TREASURE COAST The YMCA of the Treasure C oast is growing, which means the organizations programs and community outreach will be expanding, too. The nonprofit that aims to strengthen the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility r ecently promoted three current employees, filling one position that had been empty for several years. I think a lot is going to change, said Christine C oller, COO for the YMCA of the Treasure Coast. She has heard about the newly promoted employees goals for the area and she cant wait to see what comes of them. It was all part of the YMCAs strategic plan to grow and expand their services which required a bit of internal restructuring. It just so happened that the company already employed skilled staff members who were looking for more opportunity and responsibility. Elisha Stoecklin, who started at the YMCA 13 y ears ago as a lifeguard, climbed the ranks and is now branch executive director of the Stuart location. She was senior program director previously and is looking forward to advancing the YMCAs mission in her new position. M y goal is two-fold: I want to continue to improve the programs and services that we offer and educate the community about what the Y does, Ms. Stoecklin said. S hawn Keil has been a YMCA employee for 19 y ears and as district executive director will oversee programming, volunteers, staff and fundraising for the YMCAs in Indiantown, I ndian River, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties. Its in St. Lucie County that Mr. Keil plans to do the most work, expanding programs and building awareness. I t s a very rewarding, challenging job, Mr. Keil said. J ami Melnick is the new Association Childcare Di r ector, a promotion from Childcare Services Di r ector at the Stuart Br anch. She will now be ov erseeing the preschools in Stuart and Indiantown. I v e worked very closely with all three of them and they all have a passion for the Y, Ms. Coller said. I hope they achieve things for the Y that we werent able to, before. Ms. Coller believes the possibilities of what the YMCA can achieve with a staff like this are endless and was glad to provide the opportunities to individuals who are passionate about the YMCA and their mission of building strong families and communities. Organization hoping to kick butts out of area MARTIN COUNTY T obacco litter is unsightly. It accumulates in drains and gutters, it floats in ri vers, its harmful to wildlife, and Keep Martin B eautiful thinks its time to do something about it. The local branch of the national organization K eep America Beautiful has focused on litter prevention, recycling and community beautification projects since 1994 in an effort to keep the places we live looking good. Ev ery year they hand out Environmental Stewardship Awards to residents involved in green projects and organize local events for the Great American Cleanup and I nternational Coastal Cleanup. Those cleanups, in addition to research collected at several local parks, motivated KMB to apply for grants for a new project geared toward r educing and preventing cigarette litter. P eople arent aware of the impact of tobaccor elated litter, said Evelyn Lespinasse, program coordinator at KMB. Its just a habit. They dont think about it harming the environment. Litter, like cigarette butts, was the number one piece of refuse, making up roughly 25 percent of the trash collected and r eported from this Septembers Coastal Cleanup. So KMB installed five ash receptacles this June and July at Flagler Park and two at Mary Brogan 085216 Support small business on Nov. 30 MARTIN COUNTY The local r estaurants, unique clothing boutiques, quirky shops and independent companies are what keep communities surviving and thriving and local organizations are encouraging residents to support their local businesses. The holiday season is an especially popular time to campaign for shopping local, but its a practice that groups like area Chambers of Commerce have supported for years. P ut your money where your heart is is the message the Council of Chambers that comprises the Stuart/Martin County, Jensen B each, Indiantown, Hobe Sound and Palm City Chambers is advocating for. Theyre promoting the campaign with flyers in shop windows, online and at local events to get the community on board. The mission: to get residents to spend money locally to support the local economy. I t builds a stronger community, said Lisa Teetor from the S tuart/Martin C ounty Chamber. W e re taking care of our own. Ms. Teetor, for one, plans to visit local vendors like theaters, restaurants and boutiques this season to put her money where her heart is. Ms. Teetor said that buying locally not only makes the shopping experience more meaningful because customers know who theyre buying from, but they are also investing in local families, schools, jobs and the city in which they live.

Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Rio Community Redevelopment receives set back RIO The Rio Neighborhood Advisory Committee is down but not out after last weeks county commission meeting that squelched their plans for community redevelopment. The group of residents whose job is to advocate for the community outlined a Creative Placemaking Plan for the Community Redevelopment Agency. Their purpose is to promote a distinctive community identity and vibrant local economy by financing redevelopment within focused areas. Those areas are typically ones that require revitalization. Thats exactly what the NAC aims to do with their plan and has for years: to help create a clear identity for Rio and an understanding of what the town is trying to achieve and r epresent. The group is r esponsible for several beautification projects in the city like the welcome sign at the western entrance to the town. The plan included improvements like artistic benches, bus shelter designs and roadway and sidewalk beautification to re v amp the area. Ji m LoPilato, once the chairman and now a member of the NAC, cited Downtown Stuart and even Port Salerno as communities that had been successfully redeveloped thanks to similar plans. O ver the last 50 years Rio has become nondescript, said Susanne LoPilato, a concerned member of the community and Mr. LoPilatos wife. Were trying to revitalize the community.

blueprint for how they want the community to progress regarding business development and architecture. Mr. LoPilato said they are simply trying to make Rio the desirable place it once was. They want to bring businesses back into town to help make it a thriving community. Mrs. LoPilato bemoaned the fact that there isnt even a place for her to sit down and get a cup of coffee or a meal in her town and would like to see r estaurants return to the area. B ut all of the plans the NAC proposed to the CRA and county commissioners required funding that they we re not inclined to provide. Last night was extremely disappointing, Mrs. LoPilato said. They essentially told us we werent a priority. They were very open to the concept but didnt want to be obligated to fund it, Mr. LoPilato said. He said he went into the meeting with high hopes, believing that since the CRA wanted the communitys input that theyd be receptive to ideas, but hes not completely discouraged. I m confident we can work our way through it, Mr. LoPilato said. The next step for the NAC is to r ework their plan to fit into the CRAs parameters. They will attempt to procure private funding and volunteers to see the projects that they believe are vital to the success of the community completed. Holiday home tour sure to raise money for local girls STUART Beautiful homes, whimsical Christmas decorations and expertly ornamented trees are sure to have everyone humming holiday tunes during the Womans Club of S tuarts Holiday Home Tour. The fifth annual event is the only one like it in the area and will be better than ever in celebration of the clubs 100th anniversary according to Polly Pharow who heads up the event every year. It includes six elegant homes around Martin C ounty, all kept secret until attendees pick up their maps the day of the event. After they find out where theyre going, they trek to one impressive home after another where volunteers will guide them through r ooms decked out in their holiday best. I t s a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, get into the holiday spirit and see the areas most beautiful homes, said Fran Banasiak, public relations director at the Womans Club of Stuart. S he said it makes a great family tradition. The home owners have r eally gotten into it, Ms. P harow said. The clubs biggest fundraiser of the year will also feature a festival of trees with several professionally decorated trees at one of the homes and smaller decorations at the Clubhouse that can all be acquired via silent auction. The money raised from the event will go toward providing scholarships for girls in Martin County high schools and to a benevolence fund for charitable giving. Last year the W omans Club of Stuart awarded $16,000 in scholarships. The money we raise is given back to the community, Ms. Banasiak said. In supporting the Womans Club people are supporting the community. After guests have ooh-ed and ahh-ed over stunning homes and unique decorations they are invited back to the Clubhouse for a r eception complete with cheese and wine, silent auctions and raffles. The event is absolutely spectacular, Ms. Banasiak said. I t s such a fun day from start to finish, Ms. Pharow said. T ickets for the event on S unday, Dec. 8 are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. T ickets can be purchased online at www.womansclubofstuart.com, by calling (772)261-4644 or at select S eacoast National Banks.

