T IPS OR GIFTS?MARTIN COUNTY The Library F oundation of Martin County inducted three new members last month to help fulfill their mission of acquiring and administering funds to enrich library services and facilities. Christine DelVecchio, a private client adviser at U.S. Trust, Bank of America; Wesley R. Harvin II, Esq. of the law firm Harvin & Harvin; and Charles Cleaver, vice president and CFO at Martin Health Systems we re all welcomed to the board at the foundations annual meeting. The local libraries are supported by local taxes, but those funds dont supply everything the libraries need, so the Foundation fills in the gaps with various fundraising projects. Over the last 20 years the nonprofit has raised more than nine million dollars for the libraries in Ma r tin County, a number Suzanne H orstman, executive director of the Library Foundation of Martin C ounty, believes is a testament to how much the community loves their libraries. The group organizes events like B ookMania!, gives out the annual K iplinger Literacy Award, and identifies sources of philanthropy in the community so the libraries in Martin County can receive upgrades and enhancements like new computers and capital improvements. W e call it a public-private partnership, said Ms. Horstman. These ambassadors to the library system each have a special interest in the programs and services offered by the library and all are passionate about what the library does. I want to do my best to support the already successful programs and plans, Mr. Harvin said. He is excited about participating in the tutoring programs at some of the branches, math and science in particular. Ms. DelVecchio is looking forward to focusing on inviting parents and children to become more involved at the library, a mission T eacher negotiations at an impasse MARTIN COUNTY The Martin County School District and the Ma r tin County Education Association have reached an impasse in negotiations but hope to resolve their differences as quickly as possible for the good of the teachers. S ince Sept. 18, the groups have engaged in six sessions to negotiate salary issues, contract language and new state statutes and what it will mean for teachers pay. Included in the discussions are the 3.35 million dollars Governor Scott allotted to Martin County teachers and how those funds will be distributed. Also being discussed is the change in Florida state law from an experience-based salary schedule to performance based pay for educators. K im Sabol, the districts staff attorney and chief negotiator, thinks that new law is part of whats causing the delay in reaching a solution, partially because it r equires teachers to relinquish their job security. Its a big paradigm shift from what teachers are used to so theres been some r esistance, Ms. S abol said. A ccording to Ms. S abol, teachers can choose to be grandfathered into the old law and keep their current contracts, but they wont be eligible for the pay increases that come with the new performance based contracts that are renewedThe fourth annual Beach 2 Bar 5k, a race from Stuart Beach to Carsons T avern in Stuart, benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

TREASURE COAST Making sure that everyone in your life is smiling during the holidays can be a source of stress. B esides buying presents for the little ones and baking pies for parties at work, making sure that those who provide y ear-round services are taken care of during the holidays is usually top on the to-do list. Those who make life easier, such as mail and newspaper carriers, pool and lawn maintenance workers, hair stylists, y our childs teacher and housekeepers, should be given a special token of thanks. Knowing how much or what to give can be overwhelming. He re is a list from www.realsimple.com of ideal ways to show appreciation to those who do so much.Give a tip toB uilding superintendent: $20 to $100, depending on how responsive and helpful y our super has been. D oorman: $20 to $100. If there are multiple doormen, $15 or more for each is fine; if y ou have only one, then the higher end of that range is more appropriate, especially if he is friendly and does a lot for you. The average holiday tip is $50. Elevator operator/other building staff: $20 to $50. Check with your building association to see if there is a holiday tip pool that is shared by all of the buildings employees. Landscaper/gardener: $20 to $50. If he or she comes frequently, give up to a weeks pay. P ool cleaners: F or a regular crew, the price of one cleaning, to divide among themselves. If a different employee shows up each visit, holiday tipping is unnecessary. N ewspaper carrier: $10 to $30, or the equivalent of one month of the subscription price. Sometimes you can include a tip when you pay y our bill. Remember that adults usually do this job these days. H andyman: $15 to $40, depending on how much work youve had him do. Tr ash/recycling collectors: $10 to $30 each for private service; for public service, check your local municipality for regulations as some areas may not allow tipping.Buy a gift for yourAssistant: In addition to any end-of-the-year bonus, give a gift or gift card worth at least $50, depending on your position in the company and the assistants length of service. Av oid perfume, clothing, or anything that could be perceived as too personal. B oss: While not necessary, a simple gift is a nice gesture. T alk to coworkers to see if theyd like to chip in to buy a gift card or a restaurant gift certificate. T eacher/tutor: Dont spend more than $25. Assuming the school allows gifts, give something such as a bookstore or r estaurant gift certificate, a picture frame, a coffee shop gift card, or a homemade gift from your child, accompanied by a hand-written thanky ou note.

Financial resolutions for the New YearAbout 45 percent of Americans usually make New Years r esolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isnt such a tragedy when our r esolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions r esolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals its clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through. So what sorts of financial re solutions might you consider? Here are a few possibilities: Boost your contributions to your retirement plans. Each year, try to put in a little more to your IRA and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored re tirement plans. These tax-advantaged accounts are good options for your re tirement savings strategy. Reduce your debts. Its not always easy to reduce y our debts, but make it a goal to finish 2014 with a smaller debt load than you had going into the new y ear. The lower your monthly debt payments, the more money youll have to invest for retirement, college for your children (or grandchildren) and other important objectives. Build your emergency fund. Work on building an emergency fund containing six to 12 months worth of living expenses, with the money held in a liquid account that offers a high degree of preservation of principal. Without such a fund, you might be forced to dip into your long-term investments to pay for emergencies, such as a new furnace, a major car repair, and so on. You might not be able to finish creating your emergency fund in one y ear, but contribute as much as you can afford.

J oanna Bereda has always known she was meant for barbering from the time her father owned a barbershop in Canada. For 65 years he r an the business that Ms. Ber eda eventually took over. After moving to Florida and working at another barbershop for seven years, she thought it was about time she opened up her own so she could conduct business on her terms. So on Oct. 30 Ms. Bereda celebrated the opening of M axxs Shaving Room, named for her son who has been shaving his head for y ears. B ut with a 27-year background in the trade she wanted to offer more than a simple shave and haircut. S he wanted to offer a relaxing experience in an upscale setting for the most discerning gentlemen. I wanted to create a place a man could call his own, Ms. Bereda said. M axxs Shaving Room is just that: a gentlemans barbershop that offers haircuts and traditional hot shaves, massages, manicures and pedicures, color, waxing, even shoe shining. She knows men are often uncomfortable with those services because theyre typically only offered in places frequented by women, but they are no less deserving. M ore and more men want to be taken care of and catered to, Ms. Bereda said, and she wants Maxxs to be the place that happens. S he specializes in slow, r elaxing, comforting hot shaves, a tradition she considers beautiful. I modernized the barbering but kept the old traits of it, Ms. Bereda said. S he loves what she does, interacting with her clients and making them feel great complete, even and is thrilled to offer her services to a small town like Stuart that she has come to love. M axxs Shaving room is a one-stop shop for men with an inclination for comfort and tradition.

F or any person male or female walking a mile in 4inch stiletto heels would be considered a feat (pun intended.) But that didnt stop hundreds of men throughout the Treasure Coast who stepped up to Walk a Mile in H er Shoes during the 2013 events coordinated by SafeS pace in Martin, St. Lucie and I ndian River counties. Du r ing the events, men are challenged to walk one mile in women's red high-heeled shoes. Most men quickly realize that it's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's a lighthearted way to get the community talking about something that's otherwise difficult to talk about: domestic violence. One walk was held in each of the three Treasure Coast counties during the month of O ctober to coincide with N ational Domestic Violence A wareness Month. SafeSpace, the only non-profit organization serving victims of domestic violence in the region, has been coordinating the Walk a M ile in Her Shoes events since 2010 in an effort to increase awareness and take steps towards ending domestic violence. What started with a handful of brave men has grown to nearly 400 law enforcement officials, community leaders, businessmen, fathers and sons who helped raise a total of $51,000 to provide victims of domestic violence with emergency shelter, education and support. I t was remarkable to see how many people across the Tr easure Coast came together this year to raise awareness that domestic violence happens right in our own backyards, said Jill Borowicz, CEO of SafeSpace We touched so many people through this event and without a doubt have saved lives in the process. Each $500 raised provides one week of safety for a family of three in the S afeSpace shelter. The 2013 events exceeded fundraising goals and also achieved record participation thanks in part to the enormous support from community leaders in all three counties. Local law enforcement and public safety officers switched out their boots for heels, while elected officials showed their constituents that domestic violence will not be tolerated in their communities. Another key to the success of the Walk A Mile events: dedicated co-chairs who not only helped coordinate logistics and recruit participants, but also could be seen about town donning red high heels to generate buzz and promote the walks. A s first responders, police officers know all too well that domestic violence does not discriminate. This is one way that the community can come together and take a stand against this crime that affects one in four women, said Chief Deputy L. E. "Bud S pencer co-chair of the Indian River County Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. P lans are underway to encourage more men across the Treasure Coast to step up for the 2014 Walk a Mile in H er Shoes events.

