How to keep your poinsettias alive until next year, if you wish P ageB5 Sevin Bullwinkle /staff photographerL eigha Wells of Jensen Beach watches as her 2-year old daughter Aleighna plays in the snow. County graduation rates rise Ma r tin County school administrators celebrated last week as Martin C ounty Schools were ranked third in the state in Florida Department of E ducation's Federal Graduation Rate r eport. The graduation rate for the 201213 school year was 87.71 percent, up 2.82 percent from 2011-2012 and w ell over the Florida average of 75.57 percent. Their graduation rate trumps St. Lucie County by 20 percent and Palm Beach County by 11.4 percent. "I t' s such a great thing to celebrate," said Ginger Featherstone, assistant superintendent. S uperintendent Laurie Gaylord congratulated teachers and students by visiting each Martin County high school with a bouquet of balloons. "I 'm personally elated," said Ms. F eatherstone. "It's certainly telling of the dedication of the community, the administration, the teachers, the parents and the students." B ut the rise in graduation percentages doesn't just happen; it takes much planning and hard work by dozens of individuals. To ensure that every student is getting the best chance at graduation, a team of administrators, guidance counselors, teachers and parents meet to develop a plan of attack for students at risk of not graduating on time. They determine as the students enter ninth grade which of them might benefit from having a peer mentor, a tutor or an adult mentor to help them get the credits they need, keep their grades up, and ensure 086003 MARTIN COUNTY V ol. 12, No. 29 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 20, 2013 780297 IN DEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B4 Obituaries B5 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 V iewpoint A6Snook harvest seasonal closure in Atlantic began Dec. 15The recreational harvest season for snook closes Dec. 15 in Atlantic state and federal waters, including Lake O keechobee and the Kissimmee River, and will remain closed through Jan. 31, 2014, r eopening to harvest Feb. 1.

A ccording to Marilyn G avitt, coordinator of instructional technology for the Martin County School District, the dedicated week is all about awareness and ensuring students know how to protect themselves. As a school district we 'r e obligated to make sure kids look at cyber safety," Ms. Gavitt said. The week will be full of activities coordinated by school media specialists that include instructional videos, pledges, public service announcements and more to ensure kids know how to protect their privacy. Ma r tin County Schools want to ensure their students are being responsible while surfing the web. "A good digital citizen is someone who doesn't bully anyone online, doesn't give out personal information, doesn't meet people offline (that they met online), doesn't take creative property and claim it as their o wn," Ms. Gavitt said. Ms. Gavitt's tips for safety include using kind words, never saying anything online or in a text message that they wouldn't say in person, and getting adults involved if kids or teens see something online that is suspicious or makes them uncomfortable. "B y having a Cyber S afety Week we really bring it to the forefront and help our students be safe online," Ms. G avitt said. It 's information the school district has offered for quite some time, but it was Ms. G avitt's idea to combine it all into one concentrated week instead of drawing it out for an entire school year. She wanted to show that Ma r tin County Schools we re taking the topic seriously. That's when she came up with the idea for an easy, concise way to get Medical center opens in Indiantown INDIANTOWN I ndiantown is finally getting a much-needed addition to the community in the form of a brand new medical center. The iTown Medical Center is scheduled to open in January in the Indiantown C ommunity Service Center thanks to Indiantown NonPr ofit Housing, Dr. M. K amal Syed and M uhammed Nooruddin, RPT who are running the operation. INPHI is providing the space and funding the upfront costs for pricey equipment and waiving rent fees for the first year in order to get the clinic on its feet so it can accommodate the needs of the people of I ndiantown. "W e' re doing what we always do; we're reinvesting in our community," said Donna Carman, executive director at INPHI. Dr Syed is a primary care physician on staff at Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee, Martin Medical C enter in Stuart and Tradition Medical Center in Port S t. Lucie and Dr. Nooruddin has more than 20 years' experience as a physical therapist and has been working in a small I ndiantown office on a parttime basis. "I think they're going to do an excellent job," Ms. Ca r man said. "I've heard nothing but good things." The iTown Medical Center will be the second health center in Indiantown, good news for the more than 10,000 residents who have had to manage with just one small practice or drive more than 20 minutes away to the next closest center in Stuart.

Penney's toy department.Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Thirteen year old Hidden Oaks Middle School students Carly Witte and Maddie Reinhart shop for Christmas gifts for a needy family at Claire's.Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer MARTIN COUNTY A ccording to Curt Seeley, T eam Leader for the Visually I mpaired Program for Martin County Schools, there's only so much teaching that can be done in the classr oom. That's why he brought eight of his students from kindergarten to 12th grade to the Treasure Coast Mall last Fr iday to give them firsthand experience shopping independently and to help a family in need while doing it. F or 20 years, Mr. Seeley has organized the outing for his visually impaired students to teach them orientation and mobility and purchase gifts for a family that might not get any otherwise. He asks area churches and schools to make recommendations for a family that could use a little extra cheer each year and takes the students out to buy toys and clothes to brighten their holidays. In class he teaches the kids to be independent travelers using canes, landmarks and special enlarged or tactile maps that they've created to help them navigate the mall. The tactile maps have raised symbols to represent stores and hallways. Once there, they put to use what they've learned over the past days and weeks and head out to the stores to fill their baskets full of gifts for others. "I t helps me help them," Mr. Seeley said. "The end goal is to be independent." And the mall is just the place to do it. "I t' s a good environment," Mr. Seeley said. "It's safe and there's no traffic." The Stuart Police Department even partners with the program, donating money for the gifts the students will buy, transporting them from school to the mall in the morning, and even shopping with them. At the mall they must put the skills they've learned in the classroom to good use as they recall the layout of the stores, pick out gifts, and make a purchase, all in the spirit of giving. "W e just want to do some good for the community," Mr. Seeley said. "They are visually impaired, but there are people in the community that are less fortunate than them." S ome of the students have low vision and some are blind, but all enjoy a day out of the classroom shopping for others. "I t' s important because some kids don't get any toys for Christmas," said Josh O'Connor, a second grade student at Citrus Grove Elementary. J osh and Jesus Garcia, a fourth grade student also from Citrus Grove, were both thrilled to pick out toys for other children and to sit down to lunch at Ruby Tuesday's afterward. It warms Mr. Seeley's heart to see the students enjoying themselves as he shows them that even though they are visually impaired they can still do good for the community.

they graduate with their classmates. "E very child is different and you have to create an action plan based on that child," Ms. Featherstone said. S he said they get better at identifying and encouraging at-risk students every year, using mainly FCAT scores, and evaluate what works and what doesn't based on data collected. The schools monitor students' progress and follow up to make sure their efforts are not in vain. Ms. Featherstone believes it's that work with at-risk students that has increased Ma r tin County Schools' graduation rates, but she knows it's not those efforts alone; it's also about ensuring they are known, valued and inspired. When a student knows y ou care about their success, they strive to succeed," Ms. F eatherstone said. B ecause as much as she would love for Martin County Schools to be number one in the state for graduation rates, seeing 100 percent of her students graduate on time, it's also about touching students' lives and preparing them for the road ahead. "O ur hope is that we continue to provide our students with the best academic envir onment to be successful so they can earn their diploma and move on to the next step in their life," Ms. Featherstone said. A dministration plans to continue providing support to students, valuing them as individuals, and encouraging them to succeed so Martin C ounty Schools remain tops in the state for graduation r ates.