JENSEN BEACH The J ensen Beach Community P layground was recently awarded a $1,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation. The grant will help to cover the initial cost of building the new community playground at Jensen Beach Elementary School. The existing playground features pieces nearly 40-years-old and is rapidly falling apart due to increased usage. Each grant and donation we r eceive put us one step closer to reaching our financial goal of $300,000 to start building the new community playground, said Denise F aherty, general playground coordinator. We have curr ently raised about $70,000, but we still have a long way to go. J ensen Beach children submitted sketches and wish lists to help design the playground. Their ideas were brought to life by the Leathers & Associates design team. The kids enjoyed participating in the design process and they look forward to enjoying the playground once its completed. The new playground isnt just for Jensen Beach Elementary students. The playground will be open to the public after school hours and on the w eekends, said Ms. Faherty. I t s located within walking and biking distance for most families in the Jensen Beach community, and the new playground will provide a safe place for children to play. The playground will also provide a safe environment for the community's most vulnerable special needs children, and the design meets the Americans with D isabilities Act regulations. The custom playground layout includes wheelchair accessible groundcover, therapeutic swings, activity panels, accessible parallel bars and telephone systems. The unique play space will provide outlets that help corr ect developmental delays and play opportunities for children of all abilities. J ensen Beach Elementary is the hub-school for Martin C ountys Autism Spectrum D isorder Unit, and the ADA r egulated components will benefit these students. Children of all abilities will be able to play shoulder to shoulder, learning and growing together. To learn more about giving opportunities and the Jensen B each PlaygroundProject, visit www.JBPlayground.com or email info@jbplayground.com. W ildfire safety still important during the holidays TREASURE COAST The F lorida Forest Service wants to remind everyone to enjoy the winter holidays with safety in mind. Holiday wildfire safety begins the first day as your family searches for the perfect Christmas tree and Holiday wildfire safety ends with the carefully planned disposal of the tree at the end of the holiday season. Christmas tree fires are more likely to cause a house fire; a wildfire can result from the flames. C alin Ionita, Senior Fo r ester with the Florida Fo r est Service wants to provide families with a few tips on protecting yourself, your home and your property. One of the first things you can do to prevent Christmas tree fires is to pick the right tree. When choosing a Christmas tree, it is important to buy a fresh tree. Cut an inch off the bottom or ask the vendor to do it for you. This new cut will allow water to be taken up. Put your tree in water as soon as you get home and be sure to top-up daily. A fresh tree will drink about a pint a day for the first couple of days. Howe ver, do not think the danger ends just because the holidays are over and the tree is down. G et to know the burn laws in your area before y our strike that match. It is unsafe and illegal to burn wrapping paper and gift boxes. Consider recycling instead of burning your Christmas trees in order to r educe the chances of sparking a wildfire, said M elissa Yunas, Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Florida Fo r est Service. Christmas trees may be ground up for mulch or used to help stabilize sand dunes, build structure for fish in a lake or pond or provide shelter for birds and other wildlife. Contact your local Solid Waste Authority for recycling information. If you decide to burn your Christmas tree, here are a few outdoor burning tips: Never leave a fire unattended, and make sure it is out before you leave Keep a shovel and water hose handy Dont burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 35 percent Your fire must be contained to an 8foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel and must be at least 25feet from forests, 25feet from your house, 50feet from a paved public r oad and 150feet from other occupied buildings If your fire escapes, you may be held liable for suppression costs and damage to the property of others. Burning yard waste does not require an authorization from the Florida Forest Se r vice, but you should check with your local city, county or Florida Forest Se r vice officials to see if there are any restrictions in y our area F or more information about picking out the perfect tree, call (863) 655-6409 C alin.Ionita@FreshFromF lorida.com.

Pa rk to deter smokers from flicking their non-recyclable, slow degrading butts on the ground or in the water. I t s astounding how much cigarette litter is out there. We r e hoping that this will help prevent it from happening so much, Ms. Lespinasse said. Each slender receptacle is marked with a KMB and Dont flick it sticker. Flagler and Mary Brogan Park were chosen because of the high amount of tobacco litter r eported and now that the r eceptacles have been installed for a few months, follow-up scans reveal a decrease in litter. There were 177 cigarette butts found at Ma ry Br ogan Park in June and 105 in October. I t s showing that people are actually using the ash r eceptacles there, Ms. Lespinasse said. But the numbers havent gone down enough. S he said KMB will keep r eaching out to the community to educate and encourage a change in behavior. They will be at community events informing the public and handing out pocket and auto ashtrays to give smokers no excuse for littering. W e re trying to keep our community beautiful, Ms. Lespinasse said. KMB will continue to perform follow-up scans to make sure the amount of tobacco litter continues to drop and hopes to apply for another grant to install more receptacles at community parks. I think its going to be really good for the community, Ms. Lespinasse said. I t s critical to the health of the local economy, said Ron Rose, executive director at the Jensen Beach Chamber. Downtown Stuart is pushing the theme, too, with their Shop Local, S hop Smart advertisements and events like last weekends Fall Sidewalk Shop-a-Palooza to invite residents to explore all that the citys independently owned business have to offer. Bu t this is more than a local crusade. American Express has people all over the country pumped for S mall Business Saturday, which takes place on Nov. 30, the Saturday after Black Friday. They, too are urging people to Shop Small and Local to keep money in the communities that consumers live in and love. Downtown Stuart, among hundreds of other cities, is promoting the day of local shopping. This holiday season, instead of surfing the web or visiting big box stores to find the perfect gift, look no further than the myriad of independently owned shops and businesses in Martin County and feel good about supporting a vibrant local economy.SmallF rom page A1 www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 29, 2013 Martin County A5 085237SNYDER FINANCIAL, INC.Low Risk, Low Volatility, Successful Investment Solutions --F or Your Peace of Mind!Y OU DESERVE BETTER!My name is Diane Snyder.

One of the pitfalls Web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official Windows messages. If you've surfed the Web at all, then you've seen them; they look like regular W indows dialogue boxes complete with the red, round X that denotes a Windows error and an ominous message like "Your system is dangerously low on r esources" or "Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers." U sually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when y ou click it? Nine out of 10 times, you are brought to a W eb site selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, r ight-hand corner you know, the Minimize, Restore and Close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, restore or close the ad! Usually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking "Close" (or any of the other buttons) will give y ou the same result as if you had clicked the fake "OK" button. I once encountered a Web ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: "Internet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate your computer and Y OU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer." Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a Web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the user's hard drive. Nothing really wrong with that; you'd get the same r esults typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked "Go," but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? That's low. What's even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake "Windows" ads is garbage anyways that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this w eek on unscrupulous advertisers. Now let's go over a few things to look for so you won't get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking it's a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the Web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, A OL's Browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other Web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that it's an ad, and if y ou click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what y ou were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when you are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse over a link in your W eb browser, the URL or address where that link will take you is shown in the status bar before you click. If it is a genuine windows message, no address will appear in the status bar! So the next time you're online and you run across a "Windows message" telling y ou that you have a message waiting, or your system is not secure, take a look at the status bar as you hold your mouse button over the message's "Close" button; does an address appear in the status bar? If it does, y ou're looking at an ad, and feel free to click if you want to look at an ad. Or, do what I do and ignore it.