modest gift that shows your appreciation. Cash is not a good option. Be sure to check with the agency first, as some prohibit gifts. N ursing home employees: Check company policy. Cash is not appropriate, but something that can be shared among the staff, like chocolate, cookies, or flowers, is a great idea. Letter carrier/package courier: While nothing is expected, if you have a friendly relationship with the person, then a small gift or gift card in the $20 range is a nice gesture. Anything more valuable than that is prohibited by the United States Postal Service. FedEx allows tips or a gift worth up to $75. UPS does not have an official policy. N anny/au pair: A tip equal to one or two weeks pay, plus a personal gift from your child(ren), such as a framed crayon or marker portrait showing the childs appreciation. Avoid kid-oriented gifts; an attractive handbag might score major points. Day -care staff: $25 to $70 each for those who have direct contact with your child(ren), plus a small, personal gift from your offspring. If only one person takes care of your kids, shoot for the higher end of that range. A gift certificate is fine, but take the time to include a hand-written card.Give a tip or gift toBab ysitter: C ash or a gift equal to one or two nights pay. A personal gift from your child(ren) is always appreciated as well. Cleaning lady: Up to one w eeks pay and/or a gift. D og walker: One weeks pay and/or a gift. While tips are the norm, a down vest for winter walks, a massage, and other spa treatments are all thoughtful gift options. P et groomer: A tip or gift in the ballpark of the price of one session. H airstylist/manicurist/barber: The cost of one visit, or a gift of equivalent worth. If you deal with more than one person at a given establishment, give cash so they can split it among themselves. P ersonal trainer/yoga instructor/massage therapist: Up to one sessions fee or a modest gift, depending on how often you see him/her and whether he/she comes to y our home. Avoid giving chocolate, cookies, or other unhealthy foods. P ersonal caregiver: Up to a w eeks salary or a modest gift. M ost important, though, is that all holiday tips or gifts be accompanied by a handwritten Happy Holidays note. TREASURE COAST W ith Indian River State C olleges introduction of a B achelors Degree in Elementary Education, Treasure Coast residents can now complete all the courses they need to become an elementary school teacher within easy driving distance. Registration is now underway, with classes beginning Jan. 8. B usy Treasure Coast residents juggling work and family responsibilities can now achieve their dream of becoming an elementary school teacher without leaving the area to complete their education, said Dr Ian Neuhard, director of IRSC Baccalaureate Programs. IRSC combines this convenience with many opportunities to develop teaching skills right in local schools. The IRSC program was launched in response to the strong demand for elementary school teachers in the region. Based on labor market data and a survey of local schools, between 100 to 200 job openings are projected annually in the four counties served by IRSC. Stressing the need for more teachers, the School Districts of St. L ucie, Martin, Indian River and Okeechobee counties submitted letters to the F lorida Department of E ducation indicating their support of a Bachelors D egree in Elementary Education at IRSC. The program offers students the opportunity to participate in multiple practicums in local schools, culminating in student teaching. In addition, an innovative TeachLive simulator engages them in interaction with different types of students and behaviors. Upon graduation, students receive a B achelor of Science Degree in Education with endorsements in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Reading, which increases their value to school districts.

Strong password requirements (like using upper and lower cases, at least one number and maybe a special character) cause a lot of frustration for computer users. There is however, a way to manage your passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Lets start at the beginning the computers login screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password. Now sure, I know what some of you are thinking, I dont have to enter a password when my machine boots up so you must be wrong. Well, that isnt entirely true, its just that most machines will give the user the ability to either auto log on or not require a password at all at boot up. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. P eople dont want to be bothered entering their password every time so the system gets set up without it. Su re its convenient but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all y our stuff. Many people choose to go this route thinking that hey, Im the only one that uses this machine so I dont need it asking for a password every time but if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If its a desktop machine, it still wont protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the internet). The fact of the matter is that if y our machine is connected to the network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. Weak passwords are passwords that may be easy to remember but they are often short words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. Passwords like god, monkey, or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember but they are also the first things that these password cracking utilities will try. Thats why many sites (and programs) will insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. MonKey!387 is a lot harder for someone to crack than just the word monkey. Su re, it may be a little more inconvenient but using a w eak password will just give y ou a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is in using one password for everything. The reasoning people use for this one is w ell, I cant remember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem. I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows login, email, etc., is convenient but a problem can arise if your password does get cracked its common practice for hackers to try that same username and password pair everywhere. Again, there are tools out there that will allow someone to enter a username and password and the program then goes and tries them on hundreds of sites (like AOL and Facebook) and then provides the hacker a list of all the sites where the password works. Using the same password everywhere is one of the ways hackers are able to take over all of the services that you use. It may be a bit inconvenient but using a different password for every site is a lot safer than using one password everywhere. Earlier in this column I mentioned that there is a free solution out there that solves these issues. Open up your browser and pull up www.keepass.com. Keepass is a free (open source) program that will allow you to store and manage all of your passwords in one place so y ou dont have to rely on post it notes all over your desk. U se Keepass to create unique strong passwords for all of y our sites and you wont need to sacrifice security for convenience.

Troy McDonald, vice mayor, was present for the proclamation. From left: Maura Barry-Sorenson; Michael Busha, chairman; Marsha Powers; Mr. McDonald; Rebecca Negron; Laurie Gaylord, Superintendent; and Michael DiTerlizzi, vice chairman. In response to the Snowbirds rantNo not all snowbirds are alike. However, as someone who works in the restaurant business one thing I would like to tell the snowbirds is that we in the south dont possess the "entitlement" mentality. When you go out to eat, dont treat food servers as your servants. They are hardworking people who at times have to wear a fake smile because of your attitude. Put your entitlement attitude in a box and send it back to your northern address. When you go out to a restaurant along the water and want to sit outside, there are elements food servers have no control over like Mother Nature, and others who are sitting outside. Yes, we value your business here, just not the entitlement mentality that you possess. That and youre here for a short period of time. I write this because I hear food servers talking about the rudeness of the snowbirds all the time. Perhaps if the shoe was on the other foot snowbirds would r ethink about their demands. Oh, and we are not union down here either. Unions are nothing more than socialized workforce who cant think for themselves. More on snowbirdsDoes Hawaii have a large sign at each airport saying Go home, snow birds? There are 50 United States and this is a free country. What a sorry person that must be, denying anyone the right to visit his Florida. Spend six months up in the ice and snow, and maybe you will understand the need for warmth and freedom to drive without risking y our life. And more on snowbirdsMy R ant is for the person writing 'Go home, snow birds.' I get the impression this person may be jealous that they don't have a second home. I know a lot of snow birds and they are quite nice, actually people, just like we are. They are not as fortunate as us to live in such a beautiful climate all year long. And whether you like to admit it or not they do help the economy, that's what happens when you live in an area where tourists like to come, visit, and yes, some do stay awhile. How would you feel if you went north every summer and were treated like you are treating them? Lighten up, you don't own Florida.Regarding Pets in PublicTo the person who wrote the Pets in Public Places rant I say, really, with all that is going on in this country, youre worried about a few people who have pets in public place. I say, "You Need a Life." Years ago I went to Germany for two weeks. I was surprised at how many dogs were in the cafe's. They believe they were better than children. I might dispute that, but for many, their dogs are their children. My dog goes with me most places, if it wasn't for my dog, I may not be here. I hit a low in my life and I knew no one would love him like I would. So, I changed my life. M ost dogs will stay by their master and don't bother a sole. Yes, there are always a few. I have traveled to many states and there are many places that are pet friendly. My words for you are, stay home, because people are working on making the Treasure Coast, pet friendly.More on petsI have concerns regarding the article, "Pets in Public P laces." The author claims he loves and has had dogs and cats. If that is true, how can he feel disgusted with dogs being allowed at an outside cafe and in a dog stroller? To be disgusted by the presence of a dog while eating makes me wonder where he kept his dog or cat while he ate. Chained outside? Dogs need and want to be socialized. In closing, life is too short. It's really not productive to be so mean spirited. How does the author feel about young children in public places? Lets just live and let live as we all have so much to be thankful for so lets not dwell on the little stuff.A response to pets in public placesIn r esponse to pets in public: I do not have a dog; however I would rather see a dog in a restaurant, or in public instead of the increasingly more frequent disgusting humans that have no respect for others. In our rapidly more informal society, people dress in revealing clothing with grotesque bodies. They wear T-shirts with lewd sayings and suggestions. Many look like they go out after just r olling out of bed, they don't even bother to comb their hair or change their clothing, or bother to don clothing than matches or is free of stains or dirt. Many people don't even feel the need to have their trousers cover their buttocks. As far as the purported odors from the dogs, some folks should not subject other humans to their gross habits and foul smelling hair and bodies. Have you looked at humans lately, supposedly representing the height of evolution?W elfare and the holidaysW ell, the holidays are upon us and its sad to say all the single mothers out there with a couple of kids, who are struggling to keep a roof over their head and food on the table at the cost of tax payers, (brought to you by big government), and welfare. Once again the public is being asked to provide holiday dinners and toys for those less fortunate. Well people, open your eyes during the course of the years you will see some of these women driving pretty nice vehicles and wearing tattoos, which is stuff most working people cant afford. They will subject themselves to living in hostile areas, and so forth but they'll get lavish things for themselves that they wouldnt normally have if they didnt have a subsidized income or cheating their kids out of a lot. They just keep the ball rolling at the expense of others for their own selfish purpose. So my question to the mothers who self-indulge, do you know what kind of problems you bring into the community with ill-fated thought s of having multiple kids just to get a welfare check. And welfare people who dropped out school and who never even made it to high school, who wants others to pick up your tab in life theres a lot of programs out there that are free. Welfare was never meant to be a career choice, Get that lazy mind moving because someday the welfare system may not be there. Its a shame Fort Pierce is such a nice city but has huge cultural differences. To those who are just plain lazy: welfare should be made into a charity, only contribute to it if you want. I bet the women wouldnt be so quick to produce newborns that they cant afford to pay for in the first place. very sad. Got something to say?