Sometimes y ou literally cannot read the print because it is so small. The disclaimers you read below were taken from a r ecent edition of a local paper. I didn't make any of these up. Basically what these disclaimers do is to totally negate the validity of all of the prices and payments the car dealers are advertising. The prices and payments are always much higher when you factor in the almost invisible fine print. C ombining a very short lease term with a high down payment. Nothing sells cars like low monthly payments. A car dealer can make a monthly lease payment as low as he wants by both r educing the number of months of the lease and increasing the down payment. I'm looking at an ad in the paper right now advertising an SUV for $19,999 or just $199 per month. In the fine print it says 27-month lease and $3,000 down plus a $799 dealer fee. "Plus dealer installed options" The price you see advertised in the paper is not the full price. This loophole allows the dealer to tack on thousands of dollars in ov erpriced accessories to the price that was advertised. D ealers often charge well ov er one thousand dollars for floor mats, adhesive pin stripes, and flimsy plastic door edge guards. "Advertised offer good on select in-stock vehicles only" D ealers often advertise just one car at a price below their cost. They don't pay the salesman a commission if he sells that vehicle. The chances of that car being available for you to buy are slim and none." Even if the car was still there, the salesman would do everything in his power to sell you a different car that he could earn a commission on. "Owner Loyalty Rebate." M anufacturers offer special cash rebates to current o wners of their car. These r ebates are not available to y ou if you don't currently o wn that particular make of car. For example, if you own a Honda, and want to buy a To y ota, you don't qualify for a Toyota loyalty rebate. That price you see advertised won't be available. Other exclusionary rebates are Co llege Graduate rebates and Military rebates. These are great for recent graduates and service men and women, but do not apply to the majority of consumers. It is also very common to see dealers combine all three: loyalty, college graduate and military rebates, making it virtually impossible for any consumer to take advantage of. "Price plus, tax, tag, and fees." The red flag word here is "fees." The fees these dealers refer to is a "dealer fee," which is synonymous for dealer profit. Most people think it's a federal or state tax of some kind. It's nothing more than more money for the dealer that is not disclosed in the price of the car. "Offers expire date of publication or may be cancelled at any time without notice." This simply means that the prices, payments, etc. you have read have no validity whatsoever. The prices are not good tomorrow, but they aren't even any good today because the dealer can cancel the offer without notice. "Not responsible for typographical errors." This is just one more way for a dealer to explain why they can't sell you the car for the advertised priceWe don't have to honor that price because it was a "typographical error." "Vehicle Art for illustrations only." This means that that car you are looking at with the really great looking wheels might not have those wheels on the one you buy. Or, maybe it doesn't even have those alloy wheels you see in the picture. "Minimum trade based on dealer list price". The dealer list price is not the same thing as the manufacturers suggest price. D ealers add markups to the M onroney label also known as MSRP or manufacturer's suggested retail price. They label this markup (often on a sticker designed to imitate the official federal Monroney label). Dealer markups of $3,000 and much more are common on such "counterfeit Monroney" labels. In this case, the dealer has marked up the MSRP far enough so that he can offer a minimum $10,000 trade-in allowance. "$4,000 Trade Equity R equired." This is another deceptive way to advertise a super low car payment. How many of us have $4,000 in equity in our trades? Certainly not the majority of consumers! My advice to you is to ignore all car dealers' newspaper advertising. Most car ads are designed to "get y ou in the door" so that they can sell you some other car than the one advertised so that they can make more money. If you must respond to a dealer's newspaper ad, please be sure you break out y our magnifying glass and carefully read the fine print. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 20, 2013 Martin County A3 Call 334-5901for an appointmentThe Atlantic Animal Clinic1315 NE Sunview Terr. € Jensen Beach086009 P uppy and Kitten package offeredat $250.00Pa ckage include your pets necessary vaccines,microchip and spay or neuter.

The St. Lucie C ounty HOME Consortium is a recipient of Federal HOME Investment Partnership Program funds. The objective of the HOME program is to provide decent and affordable housing opportunities for very lowand low-income households through activities such as: first-time homebuyer assistance and homeo wner housing rehabilitation.KnowF rom page A1will offer medical, radiology and rehabilitation services including primary care, lab services, x-rays, occupational therapy and more. Ms. Carman said the curr ent facility, Florida Community Health Center, is an excellent one, but their ability to serve everyone in the community is limited. Add in the fact that low-income r esidents are given priority and a second medical center is all but necessary. "W e' re trying to find a way to improve the availability of health care for the entire community," Ms. Carman said. R esidents won't be the only ones benefitting from the new full-service facility, however. Local business will also have a place to send their employees for physicals, drug tests and workers compensation related services. Ms. Carman said it will also be a draw for potential employers looking for new locations for their businesses. F ourteen full-time and fourteen part-time employees will staff the new location, including nurse practitioners, practical nurses, therapists and technicians. The iTown Medical Center will be open from 8 a.m.to 5 p .m.five days per week at 15516 S.W.Osceola St., Indi antown. Education Center reopens with more classes, hours INDIANTOWN Indian River State College is continuing their mission of being an accessible and affordable option for education by re-opening their I ndiantown Education Center with more classes and set hours than ever before. The facility has been used by IRSC since 2001, offering va r ied classes and even housing GED programs, but now it will be an improved r esource for new and curr ent students. The central Indiantown location is meant to offer easy access to Indiantown r esidents interested in furthering their education as fullor part-time students but who don't have the time or resources to travel to the Chastain Campus in Stuart several days a week. "I t' s really just more convenient," said Elizabeth G askin, Provost of Martin C ounty for IRSC. "The less (students) have to worry about travel and the time it takes to get to class the more time they'll have to devote to their studies." Fi ve classes will be offered at the new center including Spanish for daily use I, college computing, child development and education, intermediate algebra and English composition I. S ome are basic classes r equired for a degree, others, such as Child development and Spanish, were r equested by residents and business people in the area that IRSC surveyed in order to find out what classes would be most beneficial for them. "W e' ve really been trying to see what needs we could meet out there," Ms. Gaskin said. "We're trying to provide them with more r esources." The center will also operate under set hours. Whereas before hours at the center va r ied depending on when a staff member was present, now the center will be open 20 hours a week, noon to 8 p .m. on Mondays and W ednesdays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays, for classes and the use of computers. "H opefully we can attract students for whom education has not been a convenient option," Ms. Gaskin said. IRSC hosted a registration night on Dec. 16 to help potential and current students with the application and registration process, giving them a chance to ask questions and get all the information they required. Ms. Gaskin said the goal for the new site is to meet the needs of the community and maybe expand the offerings list in the future to contribute to the local workforce and economy in a positive way. C urrent and potential I ndiantown students can apply and register online at www.irsc.edu or ask questions about the new center by calling Leticia Martinez, I ndiantown Representative, at (772) 597-5130.

