TREASURE COAST FIRST Robotics teams from across South Florida will congregate at South Fo rk H igh School on Dec. 14 for the areas largest FIRST LEGO League tournament ever, and for some it will be a family affair. FLL introduces students in grades 4-8 to engineering challenges by building and competing with r obots constructed from LEGOs and programmed to complete certain tasks. The Joneses James and S tacey and their four children Austin, Hailey, Hannah and Nathan will all be involved in one way or another in the tournament hosted by Martin C ountys S.P.A.M. Robotics team. Its something theyve just always done. S ome people do sports, we do robots, said Mrs. Jo nes, who is the tournament director. It s the way its been since before her children we re born. Mr. Jones helped start the S.P.A.M. R obotics team 16 years ago and both were at Disney World for regionals when Stacey was nine months pregnant with their oldest. Now the whole family is hooked on robotics. A ustin, 15, is enjoying his Paddle boarder to raise money for Mollys HouseProgram encourages parking lot safety during the holidaysMARTIN COUNTY Black Friday was the official kickoff to the holiday shopping season and with sales and specials and free-gifts-with-purchase, more residents than at any other time of year are filling their carts with the treasures of the season. But with the increase in merrymaking comes a commensurate increase in crime, particularly those that take place in parking lots. Officer Brian Bossio of the Stuart P olice Department said vehicle burglary rises dramatically this time of y ear as shoppers leave valuables like r ecent purchases, cell phones and wallets in their cars in packed parking lots as they go about their business. Thieves know this to be true and are on the lookout for easy acquisitions. B ut as the threat of crime increases, the Stuart Police Department grows more vigilant. For the third y ear they are ramping up their crime prevention program, Watch-a-Lot, to deter theft in likely places. I t s a very proactive initiative, Mr. Bossio said. Officers, volunteers in marked cars and P olice Explorers in traffic vests will provide an increased presence in shopping center parking lots in the area, keeping an eye out for suspicious behavior to stop crime before it starts. I f we saturate these areas with our presence it will hopefully curb the number of vehicles that are victimized, Mr. Bossio said. A ccording to data from the past few y ears, its working. Mr. B ossio said there has been a decrease in parking lot related crimes since the inception of the 780061 MARTIN COUNTYV ol. 12, No. 28 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 780088 Kane Center looking ahead to On the Air performance in January ENTERTAINMENTB1 RA DIO STARS INDEXClassifiedB8 Crossword B7 Dining ReviewB1 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 Viewpoint A6 WEEKEND WEATHERFriday: Overcast, chance of rain; high: 75; low: 64; high tide: 5:18 a.m.; low tide: 1 1:15 a.m. Saturday: Par tly cloudy, chance of rain; high: 81; low: 70; high tide: 6:08 a.m.; low tide: 12:03 p.m. Sunday: Overcast; high: 77; low: 59; high tide: 6:53 a.m.; low tide: 12:47 p.m. W eather courtesy of www.weather.com ST. LUCIE COUNTY Local dentist Michael Huber and his daughters, T ess, 20, and Abigail, 17, lost their lives in a plane crash on Dec. 8. A ccording to Melissa B ujeda, public information officer with the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office. the 1978 Cessna model 310R aircraft was headed to the Jacksonville Executive Airport when it missed an approach and crashed at the edge of a large retention pond in a subdivision in Jacksonville. They reported to the tower that they couldnt see the runway, Ms. Bujeda said in a video on the S heriffs Office website. They were told to fly around. At that time the tower got an alert that it was low altitude and then we started getting calls around 6:20 p.m. that a plane had crashed. Mr. Huber, a popular Fo rt Pierce dentist, and his two daughters, Tess, a sophomore at University of North Florida, and Abigail, a senior at Lincoln Park Academy, lived in Po rt S t. Lucie.

ERAF is a nonprofit organization that is devoted to the r escue, rehabilitation and adoption of abused, abandoned and neglected horses. S ince 2000 they have r estored and retrained 130 horses, all but 15 of which have found permanent homes. F or the last eight years they have been reviving those malnourished and underappreciated horses from land owned by the P egasus Foundation in Palm City that exists to help fledgling foundations get on their feet. B ut now that ERAF can stand on its own, theyre moving on to bigger and PORT ST. LUCIE A Port St. L ucie man is showing his support for a local organization by heading out to the Intracoastal and paddling for a cause. It all started when Russell Hernandez, 51, spent some time at M ollys House in Stuart a few years ago during hospital procedures for his broken neck and other related issues. It was their care and kindness that prompted him to grab his paddleboard and get wet in order to r aise money for the organization. As soon as Mr. Hernandez started feeling better he threw together plans for a 300-mile paddleboard trek from Jacksonville to Miami to r aise awareness for all that Mollys H ouse does by offering affordable, temporary accommodations for patients and their families receiving medical care on the Treasure C oast. U nfortunately, waters were rough when he planned to begin his journey at the end of November and he was forced to move his launch site to Cocoa Beach. The first leg of his journey brought him 120 miles to PGA Blvd. and now Russell is taking a much deserved breather as he r ests, recuperates and rallies for support. I m testing the waters with my o wn health, Mr. Hernandez said.

first year with S.P.A.M., Hailey, 13, and Hannah, 9, will both be competing with their FLL teams on the 14th, and N athan, 7, is now part of the Jr. FLL. W e enjoy being together as a family, said Mrs. Jones, who also home schools her kids and volunteers with FLL. I t s brought us closer, said Austin who will be mentoring Hannahs team, Mindcrafters, in the upcoming competition. B ut its more than a good opportunity to have a great time together building r obots out of LEGOs. FLL teams are learning, too, developing skills that will help them succeed. In addition to applying r eal-world concepts of science, technology, engineering and math while they construct and program robots to perform specific tasks, they are learning about sportsmanship, teamwork, and gracious professionalism. Theyre also researching challenges facing todays scientists and honing their mastery of presentation. W e re learning valuable skills, Hailey said. She particularly enjoys the research projects and solutions the teams are required to produce. Mrs. Jones said not all of her children are engineeringminded, but theyve all found their niche to help their team succeed. Tw enty-four teams and around 240 kids will compete in the tournament on S aturday and Stacey hopes the community will come out and support the kids and see what theyre capable of. It s a free event that Mrs. J ones said is sure to impress. T wo Martin County High School students will sing the N ational Anthem to kick off the tournament at 9 a.m. at S outh Fork High School as the local Civil Air Patrol Color G uard presents the flag. By 4 p .m., awards will be distributed and the top four teams will receive their bids to continue on to Orlando for R egionals. Sailfish Splash park setting up for a new season of fun MARTIN COUNTY Theres a lot happing at Sailfish Splash as the water park gears up for a new season. S eason passes are on sale, ticketing systems are being tested and programs are being added to continue to make the park the fun-filled family destination that Martin County residents have come to enjoy. One thing Craig Anderson, marketing manager for S ailfish Splash, is looking forward to is the new online ordering module that will be available soon. Theyre still working out the kinks, but when its ready, water park visitors will not only be able to pay in advance for their passes and skip the lines at the park, it will also provide a simple system for fundraising. Organizations will be able to offer special promo codes to supporters so that a percentage of the sale from every pass will benefit their group. It will be easy to implement as organizations leverage the widespread interest in the water park to rai se money. The online ordering system will also be an easy way to offer discounts and special promotions so patrons get the most bang for their buck with minimal effort. O ver all I think its going to be beneficial for folks, Mr. Anderson said. As for passes, adults and children can expect to pay slightly higher prices this y ear for season passes, but while adult day pass prices r ose a bit, childrens day passes will remain the same. The only thing changing for the kids is the age at which they are charged admission, which is now 1 instead of 3. Mr. Anderson said thats because even at 1, kids are playing and enjoying the park as much as anyone. There will also be a $1 difference between weekday and weekend pricing for day passes to encourage visitors to spread attendance throughout the week. Mr. Anderson said that prices are still comparable with other entertainment venues in the area and other water parks, the closest of which is in Palm Beach C ounty. W e re working very hard to make the water park both affordable and self-sustaining, Mr. Anderson said. The last thing he wants is for the park to be a burden to the taxpayers. The new year will also bring new activities and programs to the park, including Mr. Andersons personal favorite, inner tube water polo. The water park has already scheduled several game nights for the unique activity, but Mr. Anderson F riday, December 13, 2013 A2 Martin CountyHometown News Call 334-5901for an appointmentThe Atlantic Animal Clinic1315 NE Sunview Terr.

Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.It is almost impossible for y ou to determine the true cost of a new car. This might sound crazy, but many dealers dont know the true cost of their cars. The manufacturers and distributors invoice their dealers for an amount when they ship them a car that is almost always several hundreds of dollars more than the true cost. Its fair to say that in virtually every case the invoice for a new car is much higher than the true cost. By true cost, I am r eferring to cost as defined by GAAP, generally accepted accounting principles. Y ou probably have heard about holdback. That is an amount of money added into the invoice of a car ranging from 13 percent of the MSRP which is returned to the dealer after he has paid the invoice. Some manufacturers include the cost of r egional advertising in the invoice which offsets the dealers advertising costs. Another fairly common charge included in invoices is floor plan assistance. This goes to offset the dealers cost of financing the new cars in his inventory. Another is PDI or predelivery expense which r eimbursed the dealer for preparing the car for delivery to you. I could name several more, depending on the manufacturer or distributor. S ome of these monies that are returned to the dealer are not shown as profit on his financial statement and some are. Technically a dealer could say that the cost he showed you reflected all of the profit (by definition of his financial statement), but the fact would remain that more money would come back to him after he sold you the car. To me, thats called profit. B esides holdbacks and r eimbursements for expenses, you must contend with customer and dealer incentives when trying to figure out the cost of that new car. Y ou will probably be aware of the customer incentives, but not the dealer incentives. M ost dealers prefer and lobby the manufacturers for dealer rather than customer incentives just for that r eason. Also, performance incentives are paid to dealers for selling a certain number of cars during a given time frame. These usually expire at the end of a month and are one reason why it really is smart to buy a new car on the last day of the month. Last but not least, remember the dealer fee, dealer prep fee, doc fee, dealer inspection fee, etc. which is added to the price you were quoted by the salesman. It is printed on the buyers order and is lumped into the real fees such as Florida sales tax and tag and registration fees. M ost dealers in Florida (it is illegal in many states) charge this fee which ranges from $500$1,000. If you are making your buying decision on your perceived cost of the car, even if you were right, here is up to $1,000 more in profit to the dealer. H opefully you can now understand why it is virtually impossible to precisely know the cost of the new car you are contemplating buying. M ost often the salesman and sales manager is not completely versed on the cost either. Checking the cost on a good internet site like www.kbb.com or www.edmunds.com is about the best you can do. Consumer Reports is another good source. One reason that Internet sites dont always have the right invoice price is that different distributors for cars invoice their dealers at different prices. Do not make a decision to buy a car because the dealer has agreed to sell it to you for X dollars above his cost/invoice. This statement is virtually meaningless. As I have advised you in an earlier column, you can only be assured of getting the best price by shopping several dealers for the exact same car and getting an out the door price plus tax and tag only.

program three years ago. I t s an invaluable program, Mr. Bossio said. As they patrol the parking lots on foot, officers and volunteers are also leaving crime opportunity reports on the windshields of vulnerable vehicles as a friendly r eminder that people are increasing their risk of vehicular burglary by leaving IDs, credit cards, shopping bags, even prescription medications in plain sight. He suggests that when out shopping, leave valuables at home if possible or hide them in a locked trunk or out of sight of passers-by. Instead of taking trips to and from mall stores to deposit purchases in a vehicle, do all shopping at once and then leave. B urglars are watching, Mr. Bossio said. He also urges residents to lock car doors and roll up windows to keep from offering thieves easy access to their vehicle. As always, residents are encouraged to report any suspicious behavior they witness this season in parking lots or elsewhere, and are w elcome to approach officers or Explorers with questions when they are patrolling. R esidents can expect to see more officers and volunteers than usual around town as they increase their efforts to protect the citizens of Stuart this season.

better things so another organization can use the property theyve utilized. While the property ERAF has its eye on is still under negotiation, theyre confident it will be just the place to fulfill all of their current and future needs, including caring for the 15 horses currently in their custody. I m so excited. It cant happen soon enough, said Elaine Hines, vice president of ERAF. On Nov. 15 the foundation celebrated the kick-off of their Hoofprints Capital Campaign in an effort to raise funds to purchase the new land and facility that will not only help them rehabilitate horses, but educate the community about what they do and how they can help. I t s part of our duty to educate future generations so this cycle of irresponsibility does not continue, said Randy Kinder, president of ERAF. One of the ways they do that is by working with local IB programs like S outh Fork High Schools pre-veterinary program to expose students to hands on experience with the animals. The organization also hosted an open house on Dec. 8 to give the public a first-hand look at the work they do, offer them a chance to support that work and even volunteer to help. Theres a lot of work that goes into running a barn like this, Ms. H ines said. They take neglected animals and turn them into beautiful, healthy creatures and, according to Ms. Hines, that takes time, dedication and funds. ERAF invites the community to support their cause as they send out information in the mail, appear at local events and festivals, and spread the news through word of mouth.

Many people are surprised (shocked even) when they r eplace their ancient computer with a brand spanking new machine with 10-times the horsepower than their old one, but somehow their new computer still crawls at a snails pace when connected to the internet. I often get calls from frustrated people who tell me stories like I just got a new machine but my home page takes forever to load or every time I try to watch a video online, it freezes, goes for a bit then stops again over and over! I cant stand it! The frustration is usually mixed with confusion because they figure that, since its a new machine with gobs of ram and all sorts of processor power, it should be much faster than their old machine. Now as a rule this is usually true their new machine is actually much faster than their old machine and if you set the two of them up side by side yo u ll see the new one start up much faster, open programs much faster and visibly outperform the old machine with every test you throw at it. That is until you start doing things that depend upon a fast internet connection. If you are trying to do things like watching a Y ouTube video or waiting for a page like the Yahoo portal to load and if the internet connection is not what it should be, things grind to a halt and start working at the same pace as the old machine. When people start off by telling me that watching videos over the internet is frustrating because it pauses and skips, I usually tell them about the old work around of starting the video and then immediately hitting the pause button for a while. (I still use this technique just to make sure, especially if its a long video Ill start the video then pause it and go get a cup of coffee or something. Then when I come back Ill hit play and it usually plays without a hitch). What were doing by starting it and pausing for a while is giving the data stream a good head start before releasing the play head in the hopes that the point of the video that we are watching doesnt catch up with the data stream thats downloading. If the internet connection is slow and we hit play and dont hit the pause button, the video will sometimes play faster than the computer can download the data that makes up the video and the whole thing stops while it downloads a bit more. This process is called buffering and has more to do with the speed of the internet connection than it does with the speed of the computer. Pause the video and give the data stream plenty of time to buffer and when you hit the play button again the play head wont have a chance of catching the data stream and it should play smoothly. Wi th YouTube videos you can even see it in action start a video and hit pause, then watch and youll see a thin red line start to grow from the left to the right even though the video isnt playing. That line is an indication of how much of the data stream is downloaded and the trick is to make sure its far enough ahead. Catch up to the line and the video will pause and try to buffer on its own but usually the automatic buffering doesnt give the data stream enough of a head start and the process r epeats itself over and over. O k, so we know that even a brand new computer will come to a screeching halt if its trying to do something ov er a slow internet connection, but how does one go about testing that? One way to check is to fire up your w eb browser and go to www.speedtest.net and click the begin test button. This will run a series of tests and give you a good idea of just what your download and upload speeds are measured in Mega Bits Per S econd (MBPS).

Stop paying people to not workS hould we be paying people not to work? Politicians avoid that question, but under current law, the unemployed can get up to 99 weeks of benefits capped at $564 per week. This sounds very much like permanent pay from the government. R ecipients do not have to get up every morning to go to work. They do not have to pay for transportation to and from work. They do not have to purchase appropriate work clothing and they do not have to pay for lunch. Do we want to provide permanent compensation? And, if the answer is yes, can this nation afford it?Just not worth itTheres not enough money in the world to make me sit behind a desk and deal with todays youth. They are disrespectful hooligans who do not care about themselves, their peers, parents or the teachers that try to teach them. M aybe the school system should bring back corporal punishment. If teachers could swat these wisecracking kids, then maybe they would be able to gain a little respect.In the wake of tragedyIt amazes me how the community comes together after a tragedy, but soon thereafter, the police presence rescinds and the thugs find their ways back onto the streets. Dont the police understand that they have to maintain a presence in afflicted areas? Dont parents realize what their children are doing out at night? Par ents turn an ignorant eye to their kids, leaving them to either get killed on the street or spend their lives in prison. These parents know their kids are up to no good, but dont do a thing. However, when the truth comes to light, they want to scream and fuss. The screaming and fussing should have been aimed at those kids years ago. I feel sorry for those who are hurting, but the violence hurts us all. We, as a community, must continue to work together to rid our streets, schools and neighborhoods of these no-good thugs.To all dog ownersI am a dog owner. I like all dogs, well not the ankle biting yippy ones, but I don't like owners who do not clean up after their pets. If the sight or presence of dog feces doesn't bother you, great, keep your dog at home and enjoy it. If y ou choose to venture off your property, clean it up!Unfit mothers should not be drivingS ome people are not made to be mothers. I was driving side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat, the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my eyes. Where are the police? This person could get into a car accident. What has happened to parents? Dont they have any brains? I pity that poor child.Medical technicians need more trainingThis is in response to the rant about medical technicians. I wholeheartedly agree with you but you have given them top quality title. M ostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of training and are allowed to administer medication, take blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of medical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses should perform. This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do these things in other states. No wonder there are always outbreaks of infections and other diseases that even the physicians have a hard time diagnosing. Y ou see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want to call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a status symbol. Im sure they do not even know which end goes on the patients chest. This is what nursing has come to. What a disaster. Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee. They told me it was illegal to rent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 rooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbors house and the yard is a mess.More on computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an e-mail address as its only form of contact.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called medically needy, which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick, I am unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have cant be taken care of because they dont meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I dont know where to turn.What happened to pet registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals havent. Why wont the county follow up on these regulations?Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, its like living next to a dump. Why wont code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?Expectations are downLow expectations by public-school teachers result in poor performance by our students. Compared to other countries, the U.S. ranks 21st out of 30 in science and 25th in mathematics. W orse yet, 1.2 million students each year fail to graduate. We should shake up K-12 education so that every American child is prepared for higher education or a productive career. Got something to say?