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Stewart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal Highway in Lake Park. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.Ir eceive a lot of emails, calls, and letters every week from victims of car dealers who were taken advantage of in buying, leasing, and servicing their cars. They mostly call to ask what they can do to get all or some of their money back. These victims fall into different categories: (1) The elderly, often widows. (2) The very young, usually buying their first car. (3) Those who dont speak or understand English well. (4) The uneducated. (5) People with bad credit. (6) Everybody else (1) The elderly, especially widows, are the most victimized. The reasons for this are that Florida, especially South Florida, is a retirement state. Baby boomers and pre-baby boomers make up a disproportionately large percentage of Floridas population. Not only that, but life expectancies have soared in recent y ears 81 for a woman and 76 for a man. M en usually predecease their wives. W omens role in the American culture is a great deal different than in the 1930s and 1940s. More often than not, the husband was not only the breadwinner, but the decision maker in the household. Wido ws of that era are often buying their first car today. Men and women in their 70s, 80s, and 90s (Yes, I have a lot of customers in their nineties) arent as sharp as they once were. Im 73 and Ill be the first to admit this. In my opinion, men and women of my age, and older, are more trusting. We cant forget the terrible disease, Alzheimers. Unless a court declares a person incompetent, a person with Alzheimers can legally buy a car in Florida and it happens all too often. This is one of the most despicable acts that some car dealers commit. (2) What chance does a teenager or kid in his 20s have when negotiating with a car salesman and his manager to buy a car? Usually its the parents who call me to tell me how their son or daughter was taken advantage of. I dont tell them this, but what Im thinking is Why did didnt they accompany them to the car dealership to advise them? (3) South Florida is not only a retirement area, but its a haven for immigrants from Cuba, Haiti, and South and Central America. Many of these are first generation Americans who have a difficult time with English or cant speak, r ead, or write English at all. These people are easy prey for unscrupulous car dealers. Can y ou imagine how difficult it would be for y ou to get a fair price on a car you were buying in a foreign country where you we re did not speak or understand the language? (4) Lets face it; there are too many Americans who never had the benefit of a proper education. We have too many high school dropouts and too many high school graduates who still cant read or write as well as they must to function in our society. Lack of a good education is one of Americas most serious problems and were seeing other countries like China, Japan, Germany and India pass us by in educating their children. Its almost criminal how the uneducated are exploited by car dealers advertising and sales tactics. How many car dealers TV advertisements have you seen that you laugh at, knowing that they are totally untrue, bait and switch to lure you into the dealership. You wonder who would believe that kind of nonsense. The reason that car dealers keep running those ads is because they work. (5) There are always people with bad credit who have to buy a car, especially in todays economy. In F lorida, without an effective mass transit system, a car is virtually a necessity to get to your job or find a job, not to mention the doctor, school, or the pharmacy. People with bad credit are at the mercy of the car dealer. The main thing on these peoples minds is not how good a price or a car can I buy or how low an interest rate, but can they be financed? Knowing this, car dealers will charge whatever price and interest rate the lender will let them get away with. People with bad credit almost always pay dealers a higher profit than those with good credit. (6) The title to this article asks the question, Who should be held r esponsible for car dealers ripping off customers? For categories (1) through (5), the answer is our regulators and our lawmakers. But for the last category, Everybody else, its themselves. Of course, it goes without saying that the car dealers who do this are responsible too. But who doesnt know that most car dealers do business this way? Who doesnt know that car dealers perennially rank last on the annual Gallup Honesty and Ethics in Pr ofessions poll? I recently received an email from a woman who fell in none of the first five categories above. She was terribly victimized by a very unethical car dealer from whom she bought two used cars on the same night. Her email asked me for advice on what she should do. Of course the horse was out of the barn and this makes things more difficult. This woman did not ask for or receive a CarF ax report on either used car. Nor did she take either car to her mechanic for approval. She clearly didnt investigate the dealer for reputation. She didnt check any sources like Consumer Reports for recommended used cars. She did not shop and compare prices for similar cars and the list of did nots goes on. If you dont do your due diligence when you buy a car you are equally culpable with the car dealer who took advantage of y ou. At this point, I will shamelessly plug my book, Confessions of a Recovering Car D ealer. I say shamelessly because 100 percent of the proceeds from my book go to charity. You can buy this book at Amaz on.com. It will tell you everything you need to know about how not to be ripped off by a car dealer.

It s getting to the time when many of us will be decorating our trees for the holidays. A great alternative to an artificial tree and/or a live tree is a Norfolk I sland pine. They are available at most retailers and come in several sizes. Some even come already decorated and ready to go. The Norfolk Island pine does require a well-lit area of y our home if you are going to keep it indoors for an extended period of time. These trees have distinctly flat branches and short soft needles. These trees thrive in humid envir onments which makes them r ight at home in Florida. The soil conditions for this tree should be on the moist side. A sure sign the tree is not getting enough moisture is when you start to see a lot of dead lower branches. The No r folk pine does not regenerate its lost limbs or needles so it is important to stay on a steady watering schedule. If the tree is over watered, you will begin to see areas of bright yellow needles that fall off easily. To avoid this condition, be sure the plant is not standing in water. If you purchase a tree with foil wrap on it, be sure to slit the foil so water can drain from the pot. It is not recommended that the trees be pruned as the plant can lose its symmetrical shape. If y ou are one of the many Americans who are buying a live tree this year, here are a few tips to help you with the process. Since live trees in our area are trucked very long distances to their destination, picking out the freshest looking tree is extremely important. Make sure your tree is green with minimal brown branches. Check the needles of the tree and be sure that they are flexible and do not fall off when you brush the branches. Another good check is to bounce the tree lightly on the cut end to see how aggressively the leaves fall off the branches. Av oid trees that shed leaves aggressively with this procedure. Another point to consider is the location the tree will be placed. Be sure to get accurate measurements of the area so you can get a tree that is tailored to its location. Y ou have finally picked out y our prize tree so now whats next? The most important task is to get your tree in its stand and located where it will spend the remainder of the season. If it has not been done at the place of purchase, cut off about an inch from the bottom the tree before mounting in the stand. This will greatly aid the tree in absorbing water. Once the tree is mounted, be sure to add water immediately. The sooner all this is done the better. Now its time to decor ate your new tree with all the goodies you have been collecting the past couple of we eks. Use caution when using lights especially if you use the larger C-7 type lights. As long as the tree remains moist and the needles pliable, the tree will not be a huge fire hazard. As the tree ages and you get near the end of the season, more caution is advised since the tree structure will become drier in nature. Now that all the work is done, the time has come to sit back with your favorite beverage and enjoy your masterpiece!

If you dont already have the proper amounts of life and disability insurance in place, put it on your To Do list for 2014. Also, if you havent taken steps to protect yo urself from the considerable costs of long-term care, such as an extended nursing home stay, consult with your financial professional, who can suggest the appropriate protection or investment vehicles. You may never need such care, but thats a chance you may not want to take and the longer you wait, the more expensive your protection options may become. Dont overreact to market volatility. Too many people head to the investment sidelines during market downturns. But if youre not invested, then you miss any potential market gains and the biggest gains are often realized at the early stages of the r ally. Focus on the long term.

annually. Thats where the divide is, Ms. Sabol said. Teachers want to keep their job security but want a raise, too. W e want everyone to be treated fairly and the contracts we have to be honored, said Pam Kessler, third grade teacher at B essey Creek Elementary and president of the teachers union. S he said that she agrees that teachers should be evaluated, but fairly and by knowledgeable individuals but they shouldnt be forced to give up job security to claim deserved raises. Ms. Kessler said the new state law and the evaluation system it is based on is unfair and that they are trying to fight for each teachers share of the funds allocated by Governor Scott no matter what contract they have. Te achers would also like to see a more even salary schedule in the current step program that dictates how much and how often teachers receive raises. The MCSD and MCEA have each brought suggestions to the table, both parties labeling the others propositions unacceptable or too costly. When the MCEAs final offer was r ejected, they declared an impasse on Nov. 25 and filed with Public Employees Relations Commission this week to help resolve the stalemate. They can, however, agree on one thing: that settling quickly will benefit everyone. I think we have a lot of goals in common, Ms. S abol said. Our main goal is to get teachers their money as soon as possible. I t shouldnt have taken this long, Ms. Kessler said. The next step involves either selecting a costly magistrate to make a recommendation that the parties can either accept or reject or conduct a hearing with the school board whose decision would be binding. Ms. Kessler hopes they can go directly to the school board to plead their case face to face, but Ms. S abol hopes to forgo those possibilities that can take months to resolve by continuing negotiations to r each a solution that everyone can be happy with. N either can say exactly when an agreement might be reached. W ith the holidays quickly approaching, the Independent Community B ankers of America and Ma r ine Bank & Trust Company offer consumers tips to consider if they are planning to make any of their holiday purchases online. E ven though the holiday season can be quite busy, its never too busy to ensure that your personal information is safe when shopping online, said Bill P enney, President and CEO of Marine Bank. The total financial loss attributed to identity theft in 2013 is estimated to be $21 billion, according to the Department of Justice and Javelin Strategy and R esearch. Consumers need to be on high alert this holiday season, and any time they choose to make purchases online, to avoid falling victim to identity theft and to protect their sensitive financial information. W ith that in mind, ICBA and Marine Bank offer the following tips: Make sure your computer and browser are secure. Set your firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware software to automatically update and scan your computer. Dont create passwords that include easily accessible personal information, such as mothers maiden name or date of birth. I nstead, use something unique that only you know.

Local actresses will also grace the stage for Maltz J upiter Theatres production of Annie. The beloved musical about a redheaded orphan girl named Annie is brimming with familiar tunes like Tomorrow and Y oure Never Fully Dressed W ithout a Smile, but at its core it is about family and finding love in an unlikely place. I t s a perfect holiday show, said Andrew Kato, producing artistic director at the theatre. B ut audiences can expect some surprises if they arrive with visions of the popular movie musical dancing in their heads. Like many of Maltz J upiter Theatres productions, the show has been r einvented to offer a brand new experience while maintaining the honest and identifiable characters people have come to love. I t s a beautifully rendered honest and re-imagined production, Mr. Kato MARTIN COUNTY For an unexpected twist on the traditional Christmas program, the Barn Theatre in S tuart is the place to be. Their holiday show, Christmas Angels and H onky-Tonk Cowboys, will be a festive production to r emember with its mix of songs that will have audiences stomping their feet and reveling in the spirit of the season. The first act is full of country-western theme music like Grandma got r un over by a reindeer and the appropriate Come see whats happenin at the barn. The second act will introduce more traditional tunes like Mary did you know and Silent Night. I t s going to be a more fun type Christmas show, said director Jim Docter who started planning the original revue six months ago. He wanted to offer audiences a holiday show that combined the sacred music that people love with fun, playful tunes that put smiles on their faces. After seeing holiday program after holiday program last year, some of which we re a little bland with all traditional music to some that offered none of the familiar tunes and left him wanting more, he wanted to create a show that was different and fun, but heartwarming, too. I wanted to do a show that appealed to a lot of people, Mr. Docter said. A ccording to Mr. Docter and his cast, it will be a show the likes of which audiences have never seen. I t s almost like youre at a big Christmas party, said J ack Brenner, a tenor in the show. I t s light and yet meaningful, said Susan Ledbetter who is performing at the Ba rn Theatre for the first time. Mr. Brenner and Ms. Ledbetter round out the cast that includes all ages of singers and dancers with a wide range of talents and theyre all having a blast. The fun on stage will be contagious, Mr. Brenner said. And with the dancing, candles and props to thrill audiences, it offers more than the sounds of the season, but something festive upon which to gaze, too. The family event plays for one weekend only, Dec. 1315. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children and can be purchased online at www.barn-theatre.com or by calling the box office at (772) 287-4884. I can honestly say everyone will enjoy this show, Mr. Docter said.