Acomplaint Ihear often is "the internet is down." Every time someone says that to me I can't help but picture in my mind computers all ov er the world stopped in their tracks and displaying some type of error. Email messages no longer bouncing from node to node, Netflix accounts standing still with an hourglass spinning and turning, Google searches stalled and coming up empty. What exactly do you mean the internet is down"? I ask (usually while looking at a fully functioning internet connection at my desk). I know that people count on the internet for so much but when one facet off the internet stops working does it really mean that the whole internet is "d ow n "? No, not quite. I imagine it's kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal or a message saying that the number you are trying to reach is not available. Does that mean the phone system is down? No it's just a problem connecting to that phone number. Or another way to look at it is seeing a "Road Closed" sign at the end of the street. Does that mean the entire highway system is down? No, not quite. When someone calls me and says that the internet is down I know I have to do some question asking to determine exactly what they mean by that statement. Just what problem do they have exactly to lead them to believe that the internet is "down"? M ost of the time, after asking a few simple questions and listening closely to the answers, the problem is one website that the caller is trying to access. They click a shortcut and the hourglass starts to twirl until it finally "times out" and displays an error message that the page cannot be displayed but does this mean that the internet is r eally down? I usually ask them to try accessing another site if they were trying to access Y ahoo.com and got that message I ask them to try Google. If they were trying to access Google then I ask them to try Yahoo. Usually they are unable to access one page but are able to access the other showing clearly that the internet is indeed "up." Or maybe it's an email problem they try to access email but get an error message. Sure I know it's frustrating when something people rely on every day suddenly stops working but to declare that the "internet is down" goes a little overboard as the problem is usually not as severe. So how does one figure out what is really going on? Well there are a lot of tools and techniques out there that can be used to discover the extent of the problem and one of my favorite tools can be used to check the status of a particular site and that tool is called "DownF orEveryoneOrJustMe.co m." The idea behind the site is that it is sometimes difficult to determine if a problem accessing a particular web address is a "local" problem (that is a problem with the "local" computer from which you are trying to access the site) or a problem with the w eb address you are trying to reach. When you have a problem accessing a web address try going to www.DownForEveryoneOr Ju stMe.com If the site opens then you know right off the bat that the internet is not "down" but r ather you are having a problem accessing a site (kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal). If DownForEveryoneOrJu stMe.com does open then type in the web address you are trying toA6 Martin County THIS WEEKS LUCKY THIS WEEKS LUCKYBUMPER STICKER VEHICLE Is this your license plate number?

Along with the snow and holiday games, the event featured hay rides around Indian RiverSide Park, holiday carols, and a chance to experience how other cultures around the world celebrate their holidays.Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer What's the big deal?I don't know why there's such an issue made with people saying "happy holidays" to one another. How in the world is that offensive? Do those who are up in arms about not hearing "Merry Christmas" really that darn self-centered and shallow that they are making T-shirts, taking to the airwaves and demanding that they are told one thing instead of another? How about they should just be happy their grumpy rump is told to be happy, merry or whatever the case may be. Who cares... is the "season" really about the greeting or is about being kind to one another? It's so sad.What's in a word?Let's keep Christ in Christmas.Happy holidays?B usiness plays a major role in determining the direction of a nation. At Christmas time, we are all too often greeted by "Happy Holidays." But, we can push back using our purchasing power. The next time we hear this politically correct nonsense, we are out-of-here. We don't have to accept it. What is marriage equality?Does marriage equality include brother and sister, or mother and son or father and daughter? And what about my dog? Do leftists believe I have the right to marry my F ido?Ignorance aboundsAfter reading all the rants that are aimed toward the r ecipients of welfare, it's quite obvious that ignorance is everywhere. Why doesn't this idiot just move? Find that r epublican utopia with no crime, no welfare, educated souls who feel the same way you do. Well, never mind the educated part... it's obvious you fell short of a full education. If you did have one, you'd understand a little more about "your" society. God help you if you fall on hard times and lose a job or have to bow your head for help. There has to be something more important to take up the v aluable space in the paper like, a cartoon or a Sudoku puzzle. W elfare is child slaveryW ell, kudos to those who have helped suppress the violence in the area. However, has anyone taken notice of the police blotter? It's a half-page young adults being arrested for dealing drugs. Now, this is just speculation but I'm betting that some of these kids come from welfare homes where the kids had no family guidance, but a young parent who had multiple kids just to get a welfare check. Now they're grown up and have a lack of education because their parents had no education. And all of this is brought to you from the federal government. Yes, many people I talk to, where ever I go can't stand this: when a young woman has a kid and she never even went to school, and then she has another, is most definitely wrong. Welfare should have been fixed as well but not by our current president because he wants socialism. I heard a local politician, a democrat, make the most sense by telling people to quit relying on the government so much. Well here's an idea: with these young kids that get busted for repeat offenses arrest the parents too for child neglect. They neglected to discipline the kid or kids that they had. Hold the kid and the parent accountable for the crime. Fort Pierce is a nice place but has a long way to go. People want jobs here, but they need to clean up the neighborhoods. Shame on them for just accepting the government as their only r ecourse. There's nothing someone can't attain in life to better themselves, they just have to apply themselves. Go to a park where there's wildlife and you'll see signs posted that say, "Don't feed the animals." Why? Because they become dependent on being fed. And, just like welfare r ecipients, they become dependent on the government to take care of them. Having and using kids to create an income is slavery. Thanks for voting for ObamaI would just like to thank all those from the treasure coast who voted for Obama. With the mentality that he would deliver you a much better life, now you have a deficit which is off the charts and a European nation that can't stand us, all brought to you by the people who want something for nothing. So much for your socialization... He re 's an idea: take care of your own selves, create your o wn destiny by way of getting an education, not have more babies to be on welfare and creating more poverty. Heck most of you can't read. By the way instead of sending the country further into the toilet, do those of us a favor that v alue genuine hard work: don't vote if you don't know what yo u' re re ally voting for. If you're just seeing what you can get out of other people, go jump in lake. I guess I had to keep it clean. Yes, I would really like to see all these young single mothers take care of themselves and not at the expense of others. Eliminate socialism. There are many people who became wealthy due to learning and creating and it wasn't from welfare. Back to the snowbirdsI must admit that many of the so-called citizens that call themselves southerners and true Floridians should read a bit better. You see, Florida was never one of the 13 colonies, so unless everyone who lives here is true Native American, your heritage is all from the so-called snowbirds. It was the influx of northerners in the late 1800s who came here as tourists and then decided to stay and start businesses and pump money into the Florida region. So before you start bad mouthing snowbirds, look to your history and learn something besides blaming your own faults on the northerners. When the snowbirds go home it's still is the so called southerners that are rude, believe traffic laws don't apply to them and complain when they close up their shop. Yet when was the last time you passed the big box stores and patronized those mom and pop shops that built Florida, the so called state you call home? Personally, I have yet to see a southerner that can work as hard as a northerner or as quick. Don't take me wrong, I have met a few fine people from the so-called south. But otherwise, a six-pack and thinking my vehicle is in the next r ace at Daytona just doesn't appeal to me. Case in point if not for the Northerners Florida would still be a swampland.No amnestyW ith Obamacare threatening to increase prices for all of us, it is unbelievable that some politicians still want to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. If we allow 11 or 12 million illegals to stay here, the cost would be astronomical, not just for health care, but for food stamps, public housing, education, and a long list of other taxpayer provided benefits. Fortunately, Marco Rubio has finally changed his mind and come to his senses. The term "earned path to citizenship" is foolish code for undeserved amnesty.L ove instead of hateLove can build many bridges between us all, and hate can only destroy them. Let us always remember the love instead of the hate, for hate will destroy us all. Let us keep in our hearts that men are men, and women are women no matter where you are from or what you look like. Let it be remembered that we are one race, the human r ace, and we should learn more about love and less about hate. Got something to say?