He s still suffering from muscle spasms and memory loss due to his multiple surgeries and health conditions, but he was determined to get out there and do everything he could for M ollys House while he was feeling as good as he has in y ears. The first 120 miles were r ough with cold, windy mornings and rough water, B ut I wouldnt take it back, Mr. Hernandez said. Ev en though he is taking a week or two to rest, hes dedicated to getting back out on the water, no matter what, certain he can handle another 120 miles. M y mind is stronger than my body, he said. G iving back is important to him, especially during the holiday season. I wanted to repay the people who helped me, Mr. Hernandez said. He hopes to spur others on to be generous, too, encouraging them to show their support of what hes doing by donating to M ollys House. I was astounded when he called and wanted to do it, said Louise Murtaugh, executive director at Mollys H ouse. Heres someone we we re able to help and he wants to give back and thats really awesome for us. Mr. Hernandezs plan is to be back out on the water with his son, Zak Hernandez, 17, this weekend, completing the last leg of his journey from PGA to H aulover Beach in Miami. Donors can support his cause by giving to Mollys H ouse at www.mollyshouse.org or sending a check to Mollys H ouse at 430 S.E. Osceola S t., Stuart, FL 34994.

The Boy Scouts of America Gulf Stream Council r ecently conducted its annual Scouting For Food Dr ive where hundreds of Bo y Scouts and Martin C ounty Sherriffs Office E xplorers dispersed throughout the community and collected more than 16,000 pounds of non-perishable food. The food was then given to the White Doves Holiday Pr oject, a community-wide, volunteer-driven initiative of United Way of Martin C ountys Martin Volunteers program that brings Christmas to thousands of hundreds less fortunate families in Martin County each year. W e are so thankful that the Boy Scouts selected White Doves to receive this food for our clients, said Car ol Hodnett, director of Mar tin Volunteers. It allows us to provide the staples for a meal that otherwise might not be provided for the holiday. As the local coordinating organization of the U.S. Mar ine Corps Reserve Toys F or Tots program, White Doves has also partnered with more than 170 local businesses to collect new, unwrapped toys for the children of these less fortunate families. F amilies are referred to White Doves in advance by schools, nonprofit agencies and faith-based organizations. Once approved, clients are given a specific time to shop for free for each of their children at the White Doves Warehouse and they also receive a bag of groceries. R esidents who were unable to participate in Scouting For Food can still support the White Doves H oliday Project by dropping off non-perishable food or a new, unwrapped toy at the White Doves Warehouse, 2616 S.E. Dixie Highway, S tuart, from 10 a.m. to 4 p .m. Monday through Friday. To y donations can also be dropped off at any Martin C ounty Fire Station or at one of the more than 170 other locations in Martin C ounty.

Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerThe Team 8 event held at Big Apple Pizza and Pasta and hosted by the Van Duzer Foundation in Fort Pierce on Wednesday, Dec. 4, to benefit the families of Christian Medina and Peter and Tim Green. On Oct. 23 Christian Medina and Tim and Peter Green were in a car accident resulting in the death of Christian. Big Apple Pizza and Pasta donated all proceeds from 4pm to closing, including sales, staff salaries and tips, to the cause. TREASURE COAST The F lorida Department of Children and Families, Florida C ommunity-Based Care organizations and the Florida State Foster/Adoptive Pa r ent Association have partnered with One Simple W ish to grant wishes for F loridas current and former foster children. O ne Simple Wish is a wonderful program that allows donors to grant small wishes that have a big impact on the lives of our foster children, said Esther Jacobo, DCF Interim Secretary. By having the ability to see who their donation is helping, donors know they are making a tangible difference. One Simple Wish matches individuals who want to give with current and former foster children in need of simple wishes. Wishes start at $10 and have a maximum gift amount of $500. Wishes can be granted all year-round. "One Simple Wish is proud to support Florida's foster children by empowering people all across the country to brighten their lives through our wish granting program. Granting their wishes not only creates positive memories and a sense of normalcy but also proves how much love, support and hope is out there for all children, Danielle Gletow, executive director of One Simple W ish said. F loridas foster children often arrive in the community-based care system with little to nothing and organizations such as One Simple W ish support their hopes and dreams by providing them with a wish granted, said Kurt Kelly, CEO of Florida Coalition for Children. This campaign is a r eminder of the wonderful partnerships we have here in F lorida and how coming together as a community we can better the lives Florida's abused, abandoned and neglected children." S ince the Southwest Florida Foster and Adoptive Parent Association signed up in Ma r ch 2013, more than 150 wishes have been granted for its children. The fact that One Simple W ish provides gifts for foster children that are donated by people from around the country shows our children that there is hope and that they are never alone. We thank Danielle for acting on her vision and making One S imple Wish possible for our children, Trudy Petkovich, president of the Florida State F oster/Adoptive Parent Association said. To grant a wish, visit www.onesimplewish.org to view current needs. Wishes are searchable by location, organization, child age, price r ange and type of gift. Florida children have already re ceived numerous gifts through One Simple Wish, including more than 20 wishes granted so far this month. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 13, 2013 Martin County A9 084330 Come in and Holiday Shop With Us From Grab Bags to Crystals Now Open Saturday & Sunday 11am to 3pm 2317 NE Dixie Highway, Jensen Beach, FL 34957Next to Jensen Beach BowlThe You-Nique Boutiqueat Planet Patsy085585 Check Our Event Calendar Call 772-631-8381,or Website@www.PlanetPatsy.com Holiday Family Portraits8.5 x 11 For $ 17.00 Tuesday,Dec.17th 4-9pm 1st come 1st serve with online RSVP by 12/15/13 @ www.PlanetPatsy.com 085544The Back Office, LLC David Winters515 N.

T ips for boaters watching parades from the water TREASURE COAST Each year, hundreds of towns on the water across the U.S. hold festive holiday boat parades in the month of December. Many local boaters participate, festooning their vessels with lights and joining the parade, while others line the route with their boats in order to enjoy the best view of the show. These seasonal events can cause crowded and disorienting conditions on the water, however. The nonprofit Sea Tow Foundation offers the following tips to boaters who are thinking of taking their vessels out to watch a holiday boat parade, in order to ensure they will be safe for everyone. 1. Designate a Sober Skipper to stay at the helm all evening and be responsible for returning the boat and its passengers safely to shore after the parade is over. 2. Watch your weight. Dont overload the boat with passengers. The number of seats available on board is not always the best indicator of capacity. Look for the boats capacity plate on the transom or by the helm, or look up the passenger capacity in the boats manual. 3. Dont forget your life jacket. Make sure everyone onboard the boat is wearing warm clothes topped by either a traditional or an inflatable life jacket that fits. N avigating at night in a crowd of other vessels can be just as dangerous as F riday, December 13, 2013 A10 Martin CountyHometown News Only Spa in MartinCounty to Offer FREE Pedicure Bowl Liners for State-of-the-Art Cleanliness!Monday-Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (772) 288-70042226 SE Federal Hwy.

S ometime in the near future that will begin to change and we will be hit with some cold temperatures that could fall below freezing. Here are some tips on what to look for and how to cope with it. After a freeze, you may see plants that are shedding their leaves excessively or possibly plants that are showing signs of wilted looking leaves. In some extreme cases, you might have plants that have lost all their foliage completely. U pon inspection, your first reaction may be that of a panic attack as you see y our prized plants damaged. Y our first reaction is most likely going to be to trim off all the old leaves and stems that are dead and damaged. The best advice I can give is not to do it just yet. Leave the dead or damaged leaves and branches as they are for now. In a few weeks when all danger of frost and freeze warnings are over, start your r egime of trimming back the damaged plants. This will give the plants a good start for the brisk spring growing season. If you happen to have plants that have little or no foliage, dont give up on them just yet. F irst, check to be sure that y ou still have green just under the outer skin of the plant. You can do this by gently scraping a very small area of the skin away to see if the core is green or brown. If you still see a green core, there is a chance that the plant will come back to life. If you are nursing a nearly dead plant back to health it is important not to add any harsh fertilizers as this may cause more harm them good. You should water the plant as usual and use a gentle plant starter fertilizer to help get the first set of leaves to pop out. W ith El Nino in full swing, not only are we in danger of cold snaps but also to heavy r ain. Normally, the winter months harbor plenty of dry w eather but during El Nino y ears, above normal rainfall may be the rule. Certain annuals, such as impatience, can get fungus diseases and die if they are in standing water. The best way to prevent this is to raise your annual flowerbeds above y our normal ground level. This is especially important if you are planting in an area that may flood during heavy r ains. Raising the bar will help the plants to drain quicker and not be in pools of standing water for an extended period of time. As you can see, El Nino y ears can bring about some definite gardening challenges but it also is the determining factor that can put the brakes on what would have been an exceptionally busy hurricane season.