It has all the makings of a memorable night at the theatre, including a dog that, according to Mary Elizabeth Rich, a cast member from Port St. Lucie, will melt y our heart. Ms. Rich has performed professionally all over the country and Europe for 20 y ears, but loves the Matltz J upiter Theatre since settling down in the area a few years ago. I t s like my second home, Ms. Rich said. She is also teaching at the theatres Conservatory of Performing Arts. There are a few younger actresses from the area strutting their stuff on stage, too, including Sophia Liano, 9 of S tuart; Chloe Larabie, 12 of Ve ro B each; and Solana Rudnitsky, 11 of Stuart. All three were thrilled to be selected from hundreds of children at the theatres First S tep to Stardom auditions where they sang and danced their way to a place on stage. I was jumping around the r oom, Chloe said when she heard the news that she got a part. She is understudy for the Character Kate, an orphan. Annie is one of those productions that every little girl wants to be a part of, Mr. K ato said. It s certainly true for Solana who has auditioned multiple times for a shot at a role and is the understudy for the character July. I m so privileged to be one of the few who got into the show, Solana said. I m really excited. Its been a blast, said Sophia who is playing Tessie. N one of the girls are novices when it comes to stage acting, but all of them dream of Broadway and, according to Mr. Kato, this opportunity to work side by side with professionals is a big step in the right direction. Annie will be a treat for all ages, a fun, heartfelt production perfectly suited for this time of year. This will be a musical that people will talk about for y ears to come, Mr. Kato said.

Buy a Membership for Y our Loved One084835 www .StuartShootingCenter .com Despite the rain and wind, the fish are still biting We ve had another w eek of wind and r ain, not a lot of r ain, but rain nonetheless. Im not sure if Im ready for winter, but the fish are. Off shore it is sailfish season, with cooler temperatures and a mix of water condition yes, defiantly winter. The wind kept most anglers inside, but there we re a few who just had to go, and catch fish they did. M ost started at 70-feet, that was the area where the waves were not as close and one could see what was going on. South of the S t. Lucie inlet, not quite to the tower, was the favored area. S ails were plenty and the dolphin bite was excellent, mix in a few small kings and one can see enough was enough. S eas were sporty, but the conditions were perfect if y ou are a sailfish fan. Throw in a hand full of nice dolphin, and fishing has been good for the anglers. Now if the seas would slo w do wn, an old man like me might give it a tr y Ther e w er e few days in the w eek for the sur f fans to get a line w et. F our ounce and cut baits top the list. B lue fish and S panish mac s made up most of the catch with some legal pompano for the long casters T ime was not an issue; we just had to wait for the wind to slo w Over cast skies all w eek gave anglers that option. N ot many pompano this w eek because not many anglers ar e quite r eady for this winter fishing, but the P ompano ar e definitely with us River fishing was ex cellent all w eek with lots of big tr out r epor ted. F r om Little M ud south to the S ail F ish F lats east or w est side it has been a per fect w eek for r eds and tr out. S hr imp was the favor ed bait this w eek with most fish being ov er the slot.

You've finally finished the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers. The rest of the family has done all of the late night, early morning shopping with the crowds and y ou've managed to avoid all of the craziness. Now you r ealize that you have a week less this year to get your shopping done and you have no idea what to get the golfers on y our list. Have no fear Santa J ames is here. Golfers should mark their golf balls so that they may be easily identified. There are two products that allow you to easily do just that, and put a little bit of personality into the marking as well. T in Cup (www.tincup.com ) is a system that enables you to Make your Ma rk with a personalized ball marker using the logo or design of your choice. You can pick from the many designs on the website or contact them to have your own design made into a Tin Cup. To mark your ball, you simply slip the ball into the cup. Then, using a fine point marker, fill in the stencil and you have a personalized mark. The cup alone costs less than $20, and kits, available for $30 includes the cup, two markers, a bag clip and a leather pouch. Golfdotz ( www.golfdotz.com) is the brainchild of entrepreneur D avid Poole who believes that golfers want something more than a bland, boring ink dot to mark their ball. Golfdotz is a small sticker that comes in a large variety of designs. These highly-detailed designs simply rub onto the ball and stay stuck through most all playing conditions. Cost is $6 for 18 dotz. If that old driver is looking a bit worn, or you really want to show support for your favorite college, Club Crown ( www.clubcrown.com) has the perfect product. Club Crown is a professionally installed high-tech film that will change the look of any driver, wood or hybrid. The film is removable should y ou wish to change it after a while, yet it holds up to normal play. The look is quite stunning. Y ou can choose from animal prints, camouflage, argyles, carbon fiber, flags, flames, plaids, stripes, and more. They even have many college and U.S. Military logos as well. Cost is around $40. S ometimes a fun round of golf with your usual bunch can turn boring. I discovered a great card game that brings a lot of fun and competitiveness to your round. Iquest Golf ( www.iquest.com) adds a fun twist to your round. The deck contains 14 Club Cards, which determine which clubs y ou will get to play that particular hole with, and four Strategy Cards, which are used to either help you or hinder an opponent. You can iQuest on any number of holes you choose. I magine having to putt with a 3-wood, or play a par-5 using only your 9-iron. Better y et, use the Steal a Club Str ategy Card to take your opponent's sand wedge from him forcing him to use a 7iron from that green-side bunker. Cost is under $20. O lympia Sports (available through amazon.com and S ears) has several indoor putting games. The company's 9 H ole Putting Game features nine cups with flags that you can set up inside your home. Y ou can then use your sofa, chairs, even the dog's dish to create hazards between the hole and where you start. Cost is $36. The best way to lower your score is to make more putts. The best putting product that I have tried comes from B oomerang ( www.boomgolf.com). The B oomerang teaches you to hit both lag and aggressive putts. The way the 'game works is you hit the first putt trying to stop it in the cup at the top of the sloping Boomerang. Y our next putt needs to be more aggressive to knock the first ball out of the shallow cup and return both balls down the slope to your feet. I t's much harder than it looks! The 10-inch mats that lead up to the Boomerang is available in nine different speeds, allowing you to almost exactly duplicate the speed of your greens at home. The entire putting pack is less than $90 and includes a DVD with lessons and drills to improve y our putting performance. A dditional mats are available as well so you can hone your putting skill on multiple speed greens. I've found that the key to buying gifts for golfers is to make them fun and to have them fit the golfer's personality. Stay away from the coal. Contact James Stammer at stammergolf@yahoo.com.

Do your best to pitch in. PORT ST. LUCIE Baseball is a huge sport not only in Florida but especially in Po rt S t. Lucie. While Little League Baseball only lasts a few months of the year, there is whole other world of Tr avel Baseball that never ends. Travel Baseball teams are made of the best of the best in a particular area that compete with teams all of the country. Team Easton is a travel baseball team for nineyear olds based out of S portsmans Park in Port St. Lucie. T eam Easton was started about a year ago by local baseball player Tony Germano. "Most people don't even know there is home grown Tr avel Baseball Team consisting of the best 9 year olds and under here on the Treasure Coast said Mr. Germano of Port St. Lucie. "We r eally have something special here. It is rare to have so much talent on a baseball team and even more unbelievable that they are only 9 y ears old and from Port St. Lucie." M any travel baseball teams pull players from other cities across the state and even from other states to make up a great team. T eam Easton is made up of local players who have demonstrated outstanding skills that can take them a long way. "We take pride in knowing we don't have to bring kids in from other towns across the state or fly kids in from different states as many teams do to compete at various tournaments," said Mr. Germano. "My coaching staff and I take a lot of pride in working with these kids and their talents developing them into phenomenal baseball players". Tr avel baseball is a huge commitment for the players and parents. It is expensive to enter tournaments, rent fields for practice, equipment, umpires along with the many unseen expenses associated with travel baseball. When they are not practicing or playing, they spend our time in front of grocery stores trying to help raise money for our team. I t would be nice to have some businesses or some generous sponsors to help as other teams but we are glad that our kids learn to take pride in knowing how much money and dedication it takes to be on a travel team,Mr. Germano said. T eam Easton won second place in the state Championship in Kissimmee and last week, won the Daytona B each Bash 9U Championship in which teams from all over the state were invited to compete. The team will now be going to the ESPN Winter W orld Series Dec. 27 through Jan. 1 to compete with teams from all over the country. To help support Team Easton,contact Tony Germano at (772) 216-5970.

T IPS OR GIFTS?MARTIN COUNTY The Library F oundation of Martin County inducted three new members last month to help fulfill their mission of acquiring and administering funds to enrich library services and facilities. Christine DelVecchio, a private client adviser at U.S. Trust, Bank of America; Wesley R. Harvin II, Esq. of the law firm Harvin & Harvin; and Charles Cleaver, vice president and CFO at Martin Health Systems we re all welcomed to the board at the foundation's annual meeting. The local libraries are supported by local taxes, but those funds don't supply everything the libraries need, so the Foundation fills in the gaps with various fundraising projects. Over the last 20 years the nonprofit has raised more than nine million dollars for the libraries in Ma r tin County, a number Suzanne H orstman, executive director of the Library Foundation of Martin C ounty, believes is a testament to how much the community loves their libraries. The group organizes events like B ookMania!, gives out the annual K iplinger Literacy Award, and identifies sources of philanthropy in the community so the libraries in Martin County can receive upgrades and enhancements like new computers and capital improvements. "W e call it a public-private partnership," said Ms. Horstman. These ambassadors to the library system each have a special interest in the programs and services offered by the library and all are passionate about what the library does. "I want to do my best to support the already successful programs and plans," Mr. Harvin said. He is excited about participating in the tutoring programs at some of the branches, math and science in particular. Ms. DelVecchio is looking forward to focusing on inviting parents and children to become more involved at the library, a mission T eacher negotiations at an impasse MARTIN COUNTY The Martin County School District and the Ma r tin County Education Association have reached an impasse in negotiations but hope to resolve their differences as quickly as possible for the good of the teachers. S ince Sept. 18, the groups have engaged in six sessions to negotiate salary issues, contract language and new state statutes and what it will mean for teachers' pay. Included in the discussions are the 3.35 million dollars Governor Scott allotted to Martin County teachers and how those funds will be distributed. Also being discussed is the change in Florida state law from an experience-based salary schedule to performance based pay for educators. K im Sabol, the district's staff attorney and chief negotiator, thinks that new law is part of what's causing the delay in reaching a solution, partially because it r equires teachers to relinquish their job security. ""It's a big paradigm shift from what teachers are used to so there's been some r esistance," Ms. S abol said. A ccording to Ms. S abol, teachers can choose to be grandfathered into the old law and keep their current contracts, but they won't be eligible for the pay increases that come with the new performance based contracts that are renewedThe fourth annual Beach 2 Bar 5k, a race from Stuart Beach to Carson's T avern in Stuart, benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