MARTIN COUNTY The Humane S ociety of the Treasure Coast is counting on the public to bring some joy to their shelter pets this holiday season. The goal is to place all of the available animals in a foster home Dec. 21-Jan. 5, 2014. I ndividuals must complete the appropriate foster paperwork and r equirements before taking a pet home. S tarting at 10 a.m., Dec. 21, approved foster families may come to the shelter and choose an animal in the adoption area. The animals must be picked up no later than 2 p .m., Tues., Dec. 24. The foster parents, or "guardian angels," will be encouraged to help the HSTC find a permanent home for their foster pet. All animals need to be adopted or r eturned back to the shelter by Sun., J an. 5, 2014. The HSTC prefers that participants provide food bowls, bedding and toys for their foster pet, but the shelter will assist if needed. Through last y ear's program, the HSTC fostered 22 animals and all were adopted. The HSTC is hoping to double that this y ear. Eventually, all the animals that we re included in this program were adopted. "N o pets will be placed on hold so it is a first come, first served basis," said Candice Veach, HSTC operations manager. To view the pets currently available for adoption, visit http://www.hstc1.org The shelter is located at 4100 S.W. Leighton Farm Ave., Palm City. A doption hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m., M on.-Sat.; 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Wed.; and 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Sun. F or more information,call Bitsy Mc K ay at (772) 600-3217 or (772) 223-8822 or visit www.hstc1.org. Red Cross issues safety tips to prevent holiday home fires The American Red Cross urges residents to take extra precautions with cooking and decorating around the holidays. "C ooking is the leading cause of home fires, and as people are cooking, entertaining, and stringing lights this holiday season, we 'r e urging that they take safety measures to ensure that their homes and loved ones are safe from the threat of fire," said Carlos C astillo, Regional Disaster Pr ogram Officer. Christmas Day, Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving are the top three days for cooking fires, according to the National Fire Prevention Association. Nationally, the Red Cross responds to a disaster on average every eight minutes, and the vast majority of them are home fires. The Red Cross has some simple steps everyone can follow to prevent home fires around the holidays:Holiday entertaining Test your smoke alarms. Check food regularly while cooking and remain in the home while cooking. U se a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Enforce a "kid-free z one" in the cooking area and make children stay at least three feet away from the stove. Keep anything that can catch fire away from the stove, oven or any appliance in the kitchen that generates heat. Clean cooking surfaces on a regular basis to prevent grease buildup. Purchase a fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen. Contact the local fire department to receive training on the proper use of extinguishers.Holiday decorating Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. Keep children, pets and decorations away from lit candles. Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet. Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer's instructions for the number of LED strands to connect. Some strings of lights are only for in door or outdoor use, but not both. Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. Keep decorations away from windows and doors. Pe ople should also download the free American Red Cr oss First Aid app, which provides instant access to information on handling the most common first aid emergencies. The apps can be downloaded from the A pple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross or by visiting r edcross.org/mobileapps P eople can test their knowledge on how to prevent home fires by taking the Fire Safety Quiz and can learn more about fire prevention by visiting redcross.org.

Firefighters make teddy bears for patients P ALM BEACH GARDENS While children everywhere on Christmas morning jump from bed to see what's under the tree, the ones at St. Mary's Hospital will wake up in a setting far from the comforts of home. Fo r tunately, they'll havecomfy teddy bears to cuddle themselves to sleep thanks to Martin County Fi r efighters. On Dec. 11, more than a dozen Martin County Firefighters arrived at the B uild-A-Bear Workshop in the Gardens Mall in West P alm Beach to stuff, stitch and accessorize more than 70 toy bears for sick children this holiday season. "A lthough we can't give them a cure for Christmas, we can still give them the gift of happiness and take their minds off of their conditions, even if it's just for a short time," says John D avidson, president of the Ma r tin County Firefighter's Association. "They deserve to feel as special as they truly are, and well do anything in our power to make sure that happens." S isters and Stuart residents Destiny and Jade N eumann were only 9 and 11, respectively, when they first got involved in donating several teddy bears to the children at St. Mary's H ospital. Now teenagers, they helped involve Martin C ounty Firefighters in the effort. The bears were handdelivered them on Dec. 19 to the children receiving treatment at the Palm B each Children's Hospital at St. Mary's Medical Center.

MARTIN COUNTY It's Dr Michael Henning's mission to eliminate pain and bring smiles back to his patients' faces in as little time as possible using so much more than conventional chir opractic techniques. He 's one of as few as 100 chiropractors in the nation that can also say they're board certified neurologists and he specializes in treating nerve-related problems at his P alm City practice that opened in July. Mr. Henning grew up in P alm City and received his doctorate in 2010 then went on to practice as an associate with other doctors as he worked toward his post-doctorate in neurology. That training makes me that much more capable to treat the problems people come in with," Mr. Henning said. No w it's his pleasure to make people feel better faster using advanced diagnostic testing to pinpoint issues so he can offer solutions. "M y area of expertise is between where conservative care stops and surgery begins," Mr. Henning said. Ne rv e-related problems are an area not often covered by traditional chiropractic care and he wants to fill the gap in treatment. He treats headaches, vertigo, numbness in the hands and feet, sciatica, even disc herniations that many don't realize are treatable. He also offers massage and physical and spinal decompression therapies as part of his regimen, whatever it takes to make his patients better. He uses many advanced testing procedures that assess the heath of nerves and muscles to identify underlying causes of pain and discomfort, procedures that offer vital information to r emedy problems quicker than trial and error. "W e' re able to make people feel better faster than the traditional chiropractor." Mr. H enning said. "We make people feel better when others can't." That's what gets him out of bed in the morning and he invites anyone with back or neck pain, headaches, pinched nerves or any other discomfort to come in for a free consultation and initial exam and x-rays. He ll use his wealth of wisdom and training to devise solutions that get patients back to feeling themselves in as few visits as possible.

Once the holiday season comes to a close, many of us will have an abundance of holiday plants to nurture for an entire year so we can enjoy them again next year. One of the most popular gifts of the holiday season are Amaryllis bulbs. Amaryllis bulbs are r elatively easy to take of. If y ou give them adequate water and bright light they should bloom in about six w eeks. The best way to water is to keep the plants evenly moist. Do not water so much that the plants are sitting in standing water. Keep the plants on a windowsill or on a protected porch for the best r esults. If your bulbs are too small in size, you may have to wait till next year before you get blooms to form. If y ou received a Norfolk Pine as a gift or bought one for yourself, you can successfully grow them indoors. As a matter of fact, I recommend that you either grow them indoors or plant them in a container. I do not recommend planting them outdoors. These trees do not fare w ell in hurricane force winds and they grow extremely large. W ith that said, Norfolk Pines will do extremely well in an indoor environment as long as there is ample light. P osition your plant near a window sill so it will receive a bit of sun daily. These plants will do best if they are watered on a regular schedule. Keep the plants evenly moist but not dripping wet. Do not allow the plants to sit in standing water. Norfolk Pines also enjoy a humid environment so if the plant is indoors, you may find it beneficial to lightly mist the plant from time to time to help increase the humidity around the plant. Improper watering can result in needle loss that will not regenerate itself. In addition, never try to prune the tree to shape it. The only pruning that should be done on this plant is for basic maintenance such as trimming off dead or yellow lower branches. In the past I have discussed about how to choose and nurture Poinsettia plants during the holidays. These delicate plants can also be planted outdoors when the season is over. F irst, choose a location that is sheltered away from strong winds and the full direct rays of the summer sun. Also, choose an area where you can control the artificial light at night so you can get your plants to bloom next season with minimal effort. Use a good quality potting mix to place your plants in the ground and be sure it is a well-drained location. It might be wise to r epot your plant in a large pot until all danger of frost and cold weather has past. March would be a great transition month to place your prize in the ground. Once the plant is planted and established, be sure to trim off all the old red bracts. You will need to do this in order to get blooms next season. No w comes the tricky part. S tarting around November or sooner, the plant is going to need long nights in order to r e-bloom. During this twomonth period you will need to eliminate as much as possible all signs of artificial lighting at night. Keep the area as dark as possible. This is the key to getting new blooms for the holidays. One of the biggest problems you might encounter with a poinsettia plant is root r ot. Often times, you will see poinsettia plants wilting as if they were not watered in days. You go to check the soil and it is still moist. So why is the plant wilting? Actually, the poinsettia most likely has a root fungus or disease that is preventing the plant from taking on water. That explains the wilted condition. This is usually caused from the plant being in soil that ov erly moist. This condition will almost always lead to a dead plant. In addition, you must also keep watchful eye out for whiteflies. Treat them at the very first indication with Orthenex. With a little luck and some skill, you should be rewarded with some great holiday color in y our garden next season.