Center to host entertaining tributePORT ST. LUCIE Tucked away in Port St. Lucie is one of the best places around for steak, fish and a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Ja n s Steakhouse offers a diverse menu that owners, Bob and Jan Tr udel, are proud of. And, they should be. From decadent steaks cooked to absolute perfection to fresh seafood dishes and incredible sauces, soups, and appetizers, the steakhouse has something for everyone. And, if what you have a taste for isnt on the menu, Mr. Tr udel will do his best to make sure yo u re accommodated. W e have people call all the time and tell us they are coming in and would like to have lobster, for example, so we make sure there is lobster ready for them when they get here, Mr. Trudel said. More often than not, someone at another table notices the lobster and says, w ow I didnt see that on the menu, so the next time they come in, they call ahead, too. The restaurant is famous for its steaks, and when my guest and I sat down in the quaint outside dining area, which was absolutely delightful with its festive lighting and intimate setting, we decided to see what all the fuss was about. O ur amazing server, who, greeted us before we even got to the door of the restaurant, suggested we try an appetizer of baked brie. As we were enjoying our freshly baked bread and dipping oil, we were delighted by the platter of freshly cut fruit, warm, crispy baguette slices, and a generous slice of warm, creamy brie. This appetizer would be perfect for lunch or for those who enjoy wine. The appetizer is definitely large enough for a meal.

As we were gushing over the incredible brie, we were served steaming cups of N ew England clam chowder, which is homemade by Mrs. Tr udel. The soup is hearty and full of lumps of clam and potatoes. F or our entre, my guest decided to try the 16-ounce r ib eye, which is served with either house or Caesar salad or a cup of soup, a vegetable and choice of potato. The steak that was brought out was, without a doubt, one of the finest steaks weve had the pleasure of eating. I had to share the steak with my guest and each bite I had melted in my mouth. I decided to try one of the many seafood dishes available. It was a hard choice between the blackened M ahi with mango salsa, almond encrusted tilapia and all of the different combinations of shrimp and scallops, however, I decided to try the almond encrusted grouper with a pineapple sherry sauce. The fish was unbelievably delicious and paired perfectly with the sauce. I chose the twicebaked potato as a side dish, however next time I visit, I will treat myself to the twice baked sweet potato. When my guest and I were finished with our dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Trudel stopped by our table to chat something that they do frequently with guests. I asked them about the atmosphere and why they suggest folks leave their cell phones in the car while they dine. I think its important that families take the time to enjoy a meal together, Mr. Tr udel said. Dinner shouldn t be a quick stop when yo u re in a hurry. We are a destination. Families should enjoy conversation, enjoy a break from the hectic lifestyle that we all have and enjoy an hour or so of good food and great company. Mrs. Trudel agreed. This is a great little spot to really enjoy a meal, she said. We live close and when I dont cook at home, we come here for dinner. N ot because its our restaur ant, but because the food is phenomenal. We have a wonderful chef, Michael D A quila, who is simply incredible. His sauces and seafood are top-notch. The Trudels likened the atmosphere to where Mrs. Tr udel grew up on Marthas Vineyard. O n the island, you find many little restaurants with patios that are nestled between buildings and offer a great dining experience, Mr. Trudel said. We have tried to recreate that experience, and hope our customers sincerely enjoy the space. I nside the restaurant is intimate seating downstairs and an upstairs area that is available for parties. The Trudels also own and operate the ever-so popular Ja n s Place in Jensen Beach, which is an area staple for delicious breakfasts and lunches.

Well the change of season is here and the cooler temperatures have moved some species in and some out, but for the moment everybody is here. Fr om tarpon that like it warm to blue fish that like it cold, migrating sails to permit at the boils, fishing has been excellent. This morning myself and two other anglers were talking about everything from sailfish from 110feet eating trolled baits to what I use to catch permit and big tarpon at the boils. Three different anglers talking fishing at the same time. The first angler wanted dolphin and those pesky sails were eating all his bait. He was fishing north of the our inlet but we had the same reports from the south, it is sail time and yes there are dolphin in the w eed lines from 80-feet out, just have to watch out for those sails. Now if you entered in one of the sailfish tournaments, it would have been pesky dolphin. First permit and now big tarpon, I am confused. Use crabs for the permit and they will get the attention of the tarpon. There are too many species to keep up with. If yo u re bottom fishing the snapper is holding everyones attention. From 40-feet on sardines, mix in a grouper or two. Know y our limits on the grouper. W ith seas that have been a little sporty at times, offshore saw some nice catch's this week. There have been plenty of S panish macs south of the inlet, one cast one fish. Lots of big whiting for the surf angler all week and y es every other species was there, just not all the time. P ompano have been biting at County Line late in the day. Try Bob Graham access early in the day. Theres no pattern, theyre just there. U se clams for the pompano, cut bait for the blues and the macs were everywhere, all the time, with a mix of jacks eating anything you threw. If yo u re fishing for dinner, try the whiting. There is no bad way to fix them. River anglers had the wind to deal with all week. If they werent feeling it from the east it was from the south and about the time you found a flat spot, the wind changed directions. Co ves to the north, M iddle Cove, Blind Creek, north end of Herman's Bay to name a few had a good bite of trout, small reds, blues and pompano and then the wind went north w est and the anglers moved, but Im not sure if the fish went with them. There was a good bite of pompano at that north end of Herman's bay Thursday and a few afternoon bites from the bridges and then the wind would change it all. No matter where you fish, the water is cooling so slow your baits down, give the fish a chance to get them. Bridges were busy with mangroves, drum, macs and snook. It was the only location where you we re not blown away by the wind. S nook closes on the 15th will reopen Feb. 1. It has been one good season. Ha ve a great week. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

I spent many of my teenage years and then some in Palm Bay. I remember the excitement I felt when a new course would open. My father, a few of his golf buddies, along with my friends would play the municipal courses around the area. My family belonged to Port Malabar Country Club and I spent a lot of time r oaming those fairways. One thing I remember well was the feeling of anticipation as we watched Palm Ga r dens Golf Course being built on Minton Road in West M elbourne. We couldn't wait to try a new course. P alm Gardens GC opened in 1979, the same year I started senior high at Palm B ay High School. It was nothing like what we were used to playing. The course took no tee times. It was first come, first served all day, every day. There was no driving range, but there were practice or warm-up nets and a putting green. One thing I remember about the course, that is true to this day, is that it is family o wned and operated. It's easy to feel right at home when y ou're here. The course, designed by E dward C. Ryder, consists of only nine holes, and plays to a par of 30. There are two sets of tees, one playing to 1,596 yards, the other 1,411. The layout is great for seniors, beginners and juniors, as well as better players who wish to work on their accuracy and course management. The many lakes, narrow fairways and pesky bunkers offer plenty of challenge to golfers of every skill. If y ou're looking for a quick game after work or to start the weekend before the rest of the family gets out of bed, this is your course. You can walk it very easily and without having to carry more than a half-dozen clubs. P alm Gardens starts off with its most intriguing hole. The first is a par-4 that makes a 90 degree dogleg right that starts about 200yards off the tee. Hit your drive much farther than that and you will find yourself in trees or water. Anything too short and you'll find your short approach blocked by trees. The second hole is a 135yard par-3 with a very narrow, y et deep green. Missing right or left means you will likely find sand. The third is a 300-yard par4 that requires a well-placed fairway wood or hybrid off the tee. A large bunker guards the front of the large green. M easuring about 175yards from the back tees, the fourth hole is the second longest par-3 on the course. It is also the only hole without a bunker and boasts the largest green. At the par-3 fifth, you will likely hit another different club from the tee. While Palm Ga r dens GC is short and tight, every hole is a different length and makes you hit different clubs at nearly every tee. It's a great design trait, which often isn't found on much longer, much more expensive tracks. Fr om the back tees, the sixth hole can play as long as 200 yards. Bunkers guard this green on both sides. Between the tee and the green trees pinch in at the sides, making the hole feel narrower than it is. Y ou can practically throw y our ball from the tee onto the seventh green which is completely surrounded by four bunkers. The eighth hole has water from the tee all the way to the green and guarding the left side. If you play too safely to the right you bring more sand and trees into play. If every great course has a r isk-reward finishing hole, then put Palm Gardens on that list. The ninth is a par-4 that can be played in many ways. From the tee you can thread a wedge or short iron onto the fairway protected by water on both sides. Or, you can pull out a big stick and try to reach the green 225yards away. Right of the green is out-of-bounds, left is the clubhouse. Anything else not on the green is likely wet or covered in sand. It's a hole that can win or lose you your match. P alm Gardens GC is quite fun and a quick stroll if you only have a couple of hours to play. R ates are great as well. To walk and play nine holes is less than $12. There are also single ($600) and family ($780) memberships that give y ou unlimited greens fees for an entire year.