she feels personally invested in with two kids of her o wn. Mr. Cleaver plans to use his financial experience to help Martin County Libraries in any way he can, including continuing to advance library technologies. "T hey will assist in making our library system even better," Ms. Horstman said. "W e have some really great libraries and we just want to get people there and involved," Ms. DelVecchio said. They were recommended to the position by current board members who noticed that they stood out as leaders among the community. Ms. Horstman said she and Priscilla Baldwin, president of the Library Foundation of Martin County, are thrilled with the appointments and can't wait to see what they do in their threey ear terms. "W e hope they bring fresh ideas and new vision to the Library Foundation," Ms. H orstman said. Literacy and STEM programs will be a focus in the coming months as Christine, Wesley and Charles get settled in to make the Martin County Library System the best it can be, because as the Foundation website states, "Libraries are more than books." TREASURE COAST Making sure that everyone in your life is smiling during the holidays can be a source of stress. B esides buying presents for the little ones and baking pies for parties at work, making sure that those who provide y ear-round services are taken care of during the holidays is usually top on the to-do list. Those who make life easier, such as mail and newspaper carriers, pool and lawn maintenance workers, hair stylists, y our child's teacher and housekeepers, should be given a special token of thanks. Knowing how much or what to give can be overwhelming. He re is a list from www.realsimple.com of ideal ways to show appreciation to those who do so much.Give a tip toB uilding superintendent: $20 to $100, depending on how responsive and helpful y our super has been. D oorman: $20 to $100. If there are multiple doormen, $15 or more for each is fine; if y ou have only one, then the higher end of that range is more appropriate, especially if he is friendly and does a lot for you. The average holiday tip is $50. Elevator operator/other building staff: $20 to $50. Check with your building association to see if there is a holiday tip pool that is shared by all of the building's employees. Landscaper/gardener: $20 to $50. If he or she comes frequently, give up to a week's pay. P ool cleaners: F or a regular crew, the price of one cleaning, to divide among themselves. If a different employee shows up each visit, holiday tipping is unnecessary. N ewspaper carrier: $10 to $30, or the equivalent of one month of the subscription price. Sometimes you can include a tip when you pay y our bill. Remember that adults usually do this job these days. H andyman: $15 to $40, depending on how much work you've had him do. Tr ash/recycling collectors: $10 to $30 each for private service; for public service, check your local municipality for regulations as some areas may not allow tipping.Buy a gift for yourAssistant: In addition to any end-of-the-year bonus, give a gift or gift card worth at least $50, depending on your position in the company and the assistant's length of service. Av oid perfume, clothing, or anything that could be perceived as too personal. B oss: While not necessary, a simple gift is a nice gesture. T alk to coworkers to see if they'd like to chip in to buy a gift card or a restaurant gift certificate. T eacher/tutor: Don't spend more than $25. Assuming the school allows gifts, give something such as a bookstore or r estaurant gift certificate, a picture frame, a coffee shop gift card, or a homemade gift from your child, accompanied by a hand-written thanky ou note. Gifts aren't as common at middle schools and high schools where each child has five or more teachers.

Financial resolutions for the New YearAbout 45 percent of Americans usually make New Year's r esolutions, according to a survey from the University of Scranton. But the same survey shows that only 8 percent of us actually keep our resolutions. Perhaps this low success rate isn't such a tragedy when our r esolutions involve things like losing a little weight or learning a foreign language. But when we make financial resolutions r esolutions that, if achieved, could significantly help us in our pursuit of our important long-term goals it's clearly worthwhile to make every effort to follow through. So what sorts of financial re solutions might you consider? Here are a few possibilities: Boost your contributions to your retirement plans. Each year, try to put in a little more to your IRA and your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored re tirement plans. These tax-advantaged accounts are good options for your re tirement savings strategy. Reduce your debts. It's not always easy to reduce y our debts, but make it a goal to finish 2014 with a smaller debt load than you had going into the new y ear. The lower your monthly debt payments, the more money you'll have to invest for retirement, college for your children (or grandchildren) and other important objectives. Build your emergency fund. Work on building an emergency fund" containing six to 12 months' worth of living expenses, with the money held in a liquid account that offers a high degree of preservation of principal. Without such a fund, you might be forced to dip into your long-term investments to pay for emergencies, such as a new furnace, a major car repair, and so on. You might not be able to finish creating your emergency fund in one y ear, but contribute as much as you can afford.

J oanna Bereda has always known she was meant for barbering from the time her father owned a barbershop in Canada. For 65 years he r an the business that Ms. Be r eda eventually took over. After moving to Florida and working at another barbershop for seven years, she thought it was about time she opened up her own so she could conduct business on her terms. So on Oct. 30 Ms. Bereda celebrated the opening of M axx's Shaving Room, named for her son who has been shaving his head for y ears. B ut with a 27-year background in the trade she wanted to offer more than a simple shave and haircut. S he wanted to offer a relaxing experience in an upscale setting for the most discerning gentlemen. "I wanted to create a place a man could call his own," Ms. Bereda said. M axx's Shaving Room is just that: a gentleman's barbershop that offers haircuts and traditional hot shaves, massages, manicures and pedicures, color, waxing, even shoe shining. She knows men are often uncomfortable with those services because they're typically only offered in places frequented by women, but they are no less deserving. "M ore and more men want to be taken care of and catered to," Ms. Bereda said, and she wants Maxx's to be the place that happens. S he specializes in slow, r elaxing, comforting hot shaves, a tradition she considers beautiful. "I modernized the barbering but kept the old traits of it," Ms. Bereda said. S he loves what she does, interacting with her clients and making them feel great complete, even and is thrilled to offer her services to a small town like Stuart that she has come to love.

F or any person male or female walking a mile in 4inch stiletto heels would be considered a feat (pun intended.) But that didn't stop hundreds of men throughout the Treasure Coast who stepped up to "Walk a Mile in H er Shoes" during the 2013 events coordinated by SafeS pace in Martin, St. Lucie and I ndian River counties. Du r ing the events, men are challenged to walk one mile in women's red high-heeled shoes. Most men quickly realize that it's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's a lighthearted way to get the community talking about something that's otherwise difficult to talk about: domestic violence. One walk was held in each of the three Treasure Coast counties during the month of O ctober to coincide with N ational Domestic Violence A wareness Month. SafeSpace, the only non-profit organization serving victims of domestic violence in the region, has been coordinating the "Walk a M ile in Her Shoes" events since 2010 in an effort to increase awareness and take steps towards ending domestic violence. What started with a handful of brave men has grown to nearly 400 law enforcement officials, community leaders, businessmen, fathers and sons who helped raise a total of $51,000 to provide victims of domestic violence with emergency shelter, education and support. "I t was remarkable to see how many people across the Tr easure Coast came together this year to raise awareness that domestic violence happens right in our own backyards," said Jill Borowicz, CEO of SafeSpace "We touched so many people through this event and without a doubt have saved lives in the process. Each $500 raised provides one week of safety for a family of three in the S afeSpace shelter." The 2013 events exceeded fundraising goals and also achieved record participation thanks in part to the enormous support from community leaders in all three counties. Local law enforcement and public safety officers switched out their boots for heels, while elected officials showed their constituents that domestic violence will not be tolerated in their communities. Another key to the success of the Walk A Mile events: dedicated co-chairs who not only helped coordinate logistics and recruit participants, but also could be seen about town donning red high heels to generate buzz and promote the walks. "A s first responders, police officers know all too well that domestic violence does not discriminate. This is one way that the community can come together and take a stand against this crime that affects one in four women," said Chief Deputy L. E. "Bud" S pencer co-chair of the Indian River County "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" event. P lans are underway to encourage more men across the Treasure Coast to step up for the 2014 "Walk a Mile in H er Shoes" events.

modest gift that shows your appreciation. Cash is not a good option. Be sure to check with the agency first, as some prohibit gifts. N ursing home employees: Check company policy. Cash is not appropriate, but something that can be shared among the staff, like chocolate, cookies, or flowers, is a great idea. Letter carrier/package courier: While nothing is expected, if you have a friendly relationship with the person, then a small gift or gift card in the $20 range is a nice gesture. Anything more valuable than that is prohibited by the United States Postal Service. FedEx allows tips or a gift worth up to $75. UPS does not have an official policy. N anny/au pair: A tip equal to one or two week's pay, plus a personal gift from your child(ren), such as a framed crayon or marker portrait showing the child's appreciation. Avoid kid-oriented gifts; an attractive handbag might score major points. Da y -care staff: $25 to $70 each for those who have direct contact with your child(ren), plus a small, personal gift from your offspring. If only one person takes care of your kids, shoot for the higher end of that range. A gift certificate is fine, but take the time to include a hand-written card.Give a tip or gift toBa b ysitter: C ash or a gift equal to one or two night's pay. A personal gift from your child(ren) is always appreciated as well. Cleaning lady: Up to one w eek's pay and/or a gift. D og walker: One week's pay and/or a gift. While tips are the norm, a down vest for winter walks, a massage, and other spa treatments are all thoughtful gift options. P et groomer: A tip or gift in the ballpark of the price of one session. H airstylist/manicurist/barber: The cost of one visit, or a gift of equivalent worth. If you deal with more than one person at a given establishment, give cash so they can split it among themselves.