U ntil we begin to elect proven business professionals who can effectively operate an organization and make prudent decisions, and dismiss lawyers and life-long politicians, we are doomed. F rom the perspective of a snowbirdI am writing this in response to a letter I read from someone complaining about us snowbirds. It struck a nerve with me because I recently had a run in at the grocery store checkout line with someone who had similar feelings. I said some things out of frustration that I was not very proud of, however, I am tired of having to defend being a snowbird. Over the past 15 years I have been lucky enough to winter in Florida. I consider Florida to be home to me, as well as my home up north. I realize it is a blessing to have two homes, and I am grateful, but I dont understand why I need to apologize for it. I cant speak for all people, but this idea that snowbirds think they are better is just not true. There are arrogant people everywhere, whether they are snowbirds, full-time residents, on vacation, or just passing through. A rude person will be a rude person no matter where they are from, where they live or how long they stay in one particular place. Fur thermore, whether people like to admit it or not, snowbirds and tourists bring revenue to Florida. I dont come here for free. I pay my property taxes, shop at local businesses, bought my car here, and I am not the only one. I come from a tourist town up north and understand what it feels like to have to deal with heavy traffic during certain seasons and events. Yes, it can be frustrating, but many of our local businesses rely on these people to get them through their slow season as well. Do I get angry when I am driving behind someone who doesnt know the area and may find themselves in the wrong lane? Yes. But there are some horrible drivers who live there all year long as w ell. There was a gentleman who recently told me to let him know when I was going back to Massachusetts so that I could take some people with me. Maybe he was just having a bad day, I know his comment made me speak out of frustration, but no one deserves to be made to feel that they are not welcome. I am such a horrible person because I only live here 7 months out of the year? Do snowbirds cause you so many problems that you have to make a rude comment to an 80 year old widow at the grocery store? S hould people in Massachusetts be equally as rude to me when I am there because I dont live there all year? One thing I love about coming to my Florida home is how kind and accommodating most of the stores and r estaurants are to people my age. I am grateful for these people. It takes so little to be friendly and kind to people and it goes a long way. Truthfully, there are so many more nice people than there are mean, but the mean ones, unfortunately, are so hurtful. M aybe traffic is a little heavier when I am here, or you may have to wait a little longer at your favorite restaurant, but this is my home, too, and I shouldnt have to feel bad about that. It is hurtful to hear, I hate when the snowbirds are here, or go home snowbirds. Sorry to disappoint y ou, I am home. -Clara the SnowbirdPlenty of candy for teensIn response to the rant about not wanting the older children to Trick-or Treat at his/her house: Seriously, these children could be out doing drugs, getting drunk, having premarital sex, instead, they are asking for a lousy piece of candy. I say if you are old, young or just young at heart, come to my house there is candy for everyone!Snowbird loveGranted, the "Snowbirds" make us year round residents crazy. Granted the traffic gets unbearable when they arrive and it is almost impossible to get into a restaurant or find a decent parking space. However, please consider that they do support our economy and without them our state would suffer. We do not pay city or state income taxes, our sales tax is much lower than in other states and they pay property taxes for year round use and are only here for part of the year. I have been a full time resident of Florida for more than 20 years. Let's face it, the summers are brutal and the winters are fabulous. I say, even the birds know enough to get out when it's hot and come back when it's cold up north. Are we all jealous that they can afford the luxury we would love to have? Or are they and the birds smarter than we are?F ood stamp costThe cost of food stamps has grown 258 percent since 2000, largely because of relaxed eligibility rules issued by Obama administration. This is fiscally untenable. More importantly, our dependence on government to give money to the poor reduces our responsibility to giving. We are allowing bureaucrats to take our tax money to let us off the hook morally. Not a positive trend.Whose laws do we obey?We are told Obamacare is the law of the land and, therefore, must be implemented, funded and enforced. On the other hand, the president has done everything he can to dismantle and discourage enforcement of our immigration laws. Are his laws the only ones we must obey?Do they really care?Government agencies do not care about the children. We call them about abuse in the home and they go in and question the child in front of the child that is being abused. Dont they know better? Once the agency leaves, the child is then subjected to abuse again. Why would you question a child in front of their abusers? Its no wonder people dont trust them. If a child is stabbing themselves with a pencil or cutting themselves and hurting animals, there is something going on in the home. The workers need to listen to the child, not the parent. Thats why there is so much violence in the world. There is raping and killing, and we wonder why this kind of thing goes on. And all the agency does is give the parent an anger management course. Thats not going to help these poor children.We need helpIm trying to raise my grandchildren on disability. The r unaround that people get when they apply for government assistance is horrible. The economy is poor and so are the people who are trying to survive. The government makes trying to get by nearly impossible.Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee.

told me it was illegal to r ent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 r ooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbors house and the yard is a mess.More on computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an email address as its only form of contact.Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, its like living next to a dump. Why wont code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump? STUART For 63 years, Palm City r esident Bill Oughterson has spent his T uesday afternoons surrounded by friends and colleagues at the Kiwanis Club of Stuarts weekly meetings. Since J une of 1950, he has been an active, dependable, hardworking member of the club. As the longest-standing member of the local Kiwanis Club, Mr. Oughterson has worn many hats throughout his 63y ear tenure. He has held numerous board positions including serving 12 y ears as club secretary, one year as vice president in 1958, and club president in 1959. He formed both the Indiantown K iwanis Club and the Jensen Beach K iwanis Club. His involvement goes beyond the local level; holding positions as chairman of three international K iwanis committees and Governor of F lorida Kiwanis as well. Mr. Oughtersons dedication is also apparent in his perfect attendance at w eekly Kiwanis meetings for the past 63 y ears. B ill is more than a member of the club; he is a legacy and part of our institution. Hes a shining example of a life of public service and giving back to the community, said Suzy Hutcheson, K iwanis Club president. Bo rn in Nashville, Tenn., Mr. O ughterson and his family relocated to St uart a few days after his birth in November of 1926. They joined his father who had already been practicing law in Martin County. He graduated from Stuart High School in 1943 and enrolled in Citadel Military College of S outh Carolina. After enlisting and serving in the Navy, Mr. Oughterson was accepted into the University of Florida where he received his BA and LLB D egrees in May of 1950. Returning to St uart to practice law and be closer to his father, Mr. Oughterson was sworn in as an attorney in June and later that same day inducted into the Kiwanis Club of Stuart. I n these past 63 years, Kiwanis has been a steady and constant part of my life. Ive held many positions with Kiwanis and I have found joy serving in each and every one of them, Mr. Oughterson said.

MARTIN COUNTY S upporting environmental issues wouldnt normally be included in United W ays role as an unbiased advocate for the communitys needs. How ever, the freshwater discharges from Lake O keechobee have become much more than an enviro nmental issue; it is also an economic, health and safety issue. M any Martin County r esidents and businesses have been negatively impacted due to poor water quality in the St. L ucie Estuary. Some have lost thousands and others have gone out of business altogether. S ince financial stability is one of United Ways priorities, the local nonprofit agency has created a survey to quantify how much of a financial hit local residents and businesses have taken during the past few months in business revenue lost and requests for financial assistance from United Way agency partners. The survey is brief and the results will be reported to elected officials, local chambers of commerce, community leaders, economic development organizations and residents. U nderstanding the need for business confidentiality, this information will only be shared in an aggregate form, unless permission is granted to use it in another way.

The restaurant sits on the picturesque St. Lucie River and is accessible by both land and water. Boat docks are lined up against the r estaurant easily making it the perfect stop after an afternoon on the water. P anoramic views from the spacious dining area or the outside deck with stage area and bar leave patrons with a gorgeous setting and a breeze that accentuates the usually perfect Florida w eather. If the view and setting isnt enough, the food served at Wahoos is phenomenal. The restaurant boasts fresh seafood and a quirky menu that is sure to make everyone smile. When my guest and I arrived at Wahoos, we were greeted by a friendly staff that made sure every aspect of our visit was enjoyable. We we re seated next to an open window, with full view of the river, the boats and the breeze. O ur server, Melissa Stillman, suggested we try their famous Maryland Crab B alls as an appetizer. The golf-sized delights were big enough to be eaten with a knife and fork. They were full of herbs and spices, lumps of incredible crab meat and cheese and fried to perfection. They wereserved with a remoulade dipping sauce that combines perfectly with the tasty treat. As soon as we finished the crab balls, we tried the W ahoos wings. They can be made with buffalo sauce, parmesan garlic or with a fireworks sauce. They are served in a tin bucket, which adds a decorative flair to the delicious wings. F or our main course, my guest, a self-proclaimed burger connoisseur. tried a bacon cheeseburger with French fries. The juicy burger comes topped with a choice of cheeses and lettuce, tomato and onions with a pickle spear on the side. Not only was this an appealing burger on the plate, it was perfect to the palate. I chose the blackened M ahi sandwich with onion r ings. The large portion of fish was served on a kaiser r oll with tartar sauce, lettuce, tomatoes and onions. The fish was fresh and seasoned perfectly. I would definitely have this again during another trip to Wahoos. As we were relaxing after our meal, Ms. Stillman C elebrate the season listening to holiday music as the Stuart Community Concert Band comes together to perform its presentation of H ome for the Holidays. U nder the direction of Christopher Kalwa, the band will capture the spirit of the season with a concert mixed with Christmas carols, Hanukkah classics and a few surprises.