TREASURE COAST FIRST Robotics teams from across South Florida will congregate at South Fo rk H igh School on Dec. 14 for the area's largest FIRST LEGO League tournament ever, and for some it will be a family affair. FLL introduces students in grades 4-8 to engineering challenges by building and competing with r obots constructed from LEGOs and programmed to complete certain tasks. The Joneses James and S tacey and their four children Austin, Hailey, Hannah and Nathan will all be involved in one way or another in the tournament hosted by Martin C ounty's S.P.A.M. Robotics team. It's something they've just always done. "S ome people do sports, we do robots," said Mrs. Jo nes, who is the tournament director. It 's the way it's been since before her children we re born. Mr. Jones helped start the S.P.A.M. R obotics team 16 years ago and both were at Disney World for regionals when Stacey was nine months pregnant with their oldest. No w the whole family is hooked on robotics. A ustin, 15, is enjoying his Paddle boarder to raise money for Molly's HouseProgram encourages parking lot safety during the holidaysMARTIN COUNTY Black Friday was the official kickoff to the holiday shopping season and with sales and specials and free-gifts-with-purchase, more residents than at any other time of year are filling their carts with the treasures of the season. But with the increase in merrymaking comes a commensurate increase in crime, particularly those that take place in parking lots. Officer Brian Bossio of the Stuart P olice Department said vehicle burglary rises dramatically this time of y ear as shoppers leave valuables like r ecent purchases, cell phones and wallets in their cars in packed parking lots as they go about their business. Thieves know this to be true and are on the lookout for easy acquisitions. B ut as the threat of crime increases, the Stuart Police Department grows more vigilant. For the third y ear they are ramping up their crime prevention program, Watch-a-Lot, to deter theft in likely places. "I t' s a very proactive initiative," Mr. Bossio said. Officers, volunteers in marked cars and P olice Explorers in traffic vests will provide an increased presence in shopping center parking lots in the area, keeping an eye out for suspicious behavior to stop crime before it starts. "I f we saturate these areas with our presence it will hopefully curb the number of vehicles that are victimized," Mr. Bossio said. A ccording to data from the past few y ears, it's working. Mr. B ossio said there has been a decrease in parking lot related crimes since the inception of the 780061 MARTIN COUNTY V ol. 12, No. 28 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 780088 Kane Center looking ahead to On the Air' performance in January ENTERTAINMENTB1 RA DIO STARS IN DEXClassifiedB8 Crossword B7 Dining ReviewB1 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6 WEEKEND WEATHERF riday: Overcast, chance of rain; high: 75; low: 64; high tide: 5:18 a.m.; low tide: 1 1:15 a.m. Saturday: Par tly cloudy, chance of rain; high: 81; low: 70; high tide: 6:08 a.m.; low tide: 12:03 p.m. Sunday: Overcast; high: 77; low: 59; high tide: 6:53 a.m.; low tide: 12:47 p.m. W eather courtesy of www.weather.com ST.

A ccording to Melissa B ujeda, public information officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. the 1978 Cessna model 310R aircraft was headed to the Jacksonville Executive Airport when it missed an approach and crashed at the edge of a large retention pond in a subdivision in Jacksonville. They reported to the tower that they couldn't see the runway, Ms. Bujeda said in a video on the S heriff's Office website. They were told to fly around. At that time the tower got an alert that it was low altitude and then we started getting calls around 6:20 p.m. that a plane had crashed."

ERAF is a nonprofit organization that is devoted to the r escue, rehabilitation and adoption of abused, abandoned and neglected horses. S ince 2000 they have r estored and retrained 130 horses, all but 15 of which have found permanent homes. F or the last eight years they have been reviving those malnourished and underappreciated horses from land owned by the P egasus Foundation in Palm City that exists to help fledgling foundations get on their feet. B ut now that ERAF can stand on its own, they're moving on to bigger and PORT ST. LUCIE A Port St. L ucie man is showing his support for a local organization by heading out to the Intracoastal and paddling for a cause. It all started when Russell Hernandez, 51, spent some time at M olly's House in Stuart a few years ago during hospital procedures for his broken neck and other related issues. It was their care and kindness that prompted him to grab his paddleboard and get wet in order to r aise money for the organization. As soon as Mr. Hernandez started feeling better he threw together plans for a 300-mile paddleboard trek from Jacksonville to Miami to r aise awareness for all that Molly's H ouse does by offering affordable, temporary accommodations for patients and their families receiving medical care on the Treasure C oast. U nfortunately, waters were rough when he planned to begin his journey at the end of November and he was forced to move his launch site to Cocoa Beach. The first leg of his journey brought him 120 miles to PGA Blvd. and now Russell is taking a much deserved breather as he r ests, recuperates and rallies for support. "I 'm testing the waters with my o wn health," Mr. Hernandez said.

first year with S.P.A.M., Hailey, 13, and Hannah, 9, will both be competing with their FLL teams on the 14th, and N athan, 7, is now part of the Jr. FLL. "W e enjoy being together as a family," said Mrs. Jones, who also home schools her kids and volunteers with FLL. "I t' s brought us closer," said Austin who will be mentoring Hannah's team, Mindcrafters, in the upcoming competition. B ut it's more than a good opportunity to have a great time together building r obots out of LEGO's. FLL teams are learning, too, developing skills that will help them succeed. In addition to applying r eal-world concepts of science, technology, engineering and math while they construct and program robots to perform specific tasks, they are learning about sportsmanship, teamwork, and gracious professionalism. They're also researching challenges facing today's scientists and honing their mastery of presentation. "W e' re learning valuable skills," Hailey said. She particularly enjoys the research projects and solutions the teams are required to produce. Mrs. Jones said not all of her children are engineeringminded, but they've all found their niche to help their team succeed. Tw enty-four teams and around 240 kids will compete in the tournament on S aturday and Stacey hopes the community will come out and support the kids and see what they're capable of. It 's a free event that Mrs. J ones said is sure to impress. T wo Martin County High School students will sing the N ational Anthem to kick off the tournament at 9 a.m. at S outh Fork High School as the local Civil Air Patrol Color G uard presents the flag. By 4 p .m., awards will be distributed and the top four teams will receive their bids to continue on to Orlando for R egionals. Sailfish Splash park setting up for a new season of fun MARTIN COUNTY There's a lot happing at Sailfish Splash as the water park gears up for a new season. S eason passes are on sale, ticketing systems are being tested and programs are being added to continue to make the park the fun-filled family destination that Martin County residents have come to enjoy. One thing Craig Anderson, marketing manager for S ailfish Splash, is looking forward to is the new online ordering module that will be available soon. They're still working out the kinks, but when it's ready, water park visitors will not only be able to pay in advance for their passes and skip the lines at the park, it will also provide a simple system for fundraising. Organizations will be able to offer special promo codes to supporters so that a percentage of the sale from every pass will benefit their group. It will be easy to implement as organizations leverage the widespread interest in the water park to rai se money. The online ordering system will also be an easy way to offer discounts and special promotions so patrons get the most bang for their buck with minimal effort. "O ver all I think it's going to be beneficial for folks," Mr. Anderson said. As for passes, adults and children can expect to pay slightly higher prices this y ear for season passes, but while adult day pass prices r ose a bit, children's day passes will remain the same. The only thing changing for the kids is the age at which they are charged admission, which is now 1 instead of 3. Mr. Anderson said that's because even at 1, kids are playing and enjoying the park as much as anyone. There will also be a $1 difference between weekday and weekend pricing for day passes to encourage visitors to spread attendance throughout the week. Mr. Anderson said that prices are still comparable with other entertainment venues in the area and other water parks, the closest of which is in Palm Beach C ounty. "W e' re working very hard to make the water park both affordable and self-sustaining," Mr. Anderson said. The last thing he wants is for the park to be a burden to the taxpayers. The new year will also bring new activities and programs to the park, including Mr. Anderson's personal favorite, inner tube water polo. The water park has already scheduled several game nights for the unique activity, but Mr. Anderson F riday, December 13, 2013 A2 Martin CountyHometown News Call 334-5901for an appointmentThe Atlantic Animal Clinic1315 NE Sunview Terr. € Jensen Beach084328 VaccineClinicSaturday,December 21st $500Rabies ShotsCash &Check Only 8 AM 11 AM Make Your Re se rv ations For Yo ur Holiday Bo arding Toda y! 085581 Jamie L.

"I t' s a tube-load of fun to play," Mr. Anderson said. He also hopes to add more fundraising events like a "Dog Days" gathering to raise money to build a dog park.

Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com.It is almost impossible for y ou to determine the true cost of a new car. This might sound crazy, but many dealers don't know the true cost of their cars. The manufacturers and distributors invoice their dealers for an amount when they ship them a car that is almost always several hundreds of dollars more than the true cost. It's fair to say that in virtually every case the "invoice" for a new car is much higher than the true cost. By true cost, I am r eferring to cost as defined by GAAP, generally accepted accounting principles. Y ou probably have heard about "holdback." That is an amount of money added into the invoice of a car ranging from 13 percent of the MSRP which is returned to the dealer after he has paid the invoice. Some manufacturers include the cost of r egional advertising in the invoice which offsets the dealer's advertising costs. Another fairly common charge included in invoices is "floor plan assistance." This goes to offset the dealer's cost of financing the new cars in his inventory. Another is "PDI" or predelivery expense which r eimbursed the dealer for preparing the car for delivery to you. I could name several more, depending on the manufacturer or distributor. S ome of these monies that are returned to the dealer are not shown as profit on his financial statement and some are. Technically a dealer could say that the cost he showed you reflected all of the profit (by definition of his financial statement), but the fact would remain that more money would come back to him after he sold you the car. To me, that's called profit. B esides holdbacks and r eimbursements for expenses, you must contend with customer and dealer incentives when trying to figure out the cost of that new car. Y ou will probably be aware of the customer incentives, but not the dealer incentives. M ost dealers prefer and lobby the manufacturers for dealer rather than customer incentives just for that r eason. Also, performance incentives are paid to dealers for selling a certain number of cars during a given time frame. These usually expire at the end of a month and are one reason why it really is smart to buy a new car on the last day of the month. Last but not least, remember the "dealer fee," "dealer prep fee," "doc fee," "dealer inspection fee," etc. which is added to the price you were quoted by the salesman. It is printed on the buyer's order and is lumped into the real fees such as Florida sales tax and tag and registration fees. M ost dealers in Florida (it is illegal in many states) charge this fee which ranges from $500$1,000. If you are making your buying decision on your perceived cost of the car, even if you were right, here is up to $1,000 more in profit to the dealer. H opefully you can now understand why it is virtually impossible to precisely know the cost of the new car you are contemplating buying. M ost often the salesman and sales manager is not completely versed on the cost either. Checking the cost on a good internet site like www.kbb.com or www.edmunds.com is about the best you can do. Consumer Reports is another good source. One reason that Internet sites don't always have the right invoice price is that different distributors for cars invoice their dealers at different prices. Do not make a decision to buy a car because the dealer has agreed to sell it to you for "X dollars above his cost/invoice." This statement is virtually meaningless. As I have advised you in an earlier column, you can only be assured of getting the best price by shopping several dealers for the exact same car and getting an "out the door" price plus tax and tag only.

