home with them. I didn't hear a lot about tarpon this week and I am not sure if the anglers are tired or the bulk of the fish have moved on. How many days can you get beat by a fish before you say this is a y oung man's sport? An eight-foot rod combo with a 3/4-oz spoon and you are r eady, so, come on down. River anglers are just buying bait not asking where to go and that tells me there are plenty of fish. Lots of big jacks and blues are cruising the river and neither are picky eaters so, K ayak anglers beware. There's still plenty of top of the slot reds and trout from County line road north, east or west side, and early is best. But, we have had reports of all day biting with live bait or artificial bait bringing them in. I guess the fish are hungry. There's still tarpon rolling out there, there's just no y oung anglers to play with. The snook have been big. J ust pick a bridge after sun down and remember, please do not bring a knife to a gun fight. Bridges have all of the above plus black drum and snapper, even a few pompano made the list. It makes it hard to pick a best-bet spot. Off shore is still about the same as last week with small dolphin on the top of the list. Anglers report plenty in 70feet, just north of the inlet pitching live baits. Now why no one has put bigger bait down to see why these fish are staying up, I am just not sure. B ig dolphin eat little dolphin, so if they are on top, why' would be a good question. There's some bigger fish at the 150-foot mark and that is where the black fins start, so if you put bait in, chances are the fins will be first. Troll bigger bait and see if that works. There have been a few sails in the mix, but the unusual has been the S panish mac's just north of the inlet. There's enough out there that a few commercial anglers are taking early advantage. N ice weather, no rain and an evening breeze, I love this place. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

Course offers tremendous golf, staffIf I had to call a course my "home course", Hammock Cr eek in Palm City would likely be my choice. The club sponsored my weekly golf r adio show for several years, and I enjoyed a round at the course several times a month for quite some time. I know the course almost as well as the back of my hand. H ammock Creek, located within a mile of Florida's Tu r npike and also I-95, originally opened in 1995. The course was the first designed by the father-son team of Jack N icklaus and Jack Nicklaus II and quickly became one of the finest daily fee courses in the area. It was also home to the Golden Bear Tour, hosted many mini tours, U.S. Open Q ualifying, and even hosted the Taste of Martin County. Those who have played H ammock Creek know it for its expansive fairways, large greens, variety of holes and friendly staff. The course is also tops with many lady golfers as it features few forced carries and greens complexes that allow for many different shots around the green. This past summer Hammock Creek closed from early J une until just this past week to upgrade the greens with new Tiff Eagle grass, improve drainage, and a few more tweaks. On the course, golfers who have played here before will find just a few changes other than the recently improved greens. The most obvious is the newly paved cart paths. Fr om the first tee all the way to the 18th green, the paths have been fixed and repaved. I t's a nice smooth ride the whole way around. The other changes come from clearing out or thinning palmettos, knocking down tall grass and previously unkempt areas to keep golfers from having a blind tee shot. The area behind the third green is one such place. Used to be if you hit your approach long, the ball would tumble across the cart path and simply disappear in tall weeds and palmettos. That area has been cleaned out and you now have a good 10 feet for y our ball to settle. The areas directly in front of the fifth and seventh tees have also been cleaned up and knocked down, allowing golfers an unimpeded view of the fairway. The cart path on number five no longer backtracks toward the fairway before heading over to the sixth tee, making for a safer environment when the group behind you is ready to hit their second shots. H ammock Creek has five sets of tees playing from just ov er 5,000yards up to 7,119yards. The course is usually set up to play hard and fast, giving your drives some extra distance. There is also plenty of room to hit driver on almost every hole. There are few nasty bunkers to avoid, but most won't ruin your day should you find them. F inally, what you've been waiting to hear about: the greens. They are, to put it mildly, wonderful. Every putt I hit rolled smoothly and predictably. They are firm and fast, and should only get better as they mature. The design of each appears to be almost exactly as it was before. No strange bumps or false fronts have been slipped in on us. It truly is like going back home. Fo r more information,visit www.hammockcreekgolfclub.com or call (772) 2202599. Contact James Stammer at stammergolf@yahoo.com.