Par ades are practically a S tuart staple and the holiday season is no exception. This year marks the 53rd annual Stuart Christmas parade and the citys 100th anniversary and Stuart M ain Street, the parade organizer, is celebrating in a big way. The city will commemor ate its centennial in Mar ch, so the parade theme is Christmas past, present and future: Celebrating 100 Years on the St. L ucie. It s that milestone that has more than the usual number of businesses and groups interested in participating in the parade this y ear, according to Thondra Lanese, Stuart Main Street M anager. B ut the line-up for the hour-long parade is set and ov er 50 participants will be walking, driving or towing massive floats for spectators viewing pleasure. The nighttime parade will have East Ocean aglow with twinkling lights and holiday tunes and the floats will be judged on the best parade theme, illumination and musical presentation, the best representation of S tuarts 100 years, and the judges overall favorite. S anta will be there, too, but Stuart Main Street is r emaining hush-hush as to how hell arrive. I t s a tradition for the whole community, Ms. Lanese said. It will be the best parade in 100 years. The parade will run from Georgia Avenue to Monterey Road on East Ocean B oulevard on Friday, Dec. 6 starting at 7 p.m. B ut thats not the only parade scheduled to thrill r esidents this season. The day after floats take to the street, boats will take to the water for a display the community can enjoy ri verside. The 30th annual Martin C ounty boat parade, organized by Marine I ndustries Association of the Treasure Coast, is scheduled for Dec. 7 at 6:30 p .m. In the past, big boats, little boats and everything in between have impressed onlookers with bright lights and creative displays including swashbuckling pirates and dolphin-led S anta sleighs. Ev ery boat is judged on creativity, technical application of lights and effects, and enthusiasm and the best display will be awarded a trophy. I t s pretty spectacular, said Michele Miller from MIATC. Some of these guys get pretty crazy but in a good way. It s always a good time for the boaters, but spectators can make a night of it, too. Ms. Miller said it is a great opportunity to get the family together, lay out a blanket, fire up a charcoal grill, and show some enthusiasm shore side with glow sticks and air horns. F or a more refined exper ience, make reservations early for any of the restaur ants in Manatee Pocket where the parade ends. H oliday dinners with family and friends will only be enhanced by the parade that will continue all the way into the Pocket. The parade begins near Loggerhead Marina, cruises past the hospital and S andsprit Park around 7:15 p .m., to Manatee Pocket where there will also be an after party at a local restaur ant. The best viewing locations will be from Sandsprit Pa rk and Manatee Pocket, but parade-goers will want to arrive early for the best view. The Riverwalk stage in Downtown Stuart is a good place to see the kick off, but details will be lost in the distance between the boats and the shore. B oaters can still register to participate until Dec. 6. Br eak out the holiday sweaters, tune the radio to a favorite Christmas station, and celebrate the joy of the season with two of S tuarts most popular annual traditions.

Roma Pizzeria and Restaurant has been serving Pizza and pastries on the Treasure Coast for more than 40 years. The Stuart location is new to the area, but with the quality of food they are serving, they are soon to be a local favorite. "We've only been here since the beginning of June," said Chris Chlopek, owner and chef."Lots of people are familiar with our pizza and garlic knots, but we're really trying to serve a dinner menu as well.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 e xperienced right-hand man behind the scenes, they produced some of the most delightful Italian dishes I've had the pleasure of eating My guest and I were served a Caesar salad made with fresh Romaine lettuce and a large helping of garlic knots."We don't 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 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 room for the entres.He brought out an incredible array of homemade Italian goodness that would make anyone's mouth water.From Zuppa Di Mussels served over linguini with a tomato sauce, to incredible clams to penne alla v odka and chicken Francese, the restaurant serves it all. The chicken and eggplant parmigiana w as 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 restaurant.I really enjoyed the quality of each product.It was obvious that each meal is cooked with pride and is served to impress.Other menu items include hot and cold subs, fettuccini Alfredo, veal marsala, shrimp scampi, fruiti de mare, a combination of shrimp, clams, mussels and calamari served over linguini, and pizza to satisfy any pizza-lover."We are a genuine Italian restaur ant," Mr.Chlopek said."We don't cut corners.We serve consistently good, homemade food.Although we're new, we still have customers who are regulars.They come back because they know they're going to have great service.Roma Pizzeria and Restaurant is located at 6546 S.

Here on Floridas Treasure Coast we are always hunting for gold. A hidden gem perhaps... I think I may have just found one. He r itage Ridge Golf Club in Hobe Sound recently invited me out to spend a morning chasing a little white golf ball across splendid green fairways and green. I love playing golf in new places, and since it had been several years since I last traveled these links, I thought it a good idea to accept. To my surprise I found out that Heritage Ridge had r ecently undergone renovations to its greens. The club's o wners and management tweaked the course a bit, adding some length and getting the greens up to today's standards. When you look at the scorecard you may ruffle y our nose and think that a par-70 layout with five sets of tees, measuring 6,014 yards from the tips could never test y our game. You had better think again. The course is no easy walk-in-the-park round of golf. The course starts you off gently with a straight-forward up-hill par 4. The second hole grabs your attention quite quickly. The 180-yard tee shot is downhill to a narrow, yet wide green tucked behind water and a timber wall. You do not want to be short, but long isnt a picnic either as there are numerous mounds to give you a scary pitch back toward the water. The front nine features a drivable, for some big hitters, par-4 and a trio of tricky par5s. Heritage Ridge requires y ou to use your brain, not just your muscles. The signature hole here is the 535-yard par-5 eighth, with water coming in to play on every shot, there is little r oom for error. Even if you manage to avoid the wet stuff, there is sand guarding the green and out-of-bounds just over the green. My favorite hole on the course is number 10. After stopping to refuel with a cold drink and a snack, you climb atop an elevated tee and smoke your drive down the fairway. The approach shot must clear the water, avoid the bunkers and settle nicely on a very tricky green. The back nine plays to a par of 34 with only one par 5, the 13th. It's a reachable par 5 playing to a length of only 510yards from the tips. But dont let the length fool you, no one plunders birdies here without risk. What you lose in length on the par-4s, you make up for on the par-3s. Four of the par-3 on the course are over 200yards long from the back tee. I found myself hitting nearly every club in the bag, the mark of a truly good golf course. When you play Heritage Ridge, make a point of bringing your best putting game along for the round. You will need it. The greens are quick and roll ever-so-smoothly. In addition to being fast, the greens are quite undulating. If y ou leave yourself a downhill or sidehill putt, you had best read it well and put a good stroke on the ball or y ou may find yourself threeputting. A feature that one usually only finds at expensive, exclusive resorts and fancy country clubs is beautiful landscaping. Here it can be found in abundance. The club prides itself on keeping everything pleasing to the eye. With palm trees swaying in the breeze and flowering foliage its easy to get distracted from your game and actually relax on the course. Y ou just cant bring your lawn chair or sand shovel to look for more treasure. F or more information or to schedule a tee time,call the pro shop at (772) 546-2800 or visit www.heritageridgegolf.com.