Avoid giving chocolate, cookies, or other unhealthy foods. P ersonal caregiver: Up to a w eek's salary or a modest gift. M ost important, though, is that all holiday tips or gifts be accompanied by a handwritten "Happy Holidays" note. TREASURE COAST W ith Indian River State C ollege's introduction of a B achelor's Degree in Elementary Education, Treasure Coast residents can now complete all the courses they need to become an elementary school teacher within easy driving distance. Registration is now underway, with classes beginning Jan. 8. "B usy Treasure Coast residents juggling work and family responsibilities can now achieve their dream of becoming an elementary school teacher without leaving the area to complete their education," said Dr Ian Neuhard, director of IRSC Baccalaureate Programs. IRSC combines this convenience with many opportunities to develop teaching skills right in local schools." The IRSC program was launched in response to the strong demand for elementary school teachers in the region. Based on labor market data and a survey of local schools, between 100 to 200 job openings are projected annually in the four counties served by IRSC. Stressing the need for more teachers, the School Districts of St. L ucie, Martin, Indian River and Okeechobee counties submitted letters to the F lorida Department of E ducation indicating their support of a Bachelor's D egree in Elementary Education at IRSC. The program offers students the opportunity to participate in multiple practicums in local schools, culminating in student teaching. In addition, an innovative TeachLive simulator engages them in interaction with different types of students and behaviors. Upon graduation, students receive a B achelor of Science Degree in Education with endorsements in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Reading, which increases their value to school districts.

Strong password requirements (like using upper and lower cases, at least one number and maybe a special character) cause a lot of frustration for computer users. There is however, a way to manage your passwords without sacrificing security for convenience and the best part is the solution is available for free. Let's start at the beginning the computer's login screen. Whether you are running W indows, Mac, Linux or any of the other operating systems out there, when the system boots up it will look for a password. Now sure, I know what some of you are thinking, "I don't have to enter a password when my machine boots up so you must be wrong." Well, that isn't entirely true, it's just that most machines will give the user the ability to either auto log on or not require a password at all at boot up. This is one of those instances where people will sacrifice security for convenience. P eople don't want to be bothered entering their password every time so the system gets set up without it. Su re it's convenient but the problem is now anyone who sits in front of your machine and turns it on will be able to get in and have access to all y our stuff. Many people choose to go this route thinking that "hey, I'm the only one that uses this machine so I don't need it asking for a password every time" but if we are talking about a laptop (which is portable) that can be a disaster waiting to happen if it ever gets lost or stolen. If it's a desktop machine, it still won't protect you if there is a break in or some other unauthorized user gains access to your machine (either physically or gets in through the internet). The fact of the matter is that if y our machine is connected to the network then there should be a password in place to protect your files. The next area where people sacrifice security is in password strength. Weak passwords are passwords that may be easy to remember but they are often short words that can be cracked in a matter of minutes by any of the available password cracking utilities that are out there. Passwords like "god," monkey," or any other word found in the dictionary may be short and easy to remember but they are also the first things that these password cracking utilities will try. That's why many sites (and programs) will insist on including upper and lower cases, some numbers and even a special character or two. "MonKey!387" is a lot harder for someone to crack than just the word "monkey." Su re it may be a little more inconvenient but using a w eak password will just give y ou a false sense of security. The next shortcut people take is in using one password for everything. The reasoning people use for this one is "w ell, I can't remember a different password for everything so I just use the same one everywhere I go and never have a problem." I will be the first to admit, using the same password for the windows login, email, etc., is convenient but a problem can arise if your password does get cracked it's common practice for hackers to try that same username and password pair everywhere. Again, there are tools out there that will allow someone to enter a username and password and the program then goes and tries them on hundreds of sites (like AOL and Facebook) and then provides the hacker a list of all the sites where the password works. Using the same password everywhere is one of the ways hackers are able to take over all of the services that you use. It may be a bit inconvenient but using a different password for every site is a lot safer than using one password everywhere. Earlier in this column I mentioned that there is a free solution out there that solves these issues. Open up your browser and pull up www.keepass.com Keepass is a free (open source) program that will allow you to store and manage all of your passwords in one place so y ou don't have to rely on post it notes all over your desk. U se Keepass to create unique strong" passwords for all of y our sites and you won't need to sacrifice security for convenience.

In response to the Snowbirds' rantNo not all snowbirds are alike. However, as someone who works in the restaurant business one thing I would like to tell the snowbirds is that we in the south don't possess the "entitlement" mentality. When you go out to eat, don't treat food servers as your servants. They are hardworking people who at times have to wear a fake smile because of your attitude. Put your entitlement attitude in a box and send it back to your northern address. When you go out to a restaurant along the water and want to sit outside, there are elements food servers have no control over like Mother Nature, and others who are sitting outside. Yes, we v alue your business here, just not the entitlement mentality that you possess. That and you're here for a short period of time. I write this because I hear food servers talking about the rudeness of the snowbirds all the time. Perhaps if the shoe was on the other foot snowbirds would r ethink about their demands. Oh, and we are not union down here either. Unions are nothing more than socialized workforce who can't think for themselves. More on snowbirdsDoes Hawaii have a large sign at each airport saying Go home, snow birds? There are 50 United States and this is a free country. What a sorry person that must be, denying anyone the right to visit his Florida. Spend six months up in the ice and snow, and maybe you will understand the need for warmth and freedom to drive without risking y our life. And more on snowbirdsMy R ant is for the person writing 'Go home, snow birds.' I get the impression this person may be jealous that they don't have a second home. I know a lot of snow birds and they are quite nice, actually people, just like we are. They are not as fortunate as us to live in such a beautiful climate all year long. And whether you like to admit it or not they do help the economy, that's what happens when you live in an area where tourists like to come, visit, and yes, some do stay awhile. How would you feel if you went north every summer and were treated like you are treating them? Lighten up, you don't own Florida.Regarding Pets in Public"To the person who wrote the "Pets in Public Places" rant I say, really, with all that is going on in this country, you're worried about a few people who have pets in public place. I say, "You Need a Life." Years ago I went to Germany for two weeks. I was surprised at how many dogs were in the cafe's. They believe they were better than children. I might dispute that, but for many, their dogs are their children. My dog goes with me most places, if it wasn't for my dog, I may not be here. I hit a low in my life and I knew no one would love him like I would. So, I changed my life. M ost dogs will stay by their master and don't bother a sole. Yes, there are always a few. I have traveled to many states and there are many places that are pet friendly. My words for you are, "stay home," because people are working on making the Treasure Coast, pet friendly.More on petsI have concerns regarding the article, "Pets in Public P laces." The author claims he loves and has had dogs and cats. If that is true, how can he feel disgusted with dogs being allowed at an outside cafe and in a dog stroller? To be disgusted by the presence of a dog while eating makes me wonder where he kept his dog or cat while he ate. Chained outside? Dogs need and want to be socialized. In closing, life is too short. It's really not productive to be so mean spirited. How does the author feel about young children in public places? Let's just live and let live as we all have so much to be thankful for so let's not dwell on the little stuff.A response to pets in public placesIn r esponse to pets in public: I do not have a dog; however I would rather see a dog in a restaurant, or in public instead of the increasingly more frequent disgusting humans that have no respect for others. In our rapidly more informal society, people dress in revealing clothing with grotesque bodies. They wear T-shirts with lewd sayings and suggestions. Many look like they go out after just r olling out of bed, they don't even bother to comb their hair or change their clothing, or bother to don clothing than matches or is free of stains or dirt. Many people don't even feel the need to have their trousers cover their buttocks. As far as the purported odors from the dogs, some folks should not subject other humans to their gross habits and foul smelling hair and bodies. Have you looked at humans lately, supposedly representing the height of evolution?W elfare and the holidaysW ell, the holidays are upon us and it's sad to say all the single mothers out there with a couple of kids, who are struggling to keep a roof over their head and food on the table at the cost of tax payers, (brought to you by big government), and welfare. Once again the public is being asked to provide holiday dinners and toys for those less fortunate. Well people, open your eyes during the course of the years you will see some of these women driving pretty nice vehicles and wearing tattoos, which is stuff most working people can't afford. They will subject themselves to living in hostile areas, and so forth but they'll get lavish things for themselves that they wouldn't normally have if they didn't have a subsidized income or cheating their kids out of a lot. They just keep the ball rolling at the expense of others for their own selfish purpose. So my question to the mothers who self-indulge, do you know what kind of problems you bring into the community with ill-fated thought s of having multiple kids just to get a welfare check. And welfare people who dropped out school and who never even made it to high school, who wants others to pick up your tab in life there's a lot of programs out there that are free. Welfare was never meant to be a career choice, Get that lazy mind moving because someday the welfare system may not be there. It's a shame Fort Pierce is such a nice city but has huge cultural differences. To those who are just plain lazy: welfare should be made into a charity, only contribute to it if you want. I bet the women wouldn't be so quick to produce newborns that they can't afford to pay for in the first place. very sad. Got something to say?