Merry Christmas! H appy Hanukkah! (Y es, I know it's late.) H appy Kwanzaa! Whatever y our religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season. This is a great time of year. It 's a time for families and friends to be together... a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women make every day. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how much you love them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. T imes may be tough, but there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. At this time of year we all tend to be more humane, kind and caring. My wish is that we would keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I now present you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.

How to keep your poinsettias alive until next year, if you wish P ageB5 Sevin Bullwinkle/staff photographerL eigha Wells of Jensen Beach watches as her 2-year old daughter Aleighna plays in the snow. County graduation rates rise Ma r tin County school administrators celebrated last week as Martin C ounty Schools were ranked third in the state in Florida Department of E ducations Federal Graduation Rate r eport. The graduation rate for the 201213 school year was 87.71 percent, up 2.82 percent from 2011-2012 and w ell over the Florida average of 75.57 percent. Their graduation rate trumps St. Lucie County by 20 percent and Palm Beach County by 11.4 percent. I t s such a great thing to celebrate, said Ginger Featherstone, assistant superintendent. S uperintendent Laurie Gaylord congratulated teachers and students by visiting each Martin County high school with a bouquet of balloons. I m personally elated, said Ms. F eatherstone. Its certainly telling of the dedication of the community, the administration, the teachers, the parents and the students. B ut the rise in graduation percentages doesnt just happen; it takes much planning and hard work by dozens of individuals. To ensure that every student is getting the best chance at graduation, a team of administrators, guidance counselors, teachers and parents meet to develop a plan of attack for students at risk of not graduating on time. They determine as the students enter ninth grade which of them might benefit from having a peer mentor, a tutor or an adult mentor to help them get the credits they need, keep their grades up, and ensure 086003 MARTIN COUNTYV ol. 12, No. 29 Your Local News and Information Source www.HometownNewsOL.com Friday, Dec. 20, 2013 780297 INDEXClassifiedB6 Crossword B4 Obituaries B5 Out & AboutB1 P olice Report A5 Viewpoint A6Snook harvest seasonal closure in Atlantic began Dec. 15The recreational harvest season for snook closes Dec. 15 in Atlantic state and federal waters, including Lake O keechobee and the Kissimmee River, and will remain closed through Jan. 31, 2014, r eopening to harvest Feb. 1.

A ccording to Marilyn G avitt, coordinator of instructional technology for the Martin County School District, the dedicated week is all about awareness and ensuring students know how to protect themselves. As a school district we r e obligated to make sure kids look at cyber safety, Ms. Gavitt said. The week will be full of activities coordinated by school media specialists that include instructional videos, pledges, public service announcements and more to ensure kids know how to protect their privacy. Ma r tin County Schools want to ensure their students are being responsible while surfing the web. A good digital citizen is someone who doesnt bully anyone online, doesnt give out personal information, doesnt meet people offline (that they met online), doesnt take creative property and claim it as their o wn, Ms. Gavitt said. Ms. Gavitts tips for safety include using kind words, never saying anything online or in a text message that they wouldnt say in person, and getting adults involved if kids or teens see something online that is suspicious or makes them uncomfortable. B y having a Cyber S afety Week we really bring it to the forefront and help our students be safe online, Ms. G avitt said. It s information the school district has offered for quite some time, but it was Ms. G avitts idea to combine it all into one concentrated week instead of drawing it out for an entire school year. She wanted to show that Ma r tin County Schools we re taking the topic seriously. Thats when she came up with the idea for an easy, concise way to get Medical center opens in Indiantown INDIANTOWN I ndiantown is finally getting a much-needed addition to the community in the form of a brand new medical center. The iTown Medical Center is scheduled to open in January in the Indiantown C ommunity Service Center thanks to Indiantown NonPr ofit Housing, Dr. M. K amal Syed and M uhammed Nooruddin, RPT who are running the operation. INPHI is providing the space and funding the upfront costs for pricey equipment and waiving rent fees for the first year in order to get the clinic on its feet so it can accommodate the needs of the people of Indiantown. W e re doing what we always do; were reinvesting in our community, said Donna Carman, executive director at INPHI. Dr Syed is a primary care physician on staff at Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee, Martin Medical C enter in Stuart and Tradition Medical Center in Port S t. Lucie and Dr. Nooruddin has more than 20 years experience as a physical therapist and has been working in a small I ndiantown office on a parttime basis. I think theyre going to do an excellent job, Ms. Ca r man said. Ive heard nothing but good things. The iTown Medical Center will be the second health center in Indiantown, good news for the more than 10,000 residents who have had to manage with just one small practice or drive more than 20 minutes away to the next closest center in Stuart.

Thats why he brought eight of his students from kindergarten to 12th grade to the Treasure Coast Mall last Fr iday to give them firsthand experience shopping independently and to help a family in need while doing it. F or 20 years, Mr. Seeley has organized the outing for his visually impaired students to teach them orientation and mobility and purchase gifts for a family that might not get any otherwise. He asks area churches and schools to make recommendations for a family that could use a little extra cheer each year and takes the students out to buy toys and clothes to brighten their holidays. In class he teaches the kids to be independent travelers using canes, landmarks and special enlarged or tactile maps that theyve created to help them navigate the mall. The tactile maps have raised symbols to represent stores and hallways. Once there, they put to use what theyve learned over the past days and weeks and head out to the stores to fill their baskets full of gifts for others. I t helps me help them, Mr. Seeley said. The end goal is to be independent. And the mall is just the place to do it. I t s a good environment, Mr. Seeley said. Its safe and theres no traffic. The Stuart Police Department even partners with the program, donating money for the gifts the students will buy, transporting them from school to the mall in the morning, and even shopping with them. At the mall they must put the skills theyve learned in the classroom to good use as they recall the layout of the stores, pick out gifts, and make a purchase, all in the spirit of giving. W e just want to do some good for the community, Mr. Seeley said. They are visually impaired, but there are people in the community that are less fortunate than them. S ome of the students have low vision and some are blind, but all enjoy a day out of the classroom shopping for others. I t s important because some kids dont get any toys for Christmas, said Josh OConnor, a second grade student at Citrus Grove Elementary. J osh and Jesus Garcia, a fourth grade student also from Citrus Grove, were both thrilled to pick out toys for other children and to sit down to lunch at Ruby Tuesdays afterward. It warms Mr. Seeleys heart to see the students enjoying themselves as he shows them that even though they are visually impaired they can still do good for the community.

they graduate with their classmates. E very child is different and you have to create an action plan based on that child, Ms. Featherstone said. S he said they get better at identifying and encouraging at-risk students every year, using mainly FCAT scores, and evaluate what works and what doesnt based on data collected. The schools monitor students progress and follow up to make sure their efforts are not in vain. Ms. Featherstone believes its that work with at-risk students that has increased Mar tin County Schools graduation rates, but she knows its not those efforts alone; its also about ensuring they are known, valued and inspired. When a student knows y ou care about their success, they strive to succeed, Ms. F eatherstone said. B ecause as much as she would love for Martin County Schools to be number one in the state for graduation rates, seeing 100 percent of her students graduate on time, its also about touching students lives and preparing them for the road ahead. O ur hope is that we continue to provide our students with the best academic envir onment to be successful so they can earn their diploma and move on to the next step in their life, Ms. Featherstone said. A dministration plans to continue providing support to students, valuing them as individuals, and encouraging them to succeed so Martin C ounty Schools remain tops in the state for graduation r ates.