TREASURE COAST The YMCA of the Treasure C oast is growing, which means the organization's programs and community outreach will be expanding, too. The nonprofit that aims to strengthen the community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility r ecently promoted three current employees, filling one position that had been empty for several years. "I think a lot is going to change," said Christine C oller, COO for the YMCA of the Treasure Coast. She has heard about the newly promoted employees' goals for the area and she can't wait to see what comes of them. It was all part of the YMCA's strategic plan to grow and expand their services which required a bit of internal restructuring. It just so happened that the company already employed skilled staff members who were looking for more opportunity and responsibility. Elisha Stoecklin, who started at the YMCA 13 y ears ago as a lifeguard, climbed the ranks and is now branch executive director of the Stuart location. She was senior program director previously and is looking forward to advancing the YMCA's mission in her new position. "M y goal is two-fold: I want to continue to improve the programs and services that we offer and educate the community about what the Y does," Ms. Stoecklin said. S hawn Keil has been a YMCA employee for 19 y ears and as district executive director will oversee programming, volunteers, staff and fundraising for the YMCAs in Indiantown, I ndian River, Okeechobee and St. Lucie counties. It's in St. Lucie County that Mr. Keil plans to do the most work, expanding programs and building awareness. "I t' s a very rewarding, challenging job," Mr. Keil said. J ami Melnick is the new Association Childcare Di r ector, a promotion from Childcare Services Di r ector at the Stuart Br anch. She will now be ov erseeing the preschools in Stuart and Indiantown. "I 'v e worked very closely with all three of them and they all have a passion for the Y," Ms. Coller said. "I hope they achieve things for the Y that we weren't able to, before." Ms. Coller believes the possibilities of what the YMCA can achieve with a staff like this are endless and was glad to provide the opportunities to individuals who are passionate about the YMCA and their mission of building strong families and communities. Organization hoping to kick butts out of area MARTIN COUNTY T obacco litter is unsightly. It accumulates in drains and gutters, it floats in ri vers, it's harmful to wildlife, and Keep Martin B eautiful thinks it's time to do something about it. The local branch of the national organization K eep America Beautiful has focused on litter prevention, recycling and community beautification projects since 1994 in an effort to keep the places we live looking good. Ev ery year they hand out Environmental Stewardship Awards to residents involved in green projects and organize local events for the Great American Cleanup and I nternational Coastal Cleanup. Those cleanups, in addition to research collected at several local parks, motivated KMB to apply for grants for a new project geared toward r educing and preventing cigarette litter. "P eople aren't aware of the impact of tobaccor elated litter," said Evelyn Lespinasse, program coordinator at KMB. "It's just a habit. They don't think about it harming the environment." Litter, like cigarette butts, was the number one piece of refuse, making up roughly 25 percent of the trash collected and r eported from this September's Coastal Cleanup. So KMB installed five ash receptacles this June and July at Flagler Park and two at Mary Brogan 085216 Support small business on Nov. 30 MARTIN COUNTY The local r estaurants, unique clothing boutiques, quirky shops and independent companies are what keep communities surviving and thriving and local organizations are encouraging residents to support their local businesses. The holiday season is an especially popular time to campaign for shopping local, but it's a practice that groups like area Chambers of Commerce have supported for years. "P ut your money where your heart is" is the message the Council of Chambers that comprises the Stuart/Martin County, Jensen B each, Indiantown, Hobe Sound and Palm City Chambers is advocating for. They're promoting the campaign with flyers in shop windows, online and at local events to get the community on board. The mission: to get residents to spend money locally to support the local economy. "I t builds a stronger community," said Lisa Teetor from the S tuart/Martin C ounty Chamber. "W e' re taking care of our own." Ms. Teetor, for one, plans to visit local vendors like theaters, restaurants and boutiques this season to put her money where her heart is. Ms. Teetor said that buying locally not only makes the shopping experience more meaningful because customers know who they're buying from, but they are also investing in local families, schools, jobs and the city in which they live.

Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Rio Community Redevelopment receives set back RIO The Rio Neighborhood Advisory Committee is down but not out after last week's county commission meeting that squelched their plans for community redevelopment. The group of residents whose job is to advocate for the community outlined a Creative Placemaking Plan for the Community Redevelopment Agency. Their purpose is to promote a distinctive community identity and vibrant local economy by financing redevelopment within focused areas. Those areas are typically ones that require revitalization. That's exactly what the NAC aims to do with their plan and has for years: to help create a clear identity for Rio and an understanding of what the town is trying to achieve and r epresent. The group is r esponsible for several beautification projects in the city like the welcome sign at the western entrance to the town. The plan included improvements like artistic benches, bus shelter designs and roadway and sidewalk beautification to re v amp the area. Ji m LoPilato, once the chairman and now a member of the NAC, cited Downtown Stuart and even Port Salerno as communities that had been successfully redeveloped thanks to similar plans. "O ver the last 50 years Rio has become nondescript," said Susanne LoPilato, a concerned member of the community and Mr. LoPilato's wife. "We're trying to revitalize the community." The plan also includes aCelebrating families Promotions mean new ideas, possibilities for area By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See SMALL, A5By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See R IO, A2By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsBy Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See KICK, A5 WEEKEND WEATHERF riday: Mostly cloudy, breezy; high: 77; low: 64; high tide: 4:54 a.m.; low tide: 1 0:52 a.m. Saturday: Par tly cloudy; high: 77; low: 66; high tide: 5:48 a.m.; low tide: 11: 42 a.m. Sunday: Pa r tly cloudy; high: 79; low: 66; high tide: 6:40 a.m.; low tide: 12:31 p.m. W eather courtesy of www.weather.com DO N'T CLICK TO O SOON

blueprint for how they want the community to progress regarding business development and architecture. Mr. LoPilato said they are simply trying to make Rio the desirable place it once was. They want to bring businesses back into town to help make it a thriving community. Mrs. LoPilato bemoaned the fact that there isn't even a place for her to sit down and get a cup of coffee or a meal in her town and would like to see r estaurants return to the area. B ut all of the plans the NAC proposed to the CRA and county commissioners required funding that they we re not inclined to provide. Last night was extremely disappointing," Mrs. LoPilato said. "They essentially told us we weren't a priority." They were very open to the concept but didn't want to be obligated to fund it," Mr. LoPilato said. He said he went into the meeting with high hopes, believing that since the CRA wanted the community's input that they'd be receptive to ideas, but he's not completely discouraged. "I 'm confident we can work our way through it," Mr. LoPilato said. The next step for the NAC is to r ework their plan to fit into the CRA's parameters. They will attempt to procure private funding and volunteers to see the projects that they believe are vital to the success of the community completed. Holiday home tour sure to raise money for local girls STUART Beautiful homes, whimsical Christmas decorations and expertly ornamented trees are sure to have everyone humming holiday tunes during the Woman's Club of S tuart's Holiday Home Tour. The fifth annual event is the only one like it in the area and will be better than ever in celebration of the club's 100th anniversary according to Polly Pharow who heads up the event every year. It includes six elegant homes around Martin C ounty, all kept secret until attendees pick up their maps the day of the event. After they find out where they're going, they trek to one impressive home after another where volunteers will guide them through r ooms decked out in their holiday best. "I t' s a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, get into the holiday spirit and see the area's most beautiful homes," said Fran Banasiak, public relations director at the Woman's Club of Stuart. S he said it makes a great family tradition. The home owners have r eally gotten into it," Ms. P harow said. The club's biggest fundraiser of the year will also feature a festival of trees with several professionally decorated trees at one of the homes and smaller decorations at the Clubhouse that can all be acquired via silent auction. The money raised from the event will go toward providing scholarships for girls in Martin County high schools and to a benevolence fund for charitable giving. Last year the W oman's Club of Stuart awarded $16,000 in scholarships. The money we raise is given back to the community," Ms. Banasiak said. "In supporting the Woman's Club people are supporting the community." After guests have ooh-ed and ahh-ed over stunning homes and unique decorations they are invited back to the Clubhouse for a r eception complete with cheese and wine, silent auctions and raffles. The event is absolutely spectacular," Ms. Banasiak said. "I t' s such a fun day from start to finish," Ms. Pharow said. T ickets for the event on S unday, Dec. 8 are $35 in advance or $40 at the door. T ickets can be purchased online at www.womansclubofstuart.com, by calling (772)261-4644 or at select S eacoast National Banks.

JENSEN BEACH The J ensen Beach Community P layground was recently awarded a $1,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation. The grant will help to cover the initial cost of building the new community playground at Jensen Beach Elementary School. The existing playground features pieces nearly 40-years-old and is rapidly falling apart due to increased usage. Each grant and donation we r eceive put us one step closer to reaching our financial goal of $300,000 to start building the new community playground," said Denise F aherty, general playground coordinator. "We have curr ently raised about $70,000, but we still have a long way to go." J ensen Beach children submitted sketches and wish lists to help design the playground. Their ideas were brought to life by the Leathers & Associates design team. The kids enjoyed participating in the design process and they look forward to enjoying the playground once it's completed. The new playground isn't just for Jensen Beach Elementary students. The playground will be open to the public after school hours and on the w eekends," said Ms. Faherty. "I t' s located within walking and biking distance for most families in the Jensen Beach community, and the new playground will provide a safe place for children to play." The playground will also provide a safe environment for the community's most vulnerable special needs children, and the design meets the Americans with D isabilities Act regulations. The custom playground layout includes wheelchair accessible groundcover, therapeutic swings, activity panels, accessible parallel bars and telephone systems. The unique play space will provide outlets that help corr ect developmental delays and play opportunities for children of all abilities. J ensen Beach Elementary is the hub-school for Martin C ounty's Autism Spectrum D isorder Unit, and the ADA r egulated components will benefit these students. Children of all abilities will be able to play shoulder to shoulder, learning and growing together.