Earl Stewart is the owner and general manager of Earl Stewart Toyota in North P alm Beach.The dealership is located at 1215 N.Federal Highway in Lake Park. Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.Ir eceive a lot of emails, calls, and letters every week from victims of car dealers who were taken advantage of in buying, leasing, and servicing their cars. They mostly call to ask what they can do to get all or some of their money back. These victims" fall into different categories: (1) The elderly, often widows. (2) The very young, usually buying their first car. (3) Those who don't speak or understand English well. (4) The uneducated. (5) People with bad credit. (6) Everybody else (1) The elderly, especially widows, are the most victimized. The reasons for this are that Florida, especially South Florida, is a "retirement" state. Baby boomers and pre-baby boomers make up a disproportionately large percentage of Florida's population. Not only that, but life expectancies have soared in recent y ears 81 for a woman and 76 for a man. M en usually predecease their wives. W omen's role in the American culture is a great deal different than in the 1930s and 1940s. More often than not, the husband was not only the breadwinner, but the decision maker in the household. Wido ws of that era are often buying their first car today. Men and women in their 70s, 80s, and 90s (Yes, I have a lot of customers in their nineties) aren't as sharp as they once were. I'm 73 and I'll be the first to admit this. In my opinion, men and women of my age, and older, are more trusting. We can't forget the terrible disease, Alzheimer's. Unless a court declares a person incompetent, a person with Alzheimer's can legally buy a car in Florida and it happens all too often. This is one of the most despicable acts that some car dealers commit. (2) What chance does a teenager or kid in his 20s have when negotiating with a car salesman and his manager to buy a car? Usually it's the parents who call me to tell me how their son or daughter was taken advantage of. I don't tell them this, but what I'm thinking is "Why did didn't they accompany them to the car dealership to advise them?" (3) South Florida is not only a retirement area, but it's a haven for immigrants from Cuba, Haiti, and South and Central America. Many of these are first generation Americans who have a difficult time with English or can't speak, r ead, or write English at all. These people are easy prey for unscrupulous car dealers. Can y ou imagine how difficult it would be for y ou to get a fair price on a car you were buying in a foreign country where you we re did not speak or understand the language? (4) Let's face it; there are too many Americans who never had the benefit of a proper education. We have too many high school dropouts and too many high school graduates who still can't read or write as well as they must to function in our society. Lack of a good education is one of America's most serious problems and we're seeing other countries like China, Japan, Germany and India pass us by in educating their children. It's almost criminal how the uneducated are exploited by car dealers' advertising and sales tactics. How many car dealers' TV advertisements have you seen that you laugh at, knowing that they are totally untrue, "bait and switch" to lure you into the dealership. You wonder who would believe that kind of nonsense. The reason that car dealers keep running those ads is because they work. (5) There are always people with bad credit who have to buy a car, especially in today's economy. In F lorida, without an effective mass transit system, a car is virtually a necessity to get to your job or find a job, not to mention the doctor, school, or the pharmacy. People with bad credit are at the mercy of the car dealer. The main thing on these peoples' minds is not how good a price or a car can I buy or how low an interest rate, but can they be financed? Knowing this, car dealers will charge whatever price and interest rate the lender will let them get away with. People with bad credit almost always pay dealers a higher profit than those with good credit. (6) The title to this article asks the question, "Who should be held r esponsible for car dealers ripping off customers?" For categories (1) through (5), the answer is our regulators and our lawmakers. But for the last category, "Everybody else," it's themselves. Of course, it goes without saying that the car dealers who do this are responsible too. But who doesn't know that most car dealers do business this way? Who doesn't know that car dealers perennially rank last on the annual Gallup "Honesty and Ethics in Pr ofessions" poll? I recently received an email from a woman who fell in none of the first five categories above. She was terribly victimized by a very unethical car dealer from whom she bought two used cars on the same night. Her email asked me for advice on what she should do. Of course the "horse was out of the barn" and this makes things more difficult. This woman did not ask for or receive a CarF ax report on either used car. Nor did she take either car to her mechanic for approval. She clearly didn't investigate the dealer for reputation. She didn't check any sources like Consumer Reports for recommended used cars. She did not shop and compare prices for similar cars and the list of "did not's" goes on. If you don't do your due diligence when you buy a car you are equally culpable with the car dealer who took advantage of y ou. At this point, I will shamelessly plug my book, "Confessions of a Recovering Car D ealer." I say "shamelessly" because 100 percent of the proceeds from my book go to charity. You can buy this book at Amaz on.com. It will tell you everything you need to know about how not to be ripped off by a car dealer.

It' s getting to the time when many of us will be decorating our trees for the holidays. A great alternative to an artificial tree and/or a live tree is a Norfolk I sland pine. They are available at most retailers and come in several sizes. Some even come already decorated and ready to go. The Norfolk Island pine does require a well-lit area of y our home if you are going to keep it indoors for an extended period of time. These trees have distinctly flat branches and short soft needles. These trees thrive in humid envir onments which makes them r ight at home in Florida. The soil conditions for this tree should be on the moist side. A sure sign the tree is not getting enough moisture is when you start to see a lot of dead lower branches. The No r folk pine does not regenerate its lost limbs or needles so it is important to stay on a steady watering schedule. If the tree is over watered, you will begin to see areas of bright yellow needles that fall off easily. To avoid this condition, be sure the plant is not standing in water. If you purchase a tree with foil wrap on it, be sure to slit the foil so water can drain from the pot. It is not recommended that the trees be pruned as the plant can lose its symmetrical shape. If y ou are one of the many Americans who are buying a live tree this year, here are a few tips to help you with the process. Since live trees in our area are trucked very long distances to their destination, picking out the freshest looking tree is extremely important. Make sure your tree is green with minimal brown branches. Check the needles of the tree and be sure that they are flexible and do not fall off when you brush the branches. Another good check is to bounce the tree lightly on the cut end to see how aggressively the leaves fall off the branches. Av oid trees that shed leaves aggressively with this procedure. Another point to consider is the location the tree will be placed. Be sure to get accurate measurements of the area so you can get a tree that is tailored to its location. Y ou have finally picked out y our prize tree so now what's next? The most important task is to get your tree in its stand and located where it will spend the remainder of the season. If it has not been done at the place of purchase, cut off about an inch from the bottom the tree before mounting in the stand. This will greatly aid the tree in absorbing water. Once the tree is mounted, be sure to add water immediately. The sooner all this is done the better. Now it's time to decor ate your new tree with all the goodies you have been collecting the past couple of we eks. Use caution when using lights especially if you use the larger C-7 type lights. As long as the tree remains moist and the needles pliable, the tree will not be a huge fire hazard. As the tree ages and you get near the end of the season, more caution is advised since the tree structure will become drier in nature. No w that all the work is done, the time has come to sit back with your favorite beverage and enjoy your masterpiece!

If you don't already have the proper amounts of life and disability insurance in place, put it on your "To Do" list for 2014. Also, if you haven't taken steps to protect yo urself from the considerable costs of long-term care, such as an extended nursing home stay, consult with your financial professional, who can suggest the appropriate protection or investment vehicles. You may never need such care, but that's a chance you may not want to take and the longer you wait, the more expensive your protection options may become. Don't overreact to market volatility. Too many people head to the investment "sidelines" during market downturns. But if you're not invested, then you miss any potential market gains and the biggest gains are often realized at the early stages of the r ally. Focus on the long term. You can probably check your investment balance online, which means you can do it every day, or even several times a day but should you? If yo u' re following a strategy that's appropriate for your needs, goals, r isk tolerance and time horizon, you're already doing what you should be doing in the long run. So there's no need to stress y ourself over the shortterm movements that show up in your investment statements. Do whatever you can to turn these New Year's r esolutions into realities. Y our efforts could pay off w ell beyond 2014.

annually. That's where the divide is," Ms. Sabol said. Teachers want to keep their job security but want a raise, too. "W e want everyone to be treated fairly and the contracts we have to be honored," said Pam Kessler, third grade teacher at B essey Creek Elementary and president of the teacher's union. S he said that she agrees that teachers should be evaluated, but fairly and by knowledgeable individuals but they shouldn't be forced to give up job security to claim deserved raises. Ms. Kessler said the new state law and the evaluation system it is based on is unfair and that they are trying to fight for each teacher's share of the funds allocated by Governor Scott no matter what contract they have. Te achers would also like to see a more even salary schedule in the current step program that dictates how much and how often teachers receive raises. The MCSD and MCEA have each brought suggestions to the table, both parties labeling the other's propositions unacceptable or too costly. When the MCEA's final offer was r ejected, they declared an impasse on Nov. 25 and filed with Public Employees Relations Commission this week to help resolve the stalemate. They can, however, agree on one thing: that settling quickly will benefit everyone. "I think we have a lot of goals in common," Ms. S abol said. "Our main goal is to get teachers their money as soon as possible." "I t shouldn't have taken this long," Ms. Kessler said. The next step involves either selecting a costly magistrate to make a recommendation that the parties can either accept or reject or conduct a hearing with the school board whose decision would be binding. Ms. Kessler hopes they can go directly to the school board to plead their case face to face, but Ms. S abol hopes to forgo those possibilities that can take months to resolve by continuing negotiations to r each a solution that everyone can be happy with. N either can say exactly when an agreement might be reached. W ith the holidays quickly approaching, the Independent Community B ankers of America and Ma r ine Bank & Trust Company offer consumers tips to consider if they are planning to make any of their holiday purchases online. "E ven though the holiday season can be quite busy, it's never too busy to ensure that your personal information is safe when shopping online," said Bill P enney, President and CEO of Marine Bank. The total financial loss attributed to identity theft in 2013 is estimated to be $21 billion, according to the Department of Justice and Javelin Strategy and R esearch. Consumers need to be on high alert this holiday season, and any time they choose to make purchases online, to avoid falling victim to identity theft and to protect their sensitive financial information. W ith that in mind, ICBA and Marine Bank offer the following tips: Make sure your computer and browser are secure. Set your firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware software to automatically update and scan your computer. Don't create passwords that include easily accessible personal information, such as mother's maiden name or date of birth. I nstead, use something unique that only you know. Don't give personal information over the phone, through the mail or on the Internet unless you know whom you're dealing with and preferably only if yo u' ve initiated the contact. Ne ver give out Social Secur ity or driver's license numbers. If you must share personal information, confirm that you are dealing with a legitimate organization. If you receive an email asking for personal information, do not hit the r eply button or click on any link in the email. I nstead, go directly to the sender's site by typing in its w ebsite address. Look for secure sites with an "s" in the URL (https://) and a closedpadlock icon on the Web page when making purchases. These websites are secure. Always double-check the URL to be sure you are shopping with the company you intended to shop with. A simple typo can help identity thieves. "T he most important thing is our customers' safety and financial security," said Mr. Penney. "If any customer has questions about the security of their financial information, our team at Marine Bank is more than happy to answer any problems or concerns. We want personal information to be safe and protected at all times." M arine Bank & Trust Company is Vero Beach's only remaining locally o wned community bank. They have two locations, one on the barrier island at 571 Beachland Blvd.,and one on the mainland at 1450 U.S.1.They may be r eached directly at (772) 231-6611 or (772) 7786713.