program three years ago. "I t' s an invaluable program," Mr. Bossio said. As they patrol the parking lots on foot, officers and volunteers are also leaving crime opportunity reports on the windshields of vulnerable vehicles as a friendly r eminder that people are increasing their risk of vehicular burglary by leaving ID's, credit cards, shopping bags, even prescription medications in plain sight. He suggests that when out shopping, leave valuables at home if possible or hide them in a locked trunk or out of sight of passers-by. Instead of taking trips to and from mall stores to deposit purchases in a vehicle, do all shopping at once and then leave. "B urglars are watching," Mr. Bossio said. He also urges residents to lock car doors and roll up windows to keep from offering thieves easy access to their vehicle. As always, residents are encouraged to report any suspicious behavior they witness this season in parking lots or elsewhere, and are w elcome to approach officers or Explorers with questions when they are patrolling. R esidents can expect to see more officers and volunteers than usual around town as they increase their efforts to protect the citizens of Stuart this season.

better things so another organization can use the property they've utilized. While the property ERAF has its eye on is still under negotiation, they're confident it will be just the place to fulfill all of their current and future needs, including caring for the 15 horses currently in their custody. "I 'm so excited. It can't happen soon enough," said Elaine Hines, vice president of ERAF. On Nov. 15 the foundation celebrated the kick-off of their Hoofprints Capital Campaign in an effort to raise funds to purchase the new land and facility that will not only help them rehabilitate horses, but educate the community about what they do and how they can help. "I t' s part of our duty to educate future generations so this cycle of irresponsibility does not continue," said Randy Kinder, president of ERAF. One of the ways they do that is by working with local IB programs like S outh Fork High School's pre-veterinary program to expose students to hands on experience with the animals. The organization also hosted an open house on Dec. 8 to give the public a first-hand look at the work they do, offer them a chance to support that work and even volunteer to help. There's a lot of work that goes into running a barn like this," Ms. H ines said. They take neglected animals and turn them into beautiful, healthy creatures and, according to Ms. Hines, that takes time, dedication and funds. ERAF invites the community to support their cause as they send out information in the mail, appear at local events and festivals, and spread the news through word of mouth.

Many people are surprised (shocked even) when they r eplace their ancient computer with a brand spanking new machine with 10-times the horsepower than their old one, but somehow their new computer still crawls at a snail's pace when connected to the internet. I often get calls from frustrated people who tell me stories like "I just got a new machine but my home page takes forever to load" or "every time I try to watch a video online, it freezes, goes for a bit then stops again over and over! I can't stand it!" The frustration is usually mixed with confusion because they figure that, since it's a new machine with gobs of ram and all sorts of processor power, it should be much faster than their old machine. No w as a rule this is usually true their new machine is actually much faster than their old machine and if you set the two of them up side by side yo u' ll see the new one start up much faster, open programs much faster and visibly outperform the old machine with every test you throw at it. That is until you start doing things that depend upon a fast internet connection. If y ou are trying to do things like watching a Y ouTube video or waiting for a page like the Yahoo portal to load and if the internet connection is not what it should be, things grind to a halt and start working at the same pace as the old machine. When people start off by telling me that watching videos over the internet is frustrating because it pauses and "skips," I usually tell them about the old work around of starting the video and then immediately hitting the "pause" button for a while. (I still use this technique just to make sure, especially if it's a long video I'll start the video then pause it and go get a cup of coffee or something. Then when I come back I'll hit play and it usually plays without a hitch). What we're doing by starting it and pausing for a while is giving the data stream a good head start before releasing the play head in the hopes that the point of the video that we are watching doesn't catch up with the data stream that's downloading. If the internet connection is slow and we hit play and don't hit the pause button, the video will sometimes play faster than the computer can download the data that makes up the video and the whole thing stops while it downloads a bit more. This process is called "buffering" and has more to do with the speed of the internet connection than it does with the speed of the computer. Pause the video and give the data stream plenty of time to buffer and when you hit the play button again the play head won't have a chance of catching the data stream and it should play smoothly. Wi th YouTube videos you can even see it in action start a video and hit pause, then watch and you'll see a thin red line start to grow from the left to the right even though the video isn't playing. That line is an indication of how much of the data stream is downloaded and the trick is to make sure it's far enough ahead. Catch up to the line and the video will pause and try to buffer on its own but usually the automatic buffering doesn't give the data stream enough of a head start and the process r epeats itself over and over. O k, so we know that even a brand new computer will come to a screeching halt if it's trying to do something ov er a slow internet connection, but how does one go about testing that? One way to check is to fire up your w eb browser and go to www.speedtest.net and click the "begin test" button. This will run a series of tests and give you a good idea of just what your download and upload speeds are measured in "Mega Bits Per S econd" (MBPS).

Stop paying people to not workS hould we be paying people not to work? Politicians avoid that question, but under current law, the unemployed can get up to 99 weeks of benefits capped at $564 per week. This sounds very much like permanent pay from the government. R ecipients do not have to get up every morning to go to work. They do not have to pay for transportation to and from work. They do not have to purchase appropriate work clothing and they do not have to pay for lunch. Do we want to provide permanent compensation? And, if the answer is yes, can this nation afford it?Just not worth itThere's not enough money in the world to make me sit behind a desk and deal with today's youth. They are disrespectful hooligans who do not care about themselves, their peers, parents or the teachers that try to teach them. M aybe the school system should bring back corporal punishment. If teachers could swat these wisecracking kids, then maybe they would be able to gain a little respect.In the wake of tragedyIt amazes me how the community comes together after a tragedy, but soon thereafter, the police presence rescinds and the thugs find their ways back onto the streets. Don't the police understand that they have to maintain a presence in afflicted areas? Don't parents realize what their children are doing out at night? Pa r ents turn an ignorant eye to their kids, leaving them to either get killed on the street or spend their lives in prison. These parents know their kids are up to no good, but don't do a thing. However, when the truth comes to light, they want to scream and fuss. The screaming and fussing should have been aimed at those kids years ago. I feel sorry for those who are hurting, but the violence hurts us all. We, as a community, must continue to work together to rid our streets, schools and neighborhoods of these no-good thugs.To all dog ownersI am a dog owner. I like all dogs, well not the ankle biting yippy ones, but I don't like owners who do not clean up after their pets. If the sight or presence of dog feces doesn't bother you, great, keep your dog at home and enjoy it. If y ou choose to venture off your property, clean it up!Unfit mothers should not be drivingS ome people are not made to be mothers. I was driving side-by-side with this woman who had a baby in a car seat, the wrong way in the back of the car. She was on a cell phone, driving with her legs, and drinking a coke. She had no regard for anybody on the road. I could not believe my eyes. Where are the police? This person could get into a car accident. What has happened to parents? Don't they have any brains? I pity that poor child.Medical technicians need more trainingThis is in response to the rant about medical technicians. I wholeheartedly agree with you but you have given them top quality title. M ostly, they are aides who receive a mere 40 hours of training and are allowed to administer medication, take blood pressure, draw blood, and perform all kinds of medical and nursing procedures that only qualified nurses should perform. This can only happen in Florida because they dare not do these things in other states. No wonder there are always outbreaks of infections and other diseases that even the physicians have a hard time diagnosing. Y ou see, these aides and assistants, whichever you want to call them, use stethoscopes around their necks as a status symbol. I'm sure they do not even know which end goes on the patient's chest. This is what nursing has come to. What a disaster. Tired of messy neighborsI have a problem with the outrageous behavior of my neighbor. I went to the county zoning committee. They told me it was illegal to rent a room in the county in a residential neighborhood, yet there were 15 rooms for rent in the paper today. What do I have to do? It is constant party time at my neighbor's house and the yard is a mess.More on computersIt is my choice not to own a computer. It is also my choice not to be a patron of a business that gives an e-mail address as its only form of contact.T oo many flaws in Medicaid systemThis is regarding Medicaid. My wife and I just got on M edicaid. We are taking care of our three grandchildren. I am in a program called "medically needy," which means I have to have medical bills that exceed $750 a month for me to be eligible. I am not currently working, and because I am sick, I am unable to get a Medicaid number because my bills are not yet more than $750 a month, but the bills I have can't be taken care of because they don't meet the criteria. My wife makes $1,400 a month and our expenses are more than $1,600. I don't know where to turn.What happened to pet registration law?Whatever happened to the county requirement that dogs and cats and breeders must be registered for a fee? There seems to be no verification of registration at all. P uppy mills are flourishing. Dogs and cats are being euthanized. Responsible pet owners have complied and the creeps who breed animals haven't. Why won't the county follow up on these regulations?Living next to a dumpI have a neighbor who has four unregistered cars on his property that he fills with junk. For me, it's like living next to a dump. Why won't code enforcement do something about it? I have complained, yet nothing has happened. How can the city expect more businesses to come to the area when it looks like a dump?Expectations are downLow expectations by public-school teachers result in poor performance by our students. Compared to other countries, the U.S. ranks 21st out of 30 in science and 25th in mathematics. W orse yet, 1.2 million students each year fail to graduate. We should shake up K-12 education so that every American child is prepared for higher education or a productive career. Got something to say?