Sometimes y ou literally cannot read the print because it is so small. The disclaimers you read below were taken from a r ecent edition of a local paper. I didnt make any of these up. Basically what these disclaimers do is to totally negate the validity of all of the prices and payments the car dealers are advertising. The prices and payments are always much higher when you factor in the almost invisible fine print. C ombining a very short lease term with a high down payment. Nothing sells cars like low monthly payments. A car dealer can make a monthly lease payment as low as he wants by both r educing the number of months of the lease and increasing the down payment. Im looking at an ad in the paper right now advertising an SUV for $19,999 or just $199 per month. In the fine print it says 27-month lease and $3,000 down plus a $799 dealer fee. "Plus dealer installed options" The price you see advertised in the paper is not the full price. This loophole allows the dealer to tack on thousands of dollars in ov erpriced accessories to the price that was advertised. D ealers often charge well ov er one thousand dollars for floor mats, adhesive pin stripes, and flimsy plastic door edge guards. "Advertised offer good on select in-stock vehicles only" D ealers often advertise just one car at a price below their cost. They dont pay the salesman a commission if he sells that vehicle. The chances of that car being available for you to buy are slim and none. Even if the car was still there, the salesman would do everything in his power to sell you a different car that he could earn a commission on. "Owner Loyalty Rebate." M anufacturers offer special cash rebates to current o wners of their car. These r ebates are not available to y ou if you dont currently o wn that particular make of car. For example, if you own a Honda, and want to buy a Toy ota, you dont qualify for a Toyota loyalty rebate. That price you see advertised wont be available. Other exclusionary rebates are Co llege Graduate rebates and Military rebates. These are great for recent graduates and service men and women, but do not apply to the majority of consumers. It is also very common to see dealers combine all three: loyalty, college graduate and military rebates, making it virtually impossible for any consumer to take advantage of. "Price plus, tax, tag, and fees." The red flag word here is fees. The fees these dealers refer to is a dealer fee, which is synonymous for dealer profit. Most people think its a federal or state tax of some kind. Its nothing more than more money for the dealer that is not disclosed in the price of the car. "Offers expire date of publication or may be cancelled at any time without notice." This simply means that the prices, payments, etc. you have read have no validity whatsoever. The prices are not good tomorrow, but they arent even any good today because the dealer can cancel the offer without notice. "Not responsible for typographical errors." This is just one more way for a dealer to explain why they cant sell you the car for the advertised priceWe dont have to honor that price because it was a typographical error. "Vehicle Art for illustrations only." This means that that car you are looking at with the really great looking wheels might not have those wheels on the one you buy. Or, maybe it doesnt even have those alloy wheels you see in the picture. "Minimum trade based on dealer list price". The dealer list price is not the same thing as the manufacturers suggest price. D ealers add markups to the M onroney label also known as MSRP or manufacturers suggested retail price. They label this markup (often on a sticker designed to imitate the official federal Monroney label). Dealer markups of $3,000 and much more are common on such counterfeit Monroney labels. In this case, the dealer has marked up the MSRP far enough so that he can offer a minimum $10,000 trade-in allowance. $4,000 Trade Equity R equired. This is another deceptive way to advertise a super low car payment. How many of us have $4,000 in equity in our trades? Certainly not the majority of consumers! My advice to you is to ignore all car dealers newspaper advertising. Most car ads are designed to get y ou in the door so that they can sell you some other car than the one advertised so that they can make more money. If you must respond to a dealers newspaper ad, please be sure you break out y our magnifying glass and carefully read the fine print. www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 20, 2013 Martin County A3 Call 334-5901for an appointmentThe Atlantic Animal Clinic1315 NE Sunview Terr.

The St. Lucie C ounty HOME Consortium is a recipient of Federal HOME Investment Partnership Program funds. The objective of the HOME program is to provide decent and affordable housing opportunities for very lowand low-income households through activities such as: first-time homebuyer assistance and homeo wner housing rehabilitation.KnowF rom page A1will offer medical, radiology and rehabilitation services including primary care, lab services, x-rays, occupational therapy and more. Ms. Carman said the curr ent facility, Florida Community Health Center, is an excellent one, but their ability to serve everyone in the community is limited. Add in the fact that low-income r esidents are given priority and a second medical center is all but necessary. W e re trying to find a way to improve the availability of health care for the entire community, Ms. Carman said. R esidents wont be the only ones benefitting from the new full-service facility, however. Local business will also have a place to send their employees for physicals, drug tests and workers compensation related services. Ms. Carman said it will also be a draw for potential employers looking for new locations for their businesses. F ourteen full-time and fourteen part-time employees will staff the new location, including nurse practitioners, practical nurses, therapists and technicians. The iTown Medical Center will be open from 8 a.m.to 5 p .m.five days per week at 15516 S.W.Osceola St., Indiantown. Education Center reopens with more classes, hours INDIANTOWN Indian River State College is continuing their mission of being an accessible and affordable option for education by re-opening their I ndiantown Education Center with more classes and set hours than ever before. The facility has been used by IRSC since 2001, offering va r ied classes and even housing GED programs, but now it will be an improved r esource for new and curr ent students. The central Indiantown location is meant to offer easy access to Indiantown r esidents interested in furthering their education as fullor part-time students but who dont have the time or resources to travel to the Chastain Campus in Stuart several days a week. I t s really just more convenient, said Elizabeth G askin, Provost of Martin C ounty for IRSC. The less (students) have to worry about travel and the time it takes to get to class the more time theyll have to devote to their studies. Fi ve classes will be offered at the new center including Spanish for daily use I, college computing, child development and education, intermediate algebra and English composition I. S ome are basic classes r equired for a degree, others, such as Child development and Spanish, were r equested by residents and business people in the area that IRSC surveyed in order to find out what classes would be most beneficial for them. W e ve really been trying to see what needs we could meet out there, Ms. Gaskin said. Were trying to provide them with more r esources. The center will also operate under set hours. Whereas before hours at the center va r ied depending on when a staff member was present, now the center will be open 20 hours a week, noon to 8 p .m. on Mondays and W ednesdays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays, for classes and the use of computers. H opefully we can attract students for whom education has not been a convenient option, Ms. Gaskin said. IRSC hosted a registration night on Dec. 16 to help potential and current students with the application and registration process, giving them a chance to ask questions and get all the information they required. Ms. Gaskin said the goal for the new site is to meet the needs of the community and maybe expand the offerings list in the future to contribute to the local workforce and economy in a positive way. C urrent and potential I ndiantown students can apply and register online at www.irsc.edu or ask questions about the new center by calling Leticia Martinez, I ndiantown Representative, at (772) 597-5130.