Local actresses will also grace the stage for Maltz J upiter Theatre's production of "Annie." The beloved musical about a redheaded orphan girl named Annie is brimming with familiar tunes like "Tomorrow" and "Y ou're Never Fully Dressed W ithout a Smile," but at its core it is about family and finding love in an unlikely place. "I t' s a perfect holiday show," said Andrew Kato, producing artistic director at the theatre. B ut audiences can expect some surprises if they arrive with visions of the popular movie musical dancing in their heads. Like many of Maltz J upiter Theatre's productions, the show has been r einvented to offer a brand new experience while maintaining the honest and identifiable characters people have come to love. "I t' s a beautifully rendered honest and re-imagined production," Mr. Kato MARTIN COUNTY For an unexpected twist on the traditional Christmas program, the Barn Theatre in S tuart is the place to be. Their holiday show, Christmas Angels and H onky-Tonk Cowboys," will be a festive production to r emember with its mix of songs that will have audiences stomping their feet and reveling in the spirit of the season. The first act is full of country-western theme music like "Grandma got r un over by a reindeer" and the appropriate "Come see what's happenin' at the barn." The second act will introduce more traditional tunes like "Mary did you know" and "Silent Night." "I t' s going to be a more fun type Christmas show," said director Jim Docter who started planning the original revue six months ago. He wanted to offer audiences a holiday show that combined the sacred music that people love with fun, playful tunes that put smiles on their faces. After seeing holiday program after holiday program last year, some of which we re a little bland with all traditional music to some that offered none of the familiar tunes and left him wanting more, he wanted to create a show that was different and fun, but heartwarming, too. "I wanted to do a show that appealed to a lot of people," Mr. Docter said. A ccording to Mr. Docter and his cast, it will be a show the likes of which audiences have never seen. "I t' s almost like you're at a big Christmas party," said J ack Brenner, a tenor in the show. "I t' s light and yet meaningful," said Susan Ledbetter who is performing at the Ba rn Theatre for the first time. Mr. Brenner and Ms. Ledbetter round out the cast that includes all ages of singers and dancers with a wide range of talents and they're all having a blast. The fun on stage will be contagious," Mr. Brenner said. And with the dancing, candles and props to thrill audiences, it offers more than the sounds of the season, but something festive upon which to gaze, too. The family event plays for one weekend only, Dec. 1315. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children and can be purchased online at www.barn-theatre.com or by calling the box office at (772) 287-4884. "I can honestly say everyone will enjoy this show," Mr. Docter said.

"It has all the makings of a memorable night at the theatre," including a dog that, according to Mary Elizabeth Rich, a cast member from Port St. Lucie, will melt y our heart. Ms. Rich has performed professionally all over the country and Europe for 20 y ears, but loves the Matltz J upiter Theatre since settling down in the area a few years ago. "I t' s like my second home," Ms. Rich said. She is also teaching at the theatre's Conservatory of Performing Arts. There are a few younger actresses from the area strutting their stuff on stage, too, including Sophia Liano, 9 of S tuart; Chloe Larabie, 12 of Ve ro B each; and Solana Rudnitsky, 11 of Stuart. All three were thrilled to be selected from hundreds of children at the theatre's First S tep to Stardom auditions where they sang and danced their way to a place on stage. "I was jumping around the r oom," Chloe said when she heard the news that she got a part. She is understudy for the Character "Kate," an orphan. Annie is one of those productions that every little girl wants to be a part of," Mr. K ato said. It 's certainly true for Solana who has auditioned multiple times for a shot at a role and is the understudy for the character "July." "I 'm so privileged to be one of the few who got into the show," Solana said. "I 'm really excited. It's been a blast," said Sophia who is playing "Tessie." N one of the girls are novices when it comes to stage acting, but all of them dream of Broadway and, according to Mr. Kato, this opportunity to work side by side with professionals is a big step in the right direction. Annie" will be a treat for all ages, a fun, heartfelt production perfectly suited for this time of year. This will be a musical that people will talk about for y ears to come," Mr. Kato said. The musical runs from Dec. 3-22 and tickets can be purchased by calling (561) 5752223 or visiting www.jupitertheatre.org.

Buy a Membership for Y our Loved One084835 www .StuartShootingCenter .com Despite the rain and wind, the fish are still biting We' ve had another w eek of wind and r ain, not a lot of r ain, but rain nonetheless. I'm not sure if I'm ready for winter, but the fish are. Off shore it is sailfish season, with cooler temperatures and a mix of water condition yes, defiantly winter. The wind kept most anglers inside, but there we re a few who just had to go, and catch fish they did. M ost started at 70-feet, that was the area where the waves were not as close and one could see what was going on. South of the S t. Lucie inlet, not quite to the tower, was the favored area. S ails were plenty and the dolphin bite was excellent, mix in a few small kings and one can see enough was enough. S eas were sporty, but the conditions were perfect if y ou are a sailfish fan. Throw in a hand full of nice dolphin, and fishing has been good for the anglers. No w if the seas would slow down, an old man like me might give it a try. There were few days in the week for the surf fans to get a line wet. Fourounce and cut baits top the list. Blue fish and Spanish mac's made up most of the catch with some legal pompano for the long casters. T ime was not an issue; we just had to wait for the wind to slow. Overcast skies all week gave anglers that option. Not many pompano this week because not many anglers are quite r eady for this winter fishing, but the Pompano are definitely with us. River fishing was excellent all week with lots of big trout reported. From Little Mud south to the Sail F ish Flats, east or west side it has been a perfect week for reds and trout. Shrimp was the favored bait this w eek with most fish being ov er the slot. You might need your rain gear, but the fish are already wet. H ad a few pompano r eported, but not many anglers were out there to catch them. These fish we re caught from the bridges, but it was the flounder that stole the show. Three to six pounds were the treat, so if you did not get a pompano, who cares? I sure like the flounder. There was plenty of activity at the bridges with a long catch list of all of the above plus blues, mac's and drum, but the flounder stole the show. Tr ust you all had a great Thanksgiving. I will catch up with you next week, if we do not get washed away. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

You've finally finished the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers. The rest of the family has done all of the late night, early morning shopping with the crowds and y ou've managed to avoid all of the craziness. Now you r ealize that you have a week less this year to get your shopping done and you have no idea what to get the golfers on y our list. Have no fear Santa J ames is here. Golfers should mark their golf balls so that they may be easily identified. There are two products that allow you to easily do just that, and put a little bit of personality into the marking as well. T in Cup ( www.tincup.com ) is a system that enables you to "Make your Ma rk with a personalized ball marker using the logo or design of your choice. You can pick from the many designs on the website or contact them to have your own design made into a Tin Cup. To mark your ball, you simply slip the ball into the cup. Then, using a fine point marker, fill in the stencil and you have a personalized mark. The cup alone costs less than $20, and kits, available for $30 includes the cup, two markers, a bag clip and a leather pouch. Golfdotz ( www.golfdotz.com ) is the brainchild of entrepreneur D avid Poole who believes that golfers want something more than a bland, boring ink dot to mark their ball. Golfdotz is a small sticker that comes in a large variety of designs. These highly-detailed designs simply rub onto the ball and stay stuck through most all playing conditions. Cost is $6 for 18 dotz. If that old driver is looking a bit worn, or you really want to show support for your favorite college, Club Crown ( www.clubcrown.com ) has the perfect product. Club Crown is a professionally installed high-tech film that will change the look of any driver, wood or hybrid. The film is removable should y ou wish to change it after a while, yet it holds up to normal play. The look is quite stunning. Y ou can choose from animal prints, camouflage, argyles, carbon fiber, flags, flames, plaids, stripes, and more. They even have many college and U.S. Military logos as well. Cost is around $40. S ometimes a fun round of golf with your usual bunch can turn boring. I discovered a great card game that brings a lot of fun and competitiveness to your round. Iquest Golf ( www.iquest.com ) adds a fun twist to your round. The deck contains 14 Club Cards, which determine which clubs y ou will get to play that particular hole with, and four Strategy Cards, which are used to either help you or hinder an opponent. You can iQuest on any number of holes you choose. I magine having to putt with a 3-wood, or play a par-5 using only your 9-iron. Better y et, use the "Steal a Club" St r ategy Card to take your opponent's sand wedge from him forcing him to use a 7iron from that green-side bunker. Cost is under $20. O lympia Sports (available through amazon.com and S ears) has several indoor putting games. The company's 9 H ole Putting Game features nine cups with flags that you can set up inside your home. Y ou can then use your sofa, chairs, even the dog's dish to create hazards between the hole and where you start. Cost is $36. The best way to lower your score is to make more putts. The best putting product that I have tried comes from B oomerang ( www.boomgolf.com ). The B oomerang teaches you to hit both lag and aggressive putts. The way the 'game" works is you hit the first putt trying to stop it in the cup at the top of the sloping Boomerang. Y our next putt needs to be more aggressive to knock the first ball out of the shallow cup and return both balls down the slope to your feet. I t's much harder than it looks! The 10-inch mats that lead up to the Boomerang is available in nine different speeds, allowing you to almost exactly duplicate the speed of your greens at home. The entire putting pack" is less than $90 and includes a DVD with lessons and drills to improve y our putting performance. A dditional mats are available as well so you can hone your putting skill on multiple speed greens. I've found that the key to buying gifts for golfers is to make them fun and to have them fit the golfer's personality. Stay away from the coal. Contact James Stammer at stammergolf@yahoo.com.

Do your best to pitch in. PORT ST. LUCIE Baseball is a huge sport not only in Florida but especially in Po rt S t. Lucie. While Little League Baseball only lasts a few months of the year, there is whole other world of Tr avel Baseball that never ends. Travel Baseball teams are made of the best of the best in a particular area that compete with teams all of the country. Team Easton is a travel baseball team for nineyear olds based out of S portsmans Park in Port St. L ucie. T eam Easton was started about a year ago by local baseball player Tony Germano. "Most people don't even know there is home grown Tr avel Baseball Team consisting of the best 9 year olds and under here on the Treasure Coast said Mr. Germano of Port St. Lucie. "We r eally have something special here. It is rare to have so much talent on a baseball team and even more unbelievable that they are only 9 y ears old and from Port St. L ucie." M any travel baseball teams pull players from other cities across the state and even from other states to make up a great team. T eam Easton is made up of local players who have demonstrated outstanding skills that can take them a long way. "We take pride in knowing we don't have to bring kids in from other towns across the state or fly kids in from different states as many teams do to compete at various tournaments," said Mr. Germano. "My coaching staff and I take a lot of pride in working with these kids and their talents developing them into phenomenal baseball players". Tr avel baseball is a huge commitment for the players and parents. It is expensive to enter tournaments, rent fields for practice, equipment, umpires along with the many unseen expenses associated with travel baseball. When they are not practicing or playing, they spend our time in front of grocery stores trying to help raise money for our team. "I t would be nice to have some businesses or some generous sponsors to help as other teams but we are glad that our kids learn to take pride in knowing how much money and dedication it takes to be on a travel team,"Mr. Germano said. T eam Easton won second place in the state Championship in Kissimmee and last week, won the Daytona B each Bash 9U Championship in which teams from all over the state were invited to compete. The team will now be going to the ESPN Winter W orld Series Dec. 27 through Jan. 1 to compete with teams from all over the country. To help support Team Easton,contact Tony Germano at (772) 216-5970.