W ildfire safety still important during the holidays TREASURE COAST The F lorida Forest Service wants to remind everyone to enjoy the winter holidays with safety in mind. Holiday wildfire safety begins the first day as your family searches for the perfect Christmas tree and Holiday wildfire safety ends with the carefully planned disposal of the tree at the end of the holiday season. Christmas tree fires are more likely to cause a house fire; a wildfire can result from the flames. C alin Ionita, Senior Fo r ester with the Florida Fo r est Service wants to provide families with a few tips on protecting yourself, your home and your property. One of the first things you can do to prevent Christmas tree fires is to pick the right tree. When choosing a Christmas tree, it is important to buy a fresh tree. Cut an inch off the bottom or ask the vendor to do it for you. This new cut will allow water to be taken up. Put your tree in water as soon as you get home and be sure to top-up daily. A fresh tree will drink about a pint a day for the first couple of days. Ho we ver, do not think the danger ends just because the holidays are over and the tree is down. "G et to know the burn laws in your area before y our strike that match. It is unsafe and illegal to burn wrapping paper and gift boxes. Consider recycling instead of burning your Christmas trees in order to r educe the chances of sparking a wildfire," said M elissa Yunas, Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Florida Fo r est Service. Christmas trees may be ground up for mulch or used to help stabilize sand dunes, build structure for fish in a lake or pond or provide shelter for birds and other wildlife. Contact your local Solid Waste Authority for recycling information.

Pa rk to deter smokers from flicking their non-recyclable, slow degrading butts on the ground or in the water. "I t' s astounding how much cigarette litter is out there. We 'r e hoping that this will help prevent it from happening so much," Ms. Lespinasse said. Each slender receptacle is marked with a KMB and Don't flick it" sticker. Flagler and Mary Brogan Park were chosen because of the high amount of tobacco litter r eported and now that the r eceptacles have been installed for a few months, follow-up scans reveal a decrease in litter. There were 177 cigarette butts found at Ma ry Br ogan Park in June and 105 in October. "I t' s showing that people are actually using the ash r eceptacles there," Ms. Lespinasse said. But the numbers haven't gone down enough. S he said KMB will keep r eaching out to the community to educate and encourage a change in behavior. They will be at community events informing the public and handing out pocket and auto ashtrays to give smokers no excuse for littering. "W e' re trying to keep our community beautiful," Ms. Lespinasse said. KMB will continue to perform follow-up scans to make sure the amount of tobacco litter continues to drop and hopes to apply for another grant to install more receptacles at community parks. "I think it's going to be really good for the community," Ms. Lespinasse said. "I t' s critical to the health of the local economy," said Ron Rose, executive director at the Jensen Beach Chamber. Downtown Stuart is pushing the theme, too, with their "Shop Local, S hop Smart" advertisements and events like last weekend's Fall Sidewalk Shop-a-Palooza to invite residents to explore all that the city's independently owned business have to offer. Bu t this is more than a local crusade. American Express has people all over the country pumped for S mall Business Saturday, which takes place on Nov. 30, the Saturday after Black Friday. They, too are urging people to Shop Small and Local to keep money in the communities that consumers live in and love. Downtown Stuart, among hundreds of other cities, is promoting the day of local shopping. This holiday season, instead of surfing the web or visiting big box stores to find the perfect gift, look no further than the myriad of independently owned shops and businesses in Martin County and feel good about supporting a vibrant local economy.SmallF rom page A1 www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, November 29, 2013 Martin County A5 085237SNYDER FINANCIAL, INC.Low Risk, Low Volatility, Successful Investment Solutions --F or Your Peace of Mind!Y OU DESERVE BETTER!My name is Diane Snyder.

One of the pitfalls Web surfers are bound to encounter are the hideous advertisements that are created to look like official Windows messages. If y ou've surfed the Web at all, then you've seen them; they look like regular W indows dialogue boxes complete with the red, round X that denotes a Windows error and an ominous message like "Your system is dangerously low on r esources" or "Your system is unprotected and is open to hackers." U sually, these messages (after alarming you that something is wrong) will invite you to click what looks like a normal Windows button to resolve the problem. What happens when y ou click it? Nine out of 10 times, you are brought to a W eb site selling some type of optimization or security software. To make this tactic even more insidious, the messages usually will have the three standard buttons on the top, r ight-hand corner you know, the Minimize, Restore and Close buttons. The deceptive part of including those three buttons within the ad is that they do NOT minimize, restore or close the ad! Usually, those buttons are a part of the advertisement and clicking "Close" (or any of the other buttons) will give y ou the same result as if you had clicked the fake "OK" button. I once encountered a Web ad that was promoting some type of security software. The text of the ad said something like this: "Internet hackers are a menace that can infiltrate your computer and Y OU ARE NOT PROTECTED; click here to see just what kind of information hackers can see about your computer." Then there was a link, and when I clicked it, up popped a window displaying the contents of my hard drive. Then I proceeded to look at the source code (the underlying code that makes up a Web page) to see how they performed that trick. What I found was that they had crafted a simple link that just calls up the user's hard drive. Nothing really wrong with that; you'd get the same r esults typing c:\ into the address bar of your browser and clicked "Go," but to craft it into an alarming message just to sell software? That's low. What's even worse is most of the software advertised in those fake "Windows" ads is garbage anyways that is more apt to slow your machine down than to help it. OK, enough of my rant this w eek on unscrupulous advertisers. Now let's go over a few things to look for so you won't get suckered into clicking on an ad thinking it's a Windows message. F irst thing to understand is if you are on the Web with I nternet Explorer, Firefox, A OL's Browser, Google Chrome, Opera or any of the other Web browsers out there and you come across a message that looks like a W indows message (has the same title bar, minimize r estore and close button and generally looks like a message that Windows occasionally spits out) there is a strong chance that it's an ad, and if y ou click it you will be, in effect, answering that ad and be whisked away from what y ou were doing to look at a sales pitch. The second thing to r emember is you can always see where you are going when you are about to click something online by looking at the status bar at the bottom of your browser window. When you hold your mouse over a link in your W eb browser, the URL or address where that link will take you is shown in the status bar before you click. If it is a genuine windows message, no address will appear in the status bar! So the next time you're online and you run across a "Windows message" telling y ou that you have a message waiting, or your system is not secure, take a look at the status bar as you hold your mouse button over the message's "Close" button; does an address appear in the status bar? If it does, y ou're looking at an ad, and feel free to click if you want to look at an ad. Or, do what I do and ignore it.