He 's still suffering from muscle spasms and memory loss due to his multiple surgeries and health conditions, but he was determined to get out there and do everything he could for M olly's House while he was feeling as good as he has in y ears. The first 120 miles were r ough with cold, windy mornings and rough water, "B ut I wouldn't take it back," Mr. Hernandez said. Ev en though he is taking a week or two to rest, he's dedicated to getting back out on the water, no matter what, certain he can handle another 120 miles. "M y mind is stronger than my body," he said. G iving back is important to him, especially during the holiday season. "I wanted to repay the people who helped me," Mr. Hernandez said. He hopes to spur others on to be generous, too, encouraging them to show their support of what he's doing by donating to M olly's House. "I was astounded when he called and wanted to do it," said Louise Murtaugh, executive director at Molly's H ouse. "Here's someone we we re able to help and he wants to give back and that's really awesome for us." Mr. Hernandez's plan is to be back out on the water with his son, Zak Hernandez, 17, this weekend, completing the last leg of his journey from PGA to H aulover Beach in Miami. Donors can support his cause by giving to Molly's H ouse at www.mollyshouse.org or sending a check to Molly's H ouse at 430 S.E. Osceola S t., Stuart, FL 34994.

The Boy Scouts of America Gulf Stream Council r ecently conducted its annual Scouting For Food Dr ive where hundreds of Bo y Scouts and Martin C ounty Sherriff's Office E xplorers dispersed throughout the community and collected more than 16,000 pounds of non-perishable food. The food was then given to the White Doves Holiday Pr oject, a community-wide, volunteer-driven initiative of United Way of Martin C ounty's Martin Volunteers program that brings Christmas to thousands of hundreds less fortunate families in Martin County each year. "W e are so thankful that the Boy Scouts selected White Doves to receive this food for our clients," said Ca r ol Hodnett, director of Ma r tin Volunteers. "It allows us to provide the staples for a meal that otherwise might not be provided for the holiday." As the local coordinating organization of the U.S. Ma r ine Corps Reserve Toys F or Tots program, White Doves has also partnered with more than 170 local businesses to collect new, unwrapped toys for the children of these less fortunate families. F amilies are referred to White Doves in advance by schools, nonprofit agencies and faith-based organizations. Once approved, clients are given a specific time to shop for free for each of their children at the White Doves Warehouse and they also receive a bag of groceries. R esidents who were unable to participate in Scouting For Food can still support the White Doves H oliday Project by dropping off non-perishable food or a new, unwrapped toy at the White Doves Warehouse, 2616 S.E. Dixie Highway, S tuart, from 10 a.m. to 4 p .m. Monday through Friday. To y donations can also be dropped off at any Martin C ounty Fire Station or at one of the more than 170 other locations in Martin C ounty.

Sevin Bullwinkle /staff photographerThe Team 8 event held at Big Apple Pizza and Pasta and hosted by the Van Duzer Foundation in Fort Pierce on Wednesday, Dec. 4, to benefit the families of Christian Medina and Peter and Tim Green. On Oct. 23 Christian Medina and Tim and Peter Green were in a car accident resulting in the death of Christian. Big Apple Pizza and Pasta donated all proceeds from 4pm to closing, including sales, staff salaries and tips, to the cause. TREASURE COAST The F lorida Department of Children and Families, Florida C ommunity-Based Care organizations and the Florida State Foster/Adoptive Pa r ent Association have partnered with One Simple W ish to grant wishes for F lorida's current and former foster children. "O ne Simple Wish is a wonderful program that allows donors to grant small wishes that have a big impact on the lives of our foster children," said Esther Jacobo, DCF Interim Secretary. "By having the ability to see who their donation is helping, donors know they are making a tangible difference." One Simple Wish matches individuals who want to give with current and former foster children in need of simple wishes. Wishes start at $10 and have a maximum gift amount of $500. Wishes can be granted all year-round. "One Simple Wish is proud to support Florida's foster children by empowering people all across the country to brighten their lives through our wish granting program. Granting their wishes not only creates positive memories and a sense of normalcy but also proves how much love, support and hope is out there for all children," Danielle Gletow, executive director of One Simple W ish said. "F lorida's foster children often arrive in the community-based care system with little to nothing and organizations such as One Simple W ish support their hopes and dreams by providing them with a wish granted," said Kurt Kelly, CEO of Florida Coalition for Children. This campaign is a r eminder of the wonderful partnerships we have here in F lorida and how coming together as a community we can better the lives Florida's abused, abandoned and neglected children." S ince the Southwest Florida Foster and Adoptive Parent Association signed up in Ma r ch 2013, more than 150 wishes have been granted for its children. The fact that One Simple W ish provides gifts for foster children that are donated by people from around the country shows our children that there is hope and that they are never alone. We thank Danielle for acting on her vision and making One S imple Wish possible for our children," Trudy Petkovich, president of the Florida State F oster/Adoptive Parent Association said. To grant a wish, visit www.onesimplewish.org to view current needs. Wishes are searchable by location, organization, child age, price r ange and type of gift. Florida children have already re ceived numerous gifts through One Simple Wish, including more than 20 wishes granted so far this month. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 13, 2013 Martin County A9 084330 Come in and Holiday Shop With Us From Grab Bags to Crystals Now Open Saturday & Sunday 11am to 3pm 2317 NE Dixie Highway, Jensen Beach, FL 34957Next to Jensen Beach BowlThe You-NiqueŽ Boutiqueat Planet Patsy085585 Check Our Event Calendar Call 772-631-8381,or Website@www.PlanetPatsy.com Holiday Family Portraits8.5 x 11 For $ 17.00 Tuesday,Dec.17th 4-9pm 1st come 1st serve with online RSVP by 12/15/13 @ www.PlanetPatsy.com 085544The Back Office, LLC David Winters515 N.

T ips for boaters watching parades from the water TREASURE COAST Each year, hundreds of towns on the water across the U.S. hold festive holiday boat parades in the month of December. Many local boaters participate, festooning their vessels with lights and joining the parade, while others line the route with their boats in order to enjoy the best view of the show. These seasonal events can cause crowded and disorienting conditions on the water, however. The nonprofit Sea Tow Foundation offers the following tips to boaters who are thinking of taking their vessels out to watch a holiday boat parade, in order to ensure they will be safe for everyone. 1. Designate a Sober Skipper to stay at the helm all evening and be responsible for returning the boat and its passengers safely to shore after the parade is over. 2. Watch your weight. Don't overload the boat with passengers. The number of seats available on board is not always the best indicator of capacity. Look for the boat's capacity plate on the transom or by the helm, or look up the passenger capacity in the boat's manual. 3. Don't forget your life jacket. Make sure everyone onboard the boat is wearing warm clothes topped by either a traditional or an inflatable life jacket that fits. N avigating at night in a crowd of other vessels can be just as dangerous as F riday, December 13, 2013 A10 Martin CountyHometown News Only Spa in MartinCounty to Offer FREE Pedicure Bowl Liners for State-of-the-Art Cleanliness!Monday-Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (772) 288-70042226 SE Federal Hwy. € Stuart Next to Big Lotswww.bnailsspa.com 085541 HAIRCUT Restrictions ApplyExpires 1/13/14PEDICURE EXPIRES 1/13/14$20$12 Manicures Pedicures Acrylic Nails Pink &White Gel Nails Healthy Nails W axing Eyelash Extensions Facials Permanent Makeup Hair Massage IndividualRoomsforPartieswithaFREEBottleofChampagne OFFICE LOCATIONS IN PORT ST.

S ometime in the near future that will begin to change and we will be hit with some cold temperatures that could fall below freezing. Here are some tips on what to look for and how to cope with it. After a freeze, you may see plants that are shedding their leaves excessively or possibly plants that are showing signs of wilted looking leaves. In some extreme cases, you might have plants that have lost all their foliage completely. U pon inspection, your first reaction may be that of a panic attack as you see y our prized plants damaged. Y our first reaction is most likely going to be to trim off all the old leaves and stems that are dead and damaged. The best advice I can give is not to do it just yet. Leave the dead or damaged leaves and branches as they are for now. In a few weeks when all danger of frost and freeze warnings are over, start your r egime of trimming back the damaged plants. This will give the plants a good start for the brisk spring growing season. If y ou happen to have plants that have little or no foliage, don't give up on them just yet. F irst, check to be sure that y ou still have green just under the outer skin of the plant. You can do this by gently scraping a very small area of the skin away to see if the core is green or brown. If y ou still see a green core, there is a chance that the plant will come back to life. If y ou are nursing a nearly dead plant back to health it is important not to add any harsh fertilizers as this may cause more harm them good. You should water the plant as usual and use a gentle plant starter fertilizer to help get the first set of leaves to pop out. W ith El Nino in full swing, not only are we in danger of cold snaps but also to heavy r ain. Normally, the winter months harbor plenty of dry w eather but during El Nino y ears, above normal rainfall may be the rule. Certain annuals, such as impatience, can get fungus diseases and die if they are in standing water. The best way to prevent this is to raise your annual flowerbeds above y our normal ground level. This is especially important if you are planting in an area that may flood during heavy r ains. Raising the bar will help the plants to drain quicker and not be in pools of standing water for an extended period of time. As you can see, El Nino y ears can bring about some definite gardening challenges but it also is the determining factor that can put the brakes on what would have been an exceptionally busy hurricane season.