Acomplaint Ihear often is the internet is down. Every time someone says that to me I cant help but picture in my mind computers all ov er the world stopped in their tracks and displaying some type of error. Email messages no longer bouncing from node to node, Netflix accounts standing still with an hourglass spinning and turning, Google searches stalled and coming up empty. What exactly do you mean the internet is down? I ask (usually while looking at a fully functioning internet connection at my desk). I know that people count on the internet for so much but when one facet off the internet stops working does it really mean that the whole internet is d own ? No, not quite. I imagine its kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal or a message saying that the number you are trying to reach is not available. Does that mean the phone system is down? No its just a problem connecting to that phone number. Or another way to look at it is seeing a Road Closed sign at the end of the street. Does that mean the entire highway system is down? No, not quite. When someone calls me and says that the internet is down I know I have to do some question asking to determine exactly what they mean by that statement. Just what problem do they have exactly to lead them to believe that the internet is down? M ost of the time, after asking a few simple questions and listening closely to the answers, the problem is one website that the caller is trying to access. They click a shortcut and the hourglass starts to twirl until it finally times out and displays an error message that the page cannot be displayed but does this mean that the internet is r eally down? I usually ask them to try accessing another site if they were trying to access Y ahoo.com and got that message I ask them to try Google. If they were trying to access Google then I ask them to try Yahoo. Usually they are unable to access one page but are able to access the other showing clearly that the internet is indeed up. Or maybe its an email problem they try to access email but get an error message. Sure I know its frustrating when something people rely on every day suddenly stops working but to declare that the internet is down goes a little overboard as the problem is usually not as severe. So how does one figure out what is really going on? Well there are a lot of tools and techniques out there that can be used to discover the extent of the problem and one of my favorite tools can be used to check the status of a particular site and that tool is called DownF orEveryoneOrJustMe.co m. The idea behind the site is that it is sometimes difficult to determine if a problem accessing a particular web address is a local problem (that is a problem with the local computer from which you are trying to access the site) or a problem with the w eb address you are trying to reach. When you have a problem accessing a web address try going to www.DownForEveryoneOr Ju stMe.com. If the site opens then you know right off the bat that the internet is not down but r ather you are having a problem accessing a site (kind of like dialing a phone number and getting a fast busy signal). If DownForEveryoneOrJu stMe.com does open then type in the web address you are trying toA6 Martin County THIS WEEKS LUCKY THIS WEEKS LUCKYBUMPER STICKER VEHICLE Is this your license plate number?

Along with the snow and holiday games, the event featured hay rides around Indian RiverSide Park, holiday carols, and a chance to experience how other cultures around the world celebrate their holidays.Sevin Bullwinkle staff photographer Whats the big deal?I dont know why theres such an issue made with people saying happy holidays to one another. How in the world is that offensive? Do those who are up in arms about not hearing Merry Christmas really that darn self-centered and shallow that they are making T-shirts, taking to the airwaves and demanding that they are told one thing instead of another? How about they should just be happy their grumpy rump is told to be happy, merry or whatever the case may be. Who cares... is the season really about the greeting or is about being kind to one another? Its so sad.Whats in a word?Let's keep Christ in Christmas.Happy holidays?B usiness plays a major role in determining the direction of a nation. At Christmas time, we are all too often greeted by "Happy Holidays." But, we can push back using our purchasing power. The next time we hear this politically correct nonsense, we are out-of-here. We don't have to accept it. What is marriage equality?Does marriage equality include brother and sister, or mother and son or father and daughter? And what about my dog? Do leftists believe I have the right to marry my F ido?Ignorance aboundsAfter reading all the rants that are aimed toward the r ecipients of welfare, its quite obvious that ignorance is everywhere. Why doesnt this idiot just move? Find that r epublican utopia with no crime, no welfare, educated souls who feel the same way you do. Well, never mind the educated part... its obvious you fell short of a full education. If you did have one, youd understand a little more about your society. God help you if you fall on hard times and lose a job or have to bow your head for help. There has to be something more important to take up the v aluable space in the paper like, a cartoon or a Sudoku puzzle. W elfare is child slaveryW ell, kudos to those who have helped suppress the violence in the area. However, has anyone taken notice of the police blotter? Its a half-page young adults being arrested for dealing drugs. Now, this is just speculation but Im betting that some of these kids come from welfare homes where the kids had no family guidance, but a young parent who had multiple kids just to get a welfare check. Now theyre grown up and have a lack of education because their parents had no education. And all of this is brought to you from the federal government. Yes, many people I talk to, where ever I go cant stand this: when a young woman has a kid and she never even went to school, and then she has another, is most definitely wrong. Welfare should have been fixed as well but not by our current president because he wants socialism. I heard a local politician, a democrat, make the most sense by telling people to quit relying on the government so much. Well heres an idea: with these young kids that get busted for repeat offenses arrest the parents too for child neglect. They neglected to discipline the kid or kids that they had. Hold the kid and the parent accountable for the crime. Fort Pierce is a nice place but has a long way to go. People want jobs here, but they need to clean up the neighborhoods. Shame on them for just accepting the government as their only r ecourse. Theres nothing someone cant attain in life to better themselves, they just have to apply themselves. Go to a park where theres wildlife and you'll see signs posted that say, "Dont feed the animals." Why? Because they become dependent on being fed. And, just like welfare r ecipients, they become dependent on the government to take care of them. Having and using kids to create an income is slavery. Thanks for voting for ObamaI would just like to thank all those from the treasure coast who voted for Obama. With the mentality that he would deliver you a much better life, now you have a deficit which is off the charts and a European nation that cant stand us, all brought to you by the people who want something for nothing. So much for your socialization... He re s an idea: take care of your own selves, create your o wn destiny by way of getting an education, not have more babies to be on welfare and creating more poverty. Heck most of you cant read. By the way instead of sending the country further into the toilet, do those of us a favor that v alue genuine hard work: dont vote if you dont know what yo u re re ally voting for. If youre just seeing what you can get out of other people, go jump in lake. I guess I had to keep it clean. Yes, I would really like to see all these young single mothers take care of themselves and not at the expense of others. Eliminate socialism. There are many people who became wealthy due to learning and creating and it wasnt from welfare. Back to the snowbirdsI must admit that many of the so-called citizens that call themselves southerners and true Floridians should read a bit better. You see, Florida was never one of the 13 colonies, so unless everyone who lives here is true Native American, your heritage is all from the so-called snowbirds. It was the influx of northerners in the late 1800s who came here as tourists and then decided to stay and start businesses and pump money into the Florida region. So before you start bad mouthing snowbirds, look to your history and learn something besides blaming your own faults on the northerners. When the snowbirds go home its still is the so called southerners that are rude, believe traffic laws don't apply to them and complain when they close up their shop. Yet when was the last time you passed the big box stores and patronized those mom and pop shops that built Florida, the so called state you call home? Personally, I have yet to see a southerner that can work as hard as a northerner or as quick. Don't take me wrong, I have met a few fine people from the so-called south. But otherwise, a six-pack and thinking my vehicle is in the next r ace at Daytona just doesn't appeal to me. Case in point if not for the Northerners Florida would still be a swampland.No amnestyW ith Obamacare threatening to increase prices for all of us, it is unbelievable that some politicians still want to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. If we allow 11 or 12 million illegals to stay here, the cost would be astronomical, not just for health care, but for food stamps, public housing, education, and a long list of other taxpayer provided benefits. Fortunately, Marco Rubio has finally changed his mind and come to his senses. The term "earned path to citizenship" is foolish code for undeserved amnesty.L ove instead of hateLove can build many bridges between us all, and hate can only destroy them. Let us always remember the love instead of the hate, for hate will destroy us all. Let us keep in our hearts that men are men, and women are women no matter where you are from or what you look like. Let it be remembered that we are one race, the human r ace, and we should learn more about love and less about hate. Got something to say?

MARTIN COUNTY The Humane S ociety of the Treasure Coast is counting on the public to bring some joy to their shelter pets this holiday season.