U ntil we begin to elect proven business professionals who can effectively operate an organization and make prudent decisions, and dismiss lawyers and life-long politicians, we are doomed. F rom the perspective of a snowbirdI am writing this in response to a letter I read from someone complaining about us snowbirds. It struck a nerve with me because I recently had a run in at the grocery store checkout line with someone who had similar feelings. I said some things out of frustration that I was not very proud of, however, I am tired of having to defend being a snowbird. Over the past 15 years I have been lucky enough to winter in Florida. I consider Florida to be home to me, as well as my home up north. I realize it is a blessing to have two homes, and I am grateful, but I don't understand why I need to apologize for it. I can't speak for all people, but this idea that snowbirds think they are better is just not true. There are arrogant people everywhere, whether they are snowbirds, full-time residents, on vacation, or just passing through. A rude person will be a rude person no matter where they are from, where they live or how long they stay in one particular place. Fu r thermore, whether people like to admit it or not, snowbirds and tourists bring revenue to Florida. I don't come here for free. I pay my property taxes, shop at local businesses, bought my car here, and I am not the only one. I come from a tourist town up north and understand what it feels like to have to deal with heavy traffic during certain seasons and events. Yes, it can be frustrating, but many of our local businesses rely on these people to get them through their slow season as well. Do I get angry when I am driving behind someone who doesn't know the area and may find themselves in the wrong lane? Yes. But there are some horrible drivers who live there all year long as w ell. There was a gentleman who recently told me to let him know when I was going back to Massachusetts so that I could take some people with me. Maybe he was just having a bad day, I know his comment made me speak out of frustration, but no one deserves to be made to feel that they are not welcome. I am such a horrible person because I only live here 7 months out of the year? Do snowbirds cause you so many problems that you have to make a rude comment to an 80 year old widow at the grocery store? S hould people in Massachusetts be equally as rude to me when I am there because I don't live there all year? One thing I love about coming to my Florida home is how kind and accommodating most of the stores and r estaurants are to people my age. I am grateful for these people. It takes so little to be friendly and kind to people and it goes a long way. Truthfully, there are so many more nice people than there are mean, but the mean ones, unfortunately, are so hurtful. M aybe traffic is a little heavier when I am here, or you may have to wait a little longer at your favorite restaurant, but this is my home, too, and I shouldn't have to feel bad about that. It is hurtful to hear, "I hate when the snowbirds are here," or "go home snowbirds." Sorry to disappoint y ou, I am home. -Clara the SnowbirdPlenty of candy for teensIn response to the rant about not wanting the older children to Trick-or Treat at his/her house: Seriously, these children could be out doing drugs, getting drunk, having premarital sex, instead, they are asking for a lousy piece of candy. I say if you are old, young or just young at heart, come to my house there is candy for everyone!Snowbird loveGranted, the "Snowbirds" make us year round residents crazy. Granted the traffic gets unbearable when they arrive and it is almost impossible to get into a restaurant or find a decent parking space. However, please consider that they do support our economy and without them our state would suffer. We do not pay city or state income taxes, our sales tax is much lower than in other states and they pay property taxes for year round use and are only here for part of the year. I have been a full time resident of Florida for more than 20 years. Let's face it, the summers are brutal and the winters are fabulous. I say, even the birds know enough to get out when it's hot and come back when it's cold up north. Are we all jealous that they can afford the luxury we would love to have? Or are they and the birds smarter than we are?F ood stamp costThe cost of food stamps has grown 258 percent since 2000, largely because of relaxed eligibility rules issued by Obama administration. This is fiscally untenable. More importantly, our dependence on government to give money to the poor reduces our responsibility to giving. We are allowing bureaucrats to take our tax money to let us off the hook morally. Not a positive trend.Whose laws do we obey?We are told Obamacare is the law of the land and, therefore, must be implemented, funded and enforced. On the other hand, the president has done everything he can to dismantle and discourage enforcement of our immigration laws. Are his laws the only ones we must obey?Do they really care?Government agencies do not care about the children. We call them about abuse in the home and they go in and question the child in front of the child that is being abused. Don't they know better? Once the agency leaves, the child is then subjected to abuse again. Why would you question a child in front of their abusers? It's no wonder people don't trust them. If a child is stabbing themselves with a pencil or cutting themselves and hurting animals, there is something going on in the home. The workers need to listen to the child, not the parent. That's why there is so much violence in the world. There is raping and killing, and we wonder why this kind of thing goes on. And all the agency does is give the parent an anger management course. That's not going to help these poor children.We need helpI'm trying to raise my grandchildren on disability. The r unaround that people get when they apply for government assistance is horrible. The economy is poor and so are the people who are trying to survive. The government makes trying to get by nearly impossible.Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee.

TREASURE COAST Workforce Solutions received a $7,000 community development grant through Wells Fargo to provide Wo rk Ce r tified training to individuals in I ndian River, Martin and St. Lucie counties to assist them in developing work readiness skills that will help them advance in today's job market. Wo rk Ce r tified, a national career readiness certification program, was developed right here on the Research Coast by workforce development staff, area employers and community partners. "Work Certified is a dynamic program designed by employers to ensure that today's job seeker is ready to work," said S usan Waller, work certified manager/regional workshop coordinator for Wo r kforce Solutions. "Wells Fargo has provided us with r esources to not only offer this program to develop incumbent employees into viable candidates for promotions, but also to develop even more job seekers into strong, competitive candidates that are ready to work."

told me it was illegal to r ent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 r ooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbor's house and the yard is a mess.More on computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an email address as its only form of contact.Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, it's like living next to a dump. Why won't code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump? STUART For 63 years, Palm City r esident Bill Oughterson has spent his T uesday afternoons surrounded by friends and colleagues at the Kiwanis Club of Stuart's weekly meetings. Since J une of 1950, he has been an active, dependable, hardworking member of the club. As the longest-standing member of the local Kiwanis Club, Mr. Oughterson has worn many hats throughout his 63y ear tenure. He has held numerous board positions including serving 12 y ears as club secretary, one year as vice president in 1958, and club president in 1959. He formed both the Indiantown K iwanis Club and the Jensen Beach K iwanis Club. His involvement goes beyond the local level; holding positions as chairman of three international K iwanis committees and Governor of F lorida Kiwanis as well. Mr. Oughterson's dedication is also apparent in his perfect attendance at w eekly Kiwanis meetings for the past 63 y ears. "B ill is more than a member of the club; he is a legacy and part of our institution. He's a shining example of a life of public service and giving back to the community," said Suzy Hutcheson, K iwanis Club president. Bo rn in Nashville, Tenn., Mr. O ughterson and his family relocated to St uart a few days after his birth in No vember of 1926. They joined his father who had already been practicing law in Martin County. He graduated from Stuart High School in 1943 and enrolled in Citadel Military College of S outh Carolina. After enlisting and serving in the Navy, Mr. Oughterson was accepted into the University of Florida where he received his BA and LLB D egrees in May of 1950. Returning to St uart to practice law and be closer to his father, Mr. Oughterson was sworn in as an attorney in June and later that same day inducted into the Kiwanis Club of Stuart. "I n these past 63 years, Kiwanis has been a steady and constant part of my life. I've held many positions with Kiwanis and I have found joy serving in each and every one of them," Mr. Oughterson said.

MARTIN COUNTY S upporting environmental issues wouldn't normally be included in United W ay's role as an unbiased advocate for the community's needs. How ever, the freshwater discharges from Lake O keechobee have become much more than an enviro nmental issue; it is also an economic, health and safety issue. M any Martin County r esidents and businesses have been negatively impacted due to poor water quality in the St. L ucie Estuary. Some have lost thousands and others have gone out of business altogether. S ince financial stability is one of United Way's priorities, the local nonprofit agency has created a survey to quantify how much of a financial hit local residents and businesses have taken during the past few months in business revenue lost and requests for financial assistance from United Way agency partners. The survey is brief and the results will be reported to elected officials, local chambers of commerce, community leaders, economic development organizations and residents. U nderstanding the need for business confidentiality, this information will only be shared in an aggregate form, unless permission is granted to use it in another way.

MARTIN COUNTY The YMCA of the Treasure Coast has partnered with Osceola St r eet Cafe' to help raise money for the Y's annual campaign to ensure that everyone on the Treasure C oast has access to Y programs and services that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Ev ery day, the YMCA of the Treasure Coast works to support the people and neighborhoods that need Y programs the most by addressing community issues, such as school readiness, chronic diseases and drowning prevention. Throughout the Treasure C oast, countless people know the Y. But there's so much more to our Y than one might think," said Charlene Foster, Director of De velopment, YMCA of the Tr easure Coast.

As a charity, we're dedicated to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation's health and well-being, and giving back and providing support to our neighbors." This year, the YMCA of the Treasure Coast has r aised $250,000 so far and hopes to raise enough to meet our goal of $271,000. F unds raised will support swim lessons for children, summer camp, afterschool and schools out day programs as well diabetes prevention and summer learning loss programs.