Center to host entertaining tributePORT ST. LUCIE Tucked away in Port St. Lucie is one of the best places around for steak, fish and a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Ja n' s Steakhouse offers a diverse menu that owners, Bob and Jan Tr udel, are proud of. And, they should be. From decadent steaks cooked to absolute perfection to fresh seafood dishes and incredible sauces, soups, and appetizers, the steakhouse has something for everyone. And, if what you have a taste for isn't on the menu, Mr. Tr udel will do his best to make sure yo u' re accommodated. "W e have people call all the time and tell us they are coming in and would like to have lobster, for example, so we make sure there is lobster ready for them when they get here," Mr. Trudel said. "More often than not, someone at another table notices the lobster and says, w ow I didn't see that on the menu,' so the next time they come in, they call ahead, too." The restaurant is famous for its steaks, and when my guest and I sat down in the quaint outside dining area, which was absolutely delightful with its festive lighting and intimate setting, we decided to see what all the fuss was about. O ur amazing server, who, greeted us before we even got to the door of the restaurant, suggested we try an appetizer of baked brie. As we were enjoying our freshly baked bread and dipping oil, we were delighted by the platter of freshly cut fruit, warm, crispy baguette slices, and a generous slice of warm, creamy brie. This appetizer would be perfect for lunch or for those who enjoy wine. The appetizer is definitely large enough for a meal.

As we were gushing over the incredible brie, we were served steaming cups of N ew England clam chowder, which is homemade by Mrs. Tr udel. The soup is hearty and full of lumps of clam and potatoes. F or our entrŽe, my guest decided to try the 16-ounce r ib eye, which is served with either house or Caesar salad or a cup of soup, a vegetable and choice of potato. The steak that was brought out was, without a doubt, one of the finest steaks we've had the pleasure of eating. I had to share the steak with my guest and each bite I had melted in my mouth. I decided to try one of the many seafood dishes available. It was a hard choice between the blackened M ahi with mango salsa, almond encrusted tilapia and all of the different combinations of shrimp and scallops, however, I decided to try the almond encrusted grouper with a pineapple sherry sauce. The fish was unbelievably delicious and paired perfectly with the sauce. I chose the twicebaked potato as a side dish, however next time I visit, I will treat myself to the twice baked sweet potato. When my guest and I were finished with our dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Trudel stopped by our table to chat something that they do frequently with guests. I asked them about the atmosphere and why they suggest folks leave their cell phones in the car while they dine. "I think it's important that families take the time to enjoy a meal together," Mr. Tr udel said. "Dinner shouldn' t be a quick stop when yo u' re in a hurry. We are a destination. Families should enjoy conversation, enjoy a break from the hectic lifestyle that we all have and enjoy an hour or so of good food and great company." Mrs. Trudel agreed. This is a great little spot to really enjoy a meal," she said. "We live close and when I don't cook at home, we come here for dinner. N ot because it's our restaur ant, but because the food is phenomenal. We have a wonderful chef, Michael D' A quila, who is simply incredible. His sauces and seafood are top-notch." The Trudel's likened the atmosphere to where Mrs. Tr udel grew up on Martha's V ineyard. "O n the island, you find many little restaurants with patios that are nestled between buildings and offer a great dining experience," Mr. Trudel said. "We have tried to recreate that experience, and hope our customers sincerely enjoy the space." I nside the restaurant is intimate seating downstairs and an upstairs area that is available for parties. The Trudels also own and operate the ever-so popular Ja n' s Place in Jensen Beach, which is an area staple for delicious breakfasts and lunches.

Well the change of season is here and the cooler temperatures have moved some species in and some out, but for the moment everybody is here. Fr om tarpon that like it warm to blue fish that like it cold, migrating sails to permit at the boils, fishing has been excellent. This morning myself and two other anglers were talking about everything from sailfish from 110feet eating trolled baits to what I use to catch permit and big tarpon at the boils. Three different anglers talking fishing at the same time. The first angler wanted dolphin and those pesky sails were eating all his bait. He was fishing north of the our inlet but we had the same reports from the south, it is sail time and yes there are dolphin in the w eed lines from 80-feet out, just have to watch out for those sails. No w if you entered in one of the sailfish tournaments, it would have been pesky dolphin. First permit and now big tarpon, I am confused. Use crabs for the permit and they will get the attention of the tarpon. There are too many species to keep up with. If yo u' re bottom fishing the snapper is holding everyone's attention. From 40-feet on sardines, mix in a grouper or two. Know y our limits on the grouper. W ith seas that have been a little sporty at times, offshore saw some nice catch's this week. There have been plenty of S panish mac's south of the inlet, one cast one fish. Lots of big whiting for the surf angler all week and y es every other species was there, just not all the time. P ompano have been biting at County Line late in the day. Try Bob Graham access early in the day. There's no pattern, they're just there. U se clams for the pompano, cut bait for the blues and the mac's were everywhere, all the time, with a mix of jacks eating anything you threw. If yo u' re fishing for dinner, try the whiting. There is no bad way to fix them. River anglers had the wind to deal with all week. If they weren't feeling it from the east it was from the south and about the time you found a flat spot, the wind changed directions. Co ves to the north, M iddle Cove, Blind Creek, north end of Herman's Bay to name a few had a good bite of trout, small reds, blues and pompano and then the wind went north w est and the anglers moved, but I'm not sure if the fish went with them. There was a good bite of pompano at that north end of Herman's bay Thursday and a few afternoon bites from the bridges and then the wind would change it all. No matter where you fish, the water is cooling so slow your baits down, give the fish a chance to get them. Bridges were busy with mangroves, drum, mac's and snook. It was the only location where you we re not blown away by the wind. S nook closes on the 15th will reopen Feb. 1. It has been one good season. Ha ve a great week. H enry Caimatto is the o wner of the Snook Nook B ait and Tackle shop in J ensen Beach.

I spent many of my teenage years and then some in Palm Bay. I remember the excitement I felt when a new course would open. My father, a few of his golf buddies, along with my friends would play the municipal courses around the area. My family belonged to Port Malabar Country Club and I spent a lot of time r oaming those fairways. One thing I remember well was the feeling of anticipation as we watched Palm Ga r dens Golf Course being built on Minton Road in West M elbourne. We couldn't wait to try a new course. P alm Gardens GC opened in 1979, the same year I started senior high at Palm B ay High School. It was nothing like what we were used to playing. The course took no tee times. It was "first come, first served" all day, every day. There was no driving range, but there were practice or warm-up nets and a putting green. One thing I remember about the course, that is true to this day, is that it is family o wned and operated. It's easy to feel right at home when y ou're here. The course, designed by E dward C. Ryder, consists of only nine holes, and plays to a par of 30. There are two sets of tees, one playing to 1,596 yards, the other 1,411. The layout is great for seniors, beginners and juniors, as well as better players who wish to work on their accuracy and course management. The many lakes, narrow fairways and pesky bunkers offer plenty of challenge to golfers of every skill. If y ou're looking for a quick game after work or to start the weekend before the rest of the family gets out of bed, this is your course. You can walk it very easily and without having to carry more than a half-dozen clubs. P alm Gardens starts off with its most intriguing hole. The first is a par-4 that makes a 90 degree dogleg right that starts about 200yards off the tee. Hit your drive much farther than that and you will find yourself in trees or water. Anything too short and you'll find your short approach blocked by trees. The second hole is a 135yard par-3 with a very narrow, y et deep green. Missing right or left means you will likely find sand. The third is a 300-yard par4 that requires a well-placed fairway wood or hybrid off the tee. A large bunker guards the front of the large green. M easuring about 175yards from the back tees, the fourth hole is the second longest par-3 on the course. It is also the only hole without a bunker and boasts the largest green. At the par-3 fifth, you will likely hit another different club from the tee. While Palm Ga r dens GC is short and tight, every hole is a different length and makes you hit different clubs at nearly every tee. It's a great design trait, which often isn't found on much longer, much more expensive tracks. Fr om the back tees, the sixth hole can play as long as 200 yards. Bunkers guard this green on both sides. Between the tee and the green trees pinch in at the sides, making the hole feel narrower than it is. Y ou can practically throw y our ball from the tee onto the seventh green which is completely surrounded by four bunkers. The eighth hole has water from the tee all the way to the green and guarding the left side. If you play too safely to the right you bring more sand and trees into play. If every great course has a r isk-reward finishing hole, then put Palm Gardens on that list. The ninth is a par-4 that can be played in many ways. From the tee you can thread a wedge or short iron onto the fairway protected by water on both sides. Or, you can pull out a big stick and try to reach the green 225yards away. Right of the green is out-of-bounds, left is the clubhouse. Anything else not on the green is likely wet or covered in sand. It's a hole that can win or lose you your match. P alm Gardens GC is quite fun and a quick stroll if you only have a couple of hours to play. R ates are great as well. To walk and play nine holes is less than $12. There are also single ($600) and family ($780) memberships that give y ou unlimited greens fees for an entire year.