Red Cross issues safety tips to prevent holiday home fires The American Red Cross urges residents to take extra precautions with cooking and decorating around the holidays. C ooking is the leading cause of home fires, and as people are cooking, entertaining, and stringing lights this holiday season, we r e urging that they take safety measures to ensure that their homes and loved ones are safe from the threat of fire, said Carlos C astillo, Regional Disaster Pr ogram Officer. Christmas Day, Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving are the top three days for cooking fires, according to the National Fire Prevention Association. Nationally, the Red Cross responds to a disaster on average every eight minutes, and the vast majority of them are home fires. The Red Cross has some simple steps everyone can follow to prevent home fires around the holidays:Holiday entertaining Test your smoke alarms. Check food regularly while cooking and remain in the home while cooking. U se a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Enforce a kid-free z one in the cooking area and make children stay at least three feet away from the stove. Keep anything that can catch fire away from the stove, oven or any appliance in the kitchen that generates heat. Clean cooking surfaces on a regular basis to prevent grease buildup. Purchase a fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen. Contact the local fire department to receive training on the proper use of extinguishers.Holiday decorating Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant. Keep children, pets and decorations away from lit candles. Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet. Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturers instructions for the number of LED strands to connect. Some strings of lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both. Use clips, not nails, to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged. Keep decorations away from windows and doors. Pe ople should also download the free American Red Cross First Aid app, which provides instant access to information on handling the most common first aid emergencies. The apps can be downloaded from the A pple App Store and the Google Play Store for Android by searching for American Red Cross or by visiting r edcross.org/mobileapps P eople can test their knowledge on how to prevent home fires by taking the Fire Safety Quiz and can learn more about fire prevention by visiting redcross.org.

Firefighters make teddy bears for patients P ALM BEACH GARDENS While children everywhere on Christmas morning jump from bed to see whats under the tree, the ones at St. Marys Hospital will wake up in a setting far from the comforts of home. Fo r tunately, theyll havecomfy teddy bears to cuddle themselves to sleep thanks to Martin County Fi r efighters. On Dec. 11, more than a dozen Martin County Firefighters arrived at the B uild-A-Bear Workshop in the Gardens Mall in West P alm Beach to stuff, stitch and accessorize more than 70 toy bears for sick children this holiday season. A lthough we cant give them a cure for Christmas, we can still give them the gift of happiness and take their minds off of their conditions, even if its just for a short time, says John D avidson, president of the Ma r tin County Firefighters Association. They deserve to feel as special as they truly are, and well do anything in our power to make sure that happens. S isters and Stuart residents Destiny and Jade N eumann were only 9 and 11, respectively, when they first got involved in donating several teddy bears to the children at St. Marys H ospital. Now teenagers, they helped involve Martin C ounty Firefighters in the effort. The bears were handdelivered them on Dec. 19 to the children receiving treatment at the Palm B each Childrens Hospital at St. Marys Medical Center.

MARTIN COUNTY Its Dr Michael Hennings mission to eliminate pain and bring smiles back to his patients faces in as little time as possible using so much more than conventional chir opractic techniques. He s one of as few as 100 chiropractors in the nation that can also say theyre board certified neurologists and he specializes in treating nerve-related problems at his P alm City practice that opened in July. Mr. Henning grew up in P alm City and received his doctorate in 2010 then went on to practice as an associate with other doctors as he worked toward his post-doctorate in neurology. That training makes me that much more capable to treat the problems people come in with, Mr. Henning said. Now its his pleasure to make people feel better faster using advanced diagnostic testing to pinpoint issues so he can offer solutions. M y area of expertise is between where conservative care stops and surgery begins, Mr. Henning said. Ne rv e-related problems are an area not often covered by traditional chiropractic care and he wants to fill the gap in treatment. He treats headaches, vertigo, numbness in the hands and feet, sciatica, even disc herniations that many dont realize are treatable. He also offers massage and physical and spinal decompression therapies as part of his regimen, whatever it takes to make his patients better. He uses many advanced testing procedures that assess the heath of nerves and muscles to identify underlying causes of pain and discomfort, procedures that offer vital information to r emedy problems quicker than trial and error. W e re able to make people feel better faster than the traditional chiropractor. Mr. H enning said. We make people feel better when others cant. Thats what gets him out of bed in the morning and he invites anyone with back or neck pain, headaches, pinched nerves or any other discomfort to come in for a free consultation and initial exam and x-rays. He ll use his wealth of wisdom and training to devise solutions that get patients back to feeling themselves in as few visits as possible.

Once the holiday season comes to a close many of us will have an abundance of holiday plants to nur tur e for an entir e y ear so w e can enjo y them again next y ear One of the most popular gifts of the holiday season ar e Amar yllis bulbs Amar yllis bulbs ar e r elatively easy to take of. I f y ou give them adequate water and br ight light they should bloom in about six w eeks The best way to water is to keep the plants evenly moist. Do not water so much that the plants ar e sitting in standing water K eep the plants on a windo wsill or on a pr otected por ch for the best r esults I f y our bulbs ar e too small in siz e y ou may have to wait till next y ear befor e y ou get blooms to for m. If you r eceived a N or folk Pine as a gift or bought one for y ourself, y ou can successfully gr o w them indoors As a matter of fact, I r ecommend that y ou either gr o w them indoors or plant them in a container I do not r ecommend planting them outdoors These tr ees do not far e w ell in hurr icane for ce winds and they gr o w extr emely lar ge W ith that said, N or folk Pines will do extr emely w ell in an indoor envir onment as long as ther e is ample light. P osition y our plant near a windo w sill so it will r eceive a bit of sun daily These plants will do best if they ar e water ed on a r egular schedule K eep the plants evenly moist but not dr ipping w et. Do not allo w the plants to sit in standing water N or folk Pines also enjo y a humid envir onment so if the plant is indoors y ou may find it beneficial to lightly mist the plant fr om time to time to help incr ease the humidity ar ound the plant. I mpr oper water ing can r esult in needle loss that will not r egener ate itself. I n addition, never tr y to pr une the tr ee to shape it. The only pr uning that should be done on this plant is for basic maintenance such as tr imming off dead or y ello w lo w er br anches In the past I have discussed about ho w to choose and nur tur e P oinsettia plants dur ing the holidays These delicate plants can also be planted outdoors when the season is o v er F irst, choose a location that is shelter ed away fr om str ong winds and the full dir ect r ays of the summer sun. Also choose an ar ea wher e y ou can contr ol the ar tificial light at night so y ou can get y our plants to bloom next season with minimal effor t. U se a good quality potting mix to place y our plants in the gr ound and be sur e it is a w ell-dr ained location. I t might be wise to r epot y our plant in a lar ge pot until all danger of fr ost and cold w eather has past. M ar ch would be a gr eat tr ansition month to place y our pr iz e in the gr ound. Once the plant is planted and established, be sur e to tr im off all the old r ed br acts Y ou will need to do this in or der to get blooms next season. Now comes the tr icky par t. S tar ting ar ound N o vember or sooner the plant is going to need long nights in or der to r e-bloom. D ur ing this twomonth per iod y ou will need to eliminate as much as possible all signs of ar tificial lighting at night. K eep the ar ea as dar k as possible This is the key to getting new blooms for the holidays One of the biggest pr oblems y ou might encounter with a poinsettia plant is r oot r ot. Often times y ou will see poinsettia plants wilting as if they w er e not water ed in days Y ou go to check the soil and it is still moist. S o why is the plant wilting? A ctually the poinsettia most likely has a r oot fungus or disease that is pr eventing the plant fr om taking on water That explains the wilted condition. This is usually caused fr om the plant being in soil that ov erly moist. This condition will almost always lead to a dead plant. I n addition, y ou must also keep watchful ey e out for whiteflies T r eat them at the ver y first indication with Or thenex. W ith a little luck and some skill, y ou should be r ewar ded with some gr eat holiday color in y our gar den next season.

Merry Christmas! H appy Hanukkah! (Y es, I know it's late.) H appy Kwanzaa! Whatever y our religious belief or absence thereof, I want to wish you and yours the very best this holiday season. This is a great time of year. It s a time for families and friends to be together... a time for love and harmony. As in many years past, we have friends, family, neighbors or even ourselves who will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women make every day. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how much you love them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. T imes may be tough, but there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. At this time of year we all tend to be more humane, kind and caring. My wish is that we would keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I now present you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.