The restaurant sits on the picturesque St. Lucie River and is accessible by both land and water. Boat docks are lined up against the r estaurant easily making it the perfect stop after an afternoon on the water. P anoramic views from the spacious dining area or the outside deck with stage area and bar leave patrons with a gorgeous setting and a breeze that accentuates the usually perfect Florida w eather. If the view and setting isn't enough, the food served at Wahoo's is phenomenal. The restaurant boasts fresh seafood and a quirky menu that is sure to make everyone smile. When my guest and I arrived at Wahoo's, we were greeted by a friendly staff that made sure every aspect of our visit was enjoyable. We we re seated next to an open window, with full view of the river, the boats and the breeze. O ur server, Melissa Stillman, suggested we try their famous Maryland Crab B alls as an appetizer. The golf-sized delights were big enough to be eaten with a knife and fork. They were full of herbs and spices, lumps of incredible crab meat and cheese and fried to perfection. They wereserved with a remoulade dipping sauce that combines perfectly with the tasty treat. As soon as we finished the crab balls, we tried the W ahoo's wings. They can be made with buffalo sauce, parmesan garlic or with a fireworks sauce. They are served in a tin bucket, which adds a decorative flair to the delicious wings. F or our main course, my guest, a self-proclaimed burger connoisseur. tried a bacon cheeseburger with Fr ench fries. The juicy burger comes topped with a choice of cheeses and lettuce, tomato and onions with a pickle spear on the side. Not only was this an appealing burger on the plate, it was perfect to the palate. I chose the blackened M ahi sandwich with onion r ings. The large portion of fish was served on a kaiser r oll with tartar sauce, lettuce, tomatoes and onions. The fish was fresh and seasoned perfectly. I would definitely have this again during another trip to Wahoo's. As we were relaxing after our meal, Ms. Stillman C elebrate the season listening to holiday music as the Stuart Community Concert Band comes together to perform its presentation of H ome for the Holidays. U nder the direction of Christopher Kalwa, the band will capture the spirit of the season with a concert mixed with Christmas carols, Hanukkah classics and a few surprises.

Pa r ades are practically a S tuart staple and the holiday season is no exception. This year marks the 53rd annual Stuart Christmas parade and the city's 100th anniversary and Stuart M ain Street, the parade organizer, is celebrating in a big way. The city will commemor ate its centennial in Ma r ch, so the parade theme is "Christmas past, present and future: Celebrating 100 Years on the St. L ucie." It 's that milestone that has more than the usual number of businesses and groups interested in participating in the parade this y ear, according to Thondra Lanese, Stuart Main Street M anager. B ut the line-up for the hour-long parade is set and ov er 50 participants will be walking, driving or towing massive floats for spectators' viewing pleasure. The nighttime parade will have East Ocean aglow with twinkling lights and holiday tunes and the floats will be judged on the best parade theme, illumination and musical presentation, the best representation of S tuart's 100 years, and the judges' overall favorite. S anta will be there, too, but Stuart Main Street is r emaining hush-hush as to how he'll arrive. "I t' s a tradition for the whole community," Ms. Lanese said. "It will be the best parade in 100 years." The parade will run from Georgia Avenue to Monterey Road on East Ocean B oulevard on Friday, Dec. 6 starting at 7 p.m. B ut that's not the only parade scheduled to thrill r esidents this season. The day after floats take to the street, boats will take to the water for a display the community can enjoy ri verside. The 30th annual Martin C ounty boat parade, organized by Marine I ndustries Association of the Treasure Coast, is scheduled for Dec. 7 at 6:30 p .m. In the past, big boats, little boats and everything in between have impressed onlookers with bright lights and creative displays including swashbuckling pirates and dolphin-led S anta sleighs. Ev ery boat is judged on creativity, technical application of lights and effects, and enthusiasm and the best display will be awarded a trophy. "I t' s pretty spectacular," said Michele Miller from MIATC. "Some of these guys get pretty crazy but in a good way." It 's always a good time for the boaters, but spectators can make a night of it, too. Ms. Miller said it is a great opportunity to get the family together, lay out a blanket, fire up a charcoal grill, and show some enthusiasm shore side with glow sticks and air horns. F or a more refined exper ience, make reservations early for any of the restaur ants in Manatee Pocket where the parade ends. H oliday dinners with family and friends will only be enhanced by the parade that will continue all the way into the Pocket. The parade begins near Loggerhead Marina, cruises past the hospital and S andsprit Park around 7:15 p .m., to Manatee Pocket where there will also be an after party at a local restaur ant. The best viewing locations will be from Sandsprit Pa rk and Manatee Pocket, but parade-goers will want to arrive early for the best view. The Riverwalk stage in Downtown Stuart is a good place to see the kick off, but details will be lost in the distance between the boats and the shore. B oaters can still register to participate until Dec. 6. Br eak out the holiday sweaters, tune the radio to a favorite Christmas station, and celebrate the joy of the season with two of S tuart's most popular annual traditions.

Roma Pizzeria and Restaurant has been serving Pizza and pastries on the Treasure Coast for more than 40 years. The Stuart location is new to the area, but with the quality of food they are serving, they are soon to be a local favorite. "We've only been here since the beginning of June," said Chris Chlopek, owner and chef."Lots of people are familiar with our pizza and garlic knots, but we're really trying to serve a dinner menu as well.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 e xperienced right-hand man behind the scenes, they produced some of the most delightful Italian dishes I've had the pleasure of eating My guest and I were served a Caesar salad made with fresh Romaine lettuce and a large helping of garlic knots."We don't 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 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 room for the entrŽes.He brought out an incredible array of homemade Italian goodness that would make anyone's mouth water.From Zuppa Di Mussels served over linguini with a tomato sauce, to incredible clams to penne alla v odka and chicken Francese, the restaurant serves it all. The chicken and eggplant parmigiana w as 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 restaurant.I really enjoyed the quality of each product.It was obvious that each meal is cooked with pride and is served to impress.Other menu items include hot and cold subs, fettuccini Alfredo, veal marsala, shrimp scampi, fruiti de mare, a combination of shrimp, clams, mussels and calamari served over linguini, and pizza to satisfy any pizza-lover."We are a genuine Italian restaur ant," Mr.Chlopek said."We don't cut corners.We serve consistently good, homemade food.Although we're new, we still have customers who are regulars.They come back because they know they're going to have great service.Roma Pizzeria and Restaurant is located at 6546 S.

Here on Florida's Treasure Coast we are always hunting for gold. A hidden gem perhaps... I think I may have just found one. He r itage Ridge Golf Club in Hobe Sound recently invited me out to spend a morning chasing a little white golf ball across splendid green fairways and green. I love playing golf in new places, and since it had been several years since I last traveled these links, I thought it a good idea to accept. To my surprise I found out that Heritage Ridge had r ecently undergone renovations to its greens. The club's o wners and management tweaked the course a bit, adding some length and getting the greens up to today's standards. When you look at the scorecard you may ruffle y our nose and think that a par-70 layout with five sets of tees, measuring 6,014 yards from the tips could never test y our game. You had better think again. The course is no easy walk-in-the-park round of golf. The course starts you off gently with a straight-forward up-hill par 4. The second hole grabs your attention quite quickly. The 180-yard tee shot is downhill to a narrow, yet wide green tucked behind water and a timber wall. You do not want to be short, but long isn't a picnic either as there are numerous mounds to give you a scary pitch back toward the water. The front nine features a drivable, for some big hitters, par-4 and a trio of tricky par5s. Heritage Ridge requires y ou to use your brain, not just your muscles. The signature hole here is the 535-yard par-5 eighth, with water coming in to play on every shot, there is little r oom for error. Even if you manage to avoid the wet stuff, there is sand guarding the green and out-of-bounds just over the green. My favorite hole on the course is number 10. After stopping to refuel with a cold drink and a snack, you climb atop an elevated tee and smoke your drive down the fairway. The approach shot must clear the water, avoid the bunkers and settle nicely on a very tricky green. The back nine plays to a par of 34 with only one par 5, the 13th. It's a reachable par 5 playing to a length of only 510yards from the tips. But don't let the length fool you, no one plunders birdies here without risk. What you lose in length on the par-4s, you make up for on the par-3s. Four of the par-3 on the course are over 200yards long from the back tee. I found myself hitting nearly every club in the bag, the mark of a truly good golf course. When you play Heritage Ridge, make a point of bringing your best putting game along for the round. You will need it. The greens are quick and roll ever-so-smoothly. In addition to being fast, the greens are quite undulating. If y ou leave yourself a downhill or sidehill putt, you had best read it well and put a good stroke on the ball or y ou may find yourself threeputting. A feature that one usually only finds at expensive, exclusive resorts and fancy country clubs is beautiful landscaping. Here it can be found in abundance. The club prides itself on keeping everything pleasing to the eye. With palm trees swaying in the breeze and flowering foliage it's easy to get distracted from your game and actually relax on the course. Y ou just can't bring your lawn chair or sand shovel to look for more treasure. F or more information or to schedule a tee time,call the pro shop at (772) 546-2800 or visit www.heritageridgegolf.com.
